Fresh update on "el paso" discussed on Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks
"I've been railing against us for years. Our bowl alliance is terrible. It's a joke, like in third place, Pac Pac 12 team is playing like This place. This place been T teams in El Paso on December 31st in like the fifth place SEC team is playing New Year's Day. In a big time game. I think that everything from top to bottom, I think the leadership needs to take a real hard look at it. Because if I don't see it getting better anytime, stand me when your top coach when you're Mike Leach is going to Mississippi State, which is probably a bottom, you know, two or three school That's no good, so I think it's I don't see it improving. They've got to figure out a way to get the talent back because it Later. I remember talking to a couple of years ago, Clinton played Alabama here in Santa Clara and I will not watch those guys run around. I don't know if the entire pack 12 conference had a gag because started On the offensive or defensive line for one of those teams, and they're just They're bigger and badder and better on their recruiting better, and they're developing better, and the results show for themselves and their marketing that their marketing themselves better. That's the thing. It's not just athletes heckle. I'm here in Walnut Creek. My kid's going to college next year. He's got a handful of buddies. Who are going to SEC schools. I'm like why, you know what do you do it, But, you know, the kids see those teams they see the you know. And then having the national championship out here was a huge huge boon to the A. C C in the S E. C. On DH. And then if, if they want a playing this year in the Pac 12 doesn't play. I mean, it may be over as faras this the recruiting battle, but You know, what I want is a little bit of a self serving. Prophecy were like you Look at the top top 25 for college football before that before. All this happened, I think Only organ was in the top 10 and there might have only been two or three teams in the top 25. Right. So without those high preseason rankings, they're gonna lose get knocked off and they're just going to fall further back with a little bit rigged a preseason rankings certainly skewed toward the SNC, but also that there I would argue. Our teams aren't as good as some of those themes from the FTC and Big 10. So you get a proven big bowl season in the Pac 12 doesn't do it, and you know that organ played. Big non conference game last year. Couldn't get it done, but thinking that you were talking about you know, you detailed what you saw with recruiting weekend for Stanford. You bring in some some guys you want to play on your football team, and there's 10 15,000 people at Stanford Stadium. And, you know you talked about that the people in charge of Pac 12 athletic, specifically football. They have to decide whether You know, they really want to be about that big time college football life. My question is, Do you think they care? Do you think it's that important to them to be a football centric football forward school? You know where you know it's not over. If your football program is like the front porch if your front porch is nice people take your whole house is nice, which is why you have a lot of these schools that are not as academically. Inclined his Pac 12 schools in Big 10 schools. They put their pro football program out front because they're academics aren't a great University of Alabama that hard in school to get into. It's just not. It's not that hard of a school to get through. It's just not other SEC schools are exactly like the Florida State, eight that hard of a school to get into and navigate through, especially compared to Ah, Michigan or compared to You know, obviously, Stanford, So my question is. Do you think the Pac 12 is to a certain extent kind of not happy with who they are and what they're doing, But they're at least okay with it. Tom cares. You care. We care because we're fans of the sport. We're living out here. We want to see it do well. Put the general public on the West Coast. They don't really care about college football impact will football. So is it important to the pack to of schools to really be about that life? Because if you commit to it It's a pretty big commitment and you start to invite scrutiny from people who don't think it's a good idea to be that football forward. I think it's important in the athletic department. I think if you asked some of the professors, I don't think they would care. But the athletic department, um, does care. There's people whose jobs it is to care. I do think it's interesting. You know, I played not super long ago 20 years ago, and we weren't really that good. My junior. We went three and eight. We still get 40 50,000 people write in the state for team has been incredible. Greatest run in the history of Stanford football last 10 years. They're still getting 15,000. So there's there's I think less interest generally. You know they've been so Stanford's been so lucky to have seen Andrew Luck and Christian McCaffrey and some of the top players go through over the last decade, but there still hasn't been the fervor that I even felt like they were. You know the fans when we went to the Rose Bowl in 2000. That was a big time people came out of the woodwork and I don't know. Maybe There's just for whatever reason, the culture today Les, at least locally inclined to be hard court. Put me on college football fans. I think they I think there's ways around like if I'm Stanford, and we're going, it's Wednesday and we Ah, bunch of unsold tickets. How does every high school kid that lives within 10 miles? Not given a freak like, bring your team screwed and watch the game Philip the seat. But there are ways that they can bring people into the fold and build that community that I think was there When I was there, there's still the boosters, and there's still something tailgates and things like that. But the general public I think just cares much less about college football early Stanford football probably buried football than they did 20 years ago. At least that's what it seems. But there wouldn't be ways to Fill the stadium up. I've got to imagine right again. There's there's lots of people who I think would love going to a game if they just have the axis of the cardboard cutouts land around. Yeah, but but to me when it comes to selling your university It was like other schools in other regions have to u C L A doesn't have that problem there. Californians who can't get into Cal doesn't have that problem. I don't know about Arizona and Arizona State, but I don't get a sense that they have a problem. Arizona State's got 52,000 people going their organs got the film night Sugar daddy money, but they don't have a problem there. What if they don't have a problem Getting California kids? To go to Oregon and I just the idea that these schools have to use their football program to sell themselves. That ain't the case in the Pac 12 because, well, it's the Pac 12. I think you're right. I think the Pac 12 the university's Dr B. I think if you were to ask, the leaders of the university would say the university drive the athletic The athletics or a nice add on to what is a great institution in another part of the country, the athletics try mean ruin Johnny Manziel on text Anyone on that huge run and they saw an increase. And applications by like 800% him in them, and they already had one. I was born in college station. My parents went to a minimum..

Femicide and the Forgotten Women of Juarez with Oz Woloshyn and Monica Ortiz Uribe
"For nearly thirty years, women in the Mexican border city of Juarez. have been disappearing many of them turning up dead in mass graves. We. Don't know who the killers are very few have been charged and fewer convicted. My guest this week. Our odds volition and Monica Ortiz Rebbe. Of the amazing podcast forgotten the women of what is the final episode two, which is now available, they are incredible journalists with an infuriating story to tell. If! You've ever been to war with disposing of bodies, Israelis. You don't have to dig to her dirt. You're digging through saying. Just across the bridge from El Paso Texas, hundreds of young women have been tanning up dead in Juarez Mexico. Many artists covered in mass graves. Some have strange symbols coughed. Some. have their hands bound with shoelaces? And? Everyone from the families of the victims to the United States. FBI has tried to uncover who is behind these crimes. But one thing is clear. The crimes are connected. They're not just random victims. The women were picked. They were selected I mean there could be an abduction in broad daylight. No one saw it. No one talked about it. These are like ghosts. The numbers started to rise, and then a lot of theories were floated up the gangs serial murder. The cartels organ traffickers the possibility of some sort of strange devil worship. It's been fifteen years since I first heard about these murders, and I've been haunted ever since. How is it possible? These crimes remain unsolved on journey to find out we talk to victims, families FBI agents and a psychologist who claims the new one of the culprits. We visit, the site of one of the mass graves and traveled to a dangerous part downtown. Where many of the women disappeared? I Voloshin, I'm one of the hosts of Forgotten Women of Juarez. The podcast explores what happens when this become targets, and when the judiciary is compromised, I'm fighting for bust institutions and freedom of speech. Sorry, not sorry I'm Monique, our three, they co host of the podcast forgotten. The women of what is I believe workers everywhere should earn a fair wage and women ought to live free from violence Nazari Period I. WanNa give the listeners some back story on what's happening in Juarez. How many women have gone missing in the crimes not being? Even really investigated by authorities and then go into why you felt it was important to do. The podcast I first started working on this podcast of several trips to the Texas Mexico border specifically El Paso Texas and In Mexico. And it took me several trips before I learned something that everybody in the region knows, which is that? Since the early nineteen nineties, hundreds of women have turned up dead in Horace, and many of them met incredibly brutal fates, which was evident from that bodies when they were discovered. That been five mass graves of Women Discovering Juarez since nineteen ninety five. And yet, all of this was happening right across the border from one of America's safest cities, a prosperous suburban Texans city, and so I was just very curious. How could this be happening? How could the crimes not be solved? And it ended up being this journey with Monica that open up. All kinds of other questions particularly learn things like the FBI had tried to solve the crimes, not once not twice, but three times. When the mass grave was discovered, and suspects confessed harder Crawford was the FBI special agent in charge of El Paso. Is Office was just a few miles away from the site. The mass grave and he taken a special interest in the murders of women in Juarez and was following this case closely as a potential breakthrough. You could sense that the pressure was mounting. Political pressure public pressure international pressure. The families and relatives and friends of the disappeared. Women were allowed. Those women would hold use. Mourning the deaths and George attention to that. That was huge. There was all kinds of attention from the international press. People like Jennifer Lopez. Eve ensler involved and yet these crimes remain stubbornly unsolved wasn't clear. Who was killing these hundreds of women, and why and it was a story of vulnerability, but also a story of the deep paradox irony of the border that many of these women were working in factories, which were American owned could see across the border into a Passo a city of. A Fred safety enormous safety by comparison and that Alpes Owens could see back into war as many of them had relatives there many of them. Have Friends there and yet. Those this seeming inability to do anything and that struck me as something which was I had to know more

Eric Ward on Racial Justice
"As. Our nation continues to grapple with the best ways to make progress on critical issues of racial justice. We here at people of the pod felt that we needed to hear from Eric. Award Eric is the Executive Director of the Western states center a civil. Rights Organization based in the Pacific Northwest Mountain states he is also a national voice, racial justice and a leader in the black community speaking up urgently. Urgently for the need to fight antisemitism, which he identifies as a leading driver of other forms of Bigotry Eric thank you so much for joining us I'm so glad to be here with you. All thanks for inviting me now as someone on the front lines of the Civil Rights Movement today, the first thing I want to ask is how are you? How are you doing this really busy, really crazy time. I think like everyone else I'm exhausted. I'm carrying a lot of weight. A lot of responsibility I'm not alone in that we are moving fast soaks at the community level has really mobilized around civil rights, and you know it's a responsibility to support that leadership as much as possible I think I'm both nervous and. We are watching kind of in a way, the end of one age a period of time, and the beginning of another, and we're kind of in this inbetween points, and so it feels a little chaotic can. We don't know what's next I. Don't know about the rest of folks, but that brings anxiety to me, but also joy Reid I watch folks every day across communities across religions, really coming together, trying to find one another struggling with one another and I think that bodes well so mile this chapter. The book is not ending particularly well. I think it tells us the story fact will. Yeah. We're clearly in something of a moment. Right? Historically politically. We're in a moment and I guess the question for someone like you and for anyone who wants to kind of be a part of making this elastic changes. How can we take a moment and turn it into something that really changes our society, so you know at the macro level I like wow, you know we are actually finally poised to acknowledge that everyone in our society are fully actualize human beings. That may not seem like a really kind of radical thing, but it's taken a lot of centuries for us to get to this point and I'm actually really excited to be here, right? Having a strong democracy. Means having strong participation, that participation doesn't happen if we only consider part of our society as fully human so at the macro level. I feel like. Wow you know. We are getting close to getting this right. And after ten thousand years you know or forty thousand years I think we finally earned the right to that right, so I want to own that and I. Hope folks own map for a second, and if it makes you feel good, good I so now here's what we should do. Its APP, we should get serious about some very specific things so. Twentieth Century. Policing has come to an end. It is a system that no longer works for the inclusive democracy that we are, and it is time for a twenty first century version of it that is grounded in community, safety, right, and the prosperity of our community them I think that that is exciting and I think we should be encouraging those conversations. We should be continuing to encourage folks to be dialogue with one another I. An I'll just be playing, right? We can't be a society that seals. It is okay to shoot and kill unarmed. Black people in our society are quite frankly folks were unarmed and running away. It is just not becoming a democracy so i. you know I think policing as. As a policy conversation is a topic of the day it will be the topic of the year will be the topic of next year, and we should not allow the sacrifices of those at the community level been working on these issues over the last three weeks or the last three decades to go to waste right now. So that's one. The second is look. We have to get a hold of the mission oriented hate crimes, and what I mean by mission oriented I. Don't mean the average hate crime. We experienced. You know that the random hate crime those have to be tackled, too, but untuckit about this rise of mission oriented targeting of vulnerable communities and their institutions whether we're talking about Anti Semitism. Racism. Talking about the targeted Latinos in El Paso or the targeting of Jews in Pittsburgh at a targeting a blacks in Charleston seeks in Wisconsin. It is time for our government institutions just step up and protect its citizens and its residents and A. We don't need new laws to do that. We need to actually start using the laws that are on the books. We have to bring transparency to those who seek to try to destroy democracy by terrorizing folks in our community. Those are the two things we could be right on top of right now.
Saharan Dust Cloud Arrives At The U.S. Gulf Coast, Bringing Haze
"It's a journey. That's a weeks and spend thousands of miles across an ocean floating on currents of air today, a massive cloud of dust from the Sahara desert arrives in the southeastern United States to walk us through this meteorological phenomenon. We are joined by Professor Marshall Shepherd. The Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of Georgia welcome. Thank you for having me okay now. I've seen the satellite images, but. But tell us what it's GonNa. Look like from the ground as this wave of dust from the Sahara arrives in the United States. You know we give these things every year and some are bigger than others. These are this year quite large and so I think that's why it's garnering much attention. Typically you lose the blue sky for more hazy Milky Sky. You tend to see more vivid sunsets and sunrises because. Because of the scattering properties of the dust and interacting with the sunlight, so those are sort of the optical effects, but I think people that suffer from allergy to dust or particular matter, they actually might not find it so amusing. They may have some health issues Why is it so much bigger this year than normal? I think one thing that happened this year are e.. Is that that dust in the? The Hell region in parts of Africa sat there, and just collected because the the wind system this African easterly jet meteorologist talk about it took a bit longer to kind of get itself going, and once it gets going, you can belch and Burp that dust out into the Atlantic, and that's what we're seeing now. Because there was somewhat of a delay, there was a lot more desk sitting there the build up. All right so pros you said good sunrises and sunsets, cons, people who have health problems might find that the respiratory problems are worse. What else is this dust system? GonNa do I mean on the whole is a good thing or a bad thing you know one of the things is an earth scientist. The Earth is so connected, and this is just another example so these dust storms they actually can fertilize the oceans in parts of Amazonia. They're carrying things that really help those ecosystems. Ecosystems but on the flip side of that there's been studies recently say they can actually carry pathogens as well so when you think about Mosquitos as a vector born disease carrier some argued that these dust storms can be vectors, they can carry pathogens another perhaps positive however is that the dust? If there were to be a hurricane forming out over the Atlantic hurricanes don't like the dust. If the dust gets into those forming systems, they can weaken those storms quite a bit. How much? Much bigger. Is this one than what we would see in a typical year? You know it's interesting. I saw a colleague tweet scale. They were using some data from NASA NASA Sir several satellites up monitoring air, quality and air constituents, and literally this event was off the chart. It wasn't even the same type of event. It was just so far off the plot scale, and so four people who study atmospheric science like you is a moment totally nerd out and like remember where you. You were when the Great Sahara Dust of two thousand twenty came across the Atlantic I th I think it is I I've seen some sort of very hyperbolic terms like the Godzillas dust storm. Those types of things I don't i. don't tend to like us such hyperbole when I talk about these things, but it is an anomaly event. My good friend and colleague Tom Gill at the University of Texas El. Paso is an expert on dust storms I know he's geeking out on this. I hosted a podcast call, weather, geeks or the weather channel, and we use the term geeking out. I'm certain it. Scientists like Tom. Gillard geeking out over this dust storm. Marshall Shepherd is the Director of the atmospheric scientists program at the University of and former president of the American meteorological. Society thanks for talking with us about this monster dust storm. Thank you for having me.

The Moment Of Clarity
"Well welcome back fellow salespeople and do. I have a story for you today. I know everybody has different reasons why they got into the sales business. And I'm going to share with you one of the reasons. Why sometimes you feel like your whole life was built just for like one little situation. You're like oh it all makes sense. Sometimes you have that moment sometimes i. I'm one month I made A. I made a hundred thousand dollars this one month. Selling a particular product a hundred grand and I thought to myself man. I got it figured out and I remember thinking this must be how the Golfer feels you know when they get the whole in one. Are you only get that or the Bowler when they got? I just shot a perfect game. I got it I got the whole thing. And then of course. The next month was zero. You figure out a way to come to that but I I enjoy zero just as much. I enjoy the whole thing. You've got to figure it out and I can tell you. There's a time where it all made sense to me. I had to do with my my hitchhiking trip. If you haven't heard past episodes about my hitchhiking trip are or maybe having been talked about it those twenty one years old and I had my first Business Adelie. Dj's Country Delhi and my friends were coming home from college. Maybe I was twenty two coming home from college and I'm looking around like heck you know. I think I missed something here. And so I set my store up with a manager and I took off or turn out to be eight months. Took no money just got jobs along the way but one time I was in Texas and I remember I was in Texas because men Texas Texas is big. If you've not been to Texas I mean it just it goes for ever if you're walking and that's what I was some days. I just wanted to walk you know and I was trying to find myself and so I'm just walking. People would stop tried to pick me up. I'm like I'm actually Texas a funny thing. One time I was I guess near El Paso and I was walking all day. You know I probably twenty miles at day thirty miles. I don't know I was just walking. And some guy stopped in the afternoon and picked me up and he goes. Listen the only reason why I'm picking you up right now is because I saw you on the same road when I was going to work this morning so I let him as sometime in Texas while I'm walking and I'm not necessarily a real religious guy though I do believe in God and I was. I was walking and I was literally. I was stopped in my tracks. It was like there was a like from the from the sun a poll. That would right now through my head and through my feet and just anchored me to the ground. I couldn't move by one real spiritual moment. I couldn't move. I didn't know what was going. I actually think I started weeping. I was crying and I'm like what is what is going on and after a while it just passed that I moved on but for that brief moment I had pure clarity that if the whole world would end of all the comforts and conveniences of life would end the age would be all right. I would figure out a way to get by. That's when I decided to be a sales person. That's why I decided whatever I was going to do with my businesses however I was going to grow my business. It wasn't through analytics. It wasn't through saving money. It wasn't through accounting. Was going to be driving more sales more profit into that company by an essence. Brokering deals between somebody who had a need or want for something and then a product to service that need and I was going to capture something on the inside because I knew that I could do that from anywhere on the planet at any time and now with the Internet. It's just that much easier to find those buyers and final sellers and put them together. I realized then this is the best business in the world. And it's the best business in the world for you as well and I know there was a moment you just fell into sales. Then you can easily fall out of it but if you if you run towards it baby it's a it's a good way to live. The practice of the art of sales is the practice of personal development. And you could only get better with practice. Well that was a fun story. What do you think of that Mister producer man. I hope you enjoyed it.

Interview With Vivian Nava-Schellinger
"You grew up in Texas yet. Groping Al Paso Borden Rave and educated. Most of my life in El Paso. And you're an attorney right. Yeah I'm a non practicing. What do they call it? Here's the a recovering attorney guests Sosa? Oh turning bed definitely were trained attorney but then decided to do something else live took them in another direction or they changed the direction. But yeah interesting but you have an interesting story because you're Atlanta so you had the trajectory F- like where you wanted to be. When did you decide that you wanted to become a lawyer? Oh my God you know. It's funny because I when I hear people say oh I you know I was in college and I didn't know what I wanted to do or a dotted and I totally can kind of picture what that feels like but for me my earliest memory of thinking what I wanted to do with my life was to be an attorney. My mom went to law school. I Inner Family College. Grad first-generation scholarships all of the beautiful academic story. I do think that a lot of Latinos do have that we may be you know. We highlight but just not enough sometime. She really lead that example for me and showed me that law school was going to be a place that wouldn't necessarily teach me how to be a lawyer but would teach me how to think like one and I think for me even at a really really early age I wanted to know what it would like to think critically about things and not just accepting that they were and kind of go along with your day. Maybe that came a lot from my parents. My Dad was in federal law enforcement. You know there was always like the other layer of why people did what they did and there was also that layer of I get there was all around me always to not only immerse yourself in your community but to protect it so I think at a at a really young age again like I said I don't I can't put it like a like an age on it because I don't remember not wanting to do that for you an only child. I have a sister. She's about five years over five years younger than me. But I will say that I think Mike variances as an only child for the first five years of my life I think they were enrich in a way because my parents did wait a very long time actually to have meet my parents. Mary fifteen years before they had the right. And then that's unheard of now in a sense. Maybe maybe a little bit more right but even then right nineteen eighty six. When I was born my parents had already been married for fifteen years. They had traveled the world. I guide was in the FBI. He was one of the first Chicanos you know Mexican American to get into the academy among the first and actually got into the FBI Academy with J. Edgar Hoover was retiring. So I mean that how far back back goes then you know I think that whole experience in and of itself was really again be too like parents. That were pillared for me. Guide me in this direction and so also say that I think as an only child for the first five years of my life. I had a real great sense of duty to what I needed to be doing with my life so I almost feel like. I grew up kind of quick in terms of knowing that there had to be something bigger than yourself and so having a little sister and I don't WanNa get choked up because you know we can kind of go into a little bit about. She's just kind of warrior to me but having a little sister for me became a sense of duty so yeah I think those are things that the kind of circle around my story if you're sharing and I think your story is awesome because a lot of times what is Brown people that had different generations. What generation third third. I'm second generation Alpaca win on my mom by Third Generation. On my dad that we've been Pessoa longtime were crosstalk rate do Mexico This lake right there. Yeah what it is right there so we haven't been in a while but we used to go every Sunday. You know we Goethe's Mikhaylo. I guess my parents will now know that I went on a much earlier. Age or other reasons like yeah I mean you know. If they're sisters idiot are truly just a pair and it's a beautiful beautiful beautiful experience. I think to grow up in such a place and yeah I mean I grew up going. We go eat on Sunday. We go get groceries. We'd go you know we needed to get something framed. We need cowboy boots. I mean that's just what you did and for me as a child again being third generation it was never a fear or or an oddity right like some people who are really far removed. It's like Oh you know. I went to Mexico holder world and I feel like for me. My parents made a conscious effort. And one thing I've been mentioned. Is that my mom? My mom the first before my sister was born. I can remember her speaking to me. Entirely exclusively in Spanish and then my father spoke meaningless so we would be in the car or sitting at the dinner table and my parents were talking to me and both languages and I was responding in in bold thirty sometimes singlish finish though the code switching with like lit was happening And then I would go to school and you know in English and coming home and seeking Balto. It was always again living in a border community. You learn really quickly that or you know. At least that the border is a lot more fluid than what people want to make it Because that's how we you know growing up in a border town how you live your life. You're always weaving in and out language Culture Food Flavors. Balkan totally and one thing that I see that is it's beautiful I love it. Is that even though? You're third generation. You're still letting you're still proud of your culture in. I think we begin. Give that back to your parents and grandparents. They kept that in you because I've met a lot of people especially in Texas. Actually that they just went opposite direction because of all the hardship that their parents and grandparents went through soup could us your parents grandparents for instilling that culture and to keep you close to it. Yeah yeah all added that you know my two grandparents so one was a citizen in one with not and both of them though are were World War. Two veteran and the one who was yeah and one was in Japan and one was in Europe. So my mother's father my GRANDPA Korol. He actually obtained his citizenship because of his service in World War. Two you know. He was seventeen years old he was living in in quoted and he saw that they were signing young men up to go to war and he had a job in El Paso but lived in wanted like many people and he signed up and he wanted to protect the country that he felt gave him a lot. He met my grandmother who was a US citizen in with born and raised in El Paso met her at a party and wrote her throughout his entire time away. Furthermore and when he came back he married her in. He obtained citizenship. And I will say this. Is The true story. Anybody who's part of the family really knows this story but I think it's really it resonated with me especially now and and just in the time that we're in what he. She laminated his paper so that he could carry them with him at all Because even after his service than even after he became at that ascend I mean he probably couldn't count the years and the Times in which he was stopped and asked for his papers. My Mom clearly remembers the time she was probably in college where he asked where he could. Laminate something and when my mom Helped him do that to realize quickly? It was his papers so bad to me just really when you need a reason to believe in. Why the American dream as as much a part of our dream as let the nose first generation pregnant bird one hundred may be. I always think about that among other story. 'cause for me that was that that's a really powerful thing to be both proud and beautiful right and I think that that you know that hasn't changed for a lot of people. Oh my gosh so powerful quote you there because we live in this were proud of gooey are and because many people here have not explore their country they were brought young and so they especially we still have a lot of people living in the. Us times we live in living that fear and at the same time. Loving the place that you your end. It's it's a hard copy to exist

Deputy is actually kind of laws that mash would be on on the post <hes> for this episode on the website <hes> so another tech talk so raft. Did you see about this guy with this hover jet power jam and silver so from man yes so it so it is go up to the speed of one hundred and eighteen miles per hour but it can only carry enough euro for tim minutes at a time to fly route ten minutes at a time and he tried to cross the english channel but he made it so you make it so. We're going to try to do it again. He miscalculated you know his a refueling. Stop so but yes. It's a freshman man. He <hes> apparently <hes> already has the record for the longest hover flight <hes> which he said in two thousand sixteen but you know what when i say real hover board yeah back to the future. This is all gadget ship wrote <hes> yeah. I think i did sita's but okay home. They got they got an accident. That seem so here's the thing though how are you going to have dad and i have an accent sounded like a gopro room right dame. There has to be some hundred and eighteen miles per hour. That's in right there. I mean that's not an action shot but that's photoshop. Where's the action side. I got this yeah. Because how do you you like as as a human your body's not aerodynamically dangerous ending straight up doing a hundred and twenty miles an hour like i just i don't know the physics of that works well there. There are certain people that are like that though that can like their balance or whatever i'm not talking about the balanced silence. I'm just talking about like just the arrow dynamics of like just going f s exactly cut because you you don't have anything that's cutting through the win except for your entire torso. That's putting resistance. You know what i'm saying so so that's a lot of wind resistance that you're standing up against shot. I think i saw his holy shit okay so he's leaning forward moving. That's not a hovered. That's a jetpack goes back to the future to. I don't like shit. He's flying. He's hovering over things but now that's not like back. He's also the the topic that one of the top is that discussion that came out of this is due to call it a hover boards or or flyable. It'll say he's he's high. If you want to call it a floppy convert day. That's her right that that's her. That's not a do i look. I rang rinky frankie support him but it's a chick frankie he was. I think we've been saying we have we have yeah we we falsely assume. Do you think yeah that's a good fix. Yes very very good 'cause <hes> but yeah rome get one. Hell no i would die. Put on fly. I will give me one line. I won't get you going two hundred eighty some yeah i wouldn't do that. That's top speed. So what are you gonna do look to right. You'll being kids the kids go put them on your back. It'd be like that bro. No black box was to many fucking marble. I might let them have died and everything i hear is. Did you ever see the splattered it into the side of a bridge. Like what was that wind suit you know. Would it not any transformers transformers where they had does with israel that was you know i'm not laughing. I'm just saying indefinite like look. There's no breaks. Is you know what i'm saying like a way to stop. Yeah you just fall. How do you come down you. You just fall probably operated like elk. Can you get your ass on them. Down can offer realistic helicopter without propellers. I don't know how to make. I think that's how it goes up up. They they like. There's an air propelled thing at the bottom of it. It's not really so is in case. There's something like i guess knows planes that are able to kind of take off like like go yeah. They hover very high tech yeah those are very obvious and by the time they finish this year and roll it out to market. Get it'll be ready to go straight straight. I'm good it was lower to the ground. Maybe you can keep it right. You'll have to five the five feet wherever i won't fall and break my neck and this is flying number eight no but if you do forty five miles an hour at five feet high and you stumble or some shit. You're going to get hurt on saying i won't but i mean i'll be less hurt she now. I'm not saying i will still still do it at that. No i don't i don't even draw fans though right. You're not going to match the thing out. Let me i. I look at that what you spot. I'm not saying that i'm just saying like okay all right so we'll test it out like maybe five ten miles is by our something like that. Yeah sure but like i'm not i'm not going that fast so net thing now. You know what i wanna. Do it 'cause. How do i even catch myself because it's tied to. The dean. Come on man apparently was not gonna do anything oh yes for thirty forty fifty pairs. It's not gonna do nothing for house. You was no way you would do what she was doing on that has talk back because he knows he can't right now but when you put it in front of kenan getting his ass on ain't no way i'm not doing it and he won't even let you man as your friend. I wouldn't even let you get on that shoe. I like he gets your ass off the right right leg great late huey rahmael go ahead. Hey can recover from that shit down joe life yup right ain't never gonna be fixed all right how long we've been waiting for shit like this. Why wait no shame ole now japan now yeah you're right. If i was his age i probably would do some. You know what i'm saying. I'm saying i wouldn't even call dumb like i dumps it. When i was a kid we wound it all kind of dumps it that i wouldn't do today a day of course yeah now as a grown as man with responsibilities. I would not ever do any shit like that. I just think it's don't we we're at the point now where we can have that type shipments coming like <hes> so we took kendall to the urban air you where when we talked yesterday where we took him and it was urban air in there like this v._r. Thing they got this v._r. Thing miles try to play but he gets real so i had to get him off but they had like the tony starship with the holograms and shit like that that's on the way to like the fucking hologram displays. We're only on the corners of of this day man like all of this stuff. We've been seeing the star trek. Shit is like almost fucking summer v._r. Man this is like going out but right and being owns on our yard exactly what i'm saying. Is that the things that we grew up with that. We can only imagine what we've seen played out in cartoon form movie movie for him. <hes> is actually becoming a reality so for me to be able to actually put my hands on this technology and have it. I think it's extremely but at the same as modern flies hover board bro well they make they may one of those too yeah. They do a video tony out. It's actually pretty yeah. I think that's pretty oh no not unless it was floating over some real soft spoken over like grass like them ball pits i would do but how the how different is it than the reason why i said that's different is because it's not to outside of a skateboard so you just say well. You can get hurt on skateboards the same way you can get hurt on a hover board and this is what i'm saying. That's different what we just saw so. That's what i'm saying i i 'cause. I wouldn't even really own escape war. Today's time anyway bushmeat is when i was a kid and i definitely bust my ass now so i would still be reluctant. Get on a on a hover board the same way. I'm reluctant to get on escape on a skateboard four singles on board tony start so we're gonna. Let's do this talk. Tony hawk net tony start hover board that thing we frankie flobert work to help us differentiate now the differences if you see his hover board. It doesn't go that high so if he falls it just like rossa. You're is hurting yourself as far as like. You're on a skateboard. That's different than getting your dumb ass xactly on one of them shift that fly fucking forty five feet in the air right. That's that's all. I'm saying again and when you said hover thought that thing. I just thought it might <hes> yeah i i. I may try to but i would try the same way. I may try skateboard skateboard in today's. Tom hubbard because i think it would be. I used to skate so i kinda might still have that kind of balance a little bit. I know i don't i don't know i don't hail no anyway anyway. I think it's tight all right y'all here <hes> please don't do it. You know that'll the film it. You can make a movie out of it. We'll go viral. I bet you that yeah but you know if you did that. Sit that they have an ocean uh-huh so yeah it is an o._c. Is like the the water proposed. Look like that. I would do that. I would love to see i. I was just like that is this is this little water tank swam. I can go along too attached you <music> but it's still the same bless your arizona yeah but but it but it's over water like it'll you say it hurts less if you really truly want to do that. They already have something similar to that over water. I would do that so we're so like when it comes to roz at like six plants. I wish your limit. What type of roz do you guys. Go on. I'll get anything at a at a <music> at a museum in part because it's supposedly contained and i can and it can't fall or anything like that. People die every day. Do they die every day on joyce. He is her pop fairs if you did you see the slingshot thing i was on a that. Was that a real slingshot. Did she was on he'd be passing out on aw video. Yes we just get on something like that. It was impinging for tennessee and there was this part of one so they have a strip and they have a bunch of cars and shit like that. Is that the one that'd be passing out on you know so it is one that people pass. John and i don't know if that's the one on. I was wondering if that were to win. It seemed like they were shorter. Yeah short about didn't feel sure okay tapie. It was the same thing at the scene. People pass out on it. I don't think i would because i think the kid the kid definitely pass down this to me. Yeah yeah so yeah i wouldn't. I just for that very reason like i would just wouldn't because i'm saying hourly seen people pass out on it. I don't wanna i don't wanna do i wanna have fun. I don't wanna wanna fucking parents out passing out and it was a thrill. I pass out how how much the thrill is it. Then as you dude yourself around the rest of the day would do all in your pants. I wrote a slingshot but you might. That's the thing i haven't to this to this. I'm forty three and i haven't yet but you only voted once. I made shit. When i'm eighty something you might dow you might shit but he didn't tell us. He's beware younger. Would you rather have you seen it before now. So what so what is it so so it's like it's the slingshot whatever you can <hes> human slingshot. Each foster never seen that before. I i have a plan. I know what it is. Yeah i see people 'cause like you'd literally go there and come back down and people tur- yeah now hell no. I'm good so i've been dad so you know that's kind of. I guess i brought it up to say kind of difference so i'm willing to get stuff like that. It's only instagram. You guys go see it. How will we don't just say different. Saying is is my my risk. Factor is a little bit higher so i would definitely try flop flop war because because because of the technology aspect of it and i just it just seemed like it would be stream look look. What a be just sent over. Would you do if i had the right safety precautions in place. We gotta move on yeah. I just want him to see that. You're gonna see me team narino. Would i want to watch this. We gotta go on. We gotta move on <music> number fifty seven seconds. You know you're gonna watch it and that's going to be oh ass who already have it. You can actually go to right now. It's gonna be carrying record but if you look further they show him flow note like that that the epic fail is funny to begin but they show him actually about yeah yeah. I would do this off the water joint. I would do the water well. It's not as easy as as it may seem no of course not you have to control water like propelling you up next. This ain't that big of a deal. It looked like uh but you gotta see the videos where people actually like p._o._v. perspective. I know bish though but would you you would do that. I don't know maybe i didn't think it was the other ones that actually go real high and shit. That's what i'm saying and i've been on those. I would get on those two so so you you didn't get on that one. I don't know what you're talking about. You said the ones that go higher because the one you always seem like he went there and i so i don't have. I don't know what talking about to compare it. That's what i'm saying okay so it probably is one that go higher but i would get on it still. If i gotta get another one too you know so coat anyway you guys hear about the guy fired over to pop white guy cicis zero wa guy from the midwest who used to send out a to pot lyrics inspirational quotes he worked <hes> for the department of human services in iowa and <hes> he thinks that he was fired or forced to resign in june <hes> because a debuted prior he sent an email to more than four thousand the agency employees that include the inspirational quote from two parts and <hes> you know he's a big tom fan and he would <hes> <hes> regularly hold <hes> to friday's in his office where he will play the raptors music and he said <hes> he was a lawyer. He likes to break stereotypes about <hes> people who listen to rap. His name was <hes> jerry. Sullivan is what he looks like. He's the white white ah food like colonel like that little do with no legs. I was on <hes> king of the hill days they <hes> was it patent or something. I forget the name but he looks like the guy that had no green light jeb bush or somebody name. What what was the name what's his name does ask him to <hes> yeah man so he got fired for what exactly sending out to pot lyrics or inspirational quote. What was the lyrics to say. He was playing music though he did. He have to pop fridays. Yes and this article is from n._p._r. By the way <hes> it doesn't say what quote he sent down here. I got it right here this. The one piece is strictly from a negative boy so so you and i'll poses on on this ground but basically the email was like just let people know that we know sunday is father's day but that it was also to park's birthday and that he will be forty eight when he if he was still alive so he will be celebrating both days and that <hes> he hoped everybody else enjoy the day to take the time to enjoy his song and then he's put this inspirational quote in their pay. No mind to those who talk behind your back. It simply means that you are two steps it and.

"Trump. You can't really deny that. He is shifting things in a certain direction. The person that killed those innocent people in el paso very plainly said he was gunning for hispanics and i can't think that we saw much of this before trump and for the for the reason things that trump has said on twitter that were fucking racist shit how you guys want to spin it. What trump up was saying was fucking racist. I'd really like to know. How do you still support him. If you yourself claim to not be racist or how do you continue to support support. A president that is saying go back to your country or is clearly villain ising a certain type type of person that is now being murdered. Do you support that trump supporters that claim to not be racist like explain this to me and i'm not trying to attack anyone. I'm trying to understand. I'm really trying to understand how you can say. You're not racist that you support all people that america land of the free blah blah blah but you're supporting a president president that is making people not actions because you can say who's cou he really fine fine but you're still bill nizing a a certain type of person and you don't seem to care like how do you how do you wake up every day. I'm cool with that. I think and what i've seen anyways from you know a lot of like right wing extremist premiss and things like that is they try they like go through crazy ass loops to try to it's like mental gymnastics to try to <music> separate what they believe in because this is the thing and i think this applies to like all people who are racist are all people who are extremist as spars being on the right. I think think they think like i would personally feel bad. If i felt attached are connected to the evil quote unquote that's going on in this corner and so i'm going to try and take my ideologies and separate it as much as i can from what it is. They're doing over here so for example those people who did get shot or killed. They're probably going to be like oh. That's sad thoughts and prayers at the same time you know we should just try to come into the country legally and then like you can spew all these facts to them and say hey we'll. Oh this person was born here. Well i mean you couldn't tell really enemies at the same time. Yeah like don't work you gotta. You gotta do better than that. Yeah this point. People people are dying at this point. People are literally and it's literally like ordered. Yeah and y'all are not doing shit. Y'all still supporting this president. That's not doing shit. It's because it doesn't apply to them but he keeps on repeating the same talking rallies and everything yours you know and then he lies about it and it's just crazy easy to meet you. Still have people are like no. I'm not only non-racist. I'm anti-racists but i voted for trump because now you can't you see this man. That's cool man. I think some of those people actually don't care. I don't care nine. They shouldn't be in our country anyway i want. I want to hear from okay so i want to hear from the other ones. Does that say that they do care that they're not raised at the one that racism wrong. I want to hear from them. I how are you still saying that. You're gonna fucking vote for this guy again. In twenty twenty deep down they can say it all they want to but i think deep down share yeah the saints intimate as those people that are home like i don't care. They shouldn't be over here anyway. They just keep it needs more proves ryan. That's all i'm saying is super. I said yeah the manifesto that you know he he posted online. <hes> you know detailed a plan to separate rate americans <unk> territories by race <hes> spoke of hispanic invasion of texas a warrant that white people were being replaced by foreigners foreigners. The man drove ten hours to go to that walmart from allen texas <hes> to shoot <hes> you know and kill those people you know it real quick before you move on the invasion part y'all go to twitter and type in donald trump's twitter name and then put invasion next to it and see how many times himself talks about these quote unquote invasions and then once again explain how you support this motherfucker ryan yeah. They're currently on fox news talking about how video games and mental illness are the problems of course. That's gonna always be disbanded. Yep they way. I'll know of any video game that was <music> supporting like right typically targeting hispanics. Is there a game. I don't know about the closest. One is like grand theft auto. I would say but not not really she. You still targeting anybody and everybody saying like they can keep running this game but come on bro. I'm just sick of it. I'm sorry i just had to bring it up because that's fucking ridiculous. I mean we didn't even fucking touch on the two other. Shootings happened within a nine hour span. Did you see how the <hes> handcuff buddy and no paso. I feel as if we need to bring back crucifixion <unk> personally. I just feel like these mass. Shooters needs to be making made it an example of that's not gonna change anything like that's just like saying. Let's put him on <hes> electric chair because most of the time in the dying in a way we see it in front of a woman something it very nice very nicely king yeah yeah y'all man. That's the guy off friendly oh here. He shot ninety motherfuckers. You know all right. Thank choke hold on him. How many we're we're we're winning twenty twenty six so <hes> so shop shop for twenty years and this cook the numbers could change yeah but <hes> at least when we were so y'all not seen it also saw the video footage of him walking in with the with the earmuffs on and the actual <hes> rifle into the walmart cameras and the only thing i saw i was in a barbershop in i saw people like kind of running frantically whatever but as that that was it. That's all i needed to know. I it's crazy <hes> that you can't even go to a walmart or a movie theater or church search or any of these places that you just do normal stuff. You not let me go get some toilet paper today. 'cause i gotta shitty booty. You know say you're gonna august shot up like i'm just saying wow. I'm just saying hey prefers. I'm just saying there is just so crazy man <hes> that you literally like like the safest places your home fucking just order everything on amazon yeah i. I'm hey exactly you know what i'm saying a just like <hes> who i wanna say nifty said stay dangerous. My nigga look people own guns on a gun. Protect your home owner going to protect yourself because how or why g because this man like look you can't even go to walmart dog is crazy like we're just being targeted that <hes> it does not gonna help that. What i'm saying is is being able to protect yourself like i'm again years ago <hes> i. I've never owned a gun. Somebody tries a break in and i felt the most helpless vote and i was so happy that we had a gun in the home to protect us in the home but i'm saying that's a that's a that's another conservative talking point <hes>. They think that everyone should be armed and that'll fix everything. I know yeah yeah yeah yeah but that that's the statement that you made <hes> we'll twist that and of course course mike you owning a gun like one person walking into that walmart with a gun without do was shooting all those people <hes>. How do we know that that would have helped anything. What well here's the thing you you're one hundred percent right and i'm not saying that owning a firearm is the end all be all sure what i am saying. Is that if you are caught in that situation you much. Let's rather have that and then not have it. That's the only point. I'm trying to make however you decide to take that and run with it by all means. Take around with it but all i'm saying is is that you much rather have something to defend yourself the not to have it in that moment and i'm not saying that somebody had it that this. This person wanted shot the twenty people. You know what i'm saying. Maybe only shot to people. I don't know we don't know those are big variables. I just think that it's crazy that at this point that we're at it's almost like in how people say keys wallet phone. It's like keys while phone gun like that's crazy that that's what the new you just gonna put your gun or you'll keychain like just. It'd be like that's insane. That's just like the normal let me go out with this is just a weird bandai like you're not even discussing the actual problem well and that's that's my issue with the issue stems from you have a leader right now that is creating villains out of people litter and and everybody arming themselves in my opinion is just gonna make shit worse because then you have to make sure everybody is trained and yeah if you're in that situation who's to know what you're gonna gonna do right. You hear somebody popping off. You might say oh shit and you start popping up right. You're not trained. Could you imagine a walmart full of two hundred people just popping up every day like the wild wild west man confirmed actual issued. I agree with you one hundred 'cause i still need to get a gun from my house same but i'm not really with just i arm and my fucking walmart with the two lines they be having open. Oh yeah you just two baskets full. Hula gross rewrote. Yes nama fuck. You gotta have is live. Data is just updated. It was in the dayton bar shooting. There was ten people killed and twenty seven injured at the chicago one the dayton dayton and then i guess the chicago one may be seven people were injured but i don't know if there were any pronounced dead. Gotta do something y'all know if if if they do ran into walmart and they start shooting back. I don't know he might have talked taylor. Ran or the shooting back might have some other people or you're never mind it. Don't even matter which just move on well real quick. I want to highlight <hes> glynn oakley that went in and say says those kids he actually had a gun he had a gun permit and he was walking out and you know he happened to see the kids scared and crying and looking for their parents so he got his got started running through to to save the kids. I have a question wasn't that i'd like a an a mall which one the one that you're the first one no no. He said something about being a footlocker or something like that. Yeah the the one the walmart one was walmart shopping center so there was a footlocker. how the set up was. I just heard that there was one with like a mall military guy that was given the interview on television. He went to a foot locker so i don't know how that works either. I was like i don't know who is in i wasn't i don't think that's the same guy i think. This is the different person that kim's talk this. This is this is it was a fort bliss. Show soldier you know private first class glenn an oakley junior an automated logistical specialist assigned to the final four composites composites supply company stationed at fort bliss <hes> he was <hes> a customer at this yellow vista mall el paso when the gunman opened fire and so here's what he had to say about.

"Off. ready for the buck korea podcast and getting that <hes> so together there was was one gentleman i already know me. I do not remember that gentleman's name however him and his cousin were detained in texas around the border and and <hes> this gentleman was born in america american citizen had his driver's license social security card and his birth certificate one here and he they were driving and artifically because he was an american that that doesn't speak really good english he is of mexican descent but born here and <hes> one one of the border patrols they they stopped him and his cousin and a couple of other people didn't have papers but he did. They had him detained over ninety days. I'm and he lost over thirty five pounds lobbying in there because you know he the dude was saying that there were people that were sick in there. They don't let us the restroom. They barely feed you. People like like you really don't even have a place to sleep <hes> so he was saying he was seriously inhumane and the like you know everything. You're talking about despair bear. Like what do we do like br. I had all my documentation on me just because i don't speak english does not make me an american. I have proved and i think that that's the point that it's getting to where you can clearly see the <hes> the point that they're trying to make you know it's kinda like they set up all these barriers ears and it's very clear that they don't give a shit if about immigration really it's kinda like 'cause if that was the case then why do swedish. Do you know what i'm saying like. Nobody's checking swedish papers like that. Nobody's detaining people like of that so it's kinda like it's very obvious that it goes beyond <hes> you know just immigration status and i i know a lot of people who have been been detained with you know being american and everything so it's very clear that they don't give a fuck and they're just trying to. I mean i don't know it. Just i don't know i you can clearly see where it's going. You know what i'm saying like and the further it gets like black. People are not too far behind from that shit. You know what i'm saying like. I dunno found the list. <hes> i'll give you a couple of names. We'll need to move on <hes>. There's the nichols house. There's a networks coop. There's the i._r._c. Which is the place. I took my stuff to and the lady at the desk was like yeah. We need everything you can get. <hes> who was that an actual detention center or was it replaces that will help <hes> not only <hes> imigrants quote unquote. They also help refugees that are here okay <hes> so they help they pretty much across the board but no these are not detention centers. I don't think we we have any detention centers in atlanta okay. I was just about to ask that <hes> then there's also <hes> where's the one that don sent <hes> shop the clarkston okay so yeah you can. You can google these places but that's just a short list of water. Close can call it just yeah. They'll say on their a website what they're looking for specifically now but you can call them and just say hey. I wanna help. What can i bring yeah. They'll tell you yeah 'cause. I don't know and the last thing that i have to say about it. I know that this is. I don't know this might be kinda wack and marginal ruin it for for anyone if you haven't seen it yet but i know that you know the new season of orange is the new black air.

"I'm sorry go ahead. No is simply this. I think el paso has shattered the debate that we've had for two years as well as the myth that donald trump may not be a racist white nationalist i think at this point that's been pretty cleared up aw and marie to that point when donald trump makes this trip today to el paso if he was ever going to make any kind kind of effort to make people think that he was not a white racist and did not actively hate the both the region that he was visiting and the people who live there this was the day to make that clear he didn't didn't even attempt a word in that direction lauren's because the people here you know people are not stupid a we have heard since july twenty fifteen this man saying this. It's about us. I mean here. I'm not speaking as a journalist. I'm speaking as a mexican woman as an immigrant he he's attacked us over and over again. People here are not done they. It's not going to change because he suddenly rise and says you know i'm sorry as i said earlier. Actually the words that people are using here. Are that stuff orlando. He's he's kind of making fun of the situation by coming here because they know that he doesn't like the people from here. Otherwise would have made this a target. The other thing that people are same lawrence is there was a massive ice rate in mississippi today and the people here are saying thank you for throwing more salt on the wound it is he's not lost on them that this was an attack specifically towards nothi knows mexicans may he knows immigrants and that today the federal government went after those same exact people tearing parents away from their children who won't have parents tonight in mississippi and the other thing just to end is that people here are making these connections so they're saying we the people who are in mexico who are trying to get here who are now forced to sleep on the streets in mexico because of the policies of this president who doesn't want refugees is connected to babies being put into cages is connected to toddlers dying. Immigrant detention is connected to the border walls. Being placed. Here is connected to what just happened here. They're making this be a three sixty and they're saying we're putting these dots together and just horror. It's an absolute horror but it is not lost on them and may may this man forty five understand that the people here know exactly what's going on. They know exactly what's going on no matter what anyone says they know it and they feel it and look what i saw right here in their hearts virtue parker and maria hinojosa oh so thank you both very much for joining us on this important. I really appreciate it thank you when we come back joe biden an cory booker rose to the occasion today in a way that donald trump never could and never will joe biden was an iowa today where he was scheduled to give a speech about agricultural cultural policy. He didn't give that speech instead. He delivered a moral indictment against donald trump the words the president matters they can move markets. They can send our brave women and men to war. They can bring peace. They can come a nation in turmoil they could console confronted and comfort. Those who face as tragedy making spire lunatic reach the move they can encourage us to appeal to our better angels strive better nature but they can also lease the deepest darkest forces in this nation. That's what i believe down. Trump is chosen listen to do and one paragraph. Joe biden covered years of offenses by donald trump when trump announced. He was running running for president. He called mexicans rapist days before the midterm he fomented fears of a caravan arben united states more recently. He called american a major american center city. A disgusting rat infected rodent mess. No human being he said would choose to live as though the vibrant diverse community around in baltimore somehow was less than human at a rally in florida when asked the crowd..
"el paso" Discussed on Latino Rebels Radio
"It is sunday august fourth two thousand nineteen. We didn't start with a theme song today because <hes> it's tragic weekend. The date mass shootings the el paso domestic terrorist attack half left so many dead and injured the paso attack is a direct attack gone the borderlands on the community at the u._s. Mexico border on the mexican american community mexican community on the entire u._s. Latino community and i just wanted to give a call to one of my friends just because it's such a special city so i actually reached out to mario kart of america's voice. He's the texas state director actor he's based in austin but he is from el paso and i just gave mario call on sunday afternoon and here's what we talked about. Hey mario is um. Thank you so much for <hes> for taking this call. I'm really happy you're you're on with us. Yeah no thank you for having me. I appreciate it so so you know like i said i have a lot of topsoil friends and i've been so many times and you know in the last twenty four hours. I've seen my twitter feed i you and <hes> gus compared us and <hes> land so who had known and others. I apostles and i just felt like for today. I wanted to talk to someone who was from there and and witnessing at from i know you're in austin and envying and trying to get to like what's going on in the last twenty four to thirty six hours in your mind as you're watching this so first of all sir. How are you feeling yeah. I mean i feel like it's a little hard to answer that definitely still reeling <hes> from what happened yesterday yesterday in my hometown i think initially when the day began a sort of getting texts from friends we have a group text thread among myself myself and some friends from high school. That's how we kind of. Keep touch with each other. Some of them still live in el. Paso others don't have their parents or other family. Members still live in el paso and we kind eh just getting word through social media what was happening and i think for for us immediately. Obviously we think about our parents. We think about our family members and loved ones. I think for us. That's what made this this particular shooting <hes> so different from other that we've seen in this country. Is that it literally hitting so close to home so i mean he allegiance on the phone. <hes> got a hold of my dad and my sister. My mom actually was at one of the hostels that was taking in <hes> the shooting victims victims. She was there visiting visiting my answer sister. <hes> who's looking at the hospital and as shooting broke out <hes> the doctors were there to tell my mom mom she didn't leave then she would have to stay because they're about to go on lockdown <hes> though she just she decided to leave <hes> and this dell the hospital. That was only a couple of blocks awesome. What shooting will stay in place and i mean at that point when my sister told me where my mom was. I was pretty frantic. 'cause she wasn't answering her phone at that point it yeah she she ended up calling calling oh you mean letting me know that she was heading home and she was safe. So i think for me initially think sure that everyone in my life what's safe and protected and those of my friends as well which is what made this shooting unique initially yeah so i mean you don't know what i mean so basically everyone in your inner circle or the people that you kinda roll with everyone's fine like i mean i asked you that sort of semi or you know everyone is finding immediate family in the immediate family strengths for sure yeah and do you know of any i mean obviously i mean pass a big city. I mean i'm not trying to do you know what but you know of any of the stories the people that <hes> in following the coverage or things that you when you skip at the mall or you know when you start thinking about home i mean eh you know what i'm saying like. What do you think about that. Is that when you start. Hearing people going to places are even there at the mall and people shopping like what have you heard. I mean i think for me when when i initially found out that my immediate family and friends were stays immediately think about those who were caught there at that moment and the amount of fear you know it's just something that we cannot comprehend unfortunately it that it continues happening in our country and i mean it's a walmart right that i it it many times in my life and show them this the mall which <hes> was further location shooting is a mall i've been to i can't even count hundreds talk to my life. It's it's beaming el. Paso it's the closest to my high school so i went to east high school and on most fridays back i i was still in high school. We we take our cars and go to the mall and go to the food court so it's all that even now when i go back home you know i still visit with my life so <hes> when when you see the locations and you're like oh my god i've been there like my mom usually in there so it does definitely take on a different dynamic when it's places that are so familiar to you so yeah for sure i mean i i don't know the names of any of the victims of now yeah obviously their the families are very much in my thoughts and my carriers and it's such a tragedy that this happened. You know and i feel like now that we've we've gone beyond distance sharing that family and friends are safe. We obviously started looking into light at this happen. You know like the city has been as many of us who are from there we we. He likes to note that it's one of the safest cities in the country and it's never really experienced anything like what happened yesterday and it's unfortunate that we're hearing about the motives <hes> still waiting on them to be concerned but it does seem like that manifesto that we've seen on social media did come from the shooter. Yeah let me just because yes i think before we get to that i think the short and also because the work that you do and you know the work that i cover as a reporter and coming up of issues. I think it's a very important thing but before we go there because i i mean you think it's something that needs to get discussed chopped me about el paso a- community as a fabric i mean i've been there a handful of times and and that's you know over the course of the nineties when i was twenty something to when i'm kinda like fifty something and i've always felt to be the special place that yeah just it's just so the unique of a place that unless you're there you don't realize how special place it is and and you talk talk about. It and it's not just about as being a safe city. There's just sort of this awareness of like this is like we are in place of the world where uh we live and i'm from petty. People say that he can use like a like a way of life yeah okay like a badge of two hundred two hundred yeah something like talking about the community every time in every one i've met. I've never met a bat. I've never met a angry althouse. I'm sorry guys they're sisters love. There's this genuine at. It's a genuine respect a love you feel it you feel it when you're there yeah. No you absolutely so tell me why is that you know why is that wide-scale possible so special in that sense yeah no certainly so i mean my family and i about gotcha lapasset hi so we migrated from chihuahua and i was five years old and it was the first it was my introduction to america was literally the first place that i went chew in the united states and i always joke my parents as they cross the border and they get set up. We're working here. We'll stop here. We we we on us. We allies yeah yeah. No we really have right like it's a wonderful place and for me. It's it's a it's a big town. That does have a small town feeling to wait. You know a lot of people. A lot of the high schools are really punched folks together so you end up having friends from different parts of terrorism and a lot of places that we go coach. You are generally the same places but it'd be the u._s. Or aunts or it's really beautiful community right and after the fact that you have to claudius right across the border order and it's been such a part of my life <hes> even when i was a child my dad had a business and see that's what is for more than twenty years so for me. <hes> yeah not <hes> going between el paso was just a normal way of life right. It's not something that really was unique at that moment. I don't think you understand how you living on the border is and you tell people that you live on the border or you go away from the border and you live somewhere else and then you think about it like oh yeah i could be in another country and just a couple of minutes is it is it is pretty wild in that sense if it's such a close knit community really is a welcoming community i mean i think we can attest to that. I just how welcoming being the city has been to asylum seekers from the world over <hes> the the reception that folks from other countries receive passover giving me such a great sense of pride right and growing up there you know i'm sorry i'm thinking oh yeah yeah yeah. I know it was a really tough to see that because you grew up there and then you just that's that's the place that was on that was the place that you know allowed me to become the person that i am now and that's that's why i really hurt <hes> what happened yesterday but you know i also know that it's a resilient city. It's everything when you include it which i love life and it's gone through so much over the last eight in terms of violence and you know and we can't we can't separate ourselves from that either so it's a part of one big community that i feel <hes> we'll we'll bounce back better than ever after yesterday's tradit- rather yeah and and you mentioned sort of you know the recent events in the last year with the you know with the <hes> the more the attention to these chris people coming <hes> my understanding and talking to people from from congresswoman that sco par to volunteers cheers to residents is that it's always been welcoming and it's always been a city that is aware of the situation. I think that's why i think when you grow up on the border you have an awareness that goes beyond sort of <hes> i would say like limited knowledge in the united states..

"Allow all the news media to cover his visits in dayton el paso instead you will hear from people who spoke about these events today and who very clearly care about what happened in dayton eight and el paso and have proved that they care and are very worried about where the next mass murderer is going to happen. He will hear from joe biden later in this hour delivering a speech in iowa today in which he condemned donald trump's hatred and racism in the strongest terms we have yet heard from joe biden he linked donald trump's uh-huh language to the massacre in el paso you will hear from senator cory booker later in this hour in a speech that he delivered today in the church in charleston south carolina which was itself the scene of racist mass murderer. You will hear both joe biden an cory booker speak not so much as presidential candidates because they barely referred into their candidacies at all but as moralists appealing to the conscience of most americans who have always rejected everything about donald trump and trumpism and the racism that was the founding principal of trumpism the trump lie about president obama's birth certificate. That's how trump ism was born. In the muck of that racism you will hear from people in el paso who have been and devastated by what has come to their hometown but you will not be hearing the voice of donald trump because donald trump is unable to deliver a single sentence that is in any way appropriate to what happened in dayton in el paso he did not say one serious or true thing today. That is is worth reporting here tonight. Just before donald trump landed in el paso today spoke to an audience in his hometown about the heroes in paso who went to work trying to save the lives of people shot by a mass murderer who believes every word donald trump has told him about mexican americans and about people people who someday hoped to become mexican americans people who hope to enter our country episode and border better o'rourke talked about el paso heroes who rushed i into action after a mass murderer who thinks exactly like donald trump drove hundreds of miles to come to el paso to kill as many people as has he could we had a chance to think the doctors and the surgeons and the nurses and the cleaning staff the nurses has told us as they wield these victims into the trauma bay blood everywhere they'd wheel one patient out cleaning staff would come in like a nascar this car pit crew and clean that bay down so it was clean for the next patient to come in so they could save somebody else's life every single one of them in that hospital and they did the same thing at university medical center doing all that they could for their fellow l. passan's for their fellow. What ends is for their fellow a human beings and they save their lives and one of those surgeons dr smith said this is one of those moments that either destroys your faith in humanity or restores your faith in humanity. El paso chooses to restore our our faith in humanity in one another and in this country the doctors and the nurses of course. We'll never be thanked enough but that's not why they do it. They do it because of a duty that comes from the heart a duty that donald trump could never understand carson veronica escobar who is better or work successor in the house of representatives refused to join the president of the united states on his visit to her city of el paso today because he has not apologized for the things he's he has said about the twenty two people who were murdered in the twenty six people who were wounded in el paso and no donald trump has never talked about those people individually before they were murdered and he has never talked about them individually since they were murdered but they are precisely the people who donald trump has been talking about relentlessly in his rants about the southern border. We will have a lot of work to do do that is not just about repairing the body but also about repairing the mind and the soul and we have to be strong and united knighted in that journey that very difficult journey that lies ahead.

Jim and i have to say started the week after the shootings in el paso in taking both angry and sad about the state of the country but it's it's inspiring to see at least how the people of el paso a city which has a low crime rate and his eighty percent hispanic right by the border order with mexico how they held rallies after the walmart shooting calling for love and not more fear and hatred at the times of crisis like this. It is easy to think that things are always getting worse that we're in some kind of downward spiral and i think one role that we play on this show is is to try to step back and look at the bigger picture.

"So one thing american mass murderers have in common is that they are the very best equipped mass asked murderers in the world. They can thank republicans for making sure that the best tools of mass murder are still legally available available to them and just like the mass murderer at a pittsburgh synagogue before him the mass murderer in el paso agrees with donald trump trump that there is an invasion at our southern border. It's an invasion of our country. We have an invasion of drugs invasion of gangs invasion of people. I don't care what the media says. That's an invasion of our country. We have right now an invasion if you look at what's going on with the caravans caravan's it's an invasion stop. This onslaught this invasion into our country jeff. People hate the word invasion but that's what it is the new york times reports. It's that since january. Mr trump's reelection campaign has posted more than two thousand ads on facebook that include the word invasion part of a barrage of advertising focused on immigration according to data obtained tamed by the new york times the trump campaign had one of its biggest expenditures on facebook ads about immigration last week just before the el paso massacre and surely the el paso mass murderer noticed when one or more trump supporters at a trump rally in florida yelled the solution to the invasion was to quote shoot them them. The president clearly heard his devoted supporters. Yell shoot them and the president smiled. The president didn't say don't shoot them the president welcome to the comment everything about the president's reaction to one of his voters saying shoot them indicated that the president approved of the idea the president is it actually offered his audience these strategic advice to not try to get away with saying shoot them unless they're in a place like the florida panhandle. The presence exact words were that's only in the panhandle. You can get away with that statement now. I'm not going to show you that video tonight night. Because in this morning period it is just too profoundly ugly and hateful to watch and i'm sure most of you remember it. I am very sure that the the el paso mass murderer remembers exactly what the president said about shooting them january discussion now is leeann alien castro democratic presidential candidate he was secretary of housing and urban development in the obama administration after serving as mayor of san antonio texas circuitry castro your reaction to what has happened in el paso and ohio sad for our country and <hes> said that the leader of our country is stoking the hatred and bigotry in the division that is prompting people like that shooter to go and specifically search out latinos to kill this. This is the climate that we find ourselves in in twenty nine thousand nine hundred and you know what else can you say. It's that sad and all of us should be said we should also be infuriated originated as i know a lot of people are and now what we need to do as a country is to figure out a way to channel that anger into something that will change things in our country commonsense gun safety legislation. I was glad to see the folks in ohio chant back and interrupt <hes> there governor telling him to do something. It's also time for congress actually do something and then also we need to give the tools is to the department of justice that they need so that they can root out this domestic terrorism whether it's white supremacist terrorism or other types of domestic terrorism because as as you know the trump administration actually took money away from the agency that does that and maybe most importantly. I think the best way to channel this anger..

What the fuck hold on a second you know i i it's it's these <hes> it's these questions that you know the answers to connect the dots about what he's been doing in this country <hes> he's not tolerating racism. He's promoting racism. He's not tolerating violence. He's inciting racism and violence in this country so <hes> you know i just i. I don't know what kind of question that is so i it's important to understand that the battle was coming from of vigil very emotional vigils to honor those who had been killing what you're hearing from bethel rourke the anguish in his voice of frustration astray shen you're hearing from el paso up from every walk of life when when you talk to veronica escobar the congresswoman from this region you you hear the same anguish and anger in in her voice when you talk to priests <hes> when you talk to hairdressers it really doesn't matter that debt anguish and anger is there because our community was targeted that that that anger but in a very dignified way that you hear from the leaders in el paso reflects the sentiment of the people the first reaction on on saturday morning of course what shock but that changed changed overnight. They think saturday into sunday morning when it became very evident. This wasn't just another mass shooting. This was somebody who targeted our community and people should be angry about that if you if you're not angry or if you don't understand the anger that's coming from el paso. I probably probably can't have a conversation with you. Our neighbors were murdered solely because of their heritage <hes> <hes> and and we've seen this as a community coming for two years. This is also a community to court understand that has been the focal point of the lot of the president's border policies family separation started here right now they'll pass wada's are the centerpiece of the administration's remain in mexico program where we're sending asylum-seekers back through very dangerous conditions in my community in march i saw people who were forced to sleep under a bridge simply because they had come to this country to seek asylum and our government couldn't to find a way to handle them. I have in the last couple of months written stories about the autopsy reports of four children who died <hes> <music> at in our government custody mile. All of this is a piece of the same thing. This shootings related all of that. You were talking about about how you know. This is official policy and official rhetoric. These these are all official policies. These are actions by our government in our names means that is inflicting tremendous misery and suffering here and we can have a conversation about immigration and about out border enforcement. We have to understand that these are human lives that that are being touched by this and i think that's what's gotten lost in so much of the rhetoric reckon why it's so easy time for a man who lives north of dallas right grab his a._k._47. And drive to el paso because they're not seen as human beings. Thanks and i think that's something that we just absolutely have to change. If we're going to put a stop to this <music> hey guys this.

"Most of the victims and the shooting were latinos. It's now a time of morning back to the soul. The spirit of our community that el paso activists says the fear is real but people are not just sad and concerned. They're also outraged. I'm marco werman also today. In turkey. Syrian refugees who fled violence and civil war are being sent back to their home country. Where did treating us like this. We don't understand this treatment is not humane at all and a big change for thailand. The government is getting into the medical. Marijuana business business is actually three types of pepper in her mixture putting pepper in the garden and so ty all the stories are much more today. You're on the world. I'm marco werman. This is the world world a man who shielded his wife and their nine year old granddaughter with his body. They were shopping at walmart school supplies. The fifteen year old boy he played <unk> soccer at school. A married couple parents of a two month old baby boy jordan and andre and sean do have your amir rodriguez david johnson. They are all among the twenty. Two people killed in the el paso shooting last weekend. Fernando garcia leads the border network for human rights in el paso. I think we are sorry now. Transition moment from morning are victims are families. I mean this has impacted the soul the spirit of our community community to now asking questions essentially why this happened and i think the answers to those questions are becoming more terrible terrible in even worse than the incident itself because we had a now the realization that this was a result of extreme hate rhetoric rhetoric in anti immigrant feelings and so people is not only sad but also they are outraged and upset. I mean obviously you've got to ask questions uh-huh but is it hard right now to do that to pivot especially after such a horrific tragedy it is hard. I mean i cannot say that he c- c- <hes> we all know somebody that either was there in where attacked or was injured or unfortunately died so i think these the difficult but at the same time we need to call it what it is what we are reflecting on is the intersection of tweedles guns and an white supremacy in whatever solution we had he has to actually deal with that immediately the past seventy two hours just just in terms of what the community there has needed. I mean what kinds of services and supports our people seeking out you know. There's been several community reactions in actions. <hes> wh whoa i mean obviously people is flooding the blood banks. People is a services some visuals but let me tell you one thing. I think it's important the day that saturday that afternoon when i was getting ready preparing for a press conference next day i was in my home in my fourteen year old came to me out of the blue in the midst of those things that i was doing. He looked at me very sad in. He told me that he was afraid. I mean this is a u._s. Citizen the least with a human rights organizer telling his father that he was afraid. What did you talk to him. I mean do you even feel i just i just couldn't say anything honestly have in embrace him and kissed him but i think my reflection at that moment right after this that if this is the case of my son i mean what is the case with many families especially immigrant down families nowadays a new level of fear that like the heat and they racist rhetoric also can kill people i mean there was a fear prior of immigration enforcement and now a fear of people with guns. Are you finding people who are actually changing their daily routines. You know that day the day the venue did they after the event will receive some calls in especially through social media people that was impacted by the shooting there dad walmart they will concern what the presence of border patrol near hospitals and clinics and they didn't want to go to us for help.

"el paso" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Everybody welcome to the charlie kirk show a little bit more of a somber episode given this weekend's developments in el paso and dayton dayton joined with mr producer. There's a lot of thoughts. We're gonna try to unpack them for you here. I guess we'll we'll begin by first. Just observing just how the coverage is of these horrible tragedies unfortunately in predictably the left has descended into describing these these two mass shootings into some essentially donald trump's fault. I mean we could have predicted that no matter if anything bad happens it's donald trump's felt anything good happens. We can credit to barack doc obama and again. It's so easy wanna politicize things. We're not gonna do that here russian and try to unpack some deeper observations and god god willing some takeaways and some things that we can do differently. I think we're gonna have some different takes and you might get somewhere else but additionally. I mean look so you could blame you could say well the paso shooter under used language similarly to president trump and the counterargument all of the dayton shooter said he would vote for elizabeth warren. He was a raging leftist on twitter okay so let ah again i. I actually love the camp that it really doesn't matter. I i do think these people are domestic terrorists. I don't understand why that's it's controversial to say. I mean they were trying to inflict terror. Amongst a large group of people i would pull i mean i'm totally pushing back and let let's just start. Let's just back up a second so love for the very few that don't know what happened over the weekend. Mass shooting in el paso texas followed quickly but mass shooting dayton ohio. I'm of the opinion and i'm i'm sure that evidence will show that the person dayton ohio is essentially a copycat of the personnel pasa texas the fact that they both happened within a couple of our window goes to show that the mass media coverage twenty four seven news cycle brings people out to go commit more horrible heinous acts. I can actually tell you right now. I don't know either these maniacs names and i'm glad i never want to know their names. I'm just going to refer to it and you won't hear their names on the show. You will not hear their names on this program so el paso in dayton. I really don't care what their names are. I know so far too many of these maniacs names from some of these other shootings and we're going to unpack that so let's let's breakdown. Actually what happened in el paso's a man armed with an assault rifle opened fire shopping. We don't use the word rifle. I it's a made up term so true story so whatever it was a form of an a._k._47. Eight forty seven but it was a semiautomatic rifle. The reason we don't use assault rifle is that it's a it's a made up term by the left so it was a semiautomatic rifle with a heavy be magazine chamber with the capacity to fire rapidly also overheat but it was not a fully automatic weapon yep so but anyway shopping area in el paso actually it was a it was a walmart which was next to the <hes> larger mall area <hes> the texas killing at least twenty people wounding twenty-six others according to officials authorities said on saturday. The suspect was arrested outside a walmart store in eight kilometers from the border checkpoint with mexico. <hes> police confirmed that the twenty one year old was from allen texas and he's the only person in custody so i read this maniacs manifesto. I highly highly encourage you not to read it just because i don't want more eyeballs be put on this psychopaths writings because there's no there's no takeaway whatsoever so i'm going to basically tell you the what was in it. He's a lot of heated and charged. Language seemed to be have a lot of apprehension in his own words of a takeover america and he thought the only way to <hes> rectify that was through violence. Don't ever try to find rationality in these manifestos because they're written by crazy people they're written by psychopaths so they they have strong on through totally related pieces of evidence that relate to their own anxiety and their own inner demons and then what happens is the external world on both sides but mostly the left mostly the leftist media will look at these manifestos l look this is confirmation bias that president trump is the worst person ever and again. We can do that right now when the dayton shooter later but we're not going to do that because it's not true. These people are mentally unhinged so first of all. I'm gonna say this. I i believe that a lot of these shootings shootings have not all of them are more times than not an indictment of our culture and that we have an isolation problem we have rapidly changing country with technology and and young men in particular are feeling. They're being put on the fringes. They've they're feeling highly isolated. However that does not make an excuse for their violence. I'm not going to try to it justify that oh wow because of the emasculation of the american male of something of which i believe is happening. I'm not going to try to create a framework of where this is understandable because this is not understandable so i'm not going to try to justify what they're doing but i will also say this that we've a horrible problem with medication and our country we push pills to children at a young age and some really compelling research and studies show that the rise of anti-depressants and and psychiatric type drugs having having a horrible impact on childhood development and lead to these kinds of outbursts and again. There's lots of studies that go to show that we don't have to dive into that too much but i i would. I would make the argument that there's far too many on. There's a huge problem with over medication and we see someone with any sort of issue that might be a little bit outside of the mainstream throw pills at them and so i can tell you my personal experience. I've always been hyperactive. I've always been someone that has a lot of energy. They tried to give me eighty eighty medication all throughout my childhood and thankfully my parents resisted it and thank my parents wanted nothing to do with that but if anyone is a little bit outside of the normal kind of energy like energy flow the immediately immediately try to throw drugs out and then you drugs to fix what's wrong with the drugs you need more drugs to fix the side effects of those drugs and you kind of goes into this endless downward spiral from from what we understand. The shooter similar to other shooters in the past is they feel highly disaffected. They live on the fringes of society. They spent a ton of time on the internet even admitted did that. He spent ten or twelve hours a day on the internet which goes to show that that's not gonna make you happier. It's not going to be more fulfillment out and take a hike. Guy's gonna walk in the park. I mean but you know every time there's these shootings i just try to tweet bible verses because i believe we're in a spiritual war right now in our country and i mean as a christian i believe jesus is the answer in that. The bible always answers. I love that you bring that up because i think you know there's a there's a con- conflicting that happens here <hes> with white it christian males are the problem in america right now will actually an act like this couldn't be further from what christianity actually stands for it couldn't be further from from goss- won't actually a lot of them tend to get really deep into the white nationalist movement of the white supremacy movement a lot of them. It's a stick they reject christianity indies very realistic main reasons mostly because christianity teaches teaches that verse glaciers through twenty eight there is neither june or gentile neither slave nor free male and female for you are all one in christ jesus i mean this is completely antithetical to their message which has no one is better than the other so it. It can be further from again. We should try if we spend too much time. Just trying to hyper observed these people had a chemical imbalance and it's also a byproduct a product of a societal societal carnage that has happened to our electoral carnage yeah and nevertheless that's what's going to happen in the mainstream media. It's going to be inflation inflation. Let let these people who aren't actually experts tried to inflate some big narrative so the the left always operates like this they have something bad happen okay so for example they find and a couple children that are mistreated on the southern border and they try to connect that to president trump as if president trump demon edict that people in southern border are being mistreated anything wrong that happens happens to try to fit into preexisting narratives that exists so one of the narratives that they've created about this president well. Let's go through some big mayor's that they've created out the president okay. The president is unhinged. That's one of their narratives correct so anytime that president trump might do something asymmetrical or might say something surprising. They say he's unhinged. Are the president is only serving a self interest. I so anytime the president you know dares. Take a day to go golfing with somebody important. They said he's only serving his self interest or they have another one where they say. The president is portraying his base right. We're so whenever you know. China might reciprocate with more tariffs because he's trying to have better trade deals. Put it kind of in that mary the other one the big narrative they've been trying to create for years is that president trump is harming civil society and president trump is creating a group of followers that will further further divide our country and create horrible acts essentially and they tried to create this narrative unsuccessfully in the covington example. Just remember the comington. That was the image they wanted. They wanted the image that president trump is so horrible and he's doing so much damage that even young people are now going after indigenous people mocking when actually ended up backfiring it wasn't the truth whatsoever <hes> and so you see on twitter <unk> trending on twitter hashtag trump terrorists again the person in dayton was not support of the president. He was not a supporter of conservative values. He was enlisted warren support but again. That's not why he did that. We're not going to use hush. Check wards terrorists that are progressive eras. That's not who we are or what we're going to argue for so the first thing i question the icon wanna poses i mean how many mass shootings do you think jordan peterson is. No prevented. I mean jordan. Peterson is a hero western civilization well this this this was an a discussion that we were having before <hes> during show prep talking about <hes> disaffected youth disaffected young men a lot of these shooters tend to be it really really young twenties early twenties late teens mid twenties and it's at that perfect time in their in their development where they're they're looking for mentors. They're looking for direction looking for identity and that is probably if you look at the videos on youtube something like that. After jordan peterson speaks you get a lot of these young men in coming up to him praising him giving him all this and it's well deserved praise jordan.

"We're talking this hour about the latest on the compromise deal reached in congress regarding funding for border security on the southern border will also gonna talk about the reality on the ground in El Paso, Texas as well. I'm joined today by Lisa Desjardins. She's correspondent for the PBS news hour, and who argue are he's in El Paso, Texas. He's immigration and border security reporter for the Texas Tribune. And let's listen to a little bit more of what the president had to say during his campaign rally in El Paso last night. He said that there's one place where a physical barrier would have an impact right here and L Paso. I've been watching when they've been trying to say, oh, the wall didn't make that much. Well, you take a look at what they did with their past crimes, and how they made them from very serious much lesser, you take a look at what the real system is. I spoke to people that have been here. A long time. They said when that wall went up, it's a whole different ballgame is that a correct statement whole different goal at a competing rally last night. Former congressman and Democratic Senate nominee and El Paso native better aerobic address. President Trump's claims about the level of violence in L Paso. One of the safest in the United States of America for twenty years and counting safe long before a wall was built here in two thousand and eight in fact, a little less safe after that wall was built Aurora class night who inaugural limited turn back to you quickly. So I mean, you talked about what the president said..

"But it is not so simple and El Paso residents. Find themselves having to constantly refute. The claim Monaco Ortiz rebe as a journalist in El Paso and a native of the city. She's lived the story as well. As reported on it. It depends where in El Paso where you visit. There is a neighborhood that butts up. Right along the US Mexico border in El Paso that neighborhood is called she. Well, we thought it's one of the oldest in the city and people there say that the border wall has helped make their neighborhoods safer before the wall was constructed. People could easily run across the dry bed of the Rio Grande into the neighborhood and cross back into Mexico. The residents who live there said that there was a problem with with burglaries sometimes assaults. Their laundry would get stolen off the line or a bike would go missing. And there were gangs in Mexico that sometimes crossed over and this is documented by police. So the wall has proven to be effective in highly urban concentrated areas, but where it loses effectiveness is in more rule and less populated areas before the wall Monica what was the reality about crime in Paso like in the urban part of El Paso well. Well, I mean studies have shown that immigrant communities tend to be safer.
