The detective was fired on June nineteenth by Springfield Police Commissioner Cheryl Clap route. The former detective joins us now from Springfield flonaise. Welcome to Radio Boston. Thank you. Can you bribery? So flourish, so your story was first reported by mass. Live in Springfield Republican reporter Stephanie Berry, I wonder. Can you walk us through what happened beginning with? What was the picture? And why did you post it? Yes on the. Post and was a photo of my niece and her friend protesting the killing of toward floyd on the protests took place in Atlanta Georgia. On my niece and her friend, holding signs one of the signs read. Who Do you call when the murderer? Where's badge and the sign that my niece was holding? said shoot the F. Back. Okay. That content could be considered threatening. You acknowledge that the posting could be considered hurtful or threatening to fellow officers. Did you think about that when you posted it? I mean it could be construed as threatening to you as a police detective is well. I didn't take the polls. Have be an anti COP You know when I. When I shared the Post I, Think about how others would perceive it, at no point that I share that post with malicious intent just so you know supporting my niece and her right to a practice her first amendment. So then what happened floor? So you posted it? What did you hear from Your Department from other officers? What happened next? So after share in the post a few hours later, I received messages on on social media. Phone calls text messages. From some of my officers who express their concerns They said that they don't look good that it looked like an anti Kat post once I realized that I had offended some of my fellow officers I immediately deleted the post and I apologize to those who had reached out to me, and I also think them for you know looking out for me. I. Know that right now. At that time, emotions were very high, or all the officers with everything that was going on, not protest that was happening throughout the country. the following day I received a phone call from direct captain before he could explain himself I explained that I why he's calling me but at no point did I share that pulse with malicious intent or Ernie intent to harm or fund any of my fellow officers but the captain stated that the Commissioner was highly upset. She was embarrassed and then I did express the him that I understand How she you know. She could be embarrassed in offended especially after she honored hardship for me, the Commissioner has done a lot for me. All my career my one year career in the in the department. Excuse me. On the day after the phone call with the captain, I met with the Commissioner Commissioner Clap. there was a few deputies in the office as well a few captains, and I went in with my us union present Joe Gentile. in the meeting the Commissioner. basically told me that you know I embarrassed her and that she was highly upset with me. Especially after honoring to hardship, I apologize to her and I and I told her that I understand where my fellow officers are coming from, but at no time did I post that with militias and another time? did I think that might be as anti cop. I told her that I. You know I. Should apologize to all the officers. I'm sorry till the up to supervisors who advocates for me? I think that they deserve an apology from embarrassing and she went on to tell me that people had called up to the. Commissioner's Office and And when I see people I, mean my officers and they were upset and they wanted me terminated She did say that she thinks very highly of me in the. She didn't want to terminate me and then you'd have to figure out a way to fix this. after I left that meeting I consulted with my union president Joe Gentile. after control than what time we both agree that it'd be a good idea to go on a local high bdo. IBP Oh page. And, put up. The public apology to my fellow officers I put up the apology later that day and once I put up the apology I had a few officers that you know basically told me it's okay. No where he's. We all make mistakes. you know we. We have to stick together. Then received a lot of insults and threats on there as well. I'm sorry to interrupt you I know there's a little more to this story, and I do want to give you a chance to tell it, but I need to clarify a couple of things that you've already said. You said that the commissioner said to fix it in the mass live reporting today. She denied that she had said fix. It had a quote that said quote. Once you post something. It's out there and you can't retract it. That post was hurtful to many of her co-workers. What do you make of the dispute between your sense that she told you to fix it and her saying, but that is not what she said. I'm when I was in that meeting. I recall those words like he needs to figure out fix this. and I remember being. Sorry go ahead. No no, that's okay. Finish your thought, please. I'm I'm commenting on that? Okay, also, you said that the commissioner honored hardship for you. Some of our listeners may not know what that means. Can I please ask you to explain that? I'm so dern. The pandemic the kits for being home schooled and I. also have my father who has cancer that I for so i. Put it in a re. I spoke with my captain I was on the midnight shift. I was working twelve eighty a And I wrote up a hardship after consulting with the CAP, and he told me to put in a hardship I wrote to the Commissioner asking to go back to four to twelve as a patrol officer. And in order for me to homeschool my three children and look after my father. a few days later. She authored my hardship while I'm and. Threw me in the TV as a FDU detective. So made you a detective? Yes, Ma'am! Okay thank you now after you posted the apology, you got mixed results or responses from that my apology, my understanding was ultimately you withdrew the apology. You then later were part of a larger picture that was taken of the force, and then on that same day. Receive News that you could either resign or be fired. Do I have those events correct? Yeah! And so the firing was about a week and a half ago. Yeah, it was on Friday to nine hundred. And did it come as a surprise to you on that day? Yes, it did after spoke with Some of the supervisors in the department. They had basically told me you know lay low. Just try to blend in you know, take this as a small bumping your career and a lesson learned and You know you'll get through this. Why do you think you were fired? At this point. You know I I am I don't know. Like the Commissioner as the Commissioner stated She was pressured by the mayor I think it was It was driven my politics but that's as far as I can comment on that. Were there discussions within the police force during the the weeks of the protests prior to you posting your Social Media Post. About the protests, the movements the discussions about police brutality. Were you talking with with fellow detectives or other officers about that? Did you have a sense of where they stood into? They have a sense of where you stood. I'm no. We didn't talk much about it I. Mean I had one one officer life spoke with that was very closely with in regards to the protest and I think we both stood in support of the black lives. Matter Movement. And other than that I. didn't I didn't really? Have conversations about the protests with other fellow officers. And after you posted your apology, why do you believe that some officers came back? with strong responses threatening language. I think is the term that you used it, Cetera. Why do you believe the apology was not sufficient to kind of to begin to heal the controversy around your post? I believe emotions are just very high at this time. You know like I can't tell you why they felt offended. again I had some even had some that some officers at attack me. Flirt so, we reached out to the Springfield police to either appear on the show or to provide comment commissioner share a clap route sent us a statement, said quote. This was Miss Fuentes a second infraction during her probationary period complaints about her social media posts came from co workers who were hurt by it, and questioned her stance on the quote that advocated shooting police officers. It was my decision to terminate her employment and quote. What does she mean by a second infraction?

Some of the highlights include Sayers. Health struggles and becoming a natural health advocate Mike Ernie's in foods, and how they impact our genes, the Apple Mono Diet, Y raw foods are important to eat at every meal and falling in love with his wife Kelly, and how this was his medicine.

If you could help, spread the word shared the show with somebody in your life, and without further ado here we go with Sayer G. Hello Sayer welcome to the PODCAST. Yeah really say to have you on the show. This has been a long time coming. And I really loved your new book regenerate, and in there you share your story, which wasn't familiar beforehand, and and it goes all the way back to childhood, and the sickness that you went through as a kid and a teenager, and you share a whole bunch in there that you went through such as money having your tonsils removed, and you ended up having hip surgery later on, and it goes on and on overweight unfit. You ended up I think it was about at age seventeen. You had surgery on your sinuses, so you went through quite a bit. And my question for you is what was the catalyst behind all that well yeah I think for me. Getting into natural advocacy was allies were destined sesame given. Experience by. Acute episodes the Bronco Asthma you know. They checked me up enough in US multi fight lungs working. So from very early on I just. I struggled allies, and then came later in my life to ernest on nutrition, exercise and mind body practices so ultimately. That was guest that I felt so much because than it needed a passions. WanNa share you know the alternatives. Natural Approaches that I know can in some cases provide so much humor well. Let's talk about that. Turning point and I know this took place in your first year in college so. I become exposed to alternative health ideas. Well, you know my sister was someone who is naturally inclined to health food stores for example, I was way more conventional member over time I started to. Like the of that way than starts looking to literature that you'd find in these helped stores and taking on raw shrewd in the mucus diets, as it was known by Arnold era and a member thinking well. I've never not eaten. Save Council products. What would happen if I ate raw? And within three days of just going ahead and eliminating house, my asthma went away and never came back. It wasn't so raw. Fruit is, but the BUFFY Diet says exclude common engaged delicious. Western foods such as cow smoke novas like my. Moment, and when you hit that piff any moment, obviously, you've been going through a lot for so long. What was your initial reaction? Were you angry that you've been through so much? And you're just finding this information now or obviously? You're excited about digging in deeper in seeing what could come a vet, but talk about those initial reactions when you start to feel better over the course of a few days. That's such a great question because I think it's true that while I was elated excited, because for the first time in my life I didn't have to carry an inhaler around and think that you know. My body was fundamentally cursed. You know cloak in I was shocked to fine that you know something as simple as excluding cosmic for my genetics type would have prevented me from the Medical Mary around downward cycle. You know that I went to some level. There was a part of me that became. Hannah triggered to like oh my. What is my parents? Know this you know. You. Pour me. A. Journey retakes. One of these starts reclaim. Our health is you do? Realize there is a bit of. archetype underneath some of the symptoms. You know would've been more convenient for me to say. The doctors are right. This pathway humid of causes it, but you manage symptoms by ways. You should thank us for saving your last person. Sandwiches that the way we eat in this country. Is Disease Camale, N detectives and I'm barely one of the things that happened for me to sort of took the red pill that speak event. Lady but I was also like Gosh. We need to change things people now. There are these ways to heal known. About and this big shift in your life in your health happen when you're early in college as I mentioned. What were you taking at the time? The time you know, it was sort of just exploring the why started out actually went to university as an art student, and Mason Gross and I found it a little bit more fizeau. I ended up. Just go to college proper and. Just. Five years trying out pretty much anything that interested me. It ended up getting a degree in philosophy, so it's like a deep expiration time both in an hour.

Hacking Our Way to Innovation with Rebecca Love, RN, MSN

"So here. The woman we really love to dig into wine. Nurses decided on that sealed in particular. So what made you want to be nurse so nursing was a second career choice for me? I had gone for Undergrad in a degree in international relations and a minor in Spanish and I thought that I was going to be a lawyer to be honest and I was working on a presidential campaign at the time when healthcare was a big issue. I remember being these rallies and everybody was talking about healthcare and there were no nurses in the audience or a lot of Ernie's or a lot of lobbyists or a whole bunch of people that know nurses and I don't know about you Daniel but my mom's nurse. Do you have any family members who are nurses in your family? My Grandmother was okay and so that was my piddle movement. My mom came out and we went to dinner and she said we really think you should be a nurse and I remember her. It was an interesting time the politics going on and I remember thinking you know what? How can you be a member of? How can you speak to the choir if you're not a member of it and if everybody's talking about healthcare but nobody a nurse here? How do we really know what needs to change? And what the problem. Yeah and that was where my life turns recognizing that to really impact change in healthcare. I probably had join healthcare Do that and that's where my journey began. That's amazing it's topic. I've talked to a couple of friends about we've talked about on here to how there isn't representation in Congress in government of nurses like what we're actually going through what we face on a daily basis. I think that's fascinating at that. Made you change your career path. That's amazing well. It's funny that you say that because the statement that made me change my career path was at my I want you know. I said I wanted to be a lawyer and my mom said to me she said you know there's plenty of strong lawyers out there in the world and she said but I can tell you is being a nurse. There's not enough strong nurses out there. I need more strong nurses on there to change. What nursing looks like to the world and and you to become a nurse and at that time? I didn't know what that meant. I I remember. It felt really importance. But it's now ten fifteen years later that I look back and I recognize those words shaped everything that I've done in nursing every step of the way and I know your own story about how hard times it was for you to be a nurse and how it's challenges we faced how you didn't always feel like you fit in are you also didn't feel like you had a voice and that was hard for me and I'm and how to learn how to navigate. What sometimes feels like a very disempowered profession to become more voicemail and more recognized but more importantly that necessarily placated she but really just given a seat at the table is. Hey you got this. You know what you're talking about and I respect your opinion as much as I respect. Everybody else is around the table. Not so much. Hey I'm just giving it placeholder for a nurse to have at the table. It's really sit there and say we want them here. Because we we get that you guys have value add. That's been really interesting place to come from and I don't know you know in your own personal With your conversation if you guys have felt the same kind of challenges at times yes One hundred percent. And that's something that I think just Added onto years of being like repressed as a nurse that led to ultimately me burning out at the bedside. And that's something that you've been really trying to champion a lot for to in that you know there's this fear like aren't nurses are burning out after two years we're reporting out all these new grads but they're burning out so quickly yeah two hundred fifty thousand nurses. We graduate a year in this country and we lose over fifty percent of them by the bedside within spheres a practice the largest exodus of a profession that nobody talks about and I like you left the bedside as a as an rn. Within two years. I went back to Grad. School became a nurse practitioner for that exact feeling of feeling so like I didn't have that voice and every time I stepped in and I felt like there were so many near misses where I begged you know for changes to happen or orders to be changed or medications to begin our interventions to happen literally knowing that things were going wrong but not having the ability to make those decisions to change. There's outcomes depending on other people to make those decisions and only be given. The toolbox is a nurse to sit there and say well I really think I really believe are really feel that we got to make this big this change or get medication and not giving the tools to actually effectively voice. Why I had the you know the knowledge in the expertise to make those decisions at everything I always did had to be signed off by somebody else because as I was considered for lack of a better world credible enough or had the license or the intelligence to be able to recognize that what we were seeing. Mary made sense it. We should be able to take initiatives to save patient's lives because that was always really hard place for me to citizens to sit there and beg other people and then sometimes it literally and I'm sure you face it if you felt like you were burnt out so often begging to make the changes that we did an often being told. Hey stay in your lane like if you see problems but your job is to be a nurse and to do those things. Your job is not to challenge the way that things are being done and under mentally. That always sat wrong with me Fundamentally because you probably nursing school told hey you're you're the advocate of the patient where you really get on but when we got out in practice man it was tough

Pick a Plan and GET AFTER IT

"Leadership means firmness not harshness or bullying understanding not weakness justice erase the freedom humaneness not intolerance generosity not selfishness pride. Not Egotism so little quote for you kick things off. This is coming very I ran across it the other day and as I ran across it I saw some of little bit of the dichotomy leadership in there and it just caught my attention. And it's a quote General Omar Bradley General with a good amount of name recognition but a general who kind of flew under the radar sometimes because he was competing with some some big names. You know he's competing with General Patton. He's compete with General Eisenhower. He's competing with General Montgomery so he kind of flew under the radar sometimes even though he does have the Bradley fighting vehicle named after him which is a awesome machine but he absolutely was a well regarded general in his own right born in eighteen. Ninety three in Randolph County Missouri worked as a boilermaker figured out he could get a free education by going to west point so he went to West Point graduated in Nineteen fifteen same years. Eisenhower by the way he was a really good athlete. Baseball Star could've played pro ball but chose to be in. The army chose to go and do his commitment to the army. One thousand nine hundred fifteen. You're probably thinking World War. One W W well. He actually didn't go to World War One and World War One. There were mining disputes in the unions in the in the minds up in Montana and they had to activate some army units to send them up there to guard the minds. And that's what he did. He did that for a little while. And then he did go to unit that was getting ready to deploy to World War One. The Spanish flu came which everyone seems to know about the Spanish flu. Now and there then there was the armistice and he didn't deploy so he didn't get any combat action in World War. One thought that that might hurt his career but he stayed in anyways ended up teaching tactics at the infantry school fast forward through the peace years may general in one thousand nine hundred forty two assigned the eighty second division the Twenty Eighth National Guard division eventually worked under General Patton as the deputy in charge of Second Corps and then took it over himself led the campaigns in Tunisia and Sicily. Ike Eisenhower selected Bradley to command the First Army during Operation Overlord D Day Command. He commanded the most troops of any general. Us General in history when he took command of the twelfth on weaker. One point three million troops to little decentralized command. Better come into play right there. Continue with all those troops to push through Europe until the fall Germany. We covered Ernie. Pyle on this podcast. Podcast number thirty nine. His book brave men. It was the heavies for my favor. Lines Ernie pyle nicknamed him the G. I. General because he was kind of a laid back down to Earth Guy didn't make a spectacle of himself. After the war he ran the VA for a while. The Veterans Administration I ever chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. During the Korean War retired in nineteen fifty-three after thirty eight years of service I found day. The Internet is amazing. I found any evaluation. You know we talk about the evaluations evaluation in the Marine Corps evaluation the navy evaluation. I found an evaluation of Bradley written by General Patent. Pretty cool because it shows it shows what type of a person patent was just in the way he wrote this thing so it says subject efficiency report through commanding general NATO USA APO five thirty four to add adjutant General War Department Washington DC name and grade of General Officer reported on Omar F Bradley Lieutenant General Period covered one July nineteen forty three to eight September nineteen forty two months in eight days duties performed commanding general to core one July nineteen forty three to eight September nineteen something unclear manner of performance superior F- Physical Activity Superior Physical Endurance Superior Knowledge of his profession superior for what command or duty would you specifically recommend him and army and then what opportunities have you had for observing him during period covered intimate daily contact. Does he rendered a willing and generous support to plans of superiors regardless of personal views. In the matter yes which is a very interesting topic to cover mean you think about what they've got in their physical duty not knowledge of his profession. What job would you recommend? Does he give generous supports to plans of superiors regardless of his personal views. No matter so this guy's going to back you up. The answer is yes and ten of all general officers of his grade. Personally known to you. What number would you give him on this list? And how many comprise your list and patterns answer is number one. I know all of them. Further remarks deemed necessary. None signed G. S. junior lieutenant general. Us Army commanded. So that's pretty awesome review. The interesting thing is if you know anything about the history of Bradley and Patton. There's some interesting dynamics. They first of all had very different personalities. Patent was you know flashy and go ego driven in a lot of ways and and Bradley was not and there's some quotes I pulled from patents journal Journals About Bradley. So it's interesting that he can have these right in that glowing like evaluation about him to try and get him promoted but at the same time here are some things he said about him. Bradley's to Conservative. He wants to wait until we can all jump into the fight together. By which time half our men will be. We'll have the flu trench foot. I wish he had a little more daring. Another one. Bradley is a good offer. Buddy utterly lacks it too bad. The IT Factor Echo Charles. Next one brag is a man of great mediocrity on the other hand. He has many attributes which are considered desirable. In general. He wears glasses which I have no idea I have no idea why. That's cool to be a general glasses. He has a strong jaw. He talks profoundly and says little and he is a shooting companion of our present chief of Staff. General Marshall also. He is a loyal man. I consider him to be among our better generals

How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire Our World

"What are social norms? So this is a great question and as a cross cultural psychologists. I tried to understand this really puzzling. Phenomena of culture culture is one of these puzzles because it's omnipresent. It's all around us but it's invisible like we tend to ignore it all the time and it's like the story of two fish. Were there swimming along? And they pass another fish. Who says how's the water boys and they swim on and wants US the other? What the Hell is water and for fish? This invisible thing is waterboy for humans. It's culture and a big part of culture is social norms or these unwritten standards for behavior that sometimes become more formalized in laws and rules but nevertheless we follow social norms all the time endlessly without even realizing it and we have to really understand their impact on social behavior. And that's why I wrote the book. That's so cool. Well thank you for writing it and for shyness late on this. But certainly there's individual differences in them like dark triad people. You know people who score high on the dark triad Scales and Machiavelli's and narcissism psychopathy. They they don't like social norms. They are versed. Do it. Well you know I've right in the book about sort of individual differences in people who like or dislike social norms rulemakers rube acres. You can think about the analogy of the chaos quarter. Muppets exactly like think about sesame. Street like the chaos. Muppets are like you know. Cookie Monster and you know and animal who loved to just create chaos. And don't follow rules by Ernie and Bert actually and Kermit the frog who love rules and I actually have tight-loose mindset quiz on my website where you can find out. Where do you veer in terms of mindsets people who like tightness really notice rules? They have a lot of impulse control. And they like structure. People who beer lose tend to ignore rules more often. They're more impulsive. But they're more creative and more open minded book. I talk about the advantages and disadvantages of this construct across levels from nations to neurons from states to organization. So it's something that I think about as a fractional pattern which is repeated pattern of phenomenon across different levels and I tried illuminate why titans differences evolve in the first place at Cross levels and what what consequence love the link that to creativity. Some people have. I wonder how that relates to some people. Argue that Asian cultures are less creative? You know then. Do you think that some of that can be explained by sort of the laser looseness titan of the culture itself? Yes so in our first analysis tight. Lucy was across thirty something nations where we were able to classify nations as veering Erg loose. Even knowing that all nations have tightened elements and some countries like Japan and Singapore China. Beer tighter than places like Brazil and New Zealand and the Netherlands Brazil anything goes indicators of Titus was the accuracy of clocks and how coordinated crops are city streets tight cultures the quad city streets. Pretty much say the same thing but in loose cultures like Brazil or Greece entirely. Sure what time it is because the clocks around you say a lot of different things and that speaks to something. That really is about the tight lose. Tradeoff tight cultures have a lot of order and loose cultures a lot of openness and that means that both have strengths and liabilities. Depending on your vantage point so your question about creativity. We have found that across nations across states. 'cause organizations that are tight. They tend to have less novelty idea generation than loose cultures by. What's interesting and we're finding this recently. Is that each. Has its own strengths. In terms of innovation. So who's cultures can create a lot of ideas but tight cultures can implement that much better so in fact both again have strengths that can be brought to bear on a common issue like innovation. Oh great have you read Richard Florida's work at all and the credit? Yeah the creativity class and yeah and at the city level. Also I think he's really staying. That's right because this also differs state by state within America rate. Do you think like is there a south difference versus? I don't know I don't WanNa grossly stereotype things without you. Actually telling me what the data says so in one of the chapter in the book. I talk about how we can move beyond red vs blue right right. In fact we have a paper in the Journal. Precedes National Academy that rank orders the fifty states into the tight and loose and often? You're saying that the South tends to actually of your tight. They have more strict rules. They have more order to some extent they have less creativity. They're also more polite so the route estates are the loosest states which tend to be on the coasts but those states had to have more creativity like like you surmised and so what got me does that we can kind of look at different different states now through a new Lens. One of the more important things that I talk about in the book is why these differences evolve in the first place and what we find across nation states etc is that groups. That have a lot of threat. Whether it's from Mother Nature like chronic disasters are famine or other human types of threats pathogens or population density or invasions tend to veer tighter. And the logic's pretty simple when groups have a lot of threat. They need rules to coordinate to survive and norm provide that they help people to actually control themselves in difficult situations and the titus states in the US tend to have more threat. They have more pathogens have more disasters and so forth and so there's some kind of logic to why groups evolved to be tighter loose. I mean with that sad and we could talk about it later. Threats now are whether perceived or real tend to produce the same psychology and. That's something nowadays that we're dealing with more. And more in terms of how tight who's manifesting itself in politics and in other contexts where threat is less objective and more

It was the idea behind the whole sketch that was funny and not so much the execution or the structure of it but the concept of what he was doing was hilarious. Terry Gilliam says and you have this booklet. That comes with the the the box set from short factory from factory. Terry Gilliam Cut. The Kovac showed knocked me sideways into a world where the bizarre and the daft and the preposterous all lived happily happily alongside wisdom whitten perception. I had never experienced anything so visually absurd and inventive so you you've just You were with Terry Terry recently. Yeah we did. A Kovac centennial event in London at the BFI. For the Monty Python. Fiftieth Anniversary. And I got to meet Terry Gilliam. And and he couldn't have been nicer and couldn't have been more complimentary about Ernie and I'd Never mad magazine. And Ernie Kovacs were the things that are similar to work Kertzman later. Yeah that's how mcleese yeah And he was totally influenced by. It's funny we were talking about the blackouts. Earning used music. A lot of ways and python used Terry Gilliam's animation into kind of Segue from one sketch to the next bring things back and all that so the very co vaccine thing that I think that they were doing purely with Terry regaling because they had never seen it. So Terry Gilliam's kid in Minnesota Group into Ernie Kovacs on the national show obviously wasn't going to get the show from philly now. Yeah now yeah. Yeah but and look at look at the generations. Well it's the the way. The Sky is influencing comedy for decades to come. Did this day to this day. Yeah Yeah I I love hearing that sort of my mission this year. One Hundred Years Centennial. You kinda you gotTa Make Make Hay someway. I really feel like this is Ernie's you know year to kind kind of make sure that people remember him what what's scary and I mean Franken I I think the reason we do the show. Look people whole. Don't remember who the Marx Brothers and Jack Benny are. You're lucky if they remember. Paul Newman is point. Yeah sure yeah and I I was. We were talking to some twenty year old. And he didn't know who David Letterman was. That's how quickly. Yeah it's like you're gone for a week. So Ernie Kovacs. I mean if you're gonNA remember anyone you might remember Benny or Groucho Ernie Kovacs completely. Well the the thing that's crazy is that This year we've done all these events and I kind of started to reach out to people besides Comedians so I reached out to some musicians. Gerald Casale from devaux was a huge huge fan and we did a panel with with him and some other people. We also had Chris Stein from bloody. I was surprised to find these Kovacs fans and and a wilner learn and and it was really like Christine. Had this moment where we were talking with him we just. I was so lucky to grow up. In this era I was in New York and I was a kid and I just thought this was was like you know you're bringing me back to a moment and I think that is the interesting thing is that it actually elicit something and people that saw him at the time that You know reminds some of their youth or something that was really great about Growing up and what interests fascinates me about Ernie Kovacs. What fascinated me about old movies and that was finding out how they would achieve special effects and they actually get the hands dirty cut things and pace things and fat fashion fashion? Now it's like if you ask. How did you achieve this special effect win like pursed this Knob? And that makes fire appear and then I press this Button and a dragon comes off but then he was always working without a budget wasn't yeah or No budget and even when he was finishing the horse yeah and and then toward the end The special he was doing. ABC He had a bunch of but he was still doing shows with dime-store novelty toys. And stuff like that and kitchen utensils dancing around to ask savell. But that's a thing where you know Those music videos that he would do you look at those and you think oh they would just take it one shot at a time but they were actually sustained sustained performance takes so where every cut you see is happening in the control room. Which means he's got to lay out the entire studio with all the forks and knives and the blender and everything? The people have to be all around pulling wires right on the beat Turning things on and off and it was it's like you said because you know somebody made this thing As opposed to somebody click on something. Th there's something about knowing it was done by a human sure that it makes this more of a connection and and nowadays like the most you know a star wars or Jurassic Park could be made by a two year old on their phone. Yeah nothing whatever. And he's great things that He trusted his crew and he had ideas but he basically would say you do it and I think the crew really loved him and wanted to you work hard because they got to do these great things they figure it out exactly and they got to do stuff. There was much more involved than just. Here's a living room set. Now we're done. I mean they got to to play with toys and and have fun with. I think that's that's one of the main reasons that besides the money ends of the old overtime they're getting but they were. They got to be creative and make like you can get their hands dirty. He dumped water on somebody. Audition goats run through restaurants in Abe suits. I mean this sounds like the early letterman show. It's in some ways it sounds like Conan's first show on NBC too. Because obviously Conan I think has been on the record as saying that Ernie Needy on the back wall of his set. I oh I think on that show. Oh I think that's true very good. Yeah what was Howard. The world's strongest aunt tell our listeners. Venue might have to jump twelve Howard. The world's strongest man was a segment that Dernie did on a semi regular basis on his daily half hour show on NBC for a year and a half and it was a shot of a miniature and eighty would do the voice of how are the world's strongest and you'd see they'd manipulated of course with magnets the best they could with no rehearsal moving chairs around. And now he's GonNa play a game of pool and picnic and it was all eighties. He's e- partially improv improvise. But it was her voice as the world's strongest and people sent in gifts for Howard the world's strongest and Ernie would hold them up on this show and we got these gifts and then whoever was would get a you know a watch or radio in the mail as a thank you but people sent in gifts for the characters and now that you've mentioned let's get your mom your into the act your how. How did they? I mean she was discovered on. Arthur Godfrey's talent scouts. Yes absolutely and Ernie would sad like to take credit but he couldn't well his his producer reducer basically said Kita show in Philadelphia and said to my my mom like. Would you like to come down to meet this guy. You Know Ernie Kovacs and she thought Colfax Dan Colfax Kovacs and They went and she went down. There thought she was going to work for a couple of weeks and turned into a pretty good partnership and Ernie Ernie was married at the time and it was not going well and at some point they got divorced and my mom and Ernie then started dating and had a pretty pretty whirlwind love affair for quite a while. Now now that marriage to say it didn't go well. Yeah he's an yes yes she liked he. He gave her the kids for a while because they decided in court he was the better parent he eventually. Yeah think about that as a man. Dan was given custody of his kids to happen. And then he hands them over to her to just take care of them for the day and and he doesn't see them for another two years and the crazy thing is if you think about it he had to be funny for those two yes daily live basis leases racy. He had to. He was spending money on a private detective else. He would they would say they're in you know Wherever there in Texas? This he'd get on a plane after a show and he'd fly down there. Sorry we can't find him. They're not here he was spending. I mean Ernie had a spending problem and but he had spared no expense to find his girls. He was really just distraught about this so key eventually. They found them in Florida but he spent a long time and a lot of money and being very funny on dodge. I don't think he's. He's spending like millions on detectives. Yeah who are not doing a goddamn thing and they say say the way it was tracked down his mother She was sending postcards every day to different different areas. Have you seen these girls. That could that actually doesn't sound too far up. I you know Gilbert good job. We learned some time the first time someone sprays me now. It's an educational program. Well you know it's it was. It was very sad and you know the girls literally did not know how to use a knife and fork and they were you know. My Mom told me a story that when they would be in a car and police car would drive by. They would duck because that's what they're it's a miracle that he found them. Yeah you know. And they said like the mother was just sending out a postcard up any each and and saying have you seen they look like this. Have you seen and eventually someone said. I saw two girls unbelievable. Yeah Yeah and Ernie's mom you know. God bless her. There's there's many crazy stories about this Janette affairs by Loris Lebron and the TV movies Yes yes of course. Lebron is great in that and And Jeff Goldblum is great but it was a weird situation for my mom because he's got like integrate herself into a whole a new family. It's I mean she was fairly young. Yeah she was like not even thirty and she was basically all of a sudden a mom. What I love is reading reading in her memoir which you were kind enough to send on me Singapore song that the the way she talks about meeting him how she knew instantly. She got an electric charge of her arm when he shook her hand. The Ashby says there's a video somewhere you can find it online where she says. I'd never seen a person like that and I thought to myself. I want one of those as she knew she knew she she. She was from a very white bread. You Know Presbyterian Pennsylvania background and she's you know when I saw Kovacs. I'd never seeing someone with a mustache and a cigar and look like a gangster and she thought I want one of those. It's it's sweet to read in the book to their courtship to how he was he you you know lavishing attention on her and and lavishing money of course even when he had no money yes yeah he they. It definitely had a world. My my mom was married three times but even with my dad I knew that like Ernie was the love of her life. It was it was pretty apparent. What was that piece? He took her back to the the To the House to listen to a a classical piece all the the One she had trouble listening to after he passed because it was too. It was too heartbreaking breaking for her. It's not Eric saw is pretty which I can't play. Okay but don't ask me for citing make something up and say.

The people have to be all around pulling wires right on the beat Turning things on and off and it was it's like you said because you know somebody made this thing As opposed to somebody click on something. Th there's something about knowing it was done by a human sure that it makes this more of a connection and and nowadays like the most you know a star wars or Jurassic Park could be made by a two year old on their phone. Yeah nothing whatever. And he's great things that He trusted his crew and he had ideas but he basically would say you do it and I think the crew really loved him and wanted to you work hard because they got to do these great things they figure it out exactly and they got to do stuff. There was much more involved than just. Here's a living room set. Now we're done. I mean they got to to play with toys and and have fun with. I think that's that's one of the main reasons that besides the money ends of the old overtime they're getting but they were. They got to be creative and make like you can get their hands dirty. He dumped water on somebody. Audition goats run through restaurants in Abe suits. I mean this sounds like the early letterman show. It's in some ways it sounds like Conan's first show on NBC too. Because obviously Conan I think has been on the record as saying that Ernie Needy on the back wall of his set. I oh I think on that show. Oh I think that's true very good. Yeah what was Howard. The world's strongest aunt tell our listeners. Venue might have to jump twelve Howard. The world's strongest man was a segment that Dernie did on a semi regular basis on his daily half hour show on NBC for a year and a half and it was a shot of a miniature and eighty would do the voice of how are the world's strongest and you'd see they'd manipulated of course with magnets the best they could with no rehearsal moving chairs around. And now he's GonNa play a game of pool and picnic and it was all eighties. He's e- partially improv improvise. But it was her voice as the world's strongest and people sent in gifts for Howard the world's strongest and Ernie would hold them up on this show and we got these gifts and then whoever was would get a you know a watch or radio in the mail as a thank you but people sent in gifts for the characters and now that you've mentioned let's get your mom your into the act your how. How did they? I mean she was discovered on. Arthur Godfrey's talent scouts. Yes absolutely and Ernie would sad like to take credit but he couldn't well his his producer reducer basically said Kita show in Philadelphia and said to my my mom like. Would you like to come down to meet this guy. You Know Ernie Kovacs and she thought Colfax Dan Colfax Kovacs and They went and she went down. There thought she was going to work for a couple of weeks and turned into a pretty good partnership and Ernie Ernie was married at the time and it was not going well and at some point they got divorced and my mom and Ernie then started dating and had a pretty pretty whirlwind love affair for quite a while. Now now that marriage to say it didn't go well. Yeah he's an yes yes she liked he. He gave her the kids for a while because they decided in court he was the better parent he eventually. Yeah think about that as a man. Dan was given custody of his kids to happen. And then he hands them over to her to just take care of them for the day and and he doesn't see them for another two years and the crazy thing is if you think about it he had to be funny for those two yes daily live basis leases racy. He had to. He was spending money on a private detective else. He would they would say they're in you know Wherever there in Texas? This he'd get on a plane after a show and he'd fly down there. Sorry we can't find him. They're not here he was spending. I mean Ernie had a spending problem and but he had spared no expense to find his girls. He was really just distraught about this so key eventually. They found them in Florida but he spent a long time and a lot of money and being very funny on dodge. I don't think he's. He's spending like millions on detectives. Yeah who are not doing a goddamn thing and they say say the way it was tracked down his mother She was sending postcards every day to different different areas. Have you seen these girls. That could that actually doesn't sound too far up. I you know Gilbert good job. We learned some time the first time someone sprays me now. It's an educational program. Well you know it's it was. It was very sad and you know the girls literally did not know how to use a knife and fork and they were you know. My Mom told me a story that when they would be in a car and police car would drive by. They would duck because that's what they're it's a miracle that he found them. Yeah you know. And they said like the mother was just sending out a postcard up any each and and saying have you seen they look like this. Have you seen and eventually someone said. I saw two girls unbelievable. Yeah Yeah and Ernie's mom you know. God bless her. There's there's many crazy stories about this Janette affairs by Loris Lebron and the TV movies Yes yes of course. Lebron is great in that and And Jeff Goldblum is great but it was a weird situation for my mom because he's got like integrate herself into a whole a new family. It's I mean she was fairly young. Yeah she was like not even thirty and she was basically all of a sudden a mom. What I love is reading reading in her memoir which you were kind enough to send on me Singapore song that the the way she talks about meeting him how she knew instantly. She got an electric charge of her arm when he shook her hand. The Ashby says there's a video somewhere you can find it online where she says. I'd never seen a person like that and I thought to myself. I want one of those as she knew she knew she she. She was from a very white bread. You Know Presbyterian Pennsylvania background and she's you know when I saw Kovacs. I'd never seeing someone with a mustache and a cigar and look like a gangster and she thought I want one of those. It's it's sweet to read in the book to their courtship to how he was he you you know lavishing attention on her and and lavishing money of course even when he had no money yes yeah he they. It definitely had a world. My my mom was married three times but even with my dad I knew that like Ernie was the love of her life. It was it was pretty apparent. What was that piece? He took her back to the the To the House to listen to a a classical piece all the the One she had trouble listening to after he passed because it was too. It was too heartbreaking breaking for her. It's not Eric saw is pretty which I can't play. Okay but don't ask me for citing make something up and say.

I appreciate him doing this. Because he usually only remembers the stuff he gets right. But I was pulling with the organization to draft choi- Leonard, even though based on mock drafts it would have been early and they drafted vessel drafted poorly. He did. And not only that he he drafted players and on on occasion, sign players as free agents who weren't competitors. You know, there wasn't ever any toughness in the organization, but at the same time he signed Gilbert arenas for the first time. You know, that wasn't obvious Gilbert arenas gonna turn into you in all star. Let that he had what it turned out to be a good stretch of years. He pulled off one of the biggest one sided deals of all time when he traded. Quami bound for Koran Butler seriously. You talk about a massive fleecing, Ernie dealt the fifth pick and to horrible contracts, Jerry Stackhouse's contract and Christian leaders contract for Antoine. Jamison. All right. Those two deals alone made the wizards in actual playoff team, which they hadn't been in years. It turned the wizards in the moment from one of the worst franchises in all of sports to a perennial playoff team. You know, they had had one playoff appearance..

"He had ample time to get better results. And he didn't it's funny because I saw him on Sunday at the Michigan state Duke game at halftime. And we talked for about five ten minutes. It's and I said to him you gonna be okay or not. Yeah. Everything's gonna be fine. I just have had this feeling for a while. Now that this was going to be the year that Ted made the move. And then Ben standing I'll give him some credit on this. He interviewed Ted about a week and a half ago. And basically, if you if you read through some of those quotes, you got the distinct feeling that Ted was ready to pull the trigger on this. So I wanna say up front, I'm absolutely in favor of this. I have absolutely no problem with Ernie Grunfeld getting fired. I wouldn't have had a problem with it happening last year the year before the year before that I think four or five years ago when the wizards were back into a mode of looking like they were going to be a playoff team for the next five to ten years with a young wall and a young Beal and team that I actually thought was enjoyable to watch play. I would not have been in favor. Of that in that in that particular moment, but I am in favor of it. And I hope they make the right move and hire somebody that can get it done. I'm gonna you're gonna interrupt. I I was gonna say Ted had an interesting. He's he's talking to the media either Justice as we speak head this interesting, quote here that I wanted to bring up to you. He said it was the for the reason on the firing. It was very very binary on what would happen this year. And we didn't meet any of her goals. So that what was drove that's that was what drove it. It wasn't a cumulative effect. Man, TED talks a lot of corporate speak. You know, every go be beyond the corporates. Yeah. But but he can never just come out and say this wasn't about Ernie's overall record. This was about a feeling that I had that it wasn't going in the right direction. Now, you know, it's the way he's the way he delivers communicates. Sometimes it just it's like this. You know, this corporate babble tech speaks. Oh my God. It just it's it's pretentious on some level. But that it came down to one year and only one year is kind of crazy. It's crazy. And it's not true. It's really not true. Because it's got if just came down to one year it's disingenuous from this standpoint. He didn't have John wall. Shear it. He he may not have John wall. Next year. The injury to John wall is a series. Team injury. And if it came down to just this year, wouldn't you give the benefit of the doubt to everybody in the organization that the best player had a severe season ending injury. Or arguably the best player come on? That's disingenuous. So. There. Couple of things first of all I I'm just gonna I'm just gonna state this. But I don't want you to get it confused with. I am totally in favor of Ted firing Grunfeld and moving on to the next general manager. But Ernie Grunfeld has never been the worst general manager in the history of the NBA or the history of sports or the worst general manager this town has ever seen. He's not that you know, I'll ask Tim Legler about that. Because one of the questions I have for Tim is just to get a sense from Tim as to what people around the league have thought basketball people with bought about Ernie because it's been my impression. In fact, I went back last night and went through the last three or four years of general manager rankings NBA general manager rankings sometimes as put together as a list by a writer sometimes as put together as a list of basketball people. Speaking on the condition of anonymity. And Ernie was on one not one list. Could I find Ernie could I find Ernie even in the bottom five of general managers as a general rule in among thirty teens..

"And tell them we told you to call well when we left here yesterday the day got pretty busy. Didn't it just a little bit got pretty busy when we were finished with the podcast yesterday. We're gonna get to all of it including Ernie Grunfeld, and Tim Legler's going to join us on the show today. I really wanted to talk to Tim about about the situation in the job. And how good it is. And what he would do. In fact, I think Tim should be an actual candidate for the job. But that's for another day. Perhaps. I don't know. Maybe we'll get into it with him. I'll tell you what the my Ernie discussion won't be won't be an exaggerated hit job on Ernie Grunfeld. I completely agree with this decision. I have said for three years running. Now, even though they used to be a defender of Ernie. There's no defense left. I'm ready to move on. From Ernie Ernie Grunfeld, not the worst general manager in the history sports. All right in so many of you tried to make him out to be that yesterday. Social media, did lots of people did lots of people who barely ever watched a wizards game in the regular season are absolutely convinced that there's never been a worse GM in the history of sports. Anyway, look, it's been so bad. I guess that. So many haven't been watching super hats, that's proof alone. Why Ernie should have gone fair enough on that point? Anyway, gets Ernie shortly, and I'll bring Tim leg Laurent as. Well, but I wanna start with what was called by some one of the biggest nights in DC sports history last night. The return of Bryce Harper to NATs park aka the snake pit. Yeah. Mets park. Last night. Was a snake pit. I have many thoughts about last night. And I'm just gonna rip through them. All right. I'll start with this it. It was not one of the biggest nights in DC sports history. It was an interesting night. Very interesting night both going into it. And certainly during it. It was intense to it was an intense moment watching Bryce Harper's I bat as a Philadelphia Phillie back in DC, but you could have gotten into the park Jesse, you know, last night for next to nothing plenty of available tickets for very reasonable prices on stubhub. You know, maybe the weather had something to do with it. I don't know. And I doubt very seriously. If the game will do some sort of biggest night ever in DC. Sports TV rating. I don't think it will do that. But it was did do pretty well assure data about a five locally. Okay. So I'm sure it did. Well, but it wasn't going to do a playoff number. You know, what's gonna come any closer anywhere near what what the playoff games have done here previously. It was though in all seriousness. It was a very interesting night because it was a superstar player, and this city hasn't had many of those over the years a former MVP coming back to DC for his first game for the first time. And I think many were curious to see how he would handle it how he would play and how the crowd would treat him. We've been talking about this ever since he signed in Philadelphia this April second return the game was delayed because of the weather, but when he came up to bat in in that first inning. He was booed and booed. Loudly. I wasn't at the game. I was watching on television. If there were cheers. They were barely audible on TV. Which is the way I consumed it. And I think Aaron the way you consumed it, right? You weren't there wasn't there. It was an impressive in impressive chorus of Boeing and booze people dressed up for the occasion. And the dress up was primarily anti Bryce. All right. Nets fan seemed to be an agreement on this that he betrayed them. And he was now the enemy, and I think they did a very good job of making that clear in in those first at bats the moment of his first at bat was intense watching it, you know, it was that kind of anticipation that make sports so good when you get those moments. You know, it's live..

"Ernie Brown on news and information, five seventy KLIF. before the top of the hour. Thank you for being here today. This is Ernie Brown on five seventy KLIF. All right. I quick story here. I'll I'll get to this PC Christmas. Was invited out to dinner on Saturday. And went with some friends. I always try to make it clear when I get invited someplace when somebody calls me say, hey, we want you to join us. First question out of my mouth who is us and often I will decline if there are multiple people there. I don't know. I just don't want to get into it. Suspicious type. Not anything out of suspicion. Are you afraid of being set up on a blind date or something? I, you know, I just don't want to get in the middle of an uncomfortable conversation. I just don't want to do with the wallflower. That's your you're looking for handle house. This the wallflower. No, no, no. I just sometimes they say we all just being a bunch of guys or we're gonna we're going on. Okay. Well, who are the people that are going with you? Well, so and so I don't know those people. Well, I don't want to go and I'll stay home. That's just the way. I'd rather do it's free country. So I changed that rule this weekend. And I got one of the funniest lines. I've ever heard in my life, and it was completely. Everybody missed it. But me. Or everybody was too embarrassed. So it was on the naughty side here. No, the Dr need have the dump button ready to go. There were seven people. And there was one of these guys. And he seemed like a really nice purse. Nice guy, just not. Right. And there's just no other way. He obviously clearly had smoked a lot of weed in his life short of a picnic. Exact. Gotcha. All right. So anyway, somehow, the convocation conversation came to me, and they say what do you do for a living? I said well, mostly I rub people the wrong way. Ha funny line there. And and he said.

"Ernie Brown on news. Now, your trending topics monitoring social media post among our listeners in DFW vs or the trending topics right now, we shower for training topic number three Ernie President Donald Trump has nominated wild Bill bar to be the next attorney general of these United States. Wow, that's a life changer for me. If an aim sounds familiar, it's because Barr served the same post under president George H W Bush from ninety one to ninety three. Citing stuff. I got no big argument when I was working in Washington. In the news department at this national news organization, they they came running in one day and said there's a new chief of staff at the White House. And my response was this. What do I care? Does this affect anybody's life? Does anybody really who gives a rat's rear end who the gatekeeper is? And this is the same kind of news to me. I mean, it's important. Yeah. You want to know who the guy is going to be holding the office. I get that. But at the same time does it really affect people every day lives. Throughout the breathless nature of the reporting of this today. Trump being Trump says he was my first choice from day one. Then why didn't you make him your first choice? What's the issue here? You're in charge. You said you were gonna pick people somehow he forgot that I guess so trending topic number two onto more fun news. I love this an ancient strain of the plague has been discovered in a you guessed it Swedish tomb. I didn't guess that worried is laid it would lay doormat for five thousand years dead right there on the spot. Did they have? Pyramids. I didn't know about in Sweden Sweden. Oh, yeah. Big big for Faeroes back then in Sweden lotta Swedish pharaohs, they built the tombs gorgeous may ice. Yeah. They did. They were just big ice. Tombs? Researchers say the strain was previously unknown and likely responsible for the deaths of a whopping seventy eight people. All right, wait a minute before you go on. This actually is interesting to me in one respect because if you've ever seen the movie the thing ever see that movie now all right now, I'm not talking about the one from the fifties where the guy walking around with the suit. I'm talking about the one where it was some kind of germ or something that they discovered and Wilford Bramley turns into an alien, and you turn to these horrible things. And at the end once they realized that this this thing, whatever it was there at the North Pole. I believe or maybe the Antarctic I don't remember. But wherever it was they realized it was not going to be able to get out by using one of. Of these human bodies as a host of by the way, this is going somewhere just bear with me. It finally said I'm gonna just go bury myself out in the ice. And wait for the next crew to come in and Thami out by accident. So you had the same principle is to this. If you have ice melting that hasn't melted for decades or for centuries. Suddenly you have germs that have not seen the light of day and been around for centuries, and we may not have immunity to them like those guys on that island were that that missionary got killed there. Everybody said don't go to that island. Because a they'll kill you. And be you could kill them. Just by being there by breathing on them. Sure. Once again, another reason to blame goal global warming. Yeah. Exactly. I thought I bring that into the conversation today, this particular strain had genetically mutated into the deadliest form of the plague which is the pneumonic plague. Bindings did new moniker? Bhubaneshwar? It starts with a pay followed by an N. Okay. So it's pneumonic. Then I've never heard of that. Pretty sure I'm reading correct, I it'd be time. The finding has helped scientists understand how the disease traveled across Europe in the meal Lipik air my favorite air. Oh, sure. Yeah. Devastating the population in early mega settlements not maga- before his time was before that. But mega settlements kind of like the mega mega, you know. Like, the big stores, we go to live in these big places and grow up together. If you could live in any time period, would you wanna live in any other time period, I'm living it, I, you know, I guess you gotta say the president because I don't want to go back to where he bathed once a year just. Filth. Yeah. Well, you do that every time easing cold. You got to cut wood for fire constantly like that's just your daily job. Liked about your cabin. I like that. I don't have to do it. Like, that's that's that's like. It's fun because it's not my job. I read it's my job. It's not fun. I read a story about John D Rockefeller. Who was when you put it in today's terms the richest man in the history of the world. Yes. With a wealth of well over two hundred billion dollars. Lawf- lived in the early eighties bucks up. He he lived in the early part of the twentieth century think we know who he is. Okay. Well, a lot of people may not. But the question was would you rather live then with his money or live now with your current income? And when they describe what life was like back in nineteen fifteen nineteen ten Keno five, it became very clear that though my goal is to dominate the world and have more money than anybody. Yeah. I would rather live down because the things that we take for granted. Now like, I don't know medicine. Sure did not exist that just simple Advil. Yeah. Did not exist. Then your life expectancy. If you've got bitten by a snake? You're dead. Yeah. If you've got bit by Snyder, you're going to die about everything you got the flu you're dead. I mean, you got anything you're going to die. And I that alone was enough. But you know, daddy gets sick. And they do some thing that we consider barbaric in the hospital electric, try to electrocute you bleed. Yeah. Death electric lights off and on sometimes worked sometimes didn't. There were no safety. There were there are no safety regulations to protect us that we take for granted you eat out in a restaurant, you're taking your life in your own hand. And it just goes on and they just listed all these horrifying things at my poor grandmother grew up in share. And now, I know why when I look at a picture of her when she's seventeen she looked like she was fifty rough times rough time. So I'm living in the time. I wanna be living healthier food though, actually, probably so. Yeah. Trainy topic number one Kevin Hart. The comedian is out as the Oscars host after somebody dug up old, homophobic tweets have part of this. I've got. I got because his apology. I think almost forty years old. If you don't believe that he would change grow evolve. As a hit older. I don't know to tell you. Let me play another one another is this part of his still sure, okay? I don't.

"Is Ernie Brown on news and information, five seventy KLIF. Nineteen after the top of the hour, Ernie Brown along with Chad Dickson and Bill Barnard our technical and musical director doing his part to keep the broadcast on the air. This is from politico is entitled did beta blow it. And I'm going to read you some pieces of this just briefly because to give you the background on this. The premise of the article is is why did beta Rourke who had a superior brand creation. In other words, he marketed himself. Very very well. Why did he blow it by being such a lousy candidate? All right. So here we go. His idea his strategy in this case, regardless of party or background or geography or any other difference that somebody might want to highlight? We all have this in common were Americans were Texans. We want what's good for the state. We once what what's good for the country in running against Ted Cruz, a name, and a political brand synonymous with partisanship O'Rourke would represent the antidote. Kindness instead of chaos agree ability instead of animosity decorum instead of demolition and selling his candidacy. Bottom line was he wanted people know that he wasn't about partisanship. And it worked by offering a cause rather than a candidacy O'Rourke convinced America that a Texas democrat could win statewide for the first time since nineteen Ninety-four a staggering seventy million dollars flooded into his campaign Hollywood celebrities calling him on a first name basis. Lebron James with a black and white betas sign national reporters took turns defying the guy the skateboarding punk rocking. Congressman and all the while O'Rourke was flat lining never poli more than forty seven percent when he got close. It wasn't because he went up it was because Ted Cruz had gone down a little bit somewhere along the line, the rock concert crowds and record-setting fundraising and JFK comparisons obscured basic contradiction between beta or rock, the national heartthrob and beta O'Rourke, the Texas heretic while the coastal media's narrative emphasizes appeals to common ground framingham. As Obama ask post partisan figure the candidate himself tackled unapologetically? Leftward issues. He endorsed Medicare for all from Bernie Sanders. He called repeatedly for Donald Trump to be impeached. A position rejected by most Democrats. He flirted with the idea of getting rid of immigrations and customs enforcement, the idea of no borders. He took those positions and others were the fearlessness that reinforced his superstardom in the eyes of the democratic base nationwide and repelled him from the people who are actually going to vote for him. Over the past six months. The author said he spoke with a lot of Republicans a lot of them don't care for Ted Cruz, all of them are baffled by the disconnect between the superior branding of aerobics candidacy, and what they see as the tactical malpractice of his campaign. A bottom line is what they're saying in this. This goes on by the way for twenty five pages. Very well resourced and very well research. They said why would this guy who has this superior branding out there? Act like Bernie Sanders is a candidate in Texas. He's not gonna win. The Cruz campaign has said that they were concerned because they recognize the great branding of this guy. And they thought he was going to run kind of in the middle as most Texan Democrats. Do he didn't and it's easy. And because of that and once again, this guy sourced this pretty well. Most democrat insiders in Texas expect him to lose. It's funny. The things you mentioned before the segment started. I wrote down why I thought he was going to lose. And I wrote down abolish ice impeach the president. Yeah. And it I think deli near times nailed it. You would expect somebody you're gonna run in Texas. If you're gonna be a democrat. Hey, he needs to be kind of like a blue dog democrat. And instead he adopted Bernie Sanders, even Nancy Pelosi, smartly and Ted Cruz commercial. Yeah. He says even Nancy Pelosi. Does it bring up impeaching the president? Yeah. If you're gonna run in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band. Sure. I mean, that's the reality of it. Now, I don't know tomorrow he may come out on top. But most insiders who know the business say, they don't expect that he will the fact that his polls have flatlined most of the time he said, the the type of national endorsements that he's getting the type of national attention New York Times last week finally actually investigated who is this guy. And it was let's put it this way a less than flattering portrayal of him. And they got flamed on social media by all well, I see you're in the bag for Ted Cruz. Yeah. That's right. The New York Times is in the bag for Ted Cruz. That's the way it works. But no, you can't say anything bad. You got to follow the party line. But they finally started talking about, hey, this guy pulled a Ted Kennedy left. A woman in the middle of a car in the middle after driving drunk to almost die. And nobody wants to talk about it. I I don't know who this guy is because he never did anything. Congress something else. The New York Times brought up and something this political article brought up the guy it's nothing to distinguish himself as anyone of relevance in congress. Okay. That doesn't none of that matters. President Obama had never done anything anything and the guy got elected president. So it doesn't matter. What's matters is the branding and the image. You put out there. Popularity contents. It really comes down to that. If you brand yourself. Well, you become that thing. But what they're asking in this article is why did he branded himself so well, and then Russia's far left these he could get so Texans would say. What what are you kidding? You really want to go through an impeachment trial. You really want to go through that crap. You want to get rid of ice? You wanna have open borders. What's wrong with you? So that's that's what this article is really about. Now, we'll see how it turns out. Of course. Tomorrow is voting day. No.
