"Too you know when they do the LEGO Islamic horror. So much about Felicia. As people get to let all the refresh, they don't need. The next place. It is we want to take us. So it's going to be a much different. Much more. We can make. Someone says good job. Studio. DNS if you could, like linear thalasseri, altamente. See, that's all we're trying to do.
Edward Snowden Granted Russian Citizenship
"Ask you. News as of two days ago that the former KGB colonel in the Kremlin has provided Russian citizenship to Snowden. Your reaction, uncle Jim. Bye, Felicia. Why do we even care? That's the nice thing. I'm glad he's there. He's a traitor. That's what I want. People want to pardon him. He's a traitor who's dumped information. He didn't have any knowledge about was not vetted. He and Assange both and all of it. They didn't, they didn't blow a single whistle on a single crime. So this is the issue for me. If you see and look, we know bad stuff happened, right? NSA DIA, we know. The data farms and everything else. But if you've got an issue, it's like the FBI whistleblower we had on my show yesterday, Carl serf. You use the tools available. You don't go to communist China with the hard drives and then to Moscow if you believe in America, do you Jim, because that's what Snowden did. You think the Chinese might have copied that hard drive. I think maybe they got that before everyone else. And then you think Russia had it. And all of that, there was no way it would have taken hundreds of analysts a month or two just to figure out what was on there. And they just dumped it on the Internet so that all our enemies could read it. It may or may not have gotten anybody killed, but that's not how it works. We have inspectors general. We have whistleblower protections. And if you have an actual crime, which they didn't, then you have ways to do that. I hope he I hope he dies in Russia and never sees the shores of this country again. Unless he's in chains. And
Activist Felicia Killings Joins Dinesh to Talk About Black History
"Guys, I'm really thrilled to welcome to the podcast. Well, a new face, Felicia killings. She's an award winning coach, bestselling author, CEO of the Felicia killings foundation. She's also the CEO of something called the conscious conservative movement, a kind of national outreach group that bridges the gap between black voters and conservative politics. I've been following Felicia on social media and I think that behind what she's saying is a very interesting and important philosophy. And I wanted to bring her on the podcast to talk a little bit about it. Felicia, it's great to meet you virtually through the studio. Tell people a little bit about who you are and talk a little bit about how you developed the philosophy that you're putting forward in your motivational speaking, your writing and your coaching. Well, first, thank you so much for having me on your show. It's such an honor to be here. Blessings to you and your following. I am coach Felicia killings, like you said the founder of the foundation as well as the conscious conservative movement. And to answer your question, my philosophy was developed really from my father's upbringing. All we know is black conservatism. I've only done my father to vote Republican. And back home, this was kind of an anomaly, which is pretty much typical of today's black Republicans, but he was very much so adamant about conservatism using conservative politics as the best solution for solving our problems, but he never taught me to disassociate from being black. We love and appreciate the culture, the history. We can see conservatism fully represented in all the things that we do. And so for that reason we can continue to bring that same message to my platform, the conservative bank.

"Disease. But when I go to the CDC website, the CDC call it a public health alert and it's coming from me and having sex with me. And they said, they solution to it is they got to get more vaccinations. Instead of saying wrap it up, we was out people out having sex during my time. They were talking about wrap it up. Wrap it up. I'm rubbing it. Say not even telling homosexuals that 'cause I guess if they tell them to wrap it up, then they gonna call them a biggie. You know, they just got all kind of crazy food and stuff. Food is talking going on in this world. Now they tell my Dave and codify same sex marriage. You know what? If you want me to tell you what these people really up to. See the reason why they saying that they gonna codify same sex marriage and all this kind of stuff 'cause see why they got your mind on that. They distract in you. They detract in you and they doing something else dirty that they gonna tell you about in a few weeks. If you just watch it, just watch them. They doing what they're doing and so you could be riding with this codified. What a title about trying to find me. You dumb idiots that I'm working on something else right now that if you up. Okay, that's what kind of fat means. You watching a week or two, they don't come up with some old BS, but see one of these days. You did ain't gonna be long. God, like they always try to act like they're so smart. Well, you know, we got a thunderstorm in a week where we got a flood in a week, but see, it's something on the barometer now that you don't even see. 'cause you know why? 'cause you're too stupid. You know what? 'cause you gotta wrap up a big man. You know what a reservation is. A mind that can't no sense come in. The only thing that goes on a reprobate mind is perversion. It's creating evil to be dirty to people. Don't anything from God. God said, I turned them over to that man. That ain't sitting up talking about me and you ain't thinking about God. God tell me to do something. I ain't gonna do what God told you. You don't be nasty you doing it? God, the reason why you doing what you doing. God tell me to do something. God said he responsible for everything that happens in this world, baby. You're doing everything in other words. You think that you defaming God. You are proving that God is God. You even right now, because anybody that studded the word of God and know the word of God. When they see you acting a fool, they know that, that's just a talking point for us to talk on, but in the back of their mind, a person knows. Said, wow, you know, that person, life ain't gonna mean nothing. That person was born to be nothing. That person was born. You know, in order to, in other words, your life is gonna save many lives. See why you think that you killed the people that you gotta allow you to kill people out. It's because that's what, that's because that's what God is allowing. It ain't because you got no power. But God allowing other people whoever he wants to think that you got the power to kill somebody else. No, you don't really, you don't have that counter power. You still don't we say that like that. Because in a sense, it is like that. See, if you believe God is a homosexual and he got something to do with homosexuality, he's gonna let you believe that. But see the other person crossed the street, they know them. It's whatever you want to believe. Because see God is a jealous God. He said you can't serve me and your false God at the same time. You either serve, you either worship me, dismiss the other or worship the other, and dismiss me. It ain't no you ain't even right, like you do in these campaigns. You got two, you got the person running for Senate 27 seat. You got both of their signs up in your yard. See, you can't have God name in the devil name. You know, campaign. See, you campaigning now. And you and politics now trying to play God. So you think you can be with God. At night and be with the devil in the daytime. But I'm here to tell you, you can't serve, but one God. But God said, I am jealous. That's one of my names. I am a jealous God. See, if we walk around and say, oh, I'm not jealous of nobody. I'm not doing something. God said, I am a jealous guy. And I want you to know. If I do something for you, I want credit for it. I want credit for it. God, make it God. That's why I serve the God is the most truthful person you could ever know. Like some people be walking there behind till my lord the lord can't even got him like a thief in the night. No he didn't. God being one people over and over. Over and over, over and over, over and over. That's one thing about God. God is not no reactionary God. He not no God. They can be pushed by emotion because I be asking him sometimes lord how in the world and he come to me sometimes and say, you know, that's what people used to ask about you. How in the world? He said, but you know, I knew that I was gonna save you one day. And that's why I'm God, and he's not God, Felicia. That's why I'm good. You don't know what I'm doing. You don't know what I'm doing. That's why I'm gone. That's why I'm God. That's why I survived from generation to generation to generations to generations of jiggy race into generation. So you talk about what I do, but do you really know what I do? I'm not God because I walked up and said I'm God, and I ain't got to. It's nothing I have to prove and show. I threw and showed myself all the time. I'm the one made pharaoh. He said, I created pharaoh for the very purpose of what he did. He said, don't you tell him all this? Before the first play. I ain't even information on pharaoh. He said, I created him because your children, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren, your great, great, great grandchildren with great, great great grandchildren. Don't know. I'm gone. I got the almighty power. I don't care how

"And I ask God to leave me. And what I look at is all these Democrat run cities, that they talking about now. They are, they are run by Republican states. This state is over the cities. But the only thing they want your mind, they want a ton of your mind to the Democrat cities. Say I keep telling you the Democrats and the Republicans wanting the same. One just got a D behind their name and one got an hour behind their name. That's why I got an eye behind my name independent. That's why I got a G behind my name, God. Well, I want to say before God, I ain't feeling beat behind no bad. You'll fold my name. See, that's why I don't get it. I don't get involved in all this groupthink stuff. If I can't leave the group, I don't mind you leading the group, but you're going to have to leave the group. See, I don't mind a person. I don't mind having a leader, but I need a leader. If you're not going to be the leader step back, I can leave. Right? I don't know if anything just follow you rhyme because you walk up to me and say, well, you know I'm your leader. Okay. Well, show me you my leader. It's a little bit more than just talking. Show me that you have people walk up to you, they ain't got no they ain't got no husband. They ain't got no way. They ain't got the same thing. In other words, we need to answer to the problem of the children. Here they walking up no chills. How you gonna tell what you gonna go about? What the book say? What the white man told you? The white man around here not and wrote this article up to my the nuclear family was a mistake. Do you actually think I'm gonna keep smiling in this until somebody that's talking some food? Ain't no systemic races. You know, true enough the Democrats do talk about the truth about what's going on with us. Now they do do that, but they do it from an exploitation point. And see what the Republicans do, they say, there's no such thing as systemic racism. That's the narrative from the Democrat party. Well, that's not a narrative. That's the truth. It's just that, see how they use us. Both of them using us. Why are they talking about the Democrats? It's the only one that's using us. All of them using us because the Republican Party know they know that this is the truth. Don't let them fool you. They know that, but they want to say that they go on against it because see, they tell me the man can be a woman. See, why you gonna listen to them? Okay, just because they say that's stupid. That don't mean everything. They saying it's stupid. I examine everything they say. But I also understand that what they write about my problem, but I also understand that they are explored in my problem. And I also understand that you explored in my problem too. See, I ain't like you talking about oh, we gonna get the Republicans back. Okay, and? I'm through with it. Donald Trump just had the house descended and the president. He didn't get he said on my first day back in office. See what person tell you just an obvious lie. You know, you shouldn't even what mode they need to say to you. He said, oh, my first day, if you elect me, the first day I'm gonna get rid, I'm gonna sign off on ObamaCare. I want this manly. What he did his first day. He didn't even he said his first day as president. Well, let me tell you what he did. 7 days after he was elected. I didn't even know this because we were going through so many problems. I'm just not catching up with this stuff. 7 days after he was like, he's sitting down with less this all time high. She sang with it. LGBTQI community is afraid. They don't have to be afraid of me. That's settled law. Same sex marriage is settled law. You know. And I don't have a problem with it. Oh, yeah? So, see, I don't need to hear no more from Donald J Trump. I don't need to hear anything else from him. Maybe he needs to do something else to you. But what happened? Like, they talking about the nuclear family was a catastrophe was a catastrophe. Well, what happened to Lewis Felicia ianna Joan and Lewis junior was a catastrophe for us. He said, I don't need to in other words, I got what I'm trying to warn you of not to go through. I've been through. I don't need to go through this anymore with Donald Trump and his wife. She sitting around talking about my foster kid. Why don't you let her son go to foster care? Since she cares so much about foster care. See, she ain't gonna do that. But she God gonna see, but one of these days why she sitting at talking, trying to make fun of my situation. I think people are still trying to talk to me. You try to make fun of my situation, but guess what? It's a lot of people have tried to make fun of me. Have laughed at me and said I was crazy. I've said that, I'm brainwashed. I'm so glad that my brain's got washed. I don't know what to do. I'm so glad that I'm going again. That's the whole purpose of Jesus Christ to get your brains washed.

And you a fool to be sitting there trying to talk about it, then why you didn't get yours. Now I can talk about them. 'cause what they're right on talking about them. 'cause I'd have been down the path that educational pain. I've been down that same pad. I'm well within my right to talk about them because I know they know better.

They sis. Well, we enjoy talking to y'all. We just trying to slow it down now and wrap it up. I just wish we could just switch a call. Go from start to something else you got anything from the valve somewhere. I went through two or three battles versus ID. You want to. Well, this is like the political justice episode, so yeah, my main thing was leviticus 18 to 22. You know, a man, a man, a man, and a man just not that's just not going anywhere. Just like I was talking to my daughter the other day they got my daughter in so screwed up it don't make no sense. I said, well, can you? 'cause she was talking to her sister and was going online looking up stuff. And I told her to look up leviticus 18 and 22. And she didn't want to, you know, she know what that is. So we went through the battle. And this girl that man, everything. We just, we just were, you know, we just lost everything. And with ianna have had everything way more than Joan. But thou should not live with a man, a man should not lie with a man as he would a woman because it's an Obama nation. Okay. And that's just simple as that. She told me that means that a man, she said, that means that. She said that means that a man. She said, it means that a man is my lesson, his son. You know that. I mean, really. You know, I don't really, you know, I don't really. The conversation was you kind of didn't go good, but you know, I thought about it. And it's just, it's just, she just talking like that because she been around. She been around him all the time and they got her thinking, told what it. They sent everything to my email and my Facebook account and I wouldn't respect our people just like they just might so much. So we're going to just close out and be honest, you got anything to say. No more than hey. We really would appreciate some support, especially about getting the next presidential stuff running. Well, I'm ran arrested in people donating to this call because see I can't. I got to get to a better point than what you talking about. I wish people would donate so that we can do things like we're in the process of doing things like going to these things. Going to these schools and petitioning. A LGBT learning now, we're going to stop this. We finish to stop this show. But you don't have to donate. Don't be sitting around here looking.

"Old Testament New Testament teaching crank that is repaired to therapy because if you believe in God and you trust in God, God gonna lead you to right way. He not gonna have you in no confused state of saying you hear you a woman, you're saying you a man. Here you a man, you were saying that you were a woman. And so that's not the God, I serve. People try to say, well, there's only one God. I can't tell because the God I serve. He ain't never told me to understand nothing by transfer of no gender. Just because in other words, you say you was called by God to do something from a godly point. You gonna be explaining to your friend that, hey, your child needs to go to God. What are you doing? Are you studying the word of God with your child? That's where that's what Christianity kicks in it. Christianity is not the kind of religion where you go a long way to go a long Christianity is to counter religion where Jesus Christ said I come and I make this ciphers among you. If you were disciple for Jesus Christ and people have problems that people want you to help them through their problems, not go a long with them. I don't care. My granddad had taught me that of the early age. I don't care if people dislike you. Don't be no people pleaser Felicia. Don't be no people please. Because if you do wrong, people are not gonna like you. If you do right, they really not gonna like you. And I notice how he, the picture his voice, and it made me understand later on exactly what he's saying. He said, but guess what, Felicia? People were respect you. You'll be known wide and far above as a person that people respect, you say, you hear people now talking about JD this and JV day. People ain't had no respect for JD. When I first started at race in the civil rights movement, when I became a people didn't respect me, respect is something that is earned. And I want you to know if a person don't respect you, get away from a respect on cost of person and dime. You said respect come from. People ain't got to like you, but they are respect you. And it's a release. He telling me the truth. I'm not going to do it. But this person, this person is the same way on every corner. And that's what my granddaddy became known as he became known as the same band on every corner. He went no different. He didn't know no big ass and no love you. If you was an in law to him, if you was his son in law, you was his son. If you was his daughter in law, you was his daughter. If you was his grandson in law, he was his grin son. You was his grandson. He then believe in the in law. My granddad is spoke and talked about it. I don't believe in in law. I believe that you are my son. You are my daughter. You are my grandson. You married to somebody that's a part of me. Then you a part of me. And that's the way we have. And look how the government has just been crawled all over into our business. Got children, got programs, the alienate children from their parents. My daughter turned 18 about a year and a half ago and they was talking way back. I didn't even think that she would be there. To my two zero 18, the way we was fighting, but what wasn't I in for a surprise? We didn't even think that. And they kept saying, well, when she turned 18, everything when she turned 18, they really started hiding out. And this is a shame before God, these people got ever count on and more reprogrammed. You can think of, they got programs that are alienating children from their parents. But you know? One day, and it ain't gonna be long. And I know we've been saying this for the last, however long you've been knowing Felicia, but it won't, it ain't gonna be long now. One day, you gonna have to set up all this stuff you doing? All these things you talking about? All this defilement of God's word and God's people, you gonna have to settle up one day and it ain't gonna be long and it's not gonna be pretty. God sent on that great and dreadful day. They gonna drop their weapons and run. They gonna run for their Visa the fastest runner won't be able to outrun me. We get old grown, you know, children already have a problem. I remember when I was a child, I was going through different growing pain. You know why these children messed up now? You got adults. That are prolonging this. They are manipulating this through government funding. They are being, they have taken, you got grown people. Taking part in this stuff. See, hurt people hurt people. You got people. I would believe that the people that's involved with my daughter probably don't have a mother and a father. Hurt people hurt people. Jealous because she got a mother and a father, since then the brother and they seem to be decent successful people. Because I know I don't worry about how to the standards of the world, but I know that I'm accomplished when it comes to God. I know that God commissioned me to do what I'm doing right here right now at this time. I know it's not a coincidence that my daughter is not in the home. But God could not do what he getting ready to do if he didn't do it that way. And when I was when we first started going through this stuff with our daughter, you know, God was some way in my mind making me think, well, it won't be long. And that was 5 or 6 years ago and so one day about a year ago, I told I was talking to God, I said God. Why didn't you tell me that this was going to be this long? You said because I know you. I know you. I know what to tell you when I need to tell you. And it's still not going to be long. But I couldn't tell you how long this was going to be. Because you weren't you. I was your mind. I was your mind going to deal with that. And that was the same thing with the children of Israel. They could not understand why they couldn't take the shortcut that day. And God said because if I had let you take the shortcut, you were.

Now how can you civilizations around the world? We need that example that there's more men than women. And if a man could be a woman, now would not be the appropriate civilized, the appropriate time to be one. Because women are out. God allowed that to happen for a very divine purpose since most of these American people have a thing thinking that God is not the of all things. We are raised in ourselves that all we want is respect for what we do. You know, that's what God, and that's a part of God. God demands that we die in order to go to heaven.

And we can look at it like this is powerful like it's not true, but we are living in all time. Well, we have a program on it now, network and actually that you tune in over there because what we talked about today was a nation indicates, but a few minutes ago, you just said something to me and you said that. You would suggesting that wild Felicia everybody should know what you were talking about. I guess my. Response to that would be that that's what I used to think. I used to think that like when you used to try to tell me, most of you have to tell you that I used to think that people should know certain things. But see, I'm convinced every day more and more that people really don't know what you think they know. If a person can sit up and say that a man can be a woman. Now, we got this black lady. She's our new Supreme Court Justice, and remember when they was doing hearing. What I found fascinating about the hearing was when they asked her to define what a woman was. And she didn't even define. She couldn't even define what a woman was. She a woman. Is she a black woman? She can't even define what a woman is. And it ain't that she can't define. She just don't want to upset, you know, her counterparts that are saying that me, it can be women. And she know a man can't be a woman. A person don't go that far in school. And that's one thing. See, you look at them. You all may look at them and think that well, they don't know no better. Well, they don't know no better, but you got to understand. It's different degrees of knowledge. Okay, they don't know Nobel, like you say in the overall sense but see. One thing they know that they know is a God. They know that he real. They know that they are wrong. They know that it's a that there's a devil. God said, in his word, in Rome was. The first chapter, I think it's around there. 18th and 19th first, he said, they knew that they were doing wrong. Yeah, you know, they continued to do wrong anyway. In other words, you think these people don't know. You just got to get into understanding the degree of their knowledge because they smarter than you think. Look at all this bullshit that they've been pimpled up with. I mean, they just talking more, like middle just saying. I think the term he used was they put people in these positions in order to extend this, this foolish agenda. You know, anything that's wrong then we gonna, in other words, we gonna put pigs on the lips. We gonna put lipstick on the pig. We don't care how low down you guys say, not to do it. We gonna make the people understand why they should do it. And that's what I'm trying to tell you. It takes a, it takes a lot of. What you call educational school knowledge, to be able to come up with the stuff that they come up with. You can sit there and laugh and cackle with them. That lady crazy, she don't know what a woman is, oh, she knows what a woman is. If you think she got a juris doctor degree 'cause she can't retain knowledge or she's so stupid. You just gotta know what kind of stupid she is. That stupid to sit up and play with God. Now that's what she gonna find out about through her own children. But far as you setting up thinking that this lady, she's so weak and timid and she don't, and she did and she did. I'm trying to tell you, she's more than you think she is. And read day background. Read their educational background and sit down and ask yourself, can a person go this far? And then you got other people. They said, well, I know they are what you call educated fools. Okay. That's true. But listen to what you're saying. This is an educated food. This ain't just a wine food. This ain't a pan handling food. It ain't talking against no paying handler. I'm just trying to explain something to you. This is not no wild Irish rose drinking food. This is an educated food. And that's the worst California food. To be dealing with, because see, you.
"felicia" Discussed on A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
"Is doctor Felicia keesing a Professor of biology at Bard college in annandale and Hudson, New York, and one of the two directors of the tick project with doctor Rick ostfeld of carry institute of ecosystem studies in millbrook, New York, welcome Felicia and thank you so much for making time to talk about this important subject today. Thank you for inviting me. It's a pleasure to be here. Yeah, I feel like before we get started, I always like to know how people got into what they do. And I just want to ask you, how did you, why did you, when did you get involved with ticks? Are there other animals or arthropods that have been your main focus or how did added this happen for you? Yeah, that's a great question. And we'll be revealing answer, I think. I actually did my PhD work on large mammals in African Savannah. So I worked in Kenya studying how the absence of elephants and giraffes and buffaloes and things affect Savannah communities. It was a sort of conservation related project. And so it might seem a very big jump from there to ticks. But actually in that same period of time, I met another scientist named Rick ostfeld, the very same Rick spells. He just mentioned, and he worked on ticks. And so at the same time, we were actually getting married. I started working on text two. So I like to say that I'm married into ticks. And it turned out that there were a lot of ticks in Kenya and Savannah's too. And so my work there moved into some of the same sort of disease oriented directions as I was beginning work here in the northeast on tick related questions. So marrying into ticks is that tick humor is that I say I'm not sure anyone else can say that actually. I was going to say, well, so let's quickly first just sort of set the stage, explain the extent of the tick problem..

The mother was getting government assistance, you know, these children needed protection, their mother had a problem. These children needed protection. And nobody was there to protect them. You know why? 'cause they got crosstown. Stalking my family. On government funds, stalking my family, trying to figure out how well the black and black families have nuclear holes. We're going on. They hit cheer and guess how long the chairman was in the freezer. Three years. Three years. And that's seems to be the problem in America. America always got the people here. It's not America per se. It's not the world per se. It's the people in the world. You know, see when people don't have to create nothing. They don't have to have to make nothing. They are always trying to break something. So that's what CPS is. Seek child protection services. They are an organization, they're not. You know the word. Cheering industry with pamphlets on that superfast. CPS ride pass them and come to my house and sit across the street and watch and watch us while the tree in the middle where the people that really need help, they can't get no help. We've been talking about this 5, 6 years. And I've been telling people, you know, you can ignore me all you want to. You should over there. And you can look up and you can look at me, you can look at me until your eyes pop out your head. But guess what? Guess what? One day, the same thing gonna come knock at your door in a different mask. The same thing will come visit you. Yes, CPS might not be easy to choose. What's something else worse than my guess that you? Look at what this stuff going on in the mirror. Look what's happened to a children. 19 children. 19 children. And we get people talking about there's no systemic racism. Law & Order. 100. Good. And to tell me, I don't know how true this is. 'cause I don't like the spread. Fake news. But the last I heard, the police officers were sitting outside. For a whole hour trying to strategize on what they gonna do and the guy that shooting the cheering up. And what we got politicians, Donald J Trump, walking the streets. Trying to be smart because miss mister Floyd. Why can the street, you know, systemic racism? Then he got the attorney general. Barr to say, ain't no systemic racism. Now he had talking about they stole the election from him. Did they read the election? That's what we've been telling you. They rigged in this criminal justice. As a matter of fact, the criminal justice system is what you say read see, it's built in. This stuff is almost like when you want to warm up on, you know, has been a woman automatically just grow hair. That's how the system is here. You know, he said, I want to make. Oh, you African American black. Okay, well, you know, I don't care. I don't care if you got a bathroom degree, I don't care if you got a master's degree, I don't care if you've got a PhD.

You have added on to the legacy that these people left, you both can. You supposed to be a lot better. What's better? Okay, the white man used to be sitting around in the courtroom. Persecuting us. Now we got black people sitting there doing it. They just didn't take they can change hands. And this is what you celebrate now to area the bridge across the jubilee. You celebrate the persecution of Lewis and Felicia knew and I'm a descendant of who one of the people that brought about that helped bring about the change. My grandfather you know, I'm his granddaughter and I ain't just a descendant. I stayed in his home. He raised me. I know God, because of him. Because I had to go to Sunday school. I had to go to church. He had already your program. He just, he was just, he was just people getting around, I want that violent Christian. I'm a diver Christian. I don't know nobody as a devout as my grandfather. That was a devout man. He held it by more until he couldn't hold it no more. And he used to say, and I should tell him I said granddaddy. Why are you going to church? He goes to three and four churches, 5 trips a day. He said, Felicia, I'm gonna go till I can't go no more. And my granddaddy got sick a year before he died and trust me. He held at work. He went to he couldn't go no more. And if I ever met a devout Christian, he was one. I don't know what all these other people. I'm a devout Christian. Well, you know, we went to trains. I don't know what kind of devout Christian you are. But I had them. I thank God for me, my husband. Mister Lewis, I thank God for bringing him into my life. Because. I don't know how I could have came true see my grandfather. He and my grandmother, they created this skeleton.

Usually they don't really know should they think they know they have no clue right or you know those talk out. Loud bosses process out loud which is just them not wanting to make a decision because again the most likely they're all operating out of fear and so the way you manage that is you. Listen you pay attention. You say yes sure And then you go do what you know you need to do. Also you schedule skipped meetings with your boss's boss so you make sure you understand what the real priorities of business are so your boss can be indecisive ending you can make decisions and then yay you make both of you guys look good so you've circumvented that person.

I get to see your amazing rose farm. And i've wanted to come visit for a long time. Well i it is really special to have you here and i'm glad that you were able to on your trip. You know you don't always get get this far down south so It it's nice to have people back in person again to absolutely well We have lots of talk about Felicia as i said owns menagerie farm. Flower we're going to talk about what her hogue business. Operation is and then a little bit about her path and how she fell into flowers out specifically roses and a little bit about. What's coming next so Some of you may remember a couple years ago. I did a fifty states of slow flowers. Series fifty one person from each state for fifty weeks ahead and get that at. I did highlight felicia during california. She had to represent the whole state. That was a mouthful. And yes i was here for the whole state but it was only about ten minutes so it was just a quick little soundbite and so it wasn't. She deserved more. So we're gonna talk about this so fully. Shut a menagerie pharma flower. You're based in sacramento valley. Put us put yourself on the map and kind of introduce people to what what is your whole enterprise. So yes i'm based in sacramento valley. I am about an hour north of sacramento and an hour south of chico. I'm right at the base of the center beauts Which is the smallest mountain range in the world for you trivia folks out there the good little jeopardy piece at my college roommate's still to this day always says that you know she's always going to take that one away cases on jeopardy. It's funny yes. So i operate about one hundred acre farm i have twenty acres of that are not contiguous. That are actually from where we are right here on this particular property. It's about twenty minutes away which is pointed into a rice as specifically sushi rice so people that Eat sushi rice. You might be having some of mine here in my gosh i and then i also have eighty acres years. The property we are. We're on and i have seventy two planted french prunes That i grow for sweet growers. Which is the largest prune growing co-op in the country My family's grown prunes has prince for a long time we used to have a commercial to hydrate or which is actually as diverse deteriorate over to our left the remnants of the old dryer. We no longer commercially drive. And then i have A small nursery here on the property now or specialized in garden roses Do sell potted plants April through really november kind of in season. And then i sell beirut plants the rest of the year that we operate here out of the nursery. And then i also have cut flowers And i have about. I think but never was asked me about how many plants and i kind of lost track but Around the five thousand mark of plants that are garden roses that are planted in for cut flowers. And then i have A barn here That we do workshops in events An educational opportunities for people that want to learn how to grow garden roses and also just other plants I also do grow some some tulips in the spring time but they kind of just Get customers excited for the roses. And plus i just like to have something blooming year in the spring So i have just kind of a nice garden area. Now that The grounds here on the property and that people can kind of explorer at different times of the year and really see this seasonal changes with the roses and with other plants. You're in the valley. Yeah wow so much going on. the The tulips i feel like that's a bonus because you also do mail order. You already do mail order for euros products so you're set up to ship. So how are the. Are you shipping up so we. We do ship tulips in the spring and again depending on the year. I tried to tie them as much as i try to time. I'm i do outdoor grow. So as much as i do. Try to time. The forcing and whatnot We usually have tulips around early march. And then we can shift Through me with different varieties you know early and late late blooming varieties but yeah. I do ship those across the country and they do ship amazingly well. Tulips are great Right flower They hold up really well. I love what you said about having something to offer your customers. Because as you've built the business you have a mailing lists and so people are waiting for news of what's coming next so so for cut. Flowers are season for garden. Roses really ends. I say you know halloween and most years. We can squeak through till thanksgiving kind of like the final date for us really depending on the rain and if we have a really wet know kind of late fall or not really. There's that november through april when the garden roses. Start again that You know. I i don't have roses and i don't grow. We are so warm here in the summer in the sacramento valley. That i don't have greenhouses. Because i would really only use them about a month and a half of the year. My gosh and then it gets warm enough to do out- outdoor growing so. I really just focus on the tulips. And then i always have a cutting garden here too. I think like most most farmers. I i like to grow other things and so we have a little Family cutting garden. We're all grow you know some donkey lists than some of those other beautiful spring flowers as well But i don't usually sell those just more for yourself for fun but yeah. The tulips are what we folks focused on in the spring. So okay. so you're you're tulips are kind of. I don't know. I didn't mean to spend so much time on those. They're beautiful. I remember you brought some to the workshop that we had general story. I forgot about that they were. They were stunning. But who is your customer. Felicia that kind of help. Maybe help people understand the scope of your business so my customer actually really is almost kind of like i would think kind of like two different people's no i have a lot of customers like for cut flowers. That are wholesale that our wedding and event designers. And that's really where i started like. That was kind of my bread and butter is. I had all the beautiful garden. Roses and all of the colors and varieties. that people wanted for their weddings and I started in wholesale and then and you were shipping like ice packed. yes and then also local pick up and then. I also have a local wholesaler. Here that you know works with me as well so And a delivery route into the sacramento area so it wasn't wasn't just all shipping So i kinda started doing that. And then when the penny started last year as kind of like anyone in the businesses march came in we had all these orders for tulips and then the roses were right around the corner on their heels getting ready for their first flush and you know the world sort of shut down. All the wedding and events were kansas side. All these beautiful flowers. While i'm set up to ship and everybody was in their homes not leaving and wanting to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and all kinds of things and they weren't leaving their house and flowers weren't moving everywhere and since we were agricultural Considered an essential service. Because i also grow food so right my employees and we were all still operating.

Happy anniversary, Animal Crossing!
"This day one year ago. The nintendo switch game animal. Crossing new horizons launched when we were all hunkered down at home trying to keep ourselves and family safe amid the pandemic we had this digital island oasis where we could fish build plante and simply enjoy our surroundings without worry joining us now to talk about. The anniversary of animal crossing is first time. Guest felicia wellington rebel and engagement editor with usa. Today who has written a very delightful piece exploring nine other cozy nintendo switch games for fans of new horizons felicia. Thanks so much for being here. It's great to have you. Thank you for having me so when i play new horizons. I didn't really know a lot about animal crossing. I knew bits here. And there. But i really didn't play much before this. How familiar were you with animal. Crossing before you started new horizons. I guess i'm not so different. I mean i was pretty familiar. Played new leaf that was for three d. s. Forget when that came out maybe like twenty eleven twelve and pocket camp. I was really can't probably because it was on ios. And i get engaged with it a little bit more often than like up either held or you know a conflict playing a console game and i knew it existed before that and i'd heard amazing things and the characters are in other games but i think this is the first time even outside of pocket camp that i just really like all the things. Let's all things here. I you know the thing that that struck me. When i was first playing new horizons last year was just it felt so peaceful and it felt nice to just concentrate on really simple things like i need to find another type of fruit to grow in my island or oh i need to build a new room in my house or oh and need to find something i need to build this or find this fish and it just felt so simple and compared with what we were dealing with in real life it was just so nice to get away What did you enjoy. Most about playing new horizons. Definitely all of those things. I think it the game releasing at the same time that everything shut down and i'm in a state that was one of the first Completely shut down New jersey and so it really was just. It was like a place to visit. It was a social outlet Because you can buy friends to your island etcetera but you're also just interacting there were all these new interactions in the game that yeah going on a year. You're just like you already said that twice today. My island villager. But in the beginning it was all very brand new. You're still inviting people. The goals were still fresh. It was kind of. Like what do i want my island to look like and i just couldn't get enough and i still enjoy a lot of those same things as the new releases. Come out. I really do like i know that. Not everyone is pleased with some of their choices but the very fact that it's just constant new materials over the span of not just this past year but i think they've got stuff plan for the next couple of years. I think that's amazing. And i know it's not too different from previous games. I'll take a very much been a thing to look forward to In a world where we don't have a whole lot of things we can go out and experience and so being able to go into this digital world and really look forward to some of those goals are really kind of grind away at something. Adorable has been been a lot of fun. Yeah that was one thing i love to is meeting the neighbors you know and be able to socially interact with people because it's hard when you're guaranteed you can't really see anybody in person and that was like a nice little kind of weird thing where you know you just got to meet your neighbors and hang out and talk and stuff and it was such a simple thing but it was just really great to yeah. I absolutely love it. I know that some of the same functionality and previous games where like you could find out like their favorite drink and music is isn't quite in this game yet but in the beginning i didn't care it was just like who's moving to my island because you know some of those first ones you don't have a choice And then you're traveling from ireland. Define the person that you want or even just like looking up who you might wanna. Is this person still in the game. Who were the new characters. I don't know there was just a lot of i. I'm gonna call it collection. Finding you know where it's just like. Ooh all these new opportunities. What are what are the possibilities. Which ones do i want with my aesthetic. I don't know there's a lot of fun in that almost like childlike wonder. That's there yeah absolutely. So let's talk about your piece. You mentioned nine switch games. The player should consider if they love animal crossing if we had narrowed down to three. Which would you choose bellboy. Fine giving getting to nine okay fair. There were a lot of games on there. And they're all kind of open world. So i can see why you might just want some top choices. So let's see well. Ledge legends zelda is like a forever recommendation. So i'll pick three others. That one counts though. It's like your bonus always recommended any game in that franchise that whole series So well last campfire. I think is one of my favorite games on the list. No no no offense to all the others are all great but there is something about that game. It's a little haunting but Not in a bad way but oh kind of like. Wow like a very emotional game but i just i'm so drawn to it. I really enjoyed playing it. The puzzles I don't know everything about that. Game just really drew me in and another emotional one was Spirit fair. I think that when a lot of people recommend mount one it was really good. I'm happy check that one out. At first i was like. I'm gonna cry when i play that i'm good. I've done enough crying. But it really is just a great game and i'm really. I'm really thrilled. That i tried that one. I almost passed on it. And then i should say star valley which is great. But i'm gonna say little would as the third choice and here's why you can't really go wrong with you either one. They're pretty similar like very similar and they're probably both the most similar to animal crossing. But when i pick up the switch i tend to feel drawn to littlewood a little bit more. Sorry starting valley. I just i just open it way. More than i do start started valley little would so that will be the recommendation simply because at that because ultimately when i pick it up what do i go to play the most. If that's it then that's one. I should recommend okay. I'm going to have to try little would on the switch at. It's like super indy. I think it was just one guy who i think. He had a kickstarter for it and finally got it published. And i don't know. I really i really like it

How To Create Blank Space In Your Life by Felicia Renee
"How degree blank space in your life by Felicia, Rene of the Felicia Rene Dot Com. Daddy of creating space for what's important in my life has been my main focus lately, I really want this to be the time where I'm super intentional about where my time is concentrated and spent. So I thought discussing how to create blank space would be the perfect way to start off. Minimal. Mondays. Blank space to me are the little moments in pockets of time that you have in use them to do what's important to you because being busy isn't always a good thing. Sometimes, you just need to take it easy and focus on resting reading or doing a hobby that you enjoy. Blank space is all about paying attention to the little moments in joys in life. How to create blank space in your life, allow yourself to take breaks. Star, prioritizing the time in your life for what you want to do I'm working on creating even more balance in my life with my day job this blog hobbies exercise and resting it takes a lot of time. But as I am prioritizing at all, it's allowing me to input breaks for myself. I cannot stress how important breaks are for your mind body and soul is important to let yourself. And rejuvenate. Taken a few blogging breaks and breaks from all media. You need to get away and focus on what's important. You can't be everything everyone all the time because you stress yourself out and burn out how will be good for anyone. So don't push yourself too far. Instead take a break whether it's a ten minute break that your job gives you and you never take it or it's a fifteen minute walk on your lunch break without looking at your phone. Being stressed and overwhelmed is in good for anyone and I've learned that I'm the type of person that needs rest and take care of myself. So learn to take care of you too. So you can be the healthiest of yourself. Learned to say. No. You can't stretch yourself thin and be everything to everybody. So learn a stand up for yourself and say, no, if you don't want to do something because you just don't feel like it say no. I remember going through a period in my life when I was a people pleaser Al's miserable once I realized that I didn't have to continue being this way and I started saying no to things I didn't want to do and yes to the things I did a made a big difference. Myself as sounds sometimes you gotta put yourself I. I don't even think saying, no is selfish. You can't do it all. So take it from me because I learned that the hard way. Give yourself grace. Mice hard sometimes in too many times we make ourselves feel bad about everything we do is why giving myself grace has become a big aspect of my life. I'm the type of person as extremely hard on myself. I even wrote a post on letting go of control, which is still a struggle at times. We. All worked so hard and giving yourself time to Binge Watch a TV show or sleep an hour later on the weekend is okay. is taking me a while to feel like this I'd be myself up over the little things like I didn't exercise for exactly sixty minutes instead did fifty five minutes I mean who cares the point is that I actually took time out to go to the gym which if you know me a hate exercising. So just give yourself grace and be kinder to yourself. That is what is most important. Make time for your hobbies. My Love Hobbies, I didn't realize. I'm born they were to me until this summer especially since I started running this blog more like a business. So I got back into adult coloring books and creative ways to shoot images. I love photography, but I dismissed it for awhile. Now, I'm into it even more and I'm looking at investing in an even bigger DSL. Our hobbies are a great way to get out of your head and do something purely for enjoyment and start finding that blank space in your life he able to prioritize your hobbies more. Practice minimalism. I mean, need I say more? Practicing minimalism allows you time to focus on what you find valuable and like over the rest. When he simplify your life, you're able to prioritize your time in a way that is perfect for you. You can rest more on weekends and take part in hobbies you enjoy instead of doing something you don't care about. minimalism has shown me that I need to give myself grace. When I need a break is maybe look at everything differently in slowdown because sometimes less really is more.

How People Are Scraping By After Expiration Of Federal Unemployment Aid
"During most of this pandemic, a lot of unemployed Americans got some extra unemployment benefits from the federal government. Ah, flat $600 every week that funding expired at the end of July. Congress hasn't renewed it so millions of people are scraping by with a lot less. In some places. The state unemployment benefit is just $250 a week. Emily Quill worked at a hotel in Oregon before the pandemic. When we talked to her in July, she worried she might lose her housing this week. We called to check in. Well, actually, there have been some big changes. Um After the extra $600 ran out and may savings was gone and those staring down the barrel of rent Dio I decided to break my lease on DH. Move out of state back in with my parents, Gwil worried about racking up debt. I had Great career. I had friends. I had a life there and know they just gave away everything I own so that I could move back in with my parents and still Looking for a job and getting nothing in response. I'm not really sure what the future holds in Arizona. Alicia Gonzalez told us in July that she was struggling even with that, $600. A boyfriend had to ration his medicine. I thought things couldn't get worse. It's just it's gotten bad Within that little bit of time in August, there was a moment when things were looking up. Alicia got a job at Walmart managing how many customers come in and enforcing mask rules that whole day like I was thinking, like, okay, I got this job. Everything's gonna be peaky. Everything's going. You know, we're going to be okay. But then I thought, like, you know, some people are crazy. It's really like a close and personal like people, conveniently, you know, like No, I don't. I don't feel safe enough. Felicia decided she couldn't put her family at risk like that and turn the job down. She's going to keep looking in August President Trump's side in order to divert money from FEMA to boost unemployment benefits. That's $300 a week instead of six.

Rose McGowan Claims Alyssa Milano Made the Charmed Set Toxic AF
"There's is daily top. We have so many feuds to talk about today starting with rose McGowan claim that a listen the Llano. made the charm set toxic A. Okay this whole thing started as a political view, but then it got very personal rose accused of throwing fits in front of the crew on the set of charmed rose even says she cried every ten shows renewed because a listen made the set. So toxic in a statement to news listen. Milano said hurt people hurt people commenting any further doesn't align with my wellness plan we have not yet heard back from rose or or Warner, brothers, which produced charm. So a lot to unpack here. Again, it started off very political was a Democrat argument but then rose went there why he thinks she went there to bring charm to behavior. Look, hold. One hundred percent and if we're fighting and I'm holding a grudge against somebody I'm pulling out every receipt I don't care it. One Thousand Nine, hundred, ninety, nine, hundred. This is an audit. We're going to have this fight whether you like it or not. I guess that's true and also she's trying to discredit a list right? That's her way of saying like you shouldn't. You can listen to. Elissa because she's not as relatable as you think because listen to this she may two hundred thousand dollars a week on charm and was still throwing right she didn't get paid enough. It's like a way to discredit. I don't know. That is also. To your argument, sometimes, people will buy into that and be like absolutely. You know what? She's right rose you. If she's FELICIA's really as bad as you say that I'm listed work she says, but then other people can see right through that to say like obviously you have a grudge obviously, you don't like her you've made that very clear. You said it in an interview you do not like or. Do we really trust your opinion because it's obviously very biased. I just feel like this has become somewhat sticky with rose like we can just expect her to just go off and sort of sale of these things and quite frankly does anybody really care twenty years later if the listen. Milano through set like threw a fit onset of charms like I just don't think that's relevant to the conversation like none of us were there. None of us really really cared that much about how she behaved obviously, you want to be respectful to the crew and people that work really hard. To put on a production as we all know but we've all had bad days on this show I just feel like if in fifteen years, one of us were to be like well, she was impossible to deal with. It's like, okay. Then you should have said something then I feel like it's just so kind of in line with WHO rose is trying to be now and I'm not saying that she likes her and I'm not saying that she feels like she's credible or that she believes in anything she says. Every time someone says something that has nothing to do with you. That doesn't mean you need to go and jump in on it. And I, I hate to say this because I'm not away from everybody's experiences and I always say this you gotTa pick struggle and you've got to stick with that struggle and pick up a fight and fight as hard as you can. If you're fighting in the me too movement because it happened to you I totally get it. You're also writing because somebody was in a toxic work environment made something toxic fighting another break, and then what's next if something else comes up and you're fighting about that as well take you just take it away and makes it seem like you're only saying those things because. Of the week, right right and it's also like she made two, hundred, fifty, thousand dollars a week like made that much money. It was a hit show like I don't I also don't see how that's relevant. You know what I mean like you don't need to also bring up how much somebody made I. Don't think that that's her pleasure bill, but I will say. It rose McGowan felt leg she made. made the workplace toxic that are that's her feelings. That's her way of engaging and listened with tolerance to her. She don't have to do it over the air. She can do on the phone and just throw rose a my dad if I if you thought that way and I did that to you but I, don't think. Anymore. I don't think. I'm. Giving that apology I'm sorry I. Think we know a lot of different people not everybody has a good day I. Think People think just because you're on television or you're part of ensemble cast like your life is so easy. It's a lot of hard work that goes into this. So maybe she maybe she had a bad week or month or whatever. But there's a lot of people that we've experienced that can be toxic or disruptive or difficult to deal with. But that's just sort of this part of this dysfunctional family you keep that within yourself. You don't need to go and spread around and the and the truth is like the whole point rose trying to make was was again a political argument and so politics you know just keep arguing your facts and I think that's a fair argument to have. We argue politics stop in this country. So if you want to argue that with Eliza and you guys want to go back and forth about what who vote for do that. But I say again as you guys said, keep the history out of it because honestly just makes your arguments. Lesson weaker. We aren't just there's no right word. Thank point.

Did it felt out of place and then also you know what I did have like my outside of Africa is like my other friends in other fronts in general that are Americans that I must like. There's a lot of cultural like things that I didn't understand until much. Later a lot of just you know, for TV shows that music to the food like a lot of things I wasn't exposed to unless I saw that on my own centuries by friends who introduced me to that because my parents did though it was weird at times for more so I guess when I went to Oregon. Last. A little different. You know like 'cause I joined like what is what I could tell this later Fast forward into like when I actually dmed Undergrad University of Oregon a PWI and I was part of be issue in Asa African Student Association club. But like a lot of the BS you is like I didn't know about the movie, Friday. I didn't know about all these different staples that I I should have. No you know just different cultural things like that I also later. Caught. Up On between then I was. Doing. Good realized. Parts of you know American culture black culture. You know like that was missing out on because of my up gate. So. This is by Felicia you go. To. You find that now considering what you do that otherness is sort of an advantage. Actually I think. So because you know for me, I find that I can adapt to any community I've lived in Kansas I loved Oregon. In Arkansas I lifted a Virginia. The DMV area. Being exposed to all those places? Right. There are different communities now Brooklyn, which is huge right and so for me, I, feel like I could really be able to like talk to anyone and everyone and with the community that I'm building black people are not a monolith right? So all of them are so different in their own way a lot of them have different UPBRINGINGS and perspectives. The next person right next to them don't have. So for me, I'm learning from them. Think they're learning from each other. You know it's still early but I see that I see how we're also different. We're all tied to like similar experience.
