These GOP Primary Numbers Are Not Favorable...
"Worth watching. And it's But the hard reality is this primary, the numbers right now are not favorable. And they're not favorable because Karl as Rove, who would love him or hate him, wrote the Wall Street Journal this week, you know, Rove has an interest in not getting Trump elected. Rove doesn't like Trump. He just doesn't. It's obvious. I read his stuff in The Wall Street Journal because I want to see what everybody's saying, not just people I agree with. And Rove brought up the point that I I think think it was Rove, but they got to get to Amano Amano. There's got to be like a one on one. If any of these men or women, Nikki Haley, Vivek or DeSantis, who are really the only three contenders seriously left, if any of them are to have a chance, they got to get to a one on one. And there's no reason for any of them to drop out. Folks, put yourself in their shoes. The donor wants one guy or woman. And they think that in a one on one, they've got a shot against Trump. I don't agree. I think Trump right now is kind of running away with it to the point where pluralities and majorities are going to be there in pretty much every state. However, I don't think primaries are a bad thing. And I think a one on one, obviously, math pure would give that person or man a better shot. No diggity, no doubt. The problem is, put yourself in their shoes. If you're Nikki Haley, why are you going to drop out? You're currently running number two in New Hampshire. If you're Nikki Haley, you're in the back room in a smoke filled room with a bunch of donors going, screw that, let that guy drop out, DeSantis. But if you're DeSantis, you're looking at the Haley donors going, well, why would I drop out? I'm number two in Iowa. Right? Well, why not Vivek? Folks, Vivek is worth 100 plus million dollars. Vivek's probably like, you know what? This is an investment in my future. I like politics. I like the Republican brand. I could run again in the future. Why the hell would I drop out? I can finance You gotta remember, man, the
Fresh "First Woman" from Morning News with Manda Factor and Gregg Hersholt
"Just as jubilantly, because if you ask a resident of the Palestinian territories, they consider some of these people captives in their own right. ABC's Inez de la Quaterra has been covering this in the West Bank, which is of course the larger Palestinian territory on the other side Israel of from Gaza. Inez, who are these people and what has been the reaction to their return? So Brad, these Palestinian prisoners, what they've agreed to is to release female prisoners and minors under the people have been treated just as 15 minors. We've been going to Ramallah to witness the release of these prisoners and it's a huge celebration there. So we've been seeing crowds gathering, people carrying flags chanting and and even setting off fireworks. And at one point while we were there, the crowd kind of rushed towards the bus, swarmed the bus as the Palestinian prisoners were coming off the bus and people were being greeted like heroes. While we were there, we spoke to one woman who was one of the prisoners' moms and she was waiting for her daughter to come off the bus. And while we were waiting, I asked her about her daughter. saying She was she was very excited to see her again and I asked her, what was your daughter arrested for? I don't know. I don't know. I don't know really. And she says she doesn't know because they never told her, they never told her, they never told her daughter. And that is, I think, the crux of the issue here. As we're seeing more and more Palestinian prisoners being released, there's also been a renewed focus on the issue of Palestinian incarceration and the lack of due process in the West Bank. Yeah, that's interesting because when we say prisoner, that can mean a lot of things and it can evoke a lot of images for people. What does it take to end up in Israeli custody if we're talking about women and children, essentially? So, depending on where you live, different rules apply. So, if you're in East Jerusalem, you go to civil court. If you are living in the West Bank and you're a Palestinian, you go to military court. And then there are all sorts of issues that arise with that, at least according to human rights groups we've been speaking with. Palestinian children are subject to a draconian military justice system where the judges are actually military officials. The conviction rates are 99 .7%. We spoke to Sari Bashi, who is the program director for Human Rights Watch in Ramallah, in the West Bank. And she's actually Israeli, Brad. She was talking about the lack of due process protection for Palestinians in the West Bank. The detention is not based on past bad actions that are alleged. It's based on secret allegations of future dangerousness. And that evidence is not presented to the person accused of being dangerous nor to their lawyer. So they were talking about how some Palestinians are detained for so -called security crimes and there's very little when specificity it comes to what does that mean, a security crime. I don't think that anybody can claim no claim that locking up large numbers of children for long periods of time is either just or for. Same goes for supporting terrorism that, you know, on its face sounds like something very serious. But human rights groups who've been speaking with tell us that can mean anything from carrying a Palestinian flag to maybe just being in the wrong place at the wrong time and that there's no real evidence for supporting terrorism. In some cases, Brad, people are not even told what their charges are. Their charges are never formally speaking with Brad and they're not even told what their charges are. Quite positive, but the overall picture a little more nuanced. The Nasdaq lost about a quarter percent today but it was a bit of a rebound from the earlier losses. The S &P 500 closing positive today up 17 points but that Dow Jones Industrial Average leading the way up 520 points almost one and a half percent. With more money money news here's Jim Chesco.

Capstone's Jared Asch Welcomes Loella Haskew and Cindy Darling of Walnut Creek
"Jared Esch, the host of The Capstone Conversation. Today, we are joined by not one, but two awesome women from the city of Walnut Creek. And we are going to hear about what inspired them to run for city council. What are some things that they want to encourage in other candidates who are considering to run or not to run as you make the decision ahead of next year's elections? And that applies to people throughout the whole East Bay area. That's not just here in Walnut Creek. So hopefully their message will resonate with people throughout. So first thing we will do, Mayor Pro Tem Luella Haskiw, do you want to go ahead and tell us a little bit more about yourself? In my career, I was a CPA specializing in tax, but I also did family law consulting and other business consulting. And I was inspired to run for a couple of reasons, one of which is I was close to many of the people who were on council and I just absorbed a lot of what they could accomplish by talking to them and watching them work. But also, I believe that we were going into an interesting economic cycle and maybe somebody who had my experience would be a good addition to the council. And our next guest is Councilwoman Cindy Darling. Cindy, tell us a little bit about your background and what convinced you to run. Well, I'm one of the newest members of the council. I was elected in 2020. Before that, I'd served 10 years on the planning commission for Walnut Creek. So I'd seen a lot of the issues that were working in the development end of things kind of bubbling up that were going to council. And I was interested in having a bigger voice on those than you just have a planning commission. I'm also a small business owner here in the city, and I spent most of my career working on really tough, naughty environmental problems around the Delta endangered species. And I felt like I developed a lot of skills there in helping people work together and solve problems creatively. And I wanted to take those skills and bring them to the council and help move Walnut Creek in a great direction. That's great. I appreciate that. Luella, you've been mayor two times, including 2020 during the start of the pandemic. Pandemic issues, businesses shutting down and then lots of looting here in Walnut Creek. What was it like to be mayor during that time? Can I say that the first round was was sweet. I really enjoyed the first time when it wasn't quite so stressful. But I will say about 2020, whenever I've talked to anybody who have had been mayor in Walnut Creek the last year to have been assigned a job with mayor, there were so many issues. We had a police shooting that was under scrutiny. We had looting. And I'm not even sure anybody knows to this hour what triggered the big looting that was at Broadway Plaza. It could have just been the gangs that were beginning to form and take over other places. But we forgot about Walnut Creek has some really nice high end stores to do. And then they all came. I don't think it had anything to do with the political choice. Nevertheless, it was incredibly damaging to the people who were at Broadway Plaza and it didn't stop there. Other people were involved in it. I make a joke about the fact that when George Floyd had been killed and people were really involved in making protests, a whole group of people showed up at nine o 'clock at night on a Wednesday and had a riot in our front yard doing a significant amount of damage to our garage doors, burning flags, scaring the bejeebers out of our neighbors. The police did call us and say, get out of the house. So we were safe, but it was an ugly experience for the neighborhood trying to find the best of the worst. We did have to buy a new garage door and we now have a battery pack up. And then I made it onto the news the next day. So good spads, but it was tough and the fiscal issues were tough. We started out with anticipating a comfortable excess budget. It turned out that when everything had to close up, sales tax went away and then we had to figure out what to do about that. And we got lucky that we came upon the pop -ups, the restaurant pop -ups, and we tried every way we could to save all the businesses, did away with our now famous parking meters and let people park. There weren't that many people using the parking meters. And so it was a very difficult time. Nevertheless, a sense of proportion, a great council, a great staff got the city through probably one of the most difficult years the city had to survive.
Fresh update on "first woman" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"I'm Anne Kramer. Our top local story this hour involves the new FBI headquarters. Virginia lawmakers are welcoming a decision by the GSA Inspector General to probe the process used to choose Greenbelt Maryland as the site for that highly coveted project. WTOP's Mike Morello The federal watchdog will evaluate the site selection process which led to Greenbelt being chosen over two other sites, Landover Maryland and Springfield Virginia. The GSA says when it comes to the cost of building a new headquarters and accessibility, Greenbelt won out. But a Virginia delegation of lawmakers claim political influence led to changes in the process scoring and the FBI director also claimed a former Metro employee's involvement in the process may be a conflict of interest because the Greenbelt site is owned by Metro. Meantime, a Maryland delegation of lawmakers say the process was thorough and transparent and talking to WTOP Senator Chris Van Hollen says we are absolutely confident that the evaluation will keep us on a path to making sure we have the FBI headquarters in Greenbelt Maryland. Mike Murillo, WTOP 404, we are counting down to the national Christmas tree lighting on the ellipse near the White House. is It such a great Washington tradition featuring live festive music. The President and First Lady show up helping to throw the switch to light up the tree. WTOP's Scott Gelman is there this afternoon. He joins us live Scott. Yes, John and Ann, I have been asking people ever since I got here in the two o 'clock hour, what officially marks start the of the holiday season. Some folks said it was the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Of course, it ends with Santa Claus. Some people said it was this event here at the ellipse where the National Christmas tree is getting ready to be illuminated. It is standing. I know was there a little bit of drama with that earlier in the week. Some of those winds ultimately knocking it over and sending crews scrambling. And for the haters who possibly didn't get a ticket here, I posed to some people online earlier today. What do you say to those folks this who say is just a regular Christmas tree? Here's what one woman told me. No, it's in our nation's capital. And I think that that's really special and we take it for granted because we're from DC and so we definitely take it for granted. So it's so cool to see an event like this. And even though some folks might take it for granted, Sean and Ann, a lot of people's first time here at this event, of course you can't scramble down here if you're just getting off of work. You have to have won the lottery and then issued a ticket. There's a standing room only section, hundreds of people already in their seats awaiting the President, the First Lady, and of course the national Christmas tree lighting. We'll continue to bring you the latest and of course a traffic implication here as well as many roads around here are closed, so stay with WTOP traffic and weather on the 8th for that as well. Reporting live at the WTOP News. Hopefully Scott will put a good word in for us Sean with Santa. Absolutely. Let's see what happens. In other news afternoon, this there have been nearly 20 robberies recently along a popular trail in Northeast DC and today police say they've made an arrest. We were able to locate and identify one of the suspects and apprehend them. he's been placed under arrest. An 18 year old suspect is now in custody in connection with 18 robberies along Metropolitan the Branch Trail, a popular place for bikers and joggers, DC Police Commander, Sylvan We've had a series of robberies in this area for over a month either on the bike trail or in the streets He says some were armed robberies where the suspect did have a gun. There's one other person who's believed to have involved been in the crime spree but police don't have any information on that suspect yet. In the district, Elle, Nick WTOP News. Charges are now filed against a driver who police say hit two cars and slammed into a barricade near the Capitol early today. Capitol Police say it happened before eight this morning when 28 -year -old Kevin Hyman got off northbound 395 at Washington Avenue, hit the other cars and kept going. Investigators say he was speeding when he turned left onto D Street and crashed into the barricade. Simon is charged with reckless he was driving, resisting arrest and two counts of leaving after a crash. Police say he's being checked over at hospital a and for he was combative and acting delirious. We are learning more details this afternoon of a plan to change zoning in part of our region when it comes to future housing and whether you can actually park there. Montgomery County Council President Evan Glass is quick to say that no one's taking away parking spaces. The zoning text amendment that he's proposing simply eases the requirement that housing developers provide a set number of parking spaces at each project so it would apply he says in a specific type of proposed development. That is within a half a mile of a metro station and a future Purple Line station and also within a quarter of a mile of future bus rapid transit stations. A public hearing is scheduled for January 16th. Kate Ryan WTOP news coming up in money news after traffic
Brittney Sampedro on Husband's Line-of-Duty Cancer Diagnosis in Colorado
"So lymphoma is a very common cancer in the fire service, right? I did a little deep dive, maybe not super deep dive, but I definitely looked at some of the statistics for firefighters specifically. It's crazy. If you ever research it, which I'm sure you probably did at this point, the female firefighters, I did not know how like a 600 % increased risk of breast cancer. That's wild. Wow. And then firefighters have obviously a significant increased risk of cancer as they progress throughout their career. So at the 20 year mark, gets a little more at the 30 year mark, it gets a little more. So cancer is not uncommon in the fire service at all. But you said that the department specifically would never say for certain that it was because of his exposures to chemicals on the job or their gear containing the PFOAS. So was he eligible for any kind of benefit or anything from job related cancer? It's not covered under like a workman's comp type of thing. Colorado has something called the Colorado Cancer Trust. So it's departments that elect to put money into an account that say like, there's an eligibility criteria. He had been a firefighter at that point in 2019 for 10 years. So he was eligible to say like, yes, he's had enough exposure to have been at risk to have this type of cancer that is known or more common for firefighters. So lymphoma was on there. I know testicular cancer is a big one too for men. I didn't know breast cancer for women, but there is an eligibility criteria. They don't come out and say that this is work related. And the department and the everybody who works for Greeley Fire was amazing. They all covered his shifts. So he was able to go through treatment. He had to step offline for a while. And then when the pandemic hit, he kind of was forced to sit at a desk for a little bit just because his immunity was still really low. But I don't even think that there was something written out that like, what happens if a firefighter has cancer? It was just kind of like the guys, everybody at the department banding together and being like, I got your shift. I got your next shift. And they got it all figured out for us. But there was never like a, like, this is work related is workman's comp. It's a, it's a work related issue. It was kind of a separate, you know, like having the cancer trust and then having the Terry Farrell fund reach out to, knowing that it could be a job related cancer. So Colorado is not a presumptive cancer state then. Yeah, that's what it sounds like. And it's crazy to me that in 2023, after all of these studies that there are States that don't have that presumptive cancer legislation. It blows my mind.
What Are Energetic Activations? Photographer Adjanys Marrero Explains
"Talk about like you do these, what do you call them? Energetic activations is your part of what you do, you like to do. What is that? How do you explain how they work? Yeah, absolutely. So during the photo shoot, just because I have done so many throughout the years and each session is an experience, but as I started to work with more people who are in the law of attraction, manifestation, and energetic, I noticed that while we were in session and the way that I directed them through the direction actually created these crazy breakthroughs. So I started to really get these downloads around how when you not only brand your vision and brand it for the world in a very beautiful way, whatever feels beautiful in a line for you, but you're absolutely almost able to break into that frequency into the future because a photo shoot could be quite a pampered experience. It could be like you're leaning back and you're receiving the spotlight and you're allowing yourself to be seen and there's nothing you can do except pose, you know, no matter how uncomfortable you are, you're still being held. And I realized that a lot of people, it's almost like they grabbed that future self and they just literally brought it to this very present moment. And I was like, it's like you meet your future self because you're dressing how she would dress, you're speaking and you're feeling into that. And I'm bringing that energy because I want you to be at your highest calibration because I know that's what's going to get captured in the image. So the reason I do metaphysical branding is because if you're in a negative mood, okay, for example, I'm sure you have a lot of listeners, but I'm a woman who is speaking to women, being in front of the camera is nerve -wracking. Yes, it is. So many body issues, so many issues, you know, it is nerve -wracking. And so when you are scared of how you look, even if you look beautiful, but your hair and your mind is going, I look crazy, I feel ugly, I'm bad, I'm this, I'm that, I don't care how beautiful your images look, the energy that is being emitted is going to put people off. Yeah, I agree with you on that. So what I need to do is to break people out of thinking about themselves and thinking about their clients. In my sessions, you're always constantly thinking about the work and the love that you're giving your clients. So when I capture you, I literally capture you the love you have for those who are going to see these images. So they can like receive something from that. So that's where we have the 50 milliseconds, you know, because we do energy work and we do it very intentionally. So yes, they look gorgeous. Yes, you're having fun. But at every step of the way, we're thinking about how we're serving the collective in the name of the divine. Always, always, always.
Adjanys Marrero Talks Sharing Your Message With Authenticity
"Would be a good question for anybody listening to ask themselves if they have something, a brand, a product, something that they want to offer to people? Like, what would be a good question for them to say, how do I share this or how do I market this? I hate the word market. Like, I wish we could come up with a better word than marketing, you know, because it always makes me think of, like, car salesmen, you know, like, as soon as you walk in, like, you get hit with, like, you know, sorry to all the car salesmen listening, but, you know, like, that aggressive, like, like, you know, they're pitching you, like, you don't want to feel pitched to all the time. So, what should I ask myself if I want to share my message, like, to make sure I'm within integrity? Yeah. Yes. I would, I would ask if you got no benefit at all whatsoever from the work that you do and it would only be of a benefit, you know, what would you do? Because I think that so much of our culture and just living in just the modern society, we're not exempt from fear. And a lot of times that fear triggers that self protecting and acquiring material things. And, you know, we all know that there's no real safety in that. But I think that the best thing that I teach people with the same movement, which is more about creating a focus on healing the world and really being kind of big about it. Like, I have a personal mission that if I could eradicate domestic violence from society and it's so big that I don't know how it's going to happen, but I can only just like tunnel vision. Like, so all the fame, all the glory, all the podcasts has absolutely nothing with me. I know I'm a representative because that's the nature of the work, but it's really, I just cannot wait till I have, you know, so many people who are saying, you know, you helped me get out of domestic violence. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know who to talk to, you know, like not relying on the government or anything like that, but having that internal manifestation ability using creativity, because you have to be creative. Sometimes creativity is all you have. I talk to women who are undocumented, illegal women who are in domestic abuse relationships. Who are they going to go to? Right. But the imagination is something we all have and visualizing could be just the biggest, most powerful thing. So if you could be selfless in your pursuit and imagine that you're, you're actually fixing the world, that you are actually taking on a big, powerful, beautiful vision. Can you draw inspiration from that? And it doesn't matter what you sell because the mission doesn't change. Yeah. Yeah, I can see exactly what you mean. I get it. Because if it was, if I could offer everybody in the world to know and feel seen, validated, heard, and grateful in their life, then I know the world would change. Because if I'm grateful for my life, how am I going to hurt you? I can't hurt somebody else, right? I can't because I'm happy, joyful, and grateful, right? So if we all felt that way and looked at their own life and felt grateful for what they have around them, the love that they have, and whatever it is they're doing, it doesn't matter, then the world would look different. So yeah, I know what you're saying. Because if I could do that, if I could offer and teach people how to do that, then I would, yeah, everything would start to shift. Everything would shift. And if you think about it, it's not that big a deal. You're just teaching people to be grateful. It's not like we're not offering a magical pill or some very varied thing. We're actually offering something that's concrete and solid, that scientific evidence, that just being grateful makes you make better choices because you're happy. When you're happy, you have more access to better decisions. Well, yeah, and it raises your vibration. Like you mentioned Abraham Hicks, like that's what they talk about, raising our frequency, raising our vibration. So gratitude is high on the vibrational scale compared to like guilt, shame, anger, fear, all those things, which are low. So we attract more of those low frequencies where we want to attract higher frequencies. And that's what we all want

Jared Asch Talks With Chris Whitmore of the Richmond Promise
"I am joined by Christopher Whitmore of Richmond Promise. And Chris, first, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to Richmond Promise. And then tell us, what is the Richmond Promise? Absolutely. First off, thank you for inviting me on the podcast. Really great to be here and have this conversation. So I was raised here in the city of Richmond. I still live in Richmond, and growing up here in our community, like so many other young people, I wanted to enter into a career pathway and build an adult life in which I could support the Richmond community and try to make this city, this community, the kind of place that I always envisioned it to be, which is a place where everyone can thrive. Everyone can feel welcome here in Richmond, feel like they have opportunities from the city, from the community to be who they want to be, to contribute to this space and to make this city better for everyone. And so with that really broad, general goal in mind, I decided at a very young age, elementary school age, that I wanted to be a public official when I grew up. I wanted to work specifically in the mayor's office of the city of Richmond when I grew up. And my godmother, Erma Anderson, was mayor when I was in elementary school. She was the first African -American woman elected mayor of the city of Richmond. I grew up with folks like John Gioia, who's our county supervisor and has been our representative for several years on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and several other folks who really inspired me to want to build out a career in public service. And so with that in mind, I went off to college. I went out of state to Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. I studied political science with an emphasis in public law. After graduating from Webster in 2014, I moved to Washington, D .C., where I was accepted into a congressional fellowship. And through that fellowship, I worked in the office of then U .S. Senator Bill Nelson's office of Florida. I moved back to Richmond in December 2014 and got my first job, first full time job working for Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, who at the time was the representative, newly elected representative for California's 11th congressional district. I had the privilege of working as an outreach coordinator in his Richmond office, which is actually just down the hall from where my current office is today. A year later, 2016, I got to accomplish that childhood goal of mine of working in the mayor's office. I worked for Mayor Tom Butt, starting off initially as his director of community engagement, later promoted to be his director of policy and strategy. After about two years in that office, I went over to the city and county of San Francisco, where I went to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and worked on their policy and government affairs team. And for about a year and a half, I wrote, along with my supervisor, all of the water, power and wastewater legislation for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. And I'll speed up the story. So about a year and a half later, I came back here to the city of Richmond and served as Tom Butt's chief of staff for exactly two years. And two years ago, October 4th, 2021, I started as Richmond Promise's second executive director. And it's been a great journey over the last two years, and I was really inspired to make the transition from the mayor's office to Richmond Promise. Just thinking back on my experience growing up in Richmond, having a goal to go to college at a young age for the sake and purpose of really accomplishing my career goals. And just being reminded constantly that there are so many other young people in Richmond who have educational and career goals for themselves. And those young people also deserve to have really strong support systems in our community to help them go off and do the things that they want to do. And I came over to Richmond Promise to strengthen that support system for our entire community.
Guest Host Rich Zeoli Tackles Iran, Hamas and Wokeist Support
"Yeah. And you know what? If some people fire, get lost in the ah, oh, well. And yet we gave them billions of dollars, pallets of cash, and we helped them expand their nuclear program. That's why Alan Dershowitz, when he was on my radio show, said Barack Obama's been a villain in all this, trying to equate that both sides here, both sides have been wrong. Israel was attacked by Hamas on October 21st. And I'll tell you something else, too. I got to give Sheryl Sandberg credit, the former CEO of Facebook, now known as Metta, because she came out with a piece and she talked about how we need to be calling out Hamas for raping women. And we need to be doing that. And these same groups on college campuses, you know, the Rainbow Hair and all their alphabet soup organizations, those same kids on college campuses who were there, out the pro -Hamas kids don't seem to care how women are treated. They don't seem to care how these terrorists destroy will women and they have no respect for them. They don't consider them equal. They'll rape them. They'll beat them. They'll assault them. They have no rights in their countries. But woke -ism is all about figuring out who the victim group is and then deciding to support that victim group no matter So what. in this case on college campuses, what you've seen is that the progressive woke people have all decided that somehow Hamas, they're really just freedom fighters here and they're the ones who are the victims. So that's why you have the pro -Hamas terrorists, protesters out there all over college campuses and now it's getting to the point where they're also ransacking the offices of the DNC. But how do we get here? I mean how do we get to this point where we can now as the United States of America turn around and try to tell Israel what to do and try to tell Israel how it should fight its wars? How do we get here to this place? Well, this is what Mark tweeted out a short ago. time It's now official. Biden, Blinken do not want Israel to win the war against Hamas and they more continue onerous to conditions place more on and Israel and as they plot to carve up Israel and give Judea and Syria, West Bank to the Palestinians, all of whose leaders are terrorists, and Gaza. The Biden Blinken plan is to destroy Israel, which is the original Obama Blinken plan. Meanwhile, while Biden Blinken
Media Matters Tries to Destroy Elon Musk's X
"Linda Yaccarino said, if you know me, you know I'm committed to truth and fairness. Here's the truth. Not a single authentic user on X saw IBM, Comcast or Oracle ads next to content in the Media Matters article. Only two users saw an Apple ad next to the content, at least one of which was Media Matters. Data wins over manipulation or allegations don't mean manipulated stand with X. Yeah, this is a multidimensional hit job. And they're trying to go after Elon personally and criminally. They're trying to go after his liberation of the platform, all because Elon has now become a serious threat to the regime, to the unit party and the left by allowing us to speak, by allowing us to challenge preexisting orthodoxies, allowing us to incubate elite opinion in a way that the bad guys don't like. And so, you know, Michael, talk a little bit more about Media Matters. I don't know if they've targeted you. You know, they come after us quite a lot. Who funds these guys? It's it's it's a great question. You know, we see Rumble, we see X, you know, they're they're suing intensely. What else do we know about it? Well, we know that their executives make a whole lot of money in order to stifle your freedom of speech. In fact, the CEO, a woman named Angelo Caruso, Caruso makes four hundred fifty three thousand dollars a year. The person who's been in the news all week is actually David Brock. And he's arguably the most ideologically weaponized. He's the chairman of Media Matters, making two hundred ninety two thousand dollars a year in order to stifle your speech. But what's interesting is that you highlighted earlier Media Matters doesn't just not like Elon. They don't like you having the right to speak freely. Their donors and funders rely on them keeping the truth hidden and behind the curtain. The reality is X has been a platform that has provided for millions of Americans to learn the truth of what's happening in society in a way that never would have happened had X been under its formal leadership under Twitter. So we never would have learned about all that happened with the laptop and Hunter Biden. We never would have learned about the malfeasance in Ukraine. We never would have learned even recently about the January six tapes because so much of the effort for releasing the tapes, which I'm glad Speaker Johnson did, happened on X. So Media Matters can't lose their grip on power. Their grip on power relies on you not knowing the truth. And so we're seeing, as you described, this very coordinated hit job from people who are paid very, very highly in order to stifle your freedom of speech. One other thing that I will note is that some of the executives that Media Matters has tried to pull to drop their ads are people like NBC. NBC is a really interesting case because just last week NBC had a journalist of theirs that was defending somebody, an editor in chief of a progressive news site that ended up being outed as a pedophile, is now being charged with child pornography counts in one of the most egregious cases that law enforcement has ever seen in that area. So we're seeing that this virtue signaling is really just meant to target you. They don't want you to speak freely. And even these advertisers are backing people that are corrupt and dysfunctional. And yet Media Matters is silent on it. So Media Matters hasn't called out NBC about that, but they'll gladly call out NBC on a fake story that is not rooted in real data. And I'm glad that X ultimately is calling it
Uncovering Repressed Anger: How Food Became My Only Comfort
"I'm going to give a couple of quotes from your writing that are really pretty profound and then we're going to talk about some of the recovery work you did at Shift. You say, food was my friend, my lover, my companion. I could always rely on food to be there and comfort me when I had no one to turn to. And you said, food helped me to feel calm, normal, accepted, loved and enough. I was raised to not show anger, to be seen and not heard. A woman's place is in the home, raising a family and obeying the husband. I felt my purpose was to take care of others and not consider the cost to myself. There were decades of repressed anger and resentment and I used food to help me cope with all of life's ups and downs. So yeah, food's our friend. It's the thing that doesn't argue back, you know, so we can rely on it, right, and it works. I had no idea how angry I was through all of that and it was only in recovery and working the steps and coming to see what my life was like that I was able to start doing some of that recovery work because that's why I went to the food, all this emotional. So I just thought I was an emotional eater. We'd hear about it so often in magazines and television, you know, you see the girl that had the breakup and you'd see her eating that pint of ice cream and it was normalized that that's what you did when you had extreme emotions that it was okay to go to food. So I didn't realize until I did get into recovery and learn about food addiction that there was something different about me specifically when it came to food, that this was not really normal. I knew that the way I ate was not normal but I didn't know why it wasn't normal. I just kept thinking I had a lack of willpower, that I just could not do what other people could do so I kept beating myself up because I couldn't do it. Yeah, talk about the anger and resentment. So you probably didn't realize you were angry of all the years of things that had occurred with you and I would assume that in shift with some of the emotional work they do there that you found out, yeah, I'm angry, I've got resentment. How did you get in touch with that and how did you work through it? Well the first intensive I went to that was Esther's intensive led by Amanda at shift. On the first day she asked me how I was feeling and I totally blanked out. I had no idea what I was feeling. I had never tapped into emotions at all. So she literally had to list are you happy, are you sad, are you angry and I thought what does that mean and then I thought oh yeah I'm sad and then the anger. Then when I really started tapping into the anger that's what really bubbled up because I never had an opportunity to explore any of that anger. It was always shoved down especially with the food because I wasn't allowed to speak about it. So that was really very instrumental but it still took Amanda repeating over and over again different emotions that it was possible to have before I could relate to actually having those emotions. What did you find that you were angry about? I was angry about a lot. I was angry at myself for putting up with so much. I'm very co -dependent so I put up with a lot of stuff. I always put my family, my friends, my job, everything went first before me but I was also angry with my parents, I was angry with my spouse, I was angry with employers. I was just one really angry person and I never realized it until I got into recovery. I thought I was a martyr. I thought I was self -sacrificing to do for everyone else when in fact it was I just wanted them to do what I wanted them to do. I wanted to control them so I didn't have emotion. If you did what I told you to do I wouldn't get upset. I wouldn't have to eat this food. You're the reason I'm eating all of this stuff because I'm an emotional eater.
The Left's Classic Fliparoo: Everything They Do, They Blame on You
"You have to be to say that but as always with the left they do this flipparoo thing where everything they do they turn around and blame on you and they don't even care that it sounds ridiculous this is the New York Times is Marigay one of the dumbest people in the media I'll play the next clip if think you I'm making this up this is real I'll play that after but I want you to listen one of the dumbest people in media actually went on the air and did this segment about implying like MAGA people are like fascists and stuff and then at the end remarkably claiming as the left she supports the leftist take away people's rights put people in jail censor them target Donald Trump and his supporters for non -crimes claiming the left are losing rights to us and you're like it's this woman like with a hundred Biden smoking crack like was out she crazy to back this point about you know the GDP I can't think of an anywhere election in America where somebody goes to the polls because they said you know what I'm gonna vote for this guy because the GDP looks so good Americans understand that Republicans understand that or they wouldn't be throwing red meat to their base right why don't Democrats understand that they're starting to and I think I have to too say that I think in our business by that I mean journalism politics I think that too often gets mistaken for sophistication and there is just this sense of to your point Joe nobody is going to go to the polls for democracy nobody really cares if women don't have the right to decide what happens to their own bodies well it turns out that Americans aren't just cynical as the rest of us at least least a majority of them and that is why they're voting because they do see Donald Trump I believe for who he is they do see fascism they are concerned about it they want to have a better future for their children my goddaughter daughter is six years old and has fewer rights than I had 30 years ago few what is she talking about your goddaughter has fewer right name one women never well I'm a it on it out is that okay can name one by the way it's not a right to be able to kill a woman in the womb that's not a right actually the woman in the womb has rights like to live that's like a right thing you know like kind of the first one you know has Jim said you know life liberty pursuits something it was in like founding documents or something like that you've heard of it yeah life liberty pursuer it was it oh yeah Joe Jim reminded me I didn't get him wrong out of order was actually the life first one liberty and because you see if you're not alive
How Endrow Metelus Is Bridging the Gap Between STEM, Gaming, and Fashion
"So I know that one of your vision and aspiration is to sponsor STEM programs. So why the interest in STEM? The reason the interest in STEM, I work. So let me tell you what I do. Outside of this, I have a normal nine to five. Right. OK, so I work in the STEM field. So my job currently as a business development manager for Intel with an S .H .I. My job function is mainly talking to customers, mostly schools, universities, mostly I cover public sector. So I have conversation about their curriculum, the hardware piece. That's where Intel comes in. The funding, the grant and space design. So what we've seen is that STEM is also attached to e -sports. Right. So e -sports is the largest right after the NFL. Yeah. Can you tell us what is e -sports? e -sports is entertainment sports. It's gaming, competitive gaming. OK. So you have thousands of schools in the United States giving out scholarship for e -sports. Wow. We at S .H .I., we had what we call Battle Academy, which was a scholastic e -sports tournament platform. We were giving out hundreds of thousand dollars for curriculum, hardware and space design to schools and everything. So I go to a lot of conferences. We have a lot of OEM partners like LG, Intel, Microsoft, all the big manufacturers. They all have interest in e -sports because e -sports is attached to STEM. And the reason STEM is very important is there's a lot of open positions right now. Millions, hundreds of thousands of open positions right now that we cannot fill in America. Seriously. So we have to get outside workers to come in to fill these roles. Yeah. Yeah. So the thing is, we have a lot of young black male and women, Hispanic, Asian, white, whatever, who can fill in these roles. So why don't we, why don't we like. Wait a minute. You said who can fill in this role? But we all know about the low representation of our population in the STEM field. Many of them are not really interested in STEM education. So how can they fill those without experience and knowledge? How can they fill those? That's why we come in. That's why we want to. That's what Fervolo Boy is about, right? Because we know these young people, they love clothing. They got style, they love wearing. So they're already spending their money in clothing. They all like wearing, they're already there. This is innovative. So while we attach it, bring the awareness because the clothing is the awareness as well. And also showing the beauty is all connected. So they're spending the clothing. The clothing business is a trillion dollar business is only increasing even more. Absolutely. Right. So my thing is, we know where they are. Yeah. We know what interests these kids. And people always want to wear nicest clothes, right? You go on TikTok, you go on Instagram. People always want to dress in a different way, different clothes and everything, right? So why don't we create a clothing that is cool to wear, that is nice. The aesthetics is beautiful. Also gives back, right? Also showing their beauty, but at the same time, give them interest into STEM. Because some people don't know what STEM is. That's true. Then now they're going to have the understanding of STEM. But at the same time, we have a bunch of young kids in the inner cities, they're all gamers. Gaming and STEM go hand in hand. Absolutely. So we increase the interest, have the understanding, hey, I can go ahead and be cybersecurity. I can go ahead and not only do all these other things.
RINO Billionaires Are Now Coalescing Behind Nikki Haley
"Wants you to know she's up for the fight. She's told us over and over again that she's a woman. Why does she have to tell us over and over again that she's a woman? Isn't that what the Libs do, or at least used to do? Okay, got it. She's a woman. Perfect. But she's not Margaret Thatcher. Let's be honest. The problem is Nikki Haley's not a conservative. I've said it before I'll and say it again. She's George Bush in a dress. Obviously what I mean by that is ideologically. This is why Karl Rove is getting behind her. This is why others who horrific have losing streaks are getting behind her. Billionaires getting behind her. There's a report out now, I think it was Axios, that said that she was meeting with the. No, no, there's a report on Axios that says Mitt Romney's big money guy has now moved over to Kelly's team. What? Oh yeah. Romney's guy. And there's more. Remember this guy Fink at Black Rock? I wrote about him and The Democrat Party hates America and we've talked about him very often. Black Rock? Remember he was pushing ESG, that is, he was pushing hard this woke agenda and trying to impose it on all the other companies that he helps finance or invests in? A one -man wrecking machine, this guy Fink. Well guess who she met with a few days ago? Him. Why would she meet with him? Ron DeSantis. May I use his name, Mr. Producer? Is that okay? What drew $2 billion from Black Rock because of what they were doing? Yeah. Thank you. Iggy Haley And Iggy Haley was the one who said she said it herself. I know this to be true. I checked with my stepson, Mr. Producer. And that is that Disney, she said Disney can come to South Carolina while DeSantis is fighting Disney. She invites them to South Carolina and I can go on and on. And it's not just her versus DeSantis or her versus Ramaswami or versus her Trump, it's her versus us. Us. So you're seeing, if you were to ask Mitch McConnell who he liked, Nikki Haley. They'll all like Nikki Haley. In Washington D .C., Republicans. the That's who
Let's Get "Unwoke" With Senator Ted Cruz
"Him backing me up when I needed it. He's just a good guy. Welcoming back to the show. Senator Ted Cruz. Senator, thanks for your time. We appreciate it. Dan, great to be with you. Thanks for me having on. You got it. So you got this new book out. I'm looking. It's already a mega bestseller. I'm gonna ask you a bunch of questions about this. It's called Unwoke, folks. Unwoke. How to Defeat Cultural Marxism in America. And I want to get to the book in a second, but this question will kind of segue right into it. I you know care as much as I do about our military. It's a passion of yours. I know that I've spoken to you privately it. about Given you wrote this book on moke, it's got to get under your skin that we're decimating our military and getting them away from the mission of defeating our enemy. It's not a cutesy time mission. We have to kill bad guys. That's what the military does. And we're getting into this DEI, which I call DIE for a reason stuff. And you've been up there on the hill, you're hearing of all these stupid, ridiculous justifications from Millie and others. Is there anything we can do to stop this and get them back to which is the real mission? But look, you're exactly right that that the military is to protect this mission to keep Americans safe. And unfortunately, under under Joe Biden, the military has been been more and more their political leadership. They're focused on politics. They're focused on, you know, you've got commanders telling the servicemen and women under under them, they can't use the pronouns he or she they can't use the words mother or father. And as the military gets more woke, fewer and fewer people actually want to sign up to defend this nation. And we've got a recruiting huge problem, because the people who sign up to serve their patriots, they want to fight. don't They want to be treated like wusses. And and unfortunately,

"Joanne Fawcett dramatically changed her life over the last 20 years, seven marriages, including abuse, divorce, and death, the seventh husband was a former military intelligence officer, an active member of the Mormon church for nearly 30 years, she left it behind to embrace the world of UFOs, elementals, magic, and paranormal, which speak deeply to her soul, through her many struggles, she found her strengths, gifts, and inner power, learning that dreams do come true, she is an international speaker on the topic of UFOs, extraterrestrials, including the military's involvement, her book, Midlife Magic, is the story of her journey, her passion is to teach others about this world of wonder, and today, she is a warrior who proudly carries the title, Wise Woman Crone, I love that, and you can find out more about Joanne if you go to her website, which is dragonhillbooks .net, welcome Joanne, thanks for coming today, I'm excited to talk to you.

Okay, well, and I can't remember, that was part of my bio, but you know, when I was a kid, we watched, I grew up in the 50s and 60s, so we watched Martian movies that were pretty cheesy, and then, yeah, I didn't think anything more about it, and I didn't, you know, I didn't even think about it until much later, I'd had some ghost experiences in my when I met number seven, I was still a member of the Mormon Church, but after I met him, and I started visiting him, and we started talking about other things, and other spiritual things, and stuff, I left the church, so that's, that's a different story, because like, it was no big trauma there, but then, you know, probably years, well, it wasn't right away, but years, I mean, I knew he'd been into the military, eventually, I knew it was military intelligence, and eventually, you know, it probably was a good two or three, or, you know, it was a few years into the relationship, and he gave me something to read, and type up, because he'd written this story about a space mission that he'd been on, and I'm going, what, this is real, and you've been in space, and there's aliens, and this is all real, and yeah, yeah, yeah, and it's funny, because in 2004, he said, oh, there's a, and at the time, I was living in California, and, and he said, oh, there's a UFO conference in the San Francisco barrier, you know, you might want to go, it's like, okay, that sounds like fun, and I went, and I was just going to go for one day, it's like, oh, I need to go back for the second day, because this was all new, and exciting information to me, and then, by the next year, I had enough of his information at my fingertips, so that I could have my own booth at that, that fair, and then I started getting on radio shows, and speaking at conferences, and things, so it, you know, it was, it lasted, well, I was, I was on the speaking circuit until a COVID hit, basically, okay, you know, yeah, and then I've been on a lot of podcasts, and, and I just start, I just did my first in -person speaking thing a couple weeks ago,
Outrageous Stalker Attacks Religious Jews for Their Traditions
"So I, minding my own business, I posted it on my social sites. Then along comes this stalker, who obviously has nothing to do with her life, hanging on the looking at. And what does she say? Well, what do you call her, Mr. British? She retweets or responds to my quote, quote, treated Now her. in 2010, as the New York Post points out, she considers herself to be a deeply religious Jew. Well, she's a liar, I doubt that. She quoted Jewish conservative commentator Mark Levin's video footage of rabbis, a quorum of Jewish adults traditionally male required for certain religious observances outside the White House. And you know what this dimwit said? Where are the women? I thought women or woman was a banned word now. I mean, when you have a Supreme Court justice, a can't define woman. But Weingarten can because she famously announced that publicly nobody cared. Nobody asked I that. think she was married to another woman, something like that. Now, I didn't ask her for opinion. I don't care for her opinion. I don't I don't care about her. In fact, I dislike her intensely given what she's doing to the young people in this country. Where are the women? So this was really an attack on Orthodox Judaism. She would never do that for the Muslims that have separate parents. No, no, no. Where are the women? I guess there I guess they're praying over in another direction, which is the way it works. sorry, I'm everybody can't be members of the American Federation of Teachers, aka the American Federation of Propagandists. About 35 % of teachers are Republicans, but I'm talking about the other 65 % that run the show. Orthodox Jews have gender separated prayers and they've had it for thousands of years. Thousands of years. So I decided to respond to her, and not in any substantive way, because I think she's got a negative IQ and it wouldn't matter anyway. She's a zealot. So I wrote, you're a contemptible moron, get off my timeline, you idiot. Isn't that pretty much what I would say on the phone, Mr. Producer? You're a contemptible moron. You're a contemptible moron, Ron Garton. Get off my timeline, you idiot. So, others joined in. The story exploded. So she blocked the comments, didn't she, Mr. Producer? She didn't want to hear anything. Brother Ben Shapiro jumped in. But I will tell
Mark Speaks With Woman Whose Family Was Taken Hostage by Hamas
"Side dead on of the the road. I mean, how much horror and velocity can one family contend with? Yarden was at March, you can call it, but at the event on the nation's capital, nation's the mall, latest number 290 ,000 people were there, she and and family members of other hostage -affected families flew all the way from Israel for the event and are flying back tonight, and it is our honor to have Yarden with us. Yarden, what do you want to say to the American people, millions of whom are listening to you right now? First thank of all, you for hosting me. I kind of want to ask, is it me just described? I still can't believe the reality that is going on. I still can't believe I'm having to tell such a hard story, but I still can't believe it's not only my story, but a story of hundreds and thousands. So thank you for listening to it. No, it's the least we can do here. I just want you to know, everybody and I who want may come in contact to know there are literally tens of millions of Americans. We still live who stand with Israel, who stand with you, who stand with your family and the other families. And some of this stuff you see from college campuses and in the streets, this is a very small minority of Americans, that we are thoroughly disgusted by what has taken place. It is very, very important that that be conveyed to you and to others who who might, are in your situation and so forth. Are you getting any family members? Actually, no. Let me say we're here on this journey with some other families and of course we feel the support that you've mentioned and it's always nice and good to be here because we do watch TV and we watch other side protesting and it's just like hurting us the even more reality than of what is going on. We are actually here on a journey to pray to go to Lubavit Rabai and be together and hold hands and wait for a miracle because that's what it takes. So, a bad, organized, really magnificent journey for us. They are wrapping us with a lot of love and we also see that this is how the journey becomes real about our situation. You can't even begin to explain how worried I am for them and for their mother. My sister -in -law is so polite gentle person. and They watch their grandmother, their beloved grandmother killed in front of their eyes and it's 40 days now that we don't even know in what condition they are. This understanding. is beyond How can it be? if they're We don't together. even know We don't even know if they are alive, injured,
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/14/23
"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. 738 on this Tuesday, the 14th day of November. Lots of Texas political news. But I did get a chance to spend a moment there in the opening half hour saying that I grow weary of the moral fog. In fact, on Twitter just a couple of moments ago, in these fractured times, I'm glad to give a Democrat some credit. Democrat Senator Chris Coons, who is right on Israel, was confronted by this stooge pro -Hamas activist on a train who badgered him. Why not a ceasefire? Why not a ceasefire? Sometimes moral clarity is something that needs to be delivered in a certain fashion. I'd like to think I have it intellectually and conceptually. My buddy Mike Gallagher joins us, who had an experience yesterday that will bring that kind of clarity in the harshest but necessary terms. I just can't wait to see how this day went. It had to be amazing and I'm just so glad you're here and the floor is yours. And tell everybody what you got a chance to do yesterday. Well, it was something that no one would want to see. It was pretty brutal. It was worse than I thought it was going to be. Israel put together a 45 -minute sort of a collection of video and audio and still photographs. They were videos from the terrorists' GoPros and their cell phones. There were closed -circuit videos and there were audio intercepts. They got audio recordings of the terrorists calling their families. The IDF was able to tap into some of these calls where they were calling their parents excitedly, saying, I just killed 10 Jews with my bare hands, Mom. Your son is a hero. Your son is a hero, Aloha Akbar. And they're all joyful and ecstatic. A couple of takeaways. When you watch the brutality of the violence that they inflicted on these innocent men, women, children, elderly people, there are a couple of things that really stand out. Number one, the ecstasy and the joy that the Hamas terrorists experienced as they were killing people, including little babies in little onesies and little daisy outfits and cute little kids covered in blood, slaughtered brutally. And they were absolutely euphoric, Mark. That's the only word to use. It was ecstatic for them. They had such a joy. And I kept telling myself, there's no way they think that Jews are human. There's no way that they regard them as human beings. You couldn't do that to another human being and have that kind of satisfaction. I mean, let's face it. When you think about crime in America or crimes of passion or murders or robberies or whatever, what have you, normal people don't have euphoria when they cut somebody's head off. They don't get joyful and they don't call their moms and brag about it and say, look what I did. Look what I did. So number one, that's one of the big takeaways. And the other thing I kept thinking about, and it was a somber mood. It was at the Israeli embassy. There were a number of some media people there, some pastors. It was a gathering from the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews who we worked with closely right after the terror attack of October the 7th. About 60 people in the room, maybe 70. It was very somber. It was very well done. But as you can imagine, there were tears. There was crying. There was weeping. One pastor in front of me, in fact, he happens to be a pastor from Sarasota, not far from where I'm at right now. When it was over, he kind of flung himself down onto the ground and laid across the stage and was laying on his belly just heaving, just crying and sobbing. I mean, you're looking right at the face of the devil. You're looking at evil with this. And I kept thinking, Mark, how I wish the people marching at Columbia and Harvard and in Austin, how I wish they could see this video. From the river to the sea, you proud now? You proud now? I mean, you know, the one pastor, I spent some time, I pulled double duty after the show and then I did the screening at this embassy. And then I was asked to do an afternoon show for WAVA, which is a huge Christian teaching and talk station. Over in Arlington, yeah. Yep, the Arlington. And so Don Crow has been out on a medical leave and they asked me to fill in for him. And I had with me Bishop Lanier, who is the chairman of the board of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, as a very profound speaker, very eloquent, very, you know, just a great orator and a great man of the cloth. And he said, look, I don't think we're going to change their minds. We need to change our minds. We need to change what we say from the pulpit. We've got to stop the equivocation. Well, it's two sides here. People are dying on both sides. That is both -sides -ism of the worst possible stripe. It really is, Mark. And I just want to reiterate that because I don't know that Israel, listen, if Israel was guilty of any of the stuff that I saw yesterday, that I experienced, and again, I'm not trying to be melodramatic. It's one of the most painful things I've ever, ever encountered. I mean, and I'll spare you gory details. You can imagine how bad it was. I mean, you already have seen some of it, you know, lining up on the streets and just shooting into cars of innocent passengers trying to drive down the street. But there was one scene in particular that got to me the most. I do want to share it with you. There was a father alone with his sons. The mother was gone, and it was in the kibbutz. They did a horrible massacre in this kibbutz, which is like a Jewish religious holy neighborhood, you know. But they're beautiful little homes. I mean, oh, their homes were so cute and decorated and, you know, plants on the porches and everything. And they were meticulously taken care of. So here's this father in the house, and it's all captured on the family's closed -circuit video. So they had like a ring system all throughout the house and outside, and it was all captured. So the father is with these two boys. I would guess the one little boy was about seven or eight. The other one was probably 11 or 12. And the little boys were in their underwear. And the shots ring out, and the father, they're all terrified, and the father desperately tries to protect his children. He scoops them both up, and they run into the backyard, and they go into a little shed that's in the backyard. It looked like a little gardening shed. And you see a Hamas terrorist come around the corner and casually pull the pit off of a grenade and throw the grenade in the shed. And it blows up, and the father immediately slumps out of the shed dead. You could tell he's instantly dead. But the two little boys are alive, and they come running out in their underwear. The one boy, you can see it looks like his eye is missing. He is terrified. The two little boys are crying, Daddy, Daddy, Mommy, Mommy. They go into the kitchen. Now the closed -circuit video picks them up in the kitchen where they're talking to each other. And they said to each other, and it's all translated, of course, and they said, Is this real? Is this real? I think we're going to die. Daddy died. Daddy died. Where's Mommy? Where's Mommy? And then the one little boy turns to his brother, his little brother, and says, Can you see out of that eye? He says, No, I can't. And he looks at him, and you can see that it looks like his whole side of his face was injured from the grenade. And he says, You can't? You can't? You can't see? He goes, No, I can't see anything out of my eye. And the little boys are crying, and they're calling for their Mommy. And then the closed -circuit shifts back to the backyard where a kibbutz security guard, actually two security guards, have escorted the mother to the property. She had been away. So they take her to the back of the shed where her dead husband is laying. She is now in anguish and screaming and collapsing and screaming, Where are my boys? Where are my boys? At the same time, the two boys, they run out of the house in the front, trying to escape. And Lord knows what fate they met. I don't have a whole lot of high hope that they made it. And I'd like to look into that. I'm going to follow up with my friends at the fellowship to see if those boys were reunited with their mother. But that's the human suffering that I wish people who seem to dehumanize Jews would see. It was eye -opening. I'm glad I did it. I'm honored that I did it. I'm glad you did, too. I'm so glad. But it was awful. And I wouldn't want anybody to see it. For people who – and sometimes you can hear people in your headphones and hear people driving around. And I want to give a voice to people saying we could show a horrible video of a Palestinian child to whom something terrible has happened, and that is undeniably true.

"And you move on, yeah. And then you move on with your day. Absolutely. And I'm catching the stories that we're trying to come up in my head, right? Like, oh, all the bad luck and why me, like, why is this happening now? You know, the silly, there's a stories, by the way, they're not reality people. They're just stories in your hand. But so I'm shutting the stories down. I go, nah, it's just a thing that happened, and it doesn't say a thing about me as a person. If we came into actual true reality, we'll recognize that so much a human behavior is just to be acceptable. Just to have worth and to just be like, am I lovable yet? Is this enough yet? Did I do enough yet? Am I successful enough yet? Did I make enough money? Did I get a big enough house? As my wife attractive enough, like so much of life is just to try to prove that we're worthy and acceptable. But what if you already believe that? Do you know how much energy you save when you don't have to try to be proving that anymore? It's very badass. I highly recommend it. Highly recommend it. I love that. Okay, so here is last thing that I think is going to be so helpful. Yes. A good book recommendation if somebody listening right now is recognizing they have this struggle or if they've known they have a struggle with sex with acting out if they understand it sex addiction, whatever realm on the spectrum they're in, what is something you would recommend them to read or check out? Yes, fantastic. I say everyone read this, but especially women, there is a great book by Charlotte castle, women, sex, and addiction. And it's very good. It's very good. Of course, Patrick carnes, kind of the granddad of sex addiction and things. There's a lot of research and a lot of cool things coming out of that space. Sure. I like rob Weiss. He's got some, there's a sex addiction one O one book. It's literally called sex addiction one O one. That can be a really helpful book. Later on as moving further into recovery and we're coming into like, how do you be sexually healthy and vibrant? While having sex addiction in your background, erratic intelligence. Alexandra Kate is, it's a very good book. It's likely to be very triggering for people that are newer in their healing. So maybe skip that one for a while, but later, definitely read it. It's a great read. And the majority of my YouTube channel is all education from a personal point, as well as the continuing education that I've had. Most of my YouTube channel is just direct easy to understand, easy to digest information about sex addiction. YouTube, Jace downy. That's what I do. We're teaching about and we're de stigmatizing D shaming sex addiction through education..

"You can survive alone. We are not designed to be alone. Human connection is as important as food and water. And a lot of people, I think, in every area of life, but particularly with sex addiction are looking for just that. Actual, genuine human connection. And you can't get it through the reacting out behaviors that we engage in. Intimacy comes when we are true about who we are, where we're at in life, how we're showing up, what we want, when we are living that agency and authentic selves and we're sharing that openly and bravely with another. That's intimacy. Having sex with a stranger is not. But it can kind of feel like it for a couple of hours. So real human connection, I'd say, is the biggest one. And then we get a lot around worth and acceptance, which also is a survival need. We can not be accepted by others until we are in radical acceptance of ourselves. And I use the word radical because I mean all of it has to be included and embraced. You don't have to like it all. You don't have to keep it all. But we have to accept it all in ourselves. If we don't, we'll never actually feel connected and accepted by others because there's going to be that little voice in our head that goes, yeah, but they don't know this. Or there's this thing to be ashamed of, that even you hide from. So this is your inner voice accent, by the way, it talks like that. What we're talking about is getting down to the core of who and what.

"We've got to pull it all out is one theory. There are other theories on that, but really to get into that. I had been in recovery for over three years. Until then, when it's all chaos and I'm a mess and I'm not doing a great job in my life. It's like a girl. No, you ain't ready. You can't handle any of this still. So I'm going to keep it hidden for you because I love you. And it's my job. And I want you to function and survive. And I love that our brains and body do that for us. Until we want to be healing, thriving, amazing, phenomenal people reaching our full potential and then all of a sudden we don't have to dig it all out, right? So that was part of my journey as well. And it's why a safe environment is so important. And yes, that can come through 12 step as it does for me. Yes, it can come through traditional therapy. Yes, it can come through other support groups. You can get support and have a team and a community outside of recovery. People don't have to understand your exact situation to have your back. And this is a really big thing for people with sex addiction. Because there's not a lot of support that's just out there in the world. It is highly stigmatized. That's just the truth. We're working on it. Please join me in working on it. But we're working on bringing that stigma down, bringing the shame down around that. So having community in this area is really hard. And what I have found is you don't have to have people know exactly the things. Everybody's got stuff. I guarantee everybody has done something that they aren't proud of, or they think that defines them. And men pornography coming into the mix, the way it has..
"Healing really bringing the body in. That was the last piece because I've been terrified of my body for my entire life and super disconnected, but bringing in the breath, meditation. And that started growing bigger and bigger than I had community. Community is such a big part of this. You got to have such a huge part of it. It's the biggest part of it. The biggest part of it. I say it a thousand times and I feel like you still come up against this thought process of people that, well, I just wanted to do it on my own. I'm just going to try to figure it out on my own. I think I could do this on my own. And I'm like, wow, what a really sad and lonely way to approach anything. Like you have to we are pack animals as human beings. We are created to connect and be together and do things together. And that was the biggest lifesaver. And especially at this stage of my sobriety too, like, I can easily tell you, I mean, listen, AA saved my life. There's no question. But a lot of that is that AA was the cheat sheet, right? All I had to do was show up. And then I had acceptance, I had a place to learn about myself and learn what was going on within me. I had a place to do the steps and start the very tip of the iceberg healing and to start to gain some self respect because that's really what I got through working the steps was self respect. I did something I was committed to it. I showed up every day and I followed through and the only thing I had ever done that with before was drinking. And drinking surly didn't give me self respect. But showing up and going through this process and being committed to it gave me self respect. And I got to start breaking out of some of that self loathing. And it gave me community. It gave me the people to hang out with. So I wasn't lonely. I wasn't bored. I wasn't missing my old life. You know, so for me, it was just the cheat sheet. All I had to do, my dumb ass just had to walk in and sit down. And literally it had to be that simple for me because I don't know if I could have done anything more than just show up and sit down, you know, for a long time. Yes. And I've watched far too many people continue doing only that. Yeah, it gives us that taste, but then we feel a little bit better. And for so many folks, that little bit better stays the plan, where everything else, because it's like a little better than deep, complete suffering. Well, I'm surprised you at how many people don't realize the deeper stuff going on. I had a client and I don't know why this surprises me because it was kind of my same experience in a certain way. But I had a client say to me, maybe a year ago, I said something, you know, in a conversation and I said something about her trauma and she goes, you know, she said, it's really crazy. I didn't realize I had trauma until I started working with you. And I was like, wow, because she has some significant stuff, right? That to me, I guess as a professional and obviously I've been doing this a long time and have a ton of education and experience, but it just seems so second nature to me, but I had a similar experience with sex trauma where I knew it was there. I knew it existed. I didn't have any of the overt things. I wasn't molested. I wasn't raped, right?.
"I actually went deeper and darker than I'd ever gone before. My life actually got scarier. And I started, and I think because I knew now I had some awareness around my behaviors and that there was a way out. So all of a sudden it was like, uh oh, this really is a problem. We talk about this same thing with alcoholism. And drugs, right? Like nothing will ruin your good time more than knowing you need to stop and still doing it anyway. You know, like when you really reach the place that you understand your behavior is problematic and you have to make some changes. It's not healthy. Once you really grasp that, your addiction of choice is no longer going to be fun and lighthearted. It's a buzzkill for sure. But I'm going to switch up some of the language there. And the answer is, do I have to? No, I can drive myself right into the grave. My dad did, so many people do, right? But is that the life I want? Which is fantastic. I always say addiction is not your fault. Recovery is your responsibility. Because man. That's not your fault. You know, this stuff started for me at 5. Maybe younger. You want to bring my 5 year old self, oh, she was cute. Cute, cute, cute, long hair, adorable, sweet kid, nothing but love in her. You want to bring her in here and start telling her that this life is her fault because I don't, 'cause it wasn't. Yeah. You know what I'm saying? So we're coming back. I start the recovery thing life gets worse. I finally am humbled. Where I go, I don't got this. All right, bring me those bring me those God things again. Well, I'm gonna hear the let me see about this stuff. Let me look at those steps I want to just skip over here and maybe this control thing is I was..
"I was gone. And I recognized something in me recognize that I had been using sexual behavior in the same way that people use substances. So I was starting to put these things together that I had been using it. But here's the thing. It wasn't working anymore. The numbing out that I had been experiencing from it or the boost from it. And for me, we'll probably get into this later, but it was all about power. Sex addiction has nothing to do with sex. Not for me, not for anybody. We all have different reasons. We gravitate towards it, but for me it was power. And I started recognizing that wasn't real power. I was not getting my power back by trying to take the power of others. Side note, that doesn't work. And so it was like, if this thing, that I hate, but that's been helping me isn't even helping me anymore. What do I have left? What am I doing here? And I couldn't connect with people. I was lying to everyone. Nobody knew me. You know, we all say it, if anybody really knew me, what? There wouldn't really like me. That's right, you better believe it. I didn't like me. So I was gonna like me, you know? All of that came into this notion that me being dead was a way cooler plan. It was the only thing that made sense to me. And so I started prepping. I was in motion for my suicide. And we say a voice, but I didn't hear it. I felt it. I felt it but it had words. And I can't tell you what that means. That's elusive, but that was the experience. And it was this notion like, okay, if I have been using this behavior. And things that fall in the realm of sex addiction are vast. There's a lot of things to choose from. None of them work, by the way. Don't take that as an invocation to like, oh, there's a lot of options. No. None of them work. I recognize, okay, I'm using these things in the same way that people use substances. Does that mean that there can be addiction included in this? And if that's true, well, they got solutions over there for that substance stuff. Could bear possibly be would I be pioneering this? Maybe I'll be the first one. We laugh, but I have people contact me today that go, I'm the only one you need Jace. You and me were out here, you know, you're the only person I've heard it talked about. And I'm like, this is a $1 million industry dealing with sex addiction. You think they built that for you and me? We better get on these healing modalities, 'cause we're gonna have all these people out of business. No, come on, team. Millions. Millions of people are dealing with sex addiction..
"You so much for coming on and doing this episode with me. It is such a pleasure to get to meet you and have this conversation. So welcome to the show. Happy. Thank you very much. I'm super excited. You're laughing. I get teased about my howdy, all the time, even online folks. And you know, I think of it like high with a hug. I love that that's good. It's high with a hug, you know? And it's been part of my life for so long, and it just naturally came out in my videos that I started, and then it'd be kitten. Now it's just part of life. So howdy? Yes, indeed. Thank you for having me. I'm super psyched to get to be part of this today. Yeah, for sure. Why don't we start with just taking a minute and let everybody know a little bit about you and what you do. Wonderful. This is such it's becoming an increasingly difficult question to answer. The what do you do question? So I'm going to start by telling you, I have a big vision. To have an unconventional holistic healing space in a rural setting that weaves in healing and thriving, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and environmentally. So bringing in the earth, the body coming back to a community setting. And I really have found that a sense of safety, a perception of safety, of course we know is required for any kind of healing and a catapult us out of this outdated, way long-lasting idea of survival, right? Like, how are you doing on surviving? Yeah, we're done with that. It's 2022. We need to be thriving as a society. And there's so many blocks to that. And the big part of that is that we've not woven in all of the components of healing and thriving into this process. So for recovery from addiction, trauma, early childhood adverse experiences, whatever we want to call it. So I have a big vision to have a rural space that can be used for long-term and short term living as well as retreats and all kinds of different things. So as part of that, I do many things to work in that direction, of course. I'm a speaker and facilitator. In person and online, I am also, I work on a farm. I'm a farmhand. Yes, I am learning how to work in intimate ways with mother nature, how to run a homestead, how to be off grid. So I do that. That's what I was doing before this. I was a sweaty farmer right before her showering and coming on your podcast. So I do that. And I'm also working to be a spiritual leader as well, interfaith, inner spiritual leader. So that I can run a non cult, people always like, is it gonna be a cult because you'd be great at that? And I'm like, I believe way too much an independent thinking. Yeah. And in being your own person, like radical self acceptance and authenticity is way too deep as part of my methodology. So it won't be a cult, but it's going to require all of these components of being a community participant and leader as part of a council. And of course, working with the earth and a lot of different healing practices as well that go far beyond traditional healing and recovery. So I have a lot of things that I do in that regard. And I'm in pre-production. I'm a podcast right now as well. So we'll add host to that. Oh, I love that. You'll love podcasting..

I'm not afraid to make phone calls in to find the right person for the job and to find the right person to answer the questions that i have. I think that's the part of the reputation that i feel. Which kind of gives me a different perspective Being a woman in the military rewind ho-how while my husband would we are in a transportation company and a support battalion and then we both moved to the forward support company. An infantry battalion sadry's all males up until very recently there's very few females still in the infantry so i've always had to assert myself and make sure that i'm respected in that battalion and and taken seriously so built this reputation that i'm reliable in. I am not afraid to get things done. I'm not afraid to stand up for myself. Wherever i'm at in a i think that's how we allot Very successful huron leadership in my career. I guess i've i've learned that you know i. I've stood up for myself announce that now i've reputation. I i can do the job and be responsible in a lot of leaders and other unit members. Look up to me. Four for answers us really great. And it's all about advocating for yourself and speaking up right and also taking on the hard job so i went to a classical. Vc vehicle crew valley leader so in the country especially in the stryker infantry you have to be qualified every year in order to fire weapons off of your striker using the remote weapon system the are. Ws there's a range that you have to go to a year and qualified just like your individual weapon but you have to use the stryker vehicle as your weapon so there's the remote will joystick cannell. Unlike know how to use the nadine ee on these things and now how to tactical about it as well i went to this course to become the evaluator for all these crews in i learned a lot about tactics a lot about the injury going through that course in. I think there is a little bit of a nervousness in the battalion. I became the galleons. Evaluator so i would evaluate everybody in the talion to make sure that they are all tied for to be. You know goner and they were a little bit nervous because there was email on. They weren't sure how the other male infantry guys we're going to receive mike criticism especially i failed them. If you qualify. And what i found was i was very intelligent and i spoke intelligently to these guys and i was very helpful in teaching them the correct tactics before they went out to qualified and available to guide and lead them to be successful and then they respected me like a whole bunch more on. They came to me with questions instead of going teen leaders. Which comes a little bit of animosity but everybody you know started to respect me as actually intelligent in tactical you know have a technical knowledge base. Yeah 'cause you're you have the expertise and you didn't just keep it to yourself. You shared it with them and you try that. Set them up for success and so they trusted you because you had already again that first step. Yeah and i and i really like the guys that aside the fact that i was a woman i wasn't in the of the tree and i wasn't you know a grunt out on the Out on in the field ranked Even though those things that they shared amongst themselves they respected the fact that i was able to teach them and guide them and the care. If i was a girl or a guy or whatever they listen to mainly sought at my advice yeah when i deployed unemployment infantry unit and i had a similar experience where they were like your call me the precious cargo not but they saw me as the because i was civil engineer and the expertise in that field and they knew that my job was to go and inspect the buildings and their job was to keep me safe and do all the tactical stuff which is exactly what it was and it didn't matter that i was a female. I mean that's why was the precious cargo. 'cause i mean that was like their nickname for me to make i like my call sign That they gave me. But i always felt respected and like part of the team and they did their job and i did mine and we worked really well together. That's one of the things that are really loved bouts military that we all work as a team and i don't know very few instances of any tort type of sexism racism or anything i think in my experience everybody just accepts. Everybody as they are end uses. Everyone's strengths in acknowledged weaknesses in. We work graders attained together. Military is really good at looking past those things probably still have some issues here and there. But it's good that in your experience you've had such positive experience rating so is there anything else from your time and that you wanted to talk about or we wrap it up. I think we touched on pretty much. Everything yeah. I feel like we covered pretty much everything. I like that you talked about all the different schools that you've done the different ways that you've served and kind of shows like all the different opportunities and the flexibility in the way that you could serve and the guard and an you barely touched on having a civilian job which is what most people typically think of so. It's really interesting. But i have one last question. Which is what advice. Would you give to young women who are considering military service or wanna. Keep the recruiter in me out of this. So of course. I'm going to suggest any missile any female academia research looking every branch. The are what you wanna do in. Don't be afraid to take the lead. Don't be afraid to challenge yourself. It's one contract in. The military is not very much time. Six years is only about seven percent of your life so it's not much in. It's a fantastic experience to have to grow your confidence to grow your your knowledge base degree career leadership skills. It's you can't go wrong in the military. I believe in. I think it is. If you're able to absolutely hate that jump takeaway challenge yourself and give it your all. And i love the quote by joseph cambell which is when you come to a great chasm in life jump. It isn't that far you're saints. But yeah that's a really. I think that joining the military camp phil scary and few women reach out and they're like i'm nervous. Does that mean. I shouldn't do it and i'm like no. That means that you should do this. Being afraid isn't a bad thing. It's immunised a challenge. It's gonna be hard. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't do it or that. You can't do it. i'm so just chump and you'll be amazed leave new. There's lots of people they will catch you at the other end. Yes that's great.

Food is not correct, cleaning the house is incorrect. Laying out of his laundry isn't correct. Washing the laundry, whatever it was, wasn't correct. So there's a bunch of screaming bunch of Yellen in those videos on YouTube about this. Actually, you recorded some of the incidences for his doctors because they wanted to see, I was trying to work with his doctors. Wow. That's scary how something like that could come about and how that could be. But you know, you were destroyed by that, but you used that as a growth step. How did you do that? How did you do that? I think what it is is a mechanism. I was born with or raised with. At least. I went for through a very traumatic childhood up until the age of four, 5, somewhere through their kindergarten age. And my mother was in a domestic violence relationship and that transferred over to me as a small child. And then you go to school in your bullet in school because you're quiet, you're shy, you're scared of your own shadow when you live through the hell that I started with. So going to this ex-husband, I was like, no, I'm not a victim. I'm not playing this game though. So where was the drawing line? Where did you draw the line in the sand that you couldn't live in this relationship? When he told me. Yeah. And physical violence is one of the worst and choking is one of the worst because it doesn't show any scars. And that is a tough one, because you carry your beaten, but you don't show any scars for it. So here they're thinking you're a liar, your Friends, your family.

Couldn't figure out what I was sick with, that I just knew I was sick. But April of 2011, I was 90 pounds, could barely walk, couldn't keep food down, in and out of the hospital. Couldn't find anything wrong with me. If you know doctors, they were, they love running tests. Oh, I know that too well. When I was diagnosed with ALS, I had every test known to man, including cat tests that didn't even exist yet. Test crazy. Did they are? They were run every test imaginable. Until they find an answer, even if they can't find an answer. Well, the problem was, I wasn't getting food, so I seen a lot of gastrointestinal doctors. So they're like, we can't find anything wrong with you. So let's do a brain scan, just we're running out of tests to do basically. So what they found is called an AVM. Similarity to it is a aneurysm. But it actually is a massive blood vessels that have no capillaries. So you go from rain to artery, but mine was a size of the circumference of a golf ball. Oh my God. And it was leaking. Yeah, of course. That is known as that is known as a berry aneurysm. Isn't that hilarious? Here you're talking to Barry. My first name. And here we're talking about a berry aneurysm. There we go. So that's funny, right? So we do a medical emergency. I get life flighted from one hospital to another, and the surgeon looks at me. Oh, this is an emergency. I'll take care of it in two weeks when I come back from vacation. And guess what? It blew. Three days later, I have a stroke. Yes, just yes. Isn't that a bad thing that happened? And I'm so sorry that happened, but we can't go back, can we? No, we can't go back,.

"Anything helps explain why majority of white people support a political party and ideology that is bankrupting. The country that is leading to us being unable to handle the pandemic all of these dysfunctions that so many of us are scratching their heads. About why is it. That america can't seem to get its act together. Why can we. Not as i say in the first line of the book. Why does it seem. We can't have nice fix. And of course i mean. I loved that you started with that right. I mean it's true right. don't you feel it. What is going on. Why are we so seemingly unable to just get our act together to do some of the basic things that a well that a high functioning society should be able to do And on this journey. That i took the right the some of us it. It became clear and clearly with every step that racism is the common denominator in our most vaccine public problems. I want to go into some of that work. You did to people And also of course continuing your analysis. So i want to circle back to how white people operate in the american framework. But let's talk a little bit about janice and isaiah tomlin. who are they. Why did you talk to them. What did you learn from them. I'm so glad that you're talking about this. John a number of us so few people wanna talk about the financial crisis chapter in my book. I wonder why. So the first issue as i said that i really cut my teeth on policy was the issue of debt and that gave me a front row seat to the early phases of what would become the great financial crash. Great recession I for the book talked to a couple named janez tomlin who were a really emblematic. Black hormone couple who were targeted by completely unscrupulous mortgage brokers who had a corrupt kickback. Deal with one lender and sold the tomlin's a refinance loan on their existing mortgage that they have never missed a payment on that was had an astronomical double digit interest rate and all of these hidden fees and it was just really emblematic of what happened really in the late. Nineteen ninety s and early. Two thousands deregulated lenders. Who were testing out. Can what can we get away with. How much can we charge. How many tricks and traps can we bear in these mortgages. Who's gonna stop us if we start first in the communities that are the least protected and the least respected black and brown communities and it was so important for me to tell this story because during the crisis you had this narrative that it was actually government being too soft basically encouraging to coddling of these minority homebuyers who you know were were trying to reach for houses that they shouldn't have been able to afford when the facts are the majority of these loans. Subprime loans were not going to get people into houses that they were stretching for they were going to be who already had houses. They were refinancing stripping equity out of existing homeowners. And that's how you end up with a story that to me is so emblematic of american systemic racism. Today obviously black folks get targeted and hurt. I and worse the black. Homeownership rate still has not recovered. It is back to what it was before. The fair housing act. It is a crime. It is a tragedy of epic proportions and also whose life was not touched by the great recession. You had eight million jobs lost nineteen trillion dollars in home equity in law savings if.

"N Y C I'm David first. When President Trump was elected. Four years ago, a number of local women were inspired to run for office as Democrats. Kimberly Roberts, a first generation immigrant from Jamaica, was one of them. Attended a campaign training program on the day he was sworn in. Four years later. W N Y. C is Bridget Bergen caught up with Roberts and a couple of other politically active black women as a new administration steps into power. She first got training to run for office volunteered for a couple of local campaigns. Now Kimberly Roberts is working in philanthropy focused on the connection between all that's happening in the need for deep investments in black land movement organizing civic engagement voting on Gwai. It's important, meaning the same issues that prompted her to get involved in 2017. Remain is present for her now as they were then made more urgent by the pandemic. The death of George Floyd and her fear that these four years were just a preview of something worse. I have a lot of Anxiety and apprehension around Whether or not we've learned enough in the last four years, while her feelings about the incoming administration are mixed, she's inspired to see the first woman of color as vice president have in common that there is amazing, she says. What happened on January 6th was a backlash to the progress that's been made in this country. And the fact that it happened on the same day that Democrats won control of the Senate. Thanks largely to the work of Stacey Abrams. Another black woman was no accident and the female pisses me off the most. Is that we? We constantly bear that burden and do that work because we know no one else is going to do it and that if we allow our democracy to crumble and slip into God knows what we are the first to go. We got this sacrificial lands. So we do this for ourselves because we know that we don't have any other choice. That's a sentiment that Afia Adam MENSA knows Well, she's head of community voices heard a Social Justice organization. She's worked since 2016 to understand the issues that matter most to black women voters across New York state and to help them organize. I'm both in all of work done in Georgia and Arizona and other places, but also similarly, a time gobsmacked and annoyed that folks think that in the state of New York similar work doesn't need to happen. Since the fall of 2019 c V H has surveyed nearly 4000 black women across New York state about the issues that matter most to them. The effort is part organizing and part data gathering. Issues like health care, affordable housing, criminal justice and family care topped the list at a MENSA says she makes the effort to link those concerns to the act of voting. I'm part of the folks who are voting with a clarity that a vote you know, contrary to the rhetoric is not going to change your whole life. It's a starting place. All right. It is a starting place that requires us to talk larger about in the work continues for money. Cardio. Part of the work is deciding how to make the most difference. And whether she wants to run for office again. I don't know. I've been asked, but I'm not. I'm not quite sure she went to campaign training school Four years ago with Kimberly Roberts. She lost a bid for a seat on the Nassau County Legislature in 2019 to an incumbent who took a plea deal in a domestic violence case. She says the bar for women of color to achieve elected office still feels too high. It's just the same question that we face. Why are you qualified? What makes you qualified? It's not good enough that you're an attorney, Hardy old says. Seeing someone who looks like her in the office of vice president does give her comfort. Maybe another jolt of inspiration like Harass her. Parents are first generation immigrants. Her mother's Dominican. Her father is Jamaican. My great grand parents were from India and Pakistan, and they migrated to Jamaica. So yes, it's It is an incredible feeling. It's it's indescribable, and it might just be enough to prompt her to run again with another primary set for this June. Wijnbergen W. N. Y C news..
