"Our guest today is Justin Brush enough from Hacker fund. It sounds bad. It's good. We're we're here to teach kids how to program and we're here to rear appropriate the definition of hacking. You had things together. You know. The founder executive director is called the Hacker Fund. Um What's with the outfit? Yeah, way We're well, It's not required thing. But when we throw a gigantic events, events similar to what's what's called a hackathon. And if you're not familiar before the hackathon is, it's kind of like a 24 hour collaborative coding competition with the positive things. That other thing you're hacking things together. You're taking different technologies. Hardware stop for your hacking solutions to problems together. So what is the hacker fun? Do we're mentorship organization? So we have all these mentors who are from Apple. Google Microsoft Space X Snapchat, and they run around teaching kids. And we supplement the teachers in the classroom. We do after school programs weekend hackathon summer programs basically, just being the role models for the kids, too, Because when computer science is taught in school, you know you hit the wall, but the wall hits back. And sometimes it's as uh As the George Harrison would say, I get by with the help of my friends, right? You two have a role model there who's who's helping you. And so that's that's what we do. We cultivate these role models and connect them to the school's, um, you find that the kids that you mentor, help out that I love your passion about this and ages of what K through the U. K through 12. Okay, the majority or high school right now, Right? And you find it there? I mean, right now, you got no computers, right? There's no choice anymore. Got another technology. Member When I started when I was in computer class, it took all those cards to make, like one word. Yeah, it even even later, like computers really didn't hit until the nineties believe that some of these schools are still stuck in the stone ages. So what do we need to do when you bring in people who are the ones that are that are actually creating the technologies to inspire the kids? When when a teacher is tenured, for example, at a school and they're told to teach computer science and Obama and in Congress create provisions and policies to give them more money. It almost becomes with the blind leading the blind, and that's the problem because the kids suffer and when you bring in professionals were the ones that are that have been in the kid's shoes and are now at Google or apple or space sex launching rockets and then have them on drones. Those of the people that the kids they're looking up to, and the teacher needs to be able to facilitate that. And the problem that we've seen is too many schools of spending budgets on Ipads. They're spending and on computers that the teachers don't know how to use. You can't boot. A text editor is just bricks in the back of the classroom. You consider yourself an entrepreneur. Yes, I'm a social entrepreneur. Okay, so one of the three traits that you have to have to do that. To be a social entrepreneur. Relentless. Um it's really important to be relentless because I learned this from my experience that martial arts who knows that USA national team going out and you're by yourself getting punched. Right. And you have your coach in the corner who is like your board of directors, your advisers. But you are the CEO fighting and you have to make decisions and being relentless and being able to overcome challenges when you're on your own. That is really important for a CEO, because you're no one's gonna love your company or your mission more than you are because you created it. And this the second trade is in my line of work. You have to understand that you're optimizing for the For legacy You're optimizing for I community and for impact, not necessarily profits. If there is no exit for nonprofit entrepreneur you don't get bought out. Your profit is when the kid comes up, it seems and says, Thank you for not giving up on thank you for teaching the inspiring me and I know Java script, right? That's the moment that's the product. And when a mentor says, I want to help kids That that is something that if you're interested in doing social entrepreneurship, you have to understand that you're going before going. A lot of things that may be your peers are are are doing and you see them. Starting similar ventures, air ventures and other different Democrats like different verticals. Just understand it. You're swimming in your lane and just you see, like in swimming. We were taught. Never look to the right of your left. You want to get the best time Look straight. Look down. Stay in your lane staying in estimates the life goal to Justin Presidents our guest. How do you get people to be social entrepreneurs and not go for the money? Well, A lot of people forget that nonprofits are businesses as well. They have to make they have to make money. You know, there's there's nonprofits that generate a lot of revenue and you have to incentivize people. The way that for profit business does is just not. There's this, not shareholders. You can't give equity. That's the one the biggest difference. And you're motivated by wanting to inspire people, and so That that that alone is, is one of the biggest perils that for nonprofit founder recruiting the best talent you're fighting with a lot of the other companies to make of amazing benefits packages, But at the same time, the people who get into number the nonprofit scene are specific type of person. Exactly. And when you see them you, you know we're looking at one. Now we are here to inspire we inspire, inform, and we are connecting.

"Right. Joining us now? Daniel Turner, founder, executive director of power, the future outlining this big, massive mis take getting away from energy independence and the Keystone XL pipeline, you know, Okay. Thies, radical green groups and the Paris accords. Now this article about me just takes me to task. Hannity says that the disaster week What is he talking about? I'm like Yeah. If I work for the Keystone XL pipeline. I think I'd be a little ticked off anyway. Daniel. Thank you for being with us. Thank you for having me on son and also with a Steve Moore, economist author of Trump A nomics inside the America first plan to revive our economy. Daniel, you said something that really fascinated you said What's fascinating about the keystone is how unfasten ating the project actually is. And you talked about it's marvel of engineering an extraordinary accomplishment of human mechanical skill. 1200 Mile pipeline from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf Coast carrying crude to be refined. Uncredible infrastructure project that created a lot of jobs. Um, now I know, you know, Biden is claiming all there's going to be very few jobs that were lost here and people to judge say, no. These jobs. You know, we want them replace with good union jobs. It's easy for him to say he just got a new job. Yeah, it is remarkable to see the lack of empathy that Joe Biden and people to judge have showed for the thousands of people who have lost their jobs overnight. Right? There are married couples right now, who are figuring out how to move forward. They have lost their sole source of employment, and they're in these red states states like Nebraska and the Dakotas. Except Joe Biden, Quite frankly, doesn't care about and with on Lee visit if he needed their electoral votes, Mayor Pete said the priority is fulfilling the president's promise on climate change. There is a plan for the Guatemalan immigrants who were crossing the border. There was a plan for everybody. But there is no plan for these thousands of American energy workers who are losing their job. They are just told to go pound sand. And that is absolutely immoral that this president is doing that to these people. And by the way, the estimates are, you know thousands of temporary jobs, additional jobs directly in indirect jobs associated with it about $2 billion of wages we're talking about Stephen Moore. I even noticed the Canadians was a Bloomberg piece out today that the leader of Canada's oil Heartland, calling this decision to cancel Keystone XL on insult. They're urging the Prime Minister Trudeau to consider retaliation in this case and anyway there, Premier Jason Kennedy said in a press conference. It's an insult. And said Trudeau. She could demand the U. S administration sit down and discuss the project in the context of environmental climate security policy, and if that fails, Canada should be willing to impose meaningful punitive measures against his biggest trading partner. Well, we could see they're reasserting their muscle against America. Well, you know, Sean was struck by that quote from the by administration, saying What we want is good. Palin paying union jobs. That's exactly what these are. You know, I've spent a lot of time in the oil patch in United States in the Dakotas and in Texas and even up in Canada, and these are not $15 an hour job. These are $15 our jobs. These are jobs that pay. You know, for the truckers, The pipe fitters, the construction workers. They're hard hat jobs that pay many times over $100,000 a year. So these are exactly the kind of uh you know, good paying union jobs it that Biden promised that he would create rather than take away by the way. Shame on you know some of these unions. If you use actually endorsed by, Did you know that Trump on me? Is that how crazy is that? I mean, I mean, the cavalier. Basically was it was Buddha Judge and Biden Toe Workers on Keystone XL Drop dead. I mean, there's just don't care. And when you think about our relationship with Canada, they pretty much told Canada's shove it and that's going to impact their economy and but he's giving into the environmental extremists. As we all said he would. What is the impact of the climate accords? The Paris climate accord, which actually says that China is a developing nation, they don't put the same restrictions on China. The biggest polluter. Well, it is remarkable that China was exempt from this, Andre. What United States has done in this administration is surpassed the goals of the climate accords without being in it under the Trump administration. So now that we are joining it for no apparent reason we're also on the hook now for billions of dollars. That will go to a human climate slush fund. Who was spending this money? What are their projects? What oversight is there? Why trust the U N with billions of taxpayer American dollars. So again, it's his globalist kobol that punishes America will impose false sanctions that false mandates on America When we've achieved the spirit of the accords, which is lower our missions. We did that under President Trump, and that was never celebrated by the environment. The left, you know, I can't go out like Steve is gonna make another point. You know, you talk about Canada. Being, you know, loser here. Clearly, they are because Canada and the United States account and United States have more on gas and coal than just about any other, You know region of the world. We have more than you know, Saudi Arabia. We have more of this than than Russia and another's other countries, but the big winner here from both the United States Entering the reentering the worst treaty in the history, the United States of Paris climate Accord and in this continuing the DEA's up infrastructure projects like the pipelines is Right now. I mentioned this on your show. I think last month right now is we're sitting here There was a $12 billion pipeline that's being built from from Siberia and and Russia to China. And so I mean, what's wrong with this picture? Sean, the Russian China Two biggest enemies are building a pipeline so they can get all of the energy that China needs at low prices. And we can't build pipelines here in the United States. Meanwhile, while they're doing pipelines, the other thing people have to realize is China right now is building we don't know exactly, but somewhere in the neighborhood, 50 to 200 new coal plants. Every time we shut down a coal plant, the United States China built 10 of them. How is that reducing climate change? I mean, that's such a great point. And by the way, having our carbon emissions levels gone down in recent years, wait up. Wait up, Wait up absolutely countries that are in the better in the you know that are in the Paris climate and none of them that way. Of the 30 major countries. They've been in that climate change of agreement. 28 of them haven't reached there turned it. Yeah, And you're going to say Daniel do remarkable thing about what President Trump achieved and got very little credit for on the global community or especially in environmental community is lowering our missions while also making America the world's largest oil and gas producer. We did not discover any new oil field. We did not invent any new any new technology. What President Trump didn't he allowed the free markets to do what it does best. That means that potential was always in America. For every single president going back in history. All that potential of America was there, and they wouldn't let it come to the market. President Trump unleashed the power of the free market, and it does what it always does, which is produced more for less while improving the status of the average person. I just I found the statement of Buddha Judge in particular this hearing with Ted Cruz. I mean it literally a mike. Oh, my gosh. You really don't care. I mean, he p put he put Look if you're working, and we know that there how many? How many millions of people that have been displaced in terms of jobs as a result of, you know, rigid government shutdowns, especially in places like New York and California and elsewhere. A zoo result of covert 19. Okay, Now we're gonna have illegal immigrants coming in, and they're gonna They're going to be made legal and they'll be the their path to legalization. No more building the border wall, putting handcuffs on ice. They can't even do their job anymore and enforce the laws of the land. As per Biden s. So we're gonna have more competition for the jobs that do become available as hopefully one day we get to the point where the country opens up completely. Maybe late spring and early summer, Steve Moore..

"Our guest today is Justin Brezhnev from Hacker fund. It sounds bad. It's good. We're we're here to teach kids how to program and we had to appropriate the definition of hacking. You have things together. You know. The founder executive director is called the Hacker Fund. With the way we're well, it's not required thing. But when we throw gigantic events, events similar to what was called a hackathon, and if you're not familiar before the Hackathon is kind of like a 24 hour collaborative coding competition with the positive things that you're talking things together, you're taking different technologies. Hardware software. You're hacking solutions to problems together. So what was the hack of fun? Do we're mentorship organization? So we have all these mentors were from Apple.

And sometimes it's as As the George Harrison would say, I get by with the help of my friends, right? You need to have a role model there who's who's helping you. And so that's that's what we do. We cultivate these role models and connect them to the schools. You find. It's the kids that you mentor, help out. I love your passion about this and ages of what K through. We do K through 12. Okay, the majority or high school right now and you find is there? I mean, right now, you got no computers, right? There's no choice anymore Technology. Remember when I started when I was in computer class. It took all those cards to make, like one word. Even later computers within him until nineties. Some of these schools are still stuck in the stone ages. So what do we need to do when you bring in people who are the ones that are that are actually creating the technologies to inspire the kids when I was a teacher?

Yes, I'm a social entrepreneur of the three traits that you have to have to do that. To be a social entrepreneur.

"Justin. From Hacker fund. It sounds bad. It's good. We're we're here to teach kids how to program and we had to appropriate the definition of hacking. You have things together. You know. The founder executive director is called the Hacker Fund. With the way we're well, it's not required thing. But when we throw gigantic events events similar to what's what's called a hackathon familiar before the hack A thon is it's kind of like a 24 hour collaborative code in competition with the positive things that thing you're packing things together. You're taking different technologies. Hardware software. You're hacking solutions to problems together. So what was the hack of fun? Do we're mentorship organization? So we have all these mentors were from Apple. Google Microsoft Space six Snatch and run around teaching kids. And we supplement the teachers in the classroom. We drafted school programs weekend hackathon summer programs basically, just being the role models for the kids, too, Because when computer science is taught in school, you know you hit the wall. The wall hits back. And sometimes it's as As a George Harrison would say, I get by with the help of my friends, right? You need to have a role model there who's who's helping you. And so that's that's what we do. We cultivate these role models and connect them to the schools. You finance the kids that you mentor. Help that. I love your passion about this and ages of what K through K through 12. Okay, the majority or high school right now, all right. And you find it there. I mean, right now, you got no computers, right choice anymore Technology. Remember when I started when I was in computer class. It took all those cards to make like one word, even even later. Computers within him until nineties. Believe some of these schools are still stuck in the stone ages. So what do we need to do? Will you bring in people who are the ones that are that are actually creating the technologies to inspire the kids when it when a teacher is tenured, for example, at a school and they're told to teach computer science and Obama and Congress create provision and policies to give them more money. It almost becomes, with the blind, leading the blind and and that's the problem because the kids suffer and when you bring in professionals were the ones that have been in the kid's shoes and are now a Google or apple or space, six launching rockets and them on drones. Those are the people that the kids they're looking up to you and the teacher needs to be able to facilitate That. And the problem that we've seen is too many schools or spending budgets on ipads or spending it on computers that the teachers don't know how to use. You can't boot a text editor. It's just bricks in the classroom. You consider yourself an entrepreneur. Yes, I'm social experiment of the three traits that you have to have to do that. To be a social entrepreneur. Relentless is really important to be relentless because I learned this from my experience that martial arts who knows that USA national team going out and you're by yourself getting punched. Right. And you have your coach in the corner. Who was like your board of directors your advisors. But you are the CEO. Fighting and you have to make decisions and being relentless and being able to overcome challenges when you're on your own. That is really important for a CEO, because you're no one's gonna love your company or your mission more than you are because you created it. And the second trait is in my line of work. You have to understand that you're optimizing for for legacy you're optimizing for Community and for impact, not necessarily profits. There is no exit for a nonprofit entrepreneur You don't get bought out A profit is when the kid comes up and says Thank you for not keeping up. Thank you for teaching me inspiring me, Tyler. I know Java script, right? That's the moment that's the product. And when a mentor says, I want to help kids That that is something that if you're interested in doing social entrepreneurship, you have to understand that you're going before going a lot of things that may be your peers are doing and you see them. Starting similar ventures, adventures and other different Democrat like different verticals. Just understand that you're swimming in your lane and just see like in swimming. We were taught. Never look to the right or left. You're going to get the best time Look straight. Look down. Stay in your lane. Samantha. Life goal to Justin. Presidents are guests.

"Well if you're a fan of tiger king a you know the time dri sorted tale Joe Exotic well spoiler alert if you haven't made it through That bio pic yet but he's now sitting in jail Having been convicted of federal murder for hire and animal abuse charges enter the wild animal. Sanctuary in Qian's Berg. They have been the salvation for so many exotic creatures thirty nine tigers three bears and that were held at that. Oklahoma and sanctuary made famous by that net flicks Docu series well. Number of them are now enjoying their new digs at the wild animal sanctuary in Kuenssberg. Journ joined this morning by founder Executive Director of the Wild Animal Sanctuary Pack Craig. Good Morning Pat. How are you I? Am All things considered doing? Well how are you everyone safe and sound? Yeah absolutely good good so tell us a little bit about the back story here because again you have been a sanctuary for so many exotic creatures around the world that have been abused. Yeah and the thing trae here. Keenest bird We've been at this location twenty five years but you know operation for forty years and so we've seen this entire evolution of exotic animals in the private sector basis like you know. Joe Exotics Roadside Zoo and many many other places throughout the country like that and so over the years. Here's that's pretty much. What we've done is rescued animals from either private owners that tried to have pets or Really bad roadside zoos. Like Joe's or many other really bizarre places that A Lion Tiger bear ends up. And and so this is what we do on a regular basis. I group of one thousand nine tigers came to the wildlife animal sanctuary on November eleventh Twenty seventeen so are they all residents now. Yeah they're all here and doing well. And this was two groups because obviously rescuing twenty tigers is a lot let alone thirty nine tigers so it was two different Rescue operations where we went down in November and went back in December and got another load from Joe's place For those that are familiar with the story from watching Tiger T- His husband accidentally shot himself and died. So Joe is in a pretty Depressed state at the time and so the first nineteen tigers were part of a legal case on Joe is involved in and so those had the court ordered those to be taken away and the next twenty were. Joe is saying to the time that he wanted to close his operation. Get Out and so. This was just weeks after Travis's husband died And so he took the next twenty hour when the intention was for us to keep going back and taking you know loads of animals out until the place was but within three weeks. This is the first time I've been dying or is this second husband. I should say he was already in a relationship with another guy and married him shortly after that so he kind of bounced back at that point and then reneged on the whole closing so it was unfortunate that we couldn't see more but we were inside that we were able to get to thirty nine tigers out of there just an enormous undertaking. I mean what does that look like in transporting that amount of animals from Oklahoma to Colorado. Yeah it's a different giant undertaking and we have all the equipment vehicles and air conditioned trailers. And you know Health professionals and everybody they go on these rescues to T- take animals like this from All sorts of places and so taking twenty nine or twenty nineteen. I'm at took numerous trailers and trucks and trailers and a whole litany of people that were staff and medical people and everybody else to get there in one of the biggest challenges was Joe ran is roadside Jew. And so he wouldn't let anybody come in to get the Tigers until seven. Am and one of them all out by ninety and when he opened his gates to the public so we had two hours or less to get twenty tigers zoo. That was a a triple challenge. Right there I was thinking. I know it's a murder of crows lion. So how do you integrate the Lions into the community? But you know when we heard about we needed to do it. We only had a week. Or Two's noted so obviously everything was scrambled but we dedicated forty acres to building A number of habitats for these these Thirty nine tigers and so they were already in groups down Gw exotic which Joe's park and so that helped us as far as getting when we brought him back. Here they were already in social groupings. That could live in habitat together So we built a number of different habitats on that forty acres and then brought the animals back and then went through the rehabilitation stage. Where they get used to going into bigger spaces then no small cages. They were handing But now they live in those habitats and they're very happy. Seven Twelve Thirteen Ten K. Aka thirteen ten K. A. K. A. Dot Com Craig Founder Executive Director of the wild animal sanctuary in Kuenssberg. Now of course as a result of the spread of Cova nineteen The wild animal sanctuary now temporarily closed but the need is still great. Yeah that's the thing is you know I don't all nonprofits and other businesses are suffering from people not being able to go to work or or businesses not being able to operate in for us We are open to education on a normal basis and people can come and learn about these animals and where they came from but with this Kobe in the state mandate to stay at home. You know we obviously closed. And but what really really hit us. More than anything was A lot of are donated. Food comes from big box retail outlets and so when people you know kind of Panic and rushed to the stores and bought everything and it was that really impacted our Donations that we would normally get from stores and so that helped kind of feel the need for us to buy more food. Which then have you seen costs more for budget with people donating Alaska's? They weren't really sure how long this is going to take. And the uncertainty adult things so between less donations and having to buy more food It's been a big impact for us. Only now when I reached out to you yesterday to set this up for this morning on news was just breaking that tiger at the Bronx Zoo in New York City tested positive for covert nineteen might be the first confirmed case of an animal being infected with the virus in the nation. It's a four year old female From Malaysia three other tigers three African lions also developed a dry cough and they believe that it was transmitted from the employees at the Bronx. Zoo obviously something of concern for you. Yeah so anything that could threaten. Our animals is a concern. It's obviously very early. In this case it was just broke yesterday. So you know we did get information from the CDC in the USDA about you know how they look at this case and you know there's so many unknowns at this point They still have to do a lot more testing but for us. You know our collection is in a very rural area away from people in from the CDN and the public is ever allowed down near the animals. Here relegated up on walkways and things like that but that in general even our Amil cares team. has already been practicing. Social Disney king. 'cause they're out working far apart from each other and they do all the protocols to keep everything clean and Shays and sanitized and so there is a chance that this could really End Up being in animal populations around the world but at this early stage and I think that Anybody really knows what the answer is. But we're definitely doing everything we can to make sure that the Tigers and the other animals here protective as well as the keepers in the people who work here so bad how can we support your work at the wild animal sanctuary in Kuenssberg. And I'll tell you what if you've never been there. It is a glorious amazing experience. One that will change your life thank you. That's very kind to Definitely you know if you if people are Able to donate. That'd be an amazing help for us. Obviously we have lots of expenses for food and and taking care of the animals and utilities and we still have to pay for fuel to go pick up the food things like that so donations help the most but people telling other people about our work and going to our website wild animal sanctuary dot org Just so that people can learn more about the problem. The Tiger team Documentary was a great help in one way that it exposed A lot more people to it. There are a lot of problems with this With captive wildlife in the in the United States but at the same time. There's a lot more to the story about. The abuse of the animal suffering and so education is a big part brush. Craig Executive Director Founder Wild Animal Sanctuary in Kuenssberg. Thank you for having such a heart for these exotic creatures..

What's so bad about being the founder, executive director, and board chair of a non-profit?

"What is bad about being the founder E. D. and board chair at the same time you're this and I I don't understand it doesn't it just make things easier for everyone? Are there any positives to the structure. Okay so I'm GONNA be really snarky here but yeah if you are a a control freak who wants all the power then yes. There is a lot of positives to being all three right. I mean I'm sorry to be like petty about it but like that's why why that's a difference between like a non-profit structure and a for profit structure like you look at just the idea of a public charity like you are governed by the public public. You are more than one person right and my guess is if you really care about a cause or a mission enough that you founded the organization you want more people people round to like help champion that because that's going to just help with everything from more money to more growth more impact and all that stuff so so I mean anyway I yeah I think that Trifecta idea is not sustainable. It's not best practice. And at the end of the day it puts way too much control role and influence in one person's hands. Yep I agree and I just want to point out like we've got three titles here founder. Ed Inboard share founder. Isn't a thing now. So so it's cool that that you came up with an idea and you created an organization about an awesome pat yourself on the back giving yourself the title founder and I you know I'm going to insult a bunch of people that have done this but giving yourself title of founder is just self-congratulatory. Yes so you can be two of those things you can be founder any D. or you can be founder and board share. You can't be in board chair that's just not not. It's just not ethically right because you're basically your own boss and if your own boss you need a for profit you can't be in a nonprofit and here's the thing I know some of our listeners. Probably you're going. It was started by nonprofit and I was the was the board chair and that happens when you first start out. It's not like try to get away from that as soon as humanly possible for the reasons you just said you can't grow that way.

there flooding America with Fenton all trying to destroy us from the inside out may also they also have their concentration camps yeah that sounds right No Way Out knowing what you're talking about I have so how there you both of the other things that so it really grotesque going on China they have a a dog meat trades over there's like in some parts of China is like a delicacy or something to that effect so you and you see things online is pretty brutal how these dogs are treated their tortured dog lovers yes this is team dog up in here so so that this one certainly has some for us but that there's actually a group here in Ohio the Buckeye bull dog rescue that is actually going to fly people over to China to help try to stop this wall the cruelties that are going on to these animals in the executive or the founder executive director Jessica folly she joins us right now to discuss Jessica how are you thanks for having a very good so just describe just from your perspective just all the atrocities and things that you've heard that's going on with China as it pertains to dogs what are the general learn on a large obviously because of people who do so you don says two years for human consumption but unfortunately having to people who are in don't specifically for them not no Senshi that we're getting aren't necessarily bad for the meeting but there's still a lot of money for you Tom dealers to make I intercepting the times one way or another and telling them to people who look after them and torture them for the purpose of human consumption if what made you come to the conclusion that this is something you need to get involved with something that you needed to participate and to stop additionally what did you say I'm sorry you cut out what was the what was the jumping off point for you to get involved with this many years ago I stopped in those videos and yep in were I will grant to put her on hold here I just if you if you can call back try to get a better cell phone reception there but if you I mean some of the things that they do apparently rage was you know what Kobe in why do beef is right where they had massaged the the cal to get to tenderize the meat will that they're doing that like the sort of thing to the dogs is what I have so you're basically treating a dog like a normal house dog rubbing on it loving on it no no no they're not love you know those those cal's those house in Japan they're treated well yes yes they are this is a much much different do it is really a bizarre thing and and and I think we have a jester back just give their more are very good so just a just a circle back here I I I I was telling Rachel I I believe I read somewhere that you know they they tortured the dogs because they think that that makes the meat better for consumption is that correct yeah wow okay is so so what is your group your group is heading over to China how many you're you're I mean you're going over and and what's the plan once you get there we have one hundred over I'm going over there basically and retrieving the doctors and and will be evaluating where there make sure that they get back here are on full page right now thanks for reverently and the medical treatment they need foster homes and potential to combat that point and you're doing this the next month or so is that correct yeah okay very good will just look we we appreciate your time here and and best of luck over there will follow up with you all right yeah breach it terrible phone reception would like to continue that but anyway but the a a bad deal that squawking this house them now let's go back to this day they do live here one they are they have their own little pastors they have their own care takers now I'm not saying it's a great it but it's a good life in a bed and they feel like rice and like milk right yeah and there's some sort of alcohol I forget which what kind of at maybe the beer is it right for the sake I forget but there's some sort of alcohol that these cows get then they get daily massages and that's supposed to distribute the fat more evenly through the beef and make the marveling at it tastes tastes good but that and then a dog or where are two different things come on man yeah yeah I do now and the like I said the cal you know it is not a great hint it's a it's a decent life it takes awhile to get there you know you're you're living now your days three five years maybe you know to get maturity get that Mars is I always and then yeah and then you check out you check out your prime kinda you know after having this great kind of day care taker be awesome to you for all these years I mean I'm not saying it it's now now they do have a ways to go for those caps and just in terms of cal is they probably do the best I always when I all right yeah see cal's our past when I'm like feel terrible for his they're born to die like they're born to die they live a pretty miserable existence or like walk around older okay delays they like the mud have you had cows you now anything less walk around his own feces hello you've not have you hung out with okay they they they here but there's no way that's a fun that you know what is his all depends on the person involved in the animal husbandry because there's a lot of cows out there that are living a great life in nice pastors that are you know they have the organic milk thing going on so they got to be clean that have to have good good food they have to have a good life now is a good set up you know that's why only like oral or family or that they have side beef because of more free range kind accounts better than writing can get organic she too and and you know so so there's there's ways that you as a conscientious consumer can help these cows live a better life by purchasing products that are organic there you go yeah and freedom sake that might help I want to see if I do a better show with sake I bet I would turn the TV that high to rob what about you I would do a great show with ray sacking yes let's try it yeah experiment on Friday there you go plus I think ostrich farms would be a lot better too because it doesn't matter if they're

"The WGN radio newsroom. These are the stories that matter on seven twenty WGN. Thank you. Ryan. It's Bill leff. It's Wendy Snyder. And yesterday, we were talking to Bridget Carey from C net about videos on YouTube kids, and in the middle of a kids video they would insert another video describing how to commit suicide. There are a lot of bad things out there. It's hard to police everything. And some even worse things going on on YouTube are child predators out there. And we have Chris had Nagy on the line with us founder and executive director and board member of the innocent lives foundation. Chris how's it going? Good. How are you doing today? Good now. This was intriguing to us because you are trying to find people like, I guess, we call them ethical hackers IT people to try and figure this out the YouTube is a very dangerous place and every kid in the world watches YouTube videos. Every kid on earth is not just watching, but they have their own channel. And they're posting their whole lives on YouTube. So there are a lot of predators out there who target children first of all talk about that. That was interesting when I saw that video from the gentlemen of posted about the gymnastics, and how that puts you in this algorithm. And that seed I went through step by step and guaranteed. Exactly what he said happened. And it was appalling truly appalling the comments that that were there you have it. You know, innocence kids not putting out pornographic videos by they were just putting out videos. Maybe they're trying on new clothes. They were playing games. They were doing gymnastics they were doing artistic things, but the comments is where we really saw some some disgusting things not just people commenting about these these little kids and their bodies and saying sexual things, but then actually posting numbers to what's up groups where pedophile rings were getting together now to discuss those videos or to trade in other content. Truly truly appalling, isn't it fairly simple to trace those comments and figure out where the sources on us. Yeah. That that's a really interesting question that that's kind of what we do is innocent lives foundation is trying to find those folks that are posting those comments and then look into who they are in real life. Here's the issue, especially with something. Like a what's at group? What's happened to end to end encryption application that's owned by Facebook. So it it basically once you're in that application, the encryption stop someone from really locating the people that are in that group you need to be invited into that group. You just can't gain access to that group. So if they want to these people do they're they're easily able to hide their their steps. So it's much more difficult to find out who they are. And those of them that are experienced in this type of of predatory activity. They're not using their real identities or their real names. So they're using fake accounts in order to to perpetrate these things. Can I ask the the biggest question of all what the heck is? Is wrong with these people that they post these things just out in the open like that. Yeah. You know? So this this has been my my my soapbox. I know. It's not a very popular one. But I'm glad you asked that question because this is really where my my brain goes. I have I have two children myself. And I think that you know, instead of burning the burning the steak in front of YouTube. Sure, they have to fix a lot of things they really do. But where are the parents where are the parents? You know, what I went through this? I went through this process to see what was out there on YouTube as part of the innocent lives research, and I was appalled. The how many nine to twelve year old girls were doing something called swimsuit halls. Right. So they get these brand new swimsuits or these brand new evening gowns, and they're trying to them on on YouTube and things that should be private that you shouldn't be putting out on public channels. And you you have to have some kind of parental supervision even start this thing. But their parents are letting them put these videos out there where they're trying on bikinis. They're trying on swimsuits. They're trying on dresses that are not covering enough. And they're they are out there. Now, they're they're videos have tens of thousands or even more views and a lot of them are from people who have a very very bad and the Farias. Thinking about them. Sadly. Yeah. But I mean, you can't blame a young girl for wearing something sexy or trying a bathing suit on. I mean, I don't I agree. And I don't know what the kids purposes, but a lot of times these are just little girls or young girls that would be trying them on in front of their friends. We've all done it. I'm sorry. You get a new swimsuit. Hey, what do you think of this? Everybody is out there to to gain praise from everyone else. So I see everything which dress should I wear this one or this one? It's like we're looking to everyone else to give us some kind of approval. And I agree with that. One hundred percent, you cannot blame the girl for wearing a swimsuit. But why does that need to be on YouTube? So if I if I want to see something on wearing I'm gonna go, that's my friends my family. I don't need to post it on YouTube, and then get one hundred million opinions and ask my friends and family not a bunch of strangers. What they think about how I looked in this in this wind soon. That's our way of thinking. But the kids they want likes and approval, that's really what they're going for. So they'll come up with some idea to get all these likes. I agree. It is part of the social media. Oh, how do we want to wear to this day and age of how social media has retrained our young people to interact with each other. And and thumbs up Chris yesterday. We do a weekly segment about technology, and we were talking about the fact that he said this at the beginning of the segment there are now people who will take kids videos, insert, something horrific in the middle of it. The one we talked about yesterday was how to commit suicide right there in the middle of the kids video. So I said with the millions and millions and millions of videos on YouTube. You can't put all the pressure on them to police it. There's just too many. And she agreed. What are your thoughts about that? It's it's a volume problem. There's too many to police. Yeah. I agree volume. Definitely is is the issue. And it goes back to the issue of what we're talking about with with just a gymnastics or videos at the volume problem. All of this has to do with the volume problem media's coming at us in such high quantity at such high rate. The moderator says we call them, right? The people who are being paid by social media companies to go through these things. Yeah. And look for content and comments and things, you know, they're those poor people that have to do this for a living magin the amount of content. They need to go through to find that one thirty or sixty second clip in the middle of a Pepe pig video. Right. That is that is trying to shock and awe a poor two or four year olds. You mentioned you have two kids. You said, right. I do. All right. So what what advice did you give to them? Or what was the law that you handed down and said from now on this is what is allowed and what is not allowed. What how'd you handle it? Yeah. That's a great question. So for me, and and this is gonna sound very authoritarian. But this is the way we manage it miles, especially as the security guys what I do for a living is the internet. The internet is a privilege, right? It's not a right. So what we did for our house is when we had things on the internet. We monitored monitored the house internet, so there were certain content that just was not allowed to be to be viewed any anything that adult content, which is not allowed on our network here at home. An addition social media networks that my children would be on when they were very young. We had to approve though, social media networks if they were going to be on it, and then they had to be set up privatized by by me. So we didn't just trust. You know, my ten year old at the time say, hey, go ahead. You could set this up. And here's how you'd be private. We we helped her set it up. So then we would go and we'd sit up the privatization for it. Make sure it was private make sure people couldn't just. Come on to her town. And then her friends had to be authorized in order to come onto that account. So that way it wasn't just a free for all. They got older. Of course, you know, freedom opened up in the range opened up, and they had to make more choices than we educated them on how to make those choices, but it was a slow process. But we educated them on as they continue to get older. So that way they were making wise choices that were not just based on what everyone else was doing. But it was based on how to stay safe and secure in a digital age. And isn't it sad that you have to explain to to a very naive innocent child the reasons behind this because those reasons probably wouldn't occur to a little kid. But you as the parents have to explain what they're not aware of right? It's terrible. You know, the first especially with what I do for innocent lives foundation. You kind of think I'm gonna keep this away from my kids. But I remember the first time that my daughter she was about seven years old and she was sitting with jazz. Skype account. She would chat with her friends that were not local had friends in Ohio and Florida friends over she would chat with them over Skype and her Skype account was not private and the first time she's sitting there and the Skype rings, and she answers it on her on her laptop. And when she picks it up up on the camera comes a naked guy. Oh my God guide called her. And it was some naked guy. And it was everything that I had been teaching and talking about to all these parents, and the people flashed in my mind that I didn't do it here at home. And that's when we changed the whole the laws and the rules because it was like, whoa. This just happened to my daughter out of the air Rando was looking through the Skype lists and saw and we went we found out. How am I had? She just had a little blurb of butter self Hammami. I'm seven years old. You know, I live here. It was complete innocence. She wasn't doing anything wrong. She was just a little girl. And this guy was a predator. It is. And it's terrible. That you have to do this for your kids. You have to sit them down and say, hey, Honey, I'm sorry. There are bad people out there that want to do bad things. And this is why we have to have these rules. But in this day and age, sadly, if you don't do that, the they they may find out in a very more difficult. Sure, we have to take a break. We'll continue talking about this some comments from listeners as well. Three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred Chris had Nagy founder executive director and board member of the innocent lives foundation. We will continue next year and seven twenty WGN..

"New York. Speaking of football at seven thirty this morning. The NFL preview is along on the fan. Pro Bowl on WFAN later in the day. Football Sunday follows are nine o'clock update this morning with those two guys Melissa's and deal and the long after eight o'clock update. It's the sports edge with Rick wolf, I'm Bob Solter. We're in a discussion with Raleigh Sadler on our program. Rally is founder and executive director of an organization, that's nonprofit, let my people go on the web at L mpg. Network. That's all one word that word Jeep, and he's also the author of a book that I want to talk about it's entitled vulnerable rethinking human trafficking. You were kind enough to put a copy of this book literally right in front of me. Also bit about so vulnerable kind of shares my story as I was trying to figure out. Well, how do I fight human trafficking? I mean, I wear cardigans some probably not gonna kick down the door of a brothel. What does it look like probably not? And so what does it look like for me to engage this issue? As myself. And I think there's many of us we are not in law enforcement. We're not in social services. We're not running nonprofits. And we're thinking, well, this is such a big issue. How do we engage? How do we actually get skin in the game? And that is really. What I kind of lead with in this book is that any of us can do something because all of us have a voice and all of us have something to say all of us have a story to be shared and. As we look for vulnerable populations. It's easy. Once we we know what to look for. And I talk about that in the book who is most vulnerable to human trafficking. And I've already mentioned some of these populations. Once we begin looking for these people will begin seeing them everywhere. And then we can engage. But that's only one half of it. Yes. We should look for vulnerability. But we should also look from vulnerability if we don't see our own vulnerability and our own issues in our own broken. And the fact that we have something very critical in common with the people that were trying to help. If we don't see that. Then it's very easy to the well-meaning. It's very easy to end up exploiting the very people that were trying to help. It's very easy to treat them as lesser than. And what I love about this idea of shared vulnerability. Even though are issues may differ. We're all one medical emergency way from being on the streets. And so. As we engage someone rather than saying, let me reach down and help you up. We can say, you know, what we're on the same level are issues may differ, but we have issues. So how can we walk alongside of you? As you try to think through. How to grow as a person? And so yes for me. This book is about how vulnerability plays into human trafficking. And how one thing that can lead to the exploitation of others. Someone's vulnerability. That can also lead to that person's freedom, and yeah. So I mean. What is it that you're hoping is going to come from the publication of this book the release of this book, and it officially comes out next month? It's so it's so exciting because this book is coming from my perspective as a Christian, and I really wanna show a historical Christian response to human trafficking in this book. Now, whether you're a believer or not. It will show you kind of what it what it should in could look like, and I want people, regardless of whether they believe me or not if they read the book, I really want them to realize they can do something today. And so at the very end of the book, we have one hundred things that you can do right now to fight human trafficking. It we give a very practical. She really to say. You are not powerless. You are able to encourage others who could be exploited right now. That's a very powerful statement as well. Is there a rule and we've only got better minute or so left here in program. Is there a role for? The formal education process in promoting awareness about human trafficking. Absolutely. In other words, should this? Is this a topic that should be addressed in schools? Yes. And you know, what I'm hearing more and more especially from people who are going to colleges that they're like, oh, I took a course on human traffic that wasn't around when I started. And so it's slowly. But surely happening it's happening in some public high schools. I mean people. Yeah, it's slowly. But surely getting out there. Well, the topic will certainly be watching the month of January human trafficking awareness month. Raleigh Sadler in studio with us founder executive director of let my people go on the web at L mpg network. That's all one word dot ORG. He's also the author of this new book that is officially coming out in the month of February. It's entitled vulnerable rethinking human trafficking. Thank you very much for coming in joining us in this question as I imagined. It was a very lively discussion. I'm glad we were also able to include some thoughts from some of the folks listening to us. Thank you, certainly. Good luck continued with your work. Thank you, very interesting chat after nine o'clock update this morning football Sunday program along with Melissa's and.

"Delight will sort of put on our our Swami hat and without our crystal ball because we're going to be looking ahead. The shutdown does end eventually. And when it does why we want to be in a position to say that that we can do something about see what the future might hold. Now. The Senate is going to push forward with a couple of votes this week. To end the shutdown. It's doubtful of either one will pass just for the record. So looking ahead to what will happen. Eventually eventually, it will turn to Daniel Turner, usually founder and executive director of power the future online at power the future dot com. And we'll take a look at just what maybe forthcoming as regards certainly in the house of representatives. The the democratic initiatives says they'll be calling the shots Daniel good evening. Jim. Thanks so much for having me on. Absolutely. And you've assembled a list of some things that you are expecting to see let's just go down that list. And and see what it is that you see on the horizon. Yeah. It's gonna be an interesting time when the shutdown ends. Although quite honestly, I don't see that happening anytime too soon. I think both sides are really entrenched in their positions and compromise this far has been unattainable. But you're right. It does have to. Eventually, and it'll be interesting to see with what the house and the Senate due respectively with their new power. And I would note that already we've had up to ten percent of TSA people calling in sick eventually that will backup airports, and I don't think that will last too long. So you start off here with climate politics. What do you see there? Yeah. This is a real important issue for anyone considering the twenty twenty general election. How many Dem's have already announced their candidacy? They're up to about eight or nine and some people predict the list will be about twenty five or thirty. So it's a really important wedge issue. The the green new deal is the new buzzword here in DC, many candidates have already jumped onto this proposal without even really knowing what's in it, which is kind of odd. Right. Elizabeth Warren has embraced it though. She couldn't exactly explain it. But climate policy will be something where the Pelosi house of representatives will really try to be thorn in the side of the Trump administration. And they're. Agenda and. To what extent the maim has obviously been attached to it. Alexandria coffee. Oh, Cortez to what extent is this hers, or is she simply lending her growing name a to to the topic. What's interesting about the green new deal is that it was cobbled together by a bunch of interns over a weekend. Yes. It is not a serious proposal. It is not serious legislation. But it has a lot of buzz to it. It's got a lot of popularity to it. And there is some green to it. There's no doubt it has a bit of an energy component. But about ninety percent of it is really just a rehash of the new deal. It's free healthcare free education. Guaranteed jobs, guaranteed wages and living wages for for everybody. There's an awful lot of big government in this masked as a as a climate policy, and there's really very little when it comes to energy policy serious energy policy. Looking at some other things that our climate and energy issues to to watch in the forthcoming year. What else is the first ball is on your particular list? What I'm interested in seeing how they combat what President Trump is trying to do with energy regulation rollback. There's never been a national appetite for climate policy. If your listeners, and you recall, even going back to two thousand nine when President Obama had his super majority and all of his popularity and fame he could not get his cap and trade Bill passed in fact, Harry Reid who is the majority leader at the time. He didn't even bring it to the Senate floor for a vote, even though he had the votes because he knew it was so unpopular so what because of that President Obama put in a lot of executive orders that Trump is rolling back one by one and we've seen a number of lawsuits come as a result of this. I'm curious to see what the Democrats in the house due to advance a sort of energy policy. Restore. Frictions on coal and oil and gas as they try to codify it into law as as President Obama wasn't able to do that we should keep in mind here that because of the infinite wisdom of the public in voting the straight paralysis ticket there were not talking about any thing that is serious here. Nothing's going to get enacted the Democrats can propose all they want in the house, but it'll never get through a Republican Senate Ditto Republicans can propose all they want in a Republican Senate. It'll never get through the house, and of course, hovering over at all is President Trump's veto pen. So we're talking about posturing here. And unless you have something that really strikes some bike partisan cords, which at the moment seems to be virtually non-existent all we were talking about is stuff for income much to take back to their constituents and say, see, I propose, the whatever whatever we're not most everything that we're talking about tonight, the people behind it would be shocked absolutely shocked if it became law. That's an absolutely great point. And and I mentioned earlier this is all gearing up to the twenty twenty election. And so if you were a political strategist and Nancy Pelosi shop, you would try to engage or propose any sort of legislation. That would help your candidates in the general you're going to see things like I mentioned the green new deal, you're going to see some sort of gun control. Universal background checks are going to be popular you'll see some sort of expansion of social services reform of ObamaCare at cetera. But but what I'm concerned about is that she's going to take these things and rather than propose something that can actually be enabled or inactive and positive. She's going to end up pushing the party so far to the left that in the long run. She's actually going to hurt. Most of our candidates it listing thought at one eight six six five zero jimbo's our number one eight six six five zero five four six two six and let's pause early. Take a quick break. We'll come back, and we'll talk some more with our guest. He is Daniel Turner founder. Executive director of power the future. Their website is their name of power the future dot com.
