Why Mitch McConnell is unstoppable

"The reality is in the Senate right now, it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and that has left the minority party with very few options. The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. and. What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. Yeah. But there are provisions. Already in line for how to deal with those things, you file something called a cloture motion. That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, you could pack the court afterward, you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. So you could have two more. Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. Well, that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. There was no. Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court justices at nine. It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. In twenty years, we might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. Then that's GonNa change the. Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. These are processed fights. I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. Court. But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, yeah, they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. On, what the impact of trading in Ruth? Bader GINSBURG. The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act on voting rights on clean air clean.

This is so important more than 60% of voters are expected to cast ballots before Election Day this year, either in person or by mail. That's up from about 36% in 2016. Republicans are more likely to vote in person this year than Democrats. Recent slowdowns at the U. S. Postal Service have some voters nervous. Their ballots might not reach their destination on time. Mark Herel voted in person. I want to make sure it's deliberate.

What Everyone Forgets About Money

"What everyone forgets about money by Crowning Chris. RINING DOT COM. Washing dishes was how I earned my first paycheck when you're fifteen years old and don't get money from your parents to buy things then you have to work. So there. I was scrubbing dishes in the filthy kitchen of a small family owned Italian restaurant, and it's where I learned a little life lesson work is nothing more than trading time for money a medium of exchange. You provide one hour of time to an employer and they provide an hour's wage. I quickly discovered teenagers time isn't worth all that much a measly four, twenty, five per hour. Not long after starting that job I wanted this blind melon album. You might remember their catchy song no rain. One Saturday afternoon wandering the aisles in K. Marts, electronics, department I saw it for sale. Cool. I'm getting it. The price was sixteen, Ninety, eight for whatever reason I did the mental math to figure out the album didn't really cost me seventeen dollars. No, it costs four hours on your feet washing never ending streams of bus tubs overflowing with half finished plates of meat balls is this CD worth four hours of my time. In this case it was but more importantly, you realize the money tucked in your wallet isn't money at all. It's time disguised as money. In fact, it was Benjamin Franklin who said time is money but in our hectic day to day lives, it's easy to forget this. When you spend your money, what you're really doing is spending your time, which means if you waste your money, you waste your time. anyways throw my teens I worked a series of jobs, bagging groceries, stocking merchandise theater concessions, and mostly saved my earnings my time to precious and then I went off to college started a career and forgot what I learned. have. You heard that saying from Texas big hat no cattle meaning you can look rich but be poor. It's hard to believe people who make lots of money are poor. But then your tax preparer tells you they see plenty of families making three hundred thousand dollars and living paycheck to paycheck Thomas Stanley profiles. These folks in the millionaire next door, the doctor lawyer types who drive fancy cars living exclusive neighborhoods and take exotic vacations they look rich, but it's an illusion. It's the families who make one hundred, thousand dollars spent forty thousand and have a million dollars in the bank who are rich. Isn't the worst irony that the simplest way to get rich and have lots of money to spend his by not spending lots of money. But just because it's simple to get rich doesn't mean it's easy spend less than you earn and invest the difference that simple would makes getting rich so difficult is that spending less than you earn takes discipline the median retirement account is worth twenty, five, thousand dollars, and so the problem isn't paying people more money they'll save more give people more money to spend and they'll spend more money. I know this because back in my twenties, I spent just like the next person you think acquiring loss of material possessions satisfying all your superficial desires is the key to happiness. It took me years to relearn what I knew as a teenager. The things you buy with money that you surround yourself with aren't things at all it's your time. And research shows it's having control over your time that makes you happiest not money and things. So, most people have a choice. You can trade time for money and money for things, or you can trade time for money and then use that money as a tool to buy back time. That's why you save and invest, which reminds me of what stoic philosopher Seneca said quote. It's not that we have a short time to live but that we waste much of it life is long enough and it's been given to us in generous measure for accomplishing the greatest things if the whole of it is well invested. But when life is squandered through soft and careless living, and when it spent on no worthwhile pursuit death finally presses and we realized that the life which we didn't notice passing has passed away and quote. What he's saying is when you're about to die, you realize life is time and doesn't that make time your most precious resource. Here think about it like this see, you've worked forty hours per week for the past ten years. You've traded twenty thousand hours of your time. That's forty hours times, fifty weeks, times, ten years, and on the other side of the trade is everything you've consumed sure necessities like food clothing, shelter and healthcare but probably a bunch of other stuff you've totally forgotten about buried in the back of some closet. Was it a fair trade? Maybe it was maybe it wasn't but people are always telling me they've earned million dollars over the past ten years and have nothing to show for it and it makes them sick. They're not complaining about wasting their money. What they're complaining about is wasting their time. Trade wisely.

The 'Keep Nine' Amendment

The KDKA Radio Morning News

The 'Keep Nine' Amendment

"A little idea of exactly what your organization keep. Nine. Is it? Nine is a bipartisan organization that is working to persuade Congress to propose what would be the 28th amendment to the United States Constitution That would say the Supreme Court of the United States is nine justices. Be the shortest amendment in the Constitution, and it would prevent the idea that some people are talking about which is to APAC. The Supreme Court the Supreme Court, is it our most important institution? The United States Constitution is an amazing document, and it creates a balance between the executive legislative and judicial branches. And the Supreme Court is the branch that has been called on time and again to resolve disputes between the executive branch and the legislative branch and to resolve issues that otherwise might Tear the country apart. So it's a critical institution for the survival of American democracy. And the most important element of the Supreme Court is that it is independent. It can't be controlled by the president. It can't be controlled by Congress. And throughout our history. There have been people in the presidency and in Congress that I wanted to destroy the independence of the court. And it may be the most important issue of this election. Whether or not this election results in the election of folks Who want to preserve the independence of the Supreme Court for the election of the folks who want to destroy it. Now the president Any president has no control over the Supreme Court, but it can have a lot of influence because let's face it. President Trump has two picks to the Supreme Court already and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. There's still two picks from President Obama's era. There's two from the George W. Bush era on there, There's two from the Clinton era on there and one remaining one from the George H. W. Bush era. So let's just Those ugh that if President Trump is reelected, he could get possibly two, maybe three more Supreme Court justice opportunities coming up here, with Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas, both rumored to be considering retirement. I think Stephen Breyer as well somewhere down the line, but in the next few years, so that proves the importance of the Supreme Court and how much influence we could have for 50 years going forward from the Trump Eric. Correct, Absolutely. But there's an even more fundamental issue more than 100 years, the Supreme Court In an independent institution. Congress has not changed its size. But if after this election we end up with Ah, somebody that wants to pack the Supreme Court. We could end up with not just the names of people on the Supreme Court changing but the nature of the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court became a political football between the two parties, with one party packing it when they were in charge and another party packing and when they were in charge, we would lose one of the most important institutions in the country. And that independence is mohr important, then who is appointed and we're very fortunate right now, in that both candidates appear to say that they don't want a packed court. Trump is attack court packing. And Biden said, I don't want a packed court either. But the problem is that there's some people on the Biden a team, including Kamala Harris, who said in the past that they like the idea of court packing and the Democratic Party platform. Includes language that says they favor court restructuring. And Senator Chuck Schumer has said that he might restructure the court if the court doesn't rule in ways that he likes. So there's a threat out there. And our appeal is two candidates in both parties who say that they don't want to pack the court to endorse the Keep Nine Amendment so that we are permanently protected against efforts to pack the court. And we think that's a critical issue that voters ought to care about because it will show what kind of governance we're gonna have over the next four years. If we have people who support to keep nine Amendment, we can rest assured that the court is not going to be packed. But if we have people who won't support to keep nine Amendment, we've gotta worry and so candidates for Congress candidates for the president. We think we ought to be asked. Do you support to keep nine Amendment because if they would pack it like you mentioned that would lead to political chaos The Supreme Court is always seen is at the institution that is more rational and steady and less fashionable, right and throughout our history, the biggest beneficiary of an independent Supreme Court are minorities because it's the Supreme Court that protects the unpopular rights of minorities. Every once in a while, you get a wave in Congress, so we got to do something. People say Well, it could affect minorities and sometimes in Congress. They don't care and the classic example of the Supreme Court standing up for minorities was almost 200 years ago, when Andrew Jackson decided that he was going to see the land of the Cherokee Indians and deport them all. The Oklahoma and the Supreme Court stood up and said, it's wrong. Unfortunately, at that time, Andrew Jackson said, Well, how many regiments does the Supreme Court have and ignored their ruling? Now? That wouldn't happen today, The Supreme Court has enough power to resist that kind of defiance. But if a president could say, Well, I don't like your decision. I'm going to pack the Supreme Court put my own people on the rights of minorities would be AH, gravely at risk. There were other presidents in the past have threatened to stack the Supreme Court as well. Back in the early 19 hundreds correct right. The most recent memory was Franklin Roosevelt in 1937. He had just won an overwhelming victory in 1936. Hey, had overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress. And so he decided that he was going to use that opportunity to put some of his allies on the Supreme Court because at the time they were ruling against some of the legislative proposals that he had made and what he didn't expect was a outpouring of public opposition in both parties. And it basically destroyed his ruling coalition in his second term, and our message to both parties is don't go too far proposed your policies past them in Congress, but preserve the independence of the Supreme Court. Because if you try to upset that you're risking all the other items in your agenda. How did they come to nine as the final number in the Supreme Court? Well, it's very interesting history for the first almost 90 years of American history. The Supreme Court was, in fact, a political football and the Republican majority after the civil War was stuck with a Supreme Court that had been appointed by pro slavery president prior to the civil war, And so they basically was a naked power grab. They expanded the size of the court put their own people on. And you can argue that that may have been the right strategy after after a civil war, but very soon thereafter, the tradition grew At the Supreme Court ought to be independent was a tradition honored by both parties after 18 69 and people thought, you know people would honor tradition and in 1937. When FDR said, I'm going to pack the court, it was a great shock to people Now. It's interesting that FDR also broke another long standing tradition in American politics. He ran for a third term, and there had been a tradition ever since the founding of the republic that presidents only ran for two terms. And what happened in that case was, there was a public outcry and the 22nd amendment to the Constitution, which limits presidents to two terms was a response to Roosevelt's running for a third term. And our view is that just as the 22nd amendment put into the Constitution, a longstanding tradition, a new 28th amendment that says the Supreme Court of United States should be nine justices is the right way together. NT the independence of the Supreme Court for the future and is keep nine dot org website the best place for people to go to either support your idea for an amendment or just get more information. Absolutely. And if you go to that website, you'll see an E mail address where you can email us with specific questions or if you want to get involved in this effort. We're hoping that in the next two months, an army of citizens will AH demand that candidate for Congress for Senate and for the White House will answer the very simple question. Do you support to keep Nine Amendment? To keep the Supreme Court at nine justices and by the way, our hero on this issue was Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has said she opposes court packing and she thinks nine is a good number for the Supreme Court.

Trump reportedly called service members "losers" and "suckers"

"Again in the Atlantic and it sets the scene all the way back in two thousand eighteen when trump was in. Paris he was supposed to visit a cemetery for soldiers who died in war and if you'll remember he didn't actually end up going because he said the helicopter couldn't fly because it was raining. And there was a big deal about that obviously because he was afraid of a little rain. He also tried to claim that the secret service wouldn't drive but Jeffrey Goldberg says neither claim was true. In reality he says trump rejected the idea of visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important honor American war dead in that is according to four people with firsthand knowledge of discussion that day. He goes on to say in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. It continues in a separate conversation on the same trip trump referred to more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as quote suckers for getting killed. Bellawood was apparently consequential battle in American history I don't remember it off the top of my head, but I'm just reading what's in the article here. And it says that in that same trip talking about world war. One trump asked who are the good guys in this war? He also said that he didn't understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the allies. Now you'll remember he said this about John McCain back in two thousand fifteen but lost. So I, never liked him as much after that because I don't like interest. But but Frank Franklin. We get to He. He's war hero. He's a war. He's a war hero presumes capture. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. The article says that trump had remained fixated on McCain in that when he died back in August twenty, eighteen trump told his senior staff this time according to three sources with direct knowledge of quote we going to support that losers funeral end quote and that he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff saying quote what the F. Are we doing that for guy was a f Ing Loser The White House denies this whole report by the way saying, then the Anti Yadda trump's supported the military more than any president. The article continues according to sources with knowledge of the president's views. He seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military on at least two occasions since becoming president according to three sources with direct knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush as a quote loser for being shot down by the Japanese. This is where it starts to really get cruel on memorial day twenty, seventeen trump went with then department of Homeland Security Secretary John, Kelly to Arlington Cemetery. The article says the two men were set to visit section sixty, the fourteen acre area of the cemetery that it is burial ground for those killed in America's most recent wars. Kelly son Robert is buried in section sixty according to sources with knowledge of this visit trump while standing by Robert Kelly's grave turned directly to John Kelly in said quote I don't get it what was in it for them. Kelly said he originally thought trump was making a ham handed reference to these selflessness of America's all volunteer force. But later he came to realize that trump simply does not understand non transactional life choices. This is coming from one of Kelly's friends who Goldberg says a retired four. Star General. This friend says quote he can't fathom the idea of doing something for someone other than himself. He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there's no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There's no money in serving the nation trump can't imagine anyone else's pain. That's why he would say this to the father of a fallen marine on Memorial Day in the cemetery where he's buried. It goes on to talk about how trump is basically used the military as props how he thinks they answer only to not the constitution as evidenced by his gassing of peaceful protesters in officer who had firsthand knowledge of trump's views says quote. He has a lot of fear. He doesn't see the heroism in fighting and then Goldberg says several observers told me that trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured in this worry manifests itself as disgust for those who have suffered. Than it tells another story about how trump falsely claimed he called quote virtually all of the family members of service members who had died during his term, and then when family started speaking out and saying, no, you didn't trump had to begin rush shipping condolences to those families. Felt last paragraph ends on, which is actually pretty profound. I didn't expect you know something. So big to be saved for the end I thought would be the author's own thoughts but it says in a twenty eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked to staff not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that end quote. I think to me the details really do add credibility and he says he's talking to three or four sources all the time. But it got really interesting here when the Associated Press confirmed his sources essentially this tweet from James Laporta an investigative reporter former marine infantryman. Now, obviously, with the Associated Press, the port a tweeted out yesterday a senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by Jeffrey. Goldberg in its entirety especially the graphs about late senator, John McCain and former Marine General John Kelly president. Donald Trump's former chief of staff. So before that, you had people trying to push out, wouldn't say this. Of course, he didn't say this this is false. Trump. Himself devoted three tweets to claiming that was just a hoax made up by the media who are hungry to You know and his political career. But yeah, that was definitely a big shock when she came out in essentially confirmed most of the story. Republicans are doing their usual remaining silent or denying that it's still true. and. I just don't know how you could say it's not true. He said this in public but. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like. It was right out there and this other tweet from just some random twitter account but it made me think the commander in chief was found guilty stealing money from kids. Cancer charity mocks disabled reporters, gases, protesters for photo ops over twenty thousand lies kills one hundred, ninety, thousand Americans violate civil rights, incites violence calls, fallen soldiers, losers, and suckers. Yeah I guess if you put it against everything, we know about trump name calling certainly seems to be in his wheelhouse. Mentioned surprised that this came to be a big story

Trump and 2015 McCain comments

"Donald trump is vehemently denying allegations made in a shocking Atlantic piece, which claims that trump refused to visit a US military cemetery near Paris in two thousand, eighteen because the fallen soldiers were in his words, losers and suckers. Now I say it was a shocking piece but to be honest with you not so shocking when you consider all the different times, he transparently brazenly said terrible things about members of our military who happen to disagree with him politically. But here he is denying it and then I'll give you what the facts are to think that I would make statements negative to. Our military and our fallen heroes nobody's done what I've done. With the budgets with the military budgets with getting pay raises military it is a disgraceful situation. By a magazine that's a terrible magazine. I don't read it by disagreed with John. McCain. But still respected him and I had to approve his funeral is president. We lowered the flags I had to approve that nobody else I had to approve it when you think I'm just thinking back. I had to approve either Air Force One or military plane. To go to Arizona to pick up his casket and I approved it immediately. So. Let's take a look at a trump tweet from two thousand fifteen because there's always tweet. This is from July two, thousand fifteen where trump referred to John McCain as a loser. I mean he tweeted an article about himself calling John McCain loser. So he was bragging about it also when McCain died in two thousand, eighteen trump refused to lower the White House flag back to half staff even though it's become customary for presidents to sign a proclamation calling for the flag to remain at half staff for members of Congress until the day of interment, and then one other piece of evidence to Kinda refute trump's narrative in that video take a look and I said somebody should run against John McCain who has been. In my opinion not so hot I supported him. I supported for President I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost he let us down but he lost. So. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like to lose. But. But Frank Franklin we're get doing. He hit me he's a war hero. He's a war hero he's a war hero presumed captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to tell you. That was from twenty. Fifteen event in Iowa. So. I don't know how to talk trump supporters anymore. That's why I'm done with them in my personal life and everywhere else because the guy. Ridiculous Liar. Does he know that he tweeted on John McCain's loser does he know he said on? Massimo you guys all remember when he said for people who weren't. But earlier, he said, I don't like losers referring to John McCain. So why did he come out yesterday and say no I never malsor. Each just unbelievable he's capable and so if you say, Hey, know what I love people who are Liars Okay again I mean do you boo okay. and. And look again. I. Blame the media. And Because So many politicians lie and they never call it out. They'd never they enabled politicians lies for decades. So eventually, you got one that. So over the top that even. Though. And remember you guys remember it took them like a couple of years before they finally gather up the nerve to say, well, what Donald Trump said, there was not correct. I'm forgetting the name of the CNN analyst who finally just said it and then went on this three minute rant fact checking trump. Fact checking trump's RNC speech but he started that three minute rant by saying trump lied he's a liar and I was like. Is. This CNN what's going on? And so yeah, you're right Jangling the fact that that excited me because it's so rare I think mean something and we'll get you the name of the person I'm talking about because he deserves all the credit I'm kind of blanking right now but look I actually think with this particular story and a few others. The media has done a decent job. So for instance, business insider had a very lengthy list highlighting all the different times, Donald trump attacked members of the military right and fallen soldiers. So I wanna read a few of them right now in fact, as you guys can probably remember in July of two thousand, sixteen trump attacked the family of captain who mine con a slain soldier someone who died. Fighting for the country dismissing a speech his father Kaiser Khan made because he said Khan's mother hadn't been allowed to speak the family said she had not spoken because she too emotional to talk about her son's death. And he just kept going after that family. It was it was honestly disgusting in October of two thousand seventeen trump forgot the name of slain US Army Sergeant La- David Johnson while he was on the phone with his widow, Johnson was killed in an ambush in. Niger. While while in active service. Misha. Johnson said the call was trump made her cry and trump told her that her husband knew would he had signed up for in November of two thousand Eighteen Fox News is Chris Wallace asked trump about his thoughts on retired Admiral William mcraven a former navy seal been. who was behind the mission that killed Osama bin. Laden. He interrupted Wallace and said Hillary Clinton. Fan. When Wallace continued trump did to excuse me Hillary Clinton Fan trump went on to repeat that mcraven supported Clinton which by the way he hadn't as well as former President Barack Obama and said frankly wouldn't have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that. I mean, there's so many more examples Jank but I mean I want to give you an opportunity to respond to some of them. By the way Daniel Dale is the CNN reporter that I was referring to earlier go ahead. So we've seen him call the generals, losers, thousands of times and so. I guess people are shocked at that. He would go and call the fallen soldiers losers as well, and not just stop a general's or veterans or captured soldiers. But is it really shy at all? He calls everybody lose them in his denial. He called the military people who were the sources for this story lowlifes and liars. If you're trying to deny that you'd ever call anybody in the military losers you shouldn't then turn around in your denial and call them lowlifes. Buyers. So I look. Landing brokers story with four sources. Then Washington Post back it up with three sources and the Associated Press also found sources all saying the same thing. I actually want to read a few excerpts from the Washington Post piece. Again, these aren't the same sources. These are additional sources who also spoke to the Washington Post about. Their experience with trump and what he had to say about fallen soldiers in one account. The president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such a high value on finding. Oh. This is so disgusting finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught in deserved what they got according to a person familiar with the discussion. Okay. That That part of the story like I don't know all of it is gross but that part hit me the hardest because he just doesn't value people's lives and think about losing a family member that way and knowing that the president of the United States does not care to find their bodies. A trump believes people who served in Vietnam War must be losers. They hadn't gotten out of it according to a person familiar with the comments. Trump also complained bitterly to then chief of staff, John Kelly that he didn't understand why Kelly and others in the military treated. McCain, who had been imprisoned and tortured during the Vietnam War with such reverence isn't he kind of a loser? Trump asked according to a person familiar with trump's comments. So. Look at Donald Trump says, this is outrageous synonymous sources. Donald Trump also, just a couple of days ago said that there was a plane full of thugs who are gonNA come and disturb. His, acceptance speech and caused violence and when asked, who told you that he said? I can't tell you basically it's anonymous. So. I'm supposed to believe your anonymous source of a trust me to go. You would know trust me. But we're not supposed to believe now it looks like about a half, a dozen military sources for that talked to three different publications all saying the same thing and all saying things that are very similar to what you said before and by the way yesterday show before the Washington Post Associated Press stories came out I said I guarantee you. that. He thinks that they're suckers 'cause he out of be fake doctor's note because his daddy bottom one and he thinks they're suckers for not being able to get out of the war his spoil less and it turns out. That's exactly what he said according to the military sources that heard him say. And remember when sources are anonymous to the general public that doesn't mean that there are anonymous to the reporters. Reporters have to vet their anonymous sources and corroborate what they're saying So maybe they're anonymous to us, but they're not anonymous to the reporters.

"Hey, there. This is Jonathan Hirsch from dear Franklin Jones. I know it's been a while and I don't have any updates for you just yet, but stay tuned in the meantime. I do have something special. I would like to share with you the producers here at Stitcher. Some of the people behind this show have a brand new podcast, and I think you're gonna like it. It's called the dream. Two new show all about the world of multilevel marketing companies also known as MLM's and the people who join them. Jane Marie is the host of the dream, and Jane was a producer at this American life for nearly a decade before launching the show. Jane grew up in rural Michigan. She's from a place where a lot of traditional jobs have gone a little harder to come by. And so some people are turning to MLM's. Here's the pitch for a lot of these companies. If you can sell enough stuff like diet pills or beauty products to your friends into your family, you can make a living from home, maybe even get rich, the real way to earn money in these companies is to convince your friends and family to join up and sell with you. So Jane goes back to Michigan to trace the origins of these companies how a very few people at the very top of the networks get rich and what happens to all the people at the bottom. Okay. So here's the first episode of the dream. Don't forget to look it up on your podcast app. Next episode is already. They're waiting for you just search for the dream in apple podcasts, Stitcher Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts and subscribe. Pretend I'm somebody that you've just met an icy mo- you mean what's his pitch. Oh, well, you know, you can give me fifteen hundred dollars in in a week and walk away with twelve thousand. You know, we have endless resources that a list of people that even if you don't know them, I know them and you can call them. And all you have to do is be positive and they will get it from you. Come on. You can do this. I know you. You're a great salesperson. I trust you, I believe in you and I'd like to share this opportunity with you. You know, this is don't give me your last fifteen hundred dollars, but if you've got fifteen hundred dollars is kicking around that you're thinking about what should I do with it? Do this do this? Yeah, I did it. I'm in. Yeah, you're in. I know you're in. I'm Jane Marie, and this is the dream episode. One want to swim in cash. When we first started making this show, we were super pumped jazzed, but we have to keep the topic under wraps for as long as possible. The subjects of our investigation are highly litigious for one thing, and we had to get close inside how they work without them freaking out and closing ranks that was touchy enough. But then there's this other thing, half of my family and most of my friends from my hometown are involved directly intimately and we're going to bring you into their world. It's sketchy and crazy making an almost unbelievable. Anyway, it was frustrating this not being able to talk about it thing. Like I said, I was super pumped and I talk a lot one night. I let it slip to one of my best friends that we'd gotten a new gig. The exchange went like this. All I can say is that it's kind of about Puram ID schemes, and he goes, oh, you should talk to my mom what? Yeah. My mom ran one of those when I was. A kid out of our house, a literal pyramid scheme. Hicks, your this loft, there is a sixteen foot high twenty two foot wide window. Overlooking the World Trade Center, ladies and gentlemen, my friends, mom NAN, Dylan. So it's got white pickled floors, a sixteen foot ceiling and thirty five hundred square feet. It is jammed hundreds of people showed up. You can't even walk. There's so many people in order to not be suffocated by the crowd, I climbed up the spiral staircase going to the second floor just to observe. And I remember just kind of sitting on that staircase overlooking this crowd of people as they moved around the room, making alliances, creating future groups. Back in the eighties NAN was working in advertising and raising her three kids in Manhattan. I was only just, you know, newly unmarried and just kind of coming back into the world. It was kind of an exciting time for me that you know life is new, feeling very empowered and on a personal basis filled with an idea that that I was smart, an adventurous and I could do anything I wanted to do. And that life was just an adventure, the timing of nans rebirth, if you will couldn't have been better. See at that exact moment. A cultural phenomenon was taking hold in new agey circles all over the country. It was called the human potential movement. Think of it as sort of a precursor to the secret, you know, just visualize abundance and happiness and wallah you're rich and skinny or whatever. In that time. New York City. There was a lot of human potential movement groups, kind of it was all about energy. You know, energy out is energy in and you get what you give and all that, you know, power of positive, whatever. In the midst of this movement sits an untethered ma'am, writing this new wave of endless opportunity. And along comes this exciting concept where if you, if you put a bunch of money in and you can talk other people into joining you that everybody could make a lot of money and it was all cash and was all fast and resolve fun, and very optimistic and exciting. This new thing was presented as a game called the airplane game as NAN remembers it. Anyone who is even ten generally related to the whole human potential movement was a buzz about the airplane game parties. Introducing it to newcomers were being held all over lower Manhattan. The way she describes it, they looked kind of like. Literary salons with people giving inspiring lectures at their bohemian flats in the east village and a bunch of aging hippies sitting around cross-legged rapt with attention. There were stories about these people who had come from California who took up residence in some lecture hall in the east village, and these people were giving lectures on the new way of, you know, making money while stepping aside from the establishment, it took a minute, but being in that world, eventually NAN agreed to attend one of these meet ups and to learn more about this exciting opportunity.

"Free shipping on their first color kit with promo code dear Franklin. That's code. Dear Franklin. Okay. Back to the final chapter of deer Franklin Jones. James and my dad's still hang out. James says for years, Thomas was so angry. It was hard to get him to talk about anything else, but now both Thomas and Kathleen have a new grew. This fit smiley, white guy who used to be a competitive bicyclist. Having a spiritual path is still really important to them when things ended with Jones Thomas. Aw, him as a kind of spiritual. Imperialist holding court over the unenlightened, but he still wanted it more than anything wants. It might meant when asked how he makes sense. Now, of who Jones was his answer surprises me. I don't know. I don't notice the oil I know is my story and my story. Here's a villain. But I forgive him. I forgave him because he's not -fferent than me is is not that he did something that I wouldn't do. Maybe I would do that anybody susceptible to human nature, which is why I guess he can also say he doesn't regret raising me in the group because in his story, maybe that time was really good for me. Maybe he says it actually gave me a head start on a tainting enlightenment. You can't imagine how epi I was that you went to. Because who knows what? But maybe a thousand incarnation burned up in that one moment. Maybe my mom, she's a bit more circumspect. You know it wasn't whether or not he was what he was or maybe wasn't all that. He thought he was, or, you know, it's like that was. I mean, I know that being in his room was I saw lot of things. That. Other people weren't privy to or. Didn't have to see. But we can get idealistic sometimes about what a God man supposed to be. If he's a man, he still a man. I think for Kathleen, whether there were questions about his teachings or his claims of enlightenment, or is behavior was all sort of beside the point that following Jones was wrapped up in a lot of things that weren't strictly spiritual. My mom loved her husband loved her life, wanted to save place to raise her family wanted security, and she had big doubts about whether that was possible in mainstream America, which actually doesn't sound radical at all to me. It sounds like a lot of people maybe just framed in different terms. We were so interested in waking up from just being a human. We had experienced a level of life. That was true, and I'm grateful that we were able to have a son in the midst of that. Knowing for years, my parents and I scurried it around the issue of Jones. Like I said, we didn't really talk about it until I started working on this story. But in the past, if it came up, I would try to get them to admit that may be Jones in his experiment. Their life for seventeen years hadn't worked out. They always just refused. I never really understood why. But now as I wait the birth of my own son, think maybe I'm starting to get it. Because if you have kids at some point, they will probably try to understand you your choices maybe as a way to understand where they come from. So how do you respond by saying that your life has been a series of challenges and missteps that maybe culminated in a failed experiment that some people consider Colt, no way you tell the best version of your story. The version you think will bring your children the most happiness, the version you can best live with. Leaving Jones's sanctuary. I noticed the tall wooden gate surrounding his house, try to commit the image to memory. Because this will probably be my last time here. It's funny. My parents left this place guru screw years ago, but I realize now that in some subconscious way, always figured I'd return. The very last time I saw Jones. He was holding a wooden staff looking over our heads or hands raised in the air. As we shouted his name over and over. We called him master God. Franklin Jones was born. He lived. He believed in a bunch of things, and my parents believed many of those things for a while. I believed them to. Jones tried to make all those beliefs into something real along the way he inspired some people and hurt others. And one day after I'd left tried to find my own path and tried to forget him, he died. Until this project. I never thought of Jones's group as Colt. I mean, other people have said it to me plenty of times, but it was only recently that I permitted myself thought that Jones group. Yeah, it could have been a Colt. Maybe my parents did raise me in a called and allowing that one thought enter my mind. I realized it was the thing I'd spent my life resisting. You know, some part of me still wonders, maybe. I'm just not seeing it the right way. Maybe I haven't read enough of the thousands of books on Jones's reading list. Listen to Jones tapes prayed in front of his photo. But in my God, I think I found what I needed.

"Parts. In two thousand fourteen a massive wildfire destroyed. Large areas of county over fourteen hundred homes were evacuated. Many were owned by members of Jones's group. James was one of those followers who lost their home. Yeah. Makes more sense for all driving around. Sure. Later James drive around the area. James says the night of the fire. He and several followers frantically moved boxes of Jones's belongings to a secure place. He himself planned to leave the next day. So we went home to get some sleep, but in the middle of the night, he will up surrounded by flames. There was a ball of fire in the tree of his cars. He spit in reverse out of the driveway. James now lives on Jones's property in a small musty bungalow with a cot in a tiny alter, you can see the bald hillsides from his window from his front porch. The tall fence surrounding Jones's private residence. Nobody lives there now. I asked him if he ever feel sad, that Jones is dad, and he says, every once in awhile he comes across a book that Jones would have liked, and he gets a twinge of sadness when we see him in the earlier every time when we will lead US House, we'd all line up and get a hook. I have hugged him, like, you know, hundred times and it was the deepest low. I've ever experienced. He had no limits on that love, but the deaths of loved that I experienced from ATI was extraordinary. He also kicked my ass more than anybody has. He's hurt me more than any other person ever heard me, but it was always found it in a deeper love what I actually know as God is what I've seen in his eyes because I never had experienced on my own any divinity that grade often wondered people who spent their whole adult life following Jones. Do they ever regret it? I'm an older man now. I don't regret that because I was around in those early years when he was like in that kind of relationship. And the reason I was singled out. I mean, I can't tell you what but part of was, I really wanted that I was willing to give up everything for that. I really didn't care about who I was with what kind of job I had, what my future was going to be. Like I saw someone who was alive in the divine was offering me relation to come into that. And that's what I wanted. I didn't care about anything else. When I look at my parents lives, I see similarities to James. They don't have much money or stuff. My mom continues to work into our late sixties. My dad lives a quiet existence down the street from my mom. They're not together, but they're still friends in all the interviews and conversations I've had while trying to find out who Franklin Jones really was not. A single person told me they regret their time in his group. Many regret things that. Happened in it for sure. Not the fact that they joined. We're part of it. So I also wonder, are they telling me the truth. Maybe it's just too hard to admit. They made a mistake. We're going to get back to dear Franklin Jones in a minute.

And then it was brought to a meadow on the group's island in Fiji where Jones had said he wanted to be. Buried, James Steinberg, one of Jones's most devoted followers says more than three hundred people traveled to Fiji for the funeral. I wasn't there. I'd left the group about seven years earlier after being raised in it and being part of it until I was sixteen. Now I was busy living my own life. By this point I'd met the woman who would eventually become my wife, a poetry, reading, two thousand twelve. We got married in a Redwood grove and Big Sur. We rope homes together, traveled lived in New York for a while recently, moved to Los Angeles adopted a small fluffy dog with a black patch on his I who sleeps on his back in our bed. All the good memories have flooded over the bad ones. And while I was working on the story of Franklin Jones, my wife and I found out that she was pregnant a few weeks later while I was carrying out interviews with my parents. I got to tell them the news that soon I'd be apparent to. Now when I think about Franklin Jones, I think about my son. I wonder if someday decades from now he'll come to me, ask me to explain my choices to him the way I've been asking my parents to explain. There's. What will I say about Franklin Jones. If my son asks after all this reporting, I think I can see both sides. I don't believe that Jones was God who lived a perfect life culminating in a perfect death, but I also don't believe he set out to control or hurt his followers now that I have as good an idea as I ever will about who Franklin Jones was, what do I do with it? Give me your tension at any moment and do over with grace. The only thing I could think was that if God ever had a voice, he's what it would be, and I fell asleep listening to that, and I had the most extrordinary dreams. Believe my story. Here's a Bill. But I forgive in. I'm not a me. I literally anew. Jonathan Hirsch this dear Franklin Jones. Today. On my last day of interviews, I drive the winding roads towards Franklin Jones's property in northern California. It's been half a lifetime since I visited the complex where I spent much of my childhood as a member of his group. My mind is racing, how will it feel to be back Jones group hasn't really grown in decades by their own estimates. There are still about a thousand followers. It's hard to confirm the numbers, but there is one new guy living near the sanctuary that my dad's for James wants me to meet his name's nNcholas Wagner. Shows up with this. I pad playing a blues rock version of Hari Krishna. NNcholas is twenty two years old. He's handsome, freckled skin, blond hair. He grew up in South Africa, he's a modern seeker for him. Everything that happens is a sign, a story. And the truth is he's a pretty compelling storyteller. Like this one time, he's at a gym in Miami, and he meets a gene guy, and the guy tells him to go to the island of Taveuni his home. And suddenly has a tear in his eye. And he says to me, if you go to Viana absolutely changed the rest of. So nNcholas passes bags and heads detabe Uni. It's a boat ride away from the island owned by Franklin Jones. Kind of had this idea that I would eventually find a spiritual teacher. NNcholas starts working cutting down Bambu and eventually he ends up meeting in Australian dude, who introduces nNcholas to a member of Jones's group. NNcholas spent an afternoon with them, then they invite him to visit Joes island nNcholas goes. But at the same time, he starting to feel sick, dizzy and weak. One of Jones's follower sends him to the group's doctor. I sat down and immediately he knew what it was. It turns out a cut nNcholas gotten on his leg from some Bambu it become severely infected. He said, you have blood poisoning. He said, if you did not come to this island, you would have been dead. By the end of the week as nNcholas is recovering, a follower of Jones gives them an ipad with talks of Jones on it. Oh. When I heard that men Addidas some rush speaking for the first time for the first time. The only thing I could think was that if God ever had of waste, that is what it would be. And I fell asleep listening to that, and I had the most extraordinary dreams. You wouldn't believe. And I remember feeling like this being that's talking right now has been with me my entire life. So nNcholas dedicates his life to spreading the word of Franklin Jones meditating on him and living with the remaining followers of his group. Then in two thousand fourteen, he leaves Fiji and comes to California. He says, he's jealous of people like me who interacted with Jones in real life. And do you sometimes wish that you could have met him in person? There is not a David goes by that. I Don wish that. Me James, nNcholas, eat sandwiches together. I see a lot of myself in nNcholas, honestly, scares me a bit hearing him talk. I actually find myself trying not to make I contact. I also see how James nurtures him. Let him borrow is books and stays up late talking to him about the Dharma. He did the same thing for me. I leave nNcholas and head up to what was Jones's sanctuary. My stomach is doing somersaults and it's so dramatically different than I remember the hillsides are there in they've burned. All the way to the top of the mountain, the trees, the oaks are are naked on the mountain trees used to shroud the road on all sides in the winter when it would snow looked like narnia. This remote densely forested far off land, sheltered from the outside world. But today I can see for miles the few trees that remain charred and brittle. The place feels exposed to raging wildfires burning tonight in Lake County scorching thousands of angers threatening hundreds of homes, and it could be a while before firefighters get those parts.

So we didn't really have a connection to any one place and I'm an only child. So as a kid, there were really three constants in my life. Mom, dad, and Franklin Jones. Once I decided I had to become a follower, begin asking my parents about their spiritual practice for guidance on how to meditate with Jones and that summer between eighth and ninth grade. I started reading all of the spiritual books on my parents shelves. I started to meditate to listen to the tapes Jones made. I hope that by embracing my parents lifestyle, I get closer to them and the truth is worked now my dad and I were into the same things or I was into his things. He noticed me was finally joining them on their quest. I love you beloved. This is when I started writing these letters to Franklin Jones. I praise in awe in worship your all knowing state is another letter to Jones. Whereby through your divine life work, the world may cease to die mortal, worldly death, that only recycles consciousness and drip one by one into the infinite well, receiving. Rejecting us in the thunderous orchestra. If you're all pervading form. Attention at any moment and do oversee this grace. And that's when I. Wait a minute. I don't care how weak he's he's got to be polite. And somehow when I heard that. Kind of broke my heart and kind of broke the some sadness, that was an me. Good feel. She knows like how you many really wanted us back. I'm not a me. I literally am. Jonathan Hirsch this dear Franklin Jones. Not long after I made the decision to really dedicate myself to Jones's group freshman year rolled around. Now at school, I kept to myself mostly just read books, made a few new friends but never mentioned Jones. It was like he'd becomes such an all consuming part of my life at an even know where to begin actually developed an executive about approaching other people terrified that I would just not know what to say. Like the things I was learning in Franklin, Jones's group. Thinking about all the time, they were too big too strange. By this time Jones had moved back to his compound in Lake County few hours north of San Francisco. And one day he asks both Thomson, Kathleen to move closer to him if we wanted to continue to be working with him and treating him, we had a move up to Lake County. We had to make a commitment to come up there. My parents and I remember things differently. My mom says that soon after this on the way home from school, I asked her if I could drop out that I wasn't happy with my teachers, but that's not quite how I remember it. I did dislike school, but I also understood that my parents really wanted to go be with Jones. Like if you ever watched a friend fall in love with someone. They always smile when they talk about them, laugh a little too hard at the jokes, sort of like that. Parents seemed euphoric whenever they came from being with Jones, and in some way, me being in school, I was holding them back. So I out and we moved down the road from Jones's residents. His

"Jonathan Hirsch, this dear Franklin Jones. I was four years old and I began to grasp the Power jealous had over people over my family. At this point, we lived with another member of the group. She always had a big pot of hot water going for tea on the ground near the door of a room. I remember big puffs of steam floating out of it. Like most kids I loved running around the house and one time when I ran into her room, my foot landed in this bowl of boiling water. I immediately started howling my mom and dad rushed in and picked me up. They put acupuncture needles in my foot and repeated these words, new pain is necessary. No pain is necessary. They were the words of Franklin Jones part of his philosophy. Life is suffering. Their destiny is suffering. And so suffer is the first. Form of grace. After a few minutes, my breathing stabilized started focus. Those words seemed to work. I still felt the pain, but it seemed less scary. I guess in a way it was the first lesson I got from Franklin Jones. I spent my childhood in the San Francisco Bay area and on Sundays we'd meet with other members to worship Jones, but Jones himself. He was living on that remote island in Fiji with about forty of his most devoted followers. So in the early years of my childhood Jones was a picture. We worshiped voice on the cassette tapes played in my parents car. Wherever there is an other fear arises. So whole life every every moment of an ordinary life. Is that a very core built on the separate Salk sets. Therefore those nothing, but others centered otherness of separation in every moment. Each night as I went to sleep, my mom would put on this tape Jones's words. This one was written for kids read by young boy. It's titled what to remember to be happy. Nobody not mom or dad, or grandmother or grandfather or big sister, big brother, or teachers, or doctors or soldiers are reverence or athletes, or Moore's or TV stores or any before working or any people who are playing, not even the president, not even a king were clean, not even people who love each other. Know what a single thing is through this little kid Jones delivered a simplified version of doctrine. The world is unknowable mysterious that to be happy. We need to accept his doctrine as reality and focus on him Jones. He's kid language was called feeling the mystery as how everything is, but nobody knows what it really is or how. As long as we go on feeling this misery, we feel free and full unhappy and we feel free in full unhappy to others. This is the secret being happy from the term, your small incl- time you are. Old. I hadn't met Jones yet. Not at that point, but he was everywhere like a God and lying in my bed at night. Listening to those tapes, I felt safe and protected. His words were like a prayer promise. I have been doing this for a long time and it is best in most important feeling awhile. I am very happy. I could tell you maybe some day we will meet face to face, maybe. Appearance were grateful for these tapes. They still the complicated teachings of their grew into a language. I could understand they were part of a community that helped each other out daily chores, taking care of kids so that they could focus on their spiritual practice. But there were also a lot of rules. To be vegetarians, meditate twice a day, do calisthenics live communally and speak to other members of the group about any problems in their relationships or spiritual practice books like conscious exercise and the transcendental son with little illustrations of Jones, doing sons, how you -tations eating guerrilla comes in peace. The book about diet and love of the two armed form a book about sex and relationship that was pretty specific, including instructions about how to have sex, how to masturbate. My parents had the mall to be fair members were expected to purchase them, but there was one aspect of the group that Kathleen and Thomas had problems with community members were also instructed to watch each other so that you're accountable, quote, unquote accountable, immediate issues. Some of the. Pretentious and potential individuals at the gate. One of the things Thomas and Kathleen struggled with the most were these things called interviews, psychological evaluations that community members did on one. Another participation was mandatory. These interviews all revolved around this idea of the edible complex. You know, the Greek myth of Oedipus who killed his father and married his mother. It's not a new idea, edible complex. Freud talked a lot about it. Well, an ETA pull is really a psychological term, you know, or pump you'll sitting go in therapy for for a long time to try to sort out their relationship with their parents. And that's what we attempted to do. The community used this idea of the edible complex as a method for probing each other, pushing each other members with seek out painful memories involving someone's parents and the group would analyze how it had colored that person's behavior. They called it doing an ETA pole. Yeah, you know, there were people who were not very skilled who were doing your edible, and they were going to help you to resolve things. Well, that often turned out to be a mess. You know, there were people who wanted to be in the Power seat. And so of course they would start telling you what they thought of you. My mom says these sessions were hard to go through and not very helpful, and you had to agree with the group's assessment. If you rejected their conclusions you called spiritually immature, which was the worst kind of insult for a follower Franklin Jones at home. My parents even tried to each other's at a poll they comb through their early sexual experiences dug into childhood traumas, especially if it Kathleen, God knows I went through her whole life and exhausting, but it didn't do any good. I saw didn't do. Good. So my parents avoided these group therapy sessions. I remember them privately making fun of other group members for kind of being losers or acting as Jones's bureaucrats and taking the business part of Jones's religion too seriously. They kept a separate sort of for a long time. We lived in the city and my parents commuted to the sanctuary. But Thomas was close to one other member, James Steinberg, we started to relate to each other. It took me a while to finally realize that Thomas was. One of my best friends. James, you'll remember was a part of the inner circle that dealt with the fallout of the controversy in the eighties. James became friends with my dad right around that time started coming to him for acupuncture. Thomas was was always a deep thinker. And so we would have very spirited discussions always and we became heart friends. I mean, it was 'cause we were talking about our spiritual practice. Eventually, James connects Thomas more closely to Jones. He helps Thomas really messages even edit some of his letters to him without James, I doubt my parents would have become as close to Jones as they eventually did.

"Hairs. Boyd story airs and it's pretty damning supports many of the allegations and questions whether or not Franklin Jones Jones's group is a Colt on national TV, the group's plan to set the record straight totally backfires after that kind of close themselves off to the outside world. Both of the lawsuits result in out of court settlements. None of the plaintiffs would talk about how much money they were paid today. Opinions about Franklin Jones tend to fall into two camps, Don that the reporter calls them the alarmists and the apologists. The alarmist like Ford believe there. Franklin Jones is a dangerous leader, but the apologies like my parents and James and pretty much everyone else I grew up with dismissed the allegations of salt as the work of coal pesters like Ford, Greene, and over the top media coverage. This is always been hard for me to understand why would Thomas and Kathleen new parents. My parents decide to join a group that have been accused of these kinds of things. It wasn't June Thomas ever talk about it. Did you ever just like do remember ever being like. Is there something like ever having a conversation about the sexual stuff? Because it was a big deal. It was on the front page of the chronicle for multiple days. Did it just never come up. I'm just thinking that. We were so riveted on having a teacher who who had such a a radiant presence. So that kind of overshadowed. The aspect that he was being accused of sexuality with the somebody's wife when she pauses, I can tell my mom is searching for a way to explain what her thought process was. It was known that the guru. Would interfere with people's lives for the sake of trying to help you see what you react to and then how you might practice with that reaction or that reactivity. A lot of women in the community were really. Hot to sleep with the guru, and and I know the newspapers were very, I do remember how sensational. The reporting was, but that's not unusual for the newspapers, and I'm not trying to protect him. I'm just telling you what what I felt at the time. Thomas felt about the same, Chuck the sorted headlines up to puritanical American society, which was supposedly judging Jones for not being chased saintly figure like the Dalai Lama or Mother Theresa. I didn't choose to be in this group like my mom and dad moso not an outsider, like Ford or Boyd or dawn, maybe if I were be easier to judge Jones's character. Because there's another part of the story whole those crazy descriptions of what happens when you're around this guy, I've experienced it met Franklin Jones face to face. The truth is for years. I would have done anything for him. That's next time. Dear Franklin Jones is reported and produced by me, Jonathan Hirsch along with Ashley click and any AVI Lous our associate producer is Norrland.

The grew that my family followed was eventually accused of being a co leader. I know I have to do more than just read through journals and talk to my parents. I have to talk to his followers people. I grew up with people I haven't seen or even thought about it years. One of the people who knows the most about Jones is actually my dad's best friend, so I'm going to have cashew milk almond milk cashing in. Thank you. I'm fine with just a okay. And I'm going to take stevia or if you want there, this is perfect. This is great. Thank you though. This is James Steinberg. We meet other groups bookstore in northern California. James is in his sixties now and looks older than I remember. He's also the group's archivist wrote multiple books about Jones and what he calls the grew devotee relationship. James join Jones's group when he was eighteen and almost half a century later, even with Jones gone, he still devoted to Jones's teachings. There's pictures of him as an infant. Were you see, very extrordinary kind of quality about him. That picture here, I'll show you this one here. This picture here. I've seen this picture. So many times Jones is a baby sitting crosslegged on a blanket on a lawn Harris, wipe to the side. His eyes are partially closed at the age of two decided to assume identification with an ego walking crawling along the floor, and he saw a little puppy and you saw his parents and he saw that everyone's expecting him to be a particular way. So he said he could do that. So he did that and he'd became an ego, and then he kind of. Grew up like an ordinary person and part of why. He's been. It was able to teach so well as because he knew how we kicked because he had done that himself. When I look at this picture now I can't see what James describes now. I just see a baby, the normal baby. I mean, don't all little kids have a sense of wonder and curiosity. That's like the definition of being a normal kid, but as a follower of Jones, those seemingly ordinary details of his life become part of this extraordinary story, a creation myth, everything about him was proof. He was in lightened an everything. He did no matter how much it might hurt was supposed to be for our benefit. His followers. Give me your tension. Any moment and do over asleep with grace. I love this photo. This is the photo that grabbed me. She was Lucy was bright. He is very intelligent and we have had some laps and little by little. We realized it was nonsense, but I snapped because I saw it. I mean, it was so radical in my mind over this is there is not too. I'm not a me. My literally anew. I'm Jonathan Hirsch this dear Franklin Jones. I know the origin story of Franklin Jones. The way his group describes him. I've heard it countless times, but what was Jones like before he became the divine giver king, you know, like in elementary school in college. So I go look, which isn't easy. If he were still alive. Jones would be almost eighty now, and I reread Jones as auto-biography the knee of listening apparently use the word knee kind of like base or foundation. Like I've said before, the guy liked to talk in circles anyway, Franklin Jones grew up on Long Island outside New York. His dad's sold aluminum siding. His mom was a housewife, the family was Lutheran, tended mass on Sundays. There was also a younger sister, JoAnn, a message, her on Facebook. She declined to be recorded for this story, but you did tell me that Jones was precocious as a kid that he was individualism had a dummy named Corky. Apparently Jones was pretty good JoAnne. Says he was once invited to perform with a famous ventriloquist Paul wind chill, but I want to know more. So I get a copy of his old yearbook start calling his classmates. Jones

Whenever I go home, I'll invariably spend some time in my mom's storage space. It's like this ritual looking through old journals and artifacts from childhood pictures, birthday cards, old cassette tapes. You know, the kind of stuff you don't want to take with you, but don't really wanna throw away either. It's been about sixteen years since I left home and about a year ago, I was back in the storage space and I picked up an old diary. Yeah, a diary just bear with me. So a lot of it is just fourteen year old. Me experimenting with language mimicking books and poems. I'd read. There's plenty of normal angsty teenager, stuff, feeling misunderstood, like I was special in a way. Others didn't quite get. But the diaries also contain these letters letters. I had written to my parents grew Franklin Jones. I feel afraid to enter again into communion at feel so far away. My mind has been tricking me finding something to preoccupy my time. Weeding them is embarrassing. Sure. But mostly, I just feel bad for the kid that wrote them. I felt the pain of the social and conventional world fall away is closed. My impulse was to cry and grieve over all the horrible im- printed upon the heart, the body makes. I, but I realized soon after by your grace that this too is the ego. I love you forever. Beloved of my heart love Jonathan Hirsch. All the letters are in these spiral bound notebooks. The pages still smell like the sandalwood incense that was always burning at our house and I can almost see myself writing them cross legged in front of a framed photo of Franklin Jones. The grew, we worshipped. I see how hard I was trying to understand Jones's complicated doctrine to follow his instructions. When I was a kid, I truly believe that Jones was our benevolent master, a divine giver king a God. When I grew up and left the group, I learned that many consider it a Colt and Jones, a co leader and that some of his followers accused him of brainwashing and sexual assault over the years, going through old journals and notebooks and other stuff. My parents saved from that time. I started to wonder what really happened. Did this spiritual experiment that I grew up in? Did it in fact become a Colt? And if so. What does that make Jones's followers? Like my parents and me. Circling around these questions for years, but I never got up the courage to actually try and answer them until now. Give me your attention. At any moment and you over with grace. We were seeking for the truth Jones. Ran that thing with with an iron. I just remember seeing his is looking at me and going up. He is. You can have many spiritual experiences and bacillum asshole. Unfortunately, that is to. I'm not a me. I literally anew. I'm Jonathan Harish. This is dear Franklin Jones. Give me your tension at any moment and do oversee this grace. It is always poor through this body mind, which is no longer person using. Nobody here. No Franklin Jones. Nobody like you not here anymore. Totally absent to start. We need to go back a bit to nineteen seventy two. Actually when Jones was just starting out giving some talks at new age bookstore on Melrose avenue in Hollywood. This before people start to call Jones cult leader before he's accused of sexual assault, and he's already got some pretty radical ideas, but a wonder, I am. He I got, I am at ethanol generation before he has thousands of followers really any followers at all back when Franklin Jones is just a man in the United States is going through some huge changes.
