Those They Left Behind: The Victims of Roy Melanson
"His cabin they stopped at a gas station to put some air in the leaky tire and they had to buy some more beer because they're all out and it continued on their driver car jerked so the two men the shows with that day no surprise turned out to be Chuck Mathews in Roy Melanson so chuck gone out of the car underneath the chassis and so that Iraq had put a hole in the oil pan so michelle offered to give them in a ride in her car when they made it to town got to her car matthews got into the backseat with oak and Melanson wrote up front with Michelle Michelle drove them back to gunnison asmir thieves bonded with Oak Michelle Cherif Melanson yes it was late afternoon they arrived back at the Columbine Bar Matthews was really surprised though because then he overheard Melanson asked Michelle if she could drive him a few more blocks to where he left his truck now he hadn't even mentioned a truck Matthews Matthews didn't think he had a truck I mean if he had a truck why they've been riding around in his old terrible junker were to prove in itself untrustworthy in absolutely breaking down and leaking air and stuff that's terrible so that's a good question where we take in my old junker but he didn't say anything in Melanson told Matthews he'd be back in a while and rode off in the passenger seat of Michelle's car so matthew went into the bar but he was confused and he decided he'd wait for Melanson to come back and maybe he could give him a ride home in his truck but when Melanson and returned by nine pm matthews called a friend to pick him up and he thought that would be the last seat here this whole thing but the next morning Melanson Grove Michelle Wallace's Redman Asta station wagon to the JC penney storing gunnison and he wrote a fraudulent check to purchase a dress shirt and pants Georgia and Megan Wallace Michelle's parents were back in Chicago thinking that everything was Fine Michelle was alive and well and would be back soon they were really happy that she was going to working as a photographer in North Carolina but September second came and went without a call from Michelle and she promised Maggie that she would call her that day so Maggie called the sheriff in Gunnison to report Michelle Missing Ecorse it had only been a couple of days she was an adult so the dispatcher told her not to worry her daughter and probably just decided to camp for another day or two forgot to collar but Maggie knew better she knew Michelle and she insisted that Michelle would never do that so she persisted and she actually got the sheriff's Department to talk to her and to search scofield part so the next one warning the under sheriff went to Michelle's apartment and saw that she had never returned from her trip so they figure that Michelle could have had an accident the rugged country so the undersheriff co the crested Butte Police Department an SM to look for her car they call them back that evening saying there's no sign ever car. The Maggie's calling repeatedly she's just worried sick a massive search was started by the gunnison sheriff the crested butte police department and the Civil Air Patrol rose also many volunteers helping in the search also Michelle's remained gave the police Michelle's hairbrush I glass says to hold his evidence and this would pay off much later not right away because we're in nineteen seventy four technology and advancements in science in a long way to go through certainly did very minimal right right so it was on September six when Chuck Mathews heard about a missing girl on the radio and we heard the description of Michelle in her dog along with her last known whereabouts he knew that she was a young woman that he had met with Melanson on August thirtieth but of course all he knows about Melanson is his first name was Roy so matthews called the sheriff's department and gave them a description of Michelle of her dog and of her Red Mazda wagon the last time he had seen her was outside of the Columbine bar she drove away with a man who the only numerous Roy and this really sounded bad this made the case sound a lot worse were here it should have been less seen with a man she really didn't know right she just met no one knew who roy was or afraid even his real name then the next day ranch called the sheriff's Department to report that he had shot and killed a dog on September fourth in his dog matched oak description he'd get the thanks caller which had a tag with shells name on it and other people called until the sheriff that they'd seen the dog wandering around in the area since August thirty first again bad news because Michelle and oak had been inseparable yes she's missing in her dog is dead so it's really looking like foul play frakes but a fora was contacted after Chuck Matthews told the police that Roy had told him he had been killing coyotes for a sheep rancher in Scholefield Park Spatafora told them that he had employed Roy and he knew his last name it was worry Melanson regarded her name mill food yeah yeah but of course Melanson had left the area he had arrived in Pueblo and Michelle's Mazda on August thirty first and he had spent the night with sally the fourteen year old and got one of her sisters to drive him to where he had parked the Mazda he told her that a friend had left it there for him to us so at this point I really have to question Sally's mother Lucille Burdens judgment here what the Hell's going on it's almost like she's prostituting her daughter you know well he's kind of staying at their house it's very weird and I don't know where the father was I know he was working it didn't ever come home and see what's going on it's really strange disturbing situation that's an understatement for this time though Melanson seemed to be doing much better financially than the last time the Burton girls had seen him he had new clothes new camping equipment and a really nice camera now salad use the camp took a picture of Melanson laying on the couch behind one of her friends yes oh what's this man doing in the House with these teenage girls laying on the couch it's also creepy Dick I just don't understand it we don't have any information or any any reasons why her mother true things the way she do now I mean what I've read about the case there was always just the idea that he was such a smooth talker in so convincing but to me nobody's that convincing that you're going to let him hang around your fourteen year old weird hat royals yeah Melanson didn't stay in Pueblo very long on September eighth in Cedar Falls Iowa when he was there he joined Michelle's camera backpack and sleeping bag than in elk city Iowa he made a guy named Thurman Wilder in a bar and the two started talking while they're told him that he was a heavy equipment raider looking for a job and Melanson told him that he had a friend in Pueblo who owned a construction company and he was sure that his friend would hire wilder I think he was just trying to get a ride there I guess he was always trying to get something from someone he was with the conman are always still have was in his white Cadillac and when they got to Amarillo Texas Melanson duck the Mazda and he ended up writing the rest of the trip with wilder in the Cadillac Hitt told wilder that his car needed repairs and he was taking it to shop and they'd pick it up on the way back then on September twelfth an anonymous caller are reported a suspicious white cadillac that was hanging around a high school and the Cadillac was pulled over and Melanson said that he and Wilder just waiting to pick up Sally Burton at school which is pretty creepy right there your suit is but when Nelson's driver's license was checked the police discovered that he was wanted for rape and Texas so both Melanson and wilder were arrested and wilder gave permission for his car to be searched and the these funds several different items belonging to Michelle Wallace in the Cadillac these things included her car registration her driver's license insurance discard and also some of her camping equipment so there's no explanation that he's going to be able to give for that wouldn't appear to be so melanson was searched police found his unused best ticket from gunnison to Pueblo and found Semis two keys and two point tickets sleeping bag in a backpack then one of the offices remembered the beyond the lookout for a red monster station wagon on by Michelle while so let's solve this crime didn't we well no not really into which is a long way to go with that the Pueblo detectives are pretty sharp they contacted gunnison and learned about the search for Michelle the Amarillo police found Michelle's car it was abandoned one block from a bar recalled the hard hat lounge now the car was searched but nothing was found that would have indicated foul play so nothing they give us evidence and nothing that would help them and find Michelle of course they interviewed Melanson and he finally did admit to spending time with the Burton's and having a relationship with the teenage Sally but he denied that he'd ever had sex with sally you know they would just hanging around 'cause they had so much in common together you're just good friends sure I'll grown men have fourteen year old girl says their friends interviewed sally she told him that she hadn't Melanson in July your family's cabin and she said that she did actually have sex with him so restores here I'm thinking I'm going to bully sally absolutely he had traumatized her quite a bit and so isn't the statutory rape yes should be but you know you're gonNA find here that he really gets away with a lot for long time it's really frustrating after extensive interviews Melanson insisted on speaking to the FBI and eventually he said that he did remember Eating Michelle he said he had a drink with her in a bar and she had left her dog tied up outside then he said he'd made up an excuse to borrow her car and she had led him so he just taken off in her car and it never seen her again not very believable story no bishop since he had all her things on his position Russian was stopped that anyway we'll we'll take a story so investigators suspected Nelson in Michelle's disappearance so in three other Texas rapes and Texas murder and then the police in Louisiana also wanted to question mallets about a series of murders in their state great so it looks like he's just done a lot of crimes that he's gotten away with Chuck Mathews was brought in and he was able to identify Melanson as the man Michelle's car when he last saw them after that detectives were convinced that they had Michelle's killer but without a body the prosecutor wouldn't charge him with murder so they were kind of step yeah I mean I know this is forty five years ago so things are different because we've done some cases where they've prosecute you didn't prosecuted successfully people with nobody well it certainly can be done but you need a lot of other evidence where it sounds like they got your amount the first thing you know you have to be able to prove the person's dad that's the first obstacle where you have to be able to maybe not prove but beyond a shadow of doubt so did now same thing to me or care so searchers though they continue to look on the ground and from the for Michele Maggie and George Wallace her parents held out hope that Michelle would be found alive of course but a new about Melanson story and they knew it was a lie she wouldn't have loaned her car to a stranger but unfortunately no evidence was found that Michelle had been killed or like I said even that she was dead Maggie she'd never see her daughter again that started to set in and she fell into a really deep depression she was crying every day and people said she just looked totally lost six weeks after Michelle had disappeared the Colorado detectives asks for her dental

What do you think that means call? No true it means that governor is true. Yeah I first of all you don't you're misrepresenting not only the theme but the song the light of the song allowed always enjoyed talking to somebody when they won't allow the other person to speak. Would you listen to me for just a half a second and then you can take the show back over again. The line is in Birmingham. They love the Governor Boo Hoo Hoo they they did first of all do you. Where are you from actually from Florida? Okay what you don't what you don't understand them Birmingham thirty years George Wallace was not popular in Birmingham. He was extremely unpopular. I don't think he ever carried a Jefferson County. Which is one reason why the interstate system there are still a disaster and he was a takeoff on that that he was not popular Boohoo All over this was about someone coming in taking a shot at the south which they continue to do through today was the shot into south warranted or was. It just doesn't matter he does matter. I know it doesn't matter he was and it was another line. The song that now yeah hold on there was another line on that said Damn listen I appreciate.

Following Kamala Harris' Criticism, Joe Biden Defends His Civil Rights Record
"The exchange everybody is talking about from the debate last night is the exchange between joe biden and kamala harris in which she unfairly attacked him in the most cynical possible fashion she started off by suggesting that joe biden joe i really believe you're not a racist okay when somebody says i believe you're not a racist you know what's coming next which is all the reasons why she thinks he's a racist should that last night it was really cynical she then suggested that his lack of support for forced busing in nineteen seventy seven that this was reflective of a deep underlying racial animus that joe biden that cruel old man would have stopped little gung kamala from going to a school across town that's joe biden stood in front of that bus like george wallace at a school house door and stopped young comma from being able to attend the school of her dreams in berkeley california is bunch of nonsense cynical nonsense no one's still comma harass you know it's funny we're talking about forced busing forced busing was originally designed to achieve racial balance in the schools to achieve integration in the schools today there's more defacto segregation in american schools than there was back in the nineteen eighties so should we do forced busing now like kamla do you propose to forcibly bus tens of thousands of american school children across town to various schools both crappy a non crappy do you expect the parents won't then remove their kids from those schools do expect that will lead to a rise in charter schools or in private schools or home schooling what exactly proposing the beauty of comal harris does here is that she doesn't make policy proposal because if she did it would be unpopular instead she just implies that if you don't support a broad non non specific policy proposal that she apparently likes then you must have hated her when she was Child. She attacked Biden, Biden doesn't have a good response for it. i do not believe you are a racist and i agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground but i also believe and personal and i was actually very it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two united states senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of grace in this country and his second so there she's already being dishonest that's not what your biden said which biden said is i didn't like these guys i had to negotiate with them 'cause i'm in the senate now come on harrison's a radical she's never negotiated with anybody on the other side is one of the more dislike members of the of the senate particularly like there's certain senators like cory booker who has friends on the other side of the aisle i'm not aware that kamala harris has any on the other side of the aisle she's one of those cynical radical players in the senate when she suggests that biden is fulsomely praising segregationist it's nonsense you'll hear biden respond to that in a moment then she gets to her real attack which is that biden was going to prevent her from going to school when she was six it was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose busing and you know there was a little girl in california who is part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day and that little girl was me so i will tell you that on this subject it cannot be an intellectual debate among democrats we have to take it seriously we have to act swiftly as a torney general california i was very proud to put in place a requirement that all my special agents would wear body cameras and keep those cameras on Okay. shifts this right so she she gets a huge round of applause oh the first of all there are a couple of things worthy of note one she says in that clip we can't have an intellectual debate about this i thought that's what policy debates were were where we talk about the costs and benefits of particular proposals not the innate morality of the proposal not the implication that you are more moral than the other guy for proposing something that is completely unworkable which is what she's doing right here and then she doesn't shift to and that is why as attorney general and presidential candidate and senator i have always supported forced busing of children right that would be the logical corollary would for would be for her to say you know you didn't support for busing i do an enforced busing is the way we aren't as we ought to be forcing kids in public schools from different areas to get on buses and we ought to be bussing them forty five minutes here so that we can achieve my ideal racial balance that's our she goes notice instead she goes to and that's why i support body cameras that is the biggest non sequitur that is a huge first of all i support body but it's such a huge non-sequitur right you would expect her to say okay and that's why i support forced busing she doesn't so she's actually saying here's a policy that i may or may not support but if you don't support your racist because you're white and when i was young i could only go to school because of forced busing even though i can't really say whether i support forced busing now i like body cameras notice the it it's a clever move to biden has no response because he's on a democratic debate stage and everybody is pandering on this debate stage he can't really say to harris listen i want you and i always wanted people to be able to go to the best school possible because he didn't support school vouchers for example or the ability to move between communities on a balance area but not a fourth based on a voluntary basis to go to a better public school he's never believed in that so he can't actually say that then he can't say force busing was a bad policy not approved by the vast majority of americans because then she'll say are you saying that i shouldn't have been able to go to a better school when i was a kid right she's demagoguing the issue and there's no way for him of to get out of it the only thing he could do here is say listen if you're suggestion is that my opposition to a particular set of badly written policies in the nineteen seventies makes me racially insensitive you're knowing my entire history you say that you were a kid and you were affected by these policies guess who is fighting to open up civil rights in america this and eventually biden gets to this answer it just takes them too long and he doesn't look good doing it so here's a little bit more of the exchange You have been invoked your chance to restart. this characteristic my position across the board i did not praise racist that is not true number one number two if we want to have this campaign litigated who supports civil rights whether i did or not i'm happy to do that i was a public defender i didn't become a

'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem
"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

"george wallace" Discussed on KTRH
"We'll keep trying TC Michael what I wanted to, tell you was, that Trump and I mean this is a compliment to Trump Trump. Is like George Wallace was and I know you've had George. Wallace junior on your program a couple of times. George Wallace was my mentor I started campaigning. For him at sixty eight what I was seventeen years old when he was running on the American party ticket and Trump gets down, in the mud. With them which is good just. Like just like Wallis status, as far as I'm concerned George Wallace. Is the father of. Conservatism he was my mentor I know all these people try to make, him look like. A racist but he wasn't it was? About state's rights is what Is what it was about and they can't play for school prayer and, winning the war. If you go into it cut. All foreign aid to communist, countries you know just like just like. Trump does and I. Don't know why nobody ever mentions well he's not the father of conservatism, and he's arguably. Not even was not even conservative but He was, Representative Of the community he was serving and that should. Stand, for something, however to, me the moment the moment that turns George Wallace's career in in his historical legacy was when he lost, his first race and he lost his first race by suggesting that we needed to make some changes that We needed to make changes maybe not as fast as some civil rights activists wanted them. To be, made but that we needed to make changes in the candidate he ran against said that he loves those in the. Word the n. word was used broadly widely and that George Wallace is an n. word lover and his opponent painted to him with that and painted him badly. I, mean smeared, him and, George Wallace famously made the statement at the time that I will never be out in worded again and it was similar to a couple of deals with the devil that Lyndon Johnson had made When when Lyndon Johnson lost his, first race pappy Leo Daniels and said he'd never have another race stolen from him again. So he stole nineteen forty eight from, coke Stevenson did steal it and it wasn't just the Duke of Duval county, it was widespread theft but in the same way George. Wallace who was very ambitious politician said long before nineteen sixty. Eight that he'd never be in worded a he'd be never be out inward again he'd hate to blacks worse than the next guy hated the black and. The blacks and he would smear them with that and you see people in the Republican party do that not with race but. You see people do that with soft on crime or globalism was the big one this time And if, that's something you commend then that's your business I. Think that George Wallace, could have been I think, the George Wallace could have been a more respected more beloved leader in another time but in that time he, was cast the die was cast. And, once it was he saw that that was the role he had to play that's, the role that was the hand given. Him and for him to trade that hand for another would mean that, he would have no influence on the national scale when you get out of the issue of race George Wallace. Was probably more in tune with the southern voter And I don't just mean southern white boater. With the southern voter than than certainly than Lyndon Johnson was and probably that Huey long was before that and who a number of other Russell long I mean any of the guys J William Fulbright any. Of the guys that you can think of as being leaders on that level Outside of Nixon None of those guys at dinner fide with southern voters in southern values at that time and things that social issues that mattered like, prayer in school the role of the church and localized government The unfortunate thing is when the instrument when the issue that forced, the discussion of localized government was race then then the importance. Of localized government federalism in its purest sense tenth amendment. Is really no such thing as states rights because rights states can't have rights but what came to be known as states rights are Dixiecrats there is, still a very strong strain for that today A very saw strong strain for that today unrelated to race or civil. Rights there is a strong strain, for that on, issues of if a state wants to make their own policies with. Regard to outlawing abortion if a state wants to prohibit sanctuary cities if a state wants to. Have a different funding formula. For their schools or. Any number of other issues there is still an independent streak in strain that runs through particularly southern and, southwestern voters and that's also true of Colorado Nevada and Arizona a. Good portion of those and that is unrelated to civil rights the left held onto civil, rights because that's what the history professors in academe IX cared. About but it's on a string it's bigger than that And now those same leftists want marijuana.

"Good morning ana officials in indonesia's say one hundred and seventy eight people are missing after a ferry sunk on the island of sumatra the wooden vessel which was overcrowded with passengers and motorbikes went down on monday three deaths have been confirmed while two more bodies were discovered this morning only eighteen people have been found canada's parliament has passed a law to make the recreational use of cannabis illegal it's only the second country to do this off to uruguay it follows an election campaign promise from prime minister justin trudeau and a major shortage of gas which adds fister soft drinks and beer is starting to impact uk producers is being blamed on a number of factories which produce carbon dioxide either shutting for maintenance or suffering technical breakdowns drinks manufacturers are understood to be experiencing disruption at a time when demand is high during the hot weather and the world cup global news twenty four hours a day on and it took on twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts more than one hundred twenty countries i'm the unguaranteed this is bloomberg markus thanks very much indeed leon so no fizzle left in the you know paul moment well keeping a close eye on that situation i assure you over the summer we're gonna talk will next this as iran has put itself on a collision course with saudi arabia at this week's opec meeting it's all minister has rejected a potential compromise that would see a small oil production increase two apiece energy consumers as we head into this week long talks over opec meetings and discussions over in vienna i suppose the question is whether there is still room for compromise or whether iran and be johnson ganay the iranian oil minister sensually removed that room they seem to think they did didn't they we ain't gonna talking in soundbites we've been playing earlier on suggesting that they've got some sort of veto that it has to be a unanimous decision we'll see how how the iranian view goes down interesting made sure i'm ready to send a little bit earlier on on the middle east program and she was talking about how novak of russia of course have been calling for a one and a half million barrels increase the more expected ranges what three hundred six hundred thousand i think increase and she was describing that novak line is a nonstarter but he's this is the art of the deal is this learning from trump and how he likes to progress things so start over ten rather than any any serious suggestion of where we head i'm also pretty interested in the demand story here because we've set ourselves up to talk oil from a supply perspective because that's what opec is all about yet at this point we are caught in the midst of a trade spat between china and the united states and how that plays out for the demand side of things is going to be fascinating when it comes to the talks themselves though we're seeing sort of two blocks emerging here we've got the iranians and the iraqis on the one hand and then we have them facing off with the saudis and the russians on the other hand the question is where all of the others all of the other opec nations will fall in this spectrum between the two i mean we're talking about opec cohesion here this is a group that managed to pull itself together essentially and they've been quite good when it comes to compliance for about a year and a half we were reminded by stuart wallis that that cohesion that here hearings that speaking from the same hymn sheet very much the exception not the rule when it comes to opec history our colleagues george wallace for selling us yesterday and so interesting to see what we get from them in terms of the number and then what that really means that we what they say and then they'll be what happens what they do how much they pump again this sort of in the weeds and discuss what that means interesting also to ask where this capacity is gonna come from because we talk about opec increasing production as if they all have the capacity to do that they don't the saudis to the russians not in opec but part of that group they do and a couple of other names in chile within opec have that capacity but the others don't but they still might be given the theoretical ability to increase production even if they can't for example venezuela on the ground actually do so.
