"I mean falls apart coming all split it. I'll give it a right down the middle two point five. I do think there is some interesting commentary being made on the just obsession of male authority figures and like the fact that its military medical. You know because there's a lot to criticize about the way medical professionals some of them harbor a lot of bias sees and withhold medical care from a lot of marginalized groups of people. So i think it's interesting that it's these like military medical personnel and like all these industrial complexes that are obsessed with basically using female bodies as vessels to perpetuate their own very destructive agenda and. Yeah i think there's again these interesting parallels to be drawn about what's happening currently in the world in terms of groups of men being obsessed with controlling people with uteruses and denying people access to bodily autonomy. Yeah so. I think that's all an interesting thing that the movie explores. I think that as far as how effectively it does that that might be a little up for debate. But i think it's i appreciate that. The movie attempts something like that. I don't like how weirdly horny ripley gets for her. Children are alien children. I do appreciate that the main relationship that emerges and the movie that we are rooting for is between two fem presenting beings again. They're not human women but they are for all intents and purposes women. I suppose and that. That's the kind of most compelling relationship between characters and the entire movie Yes so there's some pros and cons of this very bizarre movie. That's obsessed with births. Imagery i will give it two point five nipples. Does that seem to high i. I've i think i'll probably me either. Okay all right And i will give them to the spider that gets shot to death by ron perlman I'll meet you at two point five. I think that there are a lot of really admirable swings in this In this movie and honestly this conversation has been so enlightening and helpful in clarifying some of those swings. And i also i mean i like your interpretation gracie that of of ripley as guide versus ripley as alien grandma And that resolves. I think like a lot of the like cognitive dissonance i was experiencing and i think that that's were. I wish that if that was the the canonical intention. I wish that that was that almost they hit. That'll harder 'cause like that's really like cool journey to track in a way that is clear and obvious i'll piggyback and what you said caitlyn i. I liked that. The the central relationship is ripley in call. I think that connection makes a lot of sense. I liked their mutual rejection of what they've been told about who like who they've been made to be versus choosing shoes like making a choice as an individual. That's also in the interest of the collective at the same time. That's such a difficult line to toe that. It's like the thing that i think this movie. Maybe does the most effectively and then there's a bunch of stuff that's like hit and miss that we have spent the last two hours discussing. So i won't rehash but i i think that two and a half feels good an admirable An admirable swig definitely Movie that like I'd like if not rewards on rewatching. There's definitely shit. You missed if it's been a long time since you've seen this movie and i think it's age in a really interesting way and watch it with friends. Don't watch don't watch it alone. Have a good night with friends. Yeah i'll do two and a half hour. We'll give one to that. Lady that dis. I'll give one to the basketball and i'll give the last point five to ripley eight. I on the other hand that this is a four movie that you both you will get four nipples to aliens. Both of you like something. I would have a couple of years ago. Yeah but yeah. I recognize that maybe a lot of what i love about. This movie is perhaps head cannon and is not necessarily super active in the movie. But i do think that a lot like there's a lot of male gaze going on in this movie direction is very very male gaze and i agree i mean. She's really sexy with the alien. But i feel like what that moment is supposed to be. An israeli sexy. Gordon weavers keeping her is still and moving her head around because she looks like sigourney. Weaver and moving fluid way but It's supposed to be heard choosing between her animal side and her human side and choosing humanity. I don't think that's the script. I think it's just onset. It became very sexy. But i'm gonna i'm gonna throw a nipple at at least subverting born sexy yesterday trope because toss it over your shoulder right into the basketball hoop because you know. And they're really surprised. That that's a side effect. And i'm gonna give i mean nipple to call for all of the reasons just Just i don't know it's winona ryder in sigourney. Weaver being being bad asses in a movie together like that does that. Does that does a lot for me. especially since part of the reason sigourney warning weaver got cast in the first place was from being very tall and everyone who was doing casting like this. I can see. I can see ripley. That's ripley walking in the room. And she like credits. Quote hooker boots about it. So as a short short person i like that. There's also known a rider being about us five three and i'm gonna give a nipple to the baby alien because i love the baby alien so so much and the lighting of the baby alien they apparently had to. Cgi off the umbilical cord when it was walking because it looked like a penis which is a fun little. I love that baby alien fact. There was like a cd thing that had to happen. It was the guy who did the weirdest editing. He'd had to do which. I dislike to me relates. Just a tiny bit. Even though johnson had anything to do with production to joss. We didn't really wanting vision to have a penis and having to be shown what that would look like to be told that is incorrect. That's a sidetrack. And i'm gonna give a nipple to the joss whitney dialogue because you know it thinking about the human being side. I love dialogue like that. And it just may lead character by my ripley being told. I thought you were dead. I get that a lot. that's a nipple for me. That's a nibble from me. Dog think four nipples gracie thank you so much for coming back and for helping us. Thank you for bringing me as a smooth meeting. Yeah happy that you watched it. You can skip three. I mean cute the brain alert about a alien cube. The more i dislike. I'm i don't think i'll ever see the need to see it. No no Where can people follow you online. Checkout your stuff. plug away I'm online on instagram. At greece gallon d. r. a. c. i. e. g. i l. a. m. and right. Now you can watch me and super host on shudder app. It is coming up on spooky season so good time to shut her up.

"And back So greasy. I wanted to start with you here and sort of let you lead us through. What are we missing about this movie. What are what about the popular kind of opinions surrounding this movie. Do you feel very differently about okay. Let me make my plea for alien action. Okay because. I think that it's really kind of i really don't like that. This movie becomes so obsessed with making ripley into a mom. Obviously it wasn't written as female took a long time for the writers to conceive of any of the characters not being men and even longer for them to think like ooh what if it was even though lead and then the sequels like back story was actually a mom. We're going to take that away. Also like be a mom this whole movie which was cool at the time because she's doing a good job at her job and being a mom which i guess like historical context is powerful and then the third one. She's pregnant the whole time but with an with an alien and like it's like and then it obsessed with the fact that she is female bodied. Because she's on a planet of rapists that only rape female body people apparently have a religion that women are bad and temptresses and should be kept far away and like to me that ruins the metaphor of it. What i like about this monster is it's a rape metaphor where everybody has to have birth anxiety and i think a lot of movies that included right metaphors are very very gendered and i liked that. It isn't doing that but his movies are kind of obsessed with ripley being a mom or not being a mom and please be a mom. And i think alien. Resurrection has the opinion that reproduction is disgusting. And you think alien reproduction is disgusting. Like human reproduction. Also disgusting terrible for the mother and aliens are gross and other and to be killed but they are because of us at the zena wharf like there the way that they are. The don't like i don't know i feel like a lot of visine. Morphs span qualities. Come from us and we see that in this movie with the alien sacrificing the other one they kind of seem naturally high minded or even like they might have whale type intelligence and consciousness of the group answer whales but because they are partially us they have this disgusting individualism. And then it's gonna take it. Even farther were then. The reproduction becomes human. And then the baby becomes grotesquely more human. Like and then like this alien baby who i i love and i'll give all the nipples to like i love alien baby and the way that they light it so maybe to get sucked through a whole love alien baby for alien movie. They really make you watch her. Yeah they really make you watch. That baby died. But like even when it's like even when it's attacking you don't know whether or not it's attacking. And i feel like that's the human not like the the zeno morph that were used to age very very quickly but this is more human and it's seems emotionally volatile and doesn't have a prime directive and at one moment will be very very cute and cuddly but then also screaming and like as if it wants to attack you and sort of how is that different than a human baby and i think let's call and whatever feminist about these movies is like the world is like ripley's should have a baby like why didn't you have a baby. Two hundred and eighty four years ago. Or whatever and ripley always chooses to save humanity instead of like an individual family and like in that way is much more parental In heroic than like just like. Let's have this character via mother who wants get home to see her daughter's eleven th birthday. So what i love about this. I feel like you really get into wit. Who is discussing is it. The zena more for is the humanity that they have adopted genetically and this movie is just really like reproduction. In general is disgusting. It's gross when robots do it themselves. It's gross when we clone things. It's gross when aliens have babies and is also gross when humans have babies. It is terrible and disgusting. And why is there still humanity and the year twenty three. Whatever this is. I mean i i thank you for like. Lay that out for because it feels like this movie has not gotten this about of of like love and attention to detail. I'm so interested in that. Because that was like i still have a lot of confusion honestly and like some criticism around this movie but i did like one thing that really hit for me in ripley eights. Character in this movie was an i. It's i guess that they explore it kind of thoroughly. It's all over the place but the idea that she is considered worthless after the baby has been taken out of her and like i think dan hi deo literally refers to her like she's a sack of meat to us at this point. We don't care if like that. That does say something about how we and today years still kind of characterize mothers or how people with with wombs characterize after they've you know quote unquote serve their purpose and perpetuated the human rights and all and all of that and how ripley eight is determined to continue to just like find purpose and meaning and whatever that means for her after. It's clear that the structure in in which she has been brought in to has seen her as outliving her use. Like you can apply that to motherhood you apply that to aging in general and like. She feels confident that she still has purpose and wants to keep learning more about herself. After people have told her that she no longer is useful so from from that perspective. I really like. That's the part of ripley aids journey. That i felt was really effective. And there's a bunch of other stuff. Also right my my. I think there could be a parallel drawn between some of the stuff. That's happening in this movie. And the things that are happening in texas right now as far as to say the abortion ban and like an obsession of being in control of the bodies of like childbearing people where this movie. I guess i was. Maybe oversimplifying things. In my brain in terms of like this franchise does get more and more obsessed with like reproduction. Especially as it pertains to wombs and birthing and mother hood wear like the first movie. You just establish that Basically anyone can get impregnated by these face huggers and then you give birth out of your chest. And that's what we see happening to john hurts. Character aliens heightened where we see that happening. I think too few different characters. And then we see like the m- the queen mother laying eggs and then like ripley becomes a defacto mother to newt. And then it's like you said this kind of like cannon gets retroactively established that she was also previously a mother. I would say aliens three. There isn't quite so much like birthing type imagery and metaphor but that she's saved and she's precious because she's pregnant with an alien. Yes that's true that's true and then this movie like we've hinted at. There's so much imagery like every few minutes..

"So and then the queen who. Thanks to ripley now has a human reproductive system just described as a gift that the guy has been trying to train. The aliens dislike her gifts to her. Was the human reproductive system. Which the movie does subvert. Because the alien is so obviously in agony. Which i like this movie. That is so obsessed with this one woman's maternity this movie at least is this disgusting like human. Reproduction is disgusting. As opposed to the other movies that eggs bad human human maybe good you be mother and aliens riding around with in agony here. You're just like why is everything. So horny and painful seeming in this one. Equal parts horny and pain. Okay so the queen has now has a human reproductive system and then gives birth to this half alien half like it has a human skull face also meows like a cat. And so that's ripley's grand child and the trainer guy after watching ripley. I mean if anything play the role of father in this relationship then he says look he thinks you're the mother which i think is really funny and more critique of men viewing the thing rather than like actually making ripley be the mother or the mother is like well. No it destroyed. its mother. thinks ripley is. it's god midst. it's really anyway maybe. We're getting into it for the plot. I didn't click for me like why are you talking about. She's obviously not the mother. You didn't watch the whole birth and sex scene coon. He's really chilling in this cuckoo. He's sons. I know there's actors photo looks exactly like a picture of buster keaton like costume. That actor is Brad dorothy who played worm tongue in lord of the rings as well as he is a major character in one flew over the cuckoo's nest. So okay he's got range anyway. Okay so there's all the weird like horny. Incest jewel cuddling once. You forgot his most important crack. Brad dora is the voice of chuckie. Why god dora has appeared in a number of horror films most notably as the voice of chuckie in the whole child's play franchise he's cannon chucky. I also think he as him like as an actor like not. Just him voice acting chucky but i think he's also in the chucky movies as a different character as well but i might be completely missed remembering no. I think you're right. Charles lee ray. Who i think is like the serial killer who's trapped inside of or charley. Yeah he's like one. Of the bad guys in chucky and also the real bad guy which is which is i watched shuki for the first time last year and i was like this is pretty good i liked it kinda holds up. Yeah i was like check. Yeah and then. I watch aubrey plaza chucky. And it wasn't that bad. It wasn't good as original chucky but you know maybe we'll i. I don't know if we have anything to say about chucky on this particular show but it was fun. Sure sure so anyways. Chuck us in the movie. Schalke's in the movie he dies. There's been all this horny in sexual cuddling. And then ripley runs away and heads toward the buddy ship but the weird alien follows her and gets onto the ship as well and ripley and such a revealed though. Oh my goodness trying to close the door and then the baby alien helps like oh baby alien. Good or bad. That scene i the when kilo killing. I watch this together. The first time And i was like. Maybe i just haven't been paying close enough attention because i feel like this whole dramatic cutting back and forth feels very bizarre unearned but then i watched it a second time. I'm like no. It's still feels that way where it's like something about the editing in the scene where it just keeps cutting to sigourney weaver for a little bit too long where she's who come back like terrifying like sucked through a whole bad cgi. I loved it. I loved that scene right so confusing. Because what's about to happen. Is that ripley in. Call have to deal with the alien. Who's gotten on board the betty and ripley flings her acid blood onto a window and it creates this whole and then the weird cat human alien get sucked out of the hole into space in. What is one of the most disgusting like body horror things. I've ever seen take time in the movie really milk for a long time. But not before ripley. Kind of makes out with the alien aka her grandchild. Cottle's it's like horny nuzzling. Yeah it's very it's very charged. Yes and then. The movie ends with ripley in call arriving on earth. And they're like wow it's nice the end so let's take another break and then we'll come back to discuss.

"We are back. I figured to start us off. Since this is the fourth movie in the franchise i would just do very very quick recaps of the first three movies Where alien from nineteen seventy nine is about an alien that makes its way onto a spaceship and kills the whole crew except for ellen ripley and jones and johnny the cat yes fun fact is credited as jones would. I think is very funny really as that. Jones e. stage name. It's like it's just jones please jones. I wanna jones the at a bar and really pick their mind. So aliens from nineteen eighty. Six ripley is brought along to advise on this military operation. Because something may be aliens question. Mark is thought to have wiped out a small population that is tariff on a distant planet. Turns out yes it is aliens. There's this big mother queen alien. She has all of these offspring and they kill everybody almost everybody except for ripley and this little girl newt Who escape into space alien. Three from ninety two picks up right where aliens leaves off. Where ripley i think. Crash lands onto a planet where the population is all of these prisoners. So this so it's sorry. So it's like the ridley scott when james cameron is aliens which is mommy and then david fincher is the one. We're talking about alien. Threes for for those who are not into the franchise. I feel like these. All these directors have very recognizable styles at the gym and it kind of like helped my brain. Click a little bit. Yeah yes so alien. Three directed by david fincher so she crash lands onto this planet full of like religious extremists prisoners. There's also sex criminal prisoners. Yes they all have y y chromosome so they're like extra mail extra aggressive fincher very early career and like was the fifth or something director attached to it and they were writing that one as they shot it. Y- aches you can tell Anyway ripley has unknowingly brought an alien along with her to this planet and it kills a bunch of people and then she kills the alien and also has to sacrifice herself at the end because she has been impregnated with an alien death by mommy. Yeah so then alien. Resurrection which is what we are talking about today. We are on a military medical research. Spaceship that is floating through space. These scientists have cloned ripley end. We see them surgically remove an alien fetus from her chest cavity. It's worth noting that the the difference between this alien being removed from a chest cavity all the other times. We get to see that in this franchise is. This alien is not circumcised. This one definitely has foreskin. It had foreskin. Yeah wow. I watched this movie twice. And i did not get. Wow this is this move. You're really rewards rewatch like wait a second things have. I'm very interested in tokyo. In this franchise like later in the episode. How the idea of an alien parasite is treated differently in male characters versus female characters. Where i feel like with the men. It's truly like a parasite and you're like it out of me like yucky but within with a female characters it's like oh bird and you were. It's mommy you would think that the the the parasite would behave the same regardless of who. It's inside but it just seems to no way knits inside someone with a womb and it acts a little different. And i'm like you guys you guys think it through. Yeah also because ripley is a clone. She doesn't have the same cognition and memories as the ripley. We've come to know and love and the other three movies. Although she does have some of the memories and then she develops more cognition throughout the movie right but first she's almost kind of like a baby herself to space jam. She's born sexy yesterday but she does know stuff Yes it's like. Oh yeah it's like a variation on sexy. Yesterday he was born sigourney. Weaver today with some of sigourney. Weaver memories fly this time. She has a manicure Important because he's an alien that's how you know and like sigourney weaver mean in my mind like she can do no wrong. She's the hottest person on the face of the planet. She's amazing but the the things she she's doing this movie that whole like there's i would say approximately five hundred birth metaphors a minute. Conservatively is easy. But the one where she's like kind of hatching out of a cuckoo and the movie really like let's you sitting it and she's like that she like. Where are we france. We're in france space france Okay so the alien that they have removed from ripley is a queen. Anne in the military scientists plan is to have that queen reproduce because they want to tame the aliens train them weaponize them etc make vaccine vegas. Yeah and we love vaccines. So i'm actually find with them doing that. And then ripley warns them that if they try to do all of this stuff. Everyone's gonna die then. The crew from this like commercial freighter again basically space. Pirates boards the military vessel. This crew includes johner. That's ron perlman call. That's winona ryder other people who i don't recognize. So i got a list the actors but reese christie hillard and then captain elgin they are there to bring cargo to peres that stan high day And it turns out that this cargo is bunch of human bodies that are in some sort of like cry. Oh stasis sleep that the scientists will use these people as vessels for the face. Huggers that come out of the the eggs that the queen lays to impregnate so that the aliens will reproduce so thank you for that yet. Thank you for that no matter how many times i hear it. I can't get that piece of information to live in my brain like a parasite. I'm just like huh In ten minutes on on the to hear that again totally fine yes. So this the cannon that has been and the other alien movies is that a queen lays an egg. What comes out of the egg is a face. Hugger impregnates a human usually host and then an alien fetus bursts out of the human hosts chest and grows very very quickly into a full adult alien. That goes on to kill people however as we will find shortly this kind of just station. Reproduction process changes in this movie. Well it's in the first movie that canon is that they're all like it's it's kind of sexless reproduction. Like the set. Looks like they're turning. The captured crew members from the first film of are turning into eggs. And i know that ridley was really interested in that and what i think is so cool about this monster. Is you know i didn't. I don't think anybody thought about it as a rate metaphor until they hired a woman to play the lead. But it doesn't really work really well as one i think and in this non gendered way which is what wrong with alien cubes like. Let's complicate mug. Metaphor was just the plot. It's mother exclamation point but like the first movie..

The patriarchy's fm vast start changing it with the dell earth man would a shit hole damage true. Where's the lie. Whereas the li- i love a movie. Who's last line really thinks they're doing something but actually just serves to remind you that you know nothing about the character. You've been watching for two hours. I have no idea. I've never been here. You're like wow beautiful inspiring and it's sigourney weaver and winona ryder being like. Wow look how pretty it is but it had already been established in the movie. That earth is a shithole. so i don't understand what that's about but then they got the they must have. They landed you know somewhere. Pretty and they they gas let themselves into thinking. It doesn't suck ass here. Which does they shot a version of the ending of the movie with the same dialogue but them in front of green screen with a desolate paris in the background at broken eiffel tower. And like they're like the military is going to come get us in then winner under the writers like will you get pretty lost in a place like this. What do you wanna do. Then it's the same. I don't know i'm a stranger here myself but it's just like desert land paris in the background. That's kind of fun but also much like a lot of thoughts is having this movie. What and why. I am so excited to talk about this movie. That truly i mean for bechtel cast listeners. there's just i think most of the time we have a we have a grip on at least what sort of going on. But this is one of those rare episodes. Where i'm like i. I'm see i'm so excited that we have a wonderful returning guest to To be our little. Titanic lifeboat with the movie alien. Resurrection nineteen ninety-seven aka a movie. That struggled defined watertight compartments to fell men because titanic was shooting next door. Yes okay so really quickly. This is the bechtel cast. Welcome to it. I'm caitlyn toronto. i'm jamie leftist. And this is our show where we examined movies through an intersectional feminist lens using the bechtel tests simply as a jumping off. Point jamie remind me please. What is it. The bechtel task is a media metric invented by queer cartoon as allison. Bechtel sometimes called the bechtel wallace test. there's a lot of versions of it are version is get ready this. We require that two characters of a marginalized gender with names speak to each other about something other than a man for two lines of dialogue and that it has to be a meaningful interaction and we can't get more specific about that. You know when you see it and yes that's basically the test this move. I mean i the the ways in this in which this movie passes are so joss weeden. And i don't really mean that as a compliment and we have a wonderful returning guest. She is an actor. You've seen her in teen beach movie z. Nation and the new movies streaming on shutter app called super host its gracie gillam. Hello everybody thanks for having me back. Welcome back i'll come back. I think we should open this episode.

Then revisited them. I think just because they were on. Hbo max or whatever and watched the two thousand and three director's cut which i think is just wildly better. The tension in the director's cut. I think is so much better than when you wouldn't even like after watching director's cut rewrote. We watching alien is good. It's good but the the amount of like not a lot of movies. I think benefit from long shots of hallways the two director's cut of alien very much does and then they went through and watch more of them including the i alien versus predator and alien. Resurrection is by far my favorite alien movie. And maybe among like easily top ten or fifteen movies for me. I think this movie is doing everything to doing. I know that this is not a popular opinion. Now i love it. I love coming in hot coming. In hut critics have a rotten tomatoes rated this movie fifty four percent. Fresh and the audiences disagreed with a thirty nine percent. And i'm gonna disagree with both of those. It's a hundred percent at least ninety two. I so fascinated. I'm truly so excited. Because i'm like i'm at a point where i'm just confused and so my mind is very open to being changed. I'm open to. I feel like i can be taught here. I'm curious did you watch. Alien cubed the third one. I've seen it. I didn't i knew that caitlin you had it's honestly it's skill bowl like you know like the first episode like people say you can skip the first episode of star wars star wars movies like it's it is pretty simple. You don't know enough to know very much from it but in terms of You watch it and the theme is just ruined in. Your heart is ruined and then resurrection after that is very healing and satisfied. Ooh that's like in in the order. It seems like i did watch a bunch of franchise recap videos just to understand where exactly this is all coming from. Because my history. With the alien franchise which listening i mean basically is all contained in the feet of the show where i've seen alien and aliens because we've covered it on the show. This is just i. This john is so for me. I cannot follow i get confused. Everyone's wearing the same outfit. This is why. I can't do war movies also like i don't know who that is. They're all wearing the same outfit. And when people are on spaceships the whole movie It's like you're saying gracie it's a lot of hallways. I don't know i'm not built for it but it's so fr- like do either of you have a genre or just like a vibe of movie that it's like It's hard for me to connect with. But i want to. I want to and alien resurrection. I mean it certainly held my attention because so much is happening. The tone of this movie for me was so all over the place on the edge of my seat just to see what genre the next scene was gonna take place in. Where like there's like the seed where it's like..

"Cdc work on sugar and obesity and diabetes and health. And so we're really just again trying to expose things that maybe are companies. Don't want out there. Yes sir seemed to be a range of things you guys focus on. But that is the connective tissue is. You're going after the the big companies out there. I saw stuff about bill gates investments in agriculture which you mentioned earlier the sugar lobby in artificial sweeteners. so several issues that are important to this audience. I hope they do check it out. Yeah and it's important to say that they companies that we have highlighted or the corporate interests or the organizations have really tried to shut us down. And i've worked really hard to do that. And there are again internal documents that show that so if there are people out there who want to support us we would welcome that. Yes cheers and in terms of social media links. your website future projects. What should we tell them about following up on this if they want to keep tabs on what you have going on. Yeah so well. Us are tk dot org and we're also on twitter and we have a facebook page. And then i'm on twitter myself. I love for people to follow me and engage. I tried to put breaking news documents up there as much as i can. That seems to be way to get him out. And my own website. Curriculum dot com. You can see articles that have written. I write for the gardy news outlet as well fairly regularly see can guardians in international news agency and host. A lot of information there so Lots of places to follow me your check it out and i welcome. My website has my email and phone number. And i welcome inquiries and news tips and things like that so please reach out and on the your story phone number now. That is bold of you. That's dedication but yes you also do have a high quality twitter feed rare to see these days but it is there a lot of good information i learned. Just perusing that so keep up the great work. I really enjoyed both books. You are extremely knowledgeable in your niche and we are lucky to have you fighting the good fight and thanks for stopping in to talk to us today. Best lock take care out there. Well you're very kind for having me back at you. Thank you right on. And boom goes the dynamite. What a dedicated and amazing journalist kerry is just so impressive. If you ask me. I know some people might think that when you consider the full totality that is the thc iceberg. This is not as deep as some of the more out there things we get into. But i've been looking for creative ways to poke holes through the common phrases here in these days without over focusing on it directly these almost evangelical declarations to trust the science and the steam. That no matter what unethical or criminal activity accompany has been convicted of in a crisis. We just got gotta acquiescent. Follow their advice. They're the experts. Criminals are not when we really do know it's all tainted by their own incentives and we cannot trust the compromised media to report on things accurately a lot of people acknowledged the greed and the cutthroat business practices. But i guess they have a belief that there's some magic line that doesn't get crossed and sciences science and data's data and that's neutral but another thing i wanted to remind people of obviously is how toothless arbitrary fda an epa approvals for safety can be in. Today's world. I wish it wasn't that way. Without regulation at probably be worse but we need some checks and balances to keep the corporate people out of the regulation department when these companies are willing to spend billions of dollars to capture everything. You've got to be pretty vigilant. And we're not. I think we've learned just how easy it is to control the narrative around certain things when a company is committed enough as kerry said the tobacco industry. Playbook definitely still being passed around. And you got to be pretty dense to not see all these factors in the case of monsanto and wipe assayed because it's a pretty glaringly toxic example yet people still buy it because it's at home depot so it must be okay that said all of these themes to me are very important in today's world and with today's dominant narratives and conflicts of interest. I would hope it would be a natural progression but at the same time if you're actually presented with the information on how many midwesterners the lawn or a garden or still using roundup. I'm pretty sure you'd be shocked. By how many have it in the shed right next to the lawnmower on the blow up kiddy pool so we do have a long way to go but today we talked about a template template that i hope more people start applying to other situations and industries. But hey i just lead the horse to the unchlorinated. Water can't make anybody drink. Although the sad state of everything definitely makes me want to but as journalists as an expert in her area carey is so high level. We also recorded this. Just before this recent foia document released that offers even greater evidence fao funded gain of function research on corona viruses. In the wuhan lab. But i'm sure her organization. Us right to know u. s. r. t. k. Dot org is all over it because it only further confirms the perspective she offered on that whole situation. When talking about non-life investigations that. Us right to know is currently involved in. I've heard two recent glyphosate pieces of news as well one being this emerging data that biofuels being burned and getting into the air is a huge problem because they use glyphosate soaked corn for a lot of the biofuel and you really shouldn't be burning that or breathing it in summer even saying it's a major exacerbated of cova symptoms obviously we had a lot of people trying to overlay five g. coverage areas with hotspots. And honestly i just think it's industrialization in general cities are.

"Going to head off claims in the future because they don't want to stop sign it they definitely don't want to put a warning label on it saying it can cause cancer if they acknowledge it can cause cancer. You can't spread directly on food. Crops anymore the epa that should be disallowed and it could really harm sales and ballroom use around the world. So what they have said is because most of the claims that they've been facing come from people likely johnson or you know alvin albert affiliate like regular folk. That are out there not farmers. They've said they're gonna stop selling it for the lawn and garden market. Stop selling to consumers. And they'll stop doing that by twenty twenty three but they are not going to stop selling it to commercial applicators and farmers and they are not going to put anything on it that says it causes cancer. They say so how they marry that with keeping litigation at bay is enough. They haven't cracked yet. They put several proposals forward to federal court. Judge who's in charge of all the federal litigation and asked him to approve different plans. They wanted to put in place in order that nobody could many trials for four years. The judge said that was crazy. They told the judge they want to set up a science panel. That would basically mean that juries would not be involved in deciding whether or not it causes cancer anymore. It would be up to a science panel that they would help. Appoint to decide that question. The judge said no bad idea. Not gonna do it. You know lots of different problems with the plan so right. Now there's a trial going on in california here in august twenty twenty one and we'll see how that comes out bears trying very hard to get a case to be taken up by the us supreme court and they want the us supreme court to agree with them. That the fact that the epa back stem and says that it's safe and find to sell that that should preempt all of these lawsuits and should preempt all of these claims and if they can get that ruling then they think they'll be home free so that's their key strategy right now. Yeah that tactic to remove the product from retail shelves but still sell to commercial. Farmers seems like tactic to just get it out of sight out of mind. There's so many chemicals as you mentioned and somebody pesticides go on our food. We don't know the names of it. We don't know the terms. They're not as as popularized as glyphosate. So have you can just take round up off the local home depot shelf. Well who's really digging into. What big using who's really going to know you know. People are too lazy to dig beyond that surface level. So seems a pretty strategic. I would say very strategic and and aimed you know. Of course it appeasing investors investors have been very angry with bear For buying monsanto and there have been several investor lawsuits and they've tried to topple management at bear. You know the stock price has really suffered Bears lost a lot of market capitalization because of its acquisition of monsanto. And and these you know this rate train of litigation it's been threatening to run the company down The investors have been very unhappy so It's been deemed one of the worst corporate acquisitions in history. Yeah that's one of the silver linings to me of all. These multinational corporations swallowing each other up. Is that the ones that remain. Have to pay for the crimes of the ones they absorbed and it seems like a pretty heavy burden to bear in a real domino effect. That can happen so happy accidents. And i'm happy to see it. Continue if they wanna keep monopolizing everything and swallowing up more and more stuff to the. We just have one big corporation. Good luck because you're gonna have to pay out a lotta people for a lot of unrelated incidents from all the other companies that you bought up and before we really close us out. We got to save a little time to talk about. Us right to know. Tell the people what you guys are doing over there because if we're looking for solutions and we're looking for the right organizations to support. They should know a little bit about this one. Well yeah thank you for that part of this. Little tiny nonprofit were called. Us right to know us rt k. Dot org is the web site and we're not super splashy or super polished. But what we do. Is we file freedom of information act requests and state records act request and really are all about getting data getting documents and then putting them up on the website for free six. A lot of money sometimes gets these documents but putting them out there for public consumption for other journalists to us or policymakers or lawyers or advocacy groups. Anybody really who can benefit from this truthful information. That's often hard to get. And we know how to do it. I've had to sue the epa twice in the fda once my colleagues are very involved you in we get documents from universities around the country and state regulatory bodies. In cdc fda usda epa nih a lot of different organizations and groups use our documents and binding quite helpful when they're the basis stories in new york times in la ta. You know newspapers around the world actually have relied on our documents important stories so as were small. We rely on donations. We don't take any corporate money. We only take money from individuals foundations or not other nonprofits so we can use all the support can get. But i think it's good work. It's honorable work in. We're hoping it's helpful in some regard. Yes definitely and just so. People have a sense of the wider focus. What are some of the non glyphosate related issues that you guys have been covering while right now you know in addition to and it's not just glyphosate and we've looked at different pesticides. I'd do a lot of work on pesticides in every chemicals of course but right now we're looking at the covert issue you know and the origin issue and been focusing getting e mails from the different scientists who were involved in that and trying to track money flow and the different narratives that have been put out in sort of these subterfuge in the contradictions from public narrative. And then what was being discussed privately. And it's really. I mean. I think we can take some credit different news outlets of cited our work and our emails that we've obtained as you know driving the biden administration's called for an investigation into this origin. Question because it is important to understand gain of function research. That's going on that. Our government is funded that's going on in laboratories around the world to make viruses more violent and understand what that means. There have been lab leaks. That have been documented around the world. It's important to understand what we're doing what we're funding and what that means for public health and if this was a lab leak in some regard would be important to know that right so that maybe we can help. Make sure it doesn't happen again in some way. And we've done a lot of work with cdc documents and shown how cdc is unfortunately has very powerful connections to very powerful companies like coca cola and other food beverage interests that influence.

"These days. Wouldn't it have been nice. If at some point we had at least tried restore some faith in our corporate rate at institutions because when our politicians and media companies are reduced a pr mouthpieces for industry. Giants the inmates truly are running the asylum regulators. Today do more to protect the profits of the big multinational corporations than they do to truly investigate on behalf of the people and rarely. Do you find any major news source saying anything to conflict with those profits. Either it creates a world where you really can't trust anything from weed killer and water quality to cigarette cellphones and pharmaceuticals. Many of us. Have a feeling that there might be more risks and consequences to these things than we realize. But who's doing the real investigating who's asking the critical questions. Well they can feel few and far between but when it comes to monsanto roundup and quite say today we have one of the premier critical question asker dedicated investigative journalists carry gillam carry a spent thirty years covering corporate america at the last twenty years focused on food agriculture pesticides. She's written great books on the subject entitled whitewash the story of a weed killer cancer and the corruption of science and most recently the monsanto papers deadly secrets corporate corruption and one man's search for justice. She spent seventeen years with reuters and his now research director for us. Right to know an investigative nonprofit focused on public health issues and it is a pleasure to have her with us. The weed killer critic from kansas the big agriculture agitator and investigative journalist extraordinaire kerry gillam. Welcome to the higher side. My gosh thank you for that introduction. Thanks for having me. Of course it is a true pleasure to have you here. Thanks for doing it. Whitewash has been on my shelf for a couple of years now. And when i saw the monsanto papers coming out i thought it would be a great opportunity because you really are dedicated to this space in super knowledgeable about our corporate pesticide dependent food system and few people really dive into one thing. Like this for as long as you have. What kicked this all off and kept you engaged with it as long as you have been. Well yes thank you. That's a question. A lot of people ask me. I guess it was not by design. I was working at atlanta covering big bank holding companies and reuters the international news outlet where i spent most of my career asked me to move to kansas and start covering food and farming and these really interesting novel. Crops that monsanto had just rolled out genetically engineered crops or gmo's and this was in the late nineteen nineties. And i thought it was a really terrible idea. I didn't really want to trade my blue business suit and high heels and nice lunches with powerful business people for boots and jeans and hanging out in farm fields but made the move anyway and you know really dug in so to speak and yeah this has become my work and also my passion. I guess for more than twenty years now And i've heard you talk about that initial assignment before and it's interesting to hear how big companies like monsanto handle journalist. It seems like they love to roll out the pr machine. I give you a nice tour of the facility. All very surface level but if a journalist actually does stray from their talking points then they get very vicious. Very fast right. Yeah i mean so this is what happens when you are a journalist and particularly if you work for a very big news outlet in influential news outlet the company that you're covering and writing about or organizations or institutions or the white house. I mean want to woo. They want to teach you so to speak the way to cover them and they really want to direct the narrative. And you know that's to be expected right and so yes. Monsanto and other companies that were working in the agricultural space very big seed and chemical companies invited me in and i've spent a lot of time at dow dupont on santos headquarters in saint louis with their top executives and they really did spend a lot of time trying to teach me the ropes and i really appreciated that. Because i didn't have a very had really no background whatsoever. Uncovering crops and chemicals in agriculture in the environment so there was quite a learning curve. And it's important to understand the corporate perspective. Obviously but as a journalist you need to understand the bigger picture and so i also made it my priority to spend a lot of time with farmers and with scientists and with you know people involved in grain handling and distribution and people involved in environmental work to understand how the crops and chemicals were impacting water quality and air and soil health and biodiversity. So you really are trying to understand this from all facets perspectives. And you're right. As i learned more and came to understand that everything wasn't just completely you know rosie fabulous wonderful. As the corporations tried to tell us they became quite unhappy with my reporting and the farther i strayed from. I guess just parroting their propaganda the more they tried to discredit me. Harass me harass. My editors It you know in the late. Gosh well twenty. Twelve thirteen twenty. Fourteen really intensified. In of course. This was around the time when there was a big push to get. Gmo labeling in the united states and there was a big push to look harder at this chemical licey which is part of monsanto's roundup herbicides and actually has become or is the most widely used herbicides chemical in the world and there was so much science that had come to bear showing that there was real harm associated with this widespread use of this chemical and i had been writing a lot about that in. Yeah i came under quite a bit of attack. And i'm sure of your listeners. Google my name. They might find some pretty astonishingly awful things written about me. We've learned through litigation and discovery that monsanto had put together several strategies and plans to try to discredit me including google search engine optimization manipulation so that people who would search for my name would get directed to sites that santo controlled so very interesting journey. It's fin certainly absolutely. That is something that i think can't be overstated that it's all about narrative control and they don't actually address a lot of the science that's being presented directly. It's more about well. How can we engage in character assassination. And i have heard you mention a previous interview. I think a detractors for higher website as an example of one of those fake websites that kind of present you as like. I make my money shitting on thin. So hire me and i'll do what you need done. That's kind of how they make the perception look like you're just out to get these poor.
Report Finds Los Angeles Police Mishandled George Floyd Protests
"Thea L. A Police department mishandled the protests and unrest that followed the killing of George Floyd last spring. That's the finding of a detailed and very critical report commissioned by the L. A City Council among the LAPD shortcomings, a lack of training, poor communication and minimal coordination that led to a fragmented response to the protests with more Here's KCRW's Matt Gillam. This review was spearheaded by a group of former Police Department commanders led by attorney Gerald Chaleff, who's looked at the LAPD's mishandling of past unrest. They found problems in the response at all levels from on the ground officers to top brass. According to the report. Many police only received a couple hours of training on using less lethal munitions, which seriously injured several demonstrators planning for mass arrests was minimal and led to people being detained for hours on end and police higher ups issued contradictory orders. Report also said so called Shadow teams of undercover officers were sent into the crowds together information but had insufficient means of relating their Intel back to authorities. Any of these problems have been called out in the past. Nearly two dozen recommendations for improvements are in the report, including regular audits to ensure the department is complying with settlements. LAPD is working on its own analysis of the response at a third review from the L. A Police commission is also in

Interview with bio-mechanics expert Lisa McFadden, PhD
"Welcome back to another edition of moving to live our ethos movement is a lifestyle notches activity. We tried to interview professionals across the movement spectrum because we understand at the end of the day, anybody who is involved in movement either wants their clients patients or athletes to either move more or move better whether it's to move with less pain or to move more efficiently. Some of our best guests come from recommendations from other guests and a big. Thank you to Andy Gillam who recommended today's guest Lisa McFadden they arresting thing with podcasting is i. now have lineage of three people in a row starting with Brian Gary To. To Doctrine McFadden today hopefully two or three more as far as I can trace it's not who you know is who you know who knows somebody. So Dr McFadden thank you for taking time to talk to moving to live this afternoon. Absolutely thank you for having me. My favorite question I always ask on moving deliver the first one I. Always ask is to get an elevator. You get to talking because the elevators really slow because somebody's pressing all the buttons and they say, so what do you do what your thirty second? Not In a negative way elevator spiel my name is Lisa McFadden and I. I'll man and this one's a Turkey one I wear lots of different hats But yeah so. The way I look at what I do is I really put science into practice whether it's with athletes or with patients and Meyer expertise is in bio mechanics. So I like to used by mechanics to help people move better and then I also liked to inspire whether that's inspiring communities around science or whether that's inspiring. Students through mentorship in education. Right. Now, if I'm correct your in South Dakota. Yes that's correct. I work at Stanford Health See Falls South Dakota. And I know we were chatting a little bit before we started recording and both of us grew up in upstate new. York and I have to be honest I never thought I would end up in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania, I never thought I would go to Grad School in Alabama and I would imagine that there's an interesting story going all the way from New York state with multiple stops all the way to South Dakota and I would imagine if you're anybody else like anybody else in the movement field is probably a few more stops along the way before you retire. Well, it's funny. I almost ended up in Pittsburgh. Along my way and I've spent some time in Alabama on a couple of different business trip. So it sounds like we've got a similar. Set of journeys But yes I I grew up in upstate New York in a little town called the sweet go not quite as little as where I heard you up. But? Yes. So I grew up on Lake Ontario My Dad was a doctor in I. Always always wanted to be a doctor specifically pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, and my dad always told me no, you do not He said you really WanNa be an engineer and I said, no, No, no dad engineers are big nerds. And he said you're really good at math and you you have passion for this and I. Really suggest you become an engineer. So I very boldly went to the University of Rochester Pre and applied math saying you're wrong dad. But you know had a had a moment of clarity probably after my first year I did realize and did some self reflection and thought you know the type of. Mother that I wanted to be in the type of you don't grown up that I wanted to be really do not not focus around having call and prioritizing patients, which is absolutely something that you have to do but really being able to have a little bit of flexibility in In my lifestyle and so I finally listen to my father after a long time of not and. decided that I would actually transfer into biomedical engineering where I ended up focusing on bio mechanics as my concentration with minors in mechanical engineering and applied math. throughout my Undergrad I really really enjoyed all of that and so as I started thinking about what was next I started getting really interested in robotics and in two that feel that was emerging back. Then decided that I really wanted to go and get a PhD in that. So I had been at ski resorts I grew up ski racing and I was in Montana with our family on vacation and watched a bunch of ski. Racers who had disabilities whether they were in a sit ski or whether they were missing leg skiing and I was just very inspired I looked at them versus like while they're amazing. They're they're better skiers than I am and then you could see that as soon as they were off the hill where they were excelling the rollout of daily life challenges. So I started getting really interested in prostates wanting to kind of help people that you needed additional help outside of. Being Super, rockstar athletes to help them in their daily lives and so robotics was sort of that pathway for me. My senior design project ended up being a surgical robot and then I ended up getting into Carnegie Mellon at the Robotics Institute which is where I almost went to Grad School and then the University of Utah in my husband and I. Boyfriend at the time looked at each other and said, we should go skiing. So, Kinda took that wildcard robotics institute was number one ended the US at the time but decided to go out to Utah where they had just one anger from the NSF in robotics, and so I was in the bio engineering department and kind of hybrid into mechanical engineering. So I really took courses and had faculty the Committee from both worlds and I was able to do there was. My my PhD was focused on spinal cord injuries and what we were working on with functional electrical stimulation, supporting an array of electrodes and putting them into the peripheral muscles, and then stimulating those and my job was to figure out what the mechanics looked like. So creating models of the limb and then creating control algorithms to figure out how we can control this limbs yet somebody to go from sitting to standing. And to do it in a way that they didn't get tired while they were standing because the way our muscles work. If you contract one all the way, you might get yourself to go into a specific movement but then that muscles eventually wanting to fatigue and you can't can't sustain it. So what does that look like as well?

E. and hand sanitizer and a ton of volunteers so he's just been doing these kind of rogue pop up sign making stations and he's done three in each time they've slowly gotten a little bigger more people have rallied behind it and started dropping off food and supplies so it's quickly grown into quite the operation yeah sounds like a lot of helping going on or why did why did he focus linsey specifically on sign making as a way to participate I mean is this is calling this is where I think his experience as an artist came in really key he when the process is started it he was looking at images that were circulating in the media coverage and he saw that the images being chosen really focus on the signs rate because we can't always know what's in the heads of the protesters but the signs are a way to like quickly get to the point of what they're thinking and why they're fighting and so he really recognize the signs as like a key visual tool in conveying the message so I feel like that's an artist brain a little bit to kind of realize the power that the signs having communication where is he sourcing the materials from as an artist you know he often orders cardboard so the cardboard is used to pack up paying teens and as kind of like a protection material around our work so he had a contact ready for big sheets of cardboard so he was able to use that Avenue to quickly purchase his first protest he spent about three hundred dollars of his own money and order the cardboard he got the would ordered and he's his own table sign in studio to cut down all the cardboard and wood to prepare for the the protests I mean you mentioned obviously the this the source materials it is using but also the the PP and the the sanitizer in the food you know the snacks and things like that that's not an expensive he's probably a struggling artist so I mean where is this money coming from right he said the other people that we're going to the protests and Josh to drop off food and supplies kind of started dropping off at his booth because it was like a central space with tables so it was really interesting how other people quickly jumped on board but since that first one it scaled up so for the second protest was two weekends ago in Hollywood and here is nine hundred dollars to Instagram from just rallying community support and friends after this last weekend he was able to raise twelve hundred dollars on a go fund me campaign so each time it keeps growing and I think as he does it more friends and family and community members recognize the importance of what he's doing and people wanna help out like people are there to participate in volunteer and give snacks to protesters so I think people kind of flock to what he's doing if if this was a calling for him I mean did it start out that way how did you get involved in the first place yeah I mean I think like a lot of us Greg started taking action from home right so we're on Instagram we're all looking at what to do next and a lot of artists have been auctioning off artwork on Instagram I've seen that quite a bit and raising money for black lives matter or other kind of related organizations so Greg started there he he raised about three thousand dollars by auction often drawing on Instagram for black lives matters but he told me that he was seen a lot of digital activism and not enough on the streets so he really I think felt called to be physical and this move and get out there and and get engaged in that way is is this the type of work that he's always done as an artist as he I mean design and signs and things like that or is this a departure for him he told me that he is in no way an activist Intel now and he said that he always votes but he doesn't really attend big protests or rallies and he says that he is an artist that was fed up with seeing the world not doing enough and he don't want to remain silent so I feel like the story is about an artist kind of utilizing the tools around him or her to kind of creatively problem solve in obviously being out there can be a dangerous thing especially in the in the midst of a pandemic he got tested or is getting tested right for for corona virus if he comes back negative for that what what's he planning to do next more protests more sign making exactly he told me he's also offering sign making kids now I think he has some extra supplies so if anyone is interested in kind of modeling what Greg is doing on your own you can get in touch with him and make your own sign making station or have a little party to do that so the best way to really reach out and get involved with what Greg is doing is via his Instagram account and he welcomes people to get in touch or DM him to find out more we'll we'll link that Instagram account on our website when we get it up and running today what an interesting story Lindsey Preston's apesar art insider and editor in chief of Carla Lindsey as always thank you thanks Steve take care.
Cat, Mouse, Lizard, and Owl
"The story. Alpha cat a mouse lizard. An Owl this is the story of four creatures. None of whom loved each other. Who lived in the same Banyan tree in a forest in India? Banyan trees are very beautiful and very useful and get their name from the fact that Barnabas as merchants are called an India often gathered together in their sheet to sell their goods. Banyan trees grew to a very great height spreading their branches out so widely that many people can stand beneath them from those branches routes spring forth. Which when they reach the ground bureau sit and look like columns holding up a roof. If you have never seen a banyan tree you can easily find a picture of one in some dictionary and when you have done so you will understand that a great many creatures can live in one without seeing much of each other in an especially fine. Banyan tree outside the walls of town call visa a cat and I'll lizard and a mouse had all taken up there aboard. The cat lived in a big hole in the trunk. Some little distance from the ground where she could sleep very cozine gold up out of sight with her head resting on her four paws feeling effectively safe from home for no other creature. She thought could possibly discover her hiding place. The zoo stood in a mass of foliage at the top of the tree near the nest in which his wife had brought up their children before. Those children flew away to seek mates for themselves to felt pretty secure as long as he remained up there but he had seen the cat prowling about below him more than once and was very sure that if she should happen to catch sight of him when he was off his guard seeking his spree and obliged to give him all his attention to what he was doing she might spring out upon him and kill him gets do not generally attack such big birds owls but they will sometimes. Gillam mother sitting in her nest as well as the little ones if the father is too far off to protect them the lizard loves to lie and Boskin. The sunshine catching the flies which he lived lying so still that they did not notice him darting out his long tongue suddenly to suck them into his mouth yet. He hit from the album and the cat because he knew full. Well that tough though he was they would gobble them up if they happened to be hungry. He made his home amongst the boots on the south side of the tree where it was hottest but the mouse had his whole on the other side amongst damp. Moss and deadly mouse wasn't constant fear of the cat and the L. He knew that both of them could see in the dark and he would have no chance of escape if they won. Scott sight of him the lizard and the mouse could only get food in daylight but the Lizard did not have to go far off for the flies on which he lived whilst the mouse had a very dangerous journey to take to his favourite feeding place. This was a barley field a short distance from the. Banyan tree where he loved to nibble the full years running the stocks to get at them. The mouse was the only one of the four creatures in the Banyan Tree who did not feed on others for like the rest of the family. He was a vegetarian that is to see. He ate nothing but vegetables and fruits. Now the cat new food. Well how fond. The mouse was of the barley fiend. And she used to keep watch amongst the tall stems creeping. Tell me about with her. Tail in the air and green ice glistening expecting any moment to see the poor little mouse darting hastily along. The cat never dreamed that any danger could come to her and she tracked down the barley making quite a clear path through it. She was quite wrong in thinking herself. So safe for that part. Got Her into the Harry series trouble now. It so happened that hunter whose great delight was to kill wild creatures and who was very clever in finding them noticing every little thing which could shoot him where they had passed by came one day into the Barney fiend he spied the Baath directly cried Haha. Some wild animal has been your not a very big one. Let's have a look for the footprints So he stood down to the ground. Daddy soon saw the marks off the cat's feet. I do believe he said to himself spoiling the barley. She doesn't want to eat herself I'll soon pay her out the Hon. Till we did unto leave name lest the creature should see what he was going to do and then in the twilight he said snares all over the barley field. A snare you know is a string with a slipknot at the end of it. And if an animal his head or one of his spores into the slipknot goes on without noticing it string is pulled tight and the poor creature cannot get free exactly what the hunter expected happened. The cat came as usual to watch for the mouse and caught sight of him running across the end of the bought. The cat dashed after him. Just A. She thought she really had got him. This time she found herself caught by the neck for she had put her head into one of the snares. She was nearly strangled and good. Scarcely even new mouse was so close that he heard the feeble noon hand in a terrible fright thinking that the cat was off to him he beat through the stems of the barley. To make sure which way to run to get away from her. What was his delight when he saw his enemy in such trouble quite unable to do him any harm. Now it so happened that the owner and the Lizard also in the Barney field not ready fodder away from the cat and be to solve the distress. Their heated enemy was in the also caught sight of the little mouse. Beeping the barley and thought to himself. Oh have you my little Fred. Now cat kindle do me any home why the Lizard darted away to the sunshine. Feeling glad that the cat and the owl were neither of them now likely to trouble their heads about him. The flu quietly to a tree hard by to watch. What would happen feeling so sure of having the mouse for his dinner that he was in no hurry to catch him the mouse small and helpless though he was was a wise little creature he sold the old fly up into the tree and knew quite well that if he did not give he would serve as Dino that great strong bird. He also knew that if he went within reach of the clause of the cat he would suffer for it. How I do wish he thought to himself. I could make Fritz with the cat now. She's in distress and get her to promise not to hold me if ever she gets free his lungs. I knew the cat the oh not dare to come off to

another guy in a hotel room and the other guy was well pretty much unconscious and had mess all over his face and apparently the guy was wearing something called chaps yeah if you don't know what shops are well you just go find out for yourself but don't do it on a work computer and Gillam is sort of you know walking around in some sort of a hazy state now turns out the guy who was with Gillam in this hotel killed you know married I think he's even got some kids it's Gillam E. is caught in this hotel room with this other guy who is some sort of a male escort now I had so a third guy comes into the room to continue the party she got Gillam you got this other guy who considers himself a some sort of like a male prostitute kind of a thing wearing chaps he's on mass Gillam apparently is drunk or high on something so he's rather inebriated as well so that the third guy walks in he sees the male prostitute he's unconscious barely breathing any calls nine one one so the officers that arrived due to the fine but Andrew Gillam you know the guy who was running for Florida governor so I'm now Gillam does what most people would do in this kind of situation he is going to enter rehab

rehabilitation facility saying he had fallen into a depression and alcohol abuse after losing his bid for the state's highest post you know I usually have a couple of fi chocolate chip cookies when I get depressed maybe chocolate chip sundae that kind of a thing I don't go into a hotel room with a male prostitute and another dude with a bunch of mass Bill Clinton you member Bill Clinton with that whole story in the last couple of weeks yeah you know what I was dealing with the pressures of my job so I started doing what I was doing with Monica Lewinsky now Gillam is saying that he was depressed after losing his bid for the governorship and so he decided to enter into a hotel room with mass a male prostitute and another guy it all makes sense now by the way yes he is a Democrat the Democrats statement came days after Gillam was named in a South Florida police report on Friday said that he was inebriated and initially unresponsive in a hotel room along with a male companion where authorities found baggies of suspected crystal methamphetamine so there is your Andrew Gillam update he's not charged with any crime he was allowed to leave the hotel how do you explain because I just

wish I had a podcast I Gillam said in his statement on Sunday night to last night that he resolved to seek help after conversations with his family and deep reflection calling the decision a wake up call for me I thought that was a wake up call for your family to his exact quote since my race for governor ended I fell into a depression that has led to alcohol abuse he said pledging to work quote to heal fully and show up in the world as a more complete person because you know his world was not complete with a male prostitute in chaps in a hotel room with methamphetamine he said that he would be stepping down from all public facing roles at this time that's probably a good idea Delem I mean I would if you really think that's awfully big of them to step down from all of the public facing roles does he really think that people well you know this is a Democrat this hit me you know what maybe he was you know identifying as a married man but he was actually you know something else maybe that's what all this is about he says I want to apologize to my family my friends and the people of Florida who have supported you know I thought we're all supposed to you know like social distance

apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this is caused for our movement while the police report said Mr Gillam was unable to communicate due to his inebriated state let's see here he found the guy apparently on some sort of a some sort of a like male prostitute website I get there I'm barely there is such a thing police say one of the men came into the hotel room and found

"gillam" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"As we continue with them yell McLaughlin, and Jonathan Gillam Danielle, I'm flying something for folks sitting at home when the attorney the nut sitting they're grabbing their car steering wheel harder and harder, every time he took my question. I don't I don't come on your show to be popular and appreciative of everyone who's listening and most like folks with me. But just give me a minute to explain what I made here. So they'll buy when you were talking about the hurric- Lynton oil or the president. And you have someone on FBI, and the Clinton case teaching kids to south because of that Tomek meeting or you've got, though, by they're looking for what I have to basically make the decision to department of Justice guidelines, whether they think they can get a conviction. It's not, you know, whether you decide to charge or not, which is what you or I would get. But they have to decide what they have not even convict two different standard than whether you would would charge and so it's happening, and my first station is that willing to believe that they would win obstruction. You know there wasn't enough to, to predict instruction, but you not willing to believe Komi that it wasn't enough to convict Hillary Clinton. And it just seems to me, I can say both sides, hitting Louis. It's trouble medic and political believe what we believe that standard is so high. That, that's why we're not going to say you know, we're not going to say the department Justice going out to either them and seven because the president is immune at this point because of the department Justice guidelines, because he has more. The DOJ his decided. What do you think Johnny? I don't believe anybody from Washington DC, quite frankly. And but what I do believe in is evidence. And I believe in the totality of the circumstances. Look at what these two groups of people one have been investigated. The other that is not what we see is an unbalanced of fairness and Justice where one person who is assumed to have done something. It's fully investigated. And the other people where there is actual evidence of espionage. Has it been looked at at all? And that's where I was up three. Three. Going on right now. You've got Horowitz. Now you have to Connecticut Attorney general own into this. So now to get it. Well, it's happening, right? I mean, the, the OJ is run by the current administration of to getting, and we will find out. We will find out and it's good to should be blind. Justice should be blind to. Disagree? I don't say I mean, if they really wanted Hillary Clinton, they would give her of announce to keep the election, you know. Kony would later, you would rotate the priest conference they would be.

Understanding 'Gender Impact' in Canadian Construction Work
"Might not say what is a gender lens have to do with building this new highway or this new pipeline or something. Well, there are gender impacts. When you bring construction workers into a rural area, there are social impacts that was last year and Buenos Aires, and you may remember some of the immediate reaction. We don't think that you need to have some kind of gender-based analysis when two thousand people come to create jobs to work to support hotels and restaurants as small businesses and families. It's unbelievable to watch. This prime minister refused to acknowledge that his arrogant and self righteous comments are an insult to tens of thousands of Canadians who work in construction in our communities across the country. Here's what that all comes down to whether or not you support pipelines and dams whether you think Justin Trudeau is a modern progressive example for the rest of us or a fake feminist who doesn't understand the real world. These construction projects which employ thousands of out of area workers for months at a time to have an impact on the communities that host, and yes, some of that is a positive contribution to the economy and local infrastructure, and yes, some of that is negative and when it gets bad it can get really bad. There are a couple of ways that we can measure these impacts one is with numbers, and that's being done. The other is the old fashioned way. You send a reporter he talks to everyone. And he tells us what he found today, we have both of those things. So we're going to try to answer the question. What are the real costs of Canada's worker camps? Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Kyle Edwards is a reporter from mcclain's who spent time at a massive worker camp enforce Saint John and British Columbia. Tell me why you went to fort Saint John. Well, it started in. I think it was August twenty eighteen there was this story out in Manitoba. After kind of this arm's length and agency provincial agency in Manitoba had released. A report they're called the clean environment commission, and they had released a report that had gained a lot of media. Attention, basically detailed allegations of sexual abuse. Dating back to the nineteen sixties at a work camp up in northern town called Gillam, which is just east of a city called Thompson Manitoba, right? And the it was involving several first nations communities one in particular was the FOX like creation, and there were members they kind of detailed these horrible issue. These horrible stories of sexual abuse at the hands of. Manitoba hydro workers one person in particular had said that the RCMP organized gangs back in the nineteen sixties. And so it was this very explosive report. I guess I guess you call it. And it it gained a lot of media attention in in Manitoba last year. And so we were talking about it at McLeans. And we want us to do a story we actually discussed the idea of doing a story on industrial camps last year around the time the report came out, and so that was kind of the time that was kind of when I started thinking about it. And I put in some f allies and started asking people if this was an issue that they're really concerned about and that took me to fourteen John which is where it's a city that is known for having a very large transient population. Which is which basically means there are workers that go there for work. What do we know about what happens these camps, or I guess what's kind of the? The popular stereotype around them. Because the the reports detailing what allegedly happened in Manitoba is not kind of the only one of its kind. Yes. So in thousand seventeen a report from this organization called or this consulting group called the Firelight group. They released a report that basically raised a bunch of warnings about when there's a particular camp near in an area by other communities. There's a increase in issues like sex trafficking in the sex trade. There's an increase RCMP data and the report showed that there was a thirty eight percent increase in reported sexual assaults in Saint James fourteenth, James BC in two thousand and eleven and there were other issues like an increase in S T is in a particular area as well as other concerns regarding rampant drug. Use in alcohol use in in in a lot of these camps. And this is has been really as I kind of looked into it a little bit more. This was something that a lot of people have a lot of scholars and academics. Researchers had they've kind of looked into this issue for many many years. Yeah. And and it just seemed like it was nothing new and a lot of people kind of knew that there were a lot of social impacts to industrial camps. So that's really kind of drove the story. So you went to Ford Saint John to essentially see what the situation was like on the ground, and and what kind of social construct springs up around these camps. Exactly enforcing John. There's a huge strain on. So there they call them. They call it the shadow population. A lot of people that's a term a lot of people use the province of British Columbia is not really sure how many people are going to northeastern BC for work who live. Who live elsewhere who reside permanently? Elsewhere, right, and one of the challenges with that is s- things like health services and social services, the those those sort of things are funded by the province based on the resident population, and without taking into consideration, the thousands and thousands of people that most nearly double the actual population. When I got there. A lot of women spoke about a lot of indigenous woman, I spoke to you spoke spoke a lot about racism and sexual harassment and use and it was kind of alarming. Really? So can you tell me about some of the people you met in fort Saint John and some of the stories you heard so I

There's a brain boosting aspect of certain specific ginseng, so talk about the the health boosting benefits of ginseng and your expedition to northeast China to chase it in the wild, actually, my expedition to northeast China was my very first mission to China at all this was gosh. Nineteen ninety four and I I was asked. By a group of people to go there with them to the northeastern part. John, which means Black River dragon province berry cool name. And that's one of the big centers of Jim saying production and extraction. And I had read a lot of science on it. I had been using ginseng since I was a teenager.

If he will into the breads and depth, the health benefits of ginseng, and I've maintained a strong interest, and I've gone back to China repeatedly overtime, exactly. And specifically to go further with this. Remarkable route. So Chris in conjunction with purity products. You created the two our triple action ginseng formulation. I mean, really innovative stuff here. This combination has never been done before. And it does things other Jin sings just can't do because it's delivers three types of ginseng in just one capsule. Right. Well, that's true. You know, I said this to you before when we've had other topics that we've been talking about. But at. Purity when we get together, we kind of try to bash anybody out in the market, and we also try to best ourselves. So we may start out with an idea. And then we just keep adding an improving to it in real until it's really something special. If you look at the best selling ginseng supplement on the market today. It contains a hundred milligrams of ginseng extract, our triple ginseng product contains seven hundred milligrams of pure potent, youth, boosting ginseng power, and basically what that means is that you're able to get many times more the concentration of active principles a much stronger effect from the ginseng, and because we're always trying to top ourselves.

And I'm also very aware that if listeners this product they're going to be delightfully surprised at what they experience. So again with Chris kill him the medicine hunter with us today. Chris can you remind our listeners, why do you call your triple ginseng, a two hour ginseng one in here is clinically tested deliver brain benefits in as little as just two hours. Wow. On on that. Well, sure pet there are different type of Jin saying that we have three different types in this. Triple saying one of the extracts, we have is an extract of American ginseng, which is very very popular in Asia, by the way, an extract called Sarah boost and Sarah boosters is clinically tested in human populations. But there was one study that surprised everybody. I mean, the people who thought that Sarah boost would show good effects, the people who didn't know one way or another in the study of the participants were given two hundred milligrams of this Sarah boost extract prior to give it being given that they were given a cognitive function test so testing different aspects of brain and mental function and two hours later, they were given a cognitive function test and every. Everybody involved in the study was surprised to see significant improvements in working memory in working memory capacity in accuracy, mental accuracy in two hours that's without caffeine. That's within without any other stimulants, just pure powerful, potent ginseng extract. Now, Chris Jensen is usually popular in Asia. I mean, tens of millions of people use it.

So let me ask you about this brand new research from thousand eighteen on a very specific component in ginseng called R G, one RG one is found only in elite ginseng formulas in the helps people get fitter and stronger so share with us a few headlines on RG one. Yeah. This is kinda crazy especially of interest to anybody who's physically active and Tripoli. So for anybody who's at all we've seen a number of studies of Jin sings compound RG one with people participating in athletic activity, one thing that researchers found with the total surprise and definitely relate to the long. Standing idea that ginseng is a youth enhancer is that when you take ginseng, and you're doing some form of physical exercise, the ginseng aside RG one specifically actually helps to rejuvenate your muscles. This is quite remarkable. We also saw an another study showing that ginseng aside, RG one actually causes people to become more fit. Their muscles suffer less damage.

Of course, this red ginseng is used to promote stamina vitality and sexual function. You use a super potent seventeen percent, red ginseng extract in this triple ginseng, that's three times more than most. So why is red ginseng perhaps the most sought after of all the gin sings?

Giants: Return of Landon Collins and Odell Beckham unclear
"To other giants had bits Gilman show shot down. Not that. We didn't suspect us that. It was all kind of just February BS, but Gillam said we didn't give Odell Beckham junior a huge contract extension to turn around and trade them. So just let's why don't we put that on the no touch on this podcast any Anki? Odell trade speculation. That's good. And also Landon Collins I'll throw to when you guys heard somebody thought it was a little saucy. So Greg was you Alantic Collins again, there's been a lot of speculation about what they're gonna do with the former first round pick. There was speaking of shenanigans talk about them empty on his locker last week. What is his future with the giants? It's murky. Well, there were there were some spares that maybe they didn't value as much as as let's say, Chris, and I did when we ranked the free agents we talked about that on the last show. And then he had this common Gettleman today that when? They were talking about the tag. He said, let's talk about eliminating distractions. You tag a guy and he's mad, and that's all you guys are gonna write about for six month. That's what it's going to be. So I have to say to myself is that worth it? And that that was telling to me that he was when they asked about bringing Collins back. He was very ambivalent about it. And it made me think maybe he's just going to be a free agent made me think of Josh Norman, he's already been through this right to me. That's not that Landon Collins is in good. It's that I don't wanna go through the same thing. I went with went through Georgia combination to me. 'cause if you think he's the best safety in the league, you just would do. I would think you're right. Norman catis flat-footed Gettleman surprised everyone by tagging them that year and letting them go, and I guess maybe it's gonna be a little concern. If you're voiding the franchise tag, which gives you another year to negotiate and work on keeping this player around because of the annoyance factor of writers writing about it between now and September,

"gillam" Discussed on News Radio 1190 KEX
"Live with Chris Gillam, the medicine hunter you've seen him on several doctor shows, I'm sure on television. Chris I want to talk about this chart that I'm looking up and the line is going straight up on this chart. The headline of the clinical study reads quote effectiveness of green select on improvement of antioxidant defenses in plasma. So they've administered this high quality green tea, it's actually a sane does that you have in your green tea CR formula. It's three hundred twenty milligrams. I gotta know what did they find? Well, basically, the what happens is that when we consume certain antioxidants. It's not that those act antioxidants like float around in our bodies and protect ourselves. It's that they actually modified genes that cause our bodies to produce more of our own internal or what you would call an dodging this antioxidants, the most critically valuable one of which. Which is glued to thion. And what we see with green tea in general and with the green select extract of green tea, specifically is a very significant improvement in our inner production of antioxidants as a result of consuming. This. What this does is this helps to, you know, make our bodies more basically to defend our bodies better to defend ourselves better to get rid of free radicals, which are partially broken cells. So that this helps to modify, and you know, hopefully, slow down the cellular aging process. Chris I have more study I want you to comment on. They actually did two studies on weight loss with this specific green tea fight ozone. I know this is your favorite weight loss study because it was a twenty four week randomized single blinded study in one hundred subjects there were forty nine men and fifty one women they were considered healthy and overweight. Adults both kind of mixed. What did they find in the study, Chris? Well, basically, they tracked this group. You know, this wasn't some quickey like ten days study. This is twenty four weeks hundred subjects that's really a good number. And it was forty nine men as you said, you know, fifty one women ages forty five to fifty five so right in that kind of mid range. You know, all of them, overweight, all of them, given a somewhat calory reduced diet and a daily regimen a modest regimen of physical activity. You know, I always feel sorry for an I know I've said this to you before. But I always feel sorry for the placebo group in these studies. You know, they get given. That's totally bogus that doesn't give any benefits. And then of course, the other group get something typically great in. This instance, the placebo group got nothing they just had the calorie restricted diet and the exercise. And the other group took one hundred fifty milligrams of the green tea fight assume that we have in our product twice a day. And they're the group that saw basically an average weight loss of twenty six pounds versus the placebo group, which had an average weight loss of thirteen pounds. So you know, when people are struggling to get to a healthy way to await that they feel good about that they feel more energetic and every little bit helps, and if it turns out that with green tea extract and with this green tea fight Assam, specifically we see enhanced weight reduction. I don't know why anybody who's sort of you know, if you will kind of fighting the battle of the bulge wouldn't want to use this as a sort of an assist wanna go back to the mailbox real quick. Let's dig into a few of the other ingredients in this formula. It's called green tea. Cr and the CR stands for curcumin and resveratrol. I wanted to talk about the special curcumin which comes from to American here, and why it's your favorite of all the different options out there, and what is curcumin really good for Chris. Well, you know to Mark has emerged as one of the very most popular botanical of all time, Steve. And that's because it imparts so many benefits in particular.

According to unofficial results filed by the county's Republican governor, Rick Scott leads incumbent democratic Senator Bill Nelson by more than twelve thousand five hundred votes. The two have gone right at each other Bill Nelson is clearly a sore loser. He can't stand the fact that he's not going to be elected for what the first time. In decades. One fact is that Rick Scott is an interested in making sure every law for voters counted and the second is that he's using his power as governor to try to undermine the voting process. Spread and the governor's race is larger with former Republican Representative. Rhonda Santa's ahead of democratic Tallahassee. Mayor Andrew gillum by nearly thirty four thousand votes over the weekend. Gillam revoked his previous concession. I. Words of concession within uncompromised in unapologetic call and we count every single vote. The Santa's is attempting to stay above the fray by keeping a low profile during the recount as the counting continues. The spotlight has focused on two counties in particular, Broward and Palm Beach Republicans have zeroed in on the supervisors of elections in both counties.

While he awaits trial Caesar Sayaka, Florida resident who frequently praised President Trump while threatening his opponents on social media is accused of sending bombs to the Obamas. The Clinton's former vice president Joe Biden next CIA director John Brennan, congress members, Maxine Waters, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, liberal activists, Tom Steiner, and George Soros, actor Robert deniro and CNN's main office building in Manhattan at the supreme court. Newly seeded Justice Brett Kavanagh appeared receptive Tuesday to the arguments of a condemn Missouri prisoner who says he's likely to experience extreme. Pain if he subjected to a lethal injection Russell buck Lou was scheduled to be executed last March before the high court agreed to hear his appeal. His attorneys argued at the supreme court, Tuesday, Buckley's rare medical condition could prevent a lethal injection drug from circulating properly through his veins likely leading to a death so agonizing it would violate the constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment. The supreme court split four two four earlier this year on whether to allow the execution to proceed meaning Justice Cavanaugh will likely cast the deciding vote in the case, and in Wisconsin, where Republican governor Scott Walker was defeated on Tuesday in his bid for a third term an office. The high tech manufacturer Foxconn says seeking to bring in workers from China to help run the factory under construction near the city of Racine. Governor Walker back to plan with the support of house speaker Paul Ryan and President Trump to. Died three billion dollars in tax credits to Foxconn claiming the taxpayer money would provide thousands of new jobs while renovating Wisconsin's economy, but Foxconn has scaled back its plans now saying it'll hire just three thousand workers in the short term, most of them and engineering positions rather than the thirteen thousand Matthew facturing jobs governor Walker had promised and the size of the tax payer subsidy has steadily increased to four point one billion dollars during two terms office. Governor Scott Walker which known for aggressively busting unions, and for his close ties to right wing dark money groups, and those are some of the headlines, this is democracy. Now democracy now dot org. The warrant piece report, I'm Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez, welcome to all of our viewers and listeners across the country and around the world. Democrats have seized control of the house of representatives flipping more than two dozen seats. This gives Democrats subpoena power for the first time since President Trump was elected two years ago, while the Democrats will control the House Republicans picked up two more seats in the Senate on the state level. Democrats picked up seven governorships huge turnout numbers were reported across the country. President Trump responded to the election results by tweeting, quote, if the Democrats think they're going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the house level. Then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information and much else at the Senate level to complete that game. The terms were a groundbreaking election for women for the first time in US history. At least one hundred women will serve in the US house of representatives, including the first two native American women and the first two Muslim women later in the program. We'll hear from. Democratic socialist Alexandra Cossio Cortes who became the youngest woman ever elected to congress. But we begin today's show with two guests here in New York, Katrina, vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the nation. America's oldest weekly magazine. She's also a columnist for the Washington Post dot com, and we're joined by Rashad Robinson, executive director of color of change. We welcome you both to democracy. Now, let's begin with Katrina vanden who've oh your thoughts on what has taken place the house now in the hands of Democrats Republicans have expanded control of the Senate. I think taking back the house is critical is a check on President Trump. But also, I think it's important people know that a majority of the committees and subcommittees will be controlled by progressives. The progressive caucus will have about ninety members some of the women you mentioned will join and it will have thirteen committees. And I think thirty subcommittees that's important. And I think the ability to not only hold the president in the. Administration accountable on corruption on self interest on self-dealing, but the ability to lay out bold initiatives, bold, legislation may not pass with a Senate as we've seen it. But it's critical. I think that the progressive Democrats lay out in this war of ideas, that progressives have been winning to a certain extent fifteen minimum wage jobs program infrastructure, free higher. Ed. The governor's race is one spoke of critical critical both as a blue wall against the redistricting scams that we've seen from the Republicans critical also to rest back the rust belt from Trump who really did. Well, and key parts, Wisconsin. How sweet it is Scott Walker going down. I mean, my colleague John Nichols has written so much copy about this man who busted public workers assault on education has demeaned and degraded the Wisconsin idea, so I think that's critical amendment for renewed Robinson. And I were. Talking about it. One thing we've seen in this election. Amien won the barriers to democratic participation the will funded targeting voting suppression. So men men for restoring rights to ex-felons to vote one point four million Floridians will be able to vote I think is a vital step on the road to a true democracy. Statehouses? We haven't seen the numbers yet. But those will be hopeful as well flipping. I think Minnesota and a few others. So I think it was you know, it was a bittersweet night because we've seen the incendiary toxic. Nationalism xenophobia, any immigrant actions talk of this president and his enabler in the Republican party. You know, they they secured some wins. However, those who say was kinda split, let's all recall that the Senate map is the most horrific for Democrats. I mean, it's just, you know, the one third up we're really states in which the Republicans and Trump of played well, you mentioned the rust belt, and it to know that there were three states that really delivered for Trump, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania and of the and they're those three in those three states. The statewide all Ron's either for governor or for Senate for the US Senate of the Democrats won six out of seven. So you've seen a situation now where those key states now are really not as reliable Republican as they appear to be in two thousand. One. I mean, many of those voters went for Obama in two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve so it was that flip in two thousand sixteen that has to be looked at. And I think last night was in good insight into what is possible in twenty twenty in effect. We can talk about a twenty twenty began last night, but that's a different discussion. But I think you see it with taking back those those state houses there were some good minimum wage initiatives in states very troubling that good initiative in Washington state, the kind of carbon tax the green new deal went down. You still see the power of corporate money in our system and at the state level. There were six states that moved into total democratic contrived and the one of the New York state where the New York state Senate, which was had been very evenly divided. The Republicans control now is overwhelmingly democratic twenty three. I think is now the number in the New York state Senate win that means in terms of what can be accomplished. By progressives. Progressives won a supermajority in the Vermont house neutralizing, the newly reelected governor fill Scott's veto threat knows this. I mean, it's critical on so many levels. But historically, as you will know we've lost over a thousand state legislative seats in the last few years. So this is coming back and saying Democrats progressives are going to play at all levels, New York state. You studied you've written one? It's a major win us. See what governor Cuomo does with it because he's hid behind the inability to do much with the independent democratic conference now defeated one last race, which I think is very important one. And I were talking about is Antonio Delgado in the nineteenth congressional district that race was supercharged with toxic racist rhetoric. John Foucault has held out against good people except for teach out, but he's gone. So I think you know, it's a bittersweet, but I think real gains were made. And I think it would be wrong to. Downplay those one of the nation's most closely watched races of the year remains too close to call Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp, holding a slim lead over democratic challenger Stacey Abrams who is vying to be the first African American woman governor in US history, but Abrams is refusing to concede because thousands of absentee ballots have not yet been counted campus currently at fifty point five percent if he dips below fifty the race goes to a runoff. The Georgia race was marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression carried out by Brian camp. Again, who is as Georgia secretary of state is in control of the elections, despite the fact many demanded that he recused himself. Meanwhile, in Florida Democrat Andrew gillum conceded to Republican Ron to Santa's after a tight race Gillam attempting to become Florida's first African American government, but faced a string of racist attacks from outside groups into Santa's who told Floridians knocked. Monkey this up and in Maryland, Republican governor Larry HOGAN was re elected defeating democrat, Ben jealous. The former head of the N double ACP or shod Robinson. You're the executive director of color of change. Yeah. I think I think these. You know, what happened last night with particularly with Andrew in Stacy's race. I think represents the way that the south is changing.
