Hispanic Americans' Core Values Are Stronger Than Ever

"When you look at Latin America? You look at the history of our hemisphere, do these families, whether they're from Mexico, Guatemala, anywhere else, is it true that they really have when it comes to the role of men and women, children, education, work ethic. Do they have a conservative culture to begin with? And if that is the case, why have they voted Democrat or not been politically engaged for so very, very long? I absolutely love your question because I can definitely give you some insight in the audience about what that looks like. Look, honestly, the core values you just mentioned about family. And I'm going to add to that. The pro life pause in the Hispanic community to protect the unborn life is stronger than ever. You know, so much so that on March 9th Guatemala, the nation of Guatemala declared itself in a ceremony with their president and key pastors from the country to basically declare that Guatemala is the pro family pro life capital of ibero America, which are all the Spanish speaking nations of the world. So with a statement at that level, nilsa, I didn't see that on the cover of The New York Times or I didn't see a story in CNN about that. Oh, well, surely on Univision, oh wait, not there either. Surely on telemundo oh wait, it didn't make it there either as well. You know, it's crazy that not only is the conservative movement censored on mainstream national television channels, but in the Hispanic networks as well.

"So completely different from the rest of the country, really different food, different language, and also the nature is quite different. It's very jungly and coastal, obviously. Excellent. The only other kind of big popular spot is a beach town called that's become a hotspot for surfing. So if you're a big surfer, that's a good place to stop. That's on the Pacific side. Okay. Excellent. As we start to wrap this up, you were standing in the prettiest spot, let's do the prettiest spot in Guatemala first, doesn't it have to be on this itinerary? Where would that be? Where are you standing? What are you looking at? I would say, for me, attila is incredible. So I would say standing at mine's nose for sunrise watching the sun come up over the Lake and seeing all the colors and reflections. Excellent. And one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Guatemala. So chicken buses are a big thing in Central America in general. And quite common in Guatemala. And so if you're not familiar with it, those are usually old school buses that come from the U.S. or Canada that they paint in these incredible colors with all the bells and whistles that are just very interesting looking. No two alike. No two alike. And they just are the regular transportation. So people ride them. They're never too full. You can fit infinite amount of people on there. And chickens. And chickens. And they're just, they're so vibrant and just kind of fun to watch, and I don't know, it's just such a Guatemala thing for me. Now, I'm curious, as someone who is fluent in Spanish, when you get on the chicken bus, are you making friends with people and interacting with people how approachable are people in Guatemala if language is not a barrier?.

"Than that, there's just lots of exploring villages, like I mentioned, there is a lot of wellness type of activities that go in there. So if you like yoga, there's lots of yoga classes massage self care kinds of things are definitely an option. Those are the big things around Ottawa. Now obviously every time I ask people to put together a one week itinerary, which is what we kind of target in this show, you have to choose from so many different options. Some you choose because you like these three better than those three. And some you choose because you specifically don't want people to go there. Is there anything in Guatemala where you're recommending we don't do? I would just say with any kind of cultural tourism, you want to be aware of what you're invited to and what you're not. So I think if you want to observe the local culture, the best thing to do would be to find a reputable tour that can bring you to an experience that locals are comfortable with you joining and showing you instead of kind of inserting yourself into an experience or kind of being a voyeur, I guess. And are you thinking of specific instances where you have seen this behavior in tourists in Guatemala? A lot of people like to take pictures of people while they travel. And I understand that at the same time, it's probably the most plate thing to do to ask if it's okay. And then also just kind of people who maybe are too curious and want to kind of wander into or look inside people's homes or things like that. We should be respectful and only be doing things like that if we're invited. Sure. I understand the curiosity, but I don't want people walking into my house. Right, exactly. And I know there are things like cacao ceremonies that cacao is a big part of my culture..

"Again for sponsoring amateur traveler. And then speaking of volcanos, one of the other popular things to do in Antigua is to hike the volcano called pacaya. And bakaya is an active volcano and up until fairly recently kind of a big attraction with it is that you could see flowing lava. Okay. While you hike, which I'm sure is quite a site, I actually haven't done the hike, but it is quite popular. Right now I've heard the lava isn't flowing, but the ground is still hot. You can feel it and they roast marshmallows over it. So I'm sure that's quite interesting. But also there's a great view. I should tell people, if you have a chance to go someplace safely, obviously, where there is flowing lava and you can see it in a controlled and supervised environment. It is pretty amazing. I bet. To be in front of rock that is so hot that it is liquid. And it's 1500°. I've been close enough to lava. Close enough to touch it in smart enough not to. Oh, good. Three feet away from lava, and it's pretty amazing. But there are only certain times you'd want to do it. To get that close. Yeah. And then finally, the one other thing definitely would recommend from Antigua weather, some coffee farms that you can visit. And Guatemala has amazing, amazing coffee. So it's a great place to learn about coffee growing and how that works. So there's a coffee farm called finca la azotea. That I would recommend they do educational visits and it's a beautiful site and it's quite close to the city. Okay. And I can't translate finco the other day. The farm of the village. Oh, okay. Excellent. And so that's about it. That would very well fill a couple days in Antigua. And then from there, I'd say we are off to atlan, which is just about three hours away. Lake attila land, so it's a huge Crater Lake..

"If I got my bags back on the road I'm heading out there and I'm ready to go looking real good in my passport oh no 15 amateur traveler episode 795 today the amateur traveler talks about Mayan ruins, active volcanos, colonial cities, crafts, and hikes as we go to the Central American country of Guatemala. But maybe not maybe not to the day welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host, Chris Christensen, let's talk about Guatemala. I'd like to welcome back to the show Susan met noske from Brooklyn tropical dot com who's come to talk to us about Guatemala. Susan, welcome back to the show. Thank you. Thanks for having me. And I invited Susan back because I enjoyed the talk we did on Oaxaca, not that long ago and Susan pitched me Guatemala. So Susan, what's your connection with Guatemala? So I've just been several times over the years and it's a place that just kind of keeps pulling me back in and I feel like can never kind of get enough of it. I think the first time I went was in 2014 for just about a week and a half trip and really fell in love. It's such a rich culture and such an interesting place. So when I started traveling full time, I ended up going back again for a longer period for two or three weeks and then since then have been back again and again. So it's just one of those places that there's so much to see and learn and do and hear. Excellent. And why should someone go to Guatemala? So I think it's such a diverse place. I think you can do and learn so much in just a week's time. So the country has such a rich culture over half the population is indigenous. And the Maya culture is kind of the strongest ethnic group there. However, within the Mayan culture, there's at least 20 or more distinct ethnic groups and languages. So even within that, there's so much diversity and different traditions all over the country. And then also the nature is really diverse as well. You have everything from tropical coasts and rainforests up to super high mountains. There's a volcano, I think that's almost 14,000 feet. Lots of highlands, jungle. There's so much to see and experience, and then also just the history. It has such a long history. There's a really important Mayan archeological site there to visit. So it really has a little bit of everything for anyone. Excellent..

Why President Trump Is a Bad-Ass With Tom Homan

"Don't forget Tom's book defend the border and save lives, educate yourself on the threat to our sovereignty. Tom, can you give us a little peek behind the curtain of what it was like in the Trump administration when in comes this guy, he sees the swamp he's elected to build the wall, never done politics before, and then he has to deal with the governments of other nations. When he's talking to Guatemala to Mexico to Honduras, how did they behave? How do you get them not to just open the sluice gates in their countries? Talk about the reality of the other nations who really aren't that vested in helping us? President Trump, that's why, in my opinion, his greatest president, I've worked for and I've worked for 6000 Ronald Reagan. I respect him all, but no one did more to secure our border and president Trump. Look, he's a badass, right? He went down to Central America. He told Central America, we give you millions of dollars, add up to billions of dollars every year to help your country, so you're going to help me. You don't let this third country give me go through. Are you going to sign it? No stupid nice flowery diplomatic stuff. It was just talking. I cut off the purse strings. Mexico is the same reason mascot remained a menstrual program. They put military in the southern northern border. Could you say, you're going to do this? I want to tear a few. So he came in. His number one concern is the safety and security of this nation. He didn't give excuse me. He didn't care. He didn't care. You're going to break that out. Don't worry. He didn't care who you upset. Because his goal was to protect this

New Migrant Caravan: 'Tell Biden We're Coming'

"Tell Biden we are coming. The new migrant caravan of border jumpers and line cutters and criminals, new migrant caravan marches through Mexico to U.S. border. We have to change the way that we talk about this. These are not migrants. These are criminals. They have the intent to break federal law and state law and break into our country. Migrants are people that move from Southern California to the central valley to try to get work. That's would be a migrant. And this is nothing more than the movement of people for an economic incentive. The migrants mostly from Central America, South American Haiti are taking the 2500 mile to 200 mile journey to Texas. I'm reading from the Washington examiner. This is interesting. The group was organized through a QR code that allowed participants to register starting October 15th, according to Fox News. Due to the Mexican government banning migrants from hitching rides from truckers, the migrants will have to take the entire journey on foot. Tell Biden we are coming, said one migrant named William from El Salvador, told the news outlet, wait, so they have QR codes that they're organizing with this thing? What is this a rock concert? Let's get QR codes and we can figure out how to illegally enter into the country. Do you know what a QR code is? Some of you might be listening. You don't know what that is. It is when you see on a poster or on television, bottom right hand corner, it's it looks like a barcode, something that you would use at the grocery store and you put up your phone to it, and it helps you join the caravan. You know, we should have a QR code to subscribe to the Charlie Kirk show. That'd be interesting. Not join a caravan. Tell Biden we are coming. The caravan left chula on the border with Guatemala on October 23rd. With hours beginning of their journey the migrants were greeted by a wall of Mexican National Guard troops. This was a joke. The Mexican National Guard should have held the line. But the migrants forced their way to the blockade, continuing their journey to the United States. The caravan is moving north before the reinstatement of the remaining Mexico policy. Border arrests have surged to an all time high, more than 1.7 million in fiscal year 2021. How many getaways have there been, by the way? U.S. customs and border patrol did not immediately respond to questioning for comment from the new the new

Biden slips into political quicksand amid Haitian migrant buildup

"Starting off the show. Tonight we have a discussion about joe biden. Apparently he's doing more deportations than trump specifically deporting more asylum seekers than trump did well. Yeah we don't have the other categories of deportations as the numbers that That we came across. And it's a shocking number. I don't know the entire number. But i have here the us Moved over six thousand. Haitian asylum-seekers from the border at del rio so that's just haitian asylum-seekers just recently with you know the whip's did see that. Oh i saw that very scary stuff. There was ice agents. I guess they're ice. Sported patrol agents. Scroll on horseback whipping people catalyst. Yeah like cadillac. Wrangling them with whips and hitting them with the long whip. It looked incredibly frightening and in and scary to be in that situation with a bunch of armed men on horses attacking people who are just trying to escape the hellish life of living in haiti. And do you think the biden voters expected this to happen because the people on the left like biden love to position themselves as the friend of the immigrants they acted like trump was the worst for immigration and right immigration. I mean right. When joe biden got elected like somebody. I know got a deportation letter. Just and they're telling him oh. It's been a lot worse recently under biden. They told him that his friends sorry like his friends. That like is also a legal immigrant. Types may know some other people like that well according to the same place that you're looking here. It's says twitter account. Aj plus they're citing cnbc saying that biden is using what's called title forty two to expel asylum-seekers without a right to a hearing so you know what asylum is right. Yeah when you leave somewhere that is you're gonna die there or they're gonna put you in prison for the rest of your life or thereafter you for for whatever reason and the numbers here are just shocking. According to cnbc under trump and remember trump had four full years. And we're not even through year number one biden four hundred and forty th over four hundred. Forty thousand people were Were expelled under this title. Forty two during the trump administration and six hundred ninety thousand have been expelled under the biden administration under title forty two so that's a tremendous level of increase because if if biden is able to keep up the same amount over the next three years. Yeah he'd be like twenty four hundred weight. It was six hundred ninety thousand right now so yeah that'd be well over two million people well so you know that is just absolutely horrifying because these people if they are indeed being prosecuted or persecuted. They're going to be sent back to likely their deaths or likely to a prison cell. Yeah it's probably worse for you if you try to leave and then they find out about that absolutely it is. Let's see there's other story here from cnbc biden. Administration appeals judges order. This is from less than a week ago to stop. Expelling migrants under trump era pandemic policies. So there was a judge who said they need to stop using title forty. Two and biden is appealing so this is yet another example of how joe biden is more like trumpy than the trump haters thought. That trump was like people hated trump for all these different reasons and biden has continued trump's policies and crank them up. Yeah my friend. Sent me this weird video of biden today. It was him when he was younger. You know he. He's always been in government office. So i don't know what his title was at the time but he was being interviewed. Probably a senator or something. Yeah and he was saying he was saying. What do people think. I care more about bosnia than haiti because it's white people in bosnia and it's you know black people in haiti and then he just went on and said well if haiti sank into the ocean. I wouldn't care just like that was his answer to that was like what is that supposed to mean. Well i'll tell you clear what it means. It means he has no empathy right to say that about another an entire group of people living somewhere on the planet to say they just if they just all died one day he would have no concern whatsoever for that and you juxtapose that against what he says while he's running for office which is to make himself seem like this all caring. Oh the democrats we care about people that's clearly. Bs tel aviv From penn and teller thought he was going to heal us all with his love. Is that what taylor said. Y- you read that on the show. It was numbered teller's lider new saying let pendulum but tell her was going along with pen from what i could see. So presumably teller didn't disagree otherwise he wouldn't have been in the photo op. Yeah just mixed them up. Sorry according to the story here. Cnbc biden administration appealing. A judge's order to stop using a trump era pandemic policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants without giving them a chance to apply for asylum. So they're using covert as the excuse. The departments for his just cove it. That's why we had to have horseback riders with the because of it. It's just you covered. The department of justice filed an appeal of district. Judge emmet sullivan's ruling thursday bars. The federal government from expelling migrants under the public health law known as title. Forty two sullivan. The ruling to go into effect in fourteen days the appeal is the latest move by the bided administration to address the twenty year high surge of migrants from mexico and central america crossing the border illegally which remains a political flashpoint between republicans and progressive democrats title forty two is first introduced by donald trump in march of twenty twenty over concerns about the corona virus pandemic. It gave the government the power to turn back any migrant caught crossing the border illegally regardless of their country of origin to supposedly stop cove nineteen. So if you had managed to escape from north korea and you made it to the united states which is no easy task. Mind you. it's one thing to get here from haiti or guatemala. Or duress or something. It's a whole other story to get here from north korea. But if he'd managed to and they caught. You did it cover. Nineteen you gotta go back to north korea and you back to north korea where you would certainly either be put into a hellish prison labor camp and then of course all your family members have probably already been put into a prison labor camp. Because that's what they that's how they roll over north korea. If you try to escape or you do something bad. They punish your whole family for it. So you know you're going to prison and it's going to be like the worst possible prison labor camp experience basically on the planet right now if they don't just go right ahead and just summarily execute you but this quote from a man at the border a haitian man with two children. He says the. Us government

Of course, you point out she was focused on this Northern triangle countries. A lot of her work was in Guatemala working with that government.

"The.

Us authorities move to expel many of the more than twelve. Thousand migrants camped around bridge in del. Rio texas off to crossing from mexico. The only obvious parallel for such an expulsion without an opportunity to seek asylum was in nineteen ninety-two when the coast guard intercepted haitian refugees at sea. Similarly large numbers of mexicans have been sent home during peak years of immigration but over land a not so suddenly central americans have also crossed the border in comparible numbers without being subject to mass expulsion although mexico has agreed to accept them from the us the pandemic related authority in effect since march. Twenty twenty when the border was closed on sunday. The migrants initially found other ways to cross nearby until they were confronted by federal and state law enforcement.

Asylum Seekers or Economic Migrants? With Former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan

"Let's talk about who these people because this isn't really discussed with so is we accept so many people land of immigrants so let. Let's be clear who's coming across the border. My this. this is personal to me. My parents were actual. Refugees got asylum status. Why because my father was liberated from a communist prison where he had been put there for his beliefs not committing a crime but for believing that communism was bad. He was on a shoot to kill list if he was captured. After the hungarian revolution he wasn't going back to prison. He was going to be executed in the street so when he escaped with his seventeen year. Old future live in the refugee camp. After six weeks of interrogation by counterintelligence offices he was given refugee asylum status which is given to those who wear the for religious political or other reasons will be allowed to stay in that country because otherwise they would die. Ob persecuted if they return in the hundreds of thousands of people across the border. Are these people mark. Morgan asylum seekers with refugee status. No they're economic migrants. Your your listeners. Need to pay attention. What you just said you're spot on asylum asylum is if you're a victim of state-sponsored persecution because of your religious beliefs or your your membership in a protected class your political affiliation. That's what asylum it's not for economic conditions. So look i got. You may live and in some harsh economic conditions. And i've got you may live in a city where there's general violence god and that's not good but that is not a balance island quite this administration knows it. Ninety percent of silent claims are invalid and found to at the end receive a court order removal and they know that but they're still encouraging illegal immigration. And who's coming. Is it old mexico. Guatemala and on tourists whose combat she. That's another false narrative of out there. Look this is why we say. It's not just about our public safety. It's also about our national security right now on average border to apprehend illegal aliens from one hundred forty different countries. It's two hundred in the world guys.

Because he's he's spouting off about replacement ideology which is sprint. Conspiracy theorist for for far right trolls on the internet. No actually democrats admitted that they are pro demographic replacement. Why does any of this surprise us when we have things like. Crt raging throughout our institutions especially our schools that are essentially anti white racialist marxism. Why should be. Why should we be surprised that there's such a strong anti white sentiment within the democrat community. That they are cheering and they have been for years by the way. We're just sort of finally. it's week we call it the great awakening of america to the weakness so we are becoming awake to the wo- kness so we're not not replacement some fringe thing. I mean they're just really proud about it but this is the great irony of it now. I am very anti illegal immigration. I'm actually very in favor of decreasing legal immigration. I think one point two million legals is far too much. So let's take that down by like half if not three chords. I'm not even kidding. I think they're good immigrants. And then there are not so good immigrants and i think illegal immigration is an absolute travesty. Nevertheless sweet irony of all of this and we saw this recently with the cuban crisis that has erupted that the democrats are very happy to take future democrat. Voters or who they think are going to be democrat voters from the northern triangle nicaragua salvador honduras guatemala for mexico. They're very happy to take those immigrants and they're very happy to basically make claims that the border is totally under control. But it's not because actually they're playing along gay. They call that replacement theory or ideology. It's total garbage. It's actually just calling a spate of spayed. We know what they're up to. We know what it is and yet look at these headlights.

Biden Says Guns Are Source of Violence yet Fails to Study Facts and Root Causes

"So tomorrow, Joe Biden will have his Paula bureau that surrounds some cobble together a bunch of words on note cards where he'll talk about guns. As the source of violence in this country. Guns. It's like the filibuster. We got to get rid of the filibuster. We got to get rid of guns. See, they don't want to dress the people behind the filibuster and what they've done over the decades. They don't want to address the people who pulled the trigger on the guns. No, no, no, no, it's the guns. It's the guns. Even though we know more people are killed in this country with knives. Those are the static. A Who cares? Facts don't matter when you're debating the left. They just don't. It's their agenda. They drive the narrative. They have morons like Chuck Todd out there. Pushing the narrative because they're good Little Democrats, soldiers They're not going to talk about the root causes of crime. You know when it comes to immigration The The second. Birthing person, aka the vice president. Sugar to Guatemala. We can. Hey, you know, we got to get to the root causes and we had really a good Good meeting. I would call it a success if I regretting myself. Can we get to the root causes of crime Now? What are your white racist? Oh, Guns. Guns. Okay, It's guns. The Democrats have answers to nothing. Because they reject reason and knowledge and science while claiming to embrace all of them. So it's going to be guns because that's easy. It's easy to control. You.

He kinda ducking the immigration authorities in Because they made statements public statements that if his work is false he'll be arrest so when doesn't make a lot of sense to me is back here in louisiana. His lawyer jack washerman was down the government. A these guatemalan papers are false. You deported him under false papers. And i guess maybe carlos an effort to avoid being arrested their and water malla later that day he went to the guatemalan authorities. And said yeah. Here's my paperwork yeah. It's legit eight war. So here young carlos saying yeah. This is legit stuff down here. While his hands fake back there apparently the authorities at the beginning they just accepted it. Looked like okay. Well you good to go. Mr marcello have on with a comes out later that heralds had some ties with some hira politicians and of course eventually carlos is imported from while maslesa which adam got into that aspect. Yeah he spent about a month in. Guatemala is like. I said you know when i started doing that. Series of years of analyst information like you were saying earlier life gets in the way some comes up and i've been wanting to do this big story and posed in story in the ncis of the whole thing in his life man. That ain't gonna happen this year. Either i just started doing these little bits and right now. I've gotten to the point where. Carlos is arrested on april twenty first which me wednesday april twenty first. Nineteen sixty one. He's arrested in guatemala or having false papers it takes them another couple of weeks to actually import them out of the country but Though i know the basic story what happens after april twenty first. I don't know all details. You haven't had time travel. I understand the in the days after you know he's told oh you're good to go enjoy guatemalan anything. He has his life. Jackie is daughter. Laurence i believe comes down is brother sammy vincent and his son. Joe they all fly down Wisdom this is the first week is there. So you know all the stories about carlos he spent three days in the jungle could call live and laugh his lawyer mike morale he comes down. Also i mean there's even a picture in while ago poster. Here's even pitcher. Carlos whose son john and his uncle musher. He's actually one on his uncle galeano at a racetrack in guatemala zero. So he wasn't walking through the jump. So but that's that's all. I got right now. All right pretty much mania back. I would imagine they had to do was get up. Some type of plane gets or something and get back. United states air. You know. I don't know what you guys are talking and me. This is who. I am illegal. But i got papers. Yeah but yeah and of course we know ever though yeah different volumes as it is now. There's no computers. Fingerprinting was routed late. New guys like this were the hell connections. I made out. We had these chicago mobsters that basically the attorney general united states. Tom clarke them. Get out early. Because they helped. Harry truman get elected president. Id forty eight so it was different back then when it came to that level of cooperation an politicians and governmental bureaucrats iran the immigration. I answer whatever they called it back then so it was different back then but i could see worried. Just take a little vacation in. He'll let me say that. Carlos he had business dealings in guatemala. Yeah e. imported tomatoes course. He's known as the tomato salesman he important tomatoes from guatemala imported weed from guatemala. Any also had an interest in the shrimping industry. Guatemala in fact is uncle lee. Jay leno had lead of shrimping boats. That tramps in the waters off a tamala. He was based in patterson louisiana fleet at the hab business down there and do says a basic run through what happened after his deported out of guatemala. He was deported into al salvador. And he stayed there for a few days and that he was at a military camp. He stayed there for few days. In some al salvador's military commander damon one day in bylaws point. He's with mike. Is families left on that the louisiana. He's with his lawyer. Mike they're together. They're anelle salvador. Officer comes in and said you're going to be deported. Two doors so get your stuff together. You got five minutes. Whatever they put him on a bus and according to the stories this goes in honduras of through this mountain. Path is still count. As you've seen a movie where it's a drop off yoshiro. Drop off you know down his mouth. This little rhode chugging up apparently when they get about twenty miles into honduras. There's still in the middle of this mountain range. They stopped the bus and they put carlos in might off bus stop. So that's where the walking through the jungle came from. It actually happened decide. Not in the way that olive miss talia. They ended up walking seventeen miles down this mountain. It reached a village. They got a couple of local guides to take him to a town about seventy miles down the field and i guess at one point. The guides started acting a little. Hokey mike in carlos. They weren't good about their chances of actually seeing italy's again. I good chance my carlos they designed to get away from they drop behind and they kind of fall down the sloping being dropped in the side of the mountain. Away from these guys. And that's when carlos broke stories vary. It's either two or three ribs but they ended up making it to a town in honduras. Hannah lose track of what happened. After that pantley. They slept for a couple of days. And now this is i guess. Middle of mayors. A while.

"Him so i don aware came from where basically what happened is carlos ever since nineteen fifty two very after the key fowler hearings where he was brought in he took the fifth. One hundred fifty do towns. I think it was after that the i. n. s. came along in his status illegal alien was brought out. Ins came along and deportation orders were placed against him in fifty three so of course he was fighting knows orders for the whole time and believe every time they were allowed. Unlimited appeals anytime. An order came down. So of course you know carlos out money didn't lawyers and everything he was able to put it off now. It was deported but he had to go in quarterly to check in with. Ins to let them know. Hey i'm still here. Still an alien whatever he not just check in with so he went in on april fourth nineteen sixty one for regularly scheduled meeting. He wasn't as some of the stories go. He wasn't rousted in the middle of the night. Taken out of his bed in his pajamas it wasn't up off the street like guys with the stasi or whatever thrown into a car and he went to a regular scheduled meeting and basically as i understand it. What happened is they gave him a letter to read saying. Hey we founded discover that your citizen. Guatemala out bobby. Kennedy knew that with bullshit they knew it was a fake and for immersive by basically said you're susan while marlin and so you're will be deported immediately. And of course no carlos. He had a lawyer with him which is another part of the story. That never gets tola a lawyer. Which basically as i understand it is kinda house counsel for carlos is name was built near. He had an office in town and country. A motel office complex. Where carlos at his office. I think from what i can gather. Just kinda basically did mundane everyday things for hours. Anyways to bake huge agents came the office air and escort a carlos and fill up out to a waiting car he was taken to. the airport. plane was already started. They ushered carlos onto the blame of the two agents and they wouldn't let smith get out to make any phone calls until the plane was in the air and that's another thing carlos. He wanted to make a phone call to his wife to his lawyer. Wanna get money. Wanna get a change of clothes toothbrush. They told him no parallel said. I was kidnapping. i mean. yeah he gone was under the guys of lawfully none in olive so the really funny miss of this is once they were up in the plane and they got over water malla. I heard that this was done to him. Twice on one show they struck a parachute to them and basically gave him the boot out of the plane at all. Yeah it's an it's it's good story but yeah that's all it is. Fbi agents when they got back they probably told everybody that stories with over guatemala through a parachute. i'm get babble. He looked like he opened the not. Yeah i mean you know fifty one year old guy. They kick them out on. What actually happened is a looming do water city into the air as i understand it. They're airport. There was a portion of it that was military us all. They flew into the military air force base in carlos given over to watermelon. Air force. colonel antonio batches. I think i'm saying be a dr. A s authors and as the story goes watchers still marcello. Hey you know. There's a lot of reporters outside the gay. What do you wanna do. And carlos response was basically. Don't wanna get to a hotel somewhere where i can rest. Yes the while for whatever. Reason wasn't really made clear. He landed in guatemala city about six pm. Local time they ended up staying somewhere on the air force base until about eleven. Thirty twelve o'clock in the nicest vegas hotel and guatemala city. At the time anyways was eagle. Apparently botches came back after several hours vo carlos. A lot of reporters at hotel expecting you there. What do you wanna do and dallas. Didn't want to deal reporters zo somehow. What ended up happening is batches gave over our losses. Wellbeing cared to is secretary who was named miss jinx. They now gave first name. He's secretary she lived in Stays she's gang legend. Everything in the first thing she did was take carlos to get the i forget the name of the restaurant and went to by the time they get done eating and get ready to go somewhere like thirty anymore so she says hey we probably could get you into the biltmoore but there might still reporters whatever happened. She says instead. Why don't you just come to my apartment and you can stay there for tonight. So he said okay and he gets the miss mistakes place and he said all. He added soon on she.

"Us now with oriole ruez soto. Who is a policy analyst at the migration policy institute arielle. Welcome back to the show and given me so. What is the significance of vice president harris's trip to mexico and guatemala. Well first of all. I think it signifies that there's going to be a different use approach to the region one. That's focused on co-responsibility and really seeing the capacity so his governments to have a larger role in migration management meaning not just immigration control efforts but also thinking about communitarian pathways Legal employment opportunities to come to united states or to mexico in that scenario and understand and coordinated development easier. I'm more effectively going forward. Of course two visits are not going to change things overnight but they do pointing to it the the a good direction and understanding how to change the dynamics and how to make sure that the governments can do more and should do more In their own neighborhood.

Harris, in Guatemala, Warns Potential Migrants: 'Do Not Come'

"Border during her first foreign trip since taking office correspondent Clayton Neville says Harris was visiting with leaders of Central American countries. While visiting with the president of Guatemala Vice President Kamala Harris had a message for Central Americans considering making the trek to the U. S. Do not come. Do not come. Harris adamantly discouraged illegal immigration and insisted the U. S will enforce laws and secure the border amid a continued search, and I believe If you come to our border, you will be turned back. So let's discouraged. Our friends, our neighbors, our family members from embarking on what is otherwise an extremely dangerous journey. The vice president stressed the Biden administration's plan to improve conditions in Central American countries by doing away with the desire to leave. She announced the creation of a task force to combat human trafficking and drug smuggling in the region when we see some of the most vulnerable in our communities Being take advantage of Being sold for profit being abused. It should be a priority for all of us who care about the human condition and humanity. Another task force will target corruption, which has been prevalent in some of the region's governments. Our Justice Department, our Treasury Department and our State Department will work together to conduct investigations and train local law enforcement. To conduct their own. The vice president promised community outreach, including a new program focused on creating education and economic opportunities for girls. We will also invest in agribusiness. And affordable housing and supporting entrepreneurs back home. Harrison's trip isn't sitting well with some Republicans who blame

"Issue corruption. The conversation that i had with president. John tate today was very frank and very candid and i think this is a quality that he and i appreciate in each other following all of this is diana beltran with the watchdog group. The washington office on latin america. She said harris is right to focus on corruption. And unfortunately over the last several years where you've seen across the region including one tamala has been a backlash against anti anti impunity efforts and increasingly actions by corrupt elites to undermine democracy and the rule of law so as long as we're on the subject explain in simple terms how corruption actually reduces the impact usa to central america when we talk about corruption in guatemala in central america. That we're not talking about a few bad apples of few corrupt government officials that accept bribes. But what we're talking about is systems that have been put in place where corrupt elites and in the case of guatemala increasingly tied to criminal groups have taken hold of government institutions and have used their positions of power to enrich themselves by embezzling millions of public funds at the expense of the majority of the population in a regionally. You're talking around. Thirteen billion that i believe is lost a year to corruption. That means that there's no money. For education building a better healthcare system infrastructure it impacts the ability of governments to respond to natural disasters or climate change impacts security and impacts every aspect of daily life And is that thirteen billion dollars. Just guatemala or all three countries in the northern triangle. That's regionally for central america. So we hear about the three countries of the northern triangle Guatemala el salvador honduras. The people from those countries are most likely to try to enter the us but vice. President harris is visiting only. Guatemala was a talent is in central. America are immense right now. One relations between the biden administration and will kelly government in el salvador very tens. This is a government in el salvador. That has repeatedly taken steps to attack the rule of law to concentrate power in the hands of executive aaron dismantle any real system check and balance in the case of honduras. You know over the last year so the. Us department of justice has been investigating investigated and convicted the president's brother for drug trafficking so it sounds like basically you're saying guatemala may be corrupted. It's the most likely government where vice president harris could get some traction cooperation. I think they started with guatemala by default not by design but i would say that if corruption and the rule of law is not front and center in discussions between the us government and the guatemalan government. That trip could do more damage than good. And i say this because since twenty. Nineteen when the u. n. Lead commission to tackle corruption was dismantled by the previous administration in guatemala. You've seen a consistent effort and actions by the government and by corrupt political and economic elites to dismantle the advances that had been made in the anti-corruption effort. How then can vice president harris hope to help build a model with guatemala. That might show the way forward and stemming migration unfortunately i think the us different administrations have often turned their attention to the region whenever they perceive a crisis and then attention wanes and shifts elsewhere. These are long term challenges. These are deep structural challenges that are going to require a long term sustainable approach and so you know if the administration is committed to helping these societies address these structural challenges. Then we need to commit for the long haul. Adriana beltran is with the washington office on latin america. she's been telling us about the challenges vice president harrison. The white house face on harris's first aren't policy trip to central america adriana. Thank you very much. thank you for. Having sunday's presidential race in peru remains too close to call.

It's my country. But i cannot leave here so or thousand. Says he doesn't expect militarizing. Borders will stop the crisis. People are fleeing for the world. I'm for more on president-elect biden's approach to immigration. we turn out to chris. Ramon he's an independent policy and research analysts. What is it satis of these asylum agreements that the trump white house signed with guatemala honduras and el salvador. Guatemala agreement was in place from fall. Twenty nineteen into march twenty twenty suspended to the covid pandemic i believe. As of december clingy twenty. The administration is now fully implemented these agreements. but what we haven't really seen any major reports of individuals being sent back to these countries. So that's established that i think the administration went ahead and said let's just implement this before the incoming administration comes in overturns them but in terms of actual real impact on myron flows. I think this is just an implementation by name. only. I don't think it's really been operational. And how they will be able to see it. Be fully operational before. President biden overturn. Stuff so what has a biden administration said so far about these agreements. And what he's gonna do with them is going to overturn them. That's the stated purpose. This very clear that those are among the policies that the trump administration's implemented at the us mexican border. And that's something that he wants to overturn alongside with other policies at the trump administration has Plays like margaret protection. Protocols found this operation policies this part of the suite of policies that president-elect biden wants to overturn so by the administration doesn't wind these agreements. What would happen next if say large group of asylum seekers and migrants get to the us mexico border even within the next few weeks or months so the trump administration maintain the suite of policies that he used to sort of term in how has been remove migrants from the us. mexico border. president biden has said he wants a completely make a clean break from trump administration as he's going to limit policies. The thing is it's a question of when he's going to eliminate those policies and i think that's been an area of major debate within the incoming administration and also more broadly with the immigration advocacy community. Do you see deportations continuing though i mean deportation was a tool used a lot. In president obama's immigration toolbox president has stated that he's going to be issuing moratorium on interior removals for one hundred days. That's something that he's sort of been floating out there then. Ways of the united states could approach immigration enforcement differently. You so what. Policy options are available if the biden administration focuses on say the roots of why people are choosing to leave their homes like no jobs violence or you mentioned hurricanes hurricanes. Earthquakes the consensus. That's been dying is basically providing development assistance to a free northern triangle countries the economic development rule of law as a corruption practices and sort of boosted human security for vulnerable populations such as women and girls. Those are sort of three areas that you always focus on advertising rick. I think what's important to know is studies. Do show that as you're proving. The conditions in these countries is actually more likely that people will migrate because they have the means to do so at least in the short term and over long term. People aren't gonna stick around. The important thing is that studies also show that this aid is good for improving the conditions. But the jury still out whether or not that actually deters immigration. And i think what you're looking at development aid you need to think of it as we're just a bigger improve conditions in these countries. I think it's gonna be hard for Improve the conditions countries. So people migrate and i think bad swear that has some nuance and understanding. We're gonna talk causes to improve her causes. I think we need to be realistic. As to whether party root causes will completely eliminate the push factors for immigrants. I think let's just improve situations for the sake of improve them and then any additional benefits from that when it comes to migration management chris moon is an independent policy and research analyst. Speaking with us from washington. Thanks very much for being here. Chris thank you today. On capitol hill. Confirmation hearings are in full swing. The senate is questioning some of president.

How even though the would that seasoned still pretty pretty wet? Yeah decorate. It's it. Is it a struggle so is it in Texas? We have all kinds of storms. But are you getting more of the light torrential downpours or is it? Kinda like rainy days. Yeah so learn rainy season. You can imagine in the tropics. It's GonNa rain like between one o'clock to three o'clock everyday into poor. Yeah typically we'll because in Texas you know growing up in upstate New York. I was used to storms being a certain way in a certain intensity. And they're not necessarily as crazy. They're not as crazy in Texas in. We get a lot of drizzles. We get a lot of things but pouring pouring rain is not something you actually. The last big storm had it finally poured board and it like gotta a panel off my shed. Whoa GO REPLACE. When I get back. We'll how are you adjusting to this new climate in Texas? He all that it. It's actually Nice It's not as except when it's like super drought summer. It's it's it's not that bad in in New York.

Do you find like the. Can you take dirt? Bikes around our people riding horses. Like what what is like the. If you'RE GONNA go to watermelon really experience it you go to the country to try to stay in the cities. What if I was to come visit you where where will be to restaurant? Volcanoes are so cool me and they're everywhere there's twenty twenty plus volcanoes and is kind of like a mountain ranch or the in a row or they're kind of spread out there. It's kind of an an amount range right so school backwater mollahs. There's so many different climates. There's the coastal areas which are the lowlands which really warm and Muggy Lotta Mosquitoes And a lot of shirt pain then. Those are broken up by a really big really tall ranger volcanoes and in that range. There's actually three active volcanoes so those are the cool ones. Hike is actually feel it and see how you can even like the marshmallows on the lava. I mean you can get right up next to it and I think those are. Some of favorite experiences are doing the volcano. But then there's amazing mountain biking. I mean there's a legally I think they have to have trails from one piece of lamb to another piece of land. Or what they call single-track real narrow trails that you come out Mike on as La Mountain biking kayaking One of those beautiful lakes in the world is in Guatemala. Coppola guideline surrounded by Kino's in it is just hugh just absolutely beautiful and you can swim in Kayak into all sorts of fun stuff And then there's a whole nother culture of coffee right so there's this whole copy experience that they do. You can go horseback riding the coffee farms and get zipped laying there Ala Guatemalan coffee. Dude it is naturally sweet. The only milk. You don't eat sugar. It's just so good right off the bat tell my friends if let me make you coffee and are trying to make very gentle way that you can drink it without needing milk or sugar or any of those days. Coffee is amazing player. I'm probably if I'm addicted. One thing is probably cough era out man who is GonNa present for you okay. Excellent beef jerky and Coffee Jerky for life. Now all right good deal me I love it. That's you know what I'm saying if we'RE GONNA teacher give even better. So that's all I mean. These are actually both local bars in Austin who but usually my career represent I just I just throw on whatever I bring so. I didn't realize that I looked and I was like. Oh they're both bars. Yeah but So I asked everyone who's comes on the show. What's your message to a? You didn't starting barbecue. But you found a passion for you studied but the greats What's your message to people who right now are getting into barbecue or getting into this business and and you know her are trying to open a restaurant or just get better cooking. What's the message guy? There's so many if our to really pick it one I would save focus on quality right. Don't hurt barbecue barbecues. Very very sensitive industry right now. There are a lot of people doing some amazing things barbecue. And unfortunately there's a lot of people doing some crappy things in barbecue and you know I know I know you guys know you can drive down anywhere down the street. They get video. Barbecues can be horrible right. That's hurting barbecue. Those people that are not picking up the quality. They're not understanding what they're doing you know they're just making something to make some profit and that's not not the reasoning it at a barbecue if you WANNA make some money dude go pickup pizzas or Asian food. You know there's a lot of money in those and there's not a whole lot of culture here in the states for that but barbecue because it's originated here. It's very culture rich. It's got a lot of science behind it now now. There's a lot of technology that can help you out From WIFI thermometers to To pressure sensors to Took me fat content sensors? You Know You. You can really do it right. Very small investment but really understanding that quality is the most important thing and start with quality meat. Oh God so easy so easy to make a good brisket. Just buy good meat so easy to make a ribs just by really good quality ribs and you have some of the best ribs guarantee you. That's the number one easiest thing to make a good quality restaurants as good quality product and everybody says Oh chef say that Focus on quality of the product in your leg. I bet you do but now that I'm into this business. It's so obvious. That is the difference between the guys that. Walk Away with you. Know Twenty thousand dollars a year profit from the guys that make two hundred thousand dollars a year profit. You know. I'm talking Prophet. I'm not talking sales. I'm talking walking away with a bunch of money in your pocket. The biggest differences the way they source a quality of their products. And that's it. Yeah I mean you pay a little bit in the beginning for a better quality but pays off tenfold. Sometimes in the end league may not have a whole lot of Russian experience by what I've learned is that it's all about percentages right. So if you're making fifteen percent profit bottom line profit on one hundred thousand dollars it's significantly different than fifteen percent profit on three million dollars right and you're going to get up to three million dollars by hidden a higher price point on your menu. I mean I'd say to everybody I got. I got three jobs in my restaurant three jobs. That's all they do all day long as these three things and if I'm not doing what he's three things I need to focus. The first is lowering costs. Second is getting more people in my door and the third thing which allowed people get is increasing the value of my client right normally like for example. When I first started I think my average client was dropping like seven the ten bucks in my restaurant. Now I've got them as much as like eighteen nineteen dollars per person right. That's a significant change other than double per personnel meeting more people but the value of the person coming into the door got now deserts. I've got the Jerky I've got's. Some gypsum. Caso that we you know we can sell the table. We got wings so now. They're buying multiple things before they were just getting sandwich to go. So by increasing value you can really especially with quality products. You can really increase your sales without really doing a whole lot. Words of wisdom from Blake. The Guatemalan Texan yet. Ever and yet we have dinner go to but I really appreciate you taking the time. It's been fun talking to you. You have a really cool story. Thank you appreciate it man. Thank you so much in common in the no. The theme eat now. I got a job NOCCO. Bat DEPUTY BUCKLE RAISE. A may attack tongue with the details on the land to be nothing to meet..

"We possibly can through not only finances. That's that's actually one of the worst things we can do. Just give them money so we actually do projects where we take. Our employees will close. A restaurant per name will go out and we'll help paint a school or You know rent some pressure washers and we'll just go clean the dog pound you know and right now we're working with a horse. Ngo The open. The these some of these courses get rehabbed that have just been through. Poor education malnourished. You know these horses are beautiful creatures and we make sure that that that could save up. Of course it goes along with the country Texas attitude. Too right yeah well I am. You're also on in a totally different landscape Specifically you know people. Keep telling me about this volcano. You're going on you. Tell us more about that. She's yeah so the first two years. I was in Guatemala. Was a tour guide man. This is funny. This is cool and you always have to bring. According to the government you have to bring a local guide up to the top of the volcano with you as a you know how for the the local economy And every time I went up to the volcano when I was working for this tragedy had volcano at least two to three times a week right and every time I went up there the local guides Roy varying down a little bit and they'd put their sandwich for lunch in the mall. Kato they pull it out a bill steaming hot so we started doing a two in one day. I brought up an infrared thermometer. And it's sitting there and it's reading like two hundred and fifteen degrees What's going on here so I got a camera together and we decided Me and my wife decided we were just GonNa take some some meat up. We did the whole the whole journey with a big group and we buried the the meat overnight and pulled it up. The next day was tenders. He can imagine that was beautiful and that was A. I'm guessing the Parker. Whoever controls the volcano had to kind of prove that Cook it question? No it's it's more of an open system. Yeah they'd need to approve it We did we've we've done one on if you've okay knows and we did have to get approval for some of them but this specific. Whoa KENO. I believe is a national park. It is run by the Tourism Organization But it's not as regulated. You can almost do whatever you want up there. And so were you. Did you wrap the meter? Did you build almost like a chamber and then coverage not just wrapped Dug a big hole and because the volcanoes it's just inactive it. It's not dormant yet so it's inactive meat it's got a hot core and The last went office. Nineteen seventy six And actually if you watch the video it's on our facebook page if you watch the video of of the volcano cooked it we did. There's another volcano right next to it. It's actually active. And he goes off between fifty two hundred times a day. It's just constantly going on. Wow Big puffs and if you can imagine like The original atom bomb imagine that one of these volcanic eruptions fifty to two hundred times of Day as about three times the size of whether that ables so these are big eruptions that are going off right next to us like right by mile from US everything to see and hear it through a here you can feel it you can feel the heat coming off of it by as this thing just does all his act another up into the air and is beautiful. It's incredible experience. And so you know because the book as we were on to Okinawa next to each other we were on the one that's just inactive so so the hot core and it'll it'll go off again someday soon maybe and a still hot barbecue hot. Yeah it's cool. I've been meaning a lot of guys from Mexico who are learning to barbecue. And we've been talking about the COD. Cina which is like a cooking in a box or burying old barbecue elegant. The cow had gray and bearing in the ground. So it's interesting to see how even though it's turned into metal tubes that idea of like creating a hot kind of hole and then burying things is still alive. I mean even. I interviewed a Daniel Brown Brown's barbecue a little place actually in Boulder Creek. Like off of a corner bar is. I don't know if you you've been in that area that he He is a descendant of one of the first free black colonies in Texas and they learned from the guys from Mexico to bury it and that turned into stone pits like Wayne Millers and so. I've been kind of hunting down these ideas. We who knows where barbecue started. Or if it's just a cycle where everyone just kinda cooked with fire but it's interesting that the digging the hole in the ground is still kind of you see it in in Hawaii all over the world and you're doing it with a volcano. Yeah that's exactly right. I mean we're using kind of internal core instead of putting stuff on top. Yeah but that's that's interesting You know going back to the roots. I think is what we're all trying to do. You know there's some new modern cooking techniques but really like to get that texture and get that real science meat science the more back to the roots. You go the more you're GONNA achieve the results you want. I think that's so cool. You See said it. Just kidding get into it like that one. I'm sure you learn a lot of history of Guatemala. Just being there people probably tell you all kinds of stories. Yeah The big thing. Guatemala's the banana leaf wrapping in reading things in a banana leaf heard so they've got tamales and they've got certain things erupted banana leaves and cook. And what's cool about a banana leaf? Is it so resilient you can throw in Italy right at a fire? And the protect whatever's inside of it. Let's cooking with that so we can play without a little bit here and there one of the things that I become a real big fan of his What they call a caveman steak or the cowboy steak or they're cooking it right on the cold sear it as one of the things that if you go online and look at some of our videos at some of the things that I really like doing getting right on the coals. Have you ever raptor brisket on banana leaves? And so the foil Having your might be a little genius man. Yeah I mean it's probably more expensive than the foil. I'M GONNA. I need to write that down. That's that's an interesting idea because it makes a lot of sense what you want in a foil which I think could achieve is. You don't want there to be an air gap between the foil and the meat that dries the exterior part of the meat out right. You do want a little bit of crunch The you know the Exterior Bark and you wanted to be a little bit dry. But you can achieve that in other ways so maybe wrapping An entire brisket in a banana leaf. That's you may go man when you make it You'll have to let me know on the plan. A trip do it is so cheap and easy to get to Guatemala right.

"And I think he really scared the crap. Outta me when he was showing me the fire damage that he had had and even the entryway at still have fired. An Emmy and the walls are black. Soot in there. It's a pretty amazing building high in so I just got super shared and you know when I learned about how reversal offset. You can still decide. No fat can Ralph decide and you can do the same drain for the exhaust Mister Designing my own smokers and they're all reversible upset except one near did yeah and You know army of Ev Maze. He makes reverse lows as well also is not that common in Texas but you know they're not unheard of behind it. It's a it's a cool design because you are giving the smoke low more time you are almost slowing it down through the chamber. Exactly and biggest thing for us is direct flow versus reverse flow is weakened pressurize the chamber. That's the biggest thing for us. We're at about five thousand or just a little over five thousand feet. So there's the we get a Lotta leaky meet. If you don't pressure chamber and we pressure as the chamber in two ways first we use water pans. And then the second restrict restrict airflow on the store. You like actually like locking the doors down and xactly so you. It's like a pressure cooker. Almost new were just over ATM. So we're just over one bar at the Just over one atmosphere yeah one atmosphere so it's just a little bit of pressure obviously can't really pressure is like a pressure cooker right. We don't do that. We're being a little bit of the exhaust. Not obviously not like a pressure is an insane device right. But you don't you don't want to risk like an explosion. Yeah no they would never. That's not how it works. Yeah But it's cool that you you you do that much work. I mean it's a lot of people. Just get a bunch of wood and could do and make it work. Well I am not a chef. I can tell you right now. I'm the high chef. I'm engineer right so for me. The cooking is a science. And that's about what it boils down to for me and it's funny because whatever. I'm running around talking to other pit bosses unlike it. How do you do that and I always like? Oh you know the the spices in the this that I'm like me honey. Do that is. It always comes down to texture. You know that's what moisture and accomplish the flavor if do barbecue right the flavors and the meat you don't need a bunch of fancy stuff on the outside we do we do. Franklin's Oh my Gosh I should say on podcast but The Michael Jackson's the half black half white S- something pepper makes and that's it right and It's such a big deal when you can especially being here. It's sort of beef. You know when you can appreciate the quality of beef so much that you want to keep spices and seasoning off of it. You really want to accentuate the meat. You WanNA focus on that. That's a big deal for me. It own any any cook. Any pit boss. And he chef that wants to focus on the raw materials versus dawn. A bunch of stop and methods on it. That's just so much passion right there as the real deal right. Yeah and and I think from my own experiments as well when you put something into a smoker. There's only so much of that. Can you even transfer through? Almost everything is just to become part of the bark may not really gonNA get the garlic flavor out of it and write it might have a subtle texture or something to it. But you really. It's just going to be dark and on the outside unless you start you know then you start talking about competition where they inject and some of that is just crazy Pastrami. That's not a bad idea. But when he like shelvin needles in a in a brisket and I feel like you're you're getting away from a spell again. I really think doing to protect. I'd say most of those texture little bit a little bit of slavery but it's really accentuate that texture. So you you have more than one restaurant in Guatemala. Only as well to to under under under my ownership and going to franchise going well so Franchiser. Trying to go international with the franchise. We're looking at El Salvador this year. I'm going to Columbia this year in Mexico maybe Honduras maybe chilly We'll get some interesting interesting plans for the future. Actually what we're going right now is our beef jerky is a new beef jerky chip Baghdad tonight. Holly Basher each of that Jerky scale. I'll tell you Turkey. I mean I almost bought some. We were at the market earlier when I was like a hint by any I bought like a pastry. Because I knew he wouldn't pay any salad for a week planning on coming here in new Albany Meet this time. We had a bunch of steak last night. And they're like. Can we get you anything else? It was like a little. Sal would be nice the air as budgie ahead of Broccoli Broccoli. Also obviously you have a great brand certified as beef supplying you is it. Is it hard as someone cooking textile to to get other things or are you pretty? Well supplied down there as far as an ingredients meets. It's been super extremely difficult. It is not easy doing overdoing. It is not easy and I wish more people would understand that they don't it's okay. Tell them blame him. It is not easy doing what we do down. Guatemala a lot of people have this weird understanding of where Guatemala is what it is It's just south of Mexico right. It's between Mexico and Honduras Police it's a beautiful country miner. Mine origin which about water mal APP which is also the worst thing for barbecue. Restaurant is it's very culture rich. You've got a lot of indigenous cultures still living in the same way that they've lived for the past few hundred years. You know not much change now. Maybe they got a cell phone so you can imagine a country of like seventeen million people you know. Millions millions sixteen point. Nine million. People are just not interested in barbecue. Yeah so we've been real really Good at targeting are very specific market. We have three hundred thousand people in the country that we target too. And we're very lucky that the that the people that we do have become loyal we own about eighty five ninety five percent of the market for Barbecue. we've taken some steps to register the brand bbq to make sure that we own space and They were just waiting for the day that we central market but yet getting materials We don't get backs paper Everybody should have waxed paper right. We'll get it. We'll get what your paper down there. It's really us We were cooking and aluminum wrapping up. An aluminum still textile. Still Take the style in the right part of Texas Nagri. I agree yeah But Yeah so. There's just you know we we didn't originally get brisket down there for a long time and Luckily she came down and Endless brisket and we started bouncing and from then on with beautiful beautiful piece of me. We'll have been learning a lot about never example. Heb In Texas doesn't necessarily have a brisket from Cab but in Mexico by all the beef at HP in Mexico it's gap so it's It's it's pretty interesting to seek out of the ways things work Did you have a challenge? You know I. I've interviewed People California In New York at in places where they don't get you know a tray they don't understand like eating off the paper though. Did you have to kind of adapt to what people expected of you? I'm sure that I cook people like what are you doing this. Oh definitely definitely so. Educating the market is one of the things that we were doing a lot of in the beginning and we pretty much stopped right Understanding how marketing works in Barbecue. You know you just. It's best to just go after Let let your clients tell the story to their friends right. So what we focus on as we focus on was called. Oto Online to offline so we create the story that people tell other people so when they come into a restaurant and they have an experience you know for example or waiter would go to a table and go. Hey look the puppies barbecue vespers. Getting one Ma right and then that person leaves or store and they go and they sell. Their friend is an advocate..

Way South of our border Actually just south of Mexico and he's a really interesting due to real business man. We talked a lot about the business marketing and a lot of the things that I'm doing the show but for now enjoy this episode Lake Thurgood of Poppies Barbecue. Thank you for watching the best barbecue show. I'm in Ohio hanging out at certified. Ing IS BEEF Across from me is Blake Thurgood of poppies barbecue In Antigua Guatemala. A guy who has spent a Lotta time in Texas and the rest of the world cooking barbecue and hasn't been interesting stories so they get started heading home. Blake doing great man doing great to be here morning. Corpus Christi Texas. Okay yeah well Went to high school in southwest Houston Sugar Land Higher and then got to Austin Texas college so you went to. Ut Horns the truth I noticed on my way out of town that there was a lot of burnt orange on the plane. This is a plane leaving Texas. Yes Did you get into barbecue when you're not or where did that Kinda now? Man I am? I had a business. Austin added solar panels and We have these like longterm projections. You know like years return on investments kind of thing and I just tired of that so when trip around the world water Guatemala was my first stop and was GONNA stay couple months and ended up Santa couple years. went back to ut for quick business degree in in Just before I left Guatemala. Though that first time I met a girl just absolutely fell in love with her and that was about eight years ago nine years ago now and We've been married for years. Now get two year old in Guatemala and I figured if I was GonNa say what am I gonNa do something. I wanted to get out of that kind of corporate world that Kinda like longterm projections so restaurants Z. But a hundred bucks at the beginning of the day. Get out at the end of the day. That's what I wanted. I wanted to experience that the cash flow and did you. Did you go there with any thoughts of barbecue or are you? Just you're in love and you just wanted to hang out. Just wanted to say there and I was trying to figure out what industry to get into and Had some engineering background. And I'll tell you what happened. Man was my my wife. Came Up to Austin. Visit me girlfriend at the time. Came Dawson to visit me and we went to. We went to ratings to the Convention Center Armor Ironworks. We went to ironworks and she was at a beautiful white dresses. I barbecue experience and we got the dry rub ribs because she had her white dress on and she whole rack in just kept eating a one c absolutely loved it so it was her. I guess her original idea for me to start cooking barbecue. I did some samples. They were horrible but Time went on. I realized I was GONNA open up a restaurant. I was committed so I started caught up in e mailing and messaging all the barbecue. Pit Bosses in Austin. They all took miniter wing and shouldn't have to do right on. I think I think part of anyone's barbecue journey starts with terrible barbecue. Imagine it's not easy to do. Well an I. I started in the northeast so I was doing You know soaked wood chips and things that I know are terrible rate but with chips you know stuff I read on the internet or whatever I didn't know direction because I was in upstate New York and there's not no one knows how to barbecue up there and I can imagine my gas and it's cold so you can't even do it year round gaining. Yeah I mean. I am not afraid of the cold that I was. I was happy to come back here because I haven't been in this kind of winter in a few years. Okay okay. I'm not a wimp yet. I'm afraid the Texas Miss Off Dinner. Yeah you know after being Texas for so long. I'm kind of enjoying the cold. Somebody told me recently that ever which out because after a couple of days of being cold you just hated but right now. Joins Nice appears crisp. It's crispy exactly so new. York is like Oh yeah I mean it's where I grew up as literally straight east from here so it's almost the same climate? We got a lot more snow. 'cause we're on the other side of the lakes in the Gulfstream just pushes all precipitation onto us. Floors is crazy. I mean this kind of walking into the snap and you barbecue. Yeah I mean you just dig a hole and put the depite I mean. You're digging out everything to dig out your car. We build Igloos every winter like it was literally sees and the F. Mean Barbecue is such a labour-intensive yet to be over it all the time you have a we did. I was doing like indirect on a web early and I was doing long snow or anything. I didn't even really get you know if you try to find a brisket nine you can but back in the day. If you went to get a risky do you get a flat and get a piece of point you get chance but you never got the whole packer. Okay interested in New York New York. Okay now you're in Texas and now you can't find those anywhere he's just cut it up yourself okay. But at this point I was watching a recipe on Youtube and I watched the guy caught the point like like probably eight inches off the point and it was almost like I heard a little bit like why are you cutting brisket. He's home right but obviously you can't these making the soupy became put a whole brisket. Agai. Yeah it was just funny. 'cause I was like a while then extra heard me a little bit to watch as your education in meet now is kind of expanded to this. Podcast it's to the point now where I I like cringe when I watched people that don't know how to term brisket right. Oh Yeah and they just cut a big chunk off you know. What did you do a good deal? Vian yeah but so you traveled so Guatemalan guessing has pretty nice climate year round Hoya. Oh Yeah is it in the tropics. Now good question No no no it's close. It's not far from the equator. So you get a pretty good. No QUICK GOES TO SOUTH AMERICA. So were were pretty Through Ecuador right so were north of that so or were in technically tropics. I Guess Yeah the Tropics. Yeah which just means it. It rains half the year and so that means does that. Put a challenge to your cooking. Her it does. Actually we have three components that we monitor during the rainy season. Because it's a big deal. The first is obviously the moisture in the wood Africa. Too much motion. Avoid Neo WE'RE GONNA END UP ST MONOP- AMMO pressure into the chamber. Which you monitor the pressure. Close it it's another thing that we do is monitor the pressure chamber pretty closely and then the third is our our cool down in the rainy season era. You know we we try to slow down or cool down as much as possible that makes spongy texture inside of the meat when you have a good brisket or good rid. That's just really spongy. In the middle like a really nice loose one genus includes like air pockets. No it's the cooldown so the slower you can cool it down and we literally cool fifteen degrees over two hours. You know so the slower that you can monitor that cool down and when it's raining outside the humidity the humidity's actually grabbing the heat and pulling away so the more humid it is the faster were cooling things down so we gotta make sure we monitor. That will be better in the rainy season. Now you say the pressure on the chamber view of like what kind of cooker you gone. So I've got a reversal set Got Three of them. And then I've got a pit smoker in my principal restaurant and then the other restaurants I've made nine smokers in total and everyone of those different. But they're all based on the reverse low offset. This is a design that originally gotten from Wayne Miller. He's got a Not a reverse flow off side and he was vague ing me to only rivers law said He said that his gone a lot more maintenance. He's got a direct flow Rick Smoker which is beautiful and has been using it for years But he really stressed the danger.
