Dennis Talks to Chris Rufo, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute

"A Chris rufo. Welcome back to my show. It's great to be with you. Where do you live, by the way? Yeah, I have outside of Seattle, Washington, and a small town on the kitsap Peninsula. A bit far away from Florida, but I found myself in the last few years. Spending a lot of time in the sunshine state and really having a huge admiration for what governor desantis has been doing there. Listen, Washington state to Florida is a serious trip. I salute you. In the last two weeks, you may be the only person working full-time in Florida who's living. You know, pilots do that. Where were you based Denver, you know, where you fly out of Laguardia. Okay, but you really got it bad or fascinating. All right, so let's explain everything. This is beyond interesting. It's equally important. So he contacted you, governor desantis to do what. Yeah, I've been working with the governor and his team on critical race theory on gender ideology in schools. I helped with the stop woke act and attended a number of events with him, including the bill signing for the legislation. And then I got a call last month from one of the governor's team. And he said, hey, look, we're going to overturn, we're going to take over the whole board of new college of Florida, which is Florida's smallest public university. It has about 700 students. It's notoriously kind of left wing and progressive. There are some located in Florida. It's in Sarasota, so it's on the gulf side of Florida. Of the state. And it's actually been really failing. It actually has the lowest scores on all the performance metrics. For the Florida high dropout rates, can't recruit enough students, huge problems for years. And the situation that they describe was this, the legislature is ready to actually just dissolve the university entirely. They're so frustrated at the university has been sailing for so long. They are ready to actually shut it down. But the governor had a different idea. He said, rather than shutting it down, why don't we do an experiment? We're going to get a new majority of board members that are kind of solid conservatives, intellectuals, from hillsdale, from other institutions, and we'll take over the board and we'll perform it from the top down. And so I said, great, well, how would you like me to help? And he said, we want you to be on the board, which is a bit surprising at first. But it's turned out to be really, I think, just a great experiment. And it really is the future of saying, hey, look, when conservative win elections, when they get to a point people to board the boards of trustees at that public universities, those people should actually take action. They should actually start doing something so that the public institutions start reflecting the values of the public.

Chris Reed Shares His Predictions About Ron DeSantis for 2023

"That there was going to be an oil spill, it sounds like in the Florida golf or something like that, that would dramatically affect Florida beaches and would negatively impact desantis as a governor in some ways. So yes, let me give you the background on this. In June of 2021, this is documented. We have proof of this. I prophesied of hurricane that would hit the West Coast of Florida that would be aimed at Tampa. That happened in September and October, hurricane Ian, I was shown that was like a second test. The first test for desantis governor was COVID. He passed. It's still the freest state in the union. The second test was the hurricane response to hurricane Ian. He passed. He did a great job. I believe there's going to be a third test and this is what I heard. A third test for desantis and it was going to be something to do the environmentalist agenda would hijack this and to try to hurt him an oil spill of in Florida. It was either Florida or the Gulf Coast or I can't even say for sure it wasn't even on the beaches there where South Carolina, Georgia and Florida on that side, but I know it was a Florida beach or close to a Florida beach and oily beaches and this would be a third test that he would be given and it would determine how to he would be promoted to national leadership.

Catholic immigrant workers in Qatar find a Christmas oasis

"Catholic immigrant workers in Qatar find a Christmas oasis. As the World Cup enters its final weekend in Qatar, thousands of Catholic expatriate workers in the Muslim majority country, prepare to celebrate Christmas. Their festivities are confined to an isolated religious complex called church city, ten miles south of Doha. Christmas is one of the most important festivities for Christians all over the world, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, but in Qatar, a Muslim majority country, it celebrated in private to respect local rules. We have celebration is different in gulf countries. Father Albert, a Catholic priest from India, says his congregation has had to adjust to their circumstances. Religion and the people belong to other religion also. So here we don't go. But inside the campus, we have such a celebration. The Carroll singing, even the other day, we had a lighting of the Christmas tree. There was a karo singing. The church says about 250,000 foreign Catholics live and work in Qatar. For those like sajni Fernando, the Christmas celebrations remind them of home. The same thing like Christmas cake and then going to church and preparing the children, buying new clothes. It's a same thing. Same thing what we do back home. We do it here. Church city is a big compound on government owned land that houses several Christian denominations. It looks nondescript from the outside, with no crosses on its exterior. To reach the church, parishioners need to cross a police checkpoint with metal detectors. Father Albert says they never had difficulty with the local authorities, who offered them protection inside the compound. When we have the Christmas celebrations of entire complexity of people, so of course it is we needed some kind of protections where another place is we don't get such a protection, but here we get the protection.

US storm brings tornadoes, blizzard-like conditions; 2 dead

"A massive storm system is marching across the U.S. generating severe weather and tornadoes, the same powerful storm that dumped several feet of snow in the California sierras spawned destructive tornadoes that wrecked buildings in parts of Oklahoma and Texas, dozens of buildings were damaged and injuries were reported in the suburbs north of Dallas, in Louisiana, two deaths were reported. I've seen several tornadoes. This was the worst tornado that I've worked. Cattle Paris sheriff Steve crater spoke to KSL and Keith Bill Louisiana. The few houses that are in there totally destroyed gone. Searchers found the bodies of a mother and son amid the debris. A couple of feet of snow will fall over the dakotas and the storm spawned blizzard warnings from the northern high plains to the Great Lakes, the system is expected to hobble the upper Midwest and will move into the northeast and central Appalachian Mountains later today.

"gulf " Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves

"At the importance of the Gulf of Mexico in the development of the United States with Jack E Davis. Jack's the author of a book called the gulf. Jack also writes about the improbable journey of America's iconic bird in his book the bald eagle. We have links to his work at Rick Steves dot com slash radio. So Jack you mentioned tourism and development and so on, it's so easy for people to just like moving in and looking for a nice place to get some sunshine to think of the coastal marshes as a wasteland and think of it as just cheap real estate where they can put up a condo and make some money. But that's a very costly mistake in the long term when you think of the fragile echo balance there. What lessons should we learn and what appreciation should we take with us to the coast when we want to make that our retirement community? Yeah, there are a couple of important, really important lessons historically, yes, coastal marshes were regarded as wastelands. And those coastal marshes are really estering environments, very important to people and commercial fishing. So they're far from preparation. But also in destroying those marshlands and often putting up concrete seawalls, they were also putting themselves in jeopardy. There's nothing better as a storm buffer than a living shoreline, whether it's a coastal marsh or sea grass beds or mangrove forests or oyster bar and again, not only are they habitat and nurseries for marine life, but they are also fantastic carbon sinks. And nestorian environment absorbs more carbon than a four stars. And we're in the age of sea level rise and climate change. In truly, our best defense against sea level rise is not only to stop building on the coast, but we should be developing living shorelines, restoring them. You know, I would think political leadership is really important in the 5 Gulf states for the long term livability of that area. It's really up to the electorate to choose and the choice is kind of simple. Short term easy money versus long-term sustainability. I agree to it seems like an obvious choice, long-term sustainability. I think that more and more elected officials are beginning to recognize the importance of restoring the estuarine environment and the living shoreline. And ratcheting back on development on the coast. Also, the electorate really deserves to be educated sometimes they're told that concrete seawalls are the way to take care of things and it really is not. It's an easy fix, or it seems like it's an easy fix, but concrete seawalls actually add to shoreline erosion. They don't prevent it. Well, you're a professor and you teach issues of sustainability and you're right there in the middle of it, a mantra for me is the best way to control nature is to obey her. It seems like nature is teaching that again and again to us. It is, and we need to heed those lessons, don't we? Unfortunately, we don't. I mean, one thing that we're victims of on the Gulf Coast and particularly in Florida is historical amnesia. We'll have a devastating hurricane and it will do tremendous damage. But 5 years later, we will forget about that. And we will repeat our mistakes. And it's not just Florida. It's also the federal government. I mean, a fema allows us to rebuild in harm's way. And often doesn't allow us when we decide we get smart and say, oh, we shouldn't be rebuilding here. We should build somewhere else smarter. But fema doesn't always support that. Obvious lessons from that natural disaster that kind of dissolved like a sand castle when the tide comes in. Jack E Davis is joining us from our affiliate W UFT at the university of Florida, where he teaches history and sustainability studies. He's the author of the gulf, the making of an American sea. Jack's also edited a recent anthology of writers inspired by Florida's nature called the wilder heart of Florida. You can listen to his earlier interview with us about his latest book the bald eagle. It's in our show archives at Rick Steves dot com slash radio. Hey Jack, let's finish on a very positive note, I'm a big fan of the value of tourism to help open people's eyes to things and appreciate things that they might not otherwise appreciate. As a tourist, as a traveler, where can I go? Where can our readers go to be inspired by mangrove forests and marshlands and Osprey nests and otters and blue crabs and oyster beds? I mean, can I find that Paradise? You sure can and thank you for that question because I'm really going to enjoy responding to it. There's so many wonderful places one is annabelle island and the ding darling national wildlife refuge. Great place to go for birding in the winter times. And sanibel has done a wonderful job of protecting the native flora. Another one of my favorite places is padre island national seashore in Texas. And I like to say, if you go to padre island national seashore, and you're not moved, then you better check your pulse because it's just this otherworldly place. The gulf islands national seashore along the northern gulf and Mississippi and Florida, a wonderful place. And one of my absolutely favorite places, Rick on the gulf is the Walter Anderson Museum of Art in ocean springs Mississippi, Walter Anderson. I'll refer to him in my book as the painter laureate of the Gulf of Mexico. He painted almost exclusively gulf nature in the early in the mid 20th century. This museum, when you walk into this museum, you're walking into this wonderful world of Walter Anderson. Very impactful for me was Dan morrow Lindbergh, who wrote her beautiful book about collecting seashells on the Gulf Coast. And I'd like to thank Anne morrow Lindbergh could enjoy a picnic on the beach and paw through those seashells and feel good about how the gulf and the people who appreciate it are working together. Yes, I agree, and she liked to go to captiva island in Southwest Florida. Those many decades ago. A gift from the sea, the gulf can be our gift from the sea. This is a travel with Rick Steves. We've been talking with Jack E Davis and his book is the gulf, the making of an American sea. Jack congratulations on the Pulitzer Prize acknowledging what an important book this is and how well written it is, and thanks so much for joining us and helping us better appreciate our American sea. My pleasure, thanks for having me, Rick. I am really proud of the work my TV production team is done in creating a miniseries called Rick Steves art of Europe. We'll consider some of the sites of great art and architecture that I think you'll treasure when you get to visit Europe yourself. That's next on travel with Rick Steves. For a traveler, art is really a key to connecting with our past. And when you appreciate art, I think you have a huge advantage in the quest to have both a fun trip and a trip that can be life-changing. So right now, I'm just sort of in a mood to celebrate art of just finished a two year long project producing a 6 hour mini series for public television called Rick Steves art of Europe, and for decades, when I have

"gulf " Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves

"A book. This is travel with Rick Steves. We've been talking with Peter finds. Kind of for the love of guidebooks. Peter for 25 years was a publisher at time out, lately he's moved beyond publishing and he's just writing books that fit his passions. He's written a book called a thing of beauty, travels in mythical and modern Greece and he's written a book called footnotes, a journey around Britain in the company of great writers. Peter, a lot of people say, oh guidebooks are dying out. You know, you can get all that information with the crowdsourcing sites and so on. And a whole generation of people, I think, are getting up on Yelp or TripAdvisor or whatever and finding out where to eat when they're in Paris. What's your take on the trajectory of guidebooks and how people in the future will get information for their travels. I still love the feel and smell of print have still love and have booked an exist of you probably want to invent it. It's very portable. You can flick through it. You can find what you want very easily. It's a lovely thing, there are generations of people who still want to take books with them. And I don't think the smartphone has superseded that yet, although obviously the market has shrunk enormously in time at a not doing their guide so much any more and others aren't. So the market is shrunk, but there's still always lots of people who love the book, and there are reasons for that because it's extremely, you know, it's cheap technology. And it's extremely useful. To me a big challenge for travelers is, in the old days, it was there was not enough information. We just need information. Now there's a glut of information and you really need to have that information curated when so much of it is crowdsourcing stuff and people who have been to Paris once in their life feel like they know where the best little coffee shop is. Yes, I think that's what you're looking for as someone you trust. It's bewildering the amount of information out there, and some of it does seem to work, you know, if enough people are saying enough things about this particular hotel or bar, then you can sort of lean the truth about the thing, but at the same time, as you say, there are voices that you trust who are curating the information and presenting it away that you the reader have grown to appreciate. People do tend to gravitate time and again to the brands or the people that they know and they've grown up with. And each guide book has a personality, your timeout books had a personality for some people it was just, it was just too RD and was too trendy and it was too young, other guidebooks are for people who want to stay out late and gambling drink. Another guidebook served for people who just love art. So it's not a qualitative thing. It's just, I think, as a smart traveler, you got to find the right information that fits your travel dreams. I totally agree, and also it's interesting that when a travel publisher tries to please all of those different segments, they tend to fail. Once you've found what you do well, then you want to keep on doing it well. And then you will endure if we hope. Peter, it's been so fun just to compare notes as fellow travel writers, you know, for a long time, I've said if you want to travel smart, you can. You just got to equip yourself with good information and expect it to work. What's your advice for somebody that wants to, you know, the trip is a big deal. They've waited, they saved, now they're going to take this trip that they've always wanted to go. And really, the quality of that experience is really up to them. What's your advice for getting the most out of the information and having the best trip? Oh, enjoy your planning, I think that's the main thing to take on board because before you go, there's so much you can do online and thinking about where you're going to first spend your time, but then find your preferred guidebook, whoever that might be and take that with you and enjoy it and be prepared for the unexpected, you know, don't try and plan every last minute of your trip, be ready for things to happen to you. I guess at any good guidebook writer would say, hey, when serendipity presents itself, but the guidebook now and run with it. Absolutely. Once you're in the right bar or the right restaurant and someone comes up to you and say, hey, we're all going here next. This is going to be amazing. And I think you should probably plunge right in. You don't get out your guidebook and think, is that a good bar? No, you could read about it in the guide, but when you're in the bar and think whether you got this wrong, you've got this right. Thank you. Good advice. Peter finds thanks so much. And happy travels. Thank you very much. Finding the real beauty of the Gulf of Mexico, that's next on travel with Rick Steves. You can think of the Gulf of Mexico as the American sea. The source of beauty and food, one that moderates the climate, removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and provides a rich harvest. Jack E Davis wrote an environmental history of earth's tenth largest body of water that won the Pulitzer Prize for history in 2018. His book is called the gulf, the making of an American sea. Jack's with us now on travel with Rick Steves to tell us about the coastline that Americans often overlook, and sometimes neglect. Jack, thanks so much for joining us. It's nice to chat with you again, Rick. Jack, you won a Pulitzer Prize for a book about the Gulf of Mexico. What does that really mean when you're recognized and honored this way? Is it a matter of how important the topic is, how deep you got into it, how artfully it was written, what helps a teacher like you when a Pulitzer Prize. I think you identified all those qualities that the judges are looking for in a Pulitzer Prize winner. And I had no expectation of winning the Pulitzer Prize and was shocked beyond belief. For me, the prize is really for the Gulf of Mexico. And it's more about the gulf than it is about me. Well, I was going to say, obviously, it's an honor for you and it's a feather in your cap is a great writer, but it's also quite an honor for the Gulf of Mexico to be thought of as a worthwhile recipient of thoughtful coverage. And it's an important body of water that's off. As you mentioned in the book, it is so often underappreciated and overlooked. Now you grew up in Tampa Bay, witnessing the ebb and flow of life as you grew up and the impact of the gulf and so on, how did your youth in Tampa Bay prime you to write this groundbreaking book? Yeah, that's exactly right. It did prime me. I have this lifelong intimate relationship with the Gulf of Mexico. And when I realized that nobody had written a history and an environmental history of the Gulf of Mexico, I saw a need there and knowing the gulf intimately I knew the gulf was more than just this oil supply or this hurricane alley as it is often portrayed, I wanted readers to know the true gulf to know it's true identity. You wrote about the gulf, the gulf is at the American sea what happens to it happens to us. Tell us what is so impactful about the gulf that Americans should understand even if they don't live on its coast. Yeah, the gulf of Mexico is truly American sea and I wanted readers to know that Americans all Americans are connected to the Gulf of Mexico, both historically and ecologically. Whether they've even seen the Gulf of Mexico, more than 60% of the lower 48 states and part of Canada drain into rivers that flow to the Gulf of Mexico, it's one of our most productive commercial fishing areas in the United States. It's our most popular saltwater fishing hole. And of course, it's a place where millions of people come every year to enjoy the beach and as I say, the best sunsets in the world. You know, when you mentioned 60% of the lower 48 and some of Canada drains into the gulf, I would imagine that's all about the Mississippi River and the delta by New Orleans, right? So if you think about that bottleneck there, everything that comes in, everything that goes out, right there, through that very critical little spot of the Gulf Coast. That's the most critical spot,

Kathleen Madigan on Why People Have a Personal Connection to Trump

"That's an interesting sociological thing 'cause you play all over the country. What is it? Do you think? What is the personal connection to Donald Trump? I don't know. I don't know why, like one lady in Florida. She was kind of a drunk grandma. You stood up in a balcony and a theater somewhere on the gulf side of Florida and said, Kathleen, I love you and I love Sarah Palin. Don't make fun of her. I had not said a word except Sarah Palin, comma. Now if the lady would have listened, my joke was really about the gist of it is there's no people in Alaska to have more respect for you if you were the game warden than I would if you said you were the governor because there's a lot. It's a lot more dangerous if you're okay. It's a stupid joke. It's silly innocuous. But that lady was so upset because she like, I don't know. I'm like, you can't love me and her. And you're at my show, so I'd pick me if I were you. Which one is it? I don't know what the Trump thing you could do any other Republican, any other Democrat and people do not lose their minds. There's something about I know this is going to sound snotty coastal liberal elite, but an education problem where they're just like, oh, I want people that sound dumb, like me. I just can't. I don't understand what the connection is. I it could go back to the, you know, George Bush, people are like, I'd like to have a beer with him. Right. Well, right. You might want to have a beer with me, but I shouldn't be running anything. I mean, just because I seem fun, which I am. You are that doesn't mean I'm qualified to work at NASA. I don't understand that leap. When people say, I think George Bush seemed fun too. The younger one to have a beer with after golf with a country club. I get it. Right. But what is that next level where I defend him like I would, my brother. It's weird.

"In the straw polls or whatever term would be used in the polling in Iowa and other states desantis is more favored than president Trump. I beg Trump supporters to understand that any Republican is better than any Democrat. That the gulf is unbridgeable. That's it. That's all I'm asking, I'm asking of people, I was a passionate defender of the president, I claim to this day, I said to his face at Mar-a-Lago a few months ago, thought he was the finest president in Abraham Lincoln. Kink a more supportive than that. But my bigger agenda than Donald Trump is defeating the Democratic Party, which is now a left wing party for the first time in American history. It was largely liberal. It is now left, and the left destroys everything it touches.

The Gulf Between Left and Right

"This is truly fascinating. The Round Rock independent school district school board outside of Austin, Texas. Elected Esteban zarate to win a seat on the Round Rock school board. Said parents in his community were interested in fostering equity for students and promoting safety in the pandemic. Let's take the safety in the pandemic part now. So liberal parents in Austin are at peace indeed beyond that peace their advocate of shutting down schools during COVID. No matter how much damage was done to kids, not attending school for nearly two years, not seeing faces for nearly two years because of the idiotic counterproductive destructive, un science based idea of masking kids, despite all that, therefore it. Now, does this help explain the, what I call and half for years, the unbridgeable gulf between left and right? You're a parent who thinks that it was a good idea to deprive your child of school for two years. You have to be a liberal or a leftist to believe that. But in this case, I think liberals and leftists think identically, in most cases, they don't.

What Drives Steve Bannon to Keep Fighting?

"Steve, what keeps, you know, what drives you to keep going. You've been attacked from every possible direction from the Mueller investigation to the Senate intelligence committee to the state of New York to the Department of Justice. And you just keep fighting and you're focused solely on election day as the Democrats Judgment Day. You know, people complain all the time. We Charlie things are so tough. And you never let that get to you. Talk about that, Steve. I find that super interesting and important for our audience to learn. Charlie, you know, and you've met my daughter, you know, volunteered and served in the navy as a naval officer to destroy her in the western Pacific and the Persian Gulf my daughter went to West Point, served in Iraq with a 101st airborne. What keeps me going is this country. And you know, I serve this country in a formal capacity at the early stages of my career in my early 20s and after I was fortunate enough to make some money. I've decided to serve my country ever since I really met Andrew breitbart right after the financial collapse. I met Andrew a couple of times. We were around the financial collapse of 2008. And the reason I did it, I made a movie then called generation zero. It was about Gen Z is about how generation zero is going to get wiped out. What keeps me motivated, quite frankly, is you pass the people at turning point. I see this generation coming up and we have an obligation to bequeath this generation, the same constitutional republic with the same basic economic opportunities that were bequeathed to us. I've had a blessed life. I had, you know, my dad didn't make a lot of money, but we had a family of 5 and my mom was a homemaker. It was kind of, I looked back at it, it was absolutely golden childhood. I had every break in the world, and it was just terrific. And we want to provide that and make sure that I'm part of that generation that hands that off. And so what does it that we work 7 days a week here at the war room? 18, 20 hours a day is simply that. We owe our previous generations to bequeath the you guys, the up and coming next generation, really the people under 40, the same country we had. And we're in a fight for that.

Benjamin Netanyahu: The 'Lousy' Iran Nuclear Deal

"You have this number one threat which is Iran You talk about this in your book BB my story Right We now have another president in the United States who seems to be trying to appease Iran He came to the United States to fight Barack Obama's position on appeasing Iran Where do things stand now Well I think that what has I think the American plan was to sign this very bad deal that president Trump happily left And he applied crippling sanctions and I think posed also a credible military threat to Iran which is the only way you stop these nuclear rogue regimes that threaten America Remember Iran chants death to Israel death to America but Israel as they call it is the small Satan and you are the great city So if Iran would have nuclear tipped missiles that could reach any American city this would change history And that's why I came under a previous president president Obama to the U.S. Congress to a joint session of Congress and I spoke out firmly against this agreement and this was in 2015 And two things happened One is that the Arab countries especially in the gulf took note and they said if you're willing to stand up to the wrong policy that threatens us as well because Iran threatens them too then we'd like to meet with you And that really led to what finally blossomed into the historic Abraham accords So that was one thing The second thing that happened was that a year later the American presidency changed hands And president Trump agreed with me that this was a bad deal that allows you to deal as I quote him in my book That he's ever seen And he agreed with me that it's important to leave this agreement That unfortunately I think has been changed but

"By one account, there was cotton alone worth £3.5 million. That was about $15 million or what the United States had recently paid France for the entire Louisiana territory. It was a veritable treasure right for the picking. It was kind of like snatch and grab, right? These guys that smashed through a window and grab a bunch of jewelry and run off. I mean, the British, if nothing else, they could get this cotton, haul it off and sell it for $15 million. That's pretty good. Not bad for a day's work. All right, so Jackson arrives in New Orleans and he finds the city to be poorly prepared for an attack. While in charge of the city, our old buddy James Wilkinson, the greatest shaking my best right now. I know it's make it go back in time and punch him in the face. One of the worst scoundrels at all of American history. He had wasted the public funds under his control when he was in charge of New Orleans. In addition, the French and Spanish residents of the city who made up the majority of its population did not want to serve in the militia. Also, there was an increasing lack of cash in the city. So thank you, Wilkinson, for, well, legacy of this extremely lousy leadership. But Jackson's arrival made a huge difference. He started by serving the area and then he ordered all the water approaches from the gulf, blocked and he established batteries at key locations around the city. He also set up a highly effective intelligence system to warn of any approach by the British. And then he issued a proclamation demanding that everyone in the city helped with constructing the defenses. He said this, quote, those who are not with us are against us and will be dealt with accordingly. Again, classic Jackson. Yeah. Do what I say or else. I'm going to hurt you. What resident of the city wrote this, quote, general Jackson electrified all hearts, electrified that can mean good and bad, right? Yeah, for sure. I'm thinking electricity in the sense to be energized people are shocked them or through the toaster in the bath. Exactly. That's a good one. All right, so Louisiana governor William claiborne called out the militia. And soon, troops steamed into the city. Streamed into the city. Or they might have steamed as well, who knows? Jackson appealed to free black men to enlist in the regular army. And he also accepted the services of a unit of black volunteers, mostly from Santo Domingo, despite the objections of claiborne. You know, Jackson Jackson gets criticized a lot for being racist and for owning slaves. And that's all true, but here he is recruiting black men into the army that they had not been allowed to serve in the U.S. Army, but again, Jackson doesn't care about the rules. He just wants to win.

"Chesapeake region, and now, as I said, they were planning a tax on several locations along the American Gulf Coast. The Gulf Coast was especially attractive due to the low numbers of white Americans living in the region and the presence of black Americans, both slave and free, as well as Native Americans, whom the British hoped might join them in fighting the white Americans. There were also 800 to a thousand pirates who lived on grand terror island in southern Louisiana, and they had been in trouble with the U.S. government. There had been conflict between them and the U.S. Military. So the British were hoping they could kind of pick off some of these folks. The African Americans, the Native Americans, the pirate Americans, you know? Maybe they can get some of those to come over to their side and really cause trouble for the white Americans. Now, New Orleans was the most attractive target for an attack. It had 20,000 residents and it was the largest city west of the Appalachian Mountains. It was also the most important commercial city in the west. It had millions of dollars of goods stuck in the port. Some of these were literally just lying out on the docks. Because of the blockade. And taking this stuff would deprive much of the American southwest of communication with the rest of the nation and the world. So to prepare for the upcoming expedition against the Gulf Coast, admiral Cochrane, remember he had taken over as the British commander of the Atlantic fleet. He sent a shipment of arms to Indians in the apa, Apollo chicola river. Sorry if I messed it up and Spanish Florida, along with an agent to train them to use a bayonet. Says this, quote, fortunately for the United States, Britain's plan to attack along the gulf was one of the worst kept secrets of the war. And so it's not going to be like surprise. You know, the Americans aren't just going to be born. Oh man, it didn't see that coming where'd they come from? Britain was not keeping it secret at all. So the Americans are going to have a little time to be prepared. For my money, the British just, they might be getting too cocky based on at this point, but they had some easy wins up in the Chesapeake region. And now for some reason they're hitting in New Orleans and it just doesn't, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Well, again, they had designs on the Mississippi River. They were hoping to maybe snag New Orleans, maybe even keep it. But yeah, you're right. They're still pretty cocky. It's kind of like a pitcher who looks at the batter and says, hey man, fastball down the middle. You ready? Yeah, I mean, it really is. But they are. They're going to bring it. We're coming. And, you know, you better get ready because we're going to come punish you guys. We're going to come wipe you out. There's still that sense of pride in the fact that the British Army was professional army. They mixed it up with Napoleon, and they'd beaten him.

"His new book is about a conflict on the Texas Gulf Coast in the early 1980s between white fishermen and Vietnam War refugees who resettled in the area and were also buying boats and trawling for shrimp. Locals blamed the Vietnamese for declining catches even though industrial pollution and oil spills in the bays were degrading the aquatic environment. The Ku Klux Klan got involved in efforts to drive out the newcomers. There were arsons, violent clashes at a federal lawsuit filed to prohibit the Klan at its allies from intimidating the Vietnamese. Kirk Wallace Johnson's book is the fisherman and the dragon. So we've been talking about this conflict in this little town of seadrift, which led to this killing and this verdict and the Ku Klux Klan presence. A similar conflict erupted, I guess what in the town of seabrook, which is maybe 80 files north on a different day. There were tensions. There was a cross burning. There was a Klan rally and a leader of the Vietnamese community emerged there. He was a former colonel in the South Vietnamese army. Tell us just a little bit about him and his role as this conflict flared there. Yeah, colonel Nam van, he's an amazing guy, but he had 22 years of combat before he left as Saigon was falling he was essentially pulled on to a boat by his family members and they left. And a few years after arriving to the states, he bought himself a fishing boat and a fish house in this little town of seabrook, which is different than sea drift, but it's un Galveston bay. And he was really hoping for a simpler life he didn't know anything really about this conflict between the Klan and the other Vietnamese shrimpers. He just wanted some peace and quiet. But because of his stature within this community, as soon as he moved there, other Vietnamese started approaching him with problems. Telling him about how they were being harassed out on the water Vietnamese were having guns pointed at them, they were getting death threats. They were getting harassed out in the base and so colonel Nam formed something called the Vietnamese fisherman's association, which was meant to sort of advocate for their interests just as another group had formed called the American fisherman's coalition, which was a group of white fishermen. And so he became the de facto leader of the Vietnamese. And as you said, I mean, this was a pressure cooker of a situation because there were a couple bad seasons of shrimping the whites were furious at the mere presence of the Vietnamese and their in their bay. And Louis beam the grand dragon of the Klan had learned through the sea drift experience that if he gets involved in this issue, he gets national press, which leads to new members which leads to more dos into his organization. And so Lewis beam actively involved himself and the Ku Klux Klan in this conflict, there was a massive clan rally in un Valentine's Day in 1981, a thousand people chanting white power as they torched an effigy of a Vietnamese boat.

"So this poem is from Richard Blanco's first book, a book also named after the same poem looking for the gulf motel, and I got the book a good few years ago and read through it and loved it. I brought it with me on a work trip where me and my colleague who was also a close friend were a way for a few nights. And the first night I had to go out to a meeting. And as I was leaving, I tasked my friend the book and said, I think you love this book. And when I came back from the meeting, after about an hour, my friend was sitting exactly where he'd been when I left, and his face was completely covered in tears, and he said to me, I have been reading this first poem, looking for the gulf motel, over and over and over for the last hour, and then he said, I think I know it off by heart now. And that friend is dead now, he died in the first year of COVID, and this poem a poem about remembering the past and a poem about knowing that there is death, and there is loss, and that somehow still remembering can be a sweet beauty, even if it's a sweet kind of pain. This poem from Richard Blanco has become a poem of my no two because it is a private memory that I share with a friend. And that's one of the things that a poem is yearning to do. I think a poem is always curious to know where will it land in the audience, where will it land in the readers, how will this poem acquire a new life in people who aren't going to remember the gulf motel, but who will remember the experience of loving this poem, the experience of sharing this poem, and this way a poem too is a dance between the writer between the art of poetry and then the people who read the poem and were brought in to all kinds of ways within which language.

The petr have no contact with any of the boys had since been diluted to him not setting foot in the sleeping quarters by many accounts this still meant petr would often see the boys even still having visitors in his house and maintaining his inner circle. Carl moore who we first heard at. The top of the episode would be next in line in a string of young men which pedder would manipulate and abuse. Carl says this first began in caravelle. Everything about the way i went through the program was different. I mean looking back to me. It was clear that i was selected to be something special hours. A scientist group in caravelle florida. Which was the first group down there. Most of what i remember about that was was pretty positive. We had a couple of group leaders. That were think they're really good. Guys they were the kind of people that it's like jeeze a growth and be like that guy. I ended up in rebel. And then i think some of the guys there thought it was funny. I haven't been through the you know. At some point. I ended up going back and forth bringing supplies down from douglasville kind of immediately. Set me apart from everyone else. Who couldn't go anywhere. Say karl doesn't have his knife religious but he can drive the trucks back and forth there that he had relationships with had a trailer on the south campus. Quite a privileged to get invited to go to the trailer. He had another guy who was who was living at his house then brought down there with him former patient. Couple other guys who were now. Third patients are not time but they'll were had been yes so that was the kind of a special thing to get invited to come to dinner in there. That was a good cook by the way there was where i had really my my first sexual experience with him. He was bigger gone. Trust and loyalty. The standard speech was something. Like i'm going to be your old elephant. He would say. I'm going to teach you the way you can only have one old elephant course. Everybody can find it in any expected that and it was clear that he would expect that. I think he probably even address it directly and say you know something like you can tell me everything or anything but you can't do that with everybody and we did. Carl says that this type of abuse was something that was felt out the not. All of the boys were subjected to but only the ones that were susceptible to. So here's the sleight of hand. Kind of happens with that. You're going to be open with me. You're gonna trust me absolutely and you're gonna do away with all the taboos and all this crap that you've been taught that makes you feel so bad and then i put my hands on you and say how's that feel say will you don't say it feels weird. I some some guys would him out. He would know who those guys for is just like what we learn on the siren getty in africa when the tigers the lions are approaching a herd of animals. They look for the week ones. That are that edge of the herd and they try to pick them off my name. Is chris nurlan. And i am the executive director at the national children's advocacy center. We were actually the first child advocacy center in the world at children's advocacy centers. What we do is coordinate. The multi disciplinary response to child abuse our communities and this model includes partnerships and collaborations with law enforcement job protective services medical providers mental health professionals prosecutors victim advocates. So all of us working in a coordinated manner. What's really insidious in. This is the fact that in child sexual abuse in many situations the child ends up being sexually abused by someone who they consider their friend. Someone who they like times. The term grooming is used to describe the actions that happen leading up to sexual abuse with children by their abuser. Chris says that this is an inaccurate to us. Why do we use a word dreaming to describe what individual may do to sexually abuse a child. Why do we use a word that is in every other context pro-social what they're doing is manipulating. They're taking advantage of someone whom they can. They can deceive for their personal advantage and gain without any concern for that individual. There's multiple levels of manipulation that occur. I an individual manipulate the broader environment by having a good reputation and you know being well respected in their community like. Chris could never do something like that. I've known chris for twenty six years. And i've only known him to be x. Those are about creating this environment. Where i'm manipulating everybody to think i'm a really good guy to hide the things that maybe i'm doing. Secretly another level of manipulation that happens is the manipulation of caregivers or trusted others. so let's say individual wants to have sexual contact with a child. Their first step really is to win over the parents or caregivers of that child because the until they can have that individual access with a child or not can have the opportunity to sexually abuse them. It was part of the show you know they had a program that did change lives being inside. I was kind of isolated really any by that was closed federal was it's like two different worlds. You know there was the anna wakey outside and the patterns out he would definitely pick and choose who hurry. He was going to be close to or spent time with. I think that Any group later that had come to the program was certainly going to be on that list of people that would likely have had a relationship better. It's not an accusation. Just just the way it is. The last is the child. And it's not just a random approach. Where i'm just going to try to hit on every child necessarily that's not the case. Individuals may have particular interest in who they're interested in or who they may have a desire to be in contact with they may also will almost always look at. Is this a child. Who i i can manipulate or not if you have a child who always tells on everybody for every transaction. That's not who you're going after right because that individuals going to tell shortly after curls stay at the care about campus he was promoted to group counselor and put on an keys payroll which brought him even closer to petr and his home so i left the the group in florida after pretty much after the ninety days and i got my crest. We were started down that road. You know sometime. After that. I went to work with the group and is this kind of evolved into a group leader. It wasn't like there was any kind of formal process to it. I was just put with a group. Try this out and at some point i started getting a check for it paycheck. I was just following program. Really wasn't the first one to go through this. I needed a place to go when i was off. Pedder had a couple of beds in the basement of his house and there was another guy living there who'd been through the program Part of the family.

I've interviewed said they were referred to in a wakey from other schools in similar ways where did spread throughout learning centers in georgia and neighboring states. That anna wakey was a solution for troubled kids who didn't have a place elsewhere. Now that anna wakey was officially licensed medical hospital. It was also receiving patients who were wards of the state of georgia and other neighboring states like alabama. This all amounted to a large increase in the number of patients. Enrolling anna wakey was running out of room.
