Why Ralph Reed Created the Faith and Freedom Coalition
"Faith and freedom is one of the foremost reaching out. The grassroots, the bottom line, looking at these issues, if for people who strangely enough may know Ralph Reed, but they don't know faith in freedom or how they're working or maybe they're in a state in which, you know, that movement is still growing. How do people reach out to faith and freedom? How do you find out more about what's going on? And of course, we're going to be back on later in another day talking about some of these other issues, but I wanted to give you just a few minutes to just talk about faith and freedom. Sure. Well, I found it faith and freedom in 2009. After Barack Obama, you know, beat us so badly that it looked like a Harlem globetrotters basketball game. And we were the we were the pickup team that was there to lose. And they completely out hustled us on the ground, the O 8 Obama campaign. I knew we were going to lose and lose badly. When I got a call from a good friend of mine who lived in Akron, Ohio. In that band of counties that stretches from Cleveland east. And he called me and said, I just got my second door to door knock. Visit at the door from an Obama organizer with a clipboard, and I'm a Republican primary voter, and I know they know it. And I went, wow. They've knocked on every door and visited every democratic primary voter. Then they've gone to all the swing voters, all the independent voters. Now they're going to Republican voters. So I started faith and freedom to give us that kind of maximization of turnout among our core voters, which are voters of faith. Both pro life, faithful Roman Catholics, and evangelical Christians. Doug, those two together, the evangelicals are roughly 27% of the electorate. It goes up or down, depending upon the election, but it's roughly 27%. Faithful frequently mass attending Catholics are, again, rough number goes up or down. Is about 10% of the electorate. So you're looking at 37 percent of the entire electorate. It's the biggest single constituency bigger than the minority vote. The union vote and the gay vote combined, and it's over half the Republican vote. And we now have two and a half million members and activists involved in the organization over a million small donors, we have full-time staff and about 14 states now, state organizations and about 30 states. And if people want to find out how they can get involved and how they can make sure that the values that you and I share are represented in the civic arena and in public policy and that Christians have an effective voice in government, they can go to our website, which is FF as in faith and freedom, FF coalition, dot com, and they can sign up and believe me, we'll put them to

Biden Administration Is Transporting Illegal Immigrants Across the Country
"And watch this. So we've been waiting for this. Biden administration releasing a long awaited report on migrant encounters at the southern border during the month of December. It shows the number trying to enter the U.S. last month higher than the three previous December combined. Bill mullerian on that story, some stunning video as well live in Brownsville, Texas. Wow. Bill, good morning. Bill good morning to you right now. We are in front of a parking garage in Brownsville where for the very first time during this border crisis, we actually witnessed the mass release of single adult male migrants from federal custody. Take a look at this video we shot right here on Sunday afternoon. What you're looking at are federally contracted buses dropping off dozens of migrants at this parking garage and what you'll quickly notice is these are all single adults being released almost all of them men. No children, no family units. And this raised eyebrows with us because single adults are supposed to be expelled from the country via title 42. So we watched these as these migrants were ushered into this unmarked office with a for lease sign. There were some black tarps set up outside to restrict the public from viewing what was going on. And after a short time in that office, we started noticing taxicabs showing up to this parking garage. The Laplace parking garage. We watched as migrants then came out of the office, got into the taxicabs and the taxicabs started driving away. So we followed those taxicabs. They ended up going to Harlem gene airport about 20 to 30 minutes away from where we are. And those migrants were just dropped off at the airport to fly around the country. We talked to a couple of them. They said they were going to Atlanta, Houston in Miami, and they had just crossed illegally and paid a cartel $2000 to do so. So I reached out to the city of Brownsville to ask what the heck's going on here and they confirmed their
NYC Councilman Joe Borelli: Kristin Richardson Jordan Is a Disgrace
"'cause I had to ask you about the city council member from Harlem. This Harlem councilwoman is Kristen Richardson Johnson. She tweeted out, sympathy for the relatives the families of both the NYPD officers Jason Rivera and wilbert Mora and the killer. This woman literally we know she's against the police. She's said many times before we got a strip funding from the police, their white supremacists and all the garbage that these lunatics on the left say about our police, but she had the audacity councilman borelli to tweet out sympathies and condolences to the families of the family of this monster. I got to get your take on this councilman. Mike, she's an absolute disgrace. I mean, she is someone who doesn't deserve to be in office. She's someone who doesn't deserve to represent a vibrant and historic community like Harlem, frankly, people who live in her district deserve better. And unfortunately, the voters are stuck with her, at least for the next two years before they can find somebody else. You know, Mike, we have a lot of people in the city council and city government here who are African American who are Democrats who I disagree with all the time. But are fundamentally decent people and when two police officers were murdered serving this city, they all found somehow that the strength to say kind things and supportive things about the men and women of law enforcement. It's almost it's almost like being on Mars to find someone who just can't find kind and comforting words to mention two police officers who are killed in her own district. I mean, police officer Rivera was probably her constituent that the guy lived just a mile or even less from where he was killed. This is a member of her community.
NYPD Commissioner Sends Heartfelt Message About Second Officer's Death in Harlem Shooting
"Yesterday, the New York City police commissioner key shot sewell sent out a beautiful message about the passing of the second NYPD officer who was gunned down while responding to a domestic disturbance call in Harlem, she tweeted wilbert, wilbert Mora is three times a hero for choosing a life of service for sacrificing his life to protect others for giving life even in death through organ donation. Our heads are bowed and our hearts are heavy. It's a great message, I think that speaks for New Yorkers and Americans who have followed the story of these two young officers ambushed and murdered by a monster,
NYC Councilwoman Says She Was Told Don't Tweet About Cops
"As I mentioned, the second NYPD officer who was shot on that domestic violence call in Harlem has now died. A council woman in New York named Christian Richardson Jordan after the shooting, she tweeted two hours later about a concerned over a neighborhood community garden being shut down. Didn't tweet one word about the officers being shot. After she was hammered on social media for her tweet, she then said this and I'm quoting. I have been asked not to tweet about it referring to the shooting. At this time, but I will definitely address it quote. Who asked you not to tweet about it? Who told you not to say anything about it? Now this is the same woman who as I said yesterday had absolutely no problem tweeting about how honory the police are. Here's what she said back in June of last year and I'm quoting she tweeted always remember that the police and prison systems were created to preserve slavery. I kid you not. To break the chains, we must fight for total abolition.

Mike Gallagher: NYC Cop-Killing Suspect Lashawn McNeil 'Ought to Be Burning in Hell Right Now'
"And it's not just the governor of New York. It's just the left's instinctive knee jerk desire to blame everybody except for the bad guys. This guy in this Harlem shooting in New York, Yuri, do we have a picture posted on the stream of this gun? We ought to get a picture of this gun. You can't believe what this thing looks like. He had this modified, this guy was a flat out rotten gangster. Holding a gun that had so many rounds taking it looked like a handgun into a semi-automatic, maybe even an automatic. I don't know. Lengthy rap sheet, I hate to be this is not a very Christian thing of me to say, and I'm ashamed of myself, but I've just got to say it. The worst, the only thing worse than the police officer dine, was that for they shot this guy he didn't die. Because he got to be burning in hell right now. I am so sick of this,

Voter Suppression, the Real 'Big Lie'
"So back to the political science professor from university of Georgia Charles S bulloch the third. He said this regarding Biden's assertion about them cutting ours. You can criticize the bill for many things. But I don't think you can criticize it for reducing the hours you can vote. Fact checker said the law did make some changes to early voting. But said experts say the net effect of the new early voting rules was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not to limit them. So it's just, once again, not true. But boy, do they believe that these dastardly voting laws pushed by these racist people are designed to suppress the vote, even though as ami Horowitz found out, we're going to east Harlem. People had absolutely no problem getting voter ID.

Yukiko remains somewhat of a mystery as does tako a little bit to a lesser extent through. Go the main question lies in. When will yukiko get married so the deal is as in. I guess royal families. You're supposed to go in age order so to ruko. Touchy co have been married off. Yukiko is stubbornly difficult to send off to a husband and for a number of reasons. You never really understand what entirely going on in you goes mind. Although she has a way of putting her foot down when she's not interested in someone in ways that can become really frustrating for the reader. And you feel frustrated because you're eager for her to get married and there's a kind of ticking bomb in that tyco. The younger sister has been fooling around and getting into mischief while waiting for her turn to marry in ways that are sabotaging yukiko chances by putting the family name in a poor light. So it's this tension between when will you get go get married and will it be too late will take.

"He writes in this very ornate kind of gothic prose style. That's i mean it's fancy by just really compelling in some ways what he's writing about is the same thing the existed. He's a tramp a hobo but he's not doing it in the beatnik style at all. He's doing it in this. Fancy pro style. Is it's more john mcphee tom wolfe very learned. Kind of autodidact. Dick and he's won me over. I i will read all trilogy. John where do you reading. I'm reading a book because a friend recently picked it up. And i said oh. I should reread that so we can talk about it and i say that that people probably five or six times a year. Oh let's do a little person but club. And i almost literally never actually ended up reading book or having the book club so i convinced myself this time to do it. It's a novel by anita brookner. Who about before on the podcast. But not for a while. This is in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight novel latecomers that i read probably three or so years ago. And luckily. Because i have the memory of a goldfish. I reading is pleasurable for me. Because i i don't remember much. Even i've underlined quite a bit in her books. This is an interesting novel because unlike the others of hers that i've read read a handful of them and and i have a lot more to go shoes pretty prolific. Even though she started relatively late in life the ones that i've read tend to be very much within the consciousness or surrounding the consciousness of of a woman who is as one person put it. Somewhere suffocatingly sad somewhat regretful. Living a kind of spare life and psychologically analyzing that the people around earn ourself. even if it's in third person. This book is a much more. It has her style. It's very psychological. But it's about to primarily about two men who went from germany during the war years to live with one of their aunts and so the two men are named hartman and fitch the call themselves by their last names and even their wives do. because they're both they both recalled thomas so they go by their last names and they go into business together. They end up living in two flats in the same building with their wives.

That is i think mysterious. Still the life of henry james or the figure that he was or the i suppose gaps or distances in in between one thing and another if you say one thing about him.

So that by the time he arrives to live in england. When he's in his thirties he really has no home. And succumbing sense of trying to find one trying to go to lamb house in rye in sussex and england and set up a home there but of course he was solitary. He was a bachelor. So there's always an uneasy sort of flickering relationship to home and thomas mann in nineteen thirty-three was outside germany when hitler came to power and he didn't come back in warrenton not and so he so he goes to switzerland to france then eventually arrives in princeton and ninety thirty eight and then eventually to california in nineteen forty one and so he spends the warriors outside germany thinking germany sort of living in.

I mean i think i had done my emotional heavy lifting before i wrote underground road and so i knew what i was getting into but then having another setting where innocence are bringing brutalized and are searching for their freedom really demoralized me and so as i was finishing nickel boys and bring the boys closer to their tragic fate that i'd mapped out. You know two years before. I thought very depressed and depleted and finish the book. And then just play video games and barbecued for six weeks. And that's how. I came back into myself so having a project that has the capacity for joking and humor and i see making jokes as part of my project. And why why right. It's one of my avenues of exploration so having having fun with this crime genre and some of the supporting cast are kind of colorful was relief and from the first page of writing the book and getting back into needed writing a book said new york. I thought i was on my home turf. After writing two books set in the south and and the challenge of recreating a newark. Before i appeared on the scene i was born in sixty nine Was a nice challenge for me. Do you see a through line between say underground railroad and your new novel in the sense that after slavery and once jim crow started and when you know lynchings and other forms of attacks against black people were so common so many people from the south moved to the north and that's probably one of the ways harlem became harlem. I know how harlem became black as opposed to jewish and italian which it was before that you write harlem was desegregated in nineteen forty after the neighborhood tipped over from jews and italians and became the domain of southern blacks and west indians. I love this line. Everyone who came up uptown had crossed some variety of violent ocean. I mean you know. There's this churn of immigrants in harlem which i found very fun to explore the hundred years ago. Harlan is farmland pasture. Land speculators put a buildings and the tenants and townhouses are filled with all these refugees from from europe and it is italians and irish jews from elaborate all over europe irish and they come to make their way in this new country. The cross the water they entered the middle class and move away to the suburbs downtown. Different neighborhoods in manhattan. The replaced by a wave of a black migration from the south from the caribbean. My grandmother came through ellis island in nineteen twenty s from barbados. And so what. I love the research walking through these different neighborhoods and seeing these old brownstone townhouses and imagining that churn. I mentioned the churn of stolen goods in out of people's hands. And there's this churn inside these humble townhouses all those different lives and those different rivers and oceans that they've they've crossed come year and dancer the middle class.

Grubhub Accused of Overcharging Restaurants Amid COVID Pandemic in New Lawsuits
"Ingram hub in new york city a lot of restaurants. We're finding that they were getting charged for phone calls. Now you think about that. And you're like that's kind of weird. How could grub charge a restaurant for a phone call. The way they do that is when you go to the grub up pitch for your favorite restaurant they generate a number that route routes through grub hub. I so you're actually calling the restaurant but not before grab the mafia daughter for you right. But like this is why they feel like it's mafia. They opened the door for you. They're not providing any service besides discovery. Personally i've done this. I i wanna call the restaurant directly order from them and reduced that mission costs so i go and they don't like maybe have a website or maybe grow is the first thing that shows up so i clicked on crop up. Call that phone number now. I know they are not getting a benefit from that. They're still being charged. And what's weird about it is. They can't determine the order that you've done so they do like an average so like they between like for this restaurant the hampel noodle the ex-pat in in harlem charging like five to eight dollars five to seven dollars about like approximately per order so like if i'm ordering like an eleven dollar noodles myself and now they're being charged five to seven dollars for that like that's a crazy amount of money. In a lot of cases it's an algorithm that was determining how charge because there's nobody on the phone listening. Actually i listening to the calls so the algorithm says this call last thirty seconds. It's an order but sometimes it wasn't an order. The person was like hey like do you have this dish like and they were like no and i actually hung up and drop hub was actually chart charging for that. Oh this is. there's a lawsuit actually a couple of lawsuits. That have happened outside of new york city or people have sued for group. Says like you're right. We should only charge for orders on the phone that resulted order so they still believe that like it should be able to get money also phone call orders but they basically saying there are a lot of fraudulent charge.

Like so much of San Francisco history, story of the fillmore can be traced back to the day. The city shook. After the earthquake pretty much, all of San Francisco relocated to the fillmore, simply because it was the closest place to downtown that survived relatively intact, the earthquake and subsequent fire Elizabeth Pepin Silva is a filmmaker and Co author of the Book Harlem of the West She grew up in San Francisco. When she was a teenager, she got a job working for music promoter Bill Graham at the Fillmore Auditorium. It's how she first started digging into the history of the neighborhood. Once downtown was rebuilt. The local fillmore neighborhoods merchants, association. Trying to figure out a way to keep people coming back to the neighborhood. It was decided that the film would be San. Francisco's entertainment center in one thousand nine, an amusement park called the fillmore shoots was built complete with a wooden roller coaster and ferris wheel and three years later the fillmore auditorium. Beer halls it was. It was really fun exciting place. It was place to go at fun. But it was mainly for white people. Yes San! Francisco was segregated. But in the fillmore, little bit different. The earthquake had damaged a lot of neighborhoods where people of color were allowed to live in the city, but the surviving fillmore district had. Real estate in a history of accepting immigrants so through the early nineteen hundreds up until the nineteen forties. You had Filipinos Mexicans African Americans. Russians Japanese Americans and Jewish people living next door to one another, and it was really became known as one of the most integrated neighborhoods west of the Mississippi. On December. Seventh Nineteen, forty one Japan like it's infamous access partners struck first and declared war afterwards. Then Pearl Harbor was bombed, and the country changed completely. Japanese Americans are forced into a concentration camps in and. Left this huge hole in the fillmore district. At the same time there was a push to recruit Americans from the Midwest to work the shipyards in San Francisco and Richmond than they were given a free train ticket and promised the job and they're like. Come on out, we need you. African Americans arriving in San Francisco moved into empty apartments. The Japanese Americans had been forced out of and between nineteen forty and nineteen fifty.
