Noel Casler on Trump's Ivana Tax Cut
"First of all, I couldn't wait to talk with you about Havana. And then we'll get on to the other things. You tweeted Trump holding a golf tournament days after his first wife and mother of some of his children to basically buried in the backyard as a new low in a long life of crassness. I saw a picture. There's literally a patch of dirt and a paving stone with her name on it. For a tax break, it's so Donald Trump, isn't it? Right. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And when he applied for the permit to have the cemetery on his golf course, for his tombstone, he wants a 16 foot high obelisk. And that became contentious at the permit meeting in the town of bedminster. I'm not even joking, right? So do you think Donald Trump would be satisfied with a paving stone with his name card? They didn't even spring for sod. If you saw the pictures, it's just I had a more elaborate thing for my cat when I buried up in the backyard.
Remember the Elián González Saga?
"Just reminds I love it when there are all these strange political bedfellows. It goes back to ilian Gonzalez in the Clinton administration. Remember the little boy in a little Havana in Miami? His mother drowned bringing him into the country and the father in Cuba wanted the little boy back and Janet Reno's Justice Department broke down the door and they swiped the kid from the arms of the relatives and delivered the boy back to communist Cuba. Remember that? And I remember at the time I was at a conference with a bunch of talk show hosts and all the big mouths on the radio gathered, which is rough. That's not a place I'm not real comfortable because I believe me, I'm mindful that I'm one of those big mouths and no one knew what position to take because it was, I mean, it was Clinton and we don't want to be pro Clinton, but on the other hand, family values, the kids being returned to daddy back in Cuba. Yeah, but it's communist Cuba. It's Phil de Fidel Castro. No one knew what to do. Well, the same thing's happening here. He got Tom Friedman from The New York Times lashing out at Pelosi. You've got Tucker Carlson from Fox News, condemning Pelosi. You've got, I guess, Pelosi supporters loving what she's doing. And you've got the Biden administration letting her go.

"He was like in the opening of the baseball game. So yeah, you can do that. You can also see a boxing match. Okay. Sure. We're well known for years. Exactly. Interesting. The Havana sugar kings, I see. Okay. Excellent. Anything else we want to tell people when they go down to Cuba to Havana. You will get a lot of people coming up to you and saying everybody's got everybody that travels is going to relate to this. Where are you from? Sure. A lot of that. So just, you know, if you want to tell them and you're want to engage, you know, that's fine, but sometimes they will, what they're after is money. So careful with that. Just use your own common sense. On the other hand, there are a lot of people that want to practice their English. Sure. And they're just a lovely people that are open and engaging and want to practice their English and that's a lot of fun thing to do. Every night on 23rd street and the 23rd street that I mentioned, anybody says 23rd street in Havana, they know what you're talking about. It's like Fifth Avenue in New York City. 23rd street and the water. It ends at the water, a right by the sea wall right there. There is a gathering point every night people get together there. They listen to music. It's just this impromptu thing. I start conversations with you. There are vendors, you can have a snack there. It's just a really interesting place to hang out. And there's no air conditioning in a lot of people's homes. Sure. What people do is they go out and buy the sea by the sea wall, which is referred to as Havana's living room. So yeah, they are they all hang out there. That's a very nice thing to do if you're looking for something very different. Also, the Internet is very spotty in some places. It's nonexistent, so what you do is that you'll get a card about a dollar. You can get that at places where the Tyler communications offices throughout Cuba, which are called a dexa. So you go there and you stand online, everything is aligned in Cuba. You get your card, and you put in your number on your phone, and you get an hour. You have to find a Wi-Fi area, which is all over the place. Wherever you see a bunch of Cubans gathered in a group looking down at their phones, that's a one point place. You go to hotels and hotel lobbies are also places. But there you have to buy something. And you put in your number and you've got Wi-Fi for an hour. You can also buy them in increments of $5, but I found that sometimes if you buy them in increments of $5 and you use like 90 minutes, that it's difficult to get back on again. So I'd buy 5 separate $1 cars. Got it. So those are things to remember. If at all possible, if you can make it out to the eastern to the eastern regions of Santiago, the second biggest city is the most important city of Havana. The town of Barack, which I mentioned, was a big chocolate producing, which is in the center of Cuba. That's a very interesting town, which was founded by French people from Louisiana and from Africa, a place in France. You see the French influence in the arts architecture. Now I think you're starting to another episode on Cuba, so we may have to have it come back to and talk to us more about more about Cuba. There is more to see than just Havana. As you told us in the beginning. As we start to wrap this up, you are standing in the prettiest spot in Havana. Where are you standing on what are you looking at? That is another hour. But if I have to say, I am standing in the rooftop bar of the Packard hotel looking. Over the water. Okay. It is the Packard hotel, not one of the ones I can stay at as an American, but you can not stay there. Okay. Excellent. Exactly. Excellent. And one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Havana. I don't know if it makes me laugh at some of the things make me sad and I say only in Havana makes me laugh. Oh, the dogs in many of the plazas have little name tags, the stray dorms, they have name tags, and they all belong to a particular office or a particular store or a particular museum. And they have little name tags on high. My name is carmelita. Be nice to me. I think that's sweet and funny. And I've never seen that anywhere else. That is funny. I have not either. And if you had to summarize Havana in just three words, what three words would you pick? Colonial, magical, musical. Excellent excellent. Well, and italic we didn't mention, but if people are interested, you also do tours I understand in Cuba. They were on hiatus for two and a half years. I wonder why. And restarting them. So if you're interested, just go to my website. WWW dot travels with talley dot com. And you'll see some of the older tours and it's going to be similar. And so you do tours of Havana and also elsewhere in Cuba. That's correct. Excellent. And where people can do is subscribe to my website and then they will be alerted as to when they are out. Now right now we do have a tour not to Havana. We have a tour to Spain in September for September 21st. It's going to the north of Spain starting in Barcelona, ending in Santiago de Compostela. People are interested in that. I have two spaces left. All right. And then if we wanted to send people to the best post you have on travels with telek dot com about Havana, where are we going to send them? Go to ten dos and don'ts in Havana. Tendus and don'ts. Well, that actually sounds very interesting because now I'm now I want to know what the don'ts are and we'll go send people to that website to look it up to like thank you so much for coming back on amateur traveler and sharing with us your love for Havana.

"To the show talc notes from travels with talik dot com. If the name sounds familiar, she has been on the show recently talking about Patagonia, but this time we're heading to Cuba and more specifically Havana. Welcome back to the show. Thank you. It's a pleasure to be here. Well, and what is your connection with Havana and with Cuba in general? Okay, my family came from Cuba in the 50s and we landed in New York City and became American citizens while I was born actually my mother was pregnant with me when she came to the United States. I was born in New York. My entire family is from Cuba and I married a Cuban who came to this country to United States in the 60s during the Great Migration for political reasons. And I traveled to Cuba back and forth had family there up until recently. I love it. It's beautiful. I love the music, the people, the nature. I can go on and on and I will go on and on. Which is why you're here. So that's my connection. Excellent and why should someone go to Havana? Well, heaven is the capital of Cuba, people think of Cuba. They sometimes all they think about is Havana. It's actually many other cities. Havana is fascinating for many reasons. One, it is a colonial city. It was founded in 1519 by the Spaniards who came over looking for gold and I'm not going to say a better life than the way the Americans think of it that you left for economic reasons. They pretty much came looking for gold. And they found some. They found silver and Havana became a major.

"Back in november of twenty eighteen published an episode titled those weird cuban attacks. It was about what's now commonly referred to as havana syndrome. Though it would appear the biden administration is trying to get away from that name. There apparently calling them unexplained health incidents or uh is now because there's still a lot of mystery surrounding what exactly is going on here and whatever is happening is no longer limited to just this week. The pentagon asked all of its military personnel civilian officials and contractors to report any health issues similar to what diplomats and cia officers. I experienced in havana years later. They're still trying to figure out. What exactly is going on. As is vox unexplainable podcast today. We're bringing you a recent episode of there's tackling event syndrome.

"havana" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"About the leadership of the agency under director gina. Hass and and i know that you know. The current director bill burns has come in and really embraced the need to do something about this. Intern investigated and it's been reported. He privately has his beliefs that the russians are very likely behind. The senate is some kind of directed energy weapon. How was it for you at the end of your career when this organization that were you'd spent a quarter century of your life. Really the only place you've ever worked professionally. Did you feel like they were turning back. Oh yeah i'm so well we're even begin on this so let me just answer that yes. It was incredible sense of betrayal. But but let me explain. What happened is so when i came back. I started a long process requesting healthcare. And i was you know especially in the beginning but then all through two thousand eighteen. Where where i really started feeling terrible. I mean i i lost my ability drive less my long distance vision to retire. No i you know. Why would i was. I was and i say this modestly. I was destined to rise up us. Yeah you're on the on the track going on. There's not out about that. But but ultimately i you know. I was repeatedly asked him for them to to do things. Like send me to university of pennsylvania where they sent a whole bunch of the havana victims and and the response from the the senior levels of the agency. Medical staff was no and so by the time i retired. I was very frustrated. That was not getting the treatment i needed. I was not in great shape. What's interesting is what happened after that is when several of my colleagues started getting hit with this and you know one thing that you know. I think it's it's. It's pretty clear that you know when you retire is still very close to those who were still inside so i started learning about you know multiple colleagues of mine. Who were injured by by this so that you know then then you start thinking. And then they got healthcare then they were actually they. One of them was actually sent to walter reed. Which is when. I say walter reed. That's the national intrepid center of excellence. The us government's leading traumatic brain injury outfit. Run by the us navy. Right in here in bethesda maryland close by and so i then started reaching back into the agency. And saying hey. I really need to get the walter. I am not in good shape right here and the answer is no and it was. It was very distressing. You know i. I then started saying that look. I really need this care. If you don't do it. I'm going to go to the press actually went and i met with say one of the top five officials at the eye and said And said look. I'm going to have to the press in this please. I you know. I don't want anything else. Just give me to walter reed and the answer was no so. I made the kind of the fateful decision to talk to julia. Who is who is a russian expert speaks. Russian born born in russia and most importantly had had a venue had g. q. Magazine to tell the real story. And i was long treatment along and i was really worried at how i gonna come across because again i am not a disgruntled employ in the ultimate. If you go down in my you know my basement you're going to see all the intelligence metals. I'm one of the most highly decorated officers and my generation. You know. I think some people might not be thrilled with now. How outspoken i. I wasn't the media but you know if you know my reputation is pretty damn good inside so ultimately when public but what what happened after. That was really difficult for me because there was a huge backlash against me and where a lot of people were people in the agency instructed in some fashion instructed. My friends not to speak with me anymore. I mean was a terrible moral injury. They're ultimately because of the intervention of of some form directors After the story came out As well as i hired a lawyer hired marks zayd to simply communicate with the agency. That all i want is to get to to walter reed. They did send me there. Just as the administration was changing over so in january of two thousand twenty. One i get to finally go to walter reed and then bill burns comes and everything changes to be honest. So you know. Bills wide known briefly in the past From overseas service actually called me. And i had met with him several times and he. He's taken a tremendously different tact. Because i think fundamentally he agreed with that there was a big leadership fail from the last administration. Not when talking about investigating. Who's doing this and that's a whole separate issue but just the simple fact of healthcare if someone gets injured on your watch you know. Just get them treatment and it was a mystery to him. It's a mystery to me. And i think a mystery to everybody why that the former cia administration did not get us the healthcare that we deserved. That's something that you know to this day. I can't explain. i think. Now people in the agency a lot of my you know my friends are talking to me again. you know. This is a whole separate personal issue. Because i really did feel betrayed by them. That's okay And one of the great things know certainly at walter. Reed it in in therapy. You learn about forgiveness and so I'm feeling much better. I i've much better relationship with the agency. But but make no mistake. And this and i'll i'll i'll conclude i'm talking a lot here on this but a former lawyer at cia gave me the best advice anyone ever gave at for retirees. He said look when you leave. Cia you get you getting divorced. You can't hang on so you can choose to pass. You can have a really nasty divorce. And he said mark you kinda had that or you can try to an amicable divorce and he goes. That's where you kinda wanna be. And i think that's a really smart decision because i am not no longer member of the organization. I still deeply believe in it. And i write about it if you read the book. It's almost like a love affair. One of your colleagues in the media said to me how they she couldn't believe how poorly treated but you still seem to love the place while you can talk to my my therapist about that. They certainly like talking about that. But but ultimately you know it's an organization that i think is indispensable. I had you know a little rough stretch in the end with them. But but most importantly now as you as you hinted at before. I become an advocate for healthcare. And i think that's the space i really like now because as you know and as the reports weekly are coming in this is happening all over the world and so i'll leave it to to you know the the great operations officers and targets analysts to find out who the hell's doing this but on the healthcare side. I can still kind of publicly push that to sure that anytime someone's injured the immediate healthcare in my understanding in talking to direct burns and certainly from friends inside is that's the case and you feel better. I do i well. Neko walter reed gave me two things that gave me tools and it gave me gave me hope and and and that whole piece is actually really important. Because i didn't have that. When i went public with article with julia i had lost all hope. And i'll tell you when. I got to walter reed in january of two thousand twenty one and i still have a damn headache by headaches. Haven't gone away. But i was not feeling great but they the anxiety i'd had developed because of this kind of public battle with the agency that i think the doctors were really concerned about that. And so you know. I'm i don't have that anymore And and you know there's there's nothing like gona place where you're sitting with a whole bunch of navy seals and green berets and and doing yoga every morning or or or meditation or deep breathing exercises so those are the things in terms of wellness. That walter reed really treats tb victims and let me say one thing. I was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. It's a formal diagnosis of a tb. I based on external exposure.

"Over. Imagining my symptoms or making them up but douglas smith the pen neurologist. Who examined the havana syndrome patients. He says that regardless of the explanation the suggestion that there may have been no attack. It's been difficult for patients. There became a debate out there from outside experts quote unquote who really upset the patients by just being absolutely certain that this was kind of a mass psychogenic illness or some other psychological issue and they call us a lot of stress to these patients. Who felt that crazy story. So who's going to believe in the begin with douglas. His team actually included tests specifically designed to show. That havana syndrome wasn't just psychological. We had the equivalent of that nature test. You know eye tracking an eye movements in how your eyes converge as you move an object closer to the middle of your knows. Somebody can't fake these evening of a psychological. You can't create these types of neurological symptoms just out of thin air and the team later. Supported these tests with functional. Mri results we selected a mri sequence. That takes a look at the connectivity of the brain and the areas that had loss of connectivity could account for the neurological symptoms that the patients displayed. But john says the still doesn't rule out a functional disorder. I agree with him. But one concede changes in the brain. And we'll start to see changes on testing. But that's the case with functional disorders as well we may just need to rethink this seemingly hard division between what's neurological and what psychological neurological and psychological referred to the same organ. And this is why. It's so hard thing to report these things or help. People get their head around because everything is telling us that. There are these two categories when i think neuroscience is telling us that there aren't these are disorders that actually forcing us to have a whole new way of thinking about what is the brain. One is the mind think of phantom leg syndrome for example. A soldier has the leg amputated but the brain still believes it to be there and they experienced very distressing phantoms of limb. being there. it's painful is out psychological problem. You wouldn't necessarily say so you would say well that's kind of brain problem and in a sense. A functional disorder is kinda like reverse phantom limb syndrome. The brain is functioning. Like something's wrong even when nothing is. Structurally wrong but when it comes to applying this idea to havana syndrome. It's just a hypothesis. It's very different from actually examining patients. The only people were saying that this is primarily a psychological issue are people who have never examined the patients university of pennsylvania neurologist. Douglas smith again individuals who examined the patients believe that. This is a neurological issue. People from the outside feel very confident in their diagnosis. A patient who had never seen. I've never met any of these patients with havana syndrome. I do not know what they have. My only interest in this is the i see functional disorders being thoroughly misrepresented. I completely understand what he's saying in front of him or patients with genuine conditions. But that is not reason to dismiss the possibility of functional disorders playing at least upon what's happening a functional disorders genuine disorder just as much as a brain injury. I see this all the time in my clinical practice. So i see people who have had minor head injuries. They had concussion symptoms for while and then they gradually get worse because they develop a functional disorder and it becomes very harmful to them if they're caught in the medical system is telling them this is all brain damage now. It's very validating for the patient. But if they do have a functional disorder. It's potentially very harmful because you'll denying them. The opportunity to consider treatment of their condition through other means now thinking of havana syndrome is a functional disorder. Could mean that. It wasn't caused by an outside energy source but at the same time it doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility john is still open to the idea that an energy source could be part of the equation. Here perhaps there is a soulmate weapon. If someone said has been built in. it's possible to direct it. I would absolutely accept that but even if there is a summit weapon is it the case that some people had a sonic attack that affected their brain and then they approved again whereas other people gradually got worse because they developed a functional disorder. These a scientific hypotheses to be tested without dismissing out of hand because of someone's prejudice about functional disorders. Last idea that havana syndrome could have been caused by an initial energy source and then it could have become chronic because of a functional disorder. John not the only ones suggesting it in late. Twenty twenty the national academies of sciences put out a report along the same lines but still they equivocated and they said that other causes couldn't be ruled out because the truth is that right now. They're still no way to definitively say what happened to these patients. We can rely on imaging to an extent but even that requires interpretation. And that's largely because the brain is just absurdly ridiculously complicated. So in the end we're left with a pretty giant unknown here. We can locate that unknown outside the brain but we can also locate it within the brain itself. I don't understand how my brain works. i don't understand how i do. Anything science journalist. Dan hurley again. Nobody understands how our brain works. He's only slightly exaggerating. How does your brain right now. Create the impression that you are here that this is your body that that's the clock on the wall. You.

This mysterious condition that's affected about two hundred diplomats around the world patients are still suffering and scientists haven't been able to come to a consensus on. What kind of energy source could cause this syndrome. But there's another possible theory havana. Syndrome could be an example of something called functional disorder. These kinds of disorders are just beginning to be understood. Because they don't usually involve observable structural damage in the brain a functional disorder is less about how the brain looks than about how it works. How it's communicating a structural brain.

"In two thousand eighteen. Douglas and his team at penn published a study which found that these government officials did appear to have sustained brain injuries. But they didn't know what could have caused them. The team left that open. Claiming the symptoms were due to a quote unknown energy source associated with auditory sensory phenomena. Meanwhile the us government seemed split on how to refer to the episodes while some called them incidents others like former secretary of state. Rex tillerson started calling them attacks. We hold them. Cuban authorities responsible for finding out who is carrying out the health packs. Not just our diplomats. But as you're seeing now there are other cases with other diplomats. The us ended up withdrawing most of its staff from the cuban embassy but more and more incidents kept being reported. This time outside of cuba. I it was in moscow in invisible attack in a moscow hotel. Ben it was in china abnormal sound left a consulate worker with a mild brain injury. It was in australia to senior. See i. I have been attacked in washington dc on the national mall. They want to turn now to a mystery right here. In the nation's capital the reports kept on coming. It's been reported in poland. London and taiwan. And even this past summer. There were incidents in vienna so this a big issue for the austrian authorities and clearly for the united states. Next thing you know it's nbc the new york times sixty minutes science journalist dan hurley again. They're all saying. Americans are being attacked and scott pelley tonight on sixty minutes in his classic signature. Rumble i'm scott. Pelley on scott kelly. There appears to be a hostile foreign governments plan to target americans serving abroad and their families at first the. Us blamed cuba the cubans. Were saying we don't even know what you're talking about. This is not us then the. Us blamed the russians. They blamed the chinese but incidents have continued to be reported as of now. It's up to around two hundred people but you know the truth is there's no evidence of any foreign government being involved. Is there any type of sonic weapon. That could do this. Like could cicadas be be weaponized. No not done no no so there. Is this strange effect. That's called the fray effect back in the sixties a scientist named allan fray found that microwaves aimed at the head could cause a clicking sound. You had to be in a very quiet room to even notice it. But the fray effect cannot cause brain damage. It's just something people grabbed on one of the engineers. I spoke to who did a study of the fray effect kenneth foster professor of bioengineering. He said the kind of effect that is being talked about With the embassy is truly a theory tale. He said you might as well be talking about little green men from mars throwing darts of energy. I can't conceal the microwave weapon as being thought about in this case no one is measured. Microwaves in the embassy. As far as i know it's just purely speculation. there's anything at all logging. Microwaves in this case. And if you take that low level of energy that gets you the fray effect and just turn it up a lot. Could that be a possible. Cause here like shoot a lot of microwaves. So there's something else. Called an active denial system which the us government the military has used to disperse a crowd. It's called millimeter waves instead of. Microwaves it's ninety five gigahertz instead of two and a half gigahertz okay. So like higher frequency than microwaves. Yeah and it only goes skin deep So it makes you feel like you've got a burning sensation on your skin. And it's never been known to any sounds or to cause chronic brain damage. What if you did this. With actual microwaves and not millimeter waves. Well that would be exactly like climbing inside a microwave oven and it wouldn't be something that they hear a noise and go. Gee what's that no it would be like getting microwave. It heats up your body and it would be a painful experience okay. outside of microwaves or millimeter waves. Are there any other possible. Causes here ultrasound. And that i guess is is very high pitched frequencies. Yes now apparently if you took an ultrasound generator and you put it in a bucket of water you could make little bubbles appear and i talked to timothy layton. Who's a professor of ultra sonics. And he told me you know if you send it through the air you'll never get that effect you know with the pregnant woman. The reason they use the slippery gel is you can't have an air gap so essentially the idea here is that you couldn't get this effect from faraway right. Someone would have to sneak up behind them and touch them with an ultrasound machine or something. Yeah you know. What layton said was we have no evidence and no theories of how it could do that and he said the idea of some kind of secret ultrasonic death ray going through the air to hit you. It's nonsensical and that's a quote and one of the key. Things is even if you got a concussion. It is unusual for people to develop chronic long-term sickness from that and yet most of the people with this syndrome do seem to have chronic symptoms mean. It just doesn't fit with what's known about mild traumatic brain injuries. None of it makes sense by any physical means to this day. Neither pen doctors who examined the patients nor other experts have been able to point to a definitive cause for venison drum but some scientists have claimed that certain high frequency radio waves could be conceivable possibility. The science is far from resolved. But dan is one of many people who think there could be another option here. There is a simple explanation that is entirely consistent with what neurologist. No and nobody wants to believe it. That's after the break..

This bird has a point of view. anyway back to having a center so so they would have the sound and then they would have this pressure and then some of these neurological symptoms that i describe are pretty similar although some had more severe issues than others and for some persisted much longer whereas for others it was very transient right. So like kind of a range in terms of that the cia and the state department as these individuals started coming forward and kind of reporting to their bosses. They're spear officers.

"Centrum in the move from their current call it that My apologies to havana recently. It was reported that vice president kamala harris had her she had. She's doing an overseas trip and it was briefly delayed. Just like there was a pause. It was like a couple hours so not a big incident in the grand scheme of things for the vice president but the reason that it was delayed is a little more interesting. There were some what were reported as anomalous health incidents that occurred in hanoi which is where she was headed from singapore and so because of these incidents they pause the trip decided there was no concern for the vice president or any per staff. It did not affect anyone associated with the vice president and so she continued on her trip But because of that havana syndrome was putting the news and trending. And now here. we are Because i had no idea what it was. I'd never heard of it. I never heard of the phrase so it only dates back to twenty sixteen. That's why i feel. It feels weird to me that i'm not aware of this because it has all happened in recent years and there was a lot of i think media coverage of it initially. Perhaps it seems like so in twenty sixteen. There was a diplomat at the american embassy in cuba. Who had an odd health incident. Okay it occurred when she was actually in her home. Not in the embassy itself but in her home there in havana and she was standing in her kitchen and she began to experience. This severe headache and pressure in her head. A lot of these descriptions will sound like waves of pressure She didn't think much of it tried to a headache. I'll sleep it off But the next morning it was still there and she also began to have some memory issues some vertigo balance type issues. Some trouble walking and like sort of processing information like she. She mentioned she couldn't read a cereal box that morning. Like the back of cereal box. Oh these sorts of nonspecific. You know very Upsetting symptoms but not really pointing to one specific thing. The symptoms persisted. But she didn't tell anybody at first because she didn't she liked her job she gets home An but she would eventually learned that she was not alone because around the same time period. Three cia officers in cuba would have similar symptoms It and this is all towards the end of two thousand sixteen and into twenty seventeen And they would send a couple of people would go back to the us. And they sent a couple replacements. A officers who also had these symptoms right Many tended to describe this in a in a similar sort of progression. You have some sort of pressure. Like i said some people said it was like oh like waves pressure in your head or just an intense pressure in your head but Many said that right before that started. They also had a like an auditory symptom. Meaning they heard something. They heard a very strange sound. And the sound was described. Sometimes like machine like like a grinding type of of course sound a rough sound other people described it. like a buzzing like cicadas. It was compared to like a bunch of crickets or cicadas or something like that. several times. that horrible bird.

Yeah so you know but when they talk to the neighbors there's she's a problematic during a mean in the neighborhood you put spotlights on the house and verbally abuses people It was not pleasant for anyone. Oh so this one guy. His mom lived in the neighborhood and she was the neighbor and This lady would spotlight. The house verbally abused her and his mother that lived next to her. She said it was not pleasant for her. It was basically well. It ended up killing her so it was like hell. So he's blaming schmidt for the death of his mom would because of how hard it was to deal with her. So that's a lot so yeah we kind of hope that maybe at this point it will bring point out you know but look it's gone now to the homeowners association and as we know what's going to happen with that but what can you do. You can't can you kick someone out of their neighborhood house of their neighborhood from an hoa. Don't know not real question i mean. I'm sure there's something. If you're like that disruptive i guess but to get someone out of a house that they own pretty hard to do to do. Yeah you're gonna be dealing with pat schmidt in this neighborhood schmidt attachment. I like to sit real fast and combined passionate passionate. You're going to be dealing with patch meant for awhile and this is what is going to go on. If you're walking down the street with their kids to me you know. I would make things interesting. Neighborhoods can be quite boring when you do have like a crazy neighbor. It's at least something to talk about right now. Bring everyone together and everybody can talk about. What's your name passionate. Patch patch meant. There was one around our neighborhood for a second so there was the new neighborhood that we live in. Now there was a lady that would come through. And if you had lights on or anything in your house you leave a note in your mailbox talking about her sensitivity to elect like microwaves whatever. Electro better call saul yes. So is that exact thing so she would leave a no in people's mailboxes. And like when i first moved in the neighborhood i was like i want. I want a no right. Like i want that note to be in my mailbox and i wanna read it because it's it makes life fucking interesting. These crazy people does. Because then you're talking to your neighbors about it. Yeah but i don't wanna live by him. She didn't live in the actual neighborhood. It was the one behind but she could feel the electro issue walking in the neighborhood. Then you know she wasn't. She could feel him in her house and so she would go to where the house she would drive to where the house was said. She could see all the lights on or some kind of something that she felt like was affecting her. Oh shit i remember one of my neighbors. One of our neighbors told us a got the no no. Yeah and i was like damn it. Try hard enough and believe in yourself into anything in this world. Try and leave all the stuff on in general just to do it. You know. I love to leave. Leave a lamp on a. You'll leave the light on bob. Paul mccartney's instagram right now. He made a video for charlie watts.

Charlie always loved you. Beautiful and condolences and sympathies to his family so so to hear about heartfelt weird heartfelt is always wondered when that doc. That's why i wanted to play this. Wash that mckearney doc. On hulu recently they came out with rick rubin. The one question was unanswered. Out of all of it and it was a great talk and it was only one that i wanted. Were your feelings about the rolling stones. I was surprised when this popped up and my feet of like. A paul mccartney is made a statement immediately knows like because i don't think they have a feud i think it's the fans that do gotcha. Yes because just in general we all like to be on like tribes insides right but they have played together. Hung out together. They don't they don't like they like each other. They have to store all of his stories when he was going to hang out with. People were with other people never the stones. And i was like all right. It's okay that they're not like super close but they hate each because you said england's pretty fucking smaller it well. Yeah so that's weird. That's all two biggest bands in the world of all the time you were like. It's weird they don't ever seen each other. Yeah they were busy. They never saw each other in this tiny country they lived in. What was the first major rolling stones album like the first one. That really blew them up. Get back to sixty five okay. I was wondering just how much overlap they had. Because the beatles were done by seventy seven feel like the rolling stones really like ethically huge in the seventies like big in the sixties. But i feel like what sticky fingers let it. Bleed lead sixty nine but like sixty nine. Okay iraq's off only rock and roll those are all seventies. that's true probably hang on. I think the first album was sixty five. If memory serves me correct album with sixty four. But i was just wondering when they exploded right so like the beatles were and i think they've even talked about the beatles being like an inspiration for them because they broke i for the rolling stones and then when the rolling stones came on the scene the beatles at that point had influenced enough people that it was like cool another shaggy-haired british band coming over and they may have when they were young. Been a little threatened because young dudes get fucking threatened right. But i'm sure at a certain point pastor thirties or something. They're like we're cool. Like i don't i don't see these grown men like having a real field pay. I'm looking at it here. Yeah the sixty three three sixty five. Not many of these were famous So yeah you got jets.

VP Kamala Harris' Vietnam Visit Delayed by Possible Case of Havana Syndrome
"havana" Discussed on Ross Patterson Revolution!
"Is it my voice. Yeah it's kinda brown note to it. You don't say you don't say brown. What's what's brown. Not exactly what. We name the episode. It's the havana syndrome. Calling the brown. Note it's not what they're calling it. It's actually what it is so that frequency of sound like doing whatever it's doing is it. Allegedly elizabeth feels like lyme disease a little bit. Doesn't it do you have it. I don't know we talked about this a few years ago on the show in this first happened in guba where my spanish friends out there. You're welcome for proper pronunciation. Guba that i just gave you But in kouba our embassy members in there yeah they heard a sound or they didn't hear sound just went into their minds. That's the weird part about this question. Yeah do they hear it. No experiencing the symptom throw up. And then i think you have an all sixers that what you call the sixer. Oh you go number six. I are you going to full six four six on this one and the guys do a seven. Yeah what's the set with the seventh day. Come okay cool. but you. Women don't have seven period. Knows that's still a six okay. Both sexes can bleed. Got it from different places. Sure so that we add in there. The guys can come. Girls can do. The milwaukee milkshakes so they also have a breast milk component. That you guys don't Ghana technically everyone can do a seven. But just unless you're lactating duty mean girls are six or seven. You don't think you can just lactate later on in life. You know you can be up to keep it going if a weird moment or a sound like this. Hits you weird rights. If you got the havana syndrome and breast milk. Shot out of your body. Would you be shocked by that. Are you would okay. okay. I don't know and that's why i'm asking. Yes so you're welcome for that. Do you know about the havana. Here's here's what i know. I think i one hundred percents. This is real and there's been a lot of debate over the years of whether or not this is real and you can have these. Sonic sounds that would cause you to experience this type of thing. Some people claim that this is a conspiracy. Some people claim that it's real those people because they were interviewed on sixty minutes. They were super fucked up in a couple of mersal fucked up to this day from the havana incident. Right now. this one involved a vice president going over to she was in. Singapore headed over to vietnam to over. Hanoi i one hundred percent think that this is a real thing i think it's i think it's the next wave of technology if we can do it for dogs. Why couldn't we do this for humans. I think it's actually proven that they do do it though. It has not been proven yet. So that's the whole thing behind this so even with this with his incidents they're not even calling it by the havana's syndrome. Or whatever all the statement says this. And i'll read it word for word here early this evening. The vice president's traveling delegation was delayed from departing singapore. Because the vice president's office was made aware of a report of a recent possible anomalous health incidents in hanoi vietnam after careful assessments. The decision was made to continue with the vice president's trip. The delegation will leave. Singapore tonight arrive in hanoi vietnam. So they're not naming any of this by name or anything else. This is pure speculation at this point. This has been a leak of some sort. That just says the reason. Why isn't because of cova. Because when you read this statement word for word this sounds like a kovic to me where it was like all right somebody may or may not have covert when you're using the exact phrase of health incident in today's world that means covert nuts brown sound brown note or whatever the fuck is right like brown. Sand is my podcast. So brown sounds is gonna be your practice. But that's what gives me hesitation of this of like. Oh all right well. Are we ever going to say this is a real thing and we're not going to say this is a real thing because this is going to be. This might be a heavy conspiracy episode. I don't really do conspiracies this. I actually happen to believe in. And i think this is real now. Obviously when this happened in havana. Cuba jesse i. Where did they denied it. The government tonight. It's and they were saying it was coming from. Russia had originated in russia by using these sound frequencies to do this type of shit to people whatever rights. They've everyone has denied this so far. Which obviously makes me think that it's real and i. I think it's a smart. I think it's smart effective way to paralyze people not fucking get into an all out. War shocks me. I guess is. Why is this happening. More and like battlefields and shit. So for instance a hemp lay jacobs with with what's going on in afghanistan now like gave all of our troops and some citizens earplugs or whatever the fuck it was could prevent this. Can you knew the other side with these sound waves and then be done with. It is a more effective way of war. Or let's say riots. For example i mean instead of using nina ak rubber bullets. Would you ever deploy this and be like well trying to play the sound really loud to the fucking thing all of our police officers and everybody in in riot gears already prepared for this. They've got their headphones on. Fuck this there are acoustic weapons that they use on crowd control and stuff. What are they Just google. They're basically like sound cannons. Oh come and they deliver loud. Sounds over long distances. It's used for crowd control. It's just noise. it's so this is something you would hear. You would actually here and it would drop you this. Yeah right so in the video game like scenario that you're describing it wouldn't happen right away so it's not like they dr- i mean. It looks like they develop this these symptoms after it happens. So it's like pressure in their head. Sounds like a storm of cicadas. They suffer from nausea nausea fatigue and have trouble remembering things so and ear pain so like look. That doesn't drop somebody..

What what's the current situation between cardi in puerto. Rico ricard well. I don't know that it has changed in any way The cuban government is very committed to working with its partners per node required. And as far as i know that by the administration's not taken any steps to To back the the the lawsuit that acade- has filed so we we're still at a standstill. There i was curious about how much the cuban people themselves know about this rivalry. Do you have a sense that everyday cubans persons on the street are aware of this battle. I'm certain that they are completely unaware. I do think they have very strong opinions about rum. And in particular havana club as they have experienced it on the island. But they know anything about this Really would be impossible. It'd be the cuban government has very little transparency with regard to its own budget and its own income of or the states expenditures. So you know something like this will not make headlines unless it's a politically expedient so if they are to win their battle then i assume you know it'll be all splashed all over the the national newspaper but until then nothing well for our listeners and perhaps others who are joining us fresh In one corner you have per. No claiming havana club must be made in cuba than in the other corner. There's bacardi who says they can make it in puerto rico since they have the recipe history and cuban family identity on their side. We're talking about the founders in this case in your mind who has the real stuff. I think it's very interesting to say that my knowledge of cuban rum and whereby be produced. It comes from the island and in cuba. When havana club started becoming a regular item. On display and dollar stores stores it sold to foreigners and in hotels cubans were convinced that it was not being made properly because they weren't using the old barrels that are still out in audience. In which is the far eastern province and they were using metal barrels and distillery. You know that was relatively recently acquired in two modern so that there was no way that what was being replicated. There in cuba would resemble You know the the real stuff to that. Argument is not on the table here. Between these two companies they are both focusing all the different points of view but one is focusing on the recipe and the other is focusing on the ingredients and the location and neither company are talking about how the room is actually aged And what kind of equipment is being used. My sense is that the really old barrels that are in the oldest distilleries that were used by the bucket. Family have nothing to do with the creation of this savannah club and those are being used for another government label that is mostly only available on the island is extremely popular because it is so good and that that label is santiago. W-we So you have to buy it again for hard currency in dollar stores or in hotels and tourist facilities but it is mostly consumed locally and it is widely enjoyed. I mean it's also my favorite rum of all those available ooh you you anticipated my next question but i want to clarify something here. Are you suggesting that the real stuff is defined by the barrels that they're they're aged cubans would say that is true That you know the first of all the barrels were talking about that. The family used in the nineteenth century and through most of the twentieth century were made out of cuban mahogany and that has a particular Density to it and it's one of the hardest woods in the world So those trees that were used to to build these or to construct these barrels. You know where three hundred year old trees two hundred year old trees in warmest And they're still available. You could still see them. In certain pockets of forest in both seneca in an audience in the mountains so that either cubans have very strong connections. Iceland cubans have very strong connections to To these kinds of icons of their identity. The mahogany that these barrels are made out of seems to have a particular has cachet. We can say. Well it's it's clear why this is such a fight certainly from the cuban side because as as we were saying earlier. This is a big part of cuban history cuban identity You know what what is real. What is legitimate. I mean all of these questions are coming into play. What does it mean to be cuban in a sense. But i wanna get back to something you were saying to your palate. You prefer the stuff made in cuba. Let's talk about tastes. The ricard havana clubs pretty hard to find in the us. Because of the embargo. And i would imagine you have been able to try both versions Yes yeah you tell. Tell us a little bit about the distinctions.

And you learn about what it takes to be a surfer in cuba and you also follow them as they try and take steps to legalize the sport in their country and the journey takes them ultimately all over the world. but most of what's important is right there in cuba even though the story is about cubans with a particular passion seeing aluminum for me. It was felt like an opportunity to see cuba after so many years of not being on the island of seeing people cubans going about their daily lives. I assume that you are not in any way shape or form. Latin american or cuban for that matter. So how did you end up landing on the story. How did you get to cuba. How did this happen gory. Speaking you are correct in your assumption that we are not latin american and when we began the film. We didn't speak any spanish at all. I'd always had a fascination with cuba.
