'2000 Mules' Has Blown Up... And It's Making Fox News Look Horrible

"My documentary 2000 mules has broken out into the political and cultural mainstream. It's now become kind of unstoppable. In fact, today, at the European Union, a group, I think there are Dutch members of parliament. They have announced a screening of the movie followed by a discussion of the worldwide worldwide problem of election fraud. Yesterday, The Washington Post published a in depth and I mean in depth conversation a Q&A, it was kind of a feisty conversation. It involves actually a guy who's kind of obsessed with this issue. Philip bump, the national correspondent for The Washington Post. He's written like 6 articles about it. And he finally, well, I invited him to do a debate, and he said, well, I don't know about a debate, but maybe we can do a point counterpoint in exchange in The Washington Post. We talked for about an hour on Monday and I didn't expect him to publish the whole conversation, but he did. And it's awesome. I mean, when I printed it out, 23 pages long, so it's thousands of words. And as I was reading it, I was obviously focusing on the content. To be honest, I think he kind of got me, but that's not the reality. You could read and figure it out for yourself. Tomorrow, by the way, I'm going to do an in depth and discussion of that article and some of the other so called refutations. Of the movie. But as I was reading it, I was thinking to myself, you know, here is a movie that's being discussed, AD nauseam in The Washington Post, and yet it has not been mentioned on Fox News. So I think all of this is starting to, well, it's making Fox News look

"I think a lot of I think a lot of the, you know, at a certain point, I think we reach a place where, you know, listen, I don't need any more character. Life can take it easy on me now. And so I think I had a lot of the grit again just rural Tennessee and especially rural Tennessee where I was, I mean, I wasn't in the absolute deep, deep, deep, deep, deep Woods, but in the 70s and Tennessee where I was out by Hendersonville and gallatin, not like it is today. There was not a whole lot around. So I had quite a bit of what we would call character building and grid just growing up in a single parent home. By the time I got to Los Angeles, the LA part was just trying to build a career in an exceedingly difficult profession where I didn't have I didn't have any nepotism. I didn't have anything, I didn't show up here with anything on my side for lack of a better phrase. Yeah. Well, national was a totally different city back then in the 70s than it is now. I mean now it's the home and hard of a lot of productions, both movies and radio and television. That was not happening way back then in the same way. Now it's Nash Vegas. First of all, it's the number one bachelorette weekend destination in the south. It's number one, even more so than Atlanta. And number two, I mean, yeah, my mother was a country singer, but there's a very famous train station Alan in Nashville called union station that actually country songs have been written about it. It's beautiful. They refurbished it. When I was in high school, it was boarded up in dilapidated. So yeah, you didn't go past, you didn't go past 20th or 21st street towards first street to downtown. When I was a kid or you were looking for trouble and that would be just past Vanderbilt. So it's a very different city now, yes. Yeah. As I say right now, I mean to Nashville and there are many areas that you would stay out of. I mean, it's a totally grown up city and it's safe. It's prosperous. It's really become uptown. Whereas it used to be a hole to begin with. You are correct. There were distinctly places you did not go. That is correct. And now it is. It's just, it's just blown up in the last 15, 20 years. Unbelievable. Yeah. For sure. So do you remember any stories along the way that you can tell the audience? About that journey? Several of them depends on which ones we can allow on air. No, I think we, when we tend to use the word journey, doctor leica, we, a lot of times, as a country that we're very result oriented and I respectfully understand that certainly as an athlete, your result oriented, taking tests where result oriented, and so when we look at journeys, sometimes we wind up just looking at the end of like, oh my gosh, that person is so and so they've gotten to it doesn't matter what industry it is. And so when I tend to look at some of those years, I tend to look back at some of the moments when I should have looked at myself and gone, what the hell are you doing? And one of the key ones for me would have been what I chose to go to Atlanta for two years. I won an event in New York. And I could have gone to New York, but similarly, New York back then, Manhattan back then is not the Manhattan you see today. I mean, people who have not seen Times Square from a perspective of the early 80s to where it is today, Times Square was a place after one or 2 o'clock in the morning, you would just get killed. And so I had been there and for this event and as a guy who grew up in the rural south and who also was a golfer, I didn't really see myself hanging out in Manhattan trying to haul my sticks on the subway somewhere to go play golf. So I chose Atlanta, but I also went to Atlanta with a very old car, $200 in my pocket, and the only person that knew I was coming was the gal who was to be my agent. So I had to I slept in my car for three days in this abandoned Sears parking lot. That is in really upscale Buckhead at the time. It was just this big abandoned building. And it was kind of downhill and there was behind the building thing and I thought, oh, that seems safe. And I literally slept in my car for three days, and then my agent had a client that was in the catering business. And she had a couple of kids that they had moved out. She was an empty nester. And she was kind of a whack a doodle. She might have been kind of a functioning alcoholic. She was funny. And she didn't live that far down peachtree. And I rented a room from her for $50 a week. For about 6 or 7 months and then one of her neighbors was a lawyer and he knew somebody who worked at this really fancy restaurant downtown and he helped get me a job. And once I had a job for 6 or 7 months, I had enough money to finally move out and get my own place. So that's the beginning of a journey right there. That is the beginning of a journey and how did you get motivated? A lot of things were stacked against you. You know, a lot of things, you know how many actors try and never meet their dreams. How did you stay motivated during that process? You know, that becomes the intriguing part about that question for me, which ironically, I've asked a number of people on my own myself. Is we get into the we go the direction in my opinion of nature versus nurture. And I'm someone who believes, I don't think that it's 50 50 personally as a guy who was almost a psychology double major. I do believe we're a little more nurture than we are in nature personally. I think our environment of how we grow up has a little bit longer lasting effect on us and maybe the nature part of us remains a little more a little more hidden, but not always. I think that the way I grew up with just a sister and a mother who was not home very much and was sort of a latchkey kid who learned a lot on his own and had to grow up pretty fast. I think there was just a nurtured part of me that quitting wasn't really in my vocabulary. I don't know if you want to put words to something like that such as stubborn or cocky or defiant or I don't know. It doesn't much really matter. Even just going to the event that I went to in New York that I won, we didn't have any money for me to go to that. I literally had to go around and raise the money to be able to even go on that trip and when I wanted and that's a trophy that sits right

What Did Robert Hanssen Get Out of Being An Evil Russian Spy?

What Did Robert Hanssen Get Out of Being An Evil Russian Spy?

"We are talking to Lee's wheel. You probably know her. Remember her from Fox News and many other prominent places talking about many things kind of like this, but nothing can top this. She has a brand new book out called a spy in plain sight. The inside story of the FBI and Robert Hansen, America's most damaging Russian spy. It really is nightmarish. And I always say, Lee's that, you know, apart from my faith in God, I don't know how to process this. I think you would just be frightened at how evil the world is, how dark it is. I have to ask you the most basic question. What do you suppose that Robert Hansen got out of this? In other words, it's kind of a funny thing. I always feel that these traders sell themselves extraordinarily cheaply, you know, that China has billions of dollars to spend. And if there's anybody out there willing to kind of give them a leg up here or there, what was Russia giving this man? And again, we want to be clear. This wasn't Russia. This was the Soviet Union, as wicked as it gets. The evil empire, what were they giving him to make him feel that it was worth his doing this because he could have made a decent job doing the right thing. What were they giving him? Right, exactly. Cash. I mean, they were giving him bundles of $30,000, $10,000, $50,000. At one point he asked for diamonds, they gave him diamonds. And he had a cash flow problem, right? Because you can't put more than $10,000 in cash into a bank without alerting all sorts of things. So he would just honestly put it in a drawer. He put it under the bed. And in fact, Eric, one time when he had the cash in the drawer, Bonnie, his wife, saw the money in the drawer. It was like a sock drawer or something, you know, basic drawer like that. She pulled out the money, sees all this cash. She confronts him. This was early on in his spine, confronts him. She thinks it's money for a mistress because he's got he's done that before. Say that again, money from what? We're a mistress from mister. Oh, because he had cheated on his wife. Right. So she thinks that she confronts him. He says, oh, no, no, Bonnie. I'm not cheating on you. This is just money that I got from the Russians for spying. That was better or something. But he did say that to him. Yes, no, he admitted it to her. And then they, but here Eric, here's a twist. It go to their priests. That's what body his wife wants to do. They go to the priest, the priest basically says, oh, that was bad. Don't do that again. It's fine, that is. And you can be absolved from it if you just give them money that you've already made to the church. Which Hanson does, and he doesn't spy for a little bit, and then he starts up again. But the idea that a priest would say that, that basically, hey, you know, don't do that again, that's bad, but you know, it's all okay if you give the money to the church. And that, of course, you know, Bonnie was okay with

Lis Wiehl Shares the Intriguing Tale of 'A Spy in Plain Sight'

"We have a really exciting guest talking about a very exciting book and subject, exciting, depressing, amazing. I don't know where to begin. You probably already know my guest. Lee's wheel, maybe you saw her over the years on Fox News or on CNN or any place just a prominent legal mind federal prosecutor on and on and on. It goes, and she has now written a book. I got to tell you, it's nothing less than shocking. It's titled a spy in plain sight. The inside story of the FBI and Robert Hanssen, America's most damaging Russian spy, remember the Cold War folks. Remember when we were at war with the Soviet Union, they were a superpower in those days. And there was somebody on the inside. It just, it's one of the most amazing stories ever. A number of books have been written about it. This is being called the best of them all, a spy in plain sight Lee's wheel. Welcome to the program. Eric, it's great to be with you. Thanks so much for that kind introduction. Well, I tell you, when I read originally about Robert Hansen, it was one of these things, it's out of a movie. It's a nightmare that somebody would be this deeply embedded in our FBI working for our enemies. Today it would be, you know, working for China. But give us the background for people who don't remember the details, the timing, the years, the decades, so that we have some sense of who this monster Robert Hansen was. Yeah, and you've got it right. He really is a monster. I mean, finally, he's locked up now forever. So he's in a 24 hour or 23 hour solitary confinement and Florence Colorado in a supermarket, a super max. But started, you know, kind of an unremarkable upbringing. He was a middle class in Chicago, his father was a cop, kind of trying to tough on him. I mean, really tough on him. We'd call it child abuse now. But he grew up, became an accountant and then joined the FBI, which was really the Pinnacle for him. You know, it was just the thing that he wanted to be. He admired James Bond. He wanted to be everything, James Bond. So the enters in the early 80s into the bureau. And Eric within a year of entering the FBI, he approaches the Russians. They don't have to flip him. He approaches them. He doesn't tell them who he is, but he says he has this great Intel information for them. And indeed, it is the first thing that he's gives them is the identity of our major the primo Russian asset that we had at the time on the ground. And of course, we rely on those people to give us information from you said it, China, North Korea, Russia. He was at the very top level of the counter espionage unit in the

The EU to Provide Financial Aid to Ukraine Military

"The European Union agreed Sunday to provide some 500 million Euros in arms and other aid to the Ukrainian military. From Politico, so there are two ways of looking at it. Why are we giving $40 billion in their giving $600 million? So if I can round it down a little bit and it makes it easier. They're giving half a billion and we're giving 40 billion. That's 80 times more. That's easy. Why? On the other hand, to be fair, the EU's treaties bar the block from using its normal budget to fund operations with military or defense implications. So this is a first for the European Union. For the first time ever the EU will finance the purchase and delivery of weapons and other equipment to a country that is under attack,

A Student's Education Should Not Be Trapped by Their Zip Code

"You should not be trapped by your zip code into the education system that you're going to get. And I know that's and actually, you know where that's grown as you well know is growing the most and for the podcast listener. The area where that thought is growing the most is in your poor inner city schools. And actually, it is shown to work. And for those of you who out there who just believe, oh, we just need to throw more money at education. I just give you the city of Atlanta, which has the highest, one of the highest, if not the highest per student spend rate in the state of Georgia, but some of the lowest test scores and before you tell me it's about demographics and other things, you have private charter schools that are running simultaneously within two miles of the same school, the same demographic of kids the same issues, but yet are producing graduates that go on to flagship universities where it's just down the road. The difference is I think the motivation and the teachers and how they interact with these students. So it's not all just about the money, which is what the teachers unions want to share with this

Aaron Withe on the Awakening of Parents vs School Boards

"Just amazing over the last year and a half to see the reaction of a normally isolated insulated board if you would the board of education and many of these districts who were finally in many ways confronted the first time over actually what they do in the reaction that those boards had. Yes, I mean, the teachers unions, they elect a lot of these school board officials. And when I say they elect him, I mean that they fund them and they make sure that they get elected. They make sure they do get out the vote campaigns and all that type of stuff to ensure that their school district school board member gets elected to the school board. But we've never seen an uprising before from your everyday parent to go into these school boards and actually hold them accountable. It's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen probably the best thing that I saw come out of COVID was the parents awakening to what was happening in their kids classrooms. Because we've known it's been bad for a long time, but it's never been at the forefront of these parents, but yeah, it was amazing to see them go in and rallied at the school board meetings. It was amazing to see them turn around and say, no, at kids should be in school. We shouldn't be teaching them remote learning.

How Can We Harness the Power of Good Teachers? Aaron Withe Explains

"In that ideological war, if you would and I don't know a better way to call it, you know, this prevailing view of what's being taught. He who controls the teacher controls the classroom in this. How are we going to use the power of those teachers who are the ones like your wife and mine when she was teaching in others who simply want to go and teach kids, but they're being controlled now. And I'm bringing this nexus in. Because it's now so overt with the teacher unions, the federal Department of Education, you know, your CDC, they got brought into this because of the pandemic. How is that going? How are we going to break that nexus? Maybe that's the question for you. How do we break that nexus? Well, first of all, I think that it is a small minority of teachers that are actually activists in the classroom that are going out and actively pursuing critical race for an actively going out and trying to teach about transgenderism and all that type of stuff in the classroom. Most teachers get into teaching today because they want to teach kids. They enjoy teaching kids math, learning to read and write. That's the reason they're getting into the classrooms. We had the freedom foundation speak to thousands of teachers every week. We host teach a round tables. We go and visit them at their homes. We have several phone calls coming into our office every day from teachers. And most of these teachers don't agree with the union's agenda, which involves this critical race theory, and again, teaching about transgenderism. The teachers actually want to go in and teach what is right. And that's why we're seeing a large amount of teachers leave their unions. Both teachers unions, those two large ones, the AFT that I mentioned before, and the NEA, the national education association, both of those unions saw net 2% declines in membership in 2020.

And that is this education issue, the education, the problems that are developed during the pandemic, not only are we going to see those. We're going to have a chance to have some conversation about that today. But also the inexorably role are extraordinary role of the unions. The teacher union, especially during the pandemic and the things that they have been going into. And as we've been going around teacher appreciation week and always talking about our teachers, do you know that's close to my heart for the podcast listeners here? My wife was a 30 year teacher in public schools, retired unfortunately during the pandemic year. Her last class with her students was the day everything quote shut down for two weeks, and she never really got back to go back to the class to tell that class goodbye. But there's a lot that goes on in that. And so today, I'm pleased how Aaron wath with us from the freedom foundation is a CEO. We're going to talk about education.

Is Biden on the Verge of Losing Hispanic-Black Base?

"Interim, we've been doing some research here about the black and Hispanic voting base, there's an article here from Paul bedard, Washington secrets columnist for the Washington examiner. It's headlined. Biden on the verge of losing Hispanic black base. So there's some new polling that's out of McLaughlin and associates, which is a GOP polling firm. But they are very good at what they do. So, you know, the pieces of fairly good job here in Paul bedard is a great columnist with the examiner. But starting at a former president Trump, we started seeing this erosion of the blue collar Hispanic and black voters. Now, much ink has been spilled much cable time has been devoted to the erosion of the white working class base. This is the if you want to say it's a JD Vance voter in Ohio and West Virginia, Indiana, in the Midwest, right? These are the former union die hards that would vote Democrat, the blue dot Democrats, but they would stick with the Democrat party. We saw that erosion with Trump. Now, much has been made of that move. But what's happening right now is I would call it a tectonic political realignment and we're seeing it because blue collar working class Hispanic and black voters are starting to trick, not even trickle, but to gush says Bernard. Giving Republicans not only a good chance, but a probable, likely slam dunk chance in both the houses of both houses of Congress to quickly lock down their own ruling

People like Dewey, they were on a crusade, and they have up till now, succeeded. Yes, they have. And you know what? They didn't know what the destination would be, per se. They just knew where the destination was away from. So it was always progress away from the western Christian paideia, the biblical roots of our and free thinking roots of the nexus of Athens and Jerusalem. They wanted to move away from that. That was progress. So you say conspiracy, that's not a wrong term. We use plot or heist because they passed it off to the next group of radical thinkers who carried the ball down the field based on how much God and other basic values have been stripped away. So enter the Frankfurt school, enter critical theory, which where did it land? A hundred blocks from here at Columbia University at the teacher's college. And these are marxists who fled Hitler while our boys are fighting over in Europe and World War II. And they are greeted with open arms with their radical views soon to infuse into the teacher's college. And within a couple of decades, one third of teachers in America at elite schools had been taught by the critical theorists of the Frankfurt school. So how do you get critical race theory in your zoom classroom? It is in the curriculum and the pedagogy of how the entire educational industrial complex works. And when you unravel it all, it goes back to those early efforts and each step which we lay out the unions, which used to be conservative teacher associations that ended up scripture to teachers to use in the classroom, captured by the unions. Well, then the unions create the Department of Education in a giveaway to Jimmy

Chris Farrell and Sebastian Discuss the Deep State

"Now there's a double whammy here because in the beginning, it would be big enough challenge for legacy national security architectures like the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, to suddenly switch targets and say, okay, it's not the Soviet Union, but we have to deal with cultural marxists who are American in America trying to undermine America. That would be hard enough because that's like trying to get a, you know, an ocean liner to become a catamaran. But then there's the double difficulty when these institutions are captured by those self same neo Marxist next gen leftists, clearly, or at least when people like Mark milley or Christopher at the FBI parrot, the verbiage for people. Correct. And this is going to sound almost too personal, but I mean, so I'm going to say it anyway. There are two stupid to know the difference. They are so intellectually unpack that. That's really important. That's really important. And you have to know enough to be able to ask the question. And so when you choke down wholesale, the garbage put out by the 1619 Project. That white rage in America is founded on racism. And so the starting point is, yes, that's the starting point. Matt, well, what are you talking about? What does the foundation for what you're let me unwind your argument and really prove or disprove? And when you have Howard zinn of all people and his history book is probably the de facto go to history book in three quarters of the country's high school. The people's history, the Marxist lensed people's history of America. So that's your starting point. And you've brainwashed these people into believing, oh, I'll give you another great example. This is very superficial, but it's impactful. Since when are Republicans read that a vest is a bugbear for me. So let's unpack that. If you go back to Reagan's landslide victory and you look at all the news reporting, you show that they show the entire country blue, except for Wisconsin. I think it's Wisconsin. Yeah. Which is red because mondale wins his home state. But the red is always the color of the left. Every country of the globe.

Jeff Bezos in Hot Water Over Amazon's Labor Practices

"Let me turn to Jeff Bezos because I would just say that this is once again emblematic emblematic of the hypocrisy that you so often see on the left. Jeff Bezos might, in fact, even be kind of more of a hypocrite than anyone thought. I mean, this is pretty wild. He's out there super liberal, runs in The Washington Post, or owns it, I should say. And he is in hot water now because he's not okay with unions. His company, Amazon, has just been caught firing employees that were responsible for creating a union in one of his biggest shops. Think about that. I mean, it's kind of amazing, right? Amazon gets rid of these guys because, well, one would have to assume they're saying it's job performance, but one would have to question why they got rid of them in a time like this when these were the guys that were responsible. Of course, for the creation of a union in their shop. Company doesn't want a union, and while look, I get it, and I can understand why management maybe doesn't want one, the reality is this. You know what? You can't do that. Jeff Bezos. She can't do that, Amazon. You can't fire people for trying to start a union at your company. And yet, well, we don't know. I suppose this will go to a much higher level, but it doesn't seem good. The employees themselves say they were fired for organizing the shop that resulted in the company's first unionized warehouse in the United States.

"To other bars can stay open, nail salons can stay open, clubs can stay open, but churches have to remain closed. So religious freedom has now become an ambiguous issue in America, voter integrity. Yeah, there's been voter integrity problems in India for a long time. Now there are voter integrity problems in America. Going after political opponents. That's true in India to some degree. It's now true in America to a large degree. So I think the point here is that America needs to get off its high horse and these times because we're no longer the champions of the free world. We're no longer the champions of a human rights. There's just as much if not more violations of human rights going on right now in this country either in many other places in the world, including India. I want to talk about an illuminating double standard that is going on with Disney that demands a little bit of closer scrutiny. Now, Disney sprang into political activism recently in opposing Florida's Bill, this is a law in Florida signed by governor desantis. It basically says you can't have sexually explicit instruction in schools for very young children. These are children in the first or second or third grade. Yeah, you can have sex education in later grades, but not at this very young age, and the underlying assumption behind the law is that the responsibility for any sexual instruction at all that occurs at that age is with the parents and not with the school. Now, Disney, somewhat oddly moved into the full oppositional mode against this Florida Bill, it's outrageous, and children are being censored from discussing these issues. Now, in reality, they're not children can discuss anything that they want among themselves. We're talking about a prohibition on the administration and the teachers, not a prohibition on the children. But nevertheless, nevertheless, this parent's rights bill in Florida is wrongly depicted as a kind of anti gay Bill. Don't say gay is the big slogan that's being bandied about on the left. But an interesting article has come out that says that Disney was perfectly willing to comply when China demanded that all mention of a gay character be removed from a Harry Potter movie. Hollywood said, okay, no problem. We'll do it. No objection, whatever. No, no big outcry, no Disney using its power to fight back against China, Disney kind of humbly goes along with it. So let's hear the details and I'm picking this up right from one of the Hollywood magazines. It's called variety. References to a gay relationship in fantastic beasts, a secrets of Dumbledore were edited out of the movie by Warner Brothers for the film's release in China. So apparently what happens here is the author J. K. Rowling has revealed a Dumbledore, one of the kind of beloved characters was gay. She reveals this in 2009, but previous earlier Harry Potter movies had made no reference to this at all. Until this fantastic beasts movie came along and in that there's apparently some dialog about a romantic past that is alluded to between Dumbledore, a male character, played by Jude Law, and grindelwald, which is played by this guy named Mads Mikkelsen, and China was like, we're not having it. We don't really want an engaged stuff going on here. Take it out. And so these lines about these two being in love and they fell in love the previous summer, gone, gone from the film. And all that's now implied is that Dumbledore and grindelwald are like good friends. They've just had a, you know, they just had a really close bond for a long time. Now, when asked about this, the Warner Brothers people basically made a statement to a variety, and they said that, you know, we, yo, we made the katsuya, we kind of did a little bit of self censorship, but quote the spirit of the film remains intact. So our main story is okay, so we didn't mind making this kind of an accommodation for the Chinese. And that's what I want to ask about is, which is this. You know, most cultures in the world are traditional. I'm not entirely surprised that the Chinese have these reservations about these kids movies that have all these themes. I think that if you went to traditional people anywhere in the world, they would have the same concerns. What these cultures are trying to do is keep a certain moral and social degeneracy from penetrating their cultures and seeing their culture is going to the kind of freefall that we've seen in the west and in the United States. And but what Disney appears to be doing is saying in effect, listen, we don't mind these effects occurring in our culture here. In fact, we're going to actively promote them. But we're going to go along with the effects with the attempts of other cultures, particularly China and known, notice that China has a giant potential film market. So Disney's motives here are partly commercial. It's like, wow, we stand to make a lot of money in China. So as a result, yeah, we can fight this, but the Chinese may then just get angry and say, listen, no Hollywood movies in China, we're just going to have Chinese made movies and look, we'll contact independent film producers in other countries while happy to conform to our requirements. So Hollywood is behaving itself when it comes to China. And by the way, this isn't just Disney. We see this with the NBA. So we see this with sports franchises, entertainment franchises, all of them are longingly greedily looking to make money in China. And so the Chinese comfortably dictate the terms, the Chinese are in the driver's seat. But here in America, these companies are woke. And they push their work politics in a manner that, as I say, they aren't trying to do in other parts of the world. At least parts of the world that are pushing back. And so that must mean two things. One, it means that Disney is really not afraid that conservative parents, so I'm going to stop going to Disney because if Disney thought that half the country is going to not patronize Disney, stop going to Disneyland, not watch Disney movies, then they would think twice about doing this because that is a big part of their market. So they must not fear the activism of the right. And the second reason is that Disney must think that their economic future has less to do with commanding the lion's share, which they have had of the American market and more to do with commanding a lion's share of the market abroad and specifically in China.

But people around them are, but you know, sometimes sometimes I do think that they do this on purpose. It's just, you know, I can't imagine that anybody would do something like this and think that it's okay or they're not worried about the next election or whatever because it just seems like they are not. I mean, when that way Jen Psaki is kind of the perfect robotic representative of the administration or sort of shrugging of her shoulders. It's almost like she can't comprehend about you know what it reminds me of. It reminds me of the posts by your childhood friend in Venezuela where you've got does that people are eating out of trash cans and you've got people starving and people desperate and they're sort of if you watch the Facebook postings of WWE's former friend, you get the sense of what's everybody getting upset about.

Egged on by the media, the Biden administration is unnecessarily antagonizing the Government of India, which has been a close ally of the United States. And the reason for this new campaign of denouncing India is basically because India is not going along with the Biden administration in its position on Ukraine. So Biden has arm twisted a bunch of countries, mostly European countries, but some others also to approve all these sanctions and the sanctions also involve not buying oil from Russia, not doing trade deals with Russia and certainly not buying weapons from Russia. But India has an ongoing weapons deal with Russia. In which the Indians have agreed to purchase S 400 missile defense systems from Russia. And India has been continuing with that transaction, which actually dates back for a couple of years. So it's not something in the newly agreed to do. But the Indians aren't willing to stop doing it. The other thing that the Indians aren't willing to stop doing is follow America's lead and stop buying oil or from Russia. Now let's remember that India and China are perhaps the two well the two largest countries in the world, but they're also two of the fastest growing countries in the world. And they're coming up from the bottom. They're coming up from positions in India's case of really almost scandalous worldwide by worldwide standards, poverty. So the Indians are like, we need the oil. And so since the Russians are one of the biggest oil producers in the world, and India does not have a whole lot of oil, we're going to continue buying it from Russia. So India's motives here are driven by self interest. India isn't even buying weapons from Russia in order to threaten the United States. India's worries have to do with Pakistan and have to do with radical Islam. And so India is trying to fortify its defense in those areas. But because India is not getting on the bandwagon. It's not saluting. It's not playing the game. You got this sudden turn on India and criticism of India and what I find interesting is that the Indians, instead of just taking it, are actually pushing back. Here is the Indian external affairs minister, his name is S ja shankar. And he was at the fourth U.S. India ministerial dialog at the State Department. And instead of just being humble and saying, you know, yeah, you know, what are the guilty party? And of course, that allowed these media reports suddenly popping all the human rights violations in India and so on. So India is being sort of castigated across the board. And this guy basically goes, well, if Americans are concerned about the human rights situation in India, he goes, we Indians are concerned about the human rights situation in America. Take that. So having said that, the Indian administrator kind of backed off a little bit and said, look, you know, the areas we can cooperate with the Americans and the areas we might disagree, but it's all within a framework of that this is a normal way that countries deal with each other. But I thought it'd be interesting to look at what this man is saying because I think part of what he's saying is that at one time America could easily say things like, we have free speech in America. Whereas in India, if you criticize the government, the goons will show up to beat you up. But now that America can say that because we don't have free speech in America and in many respects it's far worse than in India. India, you may not be able to just explicitly criticize the administration, but in a whole bunch of other areas you can discuss topics like climate change, you can discuss all kinds of topics without getting banned, whereas in America you're banned. There are whole subjects that are put out of bounds, including, by the way, the open discussion of the Ukraine war. Religious freedom, at one point, Americans could say, well, you know what? There's all these kind of religious nationalist movements in India. There's a new kind of affirmation of Hindus, movement called Hindu and that is making it more difficult to be a Christian or to be a Muslim in India and there is a lot of truth to that. But the truth is also that in America now religious freedom is imperiled in all kinds of ways, not in parallel by one religion being preferred over another, but in peril by a radical secularism that tries to shut down religious expression, certainly excluded from the public square, and in some cases imposed discriminatory shutdowns that apply to churches,.

Another, I mean, this is also, by the way, a self inflicted wound by the Biden administration, because while for them, everything is the result of Ukraine, although many of these problems inflation was soaring before Ukraine. It's gotten worse since then. Gas prices were going up before Ukraine. Right. Or they apply, they seem to imply. Is that nice though, how they always find an excuse for everything? They either blame Trump for it or Ukraine or some other some other thing. It reminds me of my Dante series where everybody in the inferno, none of them ever did it. The envious didn't do it. Someone made them do it. The lustful didn't do it. Love made them do it. So this human very human tendency to avoid responsibility. But I mean, it's a little bit creepy when you have people who have this level of responsibility, not just for society, but to some degree for the world who appear to be so reckless with their use of power.

"Debbie and I are talking about the border crisis. And it seems like governor Abbott had sort of well, I don't know if you'd call it an naughty idea or a little bit of an in your face idea. But his idea was, listen, you know, if the Biden administration is importing all these people because they want him in this country, well, maybe they should have to deal with them directly. And so Abbott's idea and apparently the first Texas bus. Put the migrants in the bus. Now you can't force them. So it's the migrants who agree to go. Voluntarily, and the first bus drops them off blocks from the U.S. capitol building. Apparently Fox News found out that this particular bus of migrants came from the Del Rio sector, but there were people in there from Columbia from Cuba from Nicaragua from Venezuela. They apparently had all these wristbands, and so when they got there, the bus driver was like, let's cut off your wristband. You're free to roam the streets of D.C.. So I mean, this is kind of a nightmare. And I think Abbott is only doing what he can do within his limited jurisdiction to say, listen, you want him, you got him. Right. Well, did you hear Jen Psaki talking about it? She acted like, oh yes, it's great. It's a great idea. So I think that they're trying to play a little game here because they're wanting to pretend like it's not like it's a good thing. Even though they know it's bad for them, it looks really horrible. The optics are just awful. And the really funny thing is that this bus Abbott made sure that this bus dropped them off near the media stations like near Fox studios. Here's Abbott. So if they're not going to come to the border, I'm going to take the border to them. He's referring here to the D.C. politicians. Yes. Washington is going to have to respond and deal with the same challenges that we're dealing with. Have a taste of your own medicine. This is the effect of your policies. Now this is probably going to be I'm expecting challenged in court because the federal government is always said, well, you know, it's the federal government that makes immigration policy, not the states themselves. But here's the problem with that, they're not doing anything about it and the states are the ones that are taking in the brunt of it. So we have to, as a Texan, as Texans, we have to pay for this. The federal government is not paying for Texas, is, in a sense, importing these people into our own government. I mean, not our government. Our communities. Communities. And so we have to pay for it ourselves. Texas doesn't have the money to pay for all of these illegals. Well, I think the other thing is that if they had if the federal government was following the immigration laws, it would be one thing. But they're flouting the laws. They don't have the power to change the laws. So the laws exist, but they're not being followed. And so if the government goes to the court and says, you know, we, the federal government are in charge of carrying out the law, the court could say, well, you're not doing that. So the states of Texas. Why haven't they? Well, I think it's because there have been some cases. And in fact, judges have ordered the restoration of Trump's remain in Mexico policy. Yeah, so the problem here is that you have a jaw to issue as a ruling and the guy is sitting in a courtroom somewhere. And the Biden administration says, oh, yeah, you know, what we'll do that, but then they take weeks to carry it out, and they carry out half heartedly. So they're using the power of enforcement and the supposed discretion that goes with that to flout the law. It's really, it's very, it's very, very bad. And folks, I mean, you know, when you vote, you should know that this is the way that this administration and any Democrat administration is going to behave. They want these people. They want illegal immigration. So, you know, I mean, we have the power to stop them by pulling the lever for the other party. Well, the Hispanics themselves are in revolt. I mean, here's the latest look. This is a quinnipiac poll just out. Biden's approval rating. 33%. But look at his rating with Hispanics. 26%. He's actually lower with Hispanics than he is in the country as a whole. He's pulling badly with every group. In fact, his approval rating with 18 to 34 year olds is 21%. Lowest of any age group. Wow. So I think young people are on to him and Hispanics are on to him. So all of this is so it's almost like you're sort of heating water to a boiling point. And I think the boiling point is going to be the November election. I hope so. We certainly hope so because I hope so I hope people understand what they are voting for and why they vote this way is I have no idea why. I mean, we have a media that covers up for Biden that's hardly any reporting about all these things in the media. And so the news that you're getting day to today is not a reflection of what's going on. It's almost like you have to decode the news and you have to look for alternative sources of information this podcast being one of them where you get a sense of what's really going on. But it looks like the American people are getting the picture. And in a democracy, you know, ultimately it's up to the people to make their voices heard loud and clear. We certainly hope that that will occur this November. Who actually eats 6 servings of fruits and vegetables every single day. Well, who can realistically do that?.

"Been one of the chief purveyors of disinformation. They've been part of the Russia collusion hoax. In fact, one of the Atlantic writers, Franklin four, was the source of putting out all the lies that were concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign by this guy sussman by Christopher Steele. So the Atlantic were the not only the dupes, but I think the willing collaborators of these lies. And but this conference was in conjunction with the University of Chicago institute of politics and of course they trot out good old Barack Obama who can be always counted on. I mean, this is America's leading con man. I mean, there's competition, Stacey Abrams is in that competition, Hillary Clinton. There are others. But I think Obama owns the title. In part because he's able to kind of put that pompous expression and look to the left and he looks to the right. It's kind of his style. It was a little bit befuddling when it first came out in 2008, but of course by 2012 and later 2016, everyone had sort of seen through it. It's like the con man who was like fanning out the cards, take a look. Well, you know, we kind of know the routine by now. Well, let's look at Obama. And he's talking about disinformation and here he goes. It's something I grappled with. Imagine Obama grappling with disinformation. During my presidency, I saw it sort of unfold. And that's the degree to which information disinformation and misinformation was being weaponized. Well, let's start with, let's look at that. And analyze. I mean, you can realize how these people don't even think about words. How can information be weaponized? You can't be. Information is basically information. It's like the information contained in DNA or the information in an equation or the information of factuals to how do you weaponize information? Then there's disinformation and misinformation. And again, these are used as synonyms, but it seemed to me that there's a critical difference between these two. Namely, misinformation is if someone is misinformed, someone says something like, oh, you know, I thought you were in your 40s dinesh. I'm like, no, actually, I'm gonna be turning 61. You're misinformed. That's misinformation, but that's not disinformation. Now, of course, of the Indian government puts out some press release, falsely stating that I'm in my 40s for some nefarious purpose, presumably that would be official government propaganda and for that reason it could be counted as disinformation. But, you know, you find that people like Obama have now incorporated these words and kind of melded them together. I think ultimately, to cause confusion, let's continue with Obama. And he says, and we saw it, meaning Obama says we saw it this problem in his time, but I think I underestimated the degree to which democracies were as vulnerable to it as they were, including ours. So Obama miss underestimated how dangerous this misinformation and disinformation. Well, if disinformation can only come from the government, then the disinformation of the Obama administration must have been coming from him. From the Obama administration itself, who else could it be coming from? Is an ordinary citizen capable of producing disinformation? How? Now, misinformation is nothing as a word that basically means error. And how can error be by itself a threat to democracy? Because think about it. What you have in democratic politics and democratic politics are by definition messier than aristocratic or monarchical or even authoritarian politics because an authoritarian country is no argument is allowed. The people aren't even consulted, who cares what they think. And so, but in a democracy, people are fighting over. What is the truth? Which policies work better, and there are competing claims, factual claims, claims of interpretation, sometimes the facts are known, but many times they're not. Particularly in situations where you have something like COVID, which kind of springs on the scene and new virus of unknown origin, where exactly it came from. So naturally, people are going to propound all kinds of theories. Well, this would seem to be the normal give and take of democracy. When the left says as Obama does here, there's misinformation and disinformation. What is an example of this misinformation that's being put out on the right that is supposedly a danger to democracy? Even if the right says things that are wrong or turn out to be wrong, that doesn't inherently threaten democracy. That's merely misinformation, which presumably can be corrected with accurate information. I mean, the whole argument for free speech is that when you have a contest of truth and error, truth is going to win, because truth ultimately is nothing more than a verbal expression of reality. And so reality in this in the end is sorts itself, right? So if I say that if you stick your hand in the fire, it's going to burn you. That can't be misinformation because at some point, someone's going to stick their hand in the fire and they're going to go ouch, and reality turns out is accurately described by what I'm what I'm saying on the other hand, if someone denies it, they're providing misinformation, but if they stick their hand in the fire, they're going to have the same result. So this is the basis of the assertion that truth wins in the end. Obama doesn't seem to believe it. These are people who want to shut down their opponents. If there are my opponents can talk, I win. If my opponents don't get to organize, I win. If I can censor my opponents, I win. And that's the psychology that Barack Obama not only has articulates, but is now brought ultimately to the.

"How does the the ptolemies between the diaper party and the unions in the uk compared to other left countries around the world well It's much closer institutional terms. There was very few places in the world where the trade union movement has As it were institutional power within the labor party in the same way that he does in the uk having said that The idea that somehow left essential policies over the will to getting rid of trade union. Thinks you know no one no longer want to have anything to do with the trade. Unions is wrong because The trade unions provide A certain degree of ballast ideologically. They provide a certain number of workers for the policy at election. Time and also You know they still an ideological affinity. If you like between social democratic policies on trade unions in terms of you know the Support for the public sector so relationships are quite close then not perhaps it's questions they once were but certainly not the complete divorce so in recent years. Union membership has glowna banks but it's still significantly down over the past few decades. Dave impressions been in touch in the point of trade unions is always been to represent the interests of working people. They're required now as much as they ever were in a moment. We'll hear from the general secretaries the gm be union. I grady who leads the trades union. Congress and i asked her to explain what's unions exists to achieve team says. The umbrella organisations trade unions across the k. And together we represent people work and try and win better. Working lives pay at the safety. The stocks that matches are the only paying the in a workplace. If one person's gonna pull bloom it's them against the company but if everyone clubs together collectively then they'll be able to essentially bargain get better pain conditions and that sort of thing. That's the the origins of unique. It's you know how have we level up in balance of power at work so that people get treated with dignity and the best way is through a training in its the evidences said that peak arena trade union much more likely to get higher a more equal pay. Betsy conditions were quite family. Friendly hours safety training opportunities the things that really mattered to improve looking at the statistics. In the last couple of years the number of people in unions of upper bits overall the percentages of i mean. It's still if you go about twenty twenty five years. You're looking at maybe. A third of people in unions is now more like a quarter. But what what's the twins that you're saying that particular industries where more people are joining unions there. I mean clearly. I mentioned that membership of coal mining unions. It's not what it was thirty four years ago but what. What are the trends. Where where is the growth. you'll saying instead of unionized. workforce is some overall. we've seen growth for four years in a row now so we're growing. Thousands of people have taken during cancer. Nick have been turning to unions to protect my job security that pay and of course what's been reading from lhasa people's proper. Ppa in safety standards that were during this pandemic. So now you k white six point six million to that. In the last few years the unions out a bad press parties become a very political thing always always saying that labour in hops of the unions. This match oh fight for the leadership of you not going on which fills feels quite wet show and nineteen seventies and bearing sandwiches walkouts in burning braces and that sort of stuff which doesn't seem to have much to do with the modern day workforce. It's that is sort of a perception problem with unions. Well the press doesn't always much opinion. Sarah site because what we've seen in terms of opinion. Polls who said things like coca veracity index lead to people trust africa's going up while bunkers politicians and businesses have been going down. Don't take any question. John goodlettsville as well as new members on show. You're up to but you know. Many people fussed the people that we organized nurses health workers teaches firefighters. Those sorts of people. The population at knowledge puts a lot facing. And that's reflected in support the changing in his my thing people support our by. It's been suggested of light that this is a conservative government. It's gone further to the left. They're paying people's wages with furlough spending money though all over the place You know is this. Is this shift to the left. His i post johnson inviting you union leaders in for i assume it's sort of virtual bearing savage at the bible zoo. But what's the relationship like between this government and the unions. well we. we have pretty good access. And i'm really proud that we played a big role in designing the skiing got was around ten million livelihood side. It's peak that were being supported and also. I think we've been pretty right. That bob protecting jobs keeping money in people's pockets. The economy will recover much more quickly as people spend that money in local shops and businesses.

What president biden's done how ambitious he's been in terms of investing in new jobs to deal with these big challenges we're facing big disruptions like climate change automation you know. Trade deals way facing those challenges. Now and the government i think has got to put its money where its mouth is an invest indecent jokes in those parts of the country that desperately need the most image rather than tend to sort of try to protect that image of unions. Would you rather have the Sort of unions union leaderships focused on the jobs of millions of people in britain necessarily on kissed armas job. Or who's in the labor party.

"Could actually win when put before voters and as it happens conservatives had had made. What in retrospect looks like a major strategic error in the nineteen nineties by taking naturally would be a local issue a state level issue over. Who could get married and making through the defense of marriage. Act something that was in the federal code and thus the supreme court might have to take on as a constitutional question and and that's what allowed for the tidy resolution is that this could be settled by nine justices and not by our very messy state level political processes. Okay let's go back to a couple of the key points. The key moments that you mentioned new york state passed that marriage bill. In two thousand eleven obama reversed his position shortly thereafter. And there's kind of a distinction to be made. Sometimes people change their mind and sometimes they change their political position and occasionally they changed. Both obama was one of them. Another one. interestingly that you talk about a little bit later on is rob portman talking about why he was so important so rapport minutes in the spring of two thousand. Thirteen is the first marriage. Cases are headed to the supreme court and just a couple of weeks before he gives an interview to cnn and and writes in bed in some ohio paper saying that he had changed his position on the issue. He was always fairly moderate republican. Who is more interested in budget issues. Not a culture warrior but he'd been within the mainstream of his party on lgbt issues but he had a son who came out as gay and as he as he wrote rather movingly like back changed his views about not just gay rights issues but about what marriage meant from the perspective of a family member and it was a luster. Tive of the way in which i think. A lot of public opinion moved in this country. Which is you know. It was always the best predictor of of support for marriage for other gay rights issues. That the survey question. Do you have a coworker. Family member friend. Who's who's gay or lesbian. And you know when that. I got asa in the late. Nineteen seventies a number pretty close to zero. And now it's pretty close to one hundred and political opinions have moved alongside that but but portman ends up in the political sphere driving elite opinion not among his fellow republicans but among democrats because it becomes instantly impossible for a senate democrat to be to the right of a republican on this issue. And so what you see. Is that over the course of of just a couple of weeks. Basically every democrat in congress gets asked about this regularly and they all announced that they now support him sex marriage to who had some of the key people who reversed their position at that time on the democratic side of claire. Mccaskill is a great example of that cautious politician. Who comes from a conservative leaning state. She was perfectly fine up until that moment. It went from being that the politically safe place to be for a moderate democrat was opposed to same sex marriage and then immediately was on the other side of her then then she had to switch..

"The subject of policing is once again being hotly debated this week on through line, how police forces developed in the north and the south in the nineteenth century, and expanded their power in the twentieth century through from NPR The podcast where we go back in time to understand the present. States across the US are in their second straight week of protests over the killing of George Floyd by police officer. Many hope to see police reform. They have reached a hurdle though and that's often the police unions to talk about the role of police unions and the power. They hold over reforms. We have Booker Hodges Assistant Commissioner at the Minnesota. Department of Public Safety and let's bring in Rhonda Lord a Police Union, Labor negotiator former police officer and the former president of a statewide police union in Texas Ron Thank you so much for joining us. We'll thanks for having me. Me We're getting a lot of comments from lemon. Give you an example one listener tweets. It seems all other unions are under attack, but police unions only get stronger. What accounts for this and then Richard Tweets? The left is finally realising public unions make it very difficult to remove crappy employees teacher police. If you suck at your job, you got to find another job. These these questions Ron are kind of centered around what makes police unions different. I think, and could you answer that forest? Can we look back to? The history of police used to get the answer. We'll share in. The, always call it Kinda. The duck billed platypus of union. Union, but they don't look like other unions and there's a big reason for that because of the nineteen, Nineteen Boston police strike. It pretty much wiped out a unionization American till really into the nineteen sixties, they just said fraternal so. Ninety. Eighty five ninety percent of all the police in the United States do not belong to the NFL. They have one charter union and it's A. It's a small. So. The police were late getting into the labour firefighters. Had An international union nineteen eighteen asked all the public employee unions construction unions. You know. Some of those are a hundred years old, so please late to the game. They were used many times. strikebreakers picket lines. And so they didn't gravitate, and they tend to be conservative by nature, so their unions look different, but they're still just working people. They're blue collar. Working people who formed groups who have become apt it using the American political system. To increase wages in pay and for job security, so I not ashamed to be a policeman or representing the police, they can only do in increase their strength, or get their message out. It's all a legitimate nature. It's no different than people that are anti gun and pro gun, or you know free speech. Free speech in America everyone has a right to. Speak out on things of of of concern to their members. We got this tweet booker from Tracy reeler and she mentions what Ron just said about the fraternal order of Police Tracy says the police unions name the fraternal order of police is symbolic of the fact that it operates like an old boys club officers who speak up about bad cop behavior ostracized in this culture and I wanted to put this booker in the context of what we heard earlier from ally at the Marshall Project who was saying that oftentimes African. American cops don't want join leadership because they don't want to be part of that culture. Oh yes! I think there's there are some differences between African American officers and white officers regarding EU membership I mean me. the vast majority of my career I was in a union I was a union president. You know so? I? Didn't have some of those issues, but a lot of the other. People I. Know who are other organizations did have issues regarding how they didn't feel that. The union represented them or didn't defend them as strongly as they did. White officers so I. I I'm fully aware that that issue does exist within. Labor unions Ron it sounds like he wanted to respond to that as well well. That issue exists in America so you'd say I'm a seventy two year old white man who grew up in the south. Way I view. The world may be different than a black person. My chew grew up different, but men and women authors have different views about things Hispanic. I have different views or Asian or so. That's an in and out of itself. But you have to say. Policing in America is eighty five percent men. There has been no woman firefighter president that I'm aware of any fire pro union in America ever so so we look at it, and then we say yes, but they appear to be older. White men guess but. They're having democratic elections that black officers in America only about twelve percent of the police, so that's. Maybe nineteen so that's wrong, but. The police unions not hiring anybody. The city hires the city provides them recruitment and seeks cities where even worse off when it comes to female officers, there are less than about twelve percent of the police, which is half the number of Canada Australia and other European countries so. Saying that in a profession is eighty five percent men. And whatever sixty seventy percent white man that white men tend to gravitate up. Yes, but lots of officers don't become involved in the union. Lots of people don't run or don't participate so but win. The contracts are approved. I'm not aware of a single contract in America. That one hundred percent of the officers don't on the agreement. The council votes on the agreement, the Mare sons or the city manager sign it so. You're acting light. There's no democracy there is and and if you think there needs to be changed. Well. You can change it, but. I don't know how to change the dynamics of America that people have different views. On. Caller I WANNA get into change specifically Let me read you this email from Erin who says so. The Police Union prohibits strikes doesn't prohibit protesting. Why aren't honorable police protesting for internal reform? If nationwide police officers went on strike for internal reform, would the union fire the entire police force? My point is where is the collective voice from inside the ranks asking for more of themselves and and I'm I'll take this question to both of you, but let me begin with you, Ron. Because there's no question. I've been I've been a reporter for more than twenty years that when reforms proposed by city councils or by mayors, it is very often. The Police Union leadership that steps up in opposes that reform..

"I asked minister what to do if with all this news. You, get tired of praying. You get to stop having faith. To shut down today. If there is a god, she's not going anywhere. Because if there is God it learns from us to faith in the midst of prices, listen and subscribe to. It's been a minute from NPR. This is one A.. Headley, we're talking about the power of police unions, and how that strength can sometimes get in the way of reform I wanNA bring a few more voices into this discussion as we turn our attention to Minneapolis, specifically, Brent Williams is a correspondent with Minnesota Public Radio Brent Welcome. Thanks. And Booker. Hodges is the assistant commissioner at the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. It's good to have you booker. Thank you. We. Did get a a new bit of news. The head of the Minneapolis Police Department just told reporters he was withdrawing from contract negotiations with the Police Union. He says he will bring in an outside group to examine the process and identify hurdles to reform. Let's add that to a comment from a former police chief in Minneapolis J. Harto, who said that the Minneapolis Police Union is more powerful at this point than the city's chief and the mayor I wonder whether you agree with that brand. It would appear. That's the case again as chief Harto said and other chiefs before her. The Union wields a lot of power when it comes to win when they're trying to make changes in the department, the culture is very entrenched, and as with the current ahead of the the Union Bob Parole. He has been elected a couple of different times by the members of the police department. Those members have basically put their confidence and trust in Kroll to do the job to protect them from job conditions which they don't favor. And so commissioner broker you work outside of Minneapolis and Saint Paul. What have you noticed in terms of the relationship where you are between the police union end the police. Is it similar to what brand has described in Minneapolis? Think. The relationships in general with the unions by and large have been positive but there is some some room for some additional changes that need to be made in terms of how officers are are disciplined, but by and large, the vast majority of the relationships have been positive. The. Police Officers Federation is the Union that represents police officers in Minneapolis as you mentioned brand, president is Bob Crawl. He has come under fire for a number of things over the past few weeks, including his response to the killing of George. Floyd crow called George Floyd a violent, criminal and referred to those protesting in Minneapolis as terrorists. This is not the first time he's been called out. Out For this kind of behavior Crawley's at twenty nine complaints made against him, including complaints that he was using racial slurs Derek Shelvin. The officer who killed George Floyd had seventeen complaints filed against him. Let's take a listen to crawl himself. This is from twenty seventeen crow was asked about officer complaints against him in this clip was recorded by you brand and your colleague. John Collins for NPR news. I, you show me an officer that has never had a complaint thirty years and I'll show you know officer. That's what we call on the job, a load or a slug. That doesn't do anything. If you if you show me officer that has a lot of investigations. And all of them turned out to be false. You'll find that that officer is and been that officer on the witness stand before when the numbers come in in lawsuits and things like that. And when you're making eight times, the contacts with citizens and you're making twenty one times. He arrests as your counterparts. You're going to get those complaints. The officer that doesn't get complaints. There are exceptions that can do their job and leave everybody happy at the end, but my large in our career. The officer that doesn't get those complaints doesn't get out and investigate any anything, and that's not what we're paying our officers to do. We reach out to Bob, crawl and the police. Officers Federation. We did not back here back from either of them. We should also note the website for the police union was taken down in their phone. Lines at this point are not working commissioner booker. What do you make of this complaint? It means it's the way that Bob Kroll is describing it makes it sound as though complaints are basically useless or meaningless that they don't reflect the actual behavior of an officer. What do you make of that? Well you know, I won't specifically address him for various reasons, but this notion of complaints, so I think when you look at complaints against an officer, you have to look to see if they're all in the same vein right so for example, if an officer is consistently getting use of force complaints. That's something that needs to be addressed, so I think you know when you talk complaints if they're all in the same vein that's indicative of a problem. Meaning excessive force if an officer has repeated complaints about excessive force. Is that what you mean? Yes is so say for example you know officer. A continuously is getting complaints regarding their verbal conduct right so basically. They don't know how to talk to people That's a concern that that would need to be addressed immediately just like a use of force complaints, but if you've got someone who's repeatedly getting use of force, complaints there's something going on there and obviously that would have to be addressed commissioner booker. We spoke earlier with someone from the Marshall Project, talking about the fact that police union is very heavily. Be Priest. Police Union. Leadership is very heavily white males and I wonder. Even, in places where a police force is not majority nonwhite what effect does the lead the the I guess? The background and race of leadership and Police Union have on on police culture. Do you think there's a connection between who's leading the union and the culture of a department? Yes I do I. Think there is a connection for that you look at a lot of research and it shows that in general law enforcement if you are an officer of color, a year in an organization, and which are not represented in leadership, your police organizational stress goes up, and if the leadership does encompass the union leadership, and obviously you know, wh said on the Marshall Project. Officers of color and white officers tend to view stuff differently. Sometimes on issue races happens to be one of those issues so I I do think it does have an effect on organizational culture. Brent. How do you see the relationship between The Police Union and the city leadership especially and the leadership of the police force themselves. How do you see changing recently especially since the killing of George Floyd? Well if the changes is probably been for the for the worse actually, it doesn't seem like there's the. In past incidents, there is at some type of communication that. Open communication between the the union leadership and that there'd be, although they may not have seen eye-to-eye they would at least agree that there needs to be an thorough investigation into something that had just happened and tried to reassure the public that they're going to get to. The bottom of things. speaking of. Bob Kroll and his relationship with past chiefs and mayors. We've talked a bit about that. particularly chief Air Dondo. Back in two thousand seven, when he was lieutenant, he, and for other black police officers sued the city for discrimination and part of their suit alleged that they were being unfairly disciplined. They were being denied promotional opportunities and overtime. Opportunities as well.

How many billions of ours are uploaded to YouTube every day? Well, we figured I heard a stat. I read a stat on line that there are three hundred hours of video posted on YouTube every minute.
