DOC NYC documentary film festival goes online
"It's time for our documentary of the wake from Tom Powers and Raphael in a house in the co founders of the DOC NYC Festival, which is currently taking place online until next Thursday with over 100 feature length films. Here's Tom, with a pick from the festival somewhere are ready. The greatness of America is the right toe protest far right? Day. Martin Luther King Jr is widely regarded as a hero. But the new documentary MLK. FBI returns us to the time when J. Edgar Hoover treated him as an enemy historian Beverly Gauge, explains the FBI Woz Most alarmed about King because of his success. And they were particularly concerned that he was this powerful, charismatic figure who had the ability to mobilize people. King's biographer, David Garrow, wrote a book about the FBI's relentless surveillance campaign. Their agents recorded King's extramarital affairs and tried to smear his reputation. The FBI is frustrated that even though they've successfully caught King In 15 or more hotel rooms, and they've distributed this behind the scenes to church leaders to reporters. Nothing's publicly happened now, as black lives matter. Activists face new government pressure Film makes us wonder how much the FBI has changed. The bureau's former director, James Comey, remains dismayed about Hoover's treatment of King. You know this about humans? What we're best at is convincing ourselves of our own righteousness. I think this entire episode represents the darkest part of the bureau's history. Filmmaker Sam Pollard previously was a director on eyes on the prize and a collaborator with Spike Lee. He's being honored at the document. I see Festival with a lifetime achievement award. MLK. FBI is now streaming on the dock NYC website For more information is a w n y c dot or g'kar flash docks.
Alaska's Saber Wolf
"Is Welcome to kids myths and Mysteries. I'm your host kid crumb today Mysteries of the Alaskan Wilderness when I began my research on the Alaskan triangle. I found there were so many months that I had to narrow it down to two categories vanishings and Monsters the monsters included the waheela were sabrewulf the Great Alaskan tiger the northern giant bear an acoustic on the vanishings were too numerous to track. So I went with the 1972 disappearance of then House Majority Leader Hale Boggs. Now a little history on Alaska wage. The largest state in the Union is twice the size of Texas 95% of which is uninhabited thousands of people vanish every year in Alaska since the state started keeping track in nineteen eighty-six over sixty thousand people of vanished all of the monsters in the vanishings have occurred in what is called the Alaskan triangle triangle goes from Anchorage to Juneau to Barrel wage. It makes a rather elongated triangle. I had my work cut out for me. So I started with the Hale Boggs who climbed into a twin engine Cessna 310 and flew out of Anchorage had it for June off. The plane was equipped with the latest tracking device in the pilot was considered one of the best and was known to be able to set a plane down in an emergency without injury to his passengers. At first. I am intrigued because twenty years later a plane on the same flight plan also vanished Without a Trace. However, I dismissed the bogs disappearance when I found out that he had made enemies with Richard Nixon and J Edgar Hoover and when the bogs case was reopened in the late nineties documents before and after he vanished were reviewed it became apparent that his disappearance may not have been an accident and this conclusion became even more suspect when it turned out that photos taken with infrared film from a special search plane had been removed from the case birth. So I dropped the vanishings to moved onto monsters at first. I scoffed at the idea of real monsters. I mean come on, but it was a town of Port walk and one of the monsters it made me a Believer. The town of portlock was essentially a fish processing Port conveniently-located fishing vessels brought in their catch, but the town was plagued with odd murders body of the missing were found dismembered in a manner that couldn't have been done by a bear our cat. There were also trackers and Hunters experienced from the town that ventured out and were never heard from again soon. People were leaving the town and The Cannery actually ran out of Manpower in the 1930s when incidents started to happen. Most of the Russian Elites actually moved out of the town for a year people running the Cannery basically begged their workers to come back and they set up armed guards for a short period of time tried to get their workers back in town. Monster or know people abandoned portlock in mass and it became a ghost town literally overnight. Well, one of the problems I ran into with my research is a few people I needed to hear from had computers. So there was no email and even less were interested in talking to me over the phone of the monsters one stood out the wahila of what the local call the sabrewulf. The reason for. This is a several years ago. I was researching Canada's nahanni Valley located in the Northwest Territories Deadman's Valley to be exact way. It was Untouched by the last ice age and was one of the last homes for the woolly mammoth and what the danai people called the wahila upon further research. I found that the native language of the danai is the same as the Navajo that live in the United States Southwest. I also discovered that their ancient oral history describes a gila the Navajo Nation actually home. An ancient charcoal sketch of the creature the last stop on that research was a complete skeleton of the wahila at a museum on the University of British Columbia Campus of the Alaskan triangle. There is certainly a lot of unexplored ground that could hide any number of unknown species and there is no end of local and Indigenous folklore about what I know without a doubt. It's just somewhere in that uninhabited ninety-five percent of the state of Alaska an animal lurks is science calls of a Gila and locals call a sabrewulf
"It's been a week of anger, anguish and heartbreak here in New York City. And across the country. Massive protests over George Loyd's murder under the knee of a police officer. had been met with repeated widespread violence by militarized police. The threat of active duty military being deployed to control citizens exercising their constitutional rights. The ongoing drumbeat of white supremacy coming from the White House. The People's House now, an embattled presidency fortress peaceful protesters described as terrorists. From day to day and hour to hour, I've been alternately sickened and heartened. Filled with despair, and then lifted up by the voices of people across the country, demanding revolutionary change because black lives matter. And making a history, we're proud and humbled to stand with them. All black lives matter. LGBTQ black lives matter. On Wednesday afternoon I was sitting at my desk and heard noise I couldn't identify coming through my open window. My partner born and I went outside to see what was going on. Thousands of protesters marching of Ninth Avenue as far as the I could see wearing masks, carrying signs and chanting. They were heading north, and in a few blocks be passing the apartment complex where fired Rushton once lived. He was a principal architect of the march on Washington for jobs and freedom. In August nine hundred and sixty three, a quarter of a million Americans massed in Washington D. C. at the foot of the Lincoln memorial to demand an end to state sanctioned racism. In this revisiting the archive episode, you'll hear buyers Rushton in his own words. In, addition to coordinating the nineteen sixty three march on Washington, fired was one of the organizers of the very first freedom ride through the American south in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty seven. And was mentor to Dr. Martin Luther, King Junior from the time of the Montgomery bus boycott. Barred Rushton was a proud black gay man who paid a high price for proclaiming who he was long before. It was remotely safe to do so. He put himself in harm's way over and over again subjected to attacks by white supremacists who uses race and sexuality to try to destroy him. But not only resisted triumphed. You're about to hear. An interview fired rust and gave on February fifth nineteen, eighty, six a year and a half before he died. The reporter was young peg Byron who was freelancing for DC based GAY newspaper? The, Washington, Blade. Pay conducted the interview in buyers, office and Lower Park Avenue New, York City just across town from where he lived in Chelsea with his partner Walter Naegle. Walter was also buyers assistant, and you can hear the sound of him in the next room through much of the interview. It's thanks to Walter who recorded the conversation and save it for decades in a box under their bed that we're able to hear Byron speak in this rare interview about the impact of his sexuality on his work in the civil rights movement. So, let's join peg Byron admired rusting desk and listen to history from a man who changed its course. To know mind now, let's play all right. Walters doing some research. On me.

Not, that being gay was necessarily an issue, but did you ever feel frustration about? I. You know I was an associate adopt live. Luther King's for a number of years. And actually I the person who drew up plans for his southern Christian leadership conference. Given. It was so much pressure on Dr. King's about my game. And particularly I would not be denied. That he set up a committee to explore whether you'd be changes, but To you working again? After eight years, that committee came decision would be dangerous. The Q. Midi seems eight years now.

Interview With Vivian Nava-Schellinger
"You grew up in Texas yet. Groping Al Paso Borden Rave and educated. Most of my life in El Paso. And you're an attorney right. Yeah I'm a non practicing. What do they call it? Here's the a recovering attorney guests Sosa? Oh turning bed definitely were trained attorney but then decided to do something else live took them in another direction or they changed the direction. But yeah interesting but you have an interesting story because you're Atlanta so you had the trajectory F- like where you wanted to be. When did you decide that you wanted to become a lawyer? Oh my God you know. It's funny because I when I hear people say oh I you know I was in college and I didn't know what I wanted to do or a dotted and I totally can kind of picture what that feels like but for me my earliest memory of thinking what I wanted to do with my life was to be an attorney. My mom went to law school. I Inner Family College. Grad first-generation scholarships all of the beautiful academic story. I do think that a lot of Latinos do have that we may be you know. We highlight but just not enough sometime. She really lead that example for me and showed me that law school was going to be a place that wouldn't necessarily teach me how to be a lawyer but would teach me how to think like one and I think for me even at a really really early age I wanted to know what it would like to think critically about things and not just accepting that they were and kind of go along with your day. Maybe that came a lot from my parents. My Dad was in federal law enforcement. You know there was always like the other layer of why people did what they did and there was also that layer of I get there was all around me always to not only immerse yourself in your community but to protect it so I think at a at a really young age again like I said I don't I can't put it like a like an age on it because I don't remember not wanting to do that for you an only child. I have a sister. She's about five years over five years younger than me. But I will say that I think Mike variances as an only child for the first five years of my life I think they were enrich in a way because my parents did wait a very long time actually to have meet my parents. Mary fifteen years before they had the right. And then that's unheard of now in a sense. Maybe maybe a little bit more right but even then right nineteen eighty six. When I was born my parents had already been married for fifteen years. They had traveled the world. I guide was in the FBI. He was one of the first Chicanos you know Mexican American to get into the academy among the first and actually got into the FBI Academy with J. Edgar Hoover was retiring. So I mean that how far back back goes then you know I think that whole experience in and of itself was really again be too like parents. That were pillared for me. Guide me in this direction and so also say that I think as an only child for the first five years of my life. I had a real great sense of duty to what I needed to be doing with my life so I almost feel like. I grew up kind of quick in terms of knowing that there had to be something bigger than yourself and so having a little sister and I don't WanNa get choked up because you know we can kind of go into a little bit about. She's just kind of warrior to me but having a little sister for me became a sense of duty so yeah I think those are things that the kind of circle around my story if you're sharing and I think your story is awesome because a lot of times what is Brown people that had different generations. What generation third third. I'm second generation Alpaca win on my mom by Third Generation. On my dad that we've been Pessoa longtime were crosstalk rate do Mexico This lake right there. Yeah what it is right there so we haven't been in a while but we used to go every Sunday. You know we Goethe's Mikhaylo. I guess my parents will now know that I went on a much earlier. Age or other reasons like yeah I mean you know. If they're sisters idiot are truly just a pair and it's a beautiful beautiful beautiful experience. I think to grow up in such a place and yeah I mean I grew up going. We go eat on Sunday. We go get groceries. We'd go you know we needed to get something framed. We need cowboy boots. I mean that's just what you did and for me as a child again being third generation it was never a fear or or an oddity right like some people who are really far removed. It's like Oh you know. I went to Mexico holder world and I feel like for me. My parents made a conscious effort. And one thing I've been mentioned. Is that my mom? My mom the first before my sister was born. I can remember her speaking to me. Entirely exclusively in Spanish and then my father spoke meaningless so we would be in the car or sitting at the dinner table and my parents were talking to me and both languages and I was responding in in bold thirty sometimes singlish finish though the code switching with like lit was happening And then I would go to school and you know in English and coming home and seeking Balto. It was always again living in a border community. You learn really quickly that or you know. At least that the border is a lot more fluid than what people want to make it Because that's how we you know growing up in a border town how you live your life. You're always weaving in and out language Culture Food Flavors. Balkan totally and one thing that I see that is it's beautiful I love it. Is that even though? You're third generation. You're still letting you're still proud of your culture in. I think we begin. Give that back to your parents and grandparents. They kept that in you because I've met a lot of people especially in Texas. Actually that they just went opposite direction because of all the hardship that their parents and grandparents went through soup could us your parents grandparents for instilling that culture and to keep you close to it. Yeah yeah all added that you know my two grandparents so one was a citizen in one with not and both of them though are were World War. Two veteran and the one who was yeah and one was in Japan and one was in Europe. So my mother's father my GRANDPA Korol. He actually obtained his citizenship because of his service in World War. Two you know. He was seventeen years old he was living in in quoted and he saw that they were signing young men up to go to war and he had a job in El Paso but lived in wanted like many people and he signed up and he wanted to protect the country that he felt gave him a lot. He met my grandmother who was a US citizen in with born and raised in El Paso met her at a party and wrote her throughout his entire time away. Furthermore and when he came back he married her in. He obtained citizenship. And I will say this. Is The true story. Anybody who's part of the family really knows this story but I think it's really it resonated with me especially now and and just in the time that we're in what he. She laminated his paper so that he could carry them with him at all Because even after his service than even after he became at that ascend I mean he probably couldn't count the years and the Times in which he was stopped and asked for his papers. My Mom clearly remembers the time she was probably in college where he asked where he could. Laminate something and when my mom Helped him do that to realize quickly? It was his papers so bad to me just really when you need a reason to believe in. Why the American dream as as much a part of our dream as let the nose first generation pregnant bird one hundred may be. I always think about that among other story. 'cause for me that was that that's a really powerful thing to be both proud and beautiful right and I think that that you know that hasn't changed for a lot of people. Oh my gosh so powerful quote you there because we live in this were proud of gooey are and because many people here have not explore their country they were brought young and so they especially we still have a lot of people living in the. Us times we live in living that fear and at the same time. Loving the place that you your end. It's it's a hard copy to exist

I don't know maybe the guys didn't like it but her thinking maybe one time time okay. Circumstance are less date well. After an moved away for college she frequently had sue. Come visit her on the weekends. The other students at our school loved sue. She was like everyone's little sister. susie big brother Harley had a daughter named Kristen when Assu was just five years old and when Kristen stayed with her grandparents they paid sued to keep her busy but as they got older the age difference really diminished and soon became good friends with her niece. Kristen Sumit her best friend when she was thirteen years old sandy row. Sandy and sewer inseparable spending spending time hanging out at a local bakery and attending high school classes together. Su worked as a lifeguard at a hotel. Swimming Pool in the Summers and Sandy would sit by the pool with earn play cards when the pool was busy so sue was just an upbeat energetic type of person she was always busy doing something finer bonner. Planning something fun. One thing the girls left to do was to shop. They could shop for hours and not even spend much money they also like go to the movies. Sue Play tennis but Sandy never got good at sport. Even though she tried sue was a really busy kit. She ice skated. She was a hockey cheerleader. And she also served on the student council the PEP club and the French club. She was also a really big reader sometimes sometimes reading one or two novels a week even during the school year but suicide human half draw and certainly far from perfect especially as a teen. She could be rebellious. She sometimes with skipped class or went home for lunch and just didn't bother returning to school after lunch but she got away with a lot. She was talented at making elaborate excuses. That are teachers and parents usually believed so sue and sandy graduated high school together in nineteen eighteen. Seventy seven sue then went to a private girls' college in Fulton Missouri. Sandy stayed in Saint Louis and went to Washington University so they are less. Listen two hours apart. So they're able to visit each other pretty often. Yeah but when sue announce she was majoring in accounting. Her friends were pretty surprised. She seemed to fund fund to be a serious number crunching office person but sue really enjoyed accounting. She was fun and adventurous but she also was very disciplined organized also. She really admired her dad. who had an accounting degree? So after graduating in the top of her class suit took a position with Santa the energy in Amarillo Texas while she was working there she got her. CPA and the next summer. She traveled to Saint Louis to be Sandy's maid definer Sandy's marriage would last only four years but soon would always be there to listen to her and give her advice then ensued took a second job after working for a while with Santa Fe energy. She moved to Midland Texas and had a position with N run run. Yes the notorious company but at the time it was well respected. It was a good company. This is before they had their slippery slide. Yes now after six months of working with Enron. She is transferred to their headquarters in Houston and in Houston. Sue spent a lot of time with her former sister-in-law. Debbie Debbie had had been married and divorced. Sue's older brother Pete. Souza would go to her nephew soccer games and she had shopped the Debbie on the weekends she left to shop for clothing and and she dressed nicely so she set up an exchange with your friends and Murillo so that they ought quadruple their wardrobes by sharing so in nineteen eighty seven. Sue took took a position with southwestern Bell Corporation in Saint Louis her position and the people she worked among their lead her into a more glamorous life if she started attending charity Events Dinner Parties and Gallery openings and she was happy to be back living near her friend Sandy. They began spending more and more time together having lunch taking aerobics classes which was a big thing at the time she was also reunited with her niece Kristin during this time they were only a few years apart and became good friends so they went out on the weekend nights and sue was happy to pay kristen's way because Sumeida good it. Salary and Kristen was still struggling but a suge close to thirty. She began to worry about finding a partner and having a family. She told a French French. She wanted to have kits and she'd like to stay home and raise them while loving husband would work to support them and they live in a nice suburban house and and then she met Rick Mcfarland and he seemed to fit the bill of the Kinda guy she wanted at least to begin with. Yeah so rick was the second son of Dick and and Mona McFarland of Kirkwood Missouri. When he is a young kid the family moved to Saint? Louis he grew up in webster groves with his two brothers. David David and done in high school. He is a big water polo player and he worked on the staff of the school newspaper. He went to southwest South West Missouri State University in Springfield after high school but had difficulty concentrating so while he was here his diagnosed with attention deficit disorder and put on medication. And with the mets he was able to maintain a B average so he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration nation and got a job with stockbrokerage company. Shearson Lehman. I did pretty well. There drove a beamer. Had a carriage Charles lived in an upscale port town right so from just hearing that you'd say Oh this is a pretty great guy. Why would you because he's got a BMW BMW? Well it seems like a good prospect. He's got a job right. He's having heard anything. Says he's a jerk right. That's what I'm saying but you know like everybody else. He did have issues but he was pretty good at hiding them for most people. He did get in trouble one time in college for stealing but the charges were dismissed. One of his former dates said that rick made her very uncomfortable after they had two dates his because she told him she didn't want to see him anymore but he persisted calling her to the point where she was afraid of him and then she caught him hiding in the bushes outside of her house stalking getting her concern. Yes but of course. Sued doesn't know about any of this right and sue and Rick had actually attended the same high school all but they didn't really meet each other until they bumped into each other at a party in Saint Louis. Rick was much quieter than Su so they seemed like kind of unlikely unlikely couple when they began dating but to sue she felt like she hit it off with him again. Not not to demean sue. But we've already talked about how she's hitting thirty and she's thinking like time is running out so maybe she settled for something not quite the top of her list list. Yeah that's what a lot of people close to her. Actually thought bird. No he review would do in a pinch enough. I'd go that far but I guess she didn't seem like she was head over heels like he was you know her prince charming but thought he would do you would do when he seemed like a nice stable guy but he wasn't nearly as clever or witty. Assu you know sue was really fun but you know. Rick seemed like he could be a good match for her. She could be the outgoing one and he could keep her grounded but still sandy and kristen thought that sue probably was settling a bit with Rick just because she wanted to start a family and she was getting being older
President, Trump And Robert Muller discussed on Slate's Political Gabfest
"The president is nominating John Ratcliffe to be director of National Intelligence after pushing out Dan Coats from that position coats is one of the few reasonable adults whose left in the administration ratcliffe known principally did a Fox News viewers has <hes> it is fair to say practically no experience in intelligence. He's been in the House for about five years four or five years. He's he's had one year on the Intelligence Committee importantly that year was a year that contained last week's questionnaire Robert Muller which he made a good audition tape shape for the president during that and he had a year as a anti-terrorism prosecutor that he knew that he seems to have significantly embellished when he described the work he did. I think it's safe to say he has been appointed because he's a partisan hack who has defended the president every turn he's embraced trump's conspiracy theories about the deep state. He has pit bold Robert Muller earlier in hearings and on Fox he is the I believe is. The source of the <hes> claim that there's an F._B._i.. Secret Society that was out to get trump. He's a different different kind of cat than previous director of national intelligence so emily. Why is it unsettling that we might have him as head of deny there are lots lots of partisans up and down this administration lots of people who are who are <hes> you know trump at all costs do what do the president's bidding wise unsettling to have someone in disposition expedition? Well I think even to date we've had leaders of the F._B._i.. And the intelligence services who don't seem terribly political and partisan in their presentations and motivations and so you know Christopher as the head of the F._B._i.. Has warned about Russian threats <hes> pertaining to the elections. That's just one example. I think Dan Coats is also seemed like a straight shooter on these questions the idea that you could have someone in this incredibly sensitive imposed who's interested in you know cooking the intelligence in some way or ignoring reports that are disadvantages to president trump and promoting theories even if they're conspiracy theories that he thinks will help the president that's scary and then when you think of actually turning the intelligence services against political political enemies will then we're back to j Edgar Hoover and the F.

Millions of whom were kidnapped from their homes in Africa and brought in chains by ship. Hip to the United States. Slavery was ultimately ended but the ideology behind it persisted.

"Of the dog. I'm convinced Charles that J Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI at the time that the JFK was killed knew all about this. Why didn't he say anything about it? New knew all about which part about the mob being involved in the JFK assassination and everything else. I think. Okay. Hoover. Hoover denies the existence of the mob for decades. He claimed there was no such thing as organized crime and then events historic American events such as the the meeting at Appalachian in nineteen fifty seven where where it's shown in a movie of all things a comedy analyze that. They showed that that raid on on the Joe Barbara house in Appalachian, and all of a sudden, we're all reading in the paper, I was in high school to time look at this look at all these gangsters sixty some odd were arrested. They must be connected somehow, it really must be organized crime. Somehow and Hoover was was being greeted by this kind of information and began to weaken he began to admit, well, maybe there is working ice crime. And the biggest the biggest coup was the job lachey testimony of lachey was a member of the game of the Genovese crime family, and he he turned turned on Vito. Genovese and testified for. Bobby Kennedy before congress and gave up the mafia's deepest darkest secrets. And so now Hoover was was worn out. He was worn down. And he created a program to go after organized crime in the FBI, and those those are people I worked with on on to other books. One was Donnie Brasco unfinished business and where I worked with the real Donnie Brasco Joe for stone. And the other book was we're going to win this thing where I where I work with Linda Vecchio, the expectations agent for the mafia commission case, and and those those guys were very valuable very tough FBI agents and did quite a job on the mafia. You've done some great work. Do you think the mob might have been involved in Robert F Kennedy's assassination? No, I personally, don't I? And I I've seen. Documentary to not very persuasive. I I know you introduced me as a homicide investigator. What I was I investigated or had a hand in the investigation of over fifty of them, and as the chief deputy for the state of Delaware, and the kinds of things that were said in the documentary that I saw about Bobby Kennedy were nonsense. Are let's take some calls here for you. Charles does hours flying by. We'll go west of the Rockies Ray in Exeter. California's with us highway go ahead. Hey, George how you doing? Doing great good. Go ahead. You're on what Charles Brandt. Yeah. Well, I most watch your book at Barnes and noble about six months ago, Mr. Brandt, but I think I'm gonna buy it. Now, it's a great read rate. You'll love it. Thank you. Yeah. I mean, they element of organized crime. You know, and like the JFK D on everything, you know. I mean, everybody who's read anything about it knows that, you know, the organized crime you had to be involved at some point. And because of ruby. I mean, just ruby. I mean. Here. And I was just wondering, you know, do you think that organized crime was really behind that? Or do you think that they were involved in it that everything else that went on, you know, the cover up, and they continuing cover up, and so much that happens, you know, indicating that, you know, there might have been influences beyond organized crime that will also helping and behind in ice climb that population in Dallas possible, you think that the mobs role was just maybe more of kind of an indirect operational role with Cuban exiles, and to do was actually somebody else really directing and moving them around on the board kinda like pawns? Well, if you make it too complicated. You don't get a hit. It's gotta be short and simple. The the the mafia generally speaking, they they don't shoot anybody other than the person they can get within eighteen inches. But there are occasionally high-powered rifle killings like Bugsy Siegel Beverly Hills. I believe that the mafia as Frank taught me that the mafia was behind the hit. They did something they do in Sicily called get a nut got him, not Lee Harvey Oswald and and got him to do the shooting. And that that's what I personally believe. What's the the evidence for it? Comes comes from the mouth of French and to me on tape. The FBI has my tapes. And then came corroboration of what what I just told you it was corroborated brilliantly into FBI reports from nineteen eighty nine that we were released after the law change in one thousand nine hundred ninety two and a mandated the gradual release of records and these two records FBI records show that Carlos Marcello was behind the killing. Yup. And traffic Kante he might have been involved too. Well. Yes. But this particular documents, these particular documents focus on Carlos Marcello weren't there. Also to assassination plans that were throated because Kennedy never went to Tampa in Chicago. They heard. Yeah, I've seen that. Yeah. I'm Frank wasn't involved in in any of that does. He was not involved. Thanks ray. Let's go to first time. Caller, J truck driving in West Virginia. Hi J. Welcome to the show. Well, thanks and very interested in this topic. And I think we'd be doing a disservice to Mr. Hoffa, we left him one dimensional and just with this relationship with LA Cosa Nostra. And when we hear these stories we never hear about why he got involved with the mob and why he turned to the mob as muscle and this goes back World War Two coming out. There was a huge strike wave in forty six. And the business leaders couldn't accept this. So in forty seven there was a law passed called Taft Hartley, which really tied the hands of organized labor, and Mr. Hoffa was and credible organizer before you ever got involved with the mob, but he turned to the mob because hands of organized labor were tied in such a way that made it nearly impossible to move forward. And he took a shortcut, and he can't be absolved of that sin, but he turned to them because of what was happening and labor law. No, I think you're right. Jay, go ahead. Charles. Well, we're we're French urine alive today. He'd be applauding. What you're saying? Frank was himself a very sincere. Labour leader. Any any worship heartfelt worship the good? That offered did for the union and for the working people of the country. I mean Hoffa in in a fiber called didn't Jack Nicholson playoff in the movie. Yes. He did a movie called Hoffa. Yeah. Danny devito is his right hand man or something like that. The ours. From and told me that his depiction of offer Jack Nicholson's depiction of office was very very good. Yeah. Good. Good. Great. And I remember Hoffa soliciting the mob through Jack Nicholson in the movie because he needed muscle to get tough with some of the owners of these companies. Well, that's why he that's why he hired Frank. That's why he said Frank I heard you paint houses, by the way, Charles when your movie comes out all of this history. When your movie comes out the next year come back on and bring Bobby deniro for a little bit. And let's let's get you back on. During the making of this movie. I've become close the Bob Marty. And and the screenwriter Steve's alien I'll be back in Los Angeles in about a month where I spent half my time. So let's let's do that. And I'd love to get to near on the show with you. That'd be fun. Great actor, by the way. How did how did Scorsese find him for this apart? Well, actually, it was Bob that found the the the book. Really, yes, somebody had given it to him to read he fell in love with it. He gave it to the screenwriter Steve's alien who's won the Oscar for Schindler's List. Read valium said damn this should be your next book your next movie, rather. And and and Bob already knew that. You're right. That's why I gave it to you to rate could always Pacino in the movie too. Scorsese fell in love with. So this is this is going back. Some this is two thousand seven one. When Bob I discovered I gosh, they've been at it that long. Oh, yeah. That's in Pacino is going to be in a two. Chino is going to play Jimmy Hoffa. Yeah. And the Joe patchy is gonna play muscle buff Lino, the mafia boss Bob is gonna play the Irishman. Frank sheeran? And it's quite a cast, and I'm very unusual. Unusually deep talented can't I thought back in seventy five when the FBI started investigating this Detroit Charles that they were doing a really thorough job. I mean, all the players that they had at the grand jury are in your book. I you know, all all the peoples. Glad you said that because I I normally say when I give a talk or or I'm on an interview I normally say that the FBI figuring it out. Bob, Garrity figured it out. They just didn't know who did what exactly they moved from informers that Tony Giacolone was involved. They knew that Chucky was involved. They knew the front yard man was involved. He was a prime suspect. They knew that Russell buffalo. Lena was involved. They just couldn't prove anything. And when they when they took these men before grand juries, they clammed up. They were evasive. They they sounded pretty quickly. I'll tell you that the and the book points out the the the man behind it all was fat. Tony Salerno who is who was then the head of the Genevieve's crime family and friends Tony Salerno had a meeting where all the participants in the hit on Hoffa were required to attend the meeting at a restaurant in.

One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j.

'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother.
