Sean Davis: The FBI Was Conceived on Corruption
"Faith and fidelity to our institutions is almost completely gone And how Christopher wray who claims to be an institutionalist it just continues to ignore this It's just stunning to me I mean he's almost at the point now where I believe damage wise He's as bad if not worse than Comey Oh he's awful He's absolutely awful There's a little difference between the two and that I think ray is just generally incompetent and cowardly whereas I think Comey himself is just pure evil But I almost think it's too easy to blame the problems at the FBI on ray or on come on or whoever people forget that the FBI was conceived in corruption Okay this is the agent that agency that J. Edgar Hoover ran and he had them blackmail and come up with blackmail information against members of Congress and politicians The FBI today sits in the J. Edgar Hoover building Okay So I wish it were just this nice great institution that had always been doing good fair above board work and just a couple of bad apples got in the way I don't think that's the case I think that entire institution is rotten from the ground up it needs to be eliminated and defunded and we actually need to find a way to have a federal law enforcement agency that doesn't exist to corrupt everything in politics and in people's lives based on what a ruling regime happens to think Because look I don't like red China I don't like Russia but day in and day out in this country the FBI is the biggest threat to our freedoms and liberty Bigger than any other single entity in the world right now It's the FBI If the FBI that's going and throwing people in jail for having the audacity to walk into a public building through a door held open for them by police during business hours I mean it's criminal

"Sort of this communist purge, he's largely beloved by the public, but had he stepped down, he would have been much better remembered before he gets into the failures of the 60s and 70s. One aside, which we mentioned earlier in this discussion is his personal life, which has attracted a lot of attention in more recent years. Particularly his relationship with Clyde tolson. Based on your reading of the archives, what was this? And how much of it was an open secret in Washington? Yeah, the most famous story about Hoover that you mentioned earlier is this idea that he liked to wear women's clothing and honestly when I say that I'm writing a biography of J. Edgar Hoover, the did he really wear a dress is one of the first questions that I always get and the answer is we don't know, but there is no evidence to suggest that that is true that comes from the reporting of a journalist named Anthony summers, who did lots of really pioneering and interesting reporting on Hoover, but in this particular case, his source for that story is a woman who claimed that she had gone with her husband to the Plaza in the late 1950s for a kind of group sex adventure with Roy Cohn and that Hoover was there as well dressed in women's clothing and having sex with teenage boys. So it's a scandalous and interesting story for sure, but this is also a woman who actually served time in jail for perjury. So she is not exactly not on this matter on a different matter, but she makes her not exactly an unimpeachable witness. And so we actually have no evidence to suggest that this is true outside of these kind of expansive rumors. But on the broader question of Hoover's personal life, his sexual life and in particular his relationship with Clyde tolson, we do have a lot more evidence.

"They were lawyers and many of them never expected to be on a highway with a gun being shot at by the most famous criminals in the United States. Could you walk through the sorts of reforms he introduces? Because I imagine he has to completely rebuild the organization so that it could do something like communicate across state lines and do weapons training, do tactical training, all these different things. So what did it look like for him to rebuild this organization to deal with the threats that he saw in the 1930s? Yeah, the 30s is a really big period of kind of institutional change for the FBI to address these new duties and problems that are coming his way. And there are all sorts of features that come into being during that period that are still very much Staples of how the FBI operates. So he opens a new training school out at Quantico, not only to train his own agents, but to begin to train local police officers to combat these new forms of crime and to use FBI methods. He begins to collect crime statistics, and he fights very hard to be the one collecting crime statistics, you know, the question was who ought to be in charge of this. There are a lot of people who say, it should be something like the Census Bureau, someone who's not super invested in law enforcement, but Hoover actually gets control over that. And that is the basis for the uniform crime reports, the crime statistics that the FBI still puts out today. He opens a new lab that is supposed to be at the cutting edge of forensic technology. This is especially important in kidnapping cases where they're often trying to deploy scientific methods to trace out clues, but the FBI really becomes a kind of pioneering force in that, still the famous FBI lab, which is run into some problems over the years, but dates its origins here. And then he's got to teach all these guys to shoot guns and to kind of come into their own as this sort of spectacular crime fighting force. Many of the people he had hired in the 20s were college educated. They were lawyers. They were accountants. They were men that he had sort of styled as experts and not like regular cops, right? Regular cops were thought to be, you know, pretty brutal and often undereducated. And he really wanted his agents to be different from that. But then in the 30s, they find themselves needing to be a lot more like cops to learn how to deal with not only weapons, but informants to deal with the press in new ways. And found themselves in situations where they were kind of confronted with both the temptations and also the challenges of dealing with organized crime. It's interesting to think that the organization evolved so quickly from accountants and lawyers that are nervously trying to put together a handgun at a shooting range and having terrible aim. That's what I'm thinking of. Until a

"The right moment when in the 1930s, the federal government begins to expand at such a rapid pace. And when the new deal comes along, he's just very much a part of it. He changes the name of the bureau to the FBI, right? What if these kind of three letter new deal acronyms, he is part of this big expansion of federal power. And in the case of the FBI, what that means is they really get the ability to make arrests to carry weapons and particularly to move into new areas of law enforcement where the federal government hadn't had any role before kidnapping, bank robbery, a lot of these very high profile, very flashy crimes with pretty famous criminal adversaries like John Dillinger and pretty boy Floyd and the Barker gang. And that in many ways is the moment that he becomes a kind of national celebrity, a really public figure for the first time. But it is absolutely the new deal and Franklin Roosevelt in particular who give him a lot of the power that he wields for the rest of his life. I'd like to look at his early victories the capture of John Dillinger because you note that on the one hand, his views, his philosophy of government and policing, don't appear to change that much over the 50 years. He leads the FBI. But on the other hand, he's remarkably flexible when it comes to new methods of policing, evolving from 1920s, forms of policing, which is much more provincial up to dealing with bank robberies, up to nationwide programs of counter espionage and going against the Soviet to the highest levels of intelligence you can imagine. He's remarkably flexible in that way. But let's look at what are the problems that he faces with bank robberies that are different in its form of crime than what came before and how is he successful? Yeah, he has this really interesting sort of paradox where on the one hand, he has these key principles and these key ideas that you can see, he develops as a very young man, and he holds on to for his whole life. On the other hand, the nature of his job is that he often has to learn radically new things and adapt the FBI, adapt himself, adapt his bureaucracy to new challenges as they come along, and he couldn't have stayed in his job for so long if he hadn't had that adaptability that flexibility. And in fact, certainly when he was a young man, most people in Washington knew him best for precisely that, that he was a kind of energetic, fast talker, a quick study, someone who was able to kind of sense what was needed and turn on a dime. In the 1930s, the big problem is violent crime, particularly bank robberies, also kidnappings, and we tend to think about the new deal as being mostly about labor or social welfare or things like that. But actually the war on a crime was a huge part of what was happening during those years and was a big part of Franklin Roosevelt's agenda, the idea being that without actually maintaining some form of Law & Order, you weren't going to be able to provide security and safety, make people feel that their federal government was watching out for them.

"Powerful non elected person in modern American history is arguably J. Edgar Hoover, who led the FBI for 48 years. Today he's remembered as a paranoid secretive power monger who kept files on everyone and would blackmail them if necessary, and also for his purported tendency to cross dress, but he was much more than a one dimensional tyrant and schemer, who strong armed the rest of the country into submission. As FBI director from 1924 to his death in 1972, he was a confidant counselor in adversary to 8 U.S. presidents. He became director of the FBI as a wide eyed wonder Kent, full of optimism and progressive ideas about using the state to transform society in a good way. He had many early career successes taking down bank robbers like

"Thank you. I wondered. Let's welcome back talking to Mark. Shaw, final segment for today, Mark, I hope we can just have you back because this is so rich. But you wanted in our final segment to connect Joe Kennedy the patriarch to J. Edgar Hoover. Go ahead. Well, all of this is my contribution to history. You know, it all landed in my lap somewhere and so I feel like it's my duty to let people know about this. They can make up their own minds. I write stop and think books. But one of the most miraculous things that I found, my wife said, I screamed when she came when I came across this. From the national archives, a document that showed at one point, Joe Kennedy wrote a really nice letter to J. Edgar Hoover, praising him up and down about everything he was doing and everything. And then if you can believe this, said, you know, mister Hoover, FBI director Hoover, you should run for president. And if you do, I will back you financially. That just blew my mind. Yeah. Here. You know, it's just corrupt. It's just corrupt stuff, and it bothers the conscience that these kinds of things. Listen, this is the point. And it relates as to where we are today. When you wonder how it is that the clintons and the bidens can be so corrupt, we have to understand folks. This is human nature, apart from God, this is what power does to people. It is evil, it hurts people. And when you think about J. Edgar Hoover, I mean, the idea that this man had the power that he did as the director of the FBI for decades, folks, unelected for decades, tremendous power to look into people's lives. And he himself is a tremendously mysterious creepy figure. It seems very clear that he was homosexual that he was, I mean, it wasn't clear to me if that can be proved, but it seems almost impossible that it wasn't the case based on what we know. Well, and he hit it all, you know? He just covered all of it up. You know, when you talk about the corruption today though, it's very difficult to tell in so many ways with who's corrupt and who's not, because, you know, we're in a news cycle that's 24 hours now. It was meant that it was told to me the other day. You know, look back when I show my age here, but used to have an hour's worth of news a day. 5 o'clock for dinner. So, you know, labeling corruption with politicians today. I mean, you can go down through the whole list. And you can do it ever since 1960 for whatever. Look, a Biden won't release the documents, the JFK documents. Nixon didn't Trump didn't. Nobody will give us the documents. That's corruption. What are they hiding? What are they doing there? Trust in government is that a complete low and that's really unfortunate that we're at that stage of existence. And unless we acknowledge it, we can't deal with it. And I think we are beginning to acknowledge it and beginning to say that this was not the founder's vision. This is not our constitution. This is not who we are as a people. We've got to recognize this. We've got to drain the proverbial swamp. We've got to throw people out, who are in love with their own power and who understand that they're there to serve. But it really is looking at the story of J. Edgar Hoover, the idea that this was tolerated that someone would create this huge fiefdom for himself from which, you know, it's kind of like Robert Moses here in New York. You think, my goodness, these are nefarious figures who they got way more power than you're supposed to be able to have in a constitutional republic like the United States. Hoover had a, you know, his name's on the FBI building, fall things. But he had this little notebook, big notebook with dirt on everybody. I mean, he was so smart to how he kept his position, Eric, although jeers. I mean, the kennedys hated him. You know, Morris wolf remember that I talked about who gave me the senator Cooper, you know, they know about Oswald, but they know about ruby, but whose connection to organized crime. They say they're doing this for God in country with regard to the Oswald theory. All of those kind of things, the rationalizations, and everything like that. But as Cooper told me, the Kennedy just didn't even trust themselves to talk on the telephone between the Justice Department and The White House so they used this incredibly. Incredibly honest man Morris Wolfe to write his bicycle between the White House and the Justice Department with secret messages between the two kennedys. That's how bad it was back then with J. Edgar Hoover. You know, they couldn't trust him. Nobody could trust him, but they all knew that he had the dirt on them, and they couldn't, they couldn't fire the guy. Everybody had dirt on everybody. It's just, it's horrific. Frank Sinatra comes out like a real bum in this book. I have to say, two chapters and the worst thing that ever happened in Maryland Monroe was that Sinatra introduced her to the kennedys. And it was all downhill from there in terms of what happened to her. That was kind of signing her death warrant, but what a sleazy guy. And all his connections to the mafia. You know, he's the one that Joe Kennedy went to and asked him to get in touch with gian Khan and Marcelo in those guys. So he's implicated in all of that. The stream of that leads to JFK's death as well. But I have very, very little respect. Every time I hear a Frank Sinatra Sinatra song, I want to throw up. Well, I have to say when just reading what you write in the book. I mean, I knew much of this, but it's just awful for anybody who has any innocence any sense of right and wrong when you read about these folks, it's a wake-up call. It is scandalous. It's shocking, but it's important we face the truth and Mark since we're out of time, let me simply say thank you for your role in this..

"I thought I was talking to John Denver happens that I'm talking to Mark Shaw if you're watching this on rumble, you can see why it would make that mistake. Mark Shaw, you've written yet another book on the JFK assassination on the deaths of Marilyn Monroe, Dorothy ko gallon. It's called fighting for justice. You were just about to leap into making a point. So please go ahead, sir. Well, the books released today. I'm very proud of it. I wasn't going to write it. But I'll tell you one of the first things I found audio tape conversations between LBJ, the new president, and J. Edgar Hoover, on two particular dates in 1963 and four. And these guys, you talk about dark and diabolical. These two men were planning. No question about it to deceive the American people in the world about what really happened to JFK. Here's just a few, you know, two or three of the conversation points. LBJ, yes. His secretary. J Edgar Hoover on extension two one 9 two. LBJ, are you familiar with this proposed group that they are trying to put together on this study of your report and Hoover's report is Oswald alone and other things too from the house two from the Senate, somebody from the court, a couple of outsiders. Hoover, no, I haven't heard that. I've seen the reports on the Senate investigation investigating committee they're talking about. Well, they'll be Jay says, we think if we don't have to, I want to get by by just filing your report. J. Edgar Hoover, I think it would be very, very bad to have a grace of investigation. Well, the only way LBJ says we can stop them is probably a point of high level one to evaluate report and put someone pretty good on it and we can select who it is. J. Edgar Hoover, yes, because we would get a bunch of television going, that would be bad. J. Edgar Hoover, it's a three ring ring circuit. It would be a three ring circus. So right away, see, there are controlling what's going to be happening. And then they go through all of these individuals as people can read. Who they think might be on the commission, and they cross this one out because, well, he might want some publicity. This is clear. They stack the deck. And again, I want to underscore this for the audience here. Folks, this is evil. In the United States of America, you have a president is assassinated. Normally in a free society, journalists investigators have go to it to figure out everything and we have every right to know these kinds of things and at the beginning at the very beginning within days of this, LBJ and J. Edgar Hoover decide no, we're going to create an official looking commission. We are going to squash any alternative theories, now the question, of course, Mark Shaw is why. I saw a documentary some years ago that implicated LBJ in being behind the JFK assassination. Is there anything to that in your mind? Well, it's interesting. I find these documents and I feel like they just come to me for whatever reason. But each one of these men, Hoover, LBJ, you know, the kennedys who blocked the investigation of anything having to do with them. And that's in the book as well. LBJ was concerned about people looking into its past. And the oil companies deals and all that kind of stuff. He was a sleazy guy. Again, I want to be clear folks. These are corrupt to the bottom. These are wicked people, okay? We name airports after them, but they were as dirty as it gets as powerful as it gets, and they use their power in evil ways, and it's amazing that only now is much of this coming to light. There's been a lot of talk about this, but before we get into how horrible LBJ was, because he was horrible. Do you discount the idea that he knew that this assassination was being planned? Because of course, he is a Texas man. This happened in Texas. Any question in your mind whether he knew what was being planned. Well, I found an independent evaluation of that and of all places in a KGB document. Which basically said that the Russians were certain that LBJ was involved in JFK's assassination. If they were certain of it. And there are other documents out there, but that one stuck out to me because it had never been seen before. And I don't think there was any reason why I'm sure there could be reasons why they would make up something like that. But I thought that was very interesting. You know, he didn't really like the kennedys. He never liked the kennedys, especially Bobby. And he didn't like LBJ. You know, one person that he put on the commission was Alan dulles, the CIA director, who JFK had fired, you know? So again, he's trying to do anything that he can to stop an investigation of how he could be involved. And then Hoover has his reasons too. Okay, so we don't know whether LBJ was involved. It's unfortunately very plausible. But part of what I want to get at since I've read the book now is that the kennedys were deeply involved with organized crime with the mafia. We have to be clear about that folks. How filthy this is, that Joe Kennedy, who was a bootlegger and who was involved with criminals and his rise to the top. He had all kinds of connections. And as you make clear in the bookmark Shaw, and as many have made clear, he made a deal with the mob that in order for JFK to win the presidency, he needs Illinois. He needs West Virginia. You can get it done through criminal activity. That's exactly what happened. It is. And then, of course, Joe being Joe and this powerful man who wanted to be president himself but couldn't, so he made at one point, you know, Eric, he really thought there would be, let's see, 8, 8, 8, 24 years of Kennedy's in The White House. Okay? Believe it, believe it. 24. JFK, Bobby Ted. That's how screwed up this guy was. He thought he could do that. So what does he do? He gets help from the mafia guys to win those states and win the election, telling them we'll leave you alone. You'll leave you alone. What do you mean? I want to be clear. He did that. This is one of these things. I don't want to gloss over too quickly. The fact that Joe Kennedy, the patriarch of this clan who was a horrific womanizer, just absolutely dark, horrible people, but he pulled strings criminally, we know, to get his son elected to the presidency and Nixon because he was too much of a statesman decided to say nothing about it, effectively. I mean, he deserves to be in profiles and courage for that, although the book was written before this season. Yes, and with Joe, you then can figure out exactly why he doesn't want any investigation of him by the Warren commission. He doesn't want any investigation of Bobby and his involvement with Marilyn Monroe, anything like that. So he's got his reasons. Hoover's got his reasons. They all come together and they decide, we've got to just put a stop on this and we're going to go ahead and have a commission. It'll look good. We'll put these guys on there and everything. The real consequence to all of this is and you may remember when we spoke the last time this senator that we're talking about. One of the main things that he said was that the commission knew about the connection between Jack Ruby and organized crime, and they did nothing about it. Well, all they had to do was realize that you can go from. Connecting Jack Ruby to organize crime to Marcello, who is the one that Bobby Kennedy and Joe Kennedy over double crossed, and then I've proven that Marcelo is the one that orchestrated JFK's death. All the connections are there, but they don't want any of those connections to come up in the Warren commission report. That's for sure. Well, they squashed it. And again, this is what's so fascinating to me about this is just how nefarious it is. That in the United States of America, I mean, we talk about how far we've drifted from the founding. But this was already going on big time in the early 60s and before the corruption and the power that you have among some of these elites. The high handedness that they could get away with this, they could participate in murder and to say that JFK and his brother were adulterers is an extremely mild term for whatever it was they were sexual predators. So it's very, very dark. I just want to be clear. And when you look at it, I mean, you mentioned this in the last program. But the key to the whole thing, of course, is that Dorothy kilgallen was friends with one of the men appointed to the Warren commission. And because he felt guilty and he should have felt guilty because it was despicable that he signed his name to this, he thought, let me give her some of this information she'll do with it what I didn't have the guts to do. And she was in the process of doing that, which is why you allege and I agree that she was murdered. Yeah. And you can see him. This is senator John Sherman Cooper in the book. You can see in the right hand side is this whistleblower Morris wolf told me a very credible witness to work for Bobby Kennedy at the attorney general's office and was the legislative assistant to this man, John Sherman Cooper. He's hiding. He's hiding behind a hill Boggs, the representative here, because he was so ashamed. And really, what this all deals with Dorothy is weave through all of this. And what happens is I always thought that it was because she had the Warren commission ruby testimony. And she published it and Hoover was upset. But I believed and it's reasonable to believe that Cooper shared with her that there was corruption on the Warren commission. So now here's Dorothy as 1968 ends, 1965. She's writing this book for Random House with all of this in there..

Why Author Mark Shaw Sought the Truth in the JFK Assassination
"For folks who don't know anything about you, how did you get into this? Because anybody who's been alive in our lifetimes know that there's been tremendous controversy and confusion around certainly the death of president Kennedy, the death of Marilyn Monroe, and many people haven't even heard of Dorothy kill gallon. What brought you? What is your background that brought you to investigate these things as you have done over the years? Well, you ask about how I got into all of this and I have no idea in some ways very Quinn. President Kennedy was killed 60 years ago, you know, nearly 60 years ago or a little bit more. You know, I like everybody else. I cried my ears out. I was a Purdue university as a freshman. And yet over the years then, I bought all this material about J. Edgar Hoover saying Oswald alone. Oswald alone all of that and everything else. And then I had a real break with this because I knew Melvin Belli, who represented Jack Ruby, who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. I practiced law with him in San Francisco in the 80s. And when Belle I died, I started to look into his life and times and I found out that I could have a book there. So I wrote Melvin bell I king of the courtroom. And what I found out was the alarming, a couple things. First of all, he was very close with the mafia, one of his main clients was Mickey Cohen, the Los Angeles gangster. You're talking about but more than talking about Bella, are you talking about Marvin belli was close with the mafia? Melvin bell. Melvin Belli. Bella. Yeah. San Francisco attorney, but also he was known as a tort lawyer. He was a personal injury lawyer. How in the world I asked myself, I mean, you're a curious guy. How did he become Jack Ruby's attorney? So I started looking into that and what I found out was that actually he was a hired by those who wanted to silence Jack Ruby for his participation in the killing of Oswald and the JFK assassination.

"j. edgar hoover" Discussed on The Astrology Podcast
"This is that it just made me realize it made me remember like the opposite side of that, which is like, sometimes they are out to get you, and it just reminded me of a very famous Scorpio placement, which is J. Edgar Hoover, who had Capricorn rising and Saturn and Uranus in scorpios, the mid heaven and Scorpio, and he was like the head of the FBI and was involved in gathering together different people's secrets and spying on people and sometimes like blackmailing people and doing all sorts of shady behind the scenes stuff so that it's funny because the flip side of it is like sometimes there is stuff like that out there and it's sometimes the Scorpio energy is almost sometimes attuned to picking that up or sometimes are the people sort of working behind the scenes involved in those things. But that's the challenge the challenge I think is to learn to be discerning. Like I said, it's not everyone that's to get you. Doesn't mean there's no one. Right. It just means that you have to kind of be discerning for sure. And that's probably a lifelong lesson and struggle for maybe heavy Scorpio placements or energy is learning how to be discerning and learning to find the correct balance between being sensitive to what's happening in the environment and having that almost as like a special superpower, but on the other hand, not letting that sensitivity get out of whack and lead you into weird places of paranoia and sort of almost delusion. Yeah, I think an issue that Scorpio often has is fixed signs. So you can kind of have a one track mind. And it can be really hard to sort of divert from that, which reminds me of another one point Austin copic on this show had mentioned related Scorpio to water pipes, like what fixed water, water going into and one direction, right? Fixed in one direction. And yeah, it just makes me think about how difficult it can be to change the Scorpio's mind, mine included. When, yeah, it's like the water is rushing through the pipes and this one direction, and it's like, how are you going to how are you going to divert that? So yeah, the one track mind, I find, I was raised by a Scorpio father. With sun and mercury there. And I think with those more diurnal planets too, the sun or even mercury more mentally oriented planets and Scorpio can have a harder time with that as well because it's like, yeah, just trying to rationalize in an environment that is very dark and murky. And sticky, which is what I think of Scorpio. So yeah. Yeah, maybe a good keyword there is obsession sometimes that comes up and that can be a good thing sometimes or can be a bad thing, like obsession when channeled correctly is having a passion for something and just being super passionate about something whether that's a person, whether it's a hobby, whether it's like a life goal or something like that, but other times it can also be an obsession or something that's maybe not necessarily healthy and that is hard to redirect once it gets headed in a certain direction, sort of like a freight train. Yeah, and I'll just say especially for us Pluto and scorpios that have Scorpio placements. The obsession compulsion piece just kind of gets ramped up when you add Pluto in the mix, which is, yeah, we have that whole 15 years of our generation that have that. So our 12 years I should say. Well, I was going to also say, I mean, I guess when are we going to talk about the elephant or the planet and the dwarf planet in the room? Because I think some measure of that word obsession, I think, is associated commonly with Pluto related to Scorpio and not just Pluto in Scorpio, but Pluto as putative ruler, a Scorpio. Now I don't subscribe to using modern planets as rulers, but it has become part of the lexicon of Scorpio because of that association with the modern planet Pluto. So I think that's, but we could explain that also in terms of fixed watery Mars. Kind of the deep diver. It's the deep diverse, so it's kind of like either way you want to look at it, whether it's from Pluto or from Mars. It is some way in which you feel pulled. And that's kind of an interesting thing. A sign that we have talked about so much so far with control, often can seem to lose control with feeling like something external to it is pulling it. You know, whether it's as we were talking about astrology, but it could be like, well, why were you at that girl's house? Sam, I don't know, I just felt like I had to be there. That's not like for my life, okay? Sure. But it's kind of this obsessive quality that may happen that is, you know, I've heard scorpios talk about where you just, especially when it relates to, you know, we were just talking about Libra, a wrong has been committed against us. We may feel compelled, obsessed about correcting, dealing with that wrong. One thing that I've talked about on Twitter and other places as a point of irony is that I'm born at the very end of Scorpio, but my brother, my bigger older brother, who's now no longer with us, but he was born at the very beginning of Scorpio. And I saw this obsessive quality with him. And especially when he felt wronged, and it sometimes could be very extreme. You know, yeah, I don't know if we're getting into personal anecdotes, but that's one particular thing I could go into in terms of where I saw an expression of that. No, that's perfect because it brings up something that Kira mentioned earlier. And I was thinking about it, which is sometimes a tendency to take things overly personally and the tendency that Kyra mentioned, which is not letting go like being unable to let go of things and sometimes that can extend to holding on to perceived slights, even for years afterwards, I remember having a Scorpio person that I used to have like a light interactions with and then I stopped hearing from him much. I didn't really think anything of it. And then I found out years later that he held a grudge against me for some minor thing that I didn't show up to an event that I had a conference or something I didn't think was that important, but it really impacted him and he had held onto it for years. And it was like it reminded me. I thought it was really interesting and fascinating teaching thing at the time because I sort of understood then where that was coming from and I could see also the impulse and myself sometimes to do things like that as a universal Scorpio thing of sometimes taking things overly personally and then not letting go of it or struggling sometimes to let go of things. I think it becomes stagnant water. Yeah. I mean, there's still people that I'm mad at for certain things that happen to

Guy Reschenthaler: I Do Not Trust the FBI
"Congressman, another big story we're following the FBI. I'm going to ask you a very simple question. Do you trust the FBI? Yes, not at all. Please just call me guys. Look, the FBI has been corrupt from its very founding under J. Edgar Hoover. They worked in tandem, for example, with LBJ and other elected officials to get dirt on politicians so that their selected senators and congressmen can move up the ranks. They did surveillance on political figures and celebrities within the United States throughout history. And that hasn't changed. And the fact that you had the FBI going to Zuckerberg before the election saying that Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation. While at the same time, the FBI had possession of the laptop, which showed it wasn't Russian disinformation. That shows you that they were trying to interfere with the 2020 election. They also tried to hamstring the Trump administration, which to a degree they did when Jim Comey set up Trump and set up Flynn in the others when they were giving their incoming briefing. So I think the FBI needs to be reined in, much like we had to rein in the CIA back in the 70s where they were running around assassinating foreign foreign leaders. That needed more oversight. But we need to look at perhaps dividing the FBI and making sure they're silos, a function, and we just don't have this big mega agency that is trying to fix political elections, go after political opponents and really be the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party.

"Hat tip to a.m. greatness. They always have great columns there. I love reading Julie Kelly there as much as possible on the J 6 protesters that political prisoners in other words. All right, just real quick. This guy, a guy by the name of Kyle scheidler. He says the FBI can not be saved. He was part of the organization. This guy is speaking from experience. So let me just quickly give you some of the bona fides if you'll just bear with me for a second. All right, his bona fides. He says we're on the time he was 7 years old. Until the age of 20, he was in love with the FBI. In second grade while other kids wanted to be firemen and wanted to he wanted to be a special agent and he said he could have told you what one was, what they did and what the requirements were to become one at the age of 7 guys in the early 90s. He said his favorite show was FBI, the untold stories. He said if he wasn't at home from cup sky from cup scouts in time for it to air, there was a tantrum that he would throw. He said he even did a book report on Jay Edgar Hoover on the J. Edgar Hoover biography in middle school. He talks about the Holy Land foundation. He says, his zeal had mellowed as he grew older, but never entirely disappeared as I began my career looking at counter terrorism policy. I'm meticulously studied the FBI's extensive investigation of the Holy Land foundation. That's the largest Islamic charity in the United States of America. And that was which was successfully convicted of financing the terror group Hamas.

John Zmirak Draws Parallels Between MLK and Donald Trump
"Know that J. Edgar Hoover's FBI was wicked. They were evil. They were anti Americans with tremendous power in the middle of the American government. Given that power, they did every kind of harm, we ought not to put it past them to want to murder people. They did kill people. We know just what we know is that they surveilled Martin Luther King's private life. They found out about his extramarital affairs. They found out that he had plagiarized his dissertation in his speech. They found out that he was willing to accept support from communists and black Muslims and other extremist groups. And they tried to blackmail him. They tried to silence him. They tried to blackmail others into not supporting him. The FBI is now being weaponized. You can Donald Trump and his supporters. Worst. I mean, they never raided Martin Luther King's home, although I have to say state police, where the really terrible ones in the case of Martin Luther King. The police controlled in places like Alabama and Mississippi and Georgia, those state police forces were real problem because they were run by openly racist governors. So parallels are not perfect, okay? But they are striking.

"You come from an FBI family. What are you suppose, where are we today? Because I think that power, of course, corrupts, that's human nature. We know that the temptation to corruption and to doing these kinds of things. Whenever you have power, and then the emergence of what we today call the deep state and those that these ideas, the idea is that there are people acting kind of independently thinking they're doing a good thing, part of a bureaucracy. I mean, look, it goes all the way back to J. Edgar Hoover. But it really seems to have borne fruit, full fruit, horribly, lately, with struck and page and so on and so forth. What is the moral do you suppose in the FBI today? I don't know if you can comment on it. But I mean, it's just, it's always horrifying to Americans when you find out that people in these agencies that you once trusted were really not they were not all in on the founder's vision of America. Let's put it that way. Exactly. And I've got to preface it with 99.9% of the line agents out there are doing God's work and getting the bad guys and putting them away and they go into it for the right reasons to do that. But it's these rogue agents that, you know, for whatever warped reasons and there are different reasons for different people, go ahead and do this. And they really stay in the reputation of the FBI in general. And that is so sad for me to see and for my dad to see because like I said, you know, the people that I worked with, my dad and the people that he worked with really solid citizens apolitical about their job and this should be should not be politicized. You know, law enforcement in general should not be politicized. People may have their views one way or the other, but they should stop at the FBI doors when they enter, right? It's all about keeping us safe and getting the bad guys. And anything that hurts that reputation hurts a line agents out there trying to good work. Well, it is just amazing. And whenever, I mean, it's the same with the church. I mean, you can only imagine that people were who were in his parish and who thought of him as a serious faithful Christian, then find out that you could hardly be more wicked than what he did and how it hurts the faith. And I guess did any of the you mentioned a priest were any of these people dealt with, did they did they pay any price, it's kind of amazing that they were around this and that they somehow didn't do anything or didn't see the red flags, I don't know. No, not that I know of. I mean, the collateral damage of course is Brian Kelly that CIA agent, who really has led to his demise. His kids, his wife, embarrassed humiliated, you know, her life pretty much destroyed. So we had people around him that were extremely hurt by this, but you know, I don't think that anybody in certainly not that priest. He's never, it was never reprimanded for that. And it's kind of.

I want them to know that you work for RN, you work for Gerald Ford, you work for Ronald Reagan, you work for Clinton. But you have different sort of styles and roles for each of them. Let's start with president Nixon. What'd you do in the Nixon White House? Nixon White House, I came in, I've been in the navy. I went to law school and I went in the navy for three and a half years. My last year, you know, I was assigned to come back to come to Washington to work on draft reform. That was the time when Nixon had launched a random lottery to determine what draft number you got and whether you're going to go to Vietnam or not. And we tried to clean that up, they ran a bogus in some ways, I ran the moderator first year out. I'll tell you, you have time for a little story. We got lots of time. We can go a long time today. Okay, super. Well, so the next one out of The White House orders a random lottery to determine who goes to Vietnam. The Lewis Hershey was then head of the draft. He was sort of the J. Edgar Hoover of the drafts. And so Hershey did something they did back in the Second World War, which was a very popular war. They got a bowl, they got capsules, and they put January 1 in the first capsule, put it in a bowl, and then January 2, all the days of January, then February, all the way up through the days of December the last ones into the boat. Got a spoon started up a little bit. Put it in the closet. And then on the day on the random monitor, they brought it to bowl, reached in for number one, you ought to Vietnam. And it was like November 15th. And then all of the early all of the early numbers and all of the early draws were from late in the year. So the whole thing was tilted.
Game of Crimes
"j. edgar hoover" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"Say it. Yeah, yeah, no, one thing about the FBI, they definitely took interest in making sure you were doing the right thing. Now J. Edgar Hoover didn't want agents to go back home. He always said, listen, you're going to work in any city in the country, but you're not going back to your home. Ever. And he felt that if you were in obligation to somebody or you had debt to somebody and you were corrupt and I said, you know, thinking about the psychology of that, I'm thinking, listen, if you're corrupt, I'm going to be corrupt and date in Ohio, as much as I am an eerie. It doesn't matter where you are. It's a character flaw. It's not a location or a geographic issue. So then the FBI finally realized, hey, maybe this has the benefit. And I can't tell you the benefit of being back in eerie or in a city that you're from, where people would pick up a phone and say, hey, I'm glad you're here because I know about this situation. Can you help me with that? And otherwise they wouldn't call a they might not call a total stranger, but they're going to call Jerry because they know Jerry they grew up with Jerry. But they also know Jerry's an FBI agent, so it's not like, hey, I'm not here to get you out of your traffic tickets. I'm not here, you know, if you do wrong, I'm going to come after you, but at the same time, you're there to protect your community. Now I got one funny J. Edgar Hoover story. And it's not the one you think. But it's during World War II. There was a memo written by the FBI agents talking about they thought there were German spies and stuff and there were some operations they wanted to do. So Hoover makes a couple notes and sends it back to him. He says, watch the borders. So they assign like a hundred agents to watch the borders only about a year later did they find out J Edgar was such a stickler for punctuation and stuff. He meant watch the borders of the page. Don't get outside the margin. Oh my God. There's some funny jazz stories. I'll tell you that. Who is the director when you came on? So it was Louis free when I came on. Okay, so Louis free action handed credentials. He went for a run. He would come down to the academy and actually run with every academy class down there, which was sort of those runs down there.

And that is that it will endure over generations there are two and that it endures in repeated hearings for any given listener. Will Frank Sinatra endure, I think we think so, would you agree Robin? Absolutely. I think we think so and a measure of it perhaps is in sheer longevity and endurance as a test, we worked on this book so not for the life for the past four years.

"I saw his worst excesses and best intentions by paul karski. Low-tar ski is the author of the director. My years assisting j. edgar hoover published by scripture. Some people have tough bosses back in nineteen sixty. Six mine was one of the most feared men in america. J. edgar hoover had been running the fbi for an unfathomable forty one years on the morning. I was scheduled to report for duty as his assistant. Then only twenty three years old. I was a bit nervous about the assignment and made sure to arrive at the bureau building early so i could do a pre check of the great man's office and the years that followed i would come to see two sides of the director and indeed i would come to see two sides of the fbi. Where i was determined to shy realizing that there are often equally true. But opposed sides. To a story was one impetus for sitting down all these years later and writing a memoir of my time working for hoover. Sure i wanted my grandkids to have a record of what grandpa had experienced but it also seemed important in light of recent events to remind people that law enforcement usually begins with good intentions sadly and periodically a gravitational effect works against balance the hoover. Whose whims i catered to. Every day most admittedly clerical some highly personal and quirky could often seem larger than life to a certain extent hoover had earned the fierce allegiance that bureau agents paid him he was sworn enemy of the bad guy and most of the time his sense of who the bad guy was proved spot on the also could be morally courageous such as when he initially counselled. The roosevelt administration not to intern japanese during world war two but sometimes zeal and hidebound view of the real america as locked in a life and death struggle against a range of subversives prompted him to cast his investigative nets to wide on hoover's desk said a notebook containing all the outstanding wiretaps. The bureau then had running. Occasionally i'd furtively steal a glance at notebooks. cryptically worded notations and just down the hall only yards away. we're locked cabinets containing the voluminous secret files that made everyone official washington weak-kneed as they pondered what might be hiding there. I'm quite sure that the director never thought he was doing anything. Less than god's work but yes. The files clearly overstepped the b. is charged to go after the bad guys containing tidbits of many who earned the bureau's attention simply because their ideology was then thought of as liberal or because these individuals were prominent enough to impede the directors aims one in two thousand five. There was much fanfare because the national archives finally brought into its domain hoover's privately secret files for examination by scholars..

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.
True Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest
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
Making Gay History
"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.

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.

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

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.

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
