"You're enjoying the best stop program with flight Travis and buck Sexton. Second hour of the clay Travis and buck Sexton show starts now. Thanks everybody for joining or for hanging with us if you're with us in the first hour. Remember the clan buck podcast, a great place to catch up if you missed any part of what we're talking about here. Clay and buck dot com also for transcripts and all the rest, but if you go to the clay Travis and buck Sexton show on the iHeart app, great thing to do. A bit of general advice, and it is whenever you see that there is a show with a 90 plus percent audience score and sub 50 on the critics. It's a show you want to see. Because it means that everyone loves it, but the critics hated for some reason that has nothing to do with whether or not it's entertaining. And an example of this would be clay. Have you seen the terminal list yet? I've heard it's great. No, I have not. Have you watched it? I have watched every episode of the terminal list. Jack Carr is a friend. I've known Jack for a few years now. So explain, explain this show, 'cause I bet there's a lot of our audience that would like it. Explain this show for people like me who know it exists, but have no concept of what it's about. So it's a, the main character is played by Chris Pratt, is a navy seal named James Reese, who comes home after some special operations abroad, their ambush, I don't want to give much away, but there's a sinister plot that goes to the heart of the military industrial complex and basically Chris Pratt is running around taking out bad guys, lots of the tactical sequences are very well done. They bring in seals and people with similar expertise so that the actual gun battles and everything look really cool. I mean, they do a good job with that as entertainment. But they hate it because there's no wokeness, okay? There's no, there's no social like, in that way, it's like Top Gun: Maverick, which has been in theaters for some odd 70 some odd days and is now the most successful paramount movie of all time. It passed Titanic. That's how successful it is. But I mean, even that movie clay. Just to be fair, who's the bad guy? It's like a make believe country in Eastern Europe or something. I mean, you know, they work. They're going for the global market. I get it, and apparently we don't make movies anymore. We're fighting other countries. But even in the original Top Gun we know who the bad guy was. Everyone assumed it was the Soviet Union, right with the red star on the helmets, but yeah, I'm just saying, it wasn't woke, but it wasn't like it wasn't team America world police either. You know what I mean? It wasn't going too hard with the stars and stripes and the flag. But okay, but so Ron tomatoes, 94% audience score for this. It's a good show because one thing that Kerry and I have been struggling with is we're trying to find a show to watch that we can both enjoy together. And you watch stuff and you go, is everything just green lit by the editorial team at MSNBC now. I mean, it's all so it's such trash. And ten years ago, I feel like Netflix and HBO, there was this golden age where they were just making amazing program. They're just making great series. You know, whether Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones and narcos and, you know, they're making all these great shows. Now, of course, the corporations that are behind all this. We want to be progressive and social justice in their show suck, which is not surprising. But I will say, in fairness, we did find one show that I one movie I should say that I would recommend to everybody. I made Kerry watch this movie the outfit a couple weeks ago. That wasn't really worth. That was okay. It was like a B minus. It wasn't well, but it just wasn't really that good. It was okay. But we watched this 13 lives. Have you seen this? Are you familiar with this one? It's about the Thai youth boys. Oh, oh yeah, yeah. Soccer is fascinated by that story. For everybody out there, this was the soccer team that got caught in the cave. And they flooded and they weren't able to get out. How is the Ron Howard made this one, right? The movie is excellent. Yeah, highly, highly watchable, really moves along, and the way they film this, that they originally, as I read a little bit about it, I was curious, they were actually trying to film a lot of it in the caves, but they weren't able to do that for reasons. I don't even know now. So they moved that I think to Queensland in north Australia. Because obviously the actual cave is in Thailand, but it's amazing. I will say this, there are few things in the world that I would find more terrifying than having to spend 6 hours underwater 5 and a half, 6 hours underwater in a cave with fast moving currents where at some points the cave is about shoulder width. So I couldn't even darkness. Claustrophobia, the imminent prospect of death if you run out of oxygen or if you just hit your head and there's any number, it is really well done. I've been trying to tell folks about it. I remember that story, the story is even more, in many ways, unbelievable and in the end inspiring than I remembered it from the news reports. It's crazy what they did to get there. I mean, that crazy is in line. They should have done any, but what they managed to pull off with those kids to get them. I don't want to give it all away. Well, I think everybody knows the kids. It's a true story. That's right. 'cause it's true story. But that story was captivating to follow and such an ennobling story because every day you thought, oh, they're going to find the kids and they're not going to be alive. That was sort of the subtext of this is a flooded cave. There's no way these kids are going to have survived for this long. And when they finally found them, then it's, oh my goodness, how in the world are we ever going to get them out of here? And they managed to do it. Speaking of the terminal list, there's an article up at out kick, one of our good writers that we hired recently, David hooke said, if you haven't already, we had an incredible month, but out kick is kind of like mana from heaven if you're a sports fan or just a fan of pop culture and you think everything has gone woke. We got a good article about it that went up today about the terminal list. 1.6 billion minutes of viewership on Netflix only show was the most recent show Stranger Things season four is the only show that's beaten it in terms of popularity. So I'll just point this out. Culture is important in terms of what it's saying about what society is interested in right now. Yellowstone is by far the most popular show on television. Other than sports. It doesn't get nominated for any Emmys. Wildly popular. Terminal list evidently on Netflix insanely popular Top Gun: Maverick. What do all three of those movies and or shows have in common? Relatively limited woke material and or USA USA USA, right? That is what they are overall selling is United States excellence. And I think there's a huge demand for that. You can tell very quickly in a lot of these shows. I mean, to this point, clay, I could even take a, I think there's a step even before that, what you're talking about is the manifestation of or the way that the show actually tells the story, right? Is that it focuses on those things. I think it really also comes down to when they're sitting in the writers room, is the most important thing that they want to obtain, entertain, and engage the audience, or is it that they want to get a pat on the back for the agenda and the messaging behind this? Because I think you see a lot of shows where they start with a premise, which is, oh, let's make this about, you know, let's make this about some left wing woke agenda item instead of, is this gonna be a good story? Is this gonna bring people in? And you know, you brought up, what was the huge show that everyone was, oh my gosh, why is this such a success? Similar numbers, I think, to Yellowstone from years ago, was The Walking Dead, right? And The Walking Dead is a show where you take a graphic novel and you're just trying to make the most

"Missed it. Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. This is part of that psychology. Day very Baggio that one over the bar, didn't it? Yeah, I was at that game. I saw Baggio do it. He just got the run up was wrong. Pressure does amazing things to a human. I'm sure he would make that penalty 9 out of ten times and this was the one out of ten pressure gets to you. I love the fact that Jude Bellingham was the first person up to him with his arm around him. If any England player is going to miss the penalty in that situation, I'm glad it's Harry Kane because Harry Kane is a professional. He is so respected across the English game. He's a great enough player that he can withstand that moment. He's achieved so much in the game. He will achieve way more in the game going forward, but yet heart wrenching and his apology to his teammates him his taking responsibility for it after the game is really crushing heartbreaking. And we saw Laurie go the right way overcompensated or as carin O 9 tweeted us, saint tottering them's day is now a national holiday. At chip Sanders ten said, and this is true. And agony, no one will remember Kane's 53 goals for his country, they will only remember the one mess that slightly exaggerated, but how English had kind of work. And as prophesied in my insta live, England did find a new way to implode a new way to torture the nation in new way to layer trauma on top of trauma on top of past trauma, buried alive on national dreams and to have to have the hero be the one to implode in this moment, like the captain, just the talisman, Harry Kane, to have him destroyed. I was watching it. It reminded me of a true too at the end of platoon where sergeant Elias is just like that breathe death in battle. That's what it felt like. We lost our hero. And just look at them bap a's empathetic reaction. I mean, to be honest, he looks like he's taking a crap at that point. Anyway, if the French do not have a word for schadenfreude, they now have a gift for it. And that GIF is, how do you say now we all laugh on francais? Rashford grey's a bar at the death with almost the last kick of the ball and the final whistle, just a human agony for Harry Kay. Really, we discussed in the wake of the Euro final penalty mesh rashford saka Sancho, keen to record goal scorer. He's a talisman and he should not become a target for keyboard warriors, but the reality is already watching Twitter today in a slightly sick unhinged world. He will. And looking for him in that moment, Gareth Southgate was his manager, David, that Euro 96 miss an empathy, a calming presence, this positives a young core and the fact they truly faced it. This was an excellent French team. They battled them, had 55% possession, she did the game lost it, but shaded it. England's longing day. I don't care about them, but 58 years. It's a long time. It continues. What's your feeling? Because you do get look, I think this was a this was a very, very different experience. And I think for any England fans in here tonight, I think you'll probably agree with me watching this game is that I am just incredibly proud of how this team played today. I mean, just we have lost games. This is the best performance I've seen by England in a major tournament in my life because I was not that conscious when I was three months old in 1966 when England won it. This is the best I've seen England play in any major tournament. I think this was worthy of a World Cup final. We bossed them in midfield. We played fantastically. It was a very, very different thing than the lost of Croatia in the last World Cup. It was a very different thing than lost to Italy in the Euros. And I know we've had to read a lot of tweets about the age of the U.S. team going into the next World Cup, but you look at this England team. Next World Cup Bellingham 22 saka 24 rashford 28 fold and 26 mount 27 James Reese James 26 Ben Chilwell 29 ramsdale 28 TAA 27 Connor Gallagher 26 Ben white 28 James Madison 29.

"Welcome back to the Jimbo had a show we're talking to Scott spacing. He is the author of China hand from post hill press. It is a novel, a thriller inspired by actual events we are told. Introduce us, if you would, to Andrew Callaghan. So Andrew Callaghan, the protagonist in the book is a 22 year old American. He's just graduated from college and like many young people. He goes off to China to work on the language and have a little adventure. So he has an opportunity to teach at a university in China and he goes off preparing for the adventure of his life. But then what happens is the CIA approaches him and informs them that his beautiful colleague and emerging love interest is actually the daughter of the top general who's on the verge of defecting to the United States and they need his help to get her and the general's family out. So he's sort of dragged unexpectedly into what it's supposed to be as simple operation, but these things never work out that way. And it turns into a run for his life as he flees the country with the full power of the Chinese state after him and lily, the daughter of the general. It would not be a major stretch of the imagination to assume that Andrew Callaghan is Scott spacek. Well, I'm going to plead the 5th a little bit on that, but I'll say the character is definitely inspired by a number of real events, things involving me and not involving me, but what I often say is in the same way that Jack Carr has drawn on a lot of real events and experiences as a navy seal to create Jane's REITs, Jack Carr is not James Reese and I'm not exactly Andrew Kelly on either. So I'll just leave it at that. All right. Inspired by actual events, were you aware of or party two discussions that involved the defection of a high Chinese official? Well, there were a number of things that I was not involved in all of these by any stretch. But part of the inspiration was in December of 2000. So I actually taught back in 1998 99 and in December of 2000, a Chinese kernel named children ping actually defected to the U.S. while with a military delegation. And that just got me thinking. It was only reported lightly in the news. And they made it sound like he could just leave because he often traveled to the U.S. in his military capacity. And just kind of thinking, did he have a family, how did they get out? Because clearly, he probably had some family members in China who presume that we would just leave them behind. And related to that, I was aware of a Princeton professor soon after Tiananmen Square, who was involved in helping a dissident actually who was under hulk house arrest in China, flee to the U.S. embassy in Beijing. And I put the two together and sort of said, you know, imagine if the Chinese colonel's family needed help and just like the Princeton professor helped that dissident get out, what if a random young American just living and living in China had to be had to be involved in this plot? And I tried to weave in a bunch of other either real events that happened in the world around that time, whether the U.S. bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade or other events as well as things involving the CIA and Chinese politics. I tried to weave those in as well as a bunch of my own experiences. I used to box in China. I had I did have a lot of interactions with U.S. diplomats and business people at the time. And I tried to kind of weave it all together into an authentic, but hopefully fun kind of espionage adventure story. Yeah, and I would agree. I think you have succeeded in that regard. If in real life, let's say a Chinese general decided to defect in an American decided to help that person and they were both caught. What would happen to the Chinese official? Well, I can't say in a completely hypothetical situation, but they certainly do not look kindly on any perceptions of disloyalty. So there's one case and I'm forgetting exactly the name and exactly the context I know. I know there was one case of a suspected spy for the CIA and my understanding is he had a pregnant wife and I think they shot. His pregnant wife in front of him before they shot him in front of a crowd of other people to kind of set an example. So I think I'm always, I shouldn't say surprised. It's probably a good thing about the U.S. system that we presume innocent much more, but it is interesting to see the relative leniency often given in the U.S. relative to what you see certainly in China. And what would happen to the American who was helping this Chinese official defect. Well, my guess certainly he could get the same treatment, what you've also seen, though, as you currently see with some of the discussions with Russia over the WNBA player of Brittany, I think it's griner or greener, I'm not sure how to pronounce it. You could also imagine in that hold somebody to potentially trade them for one of their own spies. But it certainly wouldn't be a pleasant experience to be in a Chinese jail so that yeah, that was sort of what I was thinking. One 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo as our number one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 I'm just trying to use my imagination here and all of this I would think is certainly in other words let me put it this way just for writing this book. My guess would be that you would not be welcome back in China. Just tell me if you think I'm wrong. Well, I don't know. As I said for this and related reasons, I've had to use a pseudonym I'm pretty open about that. But I should be clear with your audience and potential readers. I mean, this is not, this is not a caricature of China. It's not an anti China China book. What I often say to people, look, I spent 2025 years of my life primarily living and working in China and studying the language and I really did fall in love with the people and culture. It's a fascinating place, rich rich culture and in many ways a fascinating society and people. So I have many, many positive things to say about China. And I actually should also say that there's relatively books I relatively few books in movies I find that really capture that nuance and capture both the good and the bad of China. And so just as what I often say is, just as there are espionage stories involving other countries, other normal countries like the U.S. or Israel or UK or Russia, why can't there be an authentic espionage story involving China involving a general cotton power struggle? A hypothetical power struggle 20 years ago. I

The best listeners, guys. That liner from that listener, an immigrant veteran. This country owes me nothing I owe it everything. God bless every single one of you, happy Friday. It is Friday, Second Amendment Friday complacency is a weakness that we patriots can not afford for this reason car firearms is teaming up with us here at America first. Car believes Americans shouldn't be afraid to publicly stand up and advocate for our liberties. This is about more than being a gun enthusiast. This has become a very personal issue as we struggle for the soul of our republic. Carr wants America first listen to know that they are not afraid to publicly support Second Amendment Fridays. Check out their amazing line of U.S. made weapons at kahr dot com. I carry a 9 millimeter meter car they also own the iconic line of desert eagles, auto audience 19 11s Thompson's you name it, just go to HR dot com dot com. We are back with lieutenant commander U.S. Navy seal Jack car the author of terminal list and numerous other books you need to read today. We're going to talk about the foundations he supports, but now we have to discuss Chris Pratt as commander Reese, the hero or is he a hero? I don't want to give it away, but what do you call him? Is he a hero? Because he gets up to some pretty dark staff commander. He does. He does. And to me, he always is. He's the protagonist. He's the main character. He's the hero. It was interesting when the show came out to hear people label him an anti hero or ask the question about is he an anti hero, which is a more popular term, from the late 90s in popular culture onward. But to me, yeah, he's a hero. He's the little guy. He's the person the establishment wants to crush. And in this case, actually kill and remove from the battlefield. And but, of course, they messed with the wrong person. And he has this skill set that also, but he also thinks he's dying. And that was important to me because growing up in the 80s, that voice-over that they would have in the movie theaters before trailers that would always say something like he has nothing left to lose. And I always thought, well, he could die, or he could go to prison or there's all sorts of things to lose. And I really needed to put a modern day warrior in essentially what the ancient samurai would do. And that sort of a mindset. And they would go into battle thinking they were already dead because they thought that made them more effective and efficient warriors. So I thought, how do you do that in today's day and age? And I went back to the church hearings of the 70s and some of the some overreach by certain agencies in the federal government testing of drugs on prisoners on mental institution patients, college students, and members of the military. And so I put that in modern day and put him in a situation. James Reese, where he thinks he is dying. And so he has to complete this list and use all the skills, but also essentially become the insurgent that he had been fighting, or at that time, the last 16 years, now it would be 20 years at war. So he becomes this insurgent using the tactics and techniques that the enemy used against us against people in this country who gave his tumors and took out his family. So it was very therapeutic to write on many levels. I'm sure. I'm sure it is absolutely binge worthy guys..

He looks movie critic joins us right now to review Chris Pratt's new one. The terminal list. Taylor marr. Hey, you know, this caught my eye on Amazon Prime because I have read the book series that it's based on, and this is the first of 5 books. It's written by former navy seal, Jack Carr. They're all adventure books. But what really sealed the deal on watching it was Chris Pratt playing the main character, James Reese. And I became a Chris Pratt fan watching parks and rec. Okay, borrower Parks and Recreation. And that is one of my 5 top comedies on TV ever. And he played the office buffoon Andy dwyer from 2009 to 2015. And he was excellent in that part. He was the goofiest guy ever. And then all of a sudden, he shows up 60 pounds lighter and cut like a bodybuilder for a small part as the navy seal in zero dark 30. And I was like, no way. So 50 years later in 2014, he snatches the lead in Guardians of the Galaxy. Follows that up in 2015 with Jurassic World and he hadn't looked back since and I love this guy because he is so laughable and so funny, but at the same time in this type of movie, he's a total badass. And I think his range is very, very wide. Now this is an 8 episode series, it's on Prime Video, and he plays James Reese, I say it. He leads a navy SEAL Team on a mission to bring down this notorious bomb maker. But something goes terribly wrong on the mission and his entire team is ambushed and when he gets back home, things don't seem right, his memories comes and goes. He loses his concentration, sort of blacks out here and there turns out they were giving an experimental drug and it was sort of a test and whatever some sort of corporate blah blah blah. And so when people start trying to kill him and they go after his family at home, he decides it's up to him to make it right. He only has two people he can trust a guy named Ben who's played by Taylor kitsch and a journalist named Katie, who's played by Kostas Wu. And so these are 55 minute episodes, the money and the greed that's behind this is tracked down to this list of people and they're the ones that's brought all of this on him. And so Reese will not stop, of course, until he's killed them and yes, this is a pure and simple revenge movie. And I love a good revenge movie. I mean, I just really do. I love a good prepared movie. And the episodes are 55 minutes, and there's 8 of them. It's ready TV MA for bloody violence. And I'm talking about a lot of bloody violence. It's inevitable, though, that any time a movie is made based on a book, the director can not just stick with the book. They have to add something or take something away. And that's exactly what happened with this series. They have completely changed the ending. And I don't have a problem with the ending they have come up with. It's fine. But it was not better than the one that was in the book. So why would you change it? I don't get it. When you have something, yeah, when you have something that is perfect, why don't you leave it alone? I mean, different is not always better. That is exactly how we got this whole turkey bacon thing, okay? Some guys go on. Wow. Miss bacon is really good. It's actually the perfect food. So I'm gonna change it. And I'm gonna make it better. No, it doesn't always work that way. One of the things about this is, I'm a little bit surprised to see Chris Pratt at this point in his career 'cause I mean, it's going. And for him to be doing another series on prime, but then you look at John Krasinski, he scheduled for a third season of Jack Ryan, so hey, they're getting paid. And it's not hurting them. So, you know, the show is somewhat predictable, but the action is really good. The revenge is sweet and I love Chris Pratt. So my score on this is four solid Budweiser. You've already got Prime Video, just go ahead and click on it if you don't like it, don't watch it. I'm telling you, I love it. I love it. I think America. I think America is primed for revenge right now. I think this could be a movie type that would be making a big Charles Bronson sort of comeback. Yeah. Right there. Stay right there.

"This weekend? Well, minions, the rise of gru is it does have people going to the theaters already. In the Thursday night previews, it brought in $10.8 million, which it's very hard to extrapolate the Thursday night out to what it means for us Sunday. Final for the weekend. But those are very good numbers. Better than expected. In fact, now people think it has a shot at making a $100 million this weekend in North America, which is great. Definitely with the box office needed because there was kind of a question mark because of what happened with light year, the Pixar movie a couple of weeks ago, which didn't do as well as expected. So the fact that this is on that path is very, very good. Plus, you still have Top Gun: Maverick in theaters as well, which I think is a perfect kind of July 4th weekend movie. And I think we're going to see a lot of people going to that. So the two of those combined, I think, is going to make for healthy box office. Plus, you still have Elvis left over from last weekend as well, which did pretty well. So there's a lot for the first time in a couple of years. There's a lot to see in the theaters on July 4th. Back to minions of course, we're kind of familiar with those characters. That is this story stack up this time around. I didn't get a chance to see it but the reviews have been good if you're a fan of the minions and the Despicable Me franchise. This is more of that. You have Steve Carell, who's back. This time grew who he plays. The supervillain or he's the 12 year old wanna be super villain. This is kind of like an origin story. And you have him still doing the voice though. They didn't recast that. And a terrific cast of George P Henson, rizza, Jean-Claude Van Damme. Julie Andrews, just a bunch of people. Of course you may not want to battle the crowds and traffic, so as always you don't have to leave home to find some entertainment this weekend either, do you? That is very true, especially if you want to watch a lot of Stranger Things or a lot of two episodes of Stranger Things. The ending of season four is out today, already causing some problems people streaming it a lot. And it is just two episodes, but they are super sized episodes. Episode 8 is almost 90 minutes an hour and a half and the finale is almost two and a half hours. So that is a lot. You hear two episodes and you think two hours, but it's almost four hours. It's almost double the amount of content that you're going to get. And I know a lot of fans are excited because they liked what they've seen so far. The first 7 episodes of Stranger Things. Of course, we have something with Chris Pratt as well. Yeah, the terminal list is a new show on Prime Video. It's an adaptation of Jack Carr's bestselling novel. Chris Pratt plays a navy seal. James Reese, who his whole unit is wiped out in a conflict and he comes back home and his family is threatened as well. And he's not sure what's going on. Is this really happening? Or is it PTSD?

I've always eaten a lot since there was a child we used to go to buffets regularly and I would compete with my stepfather to see who could eat the most plates. 5 years ago, Marysville resident Katie prettyman started watching competitive eaters on YouTube and she was hooked. So my new year's resolution for 2018 instead of losing weight was to become a competitive eater. In just four years, Katie has become the 35th ranked female major league eater, chowing down tamales, corn on the cob and croquettas. And of course, hot dogs. She's entered in the iconic Nathan's famous 4th of July contest and started training about two months ago. It drank a large quantity of water, and then I eat pounds upon pounds of steamed vegetables, cottage cheese, chicken. And then I tried to add more water on top of that. Pretty men tells me she has regular doctor visits to make sure competitive eating is not damaging her body. Consuming tube steaks on the same Coney Island ESPN stage with Joey the jaws chestnut. Kobayashi and women's world champion Mickey sudo isn't adrenaline rush.

"Us this evening. I'm Rick fancy along with editor Bill O'Neill. In headlines, Ukrainian president zelensky says the U.S. decision to send more assistance to his country is historic. The Pentagon announcing a new $820 million package of military supplies to be sent to the war torn nation as it fights off the Russian invasion. The Washington State Department of Transportation says Amtrak train service to Vancouver BC from Seattle will resume in September months earlier than originally planned. Route has been suspended since the early weeks of the pandemic when the Canadian border was closed to non-essential travel. And along holiday weekend typically means busy movie theaters around the country will it happen again this time around, closer look now with ABC's Jason nathanson, who spoke with Bill O'Neill. Okay, Jason, what's new in theaters this weekend? Well, minions the rise of gru is it does have people going to the theaters already in the Thursday night previews that brought in $10.8 million, which it's very hard to extrapolate the Thursday night out to what it means for us Sunday. Final for the weekend. But those are very good numbers. Better than expected. In fact, now people think it has a shot at making a $100 million this weekend in North America, which is great. Definitely with the box office needed because there was kind of a question mark because of what happened with light year, the Pixar movie a couple of weeks ago, which didn't do as well as expected. So the fact that this is on that path is very, very good. Plus, you still have Top Gun: Maverick in theaters as well, which I think is a perfect kind of July 4th weekend movie. And I think we're going to see a lot of people going to that. So the two of those combined, I think, is going to make for healthy box office. Plus, you still have Elvis left over from last weekend as well, which did pretty well. So there's a lot for the first time in a couple of years. There's a lot to see in the theaters on July 4th. Back to minions of course, we're kind of familiar with those characters. How does this story stack up this time around? I didn't get a chance to see it but the reviews have been good if you're a fan of the minions and the Despicable Me franchise. This is more of that. You have Steve Carell, who's back. This time grew who he plays. The supervillain or he's a 12 year old wanna be super billion. This is kind of like an origin story. And you have him still doing the voice though. They didn't recast that. And a terrific cast of George P Henson, rizza, Jean-Claude Van Damme. Julie Andrews, just a bunch of people. Of course you may not want to battle the crowds and traffic, so as always you don't have to leave home to find some entertainment this weekend either, do you? That is very true, especially if you want to watch a lot of Stranger Things or a lot of two episodes of Stranger Things. The ending of season four is out today, already causing some problems people streaming it a lot. And it is just two episodes, but they are super sized episodes. Episode 8 is almost 90 minutes an hour and a half and the finale is almost two and a half hours. So that is a lot. You hear two episodes and you think two hours, but it's almost four hours. It's almost double the amount of content that you're going to get. And I know a lot of fans are excited because they liked what they've seen so far. The first 7 episodes of Stranger Things. Of course, we have something with Chris Pratt as well. Yeah, the terminal list is a new show on Prime Video. It's an adaptation of Jack Carr's bestselling novel. Chris Pratt plays a navy seal. James Reese, who his whole unit is wiped out in a conflict, and he comes back home and his family is threatened as well. And he's not sure what's going on. Is this really happening? Or is it PTSD? Are things happening inside his head that he's kind of conflating with other things? He's not really sure. It's a whole conspiracy theory type thing? Or is it? We don't really know. And so it's Chris Pratt. Taylor kitsch Constance Wu, gene triple horn, a great cast, I liked it. There's some major plot holes and it's getting torn apart in some reviews.

"I'm doctor Anthony Elizabeth, and this is climate connections. In southern and central Minnesota, people are collecting seeds from red oak, river birch, and other local tree species. Then farmers grow these seeds into seedlings that will be planted in the states northern forests. The project started with research by Julie Anderson of the university of Minnesota Duluth. She says as northern Minnesota warms is becoming less suitable for cold loving trees, like quaking Aspen and paper birch. And so about ten years ago we started this work where we took species that are predicted to do well with climate change, local populations, and populations from further south and planted them up into the northeast corner of Minnesota. She says the ones from seed gathered farther south are growing faster and surviving better. And so this experiment gave us confidence that this method of forest adaptation is actually a successful approach that might be more broadly implemented in our state to retain forest cover and increase worse resilience.

"On it. Okay, good deal. We're working on getting Jack car. He's the author of the new book beyond just a few minutes. A couple of weeks. See if we can get him on just a minute here. Give him a caller. It's always fun when you find an author who you really enjoy reading. And especially if it just keeps coming out, he or she comes out with books that July can go, can't wait for the next one. Can't wait for the next one. And that's the way it was when I started reading Jack Carr in his books, the protagonist is James Reese, former seal. Well, that works out pretty nicely since Jack Carr himself. He is a former CIA who joins us right now. Jack, thanks for being with us. Congrats on the new book, man. Thank you so much. And thanks for having me on. I always love talking to you. And yeah, I feel so fortunate that I get to have done one thing that I wanted to do with my life, which is to serve our nation in this field teams. And then now to be writing thrillers, which is the other thing that I wanted to do. So extremely fortunate every single day. The new book is out at a couple of weeks titled in the blood, it is part of the series that James Reese series. I guess were we ought to do this back all the way up, but you might just give people the cliff notes on your military service. Yeah, so I came in before September 11th and went through budge and maybe it's my first deal team in the pre September 11th years and then we thought we were going to be zipping all over the world doing secret missions from day one once the cross that quarter deck. But that wasn't the case. We had to wait till September 11th and then we really started to do what we thought we were going to do coming in and that was off to the races for the next up until really today. But got out in 2016 and I was wondering to write thrillers because I grew up really, my formative years were the 80s. So if you wanted to do research into the field teams, you could go to the library and it would take you maybe 5, 6 hours to read everything ever written about deal with that in the early 80s. Of course you can't you couldn't stop. You spent your whole life reading about special operations online if you started today and tried to do that. But I knew I wanted to do that from an early age and then I started reading the things that my parents were reading in about 5th grade. So I started reading Tom Clancy and Nelson DeMille and David morrell and AJ quin and JC Pollock and Mark golden and Louisa Moore and all these guys who had protagonists with backgrounds that I wanted to have one day. So typically it was the Vietnam marine sniper. It was the Vietnam seal. It was the Vietnam army special forces guy. It was the Vietnam era CIA paramilitary officer. So I started reading these books and it was so magical for me. It's such an impact that I knew that that is what I would do after my time in the military. So that's what I did. Very cool. And yeah, it's like you move from the Carlos hathcock era to the in the sandbox era and now with James Reese, your protagonist, you've got a guy who has done all of that and then done the what happens afterwards. I mean, I actually know a couple of guys who do what happens afterwards and they work for the three letter agencies and they really do go do a lot of this stuff that people think is fiction, don't they? There's certainly a lot going on. There was during the Cold War, there is today. And it's really enough because of this program. Sniper school for me was in 2000. So we're talking about Vietnam and we were still in 2000, still really reliant on all the lessons that is not just in the sniper arena, but really all tactics techniques and procedures based off Vietnam thereof. And then after September 11th, we started morphing those tactics because obviously fighting in the 10,000 feet in Afghanistan is a little different than in the jungle and the new con delta. But same thing with sniper school, it was much more of an art when I went through in 2000 and then with all over the last two decades, a lot of changes on the science side. So blending that art and that science of sniping is something that I've used in this novel and I'm sure continue to use going forward. Well, I finished it yesterday. It's fabulous because you kind of got some of the old school of almost futuristic stuff going on in here, which is very cool. The cyber world and what's going on there. And that's all part of it these days. And we're always known that there are things going on in the protection of the country that we don't really know about. And honestly, I think a lot of us say, you know, there's stuff that I don't really need to know about. Is that a fair assumption? Yeah, I mean, I don't know if you need to know about it enough because right now, oh my goodness, I went down the rabbit hole, researching artificial intelligence, quantum computing, mass data storage, surveillance of U.S. citizens. And a lot of the books that have been written about that were already outdated. I mean, right now, technology is evolving so quickly that even if it's like I read Edward Snowden's book. So that's already a decade old, essentially, and things have moved forward quite a bit since then. And I got to have talked to people who had touch points in the national security arena, just like I did with the last book, the devil's hand where I go into the biowarfare bioweapons side of things. Well, everybody in those worlds, whether it's the bioweapon side of the house, or this data collection side of the house with quantum computing and artificial intelligence, they all leave out something. So they don't want to trust any lives..

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. When ragtime music first became popular in the early 1900s, people called it vulgar filthy and all kinds of horrible names that have since been pinned on other popular music. Ragtime was originally played in bars, saloons, and other places people looked down on. So they associated the music with the surroundings. But piano rags are pretty innocent. They follow almost the same form as marches. Usually, there's a little introduction. Then comes the first tune or theme. That theme repeats and then comes the second theme, which also repeats. If you call the first tune a and the second tune B so far we have a a, B, B two themes both repeated. But if you're expecting CC to follow, you're going to have to wait. Recognize that? It's the a theme back again. But this time it doesn't repeat, so after a a, B, B, a, we finally get to see. Then the C theme repeats, making a a, B, B, a, C, C what do you think is going to happen next? That's the fourth and final theme. It repeats two, which makes the form of a rag, AA, B, B, a, CC, DD, ragtime music is syncopated. That means the accents in the melody are shifted away from the strong beats in the baseline underneath, making a ragged sound. It may originally have been called ragged time. The word rag also means tease and ragtime music loves to tease you with unexpected rhythms and notes. Ragtime combined African rhythms brought through the United States by slaves with musical forms brought here from Europe, so it's truly African American. Tom turpin was known as the father of St. Louis ragtime. His Harlem rag was the first ragtime composition published in the United States by a black composer. A ragtime composer who actually performed in Harlem in New York City was James Reese, Europe. James Europe also brought ragtime to the continent of Europe. As a lieutenant in World War I, he directed a band for the first African American troops sent to France. Another famous ragtime composer grew up in Baltimore. Ubi Blake was the son of former slaves. His first rag was originally called sounds of Africa, then he changed the title to Charleston rag. Tom turpin may have been the father of St. Louis rag, but there were three composers known as the fathers of ragtime music, period. Number two was a student of Scott Joplin's called James Scott, who wrote the great Scott rag. You suppose he named the piece after himself, or after his teacher..

You're writing it for the entertainment purposes. And you don't wanna get bogged down in the in the nuances of that. Kind of stuff. the book is called black ice bradford's twentieth in the scott harvest series show. Simon schuster is out everywhere available. Right now the dhs. You recruited the d. h. s. red cell program where you're able to brainstorm these terrorist scenarios for the government. What is it how did that come about so right. After nine eleven happened. The federal government realized that we were vulnerable because of a lack of imagination on our part show as they stood up. Dhs a put together. What i think is the most forward thinking and aggressive federal program. At least that. I've ever heard of and that was the red cell unit in the idea was let's bring in creative thinkers from outside dc people who don't have a fixed military mindset or law enforcement mindset people that are kind of they think outside the box and let's see if these creative people can help us stay four to five steps ahead of the bad guys so they invited people like me Like michael bay. The director of the benghazi movie in the transformers movies and they said help us think about what potential attack scenarios might look like what targets at home and abroad could al qaeda other terrorist groups hit next and that's what we did for the government in as the son of a united states marine. It was an incredible honor for me to be asked to serve my country not by picking up a rifle but using gray matter between my ears. You actually your books. have exposed. Certain security vulnerabilities as well. That i mean pretty amazing that now you have the folks that are defending our country and taking care of our security and you're actually writing a thriller novel and they're seeing vulnerabilities in their own security at i mean how. How does it. What point in time do they just wake up and say you know what forgot this right. We're missing something. Well you know. It's it's funny so my book use of force. I actually set it up with his big action set piece at the burning man. Cecil in the desert nevada in burning man is going on every year at least pre cohen It had the density of london. There's that many people that tightly packed that. It's like the city of london. And so i opened up with this huge attack scenario at burning man and it actually triggered a security review by the federal government washington post. Wrote about it in all this kind of stuff. So you know. I've never had a top secret clearance or anything like that. You talk about our friend jacquard. Jack always has to have his books. Go through a review board. I don't have to but the government still does pay attention to what's written in books. If i throw something out there that they haven't thought of it least good to know that they're taking that stuff seriously and they're saying okay. Well this guy you know. He's hit it several times in. This is a potential scenario. We hadn't thought about that. So i'm always cool with that if something on one of the books in the government's paying attention that's good that means they're going to make us safer. So you mentioned jack. I've also had that conversation with our franklin emerson whose former navy seal When they write their bill have to submit it to to the dod and they have to review it. And you'll read these books You know in. The james reese series of jack cars. In all you'll have these paragraphs just xs and they've talked about how some of the most simple things have been You know eighty six so to speak And you're reading through the thing and it's like they they don't get the clearance and then they've talked about the frustration that it takes of the length of time to get your manuscript back from the dod you do. Do you have to submit what you're writing anyway for any type of review. No that was the deal with working for the red cell unit was I call it the las vegas of government programs chad because what happens in the red cell stays in the red cell. So i'm not allowed to use anything that i've developed for the government's candy my novels in fact i developed one potential attack scenario. It came true not in the united states but outside the us. And i contacted one of the team leaders at red cell. And i said hey listen. This was all over the news. Can i go on tv and discuss it in. Say how we totally wargame this within the red cell unit and then i was the one that brought it up and the person said no absolutely not. We do not talk about what we do in the red cell. There's only one thing that they've ever publicized to give. Americans an idea of what the rental unit does in that is. They wore gained. How terrorists might take advantage of an approaching hurricane how they might attack a shelter full of people or marshalling yard outside the path of the hurricane where we store buses and ambulances things like that we get him out of the path of the storm so that is the only scenario that's ever been revealed by the red cell unit.

"6, 30 K. How all right. Good morning. Happy Tuesday. I'm Ross. I'm laughing a little bit because I just saw an email from a friend of mine. It's it's in the list. I haven't opened the email yet. So it's just in the list of emails. Where the way I've got my email program set up. I can see the first few words of an email until I click to open the whole email and it starts off with as my hero, Sam Kennison. That's all I can see. And so I can't imagine what comes after that. I was I was actually I'll tell you the subject to the U. I won't tell you who I was emailing with. But the subject of the email was this ransomware thing that I haven't really talked about today. Talk about crime. It's not the kind of crime I'm I'm discussing right now. But this is a huge story. I haven't talked about it yet. Today there's this massive ransomware attack where They again. They went after a software provider. But they didn't go after the company that provides the software they went after that company's clients clients. Using some kind of infiltration into the software itself, and there are asking for $70 million to restore this data. I saw one analyst saying they think this thing got way out of control and that these These ransom where people bit off more than they can chew here anyway. We'll see. But what I said to my friend was, I realized that these ransomware people this looks like it's from a group called Reville Capital, Our Capital, E V. I l I said, we need to hire someone like Jack Car right? Or one of Jack Cars or Jack cars. Protagonist, James Reese in Jack Cars, various novels, Jack Car being a former Navy seal sniper and best selling author and his character, James Reese. A bad ass in his own right. Even maybe At least as much of a a bad asses. As Jack car himself. I said, I realized these ransom where people are in Russia and probably beyond our reach, but it sure would be some Excellent disincentive. For these people if some of the folks at Reville woke up dead one day Because, like these giant insurance companies that are having to pay out tens of millions of dollars on insurance claims for ransom. And a lot of these big companies are insured for this stuff. But remember now the cost of the insurance is going to be going up and up and up and up and up. So whatever you buy mean they hit a meat packing company right. They hit JBs. So the cost of your pork and beef and all that is going to go up because of the ransomware don't think that these things are victimless crimes. And don't think of the the idiotic leftist line. It doesn't matter because they have insurance. It's just just Typical of the less complete lack of understanding of the most basic sorts of economics. What we really need to do is to for some of those people. To wake up dead. It's that simple. It's that simple, You know, have their head on a pike somewhere. Photograph to go out over the entire Internet. Their head on a pike with like, uh, Like a Bitcoin. You know, they make these sort of physical versions of a Bitcoin. It's not really a Bitcoin, but you can get something you know, people will recognize it as something that's supposed to be the physical representation of a Bitcoin. You know, it's gold ish with something that you know to be with a dollar sign or love vertical line through it right. Like with those like in his eyes in the eyes of the person that you've You put put their head on a pike. This ransomware guy glue these fake Bitcoins Because there I say the Bitcoin because they collect their ransom often in Bitcoin glue these Bitcoin looking things to their eyes. And stick their head on a on a pike on offense and and, you know, put it. Put it. Maybe just outside of, uh Of the Kremlin or outside of one of Vladimir Putin's many dachas is vacation houses, right, I There's no way I know I'm off on a little tangential rant here, but there is no way that this stuff is being done without Vladimir Putin's permission. I think we've got KT. McFarland tomorrow I got to confirm it. But this is one of the things I want to ask her. I mean, Grandpa Joe just had a conversation with Vladimir Putin in which our president Joe Biden told Putin You know, these ransomware attacks are coming from Russia. So you better make sure that this that and the other kinds of businesses you know, hospitals and universities and whatever are not the victims of ransomware attacks. It's ridiculous. That's like saying go attack everything else or if you really want to mess with me. Go attack those places. What a moron! Grandpa Joe is anyway, like sure. So shortly after Grandpa has his conversation with Vladimir Putin, who remember is a former mid level mid level. He was never running the place mid level KGB spy. Lot of people think that Vladimir Putin used to run the KGB. He didn't He was a mid level guy in military terms. Think about someone with a rank of major, that kind of thing. Maybe less. But he's an old time. Cold War. KGB America hating, not just Russia loving but Soviet Union loving spy Who has said out loud That the collapse of the Soviet Union Was the greatest catastrophe of the 20th century. Not the civil war, not the Holocaust, not the famine. In China, not the millions of people that Stalin killed the breakup of the Soviet Union. This guy is in complete control. And I think it's very unlikely that these ransomware attacks are happening without his knowledge and without his getting a piece, although I guarantee it's through cutouts, so that he's got All kinds of deniability. Right. It goes through Sergei and then through Misha, and then through another guy named Sergei and then through Maxim, and then through another guy named Sergei and then into Vladimir Putin's A Liechtenstein bank account and then into his Swiss bank account. I mean, that's how I do it. I mean, that's how I would do it. Oh,.

"Got a guess. What did they talk. Rick till eight two hundred chicken wings at your mama's house last night now back to fat boy all right. Thanks for that. I think we'll come back to this. Show coast to coast around the world on american forces and speaking of american forces. It's our pleasure to welcome to the show. Navy seal jack car and author his of course new york times bestselling author and his fourth book. The devil's hand Is out now. He also has a podcast that we can talk about jack. Welcome to the show. And i've had several navy navy seals on my show over the last twenty years. And i always think about your training and how easy it is to ring the bell and bill child and the one thing that i always get. Is that the only way you were leaving. That training is if you're dead right. It's i mean obviously it's physical but how much of that is mental right. Let's you know going into that. That's the mindset you have to have Going into that. Kind of training eighty percents attrition typically And for me. What really helped was thinking about how how much people have sacrificed from the inception of this country up until today to give me the opportunity to be there on that beach in california getting yelled at and doing push ups doing sit ups running obstacle course students south san runs Paddling out through the surf zone. Doing those swims all that sort of thing. And you know what. I'm not storm in the beaches in normandy. I'm not going across the beach accurate. Gmo i'm not running across these. These open area devoid of cover and concealment and taking machine gun fire from an elevated position. So i really thought about those things. quite a bit was going through buds particularly in hell week and thought you know what i can do this election. Another push up. Here i can. I can make it to the next evolution. That's very cool so Just a question as sniper. Did you ever use those a big anti material like a a barrett. Fifty cal is that impractical for you know so we didn't have the barretts back then. I'm not sure if we do now or not information's little dated but in the field teams. We had a remington seven hundred fifty cowboys action on a every seven hundred put together by armourers that crane indiana and we did use those down range In particular in the battle for for an off iraq we would attend there to campaign. Eleven days of wish were just pitched street battles and We'll use the fifties a lot for actually taking out the Speakers that were attached around town that the enemy was using to coordinate their forces. So we re time. We saw one of those speakers We would blow things off the wall and Yeah they can make it a little harder. The enemy communicate. I'm sure you get asked this question a lot but how much it was american sniper real and how much of it was it. Hollywood like could you be on the cell phone with your wife while you were in a position like that. Well not on a cellphone home. That one was They almost lost me at that at that scene. Right they're calling home in the middle of the firefight so not that one but you know what. They did a great job in that movie. I think that is what ramadi in two thousand six look like it. Looks like the set design for that thing they did. A fantastic job looked like that. It's such a great job. And then they did a great job in that movie with what it feels like to come home and flip that switch From running operations and kicking in doors one night to less than twenty four hours later in some some ask sometimes seventeen hours or so for that That's been through spain germany on the way home. But then you're back. You know changing a diaper for the first time eating your child for the first time. They did a really good job showing that how difficult that transition is for a lot of people in hard is to flip that switch twin combat and home life. There's the one scene in the movie just wondering how close it was where he gets off the roof and he just picks up an four and starts banging indoors. So how real is that that you would just switch to an assault rifle definitely if you have a bolt action rifle on you also going to have your four or something like that. And a lot of cases we used for for listening to the mark levin weapons system The army called the are twenty five. So it's a seventy two on a loading weapon system that allows you to clear room and then also set up any never watched -sition and it's very versatile. So um yeah depending on where you are particularly in these urban environments that became Our workhorse but you're just going out there with a bolt action rifle. You probably when. I grab something else as well. No doubt so speaking of hollywood You've got something going on with with chris pratt and amazon is that right. That's right yeah chris. Pratt is starring as my protagonist navy seal sniper james reese and his crushing it so for people that have just seen him in Guardians of the galaxy avengers. Drastic world is being. he's darkies viscerally primal. he's violent And people are going to be surprised but he's absolutely crushing it. They're building it right now. I just got back from last week. And they have three hundred fifty people working on this thing out there and it was like a reunion feels that i work within the field teams and then down range with your acting in it or playing seals and editing stunt coordination or technical advising so it was like a huge reunion. It was it was fantastic to blast. How much is it. My my dad. I've mentioned this a lot. But my dad was a navy officer. And i remember when i was in high school. We had the thing going on in grenada and and he. It was killing him that he wasn't there. And i'm like that you're fifty and you've been retired for fifteen years. Do you kind of get that inch. If you see. Our fellow servicemen and women. In harm's way you still feel like i want to go. You know it was good. Twenty year run for me and the only thing that really made me wanna get back in. The fight is when i saw thirteen hours for whatever reason I think it's because i was attached to the cia for a little bit there in baghdad in two thousand six But that one really made me in that movie focused on some stuff obviously different countries but that was made me for half a second want to get back into it. But then i took a breath and realized hey my family. My family needs me and it's time to move on and turn the page start a new chapter and build on the foundation. That was started well before the seal teams. Because i knew i wanted to do that. From from h seven and h. I started reading what my parents were reading and I wanted to write thrillers. One day so So i don't really have that fence. But interestingly enough after september eleventh everybody he wasn't right away in afghanistan thought they were gonna miss it and And come got out to contracts with. I thought that might get into the fight faster But now here. We are twenty years later and Missing it was Was not really the issue. Yeah you got enough sashes on your sleeve right. It was a good run. Get run well yes In our country is in debt. So let's talk about the devil's hand you mentioned James risher your main protagonists What isn't store in this book. That's right so each book has a different theme. That i won. The terminal. Analyst is really a book about revenge without constraints The second one the journey of redemption the third one is called savage sun and that explores the dark side of man dynamic hundred hundred and his fourth one devils hand. I really wanted to explore something. I thought about a lot while i was in uniform. Seal and what i think about today as an author and a citizen which is what the enemy learned by watching us on the field of battle for the last twenty years at war with iran china russia north korea super powered individual a terrorist organization. What would i have learned by. Essentially watching the united states play poker seeing our cards. See how we play those cards. Take those lessons and apply them to future battle plan. So that forms. The basis for the devil's hand and i didn't realize when i outlined the whole book in august twenty nine thousand nine just how pivotal a year twenty twenty. Was he going to be for the country and of course the enemy is looking at all these things in your response to go. But they're looking at a summer of civil unrest that continues today. They look very contentious political season election cycle. And they're taking lessons from all of those things they're adapting and they're applying those lessons future battle-plan so the book became much more timely. Then i thought it was going to be when i outlined it.

"You know, you're you see me still to be a go getter, and this is the way to do it. I mean, you know, you gotta stay. You know you're from shelters. Sean is not the only two on one operator to know someone who became homeless. Nearly all the operators who work for Alameda County to 11 are women of color and homelessness is disproportionately affecting black and brown people in the Bay Area. One operator. And then Gwen told me she'd been homeless yourself for about five years. Not that long ago, A T end of the call Rihanna transfers your cousin to the place where she can get on the list for help with housing. Okay. I love you. I love you, too. All right? Looking back on that call. Shauna recognizes that some of her hesitancy around telling your cousin it was her had to do with her own doubts around what she was ready to offer. I didn't really want to fully At that point. Extend my hand as a place to stay because I didn't feel like I was in the position to do that. I just didn't want to be faced with that, because in my heart I would have had the heart to be like No, you can't come here. Shot had been in this situation before. Not with this cousin but with another family member, and she knew once you invite someone in, you have to be willing to let them stay until they find another situation. After that, two on one call with her Shauna. It ended up being about six months before her cousin was able to get herself back into her own place. When these operators actually do have something tangible to offer their collars, they jump at the chance. At the end of one of her work days. Rihanna answers the phone for a collar who needs a shelter bed tonight? Luckily, she's just gotten word that five beds have opened up in a shelter in Oakland, so she has something to offer on Lee.

Let me let me place you on a quick hold to see what I could do about transportation. OK, let me place 200 operators don't really have a budget to help colors with transportation. But there is this very small fund or Shauna tells me for lift rights, although she doesn't think this situation meets the criteria to use the funding, Um You don't have a way to even take the bus home Mysteries. No, I really could actually help trying to help me And I appreciate you so much. Chris. China puts Mr Reese back on hold and opens the app for lift on her computer. Brow is furrowed.

I'm not an attempt to say your last name please. Forgive me says hello question. is the reluctance. Because of higher ups are white supremacists or is the or is the system never caught up with the modern world or that did they never want to about. I mean i think there there are very few actual white supremacists who will go to klu klux klan meeting or some other like minded groups meetings But there are certainly more people who are just racist. A ran a fan. Dan you have a broader category. Where you have these right militant roofs that have adopted a tactic of Banning friendship with law enforcement wearing blue lives matter patch and and going to the loo lives matter rallies You know again when you look at the history of these groups. And even the recent history. They killed police officer so that is is simply public. Relations work at these groups are doing. But i'm working labor staying too many law enforcement officers in so many law enforcement agencies all aim for that and not being as aggressive against these groups as they are against their opponents which is serious problem that unfortunately is making a much more dangerous but i think a lot of it is structural racism that in all versions in the united states in because long were smith in the entire criminal. Justice system is sort of intimidates speier. In how the government interacts slip outlet. That's where we see it more. Were obviously right. I mean..
