Jesse Watters: Why Are We Feeding Illegals Before Americans?

"Jesse watters had his own unique take on this reprehensible situation yesterday on Fox News channel. Why are we feeding illegal babies ahead of American babies? Why can illegals get baby formula from border agents, but we can't get it at Walgreens? Does any of this make sense? None of this is rocket science. For instance, we have oil in Alaska. Gas. Just broke a record. It's almost what? Four 50 a gallon? What is Joe Biden do today? Shuts down a massive oil lease in the state of Alaska. Is anybody in The White House thinking? Inflation is at a record high. So how about we stop spending and stop printing? Right? It's the same thing with defund the police. We want to treat everybody on the street with respect, but we want to give the police the tools to fight crime. Everybody agrees with that. Judge jeanine said the other day, mayor Adams and Manhattan, taken thousands of guns off the street, but the crime is going up. Why? Because we're not taking the criminals off the street.

"Want you to hear a little bit of the monologue and the discussion yesterday from one of TV's from one of cable TV's most highest rated shows the 5 on Fox News. This is judge jeanine pirro and Jesse watters. But right now, the American public 70% is so over it. They're not listening to the health experts anymore. Well, because we were lied to. He said it was 15 days and it ended up being like 15 months. Because remember, a lot of the Democrat governors stayed locked down and that all the scaredy cats continued to stay locked out. Here's what's Fauci's plan. Shut down the entire U.S. economy. He's never been done before and told everybody to quarantine, including healthy people. And then he didn't do anything for early treatment at all. And then he says, stay inside with a mask on. And if you catch COVID, wait until you can't breathe very well. Then get yourself to a hospital and strap yourself to a ventilator. Yeah, that was. Oh, and then wait a couple years for a vaccine, which I get a cut from. That is

And there's also what happens when you spend billions of dollars on things like environmental justice and true equity. And Joe Biden is what you get when you order your president, vote by mail. All of this can be explained in the first few hours. His administration when he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline, he is prioritizing climate change and he's prioritizing that is his biggest national security threat. That's why we're seeing gas prices go through the roof. This is the California model nationalize.

"Back folks. The book is thinking orthodox folks. Welcome back we're talking to the author of thinking orthodox understanding and acquiring the orthodox christian mind Jeannie constantinou jeannie. You talk about frowny ma in the book to the way i see it if this is a criticism of every redenomination we act in this secular world. The united states in particular like being a christian some mental to some ideas It's a thing. I do once a week or something and then i live my life but i'm supposed to be all in twenty four seven. I'm supposed have my mind renewed. It's supposed to be a completely different order of life. That to me is what gets too so talk about it. That's right because the word fronnie mike read. This is an ancient greek word. Also in the new testament in many places saint. Paul us at even in jesus instructed. Peter told him he didn't have the right mindset so fraud means mindset mentality attitude worldview. There's no one word that encapsulates it but definitely when they when the apostles went out to preach and they established communities. They didn't say here's a book to read. Here's some pamphlets. Just know the bible. They taught not only about who jesus was and the basics of the phase but they also taught them a whole way of life and the apostles received that from the lord they were with the lord for three years watching him seeing how he behaved and he taught many things. So this is what they taught these communities when they establish the churches so being a christian isn't just about intellectually assenting to certain concepts but actually an entire way of life and this was what was received by the first christians. that's why they stood out in the culture. And that's what we need to do as christians because our culture is rapidly becoming more and more like for century rome so the christians received an entire worldview way of life and attitude stands not just intellectual concepts and this is definitely more part of the western christian tradition because of the developments that i spoke about earlier in western europe in which theology is a matter of mental constructs. So that's never been part of the orthodox tradition. Well this of course comes out of the enlightenment. And you're right. It's constantly reacting to something and i've just seen this in spades where you come up with a good idea. You say we're not doing this enough. And then you do it. So much to the exclusion of everything else. But what you just said. I come at it too exactly the same place but sort of from a different route. I mean i think that. Because i had the privilege of writing about some heroes of the faith whether dietrich von hoffer or a number of people you start realizing that to be a christian means to reorder your whole life. It's not some mental assent so if somebody says what do you believe you say well. We'll go to the website of my church. See a statement of faith. Who cares the statement of faith on the website of your church is not fooling the devil. Not fooling god. It's not fooling your friends or enemies. How do you live. That is how people can know what you actually believe what you don't merely assent to but then don't live it out because if you don't live out clearly you don't really believe it. So it's the sort of as you were saying very hyper rational. Listrik view of belief whereas believe has more to do with trust who i am versus what i claim to believe intellectually. That's right because if you look at how the early christians live. This is what. I'm always going back to the early church because as a run ask questions wait believe where the continuation of the ancient apostolic church and so when look at how they lived. They didn't win people over by giving them clever arguments about jesus because there's nothing logical about the cross. There's nothing logical about worshiping crucified. God christians were considered insane by the romans. So how did they win over. How did this little tiny religion become the official religion of the roman empire. Will they did it because of the way they lived. And this is what we're lacking is christian. But this is a great place to just pause. We're gonna keep you for the next hour folks plenty more ahead. This is just preamble. We'll be right. Back with your arthur thinking orthodox..

"I am talking to a fellow. Greek american that's all you need to know but actually no. Her name is Eugeniusz guerrillas constantinou genie constantino. Who's written a really important book. Thinking orthodox understanding acquiring the orthodox christian mind. You're about to go. I think jeannie into why you wrote the book and this This is important and it crosses denominational lines what you get into in the book So i'm excited about the so. Yeah tell my audience. Y y you wrote the book. I wrote the book to help. Christians understand each other basically because as a minority form of christianity. Here in this country. Most people don't really even though the we exists. Let alone understand who we are. So protestants encounter us. And they put us in the camp with the catholics and the orthodox church is nothing like the catholic church and also Catholics and protestants are in many ways more similar to each other than they are to us. We think we theologies very differently than catholics. And protestants western christianity basically because western christianity developed during the middle ages in western europe. The church was eastern before it was western. The church was greek. Before it was latin. And when the church moved into western europe and began to develop there under the umbrella of the papacy of course it developed at became something very different than what the early church was like and for that reason people assume that we have a certain way of thinking or understanding or believing. That is actually not true. It's more characteristic of western christianity. Well now it's hard for me to believe. I always try to try to think about this. How the church developed. And i think to myself okay. Let's say i. If i went to the church at the time of polycarp or iryna or whatever what would it have been like then i imagine it would have been more like a peter. Hanging out with the the or the disciples in the early years. But you know before the fall of jerusalem then it would be like a catholic service or like an eastern orthodox service in other words at some point the liturgy of both traditions developed. And but i don't have any sense of of win that was. This is a very difficult sage of down. And i'm not a specialist in liturgical. But i can tell you that. There are many indications in the new testament that the first christians were liturgical. Saint paul talks about it in. I corinthians talks about the meetings and also in the book of acts says that they gathered together to give. Thanks the word is eucharist. So the gathering together and the very fact that there were presbyterians and deacons at episkopi bishops shows that there was a kind of hierarchy there was a structure. There was a regular gathering. And it's more than just getting together to sort of hang out and talk about jesus there had to be some structure. We also see this in the earliest written document. Outside of the new testament called the dedicate the that he don't oppa a stall on the teaching of the twelve apostles which goes back the first century which has specific prayers practices like fasting wednesdays in friday. Let's let's talk about this because this is really important that the is that like ninety five. Ad roughly as early as fifty and peop-. The scholars don't agree as early as fifty. Have maybe one hundred one fifty so because it's talks about prophets and apostles who are traveling and how to distinguish a trope puzzle from a false apostles. So it had to have been during the lifetime of apostle very early is the point. It's extremely early part of the canon. But it's taken deeply seriously in the orthodox church. How what significance does the roman catholic church accord. the did. How dedicate did a sending k. That he is not that has taken seriously the orthodox church. I'm just pointing out to you that this is another witness historical document that bears witness to the fact that christian gatherings were liturgical. We see that the book of revelation to and we have to remember that when the church was born it came out of judaism and there is a structure. There's illiterate litter liturgy in the synagogue services. There's a structure. There's their prayers. There's a you know procedure this follow. There's somebody who presides and they also were familiar with the temple so the idea that there was no structure in you just winged it or we know there were no memorize prayers and there was nobody really in charge. I think that that's really an incorrect assessment of what the early church was like. It's worn out by the epistles of paul. Especially in first corinthians. I would say well i mean we. I think we would agree. That you know when people get over gala -tarian And they turned it into a quaker meeting or a shaker meeting. Or whatever it is. That's that's kind of you know it gets a little ridiculous. I mean in every church assemblies of god or baptist or wherever you go there's a structure. There's an order. The only question of course is in the details. And i think that i wanna talk to you about the central idea of your book. Which is is that the word froma yes riley my then so. He built a data suit. Gut saffron gots ronnie mile me for naza. No it's so beautiful. Because as soon as i heard that word i thought of that the the famous greek you know rebuke got ma means it just means like hey shape up but it means literally sit kind of in the right way for only mma how do you how do you say it's like prudently or wisely or find mindful. Remember who you are and where you are behavior. It's a way of saying behaviors off. But i will say like god except rani. My literally means sit. Mindfully another words not like an buddhist sense but in terms of knowing where you are behave yourself. That's it's a it's a great. It's a great team. So the greeks say that. But the word phony my obviously. I'd never thought of it until literally yesterday when i was watching something you've done online and it was really with a priest. I can't remember who it was the priests that you were talking to you anyway. Chris metropolis maybe if it was about the boat yeah. I'm not sure but in any event you discussed this idea of throw nima and how it's at the center of what it means to be a christian. I mean we keep talking about orthodox. I mean it's either christian or it's nothing this is christian and we need to the reason i want to have you on part of the reason i wanted to have you on the program is because i think different nominations can learn from each other and the idea that anybody has all the truth. You wanna say. Hey whoever has truth. From jesus. I want it. That's the only truth and so when we come back we're going to explore this idea. We've got plenty of time. Thank the lord. We'll be right.

Eric and Dr. Jeannie Constantinou Discuss Drifting in Religion

"I'm talking to you genius. Guerrillas constantinou also known as jeannie constantino the author of a an exciting book called thinking orthodox understanding and acquiring the orthodox christian. Mind so jeannie before we get into the deeper stuff. There's so much here You were just saying something. That i've i've talked about this endlessly over the years i as i think i shared with you. I'm you know i was raised. In the greek orthodox church and i sort of drifted away never consciously. I don't think people drift consciously but i drifted unconsciously into a kind of agnostic. Whatever ism i coined that term alvin. Write that down. Because we're gonna know but it's kind of funny that. I think that that happens to a lot of people who grew up. In the greek orthodox church is just kind of a cultural thing and then you kind of drift off and mary. Whomever and part of what's fascinating to me. Is that when you have what. I call any kind of ethnic christianity. The problem is that you can very easily focus on the ethnic part. So this is where the greeks hang out. We hang out in the church and as a result of that you're not thinking evangelist thinking about the fact that most people in this community or outside the greek church are secular. They're not so you can sort of lose something. I think that's part of the tragedy of what i think of his ethnic orthodox christianity in america's you forget that you're sending these kids like me into a deeply secular devotedly secular world and you kind of assumed that you know everybody in the audio is greek. But of course you're no longer in the. Aw that's right the word what. Y'all means village a just for your audie heads. That's right well. The fact is you're talking about your. Your experience is like many people but not just in the orthodox church. The same thing could be could be set did happen to lutherans. When they were earlier in the century when there were young german lutheran parishes versus swedish lutheran parishes or catholic cherishes. That were italian or polish. Or something like this. So we're definitely in that transition stage where we're having to really remind people that this is not about being greek and you don't have to be great or russia to be an orthodox christian orthodoxy is all over.

I was so excited when i when i saw this. It's title thinking orthodox understanding and acquiring the orthodox christian mind so you are an academic. Let's start there. Yes i am. I'm a professor. And i've been professor for many years professor of new testament and early christianity new testament. Which as we have said was written in greek obviously and early christianity. I wanna get your background Jeannie because you're an academic. You're you're a christian. You you take it all very seriously. There are a lot of people in the world of the academy. Who are you know their professors in new testament studies. And this and that. But you wouldn't describe them as actual christians. They're just academically focused on this. But you really are serious about your faith and you're taking it. You're you're theologian. Yes you're right about that. It's very surprising. How many scholars of new testament really don't believe what's even in the new testament. And i'm shocked at this because i think where else would you have and not just new testament studies but also theology so many people don't accept basic christian doctrines that you and i hold. Dear are absolutely essential such as the virgin birth the resurrection of christ and yet. They're teaching theology even in so called religious institution of. That's the key. I don't i don't expect any different from secular institutions Because they you know they think. Hey it's like. I'm teaching the epic of gilgamesh.

Yeah i think that one kind of encapsulates. The you know the the fight. That's going on right now. Eric so i think that is the one that be interesting for your audience to hear about. Well let's let t. Tell the story for people who aren't familiar with it. But i just want to say again folks alliance offending freedom. They it says it right there right there defending freedom particularly religious freedom. It is really important. They're fighting for us W- actually if you go to our website metaxas talk dot com. There's a banner. I hope you'll donate to them because they need our help. And they're fighting for all of us. If you get in a situation like this they're the ones you can call. So what so. What's happening right now. There's a teacher who's been suspended in virginia in the richmond area. Yeah so You know ten across crossman. A employees elementary school p. e. teacher in loudon county for more than eight years and back in may he went to a public school board meeting Because loudon county was considering adopting a transgender policy which would force all teachers To refer to any student a according to any Pro now that student demands. And tanner was concerned about this. He thinks than that speaking untruths to students harmful and he spoke out at this meeting Less than two days later the school suspended him. Assembly for speaking has views on this proposed policy. We file a lawsuit loudon county judge granted. Injunction reinstating tanner and then that went to the virginia supreme court and they affirmed the reinstatement. So tanner went back to school. Unfortunately tanner loudon. County didn't heed the warnings that many teachers and parents and community members were giving to the board about this policy and they enacted the policy in august and so several weeks ago. We added to new teachers. Monica gayle and kimberly right to the lawsuit to challenge the policy. Because right now loudon. County has a policy which will allow any student at any age kindergarten on up to high school to demand that they be referred to as any pronoun that they want without parental permission without any sort of diagnosis from a medical professional dice. And i have to just hit pause for a second. i just want to tell my audience. So to make sure they're tracking ladies and gentlemen. You understand this is insanity like i want to be really clear this insanity. This is like stuff that happened. During the french revolution stuff that happened during the the the soviet bolshevik revolution where people say things that are crazy and they force everyone to go along. I cannot believe this has come to america. I cannot believe children are being subjected. This is kind of cruel actually two kids to give them the option to ask a kid who's never thought of in his life. Hey what's your pronoun. This is madness and if we do not fight back if adf weren't there folks you understand. This is these are your schools. These are your kids these. Are your teachers your neighbors i. I rarely get this exercised about something but this is madness. You know it's madness. I know it's madness and we have to speak out against it. So i say that because i just feel like i have to parenthetically underscore what we're all thinking. I mean here we are. You guys are fighting a legal battle over something that most of us know. It is preposterous. So i just. I'm in awe tyson of of your your ability to do this. Eighty s ability to do this. I'm glad you do it. But i almost can't believe that this is happening in america today. Sounds like an end times novel. It is scary Eric because you know these teachers a monica gal. She's taught history for twenty some years at loudon county. She teaches every student's she loves every student. She's able to accommodate every student and they've been comma dated She's accommodated transgender students. In the past but to force the every teacher every staff member every student To us eight to say that something that they think is untrue. is is is unconstitutional. And it's wrong and and it is promoting something that is going to be harmful to students. Well there's there's no question about it this is well look. Let me make my pitch folks. Go to metaxas. Talk dot com. You'll see the banner for eighty f- It's up today monday. And please give what you can because this is true. Madness has been unleashed america. This is a cruel thing to me. That's being done to parents being done to kids being done to teachers this madness. Where's this coming from. Is this a popular thing. No this has been pushed by people that look. I assume they're sincere. But it's no less crazy. I mean this is when somebody says. I'd like to identify as a cat. Like to identify as as a ford mustang. I mean at what point do we say this is madness. Nobody seems to have the guts so we have to take it to court and if it weren't for atf. We would all just be lying down and accepting it. So i hope you'll help. Eighty go to our website. Metaxas talk dot com. So wh where is this right now. Tyson i'm again in awe that we have to fight this battle. Legally in our courts. Well thankfully the court initially entered the the injunction to reinstate tanner's so tanner's back in school along with monica and kim but we are asking the court to enter an order stopping loudon county from enforcing a policy which would which would force teachers and students to say things that they think are untrue. And that are going to be harmful student. So we're waiting on a hearing date for the court to hear our injunction request Hopefully the court agrees with us that you know what we teach in In schools can be life altering for children and we owe it to them to teach consistent with science and reality and that they will protect the rights of of teachers and students and parents because this policy allows the school to transition their their these students without parental permission students as young as kindergarten. And and as you said that's scary and it's wrong and it's dangerous to the to our students it it's it's madness and if we don't fight it folks shame on us. I mean this whatever you need to do some people can just write a check to eighty f- by all means write a check to eighty f- please but there are other ways that we can fight. We need to get in this battle. This is madness. Statistically it's kind of like the election you start looking at things you say. This doesn't seem right. It seems like you know point. Oh one percent of the population has real transgender dis- four issues. But every kid is being asked. What are your pronouns. What's your gender and we're getting you know multiplied percentages. We're getting ten percent of kids kind of wondering what this is being pushed. This is not normal on any level this is somehow being pushed. I would say for other reasons in any event. Whatever it is folks. We've got to fight. it's not right And if it weren't for eighty f- as i say i i don't know where we would be. What what other cases do you have coming up. We've just got a few seconds left but what other stuff is on the horizon radio. Yeah we've got another teacher who was actually fired. Two years ago in williamsburg virginia and that case is going to the virginia supreme court. Right now on this very same issue so this is not an isolated incident it has an incident. That's sweeping across the country and what your listeners can do is speak the truth. Do not be cowed. Speak the truth because people are harmed when children are told lives.

We're really you need five million so ask for what you need. You have not because you ask not right you have to first of all put it out there and then maybe they don't give you five. Maybe four maybe they give you ten. You don't know what level they're willing to come in but if you don't ask for it you definitely ain't gonna get it. That's for sure. I gonna receive that too because i've been in this space do but just in life. That's something that lately unipolar go. Let's get it but then there have been a couple of days run like old so i thank you for sharing that. Because i'm about chris receiving that as you say go get yours. Go get it. The i would love it. If you could highlight maybe some of the investors that you you've worked with like which ones are. Do you think gar are very open to having these conversations with these first time founders rebounders you are are just in that first the first stages of their business in their sort of learning how to raise money and they're still figuring things out like to highlight some of those investors who do a really great job of working with new founders right so obviously brian candice bracket are all great. Shot onto light ship like they. Brian has given me his time. And not even from like avi standpoint just like as a human standpoint and so i feel like that's very important when you're dealing especially with underrepresented boundaries who don't feel heard like to give your time that's important Alley rosenbaum from capitol is phenomenal. She and her partner. Steve are Actually have a call with them tomorrow. But allie gave me her time as well and she's very much so coin like the non obvious founder identity our strategy because she believes that she's not obvious founder herself and then i have a call tomorrow with lemarie roswell brought something to hurt from founders fund. I brought something to her attention in terms of lack of diversity and just trying to get more of an understanding of like how they go about managing their portfolio. How do they pick deals. And so she has given her time tomorrow. So i would say those are some of the ones that i've been talking to recently and i mean the list is growing. Oh my gosh. Last will to or than i have to shot out. Because these peo- zack. Silverman is an l. p. in rare-breed. Vc revenge which is led by. Mac and mac is phenomenal. Mac is like he's very down to earth and he's very much so open to having those conversations and he was telling me about his finding his north star. And i just saw the prototype on a we dryer we've hairdryer which is like revolutionizing the game for women of color or even white women to who get their extensions are but i say those are some of the season some of the investors who have just been really down to earth and who have given me their time Not just from the founders perspective but also just from general relationship building that's awesome. That's awesome always lived here especially inattentive portfolio fund like light ship. Shout there bryan. Again as are amazing human beings amazing things and then obviously mac. Doing incredible things at rare-breed is often the here. So so with this new platform in the work that you're doing as you start to build a raise your fund in have you thought about any ties back to the island of jamaica in working on some type of Immigrant programming that will help to cultivate founders from the island and get their ideas off. Or maybe Bahamas barbados or you know We're at wherever are. Have you thought about that. Yeah percent one hundred percent. I thought of it. And that's where the vision comes into play about being like that goto space for founders for underrepresented founders because the issue that this fade like the issue of lack of access to capital isn't just native to the us resulted to south america. It's native to africa. Which is an emerging market right. Now the goal is to again disseminate information in a voice that is familiar authentic to the learner and give the context for the unfamiliar market. That they're about to encroach upon and so that's translatable with All languages amounts all cultures in. That's essentially why. I love this because it's like it's not just a us base thing like this has an opportunity to really reach powders on a global scale if executed effectively. So that's why. I'm kind of like taking the time to have the conversations before just going balls to the wall because i do understand that it could have a global impact so yes yes yes yes and doing across all languages dialects like all exciting. Nice now you told us what keeps you up at night. Tell us what gives you rests with gives you pause and we would impassioned you but gives me rest is knowing that are learn and i just learned this too if i don't take care of myself and i can't take care of the people that i'm serving and that's a hard lesson to learn like even i just moved into my new apartment on tuesday and i was getting stressed because like i have to work out do these emails like take a second like i manifested. Be in here in brickell latte. Like two years ago. I wrote it down. I was like by november. Twenty twenty one. I'm going to be my new apartment. And i'm here it really did. But that's what gives me the motivation to keep going his that like if i can literally set my mind to something and then do it in less than a year and a half imagine what i could do with three years five years and what really impassioned me in. What's my why it's twofold one. It's to be able to take care of the people who have invested in me like my mom. My dad my sister. My cousin might uncles. they have invested not only financially but emotionally spiritually. And to me. And i wanna take care of them. That they're like they're my why i wanted to have my dad able to sail around the world. He's.

"It's been a crazy week We had the Olympic hammer thrower there who's throwing down her own hammer on the play again and on the national anthem. We've also got the left going loony tunes over the new Delta variant and wondering whether or not they're going to try to shut us down again. And politics in Washington is staying just about the same, which means they're just they're just playing games and I don't know that any of us are benefiting from any of it. But we're going to get to all those topics and break it all down for you here on the judge Jeanine Pirro Tunnel to Towers Foundation Sunday morning show plus later on in the show. I'm going to gavel out with my closing arguments. I'll also revealed the new question of the week that you don't want to miss. I always love your participation in our weekly polls on the topics that matter to justice here in America, it's all coming up in just a few moments, but first my opening statement Now. She is living the American dream, and she doesn't have a clue. It's Independence Day, but sadly in the United States, it's far too common to see people who simply don't respect our national anthem and our flag. So this week, another woke activist athlete turned her back on the American flag and get this is outraged that the national anthem is playing as she is recognized for hammer throwing at the Olympic trials in Oregon. Toward the end of the song. She covers her head with a black T shirt that has the words on it, Quote activist athlete. Her competitors. First place winner Diana Price, and second place winner Brooke Anderson stood tall face the flag put their hands over their hearts during the national anthem. Now in the upside down world that we live in. If you criticized this woman for turning her back on the American flag, you're the racist or your UN American for not supporting her free speech. Symbolic rejection of the very Ends to me can be resolved with a simple decision. If you hate the national anthem If you disrespect the flag, then don't participate in the Olympic trials that actually segregate people based on the country that they represent. So if you believe that the flag and the national anthem are disrespectful to black Americans, then maybe you don't participate in the games where you're brought in. Through the auspices and under the umbrella of the United States of America, the very country whose national anthem and flag you hate. But my all time favorite and I always go back to her is Joy Behar. She insists that this activist athlete is fulfilling her patriotic duty by protesting. Well, you know, protest is the very definition of patriotism. It basically is the basis of the country. They were protesting the at the tea Party. And and in the sixties, the people protested the Vietnam War, which brought it to an end. And now African Americans are protesting. You know the fact that people do not want to face the racist past here. She's basically doing her patriotic duty by saying, I am making a point here. That's all she's doing. You're not hurting anybody. Joy. She's not hurting anybody. Are you kidding? She's hurting every man and woman whose blood was spilled for that flag. Including patriotic black men and women who chose to enlist on behalf of the United States and chose to fight for what you find so repulsive. She is hurting every parent who lost a child. She is hurting every spouse who lost a loved one. Every child growing up without a father. And every veteran who can't stand because he lost his legs but who still dreams of what it was like when he had legs what it was like when he didn't need to ask his kids to pick him up when he falls. No joy. You're wrong again. She is hurting people. She is hurting the very soul of a nation that grieves every day for lost, injured and maimed loved ones. She is hurting America on the international stage. Where other countries laugh at the disrespect and the downright hatred that people like her have for our national anthem and our flag, allowing those Foreigners to laugh and ridicule us when they are so much worse. But most of all, she is teaching young Children for whom she is a role model. That it is OK to hate America and it is okay to insult her on the world stage. You are at the Olympic trials representing the United States of America. So I have an idea. How about you respect the country you represent or just don't represent it. Because we both know that that was your ticket in without that ticket. You need another country to sponsor you. Get it. And if you move to the international Olympic Games, it is globally unacceptable for you to protest in any way. You say it bothers you that you have to wear the bold letters USA on your chest? Well, you are a self centered Clueless Third place winner who actually says that folks knew you didn't like the national anthem, but they played it anyway. Are you really that self centered to think it's all about you? Let's say you want to support reform. Let's say you want to stand up against social injustice. What have you done? Other than draw attention to yourself. You tell me the last time Olympic winner you sat on a jury. You tell me the last time you joined a school board or fought for laws that help people you supposedly want to help. When was the last time you voted? The last time you wrote a letter to your legislator, your congressional representative, your local mayor. When was the last time you helped women at a domestic violence shelter? When was the last time you tried to help people at a food kitchen? If you want to convince America that you're embarrassing us is really all about your free speech, Social justice and the Constitution that maybe do something positive for the country that is giving you fame and fortune. America has been incredibly good to you. From the time that you displayed talent in sports and America allowed you to shine and become financially prosperous. You because of where you are can impact social justice instead of disrespecting the United States of America, the nation, the country that allowed you to be a hero to young girls who don't know any better will take their lead from you. Because they don't know any better. So shame on you and shame on the way you are trashing the United States of America. And now we find out that there's an old photos showing Olympic hammer thrower beaming while holding the American flag has gone viral in the wake of her, shunning the Stars and Stripes this past week during the national anthem. It was posted in 2015, and it shows her exuding joy as she holds up the flag after she achieved her dream of representing the country at the 2016 Rio Olympics. So all of a sudden she reacts to this inconsistency. And she says at this point, you all are obsessed with me. No. We're not obsessed with you. And she doubles down by insisting that the national anthem is disrespectful to black Americans, she says. If you know your history, you know the full song of the national anthem. And it's disrespectful and it doesn't speak to black Americans. Got to tell you folks, this old photo that's now gone Viral. Uh, pretty much slams her for her parents shift in attitude. Not all an act, I guess not. She was definitely protesting to get attention for herself. And maybe some of those woke Nike sponsorships, according to Donald Trump Jr 100% legit and not all cottage industry victimization schemes that we see so much these days. And that's why opening statement here on the judge Jeanine Pirro, Tunnel to towers Sunday morning show up and Up next on the tunnel to Towers Foundation Sunday morning show..

Bolivia's Former Interim President Jeanine Áñez Arrested for Sedition

"Our ultra Bolivia now where there seems to be a settling of political scores. The country's former interim president, Janine and yes, has been arrested on sedition charges. They're linked to her alleged involvement in a reported coo of 2019 against the former president Evo Morales. His ally, Louise outside is now in power, and Mr Morales is demanding punishment. The alleged coup plotters, Janina Anya says she's the victim of political persecution will have to try to find out more about what's happening and go to the capital. A pause. Enjoying Monica Makiko Monica. Just tell us first about the arrests, not just of Janine. Yes, but others as well. Yes. Lisa, In fact that there are two former minister off Giannini, Anya's government that has also being detained. There are other arrest orders that are taking place right now. We don't know how many there will be arrested because this is not just one case. There are many cases and basically they're being arrest because because because they said that they have conspired against the Constitution. The charges are terrorism and sedition. This is said to have taken place in 2000 and 19. Why are the arrests happening now? We basically don't know what the government have decided to do this. This is the this is in fact, something that happened in 2019 and then beat remind you, Lise. That doing the time that Giannini Anya's came into power, she has bean she had the back up off the constitutional Tribunal, as well as from the U U and as well as the Away s so she had basically all the support in order to, uh, to assume as president of Bolivia legally, So this is this is something very strange that it's happening in the country, and we basically don't know why one off the keys could be the fact that that the movement to a socialism have lost all the major cities. And some of the major states in the country on the elections that we have last Sunday. This election's once where to elect governors and also mayors and Mrs municipalities. And basically the government. The movement to a socialism have lost all the major cities in the country. So probably this is one of the reasons why this is happening. In fact, the second turn the second round off this elections That has to be done that has to take place on April 21st. It's right now in danger, because because of this, and also is there any coincidence that ever, Morales has just arrived in Bolivia from when a Zara's where he'd been Living in exile. Well, yes, probably. That's part of the reasons we just don't know yet. Nothing is very clear because the accusation doesn't have really, uh, legal

"Maybe you can tell the audience just a little bit about comcast. So they can understand what you are as a is a media business I operate. Yes and so we say that we said at the intersection of Technology and media You know we've been a technology company for many years just kind of not your typical one we were known as, Cable Company and in the past. Ten or fifteen years really also rounded out our business with a lot of content. So we're also a media company and we're also global company were known for our business in the US, but we most recently bought sky, and so we have cable and satellite offerings now in Europe as well and with our NBC acquisition back in two dozen eleven. We really I think made made ourselves into a huge media company and we have a lot to offer there, and then you know you kind of get the best of both worlds when you have the distribution, end the media all under one house. So we have a really nice portfolio of products content. Right content and distribution not a lot of people have those together they tend to specialize. But you seem to have made a work. Yeah It's. It's great. I mean we get to do a lot of exciting things to really get great content out there we had to postpone the Olympics, but that's usually one of our most exciting times that would be universally Yeah and just being able to broadcast the Olympics in a very high quality way. But also bring that to xfinity customers with some of our products on x one and the voice remote is you really see it all come together and brought to life in an event like that. Excellent. So Should we expect the voice remote extremely voice remote? At some point in the future. Well. Actually, it's already there. At Sky. You know you may not feel the difference if you're a sky customer but the technology powering the boys, her motives, actually all of the same technology we use at comcast. we launched. Last year. I got. Aren't they did rewards and so it's all the same thing in the back end. Excellent. So why don't we start with this this at the beginning of where you were with us because I think a lot of people be interested in the journey that you took sort of building your own specialty. Assistant. Custom Assistant Oblivious starting back in twenty eleven as you said, and so how did that play a maybe you could start with the idea. What was the objective? What did you decide at that time that said, hey, we should investments. Well. You. Know we had invested quite a bit in search and even metadata a before that point and when Siri came along, you know everybody was talking about voice and it was sorta. Voices going mainstream when Siri got launched and so had US looking a little bit more seriously at the capability. Could. We bring voice to xfinity customers and we had a lot of the expertise on our team already you when you're building a search engine, you have an all P experts and you have a lot of the capabilities they're. So we started tinkering with the and really quickly we saw that it was a very useful solution. And it just a lot of momentum within the first year by by the end of the first year, we were already building a remote you know we're. We designed a remote and we started marching towards that but we also in that first year, we launched an APP. So. Once we knew we had something good. We put it out there on an Iowa APP and it was beazely a remote replacement APP. Called X one remote. And you could go in there and tap the Mike and say a voice command. And we got really nice usage on the little APP. Without a ton of marketing really just you know organically grew our user base. And we kept working toge- really accurate you know looking at that data and trying to figure out where we needed to improve. We just kept iterating, and then in twenty fifteen were ready to launch are remote, and we went out with a really big launch and twenty fifteen every new remote that we put out there was a voice. and. So we had in our first year we had a few million our up to tens of millions of remotes. and. It was the power of having that APP out there and really being able to tune the accuracy that was a great gift to us because when we launched the remote, we already knew what people are GonNa say or we had a really good idea and we had tuned our algorithms. We'd made the more sophisticated in that time as

Video Invades Photography

"In. The last couple of weeks there have been several significant camera announcements and they have me scratching my head. Canon introduced the new are five and are six and the big feature in both of those cameras is improved ability to do video, and shortly on the heels of the are five in the are six came the announcement of the. Sony. A seven s three, which is again, very heavily oriented toward video production. In fact, the last update for my Panasonic Jeanine was mainly about some video features and same thing with g h five improving video features that camera g h five is basically sold as a video camera. And the reason all of this has me scratching my head. Is because. I don't know how many photographers are that interested in video evidently must be a lot. But maybe because I'm so photography centric both with my own work and with Lens Work, the idea that my camera shoots video is. Basically. Unimportant to me if my camera had no video capabilities I, don't think I'd care. But. There's no question. There is pressure I. Guess that's the way I perceive it. Anyway, there is pressure being put on still photographers to embrace video for reasons that I guess I don't understand I was never in my youth tempted to pick up an old bolic's sixteen millimeter movie camera and try to make movies. When VCR's came out and we suddenly had cameras that could record on videotape I was never tempted to try to use. Of VHS camera to make artwork video something I, enjoy I watch television I watch movies, we all do I suppose but I was never motivated to WanNa make. Videos and partly I think because there's so many differences between video and still photography. That this intersection between equipment so that you can have a hybrid camera. Seems to me to be putting legs on a snake. It's not of any interest to those of us who are still photographers unless you're seduced into being interested in it, but it's a completely different thing for example. The most obvious difference between video and photography is that video is time based. You consume video by abandoning yourself to it's time orientation, and if a video is five minutes or ten minutes or three hours long. It takes you that long to see it. Photography is not photography. I explain. I'm going to use photography as meaning still photography. So I have to say still photography every diamond the rest of the podcast i. hope that's okay. Photography to me is not in the least time based, you can spend ten seconds looking at a photograph. You can spend ten minutes looking at a photograph. The viewer is in control of the time they are not in control of the time in a video. Okay. Yes. You can probably rewind video if you WANNA watch a certain passage of it over again but the presentation of the ideas and the visuals is completely out of our control is a viewer that makes these two media as different as different can be. Video has jump cuts were you go from one visual to the next visual and oftentimes they will do that. For example, in a conversation with the audio track not jump cutting just the video track jump cuts, but the audio is continuous. and. So there's a certain herky-jerky nece to video that can be problematic. It's not comfortable from a visual point of view. If you really want to look at the visual, it gets taken away from you at the next jump cut and it seems to me like the jump cuts are happening faster and faster and faster in the last ten or twenty years. Conversely. Photography offers us the possibility of lingering as long as we want, and we're in control of when we go to the next image whether that's in a book or a gallery presentation again as different as different can be. Next. Video does not translate to my favorite photographic medium, which is books. Photography does. Okay video can be translated to a laptop or to an ipad or something like that. But it's not the same as a book when I sit down with the book for example, I know exactly how much there is just by looking at how thick the book is with video I have no idea unless they tell me how long it is. So it's a variable commitment on my part that I'm basically jumping into and I don't know how long this is going to take unless I specifically look it up. And also with the book. I can have text I can read things or not read things there can be. Passages that have. Only with no images so that it gives me a different and unique experience where I can sort of recall images in my mind's eye while I'm reading the text, which you basically can't do when you're watching a movie. You can't recall a different image than you're seeing on the screen unless you I suppose you could close your eyes but no one does that. So. If photography has a destination of book and video does not where do you view video while you're going to view it in a movie theater you're going to view it on television you're going to view it on a computer screen. Photography. Can Be displayed on a computer screen but I don't ever recall seeing a photographic exhibition in a movie theater at her or really do I recall seeing one broadcast on television You could put a slide show I, suppose on you television, but even that's not exactly the same thing but. Sort of I mean there's a little bit of cross fertilization there. But although we can put. Still photographs on a TV screen, we can't put a video in

"Three three her plan you know Jeanine there aren't some financial advisors out there who are just flat out liars but that's actually pretty rare for the most part I don't think he advises route they're flat out lying to people read more often based on what I've learned through the years of working with financial advisors all across the country is that some are just guilty of making statements that they've been maybe conditioned is the right word to say over the years even if those statements don't exactly ring true and someone talk about why you should be cautious if you hear certain statements come from a financial adviser and I'm sure that you've seen colleagues kind of walk down this path before it may be in you've heard from your clients before Jennifer they tell you about their experiences with other financial advisors and why they've eventually landed in in your office in your room and having a conversation about some of the things so I walk you through some of these things feel free to agree or disagree the thieves would kind of classified as you know financial lives if an advisor ever says we can beat the market what should one do well first off that is something that is implied or inferred by the financial media active investors say those that like to trade or mutual funds that are active funds their advertising all of their sales material infers that they can beat the market and the actual research shows that's not the case that active investors are actively invested funds don't repeat if they had a very good year let's say there was a bit and everybody had a good year in twenty nineteen but they don't repeat the following year and so what you have to understand is the market is random fifty years of research including since we have computers we can track a lot of these things including stock prices and what it shows is that the market is indeed random and if it's random then you don't want to chase it by attempting to beat yes Sir that's a very important point that a lot of people mess because the financial media has you convinced that they can do it or some adviser can do it or some money manager can do it so maybe you can do it too that's a great point yes and that's a great example of the kind of being conditioned to maybe puff out that just a little bit in terms of with that performance looks like but it doesn't always come down to the market there are other items as well a lot of advisers Jeanine will say that you know there are no fees I have this blanket blanket statement you know everything's free no fees but we all know that there's no such thing as a free lunch right that's exactly right and so right now there is a fee war happening between some of the very big custodians like Schwab or TD Ameritrade or each trainer all of them have gone to no fees no trading fees well I guarantee you they're taking fees somewhere because he can't exist without some fee structure so a lot of people interestingly enough I think there are new fees in there for a one case and for three ABC and that is absolutely not true if you have mutual funds that you're using for your investments in these employer plans there are definitely fees there within the mutual funds they were they're not required by law to be placed in the expense ratios and Sir what's not posted is any tax drag or any other things so there is no such thing as no fees it's a great points name no fees is that really is just a marketing push with there's so much more behind that but like keeping it vague they can make it sound very attractive I also hear this term a lot no risk there's no risk here with this sometimes it's an investment or strategy you know fill in the blank but this talk of no risk but I thought pretty much anything that came to investing at least has some element of risk right that's exactly right there is always a risk and cash can be a risk because if you have most of your money in cash the risk is you will not last outlast inflation or tax that's what they call losing money safely right that's right you're going broke safely so there is always a risk the question is what is it relative to and so yes investing has risks then the question is how much risk can I withstand which is really how much loss tolerance do I have the you know with the market going up and down as my portfolio going up and down if it makes me really nervous for it to drop ten percent then we need to evaluate what kind of portfolio eight and one half and then that must be there by default you also have to realize you're not going to get twenty percent returns when the S. and P. five is doing twenty percent it just doesn't happen risk is a very important part of the conversation and it's important to understand what it is and how to measure it it's another one of those financial lives maybe we should but lies in quotation marks because again some of these things aren't flat out lies but they're not telling you the whole truth there's maybe some misinformation or miss representation going on at times bending the truth a little bit here and there sometimes it's just outmoded ways of thinking that kind of morph into a financial lodging him and that you hear that a lot when it comes to taxes you know there's advisors out there who will kind of go to this old standby belief that you know what your tax rate is going to be much lower in retirement and they build a financial plan based off of that piece of information but are you seeing that truly is the case for most of your retirees that you work with well you know it's so depends on the individual circumstance that is kind of a given in financial planning to tell folks are folks have come to believe that they will be they'll be lower taxes in retirement but that is not necessarily true if you are not changing your lifestyle or downsizing your lifestyle and if even if you downsize your lifestyle and the tax brackets change you may be in the same tax bracket as you are or just slightly lower so you have to look at the tax rate is important it's important to plan for in retirement but it may not be lower for many people we're going through a lot of these financial lies kind of one after another because if you've built your financial plan off of or a relationship with a financial advisor off of one of these statements the net can be a little red flag in a little noticed that maybe you're not as well prepared for retirement or your financial future as you once thought you were maybe you've built your financial plan off of a financial life that's over hitting one of these after another here on today show another one Jeanine you should never pay off your house early when interest rates are this low I enjoy this debate where people talk about whether to pay your house off early or keep paying it because you can make more in the market by not paying it off and using the if those funds that you would have paid off with to invest it's an interesting math experiment verses you know how emotions get involved in part of the process I don't know if that was of a financial life is it is it just a humongous it depends right well exactly and so the mortgage industry has a vested interest in you paying arm you're taking out a fifteen year loan because they get their money the bank gets its money back faster mortgages are really and this is how people need to think about this a mortgage is not necessarily a lien against the property it's a lien against your income so for some people to pay off their mortgages this is an emotional decision it's not an economic one right now mortgage rates are extremely low probably the lowest well we've ever seen and which is phenomenal for for specially first time home owners but whether you should pay off your house early has to do with cash flow I would not want to be obligated with a higher cash flow then would be comfortable which is what a lot of people end up doing when they get fifteen year mortgages I would prefer to get a thirty year mortgage and create my own mortgage over that period of time they may be paying one extra payment a year but then if the coronavirus hits and you hit job trouble or need extra cash flow to make it through the eyes you have the flexibility to peel back on your payments that is exactly right and then I was gung ho about going for the fifteen year Jeanine because we're we're in the market to refinance and we're kind of waiting to pull that trigger maybe at any moment right now we're kind of kind of watching the rates and seeing what's happening and that we were playing it to see if it'll go a little bit lower than it is right now and I was a gung ho about doing a fifteen when we first started you know kind of going down this road in this process a little bit earlier in the year and then when all this started to happen and and get trigger down kind of rethinking that whole thing so when we go to lock in I I haven't fully made up my mind yet but I'm that's why this was such an interest I've been doing a lot of reading on the comparisons the math comparisons between the two and everybody talking about their experiences of what works best and what didn't so so the only thing yeah I'll have to send you a a mathematical comparison because my our younger son just as purchasing his first home and I was shocked that he was able to lock in a rate at two point seven five thirty year fixed wow that's great that has never happened our first house that we bought after getting married the interest rate was thirteen percent that's the life of my folks have always told me about it at all saying the same thing yeah I mean huge huge difference and I said you know you definitely I mean especially when if you're young you're just starting out or you're refinancing I mean some older folks on retired folks don't want to do the thirty year fixed because all my gosh my mortgages for thirty years well now it's your cash application and you can always pay it down then the loan sooner depending on your circumstances so you know if you live in an area that has high appreciation rate in housing values why would you give the bank back their money any faster but you know we so it's it's one that's fun to debate and with the super low interest rates stuff today I would definitely look to refinance at these lower rates yeah that's a good point that the you look at the math difference by getting a better rate by going with the fifteen and it sounds like you're going to save a ton of money over the course of the line by going that route but if you are investing that difference that's right that gap a lot yeah that's the key you have to invest the difference it does make it didn't boil it down almost more of an emotional decision at that point which is kind of interesting yeah yeah so fascinating discussion last but not least and we heard this line two thousand eight with this kind of got taken away a little bit Jeanine over the last decade we we less and less started to say this is an example because I think people forgot and now people been hearing this phrase all over again you know it's just a paper loss hang in there and you'll be fine now why would that classifies a financial life potential it's it's a little bit of twisting of the truth so yes it is a paper loss because you haven't cashed out or you haven't sold at the low point to it would you know as long as you just leave it alone and in the market comes back then you really don't have a loss per se right now the market is declining so hanging in there you'll be fine is is somewhat accurate in that you know depending on how your portfolio is allocated and you don't panic then you really the loss has not been realized is the correct term if I sell out or I go to cash than I have realized the losses Sir if I don't want to do that then I need to you know stay disciplined and then look to reevaluate how you are positioned strategically and that so that's very important because the people who panic can cash out are the ones who are realizing those losses so yes you do have to hang in there that's not quite a lot so if any of these lies connect with you but you've heard before you're worried you're concerned about your own situation I would invite you to get in touch with us call the office we can set up a fifteen minute phone call we can set up a time to meet remotely we're doing zero meetings all the time they're actually a lot of fun and we do get a lot done so I would invite you to call the office at eight three three her plan that's eight three three four three seven seventy five.

"Three her plan now Jeanine since we're talking about cleaning out the closet and getting our financial lives organized as well it's one thing to get the closet cleaned out right now you get this and because we got to figure out how to put stuff back in there so you know what innocent there's like the two step process the cleaning out and in the organization and for me it was when I did this it was like all right now what makes more sense because when we first moved in we just threw stuff in there with no rhyme or reason now you wanted actually put some thought into what's the efficient use of the space what's the best way to go about it you know things that I don't use as often let's put those up on the top shelf and put the things we use more off a little bit lower you know a method to the madness if you will same thing financially I would imagine I mean what are some other tips that you would give to folks the recommended them to get that closet organize from a financial standpoint what part of it is yes again organize all your statements and your policies and let now let's start looking at how they have actually work together so if you're cleaning out a closet you're also going through stuff that you haven't looked at in maybe a year or two years or five years and maybe I don't need that anymore so when you're going through the financial closet what do you have and how does it work and does it still serves the same purpose you had when you know that you intended it for when you purchased it well you know what kind of life insurance what have you know how does that work does it protect assets what is your auto and home policies what what do they do do you understand how they work so we do a lot of analysis of what you currently have and then start looking at do we need this are we gonna need in five years or ten years that we keep it to change it I mean you're doing the same thing with your wardrobe if you're going through because it's your car you're throwing out things you've been collecting for years because you find out well that was a great idea when I bought it but now I don't like it well it's the same situation because we're trying to match what your expectations are everybody talks about dreams and goals but I like to stick to what expectations are because lifestyle is a very important aspect of planning but it be you know based on what you're doing now but what you're going to be doing in the future is just as important and so and that's a picture you haven't seen before so yes there's a there's a goal I want to have this specific lifestyle but can I get there and how do I get there those are really important questions and puzzles that we try to solve when folks come in so we have a we have a process it's called the smart money map and we go through all of this and start looking at what your options really are based on what you're trying to do and I have a lot of clients that adds they've gone through this process there they're very grateful they feel very relieved that they've had the opportunity to kind of clean out the closet I understand what they have Jensen things they don't need and then go forward you know one understanding that we're going to review periodically if it's still working because just like old shoes you have to get new ones casually said with our smart money map process we take a look at everything you have been doing and go through all of those statements and policies and expectations and then we put those into context and we're trying to help you understand what income is going to be reasonable you have a dream and a goal but can you even get there if if it if you can that's great because the process is going to show that they were trying to put everything in context so that it's easy to understand and the folks who do go through this process feel very the report with with that feedback we've gotten is that it's very much a relief to see that I'm actually going to be okay and this is going to work going through a defined process is so important to make sure that you're on the right track to get to and all the way through retirement and that's with Janine and her team certainly do want to daily basis is helping folks go from okay I have this cluttered closet it's it's an organized I'm not really sure where things are supposed to go I'm not sure how to get started what is the final product need to look like and that's the same thing they do in the financial plan they take all your statements all your balances all of the pieces of the puzzle lay them out and say all right now how does it make the most sense to put all these things together to accomplish those financial goals what's realistic what can we accomplish what's going to meet your needs now and into the future and if you've ever been through that kind of planning process before than I do encourage you to reach out because you need we'll help you whether you're single or a couple or we don't even care gene if there's three or four of you were for worried about dog more than you you know whatever the situation is that you're in you need a plan that gets you to and through retirement and what it brings in more peace of mind and a great chance of success in your retirement years that's what it's all about but it doesn't happen until you get a plan in place and the number to call to set up a time for complementary review with Jeanine is eight three three four three seven seventy five twenty six that's eight three three her plan called get on the calendar talk about what you want to go over to discuss your financial future some of the things that are important to you just give a call and expressed that interest now eight three three her plan is the number that's eight three three four three seven seventy five twenty six the biggest mistake you can make is to procrastinate that's honestly one of the biggest mistakes that people make in their financial lives is procrastinating getting that plan in place time often is of the essence because if you make a mistake sometimes those mistakes are irreversible and so we can't make those mistakes when you're closer and closer to retirement so if you're getting close thinking about the future wondering how to put the best plan in place don't.

"And I think this is an important one to address right now to give in the corona virus situation we're in and that's assuming that one particular financial tool is always good or bad there's no such thing right I mean there is there is a plans are neither good or bad well you know they're neither right or wrong they just far and sometimes you've gotten into a plan he's made some decisions based on the information you had at the time or the circumstances and those circumstances have changed so that there is a better than a screwdriver it just does a job a different job but different directly right so you know for a period of time let's just say investment A. or strategy a is better than strategy be but times change we know that the only thing constant is change and so when things change technology changes your situation changes you know you have a premature death in the family somebody's in long term care now you have to care for them now you have a maybe you're caring for a grandchild that you hadn't planned to care for sometimes that happens so you you need you know you need a different plan so tools just the are already exist out there as options that fit like legos into your plan and that's what we do when we meet with clients is one of the legos we need to put together the plan is going to work for you now to the best of our ability because you could walk out the door and you know get hit by the car and is that when you want to know your plans going to work or not so there are a lot of what if scenarios we go through to see what is it that you want to have happen and the tools again exist as options and so you're constantly looking at those are we are constantly looking at those instead of making sweeping generalizations people aren't cookies and so cookie cutter approaches don't really work everybody situation is unique and if you and if you've been feeling that you had a cookie cutter approach in the last experience you had we invite you to come on in because we we customize our options and scenarios to you the individual all you have to do to set up a time to meet with Jeanine again either in person or remotely whatever you're more comfortable with but while you're thinking about it today and wondering how can I get a better financial plan in place pull the trigger and collagen in right.

"A new novel by Jeanine Cummins has opened up a debate about white privilege racism in publishing and the unintended consequences of telling a story that is not your own the book is called American dirt and the much hyped new novel was released this week it's the story of a Mexican woman named Lydia and her eight year old son Luca here's part of an interview I did with comments the idea of this book for me was to remember the humanity of migrants and I feel like so often the conversation in this country when it comes to migration and immigration turns around a very specific kind of stereotype and I wanted to make sure that Lydia was a character who could turn that stereotype on its ear you know that she would be counter to our typical sort of notions of what a migrant looks like Lydia feels like she has no other choice but to flee and the book is the story of their harrowing journey to the U. S. Mexico border it has been hailed as a grapes of wrath for our times in fact that quote is on the cover of the book and that's one of the many problems with American dirt according to several critics there have been tweet threads essays all arguing that the book deploys harmful stereo types there's even a hash tag my Latino novel where people write their own parodies elsewhere in the show you'll hear my interview with Jeanine Cummins and her reaction all the criticism but there's so much more to say about these very difficult issues of race and identity in publishing and which voices are elevated in the broader culture so we called up one of the most vocal critics of American dirt her name is as world of Bermudez and she's a writer with the LA times in seventeen years of journalism of interviewing thousands of immigrants I've never come across anyone like American earth main character she she's his middle class bookstore owning woman who left Mexico with a small fortune in her pocket like she was going to go to France or something in with inheritance money with an ATM to her mom's life saving and why did she leave because she was flirting with the drug lord whose now trying to kill her this is this is a wonderful you know our melodramatic telenovela something I would love watching like on are just search for a cheap entertainment like a a narcoleptic real on Netflix but they should not be called by anyone the great immigrant novel the story of our time the grapes of wrath why how did we get to a point in our industry in the book industry in society that this is the low standard that we have for me does like many other speaking out against the book says despite the author's intentions it doesn't reflect the truth of the migrant experience my grandfather my aunt my uncle were killed and also at a time of death what death squads sponsored by the US I was separated from my mom I didn't meet her until I was five because of all this violence I wanted to see myself reflected in this book it's painful that not only did I not see myself but I found all these things that constantly make us feel small she understands Americans who are not migrants themselves or come from migrant families might walk away from this book with a completely different feeling is because last a lot of white readers with this very fuzzy feeling like all my god about immigrants and and my skin is crawling my skin's crawling as world leaders of the LA times her piece on American dirt appears in the paper today listen for my conversation with the book's author Jeanine Cummins elsewhere in the show and it's time FOR StoryCorps on this Friday six year old Jerry Morrison is obsessed with outer space so of course his favorite person to talk to is this uncle Joey Jefferson a mission.
