So was kind of cool. Alright, let's talk about your drive this morning because we want to take you back into Venice Beach. Okay, the situation that continues and we're talking about some major closures are Dan Lunceford here with the active investigation? You see this car that's trying to break through. Pretty obvious that's a this is closed. Great job here by Dan to be able to capture this, So the driver is going super fast. Obviously, the officer spotted him and said, No, no, You're not coming this way, dude. So Basically, we are talking about Rose Avenue at Lincoln, and I think they're going to make sure this guy gets pulled over is probably going to get a ticket. You see the flares on the road direction, not even supposed to be able to drive over them. And so this guy was pulling a big No, no. May not have been paying attention. And that's the reason we give you the information that the streets here are closed for this homicide investigation. Check this person out to see what are you doing again? We're talking about rose.

It's still a pretty good ride moving over to look at the five South bound side right about not the left Lane is blocked with the crash. They cleared some of the other lanes, but the conditions are going to be a little tough if you have plans to be on that stretch of the five freeway You already see, some slowing will.

"And if you don't like John Denver, you get off my show right now. Ted Harvey. That joke would have landed better if his audio was potted up. Okay, that that I have included. Sorry about that. You do like John Denver, don't you? Of course I do. Who doesn't like John Denver? What part of Colorado? Are you in? I'm in a suburb of Denver calling drench Colorado. What does it go? Highlands Ranch highlands range, So I spent a Pretty good amount of time in Colorado, and I don't know what your position was on marijuana legalization. But from what I've seen, and I'm not in Denver. But from what I've seen, um it was a sleeper. It doesn't. It hasn't really made a huge difference. What would you say? Um our homeless population has exploded. Um, because every pot head in the country came to Colorado when it first passed because we were the first and only state. In the country that legalized it. So in that regard it was detrimental. But with regards to new revenue coming in with regards to huge impacts on On individual health. No, I don't think it's had a big impact. But with regards to the homeless camps on the front steps of the state Capitol, it's been devastating for the business is in downtown Denver. You know, Ted, I don't know what it is about the left. But there is this love affair with homeless squalor. In the major cities. I saw it starting in Portland. It's happened in San Francisco and now Austin, Texas closer to me and Houston, You can't walk down sixth Street or fifth Street or four streets. Some of the pretty old streets. The historic Driscoll hotel that the sidewalks which were nice wide, ample sidewalks are now occupied by oversized luxury double wide tents and people naked inside, peeing and pooping all over the streets. I don't know what it is about the left and their love affair with homelessness, but I it It's weird. It's really weird. And they passed ordinances that say you have a right to rest, meaning the police can't make you leave. And the business owners who have to walk by you on the Sidewalks can't force you to leave. It is it is destroying the inner cities of America. Had. Harvey is a former Colorado state senator. He serves his chairman of the committee to defeat the president. You can find them online it stop joe dot com The article that you wrote that came to my attention was Biden attacks. Second Amendment. Here's what the president's gun grab is really all about. What I like to do just kind of go through some of the points you make in that piece, including you start with Biden took $5 billion for quote Community violence prevention into his $2 trillion infrastructure program aimed at addressing so called structural racism. Well, if you look at what the Democrats mantra is, is that we have to defund the police and we need to allow for On social services, social welfare services to be able to go in and work with, um these criminals that are destroying our towns. And, um, he is pushing that liberal agenda very similar to what we were just talking about, rather than actually solving the problems that is affecting our culture and Causing all of the crime that we're seeing across the streets of America it and, um he's going up there and it's housing this gun control for Something that is, um in my opinion, smoke and mirrors rather than talking about the exact issue that he's trying to push. You know? I've known a lot of Houston Police department officers over the years and Typically, the case when they clean up a drive by shooting scene is their immediate concern is this is yet another example of the byproduct of structural racism. Causes people to randomly drive through the hood and shoot through windows. It's a It's a terrible, terrible thing. You note that the Biden administration is directing the Justice Department to bring more legal cases. Against firearms dealers and manufacturers. We've had several guests. This trend is bubbling up because we're not seeing the cases yet, but as we do, it's very disturbing, isn't it? We're trying to bankrupt the firearms industry. They know that if these companies continually have to defend themselves that they're gonna have to go out of business, and they can't outlaw them through statute, because there's not enough votes in the Legislature, so they're trying to do it through the court system, and that What the Democrats always do is push their radical agenda through the court system. And that's honestly why they're freaking out right now because Trump got control of the Supreme Court appointed over 200 conservative constitutionalists. Tol appellate courses courts across the country. The Democrats have lost their one tool to push through their radical agenda, but they're still going to try to do it enforced People out of business just by Threatening lawsuits. Judicial activism is the means by wish the left thwarts the will of the majority and Donald Trump's greatest legacy may yet be decades from now. How well they staffed the judiciary if those folks live up to our expectations for them, and it's the thing that is least noticed today, but will have the most lasting impact, and it is incredibly powerful. That's exactly right. That's exactly right. I mean, I'm a passing its second Amendment advocate and a passionate pro life advocate, and Donald Trump probably will go down as one of the best presidents we've ever had simply on his judicial appointments on those two issues. I hope so. The Supreme Court just took up. Has concealed carry case and hopefully they rule on the side of individuals constitutional and they unalienable right to self defense. You know, I will tell you on the issue of gun control. I have watched how many Reagan Democrats blue collar Democrats, especially white males. Who will either not vote or sometimes go Democrat for Bill Clinton over maybe or a Joe Biden over a union issue, and I find that the one thing that spurs them more than anything else. More than taking their taxes away, or even in some cases, an open border is gun control. I hope Biden goes full throttle gun control, because that's how we win.

"Gym bag full of clothes and increased to Qatar seventeen year old Henry. John Deutch door reported for duty to the newly formed United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs Colorado in September of nineteen sixty. The Elite Academy was so new that it had just graduated its first class. You're earlier in one thousand nine hundred fifty nine. John was ushered through Basic Training. Like all the other students but by the time. November rolled around. John had been reassigned to a smaller group of students in a different type of training academics fitness. Airmanship were all sidelined for the moment in place of one thing and one thing only shooting John along with two other highly adept shooters students like himself removed out of the dorms and into their own living facility on the outskirts of campus every morning it oh five hundred hours. There were awakened in guided through their day by the professor. A man by the name of Doc. Doc was effectively the only person other than themselves. The cadets now saw in Dr Care of everything ushering John and his classmates through their morning routine transporting them out to the shooting range through daily maneuvers including marksmanship battlefield. Intelligence stocking and other sniper related skills dogs primary mission was to impart upon his students. Long range precision. Fire sniping skills to this end. Everything was perfectly calibrated during Johnson. His fellow students days their meals their study and even their free time meals were prepared by doc quote unquote. Academics consisted of doc literally reading to his students usually military history and almost always something from other Roman history or US revolutionary war history and free. Time consisted of DOC sitting in the middle of the small sniper student living facility in regaling students with stories of his days in the European theater of war during the big one hunting Nazis Frankel. It was a highly structured highly sheltered time of constance for young John Patriotism Dedication to country above all else along with marksmanship training. Were all the John was exposed to every minute of every day and everything else was the same as well the routine the time the place. It was as if everything John's life were wrote right down to his daily meals. Everything was a repetitive motion of the time before always the same breakfast oatmeal and hard boiled eggs every morning. Lunch tuna sandwich with cheese and butter on bread every afternoon. Dinner mystery meat and potatoes and bold carrots. The white bread roll water milk juice were all they were allowed to drink. Ever and of course deserve was always followed up with a shot of mandatory fluoride a small shock last size poll of tasteless warm water. The dock insisted they swallow every last drop of he'd watch each of them intently to make sure it was all swallowed and inspect their paper cups afterward to be sure they were empty. John and his classmates would pass out soon. After John would dream intensely usually about shooting sniping. Some scenario mixing the training heat endured that day. With one of DOC's war stories and often involving music John playing his acoustic in the bombed-out streets of Dresden playing acoustic side Washington and his men at Valley forge playing his acoustic with the Syrians at Carthage often back home and is living room serenading sweaty former Vice President Nixon to the approval of his father and to the disapproval of the now President John F. Kennedy when it came to music to playing music. That is John's dreams were all he had. His Acoustic Guitar was confiscated when he showed up at school. And along with everything else going on in the outside world music was not allowed in any way shape or form at the academy at least not at the part of the academy were John was stashed away years later by the time John. Become a singing sensation these days at the academy. Were barely even there in memory anymore. His time there was merely a decade removed and still trying to conjure images of this time was next to impossible even more difficult to remember where the years following a black spot in his memory bank. John did his time in the academy. He remembered nothing of his classmates. Doc His teacher was basically all he could recall him in the mysterious Mr Hunt who visited every couple months or so observed his training in said little hunt with his big black. Solis is in giant dumbo. Years was hard. The Miss Never Mind forget when John would try to remember those days and come up short. The feeling of frustration would quickly turn to shame to Gill and John had no idea why perhaps it was due to his time in the war after the academy the Goddamn Vietnam War torn the country apart and John was not only ashamed of his personal participation but also like most men is age in the nineteen seventies. John was ashamed of his country's participation as well. It seems so long ago and like his days at the academy. John could remember little less seat. He laid back in bed sip on his red wine. And try telling the very sexy half naked career minded Gal side. What it was like to kill a man you know. I can't remember hardly anything. I just sit. Wait wait wait some more. By the time the enemy will cross into my site I pull. The trigger was as a fall. Humanity had already been drained from the situation. I did it so many times. That was all routine but now the Gill Tavee heavier than it should be. We're at war. For reason they were the enemy was kill or be killed you know. She nodded shocked barely able to process with John Denver. One of the country's biggest popstars a man known for his peaceful kind demeanor was telling her that he was a secret assassin in the Vietnam War before forging his way in the music industry John went on. I appreciate you. Let me tell you this. Even though we just met I feel like I can share this with you. If Jerry ever found out though that I was telling you this he killed me. Thank God Jerry. Jerry was John's manager and John was an absolute sap when it came to sexy women and the one in the bed next to him at the moment was Jerry's new secretary she be Jerry's ex secretaries soon as Jerry found out she was stooping. The talent Jerry was Jerry Weintraub the ubiquitous concert producer. Talent manager the nineteen seventies he took Sinatra out of retirement. He put Elvis on the road. He introduced led Zeppelin the Piedad teenagers all over America in nineteen seventy. He was an immensely powerful manager and John. Denver was church. Jerry was all street. He by on charm and grit. He took no shit. He read more Bronx gangster than colonel. Tom And no one questioned it. He saw John Denver as the precious resource he was. He deserves special attention special. Cultivate and from the moment. He was first exposed to his act. Jerry Weintraub new. The John Denver was a special type performer. He appealed to the younger hippie generation but could also appeal to their parents. In short America would welcome John into their living rooms through their televisions. In a way they wouldn't other rockstars so jerry went to work. He twisted arms to get John on the MERV Griffin Show. He took out. Full-page spreads in the trades touched up photos showing John Performing two enormous crowds. And by the time he was done. John's television appearances poured the requisite fuel needed onto the fire set by singles leaving on a jet plane and take me home country road in the process. John Denver burned up the charts by nineteen seventy five. His music was ubiquitous and he was every bit the household name is Sinatra Presley. And none of it would have happened without Jerry Weintraub and not just because of his music management skills. Either Jerry can make things happen sure but you could also make things go away by John's military record years later Matt Damon and his dad when Golfing with Jerry Weintraub. Damon's dad gave him shit for not finishing school at Harvard. Graduating and Jerry Weintraub interjected. Ever the problem solver. You want a diploma. I get you a diploma. Damon looked up from his T-. Hi You're GonNa give me a diploma Jerry. I know a guy demon. You know a guy fucked zapped me. Jerry is always a Guy. Why Trump Street smarts informed his worldview? There was indeed always a guy came to John Denver and his time in the Vietnam War. Jerry Weintraub most certainly new Guy John's record completely expunged concocting some story and records. Toback it up. The John was marked for F- into his flat feet so John was able to avoid the draft and thus the military at a time when you most certainly would have been shipped off to be NAM but that was all bullshit. John Denver definitely served in the military by the time. He become a popstar under the making in guidance of Jerry. Weintraub having a military record wasn't an option would not have played with the peaceful pacifist. Image John incongruency radiated that America was so attracted to furthermore Jerry Weintraub cooked up another for Kochta story to completely account for John. Denver's time in the military including his time in sniper school at the Air Force Academy prior. The story went. The John Ran away from college to change his name and explore the emerging.

North Korea, Kim Jong Hoon And President Trump discussed on Ben Shapiro
"Is that North Korea is back in the missile business. According to US news and World Report North Korea on Thursday launch eight launch to short range missiles, marking the second weapons test in less than a week and further training US led efforts for denuclearizing the Korean peninsula. The South Korean joint chiefs of staff announced the launch and a statement saying the missiles were fired from the northwest city of couse, oh and traveled roughly two hundred and sixty miles to the east. There can go shares are currently in South Korea for discussions on how to break the impasse following too high level summits between President Donald Trump in North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN that failed to secure any lasting changes launch comes less than a week. After North Korea fired several short-range missiles on Saturday was the first weapons test since November twenty seventeen Trump has previously cited North Korea's lull in missile nuclear test as evidence that his outreach to the hermit kingdom was proving successful North Korea's ministry afford affairs defended Saturdays. Launch as a routine and self-defensive military drill. Analysts had the missile trajectory and the distance traveled. We're not indicative of ballistic weapons, none of the White House Trump immediately commented on the launch on Thursday. The president tweeted shortly after the Saturday. We'll let you believe Kim quote realizes the great economic potential of North Korea and will do nothing to interfere ended. Adding he also knows within and does not want to break his promise to me. Now, I have always been super skeptical of President Trump's personal approach to diplomacy with Kim Jong Hoon. I really don't believe that the president just by making. Is it Kim Jong Hoon is somehow going to convince them to give up his nuclear weapons, which after all are the only reason it can juggle it still in power. What we have is an intractable situation, which the only thing we want from Kim Jong Hoon is the only thing he will never be willing to give because it's the only thing that prevents him from being taken out. If all Kim Jong Hoon had where conventional weapons there'd be a serious move for regime change in North Korea with nuclear weapons makes it very difficult to talk about regime change, and so Kim is going to act out and he's going to lash out and he's going to get concessions from the west. He's been doing this for for ten years. He's been doing this as long as before before him his father. Did this Kim Jong Il did this loan before Kim Jong food and his father did it before him hills? Some did it before that. So we have long records of North Korean leadership manipulating the western media manipulating western leaders by supposedly getting violence, and then backing off just in time to receive some sort of subsidy from the west the only thing that can really be done in North Korea is to contain them militarily and to pressure China to do something to topple the regime or prepare some sort of. Move inside the military to get rid of Kim Jong Hoon very difficult to do that. When there's very little access to North Korea itself. But the notion that President Trump had broken the impasse that some great breakthrough had happened that Kim Jong had decided to rejoin the world simply because Trump asked him to that. I always thought that was foolish. I thought it was also dangerous because Kim Jong Il had been legitimised on the international stage by the president of the United States seeing the North Korean flags giant gulag states in the North Korean flag flying alongside the American flag in negotiations when we're not talking about an existential threat to the United States like the USSR negotiate with the USSR because you have to negotiate with USSR not because you want to negotiate with the USSR necessarily Kim Jong Hoon wants to be seen as an as an international power player, particularly domestically. So he's not threatened by his own military. That was a mistake for President Trump to grant him all that credibility. And of course, there's been controversy over the handling of outta warmbier and all the rest, Kim traveled to eastern Russia. Just last month to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss how the two countries could cooperate representing their first face-to-face meeting in North Korean leader's first trip to the country in almost a decade. That is probably not a coincidence that he met with Russia, and then started firing missiles again, I'm sure they've led Putin is all too happy to have North Korea threatening America from afar. Kim in Trump's meeting in Vietnam in February ends at an impasse. Because America insisted that North Korea denuclearize killing gangs mandated that the us provide sanctions relief. I earlier this week. The Pentagon announced it had ceased efforts to recover the remains of American war dead citing an inability to contact their North Korean counterparts. You will recall that President Trump had touted that it said that the big results from this meeting is that America's Korean war dead were coming home. Apparently that was not true. Then a phone call on Tuesday following the Saturday launch from purportedly encouraged South Korean president moon Jae in to continue providing food aid to the north a crisis, both South Korea, and the United States Pyongyang has manufactured saying it's timely, and we'll be a positive move. It is unclear why we want to continue sending food aid to North Korea. When the entire crisis is manufactured by the governments and their goal in having shipments. Made to them is to enrich the regime. The recent launches make things particularly awkward for moon Jae in moon Jae in the South Korean president is part of what is called the sunshine administration over there wants to open relations with Kim Jong Hoon. On Tuesday moon, it touted his administration's achievements in an op Ed writing that the sounds of gunfire have disappeared in the air on CNN the ground around the Korean peninsula. And no that is not correct. Just hours before the defense ministry confirmed the missile test. Moon's official Twitter account posted a picture of his meeting with Kim as the two officials smiled with the quotation piece has become a part of everyday life. Yeah. It turns out that trusting one of the world's worst, dictators is a mistake. Meanwhile, President Trump's administration is very weird and how it operates in terms of foreign policy. One of the reasons that it's very weird is because all of his subordinates basically operate as free agents. And then every so often he sort of inserts himself. Latest example of this. According to the Washington Post US authorities now seized a North Korean ship used to sell coal allegedly in violation of international sanctions that is the first such move by Justice department officials as they ratchet up enforcement efforts against the regime in Pyongyang Justice department officials on Thursday confirmed the vessel. The wise honest is approaching us territorial waters in American Samoa in coordination with US marshals end, the coastguard Attorney General John Denver's assistance to AIG. Emerson the sanction-busting ship is now out of service. So this came just hours after North Korea launched the pair of short range missiles Eleanor. It's funny for a president who declares that. He is a realist is a foreign policy realist, and he cares about foreign policy realism hard nose negotiation when it comes to his actual negotiations strategy, the sort of personal overtures, the what if I make you a video about how nice North Korea will be when you have some when you have some ocean front hotels that sort of stuff is not realistic the realistic perspective on foreign policy suggests realism realism suggests that realpolitik meeting the interest of the states are what is it issue? Look if Kim Jong UN wanted to open up his state and become more economically prosperous. He could do it right now. He's at right. This very instant all he has to do is give up those nuclear weapons and declared that he's going to democratize his country. That's all he has to do. But you'll never knew that obviously why. Because personal power matters most to the Kim family some of the worst blights on human leadership of the last fifty to seventy years. The fact that the Trump administration on the one hand you've got Trump offering the outstretched arm on the other hand, you got the geo J cracking down on North Korea via sanctions, it's pretty incoherent. It's pretty

Didn't say those words I was saying country force because I was mistaking and I corrected it to country house and these. Nimrods idiots asked hats decided to take it into file a great John Denver song. It's not my fault. Are you down? You got your sister either way that was blocked on Facebook. Because we use that song. Yes. Actually, we were gonna talk about that. So that algorithm, they have that that that other people speech and ideas quickly under the guise of copyright infringement. Right. Pull something which is stupid because we're not like it. It's only an advantage for John Denver to have a song that is long past being on the charts remembered occasionally when somebody decides to play it on their radio or something. I mean, it's like, yeah. I believe in artists rights and all that kind of stuff, but it's come on. It's it's ridiculous. That Facebook has got some kind of what they do. I don't know how they figure it out. But Facebook will censor it out. They will sometimes inter out. The intro song to my show. If I do a live Facebook at the beginning now YouTube is full of songs. Well, you have diabetes song while YouTube is cracking down on that too on YouTube. If you're doing. Video podcasts, and you play anything else that's outside of that realm, or whatever other content. They will nail it even if it's on YouTube, which is weird. Because the thing can be on YouTube put there by somebody else. And then you can play it on your podcast, and they will tag it like they'll now you the other thing. That's kind of weird is have you heard about I read this article in money magazine last week? So you remember fine. Oh, yeah. Those those little five second videos, six seconds, six seconds. Yeah. Several people got actually literally famous just by doing vines. There's one comedian that chick that just married Tarzan, just married. Tommy Lee Jones. Mary Tommy Lee Jones. I forget her name. But she was she's Kathy Lee Gifford. No, she's famous, but she's famous only because she's a comedian. But she's only famous because she did funny vines. So apparently what's happening is now there's a thing. Young people are going back and collecting old vines that really don't exist anymore, but they live on the internet, creating YouTube compilations of the vines, and they are doing it. And they think it's art, you know, because they're like, oh, it's the way I we've these different vines, and it takes you through a different set of emotions or whatever. Well, now, there's a company based in Phoenix that catches those vines on YouTube, then notifies the person who made it that they have to pay money to the people who created the vine now get this. I actually have a problem with this. Because the people created the vine, they created it, you know, I mean if somebody is making money off YouTube videos. Steal my grapes, man. Right. And somebody else may be made a vine and never got paid for it. You know, it wasn't something that they could get paid for it the time. But now somebody's making money by taking their content and making right? So there's one guy get this this crazy story one guy who started making these vines when his fiancee was living out of state, any Mr.. So he didn't have anything else to do. So he would make making six second video they weren't for his girlfriend. He was just killing time. Mr. any he got famous on vine when he would do is go to a grocery store, and he'd walk up behind some unsuspecting person who was looking at a cereal box and go yell. He stealing like that like real and the person would freak out drop the box, and it was six seconds. And they were hilarious like he just be walking through a a WalMart or someplace I yell. He's feeling and everybody. They freak out. They got caught doing some. Well, he went on with his life. Got married had a kid was working overnights cleaning vats at a candy candy factory. When suddenly he gets a call from this company. That says, hey, we're going to represent your vines. We'll get money for you. And we'll take half of it or whatever it is. And then you get the rest for doing nothing, and he's like, whatever. Okay, already got us. We deal. Check was two hundred fifty dollars. Second check with twenty five hundred dollars today. He makes twenty five thousand dollars a month. From royalty fees that this company is charging YouTubers. Wow. Or trying to make money off of his content. He never got paid for his vines before. Now, he's getting twenty five thousand dollars a month for a defunct technology for crappie did five six years ago. And he's rolling in it, which I think is great. That's great happy for this guy. Because now he travels and spend time with family, and he doesn't have to work the overnight shift at a candy factory. Now, he's a one percent or the how crazy is that? That's nuts. Anyway. All right. I keep promising. I'll give you some final thoughts on the expanded gambling issue. When we continue in just a moment. Tomorrow will get more in depth into the gun issue.

Oh, I see what you're saying do companies sometimes pay for that. Or is that usually always right out of your pocket gonna pay back? I see that part. I apply for a trucking company longtime jacker, I got out of the military after I get my time. Hi figured. Figure I gave it a world. But you know, it was on coffee. Six truck driving school is this something you can get a loan on Eubanks loan..
