"Control runs these stats. So yes, it is for just the awful. That's their weekday job after they're out of race control. Time to clock in at my stat job, right? Let's screw this up now. What a rough weekend. Kurt Busch. He's race controller. Why do we suck so bad? Oh man. Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch's brother, the number 45, 23 11 racing Toyota one win at this racetrack, 8 top 5s, 15 top tens in the poll, average finished with 17.58. He comes in here with some momentum though. As he won the last time out. Right. I'm so glad we have a spokesperson to get us out of jams and say we're better than we are. And so there would be out of character for us to do something that's intelligent. Oh my God. I don't know who you just did. Was it chase? No, you're doing chase. Okay, Chase has a win 5 top 5, 6 top tens. And his average finish is even 12. Wow. That's second best, by the way. That's pretty good. Speaking of Coca-Cola racing, Joey Logano, part of the Coca-Cola racing family of drivers. Yes, he had a birthday this week too. Yes, one win 6 top 5s love and top tens. An average finish of 12.478 Kerry. Sweet Brad Keselowski is not going to win, but he's got two of them before. 5 top 5s, ten top tens a poll. Average finish of 13.5. I can call that one. That's easy. I think it would be hilarious if he wins now. It would be great. There's no way. Kyle Larson, the number 5 Hendrick motor sports Chevrolet one win, two top 5s, 5 top tens in a poll. Average finished 17.417 though, that's not super great. No, and he's out of order, too, because we had a two time winner and then back to a one time winner. I don't know. The next two guys have three wins. First up is Kevin Harvick, 9 top 5s, 20 top tens, two polls, average finish of 13.935. Wow. Yeah, that's a lot of decimals. Martin Truex Junior, the number 19 joko's racing Toyota driver. He also has three wins here and he famously led all but 6 laps a few years ago. And that's a long race to lead everything. It is 7 top 5, 13 top tens in a poll average finish of 14.167. 8 best. Boom. Yes. Okay, so Carrie. We need to stop what we're doing here. Okay, like totally come to a complete stop. Check your surroundings. Carrie, all star race is over. It's over. Well, you said stop. I immediately go into nap mode. So body immediately starts regenerating and getting your energy built back up? Yes, yes. Well, the reason we were stopping here is because we're going to go talk to rowdy dragon here with his fantasy stuff. In this segment, has brought to you by the folks at PFC breaks to get it stopped. That's why bread is not actually going to take a nap or anything. I mean, you could take a nap after you stop because POC breaks are so good that you won't have any kind of heart pumping action as you're stopping at the stop sign because you're able to do it with ease with PFC brakes. Aren't you there? Fall asleep and.
Democrat Pollster Suggests Bloody Midterm for Biden
"Don't know if you've been talking about it. Have you heard about this new memo from Doug sosnik? No. Doug sosnik being very senior respected democratic pollster strategist was in the Clinton White House. That's where he became well known and in the 90s. Written this new memo to Democrats. And it's incredibly pessimistic. It says, look, basically, unless we can make something huge about a Supreme Court roe versus wade decision, unless we can pull a rabbit out of our hat. We are toast. And what he does was he lays out the mistakes that the Biden administration has made to bring Democrats to this point and I'll just the real short version is he starts off with a Biden honeymoon. Then July 4th of last year, Biden holds this Independence Day, freedom from COVID event in which he kind of declares the pandemic over and of course we know what happened then. There was a delta variant and then there was omicron. Let's just say COVID wasn't over. The next month is the disastrously bundled withdrawal from Afghanistan and people begin to question these are independents, some Democrats obviously Republicans, whether the Biden administration can confidently handle issues. So when inflation becomes really huge, Americans are worried and Biden suggests that don't worry, we're in control, we're in charge here. We know what to do. They're very skeptical about this because they have already seen what happened with COVID, and they've seen what happened in Afghanistan. Now they're watching it with the economy and they just have absolutely no faith in Biden or democratic efforts to handle things now. And he also said, do not think that voters are going to make their decision in the last couple of weeks before the election. They're making their decision right now. And as a matter of fact, it may already be made right now. This may already be said in stone. It's one of the more pessimistic democratic documents I've seen in quite a while.

It was <Speech_Female> because she hadn't gotten as many <Speech_Female> minutes. <Speech_Female> And one of the things <Speech_Female> I think will happen to Lexi, <Speech_Female> she missed a couple of <Speech_Female> shots early and maybe <Speech_Female> lost a little bit of <Speech_Female> confidence and taking that <Speech_Music_Female> wide open shot and when <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> we told her, if you're open, <Silence> you shoot it. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> And so <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> still Halley <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Silence> invested in her for the <Speech_Male> future. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Yeah, <Speech_Male> I mean, not to <Speech_Male> go back to <Speech_Male> destiny too much, <Speech_Male> but that one play <Speech_Male> of her <Speech_Male> cutting under the rim, <Speech_Male> playing in the paint against <Speech_Male> the reigning MVP <Speech_Male> is just kind of etched <Speech_Male> into my <Speech_Male> memory. <Speech_Male> Now this normally <Speech_Male> the period in the <Speech_Male> show where we do rapid <Speech_Male> fire, but <Speech_Male> really we just have one question <Speech_Male> for you. <Speech_Male> In 2012, when you <Speech_Male> won that championship, <SpeakerChange> <Silence> how did you <Speech_Music_Female> celebrate? <Speech_Music_Female> Well, I'm not sure <Speech_Music_Female> we sobered up <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> for a week.

Conservatives Fight Back Against Corporate 'Wokeness'
"With this whole corporate wokeness thing, I think a lot of conservative share my view that if you are a corporation who embraces this woke agenda who, among other things, subsidizes an assault on children and parents in public schools, which is what this gender bizarre nonsense really is. You are my enemy and I want to use all our political power to hurt you in retaliation to ensure that you don't do this again. It's not just live and let live. If you cross us, we're going to crush you. And that's what Ron DeSantis did in Florida. And frankly, I don't understand arguments that say corporation can use their culture and political power against us to achieve bizarre and damaging cultural goals. Yet I am we are somehow restrained from using our political power to defeat them. What do you think of that theory? Because I think a lot conservatives are beginning to subscribe to it. Well, there's been a long history of activist groups using boycotts to change the behavior of corporations. I mean, Jesse Jackson in the last 40, 50 years has spent most of his time doing that sort of thing challenging boards of directors, pressuring them, threatening boycotts. Companies do respond to that kind of stuff. And there's no reason that conservative groups couldn't do the same sort of thing. When you see something like this State Farm stuff and I think what we've seen is kind of a lot of business operates on fear, right? I mean, you've seen other businesses get swallowed up when some other company comes in does something better has a better idea, et cetera. So they will respond. So I think that this is actually kind of a healthy thing that we've seen after State Farm did this ridiculous thing that they've boom. They've completely 360 because they got some public exposure and pressure.
Which Republican Will Hold Pennsylvania Senate Seat?
"Look, it's going to be Doctor Oz, or David McCormick. And they're going up against John fetterman. And the conventional wisdom is that either one of these guys can take him. Am I reading that right? I think the conventional wisdom is correct given the political atmospherics and just how competitive it Pennsylvania is in the year 2022, let's say versus the year 2002. Right. So 20 years ago, Pennsylvania was always just competitive enough for Republicans to challenge for it. Let's say in presidential contests. And it did send Republicans to Congress as a part of their Senate delegation. But the state really has become super competitive and the atmosphere for Democrats is just as bad as an atmosphere I've seen for a political party. I guess it's 2018 when it was that almost that bad. Well, look, but that's why I think Oz or McCormick is very likely to win the general election. Well,
What's the Latest on the Pennsylvania Primary Race?
"Well, David, we have an embarrassment of riches today as far as topics go. I've got this list here. We can go through for an hour, but let's see where we're at. Let's start with Pennsylvania Senate race. David McCormick is a mirror 987 votes behind Doctor Oz and they are still counting. What do you think's going on there? Man, $64,000 question. It's possible that when all the votes are counted and the mcclernand will be on top, even if he's not, and I'd rather be awes of I had to choose at this point. I'd always really rather be the guy in front. Even if I've holds them off, there's going to be a recount because it's going to be triggered under state law. The candidate that's losing at the end of regulation can forgo the recount and just decide to lose. I just don't think that's going to happen here. Of course, the real news here is that the McCormick campaign is suing in state court to compel all 67 counties to count mail in ballots that were received on time and have no other flaw except for there is no gate handwritten on the outside of the envelope as required by state law. Now, they're using a you're the lawyer here, but they're using a decision rendered by the third circuit on Friday that have nothing to do with this election, but at 2021 election at Lehigh county Pennsylvania. It said such balance should be counted

John Solomon: Ministry of Truth Is Weapon of Mass DISTRACTION
"John Solomon, welcome back to the Salem radio network. Good to be with you, Sam. Good, happy Monday. I didn't go to the White House correspondents dinner. I went to the pre party that newsmax through. Were you in the building? I mean, there was only 5000 people in the building. I'm not sure I saw you. Did you go? I didn't go. Now I've long ago tired of these dinners, so I'm much more interested in reporting on the weekends and going to a dinner. I'd rather work. You've got better things to do. And he is seriously one of the hardest working guys out there. Okay, we're going to talk about what you found out. I have it in front of me the latest developments from the Durham special prosecutor investigation. But first, given that you're a journalist who has to sift between fake information and find the real gold, your reaction to the creation of this disinformation governance board. What do you think of this take from the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich cut 5? This is a censorship board. Now, the First Amendment of the constitution says you can't make any law that affects free speech. So Mallorca, who I think should be impeached immediately, and the board should be defunded immediately. Mallorca is essentially explaining that there are going to be break the constitution, exercise censorship, and that's what it is. Censorship, and we're supposed to trust their appointees who are all left wingers to be fair and neutral. This is nonsense. I mean, these people are crazy. And I think we need to understand what they're trying to do is a total violation of the American constitution. Isn't he right, John, that this is I mean, how can they even consider this idea given that the constitution is very clear with regards to government's role? Yeah, I'm not a bridge. The First Amendment, the constitution is correct. It's the government's role not to do that. And listen, I think you said it right. These people are crazy. A lot of the people I talk to this week and have the exact same reaction. And some of them are Democrats saying, I can't believe what they're doing. It's like kamikaze politics. Who came up with this idea? And maybe we can give Putin the Medal of Freedom next week. They were that upset about how stupid this idea is. And then look who they picked, right? A woman who perpetrated first, the Russia collusion hoax, and then argued for the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop, she's wrong on the first two issues where she was mitigating information in the public space, this is a bad idea from start to finish and probably more a weapon of mass distraction than an actual
Why Dinesh D'Souza Came Back Stronger Than Ever After the Obama Era
"A personal question for you dinesh after what happened to you under Obama, the way they persecuted you, the way they prosecuted you, why did you not just disappear quietly and why did you come back more forceful than ever? What is it that drives you to do these kinds of things? Well, I think I used to be in my earlier career a little bit more at the point he had it intellectual who saw American politics as a kind of debate between two groups of people that had different ideas. And I think what happened under Obama in particular, as I was found myself locked up in a confinement center with a bunch of thugs, is I realized, you know, I'm witnessing the gangster of the Democratic Party. And so this has to be responded to in a completely different way than I had imagined before. So it's how to be effective toughening me up, radicalizing me a little bit, making me more brave, I think, rather than more
'2000 Mules' Is Available to the Public... What's Next?
"Dinesh, it's clear that anybody who wants the truth will get it with this film. They will see hundreds of thousands of illegally collected ballots that were harvested in states where that is a crime such as Georgia. Here's the big question for you as somebody who isn't just an academic or a documentarian, but you're a political actor you live in the real world. What happens next? I think this is a real vaccine. It's an antidote for those who think it's all conspiracy theories, nothing really happened. It was a fair election. Okay, this movie comes out. You say the mainstream media will be there at Mar-a-Lago for the premier this week. What happens after that dinesh? Well, the good question is what will happen and what should happen. Now, what should happen is pretty obvious. Somebody needs to arrest the mules. Let's remember that through the vote has the cell phone IDs of these 2000 plus meals. They don't have their names, but law enforcement all the time, and take a cell phone ID, get a warrant, go to the cell phone provider, find out who these people are. And then, of course, who paid you who put you up to this, who organized this operation, remember some of these stash houses, the votes houses where the mules get their ballots. They don't come up with their own ballots. They go get them. Are from 501c3 nonprofit organizations that are strictly forbidden from getting involved in this kind of electioneering. They're not allowed to intervene on behalf of any party or candidate. They can generic say, hey, people get out and vote, but they can't intervene on behalf of the Democrats or try to drag Joe Biden across the finish line. So there's just a lot of unlawful activity going on here. All of it organized by the left and the Democrats. But of course, the big question is, will somebody bust it?
Dinesh D'Souza's Reaction to the 'Ministry of Truth'
"Have given what you went through the persecution, the literal political persecution you went through under the Obama administration. Your reaction to the fact that the United States of America that defeated both the Nazis and the Soviet Union now has a minister for truth now has the government disinformation board, your reaction as a legal immigrant to the United States like me danesh. Well, I mean, who would have thought that some of the very features that the market and defined authoritarian and totalitarian regimes are now a normal part of life in Biden's America. The use of the deep state to go after political opponents, the shutting down and censoring and restriction of free speech. The urging of children to sort of speak out against their parents indoctrination in schools even at the very young level, the attack from the family, the church, all of this is, I think, very startling and makes it much more difficult for us to use the old language of the free world against the authoritarians. We got plenty of authoritarians now in this country.
Eric Celebrates 7 Years of the Eric Metaxas Show
"Eric related, congratulations on the 7th anniversary of your radio show. I'm proud to say I've been a faithful listener the entire time. How many more years of listening to the show about everything will it take before I know everything? I'm not getting any younger here, you know, Kurt Schmidt sent that in. Now, Kurt Schmidt is one of the, he's a classic longtime listener. And you know, because I haven't done radio before, there are these people that they listen to the show from the beginning and they become like Friends. I bumped into Kurt around the country, just a really sweet guy. And the answer to your question, Kurt, is I think another year, and then you'll know everything. I think in 6 months, I will know everything. And then I'll try to pass that on to you. But usually it takes roughly a year from now, I think, 8 years. But it is funny because we do, since YouTube wiped us out, you can't see most of the stuff that we did before. But we have interviewed so many different kinds of people on so many different subjects. I interviewed a man who was he a 104 years old when I spoke to him on the phone. He had, he was telling me about his two great grandfathers, both of whom had fought in the Civil War and how he knew them as a boy, and he's saying one fought on the union side one foot on the confederate side. I have interviewed so many people. I mean, here I am talking to a guy who knew people who fought on both sides in the Civil War. I've introduced I have interviewed astronauts, we got to speak to president Trump on this program. I have interviewed tons of comedians from rich little to Jimmy JJ walker, actors, Morgan Freeman. I mean, it's kind of crazy when you look back on 7 years.
Can Republicans Take the Senate in November?
"Well, senator Rick Scott, you know, let's move on to a happier subject. What we're going to be able to do about this because I think we're taking back the Senate in November. Can you give the Hugh Hewitt radio program audience a preview of how you think next November is going to go? Here is where we are. We should be able to defend all we have. We have 21 Republicans up. We should be able to defend all those. Now, someone will be harder. We've added to Pennsylvania. We've got to defend North Carolina. We've got to defend probably the hardest of an incumbent is Ron Johnson and Wisconsin. But if you look at the quality of our candidates in the primaries, we got a lot of primaries that will come up in the next 30 days. We got great people in our primaries. We've done great incumbents running. So we just have to bust our butt every day. It's how you win races. I'm in a 50 50 state. You work every day and gosh, you have success. And where we have our pickup opportunities is one in Georgia. Is the Doug Jones of this cycle. A 100% what Biden Schumer and Bernie Sanders. And so we've got two we've got three good people in the primary. One of them is going to win right now, Herschel Walker's way ahead. We should be able to win there if we run good race.
Texas National Guard Soldier Loses Life Rescuing Illegal Immigrants
"A veteran yourself, I think you've got to be as angry and heartbroken as I am over the death of specialist bishop Evans of the Texas army National Guard, who gave his life trying to rescue illegal aliens who should not have been there. Oh no, it makes you mad. I'm so angry. Here's the way I look at it. When you join the service, you went to defend this country to defend our constitution. Why would our commander in chief put our arms service at risk, whether it's on our border, which we didn't have to do, or with those stupid withdrawal from Afghanistan, which we didn't have to do that way, which where we lost 13 people. No, it makes you mad because you expect your commander in chief to actually responsibly. Well, put you in harm's
Fightting the Threat of Open Borders, and Title 42
"Right now, what can we do to fight this open border policy? The best thing that we can do right now is to make certain that first of all, people are contacting their local state and federal elected officials. And the reason that is important is because right now with all of the drug dealers the cartels, the human traffickers, the gangs, what you have is a situation where every town is a border town in every state is a border state. And when your local and state officials are putting pressure on Democrat members of Congress and on this administration, it will help us to keep a title 42 in place.
Elon Musk, Twitter, and Free Speech
"The thing that really gets me is this had to be done because so much of our ruling class has revealed itself as being aggressively anti free speech. And that's. Even a year ago. People would have been ashamed saying, you know what? We've got a sense or other people's speech. We can't let people talk freely because of misinformation or hate speech. I think it's very alarming development. Well, I do too. Listen, I am not just a fan of the Second Amendment. I'm a fan of the first movement as well. And I've been troubled that what we've seen over the past few years. And I think it really is, we could talk about cancel culture, but it goes beyond that. I mean, we really are talking about the weaponization of conformity. And if you have an unconventional or non conformance opinion on Twitter, the powers that be are going to do everything that they can to marginalize you at best, but to silence you at
Biden's Ineptitude With Russia Could lead to the Fall of Taiwan
"I want you to put your Kevlar on for a second. And let's talk a little about Taiwan. On which you are you're an expert on. You know what? I'm very concerned about Taiwan right now because of Biden's complete failure of being able to deter Russia from invading Ukraine. And of course, the fiasco of the Afghanistan pull out. And you add those together and you look at the Biden administration steadfast inability to make good decisions in a timely fashion. And the Chinese Communist Party might think that perhaps now is a good time to go.
Can Ron DeSantis Overcome the 2024 Trump Train?
"I want to see Godzilla fight camera. I want to see a primary involving Donald Trump if he chooses to run. And Ron DeSantis and any of the other conservative kaiju who decide that they want to get on monster island and battle it out. What do you think of that? Do you think a look, not that you're necessarily for or against any particular guy, but don't you agree that a primary will sharpen and hone whoever is going to go up against whatever meat puppet they put up in place of grandpa badfinger in 2024. Absolutely. No, I think the worst case scenario is that Trump says, I'm reading people and all the other Republicans say, okay, I can't beat them. I'm out. I don't think I don't think desantis can. I think this is desantis time, and I think he, I think he's got to do it if he's ever going to do it. And boy, he's making, he's making quite a splash.

Why Is the Biden Administration Soft on Iran?
"Well, Michael Doran, why? We're in the catbird seat. We have the military power. We have the economic power. We have the diplomatic power. We have the information power. We should be dictating to these mullahs. Who incidentally have already killed many hundreds of Americans in Iraq. And have not had payback. Why are we playing footsies with these guys at all? I don't understand it. There's two reasons. They have a foreign policy theory. And the foreign policy theory is that it's our allies, Israel and Saudi Arabia that are throwing us into conflict with Iran that in objective terms the United States and Iran don't have that much to quarrel about. And so if we can, if we can restrain the allies and then just start negotiating with the Iranians directly over the heads of the allies, that's the way to stabilize the Middle East.

We'll move on kurt if you don't remember that one we'll talk about all which i'm sure you do. It's from providence. You cut what. Dave meltzer 'cause as the time your best promo on how your nancy kerrigan triple h tonya harding. And you kinda turn triple h baby face. Was there ever talk of you. And stephanie sang together against a baby face. Triple h what about that. You and stephanie. Staying together was that ever considered. I think it would have been an awesome idea. I don't know if anybody put that fire out or why it didn't curb it. I think it should have an could have the. I think i honestly believe that. The storyline could have been one of the hottest storylines ever in the history of the business. If we continued on. Especially if outta pair with stephanie. 'cause you know stuff being in triple for the real deal. They had a real relationship. And you know To to have that type of heat that i would have from. It would be incredible olympic hero. Kurt angle we ever have trouble picking the perfect gift that would make so go. Wow that's gifts create unbelievable experiences for those. You live and memories that last a lifetime. so i'm excited to announce cameo as a new sponsor show. I fans use cameo for all kinds of shoutouts roasts. Thank you messages. Congratulates meal provides the kind of real fan connection. Used to only be able to get from a once in a lifetime. Chance counter backstage passes out a show.

Whichever star you choose said you back a personalized video while the ones you love so just by gift make you. Candy go to cameo dot com. Oh it's true. It's damn true. So as you're working with stephanie and i'm sure you guys Camera goes off working with each other. You interpolate sean. This whole angle. What was it like kinda behind the scenes to work together through these soap. Opera type storylines. Were you having fun with it. You know or was it just like this is painful we gotta get through. This was that like a little bit of both of the times. I had to get into with stephanie bus. Triple h you know it. It just was a little bit crazy. But i enjoyed it You know got a little uncomfortable at times. But for the most part i really liked it was a lot of fun. We at ad free shows this month. You and i were going to do the bonus episode watch long of the smackdown where you Give stephanie the lip. Lock not the ankle lock but one of your other major moves there So we're gonna do that as a watch along. I'm looking forward to that. But i get it right. We we talk about that. It's entertainment but still you're getting put in the kind of weird positions here especially when triple h is in san and too far away right. Oh without a doubt it. It does become uncomfortable because you know that they're having. I don't even know if they were married at this particular time where they. I don't think they were yet eating. They were still dating. I think engaged a little bit after that but they were a real item. Yeah you get involved in that. It's it's a little nerve wracking. I'm sure it's like well. I'll just take direction from you and whatever you say here i'll just follow whatever you say and we'll do that and call it a day off. Just deal with. Vincent van told me that's right and you can't go wrong there. Kurt and you know vince. He's going to have on a push. It all. go go for dig end of all people. Vince mcmahon would yeah. We'll speaking events he makes a special appearance and pulls you in triple h into a limo and you both have to get along for the main event. Which is you triple. H ann shane. Taking on the rock. And the dudley's. It's a big deal. When vince makes an appearance on television is it not yes. He wasn't making much appearances back. Then at that particular time so if you if you he was involved in your storyline or if you didn't appearance it had to mean a heck of a lot and that that's why he did it and i it was it. Was you know it was a privilege. That vince mcmahon got involved in this. Because you know you know that you're you're you're doing the top storyline on. Tv events is involved. You're into top story on absolutely have stephanie. Involved now you get the vince rob and you're right. I mean after that attitude. You know the stone cold versus vince and all that played out he was starting to take a break from being a character on tv all the time so absolutely he jumps in and so that's always adds dramatic effect to an angle we move onto heat. Yes that was a television show you. Everyone probably remembers in. It's a taping here with matt hardy. And what was an excellent match with stephanie. Hoping you and raising your hand after again the soap opera elements added. This really brings out another dimension in your character. You mentioned it before. Kurt wouldn't you agree. This was really what kind of brought all that out in you. Yes i it really enhanced. My character made me more sinister. May not as much as goofball but like a an evil kind of person that's getting in the head of triple h and You know manipulating the whole situation using stephanie. As much as. I could to get what i wanted. Which was the world title eventually so i. It was a really cool story line. It did a lot of good for me. Who are now as you're getting into this. Kurt is this just you. Are you working with the words as you said as far as the whole acting side of this this is still like you said that you're trying to figure your way out through this. What does it look like behind the scenes in terms of rehearsal and making sure that you're delivering those dramatic scenes. The way that you kind of want to you just had to do it. He didn't have time for a hersal. We would talk about it and then we would just do it and you know the the the sports entertainment industry is a lot different than the acting in street. You have to be on for the. I take you know right. Oh it's part so You know there are times when we do pre-tape and we have to a few of them over and over again but for.

So i wanted to have the same atmosphere while i was training so i trained in quiet and it got me ready for competition was gonna be and i've done that my whole entire life after work.

So i kindly obliged i dropped bag and i started signing autographs and a fan grabbed the bag and ran and i freaked out and i said holy shit. My gold medal was in that bag. I need it back. Thank god one of the kids that stole it. The kid stored one of the kids. That was there was his friend. He called his friends. Let's bring back is gold medals in there. It's not just merchandiser or t-shirts. It's the gold medal. So the fan brought back very grateful. I didn't ask mattie questions in do anything to them. I was just grateful to get it back.

She's still technically under contracts until the end of november but they don't expect she'll be back on tv and this is kind of a hard pill to swallow here in two thousand one just a couple of years prior to this. She was one of the hottest talents in the whole company. Now just a female talent. But one of the hottest talents and of course famously she Beat jeff jarrett on his way out the door and became the first female intercontinental champion which is a big dog on deal.

He started out a few months in the training tours. ten in office elbow tendon runs down your arm the back of your arm and he had to have surgery for and he opted to have it and he was going to be three months and he got an infection from the surgery and had to have another surgery. The crazy thing is the infection because they waited so long the tendon eight away halfway up his arm so there was only half the tended. The doctor had to do a new procedure where they made the tendon half as wide and twice as long so they cut it down the middle and brought it down. so it'd be twice as long connected. Elbow of course his wrestling career was over right. And the crazy thing is the hospital and the doctor should have been liable. Art are for other losses wrestling career. Probably millions of dollars that he would have made and Nothing nothing occurred from it because the hospital. Dr protected their own acids. Wow hey folks that your olympic hero.

"While john you know he always did some crazy stuff you know and we always thought it was for attention. We didn't think it was anything else was the fact that he loved debuts infatuated by dave and he he was he was vying for attention. He was trying to grab the attention away from dave. It was shocking. Because you know. John never attempted to kill anybody before. I mean he did some crazy stuff. Nothing too crazy not not to the point where we thought he was threatening. Someone's life but you know. John would do crazy stuff just for attention. I think that's all all was four. We didn't know that he would not go to that length. Kill dave and you ever had discussions with dave about the fact that john would snort cocaine and carry a pistol around and he think it was a he's weird. He's eccentric but he's harmless. Is that always where it came back to or was there a a threat of violence like man. I don't know this could get weird or dangerous. It was more guess what he did today. Yeah know like jokingly he today he this is what he did he took a. You gotta tank bought a tank and wrote on his farm and started running overall his barnes and buildings on his farm you know or he would The the the president of feel was visiting fox catcher. He's the president of the world governing body of amateur wrestling as guys very powerful big name. John d. palm put in his car and drove him down a hill and went straight into a lake and hit. The the guy would have died. If john john was an excellent swimmer so john got him out of the car and running back to the shore You know the president feel was really pissed when he can win. Do our facility. It was like john's new in this crazy stuff again. You know just. We just thought he was doing for attention. Didn't know that he was mentally ill or you know that he was crazy. We really didn't know that because we knew nothing about mental illness back in right. I mean you either crazy or you weren't and you know it was. It was cut cut dry but cut and dry but you know john definitely had some former battle notice. I'm fascinated by the story. You just told he's gonna bring the head of amateur wrestling the governing body of wrestling and it's a big honor to have that guy come near facility. I mean it's got to be something where everybody's getting ready. Okay let's make sure the facilities clean and everybody have your shit on and all that type of stuff and instead we drive the dude in the lake. Do you think he did that just because he wanted to. Position himself has. Oh i save this guy's life. Maybe he wanted to have a hero moment. I think perhaps because like. I said he did a lot of stuff for attention. Yeah if there was getting the attention as a matter of fact the world governing body of feeling the president when he walked in our facility. He walked up to date i before john. I mean. I know that that really hurt john's feelings and you know i think john just had a jealousy because he wished he was dave. He couldn't be so he was doing everything he could to say here. I am look at me. No don't look a day. If i'm here i'm i'm i'm the you know the head of the club and i'm writing it not day so i think that had a lot to do with the relationship was very close and dave new honda com john down and control them. But you know the day of his death was just too late. You know. it's it's funny that you say you know. Even just the introduction. That he that he wasn't i bothered him. I kept thinking as you're describing this story. These days on social media people call it cloud. Kurt you're in the loop on that but it feels as if dupont felt weicker hoped he could buy the clout that they've had in the wrestling community. Of course david earned it through blood sweat and tears and competition and maybe dupont thought. I can't do that. Maybe i can write a check and and by the cloud that dave has and that proved to not be as easy as it was. You're right and john got a lot of credibility by starting the rest of the club and you know he got a lot of respect from a lot of people. But it wasn't the respected dave earned and i think john was trying to make up for that he wanted to be dave and he wanted to have the same respect. Dave had and unfortunately he didn't. There are a lot of recipes that fear job because they wanna get fired by them. You know they were. He was our boss. But you know as far as respect you know. Dave had the utmost respect that everybody is it true. I saw in my research. That dupont didn't do this. I'm gonna drive my car in the lake stunt once he did it twice in four days. I heard i wasn't there the other time but i was told that he did it twice. The second time was with the world governing body of feel resident. And i want to circle back to something you just sorta glossed over because it feels like a make believe story. I certainly believe you saying. This is the craziest thing i've ever heard. The dude had a tank and ran over his own shit. Hey thank god. He didn't use the gun on the tank. You gonna blow up his mansion. Some believe he just he he he bought a tank. And i'm not sure where he got Obviously has a lot of contacts could probably get whatever he wanted and he wrote on his farm and was knocking over buildings and barns and you know just trying to destroy whatever he could he just felt like doing it that day he was like. I'm john dupont. This one. i'm going to do today to kill time. And i think he just had a lot of time on his hands. We had a lot of money and he didn't know what to do with either. One of them was would you. Would you categorize john as paranoid. Yes he was definitely paranoid. I think the drugs had a lot to do with that. Yeah is like. I said when he was sniff coke and came downstairs. You got really paranoid. You gotta leave man You know I i found something downstairs. You can have to leave and you know he was. He thought that you know he wanted the rest of the going. That tunnel that six hundred yard tunnel because he thought somebody was coming after him so he was delusional to a point. And i think the drugs have a lot to do with it. Was there any pressure you know. We'll call it peer pressure. But that's not really the right term here. But i know you guys are all elite athletes training there but if he wants to be like you guys he might want you to be like him. Is he ever pressuring goss to do cocaine as far as you recall. No john did that in his own. Privacy didn't want anybody to nobody. I say i imagine he had some problems in the past. You also had some problems with alcohol and I'm sure that he was trying to hide both of those. If he was still drinking. I i didn't think he was still drinking but i think he switched to drugs to cocaine. And i'm sure that That you know that had a lot to do with it. Allegedly four days before the murder john fell down in his house and manages to knock himself out but when he comes to he has reportedly convinced himself that one of his wrestlers had hit him in the back of the head with a bat and he goes looking for the wrestler threatening various guys and even throwing some off the farm. Did you hear of.

It's weird because it feels like depending on you know which piece of media you select to hear this story. mark is not included. In fact. I don't even think he's in the netflix documentary. Any speculation while they don't discuss the mark piece of the story at all. I'm not sure who did the documentary if it was the show's family that did it. I'm sure mark would have been involved in the documentary. I'm not sure if this came from dupont. Side or or a you know. Production company that You know in contact the showtime. They just to do the documentary. I don't know but for mark not to be part of the documentary about his brother. Dave is really unheard of. I'm not sure why it didn't happen. So apparently dupont had his sights set. Not only on mark. But on on david to and david had been coaching as an assistant coach at the university of oklahoma he'd also and even at the university of wisconsin madison. But eventually he goes from helping with the dupont program to actually moving to pennsylvania To help run a new training centre. That john dupont had constructed. And of course this is the famous foxcatcher facility. When did you first hear about fox. Catcher and then everybody was going to pennsylvania while when dave joined That was the first time i heard about it was it was in the wrestling newspapers. You know team fox just started. John dupont started club. A shot is one of the coaches. It's going to be premier wrestling club. All the best restaurants in the world will be part of it and It was a lot of news in the amateur wrestling street. So john dupont. Started a lot of buzz in amateur wrestling. This was a great opportunity for everyone that could join that club. It would be very beneficial on their careers. You know i'm going to veer into a territory here. That's a little weird to say out loud but just humor me in wrestling snot polite term but in wrestling these days. I guess forever guys have said. Oh you gotta go see so. And so there's money in their heels. That guy's a money. Mark john dupont was an amateur money. Mark right yes. I mean on dupont. He he wanted to be involved in wrestling when his mother was still alive but she wouldn't allow him to And when she asked the way is when john started the club so he actually waited for his mother passed away before he started but he wanted to have a club he was a big mark for amateur wrestling. He was a mark for sports. I mean john had other clubs. He had a swimming club at a pentathlon club on wrestling club. state of the art facilities right on the farm whereas mansion was it was incredible. You're from pennsylvania so when there is a an eccentric person like this in the area it feels like people would talk. Did you ever. Do you remember hearing anything about the dupont family. Good or bad before. You actually became acquainted with the foxcatcher concept. I just knew that the pod family was the family that you know you know in it or invented gunpowder for the civil war. They basically so that. That's how the name became really big and Dupont de pont chemical is depart foods. you know there's just so many it's just a popular name and johnson descended of that and You know knowing that you know that. John has a great deal of money and he contributed a lot of money to wrestle. Yeah a great deal of money is right. It's estimated at the time he was worth at least two hundred million dollars and Here's how variety described the relationship with john. And dave dupont was a lonely socially inept prance desperate to be embraced by his tough world class athletes as quote unquote one of them and dave sympathetic to the man strangeness and dependent on him for support for not only himself but his wife kids and the athletes he recruited on dupont's behalf was his favourite an open hearted bear of a man who not only embodied the athletic greatness to himself coveted but humored. The wealthy philanthropist joan wrestling dreams going so far as to coach him and competitions for which as all videos expose he was thoroughly unfit. Can you speak to that. Do you think this is a fair assessment of dupont. That he was lonely and socially inept and really wanted to be one of the boys. I think so i mean jonah didn't have a lot of friends and i think that him reaching out to the amateur wrestling community to swing community. The community was for him. The partaken other people. John was a loner. You know he lived on his mansion in his mansion is farm and didn't have a lot of contact with a lot of people and he was very private and So i could imagine that john was alone man. That's probably why he started his clubs. Is it true that they did like this I guess a fake tournament where guys would come in and quote unquote do the job for john dupont to.

"This angle. Welcome villacorta angles show. We have an excellent show planned for you today. We'll be covering the death of my friend mentor. And coach dave schultz and the impact he had on my amateur wrestling career. We will also be covering team. Fox catcher a i i would like to introduce all of you my co host known as the mortgage maestro. Conrad thomson conrad. I'm good date. I'm excited to be here with you. I have Really wanted to sort of take your brain about this topic. Because i'm always interested in folks sort of origin stories and i think i've read before that you didn't think you would be nearly as successful. Had you not met david along the way right. Oh without a doubt. They've had a lot to do. I successfully my amateur wrestling career. I met him back in geez. Thousand nine hundred ninety eight. I think i was a freshman in college. I just wanted the s baugh national championships as the under twenty years of age national championships. You have to be a teenager to compete in it. So we were. I qualify for the world championships. We had a training camp in northwestern. University was one of the celebrity Technicians and we hit it off right away and we got along very well. He saw something in me that nobody else saw. And because i qualify for the world team i also qualified to go the usa wrestling olympic camps. So i would see day. They're quite a bit and he worked with you. Know on the technique with me and teach me a lot of stuff. it was an incredible instructor. I think a lot of our listeners. Probably only know of his story from the You know the espn thirty for thirty or the netflix documentary or the the twenty fourteen film about fox catcher and i feel like more of that was probably focused on dupont. Then the david. I want to me talk about david bit. Tell us about who he was. the man. The person the wrestler the the amateur wrestler. And i guess we should also mention because we have obviously only wrestling fans listening to this but primarily pro wrestling. We're not talking about dr d. The guy who slapped john docile. We're talking about the olympic bad ass. Right yes. Dave was incredible wrestler. He was one of the absolute best of all time. It was a very happily married man. Proud father rate. Dad do as kids and great brother to mark. He was just a an incredible human being. That was always positive. Ever looked at anything from a negative light was always positive. The always wanted to learn. That's one thing about dave. He told me this he said you can never stop learning. And he didn't alert eight different languages from all over the world so he can learn technician technique from all the best wrestlers in the world from different countries. That's how complex day was he master technique and he was the best at it. I want to briefly talk about some of his amateur accomplishments. Of course i think he won the california state athletic champ or the california state championship like to way classes higher than is normal division and had what. I've read to be the most successful senior year in high school wrestling history in america. What made his high school senior year. So special stand out well. Dave didn't start wrestling till eighth grade. Wow have a lot of experience. He is senior in high school. He was only in fifth year wrestling and to dominate two classes above and pin everybody in the tournament until the finals. I think he won twelve the one finals. That's a hugely dominant. You know senior year and not only that. He competed in tournaments. he would go where. Ncwa champions were in a former olympians were and he would beat these guys school. That's how good he was he just and he just kept getting better after i've read that He becomes a three-time. Ncwa all american. I at oklahoma state and in twice at the university of oklahoma. Did you ever talk to are about david. Was he on his radar. Oh yeah. Jr was a big fan of shots. I mean he did go to oklahoma and jr loves oklahoma but Yeah jr talked very highly of them i think. Jr met him once early in the early nineties and He said that day was a great guy and he was. He was the absolute best. Yeah how about this for a record when he's at oklahoma state university he's Thirty four and then at the university of oklahoma. He's sixty one in four so his collegiate record is ninety one eight. This is like a real life goldberg reichert. Without a doubt he was goldberg. He was so dominant. And what made him dominant was he always learn new techniques and he he he used His strength was not weightlifting strength. It was really strong. Like wiry strength. Like old man's strength as you because he never lifted weights in. The guy was so damn strong. When i i wrestled him. The first time i did i was two hundred. Twenty pounds and day was about one hundred sixty eight so i weighed about fifty pounds heavier than him and he beat the crap out of me. I mean he used experience in technique in you know leverage. He's very good at lavish. That's what made him so strong but he would grab your arm and you feel like he going to rip it off if he clinched you in a gut wrench. You're gonna knock the wind out of you. He was just the strongest guy. I've ever wrestled especially at that way class. Are you paying attention to What's happening on the national stage. I know you're like In eighty seven. I think you're senior winning state wrestling championships yourself. He won a world championship internationally. Eighty-three hey wins a gold medal and eighty four and the olympics. Are you keeping up with all of that as a young man yes. I was wrestling at the time i was. I think i was in eighth. Grade and dave and mark schultz were my idols. They were the guys that i started watching film and wanting to be portray them exactly like them them in the bannock brothers bruce. Baumgartner randy lewis. There are a lot of great Athletes on that olympic team. A it was the most successful olympic team we had of course. It wasn't a fully contested olympics. Some countries then participate that year but it was the most dominant year we've ever had and the shoulder brothers were number one on. My list is my idols again. I don't know nearly enough about their story. I only know what i've seen in the movie and all that stuff but it almost feels as if they present the story as if there was some maybe competitive friction between the brothers david mark. Would you agree with that nothing. That brothers don't normally do. I mean they would bicker and argue but it wouldn't be anything big but you know they were brothers in asia. They competed train together. And you know they were together all the time but i think that the documentary painted a picture that they wanted to show more drama between the two but no dave absolutely love mark and he always took care of them and they were very close. There was no problem between the two. When did you first meet these.
