I did not purchase EVS yearbook. And I was unaware of what was on my page when I was confronted with the images yesterday. I was appalled that they appeared on my page. But I believe then. And now that I am not either of the people in that photo the governor claiming that he got caught up in the moment making a rush judgment. When the medical yearbook photo was revealed sending out an apology in taking responsibility before he claims he could closely examine the photo. I conceded that based on the evidence presented to me at the time. The most likely explanation that it was indeed me in the photo. He now says it was a mistake suggesting the pitcher. Was on the wrong yearbook page. I have also had a classmate who I discussed this with this morning. We talked about this situation.

Adding he would remember it because he had worn shoe polish in a dance contest in nineteen Eighty-four dressing up as Michael Jackson, my belief that I did not wear that costume or attend that party stems in part from my clear memory of other mistakes. I made in the same period of my life. That same year. I did participate in dance contest in San Antonio in which I dark and my face as part of a Michael Jackson costume. I look back now and regret that I did not understand the harmful legacy of an action. Like that he continued with this anecdote about that night. I had the shoes I had a glove, and I used just a little bit of shoe polish to put under my all, my cheeks, and the reason I used a very little bit is because I don't know if anybody's ever tried that, but you cannot get shoe polish off this stunning forty minute press conference turned bizarre at times at one point two reporter asking north him.

Reporting from West Palm Beach tonight, President Trump on the golf course in Florida today. Side by side with Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus. His first trip tomorrow Lago since before the shutdown, but with just fourteen days until the short term funding. Bill runs out the battle over the border continues as Trump faces growing opposition from within his own party against a clarion national emergency to build a border wall. Actually, having a national emergency does help the process. I think there's a good chance it we'll have to do that a White House officials only ABC news. The president is aware that Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is against using emergency powers to bypass congress up or whatever works, which means a boarding shutdown and avoiding the president feeling he should declare a national emergency. The Washington Post reporting that McConnell told Trump and a private meeting that congress might pass a resolution disapproving of any decision declare national emergency and that could force the president to use his veto power for the first time driving a wedge between the president and his party. I think that this would be viewed as an expansion executive. Already that we just don't want to go down that road. A bipartisan group of lawmakers is now working to meet Trump's demand for funding wall along the southern border. The president is not optimistic. We will be looking at a national emergency.

In those Capitol Hill negotiations on border security. Tom. That's right.

In history collapses, Russian President, Vladimir Putin has promised that Russia is developing new intermediate range weapons in response to the US. Putin is getting cake and eat it too because he's able to deploy missiles that now threatened NATO but claim that it's the US that is withdrawn from the treaty. The move could embolden Russia to further test an array of weapons that. Straight out of a bond villains playbook, including this the Poseidon underwater nuclear power drone, a device that if successful would literally create soon nominees. Russia's announcement comes just one day after the US said it will withdraw from the IMF treaty. One side has not been hearing to it. We have one side hasn't. So unless they go adhere, we should be the only one Putin says he's only following America's lead. But for years Russia has been threatening to withdraw from the landmark nineteen eighty-seven treaty signed by president Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, Tom the withdrawal is being criticized by the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee.

Here's Lana Zak from pink houses to private jets please. Manny Mos art is an Instagram irs. Dream you search for the most famous artist on Google there among Kalo Picasso. Oh and more halt. You'll find this guy that's a key takeaway is that the Internet isn't real surprise the most famous artist so you've never heard of the most famous artist. The most famous artist is an idea anyone that believes the most famous artists as the most famous artist. That's not true it is the whole idea that you can be whatever you think you can be. I'm so one one day a few years ago I decided I wanted to try. That'd be the most famous artists and became it. How did YOU SELFIE friendly murals and headline worthy projects? He's also perfected search engine optimization Shen by giving himself the most famous artist moniker back in two thousand and four. What kind of EGO does one have to have to call themselves the most famous artist? Ironically I'm trying to approach life with a lot less ego. He takes us behind the scenes in his studio to reveal that the most famous famous artist isn't just one person is being architecture masters. But it's actually kind of art. Collective jet take one of his collaborators is best known for creating the Hollywood sign I actually thought it was a joke or a hoax or maybe a promotion for movie. All the way I'd be able to know. Oh I see for myself eventually. Charged for trespassing. He now has his own cannabis line. So you just lost this. We grant in an era when social media moments dominate headlines Mandy most proudly created hours. I'm going to try and pin down this though okay. Do you think you're a good artist. A great artist or you just an artist of this option will. I don't quite where this quotas from but I say it all the time which is and a good artist is someone who uses the tools of their time to tell the stories of their time and conceptualize it in Our Past and so in that context. I'm a great artist. I'm using the Internet. which is the tool of time to tell the story of Selfie culture and I'm studying pass artists to understand how my work fits in whether or not the art market is ready for? That is a different question. Part part performance artists part businessman Manny Moe reacts to the Changing Cultural Landscape around. All of us need to do this. We followed followed him to the streets of melrose the epicenter of Instagram -able moments reflecting twenty four hours almost just to capture the famous pink wall in La. I'd I'd estimate one hundred thousand a year pick wall. There's nothing special amount. It's a pink wall exactly but it's a pink wall that people people used to construct an identity instagram so there's something special. He unabashedly capitalizes on a generation selfie. Obsessed at one point deciding if someone someone else's pink wall creates this much buzz he'll turn an entire block pink hordes of people taking southeast decided on it and it became a major headline the around the world and that helped me become the most famous artist. Do you see our obsessions with cell fees and creating this facade. aww This this idealized life that we're living Instead of being in the moment is that a problem. It's not a problem like world hunger. It's silly ended twist. He claims his work actually fights against the most damaging part of Sophie culture the fear of missing out foam was brought about by an individual representing sunning themselves at a time and place that is unattainable for others and democratizing access to those types of experiences that individuals are using to create foam. Hello is a fun mission. Seem like you're having a lot of fun. I'm glad you can tell to one of his more. Recent and participatory projects making the private jet experience available to those of us who can't jump on her own plane to a private island. I'm using it as a platform to express myself creatively. The NFL happened to make a lot of money. Doing it not going to be mad. This is Matt. He's world can I touch them. Is next collaboration. The world of fruit route. which like the Museum of Ice Cream Candy Topa and the color factory draws fans in for the sake of experiential photo-ops? Uh Not everyone is a fan of manny. Mos- approach to art art dealer Stefan Simcoe as calls Manny Moe an interesting person who makes garbage art. He reflects it's tragic problems. The pity and venality of selfie culture the fact that the functions as a prop. It's almost like drinking orange juice. That is is yellow and sweet but isn't made from oranges. It's just sugar and colored water made to taste with some preservative like orange juice devoid of any substance and this is a fundamental problem in culture today. So matty moe this is the banality of culture that exists today. The work is terrible. Famous artist doesn't fully disagree. Will the definition of artist by the art world is definitely not one life into the art world. Wouldn't call me an artist because they didn't go to art school and I'm not represented by galleries and I don't show at art fairs actually using being the Internet and the Democratic Affect Software to distribute my work. I love this and he knows the greatest distribution of his work takes place when we pick up our phones this this is the most analytical. I think anyone has ever been a selfie. We're self scientists. Did you just make up right now. I think so. Good the illusionist holding up a mirror to ourselves and a time of changing Nice Doc.

Wednesday, October 24: "There's no proof of anything"
"It's Wednesday, October, twenty four. Some call it a caravan. Some Republicans are calling it a gift. We start here. Won't be at the US border by the midterms, but that caravan in Mexico could still reshape congress dance a powerful tool for the Republicans. We will take you to resign with the conversation swung back to what the president considers a sweet spot. The Saudis got the benefit of the doubt until now cover up was one of the worst in the history of covering the US changes its tune, but is that enough to change anything else? And the nuclear deal that kept Americans and Russians safe for decades is going by the real concern amongst a lot of people's that mood in a new arms race, how we got here and why it matters going. From ABC news. This is start here. I'm Brad milkey. The heat is incredibly debilitating. Mexican police haven't really slowed wis group down, but certainly a heat has. No yesterday we spoke to our chief national correspondent Matt gut man who's been walking among this caravan of migrants in Mexico. Thousand-strong in later he emailed us to make another point. He said he, he can't even hear this on the podcast, but it's the smell thousands of people almost no bathrooms. Blistering heat, you get it. People are masking. Their faces in that, of course, is not the biggest hazard. It's the heat. People are passing out those too weak to walk are falling off vehicles. This is how desperate many of these people are. They've got more than a thousand miles to go to many communities here in the states, though these people feel a lot closer both to people who want to help them out and those who want to keep them out as he rallies Republican voters. Over the final sprint to election day President Trump is making false claims. When talking about that. Van of migrants in Mexico. And as we move ever closer to the mid terms, they are now less than two weeks away that migrant caravan has become a full-fledged campaign issue. The Democrats had something to do with it, and now they're saying, I think we made a big mistake because people are seeing how bad it is, how pathetic it is ABC's Lana Zak is on the ground in the border battleground of Arizona. Right now. She's been talking to voters and Solana is this migrant caravan? I mean, I've heard Republicans say this, this is a gift to them. Is that how Republicans on the ground there are seeing it Sherry know in might actually make the difference in this neck and neck Senate race out here in Arizona for the Republicans in might help keep the seat read in part because the Republican candidate Martha mcsally democrat victory in November, who actually campaigned together with President Trump on Friday, bright flashing invitation to every trafficker smuggler drug dealer and legal. Alien on the planet come on in come on in folks has made the safety and security of this country, a major part of her platform and one of the Republican women that I interviewed yesterday so that when she sees that caravan coming towards the United States, she feels that it is dangerous. And she says that the democrat Kristen cinema, this is her quote, she didn't care if the Taliban came. That's not what what the democrat is actually saying. Well, and let me ask you because I think it's really important. We'd be clear about this. The White House several times suggested there are Middle Eastern terrorists in this group of people. They have not provided any evidence. And then yesterday, President Trump himself admitted. There's no proof of this is no proof of anything, but they could very well be. But multiple officials, including the vice president have said, hey, we intercept ten would be terrorists every day at the southern border. So Lana, I guess, and asking, is this a legitimate fear? There's no evidence that there are any Middle Eastern terrorists among this group, and actually the statistics about warning terrorists at the borders really refers more to to terrorists trying to enter this country via planes rather than a group of migrants as is actually not the ideal way to get in the country. The hundred president did say that there are likely people coming from other countries besides Central America among this group of of people, but it's also worth noting that just because somebody. He comes from the Middle East. It doesn't make them a terrorist and that unfortunately might not matter when you're talking about these attack ads and what permeates into people's minds about the scariness of these dangerous immigrants that that are perceived to becoming from the Middle East from the Taliban we, I heard a woman actually tell me that yesterday when I was interviewing her here in Arizona, that there are very real fears, whether they are grounded in truth or not may affect the outcome of the of the Senate race here in Arizona. But Lana, what you said. I see how this galvanizes people in Arizona. Could this shakeup other races? Well, Arizona's race has become important because it is a bellwether in a lot of ways to what President Trump pass to say. Democrats have invested a lot of money in trying to woo people who are mainstream voters or or even Republican women into. Casting a ballot against President Trump and prior to this caravan. Actually, the biggest issue that I was hearing from people out here when they were talking about immigration policies was a dist- satisfaction with President Trump's policy of separating families that was causing people to turn away from the Republican party a when you look at this in a in a national context, the shift from those that family separation policy being the focus to a focus on a perception of dangerous immigrants coming in and perpetrating crimes and taking American jobs. That's a powerful tool for the Republicans as they're heading into this midterm election, whether you're in Arizona or you're in Iowa. Both definitely heard from voters who say it's just fundamentally wrong that illegal border crossings be tolerated at all, and that feeling can kind of go faster and farther than even this caravan Cam Lana. I know you'll be on the road a lot between now and election day. We will catch you later. Thanks, Brad. Up until now nearly every detail about the death of Jamal kashogi from the Washington Post has come from leaks or rumors floated mainly by Turkish officials. But yesterday Turkey's president, rich up type Erta on, came out himself and laid out his own accusations on the record. Jamaica Shoghi was slain in a vicious violent emerge. He called it savagely planned. They're describing point by point how a team of Saudis arrived in the country, and then how consular officials left shortly after the killing was complete. Then we heard something we had never heard before President Trump in that Oval Office appearance from earlier calling this a cover up. It was carried a poorly and the cover up was one of the worst in the history of coverups. I turned ABC senior foreign correspondent Ian panel right now. He's been in Istanbul and and President Trump is stuck with the Saudis for weeks. Now he does not sound so sure. How is the US responding here yet? Yes, certainly being an avid changing tone, I think this is definitely not what we what we're just hearing. So the second straight, Mike Pompeo and this was a televised statement. He said we have identified at least some of the individuals responsible, including those in the intelligence services, the Royal court, the foreign ministry and other Saudi ministries who we suspect to have been involved in Mr. kashogi death. He says that the United States government is going to take appropriate actions which include revoking visas entering visa lookout and other measures. Now worse stressing the moment. This is just some of the individuals that they think are responsible for the murder. Presumably this is some of the individuals who have already been detained by the Saudi authorities. So what actual impact that will have an intangible action will have to wait and see. But it is important because it's the first time the United States. Government official has stood up and said, we've identified some of those responsible for murdering the Washington Post writer. Well, we say responsible like you had to lay hands on the man to be responsible for this. Are we going to find out who was responsible for actually ordering this? And could that person be the crown prince Mohammad bin Salman Greg question, and that is noteworthy. The moments is there is no attempt to point fingers and say, we believe it was ordered by this person. We know that United States sends especially speaking over the weekend. This guy is a wrecking ball. He had this got murdered an believed that it must have gone much higher. This statement from from Mike Pompeo does not point fingers, any higher nineties. A crucial thing for everyone to look out for. In other words, people may not like the Saudi explanation for Woody going to match if you just punched individuals who've already been identified than there is no real pressure on the Saudi Royal family to come up with a more plausible explanation. And even with all the screen shots of body doubles, we still don't know where kashogi body is or what places. It might be, but Ian is grim is that is I thought the most unsettling image of the day was from Riyadh where you had the Saudi royals doing a photo op with kashogi family. Yeah, that's right. I mean, I find it very chilling, very owning, very kind of straight face, but it looks like the son of Jamal Hushovd Jake, he he's overseen grief, but it also looks like a face affair and we don't know that for certain, but bear in mind. You use the word meat. If you get an invitation from Saudi King and the crown prince there on real options, you will turn up. So we don't know whether they went, willingly would actually summoned to this meeting and he's meeting a man who some people think may well have ordered the murder of his father. Also, we're being told, and again, it's not verified that he son according to Seiichi press, is reportedly under a travel ban because of his father's criticism, which apparently was one of the reasons that was this leash to kidnap loss. If not a murder plot in the first place. So he's got nowhere else to go any exactly nowhere else to go. He has no choice if it king invites him and the crown prince say, we'd like you to come. So we can offer you'll come though is you have no choice. All right. That is ABC's an panel, tracking it all from Istanbul and in a lot behind us already, but still a lot more anxious to uncover. We'll let you feels. Feels more questions still out. Thanks, Brad. Next up on start here. Could we be on our way to a new arms race. I have a dream, but don't know where to begin. I didn't want to be limited looking for wisdom for women who've already been there. You will constantly be given the opportunity to lose yourself. Welcome to ABC's, no limits. I'm your host, Rebecca, Jarvis and each week we're talking to the game, changing women about success lessons learned along the way. And of course, the worst advice I really thought about this worst advice ever. You can hear new episodes of no limits every week on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. The last couple of days President Trump has said he intends to end a major nuclear arms agreement with Russia. Well, yesterday his national security adviser, John Bolton went to Moscow and told Vladimir Putin. The news himself, Fred is not American withdrawal from the tree, a threat for the Russian missed. The threat is the Russian missiles already yell, the press conference afterward. And so let's bring in ABC news, foreign editor, cure Roddy, execute you lived and worked in Moscow for a few years for three years. So can we back up a bit then what is this nuclear arms treaty? Like? Why's it important? This is a treaty that goes back over thirty years. It goes back to the eighties and it was meant to defuse a crisis between the Soviet Union and the United States over the deployment of what are called intermediate range, nuclear weapons that were being deployed in parts of Europe and the Soviet Union deployed. One missile, the United States deployed another and Reagan and Gorbachev decided they needed to do something to. Tone down the the, the pressure here to ratchet down what was beginning to be a bit of an arms race. So fast forward, almost thirty years in two thousand fourteen the Obama administration accused Russia of violating the agreement belong as nuclear weapons exist. We are not truly saying they accused Russia of deploying a missile that is not allowed under this agreement. And as the tensions ratcheted up over Ukraine in two thousand fourteen, this came to the fore. So enter the Trump administration, and it's more hawkish members like national security adviser, John Bolton, and they are now going to the Russians and saying, you're not abiding by the agreement, and we're actually more concerned about China, which is not even a signatory to this, and so we're pulling out. So what about China? Because I feel like everyone in the US foreign policy apparatus has talking about China, where do they fit in? Well, that's the problem. They don't fit in there. Not a signatory to this when this was conceived of an agreed to over thirty years ago, the Chinese. Were not the ascendant power that they are today. They weren't as of along their borders to guys, there was US and there was Russia. That's it. At that point. Now, enter the Chinese who as we've seen in the South China, Sea and other places are more aggressive and the US feels that with the Chinese being more aggressive, this agreement with Russia constrains the United States is ability to answer the perceived threat from China. Okay. So what's going to happen now? If there is no treaty with Russia, I mean, what are the locations of that? Well, the real concern amongst a lot of people's that we would be in a new arms race, President Trump suggested people come to this inches. We have more money than anybody else. By far we'll build it up unless Russia come to us in China, comes to us. America will pull out and start building new nuclear weapon. That's what the president said. We'll so he sounds kind of open to an arms race then. Well, he certainly seems like he's willing to deploy new weapons and that. This is one of the reasons that he wants to get rid of this agreement because he feels he's constrained again in responding to China and perhaps other threats. The Russians however are also concerned. They in response have suggested that they would then go and deploy these weapons again. And we're back to where we were over thirty years ago when Gorbachev and Reagan decided that needs something about all right, scary history, lesson cure idea. Thanks for giving it to us. Thanks, Brad. This is the news, right? Like our whole job is to bring you the truth. So we don't spend a ton of time on pro wrestling, but this week in one of the most inau Fenwick of places, something very real happened. It started, I guess, like any other episode of Monday night raw. The opening montage. Quick camera cut to the crowd, and then Roman reigns. Music starts playing. Roman reigns is the face of WWE. This is David shoemaker. He's a writer for the website. The ringer Nieto's to wrestling podcast called the masked man show, and he was watching this unfold. Well, so that what point do you realize that this is different? Well, soon as he walks out on the out of the back, you you notice that he's wearing regular street clothes, which is not Roman reigns as look. Yeah, you know, he takes us really. Uncomfortable deep breath when he walks out onto the platform. And at that moment whether or not you knew something was wrong, you knew something was different. So he gets in the ring. He grabs the microphone and then he takes everybody's breath away. He says, my real name is Joe. I've been living with leukemia for eleven years, goes on to say that he, you know, he had leukemia fought it into remission. Eleven years ago. Unfortunately, it's back. He's going to have to give up the universal championship and you know, step away from pro wrestling for a while to to to deal with it. That's what makes this so interesting to me as a non wrestling guy, he felt the need to drop character and do this. And now I guess you know his real life stories kind of intertwined with this WWE character or whatever. Sure. I mean in in the modern era, you know real life and fake life. They're they're kind of inextricable in pro wrestling, but this was a different level and I think it's because the subject was as serious as cancer. I'm, I mean he had to. He had to really make it clear that this wasn't part of a storyline. They weren't going to make it into a story line and win. And if he comes back it will. It will be part of his back story. I wanna make. Cleared by no means. Is this a retirement speech? And the last thing you said there in the ring was after I'm done whooping leukemia, his ass. I'm coming back home. Yes, you've written David. This was a guy who's supposed to be the next golden child of the support. He's being booed as he's entered, and then just incredible to watch within minutes. These fans wiping away tears. WWE says he wanted to do this as himself. So he could raise awareness David shoemaker from the ringer, a new fight to watch your. Thank you for taking a look at it. Thanks so much for having me. The last thing. Let's talk about the economy of candy. Because holy looms candy. Sellers are living in a different economy than the one they've worked in for a hundred years. See people don't just buy candy bars like they do other groceries. Now, the national confectioners association says, a huge chunk of sales are impulse buys. You're not you when you're hungry, snicker satisfies for decades shops figured out how to play to this right. Put them by the cash register charged just enough to make with your pocket change, but what do you do when no one makes impulse buys at the store anymore? Because no one's shopping at the store anymore according to add age, candy companies like Mars Wrigley or getting Uber drivers to stop their cars with chocolate mints impulsive riders with the munchies pay with their phones. Companies are also thinking what impulses we even have when we're online on Facebook, you might be prompted to quickly send your friend from skittles for their birthday. Just a buck rock. The rainbow taste, the rainbow. Other groups are mining data. Figure out exactly what time maybe even when during that Amazon movie that you need a snack. Boom, there's an advertisement purchases, one thing, but you still got a deliver the candy. Otherwise customers won't go to you next time. So Hershey's has been relying on Amazon prime to ship its chocolates as fast as it can sometimes within thirty minutes, but don't look. Now Hershey's. Amazon is experimenting with its own brains of candy. TIs the season to pretend you're buying food for neighborhood kids, then you just scarf at all down yourself.

To address this emergency, President Trump stating he could declare national emergency bypassing congress to build his wall. Something speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi is insisting Democrats won't budge on have I not been clear on. Okay, now have been very clear on the wall.

She decided to fly to Acapulco and take a few months vacation to distress her plane had a layover in Copenhagen, but as she walked into the airport. She found Johnny Stompanato waiting for her. I rate through means unknown Johnny had acquired lawa's flight schedule and managed to get himself to the Copenhagen airport at just the right time to ambusher. He told her that if she was going to break it off with him. He wouldn't let her date anyone else ever again. He bought himself a ticket. To Acapulco and joined her on her flight, essentially taking her hostage when the couple arrived in Mexico, their hotel room became a stage for constant fights and temper tantrums with Johnny never letting her out of his sight on one occasion, things, reached a fever pitch after an iguana broke into the couple's room when they complained to the hotel manager. The manager gave Johnny a gun and told him to deal with the Guana himself rather than use the gun to shoot the Guana, Johnny used it to threaten Lana, even further from November nineteen fifty seven to February nineteen fifty eight Lana was trapped by a madman mobster and Mexico understandably. This was a topic Lana didn't enjoy discussing so details on this period are vague. She finally got an excuse to leave when her mother Mildred call to inform Lana that she. Had been nominated for an Academy Award Lana insisted that she attend the ceremony in person and Johnny. Intrigued by the idea of attending the Academy Awards with her agreed the couple flew back to Los Angeles in early March nineteen fifty eight when they arrived, the paparazzi were waiting for them. Lana showed no signs of the terror. She had been living through as she breezed by the cameras be lining towards her mother Mildred and daughter Cheryl, Johnny on the other hand seemed to be positively beaming with the attention. He was receiving from the Hollywood media. The next few weeks were peaceful as Johnny grew excited for the Oscars on March twenty six nineteen fifty eight Lana attended the Academy Awards with Mildred and Cheryl, but she left Johnny behind on the day of the awards. She had told Johnny over the phone that she was not bringing him along. And she left her home before. He could arrive to cut her off when she returned home. That night, Johnny was waiting for her incensed, he began shouting threatening to kill her to kill her mother to kill her daughter. He threatened to have his mobster. Friends cut up her face and ruin her career. And he backed up these threats by beating Lana, all while fourteen year old Cheryl listened to the violence terrified in another part of the house, when Johnny left that night, Lana told her mother about everything that had happened Mildred told her to tell the police, but Lana refused. Johnny said he would kill her if she told the police, and the press would destroy on his reputation if she went public with her stories ignoring her daughters. Worries Mildred called the Beverly Hills police and inform them that Lana was endanger. She insisted they arrest Johnny, but the police were stopped by red tape legally. They couldn't move on Johnny. Unless Lana herself came forward to report his crimes for about a week, Johnny stay away from lawa's home, presumably, busy with other things. But around eight PM on Friday. April fourth nineteen fifty eight Johnny return to reconcile only this time. Lana was not willing to take him back. She told him that their relationship was over and he needed to leave. He refused and began to argue the two stood in the front hall of the home shouting at each other Lana walked into her bedroom in an attempt to put some distance between them and grab some of his belongings that had been stored in her closet, as Lana handed, Johnny has clothing. He began to threaten her again, saying he'd kill her kill her daughter. Kill her mother his mobster friends would do it too. He promised. They would as Lana opened the bedroom door to get away from Johnny. She saw Cher. Errol her fourteen year old daughter standing on the other side of the door in the hallway trembling with fright. Johnny didn't see Cheryl and quickly jumped into the doorway to block Lana from leaving. If Johnny had seen the girl, he would have noticed that she was carrying a kitchen knife, holding it up to scare Johnny. Instead, Johnny walked directly into the blade, the knife punctured his kidney, according to cheryl's autobiography. He looked at her and said my God. Cheryl, what have you done? He fell to the floor, gasping and bleeding on the carpet. Lana called a lawyer known around Hollywood as a fixer a discreet man who could help public relations nightmares go away. The fixer sent a doctor to lawa's home, but the doctor was too late. Johnny was dead within five minutes of the blade entering his body. Thirty minutes after Johnny died. Lana called the police when the press heard about what had happened. The news exploded with the latest Lana Turner scandal, her mobster boy. Friend murdered in her own home by her young daughter. Police arrived at the home to find Lana discussing the murder with the doctor Cheryl hovered around the house in complete shock both Lana and Cheryl told the police about Johnny's threats and his violence. Lana told them everything she had tried to keep hidden from the press since the beginning of her relationship with Stompanato when police asked why Lana had waited an entire half hour to call. She told them she was afraid of how his death might affect her reputation. She was afraid the press would defame her and accuse her of all sorts of awful things. And she insisted that at first she hadn't realized Johnny had been stabbed at all claiming she had never seen. The knife shimmy, -cially believed Cheryl had merely punched, Johnny until she saw the blood begins spilling out of him, the police, then asked why Cheryl had stabbed Stompanato? She told them she was frightened. By his yelling his threats and his overt aggression. She grabbed a knife, believing she could scare him out of the house, but things happen too quickly. He had run into the knife before even realizing it was there, the police arrested, Cheryl and placed her in a cell at a juvenile detention center to await a coroner's inquest, Lana remained hopeful, looking for a lawyer, who could set her daughter free, as the days passed in the trial approached the Hollywood press began buzzing with rumors many members of the gossip brags began accusing Lon of all sorts of things some said, Lana herself had killed Johnny Stompanato and pinned the murder on her daughter knowing that an underage girl would get a much more lenient sentence. Others said that the mob, had killed Gianni and threatened Lana to swear to secrecy, or else, they would kill her, and her daughter and still others said that Lana was simply off. Awful mother who had raised a psychotic daughter with an unquenchable bloodlust, and an awful hatred for men, Lana and Cheryl were summoned to court for an inquest on April twelfth nineteen fifty eight and the courtrooms audience stands were packed with over one hundred reporters from dozens of different publications. The press watched with bated breath as Lana took the stand to testify. With tears falling from her eyes. Lana retold the events of that night, her voice would break and her focus would slide as she recalled Johnny's death, and too many her testimony seemed like a heartfelt, and heartbroken telling of a tragic tale. However, to the cynical, members of the press lawa's testimony reminded them, far too much of her acting career and the new Noir, film. She had become known for life magazine, even went so far as to print stills from courtroom scenes in Llamas films, next to photos from the inquest itself drawing comparisons between her acting facade and to real-life testimony. Several publications even went so far as to describe Alana's. Testimony as quote the most important performance of her life, despite the Todd reports of the press the jury. Took lawa's testimony at face value, largely because Mildred had warned the police of Janis violence week before the killing occurred. After only four hours of inquest the jury determined that Cheryl crane slaying of Johnny Stompanato was a justifiable homicide by virtue of self defense. They declared that Cheryl, and Lana would face. No legal consequences for the killing of Johnny Stompanato. However, at the same time, the jury expressed concerns about lawa's parenting, skills, cheryl's testimony at the inquest had brought forward many dark issues from lawa's parenting. Cheryl had told the courts about Lana Zak, constant work obligations and vacations away from home often leaving Cheryl to Mildred, her grandmother. Or Stephen her father Cheryl told the courts that even when she was with her mother, Lana would often refer. Rain from hugging her daughter. So as not to mess up her hair and makeup, those things that made Lana. So glamorous in the public eye shirl told the courts about the fights her mother had with her ex husband Bob topping and the sexual abuse. She had experience from lawa's other ex husband. Lex Barker, and finally Cheryl told the courts about the threats and violence. She had witnessed and experienced at the hands of Johnny stumping auto based on Sheryl's long and tragic childhood, the courts decided that Lana had repeatedly neglected and endangered her own daughter. They felt that Lana was unfit to parent and lawa's custody of Cheryl, was legally revoked instead the courts declared Cheryl award of the state and put her in the custody of her grandmother Mildred. Both Lana and Cheryl were forever. Scarred, by the killing of Johnny Stompanato, while living with her grandmother, Cheryl, ran away from home on multiple occasions. And she even developed problems with alcohol and pills as a means of coping with the multiple traumas. She had suffered. She attempted suicide on two different occasions. But luckily, survived both attempts after losing custody of her daughter Lana faced derision from the press they called her an awful mother and a likely murderer, she suffered regular panic attacks and was ordered by the court to see a psychiatrist yet. Even with all her emotional trauma. She took another role by the fall of nineteen fifty eight only a few months after the inquest ironically her first role after the murder was in a film titled imitation of life where she played a famous. Actress who sacrifices much of her personal life to further her career, the story, very closely mirrored, Lana zone. Life has the central conflict was between lawa's character and her character's teenage daughter, who had been neglected by her famous mother. This clip of is performance in the film makes that abundantly clear. Always have that. Yes, by telephone. I post magazine, interviews given the. Lawa's performance in the film was reviewed positively by critics, but many members of the press, couldn't resist bringing up the obvious parallels, and using them as an excuse to keep hounding. Lana about Stompanato death. This constant press coverage even reached Johnny Stompanato family, and John stopping auto the third, the son that Johnny Stompanato hit abandoned over a decade. Earlier filed a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Lana Turner, alleging that she owed the Stompanato family seven hundred fifty thousand dollars as recompense for the murder of his father, the lawsuit languished, in the courts for years as Lana insisted that since the homicide was legally justified. She did not know any money for Johnny Stompanato death. However, as the years passed she grew tired with the suit and in may of nineteen sixty two three years after the ink. Quest Lana, settled the suit out of court for twenty thousand dollars, both Lana and Cheryl spent decades in therapy struggling to deal with the emotional weight of the death of Johnny Stompanato eventually Cheryl move to Hawaii with her wife and became a successful real estate agent. She and Lana, eventually reconnected, their relationship becoming closer as adults than when Cheryl was young after Johnny's death lawa's love life continued to be rocky. She had several more boyfriends and three more husbands who she eventually divorced, though. None were quite as awful as the gangster and abuser. Johnny stompanato. She eventually swore off men in her sixties and maintained a single lifestyle until her death. That's seventy four years old on June twenty-ninth nineteen ninety five she said she was happier being abstinent and. Single than she had ever been with any of her many lovers. Despite all her accomplishments, and fame. Lana Turner was never able to escape that tragic night. Obituaries newspapers and tabloids, who published about lawn as death often mentioned, the murder of Johnny Stompanato in the same article even today. Nary an article is written about Lana that does not mention the darkest night of her life. The morbid tale was simply too perfect to leave alone. Lana Turner was the most glamorous woman in the world praised for her beauty and talent beloved by all Johnny Stompanato was a lowly, mobster, working, extortion rackets in the dark manipulating and abusing all he could for personal gain. The juxtaposition of the two was a case of glorious contrast, the highest of the high brought down by the lowest of below. It was the perfect. Example of the dark and to mulch horrors, that could take place in private beneath the cheery facade of the Hollywood sign. Thanks for listening to the dark side of next week.

We don't have to worry about on the members only. early access so you get all that. One day early, the other thing you for that no ads. Youtube ads off sponsor reads off is just me Ella and all the gang and you Wrong mainline rang tear. Bain. Boy arrived of the raw is a dirty. Thirty bradberry. And most. Importantly in the reason why we're doing this is that you can support support the show you know during these times with Covid, and then going on our sponsors have become frankly less frequent and and more inconsistent and our videos are getting claimed like are not claimed they're getting a demont the. Like crazy like way more than usual like over last six videos, four of them were. Crazy one of them had no ads do monetize. So we're kind of in. A pickle were. Yeah. So we thought you know would be fun to make this kind of membership actually worthwhile for fans try to give some kind of benefit and value there, and also to give you guys the opportunity to directly support the show because our hope. is to grow the show. I don't want to scale back I don't WanNa. Worry about that kind of thing I want to be able to spend thirty, five, hundred dollars on a Gatsby if we need.

Could be soon as a couple of weeks from now, but I don't want to. Do this one I don't WanNa ruin but this one has been the works for a while. It is epic and we wasted a lot of money on her I. Think it's going to be totally worth it. Now, you may be saying yourself, why would I support the show you wasting money on crap like the gase. That's a fair question. I haven't answer for you You don't have to because for the non members nothing changes nothing so. No this sounds like a scam 'cause it sounds way too good to be true but. Nothing changes. That's true. Nothing changes episodes go up at the same exact time. They're the same as a content, the same everything but for those who want to support us directly supports the show and keep the history podcast.

Chad goes deep the party grows. These are absolute legends. I'm super excited to have them on pockets I think they should be terrific guests. And I also want to explain you may be confused because there's different tiers. It says Petrova Papa Blessed and true an absolute legend. Let me describe what the differences Fu Pachuca gets you all the benefits I five dollars a month and the other ones do nothing. You just give us more money. That's how it works. There's literally no difference between them. there you have it. So anyway, I feel like I've talked about that enough let's move on to the. To the greatest show. In. Our Zip Code. You really the greatest show on our a one way street. Like that? So you know this video was circulating on the socials. There was a mega party in Beverly Hills and these new local news copters went. and. Cruised over the party we're filming it like they do traffic there spying on them, which is kind of bizarre kind but like I guess the point is like there's no social distancing there's no There's no masks I mean what's going on and so okay. Here they are. Wild House party and we both throwing bills from the where do you see that here? Look there's money fallen ill let me go back. Look. Like what the hell kind of party is this Dan Should I, get rid of this box can you see this? Yeah just noticeable there. By. Okay. So these helicopters just spying on the party. Of Funny. Kind of weird kind of funny wild. They weren't the only ones there were several of them. And so. I guess they were tagging the merits and Hegel Goldberg up his party they're. They're not social distancing crass tonight where the LAPD has the. Right, now, at a mansion as you can see. Right, now the Responding. Over soon here from sky appears to be dozens and dozens of people at this party we're told there's a food truck there as well as a DJ, the food truck and love the DJ It's located at this address. Looks like a lot of fun listening going on you see the police officers they are. We understand this is a gated mansion just off Mulholland drive lapd on the street outside of the gate will continue all the story and find out if they're handing out any citations. Saying. Okay. So. Well, they're genius cut. So like it kind of turned to a wacky story turned to a tragic story. this footage that the L. A. News people were broadcasting on live TV. well, here before we get into that, this was also the kind of things was. Circulating around social media some maybe it's not really their fault on. Hollywood hills. Party. All the women. Rose Royce's. Matching Party. Drive you. Her body driveway off all these like Rolls Royces. Foods and stuff. Lots. So anyway, I guess a combination of factor. Party like that. I've been to a notch party, which is kind of the thing is not as usually rich person there. And it's just a bunch of like. And social climate is to grandma what is Notch Party L. Literally Notch the guy who made minecraft Rowsley debars part. Eighty million dollar house is the most deprived shit. You've ever seen. It's so bizarre. Because you you expect like a bunch of nurse playing dungeons, dragons like maybe. Maybe not maybe that's a little stereotypical, but like more of a low key kind of fun vibe. I went there with Some friends and It's just so debaucherous. It's like all these. It's it's like the stereotypical toxic la party with like social climbers, instagram models, all these dudes in like ver-. Saatchi. Everyone spends all day at the gym. But also it's just weird like no one knows each other it's just. People just show up and. Notch. Himself wasn't even really hanging out there. It's just I don't know why he does it. I'm just so perplexed by by why does he do that because sure. I'm assuming he probably just wants to fuck that could be the only conceivable. Just wants to fuck some cuties. That's a lot of effort for right and van of Yeah. I mean hey, it's impressive. Right The. What's The craziest Shit you've seen there? I actually didn't stay long but it's just lots of lots of illicit drugs loss of drink gain. That's why we. Log. Impulse. Story. Again. No No, I'm kidding. People make fun of me because I apparently tell that story a lot. How dare they make fun of me. First of all to great story, it is a fantastic story Zach. Anyway. It's just it wasn't my vibe obviously, and then it's like anyone who recognize. Do a I've got what's up man and they like I work for I do this work for this a youtube it's always I worked for this. Youtube MC N. And Yeah, you could tell that none of these people even know what minecraft is you know And then notch cruised out. He was I saw him briefly he was wearing a fedora and. Sandals and like you know. He's totally like still like a sore thumb he's really the great gatsby. I mean there's really no way to describe it. anyway that's neither here nor there. What does that great big Gasping Legras? Big. Big You just call them. What are you making fat jokes standard. Yes. WAS MAKING A Little bit of a fast us. He's Husky. Fat. That's just rude. It's called him big healthy. Healthy No he's he's he's in he's. Apparently I actually liked notch and I was I was apparently, I, said something to him at that party which she's never forgiven me for. Something about. Yeah I don't I don't even remember what I said but he like. I said something to him and Pat I was actually excited to see him because I had never met him and We talked on twitter and the Andrew Foreign and I was. I wanted to hang out them. You know I didn't care about all these other people there. And I said man this. Said well, you something about partying allot I. Think I was just goofing around, but apparently it hit him hard. And Like I talked to him. Briefly On man brought it up like that I wounded him with my comment. Yes. Yeah. I remember that on twitter he got all pissy. Yea, he started. He got re this was all public by the way. I'm not like revealing anything private. He was being real busy to me on twitter. This weird I gotTA DIG UP. The Tory Asli Asshole. I mean, he was nice to me and but when I let us randomly was an asshole you. Yeah he wasn't being rude to me I thought too. But. Then he's like Oh. Yeah. Will you said this music thing to me like three years ago about partying too much I was like I don I swear I. Don't remember saying that but I'm sorry. I was I I only remember what I felt was, which was that I was excited to meet him talk to him and hang out with him so. But I can be an asshole I mean I certainly don't to deny that. Right. WHO DOESN'T Here's his tweet actually I don't feel very comfortable interacting with you because I'm still bummed you told me party too hard after invited you over to a party. You're correct by the way the only interaction we have is you inviting me onto your podcasts I find it Kranji Alright Oh. Yeah. So he goes. So by the way, notch tweeted out something like nobody wants me on their podcasts anymore. And I was like you I was like you're welcome to come on our podcast. I'd love to have you I then he goes Doodo you've reduced one invite me on your podcast it's cringing. Baited me. Into inviting you. He's he's yeah. I mean what Dan rid speaks for itself is like all right, dude. You're really crossed the line. Can you find the original thing he was like? Yeah, very fascinating. The nonstop barrage of requests for me to stream or go on podcast or host things completely stopped. This was because he's like total like alright asshole now and you say come on the street. I don't WanNa make any no I don't endorsing that and said that is why everybody stopped asking him to go but he got political. And so a lot of people don't want to be to to associate with what political stuff and so well, we'll hang on. I. I'd love to have you on the podcast and then he called me cringe. And by the way, some of his tweets, what I'm just looking at some notches deleted tweets, he says like global warming is a hoax for allowed to discuss IQ differences between populations there would be fewer conspiracy theories. Giant astle I will stand by that. We should make us the wrong pronouns. He says Shit like that. So. So obviously, you can understand it because a lot of people not wanting to associated with that, but I like to do I'll I'd love to chat with you by the way his claim that the only time we've associated as me begging him to on the podcast is absolutely false. I used to hang out when I was with Justin Roy than we used to be like let's hang. Out with much all the time, we will call him we and me personally but without Justin I would reach on, say let's hang out because I was like here's a guy who surrounded by people always want something I don't want anything from I just want to hang out and every time I I would reach out. It was just like a hard. No when we with Justin I think. Basically maybe I have a vague memory. One of those times when you just want to hang out basically invited you to party you're like you not into that stuff see us to come to the party I went to the party. He only cruise through like a very briefly, and that's when I made apparently this apocalyptic comment about him partying too much which by the way doesn't some that route even when he retails it I mean he says, you're right. He does have this crazy parties like every Friday should be self aware of what he's doing. He's known I mean people know him in La and the partying seen as the crazy beverly hills. Party, Guy. So. Doesn't seem like much of a stretch to comment on. It's it's true. Well, he said it's true. So I think if anything I was just like you know dude, let's let's hang out. I. Didn't I didn't you know what I mean like let's let's let's hang out just a lower IQ. You think I'm a lower Q. Actually all these people who believe in like Iq populations generally give the actually your lower I q higher I rubbed it off. So shit about just low I. It's so funny when you listen to these people they apparently when when these like IQ raiders by. They give that the Ash Sees Look Iq level working right now. Is US at the highest. IQ. Of any population, I'm here to prove that. single-handed wrong. Is Bullshit dare. Not. Go, now Yeah, you're your DNA test we found out your. Winding Ninety nine percent yeah. One two, million percent. So you are. Pure chosen person. Chosen. person. ACID reflux clear. Your throat I'm trying it's like never ending I got. Mucus. Anyway, we were totally on a tangent. Tangent. The point is I feel like I should just move past this story I guess people will know happened and the point is going back to the mega. How Far Hills. Because the local news was covering it with these helicopters. Gangsters showed up robbed everybody and shot a bunch of people. So crazy twist. We were tracking the story last night, and then I woke up an open twitter at eight am and the first thing on my feed was like shooting at the Party I was like Oh my God that took was like wars can that be the same party and it was sure enough but yeah, I mean everyone's like look at all these wealthy people they've got deejays and food trucks and Rolls Royce and there appears to be money being thrown off the balcony. Here's the address. Here's the pass code, right ANA standards the news. Coverage. Here, a lot of times when it comes to like car chasers. They'll follow the chase like it's action movie. Yeah. That's good ratings and. It's like a huge. Song I think he'd do it elsewhere too. But in particular for whatever reasons plus with the car chase. Yeah. But the freeways you got the but it is it's I. Just feel like it's encouraging. Oh, it's horrible. I mean it's just horrible. People should not watch that you know when I was a kid I loved it because there was you who was alive, right? It's GonNa Kinda. Watch. Because like. You should be on them not to arid. Of course and you know the the the allure is like because it's live. What's going to happen when I was people there was a dude who like shot his brains out on live TV on number. One, and there's just like gnarly crashes I mean it shouldn't be on that was the one because of that one. Now when they are coming to a conclusion, they always zoom way out because they got a lot of flack because a lot of flack. Yeah they've been well, they broadcast dude blowing his brains out on live television like maybe we shouldn't. Zoom. In on this. Probably just shouldn't do it at all they should. Anyway that is that so So I guess I don't know congratulations to everybody involved. To the non social distancing party to the local news. and condolences to the people who were shot and a shoutout to notch as well our out. We're GONNA throw it to break quick. There's only one AD. But when we come back, I am taking I'm going to war with impulsive the podcast that's it. The gauntlet been thrown the line in the sand drawn. That's it all out war when you come back shots fired.

Racist bigger and when he says you hatred I think. That doesn't sound like, Oh, you're a hater bro that sounds like you are a hateful person that seems a little extreme I feel like from his perspective probably being like Logan polls best friend We've criticized Logan Paul. So that's probably what they think about half. That we're just haters. Yeah, I. Guess from his perspective. You might say although Logan previously when they're discussing us is pretty like cool. But Mike is always kind of making it. Mike is Always He's D'Amico. Let me continue on he actually nice things to say about you Eli he says also shout out to allow for being the voice of reason. So I, agree with that I mean I was like, Hey, at least he likes one of us. And homey with the Long Hair Zach get ready saying he would never fuck a porn star is senior type buddy. You would pay five K to smell my girl's panties. Back with you think. Being, on the receiving end. Yeah. I'm cool bro? I don't I don't WanNa do that I don't want to spy your girls Tanis. Said was like I wouldn't have sex with her what are you gonNA attack me for hang on you. All you said was that you wouldn't you wouldn't date or Faulk porn-star. Yeah. Exactly. Which I think is an and I think that's that's not a controversial opinion I mean again, he you are at so Mike He seems to be a little bit defensive frankly about the issue he. Also says to another person and thread I think that like he doesn't care about good jobs them but like he expected us to do more research if we were going to talk about it so much but it wasn't really planned out segments. First of all, it was just kind of like you made a Random Joe can then became this whole conversation 'cause I made it. Made a big deal out of it because I it's just happened at the moment. It's not really something that we. Talk about okay. But you know what? I've done. Mike because you came at me. Guess what I've done. I've done my research now and let's talk about Mike and Lana because you wanNA throw be moon. heedful rhetoric. Do Some Research Zach Sweet Golden Zach. If you go after sweet young Golden Zach, you'd better meet me in the octagon full because I won't be drop that. What's that crazy had doing anime? May there's one that's like the ultimate kill shot the crowds whose growth school Bob of death joke. I'M GONNA fuck you up. Appreciate worth spending, dude nobody talks about. By the totally. Unit deserve that. Thank you? Yeah he he was super off off his line over you said, you didn't like him maybe that's. Zach I don't like him but. But hello, he's a public figure entitled to not like him have. Welcome to the Internet Mike people are entitled not to like you you bitch. Guess. Let's talk. Just bloggers is fucking mouth. All right. Go go off Queens just got like a lot of the time no frame of reference, and he could just shut the fuck up quite frankly. because. He's annoying there you goes expert watching the speaking his mind but Zach is also actually a fan of the loganville channel right? I am so. Yeah next. So somebody clapped back at Mike Twitter he said he didn't even say anything bad about Lana Zak the guy with the long hair just didn't like you not everyone's going to be a fan go off. Anna so what he didn't know your girl didn't do porn anymore and you expect everyone to know Mike I love your podcast but I feel like this is kind of immature. Sorry shredder. Did you make that Zach? Zero two, eight, two, seven, six, five is not all. The nanogram. Mike responded. If you're going to speak confidently on topic, do your research. That's it. Really we I didn't speak confidently but anything the whole conversation was just us. Yeah questioning hi, they're really I don't recall. It was just a random joke that ethan made. was basically it's telling him. Look. This may be a joke, but you may want to think about who it's going to appeal to. So first of all Wanna point out all the was there. Really. You didn't say anything bad about anyone I. Agree I've of pure I'm purifier soul. Everyone's entitled to their Opinion Mike. You don't have to shit your gym shorts every time someone says they. Backfire. Love, it. Dude you don't Piss Zakharov Bronco fucking out. Guitar Hero That gives us humor it's hard to piss him off. Okay. So you want research you want research Mike. Let's start here. First of all I find it interesting that you didn't take any issue with the fact. That You're what I said about the genitive properties of the female body. No, you didn't care about that. The only thing you care about Mike was insinuation that she's still having sex with other men for profession, and so I find it very interesting that you focused on that yet by the way, the the main accusation in our podcast is that your whole crew is spreading cove it knowingly at some how the fact that I thought Lanna was still doing porn was more obscene to you. Then the fact that you are personally spreading a deadly disease. Do. You tell your guests by the way when they show up and sit a foot away from your uncovered mouth that you are in contact with somebody who tested positive. You Bitch. Back. Yeah Okay let's keep. H is a hit episode while I'm the guy's a fucking Bob you better do your research. Bro, not done yet. I'm not angry I just want to make a clear I'm just. It's a shame because we were just starting to say, nice things about the poll. The L. P. I was not the JP. Think we're all starting to like Logan but this whole thing about with tanneries I I don't care hit me with that sound bite of Logan saying he doesn't care. Hit the clock Dan. You have clock sound effects. You do. Scott husted. That's GEIC. You don't have Logan, I don't have Logan never pulled I taught. All because we watched it. Is True Zach. Can you grab Logan? Go Man. Anyway Logan said, when tanner's like yo Bro I have covert and I was hanging out with. You. Like I, don't fuck and then the next day he does a Pug podcast. So meanwhile. Mike is so upset that I didn't know she retired three years ago retired. Okay. So maybe you can explain to me. Why she posted to her porn hub account in April. That does that seem like retirement? Oh Mike. Well, she's not having sex with other. That's technically retirement. Okay. She's doing like A. She's with girl. She's doing solo stuff I mean that's still porn. Dude. What am I, what what are we splitting hairs here or take if you're thinking to do that you're retired from? Port what. I mean, we're not following that closely. Young not all I see Mike. Is that she's been number one on porn hub. beat off. And I'm like, wow, she's number one all the time. So like it's pretty reasonable assume that she's still making point and by the way. She's beautiful. Girl. I mean. That's just a compliment her I don't know why it gets so. Like this is all coming from the fact that she's that big in the US you should be he's dating number one, but he got so upset I think he just I think he's so insecure about dating porn star. That this basically this small insinuation of which is clearly a very reasonable mistake to make. Yeah is a somehow he was so upset that I think he's just really insecure. About the whole thing and he doesn't want people to think like that threatens his masculinity that she might be having sex with other men for her profession, and so he needs to make it very clear to everybody. Knew she retired. And by retired I mean she just doesn't have sex with other dudes but you still mix born actively all the time on our only fans. So technically she's not retired. What is retired mean even in this context Better. Grab some that Kirkland to play because he's shit his gym shorts dude. Wow say no more. You know it's funny because even her only fans as recently as like may she was posting videos of her with another dude and yes, we went to only fans and did research for this segment because Mike Like you said, if you're going to speak you better know bitch. So? Yes. She was even posting dudes with. With other dudes as recently as May was old. Video right but she's still posting it right. So excuse me. Excuse me ee for insinuating. That well, let's keep going make because I've done my research what we came gone. Oh, there's more baby. There's more now Mike. Let's talk about disgusting rhetoric. Let's see what Mike has said about his own girlfriend and women in general. Listened to Mike say for himself and you tell me disgusting rhetoric when you hear. Speak for the commenters and stuff does it in any way bother you girlfriend is married or has done anal sex with large background on camera. That she's married. But there are two separate questions. How do you want me to do you want to start? III So. He's thirty five and it was born in January. So he's old as fuck he's older than me. He's older than me. He's thirty, five or. Thirty five yeah but he's older by four months. Okay This fuck because he's the oldest he's always fuck. He's older than me. He's the oldest loser on Youtube. Now, that's a rich. He's the older age. No, he's four months older. Older I'm just saying. He's like, yeah, we're on Youtube. Say Like, oh I'm gonNA sleep in half. Technically. He's than me old as fuck. I'm not the oldest biggest dump fierce loser ever. But Ethan. Doesn't Shit is gym shorts might does. Watch this. Thing that actually happens. You know it gives you the. Shits. Short. and. In this hypothetical situation is the turns fall out the pant leg. All he's running. It's a fucking oven come on. Anyway, let's listen talking on Golden. Okay. Rhetoric. Let's talk about. Let's listen to Mike. The marriage. My girls. The may the marriage thing. is a different topic. Let's start with start with Dana, the Buckman. His name tattooed on. Okay. So let's let's start with the second one. too, hot for LP. He's going to sell back. He's going to sit back I ready for this I'm latest for you. The shit the I did before I got on the scene. Was So fucking dirty and so fucking bad. There is nothing I. Don't know. But like I don't know how he's going to I mean I couldn't even imagine it sounds bad. But that's maybe what I'm talking about. Anyone. To to the benefit of Mike I will give him credit. He is a recovering drug alcoholic. Okay. Well, then then the I have nothing to comment on that. Okay. Yeah. No I was just wondering I. Don't know. Let's not get sidetracked. Let's focus on the hateful rhetoric. Could have done in their past that would change the way I look at them as a person. Nothing, Bro Right. Oh. Sorry I fucked up. The question was, how do you feel about your girlfriend having sex with other men on camera? You move girl obviously in the way he phrased it but I'm trying to keep it PG thirteen point. Do you know how many girls in this city have fucked their way to the position? They're currently in and didn't get paid a dollar for this Man That's kind of misogynistic How many girls in the city of fuck their way into the position they're in. That seems like kind of fucked up statement. That's a little bit hateful towards women if I if I was looking closely but here they could. Not Really. Yeah. That's I. Don't really see why even make that comparison and the fact that women. Had to do that. There's also a big part of the me too movement that. Is Hopefully you're gonNA change all that. Away he goes on to say like we're happy to do that knows Mike No. Not A. And No, it's not. A lot of success for women to either I don't know what he's talking well, here Ella listen he he goes on. Big Browsers contract on the table to restart in-in the next bond she's not doing it. Wow. So she she she actually has has has done. Do you think you would be able to stomach it if she was actually Into work knowing porn then coming back home to you know not. -solutely, not the man Mike is not down. For what He Zach you said, you wouldn't WanNa. Do that he came at you Mike himself has said that he wouldn't do it. I don't see what's the problem but listen what he says next. So we so obviously, you know I've. Had flings with other. Women, ready big. nope. Other pretty big adult actresses I'm saying. The. Same. Distance as as Lana has and we didn't have the same you know. Feelings for each other different place in our life for sure. But the reason is is because they are still very active in the scene and so. She, has passed. She took a whole bunch of fucking dicks just like every other fucking girl in the city. What? Cameron on. I think it's a very I. think it takes a very specific man to be okay with that Shit I said it I said on our show the other day. If you compare her bodies to my body's. Holy Shit mentioned that Shit I. Would I I. Have You fucked homeless women? I used to do terrible terrible. fucking things so that sounds. I just don't something to be proud of yet. Play it doesn't sound like he's. Proud of what he says he said he said quote she's taken a ton of Dick's like every other girl in this city. Joking Dude. Bob just saying Bro you're GONNA throw shots I mean that's that's that sounds a lot more hateful misogynistic anything I said, which was a simple question of the regenerative and elastic properties of I'm really pursuit of knowledge without any hateful intent. Mike Then of course Came Star suddenly loves Mike Soon as Mike calls me on on twitter star suddenly Mike's best friend which is just so funny leave has actually what's funny is keeps stars actually talked a lot of shit about Mike but all the sudden. Came Goes Mike. You just worry about your happiness all the sudden he's like a self help guru. People are always going to tear you down, but you are winning I have criticized you more than almost anyone on the Internet but I respect your hustle and I just want you to know that. Good Guy came star all. Within of course, Mike has to respond because the and now it's all good feel good love Powell shitting on. Ethan appreciate that came I'm not mad at all. Honestly, this is just pro two pro criticism. Not, perfect research either. But if I'm gonNA dive balls deep. Into a topic I hope to at least understand the core points of said topic. He missed the mark today. Bro First of all I wouldn't consider myself a pro and I don't know what the fuck you are your professional Kotel writer. Like seriously, what fuck? Like so self congratulatory. And he missed the mark today. I let Mike Down. Again. The the mark was specifically just. Not. Knowing that she was quote retired. That's what I missed. Because to. recessional is completely different. He he took his only takeaway really was that We were actually honored assumption that she's still doing the work that you see around. Internet a lot, right so. Fine. We should've known better, but we that assumption and to us who? Am Like the interesting conversation is when you date someone who's doing that work what is that like? He had no comment on that but they're not actually in that situation either. Yeah. But like the misunderstanding the fact she's posting to her porn hub account and only fans actively I mean. Again for him to get so wild about the fact that I missed the mark today by my lack of researches is weird and he's clearly just super insecure about it. with that being said. You know. I do want to actually I'm not done. Here's the thing right like I'm not even done. Like because I wanted to make sure I did all the proper crash You know. So that I could really make him proud of me I don't WanNa. Miss the mark again the first time like I thought like no way I'm GonNa do the first time she had sex with Mike this guy keep having sex with him because he was just so bad I was like this is so awkward and like horrible. We like I like tried to like we like try. Not. Force it but it was like inch interesting. Couldn't police her. I wonder if that has anything to do with the insecurities. Awhile at least I may have been onto something right like I. Mean You have performance issues when you as a man trying to follow up because not just like the people she's had sex with, but she she she is an experienced woman. She's profession he's a professional. Sex however. And I would be I would be intimidated right so like I don't feel. So obviously, you know the guy was having some performance issues. She was like Oh. This is awful. You know but anyway to say Mike says here. Just doing my research my due diligence. Perks person and Gavin I pursued be like Oh my God she's she's been with all these guys before me like how do I measure up? You know what? I'm saying And then they get on your high horse on twitter. Judge me. You just literally said the average person would say that. As long as she's telling me after our sex that it was incredible and that like and I'm asking anyway. any thoughts any summaries did I do good. How do we do my research after seeing all that I mean I Don't necessarily feel. Bad for him but I mean, I. Think you're right that this. His. Snapping at you was Rooted in a little bit of insecurity he said and and I don't know I've a little bad for him. This is probably something struggles with might be an issue in their ship. That's maybe that's far to even speculate I think that if you're going to date a porn star, you just gotTa you gotTa. Because like he's he's obviously pressuring her but maybe an an and directly because he's saying if you go back to doing this, then it's over and so may I mean look? That's her profession. She might want to do that, and if you're not willing to do it with her then she's she's not being able to deliver the full experience to to the fans that that like her content. So I do. Feel like that's a kind of unfair stipulation. It's like if you're going to date a porn star, you gotta be ride or die you you go with the whole package right and so he obviously has this kind of macho insecure thing about being cocked to whatever 'cause that's what it is like another dude, fuck your girl then comes home deal. That's that's the life that you kinda sign all I can say. One of full-fledged Paul from Mike to the sleep podcast. What about? Ago, what what would you like him to apologize for Zach shitting Jim Short. And we're here in not doing his research. Yeah. He didn't do his research first of all by the way don't like him so I do not like him but. that. Attack, apologised for not liking him but what is What is he apologizing for that? You know he accused me of lack of research but in the same tweet, he refers to Zach as Homey with the long hair could've taken three seconds to figure out Zack's name less goal. Of course, was to be disrespectful which leads back to the original point of the criticism which he laid at me which is spreading. Hey. So which is it? Are You doing bad research? Are you being hateful towards Zach? Yeah. So you need to tell me which one it is. And then apologized for the one that isn't. That's what he does. Apology for. And finally. TIKTOK. Is being threatened to be banned of the place the face of the planet Earth Tick Talk The beloved. Blossoming, APP that has taken the world by storm actually really taken the trump trump artists got one hundred million users in the United States. That's like one third of everybody. I'm sad to say I'm not in the ranks of Tiktok but I do feel like I'm missing out. To. Onetime. Funder you know dancing singing. Flirting. Everybody's on Tiktok man I just can't I just can't bring myself to invest thing is like you have to kind of put an effort to be on Tiktok on twitter you can be like I I wrote a sticky four. Like. But you know what I mean you don't have to post. Well I have a ghost account. But do you actually spend time on top? No me me neither I try I. Try you know. But I feel like you kind of have to invest some time for it to get to know what you like because it's just not that personal life for me right now and it's just like. Crowd. So but but I I do try. Anyway TIKTOK president trump has put his foot down on Tiktok tiktok actually spoken about this previously is owned by Bite Dance, which is a Chinese company, and there's been a lot of fear Among policymakers shares in the United. States that. They're sharing data with the Chinese government and let's face it that is. All but probable I mean knowing the Chinese government, those dudes are shady and They totally would do that I. mean they have a like an authoritarian total grasp on all business and industry. There's no. There's no standard I mean. Yeah. So I'm sure that China's is spying. actually an India, a band tiktok recently to and Tiktok was huge in India is had over one hundred, million users. So this has precedent. trump of course, announced this on social media. When he said he would ban Tiktok by executive action as soon as Saturday. Now this would, of course, deprive us of great content. You know you always wonder where where's club person in all these legends of Youtube they're on Tiktok. Eight hundred thirty five thousand likes is that views view the same as a like. No but then how many views does have I. Think it is. something. So then how many heart have? Because he must have a lot of us necessary we liked it as. He Still Rockin the Gold Lambeau. Back, right now, just like what I got you got. Wow. This is a collab- with the Russians. Over the. Where's the keys? Won't. Slip. I. Hate when this happens Kobe person has. Is still making the bomb ass content. Now. This five point six, million views. How do you see that I just don't think it shows them on desktop he's probably what how many of us. Five point six, million. People are so down on Tiktok. Actually, I have noticed that like. Pretty big? The views on tick Tucker huge ban. Short form so you probably watch it a few times. What are we doing? We gotta get a TIKTOK. We need a podcast clips there, but even just the likes alone that's a lot. and. He has six point, four, million followers onto. So that's what's up co they all these guys. These facebook brokers always moved to like the lowest common denominator they were on facebook. Now they're all in Tiktok. So that's Kobe person and actually while I'm added the twins from Russia the show video and the same exact location and other goes. What are we? Have a billion dollars if you, lose Let's. Go. No. Way. No Way. Yeah, he was Greek. Yogurt. Oh, there's music playing we can't play the music. y'All. So quip on. All right take the car. So, we are at risk of losing. You know these pranksters have found a new home we need to protect them at all costs. Leaders of both parties of the United States have criticized the APPS. by Dan's for allegedly sharing its user data with the Chinese government. Of course they have denied it but that's exactly what Wendy. The POO would say. When the of course Chairman See who? The hell. Was that reference he looks just like one of the. And he'll throw your ass in jail for saying that which is awesome. That's why you gotTa Love America. Because people a lot worse about trump every day and they don't go to jail. So Hey, God bless. America right. also notable then early July. TIKTOK was banned in India as I said, they had one hundred and nine, hundred million users in India when it was banned. So it was a huge deal they're. Actually Microsoft announced that they wanted to buy Tiktok for the Chinese market so they would take over Tiktok, it wouldn't change it all. They would just basically take it over for the US and But so it was all on shaky ground because trump was like I'm gonNA banned tiktok microwave I'm no by at Bro. They said, it's they're committed to acquiring tick TIKTOK. But they need approval from the US government to do so. And so you know what's funny as another. Theory for why trump is hell bent on banning tiktok is that people on Tiktok have been mercifully mercifully. Mercer Merlin. Mercilessly. MERCED NOT WITH MERCY WITHOUT MERCY goofing on trump you guys remember the Tulsa Rally Flop Trump said there's going to be millions of people there. They had this whole overflow and basically like eight thousand people showed up it was like a little flop. Well, Tiktok had a huge hand. and making happen with videos like this one here. That we're going viral over Tiktok guys on actually heard that superior but I never saw the the videos that people made about it. So this one here's one here's one, for example. Give your phone number and you can get two tickets. So I got two tickets but I totally forgot that I have to pick every individual piece of land off of my room floor and then sort them by size so I can't the league. Friday as. Well already got the tickets. And accidentally just verified it to Silveira means there's GonNa be at least two empty spies guys. That's awful. Careful going to do this. Just in case you know you can't make it. You know you don't WanNa Bunch of. MDC. And another thing is if you are doing it, make sure to use the right zip codes just so that they know you are in the area. So I gotta say, that's a pretty. Like I, mean Damn. They got got so bad because people were literally reserved millions of seats and only six thousand people showed up. Is Legendary troll it trump's campaign manager is named escaping me right now but he was really hyping up the fact that so many people were going to be there and then they can do like a week after that. Because What goofed. This was so yeah, it was. It was quite a good if I have to say and I think these kids probably had a huge apart and and curbing their expectation or like encouraging the expectations and then there's other people like Sarah, Cooper Sarah Cooper. Who was just she does these lip synching trump. talks and she's just She's so good at it. Whatever you think about trump you really have to give this girl don't forget all the credit in world. This is hilarious and when I saw her. I saw her on twitter I was like. She's going to be huge and she has been huge I feel like she's literally. Actually. Getting to him at this point I just I can't stop watching the and they're so simple but it's just too funny. To here's one. That anybody in the world. But why? Because we do more testing when you test, you have a case when you test you find something is wrong with people. If we didn't do any testing, we would have very few cases. They don't want to write that comments and so we test much more many many times. South Korea here about. I spoke with the President of South Korea spoke with many different presidents, prime ministers. Can't believe what we've been able to do testing. They can't believe what we've been able to do in letters were sending them ventilators other countries. Italy Spain? Other countries, friends tremendous problems, tremendous problems. With ventilation. Forget. We have more cases than anybody in the world. She's like exploded I think it tick tock generally like all the Zimmer's artist totally clowning on trump there and and and you know I do think trump is that petty frankly speaking? Because he's he's threatening to take quick action to ban Tiktok but then he set a date gave an ultimatum to Microsoft. He said you have till September fifteenth cut a deal with Microsoft at which point is going to be out of business. But here's the other strange wrinkle in this he says. He says. So right now, they don't have any rights unless we give it to them. So. If we're GONNA give them the rights than it has to come into this country. He said. He said here An unusual declaration trump said, any deal would have to include a substantial amount of money coming to the US Treasury I've never heard of and like that my whole life. Why. Would the government but the government need to be paid? An order to buy a company. From what I understand the rationale is that because he has put. This diplomatic pressure essentially by by. Creating the scenario where they're about to get band, he has contributed to creating the value of Tiktok and therefore feels like the government is entitled to a cut of that because. The value is being driven up because of his ultimatum I don't really since when does the government to collect attack would I'd get up? That's the thing you know so. To go onto the conspiracy theory that he just wants to shut down tick tock, this could be a caveat and impossible caveat. To ensure that it shuts down, we'll see on set by September fifteenth well, I don't know the Microsoft in their statement. The did kind of tip their hat to that saying that they understood and agreed that the the treasury would need. It's cut. So I guess, they're willing to play ball just taxes. Don't they always get a cut of everything not directly to the Treasury I don't think I don't know it's all over my head. Okay. So. Read very well, it's looking at it well, frankly speaking I would feel a lot more happy knowing that Tiktok was owned by an American company because I think the Chinese are definitely spying on us through Tiktok like for sure. There's even been like big companies like what was it Google or? Or a company like that apple I don't know that prohibited their employees from having tiktok installed on their phones. Interesting. Yeah. So that should tell you all you need to know. Really. and. Then of course, there are people that are very sad about the tragic ending of Tiktok and sacked please soundbite this anywhere. Take talk is our home. Sound trump has no need to ban. TIKTOK. Just because the haters. TIKTOK. Is My home and everyone's. Takes on. His chest looks airbrush face Tiktok is all them. Need to bend Tiktok just because they sound bite that. Well I'm certainly hoping that we can do everything in our power. To. Save Tiktok and not only to save TIKTOK. But to may turn make Tiktok American. I think a lot of kids love it so much and they've already had such a terrible year twenty twenty. Oh. We can do it to them. They've already lost. And they're like, oh, we we lost fine but here's tiktok. Yeah you know we're whole again we found purpose and direction life and now Donald Trump coming here by executive order and take away the only thing they have left. No. I'll tell you what if trump bands? TIKTOK HE'S GONNA lose. He's GonNa lose a lot of. He'd probably well, they don't really vote. Yeah. Well they don't overwhelmingly they don't. That might that might rally the troops young kids out there it'd be like. This is where I draw the line, take talk babies in cages. I sleep Tiktok band I, Vote No, I'm just kidding I. Don't know. I mean, he does put babies in cages. They made like that is something he does. I mean there's pictures and stuff I mean I don't know if you want to get into that. One of these things but it's one of those conversations. It is definitely something that is happening now. Right. I just. Wanted to go there. But I. Don't know that much out of seeing some photos and stuff. So I should be more concerned about it but they have it. Ethan come on. Can you just wrap it up they'll get into some shit. Anyway. Tomorrow's, episode is. GOING TO BE Super Fun. We have again Chad Njit the Marlboros. These are absolute legends. I'm super excited to have them on tomorrow.

Like no no old. This is jumping back just a bit, but I just wanted to ask you. With this whole tiktok thing in Microsoft buying them. Microsoft's pretty notorious for. Running things into the ground. Really. I didn't know they. They they kinda you know they've had a lot of false starts on various project. Remember there was windows phone for awhile and everybody that yeah. Well, there's lots of things like that. So I just kind of wonder if like they're going to go through all this trouble, there's going to be all this drama about. Going to buy it, and then within a year to talk will be my space and everybody. Pretty Sad. Well, they were on Skype skype was like the number one APP ever Microsoft bought it, and it's like, how did you ruined script everybody loves Scotland and now everybody hates skyping is so annoying to us. I I don't know how they do that though they would. Really. Flop Mixer. Right mix flop to facebook I thought. No that was Michael. One of saying I like Microsoft is on a long losing streak there. They would just buy it and It just proved that if you made one great software that doesn't mean that you can just go ahead and make what else. I mean. Microsoft is kind of a big deal. But is that all they've done I don't know. Windows like ubiquitous, but that's kind of part of windows but the Zun. Zoom was another thing that flopped. Wait. Bagley what is in? Look up is. Yeah, it was their ipod competitor. Let me do some re what is Microsoft own because I feel like they've must have done something right they I mean obviously they do. But they've had a lot of els to over the years. So I kinda just wonder if guys. Valid question. I think. So I'm looking at a list of companies they've bought. a love them I don't recognize their food. I'm trying to find once a day today hotmail that didn't really go anywhere. No hotmail was a big deal. I is male once upon a time I did. Yeah. We all did when you when I met you e. Mail all day how male is MSN which I think a lot of people xbox. xbox is has been successful. Shish. Well well but. On. Playstation and all the way. That's what I'm saying. Excellent. Yet xbox is a huge accomplishment. Yeah. I'm trying to see what else they got here. They have a fucking God ungodly amount of properties. A lot of the things that are successful like enterprise for business and you don't really. Yeah exactly. Yeah. A lot of their public facing endeavors have crashed and burned pretty believe. The amount of should they own the get get-go and desktop Enderle I don't know what the fuck that is they might be super successful whale communicate I mean there's so much that yeah. Jellyfish Dot Com what the hell is that. Big Park. skype yes. Later, skype used to be cool beneath suck. But? Yeah. Just wonder Nokia the Nokia, they kinda ruined Nokia Nokia used to be. Like the phone company and Joe. For the windows phone thing in all of that kind of crashed and burned told on I, gotTa give it up to them on this one motioning minecraft they definitely that was. W. So they went on that one good point. Okay. Well, and like in the tech. Field. They kind of have mixed. Israel. Flags. I'm still looking at his really captivated by probably snatch up over the compulsion games, playground games, dead labs, Ninja theory do any of those companies Theories sounds familiar video they onus obsidian entertainment. I didn't actually know those guys make great games black I'll. those guys make like fallout. Don't they It's sort of they made Here. I'll tell you everything they've made you. I that that's the company that came out to the old republic the original fallout New Vegas. Vegas. Pillars of eternity that was a great game. You play that one pose fraternity too. So. They're they're they're. Yeah. I'm really interested by this I don't know if anyone's with me but send episode. So. Double fine productions. Psycho, nuts. That's Tim Schafer's company. That's a big deal. Okay. Well, in the gaming space obviously, they've had a like you pointed out with the XBOX's success. So they yeah, they're very hit and miss. A. Lot of hits tiktok is going to be one of their biggest properties at this point if they by man I wonder how much they're gonNA have to show up for that GONNA billions for sure it's going to be a lot apparently, they're not just buying. American TIKTOK but like US Australia New Zealand and Canada. Golly. That's going to be like I didn't know how much like one hundred, billion, I mean. I don't know much a lot of money is that like uh? Really lucky situation for them. That's what trump saying because like think it is trump. Or fuck off forever. Yeah, and so they're being forced to sell it, and frankly tiktok is still early in its developmental rise. And so I don't know that you can even fairly judge its value. So. Microsoft is definitely it's a buyer's market because what choice do they have? It's like either get paid or get nothing right? So. Yeah. I mean. I think is right when I the point I was trying to make earlier poorly about trump wanting the government to get a cut. That's what it is because he's putting the screws on them. Microsoft is GonNa get a good deal. Therefore, he feels entitled to a cut isn't that fucked up to acknowledge that it's almost like it's like some weird mob showers kind of is. This. What does? Not. It'd be nice. If if TIKTOK had to sell ya I mean at least on I mean. Going to help the country then. Talking to help the country is no. It's going to hurt the country the money that they. Did even if the US gets a couple billion dollars I mean that's like literally like pennies to the government is kind of dropping the book I'll I mean but you know what I mean yeah. Everything helps I guess, I mean what is that like one or two fighter jets? I mean, really how much those fighter jets costs. Tomahawks yeah I mean yeah. That shit goes a long way. couple. Of fighter jets that will sit vacant for thirty years. SCOULD. Well, anyways I we were kind of done with that topic and I brought it back but. Oh Shit. There's there's a whole nother list. Wait hold the phone. More more Microsoft these are these are huge ones. We why does it say correct name what does it say? Apple. They don't they're not involve with apple or they have stake in apple did you know that? You know they have a billion dollar stake in. In the nineties Microsoft saved apple actually I didn't realize that that was still ongoing they own they own a billion dollars of comcast as well. Yeah I mean a lot of these companies have have a stake in each other. So five billion dollars in at and T.. Jesus what the Fuck telewest communication was best buy. facebook they own two hundred and forty million dollars. That's really not that much. Barnes and noble. As tough. That's a tough one. They have six, hundred, million in Barnes and noble. I can't believe how. They're everywhere what is going on I don't know it's it's GonNa work all these big companies they will ticketmaster everywhere. CNBC USA networks liberty media. Okay this is getting scary. HOW THESE COMPANIES They're like It's like Vol-, March, spreading US whore crooks everywhere. It's like it's like they're unkillable at this point day they have seeds and and like tendrils in. So many parts of society it's like they're they're they're immortal I mean it's it's creepy. So We're. Doing Guber. AOL. Nine O. Of Snow Good. purify is trending now because apparently spotify got licked. So people are criticizing him for what kind of music you listen to. What will will will will will what His private playlist got leaked people shitting on them. I. Think that's what I'm understand. Because I was looking at this a few minutes ago. Yeah. Break in. I mean maybe some people are hitting him but it's more so that he's into a lot of LGBT artists. That's the problem I don't think it's a problem I think it's just came as a shock to a lot of people and they're like, if you look at his top artists, it's It's it's Kinda. Surprising is. Not what you would guess This This is his top wait. Somebody hacked his shit and then looked at its top artists. That's so bizarre. It might not have been hacked maybe they just. His playlist or something and realized. How is this conversation? I guess because people assume that pupils raisch bag but he listens that it'll be gt he's not who I'm just saying what? The same people who will be shocked by that. Are. A. Simply be surprised by that. interesting. So who are these artists he's listening to? Here's a tweet, the fact that PD pies training because of his hyper pot taste that means into. Kinda sub-genre. Leans. Into lgbt movement and the fact that he has changed from his past, but people will still bring his drama from four years ago is tiring. It's true. Well. anyways. So I guess that's what that's all about. Will people are see some people applauding his excellent taste music I for one I have to say he's in pretty because I'm not familiar with any of these artists although I'm not really music fanatic e and do you know any of these artists? Just pulled it up I. I know a couple. What do you know before? But I've seen a two of them in concert. Really. Okay which ones. Sophie and slater. Had to see slater it's like it's like I like most of these guys. Yeah. So you're co-signing good taste. Your taste you go in and knows Aman. Ian No CNN. Knows everything about music. He's are quick keeper of culture. History of youth and euthanasia in the words of Ali g I think people are just kind of thrown off because a lot of these artists do have. Their a little. Cult. Following little artists with a lot of die hard fans in a lot of them are. Not people who support these artists so You, know what's? got. The sense that pupae is like socially very progressive and liberal and I feel like whatever people think about him isn't really the truth about who he is as a person I feel like privately he's a very different person than what people think of him and. I. Guess. This is kind of proof of that. behind the curtain. which is kind of ironic because everybody thinks like that. He's just this radical reactionary. Actually went to when I saw one of these artists. Sophie some dude tried to fuck me in the bathroom. Tell me about that. He's choked up my Saudi pop and. Did Not, expect to say that at all, as you can tell by the response like I said, they're big in the gay community's artists and. I was there and I went to the bathroom washing my hands and this guy comes by any He like puts his hand on my shoulder and he's like you WanNa get in the stall. This was I think. The Artists Charlie sex, and then sophie was performing. And I was like I'm not gay and he was like, but you like Charlie. And Sophie. Well. And he was like, are you sure you don't WanNa go really quick I'm not sure I'm fine reverse homophobia. Right there. Dude as crazy that he just assumes anyone in the bathroom wants to fuck him to what was he good looking guy. I don't remember now I can't I can't recall but Were you tempted he was down on his knees the whole time. So he didn't really get a good look. Kinda interesting with these artists because like I don't know it's interesting. If you're fantasies artists, I wonder why I wonder why is it that appeals someone to so many lgbt Q. I'm not sure. I, don't know it's hard to hard to say but there because it's pop music their music bigs in the in the in the gay clubs and stuff and and all these daybreak. Open, and welcoming right. Well I think it's nice that beauty by listen to that music. Yeah Could, for him. And, good for you in as well. Do. You regret you ever think about that guy I mean were you tempted at all or was like Nah I'm. Just curiosity. Him In in the guy at the Arby's drive through I'm Oh. Yeah. You love in the most unusual places. But even like. Even if if I was into it, I wouldn't fuck in. It's not the right setting. Graphics, not for you. What he him he wouldn't. He is a massive. I wonder if a really hot if a really high all came up and was like hey. Let's go on the stall. of any of you ever. In a public place. Not Sex. Not like full on sex, not not in a stall not penetrated. Zach has sack has sex quiet. No, com, well, how are we defining public? Place. Yeah I mean I have to well, what do you? What do you mean by that like are. You fucked in a bar. No car. Marzilli. Cars it wasn't like in my driveway. It was it wasn't a public. You've never done that but fair enough I mean if I felt in a car. It's not the. Same. That's the wild. Way I do I have a memory? We did it in a public place once a long time ago. When we saw the Beatles cover band. So good goal. When we do? The bathroom. No. No like. Oh i. Remember we were really. In debt this was so That was a great show that was when I I just moved to Israel. and. Here comes the Sun I guess. We win the bathroom and did something something there was full The home base. I think normally would have been really gross, but we could drunk I guess I think that's why you have sex public. Yeah. No it wasn't real conflict. I mean, there was this door was closed and it was it was a public. Yeah. Embar in what are Zach what you're? Going I, mean I. The car I mean on a car. I guess we're determining that that doesn't count. I guess woods woods some woods. What was it like a camping scenario? Where's it? Like a people were hiking? Were you in a tent? It was at night and it was just kind of go do this. On the earth because just bones on earth. Ape. Style just. All ended and it's pretty that's pretty epic. I actually I remember now I'd totally forgotten about this, but in high school in one of the practice rooms of. Of the The band, the Music Department or whatever.

So you less than twenty one. Okay. So is on that Not. Because I was. How does that make sense 'cause I maybe my years are all mixed up because I went to call eighteen. and. Then, I must have dated her like my freshmen, Sophomore Junior. Year. And then you came right when I was getting out of college, right? The numbers don't make sense because those like five both an extra year. No. Yeah. That's. that. Would mean if I want when I was eighteen that I would have been twenty three when you came. Which makes sense I think Oh, I think. Yes. Yes. Because you were twenty one when we met. Time, past Tap that until I was twenty three. anyways this so We're supposed to as playing trombone. Yes. That's a pretty good news for everybody I. Think I knew that but I just think it's interesting mentioned players a marching band kid can we get a trombone Solo? I do still own trombone.

Eating seen is ABC world news tonight. Thanks for joining us on this Sunday. I'm Tom Llamas. And we begin with the deadly winter storm after hammering the planes and the Great Lakes now battering the northeast and wingding treacherous driving on the roads. This SUV skidding off the road in Dayton, Ohio. A car narrowly missing a house on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, even the snowplough falling over on a steep street.

Nato tearing through this Alabama town the roof of this church ripped off by winds up to one hundred thirty miles per hour. I mean, just that quick. And it was everything you look up and everything's gone. And as millions of people struggle to clean up or dig out that brutal Arctic air mass pushing in with freezing bitterly cold temperatures. All right. Stephanie Ramos joins us live. Now. The snow is moving out, but crews are working around the clock. As this dangerous flash freeze starts to move in. Absolutely. Tom about fourteen inches of snow fell here. In Albany, crews are working nonstop to clear the roads before the temperature drops in terms of the snow into dangerous ice, the wind chill expected to drop below zero across the northeast, Tom and on that point wanna get to Sam champion right now. He's in central park tracking. It all Sam the temperatures already starting to drop where you are. How extraordinary is cold? I think very Tom and for two reasons really its scope in the fact that it goes from the Great Lakes into the northeast and well down into the mid Atlantic. But also the kind of wind chills were talking about twenty below thirty below. It's dangerous to be outside for a long. Time. Let's get to the maps and show everybody what they're in for the door is now open for this Arctic air drop all the way into the deep south, really. And it's all behind this storm in the northeast this to blow out and cities like DC dropped twenty seven degrees in the last six hours are wind chill here in the park is now three degrees. Temperatures will plummet overnight. Take a look at these Lowe's. Eight in Philadelphia fourteen in Washington DC sixteen in Raleigh. And you wanna be impressed. Take a look at these wind chills. We are talking about wind chills. Twenty four below twenty two below ten below in Philadelphia, fourteen below in Pittsburgh and here in New York City, by the way, Tom the wind chills will be below zero for twenty four hour straight. At least Tom Sammy Senator earlier very dangerous cold out there saying thank you. We do move on to a major headline to government shutdown and the TSA seen so many workers are now calling out because a financial issues. The agency says they are now in unchartered territory there issuing a warning about the impact at major airports. And on day. Thirty the standoff, the Democrats have already said no deal to President Trump's latest offer ABC's. Lana Zak is at Reagan national outside of Washington tonight. The TSA telling ABC news the agency is now an uncharted territory as the number of employees callouts keep increasing because of the government shutdown now in date thirty TSA implementing contingency plans trying to avoid scenes like these in Atlanta last week from repeating themselves in even more airports is demoralizing because you go to work. And you expect, you know, pay for for more than deal wake up and you bend county on Saturday. Eight percent of all TSA employees do not show up for work mostly for financial reasons hitting hard as many of the nation's largest airports, like New York's JFK and Chicago's O'Hare. Could I go paycheck? It's pretty much. I'm like, no man's land. The hardships faced by TSA agents, an echo of the nearly eight hundred thousand federal workers at agencies like the coastguard secret service FDA either furloughed or working without pay this weekend. President Trump offering what he calls a reasonable compromise to end the shutdown extending protections for some undocumented immigrants for three years in exchange for five point seven billion dollars for his border wall. But house speaker Nancy Pelosi calling the offer a non starter slamming it for not including a permanent solution for dreamers. And while the fight stretches on the TSA vowing that they will not compromise security standards. We can't expect TSE's folks to be indentured servants. They've shown tremendous resilience. But this can't continue at a certain point in time. Maybe a couple of weeks from now I expect to see the scouts increase and tell things go exponential. And that's going to be a shutdown of the US airline system. Zag joins us now live from Reagan national airport. Lana the TSA, Saint even more lanes could be closed in some of the nation's biggest airports, that's a real concern here. Tom already the TSA has had to close down checkpoints in Baltimore Miami. And Houston airports previously, and they warn us that if the shutdown stretches until February I it could have a compounding effect as these unpaid workers are facing the reality of rent mortgage, payments and other bills, Tom. Lana Zak for us tonight of thank you also out of Washington tonight. President Trump's personal lawyer religious Yanni fighting back tonight against that disputed. Buzzfeed news report that alleged the president counsel Michael Cohen to lie to congress about a Trump Tower project in Moscow Giuliani said the two of them might have talked about his testimony ahead of. Time ABC's David Wright is at the White House today. The president's lawyer insisted his client never ordered his previous lawyer to lie to congress about negotiations to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow, categorically, I can tell you his council to Michael Cohen throughout that entire period. Was tell the truth that issue is at the heart of a disputed report by BuzzFeed news that claimed the special counsel has evidence. President Trump personally directed. Michael Cohen to lie to congress special counsel's office made a rare public denial of the BuzzFeed report the White House disputes it as well today. Rudy Giuliani left open the possibility that Trump may have spoken to Cohen about his testimony. But said Trump didn't even hint Cohen should lie. It's not possible. The president left the conversation thinking, well, this is what the boss wants me to say the boss wants me not possible Cohen told congress negotiations over Trump Tower Moscow ended in January. 2016 before the two thousand sixteen presidential primaries. But later admitted that was a lie in his guilty. Plea Cohen said the negotiations over the Moscow property continued as late as June two thousand sixteen when Trump was the presumptive GOP nominee Giuliani has even suggested negotiations may have gone on even longer. According to the answer that he gave it would have covered all the way up to November of covered on November twenty sixteen Democrats plan to question Cohen next month about his false testimony. And about what instructions if any he had from his client, if anyone was instructing whether it was the president or other people affiliated with the White House or the Trump organization encouraging a witness to lie we need to know about it. We'll makers will have their opportunity to get answers from co in February seventh. That's when he's due to appear before the house oversight committee. The Senate may also wanna bring him back in for questioning. But after that he's headed to prison a three year sentence on this and other crimes Tom gave it right at the White House for us. David.

My belt offered largest this cutting woods or the the little force out in the poorest alker nas and cord pulse that fascination rose appreciation for did not really Always thought of them. I go to the local newsstand. Magazines speak up reveal about them all the knife articles of the ads in the back. All the knives and learn about companies Back then the hot brands were without almar. Some of the brands such as benchmark puts out very fond of. we'll have alan's and is netflix. As as an adult some at a little more discretionary income. I was able to finally by a lot of those kids. So let me show you. This benchmark roelofs decided with the clever in the whole world. You push back in the back in world. Ablaze forward watching. That's an example of some of the things that really drew. My interest in the way knives are being modelled. It was real position. Time in the eighties. Saw interesting outs I remember the first concept of thumbed this or thumb stud were called the flipping the It sounds familiar. But i might be mistaking that with the clip. It's the decider designs.

This is that allows you to open your buck. One ten very similar kinda. Yeah absolutely no use a line. Lots hung outs of the more common place of a friend of mine.

Now he was actually burst. But it's so functioned operas right and it probably had a tab that sat quite proud of the of the liner of a number of those old liner locks it so obtrusive and now to our tactical sensibility are hard you sensibility. It would be too much in the way of my clothes on us but yeah of beautiful innovation. Yeah so it's a great rich history of of where one pin raising grow up your needs. We were outdoors crossing whatever Fishing hunting camping out nice. Couldn't get by without one so you really learn from early age On the need the polity and the borough vercel cool be older workers something civilization assignment which was really my next day for me is all the multiple tools hydrologic will let. Let me ask you this. So i i know you and contacted you because of your your knife involvement the denies you design and have made that that have left quite an impact of. But i know you do other gear. How does how does knife Fit into the constellation of all your ears at the main thing or is it just another one of the products. That's that's really great pressure. Bob because this knives are alibaba. The industry is a month on seven on the not a time job which served on and gearhead even when i was a kid wherever five time of a local sworn of this tour. I was always very particular. My jacket on one ground were not a bright color I try to a mom so long.

And it had a flat cash raji any market and back in one hundred fifty bus even back then the big money on a lot of money and and gone from there off the next night that cima some gerbers were have you and got to a point where my interest in objects flashlights boulders maiden that got a license of the business or log. Who's also grew woodworking burns. You when we go back and use the same result license in oakland out for the couple of brats as an era my my plan was the by sulina sub on from a cell. No getting irving keeping hamid going. Yeah all back on the. Were you know that much about it pretty much. Is it a woodshop. What bush's cheaters. But my roommate Ee was An it guy burbank downtown and secure chuckles out. If you ever need to look up something search something. Who's this on the laptop the search engine and type in any word more or what. It'll pope all results okay. I didn't quite get it ahead around the words and then you had your list of things for the pulled up the search. That's me was probably awakening. The company i have in regards to. I think are actually start. Planning were trying to start a business but museum. Internet was a place for commerce retail. You know back. In those days you have a substantial amount of invested rental brick and mortar rental this. She didn't qualify commercials and then setting up hog word registers business plan alone all that stuff about stop. Not just the you know one person who has a fondness for for year knives and one sharing it and selling it on enjoy the other rewards if you will by being able to keep this up myself so i went about weekends your books for the book on its how to build a website and water website up in about two weeks in it.

This i figured out and discover all worries a knife Bruce or not on there and realize your whole lot of people that have similar interests shared A great fondness of items learn a lot information largely distance feel. Ats certain ford. Never heard of it in the back then was four forty seat. That's pretty much all us eight. And the i knew. I was by selling knives. The full time job. I had ariza full wars six months. After this complete and sabotage in world was never rate employees. rose like rotating rushing from. Yes oh that's smart but The russian requires the stock war. Right immersive shoot for me and the. Yeah the jumped in both keepers so triple designed tad. The dauntless is a legendary knife. Tell me first of all of First of all what triple out design was when you when he founded it at what you intended with it and then tell me. A little bit about the dauntless concept knife as i call it whatever. That's just my one a concept behind it i want you to tell me about it does and triple lock zone. The name itself the regional For the business loan was based on the grade of steel wool. Using finishing material would still Lot is through zeros. Which insurgency awards as one step before the final four Hanes business so. It is spoken materials that i use rivers familiar with chills. I left to work with you. Know my background was mostly from Foundry were casting bronze aluminum. Sober asked years nor not in the metal world and selective is paladin the sound of of those terms from that realm of naked fabricating these furniture useful for What happened in home and going with ball. Question was who i was i was asking about. Triple a. design. What the concept was behind the company when it and then. Tell me about the dauntless or any of that so for a lot. Zayn board Gin selling offering a very curated line of knives. I in production is I set up accounts with a multi early on Bench me These are the big new brad. Brands back I also had a access to really unique pieces was feel put one map so i happen. Known a formative zeal zam cisco five guy and we were hanging out one day and a patrick. We're talking about knives. Obviously let me share. My collection brings out cobol of handmade original amerson. Not for talking it was. I don't necessarily we're really but he hadn't since he used them and he was a civilian heart where we have a need for these. Why don't you just take them all again. You're credited store and buy stuff you when i see something so. He was really more than a marriage. Folders marketaxess circular. But i was left with his knives that i'm pretty cool. What november schools I didn't know that much about his schwab of his models. But when i did it was really just dumb. Luck marlon myself sneezing. Amazing chose is block like the garage made and complete handy spat working slow hand ground early ernest. The the model the was not as commander suits might. The model instance remind marijuana before that in the folder. I mean we're talking like really choice is here and photograph those knives. Put them up on the on the website. And i think it really just helped bring in. At that point it was a solo fair market value. I bought and it turns out that most people of frigging times as much. You know what. I got a run out of the walk out with one out of this. You have this life appreciate for what it is and it will snowball from wall building relationship custom makers and being some of wipe. Nathan's it led me to the point. Where i'm now going to start thinking about design simone products. After six months. I have a particular static. I rule live love the coolest purpose driven attributes materials with the machines. What flutes merlin lines campers so. Thoughtless maliki was a consequence about appreciation. Something that was purpose. Urban in superfluous details recent tribe swell. We're you know overly done grind minds. And i just perdition fashioned sphere point lovers routes than he seem high precision barrel Hans tools like that aesthetic slows. Its intentions right. It's even better in the sat down each paper and a pencil and sketched out with vesey pornography. The folder was reflecting a lot of things lights in the world personally and I also designed in such a way with rations cussing acres of this digital blakich this way is easier asymmetrical handle will blades sits. You know without without coq up. All those engineering considerations will share me by crossing law makers helped me understand. It took snake not to state A good-looking mouth but when it actually works and the dumbest was reflecting at the time of all those considerations as well as my ticket design winch. That's zayn language carried on rock walls as yet it carries through obviously through the invictus and through the s. Sat through all three of those but a so the concept The dauntless concept taken further is And correct me. Well fill this in for me. But you have of many famous designers and makers night makers. Doing their interpretation of the dauntless or is it their interpretation of your original design is at their interpretation of of the of the factors. You lay out For the design. How does that work so it was. It was being somebody who was familiar with handling objects and tools. I was not enough. Did not to make a nice not have naked night. But i had delicious not naked and i sketch on paper came up to a point where i felt was final version of it and does started with around to my contacts in the customized world as i would love to have this nate and a nager achieve that objective for me in a very high level And also as a business person that it's hon. I was not in a position to five. I need free by way beginning. Ten twenty five. He's nigger really. Yes i felt the best in quality of nate and assert nigger voice into a core baseline which bombs design. They could change the screen size. The bolster make a full scale. That scale slight variations will ground. Were wards rounded. It was so recognizable as thoughtless but it was which is great writing and people had options. Which boss it's like. The great american songbook billie holiday sings it differently than frank sinatra. Who sings yet so you had a. I mean it's really a who's who of of knife. Makers who have made their versions. Were talking about the hawks Gee-gee hopper a hinderer. Were talking. I mean i mean now i don't have them directly. I know you've had curb rambert until some of the first ones. I mean so so long. I can't remember how how do have them make you. Have you have these guys doing their own design of this knife and the special election of it. How many do you have. How many have made. Typically i would ask for a comfortable range was i would ask up. The point typically gets hand nagin twenty. Wow so those are out there. Those are out there. I can't what they would. They fetch on the secondary market across like a hinder tatters. That we'll be ones are probably on those visit. Gentlemen insulate work. Where on his. Every single one for me was just immaculate. Ever piece to see the rate air ship Single tasty made super smooth on your beautiful make less so your original. I want to talk about the year design language. So at looking at the dauntless your original design you don't happen have worn directly in front of religion. I don't i actually like life on you. Sell them or sell them young people that really loved them. I i really love them to see now. I'm getting but but when you look at that. Original design drop point with a full finger. Choi l- you've got a sort of a neutral handle With the three fuller's in the handle and the united and a fuller in the blade. I think in saber grind just a beautiful like really a beautifully simply designed knife and in some ways Not exactly on paper. My cup of tea but i have always been in. Love with the dauntless. I'm not so much a drop point guy. I don't know it's it's it's shallow aesthetics on my butt but but your drop went and end the invictus so there's a straight line now. I wanna talk about permits design. Works is which is a company you had up now And i'm not sure if it's your main cub you got to you. Got terrains recency. Five per miki's design works and and and both are just you know creating some pretty fantastic. Not the invictus design is really kind of it's a cousin or a relative you can see the design dna. From from the from the dauntless about the invictus. it took the knife world by storm. And it has a bunch of innovations a brand new one incidentally Tell me a bit about that. So you know in the world of was awed being a designer east thing that creates under whatever particular brand working for where my case all You know it's it's a specific. It details naked. Very singular as a finished zahn and were product but the dna like mentioned on the on. Its now where on the father of these different brands. And were objects. And as you progress in procreate. Your ideas Each is neat I i knew the things about the dallas. I do previously volvo. I'll learn more about russian abilities engineering capabilities. I should learn how to make nuys of circle back that in parentheses. Five out of better idea. Oxygen another folder that really net assets. I love the sooner that in knives one of my favorite is as a kid was the was the site fairburn joumana dagger reports. It's not possible for us. You know mexico does the media to balance and i love that. Symmetry aggregate stuff was all route and being some warmth. So you know coming up to the this. I'll certainly could retread dollars along with of the Data's upper child childhood. The pride you happy you know but also as who's gonna live relationships of a workout in stock and things in dense marriages So we're will vic this salova fuller's those muslim my rifle barrels on handle that i have and Rule s i have enough knowledge in design fabrication achieve a handle. That was mexico's absolute importance. Me is being able to achieve a higher goal. Aesthetically as well as negro work. So i will show you an addict. This particular worked on literally for six years so so he doesn't for media started about six years ago one of the very first products or objects. Nate was a personal design But i started out to do this. I wanna do this. It's never been done before. Where so rare or infrequently done it. Really make in terms of the design as well as fabricate specialist six and a half years later were finally able to release this with a mind numbers with by the end of this year and this is victim that was named so what's unique about this is classic nice ulcer model receiver five a big fan of. It's a you know it's it's designed detail in many things everywhere but now it's put it into something else A signature look Got spear point blade with a fuller before goes back to when i was a ten year old. Hit getting our first nine for my dad had a blood group. Agnone not always stuck with me. I was was a cool detail. But this is what's unique bob. This knife a solid blah biking but people call referred to as integral fame a lot and we finally able to go the first faction worked with synopsys. The we're still waiting for coma to probably we're on our or faxing and these guys just phenomenal job interpreting on shaking out on the chief in this life. I'll be honest and say that a lot stabiliser is also cool will detail i think most firms don't probably need it. I never heard anyone over extending the knife is probably happen under duress not a wide but to answer customer desires in the waas. It's on barons is incredibly smooth ceramic parents. We have kogi tell which was like the was in the lab and things fathers By one propeller head you know a consideration of but also as a fox. You ever have dropped dark. And i i've actually done gone backpacking lean trail and we're fumbling with something drop crap work for some so. It's actually okay. Let me ask you this. I'm sorry before you allow you to go on. Are you telling me now that That permit the design works is going to be quitting out in integral invictus. Yes okay our list. That was something that you may yourself in. Its but no. This is something that's coming out. It took you four factories to get to where you get it out. I mean what are what are the Where the main challenges of making integral integral folder. You have to have a very well. Rounded very competent machine shop mulkey asses. Cnc's obviously a summer program them run them and keep the collinses tight zooey. It's pretty tough to have everyone's fit in their one piece requires an everything made distance superclub. Tolerances stole a pair mounted mean. Yeah i could be. The owned. barbara do is in costs a lot and it was quite a bit. Were more than anybody anticipated. But we have them coming on. This'll be a really rates sort of southern ones top or production and this is a design version. Obviously the invictus come out from premisses while assists and five years a parentheses fiber. It's essential same but there's no lock bar stabilizer on it and it's a stanford faces sandwich design. That wouldn't need it. It's a both lock right. I mean it's got a lab. Yes la okay. You're now you're showing the invictus made by recency train through sixty five Tell listeners viewers. What is terrain three sixty five. And what's your main goal with that rain for sixty five is project that Started out with my long term friend Associate in industries. Michael amendment nice show assigned his knives his grinder. Great thousands who About a bunch of stable the resell Company and you Super nice over the years. I disorder samer a semi regular basis. But one summer low kicking around in my mum. Come down to my house wrong. How warm valley distressing interesting. Learn how to make knives. I'll teach jose why not so. I took some time off. Rhode island was houses workshop. He taught me how to make. Dovetail bolstered liner wa grandma. Blades sat there. Rallied soup-to-nuts. Both the folder. And this live in that time. I stand down there with him. A learn how to make mas. I had a really much much better sense than hobbies. Were how could be jumping up all night. Very diligent nick nice But yet fast forward against in warriors might seem sin show and tell me about this chiro that he was trying to develop That was lifestyle. I heard of her like heard of how ever is process and baugh. The foundry work the same kind of injured at coal ball. Iron free rushed through. Because there's no argument to the heading yet but a good cutting edge is you didn't roll the sheet for baugh. Crushing that injured. Hersal is the christmas shropshire that needs are in cobalt different so applebee's festivals this This pursued this new material is not an excellent zodda sow and not not the grind of just to as nigger but let's talk about getting this to production level and that's how prank was born. It's aided the research and the lead way on getting the material words day or his design. Input input my knowledge ecommerce We were able to put brand. Who co founders of roper sixty five we bring our strengths of the brands Small brand literally out of a garage snow. You know many ways. We are making knives with the primary objective of hiding edge troll. That is going to be virtually rust her so any fold of that. We have with the destination. At oppor the sds. At the samper altering land or underwater slipped onset we did a stainless parts. So one hundred cents the outer the toy La one hundred cents fares free so that doesn't have aids as nation but the sds at These are knives that not have a single of barras. This is an interesting model. That's actually herbert under. Pw but in see here nicole reprennent. Linda carter universal. So i wanted to tell you this before. We started rolling in then. I decided i'd just wait but i'm i'm put a little moratorium on my knife. Buying for the month of november. I call it not no new nice november and during this time i'm reflecting on what i have what i want to get rid of them kind of fat and what i wanna get next and i've been I've been kind of out of the Tactical folder for about. Maybe three or four months. I've been. I've been more into slipped trying to but i feel myself coming back towards the tactical folder and one of the main reasons. Say one of the three main reasons is your train. Three sixty five s. eighteen. The you just help us to me. That is a gorgeous or just knife it and it's sometimes called a shoot knife i think because it's it's It's it takes. Its inspiration from a loveless. Oh canada i mean i think my my all time old rail when i was in i went to a nice show. You know i'm like dad. You take them through my show like our humored gave me a free bus you get a ticket inside just literally akin ban you know i was seeing this amazing i. This was a loveless said. And this guy who saw it and thought it was cool hunter. Right option was was. This schubert was developed for a particular purpose. It's all around the wilderness that can cut shoot winds dropping behind clandestine operation and a lot of us. You know y sharp edge general ham the folder for them but in all these different purpose driven consideration for why. It's not as a huge night right. Four inch uh votes ease. The wheel will of the point from whatever web gear you had on was very friendly around the camp site for nato feather stink or you know. Her parents linger cutting one power corp for a shelter at some point It was just a very multi-use multifaceted and that fascination with that pilot the duty of acid is on itself is never left so a couple years back two years thinking about you know. I've done the of loved waiters. Might now i wanna go back to some of the things that are leaked gotten interested in this birthplace in one of those syncing shimmer. Unlike i wanna turn that shit back before this. I'm cheri or net folder carrying a pocket. Put it up. You know beiber. I just really love the way. It came out You know obviously. I mostly carbon boxes of yet. But i take about won't get with me on wall around. Can't kitchen cut butter. Whenever cutting comes up. I have to admit i've i've watched in rewatch it. There are only a couple of videos at this point on youtube of it. And i've watched us lacey diocese of that knife kind of Kind of obsessively number of times so yeah And i love of alumina thumbs down on that one too. He's such a cool touch. So i mean i really. I think it's an interesting idea to take to take a knife that was so had so much to do with the inspiration. You got for going into this in the first place in the love you got from here originally like the shoot nice and turning it into something folding that you could carry. It's kind of you know kind of parallel to my love of the bowie knife. In how you get you know a number different folding knives. Knife options that sort of well mimic the the bowie in a folding version. I think Quick port bleed is such a unique looking blade and for me. It's very put sexually margin by a lot of i've seen some of the variations of use. Natan five nice. Have very exaggerated Yes yes distinct lot. So it was essential. American platter or zion. The sheep is one of them and it's probably been ways. The river of the original bone but the habit is a folder Being able to use it daily at really unhappy came out in a dozen personally driven. By senate's i really enjoy. The weight looks yet retail I would say this about the invictus and in the sds is that their handles are just as attractive as the blades and vice versa. If we're talking sheer aesthetics. Which i did quite a bit but also the handle looks so comfortable useful and You know it's not strong. Arming your fingers. Any position and yet it's giving you a lot of grit with a single finger finger toil and then with the With the i find that Looting or or fluting on the side of vollers on the side of the handle make really great no that that's or his uncle so okay you've done a lot. You've had a huge impact in the gear and knife world Since the late nineties You know tad triple designed for use design. Were strange sixty five not to mention you've had a lot of collaborations with protects your and others Where do you plan to take your efforts in the future I see you a by the time you retire having several more companies it. What kind of stuff do you look to the tackle. So you know as as someone who This sort of You know in your world is most often. Every nate are things that i personally use myself so there is a very self directed motivation for a lot of my products and again going back to my childhood. Your certain things that are two or relied on as things that you have a nice backpack on a gig jacket. You had those things get by most of the four seasons that your professor broken and living and let's stop with higher life in being able to make those kinds of products with my sensibilities experiences are. Are these extra partisan sleeves on this dude that on because it does. This hadn't certain organizes almost a big fantasy. Simonize of our remind primary folder Look i always carry a small. You know it's the so handy for those little things. Polar can't and see executive editor. Yeah on many swiss go. Oh yeah yeah on. The as i love these beautiful grounds for happens place now. Use it to open up a kim. war About capsule snapped but swiss army knife. One bus all boston's top. We'll supplements i been talking about A lot about camp knives the old school camp knives and how they they've been sort of replaced. I love them yen. How they've been sort of replaced in and rightfully so to a great extent by the swiss army knife. Swiss army knives get a lot more tools in there. It's a little more modern. You get allow tools that you might find more useful in a more urban or modern lifestyle. But i love those knives. Sorry i had to interrupt with that but but here here's an observation that it just sort of occurs to me and i guess i sort of knew this but now just in talking to you. It's coming evident. It's like your your iran 's are have an air exclusivity to them In their sort of limit limited. You know what i'm saying like and and to me that makes that makes them desirable. There's they're not. We don't have a market awash in community design work products. So when you see one it's like. Ooh it's like the same thing. When i saw the sds ats like. Oh my god. That's part of me. Presser back headed with teacher. Projects quote samples. Sharia hone of Know i didn't go business. School nevada business last month highlight outcome for money. No it's everything.

Valued kind of my life which vintage motorcycle. I love that by outta value. A sold it now couple grants and started on that you know litter that hundred bucks into a ultimately a much larger size company but The house of the self funding nature of its Berman was money is among was pretty much the cash over the last ten years And variety good. iq means of. I have a lot of ed's milwaukee bosses by. I'm not. I'm not just iraq. Hayek they can focus all of one type of product park while i do a para e sta impact some bags a them all the perks the visa language and i can lead sink. Our teeth into observes designing and each one requires a great deal of source. Pablo so for me to be able to use all those things. In that wide breath products have to allocate budget. Which was i can't make thousands and thousands of any one thing all of my resources. I have the eagles spread it amongst a great many things and that's always been a academic straits over doing super large enough nuts and it's also whiskey might right. It's like you know what i believe. This three handled bali going to be the next day thing and you know thousand and producing thousands and thousands and your remodeled thousand is just stupidest idea of and you're done your host so it's possible considerations So that's why there is honesty not a ton of anything that i make because i have to allocate it spread it over a wider variety of goods but also a upside. That is that you could spend the extra time in parent upper in in achieving higher quality. Make and what we do You know i. As as human beings as as men we also try to being. Alfred somewhat dislike cutting. It's it's a part of who we are and the voice that retried push this sort of irked. Putter mass-produce yes. They have their place in society by on sales are badly. Nobody watches gray cars during the same brown apartment number. It you want something that seeks he you then he should stand up. That's why this model listens in. Were also most of the time we have the ability in something on our own merce own taser lice shirt with others so a target philosophical circle the products and have the ability to purchase an object mature. They want the dismissal in as much as they feel they are in south africa. You know come see a rollable with difficult chain but looking of verifying pot never been an objective is a academic outcome around capitol and the number of parts of the do as well as just a commitment by the committee number of really high level pins one big thing which also get quite dull because But back to what we're working on you know i.

Even if you don't have the the bolster so what we're looking at rottweilers wanna try to newer models as opposed to navy recycling. Someone's advert dot which it's this is exactly. Why might vase.

Both coasts tonight Seattle under a rare amount of snow. The most no actually in February in seventy years with more on the way, and in Portland, a driver in an SUV trapped by tanker that skidded on an icy bridge, and your Claire Wisconsin a horrific multi car accident on I ninety four look at all those cars the forecast in a moment. But first ABC senior meteorologist rob Marciano with the images still coming in old man winter working overtime tonight with several storms hitting the country. One pummeling the west with snow ice and win with two more storms in the pipeline. Washington state rushing to recover from a record setting snowfall nearly eleven inches in Seattle. So far this month the most now the normally mild emerald city has seen in seventy years. The state turned into skating rinks while the driver of this car needed to be rescued from the drifts sixty mile per hour. Winds toppling trees just north of Seattle knocking out power to over one hundred and forty thousand and one point Portland also struggling after nearly five inches of snow. Their vehicles going nowhere on some icy roads, tow ropes getting a workout moving east. It's winter whiplash wild swings in temperature's leaving this entire community in Illinois. Take denies these cars. Maroon in floodwater that melted. And then refroze, and it was a blast of snow triggering this multi car pileup on I eighty four narrow Claire ahead of a major winter storm threatening millions from the midwest all the way to New England as we start the workweek. All right. Rob Marciano joins us now from a very chilly central park. And rob a new storm on the way causing trouble for the major cities of the northeast yet. I one Tom is the weaker one of it's already causing problems across the Great Lakes. I'll in through Pittsburgh by tomorrow morning. DC Baltimore Philly. I think you've got problems with the morning rush in the form of sleep freezing rain and some snow and then by the time we get towards a tomorrow night into Tuesday.

Now, suspected of murdering his own mother. He was set to report to prison for an earlier conviction. Asking for time to get his affairs in order. Instead, it appears use that time to plot in escape, here's ABC's area. Russia tonight, this surveillance image a clue in the urgent nation. Wiedeman hunt for disbar, Georgia attorney now considered an armed and dangerous killer. Authorities say the photo last shows Richard merit at a gas station outside Atlanta merit failing to turn himself into jail. February I serve a fifteen year sentence for stealing from his clients.

This former client who testified against merit wishing to remain anonymous for safety now fearing he could be out for revenge. Powering is in danger. According to the Cobb County DA merit was allowed to wear an ankle monitor and given two weeks to get his affairs in order because there was no evidence to suggest a threat of violence, the DA saying merit resided with his mother for a year without incident merit cutting off that ankle monitor certainly need to be held accountable for the brutal murder of our mother and Tom Barrett is now charged with murder if convicted at thirty say he could face the death penalty. Tom burial. Thank you. Let's sort sorta politics now negotiators in congress work into a Vert another government shutdown. They say talk. Our stalled the difference is growing over money for the president's wall and over how undocumented immigrants we'll be detained. The two sides have four days to hammer out a deal. ABC's Tara Palmeri on the chances that will happen. Just four days until the government runs out of money. And tonight, the president's chief of staff warning, we could be heading towards a second shutdown, and you cannot take a shutdown off the table bipartisan group of lawmakers at an impasse over the number of beds available to undocumented immigrants arrested by ice without enough beds. They would not be able to detain thousands. Not confident we're going to get there. I think he's the next twenty four hours are crucial. We could close some deals, but they've got to be good to secure our borders, the president venting that lawmakers don't seem to be getting anywhere near his five point seven billion dollar demand for border wall tweeting they're offering very little money for the desperately needed border wall. Malini conceding that they're ready to accept less. But still build a wall. What you probably sees the president say. Yeah. Okay. And then I'll go find the. Someplace else lawmakers to unveil a deal on Monday, those hopes seemingly dashed the numbers are all over the place. I think the big problem here is this has become pretty much an ego negotiation. This really isn't over substance eight hundred thousand federal workers hanging in the balance after the longest shutdown in US history that saw unprecedented TSA sick outs and airports on the verge of melting down seeing another shutdown just a couple of days away on the horizon. I think is scary for anybody. Tara, Tara joins us, live and tear. I know you've been talking to your sources both at the White House on Capitol Hill, and those sources telling you about the negotiations now that it seems that both sides are further from a deal than they were last week. That's right. Tom talk seem to have stalled. But there's some hope that lawmakers in this conference could resume talks as soon as tonight tomorrow, the president has the border for the second time since the budget battle began just a few hours ago. He tweeted that he could legally declare a national emergency to bypass congress and build the wall himself, Tom. I'm Tara Palmer for us. Tara. Thank you end. The feel the presidential hopefuls is a little more crowded tonight. Minnesota's democratic Senator Amy klobuchar announcing her bid during a snowstorm in Minneapolis. Look at that promising that as president. She will say what she thinks and focus on getting things done. But she's already responding to report criticism that she mistreats her staff admitting she can be tough. But saying that many of her staff have been with her for years next your money. It's taxis in the filing due April fifteenth, we'll be the first full year of the sweeping Republican tax overhaul. But the first numbers from the IRS show that refunds are smaller. This year down eight percent, the promise was that nearly everyone would do better. So what's going on ABC's? Kenneth Moton reporting on your money tonight shock and anger from early tax filers, those refunds not as big as they had hoped or not coming at all. Israeli wasn't a tax cut for me. The IRS reports the average refund for the first week of filing down eight percent compared to the same time last year. It appears the biggest reasons changes in deductions under President Trump's new tax law. And a nonpartisan government watchdog says for more than thirty million Americans didn't withhold enough from paychecks unfortunate result of that is that shortfall has to be made up at some point. And that point is when you file your tax return frustrated filers taking to Twitter to complain one person asking will someone make my tax returns. Great again, South Carolina, nonprofit consultant Eva, super satis single, no children. Her pay jumped one thousand dollars in two thousand eighteen new changes to her withholdings last year's refund. Nine hundred dollars this year.

And we just heard Kenneth Bowen joins us live on set, and Kenneth you have some. Tips for people who are going through this right now, I do Tom. They should try to shake off those frustrations first. And then second if your refund is smaller or you actually, oh this year tax experts say tax payers to take the time and work with your employer to withhold more taxes from their paychecks, Tom.

Mnuchin said he would be there even as high profile executives in media companies pulled out amid claims from Turkish officials that the Saudis ordered and carried out the murder of Jamal kashogi Mnuchin reversal marks the first reproach of this on east by the Trump administer. Ration- Emily row, ABC news, Washington, and President Trump on social media this week. Denying any personal business ties with the Saudis says, we hear from ABC news, chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, the president, tweeted quote for the record. I have no financial interest in Saudi Arabia, but just three years ago, he said this Saudi Arabia, and I get along great with all of they buy apartments for me. Spend forty million fifty million supposed to dislike him. I like him very much over the years. The Saudi's have invested in several major Trump projects in nineteen Ninety-one. They bought his yacht four years later, a Saudi prince was part of a group that bought Trump's plaza hotel in two thousand one. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia reportedly bought an entire floor of Trump world tower in New York. And since he was elected, the Saudis of spent lavishly at Trump properties including dropping nearly two hundred seventy thousand dollars last year at the president wash. Into no tell near the White House President Trump at a rally in Montana this week, stumping for a congressman who assaulted a reporter. Again, here's ABC's Emily row Republican, congressman, Greg, Gianforte apologize for body slamming a reporter last year, but now President Trump seeming to make light of the misdemeanor assault at a campaign rally, Thursday night. Body slam. Arne newspaper, which that reporter works for now warning that in the aftermath of Jamal kashogi possible murder. The president's comments could invite assaults on journalists across the world. I'm willing to send the military to defend our southern border necessarily all because of the illegal immigration onslaught brought by the Democrats. Also at that Montana rally, the president threatening to close the southern border of Mexico doesn't do more to stop thousands of Central American migrants heading north Mexican government. Now, saying it will accept migrants requesting asylum, their ABC's Mary, Bruce with more Trump whipping up his supporter. Just a caravan of migrants from Honduras, make their way to the US more than three thousand people. Fleeing violence in poverty brought my caused. Because I have created such an incredible economy. I have created so many jobs. This country with you so great that everybody wants to come in. So they're all pouring in or trying to Bank at the White House. The issue reached a boiling point, Thursday, sparking explosive, shouting match between chief of staff. John Kelly, national security adviser, John Bolton, the two men, cursing at each other outside the Oval Office. In a statement, prince secretary, Sarah Sanders says, while we are passionate about solving the issue of legal immigration, we are not angry at one another. The administration's frustrated that their policies have not discouraged migrants from flowing into the US. A record. Number of families have been apprehended at border crossings up nearly forty percent this summer with the midterm elections. Now, just two weeks away. Trump's made clear. He thinks immigration excites his base and is good. Politics tweeting great midterm issue for Republicans, get rid of the fat of the waste, and I'm sure you can do it. I'm sure everybody to stable can do. That's the president this week, asking his cabinet members. To cut their spending by at least five percent. The request coming days afterward of a ballooning, federal budget deficit more from ABC's alley. Rogin on Capitol Hill is a heavy lift in any year, especially one in which the deficit is already up seventeen percent. Over the previous year. It's the largest annual deficit in six years, and it definitely comes after the administration pledged that their tax cuts would in fact, reduce the deficit Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin made that pledge. And of course, this demonstrates just the opposite. The so grateful we're able the, we have the ability for someone else. I feel hopeless, like four them, like what nothing I do enough volunteers in Panama City, Florida, delivering food to people with no running water power or homes after hurricane, Michael swept through the panhandle last week. Many victims still awaiting federal help President Trump touring the wreckage of the deadly storm. As we hear from ABC's Lana Zak President Trump praised first responders as you touchdown in an area ravaged by hurricane Michael, doing more than anybody would have ever done. Ted probably hasn't been hits like this. Certainly not very often. The president and first lady were on the ground in Florida. Viewing the devastation from the category, four hurricane, which obliterated entire neighborhoods are the believed I've seen pictures, but it's hard to believe that it was onto Georgia where the president met with Red Cross volunteers in an earlier interview with sixty minutes. Mr. Trump was asked if witne. Missing natural disasters as commander in chief informed his perspective on climate change. You don't know whether or not that would have happened with without man. I'm not denying climate change, but it could very well go back the president this week, went around in court against adult film actress. Stormy Daniels Trump's attorney is calling it a total victory for the president of federal judge. Here in LA dismissing stormy Daniels defamation lawsuit against Trump Daniels claim the president defamed her when he tweeted about a composite sketch of a man, Daniel says, threatened her to keep her quiet about her alleged affair with Trump. In that tweet, the president called it a quote, total con job. The judge called the president's tweet a hyperbolic statement against a political adversary Daniels attorney is vowing to appeal. Alex stone, ABC news, Los Angeles Trump not exactly taking the high road after his victory ABC's Andy Field in Washington with that, the president comparing story Daniels. Face to a horses on Twitter after he wanna court fight saying he did not defame the adult film actress in the past. The president's disparage the looks of women. He disagreed with. He says he oppress asking if it was appropriate to insult a woman's appearance. Mr. Trump responding quote. You can take it any way you want and the president this week taking aim at another political adversary. But if you don't mind continued, you might. Because it will show everybody what a phony she is Trump on the attack against Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren still claiming she does not have native American ancestry. In spite of DNA test showing she does here again ABC's Mary, Bruce. His opponents say it's a racial slur, but President Trump relishes his nickname for Senator Elizabeth Warren Boca Hodges, polka polka. Trump seizing on warrants claim that she's part native American. Even once leveling this challenge. I will give you a million dollars favorite charity, painful Trump. If you take the test Joe's urine into Trump claims. Warren used her heritage to help her get ahead. But there is no evidence advanced her career. Still the Massachusetts Senator who's trying a twenty twenty White House. Ron took up the president's challenge releasing video showing her receiving the results of DNA test. One of the facts say. American EMC Esther, in your pedigree. Warren was told she had a native American ancestor in the range of six to ten generations ago, but the president is Scoffing at the results. One. Over the country in apology. What's the percentage one thousand ads for that million dollar offer only of I can test her personally, okay. That will not be something I enjoy doing. Either the Cherokee nation called the president's attacks, derivative, but is also criticizing warrant saying she is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage. Adding a DNA test is useless. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person's ancestors were indigenous to north or South America. The US Justice department is opening an investigation in Pennsylvania into the sex abuse scandal rocking the Catholic church. The first federal statewide probe into decades of wrongdoing. As we hear from ABC's David Wright, it comes on the heels of a grand jury report. The federal grand jury issued subpoenas this week to Roman Catholic leaders across Pennsylvania, seeking trove of sensitive documents and testimony about past abuse cases, federal prosecutors clearly following. Up on the work of the Pennsylvania grand jury, which this summer gave the first comprehensive view of abuses going back seventy years. Priests were raping little boys and girls and the men of God who were responsible for them. Not only did nothing. They hit it all for decades. The statute of limitations had already expired on the vast majority of those cases. What's not yet clear is whether federal charges might apply. The Pennsylvania report is part of a worldwide reckoning over the church's past history of abuse and the massive cover up that enabled it for years here in the US, Pennsylvania was the first to take on the issue statewide. Now, a number of other states following suit already. The Pennsylvania report has had a major fallout within the church prompting the resignation. This month of one of America's most prominent Catholic leaders cardinal Donald world of Washington. DC US bishops have also launched a nationwide investigation of their own with the post blessing with a particular view to holding church leaders accountable for the cover up.

Downtown Detroits Development Paradoxes With Retail & Urban Design Expert Conrad Kickert
"It's you open up a building next to Dan Gilbert Development. That's a good thing for people on the sidewalk or crowd. More buzz more instagram pictures stories. If you open up develop next illitch development. That's considered a bad thing because you're leaking. Customers away from the concessions served this either from the stadium et Cetera et Cetera. Today along form conversation with author Conrad Kicker. He's a retail and planning expert and professor at the University University of Cincinnati. His most recent book caught my eye dream. City creation destruction and reinvention in downtown Detroit backed up by research and global global experience. He busts myths about downtown Detroit and its history. He adds perspective from his career from world class cities and working on making urban design and retail plans. That actually work. He's very frank about the possibilities for the future for the city that there is opportunity but doing things as we did before isn't a path forward. I'm jared days and this is your daily Detroit for Friday January twenty fourth. Two Thousand Twenty. We'll get started with this conversation with Conrad kick it right. After we think our members brisson patriotic that helped make the show possible. EPISODE IS AD free. Thanks to you thanks to Tony. Alison Multiple Dave's. Lana Zak Kathy. And many more more consider joining these awesome people at Patriotair dot com slash daily Detroit. Conrad welcomed the daily Detroit. Thanks for having me Detroit. Detroit kind of a niche topic for a lot of people though. It's gained a lot of national cachet lately. What got you interested in the topic of Detroit before we get into everything everything else so originally? I'm a Dutch and I come from a country where even the most mediocre history even the most mediocre radio could buildings are carefully preserved. I went to Detroit for the first time. Two thousand to read and I'm sure you remember two thousand and three downtown Detroit with an exactly the most vibrant place in the world right so I walked around and I root around the people buzzing Haifa. What earth is going on here? It was fascinating a- all these giant buildings gorgeous gorgeous buildings it could clearly see that completely vacant and thought to myself. I have to look into this. A half COSC- what's going on or kind of city could let these beautiful buildings go to waste. And then of course while writing a book finishing some basic research in two thousand eleven but then while writing book in the years to follow all of a sudden all those buildings came back to life and I thought how how on Earth could this happen so quickly as well and so that really got me fascinated how things fall so deep and then go back and come back in such a vibrant if anything overly vibrant way so quick. That's really what got me attracted to to downtown Detroit to a personal fascination as somebody who was in downtown in those times it struck me how fast things turned around when I worked for a place called the Detroit Regional News. How a few years ago? Oh it was something where you could see kind of the shoots of these kinds of things happening. But I don't think anyone expected fifteen hundred dollar one bedroom bedroom studio lofts in the span of like two years. It feels like it just snapped in like a quick in such a quick way. That's almost like head-spinning winning absolutely absolutely and what's fascinating is if anything that just shows how much demand there is for vibrant urban environment if you look at the current development downtown to treat. I mean it's at the center of the multi million population region. Of course. There's people that want onto live the urban lifestyle. They want to work in urban settings and those people that are currently redeveloping downtown understood that really really well but also understood that they have to go all in on it. You couldn't do that in a gradual incremental weight which many people by the way had tried over the past decades they I have to go all in it and that's the lifestyle now. Have you know from from vacant too vibrant too. You know overprice in the matter of of a decade is actually very well. I know you a lot of work around density and retail and things like that. What about it? What about that in a global trend match what happened in Detroit because what? I'm learning doing more and more research as that. These trends are not like Detroit is not a snowflake these trends have examples examples in other cities. And if you follow those examples. There's a lot that you can learn about what's happening now in the future. Absolutely so there's a couple of trends ends. You could really see in downtown Detroit. I mean let me start off with the trend of authenticity authenticity. Paradoxically to be honest has become a product in and of itself so people are looking for authentic historic local environments and you know the gorgeous architecture the setting setting in downtown Detroit has really cast in on that trend. That's one thing that people are looking for. The the other thing is as the Amazons. The walmarts arts. This world are really Catching most of the retail dollar. What you're seeing is? That retail spaces are moving from spaces of transaction. You buy shoes or a hat or a laptop or something like that to spaces experience especially for items. That aren't very exciting. You know good luck trying to buy A table You know sort of household table or pan or something like that in downtown Detroit. 'cause the space the items that you need you essentially can now buy with next delivered right. They're coming into the home the next day it's if the spaces and the things and the experiences that you want that's what draws people to cities and that's the type of stuff that you're now seeing in downtown Detroit Trey so you're seeing the restaurants bars which are essentially experiences that people want to have in their free time. The other thing is What you are seeing is that retail spaces are changing from basis of transaction? Again of of buying stuff to spaces for advertisement as well so in. The retail industry storefronts especially brand A flagship store fronts are now seen as three D. advertisements. You know spaces where your brand can be connected to an urban place and what better urban place than downtown traits traits that greedy underdog you know you can see the Chrysler driving pass base. So that's why you see. These brands like Nike under armour. The go-to downtown and to be honest. They couldn't care less if you buy a shoe or a shirt. They just want you to know. Their brand is Somehow spiritually connected to downtown Detroit. So you see this interesting mixer you know you see the bars and the restaurants which do need your dollar on the spot. They wanted meantime drink at some food. And then you see these brand flagship stores that just want you to understand that. They're in downtown to treat so really downtown on the tree is actually at the forefront of retail Trent. This is what's happening in many many other cities but many other cities have this legacy of stores awards that still still items instead of experiences. The trick didn't have that they essentially built that up from you can't say from scratch but they had a lot of space to work with and Some pretty progressive developers to take on this new concept of retail that leads me to one of the criticisms. I often hear uh of downtown retail is that you can't buy those kind of like residential everyday goods so what I'm hearing here is that nationally. The trend is away from from that even being a thing in general and maybe that's not even something that's in the cards for the future. That's right. I strongly doubt that you will ever be able to by a pepper grinder. That is not an tied to some sort of wonderful story in downtown to treat. Those things are simply over. You know those are the things that that are gonNA come in the next day in an Amazon box. So yes you're right you know. Detroit is unlikely to ever have those stores again. By the way I mean this is the attornal discussion also on food access which is much more problematic you know. Where can I buy a loaf of bread or a bag of apples pose? Even food retail is currently shifting slowly to to online. So you know every place I work and every place place I go usually. The first question is more shops. Where can I buy my shoes? Where can I buy kitchen items and then working I buy food? It's shifting and It's not shifting to space necessarily and if it is shifting to space and this is problematic for especially for a city like the tree it's probably shifting into the very very high end. Yes she will buy a bunch of apples but boy. Those are going to be the most special and expensive apples you've ever bought in your life and the same goes that's for the pepper grinder. Perhaps there will be a store that sells pepper grinders. But they're going to be incredibly expensive because there's going to be some wonderful story attached to do that but your household items. Yeah that's clicking away. That's really interesting. And it does have a lot of implications one of the things that I've noticed too is that Detroit as such a intertwined history with the car that yes created wealth with certain companies and factories in the middle class. And all that other kind of stuff but also I think it irrevocably Kabui hurt downtown and city fabric. You know one of the things that caught my eye about what you're doing with your book is you talked about nineteen twenties parking lot barons and I and I'm sitting here going okay. So we've been wrestling with this issue for a while. What tell me about this so parking lots are an interesting interesting phenomenon? First of all self reinforcing. This sounds really odd. But the bigger a parking lot becomes the more efficient it becomes and the bigger parking lot becomes the less attractive anything next to a parking lot becomes in general imagine downtown in the nineteen twenties. They have small offices also still has a lot of homes. Especially in the periphery downtown. I was GONNA say people were living right next to the Fox theater that there were single. Family homes homes on Colombia's strength right next to the Fox in the nineteen twenties. So what you get. Is this very odd smog. You get these small single family homes and some of them are really quite nice and then all of a sudden someone opens up the parking lot day tear down house and they turned it into the parking lot. And then you know you don't want to live there and what happens. Is You sell your house and that also becomes a parking lot. Which makes the house you even less attractive? Because now they're living next to a larger parking lot so these parking lots essentially spread like a blight. Across the periphery of downtown. What's interesting also? Is that blight around downtown. You had a full ring. Think of parking. You could not walk comfortably from downtown to any of the neighborhoods by the late nineteen twenty. So that's almost a century ago because because of all these parking lots but they fed the rest of downtown. They were crucial element of the skyscrapers of downtown effectively for every skyscraper. Great but going up a block was taken down somewhere else of these smaller homes and turned into parking. Lots and as you said it's it's fascinating. A lot of this was done completely privately. This is sort of very bottom up action. There is no zoning in downtown so you could take down a house parking no problem and it was quite profitable especially by the depression offices. Route becoming credibly vacant homes. Were starting to fall apart and the only real big business was parking so you get this ring of parking just growing and growing around downtown and frankly the city got involved not so much the curb. Herb it to say you know we should probably stop doing this notes actually encourage it said you know if only we could have enough parking downtown. Maybe that make sure that our downtown the buildings are becoming occupied again. You have to remember. I mean the city of the trait was very much aligned with with automobile interests. So from there on consensually all hope was lost. You get parking lot spreading across downtown now taking half space and then moving into parking garages garages and if you look at the reconstruction of downtown today believe it or not the calculations I've gone through the book. Eighty percent of new construction in downtown in town to treat is parking. It's not space for people to stand to have a drink of work or to live just to park your car eighty percent which of course makes you wonder how much extra money that adds to those actual spaces that you live in so downtown ever since the nineteen twenty to replace it's space for people with space for cars. Unfortunately that's interesting. You talk about that story because one of the things that was talked about on a previous interview on this show. We talked with actually the vice. As president of parking four bedrock was the idea of parking just outside of the city center where you would park and then take the people mover mover in or take various things into a very walkable center City in fact one of the pieces that we did for Detroit public television in one of the other voices on their Stephen Henderson floated the idea of shutting down Woodward between the spirit of Detroit and Grand Circus Park and making it all walkable except for or buses and the queue line and having parking kind of outside of that and that feels like wow. Are we just returning back to something. We already already did before with this piece of history that I'm not sure everybody knows about. Yeah that's right because don't forget they actually did close avenue to traffic the seventies that was an absolute disaster. So I don't know if that's a very recommendable thing to do by no means is it has to be you know an urban freeway or anything like that but but you do tend to get the feeling of urban life when you at least can still drive your car. Through spaces retailers love car. Parking in front of their spaces says even if that parking lot is usually taken up by the store. Owner cars are an element of of the trait Usually pedestrian iting streets beats in downtown areas if the parking isn't perfectly arranged and if there's not a significant percentage of people accessing downtown through public public transportation is a bad idea so I would actually personally recommend against it. I know that I come from you. Know the country where any any urban downtown is esther nuys but there you can get on a train or get on a street car and most people don't even come downtown by car what's also important. According to recognize is ideas to have perking. On the periphery of downtown into have downtown itself. Be leased low car or car free. These are ideas that have actually gone back all the way to the nineteen thirties. So they're already ideas to have parking on the edges of downtown and then have if people you know. Take your right street car or a bus or a people mover and move into the downtown itself. I still think even without pedestrian. Either these downtown streets. I think that's a very good idea because peripheral land is cheaper to begin with. And if you do that it might actually open up some nice central downtown land for development. That's more vibrant to begin with however and this is one very big caveat. What about the future of parking working to begin with because as you now are seeing is the growth of ride sharing technology and as people take ride shares especially to you these downtown bars and restaurants? Let's hope for heaven's sake they don't drive there to go drink at the bar. You actually see decrease need for parking so oh parking I to be very honest. Parking is not a very safe bet. At this point I would actually not billed as much parking as people are currently building. 'cause what if in the nearby future people take more rideshare just operated by person. There's less need for parking but especially what if in twenty years. It's time that the Thomas Vehicle becomes reality. Then what are we gonna do with all this. Parking garages we still need those. I doubt it to be very honest so I wonder if refunding about this. A lot as technologies actually catching up with us I think especially since the trade which has always been very much focused on the future should really kind of keep these technological advancements in the forefront so you know building more parking on the periphery making streaks car-free. I don't know it's kind of nineteen fifties to me. That's interesting you know when we talk about these kind kind of parking and developments in the city the city actually mandates a lot of parking per square foot compared to other places and a lot of car dependent things that developments eventually they in one way or another variance but that city policy also pushes some of this and when you speak of parking lots. I can't help but think caviar two biggest billionaires you think about the illitch clan and the Gilbert clan and their impact on downtown Detroit. Maybe we can talk a little bit about that and since we started with parking we'll start there and then we'll maybe go to the to the the other folks who maybe don't do as much of giant parking lots to answer your first question. Parking minimums are out. Essentially you know cities cities mandating. Parking minimums are stuck in the last century. You're seeing a lot of cities including including my own city of Cincinnati abolishing parking minimums instead adopting parking maximum. So they actually say you know. What if you don't want wants to build any parking if you can make a good case for it then don't build any parking in fact we don't want you building more parking because it becomes a cycle? Essentially the more parking you have walkable environment becomes the more people will drive the more parking. You need to break through that cycle and I know that this has has been a topic of debate in Detroit. You actually have to switch from parking minimums to parking maximum now if you look at the two main developers of course this is a big question in downtown Detroit then you really see. Diametrically opposed perspective to the car but also the car culture culture. I think Dan Gilbert really understands that the future downtown is a walkable future. He's aiming for people that just got out of their car and an perked it either at one of his own parking garages preferably somewhere else and is trying to draw into spaces. Give them interesting experiences. Whereas you know the illitch developments on the periphery are still very very much? Car oriented rather suburban developments that they will provide the parking for view. Please drive your car and We'll provide you with an interesting experience sports or entertainment or and of course we'll provide you with the concessions with you know before that experience as well and then you know please drive off. So it's a very car based vision. So you're seeing to frankly quite clashing envision of what a city should be. I think over tradition is is more future oriented. That's going to be more future proof by the time that Mobility Mobility is changing. Especially this would be of course a bit of a hopeful scenario. Just fewer people driving to downtown. Wouldn't it be nice if there's better better transit that people can take into downtown it also would make downtown little more inclusive for people. That can't afford a car which is a huge percentage of frankly city residents. I mean people. I think we're still in the. I know that we're still in the top ten of cities with households. That don't own a car which is kind of crazy considering our transit system. I mean yes people. They're very hardworking. People trying to make transit better but compared to like major cities in the world. It's just not a thing absolutely louis and that's a great shame To be honest this is plagued Detroit for you know. Oh well over a century I trace various subway proposals cels. I sort of pretty tentative proposal in the early nineteen hundreds and I would get more serious proposal for various reasons absolutely fascinating reasons by the way including an endorsement by none other than Henry. Ford these proposals keep getting shot down. So what you have is a city with a Streetcar System but you know. The tree is absolutely massive. So Imagine taking a streetcar from North West the traits at downtown in period insufficient system which by the way people tend to forget so transit never really worked in in downtown or four downtown which is by the way one of the reasons that downtown in size is quite quite a bit smaller than Decides downtown of Comparable Cities Imagine for instance compared downtown to treat the loop in Chicago. Ah The loop in terms of office. Space added was a multitude of of downtown Detroit. So you actually have a relatively small downtown. That is very awkwardly confronted with its own offspring right. The car is how do you fit those cars into downtown but then getting back to today's situation relation. Yeah you know you have a tremendous proportion of Detroit or is that still. Don't have reasonable access to downtown in town and then of course the question also becomes okay. They've just reached downtown. Are they going to buy one hundred and twenty dollars t shirts or you know twenty. It's all craft cocktails. What's in it for them downtown? That's a big issue right now. Well and it definitely is something that we definitely want to touch on. I know that there's some great great neighborhood developers that are doing some stuff but I know that since since your you know kind of focus has been downtown. You know I want to explain. I expect to do this by kind of want to explore this mythos of Detroit not having a great transit system back in the day because if you look online forums and places there's a lot of nostalgia waxed the street past but what you're telling me. Is it really wasn't that great. No they really were not that great you know. The city was very large STREETCARS are they're great. Don't get me wrong. I grew up using streetcars almost every day very but the kind of distances that you have to travel even with express. streetcars it. Just it was too big and Detroit really needed. A mass transit system like a subway or arrays mass transit system and never received one. I mean let me do a comparison. Imagine that you're in Chicago. It's steadily L.. You have to take on the the St Street cars that have to stop traffic lights and every two blocks. There's a stop. Are you really going to have a great time going all the way to Evanston all Louis Park. It's going to take forever to be honest you know currently with the L. it already takes quite a long time so I completely understand the stellar for streetcars very interesting transportation. Technology but the trait simply just became too big for streetcars and to be honest by the nineteen twenties. Winnie's mindue. That's the heyday of downtown. streetcars were hundred. On the way out. You Know Ridership Streetcar Ridership into downtown. During the nineteen twenties outings was already dropping and this is a very controversial discussion. I know it's A. It's a replacement by buses was initially at at least done as as soon as officiency replacement buses at least are quicker streetcars. Yeah we have this debate for a long long time. I'm sure but yes. I am somewhat critical of three cars. And you know if you look at through the Current Way Streetcar. The Queue Line in the tree We have a similar streetcar in Cincinnati. Right now are they really living up to their expectations. At this point I I would say no. I mean the queue line and it's very clear to me that the queue line was a development tool not a transit tool absolutely an excuse to replace the Infrastructure Woodward which needed to happen but as far as actually usually transit goes it kind of acts like when somebody designed something out of a book but they haven't even actually ran the thing before and so it's like it looks like a streetcar. It quacks like a streetcar but like it doesn't have the right of ways. It has weird like crossing the road in multiple places like it doesn't seem like it was designed for serving lots of people lots basics that I think any like transportation engineer would look at. They just didn't follow. That's right and I think it all comes down to the first thing you mention. It was an economic development tool not transportation tool. And you're seeing that with a lot of streetcar. Cincinnati has the same issue essentially. Actually it's an economic development tool which by the way in Cincinnati downtown in over the Rhine which is a neighborhood north of downtown doing really well for in terms of new development? We can talk about equity and Information of course but the streetcar is not doing well at all. You know. It doesn't really connect from H. B. Because because it never had that transportation ideal it was just meant to make sure that the homes along. The Streetcar would be Renovated which by the way I mean you have to admit both into trey and I can tell you in Cincinnati. That's actually happening quite well. If you look at Matanza Training Center Detroit there's all sorts of new stuff coming. Yeah Yeah it's not exactly a tool to get from A to b the various issues and again you know. Sometimes I feel like we're fighting. Rear Guard battle is is okay. THAT'S THE STREETCAR. How about bike sharing you know at the same time? CINCINNATI START THE STREETCAR. They really. This is boring bike sharing turns out that you know if you're somewhat not in good shape you can actually bike from downtown a lot quicker than you can pick a streetcar. I was GONNA say an Unsung success story here in Detroit so often is the Mogo people. People thought that the Mogo like our bike sharing system people would steal the bikes. You know all that other stuff turns out. That's not the case turns out ridership. goes up like it's in lots of different areas even even with me being outside of downtown. They've now expanded into neighborhoods. They're even doing it as a regional program now in walkable suburbs so in theory you could even Mogo from the suburbs if you wanted to hop stations like it's kind of crazy but it's doing real. It's something that they've really made a lot of progress and against popular tied with like like all that'll never work and look at their making it happen. I've always found. Maybe that's just my Dutch heritage. I found a great biking city. It's nice and flat. You know you don't probably don't WanNa bike there in February but in the summer. It's a lovely city. Streets are wide after bike lanes. So what you're finding is almost bottom up movement of these bike shares some more controversial these little scooters scattered all over the sidewalks turns out they can actually take on the task of of going from a to be just as well as those multimillion dollar streetcars. But they're different rates. streetcars on an economic development tool they showed. Ot developers at the city is invested. They've they're so transportation system they won't let this neighborhood down. That's a much different thing to do than I'm to build a bunch of bike. Share stations to PLOP thousand scooters ready to it's different tools for different things you you mentioned the word investment. So let's talk about. I think kind of bring this conversation sation home. I WanNa talk about the future and investment in downtown Detroit. Because we've got a few major players we've got Gilbert we've got ill got some other people who've bellied up in the very recent years but is this really market. Is this really a thing or is driven by some very passionate people. What are you kind of see the Reality Crystal Ball and I ask you you because you're outside of it? There's so many people here they're in it invested in it. They want it to happen a certain way you you're not you're comparing it to a variety of world cities and your academic experience. What do you see as an academic? I always will have to say pros and cons. So in a certain way especially Dan Gilbert's model redeveloping developing downtown really aligned with the global consensus of what downtowns should be in terms of creativity. Bring people together high quality public space experiential bars restaurants retail. It really ticks all the right boxes from an equity perspective. There's major work to be done. Y is Detroit not represented in downtown. Is there an opportunity for entrepreneurship beyond brand flagships and high end bars. Princeton's entrepreneurship that reflects the rest of the trait. Ill inches a different question. Altogether I mean the model of Gilbert and illitch I always say diametrically opposed and the analogy. I always use is if you open up a building next to a Dan Gilbert Development. That's a good thing and more people on the sidewalk. More crowd more buzz more instagram pictures. If you open up development next to him illeg development. That's considered a bad thing. Because is your leaking customers away from the concessions from this either from the stadion etcetera etcetera. That's a model. That's more difficult to WHO Defend in the long term and it certainly isn't a very urban model the big big question mark of course becomes. How does this fair with coming? Economic Alek recession you know. Will people still buy one hundred and twenty dollars shirts if they don't have a job or if you know craft cocktails and they don't have a job so okay room for innovation in downtown is difficult. I mean don't forget downtown. Also needs older spaces somewhat run down stasis because that's where the new ideas grow you know are sort of Messiah in the planning world. Is Jane Jacobs and her mantra. It was always you know. New ideas need need old buildings. How many of those are there in downtown? Downtown was the home of the quarter Cycle Henry Ford because he was in a crummy little shed. It'd behind his house. How many chrome sheds are in downtown? So that's something that is worth questioning as well as whereas create as crowd outcoming. Are they in downtown or have been pushed out of downtown to surrounding neighborhoods. And where does Brooklyn. Now move to Detroit. There's pros and and cons. I can certainly see your grand future for certain spaces downtown but new creativity more affordable spaces and frankly more equity the and representation of the rest of that passage to the tree are really bad into you know this conversation made me think and I think it's because I I've I've traveled around. I've seen seen other downtowns. That in downtown Detroit. We really have no idea what a real boom looks like. I mean economically especially Detroit. Downtown Detroit is just woefully behind the things that we talk about in the press massive change or frankly everyday occurrences in much of the nation thought. What about a recent visit to Charlotte North Carolina and it made my head spin with a number of cranes? I saw out the windows of the places I visited. Think about the economic opportunity. Steve from bottom to top the city of Detroit like Charlotte started adding fifteen thousand people a year every year for two decades instead we're debating census numbers whether or not we're going to see a tiny rise frankly all it's going to matter as public relations points or what if we looked at Atlanta Atlanta a city. That's been seeing growth since twenty ten. Think about the restaurant. The healthcare the construction jobs the tax revenue as the city. Here has an income tax. They could be ploughed back into the city's parks and worker training programs and hopefully some into the schools. Detroit at one point had more than double the people we have have now. We have the space. Why don't we use something like Atlanta or charlotte a metric to shoot for instead of climb to this idea of not losing or having? Just it's a little game anyway enough of my rambling. I know it was a bit longer conversation but I figured what the weekend we could do. Something with it and the guest at least to me was interesting. Stinging very generous with his time. Conrad's book again is Dream City creation destruction and reinvention in downtown Detroit. You will have a Lincoln. The shown outs thanks to the folks folks behind the scenes that make contributions great and small. Cheyenne no Sereni Randy Walker Fletcher Sharp. And of course never forget spend gusts in and of course you are members Patriot dot com slash. Daily Detroit. Have a wonderful weekend. I'm jared days to care of each other now. See you around Detroit

The House Judiciary committee voted to authorize subpoenas for attorney general William bar and five former White House officials, but chairman Jerry Nadler says he won't issue it right away. Instead, he will give bar another chance to change his mind about releasing the full unredacted Muller report. Republicans argued that bar has already agreed to release the report to congress with reductions to grand jury and classified materials Mona Kosar. Abdi ABC news Capitol Hill. New reports that members of the special counsels team have concerns with how their Russia report was summarized by attorney general bar ABC, news senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce explains for the first time members of Robert Muller's. Team a reportedly sharing frustrations with how attorney general Bill bar is handling their report, according to the Washington Post and associate of the Muller team says the report is much more acute than bar suggested sources telling the post the evidence on obstruction of Justice was alarming and significant bar has released a four page letter outlining his main conclusions, which the Justice department insists is not an attempt to summarize the report, but the post reports Muller's team is frustrated because they prepared their own summaries to be shared in their own words and not in the attorney general summary of their work. One official briefed on the issue tells the post those summaries were written in a way that minimum reductions if any would have been necessary and the work would have spoken for itself. The Justice department is pushing back suggesting they couldn't release any of the Muller team summaries because every page of Muller's confidential report was marked with a notation that it may contain confidential material bar has promised to make public redacted version soon, the president says. He supports that let it come out. Let people see it that's up to the attorney general. He tweeted there is nothing. We can ever give to the Democrats that will make them. Happy Republicans like Trump's ally, Senator Lindsey Graham wants to see more of a report come out publicly just let the public see what what they get for their money later. He told us he's standing by the attorney general no concern at all that bar summary may not be an accurate reflection zero. He's not stupid. Why would he do that Democrats reigniting the battle to see President Trump's tax returns? They're petitioning the IRS for six years of the president's taxes. ABC news senior national correspondent Terry Moran has details. This is shaping up to be a huge and important legal battle really for every American. So here's what's happening. A chairman of the House Ways and means committee Democrat Richard Neal of Massachusetts sent that letter to the IRS demanding all those Trump tax returns. These citing this nineteen twenty four law that allows the heads of. A few committees in congress to get the tax returns of any American as long as there is the supreme court says a legislative purpose they have to be involved in passing a law to get these returns and they're supposed to keep them secret. But this is congress. So we can't really expect that President Trump is fighting back as you see and he wants promised he would release his tax returns. Now, he says the audits won't let him, but this is going to be a major legal fight, and it will probably end up in the supreme court the privacy rights of Americans around those tax returns are very important. The IRS takes that very seriously. This will go to court President Trump is delaying his plans to repeal ObamaCare. ABC news chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. After saying he would make the Republicans the party of healthcare. I understand healthcare now, especially very well. A lot of people don't understand it. President Trump now says that will have to wait until after the twenty twenty election backtracking started with a tweet vote will be taken right after the election when Republicans. Hold the Senate and win back the house. The president's initial promise of a Republican healthcare plan came after he decided to attempt to completely terminate ObamaCare for the courts, a move that could leave tens of millions of people without health insurance. Now, he's saying the Republican replacement plan will have to wait if we get back the house and on the assumption. We keep the Senate, and we keep the presidency, which I hope would do good assumptions we're going to have a phenomenal healthcare. The about face comes after Republican leaders in congress told the president they had no interest in pushing through a healthcare Bill anytime soon, I made it clear to him. We were not going to be doing that in the Senate Republicans have yet to present a plan to replace ObamaCare, but the president implied he already has one when the plan comes out, which will be showing you the appropriate time it's much better than ObamaCare late last week. The president threatened to close the southern border with Mexico acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, told ABC. Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. The closure was imminent, a he obviously made a the same threat back in December. What would it take for him not to do that this week something dramatic, but this week the president backed down from that threat? Here's ABC's. Lana Zak last week, President Donald Trump threatened to shut the southern border with Mexico completely if the influx of migrants from Central America continued, but now it seems that there will be no border closure prompting the question, what changed the president's mind. My mind at all. I may get it down at some point. But I'd rather do Tara so Mexico have to say has been very very good on Thursday. The president suggested he would give Mexico a year to work on these issues. Lana Zak ABC news. The White House security concerns following a breach at the president's residence in Florida.

Green Light, Red Light
"It's Monday, June twenty-fourth a big announcement than a u-turn. You noticing a pattern we start here. He said we were caught and loaded. But days later, President Trump has yet to pull the trigger and I didn't like it. I didn't think it was. I didn't think it was proportionate. No military strike doesn't mean no response, though, how to evaluate the risks and rewards in Iran thereafter. You they're not after you. If you're an undocumented immigrant, which would you believe they are still just as worried as before immigration rates are called off for now as new questions emerge about detention facilities? We've got the exclusive and people always complain about politicians not doing their jobs will in Oregon. The police are trying to force them to. They can ask the governor at the state police, and she agreed to do that. While Levin, lawmakers have fled the state and are living as fugitives from ABC news. This is start here. I'm Brad milkey? Are you hiring with indeed? You can post a job in minutes. Set up screener questions, then zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard. Get started today at indeed dot com slash start here. That's indeed dot com slash start here. The planes were ready. The missiles were loaded. And then with ten minutes to spare President Trump admits, he made a sudden about-face, so they came and they said, sir, we're ready to go. We'd like decision. I said, I want to know something before you go. How many people will be killed? In this case Arabians that's how the president described those tense moments in the situation room to NBC's, Chuck Todd, Iran. It just struck down an unmanned drone they continue to insist this all happened within that imaginary line twelve miles from there coast. The US says the drone was well outside that line high above the narrow straight of Hormuz came back said, sir, approximately one hundred fifty and I thought about it for a second. I said, you know what they shut down. Unmanned drone plane, whatever you wanna call it. And here we are sitting with one hundred and fifty dead people that would have taken place, probably within a half an hour after I said, go ahead. And I didn't like it. I didn't think it was, I didn't think it was proportionate the US stood down everyone took a breath, and that is seemingly, where things stood all weekend, but behind the scenes things have been happening, not all attacks done with bombs and missiles, but what do you do, when that is what you would already given the green light to ABC's, James Longman is right across that straight of Hormuz? He's in the United Arab Emirates, and so James, what was the reaction after that order to stand down? Well, I think most countries, I expected a military response from the United States, and I think has been surprise on relief. I think that a reaction didn't come what we're learning though is that whilst that wasn't a military reaction that was a cyber attack launched by the United States. That's the report originally from the Washington Post, which when President Trump decided that the ministry tack wouldn't be proportionate, what he used anything is a lot when they shoot down an unmanned. So anything. So I didn't like it. He decided we understand a cyber attack would be proportionate an attack computer systems in Iran, which controlled rocket and missile systems. There is a lot of uncertainty here, the weekend, here has been quiet, but I think people waiting with baited breath to see what the United States doesn't act. There is a United Nations Security council meeting today, and I guess we'll find out what happens next after that we'll show the computer hacking was supposed to happen already because some foreign oil tankers got bombed, I guess the question is, whether we're centrally responding still to those and ignoring the drone or the cyberattack now because of the drone I mean, what is the thinking in Iran, James IRA? There's certain actions that would be an act of war, or are these sanctions in themselves sort of an active war. I think that's a great way of putting it the sanctions are already tantamount to wall. They use this phrase economic terrorism. So for them these sanctions of a ready waged a wall, Dow, right? Is it economic mess? Going through hell their economy. This year couldn't the shrinking by six percent oil exports it down by eighty percent. I mean they're on has been hit really, really hard by these sanctions. All I want is known nuclear weapons idea that you'll you'll sanctions will automatically mean full these people to the negotiating table is possibly a bit too simplistic. We will have to wait and see what's next, then I mean, if the plan was to hit three Iranian missile sites. That's clearly, not an option for President Trump at the moment. What are his options then? I mean broad yoga's is as good as mine. I mean, if you wanted to hit some of Iran's interests abroad, well, you would be just adding oil to the fire. Everybody was saying, I'm a war monger. And now they say Madaba, and I think I'm neither you wanna know that I'm a man with common sense, but he always caveats it with this idea that he won't say radiance to come to the negotiating table. He wants to tool he will not set preconditions for talks either. And so I think the best is at the moment that the US won't take military action, but we do know. Today. More sanctions will be introduced. It's hard to believe you can even put on that then will further put the pressure on Iran. They then possibly could lash out. And then we're all we we're back in this position. Once again, wondering whether or not the US is going to respond to yet, more aggression by Ron because of those sanctions. And if that happens can the US back down twice tonight? ABC news actually talked to a lot of American security analysts over the weekend. In some of them said, this is a good choice if you want to keep things from escalating, the back and forth. Oh, in their eyes was akin to President Obama's red line in Syria. Meanwhile, the Saudis and other allies clamoring for more action, we'll see what happens James Longman just outside to buy in the UAE. Thanks a lot. Thanks. Going into this weekend. The biggest question to the country seemed to be are we about to launch this attack against Iran will suddenly in several parts of the country? There was another all consuming question our immigration authorities about to launch their own massive rates, and Stokes fear and panic in our community. And after all President Trump had promised on Twitter, millions of what he called illegal aliens would be removed in the coming weeks when we talk about knowing your rights, no snow, part and without a warrant, you don't have to open the door officials said deportations would begin at this weekend, but for the second time in two days, the Trump administration went from a green light back to a red light in his tweet. The president writes, he is delaying the raids at the request of Democrats Dovan protests continuing cities like Los Angeles. At least one pediatrician is sounding the alarm on conditions for people who have already been detained comparing it to, and I, quote, torture facilities ABC's. Lana Zak was on the team that broke an exclusive. On that lawn of I, I just need to wrap my head around what happened with these like these deportations. These ice rates what was going to happen. Why didn't it happen? So President Trump had said on Twitter that, that there were going to be massive raids by immigration customs enforcement officials, and they were going to come in, and this is what was unprecedented about it really Brad that they were going to come to people's houses that it was going to be pre dawn raids to take place on Sunday morning. And then we know that speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi on Friday asked the president to call off the raids which he did in a tweet. He said at the request of Democrats. Have delayed the illegal immigration removal process deportation for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together clear. This was not the announcement of some new operation or new plan. It was simply restating of what you're what you're doing right now. That's correct. Now, they're, they're husband Korean to ice officials. They say that many of the details about the raids were made public and that they felt like they had compromised their Bill. Actually to, to carry these out. There's a lot of factors that go into that. And I'm not worried about the numbers also the cities are saying we're not going to let this happen. The federal government saying we're not doing this anymore. Why were people still protesting last night? Well, remember Brad, the last part of the president's tweet was a threat that deportations could take place in two weeks. So for members of the immigrant community for people who are, are here without documentation, they are still just as worried as before that, that somebody's going to come knocking at their door, and we'll take away members of their family or or themselves. And if you're an immigrant living in this country, and you don't have papers, or people that you love don't have papers just because the president has said now on Twitter, that, that this is going to be delayed by two weeks that doesn't give you comfort that somebody isn't going to come knocking at your door to take away your loved one at this point, very little, a belief that, that they can trust what they're hearing from the federal government here. We're talking about. Who reside in the US, but there's also been criticism, Lana over these border detention facilities. Right. People already in custody, what have you and your team in hearing about that. We were able to speak actually with a pediatrician. A local pediatrician in Texas who was invited into one of these facilities who said that two thirds of the children that she examined were sick some of them with respiratory problems. And that the conditions that she found there were appalling, I hate to use the word torture, because it's so scandalizing, but if you imagine yourself in one room for twenty four hours lights on for three weeks, it would certainly start to feel that way. I'm sure she said it was worse than jail every single person of the thirty nine I asked reported that they had no place to wash their hands including after bathroom use. I mean, someone Rajen can, you know this. I'm a mother, I have a one year old at home, the care that you take to wash those bottles to make sure that, that child is protected and safe and healthy a real. Use the same formula bottle over and over for these infants that they refill with powder formula and water, which is a huge health hazard because he said was tantamount to intentionally causing the spread of disease. I pointed to a hand sanitizer. And asked of the mothers, have you seen anything like that in there? They said, yeah, those are just for the cards, and she also had the story Brad that I think, is so hard to hear one of the babies that she saw the mom made clothing for this child out of diapers, because he had nothing else to wear. Also, this pediatrician says this is what she saw in Texas. Is that indicative of a wider issue? I mean what what's the administration saying about this? We've we've heard this from this pediatrician. We've heard it from tourneys who have been in investigating the conditions that many of these facilities, and in fact, federal judges were taking the administration to task over this because they felt like the fact that there was no soap that. These children weren't having the lights turned off at night. The lights on twenty four seven that this went beyond even what we would allow political prisoners to endure before they didn't conceivable that the government would say that, that is safe and sanitary, the borders in much better shape. Mexico's doing a good job. We need congress to fix the loopholes and fix asylum. And we will have the cleanest border. There is by President Trump said that he felt like they were doing an incredible job on the southern border. And in fact, we reached out to customs and border protection for their response to our reporting. They tell us that they have limited resources, but that they tried to ensure the protection and safe keeping of everybody in their custody, especially children, and that they take all allegations of civil rights abuses and misconduct. Very seriously. Serious claims, of course, big exclusive Lana. I know you and our colleague Serena Marshall had been reporting this out. Thanks so much for the time. Thanks, brad. On start here he was supposed to be the plucky one. The choirboy candidate will amid a national conversation on race controversy has come to mayor, Pete's backyard.

We're entering what maybe the most consequential week of the twenty twenty race so far, the first presidential debates begin on Wednesday. They'll continue on Thursday and whatever you think the landscape may look like right now. Well, things can change in this race in just minutes as Joe Biden, and now ask the mayor of south bend, Indiana, p Buddha judge. And I would love to be able to finish out to be able to finish my reply if that's okay, the question of race, of course, comes up often in the US. So it's gonna come up in a presidential campaign, especially, though, for democratic primary. We're more than twenty percent of your voters are black, almost ten percent are Latino ABC's therapa Mary spent this week and on the campaign trail, she's back here in New York now. So Tara everyone had been focused on Washington, and Joe Biden's remarks about southern senators where did south bend, Indiana fit into all this. Well, mayor people judge actually got off the campaign trail for a few days to go back home, and he had to deal with some serious issues, real racial tensions of protest. After a white police officer shot and killed a black man according to the Saint Joseph county metro homicide unit the man who police killed is fifty years old. Investigators say he was rifling through a car with an SP PD officer confronted him. That's when the men got out in approached the cop with a knife, mayor people generally has been running on his record as mayor of south bend. So to see these kind of issues it makes it a tougher sell for him to voters, especially black voters. Course black lives matter. We're here, first and foremost, because the city is hurting, because the city is in pain. So he held the town halls. Oh, all I'll keep this brief. So we can get to the questions. And then from there, I'm not talking about this case. It was shouting though, if anybody mad, what I gotta say, then I'm not hard to find booing. Dr king said we must excel by night disappointment, but I think people being escorted out. There was a lot of raw intense emotion. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. We're walking the process out people saying, what are you doing to make sure that the black community is protected? We'll, so you're with them in South Carolina. He flies back because of this shooting. But he's getting criticized because he wasn't spending a ton of time with the grieving family, and then this weekend. There's another shooting at a bar in south bend were ten people are injured. So I mean, is this a proving ground moment for a guy who is not held huge elected offices before he has been riding a wave of great press since he announced his candidacy, because he so unconventional. He's so different. Dunk openly gay, and he's also a veteran so he really is quite kind of a unicorn in the race. But then he's hit with real life issues problems at home between his police department and wac members of its community. And this is something that isn't just an issue in south bend, Indiana. It's all over this country. Mayor p are you worried about how the protests at home are playing in South Carolina, especially among African American voters. Not really something to think about in terms of politics. It's something we think about in terms of community, black voters are looking at how he's dealing with this issue at home and sizing him up and all over the country with every candidate to right. I mean, the reason you were in South Carolina wasn't just because of Buddha judge because a lot of candidates are trying to get some momentum in a state. That's way more diverse than Iowa. New hampshire. Right was Joe Biden on their minds. It's interesting because I did speak to some voters after the Joe Biden gaffe when he reminisced about that time, working with agregation s. And a lot of the black voters, I spoke to they actually still like Joe Biden. I believe that when dole by this say he's not a racist. I believe from one hundred percent eight he's not a racist. Many of them said he's still there number one choice. And the reason is because they think he's got the best shot at beating trunk. It gets a hundred and fifty percent important that we choose a democratic candidate that can beat try and for them. That's more important than anything else. Interesting which moments get shrugs in which ones do become actual crises for campaign. We'll see what this is for people to judge Tara Palmeri with us in studio. Thanks a lot. Thank you. Brad. We've covered disappearances on the show. We've told stories about fugitives on the loose or rarely are those fugitives. Active lawmakers this day of my life. I'm begging you to come back. But that's exactly what's unfolding right now around the Oregon state House, Republican lawmakers, one of them, I'm talking about more than ten state senators. They fled the area around the capital. Some of them have left the state entirely to avoid even sitting down for a vote. This began is kind of quirky story last week will over the last few days, we've seen protesters we've seen a search of the capitol, and we've seen what some of called outright threats Hillary born covers the state capital for the Oregonian, newspaper and Hillary may visits happened before, but this kind of kicked up a notch. What happened here? Sure. So this time, the issue is a climate change Bill that there really opposed to would cap the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon. I am doing the work of my constituents by voiding saddling all Oregonian. With this horrid piece of legislation, and since Republicans don't hold enough seats in Oregon legislature to stop the Bill on their own. They only have eleven senators right now what they did was walk out to deny Democrats, the twenty person core. But they, they needed in order to hold this vote Republican show, then, you know, your carbon Bill doesn't get a vote. Yes. So that's the process here for when lawmakers. Don't show up. Of course, it depends on how much the Democrats in this case would want us. Escalate the situation. They didn't do this earlier this year during the first walkout Republicans had, but they can ask the governor said at the state police in. She agreed to do that. Senate Republicans failed to show up and failed to do their jobs and then Thursday morning. Reporters started to figure out that they had just left the state, and we were calling them in hearing. Well, you know, hey Hilary I'm about to cross the state line right now into Idaho. We have avoided being within the state boundaries where the governor connects your size. Is at her perogatives, this state troopers that call us back to the state Capital, One guy who really seemed to escalate the situation earlier this week. Okay. So sending the threat out like, oh, we're gonna have a special session where I'm gonna send a state police, terrestrial tentative, Brian both list. So here's the quote. This is what I told the superintendent, send bachelors income heavily armed. I'm not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon. It's just that simple for being a pretty colorful speaker. But that was really perceived as a threat. So one side walks out the other side calls the cops to physically dragged. These lawmakers back the other side, Ben says, hope the people coming after me, don't have families like that escalates quickly. Yeah. And so as, as all this was going down, and we were realizing that maybe these Republicans were going to do this. Maybe they were going to walk out or rumors. So then at this point, a militia, who nationally your audience might be familiar with from back a few years ago when militia. Says were occupying a wildlife was actually somewhat of a bird sanctuary out in rural rural, Oregon. Well, a group that was involved with that they're called the three percenters of Oregon. They hopped online and started offering trim, transportation, security support for these Republican senators it was unsolicited I asked the senator's spokeswoman. Hey, are you guys accepting those? Do you want this? She said, no capital actually gets down because of it and then they said, they'd come back yesterday. So what was it like sort of similar some of those people return were rallying at the capital, but it was a pretty small group? I think we counted fewer that hundred that were there. And the Democrats briefly opened it up said, are do we have in your publicans here? We don't okay? We're gonna shut it down and come back again on Monday morning. And there was no incident, absolutely bizarre. Senators still on the run right now. Several of out of state Hillary board from the Oregonian. Thanks so much. Thank you. And one last thing you ever go to sleep in a place, that's not your home. And then when you wake up you panic, right? Where am I what is the strange place after a breath? Everything's fine. Woman says she took a nap on a flight but woke up on the completely empty plain. That's right in a Facebook post Tiffany atom says she was flying on Air Canada from Quebec City to Toronto. Once you woke the plane was parked, the passengers were gone, and the crew had left and picture this it's after midnight, the lights are out, so it's completely black. She tries to call for help, but her phones out of power and the outlets. Don't work. She goes to the cockpit, doors, open it. But the radio won't turn on to know. She opens the door to the plane and the only way out is a forty foot drop to the tarmac. She claims she thought about creating a rope out of seat belts to lower herself down, eventually, though, she found a flashlight in signaled to a baggage handler a spokesperson for Air Canada confirms. Yes, she was left on the plane, but they have no information. Besides that they're reviewing this incident. In the meantime, what I want to know is in this situation when there are no rules.

Payback obviously the week off the summer slam very strange to have a pay per view that quick but. I was alright show like I. Don't think it was. It was bad. I had quite often watching it.

Just couldn't get into this match. I don't know if if they don't Mesh well. By struggle to get back into. I don't know what it was like I like both. I just I don. McDonald. Corbin's offense didn't feel like the same. I don't know if it's just him in working together it just. Yeah just it just didn't get going for me. It wasn't very good in my view. I? Think that was the week he's match. On the card which I was surprised because I thought. Very smackdown heavy. Yeah. It was. It was actually you're right I don't ever more smackdown stories and stories on if it was like a Fox idea, just do the pay per view in but yeah, it was. It was I mean I feel like rose a bit more of a slow building stories. I feel at the moment. and. When we will be interesting. But there is talk to Shane McMahon's GonNa take the Bruce Pichad or Paul Heyman row on row now. From what I read last week day McMahon's apparently going to do that. So project can concentrate on smackdown because I can imagine bruce preach must be tired like. He's doing right now I know. He's doing the his his podcast and he's right and produce shows plus the pay per views. Yeah. I mean I know he's had had input from Daniel Bryan and edge and stuff like game but I mean, it can't be easy to do both shows. He's all in the same place but I mean with genuine Bryant's absence I think they're gonNA start navigating towards this way. Like maybe that's just me but I feel like just absence is. They're navigating him tour slowly becoming a writer for them. Yeah, and that wouldn't be a terrible thing for him. I made his comeback had these moments I think he's he'll run with the with the Green. Taito though would title was amazing with Robin and stuff I thought that was great. Captain Planet Daniel Gronyea be to that. He'll take because like for me. With how excited everyone was to have Brian back to have him turn heel successfully. Huge says huge amounts about him. You know huge amounts about him to be out of turn the crowd and enjoy him and stuff. But yeah yeah, I think as a writer. I, feel I feel like, I've seen him come back. Jeeze. Maybe take it easy and it. He's got two kids. Now he's GonNa. Start the. Of the future. Back into payback women's tag team championship now this. This caused a few scenes and a few comments and. It. Was Bailey and banks versus Jackson. Beza. I thought it was pretty good. It was I thought it was a really good match and Bazeley showed. The me hype that was when she got caught up. Like I thought. She was amazing I mean that finish that she did. Like so she had. them both trapped in like machines at issue sashes to checkout lay artists that I was. I was screaming I was excited like it was a hell of a move. How do you feel about baseler learn Jacksonville being champs? Now I know there are some people that we note haven't been so hot wash your views. I, like where they're going with it. I, like it to slow built. The ending of making her cap with their own partner. I felt they. Do you think I've seen a lot of comics? Do you think they're making? Jackson Bays. The female version of team hell no twenty twenty team how Could. I think could be dominant I mean they're scary like those to form. Scary. Good. But I like the way eight Maye baseline look really good third the Sasha Bailey Story. Yeah, I think. That a lot of. Praise has to be given to them for their work that they've done this covert version of WWe. They've been amazing like those two on every show that they've been on. The tight was the style to disappear debate he's got. Interested in if picks up a speed. See from there. But Yeah, hell of a match. Shane looked incredible straight up and it was good carried on the story. Then had keithly. Versus Randy Orton. Wow. Him over harder like. Hot do you think this is like Randy's just accept in his row now and he's just going to be putting people over like this while edge off. Thing that that's what he wants to do. I not obviously, he has asked to what some annexed guys. But yeah, I thought it was really cool. Good to see keithly in. The Rub that he's getting. Obviously everything Vince. McMahon is ever wanted in a person. You know like he can promo where he can wrestle athletic he's big. The spirit bottom is good. Yeah it wasn't a great match did what he needs to do LE- you know he's top story less than ten minutes and with Van. Your heart is big. Win. Big Big stuff. Moved on mysterious. against. Murphy, in Berlin's. Hurt. WHO DID Material. That's why you last night he's really yeah because it was hyped it was versus cried set. Okay. Okay. dominique some looking pretty good. Matches. Out of that to coins. Duty Toward TRICEP. Because I knew it was meant to be. said, he suffered an injury that will keep him out of action at. Paid. Their key announced Monday Roland material suffered a torn triceps. And the TAG match. Yeah. Ouch. These, these four working really well together though. Dominic looks great. It was just a ton of action and she's what you want from a tag match like it felt good proper. Tag match per I mean, maybe one day when rage back maybe Ryan Dominic have a tactile run or something. I could see that maybe to break him in a little bit more. Obviously if he's injured now that might caboose. That's why I was of hoping for them like, yeah. Give him a title round, the tech run or something like I like the street prophets Dougie wrong but. Maybe the mysterious. But yeah, it was a good solid match close to be matching the night for me I think it was close. It may have been the match of the night. But very, very solid. Good. Good time. And then the University of Championship match. Right, this is for me where they messed up completely. I think they messed up completely. I. was. Brought a bright for like eighty percent of the match. And then rains in Haymond appeared and then rain side the contract like. Why is that the first time we've ever seen that if that's the thing that you can do. Why isn't everyone don't? Like it any transit Because basically e treats it like a money in the bank. I basically your money in the bank. Yeah I think the title back environment especially if they're gonNA go on this Heitmann, he'll thing. I get it. I do get it. Just. Didn't need to have Breyer's transitional champion could have maybe just had d Q. Stroman, keep it and rains. Only. Dog Turn. Now why it's face and Romans the he'll. Right. Yeah. Because like they do the. is obviously. Alexa Bliss her bunches backing you know and she was standing out in like was broke Shouted smash the Mug. Alexa with Bray. Maybe. I mean that's That's pretty cool. It's an aesthetic. Of, storyline that people aren't understanding anybody that's got into contact with Bray, why it had reverted to their old game. Do you think we're going to get like rains in a suit like he was on Annex T. Forget is he was a he'll. He'll. Florida Championship. Team. Anybody that Conscience Bray Y. When they're going with their feud Dave, somehow come out of it with their old gimmick. What this is awesome. She's pink ponytail together bronze. Now walking around throwing things and being big old scary monster guy again film bow and back. Then our. Back, literally went back to. St. Act Being Valor. Seth Wayne he'll again. Going back to Morrison. Mesa. Getting O'Brien. was because he caught his era was like, well, what's going on here and the body that touches the feud with the fiend. Their Gimmick regresses. Goldberger to become good when he comes back then. He's going to have some energy. No Yeah I is. This is what's happened and like it's been a really good storytelling I to what I WANNA see CNN comes back. Doctors, economics. One loss rod is he'll saga. Cutting you imagined. That would-be sick. The? Fun. He hasn't house. We haven't. They Willie walking. He's like madder right now. Floating in the air load in around. So. Yeah. Yeah it was a good show. I would say six seven out of ten. It was it was down from stabbed, but then pay per views always up for like see had a week I actually thought they pulled off a pay per view you know. So yeah. I can't. I call it knock it. I, mean Dominique's grave. I mean Shane Look. Great. I thought it was good to Keith Leonova Yeah I don't have any complaints about it and. He'll Roman being champ. I'm all for like I'm all for. especially with Haven Heyman and Heyman and rain. So we need to use OS with him to be like a faction that would be great. I think that. Even if while the other one is out think Jay, that's out how he Jimmy as inside piece yeah yeah. But I I'm okay. With their did with aiming and I get one again because we'll get to that. News later with Brock and yeah. Yeah Avenue. So I think would be good. But yeah payback solid we moved onto railroad was pretty much like a follow on from it. Started the match. and. They made like three matches to make a triple threat match. It was Kevin, Islands Versus Randy Orton Keith Ziegler. Dominic versus Seth and who the winners of that would go into a triple to be the number one contenders And then so often was first and. Headed back and forth and There was photos of everyone being kicked in the hand and stop it was bit all bit, hectic and Ziegler come out and just like beat him up and disappeared and match stike straight away. least, Promo. I think is a good start of Kim standing out which. He seems quite polite in his promos. Yeah I, just is his vocabulary. I don't know what it is. I Dunno it just seems like a slow down version of anyone else I didn't know this. But there's talent. There is something about his choice of words that feels a bit. Maybe to come pretty line esque. Way. The match style keithly Dossey Gla. Really. Good. Match. I don't know why but I'm guessing because he's had other shots and stuff. Zico the hell for I'm guessing what did she see it? You know why? Ziegler can sell to anyone like. Ziegler's up there would like the shore. Michael's billy guns Mr Perfect levels. Being able to sell. Flying. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah Yeah. Come on now. Title Run. Yeah. Yeah. He does deserve it because he does he has put the working and he's never really had much time off or anything has Eli Ziegler like he's not been out injured much or you know like a few like normal. But I felt after that that I felt that that showed Lee. Almost, better than the. Auden. Win You know like a looked really good. He put like all these aggression in that. There was something on the line. I. Don't know I just I felt like after that Bachelor I now lease here. We get it. then. There was a back and forth with. All the women like. Their. Oscar was there. And then something else and then I think Adam Pearce appeared again. Uh so he he's my new one Adam Pearce yeah smackdown GM. Happen. Postman Pierce. We. Put out a tweet. Somebody wants them like you'll Egypt postman he was like this is not funny guys. It's nice to see him. As a big fan back in Nevada, like he was in bringing of owner for a long time big fan of his work like I think. I. Mean if people know him, they know that you know he knows he knows his stuff he's been around the block. By like Abbie, came to see him a bit more and stuff. Postman Pierce make him smackdown GM though that's the one. That's what I'm going for. That's my new. Pierce. and. So anyway, then the come into the ring I think really gal get there. But Charlie is in the ring big shouts Charlie Caruso by the way Oh my gosh woman is stunning. And she's interviewing Oscar and Oscar's about to like say who she thinks gets title shot and she's laughing and she's lifting them off from mickie James is the one the answers. Dot Com's Mickey James. Lucchino. Kinds of. Ten years ago. Looking Great. scoping in Mickey in Oscar's face. And then the terrible twosome come out. Investing gear at least not doing Tiktok. Natalia and Lana come out. Lana quoted Delusional Nice. She was selfish Yada Yada. Yada. Ended up in a match between. mickie James and Lana? And what was it like to it off minutes Lana Zak. Just can't do it for me. Remember back. He was I two, thousand twelve or eleven where wwe bought like that streaming APP cow. Grand Wrestler just big town my wrestling back right now. Yes. That's louder louder should go back to two thousand and eleven. Reminds me of. What is this? I Don I dunno Lana is that maybe because she's pretty but she's super annoyed and really can't wrestle. She's uncoordinated. She's not particularly in the revival contract, which is GonNa Join Bruce off maybe. Maybe. I mean I think maybe that'd be good for her growing gone. Find something we'd Hey, maybe that's why he hasn't signed anywhere yet. Waiting for her but I thought she signed quite a long deal didn't she like? Who knows who knows respect? Yeah it was a mess but he got away and then she was like pointing in Oscar and stuff Oscar on comedy in the chair when she's dancing these some of the funniest stuff though I ever see I could watch that day. I'M NOT GONNA lie. Then it was. Time for Randy, Orton casino it's. Black mass to Kevin Bass Louis need to know alice the black. Nowhere. Coat now. Maybe. He's Pelvis Superhero I. mean he again, he took his head off and just actually. Enjoy growling. Savior thing maybe. I think this is their attempt of. Changing his gimmick Vince oversee wanting to do. GimMe can get behind like. Okay. Like rollins weapons locker room in like. He held rollins is like. Art, of this thing? Maybe maybe like a wake-up call a potentially I mean. Yeah could be potentially who knows I mean I'm assuming it's just lead into. Alice Black Wins at one point which yet take my money. It's fine I have no problem with. Winning his quick for the point of the story. Yeah so it was. Trump to more times, Erkki one-two-three all over. Amazing. There was some bits and pieces we've cedric and Bachelor, girl? Still. Don't get why she's on TV so much like. I don't I don't understand. This I. Don't know why she's there. Like, the bachelor still going over there or something or Bachelorette or wherever she is I just don't understand what she's doing. Like issue under contract with wwe. Idea like I have no idea because she's there every week flirting with. Eric. In Gaza and just around and in looking tiny in these massive office chair, the ringside I'd I don't know what it is I don't get what she's there for what she's promoting. I just don't understand it myself I, just don't understand it myself. But. Yeah. Anyway some stuff who've said drinking MVP trying to recruit him and stuff still I still think he's GonNa be Cochet. You know I still think it's going to do. A And then led to Lashley. Bedouin MVP is Cedric Alexander and the Viking raiders. Obviously. Kind of run of the mill match but. Yeah, it was It was literally there for Cedric to get that one to free I think it was more storytelling match run-of-the-mill kind of tell the story. The aftermath and Yet because MVP acted like he was impressed and stuffed. The Viking Raiders got whatever comic Gimmick that the revival were supposed to get. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe because like I just don't get why they do that like the book these scary teams like really strong teams to. To be like that I don't know it doesn't make sense to me but yeah. Again run of the mill match. It was the aftermath of MVP greeting. Impressed and him holding the guys back to not be up cedric stuff clearly trying to sign Sedgwick, and then the man is back I've seen for ages. Titus O'Neil preparing for raw underground. which is self seeding the man's stack headfirst into the under the ring the greatest of all rumble Tanabe Roy underground these. Yes. I. Is it? That were rumble with pure entertainment. Yeah. I actually really enjoyed it. The greys were I did especially with that is bad. I will never forget that dairy was on the game ready for Roy Underground. And, then a sad one. We have a sad one Booby riot, the Ruby Rightly Morgan the rights aggregate, the Connex the winds tie to shop the loses had to disband. That was the match. and. Ruby right one with Crucifix One, two three. Okay. I know there are some people that may not like the iconic. They might find him unbearable I get that. But there are also some that don't want to. I. Don't think there's anyone though that would want to see them apart. Like I now why we billy cable just disappear like peyton voices. I don't think they're going to be apart. Are Using they're gonNA fight it. Is. I think they're going to push Peyton. I she's got better and better and better. They've already shown up on underground. There's no rules on underground. Maybe. I always thought of this from instead. Stipulated that the tonics can't be thing what have they just changed their tanking they. Okay. Things that always get random things get to me like. A stipulations not exactly specified with certain things. There's ways brown them. Just to leave open just in case it doesn't work I mean I do think they're going to try and give us a solo run because I have to say wrestling has been getting better. Watching is as clumsy as at times. Exchange. Maybe. I'll be good for ability to go back to Ed exte- maybe maybe it'll be good for them to try some stuff alone by just think everyone knows how close they are it just felt efusing credibly forced you know I don't know I just. As I say I know people might find him unbearable by those eighty one would want to see the iconic sexually split up. See whether do maybe just manage each other because they just can't team. Maybe yeah. Maybe Billy's about mouthpiece and I do think it's Rally. Maybe who knows but we'll have to say but as of now, the iconic can no longer team and riot squad are the number one contenders to Jackson Baseline, which is a scary thought for Ryan Morgan I'm not GonNa lie that's just frightening. then. Moving onto the mysterious. Before the match Seth and Murphy you obviously came out seth newsradio angry and he's Blaming Murphy for screwing, up toes into get out. Slap Him in the head tells me to shut his mouth kind of stuff. Seth really played this. He'll roll really really well, I have to say Murphy's played like his party really well. He's got the door coordinator set file just got the seth order they has. Literally literally like that Dominic clothesline Murphy from behind nosy going the ramp and looking back at rollins and ran down and got the match underway. He's very impressive for being really new to this. Yes. Yes and I I really do think seth rollins has been one of the best people to put him up against like on a rotation. He sells for him kind of got. You can see guiding dome from one moment into another. Something I feel I still feel dumb obey slack on like the storytelling in the ring like he's clearly talented. I WANNA see. Now, what next I wanNA see dominant go against someone else now sets kind of carried him in here Yeah the. Stuff afterwards like the mysterious firmly backstage and the mom looking like she's going to cry and I want them to start treat him like a wrestler, not a child you know. That that has to stop quick because they've told that story now we get it. We've seen it great for what next I WANNA I wanNA start to see something next I mean set saw the family packaging stumped more to be fair but as I say I think seth has done wonders for dominate is just what can dominate do now to build on it I think the me Are they going around that rates hurt. Yeah. I. Wonder Like I wonder. Yeah. Because I'm I'm assuming it was getting dragged on the tag matches and stuff like that. Elephants during the cereal. But at this point, the man is built with like paper clips and rubber bands he's. The most injuries I swear. All that goes through my hand the old don't train your on worries. I had surgery on my knee twenty five times. That you've mysterious Of Maybe choke. The engine see now because I think they have to move on from that a little bit. Dumb does and then we have obviously party show. Rav Underground. Ties. Be Up by reading. Titus Carnival winning underground. Bad. I don't know. Good to see Tyson that sort of Riddick Bosson and move by the way and he? Does Neil is now the David. Otunga. God. Do that. Why are you still with us? Oh, because you do other days outside of wrestling year, he's Cherry Stephanie. The charity stuff. Is Huge. Why are you here? Oh because you're doing pro bono boy word for us. A US. KINGTON underground. Pretty good. Then, we had a tag match, Tornado tag team match profits in Gaza on. With Zelina no. Beyond Kabila thought was a bit weird but. If Zelina was. Very pretty good match guard really well. Then the famous light flickers and? Retribution Retribution. Out. Yeah the jumping ring attack Zelina. Just kind of looks on. Shrugs and she punches one of them and. They make they be her out and. attack rest. Secure. Each is remain wrong. Recipes Roth now. Like. They didn't Denver on smackdown for the longest now like. Mcginn Baldwin Roster. Yeah. I mean Byron Saxton was very, very vocal to make sure they was we it was females attacks leader. Did you hear that was funny. The way he was emphasized. We know he's FEMA. Go. But yeah. So. Good security and. Adam Pearce he's yelling at security guards to get to their posts and staff it was it was pretty good. It was it was pretty good. and. then. Just. Juku. Genre. Underground. and. And Billy and obviously. ICONEX and billy goat kicked squaring face so. I. Think I I why would the? I. Connex. Go and do something else off being split up I. Don't know. Didn't make sense why they would go to underground. I mean, they got the characters to be able to. To fight stories mean there's good to see Jessica Juke anyway sort of a natural habitat and then it was a pretty good I actually. I actually really enjoyed the they did we've Apollo and ricochet and cedric I thought the whole thing. Is Actually, pretty good. With her business and Ricochet Cedric and stuff, I actually really liked it and felt like A. Story for. Roy Underground. and Angel Gaza was running away from retribution. Yeah. WHO KNOWS WE'RE GONNA get into what we think he's retribution after we get to the news. And then main event was the triple threat match Randy Orton Jefferson's kief Lee will get a title shot. What it ended Ivanhoe did it back I loved the end in. Rolling overly to cover. Give because you want brand you're when again. But the ending was good. Yeah I think. Yeah. I think it's nothing. Swore me. Yeah but you can't put. Her. Jumping the air like. He does nothing for me. He's got no. Personality when he talks, he's always. Brandy organ. Yeah by the ending him. So rolling overly. To take to pin seth was was amazing. You get behind him give me a legacy. Legacy on many. Latest you're so much better. All Year. Maybe I like I like the early. was like fighting and stuff. I. Think that was my favorite. But he was trying to take Alad like that one. He had a character, go with it and it was that he would do anything he could in order to. To win. Allies just like. I will hit you in my finisher. Global. A. Did I don't. I don't see that they could have made leave I drew yet or Seth West is jury. Kinda. Wouldn't made sense I think the right person one though it I know him a little bit biased. role. I didn't get angel houses be. All of it with him running away and. I duNNO I. It was a bit rubbish what they were doing with Gaza. It was convenient and Samoa Joe wasn't there because that's where they were retribution attacking by commentary. I didn't know there was lots of bits answered questions. But I thought it was solid. Solid. I don't think breaking up the iconic makes much sense. And we're undergraduate right I just I. She told the Grandma's better this week. Actually had a story. but yeah, that was this week's. Now we go quite news there is quite odd news. First of all the first one that I know is staffer Ali obviously Christie's release. I, haven't heard anything since. Verified. No I don't think so well as. You say he's contract is up in October and he asked for an early release. I think that's it was. So far but no one's actually said anything official I feel like if he does go anywhere, he'd be got to go to TNA like they were they would instantly door woman their exhibition. Yeah, maybe. And Maxwell in there. Are they. Don't see there being anywhere else to go over then TNA right now. But yeah. He has requested his release. And speaking of other releases. A Vanilla is obviously left. WWe I think that was right. Official yesterday wasn't it? Another yeah. Mental Health and apparently is mother is like really sick? Yeah. Because he said something he wants to do some charitable stuff and. His mother obviously himself. You oversee does a lot of other stuff. Anyway he's not going to be out of work I. Think he's been coming I called say how I was saying hill this is where I scoop up replace excalibur because you have narrow now on Jr Yeah that would be a good shot. That would be a good shot I mean he did say that at the moment he was. I'm just going. You add announced Ian. Wow. Agency. Why does I mean as because I mean I know it's Dave Meltzer. Dave Moses said there wasn't a big blow up just it's time to go while his mother's obviously in hospital and stuff and. Still going to be doing the Bella tour and showtime box in. But then we'll wait and see what comes next Awa. I think. So they've signed Wade Barrett and obviously now he's gone I mean these Wade Barrett going to. Step into that. Barrett's solid commentator very solid, very solid. And maybe even the Joseph could go to annex t like I wouldn't be shocked at that like it wouldn't shock me I, mean I like Vic Joseph, I'm a big fan of executive. You stuff onto if I was really really good. Didn't he got off crackle Moore. By. Yeah, he's still obviously rain about but waiver for now is not a bad shot because he is a very good commentator and obviously he's a commentator that could get involved if you need to I'm sure he can still wrestle wish she had to. Me Why don't think for. was. That's where they've snapped him up from. He was commentating on Nwea and now he's he's left that to come back to wwe. So. Interesting but yeah, maybe way is the replacement and I'm not I. Don't I don't hate it to. Do not hate it to and the other one, the newest free agent parent. Really. Know apparently they that's gotta be Dang because they pulled his marriage. Yeah. Brooke Listener is officially a free agent. So apparently, he's contract around out. WRESTLEMAINIA, which I'm assuming to be true. It's. Yeah I think if they needed him and if he wanted to wrestle there would be a cool and would be back. I think it's just going to be. Pay As you as you appear, you know I think that's all it will be. Now I don't see wrestling anywhere else if you wanted to wrestle with Kyoto. Deco Vince. So. Yeah. Pulled yet you have pulled orders merchandise so. A. Dead I did be interesting to see what happens but I. Yeah He. He's made a lot of money business. He can pick and choose what work he does now. And as I say I'm pretty. Sure. If he wanted to wrestle. E just Vince and say you got anything for me as a one off and if they lose some money at him, he would come back. I think I don't think he's like a bad terms. I think it's just they haven't done anything for him right now he's tall. Bri Gauge versus. Chess. Burke nesn rocket up AWA would be. Something else I just I, don't see myself. As I'd like to see you know if he was to go there. Jimi Hendrix's. Wants. You call it. Give me. Hampers. Kate. The cage. That would be a fight that would be a fight. Lashley. That's why I wanted. That's what I wanted because that would have been an actual. was never going to be a thing. You want everybody who is always like. Potion for that that was never. GonNa get it was. Never GonNa be at that. Now and it's A. Disappointment because on Piper. Lashley is a genuine contended mesler. Like, genuine. They've just not really crossed paths on a wrestling point of view. CHROMA WHY YOU BE A. Dog Feeling in the world. Yes Eddie because listener would like Haymond would have had to do both sides. And I would have had to do. I guess now this why haven with rains? Obviously, very much true. How are you looking at? There's rights like we haven't really touched on that. And Raines. Is Money that's money. So. You think it's full blown. He'll Roman like that's what they're doing. Oh, horse. They doing the hill to get him over again. So they start cheering eventually you know how some the? Relevant Business soon. Do they I think they need to change his music. Showed his dad. Forgotten. Checks detector. Yeah. Play back in the suit what some of his interviews and is some of these staff man that rains I liked that rains you know I think they need. You needs new music in needs. A new outfit he needs to is funny like normally intact team split up and someone stays around into a tag team light rain has become nothing. You know my genetic never change Christian never changed show to me when I split. Right. So you know why is rain still rocketed, but they do need to change his music. That is definite. Definite but Haymond with him less than free agent. But that doesn't mean everyone she's leaving out. WWe have. Signed Five fulmer evolve talents. So. This was posted today. So it was Fisher dot yesterday So Joe Casey is officially signed we'VE WWE Wasn't he like the longest isn't always the sees W. Champ isn't he still? With them. I'm sure he's with them. Anyway. They've also signed just Briggs anti-green Brandy Lauren and Kurt stallion obviously Leon rough resigned last month. The report says they bought the rights to evolve in a plan to sign several of that company's restless to development deals. Boys. Your thoughts about all of evolve coming. Do think that he's going to have a belief or an exte- stuff. I. Think as I said before I think that's retribution. Retribution going to be with evolve guys I could see it. I could see it. It would be a good way to introduce them. Is a lot of good talent on that roster. Access to. Yes evolve signed. Over The only one I don't think is. What was The. Other guy. Was the tremont. I think they're going to put him on the underground because he was more like. A W. Guy that would be his happened style. So I. Like. Doing like. Sort of underground guests will not death not. Seem like these hardcore underground notches on the world underground like using riddick Muslimeen reading seems to be an element down or underground. Yeah. So yeah. Okay. That sounds good. Guys I see them being retribution. That Fair Fair. I've been waiting now fifty one minutes. Bryan Alvarez and so you've been quite vocal on on twitter this week with your thoughts wrestling community wrestling people and I got a picture of bright is being blocked. What the hell happened man. Listen it's been a long time I've had enough of this dude he's not a wrestling fan. He is a mark, his dude who sits there he watches the show. and. He's like an Internet nerd. It's to the point that I could not tolerate anymore. I don't care about what the ratings are. I want to enjoy wrestling to enjoy wrestling. I don't care what show have, what demographic and what set me off was. Bannon some snarky. To be comet right after Roman. One God hold on because I had. I had it right before a blocked them I to. Roman won the title, but he doesn't deserve it. That's the heat. Oh Yeah is full action in I. Don't feel like anything bright average says he's like an opinion. Literally does it for reactions and reactions only I'm sure like Every week even when they haven't been on the same day I zoom tweet like an eight, hundred, thousand, a w zero, and you're like they weren't even on the same day like why can't you still do this light? But yeah. He's Just a kroll. Where does he come from? What's his history like? Why is he like almost relevant? Why is that name I always hear you know. I can't. Based Party so I wanted to. It's fair. Follow. Remember which one it just put. The problem with pro wrestling in twenty twenty is and I put twitter. At that just I. She yeah I caused Yeah I got trout trod people are happy I was just like but it's changed. Everything. People's opinion you know like h changed everything that everyone needs to know what? The. Research Alvarez is just a he's. A semi retired wrestler who decided to become a publicist. By say economy very good wrestler because I don't think I've ever seen him atrophies. and. Don't. Like port link. God. Bright over as not good. Not Good. So He's been blocked GIO will no. Longer I might send you pictures of his tweets every week now just to upset you. Can join the list was Ryan Satin. Yeah. Well the you ever find out what happened there. I I think I said something he didn't like and he just walked me. Stuff people like Gerardo believe it I believe it. I've. Said this from time to time I am. Living embodiment of Deadpool I have. I have opinions and I. Know and and yeah and you say like some people like hearing other people's opinion you know like people. That's why twitter is the reason like you can't even have a conversation about like what? So I think there was a twitter thing. The. The. Addition and I thought that I think that make it was re. Return if the cleaner and stuff. And the conversation. Diane. Abreu up and I was just like dude. That's why that thing was. He was wearing the losses. So my my argument is No matter what W W do. This dude is like an A. W. Stan. He's constantly constantly constantly constantly an W. Fan boy. It's GonNa. Be a publicist bega by publicists. Don't you one side things and x t beat a this week dot dot dot. I know there's no. Boy. Yeah numbers. Excuses. Excuses. But you find that with a lot like we watch few content creators and stuff and they will go opinions on wrestling and stuff I just I find that it doesn't matter I don't think aws been. Great to watch athletic. FRESH OPINIONS YEAH I agree I don't agree on this whole nine Jackson should be. Bandwagon Yeah, yeah me neither me neither. Like if you look at the list. Half she's the same amount as other people like why was that? None of this stuff is like retired stink be I feel like you know what I mean. There was none of that stuff we seth. I. Corporal Page again why did nobody getting. Real. Early. Becky. Lynch Becky Lynn was comes. He is hell at the beginning you know when she first called Kuda choose clumsy. Yeah. Alexia. Groped for number, moves rams why does nobody get on? yeah yeah. I, Don I didn't exist. Prog wasn't got the Middle Ring a review. Question. Randy ORTON SKULL But nobody had an issue with that. It's just like the cool thing I said to a friend. The cool thing is to hate Ni- checks that's it same as. Cool things dying shot afloat. You're not. If you're doing what you perceive as a cool they. Have Your own opinion in your own voice. Yeah exactly because like. Yeah. Just just enjoy it for what it is like dynamite last week so we could show like. I would probably be more wwe focused myself but I still watch a W and I still enjoy it dynamite last week. Really good wrestling apart from I dunno I was worried that Jake, the snake was drunk again because he was rambling like a crazy man. But Yeah I thought it was good I thought it was a good show. From. Need. To find a balance. Discord Gino, see like I've always my opinion in the vibe wrestling chats I. I was going to do this week believed pro wrestling was real. Rate your point kick really integral McIntyre to which I said where did you learn? Connects as much as Shane McMahon's face. Drew. Dude, he wouldn't be alive and he really. kicked in the forehead. Like absolutely not. Absolutely So I would have liked. This dude would. Give off. Like A. where he came from, but it's been like a good solid two weeks that I've had a head cold issue because he started last week where he was like. Off. The White Sox to banks she's a mean person and I was like, no, that's not you bakes the character body. Really than he sold us our. World Sales. Because she's grabbing women's arms. Really breaking. It would be a very different day to see her breaking someone's up but she's Not Doing it. Started, he said. She retired so. Broke her arm off I could. Guitar. Seven seconds off having a baby. That's pretty much was. Sarah log is GonNa play mum, and she seemed to have 'em pitcher so. I. Personally. Who's got an opinion I call you. Zoom witness I liked Jim Hornet. When Kate when j Cornet talks about the old days I don't buy cornet which talks about days. Yes. Yes. You should early Jim Cornet, on dark side of the ring like hearing stories from. White I'm not. I'm not going to tell you I don't. I listen to what he goes over his booking seats and. This is what led to this paper view and gives an insight and what was going on the back well. Don't want to hear is like days plopping flopping rest. Time or just don't park now. Yeah. Yeah. Don't do just stay stuck. Always. This talk. To anybody that Tristesse wwe nobody's forcing you to watch it yeah. Is All different. Resin companies five when you I can shut up. I don't know. I. Think. That's a good place to leave. You will find what you like. Better being dot dot dot growing. Fide You is we brought to the idea that you realize why we put that. We're making instead yeah. Now I agree with you as a site like the whole game. Tune now. Oh. Davor but that's why. He's another one. That's always you're starting march sources how? Your source. That is I. Read it was like a compiled list of things that he reported. That were wrong. And then like you never brought back up again, like just what did under the rug. With a Kennel. BEEN SIGNED ETHICS T. was that time they made it offered in. Twitter twitter wrestling wrestling world onto aries is quite place. The opinions of become is so many partners what sport it a little bit I because I think. I don't think the wwe product has been that bad. It's been better I I. Agree it was in adult place and he's still has a long way to go. I feel like it's getting better. I'm enjoying watching smackdown and raw a little bit more Dana. It's a new accident is constantly it's a new ever. You can get the attitude I ever again. Need to stop but setback. Not GonNa get it again and be it wasn't over there. Remember. Biscuit Montages Rock and Austin there was a lot of bad stuff was a lot a lot. Vic. Katie Vick. For every. Other store on there was like, oh, man I to tell you go watch that episode where Mankind Heidel there's a midst jingle on it. Yeah. Yeah, there is. Now. That's the thing you be engine. Say everyone complains about WWF actually run look when they run a very attitude story we've Lashley ru seven Lana they slow them. And that's my argument was like Yuping screaming for them to do what they used to do. There's your story like the Lashley Rousseff Lana. Thing is everything that the old attitude ever used to be. And you hate it and you bag over there. So what do you want to do like? You can't ask. To give it to you go actually know that Shit. Well, that's why be doing more and that's where it blows my mind it's One thing to share on him. Also. Mainly the what keeps giving the belt that rottweilers Alvin rate because this'll give a person a shot look like bronze fromm or Kofi Kingston and the fans why they care for it and they want it. That's right. You got it you. Got The bell now what an offensive joke Come on. I don't like it. and. That's what happened with the Kofi. Very Boring, very quick for me. Very. Boring. Very. Quick. Stuff and I was. Because he was the fan. High. Part of the fan is the case they wanNA watch the wrestler chase it. But then when he gets it. What are you want to do guys? Yeah. WHO's next to chase?

is the comedic relief in here he is he's the guy that breaks everything up like Ed Harris kills it Chris Yeah no if we're going to change roles here I'm just going to take over the role of Travis camp because I can understand what you're saying you're not slurring time with a nerdy like scientific sidekick and didn't they say okay so movie was ninety six he said he'd been on ice yeah and guys I'm back Travis has some sauce for the Gumbo and he's ready to rock well near as Saas no last week Taylor I'm GonNa get like a free his James Bond movie Yes they do thinly-veiled it to be like this guy

Y'all troopers and thanks for coming back involved Sean Connery and I promise I'm GonNa keep my Sean Connery impressions to a minimum no minimum hey we're gonNA cast Ed Harris Connery and then was thrown up becoming guy and Mike already been in some stuff I mean moonstruck now the that'll work terms he can audit this podcast he can be a pass fail as opposed to actual letter grade it goes back so I asked Todd so who was who was like the bigger carefree time like knowing that Sean connery was a damn name but as I ornery and then Nicholas Cage and so by midway through with a todd on my so is but I'm trying to think of leaving Las Vegas his he won the Oscar for that shoe Okay so but this was his first bad that totally knocked off my horse and you're not activated not okay again this is the second time I've been asked if I'm drunk I'm just walked out hit ghost rider vengeance nether which I would recommend to anyone on death row he had a movie called knowing which I thought was doc was he killed it acting wise yeah and actually even Sean Connery kill that even some cheesy I mean if under my dad's three Amigos large it that was one of the best that was like garrison Keeler we're doing what the hell what is happening like our in these films that sounds upsetting yes you've seen moonstruck though and we're with face off the next year ninety seven okay he nick cater that and then conair ninety seven so he was he you know you never expect during the like light my fire that the lead singer is GonNa pull winging her up you know it's like well you know you hoped and ballpark all right so he could play it off that yeah I was I was thinking that he'd been incommunicado that's why we hadn't heard Sean connery willing US I mean was this the up and coming of Nicholas Cage like was this was this a big role for him or or was a horrid is that the one where he knew the apocalypse was happening yes now there's one that he was also an called next where he had a bit of and they only had one senior not his fault one liners yeah but these cheesy when I was like man honestly Ho Larry's movie Yes who's come on ride that train was national treasurer was at like ooh he had gone in sixty seconds two thousand and then maybe it's like nick cage was like a known household name was in them the time he wasn't I mean nothing around Sean Connery who was you know the bond he might have done like one or two great films but then he does snake eyes and then and then he doesn't see millimeters among my word Nick doesn't carry the felonies the comedic relief. Yeah if it wasn't for Ed Harris and Sean Connery terrible movie which we'll get some ninety shit here in a minute but it's like you know to me that had some ahead to get me the Pentagon and one CONAIR was late nineties and early two thousands was national treasurer must have been two thousand one or two thousand four hundred and four Patrick Mason also gear it's like and then he gives majesty's and then he gets like put out the clinking clanking Alcatraz and he gets to like you know be giant James Mon one more time movies ever oh no no I know we've talked to that numerous times this is terrible and like after watching this film again today and my hate to say it like it's like it Harris also he's as like a sympathetic billon yeah he he does a great job of like Lana Zak man I almost want to root for him it's like Magneto you did some weird vampire Topgun knockoff called firebirds with Tommy Lee Jones with can't see my face but not happy and he was like what Frankenstein Cadillac or Frank Cadillac Casino Stage name was Frank Cadillac who's like right I know of talking wouldn't hand be I mean I I mean there's kind of a percent get me the president which is a great ninety thing it has some great nineties tropes including all of the guys everybody hunkered around like a speaker Oh you like the villain is doing villain shit but he's doing it for altruistic reasons like Banos or forgotten punisher come that same in it's like you know what I'll I'll pay for another ticket let's have another go around I'm not gonNA stop it's GonNa keep going yeah break on through to the other side you're also laughing out loud it had a lot of cartoonish violence in it yes yeah exactly I was waiting for written by Hans Zimmer plus his protege to look up his name but he had a German protege who like like theme and then his protege wrote the actual like music for the movie including Monroe is a he has like some weird character roles like moonstruck with chair and then peggy sue got married Catholic. It's yeah it's the two things I love Frankenstein and cadillacs that's pretty cool yeah yup terrible home nichols casing you switch it up a little bit this sounded like fledgling Virgin Virgin of pirates of the Caribbean the Pentagon and then everybody's like listening to static like in in there's always somebody one higher up so like Air Force One is like wait well who know a lot of irons in the fire and let's be honest about was being on let's be honest I tell you what senior but over here well played on the musical composition Jack Sparrow Nick Cage Sticks and stones loud they're basically the same person but I don't know what the key is uh-huh so yeah this was this was a good nineties action if you had a lot of cheesy like you know one liners and this is when all yeah this was ninety six he's in a movie called dragonheart over that yes which wouldn't terrible twenty two years ago this was written and sadly sounds like parents of Caribbean Hans I'm like Bro Key burst colored and I actually kind of enjoyed it because I had the short survey was based off of where you could see ten seconds in the future does sound like like I kept waiting for the team to complete itself but this had like the first like five or six of the trailed off fledgling who shocked by every response is especially from the rock it seems and join a brought it dynamite to doing good nick cage. I've obviously got Sean Connery on pretty well maybe I can't even take his face I think he's just he's always I'm in charge of the situation I'm in charge it's like there's always one step higher it's like hell's the damn chain of command it's called Dame chain I go you down to your freaking mind the way he delivers lines is like rope-a-dope lulls unit is false until I'm in command firefly reference Tiller which a great show and check that out it was on CBS the time the greatest car chase I ever seen it was like Oh my God there's so much happening here I mean now I would say I know what the French connection the hero man he's doing some heinous shit I get it I get come from want him on that wall xactly Yeah into what welcome back to Cinema Vino greetings day traffic talk was that one of his first big movies after bad boys I think bad boys was his first so sadly when I watched this I thought that was like but yeah it was entertaining cheesy way which I think now going back and looking at connor and those kind of movies at all kinds of the same yeah where it's like you know you love it but aren't so great and by the great I mean terrible line deliveries that I love Yeah Sean Connery what I was GonNa say oil I forgot Yeah Hans Zimmer Tim Zimmer of so the Batman Bill which I guess Price Caribbean was wife watch it with us and she was just like he just goes from released off don't really yeah exactly that's he sets you up virgins going to be the name of my Walkman and also my Moore's first books I need to work on kind of thing but that was also hunter he was like hey this sounds like parts of the Caribbean and outrageous to think that twenty years ago John Cusack to show up and realized that wasn't clear one thing about this that people may not know is that there's a lot of unaccredited riders the dragged true very true yeah no how be a Michael Bay you know his directing style is way are you waiting to hear it's the the Apollo thirteen thing independence day Arab Air Force One first one India Independence Day if we're one sean connery was doing a shit ton of nineties flakes too he was doing I night entrapment entrapment what's another he was doing wouldn't when I've seen now plays a dragon and a lot of job it was an early example yeah ass shit and McQueen Blues Brother's actually now right now like like after the born community yes remember which one I was like it was the very first one Ronin Gussie Ronan the very first born and the Ronin I thought I heard those johnny crazy clean your room but he's a big fan of like fans going on in the background but also anytime like a tell watch like two three of his eight transformer movies too I think that's the most recent films I watched of his formers and I was like oh I didn't realize this was a Michael Bay's signature but like his bag of tricks not change he's a big fan of the other people reactions to what he's saying but it does give so in with comic books right you have one page you can break it up Sion's that page just to squeeze in more story or to make it seem to pick up the pace of the film so I can see where it would work in fast Michael Bay was like barreling through it it does work in in like big action scenes I mean it makes you there's something can you have to get through a lot of dialogue you can or at smaller actions beats you can cut cut it up into like nine secs and I've heard that Harris during the shooting this movie was very frustrated with that where he could never get through his lines because it was like cut cut it's like two point seven seconds whereas if you go to like old school classic directors like Sidney Lumet's like twelve seconds fourteen seconds like were they you know put the cut it drove him crazy really yeah and so he I guess in Harris was not happy and during the productions moved because of how boom pole or something is is falling down you get a shower of like little fireworks sparks he used the exact same shit in the very first transit into like one full page spread if you're really wanting to convey something bigger deeper emotional was happening but if you're just having to people he said by just leaving the camera like in jaws with Robert Shaw his whole speech and it just draws you in and stuff and you get to see it's kind of frustrating I thought Pearl Harbor immensely frustrating movie to watch Michael Ukiah you can't follow it especially because that's a historical thing where you're Washington it's I can't like get in the flow of this from looking for stuff that I know is going to happen but you know it's not incoherently directed we're now going back and looking after having action scene yeah was knocking that movie that movie looking back on it was absolutely terrible except for the highway sees you have some skin the trolley director fucking lives he lives now this movie because he's blown off the ground do homeboys trolley goes last movie like Oh yes everything was going wildly out of control but that whole last third of the movie with that big CBS but it's like yeah it goes back to Michael Bay and you can that people have actually counted like the length of his like shots allege and let the cuts leashes where it's like during a chase scene and it's like Oh my God what do we need an old lady with a Walker Young I really thought that there was like a basement any winslow Carlin's arts yes I agree to an eye for me it's pretty frustrating the watch Michael Bay Movies Cameron people to leave at his like two seconds it's like hyperactive. MTV generation like ninety s short attention span cuts cuts cuts yeah not a cart full of watermelons or something at some point going to show it wasn't it was a cart full of like his truck full of water jugs people's carrying tickets like pains blasts across the street Oh my God to drive through it yeah hello gentle listeners go back watches Goddamn movie tell me how yes that was a whig he's wearing in this movie both long hair short he's wearing a tubing how does outrageous that Asian Jim from the office was in and I think you'll be chemical super free actually about thirty five percent Jesus Christ okay got me guys I mean what another thing that really needs big ups events film aw he has a weird sixty percent San Francisco on that was even the one where you is vacation yes you only live twice that kind of set the stage for the office where Jim Poses only matter actually I do believe that Eddie became a cop later on I do believe that he but yeah I mean he's Waldo no but no father no what they are because they go so quickly it's like the you you can't like ever get comfortable with the shot because you know it's GonNa cut in like a second or two and it tastes got the giggles wait hold on that that was five percents I'm sorry those why don't you give back the money that's the thing that no that is forty feet in the air falls on it siding he comes out waving his hat around not blood in the least know very mad and honey your freaking mind so anyway it may take a little bit of work it needs got about forty percent there you need to add sixty all the james bond movies he's willing to pay no shit every single Wala James Bond every single one of my favorite I forgot I mean you can't even so even short lease or the Entrapment Catherine Zeta Jones pay here was a whig but no you ever seen the untouchables with Kevin Costner that his actual here he's got he's got the full on shoe on Ant Man and the wasp agent Jimmie will what's here some of this Nick Cage you've got working and I thought about that it's difficult to do in that cage classic Cage Taylor I need you to set me up for this or asked me if I like your pigtails the reason that he was GonNa Kill God dammit the guy out into the San Francisco Bay it was like does he say and you guys can play a home now was a I don't like soft Shit guys I'm back at the top of my game right now I'm really glad somebody handed me this thing paper and said write some notes because I've got yeah Sean Connery's wig the Oh yeah here Hedda Gandalf or are we sure that was the short hair it sends an agent man fools white that was that was the forerunner to that shield agent Jimmy Woo James Woo Mike how he says that he has a Volvo and that's bauge but he does not even pronounce the be in Bauge like his his lips don't touch just want to say dealing my pigtails Kudos to you for not seeing color anyway trek soft shit I don't like soft ass shit I don't like wheat cash it.

"Are you hiring with indeed you can post job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash podcast. That's indeed dot com slash podcast. Hello and welcome to powerhouse politics on ABC news, political director recline, and I'm Lana Zak. I'm so glad to be here for my very first powerhouse politics as an actual contributor, rather than a listener is terrific to have you tell tell everyone about a little about what you do here at ABC news. You're all over the place every day. I'll over the place usually you can find me in over in the Senate, sometimes the White House covering all the big stories. And of course, you know, I love foreign news coverage. So we'll get to. I hope some of that today. We sure well there is a lot going on with Mr. Carl not joining us this week. We don't we have no information on his whereabouts that don't ask where we are not allowed to disclose. But there is a lot. Because this I think is a significant week in in a couple of different ways. Lana this is the week where it became clear. The how the Democrats are handling the Trump presidency. The congressional side we spent a lot of this year talking about the shutdown of the twenty twenty launches. Now, we see what divided government really looks like, and it is messy. It is going to be ugly. And I think signaled by the oversight committee last week with Michael Cohen, and now the judiciary committee this week with these Eighty-one letters that Trump associates, and and also organizations that are close to the Trump orbit. The Democrats are signaling that they are looking to look at everything Lana every single thing. I mean, when we initially heard about it, we understood that it was going to be more than sixty. She's big number two, which was huge at the top. We're like, whoa, sixty. And then it comes out on Monday, eighty one different people and entities with those requests for information. And this is really a wide ranging net that that Democrats are throwing out there. Trying to see what President Trump has been doing not just while he's been in office. But even before that. Yeah, I was surprised on a couple of different levels. And we're gonna talk to a member of the house oversight committee, ro Khanna from California who was part of the Michael Kohn investigation. Just. Just the questioning just last week and has a lot of ideas of where things can go from here for Democrats. But it did strike me that in some ways this list was unbelievably broad and a lot of ways it was unbelievably brought in other ways. It was almost to be expected. It refers few surprises on the list almost all of these entities and individuals are people or things that have been connected to in public reporting allegations of misdeeds either illegal or improper potentially instances of business dealings or self-dealing or just financial mismanagement other things that that this stuff's been out there for a long time. And it seems like they are now going to be they're talking about I can easily millions of documents that they were going to get back and to go as broad as that. I think it carries some pretty significant political risk. I've been struck by the Republicans. Of course, you'd expect have been very outspoken in saying that this is a fishing expedition. These are lot of witch-hunts. The Democrats are involved in a but for this all the come out before the Miller report is back and for it all to come out in this in this kind of white fashion. It does seem like the Democrats have some danger here and looking like they're just going after him though. I don't know that the timing would be any better if they did it after the Miller report came out because then the argument is either the mullahs report has a smoking gun. There is evidence of collusion. And then they then they would move to impeach ment or there isn't one. And then Democrats are asking for all this information, and it seems like the fishing expedition. But now as a direct response to not having what they wanted out of the Muller report. So I don't think that you know, I they're sort of darned if they do darned if they don't on that front. I think that there's also something that's very interesting. That's come out of out of this particular investigation this wide ranging investigation, which is a look at these financial crimes. And and in addition to the financial crimes this this allegation that the president and his family are benefiting from his time. In office, financially, and it is really unusual to be issuing requests for information. From the the first family from the president's sons and son-in-law, but this is a different type of presidency, and and both with his son in law and his daughter, Ivanka actually, occupying real positions within this administration. And then his sons functioning very much as political surrogate for for President Trump both on Twitter and out on the campaign trail, they're they're not just members of the first family. They are actually political operatives. And so it it does make sense that that they would be among those people being asked for information. And I'd offer this is an important kind of caveat statement in in. And I think it's a statement of fact, congress has a role in in oversight, a constitutional. This is the this is what congress does. And it, you know, maybe it's unfortunate. Statement that when you have a legislative branch that's of the same parties, the president you get less oversight. That's been the case DNR, and I think you saw it in the first two years of the Trump presidency. I've been reminded a lot in the last couple of days, particularly on Twitter of by the statement by then house oversight chairman, Jason Shaef. It's about what the the first two years of the Hillary Clinton presidency would have been like had she won back a month or so before the election when most people thought Hillary Clinton was going to win he was on the record saying that they had years worth of investigations teed up Hillary Clinton. She hadn't won the election much less been in office for a day. They were going to go after her time as secretary of state up were going to a lot on Benghazi there they had things teed up for literally years before she did anything. So. Yes, Democrats have every right to do this. This is part of what they do. And yet and yet for Democrats who were worried about how you frame up the twenty twenty election. You're allowing the president to well say. Something like this disgrace to disgrace to our country. I'm not surprised that it's happening. Basically, they've started the campaign. So the campaign begins, but the campaigns actually their campaigns been going on for the last two and a half years. So it's a shame. And the people understand when they look at it. They just say presidential harassment. Now, I don't know that any people are actually saying presidential harass me are now. The the origin story of that phrase came from President Trump. That's right. He he is he's got people saying it. But it look this. This piece of the argument, you can put this up along with the Democrats are for socialism and making us less secure and all the other straw, man that that he likes to to put up there. This one though gets has some has some bones on it. Now that now that these letters have gone out now that these entities will be investigated, and a lot of there is there is a zero point zero percent chance that all of these requests for documents will we'll come back without court fights, if some sort without subpoenas and fights it's going to happen. And there's if there's less than zero percent chance if that's a possibility mathematically, and I'm bad at math lot. If that's there's a less than zero chance that all of these investigations will get wrapped up before election day twenty twenty this is going to last literally years, and if President Trump is in office for longer than two years, this will be will continue well beyond this first term. And if he's out of. Office it make it handed over to outside entities or or still congressional entities in other ways. Well, there's I mean there's two things at play here. And I'm a girl who happens to be very good at math. I know that that's why we have. But you know, there is the political what is happening the race for the presidency that we're seeing unfold the president has announced his his campaign for reelection within the first year in office. He has been campaigning on Twitter that campaign has never ended. So we're seeing we're seeing that and we're seeing all the Democrats starting to announce in their political posturing, but then there's also the long term effects of this. And that's something that that all of US Republicans Democrats liberal or conservative need to be concerned about because it does set up a precedent for how we interact how the branches of government continue to either check each other or work in harmony or or completely devolve. Which is you know, if you listen to some of my friends with what's happening in Washington right now. But, but you know, when we're talking about. About these requests for information. And we already heard the White House come out very strongly yesterday than White House. Press secretary, Sarah Sanders, says thank you got the letter will respond to it. But you're not going to get the information not without a fight that that whatever happens in the course of this. And and that's also something that I'll say about the the resolution the joint resolution in in congress, and the Senate is is looking to vote on whatever happens in terms of how they were the White House responds, whatever happens in terms of how the Senate decides to check the powers of the executive that's going to continue in for the next administration and the next administration, whether they're Republicans or Democrats that will be notable when the vote comes in the Senate to try to block the president's emergency declaration. We know from would Mitch McConnell's even said that the Republicans have enough Republicans going to break ranks on that to review the president now, and that's hugely moments. I had asked President Trump about. That in the Oval Office just before he he left for Hanoi. And he had said at the time that he thought that Republicans were going to stick with him in the Senate. He didn't think that they'd get enough votes. So it is a big deal that they are now going to pass that of course, President Trump is going to veto it as very first veto as soon as it lands on his desk. But, but it is congress actually standing up to say that the power of the purse continues to belong to the legislative branch addition to being good at math. You're good at foreign policy, and we promise promise promising foreign policy discussion, and there's some really big headlines at this just a week ago. I'm blushing listeners just a week ago. The the summit in Hanoi fell apart the president walked away says he walked away without a deal because he says North Koreans were demanding a full lifting of sanctions, but it was a pretty amicable. Breakup, such as those things go the president is still very confident in the relationship. He has with chairman Kim now comes news this week that the North Koreans seem to be out of the gin. Looks like there's there are more efforts to to try to to build up their long range missile capabilities. This seems to be a pretty a pretty striking spit in the face of the president who put so much on the line and putting this summit together. And is still hopeful that we're we're we're headed toward a denuclearized peninsula. Isn't this remarkable? So that the North Koreans according to new satellite images have restarted the so hey launch facility that's a long range nuclear potential facility. And after the first summit between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un they dismantled it, and they even said to to South Korea leadership that that they'd be willing to allow you a US inspectors in to witness them dismantling this facility. And now after the second summit, they just days later, they have now put big cranes there. There's construction equipment there are supplies being brought in and it's all in plain sight. So this is either a negoti. Tactic on the part of Kim Jong UN or they really are moving forward with us. But in either case, it's concerning and you see in the aftermath the difficulty with which so many Trump administration officials have had trying to square the president's statements with all of all of the realities that have emerged since then around his comments about auto, warm beer in particular. But but more broadly, the this this summit, and this the outreach the North Koreans has really not sat well with a whole lot of members of congress on a whole lot of people inside the Trump administration, and I have to imagine with our with our allies in South Korea as well. I mean, President Trump continues to say nice things about Kim Jong UN the the dictator and leader of North Korea. And his comments about auto warmbier had his head warmbier. Parents actually issuing a statement that you hope no parent when ever have to go through first of all what they went through with their their son. But then. Also to be retraumatize by feeling like the president of the United States who had once invited them to the first state of the union as there as his guests who had used their son's name repeatedly. As part of the reason why we had to be tough on North Korea that that he would now say that he believes Kim Jong UN at his word that he was not involved that he didn't know about the torture that this young American college student had suffered at the hands of of North Korean government officials that that led to his death. And and in addition to that the Trump administration just announced that they would not be conducting their joint military exercises with South Korea. All of these things that it seems like the Trump administration is giving up for what in return for North Korea continuing their their military posturing, it it doesn't seem like a big win. Like, President Trump had previously tried to sell to sell it and briefly a lot. I want to talk about Syria because. There was a really striking image that the Washington Post unearthed a letter that a bunch of members of congress wrote to the president imploring him to reconsider his position on Syria. He announced the tweet that all American troops would be leaving that ISIS had been defeated on that. We were ready to move on and get out of Syria entirely. He has championed that caused trumpeted that 'cause he's had a lot of conservative pushback on that Lindsey Graham has good friend from South Carolina. Among other saying he's making a big mistake. We have seen senses of sense of the administration walking that back, but there in the president's own handwriting in in the way that he responds to this letter for members of congress that only he can in a big block leading lettering with his big sharpie marker old signature in sharpie. Just like he would sign a check with. Maybe he says that he agrees with all of that. And all of those things are being done. I it's a one eighty Lana from the position that he so clearly articulated just a couple of months ago, and yet the White House doesn't call it a one eighty. Don't say that it is a change. They say that that the president is drawing down troops. And we'll continue to do so consistent with with what he's what he announced. But it really does go to so much of what we've seen from this administration and President Trump making these bold pronouncements without consultation with his military leaders without consultation with members of congress. And then when he get some additional information everybody trying to scramble to make it all fit together in a way that doesn't jeopardize the US interests abroad. And in this case, the the quick drawdown of US troops in Syria had the potential to be catastrophic and we heard that from so many hawkish Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham, but we also heard that from our own intelligence officials and military leaders here in this country. Right. We're going to take a quick break. When we come back. We're going to be joined by congressman Roque Khanna, a member of the house oversight committee to talk about this blizzard of new investigations when it comes to hiring. You don't have time to waste you need help getting to your shortlist of qualified candidates fast. That's why you need indeed dot com. Get started today at indeed dot com slash podcast. That's indeed dot com slash podcast. Welcome back to powerhouse politics. And we are pleased to be joined now by congressman Roe Conn democrat from California representing Silicon Valley. You may have seen him on television during that marathon Michael Cohen hearing because he is a member of the house oversight committee and involved in in a whole bunch of different efforts at that committee and otherwise congressman welcome. Thanks rik. Thanks for having me on our pleasure. So congressman I want to start with where things left off a bit last week. And also where a congressman Jerry Nadler seemed to pick up the ball with these Eighty-one letters that are being sent out of the judiciary committee, the oversight committee last week seemed to lay the groundwork for a lot of these different inquiries what in your view? What is the end goal here? What it Democrats hope to get out of this, very confusing and often? Overlapping series of almost unprecedented in its scope series of investigations thing. Is that the American public don't know all the facts, right? These investigations, whether it's the Muller report Muller investigation, or the southern district of New York have been taking place, and they've been taking place in private, and I think the biggest responsibility congress has is to get these facts out there. So the American people can decide for themselves in the oversight committee. Our focus is going to be on two areas. One or the financial crimes that were likely committed by the president and his family in the reimbursements to Michael Cohen. I mean, Michael Cohen testified that the president was sitting in the Oval Office devising a scheme on how to repay him writing checks himself, directing Donald Trump junior to write him checks through the Trump organization, we need to explore that and get all of those facts out and second is the security clearances. I this this idea that Jared, Kushner and avant got Trump or. Getting high level security information, and it's not partisan. Look I've worked with Jared Kushner on the White House in office of innovation. I'm no problem with the work. He's doing there. But having him get sensitive information, which he then maybe sharing with NBS in Saudi Arabia affecting or policy there that is just wrong. And so those are the two areas, I think that the oversight committee will focus on cumbersome. Cumbersome. I want to play for you something that the congressman Nadler of the chairman of the judiciary committee said on this week on Sunday. And then we get your reaction to that to to get some sense of where things were going. We've seen real threats to the rule of law from this White House whether personal enrichment we white out seems to have uses power for personal enrichment violation the emoluments clause of the constitution. We've seen abuses of power in an instruction of Justice threats to the mullahs investigation threats to witnesses all of these have to be an abusive all these has to be investigated and laid out to the American people. So you just heard there. The chairman of the committee says power for personal enrichment violation of the emoluments clause of the constitution, obstruction of Justice abuse of power threats to witness as you added to that likely financial crimes is this grounds for impeachment. And if so why not is this all these investigations sort of dancing around the big issue, which is that Democrats believe. There's enough to impeach the president United States. Well, we have to make the case, and we have to make the case methodically part of that cases, making sure the mullahs report is public part of the case is through these committees. And investigations in the reason to make the case is my hope is that a reasonable Republicans at some point we'll say, this is a crazy and some action is required. But I think that being the sod ical is important you remember, I just didn't have history break. I mean, it was Richard Nixon the Republicans never turned on him until you had the tapes. And so I think people like Nadler are saying, let's be methodical. Let's build the evidence. And then we can decide what comes next congressman when you're talking about Richard Nixon that was a very specific incident that led to impeachment. This is such a wide ranging investigation. Eighty one different letters looking into financial crimes looking. Into a a whole list of different issues doesn't this run the risk of turning the American public against you? And President Trump continues to call it presidential harassment. The polling. I've seen shows that sixty percent of Americans believe the president has committed some crime either before or after being president and almost half believe he's committed a crime after being president. So I think that they want to know exactly what went wrong. I do think it's important for us to focus the investigations on three or four key themes, in my view, the first theme is his obstruction of Justice with the Russia collusion of the second theme is what exactly happened with his financial increase in in Russia. The third theme is the financial crimes that he may have committed and finally the abuse of power on security clearances. I think it's important for Democrats to say look there are three four key areas that were focused on. And a lot of those eighty one requests, they're they're not Eighty-one investigations. That's looking for investigation on these three or four key themes. But particularly the first two that you mentioned collusion with Russia. Obstruction of Justice regarding Russia financial ties to Russia. This isn't that already part of the Muller investigation. Don't you have faith that the special counsel's office is going to turn up anything related to that? And and doesn't it seem to lead a little bit of credence to what the president's claiming is is just making a political show of things when there's a investigation that is taking place in a nonpartisan way by the special counsel. I don't because the special investigation is private and the president's resisting the report being public. You know, maybe if the president said, look, I am open to the Muller investigation being report being completely public in having Bob Muller testified before these committees. And explain to the American public exactly what he found. Maybe there wouldn't be. As much need for investigations on those areas. But until we get the Muller report public, and until Muller testifies, the congress has a duty to inform the public about these investigations that are taking place, and the president should welcome that I mean, he should want the facts out there if you thinks that he's innocent commerce into my mind implicit in. What you say about needing to make the case is that not all of the public believes the cases made, and I feel like a piece of that too. To launch point is the potential for Democrats to go too far to look like this is harassment, and you look at those Eighty-one letters it really rehashes a lot of things over the last two years. And I think you would argue, and I think a lot of people would agree. There's a lot of pent-up demand for investigations, given the Republicans didn't show much interest in investigating a president of their own party. But the flip of that is that by going this broad by fishing off of all of these peers, you look like, you're you're just looking for something. And it doesn't seem to me tell me where we're wrong here doesn't seem to me like there's. Same kind of focus coming out of the at least the judiciary committee with these requests that you suggested out of the oversight committee. Well, won't be administration has done a lot of wrong things. And that's because you have a president who thought being president United States was like being a real estate developer in New York. And my guess is Donald Trump is used to getting whatever he wants in life any add a team of lawyers like Michael Cohen. And he said get it done, and they did well being president of the United States is very different you have oversight. There are rules. There are regulations. In fact, I remember a conversation with Nancy Pelosi early on. He said she said Trump is going to get himself in trouble because he just doesn't understand. How careful you have to be with the laws. And so here's the challenge we have he has violated probably ten different laws in in in many ways. I agree with you though that we have to be focused and and focus on the big violations because otherwise people may not be able to process everything. And that's why I think it's important for focus in my opinion on the Muller investigation. And getting that report public. And on and on what's going on in the southern district of New York, and the security clearances, I think those three broad themes are what will stick with the American public. So congressman let's let's change speeds a little bit. And let's talk about twenty twenty. You've recently signed on to the Bernie Sanders campaign as a coach hair, what are your observations? And what do you think your chances are heading into this big race? You know, he's off to a fantastic start better than I expected in terms of the crowds. I was just out in Chicago. Introducing him, and he had thirteen thousand people there, you know, last time he ran he when he started out. He had maybe thousands of people in Chicago, he had huge crowds in Brooklyn. He's raised all of this money ten million dollars and only a handful of those folks have maxed out. So it's a donor base. That's going to continue to to support him. And I think the thing that people underestimate about Bernie Sanders his ability to connect with rural communities with working class voters with many of the folks frankly who flipped from Obama to Trump. So I think he's going to be a strong contender. I mean, it would be foolish for anyone to to think it's not going to be a fight for the nomination. But I certainly think he's going to be one of the top three contenders. Congressman Senator Sanders, I think took us back to twenty sixteen the other day, he was on the view asked about Hillary Clinton and said. City pretty forthright that he doesn't plan on asking her for advice that there are fundamental differences between him and Hillary Clinton. Anyone remembers 2016 remembers that there were fundamental differences between him and Hillary Clinton, and he talked about them all the time. But or is that right of him to say, why why not why shouldn't he seek the counsel of Hillary Clinton the last democrat to to to seek the presidency to win the nomination and someone who actually got more votes than Donald Trump. Why not Washington Bernie Sanders we talking to Hillary Clinton? Clinton says after the election, I have tremendous respect for her. I've sought her advice on issues on Yemen. And I saw her advice on the internet Bill of rights. So I do think that she has had a distinguished career in public service. She's a a brilliant person and that anyone should seek her council. And my hope is that Senator Sanders would at some point certainly during the course of the campaign or when he is president. But you know, I think there was obviously a very spirited primary last time, but my advice to him would be to to reach out. And certainly where there are differences make that clear, but that to draw on her extraordinary experience and and issues where she does offer expertise and you brought up. Yeah. So I'd love to talk about that. Because you've authored legislation that would with. Ddrv US military support for the coalition there if it makes it to the president's desk, obviously, this would be the first time congress has used the War Powers Act to withdraw American forces. What do you think the chances are? And do you have any sense of whether this will actually even come up for a a vote in the Senate what we passed it through the house? I've learned how clever McConnell is a preliminary procedure. He got the proletarian devote that it was not privileged. It's a technical issue. But he basically is forcing us to revote on it Senator Sanders and Senator Lee now we're gonna have to pass through the Senate. They will we will repass it through the house of representatives. And then it will go to the president. And I you know, I was speaking with Lindsey Graham yesterday, and he said that he's concerned about what's going on in Saudi Arabia. Given the that they're supplying arms to Al Qaeda in Yemen. Given that NBA says basically admitted to being involved in kashogi killings. So I think that there is. Is a bipartisan consensus that our policy needs to change. I'm I don't know if the president would sign the resolution or veto it. But what I do know is that the president will make a shift in our policy and make it clear to the coalition that the bombing has to stop, and we could prevent fourteen million people in Yemen from facing famine. All right, congressman Roque Khanna democrat from California the co chair of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, a member of the house oversight committee, and now a powerhouse politics contributor. Thanks for being here. Appreciate having you on the podcast. Thank you. Thank you guys. Thanks for having me. All right. Thanks a lot so long. I think some intriguing issues I think are raised by that conversation around how the Democrats are handling this because I think if you talk to members of the committee, they do feel like there is a a need to focus on a couple of things. But if you look at Eighty-one letters that touch on every right every aspect of Trump's life, really. Not just the last two years but going back before that a lot of business interests entities around the transition entities around the campaign, not qu- not getting to the family members at least not just yet. But of course, there's other areas where they get it it feeds a perception that the Democrats are just looking for something when they have a lot of something's tangible smaller things that they could be honing in on. They seem to be starting very broad. Yeah. And I think that that's that's where President Trump's argument at this is presidential harassment starts to come into play. And and starts to gain some traction in the minds of the American public because nobody wants to think that the president is is just going to be investigated until they find something. And and part of what the president has been saying recently has been that he believes that that the Muller report is not going to show evidence of collusion with Russia or any crimes on his part with Russia, obviously other crimes have been revealed. But but he he's. He's making the case that that's why we're pub. That's why Democrats are now going after him. And we heard the committee chair Jerry Nadler say that that he felt the need to investigate all these things because for the last two years, he says, it's the Republican controlled house hasn't been doing their oversight responsibility. But it just the messaging of it doesn't seem to be. I think in some ways even well thought out by the democratic leadership because you hear you hear them sort of struggling to say, no, this is this is tightly focused. We believe that it's these areas, but when you get to two eighty one letters and use and you hear Coen's testimony talking about his his grades in school, it it does sort of seem like it's a fishing expedition than the counter argument to that as congressman Khanna outlined is that there's a lot of stuff out there. Because two years of a president who has broken every boundary every standard, and maybe some laws as he suggests has a lot of pent-up demand for investigations and in a quote, unquote, normal world or in a world, even where the Democrats had had control of the house of the last two years. They would have fired off letters like these after revelations a lot of these were just tied to two new stories things that people know about now, and they're just looking for more documents a lot of these documents have been produced or have been requested by other committees. So maybe this is just them kind of clearing their throats in a very loud way at the beginning of the congress. Remember? During that they lost a month or so due to the border wall fight and the government shutdown. It's taking a little bit longer. And that's why you sit here at the beginning of March. But this this does seem like it's a an important week week that we remembered for a whole lot of questions that are getting getting asked, and and maybe the political consequences thereof. Absolutely. And and you know, I think it's also so interesting to remind our listeners that that the impeachment word is one that the democratic leadership has said they need to stay away. From Pelosi's been crystal clear with her members, we're not talking about peach mint Nadler when he was talking to George Stephanopoulos was saying this is not impeachment. This is investigation different. I word, but when it's all leading up to that same potential conclusion when it looks like like, they are they are searching for something to take down the president with the leaden. Then it seems like it's impeachment. So let's call a a spate of Spade on. Yeah. I mean, the these investigations looked like they'd be at least taking the place of that if not leading in that direction. There's a lot of the members of the democratic base that want that. That have been desperate for that. And so they're they're trying to play both the the base and feed on that anger, and that that resistance, and then there are also trying to tell the American public. Don't worry we're we're not actually harassing the president. And don't forget twenty twenty years. We've probably like a lot of these things out there as well. All right Lana.

I'm Tom Llamas, and we begin tonight with startling new developments in the doomed if Yogi and airlines flight that killed one hundred fifty seven people and led to the grounding of Boeing seven thirty-seven, max planes, all around the world, French authorities, recovering voice and data recordings. You see them there before returning the black boxes teeth ups officials, the country's transportation minister telling reporters.

Here's ABC's Jillian McFarland with details tonight. A startling announcement about the seven three seven max disaster. If yo- as transportation minister declaring the crash shows, quote a class similarity with the lion crashing Indonesia in October. This after reviewing preliminary data from the black boxes if these the opium's know that they're. Parallels between these two crashes speed is of the essence, there's no sense in waiting a month. It only endangers the flying public. ABC news has been told the initial data has not been verified but data from both incidents right after takeoff shed, the planes jolting up and down radically shortly after takeoff by and line flights experienced drops in similar intervals before crashing just off the takeoff. It was this data that triggered the FAA to join the rest of the world in grounding, the seven three seven max fleet it matched too closely to the Lionair trajectory to figure that they weren't similar. The captain of the doomed Ethiopia flight struggled immediately after takeoff. The New York Times reporting that within minutes he called the tower in a panicky voice break break request back to home. The jetliner crashed three minutes later the max new airplane. There may have been some design flaw in the max that led to Incan. Junction with pilot error one of these mishaps if that's true it'll be a real black guy for Boeing since the October lion crash. Boeing has been designing software update to strengthen a safety feature. In a new statement.

Now, towed and poked, the fate of the world's most popular plane hangs in the balance for Boeing tonight in Ethiopia, a heart wrenching reminder of the human toll families of the hundred and fifty seven people who lost their lives sobbing over the empty coffins of those you parish in this latest crash chillier McFarland joins us live now. Julia those families we saw them. There are worried travelers are worried all looking for answers, and there's late word tonight from the SP on what's happening with the quizzical data from those black boxes. That's right.

The Barrett Brief Let the Simping for Kim Yo Jong Begin
"Kim is wounded. I'll give you that one that. Yeah that's hard to read the Hash. Kim Jong Weight is he not know because his last name is on. Okay Anyway. So let's get to the We Have A. We have a two minute clip here talking From experts in in South Korea or talking about the North Korea issue. I want you guys to listen to this. Just to hear the talking points is GonNa be. Well he's reclusive while we have sources and all these other things pushed up China and South Korea. So let's take a listen to from. Cbs News here in the verb refunding crusade channel in the last live radio station standing. Hi Everyone I'm Lana Zak. There are new questions about the health of North Korean leader. Kim Jong UN after his absence from Army Day celebrations in North Korea. On Saturday. This is the second major holiday that the supreme leader has missed in recent weeks on April. Eleven state run media released images of Kim Holding Corona virus. Planning meeting four days later. Kim was uncharacteristically absent. During one of the most sacred holidays in North Korea missing the day of the Sun celebrations which honored the late grandfather and founder of North Korea. Kim Il Sung so in his absence. Rumors have circulated about the supreme leader's health. Some have even questioned. If the North Korean leader is still alive so for more on this. I want to bring in Alex Ward. He's a staff writer at vox covering international security and defense issues. Alex we know that Kim has preexisting health issues. What are you hearing is the latest on his health and well-being so we're still in the rumor phase that said there are reports that there may be Chinese medical officials coming into North Korea to perhaps consult on his health status but the rumors are really everywhere at this point they range from is just fine and recovering a nearby facility that he's gravely ill and maybe birger death uneven that he is dead and so it's really hard to know right now. It's all speculation but at the moment the notion of Oh he may be in real trouble. That seems to have dissipated more. In recent days. North Korean media has been extremely tight lipped about the status of Kim. Some outlets have even gone as far as publishing some of his old statements in an effort to maintain a sense of normalcy. Can you tell us explain to our viewers? Why we're so in the dark about what's actually going on there so a couple of reasons the first would be that intelligence is really hard to come by. North Korea and so it even though the United States of intelligence officials. I speak to say we're doing okay. We have enough stuff is always really hard to know the inner workings of the Kim regime and especially his Alvin. Who's around the other? Is the culture of secrecy in the country. Every piece of information is tightly controlled. There's a large propaganda campaign a lot of what comes out of the country's based on rumor and so it's hard to confer really anything especially something as tightly guarded as the leaders house so between a lack of information and the way North Korea actually operates. It's just really hard to get a son. So what's going on in that country? And and then they go onto another seven minutes of him pretty much giving that exact. Same answer one thing. They won't tell you that newer in in North Korea so about six point five million cell phones in in North Korea a While they may not seem like a lot information can get outside of the tightly controlled narrative that the North Koreans tried to put down now. We have this article. We have a couple of articles we're going to give you the headlines on a couple of them Just to give you an idea of how the Western media is worshiping The the ushering in of Kim. You'll young and somebody hasn't Chairman Chris. H. Dot Com last year. What about the wife? This would most likely not not most like let me tell you. This would volunteer. The you're not you're not blood you don't count right. You don't have the blood of the Kim dynasty flowing in you so you can just take a backseat. We'RE NOT GONNA kill Ya. You're fine whatever. Go Away but you have no claim to the throne. You have no claim now. There is an older brother of Kim and a book. Kim Jong Hoon and Kim Jong Kim Young but he's kind of an effeminate narrowbody who doesn't want anything to do with all Iki Nicky. I don't WanNa do any of ood violins. He's whatever Kim wants to do. Kim Can run the country. Fine so you have that but first headline here from the Telegraph Dot. Uk Don't be seduced as the worst vote commies are by North Korea's Kim. Yo Jong then. We have from the Daily Mirror. Kim Jong on will be accepted as the next leader of North Korea regardless of her gender a tow talent totalitarian expert professor. Natasha Linden stod. Who's a woman shock off a only because she's like oh they'll totally accept a woman says the woman because their families are viewed as gods in the country? Here's the problem with that The men are viewed as gods in the country Super Patriarchal in North Korea. And you can have the Kim Dynasty coalesce around Kim. Yo Jong you can have a lot of the military coalesce around her. All you need all you need is one general one general to get To lead a counter protester a counter coup or a claim to the throne. And then you're gonNA have a civil you're going to have civil unrest between these two. Because here's the problem with Kim Jong Kim Yo Zhong. She is insane. She has grown up in the worst family. You can grow up in as far as trying to get attention for what you're doing or trying to get daddy's love for much more baseline the people who are are Looking at her this this article from the daily the Daily Mirror. Chris us. Let's just read this for my. The sister of North Korean dictator. Kim Jong Hoon is lying in. Wait to seize power. If for sibling. Dies Kim Yours? Young could be even more ruthless than her brother has been during his eight year rule. Why because let's say she does win some kind of civil conflict some kind of Challenge to the throne if you will. What do you think she's GonNa do do you think she's going to be merciful or do you think she's GonNa clamp down hard to In the words of Eric Cartman. Isn't that Matt Night? She will have no mercy. No Mercy Danny Buddy and we're not really talking about a group of people in the Kim's that a merciful to begin with But Professor Natasha Lineage Dot says that they will just accept her. I'm sorry I don't have a degree into -Tarian Regimes Natasha. But I don't believe it now talk about that more in a second let me talk to you about foundations restored Catholic perspective on creation which you can get crusade channel Dot com slash. Adam like I said before to seventeen. Dvd or streaming event they can get a crusade channel DOT com forward slash. Adam you can sample the first two episodes for free at CRECY JANELLE DOT com forward slash. Adam where you can learn in his visually stunning presentation of PhD level material. How to refute all the modernist errors that result from evolution. I mean you've already watched every show you could. You might as well learn yourself. Some stuff crusade channel DOT COM FORWARD SLASH ADAM CHANNEL DOT com forward slash atom. Now this woman professor Linden's dot supposedly has a degree. She's a professor and she legitimately says I don't believe that her being a woman will weaken her position if she takes over. I would like to ask professor Linden shot how much time she spent North Korea. Because I haven't spent a Lotta time North Korea but I'm pretty sure they're not just going to be like okay. Yeah we all we only take men for Lita now you women woman leader. Okay no no you have to understand the generational brainwashing that has taken place. Not only that. Let's bring this down to another love. We had generational Brainwash Nets Dagan blaze. Let's look at another angle. Do you think listener of the bear. Brief here on Crusade Channel. The last live radio station standing that every single one of the military commanders will listen to her. What about men within the aristocratic class because there is a very wealthy aristocratic class within North Korea? Who Know who know that she will stop people out who challenger who could absolutely who could absolutely up end. They're very comfortable way of life. I don't think for a second that she would be openly accepted by everybody. I don't think four seconds she would. So we transition to this article by Julia. Biard D- of the The Telegraph Dot. Uk. Don't be seduced as North Korea's Whoa commies are by north by By the worst we'll commies by North Korea's Kim Jong Hoon North Korea has for seventy plus years of his experience been led by three generations of madman but if the current international media is to be believed that's about to change with Kim Jong coons health and question. The world has been looking to the next leader with a lot of the hubbub pointed towards Kim's younger sister. Yes she's been public presence and made speeches and she's she's Been the focus She's always been with him but I think that's more for family unity. Once again I am not. I am not an expert in totalitarian regimes. Like the professor says but I do understand that if you have three generations of of being indoctrinated in a patriarchal society and then one day out of nowhere it shifts and it's like yes. I know it's an Asian accent. It's not. It's not a Chinese in Asian accent. Oh yeah now we want now. We have women okay. Let's not let's not how it goes. It's not how it goes and some people are saying rich. I think your little off because you know just because he's gone he's not dead. Nobody knows people are trying to tell me. Oh we've seen his special training that he's in. The North. Korean leader has a very special train. Like pretty pimped out. Trae because The leader of North Korea has great stuff while the rest of his people starve. His train has been part for a week off the coast. Oh but he sent a special letter to the workers of the the brain for the workers of the Tourist Zone. Oso. The Kim regime sent a letter out. Oh my gosh. That totally Bruce's that he's alive.
