Does Paxlovid Cause COVID Rebound?

"And doctor Siegel said 79 years old with heart disease and A-fib, he could have mild symptoms, but it can turn severe pretty quickly. He said, giving him pax lovid. By the way, I keep saying pax Levi, I think the way they, I saw admiral Gerard this morning, he said, pax livid, her pax lovid. Doctor Siegel agrees with that treatment. He said the rebound, there's no point that it's the drug causing the rebound, Doctor Fauci had COVID rebound. After taking pax lovid, so did my friend Joey Hudson, Joey was prescribed pax lovid after he tested positive for COVID. Joey had some pretty, you're not terrible symptoms. Peg had some pretty tough symptoms. She was sick. She was real sick. A couple of weeks ago. They both recovering fine though. Peg is negative. Feeling great. Joey, again, got COVID rebound. And doctor Siegel says, when you get COVID rebound, you get a second round of pax lovid.

Why Did Jack Posobiec Just Go to Ukraine?!?

"Jack posobiec is, I don't know if he's back from Europe. He might still be in Europe. Jack are you still in Europe? Charlie, I can report that we have returned. We are back on the territory of the United States of America. This glorious land. You got your rights back. Congratulations. So believe it or not, man. We were not asked. Two and a half weeks, we were gone, not asked once for a COVID test for a vaccine pass, anything like that, either going into Europe. We were in ten countries or coming back to the U.S., not ask once. Not ask for your papers, not even going to Ukraine? Not even, oh, no, they didn't answer anything going to Ukraine. Just passport. Well, I want to ask about that. So you did the scenic tour of Europe. You went from Rome to Hungary. To Davos to Geneva, to Poland, and then you ended up in Ukraine. Let's start at the end. Why did you go to Ukraine? Oh yeah, hey, Charlie. I went to Ukraine last weekend. I didn't actually tell anybody I was going to go. Especially your turning point USA productions team. And I asked our teams, I said, do we have war insurance? Okay. Well, there were a number of people that did know. One person on the production team did know, but we were trying to keep this. It did make it all the way up the ladder, but that's okay. So how is Ukraine right now? Besides awful and terrible. Right? That's that main city. We are seeing a lot of western party. Western reporters, it's directly across the border from Poland. My family lives just on the other side of the border in Poland, so we were visiting with them, stay with them. And then we went across the border the next day. Levi still hustling, bustling city, very open, very free. We were there on a weekend, a beautiful gorgeous city, but then as we got further and further east, we ended up taking a night train down to Odessa, and then we're able to take a car through the checkpoints. That's what you're seeing in this video right now into the city of Mika liev. Now Mikayla is only a few kilometers. Just a couple of miles from the front lines where in Russian occupied territory of her son, which is the very next city over. So we made it about as far as the highway to her son and we were essentially stopped by military saying, you know, we can not allow any civilians to go further than this point, but the city of mikolaj itself has received shelling, has been struck a few times. In fact, it was struck just the day after we left the morning after the shipyards there at strategic shipyard city on the Black Sea.

"Now, the last category is the complicit church. There worse than the I want more cowards than I would want people who are complicit. Now, who are the complicit church? These are people that fly the LGBT flag outside of their church. These are the people that fly the BLM by large mansions flag outside of their church. These are pastors that were so willing, you know, people like Levi lusco and people like Judah Smith. I know I'm not supposed to say their names. Again, don't care. People like Rick Warren. People like all these people, right? Who were so fast to go march in parades for BLM to make sure BLM could go buy more mansions and pay their family members. But they have not lifted a finger for the unborn when roe versus wade is about to be repealed. They won't even be bothered by it. Like, come on. And so the complicit church, this is where things like, oh, Jesus was a socialist comes from and all this just nonsense, right? And the question is which church do you want to be? God wants he did not give us a spirit of fear, okay? Joshua one 9, very clearly. Do not be afraid. It says 365 times the Bible. And so why would we be anything less than a courageous

Levi & Jennie Lusko Analyze How Suffering Is a Gift From God

"Of the difficult topic of suffering and seeing it as a gift from God. Yesterday I said the same thing. It's hard for the modern church to grab that because I thought the exchange was I trust in Christ and my life gets pretty easy and I get blessings and you know I'm not diminishing any of that because that's part of the Christian life too. But we've got to embrace the other side of this that's suffering in Christ. He said you will suffer. Right. For my name. Well, I just think of James when he says consider a pure joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that it produces and then he lists all these things. And I think that that is just, again, like Levi said that lens of faith where we just have to see that when we go through suffering, it's actually producing in us perseverance. And it's producing an endurance and it's producing in us just this stronger faith and trust in the lord. And I think that as we go through these things, it's so hard and yet there's a beauty in it. And I think sometimes we just want to have the good and the blessing. And like you said, there is blessing for the believer. There's strength for the believer. There's a beautiful abundant life for the believer. But that also is blended with pain and sorrow and suffering. 'cause look what our savior endured. He's the one who suffered. And the goal of our lives is to become more and more like Jesus. So it's that blending of the beauty and the blessing with the brutal Ness and the typical. The reality that every blessing you mentioned and more, God wants for us, it's just all the blessings you want are on the other side of the trials that none of us want to face.

Levi Lusko: Hubble Space Telescope as a Spiritual Metaphor

"You like to talk about the Hubble telescope, how do you use that as a spiritual metaphor? It's a great story because the year is 1990 and Hubble has just been launched and they spend a billion and a half dollars on it. A lot of people thought it wasn't worth the money. But they said, no, if we can get this thing out there above the atmosphere, it can see the heavens and broadcast back to earth what it's seeing on obstructed and will have a greater understanding of our solar system and universe. And so they get this thing launched and they fire it up and everyone's sitting at NASA in the first image loads and it's blurry. Second image blurry, third all the images are blurry. It's worthless. It's very good at a lot of things. It just can't see very far because they miss calibrated the primary optical component, making Hubble basically nearsighted. Hubble needed glasses, guys. So what they did was they loaded up the same lens, but with the same problem backwards, and they loaded it up on space shuttle endeavor. They caught Hubble. Now mind you, it's moving 17,000 miles an hour, 366 miles above the earth, and they put the basically they put a contact lens in front of it. And when they fired it up afresh, all the images became crisp, and until James Webb telescope gets launched, presumably in the next 12 months or so, Hubble has been and remains the gold standard in telescopes that have ever reported images back of the deep space field, et cetera, et cetera. The story is cool because it shows us this. When Hubble was looking at the universe and sending blurry images back, the images it was seeing were in 3D. They were beautiful. They were crisp. The problem was the lens. And the lens it was looking through. And I think for a lot of us, when we look at our lives and we look at the pain that we face, we see blurry. And it's not that the things we're looking at are the problem. It's to how we're seeing them that is.

In the driveway my mom's house. So now you walk in. So my brother runs out and says, lenya needs you. And so I run in and my mom had asthma, Olivia, our oldest has asthma, Levi has asthma, it's kind of a normal thing in our life to have inhalers and albuterol nebulizer and everything. But she wasn't taking her medicine that night and my mom, I walk in and letting us sitting on the counter and my mom's trying to give her the nebulizer, but she just wasn't taking it. And so she turns pale and just passes out on the kitchen counter. Levi runs in because he had just parked the car. He runs in and just immediately he's so good in these situations just starts doing what he had learned of CPR and mouth to mouth and I'm just like all of a sudden realizing, okay, this is a bad situation. I'm praying. It's going to be okay. It's going to be okay. And we call 9-1-1. And it's winter in Montana it's December 20th. So the roads are icy and it's snowing outside and it's so the paramedics finally come and come in and take them to the hospital. And I just felt this cold feeling of like, this is not happening and this is not going to end well. I could just feel the grimness in their faces. I think when they were working.

Levi & Jennie Lusko Explain How They Found Their Way to Montana

"So let me take you to a moment in your marriage. I think it was fairly early on when you had this crisis of vocation, maybe if I could call it that the vocation of location, your successful pastor, John Kelly. Yeah, Dr. Seuss, I've read a few of those. But then they were stripped away. Too soon. Too soon. But your pastor in California, you're thriving there. You're very successful. And you bump into somebody who says, hey, you might want to think about coming to Montana or Idaho. Montana, yeah. Yeah, we felt like California made sense for us. You know, all our lives, I actually grew up in Colorado, raised in New Mexico, Jenny from California. We ended up in Orange County. And we were just a mile away from the beach, you know, a couple thousand people in the church we were teaching at, it felt like it all roads had led to that moment. Season passes to Disneyland, you know. It's where God wanted you. It felt right, honestly. And at that point, there came this incredible, ridiculous idea. Go to Montana and start a church. Now, we're not ranchers, you know, I don't look like Kevin Costner. You know, I just don't, it doesn't, it didn't make sense to us. And yet we couldn't, you know, when you know God speaking to you and it almost irritates you because you just know he is and you almost wish you could pretend you didn't hear him. We felt like we needed to move to Montana and started church, which didn't make sense.

Lady Gaga's 'House of Gucci' Is a Bust

"Let's talk about the House of Gucci. It's getting killed by critics. And that has to be killing Lady Gaga because I think she's gotten addicted to getting great or near great reviews and her acting work. I mean, I don't want to see her in fucking Tony Bennett saying, I know what's coming on in the next couple of days. I've been seeing ants for it. I'm not paying attention. When is it on? Where is it appearing? I don't want to know. I just think it's so silly when a young spry pop star sings with an old decrepit man. I love Tony Bennett, but no one can listen to his music anymore while he was alive. But he didn't die right. He's almost dead. I forget. I know he's right there. He stops singing. He retired. Thank God. You can't keep singing people. I mean, do you just want to see him walk on stage and say, hi, I'm Tony Bennett. Is that all you care about? You know he can't hit those notes anymore. Just get his albums. Don't make the guy sing anymore. But Lady Gaga did this thing years ago, okay, Tony and Levi, okay, great. It's a cute novelty thing. Enough. But now she's in the House of Gucci. And look, I love that she's Italian. I remember when she was named Stephanie germanotta and she was a hostess at a restaurant in Greenwich Village called Palma. Great restaurant. She had this ability to sing that nobody knew yet. She knew, but she's turned into a magnificent singer and a decent actress. I like the stars born a lot. House of horrors, people dig. I haven't seen it yet. I heard it's pretty good with her in it. She did not nail this Italian accent. I told you the second I saw a preview. Nope, don't go near this movie. It's gonna be awful. It's gonna be so much of a charade, I said Adam Driver is too Jewish to play an Italian. I didn't know he was Jewish. To me, he looks like as my father would say, his face looks like the map of Israel. He just looks like a Jew. There's nothing wrong with that. There are plenty of people Dustin Hoffman looks like a Jew. Plenty of you guys look like a Jew and plenty of people look Italian and Puerto Rican or whatever. Irish. He looks a Jewish. I can't believe he's not Jewish. But he still mastered the Italian accent better than Lady Gaga.

You know that there are time. When bruce's music you know speaks to us but as as a recording this It's it's in august and On saturday night. I was Sara hickman was playing at eight. It's pub and it was the first live show. I'd gone to since the pandemic and Hearing her sing. Live music and colin boyd. Which is another singer. Songwriter from dallas opening for her. It truly felt like the the tonic. My soul needed. You know like like alloy cream like when you've got the sunburn and you put that on in cycles. He'll so Nicely done sir. Nicely done thank you Yeah my my bands radio public. We had our first show back in almost two years and this was a couple of weeks ago on july twenty. I believe and we had our first rehearsal in two years two nights before and i. I had a meltdown like just nervous meltdown. Afterwards because i thought i specifically sounded terrible just scratched my throat up by I was having trouble playing the guitar and singing the songs at the same time and trying to kind of provide a lead Because i'm more like a rhythm lead player and So it's just like oh man we actually have not done this in a while and it shows and a guy the other guys were great but once we got up there and we did the show. Just all bets were off. It felt so great to rip the aid off and just be out there performing singing it just there. There's something powerful about being in a room or live. Music is happening lots of times. I i when i go out. I don't care it's something that other people would consider bad. I just there is something about an experience of being there with it. Giving that person your energy to getting it back And then there there surprises. That happened with I think of a springsteen concert. I went to the beauty is that is that you never know what he's going to play except you can. You can still go and hear songs that either. You skipped over before you never heard and and i always think of i think i probably skipped over the song longtime coming. You know for a long time and came out. He played that at a show in anaheim and it because it was so different from everything else that was going on and i wasn't familiar with it. That's when something that stands out. That's when something just smacks you right in the face and you get it at a time where you were meant to receive it. Ga- it One of those lines and that Sara hickman does not Has did not write the song we are each other's angels but She covered it and There a line where it says We are each other's angels angels and we me when it is time and there is that you know that song like for example i was independent. State was not a song. I felt passionate about any way at all right. I just It was a perfectly fine song you know. And then when he did the river tour this latest time where he was doing the river in its entirety and it just all of sudden hit me that at sixty eight sixty nine whatever was during that time he was probably older than his father was when he originally wrote the song and so now then he's actually singing. This could be from the father's perspective when he wrote it was from the sun's perspective of the child's perspective. And this song just it hit me and now then i would put that on my list of songs that just mean a lot to made the just the idea of two people loving each other immensely. But just don't know how to say it so i think that's very well said that just sometimes the song finds you where you're at the time and they're in there is magic. Yeah If i can't i wanna throw something in about lane with his father. There are two things that i just remember. Most from the book that i thought were great stories And one of these is included. Includes in the in the broadway show at at times. I know it's the story of his father driving down to to have a conversation with them right before his first child is going gonna be boren roosters kind of getting what but maybe he just needed to hear from the head. It's so beautiful. It makes me tear up. When i hear it on the on the broadway recording and then just another another story about his dad that everyone is always glosses over but there is a chapter in the book. That kind of ends with bruce just casually saying that easy. He accidentally gave his dad crabs on a trip to mexico and nobody ever brings that up or wants to talk about. yeah like what. Wait a minute there were. What's the rest of this story verse. Yes My son likes the not the part of the story that his dad wanting to pay for everything. You know that this is on me son. You know even though you know brusett had the financial success the dad wanting to say. No no no i want to be the father. So that's nice You've got another one for us okay. Great I'll do one more. I feel like i'd be. I'd be dumb not to direct people to a place where they can actually buy a song absolutely laying or probably smart. Yeah so If you follow me on instagram levi at lp and the rpo for levi petri radio public or you go to band camp and look at levi petri or radio publica. We have a song of you know everything is up there but newer stuff that we released back in december. We're going to do another official push later on. But we didn't early release of s- couple of recordings we did during the pandemic and one of them is a song that was inspired by the gallagher brothers from oasis the ever bickering fighting feuding gallagher brothers And it's called the brothers rock and roll. And i watched a documentary about them as i was traveling from glasgow scotland to manchester uk. A big fan of the whole manchester music scene with the smiths Joy division stone roses new order oasis and I this documentary called supersonic. Just.

"Analyzing how a guy a triple backflip on a dirt bike ka. That's crazy yeah. I think one of my favorite pictures of you. It's probably goes back to that. But there's a picture of you doing a backflip. And you're literally arms on the bars completely body extended underneath like you're almost holding this sled above your head. You know what i mean. It's like the rattus picture. And it's like my absolute favorite picture of you over the course of your career but you completely just like hanging off the sled like you know the sleds up above you and you're completely vertical like standing holding up above your head. Almost you know we're always. They're always fun trick to do. I mean i always enjoyed extending the superman. Flips is as far as i could I had to just because i'm so short. Otherwise they. If i didn't do that big. They looked so they didn't look very cool. Especially when you have daniel bodine who's You know he's a pretty tall guy and he stretching them things out.

"Happened in areas at one of those. After you're safe you call me like yeah. I had an accident. But i'm good or are they. Actually there watching this happen so Mom and dad king. I think they came two days after that but they found out they actually fought out the worst way they found out on social media. That's my mom somebody. Somebody reached out to our Facebook or something. Because you know we're shooting all this all this stuff right in duluth right so it's like on a monday. I'm out there jumping these barges and there's literally on the. We were jumping from minnesota to wisconsin across these charges. And there is a a gentleman on the other side on the wisconsin side videoing and he sends me the video on instagram. He's like oh man. I had a rough day. And i'm like i. I met their vir. Be all at the host for staying on the doctors working on my ribs and trying to get me loosened up and whatnot and i'm like oh my goodness so anyway. My mom found out about it. That way And you know then we called her and she's like. Oh my goodness are you okay. I'm like yeah. I'm fine but kristen. She actually she came with the kids And and usually when when redoing you know any of those those kind of scarier ones Like the barge ones the higher risk ones. A lot of times they'll go off and do something else and While i do that jump just so. It's not messing with my focus or anything like that. But a lot of the a lot of the ones that are a little bit more routine features and jumps and stuff. They'll come and join us at the at the shoot and get to see it all awesome. Here's a question man backflip. So how i talk with like a couple of years ago and things like that was talking with joe. Lean and and things like that. How often i mean you've got your compound there but like you know you backflip it. You do it with such ease it just. How often do you actually backflip. I mean. I know it's something where you don't ever really forget how to do it. But it's not like you're back flipping on a weekly basis writer or are you. I mean you just fire off here and there. Is that something like a couple times a year. You pull out the back flip and do it. Yeah i mean that's that's about. Yeah you like literally lie. Let prior to flipping for. Yeah i had that Train flip is what. I had set up so i had that big step up which it's like a super easy easy ramp to flip 'cause it's so steep So like i literally pulled that ramp. Oh set it up. I did a couple of straight ears just to get my speed right just so i didn't overshoot it and then you're going flip it And i my timing was maybe slightly off but within a couple of flips. It's like yeah this is. This is what it is right. You get it down pretty quick but in the old days i used to like really go at it I actually went very slow. Approach to it. I would set up the ramp and flip into the foam pit. And then i would bring it out to the snow and then i would do a little warm up and then i would flip it to snow and now it's like i have my both my many flip ramp and if i have that double flip ramp the big steep ramp setup there. I don't wanna say they're easy to flip like the mini flip. Ramp is is actually kind of technical just because you everything happened so quick off of it. you can really mess up bad But i i kind of practice just standing on it. And then i go in and and flip it so for the most part i you know i would feel pretty confident like if i had to just at any point in the year. Just say okay. Hey you have to go flip this right now i try. I'd be like okay like you could do it. But it's not something you just firing out on a weekly basis when you're on your sled or anything like that anymore. You're just like yeah over it. We'll do them when we have to type of thing. Yeah yeah exactly. It's it's doing that. I mean and they're still fun like i. I had a idea for a while. I thought about like i wanted to see. How many years like a backflip. A snowmobile like into my. You know. I just thought. I wonder if i can do until i was fifty. I wonder if i could. Do you know like that. But i think I gotta get a better setup. That's like very easy on the body because right now the mini flip is like. It's a really hard landing. It's really flap. So i need to have a better landing than that before i sign up for the the annual snowmobile flip into my fifties. So i guess that being said man. It's almost it's almost springtime. Snow starting to melt up there. I guess it is springtime almost summer. You're about ready to pull the boat out of a boat. I would say probably By the mayor. I get it on the lake. Yeah we're i just talked to him in and they said that They said the boats in and they're just they're just getting it prepped. Ready to go. And i ju- were down here like the right now. In my doc. I just put the put the dock in i just got A picture of the act. So i'll get back and get the boat in and hopefully Be able to get on the water for a little bit. But i'm actually. I'm really excited to go. Ride my dirt bike. For whatever reason. I i I wrote a bit last year in the in the fall with my my brother-in-law Joe and it was really fun. Because i'm at the point now on dirt bikes. Where a. I've come to the conclusion that i'm i'm not the best or biker and i don't i don't feel like i have to prove anything to anyone anymore so i just enfold vet class.

My good buddy levi lavallee leave. I spend a bit of law since we had you on air. Last time we actually really caught up. I was actually doing some snowmobiling with you up there in minnesota about a year ago so man. Welcome back buddy. Yeah excited to be back. Yeah well i. I would say i don't know it normally. I know you're pretty busy right. Now you're pretty busy but it's not necessarily doing what you wanna do. You're you're you're working on a driveway man with a glorious stuff. that people don't realize levi lavallee. Always i this kind of reminds me street by tommy thing. And he goes man and goes. I don't ever want to go back to and drywall. You know what it means. I feel like this. This show's you. Hey i still gotta continue to hustle. Because they don't want to actually get a real job right. What's funny is is You know. I think it's it's pretty neat. What my my partner in the team. Glenn he said hey you wanna come down to my place and lake of the ozarks and and you guys can have like a vacation. I said yeah. That sounds like a great idea. So he gets a private justifies down there. And i'm like this is going to be all time trip. We know more than stepped off the plane. And get your work boots on. Let's get to work on that driveway like well. That's not quite the vacation. I thought it was going to be so. We've been working on it here for the last Four days this is our fourth day and we're almost done so i think we might have the rest of the week to To vacation so not quite what we were thinking. Feel good time. The thing i laugh about is messaging with you and your wife and we were getting this all set up and found out. You guys are going to be on vacation. I feel guilty. Because i know guys like you and me like we. We rarely ever get a vacation. Last thing you wanna do is going do like an interview during your vacation but now knowing what you're actually doing i don't feel guilty. I feel like i might be risking you tune extent. You literally are like i. I've been mixing in. Poxy is what my job is been. And i said hey i gotta do this podcast. I gotta do this interview. So i I'll be back after a bit. So i'm finally. I'm getting a little breather. Whatever else out there getting after it all right. I appreciate you taking up my time today. That's funny we should guess we can go back to talking about everything you've been doing. I know obviously let's go back. Let's go back to the beginning of the race season You guys had a pretty pretty damn good year. I know you guys have kind of been transitioning the past couple of years and and had some struggles but man guys were you guys. We're pretty on point. She'll eli yeah. This year went amazing for team. Lavallee you know we had Adam peterson who was Pro-life writer last year blew his knee out. In the first race he missed the entire season and riley best through was i. You know new to the polaris and new tina valley and whatnot so took a little bit for him to get up to speed. And then you know cappellini who's moved our longtime pro- You know he. He was coming off of injury and stuff as well so it was kind of a Building year just a learning year last year and this year polaris they came out with the new fuel injected race sled and it was on point and the boys i mean the writers. They did so good. they just just came out swinging. Adam peterson chemo. Won the first race. after injury and continued on throughout the year just just honest warpath and eventually won the pro-life championship riley got his first win. On the on the players and team lavallee and kyle selene Longtime probe been with us since two thousand thirteen He got his second career win this year so his last one was in two thousand fifteen. It's been a long time coming but man he was riding so good this year and really really quick and really working with the fled and it was awesome to see and then after season you know they did it award award banquet a virtual award banquet and we ended up getting team of the year and and kyle got fan favorite and i mean. It was just a phenomenal season for the team. Yeah that's gotta get you feeling good because i know you guys you guys are always you know one of the favorites and things like that. But you know you've had some struggles the last couple of years. And i know you know for whatever reason but i feel like this season was the one you guys been wanting for awhile. Man sure was it you know. One of the biggest things is the the new players engine that they came out with was just so strong and it really made the difference. 'cause we were getting good whole shots. You know the first first couple of races. We were still learning. What what we do with the engine and and then by mid season things really started clicking. We started getting good whole shots and you know getting a good hole. Shot really really makes it a lot easier on the writers and and it was fun to see and and you know the guys were. They did such a good job on their suspension. Getting everything to work so well so it really was a season that we were looking for. We were hoping for. And until i you know i. I've told people i said seasons like this. One are the reason you go racing because it's just ever having so much fun in everyone was working together so well you know that's those are the memories the things that i'll remember for for the rest of my life. Just how cool this season was you know. I think that's actually a good point you know and you've been around this business for you know for pretty much your entire life but i think a lot of people don't realize that you know to be a top level race team you know even on the you know. Even you know years where you think you're going to have a great year like it's so hard to be one of the top teams and and to be at that level every single year because everybody else continues to elevate their game and you're continued to elevate but for whatever reason sometimes you have a season where things just don't fall your way and things don't work out and there's nothing you did. It's not like the you know another team outspent. You're out prep ju. it's just. There's a lot of luck that goes into racing. And it seems like you know once once things kinda start clicking and you get that momentum going you know what i mean. You guys have a season like you did this year. And that like you said. That's what keeps you going because we've seen you know it's not just in snowmobile racing. It's every other kind of motorsport. I mean some of the best most elite athletes in the world and sometimes just have an off year. And there's no reason for it's just an off year and and like you said. I mean i'm excited for you guys because i feel like that re-energize you guys are even more pump for the two thousand twenty two season when that rolls around you know. Ah absolutely i mean it's so fun when you have a good season like that..

"On bruce springsteen was it was everything to me and i became an obsessive fan and it was right before magic came out so i started to become even more You know like a bigger fan diving. Deep into things right around that time it would have been late. Two thousand six going into two thousand seven. So did you start working backwards on his catalog. I mean how. What was your next paths because you know this. Is it like for me. And i've shared this before right now. Nineteen seventy seven. I buy my first speech. Boy eight track you know. I'm blown away. Because as a high school kid i loved kiss and i loved you know. Am radio and i'd never heard harmonies like the beach. Boys and i'm going to every record store trying to go going to be like. Oh i don't have this album. You know i don't but you have a little bit more. You know when you find bruce so what what was your pass to explore more of his music. I wish. I wish it were that scientific. I'm pretty sure. I just illegally downloaded a lot of bruce springsteen songs off of lime moyer. Nothing wrong with yes and then just started to kind of piece them together from there I remember we had this place that i worked in chicago. We had sirius. Xm and the song prove it. All night came on. And i just remember hearing them being like god. That's bruce springsteen to and so obsessed over that song for a little while and that probably led me into darkness. And i think my dad had just gotten me The hammersmith odeon on contract that they had just released a double cd. So i started to piece everything together from there as well and then and then that's magic came out. So i i feel like i started off with old man springsteen going to and that's for me that's my favorite i. I like the elder statesman of rock Shot you know it's funny because I have the same too. I certainly and i you know repeating myself right but i certainly remember. I bought the river. And i remember hungry heart on the radio and born in usa and tunnel love but by true. True obsession was two thousand and two the rising two thousand one the rising cd and seeing him in concert for the first time took me from you. Know a passionate fan to a obsessed fan and know so I do not have a settlement at attachment to like they talk about seventy eight concerts at. Oh this was the greatness of darkness area and then i'm just loving because you know i love magic. I love wrecking ball. You know. I you know these you know like i'm you know i want prove it all night. Seventy eight intro. No i want girls in their summer clothes. You know right like it ended. Just because i think you just said it perfectly you know the the statesman springsteen was my springsteen and hits where i go through and even though i love them all. There is a sense of affection toward these albums because they were there and it was great. That's interesting do you in this. Maybe you haven't thought about this. But what are the things that are in common. Or what balances your love of the sex pistols. The ramones this this punk energy music and bruce springsteen you know the i know he loved the clash and i know like london calling. He did that..

"I can find in freestyle motocross or anything else in action sports that i can get my hands on to even to the point that i'm near commentating video games of all things so if you wanna see someone commentate pixels doing the very best i can with the jumps t. Imax e fm amax world championship series. On facebook live. But i can't believe that. I've managed to get one of the greatest ever riders. Who's ever strapped on a pair of boots to sit down and have a chat. Not just the bad his career. But what i think is even cooler is his new direction after retirement and he's not even thirty years old. It is levi. Show would not that. He doesn't like doing interviews. But i do know that he doesn't have that much time with all the projects going on so i'm glad he had time to sit down for this one. I've known levi for many many years now having ridden with him like a narrative in which i spoke about with fung on the loss podcast interview and even a couple of the new zealand. Pham jam cam switch was for me. Personally they were the most fun competitions i ever did so oft watching levi progress so fast in front of our eyes. It was only natural that he shocked everyone with that. First red bull x fighters win with these signature. Rubber kids style and then he would go on to completely dominate. The sport of freestyle might across for the next decade. He was one of the big handful of rod as who were at every event and pushing all the time. And if you've listened to some of the other podcasts or you've heard me and other events like the world championships unfortunately for most. If not all riders leave our show would is my personal yardstick in which to measure everybody else by in so much as style. I'm not going to fan boy this too much. But just in my personal opinion. There is no other varada who is as smooth as levi in terms of freestyle tricks. They're of course guys who may go bigger and do nali things. There are more technical rod as maybe but for pure style with the level of tricks in his era levi is number one in my books now didn't focus too much on his writing career in his interview because we've all seen in progress over the years if you don't know too much there is plenty.

"Okay, , welcome to good together Paul. . We're so excited to have you. . I'm really excited to be talking to you all today. This . is a great time. . We've got some exciting exciting product and it's a really. . I don't know it's an interesting time to think about changing the way we've been consuming changing the way we've been designing making, , and so it seems like a nice inflection point for all. . Just sort of. . Pause. . -olutely. . Absolutely I think right now we all are faced with more time than ever before on our hands. . It's giving us a great opportunity to be mindful like you just mentioned. . BSO listeners were super excited to how Paul Dillinger the together podcast Paul is the vice president head of global product innovation in premium collection design, , for Levi, , Strauss and company, , and I love that we're having the chance to talk with Paul for many reasons. . But one reason is because when we think about heritage craft American brands that are known for products that last a long time I. . Think everyone has Levi's pop into their head and I'm not just saying that I think has just been a brand that we've all trusted for years. . So the fact that we've is is taking a step towards circular fashion were super excited at <hes>. . So Paul I wonder if you wanted to give us a really brief intro <hes> of yourself and sort of what you do at Levi's. . Sure. . Thank you for that introduction I. . It's a fancy title and it's but it. . It's easy to say I'm a fashion designer. . That's that was my training to undergraduate and graduate school. . In my MFA in fashion, , design and I designed clothes <hes> but <hes> leave there's a recognition that <hes> beyond just the seasonal cycle you know spring clothes fall clothes in spring shows fall shows <hes> beyond that just a six month normal fashion cadence. . There are some design challenges that take more time. . There are some <hes> opportunities that you you can't. . Really you can't. . Tackle problem resolved delivery in in just two seasons sometimes the real. . Big changes they need a little more time to be cultivated research developed. . And thoughtfully executed and those sorts of projects fall to me. . So rather than designing. . For next fall or next spring I'm thinking about <hes> a systems based approach to changing the design method allergy entirely five years from now or new materials that might actually deliver value ten years from now it's more of a it's a the fashion skillset, , but I'm a Senate set to longer view. . And and which is interesting because we're the company that straddles this company that straddles. . The fashion versus utility space. You . Know Levi's were essentially a tool I for minors to make. . You know up to. . The Goldfields in and and our but. . Our value was predicated on technical innovation, right , it was the adding the copper rivet to a garment that was wearing out in certain spots and we added that rivet and it made it strong in those spots and we patented it, , and then we became like the. . Created. . This whole this category world's biggest purveyor of Denim, , which then slowly changed from being a tool being object of faction. . So at once we're this company that has invented A. . Thing and durable both in the form and also emotionally durable that people love their genes. . Last may become good friends. . We're also part of the fashion cycle and we do seasonal product and we try to stay relevant instead of trend and and and and and resonant with the <hes> with <hes> contemporary consumers, and , so there's a dynamic tension in the Levi's in this sort of struggled under. . It's sort of carefully weaving those together. .

"Initially the sounds like a really funny mix up but it was actually a really sad moment. Levi's brother Lewis had been the one who had died and the paper had to publish a correction the next day. Three years later the Strauss's sister fanny had been very close to leave. I also died and the oldest sibling and founder of the family business. Jonas Strauss died in eighteen. Eighty five like Levi. His siblings had also been really involved in philanthropic work. Yeah we're GONNA talk about his philanthropy in just a moment but all of their Obituaries talk about all of the places that they donated both money and time. All of the causes they supported. It definitely was a family affair in terms of Lake wanting a better community and a better future for the children that would come after. Another devastating loss came in eighteen. Ninety three when Levi's nephew Nathan. Who had been running the New York offices for the firm shot himself in his office bathroom in while it eventually came out that he had lost a good bit of money. It was never discovered exactly how that had happened. There were certainly lots of rumors about how it might have happened. But there is no clear evidence as to actually what had led him to that moment. In one thousand nine hundred Levi Strauss and company printed. Its first catalog. The business seemed to have no limit to its potential. At this point he weathered a Labor strike that took place throughout the city that year. In one thousand nine hundred two he also joined with other community leaders to speak out against making the provision of the eighteen. Ninety two Gerry Act permanent. The GEAR EAC had extended the provisions of the eighteen. Eighty two Chinese exclusion act. And we've talked about the Chinese exclusion act on the show before the telegram that was sent by Strauss and his colleagues to Washington. Dc stated that. Barring legitimate Chinese merchants was an injustice. This pleaded not have the desired effect though the extension of the Geary Act came through. Yeah and there's discussion of just how much this was like an activist moment versus year. Stupid to turn away business. That's going to help our country particularly our community grow But he did speak out against it even though that did not Play out the way they had hoped in September of Nineteen ninety-two Levi. Strauss was diagnosed after feeling a little unwell for a bit with a slight congestion of the liver and it was believed that he was going to recover any did start to feel better and two days after a doctor had visited and given him the diagnosis Levi. Strauss died after eating dinner with his family and then returning to bed. He was interred at the family. Mausoleum at the home of peace cemetery after a funeral at his home and his four surviving nephews inherited the business and his fortune. His nieces each received a significant sum to be given directly to them and not to their spouses or other male relatives for management. That was something that one of his brothers had done as well and he also left money to all of the various charities that he had worked with over the years. So I will tell you and if you've listened to this podcast for any period of time you can understand why that is. I researched this episode. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop because we have so many instances of really interesting seeming people that then in the course of actually digging into their biography. We find out some horrifying thing that they did or were part of. Here's the secret evil. I didn't think I was signing up for with the right. Oh I thought this was like no. They're horrible and while Levi. Strauss was certainly a shrewd businessman. Who did look after the interests of his company? He also seems to have been a genuinely nice and pretty good human being Shirley not faultless but I kept expecting some horrific thing to appear and it didn't get we've got plenty of things that like. We said were problematic. Like being like. Oh no we only employees white people that yeah that that's not great but it also was not a case of like. Let me literally enslaved people in the basement which rates seems like A. That's more often than not the story. We accidentally wind up telling and his prosperity Levi. Strauss held the Jewish ideology of benevolence he donated money to worthy causes in the San Francisco. Community both those run by various iterations of Jewish benevolent associations and non Jewish charities as well. Yeah he actually started donating money almost as soon as he started making money after he moved to California It seemed to have been something that was deeply important to him. In the eighteen sixties he donated to the US Sanitary Commission to help clean up union camps to minimize the rampant disease there. He advocated for and participated in a shutdown of businesses in San Francisco on Election Day on November eighth eighteen sixty four. That was the election that Lincoln one. For what would have been his second term. He was also one of the founders of the Concordia Society which began in January of eighteen sixty five. Which is the place where Jewish leaders and professionals could gather for social and Educational Events Strauss was the club's first vice president that was another one of those institutions that was really forward facing in terms of looking to the future. They also wanted to make sure that Young Jewish professionals could come in and learn from mentors and get a support system to help them succeed and he became increasingly involved in community government and politics over the years. He seemed to think it was his responsibility as a successful person. He was a vocal supporter of the Hawaiian. Reciprocity Treaty of eighteen. Seventy five which removed tariffs on goods traded between the Kingdom of Hawaii and the US and he also advocated for building regulations that would reduce the risk of fire spreading in the increasingly tightly packed city. He had fires himself that impacted his properties and so of course. Those efforts Had benefit to other people but they also benefited his personal business. He also drummed up. Donations for the Garfield Monument Fund Association donated to orphanages and helped set up the Labor Exchange. Which was a group that was intended to help the unemployed men of the city make connections to find temporary and permanent work? You also became heavily involved in the Society for the prevention of Cruelty to children which was incorporated in Eighteen. Seventy six he served in one leadership role or another with the Organization for the rest of his life that was particularly important one to him And as the eighteen ninety s had moved on Strauss had stayed busy even though he was going through a lot of family tragedy at the time he was working with other merchants and civic leaders to actualize infrastructure projects including a railroad to compete with the Southern Pacific. He knew that a city that was appealing to new residents would mean sustained growth for the businesses. There so he was constantly donating both his personal money and on behalf of Levi Strauss and company to the creation of things like parks or the improvement of public spaces and he supported efforts like the pioneer kindergarten society because he knew that educating children was a vital part of making a future for the city he was not only interested in early childhood education though he also donated to the University of California Berkeley so they can keep their library open longer hours and he created a scholarship fund. At that school that Levi Strauss. Scholarship continues to this day. One of Strauss's employees named Henry Richmond later wrote of him quote. Strauss was very quiet. Affable always immaculately dressed. Yeah and he. Apparently Did Not like to be called Mr Strauss. He wanted everybody to just call him. Levi. He seems like a lovely lovely gentleman and I also wanted to include as our final note. Appoint of Trivia related to one of our previous episodes because Levi Strauss was a founding member of the Pacific Coast Auxiliary of the Jewish Publication Society of America and another member of that group was Ferdinand. Foch Lists Farther Alice veto cliffs. It's one of those moments where you just see all the history puzzle pieces starting to Click together foul connected. Yes and Levi. Strauss is so connected in many ways like that to California history because you know he was On all sorts of public works committees and efforts with you know people like Stanford and other other famous people that really formed a lot of the foundation of California's. We know it today. Thank you so much for joining us today. For this classic.

"Who presumably started out his Yaakob and Americanized his name when he got here was also a Jewish immigrant then he had moved to the United States from Russia as a young man he likely I also worked in dry goods as a cutter and a Taylor. Although he had also dabbled in the brewery business in some other enterprises he was also an inventor he had developed a screw based clothing fastener and ironing board could also stretch clothes and folding press and those last two items were granted patents but that fastener was not take had also expanded his tailoring work to make tenths and wagon covers to capitalize on the need for those kinds of goods in mining towns in Nevada where he lived. He started making very sturdy. Long-lasting trousers for Labor's out of duck and Denham duck is like a very densely woven cloth and he eventually on the six suggestion relative started buying his duck yardage from Levi Strauss and company. Yes duck is usually compared to like a very densely woven canvas. Almost IT'S A. It's one of those things that people still make work clothes out of. Sometimes I don't love it. It's a little stiff for my tastes. It's very sturdy. It will last a long time and to please one of his tailoring customers who came in to order work pants for her husband who apparently wore through them at a pretty good clip Davis used rivets to reinforce the pockets. The story goes that the wife came in because she said my husband is worn out all his pants and cannot leave the house. I have to come places order. So she had to go back with a piece of string and Markley his waistline and other measurements. And then bring it back to the shop and she was delighted it appeared. Her husband was delighted. Jacob leader soccer has been around town wearing these pants so it seemed like everything was going great and he included that detail. Those riveted pockets. Unin number of other pairs of pants because people started to see these pants town and asked where they came from and could they also get the same ones and so he started making these pants with duck canvas and riveted pockets for more and more people as the riveted pants pocket became popular with his customers. Decided he should patent them but that was a really expensive process and the story goes that his wife didn't want him to spend money that they didn't have trying to do it so along a payment on an invoice that he's into Levi Strauss and company. He also sent two pairs of pants with the proposition that the company applied for the patent in his name and in return he would give the company half the rights to sell the pants. This is like the most trusting move. I can possibly imagine someone doing I know. Here's this thing I invented. I would like you to help me patent it by the way. It's not padded yet but here it is yet especially having been working on this day in history class and recently recording episodes on people like Filo Farnsworth and Nikola Tesla like. There are so many stories about a big business. That's like GonNa take this patent from you for no money and x Ray In a lecture that I was watching online of Levi. Strauss biographer whose book I used for a lot of this. She was saying to her. This really indicates how trustworthy Levi Strauss was perceived to be by people. That just knew his name like he just had this reputation for being a really honest and good man and so this person completely trusted him with his invention and there it went and Strauss was no fool. He went for the idea really quickly. He wrote up an agreement that gave the company Levi Strauss and company exclusive rights to sell the pants on the west coast and that quote rights outside of the Pacific Coast and territory shall be equally divided between ourselves and Davis Davis agreed to these terms and made it very clear that this was not just about the Rivets. It was also about the cut and construction. He offered to oversee the manufacturer of the pants. Either New York or in San Francisco whichever Strauss preferred in the first patent application filed on behalf of Davis was rejected on the basis that the military had been using rivets in the construction of shoes already and so that just using them on pockets was really not an innovation. Strauss did not accept this. He hired lawyers who specialized in patent law to appeal the case but it was once again rejected in early eighteen. Seventy three Strauss and Davis were preparing another. Go at a patent for these riveted pants. Jacob Davis and his family moved San Francisco in May a revised version of their application was submitted this time with more detail about the distinction between the riveting that they were using on clothes and the way that rivets had been used on shoes just a few weeks later on. May Twentieth Eighteen Seventy Three. The Patent was issued. Strauss paid Davis for the value of his home and store in Reno Nevada and the Davis made their move to San Francisco permanent so that Jacobs could oversee production of this new line of riveted trousers. Strauss later sold this back to Davis for a dollar. Many flipped it. Yeah it was a couple of years later. Bought back his house and shop in Reno and I think It was only like three months. After that that he sold it and at the time they marketed. These new pants as overalls and that were did not have the commutation of BIB overalls that it would have today They were sometimes called waist. Overalls like basically part of that was because you could wear them over other pants But people were them without pants underneath. It is well. The first batches went out in June of eighteen. Seventy three so. That was just a month after the patent was approved at nineteen fifty per dozen pair so Nineteen dollars and fifty cents for a dozen of them. This was a substantial increase over previous market prices for similar garments more than a dollar more than individual purchasers were used to seeing so for a A merchant that was the middleman to have to pay. That much per pant was significant. They really had to like explain. No these are going to last you so long. They are way stronger. Am better than other pants. Strauss opened up a new factory location. So they can start more serious production the following month. A place an ad for first class female sewing machine operators these operators had to bring their own sewing machines that were suitable for heavy work. Yeah he even in the advertisement. They laid out which sewing machine models would be acceptable. And if you didn't have one of those don't apply for the job Soon Levi Strauss and company also started selling riveted duck coats for hunting and by the end of eighteen. Seventy three they had sold an estimated twenty thousand garments. The pants that they were making it. The beginning bore pretty much all the characteristics. We see on Levi's today although they have shifted in style a little bit so they had copper rivets they had that mustard orange thread for stitching in the curvy. Shallow v Stitching on the back pocket the year after Levi and Jacobs riveted overall hit the market Levi was named by the New York Times. As one of San Francisco's millionaires. He had also set up the company which was basically functioning on its own as a separate entity from J Strauss brother in company Co partnership with his brothers so that they would have power of attorney and be able to make decisions about the business in the event that he was not able to. Yeah he kind of realized. This has grown massive and I can't be the only one who makes decisions if something goes awry and that same year Levi Strauss also sued a competitor who started using rivets in the construction of their pants that other manufacturer Abe L. Felt in company pulled all the product that they had made from shelves once that suit was filed but Strauss continued the legal action anyway in order to deter others from infringing on the patent does a couple of years later Levi Strauss and his brothers set up an East Coast Factory under Jacob Davis's supervisions to make riveted goods but in late eighteen. Seventy six another manufacturer. H W king and companies started making riveted goods as well Levi. Strauss has companies numbers drop even as they brought an infringement suit against this other company after a four year legal battle the case was decided in favor of Levi Strauss and company. Yeah that's a long time for that to drag out. But they were like nope. We're going to do it Eventually they did start as their patents did not last forever and they started realizing that they had to do branding so that their genes were completely recognizable from others and people could ask for them by. Look that's how they develop their logo. They kind of knew they couldn't stave off other people using rivets forever So they've got very savvy about how they presented their clothes. There were also two more deaths in the Strauss family in eighteen seventy four. Levi's brother-in-law and senior partner. David Stern died in January and in August one of David's sons who was just eighteen died for reasons that have been lost to the historical record and even as their losses the family also continued to grow through marriage and children and it reached a point where fourteen people were all living in Strauss's house including himself so they moved to a larger home on Leavenworth. Street in the eighteen seventies Chinese immigrants in California were being viewed with increasing hostility as they competed for jobs with white laborers in the same market with fewer and fewer opportunities in eighteen. Seventy six strauss was named an expose that appeared in the daily morning call. The claim was that Strauss was employing. Five hundred Chinese workers a rebuttal appeared in the San Francisco. Chronicle the following day saying that the company employed exactly one Chinese person and that person was in a position that white laborers had quote again and again tried and failed to do that. Position was cutting the dense fabrics. That were used to make these overalls generally Levi Strauss and company like a lot of manufacturers at the time really stressed in their advertising their goods were made by white labor. Yeah this was a whole problematic thing. We're GONNA talk about it a little more in a moment but We've talked before also on the show about the racism that became rampant particularly on the west coast of the United States during this time towards Asian immigrants And he continued to do business with Chinese merchants. He did not seem to have an aversion to them at all or be racist towards them in terms of business partnerships. But he kind of knew that if he was like yes. I hire Chinese leaders that it would tank the company because it would not trust him anymore so he was complicit in this whole system. But that doesn't seem to reflect a like a personal outward racism Rano and in eighteen eighty. He worked on the committee. That arranged the San Francisco Visit President. Rutherford B Hayes. This was kind of funny because it was reported that Mr and Mrs Levi Strauss attended a dinner in the president's honor but leave. I never got married so it is unclear if he had taken a female relative to this event or an acquaintance or if the paper simply got the facts wrong and January of eight hundred eighty one. The San Francisco Bulletin published the details of Levi. Strauss's funeral there's one problem. He was very much alive at this point..

"That is friends without the our best fiends. So Levi quickly established a list of regular clientele and even if he had received shipment of that first load of freight that his brothers had sent there. Were already two other shipments on the way he was doing business. Ostensibly for the company that his brother founded which was j Strauss and brother but he was invoicing clients sort of as a separate business as just Levi Strauss in July eighteen fifty-five Levi sent a shipment of gold. Back to his brother's this was valued at a little over ten thousand dollars at the time. Which is estimated to be close to a quarter of a million dollars in modern currency? Of course it's really difficult to make those estimates. Clearly the California office was doing really well in spite of the fact that there was something of a financial panic going on in San Francisco that year. It didn't seem to impact Strauss by the end of eighteen fifty-five he'd sent more than eighty thousand dollars home in gold. Yeah one of the things. That really made his business. It'll come up over and over that. Even when they are difficulties they still managed to pull through and even do pretty well like people will always need dry goods. They always need clothes and linens and household basics so it was a really smart business to be in the in the first place in eighteen fifty six saw continued expansion of the Strauss enterprise in California Levi. Sister Fogler who had changed her name to fanny when she moved to the United States. Move to San Francisco with her husband. David stearns and their children assist with the growing responsibilities of the business and his brother. Louis also join them. It is possible though unconfirmed that his mother Rebecca made the journey as well and for the first time since moving to the US leave. I actually had a home with an address that was separate from his business. Not living above it or Within it indicating that there was this ongoing trend of prosperity. The firm also changed names that year it went from J Strauss and brother to j Strauss brother and company maybe to acknowledge Levi's contribution but on all records in California it was listed as Levi Strauss Levi sent more than double the amount to New York in eighteen fifty six that he had an eighteen fifty five that amounted to approximately two hundred thousand dollars eventually in the late. Eighteen sixty s Levi changed the name of the California branch to Levi Strauss and company recognizing his family members contributions eighteen fifty six was also the year that Levi Strauss became involved along with his brother in law in the committee of vigilance which was a vigilante group. Made up largely of merchants that formed to combat the city's growing political corruption and related violence while business and politics had largely stayed separate up to that point concerns over how businesses could be impacted by the lawlessness of men in power led to the committee of vigilance nominating and eventually electing many of the city's business leaders into political office. Oh they picked people that they knew from other merchants and put them in office because they thought that was safer and while Strauss did not seem to have any political ambitions of his own he did back the political efforts of the committee. Those committees there were several of them in several places at this time period and in some places their activities were kind of controversial because there was like an extrajudicial violence capacity in this combat of corruption. So it's like there's a whole bigger story there but his involvement was really about electing to city positions and there had actually been a similar committee in San Francisco several years prior to this. That was much more of like a vigilante law force. That thought that they would fill the gap between the crime that was going on and the police were obviously to their minds. Not doing anything about it. So that existed in San Francisco as well although he was not part of that at the time and eighteen fifty seven. The Strauss family experienced a financial loss in September the S. Central America which had picked up passengers and freight in Panama including a large shipment of gold went down in a hurricane off the US coast in the Atlantic. More than four hundred people died at an estimated one point. Five million dollars of gold was lost including seventy six thousand dollars that was on route to j Strauss brother in company from Levi Strauss and company incidentally the wreckage of the Central America was found and much of the treasure recovered in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Although there was a significant legal battle over who should get that gold. The thinking of the Central America set off a financial panic. There was a lot of gold that New York banks had been expecting on that ship. So when it didn't show up that was it was a significant economic disruption and yet as seems to be the pattern of his life Levi Strauss weathered the storm part of this was because his brothers were the ones shipping him goods. So that meant. He didn't have to reassure a supplier of his good credit and be like no. I know I lost some money but I will make it up to you. They're like yeah. We'll just keep it going. So the Strauss family continued business as usual and because other entrepreneurs didn't have the credit or the leverage to do the same thing Levi's business flourished as other shutdown by the end of the year. He was shipping gold to New York once again and he had expanded to have offices in the city that were actually separate from his warehouse. He was also taking shipments of raw materials from suppliers outside the family which he then leveraged in deals that got him discounts on the goods that were made from those raw materials as the country found itself in the grip of the civil war. San Francisco's citizens realized they could eventually be impacted by it. California had entered the Union as a free state as outlined in the compromise of eighteen fifty. But while most of the city was loyal to the Union there were some concerns about some government officials wanting to allied with the confederacy after a pro union rally in the city on. May Eleventh Eighteen Sixty one at the junction of Montgomery market and hosts streets. A resolution was put forth that formed a Union Committee of Thirty Four. This is a committee of respected men. He would uphold the ideals of union. Fill vacant government posts and keep an eye out for treason Levi. Strauss is one of the men named as a member of this group and one of only three Jewish men included. Yeah they were very worried that there were people that were infiltrating California who were pro slavery and that it was gonNA completely cause an upheaval of everything going on in the state and particularly in a large city like San Francisco so they really wanted to try to keep an eye out and prevent such a problem. When the troops that were stationed at the Presidio? Were sent east to fight. It really left the people of San Francisco a little bit uneasy and they were fearful without protection now. Volunteer group known as the Home Guard was founded that consisted of three thousand men and it sort of served as a makeshift military force. The Home Guard and the Union Committee of thirty four actually disbanded though when Leland Stanford was elected California Governor Stanford was a pro union Republican. Who is very well respected successful and powerful so the concerns of some sort of pro confederacy uprising that led to the formation of those two groups were pretty diminished under his leadership. Strauss in his California business continued to do well through all of this and the prosperity of California's merchants helped keep the country afloat through the civil war. Strauss had recognized the value of real estate fairly early on and had invested in a number of properties throughout the city which often sold as a prophet after holding them. For some time Levi Strauss and company also moved into a new space that he purchased in eighteen. Sixty seven was a four story building on Battery Street but clearly showed the company's Success. The company was known for its excellent and speedy service and the ability of its employees to satisfy client needs with even the largest orders. There was a write up where they actually used. The word empowered to describe the Salespeople and clerks at Levi Strauss As being able they were empowered to meet the needs. Agree to deals with clients which is sort of a weird word to be using in the eighteen sixties but there was Unfortunately the late eighteen sixty s also came with family. Loss as Levi's half sister. Mary died in eighteen sixty six and his mother. Rebecca pass three years later after Rebecca's death Levi traveled back to New York and he stayed there for a month presumably to help settle accounts and get her affairs. In order. There is also an embezzlement scandal at Levi. Strauss and company are in October of eighteen. Sixty six when news broke that a bookkeeper had taken five hundred thousand dollars and left the country while the company not wanting to scare away business partners said that there was no money missing. It also made a statement in an advertisement that the man in question. Es Goodman was no longer with the company it was not authorized to conduct business on behalf of Levi Strauss and company. This mix. The messages seemed to below over while Mr Goodman never saw any retribution of the fact that he had taken money from his employer quite a lot of money from his employer. Neither the company NOR LEVI. Strauss personally seems to suffer. Any negative fallout from it. Yeah that's one of those stories were it's like. They completely claimed that it had not happened. So there is no record of it happening but then the fact that they're also like but also if you talk to that guy he doesn't You Know I. It does seem like it's a little bit of a weird combination of things to put out in the press. The company continued explosive.
