Pompeo: Chinese threat may be worse than a 'Cold War 2.0'
"US Secretary of state might compare has bill named middle of Oprah this week you warning that the threat from China good welby worse than that posed by the Soviet Union at the height of the cold. War Mr Pompeo's visits is taking in the Czech Republic Austria, Poland, and Slovenia. This is what he said yesterday. The contrast between free and unfree society has never been clear. Free nations must work together to confront authoritarian threats. Chief among those threats is the Chinese Communist Party and its drive to control people and information at our economies. When a Balkans correspondent guided Loni has been following his journey. Welcome back to the program guy good to have you with us. I wipe out the with Slovenia with no disrespect obviously to the nation itself. I think far enough I mean it's only two million people live here. So it's not exactly huge, but it is a NATO member and there is a family connection of course, Emma and Mr. Pompeo made that point in his opening remarks saying that he brought greetings for Melania trump who is noticeably absent from her homeland. She was born in San Nitsa as Melania canals and she doesn't come back here very often. But Mr Pompey's said she was very envious about him visiting nurse Levin in particular Lake bled where he was doing his news conference but. The rather factors as well. So Slovenia is at at the moment and this is I wouldn't say was out of character, but it's just a matter of where how the political winds blowing here at the moment at the moment in the Prime Minister's office you've got somebody who thinks Mr trump is rather smashing fallow where prime, minister. Yannis Yansha uses twitter almost as enthusiastically as MR trump and spends quite a lot of that time. Enthusiastically, retweeting Mr Trump's tweets. So if you're going to have a friendly audience in Europe at the moment of your representative of the trump administration then Slovenia's an office place to stop off so more than simply passing on greetings from floaters and enjoying a slap up lunch at Lake bled we've just heard there a clip from Secretary of State Pompeo. Making China the real focus of his visit. He really did, and you only speak for about three or four minutes yesterday bend and I think at least two and a half of those minutes were spent really having a good old dig on against China before that. He was speaking about well, he was actually signing a declaration with the Foreign Minister of Slovenia about five G. Security, and this is all part of pushing what the trump administration calls. They're clean network program, and this is an attack on Chinese. Telecom. Companies Chinese tech companies hallway in particular Zeti threatening for the Balkan they've both been very high profile targets of the trump administration and leave you signing up to this five of this clean network program. You'll basically making a commitment, you'll knocking to use any untrustworthy. Vendors in your five G. Systems and the United States is saying it wouldn't have any of these vendors anywhere near any of its embassies went allowed anywhere near any of this State Department. Systems. A lot of come countries, of course are not signing up to this, but Slovenia has and it's got its five G. Network installed by. As of last month, take that way well has replied China Chinese commentators of wounded central and eastern Europe shouldn't be fooled. What would describes Mike pompeo embracing an entirely entirely cold war mindset it is. It is a dangerous thing. Isn't it when you start going into the likes of the Czech, Republic and Poland and Slovenia, and START TALKING ABOUT IDEOLOGICAL THREATS Yes I'm you know he really has gone the full evil empire on? Am You when you talk about Cold War rhetoric either way that he's he's talking really as I mean, as you heard in the clip there, it sounds like something from the nineteen eighties a talks again chief among these threats as the. Chinese. Communist. Party. It's drive to control people and. Information and our economies, and it's it's again talking about freedom loving people and becoming a five G. Clean country as Slovenia has done today as solidifies staff position. In this fight, the tide is turning against the Chinese Communist Party in its efforts to restrict freedom for all of us and I think what's interesting guys of course he's not saying China he's specifically saying. The Chinese Communist, party so he's criticizing the the system of government and control rather than country and the people itself, and that's I suppose the GATT out card But this is the way that the trump administration is going I recommend everyone to have a a good read of the clean network program just to see what they're saying in that and. Quite apart from anything else it does make it clear and not that it's part of the trump administration's drive and it's very interesting phrasing not the United States, not the State Department but the trump administration. So a spot of electioneering perhaps

"So the. You've been the leading voice for social. Justice within NASS car. We can I believe that's true by the way people don't like change unless it benefits then then they like it so. In, addition to getting the League to ban the confederate flag. You raised a couple of weeks ago in a black lives, matter car and you wore, I can't breathe t shirt. On Sunday. You tweeted this latest incident. A will not break me. I will not give in that, nor will I back down if anything. Has This reinforced your commitment to social, change. Absolutely this just shows how much further we have to go as a as a sport, but also as a nation to On a global level as well I mean it's it's a problem. Systematic racism is a is a problem from every aspect of life than. We have to work so hard to. To get that to change, and we know it's not going to change overnight. Who knows the year five ten years, but this isn't gonNA. Stop me from changes in going to be something that just boils over and blows over sweep it under the rug. And forget about you know it's it's. It's a pardon me that I said a couple of weeks ago. That something changed inside of me to be. I guess an activist mother said. Did you ever believe you'll be an active online? No, not really, but you know it just felt something in my heart that I needed to step up up and be a leader in the forefront and ob, I'm. The only black driver Nascar it's easier for me to talk on these matters because I go through. Some, some racist racism throughout my life. I don't have it as hard as people still go through its witness and be a part. And speak on the matters in educate others think that's the biggest thing that that we as a as a sport are messing out. There is educating people listening and learning. Helping people understand what other people are going through. You know we are very often too quick to listen. Don't give enough time to hear each other out, so throughout all of this. It'll still solidify where I stand in stand Bro. So listen. You can always come back to the view anytime I'm not getting I'm so proud of you and I'm proud and NASCAR. I think Nascar for standard by you. Recognizing that a lot of people.

"Top full-time black driver, who successfully pushed the League to ban confederate flags at all events in the wake of mass protests for racial equality. Now on Sunday. A noose was found in bubbas garage at the Talladega superspeedway in Alabama. NOW NASCAR has launched an investigation into what they call a heinous act and BUBBA. Wallace joins us here now to talk about this from his home in concord north. Carolina hello. bubba was welcome to the view. We are proud to have you here. Yes it more than thank you for having me on its honored to be here. I also should point out that this did not stop you from having a career best finish at Talladega yesterday so congratulations, also the governor of Alabama has apologized on behalf of your home. State and the FBI is looking into the incident as well so when you heard about it, what was your reaction to it? And I know your mom SORTA, said Hey united to take this. Tell me what what happened to you. Yeah so I found out. Later on the US on Sunday evening that the Trump had been committed and the garage by the president. President of our seatbelts, a call me and She. The. Way The way he called me in his voice, his character that moment I didn't know what to expect I was like what did I say in an interview? What did I do? What kind of trouble my in. And he he comes motorhome. That's where that's where we're only allowed. Drivers are only allowed to go straits, motorhomes and hang out there because of Covid, nineteen and social this zinc and stuff so. I was in my motor home all day, and so he called and wanted to come over and talk face to face, and and he had told me what had happened and. Tears. was was in. His is flowing from him for the moment. He stepped inside my motor home. To the time that he left, he was so upset. I didn't know what to say or what to do I have never. Ever. Had that happen and not being able to see a directly? I was just kind of thinking like what trying to process at all. And you know. My Dad had told me he's like you gotTa. After after the confederate flag deal, we, he said. I'm proud of you, but I'm also worried about your safety, so you have to be careful, so this just shows just how how much to watch my back. And he he reiterated that on Sunday after I. Call Him so I. Call My mom I. Call. My Dad and we talked about it and he again you know said. GonNa Watch back. YOU GOTTA! Keep your head on the swivel and so that's just kind of how we're about. Obviously I was hurt. I was sad. That we go to those those measures on I wouldn't say shocked because we see the stuff that goes on in the world but just unfortunate that happened to me, and my crew was able to see it and witness added, and it Kinda took our mind racing for a little bit and so I. Guess It was kind of okay that we were put on a rain delay. To go on and let us refocus for Monday. Mr Mr Wallace before the race at holiday yesterday, all of your fellow drivers and their teams rallied around you and they pushed your car. The front of the field racing legend and team owner Richard Petty stood in solidarity with you and former Nascar drivers like the legendary Dale Earnhardt Junior, and even other athletes like Lebron James tweeted their support. What does it mean to you to have so much support in your corner right now? Every time I watched that video I. Get you know emotional and get chills and just to see. You know love compassion, and understanding those were the three words at written on my black lives. Matter Car Martinsville just a week ago. Too extreme sorry and. To See everybody come together and show their support. You know where we are all competitors. We all basically don't like each other when the race starts. We Wanna go out and beat each other That's just what competitors do, but we always show the utmost respect off the racetrack in times of need time supported, and I'm proud to be part of the NASCAR family. Sometimes when you when you don't really see all the support. I guess you don't really focus on that these times kind of a bring back a positive light. Of of of love and passion and solidarity and unity to to unite together and show that. Love is way stronger hate. Out some people are suggesting that this is a hoax or perhaps even stage by NASCAR to garner more support for the removal of the confederate flag, but my understanding is that the only people who have access to the area where the noose was found are the racing teams, and perhaps a few essential workers. So what would you say to those people who are doubting that this even happened or that? It's true. Yeah just like. Steve Phelps said it offends me that people would go to those measures but again. I'm not shocked. People are entitled to their own opinion to make them feel good. Whatever make them helps them sleep at night. But it is still an ongoing investigation with the FBI. I can now say I've talk to the FBI ever thought that would happen? But it's just it's just unfortunate circumstances in A. Terrible time that we're in right now. You're twenty. Twenty will be one year, too for sure forget. Moving forward, but it's it's as simple minded people like that the ones that are afraid of change they they use everything in their power to defend what they signed up for and instead of trying to listen and understand. What's going on and like I said it's still ongoing investigation. We're still trying figure out. How whoever did this crazy act trying to pinpointed on somebody and just go through it all, so it's you know I think it was better for you not to see directly I don't know how our would've reacted. But it's all on their hands now. The FBI sands to two goes through everything and try to figure it out. So the. You've been the leading voice for social. Justice within NASS car. We can I believe that's.

"Territories, but you know who still can't get his story straight about where he stands on testing. Take a look what you do testing to that extent. You're gonNA find more people. You're gonNA find more cases. So I said to. My people slow the testing down, please. They're saying. was that tongue in cheek or own semi St-. Say It all the time I know. Some people thought it was done cheek. Unfair! I don't kid. Let me just tell you. Let me make it clear. We have got the greatest testing program anywhere in the world. Well so now I'm even more confused, but apparently joy. You never thought he was kidding in first place. Now I never did really, but I thought that he gave his enablers some wiggle room to to spin what he said. They said he was joking either way. He's a loser, because if he wasn't joking, then he has to admit that. Several hundred thousand bottom. How many people thousands of people have already died from the virus? So you can't make a joke in that kind of atmosphere. Even as a comedian I would never do that. And if he was joking, then He. I mean if he wasn't he was. then. Then, it's. It's just like you know. What are you joking about? The whole thing doesn't make any sense to me, but the truth of the matter is is always wanted to slow down the testing because the testing. When it's in big numbers, it's accurate. It makes him look bad I believe that's called criminal negligence when you say I'm not going to do testing just like he goes out without a mask and encourages. The curve keeps going up. Because of him I just looked up. Another country are the countries. The curve is going down not here because of him. Right so if he actually did tell his team to slow down testing. Sunny. Is there illegal case to be made? Against Him for negligence I mean. Don't think that there's. Well there's there's no legal precedent for for something like that. Certainly while he's in office, but you know. Sanjay Gupta was on CNN yesterday and Explaining that there really is no correlation between an increase in testing an increase in in cases, but what Sanjay did mention is that it's just such a public health travesty. If this is true, we know that the United States has not met its burden in terms of testing. We're supposed to be testing up to five million people a day and we just. Just have never done that and for the president to admit I don't think he was kidding and he says he wasn't kidding for the President President to admit that he wanted the slow down of testing, so to make himself look better I mean I. Just think it's such a tragedy when you've had a hundred and twenty thousand people dead on his watch. It's just despicable, and it's really despicable that he has Kelly mcenaney. Justifying his use of the Kung flew the term. The Kong flu, which is racist when you have a Kaley Meccan, any just justifying what's coming out of this administration. I've just I'm just deeply saddened at the state of our country, right? And he's right now. Heading to Arizona is on his way, Megan. You guys. Zona. Right now to be on the rise, yeah, literally right now, and he's going to check on a Finnish section of the border wall. Disasters seem like a really smart optic to you. Well there's there's a few things I WANNA hit here. The first one is our former co host, and my all of our good friend Abby, huntsman, her and her family have covert and they were. They had false negatives in the test that they were giving. You can look at her social media. She's made videos and she describes having covert is like having a snake wrapped around your entire body, and you don't know which time it's going to tighten and constrain you and put you in pain and she was. Was Sheltering in place in Utah, and she's been extremely responsible in her family somehow ended up getting it. So this is obviously a virus disease it. We need to continue to be vigilant about the numbers are rising in Arizona I actually spoke with Governor Ducey is team this morning? Because I wanted to get more information, and they are now mandating that you have to wear masks and Maricopa County, which is the county I grew up in which is I, believe one of the largest Arizona Tour Phoenix says. They're doing reopening with social distancing, and all I it's like phase one like it is in other states A lot of young people are now getting it, which is interesting and I don't know if it's because of the protesting or because young people just aren't complying because they feel invincible, or they feel like it's an old person's disease and I. Think as you've said so many times what B it's dangerous to only think of this as a young persons disease. Abby is thirty three. Young people and people of all ages are getting this disease, and you don't know how your body is GonNa React, and even an Abbey's household. She describes it each members of her family. That has it is reacting in different ways. It listen this is this. This disease is crazy. We there's so much. We don't know and I just want to put this out. Because so many people say you know it's my right not to wear a mask well. It's your right not to ask. If you're in your house. It is not your right to take yourself outside, not knowing whether or not you're Ild, and not having a mask and protecting the people out there so. So it is all of our rights to have a good healthy life that we choose to have. We're all trying to figure out what to do. Start making this is not political. Please wear masks. Because you don't know. Have the disease is working? You don't know if you have. You can have a test and you can have false positives. Nobody is absolutely short. Please put on your mask for everybody's sake. We'll be right back. Shot off after incidents of violence and chaos in Seattle, the mayor tells protesters in the police rezone took Pakistan..

"J. Siculo impassable Loni on the floor of the United States Senate from Saturday remember this was just a two hour session on Saturday and is Jordan secular joined us earlier in the broadcast said it was just a preview of the more robust presentation that will be made today but we're we're trying to play as much sound for you as possible so that you will be prepared for when today's procedure start right after we get a fair one PM yeah eastern time I want to play for you now a very important but it's about two minutes long comment from Jay on the floor of the Senate talking about this this much discussed meeting at the White House from you with present use Lynskey and president trump where that meeting was gonna take place why presidents Lynskey wanted it and the fact that president trump wanted it as well and I think for the first time you got an honest description of what those conversations look like you're gonna hear more about it from chairman shift in the others when they when they addressed the media you certainly heard about in the twenty three hours they presented to the United States Senate so I wanted you to hear this from Jay it's bite five about two minutes long Saturday on the floor of the Senate the house managers try to tell you that the importance of the whole discussion and and my colleague Mr Perot talked about this between president the Lynskey and president trump and the bilateral meeting in the oval office of the White House as it an article of impeachment could be based upon a meeting not taking place in the White House but taking place someplace else like the United Nations General Assembly where in fact did take place now doctor field hill was quite clear in saying that a White House meeting would supply the new Ukrainian government with the quote legitimacy it needed especially vis a vis the Russians and that Ukraine's view the White House meeting is a recognition of their legitimacy legitimacy as a sovereign state but here's what they did not play here's what they did not tell you and I'm going to quote from doctor hill's testimony on page one forty five of her transcript these are her words this is what she said under oath it wasn't always a White House meeting per se but definitely a presidentially level meeting you know meeting with Zelinsky in the president I mean it could have taken place in Poland in Warsaw have been you know a proper bilateral in some other context but in other words a White House level presidential meeting that could be found on page one forty five contrary to what mentorship and some of the other managers told you was this meeting that did in fact in car it apart if you end General Assembly on September twenty fifth twenty nineteen those were the words of doctor hill that you did not hear Wes I want to come to you and this this was something that was not laid out in the house managers case they acted like for a maybe a meeting never took place was only about a meeting in the oval office Dr Fiona hill their star witness your chairmanship star witness specifically said in her deposition that this was always about a White House level meeting she even said it could happen in Poland or in Warsaw or a bilateral in some other context Wes a bilateral meeting in some other context that is literally exactly what a meeting between president trump and present is only ski at the United Nations General Assembly would be described as and guess what that meeting took place absolutely you know in the the the number Democrat house managers and their presentations they they was replete with incompleteness they ignored and edited out evidence that that damaged near the credibility of their own arguments and not only that they made much of the fact well it took place at the United Nations but that the president refused to go to Poland and sent vice president pants instead to me was immensely in Poland failing to note your hand that this incomplete information of failing to note that the president trump was supposed to go but there was a massive hurricane in the United States he elected as he should to stay home to take care of emergency matters with the hurricane that was threatening the lives of Americans at no only because of that he did not meet him additionally in Poland all of this kind of information they failed to present to the Senate folks I really thought the president's team did a great job doing a handful of things during this two hour presentation they countered fax or factual admissions as west points out they corrected the record when it was only partially filled by the house managers you know there's always context to these things I thought the president's team did a good job filling in those holes and then also beginning the the the assertive case that they will continue today and build out over the hours ahead of folks just a few minutes left in the broadcast but there is one more sound bite from Jay on the floor of the Senate from Saturday that I wanted to play for you and I think it's important especially given our view of the United States constitution I'm gonna go to professor Hutchison after I play this by a because you really do have to look at words rather than try to a certain motive for ascribe motive to the people who are speaking them this is by twelve J. secular on the floor of the United States Senate this past Saturday and then there was Mr Shipp saying yesterday maybe we can learn a lot more from our Ukrainian ally let me read you what are you cranium ally said presidents Lynskey when asked about these allegations of quid pro quo he said I think you read everything I think you read the text he says we had a good phone call for his words it was normal we spoke about many things I think and you read it that nobody push me they think you can read minds I think you look at the words Harry they think you can read minds I think you look at words I would just say this this the transcript the read out of that call from January twenty fifth we read every single root word of it on air I'm holding the transcript in my hands when you try a case Terry you have to look at evidence words have meetings you don't have to ascribe motives you can just look at the words I think you're correct the Democrats are majoring in one field and one field only that is the field of mind reading end the record contradicts them and so I think Jay's summation was very very good the Democrats claim a corrupt motive but in order for the crop motive to really dig says this call up the corrupt idea has to be communicated to someone and it is clear beyond question that there was no corruption in the transcript and number two it's clear that president so Lynskey felt no pressure so you put those two things to gather and it destroys Adam shows narrative Adam Schiff keep in mind has been looking to impeach this president for at least three years he majored in claiming that there was a collusion narrative supporting connections between Russia and.

"On and on but who cares? You know it is what it is. It is what it is and this is. Once again this is the beauty. And the ugliness of being a podcast there you know I, try to sift through you know the bullshit and find things that I can really sink my teeth into and you know unpacking unsealed and. Make some connections and you know Kinda do in a in in an entertaining kind of way. You know because that's really that's really what it is. You know I did this podcast to inform and entertain, and you know educate a little bit but stuff like this is really disheartening. because. In the words look. A little. Worse a big creek. I got love from my people. Love Me. You know I promote black culture, I love black coacher the black experience is. Bar, none. You know the best thing to me. You know and I'm not putting anybody else down but. That's just how. I will argue with you for straight twenty four hours about that. Will. You know. So when I have. When there's somebody who? Takes a platform like that of a celebrity and says something that's really obtuse. You know a little tight about that my hold on. Oh Hold Up. You're not gonNa tell me they have black men and have a issue with being truthful and relationship truthful and faithful in relationships when. James Evans stuck it out with you know Florida Evans on good times in her fro was never as the never. Never. You know. She wouldn't beauty queen and then he had financed alone coming over every day and he ain't smash her you. You know what I mean. I know he wanted to but he didn't. You know he stuck it out with old. No EDGE OF HAVING FLORIDA EVANS You know because he was a stand up guy. Not GonNa tell me that black men have a problem with being truthful and faithful in relationships when Leicester? Offer to seven. Stuck it out with mayor and he tried to Smash Finance Jackie. Sorry? Sandra. who was living in the same building? You're not gonNa tell me that. You're not going to do. You're not gonNa tell me that black men have an issue with being truthful and faithful in relationships when Carl winslow. Didn't step out on Helen. And smashed her sister who was living in the same house with them. You're not gonNA, you're not gonNa tell me that. You are not going to tell me that. Not GonNa. Tell me that black men have an issue or cannot be truthful and pay for in relationships when Wayne. dwayne Wayne. Didn't step out on Whitley. Smash Freddie or Freddie had phone the entire time she was they're. Not, GonNa tell me that. Of course these people all characters these these we will not real people, but they are representations of some real people. And the reason why these representations meant so much to us because they projected the type of behavior, the type of lifestyle that we wanted to emulate. James Florida. Evans. DID NOT HAVE A. Productive Environment that they live in. Lynch. South side of Chicago you know in the cabrini-green housing projects. In the seventies, shit was bad out there. You know. But. They stuck it out together. Mary Lester from two to seven lived in the Berry farms community in Washington DC. Out The DC. And things would net. You know great there as well, but they stuck it out together. They stuck it out. Carl winslow. was a black cab. That should gotTA BE HARD BY ITSELF He was a black COP raising a family. Okay. Where he had a black son as his oldest child. And I think they weren't in Chicago as well from that mistake. And even had to deal with racism on the force. That was a very real issue a heat in step out there on Helen. They stuck it out together. So. Where is this coming from lining? Miss Lonnie loss love. Where's this coming from? This is coming from the fact that you got a brother. Who did you dirty? And now everybody has to feel your. They have to you have to express that hurt everybody else has to participate and agree with you and that Ms Love. Is the very definition. Projecting you're hurt.

"Let's. Let's. Let's look at his whole thing. Because there once was a time. I'm old enough to remember this. There was a time when. All you would see on TV were these cop shows Hunter Magnum Pi T. J hooker. You know. He will see all these shows like Miami. Vice Okay. where These these men were doing macho things that were being cops they were you know taking down drug dealers, they were you know sex in. Beautiful attractive women they were driving fancy cars dressing nice clothes. Okay there was getting shot at and they were doing some shooting you know back at the perpetrator and. Nobody wants nobody wants popped up and say, Hey. Their behavior is toxic. This must be toxic masculinity because they were falling in line with the status quo that had already been set in place, which is that why guys with guns? Are The Poster boys for Masculinity in America. The poster boy for being might show in everything heterosexual for men. You know. I don't care what kind of man you were. They were the poster boys. They were the models. For Masculinity. So if you were Latino kid if you were a black kid. You need to be modeling yourself after William Shatner or Tom Celik David Hasselhoff somebody you know saying Don Johnson. You know, of course, Philip Michael Thomas was on that show as well but you know. You know the hip black guy that would say some cool shit from time to time in every nine, and then he might get him a little trim. You. Know for the most part for a long time in entertainment. The model for masculinity were white guys period. And I don't recall anybody ever saying that. Hey. What they're doing for the behavior that they're exhibiting. Is Toxic. This is toxic masculinity. Nobody ever said that. Okay. But we don't look at things through a historical Lens. It constricts out view. Okay. We don't get a wider. Picture you know it's kind of like. You had a smaller TV. He was watching the basketball name you really CONC- Michael Jordan on the other end of the court plan defense you know. But when you got bigger TV, you can see the entire court you see Michael Jordan. Scottie Pippen Toni Kukoc folks you can see bill car, right you can see Horace Grant. You can see the whole squad on the floor at the same time, but we are still looking at these issues through very small scope. And it's hurting us. Because supposedly this is twenty twenty and when what is twenty twenty right is is is Vision is great vision but if the great vision can only focus on one damn thing, you might as well be blind. You might as well be blind if you got twenty twenty and you can't focus, you gotta be able to focus. And, focusing on the wrong thing will only make that particular thing grow and expand you're going to magnify. Okay Wherever your attention goals. That's where energy flow. Wherever your attention goes. That's where energy flows wherever you pay attention to. Is it going to get larger? Is going to get. Larger. In it's just how it is. You know. So we're giving all this attention to the issue of. The comments that Lonnie love me. Okay. So. The backlash is already started. She's getting ripped apart on twitter. You know she'll probably come back in and have a rebuttal statement or make an apology. Okay. But once again. You know. She already put those words into the either we noted this is how she feels. You know I've even seen some pictures on the Internet of her some White Guy and he's supposed to be like your boyfriend or whatever. Okay. So. You got cheated on. You got dumped power with so what it happens. There are some things that are directly linked to slavery in some some things that are just not. Just not linked. So for you to make. Dan Loose Connection Miss Love. was a very poor thing to do in front of the entire world. But Hey. If I had the platform, I would probably say some things that a lot of people would disagree with as well. You have to speak your truth now your truth. Your particular exclusive truth. You know and in a roundabout way. I'm sure. Has You. Know maybe. One iota to do slavery as a whole. But if you, WANNA. Make that connection. Hey, by all means. But like I said. You ran into a cat. Who did you dirty? As they tended to. Okay But it is what it is. Some Gaza trash he are. You know. Some guys attract. I'm not GonNa Bash Women. I'M NOT GONNA get into the whole women do this. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa do that I'm not gonNA fall into that trap. But what I'm saying is people people people make some bad decisions and as a result of those bad decisions, other people get hurt. That's it. That's with most of your interactions nowadays. And you can even. Relate that to other things besides relationships. Driving. Assault, cases. You know. Just. Everyday life. People make bad decisions and as a result of those bad decisions sometimes usually. Someone else gets hurt. That ain't because money and power. because. Money and power. Me? A certain someone. assassinate. Another certain someone on the third of this month and as a result of that, there's an impending war by the happen but You. Know. Black, men are not concerned with being truthful. Relationships. That's the bigger. Of course. and. I can go.

"Think. It's Kinda Shitty I really do you know what I mean? I think that she really needs to. You know. Just. Think before she speaks. In that make a blanket statement like that. You know. Scoop. She doesn't need that she doesn't even do that. You know. She did. Troop. She did speak some true. You know and to say that she you know she completely went off the grid. I'm not GONNA do that. She did big some true but. Her tactics. You know hurts her tactics were way way off and of course, those platforms and those Opportunities do not afford anybody to have statistics in front of them. You know books and you know all this Dan are they don't have charts and you know graphics that they can use and stuff like that but it's like come on. Come on you gotta you gotTa do a little better. You GotTa do better. You know. Somebody's coffee again. And I ain't gonNA. Are. Nice looking woman. She's you know she's A. BB W she's very voluptuous. And You know she's a drag that she's an attractive woman you know so. For her to kind of you know jump out the window liked. These statements. Come on man. But Hey you know. Once, again. She's doing. She's doing the dance for. Him. An industry that is controlled by you know, Caucasians? So. This is This is her attempt. Or this is this is her chance to you know. I guess even the playing field a little bit. You know because criticism from our. Caucasian counterparts. We know that there that's going to constantly be they're not going anywhere. Okay, and they can claim ignorance see that's the beauty. Of White Privilege and of being white in America you can. Well I had no idea you know. You can always say. I didn't I didn't know I didn't know you know but. US. You know we don't. We don't get that luxury. You know she doesn't get the luxury of making comments like that, and then coming back and saying, well, you know, I, don't think it was a big deal. You know I didn't know and once again, this is the problem with Aaron dirty out in public. Aaron our dirty laundry out in public. You know. Do you remember growing up. And having your mother or your grandmother your on t tell you. Hey. What happens in this house stays in his house because everybody in the streets everybody in the neighborhood, they don't need to know your business. You know but you know we live in a different time. Now we live in a much different time. Everybody is into everybody's business and they have an opinion about it. You know you just you're not going to be stop people from having opinion about. Shit that don't even concern though. You know. So it's a double list war. It cuts both ways and it really really sucks. Because the things that we should be concerned about the things that we should be concerned with. We're not. Okay and they know this. Laughed, episode spoke about that Pyramid, of Control I spoke about that period of power and you know Lonnie love she she is a puppet for one of the layers of that pyramid. She's a puppet for for media. That's what the real is. A form of media is an extension of the media machine is a tentacle. On that monster, okay that Meteo Monster you know with tentacles that go in all kinds of directions. She's in there. She's in there. This is what she does for a living. On that show. You know. Because I can't tell you. Even though she's a comedian. I can't repeat to you one lana loves. I. That say she's now funny but I know her. From being on the real. You know and isn't it ironic? The name the showed the real really. What's so real about it? You know what? So real about it? Already to already do is talk about. Celebrity guys of this data at third and it's like. That's no real. The the majority of Americans that celebrities that's a very smart people. You know, but we make them larger than life. We give them these platforms we give them These grandiose stages and we treat them like Superhero. We really do you know When there's a teacher in a public school in Detroit data is working with students who you know. Probably coming to school hungry. Came really you need.

"That's not the majority of us. Now. True be told and the truth should always be told there are some guys some brothers out here they trash. They trash she you know what I'm saying that's that's kind of what it is. Any chance that they can get to hurt a woman they're going to do. Because of whatever? Reasons, but you can't nail it down to you know man black man. They really. Don't know how to have true faithful relationships answer related to slavery. No Lonnie you just. You can't do that. Now, I can see the very loose correlation I can see the very loose connection. But to completely disregard all of the factors. That's a big. No no, that's a big. No No. You know. You would think that somebody you know with. Somebody would that kind of platform who's been afforded that type of opportunity would know a little bit better but see once again, we have to look at the we have to look at the setup you know what I mean don't just look at the knockout blow look at the Footwork Look The jab liquid, the placement of the punch you know what I'm saying she's on a panel with other quote unquote women of Color. You know. Thing one is Latino when his as in you know so. There representing A. MOTOWN. Dynamic. Okay. So you know the poor lowly. Sister you know is there for way she? She's there for the comic relief she's you know Lonnie love a comedian. You know. So she's witty. She's snappy. She's funny. You know what I mean so. When she made the statements you know now this is not this is no longer funny. This is no longer being funny. This is her being you know. The Voice of Truth Voice, of reason Olis' listen to the black woman because you know. She has to be so many things. So what she's saying is going to hit a little bit different same thing with Whoopi Goldberg on that show with those older you know white women. Same thing she's usually saying the smart snappy. Comedic stuff but every now and then she spits a little vitriol. You know they all looking at her like. You know what I mean right there. So you know overwhelmed. In those moments and I think this was one of those moments for Lonnie. A man seals and she's you know being like her hype. Her high woman in the background. You know. And I'm not and this is not to say. that. You know she didn't. She didn't make a good point. Okay. This is not to say that I'm not saying that she didn't make a good point but. When you make it so absolute. Would you make it so Direct You know. You're almost is if you're excluding everything else. You know I mean Amanda d attractive. Jumping there and say you know something about welfare reform and You know. Set the sixties and seventies you know and how different things played into the hand of the black family dynamic be broken apart dust leading men being a little. Way As far as their dealings with their families women but. She completely you know. took the reins back from Amanda. When she tried to you know she tried to take reins and she you know she fodder and she got him back and she said, well. No started talking about Kevin Hart his cheating. Joe Button some light, and I'm like. Once. Again. You know. You're you're making some very bad. You're using some bad examples either not your average everyday people. Okay. Kevin Kevin Hart's life much different from mine I notice hard to believe. Because from the sound of my voice, you would think that I'm living in the lap of luxury. You really would. You would think that I'm having a great time of life. I took my wife and my family to Italy a few weeks ago you know wrote a hot air balloon you know in all this fantastic stuff but that's just not the case you know the average. Black Person America's is not living the life of Kevin Hart not even the life of a job bud. Okay. So for her to use these guys examples, I,.

"Fairly maybe he verbally abuse I'm not. I'm not sure what the details are and I'm not. You know speculating I'm just saying Iran to somebody. who wasn't a person for? You know there were some. -bility issues. Okay and I think when this happens. WOMEN WHO decided to say, well, you know black man ain't shit. As light. Okay. All right. Got Hurt by let's say three guys. Now all of a sudden. The entire. You know droves. The entire butch the entire crop. Black Man. Ain't you got a problem with that. I really do because once again we're neglecting and we're negating the fact that we live within a system. That is already been put in place. There was not conducive to what I. Traditional ancestoral traditions were okay. Now. There's been arguments back and forth there been discussions about polygamy as far as Africans are concerned, you know Dating. Back to the days of you know came for Egypt and whatnot and whatnot? Nubia Kush Via You know west African traditions and whatnot. But. I'm not going to go there right now. Okay. Because we know that we should know that polygamy is cultural. You know and a lot of times over. There's well, there were a lot of arranged marriages but they married for different reasons. These were entire families there were coming together. Okay. One family might say, Hey, you know we have an acre of land. That, you have a multitude of Goat's. Wouldn't it be wise for us to get together your goats in grays off the land we can eat some of those goats. Everybody's happy full you getting along your daughter can marry my son and boom. We got one big. Happy. Family village. But over here, you know things were a little different. You know things didn't work out that way. Do you know families were broken. You know there was a lot of illegitimate kids out there. You know whatever I. Wouldn't the presidents? Thomas Jefferson you know had a a slave. By the name of Sally Hymning you know what I mean so. You know slavery was a multi layered. System, it was. It was a lot of things going on that damaged be no the family fabric of black folks in America. You know. So to nail it down. Completely. The idea that money and power does not mean that you can do whatever you want to do. To Black Man, just not knowing how to be faithful. In relationships. I. Think it's total bullshit I really do. You know I think she really dropped the ball and. This is another fine example of. Business. Our in house business being put out into the streets. You know she's she's taking her platform. She's taken her opportunity to get some views some likes you know whatever caused a little static. You know put all of that out onto the streets. And stuff like this ways on the psyche of people you know because we have a very. Rich. A very authentic. Colts a rule. You. Know. Experience that we should be, we should be celebrating. Okay we should be celebrating everything that we are. Everything that we've done. You know the achievements of our ancestors, the achievements that were making now. All of this should be celebrated. Right now this that be the focus this should. This should not lord over the top of everything you know that we've done as a community they should. You. Know you've made some bad decisions based on whatever you know. And it is what it is. This is. Why you just can't. Say What you want when you want. You know every idea that I've had. Said them verbally. I'd probably be dead man right now. You know what I mean. I wouldn't have made it this far life. Really you know. You just can't. I don't think that's a wise idea. You know why have a camera in front of me? Have Thousands of people listening viewing right now. So guess what I'm going say this. This is that. You know the the comment that Cayenne made about George Bush during hurricane. Katrina. That's different. That's that needed to be said somebody needs to say that. You know so. This is not bad. You know like I said this is. An opportunity for her? To keep her personal feelings about. The hurt that she has gotten in relationships out of the public view. Okay now, if you WanNa talk about the black man and the black woman as far as the family dynamic concern on a bigger platform like the real great do that. But don't chop brothers Bam simply because you've been hurt by somebody with some money muscle mighty with some power. Okay because.

"All right. Well. Money love is basically saying that Black man dogs. Keno in that, we really don't have an idea Know. How faithful in relationships? Okay. She she prefaces the comments by saying you know. Well. I don't speak for the black community wellness love. Let's say this. when you? Begin. A. tarry. The way you you know beginning by prefacing. You're following statements with. I don't speak for the black community. By default. You automatically speak for the entire black community you know. It is what it is. You know what I mean and you have. That kind of platform. Okay. You have that kind of platform and you begin a statement like that. I'm sorry you already in the mix, you already become the mouthpiece for the entire black community by default whether you intend to do. You know it just it is what it is. You know what I mean you've gotta deal with it. Now she said that. I don't think a lot of black men really know how to have true faith relationships and then she goes on to say they think that because they have money because they have power that they can treat women any kind of way, and that is something that we need to work on period. Okay. This is the problem. You know this is the problem. One of the many problems that we have with the blackmail black female dynamic. Okay. But. You know I was taught to be a very good listener. Not me growing up down south. We have these colorful colorful colloquialisms about damn near everything you know and your grandmother. Uncle Auntie somebody has probably told you if you from the south that you need to. Shut up and listen more ask the reason why you have to ears and one mouth. Now. Me Mice Mart asked again hearing when I was a kid you know used to be like well, I can't eat through my ears ain't that the purpose of. You know of course. I. Never said this out loud because I probably would have got slapped into next week you know so. Chill, just thinking in that speaking anyway. She says money and power does not mean that you can just do whatever you want to do. That is a very peculiar statement because in the system of. Patriarchy. Imperialism colonization where white powerful men. Exuded power and control. These are some of the attributes dead they portrayed. They exhibited those attributes and since we are closely connected to that community. What do you think is going to happen if I have a cold? In the room with people who have code constantly and I'm. Coughing. and. Sneezing. Touching Shit. Without putting hand sanitizer on a washing my hands. Okay. Eventually, I'm going to. Infect, those are the people in that room with my germs bacteria. And this is what has happened to our community. I think. that. Being in contact with people who exhibit some of these behaviors that we test and that we hate we became just like them. We became carbon copies of them. Now I know this is stretch for a lot of people here. Okay. But the truth is the truth. Now you have two types of truth you know. This is what I've learned. You have an absolute truth and you have a relative truth now an absolute truth. Is GonNa work all around the board all across the world. It doesn't matter. The circumstance is just GonNa work. If you throw something is usually gonna come back now that's an absolute truth. Okay. Now a relative truth. Is. Fill up a balloon with helium. And I let it go usually things that. Come back down but at balloon is obviously not going to come back down. Right away. Until you get popped or the helium runs out. Okay. So that whole thing about something being thrown up and coming right back now. Does not. Work in that instance which makes that relative shoes if you can understand hope I explained it correctly but. She goes on to you know say, well, it's is because Now. We are still dealing with the point of slavery and we are the descendants of slavery. Okay Here she is again. Making A. Very General. You know point. Okay and she's brushing with. A. Very. Large Brush. He's taking some broad strokes. World she's damages throwing paint on the canvas. Okay and this is the issue. This is the issue because. You have women who have these platforms. Point. They make it a point. To. Vocally, bash black men. You know as if this is somehow going to help the situation now. Miss. Lonnie love is seems to me. That you've been hurt. And he wasn't hurt by earl the ups guy it seems like you would hurt by somebody in Hollywood because you said money power does not mean that you can just do whatever you want to do. There's not a lot of brothers out here. You know. WHO HAVE MONEY AND POWER You know who just dog and women you know by the hundreds. You know that's just not happening. That is very unrealistic is natural. You know. So it sounds to me like, Ms Lonnie love or should we call her Lonnie loss? Love you know what I mean? Has Been Hurt by a brother in Hollywood who did wrong now? Could it be that you? Just made she a bad decision. As we do. This part of human. Existence is part of our characteristics. As humans we make bad decisions sometimes. I. Think. That's what happened. You ran into a guy. You feel form your kicked four little while things didn't work out maybe he cheated maybe he tweeted juwan.

House impeachment report coming ahead of landmark hearing
"Members of the house intelligence committee or getting a chance to review the report before and sent to the Judiciary Committee for Wednesday's landmark hearing White House counsel Pat simple Loni who calls the inquiry baseless and highly partisan has declined an invitation for the president's counsel to appear at the hearing Wednesday's hearing is expected to convene legal experts whose testimony along with the report from the intelligence committee could lay the groundwork for a possible articles of impeachment which the Judiciary Committee is expected to draw up soon my camp in Washington
The latest on the Trump impeachment inquiry
"We start with Donald Trump's impeachment crisis a stampede of damning facts gathered by the day I anti legal defense that appears increasingly erratic today trump was pressed on his stonewalling of Congress and his refusal to comply with those subpoenas in fact he suggested that probably ends up being a big Supreme Court case all right so at this point trump strategy it's pretty clear obstruct deflect confused and if all else fails hope the Supreme Court to which he appointed to justice of which he appointed come and save him even as new facts emerged today the full memo from the first whistle blower released with new details about the call and the New York Times pointing out with details about what went down inside the State Department as frustrations grew over trump blocking military aid for Ukraine now against that drumbeat trump supporters are pushing increasingly bizarre narratives one trump ally and former advisor appeared on a Fox News panel with Rudy Giuliani where he referred to Democrats probe as a regicide which if you don't know like I didn't know earlier today is actually the murder of a king. What you're seeing is regicide this is regicide a by another name fake impeachment I refused the call whistle blowers these two nonentities are suicide bombers that the Democrats have unleashed all right so you heard that regicide suicide bombers that is the language now coming from trump's camp remarkable contrast from how -servative used to talk about impeachment today a moment resurfacing from the congressman Mike Pence speaking in two thousand and eight about what the standard should be for impeaching a president this business of high crimes and misdemeanors goes to the question of of whether or not the person serving as president of the United States put their own interests their personal interests head of public service that's the vice president Mike Pence when he was a congressman back in the day Matt Miller chief DOJ spokesman during the Obama administration is with US Jason Johnson politics editor for the root dot com is also with us and the daily Beast Betsy would drifts one is as well great to have all of you with us let's lots to break down here Matt let me begin with you what do you make today of the president subtly invoking the Supreme Court and that this battle is likely to end up there you know I think they'd love for it to end up the Supreme Court because that means we wouldn't have any decision on whether the documents they're obstructing congressman tainting had to be turned over until sometime next year maybe even past the two thousand twenty election that's been their strategy all along not just with this investigation but with the previous investigations house launched deny the House they're entitled to make them go to court and drag it out because there's a lengthy appeals process. I think this one is different in that the house the House obviously would like to get the documents that they've subpoenaed but they're not they would like to get witness testimony but they're not gonNA wait for the administration to turn them over and they're not gonNA wait for the end of court battles they already have a whistle blower who came forward and supply them a lot of information I think there are you know they got one witness Kurt Volker who was willing to quit rather than stay inside the administration it'd be prohibited from testifying and I suspect what they'll do is push forward given that they already have enough evidence that the president pressured the Ukrainian government to to launch an investigation they already have evidence of quid pro quo and those Kurt Volker texts that were released they're obviously things that they would like to get their hands on for example more evidence about the withholding funds from Ukraine but I don't think they're gonNA wait for the courts they're going to go order because they have enough evidence and they'll probably get more as more witnesses come forward at despite the White House trying to block them so to that point Jason the White House as we mentioned refusing to cooperate with these demands realistically besides going the path of the courts is and that was just spelling out what options do the Democrats have beyond subpoenas anything well they're option is to just have a vote right they don't require this information and I'll be honest we can take the headline White House stymies Congress house refuses to hand over information we could run that same headline every three months since this administration began so it's I don't think for once the Democrats are not shocked and amazed at the eight houses lying or not providing information they can have this vote whenever they want here's the other key part about this every piece of information that they've asked for that this administration refuses to come forward with can be part of a complaint about obstruction of justice into an investigation of inappropriate behavior that the president has already admitted to so that is their option to take everything Donald Trump is doing now and make that a part of their case in a stronger case that for once according to the polls not only are people in favor of the impeachment inquiry but we have now moved we're Americans are actually recent poll so Americans are actually in favor of Donald Trump being removed from office in a vote and that's something that works Democrats favor and interesting and all of this today former Congressman Trey goudy now's going to serve as outside counsel for the trump team and it's amazing because if you go back to two thousand twelve here he is actually announcing Democrats for not cooperating with Congressional Oversight Watch this clip the notion that you can withhold mation documents from Congress no matter whether you're the party in power or not empower is wrong respect for the rule of law must mean something irrespective of the vicissitudes of political cycles so that means that you just on your screen there who made that huge appeal about nobody withhold power from Congress or excuse me withhold information from Congress's power to have oversight is now going to defend and justify the president withholding being information from Congress are those words betsy going to come back and haunt trey goudy no question and these political cycles have early gone through a heck of assist Tude as Gowdy my put it the fact that Republicans spent eight years of the Obama Administration laying out in the most asta robust and detailed way possible arguments that the executive branch has to comply with subpoenas an oversight requests from the from the legislative branch in something that's going to create challenges for all of them that said the White House is legal strategy faces a really complex difficulty because there's tension within the White House regarding how White House counsel Pat Simple Loni is approaching this particular issue simple only is treating it perhaps more as a legal fight than a political fight it seems the White House counsel's office people to an extent are still in molar mode thinking in terms of winning court fights rather than thing this has primarily a political undertaking we know that impeachment at its core is a political tool and for the most part of the president is outside allies view the biggest threat to him as a as impacting vote but simple owning is approaching it more from the legal side and that's generated a little bit of friction and the interesting thing again in this betsy that you got the GOP inviting Giuliani to testify Lindsey Graham Watson come up to the hill to talk about Ukraine Corruption Watch his latest appearance on Fox News I just drove through okay they required witnesses to face the witch and some witches were acquitted it's ridiculous the only place I can think of what we had trials like this is in the Soviet Union the remember the president used to call this a witch hunt this is now more than a witch hunt the which is headed better in other words they had more rights the witches had better what do you make of that I mean what's the risk your betsy for the gop to kind of have this narrative floating out there between the regicide the is it is not a king yet his defenders making reference to him being king others are calling this a coup now you got mayor Guiliani or former mayor Droopy Giuliani talking about which is for the duration of his time serving as president's personal outside counsel Giuliani over and over and over has said things publicly that have undermined the legal arguments he's trying to make in defense of the president who can forget the moment when he made the bombs dell admission about the president paying off porn star Stormy Daniels in the final weeks of the presidential campaign on Sean Hannity's Fox News Show Giuliani creates the most problems for his client when he's in a setting that he feels to be friendly and no one on Capitol Hill is going to make Giuliani feel more laxed than Lindsey Graham the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee who is incredibly close with trump who hangs out with him engulfs with all the time Giuliani sitting down in grams a committee room is perhaps the most perilous moment of the impeachment process for trump? Hey today the California Congressman Roque Hana telling Holly Jackson the Democrats need to move forward with the vote listen to this here's the reality we can't count on the White House we can't count on the course they want to delay this we need to move forward we need to look at what evidence we have make the best effort make the case and have a vote on the articles of impeachment what's the what's the play here you think Matt should they go ahead and actually hold hold a vote have a vote on impeachment knowing that the White House is going to stall this and if as you were saying this could delay in
A Deep Dive Into Kelp Killers
"This week. I traveled to California's Mendocino county to scuba dive with local. Oh abalone fishermen Jank Lincoln's and Mike Escrow from the California Ocean Protection Council to get a firsthand look the impact that warmer waters lessee the stars and a massive increase in Purple Sia jains a having on everything from Kelp to abalone. I meet up with Mike Escrow. Who's is the marine ecosystems program manager the Ocean Protection Council Luckily for me. Mike's also a dive Mazda a former C. ground fellow and and hold a master's degree from cal State Monterey Bay in Marine protected areas might where are right now. We're here at Pebble beach on the North Coast and Sonoma's county and we're going to go out and try to see some abalone but probably gonNA see a lot of very much kelp unfortunately okay so in front of us. We have this yellow bag and it's got a lot of equipment that quite remember what I'm GonNa do is so well we got right. Here is as we have your scuba tanks so all your errors in here we got your. CD that stands for buoyancy compensation device and so that's going to help you adjust buoyancy underwater as you get a little deeper grier. GonNa add some areas. You get a little shallower. You're gonNA that Samaria out. We got regulator here which we're going to hook up to the tank so that you can breathe underwater. That's important all your rubber. All your neoprene so so that's GonNa keep you nice and toasty in that water which is probably about between fifty and fifty five degrees right now so you'll be glad you have that wetsuit in that best and it sounds like you know what you're doing which which has got because I'm glad I'm here. I hope I know what I'm doing. I've been now instructor for a few years now. So what do we do next should be putting your B. C. D. on your tank so I'm going to show you how you do that. This big strap goes around. How much do we have in this tank so this is this is a steel eighty so so you got eighty cubic feet of air in here dependent on your air consumption. That's probably anywhere between thirty five fifty five minutes air but we'll be checking in judge others air supply as we go through the coal now go ahead and turn it on you can hear it pressure as and we'll test it so most important thing second-stage's. That's purge valves. If you ever get any water you can just press that right. They'RE GONNA go ahead and take a breath. Make sure it's working compressed Air Nice. This is your alternate second-stage right here so that that's just the backup so take breath. This make sure it's working right. I love that first breath of pressure as their morning warning. This is an important piece right here. Here's your console all the data. This is all the data exactly this and piece of data right there. This is how much air you have in your tank and then he got a compass sounds. Jack's going to be doing most of our navigation today but if you want I want you can play around with the compass a little bit and help you navigate under water. We're not going down deep enough or stand down long enough to worry about kind of decompression but it's going to have so that's it. I feel good all right. I feel like I know what I'm doing now. So do we get changed now. I think it's GONNA be easiest to get changed now. Okay so we got booties. They probably go on last well. Maybe the hat goes on last-second. Say here's your suit so this is about seven or eight millimeter state is gonNA keep yeah yeah okay so go ahead and get that on once. You're all suited up. I'm going to do the same okay regret pefect before I go ensued up. I asked Jiang Lincoln's and local resident who's led the campaign to bring attention to abalone collapse and who will be leading today's dive to explain the device is now calibrating okay so I work with reef check which is a volunteer data collecting organization in California and I collect abalone Loni data for them. I measure the sizes of Abalone what I'm showing you. Here are some special calipers designed by Josh Russo who is also also a reef check diver specifically for measuring Abalone so that you can do it quickly underwater and it uses a plastic paper deeper and punches so you punch the paper on this zero location then as you measure abalone you punch and then when you're finished you can take the little piece of plastic paper out and measure all the size of the abalone is very fast very efficient and we can get up to one hundred fifty punches and one tank of air which is about half of what you need and a site to build evaluated super low tech yeah the little holes there yeah so from the histogram of size you can determine the size at maturity and you can determine the spawning potential ratio which is very important important in an abalone fishery okay so now for the moment truth. I have to actually get to freezing border. Okay this moment. I'm actually pretty nervous. I remember the last time I went scuba diving looking at the world fifty feet above my head and realizing that there was actually no way that I could make it out without at and unlike like the Caribbean and the border here murky and freezing okay now. I'm working with from the beach into the ocean. Okay I just was attempting to go down to the ocean floor but it's taking me a while to sort out the the right buoyancy level for this suit and God luckily I had gloves on because we were literally crawling along the ocean floor with our hands and the Purple Patch as far as I can see which admittedly was only about five feet but they I mean they were everywhere we stay down for about twenty minutes being moved around by very strong tidal surges and a lot of the time I talked just completely claustrophobic and directionless took a lot of effort to keep president and not give into fear it also took a while for my Easter just to the pressure which at first was just the pain was so intense and just crazy to painful bear then like magic. It disappeared getting out of the water. I'm filled with just so many emotions excitement to be exiting a very foreign weld Tara at the C. Hitch an infestation gratitude for Mike keeping me safe and the complete Adrenalin high just from being on this adventure then unfortunately we just starting to cough up some blood which I find out later was normal but at the time was just shocking okay mic that that was more of adventure than house quite intense coming in the water. Thank you for being such a good guide lead. Yeah you got it man. Absolutely as a challenging day we had limited visibility at say probably no more than five feet at any given time so pretty green down there and a lot of a lot of water movement so we were. We were blown back and forth pretty pretty good but with us fun it was. I just thought I was I mean I know I am cramp but like I just suddenly be floating floating back and I'm like Mike so when you see where we came out of the warden and you're like there's a lot of said made me feel a teeny bit. That's definitely the surgeon. I've experienced but I'm not a north coast either. I'm a I'm a Monterey diver so it gets it gets way more narrowly up here. So I mean to me is far as the I could see that were purple see the actions I mean it was he couldn't see that but as far as you could see they were everywhere yeah. There were a lot of them down. There and I think the craziest thing for me was just seeing how how how much they'd grazed. I mean they'd you know urgency grazers. They eat plants. They eat algae and they'd grazed everything down to bare rock. So's is pretty much urgency. As far as the I could see I mean I've never heard of them. Described as grazes yeah that's a technical term yeah but they're there and so the sea stars used to eat them mm-hmm and then they will wiped out. Yes exactly so so what happened is the sea stars are one of the major urging predators specially a couple of big species so sunflower stars which are picnic. Odia and giant giant spine stars which are species of highs astor. Those guys got hit really hard by sea star. Wasting disease started in twenty thirteen thirteen twenty fourteen really wipe those guys out and so without those natural predators to keep him in check. The purple urging just exploded so quickly though I mean like the timeframe Yo Tokiwa Matt is just kind of like often I think about climate changes slowly moving in like this has happened quick. Yeah I mean this is this is pretty much instantaneous. Ania on a on an ecological scale which is really

Renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma praises youth commitment to climate action
"This is Deanne pen with UN news young people have been leading the push for action to address climate change the theme for this year's celebration of the International Day of peace. The twenty first of September among their biggest admirers is the world renowned cellist Yo-yo Ma who was at U N headquarters on Friday for the annual ceremony Loni to commemorate the day as a UN ambassador for Peace Mr Ma Inspires young people to support the organization's efforts to address climate change and other pressing issues such as hunger and HIV and AIDS. Li Ling Long asked Mr Ma about his message for the nearly two million members of what he he affectionately calls Gen Z. The biggest generation of young people in the planet's history this year's National Day of peace is focused focused on what we can do to successfully tackle climate change and I just came from a youth group talking with Young People Gen Z. and they are so ready to act and one of the things that I love about Jesse's I think they're they're very passionate and they're absolutely committed to thinking about the health of the planet and and their questions had a lot to do with how to deal with let's say corporate entities and how to work better together to bring all the different groups together because you don't want to work at cross purposes and so I think one of the issues that we talked about this is really to keep communicating take to never stop talking not just with one another but with others to actually constantly learn and in what way AK- music and the culture promote peace. I think music is a convener of people and I think what music communicates is both through the heart and the mind but possibly more through the heart in that addresses a lot of things that happened in the subconscious like memory like things that mean something but that are not immediately present in your mind so so it actually creates an imagination from which you can go back to your normal self but with a different perspective. I think culture is is something that we've invented throughout human history everything we've discovered and invented that that actually helped us to survive and to thrive starting with fire to agriculture obviously arts and sciences but even countries are invented. Supposedly all of that is to serve humanity. I think we sometimes forget that last little bit that you know Oh. I'm a scientist. This is what I do. Actually yes you do that because you're here to serve and for culture people culture secular discover more knowledge for what purpose so that we can better survive and looking at some of the conflicts going on around the world causing enormous sufferings. What is your vision about the ending of all those conflicts will. I think I look at all the stakeholders in determining our evolution or the direction that humanity is going to take over the next. Let's let's say you know seventy eight years at I think of my grandson who's two and a half who's going to be eighty two years old when the twenty second century arrives and I'm thinking well if he survives that long or if the world survives at long it seems the stakeholders in this human experiment is us. It's that simple I mean. It's not a government. It's not even the United Nations but it's governments and United Nations and corporations and schools and teachers and parents and and in fact it takes all of us to be mutually responsible to create a home on our planet that sustainable so hence we have the twenty thirty. SDG's St Jeez the sustainable development goals that says okay the to the best of our knowledge. This is what we need to do and that's not a instruction auction sheet for people to follow but it's more like to say okay. I happen to really care about this part of it and I'm going into my piece. You you know so it's finding something deepened yourself to actually serve which gives you joy and purpose in living living right and if seven point three billion people do that. We actually have a pretty good chance in fixing things but if one billion people do do it that's not enough so I don't blame the corporations I think we all have to do it and that's the only way that we can solve all of it and that means we have to find probably at least seven billion ways of doing it because individuals think and solve problems differently and occasionally they come together and do something together because they feel that's the right thing to do and I think we need to have that kind of network in order to make that

How Canadas Anti-Abortion Movement Recruits Young People
"There are lots of myths, and lies and assumptions at their regarding abortions, especially these days, especially in the United States, where things are not going great right now for those who believe and a woman's right to choose what she does with her own body. The dominoes keep falling in the Bush to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Ohio governor signing today would critics condemn as the most restrictive abortion law in the country today. Missouri became the latest state to pass one of the order now becomes the third state since March to sign your loan, thirteen other states have introduced or advanced similar legislation to Alabama the lead. Est battleground in the newly energized abortion. But there is one myth in particular, that we need to talk about. And it's not about the medical procedure or who gets them or when or why it's about the people who oppose access to abortion. And this myth concerns, Canadians to it's very easy to look at the old white faces of the men in power in America who are imposing restrictive state laws and viewed them as the face of the anti-abortion movement. And that's fair. But it is not the whole story. And what you think you know about who exactly is out there in front of clinics or at their marches for life is probably wrong. So if you're a person who believes in the right to choose. And in the progress that has been made on that front over the decades, then it's important for you to take a really hard look at who is pushing the anti-choice agenda, and where they're doing their recruiting. I'm Jordan Rawlings. And this is the big story, Sydney Loni is a freelance journalist, she investigated the anti-abortion movement in Canada for flare dot com. Hi, said, hi, let's start with general question, how supportive are we of rate to choice in Canada? I always thought we were very supportive in this sort of non-issue. There was a poll in two thousand seventeen that found seventy seven percent of Canadians support pro choice, and that's a pretty good number. I thought it was on a low side. And if you compared to other countries like, France, it's actually eighty six in Sweden's eighty seven percent and support. So we're, we're still and we have a little ways to go. What is the typical image of the pro-life abortion activists anti-abortion activists in Canada? Gentleness conception out there that sort of, you know, angry white men yelling at side, abortion clinics. And when I did this piece, and I spoke to many anti-abortion. Vists. That's what they said that they wanted to sort of dispel, that myth at. That's what they are. And but I think that it's sort of persistent. We think that sort of a small fringe group. I know you know, when I was in university. It'd be the handful of people walk by maybe five or six people with signs you kinda give them wide berth, because there is sort of seen as these kind of weird outliers. And I don't think that that's the case anymore. What's changing, I think the biggest thing surprised me the most too, is just sort of the, the size of the movement now and the youth of the movement. It's, it's not it's, it's young educated women women university. Many of them when Wednesday spoke to many of the women, I spoke to are pursuing careers in healthcare, and that also surprised me, but these are sort of young articulate s- university, educated women. How do they come by these views because that does seem really in congress to me? Yeah. And that's a good question. I think one of the women, I spoke to some of it is based on religion. They've been brought up with these views and they say that their family is also PR. Prolife, but many, you know, in highschool, they've sort of set of tapped into this, and it sort of resonated with them. Many women, I spoke to said that they saw as being cool movement whereas really years ago. Yeah. Years ago, you know, the said that being pro pro choice was sort of the default everyone, you know, their grandparents are now pro-choice, and they see this sort of rebellious the new rebellion movement and whereas before it was cool to be pro choice. Now, they say it's cool to be pro life that seems so strange to, to be honest. Handle telegraphing my head around that one as well. But yeah, I think a lot of us who are pro choice or just in general progressive people. They see you, as the future of their movement. Right. Outta your member after the shooting and park land, Florida last year. There was this whole movement from these teens and the, the message around them from adults was youth. They're going to save us. Right. And, and it seems like you know, we see young kids fighting climate change and speaking out against racism, and I feel like abortion, just gets lumped in there, too. And maybe it shouldn't. Yeah, I, I think maybe I think maybe we've become complacent about it. I mean I certainly had no idea how big this movement was earlier in may that the March for life, which I'd never actually even wasn't really on my radar took place. And that sort of where I interviewed on these women who are preparing to go the March, and they're excited about the March when young woman, I interviewed was hosting a gala at in Victoria, the university after the March. So it's like a big it's a big cool party and the March started in nineteen ninety eight and were. Seven hundred participants in this last year, they were fifteen thousand and that's only an Ottawa. So the marches all over your city across the country, and it just shows the size of the growing Amenam of this movement. Tell me about a couple of the young women, you've met, if there are any who stand, particularly to you, and what they're like. Yeah. I think one woman in particular, she's she's eighteen eighteen and she was her first March. And she was just like a kid going on a trip. She was really excited about it. It was her first she's, she just graduated from high school. Her family is she told me was also antiabortion, but she was excited to be other people, our age who share those views, and she wanted to be part of the movement, and wanted to possibly in the future, maybe intern at some of these organizations. And that's the other thing is a lot of these groups have interns, who start very young and use of Ashby, where these people are coming from. They start out, you know, they were being recruited in high school to, to come into the offices and work there. And then they end up also out on the streets holding the signs. And the things that we do. See that was actually my next question is, is this, a conscious effort by anti-abortion organizations to get younger? I would say so definitely and even the place to everyone, who I talked to said that they had I'm been exposed to these ideas in high school and in some schools, one of the women, I didn't end up talking to her article, had followed her, and we had talked a little bit, but she actually goes into high schools and does talks about, you know, the antiabortion movement. And so there's that aspect as well. What are pro choice organizations doing to try to? They must see the tide turning than I, I don't know, if the thought that the right metaphor being possibly one woman, I spoke to was very concerned in and she had no when she found out, she wasn't an activist didn't think of his office when before the March for life. But then this was the first year that there was one in Toronto as well. And that kind of freaked her out a bit. And so she organized a counter protest in got on Facebook and got all these people involved to come out of warn people was happening part of it, and also to sort of. Have a have a voice for the other side for the pro choice side, and another woman in Berta longtime activists said that. Yes, there is momentum and that the people who are active in the movement are doing whatever they can about it. But the society is a whole has become a little bit on the complacence. I we don't really haven't really isn't on our radar, and we look so th and think, oh, that could never happen here. And I think the concern is, you know, if it can happen there, I can happen anywhere and you we have some very vocal pro-life politicians who've been elected, and people are electing them despite having them holding these views. So that is an issue. We did a podcast last week about Sam who Stor off who's, obviously interesting not female, but very young. And very vocally anti-abortion, and when we talk about this stuff, even people who are critics of him say, they would never actually change the law. Stephen Harper didn't change the laws. Andrew Scheer has no plans to change the laws. Right. So there is. It's not necessarily complacency. But there just seems to be a thought that this is a done deal. Right. I think that's maybe dangerous thought I think that the anti-abortion people spoke to said that their goal was to, to support pro life politicians into get into show them that they have a huge movement behind them, but there's also this sort of more insidious things terms of, you know, our, our side in tarot back to the nineties, and we're taking steps back everywhere else in related ways. And just how hard it is for women to access abortion in Canada. I think people don't necessarily realize that I mean, you've only been only got one MP is nineteen thousand seventeen and in other provinces. Well, it's not it's not easy there. It's hard to find clinics to find train doctors long wait times. So it's a lot of barriers that,
