I like the longer blade the bigger blade but in the in the standard lego version. That's the squared off version of strider. It's just a little bit to block. He of the pocket but this concealed carry is thinner overall and as you can see contoured so A really really great knife and got an excellent deal. like a friend deal For it and a really really psyched about it So i was carrying this today. I've had it for a while. But it sort of got on the back burner as other knives in grew. And then i also carried my Sal belly trapper in tobacco bone from rough rider. Now this nice i.

Lines seventy four four six four four eight seven. I want to show off before we get into the meat and potatoes of the show. I i'm going use this opportunity this platform because it's not it's a show. It's a platform in two thousand ten and beyond so i'm gonna use this platform to show off The knife i've been showing off over and over actually for over a year now When i first carved it out of a deal I showed it off this awesome unheated thing. And then after i spoke with alex tanguay were on the podcast. Who is You know he's a he's a lab is like a professor in the lab a. Working with different steals and figuring out way he treats them. I sent him the nice. Finally so i showed it off. Then he treated beautifully Senate back to me. And then i've been working out here is this is about as done as it's going to be showed this off on thursday night knives the other night and well here. I'm gonna i'm gonna show you hear this. I call this pattern. The virginia bowie or no other reason except that i live in virginia and i think it sounds cool. It sounds a little old timey. Sounds like something that might already exist. And how i define. The virginia bowie is a full belly. Like there's a little bit of straight right here but creating much it's all belly and then a real long sharpened switch four or back cutting things and then there's always a swell right here and i say because i made one more and like mama luka forgot to bring it down but that's probably my most ed seed Fix blade all times and it's just a smaller version of this But what. I did differently on this Was pretty much full. Flat grind it. So it's it's a pretty darn sharp. It's five thirty seconds of inch thick. So it's it's thinner than your standard quarter inch bowie and for a minute. I'm gonna blame things on my equipment. But i i a craftsman. You know a series about forty two inch by two inch belt grinder okay. It's one speed in that speed is very fast. And it's it's it's for sharpening axes in tools and stuff but it's not so much for The fine kind of grinding With knife making. And i am not saying that i am capable of that kind of find grinding. I do not have technique but but frequently. When i use that tool i create real deep gouges with the with the belts that i use and i use progressively smaller belts. But i just don't have the chops or the practice down to get rid of that kind of that kind of you see those grind lines in there. So those kind of sticking micro a little bit. And yes. I could hand rub it until they're gone but then i start to worry about And this may be something. I need to redress with some of the actual professionals. I speak with. But i'm worried that if there's too much of a gouge here and i i worry with the sandpaper right here. That is going to be wavy. So you got to do the whole thing. I don't know if i lack the patients or what but anyway Something i'm it's very sharp. Okay and it. It acts through hymns nicely. And that back edge is more wedge like but it also comes to a pretty keen. So i'm i'm thinking of this as a sort of a. It's kind of fun to do. So scott black canvas. My carta in purple liners and i really like this handle. I liked this handle style. It's kind of a miran handle style and this swail here Let's you choke back a little bit and And leverage it as a shopper so anyway showing it off i lake gotta make a a She's for it now.

"We've been serious there. We'll have a smooth transition, and we'll see what the people ultimately decided when all the votes have been cast. We have a process breath Constitution lays out how electors vote. It's a very detailed process laid out waiting to comply with all of that, and that I am very confident that we will have a good transition. And, of course, that set the hair on fire of some of the reporters who cover the White House, including the guy from CNN, who probably is one of the rudest reporters ever to work. The White House beat. Cut. Six. Please rob. It is such a hope against all hopes that this is going to work out the president's favor that even people inside the campaign believe it's over. You even had the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, saying earlier today and you played this just a short while ago that they're going to make a smooth Transition to a second Trump administration ATT. This point is, it is just extraordinary here. The secretary of state really sounding like Baghdad, Bob at this point To President Trump Saddam Hussein. Hey, He has a great sense of humor that that guy's butt. But again, he's when Pompeo is pushed when he's pushed. He's not willing to utter the words that Again. You can understand as Donald Trump's secretary of state. Hey, Well, let me just play Cut five. But again, I think he makes a mistake by talking by by by invoking the phrase A smooth transition to a second Trump administration. But this has cut 51 more clarification. You believe there's widespread voter fraud that the reports that we're getting from Pennsylvania from Michigan? Shall we vote totals and NASA leads or significant leads? 99% reporting are going to be overturned and the United States failed to conduct a fraudulent free election rich on the secretary of state. I'm getting calls from all across the world. These people are watching our election. They understand that we have a legal process. They understand that this takes time, right? Took us 37 plus days in election back in 2000. Conductive, successful transition. Then I'm very confident that will account and we must count every legal but we must make sure that any boat that wasn't lawful not because of that deludes your vote. It's done improperly. Got to get that right when we get it, right? I'll get it right. We're in good shape. Yeah. I mean, if I looked at him as sort of a calming influence, I don't think that he would That he would participate as a West Point graduate in some sort of Ah military putsch to a takeover the the U. S government but anyway, so Question A Zeiss a week we can continue on the Charlie Baker question. But other questions Mike from Pale, I I think he was being you know, just typical Harvard law school guy being a little too cute. Maybe for the circumstances, and he may be.

My whole life actually visited the grave of a friend of mine who passed away there and his friends at the cemetery. So, um I get a little annoyed at this kind of response against President Trump is I saw him there. Not personally, but I saw that he was there and a great job. Honey did displaying Ah Ah presence there and I remember the Obama administration, Obama and Biden administration when they let 1000 veterans die in appointments. From from lack of theirs should be 1000 metres in the hospital because they couldn't get their appointments on time. I think of of ah, with the Benghazi episode when they could have finished a C 1 30 gunship to protect it. So he has. Suddenly they have the moral high ground and they're attacking President Trump who's built the military up, which was left in shambles by the Obama Biden administrator needed Pasir force needed parts for their for their planes for the Jets, the Navy's deprived So now I don't remember. I do remember some of your programs. They're talking about the treatment. The vets. I don't remember that nonstop news press talking about how the vectors died. The hospital's how our military is depleted. And so now, here we are today. We're dealing with China is a military threat against us. Would President Trump has built up the military and help the veterans as allowed them to go? A different hospitals, not just V. A hospitals, and none of this person comes out of the woodwork and just kind of brings his charges against President Trump. It's just one more thing. It's just one more thing next week will be saying is President Trump details of gorilla? I mean, what's the next thing coming down, Pike? Well, I don't wait to see by the way when you mentioned when you mention Benghazi. I just want to mention that we We lost four American heroes. There's including the ambassador, but also young guy named Glen Doherty. From AD Winchester, Massachusetts, and I got to know his family. Pretty well. In particular. His mom on came from a wonderful family and a real kick in all the World War. Two vet that I have met were in favor of President Trump. We're talking about guys that jumped into Normandy on D Day. Right. And power troop is that I've met. I've met the Flying Tigers, The Indianapolis the gentlemen are the soldiers, the Navy seals or on the USS Indianapolis. So President Trump has done more to protect our kind of build on military up, so I really Just look at look at the deed to get the words. The actions speak louder than words. I would agree with you on that, and I also would like to think that some of the mainstream media Could display Ah ah little skepticism. Azad put because the stories the way they're written there written very cleverly, you know, and You know another bombshell allegation, and the average person is kind of not paying attention. They don't understand that a bombshell allegation is just that that we look at this some miles the same sub dad, so I'm with you, John. But again, you've heard some different viewpoints tonight. And I hope to hear some more appreciate You called John talks Big. Thanks very much. All right, all of a sudden our lines. We got open lines. Which to me?

Was there man I for off SNL, right? And I remember we were in Hawaii Ray was there. We all kind of gathered around brother Ray as he held court. Remember being backstage in watching him. You know, a blind like that'd be led down to the stage. And then just just to have the soul that that man. Had rest in peace. Ray charles. Thank you. That's awesome, seven minutes after six o'clock. Good morning. How are you this morning and Mary Christmas and happy holidays is December nineteenth already going into Christmas is coming around the corner and finished up so much. I finished. I I can't believe what I do. But I did. And I think we're okay. I think I'm okay, I keep thinking that Joe patchy in lethal weapon. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. I got I think I got it. I'm not sure, but I did want to visit some vital news items that break, and you watch and you go what the heck is going on. I am your translator Darth Vader. I knew judge data. So you keep I can't believe I'm watching what happened with Michael Flynn, yitzi. I can't believe so you, and I have to figure out what that was and meeting the story here. What a federal judge is delay sentencing for former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Judge Emmet Sullivan accepted a recommendation for a delay from government lawyers defense attorneys general Flynn is thought to be cooperating in the ongoing Russia investigation. I swear to goodness they still staying with this Flint pleaded guilty to like the FBI that context with a top Russian official. You know, the whole story. Judge Sullivan called it very serious events and said sentencing will be revisited in ninety days, and before the delay was ordered Flynn said he was aware that he was lying to the FBI. And that was a crying President Trump suggested that Flynn was duped into like, so then then this guy, then this judge like goes off the rails. He goes off the rails. And everybody said, and I have to say, and I noticed that people. You get upset if someone tells it tells you exactly what's happening in a court of law, and it may seem anti Donald Trump. But it's really not. It's exactly the way the law is and we met you, and I may not like the year. But it's it's the way it is this guy. This guy went off the rails. And this was prejudging the politics predicted something like this would happen. This is a federal judge Tuesday delayed sentencing once again defense Astra sentencing. Yeah. So apparently goes in and he's all over the place is the judges the judges. And he says, oh, he's says treason you've committed treason, he seems to three star general. He's a judge. And he's he's he's costing general Flynn. And we didn't see this is what we heard they don't allow cameras in the courtroom there. And they said you could be treated any calls. It back. Apologizes for about this guy does not sound mentally fit. So here's what I'm thinking is going to translate this. And I need you to help me break. Arthur Dow's on this morning, and he'll break it. Now is this a ploy because we thought he was gonna get no set no jail time. General flynn. Thank you know. The judge did a complete turnaround. It sounded emotionally unstable from what with the reports that we heard this judge sound like was not emotionally stable. Clearly, you trees in your what you did you sold out your country. He misstated facts about that the general Flynn representing Turkey while he worked for the president mistake, then he calls. He calls things back in the apologize. This sounds like a nutjob or is it a game? That's judges playing that he will let Flynn off. But he just didn't want it to appear like he was gonna just let Flynn off. And and now we go back and revisit this. And if you're gonna you're going to go along with the FBI investigation, then you go back and you go along with the FBI investigation would revisit your sentencing. At another time is that a ploy. And Arthur Dalla aren't they've been great and right on the money and predicting a lot of these things including about Bob Menendez when the Senator Menendez everybody thought, oh, he's going to jail and Dow had not so fast. And that's exactly what happened. So you don't wanna miss Arthur coming up in the nine o'clock hour and exactly what that was that judge playing a game. Or is he really just plain whacked out nuts. I am. So sick of you having our laws deciphered by judges. We were whether it's the supreme court or US district a district. Judge federal judge who what what what what you? Why can't we just make our laws abide by laws, and that's it? The judges always have to decipher and interpret their own take on the laws, and it's very very frustrating to see and what really hurts. I I don't see any collusion. I don't see what general Flynn did. I don't see anything. He lied. He was forced looked like he was trapped into line. The guy's a three star general. And if you heard congressman Peter King, he was on Fox News after he was on our show jumped on I believe with Harris Faulkner and visit you know, general Flynn help shut down ISIS. He saw what was going on. He knew exactly move militarily. How to shut this. This this devastating you criminal organization down an ISIS, and he helped can we can you give the general Andy credo, then you judge you because you did good law school? Now, you're gonna be a judge because it was a political appointment now you're gonna tell us three-star general what to do I take offense to that eight seven seven nine seven twenty nine ninety nine more than welcome to join. And let us know what you think and because you will translate it as well. And then we'll legally break it down written, Mr. dollar, actress and director penny Marshall died, that's. So said age of seventy five had no idea, she was sake seventy five these days way too young. She smokes a spokeswoman for Marshall's family says she passed away peacefully in Hollywood hills home Monday night due to complications from diabetes. Your best Laverne, Shirley. Now. Remember this range from seventy six to eighty three and I was mostly working in clubs every single night back then never saw. Never fan. But, but this woman was one of the great directors of our time paying Marshall. I mean, she directed big with Tom Hanks. I mean, you have to save more than that. I don't know that I was even aware that she drifted big, you know, and she directed other films. That were just like she directed awakenings with Robert deniro and Robin Williams. Remember that brilliant film? Penny Marshall directed that. I mean, it was just unbelievable, you know, league of a league of their own, you know, about the women's baseball with Tom Hanks. So just fantastic. So we say rest in peace penny Marshall, she -ccomplish so much and really broke the barrier for women a directing in Hollywood. And just always always said so a lot of a lot to get into this may Razi Razi at the now, the Donald Trump foundation is going to dissolve in New York and reading here. The Trump foundation will dissolve in a deal with New York's attorney general general Barbara Underwood alleged shocking pattern of illegality by the charitable foundation. She said the pattern was willful and repeated undo it also accused the foundation of coordinating legally with Trump's two thousand sixteen with Donald Trump's two thousand sixteen presidential campaign. When are they going to get off of this, Trump derangement syndrome? They're going after everything I need everything. And you know, what it worries me? About their mental state. Now, I'm worried about Barbara Underwood's mental state in New York states, all they have nothing. They can't even get their housing authority together in the state in the city of New York. And so Ben Carson comes in. Ben Carson comes in angel Cuomo yesterday, the the governor to see how we could save those poor folks in Niger who do not have eat, and they have cockroaches and the living a is just horrendous who do they call they call the Trump administration and bake Carson comes in. Now, it's up to the HUD secretary Ben Carson to decide whether the government is going to take over night you because mega Blasios, and because governor Cuomo cannot Ronnie properly this is inexcusable can we say thank you to the Trump administration. What do you do what do they do? How do they say? Thank you. Well, now, we're going to shut down the Trump foundation, and how many millions of people do you think Trump foundation has actually out the? I mean, really it just shows. I tell you it shows that you know, the progressive social star. They just can't they don't know how to govern me, and they don't wanna do a business owner running. Then they when they run to the guy that they're trying to destroy is. It is time just to stop the fight. Stop. The hate goodness gracious. Do it for the government shutdown. I don't think the government's gonna shut the hopefully, we'll work all that out together. But goodness gracious. Hey, the good, and we'll get into all this. The good news is the Holland tunnel.
