"Of these women's lives in a way that I hoped connects with reader. I found it easier to do that through fiction. I'm Allison done. And this is 51% is never gonna be Because Marie Benedict went from lawyer to author to write historical novels inspired by women whose achievements have been overlooked or underappreciated. New York Times Best selling authors. Latest book Lady Clementine tells the story of the woman beside British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Her story is one of a partner who did not flinch through the darkness of war and who would not surrender either to expectations or two enemies. She also helped advance the women's suffrage movement and laid the groundwork for women in key leadership and military roles. Benedict views herself is an archeologist of sorts, excavating for gotten our unknown women and bringing them into the light to help understand the contributions they've made, and they're pertinence to modern life. Benedict says she can trace her desire to tell untold stories of accomplished women back to when she was a girl. It actually started. I can really trace it when I was in middle school, and I have this incredible aunt who was English professor and a poet and of rebellious nun, and she was really determined to expose me to such a wide range of literature and voices. I was reading things that none of my friends work. And she gave me this book. Excuse me. It's called the mists of Avalon by marrying summer Bradley, and it was a retelling of the earth theory in legend from the perspective of the women. And that was completely groundbreaking. For the time it really opened up my eyes to the fact that there were all these voices, particularly women's voices out there in history and myth and legend and lore, and I had never heard of them and I started to ask myself How history was really formed. And where were these other voices that I knew existed? I took a long detour in my past actually capture those voices. I was a history major, but I ended up being a lawyer and a commercial litigator in New York City for a long time. Until I just knew it wasn't the right fit for me, and I started to really listen to myself and that long sort of suppressed desire Tio excavate these women's stories from the past and the past and I started to walk down the path. Of writing these books. I had a foray into some other genres first, but when I wrote my first Marie Benedict book, the other Einstein That's when I knew I was doing was sort of what I had been meant to do all along. You know, I'm wondering, how did you sit through literature classes in history classes wondering where that other half wass? Well, I mean throughout. I mean, certainly Throughout my years as a history major in college, I kept pushing the envelope on them, and I had a wonderful professor who kind of ended up doing a special project my senior year, which really focused on other voices in the past. Which was something that people really weren't doing that. You know, we're starting to do that. Now We're starting to rewrite that historical narrative. But in the years that followed, you know, even in my law work, I did some pro bono work kind of representing underrepresented voices I did projects for on the Native American group tryingto. It's trying to get back some of artifacts that have been taken from their property. But I just knew that there and I thought about being a history professor in an archeologist when I went through those periods and enter my legal career when I knew I needed to do something else. But it wasn't really until I tried my hand at writing fiction in particular that I really felt I could best capture these voices and share them with his brought up an audience as possible. Make sense. So let's start with the other Einstein. Why did you pick her and please talk about that book a bit. And then of course, we'll get to your latest book. I mean, there's an enormous field of women, too. In your word, excavate. How do you pick who you pick? I really honestly have an enormous list that I keep learning. And I return to it as I'm thinking about my next book. I really feel like you know what I made that decision to write historical fiction, focusing on excavating the women I feel like I developed almost like an antenna for lack of a better descriptive word. And I started to see these women everywhere on there, literally hiding in plain sight, waiting for us to notice them waiting for us to find them. And with that antenna one evening I was reading. I have two sons and one of my sons is a budding scientist, and we were reading a Children's biography of Albert Einstein. And there were about two sentences about this young woman who was in his university physics program. Um, who ended up being married to him during his most prolific period of time that they call it a miracle year. And of course, my antenna went crazy when I read those two sentences, and I went down the rabbit hole of research, which is what always happens when I'm intrigued by a particular woman, and I learned that she was Far more interesting than I could have ever imagined that I could have ever fictionalized and that she had a story that was far beyond. Just being Albert Einstein's life. She had her own unique, really meteoric rise from the backwater of 19th century Serbia, where was actually illegal to attend high school If you were a girl To becoming one of the very first women any university physics program Now the fact that she happened to partner up with Albert Einstein. They had all the same classes and they ultimately got married. It's just another part of her story. But she really had this unique, singular rise that I really felt deserved to be celebrated. And not to mention Then, During the following years, I learned that you know, she and Albert were scientific partners not only through their college years, but also in the years of their marriage. And they, in fact, were married during this most prolific period of his life when he published for groundbreaking theories that really revolutionised physics really created a foundation for modern physics. And if you read their letters, if you know her, you know she had a hand in that. And once I kind of realized that threats and depth of her story, I knew I had to write the other Einstein, which really captures that journey. Okay, So that's based on Einstein's first wife, Maleva. Marriage who's next? Oh God. Then we moved to Carnegie's made which is really the first and only time all right about a fictional woman. And the reason her story is the story of a young Irish immigrant woman who landed in out Andrew Carnegie's home in Pittsburgh, where I'm from and became his mother's ladies made his mother with a powerful force. It was very involved in every aspect of his world. And she went on to influence Andrew Carnegie to become the world's first defense and creator of free library systems, which I benefited from and my family has benefited from tremendously. Um, I showed her story because my own family were Irish immigrants. They came to Pittsburgh, where I grew up where it was now, And it was really the Carnegie libraries of Pittsburgh, which provided them with their first entree into education. You know, at the time period of late 18 hundreds education without mandatory, um and those, those free libraries provided them with access to learning and book. Um and I wanted to kind of figure out why he had made this transformation so unique for the time period. And when I learned he had changed in the 18 sixties when he was a young man when he was still living in Pittsburgh. And that historians have speculated that a woman our relationship had helped that transformation. It responds the story that on that lies behind Karnezis made, um and I had a fictionalized woman because I looked for and I couldn't find her. But I also wanted to sort of paid tribute to all those Important immigrant women that really forms the foundation of our country as well as the men but whose stories are so rarely told. Now let's move to another book, The only woman in the room. So I found a heady Lamar, who was the woman at the core of the only woman in the room when a deer anthropologist friend of mine mentioned this golden age of Hollywood actress that was also an inventor. So I dug deep into her life. And I realized that this woman who became the movie star that we know better as Hattie Lamar was actually born a Jewish refugee in Austria. In the early years of Europe or two, she ends up marrying an arms dealer. Who supplies munitions First Mussolini and then to Hitler. And as she entertains hordes of military men and Mussolini and Hitler themselves. She's learning all the secrets of World War two. Strategy's plans, Weapons designs munitions and actually escaped from this situation. She sees the writing on the wall for the Jewish people should make their way to Hollywood and askyou rises in the film industry..

"A cool title them New York times bestselling author all your books have that stamp on it boom New York times bestseller for ever yeah that's what you need to get in on the ticket you can have breakfast with her tomorrow morning she's gonna be at the congregation Bnai Muna and that's really close to Belle Reve Country Club if you're in that area I think it's ten Bucks or something like that which is perfect because I think tickets are still available does that sound right ten it it sounds very low I think that's a bargain now yeah for me I mean I'm not looking at the correct no I'm only kidding about twelve dollars at the door so ten dollars in advance he said in advance but since it's tomorrow morning you're gonna have to get in the door it's twelve Bucks off hours and very very stand space is limited so you're gonna want to get out there early but yeah you definitely gonna wanna come yet just do a quick search for the conjuring congregation but I am moving up which is just a little bit south of Belle Reve Country Club looks like it's just right across the street from Whitfield school that's right there so I wanted to talk to you about your other books that we did Hedy lamarr the only woman in the room is the name of the book lady climbing teen is the other one and it happens to be about seventeen Churchill what you learn about her oh my gosh so many things well just came out so it's brand new came out last Tuesday this is my recent release so exciting so I discovered Clementine Churchill when I was kind of knee deep in research for the only woman in the room which of course is set world for time two time period and you can't stumble around in the World War two research and not run into Winston after tell right he's everywhere the V. for victory sign to have the cigar and I could help you know I I have sort of have an antenna for historical women in their stories and as I'm not a church Chilean you know that's what people who are really into church a call from South okay excellence but I didn't know he had a family and I knew he had a wife of of a long marriage many decades supposedly really strong one and I wonder where she was you know all these iconic images we see of him we hear of him she's not present on and I couldn't help wondering where this woman who's married to the prime minister of England or more for to where she is during this time period and I went down the rabbit hole re search which is where I always go and I learned that she was she was by no means the quintessential woman behind the man which is a phrase I hate anyway she was beside him in front of leading them in the right direction she assumed the mantle of leadership right along side him throughout World War two and I knew that hers was a story that really had to be told she made so many really impactful decisions potentially world changing contributions that we really don't know about while world changing I'm actually show yeah I'm going to go there so when you start to do some research on this you find dance there are some people that may have and maybe a little bit of an idea of the background you when you try to find people to write about research what what do you normally target are you looking for your own personal curiosity do you try to find a store coal you know around World War two times story of what what's your own what's wrong process like if people you decide around my process is is a little bit unusual I think I mean I think a lot of historical fiction writers they come to a time period that they find physically fascinating and they stay there and that makes our job a little bit easier to because that you become extremely familiar with that time period that is not my journey I follow where the women leave me and so that means you know I might have a book that set in the eighteen hundreds in Pittsburgh I might have a book that set in Austria World War two I'm I have a book that set in eighteen hundreds of Switzerland it really depends on the woman and where her setting is I'm interested in very specific women I'm interested in historical women who have who have made contributions that we live with every day but we don't now let the responsible for them so you know I gave you the example of heavy Lamar really being responsible for wifi yeah so we're living with her legacy every single day but did you know that she was right now on your right in the case of climbing team Churchill what kind of contributions did she make you are alluding that she had these certain things that no one knew about certain things that she's responsible for what are some things you found out about her right well so her story is a little bit different than Hades very different that had eased you know she grew up aristocratic the panelists very similar to Winston actually and which is one of the things that need them together it wasn't until much later in life that she actually received a formal education her family life was very bohemian which is again very strange for the time and what really true them together was a shared love of politics in particular issues surrounding women's rights and humanitarian issues and from the moment that they married she literally plunged into his political world in a way that was unprecedented for the time political wives wives of governmental leaders in England in that time period were they were not seen or heard from and she really was a woman who had a keen political savvy and interest and passion and she utilize the power that have kind of been bestowed her from Winston through Winston to operate for the betterment of the British people and for women and and specifically so is just one example you know whatever role he served she served as his political partner weather was during World War one when he was home secretary and lord admiral in the years after that in the nineteen twenties and thirties and then into the years of World War two when he was what we really know him for as prime minister he was actually extremely powerful for decades prior to that but that was something I really didn't now enter a you know as an American looking at a campaign politics but during World War two she has she undertook so many endeavors that were critical to the success of England and its position one two so for example when England was sort of in the last stages of the war when the last stages of the war alone I should say for America got involved it was really on its last legs they were the last so the last man standing fighting against the **** and other were running out of supplies in America would not commit to enter the war at sea are really believe that the American people had had had enough of death and death and devastation and it was really Europes war and Clementina Winston knew that but knew that they needed the Americans to help them they needed supplies they needed military aid they needed food they needed money so they engaged in a campaign to really Wu FDR's he man they invited them to England Harry Hopkins Averell Harriman the ambassador kill Winamp and they establish these incredibly close relationships with these gentlemen and really show them how critical their aid was and how important it was really to the success of our entire world now and Hey I'm and what most instrumental in those relationships really was climbing team yeah she's the one who forge these key ties so and that led to the lend lease act which will America established here and then led to all this aid and supplies that really allowed Britain to to stay the course against the **** until America got involved in the war it's amazing so that's just one example I can give you lots more but she did things not only that really allowed on England to prevail in the war but she also did things from a domestic standpoint in England when the rest of the leaders were focused on military victories she was making sure that the air raid shelters that the British people were living in ten to fourteen hours a night for months on end during the blitz which had no bathrooms no bad and we're starting to spread have the outbreak of disease she's over hauling them she's she's doing things that that a prime minister's wife wouldn't do today and certainly wouldn't have considered doing the act them but what's in Churchill was only in office for pretty short amount of time all things considered probably the most important time for him to be set in that office so definitely after he was out of office what do climbing team deal well I can certainly tell you during the for just as an example during the time period between World War one and the nineteen twenties and one or two they had to call his wilderness years and during that time period he was out of power which as you can imagine with well known once since reputation made miserable very difficult to get along but you know they had the shared passion for doing good for getting involved in larger issues and they basically established at their home in charge a cut which is called chart while in the countryside of England they established an anti appeasement sort of outpost you know other the primary government under prime minister chamberlain was advocating for appeasing Hitler at all costs he was clearly oh sorry right up against the treaty of of violating the treaty of Versailles and he was again and again given a free pass and the two of them are assembling a leaders experts spies assembling information to gather together to try and convince the British people that it was time to act that they couldn't wait for Hitler to amass more forces and to strike so you know during those years she's working side by side with him to a mass all that information mom so much history here I now raising you know did you have to travel to the U. K. to do any of this research a lot of it yeah I'm assuming lot of it just is landlocked some of the historical documents and things that you can get it otherwise here well and also what's incredible about on the turtles which is unlike any of the other people have written about is so many things about them still survive the half the homes that they lived in the war bunkers where they operated World War two from underneath an innocuous office building and and in downtown London their homes you know you can visit all the places that they once inhabited that they once ruled from it really brings the setting and the characters to life in a way that is very unusual you know when you research historical people and I visit all the places I write about very often the places are so different from what they were like during the time period I'm writing about that was really not the case with the church also was really kind of exciting what is a give you feeling wise how does that influence your right all my gosh it it gives you a sense of setting that's really hard to capture without that you know chart well for example their home it it's like a preserved in time it's set up exactly as it was when they live there so when I'm writing a scene about the two of them playing cards and he's furious and angry because he's out of power and she's had it with his belligerence I can exactly describe the scene yeah because I know the carpet look like in the card table and you know it gives you a level of authenticity and evokes the scene in a way that's hard to do without them that your driver that was messaging you are the less cargo sorry about that I hope they're listening right and did you tell him I'm gonna be on KMOX all right so the New York times bestselling author Marie Benedict joining us in studio on tomorrow if people wanted to check you out at the door tickets are twelve dollars you're gonna be talking to both about Hedy lamarr and also climbing team Churchill and that's a congregation but now I am moving out and I would recommend that you looked it up online it's at three twenty four south Mason road it's just across the street from what field school in its right to Belle Reve Country Club as you kind of get an area that general did you know about re country clubs on the do you go south on Mason and it's right there on the east side of the road so you're gonna learn about that you just flew into town I came here yes it's unbelievable Google maps is very good at lane things out as long as the orientation is still sat straight in along as the top of the screen is north I think we got it but the best thing for people to do is check it out online you'll be there you'll be talking about your books that you're doing a book signing to I am and will have visuals of all the women that I'm talking about the time in fact Marie Benedict thank you so much for coming be alive on the show tonight SO grades I've been phenomenal I in you know best of luck and thank you for coming to St Louis too bad you're not gonna be around long enough to visit some of the areas well.

breakfast with her tomorrow morning in I am fairly interested in this because I don't know a lot about Hedy lamarr or Clementine Churchill she wrote books about them and we're gonna let her have her time she actually is flying in to Saint Louis from what I understand her plane was landing at eight fifteen and she was going to head to the studio and then we're gonna spend a couple of minutes here but a half hour together and then she was going to go to a hotel so we're kind of intermediate point we just don't know exactly when she was gonna make it and so it should be sometime this hour you don't wanna miss them I saw this on KSDK to St Louis restaurants make food network's best fried chicken sandwiches in America I haven't had a good chicken sandwich in a long time it makes me really you're in for it normally if I wanted a chicken sandwich it's chick fillet you can't go wrong with that the problem is the time I'm normally around chick fillet is lined up even though they go very quickly the truck right through man they crank it out boom boom boom boom boom boom still I don't like to wait so I live like to find places that have good chicken I've love fried chicken I'd love chicken wings so when I saw this article I thought I got to get in on this unfortunately my wife doesn't really like chicken wings fried chicken things like that so we don't go out to chicken places all that often so this is the what they had so to St Louis restaurants made this list first one was the bird in beryl have a sandwich that's called the mother klockor and I know I didn't even like really okay whatever I guess people like them plan words fun if each is a large frying chicken thigh topped with caramelized onions red pepper jelly house me pro Val in Red Hot riblets got to be some Saint Louis and they're still looking at this thing I spoke and Bon looks like it's got the poppy seeds on it I am a sucker for chicken wings though not as a couple of places you know my two favorite places for chicken wings in town one call peppers I'd love their sauce they use it like that house sauce number two fitz is over in the loop I think they're chicken wings are fantastic but I I I still

chicken sandwich at southern in a features chicken tenders that have been robbed with the habanera bland then Friday in bay than hot pepper oil the tenders are served on a buttered toasted bun with baby spinach tomato and three pickle chips dipped in sauce in drizzled with fancy ranch dressing that's made with butter milk in line that's a lot of steps a lot of steps you know and what was that the Indiana Jones where he was going through that was the temple of doom are the holy grail or whatever when there's like a million different steps you have to like go through in order to just get through one of the parts I feel like that is like you're trying to get colds and ancient mystery trying to put a sandwich like this together but just from the picture along a looks good you know it's really difficult is taking pictures for restaurants your photographer and you're very talented taking photos for restaurants here in high demand it's hard to make food look super appealing and L. the girls are out there with their phones in the Instagram for the world and they got to England just right and do this or do that you're trying to take pictures for menu it's not a and you have to be but well trained in it maybe that's another demand field in the future states let's see what we get that sandwich they're in mid town olive street they're not too far from us and I have to check them out sometime I got a business showed a record tomorrow maybe I'll hop on down to get some fried chicken after because that looks axle and get the crinkle fries here's another one too and there was one other one on the list it doesn't really count as a local Saint Louis chicken place shake shack has been featured sold we got one of those in Saint Louis I still haven't been there people go nuts for it got a cult following I mean people go absolutely bananas you talk about shake shack they about scream like it's nineteen sixty five the Beatles are coming to town give me particular good chicken wing places I can check out I'm always a fan of those maybe can text them to me at three one four four three six seventy nine hundred or eight hundred nine two five eleven twenty one of the things that I found out is that I I normally stay away from spicy things but lately I've been getting just like the my old and I really enjoyed it so may be I've really deprive myself of spicy things in the past when it really shouldn't have yeah there's so many great restaurants and seamless there's a million different options I found this out any time my wife and I get an opportunity to go out that's not too often we get little date nights but every once in a while we get a date night we find dad's there's over load of the options we can go to and it's you could get we find ourselves going to the same places because we like come but we know there's a million other places to try out and that's kind of fun to discover those places in St Louis there is a line it seems like we're kind of on an island it's weird is a lot of places you can you downtown but the way our studios we're you know we're just a little bit west of talkers sort by just on the fringe of what you would look at is the major downtown area world the tall buildings are in Saint Louis it seems like none of the given this Washington Street over a couple blocks but there's not like a big plethora of restaurants all over the place here is wish there was and just for a programming note where waiting on author Marie Benedict to should be coming in here pretty soon in fact when she gets her we're gonna bring on the air she said she can spend a half hour with us which shot I really am looking forward to other things are gonna be talking about on the show tonight is unlocking iPhones this is become a pretty big controversy between the government and tack government once tech to reveal their secrets in order for them to open up their phones and get information off of on tech companies are hesitant and don't want to do that and some give up and some don't once they give Bob are the ones that normally find himself in some trouble because they always give up more than they should and it's abused apple has held the line and I give them a lot of respect for them but some people are upset it's just a terrorist why when you open up his phone you know yeah who are you signing with here that's I think there's a bigger issue that would be opened up and it's not just trying to open one phone so we'll get to that in this is something me for your own security I think you would want to make sure the government doesn't have the ability to spy on you at will I mean this is something that could have a lot of rapper cautions for anyone that has a smart phone so this is why you should be rooting for apple in this there's a headline I was called could it Missouri's Eric Crichton's make a political comeback whoa whoa now that's a big topic we will probably take some calls on that the next hour a little after ten o'clock some opinion pieces about the way the Major League Baseball has handled the punishment for the Astros I thought the punishment was light there's an opinion piece that came out that said it was too harsh this is kind of one of those mama bear a Papa bear situations you know instead Hey the porridge is too hot the board just you called I you know ID I think you're either one or the other and not a lot of people looking at this right now citing down the middle so we'll take some your calls on that too nice opinion piece on the live trolley that came out we're also going to

"Hey welcome back Dr Michael bus slur joining us he's a public policy analyst you can find us work on town hall newsmax different publications like data professor of finance at Stockton university New Jersey thank you for sticking around doctor Butler my pleasure alliance you know with the United States it seems like a lot has been restructured reorganized with the way we handled trade in other countries is there anything left on the table that the president's working on right now that would be another big step for the United States well we we still have some work to do in the trade front because we we still have to work out a deal with India India puts some tremendous harassed on some of our product motorcycle that put a hundred percent tariff on allied got away with that but so we need to renegotiate that we need to come up with the deal with the European Union now they said they'd like to work toward is zero our policy we'll never get there but anything that's as long as it's fair and the terrorists are fairly low in the same on both sides we can work that out we also have another big opportunity England is about to leave the European Union and a matter of days as such will be able to negotiate a new trade deal with England that I think will be real big while the other thing that politically I don't think president trump will be able to do this year but after he's reelected will probably work on another tax cut these tax the tax cut has proven to be extremely successful now the critics will argue it's added much to the deficit trillions to the deficit that's absolutely not true the tax cut did not add one penny to the deficit why because it was passed in seventeen went into effect in twenty eighteen we took in more tax revenue in twenty eighteen that we did in twenty seventeen well the all the numbers are not in for twenty nineteen yet but it's looking like we'll take in more tax revenue in twenty nineteen that we did in twenty eighteen so that the tax cut did not add to the deficit it's the huge increase in spending that we're going to have to work on and hello have to do something yeah about that right the tax cut does for economic growth and it ends up not causing a decrease in revenue because even though the tax rates go down we generate so much more activity and so much more income you're taxing a lot more income and a little bit lower rate and you end up taking in more revenue plus you end up getting all of the growth and the economy so I think your question was what else can we expect so I think possibly not this year but perhaps in twenty twenty one you'll see trump proposed another tax cut that simplifies the tax code even further makes it in my view a little fairer and also tends to spur economic activity even more I wanted to ask let's say we're in an election year right now and the candidate for the Democrats is elected president the United States of Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren one of those times what can you predict what happened to the economy immediately following an event like that the economy would begin the slow would likely going to a recession and the recovery from that recession will be worse than the recovery from the two oh eight two oh nine recession under Obama and the reason is if the democratic president is elected they will raise taxes on the middle class but raise taxes even more on the upper class are saying that the upper classes should pay their fair share and I'm not exactly sure nobody's ever define what fair share means but they'll raise taxes on the the wealthy and what that does is it reduces capital we need for expansion look at two basic inputs into the economy labor and capital well we're using up all the labor that we have and with this innovation we need large inputs from capital to be able to have the economy grow so when you over tax high income earners or when you consider taxing well which I think would be disastrous that ends up destroying capital formation and tends to stagnate the economy what makes it even worse is when you take the income away from the high income earners that earned it and give it to people at the lower end who haven't earned it the people who received the income now have no incentive to go out and work and all around their own income because they're getting it free from the government yeah two tens that's bag Haiti's economy so you'd see a long period of stagnation with the democratic press while it is not only on the personal side we think about our own personal income but on the corporate side the tax cuts that were done there you talk to your people then they talk about things are going really well for them if there are some of those different tax cuts on the business side that are repealed or at least they go back up that would also have a pretty big impact for exactly the same reason the investment capital that corporations used to expand the first investment capital they look at is their retained earnings earnings after taxes in after they paid out dividends well because the tax rates went down the retained earnings have gone up now they have much more investment capital to expand the be a completely fair they've been a little slow to invest that last year mostly because of the uncertainty in the economy mostly because of the foreign trade deals but again that's now on getting text right but if they do raise the taxes on the corporation also reduce the retained earnings it will also mean that investment projects are not quite as profitable because you have to pay more money in taxes so that again that will tend to slow down economic growth and stagnate the economy so you've written op ed columns for major newspapers for the last couple of decades I mean your online working people find your work so the easiest places my Twitter is at ambos floor that chat and B. U. S. Ellie are and if you're on Facebook my pages called funding democracy so just be on your Facebook search funding democracy can see everyone of my call her effects and I followed by Dr Michael boss slur a professor finances stocked in university in New Jersey funding democracy on Facebook look him up on there make sure you give a follow on Twitter to which is at AM bus there thank you so much for spending time with us on overnight America thank you rise my pleasure look forward to doing it again we've had him on a couple of different times always an excellent and very knowledgeable guest on the TV K. technologies gas line we're gonna have a mine again in the future I mean I like the confidence that I hear that were moving steps in the right direction from someone as experienced as he is and you can see these things as they play out in the next hour author Marie Benedict is in studio she's in town short a couple historical novels one nine Hedy lamarr and another one I Clementine Churchill so since she's having a breakfast with a bunch of people here in Saint Louis I think it would be fun to have her in so at some point she's flying in she is I think has landed but she's on her way to the studio we hope to get around soon don't.

"Watch news I'm Alex Bregman mayor person was called it unfortunate the civil rights lawsuit filed this week by circuit attorney Kim Gardner alleging there's a conspiracy to remove Gardner from office I'm I've not been involved in any meetings not one single meeting to discuss anything like that so beyond that I guess I'm not going to comment on the pending litigation so you would say you're not part of any alleged conspiracy to remove can garner from absolutely not the suit names the city the police union the special prosecutor and others alleging they've created a legal drama decide to get rid of Gardner meantime the union representing predominantly African American Saint Louis police officers is not calling circuit attorney gardeners lawsuit unsubstantiated the ethical society polices president sergeant heather Taylor says the union doesn't agree with all of gardeners decisions cases that have been legitimate that from my division myself that we felt were great great investigations for are victims of violent crime that warrants were issued Taylor would not endorse gardeners lawsuit but says it's impossible to ignore the long history of discrimination within the department if you recently bought an autographed item from former cardinals pitcher Omar all the virus or loaned him some money Manchester police want to talk to you because you have been scammed detective sergeant Brian yelled says a man has been posing as Allah verison selling autographed balls and other items John says he was convincing enough that a man let him stay with him off and on believing he was the

Louis is newsradio KMOX cloudy Thursday with a high thirty six some outlook statement came a wax news well overnight America with Ryan record on KMOX sponsored by my goals for the flooring experts Michael storing outlet dot com welcome to all yes the other day and this is how we started really for me at least it's weird when you get these like nine hours everything's turned upside down but the nice thing is everyone's right all the news for the day and at this point to just write great great great great can you go through all the people's garbage to find things that happen talked about also on the show tonight we actually a couple of interesting was doctor Michael bus there's going to join us in about a half hour he's a public policy analyst he's also professor of finance at Stockton university New Jersey we're gonna talk to him about the deal between United States and China what kind of affects that could have long term next hour we have author Marie Benedict who's in town she has two historical novels you doing a public speaking engagements she's actually flying in right now she's gonna join us live in studio to talk about Hedy lamarr in Clementine Churchill to over historical books in if you don't know much about them I think you'll be impressed joining us now friend of camel action here with mark reared in her name Jane do Kerr thank you so much for coming on to overnight America how you deal in boy what a crazy couple days now I've been following you hunt Twitter in you have been quite vocal in your displeasure for the things that have been transpiring out of the circuit attorney's office there's been a lawsuit that was named in a press conference in the following morning overall we we've talked about this a line I don't think too many people need to be caught up in this you can find it a camel X. dot com immediately when you heard about this lawsuit and started to see some of the defendants that were named in the reasoning for it how many red flag started to pop up well it's interesting because even before you know the lawsuit came out we I was talking about how the circuitry deposition had good get and every time the special prosecutor closes in on her she starts to do something violently anti so I is Hey it actually earlier that day had been saying well look for her to do something desperate because local getting to the end here she's going in now her deposition is is is happening the courts have said that the servers can be reviewed by the special prosecutor so look for something will turn up later in the day she filed for divorce lawsuit and I mean I can go into the various levels of frivolous blight one of the people she sued or one she sued the same with police officers association who my represent on Jeff Florida she's to their special prosecutors and sadly she sued a taxpayer who successfully went to court and all received an injunction preventing her from using taxpayer dollars burger criminal defense and the guys successfully got an injunction from a court now the special prosecutor all of their activities had been group reviewed by every level court Missouri polluting the Missouri Supreme Court on more than one occasion but she is said that this is somehow a conspiracy a racist conspiracy to prevent her from doing her job now it is first of all this the statute the federal statute she citing doesn't even apply to county officials right okay so there's not really federal thank you it's set in it says you know officials of the United States so I mean that's just patently frivolous and but the idea that anyone has been able to stop her and competency in any way shape or form is a joke mom she's got to do everything she wanted to do in including as reported by camel axes you know Kevin Kaline she turned down two thousand six hundred warrants applications for warrants in felonies in just two thousand nineteen let's get then once that also were times laps then it automatically have the charges dropped I mean there's a lot of things going all resulted in these are so many problems with that office there are so many layers and in so for her to say that anyone has been able to in any way in here hurrying competence is if it's frightening truly sound but here's the problem that date I think people are underestimating the seriousness of this political stunt that she's pulled first of all being funded by out of state interest you have no interest in our community which is very very disheartening were in at the crossroads of the hundred ninety four homicides over ninety percent of which are African American school being slaughtered in the streets they ought to sue her on the victims and the families because I mean this is this is this is just a crisis level the other serious problem is we have all the members of the of the St Louis metropolitan police department we this includes police officers association is the bargaining agent for all of the officers not the highest of white shirts but the line officers on the street these are the people that investigate and solve crimes and then they go to court and you know to convict criminals well the lawyer representing them in court in these criminal trials is now suing them and please log into so they're lawyer has already impeach them before the trial even in you know I'm no every defense lawyer is going to come in and say well the secretary has said your entire organization everything you do is racist so this is the problem that kind of conflict she should be disqualified from every case well that could happen from a legal matter and then what yeah has huge repercussions and imagine every defense attorney gonna be jumping on that immediately for pretty much any time they're called upon absolutely and the courts are going to have to get involved and say well can she still the people did she relies on to make these cases you know what we what what we can do is have our officers getting into civil and criminal trouble because of this pending lawsuit yeah Jane do Kerr joining us here and you're going on the record saying there is no secret society with monthly meeting secret handshakes things like that that go on there's no giant conspiracy between all of the offices against the circuit attorney it's either that or she may be incompetent it's it's what are the other I don't know which is the problem is she has determined that criticism is a racist conspiracy sure mmhm and that's a problem and that you know what this is the if you can't handle the criticism for your abysmal performance in office yell is the idea that you would use you know racism as an excuse for your abysmal performance I mean it's it's it's hurting our community yeah and keep in mind too she's asking for damages she wants money in order I think yeah and where do you think that's coming from your taxpayer money and on top of that imagine if anyone that had something means said to them at some point in their life could petition the government through a lawsuit in order to say I am damages for that come on now all out now is what it is it's outrageous and you know she's doing in her official capacity as prosecutors can you do that no and that's a whole nother layer of legal onto she's using her office to get the images money for herself that called a crime the singer went to prison for that you'll get to use your office in order to get damages and money for yourself yeah what are the odds that a higher level maybe the Attorney General or the F. B. I. or someone else looks at this individual case well it's in federal court and you know I mean she's going to have to answer to the court she's going to have to answer the sad part is for example this poor taxpayer uses a taxpayer so now he's got to go out and hire a lawyer to get this nonsense dismiss now with warm chair ma'am he saving the textile dollars money he actually did a favor for the system to prevent her from paying lawyers to give her advice about the Fifth Amendment some believable than usual capacity that's the whole reason why she's there she should know these things you know and this is just a lawyer beyond can drain you know what really bothers me too is and you see this all the time when it comes to national media that tries to come into a certain community the normally only give one side they don't like to dig deep into it and there's some sort of sensational headline that they can grab because their national audience legacy in it and then they come in and then all of a sudden it's Kim gardeners the biggest victim in the world and work here screaming are you even listening to the people here try to be crazy when using those what I've got I've gotten told by you know California and I'm you know nothing about our community do you understand that over ninety percent of the of the hundred ninety four people murdered African American dad is a racist conspiracy these poor people up in north Saint Louis in all around this community are getting slaughtered in the street our children are getting slaughtered in the streets and there's nothing for crime victims yeah why has no one talking about the victims of crime yeah that's what I would argue if you were to talk to the people that have been victimized or their family members that may have been killed asked them if they believe justice was served in you know a lot of times the probably find out well they never took the time never talk to me maybe they didn't even find the person maybe the person was found in the got a slap on the wrist and I don't think any of those people are satisfied with the way things have been handled well an exhibitor use on that who is the seven year old who was gunned down playing next to his house in the in the killer can fast yes he in fact Saddam.

"Title they have New York times bestselling author all your books have that stamp on it boom New York times bestseller for ever yeah so what you need to get in on the ticket you can have breakfast with her tomorrow morning she's gonna be at the congregation benign Muna and that's really close to Belle Reve Country Club if you're in that area I think it's ten Bucks or something like that which is perfect because I think tickets are still available does that sound right ten it it sounds very low I think that's a bargain now yeah for me I mean I'm not looking at the correct no I'm only kidding twelve dollars at the door so ten dollars in advance he said in advance but since it's tomorrow morning you're gonna have to get at the door it's twelve Bucks off hours and very very thin space is limited so you're going to want to get out there early but yeah you definitely gonna want to come yeah just do a quick search for the conjuring congregation benign moon up which is just a little bit south of Belle Reve Country Club looks like it's just right across the street from Woodfield school that's right there so I wanted to talk to you about your other books that we did Hedy lamarr the only woman in the room is the name of the book lady climbing teen is the other one it happens to be about seventeen Churchill what you learn about her oh my gosh so many things well just came out so it's brand new came out last Tuesday this is my sent release so exciting so I discovered climbing teacher tell when I was kind of knee deep in research for the only woman in the room which of course is set world for time two time period and you can't stumble around in the World War two research and not run into winsome answer tell right he's everywhere the V. for victory sign have the cigar and I could help you know I I have sort of have an antenna for historical women in their stories and as I'm not a church Chilean you know that's what people who are really into church a call from South okay excellence but I didn't know he had a family and I knew he had a wife of of a long marriage many decades supposedly really strong one and I wonder where she was you know all these iconic images we see of him we hear of him she's not present on and I couldn't help wondering where this woman who's married to the prime minister of England or more per to where she is during this time period and I went down the rabbit hole research which is where I always go and I learned that she was she was by no means the quintessential woman behind the man which is a phrase I hate anyway she was beside him in front of them leading them in the right direction she assumed the mantle of leadership right along side him throughout World War two and I knew that hers was a story that really had to be told she made so many really impactful decisions potentially world changing contributions that we really don't know about while world changing I'm actually show yeah I'm going to go there so when you start to do some research on this you find dance there are some people that may have and maybe a little bit of an idea of the background you when you try to find people to write about research what what do you normally target are you looking for your own personal curiosity do you try to find a store coal you know around World War two times story it what what's your own what's wrong process like if people decide to route my process is is a little bit unusual I think I mean I think a lot of historical fiction writers they come to a time period that they find physically fascinating and they stay there and that makes our job a little bit easier to because that you become extremely familiar with that time period that is not my journey I follow where the women leave me and so that means you know I might have a book that set in the eighteen hundreds in Pittsburgh I might have a book that set in Austria World War two I'm I have a book that set in eighteen hundreds of Switzerland it really depends on the woman and where her setting is I'm interested in very specific women I'm interested in historical women who have who have made contributions that we live with every day but we don't know that the responsible for them so you know I gave you the example of heavy Lamar really being responsible for wifi yeah so we're living with her legacy every single day but did you know that she was right now on your right in the case of climbing team Churchill what kind of contributions did she make you are alluding that she had these certain things that no one knew about certain things that she's responsible for what are some things you found out about her right well so her story is a little bit different than had he is a very different that had these you know she grew up aristocratic the panelists very similar to Winston actually and which is one of the things that need them together it wasn't until much later in life that you actually received a formal education her family life was very bohemian which is again very strange for the time and what really true them together was a shared love of politics in particular issues surrounding women's rights and humanitarian issues and from the moment that they married she literally plunged into his political world in a way that was unprecedented for the time political wives wives of governmental leaders in England in that time period were they were not seen or heard from and she really was a woman who had a keen political on savvy and interest and passion and she utilize the power that have kind of been the store to her from Winston through Winston to operate for the betterment of the British people and for women and and specifically so is just one example you know whatever role he served she services political partner weather was during World War one when he was home secretary and lord admiral in the years after that in the nineteen twenties and thirties and then into the years of World War two when he was what we really know him for as prime minister he was actually extremely powerful for decades prior to that but that was something I really did now enter a you know as an American looking at a campaign politics but during World War two she has she undertook so many endeavors that were critical to the success of England and its position during one too so for example when England was sort of in the last stages of the war when the last stages of the war alone I should say for America got involved it was really on its last legs they were the last so the last man standing fighting against the **** and other were running out of supplies in America would not commit to enter the war FC are really believes that the American people had had had enough of death and death and devastation and it was really Europes war and Clementina Winston knew that but knew that they needed the Americans to help them they needed supplies they needed military aid they needed food they needed money so they engaged in a campaign to really Wu FDR's key man they invited them to England Harry Hopkins Averell Harriman the ambassador give Winamp and they establish these incredibly close relationships with these gentlemen and really show them how critical their aid was and how important it was really to the success of our entire world now and Hey I'm and more most instrumental in those relationships really was climbing team yeah she's the one who forge these key ties so and that led to the lend lease act which will America established here and then led to all this aid and supplies that really allowed Britain to to stay the course against the **** until America got involved in the war it's amazing so that's just one example I can give you lots more but she did things not only that really allowed on England to prevail in the war but she also did things from a domestic standpoint in England when the rest of the leaders were focused on military victories she was making sure that the air raid shelters that the British people were living in ten to fourteen hours a night for months on end during the blitz which had no bathrooms no bad and we're starting to spread have the outbreak of disease she's over hauling them she's she's doing things that that a prime minister's wife wouldn't do today and certainly wouldn't have considered doing the accent but what some Churchill was only in office for pretty short amount of time all things considered probably the most important time for him to be set in that office so definitely after he was out of office what do climbing team deal well I can certainly tell you during the for just as an example during the time period between World War one and the nineteen twenties and one or two they had a period call his wilderness years and during that time period he was out of power which as you can imagine with well known Winston's reputation made miserable very difficult to get along but you know they have the shared passion for doing good for getting involved in larger issues and they basically established at their home in charge a cut which is called chart while in the countryside of England they established on an anti appeasement sort of outpost you know other the primary government under prime minister chamberlain was advocating for appeasing Hitler at all costs he was clearly oh sorry against the treaty of of violating the treaty of Versailles and he was again and again given a free pass and the two of them are assembling a leaders experts spies assembling information to gather together to try and convince the British people that it was time to act that they couldn't wait for Hitler to amass more forces and to strike so you know during those years she's working side by side with him to a mass all that information mom so much history here I now raising you know did you have to travel to the U. K. to do any of this research a lot of it yeah I'm assuming lot of it just is landlocked some of the historical documents and things that you can get it otherwise here well and also what's incredible about on the turtles which is unlike any of the other people have written about is so many things about them still survive the half the homes that they lived in the war bunkers where they operated World War two from underneath an innocuous office building and and in downtown London their homes you know you can visit all the places that they once inhabited that they once ruled from it really brings the setting and the characters to life in a way that is very unusual you know when you research historical people and I visit all the places I write about very often the places are so different from what they were like during the time period I'm writing about that was really not the case with the church also was really kind of exciting what is a give you feeling lies how does that influence your right all my gosh it it gives you a sense of setting that's really hard to capture without that you know chart well for example their home it it's like a preserved in time it's set up exactly as it was when they live there so when I'm writing a scene about the two of them playing cards and he's furious and angry because he's out of power and she's had it with his belligerence I can exactly describe the scene yeah because I know the carpet look like in the card table and you know it gives you a level of authenticity and evokes the scene in a way that's hard to do without that take your driver that was messaging you are the less cargo sorry about that I hope they're listening right and did you tell him I'm gonna be on KMOX all right so the New York times bestselling author Marie Benedict joining us in studio on tomorrow if people wanted to check you out at the door tickets are twelve dollars you're gonna be talking to both about Hedy lamarr and also climbing team Churchill and that's and congregation but now I am moving out and I would recommend that you looked it up online it's at three twenty four south Mason road it's just across the street from what field school and that's right the Belle Reve Country Club as you kind of get an area that general just you know Barry country clubs on the do you go south on Mason and it's right there on the east side of the road so you're gonna learn about that you just flew into town a little I came here yes it's unbelievable Google maps is very good at lane things out as long as the orientation is still sat straight in a long as the top of the screen is north I think we got it but the best thing for people to do is check it out online you'll be there you'll be talking about your books that you're doing a book signing to I am and well the visuals of all the women that I'm talking about the time in fact Marie Benedict thank you so much for coming be alive on the show tonight SO grades I've been phenomenal I in you know best of luck and thank you for coming to St Louis too bad you're not gonna be around long enough to visit some of the areas well.

get through one of the parts I feel like that is like you're trying to dip codes and ancient mystery trying to put a sandwich like this together but just from the picture along a looks good you know it's really difficult is taking pictures for restaurants your photographer and you're very talented taking photos for restaurants here in high demand it's hard to make food looks super appealing and all the girls are out there with their phones in the instagrams of the world and they got to England just right and do this or do that you're trying to take pictures for menu it's not and you have to be well trained in it maybe that's another demand field in the future states let's see what we get that sandwich there in mid town olive street they're not too far from us and I have to check them out sometime I got a business showed a record tomorrow maybe all hop on down to get some fried chicken after because that looks excellent I got the crinkle fries here's another one too and there was one other one on the list it doesn't really count as a local Saint Louis chicken place shake shack has been featured sold we got one of those in Saint Louis I still haven't been there people go nuts for it got a cult following I mean people go absolutely bananas you talk about shake shack they about scream like it's nineteen sixty five the Beatles are coming to town give me a particular good chicken wing places I can check out I'm always a fan of those maybe can text them to me at three one four four three six seventy nine hundred or eight hundred nine two five eleven twenty one of the things that I found out is that I I normally stay away from spicy things but lately I've been getting just like the my old and I really enjoyed it so may be I've really deprive myself of spicy things in the past when I really shouldn't have yeah there's so many great restaurants and seamless there's a million different options I found this out any time my wife and I get an opportunity to go out that's not too often we get little date nights but every once in a while we get a date night we find dad's there's over load of the options we can go to and it's you could get we find ourselves going to the same places because we like come but we know there's a million other places to try out and that's kind of fun to discover those places in St Louis there is a lot it seems like we're kind of on an island it's weird there's a lot of places you can you downtown but the way our studios we're you know we're just a little bit west of talkers sort by just on the fringe of what you would look at is the major downtown area world the tall buildings are in Saint Louis it seems like none of the given this Washington Street over a couple blocks but there's not like a big plethora of restaurants all over the place here and just for a programming note were waiting on author Marie Benedict to should be coming in here pretty soon in fact when she gets her we're gonna bring on the air she said she can spend a half hour with us which shot I really am looking forward to other things are gonna be talking about on the show tonight is unlocking iPhones this is become a pretty big controversy between the government and tech government wants tech to reveal their secrets in order for them to open up their phones and get information off of on tech companies are hesitate and don't want to do that and some give up and some don't once they give up are the ones that normally find himself in some trouble because they always give up more than they should and it's abused apple has held the line and I give them a lot of respect for them but some people are upset it's just a terrorist why when you open up is found you know who are you signing with here that's I think there's a bigger issue that would be opened up and it's not just trying to open one phone so we'll get to that in this is something me for your own security I think you would want to make sure the government doesn't have the ability to spy on you at will I mean this is something that could have a lot of rapper cautions for anyone that has a smart phone so this is why you should be rooting for apple in this there's a headline I was called could it Missouri's Eric Crichton's make a political comeback whoa whoa now that's a big topic we will probably take some calls on that the next hour a little after ten o'clock some opinion pieces about the way the Major League Baseball has handled the punishment for the Astros I thought the punishment was light there's an opinion piece that came out that said it was too harsh this is kind of one of those mama bear a Papa bear situations you know instead Hey the porridge is too hot the board just you called I you know ID I think you're either one or the other I'm not a lot of people looking at this right now citing down the middle so we'll take some your calls on that too nice opinion piece on the live trolley that came out we're also going to talk about Josh

"Nice thing is everyone's right all the news for the day and at this point to just write great great great great can you go through all the people's garbage to find things that happen talked about also on the show tonight we actually a couple of interesting was actor Michael bus there's going to join us in about a half hour he's a public policy analyst he's also professor of finance at Stockton university New Jersey we're gonna talk to him about the deal between United States and China what kind of affects that could have long term next hour we have author Marie Benedict who's in town she has two historical novels he's doing a public speaking engagements she's actually flying in right now she's going to join us live in studio to talk about Hedy lamarr in Clementine Churchill two of our historical books in if you don't know much about them I think you'll be impressed joining us now friend of camel ex you here with mark reared in her name Jane do occur thank you so much for coming on to overnight America how you deal in boy what a crazy couple days now I've been following you hunt Twitter in you have been quite vocal in your displeasure for the things that have been transpiring out of the circuit attorney's office there's been a lawsuit that was named in a press conference in the following morning overall we we've talked about this a line I don't think too many people need to be caught up in this you can find it a camel X. dot com immediately when you heard about this lawsuit and started to see some of the defendants that were named in the reasoning for it how many red flag started to pop up well it's interesting because even before you know the lawsuit came out we I was talking about how the circuitry deposition had good get and every time the special prosecutor closes in on her she starts to do something violently anti so I in Hey it actually earlier that day had been saying well look for her to do something desperate because local getting to the end here she's getting it now her deposition is is is happening the courts have said that the servers can be reviewed by the special prosecutor so look for something will turn up later in the day she filed for divorce lawsuit and I mean I can go into the various levels of frivolous blight one of the people she sued or one of she sued the state will police officers association who my represent on Jeff Florida she's to their special prosecutors and sadly she sued a taxpayer who successfully went to court and all received an injunction preventing her from using taxpayer dollars her criminal defense and the guys successfully got an injunction from a court now the special prosecutor all of their activities had been group reviewed by every level court Missouri polluting the Missouri Supreme Court on more than one occasion all on but she is said that this is somehow a conspiracy a racist conspiracy to prevent her from doing her job now it is first of all this the statute the federal statute she citing doesn't even apply to county officials right okay so there's not really federal thank you it's that it it says you know officials of the United States so I mean that's just patently frivolous and but the idea that anyone has been able to stop her and competency in any way shape or form is a joke mom she's got to do everything she's wanted to do in including as reported by camel axes you know Kevin Colleen she turned down two thousand six hundred warrants applications for warrants in felonies in just two thousand nineteen let's get in once they also were times laps then it automatically have the charges dropped I mean there's a lot of things going all resulted in these new cast so many problems with that office there are so many layers and in so for her to say that anyone has been able to in any way in here hurrying competence is if it's frightening truly so but here's the problem that date I think people are underestimating the seriousness of this political stunt that she's pulled first of all being funded by out of state interest you have no interest in our community which is very very disheartening were in at the crossroads of the hundred ninety four homicides over ninety percent of which are African American school being slaughtered in the streets they ought to sue her on the victims and the families because I mean this is this is this is just a crisis level the other serious problem is we have all the members of the of the St Louis metropolitan police department we this includes police officers association is the bargaining agent for all of the officers not the highest of white shirt but the line officers on the street these are the people that investigate and solve crimes and then they go to court and you know to convict criminals well the lawyer representing them in court in these criminal trials is now suing them and please log into so their lawyer has already impeach them before the trial even in you know I'm no every defense lawyer is going to come in and say well the secretary has said your entire organization everything you do is racist so this is the problem that kind of conflict she should be disqualified from every case well that could happen from a legal matter and then what yeah has huge repercussions and you imagine every defense attorney gonna be jumping on that immediately for pretty much any time they're called upon absolutely and the courts are going to have to get involved and say we'll Kian she sued the people he relies on to make these cases you know what we what what we can do is have our officers getting into civil and criminal trouble because of this pending lawsuit yeah Jane do Kerr joining us here and you're going on the record saying there is no secret society with monthly meeting secret handshakes things like that that go on there's no giant conspiracy between all of the offices against the circuit attorney it's either that or she may be incompetent it's it's what are the other I don't know which is the problem is she has determined that criticism is a racist conspiracy sure mmhm and that's a problem and that you know what this is the if you can't handle the criticism for your abysmal performance in office yell is the idea that you would use your racism as an excuse for your abysmal performance I mean it's it's it's hurting our community yeah and keep in mind too she's asking for damages she wants money in order I think yeah and where do you think that's coming from your taxpayer money and on top of that imagine if anyone that had something means said to them at some point in their life could petition the government through a lawsuit in order to say I am damages for that come on now all out now is what it is it's outrageous and you know she's doing in her official capacity as prosecutors can you do that no and that's a whole nother layer of legal on two she's using her office to get the images money for herself that called a crime the singer went to prison for that you don't get to use your office in order to get damages and money for yourself yeah what are the odds that a higher level maybe the Attorney General or the F. B. I. or someone else looks at this individual case well it's in federal court and you know I mean she's going to have to answer to the court she's going to have to answer the sad part is for example this poor taxpayer you should a taxpayer so now he's got to go out and hire a lawyer to get this nonsense dismissed I'm now he warned fair ma'am he saving the textile dollars money he actually did a favor for the system to prevent her from paying lawyers to give her advice about the Fifth Amendment some believable than usual capacity that's the whole reason why she's there she should know these things you know if this is just a lawyer beyond can drain you know what really bothers me too is and you see this all the time when it comes to national media that tries to come into a certain community the normally only give one side they don't like to dig deep into it and there's some sort of sensational headline that they can grab because their national audience legacy in it and then they come in and then all of a sudden it's Kim gardeners the biggest victim in the world and we're here screaming are you even listening to the people here try to be crazy when using those what I've got I've gotten told by you know California and I'm you know nothing about our community do you understand that over ninety percent of the of the hundred ninety four people murdered African American dad is a racist conspiracy these poor people up in north Saint Louis in all around this community are getting slaughtered in the street our children are getting slaughtered in the streets and there's nothing for crime victims yeah why is no one talking about the victims of crime yeah that's what I would argue if you were to talk to the people that have been victimized or their family members that may have been killed asked them if they believe justice was served in you know a lot of times the probably find out well they never took the time never talk to me maybe they didn't even find the person maybe the person was found in the got a slap on the wrist and I don't think any of those people are satisfied with the way things have been handled well an exuberant you Sonya who is the seven year old who was gunned down playing next to his house in the in the killer can fast yes he in fact Saddam and it's been I I used to I have a day count but it's been months and he's not been charged I mean we admitted killer of a seven year old child and they're like well we don't know if we believe the contraction we think it may be self defense well at the Democrat outrageous in the end you know and and I I does think about these children in in this is the thing not only are we dealing with eight eight high crime high violent crime in the city of Saint Louis the severity and just the depravity of it where they're murdering people in the back of pickup trucks going down Washington Avenue were having rolling gun battles on our highways I mean the the depravity of the crime I actually have a police officer report to me that he picked up a car dealer and now with a gun of course these people should not have guns and he said you know you can't arrest me we got the prosecutor on our side it's never been a better time to be a criminal in Saint Louis absolutely then in the community is in in in I spent eight hours with the board of aldermen this morning and today are talking about the crime plan and what we're gonna do about allocation of resources and the board of aldermen they they they said their constituents are sick of it I think we have got to get a handle on this and you know the same mostly saucers association has been working with the book but the black caucus in the board of aldermen has been working with the public safety committee and we've been working with everyone saying we not only do we need more officers and we're working on that we are working with the mayor on on competitive salaries while working on residency but we're also looking at getting more cops on the street and reallocating resources with in the department to get more people in the streets more cops out there and you know good things are going on right and she comes in and does this one other little kid that I wanted to remind the listeners you remember when the taxpayers paid fifty thousand dollars a contract with captain Ron Johnson who was with the highway patrol during Ferguson and he's actually means well I think he's a good man but he was hired by the secretary with taxpayer dollars to improve relations between circuit attorney's office and the police officer boy the only thing more we've been working with him when problems would arise we would go to captain Johnson and we say Hey we need this to look at it we were Startin to sort of develop saying well then this happens.

"This is the Larry O'Connor shell. Joining us right now as Bob Davis. Now, he's a former Exxon Mobil executive he wrote speeches for Rex Tillerson. Our former secretary stadiums got a brand new book gusher a novel of the Rockefeller oil empire. So now, Bob this sounds incident. I'm sorry. I haven't read it yet. I just got it like this week. This is you're going to like Larry. It sounds cool. It's a novel. But it's based on sort of those those the oil baron days, I guess for lack is. Yeah. It's the work that brings the very enigmatic John D Rockefeller to life in a novel. And of course, he was the world's richest man, he formed standard oil and the work of historical fiction that brings the reader right back to. Eighteen seventy very early gays discovery with your Pennsylvania. And just the period up and Scarborough of federal topping Beaumont, Texas, which was America's first gusher and helped fuel the energy needs of an agent, and these these were incredible times in this country. And I think of the great rock Hudson. Elizabeth Taylor James Dean movie giant, right, but movie, but but you know, this is a story that needs to be told because the oil industry gives such a bad name. But it is it is truly such a heraldic time for the great American spirit of exploration risk and incredible incredible benefit to our economy. Yes. And the interesting thing various Rockefeller built this industry from from scratch. And the book itself contains very accurately portraying profiles at Rockefeller, Henry Flagler who actually develop east coast of Florida from Saint Augustine all the wicked of a key west number of other real life characters. But inter I with that are some very memorable fictional characters. So it's kind of a mix in it. All it all works, very dramatic. But you're right. Extremely interesting times challenging times and the book we've through that whole period. The book is called gusher a novel of the Rockefeller oil empire in its written by Bob Davis. Who knows his stuff used to be an executive with Exxon Mobil and also wrote speeches for Rex Tillerson. So he knows oil. But he also is pretty good with words. It reminds me a little bit. How you're describing it as like ragtime L has great historical novel of turn of the twentieth century, which wove very real stories of Henry Ford, and and J P Morgan real people who existed at that time, but we'll them into fictional characters. And it's been compare of somebody early reviews on Amazon just came out on Monday. But it's van compared to Eric Larsen is. Gambling the White City. We're very much the same thing he'll take real world characters realized characters research, so they're genuine, and I think that that comes through with doctor and then creates a fictional characters. And yeah, so Marie Benedict with Carnegie's made and boardwalk empire. So it's it's the done before. But this is the first time as I say that. Yeah. That has really been brought to life in inner novel of that includes Rockfeller and other what did people not understand about the oil industry to me? I think it is a miracle that that that you do what you do and the incredible upfront cost that you have to lay out too. I mean, if you think about all of the research and all of the risk in the acquisition of mineral rights in acquisition of property machinery involved, and you start pumping this stuff, and it takes forever and then after the refining process. Finally, the fact that gas here in Maryland and DC areas only about two. Fifty to seventy a gallon deal a miracle. I don't know how you do that. Yeah. Well, it it is an incredible business. That's that's for sure and risky reward. They're interesting thing about the business is that it's probably wondering only businesses were competitors. We'll get together because he's chronic acts are multi multibillion dollar projects to give example, the price of drilling a well in on an offshore environment. Or in in a challenging environment can be upwards of seventy eighty a hundred million dollars, pardon me billion dollars. So they companies like Exxon Mobil and shell and BP. They actually partner on the project to hear the risk exposure. And that's one of the businesses where competitors. Actually, you know, it is an industry that people assume everyone has an opinion about it. But very few actually understand it or educated enough to form that opinion. And I think that your book at least a focusing on the origins of how we got here from there is going to go a long way of doing that and entertain people at the same time. Can't wait to read it Bob Davis. Thanks for joining us, sir. Thank you. Appreciate it. You bet. The book again is called gusher the novel of the Rockefeller oil empire. And yeah, you should learn about this this good way. To learn it through a novel that is based on fact based on real life people in real life events at the great entertaining way, said educate hours about it case, right? Typically, six thirty..
