But he did, I think, give very reasonable and sound. Responses to their questions. They didn't ask him. Ah thing about Russia Gate. They didn't ask him a thing about collusion, and when they did try to ask him questions. They interrupted him because they knew everything he said was going to go into record and they didn't want His answers. So all those months and months and months and months of we need William Barr Weenie, William Bar We need William Bar. And then now that this is all the sham that we know what it is. Wait.

Many didn't seem to have a problem with the requirement because most of us have been wearing masks since the pandemic began. One woman said that she wears a mask to protect herself and her family from the virus and encourages those who don't want to wear a mask to just stay home. And even though some customers feel they should have the choice of whether or not to wear the mask, they support businesses rights to employ imposed restrictions on customers. It's the same thing is no shirt, no service. Browsing through the deli section of one Edmond store. One customer said that people should have the right to choose whether to wear the mask. But business is also have the right to ask customers to cover their faces before coming inside. Yeah, if I walked into the Walmart stark naked they'd ask me to leave and they'd call the cops. Now, if you walk in without a mask, the last good to put one on, but I doubt they'll call the cops. By the way, Wal Mart made an announcement today that they will be closing their stores and Sam's clubs on Thanksgiving Day. This is a first For them.

"All RIGHT WE'RE BACK CHEERS MATES. Thank you so much for donating to the beer fund. I am sipping on some Nice Brew. Because of you. Thank you for subscribing. Thank you for telling a friend about our little garage show to thanks for your friends not to listen to and thank you to you captain and they and they thank you and thank you to our friends that listen all right. We might have might have had a few too many now. I love you man on October up right on October. Fifth Police headed out to the site. Where that photo was taken this accompanied by Aaron? They photo. Yeah and they're going to be searching this whole area and before too long. They identified a body any plastic bag in a ditch off the side of a wooded road. The remains were very decomposed but were wearing clothing. That was similar to what Taylor was wearing when she disappeared. Sure enough. The medical examiner soon identified the remains as Taylor beale based on dental records. One thing about this girl. That's helping out the police. There she goes out to our family's property. She doesn't know what she's GonNa find. They've they've find Taylor she that has thing about the relationship she had with this person. And how that possibly could have been her that'd be very traumatic experience. There are several theories as to why this area may have been chosen for the the dump site. The seem a little odd. Who knows what was going on in the mind of the person who placed her there so there. There's one theory that I do find this interesting. I don't think it has anything really to do with the case. But there's a thought that maybe Ben Fawley thought if he put her on errands family's property that maybe it would get confusing to investigators in Aaron. Could somehow be involved in Taylor's disappearance possibly we. We know he lies about everything. I think what likely happened is this is just unfortunately a place of popped into his mind when he thought of like we said earlier. Hey I got something. I don't want anybody to ever find and he thought this was a good place to put it well. They're going to go back with this information. This is basically now the cops have a loaded gun that they component him and he's going to start confessing to what he claims happened that night. Yeah and one thing that they will be equipped with when they go in to talk with. Fawley is they took some soil samples from the undercarriage of Taylor's vehicle and they were able to match those two soil samples taken from the area where the body was found so they are able to piece a lot of this together before they even talked to them. They where she was found. They have a general idea what happened to her being that she was either abducted or killed and then transported in her own vehicle out to that location and then we know the vehicle came back to the vcu campus area and was was placed there now or died in a manner that did not leave visible marks on her body so they were unable to determine the exact cause of death. There was no broken bones or obvious signs of death. Now Mind you. She rather decomposed at this time. Folly continued to deny that he had anything to do with this. But that's not going to last very long captain just like you pointed out because he will he will offer up some kind of confession well of sorts and this was against the recommendation of his attorney folly told investigators that on the night of September fifth. He and Taylor had driven out to a beach in the Mathews County area to Hook Up. He said he was very drunk and high at the time and was off his meds the two engaged in what he called rough sex and he said Taylor accidentally died according to him. The two had played a sex game and it was all Taylor's idea she wanted to try Roddick But backfired and when she died he panicked and dumped her body in that ravine although he tried to spin this off as some type of accident folly himself may have made mention of what he planned to do to Taylor in one journal entry by Skulls Sixty Seven and eight journal subtitled playing with fire. The trash of a crazy ex-con he wrote about his sexual conquests with partners referred to by their initials like an e. He also talked about someone with the initials. T and said that there was something he still wanted to try with her. This was before Taylor died. Taylor's mother was quick to dispute follies version of the events. Of course she says. Let's be clear. Ben Fawley murdered my daughter. She said in a news conference. His claim that it was accidental is just one more perversion of the truth and his changing web of allies that he claims that there they went out to this location. They're trying to hook up there in the back seat of the car that he was drunk in high in an office medication all that stuff they were trying to put a bag over her head during sex. That wasn't really working. 'cause she wanted a pass out this what he's claiming and so then. He took the bag off her head but then put it around her nose and mouth now once she stopped breathing. Here's a strange thing. As during his confession he doesn't dump the body that night doesn't he doesn't just go all. I got to get rid of her and take the car back. He claims that he comes back to Vcu with her body in the back seat and and that the cars parked there for a day or so then he drives back out to that. Same location than than than dumpster there But again this guy will lie about everything. Yeah and as you pointed out earlier. His story changes win. It needs to. He has an excuse. He has a story. He has an alibi until boom. You present them with facts with truthful evidence and facts that you know to be true and then he says well. Here's a different story for you. Bobby here's the thing. Though is he already has more and more charges. That are mounting against him. Yeah and what's difficult? Though for the Prosecution for the state captain is that we do have this while it does not seem likely it is a plausible defense of this was an accident and maybe he shouldn't be charged with murder. We also have the problem that we really have very little forensic evidence in this case at all So it's going to take a good amount of time. In fact it was not until January. Seventeenth of two thousand and six then a grand jury handed down an indictment of folly. This was for first degree murder. I would love. I would love to try this case. Once the Grand jury was told it was explained that the medical examiner could not have identified an exact cause of death because of the decomposition. Then we have an indictment that was amended to second degree murder. The death penalty obviously going to be off the table at this point now despite holes in their case prosecutors went full steam ahead preparing for a trial working with investigators. Trying build a circumstantial case to prove that Taylor was not the initiator of this so called sex game that she was not bondage or erotic fixation or really would not have consented to any of this crap and that that folly killed her and probably deliberately killed her. It was not an accident by any stretch of the imagination on his defense team saying well she was she wanted to try this because he had tons of pornography on his computer and showed her some different things and choose like. Aw like to try that yeah. That's what he claims but but it doesn't matter I mean the the idea that that Anybody female or male would be on trial for wanting to try something sexually sh. That's her right to that. Doesn't equal being murdered right? You know so. It doesn't matter how you slice. It doesn't matter if it was his idea or her idea. That does that should never equal murder. So what we have here. Captain is in August of two thousand six. The murder trial is about to begin. But what we get I man I so love this. We get a gift for the prosecution because folly opens his big mouth. That's right folly. Made the mistake of talking in his defense attorneys. Got Wind of this and a jailhouse conversation with an officer folly describing on set it up a little bit better because he is coming back to his cell. After after this There was a meeting And and basically this. This web allies that he's been casting. He claims that it's the ultimate chess. Move Right he says he's playing a chess game and really this story that he came up about Taylor's accidental. Death was really just that just a story designed to clear him to take the heat off of him. Explain away what happened. But it's not what actually happened and then we have a little bit more. Holy Okay because you you know this better than me. This is the part. That's kind of confused me because he makes a mission to This officer and then officer. Let's the defense team. No now they can't they can't represent that idea because they know it's a lie that right. No I think the thought here is. We have people that are going to testify that he was lying about the story right and and then we have this weird thing where he's writing letters from jail to a female friend. The prosecution gets a hold of these letters. They did not help follies case. I don't know exactly what was in these letters. But these were mentioned during this portion of the story. And what this leads to is by August ninth. We have folly consulting with his attorneys and they decide that folly should take an Alfred play for second degree murder and exchange for prosecutors dropping the child pornography charges out at the plea proceedings prosecutors and defense attorneys. Were able to present their cases to the judge whose job it is then to determine whether there was enough evidence to warrant folly taking such a plea the confession. His tapes of his confession or so-called confession were played in court and later transcripts were released to the media. More details about this confession came out and you went through quite a bit of that when you were telling us about what happened. One thing I've found weird was its sites that Taylor wanted to play a game that she called drunk monkey and again. It's it's almost. It seems a little silly to go through this confession when we know so much of it is just completely false and we can. We can say that based off of his plea off of his later plea where he accepts that he's going to be convicted of this. Yeah I mean and again I have some questions but I don't think it matters like what she alive when they went out to this location. I don't know did he. Did he bring did he? Actually bring the body back to bring Taylor back You know I don't think it matters. I think at the end of the day no matter what he states.

"You have pornography and then you have this more like this demotic pornography. Okay so this next bits going to the next ninety seconds might get a little difficult to listen to. But here's what I have in my notes. Okay so police said they discovered a massive quote a massive amount of extremely graphic child pornography featuring children as young as three and four years old being raped by some reports as many as seven computers loaded with pornography were confiscated from the apartment according to the Richmond Times dispatch senior assistant. Commonwealth's Attorney Mike Jag oils. Later told judge Kimberly O'Donnell that there were as many as thirty movie files discovered on computers. That were removed from follies apartment. Some depicting acts with minors as young as one. This is this just tough to even read minors young as one or two years old and others featuring individuals ten to fourteen years old folly of course maintain that the computers were not his as you pointed out. He says they belong to a former resident of the apartment. No one was buying this load crap that he was trying to shovel Robert. This just proves how this guy's story changes constantly. He's always has some excuse for things and so that's when you really know that. Most likely whatever happened to her was at the hands of this individual so like we said this results in his arrest and also results in a second more comprehensive search of his apartment while that. But here's what's Great. We can put him in for these charges and then because of these charges we can go back and look for more evidence we can build our case and know exactly where he is and hold him and he can't do anything to get rid of evidence in the process so the things that they were looking for in the second search many of the items that were listed on the search warrant included things that would belong to Taylor. You know her clothing her her jeans. Black Hoodie sneakers. Black Watch bracelets Saint Francis Necklace student. Id Nokia Cell Phone and car keys. All of that's listed on the war also listed. Were skateboards sometimes. You WanNa put a generic term out there so you can take any skateboard that you find burglary tools. This would probably go back to his previous convictions. There are also looking for knives hammers shovels and pry bars. And then I found this to be strangers. Always something strange listed on these search warrants on here we have the ever suspicious pepperidge farm cookie boxes but yeah I couldn't figure out I have no idea why this would be on the warrant. The cops were hungry. I don't know if they had reason to believe that she would have had one of these cookie boxes in her possession at the time that she went missing and maybe that then they can go. Okay is it might be coincidence. But it also might be a sign that she was here right later that night. I don't have a complete look. Incomplete list of what was found in the apartment. But here's what we do know was taken out of the house. Pursuant to the search warrants women's white underwear a laptop computer a Macintosh computer a digital camera sex toys including dildos and spiked bracelets a knife. Two bags of clothes from a garbage can outside of the house a beaded necklace with a cross from this was removed from the garbage as well. A bicycle chain necklace. A watch from the garbage can a thirty five millimeter camera. A box containing bones. He collected weird things like that where everybody has a right to have weird shit. Oh Yeah Yeah we we we. We all probably own some weird shit rolls of film. I mean we probably don't have a bunch of dildos lane around A black brawl a machete. Cigarette BUTTS A prescription bottle skateboards they did find skateboards yearbook a hatchet. A hammer a pry bar a thirty two caliber cartridge and a partridge in a pear tree. I mean it just goes on and on and on the one thing. That was rather interesting of note here captain. Police also removed a section from a box spring that was stained with some kind of Reddish Brown substance they did include and executed a warrant for follies hair and DNA samples. Not Found Taylor cell phone that they were looking for her college. Id Her car keys again. Anything linking Fawley Ben Fawley directly to Taylor's disappearance does not seem to have been found just on the child porn possession alone police had enough to charge folly with a felony. And as you said hold him while they continue to build a case against him regarding Taylor's disappearance and they also charged him with a possession of a firearm because remember he's a convicted felon. He's not legally permitted to be in possession of a gun but the their investigation takes pretty interesting. Turn as far as because you you collected all the stuff but but where do you go from that? I mean that none of this other than the child porn pornography. Can you charge him with or like you said the the gun possession charged so you can add that on top of things but well. They're going to go to the public for help okay. Because on October eleventh police announced that they were specifically interested in the sightings of the following items between the dates of September fifth and September seventeenth. They WANNA know. Had anybody seen a white Ford escort? That's remember that's the vehicle. Virginia License Plate J. P. C. Twenty eight forty eight and they asked the public to call in sightings of the vehicle and a description of whomever may have been driving the vehicle at the time. They wanted to know who had been driving. Taylor's car around Richmond. During that time that they can't figure out where it was they also wanted people to report any sightings of of Virginia personalized license plates G. R. N. E. R. T. age. This was a plate stolen from a vehicle around the time Taylor disappeared and police believed it might have been in follies possession and they also sought information about that. Ohio state license plate as well right. So what's interesting to me is while they need the public's help it seems like they have a general idea of what was going on. At the time he abducted he did something to Taylor and was moving her vehicle round during the time that it was unaccounted for and he may have been switching out the plates multiple times along the way right. Because if you know this girl's missing you you see work kind of car. She has. How many people saw that car looked at the license plates and went while? That's not her car. Yeah yeah it also came out around the same time? The media reported that folly used his credit card to buy gas in new Kent County between Mathews County and Richmond on the night. That Taylor disappeared. So this really kind of to me would suggest that his later claimed that he was attacked. There doesn't seem to be any time left for that to actually have taken place. It's the old jussie. Smollet jumped farce. We got going on there. Meanwhile Taylor's family lawyer cleaned out Taylor's dorm room taking all of her possessions back to her hometown of Vienna and they stayed at Taylor's family basically stated even if she is found alive she's not going to be returning to vcu at this time. There's too much going on here and 'cause at this point you have to believe that she's -ducted and so if you do find her alive. There's no way that you're GonNa want her parents for her to be around that facility to have any of those bad memories well. Things are looking very very bleak by this time and now they're really honing in on folly and he's locked up and they can start. They WanNa start going through his social circles. Now we're going to publicly asked the public for help but we're going to get into his social circles and ask these people for help and one of the people that they come across. Is this young woman named Aaron who was also a VC use student and somewhat of a friend or acquaintance of Taylor's an oddly kind of looks like she could be related to tailor definitely. Looks like Taylor's mother like there's a lot of similarities there and she's a little older than Taylor She's twenty three at the time. Apparently she dated Ben Fawley for some time. I guess they only dated for a couple of months before Aaron broke up with him and she. She probably didn't WanNa come forward because of such an embarrassment that she dated this Douche in the first place well I think she was the one that the charges some of his previous convictions stemmed from so well. He had a history of these girls after a while. Yeah but oddly he would. He would start dating them and because let me take pictures of you. You're so beautiful. And he would make these girls feel like they're the best thing in the world but then that became all well now. I'm jealous of everybody else and I just love you so much. I'm jealous of everybody else and then become aggressive almost like self sabotaging the relationship like well. And here's the thing to captain going on. Now we've seen a lot of these types of cases anytime. Detectives think that we have somebody who needs to hide something that they never ever want anyone to find they start asking the people that know them best. Okay is there anywhere that he liked to camp or go fishing or go hunting. You know outdoor activities. What does he do and where does he go? They start talking to Aaron. They start showing her picture after picture from his. Pho- photography webpage because they need her to identify some of these locations. Here's picture tell us where you think this area is? Yeah who take pictures of girls and things like that but would also take pictures of old rundown sheds and you know just fields in in random items and locations so one photo that caught her eye. You know she's looking at photo after photo. Finally she sees one and she's like Holy Moly. This might be something here. This is a photo of an old abandoned house with like a Tin Lean to attached to it. The House was oddly enough located on her family farm. Which was about ninety miles away from Richmond in Mathews County right and I think he. She took there at some point. Maybe they've been shot. Shot those photos together well and remember we talked about folly purchasing gas with his credit card right out that night now all of a sudden this photo of an old abandoned house ninety miles away out in the middle of nowhere seems very important for all of our sakes. We need to avoid crowds any way we can right now. But what if you need.

"Morning it's actually with another Hampton Roads perspective and this morning I'm here at Karen joiner from that Virginia peninsula food bank how are you today Keren I'm great and I'm very happy to be here thank you for coming in today so what exactly is your role with the fridge Anya peninsula food bank I'm the chief executive officer there okay and what kind of duties do you have what are your tasks well I'm overall responsible for all the operations and everything that happens at the food bank so okay I guess everything falls on my shoulders what is the mission of the Virginia peninsula food bank well most people just think we give out food but our mission statement is a little more complicated than that our technical mission statement is to distribute food in an efficient manner through collaborative efforts that minimize hunger promote nutrition and encourage self reliance through education and all of our programs can point directly back to those different phrases within our mission statement how long have you been in existence we've been in existence for thirty two years since nineteen eighty six now and now I know it's there for junior peninsula food bank so what areas do you serve specifically we serve the cities and counties of Hampton Newport news poco St Gloucester Mathews county James city county York County the city of Williamsburg and Surry county and you are the people that you serve well it could be anybody I think most people have an image in their heads about who are hungry or who needs food in an emergency situation but really everybody goes through a season of their lives when they need a little help and so there are all kinds of faces of hunger and it's not just the unemployed we serve children families veterans and the working poor people who are living paycheck to paycheck and and they just don't have enough to pay off all their bills and also buy food and a lot of seniors as well what are some of the programs that you operate to get food out into the community for these people well we have many programs our biggest program is our agency distribution program about eighty percent of all the food that goes out through the food bank goes out through our partner agencies these are community based organizations such as church food pantries okay soup kitchens domestic abuse shelters homeless shelters organizations that want to do good in their community in their neighborhood and we work with about a hundred and fifty of those type of organizations for us most of them are church food pantries but there are some of those other types sprinkled in and we could not get the food out all the way up and across the greater Virginia peninsula without the help of our partner agencies so about eighty percent of the food goes out that way but we operate several other important programs for instance when we don't have a partner agency in a particular area or when our partner agencies cannot keep up with the demand we send truck loads of food out to specific areas in our community and we call it our mobile pantry program it's a direct program of the food bank so it's our truck going out we set up tables we use volunteers we unload the truck and then the volunteers helped distribute food directly from the food bank truck and we do that twenty eight times a month in areas places such as Williamsburg house of mercy or Hampton Baptist church the VA Medical Center in Hampton and just various places where either our partner agencies can't keep up with demand or we need to do more in those areas over in Surrey for instance co St so those are two of our biggest programs but we also operate to child nutrition program one a lot of people might be familiar with but they might not know that it it runs through the Virginia pencil food bank that is the backpack program for kids over the weekends there are a lot of children in our community that often go home and don't eat well at least not nutritionally or not at all because during the week when they're in school they're getting their free or reduced price breakfast and lunch and so over the weekend there's just not the same quality or quantity of food so we operate a program where we distribute bags of nutritionally balanced food it's canned goods so that is non perishable and now we distribute fifteen hundred of those back bags every week during the school year and six hundred during that per week during the summer and that so that they do have food over the weekend when they're not in our other child nutrition program is called kids cafe and that's where children go to an after school program so they're in a safe environment they're getting help with their homework and we provide the hot nutritionally balanced meals for them to eat while they're there we do this because we operate a culinary training program at our food bank it's a rare program for food banks is only about twenty six of these programs operating around the country in food banks and there's two hundred food banks around the country and we invite economically disadvantaged adults to apply to come into this program and it's not just the cooking class it's totally not that it's it's a way for them to improve their well being and become gainfully employed by the end in the morning there in our commercial kitchen at the food bank preparing the meals for the kids cafe program and in the afternoon they go into a classroom setting where they're learning life skills center the volunteers who has like leadership time management conflict resolution resume writing interviewing skills things like that okay and then throughout the twelve week program they're learning food safety because that very very important at food bank we can't afford for somebody to get sick from some of the any of the food that we distribute so at the end of the twelve week program when they graduate we help them find a job and we hope that then they're going to be self sustaining so this is our way of not giving a hand out like giving a hand up we're quite proud of that program and we operate a few smaller programs as well but kids cafe backpack culinary training program agency distribution program and our mobile pantry are our biggest programs now with all of these programs how much would you think you distribute annually well last year we distributed over twelve million pounds of food that seem mobile at about ten point one million meals however because we lost our third biggest donor wind farm fresh clothes we're having to pull back this year right now our shelves are pretty empty the shelves where our partner agencies come to get food to take back into the community they're pretty bare right now and we've had to pull back and in our strategic planning for this year rather than growing like we always have we are only for casting that we're gonna be able to distribute about nine point seven million meals compared to ten point one last year it's just it's tough to find another food or get enough money to purchase the million it was a million pounds of food that farm fresh was donating to us how many people do you serve annually the statistics say that there are about seventy three thousand individuals all on the crater Virginia peninsula that our food and secure which means they don't know where their next meal is coming from but those people are what I consider chronically food and secure they are gonna always need a little bit of help there's another seventy or eighty thousand people that we serve that are what I call episodically food in secure and that means that they just need a little help every now and then as the stands you ride like maybe they had their car break down and they didn't have any savings or they had a medical bill that they weren't prepared for a lot of people are working but they don't have any savings and they're just living paycheck to paycheck so are the last to to sticks that we had overall said that we served over a hundred fifty thousand and I don't feel based on what I've seen in the last couple years that that number has gone down at all where do you get your food most of our food comes through the generosity of our retail donors okay food lion is our top donor there so many locations of food lion and every location donates to us Walmart and Sam's club is our number two don't you still have some big partners that I'll ask I mean we have to bring in that twelve last year twelve million pounds of food some of which we had to purchase because we don't get enough of it but Walmart and Sam's number two farm fresh was number three but now Smithfield foods is number three because they were number four yeah and then almost every grocery store chain is a very good the owner of the Virginia pencil food bank Kroger is a very supportive donor they only had one location up until this summer and I think now they're popping up right this morning is their grand opening of I think their fourth location for and they converted three farm fresh as yeah the one in ten year I live okay yeah I know you taking donations for food but what about money can people donate money instead of food absolutely as a matter of fact we can do more with monetary donations than we can by having somebody you know calming give us a bag of food we love all our donors we love anybody who wants to give us a bag of food but for a dollar or we can generally get the equivalent of about eight dollars worth of food because we have a lot of buying power we utilize volunteer labor so we don't have a lot of staffing costs or we're able to keep those down we get a lot of donations in often will get truckloads of donations but all we have to do is pay for the freight so that's the way we're able to stretch a dollar so somebody gives us a dollar we may be able to distribute as much as for meals for that dollar so money goes a long way when it comes to the Virginia peninsula food bank now the economy is good right now so why would you say there is a need for food assistance well the economy is looking very good but in general the people that we serve haven't been touched by the the good economy there at the lower end of the economic charts and let's say and so all the great ways that the economy have has improved doesn't necessarily reach them these are individuals who are living paycheck to paycheck for more they're seniors who were making decisions between paying for their medicine org buying food so it's not the people who are getting the tax breaks and and all the wonderful parts of the of the booming economy a lot of them again are working but they're making minimum wage or they're not making enough to make ends meet after they pay their rent and things like that now a lot of people assume that the holiday season is the busiest time for food distribution is that correct we do distribute allot more food in November than most months because everybody thinks of the heating Seattle Allah the eating season extra okay so Turkey yeah get distributed and people want to have a nice meal with their family and friends so a lot of food does go out in November and to a lesser extent December but when you think about it people are hungry all year round because and not just November December exactly you and I go grocery shopping you know maybe as much as every week and people have to eat all year round and one of the most difficult parts is during the summer when the kids are out of school and sometimes grocery bills double or triple if you have teenagers yeah so the summertime is really pretty difficult for us at the food bank and and we see how the inventory of food starts going down and down and down and down when we go through the summer because they're such a great need and fewer people are doing food drives for us at that time it's great to give during the holiday season and what other say you guys think about us during spring and summer it's what exactly so so right now we're at our lowest point in inventory I mean that means we we don't have any food on our agency shopping floor because the food that we have had to sustain us through the summer and into the fall and now we hope that it's gonna be going back up and then over the next six weeks maybe two months hopefully world will get enough that will be able to sustain another couple of months so there's another need to fill up our warehouse do you guys receive funding from the government the only funding we receive from the government is a reimbursement for those kids cafe meals that we prepare we participate in a program called the child an adult food program see a C. F. P. if anybody's familiar with that during the school year so those meals are reimbursed and then during the summer we participate in the summer feeding program also very similar to that so we get reimbursed for those meals but the only other government funding that we receive is the city of Newport news and the city of Hampton and a little bit from James city county as far as government grants they get a little money each year where the faces of hunger that you Sir if you don't know who the faces of.

"The United States you'd spend two hundred dollars for one of them me as a state could so vermont tried to sort of head towards this and so two Colorado and they're both Vermont in particular is only only half a million people. Virginia was nine million people. I think is a large enough market to say could take on contracting and there's a couple of different ways to do it. I'm not not attached to any of them that I'd like to see the state negotiate the prices. I'd like the patients to be public. unpublished and you should pay the same price in any pharmacy pharmacy and we can do it by taking you know the state can do it by taking over a couple of different places or simply by straight regulation but if if a few of the larger wealthier states did it I think we could do I think we could move the feds along on this and then that might provide some political impetus to rain and other healthcare costs. Let me tell you mentioned that yeah definitely you. You mentioned that the district is very read. it has the incumbent with actually not challenged challenged by Democrat in two thousand thirteen and then ran unopposed entirely in two thousand fifteen and then one by about sixty five percent of the vote twenty seventeen good. Can you tell us a little a bit about sort of your path to victory like how you see yourself being able to win in general so one-third of people don't vote and the the theory if there is a path to victory it involves mobilizing people who haven't voted because there hasn't been a choice and so they haven't seen the reason we're doing voter. Were one of the things people Tommy when they don't vote. Is that why they don't vote as they don't know who to vote for so so we're GonNa do voter guides on the website for each of the counties I'm collecting by is by ozone. All the local candidates trying to figure out who to vote for in my local camp race. Is You know I I have met the man running who represents me on the Board of supervisors and I know nothing about it. It's hard to find out anything and I actually I've. I've been asked to consider what my I'm wandering but I'll come back to the point my I don't actually one would be about requiring certain corporations to provide day of the state for planning purposes and the other one would be about voting and part of that would be voter guides. They do them in California and they're mailed to everybody's house. That has your local candidates BIOS in it it has they. They do a lot of ballot initiatives out there that we don't do well. We could legislate this. It doesn't have to be a bunch of plucky volunteers. The Path to victory is we've sending postcards cards to every single person in the district who is not whose registered to vote who has not voted more than once in the past penalties and they're being handwritten by Yvonne Tears after this election. I that's a project. I'm willing to keep working on you. Know Win or lose. Increasing voter voter turnout in my district is using his passion project and I've committed to running a second time in two thousand twenty one because candidates have the greatest chances victory in their second life. No that's very interesting. 'cause they're their biggest chance to win in. Yeah I like it. I certainly read it somewhere at some point. I hope it turns out to be accurate. That's awesome so when issue that you talk about on your website a lot is education Kentucky about education in Virginia and sort of what the house of delegates can do to prevent so I grew up in Maine and if the other state government I'm I'm very familiar. main has four fifths of the land mass of Virginia and Has Sixteen Accountants Virginia has one hundred thirty six county which has a hundred and thirty six school systems and a hundred and thirty six sheriffs and one one hundred thirty six commonwealth attorneys There are eight thousand people in Mathews County. Why do they need a whole school district. In coming off attorney and Sheriff Virginia also it was in the thirty s with how they pay teachers so when you rank teacher pay Virginia comes in down in the mid thirties again with the ninth richest state that shouldn't be there's no path to multiply their income solar t. a teacher starting salary is in the thirties in Virginia and there's no way for them to get to what's considered a sort of eighty thousand seventy five to eighty thousand is the level at which people stop feeling like they need more money money and happiness money does buy happiness up until about that point and the fact is that we're not paying teachers that much and I have a problem uh-huh so paying teachers better but also treating them like professionals one of the things that seems to stand up as you go and look through all this studies is on education. Is it allowing principals more autonomous. We have these standardized tests in Virginia the Sol's and they were intended to be a sort of a faithful test like they would give them in as long as everybody passed. The district is doing okay but it's turned into this weird set a culture where everybody teaches to the test and they're not particularly due to leave them vicious and so. I feel like education in Virginia has been dumbed down by this so I would get rid of those just straight off I would raise teacher pay I would I would legislate smaller classes because one of the things that seems to be that smaller smaller. Fox's can help compensate for edgy free disparities of backgrounds coming into education so across the thirteen to seventeen kids kids will do better even if they're poor and have less resources outside of school and how we fund so I'm not sure why the funding schools based on local property taxes like historical but why do we do when we go back to Matthews eight thousand the people you know they're funding the funding schools off thousand people's taxes and is that I would shift and I have a real issue and I I. I am absolutely opposed to Public Thatcher's. I have a real I think public education is the foundation of a democratic country and Virginia at the K. through twelve level too many families off out rather than working at improving their school system so can you Kaku little bit about I know mentioned carrying education but are there any other issues that are really coming up as you're talking to voters in district. Do many of them surprised the band. Information infrastructure is huge. One of the things that happens in Virginia is Virginia loves public private partnerships and and what it seems to be a reason for the Commonwealth to give my tax money to a private company to try to bribe them into doing business. Somebody is working on a list of all the incentives money that Virginia has paid out over the past twenty thirty years and whether or not they incentives that they gave they've actually came into something that and it doesn't seem should work and so the Internet is probably already this pointing. We probably should just accepted by one of my first bills would be requiring telecom providers to provide service estate to the state and local governments because the county. Gloucester wants to figure out where there with Internet and they can't because with two Internet Internet companies that provide service your won't tell they won't tell them who they provide. The other thing is that the the the state has been handing out these grants to various local local monopolies to expand their coverage and it's just expensive a little bit and it still cost too much and everybody complains about it whereas if you put in I'm unclear on whether states are allowed to do this or whether there's a central offer hitting and I'm trying to find out but if you can the fire that ball Internet companies allow access to their network related to the net neutrality lot the federal level at allowing competition not allowing not allowing one company to own too many layers of the market so the phoning the content funding the Clintons that it runs on owning the servers that make it function you know when one company owns all of that it becomes impossible for another mother smaller businesses to get in and it becomes on out of I would like us to look at the Internet in terms of not just in terms of act providing services to people and how much consumers pay but lowering the cost of entry in his response should be thirty or forty. ISP Internet service provider fighter by service pettit rates and instead. There's one or two what would you say your part running for delegate. What would you say is the you know the best part it's it's people's houses wondering and wandering down wondering down dirt roads and finding just amazing gardens and and and some there's a woman in Gloucester who has put done mosaics on the her house is listed up because of of the recent flooding and she's done mosaics on the pillars under the office of family down the other way that House House topiary elephants like they cut their pushes to look like allison. I mean these are just random. People in Virginia uh-huh and it's so much fun and everybody awesome I've been nicest dog and you drive up and there's this snoop dogg outside and he's got a collar on and he's not on a chain and you can tell the people who left their vote in the house and I always start slow and then I opened the door and I don't get out of the car right away and ninety percent of the time. They pray to just lay their heads up. Oh Yeah Yeah and I meet interesting people you know and most people were really sweet and and even sometimes you know when you wander into looking household by mistake and they'll be like you know. I'm sorry we're not gonNa vote for you but I'm so proud of you for writing it might it is and and I disagree with my opponent about about politics that he's not he's a neighbor you know he's part of my community pharmacist time position of men in three years and I'm really proud of us at how clean we kept off. Ah We're not there's not fash. TACO he's a Republican and he believes in smaller government and he believed the primacy is of corporations and I think that that's not accurate. I think that's not run things. I think that markets are always regulated so some extent and markets are always regulated to benefit someone in the United States was shifted to regulate them to benefit preparations and I'd like to Commute awesome and is there anything else you wanted to talk about that..

"I don't much care for it. But you know, what it could be worse. I suppose. And I'm getting choice. So welcome aboard. Thanks for being part of the program the for and we got a whole bunch of things and I'm trying to get through. But one of them is just jumping out for for discussion and thought and looking at I guess, the current state of of things with regard to the Virginia governor and his his behavior thirty six years ago and his behavior now thirty four years ago, I guess and his behavior now. And the guy is I think an enigma because there are so many inconsistencies about him. So I I wanna get into his background just a little bit and his his life. What he has done what he has done personally, academically, professionally and politically, and then I have a poll question for you. At the conclusion of that he was born and raised in rural Virginia. And grew up on a farm where the tended the the farmer this with his brother and family. He graduated from high school with the as the salutatorian and was voted most likely to succeed. He was a member of his school's basketball and baseball teams. He graduated from the Virginia Military institute in nineteen Eighty-one where he served as president of the honor court and received a bachelor's degree in biology, then went onto eastern Virginia medical school earning. His medical doctorate in nineteen Eighty-four from eighty four to eighty two he served in the United States army as a medical officer during his army service. He completed a pediatric residency at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, followed by a child neurology fellowship at Walter Reed. Medical center in Washington DC and Johns Hopkins hospital during operation Desert Storm he treated evacuated and evacuated casualties at the regional medical center in Germany. He left the United States army in nineteen Ninety-two at the rank of major having completed eight years of service since one thousand nine hundred ninety two he he has been a pediatric neurologist at children's hospital of the king's daughters and Norfolk Virginia. Let's talk about the guys at accomplished guy. And I think that academic pedigree and the status of being being the salutatorian and voted most likely to succeed. Frankly, don't comport with the behavior we've seen out of him recently or perhaps while he was in medical school. So prior to entering politics. Northam disclosed that he voted for George W Bush in the two thousand and two thousand four presidential elections. That was a fact that opponents raised and later democratic primaries north says he was a was a political at the time and regretted those votes saying, and I quote, politically there was no question. I was under informed. He I ran for the Senate the state Senate in two thousand seven the Virginia's sixth Senate district, which includes eastern shore Virginia Mathews county on the middle peninsula and parts of the cities of Norfolk and Virginia Beach. He was unopposed for the democratic nomination. And on November six two thousand seven he defeated Nick Aurora's two-term Republican incumbent seventeen thousand three hundred seven votes to fourteen thousand four hundred ninety nine votes. He was then re elected in November of two thousand eleven defeating bend, Loyola junior defence contractor little wider margin sixteen thousand. Plus two twelve thousand plus votes. One of north homes. I major activities as a state legislator was to lead an effort to pass a ban on smoking in restaurants in Virginia. The the Bill initially failed. The first time I go round, but it passed the next year, and it was signed into law by governor Tim Kaine and two thousand nine them a self-described conservative on fiscal issues and liberal on social issues was the subject of an attempt by state Republicans to get him to switch parties. This course of action if successful would have given Republicans control of the Senate, but after news of the imminent, switch broke on Twitter. Democrats held a closed-door meeting and Northam reiterated that he was not leaving the party. He later said, I guess it's nice to be one of it. I'm a democrat. And that's where I'm staying. He then ran for Lieutenant governor in the two thousand thirteen elect and he competed against the US chief technology officer Chopra for the democratic nomination on June eleven two thousand thirteen he won the Democratic Party nomination over Chopra with fifty four percent of the. Vote to Topaz Forty-six percent advanced the has the time he was elected as Virginia's fortieth Lieutenant governor over Republican e w Jackson by a ten percent margin. Receiving fifty five percent of the vote to Jackson's forty five. North was the first democrat says Tim Caine in two thousand one to be elected Lieutenant governor of Georgia. I'm sorry Virginia, the two thousand seventeen gubernatorial election. This is kind of interesting in February of two thousand fifteen just over a year into his term as Lieutenant governor. He confirmed his interest in running for governor Virginia in two thousand seventeen and made those intentions official knows an on November seventeen two thousand fifteen the an Email to supporters he faced former congressman and the Democratic Party for a runoff and ultimately. Prevailed? He was often described as a proxy battle between the Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party represented by a person by the name of pareo and the Hillary Clinton wing represented by northern. Himself on June thirteenth two thousand seventeen. He was he won the democratic nomination with fifty six percent of the vote, and he faced Republican nominee, Ed Gillespie, and the general election that data election got rather heated and during the campaign, Mr. Gillespie as well as President Trump accused him of being responsible for the increase activities, the MS thirteen gangs and of being in favour of sanctuary cities that lead dangerous illegal immigrants back on the streets. There is a little bit of problem and Mr. Gillespie's climb because there are no sanctuary cities. There were not then in Virginia there. None still today Gillespie and the president said that the north amid been the deciding vote to stop a Republican Bill in the state Senate, which would have banned sanctuary cities, and that this contributed to a surgeon MS thirteen violence, a notion that was not really truly supported by the facts. However, he did not want to take a proactive course of action. To address to prohibit a sanctuary cities. However, he did say that he would he would fight against it. If it were to happen, or there was a specific effort for any city to go in that direction. Just a month or so after that the Latino victory fund which was supporting his campaign released an ad in which a pickup truck adorned with Gillespie bumper sticker a quote don't tread on the end, quote license plate and confederate flag chases down minority. Children and corners them in an alley. One of the children and the ad then wakes up revealing the scene to have been a nightmare. Although north and his campaign were not involved with the ad. He initially defended it he defended that ad. I don't know if you've seen it. But I remember seeing it, and it was absolutely reprehensible is terrible. He defended it saying these ads have promoted fearmongering, hatred, bigotry and racial divisiveness. And adding I mean, it's an upset a lot of communities and they have a right to express their views as well. Ultimately that ad was pulled the following day hours after the terrorist attack in New York City in which a man killed several people by running them down with a pickup truck. So that was not his ad, but he did defend it. And it's ironic that there was an exploitation of I think frankly, unsubstantiated non existent racism on the part of Ed Gillespie. That that actually put north position where he was able to accomplish victory to be elected governor of the state of Virginia. So. Of course, we all know about the yearbook photo that has come out now and some of the behavior associated with that. Specifically is he I acknowledged that. He was either the person in that he was in fact, affirmatively either the person who appeared in black face in that photograph or the person and the KKK hood and sheet, so he acknowledged having done that and it's on his yearbook page. And then over the weekend. He recanted and said that wasn't him. Well, if he thought it was him that pretty much tells you that he did it or believe he did it back in the nineteen Eighty-four timeframe. And I think a lot of sins and indiscretions and bad judgment bad behavior of that timeframe thirty plus years ago. Can be forgiven. If there's an explanation, and there's context that shows that there was no righteous hatred or or racist ideology and play foolish foolish foolish thing to do. And no wise person would engage, but I think there's an opportunity to be forgiven. If a person explains what took place in shows legitimate remorse for having done. So but to get caught up in the lie, and it's got to be alive. This juncture there. There's no doubt. He he said it was him. Anyway, it was it was either either one of those characters either or. But now he denies that. How can that be? And then of course, he has in recent weeks talked about the plan with regard to extending abortion rights access to abortion to the full term of a pregnancy and beyond because he very calmly talks about a procedure in which a child is born. So it's no longer an infant. I no longer a fetus this child is born outside the mother's womb. Alive. And you consult with parents make the make the newborn comfortable, and then take what course of action they decide they wanna take. I think that's a that's a tough one. And that is not getting the attention that I would expect it to get frankly. However, this other behavior. Does get the attention. So how do you comport the the apparent divergence and this guy's life? He seems to show. Rather astute intellect at some time in a field that many many many people would would recognize him believed to be challenging even for a gifted person. And then he actually went on beyond that and finished a a specialty license certificate in a in a more complex field of medicine, and he had a great military run. And he was perceived by his high school classmates to be the most likely to succeed. Is that the guy you've seen lately? So the by poll question today is do you think he should resign? Simple question there. Also when.

I would advise you not to do that your work, by the way, they have slutty Sesame Street, costumes, the F slutty big words sledding. The problem is with the people who think they've got the body to pull that off for the face to pull that off. And they really don't. Yeah. And then you don't want to be rude and tell them that's your thing. You're you're not gonna pull off slutty you gonna pull off slobby. But you're not going to pull off slutty regarding workplace. It's been more than a good five or six years and somebody's tried to sex it up here at work for the Halloween. Did people do that six years ago? Yeah. Can you? Tell me what it was. Or would that person? Remember, there's been cat costumes have been random like I type. Naughty, nurse type costumes, nothing very creative. Yeah. So sexy has been tried here at the office. But it's been a while. Yeah. I mean, you why would you do that in the workplace though? I mean, you're setting yourself up for a story that will live like you're saying it's five or six years ago, and the person may not even be working at the radio station anymore, and here we are talking about it. I mean, people will remember that. Yeah. Setting yourself up for a visit Ataur. Possibly an unfriendly interaction with a customer. Yeah. And and ultimately, you can be fired for it. So I just don't understand why people would do that. I remember in my twenties. And I was at the TV station. Then there was a big costume party downtown on grey street. And I at that time I worked out like two times a day right after the show and then go back to the Jim at night. And I look good back. Then it's not it's not like now.

Hey, I got lots of attention. It was great. But the problem was unlike tonight, it was twenty degrees. So I had the flu for the next week. I think it was worth it. Because I got a lot of good attention. When you're in your twenties, you you enlarge part base your self worth that kind of a tender. So I look back. I'm here. I am laughing about it twenty some years later. I it was exciting to get all that attention. But man, I paid for it because right six sick sick. And it's not just slutty stuff too. It's also you don't wanna do scary stuff. Cussing ain't gonna freak out again. It's gross. Nobody wants to look at that all day long. So what can you do? Let's just think generically you could do Shrek. Maybe you could do a character. Just not sexy slutty. It's superhero type thing generic witch pointy hat in a wig fake watering. He and you're done. Yeah. That's probably also stay away from the the the not so PC, costumes, the inappropriate, costumes. Well, everything's inappropriate down. Seriously, kind of showed up with some Barreiro and a little something right out of my closet that I actually bought when I was vacationing in Mexico or studying the temples in Mexico. I'd probably be sent HR over it. I will tell you now that there was one of our afternoon hosts this was a while ago. So I'm going to drop a name. And if you do if somebody who's a sleuth wants to do some internet search, and they can figure out who was the who the afternoon host is I'm speaking of a you are collar student was murdered. And the guy was caught in early October looked kind of like a ninety s garage grunge band reject with the soul patch. The stringy. Black hair killer looked like yeah. Yeah. Okay. And he had flannel and all this and he had buried the student at a farm in Mathews county. She wasn't found for months. I think I remember this. So the afternoon host showed up wearing flannel shirt, black shirt, stringy, black wig, black soul. Patch on his face with a skeleton on his back. No. I laugh uproariously because I like really weird inappropriate humor. But I don't think it went over very well. Elsewhere in the building. Yeah. Don't do that at work today. Yeah.

"Chairman. Thank you. We go to Norma Torres of California. Thank you. Mr. Chairman. I do have a couple of questions that I that. I hope both of you. Well comment on and I'm sorry to to be jumping continents. Mr billingsley. I'm very concerned about the current situation in water Malla, as you may already know the president of water Malla, president Morales has been working with a group of corrupt politicians to undermine the fight against corruption there, specifically the work of c sag I worry that if we don't do more to deter this backsliding of the rule of law. Water Malla could break down into chaos, and we could see the real crisis or even bigger crisis at our southern border. So my question is what is the role of Sam? Sanctions in our policy towards water Malla in what kind of sanctions would be most effective in making clear that the US will not stand idly while watermelon president and his cronies allows years the progress to be turned back utilizing our own equipment. That was gifted to them. So congresswoman you've put your finger on a really crucial issue. Ultimately, the department of state in responsible for CCA again and the reformation process there, but we're watching the situation very closely. The tools we have would include among other things if we if we identify Nanteuil institution that's being used a launder funds. And it's touching the US system than the various provisions of the Patriot Act available to us to go after. We do expect and demand that Guatemala implementing money laundering regimes reforms, and then in the event that we see in the document and working with the prosecutor can document corruption actions, the global Magnitsky act in particular is is the tool that we use. To to impose consequences on people for those kinds of actions. I certainly hope that your office is closely watching the actions. Very alarm at what is going on right now with the army mobilizing within the capital. I think. Thank you congresswoman, we are very concerned about what is going on in Guatemala, and we are looking at C sake. The US supports a reform see sake, we wanna see more transparency oversight and accountability. It's an institution. It's a it's an entity that should transfer more of its capacity back to the institutions, but we do share your concerns, and we are monitoring the situation closely. And that sure what you mean by transparency, although I do agree that more of their work after ten years should should have been already transfer to the watermelon institutions. However, I do want to point to you. And I'm sure you already know I don't have to educate you on. This is that they the watermelon. Congress has not been able to pass laws to address their own issues of corruption and transparency so how. How do we unlike ground? Do we stand to say transfer the power of authority to an institution that has shown that they are willing to be on the record to find themselves or to refuse to allow themselves to be put before a court to investigate their own crimes. When you raise a very good point. And that's exactly what we're looking at. We do wanna find ways to increase the oversight and accountability for the entire situation at please don't miss that. Mark. I think. A lot of times. We've done a great job. But sometimes we have it's like head in the sand. And when we don't send a very very clear message, then we end up with people coming to their own understanding on things that we do not want to empower the drug cartels, and we don't want to empower what is happening there now. So I want to just be very clear with both of you that if we don't do anything. Now, if we continue to stand idle and allow them to to to move forward with their effort of intimidating reporters of intimidating human rights, people there activists. Then we are responsible for what ends up happening there, and we will continue to be responsible for the number of children that are being held in ice cages in our southern border. And that is what we need that is the bigger picture that we can't lose sight of. And this chairman I've ran out of time. So thank you congresswoman tourists. Thank you. And again, we think our panel and the committee stands journ, we'll see everyone at twelve thirty four our markup. Alive. House foreign affairs committee hearing on oversight of US sanctions policy was meniscus.

Again, leads back that to begin at about twelve thirty until then will listen to some of this morning's Washington journal as we spoke about some preparations in a couple of states for hurricane Florence. Representative rob Wittman he serves on the armed services and natural resources committee, the Republican of Virginia. Good morning. Good morning. Pedro could you talk about the areas of the Commonwealth, particularly were you serve and how they might be affected by Florence. Absolutely. Where the governor has done an evacuation. What's called Zona? Those are the very low lying areas. So places like Mathews county and precaution. There's a mandatory evacuation those are areas most likely to be affected by storm surge and even by heavy amounts of rain. So that has been put in place by the governor, local emergency services coordinators are monitoring those areas to make sure that citizens know what they can and cannot expect. If wins over forty miles an hour. There will not be first responders available to go to those areas. So all those all those issues are taking care of with those those local governments the second area is with our military. So they're naval station. Norfolk ships have been. Sentece? So the two aircraft carrier the George H W Bush, and the ABRAHAM LINCOLN had been sent Lucy as long as well as fourteen other surface ships, and those are the dishes. There are fifteen ships that are there at the shipyards that are being maintained. So those are being secured. Rear Admiral rock, who's the navy commander for the mid Atlantic has also set conditions for several ships that are there that can't go to see those that are under maintenance. So those are cruisers and destroyers, and there aren't a what's called heavy mooring, which means they're disconnected from the pier they're anchored. They're disconnected from shore power because there's a likelihood that the water will come over the peers, their sailors are on board and those ships are running under their own power. The coast guard is also designated for four ports not in our area. But in North Carolina and maybe later for Virginia. What's called conditions Zulu, which means ships cannot leave or come into these into these harbor, so those those main ports have been closed there in the Carolinas. So we see as the storm approaches more and more things being done to to safeguard the ships that are there and shipping traffic that goes back and forth. So those efforts have been put into place, and and also other. Military bases around is you know, aircraft have been moved out. So whether it's cherry point, whether it's camping journey that was places. Those aircraft have been moved out also their Camp Lejeune Marine Corps. Families have been told that they can stay on base. But they've also opened up shelters there.
