Grapes for Change
"History this week. September sixteenth nineteen sixty five I'm Sally Helm. The word had gone out through local deejays on Spanish language radio and through notices in the newspaper of the National Farmworkers Association. On Mexican Independence Day at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. In Delano California. There's GonNa be a big meeting. Something important to discuss. So five hundred farmworkers and families have shown up. There sitting in pews and on balconies waiting to hear whatever there is to hear. Everyone knows that tensions are brewing in California's Central Valley about a week earlier of Filipino farm workers walked off the job. There led by a man named Larry IT Leong and they're protesting bad working conditions and low wages. There are a lot of Filipino American farm workers in Delano and the surrounding towns, but the majority of workers are Mexican and Mexican American. So if the strike is really gonNa work, these groups need to come together. And the striking Filipino workers have asked for support. They've come to the national farmworkers association. A group of mostly Mexican American workers led by Dolores, Huerta and Cesar Chavez. Chavez later said quote. Was Oh God, we're not ready for a strike. There was only about one hundred dollars in the bank to support striking workers, where to and Chavez, and other leaders Gilbert Padilla they've been organizing and preparing, but they thought they had more time. Now they have to make a decision and. quickly. So on September sixteenth. In Our Lady of Guadalupe. Church, they put it to a vote and the workers decide unanimously to strike. With that, a new phase begins in what will become a five year struggle on the farms where much of America's produce is grown. And, that struggle will reach far beyond the farms, two grocery stores in New York City and shipyards in London, and even the battlefront of the war in Vietnam. Today, how did a small group of activists organize a strike? And then expand that strike to a national boycott of grapes. And what can their work teach us about how to build a successful multi-ethnic movement? Thank you to homedepot dot com for supporting this episode of history this week, our producer Julie explored their collections of home decor and will tell us about her homedepot dot com purchases later on. So stick around. On September eleventh to won the world changed, but there were warning signs, it's always easy in hindsight to say a big mistake I'm Jim agreed I'm a reporter in the WNYC news room and I'll be revisiting the evidence to understand why we didn't see it coming I'm troubled even to this day that we miss something blind spot the road to nine eleven a new podcast series from history and WNYC Listen wherever you, get podcasts. Professor Matthew Garcia is an expert on labor movements and Latin history. He now teaches at Dartmouth. And when he was growing up, you would not find a grape in his household I love graves. didn't eat grapes growing up because I grew up as a good Mexican American southern California observing the great boycott. My family are Mexican Americans and my grandparents were farm workers, and so it was very conscious of the boycott. Garcia ended up studying this moment later in life an academic and he eventually did start eating grapes again but he never saw them the same way. Grapes are a strategy for social change and that was impressive to me and I felt like in all the history I learned I hadn't learned exactly how the boycott worked and how Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta and Gilbert Padilla, and all these people that I learned of since made it happen. Chavez and where the and Padilla and others did their work in California's Central Valley much of the country's produce is grown asparagus almonds, walnuts and Avocados citrus growing there, and of course. Grapes. Grapes were really popular and there was expanses large expanses of acres that you could grow on a almost like a plantation type setting many of the workers on these huge farms are Mexican American and they had deep groups in this region. Mexican people had been coming to the American southwest or ill North Bay to them before there was a line separating that area and so it is a kind of native lands in some ways. Farmers knew the land and how to work it. After Mexico's nineteen, ten revolution, many rural farmers were displaced by the tumult. And number of them moved north. They came north because it was familiar to them and they also came north because their labor was of great value to that. Virgin, Nina content they were recruited they were wanted and they really found themselves useful. They found themselves comfortable and so many of them state. By nineteen twenty at least seventy, five percent of farm workers in California were Mexican or Mexican American. Many also stoked the racist idea that these workers were biologically suited to difficult farm labor, which often involved stooping down close to the ground. Is the so-called short handled Ho it created incredible back pain and back problems because you're bent over the handle this short they presumed that Filipinos and Mexicans were biologically predisposed to using those instruments and so there's this way in which racism is built into the kind of technology that is imposed on workers to use in farming. Men Great Depression brought many poor white farmers to California anti Mexican sentiment really grew and between nineteen, twenty, nine and nineteen, thirty, nine, the US government began mass deportations repatriating Mexican Americans to Mexico. Even, though many of the people deported had been born in the united, states had never been to Mexico. But then in the nineteen forties will work to meant that there was a new shortage of labor on farms in California. and. So the Roosevelt Administration started something called the bracero program. It brought guestworkers from Mexico to the United States but these workers would only stay for a short period of time. They could be paid a lot less and that if they became a problem could be shipped back to Mexico this undercut the ability of Mexican Americans to organize unions because the growers could just go to the guest worker by the nineteen fifties and sixties other labor unions are well established across the US organizing miners, an auto workers and others, but farmworkers are a real bind. Labor laws don't protect them. The work is often short term and far-flung so it's hard to get organized. Plus the program means workers have even less bargaining power. But there is a real need for them to band together. Because farm workers are getting paid really badly and living conditions are often terrible shanties and. Structures, there was a lack of running water oftentimes, there is a lack of sanitation, but organizing has proved really tough. Until some new activists come on the scene. One is a man named. Cesar Chavez. CIA had been born in Arizona is family had lost a farm in the nineteen thirties been to the navy. He was a zoot or at one point. Wait what does studer zoo sitter was someone that protected the war by wearing extravagant baggy clothes. This was world, War Two. The government was after everyone to save cloth and some men mostly black and Latino men said, hey, why should we contribute to this effort abroad when you've treated us so unequally at home They wore these baggy suits in protest. So the little bit of a kind of defiance there and a rebellion in him with all those things added up to someone who is very familiar to a Mexican American who's been beaten down and that's lost a lot in their lives. In the nineteen fifties Chavez starts working for a group called the community service organization or CSO that fought for Latin next civil rights. And overtime, he starts to think that they're focusing too much on urban issues. So he told the organization if it was going to achieve the goal of Mexican American empowerment, they had to go where the Mexicans were and they were in agriculture. The CFO is quite sure that that's what it wants to do, and so child has decides to do it on his own. In April nineteen sixty two he moves his family to the small town of Delano California. There he's GonNa live among workers and begin to organize them for better working conditions. Chavez joined in Delano by another activist who had been working with the CFO. Dolores Huerta Delors gave up a watch children and she had her family in Stockton and Dolores left that to come and join Caesar. Was a real force. G., was always talked about especially by her photos by our enemies as fierce as formidable as just a dodge people that she wanted to recruit like she didn't just gently persuade them. She really really twisted their arm. She was kind of the enforcer and played that role throughout the farm worker Movement for Cesar Chavez Chavez really relied on her to get things done sometimes in a in a really kind of rough and tumble way Another important activist at the beginning was a man named Gilbert Padilla. who was affable who was tall and handsome and when he spoke, he was presumed to be Cesar Chavez until they realize Oh, wait Thomas's that short man over there who softspoken tough was known for this more quiet leadership style. In some ways, he was much different from the famous leaders of the sixties like most notably Martin, Luther King who gave famous speeches that people still quote today. Of Cesar. Chavez speeches were in these quiet. Little homes and Delano and throughout the San Joaquin Valley that only a small group of people witnessed and was his charm. The activists set up an organization called the national farmworkers association or NF W. A.. And this was a major part of their strategy, the House meeting. They go door to door to get people together to think about and talk about what's challenging them at this moment in their lives and what they want in their communities. Without the presumption that they were going to pitch anything A solution to them it was as much listening as it was saying, okay. We'll hear some strategies for changing the conditions of your life just kind of getting a sense of what it is that would move them to a little action. The early activism was all about these conversations among groups of people who shared a common interest. One story that always captures what it was like in those early days was the meeting of you'll padilla with Filipinos in Filipino hall most workers in Delano were Mexican or Mexican American but the workforce was diverse and Filipino, Americans made up a large percentage. At Filipino Hall, they cook very specific meals whose ingredients were very hard to find and guilt talks about wanting to forge this alliance with the Filipinos and going to Filipino Hall. Eating fish head soup with the Filipino organizer Larry Wrong. And it was almost like a kind of use the Catholic image of breaking bread while they were sort of breaking bread but it was fish head soup that they were doing it over. And it's kind of beautiful in a sense that it captures the how the movement was reliant on this racial understanding right to bridging of of two different cultures. While we're ta and Chavez and Padilla are working and paying and having house meetings among Mexican farmworkers. Filipino farm workers are also organizing. And of course, he had told us they tended to be more radical on the whole many had come from communist families are communist backgrounds they had migrated throughout the Pacific northwest and down into California. So the Filipinos respected Cesar Chavez, they respected the power in numbers that that Mexicans had but they understood that they were the more radical. On September eighth nineteen, sixty, five, three years after Chavez and wear and the NFL the UA began organizing the Mexican American workers the Filipino workers take decisive action. The Filipinos went out on strike in a much more forceful and aggressive way in a much more committed way forcing Cesar Chavez now to say, okay, am I gonNA join them? Or are we going to stay separate from them? Eight days after the strike begins comes. Mexican. Independence Day. This holiday celebrates not the end of colonial rule in Mexico but the beginning of the struggle against it. and. The National Former Process Association holds a meeting on that day in our lady. Of Fatah Lubeck. Church Chavez gets onstage. And talks about Mexican independence. He. SAYS QUOTE WE Mexicans here in United States are engaged in another struggle for the freedom and dignity which poverty denies us. He calls for nonviolence and says that today they have to make a decision. Will the Mexican workers joined the Filipino workers in the strike that has already begun? The vote is unanimous. Yes. And so the next day Mexican farmworkers begin a strike. They're going to stop picking grapes until they have a contract that will ensure better pay plus things like health and retirement plan. Soon, they go out and picket lines on strike, but they face some difficulties when you're picketing a farm that's many acres long on these rural highways, it has little effect. Right no one knows what's happening. There aren't a lot of people passing by and so unless there's media attention, there is really no public acknowledgement that there is a strike going on and the growers knew this and so they felt like they could outlast the w then they felt like a strike on a farm in the middle of Rural California is not going to succeed. Plus. It's hard for workers to stay out on strike for months on it. Many of the workers were living hand to mouth, and so they really needed to work. So the activists start recruiting volunteers to come join the picket line. Students and ministers who may never have been Delano. The extra support helps, but it's still not that many people. The organizers need another tactic to get national attention focused on this issue. And that's when the boycott came into play the boycott. At this point, the strikers are focusing on one major company that grows grapes the Shenley Corporation. And they decide to enlist other unions to help them boycott Shenley products. They blocked those products from getting loaded onto ships or transported in trucks, but they were boycotting everything that. These growers put grapes into including wine and wine. Is Not really perishable. In fact, it gets better with age. So these boycotts aren't yet having the impact that they could. And meanwhile the strikers are facing pushback not just from the growers but also from law enforcement. The Kern County sheriff is arresting picketers even those who have done nothing. In the spring of Nineteen, sixty six, the country gets wind of all this in a big way when Robert F Kennedy comes to Delano. And it's not just a question of wages. It's a question basic question of for the future as part of his visit Kennedy questions the Kern County. sheriffs. If I have reason to believe that there's going to be a riot started and somebody kills me. That is going to be trouble if you don't stop them this way duty to stop and then you go out and arrest them we absolutely and charge them charge you what are you charge them with? Violate in. Unlawful Assembly. I think that that's the most interesting move. TOLD YOU THAT THEY GONNA? Riot. The men right out in the field that they were talking to if you don't get him out of here. We're going to cut their hearts out. So rather than let them get cut you remove the 'cause. How can you go rest somebody if they haven't violated the law, they're ready to violate all in other words. Could I suggest in the interim period of time the luncheon period of time that the sheriff and the District Attorney read the Constitution of the United. States? This encounter makes good TV. The public is paying more and more attention to the farm workers and around the same time as Kennedy's visit China's and others organize a massive march to the state capital in Sacramento to bring more attention to the cause, the March to Sacramento's. Incredible moment of cultural affirmation particularly for Mexican, Americans and it it kind of undermined for a time Filipino Mexican coalition because it was framed is a pilgrimage with. Catholic overtones with the Virgin Nick Guadalupe at the front with songs to have these cultural symbols in these religious symbols that are familiar to people. Have the effect of pulling new members into the movement? But. The Filipino start to feel like Well, you know we were the ones that started this whole thing and where are we in right? So it's also a moment where the Mexican culture begins to overshadow the multi-ethnicity of the movement. But it is during this March that the strikers win their first major victory. The SHENLEY Corporation agrees to a contract. It is a huge step forward, but the movement is really just getting started after all Shenley is only one company. The workers under an organization now called the United Farm workers turn their attention to a much bigger boycott on grapes. The perishable ones the ones that if they're not loaded onto ships will sit on the docks and rot they felt like okay. Hide to stop grapes in every single place where grapes are sold. We've been stretched too thinly, but we could handle sending armies of boycotters to cities and try to convince people not to buy grapes. So this new strategy, a nationwide boycott. Begins. Hey sleepyhead. Why so sleepy? Oh, it's because your mattress is a bag of potatoes and scrap metal. You should try a nectar mattress with award winning layers of comfort.

The organizational energy behind this new phase of the boycott is Dolores Huerta here she is in a speech in Sacramento recorded by K. Q. E. D. Division we may. Than usual ways in organizing willing to try new and onions. You. Dolores Huerta was incredibly important here she goes to New York and she figures us all out I. She tries to convince the seafarers union to Blockade Grapes moving from New Jersey to Manhattan, and then what the grape growers do is they file an injunction against the seafarers union said, they're in violation of Taft Hartley they are, of course, in case you're not as familiar as Matthew Garcia is with the Taft Hartley Act it's A. Piece of legislation from the nineteen forties that created all kinds of restrictions on unions. One of them is you can't have a secondary strike basically, you can't rope another union into your streak. Well, Dolores Huerta says, we'RE GONNA take the battle right to the storefront and it was often in the parking lot where people were coming in to Arthur cars and that's where they confront consumers. Probably they have to say is don't buy grapes. Very simple, very easy straightforward appeal. And then the question might come back for why I'm happy. You ask let me tell you what their pay is. Let me tell you how they live. Sometimes their strategy goes beyond the parking lot. They would take balloons filled with helium but also filled with confetti that had w symbols on them, and then they would let them loose inside the market. And when the manager would come in and say you guys get Outta here. Go kick them out and then they pop the balloons and the confetti would come down on the customers throughout the market and they'd have to sweep it up and have you know you FW and Locales and just different ways of. Creating mayhem and mischief. The activists even out up these boycott houses in the cities that they're targeting. They're kind of like flop-houses for the activists so that they had a to rest or even sleep and they became these really important social scenes. That were. Inspirational they were. Probably. A. Conjugal. But. They were also incredibly important places for strategizing. They'd work out you know the narratives and the pitch. The pitch is working after a year of boycotts and these ten cities which were the top great markets in the country they've been able to cut sales by at least thirty, three percent. The growers start to feel the heat they shift to other markets places like Kansas City or Denver. They try, Canada. Even, some grapes across the Atlantic Ocean to London. But You FW aligned activists their help prevent them from being unloaded. The growers do have support from some very prominent people famously Richard Nixon sent grapes to the front line of the Vietnam War. California governor Ronald Reagan eat scrapes at public events in defiance of the boycott. But none of it really matters. The growers really just finally realized they could not outrun the boycott and the boycott had become a global phenomenon and the only way to have this go way as to sit down at the table and Cesar Chavez and unsigned contracts. On July Twenty, ninth nineteen, seventy, nearly five years after the strike began the UAW signs a collective bargaining agreement with the Geomar. Vineyards Corporation and twenty five other growers. This is the first time that farm workers are recognized as having collective bargaining rights that the union can represent them. But more importantly because Geomar. Was the biggest grapegrower in the valley other farmers also agreed to sign contracts soon thereafter. For, all intense purposes grapes were harvested by unionized workers that were represented by the United Farm Workers Union and that had never happened prior to that moment. The Delano grape strike was a watershed moment in labor history. It was also part of a broader civil rights struggle in the late sixties. But matty ARSIA says when he looks back at it. The farmer's movement was a novelist in a good way. They kept the good feeling of intercultural understanding and what could be achieved by. Crossing. Lines, of difference to build a more unified movement than any other movement in America that time. The foundation of the Delano grape strike was that coalition between the Filipino and Mexican farmworkers? As, long as they're together, there's nothing that can defeat that movement and I wish. We had that kind of spirit today but we are a society divided and we run to our corners and week really probably too much strength in one aspect of our character as opposed to ways in which we're stronger by sharing in a kind of diverse.

Johnny Ken Show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi. Am Six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. All right. So W What does the insiders tell you? They're going to open up La County nail salons are allowed to they're allowed to but it is up to the county. So it depends if no decision yet never decision yet. The mine's been open. So I'm okay. Without me. We're going to get right into it. That's among some of the news today we're going to bring on. San Diego County. Supervisor Jim Desmond. I saw this story the other day. There were complaints down there in San Diego, county that they were going to have to be backed tiered. Yes believe it or not. That will go into. This. Colored tiered system by the way the cubs you can you can fall back. The color system is stupid it makes no sense. Will read. Well. Green is should be the promised land for anything. Right Green means go green means you're open red means stop red beans closed danger. No good and I've been confused with every story that comes out when they say a county is in the red here and that's a good thing because that's cured number two. and. The purple, which is the toughest. Yeah right and. I don't Expi- they figured though because there's certain things allowed the different tiers that redwood indicate too much closure but I don't know I I don't understand the colors. You're right. I think red should have been I. Guess the most restrictive zone should have been only because yeah most people think of it as a complete stop. So it didn't happen San Diego County for now is not going to slide back. One of the big complaints is that. Crosses over into another topic with covid nineteen. Including these college student outbreaks in the numbers is like punishing everybody for what sort of I think. Specifically, we're talking about San Diego State University let's. Talk. Jim, desma about this and find out more. Jim. Thanks. FOR COMING ON WITH US Hey John Cans always a pleasure. So San Diego State Tad a virus outbreak Hundreds of cases, and that threatened a lot of the businesses in the county. Yeah and when I WANNA point out is this is not businesses you know food they're getting blamed for this you know for a reopening of the businesses but this was saying we had actually over eight hundred students testing positive coming back to school they they came back. They partied too much. They got together too much in the virus bread, but we only had one person out of the eight hundred that went to a hospital, and then we're we're out you know. Within a short time later. So our possible capacity stay the same. We were trying to get an exemption from the state to say, Hey, look you know this stuff is going to happen at universities why should businesses and North County our businesses in east county all have to shut down because of an outbreak it at the universal, the original theory and because so much time has passed and they've changed the rules. I. Think It's worth going back to what the original Idea was is that you close businesses where it's more likely that the virus will spread among customers and workers? None of these cases have anything to do with any business in San Diego County. It was entirely a San Diego state phenomenon, and as you said I'm only one out of the eight hundred even went to the hospital, which of course, is standard for young people getting this virus. You're absolutely right and so we were potentially going to be punished for that. Luckily, we just eked it out. I think we are number was six point nine where seven is the trigger that you get into purple and so we were able to stay out of that but you're right this whole. This whole system is is just flooded with the colors. I get into yellow. You have to have less than one positive case per one, hundred, thousand people, and we have one county in the in the entire state that only has a population of seventeen thousand was able to make it into yellow populous counties. They're not GONNA be able to make that criteria at all even get in yellow, which is fifty percent open. This is bizarre arbitrary has been from the beginning and it got no better with these colored tears. So you escaped the dreaded Purple Tear by a tenth of a point. It had nothing to do with the logic of the virus outbreak being contained to to a college area. And had nothing to do with the businesses. Yeah and everybody thinks you know business openings are bad. You know posing businesses are good. You know they had nothing to do, and so we were trying we were trying to get an exemption from the states. I'm this university issue because you know why punish businesses or then what do they say wait wait is there possible reason for punishing all the businesses in the county for one isolated college outbreak I mean what did they say? They said No. Is What they said I I it it was which was unfortunate. You know it's like. Well, if we let you go for this, I'm going to let other counties go for other. Joe Headed, they should let other counties go for the circumstances. If it's like I was I remember a few months ago. There was one county getting penalized because the federal prison had an outbreak. Absolutely? Yeah. Well. Luckily, the state now is excluding prison numbers and things like that. But but we we were not able to to get that through. We've got more schools coming online here UCSD down here is going to be coming up as well and. Come be opening I guess this weekend and we're GONNA get a lot more students but I what they're doing they're gonNA test every student before they step onto campus Do. Before, they get in there so that we can get a get a handle on this, and so we don't have a similar br outbreak. We did it San Diego State Jim talk about an update is with the small businesses have been hearing from I mean even in this red here it's not pretty. Oh. No what today we well I did a press conference with the Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner today to let people be aware of a petition we're trying to send to the governor you know and and to get businesses to sign up it's open CAL now dot com. and. So Mr Wagner and I did that we heard from, you know many of our prominent restaurants we've got you know many of the Coen family and we also have the Milton family down here that have many restaurants, top end restaurants and they they can't. They will actually their top in moderate in but they they can't operate at twenty five percent capacities. Keep you know serving in the parking lot you. Know and and make make any profit any money, and they said between the two of them there was over three thousand employees that they had to lay off three thousand employees, which is you know they don't they don't mention these these poor folks say they're willing to give them rent subsidies and things like that. Why don't we get them back to work instead of you know getting them dependent on the government And then they complain there's that they have fifty billion dollar shortfall of tax revenue. Yeah, that's true and so it it's been very unfortunate. It's been very frustrating. We're on pins and needles. They're just trying to figure out. You know we're chasing in this case rate adjustment factor if you're aware of that. So you put your numbers in and then the the sedates gets to adjust your case. By the average number of testing throughout the county so fifty percent of the counties are going to have their numbers raise. If they're below the average and fifty percents of the counties, we'll have their case numbers lowered if they're above the average and so we don't even know what the average until like yesterday for. A half ago it seems like they have to. It's a lazy way to determine. What's really going on and a Particular County Ernie geographical area is to use a broad number covering millions of people. When you know here in L. A. in L. A. City, you know the east side is far more impacted than the west side and yet everybody lives under the same rules and the west side has a tiny tiny tiny fraction of what the east side has in terms of case. Notes one-size-fits-all and if you're in the wrong sector, your business will be shut down even though you're operating safely and you've done all the protocols, you can still be shut down by the State even pushing for local control we've been pushing for San Diego. We know let our health officer in San Diego County who's who's actually been reasonable. Very reasonable is let them let. Her you know decide what can open what can't and what exemptions we should have, and not they. They've got the better pulse on what's going on down here and even in La County of the Sacramento is often clueless on what's going on in the rest of the state, High Tim. Thank you and thanks for fighting the fight for these business owners we appreciate it. Well. Thank you I. Appreciate the time. I said Ego County Supervisor Jim Desmond. San Diego just narrowly avoided. Back tiered. If. You follow that the purple tear is the worst one and they're almost shot back into they'll stay in the red tear but it's still so limited with these twenty five percent capacities for restaurants still difficult to stay afloat more coming up. John and Ken show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi, exporting live everywhere on the iheartradio APP right as we continue to talk about corona virus or just talking about San Diego County, and again, this nonsense of one-size-fits-all mean in La County John Besides the west side versus the east side think about all the other parts of the county far out there towards the Ventura County line that even far fewer cases that were seen in parts of the city of La. Disparity between areas in the county that are more heavily affected and those that are very lightly affected or not at all it's a traumatic disparity. There are pockets of more MORE FREQUENT CASES A higher number of cases more. Denser. Number of cases I guess is the best way to put it, and then there are some that are very scattered almost to nothing and I don't understand. Why these these these blockheads from Sacramento make these proclamations that everyone is supposed to salute. It doesn't make any sense. So the San Diego County they're breathing easier because they can stay in the red tear, which is still pretty restrictive. Because they're at six point, nine cases per one, hundred thousand but you know had they hit seven. then. Then they'd be closed everything down again. And it was powered entirely by San Diego state which at eight hundred and eighty cases because all the kids went wild on each other at at parties. No one of those eight hundred eighty ended up in the hospital and that person got out quickly. What's the? What's the point of this? Now, let's go to a part of the world that really has to be the funniest to talk about when it comes to analysing strategies to battle the corona virus and that is the country of Sweden. With ten million people it's approximately the size in terms of population I meant population of La County we've been watching Sweden because they took a different strategy than most of their Nordic neighbors and even many other countries of Europe and at the beginning it was looking could then they hit a rough patch then it went quiet. Now the situation is being examined is that there are new outbreaks in parts of Europe France Spain new restrictions in the United Kingdom Sweden CNN any of this. And in this story in the Elsa Segundo Times, some other countries are actually sending help advisors to stock home to ask questions how come no second wave. We don't understand doubt the strategy for Sweden was simple. Once, it got going. Although they are saying in this story on that they did not maybe protect the nursing home resident quick enough. That's half their deaths do yeah that that's the big mistake they made was. Not Protecting The everybody in the nursing homes. Though they treated everybody like adults they said just socially distance don't worry about the mask stay home. If you don't feel good follow these basic guideline mass go nuts but you know what the mass are not, which is what everybody's marveling at they. There's most people don't wear masks in Sweden and didn't for most of this I'd like you because you need the masks. If you're in close quarters indoors with people remember you have to take somebody's viral load for about ten minutes in be inside of six feet of them, doing the viral load out of their mouth. That that's the main way to get it, which is why the bars caused. So much of a problem just don't have somebody sneeze on you when there but people I, I see people everyday walking their dogs with these huge masks on their face. and. Their any it's. You don't need that. But if they WANNA live that way that's their business by comfortable. But yeah, they're comfortable. But they're idiots they're panicky. They're ruled by their emotional surges a field drive in the cars with the winds, drive lorries, cracks me up, and then you know people are constantly writing on online. Believe I saw somebody jogging without a mask any job right by me. And it's still going on. It you're not going to human nature for people who don't like it when people don't conform to what they're doing. Without masks also have the same attitude. Look at that idiot people with Basques look at that idiot without the mask. Human Nature to judge. because. They're not doing what you're doing some but some people don't believe masks work and they do work but they work in the areas where you're more likely to get the virus where you're at risk. If, you're not in those areas then they don't matter. Of to traveling on a plane for a five hour trip. Yeah. You'd want to wear a mask in case somebody's droplets or floating around I wanna wear masks just in ordinary times. Yeah I was already creeped out by planes because most people smell. Especially on. Planes Oh God. When we? When we come back is a good story to face to Gavin newsom Washington Times did a little checking and what are you know even though he's talking to talk when trump was here about we need to do better forest management way to find out what the state did to sue the federal government to stop some of the clearance of all the excess timber you'll face is another term for being a liar John and Ken show John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou. Kfi Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP may we can feel the moisture the moisture back just three days For your messages one, eight, seven, seven, voiced six one. Eight seven, seven, six, six, four, seven, eight, eight, six, always toll-free the moist line. So, there's one sentence I wanna read I, in this Washington time story, which was put out last night about. The forest fires and climate change and management of the forests and it comes from James Taylor. Shower the People John. Probably none the same guy. Very good guess president of the Heartland Institute. It's a free market think tank. He noted that NASA satellites have shown a twenty five percent reduction in wildfires around the world since two thousand and three. Did you hear that? Because if you're going to address climate change and you to blame it well, it's got to be a worldwide think. He just share pick California because we have. Extraordinary number of fires and say see climate change he said of global warming were to blame for California's wildfires. We expect to see a global increase in wildfires but the opposite suitcase. That's open and shut right that's the truth. The people yelling about global warming including corrupt El Segundo Times. They're lying. There absolutely positively lying these people are constantly preach about the sides. Are you denying science? Are you science denier? We go after truth. And the truth is if climate change is causing all these ridiculous fires, it would be all over the world. Do you know how Little California covers on the planet? California. is a tiny little specked SPEC on the planet? Yes, and the forest areas are just one little piece of that tiny little speck southbound I checked were less than one percent, the world's emissions. So yeah. SPEC. And It's ninety nine percent of the rest of the world. Is. Not. Having these fires just US maybe we're doing somewhere. Oregon, come on fair Oregon's having a bad. They're doing the same thing. That's exactly and that's what's next in this story to point out the writer Valerie Richardson says how to combat the wildfires as boil down to an argument over forest management, which means tree cutting prescribed burns to reduce the fuel load and climate change, which means reducing carbon dioxide emissions in an effort to combat the drought that has stressed the forest and left them susceptible to beetle kill. The main point of this article though is that a bunch of governors including our own state governor and his attorney general have just sued the trump administration. To try to stop the National Environmental Policy Act modernization. Which would thin Not. Only the forest but the regulatory thicket and all the red tape which has been blamed for slowing down federal projects including forest management on the government's extensive Western lands, and again, we told you fifty seven percent of the acreage out here is federal nineteen, million acres. So the federal government wants to thin the forests except California has well, and the and the federal government is well used to be that they have all these. Requirements all these regulations, all these reviews. There's all these complicated laws that invite many different lawsuits and the federal government can't get anything done. They literally cannot chop down a tree without going through years of live litigation. Agency reviews. So they passed this act to streamline the system and newsome is suing to stop the streamlining. Now he just admitted in front of trump that we're not managing the forest swell and everybody agrees we're not managing the forest well, but here comes. A new federal law to manage the forest better and he sues block it. Along with the idiot governor of Oregon and the Idiot Governor of Washington these fools are sitting through one of the worst fire seasons in recent memory. And it's caused by their by the mismanagement. Of the federal government. And now, the federal government's trying to reverse it. And they're getting in the way with a lawsuit. I I've heard Tom McClintock mentioned this before this law national. Environmental Policy. Act is like from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine. And what they WanNa do is finally streamlining and that's one of the reasons. That often doesn't get enough play that supposedly help with the economy and a lot of things and businesses like trump because behind the scenes, they did a lot of red tape cutting over the last four years and apparently this was just another effort. But now we've got a bunch of states suing and it's the predictable western states. California Oregon Washington join twenty other states to sue last month to try to stop this modernization of this forty year old plus act which has caused so much delay in projects like clearing the forest. The says it newsome is again. Being duplicitous in that when he met with trump while he did mention climate change, he also said that we're agreeing that. What we're GONNA do is we're going to cooperate with the federal government and trying to at least. Treat one million acres of federal forest to reduce wildfire danger. He said reached agreement last month to match the federal government on treating a million acres of federal forest a year to reduce the catastrophic wildfire danger that would be brush clearance winning. But then he sued over the act that allows the trump administration to do the forest then to do it quicker. We just talk about that town up near Paradise I can't remember the name of it. I think it's called something creek that they got money over two years ago to do some tree and brush clearance and it got caught up in all the red tape and bureaucracy, they just got approval to spend it and to do the projects and then they part down right. and. Kind. Of what we're talking what newsome is doing is saying, well, we we agree that the money should be spent. You know thin the forests in his down except he then also supports. Two years of regulation and lawsuits to keep it from happening. He's on both sides of the same time. He told trump were fully committed to working with you on that 'cause thinning out the forest. At the according to one of the experts in this story, we should be doing five to ten million acres a year throughout the northwest and California. So this one million acres he agreed to is nice but it's it's way under the amount we should be a managing myron. Abell is the director. Of the Center for Energy and Environment. At the Competitive Enterprise Institute. And he says. Politicians like new summer using climate change as a smoke screen to obscure the issue of worsening forest health. And He said, it goes back to that nineteen ninety decision on the spotted owl. Now, how about that protect spotted owl? The timber companies couldn't cut down trees. To a great extent in which. Industries now and another piece we have here written by Another guy said, well, it goes now you know the spotted hours now the spotted are all fried. because. They all got bell bird up in the forest. Do we know that for a fact I mean well, that's that's what he said. There was a picture of analysis last year. One of the fires over that Al with the big yellow is we were looking at that picture he got burnt, and this is a guy who used the pseudonym name Blake Clarkson. He said he couldn't use his real name because he didn't want to lose his job. And he says you like hunting trees they're gone now you'll love the spotted owl. Here's some for you, Xtra crispy. Oh, gee concerned about erosion get ready for some serious mudslides this winter with all the grass and smaller plants burned off worrying about particulates from a control. Wildfires generate orders of magnitude more. The environmentalists have killed the environment they said they wanted to save. For reasons, I can't explain I have the owl pretty higher in the animal hierarchy Oh I do too. They're good luck. We had his I. Haven't heard. A couple years ago intimate that song there's been a who how by my window now for seven nights in a row I think that you're GONNA die. Well, that is okay. Mercy two ways to look at it because I google this because many years ago up huge owl came over right by my window and I was just staring at it and I thought. Oh. Is this good look good luck and so i Google it and yes one is death and one is good luck. So I choose good luck. Oh. That's interesting. Look at that. You Google I did we're both right? Yeah. You really into. You must did you ever do which craft? No I thought it was very unusual. It's a rainy rainy night and I was in my bathroom and this this huge. Who got into rich witchcraft? That, you remind me of them. Come on Samantha. What covered report you? I believe in Bloody Mary when I was a kid what's that one? John that your friend was a part of WICCAN WICCA that sit right wecker. I went out with a girl who was a member of wicked. Vigo's it's. Really. Vegans I made that I was GONNA say. You went out with one. Why did no? No. It was later on I moved away she until he saw her culture started sending me letters in the return address was WICCA. Seriously I. was she nice. She was nice but. Became a witch. Dating you, there's been spillover him all these years. I think at Heck's. Johnny cash show. John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. May Not, be able to get into Sophie Stadium the new home of the rams and chargers to watch a game but they're gonNA put voting centres outside the stadium leading up to the election. It's just another location they've added for people do. Voting in person in a large place outdoors. So Feel safer then women we talked about yesterday that mailed rice in. Yes and trump. Have you seen her No no Sarah Picture. There sure is. A. Dead on crazy stare and. Have to say this if you look at the picture, don't be surprised if you think it's a man. because. It looks like a man. Anyway really short hair. And just kind of a big shoulders like. Her name is Pascal Pasquarelli Pesky Farrar of Quebec. Last Sunday at the US Canadian is Heidi. She made her first appearance in court today in Buffalo new. York. She sent a letter to trump with the rice and and we know what was in the letter give up and remove your application for this election according to the court papers. Remove your application, remove your application. She's Canadian, maybe she's not sure of the there were six letters. That she wrote one to trump and five to an address in. Texas. Yes. She was rebelling there because that's what she got in trouble in Texas and that's what got a reported. She says us. So she's mad at them. She sent them five envelopes of rice and. while. She called trump's hugli tyrant clown. Oh, look in the mirror. I made a special gift for you to make a decision. This gift is in this letter. If it doesn't work, I'll find a better recipe for another poison. So I might use my gun when I'll be able to come enjoy and then in capital letters the phrase free rebel spirit. She started a Hashtag. killed. Trump. Oh we'll. Get some. Attention. It's not the best Hashtag to start. Yeah, did she get any followers? Probably they're all under investigation now. She had to use an interpreter. So I, Guess Quebec she speaks French yeah. Crazy people she. Added a rough looking woman. The must have been some bus. He's Her attorney, nine, thousand, eight Fonda Funder Kubiak. Wants to be heard Ernie I. Don't think she's got much money who said that? Basically she's going to I guess just doing some of the legal proceedings. Yeah. I think she's being held without bail. Obviously. She built a lock should be locked up forever. Yeah six additional similar letters appear to have been received in Texas in September, and also at stamps indicating they were mailed from Canada. They caught her pretty quick. I mean you could mail a letter from anywhere in the world and you can make it fairly untraceable. How did they caught a really quick this woman? Well, you know the What you put a Hashtag that says killed trump they could track down where the Hashtag came from. And apparently she had been jailed and her fingerprints were on four of the letter that made it easier to well the fingerprints letters you're sending the rice into a specific town in Texas. Obviously, she would have some legal dispute, right so it's it's easy to narrow the candidates. How many angry Canadians are there in this Texas town she was charged in Texas with carrying a weapon tampering with government records and. She was released in May and they chart dropped the charges but she got deported. What drake trump into this Texas legal case. She emigrated to Canada from France well. The feds have to deport her so That's okay. Looking at Justin Taylor. A cousin in Texas confirmed she was originally from France instead said very Nice Lady, very warm and Connie. Wait for that don't. Every idiot relative says that. Picture looks warm and kind to me. Even if they just slaughtered thirty kids at a school, there's always a relatives. Is like a very nice boy used to wave. Hello to me every day. One of the most troubling fires to county a long time is still raging. We'll get the latest from Chris Ancarlo on that Nasty Bob cat fire and all of Ted's right it's in several different directions he's. John and Ken show John Kobylt. And Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty live everywhere. On the iheartradio APP. This is the seventeenth day of this fire in the San Gabriel Martins in the Angeles National Forest. Seventeen days. And it's spread out in just about every direction flanks everywhere. Stubborn and very large fire. One of the largest La County history, it's gone north South East West. It seems like every other day it's threatening Mount Wilson We'd have the observatory and you have those TV transmitters it goes down the hill and then it turns around and comes back or it goes after the observatory from another direction. So and there's just it's an impossible to rain to fight a fire obviously and This terrain hasn't seen a fire like this in many many decades so. That's why it's going on and on and on and everyday Chris. ANCARLO. To. Get here. pre-take Khorasan Car to do you wake longest, you've covered one fire no Thomas Firoz on that for Jesus's about a month. Oh and Wolsey was probably on pretty close to about where we're at right now. Actually I think that was about two weeks of just continuous coverage Those were obviously two very different incidents, but this one man, this has been a grinder what This status of the Mount Wilson Observatory and all the TV and radio antennas. Hang on one second let me you go. I was trying to focus real quick if you can see it through still they're still there. They're all still there. Yep. So last night, we we all kind of collectively freaked out. Right we thought that that was not going to be able to watch TV or listen to the radio or catch cable or anything because there was fire amongst the antenna up there There were also a lot of firefighters up there in engines there that the helicopters couldn't quite pick up and so while the flames did. Reach the RIDGETOP. There were defensive firing operations that were also happening at the same time and as I was told by fire officials, there was really no chance that that the infrastructure would be burnt up by this just based on the number of people that they had on the ground up there and they were ready. They had dug out You know cleared out everything that they could in anticipation of the fire reaching back up and you're right guys I mean it seems like every day Mount Wilson's escaped j. for astronomy and history I'm pretty much. Right Radio Radio got a couple up there, I can tell you right now. Right. Now, I'm connected to you guys via access which runs through Wifi and runs through cellular signal but otherwise, the way I would connect with you as our view which we have a tower up there. And I would turn my little mechanism on and it would bounce off that and head over to Burbank and you guys in here me just as crystal clear to hear me right now. and. So that is just one little aspect of the communications apparatus at the top of the mountain there the fire for whatever I. It's just really been remarkable and amazing to watch the way that it it seems to have moved on and like Maryland driver with a right turn signal turns left and you just have no idea where it's coming from and where it's. Going, and then suddenly the brink of dusk you see this orange glow coming from beyond the Ridge of Mount Wilson down and that's the way it's been. Now we haven't had the Santa Ana winds, but there've been local winds that have whipped up at night, which is why we wake up some days and we find out that the fire is headed in a new direction. It's. Headed back up towards Mount Wilson is A. Local. Conditions that are driving that problem. Yeah. No I think that's a good way to put it is that it is a lot of stuff that we're used to this time of year you get your canyon. UPDRAFTS as the day goes on and as the the atmosphere heats up you get your candy downdraft as the air up above cools down in Russia's down over the mountains you get your onshore flow which hits the mountains and and know compresses back over the mountains and moves toward the desert, and those are all conditions that firefighters. are familiar with a little tricky. They're not as predictable. The wing are not as unified in any given direction but we have not had that wind event that Santa Ana wind event that typically is a precursor is like part of the original flare up the fire or helps drive a fire in its midlife here this is just been day after day of consistent growth and could you imagine if we did get a wind events on this thing off Santa Anna's popped up tomorrow the amount of territory that has not been contained in the number of. Throughout the footprint of this fire, it would be devastating in. So that just shows you how much of a struggle it's been because firefighters have been working under pretty good conditions for the most part with the exception of maybe Thursday and Friday and Saturday of this past this past week. And yet they're still struggling to contain it and the questions why what's taking so long and the answer is they don't have enough people. You know I mean you're sitting at about one hundred, fifteen excuse me one thousand. Fifteen hundred firefighters there we go. Fifteen hundred firefighters working on this thing, and it is now the second largest fire in La County history and you know last night I was going through my notes and I. Have my notes from the Thomas Fire I was like, Oh, well, you know maybe I'll check out how many firefighters were working at a similar time on the Thomas Fire and what I found was that when this fire when the Thomas fire was ninety thousand acres, they had over two thousand firefighters working on it by the time. I drive by the time it was one hundred, forty three, thousand acres. So pretty close one, hundred, thirty, two, thousand, acres, eight, thousand, five, hundred, one, hundred, forty, three, three, thousand, and when it was two, hundred, fifty, thousand acres that eighty five hundred firefighters working on it, and this they're struggling to get to fifteen hundred. So that's that's really one of the big problems that they're running into not to mention it takes five hours to drive from one end of the fire to the other trust me I know. All Right Chris Thank you very much. Anytime guys always tomorrow it'll be the same. Kris Ankarlo KFI news has been covering that. Stubborn the bobcat fire which started in a recreation area maybe a camping area this would be in the Abriel. What What were you saying you? Gabriel Valley area of the National Angeles National Forest like don't be camper started this one. WAS NOT a gender reveal from what I understand that and the other fire which took the life of the firefighter though which makes that one really many ways worse they did reveal that this one has destroyed the Bob Cat at least twenty nine structures and among other. Outlets the top of Mount, Wilson Channel Five and Channel Four have transmitters up there so. You think they would send their best anchors up there with the hose. Protect Our investors? Supposedly, these are valued at a billion dollars these communications hours. Yeah. Yeah. There's there's a lot of stuff up there. Imagine they have a lot of cell towers up there too and Emergency Communication Towers Dealing with the firefighters says here, you're only allowed to work fourteen day straight before you have to take mandatory two days off. So. That's why part of the reason why the number of firefighters dip from seventeen hundred to fifteen hundred. But they expect expected. They may land back on once they get past the regulation. Sorry we got more coming up. Man. Execute him for distributing rotten. Patient scheduled to be terminated tell them all I'm not going anywhere. They're gonNA execute look a few minutes said he didn't want to just to be captured now all you WANNA do stay. Tuned coming into. The second hand smoke does kill to you know. They're gonNA kill her better her than me. An update from the John and Ken Execution Desk here's John and Ken. John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi. Am Six forty live everywhere. On the iheartradio. APP Yeah. People doing pandemic trump does. That's right. We have two more federal inmates going down this week. Caught you by surprise Places Tara Indiana. They have the federal facility. Today it's William Emmett. Lacroix fifty years old. He will be the sixth federal inmate executed by lethal injection this year at this prison in Indiana Thursday another guy goes down Christopher a via the Alva-. Who would be the first African American on federal death row to be executed. Oh. My goodness. Lacroix is white though. As we're four of the five didn't make executed earlier the fifth was enough a whole. Defensive Forget the race balanced song we had diversity in executions. That's all. White although the UP US population. That's why I've always thought for all these activist groups that one end, the death penalty or empty death row because of the racial disparities, it's like hey catcher Dale. Let's kill all the white people now all the white guys on death row. Let's go. So, this is a peculiar case. He broke into the Home Mrs Georgia at a place called Cherry log. Of a woman by the name of Joanne Lee Kessler October seventh a one he waited for her to return from her shopping trip. When she walked through the door he hit her with a shotgun tighter up raped her slashed her throat then stabbed during the back. Yeah he knew her because she lived near a relative's home and would often wave to her as he drove by. But he told investigators, he thought she was a witch spell them and also believed that she was his old babysitter, a person he called Tinker Bell. Who Lacroix claimed sexually molested him when he was a child. After he killed teaser. He realized no no, she's not the babysitter. He wrote a note you were an angel killed you. I'm a vagabond and doomed to hell. He's the owned up to it. He took her truck after trying to make his way. That's a terrible. Terrible mistake you think. Somebody molested year you kill them and then you realize ono. Got The wrong woman. She apparently took a strange interest in witchcraft. He joined the army at seven team was discharged because he went awol. And, then he got really interested in witchcraft and then started going to prison for things like burglary or they go child molestation and other charges. He said he was ruminating for days before the killing on how teaser Whiz Tinkerbell the? Babysitter and that assaulting her would reverse a that. She put on him after he cut her throat, he went to teasers computer to search for books about witchcraft. So he was convinced that she was the babysitter at a witch. Bow. The family was asking his be spared because among other things he had a brother who was a police officer, a Georgia state trooper by the name of Chad. Lacroix? He was killed during a routine traffic stop ten years ago. So the family was trying to say please don't take away. We've already lost one son but I'M GONNA. Lose another. Oh we don't know if this execution is going to happen is ending I can't believe that. Our our, other son. died he was a cop. And so spare the murderer. What kind of logic is that? What kind of legal argument is that people love their sons? They SOMEBODY WHO I mean, this was brutal killing two. Yeah the next guy that's going to be executed is coming up in just two days. That'll be on Thursday. Now, we don't know this one could get halted but. Most of the others have not recently. So I kind of doubt that. But this is a guy that the Thursday execution. is a man that shot to youth minister murdered them. Do. You, know. So a KRISTOF. So this guy was So, this guy was the sixth one or time they do the two it'll be six right. Do. You know that yet six executions this year do you know that? No Lacroix is the sixth the craziest six the next day on Thursday would be the seventh. Right Yeah. Well. Do you know over the last fifty six years? The federal government had executed just three people. Just three people and this year alone trump is off seven. So. Another reason to vote for him. Seven reasons vote for him. I never heard that come up when he was running for President in two thousand sixteen that if I'm elected will put to death more people on death row than any other federal executions really rare I mean federal crimes are are less common obviously than, yeah. This guy carjacked and then took the card to Canada or tried to cross state lines. Like Timothy, McVeigh was one of the ones executed before this year. He he blew the old. City Building Nineteen Ninety. Five. When we come back, we're going to one of our favourite California cities. Good old. San Francisco is in picked on enough get this remember the story that was leading the way for a couple of years of all the car break ins they're down. They got replaced by home burglaries big time because you know why a lot of the tourists are not in town leaving their cars parked on the street no cars to break into. Thieves have come up with another idealises break into homes we'll talk about it. John and Ken show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio radio APP. Forgot to mention the grim milestone today, John Two hundred thousand deaths in the US from thrown virus. Why is that different from one? Hundred, ninety, nine, thousand, I I don't I don't get it because it's. It's cheap sensationalistic nonsense on the part of the meetings they would not support the Humboldt. It's a number with a lot of zeroes in it. That makes it worse? At a year grim mouths though ran a milestone another grim milestone. And they are they still use that phrase none of 'em think know this is a really tired Shea. Catchy both milestone. Did you think it'd be two hundred thousand dead though we started the story in March? Or February no. No. But you know who knew it was going to race through all the nursing homes. And account for you know a forty percent of deaths currently trump said last night at a rally. Yeah. If you're an old person with heart problems said taken its toll but young people they're fine. That's true. I know just the way he short is everything to what? I think starkly this is what viral outbreaks do is they take out the olden and the week the unhealthy people. A lot of the unhealthy people made themselves unhealthy damp remember the Spanish flu was the reverse it took out younger people visit overwhelmed immune systems remember that. Yeah there. But a lot of other things just. The regular flu every year but just generally takeout takes out the elderly and the underlying health condition people. We've got a live with with millions and millions of pathogens on the planet and You know they're out to get us and that's one reason you got to keep yourself as healthy as possible if you care about that. All right now up to San Francisco we go when we normally talk about them we talk about the homeless. This is kind of connected to that. Another great thing that San Francisco's known for our car break ins they had had record numbers. Well, we can tell you now that car break INS are way down. They've been replaced by home burglaries. And car break INS are way down because there's a much smaller availability of cars. Nobody goes to San Francisco anymore not. A lot of cities don't have tourists and that was a big. Tourist don't pay attention. They were often the victims of car break ins then at there right so it's like a lot of cities tourist did not return yet. So the criminals had to come up with a new plan. And they have decided to break into people's homes often their garages although they're also well what they call hot prowl burglaries. That's when the burglar enters a home or business when the person is there. Berg really disturbing this is their line of work. This is how they earn a living and they need stuff to sal. In order to pay their bills, right get food, maybe pay rent and also to buy drugs 'cause they're drug addicts many of them. And they do this aren't there they'll have to do the thing and break into the homes it. Apparently, the vendors are a couple of postings on the nextdoor APP last night someone broke into our garage and stole five of our bikes. Oh, yeah and and they probably I mean, that's what the homeless guys are doing. Right? Raj Window was melted with a blow torch on Friday night, Saturday morning, the second attempted break-in. We replace the glass with plastic window after the first, but they were prepared with a blow torch. Incredible. Incredible. Yeah. Who who do you vote for? You know what? All these victims I wanNA know their voting records. because. Burglaries could be stopped to easily by having fierce police force. You don't have that. This is what's going to happen. I mean, you've allowed thousands of people to live on the streets. What do you think those guys are going? Do I? I'm so like just fascinated in flabbergasted by people's thought processes if you allow tens of thousands of people to live on the streets, would you think these guys are going to do? They need money. So there's the Russians. A lawless place right? It is a lawless place and it's by design. So what do you? What are you doing calling the police? You don't vote for people who had maintained a strong police department you wanted to show up now you don't vote for people that would get all the vagrants off the streets. You don't vote for people that would put. Criminals in jail in fact, the San Francisco Da. Campaign Don the opposite Tessa Bodine. Bhuttan he campaigned on the opposite that he was gonNA. Let everybody go free. Well, with what are you do complaining and calling the police? I don't understand him. He had some of his staff call up people and ask him to drop charges in cases. Numbers Down Yeah Yeah imagine that you get a call from the DA's office. Hey, press charge you didn't really need those bikes. You know you're one of those white privilege people you had too many bikes. Other people need bikes should have donated them. Look at this as a force donation. Burglars have taken to breaking into cars along streets to get automatic garage door openers. Then they walk up and down the street clicking the device until the garage door opens. Yeah. That's a good one But heartbreak some shoplifting your down by a third but home robberies burglaries our way. Let supplies down. That's why if the cars are still out there that the the the criminals are going to steal the easiest thing that can break into the easiest available. Profitable. You know situation. So it's cars they're going to bust into cars in a if all right cars aren't available. What's next? Okay. We'll bust into unoccupied homes. From your working the night shift, you gotTa Bust into occupied homes. You, go for Garages Gopher Garage Door openers. Whatever's easiest is a good one. One resident said it's not just burglaries I had a friend who has two small children. She called me the other night at nine forty, five PM. There was a man with two big dogs having what appeared to be a psychotic episode on her front doorstep. She called nine one one waited for two hours. The police came I'm sure it's not because the police didn't WanNa come they just don't have the resources. No they don't WanNa come actually because that's where police get into trouble. They have these mental patients who they have to then forcibly subdue and sometimes it could go wrong could go wrong you end up killing the guy and then everybody goes Oh, there should have been a mental health worker there. The police aren't trained properly say, okay fine. You call a mental health worker. See if they could wrestle the guy who's having a psychotic episode and he's got two dogs. Let's see. Other mental health worker handles that. People in San Francisco. Deserve this every single crime report at a San Francisco now I laugh at. This point getting outraged and upset it's like a this is what you guys want. Enjoy yourself. I never have to go to. San Francisco for the rest of my life I don't want because a lot of the wealthy tech people decided they can work from anywhere. They're going to be left with more just homeless living well, tax base is going to shrink. Out because there are there bunch of selfish asses tech people. First of all, they ruin society with with their stupid social media invention. And then and now they ruined San Francisco by voting for all kinds of left-wing Kooks and now and things are too crazy. They've moved out and they live they've left the rubble behind. Thanks. Thanks for existing. We got more coming up. John Ken show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou. Kfi Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. WE'LL CHECK HIM with Steve Gregory after the news at four o'clock about what's going on with La County. The announcement was made by the state today and nail salons can reopen with. Of course, limited capacity. They've already allowed barber shops, the hair places, but the nail salons is still on the list he will update us on also. Close monitoring the cases from Labor Day they're also looking at. Businesses that are not in compliance with some of the restrictions. And it turns out that the biggest infractions are coming from the gyms and the churches. Stephen Give us all of this after the news at. Four. o'clock, they did one of these goofy surveys. They ask two thousand smartphone owners. From across the US. What would you be willing to give up for one month to keep your smartphone for that month? And the answer that's getting the most attention is that forty percent of respondents debra mark forty percent would give up their dog for a month rather than their smartphone. Are you pick your dog. I would pick my. Yeah month. Yeah. You couldn't post anything will yes. I can on my Top know for you. My question is you know that one. This is my question, my survey. This is the John Survey Sting. You're my survey says you give up all posting for a month or your dog which is I'd have to give up the dog I think there you go. That's what I figured. What? But? No, I'd have my husband. By Gambling. Away on vacation of. Phone is only living creature that comforted you Friday night during the earthquake right and if that dog new you ditch, what did I say I, when Ken pose the question, I said my dog and I would post on my laptop but then when you switched it around right because the real. The outset that was really smart. John. Expect any answer from you dog lover fake you know but I m saying is my family would be with my dog. It's almost like I'm on vacation right in my dog isn't with me, but my cell phone is stopped trying to rationalize rationalize. You've made your choice. Did you have you watched the social dilemma? I have not the documentary face yet. All right. This is my number. One thing to see in life. Can't have you seen this now? Social Dilemma Watch it. We I never heard of the facebook. What is that? Now, this is a show. Talking, about Oh he said facebook and I said, well. Never. Net flicks but facebook it shows. No, it's well they do but. no, it's on Netflix it's among the top ten. Most popular Netflix shows right now and what they did is they interviewed. All these former high level very young. DB social media. Executives. And one of them. We had on the air a few years ago. Now, his name is Trista. And because I'd seen him on sixty minutes and he came from one of the social media companies and he said, here's how it works. We figured out how to Hack your brain. We figured out how to release dopamine every time you go looking for likes, and then when you get the likes, it makes you wanNA look again and look again and in the meantime we keep feeding ads And that's how we're GONNA make a whole lot of money because we have gotten new addicted and you could see it with your own is right. Everybody's walking around staring still and this has been going on for over ten years. And so now they had probably ten of these people give interviews basically to say, we're sorry we had no idea this was going to happen and we think we've ruined society. Because you know suicide rates among teenagers are through the roof and People's pity people bad people in life now manipulating social media, and starring up all kinds of hatreds and all kinds of problems in crazy conspiracy theories and they went through the whole laundry list, which we we spent everyday talking about here and I I saw this show it's only about ninety minutes. It's really really good and I thought you know something I figured this out. Ten years ago I was talking about it on the air and everybody here at the station was say, Oh, come on you gotta get with The Times. You've gotta get with the changes you know you're sounding old you know as I said, no, I'm right. This is GonNa this go screw everything up 'cause it's brought out everybody's worst side. Everybody's idiocy everybody's evil it's an obsession. It's an addiction and on Alec what we have years later, and they had a lot of footage of rioting and even genocide that has occurred around the world because of the ability for bad people in bad governments to manipulate people's minds to get all the crazy people hooked up like for example, the rioting and Portland now yeah. We've had writings since time, but that kind of. Sustained rioting, you could only get that from social media but putting out the word, every lunatic who wants to join the party can get now traveled to Portland and Ed and do all kinds of damage and all these tweets, and by the way all these guys five cent with my wife and she's looking at the intro to this right where each each of the interviewees was. Recorded sitting down in their chair fiddling with the microphone getting ready for the interview and they all seemed weird and awkward. Some of them are really strange looking and she goes my God. None of these people have any social skills and this is before they even spoke and then they started talking and you realize you're right. You know none of them had any social skills and they thought they were doing something wondrous for humanity. It was going to bring the whole world together and we were going to have an endless summer of love and paradise. And now they're crestfallen and and and and they created Frankenstein monster that got away from them and they don't know what to do. All they have left is cliches platitudes and how he can make the world better even after this. Well, yeah we can raise create some money for people in need it brings people together in positive ways sometimes doesn't it? Yeah. But the the the damage is way outweighing the positive. When we come back and by the way. Men Go would not give up sex for a month of course, cellphone smartphone though. We have standard. You say, okay I know where we you're ditching the dog we're not ditching you. I didn't update on the La County economic lockdown over the coronavirus coming up. John and Ken show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty life everywhere on the iheartradio APP the CDC made it official. There against trick or treating this year. The social like to know who cares what they say. Botched up enough door to door took a treating an trunk or treating no. Good. Trunk or treating retreats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots Okay. Thanks. That's easy. Pickings didn't have that when I was a kid down I. Never I've never seen that I didn't even have apartment buildings where you know that's also easy pickings up to go very far like the doors right next to each other and. Get The can I think people are. Going to ignore that particular recommendation. It'll be if she just see what Halloween Francis in terms of people's behaviors. A big party day to Saturday this year they'll be collection of you know a overprotective Mommy's. But I think a lot of a lot of kids are going to do what they want i. didn't one week. We'll have the first presidential debate. We'll talk about that in the supreme. Court. Stuff to. We get to Steve Gregory Right now to talk about what's going on with. La County this announcement today that statewide nail salons can begin reopening for indoor treatments have customers, but I don't know that La County is GonNa go for that. Let's bring him on. Dangerous Nail Salon. Here's the thing. It's always easy for the state to say, okay, we're okay with it. Now lead up to each individual county to decide whether or not they want to implement. you guys have known that this is nail salons in hair salons. All just points of contention all along, right? No word yet whether or not. They're going to allow these nail salons to open with limited capacities. Davor provided any proof even a single case. Of somebody getting a virus from a a hairdresser. Not, to my knowledge not in La, county in but I asked the question I remember talking to moon to Davis who's the health officer? Why were they so in a hurry? So so urgently in a hurry to reopen the food processing plants when they were having hundreds of outbreaks there, but they wouldn't let a restaurant reopened and had zero outbreaks. Couldn't understand the lodge room. There's no logic to so did he have an answer or did he give you a bunch of Gibberish? Well I mean it was it was an answer. Word Salad. Salad. Yeah with. But Yeah it was one of those words like. We've worked very closely. I'm like, okay. Well, what I want to know is, what was the you know what was you? You're thinking in doing that you've talked to Everybody in government for so many years now right and you also work with them on how to make presentations to the media right more effective. Is. Wrong. With. Them. Where they born this way do they all go to a school like a bureaucracy school? They learn to speak nonsense and Gibberish Word Salad I mean, why don't they anybody speaks straight and how do they learn to go on for two and a half minutes without saying anything? Yeah. Where they teach in college or what I'm GonNa Tell You well yeah, there's. Some of that in college you know when you when you start getting into these masters of administration programs, masters of whatever, and they start talking about public speaking in this that and the other and along the way, some people have this natural ability to be able to tell a story or to take something like what what we do every day something. That's. In the print and then make it palatable to the audience. I mean there's a skill to that. But what I would say to you is that a lot of these at least these administrators in municipalities and other elected positions are being coached and a lot of times they're being coached to do this in a way to where it sort of like A. Imagine a computer with a firewall. So match the words they speak or more like a firewall because it's protecting them, it's buffering them from from either committing to something to admitting to something or to explaining something it's sort of a firewall of words and when they in their being coached by PR firms consultants specially you know specially skilled a election. Campaign consultants that have their only specialty is to teach someone how to speak for two and a half minutes without saying damn thing. And they're making more money than you and I put together. And So so that's I. Mean That's the best answer I can give you that there are people that train and you can tell you remember when when. I pointed out that time where Dr Ferrara was always saying, Oh thank you for that question. That's disarming tactic. Yes. Because all the sudden the reporters because all how luck she listens great question what what customer service reps do we call with a complaint? Yeah. So I'm really sorry you're having this problem. Yeah. So you know that's a great question Oh. Thank you for that question. Those are all techniques as a little tips and skills and tricks, and then you know some reporters fall for it. They're like, oh, wow, she thinks skirt. And they're like to most doubted scrape next question we easy. Yeah. in in an I may be looking at this very bitter spectrum but no because every day you were somebody's got another report about this particular. Business is open or half open or quarter open, or it's closed and nobody and every single story as well. This doesn't make sense well. Sinatra that Something else yesterday it's like what what are they? Why are they doing this? Made me laugh when Ken months ago. Now, I can't believe you're saying months ago but when Ken pointed out to stages remember the stages and he says God, it sounds like a cancer thing I don't know stage key stage one, cancer stage four cancer when we move from stages colors. Yeah. Tears in colors I don't remember when that would who was sitting around that day in one of the editors in the newsroom. She's like she says, wh who decides this who sits around and decides this I said it's consultants. People that have no no. Usually no connection to the agency. They're probably some high priced firm out of Chicago or something, and then like you know our research shows if you do bright colors do purple it's an inclusive color. Bright colors and everyone will feel good about it and I'm thinking to myself. Win was read ever good. Also Morad is desirable now, right Maybe, that's I was warning if that was nippy manipulation because if you're told you're in the red tear it's like, oh no, the red tear let Angel it's really back and they go no. No, it's not that bad. Okay. I feel better now they've been threads a good college. Yes psychology in that it could be worse it could be purple. Purple Good. No No. No purples bad now. Yeah. That's what I don't understand this. In the amount of money spent on this, I mean look at the PR firm that we've reported here and other outlets have reported that that they spent what was it to three million dollars on the PR PR firms for La County and do you feel like you've been better communicated to as a result I? Feel like I'm big wide do everyday. Well, let me tell you something on the press conferences and again, this is not a conspiracy theory because my colleagues are all on board with this it's usually the same three to four reporters every day they're the only ones that get in to ask questions and the English speaking portion of it is usually over in twenty minutes. In the but that's because the first fifteen minutes are taken up by speeches and then the last five ten, sometimes fifteen minutes is English speaking the other day they took two questions and then the immediately went into. Spanish. Then into Armenian and then into Mandarin Chinese. So there. I'm telling you this is very little time given to answering questions for the onstream. They do not want hard questions. That is just I'm not giving an opinion I'm just telling you flat out this agency that county does not want a hard question they can't they're not prepared for it. They don't want to deal with it, and eventually this is all gonna come out eventually this will all come crumlin down because you can't stay hidden behind these virtual press conferences forever. Steve Hang on because we want to talk about what is that you WanNa talk about about. About the businesses supposedly out of compliance in La County that's right. They singled out the gyms churches. We'll talk about that. We come back. John and Ken show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty light everywhere on the iheartradio APP. Steve Gregory monitors silly county with respect to the krona virus and trying to return us some sense of. Normalcy, and of course, the latest is they want to wait and see what happened with. Labor. Day In terms of the number of cases, they also have been singling out some businesses that they say are had of compliance than you can update us on these things right now. Yeah. You know the naughty ones gyms, fitness centers and places of worship. The Naughty people I know they've been, they've been having a fight with a couple of specific churches about services. They've even gone to court several times over well in from the period of August thirtieth through September fourteenth forty-six sanctions were issued to twenty five different establishments. Of. Those forty, six, twenty, five of them went to fourteen gyms and fitness centers. And sixteen citations went to six different churches or places of worship. Yeah you know the gyms particularly smaller ones they've really been hurt by this I think that it's easy to just. Let's just say paper up the windows. People inside they're fighting for their economic lives here. Yeah I, mean. This is it or it's permanent closure so I would just violate the law. Yeah. Cover up the windows and try to get away with you can well I I've been seeing more of these outdoor workouts. I mean, there's one Jim and I think where was I at the other day down by? Lax Monte? Bello. But over there and I drove by and they had moved all of their equipment out into the parking lot and people were working out outdoors and I think, wow, I mean that that was a pretty big feet to move all that stuff out there and just do it. But they that's how they enough to have the space. Yeah. Exactly. But you know the places of worship like you say they're the. Ones that are having the biggest problem with this. Because of you know they're claiming that the the their religious freedom is being stifled and they're fighting in all the way then I would add to that to the remaining citations family entertainment center. They didn't specify what it was only one of them was given citation retailers three citations to three different businesses and restaurants. One restaurant in that whole time was given one citation. and. So far, the data from Labor Day is starting to show something. No. Well, what he did last last week for a four day period they saw an an incremental increase in hospitalizations and deaths, and that's their big concern. The they're very fixated on cases but again, we don't report cases because that's variable. It's it's too much of a variable cause remember testing sites were closed. Testing sects were closed for what three days because of Labor Day. So there was a backlog of right and people didn't get tested. Dinners closures because a smoke you had two or three right of locations because a heavy smoke. So the testing numbers can't be counted on this point. So you have to go with hospitalizations and you have to go with deaths and they had a little bit of a jump last week for four days. Very said yesterday that that concerned her she said she has to wait until Friday this Friday before she can sit down on our conference table and figure it all out to make sure we behaved or not. They're using broad-based numbers because. Earlier in the show we talked about how in San Diego they almost got pushed out of the red tear into the evil purple tear because they're suddenly was eight hundred and eighty cases at San Diego state right and all these businesses were threatened with closure or restrictions because what happened in a college environment and there's no end because we all same thing here is maybe that uptick for those few days was that the result of a specific incident in a nursing home have a big problem. Because, you know mostly it's the elderly get into into the hospitals. So what's the specific reason for it because it's not a broad-based reason? Well, lately problem lately, they did say there had been an unusual increase in the amount of younger people that were testing positive and younger people coming into hospitals. Now they weren't they didn't necessarily die the younger. You still have the deaths are still primarily people in the upper seventies, eighties and whatnot, but But they did see that what they said it was an alarming increase in the number of young people in hospitals, and they still attribute that to Memorial Day Labor Day. You mean Memorial Day from last night from May yet from back back and when they were seeing the increases in hospitalization the last couple of weeks that was from the previous holiday. So now we're now we're in the because sometimes you remember the the path that this illness takes. The way it's takes up to two weeks even show the symptoms of finding whether or not you're symptomatic. Then from there, it's just this long drawn out laborious sort of impact it has on a person's bio. So some people. So by the time, they get worse for weeks have gone by then you're in the hospital and then you realize mall you're pointing transmission was six weeks ago right your point of our your point of contracting six weeks prior. So that's why they're saying that the cases they had in the last couple of weeks were. Actually from the previous major holiday So now they're thinking this Friday by this Friday this should give them a pretty good sense of how things were on labor. Day. Because then you were kinda right in that sweet spot of timing and that's kind of what they're going to be said on. We're still in the purple t right yes. Yes. We have in could move to the red tear or moves to the red tear body. If if if she said she's cautiously optimistic were her words but if for some reason something goes south Between yesterday and Friday, it's just crazy because on the west side, there's just hardly any cases it really isn't I mean a lot of the towns. There's double digit total cases for six months and go to East Los Angeles, and last I looked and this was a week or two go. There were over six thousand cases is six thousand cases here. There's forty two over here and they're all living under the same rules it's and they're twenty plus miles away from each other it's stupid. and. This is what this is what I want to grab them, shake them with, but nobody can get near them. While they go. With good reason apparently. Yeah, right. Grad them virtually. More. Thanks who quartermaster. You can sure help take running our department store may pivotal really, and I mean, this was pivotal Paris by news is GonNA launch that after? Construction a lot of workers been done. A lot of rivers man decided to she'll I shelter? And now what update from the Presidential Race Desk? Here's John and Ken. Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP this the updated for that the latest spider slip the Harris. Biden administration. I don't know. Sounds like he's giving it away. He knows he's not going to be around long. Age. Do Know Right. You have a feeling like I'm I'm really not going to be here for Chris. Just feel your life's energy sapping getting sap. You want it could really be like. In whatever the meetings are, whatever everything is focused on. Kamala Harris. They know she's GonNa end up being President Biden winds. So he sits there in the corner because he's in a bubble nobody's near him. and He's thinking I. Guess this is a Harris by ministry. You could talk into it. I'm getting onto it now and stand Joe, you're the vice president again, oh. Yeah I. Remember that those were good times. You know it's weird because everyone this I mean everyone plays pretended public life especially in politics. But this is one of the great pretends they're pretending that Biden is not in dementia right and they're pretending like Harris, really doesn't matter. She's just going to be an appendage like every other vice president and even trump is not raising issue as much as he could or maybe he thinks debates will expose. Biden finally there. Got Common. The Harris because boy you look at the media like The Washington Post and the know times they had nothing just another tired old white man running against trump they love to trumpet. You know was Kamla Harris Alright African America, will but. Not. particularly. I. Think she's to make but. Jamaica American, woman, Jamaican, and Indian. Yeah she thought. So our heritage is not from Africa that we know of, but anyway. I today's national voter. Registration Day. Thought. You'd like to know that we are set up for the first debate one week from tonight. It'll be hosted by Fox News Chris Wallace. He today released the subject matter. She I don't know it's twenty twenty. What do you think happened this year I guess they're going to talk about corona virus. There's going to be questions about racial unrest and police. And of course, they're going to be discussing the Supreme Court. Opening. which is the big topic since Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday it looks like It looks like they're going to be successful. They're gonNA, fill it out before election day. Yeah, the big development today is that Mitt Romney basically says, yes. I support a floor vote. Which means he wants this and will allow this will not object to this process moving forward. So Republicans have fifty three of the one hundred seats. In the United States Senate, they were concerned of a few defectors who might not. Might cause problems process to go forward. But Romney now has stepped out of the way and he's always been the biggest trump locker. So they only have two out of the fifty three two female senators Eh from Arizona Not Arezzo Alaska. mccaskey in Maine's Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski forget it is least. She contributes nothing to the world except every once in a while she's the only Republican objecting to whatever the Republicans WanNa get done. and and The the two of them have said that we should not vote on it before Election Day. Now, neither, one of them said that they would not vote for trump's. Judge. If if If they're given the chance to they're just saying they're against the idea of voting on it at all. Before Election Day and yeah I think in the end they're gonNA fall in line. I would believe. So depends on the pick and how the process goes but. Unlike the way Lindsey Graham put it. He said Yeah I did say in two thousand sixteen. that. We should not go forward with a Supreme Court nomination during an election year but he goes after what happened with Brad Kavanagh changed everything. Like that just tore the roof off of everything I've had it. You. Mind it's fine. You gotTA play to win. and. If the other side plays dirty, you can't worry about what you said for years ago. That was the dirtiest thing I've ever seen in my life what they did to Brett capital it was completely fictitious. It was a hoax it was false. It was allies a smear it was all that. It it was garbage was it was like like a character assassination is terrible. So I don't I don't care what the Republicans do screw it. If you, that nothing is off the table. There's a group trying to help felons sign up to vote in Florida. This group which includes Michael Bloomberg's charitable organizations has raised twenty million dollars to pay off outstanding debts. Before they hit the registration deadline in Florida and less than two weeks. I assume that state. You can vote but if you have outstanding court debts that could block you from registering. So the those guys aren't GonNa. Vote. Anyway. Well, those guys are valid harvest them. Listening to them, they'll talk to them. They'll my God. You'd think so these are the guys live in intense. They don't learn it as voting for deficient deadlines October fifth as many as seven, hundred, seventy, five, thousand felons may have outstanding corner lights. Bloomberg is one guy and never said this about rich guys he really has too much money and there ought to be a law just attacks him. Money on so much political nonsense most of it fails. Zone campaign. Yeah. I forget how much he spent per primary vote but almost pathetic idol one Guam. What did he win? He won one. Yes. It was something like that. Yeah. He wants some island. Yes, you're right he he spends a lot of money does climate change projects. You hear what one of the other nutty ideas that the Democrats have that we're never gonna go anywhere but in addition to appointing former Supreme Court justices if they control the government, then they also want to turn the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico into states. And then they right then they would get four more senators senators now. That's a problem for them. The majority of states. When you see the voting map, every four years go read. It doesn't add up to the popular vote win, but it adds up to the electoral vote win and it adds up to twenty two senate seats. Yeah. If you want to shut up somebody, there's still some wieners going Hillary had more votes. It's like, yeah trump had thirty states hillary at twenty. Well and that's really what gaps. In is a little mind-boggling when you consider the Senate is by father more powerful there's only one hundred seats and a state like Rhode Island New Hampshire. They all get to senators just like. Well that was to keep a smaller states rule states from getting bossed around by the holes in New York and California. It works where We got more coming up. John and Ken show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. Oh, we have some breaking news. From the international scene. The president of I got this from the. Yonhap. News Agency out of South Korea John. The president. Of South Korea as leaders including trump for speaking. Virtually In front of the United Nations. General Assembly. The President of South Korea is Moon Jae in. And he is proposing an end to the Korean War. It never really ended. You know both sides just kind of walked away. That's why there's a divide between north and South Korea was fifty seven years ago. Wasn't yes. He says it should open the door for de Nuclearization and permanent peace, and that's going to be his big statement that the United Nations. End The Korean, I don't I don't think. South Korea. Was the problem there. Well on the threat. But that's nice offer but he wants to response from North Korea which along the same lines. All right. Let's end the war and let's Did they determine whether? Kim Jong UN is dead or alive or Vegetable. I think he's alive busy well I mean there's a psa we can't authenticate whether or not. These are current pictures. He's admitted a couple public appearances I think he is alive. They had him half in the grave. Sister somebody replacing them yeah. It was also spelled Y. I wouldn't deal with that. Guy. I disagree if I WOULD SAT South Korea whistle. CIGNA. Wait wait until they have You know when when those dictators whole family is overthrown. But as long as those crazy people are in charge, you can't trust them. I'd so here's an update on a story. We haven't talked about a while the top prosecutor in the US Virgin Islands is asking for more than twenty years of flight logs from Jeffrey Epstein Fleet planes a move that's quote stirred up panic among many of the rich and famous. Attorney. General Denise. George has. Sued. EPSTEINS state. SIP eating plane logs for each of his four helicopters three planes from nine, hundred, Ninety, eight until he. Allegedly killed himself last year federal jail in Manhattan. First reaction when I hear this stuff is always think Jeez isn't that stuff shredded and then I realized no, that was the blackmail that Epstein held over everybody Oh. So he is normally you'd think right if you were if you were flying famous people to your island. to. Fornicated with the fourteen year old girls, right. You would WanNa wipe away all records but for him, it was the opposite. He created an abundance of records. He created you know hundreds of hours of videotape. And I ask this. Company it's called Jet Aviation Holdings. And the demand is they turn over the requested documents within thirty days. The documents dated September third. So I'll though it's not clear when it was served, it could be coming up soon. How are they GONNA factional? Back in two thousand and nine well, it's the usual case of otherwise we'll take into custody you're charged. It say it's an order Uber who they gonNA take into custody since he's dead who's ever in charge of the state. That is his brother Yeah back in two thousand, nine pilot. David. Rogers provided logs that reveal Prince Andrew Bill Clinton Kevin Spacey, and I only Campbell were on board that Epstein jet known as the Lolita Express. which took people to pedophile island. Yeah. I wonder A. Very protective of Jeffrey Epstein after he died. I seem like he Oh and he was also questioning the suicide thing as many others are. Yeah. So I wonder if he would fight this or claim, hey, can't find. We looked all over the place. When you ask it for paperwork and you're asking it to your from from offshore. That's hard to actually get the paperwork turned over if Epstein's brother really wants to. Not Give. Not. Play, ball. Who knows where this paperwork is or even if it still exists and. There's a report tonight that Bill Clinton secretly met galet Maxwell for an intimate dinner in two thousand fourteen. I think he was. Supposedly having an affair, right? Yeah I think he was giving her the the action. I wait for euphemisms giving her the action. Yeah That's nice and benign. Crude about it. We'll be talking to John Koo Paul by the way, the John and Ken voter guide that's available on the website. It'll be there until the election. But if you're, GONNA start getting your balance and thinking about what you're GonNa do on the ballot proposition statewide you got the answers there will be talking about prop fifteen, the one that's supposed to. Rip a big part of prop thirteen apart property tax limitations will talk to John Coupon about how it affects the people that own commercial properties but you the homeowner, the consumer next. John and Ken show John Kobylt. Ken Chiampou. Kfi Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. Welcome everybody hates Mois lines coming back around and just a few days so You've got something to say. Get it out while it's still fresh, one, eight, seven, seven, moist, eighty, six, one, eight, seven, seven, six, six, four, seven, eight, six. We got more on California and forest management in a pretty good story and something called Spectator. We'll get to it coming up in a few minutes. We're going to spend some time now and a reminder I that. John and Ken Voter Guide is posted to the web page. It'll sit up there until we get this thing over in November? So far we've waited in all the statewide ballot propositions all twelve of them plus a couple of other races will be adding stuff between now, and then as we become aware of some things we may have missed. So go check out the Johnny Ken Voter Guide it can't fight am six, forty, dot com, the John and Ken page there's twelve propositions there's twelve and one of the most important one One of the most important ones to vote no one is prop fifteen prop fifteen would raise property taxes on commercial and industrial properties. This would be the first major violation of prop thirteen from nineteen, seventy, eight that capped. Property taxes and now they're going after and they realize they're gonNA do what they need to incrementally. They're going to do it branch by branch until they the whole tray and the first branch is to go after the business world. And we're GONNA get junk who Paul on President. Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association to explain why this wouldn't just raise taxes on commercial property owners but this would affect you. Airlie with right you don't own commercial property, but you own a home or you shop. Rent let's talk to John About all this John Welcome Hey, guys, how're you doing? We're we're we're good. So explain exactly what prop fifteen does. So everyone listening because most people really don't pay attention until the final days if at all, what is priority due to the tax law here in California sure. One of the primary protections of proposition thirteen is the limitation on annual increases in taxable value that is the value against which the tax rate. Is Applied in other states, your property tax bills up and down with the real estate market. But one of the key protections are prop thirteen is to limit the annual increases and taxable value to two percent. A year prop fifteen would take away that protection for commercial and industrial property, which we would result in anywhere up to a twelve billion dollar annual property tax increase. Now, they will say this is just GonNa hit commercial and industrial property. Two. Points to counter that number one. What's going to happen to Costco Walmart? What are they gonNA do when they have to increase their costs. Those costs will be passed along to consumers and most homeowners. My guess is or probably consumers. So wherever you shop prices go up and it's not just in the big properties either this is a critical point. A critical point is most of your small businesses eighty percent of small businesses. In California, do not own their own property they lease and those commercial leases are called are typically triple net leases, which means when the landlord gets a higher tax bill that tax liability flows immediately down to the tenants, and if you talk to any restaurant tour or any small business, they are deathly afraid. Of Proposition fifteen, 'cause it because the other side's GonNa talk about Chevron they're going to talk about Disney and we need to make sure that we talk about Manny's Muffler shop and Suzy's alterations because these are the small businesses with these triple net leases that are going to get slammed and for homeowners is not just the cost of living. As you just explained, the other side hasn't been. Secret about this, they have been open about saying we have to destroy proposition thirteen incrementally. Here's how we're GONNA do it. We're going to start with commercial and industrial property. Then we're gonNA come after apartments when we've done that and then the next election cycle, then we can finally go to the homeowner. So people need to understand the the deviousness, the evil of the proponents of this who. Seek to take everything away from proposition thirteen and you sight a former San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano who said you know if it takes an incremental approach and so be it? My tendency is to one a new kit. However, one has to deal with political dynamics here in California make it clear that right? They'll come at one stage at a time to rip the whole thing apart. Yeah and if you ask them, well, how much money do you really want? How much do you want? We already have the HIGHEST INCOME TAX RATE IN AMERICA HIGHEST STATE SALES TAX RATE IN AMERICA HIGHEST GAS tax we and even with prop thirteen, we're in the top half of property tax burdens a the fifty states, and they will never be pinned down. They will always say, well, it's gotta be fair. The rich have to pay their fair share. The reality is this. I'm sorry. But by the way, what is the fair share? Yeah. What is? The fair share is if you've got it, they want it and they'll take. It's at thirteen percent. They want sixteen percent at least that's right and addition to all the other taxes you mentioned. So what is the final number on the fair share? The well, if one simply looks at. The tax increase proposals from the democratically controlled legislature. Last year I believe it was well north of two hundred and fifty billion dollars. I mean they have an insatiable appetite for money and as a result. It those of us who love California and want to stay here. We have seen businesses and individuals move out of state. You Know California Guys California will lose for sure at least one congressional seat after the census because people are are moving out. Texas is going to pick up three new representatives in the in Congress. WE'RE GONNA lose one, and you know that's just a testament to where people are going. You Roach that. this will raise twelve billion dollars. Now, put this deficit aside because that is connected directly to the lockdown from the virus. We're what is what is it that they wanted to do with the twelve billion? What what are we short on because we gave them extra billions, for example, in gas taxes to fix the roads and no roads got fixed. So where were the twelve billion go? If all the everything else was normal, right? Well. First of all, you've gotta you gotTa on about the seventy percent of the money that's just flat wasted. You know things like high speed rail and and I just saw that governor newsom. Governor Mussa. New Cellini we call them now. New. Cellini. has just expanded the earned income tax credit for undocumented individuals. So you know those I, it's for welfare is for failed government programs and at the end of the day as you guys and I have discussed Ad Infinitum. Pensions Pensions, pensions, that is going to be the driver of everything that they're. They're seeking right now because this state in terms of the percentage of the budget that's debt is almost as bad as Illinois and It's it's very bad. We we're teetering on bankruptcy already. A UC. Berkeley professor who wrote a piece in the Sacramento Bee in July saying prop thirteen reform will be on the ballot this November the first step to rolling back this pernicious law. So he was admitting they want the whole thing. The I. It's like you know. they're they're not being shy about what they want, and that's that's why we have to really get the word out to homeowners to small businesses for any small business out there look at your lease and I'm sure the businesses are well aware of their leases. They will tell you that if this thing passes they're in a world of hurt. And the restaurant industry, which is already hanging on by the teeth they're gonna be slammed. So this is this is a proposal that's not ready for prime time and we'll never be ready for prime time. Now obviously, we want to win I, think the the polling for them is shaky at best but the the the Trifecta of uncertainty in this election. Is the volatility of a presidential election, the pandemic and mailed ballots with those three things? We don't know what the voter turnout models going to look like we have to work very hard. Done Cabal thanks for coming on. We'll have the on again before the election to remind everybody it's a no on prop fifteen. You Bet thank you guys Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association President. John Cabal and he's right the polling a little shaky right now thankfully for fifteen but they're going to start running those ads that make it look like it's all fat cat corporations that will get hit with this change. And it's GonNa come right data money going for the children in their school. Oh, I, forgot about the they would say that's the teacher pensions for the children I work up. John and Ken show John Kobylt Ken Chiampou Kfi am six forty light everywhere on the iheartradio APP. Great example of. Why we were so poor at forest management in the state of California, which is the real reason things are burning so badly. It is the accumulation of all the growth, the trees, the brush. Plants, everything out there has not been properly managed, which would include prescribed burns. Pointed out nicely in another story featured one earlier. In the show from the Washington Times. This one's in the spectator by a man by the name of Blake Clarkson. Who used to live in California he now lives in Kansas and he has to publish under a pseudonym because he doesn't want to lose his job because the way things are going when you publicly denounce something that the progressives hold sacred, then they try to destroy. Canceled culture the cancer culture. In fact, this is the second example I read today there's also a woman suburban woman I believe in Pennsylvania who wrote a piece saying why she's for trump? and. The whole piece was about, I have to write this anonymously because otherwise I'll be ostracized by everyone I know. And I makes me wonder how much. Is under the surface how many people feel rightfully oppressed and are afraid to express their view publicly as to what's going on because they don't want to be targeted on the Internet and you end up fired, you end up having a like a protest outside your house maybe I think a lot of people are terrified. Well he writes what's happening now with the forest burning up, didn't have to happen once upon a time for us and California were logged grazed and competently managed. It wasn't always perfect but generally it worked. He said fires which are part of the natural part of the ecosystem were generally small not just benign but beneficial land-management focused on keeping the forest healthy for all involved whether they were lagers, ranchers, fishermen, hunters, homeowners, or backpackers. Then things started to change groups such as the Sierra Club and the National Resources Defense Council began to drive a myopic agenda protecting environmental interests at all costs logging with shutdown grazing ban control burning undergrowth clearance was challenged and subject to draconian regulations. Fires were put out as quickly as possible. So. The trees crews closer and closer together undergrowth unchecked by grazing cutting or burning coup, thick and tall enough to reach the branches of mature trees. The forest became thick and overgrown by but man, they sure look nice and green from a scenic overlook. sawmills shut down the cattle business went elsewhere thriving towns dried up nearly went under we started importing lumber and beef from Brazil and other places with objectively horrible environmental track records and that that's what we did when we sent all the factory jobs to China they don't have any air pollution laws in China. So all the pollution we thought we were saving in. America went right back to China and is blown back at US and the same thing here you know we saved some some trees here in California. Instead they're cutting down the rainforest in Brazil. To. Send US lumber and descend to speak people didn't start cutting back on their lumber needs in the US. So take it from Brazil. He said ten years ago we hit critical point forested once had less than a hundred healthy trees per acre suddenly had over a thousand man's anita dry grass and other plants begin to cover the forest floor. So densely you couldn't walk through it without cutting a trail. All of this vegetation is fighting over water table that stressed on the average year let alone a drought year and not a lot of the trees are. Healthy up to be resilient bark beetles and other pests came in and you begin to see entire mountainsides covered in dead and dying trees. We couldn't be created better conditions for devastating fires if we tried and fire is a constant in the mountains of California, there's always plenty from dry summer thunderstorms but now that spark whatever caused, it catches onto a landscape overloaded with dead trees and dry ladder fuels every year it gets worse. So then he describes the fires that we've been seeing, and he says, why because lagers weren't allowed to thin overcrowded strands of trees, stands of trees because grazing animals aren't there to thin out the undergrowth because anytime, the forest service or large landowners tried to start a project to manage the land they got tied up in court and buried under years of environmental impact studies because any fire regardless of causal location was put out as quickly as possible for decades because any control burns were restricted by over zealous and short-sighted pollution threshold set by California's air resources board because politicians and bureaucrats stop listening to the people that actually. Live in the forest and I love his closing paragraphs here and all those things happen because well, meaning morons and organizations such as the Sierra Club and the National Resources Defense Council managed to get a stranglehold on state politics in the courts. It's because of concern for natural conditions that we're in this mess because of my mind myopic focus on certain species entire ecosystems are being overtaken by flames but they'll never accept responsibility they persist blaming fire conditions solely on climate change even if every single thing that they claim about climate change where to be true, it would not undo the consequences of decades of mismanagement driven by their COSC-. You like hugging trees are gone. Now you love the spotted owl. Here's some for you. Extra extra crispy concerned about erosion get ready for some serious mudslides winter with all of the grass and smaller plants burned off where about particularly from a controlled burn wildfires generate orders of magnitude more environmentalists have killed the environment they said, they wanted to save in their hubris they delude themselves into believing that they were right and any opposition to their enlightened. Stunning. Brave activism was the reactionary wrong think of greedy capitalists or Yoga lls. And he says, I live in Kansas now where people are generally saner. But he used to live in the Sierra area of California and as John Mentioned, they published the article under a suited him because he didn't want to his job whatever that job is in Kansas and he goes by the name of Blake Karl Clarkson any and grieves for the forest he grieves for the mountains grieves for everything. That's bird. Because he didn't have to happen. Is because makeshift think he might be in a more left-wing progressive job field where they really come after them I. Don't know I. I you know most people of the mountains and forests, but most people are emotionally manipulated by the types of the Sierra Club. They make you believe that every tree cut some environmental disaster. And, there's never any intelligent public discussion on how to manage a forest. The Indians knew how to do it. But we we came in. And for a while we were doing it right and then the environmentalists took over now it's a big business environmentalist groups make huge amounts of money in donations they give themselves fat six figures salaries, but the only way to keep the money flowing into to scare people to get them angry and inflamed and crazy to think that there's all these greedy pigs who want to burn down or chopped down all the forests. Johnny Michio John. Kobylt. Ken Chiampou Alex K. as I am six forty light everywhere on the iheartradio. APP. Alright. So the United States government still conducting the twenty twenty census he's going to move into another phase of. They're going to. What are you talking about? What the census thing is oh. This is stupid. They're going to go count the homeless nationwide. and. Then why? But in conjunction with this. The also GonNa Times just put out a story tonight. That La, county has given up on project room key. It is over that's the one that put the vagrants in the hotels. They only reached thirty percent of their goal. That just over four, thousand, three, hundred guests, thirty percent of their, and it's of course, El Segundo Times, they're ambitious goal another bust. Right because you can't tell homeless people what to do they don't want to be told what to do. They're not asking for your help. Okay. Just, because they hold up signs begging for money, they just want to get the next head of heroin or booze or whatever, but they don't want you giving them a home. The idea of this started in March because of covid nineteen, they thought it was really dangerous and worse to be on the streets. Now being outdoors is actually a good thing. And they didn't want to put them in shelters because they'd be bundled next to each other, and that could spread the virus. So they're brilliant idea was to take over hotels which were empty by the lack of tourists and business travellers and use the hotel rooms for the vacant and try to bully the hotels into taking him. Are. Trying to threaten them saying, Hey, we gave you money to develop a hotel. They want even some wanted to wanted to commandeer commandeer the hotel. Bonnie take it away bonding that crazy sicko communist wanted to grab hotels I bike dot com during this hotel on behalf of all these disgusting vagrant. So we're going to be vomiting and defecating over the rooms bought a whack job and now, and now you know what? We should get their way to file a lawsuit freedom of Information Act on a list of all the hotels that. Participant participated because you know probably a lot of just cheap you know rundown motels that were going to go out of business. Anyway they were desperate to know. I don't WanNa go in them and I don't care about their feelings. I don't want to go into the lockdown reduced their business to near nothing. Hey, I'm not going in there. My Body is not gonna lay on a bedspread that some filthy homeless guy laid on I don't care how many times they watched it. Same thing with carpeting I never believed they clean hotel linens are. or or ranch. So that's the inside room. They don't clean. You think really clean the For covers in the SOFA as the carpeting. Not, believe they clean any of that now and it's in a hotel. Recently, it was a nice one to. And What was that time my shoes? So my eyes were lower and I looked at the comforter in the comfort of cover and I thought three bloodstains on my. I know that don't come out. It doesn't mean they didn't wash it. Blood is hard to go nobody but if there's a bloodstain. There were little they were like. Knife flood's GONNA throw the comforter out. That's gotta be automatic bloodstains means the comfort of goes that doesn't sit well with customers that's disgusting. Anyway. This is a couple of comments here from people behind the program apparently. One of the lead people says that it was because hotels didn't participate level they expected. Yes. Because most normal led to the commandeering cry. Yeah. Because Bush normal people if they find out, we'll never use the hotel again and that's why I wanNA public list of the hotels. I. Think we should know this. This was a public program. And public money was used I want to know what hotels profited, what what was the price for their reputation. What was the price to have a lot of us never go into that hotel for the rest of our lives if They get for that. He's the head of the county's homeless initiative. He said the limiting factor was the number of hotel and motel owners willing to participate. He claims twenty thousand properties expressed interest but there were disputes over price qualms by insurance carriers and lenders imagine and as John. Just. Touched on concerns about branding. That's not why you go to a five. Star luxury hotel. To have. Filth, bag? Shoot. Heroin. Up. On on the same comforter that you're going to be laying on or your kids will be laying odd good for what I mean. That is so crazy. You WanNa hear what I heard. I I can't reveal the source, but here's the next Homeless what should I call it a controversy. Controversy. You remember they they stuffed. Probably Thousands of homeless people into park and recreation centers around Los Angeles. Yes. All right and and I guess they use the gymnasiums or whatever rooms they had inside the REC centers and laid out cots and the homeless were supposed to live in there. Well, you know they got served food every day right and they even got laundry service twice a day seriously our tax money went for this. But in doing so they blew through the parks and recreation budget until twenty, twenty two. That's how much money they blew on this, and now they're going to the parks and recreation workers and saying that raise they were scheduled to get your contract. You'RE NOT GONNA get it. We're canceling that race and there's there's GonNa be give backs. And there's going to be layoffs. And it's GonNa. Be All kinds of financial pain because the budgets blown because they spent it on food and room service and laundry? Service. And the Union for the park and REC workers is beyond test. And You may see a strike commander that. A listen to this. The La Times got some data on project room key. So you may wonder what happened to the people who have left the hotels and motels six hundred people checked into the thirty eight hotels and motels have moved out of those ten percent permanent housing allegedly three percent to another shelter twenty percent back to the street. But the rest you may wonder, well, that's only thirty three percent. Yeah, the restaurant accounted for. Heine Marston with one of these. While they're in the street said. We always just don't know which street Heidi Marston said that this is what happens. It's all about the curfew. PM They get and they get lonely and they rebel. And Schedules. A complete failure as predicted, they blew a lot of money. They soiled a lot of hotels. And it improved nobody's life here. Now, this vast majority are back on the street. Injecting their heroin drinking their booze defecating on the sidewalk again. And this is the disconnect that we always talk about these people with these homeless organizations in these politicians think all they need is a roof over their heads. No they have dysfunctions and problems. They don't want your rules schedules they prefer their dysfunctions in their problems and the street. You can't just treat them like anybody else's down on their luck. It's got to be a very specific set of problems have to be addressed first before you try to stick them in a hotel room forced mental health treatment forced drug treatment forced alcohol treatment. If you don't do those three things depending on the addiction or the mental problem if you don't do that. Nothing else is working nothing they're going to be. Out either has to be way to keep them. They're accepting the help they gotta stay with. It got locked the door you got you got to charge him with some kind of crime and penalty is you stay in there until you're off their?

I'd forgotten about this is back in June. LAPD officer, but they move Matthew Garcia. Sued a lawsuit claiming he'd been sexually harassed by a long time adviser. To Garcetti. We had fun with this one on the story broke. He made crude sexual comments in untouched Garza inappropriately and Garcetti laugh. That's the allegation of Garza who worked the mayor of security detail. Now. All the detail for years and claims that this behavior. He had to endure for years and he he claims sometimes it happened Garcetti's presence and Garcetti apparently did not care about the Hus- style work environment when you consider Mr Progressive Mayor Yoga Pants. Who I'm sure though I can't remember everything he said after the me too long. It's like you know employees you have to endure type of we have a special hotline dedicated you call. If you feel like you're being subjected to unwanted behavior, they're all fakes and phonies the latter they lecture the more dirt they have in their closet. And Garcetti he's got. He's got. Dirt in there. Yeah. Well, the guy's name is Rick Jacobs and the update today is that the city of La is going to fight this lawsuit. Aggressively apparently. And I guess 'cause Garza rather because while they're both city employees still extent is because the city has a lot of tax money to us and you try to bury the the he's just a cop he doesn't have that much money has guys are going to compete financially against the city and What they want do is get this thing thrown out before there's testimony in court or too many depositions that really nail. Matching if Garcetti under oath. Has, to tell. Whether he heard all this or not and laughed at it or not, and if he doesn't tell the truth, he commits perjury. Now. These were supposedly incidents that took place on road. Trips. Arizona New Hampshire I guess Garcetti thought he was going to be president. Repeatedly of so according to Garza, Jacobs inappropriate comments talked about sex. Hugged him. Massage shoulders wouldn't leave him alone basically although this looks like a five year period. And they're saying that he never He said that the city is saying plaintiff alleges these incidents occurred since twenty fourteen yet plaintiff never reported such alleged conduct to the city. Plaintiff should've taken advantage of procedures to address sexual harassment in the workplace. By this Jacob, Guy? He's on the board of directors of the Mayor's Fund for Los. Angeles and we've talked about these funds haven't we? Oh Yeah. Nonprofit that raises money for Garcetti backed cause. Betcha. There's a lot of real estate developers who you contribute to the mayor's fund, and then when the contracts go up to build those seven, hundred, thousand dollar palaces but the vagrants. Oh did he contribute to the Mayor's Fund Rick? Please tell me wreck. Would you put your pants on? Yup the back door way for access to make political donations to a candidate your. Garcetti has some terrible sex scandal which he lies about and daddy and. Indulged all this behavior house he running for for senator or President or whatever the hell he thinks he should be Angelenos. Yeah. He's got to pretend this never happened, and so they're just going to crush this poor cop with a ton of lawyers in a big six or seven figure legal bill. All right. It's conway time. Isn't it?
