"All right, America, welcome back. It's me, rich valdes, at rich valdes on all the social media average valves with an S and I just put out a couple of stories if you want to take a look at those on social media. Or if you want to see some pictures from my trip to seaside, those are on Instagram. You can check those out as well. Anyway, I want to talk about a couple of headlines that come across my desk here from our producers who sent me some stories. We've got Alaska snow crabs have disappeared. Where they went is a mystery to one story that's going on. Don't know if we're going to get into that in depth. But here's an interesting one. A California man was recently recognized for breaking the world's record for the most ghost peppers eaten one minute. Gregory foster was recognized on Monday by the Guinness Book of World Records for eating 17 ghost peppers. Also known as bhut jolokia. And he did that in 60 seconds. Now, you might remember when the D.C. mayor Miriam muriel muriel, muriel Bowser, said I need the National Guard because they're bringing busloads of illegal immigrants into Washington, D.C. and we're overwhelmed. And she wanted to support from the National Guard. And that didn't go over well. They said, nope, nope. Not happening. Anyway, she asked again and they've denied her yet again for a second time depending on the night of request. On Monday by Washington, D.C. mayor muriel Bowser to activate the National Guard to assist with thousands of migrants who have been arriving in the nation's capital in recent months. I think that's just really funny, but that's exactly what happened. Now, that's that. We know about the ghost peppers. We know about the National Guard, and we know about your calls. 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo is the phone number. Let us go to, let's see who was it. There was somebody here that I wanted to say, oh, there was big story before I did that. This is the biggest headline here 4.9 million illegal aliens have crossed into the United States in the last 18 months since Biden took office. This is a big headline that came out today, or yesterday, excuse me. And I thought this was a big deal. 4.9 million. It's a lot more than what many have been estimating. And this was reported in the epic times. And I thought, this is something we've got to talk about. Anyway, let us continue. Let's go to guild who actually he's in the Philippines, but he lived in Mexico. Gil, welcome. Yes, I used to live in Mexico and as I think I told you I was abducted by aliens. From Mexicans. But I wanted to talk, I wanted to talk about Dennis Rodman. Dennis Rodman is kind of like an unofficial representative of the United States. He's going to go to Russia to try to get the basketball player, the lady basketball player. Brittany grinder. Yes, Brittany griner. But you know, a dentist is a New Jersey guy. I'm sure you know that. No, I actually didn't know that. I didn't know that. Yeah, he was born in New Jersey, his father was in the air force at McGuire Air Force Base. Oh, wow. And then his father, well, his interesting story. His father was transferred here when we had an Air Force Base at Clark airfield, and he abandoned his family and took his discharge and his retirement here and owned a bar with girls and all of that stuff. And he's passed now, but Dennis had made he had reconciled with his dad. But he's going to go to Russia to try to get this grinder release. And I thought that that was interesting and it deserved deserved dementia. Yeah, fair enough. I mean, I know he got involved last time with some of our negotiations. I don't think he's ever really brought anything solid to the table in terms of his international diplomacy. But he's an entertaining guy. So he's got the interesting looks and whatnot. And he's always been a fan of Trump's, which I found interesting. I remember him from being on the apprentice. So I'm looking forward to seeing what Dennis Rodman brings to the table. And he looks good in a dress too, but that's why I meant by interesting outfits. I didn't know how to describe that. But yeah, Dennis Rodman's interesting. Now, do you have any cross shaped peers in your neck of the Woods? Not that I'm aware of there's a lot of crosses. I mean, this is the most Christian country in the world. About 86% Catholic, 7% Muslim, and the other percentage are other Christian denominations. And it's an interesting place to live. I work with the Jesuits. I work with the sisters of missionary charity missionary. They're the ones associated with Mother Teresa. And I also work with the sisters of St. Vincent de Paul because they all run orphanages and we have a ministry here. I have a friend who sends me money every month and we provide refrigerators and freezers for the orphanage. So when they get food donations, they can they can preserve the food. I mean, we don't have enough money that we can really make a difference as far as buying food in this type of thing. But we make our difference by giving refrigerators and freezers to orphanages so they can preserve the food that they have. Excellent, well, thank you Gil, I appreciate your thoughts and your call as well. Nice to hear from you. And we're going to get to the rest of your calls straight ahead. The producer is in my ear telling me, you got to go. So we're coming right back to wrap this thing up. We got a couple more calls I want to get to and a few more thoughts I want to

D.C. Mayor Bowser Calls for National Guard to Deal With Migrant Crisis

"Gotta give credit to governor Greg Abbott out of Texas also Doug ducey out of Arizona. You know, a couple of months ago, the governor said fine. Biden's not going to do anything, we're going to start loading up illegals onto buses, and we're going to send him to Washington, Washington, D.C.. So far, more than 4000 illegals have been dumped in the nation's capital, and this breaking news from the NBC station there in D.C., the mayor, muriel Bowser, another Democrat, she's calling up the National Guard, she's activating the National Guard to help with all of the illegals that are arriving in D.C.. She says it's a humanitarian crisis. And it's reached a tipping point. They're going to be using the D.C. armory as a processing center. You know what? I say, I say at this point, send even more buses. Maybe Abbott and doocy can call their fellow Republican governors and we can commandeer school buses, and we can just have caravans, just, I mean, just like trains, just sending thousands and thousands of illegals to Washington and then on to Delaware and then on to Pelosi's district in San Francisco. I think this is a brilliant strategy here. And by the way, Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida. Do not be surprised about this guy. Don't be surprised by this guy. You know what's going to happen? Desantis is going to put out the National Guard on the Florida border and he's not going to let those buses through because that's been the whole point they're threatening to send all the illegals down to Miami. Desantis isn't going to play like that. That's fascinating story. We'll keep you updated on that. All

"D. C is making yet another change to its mask mandate for fully vaccinated people Mayor Muriel Bowser, reversing an indoor mass guidance she issued just last night. Earlier, Bowser stated that fully vaccinated people could shed their masks while walking through common areas of their apartments, condos or co ops fully vaccinated. People also allowed to enter businesses without masks all those of the portions of the Friday night order that were reversed this afternoon. Under today's order, fully vaccinated people can on Lee shed their masks indoors at small private gatherings. New guidance from the CDC says vaccinated people can safely remove their masks out. Doors unless they're at a crowded event. In a one on one interview, Dr Anthony Fauci broke down the announcement with W. T. O P s Meghan Cloherty. The risk of getting infected outdoors is very, very low, and I passed people being on the C and O canal or in my neighborhood, and you see them alone without anybody within 100 yards of them wearing a mask. It's a step in the right direction. But if I'm vaccinated, shouldn't I be able to do more than just the outside without a mask on? I think a lot of people are wondering when I'm going to be able to doom or inside, you know, it's really going to depend on two things. The level of virus dynamics in your community and the relative number of people that are vaccinated.

"Hero shows President Trump went to Kenosha, and the message was pretty obvious, but the media decided to ignore it. Anyway. On the one side, you have the belief that America is inherently a good place and on the other, you have a belief that America is inherently bad place. No Trump may not understand. The deep roots of American philosophy, history or culture that I talk about my book how to destroy America in three easy steps, but he does have a gut level feeling that America is inherently a pretty good place. And the Democrats have about level feeling that America is, in essence, a pretty horrible place when they pay lip service to the declaration of Independence is not because they believe the declaration of Independence embodies true American values. It's because they believe that the declaration of Independence is as Nicole Hannah Jones has described it a live one written They believe that the founders were racist. They believe that it's time to get rid of American history because American history is replete with cruelty and violence. There's a reason why a D C committee recommended stripping the names of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Francis Scott Key and others from city government buildings. Committee reporting to D.

They recommended either moving, tearing down or re contextualizing The Washington Monument. So great. We'll just pick up the entire giant thing and we'll just move it somewhere Perfect. Then the White House rebuked the Bowser administration, and they removed the recommendations dealing with federal monuments. On Tuesday evening, the White House statement called Muriel Bowser erratically liberal mayor of Washington, D C, which is true. I mean, she literally spent city resource is to paint the block with the slogan Black Lives matter, then renamed Black Lives Matter Plaza, which is just I'm sorry, absurd. She said she thought they said she ought to be ashamed for even suggesting revisions to the monuments. Listen to how The Washington Post describes this Revisions to the marble monuments dedicated to presidents who were in slavers. Okay? If that's what you learned, as like the chief important thing about Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, you're doing American wrong. White House and President Trump believes these places should be preserved, not torn down, respected, not hated and passed on for generations to come. So Mayor Bowser pulled down the 24 page report, and they shrank into 23 pages.
