Sebastian and Steve Bannon Discuss the Personnel Issue

"I come on your show and I interview you, I try and ask you about the personality issue because it's not a joke, you know it as well as I do when we walked into The White House, there were less than 20 of us in senior positions who were true maga understood what America first meant and wanted to be loyal to the vision of those who elected the president. Half of those people aren't going to come back because they're sane. So you say people are working on personnel. I've talked to Mark Meadows. I've talked to others. I don't see real traction being built on personnel to fill those 4000 positions am I wrong, Steve? Yeah, thanks. I think tell me what's happening. No, I think behind the scenes, you've got many of these groups. You've got this one group that's been started that former Trump people and people that are associated with Trump that are getting people and kind of verticals and expertise in their expertise areas to work on this. Look, it's not, do we have to fill the 4000 billets? And let's just take, I think the 3000s that are non Senate confirmed. The fillers 3000 billets. Do we have 3000 people signed up right now and doing this? The answer is no. But are there people that were building to this? Yes. And I don't think, I think we'll have the, I don't think we're going to have a problem, Seb in putting landing teams, landing teams, beachhead teams, and fully putting in the different cabinet positions and not just that, walking in with you guys in a full contingent, either The Pentagon, if you go there, the intelligence agency, if you go there or most importantly, the National Security Council. So no, on that level, I feel that we're getting the work done. And remember, you're going to have more and more people sign up and come on board when it looks more evident to some outsiders that president Trump is not only going to win the nomination but going to rewind The White House.

Ginni Thomas says she regrets post-election texts to Meadows

"Interview transcripts released by House investigators are providing further insight into the January 6th, 2021 insurrection in what led up to it. Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas, and a longtime conservative activist, told the panel she regrets the text she sent to then White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, urging him to stand firm with then president Trump as he falsely claimed widespread fraud. She told the panel, I would take them all back if I could. And Trump lawyer Christina bob testified that Republican senator Lindsey Graham asked Trump advisers for evidence of fraud that he could champion. Bob quote scram is saying, just give me 5 dead voters. Bob says he did nothing with the information he was given in Graham voted on January 6th to certify Biden's victory, the January 6th committee conducted more than 1000 interviews.

"meadows" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"Hey everyone, I'm Abby Phillip anchor and senior political correspondent for CNN in for David chalian, and this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know about politics for Wednesday, December 28th. The January 6th House select committee has dropped a new batch of witness transcripts. Just when we thought we'd heard it all, we now have even more detail about how Donald Trump's associates tried to conceal information in the days before and after January 6th. The January 6th committees most recently released interviews from former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson provide even more information about former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows actions during that time. Now, as a reminder, Hutchinson delivered some of the most damning and powerful testimony against Trump during the committee's public hearings that were televised over the last year, and Hutchinson said that she saw Meadows burning documents in his office fireplace around a dozen times. Once or twice per week. Between December 2020 and mid January 2021. So before and after the January 6th insurrection. Hutchinson said she didn't know what the documents were or whether they were required by law to be preserved, though most, if not all documents that were produced during Trump's time in office would have been subject to presidential records laws. But she did say that at least twice, she watched Meadows burn documents after he had meetings with Republican congressman Scott Perry, a Pennsylvania Republican. Now that's a key piece of information because Perry is linked to the efforts to use the Justice Department to overturn the 2020 election. Now, for obvious reasons, a president's chief of staff burning documents is both not a good look and possibly illegal, but the former U.S. attorney Michael Moore said a lot of these transcripts don't provide a lot that directly pin this new information to Trump. Certainly is a visual that could paint a picture to a jury of a desperate chief of staff, throw a document in a White House fireplace. Again, I don't know that it gets to Trump. He may have smoke around him. I'm not sure that the flames reach you. Certainly from the Met as fireplace. Hutchinson also said that Meadows told White House staffers at the time to keep some of these meetings off the books and keep them in a close hold, meaning that likely most of them wouldn't be listed in The White House diary, which is a public record of the meetings that the president would have had while in office, and she couldn't recall exactly which meetings he was trying to conceal. But it is still notable that he was trying to keep some of what was going on in the aftermath of the election and before January 6th, private. From Hutchinson's interviews, we also learned more about her falling out with her Trump backed lawyer. Now, Stephan passantino was Hutchinson's first attorney, and he was paid through Trump allies. And we already learned last week that Hutchinson eventually did get herself a new lawyer after passantino had encouraged her to actually mislead the committee. She stressed that he didn't tell her to actually lie, but he did encourage her to downplay her role in The White House and say that she just simply didn't recall certain events. She said that the final straw was when he told her to stop cooperating with the committee even if it risked a contempt of Congress charge. Passantino has maintained that he represented Hutchinson ethically. But these new transcripts paint a more detailed picture of the divide between these two. According to the transcripts, they bickered often with passantino trying to correct her testimony at times, and in one notable instance that was centered on rioters chanting, quote, hang Mike Pence on January 6th, Hutchinson said that she overheard Mark Meadows say that Trump thought that maybe perhaps the chance were justified. The transcripts show passantino jumped in and said, quote, I don't want to interrupt nor do I want to shape what you're saying at all here. But then he told lawmakers that he believed, quote, the president said that perhaps they're right. After Hutchinson got her new lawyer, they corrected some of the things that she'd previously said when passantino was present. Hutchinson also told the committee about several discussions at The White House related to the conspiracy theory QAnon. She told them that congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene brought up QAnon several times, including in front of Trump, Hutchinson also said that Trump aide Peter Navarro would bring her materials about the election to pass on to her boss, Mark Meadows. CNN's Kristen Holmes explains. She says, at one point I had sarcastically said, oh, is this from your QAnon Friends, Peter? Because Peter would talk to me frequently about his QAnon Friends. He said, have you looked into it yet, cast, I think they point out a lot of good ideas. You really need to read this. Make sure the chief sees it. And it was going all the way up at some points to the president. The DoJ is currently prosecuting Navarro for not complying with the January 6th committee subpoena. But besides Hutchinson, the committee also released testimony from several other White House officials. We already knew about Trump's anger with former vice president Mike Pence from the committee's hearings, but White House aide John McIntyre described more details about Trump's shift toward pets. He recalled hearing Trump tell pants Michael do the right thing and do what you think is right, Mike during meetings. And then, as we know, Pence refused to overturn the 2020 election on January 6th, something that he didn't even have the power to do, and Mac and T told the panel that after the insurrection, he heard Trump say negative things about patents, saying things like, quote, you know, effin pence or whatever. Another interesting part of the newly released testimony came from former Trump White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere. Deere told the committee that he heard gossip in the week after the 2020 election that Trump was actually thinking about conceding. Dear said that Trump was even strongly considering inviting the bidens to The White House. And when he was pressed about where he heard these rumors, dear said, he couldn't remember. But obviously, Trump did not concede to Biden and still hasn't opting instead to try to overturn the 2020 election, which led to the violent insurrection on January 6th.

"Back. It's Friday. It's asked doctor G anything. It's a Second Amendment Friday special in studio guests. Joe digenova and Victoria than sing. So let's take what we're witnessing with the revelations from Palo Alto from us to the next level. We have a new Congress sworn in in just a couple of weeks time. Is anything going to change? And there are actually other yet. They haven't decided that who the speaker is going to be. And for the four or 5 people who are and I really like most of them, who are fighting McCarthy, now I'm not a fan of McCarthy, but who are you going to replace him with? Where are you going to get your 218 votes that you need? I think it's pretty clear that it's going to be Kevin. Does that mean it's going to be the same old same old that subpoena here, a subpoena there, milk toast investigations? There was never a subpoena here in a subpoena there. That was the whole problem. There was 14 is under Paul Ryan. And his successors. I talked to Mark Meadows. Johnson said, don't you guys know how to go ahead and hang on? Lindsey Graham promised us one for 6 years. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Well, the Senate is a very different rule rules. Usually the minority gets to also decide, but the Democrats are going to change it. So will there be any ramifications for what we're seeing? I think that both comer and Jim Jordan are very serious people, and they do not want to embarrass themselves. They've talked about this for years. They have to produce, and they know it. And I expect, I don't like this talk about we're inviting people into testify. I don't know why they're not subpoenaing people right away. This is nonsense. They're wasting time.

So first of all, was the text message authentic and if it was, what did you mean by that? Oh, yeah, it was authentic. It was a text between a good friend of mine, Mark, but at the time you realized the capital was invaded, the fact that Biden had stayed in his office had not campaigned based everything was breaking loose. You had the question about dominion. And I was frustrated and still frustrated. The questions that were there, then the questions now. Now, obviously, martial law wouldn't put into effect, but it was still upsetting time in the history of the country. And I did miss miss bell Marshall. That's my biggest problem with it.

Rep. Barry Loudermilk: Voting for Rep. Kevin McCarthy as House Speaker

"You falling out on all of this? Well, this is in a very interesting time right now because conservatives, even the freedom caucus is split on this. I've been supporting Kevin speaker and I will vote for him on the floor. And people are looking at it from a different angle. And it may be personal interaction that they've had in the past and Andy, Scott Perry, they're all good close friends of mine. And we differ from this. I mean, Marjorie Taylor Greene, she supporting Kevin for speaker. This is one of those that you're never going to someone who is in the same conservative arena I am to the level of conservatism that I hope is likely not going to get elected speaker because quite frankly the moderates within our conference are not going to vote for them. When I look at Kevin, because I've been serving with him for 8 years now, he is the most conservative of any of the Republican speakers that we have, but what I see in Kevin is he has opened up to the conservatives in Congress more than any of the other speakers have. He has gone out and put conservatives into positions of leadership like Jim Jordan on judiciary, Mark Meadows before he went to The White House. He was the ranking Republican on government oversight. And so it isn't always to me just what are the conservative how does the person rank up on conservative values to me, but are they open to give B and my voice a seat at the table to actually influence legislation to influence what's going forward?

You know, I created a 501c3 nonprofit national homicide families went through the IRS process that was not fun, but we got our approval. And then I went on exactly one fundraising call and it made me want to hurl and I realized I can't ask people for money even for really worthy causes. I was a public servant step for more than 30 years and I never had to ask one person for $1 in order for me to be a public servant. I can't start now by saying I want to run for office and be a public servant. So money, money, money, money, money, not in my DNA, unfortunately. Yeah. Well, that doesn't mean you still can't be appointed. What am I looking for? Oh, attorney general. Yeah. Okay, I'm just saying, that's not running. Okay, you were the, one of the many of us who you tweeted. So Donnie soprano and the boys got together at the bottom being golf club to sort through some problems. I mean, between this Sopranos scene on the golf course with no golfing going on. And this latest threat, he just said, what did he say? I think there's going to be a big trouble if I'm indicted. I mean, how much more explicit a threat of inciting violence could there be? Yeah, it'll be big trouble and boy will it be good trouble. And it's precisely the kind of trouble this country needs. We can not decline to charge somebody for their crime stuff for fear of how that person's associates or supporters will react. If that impacts our decision, who to indict, then the rule of law is truly dead. Let him threaten violence. Let Lindsey Graham threaten that there will be protests and there will be riots fine. Bring it on because some things are worth fighting for like the rule of law and the future of our democracy. Yep, absolutely. Finally, you tweeted our team justice members have been sending me pictures they took while attending Saturday night's event in D.C.. It was such a pleasure and a privilege to get to share the stage with Stephanie Miller and representative Raskin to share the legal issues of the day in our fight for justice. You just posted a clip of you and Jamie Raskin and we were, what I didn't get a chance to watch it yet, 'cause there was so much good stuff that happened. What was that particular exchange? Do you remember? Yeah, so that clip you and I and representative Raskin were talking about basically the deep injustice that's at play in America right now where the people that Donald Trump lied to and used that lie to urge them to attack the capitol. Those people are going to prison because they obey Donald Trump's commands and they fell for his lies. Donald Trump, the person who is most criminally responsible for the capital attack has a teen time later today. That's a deep injustice that needs to be remedied right now because we add on top of that stuff. The classified documents crimes at Mar-a-Lago, Trump had top secret materials national defense information, which is why this is an espionage act crime being investigated. And information about the nuclear capabilities and defenses of foreign countries and he has not been arrested by the Department of Justice for committing all of those most dangerous crimes that undermines the confidence in our federal government and in our rule of law. These things must be made right by the Department of Justice, not rocket science, just good government. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like what happens is we get overwhelmed. I think you and Jamie were talking about that Saturday night that, you know, in all of this new espionage stuff, you're like, Jamie's over there going, wait a minute. What about our crimes? What about the overthrow of the government in January 6th? I mean, and speaking of which, I mean, there are going to be starting again, obviously the J 6 committee wanted to ask you finally, what did you think of a lot of people speculating on what Zoe lofgren meant and also many Thompson, do you feel like they're saying they have recovered the missing Secret Service tax? Yeah, and I don't think they were ever missing in the first place. Let's just say they were, they were perhaps misplaced or mistaken about them all being permanently deleted or purged. So they clearly have lots and lots of text messages now. So the next logical question beyond what do they tell us about what the Secret Service and Mike Pence and Donald Trump and Mark Meadows were doing on January 5th and 6th and 7th. But why did the machinery of the Secret Service and DHS at least the former leadership of DHS try to lie about it and keep them from being viewed by Congress and inferentially the Department of Justice? That is the next investigative lead. They're going to have to follow. All right, you heard him. Starve stage screen. And LA sexy liberal. Go to sex in the world dot com. Thank you, honey.

"One of my favorite Instagram accounts people text me these images all the time. I actually don't go on Instagram. Is this awesome account about woke Jesus? So what it is is it's kind of a obviously a joke. It's a comedy account that's playing this idea of what would Jesus say if he was woke, the creator is Gabriel finocchio, he's a great American and boy, does he get a lot of people in Christian incorporated upset. Let me just focus on one of them. Let's focus on the last one here. For example, it says, if you promise not to talk about abortion or LGBTQIA, I'll bring celebrities to your church, woke Jesus deal. One of my other favorite ones here is Jesus praying and he says, father, please give me a blue check mark. Designer clothing, endless wealth, celebrity friends, a world where abortion is safe and legal and everybody is vax and LGBTQI ETC. Amen and a woman. Welcome Jesus. Gabe joins us right now. Welcome to the program. Hey Charlie, how are you? Good. I'm doing great. So tell us about this account that you run and then let's talk more broadly about wokeism in American Christianity. Thanks. Yeah, and thanks for having me on. Big fan of your show. Big fan of you. Thank you for what you're doing, what you've done. Thank you. And yeah, you're a hero. I'm not a great American, unfortunately. I'm Canadian. Oh, there you go. I wish I was a great two polite, that's why. Yeah, I just had to correct the record. I did have, I did have loyalist ancestors who unfortunately took land up in Canada during the Revolutionary War. But I'm trying to make amends. And so this is part of reparations. This is part of my, this is part of my repentance representing my family cowardly family lineage who are loyalists during the Revolutionary War. But anyway, so yeah, the woke account was just, you know, everybody's heard of things Jesus never said, right? And, you know, that was a big trend, you know, like a decade ago. But with the woke tidal wave that we experienced in like 2020, you know, I guess I was just, you know, hanging out one night. I think I was making some music with my brother in our studio and I was just like, you know, trying to kill time, really. And then I thought, you know what? Let's do some, let's do some things Jesus never said things, but then we'll just like tag this is woke Jesus, you know, things woke Jesus would say.

Mark Meadows: It's Time We Turn the Microscope on These Agencies

"Started this January 6th committee in the way it was founded was awful and terrible. But do you think it's a good idea, Mark, to start a special committee on, let's say, IRS oversight, not just have it be part of oversight, but actually start its own chartered committee to publish a report that doesn't happen very often, right? That happened, I think with Major League Baseball, maybe with after 9 11, JFK assassination, do you think that's a good idea to have a spin off committee to have oversight of these federal bureaucracies? Without a doubt. And I think if the leadership and the Republican side of the house is assuming that they take over or willing to spend the kind of dollars, they can spend a fraction of what's been spent on the January 6th committee and actually make a real impact. But if they're laser focused on the IRS, you know, listen, anybody who sees that they've just passed this and they're going to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. Listen, it's not about just going after the wealthy. It's going after the people that are tuned in right now. And candidly, every single aspect of your life will start to be under a microscope. And so I think it's time that we turn the microscope on these agencies and say that your accountable to the American people and having a committee that does it exactly that.

Talk about what it's like to retake a majority from the Democrats and how we need to act with urgency, but also focus on things that matter because we might have some bandwidth issues. We might not be able to take on every issue. Do you agree that IRS oversight and government overreach is something that this new Republican Congress, if we went back, which I think we will is something we should focus on. Well, I do think we'll win it back. It is not only what we have to focus on, but we have to focus on it in the first 100 days, Charlie. Here's the interesting thing is you don't have a honeymoon period when you take over the midterm and many of the members of Congress that have been serving over the last few years, they've never been in the majority. And so what all of a sudden happens is, is the committee staffs change. You go from having one third of the committee size to having two thirds of the budget for a committee staff. And so sometimes what happens is a Democrat staffer just takes off their hat and puts on a Republican hat. We don't need to be doing that. What we are doing, I know some of the work we're doing is trying to provide good staffers there. But here's you mentioned one other key point. A church commission kind of approach to oversight. Russ votes working on some of those outlines already. We're trying to make sure that the members of Congress have the tools together. But they need two things. They need the tools, but the other thing is they need the courage. If they think they're going to come to Washington, D.C. in the swamp is all of a sudden going to drain by itself. It's never happened before, even Donald Trump when he was working hard to drain the swamp as you and I both know what was happening is he was getting pushback within the administration, they will see that. We're electing some great people. I think it will be a number of people coming in with, I don't know that I see a huge red wave, but I certainly see a red majority and what people want or members that are committed to their constituents back home. I think Charlie, you would agree with me. We don't want them committed to you or me or anything else. We want them committed to the American people. And if they don't represent their district instead of special interests here in Washington, D.C., it'll go well.

"Meadows texted back, saying quote, I will stand firm. We will fight until there is no fight left. Our country is too precious to give up on. Thanks for all you do. 9 days later, on November 19th, Jenny Thomas Tex Meadows, quote, sounds like Sydney and her team are getting inundated with evidence of fraud. Make a plan, release the kraken and save us from the left taking America down. The Sydney that you need Thomas is referring to is Sidney Powell. She's the attorney who worked on the Trump aligned lawsuits and was subpoenaed this January by the January 6th committee for a deposition. On November 24th, Meadows promised Thomas he wasn't done battling on former president Trump's behalf. He said quote, this is a fight of good versus evil. Evil always looks like the Victor until the king of king's triumphs do not grow weary in well doing. The fight continues. I have staked my career on it. Well, at least my time in D.C. on it. That was November 24th. This is now a full three weeks after the election. Ginny Thomas was clearly not happy with the lack of progress and wrote to Meadows on that same day, texting quote, I can't see Americans swallowing the obvious fraud. Just going with one more thing with no freaking consequences. The whole coup and now this we just cave to people wanting Biden to be anointed, many of us can't continue the GOP charade. Just to show you again how outside of the sort of Republican establishment wing of the party Jenny Thomas, she is really from that much more conservative grassroots and sometimes conspiracy theory fueled wing of the party. There's only one text that the committee has from January 2021. In its four days after the insurrection, January 10th. Ginny Thomas clearly is not happy with Mike Pence as we know many conservatives who were supporting the attempt to overturn the result of a legitimate election have said Thomas wrote in a text to Meadows, quote we are living through what feels like the end of America. Most of us are disgusted with the VP, meaning pens, and are in a listening mode to see where to fight with our teams. Those who attacked the capitol are not representative of our great teams of patriots for DJT. Donald John Trump, amazing times, the end of liberty. As you may know, Ginny Thomas recently revealed that she attended the pro Trump rally on the ellipse on the mall in Washington that preceded the march up to the capitol and the attack on January 6th, but she says she played no role in the planning of the events of that day. Now, justice Thomas, who, by the way, was released from the hospital today. He had been admitted to the hospital several days ago, spent all of this week at the hospital for an unspecified infection. As for that possible conflict of interest, this is where it gets tricky because it is really up to him as to which cases he recuses himself from sitting on from deciding is the way that the system is set up, and so while it may seem like an apparent conflict of interest, if justice Thomas doesn't see it that way, he very well may continue to hear arguments in and help write decisions and vote on cases that involve the 2020 election even though his wife was clearly intimately involved in an effort to try and overturn that legitimate election. That's it for today's political briefing. Thanks so much for listening. And please take a moment and be sure to follow us wherever you get your podcasts.

"The House select committee investigating the January 6th capitol riot is in possession of some explosive text messages between Mark Meadows and the wife of a Supreme Court Justice. Now you know by now that there was no widespread election fraud in 2020, I know that former president Trump and his supporters continue to claim that the election was stolen. There is no evidence to back that up. But these almost three dozen messages that CNN has now reviewed show how convinced some conservatives were that indeed, the 2020 election was stolen and that it should be overturned and how willing. Members of Trump's inner circle were to entertain those ideas and theories. So these text messages are between Mark Meadows, who was a former Republican member of Congress from North Carolina, but at the time of these text messages, he was chief of staff to Donald Trump, and we are talking about the period here between November 2020 and January 2021 to just a few days after the insurrection. So between Mark Meadows, The White House chief of staff and Virginia Thomas, who is known as Ginny. She is the wife of Supreme Court Justice, clarence Thomas, and she is a well-known, longtime conservative activist. Now the fact that she happens to be married to justice clarence Thomas have folks on the left and some legal, ethical observers claiming that there may be some conflict of interest here for justice Thomas when it comes to adjudicating cases about the 2020 election, but we'll get to that later. And if you're scratching your head and thinking, how did the January 6th committee get these text messages from Mark Meadows? I thought Trump's whole world was sort of not cooperating with the committee. Remember there was a period of time when Mark Meadows was cooperating with the committee. That has since stopped, but in that time he turned over thousands of text messages. And we should note that these text messages that the committee has unearthed may not be the sum total of all the communication between Thomas and Meadows, nor May it be everything that the committee even knows. This is just what we've learned of now. Just to remind you, election day in 2020 was November 3rd, the winner of the election was not declared until Saturday.

"So Mark how could Republicans screw this up? It just looks so good. If it goes wrong, basically the other way the question is, what must we do to make sure this continues and what must we make sure that does not happen if that makes sense? It does make perfect sense. Here's what we need to do is two things. We can't screw it up. And by screw it up, here's how we would do that. All of a sudden think that now because we have polls that are leading our way that we need to somehow moderate. I can tell you I saw this in a race with congressman Dan bishop in North Carolina. He was in the polls. He was actually behind some many of the advisers were saying, you know, distance yourself from Donald Trump. You're in the Charlotte area. And yet that was not who he was. He was actually more of someone who was willing to embrace not only the America first agenda, but all the conservative values that you and I hold dear. And so, you know, I told him I said, you know, it's better that you lose engaged and embracing something that you like and that you believe in. Then it is to pretend like you're somebody else because people will vote for those that are authentic. That's why Donald Trump got elected to be president of the United States. They wanted somebody who was authentic. And so here's the candidates need to be authentic. They need to be transparent. But the other part of it is they need to have a business plan. They can't just show up and think that a good stump speech is going to work it. They've got to actually work a plan. How are they going to do the outreach? They need to do more podcasts, honestly, where you're talking policy, real policy, like you and I do right here where they actually engage. How else can we make sure that it happens is my good friend Jim Jordan has a book, says, do what you said you would do. You know, it's a great book, but it's also a great concept. When you campaign, you actually have to actually work in Washington, D.C. that same way. And we're starting not only to see that from so many House members. But we're also seeing that when you do what you said you would do, the American people were rewarded. Even some Democrats who don't agree with your policy admired the fact that you're willing to say what you believe and act on. I will also add that we have to make sure Republicans do not broker an Amnesty deal this spring. And that's in the book. That's in the cards. I'm hearing it. And that would be a disaster. I mean, it would be the dumbest thing they could possibly do. And also, I want to end with people or emailing us like crazy right now. Freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Mark, what about election integrity? Are we seeing some improvements? What's going on with that? How can we trust that they're not going to do the shenanigans again? Well, we need to still stay engaged. And they're right to be emailing you in a big way. I can tell you that a number of us are working on election integrity. I continue to work on election integrity to make sure that not only does your vote count, but that that ballot is sacred from your hand to the ballot box. And what we've done is, sadly, we've kind of ignored it. We've looked at past elections and we some are encouraging just to move on. We need to make sure there's an audit process that not just for the states that we want to call into question. But for every single state that so when somebody votes that they can make sure that their vote is legitimate and that it counts. And I can tell you there's real progress being made, but we've got a long way to go, Charlie, and the work is not done. So we need to be vigilant leading up to 2022 and 2024 on election day..

You know if i were to ask you an and i think there's a lot to work with in what i just described as this Beautiful suite of things you are involved with in your life. But if i were to ask you distill that down owen into an essential mission statement for you and your own personal gardening practice in this world at this exact timing your life. What would that be. It would be a connection to the natural connection to the landscape and trying to facilitate that both for myself my clients and really anyone else i can help with. In that regard you can see that in all of the things that you are doing. And and so before. We dive into that let. Let's go back and let's have you share with listeners. Some of your early life sort of plant story and some of the people in places in plants that grew you into a man for whom this would be your calling so desire to connect people to the landscape and help them connect to nature. Really comes out of in many ways. What is very different but also privileged in my opinion upbringing. Because i grew up really close to the natural world and my parents moved to central maine in early seventies. They were part of the back to the land movement and we lived in a house without electricity half mile from our nearest neighbour and it was in a pretty rural area. Weren't many people around. My parents gardened pretty seriously. They grew a lot of our food and my mother was also serious. Perennial gardner as well. So i was around gardening that was also around nature. Fortunately that suited me. Because i have a strong sort of interest in implants in the journey. I didn't really understand the degree to which that was the case when i was a kid But as a about older and i went to school For landscape architecture for my undergraduate degree you know. I realized more.

Yes because i know. When i talk talking to you i will say things. I don't you know. I know well was aware that to going into this and i didn't want it and that's why like i wanted to talk about you as a father. Not so much you as a divorce ex husband. And so i don't i i'm not interested in. I mean i am interested in that once this once. We stopped recording. Let's go let's let her rip But no but i do think i. I'm always interested. Because i talked to so many people that are in show business on this thing and so many people that are comedians on this thing and we ended up talking a lot about about you know show business in about work stuff about you know i in improv class and then i you know gotta bunch of commercials. I'm way more interested in like the fact that you're an established comedy person. Your family broke up. You move to chicago and you made it and that's a sacrifice you know that's a sacrifice to be with your kids and there's a lot of showbiz assholes that live you know in their own minds that wouldn't have done that that would have been like are also see my boys a couple times a year you know and i think that's to your credit you know thanks bye and it it make it gives you the perspective it sort of it is because it is limiting. It's like this stuff that you miss out on career wise and family wise. There's events yeah the kids have to miss out on because it work. Yeah 'cause work.

And there's no time for anything else saw family when you hear pretty much i mean at least in this one and my. I didn't bring my kids. Because i feel like when i go by myself i feel like yeah i just i literally just let people dragged me around you like to softball games or to you know you know to hang pictures at my mom's house or you know. I took her out to dinner and after dinner. She's like she's like just casually drops as i'm dropping off. Oh i got a new television and it needs to be boxed and hung like okay. You know anyone can do that on. Yeah like can you. Yeah and it's like that's an hour that's like an hour chore and it's the it's like the kind of chore that makes my head poor sweat like i don't sweat anywhere else but it's just that maddening kind of little household like putting together a kia furniture.

I can go the way over there. Your dad used to do comedy there. Do your kids care. I mean they live in chicago. So do they care about all of your chicago comedy past. It's weird man because like occasionally they will like my my son. My youngest son had a field trip to second city when he was in like Probably ninth grade or something like that and the.
