"Those pop up with sub stacks and things of that nature. Have you ever looked into that? Yes, I have investigated, and I'm probably going to do this in 2023, homeschool newsletters, not something I thought about when I launched the show, but it turns out there's a sizable market there and a possible market for me to sell other products where I can tie in some of the episodes into modules about ancient history, science, whatever, and use the shows that I've already done to help do that. I'm a member of mensa and mensa has a newsletter, so I've inquired with them about buying like a three month run in their newsletter. And I think that would be a good target demographic for me. So yes, I am looking at it, but I'm not looking at podcasting newsletters. I think promoting your show to other podcasters, unless you have a podcasting show like you do, is probably not worth the effort for most people. Well, when I think about it now, after I asked the question, it makes more sense to advertise on a podcast because those people already know how to listen to a podcast. The biggest benefit I've seen of newsletters is that you can get pretty good rates, you know, you have to look at how many people get the newsletter and then the open rate and then probably from that you're going to get a 1% click through, but if you know what the value of a subscriber is and that is an exercise I encourage everybody to go through because if you don't know that number off the top of your head, it's very difficult to spend money acquiring new subscribers. But once you know what the value is, then you know how much you can spend and still have it pay off for you. So if I had a, I know there's a one homeschool newsletter that I looked at, they have, I think it was a quarter million people on their list. They have like a 20% open rate or 15% open rate, and then figure calculate 1% of that. Then you can figure out whether it's worth your time. And I'll probably pull the trigger on that, like I said, sometime next year, early next year, as well as possibly doing something with mensa. And I'm always looking for new opportunities. One of the things I found, and again, I never thought of this, I started a Facebook group, and I had guys telling me I'm a truck driver. And I listened to your show, and it's like going to truck driver university. So just like I started the completionist club, I started this gimmick called truck driver university. And I've even thought about well, you know those like flying J or those big truck stuff? Well, maybe at some point, I don't know if I do this right away. I could do advertising in those places, have a QR code or something, you know, near the truck driver lounge or something like that. Maybe that's something I work and you can just attach the QR code to some sort of tracking URL and figure it out, because these are people with tons of time on their hands. A lot of them are far smarter than people think, or they're at least curious. And this is a great way for them to spend time. So yeah, I'm open to all those sorts of things. And I think especially if you have a very niche podcast and I don't targeting the newsletters, the websites of whatever that community is that may already exist is a great way to promote the show. The other idea I had today was there's this pod like go to every Wednesday because there's a lot of professors that go there and I like talking to them and they like talking to me. I could get coasters at a bar with a QR code and because a lot of people have said they enjoy my show because it helps them on trivia night. Bingo. To just buy the coasters for a bar and just spread them around and do it that way. So I'm open to all those things. And as my show grows, I've always called it the flywheel approach. When I started, I was in a really tough shape because I, like I said, I literally lost 95% of my income in March of 2020. And it took a while that first month, like I said, I had 6000 downloads for a daily show. So it wasn't a lot, it was like 200 a day. But as I incrementally got a little money coming in, I put all of it into promotion and marketing. And then the show grew and I had a little more come in and I put it all in the marketing. And I just kept doing that. Kind of spit in the wheel faster and faster and faster. And I mentioned, I probably spent over $10,000 this year in promotion. I expect to double or triple that next year. And I'll probably double and triple that the year after. Until I get to a point where I really believe the show can be doing a 100,000 downloads an episode within three years. But to do that, it's going to require an investment. But I also know that that investment, even if I have to spend a $100,000 over the course of several years to do it, I believe that it will come back many fold from that. I heard on one of the shows when I was doing my research and correct me if I'm wrong and I'm not trying to get in your wallet, but you inked a ten figure deal? Is that correct? Oh, a couple of them at this point. Nice. Well, one of the interesting things about the way I do my show is that because it's so short and because I do episodes on basically everything. That's the name of the show. I've been able to sell full show sponsorships. And I've been using my contacts in the tourism industry. So one of my biggest supporters has been the tourist office of Spain, the Spain national tourism board, and they love what I do. So they were the first group that came to me because I had worked with them in the past that said, we want to support the podcast. So I put up a plan for them and what I did is I would do a burned in ad, not a dynamic ad. Talking about Spain and all the time personalized that I've been to Spain many times. I've been to, you know, I've spent months in Spain, talking about the place, and then I would do an episode on something about Spain. They didn't even care. They let me choose whatever I wanted to do, so I've done stuff about Salvador Dalí and Picasso. I've done it about Queen Isabella I've done about Philip the second. I've done it about different places in Spain, the Sagrada Família. Whatever, food and Spain, and they've been pleased as punch and they actually went to a conference. And when I was speaking, they got up and said, we just want everyone to know, we feel this is the best money we have ever spent on marketing. Nice. And a full episode sponsorship sells for way more money than doing a 30 or 62nd ad spot. That is dynamically created and you're selling X number of impressions. So much so that I was on another guy's marketing podcast a few months ago. Then he came back to me in a few weeks and said, well, I work with this client. This tour is on board. They want to do something and they're now willing to pay up to $5000 an episode for a full episode where I just give the backstory talking about some different aspects of their destination, famous people who are from there, you know, famous things about there are things that I would be happy to do episodes on anyhow. So it was a very easy thing for me to do. And from a tourism standpoint, what it's doing is it's peaking someone's interest. I didn't know about that. Oh, that's how they do that. Oh, you can go see that thing. I did an episode on the Holy Grail. Which I'm sure you've seen the Indiana Jones and heard the stories, you probably didn't know where it's located. It's in the cathedral of Valencia, Spain. And it's there. Well, they claim that's the Holy Grail. But so yeah, you can actually go and see it. And that's where it is.

"Like, what was the point of any of this? It's not that big of a lift. If the union was significantly less resources and worse attacking talent can do what they did and go to a semifinal and make the playoffs and almost get through to the conference final and make an incredible run. If they can do that, and you don't think you can do that? Again, what are you doing? Like you're a champion now. Act like it. And don't make history. And I think the comparison to Columbus is a good one. Tom, the only difference is how much younger this group is. And you look at Columbus and I thought they were the deepest returning team we'd ever seen. I said all of that. But Harrison awful, Jonathan mensa arts, all these guys are older than what you're talking about with the sun YC group, and they're probably not as deep. They also lost 8 and Morris and a terrible injury. So it's tough. But you're playing those games anyway. The question is like, for that opening round, you don't have anything else going on. You need to be able to put you need to put your best roster out there, your best 11 out there to win. That's what we're talking about. And look, they had a ton of guys on the bench this year that aren't starting their quality. Play those guys in MOS matches. What tear going Andrade go run at people on the weekend and go win your midweek? Like build that way. Yeah. I don't know. Let's look at the other teams and just give one thing that you're looking forward to for each of them. How about the sounders? Dave, what's something for the sounders and CCO that you're looking forward to? Well, you have the possibility of playing the Jordan Morris Leo two raul three Diaz lineup for the first time ever. And that's exciting. I think Jordan Morris will return we saw at the end of the year, you're looking at a guy who's going to hit the ground running next year and we saw last time he returned from injury. That second year was when he let MLS on fire. And so that's a guy who can carry you in CCL, maybe if we DS, there's an in training camp the whole time because he's working on a contract. Maybe loader is not fully healthy. They have enough weapons to be able to power them through at least an early round of CCL without having those guys available. Sell me on the revs in CCL, Tom, what are you looking forward to? The formula is there with the top end talent and the veteran experience and Bruce Reed as a coach..

Name is lee zeldin representative from new york. Who's running for governor. And i do this knowing full. Well that this draws attention away from things that are going on that going to affect our lives much bigger than andrew cuomo. Okay like the stuff that they stuck in this infrastructure. Bill and this guy cassidy who i watched on fox last night this guy's and unhinged buffoon he's emotionally out of control and cocky as hell because he's got the media behind him telling everybody how wonderful he is but let us start with a montage of the media last year by the way joe biden. We'll get to him later. He thinks that he thinks he should resign. Cuomo should resign. What's interesting is think. The tarry deserved a an investigation by the us attorney or somebody because tarried never had her day. Her allegations were that she was molested. Are private part was actually touched. That biden reached underneath was eight dark. I'll a corner in the state in the us capitol building and it was blown off pretty much other words. He raped her. That's the allegation. So it's pretty interesting when reporters say are you gonna stick by. What do you think of cuomo should do. And it was also interesting when he said you know. I'm not going to get into every particular here. No of course he's not. He's got his own closet. May i say anyway. The corrupt american media montage slobbering all over andrew cuomo as they do cut one. Go david we're standing by for governor cuomo that's the biggest slob of the bunch right there. They're prepubescent bs. Brian helter skelter start from the top. Please go david. We're standing by for governor. Cuomo's press conferences daily briefing. How would you contrast cuomo and president. Trump's handling the crisis truth versus mendacity governor cuomo out there day after day after day. Everything trump isn't honest. Direct brave real leadership of the president of the united states should have provided governor. Cuomo is clearly living in a totally different reality than the president of the united states. Governor cuomo has become a national leader. Become the leader of the democratic party is conveying incredible strength. You spoke to national guard troops today in a stirring speech that if i was listening carefully. I thought you'd sending soldiers off to war. This is been a remarkable show of leadership by governor cuomo in recent days. He's providing hope but not false. Hoke i think is one of the heroes an on the front lines with all of this adulation that you're getting for doing your job. Are you thinking about running for president. Cuomo who has a daily television show now and has become some ways. The shadow cresent. Maybe trump is just a little bit mad. That governor cuomo has become kind of acting president dealing with hardship. Actually makes you stronger. That's what governor cuomo said earlier today. that's what am. I gonna teach my kids right now at home. What else are you going to teach your kids at home. Prepubescent brian stelter. Help us to be esser. Anyway we wanna hat tip media research center for pulling all that together and so basically the attorney. General of new york has latisha. What the hell's our last name again. James latisha james l. j. They like to call it. She and her office put out this report. Now what's interesting to me. She's authority to act in. Do anything at this did this this. He violated federal law violated state law. He violated the ordinance in in sussex. County i mean this guy. He's all over the place de. Well what are you going to you know. We got to leave it to the local prosecutors. Well what does that kind of weird none. The less latisha. James is on the job. She's on the job. I wonder if she'll investigate. Joe biden the way she's been investigating donald trump's corporate taxes. Now now. she won't do that anyway. So buying asked about this. During the bizarre he gives these these speeches and then he takes like four questions and he's asked about this and remember tara reid. There was never an investigation never report. They had their man by and they were going to nominate him and push them across the finish line no matter what even when he didn't know where the finish line was. Busy tying is low. I cut to go. I would like to start with the news of the day given back in march. You said that if the investigation confirmed the allegations against governor cuomo then he should resign. So we'll you now call on him to resign. Given the investigator said the eleven.

It's generally like four or five doors down from me There's this house who it's hard to. Sometimes there's a You know those mobile grooming like it's like a food truck but from grooming dr row. Sometimes one of those is parked outside of and so i think they have like a lot of dodd clients and things that but i think just where they go to the clients But so it's a really like there's always just dogs in their yard. And i'm never sure who's they are if they belonged by For a while there was a dog that i was calling batman who i later learned. His name was joker Dr klaus sweater the good. What kind of dog was batman. Soccer a baked dog. That was started as a puppy. Also just did not give away my little bit of foreshadowing but you know. I'm not really sure. Maybe like a german shepherd but mix something with floppy ears so very you know really cute cute. Yeah that that means good name for that duck because he had barriers. I m look jokers.

I think that Eugene but anyway so there's always an assortment dogs and i don't know who actually live there and who are visiting but right now confirmed i have sightings of this little grey pit bull puppy and i sent her an hey a video of i think it's the puppy is is sitting cute and then walk away because i stand up and the puppies upset so it gives a little howl of going. Whoa wait a minute. So it's so cute and it's hard to convey like how small it is also in the video.

Why Kendall Jenner's tequila is being criticized
"Let's move onto kendall jenner and her tequila. Yes yes that's the man that's the on. Let me see. Let me see if i got this tweet. The tweet basically said that went viral was on a meeting. My laptop jenner's tequila is called eight. One eight directs. So yeah so. The streets said kendall jenner starting to heal brand with zero knowledge of on mexican culture and colony eight when they think is gentrification the eight one eight does not claim calabasas. What about those smaller family owned mexican tequila scholar brands. They deserve the hype. And so now the tweet that went viral. That i did see. So the issue is the fact that she's naming the eight. She's really not funny when she's from calabasas which is like the rich part of the when he was also probably lived in. Encino on again is the rich part of the day when eight valley super super valley. But it's been terrible of our above. There is a little bit different situation financially. Ya but see years you bring up a good point. Let the tweet said. Why don't we give the attention to the mom and pop brands. And that's so true like white. Why don't we warming because we like what we like to think. A companies have done better job making better tequila branding. It better But do i am. I offended as a mexican offended. That kendall is starting to a meal chettle speaking. I'm not offended. You gotta look at it like this to. I'm sure the people producing the la are from cadiz. Go so right. Yeah so that in a way she's generating jobs down in mexico more. Holly i mean it's taken from the mexican heritage but she's also financially given given to the people in a way i mean they're working for but you look at george clooney right. What does he cuss amigos. First of all people love to hate the card ashes number one number two eight one eight probably pissed people off so you know that's the thing that she has some strikes against her and that's what's helping. You would also sucks though. I'll say this. I don't think people were coming at the rock. They coming at george kalonzo weather coming at for brand only female. That's another way that. I i see what you're saying. I see why it within a female though. It's the cardiac. I think more than right leslie. I am dj for them. And i know you're going to play you know you're going to be polite here. But other people love to hate on them right. Oh yeah absolutely. Like they have to really. It's like they're walking on eggshells almost the questions. They just have to be very careful. Which is why i think they should have probably thought of the name a little bit more. You know but then again who's to say like like you said jeff. They grew up in the eight one eight. It wasn't. It wasn't the hoodie way. But it was still the eight one eight personally. I don't have a problem with it. I would have done more research on the name and she could've done like all the sisters together like you know named it. Four sisters done that in spanish lot. Cut akilah yeah. I like that would have been cool. I hope that when she campaigns for this tech you can talk when she campaigns for this tequila. I hope that she incorporates. The real eight one eight campaign you know like like panorama city point did all those cities and so more in san fernando. Panorama city pajama friggin. A north hollywood is where i was born so like i just really really hope that that she she you know incorporates the actual culture the actual mexican culture and eight when he culture in her campaign by the way the keillor's produced by gopher essay are the seven distillery. And how these again. She's providing jobs in a way.

"And issuing a statement said he understands There's been a lot of controversy over Officer MENSA. Now Deputy MENSA, But he thoroughly researched all of the incidents that he was involved in and Wauwatosa and see Iverson came to the conclusion. That officer MENSA acted properly and proactively and did the right thing. And each of those shootings and He felt he was the best applicant for the position. There's also a point here that you think that the left he's about to make they are constantly carping that we don't have enough black police officers in the suburbs. The walk of Shaw County Sheriff's Department obviously has largely white. They've now hired an African American deputy. You would think that they might be happy about that, unless they want to continue to ride on the whole MENSA thing. Because he was willing to take the personal risk knowing the kind of which I think that goes on two police officers who fired their weapons to try to protect the community. Do that. So Sheriff's Iverson, who I've in the past suspected is not being particularly aggressive. Despite the fact that he's been elected as a Republican and a Republican County. He deserves a lot of credit here there are I think most police chiefs And most sheriffs anywhere in Wisconsin, not just southeastern Wisconsin with the rest of the state would not have had the guts to do it because Police officers and sheriffs are political creatures, and they realize that you get fire more criticism for doing something like this. And support and even walk a shark Cockney. I suspect that there are going to be some people who would just as soon not have seen MENSA hired because even though they felt he got a raw deal in while we're toast, said they're fearful it is gonna be protests. And walk ashore over that and again rather than stand up already principle. Now, the hard thing about protests that here is Finding your way to the walk of Stark County Jail isn't as easy as just standing around in the streets. The city of Wauwatosa, particularly given the fact that in Wauwatosa, the response from the mayor and the police chief to the demonstrations all summer was so weak and so tepid that they allowed this kind of behavior to occur. You even had the riot outside the home of the Milwaukee police officer. Hence his girlfriend. In which shots were fired into his house and David Bowie, in a member of the state Assembly lied to the police about the incident. And even then, hardly anybody was arrested on the scene. Despite the fact that there was vandalism of that police officer's home and all sorts of other laws that were breaking broken because while we're toast, they didn't have the guts. Who actually enforce all of the laws that were being violated. You also have a citizenry in Wauwatosa. It is opposed to a high rise apartment building but supported protesters were breaking all sorts of was by creating ruckus is night after night After night after night. I don't think with regard to the sheriff's department and walk a shock, Cody or, for that matter, the residents of Walker Show Connie that they will be as tolerant. This kind of behavior, And then there's also the reality of this. Decision to Herr Officer menses occurring in late January. The day we had half a blizzard. I just don't see the same kind of zeal. And holding protests night after night after night after night after night, right now on Walker shot, But who knows how it'll play out? Already? The statements of condemnation from the A C L U and others are coming yet. Interesting again where the A C L U stands. Given the fact that Officer MENSA has not been found guilty of any wrongdoing at any point in his career. If he was not hired. When he applied for a position and clearly was the most qualified. You think that if the A C l U were standing up for people's rights that they would stand up for the right Of a black applicant for our law enforcement position in the suburbs, who was denied the job for no legitimate reason. But instead, the instead of standing up for the African American is enforcing the law. B A C L U was standing up. For the rights of a bunch of educators who broken law after law after law after law in Tosa and other places, all suburb Couple of other points on this. I've got my ear to the ground on a lot of things. I had no idea. Benson was up for a job and Walker shot Cockney. The application process for any job is supposed to be confidential. You know, the names of any applicants are generally no wonder things like this. You might have heard something. And I had heard nothing. None of this came out until the announcement was made that he was being hired. As they say, I think that sheriff secrecy deserves a lot of credit here is that we don't know. I don't know how many other jobs meant supplied for Was he rejected in a number of other communities because of lily livered or bigoted. Police chiefs and sheriffs who didn't want to have the trouble. I don't know, or was the only job that he applied for Walker Stark County. I know from the perspective of being in law enforcement that that's considered a good agency to be it. Walker shot County Sheriff's Department and perhaps not everybody knows this. They actually are the police department in a number of communities. There are several municipalities in Walker Shaw County that do not have their own police departments. Instead, they contract With the walk a short walk a Shock County Sheriff's Department to do the police work in their community. In other words, they'll have deputies that always worked that particular community on a contract basis because they don't have their own police department. So they have unlike see in Milwaukee County, where every community in the county has their own police department walk a shark County. A number of the deputies actually do all of things that a police department could do. In addition to that, it is a huge county geographically. I mean, it goes obviously all the way from 124th Street here. Way out the bordering the Jefferson County line. It's a much larger county in terms of size. In Milwaukee County. Lot of territory. You got the interstate running through it. You have a quasi interstate with highway 16 going up and down lot of traffic enforcement that goes on there and Huge population. But not dead spread around all over the place and Lot of the same problems that a Metropolitan Law enforcement agency would have given that. Like a shot Connie, the third largest county in the state, in terms of population, it thinks huge, It's several 100,000. And a lot of territory to cover and every single type of thing. Everything from small town policing. Who a lot of traffic enforcement on the freeway and other roads and so on. Having to deal with.

"Text line I convince, I confess I'm a little bit surprised, not necessarily that this happened. But it happened is close to home. If you're just tuning in Joseph MENSA, the former Wauwatosa police officer who was the subject of all the protests, and all the controversies, ultimately cleared in connection with a shooting that he engaged in February. But he reached the separation agreement with the wallet, Tosa Fire and Police Commission a agreement that I think was probably in the interest of everybody because I do think that there was an element of officer men's had stayed on the wall, the toast of police force. He was so controversial that you knew that every time he tried to do anything in connection with law enforcement, traffic stop or whatever. You knew that there was a chance that somebody would be there trying to, I don't know, encourage him or egg him on to try to do something wrong. I just think it was best that there was a parting of the ways. But that didn't mean he was a bad cop, And it didn't mean he shouldn't be entitled to a new job. And that's exactly what has happened. Just a few months after leaving while the Tosa he has been hired to be a walk, a shock county sheriff's deputy Um 8556161, 6/20 2nd mortgage talking text line, Jeff, I think it's great. MENSA got another job. I'm surprised he took one so close to Wauwatosa. Had he been employed in another area further away, it probably wouldn't have been noticed. Well, I don't know that. I necessarily agree with that, because again, there's people that made Joseph MENSA. He was the poster child for The belief that they think that their systematic violence against persons of color and things with like putting aside the fact that officer mentioned is a person of color himself. And I think wherever he went, you knew there would be a degree of controversy. I actually give the walker shot, County sheriff a lot of credit for being willing to say Hey, I'm gonna I'm gonna give this guy a job. I don't see anything that tells me That he should not be entitled to be in law enforcement, and I'm going to treat him like I would any other sheriff's deputy Jeff, I think Officer MENSA deserves his chance. I believe he's a good police officer, and this is what he wants to do. Unfortunately, I feel he will not be treated fairly. And we'll deal with a lot of controversy moving forward. Especially being so close to wall it. Oh, so well. I can't imagine what's gonna happen. Next is soon as the weather gets a little bit nicer. You're going to see a lot of those protesters who were I don't know, Occupying the Cheesecake Factory and in Mayfair and shutting down Mayfair Mall. Don't be surprised if you see them out in Walker Shaw. Um Let's see. 85561616 20. What a great thing for officer MENSA. I think this is truly turning lemons into lemonade. Jeff, I seem to recall a time when police went to the front of the threat to protect the public and were regarded as heroic. The job requires courage and quick judgment. Not everyone has that. He seems to I remember one of the arguments about him was well, you know, he's there are and there are police officers who go their entire career and never have to draw their fire arm And and that's That's true. There is an element of truth to that. But I can remember discussing this with chief. Very Weber, who I've known for decades and again. I don't think I'm telling tales out of school. And then when, when the point the chief Webber made, he says, Look here. Here's the thing that people don't understand about police officers. You you don't get to pick and choose what calls you. Go on. You You know you're you're told. Hey, there's a disturbance that Mayfair mall. Go Check it out, and you've got a kid with a gun. Who points? It? You're you're told. Hey, it's 3 30 in the morning or three o'clock in the morning or whatever. There's this car that's parked where it's not supposed to be in this park. Go, go investigate, And you find some guy who's in the car with a gun that he points at you. Okay? The police officers. They don't get to pick. You know what which calls they answer And so in many respects while it's true that some officers go their entire career and don't have to pull their gun that doesn't mean that the ones who do are necessarily are forgetting unnecessarily doesn't mean the ones who do are bad cops. It means that they're find themselves in circumstances. Maybe that are not of their own making, and that's why you have the investigations And in this case he has been investigated thoroughly. They've determined that he did nothing wrong. At least there's nothing that would have been the basis for any sort of criminal charges and things like that. I don't think that there's even the basis for any sort of like civil or disciplinary action. I understand there's gonna be some lawsuits because there's always people out there who are going to raise claims and are going to have issues and are going to try to collect money and things like that. And that all plays out. But as far as the decision to hire him as long as the sheriff found nothing disqualifying in his background, the fact that you had some people that were upset with him and Wauwatosa. To me. That's not a basis for saying you cannot continue your career in law enforcement. And so I think that's kind of good news. It's a controversial decision by the Walker Shaw County sheriff. I'll be curious to see where the protesters come down on and whether this becomes a hot potato in Walker Shaw. If it does, my guess is the sheriff can handle that back with more in just a minute. This is Jeff Wagner. Stick around. Jeff Wagner is right around the corner. We're here for you, Wisconsin during these stressful times. This is Stephen Dave Orders.

Now Kimberly Roberts is working in philanthropy focused on the connection between all that's happening in the need for deep investments in black land movement organizing civic engagement voting on Gwai. It's important, meaning the same issues that prompted her to get involved in 2017. Remain is present for her now as they were then made more urgent by the pandemic. The death of George Floyd and her fear that these four years were just a preview of something worse. I have a lot of Anxiety and apprehension around Whether or not we've learned enough in the last four years, while her feelings about the incoming administration are mixed, she's inspired to see the first woman of color as vice president have in common that there is amazing, she says. What happened on January 6th was a backlash to the progress that's been made in this country. And the fact that it happened on the same day that Democrats won control of the Senate. Thanks largely to the work of Stacey Abrams. Another black woman was no accident and the female pisses me off the most. Is that we? We constantly bear that burden and do that work because we know no one else is going to do it and that if we allow our democracy to crumble and slip into God knows what we are the first to go. We got this sacrificial lands. So we do this for ourselves because we know that we don't have any other choice. That's a sentiment that Afia Adam MENSA knows Well, she's head of community voices heard a Social Justice organization. She's worked since 2016 to understand the issues that matter most to black women voters across New York state and to help them organize. I'm both in all of work done in Georgia and Arizona and other places, but also similarly, a time gobsmacked and annoyed that folks think that in the state of New York similar work doesn't need to happen. Since the fall of 2019 c V H has surveyed nearly 4000 black women across New York state about the issues that matter most to them. The effort is part organizing and part data gathering. Issues like health care, affordable housing, criminal justice and family care topped the list at a MENSA says she makes the effort to link those concerns to the act of voting. I'm part of the folks who are voting with a clarity that a vote you know, contrary to the rhetoric is not going to change your whole life. It's a starting place. All right. It is a starting place that requires us to talk larger about in the work continues for money. Cardio. Part of the work is deciding how to make the most difference. And whether she wants to run for office again. I don't know. I've been asked, but I'm not. I'm not quite sure she went to campaign training school Four years ago with Kimberly Roberts. She lost a bid for a seat on the Nassau County Legislature in 2019 to an incumbent who took a plea deal in a domestic violence case. She says the bar for women of color to achieve elected office still feels too high. It's just the same question that we face. Why are you qualified? What makes you qualified? It's not good enough that you're an attorney, Hardy old says. Seeing someone who looks like her in the office of vice president does give her comfort. Maybe another jolt of inspiration like Harass her. Parents are first generation immigrants. Her mother's Dominican. Her father is Jamaican. My great grand parents were from India and Pakistan, and they migrated to Jamaica. So yes, it's It is an incredible feeling. It's it's indescribable, and it might just be enough to prompt her to run again with another primary set for this June. Wijnbergen W. N. Y C news..

"Bob Cerise am morning, DJ 7 39 would like to give you extremely local news. We call it as well as all the other news and from black Club Chicago here. Shame is to me. Good morning, Shamus. Yeah. Good morning, Bob Happy Friday. Yes, sir. And I really think that this is a story worth mentioning because you can't have enough classic Jewish Delhi's and even during the pandemic. This place is expanding, aren't they? Exactly. We bring you daily news this morning. This is Stein Gold's of Chicago. It Z been in the North Center neighborhood on Irving Park Road since 2017. But it's doing it's doing well to the point where they need more space. So the owner Aaron stand, Gold tells us he's They're in the process of building out of brand new spotted 37 37 north South port, which is easy to remember, because it's two doors away from the music box theater right there in the South Court corridor. Yeah, let's see. So they They have been in the neighborhood for a while, right? Yeah, they? Yeah, they've been They say it's about a 20 minute walk. So, uh, you know, just the neighborhood next door, but, uh, they basically said, you know, it just wasn't the current site wasn't suited for the way the business is now they needed a little bit more kitchen space so that they're now building it out, too. Three times. Actually, it's Vegas. The kitchen spot. It's gonna have a little bit more focused on take out on delivery as well, Obviously to adjust to the times, But, you know, I think the real plum of moving this location is once we do. Get through this. Once the music box reopens. They're gonna have a lot of nightlife on that little stretch there. If people are familiar with it s Oh, they're gonna expand that to a dinner menu as well to cater to the Folks in the neighborhood there as well. The folks going to the music box so all their old favorites will be on the menu. They're not going to be shut down. It's gonna be there opened for the second week of February to actually move into the new spot, so it it's exciting. And you know, we're always we're always happy to see prohibited places that I found a way to thrive and even grow. Despite doing all this carry out and delivery only Can't wait to head up there for a movie and matzo ball. And this is a story that is really nice. Once again. You've got folks rallying to help somebody in the Tell us about this. Right. It's a story that starts poorly, but But you're right. It, eh? It's got a happy ending. At least it's headed there. There was a collection of donated school supplies, medical supplies and lots and lots of brand new shoes that were that were rounded up for just for folks all over around Chicago that could need him that some of it was intended for for homeless people is well. They were being stored at a closed school in the Bronzeville neighbor. Good and they're in the process of moving them to a to a warehouse to get ready for the distribution. It's someone or some people broke into the clothes elementary school and made off with most of the stuff, including about $40,000 worth of these donated brand new shoes, So it's a real shame. The group's name was saved. Money saved life, and they put the word out and one of their big supporters Chicago rapper Vic MENSA, who Said. Always in the news, doing good things for the city. He stepped up. He's organized a fund raiser. Um, it's online right now, and they're trying to get $10,000 to really get back. A lot of these supplies. Among the missing items were 300 kids coats. A swell is other hats and scarves and gloves. So Vic MENSA started this Don a fundraising campaign platform called Lift Cause there's linked to it at Black Club Chicago dot or g'kar, but he's trying to get $10,000 and I just checked before we went on. And he said about 8000, so people are really coming together, Tonto, right a wrong here and then re stack this this warehouse so they can do the distribution like they planned. That's great Block club should go dot org's for more on that. And finally, we have an interesting Chicago history story about Edgewater Hospital. Talk about this famous right. You know, I drive by at the old Edgewater Hospital lot, and and I, too, have wondered, you know what the heck is going on? There? It was. It was once they really fancy. If it could be a fancy hospital, this was it. This is in the Edgewater neighborhood right there. A National avenue. It opened in the in the twenties. It was head of the beautiful Salieri. Um, they said Frank Sinatra used to hang out there back in the Edgewater Hotel days as well. Um, but it's really had gone into disrepair after its original founder had died. It got to the point where there were some huge medical fraud going on there as well. In the in the late nineties, some of the Owners of the place and the go to jail. They're doing unnecessary experiments on people experiencing homelessness. So it was really turned in the house of horrors that closed down and then, um It. You know, it went into such strange disrepair. People used to sneak in there and take pictures. And we've got some of those on our site as well. And true House, of course, But local couple like me was wondering, you know about the history of this place. So they launched the podcast just on Sunday. Uh, then it's gonna be they're gonna have about seven different episodes coming out. I'm sorry 11 episodes coming out every Sunday. If you just Google. If the walls could talk, you'll be able to find it. There's also links to it on our site, but it's really a fascinating look at just how a sort of a staple of the community could could go downhill so fast, Um, some of it still standing there. They've knocked down a lot of it, but it's still a work in progress. They're turning some of the old buildings into condos. And, uh, this couple Todd Ganz and Stephanie Young that really just trying to document the history of a place that once was so important to the community, and then it became such a horrific ice or that they're trying to just make sure that it's It's history is documented before it's knocked down for good..

And the elected leaders of Wauwatosa first allow me to be clear that I am and always will be supportive of American citizens. First Amendment rights, having said that ever since the death of George Flight in Minneapolis and the protests and the protests the incident sparked There has been a push by community leaders throughout the country to weaken, defund and abolish police departments in several cities. Locally, Officer MENSA has become the poster child for this movement due to his three officer involved shooting incidents.

All About Virtual Therapy
"Thanks so much for joining me for session. One fifth of the therapy for black girls podcast as many people are now beginning to work with their therapist. Virtually a might be looking so work with the therapist for the first time it will be meeting with them. Virtually I thought it'd be a great time to rewind and share this interview. I did with Melissa Douglas again as she has been providing virtual services in her Saint Louis Practice for the past couple of years. Melissa is the owner of goal driven counseling a private Tele Mental Health counseling practice where she supports teens and millennials challenging educational career and life transitions through secure videoconferencing. She's a native of Chicago Illinois but has called St Louis Missouri home for almost a decade. She's a proud Triton who received a best of social work degree master of social work degreen and also as a ticket in nonprofit management in leadership from the University of Missouri Saint Louis. She's a licensed clinical social worker and a distance credentialed counselor who has diverse volunteer work experience with us in juvenile detention community based and educational settings. Melissa and I discussed some of the differences between traditional in virtual therapy. How you can decide if it's right for you how to find a virtual therapist and she shared all of her favorite APPs for Mensa weld is if you hear something that resonates with you are listening. Please share with us on social media using the HASHTAG. Tgi In session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us today. Listen thank you for having me Dr Joy. I'm very happy you were able to join us today. Because I know there have been a lot of questions about people looking Virgil at therapy or if they live like in a town that's further from a big city and they're not like a lot of therapists they're people are wanting to know do therapist offer virtual action so. I know that you have a completely online practice and this way correct. Yes so you are the perfect person to talk with us about some of these concerns so I can you tell us a little bit. About what virtual therapy is and how? It might be different from traditional therapy. Yes so it's very basic in so we're gonNA talk about has basically tele mental health and virtual therapy because there's a whole other section of just telemedicine that covers a lot of different professionals by talents evolve. Israeli when the clinician and the client are in different physical locations using technology to communicate pretty much and so it's referred to eat therapy virtual therapy online therapy distance counseling. And what I tell. Clients is Dora virtual counseling or virtual therapy sessions. We can do almost everything other than I can't handle a tissue if you start to cry at a time and I can't be a physical support in a crisis but because I use all video and actual platform designed for telehealth. It helps me to have the same relationship report to be developed and the resources to be used. Because I can share my screen. With people's we can work through resources things together in actually see worksheets and stuff like that. I can have more than one person in a session with me. So couples counseling family. Counseling can be just the same as as traditional therapy but when you talk about Tele Mental Health. There are other options other than video. So you have phone counseling as well as a synchronous methods. Such as email and text based counseling. And so all that means is that you there are not live communicating. So you may send a message and you have to wait until the counseling therapists can respond to that. And then you go back and forth that way. And so with those methods there has to be a comfort with communicating fillings in POPs in a in a written format but the largest difference. Is that the responsibility of ensuring privacy of the session is a little bit more shifted to the client because they're in their own space but I always share that tell them will help isn't better or superior methods to traditional counseling. It's really all about appropriateness and our preference so it sounds like it is very similar to coming into the Office for therapy except that you might be in your home. Like in Pajama Bottoms. So what kind of feedback have you gotten from your clients? Melissa about whether be you know like like it better or worse than traditional therapy. Like what kind of feedback have you gotten so again like I said it's all about preference but I received a lot of great from our clients because again because I use the video base we really are able to establish the same relationship and report because we can still see and feel each other's personality we can hear the to- now with the end we can see affect from each other and so it's a little bit more van just communicating written format? And so we're able to really Bill at relationship. They also enjoy the flexibility. It allows in their schedules as well as the convenience of just having to log on. And I'm right there. They don't have to travel or really fit it into their schedule. In addition to travel and things like that but I always share with people who are a little bit unsure about telehealth. Because you know honestly it's it's still a fairly new thing. It's been around for about thirty years and we talk about the telemedicine space but for Tele mental health. I think it's gaining more traction in the last ten years more visibility and so. I always tell people that it's been researched for effectiveness in solid in the early two thousands. There were a lot of different studies but a couple that I like. I like to share is added. Two thousand one. A study was conducted by the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University. Here in Saint Louis. So patients quickly adapt and establish report because the basics of relationship building. Is there with telehealth? And then there was another one another study done in two thousand five by a psychologist from northwestern university who conducted trials that show that clients living with depression tended to stay in counseling longer and saw a larger reduction in symptoms by participating on counseling. And so I like people to know that. There is research back to the effectiveness of elements of health and virtual. Yeah I mean and I'm glad you brought that up right. Because that he is I think another benefit of virtual therapy is you know sometimes one of the more significant symptoms of depression is like not wanting to move and not wanting to leave your house so if you can talk with your therapist via you know your laptop or your tablet then you can still participate in treatment in you know may receive some benefits from the treatment that you wouldn't have if you stayed home. Yeah absolutely as well as the social anxiety is as well and we know that. That's the largest mental health illness in the world and so police will stay in the US and so that's also a great benefit as well. And I think it is important for us to mention that this is not jumping on facetime with your therapist right so it's not like your therapist will just facetime call you and you just answer. These are very are at least therapist should be using hippo compliant software and platforms that will increase the security of the session. Correct absolutely yes. Yeah so there are precautions that your therapist should be taking but like you mentioned you know like if you decide to have your session and you know your partner is like right next to you. Then you're compromising you're all confidentiality but your therapist is taking the repercussions. They need to make sure the session is. Yes absolutely. You got you okay. So what kinds of consideration should somebody consider if they're thinking about virtual therapy like what kinds of things might be WANNA think about? Yes so I always say that. The virtual therapy is the method in which we're doing the actual therapy. You definitely want to consider the expertise of the clinician if their focus is what you need and saw. You WanNa make sure that that the actual option is not the main thing that the person if you're experiencing depression or anxiety that that actual clinician that's offering the virtual therapy specializes in those things. Another huge thing because of the the lack of geographical barriers would tell them it's a health. We WanNa make sure that the commission has licensed in the state that you resign him because legally required men. So that's a misconception that a lot of people have is that because we give us our phones or computers and things like that that we can work with anybody and that's not true. Also I tell people to do a real self assessment and consider if they would be comfortable sansom on from a distance the end because the confident the impact of separate therapeutic space is really important to some people in Psalm as well as thinking about if you have a support person that is is nearing assessable if there is ever an emergency situation and so that's not something that was mentioned yet but emergency planning. It's something that is very important when it comes to tell them health because if a client were to experience at some time some suicidal thoughts or things like that there has to be an emergency management plan in place that that usually includes a emergency support person near the town of triage. That with the therapist in the end client should be feel free to access their tele mental health therapist or counselor has completed any chiming in so some states required in Psalm. Donning in you also share that you know it's not just jumping on facetime call. Any really really speaks to the clinician operating in their areas of competence. Which is a a safeguard for the client and the client should be comfortable and aware of talking about that with the clinician. Yeah and like you said all the states don't require it but you know it does feel like most therapist who are doing significant amount of virtual. Therapy are tele. Mental Health have completed at least some like trainings in maybe even some additional certifications. Yes yeah so. Can you talk a little bit more about the emergency planning because I know that that is something that often comes up and I think something that you know frightened some therapists away from maybe wanting to do elements? Health is like okay. We'll do I do in case of an emergency. So can you talk a little bit about with their processes like with you? And your clients. Yes so assessment of fit is very important so when a client contacts me for consultation. We're having that initial call. I'm usually doing a brief assessment at that time and so I'm assessing if they are at high risk of currently having suicidal thoughts or have had a plan or intent also assessing for any homicide Any active substance use Any delusions around technology and so that means some people experience thoughts and things that someone is spying on their computer things like that. So that wouldn't be comfortable in a therapeutic face if that's some concerns as well as some complex traumas in some those are some things that I quickly assess floor in consultation with also the assessment phase and so with the emergency planning share with clients that if any safety issue were to come up and we'll just speak about the the suicidal thoughts and things like that. If that was ever be concerned that I definitely openly share with them. That is my ethical responsibility to call the police to do a wellness check and things like that but I also wanted to be a little bit more comfortable for them too so we talk about any support people that they have in their life that has click access to them. And so if it is a spouse work is a parent that they would give me permission to disclose and contact them and say that. I am their therapist in Bay are having a very hard time right now and if they could check on them. I remain on the phone or in a session with my client during that time but then I also triage with the support. Person is what okay so it is very similar to what you would do if you were meeting with the person in your office absolutely but unfortunately they have the ability to hang up and disconnect right thank you know they have the Leave your office. Like I've had clients that leave. You know like just abruptly into session if you know things are not going the way they want us something. So they're still option even in real life. That's true yeah so Melissa does insurance. Pay For ritual therapy yes. There are many insurance companies that pay for virtual usually equivalents of the cost traditional but it varies state to state and it also varies between insurance companies as well and so I always tell people the best thing to do is to contact their ensure to ask about the the details of their specific plans. Okay Okay and so if that is something that is going to be like a priority like if using your insurance

V. ten cent so they stop airing and streaming preseason games silver said the NBA will tell people what they can will call say this is really escalating it is I'm and I think the most interesting piece I've read this morning is at the mensa his column on the pay back time enough in the spot which one of the NBA has all the leverage according to Adam he says that it's a hundreds of millions of Chinese people watched the league's games loss yeah and that they're not simply going to advance today and that of course China is aware of this but it's about the message that China is trying to boot because of course hitting a big sports in the with seventy five as a China and the United States gets the message
What is a Vaccine Adjuvant?
"Our special guest today. Neil Z Miller. He is a medical research, journalist and the director of the think twice global vaccine institute. He has devoted the past thirty years to educating parents and health practitioners about vaccines encouraging and form consent and non mandatory laws. He is the author of several articles studies and books on vaccines, including Miller's review of critical vaccine studies. Neil has a degree in psychology and is a member of Mensa international. And it is always an honor. And pleasure to have you on one life radio. Welcome back. How you doing today? Neil grew. Thanks for having me back today. I appreciate it. I always appreciate your work and what you're doing to educate the world about vaccines and their safety today. Specifically, we're speaking about aluminum. So let's start with this basic question for people that really might not know a lot about vaccines that they. There, there are avent's added to them in order to make them more effective or for the delivery. So what exactly are ad edge of events? And what types of events are there will the main Atrovent that's being used in vaccines. Today is aluminum, and there's different types of aluminum, but, but the reason that the aluminum is added to vaccine is because the, the attenuated germ, okay. So basically, you've got the, the, the German self the, the micro organism that is likely to cause the disease. They take that microorganism and they attenuated or weaken it. And that's the main component of the vaccine, but it doesn't induce enough antibodies by itself, generally speaking with some vaccine. So they add aluminum which really just irritates the immune system. The immune system recognizes the, the aluminum as, as really as foreign object. And so it, it, it helps to awake in a higher concentration of anybody tires. So that's the main reason aluminum is Najim added too many vaccines to help stimulate a stronger immune response, and increase vaccine efficacy. But aluminum is taxing. Absolutely. In fact, there's no known biological purpose value or function for aluminum in the human body everywhere. That now by the way, it is very pervasive. One of the most pervasive elements on the earth, but it has no biological function. And so it, it's a neuro toxin and in fact, that's, that's what the mainly what the study's find. That's what I summarized, you know, like I said. Aluminum is added too many vaccines, and so children that received these vaccines are getting multiple doses of aluminum in an injectable form. Now, some people say that Lumina m- is not a big deal that, you know, you, but, but the, you have to differentiate between or orally, ingested aluminum and injected aluminum, we're warned to not even use aluminum foil anymore unless you like parchment paper in between because of the taxes city of aluminum other studies now that are showing a link between aluminum and Alzheimer's disease aluminum dementia, it, definitely, there's no question. There's literally there's literally thousands of studies showing that aluminum. I'm talking studies outside of the world of vaccine just. Thousands of studies that show that aluminum itself is a neuro toxin and is also capable of, of causing immune immune now functions. It's going next with this because I had read that numerous studies provided credible evidence that aluminum adversely affects important biological functions. Like neuro degenerative diseases and auto immune disorders up -solutely, that's the biggest problem is because it c- see when you when you ingest aluminum now luminous is dangerous to any kind of life-form, whether it's an animal, or human, and well we're animals as well, but. And that is dangerous. But when you ingest it as long as you don't ingest too much at once setting that most of that aluminum when I say most we're talking ninety nine point seven percent. You can you can eliminate it through the normal home in Tori functions of the body. But, but when, when that aluminum is injected the studies are showing that it lodges itself into different different organs of the body, and, and they're finding injected aluminum over a year later. They're finding it's still lots in different parts of the body, including the spleen and the brain it bypassed. Now here's the here's the interesting thing is some studies show that it's actually the smaller concentration. Of aluminum that are more dangerous, because they don't because the blood brain barrier does not block it. It's able to, to bypass the rain barrier and go directly into the brain. So this is off the record doctor medical doctor. Obviously, I'm not gonna say his name he didn't want it. He didn't he he, he doesn't even want to talk about it on the air, but told me off the record that there's no way that you can inject a child body with, with aluminum and it into a muscle and it not make its way to the brain. That's, that's absolutely. That's absolutely true. That's what the studies are showing. So, you know, I mean, I don't know why you can't speak on the record because he scares. There's plenty of studies that, that document that down fact in my book, and my latest book Miller's review of critical vaccine studies where I summarize over four hundred studies that are critical vaccines. I have a chapter in there on aluminum, and in that chapter, I summarize, I don't know one or two dozen probably about two dozen studies that, that document is the, the, the hazards of, of aluminum vaccines. For example. Here's a study that, that was conducted by Dr Chris Shaw. And Dr siege CJ, Thomas genyk aluminum in the central nervous system, toxin human as humans and animals vaccine edge in auto, immunity. This in summary, this study found that aluminum vaccines can cause autoimmune and early jiggle damage so that that's pretty common and just to tell you how common vaccines are for example, in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and many other nations, infants and children, receive high quantities of Lumina for moldable injections of several vaccines. For example. Okay. The following vaccines contain aluminum, the tetanus vaccine would, you know, the that's combined the P? So, for example, they give babies diptheria tennis in plus vaccine that can. Aluminum the, the hib vaccine for influenza type b that contains aluminum hepatitis A contains aluminum hepatitis b contains aluminum and, and the pneumococcal vaccine contains aluminum. Now, they're giving these vaccines, for example. They're giving DTA. They're giving the protest fact seen at two months of age. They're also giving the, the hepatitis b vaccine, two months of age, they're giving the pneumococcal vaccine at two months of age, and they're giving the hib vaccine at two months of age. So these are four separate vaccines, each containing their own, high concentrations of aluminum. So, so it's so they're getting four high doses of aluminum, when they get their vaccine to two months of age. Then this is repeated again at at, at four months of age. And then again at six months of age. And so it's extremely. Concerning extremely dangerous and a recent study came out in his shown that today fifty four percent of all children, have a chronic ailment, which includes things like attention deficit disorder, which I have summarized studies showing that attention deficit disorder has been linked to the vaccines. And so, so these chronic ailments, people have to look around and say, what do you mean fifty four percent? We're talking with an half of all children today have kind of illnesses. Where's this coming from? Well, I'm working on a paper right now that has found evidence that all of these conditions. Okay, fifty four percent of the of children, have these chronic ailments. These are these are twenty two different ailments, okay that these children have, and all twenty two of these ailments, can be linked to vac. Seen damage. Well, so, so this is something needs to really, really get a handle on and really just recognize that when, when we say that when, when you hear people saying that vaccines, save lives. Well, if you look at. We know that with some flaxseeds they reduced the incidence of the disease. There's no question that when the measles, vaccine was introduced it reduced the number of cases of measles. But what are the trade offs? That's always what we need to look at. What are the trade offs, and, and the studies document that there's increased rates of diabetes increased rates of, of allergies increased rates of autoimmune diseases increased rates of, of learning disabilities, increased rates of so many different types of diseases. So we have to look at everything in from the larger picture, we can't just say that, that this particular vaccine was introduced lower the number of cases of disease at what cost, that's what always needs to be looked at. I'm reading the paper, according to the American Academy pediatrics, which is the AP aluminum is now being implicated as interfering with a variety of cellular metabolic processes in the nervous systems and another tissues. And so, you know, if the pediatric community knows this information. Why are they still pushing the agenda that all vaccines are proven safe? You know, I, I think that I think that there's just so much influenced by by big pharma, and you have to understand the regulatory agencies and I'm talking about the CDC the FDA and on international level, even the World Health Organization. These these workers Asians have been captured by by big pharma. They've been captured by the pharmaceutical industry and and what do I mean by that? I mean that there's so much evidence and document this in some of my papers and document. This in in. There's there's so much evidence right now that for example, in my in my book Miller's review of critical vaccine studies in the chapter on, on mercury mercury in vaccines. And by the way, there's still mercury Invex in vaccine or giving this to pregnant women and two infants. How ridiculous is that, that, but, but the point I'm making is the CDC in the year nineteen ninety nine they conducted their own study to look at at, at whether or not mercury in vaccines is dangerous. And, and they found that babies that got mercury in vaccines. What they did is they took a large group of kids, the and half of the kids got got got vaccines, with mercury and the other half of the kids got the same vaccines, except without the mercury, and then they've they've fast forwarded to, to, to several years later, and then they added up. How many kids in the wound group were eventually diagnosed with autism, and that the kids that got that those mercury containing vaccines were had had eight they were eight seven point six times more likely to be to have been diagnosed with autism. So, so we're talking about I high statistically significant study conducted by the CDC showing that mercury in vaccines will cause autism. Okay. So, so my point is, is that they did not remove mercury. They required it. They required. More people to actually get needed some from some scenes, and then required. More children to receive it and pregnant women to receive it. So, so what is the why am I mentioning this? Well, because it's important for everybody to know but also because it shows some insight into the fact that the that the CDs. C which is supposed to be a regulatory agency looking after for the health of every children has been captured by big pharma has been captured by the industry. They are just a marketing arm of the industry in my opinion, from for my research, the CDC and the FDA, and we'll help organization too, because there's a lot of evidence that the World Health Organization is covering up a lot of a lot of dangers associated with vaccines. So, so people need to realize that when you've got the, the American Academy of pediatrics you'd think, don't they don't they care about these children, the number that the thing that the Dr Blaylock he's, he's a neurosurgeon a brain surgeon. He, he did a forward to my other one of my other books fact, the vaccine safety manual doctor Blaylock in that foreword. He has he presented. He said amazing forward. He's, you know, it's an. Amazing bit of information. Yeah. One of the important things that he says, and he provides evidence for is that the vaccine program itself is sacrosanct above everything else, even above children's lives. The vaccine program must be saved at all costs. It
