"They don't. And as if Lee Merritt is not an actual civil rights and constitutional lawyer, we understood a few things that the. Murder convictions of the men who murdered ahmaud Arbery. The cause those convictions happened first in Georgia. Because those convictions happen first that Georgia would have claim if you will over where those men were incarcerated. And when a convict when a series of convictions happen first, unless there's some predetermined agreement where you are convicted first, tends to be where you are incarcerated. But we also knew that the family had not been heard from the federal perspective and says a quick synopsis the mcmichaels and Gregory and Travis mcmichael and William roddy Bryant were convicted of murder in state court in Georgia, but they were also charged with hate crimes from the federal government, but because they were convicted and the federal trial had not happened, and the federal government basically hates to go to trial and they were pushing over and over and over again for the mcmichaels to just plead guilty so there would be no trial and we learned late on Sunday Night that they reached a plea agreement, but that the terms of the agreement, in essence, would move them out of a state prison and into a federal prison. Which, in essence, was allowing the men who murdered ahmaud Arbery, to determine for themselves where they would be incarcerated. Like, can you imagine? You literally lynched a black man in broad daylight, but white privilege still allows you to choose your place of incarceration, and so we fought back, the family spoke out, the mother, the father, other family members and relatives spoke out in the closed court hearing yesterday. And three things happened. First, Travis mcmichael, who was the actual shooter, confessed in open court that he is literally that he was racist, and that the primary reason he tracked shot and killed a mod was because Ahmad was black, and in the hearing, they showed evidence of open white supremacy and bigotry and text messages direct messages and in other ways. We already knew that, but to see it again in open court was a profound thing and Travis mcmichael admitted to this all in open court. But it was clear that he only did it because he thought it was going to get him out of state prison. To cause the judge said I accept your guilty plea, but I do not. Except your request to be transferred to a federal penitentiary. I deny that you'll stay here. Well, his attorneys were clearly not prepared for that. And said, well, we might change our pleading. In other words, even though he admitted in court, to hate crimes. They were only admitting it. Exclusively only because they thought that it was going to get them out of a Georgia state prison and into a federal prison. And when the judge denied that, they were so the attorneys and the mcmichaels were so bothered by it, that they then said, well, we might withdraw our plea. Can we have 48 hours to reconsider? And so the judge basically said, okay, now everything is denied. Your plea deal is denied the request to be moved is denied. And we'll just see you again in 48 hours. So, in essence, the mcmichaels admitted that these were hate crimes, and got nothing for it. And we wish that yesterday would have been the end of it for Wanda Cooper Jones for the family of Vermont for the attorneys, even for Lee, I wished that yesterday could just be that's it. But it wasn't. And they'll be back on Wednesday or possibly Thursday because the judge gave 48 hours, but it was 48 hours from Monday afternoon, and so they may be given until Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning. We will see I am concerned that between now and then the prosecutors and the federal government and the DoJ may try to strike some other kind of deal and may put some type of pressure on the judge, but our hope remains that these men who murdered a modern Georgia will stay in Georgia and you know all day we were having Lee and I both were having to defend ourselves and defend Wanda for even caring, like to say, hey, y'all, y'all are nitpicking. No, no, no, no, no. These are the preferences of a mother whose son was lynched. Her preferences matter to us. And it is her strong preference. Again, remember, she was originally calling for the death penalty. So like please, honor this woman's request, this family's request that these men stay incarcerated right there in Georgia where they did what they did. It's a cold world. And what I know is had Lee and myself and Wanda not raised holy hell that these men would have already been on their way to a federal prison. And it was clear that the DoJ and their team, they just weren't used to people saying, no, we don't really like what you all are offering. And it is what it is. And I'll close with this thought. I think we're so used to getting scraps. We're so used to people just telling us how it has to be. That we hardly know how to act when we actually have options.

Wanda Cooper Jones, the mother of ahmaud Arbery, as it was being told to Lee and her that a plea agreement had been had been reached with the men who murdered ahmaud Arbery, and she did not like the terms of that plea. Lead and not like at the other family members and attorneys did not like it and I did not either. And we pushed back against it and had Lee and the family, not done so. What ended up happening yesterday, which was profound. Absolutely would not have happened. I want to unpack and explain to you exactly what happened yesterday was a closed hearing with no cameras, and I want to explain to you what I think is going to happen next. But it was overall it was good news, but it was very stressful for the family and I can't wait for them to get some measure of finality and closure here. Let me unpack and explain it. This.

"I say you know. We're at war this war against your children and if you were the mask unfortunately you're participating in that organs children. That's really what it is to enclosing. Doctor i want to get really broad now. Who's behind this. What is the agenda. You say we're at war. What is what does success look like for them. Who's really behind this. And why are they doing this. I know that's not an easy thing to say in a few minutes but you know again. This is my speculation. you can have your own speculation. First of all is people with a lot of money because a lot of money the way it worked a lot of money was poured through. These foundations like the rockefeller foundation gates foundation. Or what more than that. It poured into the and over forty years Tony found she had over eight hundred billion dollars allocation authority and he used it to basically control the hospitals and to spent one hundred twenty billion tour and david martin outlines this with a pads to getting all these different labs like. i say. It isn't just the chinese one out here but getting all these different labs to take things out of nature and and to gain a function research and genetic manipulation. Make them dangerous to humans that you know. So you've got to look at that now. Who would pay for that kind of thing. Well there you know. Since time immemorial we've been talking about depopulation. And plato said you know wanted to use disease for depopulation. I'm sorry but that's that's an obvious potential threat here but in in terms of who the people are. That could be doing this. You know In two thousand eleven there was a guy named gad glad filter and he looked at all the corporations world thirty seven million plus corporations put him in a supercomputer and found they were all on one hundred forty nine hundred forty seven companies and then those owned according to forbes one hundred forty seven were owned by ten banks which were then owned by four big funds those are all those are controlled by about one hundred fifty men. Apparently women need not apply. So i would personally look there. I'd looked at those hundred fifty pitman that we don't even know their names because somebody's pulling strings at a very high level to do this and that you can prove that looking at the pr test every every hospital. Every lab manager didn't have some psychotic fit in two thousand twenty and not be able to do their job in producing a reliable test. Every lab all over the world over cycle these tests. And i read the thing how to do it. It clearly told tells you turk twenty to thirty cycles at the most twenty five to thirty five so they all did it and they all did it wrong. Exactly the same way all over the world that takes a national conspiracy. There's no other way to look at it. Unless you believe in the worldwide group psychology or co psychosis of land matches are. That's another possibility. I guess that's a deeper topic for us to get into. We'll doctor merit. Thank you for your time. Dr lee merritt dot com and so just in closing how should people fight back against the mandatory vaccines. How do they fight back against the workplace. Bullying that's happening. How there are people that are emailing me charlie. I got my kid vaccine. Because i don't want to deal with anymore. What are this the oldest stuff right. don't do that. That's not the right move because you've just made a lifetime problem that for something. That is not going to be a lifetime problem. The the these guys you. Boris yeltsin said.

"Charlie so now i wanna talk about masks. It's now the new thing to put masks on. Everybody talk about what. The data says about masks talk about how they might be harmful. I mean i. it's so frustrating. Dr just to go through this all over again so it's a bad idea. Well mess you know. This isn't masks are not about containing a virus masks about controlling you from time in memorial masks. Were signs of submission obedience. I will be silent. I will transform myself. this is what it means. In the occult and in and in the slaves wore masks. Okay we never in my entire forty years. Medicine ever talked about mask being useful for airborne diseases other than other viruses. Other than that. You know we use them for tuberculosis. Which is a completely different kind of disease. You know people always say to me. But you're surgeon. You are massed all your life you know. Here's here's what. They did how they talked to in medical school. When you're in surgery and you have a mask on and you think you're going to sneeze. What do you do. You wanna go like this. You want to go like this you know. No no. if you do that you'll blow it right out onto the searchable fields. They say just lean back. Be straight ahead this. Don't they're big holes in mass masterwork. Now paper the the least. You know the sapa mass. We wear in surgery. Are these tie on masks. And that's the one that you breathe out the side it's not controlling airflow is not hermetically sealed and there's no studies prior to twenty twenty to try to even convince you that they work for this. Quite frankly i thought this would be a slam dunk. When i went down to the lost city council to to speak for three minutes against the mass mandate. Because i was convinced. I still am that anybody that believes in them is either being paid or is being played it. Just there's no evidence this but they do a lot of damage. This is the real point. And i think this is the real reason they're there. This is such a hot button. I was. I'm just a little doctor and a little place and by very first time i came out public speaking for nfl. Yes the frontline. Doctors was on masks and mcgill university. Rights big hit piece about you know. I don't know anything about the size of mass will. I could argue with them on that. But you have to ask why. And the answer is because this whole cycle logic operation depends on this optic and this fear generating gear. I believe were war. Not she's we're not finding a virus of fighting a war and this is an object of the war is stupid mask. It's this is part of the a huge part of the psychological operation and it's a war against her children. You know you. And i are old enough that we now know how to read you know to what we call read faces not just recognize faces but read faces and interact as a human. 'cause we're fully formed adults But children are not and so you put little children and masks and damages them. Psychologically and that is really. I think a huge point here. I don't know if he saw that there was. Somebody sent me the picture and it was a it was one of these health department how to be safe and called and thanked in the inside of a new york subway and so two little children it was a cartoon stick figure constitutes solar boy and girl the first one is. They're both wearing masks. And they're looking at each other and underneath their the caption says worst. And then the next picture. You're looking straight ahead. And then the caption says better and then finally the last picture too low kizer mass looking away from each other best you know. What is that telling you. Why i mean that's what this is about a takedown. So but but it's it's horrible psychological down but it's not without actual damage you know just physiologically peop- they never tell you when i went to the big thing all all the the university nebraska's specialist for on the other side and they did not say one thing about the risks of wearing masks. But there's risk one of the big ones as carbon dioxide retention. It doesn't maybe happen. I tell people if you've got to wear a mask. We're the twentieth most worthless. Massive candles little things a little ear loops. Their bloop abor. They don't they. Don't cheap out anything including snot. I don't say that but you know it just doesn't keep out anything so they're not obstructing your air your circulation as much but you want a cloth mask or worse yet. You put on one of those end ninety five masks. They're forcing our nurses to wear eight hours a day. Someplace is in the icu. For example. now here's the problem with that. It's not the oxygen flow per say. It's the co two its intention a retention so the oeser says you can only have sealed two two thousand two thousand parts per million and above that it's toxic gave thousand for any prolonged period. Well i have a friend listened to monitor and she showed that these cloth and the way above that and that at one point when these end ninety four. I think it was then i. Five mass was ten thousand parts per million it. Just it just doesn't work but it makes you sick you know During now break a paper came out showing that some types of lung cancer have hot. The people have higher levels of their oral bacteria their long. Now think about what happens when you put on masks and you're constantly breathing your own oral bacteria you know. It's just one thing after another here and that may be one of the things this year. We're seeing not just a viral outbreak. Because i'm hearing doctors all over the country and i'm one of two it says ivermectin doesn't seem to be working as well as now. Well if you're wearing a mask and you re breathing other things can get in there and there are things like mycoplasma pneumonia and these weird strep Organisms and things that can get into your launch in a constantly wet environment. Which is what you got in a mass that only can be treated with things like doxycycline bathroom. And that's what we're starting to see. So i think the mask the message doing a lot of harm but the most is to our children you know psychological damage to our children and i and i used to put up with people saying when people said to me. Well i know. I'm just wearing a mask. I don't wanna be you know a confrontational now. I used to let people buy with that..
Medical Rebel, Dr. Lee Merritt, Explains the COVID Vaccine
"What is this vaccine. What is incorporated who developed it. Should people be worried about this. Should they be suspicious of it and just kind of go through it from an abc nature because we have people listening to this right now. That are still trying to make up their mind. They're not really sure what's going on. Well you know. It's striking to me. That americans would spend more time researching a new car line before they bought one and taking a vaccine that's made out of synthetic dna or synthetic arsenic and can change your genetic makeup forever. I mean come on this is this is serious stuff. We're dealing with here and this isn't a bad scene it's we. We actually found the term for it's a viral based genetic therapy's these things have been working in development for decades as cancer drugs or gene therapies. They could never meet the safety standard. They never reach the bar for safety. And so now by declaring them suddenly oh back seen their indemnified now that could be safe and up for market that she comfort people but it's the same devices and and these what they do is they've taken a small amount of genetic material and they wrapped in a light bulb protein codes and they are injecting it into us in such a way that it produces the actual spike protein. That causes your genetic material or that your machine to them produce literally trillions of copies of the spike protein. We send go all over the body now. Just and that's the theory is that then you'll get immune to the spike protein. Just the theory of that in my opinion is crazy regardless of the other stuff. That's in it and how it actually functions because you know in nature if some of this is hard to talk about because one of the things. We learned that there may not be viruses. The way we talk about them so just for the moments conversation. I'm gonna mentioned viruses as if they really are just like we were taught What we used to do was we will give you a small piece of the virus and then it would just be a very very tiny piece and it would not go all over your body would be local and you would then recognize that your immune system would see it. Memorize it. Go out and tell your other immune system heart to to remember this so that if it ever shows up again you can take it out. That's how you'll time immune system or the old time vaccines work. This worked by actually kind of hijacking. Your your cells. To produce the very pathogen. That made us sick with colbert

"Not. I'm not a trauma surgeon anymore. I i was semi retired just working a few days away doing electric surge so when this broke out and they shut down the hospitals even before we went into that lockdown. I was sitting home doing nothing and i had been alerted to looking at this one from a friend of mine. Who used to work at you. Sandwich are bioweapons weapons labs so call it what you will. That's what is so. I've been following the sense almost mid december and it was looking pretty bad. And then i also was on. I was fortunate enough through other organizations. Just i got on a web. An email email page with people and it started out with about six people but one of them was diddy role from france. You know and then it added people and and so i was kind of just a little quiet member on his big group email but it turned out we were the very early on maybe even Before i got with all those people that the chinese were talking about using clark and hydroxy clerk the koreans That had been used with sars. So this is starting to come out. People were sending around these papers. He's all papers way back to talk about this. And i started reading them and many of us came to the conclusion. All this is going to be a piece of cake. We got this you know and then then suddenly it turned a corner and at first i thought. Oh it's just because now month after we heard about it and kind of had been thinking about you know. We need to stock up on his stuff people's need to start using it. Trump mentioned it and then it seemed to go south. And i thought oh they just hate trump orangemen bad. That's what this is. But then i started while at what during that period of time and hear what they were saying to to discourage the use. Oh pedrazzi chloroquine. I realized that's wait a minute. That's not what i've been reading. Because i've been reading the scientific literature now so i started going from paper to paper to paper anyway it it. I followed the trail all the way back to nine hundred seventy four that they knew about clark one hydroxy clerk for the use of these kinds of problems for viral issues and i said really and then then i found a paper that said That it was that clark. One was a potent inhibitor of influenza a. In vitro meaning. They knew this stuff to treat influenza. I said all. It's not trump. This they don't want to take their sixty nine billion dollar vaccine industry and reduce it to zero if they have a treatment like this. So that's what i thought it was. Well then it started becoming a little little more questionable to me whether this was actually a virus or a bioweapon. When i saw the way that things were going and that's step changed but i ended up writing a paper about the hydroxy clerk when that's how it all started yet so that that's so helpful. Let's let's just ask some basic terms. Is it your opinion that this virus is a bio weapon developed by the chinese. It's bioweapon it's not just developed by the chinese. I will tell you. there's a lot of really go. The other thing. I did during that period of time. Might i wrote a timeline and started tracing from place to place. I'm gonna tell you if you want point fingers at people it can go all over including us You know there's no question this was this was lab manipulated and in fact you know the question is who released it when and why i mean i think we could say when around october nineteenth Which was the same day for two events. It was the same day as event to a. But the one i never talk about is the world economic. The world military games held in wuhan started the same date You know. I always looking out for things that haven't been mentioned or people that names that you've ever hear that's kind of a sign but anyway these questions been manipulated and that there are people that.

Prosecutor in Trump Criminal Probe Convenes Grand Jury to Hear Evidence, Weigh Potential Charges
"And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning, Manhattan's district attorney has convened a grand jury to consider evidence in a criminal investigation. I could indict former President Donald Trump or other members of the Trump Organization. The grand jury will sit for six months, three days a week, looking into whether Trump lied about assets to defraud insurance companies and banks. News was first reported by The Washington Post and has not yet been confirmed by the prosecutor's office. William Merritt from member station W. And my see in New York is here to talk about it with us, Hialeah. Good morning. What does convening a grand jury tell us about where the D A. Cyrus Vance is with this case. Well, let's just say it is such an extraordinary situation. Usually the grand jury process plays out completely in secret. You never know what's happening. But as we have seen, nothing ever unfolds in the expected way, when it comes to Donald Trump and the courts, so this entire probe is played out. In partial public view, and that's in large part because Donald Trump tried to block it every step of the way, forcing prosecutors to go to court to get the records they were seeking. This probe went to the Supreme Court twice and prevailed both times. And along the way, there have been leaks and just very intense media coverage. So this special grand jury will be a panel of men and women, ordinary citizens being presented with evidence of potential wrongdoing at the Trump Organization and potentially related to Donald Trump. Cording to the Washington Post is you say the grand jury will be impaneled for six months, meaning three days a week. Now it's district Attorney Cy Vance may ask the special grand jury for an indictment. Or he may just use it to gather evidence and corral witnesses. But either way, it's a very meaningful step forward for that investigation. We know that advances office one access to former President Trump's tax records. Based on that. What? What do we know about the possible crimes that looking at here? The ones that he has named in his court filings are scheme to defraud falsification of business records, insurance fraud and criminal tax fraud on he said that it could go further than that what we know about the business practices. Underlying those possible crimes really begins with the hush money scheme to silence to women who claimed they had affairs with Trump around the 2016 campaign. You'll recall that former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen went to jail for his role in that scheme, but no one else was ever charged. From there. Vance reached further back in Trump business history following a pattern described by Michael Cohen of either understating or overstating either the value or revenues of the trump business to get bigger loans if he was talking to banks. Or small tax bills If he was talking to the government now, to be clear, both Trump the man and Trump the business are investing under investigation. This probe could result in charges against Trump or people close to him or the business

"Software maker Smartmatic is suing Fox News, three of his host and two pro Trump attorneys for defamation.

Fox News calls the lawsuit Merritt listen, says it's proud of its reporting. And Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani says he's looking forward to the case. Smartmatic was the subject of conspiracy theories from Trump allies making wild and untrue claims about actions to rig the election.

In late December, Fox News Force those three host to run a short and stilted interview about Smartmatic with the voting software expert on their shows. Expert Eddie Perez tells NPR.

I just couldn't believe that something like that could be painted by human so that would be one of my answers to the question. What are your answers to that. I think many people have a similar experience wayne. As a matter of fact there's research from a firm called reach advisers that finds that people who really grow up to be voted museum goers almost all of them can tell you a story from when they were a little little kid like somewhere between five or six years old of an in a museum experience that just stayed with them forever because it was so high impact it was being being impressed by the size and beauty and scariness of a dinosaur or standing in historic house and realizing how old it was or being on a battlefield and imagining what happened there in these experiences.

I won't go into all that. Maybe we'll do the separate episode on that hope you do an episode with them. Are they still around. Because i haven't heard from them in years. I do not know with regard to the pandemic and stuff. I haven't looking. They'd be perfect because the way my memories the way they used to do exhibits as they would set up there. The pieces from their collection like outdoors along at public park path so that people could experience them As they were walking which would be perfect for a pandemic times. It would be.

Museums can have absolutely all right here in my backyard across the river in virginia. There's a historic site called wood lawn plantation. It's one of the sites that belongs to the national trust for historic preservation. So originally it was part of mount vernon. Have you ever heard of woodland plantation. I have not. Have you heard of mount vernon i have been there there. You go okay. So woodland plantation was created on part of the property that was once part of mount vernon and the historic house on the property was built as the home of. Nellie custos who is i think. Washington's niece by marriage. It's not easy being historic site in the shadow of mount vernon as you just demonstrated everybody's heard of mount vernon they might come long distances to visit it But how you carve out.

"Here episode coming to you every other monday and how appropriate that. This first one is the future of museums with lots of things that may surprise you about museums their past and future with so many current challenges for museums. What a great time to have that discussion and who better to talk. With and elizabeth merit. She's the vice president for strategic foresight and founding director of the center for the future museums at the american alliance of museums elizabeth. Thank you so much for being with us today. Oh it's my pleasure wayne. We're talking about my favorite topic. Which is museums will. Let's start there and museums are not always what comes to mind for people and i'm thinking of an article i saw recently. That was talking about the sudden little known museums in illinois. That were free and we have. What's not really a museum here but it's could be considered one. Which is the mems house here being out in oregon and it was a historic site in its the current head of the local chapter n. double c. p. but it it has an amazing history and there are some museum aspects to it. Oh absolutely one of the things about the american lines of museums as we take a very big tent approach to what a museum is so it includes zoos and botanic gardens and historic houses and public gardens so anything that is in any way shape or form. A museum in is a place based experience interpreting art or history or the past the natural world. that's in the category for us. And i tried to understand how many of those there are an icy numbers. Like thirty five thousand or fifteen thousand. Or how do you think about the the number of museums that are in the united states. That's a great question and it's a great question because there is no definitive answer and part of it is because there's no official definition of what constitutes a museum. One of the great things about nonprofits in the us is anybody can start one and many people do and many small organizations think of themselves as museums even if they haven't bothered to incorporate as dumb prophets you probably. I moved into my house here in washington. Dc less than a mile away. There is a little house that called itself a doll and toy museum and it was just a woman who lived in that house and had a big collection of dolls and toys and she decided to put a sign out front and say hey. I'm a museum and i'm open to the public a few hours every week. So a years ago the institute of museum and library services which is an agency of the us government that actually supports us. Museums tried to count so they went online and thought of every clever way they could think of to pull data out of the the irs records and the employment records in identify everything in the us. That might be a museum and that's where that thirty five thousand number comes from But anybody going through. That database would see a number of things that clearly aren't actually museums. They got captured by accident. So the number is probably somewhere between twenty four thousand. I know if you talk to the historic house. People they will tell you. There are eighteen thousand historic houses alone and they could list all of them. So it's definitely more than that but probably less thirty five our advisor for the stores here.

FTC sues to break up Facebook, sell off assets like Instagram and WhatsApp
"Let's talk a little more about this. Big lawsuits got all right. The us federal trade commission filed a lawsuit on wednesday allegedly that facebook illegally maintains quote. It's personal social networking monopoly though Excuse me through a years long course of competitive conduct. That's a direct quote. Evidence was gathered in cooperation with the attorneys general of forty six states. The district of columbia and guam specifically called out as anticompetitive practices or as those practices are the acquisition of instagram and whatsapp an api restrictions on software developers Ftc is asking the court to order facebook to sell off. What's app and instagram. Cheese prohibit anti-competitive conditions envelope burs and require notice and prior approval of future mergers and acquisitions similar lawsuit was filed by new york attorney. General lati- let Excuse me latifah james. I believe i said joined by the same states and territories. That is a hardcore lawsuit. Tom merritt gigantic. Yes it is i. Let's just say up front. The chances of them actually getting a court even if this went all the way to the supreme court to agree to make facebook divest itself of instagram. And what's up very low not impossible but it's low so you know. Don't don't get too excited if you if you want instagram and whatsapp to be spun out. It's doubtful that will happen What they'll probably is some kind of reparations. Kind of fine. Maybe a change in business practices. I imagine they could have a good chance of getting facebook to have to agree to the notice and approval of future mergers and acquisitions. That part does seem likely but it will be interesting to follow this case and see where it goes because it was. It's a long shot to get this and so a lot of people weren't sure if the ftc would even bring this kind of charge that they might go after a smaller remedy but they're basically accusing facebook of buying instagram to neutralize a direct threat in instagram and make it more difficult for other social networks to compete. Kind of the same thing with what's up. They they wanted to neutralize. Whatsapp is a threat to facebook and make it harder for other messaging apps to get in there that was gonna be real hard to to prove though because we have a lot of competitive messaging apps out there so it doesn't seem like they've really suppressed the the market for that and then the the i think where i think you have the most fertile ground to get a court to agree which is the restrictions they put on third party developers on on what they can and can't do not only on facebook but if they use the api for example. The ftc uses this in their press. Release in two thousand thirteen twitter launched vine which let users shooting share short video segments and in response facebook shutdown the api that would have allowed vine to access friends through facebook. That is an anticompetitive practice whether they're abusing their monopoly to do it or not. We'll be the question. The court will decide the big story and the kind of happen mid day today. We were all sort of scrambling around like okay. This this is actually a big story. You know a lot of people are like this is a really big deal because look the. Us is going to dismantle facebook. Instagram and whatsapp arguably being. You know the you know the the prized possessions facebook. Besides its own news feed itself and like you said tom. It's highly unlikely that that's going to happen. Is going to be tied up in court for another few years probably But does it set a standard for how facebook and any company that would dare to get his anywhere as big as facebook in the future to not be able to gobble up. you know. i don't know. What did they pay one billion for instagram back in the day when thirteen people working at instagram. Kind of thing because instagram was big and facebook has a history of replicating kinda cool trendy stuff that that works. I mean look at real on instagram right. Now it's tiktok competitors you know it's all it's all kind of the same thing just to see what sticks and has had a oftentimes not a lot of success. Buying the company works for facebook a lot better than trying to replicate some sort of cool feature that then people have to learn to use now. You could argue. That is why the big weather big targets on this because what's app and instagram are notably gigantic runaway successes than. They were already heading that way when they were acquired. And you could also argue that. Got him at a bargain basement price. But maybe that's why they're being targeted decide with facebook. And i'm not really doing that. But for devil. Devil's advocate reasons. I would say yeah. This is a huge target. They have billions of users on their main service and then these secondary products are huge for them and they would be standalone gigantic companies on their own. That we would talk about individually if there weren't already owned by them so it makes sense that they're the target but the idea of buying up your competition to limit their impact on your business and grow it out. Separately isn't new and they're not the only ones doing this but maybe they're doing it. The most successfully and the question isn't just as a monopoly. It's not enough to save face because of anomaly you have to say it is a monopoly and it abused its position as a monopoly to reduce competition. Sometimes of an -opoly is perfectly legal. It's not illegal in the united states and most countries to be a monopoly. It's usually illegal to cause harm because you are a monopoly. And that's where. I think they're gonna have a problem showing harm yes. There isn't another few. No flicker is not doing well. And when they bought instagram that sort of dominated the image market. But to your point. Sarah the reason they keep adding stories and then reels is instagram is trying to fend off competition from snapchat and tick tick tock so there is competition. There is competition pushing instagram to change. And i think facebook can demonstrate that. Yeah maybe maybe zuckerberg said something unwise in an email once but there is competition out there. Same what's up there's telegram and signal and we chat and and how many other messaging services out there so i think it's hard to show that they are reducing competition in the marketplaces for those two. That's why i'm less bullish on the idea of them winning over a court to make them get rid of them on the other hand the developers stuff like they essentially killed vine. And i think they're they might have a better chance of getting facebook on that one do you do you think the Slack is worth twenty. Seven instagram's just to put it in numbers slack. Yes this lack. Twenty seven billion dollars as opposed to a billion. That's what i'm saying. Everything's billions and billions of dollars now. Yeah five star wars. Anyway i would love for there to be some sort of okay. Let's say we go forward and maybe facebook is find which is likely And is it sort of said going forward. He can't just gobble up companies that That you deem as a future competitor mall and then make it your own and then you reap the reward. So what what do we get to is if you have this x. amount of users you can't buy a company that has x. amount of users that is on the up and up or it has to be for not too much of a certain price so that the company doesn't willingly to you there so many factors in play i i i do wonder how this goes. There are laws. These laws will be tested in court. Now which is you can't buy a thing when the only reason you're buying it is to put the competitor out of business. It you there has to be a valid business reason for buying it and i think facebook can show that i you know. I look back at the microsoft case where they wanted to break up microsoft. They never broke up microsoft. They just put in some remedies. And i think yeah. That's courts are very reluctant to break up a company. You have to really show that it caused harm. And i just don't see it there

This is just Like I think I have had a perspective in the past that because God is our provider that he has to change our circumstance. But that's not true. He doesn't have to rescue us from this but it doesn't mean that he is no longer are rescuer. You know like he still who he is is character still true even if we continue down this path of struggle for many many more years. And it's a hard thing is knowledge. Accept that but it's like it doesn't change his character he is still so good and he's still God and I know that I am not at the end of the line of being changed by him. You know like they're still changed to a so we are definitely all a work in that is for sure. Sure and he is so good to not You know shine the light on all of our things that we need to work on at once he yet. -Ly Guides and leads us Well let me ask you this. I always ask my guests. Do you have a scripture that you've clung to you in your situation or is there a life verse that you hold onto what hope from God's word has really sustained you well I'm in a season right now. I'm just trying to be consistent in God's Word and so knowing that you were going to ask this question I was like well. What has it been for me? I mean this is not the first struggle that he's brought us through and the first thing that came to mind was from limitations three. And so if it's Okay. I'll just read to you what I looked at this morning. And it's Verse Twenty Two through Twenty Six and it says because of the Lord's Great Love we are not consumed for his compassion never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. I say to myself the Lord is my portion therefore I will wait for him. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him to the one who seeks him. It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord and I am not great at waiting quietly and so this is such a good reminder that we are not consumed he has great compassion for us those compassionate our every morning. He is so faithful. He is my portion. Even if my financial portion never changes I can wait on him and he is going to be good to me he is so good and so. I am a work in progress to like.

Because I know you've spent a lot of time at having to pray through all of the things so why don't you? Why don't you share that with them? Yes so A number of years ago created this thirty days of prayer email series and it's basically just a short paragraph of a prayer that comes in your inbox every day for thirty days. And I think it's a great tool to like reinvigorate your prayer life or like if you just feel like you don't have words to say to guide you could just open up this email once a day and just say these words quietly or out loud or whatever makes sense to you And so I'd love to offer that and can be found on my website at merit on dot com slash prayer.

weights the freeway shootings right it's everybody thought Leslie Allen Merritt junior was the one that was the shooter Doug Ducey who is our governor at the time and is our governor tweeted out we got him when he was arrested a colonel Frank Milstead ahead of Arizona DPS still thinks that last Leslie Allen Merritt junior is the shooter the criminal case was dismissed the civil case is ongoing or did it finally settle I can't remember if it's been completely wrapped up but yeah it's still there this is a scary time I remember right on the freeway and thinking like man at any point somebody can snipe anybody driving on the freeway because of power levels right even even just kill a single person is is a tragedy so I'm not a lot of people about it remember this one and I'm I'm glad they caught someone in obviously to shootings have stopped I mean there there's not a report yes this doesn't work said they were able to have enough evidence to say that it was him and go forward with the prosecution but we haven't had any more shootings right so it could be that they got the right person and then he just beat the case because it's very hard to prove something like that or the person who was out doing it stop because they realize that the police were were honing in on the suspects involved yeah it was I remember is a scary time I didn't want to drive on the freeway and you know some people would say that's being a bit extreme but you know what all those people that got hit they weren't expecting to get hit either another story in that the top twenty was the uber self driving car and what happened in Tempe Tempe police saying Vasquez it should have taken control of the vehicle in the event of an emergency adding that had she been paying attention to the road they think she could have stopped the car forty two feet before the fatal crash police concluding that Vasquez's inattention to the roadway and disregard for her assigned job function alternately resulting in the death of hers Berg yes the very unfortunate I remember this I mean we had this huge a conversation about what the not she should be charged with murder or you know Elise manslaughter or which would be you know what what would they be liable or whatever the case may be so you know I thought that it was unfortunate but you have to pay attention while you're driving it I don't I don't I don't care if a car is driving itself if there's some functionality is that a database that you have to pay attention and if you don't pay a two tension and you run somebody over and killed him it's your fault now was the street will live that's another controversy that was was a part of this discussion but you will never know the what ifs if you weren't paying attention so I will say this in anybody driving in a valley in this story is a memorable one and I think you can use as an example moving forward as their pay attention at all costs expect the worst expect people to pop out of dark areas especially when you're driving downtown highly populated areas expect that because people are not going to feel sorry for you if you run over key it it runs out in the street just because it's dark in a file you text on your phone yeah so this happened back on March eighteenth two thousand eighteen in Tempe it was about nine fifty nine PM Elaine hers Berg was going across the road you know she was walking across the road pushing a bike when Rafael of Vasquez was in the uber vehicle that had the self driving capabilities triggered right so it was driving on its own and the current opinion or the car didn't even slow down didn't even register that she was there the driver at the time Vasquez she was watching the voice on her phone it rather than watching the road so we had investigation as to whether she would be charged criminally there was the investigation as to whether Cooper would be charged criminally riding governor Doug Ducey because he was the one that had encouraged burger and a ton of a striving here to be tested and also there was a lawsuit add without loss it might still be going on against Tempe because the area where it happened you brought up the poor lighting there was no cross walk there there was no light in there but it was a natural place that people would cross the road so this brought up a lot of issues for our community yeah and I and I definitely don't think that they that'll be a win for them in that case of lighting because Arizona in general has poor lighting especially in Tucson Arizona with the strong whatever yeah they're lighting is very poor people get hit out of time so it's it's some fortunate but this was one of those situation that they kept the conversation going for sure so number fifteen I know I will never forget and I think a lot of people here in Arizona and across the country this is only for get yeah the court finds the mitigation presented is not sufficiently substantial to call for leniency and the natural light sentence is appropriate it is ordered the defendant shall be incarcerated the department corrections for the rest of her natural life with no possibility of parole this was the Jodi areas trial Jody areas was convicted of killing her boyfriend Travis Alexander back in two thousand eight the trial started in January of two thousand thirteen it was for a first degree murder the jury came back guilty but they could not sentence her to death a mistrial was declared the prosecution came back to re try the aggravation phase to try to get her sentenced to death the second jury hung which ended up resulting in a life sentence for Jodie areas this was crazy to me because I'm white if any body so probably get the death penalty I'm a C. kill him it what we think we say back in the day Kim in three ways she shot him stab him twenty seven plus twelve twenty seven times a soul initially cut his throat I mean if you had any intent to do harm to somebody what you manipulate them or what it what they say I don't know the term that they use but you would do their body like that Dan it's premeditated she got gas in certain spaces you may have to stop I mean it this was crazy if it's a think that this she presented herself is in the same quiet you meet in the court room and sees a cold blooded killer yeah in in I think another thing that came out was her her boyfriend Travis you know he was a Mormon guy nobody thought he was involved in any of the **** and also the stuff that they came out in the case I mean that was very shocking to you know he wasn't who people thought he was in neither was she this is a case that really took our area at the country and really the the world by storm Rory Hayden one of the reporters well now he's in it he anchor at fox ten he does the morning show now he said you know what this was a case of burned hotter than the sun at a particular point in time because people could not get enough of the Jodi arias trial we were broadcasting that thing twenty four seven and in fact there are things still going on I still have request to do TV shows on it to do podcasts on it for interviews people do not let this case go because it was full of the sex the there were no drugs there was no rock and roll but there was religion right yeah we do see everybody else yeah I think all the crime so the stuff that they put out on television this is exact this is like a real life play out of some type of criminal show or some drama feel packed series so I think that's what it was very very popular next we have Kayla Mueller and this was a story that just was one of the worst stories we've heard responsible for horrific acts of terror including setting people on fire and beheadings among his victims Americans James Foley Steven Sotloff Peter kassig and Kayla Mueller the mission was named in Calif honor the humanitarian worker Baghdadi repeatedly raped before she was killed so Kayla Mueller on the first weekend in August of twenty thirteen she went to Syria with her boyfriend to help repair an internet connection at a hospital she never made it back home she was captured and then she was killed in captivity this really grip to our community because it was someone close to home and thankfully when the military went over to kill her attacker they named it after her and they killed him yeah set up the trunk ms ministration and the special forces for going over there and cause a big data to keep our into a cave where was running for his life and scream in right before you before you lost it all that's what I will say so I'm glad that we were able to Vince her death because these people ice is terrible and it's terrible what they did to her it's terrible what they did to what they've done to many people and is good to see him go out like a coward so the last story will hit on this segment before we go to break is the son of Joe our pile I think most people are familiar with the former sheriff Joe Arpaio he was the sheriff here if I want to say around twenty three years twenty four years he ended up getting beat by now sheriff Paul pinned down he was convicted of contempt of court which is a criminal misdemeanor and that hush I say our investigations and things that the MCO has to go through now are a result of his policies and procedures at the office that weren't always very good can I say I made I made so apart you are what's his office I interviewed him you know I thought he was a decent guy some of the things that he did was questionable but I did like tent city because I do not feel that we should be take it putting kid gloves on people who come into our country illegally and commit heinous crimes I'm all for them being out there in peak in the hundred degree weather because I will say this if our military personnel can suit up and go over seas and be in their uniform fighting for our country in a hundred and twenty degree weather these criminals can definitely be a tent city one thing that I dislike in and I hate that they change was I was a fan of tent city I think that what job did in this situation was fine some of the other things he ran into trouble with but that was one thing that I personally and his legacy I did like all right so we just went through half of the top stories of the decade here in Arizona will get to the remaining top ten next but first we have back dealing with the K. T. A. R. news flash.
