Take a look at the new PGA Tour schedule and you'll understand why players are upset. Vegas to Japan. To South Carolina to Bermuda to Mexico. He says, for the viewers, it's a flick of a remote. For us, it's 20 hour travel days and tens of thousands of dollars in expenses. That tweet already has 1400 likes in 25, 30 minutes, and then he follows it up by saying, to himself, we should be playing in major cities, places where they have an NFL football team, not Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Us little guys have feelings too. All right? He has caught a ton of shit for these tweets, but he's right. But he is right. Listen to that. Listen to that, that 6 week, that's what 5 weeks Vegas to Japan to South Carolina to Bermuda to Mexico. Vegas to Japan? Yeah, so to South Carolina. So they're going to be the little guys are going to want to play Vegas because it's really in the season because it's a wraparound. So they want to get off to a decent start. If they get into Japan, they're 100% going because they're pretty sure it doesn't have a cut. There's no way they're going to have an event in Japan with no cuts. So 1000% they're going. And then I guess I guess presumably. You take that off, I would guess. Where are they playing? I didn't even see where they're playing. But they're playing somewhere. Like the golf course. It doesn't matter. The only set is ridiculous, though. But I'm like, that's got to be a new event, 'cause the only South Carolina I know is Hilton head that they play, but I think it's chattahoochee or chat, chat to Jesse or, oh yeah. That's something like that over there. It's really cool. But yeah, that's not an easy travel. Well, you can't even do that. Your host. You're totally host if you try that. I don't know what I mean. This is where the play. Basically what he's saying for the people in the comments yelling at clouds is like the big guys, they're probably getting their own way paid to all that shit. The Japanese event, the big guys are probably getting older stuff paid for. I would guess all of it. Maybe they can pay appearance feed money over there. I don't really know. But the little guys have to play all those and what he's saying is it's going to cost him 30, not 30, but probably 20 grand to do all those. Ish,

We get some emails from people. They're not so crazy about him. Tell me about ape. Well, here's the reason I like, hey, because of his military background, his experience overseas. He's actually been a prosecutor in the pit, which to me, maybe I'm a little biased. Being an actual prosecutor not being a high level guy who's done the work and, you know, and I told him, I'm happy to endorse you, but, you know, you're going to have to hold up your end of the bargain. And his biggest bargaining point was, I'm going to go down and take on the cartels in Mexico. And for Arizona, that's a big thing. That's everything. To declare them a foreign terrorist organization, which I haven't heard a single other state attorney general candidates say they would do. Yeah, he better get armed security. Well, you know what? I believe that he's going to do that. And that's why I like it.

And he never gets off the boat. Olivia and John panics tells everybody about it, a search begins on the boat they find his passport. I think his keys, they found some personal items of his, but he's nowhere to be found. The coast guard looks into it and they go, look, he probably fell overboard and he's lost at sea. They searched a little bit, but you know, it was nighttime. It's like, you're not gonna find the guy. And he's pronounced missing. And it was a shattering thing and Olivia Newton-John. You can't imagine a guy wanting to get away from her. Maybe she's a crazy bitch.

This whole ordeal has gotten them close because that woman lost somebody, too. And now her and Olivia and John are very tight. And this woman apparently think she's running a memoir.

Dick Morris Discusses Trump's Powerful Immigration Policies

"On the issues, let's talk about the issue of immigration. Ann coulter has been bitterly against him really for the last 5 years because she claims he did nothing. He did not do what he said he was going to do, which is build the wall. There's some truth to that. I never came to understand how much truth there is to that. What's that big thing on the border? Well, it's not a monolithic 2000 foot long wall. I mean, he built some of the wall. I think he built all of it. No, he certainly didn't build all of that. Nobody would say he built all of it except you just now. But he seems to have wanted to and the Democrats made it effectively impossible for him to do it. But if there were a wall, we wouldn't have these immigration problems. He stopped immigration during his term. That he did. Well, no, he did that, but I'm saying that he vowed to build a wall for tourists to visit it. It's to stop illegals from coming in. I did. Right. The interesting thing about his speech yesterday was what he said about immigration. That I think was fascinating. Which is that he explains how he achieved the remaining Mexico policy in the way that he had never explained before. He told me about it, but he'd never said it publicly. He said that he knew that he needed to keep them in Mexico because once the immigrants came to the U.S., they got all the constitutional rights of citizens, even though they weren't, they were here illegally. Right. And the only way to stop that was to keep them in Mexico. Right. So Lopez Obrador is a communist basically. The head of Mexico. Yeah. And he wasn't about to help Trump. And Trump got him to put together 28,000 troops on the border on the Mexican side to apprehend immigrants and solve Trump's problems for him. And the way Trump did that was that he renegotiated nafta. Free trade. And made it into a very advantageous deal for Mexico and for the U.S.. And then he went to Mexico and said, okay, if you do not post these troops on the border, he said the graphically said that was a Friday. He said on Monday morning at 8 a.m. there will be a 25% U.S. tariff on any imports coming from Mexico, which in one stroke would destroy their entire economy. And Lopez Obrador said, we would be honored to put the troops on the border. But I

Mexico City Residents Angered by Influx of Americans Gentrifying Area

"We've got a situation where yet another city has been overwhelmed by migrants and we've covered these stories for ages on this radio program. We're talking about 1.6 million. And they've invaded this big city, they are they're changing the customs. They're not learning the language. And people are really upset about all of this. Prices are going up. It turns out that areas, neighborhoods are now gentrifying, but the great the great irony here, it's not happening on our side of the border. It's actually happening south of the border in Mexico City. And the folks who live in Mexico City are enraged. And here's the reason why. They say that too many Californians are relocating to Mexico City. And when the Californians are coming in, they're not acclimating. So typically, let me give you an example. Here in the Deep South, we're very welcoming and affirming people. And I will use the people of the good people of North Carolina as an example. And especially you folks in the Winston Salem and Greensboro area. You guys have been literally overwhelmed by migrants coming from the northern states. Now, I have to imagine that early on in the process, you guys were like, hey y'all, come on over, you know, we'll take you down to the cracker barrel. We're gonna get you. We'll go down to biscuitville and get some iced tea, get to know the neighbors. And then once you got to know the neighbors, you realized that these people had no inclination of assimilating to the southern way of life. In other words, they not only packed their bags, but they packed their bagels with them, so they brightened up and there's nothing wrong with the bagel. Don't get me wrong. I like bagels, but the south is a biscuit region.

Rep. Loudermilk: We Didn't Talk About OPEC Until Biden Came In

"And one of the things I appreciate you pointing out here is not just ending the Keystone pipeline pulling the plug on that, but you've got these Democrats that are going after offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. I mean, this is a very dangerous game to Democrats are playing. They are and they've actually included some provisions in the appropriations bills that will be brought up. This week. And so there's an old adage that when you're in a hole, quit digging, but they just keep digging. It's like, oh, we're going to fix this by reducing more American oil production. Toxins have been in Congress, we became energy independent, and it was actually during the Obama administration. Republicans in Congress ended a 40 year ban on exportation of U.S. oil. I was surprised to find out that we were the largest producer of oil in the world. We had the capacity to do that. Even greater than OPEC, so we passed a bill that forced Obama to sign it that ended the ban on exporting U.S. oil. Literally within weeks, we became the world's largest exporter of oil, which meant that OPEC no longer controlled the international price of oil. Everyone quit hearing about OPEC until Biden came into office and what does he do? He shuts down our domestic production. And now he's going over to OPEC countries to ask them to help us with their fuel prices. It makes no sense what these folks are doing. And then they just double down to try to make it worse.

"So cash, I want to ask you, there's a lot of elections happening right now. What races are you looking at? What candidates are you behind? Where do you think the America first agenda has the best chance of success in the kind of as we're ending the primary season right now? Well, let's start with the great state of Arizona. Of course I'm a huge champion and proponent of Kerry Lake, who I've endorsed. My first gubernatorial endorsement, I think she's America first candidate who understands border security and the need for national security priorities and putting American citizens first. Similarly, I endorse Blake masters. He's going to be the next senator of Arizona. We're going to flip that seat with the drive and leadership of Donald Trump to make him his candidacy front and center, just like he did out west in my home state of Nevada to Adam laxalt. We're going to do similar out west. We're going to take the west back and we're going to take America back while we do that because we have people who care about the border, people who care about economics and people who care about tramping down illegal narcotics that are killing our youth at record numbers due to Chinese fentanyl flowing in from Mexico. And I know Arizona was excited to have president Trump here. But he had to push it a week because of the loss of his passing of his ex-wife. So it's very sad. And he's doing okay. And the trooper that he is. He's just going to push it a few days and he'll be out west with us in a week or

"Maria bartiromo and Marsha Blackburn exposing the Biden crime family. This is all part of it, by the way. The Biden family is the best example of elite capture that we have. They've been totally captured by the Chinese Communist Party. They're held hostage by the Chinese Communist Party. They do what they want. Play cut 20. Let's take a look at that right now because I have a graphic of what appears to be Joe Biden's China policy. First, we know that the family reportedly accepted $31 million at least from deals in China. That is from hunter's laptop. And senator Ron Johnson's investigation and Peter Schweitzer's reporting fails to demand any COVID origins investigation. We have no evidence that Joe Biden ever brought up the origins of COVID to Xi Jinping in the 5 phone calls that he's had. He's failing to call for an end of the fentanyl trafficking. I have not heard him mention fentanyl wants to fentanyl is made in China, pushed through Mexico into America. And it continues. He has canceled the China initiative. This was an initiative that was investigating the continued Chinese intellectual property theft. He's considering lifting the tariffs on China imports. He sent oil from America's strategic reserve to other countries, including China, and he is pushing electric vehicles solar panels and batteries, aggressively in his climate change agenda and many of those are made in China. And that's just part of it. Good for Maria bartiromo for saying that. And not to mention our elites do business with China, BlackRock is heavily invested in China, our corporate masters are intertwined with China. Bought and paid for by the Chinese Communist Party. And if I was China, I think that last email was super smart, I would try to do everything I possibly can to try to incite division and chaos here domestically.

They would not say, would you like fruit in your? No, no, no. They would just put fruit in the club. They pour their wine out to a bit and hand it to you that way.

And you do like a boat ride through this canyon. And it's one of the biggest canyons on earth. They say there's like at some points. The walls go up. It's a thousand meters. So I guess that's something like 3000 feet or 3200 feet. Yeah. So yeah, you're voting through this massive canyon. And there's a lot of trees and kind of like jungle vegetation on the sides, you see monkeys, like kind of swinging through the trees.

"Have the capacity to do that. How we build this capacity is an ongoing political debate. Many ideas have been floated, like increasing funds for child welfare professionals, translators, and medical staff at border facilities. And initiating community housing programs to limit the use of detention centers. Many of these ideas might be effective, but big change is a hard sell on both sides of the border. One important step is recognizing that it's a shared problem. The migrants seeking asylum have escaped persecution and violence in their home countries. And in order to get to the U.S., they need to cross through Mexico. As a result, Mexico has had to shoulder significant burdens of its own due to the migrant crisis, and it's scrambling to find a solution just as the U.S. is. Misunderstanding about shared problems emerges as a theme over and over again in U.S. Mexico relations. And that is certainly the case when it comes to another issue that is persisted for decades. Drug trafficking and gang of islands more than 300,000 people have been killed in Mexico since the start of the U.S. led war on drugs in 2006. And today, Mexico continues to make headlines as one of the most dangerous countries in Latin America. The fish is along the southern border, say Mexican drug cartels are moving much larger shipments of drugs into the U.S.. The amount of fentanyl and especially dangerous substance that was confiscated by the Texas Department of Public Safety jumped 800% in just one year. Security is a huge issue in the U.S. Mexico relations. And it goes both ways. Mexico has since the late 80s through the 90s, become one of the biggest sources of drugs that are imported into the United States, starting with marijuana and cocaine and then moving in the 2010s to meth and then today, much of the fentanyl that comes into the United States from abroad comes through Mexico. It's the precursor to come from China, mostly, but they come through Mexico, so it is a huge source of illegal drugs that come into the United States. On the other side, the United States ships back lots of money that pays for those drugs as well as guns that go to Mexico that many of these cartels and organized crime by. So there's a illegal trade happening in both directions. Both of them, problematic and harmful to the two societies on other side. And what we see, obviously, we have huge classier in the United States due to illegal drugs and particularly in recent years, the rise of fentanyl, we saw 70,000 Americans die last year from fentanyl and opioid overdoses. In Mexico, we saw record hide homicides last year as well and largely tied to organized crime and just the violence. That's associated with illegal activities. Drug trafficking being one of them contraband being others, human trafficking and migrants, as well as other types of legal activities, especially extortion and others on the ground. So insecurity on both sides of the border, feed into each other and make both countries less safe. It's a tragic feedback loop, and the United States contributes to it and complicated ways. For example, it's estimated that half a million guns are smuggled from the U.S. to Mexico each year. The problem is so severe that the Mexican government has filed a lawsuit against several U.S. gun companies, alleging that they knowingly supply the criminal gun market. The fact that the United States has not been able to curb the sale of arms to the Mexican cartels has become an irritant. From a Mexican point of view, I don't think we have fully recognized our own fault and our lack of rule of law that obviously has allowed the Mexican cartels to grow and be all powerful. And they are even a threat to the state. In 2020, there were 34,515 homicides in Mexico. A per capita rate several times higher than in the United States. In the most recent midterm election, 89 politicians, including 35 candidates were killed. And that's not all. According to Mexico's national search commission, there are nearly a 100,000 unresolved cases of missing people in the country. A problem that goes back decades. It's difficult for me to imagine a reality in which organized crime has so much power, a world where it might be a relatively common experience to have a friend or a loved one disappear and to suspect or know that it likely involved a cartel. Yeah. I think it's a horrible reality and in Mexico it is a reality that a lot of people have lived. I mean, you probably remember the case a few years ago in which a student just disappeared. And they have not been found. Their bodies were burned or what happened to their bodies is really unclear yet. There has not been a full investigation as to what happened to those students. But it is the reality of a lot of mothers in Mexico have taken upon themselves to go out and find their own loved ones and they have found mass graves in which they have done the work to identify what are the remains of their own family members. It is a reality unfortunately for a lot of people in a lot of Mexican communities. Do we see the U.S. and Mexico cooperating on security problems? So you have some Mexico have had moments of close cooperation on this. In fact, in 2007, 2008, we saw a whole new initiative called the merit initiative, which was signed between at the time president Calderon in Mexico and bush here in the United States that really opened up security cooperation in ways that hadn't been there for many years. That has in more recent years fall in somewhat by the wayside. In fact, the current president Lopez over door. And his one minister said that it's not working and they want to renegotiate at all. And you see frustration in the U.S. capitol on the Congress, as well as the executive branch in security cooperation, attenuating or dissipating in recent years. So I think this is a real challenge for the two countries because it is so tied. You can't fix the problem in one place without also addressing it in the others. So the security cooperation, there have been strong moments in the bilateral relationship and in the history. But today isn't one of them. Trade, migration, drugs and security. These are complex challenges that hit deep political nerves in both Mexico and the United States. And their persistence through the years raises questions about how leaders on both sides of the wall are handling the relationship..

"mexico " Discussed on Why It Matters

"Opportunities that were created in Mexico on a yearly basis. That's right, Mexico is close to net zero in terms of immigration to the United States. Though that fact is often lost in media coverage and political debate. The Joan has urged the Trump administration to immediately stop separating migrant children from their families at its border with Mexico. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. More than a 172,000 migrants were stopped at the border last month, the most in 20 years. So the migration today that we're talking a lot about in the United States and have been for the last number of years is not about Mexican migration as much, but it's about migration from other places that comes through Mexico. So since 2014, 2015, we have seen waves of central Americans coming up through Mexico to come to the United States. And we've obviously seen it just this last year in 2021 increases from Central America driven by violence and poverty and bad governance and corruption in all sorts of factors. Many central Americans are leaving and looking for life elsewhere in many polls in the United States. The biggest is spike that we saw in the northern border was migrants from Central America from the northern triangle. What we're seeing recently is that Mexico is not only an export country. It became a transit country, and now it is becoming a receiving country. So now Mexico also has its own problem to deal with when the fact is that a lot of the people that were not able to stay in their United States were to cross the border into the United States want to stay in Mexico and they have asked for asylum in Mexico. And this has put tremendous pressure into our own communities into our own governmental authorities that are trying to cope with thousands and thousands of people. So Mexico has a huge problem to deal with. And we don't have not even close to the resources nor the capabilities to really deal with this issue in a humane or in a professional manner. So recently we've seen lots of Haitians tens of thousands of patients coming. But we see people coming through Mexico from all different parts of the world. Sometimes as far as Asia or as Africa, but coming to Mexico and then coming up to the U.S. border, seeking asylum or seeking to come in through other means to try to find their way in the United States. So Mexico has become a gateway for migration to the United States. And so there's two things here. One is, that is a tension as we've seen in the United States, both in the U.S. trying to regulate the migration that comes in the United States. The other challenge is Mexico is absorbing tens of thousands indeed more than that of these migrants into Mexico. So they get especially central Americans get partway into Mexico. And then they end up staying there. As do Haitians as do others. So this is a nation that is a middle income country. It has its own challenges with poverty and job creation and the like, and they are absorbing now. Many migrants as well. So then are the U.S. and Mexico working together on immigration? The use of Mexico have been working together on immigration largely over the last few years to close or limit the movement of people into the United States across the U.S. Mexico border. We have seen over the last 9 or ten months under the Biden administration, some changes in those rules and the setting up and expanding of the immigration system at the border to process people in quicker and more comprehensive ways. So you're starting to see more families particularly and mothers and others with kids come through and be processed and brought into the United States. So there is cooperation on managing the system at the border. But I will say this has been one of the most difficult parts of the relationship because it is hard to do to know what to do and to build capacity to manage tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people that are flowing through. And one of the bigger challenges too is that.

"Mexico. So let's do a little Mexico one O one. If I know nothing about Mexico. What are some things that I should know? So in Mexico is our southern neighbor. We share a 2000 mile border with the country. It's of a country of about a 120 million people. It is a democracy, though recently has been struggling as such. This is Shan O'Neill. She's a senior fellow for Latin America studies at the council on foreign relations. When you look around the world, there's probably no country that affects more what happens day to day in the United States than Mexico. So the vegetables and fruits that are on your table that you eat every morning or every evening, the appliances that you buy, the other goods that you purchase that you fill your houses with. The communities in which you live and restaurants that are down the street, perhaps, and the broader culture, all of those things as well as today, some 11 million Mexicans and 35 million Mexican Americans who are a big part of the U.S. population. So the communities that so many of us exist in and around to are also tied to Mexico. It is our most important trading partner, head of Canada and ahead of China. It is important in terms of our shared environment along the border in terms of our industries as well as our waterways. And it is important in terms of security in terms of border security, but in terms of security overall and the joint fight against organized crime. Each of the connections Shannon just mentioned, are at times headline issues in the United States. But among them, the economic relationship may be the most important, and the least understood. In 2019, more than $677 billion in trade was conducted between Mexico and the United States, affecting 5 million jobs. Again, that's higher than overall trade with China in the same year. And underneath the big numbers, the ties go deeper. So today interestingly, when you look at products in the United States, Mexico and Canada are integral to the making of those products, and these countries are big buyers of U.S. goods and services when they make products. So, for instance, a product that comes in from Mexico, so it's imported into the United States from Mexico. On average about 40% of that product was actually made in the United States. So U.S. workers put things together that are then sent to Mexico to be assembled. If you look at products coming in from China, it's less than 4% that was made in the United States. So pretty much everything is made on the other side of the ocean. So Mexico and the United States are incredibly important to each other because they make things together. But this level of cooperation hasn't always been the case. And it's not something that should be taken for granted. Mexico if you look back in the 1980s, it was really a country that sold commodities in north to the United States, primarily oil and some agricultural products and it was a quite closed economy. So it had a lot of tariffs and other kinds of barriers that kept the U.S. from selling goods to the south. The big shift really happened in the early 1990s with the formation and signing of nafta. The North American Free Trade Agreement that brought Mexico, the United States and Canada together in a free trade region. And you see in the wake of nafta of the next decade, trade grow exponentially between the countries. And over these last 25, 30 years, the nature of that trade, not only is it grown fourfold, but it has also changed. So it's gone from commodities from selling oil from selling fruits and vegetables like which still are sold, but two advanced manufacturing products. So auto parts. And medical devices. And airplanes. And all kinds of other types of equipment and higher tech goods are now sold between all of these countries. How did life in Mexico change for people after the country embraced free trade? And what does that meant for the United States? I mean, let me just give you an anecdote. This is Mariana campero. She's an expert in the Americas program at CSIS. She's also the host of the Mexico matters podcast, and former CEO of the Mexican council on foreign relations, come exe. When I was a little girl, I remember my trips to the United States as one of the most incredible things in the world because I was able to buy U.S. candy. And, you know, my mother bought U.S. toothpaste and shampoos, and you know, it sounds trivial, but in Mexico we did not have in our shelves, U.S. products, or very little of them, and those that existed in Mexico were very expensive. So one of the things that nafta when it came into effect, it radically changed the lives of Mexican consumers because suddenly we were able to have every product from every part of the world and with the best quality at cheaper prices. More importantly, because of nafta, Mexico, especially the northern part of Mexico, which was closer to the United States and so therefore transferred costs were lower was able to develop, and it became a true manufacturing powerhouse. The Mexican economy was able to grow. It's northern parts at rates that were close to Asian countries. You know, some parts of the northern grew at 10%. That also allowed for a lot of the people in the south to move north to work in this maquiladoras or manufacturing facilities. Nafta eliminated taxes on imported and exported goods, as long as they met certain manufacturing requirements, allowing products, parts and services to be traded essentially for free. As a result, prices went down and choices became more abundant. This benefited businesses, shareholders and consumers, and many economists would say that on net, nafta was a good thing. But not everyone shares this opinion. Nafta was controversial from the moment it was signed, and over the years many politicians and many workers have blamed nafta for U.S. job losses. In a few moments, I will sign the North American free trade act and the law. Nafta will tear down trade barriers between our three nations. When you've got a 7 to one weight differential between the United States and Mexico, you will hear the giant sucking sound. Nafta is the worst trade deal. Maybe ever signed anywhere, but certainly ever signed in this country. Corporate America and the big money interests have told us that nafta is a good deal. I don't believe them. So in some political circles, I feel like nafta was also seen as something that cost American jobs is that the case? What's interesting? When you look at the decade after nafta was signed sort of the 1990s, jobs in all three countries increased. And the sales between all three countries increased. And in fact, Mexico was one of the biggest consumer markets for U.S. goods. Around 2001, that starts to change. And one of the big changes is that China comes into the WTO. And you see more and more goods coming from China to the rest of the world. So that we talk about here in the United States, the China shock and the effect that China had on U.S. goods and sales in U.S. jobs. Well, it had a similar effect and perhaps even a bigger effect on jobs in Mexico. So whole industries that were based in Mexico, textiles and toy making and shoemaking so much of that disappeared. And as it disappeared so did U.S. based suppliers that used to sell the leather for shoes or the high heels or the sorts of things down there. So you see the symbiotic relationship. So that first decade when China really wasn't part of the picture, you saw jobs increase throughout the three countries. Over the 2000s and into the 2010s, you saw jobs fall in all three countries, but in part because of challenges and.

"American women. Maybe women in texas who live close to the border could actually find themselves going to mexico to get the abortion services that they can't access in their own state. But from what you're describing it sounds like that's a pretty remote possibility at least in the near term. Yes that's right. The future of abortion access in mexico. That's something that's going to be decided over months and years not weeks right but you do have the distinct possibility that in texas where a new law essentially bans abortions after six weeks would have more restrictive abortion laws on the books than mexico where the supreme court has signaled that it would approve abortions up to twelve weeks into a pregnancy and what about the implications for other countries in latin and south america. Could this mexican supreme court ruling have implications for them as they consider the future of abortion in their own countries. Yes almost without a doubt. This ruling is going to have broad implications across latin america. Colombia's constitutional court will soon take up the issue of whether to decriminalise abortion beyond a couple of narrow exceptions and so this ruling in mexico is expected to be looked at there and just more broadly symbolically speaking. This is a really big deal. In latin america. Mexico is now on the road to becoming the most populous latin american country to allow the procedure so that may spark renewed efforts in countries where it remains illegal to fight that and it also may spark a backlash you may see renewed efforts by opponents to try to dig in and hold the line in places where the laws could change so it is without a doubt a major moment across this hemisphere and.

"That and it was. It was the funniest thing. Four o'clock in the morning. We were all wide awake trying to look like we weren't wideawake just praying that george didn't decide to let loose and he didn't and that's how we brought him in. The country injury says that the contraband brought back into the united states from these mexico. Trips was not just limited to goods and even animals. There was like a couple on one of those mexico trips. I it was nineteen. Eighty four brought back like two kids from mexico and how thought they were going into the anna wakey program or whatever happened in those kids that they vanished over abused readiness. For what i have. I never ever saw men. Mexico kids kids. They were put in the greek. That doc had personally and They were brought back to america. And taking the douglasville georgia. I never saw those. Here's carl more. We brought people back from mexico which was a pretty big deal. Thank some of them. Worked at anti-iraqi relationships with people down there and know people expected to see us every year. And you know would always take stuff down there for them. You know there's a lot of gift. Exchanging dow was another one of the things that and then he was good at. He did this with everybody. That was important and we would always buy jewelry down there. Yeah that would end up in the hands of various people as gifts. Carl says that the possibility of in awake you. Moving into mexico with another campus was something that was not out of the question. At the time. I think we could have had a mexico campus. We ended up buying a house down there. So i think the more was going to happen. There are there was an opportunity. And and i didn't distinguish that from from any other thing that you would do with an wakey funds you know. It was all the the same thing to me. One aspect of the mexico trip that was well known. Among the patients at anna. Wakey was an annual trip to a brothel as melinda doyle had mentioned in pachuca. They had a a strip on a hillside. That was their red light district. I guess you call it and on several trips. Anyway it i mean it was a regular thing. One of the big nutso secrets secrets. Was that you know that was part of the mexico trip but we would get everybody together and say you know kind of like a tonight's the night kind of thing and header would give a speech you know trying to coach everybody how to get through this in a way but ultimately it might have been It might have been something that could have been a positive thing for some people for some people it's terrifying and the reality of it was. It's a really really really for way to introduce somebody to that. Experience former patient. Chris mcknight remembers one such outing during his trip to mexico with dana wakey years. They took us to a house of Repu house prostitution. Whatever you wanna call it. This story is still kind of a tough one to tell so. I lost my virginity in pachuca mexican whorehouse. I was so scared. This's summer eighty-three. It's it's an now in these girls aside. I don't know what to do. I'm i'm a virgin scared shitless. I in alex. Probably hey congress you gotta go an incredible amounts of peer pressure crony gotta go in there and have sex with a woman and is just is just such a surreal at frightening situation. I really scared. Not cossacks me was a lot of baggage. Chris was another victim of sexual abuse at an waking by the hands of a counselor. Chris says that during this trip to a brothel his abuser had just been with the same woman. He was being pressured to have sex with. So i i had my first sexual experience with a woman. It's like my mind was so fucked up about sex at that moment in my life that the only safe woman i could have sex with the woman who had just had sex with the guy who had molested me. Here's before there's a lot of back it's right there. A lot of pain to girls like grandma had. He's trying to push his someone else's like push through the door. And i wanted to scream. I wanna cry. I wanted to run away. I was afraid scare. I was shaking. It was consensual. It was legal in mexico. No laws were broken. That there was a lot of heavy shit going on right there and i remember getting out and running down and throwing up and i didn't eat for a couple of days still have issues that situation. It's hard to make heads tails of it. It's really messed up situation. A teenager shouldn't have been put in. Here's former counsel. Ron doyle again. He says after seeing the effect the mexico trip had on one of his patients under his supervision he saw red flag i think probably the the real catalyst rhythm admire resignation was ahead of boy. Who is brought into on my group's after returning from a trip to mexico he had been considered a troublemaker and his previous group. But after this trip to mexico he just want off the deep end and so they put him in my group's thinking that that might might help. And i had been effective in helping kids get past problems like that so i worked with this kid and and he began to open up to me and tell me about some of the things that happened to him on that mexico trip which were just inexcusable. Physical abuse that our kids were used to help him because he wasn't cooperating. This was the apache around basically. They put him in a circle of other kids and would ask him questions and if he didn't answer properly railway basically beat him to a pole. Carl says that these so-called apache roundups a racially insensitive term to say the least or supposed to be another part of petters therapy one that he was told to lead. There probably a handful of times where i was actually physically involved with anybody. You know one of the things that that Header would talk about where the apache round up and we went through a couple of those. And that's where the group confronts and individual and ideas to be physical about. Ron says that after hearing about the mexico trim. He decided try to do something to help the situation and make known the atrocities he had heard about well of course stories about the trickster prostitutes and that kind of stuff so at that point i realized that there was a really ugly underbelly. They thought it was a wonderful program. That did a lot of good things for kids but also at ruining kids like this and so knowing dr powder was the one who was arranging all that stuff. I had no trust in him whatsoever. I wasn't sure what to do. So i wrote a letter to the board of directors thinking and these are community. People who don't really know what's going on here and they need to know so. I wrote a letter to the board of directors outlining my concerns and i was very careful not to say things that i couldn't back up but but just bringing attention to some things that i was concerned about. I assume that that letter had gone to the board and shortly thereafter..

"It's been a while twenty twenty next ten years ahead of us. Think it's going to be a good one it's going to be an exciting excite one. Certainly Le Change happening. I think it's for the better a few a few pin. Shall we say few easing into this new dimension that we're coming into now few pens along the way but I think long term. It's going to be good so I'm as I said coming at you from Mexico Zico so it's January. It's winter back home at call to wet. It's raining everyone's down in the dumps. No one's got money. You've got at the Post Christmas and New Year Blues. So where am I at. I'm in thirty degrees heat on the east coast of Mexico so so I hit the winter no winter person. Despite being born in the north east of England the winter is not my forte. I all I love sunshine. The hotter the better if it's twenty five degrees a more than happy in that four eight degrees in even as well but a hit the called despite Vajpayee northerner so. I'm in Mexico just avoiding the winter Z.. They're going to go to Thailand or Mexico but being to Thailand five times so I thought screw it a come to Mexico of only been here once before and it was only for like two and a half weeks so I thought I'd see a bit more of the country spent a bit more time here. Absorbing country country learning more about it and so on and trying to Learn a bit more Spanish. I am learning book Ito but I'm no very conversational national. I know the basics and know the swear words and so on but I couldn't have fallen conversation with someone that's for sure but he still got a little bit time left so by the time I fly back back to the UK in March. Maybe I will be more conversational in Spanish. The reason why I'm doing a podcast one. I haven't done one in a while. saw a day one to. I've had some horrendous kind of flu. It's just had me holed up in bed for being ill for about ten days but like being really for like three or four those those days and that was like when you hold up in bed. You've got the shivers. It was twenty five degrees and I was wearing a hoodie shivering myself. I had had terrible stomach pains all the horrible things that come with having the flu hallucinations sweating but freezing. Everything thing and just felt horrible. Both teach word after a visit to the pharmacy. I'm over the worst of it now. Still got a bit of a cough. Still call an eight a few do things but I think touch wood fingers crossed. I'm on the mend. which is good so I thought I'd do a podcast while I'm stuck in the apartment and while I can't go out and enjoy the beautiful beach and the beautiful weather? I thought I did a podcast on Mexico and for people who who may have not been here before they want to know a bit more about us maybe for people who you know might have been here. But they haven't been to the places I've been so Mexico is quite a big country. I think the population is it. Your million Spanish as a first language. Obviously whether it's in North America or Central America. I'M NOT A to Shula. Some people says Central America. Some people said North America. Personally I thought it was always North Surrey. Central America and I thought North America was Canada Eh in the US air. And then I thought went down into Central America like Mexico and Belize and then into South America where you have Brazil Argentina Argentina and Paraguay and so on but hey. I'm not sure whether it's North America Central America so I started off in Mexico City which is the capital and it's a huge city so even coming from London which is a big city very big city. Mexico is a huge city. I think in in total population. It's like twenty million. I think London in total population is like eight point five million so substantially bigger very busy having come from a a big city. Then I'm going to another big city like Mexico City. DidN'T WANNA stare too long like I. I wasn't in that big city mood so I only stayed there a week It's nice but I often find that every big city I go to. I've lived in London for thirteen years and every big city. I go to attend to compare era to London and to be honest. My personal preference is that London is the best city in the world. So once you've experienced London and and you go to other cities including New York in the as well like for me. There's no comparison so it depends what you're after but went to Mexico. City city spent a week. There had a friend who recently moved out because he met a girl and he'd been there for about two months so met with him and he kinda showed me around the best is governed again and yet he seems to be enjoying it. He was in the nice parts there are dodgy. Gee Parts and the nice parts like any really. I didn't feel particularly unsafe. I have my wits about me like I'm not stupid like you go to any city even when I was in London came about me when I'm walking around at night and so on getting ready to ruin if anyone's going to pull a knife out me or something like that But it's a good city. We good people. The weather's or care I mean for this time. The it's like twenty two degrees tops. which is good? It's Nice not too hot for the people who don't like the heat Certainly better than Europe this time of year as well So yeah spent spent a week them some cool people l. but again it was just like get me to the beach. My intention was always to go to the beach. So Mexico's of beaches. Actually I've got to costs or might have well. It's like the East Coast and the West Coast and then it's got like seven tips as well and on the West Coast. That's where you have like the likes of Acapulco as you probably heard of by the famous song from the air. Is I think it was the four tops. Wasn't going loco down in Acapulco so you have that side and then on the other side you have the likes of Cancun you have the likes of play del Carmen. Which is where where I currently am? And then you have to as well so I opted to go to the east coast so the Cancun pay del Carmen into side of things because one it's hotter so this side of the country taught at this time the so I knew I'd be getting to thirty degrees whereas on the other side it's only like twenty I five degrees and two. I'd been here before briefly. So it's been a couple of weeks in Playa del Carmen. So I knew what I was expecting and I really enjoyed it last time as here. Too Nice people had some good memories from its screw it. I'm here not to seek new places and go for adventure. I'm here. Hey to chill in the sun the gym do a little bit work rest. Some bear that get a Tan lose a bit fat that have put on of the winter into and just generally chill or and of course Lynn Spanish as well which I am doing very very slowly so spent a week in Mexico City but then decided decided to fly to cocoon Tony bowers. I think it's about two always flight if I remember correctly. So it's a two hour flight so Mexico is quite a big city in terms of geographical space So you can get flight all around the country so I flew out here at the at the end of November. So being here ever since and I've just recently just being chilling just being having fun down by the beach. Just she's been getting up to watch the sunset because we're at the side of the country where you see the sunset not the sunrise so I'm normally sunset person and of written about this before like I loosened sunsets. I love to watch a sunset love to see the single down. Then hey the cricket's come out and you see the the change in the clothes in the sky and across the water and just kind of puts you in a reflective mood and people change like I go through some kind of I guess you could say like spiritual kind of Falen as the sun's going down and that you hear that kind of a said the crickets coming up and I think people get a bit reflective like one more day over the finite number of days is that we all have and I've never really been a morning person so I've never really gotten a for sunset but because I'm on this side of the country this is what have to do so it was getting up at like six o'clock and while staying the beach was like a five minute walk. I love the fact that you know you can get up the morning. Put your shorts on put a vest on grab a coffee and just walk to the beach in while it's still dark takes you five minutes together and just watch soon rise some the sunrises pretty epic as well and again it's kind of a spiritual movement and you get a lot of people who down for the sunrise to and they go to watch churn I think. Yeah it's just something nice to watch and Kinda sets up the dare you look at their head in a more positive mood. Will I do so I I was doing that for quite some time yet. What Sunrise and then just chilling down the beach Dune like some cardio work signed up to a local gym eating good foods unhealthy foods? And of course when it's hot your body doesn't tend to want to eat too many calories but when you're in the cold light you are back home in the European eighteen winter. Your body just wants to see ten eight thousand fifteen hundred more calories per day than more e would in the sunshine just because he wants wants to go into that stavish put on a bit where to you know keep keep the cold out and so on so yeah. I've found that you know even being here like six weeks probably dropped eight nine pounds consciously as well because of his have been on the Jim too so this is my second time here first. Time was last year and I was quite apprehensive because like you I probably watch the news and saw the report heard about the gang violence and the murders and so on. And let's be honest honest. That does happen. It does happen in this country but thankfully like in the tourist areas depressive. Very safe actually. Like would I say say this with trepidation. That where I'm staying very safe. It's probably safe of London in terms of like if you look at the data in terms of crime and so on and So it depends on where you are in Mexico how dangerous it is and a lot of the murders are gang related gang on gallon so you have the cartels are generally not in this part of the country. They're up in the north need the. US border so the cartels a fighting of fighting. I know of a obviously drugs. Define over land the fighting over the rights to be able to you know get the jokes over to the the the. US border And it is pretty horrendous like in terms of the cartels. Hey they run the country. Almost there was an incident a couple of months ago where they tried to capture one cartel member and it ended up just being obsolete war between the military the Mexican military and the cartels tells unknown behold the cartels one so the cartels had more military power than the official military of the Mexican government which is quite scary in a wins quite shocking..
