Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine
"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington

How's that? For Beauty Pike? Wait to see you're going GonNa, take photos, of course, right of this tenth that goes on top of the car. Yeah. I can't remember the name of what it is. But like I'm kind of excited and we figured it was a safe mine has been safe. They're letting people in from New York. We're bringing our masks were camping by ourselves. So we can enjoy the outdoors safely, and that's like a good way to get away for just a little bit and like you know refresh don't roll off the car nervous. Very. Nervous thing back next week. Next week. We'll talk about it, but now we have a big juicy interview. Okay. Let's do now. I love Dr Paul Frank. He's amazing. He for full disclosure a good friend. He's a great friend, but he is also one of my most trusted dermatological sources. This guy knows every technology before everyone else I mean, I'm not. I'm being Harper, bollock because like I really think he's the best, but he really is like my go-to hotline to what's coming down the pipeline, what you know what the hot trends are. He just got his finger on the pulse and I'm so excited to bring him back for a second time. He is one of our only two time guests. We had him about three years ago to talk about all things like. noninvasive light Oh and we want to talk about his new book. Now, it's called the pro aging playbook Dr Frank is he works with lots of celebrities, and he's to discreet to name all of them and he also consulted lots of different big brands and not only is he fabulous? He is a board certified dermatologist though, but he's also clinical assistant professor at the icon. It can. Oh, God, Dr Frank Don't Kill Me School of. Medicine. At Mount, Sinai welcome Dr Frank. Dr Frank. You are one of the busiest Durham's out there. You've got a lot of celebrity clients. You've got a very big practice. You're always doing TV appearances. You you're a very big on TIKTOK. We know this. Okay. You're not doing your take type performances. Why did you decide that you needed to write another book I? mean, that's big. Endeavor. Temporary Insanity. I coned wrote a book nineteen years ago when there were these new things that were experimental called. In. Stiller. And after the work out like okay. And I check off the box to do that again. But I wrote a second book because the had an idea to go against the grain a little bit and write about something that people would expect the lease from a beauty book and certainly one from Cosmetic Dermatology book, and that is hopefully with pro aging playbook is all about. All. Right. So I WANNA to talk about the title, the title when you told me the title I kind of like like I I, got like a like you definitely caught me off guard, but the title pro aging playbook because there's been a lot of discussion about the term Teijin. The past couple of years, we had Michelle Leon, the editor in chief of allure about a year and a half ago, and she put a huge stake in the ground. By saying, we are banning the term anti-aging. She wants to ditch entirely in the background, a lot of press, and you're going a step further. Further and you're saying pro aging. What does pro aging mean while it? Basically a backlash to the negative stigma that generations of people have had toward agent and I think a lot of it is just one big marketing ploy, the term anti-aging. The fact that aging is a bad thing and we have to inject laser moisturizers. Serum is extra dies Diet, get back to a younger state and to me the biggest events I've seen in my field is not injectables. Lasers is in the outlook in perspective we have towards beauty now, which I think is a very positive thing and it can be empowering. Up The audience out there, that has not gotten over the stigma. That is what I'm trying to achieve in the pro aging label and one that I don't think you'd expect from someone like, Ray.

It may be the dog days of summer for most of us, but the folks at Hershey are already up to their necks in Halloween earlier this month Hershey announced it's Candy Lineup for horrors high holiday some of the ghoulish goodies include vampire themed Hershey, kisses stuff with red strawberry cream, and Reece's Franken cups which have a green creme dement flavored bottom. But the candy maker also has a haunting concern if covid nineteen continues to cancel in person celebrations what will Halloween Twenty Twenty look like Dad. Insult to injury the holiday falls on a Saturday this year. So little ferry princesses, pirates and ghouls could've stayed out later collecting more candy for their late night sugar rush without worrying about school the next day. Now it's unclear if people will be comfortable handing out goodies to trick or treaters at all, even with ample squirts of hand sanitizer in between. So Hershey is hedging its bets in an earnings call last week CEO. Michelle said the company is reducing production of Halloween, themed candy to avoid. Leftovers Wall Street Journal reports Hershey's earnings did beat expectations this quarter booze stead by pandemic comfort food buying and buck says that Halloween orders from retailers or strong. So she's optimistic that sales won't be too bad. Still The holiday makes up about ten percent of the company's revenue of that trick or treating generates have of the company's Halloween sales.

Will Will decimate decimate public public safety. safety. Here Here is is the the simple simple math. math. We We know know this this for for certain certain that that 80% 80% of the police budget pays for officer's salaries. So the police chief as well as the police union will tell you if you cut that in half. You're going to lose hundreds of officers, and we're hearing anywhere from 700 to 800 could potentially be fired. The Seattle police officers go president told me he gets it. People want reform and they work for the people. So we've got to make some reform here, but he calls de funding the department by 50%. Just unrealistic and political. If council approves of 50% cut in this year's budget, they allege again, it would meet 800 officers would be fired. That's 800 out of 1300. And they argue, it would mean longer Wait times for 911 calls and an increase in crime. The chair as Chop failed experiment. Would look like child's play compared to cutting up to 800 officers from the SPD due to the council's naive and dangerous proposal to remove 50% of a budget. Who will answer that night. No one call. You're gonna wait. We gonna wait and wait and wait. The mayor has called for a 5% cut to this year's budget, or $20 million cut. But right now we know seven of nine council members have pledged to support a goal of cutting the police budget this year by 50% but it is a work in progress. And they're taking in a lot of input. So now really is the time for counsel to hear from you. The chief has also been on the record, saying that these kinds of cuts would actually decimate public safety. That's commas. Michelle
Hollywood's Good Looking Debate
"There is a great Hollywood debate igniting as we speak and we need to talk about it. So it started with this tweet from one of the executive producers of one day at a time asking what male actor is the perfect level of good looking. But also seems fun funny and Goofy twitter collectively seems to think the answer is Paul Rudd. D You guys agree with that? I do. Agree with I. That is like the perfect. He's handsome. He's attractive. He's not intimidatingly attractive. But he's cute and he's also has a lot of personality. So he's just like he's he's Fine look you know what I mean like he's not like the sexiest man alive, but he's got something. Out. Here. Beers. I think he is sexy and especially when he did a man and he was only like chicken breasts, Barroga's leading up to it with all training. Okay. He turned to ninety Zadie looks going on. Who would be your picks? Yes and who did you pick? You know what is going to have to go down a rabbit hole. So follow me here. My pick was Chris Threat back in parks and rec days where he was a goofy and hard. But didn't know he was hot before he got around all hank, we'll see. The hottest NF heiress God is at that time and you know the minute he got hot s. she was like wait what. I didn't sign up for this. This is not what I wanted to go back to the. Keep on eating your Rama noodles like do not get on this diet. So. Unfortunately. The Globe show inevitable like it just happens. No matter what and it's. It's so welcomed by the person that's going through. But the people surrounding it is like I did want this. I chose Zach braff. I don't know. He was the that popped into my mind. Don't you think that makes sense like he's definitely sexy, but not overtly sexy, and he's just he has more of a specific luck. He's not liked so like he's kind of on that call ride. Oh this. Never, thought that he could. Kind Kinda. See when he's in a good suit like right there in the nice tie women minute. We were we supposed to pick someone that wasn't like overtly beautiful, but just like attractive, like has a thing. It's. Assignment I guess. So everyone just. Zach Braff to be employed. That's when he is at his sexiest is when he's consistently employ and that hasn't happened for quite some time. So he's not that sexy anymore. Why? Don't they every time I do see that graph weather that Craig I saw him at the Hollywood bowl, he always had the hottest girl with him.
Clean Beauty in the Era of Misinformation With Cosmetic Chemist Jen Novakovich of The Eco Well
"So we're really starting to see this awakening of cosmetic scientists within the scientific community. You know really standing up and speaking out against the wellness industry as you said, and clean beauty marketing on social media and on Youtube. So what are your thoughts about this movement as part of the movement does really bubbling up right now? I think it's Great I. Think this is one of the positives that is coming from the clean and wellness space or quote Unquote Green. Space it is frustrating scientists and we're now starting to show up in forced on social media. It's also fostering collaboration communication on. Its fostering creativity where now starting to think I know at least I am, how can we reach better? Can Moore's? That's for example, influencing the influencers in bringing them on our team so that we can make this information marks. So that's something I. Think is really interesting in a positive. That is coming from the misinformation that is kind of overwhelming Not, just in our industry, it's kind of overwhelming through air right and do you believe the word clean should be removed from the beauty lexicon or is there use for that language? I would love for it to be removed. It perpetuates so much undue fear. It puts a lot of blame on consumers. It reinforces the idea that. If something bad happens in someone's life. It's because of the products they were saying they were purchasing dirty products and then they eventually got cancer. It's your fault because you wrong products. That's toxic I personally think in really unhealthy, it gives people a lot of anxiety. And a lot of the Times. The anxiety is undo because the products are demonstrably safe. They're pulling fearmongering to capture that idea from consumers like we wanna buy the best things for our family. We WanNa buy things that are going to damage the environment. These are things that we're all. With good cause concerned about right and like. I would love for it to be removed because ultimately the movement. From what I've seen I, believe is underpinned by pseudoscience in how can we move forward to do better if we're not actually informing our decisions by actual scientific evidence your whole subject matter is all about scientific communication. So what about the words chemicals when you hear about chemical free and that sort of thing and beauty? Why is it so loaded? Well it is waving it on a play that they don't have that science literacy that I think we learned in high school. Maybe even grades little that things are made up of chemicals. Chemicals are the building blocks of life in. So it's perpetuating science illiteracy. And misinformation because everything Beta matter are made up of chemicals rate. When we're thinking about the space of wellness would like multibillion dollar industry now and I think again, this movement that's happening with scientists where they're like, Hey, guys, let's attack some of this misinformation going on. Do you think that there is still any room for anecdotal evidence in your mind like small batch brands that are coming out there like this whole line is based on Aloe, my grandmother used to use it on my wounds or you know real women are writing reviews, online or beauty journalists who have tried hundreds of products just being like I. Love this product like. Is. There any room for that anecdotal evidence? Because that's the only thing is sometimes I'm like you know, does that mean we should only listen to scientists or what's your take on that? No. I. Mean Anecdotal Evidence has its place in Michelle from lab muffin beauty science wrote a great blog, but she has an instagram post. I, think she also has a video on this but. I mean, you can't be so scientific about the stuff because a, there's not that much science to substantiate every single thing in life including in cosmetic products. Everybody's different surf. You like product, which you're GonNa like out of your anecdotal experience than you should use the product that you like. Reviews feedback from customers. To brands as I'm formulating I received anecdotal experience through a reviews from my clients to make a product. So it's important. It's just not something when we're making statements about, for example, this ingredient will interact with Awka pour in your skin cells to enhance cellular hydration. Various claim that should be substantiated with scientific evidence, but this ingredient is going to help or this product should I say is going to help manage Eczema or acting while when you're putting those names on the label. Probably, that's scientific evidence should come in. That's why these products are generally regulated as drugs in cosmetics, but only anecdotal evidence does have a place because that's what informs whether like me like something we don't in just because one product has so much evidence an Mike how much evidence you really have product, but just because it has so much evidence shouldn't. It doesn't mean that everyone out there is going to like it in. Every ruins

It's great to have you nice to be here in virtually exactly so josh and I have both spoken very very favorably of the film, actually our favorite film of the year so far between us, and we both talked about it as almost a parable, a movie that in a story that seemingly very simple, the kind that maybe could even be passed down orally, and without any heavy-handedness or easy moralizing impart. Truths are we on the right path? Do you see I cal that way? I'm. A visual person so. Making it is a audible story I. How came from Jonathan Raymond's novel? The half life. I I'd have to think about it. I haven't thought about it in those terms of course moist thinking about it in images. Yes, so When you say. It's your favorite film. I don't know why you have to qualify it and say so far to stop watching other things. But seems fair. That seems fair. I'm sure you're like A. I think all those qualities topping out exist? I just yeah. I haven't thought about it. In terms that of course I I think maybe a better way to phrase that would have been if if you think about it and I know that this sounds almost like it's simplifying, but whether or not you think about this project, or any other is in terms of imparting kind of lesson, or is there. Is there some? Is there something you were trying to teach to the audience? No No. No I don't think so. I mean I. Know I would not want to think in those terms I mean I hope it has. Layers to it that there's things to think about and Questions to ask as far as. I mean ultimately I think like to focus on the friendship and kept blake quote in the beginning. That's in John's. Novel to remind myself that ultimately are making a film about friendship, and there are these teams of capitalism and You know running through out the new the but It has to be considered like just figuring out how to do seem sort of. Where the power lies in a scene, so it's not like I'm not thinking about those things, but I'm Only, in terms of how they relate to cooking, King Lou not in terms of.

Know we as cautioned designers, we are behind the scenes, and nobody really knows what our job really titles I think. It's kind of hard. You know what war goes into it in the preparation, and really all the creativity that has really come from Ma to create these characters from pages of the script they. They really just kind of very vaguely are described to us, and we really have to kind of be the psychologists kind of like a you know a detective to find out who they are deeply. You know their psychology were they went to. School may be no place in live there in right now and you know where they shop apartment they have you know once their journey right now in the film you know. Article to character to you know so. It's really a lot of lot of details that goes into. People don't really understand you know I think it's. It's one of a mysterious job in the way Oh. Yeah, absolutely so I. Mean You said you're making the rounds? You're all over vogue. You're all over instagram. People are are recreating favorite clueless moments. And I mean what does it feel like to have been part of a film that is still so much a part of pop culture even to this day after two decades it still so fresh and so relevant, and so loved is incredible I mean it's truly it's like A. One lifetime situation lighting that one can have that that something. Do you do out of love? You know because you don't set up to do the best session film of the universe but right. Thing, you know you, you I mean I. Am at fashion designer from training, and then I got into the question. Quebec doorway, and you know when I met amy on the pilot pilot and get picked up tablet. We creatively just connected so strongly. She loved it I was in Europe. I grew up in Europe. Seven different point of view fashion more European, and that's what the film needed. So when she wrote she called me, said the girl. I really want you to do this. To bring something so fresh and fashion forward something that's not on the street. Because of the time it was all grunge. She knows all everybody was wearing their. PLATIN- Baggy Pants, and was oh. Kurt Cobain Nirvana and of fashions in the street, so those nothing to go from everything had to be invented, not taken from the runways Paris Amina Milan share. Would the only probably daddy flew her there? She probably had the tickets in the on the day and was able to know things that she liked then everything had to be translated into the high school. Because you know amy is director of the night. I want this to be very useful, very. Very very sweet, very feminine. You know girly and that's kind of what we are changing from French fashion. Forward. Of course, it had to felt high school's head to sell their young girls because they had to feel pick, and I think part of the love for this film to the, even though they're a high fashion, and that is amazing of funded. As they felt authentic, the they really were beloved in the end that you knew who share was nearly the aunt was and out of. That feeling that emotional feeling thing, and that's why the film has lived so long because it's such emotional connection that people have to film you know with the fashion with kind of making you feel good. You know talking with a friend the other day like where does movies? We need more of those you know. The never been kissed. Michelle held to lose a guy in ten days. Almost fun movies.

Okay it's so nice to chat to you too. I think the last time we bumped into one another was in London somewhere yeah we it was kind of Iranians Barkley scree. I remember an other. We were just walking along conduit street or something and I remember bumping into you and Doug you were with Doug at the time try and I thought that sexy lovely with the figure some figure so go ahead tablet really late card bike say but saw that running that you're doing I don't well. I have run for a long long table but we have. We met years ago on. I think we first met at the Scottish fashion awards which was an event stirling castle time and thirty years ago. Maybe hope it was a long time ago. It was an things have definitely changed for you in that time. Let me tell you look if you are you know who? Michelle is and you knew. Exactly Machel's journey then. You'll probably be aware of this but Michelle as well as being an amazing businesswoman has also just completely transformed. I hope you don't you. Don't mind me saying this. Michelle literally taken on health and fitness. And you have completely transformed and your physical appearance as well. And just in terms of getting fitter and healthier. Yeah well you know. My Week journey started a long time ago and I did lose quite a bit of weight and then I didn't really understand what food was and it can do for you. The right things to eat and what was bad for you and never really used to exercise then and we went up again and only really got myself together probably in the last year because I was getting in total fit sheep for my waiting. Which was last Saturday new so I just started to really walk and then power walk an started to George a little bit and I just sat myself. Goes every and sense. Lockdown have been there every single day seven days a week and I absolutely love it and my figure is the best. It's ever been in my whole life but it's not just the mental state and helps me focus on business more F- I'm really really stressed. You know I just record. I run comeback completely different Paerson. Yeah it's amazing. How has that affected absolutely? Where are you in lockdown at the moment eh well we live between London and the Isle of Man so when we came to the iowan almost eaten CITGO or seven weeks ago. Closed the border so we are here and and the family is in Scotland and the family other parts of the London So they're all over the place at the moment thank goodness for Feast Team Zoom. It's been really good is a difficult time isn't what everyone's been separated but interestingly I think there are more people keeping fit and active than ever before because we all have time on our hands. I guess a little bit more than we usually do. Yeah you have to if you are working from home. You're at home no no even more. Can you have to keep yourself seeing and I think fitness keeps you positive? It just makes the go faster as well. I think if you get up in the morning and you have no sense of purpose and you know that's where things start to get wrong for me if if I don't do my fitness vity I can't perform in business So I have to be really really disciplined an inter routine adult like enough not got routine. January completely understand that in fact you know they'll be a lot of people listening a lot of people listening now. Will they run as well? So who to you? You are starting off on your run right this minute. Hopefully you'll be massively motivated listening to Michelle Chabert running and but also I know a lot of people that do work in the business sector will ever kind of light rule. They have the actually find it really difficult to fit fitness into their daily life. Because work does take over. Hoji manage it first of all? I got daily plan we plan. I know what I'm going to be doing. Of course things pop up that you know you're not expecting a and then when it comes to my fitness started treating my body lake a business so several businesses and I know what to do with them all so I just thought my body. I'M GONNA treat my body Laker business. I'm going to give it the right foods. I'm going to give it the right nutrition and exercise and everything else and it really does work for makers noted on their business know how to run my body. Does that mean that you have to then kind of like allocate a certain the date to that the body business well in the morning since lockdown been getting up in the morning of been going into the gym? Fortunately we have a gym but if people listening don't have a gym we've been mixed up by going to the gym or going. Say To boot camp and then in the afternoon then we'll go in and do some powerful work in a Home Office and then I'll meet Doug for healthy at lunchtime and then in the afternoon we do a bit more work and then see the. We hit the gym again or BOOT camp. You know if we've done that in the morning we swap around and then after dinner we'll go out for a good early in the half walk so either a boot camp or running or we just mix up signs that you didn't lose every day as well well three parts of exercise so it's either running or Jim or camp or walking or running so yeah we just want to three parts a d. and an ESA pause. It's we can't do that lockdown at the moment because we're on a plane all the time everybody would just about on a plane or train or something so we're using the team to really be clear to businesses. Think about new engines and think about our bodies and a lot more. What's good expired. I've an ideal of the fact that you're when you say we it's you and doug do know the exercise together then presumably. Yeah well we don't go to the gym together. We do the BOOT camps together. We do running together. We do the power walks together but we don't do gym together because it that's enough where we're very competitive in the boot camps is. He's an entrepreneur. I'm an entrepreneur. And you're not GONNA win. He's thinking you're not GonNa win either so it can be a really powerful over. I'm exhausted line on the gas after they ever. I'm impressed that you even do. The bit counts together. I mean if my husband and I were to go into smick size we would last five minutes before for some reason we'd full. I don't even know what it would be a just. It's wants to Komo running. And he wanted to run my God. I literally think we lasted half of my own. And then he stopped. I ran off and that was it. He came home about an hour and a half later. So we just do not exercise together. Ever think I'm hoping it's not just me and him the argue if we work together so. I'm impressed that you too can do that. Successfully oversaw competitive but it. We almost had a fight last week. When you know those bands that you put round and you Chai we do. Partner is a partner bootcamp so You know he puts the the ban drone these waste and I'm poonam You know and then you swap Biden's bond snapped and it them right in the slot. Tom Right in the face so that would be screaming and I said well. It's not my fault by just not so. Don't you start so you can often huff with a laying across his face. Oh Mike those bands or when they snap oh my goodness they do really abandoned. Maybe I need to invent a band that doesn't snap and what what's involved in the boot camp. Where else did and so? We do. A lot of spent running so we have a bowl and a heavy bowl and a big bowl and we have skipping ropes. We have two months we have weights. But you know you can say all this up for less than maybe eighty pounds and the bands. We have the bands as wheel know every we have different socket training. They mix all up the next day. We can pull things a heart either. He's holding me under my my setups. I'm holding him and you know it's quite good fun. It is and when we first we work together years ago because Michelle you used to. Do you still involved with Ultimo. Toll Nine No. I sold the company five years ago and I got my life back which is fantastic and I lost stolen and and two pounds. So I'm over the moon. Well assize to as ten so I don't really want not company back again folks. Well when you when you did have that company and I did. I did a job for you when you're there and I did a campaign for you and I remember when you asked me to do this. Underwear campaign was really terrified because generally didn't do to graphs in underwear and it was something that filled me with fear more than anything and the only reason I did. I think was because I was Meyerson trading and I was running a lot and I had more body confidence then I'd had previously but simply through running wasn't through like dieting in advance or thinking about what was eating. It was literally through doing exercise. Have you find that since you started running your whole body? Confidence has changed as well festival. You made a beautiful stunning model. I knew are perfect so with employ again for another campaign if you went to do when I come back into the laundry industry and but since I've lost we have got fit well first of all. It's your main doesn't If you can start the show and getting his nuts half the battle and since the you know my body shape is changed but my confidence has changed. My happiness is changed and I'm so happy around everyone and that means that everyone else's happy is when I was measurable everyone else's mushroom so your weight and your fitness has a big impact in your means on.
"michelle l" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"This is their idea that we go around remaking the world making the world safe for democracy and I just I wish Libertarians would get a little bit more credit for having been right on this issue and that. Yeah this is a problem of big government. You got all of these. Deep State organizations lying to people propagandizing them and the troops are the ones who end up suffering. So I understand what you're motivated by compassion for the troops and wanting to support them but they're the ones who end up suffering for all this stuff and look at every theaters. We have nothing to show for it after all of this after all the trillions of dollars the thousands of lives that we've sacrificed not to mention the hundreds of thousands of lives of people in these regions who had been slaughtered. We have nothing we don't have one even quasi victory to show for it and they still go on. Yeah I'll I'll say this I mean I think it's Steve Sailer who Sort of distilled Everything that's wrong with neo conservatism With the phrase invade the world invite the world and You know Over the years you know going through my libertarian phase. And this sort of you know mainstream Free market conservative. You know Americans for prosperity phase and we talked talk more about that know in a second To where I am now firmly on the side of America I I think that We need to stop sending soldiers overseas to countries that hate us and we need to stop importing people from countries that hate us And it's really that simple. I think with regard free market economics and certainly. That's where I came from like I said you know being read on Milton Friedman and You know sort of essentially the The Wall Street Journal take on things You know when I was an early columnist for the La Daily News and the Seattle Times. You always very gung. Ho On writing columns about you know. Local Hareb Raiders who were oppressed by regulations and and such and I was a big cheerleader for school. Choice for example which is one of the biggest pet projects of Dc BASED LIBERTARIAN GROUPS. And then I realized what was really going on and it goes back to the idea of the virtue signaling of creating the semblance of conservatives whether when I said that a lot of them are motivated by good faith. I'm talking about Blake. The rank and file right you are donating to these types of groups right but the project is It is a prerequisite to being conservative inc that you have to prove your Bona Fides someone who is not quote unquote racist and of course now. Definition of that is is is really. What's you know what's at the heart of of the problem here with with connick and I'd think about okay? Why why why is it? Why is cato pushing the hair ratings thing and why is foster freeze and T P USA and by the way Donald Trump of course made it part of his State of the Union right school choice of of all the things of all the things and And to me I'm I'm horrified to think of what what this actually has Manufactured because again nerves the sort of this guilt factor that your average white Republican faces when they question all of the donor class agenda for example. I was at a meeting in Texas where foster freeze was and he came in to a a group of of Texas grassroots. Moms and DADS who've been fighting What is still you know they call it. They say the common core is dead. It is not okay. And here's where I think that Libertarians and you know American first is when I call it myself America I. I'm not talking just about national sovereignty. I'm talking about parental and family sovereignty. I think these things go hand in hand and I think that the subversion of parental and family sovereignty by Con- INC Which is the Republican Party? And all of these large corporations working on together Is is is one of the most Little noticed an on fought battles. People really don't understand what's happening under the rubric of school choice. It's really a way of exploiting This partnership between these corporations and They government I. And so what you're doing is you're you're robbing Parents of the ability to defend their own kids or in the case of you know small business business owners to say well. What about us? Because you have to show that you're for you know the Hareb. Raiders ended the inner city. Kids in Milwaukee does that make me racist To say it now because you know when I'm sitting in a room of parents that are largely white and working class or middle class and have the same aspirations for their kids to achieve the American dream as the ones they're favored by these libertarian groups. It makes me wonder the real racists are Oh no I mean look agree with you on that. I mean on many different levels number one. It's just if you are a libertarian. It's such A. It's such a petty issue to spend all this time on like I'm against the government licensing against all of it. I think it's stupid. And it does hurt people. But it's like the government's about to spend five trillion dollars. It's like the biggest government in the history of the world and when people start on these my Oh my God it drives me crazy and I gotta say I think his father is like a hero but even when Rand Paul starts going on about how. We Spend. Three million dollars researching like fish. Dna or something in your com on man like you have a microphone and a platform talk about something that matters like there is just such huge. Such you know way more important issues and I do think that there is something about look just like I've said this before and I've gotten in trouble for this but I guess two things number one I don't understand and this is something that is out there. It's not amongst all libertarians Some are more based if you will and some of them are more want to appeal to the Social Justice Warrior wing which will never accept you. I just don't understand the idea of trying to like you will never be accepted by the left. It's like okay are you. Are you saying you're four trans rights or something like that? Oh well you're against obamacare. Then you want babies too. It doesn't matter like you're still you're still going to be a Nazi to them. So don't don't even waste your time. But the libertarian. Kind of fixation unperceived. Racism which is this intentionally broad word used by status. I mean like you know this. You know the biggest status amongst US love calling everybody a racist now when you mean racism like what do you mean? Do you mean slavery. Do you mean genocide. Do you mean like some horrible state action. Okay then great. Let's all be against that but if you're talking about someone's like personal preference who they want to hang out with. Who THEY WANNA live around who they WANNA beat. Well first off Libertarian. You've got a problem because that's a free choice. And you're supposed to believe in freedom of association and people have a right to prefer what they want to. So there's a problem but why are you obsessing over this as like the big concern and the only answer seems to be what you're saying that it's like this attempt to virtue signal to try to be like? Hey Look I'm not one of these bad people. Meanwhile the ones who you know like like I'm one of these people who's been antiwar for over a decade now meanwhile the policies of the Hillary Clinton John McCain's who call everybody else racist is actually to slaughter people in Brown countries and get our own people killed at the same time. Maybe that should be like a little bit more of an outrage and the other thing I'll say just real quick and then you can. Respond is also by the way. Just stop it if you'RE GONNA talk about racism fine but how about the be consistent if you hate racism how about the hatred of white men that is just pushed on our culture and completely accepted and by the way Libertarians? Just even whatever you believe. It's not a great strategy. You're like ninety seven percent white men so maybe you shouldn't go along with demonizing. What is your entire base may just for purposes. If nothing else yes all right guys. Let's take a quick break. I want to tell you about our awesome sponsor which is easy. Dns It's a web hosting platform and domain provider. That will defend your right to exist. We talk a lot about it on the show cancer culture being platforms even having your website taken down. We've been talking about it this episode as a content creator. It's scary to think that your youtube twitter even your web hosting provider can take away your ability to put out content to interact with your own fans tech companies can completely undermine your ability to make a living because you have a different point of view. And that's why I wanNA tell you about Mark Jeff. Tobin new book unassailable March of. Toby is a lifelong libertarian. The CEO of easy DNS and has been writing about technology challenges to our freedom on his blog access of easy now in his new book. Unassailable mark.

"But what the establishment kind of wanted in two thousand sixteen was Jeb Bush versus Hillary Clinton. And if you really go through it it's like tell me the major policy difference between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton you could maybe say like they could have a passionate argument about whether the top marginal tax rate should be like thirty thirty five percent. That's basically where you are. And they'll act like that's a huge difference but there's really not too much rhetoric and literally they call each other Siblings Jeb Bush. He gave some sort of a medal of freedom to Hillary Clinton at some event in New York City said that he considered her his sister. I mean so for for free thinkers who arrive at this conclusion about the Kabuki theater of modern American politics that there's so much sand and fury over such a little band of actual policy differences. Where'd you go to sort of seek fellowship and to learn new information And so you know when I think about the trajectory of my own life and like I said I've always had grass roots and and and dissident roots I don't know if you know this And I've mentioned it before a couple of times but I voted for Harry Brown in nineteen ninety six because I could not stand the idea of casting vote for the swampy est swamp Republican creatures Bob Dole and his running mate Jack Kemp at the time and so know. I had my dalliance with libertarianism. And I you know when I was in high school of course read every Ayn Rand Paul and I still some some. You Know Libertarian. Leanings and principles on uncertain public policy issues but when it comes to the you know the main issues of of America I I mean to me. There's just no question that we can't even talk about anything else until we get this under control and so When you think of the The minimal differences between the top establishment of the Democrat Party and the Republican Party and that was the theme of the last book. I wrote Open Borders Inc. It is it is rather alarming because so many of us on the right voted for Donald Trump who did not represent Sort of many many of the core mainstream nor me conservative values that I've embraced over over the years But held out the. You know the only hope there was out there that would elevate you know this mission of Enforcing our borders and supporting interior enforcement and doing something to stop mass migration to protect American students and workers and families and yet you know not only does he have to come. Come battle the usual forces on the left but Many of these people are embedded in his administration. The high special power. Yeah okay so there's a lot that That I think is really interesting that I wanna ask you about their. By the way it warms my heart that you voted for Harry Brown. I didn't know that till today when I was reading that That interview that you were and maybe there is. Maybe that is part of the reason why you now find yourself at odds with conservative inc because you kind of always did have some kind of contempt for the establishment of the the Republican Party. Even when you are as you mentioned kind of part of conservative AMC but let me ask you this. Do you think like. Do you think you changed since the days where you were more just kind of in line with the conservative Movement for for lack of better term whatever. It was at the time Did they change? Was it both like what do you think happened? I think that's a really good question. I think on some core issues I have never changed and Since I started out my newspaper career in Los Angeles my concerns about mass migration the effects of illegal immigration at least at the time in La Were so visceral and so palpable and That was not something that was talked about in the national media and it was in large part. Because you aren't allowed to talk about it and the National Council of Larosa in groups like that were incredibly infected effective in Weaponising the whole Hatemonger type thing and Obviously I think I had some sort of layer of immunity because of you know my skin color and my own ethnic heritage it certainly never fully immunized against all of the slings arrows and the Ad Hominem attacks that have followed me and now of course this next generation You know in my case for the last twenty five years it didn't deter me So when I moved up to Seattle It was a different set of concerns and so a same underlying principles that I've always believed in with America first but just Different mammoth manifestation of the problem. So I I made a lot of friends with a warrant patrol and ice agents some along the northern border that opened my eyes and then when I wrote invasion obviously September eleventh was such a wake up call and I know it's Cliche to call it Pearl Harbor and of course Pearl Harbor. History has hall separate Unresolved questions there as well But at least you know. There was this sort of awakening of a basic sense of of At least what appeared at the time toward patriotic. Bipartisan agreement that immigration should be treated as national security issue. And then over time again. It's not so much that like I switched or something. It's just that my views had evolved on on other aspects of What was wrong with our immigration system? Guys let's take a quick break and.

I mean there's no exaggeration you knew everybody's business so in that regard like sometimes a little bit. Tricky you know in terms of the pool is very small. I think at thirty five people in my graduating class so it was a very very small. It was like slim pickings but like my best friend from Iowa. Still my best friend. We grew up across the street from each other. You know I still have a lot of friends that are back there that are farmers you know and it was very. I think one of the things that I loved that my takeaway is why I'm still really proud. I when I have so much Iowa. Pride is that people. They're really kind and they really put community and their neighbor. I and that was just something that you know. I saw my. My parents were beautiful. Wonderful examples of that you know taking in children that were less fortunate than us That informed my my life very very much and my brothers as well taught us a lot of gratitude growing up and You know that that was something that you know. I felt like all of my neighbors were about was just helping and really giving back to the community because we didn't have really anybody else And it also at the same time you know when I watched the news. Which was I did every single night with my dad I saw a world beyond you know this small town and from a very young age I felt like I wanted to go out and explore. The world didn't do that so I always had that sort of. I think that desire to sort of spread my wings. I never felt like this was this. Was it for me that this was like I was going to stay? Maybe an Iowa I really wanted to to travel from young age and And then in and spread my wings so to speak. So that's so cool. It's interesting because going to a small town for a time in my childhood I think is part of what gave me the travel bug. Yeah and reverse 'cause I was born and raised in La and we started my parents. You know early on in my dad's career like so cute when they tell you those stories in my dad's like yeah you know we were like kind of broke in your mom and I would drive you up the coast. We'd stay in these little seaside motels in central California and like getting up to northern California and they fell in love with this little town called Cambridge. Yeah and we wound up moving up there for two and a half years. I think it's a five thousand person or was at the time. Five thousand person. Tam surrounded by like cattle ranches and farms and it was so idyllic in so beautiful and I had that kind of childhood experience. The talk about where you just leave your house and you go play all day and your parents aren't worried about where you are. Yeah and there was something about the incredible balance of those two lives. Yeah for me that made me. WanNa see everything Badjao. Wow whose knee. Yeah because you experienced at a young age kind of the best of both worlds and you're like holy cow if I'm getting this like what else is out there. Yeah it's so true I I remember we. My folks took us to Chicago for a cubs game. One Year Kogas the cubs and it was my first time ever seen city and I saw skyscrapers. You know as my folks call them and I just saw like the downtown and I remember thinking to myself I was like I'm going to go to college here. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa go to college and I and I did but it was like one of those things like this is a city like this is a city. This is what this is what this is and that was that feeling like that's it. I'M GONNA I'm getting. I've got like make this happen. You know come hell or high water and then of course once. I experienced the city that I was like well New York City like I want to move to New York City kind of explore that and yeah but it is interesting like you know what it is that that allows you that freedom or that that confidence. I had confidence at a very young age and I think do you think from your parents. Oh Two hundred percent for my parents. It's one hundred percent for my parents. They always said to us. You know you can do whatever you want to do. You can set your heart to just you have a good head on your shoulders. I remember I remember. I was in my senior year. I was studying journalism in College in Chicago and I put myself through school and I had this overwhelming feeling. One night that I needed to move to New York and I coincidentally you know had just gone through breakout. My friend was moving to law school in New York and he had a spare room and I was like. Wow this is really it like I could I could just maybe this is it. She moved to New York to New York. And I call it. My folks and I was like mom. Dad I've dropped out of school and moving to New York and I'm just like bracing myself waiting for it and my mom said she's like Michelle. We've always told you to follow your heart. Have a good head on your shoulders when you leaving will drive out there and we'll get we'll move out there. I was like. Oh my gosh and that'll always stick with me and it's something that you know I I'm so incredibly grateful for because it really really did. She still says those things says things to me you know encouraging words but I saw her live her life like that. I saw the way that she impacted other children that came into our home. That had been traumatized and she would sit them down and give him pep talks in. Nurture them with love and you. She's still in contact with those children and or they're adults. Now you know but I because of that experience in to enable to bear witness to it I it sounds so cheesy when I say it but I couldn't meet it anymore. Do not ever underestimate the power of believing in a child giving them that love and just that faith and just saying you can do that. You really can do whatever you want to do. And and so I just I really owe them so much because they really lived that truth and then they extended that to us. And I've always felt that confidence and I've always felt you know bolstered by them in their in their faith in me so yeah and then I was thinking like how am I going to make sure that guy instill the same thing in my own children yet. It's pretty it's it's It's a lot to get rid of your own things in your own anxieties right and then to to then like go. And then when I was seventeen I went to Japan tomato and it was my first time leaving the country and no parents or nothing. My Mom and Dad said you can do this. I don't be afraid you're you know and I remember I came back and I didn't make any money no money whatsoever and I was devastated and then the next year rolled around and they asked me to come back and try again and I was like. I don't think it didn't make any money. My Mom's like Ugo give it another shot. You don't give up after the first time. Go and do it again and I made money. I made tuition to pay for my college. My First Year of college and you know could have been so easy for a parent to say. You know what didn't work out. Try another avenue and she was just like no. You had a good time. Just go give it another shot. You know more than you did before and go and do it and I think I did you know that so anyway like 'cause you know you talk about what you got to watch with your parents having your family and also being a foster family. What was that experience? Like as a kid having other kids in and out of the home and yet it was It was emotional at times. Obviously you know our our our folks had said to us. They sat down at a very young age. And said you know and as I said my mom and a daycare out of our home so she was just a very very much natural nurturer. We still she still as we call her. The baby whisper but they said you know we're going to take in children that are less fortunate than us and we're we're going to be a family and we said Okay and I think our first foster our son Ricky. He came to us at two and a half months old. He stayed with us for two and a half years and He ultimately went back to his parents and and that was really traumatic for us and that was like are. I go and we were like. Wow he was really a part of our family and we were able to raise him and I think like one of the things with foster care the state of it is is really unfortunate is that the system is really set up for parents and the children are the ultimate victims. And sadly you know we can we can reveal rehabilitate and and try to help parents as much as we can but it's it becomes tricky because in lot of states when the child goes back to the parents and let's say they Relapse or the trauma happens again. The child doesn't naturally come back to your house and go to the same school and all of that they for purposes of them not getting to attach the foster family will then be sent to another foster family. So that's why you always hear of children going to multiple schools multiple foster homes in sadly you know they become a part of the system and so we saw that happen to my foster brother the very first one and sadly he became his children also then as he got older became a part of the system which is all too common. Really you know and then we had like brothers and sisters that will come and stay with us and there were. I remember. There were two that stayed with his again for another two years and we tried to adopt them and my mom and dad were forty five at the time. We all went to court to try to because the parental rights were taken away and we said we would really liked to have them be part of our family forever and they said you're too old to my mom and dad forty five to old so they fortunately were adopted out to an amazing family. And we're still in contact with them today. Which is Great? We have great relationships So that was a really happy ending. But.

"Slightly and with always is my. It's my at times bragging host but very very rarely I'll break for you. You look really good. You've got a beard and your your hair's all Akimbo. Can here be Akimbo. I've got the I don't Care Luke. Yeah the holidays you have a devil let myself go but at work. You're interpreting as a good thing. I don't care what I look like. But it's like I don't care what I look like. Maybe because I just saw a couple of pictures of hunks on Instagram I was what you know. How every year let me clarify? Let me explain Ryan Reynolds posted a thing. Every year they do like a joke with Hugh Hugh Jackman and Jake gyllenhaal arguably three of the Honky is hung around. Who is the third one? Who's the second one Jack? Huge huge huge Ackman Mall Hawks and they have a thing about Christmas sweater. I'd be people probably know what I'm talking about. I don't really know the INS and outs of it. But I know they post these jokey photos so just looking at photos of those guys and they have that kind of looked like disheveled or they've had so you're saying I fit right in with one saying maybe I know you're saying that maybe thank you. Thank you Why are we talking about hung's we were supposed to be talking about the White House? Oh yeah why are we. Bomb was sort of a honk. Well we've the sort of well. I don't think a traditional hunk. No but if he wasn't I president and so powerful he wouldn't be considered a hung. I bet if you took a poll of women human because you can't separate you can't people can't imagine not knowing him as president now at this point is it sexist to only take hunk poll with women. I think hunks hunks are men right. Yeah female hungry but men can be. Look I'm talking about hung's on we. You acknowledge that gay men would be part of that poll and straight. Yeah that's true. Well remember we were talking to somebody the other day who couldn't acknowledge We were talking about Ryan gosling talking to a straight man about writing and I said you know and they didn't know who it was and I said you know he's really handsome actor and he goes I don't I can tell I can say well. Back Obama all right speaking of still speaking of So why are we talking about the White House talking because our guest today is a comedian. Who I would say rose to? National prominence founded ascended to national prominence when she emceed the White House correspondents dinner a few years ago. That is a humid- headlines. Doing so she did more more so than any every year. The comedian makes some sort of headline meaning they. I think this was a bigger story than I can remember to from any other other. Yeah there was another one but this is years ago. I knew controversial. She said things that people were up in arms about and was talked about about for many weeks after it wasn't just like the next day's new which always happens. This was like this was stuck around for a while. And then you guys get into it. You guys talk about. That's right so I guess as Michelle. Shell will help you know getting there a very funny comedian. Michelle Wolf though. She's you know we could have also talked about gingers that we know Tom Because Michelle's also Known for being a ginger she is but I think to reduce her to that. I know I wouldn't is somewhat unflattering because she is an extremely funny Canadian. Yes I know I for the most part I would say. She is operated behind the scenes. Wouldn't you say yes. She writes a lot of rights for huge. Like she wrote for Chris. Rock Rock and She opened Louis. CK for a long time. That's how I was first introduced. Wrote for daily show to daily show Seth Meyers so she. She writes Zan has written for all the grades. You saw her at Louis. CK Show at Madison Square Garden. Show me yes. That's right saw her. Oh that's right and I remember number being very impressed because often at comedy shows the or music shows or any show the opening act is something you can kind of take. Yeah but I remember thinking. Oh this this person all I want to hear more about the same thing and meeting her. I was struck by how different her presence in the room. And you'll hear it in the interview. She's east her voice is different and I think she talks about this. She does the last name that I have a hard time pronouncing Wolf Wolf. Yeah but we'll get and you hadn't met her so this is your first. She was I have we talked about this. She was exactly on time and we were. We were recording. Who Cares doesn't matter? So she has a new specialized schlatter second special It's out enough flex right now. It's called joker go and I highly recommend it. It's extremely for a really really really fun. So good and it's like hit after. Hit It yeah. It's the first thing. It's the first since that watching her live. It's the first thing that super specialized alight seen or two and since correspondents dinner and I was who cares no matter. Let's get to the show. Let's take someone who does make sure I'm okay. That's a good idea. So without further ADO ADO ADECCO DOA Towa you over over that further. Avoi- this is my conversation with Michelle Wolf Sweetheart Dan. This episode of Life is short is brought brought to you by the simpsons on Disney plus. The Simpsons is one of the longest running and most award winning series in history and you can stream the first thirty seasons of the simpsons and and so much more right now when you subscribe to Disney plus in the US blooming. ooh You stood up in a room full of people powerful people and make jokes at their expense and funny scathing jokes to a room full of like for the most part unreceptive powerful people. You seem like a really normal nice personnel. What did that feel like? What was that like to do that? I mean it was one of the I don't even say cool but it was like one of the it was just like an such an interesting moment because I felt the whole night. I was like I knew what I was doing. And I knew I was like I was like they have no idea what's coming And 'cause even the the woman Margaret who yeah she The we you did a sound check and she was like. Oh what are you wearing tonight. What your gown look like? I'm wearing a suit and she goes. I'm wearing pants to like my little. Stick it to the man and I was like Nick. You have no idea what's about to happen even qualifies as sitting into the man. I I guess we really get that old Victorian man of them but it was really like I Standing there and like I. I knew exactly it was going to happen and I was so excited to do it. And I've never been calmer in my entire life yes sir mm-hmm and like and you know my friend Mark normies another Combo. He's I mean He. He texted me somehow. Gave me the best advice I've ever ever gotten Right before something but he texted me. He goes remember if they're cringing. You're doing wow did you must have felt like you were killing. They were like I've never normally you know as comic audiences they start to like when they get quiet. You start to get a little panic. And as soon as they got quiet I was like sit in What great advice? Whatever what what a great it was perfect one time mark? Norman really comes through the courage that it take to stand up in front of people like that and it was clear that they were not at all open and during the dinner thing like made me so like. Oh Oh this. Is the exact right thing to do. Is The guy who owns CNN. Jeff Zucker that's his name but he stood up and saw Kellyanne conway from across the room and he goes Kellyanne and she comes over and there's just like warm embrace and I was like. Oh I'm like everything anything I'm about to say is one hundred percent. They deserve all of it. Because this is a guy. CNN is like on and on about how bad they are like and then as as soon as he c- Kellyanne. I was like you guys are making so much money together. And you're having a great time but the same corrupt multi while we league like everyone in America is just like being like read this stuff from them Yeah the joke about. CNN was credited you broke it but also again like to go. After and even-handed I would say like you go after Rachel maddow and MSNBC SMBC But like you said all all in the same room together all embracing each other in our feeding people Sometimes misinformation or I. I think there's not really a network right now. That does a good job of providing news hug straight boring. I don't mean boring as the content of the news is boring but like like this when we were growing up. That's what I'm Peter Jennings and Dan Rather in the and it was all kind of delivered in this authoritative but yeah kind of boring during when the opposite of my voice. Well Yeah you make your voice but I actually. I'm now struck meeting you. By how non Abrasive your voice is and I know. That's the thing that you are known for this thing that people recognize about you. And you've you yourself comment on it. But at what point did you begin to play. Okay with your voice In terms of performance it's not intentional on stage. I think I don't know if I'm trying to be louder or like just how it is it. Just that's how it is on state excited to in real life like if some back I'll get like really I I don't know but like yeah if I'm just a normal conversation it isn't that you have a show right now. on Netflix Go joke show It is so oh it's so I found myself really Enjoying the perspective that you had about female topics you talk about getting your period Korea and giving birth and you do it just as a male audience member in a very accessible way in a way that And I wrote down some examples of what what I'm talking about because I'm not really articulate myself proud when you talk about a period for example you said a period should be called bloody tissue falling out of whole and I love that idea that like we have these cutesy terms for it like that time of the month but the idea that it was there. There's something very accessible about The we talk about these things And very truthful logic based do you ever felt like nervous about going too far with with like the White House. Correspondents dinner where you ever worried that L.. Should I'm I'm dismayed. Cross a line there. Couple jokes at the For the correspondent because I also practiced it at the comedy cellar for like a month to whenever it was I started the beginning of that month and I was like all right. You have a months to kind of work this out and I would do it at least once a night there and I At points it was like twenty or thirty minutes.

"Lori. the essence of it is basically. Laurie tells the operator that she went back and saw her friend and she says her head was crushed. She gives them michelle's name. Tells them where they can find the house and the dispatcher asks her if she can go back and meet the officers. The lord says she's too scared so she waits at the taco bell for an an officer to come pick her up and drive her back to the scene no when they get back. There's something interesting now. I'm not a hundred percent sure what it means. Laurie says when they drive up now the porch light is on. No one makes a big deal of this but michelle's daughter autre kara has always wondered did that mean that her mom's killer could have still been in the house when laurie came up the first time we we don't have the answer to that but it's something that will always linger in caras mind when detectives finally get to the scene and take inventory of what's there it's over whelming the crime scene spread over three separate rooms michelle had been running from her attacker skin and hair hair and bones were found in three different rooms the bathroom the dining room and finally the living room where lori said she saw michelle's lifeless for spotty and when lori said to the nine one one operator that her face was gone or the had been crushed what she didn't know was that michelle had been shot with a shotgun shotgun multiple places but the final blow was to her face just to the left of her mouth and that was the shot that killed her when investigators look for physical evidence. They don't have a ton. There seemed to be no forced entry but that's not too surprising since lori said michelle probably would have kept the door unlocked to let her her come home leader but there was something interesting. The phone line seem to have been ripped from the wall and most telling in michelle's hand and was a handful of hair now. Wall police are trying to catalog everything at the scene. Things are happening in parallel lori. Lori and tom are taken to the police station and both their hands are tested for gunshot residue which both comeback negative. Laurie tells police for story of finding michelle l. leaving out the fact that earlier in the night they were looking for drugs but who would wanna tell police that additionally while this is going on police are learning about michelle's tumultuous relationship ship with charles and so the detectives send someone to the house that he's staying at around five thirty in the morning basically just to keep an eye on him while they worked the scene see if he does anything fishy make sure he stays in one place so we can talk to him. When we're ready. Now police are watching him but they aren't ready to go in with a warrant until nine o'clock in the morning and from the time they're watching till they go in at nine. He was inside when police walk in they described charles as being on the couch rocking back and forth just saying oh no when police approach him. He just says i didn't do it. He didn't try to run or fight back but he refused to talk two police when they took him into custody. The house he was staying in is treated like another crime scene they search high and low looking for any sign that he he could have been around michelle when she was murdered and here's what they find they find two shotguns even though it's illegal for him to have these weapons because of the court orders against him at the time and remember it was a shot gun used to kill michelle. They find shotgun shells in a trash can outside the garage. They find a couple of specks of blood one on his white tennis shoe that had no laces one on his sweatshirt and one on his bedding finally they did another g._s. Are gunshot residue test on charles and multiple swabs taken from his left palm left back right poem all came back with significant amounts amounts of antimony and barium and lead showing positive results. He handled a gun recently now. This seems like an open and shut case. A woman was murdered with a shotgun. The man who has consistently had police reports filed for beating the living in crap out of her has the same kind of gun in his house with shells in his trashcan and blood on his stuff and witnesses who allegedly heard this man threatening to blow her head off which is exactly what happened to her. It didn't take long for police to build a case against charles allen but everything i listed above mostly asli was circumstantial. Some of the shows in the garbage seemed to match the scene but it's not one hundred percent exact science and the problem was they didn't didn't have the gun. Even though he had two shotguns in his house. The one that was used to kill michelle wasn't found but police thought they knew why he hit actually bought a brand new weapon from a man just two days before the murder and this man testified at trial that he did sell it to charles alan so this was another shotgun that they were never table to locate but they can prove he bought it but again all circumstantial so okay. Let's look at the blood and take for instance. The blood on the shoot was just a small speck on a white shoe. The spec was too small an amount to test in the nineties so they couldn't say for sure if it was even michelle's the defense pointed out that there were no shoelaces and they say like who would even wear shoes without laces in such a cold february day but the prosecution when they got up was like we're we're looking at the same thing. That's not our question. We're seeing this and saying the reason there are no shoelaces is because leases are the only part of the show he couldn't clean blood off of. He probably got rid of those just like he would have gotten rid of the gun if he did so their argument at least for me. The prosecution's russia cousens arguments seems legitimate but again circumstantial because you do not have those as you do not have the gun so the defense keeps attacking the prosecution's nations circumstantial evidence and this time they go after the spec of blood on the sweatshirt which again was too small to test so they say listen you gotta just completely throw that out but the prosecution succesion thought they had something solid they did have the spot of blood on charles bedding and that spot was big enough to be testable and when they tested it it was michelle's blood now. The defense says they have an excuse for this to they say well. I mean that's not not surprising. They dated on and off. Maybe she had a nose bleed before you can't tell when the blood got there. This is totally explainable and at one point we in the trial. The defense attorney says something that made my skin crawl. He said you know nosebleed aside or whatever he said. Listen take for example. There might be blood in michelle's own trailer but clearly that has nothing to do with this crime because no crime took part in that trailer so he continues if blood were to be found in that trailer we have to assume it's from previous times where charles beat up michelle so they were proposing that the jury view all of the evidence this way he's basically saying that we should did assume that blood could be all over charles and his stuff and where he stays because he beat on her so frequently that we should expect expect to see her blood everywhere by now and that shouldn't be taken into consideration when weighing whether or not he was responsible for killing her. Are you fired up up like me because there's more the defense also said well yeah. They fought all the time and to clarify here. Which of course the defense did not. We're not talking about like screaming. Matches or arguments were talking about police reports of michelle getting her nose broken bleeding profusely. He says yeah they fought all the time with the always he's got back together and things were fine. That is not fine. A victim might go back to an abuser but that does not make the abusers. I actions normal or fine or even mean that they won't escalate now. This isn't the only thing i have problems with that. The defense did during the trial when it was time for lorry to tell her story about finding her friend. The defense counsel goes on and on about lorries use of drugs. He goes into extensive detail about how she does drugs. Do you snort it. Do you inject it. How do you inject it. Will you show us. How are you inject it now. Let's talk about michelle. How did she do drugs. This did not have any relevance to the case or whether or not charles was innocent or guilty. The defense attorney wanted the jury to have a distaste for laurie and michelle. He was trying to attack the character of the victim to try to make her seem unsympathetic and he was trying to make them think lori was untrustworthy because he had something up his sleeve. The defense had a story for michelle's own brother her who said that lori told him she was there when michelle died and that she watched someone else kill her but that someone wasn't charles us now this scenes like a bombshell but michelle's brother wasn't stable michelle sister testified as much in court art and when i talked to care a michelle's daughter in present day she said this quote he suffers from various mental illnesses including a mild mental delay he he has had to have legal guardian most of his adult life. My mother and carl sister pam tried to have him declared incompetent to stand trial in the months prior but it it didn't work out going on my experiences with carl. He found a situation in which he felt important and made up information to remain in the spotlight. The last time i heard from karl he was homeless in memphis tennessee and i mean this explanation seems logical enough. How many cases have we crime. Junkies heard about where people insert themselves into the investigation or make up false stories completely and that is sometimes compounded. If a person is mentally ill however for the defense used the story from carl two point two one other piece of information in this case that can't be explained away as easily that clump of hair and michelle's hand it came back inconclusive to matching charles now they didn't do a full dna profile testing from what i understand because of the limitations in the nineties just like a visual comparison so i don't think this is the definitive proof we would necessarily have in present day of this testing was done and but it was enough of a question mark for the jury combined with carl's story and the way the defense bashed laurie michelle's character it. It didn't matter to them. That charles had abused michelle countless times before it didn't matter that there were hearsay witnesses who her charles threatened to kill michelle and the exact way that she died. It didn't matter that they found her blood on his betting. The jury found charles allen not guilty and i want to make a quick note inherent testing on the hair has never been done with new technology. If we want to theorize about other people you of course are free to do so but keira has asked that if you speculate and theorized please keep her father out of any theories he he had his son that night he's been cleared yet an alibi he fought for and won custody of both kids which is super rare and she says he's a loving and gentle man. Who's been a good father and other than exchanging the kids on weekends. He had no interaction with michelle and no motive to harm her so i ask keira what her theory of that night is. She said she's had twenty years to think about every possible theory and she keeps coming back to that phone cord that was ripped out of the wall. Now police always theorized that the killer did it so that whoever was inside couldn't call nine one one but charles prince weren't found on it keira wonders. If someone someone maybe charles was trying to call her mother that night and her mother wouldn't take a call and her mother was the one to rip it out so whoever was trying her could could not reach her and that would have been just the kind of thing to set someone off especially if they had a history of abuse. It's been over twenty you years. No one has ever been held responsible for the murder of caras mom but the injustices don't stop there. Charles was found innocent of michelle's murder in court but he was guilty of abusing her as seen in police report after police report the courts issued a restraining order for him mm to stay away from michelle but apparently those restraining orders only last in life and they don't follow you to your grave because when charles allen eventually died of cancer he bought the two cemetery plots next to michelle one for his grandson who died as a newborn born and one for him so that he could lie next to the woman. He abused for an attorney now. Every time care wants to go visit her mother. She also is forced to visit and be reminded of the man who caused her mother so much pain. Keira has started a gofundme me that we've contributed tributed to help her move her mother so she may finally rest in peace and chara's family can finally go visit and remember their mama who she was outside of charles allen. If you want to donate to help her there will be a link on this episodes blog post. You just have to go to crime junkie podcast dot com and then in click the episodes link but i want you to know that carrigan share the story for the money. She didn't even ask me to put the go. Fund me up there. She wanted other people to hear her. Mom's story to better understand the cycle of abuse more. We talk about it. The more we recognize the signs and get out and help all people get out before it's too late. According to the national coalition against domestic violence right now nearly twenty people per minute are physically abused. He was by an intimate partner in the united states and this doesn't just apply to women. It's one in four women but also one in nine men experienced severe abuse on a typical the day there are more than twenty thousand phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines the presence of a gun in a domestic violence situation increases the rise of homicide by a five hundred percent as seen michelle's case abusers will not change no matter how good the good is or what promises they make they will not change if you or someone you love is in a domestic violence situation and please remember it doesn't always start with the violence it can be slow and methodical and manipulative verbal abuse but it will escalate so if you or someone you love is in any kind of domestic violence what situation please reach out for assistance. You can visit n c a d._v._d. Dot org slash resources. We'll also have this on our website but they have a wonderful list of resources for help in any specific situation.

"Crime father of her two kids sometime before and he was actually awarded custody of the children. You see michelle had hit a rough patch in life. She started running with the wrong. People began drinking a little more dabbled in drugs. She wasn't in a place to have her kids full-time but she still all saw them regularly. She had them every other weekend and care a new even as a young child. Her mother loved her. Whatever was going on whatever happened or would happen up and her mother cared about her on the evening of february twenty seventh nineteen ninety eight michelle was supposed to have her kids that night but schedules got jumbled the way they tend to do when you're juggling growing kids with little lives of their own cara had gotten invited to a friend's sleepover birthday party that she really really wanted to go to you so of course her. Mom wasn't going to keep her back. So new plan kyle would stay with his dad on friday night. Care would go to the sleepover and in the morning michelle would pick up kyle bill and then swing by and grab cara and they would spend the rest of the weekend together playing games having pizza michelle even related this plan to care over the phone on on friday night. You have fun at the party. I'll see you tomorrow. I love you. The next day care patiently waited for her mom to come pick her up but she never showed instead care was surprised to see her aunt and it was this aunt who had to be the one to tell her why her mom wasn't there and why she you wouldn't be coming. She had been murdered. Keira has had twenty years to replay that night over and over feeling. I'm sure sure every emotion but in the end. She says she thinks it was a blessing that her and her brother weren't there that night because if they were she's not sure she'd be here to tell the story story today and here's what she and we know about her mom's last night knowing that she wouldn't have her kids that night. Michelle decided to to go out with her best friend. Lori lori had a small group of friends that were hanging around town mostly at a local bar. They drank a little. They drove around nothing really out of the ordinary or memorable memorable at some point in the night. Michelle's x. charles met up with him just briefly. Maybe like ten minutes or so. He brought michelle some cigarettes or something now. Now i need to talk briefly about michelle's axe or maybe not ex- they were on and off all the time probably off at that moment but they were very hot and cold hold and they had a very volatile relationship and i'm not exaggerating on september fourth of nineteen ninety seven. This is about two years before one of there. Fights got so bad that michelle had to file a restraining order and here's exactly what the restraining order reads quote he had threatened me by telling me he was going to kill me. He was calling me names. He was out of his mind. I don't want him around me or around my house. He is a a threat to me end quote now. This wasn't the first time they had blowout fights before and this wouldn't be the last all out brawls where people overheard charles threatening opening to shoot michelle or blower head off times where people witnessed charles chasing her grabbing her by her hair and dragging her off just three months before the murder. Someone said they saw charles. Charles kick michelle in the head. The restraining order was an important step for michelle but she couldn't stay away. Charles would cross the lines of that order many times and michelle ellwood to the national domestic violence statistics show as it takes on average seven times of trying to walk away before someone can leave their abuser for good. I don't know how many times michelle tried to break it off but we do know that she filed a report on september fourth and we know another police report was made on new year's zeev showing that charles violated that order police were called michelle's trailer and they'd been there before they were familiar with both michelle and charles when they arrived michelle came running out and she was agitated and as she comes running out someone had taken off through the back door. Now police tried to chase this man down but as they're looking for him all of a sudden they hear noises back inside the trailer and it sounded like the place was coming apart. This man was back inside when they came back in. There was blood all over michelle. She was bleeding from her face. Her nose was completely smashed and she'd been severely bitten on her shoulder. Her attacker was able to write off on a four wheeler but police knew her attacker. It was charles allen and they knew where to find him. When police wrote up the report reported the incident. This is what it said. Quote committed fourth degree assault by intentionally hitting and biting michelle schroeder causing physical injury victims nose was broken and her. I was badly bruised. She had a large bite mark on her arm and quote after charles. Allen beat up michelle l. again and violated the restraining order again. He didn't spend the next couple of months in jail if he would have. I might be telling a different story now but he was out free able to bring cigarettes to michelle on february twenty seventh so laurie says charles came and went that night no big scene seen things were fine michelle and lori. They're friend. Tom continued to drive around. 'til around midnight when michelle says that she's ready to go home and so that's where they head now this time michelle isn't talking about her trailer. Her trailer didn't have heat so it was a cold february night. Both lori and michelle were actually staying at one of their friends in house so around midnight laureate tom drop-off michelle at their friend's house. Laurie actually goes inside with michelle to use the bathroom and start a fire for michelle but <hes> she's still planning on going back out. When laurie leaves she sees michelle letting the dog back into the house. She didn't say anything to her didn't think too because it all seems so normal. She had no idea that when she came back just a few hours later that the house she left would be a gruesome crime scene in.
