"700 wlw Mike Allen on Saturday midday cloud in Looks like it's gonna be nasty Saturday. Before I start. I want to thank my son, Mike Allen Jr for stepping in my absence. During my guess you could call it convalescence just to give you a common update on my situation. Long story Short, I contracted something called disc itis, and it's a situation where bacteria has formed. At the base of my spine. Caused by a an abscessed tooth that I had a couple of months ago that resulted in a root canal. My doctor told me that The bacteria traveled down from my mouth into the base of my spine, and they're trying to kill it with with antibiotics, and I got some good news this week that Doc says it looks like it's working. The antibiotics are killing the bacteria, but it's gonna be a while. I'm hobbling around still with Walker sitting here comfortably, though, in the big chair with a pillow and a heating pad, so I'm in good shape. But anyway, thanks to my son, my junior for filling in for me and I'm happy to be back. And the news this week. That's one thing about that kind of having your wings clipped. You can stay up on things which I do anyway. But even more so. The good news and you just heard it on the news on the top of the hour. Fizer finally getting clearance on the on the cure. If you will the vaccine for Corona virus and I'll tell you something. President Trump won't get any credit for it. But He should What is and you know what this could only happen in America. We are the only country that could do that come up with a vaccine as quickly as we did. It's American ingenuity. It shows the world although some don't want to admit it that we are Without question the greatest country on the planet. You know, Red China gives it to us gives it to the world, the United States of America. Takes care of it and solves it. Anyway, Those are my thoughts on that, but also in the news this week locally Once again former Cincinnati City Council member tonight. Denard is in the news. You know if you haven't heard you won't believe why. Again to my Denard, one of the one third of the legislative body of the city of Cincinnati that being city clown soul that either was under federal indictment or is under federal indictment. And of course, she admitted under oath. Under oath. Because please in federal court. Most of them are under oath, and I presume she was under oath. Admitted under oath to selling her vote for money. She pled guilty in federal court receiving 15 grand From Tom Gabel and Tom's, An attorney for the Hamilton County commissioners has been for a long time for receiving 15,000 from Tom Gableman in return for favorable, favorable action in return for this cash and let me explain at this point, if you don't already know Tom Gableman, if anyone Is a hero. In this thing. It's him. He approached him initially, and he said, Ah, and he did the right thing and notified the feds and the feds used him as a confidential source. And that was completely appropriate. And Tom Gableman is to be commended for that. But the bottom line is the feds, As is usually the case. They had her now a taped conversations, text messages, you know, even more than that, And I've said it before, and I know this from practice. Once the feds get you in their crosshairs, man, you got a tough way to go. Not impossible, but a tough way to go to get yourself out of it. What a great She got some sense and she pled guilty. She got 18 months in prison, which for you know what she was charged with and convicted up. That's not a bad sentence. It's really not And she doesn't have to report until March of 2021. That's not all that unusual in federal court, but that's a long time. So you know, she played. She gets 18 months She reports and March case closed, right? Wrong. How wrong you are, If you think that In a Facebook post on Wednesday. To Maya Denard now says that she is the victim and she was treated unfairly. She says she was treated worse than two Milken Council members. You also were arrested and charged and indicted. Here's what she says on her Facebook post, and it's just unbelievable why she's even on Facebook is beyond me. But anyway, here's what she says. Quote While everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence, it wasn't given to me. I've been treated differently from the very beginning. Aside from deters a county prosecutor sticking his nose into a federal case, the difference in treatment on the local state and federal levels has been egregious. Months and weeks after being arrested on federal charges. Larry Household PG Sitting founded Jeff Pastor are still gainfully employed and able to make a living. I wasn't offered that privilege, closed quote. What she's complaining about. With respect, Joe Deters is that apparently when this came out, and by the way, people were crying out for away Get her off a council because she didn't want to step down. But anyway, Joe stepped in, and there are some mechanisms to do that. And you know what he did was completely responsible. It was responsible for him to take the action that he did. And as I said, it's not something I don't think he thought up on a whim. People were crying out for that. Well, anyway, in her Facebook post, Incredibly, she actually attacks her own guilty plea. He attacks her own guilty plea for trying to shake down a developer for her vote on council again back to her post quote. On the face of the charges alone. There is a big difference. There wasn't a charge on my end to garner power or create a steadily steady illegal stream of income. Cincinnati City Council members and state officials, who called for my resignation have been radio silent or even openly supportive. My former Okay? And here's the Here's the money shot of my former male colleagues. So she placed the female victim card first. He goes on to say, quote. While everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence. It wasn't given to me. As I said before, she said, this I've been treated differently from the very beginning. No, she wasn't Well, she finally ends her Facebook post by saying this and folks, this is really incredible again pled guilty to shaking down a developer and return for her vote. Sentenced to 18 months in federal prison. This is what she ends her Facebook posts on Wednesday, saying, regardless of where I am or what I'm doing, I will always speak out about injustice. It's amazing what a Penis lack of melon in Conformity or perceived header sexuality will do for you. There's a lot of work to be done and I will never stop advocating and elevating people in the margins. Hash Tag bend, but don't break Can you believe the brazenness of that? You're under while you're not under federal indictment anymore. He had he entered a guilty plea. You know you're waiting to go to federal prison for 18 months and you get on Facebook and you say that you know there's a lot of work to be done and I'll never stop advocating and elevating people in the margins. You gotta give her credit for Hutch. But I guess But on this one, she gets a three for She says she was treated differently because she's Woman. She's African American, and she's gay. Which, frankly,.
The IPO Parade
"Recently in mid september. There was a big week of software. Debuts when snowflake unity jay frog went public raising a combined eight billion dollars before that the only weeks that saw greater issuance was in may of twenty nine thousand nine when uber went public and then september twenty fourteen when alibaba went public. Now woods different this time around. Is that the billions of dollars in new. Stock is coming weeks before the end of the year when most institutional investors lock in their performance for incentive fee purposes. That's when it becomes imperative for them to beat their benchmark and their benchmark is say the nasdaq. They're looking at gains of about forty percent. Beat that could drive. Demand as ipo's can of course be a source of alpha with the day one pop but it could also cause investors who are already ahead to sit. These deals out to avoid any last-minute risk-taking because that pop is all but guaranteed considering airbnb endured dash of both up their price ranges. it appears that they're receiving greater than expected demand at this stage in the game. Guys so leslie. I mean the funny part about some of these companies including everybody wanted to do at one point. A direct listing Is just i mean. Obviously they also need need and want to raise money but in this environment. It seems like you gotta you gotta raise the money. I think that's right. You have to raise the money in this environment. Especially if you're businesses potentially impacted by the next few months and who knows what's come with regard to to shutdown orders and the like and. I was thinking about this too yesterday. As i was kind of wrapping my head around this hit. I do wonder because with the direct listing. you don't necessarily get that same amount of interest from a listing at the end of the year that you might get with a traditional ipo. because it's the institutional investors that get allocation at the stock at what they hope would be a price that would be poised to pop on the first day of trading. So if you have a direct listing you don't really have that kind of incentive structure as you would with a traditional ipo. at the end of the year. i don't know if that actually change the calculus but it's certainly something that could be a tailwind further. Ipo in a traditional ipo process. Lizzy pinker great. Thank you knew. stay at home.

"In for my old man, Mike Allen senior Saturday morning. He's uh Taking care of himself. If you haven't heard, he's dealing with some back issues. Kind of. Ah, infection run wild, but he's gonna be okay. I'll probably be back in the next week or two. I'm not exactly sure, but I'm happy to be here. He was with me yesterday We were filling in for Scott Sloan. And before we get into Saturday morning, I wanna encourage everybody to check that show out on the I heart radio app. I think if you just search my gallon podcast Or probably the Scots alone podcast. You'll be able to find it. The show was it was really good. We had United States attorney David DeVillars on the corruption cases He's been Spearheading. We had Pete Bronson to talk about his new book on the Beverly Hills. Supper Club fire, which is shaping up to be fascinating as well as JT towns and talk about the anniversary of the JFK shooting, and why. So many Americans. I think it was 75% think that it was a conspiracy and not what the Warren report Put forth, but We got a good one today to we're gonna have a former Republican operative Former How to say, I guess City Hall mover and Shaker. Former campaign manager and current attorney of D B L. Patrick Greg in to break down the new developments in the mayor's race, as well as the various attempts to remove And replace Jeff Pastor mpg, Sittenfeld. Then coming up in the 10 30 hour. We're gonna have Adam bound Cincinnati Enquirer beat writer for the Xavier Musketeers to break down the last three games. For the Muskie's but onto the rant. The possibility Of the media's ultimate fantasy. Becoming reality is starting to fade, and I don't mean Donald Trump losing the election. If you think disgrace, CNN, Talking head and New Yorker columnist Jeffrey Toobin got excited over a mundane zoom call. Imagine what his reaction and Donald Trump being removed in handcuffs at gunpoint would have been You know, we'd have to deploy Seal Team six to the White House. It would end up just like Scarface. You know, trump with a cocaine mustache. That the Chevelle tuxedos screaming, Say hello to my little friend and just being shot in some, you know, epic Shakespearean death scene. You know, just again, listening to the scenario somewhere Jeffrey Toobin as his hands in his pockets, But we had legitimate political commentators such as Mr Toobin. Predicting civil unrest if Donald Trump won or lost the election if Donald Trump lost, they predicted that you know, trump voters would would form these. These are militias and flow into the streets and demanded that you know that he'd be declared the winner. You know, some of these fools actually began debating which side the military would choose. Um This is just, you know, absurd. And the problem is, is that people actually believe this crap and it's dangerous. But reality is reality, and it's starting to look like the transition into the Biden administration is beginning. And you know this is a chance for us. You know the deplorable and moral racist Trump supporters. To show the country who we are. You know, we're not babies. We aren't delusional. We respect democracy. We practice what we preach. The reality is whether by fraud or not, Joe Biden will probably be the next president. And Predict the first two years of his presidency will be an unmitigated disaster. The Senate's going to investigate his role in his son's dealings in Ukraine. John Durham's report will come out eventually. And as an aside you know, William Barr can just go kick rocks. You know, this election nonsense was so predictable. I mean, we saw this coming. I my old man, Willie. We all sort of predicted this almost to a T on these airwaves. We should have been prepared for this on a federal level when I realized the state's handled the elections, but we saw this coming. And, of course, any time a Republican advocates for any regulation of anything you know, liberal jumps off. Well, I thought you were anti regulation. Republicans are supposed to be no. Well, that's generally when it comes to business in the economy. The reality is, you know federal elections? There's an idea that maybe federal elections should be regulated by the federal government. But I predict by 2022 Biden will truly be a lame duck if he hasn't already. What's also reality is 70 million people have legitimate I don't know concerns as to whether or not this election was on the up and up. And frankly, that's going to be a topic of another show. I guess not this show, but Maybe another show because this is its own form of voter suppression. You know, liberals love to go nuts about imaginary voter suppression. You know they rant about Voter suppression nonstop, literally with no evidence of it. You know, they say voter ideas racist and my response is well, you're racist. If you think somebody so incompetent, they can't go Get an I D. But the media repeatedly saying one candidate has no chance. The media, you know, not only ignoring the hunter Biden story, but actually censoring it. I mean, you have The CEOs of Google and Facebook and Twitter openly admitting this So not only will the media not cover it. Not only will you know Google and Twitter actually publish it. You know, Joe Biden got elected without even a job interview. I mean to this day to this day, we have no idea what any of his policies were going to be. You know, he actually answered Questions which you can call him an answer saying, Well, you'll find out when I'm elected. I mean, imagine that in any other scenario. You know, Imagine John Kerry and in the Bush election or George, you know George W. Bush saying, Well, I'll let you know when I'm elected. I mean,.

"A particular aircraft type so. What happens after Z. if they go back to double a or come up with a different Sure we've actually reached the end of the off we're on the Yankee Huey in the Z Model Cobra civil 'cause we kind of have kept both of those in parallel in Houston Coburn the same squadron in Marine Corps squadrons. About the the new versions have about eighty percent commonality apart. So it works pretty well so. It was an airframe that I really missed flying. It was was. Very fortunate to have gotten to flow and fly it. There's a period where we were flying a lot of air shows EA EA a fly in the fly. Across the state and we've got to fly that aircraft on behalf of the Missouri Guard to to those flying's and it was it was really neat to see the audience's. Response, to hear US approach and act, we shut down the people that we spoke to people. We met the stories that we heard and just to see the emotion that aircraft back it was. Truly a period of my life I really value looking back on it of opportunity across the state you can do that especially from the from the Vietnam era. He made infamous in Vietnam Times bit It's. Quite, versatile versatile machine. When one of those classic aircraft that will always the the the joke in the Marine Corps was the when the when the black when the last Black Hawk pilots fly out to Davis Monthan drop off the last Blackhawk at at the mothball facility where they're retired the blackhawks, they'll fly home and Huey because he still going to be. So. We flew imply school were immaculate and when the air arm transitioning away from him, the Air Force, who also did their initial entering training in Fort? Rucker. was using who is they took our aircraft and put them suit through some type of modification. So while everyone in the armed transitioning back to to the Oh fifty eight or the TA sixty seven or the new. Faisal twenty-one concept the air force was taking hueys modifying them and still flying them so I have to give it air force credit there they They saw good thing they latched onto it and as far as I know they may still be flying today down there. That's right. You're has that you eat flight detachment believe it or not. I think still he's still got it so. Talk to me a little bit about I.

The 7 Remote Work Trends That Will Impact Your Business
"Welcome to another episode, of marketing, school I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today. We're GONNA. Talk about the seven remote work trends that will impact your business, so we're still in the thick of it five twenty eight. This is may twenty eighth twenty twenty, so there's there's been a lot of chatter about remote work, and we believe it's going to continue right like so eric and. And I? Believe with them opening up more more stuff were already seeing a trend of covid spreading more in resurging backup. Sadly so Moyo working is a huge trend yard seen companies like twitter. Saying you don't have to come back to work if you don't want to. Yeah, so I guess that's that's really the the first one right there. It's I think there's GonNa be a lot more. People can't twitter. People look at facebook's people saying like Oh. They're saying you don't need a comeback for the rest of the year. Whereas companies like Microsoft are kind of waiting and seeing what develops I think what's going to happen is some people are still going to have a semblance of an office because I was looking at a twitter poll the other day I I think actually heating, put it up. He jaw and couple of thousand people responded to it. Maybe it was somebody else, but it was basically saying. Saying look how many of you are would like to come back into office. How many would like to go purely remote? And how many of you want a hybrid? The vast majority of people picked that they wanted to go. Hybrid and I think hybrid is the motto of the future sure he can socially distance, and all that but I think coming to the office, maybe two or three days a week under the other days are remote i. think that's what's going to work and before turnover to uni all. The Israeli government or Israeli scientists came up with a smart model saying hey, why don't you try a four ten model meaning you come into the office four days a week virus six fourteen days to incubate so four days. You come into office the other ten days. You don't come back and then boom. You're back again like next next. Monday so I. I see that potentially being an option as well. That's. The other big trend that I see is people are moving towards different communication channels like. I know in our office. We used to have so many meetings. The amount of time people spend on meetings at one point was just so ridiculous. Start enforcing policies on how many people could be in meetings because we don't want people wasting time in meetings versus actually getting work done and when you look at this is what we found. Is that people using zoom more slack? Mormeck soft teams more, they're actually getting more efficient and people are learning how to get work done from their home. Same Time we've also found that some people aren't good at working remotely. Some people are amazing at it. Others aren't so with your business. You're going to have to figure out how to adapt and how to help people transition and teach them how to work remotely 'cause not everyone's used to. Yup and then this is number three. Number three cut into Neil's point. I would say. There is zoom fatigue or Google meet. Fatigue is very real right now so i. just mentioned like I think. The last time recorded this the week before maybe that week. I was camping out at twelve calls. They even know how it got to that point where Mike. Allen Rogers booked up, but at the very end of the day as just. It's straight up like depression and like I feel like it's Friday every time that happened so I. Actually see less zoom meetings happening so sometimes what I do now. Instead of doing zoom calls I say hey, let's just do a phone call, and then that way. You don't have to keep looking at the screen. The whole time goes. By the end of the day you're just you're the vegetable so I see I. See changes happening totally number four. Another big thing that you're going to have to start. Taking into account is hours. So what we're seeing is businesses normally would be open from eight to five or whatever the hours may be, we're seeing. People are starting to work more sporadic hours. They still may be getting the work done, but they may stay earlier. Finish later or start later and finish earlier and just be more efficient work less. Less hours in one day, but the next day they may end up working quite a bit more hours because they're also adapting to their family life with other people being in their homes, their kids or their kids having to do zoom school calls, so they had to be there for the kids and help them through that as well so I think one thing that your business has to learn how to adapt to. Is People not working eight hours consistent and working during random hours and time and as long as. As they get the work done, you shouldn't really complain much or have much base. You

"Some of the things that have happened this week with respect to corona virus the cares acting remember that that's the legislation that president trump signed a couple weeks ago that provided help mainly for small businesses under the pay roll protection plan well it ran out of money this week I think it was Thursday they ran out of money and there are still thousands perhaps hundreds of thousands of small businesses that want and need this money to keep their business is open so they're looking to Congress to add some additional funds to this payroll protection plan to help the small businesses so you think pretty routine right I mean the money is there although some they were going to pay for the stop the money's there the need is certainly there past the extension for another two hundred fifty billion dollars pretty routine wrong once again the ODS Nancy Pelosi rears her ugly head Republicans in the house want to keep it simple all they're doing is calling for a standalone bill to put an additional two hundred fifty billion into that fun well of course the Democrats argue that they have a better plan their proposal would cost roughly double what the Republicans proposal is and include an additional hundred billion dollars for hospitals a hundred fifty billion more for state and local governments as well as increases to food assistance benefits and policies plan also was signed onto by Chuck Schumer called for additional support for food stamps by fifteen percent so you know you think it would be something that they could easily do by now that's not the case although late last night there were some rumblings that they may be able to come up with this additional money for the payroll protection plan who by everyone's calculations at least so far seem to think that this is that it's been pretty successful in keeping small businesses open

"Hundred W. W. Mike Allen is Saturday midday on a nice five on Saturday morning is going to get hotter later on Sunday to but that's okay Hey I want to talk to you this morning about a war and that word is privilege you hear a lot these days mostly in the context of so called white privilege what white privilege isn't the only kind of privilege not not by far and you learn about the other types of privileges this morning and I will teach you now the whole idea of this privilege thing originated warehouse the American college campus what a shock and there's a person her name is narrow Willis she's a writer she's a world traveler and of course an academic and she has been called the voice of Jan why not to look that up generation Y. our millennials born between nineteen eighty and nineteen ninety four there currently between twenty five and thirty nine years old so I have miss Willis is allegedly the voice of Gen Y. N. N. here's what she says she says to have a privilege is to have an advantage that is completely out of your control there are many different types of privileges that people benefit from in many different weights everyone has some type of privilege going for him or her and then she goes on to write she says the harder part is accepting your privilege like it or not your status in the world will help you get something you may not deserve it will make your paths easier and in some cases your privilege may blind you into thinking the benefits that you gain from it are you actually deserve because somehow your better smarter and more deserving than other people wow I mean it's unbelievable and you know looking at the different kinds of privileges according to ms Willis there is such a thing called gender privilege and she talks about gender privilege and she says most gender privileges are given to males will of course these privileges are obvious such as being paid more women can't even win on that front and how many times we talked about this topic people you don't women are paid slightly less because of the choices they make in raising a family anyway she goes on to say in fact women who ask for more money our scene is demanding and less likely to be higher however men who ask for more money are seen as a service the shame of it all then she goes on to say females are almost always in what we call a quote double barring unquote this means that everything they do is wrong for example a woman who has a lot of sex is seen as a slot yet a woman who has little sacks is seen as a prude a woman who doesn't speak too much is shy or submissive however the woman who expresses herself is too bossy I guess women just can't win but as we all know guys they run the world but there's a thing called gender privilege so you got to watch out for that and of course we can't forget heterosexual privilege again according to miss Willis heterosexual privilege is actually more federal sexual suse gender privilege heterosexual hyphen suse hyphen gendered privilege but by knows what the hell that is let me know she says if you don't fall on the L. G. B. T. Q. like Apolo plus their L. G. B. T. click Q. plus spectrum you benefit from enormous amounts of privilege come on you'd never have to worry about bathroom you can or cannot use well that I'm I'm really glad that I have that privilege and you never have to worry about who you can marry if you're heterosexual and suse gendered you can adopt a child with little or no difficulty really talk to some people have tried to do that you also don't have to worry about being rejected by your friends family or religion based on the person you love you know what all that's fine but those things really I know she'd say differently but they really don't happen anymore so as you can see there are all types of privileges pretty much created out a whole plot by feminism liberal college professors and they're there so they can shift the blame from people's lesser faults I guess but the big kahuna the top banana and the granddaddy of all privileges it is of course white privilege and there are all kinds of definitions of white privilege in various dictionaries and what I found it defined white privilege as quote inherent advantages possessed by a white person on the basis of his race in a society characterized by racial inequality and injustice close quote you know that's us the United States of America were characterized by inequality and injustice in her mind at least or his mind whoever wrote that in the dictionary now personally I like the definition of white privilege that's in the urban dictionary you know I'm here but I'm with it and you know I'm not a Gen Y. but I like to look at the urban dictionary now the urban dictionary defines white privilege ads a term used as a blanket condemnation of any success a white person may have regardless of any advantages of minority member might receive such as free tuition easy loans or tax breaks well this definition further states that white privileges is just assumed whereas whenever a white person succeeds and finally in that definition in the urban dictionary white people succeed because of white privilege only every other successful person succeeds purely in spite of it so I like that DOT definition in the urban dictionary so as you can see thanks to the pointy headed intellectuals on the American college campus there is a virtual smorgasbord of privileges out their privileges if people can blame when they don't succeed but now friends I want to tell you about one more privilege I learned about this week and it's a real privilege that can actually be demonstrated by data and facts and this privilege friends most assuredly I can tell you did not come out of the how old the halls of academia I'm talking about liberal privilege that's right I said liberal privilege this week I don't know what night it was I was watching some commentator on TV and he mentioned that kind of in passing I never heard of the term before liberal privilege so naturally because I do my homework and I want to educate you I wanted to find out about it and I did a little bit of research now I wasn't able to find out where the term originated but I did find out some definitions of liberal **** privilege one of them as states that liberal privilege is the term we can use whenever we see liberals receive extra privilege simply because they're liberals it's easy to spot and happens almost everywhere you turn and wouldn't you know it wouldn't you know it the urban dictionary has a definition of liberal privilege they define it as the privilege of ignorance claimed by many but not all liberals you know for the most part liberally privilege exist because over the course of about the last fifty years or so these three major institutions in this country the media academia and the entertainment industry all have surrendered in are dominated by the left think about it the media of course they've been taken over and dominated by the left academia we don't even have to talk about it the entertainment industry cookie movie stars a Hollywood everywhere they're all dominated by the left and that's one of the reasons why you have liberal privilege you know they all surrendered to the left and we're not gonna get them back anytime soon want to tell you about a guy named Timothy door he's a conservative speaker he's also an editorial writer for town hall and he wrote a piece a few years back called signs of liberal privilege ways you can find out about liberal privilege and see if someone is exercising it and one of the indicators of liberal privilege according to Mister dark Dorothy is that you have the right to control what ever everyone else does whatever they have and what they say and how they think think about it that doesn't fit I think it does you know the idea of living your own life and you know here's a thought leaving others the hell alone to do the same thing never crosses your mind and that's a sign of liberal privilege now their side is assuming you have the right never to hear any opinion that contradicts your own and using intimidation and violence if necessary to protect your ideological bubble and if someone actually does or says something you don't like you're entitled to a hug or a puppy one of the big ones that that that he points out that I think is a great sign of liberal privilege is consistency is for other people you're a liberal you're free to deny the existence of absolutes while imposing absolute standards that others must follow as long as your heroes condemn fossil fuels and support gun control they're free to fly into private jets and live a Megan man should live in mega mansions protected by armed guards you're free to say the vilest things liberals are about conservative blacks or women but any criticism of liberal blacks for women by you is seen as evidence of racism or sexism and finally probably the biggest one liberal privilege never means having to say not guilty laws that apply to everyone else don't apply to you laws protecting public and private property they may be suspended in order to allow left this the room to vent their feelings laws protecting classified information or for betting the abuse of governmental positions to arrest opponents does not apply to you and your allies and I really suggest you look at this article it's from two thousand seventeen in town hall by Timothy Dorothy I mean there you have it those are just some of the signs of liberal privilege and you know people the left is constantly introducing new words and new phrases into our political discourse and I think the phrase really that's been missing is your liberal privilege is showing anyway that's what I think I want to know what you think the numbers to.

"Hundred WW Mike Allen and Saturday midday. We talked about this last week, Donald Trump's presidential campaign this time has its act together in a big way early in the campaign. They got their headquarters set up in Washington DC, not running at, at, at Trump Tower. They have done more and spent more early in the campaign than any campaign presidential campaign in recent history. You can say the same thing for the N C, the Republican National Committee. Boy, I'll tell you what. In two thousand and sixteen they were all over the board. Nobody knew what to do with or about Donald Trump got an interesting dynamic going on there, the RNC chair, and she's doing this plan. The job is Rana. Mcdaniel just happens to be the niece of Utah. Senator Mitt Romney Mitt Romney, of course pretty irrelevant. Now one of the. Trumpers, and it's just an interesting dynamic because Rana McDaniel is one hundred percent behind Donald Trump. Anyway, like I said, they got their act together, the R N C put out a press release immediately after the debate talking about the radicalization of the Democratic Party being on full display this week during the first round of the presidential primary debates and miss McDaniel claims, and she's right that the Democratic Party has made its most dramatic shift to the left in decades. She's quoted in the press releases saying, I think the radicalization of the democrat party was on full display last night to essentially, we should have open borders, throw away the rule of law, and not require legal immigration. That is unsustainable, further went on to say, I don't think any of the Democrats can be Trump because I'm listening to what they are proposing a total. Government takeover of health care, removing people from their private health insurance taking over education and open borders. And boy, I tell you at Rhonda McDaniel, you could not be more, right? And good for you. Forgetting on this immediately after the debate shows me they've got their act together. Hey, I want to go back to the American people here. I wanna talk to Dan in the People's Republic of Oxford. Dan, did you watch the debates? Okay, what do you like to say about it? Then. About what you call it Democratic Party. Yeah.

"Hundred wwl daddy. Mike Allen and Saturday midday we're talking about in poaching. The question. Why does the federal government and the mainstream media want to suppress information about a person status in this country with respect to the media? Why do they not want to report the status the immigration status of people in this country? The example of Alec McKinney. The sixteen year old who participated in the recent shooting at stem school father was twice deported serial felon illegal alien you have to look for with a search light or search warrant to find any information about that. But on the other hand, you have a white police officer. Kill a black suspect. It's all over the place and that's a kind of a larger example. But if they in these two seasons are made in the newsroom by the editors if it doesn't fit with their narrative. Of what they think the story should be just don't report it and the government and I'm looking at this within the framework of the twenty twenty cents. You know, when I first heard this, or when this issue first came up a little over a year ago. I'm scratching my head which I do frequently in these times, I guess, why would the federal government not want to know about a person's immigration status? I mean, the purpose of the census is defined out number one. How many people are in this country number to the status of those people families what their nationality is their citizenship status? That's the whole purpose of it. And the point is it has to be accurate because it's important. And really the determining factor when you're drawing up congressional. Districts when you're talking about the electoral college. Why would you not want to ask a question with that about that? Of course, what happened groups filed in federal court to say that, hey, you know, it's racist to ask that question, went through the district court level, guess it went to the federal court of appeals level now in the United States Supreme court and they're going to have to make the session. The supreme court is pretty darn fast. But of course, it's the usual suspects who are screaming racism and everything else. About a simple question asking about immigration status. Already talked about Nancy Pelosi, we gotta talk about our friend Senator crazy maisy Hirono from Hawaii. She says that quote the administration's ongoing effort to add a citizenship question to the twenty twenty cents is, is part of a concerted effort to cater to the anti immigration base. In fear espoused by President Trump and then Bob Menendez, one of the most useless members of the Senate the tower of integrity. He says, quote, I will continue to fight against this nonsense. Proposal to stoke fear and forced immigrants into the shadows close quote. And that's what you get from the Democrats and the left that kind of rhetoric when you want to ask a question, so you can have an accurate count of who is in this country. And what is their status? Oculus question about a what your status is what your immigration status is immediately. You know, you gotta go to stoke fear and force immigrants into the shadow nonsense. You don't get any substance out of these people what you get is a bunch of rhetoric. Here's the best one Kristen Clark. She's president of the lawyers committee for civil rights under the law. And very very. Left wing group. She calls the citizenship question. Nothing more than a pretext to carry out the Trump administration's racist agenda, and finally, some group called the daily costs liberation league says we must keep up the fight to block this racist anti immigrant question from the census close quote, that's what you get from them nothing ever absorb since contrast that to what congressman Jim Jordan had to say about this recently. And I'm sure you're familiar with Jim Jordan. He's the guy that likes the short sleeved shirts ties, usually untied. But boy, in the congress, he will drill down on a subject and drill down on a witness to if he's examining that witness in a committee of the house. Here's what he says about this whole sentences census. You. Congressman Jordan says the truth is Democrats don't care about the integrity of the census to them political calculations are more important than the population count Democrats believe that asking the citizens citizenship question on the census, and this is what it's all about folks will cause them to lose power in Washington. This is because the census used to reapportion congressional seats and Democrats know that congressional appoint apportionment, according to the population of citizens, rather than the total population will cause them to lose seats in congress. He goes on to say Democrats need the votes of non-citizens to survive as a party. How many times of we said this, on the show, Democrats need the votes of non-citizens to survive as a party. That's why Democrats the cost across the country are already campaigning for non citizens to vote in US elections, and believe it or not they're doing it. And some communities actually have passed that not a citizen of this country. You don't have to pay taxes, but your vote in the election. It's like I've said from the get-go this whole. Illegal immigration issue is the Democrats wanting to build a permanent block a big block of voters into the future. And that's why they're fighting the issue with respect to the census. Hey, we gotta take a break for the news. But we'll be back when we do I want to hear from you. Seven four nine seven thousand one eight hundred the big one Mike Allen, NewsRadio seven hundred wwl w..
What are conservatives saying about Joe Biden's new video?
"So I looked at what Ed Morrissey had written about Russia. Hangover muller. Hangover said, hey, let's talk about that. But now knowing Ed knowing hot air knowing what he's doing. I just offer the curve ball of front and safe. Hi, welcome. It first of all have you caught the Joe Biden video this morning. I've got some of it. I just I I was kind of ripping through it right before I came on the air with we would probably come out interesting. Probably one of the more effective campaign videos that I've seen so far the ones that I've seen from other democratic candidates were sort of all over the place. At least one thing Trump. I, you know, and I'm just so disappointed, and I'm probably naive to be. I mean, I've I've tried to be a head of the curve on a lot of things and not be surprised by so many things. But I thought we would see Joe come in at his likable best with with some things to say about Trump, and we need to sort of point things in a different direction. And I've got a different view of immigration and a different view in the environment. And I just welcomed the opportunity to become your nominee, blah, blah, blah. I did not expect Trump is Hitler America is Germany in the nineteen thirties under him and only I can save you. And my shallow analysis is to be disappointed. I hate this. I wanted better. But I think you might be honest you called effective. And it probably is for exactly the audience that he's pitching to today's democrat party. Remember what he's probably got the centrist ready enhanced. Right. That's the analysis. That's what he's got to be looking at is that there isn't a lot of competition for the traditional Joe Biden democratic voters there. Everybody's pushing to the progressive so biting I think thinking I got those people just by jumping into the race. What I've got to do is be able to compete for the progressive activists against Kemba Harris, you know? Elizabeth Warren along with a lot of other zero percenters in yield. And so so that's tailoring. The message to to hit those progressive activists to to to take those voters away from that into claims sort of a consensus among all the sides of the Democratic Party. So I see the strategy there. I'm with you on that. I kind of thought that he'd be killer uncle Joe coming out of the gate to. But it doesn't surprise me that that he's seeing as the has the activist blood of the party at the moment. And that's what he's going for. Because the the danger is that by being the likable of jeweler guy that he gets tagged as being weak gets tagged as being unfit for the fight. And he's gotta show that he's willing to throw the sharp elbows. I don't know if it so much that or if it's just the fact that he's got to overcome the fact that. He's an old white guy. I think that's really the big issue. Right now is politics Democratic Party. And he's got to find a way to cut through that. And the one way to do that is to go after Trump. Listen, heavy mentioned identity politics on wanna get to your wonderful piece at the week dot com called the Muller war rages on I've got you and the gift of a little bit of time since identity politics does want so much of the democrat party a lot. A lot of women are having a lot of impact Coppola Harris has the the the double dip of women of color, which is such a shameful thing. Because she is is a smart and talented Makamba person. And yet in today's Democratic Party. It's all about the kind of of identity stuff that you mentioned. But here sitting here in Texas. I'm watching beta meltdown, but the more at least as interesting story is how unaccomplished Hispanic man like on Castro has crickets and tumbleweeds. Have you noticed? He is he conspicuous by his absence in any kind of discussion of. Early buzz. I actually a little surprised about that too. Because this is a name that's been popping up for quite a while. I mean, the Castro both Castro brothers have been talked about for at least three or four years maybe longer than that about being the the the index comers in the Democratic Party. And I'm wondering if. I'm wondering if it's just an issue of. Platform. I mean camera Harris comes from California, California's very blue state. It's very large state very important state in in the democratic primaries now because it comes early in the primaries it didn't use to come early in the primaries. I'm wondering if that if it is media situation when you're in the Senate, it's easier to get media attention to when you're in the house, or when you're mayor of a city in Texas. So the Castro brothers haven't really been. Media dominant, right? See them around the media. Has something to do with it. And then again, you get Kirstin Jill, right? Who also comes from it, very important democratic state, very blue state, highly popular state and she's zero percent to. So it's see I think that's the very good analysis. Right. Let's go to what I actually wanted you on the show for but in today's fast moving world. Let's not part company before we talked about your piece, headlined, the Muller war rages on what is your basic feces there on how Democrats are living in post Muller, America. I think that they can't let it go. And I think that they're going to find the more that they can't let go the more. They're gonna disconnect from voters on this. But clearly what they wanna do is they want to reconstitute the mullahs report under their own steam. And and so they're going to try to do what you especially when it comes to obstruction of Justice. I think that they've given up on the Russia collusion thing. Adam Schiff aside? I think that kind of given up on the Russia collusion. Hardly anything about that really since bars report. But certainly since the mullahs report came out, and so I think it's going to focus on instruction as an impeachable offense. And what they wanna do is. They wanna drag all the different witnesses that Muller talked to during the investigation and Adam testify before congress, so they can try their own conclusions rather than Muller's conclusions are William bars conclusions. I I don't think the administration's gonna sit for that second work. And Secondly, I don't think people really care as much as Democrats things they do about. This is something that I think most people felt the Miller report settled and without the without an underlying crime of Russian collusion that really concerned about whether or not Donald Trump head temper tantrums over this looks something else and how it will play than the next chapter of President Trump's combativeness well seem to be to resist every subpoena that comes his way in order to pile on impost Muller, America. Everybody knows my dog knows that these are punitive subpoenas because they can't let it goes you've described. But there's something about resisting subpoenas that have. It's it's it's dicey. It's risky has that gonna play. You're right about this. And in fact, I think is Jonathan swan Mike Allen, it actually has a pretty decent piece about this today is that you can the White House can simply stall this thing forever by refusing cooperate with subpoenas and congress can issue citations all day. But the Justice department isn't going to force that, and if you wanna get example of just look at Eric Holder with fast and furious. They stonewalled it over executive privilege. The Obama technically wasn't even involved in this discussions, and they didn't settle it until Donald Trump came into office where they Eric Holder. Finally turned over some of the documents that they've been looking for so, yeah, you can still this thing forever. And the question of whether does your political damage, it it certainly didn't with Obama Obama got reelected, even though Eric Holder was found in contempt over operation fast and furious, and he was very popular throughout his presidency. Even though he was stolen that investigation. And in this case. Factor for both sides is that they waived executive privilege for more. So Muller is interviewing all these people. Executive privilege now Democrats are arguing look that the precedent. That means that you that. It's it's waved forever. And that's a legal question. It's certainly going to be. Have to be nailed down. However, the Trump administration can turn around and say, look, we cooperated with the independent counsel cooperated with the guy that we didn't like, and we all these people already talked to investigators, and they have a report a full report that tells them exactly what they found reductions part of the report, and I think that's Trump administration. Can't successfully argue that they cooperated so much during the special counsel investigation that it is illegitimate attempt at congress to try to reconstitute that into a kangaroo court, and they're simply not going to cooperate with necessarily gonna hurt

"Mike Allen. I don't think anyone wants to fight the Crenshaw on this issue. Because in fact, I think the Democrats don't wanna fight twenty twenty on this hill, and they've been fighting picking all the wrong hills to fight on. And I don't care how many people tell me it's an incitement to violence. It isn't I condemn violence against everyone. I don't think Muslim citizens as class citizens. But I think the political matter Democrats don't wanna talk about this, do they? Why are Republicans? Republicans want to make this. Huge pieces. My grandma would say she appeared to minimize it in passing I played before it became a controversy. And my comment was one ought not to minimize the Pearl domestic Pearl Harbor largest tack on America as some people did something, but I play our whole comment. So people understand that's what she was doing. She wasn't focused on it. She just said it in passing but normally one positive and pays the appropriate to the victims normally some people. That's what I do wouldn't you do it that way? I've heard you do it that way it's over ripped story. And I think she passed over at too lightly. That's why became against the backdrop of anti semitic comments a story. So yesterday, a spokes person for congresswoman Omar tells the New York Times. Increase in direct Representative. Directly referencing video. And of course, the president pinned at the top of his Twitter be a video that interspersed. Footage of the twin towers being hit some. Twin towers and they wanted to relive it. It was there in the president's video continuous books person from Mars series of menacing over the last few days some Keating her yesterday. Approach that she'd ask police to review security for the congresswoman and tweet now has been taken down from the president's Twitter feed. How do you feel about the president? Moved take down that tweet because there was already one not trying to kill Omar. But I go back to the Bernie Sanders that tried to kill every member of congress. We have to be careful about our conversation. But we can't immunize stupidity. And it was stupid what she did to minimize nine eleven in passing not intentionally. But just that's how she and and then turn every criticism of public official into an incitement now the president. I don't think president was attempting to incite violence against her president likes disturb the pot, and so stirring, the pot became at this time counterattacked point. Yeah. It was during the pot. And so I just think okay. Let's not stir the pot so much Dan Crenshaw's, right? Let's go back to the original sin here, which is minimizing nine eleven and my question do Democrats want to spend a few weeks talking about this Mike Allen? No. Let me go to a different thing. Bassim Mamani tweeted out. The guy Benson picked out. Why has a newsroom in camera phone feature in? I retweeted it along with note that you'd be on the show right now. It is the most chilling thing that anybody cellphone can do surveillance at this lever. I'm wondering, do you think there's a story today in the New York Times about the FBI barring some China scholars from visiting over US visiting over spying fears. Do you think the United States is beginning to wake up to the artificial intelligence revolution? In what the surveillance state means? I'm glad you highlighted this story, and there's so many elements of it. And the New York Times has a new element today pointing out that eight artificial intelligence now is being used by China in a new automated reaches facial recognition technology is being used in China to help track separate minority groups and. Pointed out. AM investors. And so I can see this becoming a debate. Here. I believe it is going to be a debate. Tom cotton is a big Weiwei national security threat. Congressman Mike Gallagher is big on this congress secretary of state, Mike, pine pale, vice president parents and national security adviser John Bolton they've all talked about this. And I think the difficult thing here will be keeping good relations with China while being very firm about the security state that is a state within the state in the PR. See we can walk that tightrope Mike Allen. It'd be very difficult because if you look at the tech superiority, the tech capability is deploying around the world like there's increasing concern by people in our government about the. Monitoring capability the disruptive keep ability to hack to take something off line all will be in the hands of a company that. Where the Chinese state certainly has entrees. Front page story yesterday in the LA times Lee. You the line is the great norm. Pearlstine, of course. I did not know that. Now, the LA times, but he has been over in China and handed helped dig in to the story and read one passage from that. For sure is a story that is worthy of their time. I as you read down into it you see. This is a live from the times yesterday. Spy? Critics worry the companies massive global footprint in places such as Europe could give China immense leverage in time of conflict. Yep. That's it in a nutshell. That's the problem. Mike Allen is put his finger on. And I'll go read norm Pearlstine.

"Mike Allen and Saturday midday on what looks to be a pretty darn good Saturday. It's going to get up in the upper sixties in the afternoon seventies. Actually, I was just told. So what that means is that's convertible weather, which means I am going to get my one thousand nine hundred sixty nine Chrysler three hundred convertible out of storage today, and maybe take a little spin. But in the Saturday morning rant wanna talk about a number of things the first one being just the bizarre and sad story broke earlier in the week Giulio Neo from nine on your side, actually broke the story. That's the story of one Brian Michael Rini who said try to get police to believe that he was one Timothy Pitzen young man who went missing at the age of. Six in two thousand and ten and when I say bizarre and sad the sad part of it is for a brief time a brief sliver of time his family and his father is still alive. The mother is not I think she committed suicide, but I'm not exactly sure. But to give that family just that little Ray of hope is just horrible just horrible and out. Great coroner. Dr lashed me some Marco, I think said it best. She said the case has been difficult because there's no greater win for law enforcement than defined a missing child, and I can tell you the FBI the Newport police the sharonville police, I don't want to start naming them all because I'll leave somebody out. They did a wonderful job on this thing. And they worked hard on it, and you know, back in the day law enforcement agencies. They didn't really cooperate with one another the way they do now, and especially state cooperating with federal I don't think that's the case anymore. And it certainly was not the case with respect to Mr. Rennie and listening to this and reading up on it. His brother, you might have heard has been pretty vocal about it. I mean, obviously loves his brother, but says he's got a history of mental illness. He referenced that believe schizophrenia asked burgers, a number of things, and Mr. Rennie has a history of doing this stuff. And what his brother said, the one thing the one takeaway that I took from it. And again as someone who is in the system every day. His brother said he was fine when he was in treatment. But when he got out of treatment or off of treatment more accurately, that's when the problems arose again, as I said, this isn't the first time that Mr. Rennie has done that. Here's the thing. I mean, he ask yourself a question is it a law enforcement issue? Or is it a criminal Justice issue or excuse me, a mental health issue can argue both? But I kind of come down on the mental health side of it. Yes. This guy deserves to be punished. Yes. He gave that family. Just a brief Ray of hope, but what's in it for him. I mean, it's not like he's going to get money for doing it. He knows or should know a rational person would know that they're going to get caught. So there's no financial gain for him. At all. Here's the problem people. And I see it every day our criminal Justice system and our jail. Sales. And the county Justice center is the perfect example has become a repository for people with mental illnesses. You know back in the day. We've talked about this a number of times on this show back in the seventies. Just about every city state had a local mental hospital for lack of a better word, the one here was long view. I was never there to visit or for any other reason. But I'm told it wasn't the nicest place in the world. But people with mental issues could go there, and so much of it with people with mental issues like this and people that I deal with the criminal Justice system so much of it is taking your meds. You know, if you're insecure facility, and I don't mean a dungeon or anything like that. I mean, a good clean caring facility instead of being out on the streets. You're going to be better taken care of and again back in the seventies. The civil libertarians all said, you know, this is cruel. Let's try to take care of them on the street. And you know what? I don't fault them for that. I don't fault them for that. At all. It was very well intentioned. But I'm telling you in the year two thousand and nineteen it just doesn't work anymore. So we'll see what happens with Mr. Riney. I mean, it's just so incredibly sad that the family had a little bit of hope. He's now facing federal charges, by the way of lying to an FBI officer the normal penalty for that is five years, but I believe his is eight years because under federal law is I understand it. There's an enhancement if you lie to a federal officer in the course, and conduct of investigating missing or exploited children. So he's staring down the barrel of eight years. Maybe a question of his competency to stand trial. But I don't think it will result in a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity because for a plea like that. You gotta show that you don't know the difference between right and wrong. But I just think in this country, there's a small movement towards this. We have to look to again reopen in a very humane way our mental facilities. So you don't have you know, Jim Neal's jail with with fifty percent of people with mental health issues. Just my two cents worth on that just a very sad story. And speaking of sad stories, we have the situation in Chicago. We still have the situation in Chicago with Jesse small et and Kim FOX broke in the news yesterday that Mark garra goes who is representing small at now really made some idiotic and stupid statements, and Mr. Garrett goes, by the way, he staring down the barrel of some pretty serious federal charges for cozying cozying up if. If you will with Michael Abernathy. But anyway, he's now representing and I think has represented Jesse small ad. And of course, the city of Chicago is asking for a hundred and thirty thousand dollars to get paid back for police overtime on this case. Well, anyway, as a result of that demand and the demand letter went out, I think early this week. The lawyer his lawyer, Mr. Garrett goes said that he warned that Mr. smollet will not be intimidated into paying the demanded some well, you know, what I'm so glad he won't be intimidated because he put a lot of people out, and he got he got a gift from Kim FOX the prosecutor in Cook County at just looking at this letter. It's amazing. What Garrett goes said in the letter he says your claim that smollet filed a false police report in orchestrated is own attack is false and defamatory. Really? Well, let me tell you something Mr. Gary goes, and there's a lawyer I think, you know, this truth is a defense to any defamation action and without question because the Chicago police released the the file on the investigation without question. Mr. smollet committed the offenses. That he was charged with and then he threatens to if they keep going forward with this one hundred thirty thousand dollar demand. He's going to demand of you all the evidence from the criminal case, including the Tyrian that was never handed over to the defense before the charges were dropped. Really you. Sure you want that. I mean, it's going to show. I think overwhelming Gill. And he also wants takes sworn testimony from those two brothers who told the police that they help Jesse smollet staged the attack. Not to mention you have them on them on TV on camera actually purchasing the stuff that they needed to do to pull this off. So Mr Garriga goes, I if I were in your position, I think I'd kind of lay low given your problems. Pailin up with Michael avenue, and maybe just kind of lay off a little bit on the whole situation with hundred thirty thousand dollars and let your client pay that. And he can then get on with his life. Speaking of Kim, FOX. That's the Cook County. They call them state's attorney Cook County prosecutor she's elected as prosecutors almost everywhere are the head of the F O P, the F O P in the city of Chicago a guy by the name of Kevin Graham, kind of coming out strong against this prosecutor, and you can't blame him. This is what Mr Graham has said, quote, we have had problems getting felony charges approved for battery to police officers. I've had officers in my office where they're kneecaps were broken where their fingertips were nearly bit off, and we can't get felony charges approved on this close quote. You know, that's beyond. Reprehensible if it's true, and I have no reason to believe that it's not in the F O P President Mr Graham is asking for MS FOX to step down. Of course, she won't. But she's elected and listened to her statement. I think it was yesterday in response to Mr Graham statement. All right. The prosecutor MS Faulk says, quote, I was elected by the people of Cook County to pursue community safety prevent harm and uphold the values of fairness and equal Justice. She goes on to say, I'm proud of my record and doing that. And I plan on doing so throughout the end of my term, and if the people so will it into the future. Let me tell you something as someone who was elected prosecutor that's a bunch of garbage. That's not what a prosecutor's job is to do a prosecutor's job. I is to do Justice, but Justice in that case was not making the charges go away because of political pressure. Their job. I is to pursue Justice and secondarily to prosecute criminals, she failed to do that. And hopefully, she will suffer the consequences at the ballot box. Hey, we gotta take a break. But we'll be back.

"Mike Allen, Saturday midday guess what? People. The Cincinnati Reds are in first place. So are the Chicago Cubs in the Milwaukee Brewers, but the reds are in first place winners, of course, on opening day Winterson pretty impressive fashion here to talk about it is our guy formerly of Goodyear now our guy at great American ballpark. Yeti Armbruster yet lots to like about that game the other day. Absolutely. You can't go on sixty two an hour until you wanna know there you go. Give us give us a critique of the game. Those weren't able to watch it. I'll tell you. Why David bell must be feeling pretty good now about making the call for Louis castio to start after a rather lackluster spring. Yeah. And he pitched well, you know, I think it was a it was a good call because easier future. You know, he's the guy that you're gonna have to stop. He is number one stuff. They'll put it in his hands and say, you know, you're going to take to the next level. And he responded really well, expect more of the same as his next starting as the months where on hearing this year. I think you'll ever obviously, a, unfortunately, he didn't get the win came in. Gave up a run. But you know, that doesn't take away from the white he pitched, and you really can't control your record as a starting pitcher. Now, a lot of it just depends on other people yet you're too modest to say it, but you did say it on this show a couple of weeks ago with respect to the pick of Louis castio to start the game. What you said today is exactly what you said then and you were right about it. What about what about the use of Iglesias? I think that's something that we talked about it all expected based on what David bell said you think we're going to see him more into inning situations. I think we were well, David bell. They're determined that you that. It's kind of interesting because I talk a lot with Jeff Brantley just about guys pitching in the. Yeah. The ninth inning. And while it's. I think it's easier to find guys that can close games. He goes there's just something different about the ninth inning. And maybe what we care Feo. A doesn't get his ear up when he's pitching in anything, but the ninth inning. But he's going to have to learn to do it though. I mean, if they're going to keep using him in the seven for BA, then he has to adjust and pumped up in the eighth years in the night. And hopefully that that happens after a few games. Maybe what do you think? Maybe he was just a little bit uncomfortable being in there the eighth for that for the first time. I guess I don't know. I don't know if he was or not I just think it's. You know, you just gotta psych yourself up. And you know, get forget the traditional roles of a closer only comes in the ninth inning. Because I don't think that's going to happen with this team. And you know, anybody that has to be ready to pitch in the sixth seventh eighth or ninth. And he he's not alone in that. He's got to learn how to come in earlier and get the job done. What is your other takeaways for this opening day game? And I know obviously, it's only it's only one game. But what else do you take away? I gotta tell you, man. Jose peraza. Sure looked good. That's exactly what I was gonna say. Jose Peraza study could be I would not be surprised if he's not an all star this year. He is. He was good. All he had a good year last year. He was raped during the spring, and he's carried it over any move positions in the fucking one bit. And and honestly it helps the team defensively Jose. Raciest is a goal gawk caliber shortstop. So with that move. I just think Rosza could be the guy this year. I mean, Marty said it that he thinks at some point he's going to win a batting title. And I don't doubt that because he can really hit. Yeah. That was it was great to see that about Derek Dietrich. Where did that guy? Come from. He came from the Marlins how about the Marlins. Here's the guy that had like four hundred fifty at that last year. So I think actually I think it was more than that. And the reds picked him up for next to nothing. And you know, he's the he can play infield. He can play out there. And you saw the poppy has his bat, and nobody was more pumped. He was rammed into basis when he hit that. Yeah. It's going to be interesting to see how he plays out this season. Tell you what I mean opening day. He sure looked good. We got the two ten start today. I will be there big day. The sheriff tells me that he thinks and I think he's right. It's going to rain all day, and perhaps may get the game in but you got sunny gray coming out and starting for the reds. What are you looking for out of him? Again. He you know, he didn't pitch much in the spring because he was a little banged up. But when he was in there. So effortless. He he knows how the pitch he's not trying to strike everybody out. And he's him along with Hannah Roark or two of the guys that this rest is pitching staff and learn a lot from and he's really pumped about pitching in Cincinnati. You know, his dad he grew up in Nashville is dad was a huge reds fan and bought into games and Cinncinnati-based he remembers crossing over in Kentucky walking across one of the bridges and come into the parking. So he's he's a little bit psyched up to start pitching here. He puts here before. In fact, I think he was in the all star game in two thousand fifteen as well. So this is first time, but it's the first time wearing a red uniform pitching at great American ballpark. So it it'll be good. I think you'll have a good season. You know, they got him. I gave him the three year extension. Some stability him and castio. You know, that's great. It will be and it'll be great to see how he starts today. Hopefully, they do get it in just a question on the injury front scooter genetic. I think we we all pretty much know. Yeah. Two to three months Nixon Zell with that slide into into first base. I think it was Monday night or slide into somewhere. What what's the bottom line on his injury? Sprained ankle. I mean, he's going to be in a boot for a while. I don't think if anything they're worried about long term. It's just you know, but they're not gonna rushing. Keep the boot on when you're ready to play you start playing and Nixon's is going to be up here sooner than later. There's no question about it. I know he was sent down. And a lot of people disagreed with it. I I don't think I get because Shutler plays. So well this spring, right? But he's he's going to be up here. And he's gonna be a star on this team. And I bet he's up here before the all-star break. Yeah. I think you're right. I mean, how could they not get him back up there? And I agree with you yet. I mean from a financial perspective the club had to do that. And based on remarks that I saw from Nixon Zell, he certainly he didn't pop off or say anything stupid. I mean, I think he accepts it and understands it, and he knows he's going to be back here soon. Yeah. His agent said pumping. But the agent job he's going to say something so you just ignore that and move on. And he's going to have hopefully along and really productive careers of Cincinnati rat. Absolutely. Hey, before we let you add or any other observations that you've seen after all of one game that you want to tell listeners about I guess I the enthusiasm of this team. Yeah. I mean, they came out they came out swinging. They you know, they were down. You never really thought they were out though. And you know, you get a big hit in having guys like Erick eight can and Lopez on your team where in the past. We had you know, just nobody's honestly, these are big league proven guys. They the situation is not too big forum and having guys like that on your team. They can't do enough you're already scenic 'cause scooter goes down and a pops right in there. He had the starting shortstop you. Don't miss a beat team hasn't had in in a couple years and Iglesias had a pretty good day at the plate to absolutely people. Don't realize he's he's like to sixty five to seventy career hitter. So. Yup. Modest slack. You know, he he's not a slept with the bat. You can play a little bit. We shall see yet. As always we appreciate you coming in and giving us your thoughts. All right. And it looks like the rain has slowed down a bit downtown Cincinnati. But. Why don't we get it in me to me too? All right. Yeah. Thank you. All right. See you. Bye bye, David e Armbruster our guy at great American ballpark, and boy seems pretty optimistic as he has been throughout the spring training. And boy watching that team on opening day. They got themselves into a jam a couple times. But they sure got themselves out of it too with with players for the most part that we're not here. Last year. So we will see what happened. We got a two ten start today. Coverage begins at one ten on the big one. So we'll see what they do in game two. Gotta take a break. But we'll be back.

Mike Allen probably scare a lot of people. It's color coded. It's color coded, but I just need to have everything planned out for me to feel in like in charge of my own life and organized, and I will block off like half an hour to do laundry, and then the next half an hour that make dinner like it's very, it's how I get a lot of stuff done. It brings me peace seeing that way. You and I are similar. Any is not like that at all. Right. Okay. And that and that can be really difficult for a couple. Yeah, I don't manage your time the same way. Exactly. So Nick really had to compromise aspect and he'd be like, okay, look, we can put a couple of things on the counter, but you just need to give me like, you know, I can't have a be every night, like I just need to be more spontaneous. And I realize even with things like making reservations for birthdays, he'll make reservations for my birthday like the day before. And at the beginning I looked at it as someone that didn't care. And I would think like, you know, you didn't put any. Onto this, you out my gift. Like, you know, you got my gift like the day before, you know, whereas all by gifts like a month before and I'll be like make a reservation at like a place. I know he likes and but then I realized like for my birthday this year, he went to like fifteen different stores to look for something granite did it and ended up buying the gift the day before, but it doesn't mean that he doesn't care. He cares much this is just his personality, right? Not like thinking about a birthday a month in advance. He thinks about things when they happen and you've been together with him long enough snow like that is how Nick expresses like caring for somebody. What when you first met him? That's harder like mentally grasped, which I didn't understand it as well, because sometimes you need to give people time give yourself time to get to know the person and I'm realizing so we had a guest on our podcast of bunch of episode. Well, she's been on twice, Jillian Trekkie, and she told this crazy story in her newsletter recently about a squirrel that. She saw that was like dying on the ground in her dog. I'd like it was like she like looked up from her phone and saw like her dog growling at this poor squirrel that's dying. I promise the stories related and. Anyway, she was just screaming. She thought her dog had like caught the squirrel and was like freaking out trying to call these vets like feeling horrible that our dog had like finally caught a squirrel and then half an hour later, another squirrel drops a tree and falls. This is really sad. Apparently little baby, squirrel, sometimes just fall from trees. Their mom doesn't like bring them food or they can't. I know it's, it's actually that part is really, we're all leaping to their debt leaping to their death anyways. So she realized that that her dog had not caught the squirrel. She had just as soon it and it was like a metaphor for the stories we tell ourselves and it's just been sticking with me a lot. So the story that I used to tell myself was that Nick didn't care as much about me because he wouldn't make reservations or by gifts last minute or wouldn't ask me out on a date on a Saturday, which was my when I was working. Like an office job in a magazine was like my big date night day. And so my story was he doesn't. Care about me, but that wasn't true. It's that like we're opposites attract and our brains work differently. And sometimes you just can't always believe the stories that you tell yourself, but is the nicest story about squirrels jumping to their deaths ever heard, and I will also keep it with me.
