Kyle Rittenhouse Is Exactly the Kind of Enemy the Left Wants to Create

"If you show up to a rally or you show up to a city burning while the National Guard is not there and the police have been told to stand down and you defend yourself because someone's trying to kill you and that someone trying to kill you is a child rapist? You're gonna get tried for first degree murder in your family has to go into debt to try to defend you, which we're seeing right now with Kyle rittenhouse. And by the way, if this was 1892, and it was the KKK trying to take over a city, and it was a black 17 year old that took a gun to go to the burning city. We would have like a national holiday to that young man. Seriously. Not saying that's what we need for Kyle, not saying we'd like a national holiday, but I'm saying that it would be everyone would say this is the most amazing heroic thing I've ever seen. But instead, let's just be let's just be as blunt and honest about it. Kyle rittenhouse tracks a box of the type of let's say enemy they want to create. And we saw this earlier with what happened with the Nicolas Sandman case. You guys remember that the Covington kids? Remember the Covington kids? Where Nicholas Sandman on the steps of the capitol with that lunatic came up with the drum and started banging it in his head, and his head was his face, and we were told that the young kid was the one that's provoking and saying racist things, total lie. Totally exonerated one his lawsuits. But no, the thing that Kyle rittenhouse did wrong is that he fit the perfect type of archetype where Joe Biden came out and said that Kyle rittenhouse is a white supremacist. Said that on Twitter, hope he gets sued for that one day in civil court. There is no evidence of that. But instead, here is the essence of it is that there was a picture, the same thing that happened on the southern border when you had border patrol agents on horseback, and they said, oh, they're using whips to go after migrants, total lie, it's called a bridle or saddle. You ever ride a horse before New York Times weirdo, right? And of course not. Never even west of the Mississippi River, let alone ever mounted a horse, right? No, it's a whip. No, but all they have is the narrative. So Kyle rittenhouse, they had the picture they wanted. AR-15, mouth wide open, young, white, Trump loving, a green shirt and hat backwards, looking like he's kind of playing the insurrectionist. Boom. Put him in

Hurricane Ida Slams Louisiana, Forces Mississippi River to Reverse Flow

"One of the most powerful storms to ever hit the. Us made landfall over the weekend. Hurricane ida directly hit port fouchane louisiana with one hundred and fifty mile an hour winds flooding rain in life threatening storm surges. That were more than seven feet above normal. The storm ripped the roofs off homes businesses and at least one hospital it snapped trees and power lines flooded streets and left more than a million electricity customers in the dark. In fact the entire city of new orleans lost power the winds were so strong they reverse the flow of the mississippi river near new orleans something the us geological survey calls extremely uncommon only four stronger storms in history of ever hit the mainland. Us and as of early this morning hurricane ida has weakened a little but it is still packing hurricane strength as it moves inland tornado. Watches have also been issued for parts of louisiana mississippi alabama and florida. For a lot of people this is all too familiar ida hit on the exact same date as historically devastating hurricane katrina sixteen years ago. I came ashore about forty five miles west of where katrina first struck land but the area was more prepared. This time since katrina hit newer stronger more sophisticated levees were built to hold back storms. Like this and it seems they've been able to hold up this time much better than the ones that failed following katrina more than eighteen. Hundred people died after katrina. This time. it's too early to know what the human toll may be. Hundreds of thousands of people evacuated ahead of hurricane ida but not everyone got out so there are twenty one search and rescue teams from about fifteen different states ready to find survivors as soon as the storm calms down the federal emergency management agency or fema also sending more than two thousand emergency workers hundreds of extra ambulances and millions of meals and leaders of water.

The Story of Pecos Bill and the Tornado

"Once upon a time in the wild west a little boy named bill fell off a wagon by the side of the pecos river. Now a normal baby would have cried. His eyes out that this boy was different. He crawled up to a mama coyote and just acted like one of her pups. It was a little hard with him. Not being as hairy. But he was raised by the coyotes for years until his older brother eventually found him and brought him home years later after that he went by the name of paco's spill and as he got older he became famous for being the toughest bronco buster there ever was and he proved it time and time again. Now in case you're a greenhorn. A bronco buster is someone who gets horses used to a saddle. Some horses are okay with being britain but others not so much the fastest and strongest horses. The best for rough riding would fight the saddle. They had to be ridden through the fighting until they got used to it to make that happen someone would have to try and ride while they were still wild. Of course the stallions would buck and spin and kick and jump and go absolutely wild until they sent their writer into the dirt. It was a hard job and bronco busters where the people they called when someone couldn't break a horse themselves and when you had a horse too tough to mean to downright nasty for a buster. You called paco's bill. Bill would travel around the wild parts of america looking for adventure and boy did he find it on his travels. He singlehandedly doug the mississippi river battled the bear lake monster to a standstill and fell in love with a wild woman who rode giant catfish down the rivers. And all that. It's just the first go round in the rodeo of bills life

Police Say Nearly 250 Arrested in Minnesota Pipeline Protest

"People turned out in pretty large numbers in northern minnesota this week. More than a thousand people there to protest the construction of a new multi-billion dollar oil pipeline a pipeline that among other things would cross through the delicate headwaters of the mississippi river. The protesters are trying to block that new pipeline and all the environmental hazards that it brings with it. A separate group of protesters made their way into one of the new pipelines pump stations. That's currently under construction. They piled a whole bunch of stuff including a vote at the entrance way so nobody could get in or out. The demonstrators then started locking themselves to the construction equipment bodily at at that site that had the effect of shutting down all work on on the pipeline for the day. Eventually police showed up. They started dragging protesters through the dirt to arrest them. About two hundred. People were arrested just at the pump station but the response by law enforcement wasn't just a local one in terms of local minnesota police officers. Look at this. This is a helicopter belonging to the federal government. Us customs and border patrol cv. Pista flew this helicopter. Really low dangerously low over this pipeline protest using the rotor wash from the chopper to blow dirt and debris all over the place apparently to try to get those protesters to leave see. Bp now says they are investigating the use of that helicopter. You're not supposed to use a government helicopter like that even if it is against protestors especially if it's against protestors this pipeline which is called line three it's pipeline by a company called bridge it was approved greenland under president trump. The protesters are pushing for president biden to suspend the permit for the pipeline before construction on it finished about two hundred. Protesters are camped. Out along the pipeline.

I pay taxes also so i look at it as though my taxes just cleaned my road but i do believe that if you come and you live on the river that you do it with open eyes and know that it's going to flood and you can't constantly be saying help me help me while the mississippi river has always flooded davenport and nearby cities.

The floodwaters come within a few feet of the road. We're at where just a few homes are left standing since since nineteen ninety-three they have been buying this property out. The city wants people out of harm's way and land to absorb floodwaters.

"The mississippi river unfold in illinois and unusual family is living in blitz they are three bald eagles to male and a female raising three aglet together and a lot people are watching him do it because of the live video feed that has been set up by the upper mississippi river national wildlife refuge alley her slag knows all about them her flag is a writer who wrote their story for the national audubon society would reach her slug in brooklyn new york alley this is quite a blended family isn't what is he up to what was the last time you checked what's going on in that know ever since i wrote the piece actually while i was researching the peace even i've had them up on my desktop almost all the time it's just sort of a comfort has been there i'm not sure why but i'm looking at them right now on one of the funniest things i've seen gene is happening one of the birds is sort of guarding the babies from a freak sort of windstorm but he his back end is facing the camera so his tail and his back better they're all blown out an it's very very funny shot can you just describe press the relationship between these three birds is you understand it so from what i understand the current birds and then that have all mated together at one point or another so they're in eight an actual intimate relationship together and they all share parenting they all feed the baby and they'll sit on the mess a the guard the baby's first civilized to this love triangle is working very well it seems to be and it's been going on for quite some time a and it's gone through two different female inmates the first female inmates at these two males ahead together perished in attack in two thousand seventeen this is what the ego you called hope yes yes okay let's go back to the beginning 'cause i originally there was one male one female eagle that were nesting together right correct that was valor one in help okay and how did that relationship go so they both showed up i believe it was in two thousand thirteen i think they'd been seen a little bit before then but it was very clear that they were together in this mess in two thousand thirteen and they had babies together glitz and a valid one it seemed quite understand his role as a parent plus he wasn't that committed to it he would get on and that's where maybe ten minutes and then leave before the mom came back in the hopes seem to be having a lot of trouble with him she's pretty frustrated with valor as as one might imagine a and i don't know if they have actual squabbles without it but she did something rather pragmatic and she found a new mates you seem to be much better at being a parent the next year there the second a male eagle on the nest whip her you call you call valor to right exactly i'm not sure how that happened the audience who's watching the webcam at that time there was a there is a vote on what say original eagles names she'd be and they had dollar one and hope so and i'm not sure why they just decided to go salads to the second eagle but that's how it turns out now with valor to to showed up and joined in and she would be a better made from hope much better he actually seem to get it he was very good at you know doing all of these adjust ational and once the babies were born taking care of them feeding them protecting them but valor one never left we just around like he didn't do any of the parental duties at least not at first but he just hung around and valor to didn't scare him off like a most predator birds don't don't have two males that consistent one intimate relationship and shit like that it was not for long and then within a couple of years we've seen suddenly being brought back into the fold in taking taking on parental responsibilities because i think they just got it by watching valor to do it hope but as you point out hopeless killed a horribly she was attacked by other eagles is that right yes so she was gone and is dollar one dollar to the did the boys still hanging out with each other yeah q male they need an fended off be a rotting eagles and took care of the baby's until they fledged just two males i didn't have a female at that time when the next it's so strange but yeah the next year that's one start showed up at the star seem reluctant to get involved in a relation and ongoing situation that's interesting i don't i don't know i mean based on what i have heard from the stewart is that she was doing all the things that bird do in the beginning of their courting they you know they help sort of put together a home and she was moving things around the nest and you know a lot of a funny sort of anecdote is that some of the male the male would put a sticker something in one place and she pick it up and move it somewhere else and then let me do as we do now do you know whether it's unusual for these kinds of threesome among bald eagles it is unusual at least it's unusual for us to see it one thing that i've i've heard from the scientists that i spoke to who knows what's going on behind closed doors or in places where humans can't get too but at least in terms of what people have observed it's very rare to see three bald eagles or any predators really gather what's even more rare to see a trio that is a that is a true including partnership on this show we have done other stories about different kinds of of of unusual we think unusual relationships between birds and animals the same sex a vultures who hatch and abandoned together two males but perhaps these stories are not so unusual i mean we make assumptions about than the world don't we maybe we don't observe and his closest we might exactly and i think i'll know these these mysterious creatures and what we see is just a very small snippet of what of their behavior and what they do so they have this view is so it's so wonderful because it's really showing the world that like there's a lot more that's possible and there's a lot that sort emulate what we do a great story alley in thanks for telling it and also we will give people the links they need to go and watch the livestream coz it sounds fascinating thank you a wonderful thank you alley her slag wrote the bald eagle family for the national audubon society we reached her in brooklyn and we do have more on this story including a link to the livestream were tricky though we put it on our website cbc dot c h slash h as you've heard of late we had as it happens have been dog it'd be pursuing big corporate decisions behind the new and some say improved captain eyeliner the character has lost his hat and turtleneck and gained a powerful allure eyeliner says he's quote to the same trustworthy captain but now people see him in a new light but it seems are listeners are split down the middle as to whether that new light is something they can get on board with it okay on facebook robert mark mccormack commented more like captain high daddy laurie paxton wrote triangle trout just got more appealing and sarah alice is also hungry she wrote never have i believe in fish sticks more than calling on row regarding the captain's new videos with off saying i can't wait to see the queer eye episode for this make over but many have you regard is transformation with suspicion like andy reid who asked bit of botox garrett hardy cochran tried to make this regional commenting on facebook's that he looks like he just moved from saint john's the calgary somebody also compared the new captain did celebrities including kurt russell bradley cooper andy trevorrow guy an some of even compared him oddly enough to me full disclosure though like billy i have never been to see okay may have to do if you're departure anyway finally kudos to m j w on twitter who spun it compelling stories synopses out of the new look he wrote this son of the original captain kind of looks like a hipster lumber sexual all he needs is applied shirt he looks like he let the old man do the fishing while he's failed the desk get head office he does add that he likes both looks the end there there you have it looking at your opinions on captain highline are the ones salting now tracy dog.

"So Lyle, how does this this Momo, the Missouri monster flab end like more with a whimper than a bang, and then the sightings kind of Peter out and then life goes back to normal in this small Mississippi River town or or what? Well, pretty much. I mean, you know, that nothing was resolved there. And in the sightings, you know, kind of trailed off there towards, you know, August there was some other residual incidents where people saw at the newspapers, you know, kind of lost interest and moved on. But as you start to research, he's cases you find that you know, other things were seen or smelled reported. And so even the next spring. There was some incidents that came up. And then in my research, I found that even a year later that was a really good sighting in that area that you know, just wasn't reported to the newspapers, but you know, what sensually. You know, the the case of Momo in that very small town was just a flash pot of high strangeness that went on. And then if you, you know, sorta widen the scope and start looking at this in terms of the big foot like sightings, you know. They certainly continued. And there was a long history of them up and down that Mississippi River corridor there in Missouri. So it was something that wasn't completely unique other than it was such a concentrated thing. And it was so much news coverage through so much high strangeness going on all at once. They just became, you know, iconic the Momo is sort of this this I con of of you'll Bigfoot like creature. So now even today if somebody says they've seen big foot in Missouri often, they say, you know, I saw a Momo. So it's it's just become that recognizable as as a care. Dr. Right. It would appear the creature has a brand manager. Good brand. Have they has the town embraced Momo to this day in in the way that let's say, for example, point pleasant has embraced the Mothman has spawned this this industry they have like a festival. No, not yet. And you know, when I went to the town, you know, doing research in looking into this case, you know, I was well somewhat disappointed. You know, I didn't even see any anything a, you know, a hamburger restaurant or anything that played into the to the Momo thing back in the day that though six flags over mid America, which was an amusement park out of Saint Louis. They actually had a moment ride. So but today there was no evidence that the town had taking advantage of this in any way and so far Nomo festival, but perhaps with the book out, maybe we'll give them some incentive in in like point pleasant in the Mothman, and there's been lizard man festivals and boggy creek festival. So you know, who knows it could happen. And when you arrived in Louisiana, Missouri. Where there any I witnesses still around, for example, the the hair. Christon children or Doris the elder who was fifteen at the time. Did were they willing to sit down and speak to you. Yes. I did. I did speak to doors, and you know, that that's crucially these cases to get the reflections of from from the actual person. Unfortunately, you're talking about some of these old cases many passed on. But Doris was still willing to talk about it. And was still, you know, adamant and stood behind that. She she and her brothers sauce something there that day sauce Impey physical something that has was described as the Harry upright creature. You know, what she said she suffered some ridicule over the years people. Ha and this and that, but you know, she said I saw what I saw in. You know in speaking to these people you can. There's no doubt. My mind that they saw what they said. And so yes, she she was one I could speak to and and sort of the most famous of the witnesses, certainly, and and what about any law enforcement, did you speak to any of them who remembered that I didn't wouldn't able to track down anybody that was in that law enforcement that would speaking about it. But, you know, fortunately, in this case, the, you know, the, especially the the posse in the law enforcement statements as to what they thought at the time well recorded, and so by just sort of combining the witnesses and interview others that had seen sasquatch like creatures in the area over the years, you know, even into the nineties and two thousands of combining that with what was recorded in the newspapers as well as there was some summaries written up in some of the. The old with like flying saucer magazine of all places, and and you know, fortunately, there was some some investigators that recorded their thoughts at the time. So it had some material, and you just want to gather all this stuff up during the research and piece together the whole story in a in a complete fashion. All right. Let's go to the phones. We'll begin on the the wildcard line. Mike is in Saint Peters, Missouri. Mike is that anywhere near Louisiana, Missouri. Well, it's not too far away. Back in seventy three I was living in Jonesboro Surrey, which is about seventy miles south of Louisiana. I I really never heard of it this the detail of this story, I heard a Momo, but I I didn't know about the Louisiana connection anyway out squirrel on south of Jones. Berg about five miles at Daniel Boone forced. And I got got out early. It was getting late is getting to be by noon. I was coming back, and I was walking between tree and a pond. And I heard this. Roar scream it was a power as powerful. I can't even describe what the sound it was. It was so loud, you could almost feel it. Anyway, I had a four ten twenty two overnight under and I knew that thing popped out of the woods. This gun was going wasn't gonna help. Anyway, I ducked inside. It was early spring. Everything was leaked out. And anyway, what I heard this. Sound? I went inside the treeline this, you know, to see if I could see it, you know, case as it was coming my way, I wanted to be ready for it. And there was a draw went down or up on the other side and.

"And that's because it was in another state now, obviously maps in that area have the region on the other side of the state line, but it was fun for the movie scene. So there's four cities in the quad cities area to are on Iowa tour in Illinois, the Mississippi River, splits it, like I lived in drove across the bridge went into Iowa. And I worked in Davenport, Iowa, which is the biggest of the four cities. And I mean, look is like the movie vacation with the old lady rusts, Mississippi everyday. So I I lived in the like rent controlled loss down by the water. And they're at every entrance to the bridge is a riverboat. So there's four entrances right on each side of the river in each city. And there's four riverboats I believe I remember correctly and some of them pretty dingy not gonna lie like literally walk to a riverboat, and they had dollar happy hour and dollar drinks in the casino was pretty Danja. But it was a nice time. And you know, a lot of friends we'd go down. There and pre-game stuff like that. Because you know. So I don't know if I was about a sandwich from the casino entrance. Let's put it that way. That that very believable. We're talking about de que. I don't know if you watch the show Ozark on digs. Yep. But now, I'm starting to think was this entire thing.

"I'm going over to the coast guard headquarters down there in New Orleans, which is their district. They are responsible for not only in the Mississippi River, they're not they they do stuff in the Mississippi River, the port of New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexico, and they have a lot of port of New Orleans the big shipping center, and there's a lot of oil pipelines. So they do a lot of stuff they have they have a giant mission down the coast guard. Does they do search and rescue, obviously? But they do a lot of pipeline security. They do a lot of drug interdictions sub save a really important vision down on the Gulf, and I'm talking with coast guard. Oh, six tomorrow to kinda get a feel for what their mission is. And then hopefully in the future, you know, go be go be able to go down there and spend some more time with them. And really get a sense of you know, what what exactly they do. That's kind of. Go ahead. I know sorry could use finish fan. As like that's how I kinda got started with the national guard. It was just like, I know nothing. I wanna know everything. Let me come. So I'm hoping to use that approach with the coastguard. And just be like, hey, I think, you know, from the little I knew I think this is a vital mission to national security, and I wanted to everything about it. And I think there's the potential for some really cool stories to come out of there, which by the way, we'll get an update on that national guard story in a little bit. That's what we spoke about last time you were on. But I was just wondering this is fascinating subject. But to be honest that I have never really thought about before. Was there anything that just sparked your curiosity to dive deeper into this? So I grew up in Florida on a bear island. So I've grown up around like merits. Hi, I'm stuff. I should. I should probably articulate better. But maritime. You know, how it is your super casual people? Man. I gotta say I was listening to that to four twenty with Alex yesterday, which was ads casual is it got I feel like every time I talked with Alex like I do try to bring it back to an actual subject. But it ends up being like he says something side tangent Romy side tangent, Alex than we get onto completely different topic. And I'm like what we were talking about again. Oh, yeah. But no vacuuming. I appreciate it. But yes, so so just growing up in Florida. What sparked your interests? Yeah. One of the first books I ever read was the perfect storm by bashing younger, and he's one of my favorite authors. And I end the perfect storms one of an amazing book. So like two years ago, I was looking for a nonfiction book to read and I picked up another one called into the raging sea by Rachel sleigh about the sinking of the SSL farro. It was a US flag vessel cargo ship steaming from Jacksonville to San Juan Puerto Rico, and they went down and hurricane Joaquin. And this was two thousand fifteen that they went down. Down. So it's pretty recent. And she really dug deep in a y the ship sank about the maritime industry, and I just got super interested in just became a super maritime mirrored in the more. I learned the why realize how important it was. And you know, I I was hoping that the some of the readers would find it as fascinating as I do. I think from were, you know, for my foxhole looking at the the numbers at the pieces about maritime suffer getting I think that it's definitely something that people are interested in in our as a journalist news rep, you know, because we're fortunate to have that. We have the subscribers. I definitely want to deliver stories and content to them that they're gonna Joe by you know, and I don't feel like I got the freedom to do that. And you know, it's nice that the the readers are able to give so much like a medium feedback. And you know, it's not just internet..
