Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG
"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

"Indian country. The proportion of households with high speed internet access has consistently lagged behind the rest of the us.

The GOAT debate: Patrick Mahomes is coming for Tom Brady's throne
"Tom Brady is the goat. But Could Patrick Mahomes be the next goat? When Joe Montana was ago? No one was saying all he'll be the goat till Tom Brady takes the throne from him, which is The way I saw the passing of the torch go on, But Montana was already retired. Patrick Mahomes is playing at the same time. Tom Brady is And if he keeps win tomorrow, I know championships aren't everything. There's a lot that goes into evaluating the quarterback championship is a part of it. A big part of it, but it's not the whole thing or the only thing. Mahomes Wind That would mean Brady is stuck in a tough place to be stuck stuck at six Super Bowl championships. Mahomes wins tomorrow. He gets his second So he would be only four away from Tom Brady. Going forward and we don't know how many more years Brady is going to play. A Brady is going to get another one, but Mahomes would get within four. If Brady wins tomorrow, he goes to seven championships. And Patrick Mahomes would be stuck. On one That's six championships difference between the two That makes the passing of the torch less likely, surely not impossible, but more possible If Mahomes finds a way to help his chiefs when a game tomorrow, and that's the way I'm leaning, I was leaning that way from the time we knew the matchup was coming in. I think it's going to be a real competitive game. I think it's going to be a high scoring game, even though the number has come down. Of 55 a half It wasn't 57 a half came down pretty quickly. Some pretty good money, I guess came in on the under because they think the oddsmakers said it too big to begin with came down to 56. Pretty darn quickly and today I'm seeing it 55 a half Oh, I think they're going to combine for 60 points. That is one of the place. I'll give you when I run through some of my props because some places let you actually move the under over line. And if you move it the right way you can either get use. You can Hey, let's pay more to just get it into a place where you feel more comfortable. Oh, I think there's gonna be point scored. I think both court quarterbacks and coaches. They're just gonna let it rip. So I think we're looking at the game. One of the two teams are gonna be in the thirties, and the other one is gonna be damn close to it. So I think 55 a half is an easy

Experience Traveling By Train
"Start today's travel. With rick steves. With other. Eric wanner he recommends seeing the usa from a long distance train. Ride on amtrak. Our interview with eric was recorded just before the covid shutdowns kicked in when we travel. It's fun to see the world from a different perspective eric. Winer believes travel by train offers a rare combination of expansiveness and coziness. He spent a lot of time travelling by train while reading the work of great philosophers and for him. It goes together beautifully. He writes about that in his latest book. The socrates express eric. Thanks for joining us. Happy to be here so you actually took the train from washington dc to portland that sixty four hours. You could have flown in about five hours. There's just nothing rational about that. No it makes no sense. It makes no sense from a time point of view. Obviously it makes no sense from a financial point of view It really doesn't make sense from a mental health point of view. Either but i loved it. What can i say. I love every every minute of every hour of you know. It wasn't always. It's not the most glamorous way to travel but this just something to something awfully compelling about you made a very good case of that first of all you talked about the people you should the platform with. I mean okay. You're standing on the platform with surrounded by twenty or thirty people waiting to get onto that Train who are they okay. I'm going to do this quickly. Therefore determined therefore categories of long distance amtrak travelers. Okay number. One is retired people with lots of time on their hands. Number two is people who are afraid of flying. These are my compatriots to They take the train a number three or foam irs a fomer is a real enthusiasts. Who gets very excited about. Locomotives and other things like that means. They're so excited. They foam at the mouth. That's the idea okay You care to take a guess with the fourth category. As you'll never guess mennonites mennonites lots of minute nights a matter night. You mean like Lou dates are people that don't want modern. Well they apparently they They can fly but they can travel by train long distances. So these are the four categories and then there was me and i don't fit any of those categories. I was a category into myself for your kind of the opposite. Because you mentioned you have criminal phobia which is A fear of lack of time. And and you do just the opposite. It's that some kind of therapy. It was it was sort of this. What are you desensitize yourself to it. Well i always feel that your time is valuable. And i need to be making the best use of it and when you're on the train for some sixty plus hours you're just you're forced to slow down. I mean you're either go crazy or you slow down. Those two choices and i decided to slow down. The train is going to get the portland at its own pace. And there's nothing you can do about it. It will stop occasionally for an hour to for no apparent reason whatsoever and then start up again for no apparent reason and i would ask my fellow passengers if we stopped and they've just laugh at me like We got a new one. We gotta a rookie. Here in amtrak stan. You do not ask why. He thinks he's human. Beings are more important than freight right. We do we. We wait for free trains. Because amtrak does not own most of the tracks across the country the free traits everytime i go to portland derek from seattle and the train. I think i'm doing something nice for the environment. And so on. Or it's just kind of a cool thing to do and it's frustrating. Because i have chronic phobia also and i don't know beiber waiting here and somebody reminded me freight trains get priority over humans in the united states. That's not the case in europe but in the united states. That's the case but for those of us who like you and me have a fear of lack of time where where we schedule things. Its pedal to the metal. It's interesting how a long trip on a train you mentioned. It was like you hit a mother of time. Suddenly you had this big gift. That i guess you got more time just by slowing down right. And it's it's forced right because you can't go off and say we're going to go into into town and in fire up the laptop and get some work done. I mean you're on the train and you stay on the train and it's got through. I went through an interesting cycle. I i thought oh this is great. I've got this time. This is really good. I should do something. And then i just get antsy. And i started rearranging my little room at and moving things around and i started to go a little bonkers. I needed to do something. And eventually i came to acceptance that that he was gonna take a really long time to get to portland and i needed to just go with the flow and It took me a. I think somewhere around montana. I hit acceptance in there.
Mario Draghi Is Asked to Form Government in Italy
"We begin. Today in italy where mario draghi. The former chief of the european central bank has been invited by at least president cemetery to form a unity government following the collapse of the coalition talks among italy's political parties late last night in rome. The political tumult in italy was sparked by the resignation of his prime minister. Giuseppe comtesse last week and a little earlier today. A europe editor at large at stalker gave us this. Rundown of how events unfolded in rome after those coalition talks broke down yesterday evening now after that happened the president mattino della addressed tv cameras and said basically. There were two options. One would be go to early elections. That would be two years early. Because i not scheduled till twenty twenty three or he could cool together at this technocrat government. Basically an institutional government made up of known politicians. Now the reason. He said he's going to do. This is because italy is really into difficult situation. There's a health crisis and economic crisis financial crisis he. He basically listed a host of reasons. Why it would be a bad decision to call early. Elections the fact that the government wouldn't be executing its food functions during campaigning. The fact that everyone would be out on the streets trying to win votes at stockholm articles. Europe editor at large speaking to us from milan a little earlier today at kiara as described italy's president has effectively removed the politics from italy's government by instituting the so-called technocratic government. How remarkable to give a bit of a longer view on this or a move. Is this in the recent history of italian politics. and what do you foresee the political implications. I suppose of this move might be in italy in the months to come well thomas. I think it's an interesting way to put it. That president material has removed the politics from this because yes he is proposing technocrat but i think his decision is very shrewd political. Move actually You know we've talked on a monocle minute about the importance of the role of montana. And all of this you know. We focused a lot about squabbles between different parties and former prime ministers and future prime ministers. And what's going to be but actually at centro vitale is president. La la la who has made a very very intelligent move in completely. You know upending. Everybody's expectations and bringing mario draghi to the table. This is a name that a lot of parties will find difficult to say no to but that certain parties will feel almost impossible to approve and in order to understand that you have to know a little bit about the background of the last ten years of italian. Politics really is a long game. The relevance of this moment actually goes back almost a decade and it goes back to. Mario monti's government in twenty eleven ha de italian history of technocratic governments and how relation feels about them. It goes back to the fact that it's virtually the rise of the technocratic government supported by establishment. Parties sent left center right to the essentially boyd. The extreme success of movements like moving five stars the moon five stars was born out of dissatisfaction with the establishment and establishment is the pd. The establishment is better screenings party and is the technocrats the people coming from europe who are immediately resonate with this idea of steady and finance and banks. Which doesn't actually go down very well done throat of italians that were really really badly scarred by the financial crisis i think when you look at the last decade of italian politics you look at a real series of governments to have an lasted very long and remote qabli. A lot of them governments that were directly elected by the people. You know we've had technocratic governments we've had really you know we've had coalition governments where you know the majority of was really really tight whack. Coalition talks went on for ages. We've had internal betrayals and you know people come to the fore. Even though they hadn't really been selected by a popular vote. So i think what this might do for the overall mood of of the population is bring back all those feelings off just simply not really having a political choice in all of this and may actually give more fire to all of these populist parties that made their fortune out of the situation like this in the past and if we do come to early elections which has not yet. A possibility is completely off the cards. It may actually paying favor in on those populist parties which we saw in coalition government a couple of years ago three years ago. Now but that never expressed a proper. I guess prime minister political prime minister. Let's remember that the content much as we think about it now as appropriate political figure he was also a lawyer by profession. He was chosen by the moving five stars as a relatively neutral name. That would put together a coalition between moving and lega. But we haven't really had a party leader as prime minister in quite a long
Mahomes the rare quarterback with no weakness
"For the back on stage. Again for mahomes. It's quite a feat to be this good at this age. One imams teammate. Slave bell has only been with the chiefs a couple months clearly though. He's seen enough to determine that. Patrick mahomes could very well the the greatest player ever take a listen a great thing. More petty is. I never played these his first year. What are you gonna like popular. I think i was sitting out now. So i never played against bad but always of always washed on. I'm always thought he was like a great player. Then i came here. And then when i came here. That's when i really hit me like off like he might be the greatest player ever because the way practice. You know High goes about his business. People see the throws and things that have that he does in the game if things kind of like. I don't know there's like an accident but it's not he practices. It's so much like i wish. Obviously early practice unbelievable but my idea of thought. He's a ten before i came here now. These probably go twelve former offer running back. Brian west for joining us now brian. Good morning to you. Let me start with this. Eating people are rushing to crown. Patrick mahomes the next goat morning and you know this is going to be unpopular comment because i know we have the number one. She's saying in the world in nick right here but we are absolutely rushing to crown patch homes way too early but i understand why i understand. Why because he's had a great start to his career one of the best ever. We see the arm talent. We see all the special throws. But i want to remind you guys. Three guys bridge star drew brees and aaron rodgers. Three guys that have a combined three super bowls. Each one of those guys went to one and one thing that we want to talk about. Is that after. Each one of those guys won the super bowl. Everyone was saying they're going to be the next goat. They are the greatest of all time. They're going to go on a run. They're going to win. Multiple super bowls over and over and over. Brett farve actually made it to super bowl the next year in lost and that one so i think we have to be patient as far as how far we push these guys to saying that. They're the dote pack them host. Who has a long way to go and just to show that. I'm going to give you my top number one. Obviously tom brady ten super bowls being able to make the super bowl playing in his forties. That's amazing number. Two joe montana. Four for four in the super bowls they also achieved the rare feat of winning three in a row nineteen ninety there in the nfc championship game. He gets out by leonard. Marshall they won the super bowl that they would have won that game and then number for three. We talk about peyton manning. Mvp trophies and so we know how special peyton manning wasn't what he meant to our game. So i think we have to understand how much further patch mahomes has to go. But we have mentioned this as well if hashem aho's wins two more meaning this one and another one and then he goes on to shatter all of the passing and td record at that point. He enters the room with the conversation of the greatest of all time. At that point he inches that room. And then we say okay. Maybe it's not just about the super bowls. Maybe now we can look at the armed town. We can look at the mobility all the other things around. Just than just winning super bowls at that point when i look at it.
Navigating These Troubled Times with Mary DeMuth
"Well hey there my friends. I am just so honored that you chose to tune in to the podcast today. One of my favorite things about this format is that we get to talk about important topics with people who have a lot of wisdom and today is no exception in fact. I'll tell you what. I've really been looking forward to talking to mary booth because she has insight into some of the hot topics that that honestly it's hard to have conversations around and today we're gonna talk about the importance of prayer and living biblically knowing the word of god so that it shapes our lives but then we navigate the emotionally charged often deeply divided world in which we live even in the church. I love it when god brings people across your path that you've admired from a distance but you get to meet in person and you think oh my word. They're even cooler than i thought. And mary demuth you or one of those people i just so appreciate your heart for jesus your generosity to people in your willingness to speak truth god's truth when sometimes it's difficult to here and We're going to be kind of delving into that but we're also going to be talking about your new book. Pray every day. But there's so many things i can't wait to talk to you about mary. Demuth welcome to the living room. Hey it is great to be in your living room in its cozy here. I love it. I love it your cyber living room exactly kind of a virtual living room where you located at mary. I'm in north texas near dallas awesome awesome. And i'm so we're just almost next door neighbors. I'm in. i'm just above you in montana. So several thousand miles away down the lane. That's right that's right will marry has just has had a voice in the christian women Round for so many years author of forty two books and her newest one is pray every day. which is i. Am i right to assume that that kind of came out of the your podcast. It did exactly I my podcast is almost three years old now and it's a very simple format. I read scripture. And then i pray it's about five minutes long And what prairie day is is one of the things i wanted to do is explore the actual prayers of the bible and This is a ninety day devotional. There's a little more than ninety prayers in the bible. Not much more. And so it was really fun to add. Never really seen that explored before says really fun to explore. What are the verse of the bible. And then what does that mean for me. And how do. I move forward in prayer. And what do i. What can i learn about prayer every single day for ninety days. That may change my prayer life. That's so beautiful it's a. It's a lovely book in so approachable. What do you think you know as you spent that time looking at the of the bible. What were some of the main things you learned about prayer. Well i think there's so many different types of prayers and one of the ones that i really appreciate is the lament psalms These are prayers of lament and they go through a very specific format And the fun thing about in a lament psalms it starts with y y y all this bad stuff happening and then it ends with reminding ourselves of the goodness of god. And that's been a really nice pattern for me to follow particularly when the world fell apart We can lament their scriptural foundation for doing that. It's okay to say. I don't understand it's okay to say where are you got. This is all part of the prayer life that we can have. That's so beautiful. You really do love that about the lord that he doesn't ask us to tidy up our prayers before we come but to pour out our hearts. And i i think sometimes we're afraid to be honest about where we're at why. Why do you think that is well logically. It doesn't make any sense. Because if god is omniscient he already knows and so why would we try to hide it from him. It's not gonna work. But i think we don't do it because we're afraid and i also think we don't really understand the relational aspect of god prayer is not a transactional thing. It's actually a relational thing. And so god is always pursuing us in relationship and when we pray were simply having a conversation with him and when we don't pray then we are not having a conversation with him so it's important that we just. He knows it all ready. And we're not gonna take them by surprise by telling them. This really hurts. This is confusing to me and the reason that we do it and the reason god wants us to do it is that he wants to be with us in relationship when we are going through stress and trauma. Yeah i and. I think that's a thing that we forget is is that he really is god with us and for me. You know god's just kind of doing something new in my prayer life that. I've actually been praying for years and it's that that it would become more real and more vibrant in one of the simple little things that has changed. Prayer from me is to consciously come into his presence you know. Sometimes i just pull out my prayer. I do my prayer. I do everything. I read my bible and then you know god bless dinner and all of that and i don't really realize the privilege that i've been given and we've been given to come into the very throne room of heaven. How has praying every day. Change that aspect for you. I think it's been more of even though god is holy holy holy and i i remember him such. There's a a deeper camaraderie. That comes the more i prayer. Pray and the more. I understand that this is real and like you said just imagining it or thinking of it is. This is a privilege and this is real. And i'm in god's presence right now and he has that word with is really powerful. We just jumped off of a season of Of christmas and advent and that word whisk emmanuel god with us is such a powerful word. And i think we lost a little bit of that. It's not about us trying to perform christian louis. It's about us being disciple by jesus.

"To get to the other side of whatever. So we get out of our kayaks takes two of US move one Kayak, and we're barefoot and the rocks are so sharp and we get out and we're taking her across the rocks and we get to the other side and the current is going back the direction we came from like we both stood there and we were like wait a second. That's the way we just came from there to both of us. It looked like that was not the right direction. And that the right direction was of the current, our friend Rebecca was GONNA pick us up at this like drop off point the direction we thought we were going there's no cell reception where stuck out here on rocks no bear spray and not a single person in sight I don't know what to do. We can't go back to lake McDonald Rebecca won't to get us there. We don't have cell reception like what are we gonNa do and here's like art maybe we have maybe there's just like this one section of. The river where the rapids change direction and we just gotTa get past it and they'll go. They'll go the right way and I was like that makes no sense and she's like I know. But that's the direction we're supposed to go and I was like I know. So we try to pull our kayaks through the going upstream wasn't happening and we were so scared we're GONNA get attacked by bear because we're no one insight and I was like, okay, we gotta just go with the current like I know it. Doesn't make sense and I know it seems like that's the wrong direction and I know we just came from there, but we don't have another option. So we got our Kayak and just floated with the current or whatever. We got like five minutes down and we were like, okay, like, yeah, this looks different but thus makes no sense because we just came from here we in the Bermuda Triangle fucked with our sense of direction. So hard and I don't is we still both were like I don't understand how that happened. We'll explain to you. Yeah. Okay. So like not all rivers flow directly down sometimes rivers float down stream will then they run into a hill and then so then the water is diverted around the hill. So then all of a sudden, it's going the opposite way to go back around back down it because that's what happened. It switch back. It was nuts cares tonight you're both really get a directions or built very outdoorsy like we're not stupid and we felt so dumb standing there like nothing made sense to us and it was so scary. So feel like you're alone in the wilderness but anyway, well, I'm glad I'm. Glad he didn't die me too. So if you guys go to Glacier National Park and you wanna fly I, highly recommend this it was by far favorite thing we did the whole trip. You'RE GONNA float from Lake McDonald blankenship bridge. That was the route we did. It was awesome and I would highly recommend it. But just beware of the fricken Bermuda Triangle of glacier national park because it is insane for everyone out there if you're kayaking or Whitewater rafting or canoeing, just continue going the way the water is going because avenge on it's going to go the way that you want it to go, which is the only way it can go, which is down hell. Anything else happened in Montana that was of note. And then after we did that, we every everybody's top recommendation was driving the going to the sun road. Have you ever heard of that? So it's a road that goes from the west side of glacier to the east side and part of it like we couldn't go all the way because the side was closed for some reason but it was awesome like it was so cool and our jeep to but it was basically you get to drive all the way to the very top of the highest point of that road is called Logan's pass. So we did this dry we stopped along. The Way and took photos like the views are incredible. If you have longer than we had, you can stop and hike along the way, but we just absolutely loved it, and then there's a hike at the very top that we did. It was the hike to hidden lake, which I would also highly recommend, and then we just came back down and spent the last night under canvas and then headed back. Cool. But I'm happy for you and that's really awesome. For me I haven't done anything. So I've been watching on TV and boy Oh boy, do I have some suggestions for you motherfuckers out there won't Sierra got a couple of reality TV, shows that I think a lot of people. Yes. And, listen I'm I'm actually a little late on this, but I'm going to go ahead and say something that might be controversial but I think that this might be the greatest reality TV show. Ever made. Quite, the statement it is considering I'm on a different one and I probably should be saying that that's the best one but no way no how no Sir have you heard of love on the spectrum All my God brandy, it's so amazing. It's a reality TV dating show where everyone on the show is on the autism spectrum and they all want to start dating and find love it is so funny. So heartwarming. So entertaining, all the characters are different and fantastic in their own way you'll have you'll cry. You'll find out things about yourself did. No, it's amazing and the thing about how people that are on the autism spectrum that I really liked learning about was there. So honest with each other because they have a hard time like picking up on social cues and stuff there is no bullshit with them. There is no pretense we lie to each other a lot to like save people from feeling bad. You know if you're not worried about making someone feel bad or you know. Something that like it doesn't really compete with you you're always being so honest and when it comes to dating and matters of the heart, it's probably the way you should be because things can get drawn out for so much longer because you're so nervous about hurting someone's feelings and all these people on this show are just so blatantly honest that they're able to move through relationships that they know aren't going to work for them. It's amazing. They all have things that there's a hard. No. For. Does that make sense who swung in non-negotiable? Yes. This one guy mark who I love. The best smile. He's so funny. He's so chill he fucking loves dinosaurs. He's all about fucking dinosaurs in paleontology at every date he he takes people on is to the museum because he wants to tell us about fucking dinosaur and let let me tell you my boy mark. No some shit about dinosaurs are right he's throwing knowledge out left and right and all the girls during the day. So they are. Like. He does like a little intimidating and so the producers like would you date someone who doesn't like dinosaurs? nope. Hard pass absolutely not and I was like Oh shit mark because you know what? I don't know if I have those field. I turn a Sarah. Do you have any like non-negotiables with dating and she's like, no, you can kinda like tolerate anything. Yeah I. Know It's so weird but you should have some things of hard pass Oh you don't like Gulf you're Outta here you know we should be more like this. It's just the show is so good I'm telling you I. Think you would like it too because you like reality. TV and it's like all there's so many could characters you're like I just want you to find the person I know so anyways. been talking about it. So I'm a little late on it, but like if you haven't heard of this or seen it, go watch it so good. Okay. So that was the best reality TV show that I've ever ever seen in my entire life now to the worst now, let's pivot to the worst. I'm GonNa tell you this Gel is not called your least favorite thing. Well, no but so but so here's I think Sarah loves it I hate it. But I think you know it's like almost like a hate fucking you know. You're doing it like inspite. Have you heard of selling sunset? Yes. Okay. It's so bad now Woah have you seen it now? I haven't people rave about it. My fiance. saw. The guy from the hills created I think, and it's like the most hills e thing in the world the premise is, is like these two short really short brothers owner real estate agency in obviously Hollywood their entire stable of real estate agents and brokers are all just smoking hot checks. That's all it is. It's the fucking hooters of real estate. And it is smart I'm sure that the women that are working there are completely competent with their work and like they're making, you see the. You like fuck dude I need some tich ended a platinum blonde this hair and lengthened. My legs and I didn't go make this crazy amount of commission because these chicks selling like like thirty million dollar houses and making bank on right Oh. Yeah. Totally. There's also the hills like everyone fucking hate each other and then it's everyone just a bitch to one another, which is actually quite interesting and funny here's my thing. Our guys just that stupid. Yes. I. Think what annoys me about this show is not that it's a bunch of hot chick selling real estate. It's that.

How is it and maybe it's happened and we just don't know about it. How is it with somebody that is so has such a Boli tendency, and then on top that is so limited intelligence wise. How is it that somebody like trump being in his many big meetings in new? York over his many years professional years. How is it that he didn't get his ass kicked in several times. Let alone once. How is it that? In New York didn't come over a boardroom table and beat the living crap out of him at some point. You know. Maybe he suffered, and then we think. Give him credit for. Tommy. Tommy people that live to take on the tough guy in New, York. I mean you're gonNA. Tell me that somebody you know. The D- got bullied in in a meeting or looked at this dude and realized what a despicable human being is didn't go. Across the table after after you call him a name. I just can't believe that that didn't happen, but we have it at this point. Yeah I would think so. I would think so. It is surprising that this guy has hasn't gotten beaten up. Right but maybe. Unless he's walked into every meeting with security people. That may be true, but still I know a lot of dudes. The cared about that they would've. They would've gotten to him. Somehow someway. I saw him a Yankee, stadium, when I was covering a playoff, he was sitting in the box plexiglass, separating us right next to me. He didn't have any security around them. I mean. Tom There are people I know that just cheating in golf. Those stories are legendary with this guy. WHAT A serial cheater! He is in the game of golf. You know if there was any real money involved in any of these matches. It's amazing. He didn't get his ass kicked after one of those I don't know. What was your so biden versus trump fistfight odds I don't know, but that would be I mean. This would go hand-in-hand with your September October. October tumultuous you know, run up to the election period which you know I don't disagree with I. Think we could be headed for a lot of that in the fall. I just think anything is possible. Yeah. Anything is as possible. It's funny how? He just you know. I don't WanNa. Go there. I don't WanNa go there. It's surprising to me that as much as he mouths off on twitter.

"Would be I mean I. Know it's hard enough to get people to go to the game. You're down. You're down to the core group. Of redskins fan now and these are the people that love the teeth and love the name. Your and they don't and you're saying that name. You're going to drive them away. And then nobody's coming to the game and there's no way the NFL was going to force her to do that. They're not gonNA force an owner, so make a move that's gonNa cost him money and cost them money. Yes it's so. I forget if I talked about this on the podcast and radio the other day, but you and I talked about Thursday doing this and we never got to it, but. I don't. I always known that I just remind me because I want to go back to George Preston Marshall, bobby, Mitchell, after this, but I I am. I've always laughed at those people who suggested that this would have been some sort of financial boon to change the name over the years. They don't know anything. About brand and an and brand loyalty, I mean you don't see fiercely loyal customer bases. To brands you don't see. Those brands changed significant parts of their brand names logos, mascots. Whatever when you do that, you really Risk Valuation Hits You Risk Your Business. It you've been talking about millions verses potentially billions evaluation millions in in short term short term gain for buying New Jersey's and buying the new stuff versus a big valuation hit now with that said the redskins reached a new rock bottom at the end of last year. That you know even we couldn't Zena -sarily I mean ten thousand people in in a seventy five thousand. Thousand seat stadium where half the people. There aren't even rooting for for their home team. There was a level of disgust with this organization from most people. There's a percentage of you. Trust me, Tommy and I know this you are. You've never been off put by anything that they've done. And you never will, and you are very much in the minority of the fan base, and you see that by the deterioration deterioration of the crowds and the television numbers I. Mean they've completely you know sunk to to new low level so. I actually I think I mentioned this on radio the other day for the first time in terms of how much it would cost them to change everything about the name and the brand, etc, they're probably at a point in which it makes more. It makes more sense now than ever before Tommy because they have sunk the value of the brand. I know what Forbes says they're worth. You know informed says they're worth that because if you got a new owner in here and they did things in a different way in a market like ours, that is huge with a football. You know interest like we have here in D. C. You could turn it around very quickly you know, and and all the sudden be worth three four billion dollars, and by the way those values are basically. it's it's essentially a guess as to what someone would be willing to pay it. They don't. The redskins have lost a lot of top line revenue the last couple of years, but they're in a league that benefits every single one of the teams, because they share equally thirty two teams divided by the the money divided by thirty two teams. Anyway, it's a long way. Way of getting to if they ever felt the pressure to do it, and they actually considered it. This would probably be the time to do it because they're at such an all time. Low with respect to the the customer base. They've lost so many customers Tommy because of who they are and what they've done on the field, and how they've conducted themselves off the field. That the fiercely loyal customer base that I used to refer to which is one of the reasons that the brand is valued at where it is. The Lot of those people have checked out for good. They've checked out for good. And now you may be trying to attract a whole new audience, and let's be honest about this of all a younger audience. That's very progressive. That probably isn't even considering your team. Because of the name regardless of what the what the true facts are about this, what whether or not native Americans have a problem with it or don't have a problem with it. The perception the narrative is that it's the N. Word, which of course we know it isn't and in this climate. They may have a chance of getting in gaining. Customers if they changed the name I again, I'm trying to shorten this up in a minute. Shorten it up now. If they ever going to do it, now's probably by far and away the biggest opportunity that they they would have to do it with the with the lowest downside to doing it. I don't know I look. Recommend knowing and I know young people aren't going NFL game periods. So high, don't nobody's watching rally either. But but I don't see this groundswell of young people off saying Oh now they've finally changed the name now I'm GonNa go. They're not going to NFL game, says it is.

Well, well, for one reason. We've talked about this and you were right about this a couple years ago. I thought that and I lost. I lost the betsy on this that the name was going to change. They had the Oneida nation to Sinoe boss Ray. halladay brighter cowbridge. She's very high. And he had a lot of money and a lot of corporate influence and I thought well. This is the guy that that that movement needs to get behind it in order to force the NFL force. The redskins saints name. While the the poll that came out and thousand sixteen in the Washington Post. where show that nine out of ten native Americans weren't offended by the name, the same exact result from the anniversary poll eleven twelve years earlier that killed. That tells the the momentum that they had going, and then I was became convinced that that's the name is not just not going to be changed, and now you know getting swept up in the black lives matter movement. The name has been has been brought into that and it's there's a revival of the movement to change the name, but you have talked about this and I agree with you is the financial damage to dance.

And he and I had this long conversation, because he's working with a company that spans in his working on a scanner to scan for Covid, nineteen something that would be put at every single stadium and arena, but anyway to make a long story short one of the things he said to me is they're basically all going into this? hoping they don't have. They can't possibly predict what will happen. They're hoping baseball basketball is the NHL is to get through this season, so then get their money from the TV networks without somebody adding seriously ill, but the first time somebody gets seriously ill, or these games are so compromised because of the loss of players dude due to positive tests. it's Right now, especially, in the more and more, we get closer to this thing, and as the positive tests keep going up nationwide in spots that you thought weren't going to be hot spots in the warm weather was gonna take care of all this and we're seeing all the increased infections, and a lot of that is probably because of the increase testing. You know I'm not suggesting that it isn't clemson tested twenty-three pop players the other day. Positive Texas the. How are they possibly right now? Going to get to a football season where they're going to have enough players that aren't in quarantine to play games. I don't know, Kevin. I don't know how they're going to do it. I mean I'm very skeptical of their ability to be able to do it. And it's and you know we can argue and like. You pointed out some of the rise in the corona virus numbers are certainly related to war testing. You know that's obvious. But? It's the fear factor as well. The reality is is is is.

Yeah basically what it looks like the Union has done. Is Trading Labor peace? A better deal for postseason money. more money on the table now. For the chance. To file a grievance. Where they be arguing that the owners did not go sheet in good faith, and they're convinced that they'll win and get I. Don't know five hundred million or more. Out of an award like that. I mean it really does it seem for a partner and you know they're. They've tried to be partners over the years. It's really city when you think about it for a partner to strategy is to say why can make a lot more money doing this? And and basically destroyed a product at the same time. You're talking about the players. Yeah yeah the players so on Saturday. I did a podcast on Saturday and one of the things in preparation for the podcast was there wasn't a deal done in. It looked like you know. The owners were stuck on sixty games in the players wanted seventy and I was like wow, I mean. Is this thing really knocking to get done because at ten games, and it's going to force the owners to impose their situation and night I went back in I didn't I'm not going to tell you that I read the whole March twenty sixth agreement, but I read this section of the March twenty sixth agreement that has been. The crux of the issue for the last three months on March twenty sixth, there was an agreement between the players and the owners on the parameters of a season that at that point was very likely going to not only be delayed but shortened. And the deal was for the owners to pay the players their full salaries on a pro rata basis, so there was one stipulation to the deal. It was a separate section of the agreement, and it said essentially for the Games to resume the commissioner's. Office and Union would discuss in good faith. The economic feasibility of playing games in the absence of spectators, or if games had to be played at substitute neutral sites that sections right there in the agreement that the owners and the players would sit back down, negotiate in good faith in the event that thirty to thirty five percent of their revenue stream, was gone because of no spectators in no homesites, etc, but really no spectators. And so for whatever reason I can't figure it out for whatever reason the players believed that that section didn't have anything to do with them. Taking a reduced salary in the event of no spectators and the owners of course feel that that's exactly what that section was. Put in there for that in the event. By the time we get to play if we can't generate thirty to thirty five percent of our normal revenue, because we can't get live spectators into the stadium. Well, then we're going to sit down and we're going to figure something out and you're gonNA. Participate in the downside of all of that. Look the owners if it came down five games, and they met in the middle at sixty five games. It's peanuts. Up the players the same thing. I'm sorry. The owners came up to sixty five games, and if the players went down to sixty five games, but I'll be honest with you. I can't imagine how any player would read that section and not think they were referring to payroll. The single biggest cost against one of the biggest revenue sources I don't get that, but the suit. Has Been about since day one. This, the the players thinking made enough to give up anything they had an agreement and the owner saying yeah, but we had this section that said if we didn't have spectators, we would sit down and work a different deal out because we're going to miss. Be Missing thirty to thirty five percent of our revenue. I blame both of them. Though Tommy is the math on the owners coming coming up to sixty five games works out to about four point two million dollars per team. That's nothing. I know I. Look I mean it's a shared blame and.

"Never been to. Montana! I've been to Montana a few times, but the first time I went to Montana I think I've told you about this trip, my. Twenty one junior year college summer, my Buddy Mike and I basically did this drive away service. Where we drove a family that had moved from DC to actually northern California. We drove their car. They paid for all the gas and the idea was back. Then even if they have these things anymore where you drive their car out for them, and they told us before we took it. Take as much time as you want. And we did and one of the we spent a I'll never never forget this, so yellowstone park is Wyoming and then I guess it would be southwest. Montana basically is yellowstone I'd have to look at a map to see exactly, but I remember we were in. We drove all night from wherever we words. It's like. We're already a few days into the trip minimum and We pulled the car over in Yellowstone Park. And fell asleep. It was in June. We woke up the next morning shivering as our car Wisconsin with snow. This is in June and there are. There are mule deer, which are the big huge, dear walking around the car. I mean big animals walking around the car and we're like Holy Shit. Around here, we're out here in it now. I'm pulling up a map to see if I have that right. I'm pretty sure. Yellowstone is mostly in Wyoming, but a sliver of it is in if it's in Wyoming, which is south. Montana it would be North West Wyoming and southwest Montana. Why can't I find a map of yellowstone? Anyway I think that's IT I. May have that wrong. Where most of its in Montana, in just a sliver of it is in Wyoming, but I think I have that right? I think I. Have that right could be wrong. Anyway I can't find oh here it is. I'm right. I'm A. I'm right. Here is Yellowstone National Park looks like it's mostly in Wyoming and yes, there's a sliver of it in Montana. And somehow we were in the Montana portion of the park, and that was the first time in Montana Tommy that trip we were on our way. We'd made our way from rapid city South Dakota where we spent a few days because there was a great dog track. Track in rapid city, so we were there, and then we were in yellowstone in the next stop for us was Tahoe because we had to go to Tahoe. Where a buddy of ours hit his sister lived in truckee. California which is part of Lake Tahoe, and she was moving back to the east coast, and we had worked out that we're going to pick up her car, which was a Ford Escort I'll never forget it. We drove a Honda. A Honda accord out picked up her ford escort in Truckee California, and she said the same thing I'll pay for your gas and she gave us back then. You needed a gas card if you recall. And we had a gas card from her for the for that car, and then we had that car basically in we told her. If we take your car back, we may not be back until August and we weren't. We left in mid June. We were back in mid August. It was a two month trip. We spent a lot of time in northern California. My buddies uncle's place, which was in a rather beautiful location in. In that whole pebble beach area down there, but and then we spent probably a week to two weeks in southern California, but that was the first time I've got a mantra that was. That was a trip we were looking. Years ago, we were looking for the pictures of that trip and I think he's got him. I thought I had them in a box. But he must have them but Yeah, it was it was. It was a great trip that included a lot of gambling and then a forty eight hour. I think I've told you this before. A forty eight hour non stop trip. From L. A. TO DC. It was mid August we were done we. We're ready to get home. We were out of money. We had a gas card and maybe like fifty bucks, and we drove forty eight straight hours from La to DC forget. We left on a Friday at seven and arrived Sunday night ten o'clock East Coast time we to gas court. We had a gas card and we'd fifty bucks for some food along the way, and that was it. We took to our shifts, and we drove forty eight straight hours God's honest truth that you can make it from la DC and forty eight hours. that. Truckin Baby, oh. We were truck and. We were talking we'd had it. We'd been gone for a while at that point and we were ready to get home, plus we had no money, and basically the promise to our parents were that we wouldn't wire for money because they didn't really you know. They wanted my father wanted me working that summer. What do you mean you know? Get A job. No, we're GONNA try. We're going to see what happens with this thing it was it was it was it was a blast, but yes, there is. There's money in Montana brother. There's some real money in those places. That surprises me I didn't know that, and there's obviously a lot of you know. I mean real tough. Rural towns to that are probably really in trouble. Anyway? Well I like I like the series so far I wouldn't say it's a great series, but I liked it. I've been to Helena. That's the other place I've been to. Went there to I wanNA say with Smith's a supermarket chain. Back in the ninety s nice place to be from. Wouldn't be a great place to live in necessarily, but places like Bozeman. You know in a lot of those Ranch places in God. It's beautiful country out there I'll tell you what I mean. We're GONNA see what happens with our cities. You know because of covid nineteen in particular population density but a lot of those places probably seem pretty attractive to a lot of people right now. Probably.

Some of you will know what I'm talking about and Rick Springfield ended up becoming a significant figure on general hospital in the eighties. And then. Sing. My soap opera. Going to college was one life to live. Well one life. One life to live pre in college was when I was watching soap operas. All my children was on one one life to live was on a to in general hospital was on three. Yeah, I in college, I watched soap operas. I didn't watch all three of those general.

Don't know what year that was. I don't know I. Think it's still the highest rated daytime program. That isn't sports of all time. I i. think that's true. The daytime programs I would think you're right. I'm I'm going to look that up here because I am. Luke and Laura, General Hospital. All right from okay, so from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine and nineteen, eighty-eight General Hospital, had more viewers than any other daytime soap opera to the top of the ratings in the early eighties in part, thanks to the monumentally popular super couple super couple, Luke and Laura, who's nineteen eighty-one wedding brought in thirty million viewers in remains the highest rated our in American soap opera history. Now that's different from what? What I described, but maybe that's what I remember you know thirty million wouldn't be a super, but you know it well. First of all thirty, million's a lot for any daytime program including you know a big football game you know which probably assuming that football games are the highest rated day programming you know shows in television history bees. It's almo- almost everything's NFL anyway. In terms of the highest rated programs. But thirty thirty million viewers Tommy in Nineteen eighty-one for that wedding. That's amazing that I mean I think. Are there any real soap operas on network? TV? One I have no idea. I haven't I haven't watched a soap opera probably in thirty years certainly yet every bit of thirty years. I have no idea I would make. It looks like General. Hospital is still on the at least according to Wikipedia. It looks like it's still on. Why have have soap operas just gone away for what daytime?

"To no avail by early April. Three weeks. Into the tense standoff. The temperature was changing among the freemen. And they're out of state helpers at Cat Creek regardless of group affiliations. The men were beginning to form into two groups. The radicals and the moderates the radicals believed that now was the time to stage a fight against the feds. They saw it as a call to action for the overarching Christian Patriot movement with the potential to ignite a successful revolution against the US. Government the moderates on the other hand were more concerned about appearances. They didn't want the rest of America to see them as just another white. Supremacist Group or another Waco like Colt. They argue that in order for their cause to be taken seriously. It was important that they didn't behave like backwoods crazies ultimately the radicals ignored the moderates and began to form a plan. They wanted to rush into the compound to provide reinforcements to Skurdal and his clan. With this in mind. The radicals began outfitting their trucks with blades and battering rams like something out of Mad Max. They purposely plan their attack for April nineteenth anniversary of both Waco and the Oklahoma City bombing. They didn't care about aligning themselves with these tragedies. In fact they liked the idea. Maybe then the. Us government would take them seriously in the meantime civilian undercover operative Dale. Jakes had recovered from his health condition. That laid him up for most of the past winter. He was back at work. Infiltrating the freemen group on the outside of Justice Township. He quickly saw the divide between the radicals and the moderates and he was worried that if the radicals move forward with their attack all hell would break loose potentially wounding the innocent people inside justice township according to Dale when he told his FBI handlers about the upcoming April nineteenth attack. They shrugged him off. They didn't have any warrants against the man at Cat Creek in so astonishingly. They simply ignored the warning. It's possible the real reason the FBI chose to brush. Dale off was because they still refuse to involve themselves in a gunfight. In order to make a move they would have to wait until the cat creek. Radicals tried to break into justice. Township and any ensuing gunfire could put the women and children at risk. Whatever the reason. Dale felt he needed to do something personally to prevent the violence on April. Eighteenth the day before the radicals planned attack. Dale Win to Cat Creek there. He discovered a new rumor. The radicals believed that. Fbi were onto them and would be the first ones to attack the next day. They believed this. Preemptive attack was going to take place at Cat Creek and not justice township. Dale immediately saw the confusion as his chance to defuse the situation. He posited that if the FBI were to attack it would probably be at night. Therefore the smart play would be to take all of the small militia groups around Central Montana and have them coalesce around Cat Creek instead of justice in preparation for the attack in reality. Dale hope this plan would move the militias away from justice township and distract them long enough to let April nineteenth passed without violence. The militia leaders bought into Dale's plan and they immediately made the call to move forces away from justice to Cat Creek. Then they waited for nightfall but nothing happened. April nineteenth nineteen ninety-six came and went. Not a bullet was fired. Not a barricade was broken and not a single. Fbi agent descended on Cat Creek. According to Dale Jakes he had single handedly managed to stop a gunfight not long after April nineteenth the FBI began contacting various out of state radical militias. The goal was to convince them that the FBI was intending to wait out the freemen until they surrendered. Hopefully this would incite the out of state militias to give up and had home. It worked in the following weeks. The outside militias gradually trickled out of Montana. Leaving the freemen at Cat Creek alone. Things weren't as simple as the F. B. I. Hoped Dale Jake soon discovered that this exodus was part of a secret plan among the militias should the FBI fire upon justice township the other groups would swoop in with coordinated attacks all across the United States. The details remain unclear to this day. But according to Dale the attacks would include assassinations of government officials. The FBI initially downplayed the news. They were still hopeful that these militias were all talk however a few days later they sent out were to other. Fbi branches warning them to be on the lookout for potential attacks. In the meantime the agents in Montana continued to dig in their heels. These rumors were just further reason why they could not be the first to fire by mid-may the standoff was reaching the two month mark and the FBI offers of negotiation had gone completely ignored in total they had offered forty two different representatives including politicians family members and even other right wing activists but to no avail. The freemen refuse to talk finally on May Sixteenth. Rodney skurdal caved. He agreed to talk along with fellow. Freeman leader Dale Jacoby not to be confused with undercover agent. Dale Jakes for a week. Skurdal and Jacoby spoke with Colorado State. Senator Charles Duke and two F. B. I. Negotiators these meetings were kept private but skurdal reportedly threw tantrums and no evident progress was made a week later on. May Twenty Third Justice Township raised an upside down American flag the universal symbol of distress the F. B. I hope this meant that. They would be leaving but instead the day marked the end of negotiations. Evidently the compound was signalling to its sympathizers that they needed reinforcements. Soon but over a week would go by until the group made another gesture from late. May to early June the FBI seemed to be changing their mind. Negotiations with Skurdal had failed miserably and the standoff had exceeded two months. They knew it was time to do something on June third. They cut the power inside justice. Township that same day the freemen aquiesced to speak with the sister of one of their members. Both tactics seem to have a positive result. A few days later one family walked out of justice with the promise of no federal charges against them. They decided their ideals were no longer worth risking the lives of their children. Over the following days more and more women and children were released from Justice Township in June twelfth. A sixteen year old girl was the last child to leave the compound with only armed men left inside the FBI planned a bold escalation of plans the next morning June thirteenth FBI vans circled the perimeter of the property to the freemen inside it appeared that a potential assault was on the horizon. The moment of truth had come where they're going to fight back or were they exactly. What the F. B. I? Had hoped they were all along. Just a bunch of loud talking lunatics. At this point the freemen supplies were nearly depleted. Even if they could succeed in the first wave of an attack they could hardly be expected to repel another or another after that on top of all that Freeman leader. Rodney SKURDAL had run out of cigarettes. He was Jonesing hard for his nicotine. Fix to the relief of everyone. The freemen put down their arms one by one they surrendered to the FBI. The Eighty one day standoff at Justice Township was over. Not a single shot was fired. Not a drop of blood.

In a few of his anti-government comrades created the Montana freemen their dream was to eventually stage a local government takeover and establish their own independent nation within the State of Montana in the meantime. The group attracted trickle of new members through their deft. Use of fraud to make money by early nineteen ninety-five the FBI had sealed indictments against various members of the group but they were reticent to pull the trigger they were worried about inciting violence and subsequently public ire but all this changed following the Oklahoma City bombing on April nineteenth nineteen ninety-five a wave of panic overcame the FBI in America. Who was going to be next for the FBI? In Montana this meant setting their sights on fifty seven year old Leroy Schweitzer and his freeman cronies the FBI still had no idea as to how dangerous the freemen were they just knew that the four leaders including Schweitzer and Rodney Skurdal were heavily armed and hold up in skurdal's cabin in Roundup Montana. They needed information from the inside and they already had the perfect agent in mind. Dale jakes forty four year old. Danielle Jake's had experienced as a civilian undercover agent working for organizations like the FBI ATF and da throughout the nineteen eighties. But in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Dale decided it was time to live a simpler life and he and his wife. Connie moved to Montana eventually ending up in petroleum county about an hour. North of Roundup Bill Bounce from job to job and by early nineteen ninety-five. He was working as a bar tender. Several of his regulars were Montana freemen members and Dale witnessed their anti-government talk firsthand. He hated their bastardized interpretation of the Bible in their late disdain for paying taxes but he carefully kept these thoughts to himself. It was no secret that the freemen were capable of financial terrorism in the last thing. Dale wanted was to get in their way that is until the FBI got a hold of him. They knew that with details previous work experience and his bartending position. He would make the perfect decoy. In spring of Nineteen ninety-five they approach to Dale about infiltrating the freemen and feeding Intel back to the FBI. But First Dale was hesitant. It had been about seven years since his last undercover job and he knew the strain could be on his family but between the freemen's reputation and the recent Oklahoma City bombing tail felt. He needed to go deep one last time. Dale knew exactly who he would. Target one of his patrons of Freeman named Lyle Chamnber. L'an he and lyle were on such good terms that lyle had previously asked pointblank if he wanted to join the Freeman. Dale had always turned him down. But by April of Nineteen ninety-five when Dale's FBI assignment was made official. He called Lyle and said he was ready to become a freeman a few days later. Dale was brought into skurdal's cabin and presented before the four freemen leaders for their customary inquisition for hours Schweitzer skurdal their comrades interrogated Dale. They wanted to make sure he shared the same perspective on race. Religion and government. Dale answered flawlessly then. Came the last question. Why did he want to become a freeman? Dale had rehearsed his answer many times and he told them exactly what they were hoping to hear. The United States was under attack by foreigners in the federal government had financially ruined his family joining the Montana freemen was a noble cause to finally right the injustices faced by every day white Americans. The freemen smiled back Dale. He was officially one of them and to Dale and his book. False prophets. What really seemed to impress. The leaders was his previous involvement with hate groups. And how along the way he picked up an unusual knowledge of explosives. Obviously he had not told them that this was all in service of groups like the FBI in the weeks that followed Dale was swiftly brought into the freemen's fold. He accumulated intelligence on how their bank fraud schemes. Worked as well as the layout of SKURDAL's cabin in round up. All of this information went back to the FBI as Dale Delve. Deeper into the group's INS and outs he was amazed. At how unorganized the freemen's accounts were and so with the FBI permission. He suggested they bring in a bookkeeper to organize the offices and he knew the perfect candidate his thirty seven.

"I'm going to laugh. That's crazy. Yeah yeah that's a whole `nother level then I guess. Probably Hello James Privacy stuff to do anything that I've seen but they don't care. They're making their money money regardless. Give us that right. That's all we're worried about. This won't have a spotify. Can I got the free shipping. You're welcome to go in there and change my free ass all the fucker French Montana all you want. They don't carry yet but I think at some point they probably will have to start paying attention to stuff like this. You know because this is charging everywhere on billboards all of a sudden you like. You can't believe that there's always people San Artists that come out of nowhere that people in the industry plants and stuff like that so so it is going to give credence to that. So I don't know man I when I saw it I was like wow this is interesting because streaming something that has been a topic of conversation for years now but wait if these stream farms are legal then. Wouldn't that already kind of say that. These numbers are into be doubted anyway. If the way he's doing it sounds like the way he's doing it sounds like it's illegal because they're hacking no no no but what I'm saying is if they're going to the place that Ralph talked about these. Okay okay okay. This is assuming that Ralph is telling the truth right now and the things do exist and I trust him because he's kind of phones. Yes so if if these things do exist and their legal and people know they exist are artists looked down upon. If it's found out that they went to one of these places this I would believe so. Obviously because it's like you're buying your your own sales okay so in the league galley behind it either though like person. I don't know the legality reality if it is legal. If it's not legal I don't I don't know I mean that's a big gray area though. Why would they exist because the person that runs them we'll get paid and then obviously the artists want to try to make as much? No no what I'm saying is if this is automatically an ethical thing to do Why would this company even exist and putting out their business as a purchaseable service if any artists that goes to them is automatically going to be looked? Looked at doing something unethical. Are we sure that this happens. I just know that they're stream farms and I know that there's people that pay to get their shit stream. Well I think the other thing is if your spotify and you're paying for these plays you WanNa make sure that the streams that are being here. Yeah Yeah So. That's why I think they they gotta get underneath the BECAUSE THEY THEY WANNA cut down on the amount of money that they're paying the people I'm just confused about what would be the point of an artist going to a stream farm and paying them to get money. How are they getting money? If you're paying them you're paying and then it's just a it's almost. Yeah it's like what like paying interest on something so the money that you're paying the stream farm so low that you're GONNA get back way more with this. Sounds like the dumbest Shit I've ever fucking heard. So why would they. Why would they charge so low to do something like this as opposed to just getting probably overseas somewhere? But but I'm saying they could just get their own artist if this is how this works according to Y'all They could just pull any random artist and say come over to our stream farm. This will we're going to do. Why would and how would you even market that type of service because it seems like these guys would hold the key to the universe if they have the names named all of these people that are paying to go to these stream farms?.
