"Doing. Emily. Thanks for calling in. Let's go to John in Morningside Heights Online to Hi, John. Thanks for calling all of it. You're on the air. Hi. How are you? I'm doing great. I like this point You're gonna make 00 you do? Oh, good. I'm so glad you know about because nobody knows about this. So any type of you know, climate change scenario past to include hydrogen feels all economy. Sorry, kind of nervous, so it's OK but John Kerry has, you know mentioned it the last couple of days. You know, once in his press conference in No once yesterday on the national TV, I think was racial metal show, but, um, yeah, I mean, you know, California has about 9000 cars made by Toyota, Honda and Hyundai. That are running around the roads there, but they really need the stations and every car manufacturer right now has a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle program. It's just, you know, battery and battery electric vehicles of sort of I hate to say suck the oxygen out of the the atmosphere. And so it's tough for hiding. Sort of, you know, get a foothold but 18 countries right now. Have a hydrogen, you know, plan or road map that they're gonna pursue, including China and a bunch of company countries in Europe. As well. So it's really important that we get on board with this and And you know they're Toyota and Honda in hundreds. Waiting to buy cars. In the Northeast. They've been trying to for five years. There's actually almost 12 stations. Up and running right now, so and really good news coming out of the Boston area in Boston Fire Department, which is has approved these cars on the bridges and tunnels and we're just waiting for The Port Authority in New York, New Jersey to get on board, too. Thanks so much for bringing that into the conversation. I really appreciate it. My guess is David Pogue. We're talking about how to prepare for climate change a practical guide to surviving the chaos. So in your book, you talk about something that not everybody can afford to do right now, which is Moving and leaving areas that are affected and maybe going someplace else. So the thing is, though, if you're moving, you probably live in a place that climate that's climate vulnerable. How have we seen climate change affect the real estate market? Um, Yeah, well, Miami is is the key poster child for this principle. Um, you know, Miami is going to be underwater. There There is. I mean, people are saying by late this century, it's It's just gone low lying. You can't build a sea wall around it. The sea levels are rising. And you know when the when the international Intergovernmental Panel on climate change says that we're expecting sea levels to rise. You know 3 to 8 ft. You might think what's 3 ft up. But what you have to remember 3 Ft up means, you know, 1000 ft in landed it czar businesses in our homes in our basements in our first floors. So, um, you're right. Not everyone can afford to move. Not everyone wants to move considering you have a social network and so on, But You know, my point in the book is that 40 million people in America do move every year anyway for retirement. They're marrying or divorcing or getting a job or getting out of the military or school. Ondo. Sometimes, increasingly, the climate change haven principle is AH, guiding force in these decisions. And you know, the West Coast is wildfires. South Coast. It's hurricanes. The East Coast is super storms. The South is baking heat. And in the left half the West half they We have huge water shortages that not many people are talking about, yet they're more or less in a permanent state of drought. On do There's no easy solution to that. So so really the answer to where to move If you have a choice for long term climate protection is the Great Lakes. It's the great old Rust Belt cities. You know, Cleveland loose Burlington Madison, these air cities with unlimited amounts of clean fresh water to drink. And no wild fires and no hurricanes. And they're great places to live, You know, low cost of living and diverse population, well educated airports, hospitals and so on. Duluth, actually really cool town. It is very cold. It's just very, very cool. Little City. I'm sure cares if you think you know. Obviously, this book was written before the pandemic, do you Do you think that pandemic will change this people may not want to live in cities. Anymore, and we know that work is possible now. Yeah, That's right. Um You know the pandemics been sort of interesting because a two beginning of it. We witnessed the greatest drop in greenhouse gas emissions in recorded history. The United States saw a 10% drop in greenhouse gas divisions. I mean, it's for a terrible reason. It's that nobody was working and all the factories were sitting close and the businesses were closed, but it did give everybody sort of Ah glimpse Of what could be possible and the opportunity to do a reset. And as you say, I'm sure Ah, lot of these zoom meetings, zoom rehearsals. Zoom dates on some of this stuff is going to survive after the pandemic is over. And all of that is one example of a way that The pandemic taught us Ways to decrease Our emissions and you know, in a more complex way the pandemic was part of what got Biden elected a man with Who Who's Who's number one or number two priority is climate change, so in an indirect way it was responsible for bringing into office. People who really cherish science. And really want to do something about the problem. My guess is David Pogue. The name of his book is how to prepare for climate change a practical guide to surviving the chaos. We'll talk about affordable solar panels. What about rain catching rain? We'll talk about the air conditioner conundrum and maybe why getting rid of your lawn is a good step, and we'll also take more of your calls after Break. This is all of.

"The entire thing, And this is how much he grew spending in New York City, and now you know, we as taxpayers are left with the bill. And while we have boom times for a while, and the budget group But you know, significantly over his tenure, but I'll buy you a building blocks. You did not actually raise any tax rates. The revenue he was able to spend was the result of positive economic growth, and now it is over. The you know, hot market is over. The desire of people who are high income to come here is gone and we will be left holding the bag throughout the next administration, and it's tough Even if you're progressive and and I want to root for the next mayor, whoever it is It's gonna be tough for that person because they're not going to have the ability to have any type of budget. You know, security going forward. I mean, since we're just since we're apparently taking a ride on the reality train here and not get a look at a lot of Christmas cheer yet for my friend job really out Staten Island. How big is our budget shortfall in are we going to see are ready to see real cuts. I mean, we're gonna see service cuts. Yeah, You will see probably layoffs of city workers. Um, again. I'm actually giving him two blocks a little bit of credit. Tonight, he re negotiated some deals with some large labor unions in the city. Sort of the first some payments that we would over them for fringe benefits and pension stuff. Basically just delaying it until better times return, which is a better option than laying off people and then having you know 10 2030 40,000 New Yorkers on unemployment. So I'm giving credit there. But there is going to be a significant reduction in head count in just about every agency. Um, you know, including some of them, the more significant one of the more serious ones. The police department, the Fire department. Probably will be looking at reductions of headcount overtime. Joe and were speaking to Joe Borelli, City councilman for New York out in Staten Island, Joe, What do we have to do to what could what could be done realistically, with Democrats in charge as they are here, and that's not going to change, right? We we deal in reality. What could be done to start turning this around? I mean, I just I just want the New York of like the Bloomberg era. You don't know. How do we get back to that? Yeah, I mean way. Get back to it by allowing businesses to come here and grow to allow you. Some rezoning is around the city that that will encourage the development of skyscrapers. Encourage the development of new housing, encourage development of basically jobs, You know, blue collar private sector job. Where are those of the things that that the next mayor should be focusing on? But I'm very confident they're not going to get much further than all police are bad. We have to tax the rich on. We need to build, you know, publicly owned, affordable housing, and we have to punish landlords because they have the unfortunate luck of owning buildings. I'm worried that what they so I think that there's a problem here and that de Blasio, while the rest of us see all the suffering and and all the misery that's going on because of the poor. Yes, there's Cove in. That's been terrible. But there's also poor management of the city and other state of New York going on. But I think that Cuomo's a little bit different. I mean, he just He just kind of lies about what's happening. As far as I know, he's just making stuff up as he goes along its kind of sociopathic in my view, and I know you have to work with these people. So you don't have no, I'm not saying Joe Borelli say that Governor is a total sociopath. Bill de Blasio's a Bad mayor, but but I fundamentally believe that Andrew was a bad person. You know? Okay. That's what I was going. Okay. So you you and I agree on this. Okay? That's good to know. Because because I was gonna say, I mean, but from from the de Blasio perspective for Cuomo, it's all about Cuomo and like, I think he's got aspirations run for president and I get that right, So he's just a slimy politician, and he's a bad guy. De Blasio, I think and maybe talk me off the ledge. Your love it. I think that he views the economic devastation and at a lot of wealthy people leaving the city and I don't mean super ritual That's happening, too. But I just mean you're well off people that have a lot of mobility. They're leaving the city and the the Real estate problem That's going to be a real real issue in midtown with all these office buildings. They're talking about rezoning them. I think he views this as a crisis and one that can be Leveraged to the greatest redistribution of wealth possible in New York City. That's what I think because you see, he is completely honest and open about that. I mean, he is You know, they call him off the cuff when someone said, Well, don't you care about restaurants and his gut reaction? His quick response was well done holding, you know, rich people go to restaurants. On that Just kind of, you know, gives you an insight, Tomo what His priorities actually genuinely are And like you said he doesn't care. If these companies don't come back to Midtown, You know, skyscrapers. It'll resolve them and allow them to convert nto luxury or or affordable housing units and things like that. But but But again, I mean, this is this is the work of someone who's at least honest in their vision for New York, although most people would agree that it's probably not a good vision, dude to go down. How are the restaurant's it How the restaurant's doing that you're talking to about trying to get lawsuit's going to reopen and everything. I mean, I just I feel like this is all gonna fall off the radar because we're going into this holiday period. People have got their own things to think about it everything else, but I mean these small businesses. It's it's already a ghost town and some blocks in my neighborhood. Yeah, I mean again. I mean, it compounds the mayor and governors problem. I mean, you know, Andrew Cuomo is not just, you know, losing in terms of having the most deaths and hospitalizations, he's losing in terms of having the largest budget deficit as a percentage of the budget. I actually think Hawaii or Wyoming or one of them might might beat us. But of the real state of the big states. Mean New York is short about 15 to 17%. In their revenue over the next two years, and this is primary. The reasons of this primarily is that the city and state are eight and a quarter percent partners on every single business transaction that happens in the city and state. And if those cash registers aren't you know, bringing up money than the city and state aren't getting it in the same thing with with hotel occupancy tax hotel occupancy tax is a very predictable on liquid. Income for the city of New York. You know, we collect property taxes basically quarterly, but things like sales tax and hotel occupancy tax are the things that actually put money in our pockets. Day after day after day, and the budget deficits were seeing because none of these things are happening because we're locked down in perpetuity with no hope of opening. No hope of opening Broadway, no hope of opening museums, really? And those are all the reasons that people come to New York and they're right. I mean, why would you come to New York if those things are there? I assure you, you know, walking up an empty street corner in Morningside Heights is not going to get tourist to come. Joe People are going to the holiday season. What is what is the job early? I gotta ask you this. All right? This is your Kris Kringle moment. This is your your Santa Claus opportunity here. You have a very little president. Some of Morelli's wisdom? What is your case for optimism in 2021?.

As a consequence of learning, learning some tips and some information from Larry and Tony tonight now Last Sunday, there was a horrific event. In New York City. I will bet you that some of you out there. Are unaware of this event. So if if, if you have heard about it, I think I'm going to give you more information than you. Then you have now, if you've not heard about it, I think you're going to be shocked. And by the way, my source of information here is none other than the New York Times, Okay? So it's last Sunday afternoon, about four o'clock. On the steps of the Cathedral of Saint John. The Divine in mourning more Morningside Heights. Okay, that church happens to be. I think the seat The cathedral, which I guess would be the seat of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, and there was a Christmas concert on the steps of the church. Which was wonderful, and it was lovely. Early winter or late fall afternoon in New York City. And when the concert ended Gunman. Who had worked his way up to the top of the steps. If you can picture a big cathedral with steps going up to cathedral began firing Weapons into the air. He apparently had two weapons with him. There were a couple of police officers who were assigned Uh, you know, just to be at the at the church because it was It was a pretty good sized event, and there was another police officer who was nearby. With shooting broke out. And people scattered ran for cover. This outdoor Carol service had just ended. Andre people. Middle aged people, older people, younger people, people with kids were literally in the middle of what they thought was a firefight now. Again from everything that I've read about this. It did not appear that this guy was firing. Into the crowd, but he was firing into the air and clearly Bullets fired out of a gun can ricochet. Thank goodness. No one was killed. There was a volley of shots. There were a couple of police officers. An officer in the detective had been assigned. To be there in a third officer working in nearby hospital came over and those three officers essentially took care of the situation and the gunman. His name was Luis Manuel Vasquez Gomez 52 years of age, struck once in the head and died at a hospital literally next door to the church, but as he was firing His gun on attracting attention. He's yelling Kill me! Kill me! Murder me! Clearly. This guy, uh, was Well, I mean, he was he was out of his mind. Some call it suicide by police. Okay. Um, you do have people went when this guy, uh, was Taken out. Police at some point went through a backpack. They found a canister of gasoline, rope, knives and a Bible. Um, according to the police commissioner down there. Dermott F Shay, hey, said. I think we all could surmise the ill intentions by the proceeds of this bag. Um, it is. They apparently also found a letter in which he said that he was going to try to take people hostage. He's wearing a he happened to be from the Dominican Republic came here at the age of 10. In 1976. By the age of 24. Hey, had been arrested already several times on he had shot one woman. Hey, had sold cocaine to an undercover police officer, and he had some sort of a legal status. Okay, at some point in his life coming here again as a 10 year old with his family. But he basically was in and out of prison in and out of courts for the balance of his life in a ZAY said in November of 1990 sold cocaine to an undercover police officer. Hey, had pled guilty to unlawful possession of a gun in 1989. Hey had been, I guess what was called a legal U. S resident. He might have been theoretically as a Legal U. S resident on his way to get a green card and maybe become a U. S citizen, But that was derailed. And the thing that is interesting is that he was ordered deported. Twice a federal immigrate. Immigration judge ordered Mr Vasquez to be deported in 1995, citing his criminal convictions, because even if you're here And you're on the road to becoming a U. S citizen. If you commit serious crimes, you lose that status, Okay. Mr Vasquez successfully petitioned for the case to be reopened. This is his deportation and, according to The New York Times, A spokesman for the federal Agency of Immigration Agency said on Wednesday. That he was granted a waiver. 2017 Think about that. In 1995. If my math is correct, he would have been 27 years old. And already in and out of jail, having spent time in prison in upstate New York. And then this deportation order, and I believe there was one in 1995, and there was another in 2004. And he somehow granted a waiver in 2017. Now. This to me is just outrageous, outrageous that this individual who came here as a 10 year old I'm sure brought here by parents or relatives in in an effort to escape the poverty of the Dominican Republic. Comes here shows no gratitude whatsoever for being allowed to come to this country number one, uh, lives, then a life of crime. And for him to end up in prison. I'm sure he has a record as long as your arm pretty serious charges. Okay, pretty serious charges, and then he's able To avoid a deportation order that was issued in 1995. This guy should have been out of the country in 1995. And yet he stays here and across his mom and you would expect his mom with whom he lived in the Bronx until his death. Had in coverage her son to seek counseling. I'll bet he I bet she did, but it remained unclear if he'd ever received a formal mental health diagnosis or treatment, the mom said. By the time he climbed the steps to the cathedral, however, his anger had been simmering for years, his sister said. He was so damaged, his sister said..

"Some of you know his 40 year tradition of playing winter solstice concerts at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine In Morningside Heights, the 41st and when annual Winter Solstice concert, the one this year will be virtual, and for today, Paul has also brought a gift of music for us. From his new album called Light of the Sun. Hi, Paul. Big fan and thanks for giving us a few minutes happy solstice. Well, thank you, Brian. The same to you. How did the Saint John the Divine Solstice Concert tradition gets started way back in 1980. The dean of the cathedral, then the rib very Reverend James Parkes more than heard us play a to couple of events and asked if we would want to come and play at the cathedral, which at first I couldn't imagine doing. I had been there for Duke Ellington's funeral 1974. Was the most astounding place I've ever been to and I, But after a while, I finally agreed that we could find I hoped we could find music that would be appropriate. In any case, I began to think of what would be the most universal milestone of the year. We could celebrate. And it occurred to me is the winter solstice, which includes everybody in the world. And did you have an all face all culture celebration of diversity of life on Earth? And so we did our first one. That December thinking well with we would do it one time and now we've done it's 40 times. Hi. Well, even the title of your new album Light of the Sun makes it sound like you're very attuned to the changing cycle of light throughout the year. How'd you get interested in this? Well, it probably has a boy scout in the mountains of Pennsylvania going up, Uh, being outdoors and, uh, feeling at home there, Um and, uh, now I live in the hills of northwest Connecticut and When you can get to be in nature some I mean, I think it's just It's intuitive with us. You know, it's funny that you talk about the boy scouts and going out like that. For me growing up in Queens. Um And then you know the first time I went camping, which wasn't until I was young adult. Kind of struck me in the face that you better be in tune with nature throughout the day or you're screwed. Right? Exactly. But light is visual music is audio. How do they connect? In a space like the cathedral, which is the world's largest, um, that has seven second reverberations. Music comes alive there. Are better than speech does. As does the theatrical lighting that we use in this winter solstice celebration. That illuminates the cathedral. I think in ways that it never has been before, and that's what's been thrilling to see as we went through 40 years of our archives. Videos of this event to come up with 2.5 hours that would highlight the most iconic performance is over all these decades. So that's going to be a treat Your 30 41st annual pulling to consort Consort Solstice concert. Those words are too similar. Um, Since you can't do it in person, it's gonna be a best of from the last 40 years. Yes. And we have with singers from seven cultures. Gary Brooker, from Procol Harum singing one of the most iconic songs of the 20th century with a whiter shade of pale. Even leans from Brazil. No Paul Stookey of Peter Paul and Mary, the Dmitri Pokrovsky fingers from Russia. Then we have a lot of dance, the African dancing and drumming of the Forces of Nature Dance Theater. And Philippe Petit will make a special appearance, too, repelling down from the vault of the cathedral as the torchbearer to two, then lead the procession to the Far East end of the cathedral to ignite the sun. How can people see that? Give them the Web address. It's a video on demand. And the access is available on solstice concert.

With its outsized marble angels, riding on faux Egyptian stinks is as a vulgar and irredeemable eyesore. But today I refrained from offering my opinion for it happened that the rial Reverend Walker Lambert had championed the midtown mausoleum by way of discouraging trump from his preferred postmortem disposition.

Watch them all to bits much. Channel five. Not at night. The one That is the least. Despicable. They're all despicable. In my opinion, the most the least despicable local news. You could watch a CBS Maurice Dubois. You're right about that right now is a matter of fact. Ah. Maurice Dubois Last night was the only station that ast far as I'm concerned that covered that brutal attack in Washington Heights of those thugs, both men and women. By the way, males and females. They were young. They were like teenagers. The brutal It's savage attack, which it leads me into this. That's savage attack on this Latino stepped out in his daughter. It was horrific toe watch, just looking. We posted it on the Bernie and said, But Channel two was the only local news I believe covered that they're the one It was horrendous. And it was all these guys. These white guys in Maga hats. Pouring into the deli as thes Latinos tried to escape, and they just pummeled them. And what white girls with the maga hats on as well. Of course I just please. Yeah, but seriously, I mean, come on. What's going on out here was ugly. Actually, the stepdaughter thought they killed her stepfather. That's it was thought he died. It was so hard to watch. And then at one point, a woman One of the female. I don't know. She was 16 or 22. I don't know what the hell she was. She grabs bottles from the From the think the counter. She opens up the freezer. Grabs a bottle starts beating the girl on the head after the girl's been being pummeled by a guy. It was unbelievable. So you have this kind of violence in this mentality. This is this savage mentality going on. In the streets and how many of these things are not caught on videotape. That was you had the guy in Christie's beaten up with a hammer, The Christie's Ah worker there, a 12 year old attacked yesterday viciously attacked again in a bodega in bed Stuy. And it's a two year old boy in Morningside Avenue 110 straight. I guess you'd call it Morningside Heights, something flowing Harlem. It's all the heights. It's all height, right. Ah, little bit north of that is Columbia Heights and growth that is Hamilton. See what I'm saying? Not not none. Hall. Um, no, but you have that and also on 89 year old woman, said an 89 year old woman in Brooklyn. She was attacked by two guys who lit her a shirt on fire. I mean, what is going on? God, what the hell? What is happening out here? You want to have a conversation about Violence and inner city violence. Folks, You want an honest conversation? We should have that one day, but the mayor said one with demonizing cops, But then the mayor say well, much safer now. That's right. He did. Yeah, he said that you're right. And you know what else? He said, speaking of cops, and we talked about You know the police really, really dead law enforcement in general, they're being assaulted, verbally and literally physically being assaulted all over the place. 52 cops the other night in Chicago, protecting the Columbus statue. And guess what. Lori Lightfoot had that Columbus statue taken down last night. Legally, she sent of, you know city officials to take it down. It's God and those cops were injured, trying to protect it. So it's down. And what did she get for appeasing the mob what the mob went to her house to protest last night protests because she made she couldn't deal with President Trump to allow 200 federal agents to come to Chicago. To help stem the systemic carnage That's going on now that if I'm correct becomes the third time where a Democrat Ah politician is Jacob Fry in Minneapolis, the mayor in Portland and now Lightfoot in Chicago, where they've been on the side of the bad guys have been appeasing and pandering and they still get bored and you can never appease these. These these animals is what they are. These domestic terrorist essentially that the major league Baseball is bowing Annie, too. It's unreal. It's absolutely incredible. And speaking of de Blasio, that's what he said about the president's offer to send. Send us help here in New York two sets to stem some of this violence that I'm talking about listening to this moron. What the president's talking about is unconstitutional. It is not the place of the federal government to send in agencies. They're supposed to be doing entirely different things. What is he using them for? Is using for a political stunt, obviously, for his own re election when the president states starts to use federal officers like his own personal police force, that's very dangerous for our democracy. Personal police you son of a Bitch! You rotten best I personal, personal police. This city looking. I just outlined a what kinds of people getting pummeled, assaulted? Never mind the shootings and the poor kid. A one year old kid shot in the chest in Brooklyn and the Brandon Hendrix laid to rest last week. He's trying to help out. I mean, that's what that's his obligation and hey, offered. You said no. So they're not coming? Yes, he need your permission or he needs Governor Cuomo's permission, Cuomo said. Not right now. De Blasio. By the way, the Blasio disbanded this anti graffiti unit. Of course, like, you know, cause peanuts really as this. I believe the New York Heather McDonald call that It's a rounding error in the city's budget overall, so graffiti will stay. Nobody's going to clean up graffiti anymore. That was part of the broken Windows thing. We're going backwards on everything. But anyway, that's Bill Deblasio personal Police force. Not even got worse on MSNBC again. He's calling the president's personal police force. At least he didn't take shots of the cops in particular, unlike Maxine Waters, enjoy read, Listen to them.

We have a chief of patrol and chargeable operation of NYPD. Fausto be chopped and he's born Dominican Republic came here nine years old twenty one years in the NYPD and now the highest ranking Dominican. Ever for this new position a good morning chief. How are you this morning? Good Morning John. Thanks for having me on really appreciate. I'm doing well. Thank you These are interesting times I would say times at us. City and Nypd have never faced before. Tell us how you feel about it. What's going on. Look I mean you know surely is extraordinary time for this city. Unprecedented if you will something. We've never at this magnitude face before and we've been through a lot in the city over the last you know two and three decades and historically as well but there's no doubt in my mind that New Yorkers and certainly the men and women the fifty five thousand strong civilian and uniform are resilient We'll fight through this just like every other New Yorker and We'll recover and I think all the men and women of the NYPD for what they've always done those that have come before us and certainly those that are doing the job day in and day out out in the street right now. They have do things that Darren countering. They have to go into people's apartments. See if they're alive or dead. After we removed our police officers. He clipped the Dad. The right equipment though. Do you feel comfortable on that or do we need. We need anything additional. Look I mean this is what we're fortunate in the NYPD that will well resourced Not only with personnel but but now with equipment and if you look at the totality of where we stand today in terms of personal protective equipment and I'll throw some numbers at you. I in terms of gloves and ninety five match surgical masks as we stand this morning we have issued over half a million gloves gloves to our police officers and civilian members out in the street close to three hundred and fifty thousand and ninety five mask. Overlay that with three quarters of a million surgical masks over nine thousand disinfectants spray bottles. Over three hundred thousand individual wipes and over seventy eight thousand bottles of liquid hand sanitizer and one of the reasons we can do. That is yes. Certainly as a well resourced police department but also really due to the generosity of New Yorkers and specifically the police foundation if you look at March thirty first and the Police Foundation private donors and generosity has has always been intricate it with a police department but they they will able to purchase an additional hundred fifty thousand masks pair of gloves and one hundred fifty thousand packets of hand sanitizers so much like New Yorkers who come to precincts and just bring ten twenty fifty master and give them to all police officers and all civilian members the partnership that we've had and continue to have with the police foundation certainly helps us maintain those resources available for for the men and women of the NYPD. I know Susan Birnbaum visit visit terrific job and Putting together resources from the private sector and Rick sure a police officers prepared now with all the problems that we've had lately with the new bail law whic rectors island with the people from rectors being released on a street Sir with the virus Tallahassee kind of problems that we're countering W- on the streets of New York well where we stand currently We're still up about six percent in crime for the year to date and that's up jet as of January first took today where we're at. And listen there is certainly a humane factor to this. And when you speak about rikers island and we have to understand and be compassionate about every human being but we also have to a public safety agency. We really have to balance that with the safety of every New Yorker and certainly some of the victims that have been victimized by these people so it is a delicate balance We are a position based organization as you as you very much. Well are aware of John and we will continue to ensure that the safety of every New Yorker remains on our top priority. The other problem that necessarily problem the homelessness and Subways People WanNa feel safe when he had to subway system. How is that progressing? Well as you can see it as well reported. Ridership has has decreased throughout the subways. But one thing that had not decreased is our presence in the subway systems Every day every morning afternoon night in the wee hours of the morning you will see our police officers president. I mean you look at what just happened over. The last couple of days off police officers arresting individual who was responsible for pickpocketing. Somebody on the subway so our transit police continue to Protect every subway riders certainly the employees that and and New Yorkers that traveled to and from all these central workers everyone who takes the subway systems. So we're out there. We continue to be out there and A police officers down. There are a if I may say a really really good job. Well what else would you like to tell all? Do you up his. We talked about to transit system. We talked about the streets of New York. we've talked about the police. The police people be ready for active private homes. What what else would you think we should be? Well I think certainly in the first thought in my mind is really to thank every New York and so please every New Yorker to keep our families. The memory of the twenty seven members of the service both civilian and uniform that have passed away in the last few weeks due to corona virus and some of the complications associated with this. Oh first and foremost I'd like to really ask every New Yorker To keep them close to their hearts and their loved ones and families in their mind And I really WanNa thank every New Yorker for the support that you give men and women in the police department. And I'd be remiss John Pipe. Frankly debated really. Didn't think and thank the men and women who day in and day out in spite of them being ill I mean we had over four thousand uniform that civilian members of this of this department who test positive for Ovid and over sixteen hundred of those have come back to work already. I mean think about the resiliency of of of human beings of this organization of the civilians and up the police officers of every rank and detectives. That do this job day in and day out and who continue to do with despite of everything that's going on in the city and in the world and for perspective you see it as well as as I do but let me just highlight a couple of things that that are. Police officers are still doing out in the street. If you look at the end of March or March twenty nine and we know there was a tremendous Backlog with With so many people call nine one one and and calls with with people you know either delivering babies with two police sources offices Teresi inferior. You know help deliver a baby boy up in the Bronx and the four seven in the evening wolf section up there. If you look which has happened the last few days I mean from from April eighth to April fifteenth in the four six preaching in the Bronx again. Our anti-crime officers still recovering illegal firearms in four separate incidents for six different individuals and just a couple of days ago. They responded to to a call of shots being fired in the middle of the street at eight at night and Bam. You only encountered the individual in possession of that gun and had tremendous which rings ordering him to drop that gun and safely at them and remove another gun and another criminal off the street. I mean these are the stories that that are not heard or untold. Sometimes I wanNA thank you for giving me nothin the NYPD. The opportunity to get that word and I can sit here John and and beyond the beyond this call with you for hours from Staten Island to Brooklyn to Queens to Manhattan in every borough of the city or men and women are doing short and every work and it's not just about police work. It's also about what they're doing for community members. You look at some stories out in Queens in the one hundred twelve th precinct or in Morningside Heights into thirtieth precinct. Where police officers are getting word? That's some community members Elderly can't go out and get groceries and our police are hand delivering some of these work these groceries working within the community to ensure that. They're safe I mean it. It is really Extraordinary what this city is going through in the world but we're really blessed in this city and in this organization to have men and women who are so passionate who are so dedicated to ensure that they do. They're poor in keeping themselves saves protecting the people of this great city in every way and every formed they possibly can well. I've always said and a lot of new. Yorkers have said the greatest asset the citizens of New York has is the NYPD police the pup to protect some chief of Betrothed Fausto Paichadze.

"The day today. We're talking about the tragedy of Notre Dom yesterday. Very hard to believe that this really happened. John. We were just talking about the Dreyfuss affair the antisemitism. And it's. And it's a strange thing because I was making the points. I always want to frame things that when you force religion on people typically, it backfires, they end up going through the motions and not really owning themselves, and the government kind of takes responsibility. And so then you get a kind of a dead religion coupled with the backlash or the rebellion that manifest itself as anti clerical ISM or as aggressive secularism. And in France, you really clearly have that you have a kind of secularism in France going all the way back obviously to the French revolution, which is very ugly. I would say in many cases demonic a real hatred of God. And the things of God. And to me the situation with Notre Dom. I think this is going to affect the French people in in most ways, I would say for the good. I think they may begin to think. They're probably already thinking more deeply about you know, what is the heart of France. And what is Christianity and France because they've lost something that they so tremendously took for granted. And those released my initial thoughts. I think they might start to realize that what's truly great about France as his truly great of any country that has ever been Christian its greatest period was always when it was pervaded and suffused with supernatural faith. And the reason why a state religion tends to be dead religion, compare religion to America, right? If the love affair between God, and the soul. Well, how great forced marriages where someone kidnapped and Mary without their consent. That usually doesn't work is angry at me. I gotta say. Chill. She'll get over it. She's gonna learn to love me. Okay. You're you're you're quite right, John. And I think that this is part of the tragedy of western Europe. Is that you have look not just western Europe. You have this in Greece. You have this in Italy. A lot of Europe was Christian in a way that was so closely allied to the state that when the Christianity needed to be real Christianity failed. I mean, the story of bond Hoffer stories the classic story that German Lutheranism was not sufficient to withstand the satanic evil of Hitler. There was just dead religion. And the few Christians that were really robust in their faith weren't able to rally the church in Germany to stand against the evil. And you have a lot of that. And then the the backlash, and that's what you're talking about. You know, in one thousand nine five is that ironically, whatever authority the church had which might have been quite good. Is it self lost all of Florida? Become suspect, and you fall into the trap that we've fallen into now in America after Watergate in his sixties that any thority whether the church or the state or any goodness is somehow the aspersion is cast upon it of hypocrisy or well. Anyway, that that's my general take capture the passion and conviction of faith that led ordinary people to volunteer. Their time in the twelve and thirteen centuries. These were peasants and craftsmen who didn't have tons of free time, they weren't bubbling over with material wealth, but they devoted themselves day after day week after week our after our volunteering to build Notre dumb, and it took two hundred years of people volunteering their time people donating of sometimes the kings, donating the church did have some wealth of its own. But it was most. Spontaneous people, you know, the way when someone is shot in say ghetto neighborhood, and you see a little memorial and people put flower plaques. Well, this was the equivalent it was crowd sourcing a cathedral, and that's why one part of the cathedral flight, it's lightly different architectural style than the other. Because when they were making the newer one, they use the newer style. So it's not perfectly match each organic almost like a tree that grew over two hundred years, and it grew out of authentic faith love for God. Love for beauty now in in the secular west, and I won't just single out friends. We we women church like that is destroyed you hear people say what you could never build that. Again. We don't have the crafts. We don't have the technique. In fact, we do if you go up to Morningside heights, you'll see the building gothic cathedral, slowly the cathedral, Saint John the divine techniques still exist what we don't have the techniques of. Faith and love, and and hope and self sacrifice and shoop shoop focus on the supernatural a sense that God is really there. Really is this invisible world of grace and redemption which worth using our earthly lives to to connect with and to build up our relationship with we think it's not really worth the sacrifice. You know? It might be true might not be true was not really worth making that big bet on it. You know, I think I'll do this other thing that's more comfortable. I I've noticed something can this is at least in Catholic churches, Protestant churches. The more comfortable the seats, the uglier cheaper and stupider the the the altar and the factuality are, whereas if you have an old church with exquisite windows, and marble altar it often be hard bench and something hard to kneel on. But what you get to the new churches built in the sixties the stuff that's meant to honor God in the sanctuary. Looks like a portal nombre talented seven year old art class in about ten minutes. And it's cheap materials like cells and polyester and it's simple in its crude. But my gosh, they're like thrones cushions so comfortable. We value our butts beyond our souls and God. Wow. You're just you're very lapidary. Talker. John what you said about writing this article, which people can read at the stream stream dot org, folks dot org, and the title is are we to primitive to rebuild? Notre dom. Use it writing the article was like live tweeting from your mother's funeral and other lapidary phrase. So I have to say John that you know, we're touching on some very important things. That's why I wanted to have you on today because this is not just about. Oh, some terrible thing happened, you know, it's powerfully symbolic deeply symbolic when I think about you know. Suzanne yesterday said something like it's almost as if Saint Patrick's cathedral where to go away. And then we both realize oh my gosh. That doesn't begin to begin to begin to compare to Notre Don, which is eight hundred years, we have absolutely nothing in the United States of America that can touch this. It's just it's just a staggering thing. Now, I heard someplace yesterday on the news that when when Victor Hugo wrote has famous novel bunch Beck of Notre Dom. I was at the turn of the century was at following the Dreyfuss affair. I can't even remember how that was before. Oh, I'm sorry. So it's way before that. But but in a way, I guess what I heard on the news was that it brought new attention to Notre Dom that somehow had already I guess because of the the secularism of French aloof revolution, the general climate hydra believe that two hundred years ago in France. And you know, talk Ville touches on this. You have the kind of secularism that we haven't seen in America until like the nineteen sixties realistically. Can I put it in perspective for you? Please. How quickly things can go insane. As we watch American politics should should keep people up at night seventeen eighty nine when they decided to reform the French monarchy because it had gone broke largely by supporting the American revolution. By the way. When Louis the sixteenth decided to reform the French monarchy he had already abolished laws against product. Jews already liberalized a lot of things and gotten rid of some of the worst aspects of the French monarchy, but he he needed to reform it, so he summoned the estates general, and that that was like some of the common people some of the nobles and the bishop's would all meet in this in this estates. General was like a parliament. Well, it started in seventeen eighty nine with a religious procession with all the bishops of France carrying the Eucharist in a beautiful gold monstrance, and Gregorian chant and very solemn beautiful procession full of hope for the reform of France within four years. They were gunning down preseason nuns as traitors and trying to wipe out the whole population of the province of day because they clung to the Catholic faith and they wanted to restore the monarchy, and they didn't want to fight in the revolutions wars. Here's they went from a religious procession to an anti Christian violent persecution. Things can go that haywire that fast comfortable. Well when we come back. We'll continue the conversation with John's mirror,.
