Will Weekend Mass Shootings Force Congress to Act?
"It looks like a bunch of hearings, Jake, but I want to start with your quote of Chris Murphy yesterday talking to my friend Jonathan capehart. I don't think you got 60 votes for his bill. I think it could get 60 votes for a stop order bill. The severe threat order of protection, I just don't know. I don't know what's in Murphy's Bill, but it's not narrow enough, has anything changed with two three more shootings. You know, there was one in Orange County after ten miles from where I used to live at a Taiwanese Chinese church where a 60 year old man shot up 5 people. There was one in Houston, of course, the awful one in Buffalo. Does anything change? No. There's no legislation here. I don't think I really don't think unless I'm looking something that will get 60 votes. There have been there have been efforts as you note to boost the reporting system for people with mental illness and things like that. That has not gotten the attention or the energy from anybody. So we're kind of in this position. I mean, Chris Murphy was deputized earlier this year, I believe, maybe it was last year. So work with Republicans to see what he could get ten votes for anything to get a background check Bill or something more and he's not been able to find 60 votes for anybody. So that's kind of where that's kind of where the status of the situation.

Who Is YouTuber Sydney Watson?
"Look, for those who aren't familiar, this woman, why aren't you familiar with her? She's got almost 800,000 followers on YouTube, Sydney Watson with a wire. You've got to follow her on Twitter as well. But for those crazy people who've been under a rock for a couple of years, I've known you for a couple of years, very impressed with what you do. Tell us in a nutshell, just give us the elevator pitch. What do you do and where do you come from? Sydney? Well, people are seemingly unfamiliar with the fact that I am actually Australian despite my bizarre accent, which I am trying to get back just by the way. I want to sound more like you said than the yanks that are around us. So I'm Australian originally from Australia and YouTube the United States in 2019 to basically pursue politics because Australians are by and large pretty disinterested in politics and kind of just found myself drawn into. I guess a bunch of drama in the last little while with the situation that you're referring to, which was getting screened out effectively by Jack Murphy is a real estate his name on the show is he is. I was going to mention it, but I'm so glad that you decided to mention it first because Jack Murphy is an embarrassment to anybody who has testicles. I'm not sure he does anymore, but we will discuss that. So you left at the antipodes, you came here to be involved in politics. You wanted to speak like me, which I'm sorry most people think I have a South African accent that really annoys me. But what have you been doing for the last three years? And how have you been surviving COVID and tell people about what you do? Because your comment, you are like the long form version as far as I'm concerned, of libs of TikTok and you're not anonymous. Your brave woman who has these amazing films where you react to the insanity of the left. Am I misrepresenting you? Tell us, tell us your mission. We've got 3 million listeners plus the viewers. What is Sydney Watson about? Well, that is a fantastic question. I guess growing up by a bunch of penal colony kind of made me realize that freedom is really important. And I actually have my mom to thank for that viewpoint because she's from Ohio originally and she is just this badass gung Ho woman that really, really cares about preserving what we have in the west and I think that's awesome. And so growing up in that environment, of course I was like, well, I hate people. So what is the easiest thing that I can do that revolves not really revolves around not really interacting with them too much and journalism kind of came to the forefront. And so when I moved to America, I really wanted to pursue being able to bring ideas to people that they might not otherwise have access to in like a fuller

There Are No Signs to Back Mandates for Truckers
"There's no signs to back this mandate certainly any more if ever but certainly anymore In Canada the United States are anywhere else there is nothing to back this up You have American Marxist Democrat party mares as radical as they come lifting mandates you have the moron that runs New Jersey the governor there Murphy lifting mandates everybody's lifting mandates except Canada on the truckers And here in the United States even in the thick of it Biden did not impose the mandates on the truckers Remember that mister producer He realized that you know the truckers really do things that we need done The trackers in the illegal aliens of course you know but that said there's nothing to support this any more than masks one little kids in elementary school and the CDC in this country says they're going to continue to do it And I hope the parents in this country continue to rise up and protect their children
NJ State Sen. Ed Durr: New Jersey Voted Blue but the State Is Not Blue
"So as a guy who's very familiar with New Jersey politics it's a state that's trended pretty far left over the years not as much as New York but not that far behind And do you sense a change on the ground center You sense a change on the ground now given how close the gubernatorial election was with Phil Murphy where he barely barely won that election You sense the tide turning is that the parents and the schools the school stuff the mandates I mean your thoughts being there and living it now almost full time Well yeah absolutely the tide has changed but I do want to just point out you said it was a very deep blue state We voted blue but I don't feel the state is blue I think we're kind of more of a purplish almost a red slant because if you really look at where the boats come from it's on the 95 corridor and it's usually the big cities that are blue while the outskirts are red But yeah the tide is definitely changing we have seen the anger in the parents especially with the mask and the schools When governor Murphy had closed our schools his master children but then you see the hypocrisy I'll just give you a point of reference right after the election They have a thing called the league of municipalities that meets down in Atlantic City after every election And I went down there you know everybody wanted to meet me which this is part of the thing that I didn't expect the fanfare about my win But when we went down there oh I was arm in arm and with Democrats too So the hypocrisy of them forcing children to wear masks who are the least vulnerable as we both know But then turn around and run around arm and arm and know wearing no mask So you know it's all about politics
The Hypocrisy of Democrats Lifting Mask Mandates While Media Reports High Death Rates
"There's a Washington Post headline, deaths are at the highest point they've ever been. So in what universe would suddenly a governor say, well, let's lift the restrictions. Let's do away with the COVID restrictions. If the deaths are high and rising, oh, it must be political. So you weren't really ever serious about protecting people from COVID. Right, governor Murphy? I mean, the hypocrisy is so obvious they're trying to now they're trying to rewrite history. They're going to claim that Biden crushed the virus. That's going to be hard to reconcile with The Washington Post headline I have in front of me. That says deaths are rising. It's stunning to witness in real time. The destruction of a political party.
NJ Gov. Phil Murphy Held Focus Groups Over COVID Mask Mandates
"Anyway New Jersey governor Phil Murphy on Monday Decided to change all of his mask mandates and say yeah we've turned the corner were coming out of this and of course it's not the science Of course it's not science other than political science of course Katy pavage points out that a saw hill kapur journalist for NBC News political reporter not a science reporter I don't know political reporter Points out this article in The New York Times Quoting now mister Murphy's advisers were struck by the findings Of a focus group across the board voters shared frustrations over public health measures a sense of pessimism about the future and a deep desire to return to some sense of normalcy so they conducted focus groups My Friends Focus The office of the governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy actually had to spend I'd love to know if it was government money tax dollars on this focus group or if it came from his campaign but they spent money on a focus group to find out how voters were feeling about the mandates after two years Really Really you need to have a focus group on that and that even worse when the focus group comes in and says yeah they're frustrated and they have pessimism about the future and they want to get out of this and get back to normal This is the worst part Bad part number one they actually had to conduct a focus group Bad part number two mister Murphy's advisers were struck by the findings They were struck by the findings They're shocked to hear that you're sick and tired of this
Kevin McCullough on Blue State Governors Easing Mask Requirements
"Where my guest right now on a gigantic screen so large that I can see his pores, although I will make no reference to them, our friend, Kevin McCullough. Kevin, welcome to the program. Hey, Eric, good to see you. You're so huge. We're doing this new technological technological thing here. We're just testing it out. You don't mind being the giganto Guinea pig. Do you? No, that's just comes with the territory. Exactly. Exactly. Well, listen, most people listen to this program. I know you as votes are done. But today we're just going to talk to Kevin. So Kevin, I have been talking today with Leon fontaine, who's a pastor in Canada talking about the truckers and the situation going on up there. I want to talk to you about what's going on here in the United States, which is not exactly unrelated to what's going on up there. So what's on your mind? Well, so I think that we saw some progress this week. Let me just turn the clock back a couple of days. You had a series of blue state governors all in a kind of a sequence with each other, do something remarkable. So governor Phil Murphy came out the governor of the state in New Jersey. He said that on March 7th, he's lifting the mask mandates for the schools, staff, students, teachers, everyone involved masks off march 7th, to which most parents said, yay, thank you. It's way too long. Why do we have to wait another month? And then later that day. You idiot. Did they take that out of the memo? I think they did. But then later that day, you had the chief of all devil in gubernatorial offices right now. Governor Gavin Newsom himself come out and say, you know what? We're doing so well in California. We're going to take masks off on the 28th of February. And I've often argued that California should be sought off from the continent and pushed into the ocean left to fend for itself. I actually applaud the governor applied California. This is going to be a great thing. Their kids are going to get to get to go to some back to some sort of normalcy for their
New Jersey and Delaware Democrat Governors Are Lifting Mask Mandates
"You see the picture of Barack Obama? His big mansion in Hawaii is being built. He's out there with all the construction workers. Now they have the toughest some of the toughest mask mandates in the world in Hawaii. You know, that is an island nation. They don't want people bringing COVID they say, and they don't want to spread there, they say. So you got to wear your mask. But not if you're Barack Obama. But look at this. Democrat governors are starting to abandon the Biden administration on school mask mandates. Do tell what's happening here. Apparently, the New Jersey and Delaware governors, both Democrats are lifting mask mandates I mean Murphy was a Democrat so ardently for the mandates, he called anyone who opposed them knuckleheads. But now, looks like Murphy's cave in like a he's folding like a cheap camera.

Dr. Pierre Kory and Dr. Chris Martenson on Ivermectin and a Potential Cover-Up
"We now know from a document from project veritas that major Joe Murphy and the darpa document page four wrote that Ivermectin works throughout all phases of the illness because it both inhibits viral replication and modulates the immune response, things that you've been talking about. This document was hidden in a secret folder. Does that make either of you think that they've known that Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine works this entire time from the top levels and are we witnessing a cover up? Well, we know that hydroxychloroquine is actually in an NIH paper around original SAAR. So classic SARS comes out in 2002 and three. By 2005, there was a paper out from NIH researchers saying hydroxychloroquine is an effective potent inhibitor of this, at least in an in vitro setting and also a mouse model, I believe. So they knew that. They knew that early on. And if you look at the so I call the, you know, this repurposed drug war. So this PR campaign on Ivermectin, the war and I have met in 2021. If, you know, the fact that they waged that war in 2020 through these fraudulent research studies fraudulent papers mentions the YouTube you could talk about. That can be explained by the fact infectious best explained by the fact they knew it

Michael J. O'Loughlin Previews His New Book, 'Hidden Mercy'
"C. S. Lewis said that if you could see grief and it was colored black that the world would be wreathed in black from space. Do you believe that to be the case of the country and the aids crisis? It was a pretty grim time. Like you said in the intro, like I wrote about in the book, it was a time when people were not only suffering, but they were being ignored by so many parts of society government pharmaceutical the church generally. And there weren't a lot of moments for hope, but what I tried to do was profile those individuals who were stepping up and doing the right thing. So there was a lot of grief and darkness, but there were people who for many reasons and in my case I profiled Catholic remote by their face who said we have to do something step top and love their neighbor as they were called to do by the gospel. That's why I think it is very timely. We're going to be dealing with long COVID for a long time, and we're going to be dealing with the deaths of despair and people who are lonely and isolated. But sister Carolyn, sister Mary Allen and Bellevue Illinois, sister Patrice Murphy and New York, father, Bill mcnichols in New York, father, Tony Maguire and San Francisco. You've got a legion of heroes in this book. So tell me why you wrote it. You're a young man. Why did you go back and find all those people who are my age? Yes, so I'm in my 30s and I've been reporting on the Catholic Church and politics and religion in the United States for about a decade. And I really didn't know any of the story. And it was important to me because I'm a religion reporter. I'm also a gay man and I was intrigued by this relatively recent history that just wasn't taught. I didn't learn it from my family. I didn't learn it in schools. I certainly didn't learn to church. And I realized that there was this vast wealth of information from people who were 20, 30 years older than me, that just hadn't been passed down. And I thought there's all this collected wisdom and insight that I think is applicable to all people. A part of our history. And I wanted to capture it before it was too late. And some of the lessons in mercy talk about why it's important to step up and do the right thing. Even if society isn't quite there yet, even if society is pregnant a lot of shame and stigma and people like sister Carol and other Bill really were confident in their belief that they were called to serve their neighbors and they did so through heroic means and with a sense of great humility at the same time.
U.S. Surgeon General urges vaccines, boosters
"Was coping nineteen cases spiking along with an increase in corona virus hospitalizations officials continue to urge the un vaccinated to get a shot as covert infections rise in some states across the country Surgeon General the Vic Murphy is warning of an uptick link to the winter season and cold weather where more people are indoors he's reiterating the need to get vaccinated and get boosters if available baxeen Sylvania high degree protection especially as a worse outcomes of coded like hospitalization and death he made the comments on fox news Sunday with Chris Wallace where he was asked about people who refuse to get the vaccine like Aaron Rodgers twelve freedom is absolutely important we also have a collective responsibility to one another when our decisions impact the health and well being of others the also says that the court ultimately blocks the Biden administrations vaccine mandate for private businesses it would be a setback for public health I'm Julie Walker
Is the Biden Regime Persecuting an Opposition Journalist?
"So James O'Keefe has been very effective. The New York Post has a great story on this. They say the sure looks like Biden's Department of Justice is persecuting and opposition journalist. James O'Keefe is the most effective journalist that we have on the right, whether it be VAERS database information, whether it be exposing critical race theory in our schools or people that are whistleblowing, James O'Keeffe has been a thorn in the side of the regime for quite some time. FBI and Manhattan federal prosecutors are investigating the case of Ashley Biden's diary. The president daughters said it was stolen in a burglary last year an obscure right wing website found a publishing it would at satyr pages are from about ten days before the election. Now, I'm not going to get into the alleged contents of the diary. But there's some pretty creepy stuff in this diary. Let me just say some really weird stuff. According to all public reports, and what's interesting, again, which no one has been able to explain at all is what federal crime in the U.S. code is worthy of FBI agents going after this. So just so you understand the priorities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. By the way, are we watching for that press conference with Merrick Garland right now? As soon as you hear the DOJ come out, then they say they're gonna do a press conference on a significant political matter. Say, hold on a second. What's going on here? Not so fast, my Friends. That's something that should worry a lot of people. Not the overreach of government. But this is a pattern of tyrants and autocrats, which is to silence political dissidents. It's nothing new. It's the habit of the tyrant to want to suffocate opposing ideas, especially journalists. And James O'Keefe is the most effective among them. James O'Keefe went after governor Murphy and exposed his regime for what he was doing in New Jersey and I think largely tightened the New Jersey governor's race. James O'Keeffe has been relentless, and he has been effective. And because of that, he's at the top list of the Federal Bureau of Investigation executing, a search warrant against

But you're obviously directly involved in advocating for this. Where does this bill stan. And what did you make of the hearing that occurred earlier this week.

"So let's get to. What what we heard from kathy hotel in a few minutes. But let's go back a little bit. Because i think a lot of listeners here on the show and many new yorkers are getting up to speed on heavy hoaglund. You are too perfect people to help us do that. So bob you've been with the buffalo news for a long time. You've covered capi hokkaido for a long time. Can you give us sort of a brief rundown of her political career. Sure kathy. Hogan has been very much a mainstay of the erie county political scene. For many years she started out She started out. Interestingly enough as kind of a insider in the democratic party organization of joke rangel who was kind of a legendary party bus here for twenty three years from let's see nineteen sixty three to About nineteen Eighty six and she was part of that staff of his part of the the krankl Organization and came up in that. She eventually went on to work for congressman. John falls in washington. Senator daniel patrick moynihan in washington. After she got her law degree from syria from catholic you and after graduating from syracuse. You then She gets starting politics as you know. Just as the real local level on the hamburg town board and she kinda made a name for herself there by working to end Tolls on the niagara portion of the throughway and she also She also then went on to a become deputy county clerk she ran was and was elected as county clerk really made a name for herself. There and Went ahead and when. Chris lee resigned from congress. She won a seat in the house of representatives at significantly in a very republican district. Then lost when chris collins beat her in twenty twelve went into the private sector for awhile. Chosen as governor cuomo's running mate and the rest of history are. Thank you thank you bob and bob. What would you say in terms of what people should know about sort of kathy hobos political perspective or orientation. Is there a way. You'd sort of categorize how she where she falls on the political spectrum or how she sees politics approaches to pop approaches politics. She certainly has earned reputation as a moderate democrat. But you know. I don't know how moderate she is. I think she promised today and her In her first press conference that she would be pushing for a very aggressive agenda. That governor cuomo has pushed. Some people would say governor cuomo's not progressive enough. So i think you might be able to took question or annette. But by the same token she emphasized today that she would Be promoting progressive agenda And i think that she has represented that throughout her. Time as lieutenant governor. She certainly has morphed into a much more liberal politician that she was Than in her conservative democrat days when she was running for county clerk and remember running representing the very republican district that she did In kind of the area the suburban area between buffalo and rochester. Back in those days. So i think you could call her. You know. she's right there with governor cuomo on her stand on many of these things and you know. I don't think there should be any real difference from the governor on that score and grunwald of political new york. You've written quite a bit about kathy hoax. Time as lieutenant governor feel free to jump in with anything you wanna add what to a bob said of course but but when it comes to how she's approached the role of lieutenant governor what should what should people know kathy..

"We can also say now that we are either completely certain or almost certain about a number of other democratic nominees germany williams of public advocate. Who will be my guest later on in. This show is clearly going to be. The democratic nominee again for public advocate will very likely win reelection. Brad lander who looked very strong in the democratic comptroller primary has won their speaker cory. Johnson of the city council has conceded that race. He came in second to lander who will be the democratic nominee and very likely the next city controller in the borough president races antonio reinoso winning the democratic nomination in brooklyn vanessa gibson in the bronx mark levin in manhattan mark murphy on staten island. He will have a competitive general election against former congressman. Vito for sela there and in queens incumbent queensboro president donovan richards holding onto a slight lead over former city council. Member elizabeth crowley. It looks like richard's will win that democratic nomination and very likely remain queensboro present but there could be some more counting of ballots there and even potentially recount depending on how things shake out in queens and of course alvin brag the democratic nominee for manhattan district attorney in one of the most important races of the cycle. We had album brag on Just after the primary to talk about his lead. He has won that primary for manhattan. Da is almost certain to be the next manhattan district attorney and the first black manhattan district attorney at that. So those are the borough wide citywide democratic nominees. All of them heavily heavily favored to win. In the general elections there will be some competition in those general elections for the fall but in overwhelming democratic new york city. It's very likely all the democratic nominees except the staten island. Borough president race Where the republican will be favored. There will prevail but we will of course examine the candidates and continue to cover the racist through the general election. And see where we're at so joining me in. Just a few moments will be bob heart of spectrum news in new york one to break down the results as we have them of the race for mayor and later in the show.

I would come up to enjoy the process because i would get wrapped up in you know achieving and and making sure.

I did with three of my really good friends which we all had the same studio building and so that was like it was just fun because i got to be around my friends and I was like a really good experience. And then the second did was the oprah mural which is on in the west loop if chicago which is on green street in between madison in one row. And yes that. I didn't know any of the artists going into it but it was a good experience because i i got to learn a lot about how other mural painters work which you know i didn't you know firsthand experience i didn't really know side learned a few things and just go to meet some really good artists and make some new friends so that was a good experience.

"Episode five an irish devils hole by our w murphy brother other joe decided to ignore the advice of his older wiser sibling. He concluded that he needed to go downstairs and have a chat with the four or of them. His intent was probably pure sharing our adventures of the day with them rationalizing. Our lateness were noble. Objectives lives conversely. I just knew without the least reservation that it was a really bad mistake. He ignored my <hes> warnings for me. I chose the avoidance strategy. I mentioned and headed to bed with the book that had been the proximate cause of the entire entire course of events i plan to face the music a few hours later knowing that joe had become a self destructive lightning rod and might consume most the ringer before then that being the case. I never really saw what joe actually did that night but i can conjure up what has to be a reasonable facsimile in my mind fairly easily. There are two living witnesses joe and my dad but neither either are talking at this point picture my mom sitting there with to a very good friends in front of whom she would become mortified by two of her sons behaviors bad enough right now picture joe coming down the stairs looking like a survivor from the battle of gettysburg leesburg and talking ragtime bloody dirty torn trousers drunk somewhat incoherent flying solo without his partner in crime any attempt on his part to explain away. The events were subsumed by my parents horror. You're just at the sight alone. The backs did not matter the friends new to they listen to jo's rant for a bit but having thank figuratively held my parents hand during what had been a long night in mourning their job was done the boys were home safely and what was to to happen next was between the murphy's not them they tactfully bid goodbyes and we're out of there as quickly as decorum when wouldn't allow what i did not know at that point is what part of the whole thing with most upset my mother with the continuum running from rudeness rudeness due to the late hour to carnage joe's physical state. My guess is that it was not long. After the guests had left the my folk's sorted joe to his room and they shut down have become a form of situation room for the last six seven hours going to bed themselves elves. Yes i had voided the direct confrontation however i probably had not factored in the simmering anger of an irish mother cou perceived her cubs to be a mortal danger especially one of them several hours later when i woke up with the obligatory hangover commensurate answer it with a prior days partaking and went downstairs from my bedroom to the first floor. I expected to have to start some serious explaining. It was not required. The house was abandoned. Mother father in joe were all gone the last being as culpable as myself itself. I figured they must have just mercifully. Let me sleep in if he had walked away relatively unscathed at seems it's the consequences would be minor. His skit of a few hours ago would never have been enough to indemnify him. We both must be safe. I was so very wrong again. Instead of a cool down period i had just given my mother enough time to build up a head of steam something in my entire life i only seen a couple of times and hardly ever towards me personally in the present case she had clearly drawn a straight great line from lucifer to me while somehow failing to indict her youngest son the charges were not clearly levied the punishment certainly was she had removed my stocking from where the others hung and left a note there that in so many words said that i had forfeited my invitation to enjoy christmas in her home a pariah in my own mother's home wow she in my dad and brother joe had all gone for the day to my mom sister's house a few towns over about ten miles away standing there alone. I realized that there were no presence with my name on them under the tree. If she had left the stocking up filled mine to the top with an irish doubles those coal she would not have been able to cut any more excruciating way to my heart yet. I couldn't understand how or why i was being singled singled out for such extraordinary treatment joe had been as bad or worse than me but he seemed to have gotten a pardon. I was soon to find out why the array of transgressions was brought. Indeed however the one that's utterly enraged. Mrs murphy would hardly have been on my radar head. I tried to discern the source. The conundrum was solved for me a few hours later. It was not the early morning our it was not the we had left to worry. It was not the embarrassment in front of her friends. It was not the bloodied countenances. Let's have joe coming down the stairs. No it was the short drive from oak grove station to her house. In fact was even more narrow arrow. It was the fact that i as the eldest had allowed my younger brother to get behind the wheel. When we were both clearly seriously impaired haired the fairness of this one-sided indictment notwithstanding implicit in her logic was it. I as the eldest had some degree of control roll over joe after he tumbled down the stairs at oak grove. Nothing is far from the truth. I could not have dissuaded him from driving no matter how strong my argument in addition possession being the operative consideration he had the car keys from earlier in the evening very hypothetically late we possibly could have argued to a stalemate and maybe taken a cab from the station to her house but that would have assumed a level of sober contemplation relation far beyond the reality of the situation who would also have required some means of communication in the wee hours with a cab company. Hey which inner by itself would have been problematic in the presell bone world any counter arguments by me were futile concluding her position -sition my mother's argumentative kudarat what's so simple. It was indefensible. She told me that as the oldest it was just my responsibility ability period no matter how much culpability rightly rested with my brother as the oldest i would serve the time so order the judge at least the only one mattered in her house so what to do. I doubt it my mother would be able to hold the punishment line in a a public setting. Although i'll kantor she had already shown behavior that day that did not resemble what i knew to be her core personality analogy she had been on an labral tear. Just a few hours earlier facing her would still be a role of the dice. There was another it to remain factor my mom's sister sheila had always been somewhat doting on me. It probably stemmed from when she lived with my family a. and her early twenties and i was a sort of surrogate younger brother to her. I was pretty sure that there would not be a united front there. It would be harder if my mother to make a scene if she was so inclined. I also knew my mother would not be the really vindictive or confrontational hopper. Take the type of person once she had vented her splaine by removing the stocking and writing the note she would inevitably be looking for a way to be more conciliatory without however losing face on the underlying issue that continued to burn for long time somewhat like a smoldering smoldering peat bog wildfire the takes a winter's followed snow before it can be extinguished. I also had a pacifier of sorts. It's i still had the book we had towed it all through boston. The prior day. It was still a great present with all that quasi logic in mind signed. I cleaned up and hopped in a second car. My parents had at the house and made the drive to sheila's house. This car had seen much better days. Ace was more reserved vehicle than daily drive yet. Even with a loose steering linkage a questionable breaks as successfully navigated through through a few small massachusetts towns until i got there about noon. Sheila lived in the small town which had grown up before moving to florida. I knew the route well and episode five an irish devils coal by our w murphy..

"Episode three and irish devils coal by our w murphy the bar area was a relatively large open space joe and i set they're chatting with the bartender her. The woman with a child was kind of huddled off in a corner on the opposite side of the room at about eleven thirty pm. I i felt tug at my elbow. It was the lady with the child in her arms. I was surprised by her approach but even more surprised allies but what she had to say. There were never any introductions between all of us. She may have been listening to our conversation with the bartender. Whatever made her feel. We were safe. It was still odd when she told joe in may that she was going to midnight church service nearby and asked asked if we would go with her and her child there are three or four charge within reasonable walking distance of that corner beacon street the catholic cathedral would probably have been more a cab ride than a walk with babe in arms as padre today. It seems to me see that is what she had in mind but it could have been one of the other closer churches. The actual church is moot. We were hardly in the churchgoing mindset sits. It was now after eleven thirty. I told her that the best plan was for her to go ahead without us us and we would meet her at the church shortly. I hope she did not reserve space in a pew for us because we never showed the services is a cheers at midnight seem to fulfil our spiritual needs just fine right about then again in retrospect a sawyer woman with babe in arms seemingly alone on a dark christmas eve night asking for the companionship of strangers was it a lifeline highflying being thrown by opposing forces to data the fallen angels who had been guiding has so far had we accepted her invitation with the balance of our trip turned out differently to the former most would only say who knows although others more inclined with swear very clearly a sign to the latter question. There's actually very little to ponder by spurning that must approach. We likely made the next few hours virtually inevitable. We were not aware but clearly chosen a side. Since we were the only customers in the place he was willing to keep serving as gratis just to keep him company until his closing time which was a few hours off still in a brief moment of lucidity and realizing it had now actually become christmas per se hey we opted to decline his generosity and began our egress back. Out of boston was only about twelve thirty a m late late but reasonably explainable to our parents. It was hardly the first time we had partied together and being m._i._a. For a few ours wouldn't cause too much concern even so it was somewhat rude that we didn't call tell them always okay. I knew knew it would not be all roses when we got back but it was really a small san and no one would want to make bigger christmas day besides we have been successful at securing the president of all presence from the publishers rep again the beer logic having now been made more a found by scotch logic allowed me to rationalize away how my mother might react to her eldest child and her youngest child trial leaving her to worry for hours. I was pretty sure it was a survivable faux pas on our part however there we're still more advanced to unfold that night that caused that conclusion to be far off the mark. I said earlier earlier. The part of this story is missing in my mind. It starts about here some my call it a blackout drunk. I personally don't think it rises to that diagnosis. However what is absolutely undeniable is that roughly twelve thirty a._m. to one thirty a._m. December twenty five nineteen eighty five is not recorded anywhere in my memory banks <music> as much as i have strained recall that our it is indeed missing apparently ad infinitum what makes the missing missing our the lynch pin of this entire story is that as navigator on our jot it was up to me to find a way from a barstool a cheers to a warm cozy bed fifteen miles out in the suburbs joe had no experience with the subway system and i wrote out would not be exactly backtracking the one which again none of the nearest t. stations were the one we're used earlier in the morning. All i recall is telling joe as we exited cheers that we had to find the park street station on the opposite side of boston common. I knew from experience that most of the lines intersected there. That's pretty much when the lights go wild for me is also where seated might navigation duties to joe however my mother would shortly and for many years thereafter have more to say on that subject it seems that the eldest sibling cannot abdicate delegate or otherwise fail failed to fulfil his her familial duties regardless of cause our motivation my attempted justification for the advance. Let's there were soon to unfold proved to be lame. Indeed leading a younger brother into temptation no matter how slight that temptation <unk> by be from his pre temptation dispositions was a mortal sin in the murphy slant mckinney psyche as i soon to find out maybe not really fair but something there was hardly debatable in my mother's house at christmas to get had to park street station from that corner of beacon street. We have to cross diagonally. I the public gardens and then the comments. The two points joints are at opposite corners clearly reeling from the early afternoon and nights to botch. We must have looked like a couple of hoodlums at twelve twelve thirty in the morning. It is somewhat amazing to me that we did not have a more intimate discussion with boston p._d. Cop that night as we headed to park street on the other hand. I'm really not sure that we did not have that discussion. Somehow with joe now elevated elevated to navigator. We're able to find the park street t. station even less probable but true inside the station we we were able to find the orange line the umbilical cord to the suburbs with all the various lines connecting there wasn't an intuitively italy obvious task in our state following directional signs for the orange line platform through the stations. Maze was hardly any easier yet somehow we did. I have made some guesses since as we did a rolling simmons ms walk across the parks me with a huge book we probably were spotted at stopped by law officer of some sort dr joe was likely able to tell him or her why we were out and where we were attempting to head collaring a coupla glove loaded young tourists on christmas morning was likely pretty low on his or her priority list and since we were clearly not a threat and heading out of town gave us a pass with a little directional assist from a cop making it to the park street station. Shen was a lot easier. I don't know how joe would have vowed otherwise by this point. I was built logger any help once in the station. I am not sure that joe would have known to even look the orange line indeed the town to which we're actually going was not the line at all joe would have had to know to look for grove station on one of the lines again guessing here. It is likely that either a subway employees are good. Samaritan pointed us in the right direction after we told them the tau we were trying to reach this was in the days of coined light tokens not metro cards that could have been the person from whom we purchase them who guided us in the final analysis joe found the orange line with oak grove as its final stop after meandering through the bowels of bosses most complex subway station for a while and by itself somewhat of a christmas miracle. The fact that i still had possession of the book was a second second miracle at this point it would appear that lucifer might have been loosening his grip. Don't be so deceived. His whole was never diminished that will become clear shortly and episode episode three and irish devils coal by our w murphy..

"Episode three and irish devils coal by our w murphy the bar area was a relatively large open space joe and i set they're chatting with the bartender her. The woman with a child was kind of huddled off in a corner on the opposite side of the room at about eleven thirty pm. I i felt tug at my elbow. It was the lady with the child in her arms. I was surprised by her approach but even more surprised allies but what she had to say. There were never any introductions between all of us. She may have been listening to our conversation with the bartender. Whatever made her feel. We were safe. It was still odd when she told joe in may that she was going to midnight church service nearby and asked asked if we would go with her and her child there are three of four churches within reasonable walking distance of that corner beacon street the catholic cathedral would probably have been more a cab ride than walk with babe in arms as padre today. It seems to me see that is what she had in mind but it could have been one of the other closer churches. The actual church is moot. We were hardly in the church-going mindset sits. It was now after eleven thirty. I told her that the best plan was for her to go ahead without us us and we would meet her at the church shortly. I hope she did not reserve space in a pew for us because we never showed the services is a cheers at midnight seem to fulfil our spiritual needs just fine right about then again in retrospect a sawyer woman with babe in arms seemingly alone on a dark christmas eve night asking for the companionship of strangers was it a lifeline highflying being thrown by opposing forces to data the fallen angels who had been guiding has so far had we accepted her invitation with the balance of our trip turned out differently to the former most would only say who knows although others more inclined would swear very clearly a sign to the latter question. There's actually very little to ponder by spurning that mess approach. We likely made the next few hours virtually inevitable. We were not aware but clearly chosen a side. Since we were the only customers in the place he was willing to keep serving as gratis just to keep him company until his closing time which was a few hours off still in a brief moment of lucidity and realizing it had now actually become christmas per se hey we opted to decline his generosity and began our egress back. Out of boston was only about twelve thirty a m late late but reasonably explainable to our parents. It was hardly the first time we had partied together and being m._i._a. For a few ours wouldn't cause too much concern even so it was somewhat rude that we didn't call tell them always okay. I knew knew it would not be all roses when we got back but it was really a small san and no one would want to make bigger christmas day besides we have been successful at securing the president of all presence from the publishers rep again the beer logic having now been made more found by scotch logic allowed me to rationalize away how my mother might react to her eldest child and her youngest child gal leaving her to worry for hours. I was pretty sure it was a survivable faux pas on our part however there we're still more advanced to unfold that night that caused that conclusion to be far off the mark. I said earlier earlier. The part of this story is missing in my mind. It starts about here some my call it a blackout drunk. I personally don't think it rises to that diagnosis. However what is absolutely undeniable is that roughly twelve thirty a._m. to one thirty a._m. December twenty five nineteen eighty five is not recorded anywhere in my memory banks <music> as much as i have strained recall that our it is indeed missing apparently ad infinitum what makes the missing missing our the lynch pin of this entire story is that as navigator on our jot it was up to me to find a way from a barstool a cheers to a warm cozy bed fifteen miles out in the suburbs joe had no experience with the subway system and i wrote out would not be exactly backtracking the one which again none of the nearest t. stations were the one we're used earlier in the morning. All i recall is telling joe as we exited cheers that we had to find the park street station on the opposite side of boston common. I knew from experience that most of the lines intersected there..

"Elected office versus limited experience in management, or advocacy or government, or whatever it might be. But it is interesting to see this field. You know, it's it's good incense that it's been narrowed a bit, you know, two couple of forums that I've moderated and some other things that I've tuned into, you know, there are a few candidates there that really distracted from a more substantive discussion. So hopefully at some of these forums and certainly in the two televised debates. We should have some pretty good substantive discussion. You know, Ben Ye is an interesting candidate and interesting player in the scene because as I indicated in the final question he indicated with talking about his resume. This is someone who's been in politics, but also about civic engagement. He's worked very hard and engaging people to run for county committee, which is something most New Yorkers still. I'm sure don't know exists. You know, and he'd be a very interesting person if he's not victorious in this race. Which obviously the odds are against him for the next public advocate to look at to potentially bring into the office of he'd be interested in that. But the type of civic engagement that he's talking about in the work that he's done. You know, it's interesting to hear someone like that jump into a race in and talk about that work and Jared rich, you know, doing the type of legal work. He says he's done again is the type of work that you know, has lent itself at least for Letitia James to how you. She's tried to use the office as a bit of a law firm. So, you know, interesting to see people with different backgrounds jump into the fear sphere. You know, be interesting to see someone like Jerry rich perhaps run for a local city council seat or something like that next time around now that he's may be got the bug. So a couple of minutes left here. Amac's Murphy some of the questions we didn't get to earlier interesting story this week is this little feud brewing between archbishop Timothy Dolan cardinal Dolan and governor Cuomo over the child victims act and the reproductive health act question to you Ben does that feud hold any danger for the governor is neck and fester. And is that does that pose a threat to him? I don't think so, you know, there are certainly some controversial stances and statements that the governor has made over his tenure, you know, perhaps this will be marked as one in terms of potentially alienating some voters. I think probably much more. So with the child victims act than. Than with the reproductive health act. But also think that popular opinion more broadly is clearly with the governor on these issues. And I also have a tendency to think that anywhere near the next time. Governor Cuomo might be on a ballot. If he's ever on a ballot. Again, a lot of this will be in the past by then, and you know, things come back up that opponents might use against you people might remember some of this that didn't like it. But I think generally speaking, he's doing things that at least the polls show and commonsense, I think dictates our make a lot of sense of a you. I agree. And I think we now come to the part of the show or shamelessly promote stuff on our own websites and force our listeners to go read it not much homework this week. I'm gonna suggest they check out on our site. Ghana's rezoning plan is emerged today. I official plan and we have an update on that. So I would definitely go check that out Ben on your site to things all highlight one. We just published this afternoon sort of a. List of the ten burning questions that are in the air and in the atmosphere after governor Cuomo outlined, his two thousand nineteen agenda. We sort of took in all the feedback and things that have happened since the governor gave his state of the state speech, and we've boiled it down to ten burning questions. And the other thing is we published a deep dive into how some local businesses are reacting to the new fifteen dollar minimum wage that employers have to pay their employees, and and sort of looking at the various issues involved with the new minimum wage. So you've been listening to max and Murphy, Reggie Johnson is at the controls for indie does our theme. Song back next Wednesday at five until then have a great week. Go patriots..

"And then, you know, maybe there's some of these other candidates that you would maybe including the top tier you'd say they're in a in a second tier some the other city council members running like donnas Rodriguez or Rafael Espinel, you know, who knows? I mean, it's just it's hard to predict, but at least based on some of the fundraising some of the name recognition like we said, maybe some of the areas where people have their geographic basis in the city. You know, you sort of try to group them a little bit. But it's it's a very hard race to predict the think after his Lieutenant governor campaign and. All the votes he God. And now some of the endorsements in such for Jimani Williams. You know, I think he's widely seen as the favourite in this race. So we mentioned already that we had the Amazon hearing today, and that's just one of several pieces of political news that we should probably talk about another big one involving Brooklyn is the passing of former district. Attorney Charles Joe Hynes, obviously a controversial figure at the end of his public career of societas with over policing and prosecutions that ended up not holding up to scrutiny sometimes decades and multiple decades later, but a person who earlier career was up a noted as a progressive who developed turned to incarceration, a very complex legacy that had you know, kind of sad end he passed away today. So that is a significant departure guy who ran for mayor was I think fire Commissioner sort of one of those big names in New York City politics for for several decades in the shadow is more recently. But but now now now gone, and I'll just briefly say, you know, his legacy is. Still something that's being wrestle with because some of the convictions under his tenure still being overturned. And there's still as you said some of that some of those question marks from later in his tenure that were really became stark, and led to his losing to now the late also can Thomson and a lot of a legacy there that really needs a lot of breaking down. And we'll be as his obituaries are written. You mentioned city council speaker, Cory Johnson currently acting public advocate. We have a few more minutes here until we're joined by public advocate candidate Ben Ye hoping to shocked the world and be the next public advocate..

"Last question, Jill, you know, you wrote something from Puerto Rico, which again is before this sort of flurry of announcements from the mayor and him know maybe coming into this new year with a little bit of a perhaps a resolution to become more relevant again. And maybe. Your piece from Puerto Rico that he was sort of on the sidelines of a lot of conversation. And the obviously there is the big vanishing mayor piece in the times. Maybe those things also got to him a bid and Corey Johnson's profile skyrocketing. But he obviously has this very new dynamic in Albany that he's also dealing with like the rest of us in New York. But he's he's the mayor. Do you have any thoughts on sort of you know, how that might go for him or what to watch for their how you're thinking about that, you know, session, obviously kicked off in Albany today and actions really gonna get going there next week. What are you looking for in terms of the mayor and the Albany scene? I think the mayor benefits from a, you know, more progressive Democratic's than it. There's no doubt about that. Whether he's at the high end of his influence or not I you know, it kinda remains to be seen. He's not only had a ton of political capital up there in due to them prior misstep in his sort of failed efforts in the past flip the state Senate. But you know, time has caught up, and he's gone Democratic Senate now, whether those there is want to do the same things as he does is another question. I don't really expect it we're going to see them, you know, rallying behind the millionaire's tax on the subway. Right. Or any of these other things if he's really struggled with in the past it seems like his relationship with the governor's on slightly better footing. But that's always open to change at pretty much any moment battles. I think one of the big battles will be the MTA. Funding. 'cause I I don't think either side wants to give you know, which might remind the another funding battle going on right now in the nation's capital. But I I'm curious to see what will happen there. And I'm curious to see how he manages to work with the new the new members, and whether you know, he didn't endorse all of them, right? He didn't really get involved a lot in the in the election. And it'll it'll be interesting to see how he tries to cozy up some of those people now. Well, it state of the city eve. So you probably have lots of preparations traditional dishes decorations to get up. So we're gonna let it go. But thank you very much.

"No community engagement whatsoever. Leaving out the elected officials in the community. I think that was disgusting. That is not an example of a transparent good government. And that's not what New Yorkers wanna see. So, you know, I'm not against Masada us, Amazon all the time. I think most New Yorkers are probably customers of Amazon, and they appreciate the fact that they're going to create these jobs, but giving tax breaks away and return without any community engagement or input from from the other stakeholders in Long Island city, and in queens in general. I think was a big mistake. And it's going to come back to haunt the mayor. So we have time for one more question about sixty seconds of this. I'm curious looking at your predecessors, Mark green. If you are elected public, advocate, Marguerite, obviously ran for mayor and successfully Bill the Blasios ran successfully tips James now as their state attorney general office, the office is viewed as a stepping-stone that could be a plus gives you buzz. It could be a minus. It's going to, you know, cast everything you do if you're elected in that in that lens. What will you say about that? If you. Our elected in terms of your future ambitions, are you critiquing a mayor whom you hope to succeed someday. I mean, look Mark rain was a thorn in the side to Rudy Giuliani, and Betsy Gotbaum and Bill de Blasios. I think that heck of a job driving, Mike, Bloomberg nuts. I think if you ask mayor de Blasio who the last person he'd want to win the special election as I bet any amount of money. He says it's me because I believe that I I know how to I really know how to get to him. But the point is the public advocate needs to be a check on a mayor can't be a rubber stamp, mayor de Blasio fired his deal. Why Commissioner because Commissioner Peters was exposing a lot of waste and fraud and abuse in administration in particular agencies. I don't think the mayor like the fact that he was getting too close to city hall. And I think the mayor right now is trying to cherry pick and figure out which one of the Democrats on race. He wants to be a watchdog over him. So he can try to exert influence over that person too. So I think that for the sake. Of how the office was set up in the charter, and what New Yorkers wanna see quite frankly, I think that I'm the best person for the job. And that's why I'm asking for everyone. Support him February twenty six. City council member Eric Oldrich running for public, advocate and the special election. Thanks for joining us here on WBAI, and we will talk with you soon. Thank you so much happy new year. Happy new year. Take care. We're back on that Zimmer fy for some parting thoughts, Ben we've just been talking about public advocates race state of the city. Obviously looking at those over the coming week. We just published an update on where they're mayors rezoning stand. We'll have an article coming out later this week about Amazon's lobbying record here and elsewhere what you have coming up. Well, we just published a pretty in depth article on Corey Johnson's first year. A city council speaker that I would point folks to as well as a lengthy look at where the fighting climate change conversation is heading in two thousand nineteen at both the state and city levels, and we're certainly continuing to look at different elements of this public advocate special election. We'll be covering the mayor state of the city and this new day in Albany. I'm hoping to have a good look at sort of where the Democrats in state government are agreeing disagreeing. And where there's a lot of. Detail to be worked out on on some of the policies up there.

"Run for public. Advocate, and to nonpartisan special election citywide, and I'm I've thrown my hat in the ring because I think that I'm the best person to keep the mayor on his feet. Keep the mayor honest and all the mayor accountable. So I think that is the most important function or role the public advocate, and I think I'm uniquely qualified to do just that. And why why are uniquely qualified for that role? Well, I think I've been doing a pretty effective job of doing that in the city council in my current role. But also, the fact that I I think that the fact that me and the mayor don't come from the same political party. I think that, you know, I've never endorsed the mayor and never supported the mayor politically all the other candidates in the race have done that they have, you know, obviously been voting with the mayor and supporting his legislative agenda at city hall, and in some cases Albany, and I don't know that that any of them, quite frankly are going to be able to be truly independent of the mayor. So if New Yorkers want someone to to keep the mayor honest again to hold them accountable this feet to the fire, and they're not happy with the direction at the mayor's leading the city. And then then I guess I'm their guy. But if they like the mayor, and they like the direction of city is headed in. They've got twenty other candidates to choose from. So we should say that of the roughly twenty five candidates who said they're running or maybe running. You know, we don't know exactly what the ballots gonna look like for another week or so when petitions have. Been brought in and we see if there's any challenges to petitions, and such and then we really know who's going to be on the ballot. I will say of the twenty five candidates who are in that mix. There's probably a couple others who have endorsed the mayor in the past. But I think you're referring mostly to the elected officials the other elected officials in the race. That's right. So say a little bit more, you you mentioned you're from the same political party. You're elected, you're Republican. But you, you know, it's very interesting. I've heard you before before our listeners, you know, talk a little bit about sort of your political identity and political philosophy. I consider myself a Rockefeller Republican New York City Republican in the same mould as Mike Bloomberg. I'm socially liberal, but I'm fiscally conservative. You know? I don't subscribe to the same Republican brand is the national GOP some pro choice. I support the LGBTQ community and marriage equality. You know, I don't have the same baggage that other more conservative Republicans. Might have. So let me just say, I consider myself, and I describe myself as a moderate Republican, but putting that aside I've represented democratic district. My district is three to one democrat and non white majority. And my last election, I got more than sixty six percent of the vote. So I would tell people whatever I'm doing must be working because I represent a district and a part of queens that is not overwhelmingly Republican, and is not a majority homogeneous white homogeneous. So, you know, I'm very proud of that where there's a feather in my cap that I've been able to earn the trust in the support of my constituents who are Democrats independents, and I want to take that brand citywide and show people that I can be avoided for all New Yorkers not just the people who agree with me or belong.

"What that means is that, you know, especially women who have been outta the workforce 'cause they probably took time off to raise their families are able to apply for a job without having to you know, state what their previous salaries were and be able to compete for the job is actually offering voice. The a lot of employers who. We seem to have lost you there. Councilmember are you with us? Yeah. You're saying legislation. So go ahead. Yeah. So so, you know, we've seen a lot of employees employers of oh ball potential employees because of their salary history. And not based on what the what the job. So we're in our final minner to here with city council member Rafael Espinosa running for public advocate and the special election that is taking place. We've just learned in the last day or two or actually few days February twenty sixth everybody should Mark their calendars to be ready to vote everybody in the city is eligible if you're a registered voter, this is a citywide race. It is a non-partisan special election, meaning all the candidates have to sort of make up their own ballot line. And we heard from councilmember Espen all that he's running on the livable city party line that he's now introduced with his ballot petitions, so let's talk sort of the political landscape of this race. We're sort of assuming that once ballot petitions are do this field narrows a bit from the let's say twenty five to thirty people who've said, they're running. But let's say even there's a dozen candidates running and on the ballot. How do you win? What's the what's the path to victory your city cow? Remember that obviously comes with something of a local base. But how do you expand it beyond that especially in a field where you've got, you know, a couple of people like city council member money Williams who just ran a statewide race. And, you know, raise his name recognition in a big way. And you know, a couple of other people that also have some solid name recognition. Yeah. I know that I I've been a lot of work that has signed function whether it be banning plastics or Trenton Neagle is e bikes for delivery drivers. I I've I have a record of passing in pushing legislation and affects all New Yorkers across the board. I think that has helped me the able to break out on my own this. But at the at another points of make is that no as joint legislator. I thought it was always important to find ways get young people involved in the process, and the reason young people never got an all because government and really spoke to the issues they manage most. I think if you look at my legislative history, I haven't been able to do that I hope to increase voter turnout election. I'm hoping for a high voter turnout with I think that would only work in my favor, and I hope that in the next few weeks our were able to get New Yorkers of more and more aware of this race because that would only believe strengthen. See my chances of winning. It's gonna jump in with one last question cast member, you know, this comes up a lot when we're talking about executives at every level these days, which is to what extent in on. What topic should they be investigated? The public advocate has some ability to investigate the mayor and the mayor's agencies. The city council has that ability to in fact, there's relatively new committee dedicated to that how would you use the powers of the public advocate to investigate? Or would you to investigate the mayor in his agencies? Is there anything that jumps out in your mind that warrants investigation one hundred percent, I would use those powers especially to oversee the operations at nights? So I think that what we've seen the past few weeks and months have been criminal of the fact that he wasn't being addressed. And there were there were, you know, kids who were being poisoned and impossibly getting symptoms and illnesses are affecting for the rest of their lives. You know, something that should not be taking. Lately. And that's public advocate. I'm a continue looking into that and pushing across the board to make sure nitrous finally properly funded, but also that any funding that is receiving nothing. Mismanaging of the. Well, I think we're going to have to leave. It there council member. Thanks so much for joining us here on WBAI. And if we don't talk to you the rest of the way here, good luck on the campaign trail.
