"James Hahn on Twitter are James James, I just follow James like a week ago. We'll disclosure. I love James Hahn on Twitter. He tweeted today. He tweeted today. Take a look at the new PGA Tour schedule and you'll understand why players are upset. Vegas to Japan. To South Carolina to Bermuda to Mexico. He says, for the viewers, it's a flick of a remote. For us, it's 20 hour travel days and tens of thousands of dollars in expenses. That tweet already has 1400 likes in 25, 30 minutes, and then he follows it up by saying, to himself, we should be playing in major cities, places where they have an NFL football team, not Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Us little guys have feelings too. All right? He has caught a ton of shit for these tweets, but he's right. But he is right. Listen to that. Listen to that, that 6 week, that's what 5 weeks Vegas to Japan to South Carolina to Bermuda to Mexico. Vegas to Japan? Yeah, so to South Carolina. So they're going to be the little guys are going to want to play Vegas because it's really in the season because it's a wraparound. So they want to get off to a decent start. If they get into Japan, they're 100% going because they're pretty sure it doesn't have a cut. There's no way they're going to have an event in Japan with no cuts. So 1000% they're going. And then I guess I guess presumably. You take that off, I would guess. Where are they playing? I didn't even see where they're playing. But they're playing somewhere. Like the golf course. It doesn't matter. The only set is ridiculous, though. But I'm like, that's got to be a new event, 'cause the only South Carolina I know is Hilton head that they play, but I think it's chattahoochee or chat, chat to Jesse or, oh yeah. That's something like that over there. It's really cool. But yeah, that's not an easy travel. Well, you can't even do that. Your host. You're totally host if you try that. I don't know what I mean. This is where the play. Basically what he's saying for the people in the comments yelling at clouds is like the big guys, they're probably getting their own way paid to all that shit. The Japanese event, the big guys are probably getting older stuff paid for. I would guess all of it. Maybe they can pay appearance feed money over there. I don't really know. But the little guys have to play all those and what he's saying is it's going to cost him 30, not 30, but probably 20 grand to do all those. Ish,

We get some emails from people. They're not so crazy about him. Tell me about ape. Well, here's the reason I like, hey, because of his military background, his experience overseas. He's actually been a prosecutor in the pit, which to me, maybe I'm a little biased. Being an actual prosecutor not being a high level guy who's done the work and, you know, and I told him, I'm happy to endorse you, but, you know, you're going to have to hold up your end of the bargain. And his biggest bargaining point was, I'm going to go down and take on the cartels in Mexico. And for Arizona, that's a big thing. That's everything. To declare them a foreign terrorist organization, which I haven't heard a single other state attorney general candidates say they would do. Yeah, he better get armed security. Well, you know what? I believe that he's going to do that. And that's why I like it.

And he never gets off the boat. Olivia and John panics tells everybody about it, a search begins on the boat they find his passport. I think his keys, they found some personal items of his, but he's nowhere to be found. The coast guard looks into it and they go, look, he probably fell overboard and he's lost at sea. They searched a little bit, but you know, it was nighttime. It's like, you're not gonna find the guy. And he's pronounced missing. And it was a shattering thing and Olivia Newton-John. You can't imagine a guy wanting to get away from her. Maybe she's a crazy bitch.

This whole ordeal has gotten them close because that woman lost somebody, too. And now her and Olivia and John are very tight. And this woman apparently think she's running a memoir.

Dick Morris Discusses Trump's Powerful Immigration Policies

"On the issues, let's talk about the issue of immigration. Ann coulter has been bitterly against him really for the last 5 years because she claims he did nothing. He did not do what he said he was going to do, which is build the wall. There's some truth to that. I never came to understand how much truth there is to that. What's that big thing on the border? Well, it's not a monolithic 2000 foot long wall. I mean, he built some of the wall. I think he built all of it. No, he certainly didn't build all of that. Nobody would say he built all of it except you just now. But he seems to have wanted to and the Democrats made it effectively impossible for him to do it. But if there were a wall, we wouldn't have these immigration problems. He stopped immigration during his term. That he did. Well, no, he did that, but I'm saying that he vowed to build a wall for tourists to visit it. It's to stop illegals from coming in. I did. Right. The interesting thing about his speech yesterday was what he said about immigration. That I think was fascinating. Which is that he explains how he achieved the remaining Mexico policy in the way that he had never explained before. He told me about it, but he'd never said it publicly. He said that he knew that he needed to keep them in Mexico because once the immigrants came to the U.S., they got all the constitutional rights of citizens, even though they weren't, they were here illegally. Right. And the only way to stop that was to keep them in Mexico. Right. So Lopez Obrador is a communist basically. The head of Mexico. Yeah. And he wasn't about to help Trump. And Trump got him to put together 28,000 troops on the border on the Mexican side to apprehend immigrants and solve Trump's problems for him. And the way Trump did that was that he renegotiated nafta. Free trade. And made it into a very advantageous deal for Mexico and for the U.S.. And then he went to Mexico and said, okay, if you do not post these troops on the border, he said the graphically said that was a Friday. He said on Monday morning at 8 a.m. there will be a 25% U.S. tariff on any imports coming from Mexico, which in one stroke would destroy their entire economy. And Lopez Obrador said, we would be honored to put the troops on the border. But I

Mexico City Residents Angered by Influx of Americans Gentrifying Area

"We've got a situation where yet another city has been overwhelmed by migrants and we've covered these stories for ages on this radio program. We're talking about 1.6 million. And they've invaded this big city, they are they're changing the customs. They're not learning the language. And people are really upset about all of this. Prices are going up. It turns out that areas, neighborhoods are now gentrifying, but the great the great irony here, it's not happening on our side of the border. It's actually happening south of the border in Mexico City. And the folks who live in Mexico City are enraged. And here's the reason why. They say that too many Californians are relocating to Mexico City. And when the Californians are coming in, they're not acclimating. So typically, let me give you an example. Here in the Deep South, we're very welcoming and affirming people. And I will use the people of the good people of North Carolina as an example. And especially you folks in the Winston Salem and Greensboro area. You guys have been literally overwhelmed by migrants coming from the northern states. Now, I have to imagine that early on in the process, you guys were like, hey y'all, come on over, you know, we'll take you down to the cracker barrel. We're gonna get you. We'll go down to biscuitville and get some iced tea, get to know the neighbors. And then once you got to know the neighbors, you realized that these people had no inclination of assimilating to the southern way of life. In other words, they not only packed their bags, but they packed their bagels with them, so they brightened up and there's nothing wrong with the bagel. Don't get me wrong. I like bagels, but the south is a biscuit region.

Rep. Loudermilk: We Didn't Talk About OPEC Until Biden Came In

"And one of the things I appreciate you pointing out here is not just ending the Keystone pipeline pulling the plug on that, but you've got these Democrats that are going after offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. I mean, this is a very dangerous game to Democrats are playing. They are and they've actually included some provisions in the appropriations bills that will be brought up. This week. And so there's an old adage that when you're in a hole, quit digging, but they just keep digging. It's like, oh, we're going to fix this by reducing more American oil production. Toxins have been in Congress, we became energy independent, and it was actually during the Obama administration. Republicans in Congress ended a 40 year ban on exportation of U.S. oil. I was surprised to find out that we were the largest producer of oil in the world. We had the capacity to do that. Even greater than OPEC, so we passed a bill that forced Obama to sign it that ended the ban on exporting U.S. oil. Literally within weeks, we became the world's largest exporter of oil, which meant that OPEC no longer controlled the international price of oil. Everyone quit hearing about OPEC until Biden came into office and what does he do? He shuts down our domestic production. And now he's going over to OPEC countries to ask them to help us with their fuel prices. It makes no sense what these folks are doing. And then they just double down to try to make it worse.

These Are the Elections Kash Patel Is Keeping an Eye On

"So cash, I want to ask you, there's a lot of elections happening right now. What races are you looking at? What candidates are you behind? Where do you think the America first agenda has the best chance of success in the kind of as we're ending the primary season right now? Well, let's start with the great state of Arizona. Of course I'm a huge champion and proponent of Kerry Lake, who I've endorsed. My first gubernatorial endorsement, I think she's America first candidate who understands border security and the need for national security priorities and putting American citizens first. Similarly, I endorse Blake masters. He's going to be the next senator of Arizona. We're going to flip that seat with the drive and leadership of Donald Trump to make him his candidacy front and center, just like he did out west in my home state of Nevada to Adam laxalt. We're going to do similar out west. We're going to take the west back and we're going to take America back while we do that because we have people who care about the border, people who care about economics and people who care about tramping down illegal narcotics that are killing our youth at record numbers due to Chinese fentanyl flowing in from Mexico. And I know Arizona was excited to have president Trump here. But he had to push it a week because of the loss of his passing of his ex-wife. So it's very sad. And he's doing okay. And the trooper that he is. He's just going to push it a few days and he'll be out west with us in a week or

The Biden Family Is the Best Example of 'Elite Capture'

"Maria bartiromo and Marsha Blackburn exposing the Biden crime family. This is all part of it, by the way. The Biden family is the best example of elite capture that we have. They've been totally captured by the Chinese Communist Party. They're held hostage by the Chinese Communist Party. They do what they want. Play cut 20. Let's take a look at that right now because I have a graphic of what appears to be Joe Biden's China policy. First, we know that the family reportedly accepted $31 million at least from deals in China. That is from hunter's laptop. And senator Ron Johnson's investigation and Peter Schweitzer's reporting fails to demand any COVID origins investigation. We have no evidence that Joe Biden ever brought up the origins of COVID to Xi Jinping in the 5 phone calls that he's had. He's failing to call for an end of the fentanyl trafficking. I have not heard him mention fentanyl wants to fentanyl is made in China, pushed through Mexico into America. And it continues. He has canceled the China initiative. This was an initiative that was investigating the continued Chinese intellectual property theft. He's considering lifting the tariffs on China imports. He sent oil from America's strategic reserve to other countries, including China, and he is pushing electric vehicles solar panels and batteries, aggressively in his climate change agenda and many of those are made in China. And that's just part of it. Good for Maria bartiromo for saying that. And not to mention our elites do business with China, BlackRock is heavily invested in China, our corporate masters are intertwined with China. Bought and paid for by the Chinese Communist Party. And if I was China, I think that last email was super smart, I would try to do everything I possibly can to try to incite division and chaos here domestically.

"Ricky retreated to his mother's house which was further up the hill from his home and at that point state police officer who arrived on scene. Who had been there. Previously and justice huber was getting out of the car. Ricky from the hilltop being a skilled hunter is able to shoot his rifle and shoot huber in head. I don't know what the distance was. But i would imagine that still are really remarkable. Shot and it kind of to me. It kind of throws out that self defense thing out the window that he then shot the officers. Who were responded yet. You are not acting in defense. If you're shooting police and officer. Hooper was found with his radio. Still in hand getting ready to call in officer down officer down When he was killed instantly. So after these slaughters. Ricky disappeared into the mountains behind his mother's home and a manhunt ensued that night the next day. Apparently ricky went to a brother-in-law's house docked on the door and basically said i need to turn myself in. His brother-in-law said that ricky didn't say anything other than a need to go turn myself in that they didn't talk about anything else. That ricky was apparently really quiet to whenever he did turn turn insult in. he didn't say much to investigators. he was arraigned the following monday. Along with his sisters. Dora and sandra in dora was actually charged with attempted murder and sandra was charged with aggravated battery. I couldn't find in my research why they were charged with those things other than dora had been outside or may have been outside win. Ricky i shot ebay and i couldn't see why sandra was charged with aggravated battery and i didn't see a whether i couldn't find whether or not they had been convicted. Terrible store is like the worst nightmare. Eloy agnes the sun and selena. Eat those little sister. Were the only survivors. Miraculously illinois survived getting shot in the groin and in the shoulder During ricky's trial he claimed ricky. Claimed self defense in the slaughters. He said that this was all. This was nothing like premeditated. He was just defending himself. And there is a lot of Interesting discussion about his Claim of self-defence in the state pushing back on what the claim is and you kind of touched on that with your story to wear. The young man said that this was also defense in the states. Basically saying no. That's not what self defenses And so obviously jury didn't buy what he was telling and they convicted ricky and he was sentenced to a hundred and forty six years in prison. He is still imprisoned. I'm pretty sure he's here in the state of new mexico department of corrections I don't know what he's done with his life since these that information is pretty limited It is pretty remarkable that he was very adamant that he did nothing wrong. Tragic story that you know somebody who survived domestic violence and child abuse. And all that. It's it's like my worst nightmare honestly and i am glad that he was arrested. I'm glad he was prosecuted. But i i don't know what the answer is for for these type of situations because you look at it. It reminds me a lot of the Girly chew hossan cough case covered where the victim is doing everything right everything. They're supposed to do everything that the system is set up for and it's still not enough to keep her alive or keep your family alive like it's just i don't even have words.

"The severely mentally ill and so every two years john typically comes up for review to see whether or not he's able to stand trial for his crimes and every few years he is still deemed to be unable to do. His brother believes robert believes that. General die in the las vegas mental health hospital. He does his brother he describes him as A very sad person who has kind of a you know realized now that he's probably going to die there and it's it's sad obviously a twofold. You have families affected loved ones affected who will never feel like their their day in court has been given. He's never it doesn't look like he's ever going to be able to stand trial for these crimes and also john's family who from what i can tell it. Sounds like they try to do everything that they could for him. Dealing with something like schizophrenia. I don't know anybody close to me. But i have met people who who were schizophrenic. It's incredibly challenging and scary and it can manifest in different ways like paranoia delusions in. John checked all of those most serious aspects of schizophrenic. It just is. There's no positive resolution in this case unfortunately and the other thing that you think about his access to weapons people knew he had access to weapons and legally. There's nothing on the books that says the people could intervene with that right right. So you see the the progress of trying to push forward red flag laws or things like that Knows if that could have helped the situation in other unusual things that the gun that john hyde used it was an antique was a gun from nineteen eighteen. People don't even see. it had to be modified. Just to manage the caliber that he was seeking out previously the days leading up to the homicides. He was taking out ammunition in a gun that he used was an antique gun. It wasn't known for its deadly impact alone as standalone gun. It could knock you down. It was reported but it wasn't known for being a deadly gun But it had to be modified for today's ammunition and that's probably what could yeah made a deadly. So that's the story of john hide in albuquerque. His spree killing well. This was a bummer episode. For sure right yeah. I'm so. I don't think we're going to get any any complaints about are laughing because i don't think we laughed really at all through this entire episode. Thank you for listening and stay safe new mexico.

"Are you denying me care that i feel but you're also mocking me and you're making fun of me. His family was aware of all of this. So we'll we'll get into that so John was adopted and his brother. Robert was also adopted and robert reported that he they always knew. John suffered with mental health issues. But the john was always pretty much proactive and trying to get help although they saw this decline in they were worried about him. John as you can see with all his various efforts to be seen presbyterian. He was not avoiding mental health care but he was being ignored or whether it was intentional or not yet. That's that's what happened. Yeah and that's the thing. That really frustrates me. I think just as a person who has had to navigate the medical system here in one way or another. The mentality of that's our policy right is so pervasive. Make it appointment and every in every medical system here in new mexico in probably in america is is very much like this is how it is whether you like it or not. That's how it is in the you know. I'm just doing my job or whatever but i just feel like there needs to be more safeguards for situations like this. Yeah i mean. It's really surprising that. From what i could read. Nobody really assessed him when he kept coming back and coming back to the hospital saying i need to see somebody nobody ever. It doesn't look like anybody ever sat down with him and said you know. Let's walk through. What your concerns are. Let's see if you're an elevated risk that would require like a triage appointment right so he asked you to the emergency room exactly. Yeah so he goes the fifteenth the sixteenth he comes back again to presbyterian looking for help on the seventeen he goes back. He says he meets with them. He says i need somebody to see me. My medication is affecting me and somebody tells him we're gonna look into your concerns..

"These sound like crimes that may have been driven by something other than passion or disappointment however far speculation goes this was either something sean lennon had been thinking of for a while or he has some experience with this kind of violence in the past and he had kept it a secret up until this moment but more on that later four days after martha's murder on january twenty fifth twenty one year old matthew miller who allegedly sold drugs to the couple was killed so now we have jennifer mata and matthew miller. So apparently you know we know. He killed montana for because he thought they were having a relationship a report detailing. What sean lennon confessed says that mata somehow before his death showed sean A sexually explicit photo of miller and another man with one of lennon's children. Noel online is saying we don't know if that's true or not right because of this land in lourdes miller to the home and he shot him beat him as well. Police say that there is no evidence that remotely proves us a connection between miller and the children. There's nothing to indicate that was true right now. Okay right. I mean you would think the police would have access to martha's phone and his records and everything else. So if he would have showed him something like that they probably would have been able to find it so now. We have three bodies on february first grants police department received a missing persons report for miller and as the case unfolded jennifer lenin and motto reported missing as well so we have three people missing from the same town and so curious who reported martha jennifer missing. I am to. Maybe it was friends. Yeah you know. Grants is a small town She had a job there. If martha had a job there people would have noticed that they didn't show up to work so that could have been part of it too so eight days. Later on. february ninth miller's vehicle was found parked few blocks from the landon home during investigation resident near the area discovery said. The car had been there since january. Twenty sixth so things are going to go more off the rails than they already have as. I continue the story when the police reached out to jennifer's parents. Her mother said she had not seen or heard from jefferson's january ninth and said it is odd as she normally keeps in contact at least every few weeks. In addition the months she got a call from sean who said jennifer hit him with a frying pan and that she was having an affair with martha to double down on his story. He told police some information after the question him for help in regards to the missing person's case involving his wife he told police that he saw her on february tenth and told them jennifer lennon mata an unidentified man had driven away in a white vehicle heading to arizona to score. He's trying to throw them off the tracks to red herring right. There was no evidence of a white vehicle. But there was evidence of sean lennon. Driving miller's car to a long term parking spot. He continued to we tale for police when he said that jennifer had a history of affairs and drug addiction. Gone missing before..

The person is who was murdering everybody but he hasn't been officially prosecuted. Okay gone through the justice system yet. So it's still an open investigation so to speak but with that being said just strap in for a ride. That's gonna leave you hanging on the edge of a cliff back in two thousand thirteen lenin and his wife. Jennifer were married in pennsylvania. Jennifer was the mother of five. She had a bachelors and masters degree from rutgers university camden. Oh she also earned an in nursing license from helen fold school of nursing in new york and they moved to new mexico in two thousand seventeen but divorced two years later does. Did you learn why they moved to new mexico. I did not learn why that happened. There's not a lot of information because this case is so new. There's not a lot of back story here. Records show that sean was awarded. Sole custody of the couple's three children in two thousand nineteen while and that a protective plan from the cya fd Included only supervised visitation by their mother over concerns at the time about the potential for neglected due to prescription drug abuse. You would think that this would be the end of the story but it's not. Despite being divorced. it was reported. The couple was still living together with their three children. Girls six and seven and boy h four and they were still attempting to work out their differences and disagreements so this is an dino want to interrupt but so she already had five children prior and then they have three children of their own or they never really clarify whose kids are. Who's biologically okay. There's still a lot of kids floating around. We don't know what's happening. So jennifer's brother chris. Whitman told the associated press quote. They were still parenting together. And there was no indication that there was trouble at all from my knowledge and our families knowledge. They were working on their relationship in heading in the right direction in quote well but the disagreements and differences all came to a head on january seventeenth two thousand twenty. One landon shot thirty. Nine year old jennifer. His ex wife in the bedroom of their home in grants new mexico. This was part of a nine page affidavit. Which gave reasons for his arrest. The initial shooting occurred. Because sean discovered jennifer having a relationship with a forty year old man named justin mata some reports that he caught them in a compromising situation reports..

"To other facilities to house them until things were cleaned and fixed and everything i. mean the entire prison was like one one wing in particular was completely. Burned out. There I mean not to mention that. They had to clean up everything and. The crime scene. Yeah, everything was a crime scene so because of the cost of keeping those prisoners in other states. because. That was skyrocketing. State legislators started. To bring them back to the state penitentiary only six months after the riots. That's interesting, so it was extremely expensive for New Mexico to have other states house are inmates. That's interesting. I mean you wouldn't think that other states would is do us a solid in like. Give art prisoners in state tuition basically. Yeah I don't know how it works, but I think the other part of the cost was the cost of fixing the prison, so there's with those were also putting pressure on the legislators. Legislators were like. Let's just get some duct tape and figure just put him back in there. They'll be fine superglue. Don't worry about it. My cousin will fix it. He told me after you give them. A twelve pack knows a guy. Just give them a twelve pack I'll be fine. So this happened. Even though the prison really wasn't ready to be reopened I mean six months isn't a long time. So as you can imagine this more problems and more challenges for the inmates in the state, and I'm sure it did nothing to fix the morale issue or any of the issues that actually started the right in the first place, so we have a really long history of kind of cutting corners in the state. Yeah, yeah, so over the years between the story until you and the prison riot there were at least six killings of inmates and guards in the months following their return to the state penitentiary. Moses, yeah, and many of the killings were related to the riot, as inmates were fearful that they would be snitched on for killing their fellow inmates, so they did the only logical thing they could think of. Kill people to stop them from testifying against. That I mean, it makes sense because there were prosecutions that we're going to follow the riot, so they're like. I know what I'll do. I'll just start killing people totally rational. The pattern of death and violence continued for years following the riot, and there was a ton of fear in the prisons that in New Mexico. The tensions boil over again and this carried over into the late eighties, while the state did not have another riot like the one in nineteen eighty, the tensions and the fear continued to fester so now let's fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six. My friend. Governor, Tony Tonia. That's Tony with a e and why Tony Tony Tony. He decided he was going to commute. The death sentence a five convicted murderers who were on death row. The former governor was quoted as saying my personal beliefs do not allow me to permit the execution of an individual in the name of the state for me to simply walk away now we'll make me as much an accomplice as others who would participate in the execution. He did this just weeks before his hand off of the governorship to Gary Carruthers. And this would lead to one of the worst prison breaks in Mexico, so he's commuting the death sentences of these inmates before he leaves because he has moral objections to the death penalty, which makes sense. But that particular, those commute that commuting of those senses. What's potentially leading up to this prison?.

"But it's possible that because those other people were you know they were wasps basically or it was easier to point the finger and blame this Jewish couple for this this subversion. Sure and of course. It's completely aren't coming from Roy Cohen. Who himself was also Jewish but for some reason he had laser focus on this couple and making his name was very important to him making his name known and pushing the agenda of Joseph McCarthy so after the execution of the rosenbergs there were still always this general distrust of anybody who affiliated with concepts of communism or or Russia up to Ronald Reagan really well known for not trusting Russians. I think the Cold War carried on into our childhoods and I remember some of it I remember all of it but I remember some of the aggression towards Russia towards some of these other countries. That was still going not that it was undeserved absolutely. I mean they definitely were were fucked up. Yes yes so. Ultimately a lot of people wondered if Oppenheimer had any experience himself in the trading or sharing of secrets. I think a light of debt was also cast on him again because he was a Jewish scientist and again going back to the anti-semite Semitic nature that was common in the US but time period. Yeah absolutely at the time. People definitely have their doubts wasn't intelligence disclosure from US resources and you documents from the USSR that we learned Oppenheimer also had a cone codename delegated by the US are his codename Westchester. But it's been it was clearly confirmed by the. Ussr documents that he himself did not participate in sharing information even though he had been actively recruited and even his own mistress was a car. Technically a card carrying member of the Communist Party. He himself never that we know so far. Never shared any nuclear secrets with Russia. It does seem that the whole McCarthyism and all of that really did succeed in squashing. The Communist Party in the United States right the level of influence and and notoriety that they had in the forties and the thirties is not basically non-existent wrangling. So that's that's an interesting thing to think about yes. They got what they wanted. I guess I mean McCarthy era I guess you can argue with Success Woolen. What their motivation. Wise again whatever. People's political leanings. Are I history history But you know it is interesting that there was this complete annihilation potentially of an idea a political idea and granted there were these perversions. With trying to steal secrets. But I don't doubt that the United States was also participating in espionage efforts throughout at the world. Exactly what a communist would say Yup card carrying member? I do like the name Ethyl I do and I. I saw photos of them. You know I I feel bad for kids. I think that they had a really rough go because they were put into essentially foster care and then adopted navy and change their names to be their adoptive parents and I think that was probably because they were being attacked are followed the New Jersey school system. It's crazy yeah. Their their sons are still alive. I don't know that they still give interviews. But they from what I've read. They still like Eric said they still believe that. Their MOM's participation was minimal at best. Yeah it's a really sad story. It is time and a horrible story. I mean just the entire thing is crazy and the fact that there's so many ties to New Mexico. It just blows my mind a little bit because I was not even aware of that so i WanNa thank you for teaching me something. You're welcome and what we talked about earlier was it's the. Us obviously beat Russia in terms of developing the weapon. Although the information that is inevitably given to Russia did expedite their process. It saves them about three or four years I think in developing their own yeah Which leads you bunch of other things down the arms race and all that fun stuff not fun not fun but still interesting to highlight the role that New Mexico played during World War Two during the development of weapons. And if we can leave you with anything stay safe and check out the white sands whitesands check out. The latest Cabrera El Camino community is so good. Yeah well thank you again for joining me you for having me here Eric. What's the name of the book that you read? The book is called a spies. Guy To Santa Fe Albuquerque by E. Be held and he identifies himself as a former intelligence officer of the. Us government. Is He only Mexican. He was stationed here New Mexico for a time which led to his research but he doesn't currently live here. Okay that's cool. Well we'll check that out and anything else that you want to say to our listeners. Thank you for being interested in Eric's podcast stacey slash your hands. Don't drink bleach.

"I would be into that. It's really beautiful. People have weddings. There will like you said it's on High Street. The Victorian style probably two story house. Yep Exactly Yep so. They have the same exact room where Ruth Greenglass and David Greenglass Staden when he was shuttling the nuclear secrets to his wife to eventually pass on to his brother-in-law Julius Rosenberg So greenglass later became known as code-named Bumblebee. So if I go back to make what are these things have in common trump whitesands bumblebee? Now you're getting more the picture. So he's Bumblebee. He is Bumblebee. So it was transformers. He was the transformer all the time it was a car wasn't even human so Rosenberg. Not None of this happened by accident. Rosenberg was an active member of the Soviet. Union's like support group was a Communist Party member. And he's an American though. Yeah in Manhattan right so Julius Rosenberg. David Greenglass brother-in-law was an active member of the Soviet Union spy ring and his handler slash mentor at the time encouraged him to recruit his brother-in-law. David Greenglass Greenglass was an active soldier in the US Army but he and his wife Ruth had also previously joined the Youth Communist League prior to this happening so all of them had interconnected relationships with the Communist Party in the Soviet identity and the and the climate at the time was not as like anti-communism as it became after all of this happened but it was starting to build up. I think that like a lot of people in America were against Communism which stood for and They felt that it was anti-american that it was anti freedom and so for people to be like people were part of the Communist Party before this it was just a thing right. It was a thing you just like. I'm a Democrat. I'm a Communist. I'm a Republican. But then after this all kind of fleshes out it starts to become more hostile towards absolutely. Yeah the Communist. The Communist Party in the United States was more affiliated with the working class working unions and labor rights exactly and the spouse ings of like Emma. Goldman who was a huge labor rights activists who pushed for like the eight hour workday and women getting access to birth control sweatshops ending sweatshops. Exactly Yeah So. It was very common actually for people to align themselves politically with what was previously identified as being Liga communistic party. It was at this time this World War Two and later on during the Cold War that we obviously began to develop all this very negative sentiment towards that concept and it. You know to be fair. It wasn't helped by the Russia regime at the time. They were super brutal. It was a dictatorship even though in the guys like a communist buying on CBS. They were spying us. I'm sure we were doing saved. One hundred percent spying on them too so greenglass and David Greenglass already had his connections. Julius Rosenberg was encouraged by his handler. By his connections to really push for David Greenglass to share information that he was getting from Los Alamos so we don't know what that coversation looked like. We don't know if there was any sort of coercion. All we know is that David. Greenglass took information from Los Alamos and shared it with his wife and his brother-in-law Julius Greenglass Aka Bumblebee continued to share information with Julius and Julius is code named Jesse now was code named antenna. So the Soviet spy network didn't just end with those two. They didn't want just want to hedge their bets. There they also targeted a well-known scientist him. Klaus Fuchs like we talked about and his code name was Charles in his counterpart. A R. L Z yes. Yeah sorry no it's okay. That was weird. Yeah maybe that's like the Russian version I duNno and his counterpart to transfer information. Was Ted Hall code-named Millard Millard? Millard Miller is that like a bird that's Mallard L. Malehda Dwight so. I watched a couple of documentaries about this. Whole thing and hall was allegedly a genius like he was Super Smart Scientific mind he was young and there was one scientists that work with him on this project and he said that he could do things like ninety percent faster than everybody else because he was just so smart now so hall and Fuchs. Focus was primarily on the use of uranium specifically. You two three five power their dispatches for that research didn't get didn't end up reaching Moscow until much later on so we don't really know that their spy efforts had a huge impact because for some reason their information didn't get to Moscow in timely fashion also Ted Hall was working with his former roommate another career for the Soviet Union and his name was Saville. Sax and Sax would also shuttle secrets so they would also have clandestine meetings at UNM campus really. Yeah in in this book that I found a spice guy to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. They have photos of like specific locations at UNM that they met at location specific to Santa Fe that the spies would meet out to share information. So it's really cool so everytime driving around campus. I always remember like Oh my God these people here like these people were here physically standing here sharing nuclear secrets. It's so crazy that's insane. And also like the way that they distributed this information back to Russia was pretty crazy like I. I saw this whole thing about the Telegraph and the telegram So they would just send these wire cables through Western Union back. Then it wasn't just money money union me some money on Western Union area. No but they they actually would send these secrets through a coded message and the code itself was so complicated like I got really confused watching and learning about how they did the code but they said that even today with supercomputers the way they are. They're still basically unbreakable as you have the key and so there was one guy in particular who was working in Los Alamos to decode all of these cables and figured it out. How so he actually learned all of these code names. He knew he's one of the discovered Charles and Bumblebee and all these other things. He's a very smart guy who's like multi-lingual that's the only reason. He was able to decode this. How he knew Russian he knew English these other languages and he figured out the code cracked the code and was able to determine that we were actually losing all of these secrets. All of these top secret things that were going on with this project. We're just going right to Russia. Wow it was amazing I will show. Is THAT SMART. It'd be a spy but I would just rub it in people's faces fund Los Alamos actually has the highest percentage of a master's level educated people in the state rousted. But what do you got? You're welcome have you like them? Apples the real smart Boston. I Dunno actress because I might he? I don't know I was thinking of goodwill hunting mark. Wahlberg again no Matt Damon. I think more complex in goodwill I know you said Boston. Oh yeah but it. Doesn't it takes place in Boston? Harbor Hav Greenglass was eventually apprehended in one thousand nine hundred fifty when his transgressions were discovered World War Two was over but the US was entering a phase a new war and that was a Cold War with Russia. So we also know this as the red scare so Russia was enemy numero uno number one. Sorry Putin Yup Sills Green glass quickly. Dimed out Julius and his sister Ethel in order to secure protection for he and his wife. We wanted you to say dimed out. What is that route it out? You're getting mad because I'm using this expression. Dimed out. I use the phrase dimed out in always read it out to be only one. You're saying it's not a New Mexico. That's fine I've always said dimed out. Yeah he sold them out. He sold amount out. He dimed him out. He sold them out. Hopefully your listeners will support me in the use of the expression timed out. They won't support so obviously in order to protect himself and his wife led to the fall of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg he basically just bitched out. I mean he totally threw them under the bus. It's really unclear if he ever regretted this. Like you can find some old photos of. When he's leaving the court after testifying against his sister and his brother-in-law he doesn't look distraught or upset. I think he ended up living under an assumed name and died later on. I think one researcher found out where he lived and made contact with him but he didn't share any sort of reflection on any sort of sense of guilt or or anything so it's I think it would be complicated to unravel what that dynamic looks like especially when it came to who bore the majority of the responsibility where was everybody equal partners or what but who board the majority of the consequences right. That's the real quick. Yeah so yeah so going into that point. Let's talk about. Ethel and Julius is prosecution. So Roy Cohen became a lead prosecutor of the Rosenberg trial. They were eventually executed in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. After being found guilty of espionage. They died by electric chair. Okay sadly they left behind two young children and also. There's a lot of like I think that your point here and my point is that there are a lot of other people involved. They did not suffer even close to that level of consequence and the level of involvement. I think is questionable especially on. Ethel's part that her son is really advocating for justice for her claiming that she was wrongfully accused. I know that she was Communist Party. American which was the thing back then. But there's a lot of questions about how involved she was directly as opposed to her brother's wife Right. Who was ruth? Greenglass was very involved and admittedly so and not just that but like hall and Fuchs and all these other people. They didn't get electrocuted right now. That's a really good point for some reason. Cohen have is is laser pointed towards Ethel and Julius. He's GonNa make an example out of them again. If you get a chance to check out angels in America there's Roy Cohen's character is played by Elba Chino Rosenberg's played by Meryl Streep and he's kind of suffering is a national treasure and her spirit comes to talk to him. It's really profound. It's really good acting Just a little bit of a segue if you get a chance to check it out. So Roy Cohen was infamous in his own right. So he was really infamous for his role. During the McCarthy era the Red Scare Court theism McCarthyism. There were hearings after hearings. Were people were being targeted at accused of being communist specifically in Hollywood actors actresses probably what you would call like more liberal minded. Today were being blacklisted and labeled as Communist. Once you're blacklisted. That basically meant you could never work again. You're labelled as a communist sympathizer an active member of the party in. You didn't deserve to work again. And the big big people. Spearing that efforts were Roy. Cohn and Senator McCarthy from Wisconsin Wisconsin or at home was from New York. It's also suspected that Roy. Cohn was a closeted homosexual. He later went on to advise. Donald Trump. Our current President Rupert Murdoch the Right Fox News and he was also known as a fixer among the political realms. He was also known to be incredibly highly unethical lear on his life he being disbarred and he later succumbed to complications associated with AIDS whoever he did his best to hide this illness. And so again. If you have a chance to check out those in America please check it out. It really diced X. More of that dichotomy that he posed where he probably was a gay man but his outward presentation the way he treated other people was really horrific and the epitome of hypocrisy Ethel. Julius Rosenberg felt the brunt of whatever aggression he for. Some reason held against people who identified as communists and. That's not to say that they were innocent. Because I that definitely. Julius was involved in this whole scandal of recruiting his brother-in-law and connecting the dots for some of these people that were working at the Manhattan project. He definitely was not innocent. But it just for me. The contrast of the level of punishment that they receive versus the people who were key and instrumental impressing some of these secrets. Really Getting Away Scot Free and there was one documentary. I watch where they interviewed. Hall's wife and she still. She was still alive back now. No she is now but she said that he had a moment where he felt so guilty about what was happening to the Rosenbergs that he was determined to go turn himself in and like confessed to everything that he had done and she convinced him not to allow but he wanted to save at the most. He wanted to save Ethel's life because he felt like she was being treated unfairly and there was a huge backlash before all the McCarthyism and everything started to really take shape and grip the nation. There was a big backlash of public sentiment. That felt like Ethel should not have been executed and they were protesting in the streets. And all these things were happening to stop that from occurring and and they're even several petitions to the president himself at the time to turn back the execution order and he refused to do it. So it's just I think it's interesting. I am not saying that they were innocent because I don't think that they were but I do think that they were used as scapegoats. Yeah we buy Cohen and some of these other people to send a message that this wouldn't be tolerated anymore right. I think you're absolutely right. And there was also a lot of anti-semitism associated with scapegoating the rosenbergs. Like Eric said their level of culpability was probably less than other people..

"Lydia. Hey Eric Welcome back thank you. I'm glad to have you. I know that you've been excited about this particular story and I honestly I wasn't excited about in the beginning when you brought it up because I didn't understand But as I started to do my own research not that it's as extensive as your research but I did my own. I started to become more interested in this case and also I learned some things which kind of pissed off at you about because I hate learning things sir. Yeah you're such an American but history has never really been something that I've been into. I guess maybe you're more into history than you realize. I guess I guess my show would be proof that I am history but for some reason I cold war. I hear all this stuff and I'm just like a boring. Don't care but honestly I did learn some things I do feel like maybe I might be more in the history than I thought you said so. So I know you wanNA talk about spies in New Mexico. Yup spies secrets and lies. And we're talking about a particular set of spies not not like. We did with the colts where we had two different things. We're GONNA talk about one particular thing right right during one particular part of US history and New Mexico New Mexico history So let me ask. Okay what do these three things have in common? Trumka Whitesands Bumblebee. I'll tell you transformers. The answer is the hint being our segment spy. I'm excited to see how that all connects a thread through the story and weaving thread in some magical blanket. Is it a Cova blanket? No it's not a covert blanket. Thank God yes. We don't want that. That's better Noda Cove Ed say No. Just say no social distance everybody. Let's break down those connections. Okay of those words. Random RANDOM WORDS RANDOM words right trump white sands and bumblebee. So the overarching connection is spies. New Mexico is home to a bunch of government agencies. Like what are we have? We have the Department of Energy. Here we have a bunch of Research Laboratories. We've got some homeland defense stuff going on here. Yeah with the Research Laboratories Missile testing in parts of the State. Even close to where we grew up right so on the other side so we grew up in Sapporo which is a small teeny tiny teeny tiny little town which translates to help. Help me get me out of here. Your explanation point But behind the famous M mountain in Socorro. They do lots of missile testing. And I don't know if you had this experience growing up there but when I grew up there my house would frequently shake from the sonic booms. Yeah some of the missiles and some of the jets flying overhead and it would get really loud. Oh totally yeah. Yeah in the same people that work on those explosions by a mountain also handle our July Fourth Fireworks. This is really pretty legit display. Yeah I coro yeah I think it's a pretty legit display. Looks like actual bombmakers making fireworks. We went down there last July. Because it's around the same time as my eldest daughter's birthday so we tell her like this is all for you know minus happy birds. But I haven't been there in such a long time and I still see like a total legit firework display. No it is. And where else can you get hurricane? Junior not from New Mexico Google Google L. Hurricane Senior and then Google Al Hurricane Junior and then also fireworks. Yes I'm hot dogs and hamburgers and all that other and actually really nice grassy knoll to avoid the fireworks. The golf courses very lovely on. Yeah it's really pretty anyway. Nobody cares about that. Yes you want people to check it out. Because it's a hidden gem of New Mexico. Get so flustered. I'm so passionate about the fireworks and the Green Chili Cheese fries at El Camino. Oh my God you guys. If you ever go to Sikora you'll have to go to El Camino the best new Mexican food ever and if it's later in the evening asks to be set in the El Matador lounge a lounge. You can have a beer. You can have a beer. Natural Cheese fries. And the booths are like super old from the seventies and the sixties and it really lost in time. It's totally. It's like a total pausing time. It's really the only thing the only complaint I have about the ALCHEMY. No we're really going down a weird round hole. Here is the fact that they put fucking olives on everything love but I love a okay okay. We're not Italian and we're not Greek. So holidays are okay in my book like this is like a Spanish right. Oh Yeah I never thought about that action to whole new then test. Just get out of my car bit and go forward magic lamb for you miss up. Those aren't the words so we're not doing karaoke audience. Let's get back on track. You're distracting US stopping so selfish and let us focus on what we need to tell you about. Spies in New Mexico Gut. It's all about you dare you okay so new. Mexico is home to lots of government agencies. Eric I think you've actually looked up. How many people are actually employed by the state or the government yes sixteen percent of new Mexicans are employed by the public sector? It's a huge amount of people. It is considering how few people who live here. It's like three hundred thousand people so that's your lot so there's a reason why so. Many people I think are clustered around New Mexico or agencies. I should say that kind of goes back to World War Two so even before the. Us got involved in the world. War a gentleman. By the name of Oppenheimer was tasked at developing nuclear weapons and he had been familiar with New Mexico which will talk about a little bit in. He was tasked with developing an atomic weapon. That would hopefully end the war so when we say atomic weapons that's kind of a broad term basically. We're talking about an a-bomb so the a-bomb was used to drop on Hiroshima and Nagasaki Generation. One right nuclear weapons right. Yeah I'm saying right and yeah like I totally know about nuclear weapons. Science man's played it to me actually entails but just space on the seat that we're sharing what it's called is so the people will kind of responsible of navigating where America was going to go with World War Two. They had a choice whether to look at Atlanta invasion of allied countries so allied countries being like Japan or look at a firebombing campaign so basically flying over and dropping arsenal so obviously they decided to lean towards typically firebombing. So essentially what happened is they dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in nineteen forty five and that essentially devastated sixty seven Japanese cities resulting in approximately two hundred and twenty five thousand deaths. Devastating completely devastating. I mean whether you're not you're like Oh yeah America. If would've I still think that's such a huge death toll like so. Many civilians were literally burned alive when they dropped the weapon and then whoever was left probably suffered a horrible long battle cancer yet. The bombs were respectively named fat man. And Little Boy. That sounds innocuous. Yeah I don't know why they came up with those names. I'm sure there's A. There's a reason why those names were selected. They probably meant something so going. Back to how these weapons came to be. We have to go back to what was known as the Manhattan Project and the Manhattan project was primarily housed and developed and nurtured in Los Alamos New Mexico so for those of my listeners that are not from New Mexico. Let me just take a couple of minutes and talk about Los Alamos? So Alamos is Right now a small city I think maybe a few thousand people live. There is right between Espanola and Santa Fe New Mexico and so it's in the north. I was in north central part of the state Very beautiful area Los Alamos itself actually sits on top of a missa which is a flat hill type structure and you can just see this beautiful canyon to the West and then if you go east there's a beautiful nature preserve called device Kavita which is an old Volcano that is inactive gorgeous area. Lots of wildlife beautiful vegetation. Have you ever been there? I believe I have driven through there. I don't believe I've ever stopped. It's like but I do remember it being like very forested and beautiful it is. Yeah so Los. Alamos itself is also very pretty giant pine trees but that's the setting of where the development of the atomic bomb happened. And I think if I'M NOT WRONG. Correct me if I'm wrong that back then in the forties it was top secret bowel. Yeah totally so. You weren't even really hard to get to and that's why you know is probably selected right because it is remote and it is on top of the hill so they could easily block off that entire area from you know access from people right and. I think they did that and pretty sure there is one way in one way out. You know. They're still. There was a gated area. Where people at check in as they came in and check out as they left and even now it's still heavily involved in the development of top secret technology and yet top secret things related to military how we have that. And we also have Sandia national labs here in Albuquerque which is very similar to that but I just wanted to give kind of a rundown Los Alamos is because not many people. Maybe don't know about it. Yeah it's a small town. It's a very small town. So as IRC point now it's still relevant in today's government agencies and government research is the highest income per capita in New Mexico. That that town. Yeah there's a bunch of scientists who making bank. They're not us not no he tried and they said no to go away. Who are you do? You have a degree in and we said laughter. You're not my mom never will be all right. We'll get back to the story back to this story of the bomb cheesy nineteen nineties version dropping own so prior to obviously the final execution of this weapon there had to be testing phase and that testing also occurred here. New Mexico and that was done at the White Sands and what are these things have in common white sands missile range? It's also now known as a White Sands National Park and the site is marked now formerly as the Trinity Test Site. Okay so first of all if you're not from new. Mexico whitesands is amazing gorgeous beautiful. So it's all of these really bright white sand dunes in the middle of like these giant mountains and there's yuccas growing everywhere and cactuses and it's just so pretty there. It's really weird to think about the fact that was like the sight of some nuclear testing. And also it's not very far from where we grew up. No that's true and I'm pretty sure boys to mention a video there so doesn't go down a Midi Boswell. Somebody shot a very well known music video wiped. And it's absolutely gorgeous. I believe it's gypsum. Rock that gypsum. Yeah that's kind of a very fine sand in. It's actually illegal to take the sad. You need to get permission to transport any of Sun and Eric set just stark blue skies and a couple yuccas spattered here. And they're absolutely gorgeous so if anybody's looking for a road trip to New Mexico checkout whitesands. It's worth it. Yeah it's totally worth it especially at night with the moon you can. Even you get permission to camp there. Caution don't go in July waste yes. Family actually will die from Germany. You will die. Yeah you'll die. Don't go hiking there. I mean. Just imagine what it's like when you're like in the snow in the Sun is beating down like br blinding your face. It's the same thing but it's also hot. Yeah so. Prior to the dropping of the bombs they went through testing phase they selected whitesands detest it. It's now known as the Trinity Site and White Fans actually just gained it's National Park status. I believe that just happened like a couple years. Yeah so what they did. Was they built replica? Towns and family homes didn't have like dolls and mannequins. Yeah that was actually a couple. Years back maybe. Like ten. Years ago. Actually dressed as a mannequin mannequin from the site. So like I was wearing like nineteen fifties like you know cute housewife outfit and there was carrying a tray of burnt cookies and they had like melted. Skin all over me yeah. That was my costume. You're really morbid. I thought it was clever. This club yes. This is a matter of like a vision. In my head of this mannequin man with a fedora a sue and like the the house making wife wearing an apron and like poofy scourge basically what I was wearing and carrying Rondo..
