"I'm Sean Carlson. For more than a decade, Joseph Brady had a reputation in Albany as Thie, affable gatekeeper to his longtime bus, Brooklyn assembly member of Peter, a body junior. That is until this week when Brady was arrested for allegedly sexually abusing an 18 year old woman now an investigation by the Albany Times Union as revealed that Brady was also AH, founder and leader of the notorious and violent chapter of the East Coast Syndicate motorcycle gang. Joining us now is Brendan Lyons. He's the managing editor for the Times Union's Capital Bureau and Investigations desk and he reported this story. Hey, Brennan, welcome back to WN. You bet my pleasure. Can you describe radiant and his role in New York politics? Sure, So Joe Brady had previously worked in the administration of Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He was a legislative assistant for that administration. And then maybe around 7 4008. He went to work for Peter, A body in the New York State Assembly and a body is chairman of the Governmental Employees Committee. It's a key role. You want something involving labour to move through that body. Then you're going to deal with Peter a body and Joe Brady, who's a hulking guy £340. He's a former amateur. Mm a fighter and he was a body's gatekeeper. For about 13 years at least, and a lot of the union leader said that they dealt with whom he was an affable guy, very attentive, responsive and that they never would have guessed that he had this double life. As we mentioned Brady, a 40 year old man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly sexually abusing an 18 year old. What do we know about that case? Well, Brady was at his apartment and a 16 year old boy had been dropped there by his parents, apparently because the boy has a drug problem, and they were trying to get him into treatment facility for whatever reason, they felt that staying at Brady's residents was going to be the best. Option for him, which I don't think it turned out to be the case. So the young man 18 year old girl friend joined him And, according to the police, it turned into a binge of alcohol, methamphetamine. Eventually, the boy and somebody else were sent to get Mohr drugs allegedly, And that's when the police believe that something happened that Brady may have sexually assaulted the 18 year old when she was left there alone. He was arrested later that day after police responded when the teenagers fled the residents and called for help. Let's talk about his involvement in that biker gang, The East Coast Syndicate. Can you tell us who they are? And in what Brady's relationship with them is you bet Brady in about 2014 cofounded the capital region chapter of the East Coast Syndicate gang, which has chapters at least throughout the Eastern Seaboard. They started out with about two dozen members. It looks like it has now gone to maybe 40 50. Somewhere in that range. They've had some incidents of violence that they've been connected to. We had video and photos that showed members of the gang appearing to assault a teenager in the city of Troy, near Albany. In one photo I was able to obtain off to the right about 20 yards is Brady. It appears to be him and he's standing there with his arms crossed now that would have taken place after Brady and possibly other members of his club were questioned last year and surveilled by state police for many months due to the homicide investigation. In Saratoga County, And in that case, a 40 year old biker from another club called Rolling Pride vanished in January, 2019 And police believe it was a homicide and that his body was disposed of mine. And so that remains unsolved. Although my understanding is that this biker clubs still remains a focus of that investigation. Is the gang known for being racist or or having links to white supremacists. No, not that I'm aware of. I think sometimes law enforcement museum is racist, but I don't see anything to indicate any kind of white supremacy tend to this. You did get your hands on a copy of the gang's bylaws. What did you find in those laws? Well, his name appears in those bylaws. As the cofounder. You know, it sort of worked out like Robert's Rules of order with the president and vice president were different roles. But then you see things added that you know, you wouldn't see at your local town board such as the title of enforcer and captain who apparently is the only individual in the club allowed to throw punches when it's a member. I remember issue And then a sergeant at arms, whose duties include defending club members from outside threat. The rules conflict with one another. At times, you know, they say members are not allowed to fight one another. And then in another section, it says members if they fight each other, they can't use weapons and things like that. You know, in a legitimate reason for missing a meeting, by the way, if you're in jail or hospital How are people in all about Eve reacting to this news? Does he still have a job after this? No. He was fired by a body The day after his arrest. He was taken into custody. I believe sometimes Saturday evening and brought to the jail around midnight. People were stunned and shocked. You know the people that I could reach in the assembly? If they're telling me the truth, you have no reason to doubt him. They had no idea. He had this double life has Brady himself responded to these allegations, And is he still in custody At this moment? You know he is in jail and he's being held on $50,000 bail. And so there's really been no way for him to communicate with the press at this point, Brendan Lines is managing editor for Investigations in the capital at Albany Times. Union. Brennan Thanks so much for joining us You bet. Earlier.

Commercial Surrogacy: Women Are More Than Wombs
"Writing at the federalist last week Kelly trailer Hay fever remembered sitting in the legislature as the state of Washington legalize commercial surrogacy while surrogacy has long been legal in the US commercial. Surrogacy has not in fact it's banned in most countries because of the potential for human exploitation. Haber was struck by the lack of safeguards in the legislation. No background checks for would be parents. No limits on the number of children they could order. No MINIMUM COMPENSATION FOR SURROGATE MOTHERS. No barriers against pedophile are human traffickers. You might exploit the kids created incredibly in fact. The rights of the children themselves weren't even a part of that two thousand eighteen discussion well this month. New York is following suit. Considering to similar bills that would legalize commercial surrogacy in that state like in Washington. The push in New York is being made with heart. String RHETORIC AND CELEBRITY ENDORSEMENT HABER RIGHTS. But again with almost no restrictions to prevent opening floodgates for the exploitation and commodification of women's bodies were the buying and selling of humans and untold part of this whole story by the way. Is that among those pushing hardest for commercial surrogacy are gay couples. According to an informal study commissioned by the Chicago Tribune in Two Thousand Sixteen ten to twenty percent of donor eggs infertility clinics went to gay men ordering babies through surrogacy. The overall number that represents was at the time skyrocketing having increased by fifty percent in just five years. Now keep in mind. None of ten to twenty percent. Sounds like a low number self identified. Gay People make up only about three percent of the population by the way the sponsors of both bills currently before the New York state assembly. Just like the sponsor of the bill that became law in Washington state are openly gay in New York. Lgbt activists are mostly rooting for the less restrictive of the two bills on the table. Insisting that any safeguards on commercial baby making would quote unfairly harm. Lgbtq families the safeguards that these activists oppose are the same as those that are applied to adoptive families. Home Studies waiting periods protections for birth mother's according to a joint letter by several lgbt rights groups. Such evaluations would be unthinkable for parents. Who Plan to have children through sexual intercourse? Therefore I suppose they're logic goes restrictions should also be unthinkable for couples unable to have procreative intercourse. And who instead wished to buy someone's eggs and rent someone's womb in order to just ate a baby that they'll call their own. What we're seeing here is the logical conclusion of the ideology that brought a same sex marriage in the first place. Gay Unions were sold to the world with the slogan. Love is love now. Of course the only way that heterosexual love is the same. As homosexual love is by making any and all biological aspects of love irrelevant to the conversation in the first place. And that's just another way of saying that biological sex in other words that male and female and procreation are both irrelevant to marriage and now so many of those who intentionally chose sterile unions and argued that procreation is irrelevant to those unions are now demanding children. They're demanding procreation without sex. And they're demanding it as a right and the only way to claim a right to what is impossible because after all same sex couples cannot conceive. Children is through a transactional work around with women whose wombs they wished to rent and other words. The sponsors of these bills want the reproductive abilities of Mother's divorced from the mothers themselves. They want the wombs but not the women. Of course those who suffer in this cynical economic exchange like in each and every chapter of the sexual revolution so far are women and children as Savior points out. Surrogate mothers or station will carriers as they're called are at risk of permanent sterility or other serious health consequences from ovarian hyperstimulation. The children whose rights are not even considered will grow up. And as we've seen in other situations they'll wanna know who they are. And where they came from many in similar situations understandably condemn how they were conceived bought and sold like products. The European Parliament has already denounced surrogacy as an act of violence against women and countries like India who citizen stand to profit from renting their wombs. Rich Westerners have recognized the built in exploitation in the practice. An outlawed it yet if activists and legislators get their way in New York it will soon welcome commercial surrogacy and by doing so. They'll be endorsing. The idea. Families including children are commodities to be bought and sold. But it's always the women and children especially the most vulnerable ones who will pay the highest

It's gonna be called the president is tweeting ready. Eight is twenty eight minutes after six o'clock in the morning and President Trump already when I became president. This is the President Trump this morning. Correct. Frankie. Six twenty five three minutes ago when I became president ISIS was out of control in Syria and running rampant since then tremendous progress made especially over the last five weeks caliphate will soon be destroyed unthinkable two years ago negoti negotiating or preceding well in Afghanistan after eighteen years of fighting. You know, I have to give the president credit. You got to give the president credit? It was rampant. Isis. You forget the people forget can't win. And that's and you have to look President Trump gets into office. I I gotta tell you what I never. I never knew didn't have an inkling, and I imagine you to listen, you didn't have an inkling that President Trump will be the guided shutdown vicious that Nazi like group known as ISIS, and all but destroy. And that's what this is what this rate is why the president tweets because everybody when I watch Dan Coats, and you know, he's he's the head of the director of national intelligence for the country doing good there. Doing a great job. And he explained to us where we still got to go after ISIS. The whole news media made a negative turn an attack Donald Trump on that. Of course, he's got no choice, but to tweet he's he's and it's true. What he said ISIS what they were. What about it? You forget it was the JV. Don't worry about them. Oh, the president ever jumps on that. Right. So you gotta give you gotta give credit where it's due. I'm just saying and then and then this to this too. And I don't mean is land this. But I find all of this fascinating. Forgive me. I'm hopelessly addicted to bother ticks just find it fast.

We're gonna we're gonna continue believing in this country you now they're trying to take God out of the pledge allegiance to hear that. That's not gonna happen. We're just gonna keep fighting. We're going to support our friends in the Middle East because then somebody some anti Donald Trump person, but guilty or picture of a general flame picture of Mike a Manafort a Paul Manafort of Michael Cohen, guilty guilty guilty. They are so obsessed with taking down the president people guilty and all the all this. When you see all those people that I just mentioned not one had anything to do with, quote, unquote, Russia collusion, not one they've got nothing guilty guilty guilty. And that's what they Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler and everybody keeps saying they are all looking well, this person was taken now Roger stone, his n-. What is this does Russia collusion? If you start from. A to point B, and you methodically think it out. Why did why did this pro for for for Russia collusion, and he's going on getting everything, but that he's collateral damage over and that's what this is. And when I see someone online that doesn't like the president's. They put pictures of these people up and say guilty guilty guilty guilty. It just shows you that you they the person that put this in in the people that can stand the president are so misguided this so misguided the shows me that you are backing the deep state and all the civil of fronts, these sympathy civil affronts to us as citizens man, you teach is going to start taking things taking people out if you don't have anything that the whole Mullah problem the thing. I keep about if you and I are to do the investigation, and you know, a business, right? We've all had that as a small businessman check that out for me. We hate what? Again, the tax Bill check that out because I paid that. And the government is very, greedy. Go check in. And you could check it out. If that if I said to the person, it's a two years it cost me millions of dollars. I would stop it. Stop it after two months. You have you found anything yet? You got nothing. Well, then then it's okay. Because because if you can't find it v in two months, it's not there. Two years old. I'm thirty million dollars later, and we don't have the ability and citizens to go stop it. Oh, anyway. So when I say something positive about all your pro Trump. I just want everybody believe in the country. It's a it's a we're doing great just everybody. Relax could just come down. For goodness. Makes me crazy that people get nuts. 6:33 Frankie five boroughs is here. Big Alice here, and we got a very interesting story. Immigrants have a major impact on New Jersey economy, Abbott. Did you see this story? Very interesting. I did see that story, according to one financial website imigrants have a major economic impact on the Garden State using twenty different educators. His wallet hub is name of this. Website has calculated that New Jersey is the third most affected by the presence of immigrants in the United States. New Jersey's tied with California for the highest percentage of foreign born workers with an educational background in science technology, engineering or mathematics, see that's that's kind of legal immigrants that you want right there in jersey has always been like that. So that's a bit of a good news. When it also ranks it Gordon state as having the most impacted workforce by immigrants in the nation starting what would my grandfather, I will go into the break. My grandfather comes over he worked for Thomas, Edison. My grandfather area he went in. And it was in Menlo Park New Jersey, and he was like a laborer for income netizens plan over there, then and my theory is that my grandfather, invented the lightbulb and Thomas Edison, took credit for the Italians of everything you see is. Working my grandpa Rosero. What does that what does that it electable? But he. Going to watch. I'll take care. It's. Imagine imagine. What is this? Look at the data. I call it the lie. Enlightened yourself with a sandwich. The right back lunches on me. I got got a patent office. Staten Island is there he invents the telephone. And some waspy Scottish guy Alexander Graham Bell. The immigrants got no respect back. Then. Now, we just fled the country illegally. Okay. But back then they invented della phone Alexander green belt and quickly evermore. Regulated the way the history goes is that I think it was maybe had a little fair on his wife got mad and his wife sold Meiji's plans to Alexander Graham Bell is that roughly what it is pretty much. I know so. Mayor mayor g did invent the telephone right? No question about it. And you could see the house where he did in Staten Island. And if you people go to that museum where he lived with Garibaldi, they could actually see the brick that we got you for Christmas years ago, but he was bankrupt. He was he was defrauded by some some some hawks tres, basically and he couldn't renew his patent. So he he was in very very poor financial health and physical health. And so was his wife is wife was suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. And so his wife sold his drawings and all his devices. Secondhand dealers to raise raise some money. My understanding is he couldn't afford to renew his patent and then separately. Years later bell came out with his version of the telephone which was very similar, but because he couldn't afford to renew the patent never got. That his wife did did that. Or does she do behind his back? That's a good question to.

"And i wanted to say that one of the things i think the problem in this country is i it with the left is um liberals find it okay only for minority self identify word if you're a minority you consider your mind minority you can count on your show as a minority but if anybody else does it lacked what becomes a problem and that counter to what the whole country what all about the cost of you gotta so if you're a majority and you sell to identify that crime in front her you know you know it's such an interesting point jack and i i didn't wanna make this a political issue at all but but i think to some extent you are you are a bit right now it's insane obviously there have been a lot of you know there have been a lot of the the injustices put you know perpetuated against many minorities over the years and now that's wrong and i don't blame people that are black or jewish irs panic or whatever else for wanting to rectify those but you think when if someone gets elected who's the first black mayor the first black governor or the first dominican represent of from a certain community they they take a great deal of pride in that but could you ever envision a scenario wherein harlem for instance a all white democrat where to get elected and he proudly proclaims himself the first white elected official in harlem in a generation would not happen it would not happen or in bahrel park if you know or or a christian and this is goes to show you that there are racial patterns and ethnic patterns to how we vote but imagine going not going to borrow park and publicly proclaiming proudly that you're the first christian to get elected to the new york state assembly and borrow park in generation so i i do think there's something to that i think.
