"Here shortly. So James, what's in the diary that we're not supposed to talk about? Well, Tucker did a 20 minute long segment on that very issue. Some ten days ago. My regret was that was on a Friday. I'm afraid it didn't get the distribution. Well, a daily mail, a daily mail reporter about ten days ago came out. And reported that now the authorities, the Department of Justice, is investigating the source for selling it, project gurus bought the rights to it. We never published it, Charlie, because I couldn't, I couldn't verify that what Ashley wrote in the diary actually happened. And I have an ethical responsibility to corroborate allegations. That's a bar higher than many other reporters who just report accusations. I choose not to do that. But the daily mail, to me, the story here is not what Ashley Biden wrote, perhaps in a drug rehab clinic in a diary. The story is the unbelievably historic constitutional violations of the FBI rating journalists homes. And pointing guns at my head and taking my anonymous source notebooks. That's the real story. Well, and also they ask, so you call your attorney. Correct me if I'm not mistaken. You say, hey, can I call my attorney? You unlock the phone, call your attorney, and as soon as you're done with the call, they take the phone out of your hand so that you don't have to unlock the phone. Is that correct? Yes, they came in my apartment with guns and bulletproof vests and battering rams. And then, of course, I asked to speak to my lawyer. Of course, I don't have my lawyers phone number memorized. Think of it. Whose phone number phone numbers do you have memorized? Probably just your mom and dad. So then I say, may I use my phone, they say, would you like to use the phone on the nightstand? I said yes, I proceed to unlock my iPhone. And as soon as the phone goes to voicemail, they snatch the phone out of my hand and put it in an evidence bag, which they leave open. So I testified before Congress before members of Congress two months ago, Charlie. And this is a very nuanced point, but it's an important one. The moment that they cross into your apartment and take your journalistic notes and anonymous sources, the constitutional violations are infinite. There's no, there's no way they can make me whole after violating my rights like that. That's the gravest violation of constitutional rights imaginable and the reporters committee and left leaning organizations are angry about it. Can you think of any other case? No, because this is about journalism in the First Amendment. And that's the real story here. Not what, I mean, some people are making it about what Ashley Biden alleged. I'm not going to go there because I have not been able to verify whether that is true. But what is true is that the Joe Biden's Department of Justice is targeting people who are investigating him and actually Biden's lawyer, woman named Roberta Kaplan, is the same lawyer for the daughter in law of the prosecutor who got the warrants against me. This is like banana republic. Russian North Korea stuff that we're living through and this judge in New York is it's on her desk to unseal the affidavit. She has a constitutional obligation to unseal the affidavits. And I think that she will. I mean, it's so extraordinary so many levels. I just want everyone listening to understand that you have a journalist who is exposing the Democrat party and the left, vaccine companies, and what do they do? They go bring in their secret police. Just so everyone's clear, the daily mail reported that in the diary Ashley Biden wrote extensively about Joe Biden showering with her and acting in appropriate to her possibly sexually. That's the daily mail that reported.

"Welcome back to Charlie Kirk show. Great to be with you, Charlie. What a big story this isn't South Carolina. Tell us all about it. Well, this is a democratic candidate for the United States Senate, running in the primary, the primary was last night, June 28th, which is also my 38th birthday, so quite a bit. It's also Elon Musk's birthday, by the way, June 28th is quite a day. And this is the crystal Matthews using racially charged language while encouraging illicit campaign tactics. She was caught on a, in a she was talking to someone inside of a jail. And it was a recorded line and a whistleblower provided this to us. Some of these quotes are pretty incendiary. This is the candidate. And by the way, she won last night. So now she's going to face Tim Scott. The South Carolina U.S. senator in the general election. She said, quote, where's my dope money, my duffel bag boys? Give me that dope money. Honestly, and I'm an N word at heart. I love black people. We need folks that can wear black at night and take down their effing yard signs. I mean, just this is just some of the most shocking things you'll over here. Now, just this week, yesterday, the house legislator in South Carolina has put together an ethics committee to investigate this woman who has just won last night the primary in South Carolina. And a lot more to say, but that's the gist. And so how did you obtain that tape of her saying that? Well, we have a source that provided it to us. That's the most James don't keep answer I've ever heard. I mean, we have people everywhere. I know. I'm just saying it's typical James O'Keefe. We have a source, I believe it, done. Okay. Yes. And sometimes, you know, as you know, and historically, we've gone undercover to infiltrate, but a lot of these things, we don't go undercover at all. Someone who has access to the individual comes to us. So we didn't seek out Matthews. I didn't say I'm going to go target Matthews. It was actually someone had this and provided it to us from a jail and The Associated Press is covering it, Charlie. We have all the local TV stations. This is really extraordinary. Matthews goes on local 5 television yesterday and is interviewed for 30 minutes and she doubles down on the dope money at the illicit campaign contribution. She doesn't deny it, usually people say that's not me. I was taken out of context. No, she says I was caught in the private conversation. Of course, that's the whole point. People were honest in private when they're speaking one on one. So James, I want to ask you, what is the latest from the FBI rating your apartment? This is something that really didn't get the coverage I think it deserved at the time or sense. And so the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided your apartment and also your colleagues apartment because of some connection to Joe Biden's daughter's diary. Walk us through this. Well, the latest developments there is that we had a whistleblower inside the FBI come to us two months ago and gave us a document, a restricted document, classified document inside the FBI, where the FBI considered project veritas news media. That's very significant because the prosecutors in New York, which got the warrant to raid my house, which is unconstitutional and illegal, said that I was not news media. The judge rejected the FBI's the U.S. attorney's claim that we're not in his media and said that we're protected by the First Amendment. Assigned appointed a special master, this is regarding the Ashley Biden diary that was provided to us. The FBI tried to claim that it was stolen. We didn't steal it. Even if it was stone, it's not illegal for us to publish stolen material. So the latest development is that we filed a motion before this judge to get our stuff back. They have our phones and laptops. They need to give it back. This is an unconstitutional rate. It's so unconstitutional. The American civil liberties union is defending project veritas, as is the reporter's committee. Charlie, you can't probably name one other conservative or perceived to be conservative organization, defended by the ACLU. And the issue here, the constitutional violation is that they got a warrant and they're sealing the probable cause against a journalist. So it's sort of like them saying, let me go with you all your anonymous sources and reporters notebooks to make sure you're not breaking any laws. That's illegal in the United States. You can't do that. And their argument is premised upon the fact that we're not journalists and the FBI whistleblower released a document saying that we are journalists. So this is a pretty amazing case. And the judge will have to rule on this, and we should get that ruling.

"I want to play this. So you also and we'll keep you for one more segment drew. You also went to the pride parade. In Los Angeles, that was probably out of everything you've covered in the last couple of weeks. Correct me if I'm wrong, that's where you received the most threats. Is that right? Recently, you know? I'm sitting last couple weeks. Yeah, last couple of weeks, like you say. But the trans people were more angry at you at doxxing you than the pro pro abortion people. Is that fair to say? Which ones? The trans people in LA. I mean, it was LA antifa they all mobilize and it was crazy because they were coming after me just because I was filming what they advocate to do, which is involve children in their events. And then they turned around on me like I'm the crazy pedophile when it's them. So drew, you were on the front lines of the pride deal. That's not the right way to put it. You were on the front lines covering the pride deal. Is that fair to say? Yes, yes. And some of your clips went totally viral of young children that were in front of fully naked gay men. That's happening in Seattle. Recently. But pride LA provocative still pretty bad there were males with fake breasts out riding bicycles. So that was happening at pride LA to that extent. And so how young were these children? Little kids. Some of them looked as young as maybe four years old. 5 years old. One of the worst things that I saw in pride LA was there was this trans freak on top of an eggplant emoji float that was literally talking down to children in the crowd. Saying that we have lube. Literally telling children we have lube and then like you could see the clip and I pan over and it's a mother with her two children that look between maybe four and 5 years old and you got to ask yourself, this is not tolerance. This is not liberal. This is not inclusive. This is exposing children to just disgusting things. And that is the line that should be the line for everybody. And so now, as I said, somewhat unrelated, but related piece of tape on a play here. So I've been max never heard of that before. I think it's a child. So it's a leaked baymax video from Disney, the Disney corporation that shows a man recommending the type of feminine pads that he uses. This is Disney. Play cut 69. Excuse me, which of these products would you recommend? Oh. Wow. These are the tampons I usually use. Thank you. I prefer pads. They're more comfortable for me. Thank you. I always get look at the T-shirt. Thank you. Get unscented. Yo, my daughter loves these. These might be easier if it's her first period. These are really environmentally friendly. And so all in one, they have to add the climate change thing at the end. Yeah,.

Conservatives Won the Roe Narrative War Thanks to Drew Hernandez

"Won the narrative war that we were supposed to lose on Friday Saturday Sunday Monday is because your footage. And by the way, this is not just speculation drew. So we were told by everybody the following. Rove versus wade comes down and it's going to hurt our midterm chances. You heard something similar to that, right? Well, a generic congressional ballot before versus after roe versus wade, where on June 21st, Republicans were leading four on the generic ballot, and now we're leading by 5 on the generic ballot. Wow. You know, I think part of that could be the response as well. The violent response to this. I mean, you see this kind of footage. You see the way that these people respond to this type of thing. And I think a lot of pro life organizations that have been putting out a lot of education and media and social media informing the public just exactly what this is and what it looks like. And then you see people, yes, but then the other part is the other part is when you see a picture with a woman who's fully pregnant and she writes on their not yet. Exactly. And it all comes together. I don't think that's persuasive. I mean, a person is come on. I mean, it's not science. It's not science fact. It's evil. Listen, Charlie, when a regular person is like sitting on social media to go to your point and that pops up on their feed, they immediately say to themselves, that is, that's not the side I want to be on.

Why Drew Hernandez Is Becoming One of the Best Frontline Journalists

"And this is why we're so excited to have you and partner with you and do things, which is this kind of grassroots you frontline journalism. Because it's hard, right? I mean, you get sweaty, you don't get to sit in an air conditioned office, right? And so just talk a little bit about that because you're kind of becoming known as kind of one of the, if not the best front lines journalist where, you know, when the sparks are flying and antifa comes out, drew Hernandez is there, but talk about the hours, talk about the Gritty, gritting the side of it, right? Yeah, I mean, you know, shout out to the team though. The front lines team, they really helped me with booking the flights and getting me where I need to be. The logistics. The logistics, right? But like the actual on the ground when you're on the ground, it's a lot of instincts. You have to know what's coming. You have to know what you need to film at the right time to kind of have to kind of have a feel of the crowd. I mean, it's a difference environment. I mean, I view it kind of like, I don't want it to put it this way, but every kind of arena is like a different level, like a video game. Like that's how I view it. I don't treat it that way because you could get really different challenges. Different challenges, you know what I mean? There's different levels. There's like expert hard, medium, easy. It really is. I mean, for instance, if you go to Portland, you go undercover with antifa. That is probably the hardest thing to do right now is going to cover and get that kind of footage with them. But you go to like a protest somewhere in Arizona where it's not that hard. So you kind of have to what I always encourage people is not everyone can do what I do. I think a lot of people try to. I mean, you can. You can just run out there with a camera and film something, but to consistently keep doing this on like a monthly, weekly basis, it does take an amount of skill. Precision has involved precision because you have to be able to see things. Like when you see people like Savannah Hernandez or Julio Rojas with town call Julio is great. Julio with town hall media or Jorge Ventura with daily college. There's also a lot of these people are extremely talented. They're very talented. They know what they're looking

From the Frontlines to the Clandestine with Drew Hernandez

"I'm joined with the great drew Hernandez, drew, welcome back, man. I want to brag on drew here. Drew flew out to Washington, D.C. and anticipation of the roe V wade ruling. Drew, you kind of camped out there waiting for it and drew got some of the most compelling footage right as the roe versus wade ruling was announced, both positive and negative footage. And you also got into that kind of altercation with one of the guys there in D.C. doing some great front lines reporting. Yeah, Charlie, I mean, I mean, it's a team effort. I know you and I were coordinating on when we should go. And I think the best decision was to just kind of like stake it out and wait because it's a monumental. This is American history. Yes. It's huge. This is something that we didn't want to miss if we did. I think we would have really regretted it. But I was kind of like running some of the numbers. And this is, this is grassroots type of stuff right here. This is definitely God's work moving through us and what we're doing being in the right place at the right time. That's always been my experience. God directs our steps. You always end up in the right place at the right time because God is real and he's leading you. And I think in totality, our entire front lines on the ground just my Twitter account alone, the viewership was 7.5 million crazy. That's just Twitter. Just Twitter, and if we add the Tucker hit that I did, which is obviously our row coverage. That's over 10 million views. And we don't even know the re postings on Instagram and other

I don't use tv. i do have my sights set on it. If monetization comes to canada. I believe i only know of the you. Ask the uk. Have it right now i think. Igt monetization maybe even started part. Oh no no Act think even for those two countries. It's i think you need like x. Amount of followers. I i'm not too sure. But i think it was a big push that instagram had in mind. And then reels were just something they had to mobilize so quickly and and we saw a real mobilize very fast right after Technique was abandoned india. Right has i think I believe the us or india. One of the two are instagram's number one user based i- population. I'm not sure which one goes one in two. So i think they saw like okay. We'll take talk and talk with huge in. India got band so i think they were like well. Let's let's captured audience. Let's incorporate reels. They mobilized that and reels is given to india i than it slowly trickled down to other places So i think they kind of put a bit of a stop on their. Id tv plans. Because of reels. In my opinion. I haven't heard much about it since Since june of twenty twenty actually But i do use it for reposting my lives like we said use all those format so i i i tell people go live once a week. Reposted tv. But a big thing. That i do it i g is i. Don't share it to my main feet and this is a big takeaway on for anybody who does want to use lives as tv When you when you re post that live hasn't an jv video first of all the lives probably like what thirty or forty five minutes hour. It's long rape you get the option to put on your main feed and your tv. It always goes But yet the option of put on your main feet to. I always tell people. Don't put on your main feet so don't put soda. Pop up. But it just on your. Id tv. anybody wants to see it. They can do it. You're still checking off the algorithm box by posting.

"Maybe forty eight hours right. Maybe only three times a week because it gives each post the maximum lifespan to be shown as opposed to a new post coming in replacing. That i found. I've sent some changes in the algorithm realistically and also just content creation. Made mccown getting better. Where i am now on the opposite first of all huge disclaimer. I tell people right host whatever you can whatever consistency means to you but make it consistent. Yeah exactly because we see these people here like me say something like what i'm about to say they might be like okay. I got a post three times a day for thirty days straight. And then they'll maybe they'll do it which is amazing. They learned so much thir- burnt out and they leave. Yeah they're done with social media right and that's the sad unfortunate thing so i always say people like you know as a huge priority number one if you can only consistently post three times a week but that's gonna keep you doing it for six months straight do that that so much more beneficial to your brand and your your your growth than a thirty day sprint two months inactivity by an getting back to it and trying to revamp your your account so consistency is key and it has different meanings for everybody in everybody's lifestyle huge huge factor But now i have realized that while you might see some of your posts initially perform a get fewer lights and engagement in comments when you post multiple times a day. I have found the benefits of possibly having one of my three posts. Hit the explore. Page trill in hashtags or after real just real vitality right the chance that three posts have as opposed to just one post is totally worth it for me as a poachers posting one time per day. Let's use multiple formats like you said which is huge. And that is what instagram loves. The algorithm want using both formats. Instagram wants us using multiple formats. And when you're posting multiple times a day it's easier And the other thing. I will say to is while you might find. Some of your initial post have lower reach when you post multiple times a day. Altogether three posts usually have way better reach than one post. And i can vouch for that. Because i've been sticking to. Because i want summer vacation i can do it again. Mike consistency means something different for these two month and will in september. But i've been posting about three times a day. And i think i got like four point. Five million accounts reached for the month of july. Pretty good for the name. I think before that even with real going viral. Like some of my best reels were back in june. So this is even factoring in those Before that when. I would post his one time. A day I think i got like one point. Eight million accounts reach almost almost triple right or two and a half times the mass equation. Pice where you to all bush as i do that the range drops and said year but if you go like it's you tonet a hundred plus one hundred edge when they get this wrong now to the was like sixty five or seventy five at six hundred fifty but if you have strain it's it's not..

"I like you said which is great to highlight on first of all. It is really important to prioritize the people who are already so like you said replying to comments. You're getting the dmz. You're getting Dot number one priority. Because if someone's already doing it you already have them as an audience gray someone. Who's supporting you without you even asking so you wanna you wanna really just reinforce that i will comment on those people just kind of like a scratch. Your back you scratch mine kind of situation And when i started. I had probably a core group of fifty to a hundred people again. Who at that time. Where my tears. Because i wasn't i hadn't built up to a point yet where i was I guess like the big fish who gets on suggested for list and gets all these people who are these small business owners and wanna just find one account to follow instead of fifty right. But as i was kinda growing to be that i had fifty to one hundred accounts of my peers who we would support each other right. I was looking at their content feeling inspired by. They were doing the same. They were commenting on my post. I was coming. There's very different from like engagement groups because we were all doing it of our own accord. What each other was sharing right. They liked what. I was sharing collaborating very very legitimate. Is what i would say So like you said super important to strengthen the connections and foster the Have the people already have within. Yes it is very important especially on instagram with how the algorithm works now and how organic reach works now very important to go out and do that. Groundwork yourself right. Knock on those doors and handle those pamphlets about your business Basically is how. I compare commenting other people's posts. Every time you comment. You are leaving a little tiny billboard that someone might see that brings them back to your page or your content right and and it can feel overwhelming because like i said tiny tiny billboard so you might as well this huge thing. It's not going to have the same conversion. But you never know. Maybe someone will pin your comment. And maybe they're a big creator right. Maybe you have post notifications on for them. And you're intentionally as soon as they post leading thoughtful or funny or interesting or collaborative comments on their post. They're pinning it and all of a sudden you're the first thing everybody seeing every wants to engage with you ever wants to like your comments and reply. That's a huge strategy right. They're all about just getting your name out there. So i do a mix of or i did a mix on on big accounts but also on similar sized accounts to just kind of build those relationships realizing that not everybody is going to be head off everybody but don't be discouraged. Just keep trying build those relationships and give the engagement you want to receive. I find it interesting. Because i use it billboard. I'm dan done because then you have a. He'd line that follows you around what's use people can say what you do about it being like that on instagram. So it was like. Oh my gosh.

I care sells really started in the social media marketing Kind of industry each year on on instagram. Which i still think we call it. The carousel community. I still think it is the most support of unity and niche on instagram hams down people interacting and engaging with each other now. Obviously people have to be realistic about that. And think especially coaches and whatnot and strategists yet. Remember what works in this community though you have to make sure and you also can leverage it or may can happen in other communities like fitness food right entertainment. So that's the challenge. That many people i work with have needed help with overall but yet carousels they do seem overuse overused in my community where everyone is doing them. But if you branch out into spaces where people aren't they are still like not. Even they're not even they're golden age yet like they will be there for sure but it is such it is such a high dwell time piece of content where someone is not only just like looking at your single post maybe reading a bit of your caption commenting on moving on. Someone can be spending ten times more time on that post because they're swiping through ten slides and engaging touching the screen. They're liking their saving. That's why love this content. It's the conversion on your call to action is in my opinion unrivalled by any other boats. I this what i've found. I'm thinking my clients. A clem is one of the things midday thing have a client on.

Cropping up all the time is people have a little bit of jealousy thing around here and i. i think i've heard this enough to not blush much when i hear this still. It does happen As we are on video right now But but yeah it has become factor in my personal brand which initially i used to kind of pass off the comment. It's like i said. I used to just laugh nor it but i think there's an actually become my favorite example of the power of personal branding On social media but also standing out right and my favorite thing now is telling people find that one thing those two or three things that are going to get people talking about you or remembering you right for some people. It is their their strength on live video and their instagram lives. And maybe they Host those like a talk show and their amazing for some. Maybe it's the real for some. Maybe they're not even putting their faith in their content and it's all just amazing care assault designs right we see knows especially Whatever it takes there are so many different ways to work to make it work for you but you have to stand out So for me. I've i've related started to kind of embrace that like the jokes. People make all start making those jokes to bring in my hair. I recently got a hair day and it was a few weeks ago now in his super short and like oh no. There goes my personal brand but i had yet.

"And now we bring our listeners to our most beloved segment on the show which we love to call fresh badboy at has. We'll just sang me now. Bring you to fresh hell a segment in which we introduce the audience to batch thing that's happening in the real world that you may not believe is happening but is indeed actually happening. Will you are here to tell us. The tale of the maga artur who cast the one and only and i know. We mentioned him earlier in the show. James o'keefe in oklahoma. Please tell me this is the musical oklahoma. Yeah it is actually yes. Okay so wait really. Yeah oh i was. Just i was just kidding around not james. He's playing curly okay. So here's the holy shit. So james o'keefe you may know him as the guy who dressed up as the pimp that one time as the guy who does antics you know for for donald trump and the trump world sat. He has a background in theatre and so often people say that sort of the rosetta stone for understanding. James o'keefe's character. It is is that he's sort of kid. He's a failed theory get. I was greeted a couple weeks ago. You know of course. I'm on the project. Veritas mailing list. And whether you want to would or don't want to. You're never getting off of it and normally you know it's like we got another facebook whistle blower whatever but this one was james o'keefe cast is currently in oklahoma and i thought what and so james o'keefe yes we'll be playing the role of curly in the musical oklahoma. Curly's the main guy. And so i thought now what kind of guy cast james o'keefe as lead in his musical and then i fell down this whole about a gentleman named brian cloudless. Who's this kind of like. He's this musical theater director and more. Recently he was. I believe roughly a year ago. He was sort of cancelled in the southern theater scene. For having like what people described very abusive and dangerous working environments on his musicals and then he became kind of a maga- guy out of that. But i mean this guy puts on some of the craziest productions. And when i'd like to share some examples of this i would not only not mind i would actively encourage. Please do mr like you know in rushmore. When they do. The movie rushmore. They do these like incredibly elaborate musicals. Of course who could forget. I mean this is like that. Come to life okay. So this guy so one of the things he got in trouble with this kind of puts you in the guy who might cast james o'keefe in a musical so he had this he did in two thousand eighteen he did this staging of titanic where they staged it over what looks like a real river in the cast is like dunked in and out of the river. So there's one gentleman that. I think the lead he. The water was acted way. Away was what that water has had bacteria in it so bacteria in the water. And i'm quoting here from an article by arts. At l. dot. Org that was flagged by the new york. Times is so palm deb. Bacteria in the water causes most mosquito bitten leg to swell and eventually a tendon burst. This guy was hospitalized for like a week because of the zany this really death. Defying titanic another production of the little mermaid. This person fell off zip lines. They felt like eight feet. And that's the little mermaid. That's not like stunts heavy. show right. it's not like the spiderman musical right. this is the little fucking mermaid. And it's at the y. Where is he doing this. This isn't broadway. What theater no. No this is kind of just in regional theatre. Okay okay this makes it. They got to make a movie about this. I'm sorry like there's something that i don't know what it is but just like really insane productions of musicals an particularly with you have this angle that guys this like a huge trump fan who's putting on these like grandiose musicals where people are like getting injured and stuff i mean. There's just something very cinematic about it. This guy thinks he's d w griffith. He thinks that he really does to his core. And what you're reading to me. On paper i mean i would love to see footage of it or see it in person because okay first of all. This guy's name is pronounced. Brian cloudiness right. So mr cloudless. I bet if i actually saw a production it would be somewhat underwhelming on paper. This guy. sounds like a real epic fyodor guy who despite risk to himself and his faithful cast and crew is willing to put the art and his vision above the possible bodily physical harm. I'm not saying that is necessarily the best way. Go about these things but at least in some sort of i know even dickensian way i should. I should say sweat. He seems her mother like very bad stuff. Okay like what like what well like casper. Saying he was encouraging cast members to use the n. Word more than was in the script. I'm not endorsing that. Let's back his. I obviously ever have those moments. You ever have those moments where it's like someone's like you'll be like. I didn't think that guy was so bad. And someone's like oh. I didn't i didn't know about that. I guess what i'm saying is on paper. It sounds like you would write a really. I know we referenced. The coen brothers lot on this show. He does sound like this interesting. If not just completely laughable and morally denouncing coen brothers character but in the real world bet. If you showed me footage of this guy's art it would look like a children's theater production where someone just happened to get maimed. Well it's very ambitious. They paid thirty grand to get a real live helicopter for a production of gone. Pretty good but you know. I think the larger political import here is is that this guy appears we've been criticized in the regional theater scene for his unsafe. Work environments. That people were you know allegedly and then he just makes this hard pivots being a magazine corn so he cast james o'keefe he. He posed for a picture with the cure shaman which became a little awkward after january sixth. So this is kind of a classic arcade particularly in the arts is when you know ca guy kind of gets run out of out of whatever. Artistic industry is and then becomes a A big right wing guy. When does the james o'keefe thing premier. I believe later this year. And it's are you going. Gosh i mean you know. The prospects of seeing james o'keefe saying saying like like a cowboy.

"Is no other word for it. Yeah and to build on that point a little bit you know the park police you know committed this atrocity in then once they had beaten everyone out of the park then trump walks across lafayette park to hold up a bible and get his picture taken in front of. This is giving the impression of very clear impression to anybody who has watching it. That's why that had happened. You know like they clear the park and then here he comes to do a little a little picture show. I believe someone asked him. Is that your bible. And he said it's a whether or not that happened. You know so that trump could do the pr move. He turned it into a pr move immediately. The whole point was to try to get some media coverage you know whether among conservatives or otherwise make him look like a big strong tough guy who beats up. You know a protesters Black lives matter and so on and so forth The only reason they're mad at the media is because the strategy didn't work you know it made him look like Just absolutely brutal. You know a coward who who couldn't face. The protesters narron had his dunes. Go out and beat everybody up. And if you know if he had gotten the headlines like the newspaper in turkmenistan or something. That's like wow president lifts up this golden bar. They would be celebrating. It would be. Yes mr trump. You showed those hippies so the complaints you know it's like you're trying to work the refs here. Don't pull the wool over our eyes. Right and Something else i talk to you about was a consistent. Fem- in your writing for the past. Shall we say year or year and a half as the virus has been destroying large chunks of the world and our civilization in america. As well as i read in your intro you wrote what i thought was a very poignant piece back in november about how quote america's narrow idea of freedom is literally killing us. And that is the title of your piece in november. But correct me if i'm wrong that has been consistent theme of your writing for the past year and a half definitely end probably before that too but i think the pandemic was is really just an excellent explanation. It's still holding today. You know you look at the best thing. Trump ever did was get a good supply of the vaccines you know he funded all of the various companies operation warp speed. We had sort of first bite at the apple is all the phaser dern stuff. We had a huge supply before almost any other country and we had a massive head start on the european union. European union was way behind the curve. You know they they were trying to cheap out on their their doses but sense over the last month or so had like a two to three month. Head start on the on the europeans there. They've ca- almost caught up to us. You know vaccination has has stalled out in a lot of southern states is almost totally stalled out in mississippi. I think thirty five percent of the population has even one shot. I think vermont it's verging and certainly within the next couple of weeks. All the rich european countries are going to pass us up. You know. I didn't think i thought for once america was gonna do good at something which was basically just by a big stuff and give it away for free. Nope people won't take it. They won't take the vaccine. Or you know like the societies in the south or two broken for people to be able to like get it. You know the when we talk about this we obviously have to be somewhat delicate in certain parts of the conversation. Because there's the several toronto's of people there are some who are just completely brainwash individuals in varying socio economic brackets. Who really do think that the vaccine is trying to kill you and somehow that can coexist in their head with donald. Trump is the greatest thing that god has ever created. There are other people who and they've said this. This has been illustrated in various news reports. That they either don't have time to because the working too much they don't know how to get it or there's just a very terrible breakdown of communication and messaging apparatus to actually get these more economically encumbered individuals out to get the the shots in their arms. Yeah yeah exactly. And i think you see all of those things in the south you know. You have very very unequal place. People are worried they have no sick leave so they're worried that if they get the side effects and they see they have to take a day off work going to lose their job or they don't believe you know there's all this messaging that the vaccine rathers is free which it is legally speaking. But they don't believe that that could possibly happen. In the united states and in fact people have illegally charged for the vaccine the predatory providers who are they just. We're going to scam. Sixty bucks out of some even though the department you know of health and human services said we can't do it so yeah i. It's like just a profound social breakdown and i think To the question you were asking. It's a lot of belief that like freedom is just license the ability for me to do whatever i want and i think the among conservatives. That's the most apparent recently with a texas governor. Abbot had this tweet. That was like i've signed. Legislation forcing businesses to prohibiting them from having any kind of mask mandate or vaccinations record requirement for people to be able to come in and also. There's no reason why you'd ever need that. Yeah and this. You know being a triumph of freedom like forcing others to do what the conservatives want what the city has told you to do. Yeah the exact yes and he said it specifically like with texas is totally open with no regulations and requirements as adam. Sora pointed out at the time on twitter that like you just described regulation a requirement. And you know the whole. The pandemic the most fervent mobilization the most violent and concentrated types of political mobilization around the pandemic specifically was to stop the government from doing anything about it that like having a mask mandate or having you know various like social distancing requirements or ventilation upgrade requirements or. Really anything at all. That was regarded as the horrible abridgement of freedom. And meanwhile you look at a country like vietnam. I believe they have had some outbreaks since then because of this new variants and they have gotten that many vaccines yet. Unfortunately but for all twenty twenty they had only i think less two thousand cases and the way they did that is with super collectivist banned together everybody follow the rules and if you do it right then you don't have to do any of these lockdown measures or anything like that. You can get rid of most of that stuff and that in fact was the case in vietnam. They had a couple of sharp lockdowns early. And then in the summer of twenty twenty but then they successfully squelched transmission and Everybody could go back to normal more or less and That was what a basically conservatives through incompetence and their own bizarre definition of what freedom is prevented from being even remotely considered you know in the united states you know. I think that's the thing that you can see. In basically all areas of american policy like it's more freedom. Irt not have medicare for all so that any time you get sick your risk of bankruptcy and you know destitution a sense that like know this rugged individual ideology. I'm the only real person and i don't depend on anyone else. And i'm you know going to live in a a bunker and be you know totally free from to kind of like an post.

"Hi i'm will summer a politics reporter at the daily beast where i dig into all the darkest recesses of american extremism and extremely online militants. I'm currently working on a book about cunanan and his disastrous impact on our society. I'm also a senior political reporter at the beast and co author of the book sinking in the swamp. I've spent years covering the intersection of entertainment and politics and post trump era. That seems like the only sensible way to cover politics in this beautiful hideously. Stupid country of ours on this podcast. We're gonna take you on deeply reported plunges into sometimes hilarious sometimes scary fanatics in fact in the way that millions of americans view the world and how they vote even in the aftermath of the trump administration. The energy of these conspiracy theorists the grit. Thor's and the influencers is still pushing our mainstream political landscape closer and closer to a breaking point. We're here to help you. Better understand how and why this happening and who in the halls of power are leading happened along. The way will regularly bring on guests including political pros hard-nosed reporters and some influential voices from hollywood. Okay we'll we gotta start off its episode by talking about this intrepid female reporter and whistleblower depending on who you ask named ivory hecker apparently built back. Today i'm not entirely convinced. Is her real name if it is. It's one of the greatest names out there. It's like okay. We want like kind of a cool sounding name. But it also has to be a little down home or in texas. It's even better than jonny lee swagger the i think that's the name of the mark wahlberg character in the movie shooter. Each should have been named ivory hecker so much cooler. Okay so tell us a little bit about ivory hecker. I cannot see anything without having a dramatic pause. I and why maga internet is all a buzz about this journalists. Yeah okay so this is a james. O'keefe situation prankster prince himself. Project veritas. he's back. And i gotta say you know james o'keefe i think he's done a lot of bad things and he's not a good guy but i gotta hand it to him here on the showmanship so this yes. Ivory hacker is a reporter at a low local fox station Fox owned as well which becomes relevant in. Houston my hometown and i believe. Yesterday she was doing this segment that was supposed to be basically about how no one can get there a c. repaired because of the shortages. And it's so hot in houston and so a pretty you know kind of banal local news segment and they toss it to her and she's got like a real sweaty repairman binder and then she goes. Yeah i. I'd like to reveal that this station has been censoring me. And i'm to project veritas. And i've been wearing a wire and you know the truth will be revealed okay. We we play this clip. And i will courage our listeners. To actually watch this online because it's it's great it takes place in like an alley or something. Yeah it's an alley and you have this repairman just toiling in the back. Who's presumably not aware at all what's going on. And what later becomes clear is that. There's a project veritas guy right off camera who's going to interview her once once the actual tv segments over. And so this was really really setup thing they've got kind of like a top. James o'keefe lieutenant Rock and i mean she also does it in this like local. Tv news banter. Like patter way where it's like coming up tonight. I've been wearing a wire inside the station. You almost read it as just another local news thing but obviously it's a little crazy than that. I don't understand speech coaches in this form of tv journalism but both in local national news. The teach you particularly if you are a woman to talk as though you're not an actual human being. It's so weird like the cadence. The tried to get you employ even weirder when she employs that cadence. In the service of project veritas. Just completely punking her viewers because and and also our daily beast. Colleague max tani made this point but at some point you gotta respect. Even if begrudgingly that she pivoted immediately from this project veritas pivot and reveal to immediately going back to doing her segment in the alley with this guy who like right. I mean it's pretty. It's pretty crazy. So so actually we've got the full segment and it'll be out by the time episode airs. So here's why the station was censoring her. Basically they would not let her talk constantly about hydroxychloroquine like or last year. You know it's unclear when she was getting this audio. I mean houston is also home to the famous demon sperm doctor of course who was posting hydroxychloroquine and it seems like ivory hecker was somehow kind of like very into what she was pushing and was sort of like. Why won't you let me put this lady on or some other hydroxychloroquine person Shelter really wanted to do a segment about bitcoin. And so i mean you have these like these interviews with the station management who are just like stopped talking about hydroxychloroquine. Some point she she goes. I'm going to james o'keefe with this just as you were talking and just as we were recording. This episode matt gaetz re tweets about ivory hecker. This thing has got legs rick grenell. Who was obviously one of donald. Trump's former intel chiefs during the trump administration Was tweeting about her regularly. This is something that at least for this moment in time has the legs of Republican internet celebrity. Who knows how long she'll be able to juice this. Oh yeah i mean. She'll definitely go to newsmax. First of all she even still at her fox affiliate job right now. Like how long can you hold a job like that after doing going rogue like this on air right. I don't think they let you stay on much after that. I mean but at the end of this project veritas segment goes. James o'keefe like ivory. Hecker is now an independent journalist looking for to work for an honest outlet. So i mean i think has some openings now but really i mean when you sort of boil it down. Like everyone's getting very hyped about what this audio is going to be. But but you know we now know what it is. It's just about fox news right. I mean this is the parent company of fox news and essentially argues that. They're in the pocket of big vaccine. So you know. I think maybe this sort of does boil down to just some local local newsroom drama. Whatever people do this. Like when places. Like project veritas or other writing. Organizations are trying to blow the lid off of the liberalism. Which you know is hilarious. Even posit of places like fox news and they tried to get at it by looking at fox affiliates like in houston or somewhere in oklahoma or whatever. Never make sense to me. Are they just intentionally obtuse to the way how local news actually works. I don't think fox news has that much to do with the houston fox affiliate. I mean i think they're kind of deliberately obtuse about how a lot of things work right like the person who runs the office supplies at the washington post. And then they're like this person's the newsroom manager. You know in that kind of stuff. I mean in this case i gotta say i. I've had a little experience myself I had about With with local Tv news and they are such crazy places and people. there are just so ruthless about going after the audience. It's kind of ridiculous to me that that this is not more damning but there you go i mean you still you gotta to on the spectacle on this one. I mean it's awesome tv. Yes it's fantastic tv. Yes great content. Okay as some of our listeners are probably where there is this new report out of the federal bureau of investigation that has to do with one of our big bugaboos. Cue in on the infamous q. I will our resident cunanan expert in correspondent. Can you please dig into what this means. And why this is different from some of the other. Fbi memos that have come out in recent years or months about the cunanan phenomenon. Right so q. Obviously i'm paying a lot attention to cunanan writing a book for harpercollins evacuate non shameless plug man. But yeah i mean this is interesting because throw a while. Actually it has felt like the fbi for years was sort of ignoring q. And on or not doing a heck of a lot about it. I mean like an internet interstate kyun on kidnapping gag and people were like please. Fbi pay attention to this. I don't know and so now we get. Congress asked the fbi for report on what's going on with the assessment is is not ideal for those of us who are.

"Reckoning in Brooklyn. That's that's up your alley right. That's the pizza connection case. That's that's Kinda from people things you saw growing up in the in the neighborhood there correct in Brooklyn and let him work like. Did you know any of those Sicilians like the South Carolina or Yeah I know all of them To be perfectly honest from my perspective. I wasn't impressed with any of them. Yeah I knew. They were ruthless Knew they had the hands in the heroine Have problems with some of their kids You know it took care of that. Took care of that in the Old New York City Way. You could handle yourself from day. One was I was You're you're blessed with certain physical attributes. I had A. I had a son on my forehead that said not to be fucked with but I guess my it's kind of interesting. I started studying that that they developed his whole crew that we're also saying that handled well. They they weren't they weren't developed. What happened was calm on. Galante was apart from not trusting anyone and having had inroads in Sicily before this because he had originally setup. The French connection to come through Canada. He actually got deported from Canada. And did time in the think the forties So he was well acquainted with the Sicilian. Mafia and particularly the courses can Labs so when he set up the same pipeline. Now coming to the Brooklyn He didn't trust anybody The old mustache Pete's but he trusted the Sicilians because he could manipulate them. They were willing to come work for him so he basically created his army down here and cut the all time gangsters out which is pretty much what his life was on borrowed time. That's why he ended up dead and Joan Mary's on knickebocker revenue But extensively. What happened is somebody was smart enough and I think it might have been sonny black and Delicado Whispered in in the head Sicilian Zia. Was it a Musso was his name. He was the guy that appear to be the head of the bananas after after Golomb. Okay yeah that was South Carolina. Oh okay he kind of lacked yeah. Hey He's he met with talk Castellano right after that right right field and and he didn't last very long as as they quickly came up with somebody else but yeah well ultimately what happened at about the same time was the Joe. Pistone incident. Your the The FBI agent infiltrated them. So Pretty Much. There was a purge and the guy that came out on top after that was Fat Two houses and he's a rat now. You just rolled out. Joe Bassano Masino He he was the first Boston actually came in while he cleaned everything up he was he was an old time Hood he was. I think it was a hijacker He had his hands and prostitution In the prostitution rings He really make any narcotics money so when they had that whole incident that that the Sicilians had to be brought back onto because they weren't behaving and then the pizza connection case broken. They all started flipping. Yeah so the commission basically set the Masino this up with his family doesn't exist anymore and the Sinoe basically went through bananas like aside killed everybody. Yeah that's what he thinks his guy he's guys. I should say but then he turned out to be a rat too. So that's why that's why I'm not. I'm not terribly impressed with this. And Murtagh Bullshit..

It took me three days to get the book on Amazon within a Week. I had doubled my sales. Yeah because now we can advertise on Amazon so shot. The pieces took off for a debut independent novel. It's it's done in his doing very well. Yeah I I can see. I know enough about this. When you get one hundred seventy two or four and a half almost five star ratings that that translates into quiet. A few looks funny. Are the negative reviews. Oh there aren't they learn you discover more about the reviewers anything about the book like these are the prejudices you bring to the table so you know. I mean I come to the point now I laugh at them at first it hurt. Your feelings started looking them. And I'm thinking did he even watch my movie. I remember what they're talking about here or or something else like one of them one lady said well. I didn't even know this was a documentary and paid a dollar ninety nine to rent this. You know that kind of stuff like and gave me one star like come on lady. It says documentary up there. Yeah because it was delivered is labeled but it wasn't my expectation thanks for participating goodbye. They're not having a thin skin or does leave reading those reviews. Now we'll read recently I got bad reviews like one. Bad Review got so far for a reckoning in Brooklyn and then actually illuminated something for me. Evidently a lot of my bad guys are fat. It's just it's just the way it is you know fat. Because based upon real people who happen to have been fat many of them had their nickname was like fat archie. Yeah listen that's his nickname. I didn't give it to him. His Mother did their interspersed without the book throughout the book. And this one reviewer went through it and I trust my writing that obviously I was passionate about it. But I'm not that good of a writer and then she was going on and on and on and then her last sentence exposed everything because a profile. There was no picture in this person who use a lot of books. I'm like okay. What are you hiding Ashley and Her sentence of the viewers and it's clear that the rider hates fat people. Yeah there you go. I don't eat fat people that was. That's a problem when this when you live this life that we did as a policeman. You just call things as they are on the streets. You don't try to make everything literally correct you? Just this is just the way it is you know. I didn't I didn't start this and yeah and listen if the N. word appears in dialogue. It's question appeared in dialogue guided half all the time. It didn't come out on my detectives mouth. Yep I know what you mean for the most part. That's something you want to stay away from that word now. Anyway it's dog yeah really even in fiction. Yeah yeah and it's just from a personal standpoint. When I went to obviously I worked in an integrated neighborhood. We had we had Black Section Latino section we had Mexican Panamanians moving in we had and there were whites still Bush what You know old European so the old Italian some of them were still entrenched down there and you would get a black suspect then and they'd be talking to you and like they'd want to be friends with you and they'd be referring to you as their n words. Yeah and I put my hand. I'm not gonNA use the word I'm not GonNa let you use that word. Strike that word from this conversation. Yeah you WANNA use that word Komi Buddy or if you're trying to insult me call me an asshole like don't use that word there you go and they'd be like I I that's the land mine. Landmine avoided they used to call me the blue eyed devil. Yeah I got that too actually up in Washington heights which resulted making They called me Local gringo crazy blue eyes. Well it's it's quite a life. Let's talk a little bit about Bushwick about this reckoning Brooklyn I told you and folksy if I haven't got this out yet it'll be coming out shortly after this podcast here doing this series on the Pizza connection which was the Bonanno Family. And and they're one of their crews which was made up of all native born citizens who were brought over here primarily by carmine linate to run the heroin trade. They can kind of keep the keep up the fiction that that the mafia you know the organized mafia The commission doesn't approve of dealing in heroin or any kind of narcotics by the family. But but you got this little separate crew of of sayings that we're dealing in millions billions of dollars over the many years of heroin and and in your book a wreck in Brooklyn you indicated that you based on some of those those people that were in the The pizza connection case and it was really interesting case. It was like a billion and a half dollars over the estimated over Ten years or so that they they even knew about and had been going on since before that Helen been going on since nineteen then since the fifties in the United States Well what the win. Galante up his His Sicilian on the bananas They had a brilliant distribution System that they put in place they were using all. The Italian bakeries and pizzerias now and they were able to go. Nationwide through the pizzerias. Because some of the pizzerias would claim to have famous pizza dough that they would ship all over the country The pizza is all up and down the eastern seaboard And that West even out west and you can freeze pizza though so they used to freeze the heroin in the peach ship that out. That's how they went nationwide and he's brilliant if you think about it It was it was. They had three of them in Illinois. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah away I know they went all the way down to the tip of Florida. I don't know if they went that far. What we did there might have. There might have been an issue with The Guy in Cleveland He might have had that territory You definitely had heroin. They're But it just you know. It's there are territories nationwide And evidently they respect that because they don't want to go to war Halfway across the country I guess so that now you came up through Washington heights and and then Brooklyn was primarily in Kansas City and and prepare near as I can tell Chicago. I know the most about those cities is the heroine is primarily African American drug in the fifties and sixties and special in the sixties and seventies before crack came in and was at that way in New York City where they Were they furnishing the his name. Nicky Barnes and Nicky Barnes was a knick was up in up in Harlem And he was Actually he wasn't even the guy if you saw the movie American gangster Frank. Lucas Frank is actually. The mastermind was bringing the The heroin over from South East Asia until he he had a connection to Southeast Asia. The through the military they were actually Is If you can believe the Mo- movie and I've heard this before And actually read true crime version of it. They were bringing the heroine. Back in the caskets of the mutilated Marine soldiers. Which is I don't know if he's blasphemies. Even strong enough word that thing But in any event the heroine In bushwick for the most part was Probably coming from some Corsica when I was growing up as a kid. It's French connection heroin. Basically and that those would of course can labs it. Was the civilians They were getting the The heroin And they were being refined in Corsica and then they had their Their shipping pipeline So Montreal I believe Right right but The thing about it is Joe. Bonanno was He was probably the forerunner John Godley and that he didn't keep a low profile he was out and about. He wanted to be seeing shaking hands kissing babies like he was an elected official. You always called himself. A man of honor but meanwhile he was poisoned his own neighborhood. Palatal pedal and heroin. Yeah and in Bushwick. When the narcotics I started taking off it was a lot of white people coming down from Queens to buy so it was rapidly becoming an epidemic in every community and He's just you see people over time. Come down and they would just look worse every time they came down. Maybe not an outright on the corners and Bush with and if they have a dollar left in their pocket somebody was taking it it was just it was Kinda disgusting. No and I knew all of these guys that were involved in it because I played ball with their sons. You know organized football and baseball and basketball and I was good friends with a couple of them. Yeah but for the most part. Just wait in the girl up to go into the family business. I don't like those guys. You know making make believe tough guys. If there's six of us will fly well it's well it's just me so we're gonNA fight but Yeah I just I don't have any respect for the mafia because I know what hypocrites and liars they are. Yeah so your characters in Brooklyn are based on a lot of the actual people family members and members of the banana family. Sounds like changing names. I'm white slightly chain. Descriptions see part of the reason as people my age. There were handful at a kids from that neighborhood. Data lawyers there chiropractors doctors. They didn't go into the family business. And I'm in contact with some of them so you know I don't need to slander them. It's not necessary. m writing fiction anyway so just change the name so it's unrecognizable to theirs and they have the ability to just not pay attention. It's always a kind of a line. I get called on a little bit on just documenting and and kind of shall we say advertising the Mafia 'cause it's always it's Italian I mean that's just the way it is it's Italian and there's a lot of the majority of the Italian people are good solid citizens who are doctors lawyers bakers and candlestick makers and prominent citizens and all that but there's a certain percentage that that were criminals and and this stone criminals that You know the the victim is their own people as well as anybody. The first people they victimized their own every single Italian business on knickebocker was paying protection. And what was the protection? Give us money or we're going to burn you out. Yeah so I need protection from you. I'm paying you to protect me from you. Talk about a parasitic relationship. Really so and and even your first Italian policemen there Joe. Petro Sinoe was investigating People or victimized in the early shopkeepers. And they killed him they put a contract out on him and killed him over knittle era. Sicily went over there to fight. Yeah and And ultimately it was probably another New York cop gave him up. Yeah and You know they the Sicilian Mafia. They're not afraid to kill cops. Joe Patchy is a is a is. He's at the very top of Pantheon of heroes and the NYPD. Everybody that comes on the job. If they don't know about them already they're gonNA learn about him because he is the pinnacle of integrity. High interesting. Yeah he would have been he would have been. We had one here in Kansas City. Guy Named Joe Ramo Ramo and he he was working. Of course. It was kind of like blacks and they. I became policemen. They could only police in the black neighborhoods citing and Italians could only police in Italian neighborhood and nineteen twelve. I think one thousand nine hundred ten and he learned some information about Some black hand guys that killed this shopkeeper and he was ambushed on his way home Jumped out they added thing they called signboard and there were these sideboards along the street and he walked home at night because he lived in the neighborhood and and They jumped out from behind the signboard with a shotgun and blew emo toy. So let's I'll tell you what it's tough times there. That's what the Mafia came out of those black anders slowly but surely in modern times their sons are are drifting into legitimate business. And out of the business we will you gotta remember at no time was the percentage greater than two percent of the population. Were actually involved in organized. Crime most of them victims of it And Mario Puzo as a writer and a reader. Mario Puzo is literally literally a giant. I mean he wrote beautiful really in sweeping stories. What their bullshit..

"okeefe" Discussed on Gangland Wire

"You are listening to gangland hosted by former Kansas City police intelligence unit detective Jerry Jenkins. Welcome all you are tappers out there. here on the telephone with a new friend of mine and and a Fellow copper from New York City Michaelo. Keefe I was I don't remember what I was doing stumbled across him on some facebook post. I think maybe it was a guy named T. J. English is pretty well known writer Made some mentioned about him or something. I can't remember exactly But anyhow I thought this would be interesting for you guys. Here's a guy who accomplishes like me. And he ended up books now. I've only done documentary films and written one book and and I'd like to talk to him he. He's done fiction books and and based on stories from from his life now. I often thought that I'd like to do that but I don't. I don't know I don't have the creative juices. It'll make the get quite that far. Maybe I'll try one of these days. So welcome Michael. Is Really. It's a pleasure to have you on here. Great to be on. Thank you for having me. So Michael Tell us a little bit about your experience on the NYPD. First of all like I said these guys all know that I was a cop for twenty five years and I primarily worked organized crime. I think he worked a in the homicide unit. Quite a little bit. But mattel the folks a little bit about your career. Yeah I was spent twenty four and a half years in the NYPD. I Only retard because they got hurt disabled Otherwise I'd still be catching in Brooklyn but I started in nineteen eighty six in the heart of the crack wars was assigned to Washington Heights for my first six years and ultimately I don't know if your listeners are familiar with the Washington Heights rights nineteen nine hundred ninety two but I started house Evidently I killed the wrong drug dealer. Who knew he was the patron saint of the cartel and the mayor? David Dinkins and city government Wanted my head on a stick. The police department closed ranks around themselves and through the walls and I had a face Pretty much an entire summer public enemy number one media did a real number on me to worth Google but ultimately I was acquitted in the grand jury New Mayor comes in new police department. the second echelon guys and now elevated to chief positions realized. It was unfair. What they did to me so they said they were going to take care of me but Their idea taking care of me and my idea are being taken care of two different things. They ended up burying me in Queens. Which is a quieter. Section of the city spent three years there becoming a detective. I'm pretty much had to threaten. Take the chief hostage to get out and back to the barrier. I ended up longtime chief of department. Joe Esposito in the NYPD's legend Love Me We were good friends And he arranged a transfer to get me to Brooklyn North Specifically Bushwick where you know largely I grew up and I spent seventeen years investigating murders and shootings. There and I became a first grade. Detective which is actually a very prestigious and Rare rank in the police department. I think out of six thousand detectives at any given time there are maybe a hundred first graders and I was at the Pinnacle on my profession. When my body broke down I had a week. So that's it that's my career in a nutshell interesting. Michael you did. You spent most of your time investigating murders. And that's you're going to be an expert on that for sure and you saw a lot of stuff and you heard a lot of stories now. How and when did you start writing you? I mean you know I've been. I've been a policeman. I know about writing reports and and they don't really like a lot of creative stuff and those police reports you're a creative writer now so Did you develop those skills police report? Actually I did. I did develop some of those skills. I hold them anyway. Riding police reports I started writing in in the seventh grade was introduced to creative writing. I had a pretty innovative teacher. Who is She's now actually the head of the English Department at Saint John's University. But I discovered I liked it poetry and short prose and so I wrote all through high school. Had Things published on student publications? All through college I think it was nominated for Pushcart Prize for one act play but I can't remember what a win at that but I knew that I wanted to write and then I came on the police department and my writing was consigned to basically just police reports very fact driven very dry But as a rookie. Detective one of my first big cases in Queens. I caught a Was a house party. They got robbed. These guys had machine guns. They were not the interest texts. But the real the real deal uses and the MAC eleven's and they turned out to be a bad gag and I caught. That case did a great job got everybody. identified covered. A couple of weapons. Made all the arrests and now the thing doesn't go to trial for a year one of the old time detectives tells me don't document any less you right so less. They can cross. Examine you on washed advice. I ever got because now on trial I have no independent of anything and I get lambasted on the sedan particularly in Cross examination by was smart enough to throw myself on the sword and explain. I got bad advice. I did not document enough and I don't have an independent memory and the jury actually hated the defense attorney and liked me for my candor and they ended up slamming a guy for thirty years so that worked out but from that day forward when I would document my investigations. I would do each we call them. Dd fives investigator form. I would do them As a narrative story basically telling myself a story and they worked the only problem is. I'm using my vocabulary and writing style and I'm invoking things like imagery and metaphor and my first lieutenant throw it through case he goes. What am I going to do this? I don't even know what these words me I'm like you're going to have to get the source because this is what I do now and it worked and ultimately the test of it one of my last cases was It's actually the subject of my next novel. Was An arson triple homicide. The victims were an elderly man. His elderly wife and their son thirty three year old son with down syndrome. They weren't the intended targets but they died in the fire. Tend to target got away but that case was actually three boxes of documents and forms. A lot of science in it Very very difficult case to investigate a lot of paperwork involved but when I went into touch the fly on that homicide had both boxes in on a hand truck. Put them next to me on the stand and for three and a half hours. I testify to that homicide without referring to a single piece of paper because I told myself a story and I knew the story. So yeah that was that was probably as As important writing is I've ever done so then when you said you'd try your hand at selling a book. Shall we say selling one of these documents? You just went back to one of your stories and I know what it was stories or was that no thirteenth stores. Actually Was the second book that I that I came out with and it's actually a collection of previously published stories that had either been published the one prize. They're all derived. No no thirteen stories is not I think there's only one police story that called. Okay no mulligans that's actually based upon my career. Everything else it just kind of made up. My first book was shot to in the way that I got around to writing that after I retired. I kept threatening the write. A book and wife finally got tired of hearing about it so she bought me a laptop gave it means said just write the damn thing and so my first novel was shot to pieces and it is largely autobiographical pretty much. All the police work in that book is stuff like did you develop this. Patty Dura carry. Well Patty Dr. Interestingly enough Was My birth name. I'm adopted so very few people knew that I mean they know it. Now 'cause I tell everyone but Very few people knew that until I wrote the book and you know say which come up with a name like Patty. I'm like I didn't come up with was given to me so as to what what. What was the crime it? We see gang related street assassination. What what was the real story by that Yeah it was actually as it appears in the book. Dominican Drug gangster Is Muscling in on Latin kings drug spots and Bushwick and there's a conflict between them. There's a woman in the middle of it. It's always a woman in the middle of it. E and two friends are coming out of a A diner on Flushing Avenue and and Wilson Avenue. This one the the actual doer is He's an underlying the Latin kings he. He's not a he's not. He's not in the hierarchy of the gang but he's you know he pumps dope and he has the personal beef with with the victim and He ambushes them as on his way back to his car. And even though there were three guys right together puts all six into the into the victim like he really wanted him dead And then he took off took off running and We started near investigation that morning. Actually sleeping at the precinct was Turn around its thing. Goes down at about five. Thirty in the morning and The desk lieutenant comes in wakes me up in the detective storm and says listen crime. Scene can't get here crime-scene over the detectors basically handily overnight events until the the regular detectives came in but they weren't available. They were caught on something in another part of Brooklyn so we wakes me up and I go out to the scene and I started investigating it myself and my partners come in and it's just the book details the investigation but it also details the character arc and the backgrounds of Patty Dr. That'd be perfectly honest. He's damaged very tough life He seems to have triumph but he just keeps sabotaging himself and he's on the verge of getting divorced because of infidelity At the time he catches this murder. And he's gotTa deal with all of these things in this murder that the city doesn't even want anybody to go into. They don't want they don't want anybody know gangbangers it out on the street..
