Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'
"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean

Wokelash Comes Back to Bite Democrats
"The woke lash that we experienced this week. Is being interpreted by different camps in the Democrat party. The Democrat party's not really sure how to proceed. So, on one side, you say we were not, radical enough. That's Elon Omar, AOC. They say they didn't do CRT enough. David plot. We have Stephanie cutter, James carville, who came out and said that we need a woke detox. Well let me tell you, let me just kind of end the suspense for you if you will.

Power goals. They didn't care about the cost. They made an all in bet on the racial arguments that this was going to be as significant as powerful as persuasive and as permanent. As the sudden shift on gay marriage in America. The Democrat consultants, the corporate hacks, they all said okay. The same way that Americans attitudes on gay marriage change dramatically in almost 5 years, that is going to be the case with race. That we are going to be we have to be ahead of this thing and we want to be the party of woke.

But even before that, it was documented. I mean, the average police department is almost dysfunctional. Police department in our state and probably in the country.

They owe to the citizens. Now, this is rich coming from her.

This includes crimes committed by both israel security forces them hamas in afghanistan and includes crimes committed by the afghan national government and the taliban so in both of these cases if domestic points can't or won't pursue justice and me opposed the sec. Where do we think the victims of this oppose it. Crimes can goal for justice so that was an important question to ask because the international criminal court which wants to probe the israeli government for possible war crimes against the palestinian people in gaza that the united states government the biden administration specifically does not support. So she's trying to ask well if you don't agree with the international criminal court investigating this and we can't rely on domestic governments to investigate their own warcrimes.

My guess today was just re elected to her second term in the us house of representatives she is congresswoman ilhan omar of minnesota's fifth congressional district congresswoman. Thanks for coming on the podcast. So great to be here with jonathan so less we talked which was yesterday <hes> on msnbc. I ask you for your reaction to being able to say the words president elect biden and your response to me was really interesting you said and correctly and i would love for you to to expand on this. You said that it would be it. It'll be great for you to not have to explain to your daughter. Y the president. The president of the united states was saying mean things about you. I mean so. I don't know if you remember this. Jonathan but <hes>. The president when he was running for president king to minnesota two days before the two thousand sixteen elections and basically when on attack against somali immigrants somali refugees and for me and the community that i represent for my children. It's been a four year assault on everything that we believe in everything that we stand for down to our basic identity <hes> as american refugees in this country. And so you know. I've had many long days many nights having to explain to my youngest child who is now eight <hes>. My two older ones <hes>. You know sort of absorbed and can conceptualize what what is taking place in the political discourse in this country but for her it's been really challenging or this actually happened. You know. I think for a lot of our kids. They hear about a president in the here about <hes>. Someone they're supposed to look up to see as a leader <hes>. and there there's a lot of respect for the presidency that we try to instill in them and to have someone who has denigrated that as president in herve daily formative years has been really challenging. I mean it's one thing to be <hes>. To have someone attack your community writ large. It's another thing when that someone is the president of the united states and he is directly attacking you by name personally. How has how has that felt on a personal level you know. I have gotten accustomed to standing up to bullies in in my life and so on a personal level. It hasn't really impacted me. Besides having you know my my children <hes>. be exposed to add and <hes>. And you know for for the last two months of this election cycle waking up every single warning to text messages from my siblings. Asking if i was safe because he chose to speak about me at every single rally. Didn't really matter where he was sometimes multiple times in a day as he had held his klan rallies throughout the country. And and you know. And i and i thought a lot about in the last two years that attack on me has met for the people who see themselves in me <hes>. Whether it is you know. Muslims whether it is a black woman whether it is immigrants refugees <hes>. People who are aspiring to be leaderless in in our country many. I want to live in an inclusive society and wants to be part of creating progress for our country <hes>. And it's it's really something to to analyze and to understand and to to reckon with. Because as i as i said you know when i first came to the united states in middle school i remember getting a letter of recognition from then president clinton and i remember you know reading this this ladder and i wrote about it in my book. My father sort of was really proud of this letter at the time. I didn't really care much about you. Know who was president or politics <hes>. That to my father. It was an acceptance of our existence in this country. It was sort of another welcoming letter welcoming ladder when you arrive here as a refugee and you know that that is what a president is supposed to be representative of. They are a leader of the nation. They are supposed to make everybody feel as if they are their president and to have now had four years of a president who has occupied. The white house was not seen himself as the leader of all of the people in this country who is not extended a welcoming hand every single person <hes>. Is you know. Really sad. And sing. And disheartening <hes>. And the day that it was announced that he lost his reelection. I tweet it to my now. Deceased father who passed away because of covert complications are that the president did not relieve in. Acknowledge that you know that we did it and he will no longer be president of the united states and the country that he loved <hes>. Will hopefully come back to being a pekan. Oh hope <hes>. An inclusive country that understands that <hes>. There is strength in our diversity and <hes>. And then there are better days ahead of us

"Okay I'll finish up this article here in February the Somali community leader came forward and confirmed. Ilhan Omar married her own brother to get him papers to keep him in the US. L. Hand Omar came to the US illegally and is now calling to overthrow the current system well. Isn't that just Dandy? You have somebody like that. Somebody in Congress that used our own system, and because there is a large Muslim population in that area Minnesota that she managed to get elected from and set to the House of Representatives in, Washington DC. She thinks she can do whatever the heck she wants. There's there's a again. Her being a part of the squad, each and every member of the squad has an entitlement mentality. Do what I say not what I do. In. Just. Take it. Shut up and take it and that type of environment and and different things like that the they don't want to hear anybody question them. They just want you to shut up and do what they say, not what they do and just go ahead and take whatever crap that they just shout. Don't say a word. Don't try to fight no question. Don't do this or do that and that's not again. That's not the way reality is and Ilhan. Ilhan, Omar is illegal as we all know, and she did marry her brother, which is a violation of the immigration law marrying your own brother. You're not supposed to do that. You know not here. You can do that if you're in a Muslim country or something like that. The laws don't apply, but in the United. States baby, let me tell you you marry your own brother. You marry your own sister and you're related like that brother, sister and sister the brother. Immigration especially. If you're trying to get into this country, immigration is gonNa get you. Immigration's going to slap you with a fine immigration could do a lot of things to. They could even worse case scenario which I doubt and her case because she would Start such as seen.

She's Muslim radical Democrat. This crazy Marxist lawmaker called for capitalism to be destroyed in the name of social justice well. Isn't that special? Okay, and she goes on to say here in the Article via the Gateway Pundit. As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetrate this inequality, so we cannot stop at the criminal justice system Il il Han Omar said we must begin to work in dismantling the whole entire system of oppression. Wherever, we find it. then she goes on to say. According to documents and sources previously reported by Investigative Journalists David Steinberg Congressman Omar married her own brother in order to defraud the US immigration, service and factors evidence mounting that Ilhan. Omar isn't even her real name, so she has problems. Folks, it's it's obvious democrat. Elected to the House of Representatives of course, Democrat Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has all kinds of problems and issues. She has a lot of baggage and she likes to point the finger at everyone else in Congress likes to go on a tirade like Ao see alexandrio Casio Cortes Ilhan. Omar is just on the opposite side there in Minnesota and she likes to go to the house when she's in the House chambers and always start on the war path anytime. She's asked a question. Or, she asked a question or somebody asked her a question anytime. She can get to do grandstanding. She does, and that's what she's good at. She has a big mouth, but a very useless useless congresswoman. That has a big mouth. She's doing nothing for the good people of Minnesota. And in my humble personal opinion, she's embarrassing the Muslim establishment by run her mouth, not knowing what she's talking about incompetent and incapable, and hopefully they'll get her out of office. Vote her out of office this November along with Ao. See and the rest of the members of the squad, but let's continue the article here in finish up real quick. L. Han Omar refuses to answer questions about her fraudulent marriage to a brother, and accuses anyone asking her bigotry and Islam Phobia. That's a typical democratic move by the way. your your big at your homosexual. Your your Islamic of Islamaphobia. On and on and on the name calling starts. We can't have a debate about anything worthwhile without. Somebody on the other side of the aisle. The left side of the aisle always complain complaining. You're a big at your homophobe. You're this. You're that you're Islam Phobia. On and on and on. This is how this is part of the problem. They don't want to communicate. They want to be heard, but never be questioned as to their intentions, and so that's where the problem lies. They think that it's like do what I say.

"That and you work in a collaborative office. Are you having to deal with the idea that they come to Omar Gandhi because they want Omar Gandhi. They don't want you know the next man up. So Do you feel that what two offices is and the staff that you have and the number project you have that you have to be present at certain times because people expect you to be president. Because that's why they came to your your firm because they want you. Yeah I think that that potential certainly exists but I think that it becomes quite clear right off the bat that you know even from the first meeting really when I'm sitting with one of our team members that are with me. It's not really that place so you know they might come in thinking that that's the case but I think in the end they're really happy with working with more than just me so I think it's about managing the expectations as early as possible. Missile with respect to that but in the end I think they definitely get a better product by working with more than just me. That's for sure because you know there's things that I'm strong at and they're definitely things that other people in the officer much better at so I think in the end they get a product of the office. I got a kick out of the fact that you've recently changed your website and and where I work. Now we're in the process of changing the website which some reason recent everywhere I go. That seems to be the harbinger of changing the website. I haven't comments about. Hey websites are changing. You know architects use design websites. Lights that same like they were for the ego of other architects. They weren't very friendly to us. And there were overly complicated and tricked out hover of your mouse line. Shootout does weird stuff and yeah yours was very clean and simple and I liked it but one of the things. You're so you have a new one now. You had a landing in page on there for a while and you've got your new one up and running you've got rid of the staff photos and not only. Did we get rid of that. We got rid of most things on a website like really announced. Just sort of like these are the progress it's photos and that was a conscious effort. I'd say the one thing about websites is does anybody even looking at websites. We spent a lot of time. Rethinking our website knowing that. I don't know if anyone actually looks at them. Because you know things like instagram are are way more prevalent than actually clicking on a site and trying to navigate through to find that information so in the same way that we don't have staff photos including being my own photo. We don't have our awards publications and all that kind of stuff that again. It's just nonsense that no one cares about. I know for a fact that when people go to our website it it's because they're looking for a project or looking at the work and if they like it they're going to click a button that connects them with us. Basically just taken taken out all that other stuff. That just is kind of filler. And I hear what you're saying. I just don't think anyone is going to hire us based on that I wonder So hijack this conversation to completely so I tend to think that architecture is a personality driven business for better for worse especially when when I was doing residential work because if somebody was looking to have a house built there's already a certain amount of ego that's involved because let's face it. There are a lot of houses that are out there that are already built and so for someone to come to an architect and say there's nothing out there that suits my needs. I need something that reflects who I am. As a person they already have very strong opinions since about their place in the world. And that's not that's not from judgment that's just you know it's it's they can appreciate the nuances of what we might bring to a product so that means it's no longer about I want five bedrooms. Five bathrooms a living room and a place to put a pool table. And I don't want it to leak and I WANNA have a nice window so it's not about those things anymore. It's about the process. It's about that final product. And it's about the journey from A to B when they decide they're interviewing Omar Gandhi and some some apple picker somewhere else. Why would they choose one person over another and I think it's because they like you better her they're going to choose you because of who you are as a person? Yeah I do think particularly were were residential. Work is concerned that these folks do their research and I know that just because of the amount of work that kind of got brought in from my website because people know you seem like like a nice person I think that the way you think aligns with how I think and there was a connection that was made in take with a grain of salt. There's no finish work on my website. Right that's the whole point of it minds all about process. And how do you get from A to B not. Here's the destination and so and I talk about making mistakes and this didn't didn't work out right and now I've got I've got this in my bag and I won't make that mistake again. I think that website serve a purpose to help convey who we are as people. I agree with you. I don't think that people look at it to read square footage and what type of rooms are in. But how long did it take to build. And who was the bill. They don't care about that stuff. I want to project themselves into the process and go. Do I like the product and do I like the person. So that's what it's about for me. It's about people and it's about what people can project it themselves into. That's why I will say I did enjoy the fact that you had people on your website. It wasn't just work. It was these are the the people that do these projects that you see yet. No that's fair for sure and I think that you know. A lot of that is reflected in the spirit of our instagram for sure. So you know I would say that in terms of communication. That's our number one tool the other thing about you. Know when you Google our firm for more me or whatever. There's over the course of ten years there. I was fortunate enough to have some nice articles. Written people are GonNa find out about the practice and maybe some more of the personal things through that. I don't have a place on our website anymore where I say that we won the Governor General's award order any of that stuff just because that's you know I'm really proud of the work and I don't really want to emphasize that other stuff very much and so I would say if you WANNA see construction photos and the process and snapshots of us in the office. You know you see all that on instagram. Where things kind of change very quickly loosely? But for a certain demographic and most people are looking at things on their phone not on a computer pewter you need to make it as easy as possible for people to navigate through projects so imagine you were sixty five years old. You're retired right now. You're building your recreational home in the mountains somewhere you're using your phone because that's how people google things now you don't see all that stuff on on your phone and I don't think people really pay enough attention to the way in which information is both delivered received and so that was really sort of that product. What's really imagining sort of a demographic who we do a lot work for and making it easy as possible for them to figure out how we did that stare in that house there are? I will say this and since you're who you are think this works for you because you've achieved some notoriety early and you're like you don't need to say okay that you won the Governor General's medal in architecture because there's fifty other people that are saying it on your behalf other places not everybody has that. It's a very a clever way of you to hey. I don't need to toot my own horn because all these other people are doing it. We can be more focused and distilled into the things that we want to convey ED matter to us which is the product and I like that. There's a peters zoom door quote that you might appreciate them because you know he's famously slow. Oh in doing the projects that he does and he has a a lengthy kind of portion. That leads up to this but when he talks about I do it for the work and it's important to get the work right and it takes a long time because that's how long it takes. He says the finished product is your best argument. I think that aligns with what you're saying and that you do it for the work and for the end product not for the ACCOLADE. That's a Nice Cherry on top. But that's not. What motivates you? Yeah an Indian Dan Product. I think like the process of doing it and like sitting together and you know we laugh a lot of my studio. I don't know why but I think maybe it's it's just a group of people that enjoy each other's company and we have a law firm you know really. That's what makes me happy like that is the best part of the job is kind line of you know working together and you know like I said being on site until working through problems. That's the gold right there. That's the best part of this. I agree well On that conversation. Final point I think it's time for us to get to the hypothetical question which is really the only reason y the first part of this podcast exists. It's all leading up to this moment with you Omar and you're familiar with how this works sort of case so just to lay the initial rules that I will change after you and Andrew gave our answer and I'm wrong. That's part of the rules. My answer is always wrong. Ah Yes Andrews always wrong and you'll come up with your answer and I'll tell you can't answer that and I'll introduce a new rule. That's just the way this works. So here's the question sure. Would you rather only age from the neck up or from the neck down right. Yes our our guests so you can either go first or you can make Andrew go I will. Can I follow up with a question of gorgeous. Most definitely always. Are we talking about physically on the exterior like aging or talking about like the way in which things. WHOA that all of the above? Well I gotTa tell you. I played baseball pretty seriously seriously for most of my views and it was a pretty sad day a few years ago when I was playing with my son and I just turned forty this year like just a couple of months ago and you know I played shortstop and you wouldn't have thought twice about diving for the ball or sliding into the base like the thought of doing that. Now like the ball is there. It is three feet in front of you. It's just a lunge away away like it's just a lunch you know. You're the thought of even doing that right now. Just is so far beyond comprehension. That makes me really. We saw that really bums me out so let me give you this because I know that that might influence your answers. Let me give you another one so when you get to be my age aged. I'm about ten.

We're rolling out for the twenty twenty season of episodes titled Talking Shop With Fill in the blank or insert guest guest aim here. We're going to be doing one of these sorts of episodes throughout the year and we decided to come out of the gate strong with our first guest Canadian architect and emerging invoice in the architectural community. My friend Omar Gandhi. Hey Armar thanks for joining us. Today is going great. Good good I can tell. Oh you that. I'm going to be listening for the Canadian accent. That's what people are going to notice. What's right we'll have to wait for it? Oh I can already hear some of it. I'm I'M GONNA figure out how to make you say about as much as possible but now you've warned him. It's true probably so with all the Benelux that I have in my system right now. There's no the way that well we appreciate you joining us today. And I have this whole intro. Let me read that so that we can set the table a little bit for the people people who listening to understand that. You're not just some guy on instagram. You've actually got a lot of really nice accolades here. Let me read this intro paragraph real. Oh quick after studying in the regional arts program at Mayfield secondary school and then the inaugural architectural studies program at the University of Toronto. Omar Move to Halifax six Nova Scotia where he received his master's degree in two thousand five at Al-Hussein University after graduation Omar worked for WHO Bara Pain McKenna Bloomberg architects young and Wright architects and finally McKay Lion Sweet Apple architect upon his return to Halifax Gandhi started his own design firm in two thousand and ten and became a registered architectural practice in two thousand twelve. Omar is the recipient of the two thousand fourteen Canada Council for the arts professional pre to Rome Rome and was listed in wallpaper. Magazine's two thousand fourteen architects directory. Their list of the top twenty young architects in the World Omar or was named one of the Architectural League of New York's emerging voices two thousand. Sixteen one a monocle. Magazine's twenty most influential Canadians and was named one of architectural contextual record magazine's design vanguard for two thousand eighteen most recently the studio was the recipient of the two thousand eighteen governors general metal Canada's highest highest honor for built projects in architecture for the Cabinet Rabbit Snare Gorge Omar was appointed as the Louis icon visiting assistant professor in Architectural Design Zayn at the Yale School of architecture for the fall semester of the two thousand eighteen nineteen academic year. Wow that's a lot. Did you see any of that coming. It's not really that I didn't see it coming. Thought coming it was more just. It started happening quite quickly. I was sort of working at a rate and things were happening ending so quickly that it just sorta started pilot line. I gotta say it's Pretty Weird and it's also weird thing to say because it's only been ten years since I've had my practice. It's almost thirteen year anniversary. And it really yarded in a weird way so it's kind of just been absolute insanity for almost ten years and I WANNA just starting to pick my head up a little bit hearing these things you know when I first read this list of accolades such you had. I made the connection. Because it's something that at Andrew on occasion will make fun of me of is that would he graduated with your masters in two thousand and five you ended up working for three different offices is before you open your own firm seven years later. These were quick. Stop overs in these other firms. Yeah absolutely do you know the first one was young and right and you know I got some really great experience there. I was there for maybe two of those years and then moved to affirm affirm- Guevara McKenna Bloomberg which now call Kpmg Architects in Toronto which is arguably the most respected for its scale in Canada. And so that was something that it was like a move. That was a huge jump up to be around so many talented people and work on incredible projects. You know that was for about a year and a half or so and then I moved from Toronto to Halifax at that time it was because of a family decision between my wife and I to move to Halifax for her job but it was where I went to school so I was familiar with the place. So that's how the third job happened but yeah it. All all sorts happened pretty quickly but I sort of went from you know. Gigantic commercial firm to a really respected design firm of a large scale to an extremely extremely well respected small-scale firm but did smaller projects so it was sort of like you know maybe in the back of my mind I was being strategic Jacob. Oh what those firms looked like but again it happened really quickly so you know and and the other thing was all that sort of happened right out of the thesis and you know you're kind of exhausted Austin after that as well so from the beginning of school to the end of school through work experience and then this the last ten years. It's just been Vinh exhausting. Honestly you know one of the things I really wanted to voice I want to have you know being on this show because it's you know something. I really respect about the things that you guys talk about is it's it's very honest and in our profession. I think there's so much Pravada. Oh all the time that I think it's sort of a perfect time for me specifically where at least is that just feel like it's a great time to just trying to loosen your shoulder a little bit. You know like let your guard down. I think that's a nice way to put it and I appreciate appreciate the acknowledgement but my question is where in the world. Are you right now. I am in Halifax Nova Scotia. Which is on the East Coast coast of Canada? It is freezing cold outside. Although it's probably a lot colder in other parts of Canada it's on the coast gets pretty windy and chilly out here here. It's pretty dark outside. It's two hours ahead of you guys. I think right now so it's a little bit later. It's a great city to live in a great place to work without me actually doing doing the research on it and then coming back later adding it as if I already news. What's the population and Halifax think the population here in the entire cities? Around four hundred thousand and Halifax is really one of the commercial center of the East Coast of Canada so there are other cities scattered scattered around in New Brunswick Nova Scotia. But it's really the business center. I know you have offices in both Halifax and in Toronto. How much time do you spend in each location? Nation is a kind of a fifty fifty or who knows. It's wherever you need to be over the last. Let's say four years I went back and forth. Maybe every five or six days between the two offices in both offices are quite small outlived out here on the east coast in Halifax for the last twelve years so when I went to school here but my family and you know most of the friends I grew up with our in Toronto. So it's a funny thing going back and forth but it's really been in quite fun in the last couple years though I guess in the last couple of months of really sort of tone it down a little bit because we project sort of all over the place now so the going solely Toronto been spreading around and really trying to make Halifax a bit more of a hall. So let me ask you this when you started your firm. Was it something that you had been working towards and decided that moment had arrived or was it something you just found yourself it and it just kind of happened. It was absolutely not something I planned. I got laid off And so I found myself in the city that I wasn't from and not really knowing many people it was sort of like announced do tech situation and there ended up it just sort of being. You know I'd say maybe a year probably a bit less than a year of just doing kind of odds and ends Dax of little Renault projects and certainly nothing magazine. But you know worked for some very nice people and you know I. It was sort of like the ball started rolling and all of a sudden I had little projects to support myself that I needed. And then you know one thing sort of led to another and it was just a massive. What a snowball effect lousy Canadian snowball? I don't know if you guys say that. And we say it I mean even though we don't hardly ever see him here in Texas. Yeah Yeah we we say snowball. When do you get snow? Maybe once or twice every winter. If we're lucky reluctant at which I know Uh lucky is not a word typically used from people who deal with Snow Day in and day out is just. It's like seeing a unicorn so it wasn't something laid planned but what I did decide. was that everything I was going to do. I was going to do the best job I possibly. Could you know one of my former employers. Remember him always saying that. One of the faults with architects is there waiting for the project. But there's really an opportunity and everything and whether or not it gets into magazine or accept awards. These things have effect on the next thing. You know whether it's just taking up a little bit of confidence along the way or building building a relationship with people and so one of the first ones was a product of that I worked on and this was all really animal attic at that point just sort of pretty small space and the staff of reference books because you know in our profession no one really teaches you how to do any of this at school and even in school you know that sort of advice prices not necessarily applicable. So you're kind of figuring out how to run a business all that sort of stuff all at the same time and amazing amazing relationships with builders in clients that ended up leading to the next one and then not let right to the next one at all happened very quick. You know. That's one of the questions that people who listen to this interview might be thinking it's GonNa ask it. They always want to know. How do people find work so when we talk to folks like you that have started humbly and small mall and you just started getting work in and I know the answer? Khanna's well you know you do as good a job as possible on this one in. That's what helps you get the next one. But you've mentioned about building relationships with contractors builders so how did that actually work. How did you actually.

so screwed all right Eric hello Eric yeah yeah I have a question of yeah I have a question about an accident but I got it you where I was on the ball five I thought we were engaged and insurance company better I'm thinking about how long you that they're only going to pay me a small portion of the damages because back form scratches on the bumper fire yeah okay I guess my question is where I was in a small clearing where you turn it into your own insurance company for underinsured motorist and let them deal with it so you've got a couple of choices the first thing I would do is turn it into your own insurance company and say Hey guys they're not offering me money as far as I'm concerned this is under insurance you go after them now if it turns out that they are not going to go after them then what you do is you take a small claims court for the damage his defense is going to be that there was already pre existing damage and now it's just going to be up in the air I and I I'm assuming there pictures that have been taken I I I guess you have to have some proof your all right so yeah take a small claims court how much gonna cost you to repair the day the the bumper it bye bye bye okay well there's your lawsuit five hundred dollar hearing turn that in your insurance company for five hundred dollars how do you get a bumper repair for five hundred dollars every time I get anything repaired all my cards thousands of dollars drives me completely nuts Eric hello Eric Eric in their hand along along there you go I'm sorry Eric what can I do for you there is more of a stature of five limitations question for you I was hired by the city of San Diego water department several years back up on being hired to do the background check kidney function tests a few years already in working for them I injured my knee and went into their doctor they advise you to see my personal doctor because of my my blood pressure our problem which I was unbeknownst to me I have anyways I went in and they said well you're in renal failure your kidneys are starting down so my question is I did speak with what price are they notify the city San Diego okay respond with a letter saying we never hired Mister Smith argued with kidney function test it all year and I already been employed with them for like six years so I don't know if I was scared wrong or not but the attorney told you well it comes down to causation so there's nothing you can do about it well Hey let me ask you this why did they they hired you and then you left voluntarily correct well I never even more after what happened was is what I found out it kidney failure they set me up with all I see is a sport bike go ahead no guys so I I don't quite understand so you're working for them and die they eat yeah I'd say you weren't working for them it is is it the am I missing something here you know they said I was I was never hired to work for the city of San Diego because I stayed up there to me from the and that never happens or just yeah I get it but what also work with them already election okay so let me so let me ask you what you gonna sue them for well that's just what I did not like it soon for like a unical costs are what is called what do they have to do with your kidney failure well that's that's what I was wondering if they get a kidney punch intact but I didn't know if that has something to do with how you actually now it's now it's doing now it's not them you're talking about yeah the doctor who did the test there is the liability if the doctor molested that test and you now or in renal failure and had that doctor done a task and not have told you misdiagnosed you and you've gotten substantially worse for you we are able to preclude it very is your liability not the city all right so you know you're I didn't I had to have a kidney transplant okay well it's that's no small deal so you want to talk to a medical malpractice attorney that's where you want to go and on site there may be a that you're right there may be a statute issue with the damages are so big hi that boy you talk no matter what and died so go to handle on the law dot com we have plenty of medical mallet journeys to see where you stand all right yeah you know you sort of miss the liability there why with the city I get it doesn't matter if it's a you weren't working you were working all right another big breach this one is Facebook two hundred and sixty seven million users have had their names Facebook ID's phone numbers exposed in an online database that's what we're hearing and Facebook says Lisa database is no longer available so with all that information are you can get targeted for spam messaging phishing emails identity theft or other nefarious purposes I did a theft that's the one that I'm most scared about and if you think monitoring your credit is going to help with identity theft it'll help but it's certainly going to miss a lot of those threats which is why I'm suggesting a life walk it detects a wide range of identity.

"All right these are these are questions that I have for you on Omar. and I cannot think my staff and I we have beat our heads against the wall trying to give her the benefit of the doubt in every way that we possibly can but the evidence is overwhelming we don't know why others will not do an investigation on this we can speculate. but we don't know why. perhaps it's because unless she gives the answer or unless there is enough support from the American people there's no where to go. if her Attorney General in in Minnesota who is Keith Ellison. if he won't do anything about it who will. if people in Congress are too afraid to take a run because of care and all of her connections who will. we are going to continue to ask the question until there is an answer. now this was just released by Caleb hole he tweeted this out yesterday last night at eleven OO eight. eleven to eight PM. he said a lot Mars father's name is nor Omar Mohammed. okay that's how she gets the Mar name that's her father. allegedly. but her her alleged brother's name is Ahmed nor Saeed al me remember say eat is the name Omar it's not the last one it's it's all jumbled so remember save Saeed is the brother's name his last name if you will she says she's unless Rutherglen the asset yes she says she is and Omar and saw her father would have to be newer Omar Mohammed who came in from Somalia and had his whole family there and the line was one of them. now. this tweet from two thousand thirteen on her official account appears to be pretty damning evidence that she married her brother Saeed. this tweet which was then deleted in the middle of the night by a lot Mar. was a copy of something she had deleted earlier on Instagram but she didn't go to Twitter to delete the connection yeah and if you're not on these things basically if you're you could set up Instagram to automatically tweet the same thing that you just posted it on Instagram set up to do it twice so you post on Instagram once it automatically sends a link to Twitter and the beginning of your post that gets cut off a little bit so we can't tell the entire message that she wrote we can see enough to actually see the comment about the father and we do know at eleven await this was on line on her Twitter feed okay so we know this was posted by her on her Twitter feed and we now know that it is strangely been deleted what she wrote was happy father's day to my a blue newer site evening I am forever grateful to Allah for giving me the best father a dot dot dot we don't know what the rest of that message was but this seems to verify that her father is not Omar but sigh eat it which would make Saeed al me her brother. you can clear this up. now if your ex husband is not your brother. why did he live with a woman in England that you have referenced as your sister in London. why does she consider your father the one that you just said happy father's day. as her father. why are there photos of you the two of you together. in twenty sixteen you filed a harassment report on a DC cab driver where you called Layla your sister why did also another witness coal cooperate that leader. again easy questions the American people should know you just need to tell us the truth you just have to do what you've refused to do and that is address them. you also have claimed that you're not having an affair with Tim my net so why does his wife claim otherwise an official court documents and by the way I don't really care about your sexual life I don't care about I don't want to know about it. the fraud with your brother seems concerning now your an affair with him my net just admit that you're having an affair with him he left his wife for you you been seen together photographed together it's a protector but it's not really about him.

If you enjoy it. No there is zero evidence of that. She tweeted the boys were taunting five black men before they surrounded Phillips and lead racist chants. No, there's no evidence of that whatsoever. And then she tweeted the San man's. That's the kids family hired a right wing PR for to write his non apology. What was he to apologize for? He didn't do anything wrong. He did nothing wrong. Pure unadulterated liable. It's not just on the left you go over to the resurgent, Eric I can't remember his name.

And there are now one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen paragraphs of corrections to the original story. Fourteen corrections to the original story. Do you think anybody's learned anything from this? I doubt it. By the way, Phillips, the Indian did not serve in Vietnam. Nor is there any reason to believe that the young victims of his bantering are bigots. Which leads me to the weekly standard founder Bill Kristol. Former weekly standard founder. If I were the Bishop of the diocese of Covington. I would humbly ask Mr. Phillips to be the commencement speaker at a certain high school. They just won't let it go. This is all you need to know, even in the face of facts, even in multiple paragraphs of corrections. They won't let it go nurse..
