The Left's Lawless Immigration Policies
"So I want to talk about three small wins and I also want to talk about a very telling admission by Mallorca himself. So here's the first win and that is that the big uproar about all those Haitians who were descending on American shores. Obviously, these are not people at the southern border. They're showing up from Haiti. And they're showing up because the estes poverty in Haiti, but there's poverty in many parts of the world. Our immigration policies are not based upon your poor, therefore you have a right to come to America. So here were the Haitians and they were basically being seen on mosque coming across the southern border huge public relations scandal horrific images for Americans. Who are these people and even though the Biden administration tried to turn the tables? Look at these Texas Rangers rounding them up on horseback cowboy style. Nevertheless, the Biden people realized this is a very serious problem, and so they began to then deport the Haitians. Expelling thousands of them in sending them back home where they, of course, belonged. Victory number one. Here's victory number two the Biden administration as I mentioned on this podcast a couple of times was getting ready was on the verge of making gigantic financial settlements to families that said, oh, we were families who were separated at the border, even if the separations were brief, even if they were temporary. Oh, they were so traumatic. Why not use to this at all? This is emotional hardship and pain. We need to be paid $450,000 each. Not even for family. Per person. And the biodiversity was like, oh, yeah, you know, this song's reasonable. Yeah, yeah, I think giving family is taking taxpayer money and giving America Mexican families a $1 million here a $1 million there so they can basically go hit the Mexican casinos. They thought this was kind of a fair settlement. Well, once again, the public outrage over this. Made it impossible politically for them to go forward with this. And so they have ended those court negotiations over these financial compensation, victory number two. Victory number three is a court victory coming out of Texas and Texas. I have to say, has been the center of the resistance to Biden's immigration policies just a flurry of lawsuits filed by taxes really by attorney general, Ken Paxton, who's been on the show, and this is forced Biden to reimpose, even though not fully Trump's remain in Mexico policy. It's even forced Biden to continue some border wall construction, which is to say to close some gaps in the wall not to build new sections of the wall which they flatly refuse to do, but at least to patch up the wall in places where they were sort of gaping holes. Now, let me turn to the statement by orcas. We have fundamentally changed immigration enforcement in the interior for the first time ever our policy explicitly states that a non citizens unlawful presence in the United States will not by itself be a basis for the initiation of an enforcement action. Now this I think is really significant, you've got a top Biden official basically saying, it is our stated policy that we will not enforce the law. If you've got a guy in the United States illegal, you know, he's illegal. He admits he's illegal. But he doesn't have other violations. He's not a gang member. He doesn't have a criminal record. He's just an illegal. Not by itself, is not sufficient to initiate return or deportation proceedings. So what we have here is a truly lawless administration in the clinical sense of the term, there is a law system says if you don't like a law try to change it, they can change the law they're using the technique of quote enforcement to say, we're going to enforce it here, but not over there in effect what they're saying is we're going to at least in these important respects,

Texas Passes Law Stating No Permit Necessary to Open Carry a Gun
"Attorney general talk about the new second amendment bill. That was just passed. That has everyone freaking out of what's happening in texas. Well it's a long time coming. I've been in favor of this forever. You don't have to have a permit to for free speech. You don't have a permit to go exercise your faith. I don't think you should have to have a permit to carry under the second amendment so in texas we now have that we have constitutional carey which allows people to carry concealed or out in the open without going through the government to get permission. Well that's terrific and so are there any. Are there any possible legal challenges to this. I'm sure some groups are going to try. Robert francis o'rourke who calls himself beta was making all sorts of videos about this and saying it's the worst thing ever. But i don't think that's gonna hold up in court. No i mean i have. No doubt will get sued. We'll end up defending that law and will you know that's one of those cases that could could all the way the supreme court who knows either way i think we're on si- obviously solid legal footing with the constitution. It's kind of the basic of our of our of our country. So i feel i'm encouraged. It took a long time to get this through era. I was enlisted for twelve years. We were never able to get it through and finally this session happens. I'm really grateful. So let's talk more. Broadly now just about texas is texas at risk of going. Blue harris county seems to be a blue county now vallis counties whatever it is. What are you seeing on the ground. And how can people help. Were absolutely a risk of going blew. It would have happened this time. Had we not fought these lawsuits. I it's all about whether we can protect the integrity of our elections and that is a constant battle. And that's why this election bill was was passed. And we've got to be vigilant. I think there's another bill. They're considering on on on looking at. Its potential type. Audits like you guys are doing here. I think we've got to do that to make sure that our elections are fair and that people can trust them because once you lose if we lose control in texas. I'm not sure that we'd ever get it back because if they open up mail in ballot let elections. We're gonna end up a lot more fraud and we may never be able to take it back and so it's pretty important that we secure elections now. Because you know you go to california. There's a lot of valen ballots. And i don't know if we'll ever know if there's a fair election california oregon or washington right.
Google Is Its Own Government, Cuts Texas Attorney General's Budget
"Attorney general paxton. How many people do you have working for you. And the attorney general's office in texas so it's a total of about forty two hundred four thousand two hundred and you're saying that google has a lot of resources understand. How big these companies are. You have the understand the point. I'm making i mean you're the third largest state right or the second we're second we're actually selling. The census data second largest state in the country attorney. General's office is saying. Hey look we're going to try our best but like we're no google. Yes to show the size right amazing the money that they have a we have budgets and my entire budget for a two year period one point three billion which sounds like a lot of money six hundred and something million but a year which is a lot of money and we do a lot of great things with that money however if you think about google making you know hundred and thirty five billion a year and profits they could hire every attorney in texas they wanted to and every lobbyist in texas and i. We have to go up against that. There's no limit to what they can do. The experts they can i r- and and and what they can do to try to. You know go into a legislative session. Like i just went through where they try to lobby tab. My budget cut by twenty five percent. So really it's a force. They are a force. That's just one company that makes sense. Yes so google being its own government. Basically within our own country never should have been allowed to be this big or powerful comes in and says oh we don't like the attorney general's office in texas because their lawsuit is so brilliantly written. Let's go cut their budget. Because we have offices in austin and somehow we can justify and that's what they're willing to do absolutely. I think it's pretty smart. I mean if they get my budget by twenty five percent which was the strategy That makes it very difficult for me to carry. I actually asked also for money for the google case. I asked for forty three million dollars. Go fight go well they obviously. We're trying to fight that as well that imagine. I don't get the money to to fight him. But also lose the rest of my you know a high percentage of my budget and have to lay off a bunch of lawyers instead of ramping up to go fight them. That's nearly what happened.
Texas Legislature Expanding Voting Laws to Protect Election Integrity, Prevent Fraud
"Want to get too many other topics here But let's get into election integrity. You see the side. They're not just upset about the texas pro-life law from they're also upset about the law that they say it's the hardest state in the country to vote in and tell us what's really going on in the fight for election integrity in the great attacks so we almost ended up in the same situation is georgia and arizona and some of these other states where we would be counting votes What we did differently in texas as we defended twelve lawsuits that were aimed in pretty liberal counties. Travis which is austin houston which is a bare kennywood san antonio and in those counties. We were sued over our laws related to mail in ballots and signature verification. We were fortunate. We had twelve of those. It was a major onslaught. We won every single one of those lawsuits so instead of counting votes on election day we had already protected our elections. Now what we're doing is we're actually expanding voting hours. And we're limiting some of the little tricks that were that were attempted in harris county and some other places to go beyond the legislature authorized as far as it relates voting. And so we've tried to tighten up male unbalanced by requiring photo. Id which i think is very significant because my office prosecutes Voter fraud. it's the only thing we prosecute. We have more voter fraud cases going now than we ever have. We have were five hundred cases in court another almost four hundred cases that were investigating and more than a majority of those relate to mail in ballot fraud so with legislature was trying to do was expand hours. Give more opportunity to vote. We already have two weeks early voting in texas so it's pretty significant but at the same time we realized we still have some voter fraud issues especially as it relates to mail in ballots. So i want to zero in on the said. There's five hundred cases that you've brought to to indictment. Is that right around for the we have. We have five hundred over five counts. That were prosecuting right now. We we have not brought him into indictment because covert actually shut the course down in texas for quite a while. We're and we're now we're wait. We're waiting line behind violent offenders to get those cases in but we have more cases going right now related to voter fraud than i think we've had in the entire history of texas if you add up the number that we're investigating plus the number that we're prosecuting. I think it's a larger number. All the cases ever prosecuted in
Texas' Ban on School Mask Mandates Temporarily Denied by Court
"The taxes Supreme Court is temporarily allowing school districts to implement mask mandates. Correspondent Tanya J. Powers has more the Texas Supreme Court's ruling leaves in place. A temporary restraining order from Travis County Judge Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Governor Greg Abbott had wanted the state Supreme Court to overrule that judge. Here's what all that means. Some school districts in Texas have been putting their own mask mandates in place in opposition to Governor Greg Abbott's ban on them. The court has now cleared the way for those districts to enact their own mask rules. Meanwhile, although Covid 19 vaccinations have increased in recent weeks, the delta variant continues to spread rapidly among the unvaccinated, including Children. According to the Texas Tribune. The two main groups that remain unvaccinated across Texas are white conservatives in rural areas, along with Hispanics and blacks in big cities. Among the unvaccinated are five million Children, many of them who are not eligible for the vaccine.

It's long she can call it. They disappeared for that entire special session day. The democrat house about fifty members of the house took off for washington. D some took off for europe a few. I think i heard were in the bahamas. But either way they ended up. Having the whole first special session wasted other members of legislative. Those who wanted to did they go. As regular americans would they fight commercial. They wear masks as the as democrats. Try to force americans to do or did they do a little something different. No private planes. I think at least a case of miller lite. I saw the plane. He did not wear masks. You know. I don't certainly up to them.

"And his boss is really funny. Well maybe he'll become a big time judge here before possible six twenty three well if you watched hard knocks feature of the dallas cowboys episode one aired on tuesday night. I didn't get around to see it until yesterday thoroughly enjoyed it all i have. I had no idea that that dak prescott was such a potty mouth while they all are i know they all are but it just. It's weird because they don't talk like that in club because that's a great thing about the show you get to see these guys you could say. Zeke elliott not know how to wrap a present. That was hilarious youtube. You wrap birthday present. You know i heard i would go ahead and credit this guy in this station except i don't remember which one it was that could bounce around listening to all the radio stations. One one guy checked into what that that bag that Zeke gave dacca's birthday. Oh the suitcase. Yeah seven thousand dollars. Surprise me thing. Look nice yeah. All right so Jerry jones was was on their course and one of the scenes from there. That's getting a lot of reaction from people is when he was shown sitting in his office eating a mcdonald's grill now. The first thing that i noticed was that it was on a nice piece of china. Yeah and he had napkins. What the dallas cowboys star on it and all but griddle and and putting salt on it. Lots of salt mike. Griddle has got to have a lot of salt in it to begin with so people just started freaking out on that i was more interested in the fact that jerry jones was eating. This cheapo. Little breakfast sandwich. That looked like it was out of the race track. No offense racetrack like a gas station breakfast sandwich. I know it's mcdonald's but yeah it was a little weird and the weirdest part about it was that it was actually compelling content because jerry jones was talking about dak prescott shoulder injury to his trainer about. Oh yeah we talked to the yankees. We talked to the rangers. And all that's happened just scaring at this plate with the sandwich and salt just pouring and you forget what the trainer says about damn bresca. I think that's an old guy thing i think. That's i think that's generational because there was a time when i was growing up. Yeah oh yeah you salted everything whether you know it was just a habit more than anything and i think that's probably what it is jerry. You know what threw me when. I first arrived in texas ten years ago. And it's still. I think weird and you probably will find this that i think it's weird weird and that is that Drive to mcdonald's mike. My breakfast item is Is a sausage mcmuffin. I don't want the just the sausage and the cheese. Okay and then. They offer me jelly. You want some jelly with what. No you're right. That is normal to me. Ever seen that anywhere. It's normal to be but need not everybody. I mean i used to cut my eggs up and put gravy on my biscuit and put grape jelly on the eggs and just mix it together and it turns into a brown mask made my mom want to throw up as a kid. Well it's gonna look like in your stomach. Yeah exactly right just getting ahead of it..

"You know the thing about texas politics is that at least it's interesting. It's not just all the same old You know the other the other states do things are kind of boring but not in texas and now it seems more that republicans and democrats here are trying to just interested in trying to sue each other. Ken paxton is going to sue the local governments like dallas county who are defying. The governor's ban on mass bandit. We're curious how this is all going to shake out so let's turn once again to dallas based attorney erica. Do he's an expert on this kind of thing and more than eric. How are you good morning doing. Well thank you. Thanks for taking the time to talk to us today. So let's just start here. Does ken paxton have a case here. When it comes to appealing all of these local defiance of governor abbot. well sure on its face You know it looks like that's what they're going to do here locally in dallas They of course have promised to to file an appeal with the fifth fifth. Quarter of appeals here in dallas According to to the order according what's happened originally back in march twenty twenty Governor issues the texas disaster act. Proclamation begins the process what that does is local government authorities the ability to kind of deal with mitigation. So no doubt from that point you know. Local governmental entities have the ability to utilize mitigation efforts like mask mandates things of that nature but July twenty ninth. I believe governor has signed a proclamation. Saying you cannot do that. You can't issue mass mandates Probably has the authority to do that. I think judge parker recently with the tiaro maintain that that was inconsistent kind of with the initial proclamation so as far as You know the what she's done and whether or not that that'll be overturned. I think that'll be. The question is is it consistent with with the original proclamation was in terms of the order so Like i said it'd probably go to the court of appeals here in dallas and You know that is a relatively progressive court. So i anticipate that that probably would be a situation where they might agree with judge parker and then ultimately it'll make its way the text supreme court where where i think it might be looked at a little bit differently. We've got an all republican court at the supreme court so it's a situation that ultimately i think the governor might actually went on this but but i think a lot of it has to do with timing They slow play this and and get it to the supreme court. Then that eventually i think a lot of the you know. If it's in a few weeks we'll probably be looking at a much different world again. So the mass mandate may be maintained for a period of time or it could become a moot point before the supreme court rules. On how how soon. I think they might get it. Yeah that's the whole thing. I think there's there's certainly situations where this could be somewhat expedited if the governor paxton push for it but again if they if they do it You know in terms of what it usually looks like in terms of appeals. It could take a while it could take weeks Important made made its way up there So it's a situation where i think. The parties might have a little control over how quickly they want this to happen. And in all honesty you know with what we're having with With the spread of the delta varian how easily transmissible it is you know they. They may take that into consideration. Slow playing this thing and allowing it to become a moot point. I think many would like for that to happen. So so we'll see how this plays itself out You mentioned you mentioned that The governor could prevail here. And i think it's really interesting to note and probably a lot of people would be wondering about this too and that is the president of the united states can issue executive orders all day long as As we saw we've seen over the past few years but a very often. They don't apply to individual states in state's rights issues but here in texas my understanding. Is that the governor does have rather unique unique power and authorities and and that cities and counties can't just decide they don't want to go along with is that right. That's true to a certain extent. I think mainly what they're looking at is the statutory language of the texas disaster act. And that's in the government code and it kind of delineate specifically what powers are invested in home and of course he's local governmental entities are actually vested with these powers. There's no doubt that they can do it. Amass mandate questions whether or not the governor can overrule that In this context with respect to the statute now generally. You're absolutely right. The governor has a wide leeway in terms of how things are done and he runs these the head of the executive and runs the you know the other agencies that kind of throughout the state so it's a situation where in i think They're looking at the more specifically the statutory language than than actually looking at the overall governmental authority of of of the actual governor. So so we'll see how this is but But i think they're going to be looking at that statute really closely to see if there is a consistency or inconsistency. I think that's going to be the ultimate question. That's going to be before the courts. All right eric thank you so much again You know. I think this is the second time we've talked to you this week. About something or another and we'll have to have to discuss your retainer. If this goes on we appreciate talking with you. It's a dallas based attorney. Eric city'll a small world thing. Eric is my college roommate's father-in-law really. Yeah wow yeah. I lived with him when he was studying for the bar. And he like holed up in his room for six months never saw and then he started dating eric's daughter at his first job and he was his father in law.

That's refusing to get vaccinated this living vaccine free and impacting the rest of us. It's like drunk drivers. You don't have the right to go out and drink and drive and put everybody else risk including your own life at risk california's one of the highest vaccination rates in america. But yet we're still seeing an increase because so many people twenty five percent california are refusing to get vaccinated so we're really trying to focus on ending this pandemic once and for all those non pharmaceutical interventions like face coverings and face masking where necessary in the absence of vaccines but with these paxton's but we can extinguish virus once and for all and get it behind us and not worry about getting our kids safely by you.

"Hi naomi i'm andy. How are you good. how are you doing. I'm doing great. I'm excited today. We have paxton smith with us. Hi paxton paxton her so excited honored to have you. I'm glad to be here now. Where would you like your story to begin. Okay well i guess i'll start in government class. I was sitting in government class and the government teacher had an assignment where we had to read through different pieces of legislation that were being proposed in texas and one of those pieces of legislation was the heartbeat bill. Now for those of you guys listening. We don't know what the heartbeat bill is the heartbeat bill or i guess it's the law now. While essentially a bans abortions after six weeks of pregnancy in texas regardless of whether the pregnancy was a result of rape or incest. And what's interesting about. This law is that it is enforced by civil lawsuit so essentially anyone regardless of their relationship to you can sue anyone who they suspect has assisted you in getting an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. And i don't really have to have a lot of proof to go off of. And so for me. When i was when i was reading this in class a large part of me did not really take it seriously. I had trouble believing that this was something that was even being proposed into law. It was insane. So i didn't give it too much thought and i finished the assignment about a week or two later. My government teacher mentioned in passing that the bill had been signed into law in a part of me. Still do not believe it. It felt kind of dystopia. If i'm being honest idea that are american government one that talks about freedom. One that talks about equality would take away a woman's ability to choose if and whether or not she becomes a mother if or whether or not she has a child if carries out a pregnancy and to me that was so hard to believe and it took me about a day or two for it to really click. And i was sitting in the band hall trying to finish a psychology assignment but i could not stop thinking about this law about how you know if i if my contraceptives didn't work if i was raped and if i got pregnant when i wasn't ready when would i do. I wouldn't have any options. How would i finance college and finance pregnancy. How what would i do. What was my way out. There was no way out and there was nothing. I could do to prevent myself from getting pregnant if i was rate. And if the contraceptives did fail so is really hard for me to think about that. And so i started to write down some of my thoughts on the page in front of me and in the band hall. I finished most of my speech that day. Although i wasn't entirely sure that i was going to give at that point in time so i went home sat with the idea of the speech for a bit and i decided to tell my parents because i told my parents everything. We have very often a form of communication. So i walk into the kitchen. They're both they're well two of them are there. I have three parents But we will get into that later. Two of them were there. And i told them okay. I'm about to tell you guys something that you might not like. But if you don't like it. I don't wanna hear it. I just want to let you know that i'm doing this. And if you have feedback or guidance or advice. That's great. But i don't want you to tell me to not do it because i'm going to do it and so i told them about what i was going to say in my speech and my mom was just instantly on board. She's a nurse so she believes that every patient deserves access to healthcare. I'm and she was also a teenage mother herself so she she is very firm belief. That if you're not ready to become a mom you shouldn't have to become a mom then and my dad. He was a bit more apprehensive. He was pretty quiet. When i told him he didn't have much to say at first. And i think. I think we're that came from was just fear that your child is about to get up at their high school graduation in texas and talk about abortion but ultimately he was supportive and i think that really helped me and getting to the point where i decided that. That was a speech. I was going to give. And then later told my other mom to moms and she while she thought that the bill was not okay and was really bad. She really was not on board with the speech. Because she worried about my scholarships being taken away or Future employment opportunities going away but she didn't like the the piece of legislation so with my parents in mind and their support generally I still was not totally on board with making the speech. And what really cemented in my mind was the idea of where i was giving the speech in who i was giving the speech too because i thought is graduation the time and place like is it really the time in place for speech like this and i thought okay. Well where else can. I reach a lot of people with this message in the only place that i could think of. Were places like tech talk or places like rallies were the only people who do see your message are the people who already agree with you and what i needed to do was reached the people who didn't care and reach the people who didn't agree with me and who didn't want me to have the right to have an abortion and so there was no better time in place than graduation because that audience was four thousand people maybe and they would all have to listen to me regardless of what they thought they couldn't just turn me off while they could but they didn't They couldn't just leave. They had to listening. How how hard. It was in how scared i was about a piece of legislation like this and they couldn't just ignore that that was my reality and the reality of so many other people's lives and if it made them uncomfortable. That was the point. Because i'm.

I'm not usually very good at expressing my gratitude for the people that i care about but i would like to say. Thank you to coach. I think he's had a bigger role in my life than he realizes. Okay as we've high school we need to make our voices heard today. I was going to talk about tv and media and content. Because it's something that's very important to me however under however under light of recent events it feels wrong to talk about anything but what is currently affecting me and millions of other women in the state. Recently the heartbeat bill was passed in texas. Starting in september there will be a ban on abortions after six weeks of pregnancy regardless of whether the pregnancy was a result of rape or incest six weeks. that's all women get and so before they realize most of them don't realize that they're pregnant by six weeks so before they have a chance to decide if they are emotionally physically and financially stable enough to carry out a full term pregnancy before they have the chance to decide if they can take on the responsibility of bringing another human being into the world. That decision is made for them by a stranger. A decision that will affect the of their lives as made by a stranger. I have dreams and hopes and ambitions. Every girl graduating today does and we have spent our entire lives working towards our future and without our input and without our consent our control over that future has been stripped away from us. I am terrified. That if my contraceptives fail. I am terrified that if i am raked then my hopes and aspirations and dreams and efforts for my future will no longer matter. I hope that you can feel how wrenching that is. I hope you can feel how humanizing it is to have the autonomy over your own body taken away from you. And i'm talking about this today. On a day as important as this on a day honoring twelve years of hard academic work on a day where we are all gathered together on a day where you are most inclined to listen to avoid like mine. A woman's voice to tell you that this is a problem and it's a problem.

"paxton" Discussed on Horror Soup
"You know there's little pins like holding someone's skin down suffering like that's crazy wild ass shit to think about so paxton gets tossed into a room some good old torture and he started pleading for his life. This is a very good for him though because he gets ball gagged and then this is when he gets a gun point this head and response so he's really down bad and the guy walks off for a second and he's been like real like this guy almost looks like this was like his first time. He's being really nervous. And that's what. I thought at first right but i think i could be completely wrong. I think the way. They're portraying him as like this guy is full on cycle is complete psycho and when you know like when he kills you. Yeah yeah. I think yeah. I don't think it was his first time. I think this is how we fuck an axe. When he kills people. Yes like prolonging make it all weird and like ritually and blah blah blah fucking weird so the guy walks off and then he comes back with an entire chainsaw which causes paxton just start puke in his ball but gag immediately. Which again like. I will agree with you on the puke thing. That's a good timing like you see someone coming at you. The chains on like. Oh yeah fuck this like that is fucking and that's a good time and that makes the torture the torture guys start to slip up quite literally like he the slip up i. He cuts off half a paxton hand and he doesn't notice that he also cuts the handcuffs off. When i said because he kind of like i don't think he meant he's gonna going around no. I wasn't supposed to happen. i think. And then not only that. He slips in paxton's blood and puke and he falls over his leg like it was just the goofiest. Should ever like you walk in idiot. Banana peel slip. Oh literally sitting over that blowing puke like it was one hundred percent the best comparison and then paxton grabs a gun shoots him in a head bam amazing done and then you also makes them pretty smart decisions because he knows someone's going head in the room to try to take them out so he pretends that he's still like bound in the torture chair which i think was of stupid because the other guy saw do dead on the floor first and then still walked in your fucking dumb. Obviously he's making that but you know they're just kind of do stupid security guards. Expect launching porn. Exactly what he was watching porn in the other room. And then yeah. The guy walks in the room security. Dude shoot them in the head. Bam you done kiss really cool. And after that he hides under a few dead bodies one of those japanese chicken. The body car believes sell. I think so. If i remember correctly it would make sense. Yeah it would make sense. I'm pretty sure. And then he ends up in a room with the butcher who easily has like the biggest back i've ever seen in my life that he's back with thick. Do that do that. A huge bag. As she was bussing arch he was like standing up straight. Fuck do you get that shit back. He had the double life without even bending over. I've never looked out someone down.

"Greyhounds until I filmed a bunch of trainers doing it they were ripping a rabbit spurlock Melissa mets horrific okay that it's terrible and after I saw the first time it was I had. Grit my teeth and and keep filming stay focused. But when you know when Grey K was saying, Hey, listen they can get another one I mean the thought went through my head of hell that's going to be fun Danilo another one of these people right in it's in a it's not fun to watch I hate having to watch it I hate it when it happens aid having to review the footage I. Hate emigrate the nose up but it's The there's a side of me that I love that challenge. No, it's happened I know that on all the farms and slaughterhouses all all the dairies I I know that there is horrific abuse but the idea that they want to keep us from seeing it that they're actively trying to stop us from seeing. And we just have to figure out how to get past them. That is fun so. I think that's how I've done it for a while I, just I I enjoy the work. But there's also some work that you have to do there, which is you know doing. I would. Imagine. Believing among and doing things to animals that you don't agree with personally that must. Yeah. Yeah. That's I. Mean I mean I'll be I'll be honest I mean that's a very difficult part in in undercover work it's what's called A. moral. Injury, we know which a lot of people suffer on jobs There's a lot of different people deal with that I have a lot of friends or soldiers, and they've had to deal with that and moral injury is where you buy action or inaction you do something that is immoral to you and I'm not GonNa lie that has drastically has drastically changed who I am I've dealt with a lot of. The I don't with a lot from that. You know I'm not GONNA lie. But I don't want to. I like to deflect a talk about how I enjoy the Haitians. I I don't want to try to make. make people think that you know that I'm like like Whoa is me that things are so tough for me the obviously the animals go through a lot worse. And you know is the focus that's on me, I like for the focus to be that. I'm a professional who can discuss this evidence and I can tell you for a fact, and if you don't believe me, you can look at the footage and you can see for yourself. You know that's I think it's the most productive thing I can do. I would like to switch species. We know that they you have a very specific dairy undercover investigation that is releasing soon and want to go through What you saw there again, it's an animal products right that comes from those animals but to me I, you know I feel like dairy is is certainly on the high end of of the most egregious and cruelest in the animal food industry because there's a, there's only about two hundred, sixty, five, million dairy cows in the world and You know we know there's billions and billions and billions of chickens but a dairy cow sufferers A. Just, a horrific cycle of horror from the moment that they're born for almost five years anywhere between four and five years is when you know the dairy cows are slaughtered for cheap beef, which would be you know McDonald's Hamburger Burger King Hamburger So chickens are killed anywhere. You know seven to nine weeks or so um and pigs around six months and then beef cattle. Around nine or twelve anywhere in there So I've done the math and that tells us that since dairy cows suffer for almost five years four and a half they suffer for two hundred and fifty weeks straight versus what might be about seven weeks for a chicken which means they suffer twenty seven more times than chickens do and I've had some arguments with some. Folks effective. Altruism. Folks right because there are just about the actual lives and I think that we really have to look at just the lives but the link of suffering not just the amount of lives that are suffering I, think the link of suffering is really important here so Take us through this in dairy investigation. However, you want to start and finish it What did you see that maybe was different than some of the other ones that you've done but for those people out there listening to who are maybe vegetarians like we all were, you know that the products you know they're just milking the cows, you have to milk cows. Right Yeah. Should you got it absolutely so All your listeners who you know you're you're if you're you do drink milk or animal products lenny prefaced by saying. Don't take my word for this. Do Euro research everything that I'm about to say to you is online. And and in many of these cases, law enforcement acted on it. So you know even when the prosecutors aided me, they still had to take and use it right. So I worked at a three dairy facilities I, worked at a CAF ranch raising cavs, the dairy industry I've worked veal slaughterhouse, and then I've worked at. This. Facility. called. Wrath County Gary Sales and. Iraq county jails it's located in Texas in it buys in it sells dairy cows most of them what you would call spent dairy cows meaning that they are you know three or five years old they're not milking enough and it's time for them to go off and become beef. So very quickly when I can tell you is that At at the dairy farm, the kind of cruelty that you're talking about is that you have worked at a fund that's two hundred cows, seven, hundred cows, and then a facility. where it had to have in my half had over five thousand cows. And the same crimes everywhere and that you have cows who they're young they don't know what's going on. They gave their first calf so they can milk and then. They have to learn to walk into the milking stall and to get the milkers on their freaked out they don't they don't WanNA walk in. So people get frustrated. So they beat. they they kick and they get frustrated when the milkers put on them so people beat them. Or they get old at It's hard for them to stand there walking milk. It's hard for them to walk through to get to the stole. So they collapse. So people beat them you. When you see these videos, you're going to see this. I think this is terrible I want to stress. This is not the fault of the workers I've been right there with these. Workers Right there shoulder to shoulder with them watching them as they're doing. This is not the fault of them. This is if they if they don't, they believe that if they don't beat those cows, they're going to get fired and someone else is gonna come those cows they could they. They know that they have to just get the job done or because they constantly have it. Held over their head they're gonNA, get kicked out of the country because many of them are undocumented immigrants, right So the fact that you see this in every facility, every facility that there is means it's it's a problem with the system but so these cows of part of the reason they get week is that. They're having to give up all this milk and then and then, but then there, it's not just that it's not just that they're having ABC cavs and and get Milton have cavs and get milk with it's also in how facilities setup for dimple when they eat when say say the cow walk into the grass Takes a step, put your head down. She takes another step but head down angle like a forty five and she eats. But when they have to go to the gate where they have just a bunch of corn second, front them, their hooves are like this and so to reach down. Pressure goes to the outside of their hoods and that hurts your ankles. Right. So that's why they're ankles go bad why their hopes start to go bad. And that's why you see a lot of. Cows. So at a facility like like Iraq county dairy sales. Cows would show up. Dead. Cows would show up and they could make it off the trailer cows become down on the spot. It.

"Yeah. No, it's true. It's true. Now Pete has been to over seven hundred puppymills and he's gone undercover in scores of Commercial Kennels Factory Farms kitten mills fisheries all to bring abusers to justice. His work has been key and encouraging several states to ban dog and cat sales and pet stores clean California, and it is also helped end the illegal practice of selling pets to labs for experimentation I. Bet a lot of people didn't know that that when their pets disappeared that they might have been sent to a lab to be cut open by experimenters and kept in. A cage, the rest of their lives. He's written a book called rescue dogs, which is amazing. It recounts his experiences and undercover investigator. Yes. But the also educates readers in this book on how to be a responsible pet parrot no matter the pet you get and he also talks about adopting not shopping and we're GonNa talk about that today because a Lotta people think oh By a pet because I don't WanNa get an adopted animal, they might be you know have a lot of quote unquote problems but no pete convinces you in this book that that is. Definitely. A wrong thinking that actually adopting is the way to go. So now he also has this new investigation which we're going to also be disc- discussing today, which is quite shocking and it's just been released about the dairy industry. So it's perfect for us. So Pete Paxton thank you for all the work you've done and welcome to the switch for good podcast. Thank you. It is an honor to be on here I really appreciate it. It's a real honor to have you. Can we start off with your first case nineteen years ago? You brought down the notorious CDC Baird. Who is a be dealer who was selling dogs Pets to. Specifically dogs to vet schools and labs, and this your your efforts in this investigation became a very, very successful HBO documentary called Dealing Dogs which you can actually see online now and What led you to this very first investigation where you investigated baird a class B dealer. Will so I. Did that for a group called last chance for animals they had been trying to hit that target for years and years and. I had just started rights on this young. Guy. It'd be an investigator. Sounds Great. And I was learning to do mobile surveillance and doing some sedentary surveillance and you know that kind of thing. We went to check out that place we surveyed the target. You know we we. We saw the facility like we we located a trench where dog bodies had been dumped and I'll spare your listeners some of the more gruesome details, but there was evidence that certainly there was a. There was abuse going on. And the thing that. I would really love for you to share and you could just we can. Just you can always say before here comes some graphic and people confess for sure eight. Okay I mean we only are living through what we think of in our head which make be completely incorrect. God should it will. So what we saw was a you know we see this facility, which is this massive Kennel where everything is blocked from view. From Martin grow already a tiny road in a small town in the ozarks of Arkansas even just going down that road you can't see anything right and so we're looking at these covered Kennels at the on the and we're on the back of the property. We see this trench that they've dug and we Gobert his massive trench, it is filled with trash. In. It's filled with a dog bodies and many of the Dodd bodies are cut open and some of their wagons out and there's a table sitting next to the trench. It is covered in blood and it has a bloody knife on it. So we're trying to figure out what the hell that means or what's going on. So I went down into the trench. and. I was trying to go through the bodies in skating them looking for chips because we knew some of them were stolen pets. But they all started collecting trash. They were throwing away the USDA tags with the bodies which is legal collected those. And all the paperwork I could find. So we get back to a hotel room and we're sifting through all of this, you know this dirty and bloodstain trash. And what we saw was that there were these forms, the called CBI's certificates of veterinary inspection. You have a dog and you want that dog to cross state. Line. To have CV that's that's the law. Will these dogs at this target were being sold to research labs all across the country so they had to have a CPI for each one the Pi Steve Garrett that I was with. He's the reason the whole case happened we're in this hotel room we're looking at him were set were spreading them out on on a table and he says man every the it says that a vet looked at their eyes nose ear skin every mouth every inch of the dogs. He goes. There's no way of vet is looking at this many dogs being sending out dozens a week, and he said I can tell just by looking at them that a vet signed them all at the same time. So I think what's happening is that event is pre signing them and then they're filling out the forms. And I said, okay we'll would what we did and he said, well, we know we're a put together a plan and I I went back home and then one day Steve called me he goes you know. So here's the thing is I. Don't think surveillance is GonNa cut it I. Think You Gotta We gotta do something else you're GonNa you'RE GONNA have to go to Arkansas said okay. Yeah. I'll do it I'll. Go out to Arkansas okay. You're going to have to get ready you're GONNA have to find a place to live you're going to have to get ready to establish yourself in the environment I did not realize That I. Just agreed to going undercover into this facility and there's no is going to back out at that point. So and so the goal of it, which the HBO documentary about that case called dealing dogs focuses on the animal cruelty in a civilised important it because at also reveals the USDA corruption that allowed this target to operate like this right but the the reason that I was there for so long was because I was waiting for an opportunity to find those CBI's because we knew that every single form that I found that was blank and pre signed. That was going to be fraud that was going to be a federal offence, which is why we were giving evidence directly to the US Attorney's office and it took. Almost five months before I was able to get access to the owners of that facility and Patsy Baird, and I could see in the top right corner of patchy desk, a stack of those CD is and I could fumble through them and see that they were pre signed and they're empty and I just started snapping pictures and that was what ultimately led to the target getting boxed. Wow. And Can you tell us a little bit about how you even got to be hooked up with Steve Garrett you had wanted to be in the FBI right? Yes. So originally that was my goal was that I thought okay I I I I was already a vegetarian and I was thinking like, what is it that I wanna do in the world that would really help out I thought what if I maybe if I go into some kind of law enforcement I can do something really good to try and help out the world, and so it was looking into every aspect of law enforcement that exists and I looked at the FBI and I saw they had this unit called the serial killer child abduction unit and everybody knows what that is now a back then in the nineties, nobody knew what that was. And There was a book that came out from one of the people that had founded the unit and the book was called Mindhunter and the author Douglas. He explains.

"Vouch High Dodson by so it's election season and I early voting is really what people are talking about. Now because places are having fewer polls in there where they normally you might have been voting before might not be there now. So we want to encourage people to vote early voting is so important to me I registered voters for eighteen years once a week for eighteen years with my friend Chuck I'm actually going to be. Registering with him again, next week California though you can go into the polls and register right there and vote same time good to know. Yeah. Yeah. In some states not everywhere and if you're a felon, you can also vote in most states and pretty much all of them I think in Florida I think is they made it. Okay. But then 'cause I used to register voters and people would think that they couldn't vote because they had a record and no, that's not true felons. We want you to vote but I've also voted in every single election. Since nineteen, eighty, two except for one and the reason was is because I was I got cast in a movie and I didn't get my absentee ballot in time. So. Please folks if you're GonNa vote absentee make sure that you get your ballot in time and vote and if you if you don't get it, then go em- person voted the polls person right and because of covid because Kurkin I got our sample ballots whatever a few days ago and then after dinner last night we had a little sash it was Super Fun it was. It was a practice ballot. So we went through all of the people and read their statements and discuss them and you know filled it in so that we can just copy when we get the real ones. But on the sample ballot says that everybody absentee you're not will be mailed a ballot in California, but not every state, the state every state is different some states are mailing to everybody. Some states I think there are nine states that have been voting completely absentee for years where my mom lives in Oregon thirty years the state of Oregon has been mailing just doing elections just APPs D, which is actually smart is much cheaper. I'm personally have always loved going to the polls. So even though I'm get an absentee ballot automatically every time there's an election I go to the polls. If I'm not helped volunteering I go myself and dropped my absentee ballot off just because I like going there. Yeah I it's so I mean I think. Is I want to encourage everyone to do something similar like Kurkin, I did last night with your spouse with your mom with your aunt with your friend on your friends like you know right. You say you and and used to have a parties that went over all the proposition. Every single person had to come focused and educated on one of the. Proposition, and then we're doing the propositions tonight I. Don't know who knows. There's quite a few for California's always are so that that's going to be we might have to break that up and you two sessions. So it was it was really fun last night learning about all of of people that are running for city council and you know our little. Tiny town. Irvine. So and it's really important by the way to vote. On the local elections two, this is not just a presidential election. Yeah. Because the local elections, those people become senators and Congress people and so definitely educate yourselves on. Those takes a little bit of time sometimes too I recommend that people go to the sites that have their political penchant and and see how what the Pixar for those outlets, those newspapers and online sites or people you admire who are they voting for? If you absolutely don't know at all about the the person or the proposition and if people want to. Encourage people to get out Reggie. Make, sure they're registered get out and vote It's. It's good to know that a hundred million people didn't vote in two, thousand, sixteen and many of those people were under the age of thirty yet ninety five percent of young people are on social media yet supposedly only nine percent of them are actually getting news. Hard news from those channels they're just mostly being entertained. So that's where feel good voting comes in my love this organization I've been kind of whatever you want to say working with them for about the last three weeks my cousin connected me with a genetic, the founder So feel good voting uses behavior change science where people are influenced to change by peers, role models, and indirect messages. So they are converting viewers. Voters I should say rapidly and at an extremely low cost they are on if you're on instagram there on facebook too but I found on. At.

"That's amazing bumper sticker because. Being truly authentic to yourself and I'm not lost on what you said. A couple of minutes ago about all the branding works, you did for all those organizations that the majority of people are well aware of they know so I know for a fact that I if consumed marketing from those organizations. The you work I know it. I did I didn't see your initials in the corner. I kinda wish I did because. I'm a firm. Believer and I and I recognize that because. When you get to where we are in life, you recognize. Yeah, there's something that is existing like. I'm looking at my laptop or my iphone. Yes iphone I of course we can think about Steve Jobs, but and Johnny I've, but there's countless people that put all types of time and effort, blood, sweat and tears into making that device a reality. And I don't see their names on it, but I know they exist. And I'm thankful in all the things that I use that. Make my life easier for the people behind the scenes. That actually made it happen. And the fact that you went you know what? I need to make shelly. Paxton the brand and Let's focus on that the not. Something that you sun. Early on in in this conversation, which is putting ourselves, I and I think. This is this is one of my principles of being achieved so lot asserted that we celebrate that self. I isn't selfish because if we don't get. Nowhere. In honor our truth, you know, live into our truth, then we you know in fuel ourselves with what what really fills us up and full fills us then we've got nothing to give. We don't know who we are kind of direction lists, and in our our were empty, right? We don't have anything to give anybody else so I feel so passionately about salt I. It's not selfish. It's actually the greatest thing we can do. Because I wasn't taking care of myself. To the point, you made about sleep deprivation right and there was a lot of that happening. I I had in my story. I talk a lot about the illnesses. That I ignored throughout time, and they were always happening when I was. was making decisions that were out of alignment with the with the truth of who I am and what I want, and you know my path, not someone else's path. The big offer me is that I was living my dad's dream. I was basically living my dad's career, and he was my biggest cheerleader on the sidelines. Because of course, that's what he wanted to see. Right so I. Really do believe that you know for men and women especially for women that we need to embrace this cell first piece because I couldn't show up here right now. Having this conversation with you and be the lighthouse that I am in the world if I, if I'm not taking care of myself, it becomes very obvious. And it's it's crucial, and it's one of the key thing aside to help people and. Preventing Them from their continued burn out or preventing burnt out in the first places. You have to take care of yourself, I and when you do in you truly. Present the best version of yourself in life than when you do, give and serve others. They're getting a much better version of you than they ever would have before. And it's it's actually. Benefiting people that you serve. Better if you take care of yourself, I and it's it's a mind shift and I. If you mentioned a few things during a chat so far about. Just a slight pivot and what you're saying to yourself in what you say. Is huge difference in life in a variety of things you do. It's yeah. It's so true and I would also..

"Something different in order to. Get, past all the nightmares for one, and that could lead to some significant health concerns. If you don't get restful sleep over time, your body ends up using all of us energy to repair the damage of not getting enough restful sleep, which then mitigates the or creates the opportunities were certain ailments and bugs and. Chronic diseases can sneak in because your body isn't repairing itself overtime. So I commend you for for catching it and and and being. Brave enough to walk away from what you said is a dream position a dream career because you put yourself first, and that's brave, and that takes a lot of courage, but. I command. I commend you for doing that because it's not an easy decision. I know it wasn't in for many people. The they kind of say you know what I'm. I'm just going to ride it out. It'll get better and it never does. Just doesn't. Humans play these dangerous games of ice should, and I'll be happy when you know all of these things and they just. They lead to a life full of regret. You know and I committed to myself in one I. Just kind of Said are I if not now then when? And what if I just give myself a year to just go and see where this leads me what what doors portals it opens and invest in the possibility of my future south. And I think even more importantly in the how I think as a marketer. What really struck me and I did a lot of deep work on this Kinda got deeper and deeper into my sabbatical. What really struck me is what if Shelly? Paxton is the most iconic brand I could ever represent. And! It really reframed my thinking because I had spent my entire career. You know in the shadows of very proudly in the shadows of supporting these huge brands all around the world, and really Kinda sublimating my own, and so that led to deeper work, which led to an epiphany for me, and maybe this'll be helpful for anybody. Listening I realized that I had been living my. My Entire Life, rebelling or most of my Life I. She'd say rebelling against. There's a reason why the subtitle of my book is called. A corporate rebels guide to finding your Best Life I. Came I shot out of the womb like kicking and screaming and rebelling against my parents and tradition religion in thirty. You name it right. The list was long and the Tiffany for me. As I went on this journey. Is that the real power in being a rebel and awakening that rebel within is rebelling four. An concept. It just was a radical shift for me, and it's how I live my life and run my businesses and coach, other people I'm basically. I'm challenging everyone to rebel for who you are. What you believe in and the impact that you WanNa have in the world, and that is a superpower. My I think my favorite line from the entire book is authenticity is the truest form of rebellion. And when I landed on, that just came through me, I was like that's it like that is my bumper sticker for.

"Leadership podcast boundaries burnout. You make the choice. Here's euros to Michael Savage. Welcome back. I've got Shelly Paxton online shelley. How are you I am very good? How are you I? Am Great? We're GONNA. Talk about being the chief soul officer of your life, and I know that it's going to raise the eyebrows of many asking. What in the world does that mean so tell us a little bit about your back story in in for a lot of friends and family that listen to my show and. Colleagues across the globe. We may even talk about you. Know Hogs a little bit in this episode and I'm not talking about pigs, but uh, so tell us about your back story in the work that you're doing now. Right so many back story I come out of the corporate world. I spent twenty six years as an advertising and marketing executive. I was I had the good fortune to Stewart amazing brands from McDonalds visa to a awhile to most recently Harley. Davidson, hence, the HOG drink for instance. In Yeah, I spent. A spent the last six and a half years of my corporate career was as the chief marketing officer of. Harley Davidson incredible. You know it's sort of. It's. It's such an honor to have been part of the story of these iconic brands, and yet I realized as I kind kinda climb to the top, and I had incredible success, and I had a lot of good fortune along the way that I was ticking all the boxes of success on the outside, but it was fueling empty on the inside, so I won't even go as far as to say I was feeling a little bit emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt and I. Kept asking myself the question. Wake up in the morning and wonder like how could work for this incredible iconic brand that people tattoo all over their bodies, and it's not fueling the I don't feel fulfilled and backed. I. Kinda give up with the term is that I don't feel success full I feel success empty and I kept asking I. Felt this question like is this. There is like you get to the top I'm in 'em in a you know one of the sexiest coolest rules in marketing people would give their limbs to be in this job in yet I just wasn't. I wasn't feeling IT I. I wasn't feeling like this was my collie and so ultimately what ended up happening as you know as these things do like we know, we're sort of out of alignment with ourselves. That little voice inside of us if we're not connected to it like it, whispers to us, and then shouts, and then it just takes a two by four to the solar plexus that you apt to listen and. That's what ultimately happened to me. In my final year at Harley was really clear like I was I was no mean I was busy myself to adopt I was approaching. Burn out and I. Just wasn't I was pretending not to know that there was something wrong and I wasn't you know on my own? You know Dream Pass if you will and so I had a a nightmare at come, visit me five nights a week..

"It just breezes chaos right so I think that what's really important is both parties being willing to communicate and removing that emotion. Now you can't always remove it but even having like a neutral space where when we sit at the kitchen table or when we sit on the Sofa we are both going to say our peace. And we're going to be as emotionless as possible and discuss it and that's our safe space to get it out. Without those emotions emotions are are fear of repercussion. Yeah would that be part of it to feeling like if we really share? How a really feeling about it that you know. I'M GONNA be in trouble or coming from the child side in the parents side. I'm trying to remember back. You know what that felt like for me you know. Yeah that's awesome now. What about do you feel like? There's environmental factors. I mean we've talked about mindset and language and how those are huge in helping us you'll get to a better more positive level of understanding and education and growth but what about do you feel like there's any environmental things that are going on within the schools are the homes. Let's talk homes because that's what we have control over sure. Yeah I was GONNA say as far as the schools just parents need to know that the picture they have of what's going on in school probably isn't what's really going on in school and just having an understanding that. I'M NOT SAYING. School is a terrible place but the environment is probably a little more chaotic. Been the parents are envisioning scary. Yeah just just having that understanding that when your child says hey. I didn't hear the teacher say the homework. That may be very true right or I didn't know we had homework or my teacher didn't tell us where to put this paper. All of those things may be very trip right as far as homa. I know I'm putting you on the spot I mean. I think what tends to happen is that everybody has their own space. Especially when we're talking about teams here. You know. The teens go to their bedroom and they stay there and they do their homework there and they do their computer stuff there and depending on your family practice. Maybe there's a family dinner. Maybe there's not because we tend to be so over scheduled which is another thing we can get to and that there's really not a lot of opportunities for that connection to happen so I think that can play a really big role can whereas if you have to be in a common space at least for some of the night you're more likely to have that connection and that interaction right you know if your your homework at the kitchen table or somewhere else right now. Is it worth having? You know you're talking about time and I think family time is so important you know to really and not just that. We're all sitting in the same room because we can all be sitting in the same room but glued having a TV blaring and so no one's participating in any kind of conversation anyway right. Yeah you know so having those activity. Are there things that you try to encourage families to do with their time together? Or that's kind of a you know. Feel what's right for you? I mean Feel what's right for you but some ideas Something my husband and I love to do is we'll listen to a podcast so there's technology involved but we pause it and we talk about it anytime. Any point comes up we posit we talk about it so you could do that with the news or a podcast or something. You're all reading together a newspaper article and have a conversation about it. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what to talk to you or what to say when you're talking to someone again but having a starting place like that can be really helpful. That's a great idea. I love that. What about do you guys do or is this even a word anymore? For when you're dealing with your children is boundaries are we talking about boundaries at all because you talked about time and I think part of time is boundaries to knowing how to say no that it's okay not to be involved in every single thing and you know doing all the things. It's okay to just be a kid. Yeah Yeah and I think that is incredibly important. You know we're kind of in this culture of we have to do all these things so we look good so that we can go to college right and we end up with over scheduled kids over scheduled parents and you know. There's more than one child at home. One child's going here the child's going there and then went to families spend time together. I would say that would like to do with. My students is a visual schedule. Mckay so different than just like the calendar on your phone I use an excel spreadsheet or like a Google spreadsheet and where they can actually see their chunks of time down to half hour fifteen minutes and then look for when they have pockets. Free Time and decide how they wanNA feel that up. Is there an activity? They want to do how much of that free time is going to be spent on homework is. That's the other thing is that sometimes kids will just say. Well I have three hours. Just GONNA do my homework for three hours. We'll know you shouldn't be doing your homework for the only that's a hard thing to say. Free Free Hours that you have to count on my fingers. Yeah to get them out. I seen a lot of parents. Do I like to call it like a command center where it's like a big almost wipe off magnetic board where there's multiple children they all have different colors and put in there so you can get that visual representation? I talk with my hands to get that. Visual representation of no-win is the free time. They're exactly and I think that it's really important that you actually block out family time absolutely. That's something my husband and I have started doing that. We plan a week in advance. We put it on the calendar. It doesn't have to be long sometimes. It's not practical for it to be long. He and I committed to at least one hour that all four of us have family time right and didn't have anything exciting. You know it's just sometimes we'll play it in the back room with the kids but that's technology free unless we're unless is dancing and we're listening to music right but you know it's not watching a movie or playing on our ipads or whenever. I love it and if you don't black that time out it becomes really difficult to make sure it happens. Yes and we have really firm rules around it that once it goes on the calendar the only thing that can interfere with it absolute business emergencies or family emergencies. Gotcha but it has to be a real emergency. I love that you know. I think when we talk about toxins in our life there's so many different realms that it can go into and sometimes when I talked to guess they're like Whoa. How is this even related to toxins? But think about this. What we've talked about tonight so far you know we've talked about mind and language we've talked about connection community you know so. There are so many things that without some of those things it's toxic to our life and you know and with some of the things it's toxic to our lives so it's so important that we look at all the different ways that we're either creating a great environment for health of everything you know are creating a hostile environment. I love it. Yeah and when you're starting that family time if it's something you're not used to. It might be awkward at first. And that's okay you know. Play a game. Play this stupidest game you can too. Just play up that awkwardness absolutely and just commit to doing it. In to get buy in with the kids can be hard so just going at it as it's an hour. I'm asking you for one hour ride. We're not looking at it for the next ten weeks. We're looking at it for one hour this week right. Let's give it a try. Yeah give it a try. Give it a moment I yeah I can so relate so and I know that I've can direct in this conversation and I wanna be able to ask you carry. Are there things that you feel are important in this round? Were talking with families because really. This is a family issue. Are there things that I haven't brought to light yet that you would like to bring out before we run out of time? I think we've kind of talked about it but maybe not in the same way but the struggles that you're are seeing with your child especially if it's labeled as adhd anxiety or an executive functioning issue those struggles are not inherent personality slots. Don't be looking at them in labeling them as you know your kid just being lazy goes back to that but looking at them from their symptoms of a problem whether it's an actual biological physiological problem or whether it's an environmental problem or a combination of the two can be any number of things but looking at it from that perspective and what can we do that gets to the root of the problem to then make the symptoms better. I love that. I love that you gave it as getting to the root and I think some of the you know obviously what we talk about here on. The podcast is given some little tidbits of suggestions. But how can people if they like what you're saying and really want to connect with you? What's the best way for them to find you so that they can hook up with you and have you help? Best Bet right now is half on facebook and send me a FACEBOOK MESSENGER IN K. Just shoot me a message me that you heard me on. Amy's podcast in. We'll have a chat so as your facebook is that carry. Paxton are carry hers Burger. I think now it's carrying Paxton. Hurts Burger okay? Sounds we'll make sure in the show notes to facebook is really the best way to get a hold of you. It is or is going to get confusing because it's a different name. You could shoot me an email at Carey Paxton at white male dot com so long story with the last name thing. I was looking at it maiden married. You know who knows there could be another story where I mean. That's pretty much what it is. It's just some things got changed some things didn't it just kind of this craziness. You know that I just haven't gotten around to dealing with yeah see. I didn't know the full answer on that before we went live on the air. So that's why introduced jazz coach Jerry. I didn't WANNA say packed in and so we're going to find you on facebook under if we look for you under. Carry Hers Burger. That's why I said that wrong. To Deny Hurts Burger bit courts burger any variation of that works L. K. And then the Kerry Paxton at Y. Mail Dot Com. That's Awesome Kerry. You've had so much valued information to give not just our teens and parents to you know so. You're hitting Kinda dual dynamics here for people to listen and grab some tidbits from that so I appreciate you taking the time to come on our podcast. Thank you thank you very much.
"paxton" Discussed on Dog Save The People
"And I've also met one of the meanest Dachshund Gillette. You'd never know screw. Yeah but the other thing that I've learned we explain this in rescue. Dogs is that. There's a lot of dogs that I've encountered where some of them are there even aggressive just afraid but aggressive and there's ways to reach those dogs and they're not necessarily aggressive because they just want to hurt you. They're scared yes right. They just need a little bit of time and the more that we work on communities coming together to adopt instead of buying from readers the more opportunities we have to open up shelters and foster communities to take time to save these dogs lives yeah and fostering is such a huge aspect that I always encourage people to do and not everyone one can do that. But if you can't it's just it's a wonderful way to get the dog or the cat out of the shelter environment into a home and just make also to make room for another animal. That may that may end up in that place which is part of the solution by itself because say you get a puppy from a breeder. They're generally pulled away from the breeding mother at about five to six weeks so they don't know to not play by so they're gonNA play back. They develop separation anxiety that point because pulled away from the mother discs. They're going to be within for about two weeks. They're going to be two. Three weeks are going to be in another little cage out of the welding box with their litter mates then they go off to a broker or right into a truck and they go off to a pet store. Now there's somewhere else and boom then they're at you're right. They're going to be much more susceptible to having some kind of an illness than dogs at the shelter. But what you're talking about someone someone. Fostering a dog right which a lot of great rescues do now. That dog already has an understanding about being house. Trained no puppy does that dog is also probably GonNa know about how to walk. Walk on a leash. You'll know if that dog likes kids likes other dogs likes cats likes to go swimming in the pool or fetch a ball. That is a situation where you're more liked to know who you're actually bring into your family. Do I agree with you but you have to understand. The dog's behavior is going to change to some degree to a limited or a permanent amount of time after being a new environment so what the shelter staff have seen is not going to be necessarily entirely which is even. The dog goes to your house but in general you know you'll you'll I love if you're getting the dog from say a small municipal shelter that has they don't do any training any. Fostering that you nothing like that then it it. Is You know you have a lot more unknowns but you you just want to make sure that you are prepared to spend a lot of time with with your dog especially when you first bring your dog home yes and the easiest part of that advice is an understanding which we explain the book understanding immediately. Take the dog comes home. House training begins right away. You know and also you know walking on a leash begins right away moment. You bring your dog home and that information is simpler and it's the most common thing that you see for a lot of wonderful dog trainers where you can get that information and their books online. It's an entirely different process. And you just have to make sure you have the time. And the patience. It'll be worth it though. I promise it'll be worth it. No absolutely I mean getting a dog or adopting. It's a huge commitment. Yeah and I remember when I adopted my first dog tiny tim few weeks later. I was calling the shelter. I don't think I can do this. You know you might have to come get him and they're like just give you know give it some some time and we worked it out. And he was a love of my life and a nice really. Didn't do it perfectly. And there's a lot of things that in retrospect I wish I had done it just as far as training and doing being more consistent yep absolutely. I know that for a lot of people. Adopting not necessarily a realistic option. And that's fine. That's why we also explain in the book the other options that exist and how you can do them now while that includes fostering yes it also includes volunteering shelter and also includes understanding who to donate to and what kind of legislation you should support and that final one knowing what kind of legislation to support now is the critical time desmond to as we are seeing being a momentum that is building for passing laws to ban pet stores from selling puppies breeders and while there are false rescues views that are abusing that system. We're also seeing legislation that can keep the false rescues out as well so that puppy Miller's cannot be selling puppies from pet stores California. California has made massive headway on that. There's several other states we need next. Every listener can do something about that. That's good to know because that is some something that again it goes state by state yes and for people to understand what those laws or you can get behind them and support them. One hundred percent and New York is the state. We almost almost pass a law recently. We had some hold outs. But if New York passes that law so that pet stores can't sell puppy. Yes puppymills finals. It is the biggest blow to the puppy mill industry. That could possibly do so fingers crossed. Yes so the book is called rescue dogs and it's where they come from where they act the way they do and how love them well and I love that the the the dedication to this book which now it just came out this October. So it's just it's very fresh. The dedication reads for everyone defending those who cannot defend themselves and that is so far reaching and again I mean. I'm getting chills. The work that you do and people people like yourself it's very courageous and it's incredibly selfless and it's not something. Many people could do to be able to kind of withstand. Dand the things you witness and to have to kind of just be the witness and not really be able to do anything while you're in that situation but what you're doing is is so so helpful in the long run and I'm just I'm so grateful to have you here with us today Pete. Is there anything else that you'd like to share with our listeners. The only thing I'd like to share is that I'm aware that everything I've ever done has obviously it takes a huge team. That team includes includes law enforcement includes prosecutors. Yes but you know listen to influence legislators but a vast bulk of that team includes people like you and your listeners. We need people to speak up. We need people to get educated located. And it's not as hard as you think. It's not as hard as you think to learn who to donate to what lost pass so I urge you you know by the by back for someone else. Get people educated. Welcome to the team. Thank you yes so. The book is hold rescue. Dogs a complete guide rescue dogs from America's leading animal welfare undercover investigator. Pete Paxton and he received some help writing the book from a gentleman named Gene Stone. Who's written some amazing books about the world world of animals rescue and welfare? Veganism all those great things and Pete thank you for joining us today. Thank you so much. Keep up the good lakes for bringing the vegan doughnuts donuts. You've got it now joy I will. I can afford them. Okay thank you thank you. It was fascinating to hear about Pete Secret Adventures and I think it's brave of him to have gone through that putting himself at risk for the sake of saving rescuing dogs dogs. I'm also an advocate for rescue dogs. Something we've talked about a lot on this podcast and I think that it's always an option for everyone to consider when they're thinking about getting a dog instead of of getting one from a breeder not that I think it's wrong to get dogma breeder but I really do feel that they're so many rescue dogs in this world in need of homes if you're interested in hearing more or you can find Pete's rescue dogs book on Amazon. I think he's doing really important work. I.
"paxton" Discussed on First Class Fatherhood
"And what was the transition like for you Lonnie going from having twins, and then adding third and eventually a fourth child because I talk about this on the show a lot for my wife, and I our most challenging transition came from having two three children. But ours came one at a time. So which transition would you say was the most challenging for you guys. You know, we because we had twins right out of the gate. I thought that you know, we've just we we built the model. You know, we have the sketch. Down. We've built the model we plug him right in. We get them sleep in. We get 'em eating at the proper times. We stay tight on the mass schedule. So, you know, the transitions from two to three or three to four haven't been that top, you know, my wife probably answer much better. She's the one who's who's in it all day long. But you know, I I'm a true believer in the schedules in the in the sleep schedules and eating schedules. That is I would I would say that's the biggest key to our success. And they're just happiness overall as kids now, they are getting into, you know, my we're gonna start potty training my youngest one he's he's not even two yet. So my wife has graduated these kids so early on in their in their lives from diapers to potty trained or the the cribs to the. Regular bed. I mean, all of these kids have been potty trained in regular beds by the time that two and a half three years old. No, more highchairs. I mean, she she's a real big. She loves these milestones. She wants to hit him early. Get it out of the way. So that just makes life easier. So you know for for us. It's it's kind of hitting these milestones. And these goals and letting them just become you know, children and not just stay in this baby stage for so long. Yeah. Awesome. And you may have touched on this a little bit already Lonnie. But the last question I'm gonna hit you with love to ask all the dads that I get on the podcast, what type of advice? Do you have that new father or for that about that be dad who's out there listening? Yeah. I mean, that's that's the main thing is the schedules. I mean, you know, everyone it's so cliche on the baby wise books and whatnot. But we followed that thing to teat, and you can tell the parents who who who who say they're following the schedule, but they give in along the way, you know, you're not supposed to feed him in the in at certain times. In the middle of the night or turn the light on you give them a little bit. And let them go right back to sleep. Or you know, they might miss a nap. And then they're out in their cranky. Or you you you let them come in your bed with you. And you know, you guys might have teams on your on your screens. And it's and it's screwing them themselves. You know, we're we're biggest advice is like Stanley schedules. Let them cry it out, and and it'll train them to to be happy kids. Yeah. Great advice. I loved the message. There's been a lot of fun for me. I gotta say Lonnie Paxton, you are a first class father. And thank you so much for give me a few minutes time on first-class fatherhood operation. Thanks for the time. And the yeah. For all the dads out there. Enjoy it. It's a it goes quick. But it's something that lasts forever. Well, Santa right back with a couple of closing thoughts.
