Pensacola base shooter coordinated with al Qaeda.
"Coming up on five minute. News Pensacola based on coordinated with Al Qaeda cell phone data suggests lockdown protests may have spread virus and US watchdog firing maybe tied to Saudi arms. Deal it's Tuesday may nineteen. I'm Anthony Davis the gunman who killed three. Us sailors at a military base in in Florida. Last year repeatedly communicated with Al Qaeda operatives about planning in the months leading up to the attack. Us officials said yesterday as they lashed out at apple for failing to help them open. The shooter phones so they could access key. Evidence law enforcement officials discovered contacts between Muhammad Side al-Shamrani and operatives of Al Qaida off the FBI. Technician succeeded on their own in breaking into two cell phones. That had previously been locked that the shooter a Saudi Air Force officer tried to destroy before he was killed by law enforcement. We now have a clearer understanding of al-Shamrani associations and activities in the years months and days leading up to this attack attorney. General William Bar said at a news conference the new details including that Al Sham. Ronnie had been radicalized abroad before he arrived in the. Us raised fresh questions about the vetting of Saudi military members. And trainees who spend time at American basis. The criticism directed at apple could also escalate divisions between the US government and the massive Technology Company. Which has rejected the characterization that it has been unhelpful. The company said that it does not store customers pass codes nor does it have the capability to unlock passcode protected. Devices and believes that weakening encryption could create vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers. Al-shamrani was killed by a sheriff's deputy during the December six rampage at a classroom building at Pensacola Naval Air Station. He'd been undergoing flight training at Pensacola as part of an instruction offered at American military bases to foreign nationals. Besides the three sailors who died eight other people were injured once unlocked by the FBI? Us officials said the phones revealed contact between Al Sham. Ronnie and dangerous operatives from Al Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula or a Qa p. including the night before the attack. They also revealed that he had been radicalized since at least twenty fifteen before he arrived in the US and had meticulously planned for cell phone. Location data suggests that demonstrators at anti lockdown protests some of whom have been connected with Kovic nineteen cases are often traveling hundreds of miles to events returning to all parts of their states and even crossing into neighbouring ones the data provided by the Progressive Campaign Group. The committee to protect Medicare raises the prospect that the protests will play a role in spreading corona virus to areas which have so far experienced relatively few infections. The anonymous location data was captured from opt in cell phone APPS and data scientists from the firm. Vote Map used it to determine the movements of devices present at protests in late. April and early May in five States Michigan Wisconsin Illinois Colorado and Florida One visualization shows that in Lansing Michigan after thirtieth of April protest in which armed protesters stormed the Capitol building devices which should be present at the protest site had been seen returning to all parts of the state from Detroit to remote towns in the states north in the forty eight hours following a nineteenth April operation gridlock. Protest in Denver devices reached the borders of neighboring states including Wyoming Nebraska Oklahoma New Mexico and Utah following the initial wave of anti locked down protests in April epidemiologists warned. They could lead to a new surge. In cases in North Carolina in late April one of the leaders of the state's anti locked down protests tested positive for Kovic nineteen but said she would attend future rallies. The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the United States House of Representatives has said the State Department Inspector General might have been fired because he would because he was investigating Donald Trump's declaration of an emergency to clear the way for military sales to Saudi Arabia last year trump announced the planned removal of Inspector General.

Apple Declines DOJ Request To Unlock Pensacola Gunman's Phones
"The FBI wants apple to unlock iphones. That belong to the shooter at a Naval Base. In Pensacola Florida last month. Apple is resisting this and now the attorney general's complaining that Apple's not doing enough to help law enforcement in its investigation. This is just the latest in an ongoing fight between the US government and tech companies over how to Balance Privacy Privacy with public safety we've NPR's technology correspondent Shannon bond with US Shannon. Hey David what exactly is the government asking apple to do here well the the FBI has to iphones belong to the gunman in Pensacola who is the Saudi Air Force. Cadet and law enforcement has a court order to see who he was communicating with before the attack but the phones are locked and their contents are encrypted. So the government's asking apple for help but apple has said for a long time it won't unlock devices and break encryption. And that's frustrated frustrated the attorney general. Here's what embar said on Monday. So far apple has not given any substantive assistance. This situation perfectly illustrates straight why it is critical that the public be able to get access to digital evidence once it has obtained a court order based on probable. Cause so so. What exactly is apple's argument for? Not Helping here. Well Apple First of all is rejecting bars characterization in a statement it put out on Monday. said it's already turned over for Gigabytes of information to the government things like I cloud backups and transactional data saying they are helping right the the FBI wants the communications on the phones and Apple says to do that would require building back door. That would compromise the security of all iphones I spoke with Susan Landau a professor of Cybersecurity and policy at Tufts and she says that kind of back door would make it easier for criminals to access personal financial and health information. The risks are that it becomes easier to open anybody. Anybody else's phone. The whole reason apple went to the model of making the data on the phone. More secure. Is that Hackers were taking data off the phone own and then using it for identity theft. And that's pretty much. What apple said on Monday? It said quote. There's no such thing as a back door just for the good guys. This I have to say sounds familiar. I mean aren't these the very issues that came up back in two thousand fifteen after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino California. That's right this is pretty much much very similar conflict and play in the San Bernardino case the people might remember. The government actually sued apple to force it to unlock the phone apple resisted and there was a really tense standoff with the Obama Administration but the government wound up working with a third party contractor to get into the phone and since then apple has reportedly improved encryption and software to make it suffices even more secure and harder to get into now than they used to be then. So how do these larger questions get resolved if they do all right. So first of all experts say that really. We need Congress to weigh in on the law. I spoke with Jim Baker. He was general counsel at the FBI during in the San Bernardino case. And he says there's no easy solution to balance these questions. So what you have then is a situation where the country through its elected so representatives in Congress needs to make a choice. Does it want to give law enforcement more access and create more cybersecurity risk. Or does it want to do you. Something different places could end up is back in court. And if the government gets a court order then the question becomes will apple comply with it. NPR's Shannon Bondra covers technology for US. Thanks much thanks David.

McAfee the device vice to cloud cybersecurity company go to McAfee dot com slash insights from the cyber wire studios data tribe. I'm Dave Bittner with with your cyber wire summary for Tuesday December eleventh two thousand nineteen the city of Pensacola Florida has disconnected most of its networks in response to a cyber attack that hit over the weekend. The attack began early Saturday. The Pensacola News Journal says hours. After Saudi military pilots undergoing training at Pensacola Sakala Naval Air Station murdered three. US sailors and was subsequently shot by local police. The timing of the cyber attack raised speculation that it might be connected to the shooting which according to the New York Times authorities are investigating as a possible terrorist incident but so far no such links have been found. The the motivation behind the cyber attack remains unclear. The city hasn't said for example whether it's received ransom demands the city has said that no personal information appears appears to have been compromised but the investigation is still young and still ongoing. Pensacola is working with the FBI on the case the decryption specialists at MCI soft warned that the criminal provided Rieck ransomware descriptors may damage larger files the decrypted truncates big files and MC soft oft finds that this can result in an recoverable data loss decrypt if you must but better to restore from secure backups and better yet to avoid infection in the first place while we're on the subject of ransomware researchers at security firm Sophos labs report finding an evolved version of snatch ransomware that avoid some antivirus protections by causing windows to reboot in safe mode the US Justice Department late yesterday released its Inspector General's report on the FBI's 2016 Crossfire Hurricane Investigation Crossfire. Hurricane was open to look into allegations of Russian influence in President Trump's campaign as the Washington Post summarizes the report. The I G found that the F. B. I. had grounds to open an investigation but that the investigation itself was marred by serious failures. Those failures are particularly evident. NBC News says in the way the FBI obtained and used Faisal warrants and in its handling an assessment of confidential human sources. Reading through the report. We see that the most prominent confidential human source mentioned or C. H. S. as the I G teaches us to call all such persons is Christopher Steele the British national. Who provided the Kompromat of the steele dossier to various parties including opposition research shop fusion John? GPS The FBI cited information from steel in its application for Vice Award to surveilled Carter page then a foreign policy adviser to the trump campaign. The process of obtaining Faisal warrant requires that the request based on verified information that verification according to the I G was less than fully successful in one instance for example. The bureau submitted a Yahoo News Article in verification of some of steals claims without noting that the article was based on information. Shen from steel with apologies. To Ludwig Wittgenstein this is a little like buying a second copy of a newspaper to confirm the stories. You read in your first copy. The I found that the process of securing the warrant was marred by serious performance failures by the supervisory and non-supervisory agents with responsibility over the Faisal applications. Since page. The I G report says did indeed have contact with Russian intelligence officers but he did so with the knowledge of an unnamed. US Agency he was providing finding information that agency page has said was the CIA in general. The report suggests that the inquiry was handled carelessly and under the spell of the sort of targeted fixation investigative agencies frequently tempted. There's no finding a political bias in the bureau but those disposed to look for it. We'll find indeed indeed have already found plenty of circumstantial evidence of it mostly surrounding eagerness to swallow the steele dossier hook line and sinker. Those dispose to dismiss S. political bias are focusing on the Geez finding that the F. B. I. had grounds to start an investigation the F. B. I.. Immediately accepted the report's recommendations and says has it's moving to strengthen applicable procedures oversight mechanisms application security firm very code recently published the latest update to their state of software. Where security? Report Chris. Why so Paul is? CTO and co-founder at very code and he takes us through their findings customers that scan their software. Th- wear for vulnerabilities on a more frequent basis. End Up fixing vulnerabilities faster so it shows that just a a process change can lead to more secure software so based on what you gathered here in this report. What are your recommendations so the recommendation is to make a cultural change of Not Having a separate security team be the people people that test. Software decide what to fix and then essentially harangue the development team to fix issues not on the development teams schedule or when it's best for them they recommendation is to get Management in the Development Organization to take ownership for this and use I use as evidence things like the state of security report. Which says you're going to have much more secure software actually with less effort it's going to be easier for you to produce more secure software and get that buying the executive team and then push it all the way down to the individual development teams where they will take ownership for securing the software and the security team then becomes a consultant? They become someone that helps this process work. But they're not there in the daily meetings. eatings saying you know. Should we fix this bug anymore. The security team takes ownership of that and gets trained to have some expertise so they actually know What they're doing then they build it into their process and they think about getting better and better over time? was there anything In the report. That was surprising talking to you. A any unexpected results came through. Well we did something which was a little different this time. which was we didn't just look at how often scanning was done? We looked at the pattern of the scanning. So was it steady. Was It on a daily basis. A weekly basis was irregular. Was it something where it it would seem to hap hazard like why are they scanning now and wise a lot of intense gaining over this period or what we call Bercy which was long periods of time were no scanning activity happens that a month or two of intense scanning activity and then a long period of time with none and that kind of showed us that they were scanning only as they got close to the release cycle and We didn't know what to expect from breaking development teams into those three categories steady irregular regular and burst so the recommendation is scan on a steady basis or even in a regular basis but don't go long periods of time without scanning that almost guarantees. Your product is GonNa be less secure kind of reminds me of you know the the frantic cleaning of the house. That takes place before Thanksgiving or when family's coming over and you you when you have done it in a while you start throwing things into closets and you pay for it later absolutely. I think that's a great analogy at the high level. When we say like is software you know getting more secure or less secure? We saw over the ten year period. That we've been doing it. A lot of vulnerabilities that are well known like sequel injection or sort of at the same percentage rate that they were ten years ago we had twenty three percent of APPs. Ten years ago had one or more sequel injection vulnerabilities and here in two thousand nineteen twenty four percent of APPs. Have One more sequel Jacksonville vulnerability so it's crazy. I think that if you look zoom out and look at the big picture not much has changed as far as you know are people fixing these problems or not or or introducing these problems album so we sell a lot of work to do as an industry and we hope that these recommendations that come out of the report where we see what you know. Particular development teams are doing really. Well we can percolate that through the industries so that becomes the average way of doing things and you know everyone gets better not just these teams that have a great process. That's Chris why. So Paul from Vera Code The day now seem somehow incomplete without news that MIS configured cloud database has exposed a great deal a personal information and today unfortunately is complete tech crunch reports that the British penetration company fight us has found another one. It's an AWS WS bucket belonging to a company that tech crunch and fight US declined to name. The company's business is the processing of applications for copies of US birth certificates the exposed. Those database holds more than seven hundred fifty thousand applications. Such applications contain a considerable amount of personally identifiable information including according to Tech crunches which is look at the material the applicants name date of birth current home address email address phone number and historical personal information including past addresses. Names is a family members and the reason for the application such as applying for a passport or researching family history. That's a lot Amazon. said it would notify the unnamed company. WHO's bucket it is that needs to well do something about it today? Of course is patched Tuesday so be on the lookout for updates from Microsoft and Adobe expected expected sometime this afternoon. We'll have notes on the fixes tomorrow and finally it's also prediction season and the cybersecurity industry has been busy making them. We do link to those in our daily news briefing and we encourage those interested to look there for the sectors virtual crystal ball. But we'd be remiss if we didn't mention one outstanding standing and very funny aggregation of twenty twenty four castes. It's in Cyber Scoop by all means give it a look. The publication decided to turn the AI loose on the predictions addictions to Guam them all together and they didn't stop there either. They let the bots do the writing to as the editor says in her disclaimer. The article is all generated. They did through Markov chains and is only super lightly. Edited for clarity. Those Markov chains are rattling better than the cash boxes that encumbered Jacob Marley when he visited Ebeneezer these are scrooge. There most inciteful prediction we thought was prediction number. Eight more security officers will get worse. Tell it brothers and sisters we particularly really like the way the bots attributed quotation to Carl von Clausewitz at the end of every section a riff on his famous dictum. That war is the continuation of politics by other means. A few of our favorites were war is merely the continuation of the evolution in cloud security or war is merely the only way to monetize ing Iot network attacks attacks and more is merely the marketing deployed so bravo cyber scoop and do go read the whole thing.

He's the program director for Public Policy and External Affairs at the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Homeland Security. Also my co host on the caveat podcast Ben. Great to have you back to be here with you Dave interesting article. This is from the verge. something you and I have touched on over on on the caveat podcast but there's some specific here I wanted to dig in for our audience and this has to do with whether or not you have a right to sue facebook and other online in platforms and some legislation. That's being cooked up to address this sort of thing what's going on here so there was some promise In the past several months so there could be deep. Bipartisan Agreement on Federal Data Privacy Legislation. This has been a long running problem. We have this patchwork of state laws and some MM federal regulations that apply to data privacy. But we don't have uniform federal legislation so a couple of key senators The United States Senate Democrat. Maria Cantwell of Washington. A Republican Roger Wicker of Mississippi have been trying to work on a bipartisan solution. To this problem I think there is general. Bipartisan interests the skeleton of such a bill. Okay in terms of you know some of the things we all agree on like giving the FTC Federal Trade Commission Enforcement Authority on data privacy violations but a big source of disagreement is giving consumers users a private right of action against the big tech companies. What does that mean? So this would allow a legal cause of action for any user of any one of these sites or any one of these technological devices to directly. Sue that that company for damages. So oftentimes you'll see legislation. That bans a private right of action where legislation will explicitly say individual. Vigil doesn't have standing to sue on the basis of a violation of the statute i. What Senator Cantwell's proposal would say is that users do have legal standing standing to sue if they are alleging that their data has been compromised by one of these companies? You know so the positives would be having a private right of action gives these attack companies the twitter's and facebooks of the world more of an incentive to protect user data. If they're fearful about getting sued you know they might hire more our compliance officers to make sure that they're complying with this federal statute and the downside. which is something that Senator Wicker and other Republicans have talked about is that this could good lead to a flood of lawsuits and when a similar standard similar private right of action was applied to the telecommunications companies back in the nineties it did lead to a lot of lawsuits hundreds of thousands of them a corollary to that arguments senator wicker's argument which I think has a lot of merit to? It is facebook and twitter. You know they have the resources to respond to lawsuits Bayern. Wealthy Companies Mark Zuckerberg can hire the best lawyers in the country. Jack Dorsey probably could to You know it's the resources are just not going to be a problem for them. Even if they're sued by millions of users there are a bunch bunch of class action lawsuits. That's true for some of these. Smaller companies lawsuits could drive them out of business and You know so this might be a regulation that or or a change in the law that actually would benefit big tech companies at the expense of the smaller guys out there could keep the smaller smaller guys from establishing a foothold in the market. Even exactly exactly because compliance would just be far more expensive and there would constantly constantly be this threat of litigation so that might impact somebody developing a new technology where we are a new interface where they're not entirely clear if there are robust plus data protections maybe the company decides not to go through with that. Because it's too expensive to try to comply with these new federal regulations So the upshot of this you know senator wicker claims as part of this article that he doesn't think this dispute on private right of action is going to derail the entire effort to have a federal data. Privacy Bill I think Senator Cantwell has has also signaled an openness to having legislation. That does not have this private right of action. This is just going to be part of ongoing negotiations There are certainly legitimate positives and negatives or that particular provision Asian. But it's something that's going to have to be worked out in the United States Senate all right those gears turning right absolutely they always are although we don't usually associate the United States the Senate with gears turning grind very slow Anki wrenches and rust on the gears cooling saucer as they say all right.

Much of the Florida wilderness, feels a bit like a jungle that time forgot, but what makes blackwater river and its surrounding state parks of fascinating is it's blend of the old and new. One can canoe series of paddling trails setup by the Park, Rangers or spend the day tubing floating through the comparatively shallow water as you cite deer turkeys, river otters and even alligators. Blackwater river has been a major waterway and center of life for populations in northern Florida for millennia, but no matter how many beach chairs you place on black waters. Pristine white shores and sandbars something about it is unknowable something's litters in the crass, or weights in the water, there's a history that's hard to grab a hold of, but it can still grab a hold of you. Right now. Blair's friends were driving to see Madonna's blond ambition tour in Houston. They were all leaving the state for the first time well, leaving for a state other than Alabama, which was only twenty minutes, west, and that was if you were driving safely glare, by comparison was a pastor's daughter and her Papa preached that Madonna was the devil in cone, bra. Her father had found out about her plans and put his foot down, Blair would not be spending her spring break in a dent of sin. She would be spending it with Mark Mark her dad's favorite little parishioner, Mark their high schools least talented wide receiver Mark. The boy Blair's fathered desperately wanted her to marry. So they're Blair sat in it, too hot car next to. The golf shirt with popped collar in human form. That was Mark. She suggested they go tubing at blackwater but way, she could pretend she was sleeping. Now, she was floating lazily along the river, Marquette joked that her neon swimsuit was going to reflect the sun's rays, and harsh their vives. She put on her sunglasses and tuned him out. She told Mark to cut out feeling the cold splash of water against the sun starch material over suit. Splash fights were juvenile heat chuckled. And she had to resist the urge to hit him. They locked eyes. He was defiant. She was annoyed. He spoke. I telling her to loosen up. She flung water back at it in a strong angry swell rather than get mad. He dove into the water at least now she had some peace and quiet. She luxuriating in the feeling of the warm sun against her face. The sounds of nature were all around her. Lulling her into a sense of contentment. This was the break. She'd been looking for. She did not want to look up. She was done with these games. She was done with Mark finally, slowly lividly. She lifted her head and lowered her sunglasses to the bridge of her nose. Mark was Bobby up and down to the water about ten feet from her labeling his arms wildly screaming for health without hesitation, Blair slid off the tube and dove into the water. She caught up to him circled or arms around his waist and dragged him back over towards the tubes. It was only when she'd hauled him back up against the rubber circle. But she heard his laughs. He told her it was just a little fun. She did hit him this time straight in the shoulder. He said to relax she reminded him that she couldn't relax when someone was pelting with water and pretending to die in front of her. He muttered a half apology in said something about her being killjoy. She told him, he was the devil, and ugly board shorts and turn back towards the sun. Blair slathered skin in suntan lotion, and then settled back down into her own tube. She placed her toes in the water and could feel slight motion below them. She couldn't stifle her own giggle at the strange sensation. She'd been too focused on saving Mark to notice, what kind of fish were down below, whatever aquatic cuties were down there. They'll smooth and slippery against your skin not nibbling her thrashing just investigating this place belong to them after all, what are to the stomach ever swimsuit. This was getting annoying, Blair setup, turning to look at Mark. But he was asleep convincingly. So he had too much of an ego to fake his mouth, hanging open like that drools sucking in and out of his lips. Ever so slightly Blair took offer sunglasses, and looked up a soft breeze blew through the trees Spanish moss wriggled, like snakes reaching down to skim the water. She's slunk back down resting her head on the rubber it was probably more fish. Nothing to worry about the warm heat of the sun in the soothing sounds of the water. Slowly lulled her to sleep. Tug on her ankle woke Blair up nearly yanking off the tube. She pulled her foot free slimy fingers tried to grab for it again. She kicked, but only found air fed up Blair hoisted herself out of the tube, and dove under the water tea colored water had turned almost viscous cloudy vision. She pushed your hands out in front of her and touched something less she but not quite human it slipped away from her. Blair, tried to swim farther out, but she couldn't find any signs of Mark. She was alone. She pulled yourself out of the water back into the tube. He would come back eventually. The air smelled different now like something had died. She hoped someone hadn't poached, one of the poor Gators. Suddenly, Mark grabbed onto the edge of tube and started jostling violently asking if she had seen her. Blair climbed away from him over to the empty tube huffing, the whole way, she had no idea what he was talking about. And resented this poor attempt at getting closer to her. But he was shaky. He told her that they needed to go she pressed him for more. But all he would say, is that something pulled him from his tube, and he'd only just escaped whatever it was. He said had smelled like a dying animal. She checked him for signs of heat exhaustion or dehydration, then reassured him that there was nothing in the water, but fish sand. She dove into prove it to Mark cried out as she hit the water, but she waited and nothing happened treading water in front of the tubes. She actually smiled up at him. But only out of pity. Mark started to relax into the tube. Then Blair climbed back up into the empty one. He was kind of cute when he was scared. Sure his shirts were awful. Any wasn't observant but when he wasn't trying to be cool. He was. Well, cool Blair leaned back, letting the sun hit her body full force. She let her heels dip into the water feeling the slight current. Something sharp bit into her ankle. Blair moved her foot out of the water and onto the tube to examine the damage. She expected to see bite marks, but the wound was made up of small half crescents, like fingernails, she looked Mark who was staring at her. With concern of vulnerability. She didn't understand calmly Blair asked Mark if he had seen someone else in the water Mark grabbed her arm tightly he asked her if she had seen her too. Blair shook him off. She'd been down the herself and she'd been fine. But the wound on her foot was starting to hurt and she didn't like the idea of lake water getting into it, no matter how clean, it's supposedly was, it was still Brown wasn't it? She told him it was time to leave Andy paddled his arms fast through the water taking them to the shore. They left the tubes on the sand. But one of them was starting to deflate. Blair could've sworn that. She saw a bluish gray hand creep towards the sand. But it was gone at the next instant. They collected their things is darting from the softly flowing water to the whistling trees, the wind slow and Blair felt Mark's hand find hers. Something was rising from the depths of the water where their tubes had been only minutes ago. A blanket of dark hair had covered her face at her hands. Looked more like claws. The smell of death was overpowering, enter image seemed to shimmer like ripples, around rocks in moving water. Then the strange woman, moved Blair and Mark took off running the sand. Slowed them down. But Blair could feel her Drennan rising in response. They ducked down, one of the trails hoping was the right one to the parking lot. When their lungs were burning and their feet were to cut up from the various branches along their path. They stopped the dirt was littered with tiny puddles, swiftly disappearing. Remnants of the rain. Mark put his foot in one to clean, some of the dirt and blood from his skin Blair tried to control her breathing searching, the trees scouting ahead to see if they were being followed. She turned back to tell him, she could see the parking lot of pale bloated. Hand was creeping out of the puddle below Mark grabbing hold of his ankle with an iron grip. It pulled and Mark began to sink into the soil Blair sprint to him. Throwing her full weight into trying to pull him back as he sank deeper, the yelled and cried. But no one seemed to hear them. But quicksand only polled harder. Then suddenly, it's Tom. It wasn't pulling but it wouldn't free him. Either Mark com, Blair telling her she could go get help he trusted her. She felt something she couldn't explain. She started to run for the parking lot, something that caused her to turn around one last time, but was why she saw her doom coming in Mark's pain frightened is as the water held him tight making him watch because he could see what she couldn't. She was standing in a puddle. Blackwater river has millennia and more long history. So the roots of a legend of the river ghost are hard to trace.

While heading for the Alabama state line, two of the nine eleven hijackers were taught to fly at Pensacola. Naval air station in Pensacola is abortion clinics have been the target of multiple bombings and shootings. Most notably on Christmas morning in nineteen Eighty-four people believe strongly here, sometimes to the point of murder but belief can also work miracles, if you ask the right people, but how do you know if they're right? Karen knew her daughter had the devil insider. He had clawed at her beautiful Murray for months chipping away at the good that had made her a paragon in their community. When Marie graduated from high school, she had had a bright, future ahead, a scholarship to FSU an engagement ring from childhood sweetheart skip, and a steady job for the summer managing daycare center, but the devil had snuck inside her the night, if her graduation party, she had broken up skip stopped going to a job. And she'd been talking about not even showing up to FSU CARA had given her time to pull her act together but summer was coming to an end and Marie hadn't changed worse. She was defiant unkind dismissive drastic measures had to be taken. Keira had never believed in excess 'isms. At least the Linda, Blair, kind, she knew the devil, did not obey the will of man. Then that God was the only one who could cast out such evil but demons were masters trickery. They could fake miracles make you believe things were solved when they weren't. No, the only way to escape the devil. Let's die carrot could have given up on Marie, right then but God offered the solution to her, but the Brownsville revival, the talked about being able to raise the dead and even brought in a missionary Patrick who had reanimated several people in Mexico if she could get her daughter into their hands for problems would be solved. Patrick had offered to meet her at blackwater river. The church was too hectic of a place for this sort of affair. He said, Keira had agreed. These things were private family business. She told Marie that she understood now but she was ready for her to grow up. She suggested they go to the park, the way they had when she was small to commemorate, there'd been a long pause for a moment. And Kerry had feared the devil would show is face her daughter, again. But Marie just smiled her old smile looking relieved. She asked CARA, if they could have a fun photo shoot when they were the hair she'd wear, her favourite frock, and they could call it late. Graduation photos Murray's favorite dress was a modest but beautifully embroidered white number. She had circled in a dealiest catalog when she was only fifteen but it's still fit. She moved from gangly girl to a young woman who was still ganglion small in her own way. She looked like an angel resplendent in white robes, for the briefest moment CARA, had some downs, but she reminded herself that this was for the best Marie would be here child again, she would be safe. She would be herself. Lee. Drove with the radio blasting and Marie seemed like old cell for the first time in ages. But Karen knew that the devil was desperate to hold on to anyone. They claimed with a smiling face into black heart. They could fool anyone for a moment. She knew the truth, and she wouldn't make it right. They parked and headed down one of the paths towards the river. Murray's hands trailed along the leaves. She looked so young eight and eighteen all at once. Keira letter to a spot by the river or Cypress's hung overhead blocking out the harsh son. It was peaceful hair a good spot for Marie to be reborn. Keira pulled out her phone took some pictures with Marie. They were giggling, joking a family again. Marie later head against the base of a cedar. Tree CARA stroke child's hair and reminded her. That she'd always loved nap in the sunshine, Marie smile and not at her eventually her is. Careless into her even breathing for what felt like ours, but Patrick would be coming soon. And she wanted to do this part alone. She pulled out her kitchen knife, and plunged through the chest ever only child is flu Obin Keira had to keep both hands on the knife has marines body started to spasm. She hadn't hit the heart, a recap begging for her to stop but care, couldn't do that, not yet she had to cleanse daughter's body blood flicked across the front of marines, white dress as CARA dragged the knife down. Keira pulled the knife out and drove it into Murray's body again. And again, and to Marie screams diminished to a wet gurgle. And then she stopped. The knife was still stuck in Burris chest. All the color had drained from her daughter space her mouth on open frozen in a pitiful, scream, carrot, drew. Her hand over daughters is, but they remained open windows to a tortured soul. Now, freed of porio prison. Cara washed her hands in the river, and waited among the Cyprus, Patrick took longer that he said he would CARA carried water over to her daughter's corpse in dabbed at the bloodstains, but it didn't change anything Kabir removed the knife from marine chest. She pulled the two sides of Murray's now torn dress together to preserve her modesty. Patrick arrived in Keira filter body. Heave a sigh relief. Her child would be safe now she didn't expect for him to turn around and throw up on the sand. He apologized saying that he had never been in the presence of a body that had been brutalized like this. Keira hadn't been given instructions on how to do this. She considered drowning Marie, but it seemed Ron to end her in the same waters that would redeemer. She done the best she could. But she kept those thoughts to self has Patrick examine the body Caruana has Patrick stepped away from arri and headed towards the river. He said, a prayer of the water asking God to cleanse it and make it. Holy for their use is is closed. And his breathing was calm. His certain teas soothed CARA, who had to keep yourself from stroking, her daughter's hair. Rubbing her back the way she had when she was small sick. It had been a spiritual. Sickness after all. When he was done. He turned and waited. Keira gently dragged marines body towards the river and the waiting preacher, leaving the soft green grass for the soft white sand, Keira slid Marie into the water head towards the preacher floating among the water lilies and ferns. She bobbed against the holy man slides and if CARA had been looking closely, she would have seen him shiver. As she leaned closer to her little girl CARA caught her own reflection in the strangely still water. She hadn't realized how much blood had caked onto her skin. But now that she saw all that red it almost felt like glue a she needed to remove to be worthy of her daughter and of God's love. When she looked at her daughter, again, something about MAURICE face had changed her face was bloated. But her lips were cracked from a lack of water there, a sickly orange color to a skin. Doubts came back to. But when they lifted marines face out of the water it was as it had been a few moments ago. Deathly pale. But still the face of her daughter. Patrick prayed, fervently over the body camera watched him mutter to himself speaking for God's benefit and not hers. He clutched at Murray's hands and Caravelle strange urge to tear Marie away from him. She looked so frail next to the man's tanned, skin, and large clumsy hands. Ori clutched Kerris heart. Perhaps Patrick was the smiling, face devil, and she'd gotten this whole situation wrong. No. She must adhere to her faith. It was all a test. Marie skin grew more. Stiff a soft blue started to duster cheeks, keta fluttered, and cares drowning out the rest of the sounds. She tried to stay focused on her daughter survival, but she could feel something watching her. Waiting. Kirit turned around unprepared for what she would find. It was Marie, but she was floating in the air swinging with the wind near the top of the Cyprus, her dress was soaked, as it was on earth. But the red had bloomed from her chest, traveling down out, too long, both her outstretched arms and in one long line down her legs. It was cross. She looked at CARA with such hatred that care Affleck. This could not be her daughter, her daughter was just waiting on the other side for them. She couldn't be in the trees. She didn't look like that. She had never looked like that. So hateful cruel wading, Patrick's prayer slow to a stop the thing that had taken on Meri's form vanished before Carrozza is yes, this is what she had hoped for. Marie was reborn. Now, the demon was gone. Free. She looked down, but her daughter hadn't changed. She was still limp, Patrick's arms her eyes, open, frozen, and pleading Patrick smiled at CARA. Softly, pityingly. She couldn't hear his words over the frantic rush of blood in her ears. Her daughter was supposed to come back. He had done this countless times. He could not give up on Marie, but he was already walking away care, a poll, Marie to the shore and grab the knife from the surrounding sand. She left marines, body and headed towards Patrick. He said he pitied her lack of faith. She did not believe enough is, she truly believed in the savior. He would've brought Marie back care filter fingers tighten the knife. She had believed she had always believed. She had. A risk for her daughter because she numerous loved God and would want to return to him. And now the man she had barely met was questioning the intended destination of her immortal. Soul of her daughters immortal soul. He was a false, prophet a charlatan. He had co opted, the word of God for profit and fame. She raised her knife. Something froze, her and her tracks. She felt a heavy weight against the front of her body. But also, you saw was empty air Kerry, tried to move around it, but she couldn't force pushed on her harder and harder until she fell to the ground. The knife dropped out of her hand. She tried to shout, but the words caught in her throat all she could do was watch the preachers back retreating true retreat spiritual on. And abandonment just as she'd abandoned Murray. Both thing with MAURICE face do it over the corpse studying the dead body with curiosity, then but creature met Caras is. And smile.

But if you want a little bit more of an elevated experience, but would really like a private kitchen and bathroom. You can rent a secluded cabin beside the river for one hundred fifty dollars per night. Complete with a fire pit and a wraparound ports its picturesque as long as the river behaves. Jamie was supposed to be working on his book. He was not instead he was playing video games like it was his full-time job will playing video games was his full-time job. But he was supposed to be on sabbatical working on his book about playing video games as a full-time job. He needed to focus, but meant peace and quiet and a very slow internet connection his cabin didn't have WI fi. But it did have a large wraparound porch and two working toilet. He would learn patients waiting for the wifi hotspot to connect. Maybe he would even get some writing done Jamie spent a few hours, just taking in the silence a soft breeze blew through the area. It's settled something inside of Chamie breaking him a calm that he could rarely find. He took a picture of the crimson sky as the sun was swallowed by the river and then headed inside. It was harder at night to entertain himself. He brought a few books, but the settling the house has nerves on alert each bump, or creek made him sit up. He had to remind himself frequently that he was safe and alone. There was no serial killer lurking in the woods he was fine. Jamie felt water in his ears. He woke up to find his pillow case soaked. Maybe this wasn't as nice a place as he thought he searched for leak but couldn't find one it hadn't even rained. He couldn't have sweated them lodge. There was no washing machine. So Jamie hung is soaked. Pillowcase on the shower bar and headed out to the sand. There are a few tourists sitting under umbrellas. He could hear the excited barking of a dog here by otherwise the places, almost deserted hurricane season had that affect. Jamie walked along the shore. He relished the quiet swaying. The leaves the light splashes of the river when he could see some of the sand under the tea colored water Jamie waited in, he stayed on the sandbar taking the view. He moved closer to the shore water started to race around him. Jamie stood. Absolutely. Still waiting for it to pass his legs, burned with the effort of fighting the current in many places. The river was shallow. Wait -able and almost always tranquil, it made no sense. He shivered as a breeze moved through again. And the sun hid behind a canopy of trees, the water slow and Jamie made his way back to shore, Jamie walked back to the comfort of his cabin. Even though hours had passed his pillowcase was still soaked. He moved it to the sink and took a shower, washing off the sand that it stuck to his legs, Jamie dried off and wrapped himself in blankets. His bones felt cold despite the recent record high temperatures darkness came quick. Then Jamie wished he had brought a portable game console with him the buzzing of the skaters echoed in his ears like soft fluttering chainsaws. He tried to lay down and force himself to sleep, but something was dripping onto his face Jamie shifted Ling head at the foot of the bed. He woke to more drips on his face. There was a Brown patch blooming on the ceiling that hadn't been there earlier, he called the manager the cabin who promised to take a look the next morning. Jamie camped out in the living room a blanket covering his face just in case. The knocking startled Jamie awake falling off the couch in the process. He lumbered over to the door and let the manager in when they got to the bedroom. The blooming water stain had been replaced with a white ceiling Jamie could still hear drips from the night before the man didn't hear anything. He joked that Jamie, probably just has some water left in his ears from swimming, Jamie sheepishly apologized and led the man back out. He couldn't stand being the cabin any longer. The fresh night air was a relief. The swish of the water was louder. It has years now but it looked calm and inviting before he was aware he was doing it Jamie was walking into the water. It licked at us heels and toes, caressing, his fingertips as you waited deeper onto the brain white. White. The bottom gave out underneath this feet, and he came to life again. Splashing wildly against the water. He launched his body back towards the safety of the shore and felt that crush of sand underneath his feet. His niece gave out at his head went fully underwater. He pulled his body up fighting the current and push towards the safety of the shore. He collapsed when he arrived coughing up Brown water and bile the water was lapping at his heels now trailing fingers. He moved us feet up closer to the rest of his body. But the water followed him Jamie got to his feet. He heard the water roaring his ears again. He turned ready to scuttle back to his cabin. But when he looked the water was still calm. Inviting. The time alone had gotten to him. He needed to pack belongings and head back to civilization. Skill and guild rankings would be tanked. It was time to return to the games that paid for his livelihood. He didn't see the rush health water coming. Picked his body up off the sand in sent him careening down the waterway Jamie fought to keep his head above water. But the current was stronger than him. He tried to reach for lower hanging branches, but they slid out of his grip leaving trails of blood behind Jamie's arms burned from the cuts and his legs grew tired from constant kicking water slid down his throat choking him golden Brown liquid crawl tortoise lungs. He could feel himself sinking. He was pushed further down. But even then escaped seemed possible with surface was only ten feet away. He could see the sun above, but the tide was too fast, too cruel. It's world. And beat him his body collided with something hard. And then there was nothing left to see or find. Jamie fate and the water went still. In two thousand fourteen brothers David, and Greg Florian were drowned in a road current in blackwater river to witnesses reported that they was swept away at four thirty pm, but the florins bodies weren't discovered until eleven pm and one. Am respectively. They have been held down at the bottom buried by debris and water pressure. The search took longer that -ticipant did because the river itself seem to resist the water levels kept rising, and the currents kept changing and dangerous the searchers as they worked to reclaim the men's bodies something in that river didn't want to let go. And Sakala bay, which blackwater river empties into claims to be the oldest city in America. But truth is a bit tricky as Pensacola was the first multi year European settlement in the continental United States, beginning in fifteen fifty nine but the site was abandoned after hurricane decimated. The area it is a land that resisted so called European civilisation, while acting as a waterway for trade and culture for the Muskogee Choctaw and other southeastern native Americans blackwater river existed, far before white men came to Florida's shores in like much of Florida's ecosystem, there's always been an element of unpredictability to it a land of plenty filled with danger. It's no surprise. Then that the legend. Dwell just beneath the not quite blackwater waiting to rise with the tide and currents. It's certainly worth a visit for the scenery, the paddling and the fresh Florida air, but be careful where you swim in blackwater river Gators are the least of your worries.

Showdown: DOJ vs Apple, Democratic Debate, Longest Rap
"It's Tuesday January fourteenth. Welcome to skim this. We're breaking down the most complex stories of the day and giving you the context on why they matter one month offer a deadly shooting in Pensacola Florida. The Justice Department is still trying to investigate. What happened but there's one thing standing in the way of investigators show far apple? It has not given any substantive assistance then ahead of tonight's Democratic presidential debate. We've got a preview of what will won't be on stage and finally a rapper and Pittsburgh takes free styling to the extreme. We're here to make your evening smarter. Let's skim this. The most complicated hated story of the day is about a standoff between the Justice Department and Apple. Yeah the Tech Company a month after a deadly shooting at a naval base in Florida Attorney General. Oh Bill Bar said apple was making it more difficult for the Justice Department to carry out an investigation. We have asked apple for their help. In unlocking the shooter's phones show far. Apple has not given any substantive assistance. So today we're GONNA get into what exactly happened last month. Why the government and apple are clashing over it and what happens next? Let's get into it by going back to December six overnight a scene we've watched play out in so many American communities what sparked sparked a deadly shooting at a Florida Navy base on Friday morning at six fifty in the morning. Local police got reports of an active shooter at the naval. Air Air Station. In Pensacola Florida. It was the second shooting at a US naval base that week two days earlier two people had been killed at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii by this time. A gunman opened fire in a classroom building on the Pensacola base killing three people and wounding eight others. The gunman was killed by law enforcement on the scene. This was an act of terrorism. The evidence shows that the shooter was motivated by Jihadist Ideology that was ag bill bar again yesterday. The gunman was a member of the Saudi Air Force. Saudi Arabia had been paying for him and hundreds of others to train with the US military. It was part of a special program program that included English classes and pilot training. The government is continuing its investigation into the shooting and the gunman's motives but they say they've reached an impasse. Why I because they can't unlock shooters iphone? Actually his two iphones. The gunman had apparently shot one of his phones during his shootout with the police and his second vote was found damage as well. Investigators were able to cobble the phone back together to try to search them. But that's easier said than done since both both phones were still locked and encrypted and the DOJ says apple won't unlock them. This has been a point of contention between the Justice Department and Apple. That goes back years for a while the DOJ would reach out to apple for help unlocking phones during investigations and apple would often say sure no PROB But then in two thousand fourteen apple changed how it encrypted iphone data so that it couldn't get data from anyone's locked phone even criminal suspects apple. The exact told the government if we let you guys access phones then hackers and foreign governments might get access to and exploit the software. That obviously wouldn't be good for anyone. The Obama Administration bought Apple. Hard on this issue. Remember the shooting in San Bernardino back in two thousand fifteen fourteen people were killed and apple. Refuse to unlock the shooter's phone. Even though the company was under a court order to do it the two sides were locked in a stalemate until finally the Justice Department blinked. They broke into the phone without apple's help. Thanks to some help from a private company but now the Justice Department is once again trying to get apple to give him a hand to be clear. Apple says it has helped out. Even though the company won't unlock the phone it did give investigators access to the gunman's I cloud account data showing his transactions on multiple accounts but Barr says they need more and that this is about more than just one shooting we call on apple and other their technology companies to help us find a solution so that we can better protect the lives of the American people and prevent future attacks so what's next well bar insists that officials really need to get into those phones specifically the DOJ wants to know the shooter shared any info before his attack on encrypted apps like signal. Or what's up. Still Apple is saying they can't give much more info too good guys like the government without compromising attack and making their phones vulnerable to bad guys so it's unclear which side will blink first in the meantime bars two options. He could try the court order thing the last time when he was asked about his option yesterday he declined to comment also like last time bar could decide to go it alone and hire hackers to get into the phones. What's so what's the skin? There are lots of concerns these days about data privacy. You've probably been hearing a lot about it from all your apps. CBS after California passed a big data privacy law that took effect January first. That's a story for another day though. Abbas said it takes users data seriously and and that in order to protect everyone's privacy. They've got to encrypt so much that even they can't break into their own phones but the Justice Department is saying there should be exceptions and like in Criminal Investigations. Apple says exceptions. Make us all more vulnerable for now. It looks like this is the kind of thing that is only likely to get settled in in court. It's twenty twenty Tuesday and to celebrate. We've got a big democratic debate on tap tonight and CNN's ads for it. Make it sound like a superhero movie before the first folk centers were story. You feel the excitement. We're just weeks away. From the Iowa caucuses on February third third polls in Iowa show Joe Biden Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buddha Judge Duke it out for the top spot and there's been some extra drama this week after Warren claim name that Sanders once told her a female presidential candidate couldn't win. Ouch that's almost certain to come up tonight but there are few important and topics that even though they probably won't come up tonight are still worth keeping in mind as you watch the first one has to do with what else money. Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has already spent two hundred million dollars on campaign ads and he might even put a billion dollars of his fortune into the race. That's allowing Bloomberg to run a national campaign pain versus competing in early states and it means Bloomberg doesn't need to raise money how liberating but it also means Bloomberg won't be on stage tonight it since one criteria for qualifying is having more than two hundred thousand individual donors turns out money. Can't buy everything another thing you might not hear in. Tonight's debate in Iowa is whether or not it's caucus should matter so much in the nominating process. Iowa being the first in the nation to vote in the Democratic primaries has been tradition since nineteen seventy two and supporters of that tradition say the smallness of the State allows candidates with less money or name recognition. Listen to still meet voters face to face and maybe build grassroots support but more and more Democrats and even some candidates are saying Iowa voters don't necessarily reflect the country Democrats are running to lead Iowa's population is more than ninety percent white. That's a way bigger share than the US as a whole which is sixty sixty percent white and election day battleground states. Like Florida and Arizona are even more diverse here was former twenty. Twenty Democratic candidate Hooghly on Castro Astro on IOWA'S CBS TV affiliate last year. We can't say two black women. Oh thank you thank you. You're the ones that are powering. Victories in places he's like Alabama and in two thousand eighteen and then turn around and start our nominating contest in the two states. That have barely any black people in them. I mean that doesn't awesome accent. We should say the two states Castro reference. There are Iowa and New Hampshire which is even less diverse than Iowa and with candidates of color like Kamla Harris and cory booker dropping out of the race before anyone's cast a ballot questions about weather Iowa deserves its number one spot are likely to keep coming up. Even if they're left out tonight's debate a third thing you might not here tonight has to do with polling see. In addition to having enough donors the the other criteria for making tonight's debate was reaching a certain threshold of support in a set number of national or early state polls but political analysts and some other twenty. Twenty candidates eh are complaining that there haven't been enough polls period take entrepreneur Andrew Yang who narrowly missed the cut for tonight's debate Yang says he may have qualified if there'd been more polls and he's calling for the Democratic Party sponsor its own polls rather than relying on media companies to fill in the gaps. Here Harry was on Iowa's PBS affiliate earlier this month after a more than forty day period. In which no qualifying Coles came out of Iowa of there aren't poles in the period. Then I would suggest that is not an appropriate standard to hold campaigns to because how can you actually meet a threshold if there are no polls. Tonight's debate begins at nine PM.

Dr Paul I'm doing doing good and all set to go and try to sort out Truth from fiction and there's a lot of fiction out there a lot of fake news but I think car viewers generally understand. There's a lot of fake news and I hope we helped to sorted out and bring them some things. That are a lot more accurate but it looks like will be busy for a while because it's it's constant it's epidemic and and it's not It's just not one side. I think think it's bipartisan. You know and and to sort all this out and I think about the deep state and everything it can get very fusing but WanNa talk about the electronic Colonel Air Force pilot from From Saudi Arabia who went through the vetting process but then he ended y killing three people and wounding wounding eight others pensacola and they said well. We've vetted them and he got by. I can't believe it. What did they fail but our government has decided that they should put that on? Hold for a little bit and study it and maybe reform it and have a better vetting process but we do this for hundreds of people on this train. These people and as of course reminds me of another other significant events of training air force pilots from Saudi Arabia before nine eleven and our government refusing to listen to the whistle blowers that were really trying to tell the truth. There were a couple and They that was a true whistleblower but The use of the word whistle blower now is so so distorted. There's a another job for us to sort it out. But but but anyway it was that he was vetted and he said he was. Okay and I keep thinking the whole whole process of vetting and knowing who's coming and going Because we have to protect our liberties and that's why we go around the world to protect our Constitution our liberties of course. What did we get? We get the Patriot Act and now the super patriot. Act is coming at the at the same time they're going to have Facial so Images of everybody and yet one single person like this You'd think they might have a little warning about it. But the the the best thing I can think they can do is trying to sort out these five hundred. You know human capacity is that there's no way they're going to know everything about everybody that comes in but why are we training these people. Other than fact they blend in to the deep stay and into the Empire to do some of our workforce and and that's the reason that we're training so many policies whole idea that we can direct Pity and still maintain the empire. I have my doubts. I think I think the consequence will become very evident of the policies. ABC's that we have and just like in places like Afghanistan. A huge problem. Is that the soldiers we train. There are shooting at their own soldiers and shooting at Americans. That's more of the talk of killing the issue. Betting is important. Nothing because as you point out it's really it is impossible to that a because it's government doing it and they don't the very good job of it because it's political we're not bringing Saudi pilots always here because we're short of pilots free over here because it's political and so this Guy Lieutenant Mohammed. Al Shahrani he came over here. The Pentagon said Hey look to the whole routine. We ran his name through the database. We checked checking for substance abuse. He was given a physical and psychological examination. Everything seemed fine. No problem home what they missed. According to The Wall Street Journal on December Eleventh. They missed a little thing since two thousand fifteen. He was putting posting extremists things on twitter so they missed that little he. He wasn't smoking pot but he was. He was posting extremists. His militancy they say dates back to two thousand fifteen raises the questions about the vetting but I think it also more importantly brings in the issue politics versus actual security. It think of how many lives have been ruined by people posting things on the Internet at the Cultural Marxism in the attack on these individuals. They massive but here. We're could be important and they're supposed to to be doing it that they don't they don't accomplish it but many American lives are destroyed. So the whole thing is it's hard to believe Steve that They do this intentionally to destroy. Americans American Liberty Some people think it's deliberate because they just want chaos in this country sometimes it's just pure stupidity and sometimes it's just you know part of a philosophy. You know there are some of these people if you have to give credit. They really believe in some of these socialism and Marxism and you use force because they endorse a use of force so for them to do this and endorse. This is not that contradictory predictor lead to To to to what they pretend to be but The American the American people. I think are gullible if they believe that you can run this empire trained pilots in this country and even when they're warned like they were a nine eleven and just ignore the whole thing that they can get away with this and ah everything will be okay and that's because it is political days before the shooting. He hosted dinner parties with a bunch of Saudis watching mass murderer videos. You know with cheering He had also been involved in watching and posting about some bin Laden things so obviously they're not missing it because they missed the boat on the whole whole thing and even after the attack is Defense Secretary. espy said quote. No I can't say it's terrorism at this time this is the US government that calls everything that the bad guys quote unquote due terrorism. At the drop of a hat. You know which bombs into Syria because of the terrorist attack in Douma that we now know was ally everything's he's terrorism except when our allies do it you know the one complaint. I've had over the years on. This is when something happens especially after nine eleven nobody asked what is the moated loaded every murder that occurs the please the detectives on August around. We have to have a motive. But they don't do that one has Some of our Foreign Intervention And somebody strikes back. Nobody wonder why they do these kind of things and usually it's probably a multiple number of different things but the motive motive generally is striking back and they have a reason for it but that they use it conveniently when they want to undermine the liberties of Americans. Oh this looks like terrorism. You know and We're we're going to deal with this way but at other times. Oh no this is not terrorism. Because they don't want to ask that a question because it will reveal our failures whether there are our efficiency of running our bureaucracy and our military but our failure of our policies. So that's when they they have to say oh no. This couldn't be no shortcomings of our system. We we have the CIA will protect we have the FBI and they'll investigate and they'll oh surely protect us and I think that's one of the great fallacies about The notion that the purpose of government is to make a safe and secure which sounds awfully luring? Who doesn't want to be safe and secure but we talked so much about the failure of government? They don't accomplish what they're supposed to. Why depend on them? One most important thing and that is our safety and our security and As I often point out it isn't a policeman standing outside our house that makes us safe in. Our House is probably more of the Second Amendment than anything else that provides our safety and security and of course the FBI can protect us because they're too busy charted investigators bogus August Russia gate thing. How many officers in FBI agents were out there on this but the other thing that they will never talk about it? Okay this lieutenant. al-Shamrani went haywire. Shot a bunch of people on the US military base. How coincidental the fact that we just started sending US troops back to Saudi Arabia? Apia actually dug up the old Wolfowitz quote. Because I think it's worth reading again. I think we should put it up because the US even the neo cons recognized in the early two two thousand with a foolish idea was to have US troops based in Saudi Arabia. If we have that quote. Let's put it up. Here's Wolfowitz in an interview in Vanity Fair in two thousand and three there are a lot of things different now and one that has gone by almost unnoticed but it's huge is that by complete mutual agreement between the US and Saudi government. We have we can now remove almost all of our forces from Saudi Arabia that presence there over the last twelve years has it's been enormous difficulty for friendly government. It's been a huge recruiting device for al Qaeda. And then he goes on to talk about how important it is to get our troops data. This is Paul Wolfowitz. You know the the author of a law of these. He understood it. The trump administration of course doesn't just completely over there. Hey let's put some troops back in there there. That seems like a great idea. Yeah I guess. This shows a our shortcoming because Didn't we announce this danger a couple of weeks ago when they talked about troops in there. But I don't think the president was listening. I don't think it's fit into their scenario so they didn't pay any attention so they repeated it and The connection here. Fortunately it was nothing compared to the severity of the nine eleven attacks but the principle is the same and I've always argued that until until we we leave that area. We're always going to be under threat. So if if the term terrorism was limited to something maybe retaliation for our foreign policy is is going to happen. In the weaker we get financially and militarily the more the attacks going to occur and this this is a typical thing and it's going to be more difficult recalled as time goes on because this think the popularity of the Saudis right now has dwindled a whole lot. Compared take nine eleven. They had special treatment. They've been getting special treatment and even We have backed away from being there. Allies in the Yemen war. More so It is it is changing conditions. Conditions are different and I think I think that is a very good but boy back in nine at eleven I remember I remember it so clearly in one little thing. I want to refresh people's memory on. Is You know when this happened. I think most people heard the story. There was FBI agent that realized there was a pilot training just to land airplanes and Just to take them off I guess but not the land. Yeah and low and behold And he he tried to go up the bureaucratic ladder and explain it. They wouldn't listen. They listen they wouldn't listen the day. The after nine eleven occurred the the individual in charge of this was replaced in a new person was put in because they figure this is going to come up again. The person warned against it so he went back to them and and the new guys why. I can't believe that if this this whole mess of never occurred which they caught him off guard but they did report information never went up the ladder the CIA and FBI covered it up and nobody really we Look look look that. He could have been preventable. Foreign Policy is never talked about. But what about even when we get all four long in on this. This small incident points on the process doesn't work in you know what they're doing. They put a hold on this vetting process. You're they're not going to say we're GONNA stop training hundreds and hundreds of pilot. We're going to put a hold on and we're going to reform the vetting process but we don't think there's anything wrong. Well I'll tell you what I think. There's a lot wrong and I. I don't think it serves our interest. It doesn't serve the interests of the American people and it doesn't serve the purpose of more liberty Birdie and peace in the world as you pointed out the US has given special treatment to the Saudis for a long time longer than we'll even mention here but let's look at a couple of them fifteen fifteen of the nineteen hijackers were Saudi nationals. Boom we invest we invade Afghanistan. That makes a Lotta sense right. What about the bin Ladens? You have a personal story about that. Have Been Lonzo whisked away on airplane on nine eleven while You were stuck in Baltimore airplane. Remember that well. He was very personal for me. I waited and waited and fought the crowds thousand. Yeah I heard about an hour after nine. Eleven the whole family. Oh but the family weren't all guilty. Maybe one person might be guilty. But all bin Laden's shovel shot shot of all off about the Saudi. Everybody you were waiting. We'll look at Yemen. One of the greatest humanitarian crimes in history. Nobody wants to talk about with a few exceptions on Capitol L. Hill killing of the journalist. Kashogi cover that up. Cover that up and now even now. This shooter patterned after pattern. Maybe trump and say well. Hey they by our weapons about what. What is what is the value of and the other thing to talk about that you talk about a lot and you started out talking about? This is the motive. What's the motive of this? It is not to excuse this second lieutenant for what he did to listen to what his beef was. He said he didn't like the way Muslims were being treated by the US worldwide. Why doesn't justify an attack or terrorism? Or what he did. But if you're smart if you're ascension being you'd stop back sit back and say Gosh. We have killed a lot of Muslim MM civilians. We've blown up a lot of wedding parties. We've been a part of the Yemen genocide We're not we're not a fair dealer in the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Look what happened in Iraq. Now with the F- Ghanistan papers look. How many so? Maybe he's got a point even if he's going about it in reprehensible way maybe we need to look get off foreign policy and I think the quota Volvo is key he acknowledged he knew he was speaking the truth thin but it didn't change policy maybe for a while. But we're back doing again. We're back putting troops on the Holy Land Islamic Holy Land and There will be the resentment. Yeah in general Charles Hooper. He's the guy in charge of these exchange programs. He doesn't get it. Nobody in government gets it he says. Hey these programs are of exceptional value to. US national security you know he said these foreign students are exposed to our values our culture in our people. And that's kind of you know the sickness of American exceptionalism. All you have to do is take him to McDonalds and they're going to give up their views and they're gonNA come embrace us and be just like us because the rest of the world is dying to be just like us. Uh Excuse me one point you know we go to spread democracy. Well we kill all these people and demand this and start these wars spreading spreading democracy but they never addressed the subject that the founders detested democracy. They didn't like the word they didn't like it the way it work and and it was very very biased against personal liberty so But we still have to spread democracy and we'll save the world. You know exactly what this shows that you can despise despise these kind of terrorist acts. You can despise this this guy killing Americans on base but you can also despise. US foreign policy that creates the conditions where people can be radicalized. You know we've put ourselves in the shoes of the people in the Middle East for a while and look at how they've been treated looking out of their families have been destroyed by US US wars of aggression for the past twenty years It doesn't mean we excuse it but we can understand it so real American patriots half to talk about if we want security vetting is not gonNa do it. It's going to have to be looking at at the cause and the causes our political relations with places like Saudi Arabia and elsewhere and and our foreign policy of interventionism in creating a world wide empire until we solve those two issues. We can vet until the cows come home. We're not going to be any safer on the contrary very good. You know the WanNa bring up that subject again about what was happening with that Individual the FBI agent trying trying to report and T- and and worn about nine nine eleven the individuals that was appointed to be in charge of this right. After nine. Eleven you know. Express tremendous surprise sounded authentic. He's a while this is big stuff. This whole mess wouldn't have happened but anyway He toned that down in State Service and in toed the line and he retired in two thousand eight he won the President's Award for Meritorious Service so he was appointed under Bush and he was discharged or retired underbush. So say instead of really digging into this and figuring out how how how desperately bad our policies are they reward you with fancy fancy awards and said all is good and that is why It'd be nice to have a lot more people seeking the truth because that is what is necessary and it looks like the truth is not going to come from our media. It's not gonNA come from. Our government is not going to come from the universities. It's GonNa come in a in a small way by small members of grew small groups looking for the truth. That always happened even when there wasn't an Internet but at least today the Internet is still available to organizing people and trying to develop reputation that the truth can be revealed in certain areas. And they're out there. I mean there's there's quite a few groups that are trying to tell the truth that job we we have the job. All of us have is trying to sort out who's lying who's spinning it and for whose benefit and that to me would solve a lot of problems then then we talk seriously about what the foreign policy should be all about. What kind of monetary policy? But you have to know the truth and you have to get you have to get rid of the deep state because right now the deep state is still very very powerful and they have they have control of this and although a lot of lip service has been given to the deep state eight and maybe they've labeled out it but believe me it's still very much in charge. Want to thank everybody for tuning in today to liberty report. Please come back soon.

Give us a little bit about you. How what would you love the listeners to know about you? Nobody necessarily listeners about meeting, but, you know, talking about bigger things that are going on in the world that, you know, are extremely important for us to become aware of and just to become aware of ourselves versus Moore. Yes. Yeah. And this is the exact reason I wanted to have you on the hearts, only because like you just even you speak at a different level, and it's really fun and engaging to listen to. And so what is on the forefront for you right now? Like what do you really care about? You said let's talk about some bigger things. Yes. Oh. Jeers. No. I feel that. Man, everything. I mean is the question solidly? What do I care about? Yeah. Man, everything I think everything matters. I think you know, every detail matters. It really does. I it's everything's by racial man's really. We always say, oh, it doesn't matter like, what it really does. Then you have to think about how things affect you can see it. Or you can't, you know, everything is, is, is constantly swarming around us energy. Everything is energy, and so on have to be conscious of what, what type of energy, it is that we are pumping out there and do you know the motherhood. You seem pretty tapped into energy and you mentioned kind of started for you at the age of seven when you had your first reading your first chart reading can you share that story with us, a little bit about how you got into being able to understand energy and vibration, a have to say my mother, and I have to say that, that I truly believe that we, we start we are. I think it's around like the six months of just Jae shin that you that I it said that your soul is born in into the, of the baby or the. His. I truly believe that once that soul enters into, you know. Fetus. Your experience truly starts to formulate. Yeah. And you were taking on the energy of your mother, and, and that lineage of, of whatever that was all the great whispered also all the pain. And so these are these are the types of things that I've started I or going, you go, you just go well, real quick. 'cause this is stuff that people haven't heard, or they may be having been exposed to yet, and so you're people get it, they're going to understand you when they hear you. So just keep wrapping girl, keep going. I truly believe that I express things divest of my village tonight and I hope that it reaches them on, on a heartfelt level. Yes, she do. So, yeah. It's hard to say if that's, that's where it starts. And then, and so I drink one experience when I was seven because that's sort of like understanding your purpose, almost what is your chart tell you, I don't know, a lot of people again, haven't really dipped into asteroid readings yet. I think you know, it's, it's worth taking a look for everybody because a lot of us lack direction, whether we would like to admit. Very real pedantic. And so it's time to explore yourself get out there and dance. That's in oh, one of my favorite things just dance. And as life as you know, is a dance. Yet to step to the beat. Yeah. And so share what you some of what Hugh know about astrology and what's available to people in opening their minds and hearts to it. Oh. It's how we relate to ourselves. However, late to begin numbers ital- relate to everything. There's, there's something about finding the alignment within yourself in which to see, like how you should be balancing, that makes sense what you should focusing on what your strengths are, you know, and using your weaknesses as you know, as tools to get stronger. You know what I mean, I have I think I wrote this in questionnaire, but I much might have gotten a race time. I renew one but, but I look at blockages and I and I take the to take the word and I pick it apart lay blockage. And I take the blocks and use those as building blocks to create, you know, my structure or whatever it is. My aim is. Yeah. Yeah. So I love. I often say, kind of like those breakdowns lead to breakthroughs, it's a little bit more. You know what I mean? Like you can take that and build something of it or pull out the silver lining, or the gem that there is to be learned. So that, you know, it's been coming up pretty strong lately, as the universal teach you the lesson until you learn it. Absolutely. Say about. Well, yeah. You know, I was just exploring the that thought for myself, and I was having a conversation with one of my raking masters in spiritual guides. And we he was talking. I was like sharing with him. I, I recently, you don't day. Tell us it said so much that the our mission here on earth. Like when we incarnation is to learn unconditional love. And that's when you truly kind of, like, don't need to cycle back. Right. Well, I was frustrated I was saying I understand unconditional love or, like I have the gratitude or joy, and I was like, I feel like my lesson is always about patients. I think that's my soul's journey. I feel that. Oh, that for like you. So I woke up this week a bit too high, my practices patients and that's really what it is. What do you think about that? Like, do you. If you look for yourself like, what would you say is your soul's journey? Wow. That. Patient. Okay. I so relate with that I- patient is man. What a concept like you mean, a have to wait people. We'll mistake people mistake patients with waiting they're not in their changeable. They're not, you know. No. Nice. That you are in charge, and you are the captain of this ship. So you have to be patient with yourself to get your destination. And that's all that is if you're waiting that means you're stopping, and you're, and you're, you're at a halt, you know. Used to be waiting for shit. I mean I I'm sorry, I, I don't know if there's goodness. No, you're good. Okay. So. Yeah, that's how I see it. I guess wall. And that's a that's an incredible distinction for any of the listeners to walk away. With is the difference between, you know, patients and weeding. Right. 'cause there's a difference there between, like 'cause the waiting is often like voiding, avoiding action, voiding, the courage, and you know that expansion and exploration. And you know, in your journey of knowing that difference in practicing patients and everything what sort of things have you had to give up in order to have the life you have. Oh girl, read I wrote. Lover you listeners. I remember it. The need to be right. Yes. Sandwich on the people in the back for the people in the back the need to be right. I had to give that up. And so do every single one of you. We all have to share that because until we share that we're never going to understand one another whenever going to connect with one another. We have to stop being right about it. Right about what tell us about that journey because I don't think we all get it all the time. Like, what would it means by being right? Right. Is totally ego. Driven. When you find yourself in situations where, you know, in your past, you would have judged, you find yourself now at a point in your life where you're neutral about a situation and that means you're practicing compassion. That means you reached a level of weariness, that is starting to actually heal the world. Oh. Keep going. But starts with you. Is that simple? I mean I wish I could create a million jillion different things because I have solution for literally every problem, I've ever heard of. But is it physically possible for me to do that? No. And I've heard on your podcast. We talk about the same thing we all have in common. No, but I'm helping somebody else, and they're helping to other people, and those people are helping, you know, a hundred people, you know, on growing, and you have to realize that, that's what life is growth. Yes. Girl pre. So beautiful. And it, it was it was so multidimensional that answer. So thank you for that. Just thank you for sharing. And you know, I love asking this question. I think it ties right in is what do you see is possible, and available if everyone were to live their heart unleashed? Like a big foot and party man. Already. What do you mean? Like magin just everybody buddy. Just happy. Why is, you know, I have looked at the statistics lately, for depression, but damn we are headed towards a complete Topi and future. And people are so happy with distractions, distractions, selves, like one of my tag lines or who identify as sole crusader, like I'm writing for your soul. He like there's nothing like feeling fully express those nothing like living in joy and happiness. And there's nothing like it. Why would you be here? If you didn't want experience that. I mean. Gosh, yes. And I totally want to acknowledge you because you did say that about yourself like that, Hugh will ride or die to the depths of tips for your people. And so tell us like, what sort of work do you do? Is there coaching involved in energetics, and, like spirituality, Trollope? How do you marry what you do? What's your flavor? Oh, what's my flavor? My flavor is I have a lot of labor. I play. I can say and. So I'm a lot of fun to get with, like and, and just have a jam session. I'm a lot of fun to have a conversation with, like that is so fulfilling to be able to have a conversation with somebody and open up something myself in somebody else that wasn't there before aiding awareness, creating, you know, pathways, discoveries or you know, whatever it is, like just creating an positive note. And you can't really fully do that until you brace the darkness that, you know, you experience in life. Oh, isn't that has? That message is coming on strong right now for whatever reason I can tell the collective is, they're getting more present to exposing shadow work. I can just see it. It's everywhere. We've been glamorizing like this free lifestyle. Right. This coaching transformation ascension, all of it like the development and expansion. We make it look like really good. But we hardly ever show that shadow work the show work is the work. Everything that's the only work because once you're out of the shadows. You're pretty. Yeah. Yeah. You know what to do you know into. Sorry, I got to excited about that. We both took a hard pas there that will, you know, like, wait a minute. I'll just wait. So one thing I wanted to ask about was one of the things that you do being tarot card reading. Oh my goodness. Okay. There's a stigma I wanna dress this because the. And there are some people that I come to, and I'm like, and their friends friends, and I'm like, hey, Madurai reading for, you know, no, no, no. I'm not doing any of that stuff. And I'm like. What the hell happened? Like, why, why do you think this way about? About tarot cards and things like that. I think people associate with, like, witchery your something against their religion or, you know, but it's not that at all, are you willing to display us an example? Absolutely. Mom. It's out that at all. There's a million different kinds of dex the kinds of decks, that I carry I have one called the line strategy journey if anybody's interested. It's I love it. These are all produced by women illustrations, and the cars himselves and basically, I use my very carefully. I take my time with them. See but feels. Right. And they'll have the messages that I feel you know, are needed. So, so, yeah, that's, that's all I can say about that. The messages are absolutely harmless. They have nothing to do with, like against your religion or something. But it's allowing your energy to cultivate, a message that you just need to hear more clear. So that's no. So I wanted to let the audience know that you're willing to do a car like explain a card or pull one for me so that they can get an example to hear one an example of one is that something you're interested in doing. Gosh. Wonderful. So excuse me. I'm gonna set my seat back. So question clarity question, if you pull the card, do you think it will be for me, or would the readers benefit from hearing it, or would we pull it for different energetic source? We are pulling some cards for the month of June and Jimmy, this win carnage poll of you, when you feel do what you feel. Do onto three. That's okay. Yes. Okay. So usually all this shuffle. The cards until one pops out. Everybody does it differently this way. I feel again a mess is just pops out at you. Shuffle. My deck like that, and draw cards that way. Oh, yeah. But I wanted to say that three cards. I'm going to be pulling the how they differentiate. I car that I've whole, we will address. It's, it's sort of like a synopsis of the past. It's taking a look at the groundwork. That's extremely important to take a look at in order to, you know move forward. There's an old proverb at the new American. It's in order to know where you're going, you have to know where he came from. So I love that. Let's see. Okay. The first car that we pulled is Queen of Pensacola. Some of the read the message and then usually I elaborate a story once the cards are pulled so. The key words are productivity for Tilleke while success nurturing home happiness and prosperity. The beautiful Queen pentecostals is a wonderful nurturing cards poll. She is practical motherly, secure and wise this card is strongly related to family infertility and almost always features a rabbit in some aspect of the card, her feminine energy is strong, but in a more comforting nurturing way and you find with the Queen of swords or ones where the Queen of lawns represents all that is mysterious and seductive and dark about some energy, the Queen of pencils represents the strong dependable nurturing aspects of women. Kinds. Pause here for just a minute. I'm gonna take us water because it's. You are seeking straight to my song. Oh my. Mojo buys. I mean seriously. Because that's. I'm not talking about last week. I'm not talking about last year. I'm talking about our ancestors. Like I'm talking about. Like I was talking about before the, the lineage which carry. Okay. Here we go. When you have a reading where the Queen pentacle appeared alongside other penpal cards. So I guess we will see if we pull any after this. That is a strong indication of the cards are speaking of material or financial matters. Even if the inquiry is about love or relationships, for example, if you see this Queen and six pentacle 's the deck, maybe indicating that female figure in your life and offer dependable financial advice or assistance in conjunction with a higher offense. This card may indicate that organization or community is assuming mothering role in your life. If the Queen cards were in body, those friends, but you went to for advice, the Queen of pentecostals would invite you to her, beautiful plant built kitchen for homemade bread and soothing herbal tea. Whereas the clean up woman would want you would meet you at a swing continually lit bar for a chat over smokey scotch or a luscious glass of red one also may represent a very positive female ally in your life. Someone compassionate, and wise you can help through a rough time and probably won't poor tequila shots. So though these often represent other people in your life, the card may indicate that you must embody, the qualities of this Queen compassion. Generosity open to others. This Queen often means there is a down to earth, answer to a problem, you're pondering or she may be trying to bring your focus back toward your home, life and family. There's a societas numbers is particularly Jack has associated plans as well. And also birthdays, the numbers are sixty six twelve and three and the associated birthdays are January force January, eleven and so that's like, the logical connection NBA associated trans are spearmint marshmallow conference lilac was, oh, my gosh. I need to take a bath in that. Louise. Can you listen? That sounds lovely. So, so. Wow. That that was a maze. Ing, I, I feel I feel like the energy of just woman. A man like how far back could we go? And how can be liberate the woman. As I over about to get the other side of this conversation along. Yeah. Yeah. And that's alternate Lee. That's I am a complete advocate for the balance of masculine feminine. And that's truly part of my mission. Come. Now, people understand that concept yet or or they don't relate to it yet. But yeah, that's, that's a met, honestly, like it's realizing that, you know, we've been oppressing are women far too long, and, and you have to liberate the woman, and she is the natural born leader. She is the creator. She is the mother and we have to support that. Yeah. Ios Jackson that card. You know what you, you did a old boy like about to go in on them. Thank you for that. Thank you for the card, and for your clarification of it, your perspective of it, and I could not agree more love, though, what you were saying about liberate the woman, I think that she's been trying to break free at the most recent years. And now it's like there's just this unleashing time. And this rising. Yeah. What is the next sequences in release? So if that was passed. What's the second sequence? A second sequence or in card is is present. It's taking a look at where you are currently. Yes. So I'll just leave it at that. So see, we have the four of swords. Yes. Ma'am. He words are in a reflection planning convalescence rest recovery. Solid foundations solid foundations. Solitude self care unbalanced. Okay time to sit my teeth. You have to get into it girl. These are spot Hon right now. I don't know. I can't wait to hear what the listeners like how reads for them, but this is quite direct. I am feeling directed. Yes, I'm and Yep. Yep. Keep it common shift to because. Yes. Okay. Here we go. Okay to four of swords depicts a period of rest after a time of challenge. I don't know the rest of the listeners can relate. But. The past couple of years. Have been extremely. Impactful? Difficult as all hell. Yes, I'm trial time trial and. Damn breakdown. Breakthroughs are like like you're saying, yes, that they are insurmountable. Like it's each one is just like yeah. This is living. Here we go. Okay. So speaking to challenge, now, it is time to stay silence. And inactive that kind of plays into what you were talking about with patients, right? Replenish, your strength, and spend time in solitude and contemplation the four of swords asks you put down your sword for time. There will be battles in the future. But you must take time to mend sharpen and recover. Now, may not be the best time to make decisions after time of rest, the path four will become clear, this card often suggests the need for seclusion create space to think dream. And he'll while taking him break in the thoughts and demands of others this usually depicts the sleeping night in the church. So the astray sometimes comments on how she oh straights since she, she said, she felt drawn to the figure of sleeping lion. An animal that hunts fiercely and then rest intensely the flowers, I love that. I love that hunts fiercely in rest intensely flowers blooming around the line. Remind us that rest is. Necessary for growth in a reading card usually represents the parent rather than someone in their life. So that's you or me. And the present position this car can indicate that it is time. This is this isn't a present decision, which is crazy pay enough. Everybody. The president is edition. This card can indicate that it is time to take a break to stop working on a certain project or to lay aside a grievance in the future position, the deck. Maybe indicating that despite the turmoil that present a calm time lies ahead. Thank goodness combined temperance. So we'll see what are third parties. The cars may be indicating that aren't that aren't are through. Relax Asian is needed to bring life into balance and help you achieve your best. So. Wow. I say that speaks street to me, and I think that many of us who you know, whether your parent or an entrepreneur or someone in the night if I like we all, try to think that we should just go go go go go, and that we're not allowed to rest, because this world exist in such instant, gratification, that, like we don't allot ourselves rest recovery, like celebration, acknowledgement, and just like, general appreciation. So that spoke a lot to me. Yes. And there's a last note on there about it. And it was about if it's a romance. Reading can also indicate that it is literally time to take a break from relationship as become a battleground. So how many of those do we have there? 'cause he family be romantic, like saying anything about all really ships. Yeah, it's it's time to get a little more chill about things and stopping. So. Right. Nine right. I like how it said, you can put your sword down like just rest, like it's okay. Exactly. How are you gonna have the strengths if the real fight? Osu slope on bullshit. Amen. Oh my gosh. Okay. I just wanted to read the correspondences numbers or forty eight twelve three. Aided birthdays are July nine to July fourteen. And the associated plants are relying Bulgarian in town mile Maroni's. All right. That's beautiful. So now where are we moving into future? We are moving into guests. Genius. We are. Okay, man. That is just so much to be taking into. I'm loving every minute. I imagine the listeners are too. I'm going to speak for us as a whole. I'm enjoying this. You ready? We've got the two of cups. The key words are partnership happiness, romance is this partner friendship mutual understanding? Amen. That sounds like a really bright future. And these three car. I'll tell you what they go together. And they all are like past present and future themed, if you think about the path of Sestri, the present it literally that card was made for the present decision and we. Regatta lock. And then we have the two cooks. About some serious prosperity. We go to cups is a lovely card that shows the strength and duty. They can be created when two individuals unite balance, respect and harmony. That's seven fades. But folks, indicates relationships based on the traction, and the supportive and heartfelt exchange of genuine emotion, and the specked the two of cups can refer to marriage halls and engagements as well as business partnerships or deep friendships is reflection of commitment between two individuals who have chosen to be allies in the world and some cases, this may even indicate a strong bond with an animal the two of cups represents love that is nurturing creative, clearly focused inspirational, and equally perform in reading this is often of beautiful start to a new romance in. Jill experience. Understanding harmony, and deep love between two souls, often it's card speaks of reconciliations and new opportunities to bond repair or deepen existing relationships in a business or material. Reading this indicates that partnership could be successful for important at this time, especially when seen penta goals, I don't think we know wait. We did. Yes. Oh my gosh. Everything's aligned right now, we are first card, which was passed, and so I like how this takes like a cycle goal. Flow. Our first card was Queen pentacle 's okay snap. Okay. We're on point today. Now, we are flowing. It is okay. Oh my goodness. So we were at this specially when seen with pentecostals there may be someone in your fear or soon entering your life with whom you can build a significant relationship of trust, and mutual benefits. This car indicates good results from operation and teamwork. In general, we have a little bit more. This is this is, you know, can't oh give it to us. Change the future. We have to go all. Okay. So despite the focus on partnerships between two individuals to cubs. Maybe indicating that there is internal work to be done to make these kinds of relationships available to you. Yes. Yes. That's what we were talking about shadow worse cow to be happening. You have to go through it. And go around it. It's going to be right. There say that show all the time to girl like you can't be you can't build a bridge over you kick it around. You gotta go bam. Fire? Go through it. All right. So again to be loved and deeply valued by others. New must I find those feelings, within and for yourself, others, will respond to you. When you have learned to embrace your own being in a positive respectful way. It's how you're treating himself. Hey, also wanna say listeners what's your playlist? Look like what are you listening to, you know, what are the thoughts that you thinking? And how are you spending your minutes like them? Yeah. Feeding your body's so anyways, yes, you have to respect yourself, the two of cups, reversed we in control river so we won't even dive into that. But the correspondence to numbers are to forty six and six associated birthdays are may twenty eighth to June seconds and associated plants, I rose earthy Queen of the meadow. Mercy. All righty. That was that was reading for June. Wow. I mean, top to bottom that was really profound in, like it meant a lot to me. That's for danger. And I'm sure that, you know, even on the most basic level, release your past is your past slow it down rest in the in the present and know that the future is bright and has potential and prosperity in it. There you go. I. Buddies perspective on on how they that's how you interpreted. I would love to hear people like respond to their perspective of that. Yes, for sure. So I want to encourage any of the listeners that if this is, whether it's your first episode or you're listening every week, please leave a review and let cordelia know how amazing she is providing that for us. And cordelia, if someone is kind of, like, just beginning to understand this world of transformation and ascension and consciousness. What would you love to say to someone just beginning their journey? So I teach yoga. I had not mention that here, but in my classes. Being able to have those students, they're with me. I just practice so much gratitude. I think that's everything just, just being grateful. I love that. I love that specifically for that question. Because oftentimes when we start this journey of development transformation and whatnot. It's because we do think something's wrong, or we relate to ourselves as broken. And when you just said like to practice gratitude it's like my life is great. Plus, like, yes, I thought of something earlier, I don't know why I knew that this question was coming, but I did and thought about it like when we're so angry. There are really harsh thoughts that are coming into our brain, and they're coming, and they're like pounding, like, like, you know, you're just cursing, somebody or cursing at yourself this angry. And how would it feel to in those moments which gears and start just like champion yourself? Instead, same. Like, look, you know, you are while you are taking care of you are loved to are worthy. You know, you got this, you know, you can get through this and. And you know, you're, you're gorgeous, just the way that you are, like just keep being rampant with those types of thoughts, the subtle lined is really not so subtle. It's. Rape. Well said have to be in tune with men, like, yeah, that's, that's everything. And once you have control over that life will flow. No, you know what? And this is Ben coming through all week long. So I'm loving the opportunity to share it as like out in the world. They've begun to start talking about as if the subconscious is a bad thing against you. And it's not it's that we're not being conscious of the subconscious, so it is the you said it's running rampant like we could real it in and hone it. And you know, harness that power, and then transmute it into something into creation, and so. Yeah, the subconscious is actually with you in four you its job is to keep you safe or comfortable or protected. But when you can tell that so conscious I am protected like yours. I am love. Let it go. Let it I'm here. I'm powerful. I am feminine. I am masculine I am all things. I'm rethinking that, then you realize you are truly capable of n. Anything you want, and you can be here to truly live your heart unleashed, and your gifts out loud and make the impact that, you know, you're here to make in, like we already know we already know but we're looking so hard outside of us as if we're 'cause we are being told that we don't know, ourselves, or that were wrong or damaged goods are on. An and we believe it. We buy in. And so if you can hear this today in, like, remember that you are a sovereign being with on a very divine mission then you can trust that.

Talk Tom Gresham here. You'd like to join US eight six six talking about or just call me at Tom. Talk Gun Lot a lot of things going on in the news. This week is looking at the reports. We we don't have all the information at all even close to it. This shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola a call. A couple of days ago. We know now a Saudi aviation student member of the Saudi military WHO now turns out? Let's see four people dead including himself. Several other people shot some really brave in good law enforcement officers who ran a and two of them got shot but he ended up being able to stop this guy shot and killed him. Turns out that he had had Party already a dinner party a few days before this. Some of his buds at the part of their watching videos of mass shootings and one of his buddies actually videotaped the shooting. Two of them. Two others were watching it. So they're part of the whole deal tears. It's simply a terror attack. It made me once again. visit the idea of what are you doing how you prepared. Have you thought about this. Do you understand that I understand your new said well a terrorist attack. That would be rare. I actually three nine. Wears you think these days Fort Hood we've got Texas who got California on and on a number of these shootings have been terror-related related and then the question becomes what if you get caught in the middle of one of those. What are you carrying? He's just not going to be enough are are you carrying a semiautomatic with enough ammo in it and an extra magazine and do you have some skills. Do you have some training. Have you been exposed. I mean just I right off the bat. Do you understand that you need to get moving right away. Move move move move get yourself into a place where you can either get cover or perhaps. Let me throw this thought out to you. Have you thought about this. Get you back to a wall or get somebody who's with you to be washing behind you to watch for allies because that may not be the only person there we. We had a shooting in Walmart. I was in Vegas where a good guy moves into the guy and other people and he doesn't know but the shooter's girlfriend sneaks up behind find. The good guy shoots him in the back of the head. She's an outlier. Just watching C.. Who shows up to try to stop the mass murderer? You can't have is in the back of your head Ed. Do you have a conversation with the person that you spend time with. All the time your spouse what are we going to do if even if that it would be great if that person is trained it has a gun and knows how to use it but even without that if that person kin no okay put your hand on my shoulder. You're going to go wherever we're going to go. We're going to move. We're GONNA stay together but you're looking around your look into the side you look behind. You're watching see what's going on. Oh Gee that would require us to whole train which brings us To our guest. Some several years ago we started doing some video work working with the folks at the F. R. C. Shooting Range in Baton Rouge Louisiana and they haven't really really interesting program going on right now John Hansi joins us from FRC. He's general manager and chief instructor there. Hey John how are you. Hey Tom how are you. I am doing great. You guys have a great range of people in the bat new Jerry. You're actually anywhere in south part of Louisiana to know about it and come take a look at what you guys have been doing there. Well thank you so much. I appreciate that we miss you around here. I'm a senior in a lot of Seen Ryan several times K.. J. But avenue senior has been about a year. That's right you gotta make those young guys work now. Nancy an honor to have you here and I hope you now. You've got an open door anytime like well. I appreciate it. Well what I want to do is when I saw this program called the Sentinel Program and then the junior center the program. Explain Your Center program is kind of first of all what is it. Let's talk about that. So the program is basically. It's a comprehensive prohibitive program That's designed to educate armed citizen in in all the aspects of firearms safe including Responsible gun ownership ethical and moral politicians of carrying a gun for self defense legal parameters and the ramifications of using deadly force if you have to and of course marksmanship gun handling skills individual tactics and both for avoiding or if necessary prevailing in a violent encounter it is a quantitatively measured course in other words they are tested exclusive tested extensively on every aspect of all the courses that they take So you know. We're we're we're very much Proponents of being able to quantify the training And it's it's it's basically designed to take the novice obvious shooter all the way through quantifiable competent. This is not an 'cause you mentioned the classes of the courses. This is not a class or a course. This is a whole bunch. Of course isn't it. Yes sir that's correct. They dissemble candidates actually required to take ten of our flagship courses sources which include first time shooter class the Louisiana concealed handgun permit class Draw clinic The concealed carry enhanced class defensive pistol. They also take hemorrhage trauma They also are required to attend the Louisiana Legal Seminar which is interestingly. Interestingly enough typically presented by attorney James Reeves out of New Orleans. I'm sure you're familiar within There's also a force on force class that they have to take which is which is very interesting you know. Normally simulations type training is is exclusively for the military and And and law enforcement but we're very privileged in the fact that we're able to offer that to civilian population terrific and so valuable and it. I mean you get that and we do it as you know. We've we've shot some of the first person to finish shows with you guys and which I always hear from everybody is wow. I never thought of that happens every single time. I'm right absolutely the thing are also we have a thirty two hundred square foot two story fully furnished house basically and the staff half here we basically call it the ego buster because you know people come in and they think they can shoot and a lot of them really can but once they get in there air of the entire dynamic changes when a targets. Start shooting back you okay so all right and then you got the phone force and then and what else is innocent involved in this program There's also quite a large block of private one on one instruction That's not typically available salable to our to our other customers kind of exclusive for the Sentinel Program and then there's an entire day of qualification like their qualification. Test is actually an eight our an eight hour ordeal is quite. It's quite challenging They've got to pass a lie. Far Qualification Designed by the instructor Dr Staff here that foresee they also have to pass a semi munitions qualification inside the shoot house which incorporates a lot of the Sikh you be techniques Yeah also different scenarios like home intruder active shooter things like that And then there's a one hundred question written exam and it's it's it's very heavily weighted towards Louisiana Legal Statutes and It's it's not a it's not a multiple choice true false. It's it's essay okay. And and and and Short answer so I it's quite a challenging course And the good the P.. Yesser what do you get at the the end of this long involved taking all these courses I mean is there like this super certificate or something or the most. Most important thing they get is peace of mind When they finish this course Tom they will basically have more firearms specific trainings? And they average street COP The Department of Justice did a report Several years back where they estimated that the average police officer spends about one hundred and ten Hours on Self-defense. Farms training of that hundred and ten hours sixty of it is firearms specific The seminal program is actually closer sixty five seventy hours farm specific training so they will literally have a at least as much as or more than the average Police officer and then there are some binny's you know. Of course they're going to get the really really nice frame Abol certificate they're going to get the Sentinel Patch. They will earn that patch and they also so get their name on the wall as RC. Sentinel and it's displayed here inside the Inside the range. What else found interesting you'd have the Sentinel Program but you have a junior senior citizen program? You know. That's what I'm really most excited about. I've got I've got about seven candidates now in the adult program and we're working on getting our first couple of junior signals. You know I'm so concerned about the whole virtual reality in the video Game thing and and I want the new generation to learn the respect and the responsibility that comes with dealing with firearms that shooter. What's interesting about the junior central program? Is that these kids and it starts at twelve and Tom but these kids are going to learn every single thing that the adults learn earn. The only thing that's different is they won't actually get a concealed handgun permit out because they can't they sit in the class. That's right right but they still take the class and they still learn all of that valuable legal information and everything. They just won't get the permit but they're literally going to taking the same training that the adults do. How long does it take to go through the entire program so we work at the student's pace? Okay it it is conceivable that you can finish the program in about ninety days. Okay if they were to schedule their classes back to back when they're offered They could conceivably finish initially about ninety days but we do work students pace. It's very flexible. they can finish ninety days. They can finish six months You know it just depends on their schedule. Joel So so we're very flexible with their schedules. You know time is precious for a lot of these folks for Think about a lot of people be interested in this. Obviously you gotta live in the the area to take advantage of it but if somebody runs a shooting range in another part of the country and everything and that sounds pretty cool. I'd like to talk to John About that. Would you be willing to chat with with other shooting ranges about what you're doing my God absolutely absolutely. You know it's funny. I'm arrange operator right now. So I gotTa keep the lights on right so I have to earn money and everything. But that's not what we're all about it if RC whereabout mission you know and the more people you know you're talking about the active shooter A.. And Pensacola and guys would you do. Are you trained all those kinds of and what attracted our prayers and our thoughts go out to those poor people But but but you know hey what ultimately what are we trying to achieve. We want people to get trained. You know this this. This thing kind of formed in my mind. I'm sure you're familiar. It was called Ren a show. I'm sure you know He just came out with his fabulous book strategies and standards for Defensive Handgun Training and some great information that but while I was reading that and really got to think got me to thinking. Well how do we get people to train passed the state minimums you know and and this is this program is kind the brainchild of that so yeah I would love for other ranges to call me and ask me about it because I'm more than willing to help them. You know. Set up their own program. The website is F. R. C. B. R. dot com that's for Baton Rouge F. R. C. B. R. dot com right.

This landon once wild and free fades now from our memory but I remember what it was like what we were like what we're capable of when we band together perhaps more than any other landscape wet at last embodied the light giving abundance that nature has to offer and perhaps more than any other organization ducks unlimited is working to ensure that our continent's it's wetlands not only survive but thrive for generations. Well beyond this one. These natural wonders are where waterfowl. Oh began their cycle of life with the deer and the antelope playing and where we being. The people gathered together to C. N.. Share what makes is the outdoors so great but time is now to band together with organizations like ducks unlimited. Time is now to rescue. You are wetlands view. Need a shotgun. You really do home. Defense Hunting Tactical Target Competition Muss Berg. Yes musburger that's all you you need to know pumps autos over. unders extended mags. Detachable box mags sites slings. Twelve twenty two thousand eight and four ten Woodson rugged metal coatings and of course the revolutionary shockwave not technically a shotgun. But it's awesome short powerful and lifesaving making rugged guns for Americans for one hundred years find your shotgun outgun at Mossberg Dot com and we got some numbers out of black Friday night not the regular sales of guns black Friday gun check check numbers from the FBI. More than two hundred thousand background checks were done on black Friday gun purchases in all. Let's say the bureau posted in two hundred and two thousand four hundred sixty five checks Friday at an eleven percent increase from last year and falling just short of the single day record that was in two thousand thousand seventeen also got the numbers from the National Shooting Sports Foundation. They put out a release on. How many guns are in private hands in the United States of America? And I've made guesses before we've all made guesses but they decided. Well let's go take a look into research. I was off boy was I ever. I was off by and half two hundred percent if you look at it the other way. They're saying four hundred and twenty three million that number four hundred and twenty three million firearms owned by the public in private hands in the United States of America America and you look at modern sporting rifles semiautomatic rifles. Fifteen if you prefer it which getting real close to eighteen million talk about being in common use. And why would I use that term. Well and the Heller decision. Asian Springboard Decision Justice Scalia. Scalia said the government cannot ban guns that are in common use all these assault weapon bans of guns that are in common use if we can just get a case in front of the Supreme Court. We can challenge that. Actually an injection was just filed a request for an injunction in California. California has the so-called so called assault weapon ban and fires Pasi Coalition Challenge. That and said. Wait wait that actually is a violation of the law. That's unconstitutional according to the Supreme Court's decision. And we'll see what happens there. Four hundred twenty three million guns private hands oh Oh yeah this is interesting. Why is it the media talking about this and wild? Those numbers keep going up. More and more people are buying guns more people again carry permits more people are carrying guns for self defense war. People are keeping goes into homes for self defense and the crime rate keeps going down. The murder rate keeps going down. Crimes committed with firearms keeps going down accidental. Gunshot deaths keep going down accidental gunshot desk of youngsters of youth that numbers at the lowest. It's ever ever been in recorded history. The United States four hundred twenty three million guns and moderate goes down the accidental gunshot rate. It goes down what happened to that. Whole more guns equals more crime thing? Hey Tom this. Out of Stevensville Michigan Online wanted. Hey Tom you're on gun talk. What's what's going on here Tom? Thanks for taking my call. my question is whether or not I need to be concerned about condensation forming inside my carry pistol so do the temperature extreme swings more specifically the office where I work does not allow firearms -bility if I brought in to work with me get fired so every day when I get to work I lost my gun a lot case in the trunk of My car then when when I get off work I take it out and my ship got off Michigan. It's yes Near below freezing outside almost a third of the year more and I have to think when that gun is that cold and then quickly orange on my hip that Kinda M- station forms on all the internal parts now could disrepute more exposure cause corrosion of the National L. Parks over time but honestly it's no different from where I live down in the southern part of the country where to gun you're sweating. Gotten all the time. Well let's get wet from that as well and that's corrosive stuff. Here's the deal at least once a week at an absolute minimum. You need to take that carry gun out of the holster. Unloaded take it apart and wipe it down with a good gun or something that prevents rust once a week at a bare minimum. Maybe maybe twice. A week is better. It would take only five minutes. It's not a big deal. You are absolutely correct to be concerned about this thing. And it's really easy and you don't want to talk about easy. Get into the pattern of I put it on every day and do this deal back. You know I put it on and you suddenly look. Yeah it's been a month since I've taken this thing out of the holster and cleaned it and what you will find is there may be some small areas where you start to pick up a little bit of rust. Inside of the slots and screws the grips little places on the slide. Perhaps so for everybody. WHO's carrying a pistol honestly once-a-week so week figure out when you're going to do it but I think that's probably not a bad interval once a week take it apart on unloaded please poignant born and safe direction take it apart? Don't spray it. Please don't spray guns with oil spray. If you've got spray spray it on the cloth and then wiped gun down. If you've shot the gun certainly clean it with a solve it and then wipe it down with a good gun oil. Some Kinda rush protected you can find all these products over. We're at Brownell. Our good friends there. They have the best stuff ever. That's where I go all my stuff. It's brown else. B. R. O. W. N. E. L. L. S. BROWN DOT COM. Take look at the gun cleaning staff I I use their rust preventative stuff. Everything from the stuff to put on the guns to the paper barrier chip she put in safes really really good stuff. When you're down here in the humid south he worry about rust all the time? Excellent point take the call eight six six talk GonNa be right back with more gun. Talk all right back with you Tom. Gresham eight six six. Talk Gun get you in here. Thinking about this terror shooting. It's all his Naval Air Station in Pensacola. There'll be more of those we've had quite a few of them already in the US. They'll be more they pop up where you least expect it. Of course gun-free zones are good place for military bases are in fact gun free zones but if you carry everywhere you can and keep your head on a swivel you can react quickly. Now the question is how do you react to you. Just leave the area. You might not be a bad idea. Do you take action against the shooter. Depends on situation. What if we have family members with you? We know in the middle of that so really bad time to to try to figure it all out you might WanNa have thought about that ahead of time and maybe even get some training. There are a lot of places now that are teaching active shooter training. What do you do if and and if you get into force on force shooting you will find out very quickly that just being the good guy doesn't mean you don't get hurt in these deals and it's exceptionally exceptionally dangerous to insert yourself into the middle of it and yet I understand and yet a lot of us have said yes we will that being the case what do you carry? What are you carrying on you carry pistol? What do you carry for extra ammunition? Go carry for medical equipment. I mean I'm sitting here. I'm just thinking right now as I'm doing this show let's see I have thirteen plus this one Fourteen rounds pistol and I've got thirteen rounds on the other side on those and I've got tournament in a pocket and I haven't left the house today so just saying you might want to be thinking about things like that. Brian called in from Huntsville. Alabama on four Brian. Talk about this carrying your vehicle vehicle in a box. We had that question. What do you think yeah Similar Situation Alabama has a law that you can as long as not on federal property. You you can keep your firearm and your car been doing it a while and what is cut down on my cleanings is simply taking that box. Make sure it's make sure it's reasonably reasonably sealed and then put Celica Gel packs in there that way at least there's no moisture inside a pistol once it's brought out and exposed to the outside air and Atis cut down on the cleanings tremendously interesting. So basically a Silica Gel pack it just absorbs moisture and you can obviously try. Swipe all a little boxes you get or you can actually buy Silica Gel packs that are made for that again. Brownell has those. I'M GONNA throw out a four-year Brian. I'm looking at the rows renos website. They have this thing called Rust Blocks B. L. O. X. Nicole Vapor Tabs. They are about the size of Triscuit triscuit crackers. If you know okay and you get a dozen for eight bucks and they give off a gas that he he basic a stops rust so you throw a couple of those in the box with your pistol. I keep like two dozen of my gun safe in there because it is the human south just like you are and I'm here for eight bucks for a dozen these things. Why would you not an absolute used the silicone Gel but also a couple of these? He's in as well. I mean why not. This is like the cheapest most effective thing I can think of for anybody. WHO's concerned about rust on guns? I'll be trying it okay. It's called rust blocked. Beal ex at the broncos website. Yeah you know and all of us I appreciate your what you're saying because there are times times frankly all of us have to leave a gun and the car somewhere. I'm going to a place where I can't take my going into a courthouse police station. I'm going into the post office. which is now is prohibited? You can't take your gun in there and you gotta leave it in the car. Where do you leave it? Where do you do if you gotta leave all day? Go someplace now. It's a whole different deal. And I was sure encouraged people to use some some kind of locking system because a lot of guns stolen from cars. Please please please. Don't just stuff it into the center console. Because that's first place. They look they go. Hey Ryan thank out by the way Brian. I'll be all your local Huntsville stationed in the morning so tune in Dhabi joining you there. So all right hop over to rusty in Shreveport Louisiana light here what rusty. Don't go anywhere I realize I'm just about out of time. I'M GONNA come right back to you because information that central program and we'll talk a little bit about what's going on in Shreveport as well We'll take a quick break here. We're GONNA come back to rusty eight six talk I'll be right back when the US military's elite units and law enforcement agencies across the globe demanded innovation reliability. They they didn't settle they chose six-hour when world champion professional shooters demanded precision accuracy. They didn't settle. They chose six hour. So it's no no surprise more and more civilian gun. Owners are refusing to settle for anything less. They're choosing SIG Sauer firearms ammunition electro optics suppressors air guns intriguing. Sig Sauer never settle mental health and guns at walked the Talk America. We're working working with both the mental health community and the gun industry created by a gun industry veteran walk the talk. America seeks to raise awareness and create change through suicide aside prevention and firearm safety without legislation we strive to eliminate the prejudice that firearms and mental health face for more information Asian and to support. Walk the Talk America. Please visit walk the talk. America Dot Org. Are you looking for a place to shoot. The the national shooting. Sports Foundation has a great website called where to shoot dot org. It's the largest database of shooting ranges on the Internet. It's also a great resource source for shooters where you can find video. Tips printed targets and a lot more. Find it online and where to shoot dot. Org while you're there download their hypo- now that's where shoes dot org With yeah we had A little bit earlier John. From if our C. Range in baton Bruce talked about their sentinel program. I think rusty. He's got a question about that. Line two hey rusty how you doing man maybe rush has to do all right. Well you know what rusty kept him Olympic too long sorry about that. Here's the deal if Rushdie's listening or if you want more information this is essentially what they're doing at the F.. RC range engine. Matin Ridge is a series of classes. It's not one class. You go and take take it over a period of ninety days to six months as they they offer them and it gets you scheduled in there. It's basically what it is. It's an organized way for you just to become very competent and knowledgeable knowledgeable rather than say I'm GonNa go take a gun class. No I'm going to start my education. I like that aspect of if you want more information about what they're doing and their website is F. R. C. B. R. It's F R C in there in Baton Rouge Louisiana if our C. B. R. DOT COM. And they have the information there and John Hannity. He's the general manager and chief instructor it. F R C. He said. Look if there's another rain somewhere they wanna talk to me about what we're doing find out we can talk about it. Describe how it's put together and everything by all means give them a call. Why would you do something like that? Why would you take hake sign up for a whole bunch of classes? Well let's see first of all it's very interesting it is fun. It's challenging John Ging. You'll learn a lot. You get to shoot a lot. You'll learn a lot about the law. You learn about stopping the believe about medical trauma things and and when you come out of it on the other side you will have a level of confidence that actually is matched by your level of competence. It's unfortunate we have a lot of people have a level of confidence. It's based on nothing more then fooling themselves. The dining Krueger affect is very much in play on some of this people who don't have much competence. who very much overestimate how good? They are are and weirdly enough. According to the dunning Kruger Affect people who have a lot of competent to a very good often. Underestimate their ability eh. But we don't see a lot of that. We see a lot of people who took a conceal carry class ten years ago and they think that they are really super swift. You're not let I mean. Just say you're not if if you haven't if you're taking regular classes your skills are going downhill and yes you may be going out and shooting but are you really really practicing. Are you practicing AL function drills. Are you practicing drawing a moving. Are you tracking practicing drawing with your weak hand. I I dare say I bet. Most people have never practiced drawing with their weekend. If you're right handed put your right hand on top of your head and draw your pistol out and shoot. It's a mess and there are ways you can learn to do that. You really want to get some training in that because if you try to do it on your own with a loaded gun. There's at least somewhere chance you're going to put a hold on yourself somewhere. That's kind of the antithesis of what we're trying to do here. We're trying to avoid getting bulletholes ourselves so pretty good men ourselves. You know. That's a bad idea. There are ways to train for this. They they actually are wasted. You can train to clear a malfunctioning jammed gun if you will one handed it's ugly. Nobody likes training on that stuff. But it's really important to get in the middle of a real bad situation. The the whole idea is yet to fight to the end to get to those side right and stay alive and keep your family alive. I mean when you really get down to it but would you take a whole bunch of classes like this. I didn't ask. You probably should have what. What would it cost? I don't know probably people go to gunsight thunder ranch and seek academy and he'll take a whole series of classes. I mean I know a lot of people who've into gunsight and taking the two fifty three fifty class and on and on take class ticket pistol class speaking speaking of that life classes I took a Combo class. Recently I talked about it here with a pistol and rifle rifle in this case being carbon. Ar Fifteen more and more people. I talked to these days are having a truck gun or a car gun a vehicle gun. Is that something you do or have you considered it and if you do what do you carry in your vehicle you carry a are fifteen if you carry a long gun. I I got a buddy in Texas. Love his style he cares. Forty five seventy lever action. Well that's actually not bad when you think about it if you had to try to solve situation. Forty five seventy lever action. Maybe not a bad idea thinking about. Ar Fifteen also low powered variable scopes. Something that starts from one goes like one to four one two six. Leave it on one. especially if it's illuminated basically functions like a red dot but if you needed to if something was going on down the way a two hundred yards and you could crank up to four five six power and you can take care of that problem. I know very low percentage very low. Oh possibility you'd ever need that but boy you need it more than anything. Online four raised with a storing us out of the state of New York. Talk About Chief Justice Roberts Birt's ray what's on your mind. Well I concern to you because if you if you Hook back to about. I think it was two thousand ten Chief Justice Roberts. This was was the final vote that basically told us that the governor could force us to buy insurance so and and that was really a walked decision. Because do they side with one call. A fee will call the tax. And that's how we get around it Well I have two problems that one. I don't know if we can canton. Yeah though I know we have a Lido we have Thomas we have gorsuch away of cavenaugh and they really wanted to take the case. I'm sure and they and they wanNA resolve in our favor. However I think but Roberts is kind of virtuous signaling kind of guy and also. He screwed US twice over because you know what he did when he's when he he did that decision. lead that decision on the healthcare now if A state says we want you to carry a thousand dollars ten thousand dollars twenty thousand dollars in liability insurance before you can own a gun. Well we GONNA say you can't forced to buy insurance you tell. The court said this sports insurance. Yeah and and look we understand that Roberts has the swing vote he likes. I think he likes playing that position. So we have four conservative justices we have four four liberal justices and Roberts some people say well he's conservative. He's not and we know that this particular case let's hearken back to the case. It was hard on L. Monday. Before the Supreme Court New York Stay Rifle Pistol Association versus the city of New York. I think Roberts wants to be the one who says the cases moot they will not hear it. I have a theory to throw out. It's not original with me but I'm not gonNA share. Who share it with because he may not want me to? But there's an idea out there that within the Supreme Court the justices. They talk all the time they work together. They do these well if you do this. Let's do that. I'll help support you on this. What if obviously Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito would really like to take this case? They'd like to support gun rights. But if they are looking at it and going okay Justice Roberts Chief Justice Roberts is leaning toward kicking it out to carry a moot. Maybe one of them goes to him and says all right. Here's the deal. I'll actually vote with you on this. I'll join you with this. But you've got to agree to take one of the Second Amendment cases. It's coming our way because there are like two or three really good cases headed to the Supreme Court. Right now maybe even better cases honestly than this New New York State Rifle Pistol Association case and I have never know at this kind of deal gets done but it's kind of fun to think about and it's very possible something like that could happen so I guess where I am is if this particular case. That's before them right now. If the Supreme Court turns around and says okay a because of the weirdness of this we're going to say that the cases moved is really no case. We're not gonNA. We're not going to go forward not going to decide it. ON ITS MERITS WE'RE GONNA kick back of lower court. It doesn't disturb me hugely. I would love for undertake it. But I'm also encouraged because I think there will be more cases coming that they will actually take maybe better cases there's also circle back down and let the right. Thank you for the call circle back where I always end up judges and justices. Donald Trump has put one hundred sixty five. Federal Judges on the bench flipped three circuit court to conservative. He's put two justices on the Supreme Court. If we get to more the second amendment becomes a lot safer a lot more protected so four more years of him I think gets. That's two more justices on the Supreme Court. That would be huge and frankly I think it has the potential for negating undoing actually clean fact repealing a lot of these devastating gun control gun confiscation assault weapon type fans that would be pretty darn special at the time of year. We're buying steph gifts for everybody but you know for yourself and even if you don't spend a lot of money I have just been say wasting time but it's actually very productive time during the breaks because I went over looked up at the broncos website. Do you know how that ends ends up being a rabbit hole. You're going down that I had their vapor blocks are Russ preventive triscuits. I call them. We then something like that. They're very very cool. Triple tough premium storage bags are like the plastic for some kind of polymer thin flexible store. Your guns them see up there moisture proof so get you're gonNA good treatment with some kind of respiratory of oil. I like the Brown. Els Call it or protect it number. Two they call it in putting this plastic bag. Seal it up actually. I like to drop a couple of those vapor blocks in Dan as well and basically don't worry about it in like when they say area actually Mister to if whether you're storing in a vault or the back corner of of a closet one ever breakdown even if in full contact with soil or moisture what they're talking about there but seriously a you can treat yourself go over to the Brown els website Brown Dot Com and look what they have there. It's just like one thing after another. If you you sign up there they will send you alerts when they're doing sales and they've had a lot of really good sales at the last few weeks. I've been noticing just cool stuff. They're gonNA find that House keep a big bottle of it. It's funny I don't remember the name of this site polar protected number two. It's a a gun oil that that they had for me there. It is rust preventative number. Two that's what it is Brown rust preventative number to get in the squeeze bottle. It's not aerosol all and so you get an awful lot out of a bottle of use out of it what is it C. One pint and then you can get refills for it. So yeah respirator number two but it just in terms of taking care of your guns or take him apart they have a are parts have actually as a matter of fact they've got all sorts of stuff. It's just a neat exciting. If you're buying for others or buying for yourself if you're GonNa you know I just can't think of a better place had a call from buddy mind this week. You said hey upside to get a revolver. Didn't own one he said I'm in watching carrying years. When we're up in Idaho but I want something small and light and I said did you know he wants to thirty eight slash three fifty seven? You know if you want the lightest thing that I can think of right off the bat the Ruger L. CR is very good. You KINDA gotta gotTa look at the Smith and the Ruger's and compare if you're looking at revolvers. There's a difference in the trigger pool in those two double trigger. But we're talking about not the single action double trigger pool in because he's thinking about self defense from whether it be snakes her cougars or something out there. You were like one better than the other. I don't know which that will be I have both I like both the J frame. Smith's as well as the Ruger's some people prefer Ruger's that'd be ver- Smith. The good news is say you can't make a bad choice here their dog. It'll it'd be good but I thought it was interesting. This is a guy who and people say well revolvers. That's old Yep but they're good. They're reliable they're easy to carry their simple and their versatile. Because if you got three fifty seven you could shoot thirty specials. You can shoot thirty eight special WAD cutters you. You can shoot. Shot charges snake loads with them. If you're in snake country or you can shoot full house. Three fifty seven magnum. which is a serious load whether it's gets two legged or four legged predators so I kind of thought that was a bit enlightened and everybody's thinking the semiotics there's this and that and this and that I get all that but you know if you've got all those you want don't have revolver now? You've just figured that which Christmas present is. What are you gonNA get for Christmas? Is it going to be one of those long skinny boxes under the tree you get yourself a handgun or maybe trying to love kgo eight six six talk that would come back. What's going on in Virginia if a tidal wave of Pro Second Amendment Resistance?

I would argue make at the time. He was so bad there that they they made the right call. He was he was good at at at se though they allowed one game to determine their future and they have not been the same sense. You so right about that coach. Oh what it did the same thing at SC that he doing that. Lsu You know. That's a good story. That was the best story San Coach L. Go back you know and you know my families. I run into those difficulties in California myself because my family we from Mississippi so you know all growing up like Utah country. He talked courtesy. So you know I. It's good to see coach l. Could just be a good down home keeping yourself who he is and he on top of the whole college football where so. That's been real good and I can't wait to see the ball. You know him against I man. That's crazy Kim. He he was working under. You know he he and. Lehner are very close friends and when he had lane kiffin not gotten the job at Florida Atlantic. I think there's a really strong possibility or probability that he would've gone to Lsu under under coach. Oh Hey thanks because we have to run to a break. We have more guest to come It's been a very busy Friday afternoon on this. Good Friday and we're coming right back. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum.

It's been a great day so far so and Guess what I was doing while I was listening to the first couple hours with a show planting victory gardens. Hey planting victory gardens number two. That is fantastic you Do you have a garden or do you plan anything on the back porch? Or what There's nothing here. Yeah well like I said it'd be if you've got room at your state you might. Oughta get you pot sticky a couple tomato plants in there. Yeah we as a kid we. We grew tomatoes. Yeah Yeah I planted fifteen of them so We'RE GONNA BE DIVIDED. As I planted one garden victory garden number one last weekend at my mother's and Plan Victory Garden number two today. So I'm on my way back home but a lot of people are planning gardens. Guess what else. There's a run on this year. Fall baby chickens. Really baby chickens are flying off the shelf. I mean they're finding their brothers things they to start drilling chickens. Now I guess because of a shortage of food and things of that nature which isn't a bad idea. I'm all for it. If if they wouldn't allow me to have chickens in my neighborhood trust I would but we have some pretty strict rules in in the in the area that I live at. But now I just wanted to call in Pass on the good news there. One and Till I WANNA have a happy weekend and we'll be talking again next week. I'll thank you score. Really pleased to hear the news. Extremely pleased Jefferson Columbus Ohio. What's going on Paul? Hey Jeff a I don't forget. I hope we have a great Easter weekend. My Man I appreciate everything you do. Thank you yeah. Hey have you heard any update on Larry from shelby? I haven't heard anything about him lately. No we talked to him about four weeks ago and Someone called us off the air but I don't think we've heard from him Since all of this began. Yeah I know it. I hope he's listening right now. If he is just let him know people are thinking about him and just kind of curious how he's doing hopefully doing good. I'm assuming power you isolate it from the boys in the box right now I mean. Have you seen them in a while? I haven't seen anyone I mean. I just curious how rough those tasty why guys look especially wasn't so scruffy beard. They've gotta be looking rough right now. Don't you imagine yeah I saw? It's been about three. I think it was three weeks ago today that we pulled out of the studio so I have not seen them since no I spoken to them. We'll grant Jews are looking scruffy. What those beers. I'm sure. Hey I just heard score on the line and one thing I learned. Listen to the show this week. Is Hunting season a squirrel hunting seasons? Why open down your way right this time of year? I mean people coming to scroll really hard including yourself. Squirrel has had A. I'm glad that we ended well until then it had been a pretty rough week. Yeah but he's got a lot of rowdy but I tell you what fall I kind of a little bit newer. He was coming from and I WANNA. I WanNa just discuss that a little bit. I don't think the media by by a lot of people to beginning thought you know. A lot of people were thinking. The media created this story. I guess you'd say but I am a little concerned especially as things are starting to improve a little bit. I'm getting inserted how the media though is reporting it and portraying right now. Well here's what I can I can tell you what's going on. It's pretty easy It's gone from the concerns about what was going to happen to now. When will the country reopen? And that's the debate. I agree and but what bothers me is when things are negative. It's amazing how it's reported versus when we're getting positive news and that's bothering me. A little bit. I turn on the national news when I get home in the evening. And it's always the negative stuff first and then and then like for example stock market had a great week. Okay probably the best I think in forty five years and I noticed it was the third. Yeah but I. I'm not being contrarian here but but hold on a second. The reason why the stock market had that week is because it was down thirty five percent so I think that is discounted somewhat although the stock market is an interesting indicator. I have to whether it's a it's ultimately a true indicator but the media is I think I get a little tired of seeing the numbers up. But that's just that's the new normal. I mean I I don't want the media ever bother me because I can change the channel. Well I agree with that but I just think when it's negative. It's the first thing that's positive. It's the third or four yeah I. I don't mean to debate this Jeffrey but still an enormous number of people dying every day. I understand that and I don't want anybody to but also the point of we gotta people are starting to panic big time right now. I've talked to a lot of people in the last couple of days and I think in the next seven to ten days if people either don't start receiving the money support they've been promised or some jobs start opening back up a little bit. People are really starting to panic from company currently wrinkly people that want to get back to work and some of it. I don't quite understand some of the restrictions to be honest with you. You know like in. Let me ask you like what what restrictions don't you understand. Okay you take a show room for example when there is a a showroom likes to go look at tile or go look at cars. I don't understand why people can't I think some of the businesses have to be allowed to take some of the responsibility owners to you only let ten people in right upper and and there's ways to do that and I think businesses would. I mean I've done employee I've got to be for. Let me ask you what are you doing? What are how are You Operating Your Business Right? How are You Operating Your Business? Luckily were exempted right. Now from you know from And I and I have to keep the guys. We take their temperature every morning. We have you know The whites and everything the Lysol Whitewater you WANNA call it a handy but we definitely have them at like fifteen to twenty feet apart. Okay and if we have to. I've been spending my time. The last cure three run people to and from jobs. Because I won't I won't let more than one guy in a company vehicle. One time there's ways to do it and that's what bothering me as the restrictions on some people are so tight they can't even get creative to open their business back up. I mean businesses would be creative. If they're allowed to be to make it work. I mean what do you think about? Yeah I understand what you're saying. I think what you're talking about is completely different than opening up schools and events. I know I I'm just saying that. I I I would I would find. I think you make a really strong case and what I don't understand And I try to watches every day and and listen and you can. You can watch the president and pretty well understand where his thoughts are. And I think he's thinking about small businesses and big businesses. And and I I. I don't know how to answer your question because I think if you're responsible but you can't get is chaos again especially in certain areas and I agree one hundred percent. It's gotTa be regional. You know to me this this these pockets that are like New York Seattle. It's a lot to do with about the travel of people coming in and out of those and those pockets of the country and Meyer. The numbers say I read something. I was in New York about Right before this happened we did a show from there and I read today that pry about two weeks prior to that This influx started to come in and it wasn't from China. It was from Europe. I right I agree with that. And I've got some very good contact that lives in that lives in Brooklyn and has to go to his warehouse business in New Jersey and I'm not a lot of conversations with him. He's scared to death obviously. But he's kept the Business Open. He's allowed to write he's like. I said he's been creative and he's made it work. Well I'll say this I I'm not. I'm no jeff after onto a break but I do think I think we're close. We were just not quite there yet. I understand your passion. I understand your frustration. I certainly do. We are heading to a break. We'll have a guest coming up in a moment and then we will get back to your phone calls here. You're welcome to call a nowaday five to four two seven two eight five you listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. Just Walk Me Back. Great to have you here. It's been really a memorable show and we will back to your calls in a moment. We're delighted to welcome to our show chip scroggins who writes for the Star Tribune Up in Minneapolis and he did really fascinating piece. This week about The State of college athletics. And what possibly this Cova. Nineteen could have the impact could have on it a chip. Thank you thank you very very much for joining us and I certainly hope you're safe and sound. I know things are difficult. But that's pretty evident in what you're writing about good afternoon. Yeah thanks for having me Paul Root for Shit. So take take the audience through what you've learned in reporting and talking to various people and what it all means about The impact and we don't know really winning ends but it's certainly going to have an impact. Yeah I think that's what there's a lot of indie nervousness and anxiety with college administrators. Right now because they don't know when this is going to end and they're sort of fly Flying Blind trying to navigate this and figure out what is going to be the financial impact on their on their departments. And we got a glimpse of a little bit up here this week. Where the University of Minnesota Border Regents Had A meeting and they laid out what they think the implications are going to be for them and the best case scenario Paul for them is what it is right. Now in the project that they're gonNA lose ten million dollars in revenue There they have a moderate what they call moderate scenario. And that's if The gophers are allowed to play sports in the fall but without fans so if you have football games but no fans they project that they would lose thirty million dollars from that and then they're most severe or worst case. Scenario is it extends longer than that in the fall sports or cancelled and and it goes into next year and they projected they lose seventy five million dollars in revenue on that and for context their their budget. This year was one hundred and thirty million dollars. So you know even the best case scenario when you're losing ten million dollars in that's the best case scenario that tells you how dire the situation is and And that's probably pretty typical of athlete departments around the country. Yeah and you know more than I do about the numbers but Minnesota would be certainly In the among the power five in a pretty good realm maybe not Alabama or Texas who were southern cal. But certainly that's a respectable number so if assuming we get to the season and nothing else nothing else occurs you. You mentioned some pretty big numbers. Where where are those numbers coming from as part of that the NCAA tournament is at Spring? What is it Y- they would be projecting cause for for you know the two big conferences? Sec IN BIG TEN. They get so much money from big ten network distribution in meteorites Their two biggest Sources are that in attendance. And so if you take away a tennis from college football and you you can't put fifty seventy five hundred thousand people in a stadium and have that revenue you're gonNA that's GonNa really hit athletic departments hard and so They're projecting that that if they are able to play football games they'll still get the the big ten in media revenue but not the ticket gate revenue That's where the thirty million dollars comes in. And and you know they're in a better situation then. A lot of schools Even power five schools. That don't that don't have the conference network. Tv money that the FCC and big ten to and if you filter down and go to the smaller conferences that rely heavily on subsidies from university student fees and those things and they don't have those big TV packages If you go into fall when it impacts football is going to be a real problem for those schools how how is it. Impacting universities like Minnesota now. And I say now because we don't know about what happens in September but it's probably unlikely. There's there's certainly anyone's putting money in coffers to sign onto September without knowing the Saint Paul. There's not a lot of Big Sporting events happening in the spring. You Pass up all your pass basketball. So you're not losing a whole lot of money in ticket revenue there but I think when they are projecting. The real concern is the corporate dollars. GonNa come back or this sponsorships GONNA come back. Are corporations going to rent the sweets that they used to are the big named donors if you if you're used to giving a million dollars or five hundred thousand or a thousand or ten thousand whatever. Are those individuals still going to be in the same situation because what's happening with the economy to be able to give that money in the future and they don't know when when the economy you're gonNA rebound and come back and so I think those are the things that no one has an answer to and they're trying to project and you just don't know and so I think that's something Zayed is is how is not only the the fans and all that but just the economy and corporate sponsorships and and and donations are people still going to be willing to give that and I think that's the chip in the numbers you've given us fantastic and there's a lot of hard reporting that goes into that but I think the one unknown here is the level of enthusiasm and I've heard it and you've heard it Fans urine to see the Games. But that doesn't mean they're going to the Games. Yeah that's that's the big unknown right now. Let's say that football is back and they're playing in the fall or one hundred thousand people still want to Going to be willing to go to games. I mean that's that's the great unknown. I'm sure there'll be some. They go rushing back because they just ready to have some sports in their life and get back to normal. But I'm sure there are some people that say you know what I'm not ready to do that yet. And so you don't know until the Game Start Kinda what that impact is going to be and how many people are GonNa come back and so You know you can't do poll right and your your project a little bit but until the games come back and they get the all clear again. You don't know how many people are going to be willing to to kind of settle back into the norm and be fans again. What are you here? And what have you learned ship in talking to people What would be the trickle down Regardless of what model we ended up with. It's still going to affect big time. Athletic departments like Like Minnesota and many others so where What happens if if any of these models kick in no fans no not no no games I. There has to be a trickle down dozen. Yeah and that's what that's what athletic directors and are looking at. Now you saw. I think I will stay was one of the first schools to come out Jamie Pollard their. Ad said that he and his his senior staff and all their coaches took pay cuts in. That saved them about three million dollars in payroll for a year They have like director at Minnesota Mar. Kohl is doing the same thing with his senior staff in some coaches and I think that's probably going to be the norm. I I think you're GONNA see most big schools and maybe all schools. They're they're administrators. Inner head coaches take pay cuts but saying that that that gets you a three or four million dollars the you know looking at Minnesota situation they gotta get the ten and if it goes longer if you have to get the thirty million and make up that lost revenue. I honestly don't know how you do it in the one big thing that's hanging out there. Paul it really is a hard discussion for people is schools are going to cut sports. I mean I think that's just a thing that's realistic. And I talked to a former gopher athletic director Joe maturity this. This Week. And he's been he was when he was here. He was a champion for Olympic and non Revenue Sports And he even admitted that if you're an athletic director today deal with this revenue loss privately. You're going to have to have discussions about cutting sports if this goes longer. Because you just can't make up that gap if you're losing thirty million dollars in revenue off your budget. There's no other. There's you can't really nickel and dime that To get to that number. You're going to have to look at cutting sports and nobody wants to do that. And that's a you know a scary and hard topic for administrators have it. I'm sure they're having discussions privately. Yeah finally on that and we talked to christel. Kante last night the athletic director of Texas. And we all know. After football basketball there are some schools depending on where especially down the SEC. Were they believe it or not? Make MONEY ON BASEBALL. Because they have such a brand new stadiums. And and it's it's such a big deal but that's not everywhere and it I I doubt I doubt a lot of places in the big ten. That's a big money maker because the season is the start so it's still so cold but what would be. What are the what would be the most likely cuts realized? That's a speculative question. But what have you heard because he minnesota so they have three sports that they make money football basketball and hockey and then all the other ones lose money and so you know I. I guess like which ones would be the first in line to get cut but I think you'd probably have to look at the ones that maybe don't compete nationally. Can you do it regionally Could you offer those as clubs sports and just play? Kinda regionally But I I was thinking every probably non revenue. Sports is still a nervous right now because they are in lack of a better word a drain on on a budget. They lose money So I think they'll look at more. I Paul about curtailing travel you look at Minnesota Baseball and softball teams because of our climate. Here they have to spend the first month five weeks on the road at the beginning season because can't get outside and play. You're so they have to go to you. Know floored in Texas and California to play Games. So that's a big expense and so I think initially they would look in. Most schools are probably look at travel and different things but I'm sure if he came down and you had to cut sports. You'd probably look at the ones that you maybe you're not the most competitive in and maybe the ones that you're not getting the most bang for your buck. Just out of curiosity what What does it mean to Minnesota Hockey game draw? You know. They're Tennessee. Been way down because they jacked up. The tickets With an scholarship seating plan like seventy years ago maybe and so it it really took a nosedive and they had some some tough seasons in there but it used to be a hot ticket. I mean when they were rolling and they won a couple of national titles that was they would generate sales. But now they're really struggling which you know college sports sports in general. The tenants is a big issue but Their tendency is way down now. But when they're hot and winning They can they can pack in a row. That's amazing outstanding. Report Chris it was. It was a phenomenal story for those who want to check it out chip. Thank you very very much I can't thank you enough for coming on. Chip scroggins from the Minneapolis Star Tribune Chip Comeback Soon. Thank you very very much appreciate. It was really really an amazing report there. We'll take a break and get back to your phone calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. Today's horoscope brought to you by GEICO Gemini. You may find yourself struggling with alertness today. That's because you stayed up last night celebrating the hundreds of dollars a year you could save by switching to GEICO. Your struggle will continue well into the afternoon during Philip Status Meeting in which you'll say no phillip. I wasn't snoring. I have severe seasonal allergies. Your presentation was riveting. Well Played Gemini. Geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more. Welcome back Friday afternoon. It is Good Friday Easter weekend. Let's head to Bob in Rochester. New York Bob. Way Out here from a lot of conversation I I'm not seeing this. Covert nineteen is anything any more severe than any other flu season. I'm seeing inflated numbers. I'm seeing a media scam. I'm seeing the globalist attack on the economy and my fellow Americans better wake up before we're slaves to globalist units. Bob Bob let me ask you one or two things here if you don't mind Considering the people making the call here I'm interested. Why you you think. It's a globalist Well GAM this out the people the doctors making the call. Nobody elected them. And who are they? You don't think they can't be shells from the extended attack on President trump economy Who who really who? Who are day. Well we give them first of all. I understand I mean. The president has attacked the credibility of the W. H. O. That okay enough. To offer an opinion there lane try which is never good in terms of the his. Top people I mean there are a lot of people working in positions. He he clearly or somebody clearly chose the two main people which are found she and brick. So I don't I don't know Who made that call? Do you know not at all but you. Can't you have to remember he? He has to go along because if he if I were presented. Come out and say look. I think this is a globalist scan. Because you can't teach me you can't get me through any kind of kind of congressional Ronald Bs. Okay let me let me ask about another part of what us with a Bob. The media explain. Oh please do it. I believe it was Allen Dulles former head of the CIA Said twenty journalists are worth one agent variable mainstream media. Today is nothing but a bunch of talking had globalist agents. Just just like Joe. Mccarthy tried to explain to his begging fifties but he was crazy back then today. He looks pretty on the spots. So you're you're suggesting the entire media The higher heads had up of networks. Have enough polls to tell all the other minions what to say and what to do just that everybody just enough at the top and if you don't play along you don't have a Gig and what would be the end game to do that. Well you got crushed American economy to make us go into a a global receivership of a one world currency to those who. Don't follow theories like this. Would you explain the end? The end game there for those of us who who aren't as learned it as you new world order. I believe that this is the last ace. The globalist throw on the table to grab this country. That was that they firmly had a group of with Fraud Obama in the White House. I don't care who think I don't give a rich behind. Who thinks what I just said. Don't the globalist in a grip on this country with Fraud Obama in the first time and by the way listen. I'm I'm listening. I'm I always try to learn and I'm hearing some things I haven't heard here Do you defined Many people in agreement with you know well because this way I find a lot of people in denial in too scared to admit it I find see I want my Americans to wake up and start thinking for themselves. Quit listening to the idiot box telling them what to think and be scared. You give up your freedoms for the false sense of security. Okay Benjamin Franklin said Hey I give you a republic if you can hang onto it and we are tested right now I do. I refuse to be the generation that went down for tomorrow's children as we sat in our houses scared. 'cause we could not think for ourselves. This isn't a key attack on the economy that was robust. But now it's dead. I'm on my nation has gone from a free country to a socialist martial law experiment and four fricken weeks. Think about Oh no I watch I watch it every day I. I'm I'm pretty well. What's happening or a good day? Thank you too? We will simply pause there because I think I think our friend Had A lot to say and I don't know what People people are. Welcome to my. My philosophy is the same for every caller everyone can I'm the moderator of the show. I try to glean as much from from the calls from guests is humanly possible. That was that was certainly a different type of call than we've had over these last four weeks. So if you're just joining us. We started with an Easter message on Good Friday from Archbishop Merino then we chatted with a lane kiffin and we had a chip on a minute ago. When we come back we will recap some of the highlights of the week and then we'll spend the majority of the final hour hearing from you at eight five two four to seven to eight five.

The FBI Finds Pensacola Gunman's Ties To Al-Qaida
"The Justice Department announced a significant development today in its investigation into the deadly shooting last December at the Naval Air Station. In Pensacola Florida officials. Now say the Saudi Air Force Cadet. Who carried out the attack that killed three sailors had ties to Al Qaeda and our Justice Correspondent Ryan? Lucas joins us now with the latest news. Hey Ryan so how did the Justice Department established the connection between the shooter and Al Qaeda the FBI managed to crack into the Saudi gunman's to locked iphones that agents recovered after the attack and it took the FBI several months to pull that off on their own but they finally did it and it turns out that in this case there was indeed actually a lot of valuable evidence on those phones officials? Say That evidence shows that the gunman who as you said was the Saudi Air Force Cadet in the US for training had significant ties to Al Qaeda's branch in Yemen FBI director. Christopher Wray said the shooter had been communicating with the groups operative since at least two thousand fifteen so before he came to the US and that he remained very much in touch with the group after he came to the United States. Even right up to the night before the attack Ray said the gunman was coordinating with them sharing planning and tactics and providing a chance for al Qaeda to take credit for his actions these iphones that the FBI managed to get into. I mean I remember the Justice Department and Apple have been fighting over whether apple should help break into these phones. Is that battle totally over now that the FBI has managed on. Its own to get into these phones. So Attorney General. William Bar came out swinging against apple several months ago about these phones when this issue first came up bar and Ray both took game at the company again today. They accused apple of refusing to help to break into these devices. Despite the fact that the F. B. I. Had A court order to access. The information apple has pushed back on that it has repeatedly said that it gave investigators all of the relevant data.
