"portland city council" Discussed on The Book Review

"Of characters, the language revolution that made China modern by Jing su. Jane, thank you again for being here. Thank you so much, Pamela. Katherine Schultz joins us now from the eastern shore of Maryland, her new book is called lust and found Catherine. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me. So this is your second book, but before we get into it, I just want you to talk for a moment about your first book. The title alone, of course, is evergreen, but I feel like it's always something that people should think about and didn't drew files once assign it for all incoming Harvard students to read. For those who haven't read it, it's called being wrong. Tell us a little bit about that. That is a book that's about our relationship to error. It's about both how we think about being wrong and then of course how it actually feels to be wrong or more specifically how it feels to realize that we're wrong. And you know it's interesting. You're right that it's an evergreen book that book came out in 2010. I have sometimes thought that I should have published it with a new forward in 2016 when a lot of the country was grappling with how it felt to be radically wrong about a great number of things. But I think that's kind of the human condition. We're always grappling with how it feels to be wrong about things. And what did you want to get at in that book? Given that we're all feeling wrong or should feel wrong that we're wrong, most of the time. You know, it has a couple of things in common with my current book and one of them is that I think what motivated me to write it was a sense of real humility in the face of the endless mysteries of the world and the cosmos and other people. So I suppose what I wanted people to get out of it to the extent that I think that way about my books is just an enduring reminder that our knowledge of everything, including one another is always limited and that it's good to be a little cautious and a little humble in the face of that. That's like a very radical and unusual idea right now Catherine. A good one to bear in mind. When you finish writing that book, did you immediately start thinking, okay, what's next? What's the next book? Oh, not at all. I mean, there's a reason decade plus gap between the two books. I love to write, but I'm a slow writer and I'm also quite picky, even at article length. I'm very careful about what I decide to take on partly because I am slow but partly because I do have to be pretty passionate about whatever I'm writing to feel like I can do a good job with it. So no, I had no sense of, oh, well, you know, I know what's next and I'm turning to it and in fact, it took a very long time for an idea to come along that maybe you say, ah, yes, I definitely want to write that. Well, since you brought up writing articles, I want to mention a couple of them that you've done for The New Yorker. They're often about subjects that I find fascinating, but also scare the hell out of me. And two in particular you did one on stink pugs and one on earthquakes. And I just have to wonder how you find your subjects. What is it that drives you to pursue something as a writer? Well, the stink bugs unfortunately found me. As you said, I live on the eastern shore of Maryland and before that I lived up in the Hudson valley and both of those places turned out to be epicenters of the brown marmorated stink bug invasion. So, you know, it's funny at a certain point. It's kind of a good thing about being rider. You can turn even the literal pestilence of your life into something worthwhile. At some point, after escorting my 7000 stink bug out of the house, I thought, you know, what, even are these creatures? And why are they suddenly all around us and what kind of threat do they pose? So that's how the stink bug story came about. The earthquake piece, I lived in Portland for a while and I have family out there and I'm very attached to the region of the northwestern general. And I was having dinner with a friend out there who at the time was a member of the Portland city council and he absolutely in passing said something like, oh, well, you know, none of us gonna matter when the earthquake comes along and just flattens all of us. And I had no idea what he was talking about. And considering that I did live out there and I care about the region and also read a lot of media and as it happens, love geology. I thought, boy, if I don't know about this epic seismic risk out here, then probably not nearly as many people know about it as they should. So I started digging into it. And now everyone knows the scared. You know, it's funny. I remember we've known each other for a number of years and I remember when you were leaving New York magazine where you were at the book critic and going over to The New Yorker, you were talking about the things that you like to write about and you said that generally science at the time. And these two pieces, although very different subjects, stink bugs, and earthquakes are both about they're both scientific subjects in one way or another. What is it about those subjects? If you had to tie them together, what is it that makes a subject, not just interesting to you personally, but something you really want to spend that time writing since you are, as you say, is still a writer. You know, I suppose it's connected to what I said earlier about this kind of awe at the mysteries that the world confronts us with and the cosmos confronts us with. I do find the natural world boundlessly interesting. And I find that it rewards our attention and our curiosity. The longer you pay attention to what the stranger it gets and the more there is to say about it. So I suppose it's just for whatever reason it's what catches my eye. You know, I love people. I love to write about people who a couple of my favorite stories I've ever written are about individual human beings, and yet very often I find that when I really want to dig into a subject, yeah, it's earthquakes, or it's wildfire, or it's think bugs. Okay, with this book, it started also with an essay, and that essay was about losing things. Talk about that. This book grew out of a piece I wrote in 2017 for The New Yorker that was it was an elegy for my father, but it was very strange kind of elegy because as you say it wasn't just about losing my dad. It was about the whole broader category of all the things we live keys while it's cell phones elections. You name it. And at the time, I didn't really have any idea of expanding it into the book, but it was really satisfying both intellectually and emotionally to place my father's death in the context of this large exploration of losing all kinds of things. And so the moment that I thought, oh, well, you know, there's this kind of mirror image experience, which is the category of discovery and all the things we find and why that's actually unlike losing so pleasurable and so interesting. And at the heart of that, there's the best thing I've ever found, which is my partner. And I thought, ah, okay, well now there's kind of the beginnings of a book emerging from this. So you knew that it would be a book pretty early on then. Not after I finished the article and to be honest, not even quite in the moment when I realized there was this mirror image idea of finding. Actually, what happens I was talking to my partner, we were on a road trip in the middle of the night in the absolute middle of nowhere, Alabama, and talking about the possibility of this pair of stories, you know, a diptych. That's losing my father and losing things in general. And then finding my partner and finding and discovery in general. And that was interesting to me, but still didn't feel like ah, this is a book. And then in the course of that conversation, my partner happened to use this phrase, lost and found. And the mind at two in the morning is a very strange thing and what happened is I absolutely in a kind of resounding way heard the word and like the little connection between those. And I had to kind of interesting experience of falling in love and losing my father in quick succession, so I had been thinking a lot about the way that we're very often in adulthood experiencing more than one thing at once and feeling more than one emotion at once. And the moment that I had the thought of, oh, well, there's actually this third category to explore, which is a conjunction and contradiction of feelings that defines our lives so often. That was actually the moment when I said, okay, it's not a diptych. It's a triptych, and it is absolutely a book. I want to write..

"Released in the last decade and it's incredibly sweet and it's great and we'll do it next hour for you. Oh speaking next hour if you like science and history you must love the history of science of feature at on the obvious freaking strategy for the calvin and it has to do with historical scientific. Developments is utterly logical. It's fantastic it's a tad expensive. But they will do it in our for the armstrong and getty show a lot of you. Don't get our for via the airwaves. But you can get it later today via podcasts. At armstrong and getty dot com salutes. Grab it sounds like witchcraft. I'm telling you it can be done. So ted weasel mayor portland pronounce it wheeler. He admitted that the city didn't quite have the right strategy for the running antifa proud boy speech birds street battle rather on august twenty second. It is clear based on the public outcry on the media outcry on the national front that the strategy was not the right strategy. He said during the portland city council meeting. I think we can all acknowledge that i take full responsibility for it and they said portland was still trying to find the right recipe for handling riots. Somewhere something between an overwhelming police presence and no police presence. What's it's been tested throughout the centuries. There's only one way to deal with a riot. Overwhelming police presence. It's the only thing that works in now. We're not comfortable with that strategy and part on. We don't want anybody to get mad like that mayor weasel. I'm not sure. I understand your question. The phrase i take full responsibility needs to be retired in no longer means anything. There should be a sanction for it. Heavy fines at the very least local residents claim they felt terrorized and abandon his rioters and helmets and gas masks. Some armed with baseball bats. Paintball guns confronted each other spokesman for the portland. Police bureau said authorities monitored the clash from an airplane. Oh that's effective. City officials warn the public in advance. That police would not be intervening in the protest reactions as a reaction claims that police presence exacerbated crowd tensions. That's the unicorn. Ian pot-smoking uber liberal view and portland. The only reason there's violence is because the place there which is just so stupid past riots and protests that have resulted in injuries and property destruction have made the city open to try new plans for dealing with such clashes. The mayor said he does point out quite right. That portland is unique in that way seem to be ground zero for all right groups to come into our town because they know they'll get a response They do but it doesn't mention the hundred twenty five nights in a row or whatever it was that they permitted practically permitted rioting in portland with an underwhelming police presence. Which made it utterly clear to everyone across america. Ted joe biden. Everyone that political violence is okay. And then you end up with january six and you say how did this happen will form a commission. It's unbelievable so president biden is going to release his six pronged approach to take it on. Covert some point today and the leaks out so far or that it's going to demand vaccines from all federal workers and a bunch of masks stuff and He's gonna push for booster shots and we'll probably discuss it tomorrow. After it comes out. I want to examine each and every prong carefully personally before i report on it. Gotcha i thought this article kinda similar on a similar similar thing to what joe just talking about interesting in the wall street journal day about this guy named ben dugan who works for cvs. His job is battling a forty five billion dollars crime spree. I'll just read a little of the article. Ben dougans sat in an unmarked sedan in. San francisco's tenderloin neighborhood. One day last september waiting for the cvs to be robbed he tracked a man entering the store and watches. The fief stuffed more than a thousand dollars of allergy medicine into a trash bag walked out and did the same to other nearby stores before loading them into a waiting van. Mr duggan recall the target was no ordinary shoplifter. He was part of a network of organized professionals known as boosters who and i didn't know this stuff i thought it was just like random people stealing because they figured out you could steal. I didn't know they were this organized. Whom cvs had been monitoring for weeks. The company believed the group responsible has stolen more than fifty million dollars in products. Over five years. Wow from dozens of stores in just in northern california more than fifty million dollars worth of stuff all in northern california. Cvs where they've decriminalized. Crime the job mr dugan the cvs health course. Top investigator was to stop them. Retailers spending millions of years to battle organized crime rings that steal from stores in bulk and then pedal the goods online off and on amazon dot. Com's retail platform according to investigators. Oh my gosh. Because i was thinking i was about to say. They only got a tiny fraction of no fifty million dollars on the street. But now they're more sophisticated than that. It is a menace. That has been supercharged by the pandemic and the rapid growth of online commerce. That is a company did. That's how it became a forty five billion dollar annual loss for retailers in recent days and they think as many as fifty million dollars just from the cvs in northern california so it's an organized they steal all this stuff and they resell it on amazon. Like yeah like it's the mob you know. Granted i'm an old greybeard. But i remember when the police used to hunt down thieves and organized crime kelly. It wasn't that long ago where you wouldn't have been able to walk into three stores within a couple of blocks of each other and steal thousands of dollars with a stuff and just walk out. Somebody at the store would have stopped you but they don't do that anymore because of liability and or the cops twitter responded or they'd have been in the neighborhood. Allergy medicines are good example. So like if you use flonase like i do those little tiny bottles each one of them. It's like forty bucks to two bottles a for forty bucks something like that. It's expensive. it wouldn't be hard to shovel a thousand dollars worth of those into your Your bag and then resell them online right. So you know it's worth pointing out as we have many times the idiotic california law that if it's less than nine hundred fifty bucks worth of goods or so. It's a it's a misdemeanor which is just. It's nothing it's nothing in the criminal justice system these days. You're never going to get a serious sanction for misdemeanor. But these guys they don't even give a damn if they're stealing tens of thousands of millions of dollars worth of stuff. There's no justice. There's no law enforcement there's no justice. It's really quite unbelievable. It's almost worth seeing it happen because it's such an extraordinary experiment. I mean if somebody propose to you at age. Twenty five for instance. There's going to be a state that's going to decriminalize crime and see what happens. You'd think an american state. No you'd think whoever was suggesting that was on drugs. Yeah i know it is. It is crazy. But i don't. I don't know i just. I don't know i don't know anymore i don't know forever gonna come back from this or things ever normal again. Well things ever be normal again. I don't wanna use the phrase new normal no the old double n. i say normal but is that honestly what's going on air you keep because it's unsustainable right. It's not sustainable. They've already had whatever it is. Seventeen walgreens closed in san francisco in the last couple of years. Whatever whatever that numbers it's unsustainable you can't have towns without drugstores because you don't believe in crime anymore right. Well i think this brings us back to the joe getty unified theory of civilizations. They veer from guardrail. Guardrail they passed the sweet spot with no idea. They're in it until they crash into the guardrail on the other side so we were hard on crime. Perhaps over incarcerating people maybe. The war on drugs was Poorly executed in some ways. Maybe it was unfair. Some ways and so. We've decided the only reason people ever commit crimes as their poor downtrodden. So we're going to remove any sanction for committing crimes and we will just crash into the guardrail of uncivilized behavior of of craziness of lack of safety but we have a weird combination in america. That's going on right now. That they don't have another country's it's a two pronged approach of a problem in that. You've got that attitude by some numb nuts. Who think crime is gonna go away or crime is only the fault of capitalism or whatever but like i was thinking i've been in places in mexico city i remember when i was in moscow various places. I've been where they had guards at the door. And you would come in. And they might pat you down or they'd give you the once-over and everything like that and it was pretty clear from the number of guards around the store ain't gonna lowney stealing around here. The difference between like mexico city moscow on the rest of the world in the united states is. You can't stop anybody or they claim all my neck. They arrested me and hurt my neck. And you get to sue the company for a million dollars and you win that exist in other countries. Yeah yeah wow wow. That's the double whammy that you get in america is he. Can't even tackle the guy running out of your store with a handful of diamonds. Because he'll sue you first. You're sticking me with your prongs. I get a double whammy. This show is too well. You know. I guess you got move to a red state or or i don't know i don't know it'll be interesting to see how it plays out. It has been so far. So i want to get to this when we come back because this is kind of a growing topic of conversation treating people differently in hospitals based on a number of things primarily around the vaccine. If you didn't get the vaccine that's your problem of the line and more and more people are buying into this idea.

I mean, isn't that what they feel? The police can't possibly do any good. They're only going to make things worse is what the left has to say. Here's the problem with that. There is a story after story after story after story in cities all across America, where the defunding police movement has been an abysmal disaster. And now the leftists out there that progressives they are beginning to realize again the air of their ways. Here's what they say. A spokesman for the police bureau said officers were monitoring the fight. From an airplane. You heard that right from an airplane. In the days leading up to the opposing protest, the latest in a saga of political conflict that has plagued the city for years. Officials said People should not expect to see officers trying to intervene or keep the sides apart. Lovell said. This decision was made based on the department's significant staffing shortage, legal restrictions when responding to protests and a history of officers presence. Increasing tensions. So I want to get this right. You've got the proud boys and you've got antifa and you're telling me that the presence of the police officers will increase the tensions. Following the clash, Wheeler released a statement deeming the approaches success in mitigating the impact of the demonstrations, noting that the community at large Was not harmed and that property damage was minimal. Well, now he realized, yeah, You know, that may not have been entirely accurate, however, they say, according to The Associated Press during a Portland City Council meeting on Wednesday.

He says it is clear based on the public outcry on the media outcry on the national front that the strategy was not the right strategy. He says. I think that we can all acknowledge that and he says that he takes full responsibility. I guess I've got to ask the question.

The proposal is a response to a new law prohibiting most abortions in Texas. If passed. The resolution would also bar city employee travel to Texas.

In a letter to CEO Andy Jassy, Warren says, when her staff searched such terms as Covid 19 vaccine and pandemic on the Amazon website The top results were books filled with falsehoods. She wants the company to review its search algorithm and release a public report in the next two weeks. Amazon did not respond to requests for comment.

Now comes Brian Calvert reports that school is likely to be the first of many to experience a bit of a covid roller coaster In the weeks ahead. School districts across the Northwest are bent on staying open full time, and the plan is to do what it takes in order to keep the doors open. So even if they do move online, they'll be required to make sure that every student has access to a full school day. Gill is Oregon's state school superintendent, much like here the covid policy for their new school year.

So this is a decision that's made with the local school district and their local public health authority. Features in both states are being mandated to vaccinate.

"All right. Mark Lee Van Kampen Robin show. Jamie Markley, David Van Camp Scott Robbins. Sounds like the city of Portland and the state of Texas or not making nice right now, David and I think Texas is just fine with this If the Portland City Council goes through with what's being proposed, which is to Band, future travel goods and services from the state of Texas because of the new abortion law. The city of Portland right now is thinking. All right, well, we'll throw our weight around here. We'll get this thing overturned in Texas. I know of some delusional leaders, but this is right up there. Wow. Ted Wheeler, AK. Tod Whalen is out there saying yes, we can't do this because we must protect women's health. Dude you've got like, Yeah, you've got like a record homicide and shooting streak going on right now. You have anarchy in the streets almost every weekend. You got bigger fish to fry than trying to take on the Texas state Legislature. I don't know if you heard this, Uh there are people like Bette Midler and Alyssa Milano. Oh, yeah. They're fighting taxes, Are they? Yes. Yeah. They want ladies to go on a sex strike in Texas. Not having sex with the men of Texas until this abortion this unfair Abortion laws over dirt. Are you telling me that if I'm from Texas, Bette Midler will not have sex with me. Not just that she's encouraging. Other women did not have sex with you and every other guy, Texas. I mean, if it was just bet, Miller says, I'm not going to. Well, That's yeah, that's not hard, Is it? That's second to move the needle much. I'm No thinking. There's it's just absolutely ridiculous. Well, all the all the predictable reactions to this including the sex strike and all this and then Yeah, maybe we need to pass a law that Requires men to take care of babies. All that stuff. It's like, hold on a second. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. You're preaching abstinence. You're demanding that men be accountable for their Children. That's right. And you want to keep Portland out of Texas. Quit handing me wins like this. It's not even fun anymore. Yeah, Yeah. Oh, my gosh. I don't know if you guys saw this story, um Because the migrant issue as far as illegal immigration coming up through Texas, our southern border that's still rolling on its not being paid attention to, but it's still happening, right? Yeah, the story that a migrant caravan another one, making its way from, you know, Mexico's southern border. Up to the United States was broken up. Nobody who No Mexican border agents, really, and police in riot gear. Yes, talking like 800 people. Largely central Americans. Haitians, Venezuelans, Cubans. Spent the night at a basketball court. This is about 25 miles up the road from the border city of Tapachula. And so, according to Reuters. Um You had all this commotion. Some parents in the caravan separated from their kids get that And the officials sought to intercept migrants who ran for the banks of the river there. So you've got migrants then hiding and vegetation near the river. Some allege that law enforcement used excessive force as they raided the caravan. Several people detained And according to the story, it was at least the fourth such group forced to disperse by Mexican security forces in a week. My word has come down to Mexico. You got to do something about this. At least somebody is doing something about it. Yes. So where does that happens that Mexico on their own? Did we tell Mexico on the down low? Hey. Got to do something here, but we can't actually say it is the United States because we'll take off all the far lefties. Well, the thing is, is at this point in Mexico, and this was true even a few years ago. You know the the caravans as they make their way through Mexico create an enormous burden on towns and cities that don't actually have the ability to take care of them either. Under the story out of Tijuana few years ago. There are people who are living there and they were like, Hey, these migrant caravans are showing up. We've got suddenly like whatever it was 10,000 people who are just kind of hanging out here. Because Trump won't let him into the United States. They gotta go back. We can't feed them and the sanitation issue. Yeah. Oh, yeah, that's true. It happens everywhere. Over these caravans are So the president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Thank you put a little flagrantly David and roll. They're not going. Okay. Sorry as good as you're working on it. Work in progress. Says. We just can't be detaining. Check it because is must be addressed. Oh, jeez. So he is saying to the Biden administration. Can you help the migrants find work? Like maybe a U. S government fund program. Maybe create hundreds of thousands of jobs in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. Funny that that sounds like the Trump plan, doesn't it? Very interesting. We already know what the root is. That's been figured out. All you.

"That obama pass super week. It led the bankers run roughshod again. And and and right. now we're over leveraged. All those problems have come back in a different form but they told everybody in the press. This is historic and everybody in the press. Wrote who story financial reform. As if it's fixed and in this case we're fighting back against texas. We will do everything we can. They will do everything. They can observe inauguration but what what are they doing. So i mean i was talking about airlifting the women out of texas to make sure they can. We can protect their rights. if there's no clinics that are open heavy. Pretty bad are we to do that. I would have said in the national guard. What oh okay. I don't want them. Defaced the property of the clinics. Well i don't either. And i don't want anybody's life in danger but you can't brag about doing the least and then tell us you're doing the most well. Apparently you can as long as you have the mainstream media your us. Yeah that's exactly right all right. Well we gotta take a break. But when we come back up portland the city of portland might retaliate against texas but doesn't mean anything we'll give you our views on that and more when we come back back on. Ty t. jaeger burien. Don't often give the full names. I just did it. All right mourners. All right well. It's like a little bit about portland. The portland city council is set to vote on essentially boycotting the state of texas over. Its anti choice. Law which effectively bans the vast majority of abortions in the state now The question is can they do it and will really have any type of impact Now portland mayor. Ted wheeler said that the city council will vote on whether to ban trading goods and services with texas and also bar state employees from official business travel as well the resolution if passed would also bar city employees traveled to the state mayor wheelers office said that the resolution would be in effect until taxes either withdraws the abortion law or it gets overturned in court. Let me give you a little bit of mayor. Wheelers statement on this. He says quote. The law does not demonstrate concern for the health safety and wellbeing of those who may become pregnant. This law does not recognize or show respect for the human rights of those who may become pregnant. The law rewards a private individuals for exercising surveillance and control of over others bodies. violates the separation of church and state and it will force people to carry pregnancies against their will and he's right about that It also says women to carry their pregnancies to term even if they've been the victim of rape or incest so it's a pretty extreme law to say the least but i also want to note that It appears that if they do pass this resolution. It'll mostly be symbolic. So how much business does portland do with texas. A quick search portland's current three volume. One thousand nine hundred four page budget returned only one mention of texas but that was a reference to a highway improvement project which included south west texas street in portland. The texas economy by the ways the ninth largest in the world and that's according to the texas economic development corporation Texas exports about three hundred fifteen point nine billion dollars worth of goods and services to countries outside of the united states each year including exports like petroleum and coal products So i like that. The city council is considering making a stand. Even if it's just a symbolic one But just know that even if they do vote in favor of this resolution and overwhelmingly pass it. It is unlikely to really have an impact on the decisions of texas lawmakers who were trying to appeal to their rabid right wing voters. Yes so. I still love it. I think it's the right idea and sometimes talked about building a change machine here at ti. T. and of course it's a funny phrase right. Nobody knows what it means. But what part of what. It means right So you know. Hey listen. I'm here all week. Coming up with these brilliant ideas noble part of what it means and eventually i hope people understand What we're going for here is for example. I'd like to follow suit. If we were larger corporation. Be easier to do and say. Hey we're not going to do business in texas either and we'd have to figure out what that means et cetera. But then i would love to build. A coalition of small businesses saying we will not go to texas. That would have more impact in portland starts this. I would love to help coalition of cities that say we're not going to do business with texas anymore and that would have a huge impact. Both those things would. So that's part of why i'm trying to grow this into a bigger network so we can have bigger impact in a lot always including financial. Because that's the only thing that really moves the needle especially for conservatives. She goes their donors are pretty much business interests as so if you hurt the business interests or your effective business interests then you could affect laws like this and then all of a sudden. Republican politicians are a little bit more. Careful how they tread at this point. They're not at all careful because greg abbott. The governor of texas was asked about the fact that there was no exception to rape or incest. Zana pointed out in this law and he said no. It's okay 'cause we're we've got a plan. We're going to wipe out rate from texas. So yeah because especially the republican party. They've they've shown themselves to be People who take rape and the mistreatment of women very seriously. Yeah yeah and reap is not wiped out anywhere on the planet. It's an absurd thing to say is the kind of thing you say if you have nothing else left to say which is greg. abbas situation. because they're saying basically if you don't carry a rapist's baby to term we're gonna have a whole bunch of vigilantes in the state of texas to come after you in the clinic so you're going to try to hound you and bankrupt the people trying to help you now. The woman by the way just to clarify can't be sued clinics but the clinics can and the woman would have to be part of those proceedings Which would be all you have to track. The women violate their privacy and be totally gross to them. Okay and of course the effective it is to make them carry the zygote all the way to a term and take care of it for eighteen years basically turn the woman into channel an indentured servant of the state That's why people compared to handmaid's tale. Because you're using the women for their bodies and not asking for permission but yes the clinics. Pay the money. Yep all right one more story before we go to our break Because nike stepped in it and I don't know how they didn't see this coming. So.

"Before we get to portland. I would just like to give an update to the texas the texas heartbeat law that is in effect as of right now in texas. The justice department actually said that it will not tolerate violence against anyone who is trying to obtain an abortion in texas as they explore of course a challenge whatever their options will be for a challenge to the state law. So merrick garland said the justice department would quote protect those seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services Under a federal law known as the freedom of access to clinic. Entrances act And again i mean. I don't think it will be too much longer before we do. See the justice department Hand something over to texas file some sort of a lawsuit against us. Do you have your with i. I wrote a bill that governors didn't oklahoma signed against sex trafficking but the moment he signed my bill the bill he signed right before me was the heartbeat building oklahoma. And that's about to come into effect and become law. So you're going to see other states so i know for a fact. Oklahoma coming right on texas texas's heels here for it. Become you know the law. They signed the heartbeat. Bill and others are going to come to. Texas is not going to stand alone on this for long. Sarah this other states. It's going to be able to bolster support. And i personally think v wait gets turned honestly really. I think we're gonna see it. I we have a window. You're much more optimism. Because i'm telling you. I think watch. There's a there's a slow going to catch them by surprise because there is a whole lot of other things because this snuck in like. How in the heck did that happen in texas well newsflashes already signing oklahoma. I was there for the signing. Okay so in other states have come into so. I think now the people are speaking up. I'm very positive about that. Wow yeah well you know. It's interesting the language that maryland uses. Because i i feel like i mean. It's already violence against other people already illegal so it is interesting that they're like well we're not gonna tolerate violence against the people who are committing violence against their babies. We're not gonna tolerate that. It's like. I'm pretty sure like you're not allowed to assault people already. I don't think we need justice department until they go threaten us yeah But let me okay so let me throw the other story about this into the mix of the portland city council Plans to vote on prohibiting business transactions with the state of texas over this new law and They said there. They want to ban trading goods and services and bar city employees business travel to texas which is weird. I didn't realize that they even had a government. They just i mean. There's like a great picture of portland. Where where's where's this. Where's the city council there. Where's the mayor there. Where's the city government there. I don't see them so. I'm just shocked about that part. We're not going to send any of our zoo to texas. Thank you thank you for not michael. And he watches the show and he's a businessman in portland. He's trying to help save that city. He's probably gonna protest because he travels to texas a lot but no hey keep him. Keep on their. Keep the crazy californians. Keep them all. We're pretty good year in texas. We don't need any of that here. Well they the portland city council stands unified in. Its belief all people should have the right to choose if and when they carry a pregnancy Pretty sure you choose that whenever you do the act And that the decisions they make are complex difficult and unique. To their circumstances the band will be in effect until the state of texas withdraws. It's unconstitutional ban on abortion or until it is overturned in court city legal counsel is currently evaluating legal aspects of this proposed resolution. All my god. Eric not the communists coming to texas we do. I don't care where you're at on the subject of bush and that's the silver lining while it. Is that a bunch of brain lift off. We can't go to texas. Thank you like if nothing else if nothing else. That is a positive thing Pretty sure it probably goes one way when it comes to trade in portland especially when it comes to oil and other things. I don't think that's a he'll that they certainly want to die on. This is more just political. Posturing is certainly all that. This doesn't mean certainly anything. Look i don't know what's going to come of this. Definitely with the federal government evolved. Hopefully if nothing else more we get more civil than that. He ended texas stock to get enough of the you know the lower extremities to say screw the federal government and we've become a nation state on. Oh i would love that. That would be fantastic and maybe this will be the the tipping point where the federal government finally gets the toilet go through themselves because that what what what can they do. What are they gonna do. You can't do that. We're going to do what now. I love what you just said. Hey we're not going. Send anything your way anymore. We don't need any. Hey how about. We stopped sending anything. How are we turn valves. The funny thing about like when it comes to like. Oh these these pro would not pro-trade at all. Let me say that. Have never been pro-life reach ray but certainly with the like migration thing we're seeing now with the vaccine is a will you notice that he's whole open borders free free movement freedom of movement. Soon as you get to talk about vaccines and now we're talking about abortion and they wanna stop moment of people from moving around at disagrees with the mess hilarious out of works out like that. What's the first thing they did was shazad shop. When they secured that perot. Yeah we need power. We need food. Yeah like okay. Let's can we make some deals. We called ourselves autonomous. But what that meant exactly. Yeah exactly i. This reminds me of all of these leftists on twitter. That have just been you know freaking out still about the new texas law and they're like wall truth to ban or to see that we hate it we're gonna stop having sex with men and like great. I think that you stop having you're responsible. Sex with multiple partners sucking having abortions voted on so are alternatives abortion downright thing. Who knew ask bill. This is a great. We're something a lot of times you threaten me with a good time. No like out here at texas for those of us to those of you. The guy who wants to show a lot of the movement when you talk about pro-life movement in this in in a state at the forefront of it are women. I've hated how they've crafted this moron. Discussion as men ruled right. It's like. I don't think you understand what's really going. Most of the women that the people that are not speaking so much about this. That i've known in my life have all been women for the most part because it's so close to home certainly for them so they need to dispel that narrative that it's men doing something to the women's bodies. There's no women that are at the forefront of any eric again. It's because they bought into this fake feminist movement in this country that the feminists in this country are really about women's rights in. They're not they're about themselves. It's like you know a self elevating movement it is women fighting this fight absolutely predominantly in texas. All right. we've got more to come. I want to thank our sponsor built bar. So if you're like.

"Wheeler and the Portland City Councils say that they are going to quote, cut trade and travel with Texas. And I think you know why. So this is the This is the thing that's become really standard over the last. I don't know, however many years And you saw a lot of it. Obviously with HB two when that was going on, you'd have, like the state of California will not approved travel to North Carolina unless it's pre approved emergency or something. And then You're like, Okay, So what? What is? What does that cover? So you guys will not officially send anyone from California unless it's an emergency. And especially a government. Official. I don't know A lot of people in North Carolina who want California government officials running around over here because they'll touch stuff they'll mess stuff up. They can't help it. So now the state of Texas has to deal with the city of Portland, not wanting to do it. It's just a giant empty gesture. And I'll explain why. Because For core fundamental things where people would actually travel. Right? That they'll go ahead and approve that. And then people will travel anyway. Don't you ever seen a follow up story of this? California has I think that you have, like God? A dozen or more states where, uh, where officials don't travel, too, because at various points they California didn't like something that another state did with their laws. And decided that they were going to, um you know somebody was going to make a statement at the Legislature. Or on the you know, Los Angeles City Council or whatever it was, and it's all meaningless. So they get out of sending somebody. If a conference happens to be somewhere, that's you know, not necessary, and even then. You've seen exemptions for stuff like that, Because quote unquote, it was important to core functions or something. So I'm sure that Texans are waking up this morning and they're just devastated. So good for you, Ted Wheeler. Right. 8889347874 the phone number. Speaking of devastated Um all right, well, hang out with this. Yeah. J. What's up? Hey, Casey, Um, this situation of leaving $90 billion of equipment. Has just made the Taliban the fifth most powerful military in the world. And if that isn't eight and and comfort to the enemy, I don't know what is. I don't they're saying waiting till 2022 when the Republicans gain to, uh Power in the House and the Senate. But this is this is not right. Craig Biden is not incompetent. He's criminal. Is criminal and needs to be impeached immediately along with Pelosi and Harris, because they're in common. They're complicit in a law in this situation, and I was going to ask you What is the possibility of a military intervention over President Biden's head would just be considered treason or mercy. So you're you want a coup, sir? No, No, I don't want to cool, but it's something needs to be done and need to be as they say, What do you think? Military competence. What? That's military intervention, sir. That's a coup in Afghanistan. Afghanistan, Not in the United States. Casey in Afghanistan, Okay, I'm sorry. I misunderstood. I thought you were implying that the military do something here. And I was going to give you this looking for my so long. Yeah, I'm not looking for martial arts. Yeah, Yeah. Okay, um Why does the with would that be considered treason or mercy? Because, uh, over to override President Biden? I say, President, I say President, I use that term loosely because he's not in charge. If they cut the courts, the president Biden, he would, he would drop like howdy duty or Pinocchio. And that's all that's all in deference to Howdy Doody in Pinocchio because they have a greater linguistic dexterity than Joe Biden. Well, look, you know, I tend to try to deal in the practical side of things on the practical side of things is The impeachment, it has been turned into a It's silly putty at this point, obviously, evidence it's all you have to do. To example that is compare the Ukraine phone call with the Afghan phone call. Hey, would you help me? So, but you know, it does matter who's in charge, so You know, that's that's the reality of it. Do you really think Magnus in charge? Yes, I do. Yes, you know, because he's the president. We disagree on that, then. Thanks, Casey. You disagree that he's the president. Disagreed. It is in charge. Someone's pulling strength. He's the price. I understand that and that just just because he's president doesn't mean he's in charge. Casey The the power the powers that be controlling interest. Obama. People in the in the back in the, uh, in the In the In the back of the scene, the scenery are pulling the strings. I mean, really? I say, Check your watch or take a nap. But as far as well in this country. He's not running this country, Casey. No, but he is because he's the president. I understand where you're going. No, no, no, I'm not going anywhere, sir. Here's what I'm here is that and I appreciate the call J. I'm not going to sit here and and After the The hyperbole and the, um After what I just witnessed during the previous administration and where politicians are willing to take this stuff. In the sense that no Joe Biden is in charge. Do Does he have people that are Are definitively dipping their toe in the water to influence what it is he's doing and has he probably yielded. Saying, You know what? This. You're more of an expert here. Um yeah, that sounds good. Let's go ahead and do that. Is there some collusion if you will not, maybe not, in the legal sense, but in the the actual sense of where There are certain platform items and pet projects that Joe Biden is willing to be.

"Of Portland. This was published to Twitter. The Twitter accounts already been taken down, but the way Twitter works, you could still see a link to the video. You could see that the account existed. It's it's all there. It's all up on our block. We've documented it for you. If you'd like to take a look at that. Um Wheeler initially indicated common cause with the far left. Last year, he marched with these people, and he got tear gassed. As I just explained the county district attorney over there in Portland, Mike Schmidt consistently declined to prosecute rioters. Weird, not punishing these people is caused it to get worse and worse. Who could have seen that happening? Guys Repeat after me. I've said this so many times on this show, you will never be woke enough for the rage Mob. You'll never be woken up for him. Apple COMPUTERS Starbucks, the MBA. These people all claim to support black lives matter. They throw money at these organizations to help bail out there. Activists and TIFA PLM. It's basically the same group of people. Oddly enough, when these people go out and riot what did they destroy the apple store, the Starbucks? They don't care. You will never be woke enough for the rage Mob Portland City Council to funded its police department. Since then, crime has skyrocketed in what was once a very peaceful city. 10 years ago. Portland wasn't like this. I first encountered a group of the anti fur activists terrorists, if you will, That's what I would call them. Whatever you want to call him back in May of 2012, I was about to move to Houston. I attended many political rallies. When I was a young pull it in my twenties as a talk radio producer and in Chicago, I would go travel to political protests and I would interview people and normally, it was funny. Usually I would go and I would try to ask funny questions and elicit funny reactions and they'd either get mad or they'd laugh. You know, depending on what the joke was that I was telling him back in May of 2012. There was the G 12 summit. It came to Chicago and I went and interviewed these people. We knew political protest would be rampant throughout the city. So I wrote a mountain bike through downtown Chicago where I encountered, among other things, people in masks actively trying to destroy the city. I was 2012. Nobody knew what Antifa was back then I could see I've gone long on this segment. Quick break more on this when we get back Kenny Webster,.
