"And unfortunately i think a lot of that also has to. Do you know if we were to just kind of look over the last fifteen years with the rise in social media and the drive around celebrity culture us evangelical. We have our own streams of that. You know and there's a lot. That's that's kind of appealing. I don't know about you. But i can definitely tell you. I've had a profile picture of me holding. You know a brown kid. That's not my own. If i could just be that transparent and honest and i don't think it's healthy and i don't think i was respecting that child's right to identity and unfortunately i was probably not the only person that had a picture with that particular kid you know could have been actually hundreds of other people so i think there's a lot to the emotional piece. I think when people from the church go on the term mission strips they have this emotional connection. I don't know about your story. But i know i had that i had that feeling of. Wow i've done something significant and even though it actually wasn't healthy you can become addicted to those you know chemicals running around in your brain and and value feel like. Oh no i have the sense of purpose. Because i'm gonna go you know minister to orphans in such and such country so as far as why not the us you know. It's actually kind of interesting. After i worked in tanzania for several years i moved back to california initially. It's where my wife. And i are both from and i ended up getting a job at a local child. Welfare agency actually worked in the foster care system we were a community based organization not faith-based i networked with people from like the pride foundation and you know of so like people other in the community other than just churches but it included churches and i would speak at churches.

"Can apply to us for this funding and we respond we try to respond within two weeks and it it's just a pretty amazing programme so I would say that that and that's our most recent initiatives sounds pretty impressive idea yeah I think I mean it's important because the average granting period is months you know for any any foundation and sometimes you can't wait that long it is that an idea that you guys came up with your own or did you find this somewhere else in the country that's doing the same kind of thing or other organizations to that are I'm actually quite a few rapid response plans have been created especially in the last five years mmhm mmhm it sounds like something out a non profit might have to be ready to go on but it's kind of hard difficult I would say to get that all women who will wheels in motion for something like that but since you're doing it on well especially when there are still responding to everything the worst responding to before you know it's not like those used in girl right they all this and just it's it's on top of everything that that they're doing and and it's putting a strain on communities and it just is shown us just the resilience of a dip so many different groups within our communities especially LGBTQ immigrants and refugees but if faced challenges on so many different friends under this administration and and so we just want to do everything we can to make sure that they have the resources in the community support necessary in order to actually make change in and react to not just react but think proactively about how they can continue their own movements forward excellent what another initiative maybe we'll talk about that's a grand yeah yeah that I am the community grants program that we're in right now I just got finished reading my grant applications and I I think that's it honestly the hardest part of my job it's the hardest part of the staff's job it's the hardest part of our community reviewers is reading grant applications and deciding how to allocate resources because all of them are so incredible some of the things happening on the ground or their inventive their innovative they're compassionate they're brilliant it just shows you it every single time I just get this reminder that like yeah our community has the solutions to the challenges that were facing we just need the money for it and and surprise foundation gets to give out some of those resources that the community has invested in us and so it's a huge responsibility if there is a huge responsibility for us and every single person that reads that grant applications some of our grantees from last year was I've been encouraged with there was a grantee organization that was working on creating a host home program for youth experience homeless youth experiencing homelessness there were a couple of arts organizations here in Seattle there were many in eastern Washington in in Wenatchee in Yakima in Montana it's every every corner of Montana and it it's just very encouraging a lot of it is around on health care access for trans folks in rural areas overall it's all of it is really inspiring and it's hard to read the grant application we are talking this morning with Caitlin Kellogg from pride foundation about the the money they give out so transform this community in in beautiful ways to make us all stronger and better we are going to run out of time before too long cable so I kinda want to get to advocacy you guys do a lot about that might still needs to be done can you touch on that what pride foundation does here in the last couple of minutes yeah absolutely so I would it's so you may remember the fight here for marriage in two thousand twelve John Washington and I along with different advocacy efforts you have to have public education you have to be able to tell people stories data shows that people who know someone who is gay or who knows the stories of someone that is gay is more than twice as likely to support the equality of that person to support the equality of LGBTQ people and and so in order to do that we had to share stories we had to lift up stories of people in ways that we were going to change hearts and minds so that we could eventually change people's votes it Washington was the first state where we passed marriage at the ballot on which was a really big deal it shows that we have public overwhelming public support for marriage and so that was a huge deal in two thousand twelve and so we ran the public education part of that campaign called by marriage matters Washington and we sort of took notes from from that took the cue from mass situation and in two thousand fifteen I'm with you and in two thousand sixteen actually we faced an initiative that was trying to repeal part of the non discrimination ordinance that had been in place for ten years trying to repeal the discrimination protections against transgender people yeah so it was they were I fifteen fifteen and I fifteen fifty two and and I think a lot of that was trying to understand how few people realized that they knew someone who is transgender that transgender people our in our lives they are our neighbors they are friends they are family members and and the and they're not they were not safe in the bathrooms and I think that we had to get this that story and we had to get people stories outside of bathrooms to help people to understand the full lived experiences and the full diversity of the transgender community and so we started a public education campaign called transform Washington and we so we sort of ran again the public education arm of that campaign and that his blossomed into a fully integrated part of pride foundation as our public education project that continued well beyond the scope of those campaigns which likely those initiatives did not go through still have a fully inclusive non discrimination ordinance in Washington but that was because of stories like people needed to hear the stories of transgender people they needed time to understand they needed to be put in the situation of you know what what I do with my kid for transgender what would I do if my husband or wife became like came out as transgender and and try and build empathy and try and brought in the understanding of what it means to be LGBTQ yeah and so that's telling those stories through and educating people is I think the best way it takes a long time look like it's been happening but it will happen and I encourage people to go to your website to learn more pride foundation dot O. R. G. the there's so much more that there that would then we can talk about here Caitlyn what we are out of time thanks for being here but also I want to thank you on behalf of all the foundation is done and scholarships and grants and just getting people educated thank you so much thank you for having me we have been talking today with Caitlin Kellogg from pride foundation again I want to coach people one more time pride foundation dot O..

"Of resources on there and lots of information applying for scholarships can be started there too right the entire application is online and I'll give a quick quick plug it opens on October eleventh every year which is national coming out day it's an easy way to remember it what a coincidence yes all right and yeah everything is done online and another cool thing about both our scholarship review and our grant review is that it is community reviews so not only do people from the community applied for the scholarships people from our community free to scholarships and review scholarships and so people who are applying get their reassurance that it's not some people in a foundation and I tower on the top right hill or reading these applications it's community members among them and I should say that every single dollar that we award tore scholarship program is fundraised from our community from our communities as well that that's a big question I was going to try to get to is is how that money is raised in the first place is got to be a huge undertaking hand then this getting to decide to divvy it out that's gonna be kind of a fun job although pretty good I mean important an intense actually to review scholarship applications some responsibility there how how do you let me go back to the fundraising part how does pride foundation raise so much money that they can give that much out every year who is that that must be an entirely subset of your organization right yeah I mean again it's a team effort like it is it's not only our staff it's our board it's our volunteers at all the people that host events for us it's a business is out in the community it's B. get foundation grants that we leverage from other funders it so I would say but I'm about eighty percent of it comes from individuals every single year yeah that's impressive yeah it's huge it's we were hugely blessed to be surrounded by a community of super generous individuals who who have partnered with us for years we have a pretty incredible like founders list of donors that have been donating since the beginning people who have been donating for over fifteen years and ten years and volunteering for that time to but yeah I would say it's it's a team effort definitely but as a community foundation community means those resources come from our community and another part of this I don't know if you keep track of graduate so people have had their scholars now they've been you can do this quite a long time do you track come and say Hey did this could become successful I I have never even thought about that when I had my own kids applying for scholarships that you know you have responsibility you're taking this money to be successful with it M. T. India track that so that next time you can say yes people of worked in this role gone into this field been successful at so we're gonna issue another scholarship of the summit Arnold is done on a wine even asking them no no I think it's a good question I mean we do so in a totally it's definitely on our list of ambitions for the future to track that in terms of data but anecdotally you know we see that we continue to have a lot of contact with the scholars that week give scholarships to there that's one of the cool things about pride foundation is none of our work is separate like the people who think that executive directors of the grantees that we give grants to you are often Peck former scholars like people that we work with our public education and storytelling campaigns are often former scholars we have board members that are former scholars many of our volunteers are former scholars and so we keep in touch with them a lot of the time SO anecdotally they're still they're they're still doing it that doesn't surprise me that that's the answer because like you said you because of the building community since the eighties and and it really is a community that's kind of cool that that that is is building continues to build well and you talked about granted let's talk about grants now that's a little different not isn't it you get to give out money to other organizations right community groups and organizations that are doing what you hope is positive things right for the cause or for I mean how are they selected grantees is it with a calm so that might work grantees that is that is correct we have a couple of different grant programs I think that probably makes the most sense to talk about two of our great programs one of which is our rapid response fund and our rapid response fund was on I we created in two thousand sixteen during a very difficult and trying political period that is still facing us today and just as a response to growing community needs and so many different areas whether it was a mental health responses and taking care of communities that were being attacked in different ways or safety planning for leaders to how to respond you can imagine that all of the different political challenges that we faced have had real implications for for grantee organizations we have grantee organizations that are you know helping to organize some of the rallies that you see around town summing helping to you like I said response to the mental health needs of communities who have been attacked there's been rises in violence that community groups on the ground of how to react to and those all of those reactions require funding.

"Me today is the communications and outreach manager of pride foundation Caitlyn Kellogg Caitlyn welcome thanks for coming today thank you for having me Gary I'm so glad to have you I haven't had pride foundation here for a long time I've been meaning to soak man I got this one finally done I want to talk a lot of people know about pride foundation but not everybody and not everybody knows the story you guys have been around for like thirty years now and we're gonna talk about giving away money this morning but before we get it in the nuts and bolts of that Caitlyn how about I don't know a bit of background on what pride foundation does I mentioned you thirty years that's got some things behind you could probably go on for half hour about just its history but yeah give us the once over for folks sure I'm so proud condition is an L. G. B. T. hero so lesbian gay bisexual transgender and queer community foundation and we were founded in nineteen eighty five and I would see the origins of pride foundation I really better suite a we were found in the midst of the HIV and aids crisis and trying to combat you know misinformation and a lack of resources and a government that wasn't really addressing the issues that were impacting our communities and costing lives and livelihoods and stripping people of their ability to live fully and so what the community came together around this rallying because to say we need to be able to find the resources and the solutions that can solve the problems for our own community and so pry foundation was pardon and and so out of that you know sad and devastating time where people are literally dying came this community and this home for people and that sort of it's continuing to drive us in our work today and since then since nineteen eighty five so thirty four years ago we have given away over seventy four million dollars which is really exciting and that comes in the form of scholarships we have a scholarship program for LGBT Q. student leaders throughout the northwest and we just have to be studying are living in the northwest and so they can be studying anything last year we had people that were going into welding we also had people that were you know going into their PhD psychiatry in child psychiatry so it really runs the gamut and we just want to support those future movement leaders and grants we have a grant program and I'll tell you a little bit more about that later and but that's just investing in the organizations that are driving our movement forward on the ground every single day and then we do advocacy especially in legislative periods where our communities are facing attacks on our rights and then we have a public education campaign to which I'll tell you about in a little while you know that that is such a wide encompassing a lot and mission you guys have but it is all I would say necessary because like you said thirty five years ago or almost forty now when HIV and aids sort of was a mystery to a lot of and then once we realized this is affecting the gay community and nobody was really do anything except the gay community had to kind of come together and say we need to support ourselves and then get other people to support us up that's just been a long time coming so in it that works not done so anyway still exist I guess right yeah and progress doesn't just happen no it doesn't Hubble people move it forward and how about yourself you must've been an infant is how did you end up working for pride foundation yeah great question white was raised in Spokane Washington's on the side of the state and I knew from a young age that I was different but I identifies clear and it was not easy growing up in Spokane it is three hundred miles from Seattle and it feels like a totally different universe for for youth especially in the nineties when I was growing up and I think that you know looking back I didn't really know there was an L. G. B. T. community you know there were there were we had a a good gay straight alliance at my school but it wasn't well attended nobody really ever went to it and it wasn't well supported by faculty and staff at all and so my idea of community turned into you and this is going to date me by myspace meetups and you know like my space world new fangled thing yeah they're waiting for you but they were sort of like rotating a secret meetups for a part of a secret group and they didn't really know about the location until it was going to happen and it wasn't just for youth and it was a lot of substance use and I like I knew I went to them and I was like oh is this what the queer community is you know and I and I didn't really know that they were resources available because I wasn't aware of them in a and we didn't I didn't live in a place where they were available to me and so when I moved to Portland and started going to school for social work I started working for aid direct service organization that served L. G. B. T. youth at youth youth drop in center and I worked with I worked as the homeless youth liaison between them and the local shelter and and a program and it was just like I still remember you know going there and looking around and seeing like queer youth hang out with each other and being in this really supportive and safe environment where they were like playing board games and playing pool and having drag shows and like having all these dolls around them that were just there to support them and all of the decision making and all of the steering of what the group was going to look like was done by the youth and the youth were trusted and they were empowered to be their own leaders for this group and and I got to be a part of it and looking around I was like this is what's possible when this is how you can feel supported when they have a group of people around them supporting them and when they can have resources available to them and they were proud foundation grantee so when I moved to Seattle I knew exactly who I wanted to work for and it was pretty Fundacion that's awesome that's a terrific circular stone yeah for yourself personally but but like you said Spokane and then you mentioned earlier just barely pride foundation the north west so what how the pride foundation now encompasses how much of the northwest so if Portland people in Portland getting grants I mean what would you serve I guess our long way for me to say question who do you Sir we are in Alaska Idaho Montana Oregon and Washington and one of the cool things upright foundation is that we have a staff person and all of the states where we serve so are all the states that we serve and not not a ton of foundations try to have that you know sort of like that on the ground staffing embedded in the communities and all those all the people that we have in the states were born and raised in those states you know it's not like we hired someone in Seattle and said you're going to Alaska yeah we take care of those people exactly it's like of the community driven by community people that know their communities that they're serving and have connections there too and are you able to let's say Washington have an office in more than one part of each state can you be in Tacoma Seattle Spokane I don't know Pullman in on I don't know but it does a lot of traveling yeah yeah and if you think about Alaska to I mean a lot of it isn't even connected by roads right smaller plane or sled dog back again from one town to another specially in the winter you can conduct teller or Luna cleat ran from anchorage or Juno no I would say that a lot of it is driven not only by staff but we have board members and every states we have teams of volunteers called community advisory councils in every state and and they're also called leadership action teams depending on the state but it's just incredible that it's not just one person it's an entire community of people and that's what being around since nineteen eighty five has been able to get us as isns higher network of people that were trying to have help support and drive forward and it's not like pride foundation is not in the center of it we're trying to make sure that we're connecting the leaders that are already on the ground driving movements that are already on the ground and making sure that we're talking from state to state to make sure that it's a unified in every way that can be and then and some of the states we do have more than one staff person so in Oregon we have two staff people and in Washington we have a staff person also in Ellensburg so now I'm kind of going off my pre got let's go hand in hand yeah then maybe lead us back to where I want to talk but we're talking about divers I mean spread out communities trying to connect and I guess the internet can now sort of do that for you but the loneliness of some people can feel in the dislike you mention your own story growing up man that's got to be tough and the reputation out thirty five some years of pride foundation saying it there is a place for you you can find I'm thinking of one or two teenagers in a lonely town in Alaska or eastern Washington to find that community and pride foundation can be that but it's still gonna be tough beans so spread out yeah well our our motto is an organization that has been for a long time is be who you are where you are and it's this idea that I'm a someone in Bozeman should not have to leave Bozeman Montana in order to be fully themselves yeah someone in Talkeetna Alaska should not have to leave Talkeetna you know like we I shouldn't have had to leave to Spokane and and all of the different various places in every single corner every region they are hugely diverse and that's the vision that word we're trying to achieve well then so with your scholarship program let's see how I tied it in there you can Infor era I don't encourage and educate people and build an off leaders for the future is that kind of the goal of what the scholarship program is for L. G. B. T. in Q. people they would say yeah out there somebody supports me wants me to be who I am financially and I can get to collagen and I don't know what to tell us about the scholarship and who those people are aware you how you find them and how they apply to me even if you know it's time to apply again for people with listening maybe a I can I'm one of those people who yeah the scholarship program it's a big deal you said seventy some million dollars over the years has been given out yeah I'm the scholarship program I think it's this year it's five million I think it's about five billion that we've got to this year three if this scholarship program and like I said earlier our scholars are so diverse they are from every single background and have so many different lived experiences that really runs the gamut so you you don't necessarily look on an application I want to be a lawyer to defend gamble as being people yeah now just like you said be who you are exactly I mean we're we're trying to drive the movement forward and we're also trying to expand opportunities available for LGBTQ individuals and allies and that's that part is really important to us because much of the progress.

"Seemed that way, but I'm innocent Renaissance's the fallout from the interview was damaging for Venda Veld, many people who saw the news that night say it made him, look guilty. He seemed tired and look down at the ground when he spoke his words, I never heard her struck people as odd there was and still his much discussion of. Whether the press at the moment without breaking any rules. Nevertheless, went too far crossing the line of fairness. But what the police do know is that one person who watched the news that night, phone them stunned? At what she saw the woman who had seen Jovan walking on college street at around nine twenty five on the night of the stabbing saw Vandevelde on television and started shaking. I got chills. She said, I didn't know Vandevelde I go home and turn on the news. And I see him this guy talking to reporters. He was blonde with glasses. I could not believe what I saw I went back to my notes and saw the description. I wrote that I saw a blonde man with glasses, the man. She claims she saw walking behind Jovan near Phelps gate, the night of the murder, so closely resembled Vanda Velz image on television that she believes it was him that this is a crucial element of the police case against Vandevelde. A tentative I- dentist Asian that could be highly biased by the television news context in which it was made. It is obviously not enough for an arrest in response to the claims of this witness David, Greg Berg says, flatly it was not Jim. I miss everything about Suzanne says, Rebecca Jovan who is in the middle of her freshman year at college when her sister was killed when she left for college. I cried for weeks on end. I feel the same way now. But now I know this perations permanent. She says, I often think about the way in which Suzanne died and the questions that will never be answered. And that really traumatizes me I cannot deal with that at all. I just have to let it pass when it comes to my mind, Suzanne Jovan family has said, little publicly about the investigation into where death indeed her parents spoke Vanity Fair with deep reluctance, and then only clarify aspects of their daughters. Life that they thought were important understand for us. Their remains a void in our life, that can never be filled. Thomas and Donna Jovan say the Jovan not mentioned Vandevelde name public. But an anguished letter from Donna Jovan, though was published in Connecticut. Newspapers on April fourteenth seemed to many to be directed at Vandevelde smother I personally appeal in this open letter to the mother of Susan's killer, assuming that she resides in the greater New Haven area. She wrote as a moral and rational human being, you will not be able to live with yourself. If you withhold knowledge or suspicion of your son's complicity come forward to the police talk to them, demand that your son tell the truth lowest, Vandevelde says a friend saw the letter but she didn't read the whole thing. She is trying to keep on with her life. This has been awful for her. Ever since he. Oh, cancelled van Velde's courses for the spring term last January claiming that it would be a distraction to students to have a murder suspect in the classroom. He has had little to do other than focus on the horror of being the chief suspect in a savage killing he insists he didn't commit. His friends who believe in his innocence say that Vandevelde is beyond desperate at this point. Jim has got to be formally absolved or else, his life will forever be under the cloud says kin spits barred James Thomas dean of admissions at Yale Law. School says this guy has been ruined suppose. It turns out some vagabond it, Jim can never get back. What he lost to get a search warrant or an arrest warrant on officer must present relevant facts under oath before a judge that has not been done says, David, Greg Burke to brand someone a suspect all you have to do is pick up the phone and call the local newspaper. There's something very wrong without when the potential consequence is the destruction of someone's life by graduation day may twenty fourth. The police posters of Jovan that had been tacked to the trees of old. Old campus had long since been torn by the wind or rip down. All the pride and pomp and glory of yells, two hundred ninety eight year. History was on display that day as the one thousand three hundred sixty one members of Joe wtn's class paraded in their Black Caps and gowns across the New Haven, green through Phelps gate and into old campus looking exhausted and somewhat hungover. They stopped imposed for their proud parents who are standing with cameras on the sidelines as degrees were conferred a loud. Roar filled the old campus, courtyard as Jovan classmates rose from their seats and cheered Suzanne Jovan was on many people's mind that day in the smaller ceremony at Devonport after the main commencement yell convert a degree on Jovan. She graduated cum laude with distinction and both her majors her classmates had placed a slab of. Blackstone, as a memorial to her in Davenport smaller courtyard nestled in a flower bed under Linden, and Dogwood. It reads Suzanne in Jovan in loving memory, January twenty six nineteen seventy seven to December fourth nineteen ninety eight the candle that students had placed on the stone had been extinguished by the rain that poured down on graduation day, a torrent that also drenched the bouquets of flowers and alone, rose still says a friend, it was as though Susan was there in the months since the murder says, one woman who graduated that day a lot of us would wake up in the morning saying today. Maybe we'll find out that so and so killed Suzanne. And then we realized that we might not know before we leave yell now, we might never know. All right. Well, that's all we've got for you. But as always we wanna talk about farside cares in like I said last week because of pride month. We want to talk about a foundation that I think does really great work. And we really think that you should look up and try to do something for him, whether that's volunteer or donate whatever you can do. I think it's a really great cause. So in honor of pride month as I said before we'd like to talk about Pride Foundation.

What are people going to see visit if they go to the pride festival until a little bit about, you know, where it's all we're all the participating is going to be here. Yeah. Of course it. We're, we're so excited. We've got a great weather forecast. So we're pumped for that. But, you know, all of us cities and stuff really kickoff tomorrow night. We're starting to show bar in the highlands. We have a great kickoff party to kind of get started the mayor and several dignitaries are gonna come out and join us to kind of get the festivities really in full gear. And of course, our signature event starts on Friday. We've got a parade the share seven o'clock PM and the new business districts will start their market. We'll travel down market down to Preston, and then down around to the big four lawn right down there by the pedestrian bridge. And that's where we'll have our festival. It'll conclude out Friday night. And then all day on Saturday from noon till eleven we've got a lot of exciting events and activities for folks to come out a lot of things for families just for people to just get connected to things and be there with the other folks that are like minded and accepting in our community. So it'd be great time. What about those people that aren't like mine? We were talking a little bit off the air. What do you want to say to them about why the festival because you've heard people say, I don't go out and you know, you have a a a straight festival, or although that was tried last week. I mean you've heard these things before them. We're dealt here. What do you want to tell you hear those things, and you what we need to do as a community in the tone that I've tried to set with focuses, you know, invite those folks in, because a lot of times, what people when you set back and you really talk about those things is people just really don't understand what it is. And they over sexualize the content of pride and what pride means. And really, it's about just a connection with someone a personal connection with someone in the love that they share with them. And, you know, over time things have evolved. I mean we've evolved are festival to kind of meet the needs of the community as well too. So that's why you see a lot more family activities, a lot more focused towards that. And we do other events throughout the year and stuff as well. Do we do a family day out series, and it's really kind of connect to families in that I'm one of the new things that we have a pride? The share is some educational classes that we're trying to do and it's geared more towards your folks that are typically in our community on a regular basis, but even within the commune. There's a chance for us to educate folks on other segments within that just so you understand. And I feel that understanding breeds, this cohesiveness and unity. Okay. Missing worked here. But when you say understand, what do you what do you mean? What do you want people to understand who are not gay for those folks? No. Lot of a lot of that is deeply rooted in their religious upbringing. And what they've learned throughout the years. So just the different interpretations of the bible for one just to kind of understand, you know, we may not agree on everything. But at least I can try to understand where you're coming from to be able to respect that, you know, at the end of the day, when you have an argument with a friend or someone and you say, hey, you know, we're just going to have to agree to disagree, but we do it in a courteous, manner, and polite, but at least you understand where it's coming from so that maybe one day, your heart and mind will change and just be accepting of the fact that they are, they are just love them for what for what their lifestyle that they choose to have.

As you know, I have TV's in my office. So I split screen them. And today you had. The federal the Federal Reserve champion Powell on one TV on the other TV guide. My the prices, right and all that stuff. And now, of course, my other TV we had this Michael Cohen thing. In case, you don't know with all that going on three billion dollars was added to our debt today in case, you don't know with all that going on one point five billion of our tax dollars went towards interest payments. Just today. So while the president speaking to this Kim what's his name jungle in Vietnam. And that's all going on right now. What does it four in the morning there? Powell do and his thing. Michael Cohen doing his thing. Three billion was added to the debt today at one point five billion of our tax dollars went toward sensors interest payments. You know, I bring this up because I just think it's all bunch of three card Monte, the people questioning Powell the people questioning Michael Cohen today on both sides of the aisle. Very much of them have created twenty two billion dollars of debt, and we're supposed to think of them as our leaders. And you know, I'm very careful with my words. So I'm not gonna use the actual words. I that. I think of when I think of these people. So let's just say they continue to absolutely positively mortgage our future, and let us down and do nothing about the most important thing. Going going forward. And it's the debt and the deficits that's covered by the easy money by the central banks around the globe, which eventually he's just gonna blow to hell up, and they all blame each other. And this is all going on wall. The economy's pretty decent here. So I'm just letting you know with all that crap going on that crap is going on my opinions on all this Powell's just another dummy. He was acting like Paul Volcker and turned into Ben Bernanke overnight. There is no doubt my mind. If the market drops ten percent he'll start lowering rates who was he trying to kid. Michael cohen. I believe a bunch of things he saying the truth. That's that's not hard to figure out. Donald Trump cheated on his wife with a porn star and paid off by the way. I don't say it flippantly, though, I'm saying it flippantly. I don't recommend any of you doing that. Thank you. Paid them off. All that this that and the other thing what I just I'm just illogical guy. Would you have a man? That's so Vokes sip precisely for years. Vociferiously? Back. The president defended the president said nothing, but great things about the president. Wait on TV with all the media was accused of every little thing, including the Chicago fire.

When they said, he's a con man who defended him Michael Cohen. You name it. He defended him. And under oath under the penalty of perjury. Where you go to jail with time and time again, we are all told it's not the crime. It's the lying about the crime. Michael Cohen defended the president. Under oath. Yet. Now. After he was caught for tax evasion. And all kinds of crap involved with the tax evasion where you're going to jail. Michael Cohen changes everything he said about the president and says the exact opposite of the president. Yet. We're supposed to believe that this is the truth. That the man is racist. He's a con, man. He's the anti Christ. He did. 'cause the Chicago fire. The San Francisco worth quake Luganda bubonic plague..
