"Ronn Owens. What the hell is going on in the United States of America? What the hell is wrong with us? Those were the questions Governor Gavin Newsom emotionally voice at a press conference yesterday afternoon following the mass shooting in the Valley Transportation Authority Building in San Jose. The suspected gunman was Sam Cassidy of E to employees who reportedly died of a self inflicted gunshot wound when we're going to come to grips with this 70 new Samantha's adding when we're going to put down our arms literally and figuratively, our politics, the stale rhetoric, finger pointing all the hand wringing consternation that produces nothing except more fury and frustration. More scenes like this repeated over and over and over again. President Biden ordered flags to be flown at half staff in memory of those who died in the mass shooting in San Jose. He expressed sympathy for the eight families who will never be whole again. That's horrible and even worse. Think about this. Biden took office on January 20th of this year and this is the fifth time he's ordered Flags flown at half sat following a math killing to me, that is mind boggling, Or is the president put it? Enough, Biden said. Once again, I urge Congress to take immediate action and heed the call of the American people, including the vast majority of gun owners to help end this epidemic of gun violence in America. Biden is called on Congress to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines and to close background check loopholes, He says that shouldn't be a red or blue issue, and he's right. Let's stop dancing around the issue. No other country in the world has more guns per capita than we have in the United States. We are number one in the top 10 list of countries with the most gun owning civilians. Americans owning 120 guns for every 100 people. Yemen rank second with about 53 guns for 100 people. Whether controlled by Democrats or Republicans. Politicians is so worried about alienating the National Rifle Association that even the most simple gun control laws become major topics of debate theory campaigns against all forms of gun control in the U. S, and argues that more guns make the country safer. It's among the most powerful special interests lobby groups in the country with a substantial budget of millions of dollars annually to influence members of Congress on gun policy. Listen, I do support the Second Amendment giving us the right Keeping bear arms. If you feel a gun will make you feel safer at home, yet one just register it and pass a background check. But not everyone is clear and legal reasons to acquire a gun. Yesterday's mass shooting is the 232nd incident. Right least four people were shot in the U. S so far this year. If you really want a gun, you'll get it legally or illegally. On my Facebook page. I heard from a lot of people who want to see something done about the epidemic of gun violence in America, James says. It's so very sad. Here we go again. When are we going to put human lives over the Second Amendment? We must get the House and Senate Toe Act to improve background checks and get rid of ghost guns. Karen D says, and nothing will be done because people value their guns over the lives of others. Karen be says, Leave the flags down for all the gun deaths daily. It's so sad and tragically unnecessary. Ramsey says another shooting in the USA condolences to the families. When will this ever stop? Ramsey? I think we're all asking that question. Every time we hear about a mass shooting, like the one yesterday in San Jose, I wind up coming to the same conclusion. Fewer.
President Biden calls for unity in Inauguration Day message
"Ronn Owens simply put. I feel so much better about this country today better than I felt in the last four years. It's not the president Biden is on evident by any means. But he is genuine. His calls for unity and respect our sincere and much needed. I think you made an excellent gesture yesterday when he promised he would be president for all Americans, saying, I will fight his hard for those who didn't support me as those who did. What a breath of fresh air Unlike Trump, Biden doesn't approach politics is a blood sport. As he said in his inaugural address. Politics doesn't have to be a raging fire, destroying everything in its path. Every disagreement doesn't have to be cause for total war. Watching the laying of the wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Yesterday, I was struck by the unity exemplified by the presence of three of the living. Former presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton joined Biden and Vice President Harris for the traditional Inauguration day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, of course, have been political disagreements between them over the years, but it's important to note how they've risen above them and shown the United for the country. Last night, I interviewed Kate Anderson Brower, author of Team of five, the President's Club in the age of Trump. She did in depth research and the most exclusive club in the world. Exploring how former presidents stay in touch with one another, and at times offer their advice to their successors. She made it clear that no matter what Trump wouldn't be a member after leaving office And it wouldn't be because of his political beliefs, but his lack of character it somehow, you know that when he finishes his term or terms, Joe Biden will be

"Radio Hall of Fame. Here's Ronn Owens. Wow, a real debate. The first question. People ask in major debates like this is who won. I say no 11 and no one lost. The candidates both scored points and instead of getting the dogfights both essentially argue their case and allowed some charges to just lay there, letting the voters decide what they believe on their own. It may sound is a fiery and orderly are conflicting words, but they both actually fit in reacting to what we heard. I spent much of the day watching pre debate panels, and there were certain keys most pundits laid down to look for first the behavior of the President. Trump's supporters seemed united in hoping that he could control himself an Activia repeating his first performance. I wasn't alone in thinking that he couldn't do it, and I was wrong. Yeah, he stole a few minutes sure to extend an answer or charge. But after all, he was restrained, seem to be listening and allowed the format to play itself out. A big concern from the Biden supporters was the hope that he'd come off solid, not seemingly forgetting something or looking for the right words to say. And overall, he did fine. Well, I could have done without all these smiling and shaking of the head. People also wondered if the moderator Kristen Welker, would be able, along with the two minutes uninterrupted sections to make the Beta Rhea one, not a circus. She did, and was definitely prepared, asking good questions and as much as possible, forcing by Trump to have their answers match what they were asked. Throughout the day there was a huge buildup of a press conference by a guy who worked with the Biden family in Ukraine. Republicans seemed ready to get some raw meat, but it fizzled. Sure, Donald took some shots of joke, but nothing exploded. I'd say the reason for this is that with covert 19 and the many unemployed, most listeners either didn't understand nor care for the subject. The whole idea of a press conference an hour before the debate starts to quote Joe Biden come on find it seemed to agree that most people have their minds made up anyway that few people would use that the base is the main reason for their vote. In this one. They were right. Most of the questions and answers have been used before by the candidates. There were no breakout moments as an example the first the most important topic Lee Corona virus elicit the same charges and responses in other words, and he believed Trump handle it. Well by stopping entry in the U. S by anyone from China. You were pleased by his usual points. You feel the president took too much time and let the pandemic explode. Biden reinforced your view. I'm a personal perspective. Joe Biden said it very well when he said this is an election about character, pointing to trump by nest, whom he respected more with that word. I think you know my answer..

"Of Fame. Here's Ronn Owens. When President Trump talks about the news media being fake, Invariably I grown, there's no freer country than the United States when it comes to disseminating information. First off if newspapers, TV networks, magazines, radio stations and like they make stuff up that can cause you harm could be physical, monetary or even destroy your reputation permanently. They're legal remedies, which can and often are punitive enough to not only blame the offender but also can force other outlets to be as accurate as possible unless they become responsible for libel. If it's breaded or scandal, if it's broadcast to realise that in the types of cases I'm talking about today, mainstream media there enough disincentives to challenge and prevent their dissemination. We also, of course, need to talk about the Internets role in all of this. Unlike mainstream media There's no policing on the Web. It all he could essentially make any charge you want and move on and let it go at that. The only way you can fight is to ignore that's it. Most sites aside from those that would be considered branches of mainstream media simply don't have the resource is to fight, let alone to prevail in court. Bottom line. When it comes to the Internet is it's up to you to determine what's real or not? No one without an agenda will do that for you. Speaking of the mainstream media, it is interesting to note the importance of headlines and don't overlook it because as an example even the quality New York Times had a front page story dealing with a very important issue who may enter the country legally. And I got to tell you, I thought Boy Trump is doing this again. Because the headline was Trump considers banning reentry by citizens who may have Corona virus. My immediate reaction was what the hell he can't do that. But then, as I read the complete peace, I need to stop himself in my feelings. Even the most respected members of the Mainstream media like in this case, The New York Times can make mistakes. First of all this income for President Trump. Instead, the proposal relied on existing legal authorities from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to protect the country. Secondly, the draft of the legislation explicitly says any order barring citizens and legal permanent records must include appropriate protections to ensure No one's constitutional rights are infringed. And although the document appears not to detail how long a citizen or a legal resident would be required to remain outside the U. S. It specifically says CDC expects that any prohibition of the introduction of a U. S citizen, a legal permanent resident from abroad would apply only in the rarest of circumstances when required in the interest of public health and has to be limited in duration. It's also interesting is the government already has the authority to do this. They can conduct extra health screenings of American citizens and potentially imposed Florentines if an American citizen returns about so So in many ways, not only it's not a front page crisis. It's basically no big deal. Granted, the EU will turn around and say barring American citizens from the U. S is unconstitutional, and the administration is only using covert 19 as an excuse to demonize foreigners. I'm trying to get into the country, but they're not going to prevail on this one The courts have upheld with the CDC has said many times Tomorrow of today's report go beyond headlines understand what's important to you Use your own guidelines as to what to believe that most remember you can always Google Ron Owens podcast to see who or what we're talking about being right now or from the beginning of the year again, you just need to go Ron Owens podcasts and put.

"Here's Ronn Owens. I grew up in New York and it's six I went to my first baseball game Yankees playing the Chicago White Sox, and that was in the old Yankee Stadium. First football game I went to is when it was eight Columbia versus some other Ivy League school. But by the age of nine I got on the circuit. I went to the old Madison Square Garden and The Rangers and the Knicks. Parenthetically, by the way, it's fascinating to know how New York of the largest population in the country and with the obvious exception of the Yankees consistently had teams that sucked anyway. I went to track me to the old Garden. I watched the best in tennis at the Westside Tennis Club, in my own hometown far cells that was with the national championships were played every year, at least at that time. More than 44 years ago, I wind up moving to San Francisco. Now it's Chris Berman once said. It is classless. Change your affiliation and loyalty to a team. But I did the Giants. The Niners got into my blood and boy from that fateful day of October 27th 1975. I've never rooted for anyone else. I went to a lot of baseball games, even scoring aquatic candlestick on one freezing night football that I went to more sporadically. I always thought this far more fascinating on TV with every place super analyzed, especially on weekends. Sports was my one area that I concentrated on just for fun. I couldn't imagine a day without sports. Which brings us to today. And the pandemic. Now, until last week, there were none. Nada. No sports whatsoever when the Corona virus became the unloved part of our lives. Sports is one of the first to adjust not because they wanted to, but because they had Teo So suddenly, the N B a in the NHL disappeared, grabbing the sporting green from the Chronicle and carefully reading It was useless. Next up spring training. Who cared just didn't feel right personally with my total love of sports. I hung on for a while, but then, as we all had to do I just accepted this A cz. Well, the temporary new normal, But wait When I was growing up, sports is entertainment. Now it's all about money, and the owners suddenly found themselves locked out from their humongous profits that they had to do something to keep it going well, took him a while, but you know, if there was any way to do it, they go back to playing baseball. And sure enough, they did rules changes that seemed purely cosmetic. Like players. We're no longer allowed to soak in. Congratulations from Homer's as if that's gonna work, which, for all intents and purposes has been ignored and significant changes in the game like A horrible designated hitter virus, which snuck its way into the National League. But they were playing sort of the fillies at a bunch of players whose covert 19 tests came back positive. And that's of course, they couldn't play. Then against the Marlins. Well, Florida had to postpone their first game against the Orioles. Same kind of a reason. Yep, and there'll be more dominos that fall, and yet you're still hearing rumors like well, we'll go from a 60 game season, normally 1 62 to 45. That'll solve the whole problem. Well, if I were writing this report, I would use sarcastic of fund because let's make this easy. This baseball season like everything else in 2020 is simply not meant to be. Among other things, Baseball is a game of stats. And unless it's a full season, you're inviting statistical chaos. And now you get the NFL coming out with its idea on salvaging their season, and I'm sure that's gonna go real smoothly. I mean, 11 guys sweating in a tight huddle. The contact with the Poland says closest, impossibly be what could go wrong. Look, I sure miss sports and to be honest. Not quite as much as I thought I would. But I do miss it a lot and for what it's worth, the Giants telecast of the radio broadcast really good given what they got to work with, But let's grow up. Sometimes there are things not meant to be forget this season. Let's defeat covert 19 and then worry about beating the Dodgers. That's the Rana one's report every.

"Fame. Here's Ronn Owens. Rarely do I read a column on the air, but this is different, and I'm not reading the whole thing. Just the essence of it, which explains the way I feel better than I could have said it myself. Maureen Dowd. New York Times Last Sunday quote. Never mind Johnny Depp and Amber Heard you want to see a real can't look away from a train wreck of a relationship look to the nation's capital, where a messy falling out its chronicled everywhere for the tabloids to a glossy fashion magazine. The press breathlessly covering how much time has passed since the pair last spoke. Whether they're headed for splitsville. And will they ever agree on what's best for the Children? It was bound to be tempestuous because they are the ultimate odd couple. The doctor and the president won, is a champion of truth and fax. The other is a master of deceit and denial. One is highly disciplined, working 18 hour days. The other can't be bothered to do his homework and golfs. Instead, one is driven by science and the public. Good. Thea other is a public menace, driven by greed and ego. One is a Washington institution. The other was sent here to destroy Washington institutions. One is incorruptible. The other corrupts. One is a political thea, other politicizes everything he touches, toilets, windows, beans and most fatally masks. After a fractious week when the former reality show star in the White House Retweeted a former game shows, saying that we shouldn't trust doctors about covert 19 Donald Trump and Anthony Fauci, a gritting their teeth. What's so scary is that bumpy course of their relationship has life or death consequences for Americans. Republicans on Capitol Hill privately confessed they were baffled by the whole thing, saying they couldn't understand why Trump would undermine Fauci. Especially now, with the virus resurgent I think it's not like hurting trumps reelection chances. But there's soup worryingly new polls now show the smear from Trump world may be starting to stick fewer Republicans trust the doctor now that in the spring Forget Mueller Sessions. Comey, Canada, His niece make emergency of many quarrel, scrapes and scraps that Trump is an instigated in its time in office. Surely this will be remembered. Not only is the most needless and perverse but as the most dangerous as doctor found, she said. To the Atlantic, it's a bit bizarre. More than a bit.

"Here's Ronn Owens. This is part two of the interview We did with Dan McAdams, author of The Strange Case of Donald J. Trump, a psychological reckoning. This is somebody who can somehow survive well survived the Corona virus. I mean, It. It just really went past him is out of control. And yet he maintains he's still right. Does he know deep down that he's not? It's interesting with respect to the virus, and I met his match with the virus. The virus doesn't respect time. The viruses is its own story, and Trump is living in the moment. Trump is good at fighting human opponents in the moment and beating them to death. You can't do that to the virus. You wake up the next day and still there. He still thinks it's going to go away tomorrow. Trumps already said the virus. Just a moment in time. It's just gonna pass. It's not something that he is psychologically prepared to handle. This would be a challenge for any president for sure, but he is singularly ill equipped to deal with an opponent like this. Well, that's what he said. What does he mean? It? Does it deep down really mean it. Or does he know? Hey, I'm backed into a corner. This is the way I'm going to fight my way out. No deep down with Donald Trump. I mean, he says pretty much. What he means is the exception to bad is when he's reading a teleprompter, and he kind of has to go through the motions. But The most part. What you see is what you get with Donald Trump. You know, look, you'll say, Well, he's just an actor. He's faking all the time. And I go. Yeah, you're right. He's an actor, but he has one roll and that's who he really is. He's a perfectly authentic think it's Donald Trump playing Donald Trump. Everyday people thought When he got into the presidency in the office, he will change his two. He'll play a different role the way Ronald Reagan did. He's an actor Hebrew he played President Donald Trump has never played president for one moment, he has One roll, and it's Donald Trump. There is no deep now. It's always Donald Trump playing. What about the narcissism, though I mean it's extreme, Is it not? Yes, off the map. It's off the map. But most narcissists have a story. Most Narcisse love to tell you how great their life has been In first I started this way and then Oh, my God, I had this terrible defeat back in 1997 and then I ran into this horrible thing. And then I survive this and then I came out Trump. You can't do that because he can never know. Even for a moment, even like for one day in 1997 that he ever lost a bell. It's always win win win. So if you've got a life like that, you can't really create a story out of that kind of thing. So most narcissus I mean, he's very narcissistic. We'll give the watch. But that's not the weirdest thing about it. Most Narcissus would be able to deal with the covert crisis of one way or another. We've had Narcissus in the office. Lim Baines Johnson was an inveterate narcissist, no doubt about it, but Johnson had a sense of history. The narrative. He understood how to take on things for the long term. Donald Trump is a fighter. He's a battler. He's a boxer in the ring. He's there for three minutes. He's going to give you all he has. He's going to rest for a minute. He's going to get up and start over and he's done it this way. His entire life. All right, quick. Last question if I can Washing post has him. I believe now at 14,000 lies that he's made since the day that he took over the office. Does he know he's lying? Does he care if he's lying? He certainly doesn't care. And I'm not sure he knows all that much again for Mr Trump. He he doesn't have a moral foundation. So what counts as a lie or truth depends on what he needs in the moment to win the moment. And so he'll say Whatever it takes to win the moment and bed for Mr Trump is truth. There is no objective truth. Beyond that. The book is the strange Case of Donald J. Trump a psychological reckoning. We didn't touch on one last thing and give me 30 seconds. If you can. The man's thoroughly lack of any empathy. At least that's the way it appears. Oh, complete and its startling right. I mean, he just can't get out of his own self absorption can't feel anybody else's pain. They try to teach him how to do it. They write it on no cards. Do this, Mr President Ju there. He just can't do it. It's like me trying to dunk a basketball and I could try for the rest of my life. I'm never gonna be able to do it trumps never gonna be able to express them. He just He just doesn't act in that register. That's Dr Dan P. McAdams. The book The strange case of Donald J.

"Of Fame. Here's Ronn Owens, I guess washing post reporter who has won the Pulitzer Prize. Yeah, Mary Jordan. She's written a book called The Art of Her Deal, which is the untold story of Melania Trump. And Mary. I've got to say I can understand that when I first read Well, you there hundreds of interviews and all that, But you had one conversation with. I said, You can write a book on that. Apparently, you can. I don't think she's ever spoken anywhere before that way as she That's her whole thing is that she Is purposely mysterious and doesn't give very many interviews. But so what I did was I just thought that there was an unusual vacuum of information about this woman. You know, everyone in the world know what you look like. But you would ask. I asked during the campaign basic things, and there was no response. So I basically went around the world starting in Slovenia, where she was born, and then where she worked in France and Germany and Italy and New York. It took several years. But I just wanted to talk to people find records, get interviews, get tapes and get a fuller biography about who Melanie is. Well, let's talk about who she is. Let's talk about the average person who thinks about her. What's the biggest misconception that she's trapped and that she's just arm candy? No. She likes living in the White House. She laughs about the whole hashtag free Melania. She is very savvy. She grew up in a socialist country. She's extremely disciplined. She is introverted. She doesn't like to talk publicly. I I, but she is and she is a player. You know, she does have influence and they say hit the White House. I talked to a lot of people there that the most dangerous place to be in the White House is in the crosshairs of Melania, because if she doesn't like you, you could get fired, though it's interesting, too, because we had John Bolton on last week, and John was saying again, the family that's the president leans on more than anyone course. Yesterday we had the revelation that entirely Jared is no longer listen to but still This is going along with it. You just don't think you're thinking. For example, the public takes Ivanka and says, Yeah, we get it now She's really into policy because we don't really know about Melania as an individual. We kind of say, Well, she's probably a political or whatever. And she is kind of a pill it you couldn't make her come off kind of a political but very bright. You know, it was just consider them an ideology. She knows what she thinks. And she knows what she recommends. What she does is, she figures out what is good for her and for her son and Trump trusts her and increasingly and especially after bolted, But so many people, I mean, look at all the people that he's hired. They worked with him, and then they left and they criticized him and increasingly mean to begin with. He trusted few people. But now Melodia stock has gone up as his distrust for virtually everyone else. Around him has gone down. He thinks that she's one of the very few people that's loyal, so he pulls her in on key meetings. Well, one of the things you have written is that everybody who gets fired go through Melania first, he's got to give her approval. I'm thinking that's a full time job. While all the big hires right I mean it was critical in hiring Mike Penson. It was very interesting when I was talking to several people who had direct knowledge of the search for the vice president. It was Melania who told Trump You know Chris Christie Newt Gingrich. The other contenders. Those two, they're Alfa. They're gonna want your job there too ambitious, You know, pick pence because he'll be content at number two. You know, she's very aware that Trump doesn't do coasters, and indeed he picked my pence. Interesting. And did she know Mike Pence it all. She spent two days with him in July of 2016. Trump summoned Mike Pence, and his wife, Karen, to Bedminster is 500 acre compound outside New York City. He s Melania to spend breakfast, lunch and dinner over two days, and he wanted her opinion and heard that for many people in great detail. Well, the name of the book is the art of her deal. But as far as Melanie is concerned, we learned much about her again. Mary Jordan. Thank you so much for joining us. Appreciate.

"Here's Ronn Owens. Here is a portion of the interview we did last week with John Bolton, former national security adviser, author of the Room where it happened. He never admits that he's wrong about anything that's a given. He's never said Yes. That was a mistake, And in fact, do you admit it if I recall it, But one article you were talking about whether or not you should have, in fact, informed the president that this is what you were doing. There's a distinction in the sense that he's the only person I've ever met who cannot ever say that they made a mistake well, and I don't think it's it serves his own interest. That's that's what I don't understand about it. If you can't make course corrections, you ultimately are going to cut to cause yourself more trouble than it's worse. I mean, if you if you look at the Russian interference in the 2016 election for exam Apple, and let's be clear there was Russian interference. He has been afraid to admit that for a long time because he's worried it would undercut the legitimacy of his victory over Hillary Clinton. I don't see it that way at all. I think it would strengthen his hand in a whole range of of areas, but it's it's always something that he gags it saying, But why is he subservient to Putin? I mean, Putin certainly is smarter than him in terms of politics in terms of world affairs, in terms of just how to conduct yourself here. Did. Why's he so subservient? Well, he Hey, enjoy getting along with. You know the other big guys. Big guys get together. They don't need aid. They don't need information. They're just going to solve things between themselves. I think the leaders especially of our authoritarian adversaries, just see through him like through a pane of glass. And you know the the You can see it when he sits on the absolute side of the table from Putin, Energy Jinping or whomever and they can play him well, and I Think they're successful at it are our friends and allies have more difficulty dealing with him, But I think those who understand what they're dealing with on the other side. This is not a normal presidency. John as the national Security advisor, how you spend your day And I say that because in the end, no matter what advice you give me is going to do what he wants to do anyway. Right. And look, I fully understand that I used to say I'm the national security advisor, not the national security decision maker, and you could spend really hours with him. He he loved Talk on almost any subject, but we tried to do was make sure that we got through briefings. He needed tohave and get decisions made. But it was an unstructured day to say the least. But different days. I could spend hours and hours with going back to Kim Jong un because now they're talking about Kim Young joon. This is his sister getting power, and I'm wondering reading about that in that part of the world. You think intensely, like North Korea would accept a female president. You know, it's a very good question. I don't know the answer What we do know about North Korea. Just to show what a strange place it is, is that it's the world's on ly hereditary Communist dictatorship, and it could well be that the sister is being groaned as the successor. Certainly she is with Kim Jong un all the time. When we met in Singapore in Hanoi, she was a constant presence. So in a country that's that authoritarians, Obviously, the head guy has to worry constantly about threats to his power, so looking to family members. Is isn't isn't something that's unusual. What whether it's serious that she's being groomed is the successor hard to tell, But in a dangerous place like that, that that may be what's going on here? But could you keep the power? Remember when Kim Jong Eun came in? And they thought, Yeah, but he's just a puppet, and he will be destroyed. And but he destroyed his enemy. Yeah, Look, you're exactly right. There was a lot of speculation that he wouldn't last that he didn't have what it took. And you know if you can kill enough of your competitors for power you can hold on. Uh, I don't think we know enough about really what the state of the leadership inside North Korea is. I think when you're running a 25 million person prison camp, though, you're you're always in jeopardy way Don't know right now. For example, neither did the South Koreans really just how devastating the effect of the Corona virus in North Korea has been. But it's possible that things are even more turbulent. The regime is even weaker than we'd thought before even listening to John Bolton. Former national security adviser, author of the Room where it happened..
20 Minutes With Brian Keane
"So high Brian. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much for taking the time to speak to me today. How you doing? I'm doing amazing. Thank you so much for having. I'm really looking forward to this conversation. No aures thank you again brought. If you could start off just giving us an introduction to yourself yeah so my name is Brian ranking ranking fitness online. And I'm a former primary. School teacher turned fitness entrepreneur effectively. So to cut a long story short. I was a primary school teacher in London for four years and for two of those years I worked as a personal trainer nighttime walking in a gym with people looking to lose weight get fit or get stronger etc and then it's thousand fourteen. I moved back home him to the west of Ireland where I currently live and set up a one to one personal training business and then over the space of eighteen months two years of living full time at home in order to kind of match the supply and demand because of the amount of people that were coming to me for personal training. I moved my business online and over the last name. Since two thousand fifteen I've been primarily online with the exception of a couple of books books that I rise in the appearances that ideal person in terms of speaking everything else in the fitness ramble. My business is on line. Two programs one a sport specific the other is pure fitness Pacific. Civic and now I just spend my days talking to people like you and working with my online client doing some talks around the world that to kind of communicate with some awesome people. Yeah I've got a pretty awesome lifestyle per minute so long. No definitely greats ahead obviously as well with your podcast. That's another great resource for anyone that wants to find out more about what Bryant Definitely Chatham. We'll talk more about that throughout the podcast. First thing on the touchdown Brian McKnight's obviously you saw your other fitness industry as you said is a PT and did some fitness modeling now use of transitions since doing ultra endurance events. As well what's changed in your own way. You approach your fitness to not to want to make a massive lead so one of the things that I generally always advise people with fitness whether your couch to five K.. An absolute beginner. You've never step foot in the gym or ever done a workout or somebody. That's a near professional athlete or professional professional athletes and their life. If is training you always need to have a goal that you're setting in working towards and I'm the exact same with fitness and in two thousand and end fourteen. I started competing in fitness modeling. Embody I believe so stepping onstage and the end of two thousand fourteen I won a pro card fitness. Molly was basically just means that you can compete for more money and in two thousand and fifteen. I was preparing for the World Championships in Las Vegas and a few months prior to that my daughter was born and I remember having this moment where I was getting ready for a show. I couldn't form sentences in my head. Hey I'm so pleased and just hired all the time I remember thinking I'm going to be terrible dad if I keep doing this man. I made that decision there and then that I would do that show in Las Vegas and I did quite well that I came to the world's in Las Vegas and I decided I was stepping away. I needed to set a new fitness goal. This wasn't going to be my life anymore. It was too all consuming for me and and to be honest Charlie for the next eighteen months. I didn't really do anything in the fitness realm. I kind of trained a few days on and off. I always did something in the gym. High intensity interval training bodyweight workout aesthetics. You don't just Kinda messing around with it. But I didn't really have any serious fitness goals. Now I wrote my first book my first book. The fitness mindset which did really well that was sixteen weeks of the bestseller list on Amazon is an eighth consecutive weeks and wrote that in released in two thousand seventeen and after that point when I came off the back of the success of that book I was starting to get that little bit of a hollow auto feeling again Ronn like mine. I haven't set a goal for myself in ages. I haven't had any fitness school. Because I've been so focused on my business so focused on my family so focused on the book at the time and then I was at this event in Tony Robbins business mastery in Amsterdam and I met a friend who I've met a guy who sits become a close and personal friend totten's name and he ran what he told me about was ultra marathons and I had been from a world of played sports all my life football rugby soccer and I'd never heard of an ultra marathon marathons I like really ignorant the ass of the what an ultra marathon committee and he was like an over her marathon distance and he told me about this race in the Sahara called Maratha Saab which is marathon in the sand. It's six back to back marathons self sufficient through the Sahara desert in the north of Morocco and itself supported to carry all your food on your back to give you water checkpoints but evidence self sufficient. We need to have a venom pump within arms reach at all times so that your in case you get bitten by a snake armor. I'm telling you about this event. He did and I was like that sounds insane and planted the seat and I was like a couple of months later signed up for his having never random marathon having never ran and running when it's unfamiliar with the way I look. I'm fair from built like an marathon runner like I'm short and stock Yemeni harsh really built for Durance and I signed up in August two thousand seventeen and then decided that look. I need to start training for the marathon to solve in April of Twenty eight eighteen so I signed up to my first ever marathon there Dubai marathon in January two thousand eighteen Iran with a backpack in thirty five degrees and Dubai. By and from there on I just kept training in April around those six back to back marathons through the Sahara Avenue kind of got hooked and ultra endurance in February of this year around June thirty kilometers through the Arctic circle which was gold old. And now a minute. I'm currently trading for one hundred mile to marathon in Nevada in February. And so that's kind of a long story you've got a medium not long story. Short story brought to a kind of a medium to where I am. Now in the transition from bodybuilding fitness model into running ultra endurance events. Going to challenge my body in a different way then to be honest charity it. It all comes down just needed a goal to work towards because I train hired otherwise 'em and I recommend that to everybody. Listen it's relative like you don't have to run to the The Arctic for some people. It's just going to the gym twice going for a walk around the block after work. When you know you'll be tired or decided body weight program Monday Wednesday and Friday for the next three months? You know it's completely relative. What for me working towards a goal and not wanting Halloween into combat because? I'm not working any specific fitness goal. modest the distance is your Rhode Island oversee pre yourself in his positions blanket. Imagine it was just incredible when you actually accomplish them. Oh it's different. Especially to be honest. There was a huge difference between the first two between Maryland Assab because when Iran six back to back marathons in the Sahara. I'd never done anything like that before I ever marathon which was on the road in a few months earlier and I wasn't sure sure Charlie until I got to the finish line of the six back to back marathons if I was going to be able to finish like there's so many things that could have gone wrong. I was like I just didn't know the article slightly different. I knew I was going to finish that race. And it's probably a different story for different day but I tore my kidneys. Eighty six kilometers from the end of that race and the High A.. Different completely different relationship with pain. In 'cause I powered through for the eighty kilometers off three months after put I powered through honors. And what you get out of these events for me anyway like you just get this massive of net benefit your confidence grows. You feel like you can attack any obstacle comes your way you get really good at separating like real problems from perceived problems so like even in my everyday life in my business with my daughter with my family like I get very good between separating right. This isn't a rea- problem. This is an inconvenience. This can be fixed verses this is this is a real problem I e. There's something wrong with my daughter. There's something wrong with my mom. There's something wrong with the family. Member and ultra endurance gives me that. Because you're just doing that. On a micro basis. Yeah as I said you don't have to to do ultramarathons crazy events to get that people get it from different areas. But it's definitely something I've got. I've got a massive net benefit as a result of
"ronn" Discussed on Drum History
"Zee and today i'm talking with mr rhonda net about george way drums ron how are you i'm great how you doing good good i'm glad you're here man you're a a legend in the industry both with being the owner of george way drums but just your dinette classic drums as a brand is just innovative and and i think everyone just loves and respects it well i never know how to respond when someone says a legend or anything like that it always makes me feel a a little slightly uncomfortable because i i'm i you know i celebrate celebrate that when i'm gone yeah the still still a long way to go but i do appreciate it i really do absolutely so we're talking today about george way and i get messages from people fairly often stain like hey i keep hearing you talk about george way and they'll say who is he and he's come up episodes that people can check out like such as an episode about lead early on with rob cook he was involved in the camco episode which obviously we'll talk about i know you mentioned that maybe you're not the guy who to go with specific on you know where he was born and where he went to kindergarten and we kind of baby foodie eight and stuff uh-huh but like but just broad strokes why don't you tell us who is george way why should we care about them and what what is his involvement in the dreamworld wow that's a huge question and i really don't know where to start but george is he is in a in a in a nutshell he is the i've i've got a number of names that i call him by he's he's the the godfather of the modern drum set is the leonardo da vinci of of of the mechanics axon designed of of the modern drum set and he he's important on on so many levels and what i i'm just back from new orleans where i was at stanton moore's drum camp pinned someone asked about him and i and i said there's not a person in this room there's not a drummer alive today but doesn't oh oh georgia a debt of gratitude because whatever brand of drum you're playing today i don't care what it is using one of his ideas yeah somewhere somehow along the way and never just so many many of them on the the the one that comes to mind off the top of my head the one that really stands out is is the swivel nut and if i can explain that it's the threaded insert that goes into a lug that sort of self aligns and and when i inherited or when rob cook passed along all of georgia's his estate included in there were just really important historical drawings of some of the stuff he did and there's a pencil on paper drawing their dated nineteen seventeen which he was drawing out versions of that particular idea to the point where i looked at it and i went the version that he drew is actually the one that we use now he he actually we skipped through all of the lug styles where where we're manufacturers used to springs on the inside fell generally speaking now that swivel well not held in place by a little rubber insert that sort of fits in and holds it in place he he drew that in one thousand nine hundred seventeen he so he's an unbelievably really innovative and way ahead of its time on a lot of this stuff way ahead of his time and and no pun intended there w- with his name but he was there are a bunch of things that that are are credited him he was really the first i am a drum manufacturer to use i i believe what was then called pirating but we know what better is as a as a marine pearl rap he it was the first one to do it he was the one that popularized it and we still have going today all of those wrap finishes late marine in pearl that was that was george and some some of that information on that particular company that was making that pirating it was also included in those archives that i received well now let me ask you this so he famously has worked with multiple different drum companies so he was basically weekly a an employee of i know companies such as leafy slinger land leading and ludwig and then he started his own company which kind of became camco but was liike do you know is leading the first company actually was employed by to be you know a drum worker actually and i'm i'm gonna rely on the history here he actually started with george stone of of and he of course has his own a legacy that's boston right yeah yeah and they started working together together making you know sound effects of the time and there's a famous picture of them with these little things that made sounds you know pig squeals and you know those those vaudevillian sound effects again in broad big chunks he eventually ended up in edmonton canada working at the pantages theatre there and and that's where things really started happening thanks for him he you know in addition to being a the drummer for that particular you know entertainment scene he worked with one of the i believe he was a boilerman there who who worked at the theater and and he started making snare drums and it was ashley in edmonton canada where he really started with what was known as the advanced dance trump company and over the last few years i've been i've i've discovered fueled these advanced snare drums even wouldn't wouldn't one and there are few archival pictures of him you know working at this advanced trump company but i have a couple of those snare drums and even then george was so far ahead of his time when everyone was using to blogs he used one of his early wranglings versions of swivel lug now at all it it didn't swivel three hundred sixty degrees but it was definitely self aligning get sort of moved at a ninety degree angle to the shell and it was this amazingly simple lug design on a metal drum show and you know to the advanced from company edmonton alberta it was there that he started attracting the attention of ulysses leading and lee made him an offer he couldn't refuse and so george and elsie his his wife whom he met while working in edmonton went to work for leading and that's where it all began i don't know if if any of your listeners know this and they they probably won't but they may have seen at some point in time there is a a collection of uh advertising materials that was called lady drum topics yeah no no no that's i've i've posted some pictures of it that's very popular healer amongst the yes the drum folks amazing stuff some of the it was it was basically a magazine the lady had put out now now here's where it gets really interesting at least from my perspective because with my companies not one of the things that's been a piece of the success of dinette classic and and and george way is that all of the graphic design stuff off all of the advertising photography all of those catchy silly little add some tongue in cheek things that i do time-to-time everything that's all done in house else and george was actually a magnificent graphic designer and again in with with his archives or all of the tools that a graphic designer would have used back in the day and he applied he he was an artist to his skills were you know just from my perspective you know with working with computers cameras looking back and what he was doing i'm going oh my god like i got a lot of parallels with this guy misses a big one yeah there were there were jars of paint lettering books on calligraphy and there were some beautiful original examples of his work you that genius went as far as all of his handwritten notes everything was i it wasn't done in cursive it was all printed that's wild what a renaissance man you know like just tell you everything you said it right there that that's probably the best single word word to describe him he was a renaissance man and and he covered just every base you know like yeah he it was a a a drum designer the deal was forward thinking and just had so many ideas but the marketing concepts the graphic design and and then you read those lady topics and what they were saying and actually even some of the letters and again keep referring into the archives that i got from rob cook but there were letters in there and exchanges between him and lady and him in many of the other people that had had worked with throughout his career and he he had a an understanding of i guess you would call it customer service that just tied everything in he was all about quality the quality the drum end and customer service so again that's the word renaissance man he is genius wasn't it's just limited to hey i can i can rapid drum in marine pearl or i a i think it's rough needs a a parallel release instead of just unhinging it one side kind of thinks well and it seems to me he's he's actually not to oversimplify but he's seen drummers as people people who are very passionate about their instrument because we're we're very early on in the drum set in this point in time if not in the advent of being created so he's like like we're we're doing right now we're talking to people people listening to this to this are obsessed with the drums like us and they love it and like the leading topics like his publications they're just to promote drums i mean it just gets people more jazzed up about drums and and and i think we have him to thank for a lot of that kind of you know really instilling instilling this love of drums with with people yeah i you know and i'll tell you the same with your listeners a little bit especially the the younger ones but from the beginning why is he important and what occurred to me was that and again something that it's it's common knowledge out there but george came from a very wealthy family and he made a decision very early in life that what he wanted to do was be drummer.
US, Iran conflict hardening over attacks on 2 tanker ships
"Tensions between the US and Iran are again, ratcheting up as the US accused Iran of orchestrating an attack Thursday on Japanese and Norwegian oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, Iran, denied any involvement, and accused the Trump administration of trying to sabotage diplomacy secretary of state. Mike Pompeo directly accused Iran attacking the oil, tankers just hours after the incident. It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran, responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Amman today, this assessment is based on intelligence. The weapons used the level of expertise needed to execute the operation recent similar rating attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency jacked with a high degree of sophistication. On Thursday night. The United States also released video of which acclaimed was runs revolutionary guard removing an unexploded mind from the side of the Japanese oil, tanker attacked, however, the president of the Japanese company that owns the ships that it was not attacked by mines, but to flying objects, he also said he does not believe any objects where tach to the side of the ship Iranian ships did approach the oil tankers after the attack. But according to multiple news accounts. The Iranians helped rescue dozens of crew members from the tankers the timing of the incident, also raise many questions as it came as Japanese Prime minister was visiting Iran and an attempt to bring Ron in the United States. The negotiating table. Iranian-american treat a party said, quote sounds like some are afraid Japan may succeed in starting diplomacy. The message of peers to be, don't you dare stand in the way of my war plans? Treat a party said last month, the US blamed, Iran for attacking four other oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, but offered no evidence will. For more, we're joined now by VJ per Shah, director of tri-continental institute for social research, chief editor of leftward books. He's also the chief correspondent of globetrotter he's the author of several books, including the poorer nations possible. History of the global south. Welcome to mockery now VJ per shod respond to it's happening right now in the Gulf of phone line. Hello, amy. It's I think important to bench into the woods you just used. You said that only hours after the attack, or the bombings in the Norwegian and Japanese thank the US secretary of state went out there and blamed, Iran hours of to, you know, it's very interesting. There's a kind of rush to blame Iran for anything that's been happening around the go. Full moves people who look closely at the oil business understand that fifty percent of the world's oil goes through the Gulf of law, Moos, the understand that, you know, getting oil is a dangerous activity, all kinds of things happen are accidents this by the see there, a series of it'll quite a common risks faced by all tankers. Iran is not one of those high on the list of Sparta's risk assessors are concerned. And the of course, this is the first thing, the United States government has said, as you said, without the evidence. So within a few is and without any evidence, the United States government wants more provoking, some sort of response from Iran, perhaps, or at least to try to galvanize public opinion to believe that Iran is a threat to the would what's really important here is yes. The fact that Shinzo Ave, the first Japanese Prime minister to visit Iran in forty one years. He goes to Iran ah shortly after the Iranian Foreign Minister visited him in Japan. In fact, Mr. Zarif visited Shinzo abbey in his home. They had a very important conversation with Shinzo obvious said that the Iranian nuclear deal is a factor of stability for West Asia. This goes directly opposed to the Trump adminis-. Stations view and what's very important here is we're not talking about a country, that's far from American the American audit. This is Japan, a reliable ally of the United States, which is not only reliant upon Iranian oil, but understands that, the warmongering in West Asia is going to be very bad, not only for Eurasia, but for the would and I think we need to understand that as Shinzo Ave is in Japan, this attack this several Taj. Whatever it is, is an rallies on the Novi jn Japanese tankers. And again as Shinzo Ave is in Iran. That's right. He wasn't there on the first time in forty one years, and he has been saying, actually interesting. This is a right-wing prime minister. This is not a person of the left he's been saying that there needs to be a return to the table. It's not only Japan saying this Amy. It's also the Europeans, the Europeans of very keen that the US not break fully from this Iran deal. The Germans in fact have been looking for noted mechanism for payments India, which is one of the largest budgets, Iranian oil had to back off because of these new very tight sanctions put in place by the US government. But the Indians are also not that interested in this new approach by the Trump administration. They would like to continue to buy oil. In fact, it's kind of 'isolation that the United States is facing its is related alongside the Israelis the Saudis and the United Arab. Emirates nobody else wants war. Nobody else wants this deal to end. And so I think it's really out of frustration that you see the United States jumped the gun come in very quickly and say that Iran is, is doing this, Ronn is doing that. And therefore, we have to retaliate. It's important to remember that in two thousand seventeen the CIA created a special unit. Call the Iran mission center run by Michael d Andry, and this is an important outfit because its entire mandate has been to ratchet up pressure on Iran. I don't know what happened to the Norwegian or thank. Oh, the Japanese thank good. But I'd be very interested to hear what the Iran mission center at the has been up to since twenty seventeen and runs. Foreign minister mohammad-javad reef tweeted Thursday, reported attacks on Japan related tankers occurred while PM obey Shinzo. Was meeting with our toll hominy for extensive and friendly. Talks suspicious doesn't begin to describe what likely transpired this morning, Iran's proposed regional dialogue forum is imperative. He said, VJ per shot. Mr. Zarif is a very capable diplomatic very reasonable person. He has been leading Iranian diplomacy, and has opened many doors to a diplomatic solution for the standoff around Iran. And I think we need to take seriously what Mr. the saying here when he uses the woods suspicious, I think we should underline that would again. I'm not saying what happened in, in the Gulf of our Moose's very clear that there are alternative explanations. We don't know what happened. We should be suspicious of the negative would forward by the US department, but we should also be suspicious about what happened, we need to ask questions, considered this form a regional standpoint, the United States, the Russians and others are in the middle of very serious diplomatic effort in Ghana stone. There are meetings of the US held in cutter, there are meetings that the. Russians of held in Moscow to dial down the almost nineteen year war that has been taking place in Afghanistan. Imagine if the United States strikes against Iran right now, it would bring catastrophe further to Ghana stone, it would open up the wounds in Iraq, and in Syria, Mr. Zuma's made it very clear that in a tack on Iran is not merely an attack on Iran. It's going to create even more catastrophe in that region. That's one of the main reasons why the Chinese are very interested in not allowing any kind of warn that region. They ever lauded stick, especially in terms of their belt and road initiative, which cuts right through this region goes three run. Nobody wants a war here. It's important for Americans to stand that the US government is deeply isolated on this issue of Iran. And on the way that the US government portrays, Iran in the rest of the would Iran is seen. As a stabilizing force in that region for some strange reason. The US government believes that Iran is an interloper. In other words, there almost eighty million Iranians who live in West Asia, and this seemed to be out of place, whereas the United States, which is, you know, thousands of miles away a portrays itself as a regional active. This is very bizarre for people around the world, and I think Americans need to understand it on Thursday, members of the House Armed Services committee from both parties said Pompeo told them in a classified briefing that the United States could use the two thousand one authorization for these military force or a you enough to attack Iran without congressional approval. This is Michigan democrat Elissa slot. Can we were absolutely presented with a full formal presentation on how the two thousand and one A M F might authorize war on Iran? Yes, I'm sir. I'm sorry, sir. Secretary Pompeo set it with his own words. The af was passed in the wake of the nine eleven attacks authorizes, the president take military action against those responsible along with any quote associated forces, your response to that VJ per shot. And what role do you think Saudi Arabia is playing in all of this? I mean look, this is very chilling. Very disturbing marching us into a war. In other words, they're marching the world into war. They're pushing Iran, the sanctions of attic, catastrophic impact on Iran's external revenues its ability to earn money. There is serious medical crisis inside the country, I think focus should be on that. We've already seen how sanctions destroyed countries how they put a lot of stress on the country, but that's not the focus of anybody's attention. In allowing people like Mr. Pompeo John Bolton. Another set the agenda here, you know, they're being allowed to say that Iran is the criminal country. Must be there for tact. I think this is very disturbing. Saudi Arabia of forces playing a lead role in this. I mentioned the Iran mission center, Mr Michael Andreas is very close to the Saudis. In fact, has. Played an important role in the drone program, and it's likely to have had some role in Saudi warned Yemen. So I mean, this is something people to consider this very quick, March to war must be stopped. The reason saying this is not just about Iran. It's about the region. It's about Eurasia and the Trump administration, I think is playing fast and loose with the facts and is being very reckless with world affairs on this in a we see the Trump administration behaving recklessly mercurially, perhaps in other parts of the world. That's true, but with Iran, I think the finger is right on the trigger and the very fact that bumpier gave this briefing should suggest to people that this is not the time to be cynical. Sick sit back and say, I don't think they're going to do it. It's very likely that the United States is going to make some strike on Iran, and that strike is going to open further the. The gates of hell for the region J for shod director of trion continental institute for social research, Fedor of

"Traffic. I'm Alan Brooks. This is the Ronn Owens report on K G O voice of reason in the bay area for forty two years now from the Ron Owens studio in San Francisco, here's home. Famer Ron Owens today. We talked with the Republican candidate for governor. John Cox, John the chronicle came out with an absolute rejection of your campaign. Does that surprise you? Or you simply say well at San Francisco, what do you expect? I guess the ladder is what I would say. It's kind of sad. I mean in a in a city that has been run down the way that San Francisco has bad. I mean, this is one of the great cities of the world rhyme. And I was there the other day, and, you know, driving through there and seeing the human tragedy on the streets fill the potholes filled roads. And of course, knowing how the cost of living is just made it impossible for, you know, average California's to even attempt to live in San Francisco for them to just turn a blind eye to that. And somehow say that Gavin Newsom, as you know, the savior of the state is just beyond me and say it has blinders is the interstate by the sensory, well one point though, and that is that if you take homelessness. That is not a state issue, although Gavin wants to make it a state issue. It is not a state issue is purely up to the city and Gavin hasn't been married for years. Maybe so, but it's an indication of his lack of management. I mean, you know, listen. Yeah. What you do is you award and promote people who do a good job. I do that my business and the new job they have maybe unrelated to their old job where maybe has a different relationship. But you at least look at what they did San Francisco was left with a ten billion dollar. Unfunded pension debt is healthy. San Francisco plan was hardly anything. It only covered a few people and was not health insurance is own website. And look, let's set it wasn't even health insurance. And you know, now he wants to try to cover everybody in California and his own plan. There was a failure. So you're not a fan of single payer, pure and simple. God. No you been at the DMV. The people who run the vegan run our healthcare and not a chance. We need a break up the healthcare monopolies the insurance company monopolies turning it healthcare over to another monopoly. Otherwise known as the government isn't at all gonna fix the problem. And tell me what you do to fix that problem. You've got to make all personal you gotta protect preexisting conditions. You can do that with the law making medical insurance non cancelable, just like life insurance. You gotta get you. Gotta get more price transparency. Get mandates price transparency people need to be able to be told what a procedure costs you shouldn't be have to go to a hospital and not be able to find out what an Mariah corn is copy cost. And you got to put patients and doctors back in charge. You know, you gotta get the power out of the big monopoly insurance companies and government and put it back in the hands of the people. I mean, that's the reason healthcare is so screwed up and out of portable and unavailable. John. Yeah. Let let me take what you said. Now, for example, I want to make sure that. That if you're covered for preexisting conditions. I don't think anybody disagrees with that. But then you talk about price transparency. I mean, I just had an MRI what good is it? If the guy tells you, oh, by the way, it's gonna cost you four thousand dollars, and you don't have the four thousand. But when it strikes me because the transparency means that they'll be price. Discrimination was being you'll be able to shop. You know? Listen MRI at four thousand dollars is a very very good example because you know, you can go if you have an insurance company negotiate better actually doing and get that the Christ should only be five hundred dollars. I mean, four thousand dollars for an MRI is ridiculous. And that's because people don't know or care what these things cost because pass off the cost onto what third party. But if there was price transparency and people knew what these things were doing. They would have more price discrimination more shopping ability. We're talking with John Cox Republican candidate for governor in California. Let's follow through a little bit more of that. So what would as governor? What would you do facing the political realities? I mean, you've got a democratic legislature. You know, it's going to be democratic, and what would you propose to change? That anyway that would work. Well, listen the legislature has to be changed. I mean, we know the interest groups that by politicians in Sacramento. And of course, they're buying Mr. Newsom as well. They're funding us campaigns. They like the way things are in California. They'd like the high housing prices. They like the fact that they control the education system that's forty seven in the nation. They like the fact that they can buy the politicians and prevent water to be available for us. John. You're giving me problems you giving me problems. What do you do as governor to change it to Sally change the legislature? We get the fundraisers out we get a legislature that actually represents us and not the interest groups I'm going to be working on that reform day. One Gavin Newsom is gonna live with that system and make it even worse that system needs to be reformed. We need to get money out of our politics. We need to get the special interests out of. Control. I'm the only candidate who's talking about getting that done. And that's the way that will get a better education system. That's the way that will make sure water and housing and electricity is moral foreseeable unavailable to us. Mr. Newsom defense the boondoggle in the central valley. I will end that and use that money to buy helicopters for Cal fire and build loads. Yeah. But when you say you'll ended what are you gonna do to end it? We're gonna I'm gonna get either the legislature the ended I'll go around him and I'll get a ballot initiative to end. But it's gonna be audited. And then ended once we audited, there's going to be a huge human cry about the waste and corruption. That's going on with that. And when that happens people are going to say from about this. Let's use that money and build roads and get our crews gestion alleviated because people are sitting on the roads to lawn burnings four dollar a gallon gasoline, and by the way, Mr. Newsom is also in favor of the gas tax, which means he doesn't care how wasteful orientation Cal trans as well. How does that mean? How does that mean that explain to me? Instead of reforming Cal trans it. Absolutely. Well, documented Cal trans has way too many supervisor in administrative positions. They are extremely inefficient building roads they spend twice with Texas does to build a mile the route. So you're gonna get the building. We'll get Cal trans the building. But we're not gonna waste of money. We're getting rid of already if you got rid of them. They can't build them. We're not get rid of said that we're gonna we're gonna make them spend the money wisely. You don't think get rid of them? You get the money spent wisely you reduce administrative costs. We also will replace and reform sequel, the California boy mental Claudia I'm calling for replacing. It was something that can work. They already give exemptions for sports stadiums from connected politicians and thunders. Let's get our roads built without the incredible red tape, and we'll get them done the fish. And then we want to have to dig into people's pockets for a huge gas. Which is pounding working Californians in poverty, but what about issues like gun control or abortion, where you're really not in step with the majority in California. And this gentleman's name is John Cox. He's the GOP candidate for governor here in California. John good to talk with you same in, Iran. Appreciate it. That's the Ron Owens.

"This is the Ronn Owens report on the voice of reason in the bay area for forty two years now from the Ronn Owen studio in San Francisco, here's hall of Famer Ron Owens joining us today senior political correspondent for the Washington Examiner. And also the senior political analyst for CNN. We're talking David Drucker, David the word Cavanaugh. Do you not want to hear that anymore? I could go without it for a couple of hours in my recollection. I cannot remember Washington being this transfixed on one issue that was ultimately unresolvable. I mean, they both said they're one hundred percent sure where do you go with that? Well, these are political questions. So for me, this reminded me of several issues that really are resolved at least in terms of the process, but not was all politically we can look at the effort to turn ObamaCare into law, the Affordable Care Act and pass in the process was over. But the battle politically raged for several years, it's still raging and I look back a few years ago when the Democrats decided to change the rules of the Senate to eliminate the filibuster for most -secutive branch nominees. The Senate wasn't such a state that for the first time I can recall there was a private closed-door meeting of all one hundred senators they can hear the grievances. But that didn't really solve any problems. And we saw the Republicans came in in two thousand seventeen may finish off the nuclear option for executive branch nominees to include. The supreme court. So these things just kind of go on and on and alternately the voters are going to render a verdict of some sort. There is a certain irony in that because I'd vote not taking place. Kevin I would never have gotten in because he would've needed sixty votes, and they weren't even close. I think you have to say it some respect at least Harry Reid who was the democratic leader the majority leader at the time that he invoked the nuclear option, which in other words means he broke the rules of the Senate to change the rules of the Senate to reduce the number of votes required to overcome filibusters for executive branch nominees that was shortsighted because just a couple of years later, you have a Republican president Republican Senate, and it rendered the democratic minority which which is you know, minority, but it's not that low. It's forty-nine seats at present powerless to do anything about Trump's nominee to fall Republicans are on board or if they lose a member. So you have Harry Reid not done that we don't know. But it's very possible. Mitch McConnell would have never touched the rules himself for either Neal Gorsuch award for a cavenaugh whoever would have been nominated. All right now. Let's talk about the long term damage. What about women and the GOP a lot of anger? Well, this is something that's been going on with women, particularly suburban women in upscale suburbs. College educated women, including married women, which is a big problem for the Republican party because they don't like the way Trump comport themselves and we're seeing that play out in house races. But we have to see how this whole thing. Plays out before we're done because there are Republican states with big Senate races. And in these races Republicans right now have the advantage because of Canada. And so it sort of depends on where you live in a country how it impacts female voters because we're not seeing a big revolt female voters in Tennessee where I just was in the past few days covering that Senate race where we're not seeing a volt of women in Missouri or Indiana or North Dakota. So it sort of depends on where you are. But where the houses contested. And there's a lot of that in California in Orange County and San Diego County that set her up the spillover. Could be problematic. But, but you know, I'd cautioned one way or the other. We're in for about a million new recycling on election day. So I wanna see where all of this is one of the dust settled about ten days from now we are talking with political analysts, David Drucker, David in terms of the long term impact. What about the question of whether or not it is Trump or cavenaugh that's going to be the main thing on people's minds when they go to vote this November or are they both the same. Well, it could be one and the same still tend to think it's going to be all about Trump. But if Republican enthusiasm and energy, which we've seen a real up kick the cabin on confirmation process became an issue about the accusers and sexual assault and Christine blazing Ford's testimony all of that has pumped up Republican enthusiasm more interest in voted in the elections. And it had an impact to where there are a lot of Republicans that don't really like Trump all that much, but they still consider themselves Republicans, and they didn't like the way Kavanagh was treated in the way to process was handled. So yeah. That works itself over a four week period. It's possible you'd have a lot of voters going floating boost really voting on that issue and not so much about Trump, and they're not all that thrilled about, but I tend to think that it'll still at the end of the day. He more about Trump and anything else. One of the thing about President Trump. How did he get to attain this power that he had because when he first got elected the Republicans, the conventional basic Republicans they didn't care for him at all. And now, they're all scared to do anything if it doesn't go along with him well because their voters like Trump, and if you're a Republican on the ballot in running for congress, and, you know, most of your voters like Trump's then it doesn't do you any good to stand up? I don't wanna use the term scanned up to disagree with him or oppose him because you're searching to lose it. And so, you know, people wanna look in wonder what's happened to the Republican party or wise, the Republican party so on board with Trump, generally, it's because that's where Republican voters are. And there are a lot of voters who voted for Trump for. Luckily, but really liked what he's done. They may not like the tweets I've had. A lot of voters told me this. They prefer to tweet they don't like his behavior necessarily think he's the most moral guy the world to put it mildly, but they look at the gender the tax cuts. The fact that trade hasn't blown up on them yet. And he's actually renegotiated NAFTA in a number of other things conservative judges and foreign policy in terms of policy versus rhetoric, and they said themselves. Hey, look, he's doing pretty much what I would want to Republican presidents do. So he's okay with me. And because of that people running for office on the Republican ticket in many cases, if they don't like Trump that's something that just they're not gonna highlight. Because it's going to get them in trouble with their own constituents. One other final question just about you as an individual when you cover all of this. Obviously, you're still a voter you do your own voting. And with that in mind. Are you surprised with the way that Trump turned out? I am I thought deep down there was this pro choice liberal in him. And boy, I mean, he's more to the right that I could imagine does that surprise you fairly. You know, my analysis of. Trump is that he's a pragmatist in this way. His looked around and figured out where he needs to be too. I get elected and win reelection. So in other words, he didn't really care about conservative judges versus liberal judges. But you know, when somebody explained to him that he could bring around skeptical Republicans if you promise to appoint conservative judges he was like fun that works for me. He's not the most religious guy in the world. Clearly when somebody told him if you do certain things for the religious right part of the Republican party's coalition then Bill stick with you. And they're willing to vote. He said sure I can do that guy. I think with Trump that you know, the danger is on the flip side is if he ever decides that all of these things perch him. There's nothing within him philosophically your ideologically wedding him to these principles if he could always change his mind and decided to go a different direction. He does that in an hour. Well, what he does is he talks on fifty sides of the issue. But so far he's basically always ended up in the same place because there's a difference between meeting Trump rally crops, and if you get a conversation with him, he's very agreeable. But he always ends up back where he thinks he needs to be what if he ever decided for whatever reason to go a different direction if he thought that would benefit his political by ability, my analysis that he'd be willing to do it. And some of the way that Arnold Schwarzenegger, governor of California in his second term went was much more centrist was Nina practically on some issues left because he had concluded that the conservative issues that he ran on more no longer helping him. And he wasn't particularly what about excellent, David. Thank you so much. Always appreciate your coming.

"This is the Ronn Owens report on cagey. The voice of reason in the bay area for forty two years now from the run Owens studio in San Francisco, here's hall of Famer Ron Owens. There's an article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday that was fascinating it's called the complex reasons that sexual assaults. Go unreported now, by way of remembering in front of the judiciary committee, you had Christine Blasi Ford. And she said she was very reluctant to report an alleged assault by the supreme court nominee. Brad Kavanagh for a very long time. It was too afraid to shame to tell anybody the details that's fairly common. Is it? Not Elizabeth Bernstein of the Wall Street Journal. Yes, unfortunately, it is very common. It's not to say that, you know, all allegations are correct or everybody remembers correctly, but it is very common in the moment at the time for many people to not report, especially younger victim. Interesting to say that the study seemed to find somewhere between five to twenty percent of sexual assault. Victims report the attacks to law enforcement, Elize eighty to ninety five percents that don't who. Don't. And it's even fewer on college campuses ninety. Percent of assault rates on college campuses. Do not get reported. These are actual assaults that do not get reported neither government statistic number of government agencies. These are very solid statistics. As far as college goes couldn't that be because very often deploys is not just to college. But in all kinds of life, the person who's actually the perpetrator is somebody they may run into exactly it's somebody, you may know. And so you're fearful of that person. The victim is worried they're going to anger that person. They're going to get attacked again. Especially in schools are worried. These victims are worried about being ostracized that we live in a community or a society that blames victims it just does. And so this is partly to get our mind around the fact that someone we would know what do something bad. So we have to sort of make sense of it. And the only way we can make sense of it in our world is that we're going to blame the victim. She must have done something wrong. So looking at being ostracized, maybe being hurt again pure pressure being blamed in some way for not being able to keep yourself safe. Even though everybody should be safe. These are big. Big reasons why people especially young people don't come forward. Very often people come forward and talking to friends or maybe even law enforcement years and years later, and from what we were told it was fairly typical when you had Christine blase Ford, and she was talking about. There are certain details. You couldn't remember you. Can remember exactly the has? But you could describe what was in it that's fairly normal, isn't it under those circumstances? And she explained to us in her testimony. Why she's a psychologist and this is true? You have something that happens to you. That is very traumatic. Those details are being seared into your brain, basically because your brain is overloaded with these chemicals in that moment, you get overloaded with chemicals that produce our fight or flight response knows chemicals sort of embedded that memory, very strongly. So you can remember the actual details of what is happening to you. But you might not remember what music played or who. Drove by if you're on a street, what somebody was wearing you don't remember this sort of ancillary details isn't one of the basic reasons that some people would just not tell anybody is because they don't wanna relive it. You don't want to relive it. Super traumatizing and this can make they attack worse. You can't you trying to get over it very strongly, and it's very very traumatizing could keep going over and over and over and sex therapist. Look, how people who've traumatic events don't go over and over and it acquired your friends and talk about it too much because each time you're doing it. You're betting new memories of that event. You're just reinforcing sort of the brain track that sort of neuron track your brain. That's remembering that, we're talking..
