A Life of Death - the Holy Executioner
"According to the legend and the mythology ghastly ones or demons who both inspire and pray on the growing inhumanity. Hannity in our world their demonic parasites that attack us through nightmares and madness they drive if people to unspeakable acts just to feed on the misery. Ghastly ones live on an island. Alan called the end of days at the edge of hells fast black ocean. That's the folklore says Father Francis work found out that it was all true. The ghastly ones were real and the danger they presented to humanity. It's closer than he had ever imagined. He's evil creatures. Creatures used followers and colts and emissaries as their hands in our world. Emissaries were human beings corrupted with a little all piece of the devil a moving slithering clump of inhuman cells nestle deep inside of them this shock to his system propelled father rourke into a secret religious order one that claimed they would take take the fight to the adversary. No matter the cost Jeremiah fifty one twenty says Um foul art my battleaxe and weapons of war with the will I break into pieces the nations and with the will I destroy Kingdoms Francis Rourke pledged his very soul to being one of those holy weapons of war and he was willing to take the fight to the shores of hell. If he had to and verily he would end up going further at he ever thought possible drinking whiskey in the kitchen telling scary stories stories around the fire music monsters and mayhem Keller's cannibals and cults fearful fiction and furious fact toll tails and terrible terrible truths. This is a scary home companion. The years nineteen eighty five in the order they all bowed only to one father the big guy our father who are in heaven with that in mind. Father Rourke kept his priest collar you're but he turned in his title. Every man in the order was a brother in every woman sister of all races and nationalities because cardinal signal hume their leader firmly believe that God's people were all one people initially most of works time with spend in the fortress actress either in study in prayer or serving the local community in addition to running the secret militant order an orphanage and a school. This church also ran a food bank and a free meals for kids program. rourke really liked picked this. He understood that doing good deeds in combating evil. Were not just equally important. They were in fact the same the thing he spent most of his time poring through books journals documents devouring everything he could find about the ghastly ones their history and their emissaries into our world. He also served meals. You took out the trash. He scrubbed bathroom floors as did almost every other member of the order except for Cardinal Hume and for Nemesis the people in that arm of the order they stated laser focused they were GonNa Lot and they very rarely interacted with any other another aspect of the church or the order rourke found himself spending considerable time down in the trophy room certain books he wanted to read never allowed to leave that room whenever he was there he always forced himself to look at the withered bodies entombed in glass coffins. Cardinal Hume left them on display for reason he believed the hardest truths needed to be confronted affronted the most directly each of these bodies belonged to an emissary whenever they could the order always removed moved tumor from the head of an emissary but in some cases it was just too dangerous or they were too powerful and they needed to be sealed up alive. Rourke never got used to being being around these things these slugs and the jars these little pieces of evil that had been capture over the last one hundred fifty years there were so many of them well over two hundred and every member of the order was required to pray in their presence regularly. They could never lose focus on who they were in what it was. They were fighting tumors. They had a they had a power to them and I keep using the word. Tumor can't think of another word that better suits what these things appear to be but this is not cancer. It isn't really a tumor. We you just don't have a word for it same thing with slugs. They move sluggishly in the uis inner slimy. They're not slugs. They're not tumors. I there's something completely and utterly alien and being in the same room with these things made rox works skin crawl. He couldn't imagine what it must be like to have something that was alive. Burrowing burrowing through your brain matter siphoning off of you were these things passengers where they send you did the exert any control over for the host and if so how much these were the answers that they all sought rourke spent his first six six months just learning the ropes learning what the order was all about and he came to quickly find that this place felt more like a home to him than anyplace ever had these people all of these people they were kind and generous servants of God and yet they were strong. None of them were afraid of a fight. None of them were afraid to die for their cause came to pass that Francis. This is a very popular name around the order and so roy began to refer to himself as brother Frank instead status quo for brother Frank Change when cardinal hume called him up to the office powerful woman had contacted the order through back channels and was requesting a meeting a meeting with frank rourke in particular. This woman's name was Lila Ambrose Rourke had been doing a lot of reading about her recently. She'd spent many years many years. It's as one of the most sadistic and feared of all the ghastly cult leaders before allegedly turning over a new leaf. If could someone like Lila Ambrose. Someone who wants proudly carried the moniker of the skin merchant ever really start fresh rourke was dubious as was the cardinal but ambrose claimed to have invaluable information to trade and curiosity is a bigger bitch even than she rourke met met Lila Ambrose in a park. It was a place of her choosing on a bright and sunny Saturday afternoon. He found her waiting waiting for him on a park bench. That couldn't possibly have been more picturesque. Even if Norman Rockwell himself painted there were even kids playing playing touch football behind him. Rourke shook her hand and sat down next to her immediately counted four different snipers on on four different nearby buildings. Yes I if they were for him. She assured him that they weren't she had made more than her fair share of enemies over the years so she never went anywhere without a full SWAT team. Security detail in tow rourke was not at all target in fact she had asked for him specifically. She liked him because she remembered how he had taken. I- They were done which is book away from Him All those years ago it had made done which so furious while ambrose an eye redone which had a very long complicated history with one another the fact that done which loathed rourke that much much was enough for her. She'd even brought Frank. Cup of coffee thanked her for it but he didn't drink. It seem that she liked that. Wireless said that she had information. She cleaned up her act. She put her past behind her but she knew that she still had to make immense. She wanted to give information to the order about many of the gas leak colts that she she had dealt with over the years with the express wish that this information the acted upon by Nemesis keep in mind at this point. Lila Ambrose is a FAB glamorous fifty five year old publicly. She has never once had to take any responsibility for any of the horrible horrible shit she's ever done as far as the world knew she was a a wealthy charitable socialite philanthropist who happened to own a lot of firearms companies and security firms her past ties with murder colts and her current alleged ties with white power groups. These things were not widely known frank new them brother. Frank told her flat out that he didn't believe her someone like Lila Ambrose does not suffer a crisis of conscience and and they most certainly don't start offering up things for free dumped out to coffee and she really liked that. She explained that she knew the order. Subcontracted a lot of security work all around the world. She wanted that work for her people. All at her firms also much more importantly. She wanted IRA done which she knew he. It was still out there somewhere and she wanted him alive. Even if it took years she needed a promise that if the order order ever found IRA done which they would deliver him to her ambrose said that more than anything she just wanted to be friends with the order they shared a common enemy and they both wanted the same thing the ghastly ones dead and their island burned cinders so it only made sense to pool their resources and work together frank told her that he would take this information to the order and come back with an answer but inside he he already knew what was going to happen. They were going to make a deal with one devil to fight another They did a do you know what nemesis means it means being the inescapable agent of someone's destruction destruction in the case of the order nemesis were shock troops strike team the death squad and it was frank roar new-home. Nemesis live down in the tunnels and rooms carved into the bedrock under the fortress they had had their own private chapel their own private armory barracks training rooms and of course the trophy ru at this point frank hadn't touched begun fifteen years the we didn't see how he fit in with the soldiers but his connection with ambrose made him the direct liaison on between her and the Team Cardinal Hume was head of the church and the order and ultimately approved everything but the leader of nemesis was very imposing none called sister Sandra and she required very little oversight. Frank was introduced around the team. Although they were a rough and tumble group it were warm and gracious every one of them they all join hands and prayer and then they got to know each other a little bit there was sister. Sandra and her second in command sister v Frank had already met brother Rene Brother Enoch. There was a brother Francis who was different from the three other brother France's. He'd already met sister. Maria Korea was a medical doctor brother. mickle was a veteran pilot and then there were three veiled nuns all experts snipers who had taken vows of silence and were referred to collectively as the vespers there wasn't a a lot of time to break bread and enjoy fellowship however because as a show of good faith. Lila Ambrose had given them some information about an active active ghastly cult they call themselves the seven o'clock society and were devotees of Tonton macoute the team left that very night flying up to a private airstrip in Quebec before taking a chopper out to a remote patch of woods from there they went in on foot quietly and they staked out a farmhouse surrounding area. They watched they waited. They counted on at heads. Lila's information proved to be one hundred percent correct two nights later the the team went in under the cover of darkness sister. Sandra led the Saudi rourke was armed and wearing Kevlar vestments but he was was going in merely as an observer nemesis had been working together for months in some cases years they were an agile team a strong team and he was there only to watch and to learn had expected some initial stealthy approach in a quiet ingress sister Songa. She was much more of a shock and awe type of field leader. She believed their adversary very required direct action and a show of power sister. Sandra always commanded from the front rourke with struggling to keep up with her. She left the woods they all left the cover of the woods and started trudging across the Tundra towards the farmhouse. Sanger carried a gun half as big as she was draped casually over one shoulder as if she wasn't even going to need it sister V at her left carried a flame thrower the tanks filled with napalm holy water and they had the words blessing housing and a curse stenciled down the side the whole squad were collars or habits and body armor adorned with the emblem of the order to bloody swords in a crucifix each bullet had been personally blessed by the cardinal in every clip with stamped damped with the holy cross based on the RECON. They knew there were forty cult members inside that wasn't counting the guards. They had outside or the men on the perimeter. Well the men who had been on the perimeter at this point they were dead as the armed contingent approach the front door and got within fifty feet the cult guards finally noticed them and started to raise a hue and cry but they they weren't able to do so much as open their sinful mouths before their heads started popping light corks the vespers that Holy Holy Trinity of Silent Warriors were all expert marksmen arranged in a triangle pattern on the high ground almost a quarter mile away sister song in the crew knew they were able to walk without fear through the Valley of death because they were protected from on on high by these fifty caliber guardian angels. At this point bribery knock and brother Rene took point kicking in the front doors wars starting to execute the people in the North X. The calm in easy precision is cultists. These EH worshipers of the child snatching Demon Tonton macoute were mostly mental patients and ex cons. They were outmatched outgunned outgunned surrounded and caught completely off guard the order took the house in under a minute and and sister Sandra commanded the room like a general without raising her voice and without touching her gun she put put the remaining cultist some eighteen them on their knees hands on heads in neat little rows bribery knock went to the man at the front of the first row. You got down on his knees in front of this man he asked him do you renounce the demon and accept. Jesus is Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior. The man's spit on brother knock brother. Rene executed handed him one bullet behind the ear. They went to the next cultist. Do you renounce the demon and accept Jesus Christ into your your heart as your Lord and Savior the woman swore at him. Rene executed her one bullet it behind the ear and on down the line men and women old and young some of them just teenagers some of them elderly every single one given a chance chance before dying it was intense it rourke wasn't deeply troubled by any of it not until the end and the last one left. She couldn't have been more than sixteen and she was so frightened. Lightened Enoch got on his knees in the asked her girl do you renounce the demon and accept accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior she wept and said that she he did knock held her small trembling hands and his and they prayed together right there on on the ground in front of the order. He saved her soul. Enoch gave her a warm smile and he hugged her. Go with God my dear girl. He awaits you and then brother. Rene executed her one in bullet behind the ear on the Ri- back sister. Sandra explained it to Rourke. No one gets out alive ever. It's only a question of how they die and to her the fact that they had saved the wretched soul of one girl that made this day a joyful day when rourke thought about that we prayed about it. He started to see how it made sense. What a gift to be able to save David Sole on the very threshold of Hell. I Marianne Simpson with part two of my investigation into the recent events surrounding journalist Tana's cry last week. I talked to her former producer del Dugan who described meeting Tana's her escape from the mental facility his story chilled me but not for the reason you might think what was inside the jar it it was the tumor he found in Henry's head. It had been in that jar in that save for twenty years. It was still crawling around about a year ago. I had a very strange interview with a woman who claimed to be hiding from eleven forces and shadowy shadowy government agents. It was all talk and no proof so as a journalist. I was wary although she was one of my I am more fascinating interviews. I never believed her until recently in light of some of the other stories I've covered I revisited visited that interview and found that it played very different for me now. He said no one would believe me that that the only people who would believe me were them them he was wrong. Though there are other people government people they know about it. They know where it comes from. You read Daddy's book yes. I did then you know what's in the jar. It's green and black powdered. Richard Emeralds in oil. It seems you know after listening to Dell dougans encounter with Tana's cray. There were too many similarities celebrities to dismiss. This woman claimed to be the daughter of Dr Kaku the prison doctor who performed the infamous autopsy on barbed wire Henry and subsequently became a recluse. How were the delusional ramblings of two women so very disconnected so so very similar. It's wins in your blood and makes a nest in your brain so it can tell you what to do it whispers and it sings. I think that's why daddy killed himself to make the singing stop. What actually is it. It's it's the devil a little piece of the devil and he wants it back door. Cochran was not the only one on who repeated these ideas barbed wire henry's fellow inmates vividly recall what he said lived inside of his head and even even thought that his madness might have spread to others some nights. We talked told me there was something living in his head could feel feel it crawling around when he tried to sleep said people came to see him from over there. I could hear them talking but it wasn't in word doc and understand staying they held black mass and that's how I heard a hundred voices all chanting once. Thank you babies on the shore of a black island. I heard it all could even smell it low tide on an all whatever these things are they are connected to this mythological island and they are connected to the minds of serial killers it would seem the island is not symbolism but an actual place place in the devil's triangle so was it any surprise that that's where ten is cray went or is it any surprise that I followed since her information information had been so good rourke was given the green light to make the deal with Lila Ambrose immediately. She started feeding him inside knowledge on dozens of colts. This stream of information led to a series of bloody incursions by Nemesis amasis from the years nineteen eighty seven through about nineteen ninety that came to be called the campaign over the course of the campaign campaign they hit twenty six different cults and exterminated them along with scores of other institutions businesses banks and false churches that serve to cover in finance those colts raids all followed a similar blueprint blueprint shock and awe with the vespers providing cover from on high as the team took down the cult and put down each member one one by one and then burned older remains on the way out the only variation they had came in the a final confession execution ritual when feel Dr Sister Maria would find something moving in the skulls of the dead nemesis used headshots for their executions partially because they were quick and painless but also because they nicely opened up a brain pan so that sister Maria could get in there look around for one of those repulsive living tumors and she found them every so often not on every single sortie but often enough they always had to check every single one of them even in the most extreme cases like when they killed one hundred sixty in Kyoto Japan at a temple for the woman with the split mouth. The campaign quietly raged essay quietly because they utilized all of their resources to vet and observe. You've every single target down to the smallest detail before they went in the plan hard fight easy. That was sister. Some Grizz call hole in response with her team in Lila's information had yet to steer them wrong in Russia. They took out two different splinter cell's devoted to the ravenous one the things rourke saw on that mission the things those those cultists had been doing and what had happened to them when they set foot on his E-e-e-e-no island exchange the way he thought about these the people who months later they moved in on an eighteen person cult family based around the mirror man in these wretched sadistic animals have been responsible for a daycare shooting some months earlier this time rourke asked brother. Rene takeover and act as the executioner. He pulled the trigger trigger on all eighteen of them that night once he picked up that executioners gun he never put it back down several other colts for Tonton macoute in the skin weaver fell under the boot heels of Nemesis Ambrose rose had a specific hatred for them. They also exterminated devotees of profane botanist in the baby dole the bickering butchers the surgeon festering John in time they started to come across more and more abandoned sites and it wasn't wasn't that ambrose had started giving them bad intel it was that word was spreading. The ghastly colts were going underground. They were experiencing something that was altogether new for them. The fear of being hunted nemesis had become the Boogeyman for the bogeyman of the world righteous scourge calling rolling the wicked using a policy of scorched earth and leaving behind piles of bodies and ruins of unholy churches all around around the world wherever the devil got a foothold nemesis met it with fire and pain and brother.

No doubt mean history of ERI. Underrated. You know name that you don't hear a lot. Yeah. He could he could go. Absolutely. Well, I mean as prolific as you are as an actor boxing is really your your heart. Man. Right. You know, people asked me that question. It was what I started out doing at eleven at the fifth street gym in Miami. And I had a lot of great role models. They are you know with Ali in Jimmy Ellis. In absolute Gundy injured, yet Dundee didn't train me that wasn't that good. He I was analogy there. You know? Louis Rodriguez Willie Pastrana before that and. It all started for me when Willie used to come to the boys club and give us lessons when we all amateur fighters, and I really liked I liked it a lot and I really wanted to play baseball. But that didn't work out because the whole team thing. The box in but the box, and I can honestly say. Because you're not come from very dark place and. All the dudes. I grew up with around me, and they ended up in a darker place and the boxing really gave me a discipline in a. Something to let the steam out in and something to take away the shame. Yeah. And it, you know, kinda save my life in a in a very big way. Yeah. You know? I totally get that man.

Very brutal man that was not my father and aided for a decade. He did some he had a lot of damage, and so you. You live with shame. And there's nothing there's nothing worse than living with shame. So what you do is. You make decision you gotta break or you gotta get strong. And then you're going after you get strong, you're doing at hard. And then when I started with the acting, you know? Had gotten so hard that I didn't realize that it kind of fended other people and my therapist explained to me that. That you're pry, pride and your self respect and your honor. Can turn on you become a weakness. And so you've got gotta be careful that because. He will then people get afraid, right? Which is what which which is what was the whole point to begin with, you know? Yeah. And then you gotta reinvent yourself. Okay. I don't need to do this. I don't need to make eye contact with every motherfucker that walked by. I don't need to you know, I can just learn to live peacefully. Yeah. 'cause you know, he said to me one day, you ain't going to war, brother. And you got a lot of armor on you. You know, you know. It's like when I act it's it it's on, you know, it's it's I heard some active one time say it's not competitive. Well with me it is. Yeah, I'm going to grind you up. Turn you into dust?

It was an experience they still do that the boxing clubs. Absolutely absolutely slow the Golden Globes in New York. It's one of the biggest not as what might not as much used to be.

Not good fight. Yeah. I was. What did you think? Mick. Well, first of all I had like three dozen gypsies sitting next. Oh.

He's back and forth. You. Whatever. And I'm sitting next to actual rows of gypsy comes over just sits on his lap. And I had to get off his lap. You know, and. The fight was interesting. I I mean, you got to two guys six seven six nine whatever people said to me. Would you take? I talked to Freddie who worked a little bit with Tyson. And Freddie said he liked the way that that Tyson would switch up because Tyson's a he's a converted southpaw. And you say what is most effective punch was basically what he would switch up and he throw a straight right Javan straight straight left punch. But he didn't switch up a lot against wilder because of wildest big looping right hand, sometimes while to shoot it straight or do put over the top so dangerous for him to turn. Yeah. Southpaw on heavy. So you didn't see him. Switch up as much as you had prior fights interesting. Yeah. The good fight. Then he it's a media rematch. Yes. Cool. So we're going to fight again. It's also like Tyson for he's awesome guy fun. Great name. And he's had his ups and downs on that. Yeah. The respect. What I like is the respect the both fighters gave each other at the amazing. Yeah. It wasn't all this this MAC talk. It was it was pure, genuine respect. And you know at the end of the day. You know, what do you think about all the talking like with counter or Floyd or I don't I don't have the temperament to stand there? And listen to it. Yeah. Yeah. So I would prefer not to say anything. Anybody just remained quiet. But it's really hard when somebody's three inches away talking. She lock it smack in push as part of the game too, though. Yeah. Yeah. The game to you deal with. They've got a guy to depends. I do content. So good. Yeah. Yeah. And we'd lose it. You know? Yeah. I get it though, piss me off like the could be encounter fight.

In this neighborhood, which was mostly retirees. But. Although he might have looked like anyone else. He was not. Any one else. He lived under a different name now. But his real name was Dr Neil Wallis. Noted anthropologist lecturer and author. Who One day slaughtered his entire family and started a new life as an occult serial killer called the Herro specs. He walked back to his apartment. Silently evaluating everyone that he saw. He would look at their soft bellies. Think about the treasures inside. The Harrow spects. Spent years. Killing people in the most vile way imaginable. He had been hunted and caught. He had been caged and studied. He had been released and watched. Many more years passed. And then A few months ago he had been given a new lease, a new purpose, a newly revitalized calling. The priest with the red hands. A man who at one time walked on the side of angels a man who at one time had captured the Herro specs. This man. Had come to him with glorious offer. An offer which brought him here to Miami to this small humble apartment. where he had been making connections talking to new. Friends. Setting plans. And traps. And all the while having the most wonderful dreams. He was part of a family now. Network. The priest was building something bigger than all of them. Down to the corner and so the front of his apartment building. Across the street was a car that he recognized. A dark sedan with tinted windows with two suited agents sitting inside of it. The DRO had somehow found out. He was here. They had sent people around every. So often every few days to survey him. The priest had told him not to worry. Pretend you don't see them Neil. Let them think they have you unaware that gives you the power. You wander past them. Seemingly Unaware and the sixty three year old man. made his way up the stairs. He. Stood in front of his apartment door for a couple minutes. Looking back and forth. Making sure that no one had followed him up. Finally. He felt comfortable enough to unlock the deadbolt and enter. He went into the kitchen to put his groceries into the fridge. When he turned around. He saw a man in an eye patch. Sitting on a chair in the middle of the room. Dr Neil Wallis. Closed. Casket Jack said his victim. I assume you know who I Herro specs. eyeballed. Rack. Now now Jack asked. You can come and sit down on this chair and we can talk. Or? I can beat the ever loving shit out of you and then sit you on this chair and we talk. Why don't we play Nice? The older man sat in the metal framed dining room chair. His hands. Dammit, they were trembling he. He knew. This was coming. This was part of the plan, but still he couldn't stop shaking. Jack had a gun, but he held at his side he didn't. Aim at the man as he knelt down beside him and. Carefully. Cuffed him to the frame of the chair. Four sets of handcuffs to for each arm. When the Heru specs had been secured. Jack set his gun down on the counter next. To the machete. You pulled a matching chair from the dining room table over into the kitchen sat in front of the Harrow specs. He didn't talk not I. Just. Stared at the man taking a man. Jack was. Motionless no twitching fidget in ticks quirks like he was. Carved from stone as he stared into the eyes of his pray. I'm, not. One of them you know. The Harrow specs said. One of WHO The emissaries I'm not an emissary. Oh Jack. nodded. See I, got the impression that you weren't. You have a Sadness about you don't you. Long Hungry. Long denied. STARVING FOR IT I've actually been seeing this a lot of late. They. String, you will law. That's what they do. For you they've been dangling a carrot for how long? Twenty years. And Look at you. You're nothing. Harrow spects looked. At the floor. You're right. I'm nothing I. I don't know anything I. I can't tell you anything. Well. We'll see about that. Jack got to his feet. What are you calling yourself these days Jerry Green, is that right? I knew Jerry wants. I killed. Jack picked up the machete. Neil. I'm going to ask you some questions and. I need to be sure that I get honest answers. So if you lie to me. Or make me unhappy in any way at all. I Going to chop off your arm. Right here at the wrist. See what I did hear. And he pointed to the cuffs. A set around. I securing hand. And a second set further up just above the elbow and locked in. So tightly that they were cutting off the circulation to the fingers. Tight enough to act as sort of ternate. Herro specs struggled in his seat polling yanking but. Handcuffs hold fast. Jack stood in front oven let. Neil tire himself out. And then he said. Just to show you that I'm not kidding. I'm going to cut off one of your arms. Right now. And then. and. Then he did just that. Although. Neil. Wallis was a slightly built man within arm's. Still took three solid wax of the machete take his left hand off at the wrist. A machete is not an efficient tool for limb removal. You See. But then again, that was the point. The handcuffs did their job remarkably well, staunching the blood flow more than Jack had expected. He took his seat again. Facing this hail week man. Howard we find. Rourke. How do I find the priest? He got instant honesty. I. Don't know. I swear to God I, don't know. Is usually by the water, I can tell I can hear it when he calls me. But I only talked to him on the phone haven't seen him in months. I. Only saw him the one time. Jack staring at him. Is, one I blinked. Only rarely. I, believe you Neil. Who Have you met here and don't act like you don't know what I mean. Who? I. I met the boy rourke sends the boy or handsome. Nick. When he has a note for me. last week, I picked up a woman from the airport from Atlanta. Karen her name was. I met with the painter and the Games men and. I saw the book men once. I didn't I didn't meet him. I saw him. And he told Jack the name of the Marina. Jack pressed him for more information and. It all felt genuine. But. None of it was very useful for anything other than deep background. The older man. Kept stealing looks at the front door. Jack asked him. Are you waiting for someone to save you? Because no one is coming to save you. Those agents out front don't care about you. Rourke doesn't care about you. This new family you think you have. They're just using you to draw me out. They're not going to save you. They're giving you to me, right. You get that. You're a sacrifice at my altar. You have nothing to tell me. That's why they gave you to me. You have nothing. You don't matter not to them. Not to anyone. Those bickering butchers you spent so long trying to appease. Don't even know who you are. I am the only one who gives a damn about you all. And I am going to make sure. The legacy you end up with. Is Not the one you wanted. Not The one that you worked so long for. twirled machete. Something Weird happened at the corner of his mouth that. Might have been a SMIRK. Might have been. You raised the blade chop off the other hand of the Herro specs. And the older man held up his chin indignant. You won't break me Jack. I don't need to break you kneel. I'm more than happy to just chop off your other hand and present your worthless courts to the world as a tribute. To hand collector. You. Will ultimately be remembered as a worshiper of Martin rose who you mother Fucker Neil Wallace almost overturn the chair jerking his body forward. Jack had been searching for nerve and boy howdy had he found it? That son of a bitch jumped the line. He never served. Not like me. He never went to the fucking island before he never touched the dweller in the rock. He jumped the line and he took my reward. Jack said. You're. Not Ghastly. One. You're not an emissary. You'd never even had your own Colt. Did you you're really? Nothing. This time. It only took two strokes to chop off Neal's hand at the wrist. Once again he didn't bleed as much as he should have but this time around he had less blood to lose. Pale and gaunt. The HERRO specs Leaned forward in his chair. Lamp and unconscious. In spiraling towards extinction. Jack took his seat. And watch the old man die. As he was washing his hands and rinsing off the machete in the kitchen sink. The House phone started to ring. And there was no doubt at all in his mind. that it was for him. He hits the Speaker Button with the handle of the machete. Hello Jack. Do you know who this is. Although, they had never spoken before. Jack knew exactly who it was. The man formerly known as Frank Rourke. who had been reborn. As the priest with the red hand. Love. Joe. Some three hours earlier. Jack had walked past those two DRO agents sitting in the dark sedan. On his way into the apartment building. The female agent, the passenger seat immediately made a call to her superior. The one eyed man just arrived she said. Supervisor put her on hold and made a call to his superior who in turn made a call to supervising agent for the cell. Kevin Kolja. Special Agent Kevin Kolja spoke with the field agents personally. Direct communication and elimination of extra links on the chain were keystone of DRO field operations. Everything was need to know. The other supervisors were cut off so that Kolja could get the sit rep from source. When the female agent finished. Cogez said noted agent. I needed to maintain your cover. Watching, contact me directly with. No matter what happens do not intervene. You Watch. And you report to me and me alone? Are we clear Kolja took a different phone from the back of his desk. This was a high tech burner of sorts. A disposable encryption device and scrambler only capable of calling one person. He pressed the Green Button and he waited. It rang for three minutes. But eventually. She answered. Lila Ambrose. Special Agent Kolja she said. I trust you have what I want. Yes ma'am he said. He is in Miami. He's found the Herro specs. And he gave her the address. Keep. Your people away. No matter what she snapped she hung up on. Coach support himself a drink. Talking, to her always gave him the shakes. Lila hung up the phone and had one of her men bring her another dedicated line. Lila was the head of her organization. Of course she was the bankroll the visionary, the power, the driving force. She was the boss of bosses. And no one of any sense would dare say otherwise. But while Lilo was the warlord. sadie Jane was the sword. Her Junkyard dog her and force her executioner. Albeit a well mannered one. Sadie, answered her phone quickly. Yes Miss Ambrose. Are you back. Yes ma'am we just landed. I need you in Miami. It's Jack. SADIE scrunched up one corner of her mouth a little bit concerned in somehow. Lila heard that change of expression. She asked you know who closed Casket Jack is right. Yes ma'am, we were actually just discussing him on the flight. How fast can you to Miami? Three hours tops. sadie. This is priority one. Yes ma'am I understand. I want him alive Sadie, I want him with us. Everything else is secondary. Yes ma'am I understand. Don't give me that shit young lady. This is not another search and destroy. You had your fun. This is an extraction I need you to find. Jack. sadie. Manny, Cortes in Oregon cray left the private airstrip in an unmarked bulletproof panel. Van. With Florida law enforcement plates. In the last twelve hours they had collectively. killed well over a hundred men and they were all dog tired. But orders were orders. Manny took the wheel cray had shotgun Sadie road towed in the middle of the back. While the other to clean guns, sharp knives on the drive into Miami. Manny fiddled with the radio and tried to find some soul music. None of them talked about what was really on their minds The fact that within the last hour. The long black veil and Lila had both given them the same command. Find. Jack Jack Hung up the phone. They hadn't spoken long and in fact. Jack. Hadn't spoken a single word. The, priests said. Did you enjoy your gift. He was a peace offering I'm sure you understand. If you go through his brain pan as I know you always do. You will not find anything amiss. because. I can't give you too valuable a gift, kanae. What you seek is price beyond riches. But I can give it to you. After a fashion. I can give her to you jack. You and Becky. Sweet supple screaming Becky. You can be reunited. Together again. Just follow boy. There was a knock at the door. A young boy waited in the hallway outside for. Who couldn't have been more than nine maybe ten. He was missing most of his teeth. Flashed mouth full of Shiny Pink Empty Gums. Without word, the boy walked away. Jack followed. Down the steps across the street past the DRO agents. Towards the water. sadie had the dropper two blocks off well behind the DRO agents. She knew that they had been ordered to watch not intervene but she also knew that she wasn't supposed to know that. So she had to act like she didn't see them while keeping an eye on. She snapped her gum. She walked and twirled her finger in the corner of her wig. Constantly. Looking down at her cell phone not to actually check at the screen was dark. She was just using the reflection to make sure the agents were staying in place. She almost bumped into Jack as he left the building. He was following kid. She rolled her eyes and side and said excuse you. And kept walking down the sidewalk. Jack followed boy across the street. She didn't break stride nor did she looked back She called the boys in the van and made sure that they had is on Jack? Manny was staying with the van craves going out on foot. So now, they contract Jack from three different vantage points. This was an extraction, not a kidnapping. Based on the trail of carnage in desecrated corpses, he had left in his wake. Jack was not a man that they wanted to try and duct. Less. Absolutely. Necessary. When out of sight of the agents sadie finally doubled back cut through side alley she told the boys to keep following. To Watch Jack. But to wait until, she could assess the situation personally. Cray came through her earpiece. sadie. You are GONNA WANNA. See this. In a small park. Overlooking series of both houses on the shore of the bay. The priest with Red Hands Savarona. Park Bench, and took in all the wonderful sights and sounds around him. So many happy families so many children playing. He watched them play. Although. He had all the memories of IRA done which. And could feel. Taste the ugly residue of his predilections. Decreased, had no such hunger. It was not that he value the lives of children anymore than other human life. He just did not crave them. In that particular colonel fashion. He did love the teeth though her that he couldn't shake for some reason. He took an all toyed tin from his breast pocket. And shook out a child's tooth into the palm of his hand. dropped it into his mouth. Gently started to suck on it. Now, of course, the boy was different. The boy was a keepsake from his first night in this new life. Done, which had taken that boy with ill intent. But the priest had seen a greater purpose in the child. To make him useful. To make him an emissary. All the others that depre- shepherded were allowed. No such shortcuts. He had given Dr Mesh a book full of secrets to start him down the dark path.

Herald. A. Breed of emissary for the ghastly ones. He needed ACOLYTES. Loyal foot soldiers and so this foul priest had gone out into the world. To seek out the broken. The lonely those plagued with dangerously morbid curiosity. And he activated them. He pointed them towards their destinies. In recent decades. The enemies of the nightmare people had grown in strength in organization in communication they were fighting back in ways humanity had never before been capable. The Evil Chaos Marshall by IRA done which. Was Legendary. Decades worth of horror in service to the end of days, hundreds upon hundreds recruited to the dark path.

Lila that Judas that turncoat was growing in power and strength and building her whole life around destroying the end of days. The priest couldn't settle for just striking their enemies down.

She's getting lubricated on a little main gray right now. So with your alcohol, spike it though, I have to say, I'm not a sweet drink. So I had a half a bottle of vodka. And now, it's better. I love her. Strong was invented a mixture. Twenty. I'm looking down here. Everyone knows Wayne's world. But True Lies, man. And task what a fantastic movie. What have I mean, you you like Tom Arnold? That's how good that. You're. Like, tell them funniest best stuff ever. Did was that movie that movie the mixture of comedy and action and just so so so incredible you plan to have awesome? And that's hang go that the Tango God, it was such a fun movie now movie that most people don't bring up, but I watch all the time Harley Davidson and the Marlboro man because. Insane movie and for people let me just say this. There's a whole group of dudes. This is the realm. This is the realm of this. This is sort of forty to fifty five year old white dude round the guys who like to watch roadhouse over and over again and point break. We're watching it and it semi ironic way. But we're also quietly enjoying it. It's a tool tune of a movie that I mean, like, I don't think I've ever seen the whole movie. It's it's for those director for those of us who cherish those kinds of movies like Cobra and stuff like Stallone's got a bunch of those kind of moves this movie not on anyone's menu. It should be because it is sanely comes up if that's what you like this sort of nineties ironic, like two big action guys insane scenes all the time the premise. Tom Sizemore time size. It's Burbank pack, the years two thousand and one like this. I don't even know what the movies it's unclear what the movie's about. But either way I drops that make you see the world in a better over showing some synthetic Trautmann's purple. That's getting all over town eyedrops. That's what it was also air wolf, I didn't even know you're on air. Yes. And he just passed away. Didn't he know? Jan Michael Vincent, Michael, Vincent. He was beautiful. Were you? Did you get dude? Guest arc or something. I was a guest star. And I just started out innocent little thing from Hawaii, and I play his girlfriend KiKi Tanabe. And I'm supposed to a KiKi. Yes, kiki. That's me. I'm so I go and give them the peck on the cheek and he turns and he goes. Gives me the tongue art thought. I was going to die like from from, you know, alcohol. Exactly a little low cocaine. Gosh, she I was so shocked. I didn't know what to do like a deer in headlights show hash to Michael was like, wow. Wow. We're looking at a picture. He was like Brad Pitt before Brad Pitt in in the in the looks department and a mad angle on him. He was better. I'm guessing he would attempt to make out with every coast are right female. Because he was good looking. So if if it said in the script, a kiss, or pack. They just go for it. He did as he had a good laugh is that is that a common theme where like a guy says I mean, it's kinda like that Al Franken backstage dang like, hey, we have to rehearse this kiss. You know, and the guy goes, well, it's always a beautiful. It's always someone is a couple years younger and a lot better looking than you. And someone is going we need to rehearse this. Specifically kind of a little open window to try something. Do you try? Banyans? Well, I not recently, it's been more respectful. But yeah. In the beginning, definitely, you know, will you came here at what age seventeen so you're like seventeen from Honolulu. Hawaii a little pebble in the middle of the ocean. Did I know of such so you you come here. And I mean must be an avalanche of whatever all the horror stories you hear the metoo and stuff. I don't mean that anyone accomplished it. But I'm saying there must have been every producer in every whoever I offers. I got offers to get me a -partment in a car and a monthly stipend. If I would just let him come. Visit me I'm like anybody. You mean casting directors and every titans of business real estate moguls? Who knows you know? It's like, it's I mean, they see you coming in and your eyes are. You know, why you know? And and you don't know who the bad guys. Are you want to believe in the best in people? And you know, my sister moved here years later, and and it just really she couldn't stand it. She's like how can you deal with this? And I said, I've a, you know, bad long term, memory know, forget stuff just forget it to save myself. Don't you think in in that way, your innocence almost protects you because you don't know what you don't know. So you wouldn't you wouldn't take anyone up on that? But it also gets you into stupid situations where you're in a locked room with someone and you're going, I didn't know that that door buzzed behind me. When I walked like how? Like, how am I now on the wrong side of the locked door? How do I get out? Matt lauer. Like. No. It was not Matt Lauer. It's a story to share with us. Adam. God, you wish you and Matt Lauer, wow. Never unsee. This is breaking news. No, I I've never really been too pushy that way, but I gotta tell you haven't thought about he'd been pushed a little bit of a little bit of a two way street. I gotta say like when you're on MTV for an hour night every night, and you go to have a su- for man show bit. And there's a couple of chicken around. Do whatever you want. If I can meet Dr drew. But I'm punked. Yeah. There is. Couple of pushy gals out there happens future ex-husband committee or committeea. Who's gonna pay for my baby currently carrying? So I never I never judge in the reason. I never judge. Yes. You do. Why have two? You know, what I'm saying is this when I was an, and I think it's all about the base. I don't know what your family with the base of you need a super strong base of a family because if you took me at seventeen or eighteen my family was a mass everyone was all over the place. I didn't have any kind of religious upbringing. I didn't have any pride. And then have a base. It wasn't like, oh, I can't disgrace the good name of Corollas, whatever. And if somebody came around some forty year old chick said, I'll leash a corvette and put you in an apartment. I be like, yes. Yes. Absolutely. I'm one hundred percent down with this plan. I will do whatever we will do whatever if someone gave me a Manila envelope and said, I need you to bring this back from Mexico, and they go around thousand dollars. I'd be like I'm down. I can't do. I mean, because he it's this weird thing was why wouldn't you do that? Will you? So you don't have any bait. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But I I guess so then you know, what Catholic school did serve me. Well, I went to Catholic school for thirteen years. My family was also a mess. So at least I had half of that equation. And that kept me straight. I guess I mean, I literally said the guy I said, maybe I'm thank you so much for your generous offer. I really appreciate that. You would offer to someone like me because you're above me. And I'm like how the fuck. Oh, sorry. How do I get out of this room without, you know, getting attacked, and it was, but I maybe I'm starry eyed in naive, but I believe hard work, and perseverance are going to get me where I wanna go unquote, Catholic Sister, Mary Ignatius safe. Raise family amass. What was the mass part of my family might listen to this? They're gonna get mad at me again. Well, cake you. Cake. You already mad cake with the family is look, I'm just reporting. What you did you didn't want it to happen. Then you shouldn't have done should have been. Essentially, a court the Naga for here, and you guys are. Look as long as you're not making things up on them. I read back the transcript read, the record, tell me, if you think this is my family doesn't, but I'm like, if you're going to be horrible, and you're going to nor your kids, and you're gonna focus on yourselves, and you're gonna cast everyone to the wind and not pay for college and not pay for lunch and not pay for dinner, not doing that. There's a there's a better than not chance that your kids will either OD by twenty-five or just get some crappy job on a construction site. Racism, Holly or all the above. But there's a small chance make it a microphone. And then it's going to bite you in the ass spun that over now, look he there's a rule that we'll. It said don't pay for anything ever. But there was doubled hero, hugs. And then the double zero within my phone, and it's like, I'll give it a chance. No college. Nobody -cations no meals. No, hugs. No. I contact. This'll be easy. Lane shoes himself. Landed on the sliver with the microphone and the book deals and everything else. And you got burned still spin that wheel today. High percentage spin. So one, and so we both one and here we are in front of microphones. But your family lost is what I'm saying. Well, I mean, we know we're all good now. But yeah, they did move to another country and left me behind. Well, listen, you know, they do that move where they go. I literally almost spat water out of what happened. I want to know what happened to another country. I lived with my grandma, and my mom and my dad and my two sisters moved to another country. So that was back when there was no internet. There was no fifty nine cents a minute phone. Call five dollars a minute call another country on the phone, so there's minimal contact and me and my grandma lived in Hawaii. World. I wanna know. How? I wanna know. I wanna tell everyone this half of the show brought to you by Butch your box. Put your box, calm and truecar truecar dot com. Scotts turf builder and Castrol edge. Yeah. So the the phone thing was an insane thing. Like first off. I'm a little older and Tia. But I I remember like a lot of people going can I use your phone? It's like local where are you calling? You're not calling Westwood are you like if you're calling Westwood? No. We live in eight one eight gene grow up in the area where it was like when we were younger. Yeah. It was like the same situation eventually became, you know, the cell phone unlimited minutes all that stuff. So we experienced both. We had for it. Rate to the rate too. So you need you just want to call someone in the bay area from LA it was insanely expensive. And you'd have to move where it's like, all right? We're minute seven. So let's hang up and call me back calling another country. How long are you going to be on the phone with your kid everyone's poor? And they do this thing where they left me behind with nothing, but my bicycle and five bucks, but leaving the daughter behind with nothing but smoking hot, good luck. This not to thirteen year old fourteen year old daughter in another country far far away. Why would what were they doing? Well, my dad got a job in Samoa far far away. And so the family moved with them. I was in middle school, and they wanted me to get back into the high school and the schools were you know, subpar so I stayed behind schools. Yeah. They were they were worried that I wouldn't get back into the Catholic school back in Hawaii. So it wasn't even your choice. It was there. Like, I'm staying no matter what they like everybody should stay. I've really bad feeling about this. Two years later, my dad and mom's my mom and my sisters came back. My dad stayed behind with his twenty two year old secretary. So I was right. I was right. In the Samoa. Linebacker fullback or Cokie. Dad, and my stepmom today, but it hurt when I was trying to picture the Samoa job. I know this insanely racist. I guess. He worked for Bank of Hawaii name moved and worked for Pacific commercial Bank. I think it was in Samoa. All right developing countries need banks are they gonna pay for stuff to show. He he goes there. And how far away is Samoa for another five hours southwest from Hawaii between Hawaii and Australia. Yeah. And and you're with grandma and I'm with grandma so weird being raised by grandma. It was weird. It was hard because she wasn't very, you know, demonstrative, not very huggy kissy all kinds of stuff, you know, where like with my daughter might go on your love. You get off of me. Yeah. But you know, so, but she did teach me fiscal responsibility. As soon as the Bill from Sears came in. We were on the bus down to alma wanted to pay for it because she didn't believe in debt. So that was a good thing to imprint on me grandpa around. No, she was widowed. Like at forty eight. She was very young. Yeah. Yeah. So what did she too broad in the house in Hawaii? She worked for Pearl Harbor for like fifty sixty years. Yeah. And the national park kinda part. No, no, no. She worked like Pearl Harbor. She worked there as a as a librarian and she had the blueprints for the nuclear submarines and stuff like that. So high clear, clear ins, and she. But she. Yeah. Did she worked hard for a long long time? Then started to blossom in a beautiful flower. And at some point. Started buzzing around. Out there. I mean, they brought you to LA right? I was discovered in a grocery store in Waikiki. And that's how I got my first movie. Gorgeous. You should be in my son's movie. We're looking for the female lead. And I went in. But I read for the casting director who did karate kid. So it was on the up and up, and I made pretend I was a shy local Hawaiian girl that phone love with a Caucasian Casanova, and it was a little bit of Romeo. And Juliet, you know, my brother hates him. He hates my brother kind of thing. So it's my first movie on vacation in Hawaii or were they there they were on vacation visiting their son that was going to do this movie. His son was a director. So did you film in Hawaii and filmed in Hawaii got my screen actor's guild card made some money made sag minimum. And so then I moved to Los Angeles. And I had my sag card had some money. I got an agent because I was a female lead on a movie that was coming out seventeen at seventeen you just. What's her name? I don't think of her name, Janice. Janicki sorry. So you just graduate high school and come out or just graduated from sacred hearts academy school for girls. Where did you end up? Did you have a place lined up? Now, I came here with a boyfriend that had a photographic studio and subsequently took all my money and left me homeless. But that's another story. I gather more Mongolia, please glass, please story eighty situation, I know dangerously close the new show, we talk about AJ the Queen. It's coming soon to net flicks. I got a hard date. Yeah. It's created by rupaul and Michael Patrick king sex and the city. This has great all over it so excited knock on wood. The city everyone. Everyone makes fun of me. I it's weird because I like musicals I like sex city, but like dune buggies? Feminine side. Just that's good. Good. It was a really well written show. And so is this one I think we put way too much stock in at a black movies at the white movies and chick movie like people like good good. Get out bunch of white people. Go see because we'd like an intriguing horror whatever we enjoy that. We're not where we I think we're way too unkind to ourselves. And like nobody's gonna watch. Bob, LA, I like sex, and I'm from the man show like sex city because well written funny show. Like, I enjoyed the characters. I don't I don't get. We're way too much into. I gotta see me or I don't wanna see that thing this for other people. Yeah. It's you know, I. You know, I looked at plenty of Playboy's when I was a kid. I wasn't looking for me. I was like oh, not a shot at as fans next issue. Eyebrows. Year. No, I'm kind of looking for the opposite of me. And I was thinking about it ex-pat. I dunno. If he didn't he work on this. But I was thinking of our friend van life from teams E who's in here the other weekend. I realized the number one black movie of all time. His Scarface across the board on them black men. Scarface number one of all time. I don't know if there was a black cast member in scarfing. Prominently. So there you go. Of all time, and there's not a black actor in it.

I remember when you were selling the sliding doors and Phil was just sleeping in front of everybody. Figures out wherever you're working in. And they takes nap there where we work in. All right here. We go. Since the beautiful Tia career is here are gain today is going to be themed films. Featuring is co stars. I don't know anything about anything with film trivia, I just happen to be in this business. Just want to say that that's my disclaimer no matter what happens in a little series of films that people may have heard of called Wayne's world adapted from beloved sketch on SNL years later. Wayne himself would star in another adept tation of a well known source material from the mind of Dr. Two thousand three's the cat in the hat. Interesting theater Gessel, Dr Seuss. That's right. What else do things what else worked on whatever? Sketches? I know night at the Roxbury was a huge. Argue that McGrew heads cone wasn't a hip Gruber work. Yes, I love Gruber. Conan's was garbage movie. Lose zilch. All right. So can hat. What do we think? I mean, it's a kids movie. Well, done what was the rotten tomatoes on this is that have to write it down. Oh. It's tough. Sometimes they're tough on these beloved things. It should be easy. It's might Myers. It's a story. Everybody knows. But who knows? Yes. Yeah. And the people that are voting on run tomatoes are not the eight year olds that is aimed Jordan. Yes. All right, Brian. Would he say this isn't outrageously bad movie? Is it I I've been tortured by a few scenes here. And there nursing the whole thing it's grotesque like it's like a live action. Like, Dr Seuss world weird said twenty two. Me. I thought you were so nice. What about you? I said eighty seven percents. Okay. Watch a couple times with my daughter. And I know how much she liked I'm going to split the difference. I said forty four I kinda sorta split it. I said sixty six I just thought Dr Seuss how can you go wrong? The cat in the hat is rotten at nine. T? It's been great having. Whole of you. I gave you the disclaimer and everything I won't let you high at twenty two. Wow. Was you thought it was Doug Flutie? And it was Jim McMahon McMahon. Yeah. How about that jersey number? Sorry. Go ahead completely lost on me to your career was in film, which featured an attempted building to building horse jump. True Lies this next film features no animal stunts, but does have Kaelin's dad. And one of Dylan's favorite nude scenes of all time where a beautiful with aliens, dad. Fiqh naked Arnold is on display nineteen Eighty-four. The terminator. The first one the Michael Biehn vehicle the team. So all right the tomatoes back, then well, they they had critics and then they had tomatoes. The reviews aggregated them. All right. Well, we know the critics alike, but to love it. What's not to love? Very violent. Well, we're all going to go all going high here. But we gotta get right on to make up some ground with Brian. You get a five point deduction to get right on Schwarzenegger is not Shwe. He was the body was a bodybuilder who was in schlocky action movies at this point. I think just keep that in mind, Brian is that is that a spoiler alert you trying to eat never know if he's with us just throwing information. Trying to think. Trying to I can't think of a football player with this number. Then you can't do. Okay. All right. Okay. Bryan wigand. I think Reggie White was ninety two. It was. So I'm gonna go if anything wouldn't be low ninety two. I'm using the same number because an I'm scared because it doesn't make any sense to me eighty seven percent again. I really have no way to raise this. So insanely effective. Let you down this somewhere in the middle. I know that everybody loves us. And I don't even know if you call it a cult classic. It's classic. I got a little shy because I don't know how seriously people took it. I said eighty one. Number simeon. Right. He was like ninety six seven. I'm trying to get ninety seven written down. I can't think of anyone else in the NFL Simeon ninety seven Tam. Good dry for that. I pulled out Simeon rice. I'm not gonna Tampa Bay guy. All right, how your students. All right here. We go. The Terminator is certified fresh. With a score that would never appear on a jersey one on. That. There is Justice in this world is in already. Already learned because I was thinking of going one hundred just because I should have just. I should have you guys shocked. Ross right moving. Have you seen every time? It's on. I don't remember it like that my God ever since dated because just four and it's high tech. But it's awesome. Casing. They do vote properly. Sometimes I was just hedging my bets because people are idiots. One of tia's. I films was Harley Davidson and the marble. Adams favorite Phillips this lug want? What how is that movie described like futuristic LA nineteen ninety six or something? The plot is weird. There's a Burbank airport bar that's going to be torn down stating the community stake. Weird takes place at the Burbank airport, which is an insane. I should should've done. John, Wayne, maybe Long Beach. No recollection of this or any other such events the description of it. Okay. The description is forced by the imminent foreclosure of their friends bar to lifelong buddies. We'll decide to rob a bank's armored car not knowing that it's cargo is not money, but a new street drug drops we have the slug line here.

What's Carol your premium? He's one. I know, of course. While you're off I seventy two Garin Kehro Garo, your premiums substitute teacher professional athlete ladies. Impressed that you news number was one. It's like Wallace, Shawn great Howard. Rate is light. In the in the annals of like kickers, not being athletes. He said annal. There when they played in Super Bowl, whatever when they when they played the Redskins, and he got his kick blocked, and he didn't know what to do. Now. Also, it's a great moment. Not only that. But he was like a soccer player from like, Hungary or something at some point. All he did was kick the ball at some points. The phone guy. And he didn't know what to do with. It was a busted play was either blocker bad snipers. A block, and and you guys can watch. But positive for saying what I'm saying is upset this million times. The kickers really have nothing to do all practice. You know, what I mean kicked field goals, but they don't have a lot to do work. A little emergency drought case. Case game kick the ball against. In front of a cinderblock wall. The ball bounce back to them, and this and roll out with it and have some have some, you know, second tier coach run after with sort of like a pad or something waving their arms. Just to kind of just to simulate watch Garo does with the ball when it gets blocked by. And by the way, they're winning the game at this point maiming. They're gonna win in Washington. It's not scored a point. And here's what happens when Garo kicks the ball kicks. It it gets blocked now watch. What CARA does? A little kid playing on can't even make. He doesn't make a tackle. He could've made the Washington didn't score. This is the only score Washington half price as the ball. Benny baths it in the air, then only tackle the guy score. And he can't even push out of bounds. This is the only touchdown by the dolphins in the game. This is the famous undefeated the only undefeated team. Right, right. So yeah, I can play better football than that anybody away from the ball, and you did better push your mouth about down. It's the dumbest thing ever the guys running along the sideline. It doesn't weird fake move. Like I'm coming back in and he stops. And then just keep going push him out of bounds. That's part of you. Hear like interviews today with Larry Czanka, and those guys they still hate Garo for that. They're still hate them. They're still not they could have been the undefeated dolphins who kept out who shut out the Redskins Super Bowl. All right. Sorry. War garo. Wait, we have another one that was five certified fresh Jesus. Wow. Brian. They'll be no winners in. This was going to say there's a pyrrhic victory. No one scored under one hundred. That was exhausting. Gina grad come out of score of one hundred thirty seven. Yeah. Adam corolla? You're one hundred forty six. Which was just you slightly more down the podium. This is not indicative of of what the excellence that. We normally. And I hope you don't walk away with a bad taste about did Tia career make up enough ground at the end to make it onto the podium today for score coming in at one hundred. Sixty seven.

I have interesting New York Times article share with you a personal story about being pulled over by the heat little license plate issue. I know buddy.

You start your Scotts turf builder program today. This is a Scots yard people Scotts turf builder. Check that out I think you'd get it. Home Depot, and everywhere you buy all of that stuff. All right. So I was. I had. So I haven't you know, we did a show from Dallas stadium Texas stadium AT and T state of far outside the stadium. We rolled into that place. And we're there for about. I don't know two hours tops, and we turn around rolled out of their. We had to all meet at LAX at six am which meant I had to leave my house about five fifteen. I sadly, like I said I go to bed at midnight. Whatever it is. Whatever comes the next day. It's just midnight. That's when I go to bed. So sadly on those mornings. It's it's tough. Also man is your brain not work when it's leap deprived. And you know, they was kind of talk about that. You know, it's like three years or whatever. But it is it costs four beers for me. And I was so through my hat through forbears and. Breakfast champion. So I got up at five I had this. I never do the move like people go like I like to give myself an hour to read the newspaper, and it's sort of settle into the day. Now, I go to I'm going to bed at midnight. I set my learn for five hours, I get up. It's a six twenty boarding time. I it's forty five minutes, I get up, and it's dark and freezing outside and my commitment to jumping into the swimming pool is fine on on days. I can ease into it. But on the clock ticking days, which is to say, there's no such thing as getting dressed getting ready getting your stuff together. And then jumping in the pool you have to jump in the pool immediately. And it's like I'm looking at the clock. It's like five seven, and I'm like, I live to run outside jump at the. Cool and then get out and then and then get the hell out of here. And I did and it got the hill out of there in because I was driving like I probably hit the road ended up being a little laid it was like five twenty two little after five twenty. But that's okay. I was going to make it to LAX and self park by six six five six eight whatever it's like, seventy employed. I was making good time and because on the road at five in the morning and because of still half asleep. I just blew right past the one ten on the five I didn't split off normally graphic. You normally at that point. You're normally going seven miles an hour by dodgers day aware, and I just blew talking to Mike on the phone Mike left his house at like four thirty in the morning or something it was already LAX five thirty and I was talking to him. And I was like look at just blew right past. And now I had to get off on like Alvarez street and try to like work my way back to find that. And I was I remember I was thinking. Ooh. Now, pushing it a little bit and the one ten had a lot of traffic on it. And I was sorta like couldn't it a little close now and got on the one ten. And I was trying to make a little time in the whatever fast pass lane is I don't I have one of these boxes. Don't clearly understand how it works somehow LA city decided to use two lanes on the side of a freeway. That's already insanely congested. It's basically, I guess it's five lane. So they decided to take forty percent of the lanes and designate them to people wanted to pay money for some sort of fast pass box or something that you. The the dash your car, and I have one, and I don't know if I pay thirty bucks a month. I don't I don't know if it's still hooked up. I know how it works. It's kind of insane that we've taken a traffic problem and made it worse by just opening up. These two lanes that are sort of open, but I have the box, and I started going, and it's dark outside and Mike's already the airport a little behind and all of a sudden, I just get lit up. I just see that sirens behind me and everything and my first impulse God damn, please just buzz around me or go get the real bad guy or go, do whatever it is. And it's like, oh, no, it's it's understood and I'm in the far left lane. So I have to start making my way over to the right lane. And now like, I think I made miss this flight I missed my ramp on the left. I left at a time that left really no margin for error and I- aired already by getting off at Alvarez street and now being pulled over. So I. Started getting pulled over. And I'm always like my biggest fear is to is to not satisfy them fast enough like the go too long without. So I started put my blinker on started moving over moving over, and I found an open spot, but it was an open spot that was had a ramp on the right side. It wasn't all freeway on the left is pulled over. And then the guy got on the squawk box pull over to the next whatever. And okay, drove again, I'm stopped on the ramp. So if you could picture that slice of pie right of the ramp on one side, and the framing I pulled over on that. And now, I'm stopped on that. And the cars are going up the ramp and the other cars are going buzzing by on the left and now it's like no keep going. I couldn't have a more dangerous activity in terms of getting into an accident. But either way go to the next, you know, so I drove forward I went to found some space. It seemed to be open shoulder pulled over there's plenty of traffic. Stopped. I opened my passenger window because I realized that guy was going to be coming around that side. And now, I'm like it's like six oh nine or something. And I gotta make Dallaire act Fords and eleven minutes. Yeah. In the guy pulled around and he said pulled the over because your license plate. You have a template on their whatever could've we institute. This this simple rule in the land of the worst traffic in the world. Could we institute could hero Garcetti when he's not? Begging us to open arms, and and and and give a fruit basket to those felons who have been released prematurely. Could he institute this which is no polling people over for chicken shit during peak traffic hours now if someone is driving drunk or someone's dragging a bumper or somebody's robbing a Bank by all means, but the legal tint or the or the dealer plate on the back or the no front license plate on the front hag on the on the. Yeah, whenever whatever the laundry list of neither here, nor there tickets that they give you that don't impose any danger on the populace or whatever could we have a little more Torian, which is during peak hours. We don't pull people over for nothing tickets because you're exacerbating, the traffic problem, and it's more dangerous to everyone involved. That's more dangerous to the officers more. Commuter the motorist, whatever. So that's an off our actively. Yeah. But it's four in the afternoon by all means go go do that. But let's during these sort of peak traffic hours, let's work to keep things moving along versus this. Because of course, I have to go from the left lane all the way across soon as the guy hits the rollers lights me up everyone around kind of slows down a little, and then we all have to make our way over. And then when we're over everyone has to slow down to do a little rubber necking as they pass us. So that's a crazy idea. I'd like the institute this guy is pulling me over for having a not for not having a license or drunk driving or Radic driving speeding or nothing. I have a dealer plate so calorie he pulls me over and he comes around the passenger side. And he goes pull the over for having a dealer play. I should. Yeah. And he. Said are you going to work and? No. I said I'm going to LAX to make a flight, and he said, okay. And then he said could have your license, and I happen to have my boarding pass. And my Tinder and everything like sitting on the passenger seat. And he said, I think you said again like going to work or something I said, no, I'm going. I'm trying to catch a seven AM flight, and I handed him the I tin ary any looked at it. And I think it did some form. And then you wanna know if I had my weird travel in the whatever box box on my dash. Box easy pass box, or whatever it is the part where you pay tons and taxes, but you have to pay a little bit more. So you can drive on the freeway. And I said, yeah, I got the box, and he sort of looked at it when okay, you got the box, and then he somewhere between the box the boarding pass and a license that may have had Lakers middle name. He sort of got the right? This guy's not out Capone. He saw up against it. And also. They're always kind of look I think they're always looking for pushback. We'll no I think they're looking for everything. But what they want said all the time when a little meat on the bone fix it ticket. It's not score. That's a that's a lake doubt a infield single for them. What they're looking for not having that box in being in a double or that's double maybe even triple like, I can really get fine for writing in that lane without the box. Once they find you have the box once they find out you have a license tabs or what's everything's in order. Right. It's this winging its swinging bunt that that's what they have. And then it's like. See he let's go fix the ticket nothing. No. Because it's a ticket doesn't really get them any money and to be fair to him. He was like all right. This guy's got everything in order and he's going to LAX and his flights leaving forty one minutes. Selfishly? I feel great about this. I feel relieved because if you had to put those plates on then with that mean for the rest of us and we all have to put our plates on now. Tough now. 'cause it's like you feel like this going to happen a lot. Let me ask you how the crystal brain coordinates on a Friday, how many days ago was it that I predicted this exact scenario happened to you four or five days. It was I mean. Don't. I said your dealer plate your old school the other plate, you how whatever Calvin or whatever it is. That's a beacon beacon the cops. And this car is many more than three months old, please pull me over. Why is it because now now starting January first you have to give you the dealer temporary place on them. And now that it's March first three months have a clip so anything with a dealer plate with Galvin or whoever that is. Hey, man. This car is variable much older than three months, maybe need fake. A felony might be a little. I don't care make up a fake. That was my initial question. What do we do? Well, we're a plate that has my license plate number on it feels or elaborate, you're right because now that it's been three months, you know, anything past March or whatever middle of March or whatever it is would have to have the paper plate or bealty used to be. They never. Car washed, and nobody cares. Yeah. I gotta work out something that doesn't doesn't involve complying, please. Tell us whole. That was my original question power. Again, I didn't say had a fix all. I got I got nothing. But you're right. We gotta figure something out. Maybe I'll take the plate off all the gutter. Ooh. Ten like there was an accident or something a little bat to his own car. Yeah. That'll show them. Yeah. It's sad. But I got to do something other than. Yeah. Yeah, you're right anyway, didn't get a fix it ticket. But now, I don't wanna get pulled up in the morning on the way. And yeah, you're right. So do cannot alter the plate, maybe or something. I don't care. I'm done this cities such pile of shit. I don't even care anymore. Somebody. Somebody tweeted me. Remember, we're talking about the person that sits there when the light changes, or the arrow turns. And they just sit there, and you're everyone. Yeah. That's everyone in your six cars back. Go go go just sitting there for three Mississippi, and you don't think you're gonna make the cut somebody's day. I'll I'll let you. I'll pick out the the countries. And then you tell me which one it comes which one comes out of in either Germany, Mexico or Uganda. They do a thing where when it's a red light before it turns green it the red blinks for like three seconds. Blink blink. And it's changing now because we live in a land where it's red. And then it's green, but people are looking down texting or or just just wandering off the brains, but imagine live the land where that red light blink three times. And got you poised to move for wrote down Uganda. Okay. Let's because it's technologically savvy. Yes. How set you that? Every traffic problem. We have has a solution somewhere in the world. Well, again, if we had a traffic zones are that traffic czar would travel to stewed guard stunning look around, and you know, all the stupid stuff, we do which is like we travel around and we look at. Oh there. Right. So many bicycles in Finland or so we should just do that with the traffic. And then just have that could you imagine if every signal did that, and we coached everyone up to that up call. Yeah. Easy wouldn't need a lot of hardware. Just software little. Update exists Germany in. I don't know since what ninety six or something like Jesus it's been around for a long time here, you're reading traffic light timing lived in Germany in nineteen Ninety-seven their lights flash. A few seconds before turning green. So you could get the clutch engaged and get ready. They take their driving seriously over there, we need this now more than ever because of cell phones, we still call ourselves and California the beacon of all things in the future. When all this stuff is so laughable, it is. It's it's infuriating that we every time Garcetti makes one of his speeches. He always talks about like leading the way in innovation and exploration. We open our arms to communities, and we it's all that's like, we're the we're the tip of the spear. Okay. So be it. We have the worst goddamn traffic in the world. We do just a little. Bit of that and innovation or lead the way or or creation or opportunity the way in the subject and one subject that we have the worst problem in. It's such a weird we're counting homeless pupil. So we're doing fine. After leave that God damn LAX Garcetti enough. Fucking canoe. Just sitting. Around this town. Well, here's a Los Angeles nature. Catches you by surprise Epping and Hobo shit. If that's nature. This is at the end of one of the moving sidewalks drive pitcher Garcetti kayaking the hell would that even he's an or? That's not only anyway. All right. I'll tell you about this article Mara interesting. Let's see let me tell you about Castrol edge. Then we'll do a little news stronger. Under pressure engines can lose up to ten percent of performance due to friction Castrol edge with fluid. Titanium transforms under pressure keep the metal apart and they power robbing friction away three times three times stronger than the leading full synthetic against discussing breakdown. It is the edge. It is the best. It's castro-led. All right. Let's take a quick break. We'll do some news with Gina grad. Right after this. Hey kitties. Did hearing the sound of my nasal drone.

38 Million Dollars
"They take one last ride around the world, the EMMY award winning Anthony, bourdain parts, unknown the final episodes chairs, Sundays at nine on CNN. Hey, everyone. I'm David chalian the CNN political director, and this is the daily DC. Thanks so much for listening today in the podcast, thirty eight million dollars. That is the third quarter. Fundraising haul for Beto Rourke, the democratic candidate for the US Senate from Texas. Now, as you know, and we've talked about on this podcast this week, we have seen several polls that suggest an aerobic victory over Ted Cruz is quite the long shot, but every other metric, other than polling points to an aerobic phenomenon taking place in Texas in deep red, Texas. There is this blue phenomenon happening through the vehicle of Beto or Rourke, and anybody who was around in the Barack Obama. Oh seven. Oh, eight campaign or the Donald Trump fifteen sixteen campaign Dareez apart from the poll something that happens on the. Round win. Crowd sizes are so much bigger than anybody normally draws to political events when your fundraising is going through the roof, not because you've landed some Wales of big fundraisers, but because you have hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of small dollar donors, there is little doubt that a Rourke has tapped into something, but the eye-popping number of his third quarter, fundraising haul, thirty eight million one hundred thousand dollars that is more than triple more than triple what Ted Cruz. No slack of a fundraiser he raised in the third quarter. He more than tripled his Republican opponent in fundraising. Now, dear diminishing returns here, perhaps of just how effectively you can spend all that money if you're better aerobic. If there simply aren't enough Democrats in the state of Texas willing to show up on election day and vote, but just to give you some context. That my colleague, David Wright pulled together Jeb Bush. You'll recall yes, his presidential campaign petered out, but you'll recall he was the establishment front runner from the gecko. And part of the reason he was is because he had presented himself as an early fundraising juggernaut in many ways, Jeb Bush raised thirty five point five million dollars for his entire twenty sixteen presidential campaign. Now we know that that presidential campaign ended prematurely early after the South Carolina primary, but thirty five point five million dollars for the entirety of his campaign. This is better work three, eight point one for just the third quarter of this year. By the way, that third quarter is coming after record numbers that he was posting in the first and second quarters this year, here's the real stat. This thirty eight million dollar haul bet doa work has now broken a record in the country. He has raised more money in one quarter as a candidate from the US. Senate than any other US Senate candidate in American history. This is why you hear a lot of chatter about Beto roar possibly hopping on a plane going Isla New Hampshire and starting to explore a potential twenty twenty presidential rut. Now that may be tricky for him to do if he's just elected to the United States Senate in November and actually defeats Ted Cruz. In fact, I believe that Iraq has already ruled it out and said that he would serve his full term. However, if he comes up short in Texas in his Senate race, this fall, this kind of fundraising prowess, the fact that it is done with his no pack pledge and the fact that it is done with hundreds of thousands of small dollar donations. Eight hundred and two thousand eight hundred thirty six individual contributions. Now, obviously he gets his fair share of big. Liberal money. Also, he's a caused celeb- lab, lots of Hollywood money. There's no doubt about that, but you don't do this in less your powering it by individual small dollar contributions, which is what he's doing. And this very well may be the model going forward for Democrats the different model than we see on the Republican fundraising side right now. But this very well may be the model for democratic presidential contenders, and I think it is going to be important to watch for who can put together the kind of small donor network that brings in huge cash because of cult of personality. Or, you know, the candidacy does become a cause celeb- that can determine a lot about momentum inside the democratic nomination race. Now we'll this thirty eight million in this quarter on top of everything else. He raised get better Rourke, a United States, Senate seat, have him defeat Ted Cruz back to the polls. I mentioned at the top Quinnipiac poll, has them nine points behind. Find that's where Quinnipiac had him in September. So that's been pretty consistent. We saw that same margin, nine points behind in the New York Times CNN poll of the Texas Senate race. No doubt there will be more polls that come out, but he is consistently behind and by significant enough margin that the seat appears to be a real long shot. But you just and I know I said this yesterday on the podcast before I knew these fundraising numbers, but you just can't ignore the ground. Swell on the ground, the small dollar donors, this huge amount of money. It is hard for me to think it adds up to a democrat winning a Texas seat to the United States Senate, but it is not something that I think you can just rule out of hand as not possible if there's a big enough wave and some of those house seats in Texas have a lot of energy behind them. You could maybe see. The democratic miracle in Texas. I will say one other thing here besides the demography of the state and the partisanship of the state governor, Greg Abbott, the Republican incumbent governor is hugely popular and is running will ahead of his democratic opponent, and it's going to be a bit of a route most likely in the Texas gubernatorial race. And so having that at the top of the ticket is a big help. I have little doubt to Ted Cruz and his effort to retain his seat if there were a weaker top of the ticket race going on for Republicans, I think we might be in a different equation here. Clearly there is some resistance to cruise, but with all of that energy for Abbott and the entire party structure and machine motivated and Abbott running. So well ahead right now that is a real shot in the arm for the cruise effort. And that may be one of the things that keeps Arocca bay in addition to just simply. No matter how many times Democrats tried this yet. There may not be enough, democratic votes that simply exist and get motivated to the polls in the state of Texas. It's sort of like Charlie in the football in Charlie Brown, because Democrats have been trying to do this in Texas for quite some time. It's been more than two decades since a statewide democrat has been elected in Texas. And so this is like I said, an eye popping number. It is well worth considering this as you assess the race, even with the daunting poll numbers for Rourke, and I'll use this moment also to plug if you wanna see what's behind this tune in next Thursday. The eighteenth of October to CNN at seven pm. Eastern Danna Basch is sitting down with better work for CNN townhall event in mcallen, Texas, and I think you will see some of what is behind the sort of Aurore phenomenon that has been.

A Life of Death - the Holy Warrior
"Before. I start tonight's unusual story. I like to read you an excerpt from a letter written by Pope pious the six cardinal pelvis Gino in seventeen seventy eight translated from the Latin. It is with great consternation that I have considered your unorthodox proposal. I have prayed and I have beseeched the Lord for Guidance Scholars Argue that dreams or merely dreams teams but as men of faith you and I know better this is the hazy world between the living and the dead where we can see see and feel and know things that the waking mind cannot grasp it was here that I saw the face of true horror. This was no common dream cardinal. I was shown evil lay bare in its infernal old glory a black rock at the edge of hells vast ocean. Now I know it to be true through what you have been say and I know that you seek to fight God's fight on behalf of all all of us are nothing but what God wants of us if we need to be his holy soldiers to fight this monstrous evil than we shall become just that I approve your request and we shall secure all necessary funds or this critical venture jour- go with God cardinal be est thou an order in stay the hand of chaos from this world and and the next and of letter normally this show focuses on the villains. The monsters are raising. d'etre is the bad guys. The story is different. This is about one of the good guys and it's a slow burner. No doubt deep dive into the mythology and psychology of the stories that I tell it's about a good man decently scholar a soldier a priest who was always above all else Amana man of faith and compassion when Francis Rourke came face to face with true supernatural evil a force beyond our world. His faith was tested and instead of using it as a shield as so many do and he decided to use it as a weapon. This is a life of death holy war four drinking whiskey in the kitchen telling scary stories raise around the fire music monsters and mayhem Keller's cannibalism colts fearful fiction and furious fact toll tails and terrible terrible truths. This is a scary home companion. Francis roar began his life at a Catholic orphanage in New York City. He was told that he'd been born in Nineteen fifty but he was also told that that was an educated guess he was a kid without a birthday scrappy. Irish Irish boy thin and reedy with tireless energy in boundless imagination. You wanted to read everything to do everything and he was constantly in motion while still taking high school classes he started working for a local plumber age fifteen he was so rail L. Finn and dexterous that he could wiggled down into the tightest spots and slipped through drains into the sewers. Even while working full-time Francis was still on track for the seminary he was as faithful lad as he was smart devout in his studies and his devotions oceans and so it was quite a surprise to all who knew him then he signed up with the army the day after he turned seventeen. Although he said he was eighteen he might have been sixteen. It mattered little Vietnam was hungry it needed bodies even being so little and thin. Francis Ace bootcamp because he was hungry to with his background in the tunnels they stuck Francis with an oddball team of tunnel rats that tunnel rats went went underground to get the drop on Charlie and within days Francis saw himself some real shit within in six months he and the rest of the team had been reported m. I A possibly captured. They were missing for two weeks. When they returned. They were five men short. None of the survivors ever spoke of what happened in any detail they were quickly quietly awarded Purple Hearts and honorably discharged back to civilian life where Francis went right back to his original all tracks and started at the seminary. It was nineteen seventy four the father. Francis Rourke received his first post host with the Roman Catholic Church as the prison chaplain for Slate County Correctional Facility in Pennsylvania as the chaplain Aplin Rourke was but a humble servant of God. He didn't approach this like a job. He certainly certainly didn't approach it like the shit job that was he didn't even approach it like it was something that he wanted to put behind him to move on to bigger and better things every every single day roar treated the inmates of slate county as if they were his personal flock he had been sent here the way he sought to help help guide these troubled damaged broken men towards redemption possibly even their ultimate reward. If saving living souls was the charge of priest than this place was the front lines these men all of these men had already been wooed by the devil and it was on him to bring them back then that said there was one prisoner that immediately captivated evaded attention a man named IRA done which sadist mass murderer leader of a blood colt who had been occupying the same cell on death row for almost fifteen years now rourke was not a naive man he had no illusion that he could save the soul someone is corrupt and fouls IRA done which but he had cry and if he couldn't succeed he could at least learn more about the mindset of the sadist in the murderer and the criminal which might help him save more souls in the future. This wasn't a sprint it was a marathon and so he approached an aggressive and belligerent IRA done which time after time day after day trying to wear him down trying to peek inside his head done which hand written a book called the ghastly ones which rourke asked the warden to confiscate so that he read it and the book turned out to be a revelation it was for lack of a better term the Bible for this religion that done which followed it was a summation of the whole methodology the allergy an introduction to the demons parables and stories of heinous acts and even more heinous motives rourke realized that done which was sort of a priest himself rourke fought save souls done which fought the damn them these two men of faith. These mirror images stared at one another through the bars of sell six time and again month after month. rourke realized he was starting to become obsessed he was studying the book all all night every night. Constantly thinking about what questions he would pose done which knacks there was so much he wanted to know he also knew that he wasn't isn't making any headway whenever done which deemed to talk to him it was always a ploy or threatre an insult he was doing nothing but toying with father rourke until the day when something stirred change in Ira- done which his demeanor key more relaxed ever since he had started to buddy up with one of the prison guards man named Dempsey rourke saw this change in him. We still wasn't fully prepared for what done which said to him this marked the first time that I- Redone Don which had ever been honest and direct with Francis Rourke and he said one day Francis we will be standing ending right here just like this at there won't be any bars between us and it will be then then and only then that you know my true power. You will kneel before me. I will violate you and I will kill you and I will walk from this prison a free man. I swear it it was at this point. The Francis roar realized he might be in somewhat over his head. He called his bishop. The diocese for some advice and explained his situation wasn't until hill when he mentioned the book that his Bishop became very quiet. He told Father Rourke that he was going to make some calls and then he got off the phone as quickly as he could. After fifteen years it came to pass that IRA done which was finally going to be execute in the weeks leading up to this rourke detected no strong change in the prisoner done which still seem relaxed. I almost happy as if he wasn't worried about dying at all the rourke found himself himself praying for forgiveness most nights because much to his shame he found himself looking forward to the execution he didn't relish the thought of being there but he had to admit he would be relieved to never have to look done which in the is is ever again. The night of the execution arrived roar put on his vestments and went to bear bear witness. You tried to instead he found his path blocked by a short doughy man standing on the doorstep flanked by two enormous Haitian priests who were carrying sidearms. The man said his name was Cardinal Hume. He had a small diocese on Grand Bahama island. He was in charge of a very select very old order of the faithful and he had come a very long way to sit and talk with Francis Rourke two hours later cardinal hume left with IRA done which his book in in his possession Rourke was left behind scales removed from his eyes in the night of IRA done which his execution ended up being the night that he escaped from prison just as he said he would. I've told that story once or twice I won't bore the details but another man was executed in his place as he scooted out the door and off the grid flanked linked by an armed contingent of the gun. Toting cultists called the gunmen then you might also remember the Father Rourke was supposed to be there there and bear witness and he never showed up well now you know he never showed up because he was being detained by Cardinal Hume and his armed armed soldier priests who were named brother Rene and brother Enoch by the way hume bad father wrote to sit with him and talk and the Dutiful Priest explained that he had urgent duties of the cloth and would return when he could and then it was made perfectly clear through their body language that brothers Rene Andy Knock were not going to let him go anywhere anywhere and so work took a seat across from the cardinal and he listened hume loom started to explain that he was the leader of a secret order of the church that dated back to seventeen seventy eight when church leaders agreed there was a growing demonic presence in the world one that seemed to attack people in their dreams in eat away at Thir Sanity. The order was founded to fight this evil this particular evil it was crusade a crusade against an enemy called the ghastly ones demons who lived on an island at the edge of hells calls black ocean. You masked for the book done which is book enr gave it to him. This was to be one of many that the order had collected over the years. All of them were inked and written by different hands in different languages in different places at different times and yet each book was uncannily the same it was as if the book existed outside of physical space like an infectious idea every hand wrote the same book from memory shared memory from something something ancient and unholy not assume for one second second. Francis roar took any of this at face value he was the type of man who strengthened his beliefs by questioning them constantly but the thing thing is he'd spent a lot of time sesing over that book and that was because something about it felt real real arcane infernal altogether bigger than just one crazy murderer sitting on death row and for that reason you kept listening hume told him that the ghastly ones were very real they existed somewhere wear beneath our world in the skin that separated help from Earth and they haunted dreams and plagued the mad and the damned because those were the only places that are two worlds got close enough to touch close enough where they could reach through your also explained that the operated in our world through their vessels whom he called emissaries the emissaries. We're only here to pave the way for their masters because the ghastly ones wanted to come here they wanted to take this place the natural world and to bring suffering to all who live it was the charge of the order to stop stop them by any means necessary which roundabout led to his offer of the special duty for Francis Francis Rourke all that time done which had spent sell six he'd been working at opening a door adored over there adore to let them in this was not so easy task the man had fifteen years to harness and focus all the pain and suffering and death and violence of this prison and he still had not managed to open the door but he had bill won the door. was there now that the cell was empty. The door wasn't just GONNA go way. It would remain and it would seek out now what it needed. There are very few places where our world and there's touch some in places. The barrier between our worlds was thinner trauma in terror and the Ross most horrifying base emotions of fear and pain when focused when used they weakened these barriers and that is what was happening within within sell six it was going to keep happening even without done which being there since the door can't be closed closed. The order needed a sentry. They needed someone to stay close and to watch over it. Fight it as best you can of course but study it watch it and report to me directly to me. Please father roar guy. Ask you help my order against this evil. At this point hume checked his watch then he nodded at the priests who both relaxed took their hands is off their guns for the first time hume did not WANNA deceive rourke any further and he had a hard truth to tell him before you accept or decline my offer. I need to tell you that I read done which was not executed. He escaped someone very powerful wanted done which alive and free and had sent an armed group of cultists and purveyors ears of human hunts called gunmen to break him out of death row and to fake his execution. This was a hard truth for the cardinal to admit because the order had foreknowledge of this death they knew what was happening and when but in order to stop it they would not only you have to expose themselves but also make dangerous new enemies he wouldn't elaborate on who those enemies might be so instead of stopping the done which escape plan hume decided to call rourke into the safe embrace of the order to keep him from harm. Dr Because I- Redone which most certainly would have kept the promise he made to Francis Workaday roar. I pointed out correctly that allowing human life to be taken when they could have at least tried to stop it expressly he went against their vows appoint that hume conceited but then explained that the order had different front vows they were fighting a crusade battling evil and that meant at times making very unpleasant choices choices. You said that he understood. This was not the path work follow. He knew that not everyone was cut out for the order order but he asked him nonetheless to give it time talk in prayer and decide what to do. If he requested custody transfer you would approve it and move one of his own people into the role of chaplain at Slate County into the role century oversell six six with no questions asked that night after hume left Rourke lost himself in prayer. He searched his heart. He fought with his conscience. He weighed his vows. His life had never been an easy easy one but never before had he faced such a crisis of faith a crisis that stopped suddenly when he went to visit sell six although it was empty now rourke found and he got that same sick feeling that he always got when he visited. I- Redone witch only now you realized that it wasn't just just the man it was the place it was this place there was power here dark malevolent. He could feel it and he knew that hume was right. This was an evil that needed to be fought. Even at the peril of his immortal soul in the episode titled The horror and Sell Six. I interviewed former Moore television producer del Dugan about an incident he witnessed at Slate County Correctional Facility. I also track down his colleague. A woman named Tana's cray why she left a particularly deep impression on me not just because she was a journalist obsessed with the occult but because because of what she said to me hello. Are you Kansas Cray. My name is Maryanne Simpson. I I wanted to meet you listen. I know you don't like to talk but I thought you might want to hear I have not spoken with Tana's or Dell since then but recently Mr Dugan and reached out to me with a very unusual update about his friend and former coworker hello Ms Simpson. This is Dell Dugan. I spoke to you about a year ago for show about Slate County prison and Tana's cray. I hope your story turned out. I have to admit I never ever listened to it and probably never will but that isn't personal you understand. It's just not something I can revisit especially especially now. I'm in a really good place which is partly why I waited so long to contact. You look a couple of weeks ago. Something happened. I tried to let it go but it's been nagging at me so I thought I would call you honestly. I don't know anyone else who would care tennis showed showed up at my house one night. It was late. She looked a little rough around the edges but I didn't think she was drunk or on anything thing. I didn't even know she was out. I remember you saying you were going to the psych ward to talk to her and that was the last I heard but there she was at my front door past midnight talking grade A. Craziness crazy enough that I did not invite fight her in as much as I wanted to help her. I just didn't feel comfortable with her. In my house she was off. She kept saying she knew how to get there now and that she needed a boat. She must have asked me five times. If I have a boat I don't by the way the best I was able to figure she had met a man. This man came to her in the psych ward and told her where to go. She said that he showed her or a jar filled with black and green and it talked inside her head. Then there was something about a book man Dan she might not be able to ride with him but she could follow him. He was the only way to get to the island but now she could find him so she she could find it. I'm not saying any of this means anything but the next day I looked up the number for where she'd been cared for and they said she she had disappeared. I just thought you'd like to know in case. She was coming to see you next. Please call me if you have any questions ticker as surprised as I was to hear about tennis. I was even more surprised to hear this description of a jar. Dr Filled with a black and green. WHO's suddenly the story feels. A lot bigger more connected. Perhaps delusional. Ramblings aren't always delusional. What if the Insane Jesse things. The rest of US can't some two years later Francis rourke would still prison chaplain instill the guardian of sell six during during that time things had been relatively quiet around the prison as far as demonic possessed prisons go anyway at rorke's request west the warden kept sell six empty whenever possible and when that wasn't possible when it was occupied rourke always made several trips date death row not once did he falter in his new duty and in his off time he channeled his voracious reading into the mythology the the island and the ghastly and also soft sciences in particular psychological tests in dream interpretation tation which had started to reveal possible patterns that might tie into the ghastly one if they existed did in the dream state then he needed to learn about dreams rourke began to correspond with particular researcher named are Gento who is trying to Coley drain study data from around the world to look for recurring patterns motifs and figures. I it was fascinating stuff around that time the cops caught barbed wire Dr Henry Henry Morgan Dempsey the former prison guard who had become an Acolyte to IRA done witch when when he was arrested Dempsey possessed a new handwritten copy of the book the ghastly ones that had also been written by IRA done which himself himself during his time there rourke treated Henry like a pet project he kept copious notes and as it came to pass he started to do that with every single prisoner that stayed in sell six after that day some of them like like Henry and the skinner Sarah whitlow seemed very at ease in the cell. They thrived there. Most of the others others killed themselves or at least attempted to do so usually before a few days had passed. Henry regularly regularly complained about headaches. He told rourke whenever he tried to sleep he could feel something rolling round found inside his head rourke saddest part about Henry was how he never got scared. Henry was so blindly confident that his mentor IRA done which was going to come for him rescue him save him. It never occurred to him that he would actually die but he did and remortgage. Dempsey was executed in nineteen seventy eight and in the space of just a few days he went from being a semi notable serial killer to a weird medical footnote. I'm referring of course to the infamous autopsy of barbed wire Henry which I've discussed before more than once we've all read about it but rourke had the drop on history because Dr Cochran after infamous autopsy Cold Rock into his office to show him what he had pulled from Henry's brain black and green oozing tumor that was sluggishly crawling around the inside of specimen. Dr Rourke didn't know what it was but then he touched the glass of the jar and then he he knew what it was even through the glass he could feel it. The darkness the evil that radiated from this slug. I tried to take with them. Dr Cochran would not let go the prison doctor quit soon after and went into hiding when rourke reported. This hume was not at all surprised at the news. He said that that the order had seen these things before and to them. It was just proof that the evil they fought was truly inhuman. It was a little piece of the devil in the flesh and corrupted people from the inside. Rourke manned his post on the edge of hell or another five years and in that time as incremental toll as it was he could feel the power of sell six growing. It was a magnet hauling in all all the hate and the fear and the pain and the misery of the prison drinking the blood and sucking the bones and was nothing could ever be shut off Rorick for the first time came to the cardinal with a plan Dan of his own plan of action that would require several brothers and sisters of true faith we had experience with exorcisms and deem team analogy he wanted to attack sell six with the full force of the Lord behind him and if that didn't work we're going to throw everything in the kitchen. Sink at sell six that didn't work in the prison would need to be closed emptied and sealed up forever. They couldn't close this door then they needed to keep it from. Feeding Rourke was backed up by an old school Sicilian priest who is considered the world's foremost expert on exorcism Zimrights. There was an old none and three sisters that hume had sent from the order with his personal recommendation and the night that they went to death row cleanse. It was a turning point for Francis that that was the night you realized that the adversary the order fought was not in a foreign distant place. Hell wasn't theoretical Michael. Hell was very real and the end of days was only ever a breath away always just one iota out of sync with our world when Rourke and his Dream Team of Catholic ghost breakers the send it on sell six evil force inside of it back and hard in brief glimpses visions rourke saw things that they also thing place in Ireland where mutilation with sacrament where human flesh flesh could be molded like clay into bizarre new shapes a place where organs grew on trees and the Black Sea crawled with the castaway scraps and remains still losing with endless life. This was a place beyond hell was an utter void a moral vacuum that threatened to suck the sanity right out of him and the old priest he was the closest to that door he saw the most intense he the standing against the wall staring through the door looking into the other side when it was over when rourke found his way hey to his feet and he checked on everyone he found the old Sicilian priest in the corner holding his face in his bloody hands hands and whimpering. I see what it really is. Please lord take it away. I can't I can't see it. Please take it whatever it was that he saw over there broke the old priests mind so thoroughly that he had claude out his own is I'm trying to get the images from his head and had he not been restrained by the sisters would have kept digging right in his is brain rorick walked out of Lake County Correctional Facility and he never went back so the entire structure was empty and shuttered within three months brother Rene Brother Inuk Doc. They were waiting for Father Rourke. They took him to the airstrip. They flew him to Grand Bahama island drove him to the diocese this of Cardinal Hume generations before the order had converted an old military fortress on Bahama into a church which was now also used as an orphanage a school a hospital and the headquarters for the order. They had a nice room made up for work with new vestments waiting for him. After a quiet austere dinner sitting in a dining hall with sixty or seventy local families hume took rourke aside. He said that it was time for Roy Moore to the side side once and for all if he was going to join the order they did not need his help. They did not need him to be an ally. They needed him to enter the fray. Hume led him downstairs through the basement and sub basement into the tunnels carved into the bedrock itself and finally to a sealed vault door guarded by two armed nuns as he opened the vault door. Hume explained that this was a museum of sorts a trophy room. This was where the order kept all the symbols olds of triumph. They held over the adversary. There were many books some of which Roy recognized there were weapons opens some of which look to be made from bone and there were closed many of which looked to be made from skin the there were more than a dozen coffin sized glass boxes each one with a hermetically sealed human being inside of it based on the smudges inside the glass they had all been sealed up alive and allowed to die slowly and then there were the jars so many jars thick lead lined glass with tops permanently sealed and affixed with wax marked with the civil of the order and date well well over two hundred of these jars going back a hundred and fifty years and in every jar one of those that black and green tumors each one writhing moving crawling seeking freedom pushing against the Glass Hume said this is our enemy. We cannot falter and we cannot show weakness. We must do what needs to be done. If this means condemning our own souls to a hell for all eternity to spare the innocent than that is what we must do for our charge is saving the soul of the world itself from this rourke knelt before the cardinal surrounded by these demonic tumors and took the ancient vow of the order. He pledged edged everything he had and everything he was to becoming. God's avenging left hand a Crusader Holy Warrior your love for me.

A piece by trevor read in the Greeley Tribune and I have to warn you details of this story may be rather disturbing. So please be forewarned Wound District County Michael Rourke announced yesterday afternoon that police arrested at St Panky sixty-nine on suspicion of murder and kidnapping and the one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four death of a twelve year old Chanel Matthews of Greeley Rourke announced the arrest and indictment of panky outside. County, courthouse Panky was arrested money Monday at his home in Meridian. Idaho without incident he is being held at the ADA. County jail in Idaho without bond where he will await extradition to weld county to face charges for first degree murder after deliberation first degree, felony murder, and second degree kidnapping, as well as sentenced enhancers for using open in the commission of a violent crime. Panky is accused of shooting John Matthew in the head during the course of kidnapping Panky was thirty three. At the time Greeley Police Chief Mark Jones said at the news conference for over three decades. The disappearance of Mathews has left our community with many unanswered questions and avoid that has not been filled with the arrest of St Panky and the murderer John L. Matthews. Some of these questions are starting to be answered. I trust this new development cheap Jones went on to say helps the Matthews, family their friends and our community to receive some closure and healing from this horrific trauma. Jen Morganson Janelle sister was present for the indictment panky on Friday rourke said Tuesday he said Matthews family had a reaction of quote genuine relief and excitement. Now, the indictment alleges that panky between eight thirty to nine thirty, pm? December twenty s nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four took genetics from her home at three twenty third avenue she was dropped off by family friend Russ. Ross, after a school choir concert that night in Greeley before her father reported her missing. Her remains were found July twenty third twenty nineteen about one quarter of a mile northwest of weld county roads thirty four, point, five, thirty, four and a half and forty nine. Genera disappearance in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, well, it shook the community. Mike Peters covered law enforcement and courts for the Greeley Tribune from one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, one to two thousand and eleven. Peters wrote numerous heartbreaking stories on the search for genetic over the years he joined some of the searches and interviewed the family. He. Said they only lived a few blocks from our house. So I passed their house every day going to work. It impacted the whole town. This was a time when you let your kids go out and play even after dark in the ARD. We. Just kind of cut that off because. Well. It wasn't a safe environment. Though panties arrests might not change the impact that anals disappearance out on the community peters went on to say it felt really good to finally see an arrest made in the case. Greely Mayor John Gates. Speaking to the Greeley trip by the way really mayor John Gates will join us this morning at eight thirty five. But Mayor Gates said we all hoped and indeed we did this day would come. I guess proof that even cases that are cold that have been unsolved for thirty, four, thirty, five years can be solved with a lot of diligence. Mayor Gates who also serves as chief of safety and security at Greeley Evans School district six as you're well aware spent twenty five. Working. At the Greeley Police Department. He said not only from his experience with the department, but since his retirement. The Greeley PD has never put this case on the shelf. Gates said this case has been actively worked for thirty five years. Probably paid huge dividends I'm happy for the family, the police officers and the community because this is about a thirty six year old case. And when I first heard the news I got goosebumps. I'm happy for everyone involved. It looks like a substantial step towards clearing it all up. Now, the indictment doesn't explain why painting might have targeted Donell but it does detail number of connections between him and the Matthews family and numerous inconsistent and suspicious statements. Panky has made over the years. That includes detail of the crime scene, not previously made available to the public. panky would watch school children walk home from Franklin Middle School. We're matthews went to school according to the indictment. Panky also attended the Sunny View Church of the Nazarene until about June nineteen, seventy eight. and. The Matthews family joined that same church that summer. Now in an interview back in March of Nineteen ninety-five. panky stated. that. Two Police Officers Live in the same block as journal. Which started and? Familiarity, with her neighborhood, the indictment goes on to say panky also discussed the critical piece of evidence from the Matthew's House law enforcement actually withheld from the public. Specifically Rake used to obliterate show shoe impressions in the snow. Prosecutors noted in the indictment that panky intentionally inserted himself in the investigation many times over the years claiming to have knowledge of the crime. Those, claims became inconsistent and incriminating over time. He filed pleadings in many cases that contain direct and veiled statements about Chanel. For example, in one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine, pleading feel filed with the Idaho. Supreme Court he argued that if the court ruled in a certain fashion and these are his words quote, it is reasonable for the appellant to believe he would get the death penalty penalty for revealing the location of Janelle Matthews Body close quote. He also wrote without a deal. This case will never be solved according to the indictment panky repeatedly demanded immunity in exchange for information he to possess about two now's murder in an April two, thousand, three court pleading. He asserted. The Family should be informed that John died before crossing tenth street. And not to give the family, hope. panky stated in an August twenty thirteen letter. About a week after the fact, I realized a blanket or comforter quilt also disappeared from the Matthew's house. Some experiences he said are hard to forget. But I must realize justice isn't always served and move on. Now that same year twenty thirteen. He sent an alibi document to law enforcement detailing plans for a family trip to California beginning the morning after General's disappearance. The document contained false statements and support fluids, deep details. Angela Hicks Than Handke's? Wife. She described that trip is quote unexpected. Started two days after Gina's disappearance. She also said that Pinky dumped their family dogs prior to the trip. As dogs were never seen again. Panky. was uncharacteristically listening to radio searching for news accounts of John House disappearance on the return home according to kicks and when they did arrive home on December twenty six. He immediately began digging in their yard. About two days later, car on their property. Mysteriously burst into flames. Panky dispose of the car at a local salvage yard according to fix. In early, one, thousand, nine, hundred, five, panky began muttering false prophet during Church, service when the minister announced generic would be found safe and returned home. The night, the indictment states he grew increasingly agitated and had to be moved by parishioners. In. Two. Thousand Eight. Hicks heard Panky say at his murdered son's funeral. I hope God didn't allow this to happen. Because of Gina Matthews this again. According to the indictment. The indictment also states panky made repeated Internet searches about Chanel tried to delete all evidence of those searches after Greeley Greeley police detectives contacted him in two thousand nineteen. Da Michael Rorick, said yesterday that Pinky became a person of interest in the case in mid two, thousand eighteen panties inconsistent and suspicious statements about the case over the years garnered heightened law enforcement interest. There's no definitive DNA link between Panky and Matthews. This is what works said yesterday in response to a question at the news conference. Asked. If law enforcement believes Panky did anything else over the air. Over the years rourke said, he could not. The court date has not yet been set. Justice. One. Step To justice. For.

Dot com morning Gail live and local from the auto pillars at a specialist studios. All right. So it was a grueling day yesterday for. Well, both Republicans and Democrats alike as Democrats well. A through everything. But the kitchen sink at Amy Coney Barrett who remained the epitome of who'll calm and collected throughout this Oh it was an eleven plus hour marathon don't know if you watched any or not. You had many Democrats well among them. Spartacus. And Kamala Harris using or trying to use. Coney Barrett as nothing more. Than a prop at a campaign rally, I'm sitting there yesterday and did you watch it nine, seven, hundred, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, eight, seven, seven, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, drop me a text on thirteen ten kfi text line at three, one, nine, nine, six. I'm watching this yesterday. And for the life of me I, don't know how she stayed. Just so smooth she was so calm was unbelievable particularly when Kamala Harris uses this to grandstand uses the opportunity I mean I thought the whole question of this part of the confirmation hearing was a to ask. Amy Coney. Barrett questions. CARMELA instead uses it as well time to Filibuster and I'm listening to Comma Harris going. Where's the question? Asked me a question and I'll tell you what mean Coney Barrett. She just remained calm. So they came. They questioned and guess what the got up -solutely nothing says a Michael Goodwin in the New York Post it's almost enough to make you feel sorry for Democrats well. Almost this as Democrats failed in their efforts to cavanaugh. Justice. To Be Amy Coney Barrett Own Spartacus actually played his hand as well. Referring to Mr Booker's Senator Booker. Yes. By saying something words to the effect when was questioning I don't know it was some outline outlandish. Line of questioning but he he was questioning her. Basically, tipping tipping his hand when he referred. To her colleagues. Alito and Thomas. You see Democrats no, this is a done deal. Because the Republicans in the Senate despite all of their outcry, this is a constitutional crisis and that. Well, it's the entire process is somehow illegitimate. Well they would be doing the exact same thing and they know it. Fallen well. The history of vicious misbehavior and the political calendar limiting their ability to smear Amy County Barrett. Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee were reduced just being annoying nags finger-wagging scolds they were never going to vote for any Supreme Court nominee president trump's to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg but. They didn't even have the option of giving Barrett the Cavanaugh two point Oh treatment. Z. Another character assassination attempt of kind of visited on. Cavanaugh. Two years ago now, justice. Would have been very risky business for them particularly. So close to the election. So it was politics that not a decency that stayed their hands now make no mistake though if they could of the downs would have trashed Barrett as to religious and too conservative and done everything they could have short of setting the building on fire stopper for joining the High Court before the election as it was well, they spent their time during. The first day of question questioning largely trying to report up and get her to make statements that they could use his campaign fodder against trump. Their fallback position was to lay the groundwork for getting Barrett to recuse herself in important upcoming cases. Especially, the challenge to Obamacare the score, the court has actually scheduled to hear beginning just days after the election I wonder if we'll have the results but scheduled to begin on. November tenth. They also fumed and they sputtered. About the possibility that well, the court might be called on to make a key ballot rulings after the election and hope she wouldn't participate. No such luck they all struck out. You see their basic problem here is that bear it? Came across. As an appealing superwoman, she was flanked by her husband. Six of their seven children and her six siblings she she was absolutely flawless in answering those questions. The ones at least she could. And in very very politely sidestepping all of the landmines that were put out in front of her. I don't know if you saw this tonight but I found this. Absolutely. Incredible. She was referencing case law. I mean opinion after opinion. Without a single note in front of her. Or she had a note pad in front of her, but there was nothing written on it. Not One single word. She had no reference books nothing whatsoever. It was a laser like accounting. Of things she wrote and said as a professor at Notre, Dame law school, and for the last three years as a judge on the Federal Court of Appeals. Now one point you had Senator Dianne, Feinstein who infamously said Barrett three years ago that the dogma lives loudly in you. Will Feinstein got rather frustrated with getting nowhere and switch topic spicing. Let me try something else. Senator Booker actually say to. Your a much better lawyer that I and I'm like, yeah, think. Now, while Barrett was generally engaging unpleasant. She was almost robotic in responding to even clever attempts to get her to Kent House she might rule on specific cases or issues. Repeating a famous line that Ruth Bader Ginsburg used it her confirmation in Nineteen ninety-three Barrett repeated no hints no previews. No. Forecasts. Lack of theatrical accusations didn't make for great TV admittedly but the hearing was educational is Superior Court confirmation hearings can be repeated references to the constitution. Of legal landmarks and constant reminders that the court and the entire judiciary, we're designed to be different different from the executive legislative bland branches amount to a teachable moment for anyone who. Gives a WHO cares to learn. Especially valuable these days since many high schools and colleges apparently, no longer teach civics or a positive you a positive view of what made America. Unique. In the history. Of Mankind. The most refreshing part of the day. Was To better understand. Who Amy Barrett actually is and why so many of her students and a professional college rave about her intellect and her kindness, and well, why trump picked her in the first place? One inside came when Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois asked whether she had watched the Joy George Floyd video. Yes, she said. She did with some of her children. Including daughter Vivian. One of two black Haitians she and her husband adopted. We worked together there it said. adding. that. Racism is. A poor aunt. She later responded to a question about same sex marriage by saying she rejected discrimination. Of any kind. Asks why she decided to accept and go through. What she readily admitted as far as this confirmation hearing goes is an excruciating process. Here's what she said. I should serve my country. And my family's all in on that because they share my belief in the rule of law. Concludes, Michael Goodwin and the New York. Post. We live in a time of upheaval. But America is truly beyond lucky that such extraordinary people still answer the call. To Public Service. And indeed?

It's Friday, October. Fifth, I'm Dorothy wiccan executive editor of the New Yorker. Today's the fifth episode of the challengers a monthly segment devoted to the twenty eight team midterm races across the country. We're focusing on candidates who are challenging establishment figures as a way to discuss a people's outside Washington and to define issues that are shaping the future of the two parties this month. The sunbelt Democrats have engaged in surprisingly competitive races across the southeast and southwest in states that Trump carried in two thousand sixteen Democrats hope to retake the Senate in Texas, Tennessee and Arizona among other states. Last Saturday in Austin, Senate candidate bid or Rourke host of the largest single candidate political rally in the country. Since Trump's victory in two thousand sixteen during a Facebook live update with his supporters this summer Aurore talked about the grassroots organizing driving his campaign. Because we can't find many other Senate races that raised this kind of money in a three month period. We can't find one in Texas made the everyone that has done this end to do it in this way through small dollar contributions is that's that's what democracy looks like. That's how we get this back. That's how we in Texas. That's how we do something great for the country. Ben Wallace wells joins me to discuss the new progressivism in the sun belt and how Democrats most powerful donors are supporting candidate to appeal to younger voters. Hype ban welcome back. Hey, hi, nice to be with you. I want to start with Bidault a Rourke because the mainstream media seems to a fall in love with him, and he is as everyone now knows challenging Ted Cruz for his Senate seat in Texas. What is so electrifying about his candidacy, his youth and his his fourth rightfulness in each of these states. But in Texas. Particularly, it's not just that Trump won the state. You know, it's that you'll have to go back. You know, a quarter century to find a democrat who is elected to the Senate. You have to go back years to find a democrat elected governor. Most of those races have been uncompetitive. Most of the times that Democrats have nominated a candidate for a a statewide office in Texas. They have been transactional pro-business, moderate, a Rourke is different. He's young. He's energetic. I think key to to who he is is that he has like many of these other candidates across legion emphasized that he is a progressive. He is a liberal, you know, when he is the first politician to call attention really to the crisis with families at the border. He has called for universal healthcare. You know, he's touted his f- rating from the NRA he has called for just a much more expansive social Veld welfare program in. In in Texas in large part, I thinking he is a good candidates, talented, charismatic, but he is forthrightly progressive in a way to Texans have not seen in a generation. And how is this playing in the more rural regions of the state? I understand in the cities like Austin, you know that he would have a big following, but it seems less obvious in some of these other areas. I think that's basically right. I think that you know his his vote is is going to have to be a liberal urban vote clus, you know, finding enough moderates to flip in in suburbs of Houston in Dallas auroras from El Paso. He's he's made a very big deal about going everywhere. He's, he's tried to project a kind of Obama like optimism, you know about future. But you know, as a basic matter his, his coalition in Texas is not going to be full of small towns where people love guns in God. You know his his coalition is going to be in Austin in San Antonio in Dallas in Houston. I think the thing that. Gives him hope is that those cities have outgrown immensely over the past couple of decades and have grown more progressive candidates like Ovar kept run to the left, but other Senate candidates in the sunbelt like Kristen cinemas one that I'm thinking about that we've talked about on this program in Arizona, and Phil breezed in Tennessee are running pretty moderate campaigns. So describe the overall trend in progressivism in the south and what it reflects about some of the tensions in the Democratic Party. About how far left some candidates feel. It's wise to go three best cases were a progressive. It's kind of resurgence in the set in the sun belt are aerobics candidacy in Texas. Stacey Abrams candidacy for governor of Georgia and Andrew gillen's candidacy for for governor of Florida. Both Gillerman Abrahams through fit the, the orca mold of this is significantly more. Progressive, even even than overwork. He's called to abolish Icees for teaching. The president is called for dramatic raise in cut in the corporate tax in Florida. He is a sort of retinas will progressive anywhere. And it's also were saying that he like Abram says African American, right? He would be both the first African American governors in their states ever in in addition to being the most progressive candidates that we can recall a in Florida. George, respectively. I think that what what is happening there is that you have a generation of candidates who are starting to come up in states that are because they have been growing so substantially over the last fifteen years have gotten younger and who cities have grown more progressive and where the democratic base these much more tightly resembles the democratic, but he's around the country. A cinema is is a more complicated characterize, as you suggest. She started out as a member of the green party or political career. You know, she is bisexual, she's made guest, and these things are sort of signatures social signatures that you would just not expect for a statewide democratic candidate from Arizona in recent memory. But in her political career, as she has gone through her thirties in our early forties, she has tacked to the center in this campaign. You know, she is emphasizing her her bipartisan record in congress in Arizona. But the general pattern that you see across these states is that there is a sort of cultural base for Democrats to run as liberals that you just hadn't seen in the south of the south west in in recent memory, especially in Arizona and Florida. You think about the snowbirds in these elderly white people who generally are very conservative yet and vote yet, and you know the the demographic pattern in those places. Has been that they've gotten much more diverse as they grown in other other parts of the country have declined in population. They have gotten younger again, this is sort of more concentrated in the cities. It's more concentrated in the democratic base in the real test for in November is whether those new progressive certain faces in places like Orlando and San Antonio and Houston in Atlanta, and to an extent Phoenix whether those those those younger can progressive cores will actually turn out. There's also a lot of speculation about whether the midterms are going to be a referendum on Trump and disagreement among Democrats who are running about how the party should be responding. Could you talk a little bit about maybe one of these candidates in how here fee is handling that? I think for some of these candidates in media as the one I know best is in place to start edgy Gillam thirty, nine years old. He's African American. He's. Mayor of Cala. Hassi, Florida. I think you're some of these candidates. Trump is a signal of the sort of generational problem with American politics. He embodies not just division, but extremism win. Gillam goes around, Florida talks to audiences about what they're fighting against. Even though he is running for governor. He's very quick to link his opponent. Rhonda Santa's to Trump a Santa has been running very much. Their Trump molds e like Rourke takes great energy from the opposition to you know, order wall. He talks about the excesses of ice, you know, Gillam for instances call to abolish ice. So even though that is a state wide race, you know, it's not one where of four breath cabin offering senses is on the ballot. It Trump's presence in extremism of Trump's agenda of has has given Gillam kind of clear oppositional point and how. How is skill lem handled the issue of race after he won the primary and my right about this, the Republican nominee Ron Santa's told voters not to monkey up the state. And then of course, denied that the remark was racist. The way that descent has responded to was was absolutely astonishing. As you say, doom has run a campaign in the primary that was premised on on a coalition of young people and minority voters that is basically the democratic coalition that these other candidates have leaned down as well. You know, at environmental event the other day, he said that you know what matters is not the color of my skin, but the color of the red green algae. That's that's clogging up clogging Florida's waters. But basically he has leaned in to race. You know, he has made stand your ground opposition to the standard ground law, a centerpiece of his campaign. He has emphasized that young African American men who have been shot and killed by police officers in Florida. Going back to Trayvon Martin Abramson orcas. Well, the language of of social Justice is berry a present in their campaigns. They talk about massing. Carson nation and the problems of criminal Justice system in it's sort of hard to imagine the rhetoric of any of those three candidates without kind of influence of the black lives matter movement since troops. They see aprons as well. So women are sure to turn out in big numbers in November, especially after that Brett Kavanagh nomination brawl took a little bit about how some of these candidates are appealing to them. I think the one thing that has been at the center of each of these candidates campaigns has been an emphasis on gun control in on on the extremity of the NRA. Andrew gillum calls black women, the saviors of the universe because of how loyal they have been as voters to the Democratic Party into progressive candidates. You know, Stacey Abrams is obviously a is herself an emblem of maybe a little bit of the progress that African American women are beginning to make in leadership roles in the Democratic Party. The moral issues at the moment, whether they're around gun control, but whether they're. Reproductive rights in access whether around LGBT Accu rights. These are things that these candidates are speaking directly to. It's it's a big part of why we say that they are. They are more progressive than anything that's sort of come the four recent memory in those states. So big part of what these candidates are speaking to in a way that you know prior Democrats, it might have been the fuzzier or week or more compromised on and getting back to the saviors of the universe. It in the south black women have been launching really impressive organizing campaigns and say, why -ssume that was part of Doug Jones is Senate victory in Alabama, special election where ninety eight percent of black women voted for him. I, it's astonishing yet it not just ninety eight percent of black women who turned out that the turnout from African American women was extraordinarily and the Jones campaign is something that democratic operatives at organizers across the south point to as. An organizing model, you know, you see much more active organizing efforts being led both by nonprofit organizations targeting African American women voters, but also by, you know, historically black, sororities. And so I think that yet in in the Trump era, there is a a very active organizing effort. That's sort of both grassroots end end not that aims to to turn out African American women in the same way that they turned out during the the Doug Jones run race in Alabama. So a lot of money has poured into the Florida campaigns in particular, and it's that's probably a good place to talk about what big funders in both parties are up to Tom sti- or the hedge fund manager and left wing. Democratic donor has supported gallons campaign. Soros has been involved in funding a lot of the democratic progressive campaigns. Could you talk a little bit about to what extent that's seems to be making a difference in states that Trump carried. Yeah, I think it's it's a really important and under appreciated aspect of of what's happening with with the resistance. The democratic movements this year are organic. They are grassroots. They are driven by a lot of rage out what has happened in the Trump era, but they all they are also funded by a snares. You know, sort of since dire in particular Styron source, both put more than a million dollars into his campaign. Those around him told me he could not have competed in Florida for the democratic nomination without that money, Dylan himself. As somebody told me he is dying with George Soros in his in his house in New York. He has. He has been in Tom stiers house in San Francisco to to meet with him. There's a really interesting kind of complicated thing happening here. Some of billionaires who are most influential in democratic primaries having themselves radicalized when I met with Tom style in Boston at two months ago. His whole spiel was about the generational transformation in the Democratic Party, how much more progressive. It was becoming an how he wanted to fund that Gillam was was sort of his. His prime example of Abrahams cinema. I believe he's he's putting money into two. So Kevin, how closely you've been watching so many of these races? I am going to ask you to be a pundit here, and how confident are you that the Democrats could retake the house? I'm pretty confident you know, I think that the places where seats are really up for grabs are played pretty nicely into the Democrats hands this this time. You know, there are a lot of seats in a suburban districts in California in Texas in Illinois, you know, all over the country in Pennsylvania that are up for grabs in Emba. Geography of those is pretty striking. You know a couple of dozen seats where the Republican incumbent just cannot get fifty percent in any poll, which is a really strong indicator. That the votes won't be there for them. Come election day. The Senate is is obviously a much more difficult ask and a little bit more video syncretic because there are there are the reviewer racist, but I, I would say, you know, most of the prediction systems say it's about seventy five percent chance. Democrats take the house I would. I would be maybe a little bit more optimistic than that. But for the Democrats, I swore to myself that I would not raise Brett Cavanaugh in this podcast. But actually I have to because I wanna know what you think about. There's been a lot of speculation in the last couple of days about whether the cavenaugh brouhaha it could be helpful to Republicans who in these some of these races who had been nervous up until then I think it's possible. I think that Republicans desperately wanted to be the case. They have been searching for something to get to make their voters. Think that this midterm is important. There were a number of memos. A couple of weeks ago that said that Trump's own relentless positively about the elections about red wave coming may conservative voters sort of disinclined to get out there in boat because they thought it was a fait accompli, but we are still a month away and the velocity at which the news has moved during the past two years, not to mention the past two weeks at my God at just the intensity of political life. Right now. I think we are a long way from knowing that we're gonna see hundreds of thousands of Republican voters across the country who are not previously planning. Come out to vote, decide that something about the way the Democrats talked about cavenaugh was so offensive to them that now yes, they are motivated. I think the conventional wisdom is that if that does happen, it's going to help Republicans a lot more Senate races than than it house races because you know, as we've talked about the contested Senate seats are largely in. Rural in conservative states with a contested house. Seats are not. They are suburban, moderate seat. So you know, I think that that's reasonable expectation of the direction of Republican enthusiasm. Just not sure that we, we'd seen anything to say with confidence that a month from now have given everything that might happen if there is still going to be a huge anger from Republicans Democrats. But you know, that's why they hold the boats. Thanks so much Ben, Ben Wallace. Well, since a staff writer and a regular contributor to the New Yorker dot com.

Cruz vs. O'Rourke Debate, Lottery Records & Moonmoons - 10/17/18
"The blaze radio network. On demand. Pat gray is here on the blaze radio network. Six o'clock central time and you don't that means time for Pat gray unleashed in the morning. I guess in the morning we're even more unleashed you know? Yeah, exalt because we get up earlier and we're crankier and things pisses off a little bit more. I was a little scared this morning, walk it on my driveway. I heard coyotes. Oh yeah. Just a pack of them. Probably killing some baby calf or something. I don't know. It's a pleasant thought, yeah, that's how I started my day. Good. Anyway, we got more on the Saudi journalist killing. I mean, some really grisly details have come out from the Turks about that. Share with the president as said about also president was very Trump. Esque yesterday, get into that. There's another mass illegal immigrant caravan headed our way. This one about three thousand people so far and growing every single day. Three thousand people all at once. Also the, there's a feud going on between Ben Sasse Senator SAS and Sean Hannity, which is really unfortunate doing, let let the liberals eat their own. But. Apparently it can't be just the liberals eating their own. We've got to do it as well and the the Beto and Ted Cruz debate that happened last night Beto is trying to make up. Rounded, seven to nine point deficit right now, and he's, I don't think he can do it. In fact, I think that the Ted is gonna win this going away, but we'll see. It's interesting because CNN actually fact check some of the things that Beto has been saying on the campaign trail. He loves to talk about his mother who is a life, long Republican, and you know, even though she's a lifelong Republican, just a staunch conservative and has only voted for Republicans and we're only consider Republicans her entire life. She's going to cast a vote for her son. Let's sweet though. Very nice. So first of all you would expect even if she has been lifelong Republican vote for her son. Of course, she's going to vote for you're gonna vote for Ted Cruz over your own son. There might be an issue in that family. However. This life, long Republican, that only votes Republican voted for Barack Obama in two thousand eight. Like saying she's a lifelong Republican, but she loved Joe Stalin and voted for him like seven times. Don't go your lifelong Republican, but you jump into the water for the Marxist in two thousand eight. That's that's the one you decided to cross the aisle, four. Yes, she couldn't by the way. She couldn't remember who she voted for in twenty sixteen. You can't remember who you voted for two years ago. Well, I mean that's nonsense she remembers. She voted for Barack Obama. No eight. She can't remember who she voted for in two thousand sixteen. Strange. Also she has voted in democrat primaries every year in Texas every year. There's been a vote since two thousand this life long Republican life long. Well, except for the last eighteen years when she's voted democrat. She also donated to Brock Obama's presidential campaign two thousand seven this life, long Republican in the world. The one thing she did that seems Republicans. She donated to Ted Cruz senatorial campaign in two twenty twelve. I mean, really interesting. Wow, she is very interesting. So she's all over the place, but this life, long Republican, who's voted Democrats thousand had voted for Barack Obama essentially Marxist. She's good vote. Surprisingly for her own son this year. I love it. I can't believe CNN actually fact checked and looked into that and his interesting, but they did so good for them a little credit where credit is due. They actually did something that was sort of journalistic. That's amazing. Write this down, right this day down. Yeah, you might want them Tober seven twenty eight. Okay. Also. As far as the debate last night they they discussed abortion quite a bit. Here's the debate between Ted Cruz and Beto on abortion. Last on the question of life. Congressman Rourke is at the extreme pro-abortion side. So he is repeatedly voted in favor of late term abortions. He has repeatedly voted in favor of taxpayer funding for abortions say that that's not consistent with views of the people of Texas the people of Texas. And I will say, especially the Hispanic community, we don't want to see taxpayer funded Medicaid funding abortions, late term abortions. I think that's extreme and that's disconnected, and I will notice well on the question of judges, judges is a massive divide between congressman organ. I was proud to help lead the effort to confirm Neal Gorsuch to the supreme court. I was proud to help lead the effort to confirm Justice. Brett, Kevin onto the court. Congressman Roque would've voted against both of them and he wants to see like Hillary Clinton promised to appoint left-wing judicial activist who impose their own policy preferences from the bench. And I don't think that's what the people Texas want. We want judges and justices who will follow the constitution and follow the law. Thank you congressman. You have ninety seconds for response Senator Cruz as a very troubling record. When it comes to judicial nominations confirmations, he supported the nomination of judge Jeff matere, describe transgender children as part of Satan's plan believes in conversion therapy. He's supported the nomination of a judge someone to be a judge who've never tried a case before another potential judge who could not tell us whether Brown versus the board of education was correctly, decided from our perspective in state where you can be. Fired for being gay. I want Justice who believes in civil rights from the perspective of a state that ranks fiftieth invoquer turn out in the country, not by accident by design, some people drawn out of their democracy. I wanna Justice who believes in voting rights, and I state that is at the epicenter of the maternal mortality crisis. As we made it harder and harder for women to get access to the healthcare that they need to get that cervical cancer screening to see that family planning provider to see a provider of any kind. We're losing them faster than almost any other state almost any other developed country in the world. I will only vote to confirm supreme court Justice who believes in a woman's right to make her own decisions about her own body and who has the healthcare access to be able to do. So we should be the next junior Senator from the state of Texas to work with our colleagues to work with the administration to have justices who will rule in favor of people in our needs, not corporations, not special interest, not the political action committees. Those are some very significant needs that we have in Texas, right? Now not represented by judge now, Justice cavenaugh. And so this is a decision I'm concerned about decision. He's concerned about he's concerned about the wrong things. He's he's concerned about a woman's right to choose instead of the choice that is being made to end the life of a human being. I just can't understand how they blow past that fact, and it's perfectly fine everything. Ted said, he didn't. He didn't deny any of it. In fact, he really confirmed all of it. So he is for later versions. He, he only cares about the reproductive rights of a woman, not whether or not children are born in the state or any other state. So there is there's that discussion. There's also here's Ted talking about climate change. President Trump said on Sunday that something is changing in regards to the climate. You're clearly on record for years saying, there's no evidence to back that up. Did nothing exist yet tobacco, a major oil companies, including Texas based, Exxon Mobil says, even on this website, the risk of climate change is clear and warrants action. That's ExxonMobil's onwards. So what do you tell Texas companies who think this really is a problem? Well, listen, of course, the climate is changing. The climate has been changing from the dawn of time. The climate will change as long as we have a planet earth. I am the son of two mathematicians and computer programmers me to believe in science. I. Share the science space subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee, and indeed in that capacity, I chaired a hearing looking on the science and data behind global warming and we heard testimony. We heard actual science data far too many Democrats approach this issue, not as a matter of science. I think we should follow the science and follow the evidence, but instead what they approach it as as a matter of government power, they want the power to control the economy that has led, for example, congressman Rourke to cast some votes that I think are really harmful to the people of Texas. For example, congressman voted in favor of ten dollar a barrel tax on every barrel oil produced in the state of Texas. That would have been absolutely devastating to the state of Texas by the way, ten dollars a barrel that works out to about twenty four cents a gallon that every one of us would pay. You go fill up your car truck that would hurt the people of Texas and let me point out. Look, a robust energy sector is good for all of Texas are million. Of jobs that depend on a robust oil and gas sector and congressman or rooks record voting against Texas oil, a gas voting against energy that hurts the economy and hurts jobs. It's not right for Texas and let me put out all of those oil and gas workers. They buy homes, they buy cars and trucks. They get health care that they give to churches and schools, and by the way, the university of Texas Texas, say an get hundreds of millions of dollars for my energy that your time Senator. Let's move onto ninety second response from this war. This is what you can expect over the course of this debate. Senator Cruz is not going to be honest with you. He's going to make up positions and votes that I've never held or ever taken. He's dishonest. It's why the president called blind Ted and it's why the nickname stuck because it's true. The climate is changing and man made climate change is affect three hundred years after the light. Now we should be able to listen to the scientists and follow their advice which which scientist you wanna listen to thirty seven thousand who don't agree with man caused climate change. I, I went to great response actually from Ted, of course, the climate is changing. It's changed from day one and through modern times it's always changed. It's been hotter than this. It's been colder than this. It will be hotter than this. It will be colder than this. This is a is a climate that continually morphs. Have we have a changing ever changing planet here and they know that and for some reason, no, that doesn't make any sense to them. Now doesn't make any sense to them. Four, four Beddoe to deny. We'll have to fact check that whether or not he, he voted for the Bill that would have raised the gas tax, ten dollars. A barrel will have to look into that. But then they talked about border control. Here's a cruise on the border and congressman over or sides with liberal extremists on the national level, instead of the people of Texas instead of jobs of Texas, and by the way under our great to Texas leads and energy across the. Representative. This question about immigration policy, we know your position and passion for the dreamers, and we know that your adamantly against extending the existing border fence. This question here is about border security. If we don't need a border wall, can you please look at the people of Texas tonight and tell them what we do need be happy to and listen. I don't know that there's another person who has a greater stake in this issue than I do. Amy nyah raising Ulysses and Molly and Henry in El Paso, Texas one half of the largest binational community on the border. The defining border community, we care about our kids safety. I care about the those that are representing congress care about the safety of every single person in the state of Texas. El Paso in fact, is one of the safest cities in the United States of America because we have role class loans, police and sheriff's deputies. But it's also because we are city of immigrants quarter of those that I represent. Were born in a country. Another country chose us came here to this country and by their very presence made it better. No-ball is going to solve legitimate security concerns, but guns, smart policy will let me describe one of those to you Senator John Cornyn and I, though he's a Republican and democrat, he's in the Senate, and I'm in the house, worked on policy together to invest in our ports of entry. That's where more than ninety percent of everyone and everything that ever comes into the United States. I crosses having a better idea of who and what comes into our country demonstrably makes us safer. And at the same time, those customs officers are able to assimilate legitimate trade and travel that's connected to more than a million jobs in the state of Texas. As we all know here, the home of Toyota trade is the lifeblood of the state of Texas. If we can make our communities more secure as this Bill did and facilitate more job growing trade. Really figured something out. I think that John Cornyn I have been able to do it Republicans. That's. Other on an issue that makes us better. That's your time. Thank you Senator. You have ninety seconds to respond. So everyone should notice and his answer that he wanted to talk about trade. He wanted to talk about customs. You want to talk about everything except border security and lemme say there's no race in the country with a stark divide on immigration. This race here in the state of Texas as for me, I'm incredibly honored to have received the formal endorsement of the national border patrol council. The union of the men and women who risk their lives keeping our nation safe. I will note here at this debate. I'm very pleased. We have Brandon judge and Paul Perez both from the national border patrol council. The reason they're supporting me is I've led the fight to secure the border building the wall using technology, increasing boots on the ground. We can keep our community safe. Congressman work, not only opposes a wall, but he has said we have too many fences and walls already on the border. He wants to tear down the ones we have, and I'll note he brought up El Paso, El Paso. Is right across from war as one of the most dangerous cities in the world, three thousand murders last year. There's a wall there. That wall is one of the tools you use to protect us, but but let me give you an example of just how extreme congressman Roque is on immigration takes law commonsense legislation, overwhelming majority of Texans supported. I'm the author of Kate's law in the Senate that says, violent, criminal, illegal aliens. If they're deported repeatedly should face a mandatory minimum prison sentence. Congressman Roque voted against Cates law that's wrong. We need. We should not be releasing violent criminals into our community. It's right. Good stuff from tickers Bego bell Buttle whatever is however you pronounce his Hispanic nickname for this Irish America. Continually throws out El Paso is these one of if not the safest, it's thirteenth in the state of Texas. It is not one of the safest cities in America. It's not. He continues to lie about that over and over and over again and like Ted pointed out, whereas is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. It's right next door. You want everybody pouring across that border. No, thank you. No, thank you. You're having a hard time hearing this debate. We've got more on it. When your ears aren't clean, they, you might not hear the great things that Ted has to say and the asinine things Beto has to say.

They talked to, they had some closing statements, but they also got into the debt a little bit, which is fascinating because the debt this year is going to wind up over a trillion dollars. Again, eight trillion dollars and this with Republicans in the majority of congress. So fascinating to see what Beto and Ted had to say on debt and wellness. Only one of us has with good friends and El Paso started a small business met that payroll every balanced. The books made sure that we delivered for our clients. Only one of us has served at the local government level every single year. Balancing the budget, sing each other, not as Republicans and Democrats, but has cancelled members entrusted with fiduciary responsibility to deliver for the tax payers of every single year we did and for Senator Cruz to say that this isn't going to bust the budget at a time of twenty one. Trillion dollars in debt. When we're on track to deficit, spend to the tune of a trillion dollars a year. He voted at two trillion dollars, and those tax cuts disproportionately will flow to corporations who are already sitting on record piles of cash and the Ardy wealthy in a country that is riven with income inequality, unseen. Since the last gilded age. She's. Aides talk baby, egging, ising. All right. You're talking about the debt that he that he voted for because of the tax cut. We just had the highest tax in income tax returns from the American people in US history. After the tax cuts. When you get the tax cuts, you actually brings in more revenue to the federal government and it just dead was just proven out this year record high revenue came in to the federal government because of the tax cuts. Ted bring that up. I don't know. I don't. I don't. He did. He did. He bring it up? Yeah, I'm not sure if that's one of the clips we have that, but. So Begnaud doesn't know what he's talking about on any of these issues and it's agonizing to have to listen to. It's just it's absolutely incredible. It's amazing that we're hearing someone like a better Aurora in a Senate debate for the state of Texas, isn't it? That's the biggest takeaway. For me. You'd expect this in Massachusetts or California, not here in Texas, and he's he's seems to be okay with telling the people of Texas that he's essentially a socialist any wants to tax people more good and he's already taxing them. Good. Strang. Jeffrey says, this guy keeps talking. Defensor the Maury talks the further temples ahead. Here's your ten dollar a barrel, tax accusation that cruise Levy checked. Yeah. Did overall vote for a ten dollar a barrel tax on every barrel of oil in Texas. The cruise campaigns been hitting this pretty hard. They got billboard advertisements on it in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Dallas. And these billboards say, Beto Arar wants you to pay twenty four cents per gallon of gas, more more. Yeah. This claim goes back to the days of Obama who proposed a ten dollar tax on every barrel of oil paid for by energy companies to fund rail and highway projects of win House. Republicans in two thousand sixteen introduced resolution opposing the proposal Rourke voted against it. A Rourke has since defended his votes saying that he wants to find more ways to fund national infrastructure projects. So anyway, so it's I mean, it's true. It was it was a way to kind of look, okay, Obama. You want to propose that and we're going to have a vote that opposes that. And so in. Games games, crew said that a robust energy sector is good for all of Texas, which is absolutely true. So I guess it's somewhat true. He didn't vote for the actual Bill, but he voted against the Bill that would have stopped the Bill saying. So that's the way Washington works. So we've gotten a renaissance mention and a gilded age mention this far by beta. So Ted talked about civility in the United States, and here's that part of the debate is what responsibility do you have to bring civility and respect back to the country lesson days? And I think everyone of us has a responsibility to bring civility and respect. That's something I've endeavored to do throughout politics is to focus on substance to focus on issues to focus on record. And so the personal attacks the going to the gutter that is so common in politics. I try not to engage in. If you look at my disagreements with congressman Aurore, they haven't been personal attacks. They'd been his voting record in congress that has been markedly out of step with the people of Texas. You're right that there is a loss of civility. There is an anger. There is a rage on the far left that is really frightening. The images. Hold on. Let me answer with. Don't interrupt me the images of a left-wing mob beating on the doors of the supreme court. That's not good for our country. We can disagree while treating each other with respect treating each other with civility. I think that's important. We can discuss are tax cuts good or is raising taxes, good. That's a discussion we ought to have, but it shouldn't be personally shouldn't go down to the gutter. It should focus on actual substance and let me tell you. I think the lowest point we have seen as the confirmation hearings for Justice Cavanaugh where we saw Senate Democrats. Be willing to smear judge Cavin on his family, be willing to repeat unsupported uncorroborated allegations and go after him in a way that I thought was shameful. It was important that that process be fair that Dr fuller get a full fare opportunity to tell her story that she be treated with respect and she was, but it was important with respect as well, and he was not. All right. So then better wrapped up his his closing statement with this right now, walls Muslim, bans, the press as the enemy of the people taking kids away from their parents. After they've survived a horrifying two thousand mile journey seeking asylum here in this country, the bitterness, the partisanship pettiness, the dishonesty that defines so much of the national conversation we are in desperate need right now of inspiration, but I'll tell you what traveling the state of Texas meeting people regardless of their walk of life, their background, their party affiliation. You have inspired me. You've inspired me to transcend the obstacles to be the big courageous, bold, strong match for this moment on any issue that challenges us in Texas were nearly half of schoolteachers work. A second job just to make ends meet making sure that we're there for them, pay them a living wage and ensure that they can teach to the child, not the test and the state of immigrants, making sure that. We lead the national conversation free dreamers from any fear of deportation and the least insured state in the country could take the lead on guaranteed high-quality universal healthcare. And then he had this. Right. Yeah, I think that was the hit of the whole debate when he broke out his. It's so good. You know the Qatar stylings. Wow. That'll overall Vaughn the phrases, so good personally come with so good. Not one of them. Also, it's kind of interesting. He's been asked, you know, he's he's raised thirty eight million dollars for the Senate thirty eight million. And so because he's such a socialist, I guess everybody thinks he's gonna share. S he? He's going to share with everybody else about the rest of your democrat friends who haven't raised thirty million dollars. Are you going to share some of that money? No. Was his answer just no better? Not sharing nuts, wealth. Mr. socialists, wow, Mr., compassionate. Mr. I'm all about the downtrodden. You're gonna share your money? No. Okay. He said, I'm focused on Texas. Most of our contributions have come from Texas another another stick. All of them have come from people. So none of them have come from rocks. Or. Cows or rivers or trees. So cattle haven't donated any money to your campaign. It's all then for people, corporations aren't people link. You. A corporation doesn't have people in it. So bizarre to me. This people think they're, it's come from people. Oh, so none of the animals on this planet have donated to your campaign. That's really incredible. Also goes to show how selfish animals are very psych. We should control them and you believe that dime if they give into bell Rourke, that all their money's gonna Ted animals. All right. You know, losing weight can be a real struggle and it gets tougher. The older you get like it. You got for me at about. Two. Jeffy been? No, that's right. That's years later. I was about to it a half, but two and a half, but there is there is some help that you can get and it's called reduce own. It's zero. Z. o. n. e. what is it?

The other day somebody from across the country reminded us that better will Rourke had tried to join the Hispanic caucus. Now it's actually something I don't know that we'd ever heard. And so we looked into it and back in twenty thirteen he sort of did try to join the Hispanic caucus. That's he's a white guy Irishman. Right. A white guy. It's a Hispanic caucus. So I, I don't know that they want you in that caucus and it. In fact, they don't the thing they don't, and they didn't. Win. El Paso voters elected him to congress. His supporters said they chose a fresh in progressive voice to champion issues critical to the porta community. But what they lost was a seat on an influential caucus whose members have recently had recently met with Barack Obama and got got together with him on issues like immigration reform, border security, healthcare, all that because he had beaten a Latino for for the congressional seat. So he tried to get into the Hispanic caucus so that they wouldn't lose their place on the Hispanic caucus. Course end his nickname, obviously is is popular among Latinos, and that's why so many Latinos think he is in fact let you know and he's not. So he tried to get into the Hispanic caucus and the rules disallowed him from joining the Hispanic caucus. So he tried. He wanted desperately to replace Sylvester Reyaz who represented district that by the way is eighty percent Hispanic and who's voting voting age population is seventy. Seven point, six percent Hispanic. So he couldn't get in and he was asked what he thought about the Caucasus rules that disallowed him from getting in. And he said, I respect by laws and he didn't comment any further, but he didn't try to join the Hispanic caucus with this what my but I've got a Hispanic nickname. That's not enough. That's not enough. That's no, that's not enough. Robert Francis. That's not enough. No, but my nickname, I've had it since I was five. It's Beto people call me Beto. Yeah, my guess is they didn't call it better when he played his guitar on the Paso TV station, we was what twenty one. So I'm guessing I'm guessing it's more recent than when he was five. But maybe he's added his whole life. Triple eight, nine hundred thirty three ninety three. Also there's a series of ads done by Richard link ladder mocking Ted Cruz on various issues like his toughness. We played that one and that ended with with this catchphrase now that we absolutely love. Oh. Come on Ted, that's going to be the that's going to be the end line. I think all of these commercials. Apparently a while ago, Ted had mentioned that he loves white castle, which is kind of California based, I think, right California-based. Fast food joint. It's not here. It's I haven't seen any here. Don't they have castle in Texas? They do. Yeah, I think we do well one one. That's one in a state of twenty eight million people. So so what a burger is is the big restaurant chain here. And this Beto ad actually Beto claims not to have anything to do with this. This is from Richard link ladder. So it's paid for supposedly by others, not who are not in the bed Ocampo, but here's the latest hitting Ted Cruz on his white castle love, triple mate, water, burger liberal. What does that even mean? Ted, everybody I know in Texas lacks Waterberg just as a consumer. I'm a big fan of eating white castle burgers. I like their little burgers. I don't even know what that is. Not a white castle. The nine hundred miles of Texas. Ted. Maybe up in candidate. But not Tex. Critical ad paid for by CPAC, not authorized by any candidate or candidates committee come all. Ted. I love Ted that that's good stuff. Man. Those are good ads. I mean, let's give credit where credit is due. Those are good ads. They're, they're funny. They're nicely delivered. They hit him where he lives. And Beddoes not part of it, which makes it. I think more likable, actually. That's a very good point. That was nowhere to be seen. I don't like that guy. My surprise people. I will say though that I, I now believe that in the last few weeks I've seen more Ted Cruz signs that assigns and we were starting become a little bit concerned at one point when Beto arrc just it doesn't say overall, because nobody he doesn't want anybody to know that he's Irish. So just as Beto for Senate and those were popping up all over the place. And that's what to say on the ballot. Beto aerobic. Yep. About the way update on white castle. The nearest white castle to Texas would be in Columbia, Missouri. So really, that's what the maps that we don't even have one. I'm not seeing one on this. No. Anyway. Okay, they're sold. They do sell white castle burgers in the frozen section of. I will love it store the love warming meat from the frozen food section always so fresh into lists. Way. That's head though that that so Missouri is the closest place. Yeah, yeah. Okay. So there you go. I don't like him anyway. I've had white castle and I'm not a breast. See. I grew up in the south and crystal crystal Bristol. Yeah, love those things. What's the one that just up the street from from the studio here and that was a California based place, but they're all over the place here. Now, what is that one in and out burger in and out. But what a burger is the big deal here. I don't get the big deal with what burger but most Texas do do. That's something that I don't understand either. It's fine, but it's not like it's not like Chick-fil-A. No, I will murder someone to get into a chick away, but a what? A burger. It's like. No. I mean what I would go there and think, oh my gosh, this is delicious. No. Just overcooked burgers. Like Burger King or McDonald's or anywhere else until you get to Chick-fil-A. And then you've got something delicious Ted teeth into Ted or PetO. And that's why Beto just did that skateboarding thing at what a burger. That's to show he's the. I'm the hip Texas guy. Water burger now. Nine and got it even skateboard it in their parking lot and complete glory nation with that nab we. So I think of that still have that skateboard ad. It's not even it's just like randomly skateboarding because my name is better. And that's what I do in the parking lot of my nearest neighborhood. What a burger there is a way for the xenophobic. By so fast. So obviously he's making a big deal fact that, yes, he's cool share. This is on a skateboard in a water burger parking lot. I don't know if it gets. Doesn't get any more Beddoe than that, and that's the point that guy makes. So they make a point out of recording him in a parking lot at WADA burger skateboarding. Hold on. He's cool, and he's Texas. And he makes really needs sound effects. It show how fast you can go on the skateboard. Great. Triple eight, nine hundred thirty three ninety. Three. Also speaking of Washington politics, Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell called the twenty one trillion dollar national debt and ballooning budget deficit quote, very disturbing unquote. I don't know if you're aware of this Senator, but you bend the Senate majority leader now for eight years. Is it the tails? You could do something about this and yet you don't. You just keep making it worse. If it's very disturbing, do something about it. But he blames part bipartisan reluctance to embrace entitlement reform US budget deficit, expanded seven hundred seventy nine billion in the fiscal year Gordon into the treasury department. It's one hundred. Thirteen billion dollar jump from the previous year and the worst number since twenty twelve. I wouldn't even worry about that. So here's, here's the Senator discussing the budget to ask you about the national debt twenty one trillion dollars the deficit seven hundred seventy nine billion dollars. Some predicting that could reach a tree. Million in two thousand nineteen. What's going on with that? Very disturbing driven by the three big entitlement programs that are very popular, Medicare, social security and Medicaid that's seventy percent of what we spend every year subject. We were just discussing the funding of the government is about thirty percent of what we. There's been a partisan reluctance to tackle entitlement changes because of the popularity of those programs. Hopefully, at some point here we'll get serious about this. We haven't been yet. Roddick it's for first of all, it's amazing that any journalist is even ask it about it. Well, yeah. When did that become an issue for any journalist? Exactly and tried to pull the same thing. That's all of a sudden they're getting religion on the debt. My gosh, where you during the bombs first years when it was over a trillion dollars, it was one point, three trillion one year. One point, maybe even one point, four or five remember correctly and that didn't bother anybody. That was fine. That's a good thing. In fact, it was Joe Biden who said, yeah, are you tell me we got to spend money to avoid bankruptcy? Yeah, that's what I'm telling you. Wait, what. He had more to say on the on what's going on in Washington. Every appear. If you kind of look at the tea leaves that divided government might actually yield two title reformer at least make it easier. We have that opportunity during the Obama. Yours talk for Obama about a number of times. It would have been the perfect time to do it. Thank of Reagan and tip O'Neill coming together and the early eighties to raise the age for social security. It took it out of the political arena and made it possible for it to be successful. That's what we had the chance to do. And they'll volunteers because we had divided government for six of his eight years. Unfortunately, it was not achieved. No. Fortunately, fortunately, it's never achieved no matter what did Mitch McConnell. Just make the argument to give a chamber to the Democrats in November. I don't know because he just said, well, I mean, Reagan and tip O'Neill came together, but give Republicans every branch and we can't figure out entitlement reform. That's what he just said, and it's true. It's kind of weird for him to say, that's when we actually had. A budget surplus. I'm sorry to say for a couple of years during Clinton when the Republicans controlled congress, the more important issue you really does look like a turtles. True. Good point. That's the biggest takeaway here. He looks like a cartoon turtle that we see old reruns. You know, you put a shell on his back and I think he'd be put in an aquarium somewhere. I really think so think you're nine hundred thirty three thousand three. This portion of Pat gray unleashed brought to you by TAC pack. What is tack pack?

We're still having some of the fallout from the incredible revelation about the DNA of Elizabeth Warren finding out that she's so very native American. I mean, well, you know one sixty four th of her as native American one sixty four to one thousand thirty four thirty seconds or something. Roughly, what's interesting is the mainstream media treats that as if see, she proved it. She proved nothing. First of all, it didn't prove any anything about being native American didn't prove that at all. Secondly, the person that they found and they're trying to say is her great, great, great. Grandmother identifies as white. And when you identify is something that should end the discussion, shouldn't it? She identified herself back in the seventeen or early eighteen hundreds as a white person. Now they're trying to make that out like, well, that's just because native Americans were discriminated against. So she called herself white, but I. Always want to have it both ways. So you can identify that as white, but that's still they're still going to pin you as a native American person so that they can make out that Elizabeth Warren has some sort of Indian background in her very distant past. So. Lindsey, Graham who's been really good lately. I don't know what's happened in Lynn around late that because John McCain is no longer around. He's free to go back to being more conservative back to. I don't know. Well, he wasn't the beginning. Okay. The very beginning years ago, yes, yes. But there's a sticker from self. Now, here's, here's what he said about his DNA. I'm going to take a test all of you have. I've been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. IT may all be just talk, but you gotta find out in a couple of weeks. I'm gonna take this. You're gonna take. I'm taking it and they results going to be revealed here. This is my Trump moment. This reality. I just. I didn't really think much about it, but she's less than one tenth of one percent. I think I can beat her. I think I can beat her beater will US million dollars from the president to wanna casino enemy, but. Stop. Don't you have to be one sixteenth. I think one sixteenth native American casino and free college. So you get free college and casino not. You don't get a free casino. You still have to build it right. You can own put one on a on Indian land. Yes, so right, whatever you can't build it downtown Dallas, let's say, but you could go to a reservation and have yourself a casino if you're. Oh, you win the the mega millions. Coming up here. You might be able to build it wherever you're getting close to a billion dollars numbers up to. Up to a record. Eight hundred sixty eight million. Oh well yeah. It's almost to the point where it's worthwhile play now when it was five hundred and eighty five million I didn't. It's not even worth bothering but eight sixty eight. I'm starting to get interest. But what's the cash option? I mean, it's a lot less than that. Probably just rely. So they had no winning ticket among the numbers in Tuesday night's drawing for what was six hundred sixty seven million and at the time that was the biggest mega millions. Wow. So the estimated cash value of the jackpot now is eight hundred. Oh the cash value. So if you cash out and you get it all in one lump sum, yeah, four hundred ninety. Four million billion dollars not interested. That's like petting drawer man, right? Whatever right. Powerballs pretty high right now to what's that forty five, three or forty five million. Just two hundred million. All right. Dumb worth pointless. Not even not even worth it. All right, triple eight, nine hundred thirty. Three Ninety-three more pack released coming up. Grade is here on the please radio network. Nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three and Pat unleashed on Twitter. Some grisly details coming out from the Turks. On Saudi journalist, Jamal kashogi what they did to him now don't think we'll go through the details, but he had seven minutes, pure hell. It wasn't pretty. The us state bone saw on him while he was alive. Oh. Yeah, not good. Hey, good morning. Everyone morning. The kids this morning l. wake you up. If if you have a bone saw take into you in the morning. That will get the cobwebs right out of your eyes. So he apparently there were people who were there at the time, and we're downstairs at the consulate and listened to this and apparently. Took note of what was happening there, and then they tried to deny it. And now some are trying to blame the Turks who are trying to frame the Saudis. Seems seems a little unlikely that it was the Turks, try to frame the Saudi of all the places to try to. They going to break into the Saudi consulate and do this. That doesn't doesn't seem tape it. We'll do likely come on. So the president has been. Some of the things he said about this don't really add up that well, either like they've got no proof on this and they're doing the same thing to him that they did too. Cavenaugh which is silly. There seems to be a little more evidence that the Saudis did this, then that cabinet did anything. President Trump had quite a day yesterday. He called he called story Daniels horseface in tweet. Okay, that's helpful. Which is not helpful and not advisable, and he won that whole thing. Just can't just leave it alone. You one he has last freaking. He cannot make it as and add some sort of exclamation point there and it. It's not helpful. But you know, it's very Trump Esq. It's what he likes to do. And so I don't know that anybody can tell him not to do it if they, if they can. He doesn't listen to them and maybe they don't even dare say anything to him. But as far as what he's doing with his policies, he's helped bring the United States back to the number one most competitive nation in the world. For the first time, we're the number one most competitive nation economically in the world again, first time since two thousand eight. Whoa. Whoa. What happened in two thousand eight. Let's see the. The economy went to hell in a hand basket and the great recession kicked into gear. And a Mark says was elected president Marxist? Yes. For the next eight years. Yep. Wow. Congrats to us being competitive again. So United States followed by Singapore, which I think they've been number one for a long time, Germany, Switzerland and Japan. All five countries scores rose, twenty seventeen with the US notching. The second biggest gain after Japan. Yeah, we haven't had the top spot since the financial crisis kicked in since we elected a Marxist. Yeah, but of course, as they want to do. Because this comes from. This comes from the World Economic Forum. They also threw in some criticism of the United States because of our social policies more. The only industrialized world only industrialized country in the world not have free healthcare care about people just don't care about people and so that our score down a little bit. I mean, socially speaking, the United States is completely backward because we don't. We don't even have social services for everybody hate our people. We hate them. We, we hate people where people people who hate people. And that doesn't make us the luckiest people in the world quite the opposite. So we got, we had to get slapped on one hand while they complimented us on the other. Because you can't just say the United States is the most competitive nation earth leave it at that you gotta take some shots at him. I mean, it's. It is of course the World Economic Forum not just gonna leave it at that triple eight, nine hundred thirty three ninety three speaking of the Saudis on somewhat of a happier note. In fact, quite a bit happier. Note they think is Saudi prince was the missed mystery buyer of a Leonardo Davinci painting that went for four hundred fifty million dollars. I think we have a picture of this. This is a photo or a painting that Leonardo Davinci did of Jesus and is there you see it in the frame and he's. You can't see it from this shot, but he's holding a transparent world in one hand Christopher or what kind of a crystal ball kind of thing. And then just holding up his two fingers with his other hand. And then you see his long flowing curly hair at the end. I didn't realize that Jesus had a curling iron. But apparently he curled his hair quite nicely. Well, that's not in the bible. It's in the Apocrypha. But yeah, it's something. Yeah. Okay, curling iron among the twelve. That's an interesting thing tting of Jesus, but it went for four hundred fifty million dollars. Oh, that's what I'm blowing my lottery winnings on that right there. That right there. Oh yes. So you'll buy it from the Saudi prince who purchased it and by the way, what does the Saudi prince the Muslim? Well, I guess it would be a profit to him right. Jesus would be he could have a painting of the prophet Jesus his mind. That's a lot of case to be dropping painting of a prophet. I'm sorry. And the name of it is savior of the world. And so it's interesting, so that is world. That's not a crystal world thought Jesus was fortune telling. I didn't know what was going on in that painting. Okay. All right. Plus there's another auction going on now this I'm bidding on. This is great. This I'm blowing my lottery. I five hundred thousand dollars. Both. Yeah, you right. You win mega millions. You can have Jesus with the curly hair crystal painting. Yes. And and the moon rock all, yeah, twelve pound chunk of moon rock. Now they say that most of these are the size of pebbles or maybe as big as a golf ball. But these one of these sections of this rock because it's broken into six different sections. But one of the sections, six pounds by itself. And altogether it's twelve pounds, and it's being auctioned off right now they call it the moon puzzle. The heaviest piece, six pounds, and it can be yours at auction this weekend for just five hundred thousand dollars. Now, how do they know that this came from the moon. That's what I wanna know. It doesn't say anywhere that how they figure this out now. Wait, didn't. We recently have a story that somebody, I don't know, was it one of the first missions to the moon? One of the astronauts brought back some moon rocks and ended up with like a friend's daughter, right? Then it held onto it all these years familiar? Yeah. And maybe they're just like, you know what? I know none that stop was the that was a meteorite in Michigan. Okay. At the farm Martin. But this this is a twelve pound chunk of the moon. That was actually that was blasted off of the moon. This wasn't brought back by astronauts. Oh, this all this came to earth thousands of years ago because something smashed into the moon and dislodge these pieces and they flew to the earth. Dislodged and then shot to the earth, and then it came through our atmosphere. And that's why the exterior of these rocks is completely toasted. So maybe that's why they know that came from the moon. Yeah, it is kind of cool. It's really cool. In fact, that's why it's five hundred thousand dollars because who would want to have this. So it's so so let me just say here and the online bidding runs through to actually tomorrow tomorrow. So the online bidding runs through Thursday. So in other words, you win the mega millions thing that's not till Friday win Powerball tonight. Well, you spend it knowing that you're gonna win it. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So just go ahead and put it on the credit card, the moon rock purchase, you're going to win the lottery matter. Pay it off in a month to be like a five dollar purchase for you. If you win the lottery and think of cashback rewards, you're going to get on a half a million dollar purchase of moon rock. It's pretty cool though. I would love to have that. I would too. That's awesome. And you get six pieces. You could give them as gifts. Right? No, no. I'm not giving anybody gift of moon rock. No, maybe once I'm dead, Aleve it to my kids, but not until then triple eight. Nine hundred thirty three ninety three. Also speaking of the moon. Are you aware that moons can have moons now ours doesn't. That's we have a boring moon, but stars are orbited by planets, of course, which are orbited by moons. But what comes next more moons according to a new analysis. The moon can have a moon and they're called moon. Moons would stop. You're making that up. Nope, that's that's. That's what they've decided. So moons of moons are called moons. Yeah. Dick Yetlis. What's your source for that? June Ecole Meyer at Carnegie observatories in Pasadena, California, and Sean Raymond of the university of Bordeaux, France calculated whether a moon orbiting a planet could have a moon of its own. A moon of a moon has no formal name perhaps because they've never spotted one, but both sub moon and moon moon have been suggested. So sub moon sub moan would be better than moon moon is the same people that took away Pluto's standing as a planet. I don't care what they say moon moons. I see. And I don't care what they say about Pluto a planet. It's never changed. It's always a planet. It's it remains a planet in my heart touching. Yeah. Yeah, it's still a planet moon moon. You can't just demote a planet like that. No, you can't just willy nilly decide, okay. After all of these years, you're not a planet anymore. And the thing that sucks is not only the fact they took away the planetary status of Pluto, but then then they added insult to injury and they said, and now you're known as Pluto, lead, shut up flu toy. That's what they call it. Now, Pluto lead. That's the that's the actual name of it. Stupid. I'm gonna. I'm gonna prove it to you. I don't think I've ever heard too as Pluto he'd ever heard that. Yeah, yeah. Pluto is ice door or ice dwarf. Oh my gosh. Oh, so you get to choose Pluto or ice dwarf, trans Neptune, Ian dwarf planet, a body orbiting beyond Neptune that is massive enough to be rounded in shape toyed. That's what it's called now. That's not. They're not talking about Pluto. They've changed it to Pluto, then it's called. It goes by Puto. Now trust me on this. I don't because you're wrong on that. If it's a planet beyond if it's a small planet like dwarf planet beyond Neptune, that's not talking about Pluto, right? The hair I ever weighed just because that's what rob whispered in your ear. The international astronauts this from two thousand eight astronomical union has decided on the term, Pluto it as a name for dwarf planets, like Pluto, like Pluto, like right now. Okay. Well, they, they named it. They named all these other ones because they demoted Pluto, you're wrong. Just admit it. Also, Jeff Bezos has predicted that we will have one trillion. Human beings in the solar system is scattered throughout the solar system one day, and he laid out how the rocket company he owns plans to help humanity get there. So I won't be alive to see the fulfillment of that long-term mission. You think we're starting to bump up against the absolute true fact that earth is finite. So his company blue origins aim is to lower the cost of access to space, and he's going to spend a little more than a billion dollars next year to support blue origin, the dynamism that I've seen over the last twenty years in the internet where incredible things have happened in really short periods of time. We need thousands of companies. We need the same dynamism in space that we've seen online over the last twenty years, and we can do that. I'd like to see that happen to, but there's no way that a trillion people are gonna live off of this planet. I don't know. I live here. Ask me. No, not. It's not going to happen and what you're gonna call an is Mars or the moon or whatever. And people are actually going to live there fulltime. No. I just don't believe that trillion people spread throughout the solar system, one trillion, but what's the timetable on that? He doesn't give one, but he says he won't be alive when it happened. Yeah. Yeah. And so I don't know one hundred years, two hundred years. I still don't see that happening. One trillion people living on colonies other than earth. No way I don't. I don't think so. How many people live on earth right now? Seven billion. Yeah. See. Yeah, that's a long way to go a long way to go triple eight, nine hundred thirty three ninety three. You're looking for real estate on this planet and especially in this country, we can definitely help you with real estate agents. I trust. Glenn started this company with Tanya and they did this because they had a really bad experience with a realtor. I'm sure tried hard, but and was a nice person just couldn't sell their house though, which is sort of the important part of realty actually. And so they lost a lot of money on it, and it took a lot of time couple years. And so they did some research and they started to find out what makes a really good realtor and they, they came up with the fact that you need to be full-time. You have to, you have to really be committed to your job. You can't have just your wife's nephew dabbles in it from time to time, and they'll sell your house. Great. Real estate agents know what they have to do. They have to know about curb appeal, the landscaping, what is that need to look like? The trim of your house? What kind of paint? What color of the paint is in style right now, because I impress are really important when you're selling a house, they have to know about professionally staging, your house in the pictures that go up on the internet, have to be appealing enough to get people to come to your home in person. They have to know win the list and for how much all of these things you'll find with real estate agents. I trust we've got over twelve hundred of the top agents in America working to earn your trust. It's real estate agents. I trust dot com. Real estate agents. I trust dot com. Three. More good news Democrats win the house. What do we have coming up. They want to do an internet Bill of rights. They went back the majority. This'll be great. So Google Facebook and other on-line companies can expect greater scrutiny and possibly maybe some legislation from a democratic led congress Representative row Khanna who's California district is home to companies like apple and Intel said that episodes like the league of Facebook users, data to Cambridge Letica last year's breach of consumer information by equifax, head amounted to a up call, the rules are needed. We need some rules. Now we can't just have a free internet that can't happen anymore. And then we're, obviously you're going to need to tax these companies. You're gonna have to pay an internet tax for the first time in his last year or two. We're having question a sense of tech utopianism and realize the techs tech is a moral that can be used for extrordinary means, but it can also be exploited Khanna said social media, and internet companies have drawn the scrutiny in the US and the European Union over the way they handle users data as well as their role in the spread of disinformation to influence the twenty sixteen US presidential election. I like what Facebook is doing this election cycle. They're going to weed out misinformation. Thank you. That's what I like. Because I trust Facebook to decide what is misinformation don't don't don't have me figure this stuff out on my own. Right. I don't. I can't. No, I'm too stupid. I need really smart people like the people at Facebook to figure out what is misinformation, what isn't. I have total confidence that they won't just view differing opinions from. There's as misinformation. They'd never do that. And you know what? It never do that when Facebook fails to spoon feed me the maybe the government plan can internet Bill of rights hoping. Yeah, yeah. So drafted at ten point program, he calls an internet Bill of rights. You said he's hopeful of action in the first one hundred days of the next congress. I do think they can do some simple things right away such as a stab, wishing the right to be notified. If your data is breached within a reasonable time period, that wouldn't be bad. Okay. If you if they have to notify us that there's been a breach, I think that makes sense. But they're also trying to figure out whether or not Amazon, Facebook, Google, and others are new monopolies here. They need to break up and we're going to have this on stuns Cortez's desk to sign immediately, right? Yes, right after she's inaugurated. Because obviously she thinks she's going to be inaugurated and she thinks she's going to be able to sign bills into law because she said day one, she was doing that. Ration- she was going to start citing bills, don't mess with her. She's got an agenda here. So. Also on the shortlist of things that they're going to do if they get back the house. All right, cool. Consumers being able to learn who has access to their data should be easy for you to figure out what Facebook knows about you and who they share that information with so far. I'm not against that. About the monopoly thing democrat. And you get that far. But he also said, what I think is critical is that congress takes action. It's not fair in some sense to blame thirty, something entrepreneurs for the failure to protect privacy. When congress has been derelict the real culprit is the United States Congress, which hasn't passed those laws. There's going to be an appetite among Democrats to do something he said, and there there in lies the problem. They always wanted to do something. They just don't care if it's the right thing, but we're going to do something something Silicon Valley recognizes the need for this legislation. He said, public trust is their largest asset. So the thoughtful leaders there understand that public trust shouldn't be squandered and that they need to answer and reflect about the abuses of these platforms. Okay. Tell you what? Let's balance the freaking budget. Then we can worry about doing something to the internet. They're never going to do that because balancing the budget will cost them programs that they love and that they control. And so they're never going to do that. What they're going to do instead is are things like this, hey, let's let's talk about how evil. Facebook and Google are and how we need to break up those companies because their monopolies member when they tried to do that to Microsoft, how that workout. That's what happens when you stop donating to party Microsoft as you learned in the late nineties as they learned. Yeah, so that's great. No, this is good. This is going to work out. So I really beautifully really well more government control, triple eight, nine hundred thirty three ninety three. There was a near collision of airliners in San Francisco last year, just a few feet from becoming the worst crash in aviation history. Oh yeah. This is. Do we have the video of that? Yeah, so it's a runway. All the planes are lined up on the tarmac in San Francisco, Canadian airlines playing there. No one onto it right. Up there. Canada directly over. Fifty nine to one Canada flew directly over us. Cow, so so so he almost landed on the wrong runway would have just landed on a series of plane. There were like three or four of them, like, I think it was like a thousand people would have been affected sixty feet from the ground. They said, well, how tos an airplane, I think I think it would have been even closer to the airplanes. I think it was sixty feet from the ground. It was just a few feet from each of the planes. Unbelievable. Well, that's about this. Now they release the tape. They closed up the investigation stuff. Wow, Air Canada, khanate Canadians, man. We got more playing related stuff. We gotta get to this equally fascinating. So make you wanna fly really soon here we go triple eight, nine hundred thirty three ninety. Three more Packer least coming up. Nine hundred thirty three ninety three Pat unleashed on Twitter. Steve Madera, sqi tweets, political, getting the planetary hall of fame. Before it gets the Ruckle. The foreigner fund followed you to mornings pan, make you feel really sad, really sad, Charles unmitigated. Gall says, look up moon moon in urban dictionary. Could describe Jeffey really? Yeah. Yeah. So I looked at up. It's a lot of definitions here. Internet mean, I don't know too. I think you're referring to because a lot of people are saying this definition number three Mon Mon is used to describe someone that is utterly stupid. Yes, that's what they. Okay. So actually is a an urban, I guess a thing. Yeah, I've never heard of it so. So it's not just a space term, I guess not for Michael Pluto? Still identifies as a planet. Sure. Should should good does, and I thought what people identified or things identified that we have to go with? Yes, respect them Bill down possioble Beto is Napoleon dynamite? Pretending to be Pedro. Yes, very good. That a lot. And from sabes eighty four. This was a visual here picture of that fat lump, Michael Moore. Says one one thousand twenty four th of Jeffries wait. That is heavy. Poor Jeffey. He just never stopped it. Never. It never stopped. Don't put poor in front of Jeffey. No, no. He deserves everything. He gets Mon Mon any loves it loves it. He does. Yeah, she loves any thrives. He thrives on the attention. You does. So most moons do. That's right. All right, triple eight. Nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three Daryl in Connecticut, higher on the blaze. Morning. Before we get to what I called about. Another band that hasn't has never been considered for the hall of fame is Duran Duran one hundred million records, so I feel you're paying very deserving. Your big Durant? Yeah, I am. I am too. They definitely belong. Yeah, I was calling about the. Davinci painting into you? Probably know that Muhammed never been portrayed or pictured in Islam. Well, as far as I know, I don't think things have changed, but I believe that's the case with anything that. Is considered living in Islamic forbidden to depict it. You know, as a painting or art or whatever. And I think because a lot of the members of the Saudi Royal family seem to be not practicing believers that I believe I read somewhere that this was actually bought for a privates, Saudi museum really. And so I just want to let you guys know that probably the reason why. Okay. All right. Thanks, Gerald. Yeah, it's kind of interesting because four hundred fifty million highest price ever paid for a painting and for Saudi prince to buy a painting of Jesus and just seems interesting unusual. Certainly, I wonder if it's the same Saadi prints that had the Saudi journalist murdered. The Turkish consulate. I'd I don't know that though. I don't know that for that. Yep. I look, I'm not. I don't wanna go off on a tangent here, which I'm so adept at doing here. But there's some connection with living that pastor go and Turkey at the same time that this was happening. I don't know if if we agreed to really look into this and investigate it and hold Saudi Arabia's feet to the fire on this for Turkey, if they let him go. I just there's some weird coincidence there. I think there's always something going on and there's always something going on. We don't know about. And I think when we, you know, at some point in the future. Maybe on the other side of this life. We're, we're gonna find out some amazing things were going on that we had no idea. We have no idea how deep all this stuff goes. I'm sure let's go to Tony in Texas, hey, Tony year on the blaze. Welcome to the mornings usually add anything that's annoying. Toyed in the same category hemorrhoids and Jesse. Oh, it. The morning show pattern, letter story. That's a good observation, Tony, really? Good observation. Yeah. Yeah. Gotta start referring to jiffy lube now. Seen just never ends. It just never ends for listening right now and he loves it night loves it. He loves it as he does. Absolutely. No look, first of all, first of all, triple eight, nine hundred thirty three eighty three. We were telling you about the the near. Accident. Maybe the worst aviation accident in history that was narrowly avoided when that Canadian airplane added to pull up, and there was a whole line of airplanes that almost ran into, but fortunately didn't. Also a Belgian air force mechanic servicing a war plane at a base in the south of Belgium. Accidentally opened fire and destroyed another F16. jet fighter. On the tarmac. In the airbase incident. A second multimillion dollar US built warplane was damaged and two mechanics were treated for hearing loss caused by the blast. The Belgian armed forces said in a statement. So the the mechanic want accidentally opened fire just hanging out in the cockpit, just pretending he's playing up there and all of a sudden opening fire on the whole, a little dusting in the cockpit, and I hit the run button. When that happens that wow. It's more news about planes the air force lost several advanced aft twenty two stealth fighters that were damaged or destroyed during the hurricane that level Tyndall air force base in Florida last week, you don't even think of military bases in the middle of these things and what could happen there. Air force sources said seventeen, f. twenty two's. One of the military's most advanced stealth fighter jets were unable to fly away to avoid the category four storm and they were damaged in their hangars at the base and the, I guess those hangers just not built to withstand major hurricanes if you have a base in Florida and you have a hanger for planes. Why would you make it strong enough to withstand a hurricane? That is still way Oregon's gonna hit Florida completely safe? Why would you make it hurricane proof? Why. You wouldn't this so they didn't government. So stupid finds new ways. I mean, if you're in Iowa, you don't have to make it hurricane proof, maybe tornado proof. I don't know, but you don't. If you're in Florida, there's a good chance you're going to get a hurricane or sometimes the jets that are on the frontline of right fighting China. The good thing is the only cost hundreds of millions of dollars each though. That's the good thing. So don't even worry about it. It's not that big. Maybe Beto get his ten dollar Beryl of tax added there, and we can, you know. Pay for. I don't know hanger that can withstand or maybe maybe we put the fighter jets that are going to be involved in a war against China inland could Krief I crazy crazy sick. Most of the stay behind aircraft including twenty twos, q. f. sixteen target drones and m you two aircraft trainers, sustained some damage, and several were destroyed. When hurricane Michael came ashore, wow. View of the f. twenty two were undamaged. Despite having five days to assess the damage air force wouldn't say how many of its frontline fighters were deputies. Not only did they have five days to assess the damage. How many days in advance did we know the hurricane was coming to shore to at least two or three. I know this was fast-developing hurricane, but I don't know if the hangers aren't strong enough to withstand the hurricane, a move, the plane somewhere. How do you move a plane? It's not like you can just fly it somewhere. No, that's the whole point. Could maybe done that you really good so they didn't? I swear. I mean. Eighteen. Jeffy it was commanding, apparently that's what air force base moon moon. Okay. So defensive, Terry, Jim Mattis said that the airbase took significant damage. Many of the aircraft were able to fly out, but others that were there took damage, how weird is that? So they weren't all able to fly out why I have enough gas or something, you know aircraft were able to fly out, but others. Were there took Davidge in some cases. Part of that sentence just doesn't make sense. Like why weren't they all able to fly out and why were they still there to take damage an initial review by the air force indicates that it looks like all the planes fixable. We'll know after we get them out of the hangers that are damaged and get more work done. Well, at least mechanic wasn't on duty, shooting up the joint total of fifty five f. twenty two's base there. Fifty five. Most were flown to safer locations before the storm. You. We don't do not have fifty five pilots. Not have. I say if we don't have enough pilots get the planes out of there, maybe we should train more pilots. I'm just thinking or in a u. haul or something you might wanna have at least as many pilots have planes. Again, maybe that's crazy. Jeffy was running the base. We do have the pictures from Belgium of what happened when that mechanic opened fire all I want to see that this that, oh, that's really destroy how I'm looking for a story with more details of was he just score screwing around on the cockpit. I don't see details. It was dusting. He's bit and he doesn't get too hard on one of the buttons look at that. So the blaze TV if you wanna check it out later, just sad, nice jets. They're gone because some guy was dusting. I guess she's while. The thing is though the just only cost about one hundred and fifty million each so don't even. We'll make more not not a big know we'll make more more for Belgium will make more for us. Yeah, they lost the one in Belgium. We lost a bunch of them in Florida hundred and fifty million. Now the cost. Of the f. twenty two, however. Could be as high as three hundred thirty million. Three hundred and thirty billion. Yeah, put it on our tab. So you know. Running it up anyway, damage all you want. We'll make more. That's all. It's like, lays potato chips, quack it go some Lay's potato chips. I didn't realize how hungry I was going to be at this time day happens speaking of the hurricane. It's being called one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the United States. And of course. Many of the cities along the Florida panhandle of been completely wiped out due to the devastation of hurricane. Michael residents are starting to return now to their towns, only defined that they've been completely ripped apart by the winds and the storm surge, and they got nothing left. So if you'd like to help out, go to mercuryone dot org slash hurricane relief eighteen, or you could just go to mercuryone dot org and just click on the hurricane link and and give or volunteer. If you can help out. It's going to mean they're going to need help for a long time in Florida. Just as they do in Houston. Houston last year was left it an absolute mess. And that cleanup continues and this cleanup in Florida is going to continue for a long time. So if you can help either through a donation of cash or your volunteerism, go to mercuryone dot org and see what you can do, triple eight, nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three Trevor Noah is somebody that we've really discussed because he's sucks as really, really bad. I thought John Stewart wasn't funny, and then along came, Trevor, Noah. Realized all whole new level of not funny, but this is kind of interesting because he's talking about Hillary Clinton and Hillary's defense of her husband and his affairs, and all of his, you know, sexual aggression and assaults on women and how she says her husband's missteps. Her husband's crimes are completely different than Cavanaugh will. Yeah, they're much worse and there's a lot more evidence that he did what he did. Yes. So from that standpoint, yeah, you're right. But Trevor, Noah actually took on Hillary for deflecting all the attention from her husband's affair. Here's what he had to sit in retrospect, do you think Bill should have resigned in the wake of them on the Lewinsky's Gan? Absolutely not. It was. Isn't an abusive power. Now, there are people who look at the incidents of the nineties and they say a president of the United States cannot have a consensual relationship with an intern, the power imbalances to adult. But let me ask you this, where's the investigation of the current incumbent? No, Hillary. I'm sorry, man, look, here's the thing. That's cool. Maybe it was different in the ninety s. But today I think we're all understanding that there's a massive power imbalance between an intern and the president of the United States, right? I mean, forget interna prison with anyone is a power imbalance, personal Bama texted me. Hey, Trevor you up. Mesh. And then he'd be like, actually, I just want to know if you're watching the game and I'll be like, oh yeah, I knew that. I knew that. Of course, I did. Yeah. And what's cool is Hillary trying to deflect make this about Trump like you're not in a position to be throwing stones at someone Hilary, especially when you literally sitting in a glass house. That's actually pretty good pretty good criticism of Hillary Clinton. Tired of the power balance thing and the power. It's either the power dynamic or the power balance. If you're an adult. An adult human being. You do have the capability to say no to the president of the United States. You could. It's possible. You could say no to anybody. But. Democrats act as though you can't. If somebody has power, you just can't say no to that person. When did that become a thing? When when did that happen? Has it always been case that if there's power involved on behalf of one of the persons involved, you just can't say no to that person. It's whatever the expedient argument of the day is for the left. That's exactly what it is that explains whatever dynamic is at play. Yeah, but she I mean she has nowhere to. She has nothing to talk about here and she should. It's amazing that she has the the unmitigated gall to talk about anybody's sexual abuse when she has the history, she does of destroying all the people who accused her husband amazing and it's not just putting her in a position to have to defend Bill. It's the she was an active participant in women's minds. Yes, absolutely. Triple eight, nine hundred thirty three ninety three this half hour of pet grand leashed brought to you by home tied. Block.

It's been published by the west leading economic, think tank, three European countries, Malta Monaco and Cyprus are among those nations flagged as operating high risk schemes that cell either residency or citizenship high risk. In a report released on Tuesday by the organization for economic cooperation and development. Okay. Also on the blacklist are a handful of Caribbean nations that pioneered the modern day methods for the marketing of citizenship. So you can buy citizenship from these countries pretty easily, and then they go up our barb Yuda the Bahamas Dominica Grenada, put your money there. Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis they've each, they've sold sixteen thousand passports since relaunching programs in two thousand six. So you can become like a citizen of Grenada for a price, and they'll just they'll sell you a passport, your money down there. You know, just because you wanna put it somewhere. Just put it in the other country. It's Ron nice tax laws down there. You just gotta put it in the other country that you're a citizen. I didn't know anything about their had no idea. I just wanted to be on spending money when I go and visit my other. I didn't know that country. What do I know about their assuming we're actually become a citizen of nice country. Do you know how nice it is in Grenada, it's really nice. Saved them for a reason, right? Save them from Jeffey, saved him Jeffy. He doesn't like to think about it though. He doesn't. He doesn't wanna think about moon moon, triple eight, nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three body in Texas. Your other place? I high. I just wanted to comment on your questioning why there were planes left on the air force base when hurricane was coming on the planes that are in the hangers are in maintenance hangars and they're usually torn down for long term maintenance, and they're waiting on parts and it's not like they could be thrown back together to drop a hat to be flown out. So there was a good reason why they were left there because they were unable to fly out. Can't hear me. Hello. So Bobby continue so body we missed. We missed part of that, say that again, we had our per second. Yeah, the planes that are in the hangars or maintenance hangars. Yeah, and they can't fly out. There was a good reason why they were left there. That would be an interesting part of the story to include, oh, by the way. Well, still left because they were under maintenance and they couldn't. I can't. I can't speak to the poorly written statements that people put out just wanted to forum you. So you know, bit more that is helpful and you're sure that that they were in maintenance and they couldn't fly. Sure. Because the only reason I was in the air force for eight years and the only reason why plane goes into a hangar for me. That's not like it's a garage. They get park there overnight there in there for maintenance. Okay. Let's just say, hypothetically, you're starting a country and you're building air force bases around in and then you you want to fix these planes. Eventually you're going to have planes that are going to need repair. Could they maybe repair those somewhere other than the coast. Are there places in the country where we have, you know, mechanic fix the plane, could park a plane to fix them. Bobby's gone, so she's not able to answer that. So we'll have to just guess say, no, there's no other place. On the coast of Florida. It has to be influenced. Don't understand just weird a high risk area, but as long as we're looking for mechanics to fix these planes, let's not look to Belgium because apparently the mechanics over there just blow up planes, right. So it'd be careful there pick all right, eight nine hundred thirty three ninety. He planned. A lot of makes sense though because you couldn't, you can you can't fly. There's no parking there in the first place. It's called planning ahead. You're gonna buy a lottery ticket or not. No, you're not always doing not by by one four you and I'll just call it my pet ticket. Eight hundred sixty eight million dollars Friday night and there's another one that's. Tonight's three forty, five.

Go Away Little Boy
"From workhouse connect in a j Benza. Vein. He liked to be walked on a leash and play really dirty kinky sex camps is the guy put the cop and the peacock network. Okay bitch. Hey, everybody AJ Benza here famous bitch. It is March fifteenth twenty nineteen half the month is over that means I should be half. Glad or maybe only. Half some shit. I'm about to take the rest of the month. I don't know. But I will tell you about my night last night before launching to the show. Tell me from crazy. I'm in my anger management crew. Right. And I like to grow veneer about eight nine weeks, and you sit around and circle Zoll guys last night, and you more or less tell people how you week win. If there are any incidents in your your week, and how you handle them, blah, blah, blah, coping cetera. It's gone along just fine. They didn't get to me yet. But the guy next me is doing his thing. He's going on and on it's going to long and no one quite understand it. So some of us jumped in and try to like elaborate on things that happens to kick things around and the guy who I never liked this guy. Let's call him. Perry. I never liked Perry. The first time I saw him. I could tell because I had that instinct that intuition that is curse. I could tell this guy. I don't like me who knows maybe Gogel made people do that. I don't fucking know. He didn't like me. So now eight weeks later and before he's going to begin to tell the rest of his story. He goes I like to say something and the two councils in the class, go trip. Go right ahead. Before I begin to talk about my week AJ. You are sniffling lot. I don't know if you have a cold or allergy, but I'm not going to continue until you blow your nose and less. I had no snot up my nose. I wasn't stuffy I do that. Sometimes maybe it is a fucking allergy thing. I don't know. But I didn't have any clarity on the Benadryl. I never had someone stop in mid story. And tell me the blow my nose. So now the old me would have walked over tipped over his chance. Maktum ahead and told stories all my friends, and I probably would have bought the guy drink and become friends. And that was the old me. The new me looked at him and said, I'm not gonna get up and blow my fucking nose to make you happy. Fuck yourself. I don't know who you think you are. But you're in the wrong subway train this happened to New York, you'd be dead finish your story. We'll talk about my nose next week. Now, of course to councils get oh agent. What are you feeling some fucking feeling man? I'm feeling anger. Well, no anger is not really feeling anger is something that happens after what you're feeling what you really feel anger is the second emotion. I said, I feel disrespected bam. This respect is not real guys failure can somebody tell this guy shouldn't tell me to blow my nose and middle of anger management costs class come on. They wouldn't tell them that. This went on for twenty minutes. Finally, the guy who didn't talk at all is really in the corner. Just waiting to talk about his week on. Get into what I feel about him because I can look at him and tell him what was wrong with them. But I'm not here to judge. He starts crying because he hasn't talked yet. I mean, this it was like a Seinfeld episode or Larry San Larry, David, whatever picked the reality show slash entertainment show. That's what it was like I wanted to leave. Beg me. Stay I stayed still pissed off. But then they called me today to cancels call me today to say, we're sorry. We didn't say to Perry that he shouldn't have said that that was rude. But we really wanted to tune into tap into your anger in which you feeling fair enough. I'll come back next line today. We'll do it again. And I'll find a word other than disrespect that I was feeling so I guess run the same page. But can you believe that? I mean, fuck whatever it's March. I tell you it's March. So one thing I wanted to add for all of you didn't listen to yesterday's yesterday. Patriot show about a touching tribute to my father. I wanted to even the score because I gave my mother one year and a half ago. I wanted to give them for dad because he died last week thirty four years ago. A lot of people liked it, very happy. Did it was a joy to to write and to and to tape and talk about, but I wanted to tell a number of you because a lot of you have similar stories about your dad or your mother, and I wanted to tell you guys something that I think I said this a long time ago, but I have a lot of new listeners, basically when I lost all that money and have to go back to long Alan and live in my sister's house, which is the house that was next door to the house wheel Lifton, and she we used to share a backyard together. And we grew grape Arbor in my yard and some forty five years later when I go back to my sister Rowsley south that great, Barbara, even though it was cut down the new people cut down the Arbor got rid of the great. Well, it still grows in different portions of the yard. And it's it's. Owing over these like thirty foot hedge pine trees. My sister has and the grapes are now in her yard. And she's now able to take the grapes off the vine and make grape jelly, and she's almost ready to make wine with the amount. She's getting probably next summit. But that's not the story the stories this what I went back to live with Rowsley and Rocco was only two years old, and I slept in one bed with him a single bed and my wife slept with Roxy and another single bed in the next room. And she was going to second grade and seeing the same I mean in the same classroom. I was and in nineteen sixty eight nine whatever it was. So one night I'm going to go Rocco, and I'm laying down and he's too. He doesn't know my my father. He has no stories about my grandfather. Maybe saw a picture, maybe. But he was too young to explain who grandpa the Manua met was so one night him I lay down, and I'm singing songs, whatever any goes. Daddy move over. What's matter? He says you're squishing the man home-ice question. What man now he's too? He said the man with the mustache and young kids. Look at you, very calm. Like, he wasn't laughing. I said this man with a moustache in the bed. Yes. He space in between us. Okay. Rob. Now. My father had a big mustache, my father looked like almost Sharieff or or how Lyndon from barring Miller with his mustache. The reason why I think my my son felt him on the bed some years before that my sister. And I and my father all had this form of ESP this extrasensory perception that the three of us had not my mother, and my sister Lorraine the three of us. It was insane. My sister there were times when my sister would be all eating dinner at her house, and all of a sudden, she turned and say daddy, the fish jumped out of the fish tank, and we had an Oscar fish, and it never jumped out at the time before and obviously be called an Oscar and one day, we're all eating Rosie just stopped serving food. It's daddy Oscars out of the fish tank. We all ran through the backyards into our house down the hall into the living into the fish tank with Oscar on the carpet flapping, he jumped at years before that in my childhood, my mother and father went to the movies me, the Raynham Rosalie ro home about an hour and a half into us being alone. Rowsley just goes daddy lost his wallet. What are you talking about? He lost his wallet. So my father mother come home, forty minutes later from a movie soon as they walk in Rowsley jumping daddy. Daddy. Where's your wallet? And he goes back poverty goes fuck is my won't what the foot he went back to the ADA somebody turned it. So my sister has this thing I had this thing. So few years ago before my sister. I had this daydream. I was awake. It was daytime I have this vision of my father laying on a bed the same bed. I ended up sleeping with Rocco laying on a bed and he's moving his hands in front of his face because he can't breathe. He's having trouble breathing. I don't know what it meant. But I knew I had to call my sister because we're tuned up together on caller at work. I said rump looking on seeing daddy he's laying on Jackie's bed. He's laying on his bed. Knee camp. Read these moving things off his face. What's going on in that room daddy camp breath? My sister goes last night the closet pole broke in the bedroom. I took off all the coats out of the closet. I laid them on the bed. I said get out leave work, go home and take the fucking coats off the bankas. Daddy suffocating. This is a gospel taupe, and she did it, and she's apologizing out loud side that him. Sorry. So Iraq told me smashing the man with the mustache, you think. I don't believe in. You think I think my son's crazy? No, no. There's another side for all you people who lost relatives or loved ones. Just know if you are lucky enough to have those stories happen to you. It makes you feel so much better about them not being around because you know, they're around. I just wanted to give you that little bit of story that bit of history because that part about my father's watch stopping exactly when he died apparently has happened over the people, especially people who believe in all sorts of numerology, which I don't know anything about. So I just wanted to add that, and I hope it makes you hope if you chose it gave me chills Christ. I have a few things to talk about today. Today's been crazy day, but I've been looking at the news, and you know, thousand things going on. I I could pick one thing into a whole show about one story, but the hallmark channel and Laurie Lachmann. Do I say, I say, Ron I think it's Lafon. I dunno. Hallmark channel obviously just gave her a pink slip and they pulled the plug on garage sale mysteries. Which I I've never watched. But I I understand it's popular. And now they're pulling her other series when calls the heart or they're putting on on ice for law. Put it that way. The prime time episode. I think it's going to air March seventeenth, I believe. Yeah. And the trying to come up with what they call creative solutions for her Abigail station character. And now that she's indicted in this big behind love operation varsity blues I loved I just keep thinking about the part lawsuit blues ca quarterbacks bang in the cheerleader on top of the washing machine. I think that's the right movie. Maybe that's the other either way. I love blues down put look how all the all these options. They say they're exploring saying, you know, yes, she's been indicted. But what I'm absolutely sure it's going to happen all options are being explored on how to take this already filmed episode and move forward bullshit. It's not trust me. She'll be out of it. And you watch even though even though the writing on the fifth and final season of fuller house hasn't started yet. I've heard the writers already know you may not want to write about auntie Becky as they were going gonna ride around or this year. You know, she's out. She's she basically just eat her career jussie smollet that his first name has become a verb productive career. He just is she just your career. But curiously it makes you wonder what will happen with shameless. Because of William H Macy's part. In this bribery, scandal or the upcoming show. He's on central park. I hope nothing comes of people shows because there's so many other actors and crew members who worked parred and need to need to get there. They need to see their work on the screen. It's not fair because somebody fucked up. But what happens, you know? When William H Macy participated, he was fully aware of what was going on. Sorry that he has a wife was fucking obnoxious and bitchy and controlling, but he no. And if you hit a transcript, he just kinda murmured cool when he was told of the idea and the amount of money, they were gonna give what gets me laughing is that. They gave fifteen thousand Felicity Huffman and fucking William H Macy because they're big stocks. Could you imagine how they how Laurie locked fields and the designer husband given half a mil I guess hallmark doesn't carry as much weight as desperate housewives or HBO? But that's a vast. That's a big discrepancy. Now, you know, look. Some people are very disappointed with hallmark feeling. They shouldn't have to cancel it. Hold back. The shows and fire the actors and crew over this. But to that I say, well, what did you say that about Weinstein and less Mon visit Kevin Spacey. Z sons Ari who are all fired or blackballed the second their alleged crimes came to light. No, you didn't on pretty sure. Most of you condemn them all before they were found guilty in a court of law. Many then everyone to quote a wall, but there were found guilty. So you can't be hypocritically here. A company has every right to protect its brand. I don't want them to but companies have every right to protect their brand and to disassociate themselves from somebody for moral ethical reasons before found guilty in a court of law, which was a separate thing. By the way, there is such things such a thing called morals clause. I've signed him. I didn't know I did sign him until the bosses e told me listen, you can't punch again face the nightclub that kind of violates the morals clause that moral squad. And they showed me where I signed. So those things exists and when you commit a felony. Yeah. That's no good. But the thing is you don't get to pick and choose based on whether you like this actors smile or their characters laugh or whether the sleazy guy, you don't like he should go to jealous. Not the way. It works companies got every right to sever ties. Whatever forget forget about what the public thinks. It's in the morals clause people for towns of doesn't have much morals or many morals. It is in the contract. It is in the it is in the fine print. Earlier in the week before. All this stuff broke set aside pot of show to talk about Richard Pryor. And I'll tell you why. Because just when just when you just when you forgot the vision of Richard Pryor being fucked by Marlon Brando or Richard pry banging Marvin Gaye along comes as ex wife, Jennifer to confirm that those things in fact, it happened. And I wanted to talk all about that. That's that's still use story. Whether you believe or not I believe because I let you ex-girlfriend, Michelle. Brando Marlins door told me an admitted to me that our dad fuck James Dean, and you know, she has done on good authority from her father. But there's so much more going on here. Part of what I love about. Richard Pryor is how or loved the Batum is how insanely honest he was and whether he would talking about. Basically how he would have welcomed this kind of conversation. He would have enjoyed this debate. And that's what his ex wife is saying that they'll fucking out. Don't worry about Richard being man. He would have brought this up on stage at the time. When the time was right. He would have met it head on. Are just too many people get offended by things the bottom line is. There was a time when Richard Pryor even spoke in front of a crowd a largely gay crowd. I think in San Francisco, and he just blurted out. He just blurted out to them. Yeah. I got my dick sucked. I'm one of you. All. And it it hurt. It hurt him that when he said that he didn't seem to get the kind of support. He thought he would. And once even get that support. I don't know whether it in believe him or they just couldn't picture, but they didn't they didn't believe I think what he was saying he went off on them. And it got really blow, and he was fucked isn't fucked out an N word. This n word that he went crazy. A lot of angry gay guys that didn't like being spoken to that way. But Richard didn't like not being accepted by the gate crowd. Having having already admitted any did that it was a weird night. It's out there on tape somewhere. It might even be on YouTube. But I doubt it it's out there somewhere because I saw it a while ago. And I know the reaction he expected he didn't get and it hurt him. So that's why I think you know, he would have he would have met this conversation on if he'd still been alive. He was basically saying to that crowd. Even though I had another man's member. In my mouth, you motherfuckers. Still don't accept me because some black. That's really where his anger went. It hurt her. And I was gonna go deeper into that story. But today has been a cavalcade of insane stories that I feel I gotta touch on for starters. Okay. For starters. I never thought I'd see a bigger beard than the ones we saw on duck dynasty. But here comes Rosero Dawson trying to take that title away as the biggest beard in the world. She announced today that she and the presidential candidate. Cory Booker are fishery dating there was that rumor known aroun-. I don't believe it. I think it's bullshit. I think this is Rosanna Dawson. And I think this is Cory Booker bringing along for the ride because it looks good for him. And I think it's her way of kind of taken one for the old liberal team. I think this is area Dawson making all Hollywood POWs think she may be the next first lady, and what a story that would be because Rosario was born to a sixteen year old mother a mother who when resort was five her mother decided to settle the family in an abandoned building in Manhattan's Lower East Side, all of us in New York. No this story they were squatters she and her husband. They renovated one of the apartments. They fixed the plumbing and the electric wiring for the building, and they stayed in his disgusting. Believe me back then the Lower East Side. You wouldn't have wanted a stray cat live in those buildings. There was heroin dealers all around junkies. Dine in the street, bad bad bad, and you know, resign. Dawson likes to say that that that whole lifestyle taught her valuable lesson it if you want something better, you've got to do it yourself, whatever it fucking movie stars talk that way, I just wanna laugh because we've already seen what people who with money and influence due to get something they want that's better like getting their kids to a better school we've already seen. So if really should've said that she spent a good portion of her of re youth shitting into a bucket. That's what her mother the squatter did for her. So I think this is all part of a ploy to make resign Dawson. Think about what this looks like even though Cory Booker has no shot. He's going to be up there in the primaries debating people, and if he gets the nomination shit can he be Trump? And if he does Dawson could be the next first lady and she'll finally be a hot black. I lay. Eighty because Michelle Obama was not I can't entertain that any more when you line up against all the other presidents wives of poor. She ranked the first three, of course, because what we worked with you. But you don't beat Milania and Jackie O is Jackie L. I gotta put Michelle tred can't move her up. And I don't I can't I could sneak up behind to overtake. Let's keep were three. And let's let it be happy. Rosario Dawson jumps into the fray in my mind. She's number one. Now car had married Trump. Then we got a winner. But that didn't happen. But I think that's where the going now. I have a horrible story to say today story that bothers me it hurts me say this. 'cause you know, how I feel about this, dude. But actually considering what I heard about him recently how he acted like you never heard of me. Maybe I'm not too said telling the story. So Mickey Rourke was on a movie set today in Hollywood on sound stage. And he was so fucking it. I've been told it was really embarrassing and said, I have it on good. This is not like a rumor from a friend. I know someone who was there and was involved in this movie. He came to the set fucked up did not know any of his lines at all he didn't even know what the film was basically about they had the remind him very low budget in b movie called legionnaires trail sounds like something you catch on a fucking airplane with bad air conditioning or on a cruise ship somewhere. Remember legionnaires disease? Fucked up was that. League Grenache trail, not really one you're to want to run out and see actually it's never going to be an fear. But you're not gonna wanna stream it. It's about a person who's a half Roman whose entrusted with the mission of crossing the snowy mountains are media swarming with party and patrols to seek help for slowly dying men. Now Mickey doesn't play this half Roman soldier. But he's in the movie with Lance Hendricks Hendrix. I don't know and byline we all know by laying when she's not acting. She she's yachting on all all sorts of yachts around the world. That's how she stayed alive. She's very good on her back. But for this film, a friend of mine told me, she memorized, all our lines and all the scene she had where with Mickey. Okay. And Mickey could not speak. He could hardly talk. And he knew none of his lines. So they have to call in a teleprompter operator and put Mickey's lines on screen now. This is done on television. All all the time pretty much. I had to beg e to get me on eventually, I even offered to pave my own fucking thing. They wouldn't do it. I said guys, I'm I'm two paragraphs into a long read of memorizing a paragraph for mysteries and scandals and somebody honks to fucking horn. And we gotta go again, you know, I'm three quarters through the opening of misery and a helicopter. Come gotta go again, put the fucking thing on screen. What does it cost two hundred dollars a day? I'll pay it. Then they finally got one about six months into the first season. Then I was a wiz. Because once you don't have to memorize your lines. You just have to know one to hit words, and you can walk without looking. It's great. You look like a fucking pro. But for a movie star it's only used when when movie stars have really long past. Like, let's say Jack Nicholson a few good men. I'm not sure even used one. But it certainly would have been offered. You know, we live in a world that has walls who's going to guard them, you Santiago, you know, that might have worked for Jack. But but for Mickey never heard of that. And you know, he just wasn't too long ago that he did the wrestler, and he was great knit, and Nikki I understood was not getting high anymore. But I'll tell you something. He was hiccuping allot, which I don't wanna get into that certain kind of thing kind of combination. I don't wanna say, but it's not good, right? And after an hour to that he eventually changed into street clothes and left six hours early. The crew was fucking adamant. I mean Mickey's the draw in the movie no one's going to see by lane. But something's up with one of Mickey's beloved, you hours died not too long ago. And if you've ever looked is Instagram page, which is down. Now, he said he was taken down about two and a half months ago one of the dogs died, and he really it broke his heart. He I've eaten dinner with him and his dog. I took my dog with him to ongo couple of clears what our dogs feeding on dogs fucking Neil key. But you know. Once that dog died Mickey taking my page down disappear for law. I think he might be coping with that deaths. Because he doesn't handle he doesn't handle death. Well, it doesn't handles tragedy. Well, he's a fragile guy. So I he was fuck up today. I hope with us last, but I'm never happy bringing stores like that with people I like and Meyer. But that's what happened today in Hollywood. You'll never see the movie, but if you have a checking out remember what happened make your show? Somebody else is the run around with while. I was with Mickey back in the day is in the news too. And that would be Naomi Campbell now reported in my star magazine column, which comes out. Think that'd be tomorrow or. Yeah. Probably moral. She's been banging the kid from one direction Liam Payne, right? He's twenty five Naomi's forty eight. Which means he's fifty and they started flirting like in December January she snuck into his Instagram page. That's the new thing the new things you don't spot someone across the room slide into that DM's. And then after they started flirting which was kind of public next thing in other at the British Academy of film and television arts awards and they've seen a couple more times. She never comments about her love life. But I do know that when she first started running around with the kid she didn't like his clothes. She felt like he looked like an asshole. What the way he was dressing. Forget about the fact that she's twice as age. She wanted them to wear better stuff, and he doesn't have the right pace because he's been he's been getting dressed by stylus forever. So she spent ten grand on new threads philan-. So we looked better next to her. Whenever they get packed. You know, and I guess you figure they're going to be out of few more times. And she doesn't wanna stand next to a guy who still wears, you know, still talk shirts, whatever the fuck, but she ten grand down and bought him some good shit. Hey, that's a great chick. That's also also on the touch on this Tom Arnold is bullshit. And again, he's telling another tantalizing y. That has to do with this college admission scandal couple of weeks ago, he put this on this on Twitter yesterday. But he said couplings ago, I got into it with for the tenth time with a hash to college cheating scandal dad at a big party. Basically, he went to Steve Tisch is seventieth birthday party at the Hollywood palladium and he went jaw jaw with mossy. Mo- Gini Laurie Lachlan's husband, the fashion designer who sells clothes for target. And you know, what I've heard those shirts. He sells for some reason. The cross dressers loved them. I heard I heard that he's made a fortune on shit that cross dresses where let's look into that. That's fascinating. Okay. Any apparently mossy mos- talking Tom, and he was basically saying shit about how agrees with Trump on some issues that people need to carry their weight. He's saying there are a lot of takers. And entitled people out there. Now, this is Tom just talking shit again because you always acting like he's on the spot Johnny on the spot. I'm not sure if that's true. But he did put it on Twitter and the papers picked it up. I don't know. But you know, it's kicking the answer though. The fact that like I said, you know, how do you think they feel that they and her husband paid a half a mil when they could have paid fifteen grand? It's unbelievable. But whatever happened to taking college administrators side and saying you don't wanna love this school. I I've always loved this school. I really love to spruce up the library, and like to give you a nice donation. What do you need? Can. I is there. Something all the computers up to ski. What can I do my husband, and I really wanted? 'cause next fall. If my daughter comes here, and we love her to come here. I'd like to feel proud something like that. Then you're half a million dollar check. Okay. That doesn't bother me. You wanna make the school better fine. Because then my kid can enjoy the better library down the road. But you just wanna lie about your kid being on the road team. Once you've never done shit with an or the fuck out of here. But I don't believe Tom. Because mossy MO is not a conservative. He may feel Trump's right on an issue or so, but mossy mo- Laurie Lachlan Felicity of been William H Macy on liberals. In fact, all the people rounded up so far are liberals. So once again, Tom Arnold is full of shit. I don't buy anything. He's saying as usual, and you know, some. Talk earlier. I don't want. I want to just go back to what I said about Cory Booker being that possible presidential candidate. And I don't not gonna throw politics down through give me one minute. He can't win. He's not gonna pass the primary as much as you guys are anybody out. There hates Trump hope could beat him in. Why forget Beto the fake Latino his biggest accomplishment is lost with all the Hollywood support. What issues are people going to run on to be Trump reparations fantasized the new green deal? What is it? What's going to be so important because I think all Trump's gotta do one point is go up and stand up and say on the only thing between you and the American voters becoming socialists. That's what I gotta do any wins. I mean, I know a lot of guys hate him. But cancel the Iran deal. Got us out of the fucking Paris accord, cut off funds universities that won't on a first amendment. There's a lot of things did that I'm really in favor of and then there are people think that Alex Andrea occasional quite is as soon as she's age might be might be a possibility to run for president this. Girl was making fashioned a year ago. And they still bomber was community organized. It would some panache style. But please Jesus Christ good luck handling all the keys to somebody. Who believes they can hang around till they're forty never get married. Doesn't want to have kids doesn't own a home. Basically doesn't have any experiences that make her understand how people who are conservative feel get it. But but again, what will Cory Booker or anybody push across infanticide is not a fifty percent issue Medicare for all is none of fifty percents. You reparations? No new green deal. No abolishing ice. No, anti-semitism open borders wealth tax, come on. And let me tell you some Joe Biden isn't going to endorse that agenda, and I think Biden is the only shot that they had to give Donald Trump run. I do because less when Trump beat Hillary. I sat there in the restaurant that drudge clean didn't own. But really made it his. His Smokehouse in Burbank, and I'm on the air doing a live show election night. And I got booed. I said, listen it's gonna get close but Trump's going to pull away at the end booed. I said let me take him. There is still too many people in this country. Who are Archie bunkers, and there are more Archie bunkers than there are meat heads. Meaning rob Reiner his his son-in-law. And I was right. And that's how Trump pulled it out. And I think in this capacity. There are more people that still love the last two hundred years of this country. Then they are ready to listen to Alexandra occasional call America garbage country. That's how I feel. Okay. I don't think that people are ready to just call it a day and go. Yeah. Let's give her a shot. And Lastly, I got a mention jussie smollet small small I watched him walking into court acting like fucking run things. You know, listen, some of the cast is supporting although I heard that not any of them wanted to sign a card for him. I heard some people in the hair and makeup the pun wanted nothing to do with this card. There's also a youtuber. I don't know why so many you to reserve black gay guys, and they talk all crazy. Let me spilled up tea. I don't know why why can't people just give you facts? Like I do. What are they gotta talk like that? For anyhow. I was listening to some crazy person on YouTube and somebody put it on the Facebook page some woman, I forget who she is her friend works in the makeup department, and she swearing up and down the marks on small. Let's face after the fake altercation was makeup. They put makeup on. And she said, they he shoved things in his cheeks to make them look smaller. I said come on. He went to a hospital. Don't you think the hospital will learn to pull the makeup office faces ridiculous? You got to be carefully stores. You believe let alone post, but don't believe him. It's insane. The most damning being about smollet is that he was willing to put two people in jail over his hopes man what he was informed by police that they had two suspects in custody. Discounts ready to testify against them when he found out the suspects. Whereas buddies that helped them pull off the stunt, suddenly he withdrew the offer to testify. It would have been great to cops may believe that if the consummate a fake lineup of bunch of white dudes wear red hats and call them suspects. I would love to seen who just pulled out of that line. They did not have been great. Empire empire the TV show. Everybody's nervous mall. Well, it's going to be taking listen em par starting out as an interesting show about a successful. Musician who finds out is gonna die. He's got to decide which one of his son should carry on his legacy. It's a great idea. It's very Shakespearian decent show. I love the first season Raji, be stolen and Terrence Howard was great. But to be honest after the first season it just went to shit. The breaking point was the was it the second. I of the second season they got cookie in a gorilla costume, and then they could Chris rock doing series acting as a tough guy in prison. Are you fucking kidding me? Chris rock being tough guy in prison. I couldn't stop laughing, and they only Campbell dating the youngest lion. Lucious lions youngest, son. She's terrible acting. And he's the worst of all lines that young kid empire was the kind of show that had the story lines of a really crazy and bizarre that it made you hang on for a while. But then they started stunt casting. And it's been just fucking ridiculous. And Finally, I missed Saturday Night Live. I don't know why my TV didn't record it. But I did catch clip on you to the Catholic church has a lot of balls for coming down on SNL. And especially Pete Davidson that skinny head about how little difference between the art Kelly story, and the Catholic church sex-abuse story, the fucking church put out a statement that went onto say the diocese strives every day to prevent sexual abuse by clergy from happening ever. Again. It concluded by calling the insensitively of writers producers in the cast of SNL, they call them alarming. Now, they're offended by sketches now. Now, they find it disgraceful. They're about forty or fifty years too late to be clutching their anal rosary beats said anal beads, but raise rose rubies. Probably know beats for a lot of cardinals pre. Let's face it. The church has tolerated this for fucking decades a century two. And now they're upset because somebody mentioned on TV listen, clean up your house. I replaced decades with centuries and maybe was spot on. I'm sorry. A decade did centuries. Take us look up ca Strada. Learn about the church buying young boys from poor families and cutting dick soft and keeping them singers for the pope. My message is live is this don't cave and do not apologize. They deserve those comments, and they deserve worse. Comments, churches, evil and Carney and no amount of financial political pressure should change should change people being able to openly condemn the ship behavior that Turks covered up for so long, destroying so many lives. Get out of you. Never apologize for the truth. Never speak the truth in it'll set you free sound trite. But it's so goddamn true. And like I said the day let's pull down temples, even if the temple falls down on top of us and finally story. I am most happy about all. I predicted this thrill the parents of eleven year old Desmond, Nepal as the so. Call drag hit known as Desmond is amazing. They've been investigated by thority just like we hoped for alleged child abuse. Okay. This little fucking kid dressed in drag dancing and his sexually suggested matter onstage at New York City gay bar called three dollar Bill. We member it how he was trotted out and pranced around took off his jacket. Men are howling in the audience. Michael Strahan's downsizing, the next greatest. It was discuss thing. Disgusting. And now this mothers crying the blues since the incident. Authorities have been asked by concerned citizens that will be us to investigate the family for abuse. So child protective services investigated, the family, the New York City administration of child services did the New York police department did child advocacy center the center for missing and exploited children, the department of labor the district attorney's office and these people don't fuck around. They make your life. Hell this is the end. This is only the. Beginning C, c for only yelling I do on this show should is getting done. Cape Bryan singer done. Louis Vitton stopped selling those t shirts they designed with Michael Jackson on the Michael Jackson's beat dazzled feet on the front. They're coming off the shelves. Drake womb? Sing the song. The Michael Jackson estate gave him in concert. You want done on Kelly's going away. Jussie sweats going down. Desmond is amazing. They're all going down. And the boy's mother said do you have claim the abuse allegations? Are unfounded bullshit bullshit. They're not unfounded at all. We've been under a microscope since early December. I never thought it'd have to breach my own privacy and confidentiality to provide proof that has been demanded of us out of malice. Shit head. We had unannounced visits in our home and all hours. Yeah. That's day. Go to the school to lady our family was probed. Listen, your son's going to be pro one day keep pressing him like that we were proud more intensely than any of the case before all Ella Gatien's are in founded in addition, we were investigated by the MVP, and she names all the offices. No abuse or maltreatment was found no regulations for child performance were broken. No legal activity has occurred. Yeah. But you're fucking up your kid lady. I'm AJ Benza. And that was Fame's bitch.
Top 5 Best and Worst of the MCU - Movie Podcast
"The world is currently in chaos. But there's something we can always rely on arguing with our dumb friends about marble movies dumb. I was talking about you. I Like I like DC smart today. We're discussing which movies and the almost twenty five film franchise are the best in. Which Mickey Rourke that. What does that mean? What is you ain't get an Oscar late in life? Yeah Well House Phoenix rising that beautiful man or woman. Mickey Rourke I can't tell sometimes he couldn't help it. He was a boxer. A No. It's just like when he wears like juicy pants they can't help it. He's a boxer. This week's episode of film houses. It's possible by our sponsors shudder. The premium streaming video service super serving members with the best selection in Genre entertainment covering horror thrillers and the supernatural and. Mac Weldon the most comfortable underwear socks. Shirts undershirts hoodies and sweatpants. And more that you will ever wear will hear more from them later in the show. Today's episode is a Pretty Light Fund. One it's not topical in the news but I thought it would be just a fun time and a fun watch. I'm joined today by Ryan. Adam wounds and James High Ak Mickey Rourke Number One fan. I would say that number to compete for the three. I said before one of my greatest regrets is not buying that signed copy of Nessler to someone else by Mickey Rourke that I found music that one time that would have been cool for them. I was like Oh what do I need a signed? Wait a minute. I should've exactly bought a sign of Rick or whatever yeah so if you're someone right now. That is practising social distancing. You've got a lot of free time on your hands so why not go back and rewatch all the marvel movies? Mickey rourke movies also fly nine and a half weeks Copa Greenwood village. And I know Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. Everyone has very strong opinions on both. Mickey Rourke and marble movies clearly established. I think I am not to not to cut you off there but I think that only lane people have strong opinions on the more I think. Kill across across the Taiwan. I'm talking generally. We're all pretty lane and we think about things too much. I don't know I would say most people like them all. Most people think they're great and go. Oh cool new marvel movie. I think most people actually have a strong opinion in the earliest ones that they really like really don't like like we're about to talk about the people. Maybe we talked to about it. I think most people do not care as evidenced by most of the box offices of all of these including van. Oh when I thought where remarkable that are outside the the entertainment industry. I'll be like oh I'm going at twelve O one. Am to go see aunt man three and they're like oh. I didn't even know that was coming out. Maybe I'll see it and I'm like what I'm the guy who's driving by those online and going you already saw. It was called iron man and then peel out and I run into a telephone. I found it in tomorrow. I'm that cool guy where Dumbledore your brand of Things that you like doesn't match with my brand of things that I like. We should argue the more. I'll say this a lot of us did line pretty close in what we consider to be our top five best top worst except for one one. Rebel heart yeah. That's right right dead pool man. I don't play by the rules which I figured we talked about the best. I Save Save the worst notice. It's top five and I'm already seeing a six under Ryan's Bet I don't play by the rules man. I'm like deadpool. Wow Man can. Can we go back in time to twenty fifteen first? Deadpool came out never on social media is like I did pull to break the rules. I'm snarky and I talked to God. Did any of you have a tough choice to kill your darling? Sort of thing I I did I. I really wanted to put infinity war on my top. Six but I was like iron man. Three was so hilarious. I couldn't get up there a lot of these so I wasn't necessarily looking at other people's when it was going in but because we were all adding to the same dock and there are some parts glance over at someone's Ryan's and I here your reasoning. Which will be wrong. Well let's start with James. Adamant I because ours are all fairly close circle certain and then we'll mix up with right couple curve. Sales also mine isn't exactly the top five. It's like the top two where a lot of those movies sort of morph into one is And then it builds up to one or two other movies. Yeah and I've said this so many times when people were very tired hearing it. But it's not a bad thing. I'm also when I see things are best or worst. Whatever it's not being like I hate it but a lot of these movies are like watching television. It's like watching a really expensive episode. Game of thrones of you know but it's it's on that level. I hated ironman too. I can say that. Sorry all right. That's not brave. Just Jack Armand's who gets better the more you watch it now that you have all these other games we can just jump right into it but our man to would be better if they just called it avengers Prequel point five. Yeah right here at any yeah vendors. Start with my with my fifth and try. Which was Captain America's civil war? Your I hate. You can't be number one third entry James had it is his second century. Us Now I didn't place US higher just because I felt like there was some that superseded it but I do think it's in terms of the The the sort of team big team up movies. It's one of the best ones right. I want to hear why Ryan and put it on his list. Include it all all right so when I'm looking at my favorite moral movies you'll see a theme in mind. I like the funny ones. Okay I like the I'm not A. I don't really care about marvel movies but if I go I wanna I wanNA laugh. All of mine are funny. Hold on wait. Doesn't civil war. Have Garry shandling in it garrison. Piece little war the civil war but they go out of their way to make you know this. Seventies kind of political thriller. You know kind of movie the roost others is really well made. But it's just there's you know it's it's more serious than the others and I do think that the end is pretty awesome The last fight and stuff top five awesome. Yeah actually no. I was thinking of winter soldier when I go but still You know this is kind of just snowballing off when our soldiers is pretty similar. But I didn't laugh laugh. That's the main thing cooks. That was my thing. 'cause I know I loved winter soldier to but for me the it did seem like Internal everything's air all everyone's fighting on the inside Hydros all bad like they're they're all along and stuff and I was like Some of that stuff is tiring the more I watch it again and again when you my big thing might be. Criticism of most marvel. Movies is that their strategy is take a hero control c control V invert colors. That's your bad guy. So that's one of the things I love about civil war is. It's not at all like yeah. It's friends fighting friends. Friends findings friends but visually to just from a pure visual standpoint. It's it's Black Panther captain. America Falcon Iron Man. All of these very different appearing characters. Though onscreen at a it feels very very different. You know it also. Of course the fight scene at the airport is like Holy Shit like that's when you realize the potential of what we've been waiting for of all of these movies you're like Oh my God and then for me also I came off Really Disappointing Atman. Because I thought that Paul ant man's on one of my worst movie I like yes. I didn't think man was funny. I thought Paul Rudd was underutilized. Al Qaeda you don't get humor or comedy out of big things becoming small small things becoming big. It's always funny. It never gets old continue. Well I was getting his ass Ryan's kind of a movie buff so I don't know if he has the script in his head and he seen a different version of ant man I love it. It looks like baby driver and it doesn't look like it was shot and then we bring it on. I felt like the limited time that you actually see and interact with ant man and civil war. They did him more justice to having Paul Rudd. Having Fun and the character doing fun stuff than the movie but I can see that I I will say if you were to ask me like top five. Best scenes of any marvel movie. I would put the civil war fight. Scene Y is one of the most memorable for sure what you're saying but overall took awhile to get there. I didn't laugh I I I'm okay with you. Yeah that's fine criticism. That's like you. You did. Well it's fun now. He's fairly brothers. Yeah I do like to that the so if I would ask you Ryan. What's a better movie age of Altron or civil war civil war age all its top bottom fog but there's no civil war Asia voltron think about it all Geez? This is just time as a flat circle bombing then as individual as actually if you because of the way these things play out if you actually were to cut age of all war into one movie be pretty good. It's got some fallout in their of like. Hey guys screwed up. Segovia you let that robot like almost blow up the planet with meteor. I don't know what his plan was. That is true. There is cool stuff at age altron Altron actually him becoming alternatives. Pretty Cool James spader no. I'm not trying to defend age of alternate. I'm just saying much like to at least argument. Amanda if I am Man Sucks but man. He's great and civil war. Age of ultrasound sucks but man that plot point and civil wars pretty cool how. It's in a dark time line now because like because all the stuff that preceded trae just. I just want to blow your mind blew. It is an interesting thing about this. When you get to. The point of having twenty five movies is that you can have a character. That's worse in their own movie than they are in other movies for. I think it's definitely a testament to well. It's cool. They have a movie and it's great that it made a billion dollars. Maybe it wasn't like maybe it wasn't necessary. I mean that's how I feel a lot about my word. I think my worst list is a lot of these characters that I actually genuinely enjoy. But that I don't think are good in their own movie. I think their own movies. The worst case of them took them a couple of movies to get to a good Solo film really and Another thing for me with civil war is that it always feels to me like more of an vendors movie than a Captain America movie. I think probably a lot of people would agree with that. So focused on the ensemble and when I go back and I tried to watch the vendors movie or age of altron. I get really really bored. This is the only one that I can rewatch without getting bored. Ruined the Marvel Movie Period. The only event you only like when I saw vengeance I mean excluding infinity war and and game but like it's the only one of those three that I sort of go back and I'm like oh I can watch this whole thing in nine feel like I don't care about this and this feels really slow for the first thirty minutes you guys remember the marketing campaign for like civil war. Pick pick your side which side and people listening on twitter. Ruben like scarlet witch. And then. Well that was our poster but yes but like the. You could tweet out. Like which team are you team? Ironman or team captain America And I was like I mean. I'm the Good Guy Captain America and there are so many people team out here and man. You should sell out your privacy. The government should all of your rights. This is I remember the marketing campaign. I think you always forget. It is a captain America. Movie it's Captain America. Three the third one where you go. Oh I forgot about that because it's an unsolvable movie and I remember the marketing campaign being a trailer and twitter. That here's our movie. I was like Holy Shit. There's a Black Panther Spiderman and moving them. I guess pretty cool because go see a billion dollars a great and it's like I. Yeah it is a better avengers movie then the two of injured movies before it which is crazy because it has a darker tone because I think Joe Sweden R. Marvel well when vendors the vendors get together thors there everyone's happy revenue good time and they're like well if we do so voice and be sad. It didn't make my top five but I do think ev- injures I ventures the second. Half of that movie is really great. It was a feature on my top five. I mean it appears as though at least and I are the only ones who don't have it. You both do. Have it on your top five? But I think it's close. The only problem is I think it's this situation. The Russo brothers got to make they got to make a couple movie they got to make a movie and then they got to make a practice avengers and then they got to make two full blown avengers just weeden jumped to his first step into the marvel. Universe was with this avengers thing and I think wrapping your head around all of that. You're watching for me. You're watching that happen in the first half of the movie and it isn't until you get to the second half off of this. I disagree. I thought the vendors like the perfect of injures movie we got you like the beginning where Nick Fury is drafting and in. Hawkeye is bad guy. He thinks some setup Ryan is number five of six and Adam. You put your number five. Yeah I think because I think people don't like nostalgia for it which has weird as that sounds because it's I guess ten years old now but it's set like I think it's an important building block to this insane ecosystem that they've created this this machine. That cannot be stopped. It's funny oh I it again. I'm not saying it's bad. I wouldn't have it anywhere close to my bad list is definitely on the in the top top of the list. Go but I maybe. This is more of a testament to how bad ironman two is where ironman too is completely devoted to getting people ready for avengers But when you sit down for ventures they're still like Oh hold on we need to get you ready for this and I'm like what the fuck was what the bug was on the same question. It was time at time killer. No but I'm I'm with you right like I think if you adventures actually one of those movies where if I catch it from the beginning I might just sit and watch this whole thing because they just keep moving. It moves really well. It moves like Ajayi. We didn't tell us a great filmmaker only feel that way if I catch it after the first forty five minutes I think like if I catch it around the time. They're fighting in the woods or maybe even just a little bit after that. Then I'll watch all through to the end if if a vendor's comes on TV and it's Nick Fury driving away from the collapsing bunker. I'm gone into citing moments but I don't care about it but Scott everything. It's like shield headquarters. Oh my God. We're seeing more of shield now. Nick fears looking. It's the tesseract Luque's back and now Hong Kong is part of who kidnapping them all. It's all building up to this moment. I get kicked name. What I think is important about them. Laughter of vendors in my opinion nuke fury Hawkeye Loki. All of these characters I think endeared themselves to the audience After avengers we'll sure through avengers. Hawkeye was guy who hung out at her. He's a guy who was like in the shadows shooting in one and local away from bumfights. It was just the kind of lane villain from four which was also not a great movie and so like that's what was like the building blocks. Yeah the vendors. So that's why I don't care about the first half of that movie another movie. That did the ensemble thing. But it didn't a different way than vendors where it just presented the entire ensemble to us with its debut. Movie The three Three of US had this on our list. me at number four James Number. Three and Ryan and number two is guardians of the galaxy. I one James Gone killed which I did not expect that. I would so into gardens the galaxy. I think the way that music as a you know he copied baby driver. He's having to build the whole thing around music. Okay I'm just kidding. But but the way that like he used star Lord's time and in his him being stuck personally influenced by the time period he lived in to influence the world of variants of Silk Time period. James Gunn is stuck. It's I think it's one of the funnier. Our own of the marvel movies it gets. It gets the comedy right and it doesn't fall. Flat like drax is one of the funniest characters rockets. A great character like it also had a huge impact on the later of injure movies. Yeah like them. Being part of that is exciting because it they just did a really smart building block. I wanted to add it to my lesson. I don't think I kinda see both movies as one in a weird way that makes sense luckily one into yeah kind of just like they just feel like Very similar because they're just happening in their own world they're not touching the rest of me on my worst list. We'll talk with really continue interesting. Thought I always wants. I'm curious hate it for me. Guardians of the galaxy is so amazing. Yeah as it Comic Book Kid. Growing when you got into cosmic stuff I was like I'm out thank you know there's some great stories. Deterrent to you. It was like the idea of spe is all spacey's more compelling to see how things played out on Earth. I think so. It just felt earth felt more alive in a lot ways. The base always felt fast in empty. And that's not to criticize any of the stories that just my kind of perception of and what you're saying about the time period that James Gunn is stuck in. This is one of those movies that it's happened several times over the course of twenty five films where I'm like. I think I'm done with these. I think I'm done and then and then we'll come back. I'm back in guardians a galaxy completely. Pulled me back in and made the cosmic aspect of the Marvel universe. The most interesting for me because he turned it into like the eighties. Lifer like space is the your music and space is this sound and it was so different from the which I actually Kinda liked as to the the Very D- Saturated Real World Captain America. Iron Man World that we were kind of going into now's like Holy Shit. This is great and he set the tone for some of my favorite like aspects of the marvel. Cinematic universe going forward. Which is this high. Saturation dislike crazy wild characters and I yeah. I was blown away because when they said they to guardians of the galaxy. I went the one with the tree. You're doing that and I was. That was every blog post for about for about six months. I it Interact KHUDA. If I well. I guess Mojo can't do it all well and it was like a ended up being one of the best movies. Also also James Gunn and I was like the guy that made me watch ellen page and Rainn Wilson has sacked. One of them was having. Say's James Your Passion for it to me. This was like such a achievement because it's like It really embraced the absurdity of these movies like like no other movies. Did you know all these movies are insane when you think about the nuts and bolts of what you're watching within this movie just embrace that and it was like all right? We're GONNA throw this KUNA in the street and really embrace kind of the all met up just kind of like this is insane and we're gonNA treat it as such but And it was genuinely funny and the soundtrack was awesome. You like funny marvel movies. I've heard. Yeah that's my won't main criteria because I don't care either about these movies but I but when I see them I like like I like like you were saying like every time I say a new movie comes out. I'm like I don't give a shit about this new marvel movie but then somehow they've only back in. What are you going to say? Tell you what was it? That was at least talk. We look a lot of the humor aspects for me because there are a lot of marble moves that will see in the theater and in that theater experience. You know your pack theater. Everyone's laughing around you. You laugh to you. It's a it's a hype thing but then like when I watched him at home again like Oh either. Seamer isn't landing for me but guardians does is the exception where I'm like. Oh yeah this is all it. They nail he nails the humor in all the characters. It's not like you know them as much as Snow Captain America and you think they're all pretty new and he did such a good job of introducing everybody took two for the unsolvable of the vendors all those other movies but for Guardians. He's like now. There's just this rat crew. It's it's a weird thing too because on one hand almost nothing was at stake with the being involved with MCI but it also had the task of introducing fantasy. Not I mean grew beyond a post credits scene. Man Sitting in chair connective tissue. It's the sort of thing that I think. That's what you're right was quitting over where he's like. Listen you can do most of the anchorman movie. But at some point you need to mention captain. America's no I'm out kept kept in America. We finish the sentence he's like. Nah I'm here I'm British. And then he had his tea and he left and then with James. Galway like up in. Dana's whatever we'll figure it out not gonNA fight you I'll I'll make it work. I'm an easy going guy. Just don't read my tweets. I it's just it's a little. It's also the first time where they're like. Infinity Stone like they like straight up say infinity stone. Yeah the only I think. The only shortcoming of Guardians of the galaxy is that Ronin gets like running yes sick villain but not in that movie right way so much. What kind of a joke in the movie? He is funny. Great bad guy. Running talking about Hawkeye Ronin or Lee Pace Ronin Lee Pace Ronin views. I only know one running and I thought that Ronin would get a reprieve in Captain Marvel. That didn't happen and they should on them again. Yeah and it sucks. Because he is kind of. He's pretty cool and it sucks that they he isn't but I know that it's because this had thanos is looming kind of thing. The only thing that I would strike against guardians ago also the first trailer of a camp where it is not funny. Talk hiding it. But it's weird. They cut it like it's funny and the ruin they don't ruin the jokes for the final movie but the trail. I rarely that came out. I watched now like oh no like in less there in less. This editor doesn't know what humor is. This movie is going to be terrible. And then you watch all. Yeah he didn't the editor just doesn't know a comedic timing. It was strange another movie that brought us into the COSMAS. Was Thor Ragnarok. I had it as number one on my list. Adam had his number four. James is also number one Ryan did not acknowledge which is weird hearing how much you value. Yeah that is true. I I did appreciate this movie There's I will say I fell asleep which I think it does factor into this You Watch it at two. Am Have you watched it? 'cause I consider it the funniest movie in my opinion. It is the rutgers stuff it I know this is my fault. I just felt no. That's fine it if you haven't seen the movie yeah. At least it gives us unconventional character. Mashups like if you had told me ten years ago my favorite marvel movie would be one pairing hulk and I'd be like what are you. Have you ever read a World War Hulk Beta Ray? Bill shows up at one point. So the CIA. The chances of very practical effects in this. I remember like really gross gooey. Aliens and stuff. It's probably all CGI. Well this Chris. Hemsworth is real. This is someone took James Guns wacky cosmic universes starting point and then made a copy of a copy of it right and so we were like all right. Well we were looking at is the regular version of the wacky part of the cosmic universe. What we showed you the wacky version of the wacky part of the cosmic universe. But the amazing about this movie is how it dances between fantasy and sci fi so seamlessly like when it's when it's in these worlds. It's just a sci-fi completely like blade runner ask world and then a switchover and then Idris Elba's in a fantasy movie you know like Lord of the Rings Style and it's just I mean it's fucking great it it is also because it spaces like all right. You got three chances you sucked I two because I think those are movies are pretty terrible and half of it as good. I wonder if some cool stuff has redeemable things but I remember thinking like man. I love Ironman. What else you got. And then I saw captain America which does okay. I saw your door. There's so much fun. Texture in this movie to a play at the beginning where locals reenacting out like the glorious Like rise in and like just the texture of like the is it was his. Name's at Cronk. No crank cronk from the stone man. I mean you're thinking of Emperor's new groove. Yeah I believe. There's there's a lot of fun texture. This movie sets up Tessa Thompson. Who's an awesome character? It has a cool villain. I mean there's the principal Ragnarok itself but then Cate Blanchett is just amazing to watch all the Times Hotter Cate Blanchett or tests Thompson this. I'M GONNA go Kate Blanchett. She's in her body suit and she does her thing. See like Oh my hair and then it turns into spikes and also she's like eighty six years old. Syriac looking good and it's fun. We get fun hulk out of this but you also get pure hulk. Yeah let me get goofy. It's sort of like this is like a binge night of hulking before the next movie where there is no hulk you you get a you know a little bit of a hangover of Hawk and then no more hawk. Some people predicted way way back that whole couldn't handle his own movie and the best thing you can do is be param. Comedic within other Marvel character to that. Yeah that's a good prediction. Universal Studios Universal. Pictures has the right to the Hawk films. No I'm just saying Some people thought if they were going to do the whole Barrel Yeah. Some people write marvel wrote out entire plots for movies. That should have been ironman three but at and it had the whole dude is in then. It got downloaded. Yeah I think it's an incredible film that transcends being a Superhero. I love it so much He's the only problem though. Does it stand on its own? I think so. Yeah I think so at least mentioned the play one of the best things about it is. It's a direct sequel authority And I don't know I saw two months. Here's my story about watching we. Should we get into it and I think we have time unfortunately wash? I'll talk more about thor to when we get to our worst list when you say it for extra. I just love that Thor Ragnarok has seen in it with a play that summarizes the events of torture because they know we talked about winter soldier. A little bit adamant I have it in our number two spots games. I was surprised you didn't include it. I put a civil war in there as my as my winter soldier placeholder to different movies to me and is winter soldiers. Cool equal spy thriller And for me it was what was exceptional was. I didn't really liked the first captain. America like I do love that movie a lot and I. I love that. It's a different time period. The Castle and Tommy Lee Jones was bad. But I like the second movie of of the Captain. America franchise is nothing like the first I thought was pretty awesome. Feat is also what that's the beginning of the Russo brothers Reign of terror right. That's took over and they're like. Hey let's let's make fun kind of redeeming in my mind. kept America. It was like kind of lay it like I move okay a lot. I think he's a good character. I think the movies not the best. I think they're they're got some growing pains and then he's dressed like an ass in avengers fucking hate that. He's still good. Mike Mike Damn. They're they're so powering. Through the castings fantastic and I think the writings good like they're going to. They're going to do it then. Winter soldier comes out and I guess they nailed everything. It's the best suit in my opinion that black one that he wears in the beginning And then it's a it's a good use of his character. And then what happens you lose? A bad was that they ruined suit again in avengers two and then they fix it again. Yeah that's true I it has asthma. Anyway that's one of the things about America is he has no arc. Yeah he is. He is a straight stick. That was put it up and he just fell over points at one direction as only does good. He is true. Good Yeah but I do love I mean I love cats America being a man of time. That can't reconcile that and then also like loss love Eddie level. That's the only problem when I always wonder like if any this underlying racism when he he just. He did it more adventures when he goes. Things aren't as good as they used to be. What does that what do you? What do you mean cell phones tracking you? And he's like okay. They had more fun with it and winter soldier. When he's like. Oh Nirvana write that down. Okay and then you know you see that. He's not a racist. I'm such a sucker for underdogs to when he's like little scrawny captain Like pre pre transformation. It gets me in the guy. Can you fall in the agent? Carter Part I. I'm one of the people. I think that was happy that they got together. I mean the fact that she was like come soldier. I have no sexual interest nuclear skinny boy. And then he gets all buffs. We'll keep it professional system along the natural reaction. They made it happen in endgame we three of US Not Ryan of course at Infinity War on our lists and then James you had endgame seventh remember I think infinity war. I the reason I choose over on game is to me. It feels like the more comprehensive movie like film turnhout tells the story and game is an amazing feat now vendors Infinity Warren game was supposed to be one movie I mean. Do we count that as two movies instead of bill. One and throw another best of on their say I feel like it's the same I put it to because technically it's what six hours or something of movie counts as two movies. They made it announcement. Hey we're actually going to split this into two. Then I know he was the one that was infinity war part one and part two. That's three nine is gonNA be recalling infinity war part one and part then. They changed that. We're GONNA don't think there's any way they ever planned to do that as one movie. I think they are. They they will that. We're all started writing it. Maybe according to Ryan just one fantasy I think invented yours the better more reliable movie and it does have that empire strikes back vibe. At the end endgame has the best build up of all time of any marvel movie. Which is the big giant battle. That's twenty minutes years. You're like thank you via affects people for all you have given us to think for me about about endgame War is like the two towers and end game is like the return of the eleven turn twin but And so I think that. But my the coolest thing for me is how endgame managed to be a retrospective on the marvel franchise going back in time in hitting on those different moments. Yeah just like your problem. With the first avenger it takes a long time to get. That movie has an hour hour. You need that brings with. It takes a long time to get to that action setpiece. Yeah it's in the aftermath of the most major thing which again going back to the man to comparison ironman too is a wet fart and then it goes and now let's pick up the pieces in avengers which I'm like. No you can only do that if it ends like infinity. War Infinity War. I'm like Oh yeah. We need to figure out what what is the world. Look after all. This time is justified. Open it with an action piece which feels hollow which is supposed to do Because it's like. Hey We kill the bad guy. Oh yeah well time to go back home where there's just the world looks dead. Everyone's upset as as me. The audience watching I was like I was like. Oh Shit like what the fuck is going on like? I mean I didn't know that time travel was going to be a part of it and say what you will about using time travel for stuff that now we have. A giant can of worms opened up upon the marvel cinematic universe. Yeah I was just like I was like. Oh fuck this. What is the pacing of this movie? Like just all over. The Place de inventory gives us more constant. I think I've watched that one more than the higher. It's I made that decision. It's just yeah you can't have one or the other either and but yeah I got the ending of Endgame Assocham. Good the the beginning that they spent way too much time like sulking on dead earth like where they're just kind of like everyone was sad and I get like you're saying look. We had to go check in on with all these old but it did not need to be an hour. I think in hindsight it's like thirty minutes old. Feels like an hour to check in on all the characters. I didn't mind it. It's okay with you. Yeah I think you would have haircut. I think it would have felt Russia. Otherwise but no. I think that's the problem is people will you will watch it. You Watch. Infinity were from beginning to end and then game fast forward to the end and watch the big fight. That's that's yeah my feeling anyway. But it's all the build up to captain. America's scene is proud got probably history is like the greatest superhero buildup of all time. I I don't know if you've ever top again. It hasn't been since like Lord of the rings that I felt that culmination of like emotion and stuff like haven't felt like. Oh my God. This is a pay off. This is a payoff that no media can ever achieve again but but yeah but it's also yeah. I know we're document Vinnie. All right but like anyway. Yeah sorry sorry at least I got off. We talk about them in conjunction with the game on their anyways. Yeah that's fine is that they work in concert together. I I really do like endgame. Issues is feel like Anthony. Better film but I agree. I agree but I'm still gonNA enjoy both of them on for. This doesn't have ronin which one good wine Jeremy Renner in it remember. Yeah Oh they do yeah. They mentioned there. He's under house arrest. You can least check in on you. Call him more skirted bitch. I think we've covered kind of the ones I james and Adam and I share so now it's time to get into Ryan completely different episode of our Infinity Ward. So Ryan you had ironman. Three is number six shane black's. In meandering I love that movie. Why William why do you hate it so much? It's on your number. It's his number one. Worst in my number two were the best. I hate it because they did. The thing that the ironman cartoon did which is about board of its head. What if iron manages remote controlled his robot instead of getting in the suit so there were remote control was was your main doubt was that that summed it up for me when when he drove in front of the truck and a button to a bunch of pieces and he's literally on a yacht close. There's nothing at stake okay. But what about the people that are playing? I don't know who they are on care. I felt that I agree with Adam that watching three. I felt like nothing was at stake. Nothing in the world like an again network. We're relationship with that little kid who little kids name. I don't yeah little while but it was like it. Felt like nothing was at stake for the course of the whole movie. I think it's I think Shane Black's cool. He makes great movies but this they should have given him like a guardians if they want it because this feels its iron man who feels like. He's the spinal cord of this whole thing except that he's like well. I'm not GonNa make the brain stem. I'm going to make this other part like this should have been like the the off World Adventures of iron man and I would have been more fine with it. Felt like it didn't add anything to the to the building cinematic universe. I felt like it made him seem like a worse ironman because he doesn't have he's barely in the suit for the whole fucking movie paltrow's into suit more than he is I like all these things. Why do I like the part when he was floating around with rocket boots and a handgun that to me? Doesn't you don't build up to that? I don't remember any I think guys. Diana is hilarious. If you go back and watch it Probably laughed more than I enjoyed anything but like Guy Guy. Pearce is the exact same character only worse as Sam Rockwell in our man to he's just a less entertaining version of Ham. Or whatever. You like it okay. So this movie is like the of all the movies them see. This is like the troll movie right. Same black I feel like who is such a weird director maker of lethal weapon last action hero installing that and and he made he he pulls the rug from all your expectations. He does you know it's basically a buddy movie with him in this little kid for most of the movie and he's not in the suit which I thought was cool after the disappointment of ironman too and then the whole mandatory thing or what is Mandarin. You know how I love the idea of you had this villain you build them up as the villain of your movie. Oh and then at the end. He's an actor. Like I thought that whole thing was awesome. Like I just hadn't seen in a film before like that you're villain is not the real villain in the way the way that you think. He is. And Yeah like a good action. Pulled the rug on your expectations. You're allowed to like it. I agree with those points. I think the problem is when it's a piece of the Pie. It'd be like if you order and it's pepperoni everywhere. And then one has a Brownie on it. Now why is there fucking one slice of bread? Judge these movies based on how they fit into the ultimate puzzle of the emcee. But you gotTa Judge. Each as the fun time that you had watching it. I didn't have fun. I didn't the more angry than I was enjoying myself. You guys obviously like Super Comic Book Peanut. Anything before I go sit down. I'm like I don't know who these people are as. I'm pretty sure the What's the mandarin character? Was it like a racist like Chinese stereotype or something so I I don't. I'm not the one going out. Know How could they not because he's Fu Manchu right or is are these the dragon character? I don't know it's all based on common is based on comics that I I'm sort interested in. Yes right and I've read a comic book here and there but I'm like they ruined it because like I read most of the civil war comics and I read the Infinity Gauntlet run and everything you just said you sat down and you said that he had a remote control on the vest I thought that was a cooling dessange. Harken back to when I was a kid and I don't know much about Iran an iron man Saturday morning cartoon I watched in most of the time he was remote controlling robots I was stupid and from then on unless he's in a marvel versus Capcom game. I don't care about iron man. He sucks the war-machine and he's better. Anyway who cares we just when you're when you're coming up with your premise? And someone in the room says Moore Pepper Potts and starts clapping and saying yes and then they go. What if pepper potts was iron man and then every what's what's Robert? Downey junior during the during the sequence being the kid in their laughing clapping James. We should appreciate Robert. Downey junior when we had them because he does and we have to deal with that and spider man far from home. Which is the third best. Movie ON RYAN'S LISTS. Y'All see this one. Did I really liked it but this is more on my enjoyments the cheesecake you have after the meal. Okay would say this is a great like John Hughes Esq summer road trip or yeah summer vacation kind of a film and a Spiderman movie second which is what I liked about. It was that it was just a fun. High School kids being high school kids on vacation and one of them happens to be Spiderman. I thought that was a cool Concept for a film. I thought it was cool. It's not in the movie Trailer ended films so many things and putting CG on remember it. I I agree I liked this movie too but again I like things I do like them like. We've mentioned in concert with the Grand Design. And but him going on a road trip through Europe a place that's relatively been untouched by the marvel. Cinematic Universe thus far seems to be very smart but very much in character because you can't do a spiderman swinging around New York City anymore. There's we already know that there's more equipped things to handle those situations so putting him somewhere else was. I thought a great decision. I thought Jake Jillian Hall great casting in the kind of the iron man read area to like. He's not the real villains better. I me- I argue the much. Better right my only criticism because I always thought Jay Jalen Hall would have been great like ten years ago. Fifteen years ago would have been an amazing Peter Parker and Spider Man. Because we got. We got What's his face by Toby. Maguire who is a really great Peter Parker and a terrible spider man. Andrew Garfield and Andrew Garfield who is an okay Spiderman in terrible Peter? Parker I thought Jay Jalen Hall could have been both been the perfect one anytime hollins. Great you know Sam. Raimi thought that too when Togo broke his back like well getting this guy that looks like him but Mister music my only my only real honestly my only real criticism of this movie is the ministerial reveal is too I mean. I guess if you don't read any comics like maybe I had no idea if you've ever heard of Spiderman before you know mysteriously was one of his greatest nemesis is nemeses. Msi resign and I thought maybe could have been a better way to hide that. Reveal where they just make him their sons of other characters that they could have said he was a throwaway comic book. Character from the from. The Spider Man Marvel Universe. That you just sage Jilin hoses character and then no not only is he not that character. He is mysterious. And you'd be like Oh shit because there was a bunch of marketing material. That movie that was talking about mysterious He's going to be a bad no. He's good now in a movie. Never convinced me otherwise number. One was a curveball. Adam told me to take off. Deadpool had them why it's the best. It's the best Well part of the MC at least sent the email and I read it. It said the three letters. Cu Yeah which are marvel movies made by Marvel Studios Not Fox searchlight or it was only by the rules. Adam I I know knows your number one. I do this movie rocks alright. Dead Pay rocks is an awesome movie. Like Fun Yeah. Funds and eight hard core the the the violence is bad ass. You know like it's super violent super R. rated which all Marvel News berated the be all better for it you know okay and just get away with more and they did. And it's it's freaking good opinion but I enjoyed deadpool. Two more dead joke about the team that he forms and then what happens to them. Tickles my funny. So that was a great scene. Yeah in sequence. I think it has good moments I'm looking forward to deadpool being put it being somewhat castrated. Like I'd actually like to see only because don't take this wrong. Okay I think when you make a rated R. movie if you're doing it for art's sake. I think you get some get a parasite type movie or something where it's like. Okay you you have more adult themes when we can say all the POOP JOKES WE WANT. We can show all the blood. Deadpool lenses off to the violence and I think that's why gets a radar great. But if it's just going to say more fucks I I don't think that's GonNa make it but I I in general I agree with you but it is true to the character though. He is an immature asshole. You know that breaks fourth wall so I think it's kind of like this needs to be more fox more poop jokes and all that a suggestion. I saw on read it. We're all the best ideas. Come from actually agreed with this. One besides James's I remain three script than those downloaded into oblivion Someone said that it would actually be really funny if one day put into the MC you and he's constantly getting bleeped and he's aware of it is like what the hell is going on and they're going to do that and then it's not going to turn out great. Why did they do that and be like well? It sounded good on paper. I Dunno I think whatever they do they'll pull it arthur adversity ability you have deadpool in the actual mc you like all its it opens up too big of a can of worms. You know like well. No they have to find a way of introducing X. men which is dead polls going to be the entry point. Because we're reboot bottomline. Knowing expected to get a good deadpool movie like everyone had abandoned that being positive last mostly Fox. They pull his thing and that's why they made him the way. He was in Origins Wolverine is like. No one likes the Shell to scream. The Rhett Reese and whatever the his writing partner is the screenplay writers that's great screenplay fees on I read the script actually. Yeah it's awesome. Yeah well if you want to sit around in your underwear like deadpool does. Why are you making some Mac?

Now time to talk about the worst. We've kind of touched on a little bit already. List my worst one or somewhere so my number five vendors age of altron stocks new sacks. We talked to those moments weird. 'cause he has moments. I think that's I didn't include on my bottom five because like I. James spader is a great old troy Altron Kinda cool. When he isn't too close to the camera there. It has hold buster like almost I feel like the action is well paced a little bit more. I always liked how the movie opens with. A COMIC-BOOK SPLASH page of them. All jumping through the woods to grover. Yeah quicksilver does have quicksilver. Oh Yeah I don't know if he adds anything to the movie you carry on. Will he be back for one division tune in? He's GonNa be Evan Peters this is so slow yeah it's it's a long build up just to see the hulk iron man which is the best part of the movie I I know here it. Does it builds up thor ragnarok which is good but because Hawk flies away we all forget that happens is because he's like me can't pound me breaker in half so like that's that's messed up but Ryan did you know the original. Jocelyn idea that they they said no to what so you know the scene where They're trying to like stall altron. Because you know they're just he's has drawn project that little like hammer thing that gives. Having the thing falls there's a part where Jocelyn originally wrote it where he's beating up on iron man and he's almost kills him and he's like he's GonNa die and then like punches and it's Bruce Banner Goes Oh shady hawks out and they beat the shit out. He was like there to distract them and other than cool well. They said we'll know hulk needs to get in shape. Flyway sad that doesn't work and Joscelyn's down with this shit. I'm GonNa go make a good movie. Who Justice League Adam and I were brave enough to put on our list with captain. Marvel thank you. Oh Yeah I would. Yeah that's that's definitely there. That both wrote that down there in my like 'cause you forgot it existed. I did. It's wondering one of Ryan's favorites because at the end of Spiderman far from home does were scrolls remember that. He stood up and he clapped. This is one of those guys leave movie. I haven't seen the MC you so so the so the scroll reveal at the Spiderman did what to you you laugh. You're asleep. I get confused in the infinity. War whatever when Captain Marvel Saves the day and I'm like well. I guess she can do anything. I wasn't sure walking time. Explain that there's lots of problems all around the universe that are apparently univer scale. Problem sees the so bad aspects. She doesn't have a schedule like she couldn't be there ten minutes earlier. Now it is weird where she is like. She's like she only can go six. She can blast beams out of her legs and go anywhere but only at sixty five miles per hour. Now I don't you're probably wondering where she got her powers from. It was from a jet engine question. It's not great. It made a billion dollars. So what the hell do I know? Okay we good no. It's real unfortunate because I do think that the back lot like the treatment of Larson is unjustified. It's it's pretty Shitty She's just acting and playing a character But yeah this movie's Dank be not the good day like Oh. This room is dank smell or something. Yeah Yeah squally around the time as iron man to go. There's still working out the kinks. Oh weird that. This real rushed better as like this movie had twenty predecessors showing how to make a move she ended up also not being super important. 'cause they they sort of they do the the ending of Infinity War. Like Oh my God Nick Fury the lasted before he disappeared as call Captain Marvel. She's GonNa Change everything just shows about got other stuff to do and then she shows up again and then thanos through ingenuity puncture harder or something. What does he do? He does something he he fools her and he beats her slot now. Working Ben Mandelson's always joy to watch but loveth with they have a song that is from the wrong time period movie that is all set the time period. Which one was it like? What is it just a girl or at the end of the when she like is like destroying soften? It's like okay because you Song that had girl except you've also established what year it is and that song is an out yet. The movie takes place in the nineties. Yeah I think. They established what year in the nineties. And just a girl so it's not out yet but okay doesn't exist didn't do enough research and and it's not like it's playing dia genetically in the film but he just you. You scraped the bottom of the barrel to find another movie that didn't seem to learn from its predecessors we touched on this Ryan delight this was ant man or both of them. I mean in in the loss by though it was unbalanced better. The only problem with 'em and the loss is it shouldn't have come out right after infinity. I was like I was like give me more of that near like three weeks. Before the events of infinity war things are boring. In normal Laurence Fishburne. I didn't hate man I just. It just felt like I felt like work. It's a middle of the road. Marvel movie walk. These movies should be here to showcase why you wanna see them and other things but I feel like and this is most of my worst list is the movies I have made me never want to watch these again and only see them as supporting characters and other places so I feel like we mentioned earlier. I think ant man is significantly less entertaining than he is in other movie and basically all the other movies. He's way funnier and charismatic. And Cool And he has more of a purpose. I still. It's still unclear to me why he's an man. He watched the movie which is his origin story. And I still don't know why he's ant man. I remember most of the movies accident. Right well yeah but that's what it seems like even that even though there like you treat your train answers like it's hard like Michael. Douglas has like a newspaper article in like this is the guy and I want. It does other than the news but it doesn't say anything about why he's the perfect guy to be an aunt suit. Nothing about it. I think the thought was. It's because he's expendable. I'm almost positive that was originally was like I don't care. If he goes to the criminal I know conceal stuff and you could literally at it. Doesn't it doesn't really pay him off? As the hero name should be naming named one other person could use his daughter name. Juan who then uses that being said I give ant man both one and two credit because he is like the for the you know ousted the dad who isn't there And his ex wife has moved on and start a new family but the new dad there is great. He and everyone loves them. And it's a very against type play for that. They could have really just done the most basic thing and so I always loved his relationship with his ex wife's new husband. Because it's really good. I still would've loved to see all of that. I just want to be in that alternate reality where the Edgar Edgar right made. It just did whatever he wanted. Yeah just that's all that's all Stephen in that. I see a movie for that because they just moved ahead and did what they could with what they have in like. It sucks that it constantly reminds you what could have been like. I still want to see an aggregate Superhero Movies. Just to see what he does with it. Every one of my Ones on my worst is like a What could have been kind of situation? Or it's just like it was fucked by their own ex my own personal expectations of what I wanted them to be like Yeah Guardians of the Galaxy. I loved Guardians. One so much that I that number two appointment a you guys like to a lot. I didn't like it a lot. I did think that with how much I loved Guardians One. I would love guardians to a lot more but I kind of watched it and then then then that was it I I watched it again and I was like. Oh No. I really liked the opening dopamine. Kurt Russell. I can't believe they figured out how to make a planet a character and Kurt. Russell was really ask Chris Pratt. Dad also got four syllables for you. Sell faster alone makes cameo but there was a lot in that movie that he didn't care about. I also wasn't crazy about how the very beginning. Let's split up and I'm like Exactly that sucked and and It certainly wasn't as funny as the others. And also it kind of was one of those where you you see how it's made like like the first one was such a surprise whereas the second one like the second that every time a new pop song would start and then there would be an action sequence. I'm like okay. We've done this several times. And and I think he's trying to get a lot of mileage out of these seventies pop songs which I it's not really earned like in the first one interesting now. You're I know at least it's going to say it's at least loves this movie because its has one of the best setups of all time and it's going to one of the greatest payoffs take it away at least no. It's the Michael Rooker at a morlock. Oh what are we going to meet him? He they show him remember. The woman WHO's not till's wouldn't yeah people and behold my greatest achievement in. It's a test tube because his name will be at them and then the one guy era class guys morlocks. Like you sucks. He's GonNa make them cool like seven movies ago at this point here like this is what they did with. Though they shouldn't or getting getting rid of the famous guy I liked Mantis Mantis alive. I thought she was a fun. Like foil setup with drafts and that that was a fun pairing I thought Michael Rooker as cheesy as it is the emotional payoff of him with star. Lord I do really is a very touching moment. No not really like like to me. He was kind of a supporting character in that first one and he's good but then to make him such a crucial important part of the in the second one but make him retroactively important. Kind of didn't work for me. Michael Ruggerio Michael Rooker whose characters name is also a thing in the comedy because he played marvel puzzle. Characters are important. Okay Gotcha. Comic Book covers ugly. We've talked about the The thor the first tooth doors a little bit snoozefest Especially dark world. Which I think. Oh my God I dark. World is the worst. It's probably the worst out of all of them. It's really terrible. When the theater you go to for some reason it didn't have subtitles. Baked in and so when the dark elsewhere talking. You're just kind of picking it up. I guess what were you pirating this movie? Now we went to the theater like it was a digital. It was like one of the new digital projectors where. I guess they could do it in different languages and it just didn't do any subtitles for when it was supposed to like seventy two movies. It was that apes movie when I was like a for for a long time. It was like it wasn't. I watched it on DVD or streaming. That was like they had so we got this digital digital rented or something And it was the same thing though for the elves. You had to turn on the captions or something like that. It wasn't just in the movie but we didn't realize which is a really bad side when there's a sequel seen happening between the villains and they're talking to each other and you're like I think I'm supposed to understand why but I need. He wasn't until I was like I was like what the fuck is happening. That I rewound it and I saw you had to turn like in the options. Turn and then it captioned them and I was like this is important. The fact that continued on scary thing on this movie is terrible. It's garbage. They also replaced one of the actors. One of his best no noticed and then they killed off the other two thorax and rock and no one noticed those people. Yup No one cared It made Natalie Portman way too important to the franchise like everything seemed like a big coincidence. Which is something I hate like. I know you have to draw out your hero. But everything involving her was a big coincidence No idea who the villainous I know. He's a dark Elf. He was no idea anything other than that. And then you got the Red Jam. It also sucks because they teamed up looking in. Thor and they were really charismatic together. But it's it's like this thing that's covered in dark sand cloud but they're also like who are going to not not good good. Nothing good about it anyway. I think that's fair to say that I'm sure GONNA get some flack for because it was an academy award nominee Was Black Panther. I who else had that honestly. I think it's one of the weaker marvel movies which is a shame because it has a lot that I really like in it like Suri I really like and I like the villain mongers. Great used great. But that's that's my biggest criticism. Black Panther everything other than Black Panther was really cool. Everything Jilib Bassett was great in that movie. The got the big lip there and every single scene that to Challah was in. He was the most boring part of that whole scene. And I'm like this is not how the he's way cooler in civil war and he's way cooler and infinity war like he's way cooler and all these other movies. Why is he the worst part of his moving?

Yeah I can't wait to see this. You know this sounds like the perfect set up for a film. You know. Go to cod. You know we're going to this or not invisible country you know. That's super technological. The whole setup sounds awesome and black. Panthers seems like a cool character to have a he wants to in civil war. He was in my opinion briefly in there though but but when I saw it. I'm just kind of like exactly what you're saying. I'm like I found myself an hour in kind of like I. I don't really Black Panther. The character isn't that cool. Everyone everything else is a little cooler. But I don't really care what's going on. I also. Yeah why like like. It was like one of those. I'm checking my watch too many times during the movie. I'm going. Wow this kind of sucks. I don't really have any other more important. Criticisms other than that. It was not fun. But it's weird though because the production design of actions strayed off the promise of super cool invisible place. It was a thing is something I feel like. I hadn't seen before all net university the CJ was really murky the when it was just people with spears fighting each other like in that When they go to Hong Kong or whatever there's South Korea think they thought they were chasing Andy Circus through Hong Kong. Might be right but when they're doing. That cool is soon as it's to rubber rubber Black Panthers Bang against each other. It looks terrible. the sat score the soundtrack is awesome Great Soundtrack but then I was watching the movie and I was like. I don't know I think he'll monger kinda earned it right like he followed all the rules and he beat the guy and he did it and then it just people were like but you know he's the one that he's named after him and I was like I don't know who's going to go unleash the I mean the guy but he's following your rules you point. He's also way cooler and wayward charismatic. So this E. G. I don't I. It's not great but also the now that the stories are out and it's at that they were under a time crunch. It's like that movie had another year. Cgi probably would have been really good but those are the weekend the weaker parts of the movie. Definitely that big. Yeah I mean they. They put it on a calendar. And there's so many moving pieces like we'll have to get done because then it comes up before infinity war and like it's just like a traffic jam one person who has the brake lights and then everything's closed. Three Black Panther wanted me to believe that forest whitaker looked like that in the nineties. Forest whittaker has looked like forest whittaker for the last fifty years you can't recast forest whittaker some young Guy Be like this force would have looked in the ninety s grandma targeting whitaker. No they just put forth with if they just put forest whittaker in there and had him stand on his knees or something very blown away. Or other yeah. Hard cuts the footage from cry again. It looks like a scene from What is the last star? Wars movie the skywalker. Where it's like it's like I don't know about this Black Panther business I man. I think you can't be with her. You're right James you in Ryan again. Find yourselves at odds because you doctor. Strange is one of your worse Ryan headed. It's one of his best conspiracy. Why for the same reason for the same reasons? Black Panther ant man. I thought he was one of the worst parts of that movie. What also what? His Hebrew whatsoever hurt his hand and then he got. He's a surgeon who hurt his hand. Yeah he's like I can't do surgery anymore. I need to go get in life. Don't so he goes. He goes to get who wizard enlightenment with the hopes of fixing his hand and it turns out that he's just naturally attuned to doing magic doesn't make none of it. They just tell you every actually he had to work hard to get on any break his hands in a bad car wreck on necessarily driving like that whole scene is he talking about. Maybe like it because it's a comedy that whole scene where he's driving his Lamborghini through the through the mountains of New York City or taking turned thousand miles an hour and his phone rings. I get this pizza. Poppers already opened it up like one beat away from Naked Gun. Crashes and he goes in my hand in hand shatter to be. It's like such a joke. The only the only redeeming thing about this whole movie for me was that it was the opposite of Black Panther where the visual effects were expect. Yeah but none of that mattered. Because I thought the whole movie was a big joke he was like I vow. Never to kill and then snaps with this. This cake is back now. I'm never GONNA kill in that car wreck. It showed that his character. He's a selfish self absorbed. You know impatience ego narcissistic EGOMANIAC. I mean what changes will then. He hurt his hands. Hurt do all of his wealth to try and fix his hands Selfish Still Dick Dick. Still Selfish. And then when that doesn't work he goes to Asia. Wim Transplant to learn magic. He continues to be selfish me until the very end of the movie. Like don't read that book. Don't touch that thing. And he's like got it reads. He learns at the end. I would say the argument is. He makes the biggest sacrifice which she's not only his time but his like his soul to do or get an an infinite loop for. I don't know why ten thousand years or whatever the ultimate selfless accidents saying though that's his arc takes place in a montage it at the very end of the movie effective are it's a pyramid. It's a straight line and then it's the top dog or but then the thing is then doctor strange is great and everything else. I love him and all the other movies. He's Super Fun even his throwaway scene with thor. And I'm like this is fun game to where it's like. You know he sees the possibilities and he's done swayed on those cool. Yeah so you didn't like one game. He holds water oh and he holds his finger up. And here's what I retain a lot of water infinity. War is where he's like. He had that awesome fight with Anna. Has Tony I don't have the time so it's the sun so so you just didn't like that. His story ARC. I think I think was. I think the script is bad. I think the script is bad. Robert my biggest argyle. I think it's one of those things I I remember. I watched I watched that movie when the credits rolled I was like they should put all the visual effects. People I and the rider should be last because this script me feel so lazy. I thought it was fun. I'd go down to the portals on the bottom starting to beef with car guy. They they go down to the portals in the bottom and they're like they're like these are the most important for the he's got a bomb in and blows him into the next portal. And I'm like that's the way you figured out how to move this scene along the timing of this. They haven't committed any terrorist acts for the equivalent of like a year and half and this when they're taking them down to do. This is now how you figured out you someone. Someone came in and said. Hey what's his name Robert Robert Car Guy? Hey Robert we gotta go to the next scene. He's like it doesn't make sensitive like fuck yourself. It's got like a bomb blows up into next scene. I don't know I. I think the script is bad everything else. I'm fine I am. I'm sad we won't get mads Mikkelsen at anything else. Mass Nicholson's great. No He's batches great. Yeah no I'm just saying like like Swinton's great great in fact that little white maybe we'll get what I want. He's great. I think more does great. We saw all these people are. GonNa get breakfast in Austin and we saw long and he said he's right so yeah. What's it like working with? Your best friend Benedict. Took me goes. You're talking about my friend Benedict. Said they said but no. They'll never they won't stop us. I'll just going to say that psychedelic montage at the beginning was like the coolest thing I've ever seen that you know when he's going through the whatever the when Sweden talk wandering any good faith. He had regained with Hollywood into Massa worm from Nicole News you he wrote the script never why why skipped what Doctor. Strange. Just one of the the writers for that that thing and he's one of the he's the guy who cried on all the girls that But now different guy guy you know Also the fact that it has the best visual effects and I thought the whole kind of I don't know what you call like eastern mysticism you know Aspect of the EU. That doctor strange represents is a cool addition again. Someone like like ducks. That's put doctor strange and Black Panther together because there's because there's there's so many elements there that our per our great and could have been amazing if it wasn't for one major aspect that just completely fell apart for me in Black Panthers Case. It was what they thought the main character. The titular character was supposed to be in that movie which is an accessory to everyone else and in doctor strange. It's the laziness with which they plotted out an actual story for the movie to take place. James doesn't matter yes. It all doesn't matter because after almost twenty five films the box office. Stephen Lang Starve. Avatar to says when avatar comes out in December of this year it's going to break. Every avengers. Endgame Avatar is brought him back now. This article by James Cameron Spear Stab through his heart. Yeah yeah he's still there to December twelfth and December. Twelve this year Yeah no I'm sorry we did. It get moved again. What is this article from? Three days ago. Stephen Lang Band camp. I mean I think it's actually twenty twenty one twenty one. Sorry I read that I just. I got excited. I was like you're telling me I'm getting Dune and Avatar two in the same year impossible. Well when asked if Avatar to could top end game at the box office with venom in his voice Stephen Lang said I expect so. He's in venom to know. Vitamin is voiced cable. And he couldn't even do that so wouldn't that be sad if after all that? Avatar comes out twelve years after the first one and then like I can't they've already they. They used all their goodwill. Tricked US once. What do you mean what they say for the first time? Yeah they said it was fine now. I know but no. It's not it's fine. It's a for it's fine. It's an ugly one of the one. This is a low qualification. But it's one of the best three D. movies one arguing with Avatar in ten ten and then all Jackass Three d three D on legacy. No try an from dark. They didn't brighten the move. He went through that. You're going to take this into the other because we got to wrap this up. Unfortunately this is a fun one. Thank you for sharing as one more point I was. I've seen this article Around like that he says this but really just somebody asked him the question. I thought it was Fi. Expect his answers very noncombatant Stephen Lang by saying Beasley? Everyone sharing your marble. Best and worst. That was fun for Y'all wrong. Those state came to this Is Not understand her Ryan's coming from when I saw his list. I was like what is I don. Thanks guys next week until Mouse Watch dead.

"Good Thursday morning, I'm Jake Sherman and welcome to your political playbook audio briefings. Stay tuned after the show for a message from jewel labs and Anna Palmer, there's been a big pylon against Joe Biden over his support of the Hyde amendment beta Rourke, Elizabeth Warren and others have ganged up against the former vice president over his support of language that prohibits most federal funding for abortion. But if you are or have been a member of congress fifteen people in this field fit that description, and you voted for big spending packages. There's a pretty good chance that you've also voted for the amendment. Yes, we understand Biden is reiterating support for the amendment, while others are moving away from it, but the Hyde amendment has gotten a lot of votes in many forms over the years. The Elizabeth Warren said she doesn't like to Hyde amendment, but of course, she's voted for. It doesn't take long to find an example of Warren voting for the amendment, for example, last year congress passed a government funding, Bill, which included this language, none of the funds appropriated in this act shall be expended for health benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. Warren voted for this Bill. So did Michael Bennett. Cory Booker Kirsten gillibrand Kamala Harris Amy klobuchar. Beta Rourke Eric swallow and others.

They're coming back this morning. I think a lot of progress is made yesterday. But we need to make a lot of progress he continued by saying. We're having a great talk with Mexico. We'll see what happens, but something pretty dramatic could happen. We've told Mexico the tariffs go on. And I mean it too and I'm very happy with it. And a lot of people senators included, they have no idea what they're talking about. When it comes to tariffs, they have absolutely no idea. When you have the money when you had the product when you have the thing that everybody wants you're in a position to do very well, with tariffs, and that's where we are. Meanwhile, back home, our colleagues. Burgess Everett, Melanie Zenonas and Marianne Levin report that Republicans aren't war over Trump's tariffs. Here's a story. Everyone will be talking about Heather cable is reporting, but Nancy Pelosi told senior democrat she'd like to see Trump in prison. This came as she clashed with House Judiciary chairman, Jerry Nadler, in a meeting Thursday over whether to launch peach proceedings, Nadler's pressing Pelosi to allow its committee to move forward. She said she wasn't open to the idea of impeaching Trump. At this time Pelosi said, I don't wanna see impeached. I want to see him in prison.

Assessing the Democratic Candidates
"Are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash W. S J that's indeed dot com slash W. S j. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. Hello and welcome to the Wall Street Journal's Potomac watch. I'm Bill mcgurn filling in for Paul zhigo. With me today is Kim strassel. Hello, Kim, bell Kim. We're going to first talk about the problems that some of the white male Democrats have in running for president. And then later we'll follow. It turns out some of the white female Democrats have their own set of problems. So let's start with the the front runners in the in the democratic campaign. There's Joe Biden who hasn't announced but is at the top of the polls right behind him. His Bernie Sanders and beta Rourke just announced and he's not at the top of the polls. But he said kind of a record for the initial fundraising. So at least with Biden and with well, actually, all of them. They've all seemed to have to apologize for being white. And male right in Biden for being old white male and burning the same way the list of apologies. Now. Bill is almost becoming amusing. And it's becoming even a joke on the left. I mean, I was watching Trevor Noah this clip the other day, and he was just he was insane. He was this is crazy. I've never seen anything like this. But I mean, the the beta apology tour kinda sums it all up, right? So we find out that he was a back all the way in his teenage years that he belonged to a hacking group called the cult of the dead cow and that he wrote some fiction under the name psychedelic warlord. We find out that out on the trail. He's made a couple of quips about how his wife largely raised their children sometimes with a little help from him. This apparently was an expression of his white privilege for which he apologized. He had to apologize for his teenage antics. He had to apologize for saying that he was born to it in fact for running for the presidential race something. That's just a phrase to go back to Trevor Noah, he says, you know, when I say, I'm born to. Go get that. All you eat buffet. It doesn't mean that. I think I'm privileged in any way. I don't need to apologize for it. But you know, it's this if this is what we're going to get. And I think the important point of this is we're not getting any substance from a lot of these people. It's just all from along the edges of what's PC to say or not. And what do you need to apologize from your past life over in fairness to party? This is the logic of their position. Right. I mean, a lot of people think, oh, this is just crazy talk when you hear about white privilege and so forth. But if you embrace it if you embrace this identity politics as Democrats have it becomes very difficult for someone like Joe Biden or better Rourke or Bernie Sanders to win. I mean, some columnists just wrote a piecing better rock for using that nickname. It's like stolen valor. Because you know, the implication he's trying to pretend to be a Latino when he's not it just, but this is the logic. Right. They're not there. By accident. This is where it takes you. Yeah. And not just identity politics. But but grievance politics and victim, politics, I noticed. So one of the things that Bernie has had to apologize for is the fact that they're apparently in his two thousand sixteen campaign were some as his Email campaign. Aides are way down on the list. Like, these are not guys that are traveling around with Bernie and are his right hand women. These are just people down one of his many millions of surrogates out there who felt as though they were mistreated as women and are claiming sexual harassment and mistreatment, you know, one of the things that really strikes me as you know, no one no one's claiming an actual crime. Right there just claiming that they felt uncomfortable at times, you know, or they felt that there were some of their mail campaign aides that got paid more than they did. And Bernie supposedly for the fault of not knowing every little. Tiny thing that happened in his campaign had to come out on apologize for this. Well, now, you see some of his own campaign. Aides saying, you know, this this is very disturbing. You know, metoo should not be used as a political weapon. Well, where did you think it was going to end up, you know, after you watched the cabinet hearings? The truth is something of their own creation. None none entirely, but it's been largely used as a political weapon in the logic of this is to put certainly white males. But maybe white females that disadvantage. I mean, the logic is to diminish the claims of these candidates not on their substantive positions. I mean, it's fascinating to me that there's not that much distinction on issues and factors not much talk of issues. It's all this kind of as you say grievance. But again in so many other parts of American life. That's where the democratic philosophy is put us in. Now, it's it's kind of creating these contradictions within the party itself. Well, and instead of pushing back on it they feed into it. I was really struck. So Jeff Weaver who was Bernie Sanders is campaign manager in two thousand sixteen and is now not returning impart because of this whole uproar over what happened in the campaign, you know, but when asked about this instead of saying. Look, you know, every campaign has its issues, and you know, certainly unhappy if anyone felt bad he goes, well, yeah, you know, was our campaign to mail. Yes. Was to light. Yes. You know, we really need to fix these things. Well, once you bend to that mentality. That's what you end up. Logic apply to you. That's what I mean. The logic is unforgivable. Right. And so you're right. I mean, when you look out there, I I would I would say that there are some candidates who I think are making an attempt to to run on some ideas in issues. Elizabeth Warren would be one I don't particularly like her issues and Mike her policy positions. But she is out there talking about them a lot. You know, Bernie Sanders is Ben through this rodeo before. So he's out promoting some of the same things that he promoted the last time around, but you know, where does Beethoven stand on anything? No one knows where Joe Biden's going to come out on any of the major issues are touch points in the in liberal politics. These days Medicare for all or the green new deal. So we're just sort of in suspended animation. Watching the show. It makes them look a week to the oh a rock when he apologized for having said his wife did more to raise the children than he did. It was unclear to me whether he's apologizing. For saying that for admitting it or for actually being the husband that didn't do as much. I mean, look if if you can't say that the the premise for ninety percent of our sitcoms goes out the windows. I bet if you took a poll of a lot of American moms. They would think the dads aren't doing as much as they do to raise the children. And then then you have Joe Biden again, he's not he's not officially in the race. But he's leading most of the polls. And it seems to me that if if if Joe Biden were were to defeat Donald Trump his best shot is to campaign on a platform as I have the experience. I I've worked in the White House. I can bring civility and respect back to the White House. Okay. Kind of a moderate position not only in his views, but in in his demeanor, and I think he had a great chance to distinguish himself from the pack when he he referred to vice president Pence as a decent guy right in in some talk. And then immediately he was attacked on Twitter led by the sex, and the city actress who became a gubernatorial candidate, Cynthia Nixon any folded completely now, I think if Joe Biden had said, look, I I don't agree with the guy on anything. You know, we're we're we're, but I he can be decent guy. These guys are our political opponents, not our enemies. I think he would have really been rewarded for that? As it was. I think he looked he looked weak, and I he sort of been trying to walk back the apology now. But if they can't even stay with the statement like that, I mean, here's a question. What hope is there for defeating Donald Trump, if they're gonna savage each other with this, you know, grievance, politics and identity politics beforehand. I mean, it's going to be a rough ride to who for whoever gets the nomination. Well, and you're right. He did realize he looked weak and that he'd blown opportunity because he has been trying to walk back saying, well, he was at another speech. And he said, well, you know, folks. We're in a bad spot when I can't even refer to someone as a decent guy. We'll he's right except for why. Did he apologize in the first place, you know, and that's not as only apologies last year. We had Biden out apologizing to Anita hill for a pair not treating her with enough respect during the Clarence Thomas hearings. He apologized earlier this year for being too much of a hard liner on criminal Justice, supposedly not being in the right place. And that's the beginning. I have a feeling because he is getting brutalized Bill already. You know every day. The New York Times has another hit piece out on Joe Biden about the money. He's accepted for his speeches or past ills and wrongs because they're rooting for someone more in the very progressive left. But you make a very good point that just because the twenty percent of Americans who self identify as liberals, and who are going to be the main people in these primaries and caucuses in the democratic primary just because. They want a kind of Kamala Harris or Cory Booker type doesn't necessarily mean that Americans do in that they wouldn't prefer a guy like Joe Biden who's willing to at least extend hand to the other side. Okay. We're going to take a short break. Now. You're listening to Potomac watch. From the Wall Street Journal, are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash W. S J that's indeed dot com slash W s j. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. Welcome back to Potomac watch. From the Wall Street Journal. I'm Bill mcgurn and Kim strassel, and I've been talking about some of the internal challenges facing some of the leading men in the democratic presidential brace Kim just to get back to the to to wrap up. This main point look if there's one thing the Democrats are United on its defeating Donald Trump right in in twenty twenty. I mean that would be a catastrophe for for them if he were reelected, but this doesn't seem the way to get there. The the kind of savaging of all the candidates and breast-beating about their past sins and so forth. I mean, are they gonna is whoever emerges from this can be crippled by the experience. Look, I think there's two points here that keep getting missed because the media by and large wants to close its eyes to a lot of this stuff. They hate Donald Trump. So they're just not focused at all on some of the structural problems in the Democratic Party, one of those which we continue to talk about here is that there is an enormous Gulf in the Democratic Party at the moment ace split. Unlike the party has seen in a generation between the progressive left and the centrist between those multicultural cities like Miami, which is one of the places that wanted the recent convention or the new convention coming up in twenty one and between white Democrats union workers coal miners that you know, traditionally and places like West Virginia who voted democrat, but feel alienated by their party? And they have not yet found a candidate who is able to cross that divide. In fact, it just seems to be growing wider. So I think that's one thing. The second is this mentality within the democratic field at the moment that they are so convinced that they're going to be Donald Trump. They believe they could run someone that doesn't even have a pulse. So for them the entire game is this primary. So it's going to be brutal. They are gonna savage each other. And the question is can anything, you know, was substance still remain standing at the end of the day for a general election challenge. No, let's switch to the the women in the Democratic Party, Nancy Pelosi's non running for president, but she's speaker of the house and in recent weeks, she's had her hands fill with some of the mischief caused by freshman, congresswoman, AO, see and congresswoman, Omar, and you know, a year ago you, and I think we're talking that she would be elected speaker because she was so tough. And no one could do it. I think that was right. But she's not looking so invincible now and recently she started struck a moderate tone by saying she was again. Impeachment. It wasn't. It wasn't a good idea. Even as the chairman of various house committees are doing everything they can to to prepare the ground for impeachment. But now she's come out with them Samat stuff. You know, right. Getting rid of the electoral college and reducing the voting age to sixteen. I mean, where's this coming from? Let's let's let's start with the sixteen year old thing that Twitter's having a lot of fun with this, isn't it? So I think this is Nancy Pelosi. Look, she's got a possible problem at the moment her strength. Her masterful nece over all the years has been her ability to hurt her office and keep a unified no matter what side of the aisle or not I'll but whatever area you were on the political spectrum within the Democratic Party. She had just an ironclad ability to make people vote together. She doesn't have that anymore. She's got this new progressive base that you just mentioned, and they don't really care about her authority or her leadership as much as they do their own ideas and their own celebrity status. So she's having a lot of trouble keeping people together. That's why I think she's suddenly embracing some of these wackier ideas that they have because she also knows that they're not likely to happen anytime soon. Right. So lowering the voting age to sixteen that is something that gave congress. I mean, I it's never going to happen. He does suggest the MRs Pelosi. She is very much aware that her constituency is ill informed, voter, right. Excluding the soclean. If you ask the average American if they thought it was a good idea to lower the voting age to sixteen. I mean, the Twitter has been having a field day with this with all these people saying when I was sixteen my friends, and I bought a live lobster put it on a leash and walked it around the neighborhood at two AM. So pointing out what the mentality of your average sixteen year old. My my youngest just turned sixteen on Sunday, and my wife, and I are not quite the Taliban. But we battle on everything from you know, how her room the colors to or bathing suit to when she's gonna get her license and permit be idea that she would have an equal vote to ours is quite horrified is horrifying. I think you have to ask yourself in any parent. You know, this is an equally horrifying thought. If you think that a kid is able to vote at age sixteen has. Responsibility than by extension. Presumably, you think that we should lower the drinking age to sixteen they'll be responsible for the drafters of alcohol and cars at that time to of course, not. But you know, this has been a bit of a movement by the left out in the states in particular. I don't know if you know this. But there are now fourteen states out there that already allow kids to Preregister to vote at the age of sixteen and another nine that let you do it at the age seventeen you know. And it's I mean, there's not necessarily anything in theory wrong with that idea that you want kids to between gauged get them excited about it. Get them on track to be part of the whole debate when they are old enough to do so, but the notion of lowering this I think she knows that's not going to happen. And you know, equally we now have candidates out there like Elizabeth Warren embracing getting rid of the electoral college, which is something that resonates on the left. Ooh. Make every vote count. And we should. Have California decide who is the president every year, but you know, again, equally implausible given that would take an amendment to make happen. And just almost impossible will, you know, the back on the sixteen year olds for so it's very interesting to me the Democrats understand their constituents when they're looking to expand its like a legal immigrants ex-felons and sixteen year old. They seem to assume that all these people would be voting democratic on the electoral college. I think that's interesting. You know, the assumption is because Donald Trump won the electoral college that the changes would benefit the Democrats put that's true as you say only if there's a constitutional amendment or all the states agreed to have all their electors go to the winner right for that. If only if all the states agreed or there were constitutional amendment. In the meantime, so far as I understand, the only states that have voted. To commit their electors that way are blue states. Right. So it's conceivable that in say, California, if it were proportionate, I mean, I it's conceivable the Republicans might benefit from this. If it's only blue states, and as you say that the larger thing is is never going to happen. And there's a reason for the electoral college, and it's amazing to me that no one can say we've had this for more than two hundred years. It served us. Well, and the the casual way Democrats talk about tossing things out. Remember, they they I changed rules in the Senate on judges, and it came back to haunt them. Well, right. And I think this gets to the question. Democrats have they're so frustrated with Trump they're so mad about the last election that all these things that they continue to accuse him of doing to sort of undermining our most vital institutions the ones that are actually advocating doing the most damage to our most vital. Institutions are them in response to him, and you know, obviously, the electoral people if you've ever taken a civics class. And if you live in the parts of America while you live in New Jersey, so that might be different parts of America. Where I grew up people take a lot of pride in noting that we are. In fact, a Republic, right? We are Republican states in the states elect the president, and that is the idea behind the electoral college. And there was a lot of thought that went into that by our original, founders of the country, and and their successors, and it's not something you just lightly toss away, it would dramatically change American politics for forever. And it's working as it was intended right in the founder the reason. And the reason we have a Senate with equal representation in a house with proportion reputation. The reason for that is because they wanted a Republic the the wanted democratic vote, but they didn't want a few big states to be able to dominate. All the other states. And there's no way I see that the small states are going to give that up. Oh, no. And if you look at the threshold that you need for a constitutional amendment. What is it? It's two thirds of the states and an again enormous number the assumption is because California's so blue and New York is so blue that you know, the the the Republican like Trump could never win. I'm not so sure about that what it would depend on the candidate in campaigns would be very different, you know, they might not pay attention to a Wisconsin. And they might pay attention more to some of these states. And if it's, you know, if it's proportional or something you could you could lose and still get some votes. You know, if it's going to be the national vote. So it's not clear to me that it's it would work out. Exactly the way they have. And I think it would would destroy what we have also as you say it, it's not really going to happen. So if it's not really going to happen. Why is the speaker of the house? House talking about this. And why is Elizabeth Warren wanted to the candidates why she endorsing it? Well to round back to where we began this conversation. It's grievance politics. Right. There is this in their grievances with the founders. Their grievances with the last election. Okay. And and they're furious that Trump won and in their desire to cast him as an illegitimate president. They know that he won fair and square via the electoral college. So their default argument is yet, but he lost the popular vote, and they use this against George W Bush as well when he was elected. It's a favourite argument for de legitimizing a any candidate, a Republican president in particular who doesn't manage to to get the popular vote, but or a win with a majority of the popular vote, but they want to enrage their voters, right and say look last time your vote didn't really count. And this is how Elizabeth Warren been painting it on as she's talked about this issue saying we want every vote to count and in an essence she's suggesting that if you lived in Mississippi, you're you lived in California where the candidates didn't come an and come and actually campaign to you that you did. Matter as much as voter in Iowa or a high. Oh, that's wrong. And it's all designed to get people energized registered and then to turn out for a democratic candidate. Right. So it looks like it's going to be a busy season for them. Also, MRs Pelosi's trying to quell some fires right in our own caucus with the I mean, one of the challenges she has for her own vote in two thousand twenty is at the the reason she speaker, which is almost always overlooked in the press is that they won some moderate kind of purple seats. You know that had been held by Republicans by some remember all the talk about how Connor lamb was the wave of the future. And now it's a o c. And so I think she has her own challenges in not only defeating Donald Trump, but retaining her speakership. Yeah. And you know, she's she's a wise woman. Okay. Look don't put anything past Nancy Pelosi. And that's why she came out and said, we don't think impeach. That is a very good idea because she understands it that could be a real big backlash, but she's not managing to hold her caucus together. At the moment. And she risks having these other faces that are not hers take over the the public face of the party. And I've never seen her look is weak as she has in the last couple of weeks. You'll see we'll see if she gets them back under control. But I think she understands the stakes here, and if it's AO cease face, it's an her party her policies that are at the front of the party Democrats are in a much weaker position in two thousand twenty two New York. Those recent polls showing Eos is the one people blame the most for Amazon pulling out of the deal. Now you and I didn't like lot of the terms of the deal when the kind of subsidies in the tax tax friendly policies just for this company. But it was a big loss for the state and embarrassing. It's interesting that she's kind of the face of that. Now, one of the problems, I think miss closely has is not only are these people far more left than she's been if. If they don't care about the usual trade-offs in other words, getting a seat on some committee. So that their amendment gets included in some Bill. That's you know, that's a traditional quid pro quo with the speaker. They don't care about that. For example, of congresswoman Omar doesn't care about her seat on the foreign relations committee, then they're much freer to make their statements. Right and go Roque. And that's because she doesn't have she can't quite give them the same pay off that she might give you know, more traditional candidate. And and they're going to get the attention every time. I mean, if you get if you go back to the democrat convention when the delegates booed, the idea of Jerusalem as a capital of Israel, and God there, I think the next convention is going to be a lot harder to do because of two things to people. I think that could quell those fires Mrs Clinton, and and Barack Obama. I think both the they're not there and. So there's no one with the authority. I think that could quell those fires and and get people to pull together. So I'm just wondering what their conventions going to be like it. I think one thing that's happening here that sometimes we talk about obliquely, but it gets missed as we're in the middle of this revolutionary change, in the way, people communicate and media. And I'm reminded of a really good podcast. I listened to recently that talked about this young congressman decades ago who came to Washington his name was Newt Gingrich, and he discovered the power of this thing called C-SPAN, and it was his camera on the floor, and he would go and speak to it. And it would get broadcast all these Americans televisions. And it was a new way for individual congressmen to reach out and suddenly get a national audience and this correspondent as well. With the rise of talk radio and suddenly all of these influential people like Rush Limbaugh able to reach millions of people we have a similar phenomenon going on now that this younger generation of politicians, and in particular, the AOC's in the Ilhan Omar's understand which is Facebook, Twitter, social media, you know, inst-. Livestream videos while you're cooking in your house. And you're right. They don't care about the traditional methods of how you rise up the democratic field. You you go down you do the hard work. You make a Bill you get a better seat on a better committee. They have instant fame. So they don't need Nancy Pelosi to give them any of that. And I don't share. I'm not sure anyone's really reckoned with how that changes fully Washington will or the or convention drafting its platform. I mean, if you're some of these freshmen. Congressman persons that have issues are more left wing than the than the speaker. Or then the party? I mean, it's very easy to imagine the congresswoman going around the convention on the outside just tweeting their displeasure, you know, two legions of fans complaining about it. That's going to be a very hard thing to bring together. You would think that the hatred for Donald Trump would be a unifier, but is not yet clear that it will be to that extent. Oh, no. An imagine for instance, Bill, and I think this is going to be interesting to watch. Let's just say a Biden did get in. And let's just say he did manage to thread that needle and he ran more as a kind kinda, you know, populist in the mold of Donald Trump. But on the left catering to a lot of those white working class voters out there. But then you get him. And and he's let's say he's a nominee. Me. And you've got to put together this platform is you said and all of these activists demanding a platform. That's completely at odds. Put perhaps with what he's actually running on it. It could be really interesting. He could also be true for Kamala Harris, or Bernie and someone who is left wing could be deemed insufficiently left wing. You know, as you point out, some some. I mean, there may be no end to what they what they want. So it's not necessarily just if a Joe Biden is nominated it. It's clear. I mean, if you look at the attacks now Bernie Sanders, it's clear that you know, some people find him insufficiently pure. He was you know, he was as a Senator pro guns because his constituency was I mean the question is just if anyone is going to be pure enough. And if they're gonna make purity the test rather than beating Donald Trump, which is I think what democratic voters want. I don't see how anyone is pure enough. And you know, even the ones that they have now. Democrats would be wise to look back in history. Some of their very liberal candidates. They've run in the past and how many of them actually became president. Okay. We'll you've been listening to Potomac watch from the Wall Street Journal. I'm Bill mcgurn filling in for Paul zhigo. And we've been talking with Kim strassel today on democratic candidates. Thank you very much.
