This Is the Warning Shot! With Emma Jo Morris
"Welcome back to Emma Joe Morris one on one with me. Sebastian gorka. I need to ask you so many things we have to get you back. So many things I want to ask you, but first things first, given everything that you've uncovered, the thing that blows my mind apart from the corruption, the ambassador, the constant lying from all of the bidens. None of these people are top draw. None of them are smart. None of them are sharp. None of them are street smart. They're crazy crackheads like hunter, who takes films of himself with whores and crack and gets caught, crashing a rental car with his dead brother's attorney general badge in it and his crank pipeline. I mean, stuff you wouldn't believe in a novel. How do these people get away with it? Why does it take until you the poston and Rudy? Because there should have been detritus of corruption for decades. Yeah, I mean, I call them over educated fools. Good. 'cause I think that that's what kind of educated and dumb. Yeah, they go to Harvard. They go to Yale, whatever. And they're not exactly what you said. They're not street smart, but they can't. It's a miracle that they tie their shoes in the morning. Some of these guys, it looks like that. And I think how do they get away with it? I think it's saying that Trump made clear through his entire time in the white as if there's anything that there was to learn about Trump's time in The White House is that there's a club. Yeah. And if you're not in that club, you can't play with them. But if you're in the club. You can do no wrong. And there's no repercussion for anything. I mean, we exposed work that was being done while Joe Biden was vice president. And there's testimony in public from people who were involved in these deals. 20 public ski and Miranda writes about this and he said it in public, he said to them, why are you doing this? How are you doing this? This is like there's something really wrong about this. He was basically brought in to kind of button up their deals because they had no experience in any of this. So Tony was brought in with experience right up their contracts. Veterans. And he comes in and he realizes what's going on, and he says to Jim Biden, how why would you do this? How are you doing this? And his brother. Yes. And Joe's brother says to Tony, plausible deniability.

United Airlines Pilot Placed on Unpaid Leave After Being Granted Exemption From Vaccine Mandate
"I am going to be joined in this segment by captain sherry walker and captain Dave Morgan of airline employees for health freedom. They happen to be United Airlines pilots, and they are pretty good at what they do. 7 87 international 7 67, these guys are experts. They keep us safe. They make the skies friendly. They get us from point a to point B and now they are going to tell us their story about their experience with these vax mandates that have been spreading across the country. There is news today that osha has now at least temporarily sidelined this plan of vax mandates, pending circuit court, judgments that have fully put a stop to it, at least for the time being. So we're going to keep monitoring that. Dave Morgan, thank you so much for joining us, captain sherry walker. Thank you so much for joining us. Tell us a little bit about what you guys have been going through the floor is yours. I've got some tape, by the way, that we can play at some point in the segment of the CEO of United. I know you're not speaking on behalf of United here, but I do have, I think it's partner to what we're discussing. So I do want to get to that, but tell us what you've been going through. Tell us a little bit about your background. Are you guys getting paid right now? I went on unpaid leave a week ago on Friday. I'm a pilot for United Airlines. I was hired in continental airlines in 1998, so I've been here 23 and a half years. We've spent many years out in the island of Guam for Micronesia and three years ago, just before the pandemic, we moved from Guam to the great state of Arizona, and I'm on a fly 7 87 out of San Francisco. Pandemic came down the pipe and we pressed on. We are the front lines that we're willing to do whatever it took. What we are team of many, many people, and I'm just representing I'm a voice representing thousands who I wish also could have this opportunity to speak. But we work through this thing. And with a really can do cooperative spirit of let's get through this because I was also a pilot during 9 11. I remember that vividly. We worked through that. And then suddenly, on the back side of this, here comes this vaccine mandate. And those of us who pressed on and made the wheels turn airplanes fly, the people who were able to fly for point a to we were there to get them there. And all of a sudden, Scott Kirby says, we're not safe anymore. You're done. So as of last Friday, I've been placed on unpaid leave, and they've basically cut my cord. I have no insurance, no benefits. I can't retire. I have no access to anything. They have shut me down and to make it worse. I can't pass travel. I can't even jump seat on other airline jump seats. So I'm scrambling right now to see what I'm going to do with insurance. I have three boys, 12, 16 and

Where Is the Reasonable Balance Between Safety and Liberty?
"We were about to get onto an elevator of a building in Boise Idaho. And the elevator doors open and the woman's wearing a mask, which is fine. I've never attacked anyone for wearing a mask. And she says, excuse me, do not get on this elevator. Go take the next one. And I knew what she was saying. She wanted the elevator to herself. And one of our other team members was like, why? And she said, because none of you are masked. You see that? You see the way this works now? It's not enough that she wants to wear a mask. She wants to force other people so that she can also feel safe. And for her, the most important thing in her life is being safe. Being safe is important. It is an element of human life. There are risks that I am not willing to take. There are some things I tell my team, I'm not gonna skydive. I'm not going to bungee jump. I don't think that's that dangerous though. Bungee jumping? It could be, I guess. Depends where you do it. No skydiving, no bungee jumping, no more skiing, the last time I went skiing, everyone said I had a great time. Woke up in a hospital. True story. Not doing that again. There's just some things I'm just not going to do. The risk reward ratio, I don't want to end up kind of paralyzed in the waist down and be like, you know, my entire life has been disrupted, but at least I got a good thrill bungee jumping. Like, it's just the reward, and I'm not sure we have a lot of skydivers listening. And that's fine. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it's worth it. For me, I've decided not to do it. So I'm not someone that is a risk seeker for the sake of doing it. However, I want to live a full life and walking around with a mask while natural immunity is set into well over a 100 million people. I would imagine this woman who got very angry at us was vaccinated, it just kind of begs the question of where is the reasonable balance between safety and

The Left Wants You to Think They're More Powerful Than You... They're Not
"Folks this is a huge thing The fight is coming to your door There's simply no way to the knock is coming soon Whether literal or figurative the knock is coming at your door soon By totalitarian psycho losers who want you fired they want you canceled They want your kid in a mask They want you to stick something in your arm whether you want to do it or not These people are not kidding around They're playing for keeps and the only way to fight back is going to have to be with sacrifice and solidarity Just like they did it when they fought the Soviets whose ideology was no different than the people in charge now When they fought the Soviets in Poland and eventually took over the country and eventually won But it's not just about the leaders in southwest The people doing this now It's about the followers too And it proves my point that eventually Over time people who have been canceled people who've had mandates shut down their throat eventually they realize as other people speak out and more followers come out They start to realize that they are in fact the 51% and not the minority And then they all look at each other and go why have we been listening to these diploids the whole time We're in the majority You know damn the torpedoes full speed ahead They start moving because there's no torpedoes The torpedoes were fake It's solid ski's rule all the time on the left It's not what you have it's what the enemy thinks you have And us where their enemies the solo linsky people where the left this enemies they want us to believe they're more powerful than they are They aren't whether it's the Dave Chappelle thing I'll get into that Bill Maher or other people on the left they are starting to figure out that the leftist cancel culture mandate loving totalitarian former Soviets They are in fact the minority We are the majority and it's damn well time we started acting
"ski" Discussed on The Ski Podcast
"On the site, their slopes and ski down 8 o'clock in the evening in the moonlight, I think it's a wonderful thing to do. Whether it's allowed, I think it'll be allowed, I think it will be slightly restricted. Yeah, I mean talking about the owners of apres ski bars, a mutual friend of ours, Andre Russell, who owns their bar Kiba in town to play self had many great evenings. I noticed I don't often go on to Facebook, but he had a post on Facebook a little while ago, which was really a kind of lament to the end of season worker life. And I think there have been a lot of challenges in relation to Brexit and recruitment. I wondered what your insight would be on that? Yeah, it's a minefield, really. I'm not sure the podcast long enough to have all my company to lose. No, the obvious fallout of Brexit is quite quite bad in terms of UK citizens being able to work in Europe. There's been a few things I think in the press that there's the option to be able to do it in France, but that's still a very long winded and quite expensive way with no certainty or guarantee at the end of it. I've actually getting these work permits. We've got the same situation in Austria where they're only issue issuing a certain number of permits for seasonal workers and UK now falls under the third national third nation country or whatever they call it that not part of the EU. So not entitled to come and work there, which obviously takes away tons of jobs. We employ about 40 to 50 people in the Alps each winter. And this year, we're only looking for people with EU passports because it's just such a long, complicated, quite expensive process to go just to get a work permit. And then to be told that they're only going to give work permits probably to qualified qualified applicants so like the chefs, for example, that have an actual qualification for your sort of Shelley host, which is obviously a really important job. That we employ for. They don't class it as a recognized qualification in a job. So they're probably only going to be giving out permits for chefs, maybe maybe managers, maybe people with a particular skill set. But otherwise it's going to be quite tricky. And obviously more expensive for UK based operators to go about it. It almost sounds like the travel situation. Every country seems to have their own rules in place. There's no consistency across all of Europe, which makes it difficult for a company like yours in a gloomy drive away or employing people in France and in austere as well. So a lot of challenges are overall. Well, you know, I hope that with as with the travel within COVID, which has become simpler, maybe we find that as time passes being a third world country in the eyes of a year or third category country in terms of the EU, it will become easier to employ people. Hopefully, Andy you'll come back and give us some snow reports during the season and that data somehow things are going. Love too. Yep. Excellent. Okay, I'm just going to move on now. Regular listeners are recall I hosted a forum at the recent ski launch event for the industry last month. And one of our sessions had a focus on the Olympics. At Graham bell and Emily sarsfield with me, both of whom have been guests on the podcast before. Now the sound quality isn't so good on this, but I think it's still worth listening to. So.
Ep4: Unboxing The Mystery Box Film Challenge
"I can't really stressing enough. Anyone can participate in the mystery. Box film challenge you. Don't have to be in scranton wilkes-barre you don't have to be in northeast. Pennsylvania you can be anywhere in participate. We've made it so we've made it really streamlined. Like keeping announcing the items online. And that's because of the pandemic it's like okay if you wanna do a challenge during a pandemic how we're gonna do this like we don't want to give out physical boxes and it's really not that conducive if you want to grow it so announcing the items was the best way to do it and it's it's really easy to it's just like people just have to go find the items if they have them in their house or they had the borrow him or if you wanna buy 'em yourself that's that's a really good we do. We're on facebook on instagram. We'll have a facebook group so you could talk to people this where we usually put the list of the requirements items prompts on. There's usually a document i to facebook page on the facebook group in the video is always there when we announced but this is the first year that the mystery box film challenge is on film freeway. That was a decision that i made that phone. Freeways really the premier place to find film festivals film challenges and i wanted just to get more is on the challenge because last year had lake. We had i think twenty one sign ups and we got twelve films back so usually are ratio is lake. We get a lot of sign ups in usually we get about half of them to submit a film which was amazing during a pandemic all types of films different genres like first time filmmakers season professionals to it's it's everybody you can do it. You can totally participate in this challenge. It's so much fun. And it's just a great way to connect with people in network with filmmakers in your area and asking for help and we're always here he always email us if you need help or have any questions but yeah all our items in prompts and requirements and specifications are on our film freeway page. If you searched the mystery box challenge on film freeway and like i said before you have two months to make film they need to be wanna ten minutes in laying that includes your credit entitles. They can't go beyond ten minutes Ill should align with the pg thirteen rating. We don't allow our crm teen films. These are short films are not gonna be feature films. So it's pretty good for that. And then you have your technical specifications as well and we do the emission on phil freeway as well. We used to have people email us. They're finish phones but we're not doing that. Everything is going to be through film freeway We do have a submission fee this year all past years. The film challenge has been free but with Just doing the challenge. It's a lot of it's like. We want to do a lot. More marketing in the marketing costs money. And we want to give her filmmaker swag like shirts and stickers and It better prizes in that costs money so like we have a regular deadlines mission is five dollars and then we have a late deadline for this year. So regular deadline for this year's film challenges november tenth. You still have time You can do a filming day you can edit and day and do whatever and are late. Deadline is november thirtieth and that will be a ten dollar fee early We kind of Wanted to do the challenge between like late summer and fall on we try to pretty close to one the northeast. Pennsylvania film festival has a festival. The festival usually is in march But it's just a pain the butt film in the winter. that can't be done. It's just a pain in the butt to film in the winter so we had the challenge earlier this year so it was. We kicked it off on september first skinner complete in the end of november to give people that end of summer fall timeframe which is still pretty nice to film. It's actually unseasonably warm now. Still which is awesome northeast pennsylvania. So i hope everyone can participate in the film challenge. It's a really great challenge to be creative and to just get yourself out there and start making films it's a real catalyst for people on lake like this is like if you wanna skies the limit if you want to do any type of film you want and have all the requirements inc for the challenge. I wanted to participate in the challenge. One year i actually wrote my script. And i just couldn't get anyone to get enough pete. I couldn't get a crew and actors together to do it. But i was like i'm going to keep the script and i'm gonna keep working on it and i'm gonna eventually produce it so i wrote a script. Siro my script for the mystery box challenge. This call fallout. And so i kept working on it and working on the script editing. I had my colleagues rita the detailer with me at lunch. They gave me feedback. So i just kept the script that i wrote for the mystery box kept working working working at and i gave it to my friend bridget. She edited it for me. Give me feedback. I kept ending it in editing. It got to a point where i thought it was good. And i just didn't then the pandemic again the pandemic hits and i just haven't i have not produced the film yet but i do want to. It's not really conducive to film during the pandemic. Because it's all takes place in a basement so really. The premise of fallout is. There's a group of friends who are hunkering down for an impending nuclear attack. While one of their friends is outside could be dead could not be dead Who knows and they're really freaked out in steph happens in. I don't want to give too much away. But i decided to submit that script to a couple screenplay competitions recently on film freeway in. It's gotten right now. It's gotten six official selections for six different vessels which is pretty awesome Just to get it out there in get it recognized which is pretty cool and it's like all right. This is really something. So i really want to film this. But it's like don't have. It's a catalyst. The mystery box film challenges are really creative. way to really get into filmmaking. Answer really start making something i i mean. I find a lot of people even myself included you. Stop yourself sometimes. If you wanna make film you stop yourself. It's like even. I wanna participate this year. Even though i'm the organizer. I still want to participate in writing my scripts and like i know what i to ride. And it's like okay. Who am i gonna get. Who is like the crew and stuff like that and making it simple so we can get it done in a day and i can edit it on time and get it in. So it's it's in own if you don't end up if you write something you end up not making it to the deadline to keep your script and keep reworking it. I mean you know. They asked for help. Get your parents involved. If the if you need to be can't find anyone you know you don't need to have a professional camera you can. Have someone help you edit or you can try editing yourself.

Lessons I Learned After COVID Killed My Conference
"The first lesson. I learned is that. Don't use optimism as your guide meaning that you know. We were super optimistic. That we're going to still the conference when we went into lockdown. You know we didn't realize how long lockdown was going to be but It's always good to have a disaster plan. It's funny because i know this in my software company we always have these. What if conversations and Center standard operating procedures. But we need to have the same in the conference we need to think. Hey what if is in happened way before it would give me more time to have options or to Make some changes provide some options to the attendees but basically when i found out we're three weeks out from the conference so i had limited choices to what i can do. Second i learned was. I knew in that moment. The best thing i can do is i need to communicate. I need to communicate with my people. The attendees And i just needed to make sure that they're included in any decision and that i let them know what's going on so they don't feel like they're in the dark. I was very conscious. These people trusted me. They give me their money. I want to make sure that they know that. I got their back and that you know there are some options. I'm looking at when we actually had a discussion on that call before the cancellation was confirmed. Because the accession of lockdown of what are some options. And what. I was pleasantly surprised by how open people were there were like. Hey we totally get it. I understand they're all entrepreneurs zeno how these things happen and They presented some ideas from creative ideas. I didn't think of as alternatives creative ideas in terms of different dates. Different locations Because it became clear that this is not going to happen This oscar will not happen in the winter at least this year because The lockdown will extend past the winter season. So the idea of going skiing together is just not going to happen so by having open communication. Just putting your cards on the table. Hey these are options. This is will happen.

Was you know fat skiing early. Sept- pistol days. What else is around. Talk one ten one twenty. And when when i kind of started playing we reverse cam and rocker. That was when everything really started to make sense. Because i was pretty much the only brand really that light stiff skis. He i liked. I had a lot of friends early on were identities in canada early on in my life so i i had a lot of friends in north america as well and canadians. Just love. straight ski. So let's case brought out early on with stiff and straight and when you've got reverse cambe for example reverse gamba is basically the shape of soft skied. Deforms too so it will flight. So if you press a scheme with reverse camber you don't actually need to flex any further the any reason you want to flex any further is to make it a little bit forgiving. So it's not kicking the back and we'll talk paps Now to visualize what you talking now. In fact shimmer kind of in the lead of innovation through all of that time with the different elements bringing whether it's a the width of the ska- or the rockers or reverse camera cetera.
