Sam Stone questions Mayor Kate Gallego's latest claims of morgue beds being overfilled to capacity during virus crisis.

"As someone who is not a native of the Great State of Arizona I can tell you for years with the perception of the state is. or at least say was. Now that I'm living here. My goodness I absolutely love it, but I can look and I can see that. When a prominent members of this date, prominent citizens say or do controversial things I know all the spin. That's going to be put on this great state. In the center ring of the conservative circus. We have SAM stone. He is a chief of staff for city councilman. Saudi Cecile and Sam a what's going on with Mayor Gago can anyone trust anything? She says anymore. Right now are you kidding me? Heck No. I, she keeps saying things that are just absolutely crazy, and she's been saying. Since the start of this pandemic, she started out back in March or early April talking about seven forty seven worth of people in Phoenix dying every day. And she just keeps going further and further down the Raboteau. What's the motivation? I mean at some one. You would have to think you know okay. You know what this is embarrassing. And telling all these lies. I get caught in these lies, but she'd just continues to lie. Well! James. I can't speak to her personal motivation. I'm this I can only speculate so it being one of two things essentially. I, she's been the biggest alarmist in Phoenix and in Arizona since this started, and so to a certain extent I think her. Political future is tied to the depths of this virus. If it's not that bad, if we come out of this and and things are okay She's made a lot of statements that she's GonNa Answer to. on the other side I think she takes that sort of. south view of I'm going to scare people I'm GonNa tell them things that maybe aren't necessarily true. I'M GONNA. Tell them what I think. They need to hear to get them to do what I think they need to do and to me. That's an incredibly condescending point of view, but it's clearly one that that has certain advocates in the medical community and apparently city hall. Okay, well, the latest lad does. She told she went on television and she talked about how we haven't hospital here. that does not have any more more beds, and so they had to hire a refrigerated truck to come over there, and that certainly is not or or or let me ask you Sam Stone. DO WE HAVE BODIES PILING UP IN PHOENIX? No we don't James. We don't I. Mean Look. You're having fifty some people. Do you know a high of you? When average at fifty some people a day are dying of Kobe and a lot of those people would be dying in this course of time. Anyway when you're talking about people who are in you know long term and long term care facilities that kind of thing they generally tend to live a few months, so a lot of those folks would be dying anyway and thirty to one hundred and fifty people die in Arizona every single day. So we you're telling me. This is overwhelming. It's not every single summer every single summer. A handful of our hospitals and our in our county mortgage have to call out these refrigerator trucks as a backup plan because of all the heat this. Happens every year. In a sense of ring. Circus we have. We have SAM stone. He is the chief of staff. Sowed ASENSIO. I thank you very much for sharing that because this is something that's happening. It's a routine and you have the mayor here trying to use it. and fear porn to scare people. Do you think it ever occurs to the mayor that these scare? Tactics of hers might actually be hurting her city. Be Hurting Phoenix. I think when you're the smartest person in the room. You just have to assume that you're correct. James it works better that way. Yeah I mean I think clearly that the you know that's one of the drivers of this. in a look at the end of the day I think the best thing to do is to give people the real information about what's going on. Let them know what their risks are, and tell them what you know what we recommend. They should do and then leave it up to people to make good decisions for themselves, which I believe that people in Arizona are perfectly capable of, but it's clear that we have some politicians here including our mayor including Hairston cinema who disagree and think they need to be making decisions.

"Most cash offer companies pay cash for homes have stopped providing cash offers. So if you need a cash offer on your home and need a quick sale call Carol Royse right now Carol Royse with Keller Williams Realty East Valley. Your valley-wide team is still offering great cash offers to homeowners who need them don't hesitate call Carol Royse right now at eight. Oh. Seven seven six, fifty to thirty one or go to Carol has the CASH OFFERS DOT COM. That's Carol has the CASH OFFERS DOT COM you're listening to the conservative circus I am your ringmaster, James t Harris you'll course b. l. m. Antifa the talk of the town and most a lot of cities in the country right now well, Phoenix is no different. I'm not sure if you're aware of this. But we have black lives matter there's a street Niro. That is a moving forward. they had a gofundme me they're trying to raise money for it. Let me see here they were trying to raise forty, five, hundred dollars. They've already raised fifty, two, hundred dollars. They WANNA put a Black Lives Matter Plaza right here in Phoenix and to help us understand where this is in the process we have Sam stone he's a chief of staff for city councilman, Sal Decio. He's in the censoring of the conservative circus and I guess I shouldn't be surprised Sam stone but I still disappointed that we add the left these that are probably going to get their way with a black lives plaza right here in the valley. Yeah. It looks like they are and they're getting a lot of assistance from councilwoman Laura. Past war in particular who's you know right now running for reelection and Katelyn black lives matter in what they're talking about chains they WANNA take over Jefferson Street Jefferson downtown. And repaint a huge stretch of it but this. Beal I'm whatever. in in them some you know portraits of some of their heroes in the street. In the street. I think that's going to you know to give it a couple of weeks a cars driving over that's just going to marvel. Data aside. What are you talking about? You're going to shut down Jefferson for weeks. So these people can sit there and paint this garbage. You gotta be kidding me one of the things. I'm curious about you know in New York City in Washington DC these were plazas that were sponsored by city government. This seems to be of some folks who raise some money and then got permission. Seeking to get permission from the city to do this, which means it is not very well funded. No so this is different than a lot of those cities right where you had like the strong mayor her you know this this year. I'd call it the dictatorial mayor system where they just decided they were going to spend taxpayer money. Thank goodness scenic still have some commonsense. Our City staff has not gone completely crazy and when I talked to them about this, they said look we're not gonNA pay for this. They gotta pay for it. If Council approves that we gotta go along with it, you know I mean we we can't tell council no and at the end of the day their concern and if a great one and it's been my concern with all. Of these things once you allow one group to do this if you're being reasonable if you're being fair, you've got to allow all groups. So my question is, when are we going to go out there and paint the Blue Lives Matter Road here James I'm thinking twenty four camelback for me but you know you know what that would be absolutely fantastic. No the thin Blue Line blue lives matter that would be a great counter. But for both of these, you know what I think we would be able to raise money faster than be lms. Well, how ever Sam Stone I think the response or the reality is both of those street science are going to be vandalized. Soon not even before the paint dries you're gonNA. Have people throwing paint all over just like you're seeing in Washington DC and just like you're seeing in New York City. Yeah. I totally agree with you. I mean, I'm being facetious about thing we paint anything on our streets because as far as I'm concerned, this is just turning our roads into get another forum for this political battle. That's. Stretching across America right now and come A-. Can we just drive to work and we just drive to the store without having it be a political journey. It's getting ridiculous. Got Sam Stone. He's the chief of Staff City councilman sailed. He's centering. You know you're absolutely right about that and I want to point something out to we see these big liberal run cities across the country having violence problems having these These are supposed to be peaceful protests the volve nightly in some places into rioting that has not been the case here in the valley even though in places like though Phoenix Scottsdale to a great degree and this lefty leadership what makes this area different than other areas that are seeing wanted violence? Well I, you still have a couple of Republicans who are an office here in the city of Phoenix who have been able to fight back against a lot of this. And we're Democrats know that if they go around spending money for these type of activities and supporting these folks, they're going to get called out. You know right here on your show and plenty of other places by people like me and people like the Guy I worked for counseling, Co and and gym wearing the other folks that are there. So you know we're not as far left as they are, and that's been a blessing to Phoenix. It gives our police chief the ability to do her job unlike chief and Dr near, every other cities. So you know we've got some elections coming up in November and then. The runoff stressor in March these are important important elections for everybody in the valley because as Phoenix goes the valley goes most cash offer companies who pay cash for homes have stopped providing cash offers. So if you need a cash offer on your home and need a quick sale call Carol royse right now. Carol Royse with Keller Williams Realty East Valley Valley valley-wide team is offering great cash offers to homeowners who need them don't hesitate call Carol Royse right now at four, eight, zero, seven, seven, six, fifty to thirty, one or go to Carol has the cash offers dot com that's carol has the cash offers dot com.

Carolina. But we're not from. Arkansas. So. Not. To disparage anybody from Arkansas. We. Love our. Not. Quite. Quite from far enough south for that, actually be a sign. I, it's. True. But who's our first across cruised episode? Isn't it? Well? Technically. Yes. So if you guys will notice, there might be a little bit of difference in audio quality. That you guys are used to so sorry because we're actually having to conduct this on zoom which we've never done before. But is never done zoom before and show everybody because this is only the second time. I've ever been on this program how technically imposition I am when when when L. Day told me hey, we were do this over zoom. I. Said Okay I'll make my wife may there be zoom my phone Yeah. You must've had like you didn't get your first cellphone until you were like, what thirty six it was like. Yeah I haven't had I haven't had them for very long. I had a flip phone until about five years. I mean you got your first phone two, thousand twelve seriously. Didn't you? It was it was a little before that but not much.

I did upset with you impact in Ezio when you were at home for Christmas in. So having gone back and listen to that recently, I'm trying to figure out what Ernie the return invite was it like the lack of preparation or the ulker vocal policies or the inappropriate jokes or the fact that I was drunk by the end of it I'm trying to figure out what exactly make you go like? Yeah let's let's let's. Let's have him back. We're you know we've actually talked to the network and they thought that it was a great idea that we do it with like family like because there's not really a a show based on family and I think they're really liked the dynamic that median you and will bring to the table and modules was MATZEC. That's interesting because my guess was lots of people said No. Now actually. Look. A long list of people's names that had XS throw them in she was like. My brother. Yeah. Yeah, it's. And as we go into this, I'm just going to point out and everybody I'm having a beverage It is a Ginger Ale, and vodka and wage of Lemon and. I'm not just drinking to be drinking. This is relevant to the episode I am willing to suffer for my craft. Question boy us just suffer with every sale was that with the preparation of the drink correct because that's apparently what makes it. Yes yes. It was a vodka and Ginger Ale with a wedge of lemon drop in from six inches above the glass but not squeezed does with the power to make this particular beverage called a handsome Johnny. Well. It's goes into it. That's that's. The lemon that's. Apparently the dropping the limit from from exactly six inches above the glass or the Yeti low ball tumbler my cases apparently key. Okay and so for our listeners just so you know. I don't drink at all and my brother makes up for it. You. Might. My sister, my sister, my mother drink but I. Just feel like I need to you know take up the slack. To support fine American companies like Tito's. Well, okay. So Just a quick satellite before we jump actually jump into dystopic. One of the finest music journalist in the world is a Peter Cooper. He's actually from South Carolina and I've I've met eight or an interview several times but he told me a story wants about getting to go to say packers game at Lambeau big sports fans. So that's kind of a bucket list item. And so the people who was with up there took him. And the tail getting there apparently starts very early in the morning. In Green Bay Wisconsin, and so he's sitting around a campfire because it's like it's like Wisconsin freezing and crap because it's Wisconsin in December and this guy pulls out like a giant growl or and he pulls out a bottle of southern. Comfort. Turns it, up over the Tumbler. Then, he takes a can of Sun drop and pours it on top of that. been paid and Peter Said Buddy I'm not I'm not judging or anything but. What are you? What are you doing and the guy said Oh I told my wife I only have two drinks today. This is one. I don't like. Hope also told his wife. He's going to have a severe case of tooth decay because she. Yeah all. These that makes every every part of my adamy her yes. Oh. God. We found squirt today in a store. We didn't buy my we saw. squirt will never sponsor this show. Out Because I, that that guy had a Casal jail gosh. So. I should also tell our audience before we jump in. This is the longest intro we've ever had. I'm sorry and I'm also I'm also not going to edit this episode if I can help it because I don't have the time. Good. Purest form. Harry. So today for our topic a for this series of four episodes we're actually going to be talking about people that we have sadly lost due to covid nineteen I. Know that we you know we lost. This is unprecedented times and we do not WanNa make light of anyone's passing. We certainly want to shine a light on four of people that we feel like made a huge impact in their. Of. Their genres we will be covering today we have TJ twos of subjects, mines, Broadway, and country, and then a this year will the thrill is jazz for accurate. We will be covering for completely separate genres of people and today T J two, who are you covering? we'll because Tom. For those who did not catch the patent SEO episode those who don't know I'm I'm a newspaper writer for my You know like pay the bills job not that I'm not handsomely renumerated doing this podcast but So I actually wrote like a newspaper he kinda lied to it. So I kind of to who it is. Okay. When and just like go ahead and read it. Head Sir Take it away. All right a when Bonnie rait signed the words I am an old woman and to her classic Song Angels Angel From Montgomery it sounded so personal and so introspective that many fans probably assume that she wrote the song for sales but she In Fact Dorado was not old and wasn't even a woman, the lyrics were pinned by a man in his early twenties at the time. that. Doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, but it also doesn't make sense. For a career of one of America's greatest songwriters could be launched by at movie salt, Papua It doesn't make sense for one artist who have inspired as diverse group is Bob Dylan a bit. Midler. The black keys casey must graves Johnny Cash Arielle How to songs that often tackled issues and view the world through a cynical prism help into lengthy Bill Murray wants down himself. How to someone who barely reach puberty write a song about divorce out of someone who wasn't there right. One of the definitive songs about the plight of Vietnam vets and how to someone barely in his twenties right one of the most lauded songs ever about elder abandoned. It takes someone willing to listen and observe more than Paulk. It takes humility. It takes empathy. It took a man named. John, prime. It's pretty bad ass wasn't. It is. Senior script Jan I was astounded at the web of musical connections. This guy had it's yeah, and this is this is a guy who if you just Listen to the radio and just listen to what's popular. You may not even be familiar with them, but you have definitely heard songs. He's written that have been covered by other people and you. You've certainly heard people that have been influenced by all. So John Prime was born on October tenth nineteen, forty six in the Chicago suburb of Maywood. For those that are familiar with his music but not his life story necessarily that location might come as a surprise given his subtle but very noticeable vocal. And on his early records, it wasn't subtle. Actually it was bakery notable. It was a hillbilly kind of like I am. That's after the fact that his parents, William Mason prime who was a tool and die maker who served as the president of the local US W and his mother Verna, Valentine homemaker, both hailed from paradise. Kentucky. The family which included three other brothers would often visit Paradise during the summers. Fines use those occurrences. Thank you can action plan. Yeah. They would often visit Paradise during the summers of his youth experiences would inspire the Song Paradise which would turn up on his nineteen seventy-one debut album. Unlike meaning artists, especially a lot of the artists that you seem to have covered on the rock and Roll Heaven Podcast Day prime early life was not marked by turmoil or is. A lot of times out of turmoil. Bad situations great artist created. It kind of seems to be a fame that's run through a lot of your podcast. Grapple with like someone who had a half decent childhood, right? But parents had great errands and he genuinely loved his family inside to use like pictures of them on the table on stage when performing up until the end of his life. was sweets yeah. Hey described his mother's being a great storyteller and said his dad shared that trait after quote he drank a few beers madman. His father was an avid country music fan. So prime was raised listening to the likes of Jimmie Rodgers, the Carter, family Hank Williams and other stars of the Grand Ole opry. There was some musical family lineage as his grandfather who was a Kentucky Coal Miner on a part time preacher had formerly played with Merle Travis who co wrote a ring a fire for Johnny cash and Everley, who I think was the either the father of the grandfather of the emily brothers yeah. Prin remembers listening to a remembered listening to music on a beat up old radio that would be mentioned a many years later in the Song Sam Stone that his dad would point towards the south on Saturday nights to get a better reception of the Grand Opry W. Out of Nashville allow. Even during the week, his dad would turn on that radio have a bear in port johnny as his mother called Him Orange Soda. Quote. He talked to me about politics and stuff here. All was six years old prime remembered. His Dad would often take in brothers to a bar. Dad would listen to the JUKEBOX and drank a couple of cold ones while the patrons gave the kids Nichols to play the pinball machine wheels. So this is like an idyllic childhood it almost sounds line produces what? Our parents used to do 'cause lying mom would take us to the summit which was a bar and they had jerry t and video games and they've let his flying. Yup She byles Mozzarella sticks and and let us play Pacman. Wasn't the crack Corcoran barrel the court. Yeah Yup corgan barrel was. And then Campbell's truckstop like that is why. Like the repertory used to go through that phase where he would take us to the hospital. The hospital? With eight at the hospital. 'cause he's never been. Really good. Yeah. So we were basically raised on like unsalted mashed potatoes. Like like all all they would serve hospital cafeteria. Yet from the it was It was a we were fed. That's the bill. On by prins own recollection, he was a very poor student in school. But even from a young age, he had a knack that most good ride share of big oddly observant and noticing things that a lot of people looked. He said quote our would go to class and just stare at something like a button on the teachers sure. He wants told rolling stone she might as well have been up there barking like a dog I'd have no idea what she was actually talking about. Surprisingly, and this is just kind of a little throw in product sale gymnastics much like you did day. which is, which is something he took up at the suggestion of his older brother, Doug. Franz. It was something. He had no natural ability in whatsoever but was nonetheless something that he did. Well. When he could also do well from an early age was write songs in particular despite not having a lot of interest in school books when he was, there's where the every everything you've said so far I've been like this. Is Me the story of L. D.. By tingey to. But I want you to really listen to this when he was fourteen years old proud wrote the song sour grapes and the frying Pan, both of which ended up on his second studio album diamonds in the rough ten years later. Crass Oh so not yet old enough to have a driver's permit he panned the lines. I couldn't care less if I didn't have a friend accept people would say I was crazy a wooden work because i? Don't need the money except the same folks would say I was lazy say Sour Grapes you can laugh and stare say sour grapes but I don't care. And I came home from work this evening there was a note in the front. Am it said fixture on Supper Bay by runoff the fuller? Brush man. Missed away she used to yell at me the way she used to cuss in moon, and if I ever go out and get married again, I'll never leave my wife that. was four frigging teen. I look at things I wrote you know four weeks ago and I'm like this is trash. Say I'm trying to think if I've written a song when I was fourteen sounded like, Barney the Purple Dinosaur Likely I. Love You. You love me ATV's friends media. Hang. Up We just. recenter this conversation on the fact that somewhere in your possession is a list of seven hundred ways to talk about vomit. Yup. Yeah. Yeah. For a while we'll the thrill. Ill. Worked on something called the Big Book of bodily functions. Something like five, six, seven, hundred ways to save puke in. Two hundred ways to poop and I don't. I can't remember several hundred ways to say far BURP and all. I mean, we were we were eloquent and fourteen, I think. We made the video for behavior. Right. Yes. This is. came up with the phrase. Your stomach is rubber the potty. Is. Glue. We were shakes your. Shakespearian. Yes. Nearly we were we were. Yeah. We were really close to John we were really just we're a man. It's like it's like prime TJ to la like in that order. Yeah. And then like Dylan Christoffersen and who the hell else ever. He was also playing guitar bodice time. Two thousand eighteen NPR interview with Terry Gross Prin recalled teaching himself a singer pick while trying to emulate the Blues Country and Oak. stylings of Elizabeth Cotton and Mississippi John Hurt. He said quote when I was fourteen years old at sit in the closet in the Dr in case I ever went blond to see if I could still play products. Cheese crackers yeah. He also said, he said in that interview, it was a good thing that he learned to play without being able to see his fingers or the Har- as his belly had gotten so big, it could no longer himself flying anyway which Kinda starts a little peek into the humor that comes to a lot of songs despite the sometimes Dr Aims that he tackled. Still. PRONTO CBS this morning in two thousand, nineteen that he really didn't learn to play the guitar properly until he was seventeen aside from those dark closet sessions he said he realistically could play about two chords. He said he and his brother locked to play rebel. Rouser, by Duane Eddy that was one of their big ones. what his brother Doug. took up the fiddle. He needed somebody who could play rhythm guitar with him. So Prom. Court. Himself into the instrument a bit more at that time and apparently got pretty good at it. The the funny thing about prime the more I read about him in the more interviews a lot. He's very self effacing. I mean. We're going to get into the the list of people who consider him the greatest songwriter ever Kris Kristofferson, at one point said if God had a favorite songwriter, it's John Prime. That same quite a bit but he he he always talked down his own abilities he was. Tickled to death in one interview us all that there youtube videos that say like learn to pick like John Prien and he's like. I want to do that. In fact, he said that. His all of his songs he's he thought sounded a lot like you said, I. Try to play in a debate and it would still sound like IRA is. So very horrible. Their self abasing duty Ma from even from an early age it sounds like. Upon graduating from high school to. His brother Doug's advice and got a job as a mailman. Those observational skills that he seemed to be born with will likely fostered by both of his parents served him. Well, then as it is natural gift of crafting lyrics, he wrote a number of songs that going to be considered classics while delivering the mail in. Them? In? His. Own. Head. He said, I, wrote a lot of my first album on the mail route because there's not much else to do or mail route told NPR in two thousand seventeen. The best way to write a song is to think of something else and then the solemn kind of creeps in the beginning makes no sense whatsoever it's just like rops and then all of a sudden I'll go into I'm an old woman named after my brother. Apparently when you deliver the mail back, then they actually had these really giant the huge boxes that if it was raining, you could stop at and put your mail in so it wouldn't get wet. Sometimes, he said, he would just sit in those and ran at scribbled lyrics. which although it was pretty interesting. They still have those. I I don't think so. Because I well, because you know now most mail carriers are in. Jeeps or trucks or cars or whatever. I think back then like they actually had like a giant Satchel over the back wall morale for the most bar allow. Okay. Yeah. So if it was Ryan and you needed somewhere to kind of stick your mail so it wouldn't get you know soaking wet or whatever. Right In a grammys interview along with artists. Surgical. Simpson a couple of years ago. Prime said, his songwriting was influenced the most by Chuck Berry actually and also about the bluegrass music that he grew up listening to. He said his early songs quote had a very high body count. Like those bluegrass tunes that he heard in his youth ones where he said quote, a guy would drag his wife down by the river drown or shooter, and then go back to his mom's house wearing a bloody t shirt and thank he had a great day. which if you've listened to a lot of Beluga exactly pretty accurate. Fair. Records the fair yeah. I mean because if you think alike. something. Like old country bluegrass sounds like green green grass a Honam, it's such a pretty song as like yeah. No, it's really not read them. There's a lot of people dying in those songs. Contemporaries would be like Nick Cave right. McKay. Even the bad seed somebody like that, right? Yeah. Okay. So. In late nineteen, sixty, six primes career careers. A mailman took a brief and unplanned date tour when he was drafted into the army. This. was during a time when the conflict in Vietnam and America's role in it were beginning to escalate. So if you got drafted than, you probably have a pretty bad feeling about where you're going you know. Luckily for prime. Sent to the frontlines of combat in Vietnam he was instead sent to West Germany where he worked as a mechanical engineer. He apparently didn't speak much or very highly of his service telling rolling stone at one time that his contributions mainly consisted afloat drinking beer and pretending to fix trucks. but you know maybe and we'll get into this in a little bit as his first album comes out and and there's a song. That's one of his more famous I think seeing guys who did go to Vietnam who didn't get the break of being sent to West Germany or other places where there wasn't active combat going on I think he because he he had a lot of empathy he took note of that. and. He he he saw that he knew that he was luck. You know he knew that. I hate to use the price but that he dodged a bullet. Yeah. So once he returned home, he had actually married his high school sweetheart and Carol before being sent overseas he can resume and mail delivery. But he also began performing in public for the first time. Hitting an open mic night at a bar called the fifth peg in Chicago. which was a gathering spot for music teachers and their students from the nearby old town school, of folk. Folk. Folk. As that word funny you. GotTa be careful. Say Folk. Drinking a handsome johnny during honey. But but that's the there was a a school called the Old Town School of folk or prime actually himself went to his picking and a lot of the students and teachers from there would kind of tumble into this bar late at night now supposedly primes first performance there came after an all you can do better challenge from another performer. and has an Assad to whomever that fellow might man who said that John, Crime Since are Bob Dylan are sure you that John didn't do it better than you? Just say. After his first appearance prime was paid to make a weekly performance there and to listen to the sweet daily got, he got half the house coverage or how about that everybody that came in? That's pretty darn good half. The hat sounds like a generous cut until you realize it cost fifty cents to get into. So he got a quarter for every person who showed up basically. Bill bringing thousand people. What do you want right? Well, now he said he normally brought in about twelve and since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, sixty, six. This is a very light sixties right about nineteen seventy at this point on I mean granted a quarter still a quarter. But I think it went a little further in nineteen dig a little further but his hobby was making him a couple extra bucks. Even at this point he he really had no designs on pursuing music as a full-time. Profession. This is when fate intervenes intervened or other or the aforementioned salty popcorn shitty movie chances the course of his life. In October of nineteen seventy. Roger Ebert who was then the movie reviewer for the Chicago sun-times was watching film that he was going to review the entertainment section about weeks newspaper and I think back then on Fridays when they ran the big weekend entertainment section in the Chicago sun-times and in most newspapers. in several interviews recalled subsequent meetings with Ebert or the reviewer details forum. That the movie he was watching was lousy in the theaters. Popcorn was extremely over-salted. He actually, he actually left the screening of the film early and he did so with a draw miles. So he decided to grab a beer. So he stopped into a place called the pay. Someone. At the Bar told him that he should go to the back room and check out the country folk guy who was playing and was assured that quote the kids songs are better than that movie abor did. Roger wrote about Roger wrote about me instead of the movie the next day prime told NPR in two thousand seventeen. The Chicago sun-times. From. Ninety nine seventy featured a back page review of Ebert. The singing mailman who delivers a powerful message few words. A portion of that review rage, he appears onstage with such modesty. He almost seems to be backing into the spotlight. He sings rather quietly and his guitar work is very good but he doesn't show off he starts slow but after a song or to even the drunks in the room, begin to real to listen to the lyrics and then he has you Abbott wrote. And you have to keep in mind. This is a completely different world this fifty years ago there's not an internet. There's no twitter or facebook or any of that kind of stuff. So newspapers still carried a had a lot of power to influence things, and if Roger Freaking Ebert wrote a music review about some guitar picker, it was kind of a big deal i WanNa know what the movie was I looked and look and I could not find it. I tried my best to find. It was apparently just crappy movie from like nineteen seventy. So. Other than Star Wars A lot. But I mean. This is this is something either never finished the correct. Right. Right. Right. He didn't even he didn't even write. He never rode view about it. He didn't say the end of it. He left it saw I saw and he was thirsty. But. So you could probably talk about those even even more. because. You've studied the history of theater and film and all this stuff. If you got a big review a newspaper in the night in like in one thousand, nine, hundred seventy. That was a huge deal that made a big difference then. Because that was that was one of the the try mediums is like you had television you had. You've had movies and then you had newspaper in. So, that those were your as your four types of. Informational outlets and You get your music from the radio you get all your other information either the TV's because at this point, they weren't doing newsreels in front of the if I'm if I'm remembering correctly there. Because TV had become a larger medium within the sixties. Kind, there was A. It was a larger medium, but we have to remember nineteen seventy especially in rural areas like we were from not everybody even had a TV. That's true. But then you always had the radio with short, which has always since its advent has maintained. A resident in. Reporting like we I mean, I still listen like I probably comes to shock to any of our listeners that I still listen to am. I don't really listen to FM radio I only listen to radio. And other podcasts and that's pretty much it. So like it's it hasn't been until the advent of the Internet where we had things like twitter where we could get. We're literally I found out a couple of hours after Wolford grimly had died that he died. Right. Ends, up what's happened today or up he will for Bromley Yeah we're. We're actually has a the today as we record this. Yes because there were there were there were much fewer gatekeepers I. Guess is the word I'm looking for you right now you could tweet something to put it on facebook or instagram or whatever, and and thousands of people can say a few minutes. Ledley when we had the earthquake, which was not a pleasant thing to wake up to I thought I literally tweeted the word earthquake at like four thirty in the morning and then you texted me like four minutes later you're like I saw your tweet now like I'm fine. Yeah. But but there were but but now anybody can throw something online up online thousands of people can see it in a few seconds. It wasn't like that sixty years ago. Now, only the majority of households might not have had a television at that point. What if you got a big back page review written by Roger, Ebert in a big major daily newspaper that was a big deal? Yeah he's really deal. It's a trusted source. To. His for someone to supersede would he typically talks about that would be like doing an episode on I don't know an episode of the Sopranos? Right nights it's like something that is Not In our technical wheelhouse and we just take a divergence into that. The review from Ebert went onto marble at prins turn of a phrase in his biting lyrics he said the Song Sam Stone, which is about a morphine addicted Vietnam vet. went by different title Tom, quote says more about the last twenty years in America than any doesn't adolescent acid rock piece dirges. And he cited the lime quote there's a hole in the arm there's a hole in daddy's arm the money goes and Jesus Christ died for nothing I supposed. You hear lyrics like that. Perfectly fitted deprives quietly confident style and his goes to the Kentucky accent and you wonder how anyone could have so much empathy and still be looking forward to his twenty fourth birthday. Pretty lofty price yeah yeah. After that Review Ryan interest in prime spiked, he started playing three nights a week one night a week, and the house was not only full every night there was a land outside the door every night he played. He started playing shows at the earl of Old Town and was paid one thousand dollars a week under the table so Nice that sound like all the money in the world is someone who is taking home less than five hundred dollars a month delivering the mail. Saying. He said quote Mago was getting out of the post office. I was a mailman walking in the snow six days a week twelve hour days I thought this is heaven once got out I king of the hill I slept white all week and made a thousand dollars a week. I didn't care. If I never did anything else I was a total one hundred percent success. With starting to build, he attracted the attention of other songwriters one of those. Whose name actually going to withhold for just a minute urged his friend Kris Kristofferson to go to a prime show in Chicago. It was late and the earl was closed when the two arrived but the door was still a lot. So the two men came and found prime wedding around to get paid. They, they're urging prime pulled out his guitar and played. Kris Kristofferson who at the time his career was exploding already being acknowledged as one of the best songwriters in the world recalled quote about end of the first land we knew we were hearing something else. It must have been stumbling onto Bob Dylan when he first busted out onto the village same. So, Kris Kristofferson upon hearing. Of the first on. Any heard by the guy compared him to Bob Dylan? I'm just GONNA. Kinda, let that just sit marinate for a second while I drank some more this handsome johnny. Chris Christopherson is one of those people that I'm going to be really sad to episode on with that Man is keys a Rhode scholar golden gloves. Boxer. Award winner winner. Randy. Wetter like. Hugh look at his life and you're like crap I have done nothing with us saw as a human being because. Having for a while because he can probably talk about taking time. Yeah. Sure. Definitely. But you think I want you to think about this. Do you think about all of his what he stands for and his political stances and stuff but I want you to think about the fact that give even in spite of all that he volunteered to go to Vietnam. Bon tiered. and was told, no, no no, you're too valuable. We need you teaching it West Point. I mean. I don't know how you can't respect the dude. Helicopter was not the story. Yeah. Yeah okay. So the this goes back to the Felon Peter Cooper I mentioned at the very beginning because I asked him about this one time when I interviewed him. Johnny cash alleges that Kris Kristofferson quote commandeered a helicopter from the National Guard armory. Nice. Way of saying stole jacket. and fluid to Johnny, cash's house landed it in his backyard and he got all holding a beer in one hand and a cassette type in the other and handed cash the cassette type, right? So. Cooper. told me. He interviewed Christoffersen once and asked him about that Chris it. You know it. Took two hands to fly helicopter at that time. So you know John exaggerated a little bit. Which is the best Christoffersen I can do and. Our families is full of people who can do incredible. Imitations like that was that was that was a that was a spot on imitation of. Like he was hacking into this zoom session, people go into that section think Internet and Chris Christopherson. If to hack into the zoom session, our code is eleven Wa Four Seasons. Joe quoted Chris. Pride said quote there was nobody in the world I would rather have been playing songs for at the time. When S. was going well, what was going through his mind as he was playing for Kris? Kristofferson. He joked beer. which may not actually have been A. because. He said, he often had a couple of beverages for started singing for people back then. Prime was soon offered a one album deal with del Mar records, but the deal call for him to only do a few of his own compositions in a number of covers. It's odd that any deal would not have focused more on Prins, own songs and just put emphasis on his singing since prion really didn't like the sound of his own voice then. Hey recall wanting to run out of the studio and listening to his vocal playbacks in studio early recordings. So he ultimately passed on that deal. Christoffersen ended up offering a chance to open for him at a club date in new. York. And Atlantic records executive was in the audience and Prin signed with Atlantic at ten o'clock the next morning. Cheese and crackers. Yeah. So there was a guy named Jerry Wexler, who's apparently a pretty legendary. Record executive. He was sitting in the audience and he watched produce three songs, which is all the time he was allotted and that was all he needed air and he signed in the next morning. In nineteen seventy-one, prime self titled Debut Album was released and for fans of prime and his style of music almost serves as a greatest hits package. There is hello in there which captured the loneliness and pain of an aging couple now, hey, delivered mail owners routes to a Baptist retirement home but in his us in his youth, he also worked a paper route with a friend and doing so didn't just entail dropping off a bunch of hyper. When you got to this Baptist retirement home, you actually walked to each individual room and had to hand the the People newspaper. He said that he said that the people that he saw would actually pretend that he was their grandson or nephew who come to save them because they're actually their actual families rarely did. Oh God that sucks. Yeah. Hey, told CBS this morning he was also very close to Oliver's his grandparents and that he always naturally gravitated towards older. There was the song illegal smile which contrary to popular belief is not about smoking weed. Province said it was about how he always smiled and laughed at things other people didn't find. But he allowed quote. It was such a good anthem product smokers that I didn't want to have to stop every time I played it and make a disclaimer. Never corrected anybody he's like if you get about Wade, you're on. I don't care. There was your flag decal won't get you into heaven anymore, which takes a little bit of a jab at patriotism. Prime conceptualized it again while delivering the mail as he saw American flag decals that were inside Reader's digest magazines all over the suburbs where he worked. It's it's a funny song if you've ever heard it, but it also contains the line. But your flag decal won't get you into heaven anymore were already overcrowded from your dirty little war. Now, Jesus don't like kill no matter what the raisins four and your flag big. How will get you into Heaven Anymore probably the best known song from his debut album was angel from Gumri, which starts with the line I mentioned at the outset I am an old woman. One problem was asked about adopting such unique corn few for a song. He simply said that no one ever called me could. Authors create characters. So he didn't see why songwriters couldn't do the same thing and he frequently tried to look at the world through the eyes of others, and this guy's those with is of an unhappy middle aged woman who older than her years won't it out of her life out of her marriage and hope quote an angel from Gumri would take her away from misery. He told. An interviewer he talked about writing the song a buddy of his was a song writer. Said Hey look let's write. US another song about owed people. And process had kind of already said everything I wanted to say about that. You know that song I wrote called Hello in there. And the guy was like, no, no. Come on. Let's do it said. Okay. Well, let's do one about a middle aged woman who actually feels older than she is. And the friend thought about for a second that sucks. We don't need to do that. But prompted himself and it turned into angel from Montgomery. He figures that Montgomery came into play because of his affinity for the workers. Hank Williams course country legend grew up there. He said a lot of people. Because he grew up in, Chicago thought it was because there is an angel gargoyles on the Montgomery Ward Building in Chicago but he said that that has nothing to do with the next of the song. He also said there is no gender when it comes to being a writer. So he he just hate felt comfortable taking on. The. Even if it was a middle aged woman or an old cop or anybody else. The Song Paradise which actually speaks against the practice of strip mining would be adopted by environmentalists as kind of an aunt. Despite the subject matter the song paints a picture of Paradise which prime remembered has having two general stores and not much else as an idyllic place it old CBS. This morning quote US kids also paradise through our Dads is and that his dad love taking his kids there. He largely wrote the song he's told CBS This morning. So his dad would know that he was actually a songwriter. So basically once primed got to where he could pick and sang pretty well, he would play Hank Williams and Roy aac up songs for his dad who already talked about was a huge like old country fan but he wanted his own and realized that he could craft teams. So he said his dad who is mentioned in the Song Paradise Really liked it Now. The one thing you'll find if you read a lot about or watch interviews, he's given to exaggeration at Tom's except when he talks about himself, he talks his own singing playing and songwriting pretty often. His brother of Billy, who's a couple years younger than prime who prom would often describe as quote being almost seven feet tall and two feet taller than me despite the fact that he was six fifty six and not even a foot taller than Don Brown was. So that, their father was genuinely touched. The first time from played in paradise told American songwriter quote. My father was speechless. It was the most emotional look I've ever seen on my dad's fax. And I think this is a good time to check out our first musical offering from this propriety. So let's Stop here and listen to the song. Paradise. John Primes self titled Debut Album. All right. Here we go. When. I was a child, the family would travel down a Western Kentucky where my parents were born. and. There's a backwards down off then. So many times. THEM RE is war and Daddy won't take me back the Mu Berg county down by the Green. WHERE THEY'RE DIES Williams saw mass. To. Mr. Go train all way. Some tablet travel down green. The band and all. Down by review. Where they're still lacks. Week shoot with our. Buddy m the. Was All we would.

MR, DEBA- gold train is all the. Way. Nice we in Vienna Mr Thrill hair literally look at each other and was like, Yup that's like Dylan of doing dylan. It's or almost kind of like a Hillbilly James Taylor. Sort of. which is I mean a little? Do. In that that classic singer-songwriter Bain don't you know dial and I really like the almost writing in of that like bluegrass slash Celtic Music Yeah. It's it's neat. It's unique. It's very which which is so funny because later in life he. Actually would spend part of each year in Ireland Fund that you mentioned that. But we'll get to that a little lighter. Stuff. Okay. So the first album did not make a big splash commercially up it didn't crack the billboard hot one hundred out chart, but it was a critical success rolling stones would be read in part quote. This is a very good first album by berry good songwriter good song writers are on the rise, but John Cryan is differently good. His work demands some time and thought from the listener is not out to write pleasant tunes. He wants to arrest a cursory listener and get attention for some important things he has to say, and thankfully he says them without falling into the trap of riding with overtimes of self-importance or smugness. A the village voice gave the album and a writing. Other artists certainly took note of Primes early work Carly Simon covered angel from Montgomery less than a year after prime album. I do remember that version of that the garlic I I'd never actually heard. Carly Simon version of that. I'd actually heard I. Okay. Until recently I've not I've not heard it. Though it's been covered by dozens of artists every year over the years probably the best known in Love Ours Remains Bonnie rates nineteen seventy or cover. She told Performing Songwriter magazine in two thousand that song quote probably meant more to my fans and my body of work than any other songs. which you know you're talking about the person who saying. I can't make you love me and something to talk about Nichols and she says that's the one pretty much. In her body of work to her fan vice I believe she is the only woman to have a specifically designed fender guitar. Yup. Having, seen her in concert, she certainly should. Go pick yeah gain the she's the only one she shouldn't be the only one there there are plenty Nancy Wilson should have won I mean. Yeah paradise was covered by Johnny Cash John. Fogerty. The everley brothers and Dwight Yoakam among many others. Sam was a song that pain wrote on his mail route in his head. When he got home a thought like he had something good. He frantically looked for some piper to lay down, but he couldn't find any. So he scribbled them three cardboard in sort of insert from packs of Tanny. Because that's the only thing you could bond Rodham down on. When prime was drafted? He was initially sent to a base in Louisiana and made to quote crawl around the swamp. So you can. We kind of already touched on you. You can imagine wearing figured he was going at the time. He of course, he ended up in Germany Quad. I'm still dancing over that one. But five of his friends did end up going to the wars iron. Now, I'll fob of actually did make it home, but he said none were ever the same. He said that was the basis of the Song Sam Stone which was voted the eight saddest song ever written a rolling stone readers poll. Way What do you think the saddest song is? In home you. Oh God he stopped loving her today maybe. Okay. Well maybe tears in Heaven Eric locked him. I'm going to have to go Clarence Carter Patches. God Yeah Patches is pretty bad. That's my job dot com liquidity maybe. Holes in the floors of Heaven or Love Me is at Collin Raye. Love Me. Where Ya. Steve warranted. House in the four having Colin. Right was love me. Yeah. Yeah. Those are all pretty mild Lin Sam Stone if you've never heard of is pretty damn sidelights. Definitely. The. The funny thing was on. A Addul interview where he I I saw a couple of there's one I saw where it was he and Bill Murray being interviewed, and there's one that was installed Simpson and I don't remember which one it was, but he was talking about that song. And he said that the first time. He performed it. He he thought I think this is good but I'm not sure it's pretty sad. There's a line that we'll talk about in a minute that was considered pretty provocative. especially for nineteen seventy one. So he he he was a little unsure, but he goes up there and he plays it. And said he finished blind the song and the audience just sat there and looked at it. And he is quite was will shit that must have been worse than I thought. But it's just it's so sad the first time you would hear it I can't imagine the reaction you would have to which. May I love? What is the name? Again it's called. Sam Stone can hang on. You know what I'm I'm calling an audible. Calling, an audible sandwich. Forty two, forty, two, Sam Stone. Because I want to I want this is a genuine reaction had never heard this song I'm the one. Emotional when I listened homeless. Careful what you with foil day we'll see what happens. Okay. Okay. Sam Stone. Why Family To serve. The conflict over. Z. Time, sir? Shattered always nerd.

Mix up another handsome Johnny will not when you all? I mean it's okay. Maybe I'm maybe I'm a jerk. Maybe. I've got a heart of stone. But I'm like, that's more disturbing to me than release. Sad it's like. It's like a protest for something that's already happened. It's like. Will but but you also have to view it through the prism of it being nineteen seventy-one. When it came out, you know what I mean. It's like we're a tad jaded by this point imagine how different that would a sounded. Fifty years ago I mean that's that would have been a gut point people didn't do. There weren't a ton of songs like that back then I mean Dylan probably I'm sure that's all there a few others but not manny. Yeah and it's it is a heavy song. It's literally not but I think what it is. It's not. Here's the thing where it's. Here's the thing when it comes to like sad songs not to get too much on a tangent but. When, when you have a sad song something like tears in heaven or a, he stopped loving her today like what you had those. Songs, we humanize them We. We have felt that way before where. Is Not a normal. Feeling. For most of us to understand what it feels like to come back from war a completely broken person addicted to. Heroin right and. Abandoning your family and. Starting petty theft like we were. A depressing song. But it's hard to. Empathize, but. With that. Sure. Yeah. If you haven't been there and done that. But. That's. Of Kinda WanNa his gifts is that he wasn't there and he didn't live that but he still wrote a song that's considered one of the definitive. Veteran. Songs and. I don't know that anybody at the at that point would have been writing about. Post traumatic stress disorder and a veteran's addicted to drugs and all that kinda stalls I I. Yeah. I don't know if anybody else had done that I'm not I'm not GonNa take away from the fact that it is a powwerful saw It's incredibly impactful. It's incredibly like it's it's it's a very, very good song. Away from it, I'm just saying it's hard for me to. Connect with it on that lower. Right. The song was actually covered lighter by number of artists most notably Johnny cash. Now, if you could totally hear cash thing in that. If you've heard the man in black's version, you know that the lyrics were altered just a little bit. Prin explained to rolling stone that cash was perhaps the only person he would have allowed ultra one of the psalms. ranted cash cash was working with their mutual friend Cowboy Jack Clement in the studio and wanted to record Samsung. Famously. Devout in his Christian faith cash had a little bit of problem with the line and Jesus Christ dot for nothing I suppose. He said quote he didn't feel comfortable singing in that line. I said well, you know it's the heart of the song for me. It's everything in the song kind of fell out of that one lap I know where I'm coming from when I say that it means there's no hope if the Veterans GonNa come home and be like that nobody's going to help them with this drug habit and what's the use of living However prime did allow cash to make an adjustment changing the line in question to daddy must have hurt a lot back then I suppose. He said quote. It's Johnny Cash. All I, know is he singing muscle After. He said that cash was quote like Abraham Lincoln to me. And the two had a little bit of mutual admiration society as cash listed Ron among his big four all Tom of songwriters. Pink Floyd Cover Sam Stone but it has been noted that the song the war dream from nineteen ninety, three album. The final cut bears a very strong resemblance to sandstone sharing its chord progression instrumentation melody and not the opening lot of the song can also be seen as an allusion to prince composition as it says. Tell. Me True Tell me why was Jesus Crucified? Is it for this data died? Roger Waters was an unabashed prime fan eventual friend. In a two thousand, eight interview with word. Magazine. Waters was asked if he could hear pink flew people its influence on bands like, radio, ed. Hey. responded quote I don't really listen to radio. I'll listen to the albums and they just didn't move me in the way that say John on does his is extraordinarily eloquent music and he lives on that plane with Neil young and John Lennon. So I had a pretty hot pity to John Brought, I would say. Hello, and there has been covered by John. Denver Joan by is Bette Midler and David Allen Coe. Speaking of speaking of the ladder. Let's circle back to that song writer who insisted that his Buddy Kris Kristofferson go check out front and Chicago. That was a man named. Steve. Goodman now even if you aren't familiar with him. First of all, you should they city of new. Orleans amongst many other great songs. You've almost certainly heard his name. In this home, you never even called me by my name co famously breaks into a reputation midway through the proceedings and says, well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song and he told me it was the perfect country and western song. I. Wrote Him Back Letter Letter and told him. It was not the perfect country and western song because he had said anything about Mama or trains, or drugs, or prison, or getting drunk. And then he of course launches into the diverse that begins will I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison. As a personal aside, I should note that I am my groomsmen sang that song at a wedding reception because I am nothing if not on point. Before at a product of where I grew up. Oh. My God. Well, everybody like you've know what kind of night Karaoke was when saw that song because? You know it was a call an answer. Zinc. Sexy Dave did do I. Don't think it was it was it was me and all my groomsmen sang that at our wedding reception if you remember. Now, I think sexy. Dave. Sang at my birthday party. Living. Okay. Yup Yup which. I am I this out later but I think that was the same night he actually in my cat's litterbox. Okay. All right. So so somebody I'm Kim to got drunk and China David, Allen, coach Song. Checked what and you already litterbox? You'd had exactly and then painted your litterbox that sounds plausible you. Okay so you never even called me about nine is credited to Steve Goodman but most people don't know until his obituary mentioned that many years later, John Pride Co wrote that song with. Running. But he chose not to claim songwriting credit because he said quote I thought it was a joke. The to actually wrote it as a lighthearted spoofs of stereotypical country songs. Prompt said he he loved country music and didn't want to mock it. So he just left his name off of it. As Cho's version became a monster hit. He said that Goodman called him one day and said. He sure you don't want your name on its. Goodman who's about accounts I? Just a very great. There's a great human being took a portion of the sizable royalties he received from that smash it and on a nineteen, forty, two, roll her jukebox as a gift. Prime said that Goodman. Kristofferson were the two most generous people he ever met. Not. Just in the music business but period in his life and Pretty much his career. You WanNa think that somebody's as talented as him would have been discovered eventually. but the review from, but they're very talented people who for whom that bright never calms. So the the review was probably a huge part of it and. Steve Goodman telling Chris Christopherson who was a big Fan of Goodman waste thank my songs are good. You. You need to check out my buddy John Prin without without those three ABOR Christoffersen Goodman. We probably aren't even doing August, I'll jump Ron. Honestly. Some hailed prime after his first album is quote the next Dylan, which is flattering enough for a song writer. But get this in an early show that prompt played in New York Bob Dylan himself made an unannounced appearance singing background and playing harmonica on stage with brought. The capital that story is that prins album had not even been released yet, but Dylan had gotten an advance copy of it and love it so much that he learned the songs, it just showed up and play. The FRY has amazing. For Dylan Goodman and Kristofferson to hail somebody's first album songwriting ability says quite a lot. in two thousand, nine Dylan told the Huffington post why he was drawn to strongly inconsiderate of his favorite song writer. He said quote prone stuff is pure prostate existentialism Midwestern trips to the nth degree and he writes beautiful psalms I remember when Chris Chris Scott. Christoffersen, I brought him on the same Sam stone featuring the wonderfully evocative There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes and Jesus Christ Jesus. Christ dot for nothing I supposed. All that stuff about Samson the soldier Junkie, Daddy Donald and Lydia where people make law from ten miles away nobody but john onto right like that. So. That's Bob Dylan saying that which job I would take as a stamp of approval pretty much. Yeah we've actually been talking about. Dylan a lot last. couple. Of weeks he's got. He's. You when you guys did the protest protest song episode a couple of weeks ago. that deal it's like it's almost like you're doing an episode Dylan still alive because he wrote so many an influence. So many other people to do the same thing. Yeah, well, he will be protest songs, and then we did there were like two other episodes where. He was prominently feature Georgia Tradition. Segregation and Benefit. Concerts. Sopron was nominated for the Nineteen seventy-two best new artist award at the grammys. Now that that honor which is had a number of curious outcomes over the years. So prime the eagles LOGGINS MESSINA AND HARRY CHAPIN LOSE TO AMERICA Come on. They did the soundtrack for the last uniform. said quote whenever I ran into Eagles through the years they would limit. We should have written a horse with no name runs. Shaping was the other one. It. Was it was prime the eagles loggins and Messina Harry Chapin in America in America. While Unfortunately before project record came out, his father passed away it definitely impact them as he recalled. In an interview I saw, and if somebody who has lost fathers a heartbreaking thing to hear but he said he was at his dad's house drinking a couple of beers and play some songs and he said quote and I didn't realize that I would never see my dad again when I'll elst. Switch, that's that sounds like A. That has the makings of a fine country and western song. It's all I think gut much. Kid of in one, thousand, nine, hundred, prime released his second album. It was called diamonds in the rough, which was recorded quickly and rather cheaply at Atlantic records recording studios in New York City France at the recording sessions took three days and call seven, thousand, two, hundred dollars quote including beer. It was even more stripped down than his first album which y'all to songs from it. That was pretty strict about it's respects And it takes featured to turn towards the BLUEGRASS in the early country music that he loved. In the latter notes to great days, the John Cryan and policy quote I just wanted to do dominance away I. I was used to play music at a house with Dave, his brother who plays Dobro Banjo, and then on the record and Steve Goodman Hoop lead, guitar and provided background vocals. But it's taken me years to figure out how to balance those first two records about every other record. After making a real studio, a rock and roll album I'd come back and do a dominance of the Russ. As already mentioned to the songs that made their way onto the album written on was fourteen. He told American Songwriter magazine how the frying pan and sour grapes ended up there. Is A I had a girlfriend whose father was a janitor and the reason. I'm telling you that is because he had access to a tape recorder and nobody else I knew had one they were really rare a real to reel I sat down and type three songs for this girl and her sister and the three. The three songs were frying Pan Sour Grapes and Twist and shout. Years later, I ended up marrying that girl. She was my first wife. She found the tape it was after I'd made the first album. So I put those songs on diamonds in the rough. And those were the first songs I remember writing. A notable song from the record was one called souvenirs. Now prime actually intended for that to be on his debut albums but had already cut twelve songs when he got ready to record it and the the paper pretty much just on them. Now you got twelve, you're done. So. This kind of was a holdover. He wrote it once he got his low pain Gig at the V bag where he got you know a quarter for everybody who showed up at. Many of the faces in the crowd didn't change week to week prior to that Ebert review prime figured he needed to not play the same songs every week and should add to his repertoire. So basically wrote that song driving to the club one dyke rehearsed it in front of the Bathroom Mirror v Neck once and debuted it that not. Allowed from that all the snow has turned to water Christmas days if common doll broken toys and faded colors are all that's left lingering on a hate graveyards and old pawnshops they always bring me to tears I can't forgive the weather rob me of childhood souvenirs. wrote that in his car drove into the globe. According to. That is. Dennis that's? Unfair At that point you at that point you're just showing. All right. According to prompts website artists was told by Goodman the song. Yes I guess they ought to number drink after you had the potential to be a hit. said quote I was going for a Hank Williams Song Steve Goodwin always told me that if I'd taken another couple of minutes and put a chorus to the song. there. Isn't any I just put a tagline to reverse that it would have been a hit country song but I was set in my ways wants a song was done. It was done. The great compromise is an anti war song and a little bit of a protest all although the lyrics don't necessarily read that way using a promiscuous girlfriend as a metaphor for America. In a loner notes to great. Quotes the idea had in mind that America was this girl used to take to the drive in movies, and then when you went to get popcorn, she turned around and screwed some Ghana foreign or its color. He said I really love. America I just don't know how to get there anymore. Which is pretty deep. Album had one cover song that being a remake of the Carter family's dominance Ross which ended up in. And Prime said, he borrowed the melody from Jimmy Rogers is treasures untold for his song the late John Garfield Blues. In terms of chart success is second album did about the same as its predecessor getting to number one, hundred, forty, idol, the billboard chart critically it was again well received with all musics William. Role in Saint John Ron second album was a cut below as I only because the debut was a classic and the follow up was merely terrific. David Fricke wrote that was quite a superb collection of tones entails recorded with Acoustic no-frills living room. Ambience. The village voice gave it an A. minus writing. Now, step away from his albums for a minute in Canada idea for the John Concert been light at this time. Prime like a lot of kind of folk country artists at the time at 'em Singer songwriters in general played with no band. It was just in his guitar on stage said clubs he played out with usually put a stole in front of a microphone since many musicians chose to sit while they played and sign. Prime would stand but often use the stolas a place to sit a six pack of beer and his ashtray. Like my right. Right Karan's. I saw an interview with them where he said the other thing was at at that one he still didn't know how to properly tuned guitar. So he would sit there for up to fifteen minutes sometimes being being. And he would just have to like bullshit and tell stories to fill. Did and is. Developing a dedicated fan base and then offered a featured stellar musicians and when he played in Chicago Comedians from second city including Bill Murray and John Belushi. In the show love this story, a couple of times. The latter of those being John Belushi actually lobbied to have prime as a musical guest on the second season of Saturday night live when the beach boys were scheduled musical act relied scratch. So. He was actually on season two Saturday night lob as a musical guest. Yeah I don't know. Okay. Here's the thing now I don't know if I would take. Suggestions from John Belushi about John Belushi on musical guests because. he shows. Musical guests from like the first season, and it was a punk rock group that ended up destroying the set. One of them might take a dump on my own. It's often like. You GotTa consider your source here was John. Belushi making these right now. Again last night be suggests that if someone pooped on out so Looking at this jaws. Crime. I think. Canadian Canadian songbird and Murray did the same thing. I've had several hats. Off The only reason why I know and Murray is because you know grandma would give up on me and go to bed and Let Me Watch TV and Anne. Marie would have those like. Albums the TOB life music yes. Commercials sure. The Time Lakers I remember we stayed up until two am watching those because one of them was an Murray. One of them was Kenny Rogers and Enra- Stephen showed up yup I not A. Single Year my mother would play the hand Murray Christmas. Every single year. But Lewis of are remembering that, right? Do what was an Murray friends with Sherry? Lewis. AM I. Sure not. Yong said. That nobody can see this. This is just a kind of a joke for the room y'all are sitting on a couch together and I can't see will's hands. So you're almost like his. Like his lamb chop. Just doesn't on my friend. and. Nineteen seventy-three Best. Brian head moved to Nashville and he released his third album sweet revenge. It contained a couple of classics like Mexican home and Dear Abby which was actually recorded live when Prin studio. Really stiff and humorless. Again the reviews were positive. It was noted that he seemed more vocally confident a bit more mature and was developing a sense of cynicism. But again, album did sell fairly modestly in nineteen seventy five he put up album common sense which would be his most successful album commercially to that point it actually hit number sixty six on the billboard chart. With contributions from Bonnie Rait Glenn, Fra, and Jackson Browne and production by Steve Cropper of Booker T in fame you would think that it would be a winner Jan.. Frans, said he came out of Mit the studio with a good record however, the book John John In spite of himself about other Eddie Huffman said quote cropper was moving into the rock and roll big leagues as producer working on Rod Stewart's next record around the same time he decided primes album needed fleshing I'll. Despite the singer's reservations cropper took the tapes to Los Angeles and added the kinds of overdubbed arm had said he wanted to avoid. So, although it reached a larger audience reviews were sort of mixed on that one with a major complaint being that Crohn's lyrics got lost in the middle of a lot of ways that cropper light on top. Prime Mount his first tour of America and Canada with a full band that year. But he was growing disenchanted with Atlantic records, which he didn't think same to get him or his music. So he asked to be released from his contract in fact, he went to Omit Erdogan, who is like a tightened the record industry and pretty much said Y'all suck and you don't know what to do with my music. I would like you to let me out of my contract and Ertegun to his everlasting credit did obliged and he let out of this record contract. So he signed with asylum records which was kind of saint as being a little bit more singer, songwriter friendly. He worked on his next album with his buddy cowboy. Jack Clement. With some of Nashville's best session musicians, they hold up in clements addict studio round the clock six a week. It rolling stone in two thousand seventeen quote we were high as dogs. Really, good stuff. The problem according to problem was they weren't getting the record they were playing everyday in the studio. He eventually turned to his friend Steve Goodman, the nineteen seventy eight album bruised oranges was a huge hit, but the critics got back own A. Prime Saad and it featured ten very well received songs. The title track is another. Complete. Like. hob The sharp. instruments. Tune about a real life tragedy from Franz US fellow Church alterable way was hit by a commuter train. ooh. Yeah. The song there she goes seemed to elude the crimes on crumbling marriage, which ended not long after the album's release. There was also if you don't want my love which he wrote with legendary producer, Phil Spector. Now that seems like a very odd pairing. But prompted NPR's Terry grossed one of his early champions was La Times music critic Robert Hilburn. Pran ran into him And learned that Hilburn was writing a book with Specter and was at his house every single night interviewing him over untold prom. He should come up and meet a Specter Princeton. He was reluctant at first because he doubted that specter would even know who he was. But said that Spector had actually quoted some John Prime Lyrics to him during their interview. So. Prin did come up and specter played him an unreleased Leonard Cohen Album that he was using. A prime described Specter's houses quote like a circus show. said that his drink never got below half full and noted that Specter's two bodyguards. One of whom was quote a swarthy skinny guy and another that quote looked like to Bacha. Aw. Spent. A said that specter were a three piece suit at all times and a shoulder holster. With a gun in it As Front as problem went to leave that night specter sat down at a piano new the front door urge prone to pick up an unplugged electric guitar they wrote if you don't want my love in less than thirty minutes. Six months later, prime prime came back and played a recorded version of the song for Specter. They started another song again as prom delays called God only knows now pride intended to finish the song later but he had trouble dome inside. He said that for years when he would go to do a new album, he would kind of circle back to it and go into what I should I should finish that song, and for some reason, he just he couldn't finish the song. He did eventually complete it. But once specter was in prison for murder. Which obviously Folks who follow music and celebrities that are aware that spectators jail for murdering his wife eldest. By Bonnie Ronnie Lee Bagley brought others, others as. I remember like only trail doesn't remember the trial are the trial more than. A hair. All. The the hair and the face and the glasses are bike burned into my retinas and we'll never leave me. But the the wants prime finished the song it contained the line if I should betray. Today than God only knows the price you pay. He said he was quote shocked but not sure shocked by the murder allegations who get specter he said quote he always had guns around and he was always waving them around. You know I'm not exactly sure about how the whole thing happened but that was the part I was not shocked about now we're going to listen to. The. Song God only knows. But I'M GONNA give everybody a little bit of a heads up. So this song started writing it in the very late seventies prime didn't finish it until. Twenty five or so years later. Didn't record it until then. By that time John Cryan had had a life of the that. Negatively. Impacted his voice well, not not necessarily negatively but his voice was decidedly different and I'm telling you that only because if you've heard the first or songs we did and then you listen to this when you're not gonNA, think it's the same person. And, we will get to watch his voice sounded so different abandoned but just just kind of giving you a heads up this doesn't sound light paradise for Samsung but this is a John Brown. It's a song he started riding with Phil Spector and finished once bills was in prison called. God only knows again, I will say before I start this song that if I lose my true crime card if I don't get this, right we actually went goes Lana Clarkson Not Bonnie Bagley. So at its Lana Clarkson. That that he is he was sent to prison for murdering so. Here's a song. You. Only knows. is that you pay For the ones you heard. Away. BASHES betray. Myself. Today. God. Only knows. Only knows. We be. Over. The. Game reveal. A field. Note. the. The. Sedan. De. Wait. Man. Out. Mattru. Did things that say. And the things add do. Ba true. James. Don't know. Okay, I got three things I gotta say about that Song Okay. Number one I actually like his voice a lot more in this one he he liked his voice better wants it changed and we'll get into why change a little bit lighter eight you eight. John Himself agreed with you. Yeah. Number two it's very Lou Reed Ish this is this is very, very reminiscent of Louis especially like take a walk on the wild side. And the number three I would love to have heard the version that he wrote. With Phil Spector because I feel like the difference between that one and what actually got laid down later in life probably would have been something like comparing Joni, Mitchell's a love from both sides. Rod. I specifically think it's both sides now from Joni Mitchell but other artists have revisited their songs. From your younger and they have changed differently. But like I would have loved to have seen the difference between those two songs. Yeah. Sure. Definitely. The only thing was it was it was unfinished and I don't know what to what state it was unfinished or how much they wrote and lay down before were. Literally before primes cab showed up that night and he had to leave. But. It took decades to finish the song. Was Interesting about this one is a know earlier talked about his influence is being kind of that grand old opry. This sounds more like hank, Williams than any of the other stuff we listen to so. Yeah. It does but you can also hear at first of all the voice is so much different. and. It doesn't sound like Ersan but but then. Just. Musically, it sounds completely different from anything we've we've played up like sounds a little bit richer and fuller I know if that's he'd finally gave into the mix you know that you're you're saying like it stripped down raw and other smick this seems more. Mixed with like overlays and things that he would have fought against initially bright because you can hear the background singers, strains and the and electric equipment, which we haven't heard much of on his early songs either, right so So primed to two more albums for asylum records. The I was nineteen seventy-nine Paint Cadillac. It was produced mainly by Knox and Jerry Phillips and two trucks were produced by their dad a fellow you might have heard of by the name of Sam Phillips, the legendary founder of Sun Records. It Martin departure with prime focusing much more on a rock sound and recording only five of his own songs with the rest being made up of rocks from his youth. Rowing Simmer here David Marsh team to quote and almost unqualified disaster and I had never quote sung such a half ass grab bag of songs. William Roulmann running for all music was a little bit condorcet quote pink. Cadillac was a good idea that went slightly Iran the execution. France years lighter though that the album developed into a fan favorite over Tom's The next album was nineteen eighties more country flavored storm windows, which was much more well received by critics than its predecessor was. That was primes last album for asylum and that it was his last record for any major liable. He. Had begun to grow. Weary of dealing with record labels and he had taken a dim view of what he's always there exploitation of artists. So he formed his own label he was actually one of it was a pioneer. In this way, he was one of the first artists to form their own record label. He started Oh boy records in Nineteen eighty-one with his manager Albany Ed. I should point out that his first manager was actually Paul Anka. Just. Find a funny. When when Christofferson showed up at the Earl township to hear him play. It was actually hey Steve Goodman and Paul. Anka. And go was his first manager but prime's broader said that ACA basically collected his managers percentage and didn't really do much for him. And Veneta was much more straight guy who? Who really liked and he kinda got Ryan and he Kinda F-. He was a bare knuckle guy got kind of all for him and stop. So they apparently got along really really well, and they own record label together and the first release on the album was a red vinyl Christmas forty files that featured on singing I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and silver bells a proposed don't people who don't know who Paul Anka is. He just put your head on my shoulders puppy love Diana. And pennies from heaven like he was one of those like. Dog Producers Sort of. Puppy love singers. That's what I'm trying to Japan Yup Yup. Prime fans were so loyal they mailed. Chicks often with note, saying that the next prime album to just be delivered to them in exchange for the money that they were sending them. Enough was collected that primes recording sessions for nine hundred, ninety, four's album aimless love were completely paid for. Wow Yeah. Now, that album did not chart at all but that we have to put an asterisk all match it was It was available mainly via mail order and Ernest tubbs record store. But Rolling Stone said quote John on the elegant songwriter is still in pot for. Bob Dylan loved the song people putting people down so much that he immediately began covering it in concert. Prin alleges that a mailman approached him after a show once and asked if he wanted to hear Dylan Sane, this on before handing him a bootleg cassette type of a Dylan concert from Rome Italy. Progress for a prime biographer Eddie Huffman called the song quote unwed. The best since his debut. Character Song that held its own with Sam, Stein Johnny cash and Tammy Wynette. Did Duet remake of that song. Causing that name wrong it's one at. Tammy Wynette Jamie Line et. Standby. Yet What one of my favorite off the right are SNL bits ever? Going Hustle play in Tammy one. As. Natalie Cole sit quite sings the hits of her father's dead friends. And she starts saying stand by your man and Tammy WanNa Guess, I am not dead. AS Roma's get started bitch. Oh. Man Yours is like my favorite off the beat of SNL skit is. One that I don't think they'll ever show against the pasta maker five thousand. Because it's just it's might. Unpaid saying that it's it is so hilar-. So, ridiculously funny. But like Mike Myers, if you watch Mike Myers face in that skit is his name. Skin is the same face that he did when Tanya West. On. During Katrina. Look like. The same thing it is it is so horribly pc it is not is not. It would never fly. Now you could know nobody could ever fat or get it on a get an audience anywhere Nile. Bags of Nineteen ninety-two that was. Still get away with stuff like that in nineteen ninety-two there's almost no part of it that we can relive right now. So why don't we instead listen unwed fathers John? Role podcast. Great Segue wait that's not the song. Napoli. Greyhounds. She Sits A. Fan. A. Goodbye Bre. Dilma. Deal all the Iraq someday. on. LAXA. Bad. Doing. While unwitted. They leave. There are a law. Mad and string. Cold and Laid down. Say. No. Ground. Someone's. In agrees. Back. Some bad. On with The AW. Around. The Romance Wary you ban. Smoking Matt. Is it down. Dawn live. The team. Back Style Band Drain With FAV. To a man. Run LAG walshaw. Man Strang. Okay, and for those wondering of the Lady's voice that you hear is Rachel Peter who was actually prime second. Wise. Yeah I was saying when we were listening to it as she sounds a lot like Kylie minogue she kinda does which is weird since I don't think she was from Australia but yeah. So. Nineteen ninety-four was a good year in a bad year for prime. Unfortunately his friends Steve Goodman died at the age of thirty six of leukemia and I'm just going to encourage anybody who's never who is all that familiar with bronze work or with a Goodman's were go go look at him up he is he was a brilliant songwriter the dude wrote city of New Orleans. Correct you never even called me by my name. For sports fans. Hey, cut wrote go cubs go. The. Cubs. Yes, that Steve Goodman wowed. And he wrote door number three, which Jimmy Buffett recorded on one of his early albums was fantastic and he what left way too early of but. That year of the prime did get married this time to bassist. Rachel. Peter who would just start coaching in that song with him. He told rolling stone a that marriage was doomed from the get go. Hey actually calls the eighties his bachelor years. Hey. Would normally wake up around three thirty in the afternoon. Hey go eat fried eggs and have his first beer of the day at Brown's diner. He, play some video poker and hit a few bars with his buddies Don Everley and townes Van Zandt. Then go to the grocery store and he would have dinner ready for his friends at one. Am when he knew they would all be heading home from various nightclubs. Drugs were fairly prevalent. I. Know That's a shocker for musicians in the eighties. Out. Particularly cocaine and quite lose. Oddly, given song that problem would inspire many of many years. Later, he was not a huge fan of marijuana and they said he never was actually. Regrets. Go back. There was towns, a member of the Jacksonville Vincent's. No. No. Not that. Not Checking on. Okay. which was Hanging out with. was, little stevie you read Stevens A and that. is not related to lose Dave, you can see there's a number of Van Zandt. Worked with one apparently I didn't even know Linda worked with Little Stevie I. Don't remember this but. You're you worked with little stadium that's pretty B-. That's pretty awesome. I work with. We'll see the I know idea like we talked. Sopranos. When I was on soprano his children want to watch him I'm sorry Yeah I've never seen Sopranos but apparently it's required reading if you're from my face. In the show. All in nineteen eighty, six prom put out the grammy nominated German afternoon which a Time magazine called the worst album title in the history of music. It, was a roots. He country record that featured contributions from Marty Stuart and new grass revival. Some of the songs were inspired by or at least reflected trends disintegrating marriage producer Jim Rooney said quote John and Rachel having a very up and down time of it, but the resulting songs might have been worth all the trouble. Stand standard offerings include speed of the sound of loneliness, which is very clearly about his marital situation listen Another would go on to be one of the biggest hits of programs career though not his version of was I. Just WanNa dance with you. George Strait Mulford that in nineteen ninety eight and it became a number one country was. Later yeah. That's actually probably the biggest hit that Prin ever wrote. Because King George cut it so I mean that just. An. was like between nineteen, ninety, four, and nineteen, Ninety, seven, Ninety, eight countries. Country had this weird resurgence of popularity in the mainstream had people that. Country listeners listening to country huge Yulia whatnot you have absolutely you did. have yet hand tillis coming out you had. A future episode with. Mindy, McCready. Shave my legs for this. What was her name Carter? Santa Carter. Neal McCoy you had all of these like. Kanji, you're making that cross. You had to like the late eighties of the eight th what is it called? The class of eighty, eighty, nine, it was. Garth Brooks Travis Trigger Clint. Black. All those all those guys and that Kinda carried board for Awhile, and then you had like another group. Bust out in the mid late nineties who who you're talking about the Dana Carvey. Too Far off but man I loved Randy Travis. Benjamin. Yeah. Oh. Yeah. WHO Doesn't? WHO DOESN'T Who Doesn't love you know who doesn't love or any Travis Communists. Fuel live forever and ever Manda probably don't like you I'm sorry I. Know that you're a couple handsome gentlemen Did use call communist Communist. Communists like oh Brandon. If you don't like on the other hand you are a communist and I probably wouldn't like. So prins marriage unfortunately ended in nineteen, Ninety, eight or nineteen eighty-eight. But that same year he met a lady nine, Sione Wayland. Born in Ireland Ireland would eventually become prins manager and the two would wed in Nineteen ninety-six and remained married until. primes unfortunate. DA's. PRIN released the missing years in Nineteen ninety-one. Then put out a John on Christmas nineteen ninety-three and lost dogs and mixed blessings and nineteen ninety-five. In one thousand, nine, hundred, however prime learned he developed cancer in his neck. He knelt alone. He felt a lump there but he thought it was a bulging blood vessels. Literally, he would just like shave around it and thought literally nothing of it for a long time. he ended up having to have extensive surgery to remove diseased tissue and underwent weeks of Radiation Treatment Ooh. The procedures left him with a slightly slumped head. It damaged nerve endings in his tongue and it damaged salivary glands. Hey required more than a year of therapy before he could sing again and when he did. So his voice was lower and a bit more raspy which we heard in the Song God only knows which you said you prefer to La and he did to. Let, me lay. Okay. You know when you get sick like you, you have got years of radio behind you like years and years. You get sick and you'd start healing. There is at like three day period where you had like a really gravelly voice but it was it was cool. It wasn't well. When I get when I get some kind of throat thing, it always makes my voice really deep and so I, instead of Barry White I call myself very white. He's been drinking rum. Yeah No, there's three days where it's like sexy. Cool. But like. That's John John's voice sounded like when ours like I actually liked it more because it was deeper and it felt it felt older and more developed it had. Did He send? So it so he had a year and a house in between concerts and when he goes to play his first win. Post recovery. He was unsure how audience would take. His new voice, but he said afterward, they were with me boy were they with me so does his audience was very receptive to it. Off Prime adopted Fiona Son Jody. And the two had two children of their own in sons, Jack, and Tommy. So prime became a father for the first time at age forty eight. Those shortened but. Fiona said that he was a very good father though he he was obviously sometimes absent as he toured. He would invariably return with a suitcase full of toys for the boys and said, it gave him a good excuse to toy stores which he liked doing anyway. How? Hanley's a really nice all around Guy Yeah. Hey. Hey. You you would have you'd be very hard pressed to find anybody who would ever say anything bad about Don Frye. If you please go look I because I. I. He released in spite of ourselves in nineteen, ninety, nine and souvenirs in two thousand. Then he took an unusually long break from recording before releasing fair and square in two thousand five. That one hit number fifty, five on the billboard album charts and Ned in his second grammy win in the category of best contemporary album. He and Mac Wiseman who was in his eighties Tom offered up an album of cover songs called standard songs for average people in two thousand seven. In, two thousand thirteen pride had a second bout with cancer. This time it was in one of his lungs. It was called Berry early, which was owed to the regular tests and x-rays that he had following his first cancer battle. Part of his long was removed, but because it was called. So early, no chemotherapy already, I should was necessary to stop. He told us this morning. A friend who happened to be a personal trainer ended up concocting very odd recovery therapy for prime. Him Run up and down a flight of stairs three times. Then he would throw him a guitar and make him a play two songs. And it wasn't the same songs ever get Tom to every time. The Guy would like literally Throw Guitar Adam and do and go like Paradise Sandstone. Them? Would have to play those two songs while he was out of breath running up and down steps. and. It obviously work that he was back on the road with a few months round. In two, thousand sixteen at the suggestion of his wife Prime released for better or worse it was a duets album featuring covers of country classics with a number of female artists that front hurt including Miranda Lambert. Casey most gripes Amanda shires. Leeann. AMAC Alison Krauss Susan Tedeschi Kathy Matteo, and Fiona Brian his wife. At the time it was the highest charting album of his career reaching number thirty on the billboard. Hot Two hundred. Album jars. Prion and Fiona who spent part of each year at at a home in her native Ireland as I mentioned earlier, took full ownership of oboe records when prime's friend and former manager Albany passed away. Fiona then began to prod prime into making a new record with the main reason being she does this this morning very bluntly that oboe in needed some new product product to sell. Pride had continued to play shows but had sold into a fairly light back lifestyle. He said he would generally sleep late everyday go to lunch at his favorite greasy meat and three restaurant washes car shoot poll, and then look at cars online. Well, into the night he had an affinity for old cadillacs and he owned several, but it didn't pay much money for any of them. He didn't realize how long it had been at that point said since he'd released an album of new material they told her just years ago. It had actually been thirteen years since he had done an album of new material. So Fiona book a room at a hotel in Nashville knowing that he likely wouldn't get any work done around the house where he said he tried to look busy for living. and the result was two, thousand, eighteen, the tree of forgiveness. As per usual received critical praise the album along with two singles from it were nominated for Grammy Awards that they didn't win them because you know people have actually grammy's were morons. This up debuted number that the tree of forgiveness debuted at number five on the billboard album chart the highest chart position John Prime ever achieved Rao. Prime those around him starting to notice a couple of things about his concerts one, the crowds were starting to get bigger. And that they were starting to get considerably younger. Now, that could be owed to longtime fans passing down their love of to their children. or it could be that a number of younger artists who who are very popular were extremely vocal in their praise of him including star Simpson. Brandi. CARLILE JASON IS BILL MARK Margaret Price, and power tillers. Todd Snider and Casey Must Graves. He was extremely complimentary of that group to he lost all his artists and they love back. But they would talk him up and interviews and on stage about. You know why did you write such and such a song? Well, you know because I listened to John Bronco. And I think that did start to make a difference especially as a lot of people I just mentioned probably Casey must graves and schedule Simpson especially because they were so popular that really think that started to make a real difference but so this is I don't even want to say that his career had a revival because prime never really went away but. Commercially and in terms of popularity like riding an all time high. His crowds had never been bigger. He had a lot of younger people showing up and he had just put out an album that hit the highest. Spot on billboard. Any of his albums had ever hit in his fifty years of recording music. The last person that I mentioned on that list was Casey scribes now. Who I'm I'm a huge fan of personally and John Ron. Absolutely loved. She actually wrote a song and you you guys may have heard it called burn one with John Prime Prime. Prin recounted on CBS. This morning that must graves and one of her friends actually managed to meet him at a club and tried to convince him to share a joint with them. At Arcot, it was a literal bucket list autumn for Casey must rights to smoke a joint. Which I aim high casey good for you. I mean. Very specific big. Yeah. But that's what you're. That's what your bucket list isn't bound man yeah. I made modest with Willie? Nelson whatever so. Y- he politely declined. Partly because at this point, he quit doing drugs he never really much of a pothead anyway said that he had a show to play that evening. Now I'm GonNa that that is per Crohn's retelling I read a story that recounted that the two of them were playing together on a cruise ship of some time when she was an up and comer that nobody had heard of, and maybe it was like out on the day. Like they had Isaac mix them a drink and. Go for like what does that strange smell when I say that there's three sides to every story there's Your side. Their side and then there's the truth, right? But. Whatever actually happened prime actually listen to the song burn with John Bryan a few weeks later and was absolutely floored a said not long after that she quote became Casey. Must Rides. He remained an enthusiastic fans of hers until the end of his life. Snyder's Snyder's first record L. and I know that you guys caught a little bit about hot snyder. On the based on a true story episode a few weeks ago because he did the song David Cooper. Hit his first record deal was actually with a boy records and hate, he referred to promise quote our Hank Williams. And you listen if you listen to some of prime songs. You can so here the influence on. Todd Snider in Casey Most Graves and Stargell Simpson and a lot of people that I just mentioned. It is it is. It is. It's. It's clear as day if you've listened to much Ron, how much he met to those people and how much influenced him well, okay. Can I can I? Can I go off on a tangent for like two seconds is. That I think with like Todd Snider and. With John. You're you're missing one major element of what makes them who they are. Most singer-songwriter will just pour out an emotion. And saying you know a lot. Love you this yet but none of them are telling pieces story. Whereas John Crying? Hell's the story. I joy is a storytelling. He's a singer songwriter this telling a story it's not just. Explaining emotions or explaining like one single situation like unwed fathers. Is telling a story. Is telling a story up paradise is telling a story like these. An so as day because. Yeah, that's That's that's what I'm saying like enjoy hearkens way back to like El Paso. Texas, you have a story. And, I think that's what sets them apart from a lot of singers now and. Of them. None of them seek none of them set out to write pretty little OP psalms. Yeah, they're just. They're just totally different people. Stars like that prins like that. Casey. Mo- scribes is like that still Simpson's like that. But but those three. Letter to me really carry that mantle that that prime did. The super. Literate Songwriter who tells the story exactly like you're talking about I? Agree with. That shot of a singular moment in time. Where we're like, yeah, I had never heard todd cider till I listen to DVD Cooper because I have obsession with the Uber and. It it. It lays out that story and it's it's I'm not disparaging three minute pop songs that just talk about him I like I like some of them very much. But but but if you listen to Snyder today because if you listen to him saying thin wild mercury if you hear him saying America's favorite pastime. He probably doesn't write those songs if he didn't grow up listening to John. because. Those are the those are a hundred percent exactly what you're talking about their songs either about obscure characters in history or they are. But but all of them are story songs and most people just don't don't have that guilt because they're not they're not singing. DD Don't did he do? Not You will not besmirch the good name of Manfred. Mann's Earth Band refunded my presence. You hear me we'll fight. Anyway. Perfect ONA pride did have a couple of ECCENTRICITIES as most artists dude? I think you'll enjoy the day. He never travelled without a bottle of Heinz Ketchup and a tube of Coleman. Spicy. Mustard. Okay I I refused to travel without a jar, of manase. Obviously, our at our I'm not going to we don't have Dukes, but we had the southern California version of that, which is best. All right as long as as long as it's not that that spreads stuff. Of. At one time the heater in prins aquarium broke while he was on the road and he returned to find his pet goldfish dead. Distraught, he took the body of his favorite fish, a pound and a half goldfish and put it in his freezer and just left it there for several months. Eventually had it mounted by a taxidermist and he hung it near his pool A place considered a prominent location. Was it relied ads in my dad do it I don't I don't think so but who Fiona said that Tron had many childlike qualities he loved Christmas and while he was single, he actually kept a Christmas tree in home year round. He often had birthday cake and ice cream served after every one of his concerts raising that quote it was always someone's birthday. He drove himself to concerts and issued expensive catering for quote, a twelve dollar Deli tray and a few six bucks. I can back this decision I know. We were actually going to talk about We're still doing the opening acts which you know we don't. We don't know what's happening with the opening accent will figure that out eventually. But we'RE GONNA talk about writers like the the contracts that the. Musicians have with. The grain EMINEM. EMINEM stuff, right? Yeah. Yeah and a that see that's that would have been on the list is like 'cause. Some of these people have insane writers. Like all right. We're you gonNA find forty eight white folks. You wear a short. Okay. True Story. A friend of mine went to in any body listened South Carolina will know there's a a A. specically, the Walmart of beer in South Carolina it's called. Greens. We. Grains Discount Beverages. So a friend of mine stopped in one time it was like you know because they always have a good supply of shiner products. and. A Lotta Times they'll have their seasonal brews and some other stuff. So buddy might stopped in to just check out what had and they had literally no China products. And he said Hey. You know I'm just wondering I just checking y'all could divorce shiner. You guys always have a lot of shiner and got Whittingham and said. Have you ever heard of a singer named Robert Earl keen. And my buddy said Oh. Yeah. Love Robert O'Kane they said okay. Well, he's planning at the Newberry Opera House tonight, which is right up the right from Columbia from those who don't know he said and they sent a got on here in like bodice Outta shot her I, guess he drinks a lot of it. Say. Drinks now she's in. All of it that they had at grains that night my rate. Okay. Here's another thing. Prime was a huge fan of archie comics. He started subscribing to art to archie comics when he was in his thirties. He said, he said quote I liked they put your age old Mary said Rolling Stone. It was quote to Johnny Prime Age forty three. I like jug head mainly and had this persona that he was shifting lazy. But he always kind of knew what was going on. Print did express a belief in God and he considered himself a Christian. The he said he did not like saying other Christians used the bobble. As a political weapon predict particularly against gays and transsexuals and. His feeling was that hey, you know the Bible is a book of love and acceptance. Pace. Intolerant. So why would you weaponize it against anybody? said that just get you had me with the good songwriting and eccentricities you wonder with that because that's exactly right. That is exactly right. in January of this year Prin received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Sadly it would stand as the last award, it would be able to excel. Up Fiona has actually tested positive for a strain of coronavirus in March and spent some time quarantined away from. Prime. On March twenty six ron was hospitalized after experiencing covid nineteen symptoms. A march thirtieth. tweeted that she had recovered, but the crown was in stable condition but unfortunately was not improving Roger Waters was among the main express support saying quote are John. Grant? Our friend Brown is in real trump. This friend of ours is full of love and always has been his whole life. Love has always been a powerful drug with love you with a genuine passion I can't even begin to describe. On April sixth with was the wedding anniversary for John and Fiona. Prime Fiona was called by doctor and told you needed to rush limbaugh spital. She said in a subsequent BBC interview that she felt like throwing up but that she was by his side for the last seventeen hours he spent on earth. Quote he was in deep sedation and hooked up to all kinds of machines I talked to him. I held his unresponsive hand a sang and played messages from our boys and from his brothers I played hours demand who was a brandon collaborator in a great singer, Singing Gospel songs that she sent me that night just for him. I told him things out forgotten to tell things I'd never told him. told him. He was beloved by the world that he had done wondrous things with his life and in the end I told him that my heart would break forever. But it could go on ahead and be with his mom and dad and his brother Doug and all those aunties that love Dale. I told him I would be okay and I would hold our three boys clothes and that we would always talk about grandpa all the time with the little ones. On April Seventh John. Prin. died of COVID nineteen complications at the age of seventy three. In accordance with his wishes as expressed in this home paradise, we heard earlier half of his ashes were scattered in Kentucky's Green River and half were buried next to his parents in Chicago. Friends and fellow musicians honored the legend and perhaps the most visceral reaction came from shooter Jennings. Now. For those who aren't familiar like his parents waylon Jennings and Jessi colter jennings a musician. And a lot like his light father shooter is not much one for holding tom so. Right in the wake of John Prin dying. Shooter tweeted quote there. Better be a rain out. Can I stop for a second and issue a warning? If you have if you have young ones listening. Cut US down for like thirty seconds because we're GONNA be into some not nice territory for for just a minute. Second. Skip ahead. About forty five seconds because TJ talks. Okay here we go. There better be a rain of redneck. Hell GonNa pour down on the bastards that made this virus that took John Prom from us. I'm fucking pissed and very saddened by the loss of an American icon Jennings tweeted. He took that down because he said it was written in anger and the replies. Polarizing and political, which was not his intention. Really, somebody's tweet became political shock. On Hey said prime's death hurt him and that his words quote changed my perspective and calm my emotions. A quote my dad used to crank I ain't hurting nobody in his car I. Remember the first time he heard it. We were in the car lightning one, hundred Nashville we went to the mall and bought the type immediately it didn't let go for months that song always made think of my dad I had the opportunity to tell Mr Pronk this the first. Time, I met him. He was just the best again in my hurt I lashed out looking to blame this pandemic. But I know that we all have a time and place to move on into the great beyond, and this was his at least we are all at hun we can use this time to celebrate Mr Prime and thank him or page on prime. Okay now am I'm only person that is amused by the idea of Waylon Jennings wandering around a mall like. Bob into the Food Portland the food court walks up to like a spyros. I house worst tire records at your Orange Julius. Julius thing. I tell you as long time since I've been to a mall. Did you know they got one whole store sells nothing but ladies Pani draws? Victorian got many secrets left off. White, in a mall. I liked that Casey Moss grave didn't really say anything about John's dance except for on April seventh she simply. tweeted one word which was heartbroken. and. We'll get to her just a second Stephen Colbert amounted to an owner wake for prime that featured Dave Matthews Brandi. Carlile Bruce Springsteen tweeted that he was crushed saying John and our new Dylan's together in the early seventies and he was never anything. But the loveliest guy in the world, a true national treasury and Songwriter for the ages we send our love and prayers to his family. Bette midler was so distraught over the death of her friends. She couldn't muster much more than a tweet that contain prance picture in the words he's gone. Seth Meyers said quote. No one wrote songs about. Human. Com with more grace and wit to quote him. He was in heaven before he died. Must guys honored him with a number of honored him a number of times a clothing. West. Burning one with Bernie one with you or not. You fulfill my bucket list a million times over but I'M NOT GONNA lie I'm still holding out. She said, she saint her dad craft wise in her life. Once when my mom died and once when I got to send with John Prime. Now. Picture show was an online tribute concert because we have to do everything virtually Nile. Virus. featuring a number of people that I've already mentioned scribes. Jackson is Bell shires Carlisle along with Vince. Gill. Bonnie rait Kevin Bacon curious edgewood Billy Bob Thornton and bill. Murray. Murray said at one point he was in quote Hawk although not an actual depression that was robbing him of all his enjoyment. And this is like the most name dropping story could possibly. But his friend, Gonzo journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson. told him that he should listen to John Prime Music. And that did the trick. the, special featuring a never before a Saint Pablo footage some never before saying Kabul footage of prime discussing his signature cocktail a handsome johnny. Coppola. It is comprised of the exact recipe is you feel the cocktail glasses ginger, Ale? Then pour in some are with Abbado at Ginger. Ale. Then drop in a wedge of La more lemon from exactly six inches above the glass but don't squeeze it. That's it. And it does make it. I don't do that as many of your business. Is your sister and this is a business endeavors Sir a new song was. During that special called I remember everything. among the most poignant tributes though was one from Elvis Costello. He said that he discovered prime when he happened onto a forty five in Liverpool Record Ben that contained Sam Stone on one side. And Paradise on the other. He wondering what kind of art that prime might have created of the pandemic that claimed his life he said listeners might want to hear songwriters quote loudly sound the alarm or quite lampoon huxterism. But said Prom would have written about quote and exhausted nurse quarantined in her own addict away from her frightened children or an Ode to the fruit picker who puts the strawberry on our Sunday tar or the delivery driver or Shell. Filler can make sure there's food to purchase for someone to put on the family's table because they same like scenarios or portrait's that might be found in his catalogue. Running songs like that would, of course, require someone with a lot of empathy and probably it would have required John Pratt. That's all. That was really good attain. Thank you. That was good.

Pelosi has a salon scandal on her hands...Joe Biden takes questions from the media and it goes very badly. Phoenix BLM Mural on the way?

The Conservative Circus w/ James T. Harris

2:00:21 hr | 11 months ago

Pelosi has a salon scandal on her hands...Joe Biden takes questions from the media and it goes very badly. Phoenix BLM Mural on the way?

"You are listening to the conservative circus podcast with me James T Harris sponsored by. Nationwide Vision. As Biden balls in the polls, the media slides get here. As a gentleman. Ages. To serve at. Circus. TV. Address the more desperate the media becomes to let the corrupt incompetent Joe Biden. The bigger and more numerous are the lies they are free flowing. We've been treated to to Democrat campaign workers posing as journalists. And other Democrats throwing excrement against the wall for five years to elect one corrupt Democrat after another. No matter how obvious allies become the more they repeat them. It's it's mind boggling as we're watching the so-called news. Repeat lies invent lies create all of this this this badness. Then you get the real deal right before you, you get the candidate right before you. And they can't perform. Joe Biden head a press conference today his second press conference since his a doomed. Convention. And he just drawn on with the regular talking points. We'll get to that later in the show. But something happened after his prepared remarks. You had questions from the media, but that's new. The reporters were chosen by Joe. Biden staff. So, we know that these questions were preplanned and we know that this was orchestrated, but there was one reporter. Who slipped a question in? That was Peter. Doocy a Fox News. Right after the the plan to questions from the Shil reports whereas the Biden campaign cut the live feed. But about there was one station. That kept reporting. They kept the thing. That will C. SPAN So people were watching C. Span saw Peter doocy ask. Joe Biden an excellent question I mean an excellent question. Joe Biden Peter doocy have a little bit of history. So as we as you're listening to this, realize of that, there were two big big mistakes number one. By the should have just walked off stage. Number two. He actually took a real question from a real reporter but the power of our example. Thank you very much for. You. I know you always ask hostile questions but go ahead. and. Matt. Moore. You said you warned president trump in January that there was going to be a pandemic and what needed to be done. It you knew that then why we've still hosting. Crowded campaign rallies in. March we'll see now there it is. This lie of that was told by Biden his ex been going on since the beginning of the year. I warned president trump about this pandemic coming I. Warn President Trump about the corona virus. He didn't do the right thing. Here's president trump's fought the way he has handled this pandemic. It's criminal that was part of the lines coming from Joe Biden. So Peter. DOOCY. Ask them great question of you or warning president trump about about all of this back in January. How come you were still holding rallies in March? Now. I want to prepare you. Because Joe Biden attempted to answer this question. The problem is. He didn't. He lost his place he started rambling and it was a nerve ing. Now, what I talked about was not what had to be done when I said you gotTa take this seriously. You've got to insist that we have access to. Insist that we have access in China to find out for ourselves. We had forty four people from CDC there. You cannot continue to talk about. The president of China saying he's done a marvelous job. He's doing a great great job when it got up to March I kept saying look you've got the invoke you remember. I? Think I was a I I may be mistaken person calling about the Defense Production Act we don't have enough of that I. It's amazing. We use phrase like P P and the public knows what that is now but protective equipment and gear and ventilators. All right. Ross. Did did a Joe Biden answer the question yet? On? No no, he didn't a we continue Joe Biden. Authority usually to go out there now and don't wait. And don't wait to talk about the need to have masks don't wait to talk about. That's when I when I talked about and then began to lay out for him. We actually had a conversation. I can't remember when it was I. Think it was. It was in that range maybe. I. said he said Biden loss to help WANNA talk to him. So I talked to my laid out what I thought should be done to be able to reopen safely. And he was very polite. He listened and he said you think about it and that was the end of it. He goes on like this for another four minutes. He goes on for four minutes rambling. And then abruptly stops. And exits stage. Right. I'm telling you. Biden. Is Very much diminished and what his family and with the Democrat Party is doing to him is reprehensible. But. This is who do the ring. So. We're going to have to continue to fight until the refugee. No calls it I. Guess The wrath is going to be the elections. It gets worse because of course, this is an obvious lie here is Joe Biden and back in March a more cogent Joe. Biden. Coronavirus. Emanated from China. National emergency worldwide alert. The American, people need to have a president who they can trust what he says about it. That he is going to act rationally about it. Almost like this, this is where credibly a president is most needed. As he explains what we should and should not do. This is no time for donald trump's record of hysteria jennifer we have sterkel xenophobia hysteria. And fairmont coronal xenophobia. fearmongering see, this is what he accused the president of in March. Oh, I got with him in January it's a lie. It's all a lie and the fact that that question had to be slipped by a real reporter speaks volumes. Of where the media, the media is complicit nece, and so you know this especially if you listened to the conservative circus but I just have to remind people that because we have new listeners every single day come into the the circus. The media's lying to you. The media and the Democrat Party are in cahoots. Today Joe Biden is on his way to Kenosha Wisconsin and I have to tell you. He may be walking into a trap I'll tell you what the drap is. At six eighteen. You are listening to the conservative service. I am your ringmaster, Jamesy Harris. Joe, Biden and is on his way to Wisconsin is going to be the first time. That Joe Biden was. With Wisconsin link about two years. He hasn't been there in two years and when you couple the fact that that Hillary Clinton hasn't been there for what she'd never visited. Does she ever go back to Wisconsin. In a way the reason why Joe Biden is headed to Wisconsin is because president trump visited Kenosha Wisconsin a few days ago. The Democrats were begging insisting that that president trump not visit. They said that the state needed to heal. They said that president trump showing up, there would be chaos. Instead president trump was met by large crowds cheering and they were very appreciative of the support of the federal dollars that we're going to be coming. I should say president trump brought with him. The scoring to go towards rebuilding Kenosha, of course, which was destroyed. By ANTIFA black lives, matters, or rioting, and looting. Joe Biden said he asked to go there. He says that you now unlike the Democrats who did not want trump they're democrats want biden there why is now the right time for you to go to Kenosha what do you hope to accomplish I well I Respond to all the leaders up there and although I have an outstanding call. With the governor. Delve staff because. In, there's been overwhelming request that I do come. because we're going to do is we heal. Together people together. And so my purpose in going. To do just that to be a positive influence. on what's going on talk about what needs to be done and tried to see if there the beginning mechanism, the bring. The the folks together we have to heal this is about making sure that that we move. We move forward what I said. As as biting goes down in the polls, you got the media telling more walkers more big lives. You need to go to Canossa to heal what your presence is going to heal the people of Kenosha, all of a sudden you supposed to be Jesus what. Stop It. So who would you rather have their somebody who can bring in federal dollars that could bring it relief who can bring in support for the police or somebody who can foster the healy? These words that the leftovers around we need to heal we need to come together president trump is not a healer he doesn't bring people together a healer. Wasn't that that's supposed to be Barack Hussein Obama wasn't he supposed to bring people together wasn't are supposed to be like racial harmony because of Obama who was the less chocolate Jesus or as well as we call him here in the South West Cocoa Hey sues Susan Telemundo gone. Yeah No. Now. And isn't it? Funny? Oh, the governor have a good relationship with he wants me to come for what to heal. Know Joe Biden is headed to to Kenosha Wisconsin because he could read the polls or at least I should say his staff can read the polls innate seed the reception. That president trump received and they can read that a lot of the Democrats are disgusted with the but the party support of Antigua black lives matter. Joe Biden. If you were President, what would you do to ensure that people are kept safe? Like. If you were President again, neither one of these questions. that. was planted and of course, the Biden staff you know knows you to go to here's the report if you were president. What would you do to make the people safe list this If you were president. What would you do to ensure that people are kept safe in situations like these first of all, I wouldn't incite violence. I condemn it when it occurred. I would move to the vast majority. A police officer good. Decent on. Tape, see we didn't finish his thought here. First of all, I would not incite violence. Okay. Well, president trump has incited by this. However, a Democrats have incited by listen been inciting violence for years. maxine waters has incited violence. What would you do? You wouldn't site violence they backed it up for me arouse you witness in sight violence were that's all the Democrats have been doing. But what else would you do president or if you were President Biden to to make people feel safe personal I wouldn't incite violence. I condemn it. When it occurred stopped deter he had he had a convention. They had four days. and. There was not one condemnation of the violence has been going on in this country not even a mention of it. The first thing you would do was you. Know. You you didn't. You didn't do that. You had plenty of opportunity on your role to the presidency to address his and you did not. This is the craziness that I'm talking about. And, this is how the media media's going to continue to lie for this candidate. We're GONNA turn our attention to the local news. Because we have a the shocking story that former executives of a Hacienda health care. have been indicted. And the facilities is the pay eleven million dollars over fraud. There is someone. Who was trying to point out the corruption at Hacienda years ago and he got rebuffed. We're going to talk to that individual. At, six, thirty three. Sean Hannity Works Everyday to make America great again, listen at one on five, fifty KFI and on FM at ninety five point five, hd two. You're listening to the conservative circus. I and your ringmaster James T Harris Hacienda healthcare in the news you remember Hacien- healthcare. That's where the incapacitated woman was raped and gave birth. Former HOC- in the healthcare officers William Timmins, and Joseph. Molly have been indicted for an elaborate alleged white collar fraud scheme that built Arizona taxpayers out of millions of dollars. This is according to the Attorney General Mark Myrna Vich. The indictments come as a vindication for Tim Jeffries. He's a former Arizona Department of economic security and and his staff has been vindicated. And right now we have a Tim Jeffries innocent to ring of the conservative circus. Tim Jeffries a former director of the Arizona Department of Economic Security. He tried to clean the stuff up. He tried to clean this out of the department. He got cleaned out Mr Jeffreys I have a feeling that you're probably feeling very vindicated today with the news of these indictments for the former CEO of Hacienda, healthcare Now thank you so much James T I. Certainly am I'm gratified that fills tenants has finally been indicted for the malfeasance and corruption that my. Team and I were certain existed well over. Four years ago I wanNA thank Attorney General Brnovich is fine team of special investigators and the grand jury for finally lowering the boom on those who failed some of the most vulnerable and treasure government and our state. Namely a defenseless stand Carlos Apache woman that was horrifically right. You know Mr Jeffreys. We talked about this back at the time we talked about We had you WanNa, you were detailing the the corruption you tried to expose and prosecute this fraud by Hussien Healthcare back at Twenty, fifteen, twenty sixteen, and you were blocked at every turn that I remember that right? You are well within the zone of what took place within thirty days of my directorship at D. S. Pazienza was placed at the center of my radar screen that was in April Twenty fifteen and throughout twenty fifteen, it was increasingly clear. Things were not right. They work her up and actually they. They smelled at Hacienda. It was in twenty sixteen. That my team without help from any other agency dove deep into whatever data we had to. Draw it leaked a High level picture of what we thought was multi-million dollar corruption at the end of my directorship in October twenty sixteen that Turney General's office opened a criminal investigation. But when I was ousted in November twenty sixteen shortly thereafter that criminal investigation became a civil investigation which continues to confound me. To jefferies is the former director of the Arizona Department of Economic Security. A He is in the center ring of the conservative circus you said that continues to to hound you a message Jeffries. My understanding is that Hacienda healthcare is referenced in Your Defamation Lawsuit Against the State of Arizona and other words in your defamation lawsuit against her boss. Governor Ducey. Indeed I followed my defamation lawsuits over three years ago, and the state has spent over a million dollars in hardy soft costs to try and vanquish me in the legal system. But it's people know I'm not WanNa go quietly into the night. Well before. The horrific revelation of an Apache woman being raped at Hacienda Hacienda with placed in my lawsuit a full day new solar system is a great way to improve your home and bring relief to you and your family all year long.

Goal solar go to sunny energy dot solar year before. When the key evidentiary points of what we were attacking during my directorship, which is corruption corruption, not just with in the respected entity but our sense that corruption went well beyond it. So With these recent felony indictments. It certainly brings. To mind why the governor's team are fighting. So aggressive late to the tune of a million dollars to keep everything we seek about Hacienda. Out of the court. Jeffries. I remember speaking to you back in the day and you were saying to my audience that you were hired by this administration to to to do exactly what you were trying to do to clean up the corruption. But once the stuff started to get exposed, that's when your troubles began that. Right? Yup The governor's office West highly supportive of my efforts until they weren't the governor wanted to the worst ten percent of every agency weeded out We had read it out to percents the governor wanted to attack fraud waste and abuse, and I'm an easy. Google one can see I was attacking with no regard whatsoever for special interest in hindsight perhaps I should have been. More, wary of. Politics in the knives that were being sharpened, but you know. Americans are sick. They're sick of the swamp. They're sick of how much politics stinks and in retrospect I plead that without any length I attacked fraud waste in abuse as I did I'm I'm very pleased that we attacked posse and the way they did I grieve as a citizen. It took the rate. Of A defenseless San Carlos Apache women. For the state to finally do what they should have done almost a half a decade ago. Tim Jeffers. I WanNa thank you very much for your time and again i. understand why you feel vindicated of this stuff is being covered up I. Hope that your lawsuit continues to shed some light on the corruption that took place at Hand Hussien. Healthcare. We're going to talk about the Queen Nancy Pelosi boy is she ever catching it over her her getting her hair? Did he legally that's coming up? Numbered Riley update this morning nine fifty now on five fifty K. of why I don't FM at ninety, five, point five, hd two. You're listening to. Serve Circus. Your ringmaster James Harris Nancy Pelosi. All League how? This was not gonNa go away because we're too deep into the election. It is going to leave a mark. We'll. We'll see how big of a mark is going to leave, but the Nancy Pelosi. Of course she got caught getting her hair it in a salon and San Francisco, the problem is salons are still on lockdown. You at the owner of the Salon who has security cameras up and all this kind of stuff and she turned though security camera footage over to Fox News. Fox News, of course played in this is a huge story. Nancy, Pelosi a winner hair looking. Lovely. was asked a question by reported. You know what's up with that Nancy Pelosi how come how come you? Can Get your hair did in the salon where the rest of the people of San Francisco can't. No I've been there many over the years I've been there many times I appreciate appreciate the question and let me just say this I take responsibility for trusting. Other word of a neighborhood Salon that I've been to over the years many times and that when they said what we're able to accommodate people one person at a time. And that we can set up that time. I trusted that as it turns out, it was a setup so I take responsibility for calling for setup. I'm going to say. She. She she said, it was a setup. She was set up. Okay I take full responsibility for being set up says the speaker of the House. And then she went even further well, I don't I think that they'll at this salon me an apology. Adding up but I will say this in fairness to him in sympathetic to him we have to get our country moving again and I will not let this subject take away from the fact that we have one, hundred, eighty thousand plus people who have died from this virus since we pass the bill more than half of those people have died since we passed the legislation. Wow, she blamed the salon she blamed the salon owner for for for setting her up you know what? She took the the Marion Berry defense. That edged set me up. were. Shown. See. That's Berry Berry talk to the police officers this after he got called some Akerson Crack Smoking crack with a with a with a garden tool woman of the night. That each set me up see that's the same thing. Nancy plus you saying that it set me up. Yeah. My secretary made the appointment but still I will set up. Caught on camera. Will you know what the hair salon owner was on Tucker Carlson last night tekkers acid did you said that you h that you sent her up? I. Was In shock actually I was waiting for it to be not true. And then. True and so. I just found it. So hypocritical because we have been told that if we ovan. Prior, to being able to open in Lodi that we would. Get our license revoked, and so it was just pretty much pure Shar she's a shock wait a minute I can't be open. I can't be giving cut eleven of Roswell. Tucker Carlson. We asked him directly I mean, did you set this woman Nancy Pelosi claims on camera the orchestrated a quote setup to entrap her into getting your hair blown out without a mask. Did you. Now. Absolutely. Not How would you have done that I mean can you prove that this wasn't a diabolical setup designed to bring down the speaker of the house by blow drying her hair I? She had called the Stylus and or her sister did and made the appointment. The appointment was already booked. So there's no way I could have set that up and I've had a camera system in there for five years I mean I didn't. Go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in the set her up. So, that's absolutely false. Here's what's crazy though the the the shopowner. The Salon owner is getting harassed. As a matter of fact she's getting so harass does she told Tucker Carlson she may not be able to continue doing business in that neighborhood in that city. What are you gonNA. Do you GonNa stay in the city? Do you think in San Francisco? I don't think. So I. The hard part of all this is that have been not community for twelve years. And sense this happened. I. Have received. Nothing but hate. Text messages death threats. They're going to burn my hair salon down my yelp page is just unbelievable with bad reviews Is, just, it's sad that my community. Is. Pulling this when they're saying that I threw her under the bus when I didn't. So that's hurtful but I think I think I'm pretty much done there. So. I, think that's one of the most heartbreaking stories have heard a long time long time and I just want to restate for the people who are hating you for telling the truth I don't consider this political. You don't seem like a political person. and I'm just sorry this is happening. It's absolutely crazy. So Nancy Pelosi, the most powerful woman politically contrary she breaks the rules. See all the rules are set up for us. She can break the rules she gets caught breaking the rules and who gets punished the salon or yeah, two tiered system. A two tiered system. This one needs to stick it. Will it end up ending her career? Well, probably not We. Almost got a B. L. M. Plaza right here in Phoenix but something happened you need to stay tune at seven Oh three. We will get into that a new solar system is a great way to improve your home and bring relieved to you and your family all year long but especially hot summer months James Harris here for sunny energy contact my friends at sunny energy with the virtual selves consultations and no contact installations even covert nineteen we'll get in the way there are so many incentives.

Black lives, matters bureau headed down Phoenix. Gentlemen Children of all ages. Johnson to. Serve as circus. Names. The watch debate, black lives, matter of your oldest downtown Phoenix hitting a controversial brick wall yesterday. Up for consideration by the Phoenix City Council. And apparently there was a little bit of pushback to ring of the conservative circus. We have SAM stone. He is a chief of staff for city councilman, Salle de Blasio, and Sam. I wanted to get Turkey because you were probably right there in the thick of it I wanted you to to give us an update on the black lives matter bureau what's going on with that day? A little bit of pushback James. Let's talk about the fact we got more calls and every other office in that building got more calls on this black lives matter mural ninety, nine percent of them saying, heck. No. then. We have on any other issue since in the free and a half years I've been there. You know this whole movement is suck accord I've been saying that ever since Kenosha last week the dad was a turning point where people actually got a real glimpse of what's going on with these protests. With these the looting and the rioting. Of course we had some breakouts here in Phoenix nightly. And Scottsdale but something happened last week where people are now really seeing this and they're starting to reject the whole movement in their neighbors and I'm I shouldn't say I'm surprised I'm more gratified than so many citizens lit up the phone lines down there at Phoenix City Hall. I'll tell you we were shocked and it was unbelievable experience. This I mean really incredible. The citizens have put this thing on really thin ice, but I want to warn everyone. It's still standing they. You know what they did yesterday is you have four members on that subcommittee that we're going to hear it, and if they passed, it was going to the full council. They didn't have the votes. It was GONNA be two to they knew it. So, rather than hear it and have it lose and have to wait at least a year to bring it back. They pulled it from the agenda, and now they're going to talk about it behind closed doors. With the full council in executive session and then decide what to do. So it could come right from there. Literally within twenty four hours, it could be on a council agenda. What needs happen is what the people We the people need to continue to call continue to them barred or do we wait to begin a heads up on what's coming up next? You know I would wait till you get a heads up at this point I mean I think everyone in the building. Thank goodness. Thank you everyone if you're listening if you call if you emailed us, thank you because you put this thing you know you put the thing a position where I think it's not gonNA. Happen. I mean that's my hope at this point but I I don't think's going to happen and it's Because of you. So we'll let you know if you're not following South CCRI on twitter and facebook do that. We always let you know when these things are coming up, get on there and next time if it does pop up, be ready to come out guns blazing right away I'm telling you this is we have to get involved in our local government. So this was one of those heart warming stories we have. Sam. Stone he's the chief of staff or city councilman He's innocent touring people are celebrating the fact the phoenix parts are going to be open in one week Osama seriously is is the open. Air, the. Open space is going to be any cleaner and free of Covid next week than it is this week. Of course, not James and they're no freer or cova than they were last week and and that's why we put. We've been pushing for this. We've been pushing for the reopening of all of our facilities. Our libraries are parts, amenities, things. You know people can take reasonable precautions they can decide what risks they want from themselves. This government is your nanny thing has got to go. but look at least now, kids can get out there. This is emotion we put forward with other Williams in gym wearing it got past at least you can go out there. You can get your kids back out on the soccer field, the baseball field, a softball field, and actually use the bathroom next to them and not in the bushes like everyone's been doing for six months were you know to that point? You go into some facilities where the bathrooms are closed, the elevators are closed and what are you to do I mean these ordinances are actually making the city, a less sanitary, a the these lockdowns are making the places less sanitary unless of course, you are sheltering in place and I don't think people are doing that at the same rate with. A few months ago sandstone. Not Doing it at the right they did it a few months ago. They're not doing it the right they did a month ago. People are really over at this point. If you're out there, you see it come on drive around the people are out in the streets are going places they're doing things don't want to be cooped up anymore. There's really no good reason to continue keeping them up. I. I've had this discussion with numerous people, but you cannot look at two months now of essentially no deaths. Not case load increase in Sweden which has done nothing but banned gatherings of more than fifty people. And think that this thing is the threat that it's being made to. By some of our government leaders. It's just absurd. This is the problem some of our governor a government leaders are still saying this is the big threat and they're still holding I believe citizens hostage what in the hope of getting more federal funds just for the joy of control whatever it is Sam Stone I. Think. Now what they're doing is they're the they have a fire a little bit too close to a powder keg. The fire is way too close to the powder keg. I mean look one of the things that's been talked about 'cause everyone wants to assume that it's only these police killings or at least a left want to say it's only these police killings backwards creating all the violence. No. The lockdowns contributing to this wave of violence. We've seen around the country because you have all the kids in the country Boardman home and nothing to do, and they're getting riled up online by some idiot friends and going out and Creighton mischief. I mean mostly what you see in the streets when you're seeing these these acts of violence. Are College Age middle class or middle class white kids. It's pathetic. It truly is a Sam Stone I WANNA. Thank you very much for weighing into giving us the background was happening. I also WANNA give a shout out to Melissa Hamilton because a a she tipped me off last week that this was going down and I know that part of what was going on as far as the response to the public was because of hers her her run of for Mayor Against K. Geigo, the mayor of a Phoenix listen. I don't think that we can let our guard down. I truly believe that in the next coming months in especially at president. Trump wins. Part of the new normal for we the people is to be very much involved in local governance. A we are going to have to really truly embrace our constitutional responsibilities our a right. You know talk about my I have rights, I have freedoms. You know I think it was a one of the older Russian or Soviet dissidents who said, you know there's two lungs rights and responsibilities are the two lungs of a republic of a democracy. We're going to have to be involved. So I WANNA be I WANNA do a little temperature check. Why is it? Why is it that we're getting pushback against the BLM's? In the valley here, but in other places is being, let run free. Why is it when we're turn on television set? We see in some cities this thing is out of control, but there seems to be a fighting chance going on right here in the valley six, zero, two, two, six, zero, fifty, three, four, another way to put this are you ready for a be L. M. Mural in your local neighborhood? We'll take your calls at seven eighteen. You're listening to the conservative circus. I. Am you're. You're ringmaster. James Harris. Do you. Really want, a b. l., m. a mural in your in your downtown. Serious, question. Because one could be there in the near future. What would happen if that were to take place telephone number six, zero, two, two, six, zero, fifty, three, ninety, four. Let us go to the phones. Lucy. In Phoenix. Welcome to the local to the conservative circus you wanna see a b. l.. Mural in your downtown. No I don't I wanNA tell you a little story of what happened along North Central Avenue, the north central homeowners. Association many of those trees they have replaced that have died. Started of. Put Blue Ribbons on all the trees and supportive the police they did that two weeks ago the city came and took them all down. They put them back up on Saturday the city came on Sunday and took them all down we and our neighborhoods. It was a movement that was going to start through the city. Now, we're putting them on trees that we own in our yard. There's some down central, our seventh avenue that they haven't taken down, but when this city starts going against. Blue Ribbons on trees to support the police, and now they want to support a Marxist organization that's going to be painting downtown. No people are up in arms. People are woke along central. Avenue after what happened and People that have heard about this were getting the word out to try blue ribbons around your trees. They can't do anything to us when they're all in our own property Lucy, I wanNA thank you very much for sharing that with the audience because you you're making a profound point here you. We are trying to show support for the police especially after the riots that took place in downtown of Phoenix or should say the protesting. And he'll. There's there's two sides to this possibly three but only one is being supported by local government and that's the one as anti police. So you're actually going to consider putting a b. l. m. mural downtown, but the citizens who live down there citizens who pay taxes down there the citizens who tried to do business down there they're not allowed to show in their ways support for the police that is patently absurd and it's also dangerous Angela in Phoenix a welcome to the conservative circus. Are you ready to see a b. l. m. the euro in your downtown? I do not and I'm GONNA rally against that change is hard as I. can it was great to hear what he had to say because it's so reflective of This valley I am a black woman born and raised here I grew up in was born in West fate it's grew up in south and I am a contractor homeowner renter I work with rich contractors in in true I worked with with small contractors. South south of south, East Valley. I've been all over the place I own home a homeland in Morgan Arizona and I have been to fund their state and this city reflect all people and we never had a knee to have black lives matters. He's kind of just this insulting to me these things being pushed on and especially the small black community that we have here we've all been very Say Middle. Class. In all of our living here I go the communities of blacks here, and they know me and We have not had incidents that they couldn't resolve I pushed against some of the things happening again, start chief of police she is amazing. The I know directly those persons who need those counting as personal childhood friends and neighbors, and they know me and they know I've spoken out on this channel before thirty years ago I haven't stopped since and and I I'm sorry. Let me ask you something. Angela. Could you bring up? You bring up a very good point just a small black community here in the valley here in Phoenix, and I didn't think about this before I'm not really into to identity politics. But when you get the black lives matter stuff, you get the, you know naturally pushing it upon a community is sort of like. You know tars and feathers that community everybody within that community may not may not you know believe in or back whatever the latest movement is and yet they're expected to especially if you are, there's not a whole lot of you. So imagine this movement to put the Brl limb mural downtown could be adversely affecting folks people of Color who lived down there who disagree. Extremely that and I don't know that you know we have a very large Lgbtq community that is very. All. This FDA here been blending living peacefully in Phoenix Arizona and the incidences that have occurred and the flares that have occurred tad resolution and could've been resolved differently than eating protests and marches, and they could have been talked through because. We have lived. You're doing this for a long time and I. We don't need the black lives matter Niro Plastic Valley brought in by George, Soros and company to on the Internet everybody you know it's is really out there is not hard to connect the dots anymore Angela bill is not. And I, think that a lot of people as our first caller sitter, you know they're woke. They've been seeing what's happening on the television they don't agree with this. And our last caller was saying, you know you have a very diverse community. especially in our downtowns. I considered moving downtown. When we first moved to the Valley I'm we were looking downtown. but it truly was the actors speaking people who live down there and speaking to the police and all the you know what there's. There's this element that very element the radical element that wants to put a b. l.. M. Ural up the radical element that whilst to have radical oversight over the police. That's was scared of me off. I WanNa live in a community that supports the police. And if you are trying to do just that and the city comes down on you, you got a problem. So so the fight goes on. But unlike other communities in the nation here in the valley, there's it's a mixed bag out a lot of conservatives. And they have not been summarily dismissed. We have a lot of good people of conscious and that is why there's a resistance. To the radical left at has to keep up more people have to get involved because it's easy to lose. You know we're going to talk to a politician. At, seven thirty three who has received death threats from the radical left this is not going to surprise you but I think it's going to disheartened you just a little bit but that's all right fast and safety belts that's coming up next. Rushbo. Rush Rush. Limbaugh today and ten, on five, fifty KFYI and on FM at ninety five point five, hd two, you're listening to the conservative circus I have your ringmaster James t heiress this is not a surprise to you. There's a lot of political violence out there I mean. Crazy political bias violent because it's happening to conservatives is not getting the media coverage that it should be. A. We all heard about the young man who defended himself with the AR fifteen. And and shot to people in self defense that were coming after him. But we don't hear a lot of stories about a a rare reported about conservatives who are being hurt injured and even killed. Because of leftists it's happening. If you watch the convention. You did not see on the nightly news, how the people who attended the president's nomination speech, how they were harassed and bullied. We did see Ron Rand Paul and his wife get harass. But it's happening lot. An. In the ring conservative circus, we have representative Paul, Gosar and representative I come to understand that some death threats have been leveled against you as well. Yesterday you a I understand that you received death threats from some Mark Kelly supporters. Absolutely Janke once again, you know the left is intolerant Alternatives and you know when you go to like for example and people in the co-founders Patrisse cullors. If you go to her her and look her up, you'll see video where she actually says she's the Marxist and that she believes in violence and we see over and over again we see a guy a leftist who identify as black lives matter showing up with a flame thrower. Thrower. so I mean, you know they're they're they're very intolerant. Does have any other ideals there? and. After this coronavirus escapade where we actually experience socialism in real time, people are coming around to understanding that the conservative acid is the right message and build up more frantic people on the other side. You know you mentioned this flame storing Antifa guy that was up in Wisconsin and a when he was arrested he would unmanned and arrested he fell into the fetal position started. started. Crying just burst into tears and he is the child from a very, very rich family, very wealthy family and Wisconsin and I think your point with the people being locked up because of the VIC shutdowns of people who have nothing to do time on their hands they fall into these different ideologies is causing them to become like keyboard warriors only from behind the mask and against politicians. It is, and then you have people James TV like on Teeny who flamed the fire out the flames and just so gasoline on it by calling every which name you can to myself. Andy a new solar system, a great way to improve your home and bring relief to you and your family year long.

Every is across the board and once again Intolerance in. You know these people used words like racist and xenophobic, and you know what? I was always taught that you ought to look in the mirror when you use names like that because. If you're using. You're actually the person actually who's guilty of it. There is a lot of projection going on right now especially, with the Left, we have representative Paul Gosar in the center ring of the conservative circus. Let me change gears up one moment when is moving date for the Washington Monument. Never All these all these icons, all of these I should say memorials, all of these buildings aw they're they're under attack. We're seeing that the left wants to take down of the confederacy they want to take down Washington Down Jefferson, how long will it be before? They start to go to the mall in Washington DC and remove those America symbols. They're gonNA push push push and the reason being James T is down the wrong side of history. You know. So I guess they there's a point to them A. They don't want to be looked at as on the wrong side of history over and over and over and over again Instead of acknowledging that we're an imperfect people utilizing these symbols to show a time where man actually our culture of the United States actually ascended and beat back impropriety. You know those are the things that we ought to celebrate but to see what was going on in America today, there were the most racist nation that it's it's in it's in the everyday culture. You gotta be kidding name me one other country in the world. That has the freedoms, liberties and opportunities that this country doesn't have. Yes. There's there's there's going to be an all always will be some type of irritation or animosity between different peoples. But we should be better than and rise above that and I. It's really sad But but also you have to remember that they're also attacking the enforcement aspects. They don't want enforcement. You know they don't want to have guns they don't WanNa have people defending themselves well, I wake up I. I'll tell you don't be coming out to rural America and particularly rural Arizona. Because These people are gonNA defend their culture. They're gonNA defend their property and they're gonNA defend America I happen to agree with you congressman. Gosar also think that that question these two are very first question. You have people who are in a position who they do not celebrate nor do they want to even recognize the values of that this country holds away what made great. and. So we're seeing violent actions, but if they take it to the wrong place. They're going to find a resistance. Funny. They're going to find resistance among Americans. We have some some real genetics real of freedom a first amendment issues happening are breaking out all over our college campuses but there's also word that there may be a big fat scam going on when it comes to university attendance and covert will talk about that at seven, forty eight.

Talking to save. You're listening to the circus. Ringmaster James Hairs. If you have kids in university. You've probably heard the rumors. We're going to find out soon. Enough but University of parents should be prepared to welcome their students back home. What? Yeah The plans according to staff are to lure students back to campus in order to make a quick buck on door material a dorm rentals. Meal tickets, and in person a lesson fees. Was the deadline to drop classes without the possibility of receiving a refund passes? The universities will announce high rates of infections and sin the students home. If the plans involved keeping secrets they are already abysmal failures a desk just last week. We had a Wisconsin radio. This is the J. Weber. He's a good friend of mine. He started discussing this and I was like, wait a minute what Wait a minute what. The Sky. Positive case numbers will be released to to two ready and not. So able media often several days or weeks ahead of time. The fear porn will spread far and wide on social media. Carefully choreographed outrage from concerned adults will spark fear in the hearts of parents and they will happily write off the costs incurred to date as lessons learned. That's what he was talking about. You see this article. whereas this from this University of Arizona you of A. Screening for covert nineteen via dorms raw sewage what yeah. It puts a real twist on poop for power. This is the New York. Post Little. Pooper power that's as Gwen more. Congresswoman Gwen more from Wisconsin who had the best convention speech the very opening lack of Wisconsin anyway. University of Arizona study in the feces in the sewer system to test for Covid nineteen and might have already stopped a possible outbreak Don Don Don. Out to the University of Oklahoma. Over in Wisconsin U W Madison. Down in Alabama. All the rage are the rumor among the students is, Hey, you know what? As soon as we get past a certain point where you know you can't get the refund that's when they're gonNA pull the plug and students are already being prepared to be sent home. And some colleges they're saying, you know what? A students are not following these social distancing rules are not wearing the mask they're going out and doing what college students do go. The parties are going dancing they're consuming adult beverages and they're not. Following the guidelines. What does this mean? How was this going to impact you? What do you think about the students who were forced to borrow money to return to cap his life? Oh. They're going to be promised Loan forgiveness going to be impromptu gay to get reimbursed really sort of like how that whole rent assistance is working. This is very, very hot rumor going on and whether or not Arizona, State University has bought into a a similar plan or not. The staff there privately shook their heads when Arizona State University President Micro dropped a tweet on Friday announcing increase in cases like. Oh. Here's the Crow tweet. This is the latest update on Asu's Covid nineteen management strategy. It includes an overview of cases within our university community. Then, he put a link on there. So people are starting to gear up. For the very real possibility. That because of an outbreak of the Cova which meet. Yeah. Let's not forget that it has a ninety eight percent recovery rate especially for people under the age of sixty five. We don't talk about that. We just talk about the cases as his spreads. It varies very real possibility that view have kids end in the university systems here in Arizona and across the country. And you thought that you were freed up a little bit now. They may be returning home. That's funny because at the same time. You have college sports like The big ten football season got cancelled. Now, all of a sudden we're hearing rumors then it may come back as early as October why? Because the amount of money that's being looted, the the people are losing. These universities are losing the impact that is having on the economy especially in towns that thrived because of of the university sports. So. We're getting rumblings back and forth. See this going to work. I don't see how parents will be with stand for this but I've been very wrong about this in the past. All I know is paying full tuition. Only. To to be online, I don't think that that's sustainable. We're going to talk to some Asu professors are they're calling on governor Ducey to issue an executive order to open the schools that's at eight o three your chance to win a thousand dollars is coming up next. Should Governor Ducey Stein an executive order sitting the kids back to school. Ways a gentlemen, children all ages. To. Serve at. Certain A. Very interesting op ED was hit by a couple of professors over at Asu. And they're saying that the damage that's been done to our kids I mean is is beyond the Pale and it is time for some serious leadership to come into play when when it comes to getting our kids back in school. Professor Donald Siegel is is foundation professor of public policy and management and the director of the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State. University and Dr Siegel Welcome to the conservative circus you and Dr David Waldman panned op piece for the guy calling on governor Ducey to issue an executive order and open up the schools. Now, in that piece you write the time has come to end the ongoing abuse of children. Can you explain that for my audience? Well our kids have not been able to attend school since. March. So they've been deprived of in person learning and ancillary services that are critical to their development. Also at the same time, of course, public libraries and museums. Other venues that they go to are closed. So these closures have been ex extremely hard especially on two groups of children those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. So poor children who often live in cramped conditions in blighted neighborhoods They are also victims of the digital divide because not everybody has high speed Internet Internet not everybody has their own laptop to work with. And then you have autistic and special needs children who really have been abused because they desperately need social interaction. In fact, social interaction is a part of their therapy. Right. So they've been prevented from seeing their teachers, their colleagues and all kinds of problems have emerged and even the CDC acknowledges us that we're seeing increases in suicide social isolation, undetected abuse, and of course, the late learning. So we are I, I hate to say it the state run religion that we have is abusing our children especially, and you know this is perverse. This is deviant because normally we don't ask the very young to sacrifice for the very old that that's unusual. It's never been done before basically. And now, we're asking them to make sacrifices when they're at limited risk. and this is clearly detrimental to them developmentally in many many ways it's also. Driving. Parents crazy because they have a new job now apparently. Important. For the Governor to get the kids back in school in person not online. You have said a lot there and you said in a way where I really you know we know these things but we don't really sit down and think about especially if we're not walking in these shoes when you're talking about the digital divide and you're talking about a kid who come from a lower economic background and then you talk about the special needs. Yeah. We could think about that for a moment or two, but you're talking about. The caregivers the parents who are dealing with this in a new way that who get absolutely no relief whatsoever and they you also talked to you just said the government run you said in terms of religion you're right if we at private Christian schools are private institutions doing this to kids during normal times, they would be held to account because this government they're not. So let me ask you this. In this article, this op Ed, you take on unions and their allies in the media. Are you suggesting that this is all political? I think there's definitely a political aspect to it, which began when we established the state run religion in March there was an evil triumvirate here you have a triumvirate of evil Y- starts with the media which has been hyping this this panic porn which goes on to this day. Hysteria about the virus. Then you have these infectious disease experts these supercilious myopic single variable focused monsters frankly. Who are responsible for the single greatest government failure of all time telling us how to live our lives and guiding our lives. These infectious disease experts have more power than the politicians they run our lives because they lot this down, and now they're guiding are reopening, and then of course, you have a politicians who've Lee you know who taking advantage of this. you know to to be on a Kratz. You know normally I wouldn't support executive orders but where's the legislature? Apparently the legislature has no power to deal with this. and so it's up to the governor. The governor's going to issue executive orders to lock everybody down. And you know why not if you? Do something positive. Back to normal and I tell you I sure there is no way that the infectious disease experts are gonNA let us get back to normal. Like the Olympics for them. This is like asking Carl Lewis? Cancel the Olympics. What you just said is something I have been saying for weeks now they're not going to stop this. We have professor Donald Siegel. He is foundation professor at a public policy and management and the director of the School of public. Affairs. At the Asu one more question for you in your estimation how much harm has this house arrest of kids cost us how long but we will we feel the reputations of this. It's a disaster we were behind other nations before this, and by the way, other nations very quickly got many of their kids back to school even the countries that had severe lockdowns even more severe than ours they got the kids back in school because we have to do. This is our future here and we are asking the very young to sacrifice for the very old, and that's what this is all about. Let's be honest about it and and that is deviant that is destructive. That is a terrible for kids that's destroying their childhood. This is something that is explosive. You need to you need to read this This is all up that appears in Arizona Daily Independent Governor Ducey issue an executive order to open our schools. The professors here are arguing of that our kids are being damaging the weight of their phrases is. The right. We're asking the kids to sacrifice for the road and that is upside down. That is backwards. It's a matter of fact, the professor says, the debt is deviant. He's right. How do you argue with this? In those kids who do get to return to school telling we're telling kids for five six years old to wear masks. As if they're emotionally mature enough to do that. What we're experiencing here is crazy. and. The fact that other. Civilizations have been able to recover that they had their kids back in school. and. We haven't does speak volumes. You. Know while this derangement that we're experiencing it I do believe is coming from the left side of the aisle. and has reached a whole new level. How is America still falling for this, we're going to talk about that at eight eighteen. you. You're listening to the conservative circus. I Eh ringmaster AFC Harris. We've just heard from. A professor. Professor Donald Siegel Dr Siegel who has an op-ed in the in the Arizona Daily Independent is calling on governor Ducey to issue an executive order to open our schools I want to encourage you to read this. It has been a very long time since I pulled out a piece of paper started taking notes from what a guest was say. Show, but he was throwing down some incredible incredibly insightful observations. Things that we already now. But, but he put it in a way where it really gets down to just the the gravity of what we are doing to the future generation. He talked about the fact that we have kids who are poor kids who have special needs and they're locked into their homes and they probably don't have Internet access to have and the have nots the digital divide, the talked-about state run religion that took over in March. Talked about the media panic porn. Talked about how we have these infectious disease experts who are telling us how to live our lives that is so true. How were sacrificing our young for our generation? He said that that is deviant. Will you look around our society? That is exactly. Exactly on point things are just not right. We are not living. Our lives the way we used to end this all over overblown. There is no pandemic that is killing thousands of people. Hundreds of thousands of people is just not there the numbers don't support it a get the lockdown continues in various forums around this country. It's amazing. His very university is talking about is rumored going to send students home because of Covy, it's not killing their students. Is that even incapacitating to what are we doing? Almost that kicked out of another story yesterday Ross. The mask mandate. I can't bring myself to do it. Doesn't make sense. You must do it for others. No actually no. I know because it's not doing it for others is compliance. See. That's just me personally now magnify that across our society. And you know you absolutely know. That this is a fraud when you had the most powerful politician in the world over flaunting. These mask regulations and these lockdowns. Can go get her hair done. She's that wearing a mask. The beauticians are wearing a mask. She can. Only flaunt this, and then when she gets Hawk she can say I was framed she can blame the beautician. She could blame the small business owner who who's career a WHO's business has been destroyed. Because of the shutdown and then you wanNA talk about perverse wants she talks about the hypocrisy. She's the one that gets attack. She's the one that gets debt threats. The radical left gets online and destroys business. With negative reviews. To the point where even if they do reopen, she can't really open because a reputation has been damaged professor. Siegel, was right. How do we ever get out of this? They don't ever plan to let us get Outta this. Why would they? They're enjoying the power? Power tends to corrupt. And absolute power tends to corrupt. Absolutely. That's were. That's what we're living right now. The. Democrats. have taken this to a whole `nother level. This derangement. Trump derangement syndrome. has is in a position. Where all of the institution of education especially I mean the younger you go. The worse it is. The same people who talked about truck drivers and and the people who stock our our shelves in stores, how they were heroes doing pandemic are trying to give teachers pass the teachers. Even. If even at this worst situation where you are sacrificing. To. Be Able to educate too young. Well you know what? That's the won't you. You're caught on for the betterment of the society to sacrifice Mona I'm not going to do I'm not my life in danger but that's just be that is you're being selfish would if you're being political Our Union tells us we can't go in. So we'RE NOT GONNA. Go Win why because we WANNA hurt the president we want to damage the president of the United States. Things are so bad in New, York City that people are up and leaving they're leaving. The political leadership of that state and that city. has called the New York City who had been it had been cleaned up had been a a vacation tourist destination. Thriving. So we thought. Bubbling underneath was a corruption. Underneath is a poor infrastructure and look what happened Bill de Blasio are falling apart. He's saying you know what you're dull believe your lying eyes so What we're really talking about is a small number of people. I can't give you the exact number. But. A small number of people who are choosing four now. To go someplace else now, there was an article, the other day the talked about people leaving, and then compared to the number of people coming in, and there's still a lot of people coming into. So we we just got to stop this. Painting of a picture let's not true. The vast vast majority of New Yorkers are standing and fighting they are loyal to this city. They're going to stay here. No matter what denial. Is Not, just a river in Egypt. To Dr Kelli, Ward at eight, thirty, three, the get our as GOP update. Not, many hosts have the president's private number. Sean Hannity does catch him this afternoon from one until four on five, fifty KFI and on FM at ninety five point five, hd two. You're listening to the conservative circus. I am. Your ring, massive James t hairs. The mob violence that is just popping out all over the country is now turning back on the Democrats. You have the the mayor of Portland Todd Wheeler has been a little Wussy. Ted. We loved her dot top TATT. He's been a little. We'll see man from the very very beginning but now even he is being run out check this out a mere Portland Oregon says he is planning to move after violent protests outside his apartment building according to lower. Mayor Ted Wheeler sent an email to his neighbor saying it would be best for everyone's safety if he were to find a new place live. In his senior one, hundred days of protests since the police killing A. George Floyd in Minneapolis. Wow He's GONNA move. Yeah they win to where his apartment building they said the lobby they were protesting. It'd be best for everybody everybody's safety. If. If. I move what beef be the mayor being forced to move Senate cracking down on all this C-. He thought that by letting this fester, it was going to make president trump. Pat Now. He looks like the address at. Here's Senator Chris Murphy Democrat. Connecticut on the mob violence during the Obama and Biden years. Violent crime in this country went down by fifteen percent and We've seen that big spike in murders in American cities of this year under trump's watch listen. We didn't say get to the root causes of the violence You Know My book certainly talks about the things you can do to make sure they're less illegal weapons out there but. You really deal with the racist past and present raised the way in which white majority's used all islands to suppress communities of color. The way the poverty leads to violence I'm you're not going to make a difference here. So if you WANNA law and order president elect somebody who's going to be all about racial healing elect somebody who's GonNa lift people out of poverty that's Joe Biden. Wow. You WanNA law and order president deal with the root causes of violence, and that's what our candidate a Democratic candidates talking about very interesting. Very interesting. Indeed here we have Chris Murphy saying you know what I'm GONNA blame white communities for the use of violence all the violence from over the years. Is Because of white folks? Well, I'll tell you what? We saw this violence by white folks against other white folks primarily a few Americas Africa sent last week as the Republican convention was a convening. And out there amongst all the craziness was a Dr Kelli Ward we welcome her to the center ring of the conservative circuits and you gotta tell us about the model that you face in DC, firsthand Dr Ward. JC It is great to be with you. I can tell you I was very, very happy when we touched down in Phoenix came out into the airport. It's guy. Harbor had one of the employees come up and say because we had our trump Maga- year on Arizona loves president trump eighty, five percent of the people that work in this airport are. Voting for president trump because in Washington it wasn't quite that way It was a blessing. My Gosh where my husband and I to be able to attend the event at the White House last Thursday evening so much love of America. So much patriotism on full display right there. But as we left the secret service routed us out the seventeen. Freak. date rather than fifteen because on Fifteenth Street, they had a GEO team set up the. Matter. ANTIFA people basically pretending to cut off the head of president trump that was pretty sick and pretty scary. So they routed I felt the other side and everyone got a got. A little bit of shaming shame shame shame. A lot of cursing. They did tell us we deserved the Guillotine and for me as a as I was the only female walking in the group of people that I, was with I got a lot of sexually tinged assault like terms thrown my way. So if people want to read it, you can read the whole encounter on my facebook page at Kelli Ward as E. and also see. Some links of the craziness that was happening there you know you describe it as you describe it, it really does make my head hurt. My is cross that people can be just this inhumane towards other people and we're talking about is you know the left the radical left trying to intimidate conservative Republicans who are at the event. The same thing did not happen to Joe Biden in this people primarily because they didn't really have a rally. Just. Called but he but you get my point I mean we really add a divide here where the let has is willing to to really give into violence in order to get their way. Yes and and I will tell you 'cause there wasn't really big contrast there because the next day the event at the White House on Thursday Friday what the march on Washington, that was a lot of African American people coming to I. Celebrate the anniversary of Martin Luther King Junior's speech on the mall on August twenty eighth years and years ago where he did talk about he wants his children to be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin and there were lots of Nice people in that crowd I will tell you compared to the women's March after your inauguration. People were pussycats compared to those nasty women but I will tell you to We had trump here red white and blue American flag facemasks where they were required and people who had work no shyness whatsoever about coming up and telling us that basically we should rip those things off our face. We should not be wearing trump gear that you know and cursing at US whereas they had lots of black lives matter go Joe Biden verify finale Ya and showing their colors. We would never have thought to walk up to them and say how dare you wear that you need to take that off then the contrast is very, very clear. I think for people in Arizona as well as across the country. If you want freedom, you want liberty you want America, you're GonNa vote Republican if you want Tierney you want a carrion ism and you want a complete and total lack of respect for law and order as well as no safety that's when you vote Democrat. That is exactly what we were up against. In in November you're absolutely correct I'm glad to router the pictures were absolutely fabulous. This is Dr Kelli Ward. Eight Z GOP chairperson and I do believe that that reception should be at the airport was real and authentic as more people are starting to make up their minds of which way that are going ahead in November i WanNa talk to you about never trumpers. The never trumpers last stand is among us. We'll do that at eight, forty eight. Deal O'Reilly is here this morning at nine fifty on five fifty K. of lie on FM Ninety Five, point five, hd two. Listening, to the conservative circus. I am your bring massive James to Harris. C. And read. Zona. Very interesting opposed McCain's boundless hatred. Reaches beyond the grave were talking about Senator John McCain. A group calling itself. McCain alums for Joe Biden. Stands as a stark reminder why John McCain was so reviled within the Party under under whose banner he opportunities took up you know to he used the opportunity. Joe's Iran. I. Don't know I had a biden moment there didn't they? Had Joe Biden moment I'll admit. You've got the the Lincoln Republicans. Have you got this new group year. McCain alums for Joe Biden. I mean still from the grave. From the grave. You have Joe Biting reaching out to try to to try to destroy president trump. Hell. You could see John McCain. Of course, we can't drive to be president twice. He failed. He tried to be president under the the Republican banner. And he failed you see. Donald trump came in as a republican living light pretty much as in as a New Yorker as a New York liberal. He comes in under the Republican Banner First Time running for office and he wins. Amazing. Yeah Yeah. That's John McCain from the grave. Well. We have another. never-trumper. WHO's backing the news talking about? Jeff Flake. Jeff. Flake. Jeff Flake is saying that Joe Biden is more conservative than trump on core issues. Former GOP Senator Jeff Flake detailed his reasoning for throwing his support for for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden saying that the former vice president upholds. Traditional institutions. Conservatives believe in preserving institutions to to preserve what we know works and the institutions of American democracy our freedom of the press. For example, a separation of powers an independent judiciary. Do I sound like flake the? My good non sort of. Wasn't a good flake. Okay. was might flake better than my L. Sharpton. Yes. Thank you. Yeah. Judas. Jeff Flake the president has shown that he has little understanding he understands or little appreciates these institutions. Now. Right, so because European. The president doesn't really hold to these institutions you're going to vote for Joe Biden? Joe. Biden, who believes in abortion Joe Biden who believes in in high taxation Joe Biden who believes in the green new deal Joe Biden. Shovel ready jobs. Joe Biden Celinda. I'm not pretending Joe Biden is as conservative as I am fiscal issues and whatnot, but but on these important issues of American democracy. Frankly he's more conservative than the president is says Jeff Flake? The American. Democracy. Well. First of all, we live in. Republic? We do. And I Jeff Flake is part of the the Republican establishment wing of the Republican Party that has been displaced. I got a note from a good friend WHO's a never-trumper. Sending me a New York Times article pleading with me to read it the case to be a never-trumper I did read it. And I just found myself disagreeing with it. Totally will if you vote for president trump that's going to destroy the Republican Party. Republican Party becomes the Party of trump. And my response was in the problem with that is. I will continue to remind you. That we conservatives. That everything, the establishment asked us to do. We. Dave the power to John Bainer to push back against. The Obama Agenda Diddy. No he did not. Be gave that to Paul Ryan. Did he push back against the Obama agenda. No actually did he tried to advance the trump agenda? No. He did not. We sat back. Endured accepted all the excuses, John McCain told us pat you pass. We can build a wall built that Dang fence remember that. Over going repel repeal obamacare remember that the thumbs down in the middle of the night now. And that is why The establishment lost we the people that is why we voted for. Donald Trump. So if he remakes the department is image will good on them and good on the party because it was failing under the establishment. Nancy Pelosi's in big trouble. We're GONNA talk about that at nine. Nancy Pelosi is taking heat. And it's not my hair dryer. Ladies and gentlemen children of all, ages. To kind of serve. His St. Pelosi. She is in she's a little bit of hot water. Is because instead of just owning up to the fact that she's privileged. The she played on her privilege. A she doubled down. She doubled down against. The hair, Salon I'm talking about the controversy of a Nancy Pelosi? To a hair salon to get her hair done and San Francisco when all of the salons are still on lockdown. Yes. California is one of the most her county states when it comes to the lockdown. We're don't don't don't laugh because we're up in there too. But Nancy Pelosi, she pulled a Lori lightfoot in Chicago. The same thing was going on early in the pandemic lawry life where she went to a salon she got her here did and then when asked about her, she says she represented Chicago. So she has to look good you know screw everybody else. Nancy Pelosi, she went a different direction. Nancy Pelosi she said that she trusted the hair folks she takes full responsibility, but you know to end of the day is not her fault. Now, I've been there many over the years. I've been there many times I. Appreciate appreciate the question, and let me just say this I take responsibility for trusting other word the neighborhood. So long that I've been to over the years many times and that when they said what we're able to accommodate people one person at a time. And that we can set up that time I trusted that. Turns out it was a set up. So I take months ability for falling for a setup and that's all I'm going to say on that. It was a setup I take full responsibility for falling four setup. And that's all going to say about that Nancy Pelosi I take full responsibility, but I was set up. I take full responsibility but it's not my fault really is that what she said Yeah, and this she double down further I don't I think that they'll that this Solano's me an apology for setting up but I will say this in fairness to him and then sympathetic to him we have to get our country moving again and I will not let this subject take away from the fact that we have one, hundred, eighty thousand plus people who have died from this virus. Since. We pass the bill more than half of those people have died since we've passed legislation you what are you talking about? were, where did you just take us there? You you demand an apology from the Salon people have died. You know we're to get back to, you'll have to get back to work. I've apologized I've taken responsibility for for being setup. I, demand apology from the hair salon. Now, we we have to get back to work. Well, the salon owner was on with Tucker Carlson last night. And he asked her point blank was this a setup? Nancy Pelosi claims on camera the orchestrated a quote setup to entrap her into getting your hair blown out without a mask. Did you. Now, absolutely not how would you have done that I mean can you prove that this wasn't a diabolical setup designed to bring down the speaker of the house by blow drying her hair I she had called the Stylus in or her assistant made the appointment so The appointment was already booked. So there's no way could have set that up and I've had a camera system in there for five years I mean I didn't go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked then set her up. So that's absolutely false. Absolutely false with isn't that incredible of that. Of. That Nancy, Pelosi chose to say you know I was set up Nancy Pelosi out of all of the choices she made. Out of all of the Democrat examples of who you know individuals who got caught in trouble and excuses they may. She went with the Burien Marion Berry excuse she with Marion Berry that that hairstylist framed me. make sure. Sure sure. She would. The would the set up? Of course Oh Berry was. Called on smoking crack with with the garden tool. And he said, she sent me up that edge. That's what that's what. Nancy Pelosi will say. Well, how come she didn't go with you know this is nothing more than a vast right wing salon conspiracy. She could want that way a vast right wing salon. Conspiracy. Or she could could've said, no, it depends on what the the meaning of haircut is. No? Did Not have a shampoo with that beautician that one. You didn't see the shampoo. I did not wag the finger I did not have a Chiampou. Beautician she didn't go into that one she went with them but the Berry one. Crazy and what's real crazy as she's walking around with no mask on the Mask on what does that tell you? I mean, she's in the category nets blows his eighty years old. She's prime for the covert. She had no fear. See. I think all of this stuff is pointed to something more sinister, and that is our politicians are not afraid of it because they've already done what's necessary to not get it. Hydroxy. Chloroquine a little zinc. She's walking around freesheet. Coulda, had that done in her house she chose to go out to the salon. What are we talking about here? There is a controversy brewing over Asu. We a lot of stories come out of the issue today. This has to do with their radio. This is this is Ross's Alma Mater that radio station we're GonNa talk about that as a starting to the controversy has gone national. And that is up next. You are listening the conservative circuits. I am your ringmaster James Harris. If you listen to Russell Hunter the afternoon you'll know all about the story and they asked you stood a radio station halts programming admit uproar over a managers, Jacob Blake tweet. Of this story is GonNa National You got blades radio at asu hosted a Zuma meeting Tuesday evening to discuss the status of Ray Klein as station manager. What does she do? She put on the tweet and she was just suggesting that folks look at Jacob Blake's arrest record. I mean. If you do it is quite chilly. She's saying you know there's there's there's the just need to people need to be well informed. And they you had the board over there. They wanted her gone. They don't have the power to alter the one her to Ulster herself. Said our intentions are clear is either Rayleigh or us. We want her gone. She's as we go. We stay. She goes. Clients that I am I am more than willing to do what I can do as a one man band. There are people willing to step it up. Into your positions as they would be mine, she says she's not going anywhere. The board voted to remove her, but they don't have that power. That power lies elsewhere. Now Kline did appear on a Russell Hunter. And I. and she was very very impressive understands. She's he's she's about real true journalism. This thing is is really is in the spotlight now because you know what is going on with the first, amendment what is going on with free speech? And Representative Bob Thorpe has stepped into the fray. He's calling on Asu President Michael Crow to step down if he refuses to intervene on behalf of Rayleigh Klein. And Representative Thorpe is in the censoring of the conservative circus representative top you add some tough words for President Michael Crow you're calling on him to step down what kind of reaction have you gotten thus far from your from your statements. Maury James T you know it's It's interesting. I heard about this from the one of my favorite radio host. Jane Stay Heresy yesterday morning heard about this issue, and so I started researching it found a article in the hill out of Washington DC and I'm very concerned when something embarrassing happens here in Arizona but then makes national news especially when you're talking about constitutional rights. So I haven't contacted by the president's office yesterday it took almost eight hours to get back to me, and then I get an email for vice president over the as you. I replied to him that I'm extremely troubled by social media giants suppressing conservative speech across our nation. Even that of president trump the same sort of first amendment free speech and free and press oppression should never happen at our state funded universities especially within a red western state. So you know Should rightly be fired or should the board be fired? I I tend to lean towards the board. I would tend to lean towards the board as well. Whatever happened to freedom of expression free speech. What she said was not a racist. What she said wasn't even controversial in my is we should know the complete story and we've seen increased attacks on conservatives, but the attacks on conservative students on our campuses is alarming and I think that's partly what you are. Re Year responding to given that our universities are supposed to be a diverse and. Of Thought, did you hear anything? Do you expect to hear anything more from a issues leadership? President Krone. I. Normally on Fridays, Go out and pick out curtains at the local target. Right, no, I don't expect to hear any. Well, I, hear back from some of them you know I copied salmon or or former congressman former commerce hunterston on my email this morning, and so who knows whether hear back from them or not I don't blame You know President Crow on this however, he is president of the university He needs to step up and try to correct this and make sure that in the future our students you know I in my press release, I talked about that their first amendment constitutional, rights need to be upheld. Weather you know the yeah, their race, their gender, their political affiliation doesn't really matter our. You Know First Amendment free speech rights are trying our constitution they need to be upheld. Representative Bob Thorpe I WANNA. Thank you very for weighing in on this and Yeah Yo? The campuses supposed to be. The institution in which we can discuss these things back and forth will we don't have to be worried about this? Even back in the day though in nineteen or should I say the nineteen eighties when that was on college campuses? Now, my college campus experience spanned two decades just like you know. It was it Yemen. E It was liberal. But it was not as intolerant as things are right now. And I think that is what has so many people alarmed this this individual over here is not did not do anything wrong whatsoever and yet she's being held to the walk standards. She's being held to the standards of the radical left were. There can be absolutely no dissent especially if you're talking about someone that the radical left cherish and that is criminals. Criminals. The have more on this and on the left's march to try to to win. Back the presidency we'll do that coming up next. Russia's still best listened today at ten on five fifty. KFI AND ON FM at ninety five point five, hd two. You're listening to the conservative circus. ringmaster. Jamesy hairs. The Democrats tripping over themselves on television. You know they keep elevating people who don't deserve to be in a position now based on my standards based on their own standards. You've got to let these have fallen by the wayside in a lot of us have forgotten about Kris bad news because it a culvert he got dismissed right before things hit. For, saying wildly inaccurate and hateful things. He was replaced with Joy Reid. Joy Reid Joy Reid. She has a salty passes well when it comes to same things on the air that were that were homophobic. tweeted them out. She should have been summarily dismissed, but she was not. The. kind of glossed over because they needed her why? Because she's an American of African descent. She says hateful things on MSNBC. We need her in place at least until. After the elections. Well Joy Reid has stepped into it. She stepped into it a few days ago. She made an analogy. That was trying to Kinda maybe prick the conscious of conservatives. They went just a bit too far. You know when when leaders Let's say in the Muslim world talk a lot of violent talk and encouraged their supporters to be willing to commit violence wouldn't on their own bodies in order to win against whoever they decide is the enemy we in the US media described that as they are radicalizing those people particularly when their radicalising young people. That's how we talk about the way Muslims Act when you see what Donald Trump is doing is that any different from what we describe as radicalizing people? Out She could have chosen A. Different example. She could've talked about you know liberals. And how they'd radicalize people. You know when you have young people who are been locked up for days are for months and they're disassociated with things and then we come on and we talk about hate hate hated hated we maxine waters says get into your face and then we run falsehoods and live we just fill them up of propaganda we end up programming them. She could used that example. But she didn't. She went the way of. Islam she talked about Muslims. Who are radicalizing their supporters she was talking about the things that Isis does. You know and radicalizing other supporters people get online and they find all this hateful stuff than it. Decide I want to be part of Isis I want to be, and then they just go join. She couldn't use the example of ANTIFA. But she didn't. Play for me again, Rossa. Trump how how does joy say from about radicalizing his supporters? You know when they when leaders? Let's say in the Muslim world talk a lot of violent talk and encouraged their supporters to be willing to commit violence wouldn't on their own bodies in order to win against whoever they decide is the enemy we in the US media described that as they are radicalizing those people particularly in their radicalising young people. That's how we talk about the way Muslims Act. When you see what Donald Trump is doing, is that any different? From. What we describe as radicalizing people, there were two individuals in Congress who took umbrage with the joy Reid said. Ilhan Omar. and. Rashida to leave. Oh. Yeah. They didn't like that they said Joy Reid should apologize for her Islamophobic comments, islam-phobic comments old they are we are we having fun yet? This is fantastic. Joy Reid you I'm sorry she stepped into it because, of course, Ilhan in an to leave their Bova. Muslim women. And they're called on her to to cease and desist. A with the with the racist. Comments. In the Muslim world really. So yesterday. Joy Reid. took to the microphones. To Apologize, we have never had a president do that. And he's getting help from his party and his media outlets literally celebrating vigilantism and turning it alleged killer into bear version of a hero. Is Trump was a Muslim leader not the leader of the Christian right. How would we in the media describe what he's doing? I asked that question on Monday and it was a lot of conversation particularly online after the segment air some of which was frankly not in good faith. But some of the. Reflected the genuine feelings of people who have been subjected to the kind of stereotyping that I just described. who take matters like this to heart because of it And we should all be sensitive to that and I certainly should have been sensitive to that but you weren't. You. Were not sensitive to it. So you you apologize for that apology I'm sure she will be accepted because MSNBC they need her. They need her president trump is a absurd saying. Joe. Biden is having a big fat problem right now not just with the polls, but whether it's website. Still driving the left nuts that's why we love rush this morning at ten on five fifty K. of why and on. FM At ninety five, twenty, five, hd two. Conservative Circus I. Am your ringmaster James to hear so happy you hung out in the center ring this morning. A we love Info tainting you. We're going to talk about on tomorrow's show Joe? Biden's visit to Canossa today. Yeah, and I suspect that my good friends Russell Hunter will be talking about this as well. I'll be on with them at five thirty this afternoon for our our daily Confab. But Joe Biden. Joe Biden is making a lot of people concerned. And yesterday he was on the stage and was asked a question. He was asked the question a real reporter because see they have them up there. He gives you the candidate speech of the gives you the can't talking points and then it was a little twist yesterday of the Biden team selected a few. So call reporters to ask him can deflect questions then is supposed to exit stage right but he didn't do that he lingered around just a moment just a moment too long got asked a serious question. A by a Fox reporter named Peter Doocy. Thank you also very much retain thankfully. I know you always ask for hostile question the go ahead. Through Warm You said that you warned president trump in January that there was going to be pandemic and what needed to be done. You knew that then why we've still Crowded campaign rallies in March Oh. What a great question. Joe Biden has been lying about this for months saying that he instructed he advised president trump in January he warned him about the Wuhan Virus. But but there he wasn't June holding these big these events big for Biden. So if you did that asks DC the then why why were you meeting in March and here's the problem see people don't ask they don't have the opportunity to ask Biden. Real questions. There's a reason why the Biden campaign is doing this. Joe Biden attempted to answer Ducey's question and went horribly horribly wrong. Now. What I talked about was. Not What had to be done when I said, you gotTa take this seriously. You've got to insist that we have access to Wuhan. insisted, we have access in China to find out for ourselves. We had forty four people from CDC there. You cannot continue to talk about. The president of China saying he's done a marvelous job. He's doing a great a great job when it got up to March I kept saying look you've got your invoke you remember I think I was I. I may be mistaken person calling about the Defense Production Act we don't have enough of that I I. It's amazing use a phrase like p and the public knows what that is now but protective equipment gear ventilators wait. A second hold us. Ross did he answer the question yet? That's a firm negative that he did not. He did not Joe Biden usually to go out there now and don't wait. And don't wait to talk about the need for us to have masks. Don't wait to talk about. That's when I when I talked about. Then I began to lay out for him he we actually had a conversation. This is terrible. I can't remember when it was I think it was march she just kept. And I said he said Biden wants to help I wanNA talk to my. mind. Just just spilling all over the place spilling. The mind was just spilling spilling into my where I thought should be done to be able to reopen safely and the things we should do. And he was very polite. He listen going to think about it and that was the end of it. Here's the reality in March. Here's what Joe Biden was saying about the virus and how president trump was managing it. Virus. From China. A national emergency worldwide alerts. The American people need to have a president who they can trust what he says about it. That he is going to act rationally about it. Almost like this, this is where the credibly a president is most needed. As he explains what we should and should not do. This is no time for Donald Trump's record of hysteria xenophobia via. Xenophobia say. Accusing the president with shutdown. China. Travel of being Zena Phob he's got caught in another lie but he instead of just correcting he's capable you just rambled on this is a problem for the left and they will continue to lie and try to hide Joe Biden.

The Conservative Circus w/ James T. Harris

Sam Stone on the Phoenix response to the riots plus Gov. Ducey placing a curfew for one week and the impact that choice will have.

"Governor. ducey put out a curfew last night, saying that after eight o'clock a united basically allowed to be on the streets and given what happened in some of the communities are a lot of people. They kind of agree with that but alas. The protesters did not agree with it because they shirked the. The the curfew they're out and about they bag downtown downtown Phoenix last night. Reading little bit of problems in center ring, other conservative circus. We have SAM stone. He is the chief of staff for City Councilman Sal to Cisco and Sam. Last night we heard that if started out fairly peaceful, and then it kind of turned in the end. Is that true? Absolutely a mess. The history of these things James at least the last few days we've had you know hours very peaceful. Protesting which I certainly had a ton of respect for, and then it's gone to hell and. Thank goodness for the Phoenix Police Department and the effort they did especially last night they stepped up in a big way. We had over two hundred and fifty. I think arrests the last two nights in downtown. They are taking these folks off the streets, and if you were out there. If you were saw any, you here uber driver someone still out last night. What you saw was the entire three thousand persons Phoenix police department on the streets in every single neighborhood, every commercial center and you wake up today to a city. That's still looks normal because of our police department contract. That's what's going on around this country. This is the right way to do. Things Jerry Williams police chief in Phoenix. Deserve a ton ton of credit. You don't stone. Stone I agree with you. She does deserve a ton of credit and she needs to hear from the community. Because strangely, I haven't heard too much for mayor Gago on on this whole issue, and this is a liberal round city, but for some reason we were blessed to have achieved Williams. Who really doesn't play and they're so professional in the pushback it it's it's it is gratifying to see my question is what will these people who are in jail be charged with will be. Will they be held responsible for the chaos? They've caused. That's the big question that still yet to be answered James Because the first night of these protests. We arrested just two people. And on some pretty significant charges, one of those in fact had a bunch of wars, and they got down to the jail, and the administrator just turned around and let him right out. and. A chance that we rearrested those same. People are pretty darn high. so we're waiting to see one of the things about the governor's order and I I have my questions about a week on lockdown, but one of the things about it is that it ups potential penalty you can face a fine of up to twenty five hundred dollars and six months in jail. You know we need to be parents simple if you're out there, looting rioting, if your lighting fires and causing damage and doing the things we've been seeing. We need to throw the book at. You need to go to jail. Can they stay there for a long time might question is how could it be? Why were they just released? Allow to sign out I mean what good does it do? If you go into arrest, two hundred people for looting for for violence, and then they're not going to be punished. You're not going to hold them accountable. That's that's that's crazy. I'm not putting that on. Chief Williams or do I need to WHO's responsible. Who made that call? No chance you definitely don't need to be putting. Matt Chief Williams. Putting out on the politicians at City Hall and the majority, the liberal majority, and it's what we've seen across this entire country for over a decade. Now they look on the. There's a liberal brand that looks on and TEPA, and cheer them on and has been doing it for a decade, and now's the real truth. The real face of MT is out in front of every American. They're trying to deflect the blame. What they have done for years is treat this group, which is a domestic terrorist group like they are legitimate protest group, and it is not. It needs to be treated differently there. There are people out there who are very legitimately protesting George Floyd and issues around policing in minority communities, and Tika is here to commit violence and throw this little boy, revolution of all these little white boys sitting in their basement, dreaming on the radical revolutionary. It really is a frightening thing to see, and you see how they tried to coop the movement and we're GONNA. Talk about that later on today's show, but but stamps. Are we talking to Sam Stone? He is the chief of staff for city councilman. There are at least two members of the city council who have been particularly unhelpful and our egging on as you just said are supporting and cheering the actions of these radicals and our streets. Well I, you know I wanna be clear we do. They are in and what they're not doing is differentiating between legitimate protesters and the troublemakers. The ones who are out there to do mischief and criminal damage destroy property threaten live. They're not defining the difference between those two and until they do that. Their protest is legitimate and the end of the story. It's just amazing to me that we elect people like this who are on the inside of the government now and they're helping. Create the chaos, Samson? What kind of effect is this having on the on police officers and also WANNA. Know what impacted this having on small businesses downtown? who were trying to reopen after the covert? The orders were lifted. Well. This is absolutely destroying all these small businesses James I mean they're struggling for all their work to to find a way to survive this thing. And now they're getting hit with these damages, and they can't have their businesses open it absolutely devastating, but the bigger point here that you just hit on, you know we had a from what I understand I'm hearing report that one of the Tucson City Council. Members was actually. With the the the people damaging property in downtown Tucson was actually out with them and we've. We've had council members here in Phoenix who have set out on their office letterhead statement saying Oh Phoenix police. Really reasonable measures are brutality and violence, and this is racism, but knox not done with this garbage, James we're done with it. It is time to take control of our country back. If there is a real problem and there is with policing in this country. Then let's address it meaningfully. You do not do that by lighting fire and causing damage and burning down at hurting people. That is ridiculous.

We start with the saddest story that i have ever heard a story so sad. The first time. I heard it i thought to myself damn somebody oughta write a song about this well. I didn't write a song. But i did write a chapter in my book about the saddest songs i'd ever heard as sung to me by the men of the chorus of the chesapeake. These guys who. I mentioned earlier in the book. Who introduced me. At the tender age of eighteen to a breathtakingly depressing collection of lamentations set to four part harmony. Unlike anything i've ever heard you think tears in heaven by eric clapton is sad. You think He stopped loving her today. By george jones is a tear. Jerker you ain't heard nothing yet. I'm talking about songs so sad. You can't help but laugh even as you cry. After that i chat with chuck about why it is so many of us are drawn to misery set to music and i share with him. The details of a nightmare. I endured earlier this week. A three day nose bleed there was preceded by the surgical correction of a deviated septum. This is a nose bleed that deserves. Its own sad songs since it kept me up pretty much around the clock for three days and nearly drove me. Insane is a very strange conversation that includes the sudden swelling of my fathers scrotum and my mother's reaction to it which incidentally ought to be set to music as well. I call this episode.

Subject to change without notice visit livestream dot com slash row for more information chapter twenty five his last letter home. The postman snap the rubber band off. The envelopes and slid another stack of mail through the slot in the front door in grid heard the squeal of the tiny hinge the chirp of tin tin and the soft whoosh of a new stack of mail landing on an old stack of mail. Those were the sounds that she tried to ignore. The sounds that ushered in a new day of grief. Hungry mommy hungry now. That was the sound she couldn't ignore in the kitchen. Ingrid spread peanut butter on toast for her two year. Old son as the telephone jangled in its cradle. Hello she whispered yes this is she yes. He would have been thirty one in january. You're welcome ingrid left. Aj to his peanut butter toast and wondered back to the front door with a bear. To- she pushed aside the catalogs and bills and regarded the dozens of sympathy cards. A literal pile of pity. She couldn't bring herself to read but they're buried and the condolences ingrid saw the unmistakable handwriting his handwriting postmark that read september twenty third nineteen seventy three. It was a letter from her husband a letter from beyond the grave for jackson south carolina. September nineteen sixty. Six ingrid's husband is just another private waiting in line to make a phone call home. thanks to what. The army called his issues with authority. This particular private has managed to fail basic training and that means another six weeks away from his new bride ingrid will not be happy as he waits his. Turn to deliver the bad news. The young private does what he always. Does he studies the people around him and makes up stories to pass the time that guy with the soggy shoes and the hangdog expression for instance. Maybe he's just come back from the car wash pool where he's been ordered to clean a fleet of muddy gps and the guy with the arm tattoos that read. Hey and baby may be his new father that committee ladies man who wishes to proclaim in indelible ink his unshakeable belief that women come and go but tattoos are forever. The private smiles to himself. Ingrid will love that. One truth was ingrid found all of his stories delightful but she never thought they would make her rich and she never imagined they would make her a widow. All the same six years had gone by a now here. She was her grief temporarily suspended by the shock of seeing a message from the husband she had buried five days earlier with trembling hands. She opened the envelope removed the pages and began to read her husband's last words the very words she hoped and prayed he would one day say moments later awash in unspeakable grief ingrid tried to place a long distance. Call to her mother. But when the operator heard ingrid's last name she hesitated. I hate to ask but are you any relation ingrid sobbed. Yes he was my husband. Oh honey i'm so sorry all the girls down here. We just loved him. You know that right. We were his biggest fans. Ingrid saab some more. I know she said he loved all of you to back in line. Ingrid's husband turns his attention to the soldier immediately in front of him. The red rimmed eyes the hunched up shoulders. The balled up fist gently tapping against the fresh crewcut. He's on the wrong end of a dear. John call no doubt about it. Ingrid's husband imagines the girl on the other end a deceitful girl. A girl who was cheated on the soldier with best friend. The call ends the phone slips. From the soldiers hand and dangles in midair. Ingrid's husband is close enough to hear the operator. Say oh honey. I'm so sorry. are you still there. Would you like to place another call blinking back tear. The soldier grips the receiver in pours. His heart out to the operator. Ingrid's husband doesn't eavesdrop. He simply watches the soldiers face and dreams up a little story just to pass the time. Eventually ingrid's husband makes it out of the army and back home briefly. He keeps writing stories. But when aj arrives and money becomes more of a concern. The former private begins telling his tales to anyone who might pay to hear them. Turns out ingrid isn't the only one who likes them. People say they feel so real they say his characters remind them of their own neighbors and so the former private takes his tails on the road and before long the money begins to roll in but being away from his family as painful ingrid misses her husband. Aj misses his dad and the man who used to write stories. Just to pass the time begins to agonize over the days. He can never get back once after an all too brief visit home. He writes the story of a lonesome. Troubadour who yearns to relive his favorite days over and over again people like that one too a lot then just as his career as taking off ingrid's husband does the unthinkable he quits in his last letter home. The young writer promises to start writing different kinds of stories novels and screenplays anything. That doesn't have to be told night after night over and over again. He ends his letter with this. Remember baby it's the first sixty years that count and i've got thirty more to go. I love you later. That same day he drops the letter in the mail and boards a private plane. The crashes moments after leaving the runway five days after that the postman on ingrid's porch delivers the best possible news. At the worst possible time we still remember the characters. Ingrid's husband described the kid and the soggy shoes with the case of the car. Wash blues rapid roy the stockcar boy with one tattoo that said baby and another one that just said hey we still remember the roller derby queen the pool room hustler no one messed with the baddest man and the whole damn town and of course the anonymous telephone operator who's sweet voice called a heartbroken soldier at the lowest point in his life remember these characters not only because they feel real but because the man who brought them to life never made it home because his death catapulted his stories to the top of the charts even as the characters he created insured his own immortality naturally ingrid still has his last letter home. It's captain a box just for wishes and dreams. That will never come true. It is perhaps the ultimate love letter. A promise made from beyond the grave by a homesick troubadour earned to save time in a bottle. A teller of stories singer of songs named jim crow chee late on tuesday nights in the back room at janis. My high school friend chuck and i listened as old men from the course of the chesapeake sang. The saddest songs ever written as always the men were broken down into foursomes harmonizing around the square tables. That held bowls of peanuts and pitchers of draft beer. Things began with danny boy as they always do but then moved onto a song. I'd never heard before little pow and impossibly maudlin tale of a man who must say goodbye to his young son before heading off to prison for a crime. He didn't commit little pal if daddy goes away. Promise you'll be good from day to day. Do his mother says and never sin be the man. Your daddy might have been the men stare into each other's faces as they sang and wept unashamedly good. Kreis chuck said. That's gotta be the saddest song ever sung but chuck was wrong as little pal came to an end. Another toe tapper called old folks began. Everyone knows him as old folks like the seasons. He'll come and he'll go just as free as a bird and as good as his word. That's why everybody loves him. So the song goes on to describe a world where all the old people suddenly dropped dead. It is beyond depressing and very powerful. This song actually made me miss my grandparents which was weird since they were live and well at the time once again the old men wept as they sang but before anyone could mourn the death of old folks another pitch pipe blue and another lamentation began. Are you familiar with the peppy. Tune called the little boy that santa claus forgot. Now neither was i. Christmas comes but once a year for every girl and boy the laughter and the joy they find in each new toy. I'll tell you of a little boy who lives across the way this little fellows christmas his just another day. I'll cut to the chase. The little boy rights to santa asking for a soldier and a drum. He's devastated when he gets neither. In fact the little boy who santa forgot gets nothing at all for christmas zero zilch. Why because his father was killed in the war. You see the lady hasn't got a daddy. Chuck stifled a nervous. Giggle sweet jesus. He said who the hell writes a song like that. I had no answer to give him. But i did notice that many of the older men who'd been listening we're smiling to even as they wept some actually short interesting. There's nothing funny about orphans and death. Shell shock and prison but when old men sing about pain and loss and four part harmony the imagery becomes exponentially more intense so much so that the songs collapse under the weight of their own mawkishness leaving you with little choice but to laugh at the unbearable tragedy of all somewhere across the crowded room. Someone blew another pitch pipe and we were treated to the story of an old man living alone for the first time in his life grieving the loss of his beloved wife at her gravesite. He says dear old girl. The robin sings above you. Dear old it speaks of how i love you. The blinding tears are falling. As i think of my lost pearl and my broken heart is calling calling for you dear. Old girl the quartet of men who sang that song were all widowers but they're they sat weeping and smiling and drinking beer and singing into their grief in the far corner another pitch pipe blue and the room was treated to a jaunty rumination on crib. Death i'm not even kidding. It begins with a father who walks into the nursery many months. After his little girl's death i had opened wide. The shutters of the long deserted room and flood of golden sunshine chased away. The dreary gloom while gazing round with tenderness. Where baby lasted laid. I chance to see her fingerprints upon the window pane how the silent tears were falling fullish tears. I wept in vain but my heart forgot it pains as i kissed away. The stains kissed away. Those fingerprints off the window pane. This was an impossibly depressing tableau yet. Even more laughter rang out in the back room at janis as fingerprints came to its weepy conclusion. That's when it occurred to me that those men didn't sing sad songs to reconnect with sadness. They sang them to let the sadness go. That's when i understood that those saddled songs took real heavy feelings and help distribute their weight and that brings me to the saddest song. I heard on that particular night a song. My old quartet still sings when we get together every decade or so a song so sad chuck can't get through it without giggling playmates. Were they girl and ladd. She's home today. Ladd field sad. Dr who calls whispers low when the last autumn leaves fall then she must go lad with a tear climbs. The tree i'll keep her here murmurs he big man and blue sternly cries. What are you doing there lad. Replies i'm tying the leaves so they won't come down so the wind won't blow them away for the best little girl and the wide wide world is lying so ill today. Her young life must go when the last leaves fall. I'm fixing them fast. So they'll stay. I'm tying the leaves so they won't come down so nelly won't go away. Can you picture a little boy. Desperate to keep his playmate from an early grave tries to prolong her life by tying leaves to a tree. They just don't write on like that anymore. When i learned about jim crow cheese last letter home and the family he left behind.

This is mike and shock. the second half of the podcast known as tutut docking. Is that what we're calling it now. I don't know i some people to pick that up. Yeah i've i've been reading a little bit about that. But two dudes one of whom has a weird looking nose right now and is Wrestling through a narcotic haze of ambivalence and malays and then. There's mike no actually. I was going to say there's a little carl maldon thing going on when your nose is tilted up just a little bit. I'm like man. There's a lot of nostril their way more than there used to be Fans of my facebook page know that last week i finally bit the bullet and got my septum. Put back into the middle of my face for the last forty years or so. It's been not where it should be and so getting it fixed was a it was a thing you know. It was called an open sept plasticity and cut my face open and they shaved my turbo nights and they put my septum back where it belonged and not all happened six days ago and this is really the first day that i've been completely off the medication i'm healing. Minos looks different but most importantly chuck. Wow that is the sound of air going through both nostrils something. I've really not experienced since kevin ran lead. Hit me in the face with that history book back in back in junior high. Well i'll tell you it's gotta be it's gotta be a great feeling for you to be able to breathe because i can't imagine how you did it before i i. I i remember the one time when you were showing me the example and you you held one nostril. You held the good nostril and tried to breathe through the bad one. And you sound like a goose. I know you know being shot. It was terrible. Well it's more like the frog in the boiling water. I it's been bad for a long time. But it got progressively worse to the point where it was so bad. I didn't even realize it. Until i got a cold and whenever i got a cold over the last twenty years or so sleeping was very well. It was impossible. I'm not claustrophobic. But when i can't get in any air at all. I can't lie flat. My mind immediately goes to premature burial. The of amount to lotto everything edgar allan poe ever wrote and the claustrophobia and terror that comes from being buried alive completely overruns my brain and i have to sleep sitting up and so just decided you know. That's no way to go through the rest of my life. So now i can breathe but dude i'm telling you man. This was a very very difficult week. And while i'm positive it's going to be worth it in much the same way. A woman is positive. She's going to grow to love the child. She's currently pumping out her uterus. I'm not quite there yet. But i'm going to get there. No i listen. I I bore witness to only a tiny piece of this Just but i could tell the sound of your voice that you were not in a good way man. You are not in a good way. Well you know what. I'll tell you the short version of the story just to share it with the gang because if somebody wants to write a sad song which of course is what i really wanna talk about but if somebody wants to write a sad song about my nose. I'm officially putting it out there. Right now i would. I would great felipe gleefully commission. Something that that that sums up in music. What happened to me on thursday night. The short version. Is you know this is major surgery. Your nasal cavity. You know it's not it's not just your nose it's a. It's a fist sized chunk of space in the middle of your head and What they did to me was they they. They cut me under the nose. Dr seth did brilliant physician made a few incisions on the inside on each side. And the puled my whole nose back and move the septum and then shaved the terminus. I was under four and a half hours. So when i came out of the general he gave me some of this heidrick own Acetaminophen was like look. Don't let the pain get ahead of you because it's very very difficult to catch up. You know. Take these as directed which i never do. Chuck is you know i take. I take half the pain medication. I i. I don't mind pain. As i understand it but i don't like the feeling of being completely out of my head but three days in you know. I had taken to these things as directed every four hours and three days in. I was still bleeding. Not a lot. I was dripping. And the doctor said there'd be dripping he said if it's a stream like from a faucet call me go to the hospital but you should expect some dripping. It's very vascular part of your your head and you're ab- leader anyway. Whatever that so. I said all right you know and i'm woozy and i get home and i'm kinda medicated. And and the snot starts. And when i say snot i don't even. It's not the snot. You're thinking of this. Is my grandfather snot. This a great grandfathers not. This is not the snot. The homo sapien. You know ought to be creating this nomination of god mucus blood it it just so much of it. Man and had accumulated in both nostrils very very quickly and it formed like a red brick wall impenetrable and yet through that wall the dripping. It never stopped for for three days. I was wearing like this gauze moustache. I would change it every fifteen minutes because it would get soaked with with blood soaked with blood and blood blooms when it hits a tissue or peace of god. So i'm telling myself ad looks worse. Bennett is but after three days every eight seconds drip drip. It's like the tell tale. Heart you know. I just couldn't get it to stop and by thursday night i was. I was worried. So i called the doctor now. This point. it's every six seconds. I'm like doc every six seconds man. There's a big fat drop of blood coming out of my nose and starting to worry. I facetime and rip off my mustache and i show him and dude. It looked like i mean it looked like the blood. In there look look like a small animal earth way it was coagulated an awful and just just everywhere you know and he said you okay. So you're you know it's not a steady stream. I told you leader. How do you know it's not a steady stream. There's a wall of stuff and somehow the bloods getting through. So in my mind. I'm imagining. there's a giant pool of blood up behind my eyes and it would be a steady stream but it can't be so it is what it is An hour later every three seconds. So i call him back. The bathroom has over a hundred pieces of tissue paper. all bright. red bloody rags ev. Everything everything it looks like the last real from kerry right. Irwin insist it's awful and and i'm panicking like an anxiety attack. I'm not. I'm just not in my right mind and and i realize as i'm talking to him i'm holding this piece of tissue and the blood that comes out it's the tissue and i can hear it. It goes and that's when i realized. Oh god i'm hallucinating. I am i am so high on hydra cone. That i'm i can hear the sound that the blood is making when it hits long story short. He's like look. You can go to the hospital if you want. This is worse than normal but it's not unprecedented. You just gotta get through the night. And so i sat there. Chuck all night watching documentaries listening to the sound of my blood drop-by-drop hitting the tissue paper completely high on hydra hydrocarbon. When in the next day he met me at nine o'clock and what he pulled out of my nose. Just i'll wait for somebody to write the song that sums it up because it was just unspeakable. Just i got these splints in my nose. Right one in the astral. These giant capsized hollow devices. And all of the stuff accumulates around them and it. Just i just can't tell you man it was. It was six days three days of absolute hell one day of absolute ambiguity followed by two days of okay i can just i can get through this so they took the splints out yesterday. And here i sit before you today with a with new. A new knows maybe some new content for a chapter of a new book and hopefully a catchy melody for who said well. I'll tell you i I was a little worried about you because you didn't sound so good but you are you. It sounds to me now like you are very close to being back to normal. You've you look about ninety percent definitely i. I mean it's funny. But i can see that your nostrils are more open. Seems really weird but But see he. He said it'll go pretty much back to the way it was. It'll my nose will be straighter in it. Already is straighter but it. It is bigger than it was right now because it's still swollen and he said look don't freak out but over the next week it's actually going to swell up inside some more as it heels and so you're not going to be breathing as as well as you were. You know when. I took this the splints out. But that's that's fine. I just whoever writes the song. Make sure there's verse in it. That captures the The majesty of suddenly having so much air would he pull splints out which might auction offer micro works by the way. Oh my god. He pulled those splints out. The air that rushed into my brain through both nostrils literally made my eyes cross. It was so delicious so delightful And so you know it's like i can't describe it. It's like trying to describe blue to wind person. It was really good like a cool drink of water on a warm summer day. All right that works okun little drink of water on a warm summer day. The air rushed in like that. How how did how did music play. A part of your Your your trauma. Did you listen to much music. I actually this is not. This is not a good story. Because i knew i knew that you and i were going to talk about this chapter and i knew i was going to have to postpone it. We were gonna do it over the weekend in real time right now. this is what is this tuesday morning. Yeah the podcast is late by about four or five hours. Yeah yeah and so at the height of at the height of my fever dream at the very height of drug. Fueled hallucinations where i was listening to the blood land. I was thinking of sad songs. I didn't play anything. I really didn't listen to much music. But i got this chorus stuck in my mind. Chuck from an old song by john prime Famous country singer and young road back in the early seventies. He wrote it. Tuned called sam stone. Sam stone came home tells. A story about a veteran comes home from vietnam. He's addicted to heroin and it john. Pride has a has a way of like the satter. The sentiment the happier the melody sometime. And he's got this this this voice that it doesn't make anything sound sad. Which makes it super weird win. It is but the chorus of sandstone goes like this. There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes. Jesus christ died for. nothing is suppose. Little pitchers have big ears. Don't stop to count the years sweet songs. Never last too long on broken radios. Now the thing that got stuck in my crawl though was just. There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes. I couldn't stop hearing it. And if you don't know what i'm talking about. Take a moment and google sam stone and listen to it. It is one of the saddest songs in my opinion ever written and aside from barbershop. Of course nobody does it better than than country with the possible exception of the blues at a tired genre dedicated to it. So you know there. There's nothing new regarding sad songs if we're gonna talk about their their impact on society but for whatever reason that that little hook and that little thing was running through my mind for about six hours as i sat cross-legged on my bed watching something on the history channel. Listening to the imaginary sound of my blood hit the kleenex. Dumber from sam stone. Google it man. I'm telling you actually don't do it. Because if if if it gets in your crawl it will resurface at a dark moment in your life and that will become the soundtrack. Well it's tough to shake earworm particularly one. That is depressing like that. But i i knew that That you weren't fully fully there are some of the texts i got from you for just like ob- like what were you said. Yeah i don't think we're going to be able to do the podcast today. This was friday. I'm like we never even talked about doing the podcast front so it was just. It was such a weird. Yeah i'm sorry buddy You know i was going. I was toggle back and forth between various levels of lucidity. Yeah you know i. I was never complex not true. I was out of my mind thursday night but then after that it was all just variations on a theme and the doctor. He he took me off the hydra code. And then put me on something called an which is really just more of a sedative and less of a narcotic so i was never fully asleep never fully awake. It was like that time in georgia farm were. Qbc is like upset shift work. Except i also had these two giant objects jammed deep into my nostrils so just walking around in a fog muttering sad songs thinking. Oh yob supposed to talk to talk about that. Today are chuck. can't do today to push it. actually i. I wasn't expecting you call or us to do it. So there's a hole in that his arm where all the money goes jesus. Christ died for nothing i suppose. Oh my god you're kidding. Me stop question. Is what happened to us. Back in nineteen eighty four with those old men in johnny jones when we were overcome with fits of laughter. At at a time that was i. Just i think i know the answer but that combination that weird combination of masculinity and unapologetic sentiment tears and laughter. It it all came back to me was the little. Help from the narcotics. Let me ask you about that. Because i know that story. I was there in johnny jones. I think it was actually earlier than eighty four. 'cause i moved to new york and eighty four. It was it was. Oh yeah that sounds about. Were just out of high school. You graduated in eighty one eight one. Yeah so we were there in. Eighty eighty one. Eighty are forty year reunions or this year yours. What's they cancelled. Nine host phone. Two hours are combined now. Oh that's right. They're doing it in ocean city ocean city. I should go. I got thinking. I'm gonna yeah. I'd love to address the graduating classes of nineteen thousand nine hundred eighty one with a little tune. That goes like this. There's a whole industry where all the money go. We just that image man of like from a kid's point of view is you know. Obviously this is a A cocaine problem. I'm kidding It's a heroin problem but the idea of a kid you know just making sense of it. There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes cat. Jesus christ tying tying the leaves and it's like ingrid right. It's he's songs my favorite sad songs anyway. All attempt to unpack a moment. You know the moment in time the good ones now. There's some there's some great sad songs that tell big epic stories but my favorite ones start with okay. The letter came through the mail chute and landed and the widow recognize the handwriting as that of her dead husband recently buried. Yeah so now. I don't think anybody's written a song about that moment. Either but somebody should. Wow somebody should because it it. Just it blooms like blood on a tissue it just stretches out further and further and keeps going and you can go deep. Goes as you want. But it's all in the service of unpacking that moment. A little boy sees his heroin addicted. Veteran dad take what should be their dinner money and shoot it into the hole in his arm. Would you do with that. You know you're right. Asong a little boy tries to keep his playmate alive by tying the leaves and a tree so they don't come down. Are you frigging kidding. Become winter comes when autumn silver. She's gonna pass away that's right. I'll just keep autumn here right. It's not because of the leukemia. It's not because of the cancer. It's because the leaves are going to drop off the tree so in that childlike way of thinking you can correct the problem by tying the leaves up there so that moment gets distilled and it turns into a song. It's the same thing with fingerprints. The silent tears are falling foolish tears. I wept inveighing. But my heart for god's pain as i kissed away. The stains kissed away. Those fingerprints upon the window pane the moment. The guy walks in. he's not sure. Can you get on with his life or not. His little girls been dead for six months and there. He sees her fingerprints. Yeah he does. He can't wipe them away but he can't leave them there forever. It would drive her mad so he kisses the away and then he writes a song about it. Are you kidding me. There were so many. So many of those i mean it really was just a plethora of songs that we heard kids. That were so sad. You couldn't help. But giggle i would say. Yes a plethora at times though. It felt like an assault if because those old men in johnny jones that there were one hundred thirty people in the course of the chesapeake back in those days and of them all new the same songs in fact they all knew the same songs so any force him at any time could break away and woodshed harmonize. We'd hear the sound of a pitch pipe and then the next lamentation would begin. I aw way. And so it. Just i wanted to write about it because i wanted to try and find a way to to parse the unspeakable sadness with the inappropriate laughter. And it wasn't just you. And i being a couple of dicks laughing at something inappropriate. It was the men themselves. Yes yes as they sang because they too couldn't quite fully shoulder the wait. What did i call it via the mawkishness. Some mawkishness yack right word. Yeah well they were expressing as a grandpa might say melancholy. A- yeah right. we don't use that word anymore. But it's a feeling that we love to feel people love to feel you think of sad songs that was at elton. John song they say so much What are the other ones Cobb wrote them down somewhere there. They're only a jillian so it's all sung blues songs song blue. Everybody knows one. And it's precisely true because everybody's lived one. Yeah you know. We know sad songs because we because we lipset songs but melancholy as i understand it anyway is different than melancholy. Melancholy was what in pose day. They would call what we now call depression. You know if you were in a state of melancholy. Oh you were. You were predisposed to depression and were therefore often depressed. Melancholy is a little different. Come to my melancholy. Baby cuddle up and don't feel blue all your foolish fears. Fancy may be right. It's that word actually appears in a lot of the old songs because the feeling melancholy as opposed to feeling depressed is sometimes cathartic brian and that was the other point. I was trying to make you. There's a difference between wallowing in grief and self pity and lead choosing to sit down and have yourself a good cry for the purpose of of just being Released from something. Yes i wanna That reminds me of. I want to correct something you said about how we were laughing as we were singing the way i remember it is that these guys leaned in to the melancholy leaned in to the sadness. They had tears down there is they. They were feeling every model in moment of it and we're but but they were also aware that this they were they found something to laugh at in the midst of vat feeling and i was going to make is that they. They would finish the song they would. They would embrace the sadness wholeheartedly. But the minute that they hit the last chord that's when the smiles chuckles the giggles and the jokes would come in. Remember what we did at the end of the dumb tying the leaves right. Oh play made come out and play with me now. He owns a she. she does. Because it's like you know something if you're going to write a song that makes me feel that sad through that. I'm going to hit something back over the net. That says hey man. I don't appreciate being manipulated like that. Even though i kinda do no i. I loved it man. I love those. I remember how earnest's fred could be frank. King our mentor and music teacher. You know where i mean. He felt that he would give those speeches before we would go to compete to give a speech to the chorus that he was like patent and he would he. Would you know tears streaming down his face. He'd be all emotional and everything and then and then we would lose and then he would be like well. You know. i'm next time. Well it's the it's it's the. It's the unapologetic sentimentality combined with the undeniable presence of masculinity that for me was the most interesting thing about the course of the chesapeake and interestingly the boy scouts for me your experience might vary. You know boy. Scouts are very different troop troop in the old days. My boy scout troop boxing ring and mandatory shooting lessons. And it was run by a retired drills. Are right right there. Lots of barbershop. Choruses out there that smear on the pancake makeup and sings zippy duda and it's like whatever but the course of the chesapeake those dudes many of them in the second world war korean war the vietnam war. They stood shoulder to shoulder. They loved it when fred king made him cry. They love to be sentimental but they were manly men among men and yeah whoa onto the who cross them. These were guys who who could laugh as heartily as anybody and who also could cry just depending upon the moment they just they played the full gamut and that to me is what i learned. You know what about. I don't know about you but my dad like i don't think my dad. When i was a kid told me that he loved me. I think fred king was the first adult that told me that he loved me. You know while that was different. Yeah no. I didn't know that about you. Know what my dad told told his sons. He loved them but he always did it with a weird kind of what do you call a caveat. So really yeah. That's not to say. I'm not saying my dad's love was conditional it was it was unconditional and it still is. It's just that he loved his wife. More right right right and i talked to him about that on the podcast. A couple of months ago. I recall i talked to my mom about it. And and you know that i never took offense in fact i think it was one of the greatest favors he did. You know he. He didn't he didn't make a big deal of spelling it out but there was no doubt in the minds of my brothers and i that my mom came first to him and then us anyway digression but yeah fred fred. King was not shy about imagine today. Imagine fred king today in a skill you know putting his hands on your shoulders leaning in insane listen to me. I love you. And i want to help you get in touch with something about yourself that you don't even know lives inside of you and then handing you music and forcing you to sing it. This is the same guy who took the snare drum and marched up and down the hallways during the first day he and i went to overly senior high. A we had the same first day. He started saying they're back in. Nineteen seventy seven. I guess was and yet inspiring people to students to follow him out onto the football field for homecoming where he taught them. The school song that people didn't even know they had into saying it again that we're juxtaposition of of making music and an acting and other stuff that you know. Typically goes into sissy category right next to brawling fighting serving shooting. He was a golden gloves boxer. Fred king was yeah was all pro running back. I believe There was a story from his previous school where he Where where someone confronted him and he said okay. Let's go and he actually fought a student. The student and at moved on and there was no issue. There was no calling of parents. There were no it was like okay. Can we move on now. Yes we can thank you. I get it but that was actually that that happened at parkfield where i where i went to junior high and in those days when he was teaching there he was just out of the navy. He was like twenty four years. Old twenty five years old. He wasn't a big guy. Didn't have any teeth. He had lost them all plan football and boxing so he had these. You know these these fake teeth you always wore and in those days you could hold a kid back indefinitely and so there were. There were kids. They're technically still in high school. Who were twenty years old. So you know. He got challenged all the time. Yeah and Oh a legendary story confirmed by several sources he. He laid a guy out flat right in front of the classroom. You're going to go home and tell your mom said no. No and that was that anyway. It was a different time. And you and i were lucky. You know years later to meet him and then to be ushered into this weird world. Where old veterans sat around singing sad songs weeping laughing while buying us seventeen eighteen year olds all the all the contract here. This is not an image to that which is appropriate now not any longer. But you know I was there for that with you. But i also was there not that long ago. I think it was the year before last where you came to l. a. to do a speech about what it means to be a man and you told this story basically about johnny jones and all the sad songs there but you had the benefit of not the written word in a page but you could actually sing them there and what i was. Well i i was working on this chapter and kind of thinking about this when i was invited to give this talk and the the theme of the evening was on manhood and i ask what what what specifically do you want me to talk about is you know is like a dirty jobs. Rumination deadliest catch rumination. I got lots of stories about manly men. Doing lots of men manley things and they talk about whatever you want. I said all right well. This book was in the works in. This chapter was on my mind so i i thought it would be interesting to to talk about fred. King this this man who had this impact on you and me and thousands of other people thousands. Yeah i mean i. I don't think you were living in baltimore when he died. But you know his funeral chuck. The church was standing room only and there were probably four hundred people standing outside. What's interesting was that. There was a hurricane blowing up the coast. It was raining. Cats and dogs and people were standing out in the rain former students. Almost all and i was inside and every single person there. I mean it was truly like wow. This is a wonderful life. If fred king wasn't on the planet you know none of these people would be here and we wouldn't be having this conversation. But the the point of the story vis-a-vis the speech was to say that this this most unusual man was manly exactly because he didn't give a damn what anybody thought about. The songs he sang in the life lived and the way that he lifted and to to be able to to be a a role model to us the way he was and at the same time inspire so many other people with with music and so many different ways. I that's the thing. I tried to unpack and so talking about. These sad songs in a book is one thing you can type the lyrics out and hope people read them or maybe google them and get some sense of it. But i realized when. I was standing in front of that crowd you know. I think it was little powell that i came to mind. I mentioned it in the in the book but that that song. A man falsely accused of a crime crime. You didn't commit is going off to prison. And he turns to his his little boy who will likely never see him again and says little pile if daddy gozo where parameters you'll be good from day to day do as a mother says and never see. Be the man your daddy might have been. I could type that out and but to stand there and sorry about theo vocal technique. My nose really hot mess at the moment. But i realized that standing on that stage singing a song like that to a crowd like that was having an impact not the same impacted. Fred had on you. And i of course but how many bela celebrities walk out on stage and sing a song. That was written one hundred years ago in the service of manhood. One right so. I'm not saying it was a great speech. I'm saying it was a different one and probably not the one they were expecting. But it's weird man that there's a chapter in this book called you know a manly man a gold watch and a really big seat which go on. Don't don't ever correct me on the podcast. Joe yeah sorry about that. Look i'm still somewhat medicaid. I'm tired of making excuses. But yeah are you in fact. I'm really starting to lean into it. You really are. Yeah okay look. I guess i'm still trying to figure it out. I'm nearly sixty years old. And if there's some sort of playbook for what it means to be a man. I think it's still being written and i personally believe that. There must be a chapter in there somewhere that that tries to parse this weird mix of sentimentality with masculinity. That's really all i meant to say. Yes yes the. And that's that's exactly what it was and fred was a master of that. You're pretty good at a too but the idea of conveying emotion in a masculine way. I think that's really the the the the thick of it is that To be a man and to be a masculine man but still to say something that might bring a tear. To someone's i is a skill that not everyone possesses. I don't even know. If it's a skill i think it's a choice you know it's being vulnerable is what it is not gonna be all sensitive about it because i don't. I'm not in the pajama boy. Camp right i don't. I don't think that there was a camp of pajama boys. Google pajama boy. You'll find them. What is it that seems weird. I don't remember now. What was an ad for around christmas and a guy. A guys wearing pajamas. I don't just google pajama boy. All right it was a thing for a while. This isn't that okay. it's it's more about. It's more about being vulnerable. And letting people see you at your maybe not your worst but maybe at your weakest and and and fred was not afraid to do that you know he was not afraid to cry. Yes which is different than saying. Oh gather round everybody. I'm going to cry for you now. If it was never the goal it was just a symptom of a of a really passionate emotional guy who didn't care to ever hide his passions promotions. Have i think is interesting. Have you ever seen your dad. Cry twice her yeah Yeah once when his dad died and a year ago. I saw him weep in much the same way. I saw myself weep three days ago. I don't know that i. I don't know that. I mentioned this at the outset. But this is probably a good place to start to land the plane. But when i at my worst moment this week. When i was on the phone with the doctor listening to the imaginary sound a drop of blood makes when it hits the tissue. I looked in the mirror. I'm standing there in my underwear with this awful. I got a splint on the outside of my nose in splints on the inside. I don't even look like myself. I don't recognize myself. I'm covered with blood. i'm laughing at. I'm crying tears. Chuck real tears are streaming down my face. I'm laughing at the sight of myself but not feeling any humor at all because this giant narcotic haze is hanging over me and my dad my dad a year ago and i'm not saying anything i haven't already talked about on facebook. My mother wrote a chapter about this. Is the testicle store. S of yes my dad. A he had a hydra seal. You know hernia inguinal hernia and a hydroxyl procedure which led to massive swelling drainage right all that fluid oz gotta go somewhere and it goes to your scrotum. My dad's offroad him swelled up like in my mother's words some sort of pineapple pineapple. No she went through the whole litany of fruits vegetables. You finally settled on eggplant and she wrote about it in terms of the blackened eggplant now. My dad is a is a circumspect man. he you know he doesn't share. Necessarily he's modest to a fault. He doesn't cry to answer your question much at all. But when i went home to see him because my mother said look something's wrong you know i mean it's not just the fact that your dad's scrotum is now the size of eggplant. He's he's depressed. He's he's crying he's not in his he's not in his right mind. Of course he was on medicine as well right. But i now that you mention it i. I realize what was really happening is for me three days ago and for my daddy year or so ago. We were both coming to terms with the fact that we weren't in control of our bodies our bodies were letting us down. Yeah something was happening. That we simply couldn't control for me a steady drip of blood out of a knows that didn't look like my own for him a scrotum that was something the size of an egg plant. And you know somewhere in the back of his mind. I'm sure he realized for his wife content galore and between us. My mother immediately started writing about it. She sent me an early draft of hysterical essay. I retitled scrotum land. everything became about. My dad's scrotum this shy retiring circumspect modest man when i walked into the apartment. He's standing there and he says michael lewis things now. Does this look normal. I'm like no. It doesn't look normal unless you're at the state fair in the eggplant competition. You know what else. It doesn't look normal. You drop in trowel right here in the living room. He was showing off his giant soedomo. The way you would show off you know a new tattoo. If you were really proud of it yes or confused by proud and confused. So i guess a i guess gentle listener if you're seriously going to sit down and try and write a song about the moment ingrid saw that Handwriting on that letter from her dead husband or the moment micro heard the sound that blood makes when it hits a tissue you might as well jot down a few bars about the time on rope. Pulled his underpants down. And says does this look normal daw because that is a sad song by friends to be written song atlanta. hey Before we go. I want to ask you. What's the last movie scene that you that made you cry. Or what's the one that gets you every time Well you know it's funny. The lockdown i think has made more people and this people have been more more people have been sadder in general. I think in my lifetime during the last year than ever right. yep. And i know that. Tv's powerful I got an answer to your question but by way of preface i got i gotta tell you. I saw a mcdonald's commercial. You were going to say that. I knew you were gonna say about eight months ago. You know the one the old guys behind the counter. He's working part time. It's a thirty second spot how they managed to impart in thirty seconds that the old man is a widower and he's just trying to fill his time by helping people so he gets a job at mcdonalds and the asks a couple of young kids if they want fries with that and the young kids are so nice to the old man and the old man is so nice to the kids. And it's just like a big mac and fries and coke and he offers some change and they say keep the change. And i'm sitting there. I realize man might. My lower lip is doing that. The question to think. Yes i and suddenly i'm like. Why does my gin and tonic. Tastes salty weeping into my gin and tonic on account of damn donald's commercial. Yes man i. I know exactly that feeling. Did the exact same thing. Last year was a sad year. But it doesn't matter. Pandemic lockdown or not at the end of saving private ryan when the old private ryan. The old man is kneeling there at the grave of tom. Hanks knowing that he died too to save him and everybody else in the platoon basically died to save him tom. Hanks's last words. Remember he pulls him close and he says to matt young private ryan earned this make it count make it count and now sixty years later. The old man kneeling at the grave with his wife and family behind of tears streaming down his face and he sang was. I was a good man right and his wife is there to say. Yes yes you made it count and then the music of course. The music swells behind that. I'm sorry i you can run it right now and i would cry and then afterwards we would laugh about the fact that were a couple of dudes crying at a moment the screen for a moment in the back room of a dive bar in highland town in nineteen eighty two whatever in the words of crowded house wherever there is comfort there is pain. True words never spoken. I'll tell you that There was a lot of tears in holland town back in the day there was. Yeah there were. Hey we have a conference call. Were supposed to be on. Yeah yeah so we we. We need to wrap this up Listening we really appreciate it if he likes episode. I'm thinking we got more than one at this point if we don't. I'm speaking to each listener. As if they're the only one listening because they probably the only one listening right now listeners. Take a look around around you right now. Who's listening to the same thing that you're listening to probably not we're talking to you and if you'd like this share it with someone else and if you don't share it with someone else feeling is that more people should share things. They're not crazy about. I just really think in the interest of broadening everyone's horizon we ought not just get stuck in this five star world right thought. This was pretty good. Give it a listen. This was a little bit of okay. Let me know if you're right now know what i'm saying. Is you know what this fell. Short of the mark. I'm still giving it five stars. And i think you should give it five stars to even as you listen and wallow in the sadness. The disappointment the weirdness of mike's bloodbath and his dad's giant scrotum for all these reasons five stars for what's his podcast called. Though way i heard it that could charlie thank you. Oh and if you want the book do they know what to do. If they're want their book they download the book where people download books and then they listen to the entire book probably audible or some such place but is come back here next week. Yeah you listen to a couple of knuckleheads unpacking one. Painful sentence at a time for free. Hey by the way yes how things go with that whole bluetooth thing. The remember the sponsor for a week or so ago yes. I'm getting tons of email from people. Say they love. I they they let me write a commercial apparent i did and now people are wondering hayes bluetooth coming back and i don't know as a producer i wonder if you have any insight Yes i do nothing that. I'm certain to share at this moment but yes i believe they will be back for more. Choose of the blue well if you talk to them. Just tell them that. I said i'd be up for it. I see what you did there. Okay all right chess. There's a hole in daddy's girl money. Go jesus christ died. Another little pitchers have thrown stopped to count the years sweet songs. Never last too long on broken radio.

Dot com Be honest with me. Tempted to invest in crypto currencies. Investing in crypto is not. Everyone is a risky unregulated and highly volatile area of the market as last week's plunge in the value of bitcoin shown chances are someone you know is happy to post about how much money they've made this year as the price of. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies surged higher. The podcast listeners. Sam that person is his kid brother. He's still a high of the going back and had a tougher. Dummies manual on the side of them. I don't really think anything of it years later. When sam's friends started dabbling cripsy. He asked his brother if he'd been doing the same. Came out and vote this information. He's been doing it for years. Learning about it the whole time. He was doing quite well. There's gonna say how much does he made. He was a bit as since. Tell me at first. But he says portfolio was about thirty grand and he'd invested three thousand pounds over the four years. How did that make you feel very surprised. And then it made me feel stupid. Wow nineteen this. Basically sam has found that famous famous missing out is proving hall to resist feeling stephen. What about the phone. Low fares losing house if cryp turns out to be a gigantic welcome to money clinic. Weekly procast for the financial times dedicated to tackling real life financial. Issues i'm cranberries the f. T. consumer editor this week. We're considering the pros and cons of investing. In crypto is one of the topics. I get the most messages from listeners. About but i cannot stress enough. This is a general discussion and is not intended as financial advice or any kind of investment recommendation. Now that's clear let's get to today's guest work. Freelance in music as a dj. And i write dance. Music self-employed sam is about to turn. But what the pandemic has done to his finances over. The past year has not met him with much to celebrate it. Kind of went from you know busy every weekend and then completely nothing in of night. Basically i'm the tightest of moneywise in the moment. Yeah you must be really glad that you've got your first booking next week. What kind of music do you play. Yeah it is closest to tacna. Basically kind of lhamo influenced by uk. Dance music yards from base crime. Jungle that kind of thing but yeah kind of european. I'd say of course is quite doc. It's quite it's not really something you'd want to listen to to cut. I think no even in the house. Yeah they go. Yeah certain times possibly. I love a bit of technical him. The heaver luckily sam had some savings to fall back on during the pandemic. And he's been able to win some money composing music with look down easing his thiry. This filling up confident. He can play the markets with the help of his brother. He's decided to take bold step and invest the last two thousand pounds of his savings into various cryptocurrencies. I mean that's a pretty big risk for you at the main in this waiting room. Save the good to come back. I is a big risk. Yeah that's kind of unlike comanche. I'm not yeah slightly. I've character but it just seems like it's possible i could say salmon's attracted by the huge gains brotherhood made but had he ever invested in anything more conventional like us stocks and shares eissa pension. Anything like that no pension. Yeah no savings of any substance. Really no give me that information before ever whereas i had some information on this presumably you wouldn't gamble that money. You put it all so comes through an online. I've been focusing on. You know to me that seem stupid. That seems like a throwing money away so this this is the thing but i think he's like a bit. More of a balance is bit more informed gambling. The head of the bank of england andrew. Bailey has repeatedly warned cryptovest investors. This is a gamble that may end badly prepared to leave all your money. That would be my serious warning. How would you feel if you ended up with nothing. Left at the end of it be upset. I mean the plan is to withdraw. My initial investments takeout. Why initially put in and then the rest is just profits. If if this doesn't work out gonna make christmas in the future with your brother. A barrel is were me awkward at christmas. I mean it'll be sad. Because he's got similar investments that he would have awesome. Yeah i said to gonna. You're going to be rich. He said ali the rich wrong lee. The show wrong gameshows rich convey bad one sam sense. His confidence in crypts are comes from all the research. he's been doing online so i did. All of that may chew gone to twitter. And he's not letting about things like chain decentralized finance or less things he's nine to take everything his with a hefty pinch of salt. If you put any of your crypto coins into youtube they will be someone with twenty thousand followers telling you this coins gonna do times ten this year and you need to buy now so every coin wild. So that's why i bit. Julius sam's onsite been encouraged by famous investors like tesla founder elon. Musk pumping billions of dollars into crypt type. Crypto in is the future carthy of them. And it's like well. Which one is it going to be And maybe it'll be multiple but it should be considered speculation at the point dump. Got the former crypto. Don't though some rare words of caution from elon musk earlier. This year and any criticism investor knows his tweets have the power to send prices. Soaring crashing ditch. Which is what happened to bitcoin. Recently that coin prices sink after uterus from elon musk. that wall street analysts called a shocker. Having said tesla would accept payment for its calls and bitcoin. Musk reverse that decision citing the energy intensive nature of mining bitcoin with cpa can pieces and the environmental damage. This calls in fact. Sam doesn't hold any bitcoin himself. He favors smaller less. Well-known crypto currencies and he's purchased those easing exchange cool finance and which are the coins the e have invested if arium aucoin are sa aucoin x. v which is haven and caught on him not bitcoin itself not bitcoin itself. I did have a little bit but it was like a tiny amount. You know. I couldn't afford much of it but i guess that's what you're trying to spot which one might be the next break three yet. It is the ones with more headroom for increasing your money. Basically sam's picked some of these coins as they've attracted attention from professional investors still. I was worried about the risks. You've got a small amount of money in it's kind of throwing the dartboard of cryptovest kind of hoping that you hit the bullseye. Because that's the biggest thing that you can get. The book just seems like seems like the future really. That seems like where it should be going and more control of your money and the bank having less control over it. Yeah that's quite exciting. But you kind of feel that. A normal blake lanky. Who's got more of a chance in the alternative system than in the mainstream. Yeah i feel like that. The knowledge is easier to at the moment with cryptocurrency. I've never been told anything about regular finance before or investing. I think this is more on your terms. Sam sake i hope. His ferrari into crypto turns out to be exciting in a good way. But what does he want to hear from. The poll counts neck spots. I think i'd like to find less risky way of investing into cryptocurrency. I definitely like to hear the experts. Views on whether the prospect crypto could go next. What with the advice be for someone like me who self employed investing in crypto as opposed to the conventional investment methods tons is a highly experienced london financial professional. He's recently started. Investing in crypto within his own failure. Name is abby shakes. I run vicente hedging. Which is a derivative consultancy and i am an investor in cryptocurrency so i started investing my funds personally in january of this year and three chunks. I've invested initially around twenty thousand pounds and currently that is up to about thirty five thousand pounds of value which is a significant cain. Every shack was recently quoted in the financial times. Saying i can give you twenty reasons. Why investing in. Bitcoin is a good idea and twenty reasons. Why it's a crap de he's been a conventional investor for decades so what convinced him to enter the crypto market now i've only recently toppled my feet into crypto neutral about three or four months ago very simply because there is a significant increase in the level of mainstream investors and large hedge funds and global investment banks. Who are taking this seriously. Not just with words but backed by action and certainly not something that sam is looking to is feeling encourage by. But it could be your room. No no you're right. And just because jp morgan does something doesn't mean everyone else is going to follow me. We saw that with the kind of recent superleague fiasco coins but j. p. morgan isn't the only one goldman sachs city head from billionaires and of course the tweeting techno king himself elon. Musk who has vowed that. Tesla ain't sal anymore. it's bitcoin holdings what actually gives me. More encouragement is not just the these institutions during these institutions can afford to make pets and lose money but also you've got central bankers who are really paying attention to this fact. The bank of england has already set up a task force to investigate creating its own digital currency. Now that doesn't get to be dealing with bitcoin or anything like that but it isn't something which can be readily ignored. In my view. I wanted to explore aber shacks own cryptic strategy starting off with how he approaches valuation. I don't understand what drives the price of bitcoin. Right on be honest. I genuinely doug i think it's it's difficult to see what intrinsic value at has a. How can you evaluate on itself. But that doesn't mean it doesn't have extras value. I e he can still go walking down with demand and supply. So i think just because you don't understand something fully doesn't necessarily mean you how some exposure to it crypt type is incredibly volatile. Abbas check news. There are no guarantees. The value of his investments will increase. So how is he managing that risk asleep. I am choosing to invest only a small portion of my portfolio that means no more than five percent of the amount that i have in my equity portfolio stocks sheds and another way that trying to manage the risk is by trying to focus on the mole mature end which probably means less growth. I'm shack was also concerned to hear that. Sam has put all savings into crypto. Doesn't have a pension or stocks and shares iso-. I push myself quite traditional and maybe a little bit stuffy but you should be. Considering crypto only as part of a white a diversified portfolio of investments regular saving is really important in the earlier. You start even if it's just a few pounds a week or a few pounds a day does make a difference and when it's about your pension and long-term savings is about getting rich slowly check only owns. The most established cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin cerium and ripple i asked him why there are something like ten thousand different crypto currencies out there and there will be lots of casualties and volatilities the way there's no way. Ten thousand cryptocurrencies stupid to be in a few years time. So what does he think of. Sam strategy targeting lesser known coins that could potentially produce much higher returns. If they take off that is incredibly risky approach and i would say that is okay to do. If you understand that you could lose all your money and that you are not putting all of your allocated funds into doing so as long as you understand that that. I think it's okay to have a bit of a flutter endured so it's not the approach i'm taking objects first lesson for less experienced. Investors like sam stone smooth. How much cash you have think about taking a small portion of that maybe just five ten percent to begin with and just kind of almost genetic bit of a kind of play around money to begin with get used to it. Second thing to invest your money at once so my particular investments. I've spread out to Lawsuit of three months so do small chunks. There's no reason why you have to buy everything today. Maybe by some maybe sell some so you get comfortable with how it works and with over ten thousand coins out there. Think very carefully about the ones. You cheese maybe start off. With some of the more well known currencies. I liked bitcoin. Three republic cetera et cetera. And then as you become more confident or you want to take more risk than start maybe allocate smaller amounts of money to other crypto currencies. If that's what you want to do. And how could you go about choosing those have about what makes that particular crypto currency unique. Have think about what kind of exchanges can it be bought. Sold on for example if you can't buy it on something like financial coined vice that that might set up a bit of a warning signal that actually this is very very specialist an isa satiric. I wouldn't just investing one cryptocurrency. Spread them out a little bit so you do have a chance of packing a few of the leading causes but as we know this is not abstract strategy as yes it will also be dependent upon what i see the larger global financial institutions. Do because that's why like to follow boeing creek. Time is one thing but what about sending it now when it comes to your own long term strategy with the coins the invested it all year long term. Buy and hold person with cryptocurrencies. My genuine outside. He's actually. I really don't to be honest with part of me. Feels that once. I've made a one hundred percent gain in my investment. Then i may withdrawal my initial capita amount so then what i have left vested is just kind of free money in just to make that clinton ever schick started off by investing twenty thousand pounds but if and when the value of his crypt type fighting reaches forty thousand pounds intends to sell off. Then keep hof. This is a common strategy. Investors us with other high risk assets but remember. There's no guarantee that you will w.'ll money. Investing critically directly. Sounds too wild. Your tastes then. There are other ways that you could gain a small amount of exposure. So one big thing. Which i think is going to happen. Very soon is the etf an exchange traded fund which is simple. I just a very low cost way of tracking a particular index or market. So that's a nice low cost way of people being able to get exposure to a basket of cryptocurrencies. We'll keep our eyes peeled for that. And here's another approach to investing encrypts u. s. She sort of take the kind of pace and shovels approach people do with cold. Investing whatever shat means is instead of trying to make money in the crypts goldrush invest in the picks and shovels ease to extract it in other words the companies listed on the stock market servicing. The growing crypto economy. A couple of ways of doing activities buying in for example shares in one of the large exchanges like queen base which we simply listed another firm which people may want to consider. Which is this did in canada's called galaxy digital which effectively provides investors with services such as holding their cryptocurrency in helping them to exchange and finally. I wish things a key test of cryptos. Maturity will be when more people use it for payments rather than view it as a speculative investment. He thinks could happen sooner. Rather than later lucaci innovated over the last twelve months because of the pandemic. So i think this kind of rate of acceleration still change. We still go down to local tesco's and use it to buy some milk but that's okay because you can still buy big ticket items minute and maybe even start using get one day even his collateral for getting your first mortgage and i think that's going to be as far as people think as an investor myself. One of the biggest crypto attornal is that you were effectively putting money into the form of currency. The navy wants to actually spend on. Explored this conundrum with my financial times colleague eve as ali the currencies correspondent. How do you value something that you're not even sure if it's a currency is it a commodity it is historic value or more investors. Believe that bitcoin is a good store of value that could rival potentially gold at present investors were going to. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is a store of value. Is evil a saying that assets that hopefully against to keep rising but this clashes with the view of crypto as an alternative currency in means of payment. Because i'm not gonna pay for by bread and milk with something that i think we'll be worth more tomorrow is today well. There's the pop narrow. I live in hackney. The a few years ago started taking bitcoin payment for pints of beer. And i often wonder if you use the bitcoin to buy a pint of beer five or six years ago. How much would you paid for that point in today's money thousands of pounds ten minutes probably needs therapy. In this case i would see awful and that's what's causing regulators the problem as well. How do you classify who's guards oversight over it what is it. Some of course like crypto investors wants to know if prices keep heading up basically. It's a financial markets mama. You know there are some people who say that it will make this current financial set up completely different if not obsolete whereas they are still a lot of people who say that is just a pyramid scheme. It's nothing but one of the world's greatest ponzi schemes won't is implying. Is that rush into crypto from small investors. Like sam professional players like attache all the way up to large institutions like wall street. Thanks is what's really driving. Demand and fueling the price rises rather than any intrinsic valley. Cryptos a wild ride. That's why people say don't invest your money into it. I've spoken to hedge funds in new york who say de investors are writing them checks without understanding what they're investing in so there is an awful lot of funny piling into crypto. That's really just hope that it will somehow magically turn into an awful lot of money playing devil's advocate. What happens if it doesn't people content to record ages because that's the beauty of it investing your own money in your own way and into something that's decentralized an anti establishment but the flip side of that is that you are all the prophets but also the losses. There's no complaints department. This lack of protection for investors is something sam these to remember the either says what's really changing now. Is that move by. Big banks to get exposure to bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It's definitely attracted a lot more attention from hedge funds insurance companies asset managers. Which is the reason why banks are cautiously entering this space and that's driven by client demand. It's not retail investors. But your big managers who are also managing a lot of retail messed. Its pensions and will interested to know that. The involvement of professional investors could the price volatility that bitcoin especially has seen in the past five years. It feels like if there is a crash so if we went down from fifty seven to thirty thousand they'd would probably be quite a large institutional investors coming in to buy it something that didn't happen in two thousand seventeen. What worries her is how many young people are going all guns blazing into crypto shining more conventional forms of saving an investment. I have a twenty year old son and he texts me every day. Sit new coin in the shiba inu. I think young investors. It's very natural space for them to invest. I can't get my son to read one of my articles but he would happily do that on his phone. But i'm pretty confident that they not fully aware of the risks. It can go very wrong so quickly. Price fluctuations and not the only risk. An estimated sixty billion dollars has been lost. Globally to crept forward over the past. Ten years. crypto is at the moment attractive to scammers because there is such a high of everyone's hearing about people who are getting rich in quitting jobs in naples gardiner. Who is hoping to buy a house in antiga especially wary of investing in coins for the not solo major exchanges. An seem that anyone who approaches you about crypto investments via social media is proably a scammer is just very hard to not feel a little bit cautious because of this hype but also just provides such a rich hunting ground for people who are in the business of scamming others. And it's definitely not gonna get any better since i met sam two weeks ago. The price of a bitcoin and other crypto currencies has plunged by the time. You listen to this podcast. Prices could have recovered but it goes to show how volatile this type of investing really is. Sam it's been a pretty rocky week for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Satiate wants it done to your failure to trump's a big time yeah Because you know intend to solve. Stop looking at that point and wait till it gets better. The highest sam's portfolio had reached with seven and a half thousand dollars. What is it today yet. Five thousand one hundred and sixty still in prophet yesterday prophet which is good but i could have sold at seven thousand a made far moment. How do you feel about that manure. Intentions always been to hold onto it for longer. Yeah absolutely i think. I've just accepted that the fluctuations such a conventional possibly It's nothing to be too concerned about until maybe the general consensus that it's not gonna get any better. What do you think of the knees about is causing that big drop say basically regulators in china have said they want to crack down on financial institutions using cryptocurrencies. So just seems so ambiguous chaotic. But it's hard to find the points to get your head around it. I mean even avid professional investor. He said he doesn't understand. What really drives the price other than these kind of big news events. I mean how do you feel in general about this level of volatility in something that you invest in yet it is concerning your always just hoping a comes back out of the dip is going into say you're not tempted to sat out. No i wouldn't sell out when it's down so high. Try to say the other things that the experts had to say that what things stood out the uncertainty and what stood out about the first investor was yet like he said hey doesn't really have a complete understanding of what makes volatility. I mean yeah. I thought it was just me. I thought someone would have more of a grasp on so that was quite surprising. And how about how. He was keeping the very small part of his poor failure yet. That concerns me saying five percent and hundred percent of my investment. I've got no conventional investments. What did you think of even when she was talking about how the bigger banks and financial institutions are getting more interested in crypto. And that's kind of making it slightly safer place for people you might think then on the other hand eighteen billion pounds worth of fraud yet it makes me feel a bit better than the big institutions are getting on board definitely overtime. You'd want to see that volatility decrease. The fraud thing is very scary. I mean that's incredible amount of money for people to lose and protection of that is very worry. I mean she said there is no complaints to form. Yeah i think generally. I'm going to diversify the portfolio answer more conventional methods and even just start saving hopefully bring the ratio down a lot. More from in crypto. Yeah i think that's something. I've taken away the thing that you should pudding. You'll thousand pounds into crypto because i think regardless of the money that you will make or lose. What you've gained is huge understanding of investing in general. I think you're completely right is a step in the right direction for thinking about long-term finances but yet too risky. I think to have it all in now. Have you spoken to the news break in bitcoins price plunged. I haven't spoke to him. actually. I think he's been around for a while so he's seeing this happen a few times these sanguine about these. Yes i think. So which is which is good to get a perspective on friends of mine. the new investors. I was panicking. So it's nice to have the money clinic with me this week.

Yeah yeah that's that's a fact and it's like well at least at least at least going outside tomorrow is also cancelled. The one good thing yeah. That's a you know it's been like drizzle on a lot here so I mean I hear you. I agr- y'All motherfuckers need that. She is now no. I don't mind it at all when it rains here. It has been right in here a lot like four hair. It's been raining fut- low but to me. It's like everybody's locked up anyway. So and the earth maids it so fuck it. Bring it home as far as yeah for the after people that don't know the plight of like no rainfall in Burbank. La like the last time. I was out there which was literally right before. This pandemic shift started One the day before I left it rained a lot and I had to walk somewhere and I was like walk in and of course our God damn it you know having to walk in the rain but like I saw like three to four different people who were like looking up at the sky with smiles on their faces just getting douched Ryan like. Oh my God yes so. It's it's much needed a journal. You there how you feel about the rain about whatever. Girls lost his mind I'm saying that based on just shaved his head bald not slick Bala. They didn't raise her it. But I mean the closest thing you can do without raising it. I want you Britney. Yeah man it was. It was drunk. It was crying in a bathroom. It was not listening to my dad even though he probably have my best interests at heart. Although I'm not sure that seems pretty. Not My dad hers Did you stare into the mirror while Dune was your shirt off? Will I mean you know two things in movies? Yeah that's how you cut your hair. Oh you're right that's true damn although sane. Sing so much different now always. It's so they're always framed so I'll man is some heavy shit right here and it never once occurred to me like well how else I suppose to do it for. The last time I got this I was real anxious and I was smoking a lot of weed and And I give him a haircut and I didn't do it like this but I kinda fucked it up and had to go further but I did about like walking by the mirror in hate my fucking face. You know trae remember but do you remember. Elliot right hall techs literally the only person who ever laugh. It's been and I mean fallen into the floor holding his belly laughing at me because I hate myself so much. I gave myself a haircut while an audience. And then you know this was years ago. Maybe I just wasn't good enough at comedy but I feel like what was happening. Was everyone was going. We don't relate to this at all urged player something because we don't find it funny anyway. That's what happened here. Guys I had. I did have a run in with pills but that had nothing to do with the haircut as far as I can tell I've been I think being cooped up at a lot to do with it and I do think probably had something to do with it but mostly man. I just been thinking about doing it for a while. Because I know I'm going Bob and I was like oh quarantine. No dates no public appearances. This is a chance to just see what my head looks like. So I can get my brain and Andy remind me she was like you. Did this like our second year of dating. I was like Oh. Yeah because it's look pictures Are you worried at all coming back? Lael she's worried that the front will grow in quick enough. What I I looked I looked it up. That's not how it works. Okay your hair grows until it falls out. There's no like right. Yeah that's it's either there or it's not right is what you're saying if you if you're follicle still works it's going to grow as good Until it just stops working in its go. I will say surprised by how thick it is. Wear it is. The hairline is not in great shape. But we're the hairlines starts. It's not as bad as I expect. Well that's something again these trying times because boys a another week another hero to mourn John Crime succumbed to cover not team Last week it was. Actually it happened. Four our last podcast came out but after we recorded it so we have not yet addressed as a group. I know we all addressed in our way on social media but just I mean a monumental loss and one of the absolute goats singer Songwriters They ever have been. Yeah it's IT'S A it's like it's doubly worse too and my like just for me personally. On account of I won't say that I've written it off but like found out he was stable. I was like okay. A man in John Ron's health like if he was critical and then was able to go from critical stable. Then like the worst of its over. Mabul is going to be fine so I it hit me like a fucking ton of bricks already been like Palea night. No by taking them John Brennan. It really really sucks. Actually like you said he was. He was the go. He's the he's the dude that during these times you know we lean on and shit so it just don't hit very Ryan of the Earth to have done this so ripen of the side. Did I ascend our thought processes you like? You said I didn't write it off either. But he went. It was announced. He was a critical condition than if I'm not mistaken new very next day. It says his condition was stable and they did say they're like. Seinfeld doesn't mean improving just so you know but it's better than critical obviously but then it stayed that way at least publicly as far as anybody new four days whereas I joe you know it may depend the WII. The news got out. Oh Joseph -I found out one day that he had it in an found out the next day that he died from it and Razz crying. He had it was critical than stable. And then it was like a week. I think yeah like a week or more than it because I was getting up is so grim. I was getting. I was waking up every morning and checking my phone like first thing to say what had happened with John Bryan and after like a week of of nothing happening with the good news in that scenario I also got outside. Okay I think his all right and it's like as soon as I started thinking. Yeah I was Andy Andy cried first of all it was. It was a rough moment in our house I guess for me. It was a little different because I was sort of going the opposite and that every day that they didn't say he was released or that he was improved. I was scared because out and I I recently in live learned. Stable didn't mean improved. I stable on its own doesn't mean improve. I thought if you went from critical to stable that was an aide and what I've learned retained. It just means you're not getting worse. I also have been watching breaking bad and learned that remission sometimes just means you're cancer stopped growing. Yeah so it's like foot doctors. You know what I mean for this false hope bullshitter pedaling but that aside Romaine every day. I said it right the whole time but we're stupid and Harvard wrong. I guess I guess with stable. That's fair with remission. I duNNo Man. Maybe more maybe. That'S THE ONLY CONTEXT. I know that words. So that's why anyway For me it was more like every day that didn't hear good news and because of his age and the fact that he had cancer before and all that I was like. Oh man he's not he's not going to get out but I'm also sometimes kind of negative. Well I mean I hear you do like. We did the second. They said John. Cryan has corona virus even before I saw that he was critical disperse as soon as I heard that I was like well. John prompted like I didn't even it wasn't even a question because of his age and because he's had cancer because of I mean frankly like fuck is age like the lifestyle that he'd lived and still made it to that he's like so so no. I don't think that's being grim. That's just being you know really a deal. When I heard that he had stabilized. I did get hopeful. It's just that as the days go by instead of improving my attitude. Because they didn't say anything other other positive things I I got less and less I wasn't you know it's like just to speak positively about it. John Brown is concerned in anybody. That knows anything about present day Americana Music as as it's called like probably already knows this but like it's kind of wild in my opinion because prime has been around for so long you know says he's but he's like such. He's like such a clear and direct predecessor and influence of your like your. Jason is bowls in your all of them the truckers. I mean all of those guys hugely influenced by John Prime but like not just influenced by. But I'm saying Mike I don't know in a wet. It's extremely clear. Automated like you can listen. Like a Bruce springsteen and listen to the early gaslight anthem and clearly there like these guys are influenced by spring staying but like in a way that wasn't as like pronounced in my opinion as John. Cryan was the kind of like four bearer of what we call Americana Music Man. Yeah and I'll say to piggyback off. I mean when you put me in earlier you may have noticed I had on my watch brandy. Carlisle Dany not going for woke points. But to make the point that he was championing women in that In that circle in that world would ever before it was cool but before it was cool. He was doing that. I mean he's a sign Kelsey Walden. Who asked fucking love to his label. And that's another thing that sucks. It's beautiful like you reporting out tray and that is positive but it's an is the part of the emptiness it's gone with prime is not just the man in the songwriting. I mean Oh boy. Records will never be the same right knowing. You're right man. I mean dude. Iris dement is synonymous John. Prime and you don't think about one without the other and that was his. That was his deal. I I mean he would just you know he was before he was before his time of his time. After his time he's timeless he was taste. Yeah Yeah Yeah. He's the he's as his song said he's the he's the oldest by being in the world. Do you mentioned dement. In the first time I heard her voice probably on his song. My friend been used to play me. Her stuff and been was a big fan and I was like who is who is these are cement. She was on the John. Problems like Why isn't she huge? He's like Oh she's too weird and at the time country music and before Americana was what it is you know that was a death knell for a woman actually and didn't give a fuck man now hell no one shells. We did this without defeat. Another tar nine one but pick your personal favorite Crohn's on a no repeat somebody. Pictures announced that facts within pick something else. Okay okay man aged twenty i. I mean I'll probably end up throwing another answering their after. Y'All go because right now I'm not gonNA say necessarily that. It's my favorite though. It's Kinda hard like every single one of his songs I could say is my favorite at some at one point during the weaker depend on the mode. I am but in my opinion the best thing you ever did with Sam Stein. I think it's beautiful. It's heartbreaking it's I mean you know nothing. Nothing quite sums up American warfare and what it's done to soldiers on a personal level and the real struggle back com more so than Sam Stein. That was also. I'm fairly certain on prime fucking debut record like he wrote that when he was like twenty one. Like it's crazy. Is David Records unbelievable? It's a greatest hits. It's literally a greatest hits like. It's it's nuts the shit that so I'm GonNa say Sam Stone Right now. I may change the after. Y'All go but right now man onced. I don't know if it's recently bias. Latest album is to me a triumph and imagine it's unbelievable. I'm starting to emotional. Unbelievable that a man could do that at his age. Yup remain so Relevant and in tune with the Zeitgeist or whatever sound bullshit. But I'm I mean everywhere. This and summer's end is probably my favorite song on there. I really What's the last song it's called open up? When I get to heaven I realized Which is obviously timely But I think summer's end is it's like it was like all his songs. It's so sad and so hopeful. Yeah that song is fucking insanely good. I tweeted something that the you know obligatory but also heartfelt are pay tweet that I put out after he died Called out that what? I said a virgin. What you just said were like this this. This dude never lost it at all up until the end his you know his most recent album to some of the best shitty ever did and summer's end off. That album is among his very best. So I agree completely. I mean I feel like I'm GonNa take one of the many. He's got so many damn good songs that there's like. I think a lot of mixed would would feel obvious to mind. Thought William might say one of them but outside we mentioned Iris Dement. Saab say inspite of our sales. Yeah it's like such a unique love song but still like such a love song. Gino and it's absolutely like it also. It's a true love song. Love actually is right right. Yes and and like Katie. God bless her. She don't have the best taste in music. Even Katie loves that Song. It's one of those like just connects with people. I think despite the fact that it is so you know like I said singular like. It's not like most songs that you know what I mean sites up like. Oh everybody can dig. That what you're talking about is something that's real like you know mainstream or just the tune or the hook gives timeless in mainstream but like you were mentioned in and then we'll come on earlier choosing to put demand on the track all that made it extra you know. I mean it sounds almost. Sounds like the tune of a kid song but not an annoying. Yeah I agree with that and I was GONNA to say that it was going to be my. I guess a little bit more a deep cut. But it's because I how I relate to personal. I'm sure y'all do too. I've its outside of town. I'M GONNA lose my fucking mind now. It's not it's crazy as alone. Yeah Yeah I love that song. It's because it's like La Man La Nashville and New York City But really it's just about like you know a dreamer or whatever and go under it and how that fails you know what I mean like. This should of making crazy. If you don't watch it you'RE GONNA end up over wrong end of the crazy crazy as alone. I just love that Shit. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA go ahead and say that song is the best industry or whatever you WANNA throw at it creative type song that I know of and I can think of a few top of my head and I don't want to disparage anybody. They're all great but like that one's better a lot of artists make songs and references to Nashville or la being crazy. But that one's good. I Chat Oh go ahead upright yet gum. I'll have gone but I was. I was though you're circling back. But if that's the case you would be up go ahead while one. Yeah I wanted to change mine as I said that I probably would as we're going through and it's not that. I don't believe that Samson might not be the most beautiful in the most meaningful and the most poetic of his songs it it. It's hard to argue but I think the song in my mind like Sandstone doesn't represent crimes cronyism all the way every single thing prins about and I said that. Because there's no point Samson where you laugh which is you shouldn't it's about a soldier coming home and looseness. Goddamn mind like the perfect price on the White Brown. Was He was a dude that was able to make you think laugh cry? Remember all in one fucking song and in my opinion that other side of town does that better than anything Because I mean if lyrics at first it starts off one. Must you always seem to criticize may seem like everything? I do just turns out wrong. Why don't you come on out and despise me so I could pack my bags and baby I'd be gone. Your God Damn Man. This is really fucking going through it. And then he then he says we'RE NOT LINES. Ever a clamp puts his makeup on upside down slowly. Wears a frown. Even wears a smile even when he wears. Brown and then you find out throughout the whole song that he's just explaining to his wife that whenever she's bitch he's actually playing dominoes with his buddies and his brain is just tremendous. I hear that song. I hear that song all the time and I hear that song mainly when amber is sitting air science shit to me and I'm just like I'm doing exactly what he's saying the song it's just so perfect. It's it's cute sadness. Sweidan God damn it. It's just so puck and prime it's It's phenomenal what if you know. Do you know what album. That's off over around the time that he wrote. No I really don't think honestly I WANNA say that that's like a eighties or nineties. Hit for him. That's same lack of one hundred hundred square from two thousand five. Okay what my number two or my one a and it was you know summers in again. I might have some reasons. He by just because it's new and I think it you know is timely in Appropriate but always stop for Utah Cory with the Prime Minister of the Spanish pipedream. So fun in so funny and not sad but I guess real so much realism in there. You know it's like it's fun and Bunny and it's not sad but like you know this do just picked up a girl at a strip club now trying to have some kids in angle make. It's like the Hawaii. Yeah and just what if you followed that song? Not you're doing good right now I'll tell you what you are. I will say to. That's on his first album. A first time that I know of the nineteen seventy one album that Sam stone is on you referenced self titled and Just You know I'm not I don't remember I'm sure there's bigger hits on here but just to give anybody. Who's a prime fan? An idea of your favorite prime songs that are on his first guy. M Allan Elliott Spanish. Pipedream hello in there. Which but Jesus God no. I can't either especially with my grand my relationship with my grandmother. Dude fuck me like just just berry. May I can't hear that song early Lanston as you said and Yeah Ellen nerves in staying paradise your flag decal won't get you into Heaven Anymore. That a version of that point. I've heard made in open mics. In two thousand sixteen like it was new in Nineteen seventy-one. This dude was like fuck the just cause. You put someone your bumper sticker and it goes. This is one of those things. I usually throw hard towards conservatives deservingly so it goes both ways though like you can't enjoy your identity on your bumper sticker and now you're a good part anyway. My man was talking about sorry. I'M GONNA I'm I'm I'm going on a on a prawn. Cheer Rant Angel from Gumri is I did and this is a first light. That's undeniably his most. Like universally six a gay man and you know that actually that song. It's very at the very important song because I don't know if y'all knew this. Jason is bull credits that song as the song that made him realize that you could write songs. That weren't about you. Yeah Hey said he was sitting there and you know he was a twenty something songwriter. Blah Blah Blah and. He was a hard disarm before. But I guess he'd never really liked took it in and he was sitting there and he was like wait a minute. He's not a Goddamn old woman. You know what is on what named after his mother exactly. He's a wait a minute. It doesn't have to be first person. I can just talk and write about whatever wall so you know. There's a lot of if it wasn't for that song. There's a lot of fucking bullshit that you wouldn't wouldn't say also on that album you said. Paradox. That's the first prime song that I've ever heard. And the reason it was the first time ever heard is because that's like one of the most covered songs for like a bluegrass bands play And my dad and his band. That's what they they played paradise and bad would always we're in his jeep? When I was a very very low kid that would be driving down the road like practicing harmony to a recording of paradise by Porn. And so that's the first one ever heard and saw love it so much as does a good memory. Now Yeah it's awesome How `bout we we're not the jet set great. I loved ice on me. Y'All they're all BANGERS fucking James. Ain't went out to Hollywood picture show. Goddamn I love that song. He's got so many songs about La. That I bet he wrote before even fucking went out there because he knows he's smart and aheads. What's I think I'm thinking I'm getting the name wrong? Oh No it's some humans I human. Yeah that one in Life Time. The that's the way the world goes round that's a giant also time like please bury me. That's a good zone that's all that's his best bluegrass sound. In my opinion. I love that song. It's also the one that's closer in philosophy to prop me up the jukebox. Which I feel like should be give give my stomach to Milwaukee if they run on a bare heads send my mouth way down South and kiss my ass. Do So fucking great. You know what my favorite one is. It's great he says D'Amato can have my arm. That's great loan. I really enjoy. Who's GONNA take the garbage out? Damn it God damnit that myself just now but yeah like that one who's GonNa take the garbage out when my bags and down a prison. That's a good point. Six o'clock news was also on that first album. Yeah man again like that first album. You could just repackage. I'm I'm sure they probably did. Actually I've got Prom Brown. Which is the first greatest hits album? He ever put out and I'm fairly certain that like seven of them were just off his first album. Well he did. They'd probably just had to be like. Oh we can't put them all in there because then they'll know what we're doing so give us some other ones well anyway. What else is there to say? Other than it's just a monumental laws fucking sucks but left up themselves going nowhere to main nearly fifty years worth of just what if they did not that would that would suck so sorry? I'm as about the pitcher Black Mirror episode where When you die everything goes really but it takes a little lost. Says that would hit your. It takes a little while like the machine has to get fired up. It takes what it does is it takes away everything but your best contribution to the world on your worst now outweigh the other one. So by any of Y'all watch I did not that yesterday movie now now. It's like the premise of it is something happens in the next day the battles never existed except for one guy remembers all your shit so he starts playing it. Yeah I mean this is very raven but I didn't watch it. 'cause that's the preview and I was like this is so fucking contrived there's a there's a cow was kind of excited about it but it once. I saw by an extra the second trailer came out and I was like Oh right. That's what that is. Okay cool I didn't watch either but you think that when you said that but yeah I don't know Rested recipe's prime. I don't know what else. Yeah yeah well I do. And it's I'll get up soapbox here for a second. I still if you're out there. And you're still not taking the PUCK and social distancing very serious and you're still thinking oh it don't matter if I do this or whatever. Don't do it for yourself. Don't do it for mania by doing Republican John. Franz we don't need John Ron's death being goddamn bind so take it serious and Lysol your shit and sit at home and Jack off and re book note not the Jacket Op Art. But because we all do that but the God not to read a book part now just taken it seriously. Partner Johnson were Hang on Lemme Could look it up but sally younger Tony Boselli from Jacksonville. Jaguars he was horrifying. How finebaum Fuck totten's few times? That's why I remember him right. Yeah his his son now. Plays for Florida State. Something Sally so this kid. Is You know. Twenty twenty one maybe. Twenty two piece your. I'm not sure what you're is. But he just he just had it and was hospitalized with it I think. And and he's fine and everything but he put out this statement about it. That was just saying like you know another thing that I try to get. People take it seriously but he was saying like look. I'm a you know. Twenty one year old collegiate athletes albeit an offensive lineman. So He's a big boy but still grabbed athletic motherfucker and he's like and trust me. I don't care who you are. What shape you're in. You do not want to get this shifts. He was I is. I don't I. It's been downplayed. A lot for young people But you know take it from me. crown virus don't hit basically is what he's always schedule says didn't you right? Yes you have to start thirds. He's young guy but houses surgical. You're saying the twenty two twenty. Something early harness caught college. Athlete is like what that's why I just realized that like when people say young people. I'm not NEDAL. There's no. I'm so glad we got to have this moment on that. That was real bad. Feel bad feeling to have may for real the tray like I know what you and he is trying to say which is like if it gets bad even if you survive it. It's fucking horrendous. And the hospital where you might kill fucking doctor or nurse why. Yeah all right so Moving on in but not from the subject of Death Andy just got back from Walkin mic in the park where no one was at and she social distance. Andy Kamerhe I muted when she got here because I was like. Why are you making so much noise? What's wrong tell the will read nation? Would you tell me our dog? Mick Jagger pulled a gopher out of the ground and flung it across the park and I carried halfway home I wanted to save it and we'll have a beer arms died right in my hand if flicks little allegra before it died. It pro also gave you rabies so you always have. It's not funny. There's some died in your arms. It's just so funny like you thought something else would happen adding and you're you're still there. Yeah I know I just kind of laughed at you but please know that I would literally be falling apart right now so I was just asking. Pickup Dying Gopher. Not Admitting to our waltz wanted to save it. I couldn't deal with not being able to save it. No no dude like again I hit like been driving down. The road sobers judge. You should be when you're driving down the road but like a squirrel and had to pull over and cry and it ruined my whole day like literally running my whole day so I want you to think that my making fun of you with sincere. You did the right thing and I'm sorry gophers but they're so adorable they look like me. There's a there's a over infestation in the park and they are adorable and sincerely. I'm only saying like I'm not making fun of you for Karen I wouldn't tried because I couldn't handle it not trae. We know you would have stepped on the gophers face and Laya. Their dog like well. No but a dog murdered. It gives a five. He would've killed the dog. I thought once I got I couldn't save it in look very like it was dying slowly. Say we would be no. I was going to put it in the freezer to euthanize. What's this is where the fun told you wait? Did you read it on one of those websites that moon decides personality? There's there's this woman who has been as monarch farm them on her phone. She when when monarchs when jazz on that break their wing or something butterflies not kings and Queens Monarch Butterfly so when I hurt get hurt or like break wing. She puts them in the freezer to euthanize. Because it's the fastest matthew four a butterfly tiny like no. They don't have the same central nervous mammal so for further mammals case scenario luckily listen. His horrified had she got to go around. We tried to say that we knew we couldn't. I would not have let her put it in the freezer. But I just I would have had to kill the Goddamn gophers would do. Yeah I just I just imagined saying where Andy got the gopher home and it was bleeding and she put it down in her. Jury were sitting there arguing. She's like I did the right thing. I was going to try to save at Houston. Is it in the Free Freezer? Like what kind of bucket witch doctor told you that Horse Shit? After about five minutes then arguing you just hear the tiniest still kick over and look back in the gopher had hung itself I kinda wanted to save the Gopher and then have a pet. Gopher will corey before we timing. I'm getting a pet gopher. I WanNa say that joke was a lot like my suicide. It took a long time to get there but it was satisfying. Thank you know we would not have had a pet gopher but also freezing mammals cannot be the most humane relentless focus on that. Yeah I believe you and I respect you. It's just how would it done what drew I would've done what drew did thinking. I know goodwill I won't be able to save it and then I'll be like freaking out and I'll be like I really. In the middle of social distancing GONNA call and wrist. All this shit over Gopher. I'd had just leave it or stop. Its head and put them Abbas misery.

I did get to magnetic thing like the Wu. Why a main. We got a little bit of time for jobs to go. Put that Dick into motion but So I may I guess we should probably talk about the elephant rat the so peyton Jewish elephant new rumor. Now Yeah I got another In addition to one of my songwriting. Idols dying I got another birthday present with Bernie. Sanders dropped out of the rice. Although this one was a admit more expected I say more expected. I didn't expect it like when it happened. Necessarily I felt like it kind of came out of nowhere. But maybe that's me I don't know but it did happen and salts go ahead you asking what we thought when it happened. Or what do we think about it? Overall is just the whole situation. I've just doing a poor job of Tang that it happens but yeah I think we should star trae sincerely from your take and your tweet. 'cause I generally agree with okay? Here's what I a tweeted. After it happened I said this is all completely true. I said I voted for. I voted for Barney in two thousand sixteen and this year. But if you think that I am not now remaining post him dropping out I'm not now one hundred percent pro Jo till they bury me and may you're just different kinds of liberals gas an imprint? Say they'll say on. The topic wants to win. So yeah I agree with that you have more to say I don't know why honestly I WANNA get out of the fridge. But it's way over the bear fruit your ass over. I mean you know Kinda got we're talking about. Oh God dammit man Dude So this is about to sound Super Raven but I've been like firing off some pretty sweet Bart's and every single time I've held my phone up to my but thinking that would work but I've got the fucking ear but the the microphone is on my ear buds on your ear. But you're gonNA give yourself pink mouth and after. I think I'm too far. Pinky young boys here lords out a farce. I'm just saying I've been popping off some really good when I don't think I have any laughed. Sound like like parts. I have left our lack. The you know danger danger danger farts the ones right before it's over. Oh I'm back with Bayer now and yeah I okay. Here's vice. The House bill about it I just look again. How a Bernie? Supporters are voting for Bernie was my guy. I made a video. I made a video before Super Tuesday. Because that's when everything changed I might videos before Super Tuesday. That was saying basically the thrust of it was look. Y'All it's looking like Bernie is GonNa win as we all need to get with that. Hey get over it and get ready to vote for this motherfucker in November because this is going to be our dude and it was directed at the more like moderate Democrats or whatever who who were comfortable with Barney because I thought he was going to win at the time so i. It's so hard to say anything in the contrary about this because people immediately just like I don't know Jump to conclusions. And I'm trying to give the disclaimer of Science Allah Bernie and Bernie to win but warn. But he didn't he can sated. It is our Joe. Biden is the nominee and basically for me fundamentally all it comes down to all the shit about the DNC and all that. There's valid arguments there. I understand why people are pissed off. I really do but for for me. It comes down to one bottom floor fundamental thing we have got to legitimate choices November and one of them is Donald fucking trump. And I don't I really don't give a fuck what you say or what you think about Joe Biden. I really don't well. I don't know how you could ever convince me that. He is a worse option than Donald Trump. And yes. I'm sorry if you self identify someone on the left. If you've been a libertarian. Yourself your whole life. That's different but if you call yourself. Democrat or liberal or any of that at all and you can you don't vote for Joe Biden November. Were thank you are complicit in Donald Trump may be winning again and that's the single greatest crime any as commit and you'll never convince me otherwise. I just thought I'll hear it also. Listen that's pretty much all it'll it'll be pretty much have to say on the subject and then I know drew's got a lot which I can't wait to hear Basically it's this Yeah I was Barney. Got To really liked Bernie. I Like Elizabeth Warren. But she was out and now Bernie's out and to me. This isn't like when you're watching college football and Georgia doesn't make it up to the championship. So you're like well I don't give a fuck who wins the championship. Because my person Ain't in there that is not this. This is not that like everything trade just said at one hundred percent true and to piggyback on top of that let's just say hypothetically you don't like Joe Biden what you're voting for. November is so much more than that. Because it's fucking Ruth Bader Ginsburg replacements are. It's the entire cabinet is fucking every single other thing that that because of Donald Trump has happened not just directly as him being president and his his pen to paper but all the other fundamental things that have kind of you know waved their way through the fucking country since he got elected because of trumpism. You're voting to get that shit. The puck out. It's Joe the best. No you like everything he says. No but at the end of the day dude four more years of trump is just so it's so much insanely worse than any alternative that I can think of in. Yeah if you don't agree with that you're you're fucking more fuckers trying to shut down the US Postal Service right as we speak do like we cannot have four more years of this. We can't I know. Joe is a fucking neo liberal. He loves the banks and all that shit or whatever but like we cannot have this for Hans like existential crisis. I really feel that way. Yeah I mean just mo Jo in an AP stocks You know a moderate fucking Republicans obeyed is asking for years. And then it'll start getting real wonky but like. Yeah Dude. I don't I don't see how four years of do you think Donald Trump don't give up now son right when I main like imagine imagine if this Cobra virus had happened in his fucking lame duck years imagine he wins in November. That's and and fucking January of next year with wind fucking by restarted. Son like him and he was. He was so care about approval ratings. I think yeah. I guess you're right but I'm saying what we're seeing right now is how he's handling it trying to get elected. I agree with that You guys done yeah. I don't know if this is GonNa take like GonNa take like a minute or like another hour. Narrow go ahead. Do you think a have interacted with mostly online but in person To a lot of people on the left on the farther left last two three years part of that is our platforms. Introduced me to people Li Bank I'll go ahead. And say was a big part of introduced me to a lot of these people both literally in terms of him literally introducing me and then also just following him and following people who tweet ham or whatever the saying is My interaction with the far left in this country the Democratic Socialist and other folks has been mostly positive and hope inducing Their mantra is not me US Just one just one little example and this is anecdotal. Doesn't prove anything but this is just one example. I went to hear gas. Speak who was running for Senator In the Knoxville area for state Senator And Nazis had shut him down a few times literal Nazis Literal Neo Nazis and the ANTIFA as they're called Prevented that from happening. By the time I went so that we could hear him speak and up until that point all heard about Antifa was that they're just as bad as the Neo Nazis. And I you know I I. Don't I gotTA BE HONEST? I don't know what I do. Know is that that day about kids who look got sickle cell or some Shit Bandanas on their face before the Cobra virus. Were right around on bicycles telling me everyone else will fight those neo-nazis if we have to and I was like well I appreciate these kids being here First of all let me say I should have started with this. I agree with almost everything you said. Trae I think except for the last part I'm definitely going to over Joe Biden. There's no universe where I won't upset for a long time. I'll vote for literal sweet potato but some of those people. I just brought up the left. They were never ever GonNa vote for Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. They were either too extreme already or they got brought into the political world and politics in general by the work. Some of those extreme people did now. That doesn't make it okay that they don't WanNa vote for Joe Biden over Donald Trump. You're still allowed to be mad at them. And by you I mean you trade but I mean anyone out there listening if you think that's stupid if you if you say to them that selfish that's wrong or whatever that's fine but frame it appropriately and what I mean by. That is understand that they only were ever. GonNa vote for Bernie and boom. That's not taking their ball and going home. That this wasn't my ballgame act came. A new guy invited me and now I'm going back to the house because I have never in my life thought the American political system was for me. And what Bernie. One thing I liked about Bernie was he was bringing those folks and so for me to be like. We'RE GONNA lose the election because these people who've never voted aren't GonNa vote. What's like wait? What they've never voted. They've only ever voted in a primary four Bernie Sanders. They're not the missing but's that's not. Why Democrats are losing in my opinion. It's still okay to be mad at those people. And here's why here's my big disappointment? Interacting with the left over the last three years and by the left I mean the far left the left side of our Party they seemingly and I've talked to some friends of mine. Brennan Gallagher the rider out here. Who have talked about it and he tells me I'm wrong that I have to go to more meetings and stuff and I'm sure that's true but if you look at their mainstream dig Dog Media Chapo Trap House comes to mind. Frankly the truly worker party out of Kentucky who I love and I plugged them here before. Come to mind They don't seem to hold the court in as much of a level of importance as I do. Perhaps I'm biased. Because of law school training but I have been surprised to learn how and I'm not talking about true beliefs necessarily here because I know them personally but when I go to meetings in La. I'm surprised to learn about how little people India say out here. Sometimes know about the courts. Now that's a failure of our fucking school systems for sure but you should vote for Joe Biden simply because of Ruth Bader Ginsburg like. That's literally true and I think very online leftists here that and they kind of recoil because they've seen these are BG t shirts that are super cool and they associate that with this sort of yes queen leftism where it's like identity politics where someone's like. I'm pro women in the new talk to them about what they mean. And they're like and that's why I'm voting for Joe Biden and they fairly go you know. I'm not sure he's the most pro-women candidate but it's like okay. Maybe that person you talk to has shallow politics but the truth is the courts in this system are very important and it's not just the Supreme Court it's also the large swath swath. What the fuck is at word? Trae help me out. Loss of Republican federal judges that trump has already put into place at the appeals level. That are literally just appointed by the executive branch. Now do I think that Joe Biden is going to appoint people that these leftist? I'm talking about love. No He's not and to be fair to some of the people I've talked to. It's not been all of them. They know very well about it. They're very informed and also to be fair to some of the people I'm talking about. They're gonNA vote for Joe Biden Where I disagree I think with you trade is. I don't think we can lay if he loses this loss at all those people's feet number one a lot of those people like I said earlier have never voted for a Democrat. They're not taking their ball and going home To some of them are taken their ball and going home and I will tell them to not do that. I will continually tell them to not do that. I'M NOT GONNA make phone calls for Joe Biden. I don't think I mean hell am I but I'm not excited about him but I will tell us people. Don't take your fucking ball. Ango home but if they decide that the neoliberal pro bank candidate the Joe Biden is who's also prison industrial complex who also inks has increased crime bills who also is pretty credibly accused of sexual harassment. Not Right I'll I'll acknowledge Sexual harassment if they say I'm not voting for that guy because I can't you know I'm not gonNa vote for trump. I'll say to them. That's kind of a vote for trump depending on what state you live in but not say to them. It's your fault that we lose when we perhaps should have done better number one number two and this is the part where we might have some back and forth and I welcome it. It's on Joe Biden now to get some of them there. I know that the stereotype is that. There's all these toxic Bernie supporters and. That's like anything else man being from the South Trae in Corey. Tell me you can't understand what it's like to be judged by the loudest most ignorant of your people. Yeah absolutely a quick. Psi here since you brought it up. Korea's no longer with us He's not dead Or at least not yet. It's a joke helping regret my concordat drop out. Because I guess the weather has gotten so bad they got another a tornado warning and he said they gotta shelter in place so our prayers up for everybody who check them up but eight. Obviously trying to put a farther damper on this. But that's just what happened. Corey had to go so just being you now but he knows we are. We're going to continue and I'm going to send him biles you know I'm sure but anyways not but anyway that that being said yes one hundred percent and I and I told you before and I can't even upset it on here not but like like opposite have said you multiple times before like man I gotta get the fuck off. Read it because like the because read it were Bernie. Sanders is concerned. Do It is the is the epicenter of this version of Bernie support. You're talking about and they don't give give Bernie supporters bad name and it's like I made fellow Bernie supporter and I go on Reddit and break their shit and it. It upsets me. You know what I mean. I'm not I'm not saying those people don't exist and I'm also going now. I probably have a lower threshold than you in terms of what would offend me that they might do and I know that we have listeners out there who have even lower threshold than me because in their mind. We're fighting for health care and for people who are poor to have a fucking chance and so people's labs are on the line so I don't give a fuck if you're offended at my online thing and I get them not giving a fuck but I want them to understand that. It's not helpful. I do but my point is that shaming. Those people won't work it won't bring them into the fold and my second point and this is what I think is important right now. I am sick and tired of reading on the Internet Bernie Sanders supporters. Grow Up Blah Blah Blah support. Joe Biden. Here's what I would like. I would like Joe Biden and his top line supporters to grow up and I mean that and not just as a way of critiquing guy who now we all need to get behind. I'm behind him. I am a want him to win. And I'm going to vote for him. I want him to appeal to people. I have seen no less than ten clips of Joe Biding telling people to go vote for Donald Trump. Who weren't there to troll him. Who weren't there to tell him. They were Republican and in this country. Who were there to challenge him on issues and he would call him a Bernie Bro and then tell them to go. Vote for trump. Now I know that that excites some people in his base. Because they're sick of Bernie. Brothers Bernard brothers as we like to be called when we're being Professional I get that. I sincerely empathize with your emotion. I am the fuck and King of being fucking self indignant. You know self righteous indignation. Are You shitting me? I was a public defender and now I'm a comedian. That's been quite literally my job my whole adult life. I hear you but I have to throw it back to you. Trae do you WanNa be right or do you WANNA win. Joe Biden is not gaining any more votes by ignoring or antagonizing the Progressive Wing of the Party and neither are his supporters. You guys warn centrist Democrats warn the primary and you should be trying to reach out to these people and if they're rude new you should try to reach out further. 'cause they're engaging and another thing. I'll let you know. Is that if you are engaging with these people and they keep being rude to you and you keep being nice. There are people watching. Who did like Bernie? And they're coming around your side when you do that. When you engage with these admittedly existed. Asshole Bernie rose and you're polite and your Referencing facts and you're saying you know what some things he could be better on. But here's why like him. People are listening. That's how you in boats to Joe Biden's credit. His campaign has shifted a little at least from what I've seen Not Enough for me in terms of what I want but enough for me to go the dude trying to fuck and win. Do you know what I mean by that. Yeah yeah but I mean I think I was listening what I mean by that is. I'm still not in love with his policies but I'm in love with the fact that Joe Biden seems to be serious about winning and engaging. He stopped picking on young people. He used to make fun of young people. I guess to get the older vote. Maybe he was trying to win the primary thing people ask if you should on young people. That's fine dude shit on them but now he's trying to win them over. I like that I dig it. I'm in yeah now. I agree with all that the Here's the thing first of all. I think you're very right. And I think that it bears repeating and bears pointing out the thing about this is not them taking their ball and going home. This these are people who never intended to play in the first place and only considered it because of this guy and now this guy has gone. They're back out again. I think that when it comes to the like stereotypical Barney Bros. Whatever the toxic members that you're talking about the people think of I think that that is largely true for most of them and so that further makes me think that it goes back to this electability argument that depending on what what section of the Internet you're trafficking in you see different versions of it and what I made is again. I keep saying I get alpha. Read it when it comes to politics there during the primaries for a long time they had this whole. They're really pushing us all argument. About how much more electable Bernie was versus. Joe Biden in the thing is i. I saw a lot of validity. Validity that for me because of the midterms where you had like Candidates like Phil Bernson Tennessee like tried to toe that line and be this really really moderate Democrat and got his ass blasted in our riot. Tweeted midterm something. Like if if there's one thing up our bid towns is that you can't be half liberal use the gotta go go big or go home or it ain't going to work and I felt like that was kind of a message that the midterms sent but having said that like now we're the general election for president and I just. I'm from the South and I know a lot of other southern Democrats and I made present day southern Democrats not the classical definition of southern Democrats. And I've had so many of them say to me some version of like dude light sincerely for me a lot of people that I know back home that are Democrat. I mean my sister. My Wife's multiple friends of mine said things to the effect of it during the primary. Like I I love Bernie. I don't know that I can vote for Bernie though because I just can't see him winding and bide nothing is our best chance to beat trump and like with my wife in particular. We live in California now so she voted for Barney. I don't know for sure who my sister voted for. And that's not a cop out. I don't know she'd sent me this existential question. I don't know what to do. And I told her that. Asset at thought. She should vote for you. Know what whoever heart said. Which was Barney? But I don't know who she actually voted for. But my my point is I know why these people feel that way is because I feel like if you're if you're a Democrat from the south you you think of like what is more untenable to more people and it's like on the Internet on read. It is like Joe. Biden is as untenable as donald trump is by mile but just like your average day to day person throughout our in across most of America for Democrats it's like it's voting for a guy who represents the establishment but the establishment represented by fucking Obama and Bill Clinton. And you could shit out both of them if you want to but they both represent colossal upgrades from Donald trump bright. And you've got Joe Biden. Who's an analog to that versus a guy who a lot of people vary aronie Asli and very stupidly but still that a lot of people look at as like fucking socialist radical like a straight up communist basically right but that's absurd and I don't like I understand why people feel that what so I've always thought? The electability argument was weird. Because even though I was pro Barney I always kind of like I. Don't I don't see how Barney is considered more electable? Because the only people he's bringing to the table are the people you're talking about. Who are not part of the classic electorate in the first place but you have to keep the electorate and hopefully bring in a couple more new people. But if you're losing weight is it worth losing a big chunk of the classic electorates to Brian? With these new represented people like how stats? Why WOULD WE LOSE? The people who right now are screaming vote blue. No matter who I mean the idea was Bernie would bring in these new voters and everyone else would grit their teeth and vote for him if he became the nominee. But he didn't so you and I can argue electability all night long and if I seemingly brought that up I didn't mean to it's over Bernie's out and it's by so the electability of Bernie Sanders is moot to me. Would at this point at this point the conversation is about two things. If I'm talking to people who are thinking about not voting for Joe Biden because they have a problem with him and I'm trying to convince him to vote for Joe Biden just so donald trump doesn't man what's my case a the second relevant point is. What is Joe Biden doing to do that? If I'm out here doing it on my podcast if I guy who supports Bernie Sanders and sports policies and thanks Joe. Biden's policies are joke also. I'm not even sure what his policies are. Frankly if I'm out here and that's how I feel but I'm still trying to get people to vote for because I think he's GonNa be way better than on trump and I do acknowledge that the that's the first issue to talk about. How do we do that? How do we convince them? But I think to me the second and to me more important issue is what is bad. Need to do to help that and I have been pleasantly surprised by some of his terms. I've been disappointed in some of his turns if I'm Frank But but that's just me you know that's won't let let me ask you this as far as that goes and I'm genuinely just asking a question here like when it comes to Joe Biden in this whole dynamic that we're talking about do you think that there's because I imagine I don't know but I imagine what's going on at Biden headquarters is a conversation about. Yes we can court those hard core Bernie people on far-left we can go out of our way to to appeal to them but in doing so we might lose some of the appeal that we had to some of the people more towards the center because another thing that was part of part of that equation. I mentioned a minute ago. People from south that I didn't explicitly say at the time was that Katy page other people have both said to me like they know they know. Republicans Lifelong Republicans most of them younger Republicans. Who Don't like Donald Trump right. Who would some of whom and I know? Some PEOPLE PARSLEY. Some of them had sad and this is anecdotal. Admittedly Asama said like they could see themselves voting for Joe Biden. But these people that I'm talking about is like moderate Republicans would never emission vote for Bernie Sanders right. And I do think around. But again this is moot and I'm not like I don't want to go. Oh but it's not because you're you're talking about Joe Biden courting you're talking about what can Joe Biden due to appeal to these people? You think he can win Republicans. You really believe that I think that there are. I believe and again anecdotal. I know some personally who at the very least will sit there. Asset how if it's donald trump versus Joe Biden who if it's donald trump versus Bernie Sanders will go vote for Donald Trump because they're more scared Bernie Sanders Young. Just stay. Those people exist AC-. Yeah he's not ever. GonNa win the State of Tennessee. I know but there are but I'm the south is not a monetary. But I'm not now I deserve some. There's some southern states that are that are up for grabs. I think these people are real like civil. What's your point that if he reaches out to the Progressive Wing of the Party? That will go away. I think it's a conversation you'd have to have if you're Joe Biden or if you're in if you're but is he a Democrat or a Republican. So you're saying I mean what are you saying? Because I've expressed the the the point that it's moot. What would happen Biden Versus Bernie? But you'd think what you're saying now is it Biden courts progressive ideals too much. He will lose these now. Okay actually what I said was. I don't know if I said I'm literally just posing a question here and the question I was trying to pose is how much of that do you consider which is what you're talking about right now. I'm not saying I think he shouldn't do it. I'm saying do you not think that's part of the conversation that they are having but I got I got two or three? I got so many ways to answer that because there's the context of our conversation and then there's the context of the national question. Which is I think what you mean so in terms of literally should biden. Think about that. I guess you mean in order to win Like to to him the the idea of going out of your way to like hard core. Woo The the lost voters that Barney had. That are GonNa you know. I don't pay at home because of it trying to get those people versus losing even just the people who don't vote for him but who might not vote for trump if it is him no longer calling young people with three jobs. Yes millennials lazy artery. Going out of his way I agree. I don't think that explaining and being honest about how medical system in this country is fucked up is going out of his way. I if he does those things and loses these former trump voters or they decide to go. Vote for trump. Then I just right now. It's like is he a thing. I think we're mostly I think we're actually mostly young signed page. I think what he needs to do drag his platform a little further to the left to In pursuit of this exact thing but not to the extent of just like trying to become the Barney campaign or anything like that which was obviously never gonNa do but I think that adopting some of these policies as his official campaign platform a is. What logically should happen honestly. I think it's what I think. It's I think he will do that. I mean I think that that will happen. Here's what I know but I'm not convinced that these people that we're talking about on the far left. I'm not convinced that that that that will be enough for them. I'm not either at all now. Now I go back to the conversation of are are we talking about in the context of the national thing or mind your conversation. I'm not sure it'll be enough for them either. But it's bullshit to me if he doesn't do any of that to then just lay all the blame at these supposed non-voter feet by the way I've never met. I've heard people talk about online. I've never met a single Bernie sponsor from two thousand sixteen didn't vote for Hillary Clinton just by the way not saying they don't exist. I've never met a single person who voted for Jill Stein. Outside of the State of Tennessee who clearly trump is going to win. So what I'm getting at. Is the Straw Man Bullshit? Excuse for losing Wisconsin Minnesota Michigan Georgia to certain extent North Carolina. Pennsylvania Florida these fucking swing states Ohio. I don't know the answer. I mean that's just me being honest ask you this John. I don't know if staying the course going back to your your the people you're talking about. Who Trump who would stay there. S home if it was Joe Biden. I don't know if that would work there. I don't know of leading further left would work there. Here's what I do know If he stays the course door skews more towards the centre or right in order to hopefully gain people who voted for trump or. Keep them home and in doing so loses people on the far left and then blames them for it but that to me not not just like morally fucked at. What's Deng it's no? I agree with you that would that would that would look. He is not if he any point tries to like acquaint himself with Donald Trump's philosophies explicitly as an attempt to court battles people. That's a colossal mistake. The bet the number one best thing he can do is to hammer home the fact that Donald Trump is the untenable alternative. Which I feel like he's got to do that but what I was going to ask. You is Shit now forgotten just zagging. Oh Okay yes all right so do you all right all those that narrative of you're talking about if they they're gonNA sit there and blame all these people for them not win. That's fucking bullshit right and and and I agree with you. I think there's a difference ethic it's that you know lack it or not. It's just the reality and it's misogyny or is just history or whatever you WANNA call it but Hillary Hillary had added element of this taste and this lie amongst a huge segment of the American population in two thousand sixteen. And I think that contributed because what really happened. What I feel like what most most the data has shown Saints Twenty. Sixteen is that sure trump you know he mobilized rural America and all that Shit. Whatever but what really happened was people who came out for. Obama didn't come out for Hillary like Democrats didn't come out in the numbers I did and part of that narrative was yeah well it was people who WanNa Bernie and we're comfortable staying at home but I think large part of it is just there. Were just hillary just had this thing about her you know again her vagina her last name or a combination of the two versus. You know her record as I politician up until that point all of the above it led to people staying at home right and I don't think that in the in the majority of the democratic electorate that same stigma or whatever exists for Joe Biden Rights. I think it's a different demographic the Democratic Party that it exists four. I shouldn't say Democratic Party. I mean we're really not talking about the Democratic Party if you stay home because you don't like Hillary Clinton or because she has a vagina. You Not really in the Democratic Party you sometimes vote. Democrat sometimes sometimes vote and when you do it's democratic. Yeah I totally imagine. Large group large percentage of that group votes for Biden but I could also imagine a large percentage of different groups not voting for Biden for other reasons. I mean he's been on TV. I think twice during this whole lockdown I think people are generally starting to wonder what's wrong with him a B. I can't name a single policy of his. I'm not saying he doesn't have him. I I know he just said he was gonNA lower Medicare to sixty and forgive student loans for lower middle income students which he hasn't defined. That's brand new. And that's the first thing that sorta Bernie latched onto which is probably why I know about it. I don't know what his policies and I'm not saying that again. I'm not trying to insult the guy who's running. I'm trying to say I do think we're going to have problem with a man. That's my opinion. That's not you know people are gonNA per Canada. Another reason Bernie Spurs are going to stay home as they feel like he was railroaded by the DNC certain extent the liberal media and depending on which Burns Puerto. You're talking to is what level they thanked at the happened the level that I think it happened. I don't think it was a conspiracy. I don't think I mean were there meetings yet. There's always meetings. It's politics how politics works is meetings You know you call that a conspiracy. I call it politics. That's how it works. Bernie was going to have to defeat that he didn't he lost. That's where we're at so assay to those people and I know we've been long winded here. I said of those people not me us. I mean that sincerely without any judgment I have empathy for working people. This is the only candidate they ever believed in. I have empathy for grocery store workers. Relax Bernie Sanders is the only person who's ever talked about my life. And honestly I've empathy for people who had people die of cancer and then they went bankrupt right after and Bernie Sanders is the only major presidential candidate who had a fucking plan. That would actually help them. And to a certain extent Elizabeth Warren Recipes I'm attached with you. But it was not me. Us and US includes people who will be so detrimentally affected by four more years of Donald Trump via the court system. And is that a winning argument. No it's not what I want. Joe Biden to run on. He better not campaign on. I'll help the courts. He fucking better have better ideas in that. But I hope it's enough to sway enough people. I hope you will remember that. Not Me US includes women who want abortions for variety of reasons and it's going to be harder to get them if they keep stacking the courts with Republican judges People who get arrested for drug charges. fucking. Yeah Gay and Trans American citizens and I know. I know you're sitting there going. So you want me to vote for the guy who is accused of sexual assault because of women and the fucking shitty horrible. Maybe you're right we do need. A revolutionary answer is yeah. That's where we're at a gun and I'm not saying that FBI. I'm not saying literally go get your gun. And making a hypothetical scenario where those literally choices right now And then the second thing I'll say though to Joe Biden supporters or just people who want Democrats to win is you have been saying to Bernie Bros. for fucking months. You've said it to me you've said it to me. Is this the best way to get people to vote for your candidate? And I've been fucking Nice especially by my standards. You've said to me. Well I just feel like his supporters of the reason you've said online why I'm just not sure I could. Bovril candidate who supporters does seem to give a shit about me. It's your time and it's Joe Biden's time to be everybody's candidate Yup. I agree completely. I have nothing else to add to that. I think we should wrap up at this point. Is You said Baiba Plan? I wish you'd wrapped up because I only went to another room after cooking. And she does those things rest in pace gopher screamed fuck you not use. You didn't hear what you said. Well y'all very much we'll see you next week. Steve Scheme Hotel. Thank you all for listening to the well read show. We love to stick around longer but we got to go tune in next week. If you've got nothing to do which is shit ton of lightly. Thank you God. Bless you good nine inch keys you.

Biden going to GA is a double edged sword? Govt wants to pay people to take the vaccine?

"Most cash offer companies. Pay cash for homes have stopped providing cash offers. So if you need a cash offer on your home and need a quick sale call. Carol royse right now. Carol royse with keller williams realty east valley. your valley-wide team is still offering great cash. Offers to homeowners who need them. Don't hesitate call. Carol royse right now at eight. Oh seven seven. Six fifty two thirty one or go to carol has the cash offers dot com. That's carol has the cash offers dot com devil down to georgia. Beats up both johnny ways. A gentlemen children of all ages soon to kind of serve at as s t harris. You probably familiar with charlie daniels song your little johnny playing for a soul. The devil thought that he he. He beat him in a duel. A violin do famous song. They it's kind of coming into play right now. We're watching only it's. It's still bizarre because it it involves joe biden. Joe biden went down to georgia to campaign for the two democrats in the in the senate runoff. And you would think that somebody who had eight million votes so one who won in a landslide would be able to rally the troops would be able to to have the masses. Come out and support him. I'm wondering what's going on. Am one was going on with the media with the democrats. Why they think they're going to be able to pull off this fraud. I'm not even talking about whether or not biden's being sworn in or not. I'm talking about being able to to govern in the face of such hypocrisy in the face of such fraud even on fox news you had bret baier. He was talking about. How sending bite into georgia is sort of a double edged sword for democrats. Yeah it's a double edged sword definitely good afternoon. I think you're right. I mean if he goes down really the democrats need to fire up the left base To get them out to vote. And i'm not sure joe biden. Does that on the flip side. He reminds people bhai going down there. That if he's successful and both of those democrats win it is a senate majority leader. Chuck schumer a head of the banking committee Banking committee chairman bernie sanders. And i think it brings all of that up. Remember that this runoff. It could be a different thing but those republicans were leading even though they didn't get to fifty percent in both of them. Kelly leffler if you add up all the republicans in that race. The republicans were a david. Purdue was leading and the question is whether all of the republicans come out on january fifth To support this run off race. That's what he would have boiled down to the double edged sword triple edged sword. You're sending joe biden down there going to be a constant reminder of how radical the left is because of who is supposed to be campaigning for. There's also this sending. Joe biden down and having him have a rally also shows you that he has no coattails he stole the coat. No co tells because the democrats were absolutely decimated down ticket. This to me is further evidence of the fraud of the theft. I know we're not supposed to be talking about that right now. We're supposed to be saying A president-elect biden but it's still just a if too far of a stretch in many people's minds last night we watched biden some of us. And if you watch them online he only had like about forty five fifty thousand people watching that all line it at the event i kid you not. I don't think they were one hundred people there. I don't think there were fifty people there once again. What are we get. We get the betide camera. You get the tight camera shots. They don't show you the crowd. You only see images of the crowd. You're on social media and some of those pictures were able to slip through. But they're really. You had a couple of cars there and a couple of people. I would say probably media. Outnumbered the people that were there to support joe biden stumping for the democrats in the runoff. Harm for your. Next united states china. Jonah even pronounce his name. Right biden is a nightmare. He is a nightmare if he were to serve for years. But there's now mounting Evidence rumors chatter that the long knives are coming out for biden as well. Why because everyone knows that he's a placeholder when you look at the events of the last few days it's stunning all of a sudden you have barack hussein obama. Back on the scene pontificating about policy. We'll talk about that later. This hour all of a sudden you have a the you'd the republicans the establishment republicans in the final but trails stabbing president trump in the back. We'll talk about mitch mcconnell on the show today but most of all you have the left and the media just sticking biden and sticking these policies in your face daring you to say that this is not the president elect. You've got joe biden now hooking up with his old buddy mitch mcconnell. 'cause you know once you get to a certain level. It's a unit party. It's not a two party system. They're all buddies because they've been there forever. I drink the stars. Calm of thank you for the congratulations bowling. Always just lots of things. We can work together on board one. Another and We agreed we get together later. When i'm looking forward to working with the focus. Yeah he spoke with them. And mitch. Mcconnell and the media want you to know that they spoke to mitch mcconnell mitch. Mcconnell call them president-elect and congratulated him and kamala harris and that was a gut punch to the trump supporters out. There who are still holding out who still have hope. It's amazing what we're watching on the ground level. You still have republicans that are turning over evidence turning over massive amounts of fraud but we have the media that is out there lying about the electoral college. And i'm not talking about just the national media. I'm talking about the local media. So we where you get. Your information from is very important. And i don't know if our local media is just stupid a propagandist lying to the to the the good people of arizona on purpose but it needs to be called out nets. Exactly what i'm going to do a six eighteen. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am ringmaster. james t harris. I'll tell you what greatest christmas album of all time. The vandrau's we are man. Christmas is coming up. Quick isn't it. It is and yet we have all of this political turmoil. Will we be able to shut it off. Well how the versus we have to do is stop looking at the local news. Outlets this week. Arizona's journalists expose themselves for the frauds that they are ignoring history and precedent called the republicans move to send a republican electors to the electoral college. Insane crazy one. Journalist bram resnick went so far is to call it a clown coup. What really disturbs me is how how the media have absolutely willfully ignored the very real cool. That's been going on for the last four years and it's going on right now so when you have people trying to rectify that when you have people actually trying to use the constitution everything that has been done. Thus far has been constitutional. You'll get journalists out there that come out and call it the direct opposite. They call it a coup either. These journalists don't know history american history or wait for it. They're not journalists. The truth of the matter is i don't think the journalists but they are writing the very new using that my fingers news that arizona relies on they rely on the news to make decisions and because of their incredible bias and arrogance a considerable number of arizona's cast their ballots for joe biden. Why because of the news of course president trump was very successful in calling this fake news. Because that's what it is and at first that bothered these so-called journalist as kept reporting in that very biased way. It just became obvious. There is absolutely when we're talking about the print media and television media in this town. There's nobody who leans right. There's no conservatives of course if you were you couldn't say so you gotta keep it under wraps but if you're a liberal you can let your bias flow and you have the protection of all. the other. so-called liberal journalists should say so called journalists they're liberal pundits you have their i contend that it was not enough votes and that biden did not win in arizona. But he did well. And there's no way that that that doddering old fool should have earned any votes given that we know about his radical plans and his limited cognitive ability. We'd know about the fraud and corruption of his family. Even though the national mainstream tried to shut it down and sensor anybody who talked about it on social media again we have a corrupt in comical media and it is killing our country from serious. Doing that thing with my fingers again from serious journalists like how he fisher to to bram resnick. Our media is uncontrollably. Partisan they are incapable of seeing that they are not objective completely incapable of seeing that they are nothing other than pundits with notepads. What has me really concerned really worry. Is that our system relies on the fourth estate. Our republic relies on an honest objective media to keep the powers that be in check instead. They are running defense into fairest for those powers. Look around see what their narrative is doing to us. They like government. Workers have jobs as they push for further lockdowns. They don't suffer from. Our small businesses are small business owners. Do they like politicians had become the cocktail class as long as they get the right invites to the right politically correct. Currently socially distant in-person zone parties will continue to be unable to see what their dishonesty is doing to the rest of us. This is why. I say we gotta turn them off. Be after block them. We have to stop feeding that beast because at beasts is trying to kill our way of life. What did the eighty. Gop did by sending alternative slate to the electoral college has been done in the past. This is only the first time it's been called a coup. We will see what comes of it. But that's only if the media reports it we've seen the coverage. Eric swat well. You know who's sleeping around with chinese spies. We've seen the coverage of hunter biden. Actually we haven't zilch cover these one more piece of advice every time you see their headlines in the future ask yourself. Why am i seeing this. What am i not seeing the republicans decision to send an alternative slate. What's that clown coup. No hardly that is simply the judgment of a prolific. Talking about resnick was happening out. There is crazy. Have you noticed. Obama is fully back on the scene. He is going to be in the ear of of either biden or kamala harris as he said in his platform is going to be comedy central. We'll talk about this at six thirty. Three sean hannity works every day to make america great again. Listen at one on five fifty k. Of why i and on fm five hd two allan. you are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster. James t harris yesterday. My smoking hot wife walked up to me and she was a little bit exasperated she said is the whole government in on this everybody in on this of course her frustration was because we have so many outlets and they're all being shut down across the states. You can watch the meeting. They say yo. Th this is the trump's fifth hundred dry and has been rejected. You have biden other saying the same thing everybody saying the same thing but then all of a sudden like rubbing salt in the wound. here comes barack hussein obama. We haven't heard from barack hussein. Obama years we were supposed to have. He's supposed to be out in front. Leading a couple of initiatives he didn't even bother endorsing. Joe biden. we're learning so much stuff behind the scenes. How things are working. So much information is being revealed and we're finding out that too that the there's no recourse. There's there's no courts is the whole thing. corrupt it. What are the things we know for sure is that the media is the entertainment media. The news media during the obama administration a lot of the people who supported obama especially the younger set. They got their news and information from comedy. Central comedy central that. I think that was what was his name. Stewart john stewart john stewart was on comedy central's matter of fact when he left. He handed the reins over to trevor noah who happens to be a south african individual particularly unfunny but he took over the reins and you saw viewership ratings for comedy central sink. But it's not about ratings is about having a vehicle to push the propaganda out. I knew something was up when g. q. Magazine made Made trevor noah. I believe it was newsman of the year a comedian because all of our news anchors have morphed into celebrities and celebrities are more fringe into news. Anchors it's all the same thing orange man bad get trump but now that the left thinks that they have vanquished president trump from the land. There ushering again. Barack hussein obama and he's making more and more appearances and the objective. Here i think is to begin to reclaim territory that was lost or destroyed under the trump administration as a matter of fact. Trevor noah was asking barack hussein obama about that very thing mitigate some of the damage that's been done but i can't reverse it you ever did you ever envy though like trump just came in and basically broke though because i mean he didn't care no i envy it because i do care and i do not think that is an option to simply pretend that that the legacy of problems or issues that you inherit are somehow things you can just brush aside. Ross did you have to beat the. Trevor noah there did Did the networks do it for you. It's comedy central and it's late night. Plus we see networks like cnn getting away with an all the time too. So i guess it's an accepted part of the language now to say that i can't get away with that. You would absolutely spank me. If i said something like that ross on because we answer the fcc they don't exactly port exactly we we and we're not going out like that. Yeah here we go. Trevor noah no get away with that expletive mubarak obama former free leader. Leader of the free world does and even skip abate because this is the language of the people. He's trying to reach. no. I don't see how president trump or donald trump came in and broke everything. See we called. You make america great again. We call building the strongest economy that the world has ever seen. We've talked about border security. We talked about tax cuts. We've talked about the highest black employment rate in american history hispanic with. We're talking about all of these things. We've talked about peace in the middle east breaking out even as of yesterday we're talking about moving the capital of of jerusalem from tel aviv to our ears. Israel we talk about that is coming in and breaking things he did. President trump came in and broke up the plans of the new world order. He came up and he broke up the plans of the global elite and this is why they had to do any and everything to remove him now to get down to the nitty gritty a few weeks ago. Obama said you know the say to go around defunding the police. that's not. That's not a good thing to do. You're going you're going to end up losing votes for this listen to this narrative and then understand what they're trying to set up. I then said well. What do you think about the particular slogan de-fund the police and i said well that particular slogan. I think the concern is that there may be potential allies out there that you lose and issue always is How do you get enough people to support your cause that you can actually analyze it and translated into laws right throws and so forth or two or three writers who i admire who wrote a bama's making an emissions at chastised black lives matter and you go. What a second. I i just spent the whole summer. Complementing them. what are you talking about. De miss obama's speech patterns. I don't all cracked it to make him under intelligent when he's actually not. It's hilarious to me. Because people love the way about speaks. He sounds like a president. He comes off like a president even though he didn't get anything done but they criticize president. Trump's speech pattern even though he's gotten things done it's amazing. What are we watching. We have obama here. resetting policy. He is he is. He's basically the quarterback he's definitely quarterback he's running this ship. The you realize it election history is unfolding before our very eyes. Do you understand the time. We're in the bill this morning at nine fifty till you're smart speaker to play five fifty. Kfi on iheartradio. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster james. To harry's history is usually written long after historically. Vince played themselves out. In real life is rare to the gravity of historically vents. As they are actually happening. I was in europe. Nineteen thousand nine. I was studying at the university of nottingham and In the summer. I traveled had a chance to go behind the iron curtain. Remember that travel throughout czechoslovakia. Slovakia was over and poland. I went back a later that summer. Before i returned to the states and i saw something really really strange saw a budget germans hang around and austria are actually not in. Austria was in It was in behind the behind curtain czechoslovakia and i was like. What's all the germans here. You could tell. They were germans because the guys were wearing like these really short shorts sort of like you know like man booty shorts. I don't know a spoken is really strong cigarettes. And i'm thinking this jerk is a german thing i just as a process of new those sorts. Where he no. He has no idea. Anyway i was with czech friends. And they're like now these people. These are the guys from east germany. I'm gonna go. What did he doing here. The turns out there was like a a hole in the fence. Not a literal one. But one where you know. The germans east germans the communist. Were not it anymore and people were just walking out literally walking into the west from the other side of the of the iron curtain. They were walking into freedom leaving. I had no idea what was going on at the time later that year when the had returned to the united states the berlin wall came down huge and that was the beginning of the end of the soviet union. I'm sitting there hanging out a watching the a germany dues wearing booty shorts. Smoking smart cigarettes. Not knowing that i was in a place were were history was unfolding. Same thing is happening to us right now. We are living through history but a lot of us are not aware of it. We're living in a period of time with our very way of life. Our republic is a stake. Oh you may not know that looking at the tv shows are still doing the same type of tv. They did years ago three years ago. Four years ago this seems like nothing really has changed but the danger. Today's strikes at the foundation of our republic. Most americans don't quite recognize that the exercise of the various god given rights we enjoy is protected. Not by the two hundred and thirty one year old document displayed in the national archives. But rather by the fact that most americans choose to respect the government and institutions that have built on that documents words while the police and other government officials play a role in dealing with the outliers for the most part we. The people pay our taxes. We the people strive to obey the law. We avoid confrontations with our neighbors. We do it voluntarily. We we don't do because there's some armed a police a ward of the state at the end of our block. We understand that part of our neighborhoods communities and our country are based on laws that that find mostly the there founded on the constitution and the values that inspired the declaration of independence. We the people follow the rules. Because we've just like it's ingrained. We we live out the values of our founding document now reliving in a period of time will we don't have respect for our institutions. What is it approval rating for congress right now is at eighteen percent but we still remain engage in a process because we know that every two years of we don't like who's representative so we throw them out. We don't do that allowed anymore. But what happens when we the people feel as though our right to have our say in. Our government is gone when we feel as though we're ignored but we feel that we're no longer free what happens. We're in new territory. We have we have fully half. The population feel as though they'd been disenfranchised and were forced to watch the theft. Play out right in front of our face while politicians tell us or told us. There's nothing to see here. My fear right now is that the left keeps doubling down and they will and of course continue to ignore and they will. We're headed into uncharted territory as a country. We're headed into history. Oh histories exciting is exciting times. But a lot of people are dealing with fear because they understand what very well may be lost. Democrat cities are experiencing of violence. They have been experienced it since march of this year. Seems like all of these chickens are coming home to roost. We have city councilman saudi cisco who called it out. We're going to talk to his chief of staff at seven three. To find out what they're trying to get at phoenix. Still a safe place to live. Gentlemen children of all ages To serve as circus james p ago city councilman south of cisco had a facebook post in which he absolutely launched talks about. How crime is rising. In the city of phoenix. He talked about how Basically this is because we don't have enough police officers patrolling the streets and he's sad. That phoenix is becoming a place. That might be maybe too dangerous to live in the center ring conservative circuits. We have sam stone chief of staff for a phoenix city councilman cecile and sam. What is going on in phoenix This this date been dessau. The your made is quite terrifying. He said if you feel safe living phoenix. You shouldn't so far this year. Phoenix messiahs have increased by fifty two percent a bigger increase than even in new york city. Let that sink in. What is going on games. I you know it's a great question because right now if you're living here in phoenix there's something changing that's pretty dramatic. I mean we have always been one of faith or cities to live in. But you look at thefts and you look at this year so far and it's not letting up this month i promise you that you look at this year so far. You've seen a thirty three percent increase in murders in new york city forty seven percent in chicago fifty two percent and cenex fifty two percent. James it is insane and it is a result of bad policy and bad ideas coming from the left and it is covid and it is anti police. Blm bowl that we are seeing in the streets. It is creating an anti police attitude. But it's putting our citizens live at risk. Sammy baugh said that. These attacks on our cops aren't just coming from the radical left he called out jim warring at a devas dark. The do we have an explanation for their inaction. who are they. What is their inaction. Deborah stark is an independent. Jim wearing is the other republican on the phoenix city council and a few weeks ago. If you remember all this stuff about the citizens oversight committee the oat Office of accountability and transparency. That that the way it's written is is essentially designed to gut and neuter the police department and put them under the thumb of leftists politicians. When that vote came up we had an alternate motion. Ready to go. That would have put a board similar to out but that would not have damaged. The police department would have provided additional transparency and accountability. In these to refuse to sign the letter that would have put it on the agenda. Okay i came. i'm speechless. It is irresponsibility at the highest level. They had a choice to do the right thing period. Throw out everything else. Do the right thing and didn't do it. We have sam stone in the center. Ring of the ca- the circus. He is the chief of staff for phoenix city. Councilman sal desist. You'll as as phoenix goals. I mean we're talking about the rest of the valley. They're having a crime problem. A crime spree in phoenix doctors going to be contained. There is going to continue to grow and to a sandstone. Would i hear you. Saying is the policies quite frankly the liberal policies of the government. That's in place right. There is not helping us making things worse. Yeah absolutely you're absolutely right. It's going to spread it spreading in glendale it's spreading in tempe and mesa. This is happening and it's coming to your community to and it is a sense of lawlessness that is essentially protected by the left. I mean you look at people like the mayor kate. Geigo you look at a councilwoman like laura pastore these people with histories and politics and we know we know they don't actually personally buy into the rhetoric of the extreme left and yet they've gone along with them. It is cowardice change and it is getting people killed. My question is how many bodies does the mayor have to see in the streets before she does something to stand up for. Our cops suck talked about sending for the police. But you also talked about an issue that i want to go deeper in as our congressional leaders in governor continue to do nothing to stop. What feels like a growing desperation. How does anyone think it's a great idea to be short. A law enforcement officers. I mean do you get the sense that the the crackdown the the shutdowns. The covert mandates are adding fuel to this crime fire came. It's not a sense. It is an absolute fact. That is absolutely happening. People are on edge. People are being scared to death by their own leaders and then they're being locked in and so you have politicians who are with one hand locking law abiding citizens in their homes and on the end destroying livelihood and on the other hand they're letting criminals out of jail. You know on the same reasoning and saying oh well we've just got to let them go look at the impacts. this is having. This is unbelievable what we have done to this country. This year is absolutely unimportant should be unimaginable. It is unimaginable to your point. I was looking at a article That suggestion out there that are officials should to a more criminals rapists among them using coal it as the excuse when what you just said who could imagine being in this spot where we are who who could have imagined this a year ago is so on point and yet en- get samsung. We have so many people that are still willing to go along with this. It's insane james. I got a letter yesterday. From the police association in los angeles and what they said is really clear they said look our inability to make stops and put people in jail and you know do take their guns away and do these things that we have to do to keep people safe. We are not being able to do that. And the result people are getting killed and they had a whole list of the people there who have been killed By by people who have had been stopped by the police and let go. And that's happening across the country and you can see carlos garcia and the extreme left on the city council here for that year. They're demanding we let all these criminals rapists murderers out of jail it is insane. The the twenty twenty scourges looks like is going to carry into twenty twenty one as we have more leaders that are not willing to to do their job and to protect the people sam stone chief of staff for city. Councilman sowed assist. You wanna thank you very much sill assist you. Put this out and some people think that with or what what. What kind of rant does this will. It's a rant coming from someone who is in government who has their finger on the pulse of the community and is seeing the community being engulfed in violent crime. I thought for a long time. We were getting away with it. Because i don't know who you're kind of escape to but these numbers are alarming. The phoenix homicides have increased by fifty two percent more than new york more than chicago. We need to let that sink in. And i've heard from from a sheriffs and police officers myself that the job has become so much more stressful. Since the lockdowns. I was out to dinner one night. Bumped into sheriff. We was like trying to be out to dinner to kind of get away from it all but he couldn't. he was telling me about the suicides. They walked in on he. He was telling me about the domestic violence and somehow our leadership from the governor to our mayors. Don't see a problem with this. The bigger problem is the is the covid crisis. The kovic non crisis. Let's talk about that. A small businesses are starting to push back. We will do that at seven. Eighteen into the truck. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster. James t harris and escola vaccines near government. Coercion begins in earnest. What what kind of life is this. What are we doing as i told you on the show earlier this week i got kicked out of storage. Got kicked out of a store. Tried to take my stuff and send me out his store. I had to either wear a mask the to continue to shop or leave the premises chosen. Do neither i kept shopping until they until they became forceful. Try to take my items. I said no. You're not going to walk out of here with them or i'll pay for them but and went to the front end is still already got in line of the long line. These people wind and plucked me out of the line in opened up a new lane. Sokaia hurry up and get me out of there. And he told me they are now enforcing the mask mandate told him i see you next week. Well my wife. She didn't want me to get keep getting exposed to this or what she did she she did like a drive by pickup order actually have a liberal services place so they delivered some items last night and i opened the door and the man was there and he was fully mass. If you'd like. I can take the stairs for you. I want you to know that. I've already had the covert. I don't think it spreads he was wearing. Yeah i said oh you thought because you because we were afraid of cove. We don't recall but that's not the case at all sir reason why my wife called you because i just got kicked out of your store the other day and then he laughed and he he picked up the the packages come on in. Because we don't do cobra here. He laughed and walked upstairs and deliver justice. He said you know what. They're cracking down everywhere. Everybody's having to wear them now. It's funny because now we have this spectacular news that the vaccinations are here in the vaccinations were supposed to give us relief on this right wrong wrong to pacify a public that they knew would object to being locked out of social life forever. Politicians and policymakers paired the early economic shutdowns with assurances that they would be temporary two weeks remember and after vaccination had been developed. They promise like would go back to the way it was before as many of you know they lied. They are committed to the lockdown and it is driving people literally crazy even as early spring twenty twenty. Us dr fauci. They're warning of the dire consequences of unending force. Closures of businesses and social activities. He said now is the time depending upon where you are and what your situation is to begin. Seriously to look at reopening the economy reopening the country the to get back to some degree of normal. That's what dr fauci said. Lip service that the social engineers paid to a to return to a some degree of normalcy s. Now ancient history. And you know what this has not been explained to us has it. We haven't even been told to follow. The science. vouching company turned on a dime there now. Predicting that economic is social life remain off limits until fall of twenty twenty one at the earliest. We had dr fauci on the sunday programs last weekend. Talking about you know what we could see three hundred thousand. Covert nineteen deaths. There might be more even a death count right now is heavily disputed but you notice we get we get cove it updates every single day. We don't get any flu updates. We don't get any cancer updates. It's all covert kovic. Covert since the very first days of this pandemic federal policy makers have waged a concentrated effort to push vaccinations on the american people. Even before via volkova vaccination had even entered the trials. What kind of life is this now. The american people are really not into the vaccinations. So we have one lawmaker. That's proposing that you get a fifteen hundred dollar stimulus check if you get the shot while you know we now are suffering from a virus that is so deadly that the government is paying you fifteen hundred dollars to get a shot. These are the things that that that frightened me. The government's doing it but that they knew that we were such a compliant people that they could do it and get away with it. I ask the question again. What kind of life is this. We're not going to return to normal as long as we put up with this. And that's what's coming down to is coming down to us. It's coming down to we the people you have people pushing back all across this country but there's not enough we have recalls breaking out in california. There's a recall here underway in. They'll tell you the likelihood of it being successful. Hey you know what it is time for. We the people to use everything at our disposal even civil disobedience in order to push back against this madness this madness. This corrosion rolling out by our governors. Yes scott was skoda's did earlier. I should say. Friday night is personal and many people are still brooding over it. We're gonna talk about that in you know in in light of what's happening with electoral college as well. That's coming up at seven. Thirty three rush. The maha-rushie rush limbaugh today and tannehill. You're smart speaking to play five fifty. Kfi are you listening in. The snow is glistening. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster. James t. here's the decision by scottish. Not to take. The texas case was not just a Sort of a a dodge duties. A lot of folks are feeling betrayed. It was so studying. That really couldn't talk about it. It was so stunned. You're wait wait. Wait what i think. It was the last nail in the coffin. Where a lot of americans who felt like they've been betrayed by their institutions. The talk before that was you know the justices you know. They're going to look at this. This is a we've got a gorsuch we've got Cavenaugh we've got barrett. These are the people that president trump put on the court shirley that at least look into it nope nope just another three in long list of individuals that have betrayed the president. You've got the president out there. Campaigning for people and then once they get in power up the can't support him can't support. We've had way more. Republicans have walked away with their head down shuffling. You know then those were willing to fight. It's quite amazing. So you got gert gorsuch. You've got cabinet and you've got bear it. Here's her legacy after what happened with the supreme court deciding not to pick up the this case. You've got a couple of supreme court justice thomas that is still respected but as we get deeper and deeper into this and it'll be over in a few weeks but as we get deeper and deeper into the steel into the betrayal ruining the reputations i think that gorsuch cavenaugh and barrett they're never going to regain their statute the stature among american people. This is not going to happen although they may be comfortable in their position and for quite a long time personally and professionally not going to be respected. I believe that in a very real sense. The supreme court has no more credibility with we the people and even though they may feel differently about that. I think they're wrong. I think this is going to play out. I also think that this is what we're watching in the senate of course yesterday you had mitch mcconnell say this today. I want to congratulate. President elect joe biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the senate. He's devoted himself to public service for many years. Also want to congratulate. the vice. President elect our colleague from california senator harris beyond our differences. All americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president elect for the very first time. I actually now i remember. That's the argument that was thrown at me when obama was Electric we'll at least you know he's the first black president okay. Ns both make me feel all warm and fuzzy for some reason. I'm sorry i'm beyond that. I'm looking at Ideology i don't judge a person by the by the color of his skin. I'm looking at the content of the character and their ideas. It's amazing how we've abandoned that. So there's mitch who. He's got a first female president. She's a woman of color to graduations. Then all the usual suspects are rolling up from under their rocks. Here's mitt romney so we need to have people who are strong trump's supporters. Come out and say that as well or you're going to continue to this country divided which is pretty dangerous. That was notably accent from mitch mcconnell speech this morning does he need to say that he needs to go further. That's what i hear you saying. Well no i think mitch. Mcconnell did exactly what he needs to do but some of those that are really identified as being strong strong trump supporters They'd make a real difference if they came out and spoke and said you know what We gotta get behind this new president-elect he was let's move on we're not getting behind him and he was not legitimately elected. And how do you know that did mitt. Romney won't even attend a fellow. Senate a senator ron johnson. Who's trying to look into some of the problems with the election. Are you going to go. Are you going to protest what we do. I'm not going to go to that. I don't think it's productive at this stage. If at some point down the road we wanna to look whatever. Election irregularities occurred In two thousand twenty as well as two thousand sixteen in two thousand twelve sure but those are those are marginal irregularities meaning. They're not substantial and across the board. They're not substantial enough to change the outcome of the election. It's always appropriate to find ways to make elections more secure but our systems have worked pretty well and they have over the years and they will continue to in the future. What do you have to say about someone like this. What do you have to save with seven like this. I mean let's not forget the same cheat that a lot of people think happened with this one with the machines will they were warming up back in two thousand twelve and who were the victims of two thousand twelve well. Mitt romney or republicans. Mitt romney and paul ryan. But here we are eight years later and they don't see like that you know. I think the biggest concern that i have is that people here genuinely believe that. Somehow this election was stolen. And there's not evidence of that. The president was saying it was stolen even before election day happen. He said if he loses it would be fraud. Well i don't know that. I thought i was gonna win too. I ran for president in two thousand twelve. I didn't how you go out and say fraud We have a process. We count the votes. That's the way it is. And i'm concerned that the cause of democracy here as well as around the world people look to us. We're the democratic leader of the world. What's going on now. I'm afraid of terribly dispiriting. All over the globe agree. It is terribly dispiriting. But not because we're the democracy the world we were the republic but used to be that that light on a hill that beacon to freedom use just so summarily dismissed her on loss. Maybe you should've went out and called fraud because it was shocking looking back on this election now we can better understand why a feckless barack obama was able to beat you and paul ryan but no now we have two fold. Tent now is dangerous to question stuff. You know it's mostly fair. That's the same as saying you know what this. This glass of water is is mostly cleaned. I just urinated just drop it just to drop a urine. That's all drink it. Go ahead mitt. Romney drake cat. Guess what we have a major health organization that has rescinded Their stance on a drug. That could have helped. Tens of thousands of people are going to talk about that. A seven forty eight. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster. James t harris you. Don't we just had the secretary as are out. And he was on fox and friends. He's wearing his mask. So i couldn't see his face but we're starting to get information about him. He saying that you know what This new drug vaccine. That's out that is available for a first run with people who are over the age of sixty five is not being disseminated which is interesting which is very interesting saying that if you are over sixty five years old and you've tested positive for covert There is a a drug out there that you should be able to take the. They're they're saying that you know. The government has made it available but for some reason you have governors in states that are sitting on this. They're not it's not getting. It's not getting distributed and it begs the question for those of you who are still wondering what's going on. Why is it that once again we get another drug that could be somewhat useful in the battle of covert. That's being withheld. Why is it that we have the government stepping in well actually sort of like a government civil war half of the government. A the trump side of the government's put it like that is has operation warp speed trying to get vaccinations and drugs to we. The people and has a mind blowing pace breaking all kinds of record. They're it's a miracle and then when the drugs arrive and they're ready you have another part of the government that's stopping is distribution. Why is that you know. These are questions that need to be asked and the need to be asked him more. Why is it that we governor cuomo. He stands out in this whole thing. Governor cuomo's decision to people who were sick with covid who are supposed to be recovering in nursing homes was was was was catastrophic. It led to the bulk of the deaths in new york but instead of being held responsible for that you know he was given an award and he was given an emmy for the way he delivered his co. vet his co. daily briefings. But as. I said it wasn't the only one who did that we had. We had governors across the state are even even in arizona. We had covert patients in with senior citizens. Now we're finding out that there is a drug that's been released a specifically for people who are over the age of sixty five sixty and and they get sick that this drug is available for them but we have a number of states that are sitting on it. You know what is almost as if we have governors that are holding a their constituents their citizens hostage until they get that big. Payoff that big stimulus. I don't want to take down conspiracy road. But this is too bizarre. It is too bizarre. The we find ourselves in a situation where a our our government government officials are open and willing to cause harm in our states. Close down commerce targeted. The small businessmen targeting the middle class withholding drugs from people who are most vulnerable without explanation notice. They're not even bothering to say we trust the science anymore. They're not even willing to throw that line at you. Because it's a lie and it's been exposed to be ally. We also have controversy behind the the high hydroxychloroquine. You're supposed to be new studies out to say you know what maybe the media was wrong about. This maybe maybe a some of our government officials were wrong about this at the end of the day. We got a big fat problem here and it just keeps compounding and it is the amount of power and control that our local government has over our lives. We're going to talk to dr zuhdi. Jasser about a this drug about it. Is that the government is now playing the role of dr and what we can do to the possibly get out of this. How did we get off from under this new snow drive have arrived of. What do we think about the ways. Gentlemen children of all ages to trying to serve at as she was just talking about some drugs that could be very helpful to you get covert or have symptoms. You're over the age of sixty five but has kind of slowed and getting out just controversy out there about i- drastic lower win in the center ring of the conservative circuits. We have dr jasser zuhdi. Jasser he's president of the justice. Center for comprehensive care and phoenix. He's a former lieutenant. Commander in the united states. Navy a medical corps. And he's the past president of arizona medical association doctor. Thank you so much for agreeing to come on. And in clear up some confusion over the fake news reports that the ama have approved hydroxychloroquine. What is the truth of this controversy. Back with james thanks Well the truth is the ama you know somebody in the ama was going to Propose having a may rescind its limitation on the use of it but That did not happen. The ama still Stand behind most of the research and and to tell you choose. Listen my problem with it and you were talking about earlier is government intervention and physician prescription In off label you. So that's the slippery slope that i can't tell you how much it would affect american medicine. If we had governor's state officials start to interfere in. Fda approved meds for one purpose. And then telling us we can't use it at all unless they Micromanage us at the bedside but the bottom line is as hierachy chloroquine. You know the jury's still out i'm open minded about it but most of the research has shown that the benefits do not outweigh the risks in it and that it is a drug. That's for lupus and autoimmune conditions. And we're still a little weary about whether it's actually beneficial in cases of covid prevention fair enough by a lot of friends some who travel overseas who swear by it. I think when it comes down to it to dr zuhdi. I will just like the choice. If you know if if it came down to be trying get. I would like to tour. I wouldn't like other people standing in the way of it. Especially if they were elected officials absolutely. I can't i mean there are so many mad. This gets to the whole crux of american medicine. Which is the is the fda about simply proving safety of drugs or is it about Regulating how we write them in why we write them and what we write them for It should not be for a efficacy necessarily but simply for safety so once they start get payers. Insurance companies can regulate what they're going to pay for what they don't but if patients want to pay for something and the doctor wants the right number prescription it is the end of freedom and the practice of the inviolability of the relationship between doctors and patients. Government is going to interfere and right executive orders from the governor's office about what we can and cannot write. Zuhdi sits a ring of the conservative circus. There seems to be an increase panic over hospital. Bits covert patients and as a result communities like pima county are imposing strict rules ascending out. Spies just crazy stuff as mitigation. If things are as bad as they say why are we stopping elective surgeries and treating patients like like we did earlier. That's a great question. I think there's a couple of things first of all we define. The elective is anything that can't be done. Emerging that doesn't need to be done emergency and we realize that a lot of the things that were elective really aren't gonna cancer surgeries removal of tumors cardiac procedures and other things. That might not be imminently Fatal for a patient but left one or two months can affect mortality a lot. That's number one number. Two are testing in preparation of patients than they are and others for safety is a lot better now than it was six seven months ago. But i think the last lesson. James is that We overreacted in the spring. I think that the limitation as i. I talked about before back then. I was trying to please a lot of my patients that were not being allowed the so-called elective surgeries to really semi elective. And now we're realizing that mortality is up in a lot of other conditions this year and we'll be up next year sort of in the pandemic after the pandemic because we did delay of so-called elective surgeries. And now they're just not doing it again right now. 'cause they've learned that lesson doctor. Is there any science behind curfews. I mean does the science show that kovalyov goes to bed at ten pm. Not only does not go to bed. The shuttering of restaurants and other things You know there's no tracing gyms like he's talked before about. Jim's where's the tracing data to show that. There's huge gatherings happening subversively at midnight that is becoming a spreader events that we'd never heard of so it just sort of is the Media and governmental politicians trying to say. Oh look what i did. I passed a curfew in order to show that. I care about your life and all the other things that matter. They're not doing so. It's just sort of a deception by a fake action. Dr zuhdi. I wanted to ask jess. I wanna ask you about this drug regeneron. We were just talking about how we had the secretary on Fox and friends say. Hey you know what There's not enough getting out. It seems like it's being held back. If you're over sixty five and you think you have system of symptoms go to your physician and demand that you get this regeneron. Why would this be held back. That's a great question. I'm not sure about the details. You know we need to talk about there is an answer is polly. Cornel antibody the president got it and They think it's affected. The study are not supposedly conclusive but it tends to be beneficial. There is a monoclonal antibody therapy. I've already had five or six patients. Go through and many of us. It is available in arizona. It's an idea fusion it's called them and It has shown to help. In mild cases patients that fit certain categories that are sixty five and above. Just like you said so. There are infusion therapies out there. We think that one's actually approved and we have been writing it and using in the past few weeks here in arizona and elsewhere regeneron. I think the meet some of the criteria. I don't know enough about the research to tell you why that isn't if it's political or if it's scientific but Yeah those therapies should be made as available as humanly possible. The dr jasser is president of the justice. Center for comprehensive care and phoenix. He's a former lieutenant. Commander in the united states navy medical corps the past president of arizona medical association doctors chassar. We are definitely seeing an increase in positive tests. So we're towed. Aren't we getting better at preventing death from covert. Oh absolutely death. Rates are going way down. And i will find a after the first round vaccine and the next one to two months. I mean. Look at the spike. They said that was going to happen and thanksgiving. It didn't necessarily happen. We just saw slow increase over time. There was no two weeks or ten days after the thanksgiving. So this is a normal second wave For the virus and it is making its way through a population that was not vaccinated. So it's sort of normal the numbers actually if you take away the numbers from nursing facilities it pretty much. Looks like a horrible flu season So yes the numbers are much worse than the flu. When you put all the numbers together But the the bottom line is that It's a typical flow that we're seeing in and It's it's not as bad as reported dr jasser. I wanna thank you very much for reporting game. We love talking to you. You gave us gives us the straight skinny all the time. Here's the question you're just said you take the nursing home population out of it and what you have here is a bad flu season. Okay but then we have all of these drugs out there. Yes some drugs that are designed for people that work better with people over the age of sixty five that are dealing with this. But the rest of you. There's a big push out there for you to get your vaccination. They had a big fat show of it the other day. My question is is a temperature. Check how many of you out there are going to line up to get your vaccination against the it six zero two. Two zero fifty. Three ninety four is the telephone number homily of you plan on getting a vaccination. We will take your calls at eight eighteen listening to the conservative circus. I m ringmaster. Jokes year's christmas is the best time. We just had a conversation with. Dr zuhdi jasser love a guy. So honest he so straightforward his big concern. That the government's getting in the way of doctors. Who are you know the doctor patient relationship they're starting to dictate it. Every facet of our society is getting hammered by our elected officials. But they've wrote the vaccine with a with a bit too big celebration. My question is are you going to line up to get your covid. Nineteen vaccination telephone number six zero two six two six zero fifty three ninety four. To the phones we go dale and phoenix. Welcome to the conservative circus. Hello are you going to take the vaccination. Oh hell no oh what the hell no. But the hell in front of it. Why not is supposed to be able to help you help you deal with the dreaded covid nineteen no. I'd rather catch it man and just to build immune system. We'll see now. Isn't that what we say about other viruses as well. You know didn't didn't we. When we were little children. Our parents take us over to the house. They had chicken pox so we can get it to then we didn't we have to go over to get mob so we can get it too. I think so. Eric in phoenix welcome to the conservative circus. That you plan on taking the vaccination sure don't i don't see the need to jane. What happens if they offer you a fifteen hundred dollar. Check to get that shot. Well i'm not afraid of it. I like the money right. So you go ahead and you will go ahead and get you go ahead. And get the vaccination. If they're gonna pay you to do it yeah might as well fifteen hundred bucks and a lot of money. I wouldn't give that up. I just don't see the reason. I'm almost fifty years old. I heard some stat. Ninety nine point four percent chance of dying. That's the virus. I just don't see that the virus or the vaccine is is meant for me. It's meant for people that are more susceptible to You know affectionate and and death from the back up. How would you feel if they're mandated that you had to take it. Well i hate being told what to do. And i wouldn't do it. Eric way again erickson. I'll take the money. I'll take that money but you if you try to pay me to do but if you try to force me that could be a problem. Cj and mesa. welcome to the conservative circus. How do you feel about the vaccine. We won't be taking it. And i had coded so Yeah not going to happen. No wait a minute. You've had called the tj and you're able to talk to me on the and that's that's what they no one's talking about that. There is my whole entire family. Got we all got at the same time and it was a lighter strain. I guess we it was like a walk in the park. Compared to the flu. I will take kobe any day that i got a minute. Wait you your family. You on the respirators we all. This was like a coup with the headache. That was a little bit different than a normal headache at accompanied the cold but it was like nothing compared to the flu. Cj and your whole family got how many hospital less that take up. The joe family take. None of us went to the doctor. Then i got tested. That was that we stayed away from. You know society for You know the time we're supposed to and it was done and over with it was actually. It's it didn't even last more than you know four or five days but it was. It was just a cold really. I mean i can't about. I think when you see all of this news and the daily yield a covert test case counts and and the death numbers and and all of the just fearmongering going on. What do you think seemed you've had. What does that make you feel. Well i just i. I'm sad that people aren't realizing that it's not. It's not a death sentence. it's also not what they're saying. I mean if you want you get what we got. Which was a lighter strain. It's it's just a cold that i mean. That's what we had and we were seven people so we need to talk about. Hey guys. it's not a death sentence. it's it's it's a cold for some for most and if you are healthy and taking your vitamins. Which we did. I was taking zinc. All of us were dosing up on zinc and vitamin d. vitamin d. and. I'm telling you and vitamin c. I'm telling you if you're healthy and you don't have you know anything going on you know health wise. I think you're gonna be fine in different ways you had mentioned the vitamins and the you know all that kind of stuff because you know now. The government the governor's going to put an executive order that we can't buy those things anymore. So go get your zinc. Now thank you very much for the call michael in mesa. Welcome to the conservative circus. Are you going to take the vaccination. No no need. I like that lady before vitamin c. Vitamin d and zinc. I've been taking it for years. And i don't even get a flu shot sh. I haven't gotten a flu shot. I don't believe in that stuff. Keep your immune system. Strong's you'll stay healthy. Wash your hands with soap and water. Don't use those stupid goes hand sanitizers. They weaken your immune system to kill the good enzymes during your body that are needed to fight michael michael. I'm going to have to treat you like you're on youtube or facebook right now and cut you off because you're making too much sense. I just know that kind of information is not talked about. We don't talk about the immune system. We don't talk about getting exercise. We don't talk about getting vitamin d. We don't talk about being out in the sunlight. That is information that is contrary to what we are hearing from our medical professionals. So sir do better. Who is listening on the iheartradio app. Give free iheartradio app. Are you going to take the vaccination absolutely not well. I feel that a lot of questions being asked like what's in these flu shots is there mercury. is there from outta high. Wish they put in other types of immunizations You know there. There's a lot of unanswered questions and You know kind of on I know there's a lot of people that just don't believe in immunizations. I happen to be one of them. you know We'll see what happens. We'll we'll see what happens that i happen to be you know. I'm not anti vaccination person. I'm not against that at all. But at the end of the day i don't see the need for a covid. Nineteen vaccination as our callers have said you know. He has a ninety nine point eight percent recovery rate. There may be some people out there. Who are you'll have some medical issues underlying medical issues where you may think that you you need this. You got frontline medical workers. I think i will consider that. And that's our female. Our female and i wanted to bear children one day. I wouldn't take it from what i'm told i. Guess at the end of the day you have to sit down and do your homework. But but but is our caller was at. Cj said her whole family was sick. She said it was like a mild coat at all of this energy all of this noise is being made of this is very is very disturbing to. Why are they forcing this. Why are they forcing the issue. Oh you want other examples. You got politicians in the media straight up lying to we the people. We'll have some examples of that for you at eight thirty. Three rushes still best listened today at ten till you're smart speaker to play by fifty. Kfi on iheartradio's in a while haas open slave more the fields. We go laughing all the way bells on bob. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster. James harris singers swing the overblown covid response kobe. Kobe does not does. Our caller said earlier. Covert is is for. Some folks spoke like a code worse than the flu for some maybe but overall covid nineteen is not what the medical society the medical community has built it up to be our government. Doctors and our politicians are lying to us and they have been lying to us. I'm not even going to give them the benefit of the doubt a back in march when we were all freaked out about this because it did something unprecedented. They shut down our economy i think given his druthers president trump talk about how that was a mistake. Honestly i think president trump got drawn into this. It was part of the of the plan. And i am not being conspiratorial. I'm telling you that the same people who are behind the the covet fear porn that has altered our society to save people that are behind the the election as a matter. Of fact we loo- used election to usher and melhem balanced to a bunch of states. We gotta change the rules. Because of calvin now here we are pulse election and we still have a our. our government. governors are government lords squeezing the vice on us in line to do it. Governor gavin newsom from california Where have we heard the whole bodybags backstory before we have to be mindful of a deadly. This disease pandemic is. Here's what we've done. We have orders sixty fifty three foot. Refrigerated storage units are currently standing counties and hospitals. We just had to order. Five thousand additional bodybags just purchased for the state and we just distributed down to san diego. Los angeles county's That should be sobering. I don't say that you know. I don't want people to run with that. I don't want people to scare folks but but this is a deadly disease and we need to be mindful of where we are in this current journey together. There's no originality among these democrats. We had an order. Five thousand additional bodybags. We had to bring in refrigerated trucks. Where do we heard that before. Wait a minute right here in arizona. Remember that we gotta bring him by we at the bringing the trucks because people are dying so we just want the mirror just in case lies lies we have The melodrama here's a msnbc reporter which just happened to be watching as as an individual received the vaccination three two one. Wow wow small. Victories yasmine small victories. It again i it. Just it makes you emotional. Tear up because of what the future may hold because of this advancement so incredible. I love that. You catch countdown three two one that horrid stick him in the arm so emotional see but even at they're trying to push the whole and they're trying to scare you. Hey you got five thousand additional bodybags and some refrigeration shots. I don't want you to run with that. i don't want you to be afraid of. We're we have to go through this together. Hey governor news. Where's your next dinner party else tonight. Over rats stop the madness. Stop the madness. So we got the the the death scare going on. We got people getting emotional watching somebody get vaccinated and then you have a doctor gupta over there on. Msnbc who the depressing who brings the depressing news at this not gonna really change anything just because you vaccinated with that. Second dose does not mean you should be participating in things like traveling in the middle of the out of control the pandemic or that. You're liberated from masks. Everything still applies until all of us at the two dose regimen. We don't think that's going to happen until june. July and again this goes back to what we just talked about. Chuck we don't know if just getting the vaccination prevents serious illness or does it also prevent you from getting infection entirely. Take less find out. In the meantime they have drugs out there that drugs out that we had. What is it the secretary on. Who responsible for for making these things possible. And there's a little bit of asia aspiration for some reason. It's not reaching the people that should you said last night that we have to. If we have this we have to actually ask the hospital for regeneron remdesivir. they're not gonna automatically offer it to us. You said you've got plenty out there but doctors are using it if you have covert yep so if you if you are over sixty five or if you're under sixty five are at serious risk of hospitalization from kobe. If you get a positive test please seek out your healthcare professional and ask about the regeneron or lily monoclonal antibody. We have supplies. They're not getting used. Because you don't want to use it when somebody shows up at the emergency room you want to use it win. Their first diagnosed c. Keep that viral. Load down you reverse the disease. Pull pushing it back and you keep out of the hospital. Hopefully i was able to talk to the great leaders here at med star. George how hospital. They're setting up systems. Give out in the community to use it effectively because we don't want wanna over stress the healthcare system and hospitals in these incredible healthcare workers. Would we have tools out there. That can help keep people out. We have tools that can help people out but our hospitals in our governor. They're not they're not using those tools. It says if they want people to come in as they get paid for every person that comes in james. You're being cynical. Yes yes i am. I'm saying follow the money because none of this makes sense. You have the drugs but you have to go ask the doctor. Do not making it available at the same time. They want you to come in. And they're even willing to pay you to get a vaccination lady ladies gentleman people. We can't just hello. I want to talk to you about how the media is lying to you as well about the electoral college. What took place here in arizona. Just a few days ago l. Driving the left. That's why we love rush this morning at ten on your smart speaker. Say play five fifty k you. You're listening to the conservative circles under ringmaster. James here's this week. Arizona's journalists expose themselves for the frogs that they are ignoring history and precedent they call. The republicans moved to send republican electors to the electoral college. Insane crazy one. Journalist brand resnick with affiars to call it a clown cu. It's amazing after watching a four year. Coup attempt home nate in a stolen election. This guy calls somebody trying to rectify the situation using the constitution. A coup now journalists. Don't know history american history or not journalist. I go for the ladder. The truth of the matter is these people are propagandist but they are writing the very news. doing that. thing with my fingers that arizona's rely on to make good decisions and it is because of their incredible bias and arrogance that there were a considerable number of arizona who cast their ballots for joe biden. If they would've told the truth that wouldn't have happened if they would've told the truth of biden's condition of biden's family of joe or a hunter biden with the laptop. This wouldn't happen or should say it still would have happened because it was stolen. But you wouldn't have. As many they have to work harder for the steel. I contend it was not enough votes and biden didn't win but he did well and there's no way that that that that doddering old gizzard sort of earned any votes given what we know about his radical plans and his limited cognitive ability corrupt and comical media. I believe is killing our country. Killing date from serious journalists. Like how he fisher to bram resnick is uncontrollably partisan partisan it oozes out of them you could hear even the questions that they ask lord ducie. These so-called journalists are incapable of seeing that they are not objective completely incapable of seeing that. They had nothing other than pundits with no pads. Here's the thing. Our system of government relies on the fourth estate in honest objective media to keep the powers that be in check instead. These individuals are running defense for the powers that be not just on a local level on a national level. We used to say that. The media's by estate thrown off and now they absolutely they plant their flag on being bias of being partisan and for the last four years we have seen trump derangement syndrome on full display. Look around see what their narrative is doing to us. These reporters like government. Workers have jobs as the push for further lockdowns. These reporters like government. Workers don't suffer as our small business owners do. These reporters like politicians have become a part of the cocteau class as long as they get. The right invites the right politically correct and currently social distance in person or zoom parties. They will continue to be unable to see what their dishonesty is doing to the rest of us my suggestion is to turn them off block them. Don't click on their link. No matter how tempted there might be. Do not feed the beast. They're trying to kill our way of life. What the as the gop did by sending alternative state of electric electoral colleges as been done in the past. We shall see what comes of it. But that's only if the media reports it. We have seen how the media has chosen to coverage of cover swallow in order guy sleeping with the chinese spy. Hunter biden that laptop. Nothing zilch coverage. This leads me to offer one more piece of advice every time you see their headlines in the future ask yourself. Why am i seeing this and what is it. I'm not seeing the republicans decision to send an alternative slate was a clown coup. No no hardly that is simply the judgment of a prolific clown our media. There is a lot going on. even right. now you have the senate holding hearings on the twenty twenty regulates irregularities. This is what this is what Our good friend from utah said that he was not going to attend mitt romney. Neither will the other rhino republicans attendees. But if you think that this thing is over if you think that we still don't have people who are looking into this if you still have you think the evidence is still not being turned over. Well you would be sorely mistaken. There is pushback though and it is fun. This is fun pushback. Because you can see that the media i mean. They're trying to support joe biden but it is a heavy heavy lift a so you how let heavy. It is at nine. Oh three went to georgia and guess what as a gentlemen children of all ages to kind of serve Circus t address into the point. Where you know that the powers that be are just trying to stick it to just watching the football daring you darren you to to be honest about what you're seeing. Joe biden went to went to georgia to to campaign for two of the democrat senators. That are in runoff. And he got down there he had a rally in of course the tv cameras. They're not gonna show you how many people there are. No they'll keep the camera tightly on joe biden. I will give them this. It was outside but it was bizarre and people who were there. You know you had some conservatives go down. They took their pictures. And they show up on some social media sites. And i i gotta tell you well. Was it ten twelve people there most of it media. So we're supposed to believe that somebody who got eighty five million votes in a landslide can't get across bigger than that while he's campaigning. Literally for the senate. We're supposed to believe that joe biden. Who had this event livestreamed it. What he picked up what fifty two thousand at its height. you compare that to president trump. who was getting. What thirty forty fifty thousand people per event and getting hundreds of thousands of us. When it's live streamed somehow were supposed to believe that. Joe biden beat president trump and a landslide. It's not working out as each day goes by more and more people are just say you know what Something here's not right baton. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster. James t harris cocaine mitch. The mask is off the turtle and the republican senate. Oh man you thought that that does court decision to reject the texas case hurt. There are a lot of republicans around the country a lot of conservatives a lot of trump supporters. that are demoralized. yesterday we had mitch mcconnell. Go to the well of the senate and say this. The electoral college has spoken today. I want to congratulate president. Elect joe biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the senate. He's devoted himself to public service for many years. Also want to congratulate. the vice. President elect our colleague from california. Senator harris ooh ooh he went out there and he president-elect wow it gets worse then. This reported a in the political that mitch mcconnell said to to republicans. He wore republican senators. Don't you dare challenge biden's win. Don't you dare what wait a minute. Look at all the time that that donald trump bailed out. Mitch mcconnell did together by getting the supreme court justices speaking about the supreme court justices. That was part of the betrayal last week. You had gorsuch. You had cavanaugh. And you had a barrett all justices that that not only did that president trump nominate but we the people fought tooth and now four especially cavenaugh the have them turn their backs on president trump to go stone cold silent lure a lot of people still in shock over that. We've come to expect this from from people like a like a mcconnell and yet still here we have the president here. We are republicans. Here we have conservatives. Still fighting turning over evidence turning over evidence any we mitch mcconnell calling joe biden president-elect and then saying warning senate republicans. Don't you dare make any waves mcconnell toda's caucus at challenging the results with force republicans to make a terrible vote because they would need to vote it down in appear against president trump senate majority whip john thune and senator roy blunt mitch. Mcconnell remarks see they realize that the trump base is live it and they can't put themselves in a position to vote against president trump. at especially the time like this senator shelby moore said that no one objected on the call to mcdonald's encouraging members to accept the election results. There wasn't any pushback to it. There wasn't anyone saying. Oh wait a minute. That didn't occur so the path that was supposed to go through possibly to the senate. Looks like it's blocked. It looks like it's never trumpers at once again. Going to not only pull out the win but read cert- themselves as the powerbrokers in the republican party right now there is a senate hearing going on in which you have. Senator ron johnson. He's looking at irregularities. That happened in the election. I've never trumpers there. Mitt romney answers. Are you going to go. Are you going to protest. what will you do. I'm not going to go to that. I don't think productive at this stage. If at some point down the road we want to look at whatever. Election regularities occurred Thousand twenty as well as two thousand sixteen in two thousand twelve sure those are those are marginal irregularities not substantial and across the board. they're not substantial enough to change the outcome of the election. It's always appropriate to find ways to make elections more secure but our systems have worked pretty well and They have over the years and they will continue to in the future. We're pretty well. At least they have over the years. And you'll we're going to continue these systems going to continue to work in the future. Do you wanna talk about a loser. Just despicable loser. We're talking about mitt romney and that common right there. Oh my goodness went on to say that mitch. Mcconnell did exactly what he was supposed to do. Recognizing biden is president. So at least we know this. We know where we stand outbid trying to tell you but in the last twenty four hours now you get it now you see the establishment is now you think why the walking around so full of themselves the fix was in and they were in on it at least or their faculties and ridiculous. Maybe a little bit of both well what comes next. I tell you what we're gonna change gears a little bit because we got problems right here. In the valley we've got a city councilman talking about how we are beating new york chicago most dangerous way. We'll talk about that coming up next rush. That's the only introduction. He needs later today. Between ten and one on your smart speakers say play five fifty. Kfi on iheartradio of days ago. City councilman sowed assists had a facebook post in which he absolutely launched doug. About how crime is rising in the city of phoenix. He talked about how Basically this is because we don't have enough police officers patrolling the streets and he said that phoenix is becoming a place. That might be maybe too dangerous to live in the center ring of the conservative circuits. We have sam stone. He is the chief of staff for a phoenix city council south asensio and sam. What is going on in phoenix. This this statement he'll made is quite terrifying. He said if you feel safe living in phoenix. You shouldn't so far. This year phoenix homicides have increased by fifty two percent a bigger increase than even in new york city. Let that sink in. What is going on james. you know. It's a great question because right now if you're living here in phoenix there's something changing. It's pretty dramatic. Have always been one of the safer cities to live in. But you look at this and you look at this year so far and it's not letting up this month. I promise you that you look at this year. So far you've seen a thirty three percent increase in murders in new york city forty seven percents chicago fifty two percent and cenex fifty two percent. James it is insane and it is a result of bad policy and bad ideas coming from the left in it is. Kobe did and it is anti police. Blm bowl that we are seeing in the street it is creating an anti police attitude is putting our citizens lives at risk. Sam ball said that these attacks on our cops aren't just coming from the radical left. He called out. Jim warring anna deavere stark. Do we have an explanation for their inaction worthy was what what is their inaction. Deborah stark is an independent. Jim wearing is the other republican on the phoenix city council and a few weeks ago. If you remember all this stuff about these citizens oversight committee the oat Office of accountability and transparency. That the way it's written is is essentially designed to gut and neuter the police department and put them under the thumb of leftists politicians. When that vote came up we had an alternate motion. Ready to go. That would have put a board similar to out but that would not have damaged. The police department would have provided additional transparency and accountability. In these to refuse to sign the letter that would have put it on the agenda. Okay came. i'm speechless. It is irresponsible. At the highest level. They had a choice to do the right thing period. Throw out everything else. Do the right thing and didn't do it. So we have sam stone in the censoring of the conservative circus. He is the chief of staff for phoenix city. Councilman sal decio as as phoenix goals. I mean we're talking about the rest of the valley. They're having a crime problem. A crime spree in phoenix doctors going to be contained. There is going to continue to grow and to spread a sam stone and was saying the policies quite frankly the liberal policies of the government. That's in place right. There is not helping us making things worse absolutely. And you're absolutely right. It's going to spread it's spreading in glendale it's spreading in tempe and mesa. This is happening and it's coming to your community to and it is a sense of lawlessness that is essentially protected by the left. I mean you look at people like the mayor. Kate guy eggo. You look at councilwoman. Like laura pastore these are people with histories and politics and we know we know they don't actually personally buy into the rhetoric of the extreme left and yet they've gone along with them. It is cowardice chains and it is getting people killed my question is. How many bodies does the mayor have to see in the streets before she does something to stand up for our cops. Talk talked about sending for the police put. You also talked about an issue. That i wanna go deeper. And as our congressional leaders in governor continue to do nothing to stop with feels like a growing desperation. How does anyone think it's a great idea to short on law enforcement officers. I mean you get the sense that the crackdown the the shutdowns. The the covert mandates are adding fuel to this crime. Fire james a sense. It is an absolute fact. That is absolutely happening. People are on edge. People are being scared to death by their own leaders and then being locked in and so you have politicians who are with one hand locking law abiding citizens in their homes and on the end destroying livelihood. they're letting criminals out of jail. You know on the same reasoning and saying oh well we just gotta let them go look at the impact. This is having. This is unbelievable what we have done to this country. This year is absolutely unimagined. Should be unimaginable that sam stone of sal desist heels chief of staff way again on a very controversial facebook pulse left by decio and i. It was calling attention to the fact that we have a severe crime problem. That's being unreported. Just like everything else consequence. It's crazy what we're watching in. Twenty twenty a post while repulsed covert during his co. vic so-called pad democ we have maxine waters. Who's making news. It is kind of crazy what she say. But i wanna tied into something that she has said before. That is coming up next sean. Hannity works every day to make america. Great again listen at one on five fifty. Kfyi and on fm at st to dishonest one. That makes you. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am your ringmaster james. Diers maxine waters is in. The news is so it's so crazy. We been tracking maxine for years. But she's become really animated over the last four years. She of course is known for peach. Forty five impeach forty five. Of course they did impeach forty five and it failed but at this point in time maxine water has to be feeling pretty good about herself feeling pretty good about the the mission the ultimate coup in this right here discrepancies sharing white covert. Relief is really being held up now. Mind you covert relief in the form of the vaccination. If you've been waiting for it it's been nothing short of a miracle under project warp speed but we are now in that era area time where we are going to try to reclaim territory. That was lost. What they're going to try to do right now. Is is talk. About how president. Trump did not make these accomplishments. They actually happened in spite of him. They may have just happened because of joe biden but when people say to us why don't you negotiate with them. Garon virus nineteen response and help the people. Why can't you come to an agreement. do you understand we're dealing with. We're dealing with people who are willing to undermine democracy people who claim to be patriots and people who don't have any respect but the constitution and you expect us to be able to sit down with them and put them to negotiate with us. Good bait now. This is awful. The world is watching. And i wanna you. While we have been the lead up of the world particularly on democracies and encouraging other countries around the world to become democratic. We have now taken the bloom off of our leadership. It is absolutely unconscionable in a thinkable that this could be happening to be honest with you. I don't even know what she's talking about what she's rambling taking the bloom off on uncomfortable everything she was accusing i guess. The republicans are trump up. She has actually done herself. But then listen to this ran and understanding that this was really a four year march for maxine waters. I realize no actually. It was longer than that. I keep harking harkening back to. When maxine waters with with roland roland martin of leave his name was back in the cnn. Days maxine waters on the show and she was talking about something that was coming and we keep going back to the stick of this. Could it could. It have been prism. Could've been a different program. She was talking about innocence. How the president obama at the time would be able to keep track on people and keep track on things like forever made clear to to our viewers and listeners. That look this. At the inauguration represented the beginning of his second term s but it also represented the countdown at the end of his presidency and the reality years Like anything else. You better get what you can while. They're because look come two thousand sixteen. That's it. well you know. i don't know. I think some people are missing something here come. The president has put in place and organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That's going to be very very powerful. Who added the organizing for america. Become a five. Oh one c. Four that's right and that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it's never been done before and whoever runs for president on the democratic ticket have to deal with that they're going to have to go down with that database and the concerns of those people off because they can't get around it and he's been very smart. I mean it's very powerful. What he's leaving in place. And i think that's what any democratic candidate going to have to deal with. I think that We we we've been off over the years we know that twenty twelve can look back now. A speculate that you know. Maybe romney and ryan didn't lose that. One maxine waters talk is still in place right now and we'll continue to be in place until this deep state. If you will is dismantled. I tell you what things are going to get exciting over the next couple of weeks. Make sure you are tuned in to the conservative circus be on with russell and hunter this afternoon at five thirty and of course the big top is going to reopen tomorrow morning at six. Am in the meantime you keep your spirits up. Katina pray for this country and pray for this president. We've got bill or coming up next. You are listening to the conservative circus on news.

Dad Bod Rap Pod Ep. 113: J-Live and 38 Spesh

"Hi everybody welcome to. Who Cares about the Rock Hall? A podcast about the rock and Roll Hall of fame. I am your host joke was Allah. We are going to take a break this week. In terms of our regular programming. If you've been listening we have been doing Corentin playlists for the past few weeks and we will continue that most likely next week but we felt it was necessary to do a special episode this week given that we lost the great singer. Songwriter. John Pine He. Unfortunately if you haven't read the news. He contracted covert nineteen and he passed away on the seventh and it's a tragic loss. He was a beloved musician. Both the millions of fans and very beloved within the musical community. He was not an inductive of the rock and Roll Hall of fame but he was nominated for the first time for the two thousand nineteen class. He did not get in but because we were doing our podcast at the time we did do an episode entirely devoted to him and we had the very funny comedian and writer. Jorge McAuliffe who is a huge John Prime Fan and we really liked talking about John Prime and learning about him and so we wanted to re air that episode. As some of you know we've come a long way in terms of our production value on this show so back then. The sound maybe. It wasn't great. The levels weren't good and we didn't drop in songs so I went back through the episode and gave it a Polish and here it is remastered. John prien episode. I will say a trigger warning. We do kind of candidly talk about what could happen induction wise if he died us. Oh that feels insensitive to you. Just a reminder that this was recorded in the fall of two thousand eighteen and we were just kind of talking about the future. It's obviously very sad. It's a sad day. It's a sad week but I hope you guys can find some joy in listening to this here. It is our John Print episode with George McAuliffe. How did you get into John? Prime I think I potentially through Bruce Big Fan. Yeah because I knew that they were both kind of labeled the new deal and there was this whole school of saw looking temporary of Bruce springsteen is yeah okay now. Price first album was seventy one and what Bruce's was like seventy three. Yeah and very different shows when people are labeling things like rambling to find a new too wide net. Yeah so I knew about that and then I would think there are some interview ten years. Where springsteen showed his IPOD playlist very popular feature to do with musicians in presidents. Yeah Yeah exactly. And he had a few John Prime songs. Like I need to listen to this and I listened to clay pigeons which is actually a blaze Foley cover. But it's so John. Prion these days to get back in the saddle again. The claim during the day is dad. Carbondale say and then that just sent me down this rabbit hole. And just like the depth of this person you know and his eye and his sil- writing and it was just kind of the opposite of what a lot of artists that I know how they kind of go about their work and how I like to think that I do connect to you. John Cryan absolutely what what? What do you mean by his songwriting style? Well it's just like Just the lack of ambition but also back no but with a with a strong point of view. It's like I have this point of view that Burns in me and I'm going to be letting it out every so often the other right so that's going to happen throughout a lifetime but not having to be like. This is going to happen a thousand times right now and. I'm going to need to figure out how to do this. And I need Kamata. Make some changes to make sure this happens kind of just sat back and he's more into you know eating meatloaf on Tuesdays and Nashville than like focusing on his career. So he'll have like these large gaps in between albums and they'll come out and it's unbelievable. It's like this treasure trove. It just gets you know. He seems he seems focused on the work. As that. Know as what it is. Yeah he's seems very unassuming. I wouldn't call him a star. No no not at all I mean. He's having a resurgence. Now because of Jason Isabel sturges Simpson these new great country not really kind of aggressive country type people with like middle finger to Nashville Nelson and those guys were back in the seventies almost like punk country if you will that. That's an apps but they really connect to them because they know the depth and they can kind of see that like I call like an empty way of style of writing. Where's just felt very deeply and they all kind of have that this music sad a law Zimmerman Collie it's kind of like country melancholy. That's accurate and it's also very funny like there's a sense of humor in it inbetween between it like you'll almost like a country. Randy Newman. Maybe not that funny. Not As many. Yeah he doesn't like tickle the ivories Broadway flair but in a sense of of witty and you know subversive songwriting and it can kind of stop on a dime like He. Has the song called my Mexican home. Which is just him describing his home in the summer. Basically with all the details and then at the end he talks about his dad passing away on the porch and how his friend sat out there in this Mexican home and Drank Bourbon and cried. But it's like the three act play almost where it ends with this moment. And if you didn't stick through that first part you wouldn't have such a vision of this moment. I don't apologize. Have to now theft and yet prion has been eligible since ninety seven. I was surprised. I didn't realize he had been eligible for that long. And this is the first time he's been nominated. It was really an out of the blue nomination because it felt like well. If he hasn't been considered yet why would it come up now? I think it has something to do with the fact of this new album. That came out this year. Did very well got a lot of attention. Had A lot of people attached to it like you said I know. Dan Auerbach from The black keys was like heavily involved in like song writing and appearing on the album so the hall does not beyond the twenty five year eligibility. There's no real criteria for why someone gets into the hall. I have put together though my own list of criteria that I think lines up pretty well with the people who've been inducted and I think if you do well in these categories you have a decent shot induction so we're GONNA go through these categories With John Pride We're GONNA start off with critical acclaim. I think he is a critics artists. Yeah you know. He is someone who especially because of like that too. I feel like his type of songwriting. Is like a critics dream. That's what they want. They want sophisticated witty. I mean you take that versus like Def leppard right right right so world as we wish it was a lot of comedy and music and things that I love if I like something. It doesn't bode well for it financially. And there's a lot of depth and he's received well critically maybe not given the over the top adoration that someone like. Bruce springsteen gets or Bob Dylan gets but I think is still but those two guys give him that like Bob Dylan listened to him. And you know it's mid Western mind. Trips to the degree is what he said about John Bryan late Mid Western Mine Trips Driving Ryan's music. Yeah wow yeah he he's. He's such a musician's musician. Credibility is John Prion the Midwest. Bruce springsteen not John Cougar Mountain. He came up through the old town. School of folk. Yeah Corcoran's is in Chicago. Was An old place called the Earl of town and a lot of the he started there and I'm was playing in Chicago. Yeah I did suburbs of Chicago killed. No I didn't valor todd at Old Town school folk music and he learned the tar there and wild. He's kind of considered the main guy out of his. There's a crop folk musicians who came out of Chicago by that time. None of them as famous him but like there is kind of a crop. Anything Steve Goodman Goodman. Who's one of his collaborators. I have long hailed John Mellencamp as the bursting scene of the Mid West. We'll see that's another one. When people compare Bon Jovi and Bruce Mike when they say mellencamp and Bruce I think we're GONNA may be a different frequency. I mean I would say that I think for the working man. You know kind of thing. I do think John Mellencamp Scott route. I think all that I get it. The kind of meter going from going from to count pretty common people today. Atkinson hair kind of thing. I was just going to say going from Bruce to mellencamp if you did that same difference but going the other direction away from Mellon Cav you get the president I think maybe they are kind of similarly length the same amount of way but just in different directions you said he sees himself between Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. Because it's such a country sound can also hurt people with his kind of Wit and in-depth. Yeah he has a country sounding and that can be a turnoff and they won't give it a shot might be one of the reasons. He didn't make the ballot until now because the hall. If there's any genre lines that are drawn it feels like country is one of those if your country. You're not rock. Yeah yeah nearly everything else. Yes now we sometimes bring up Dali Parton with we. Sometimes bring up this This rolling stone list because if that's one way to gauge Five hundred greatest albums of all time right two thousand twelve edition sure. Either one is fine. There were minor changes made between each learned last week so sorry John Prien on the list of five hundred greatest albums his debut which is just called John From Eighteen. Seventy one and that is on the list are we always gonNA have you guys? Tried to guess what number that's fun. Oh Yeah Okay. What number do I think okay? I think it's out of the five hundred I think it's probably I think it's in the high three hundreds. I think I'm GONNA say three now. I'm say three forty seven mid three hundred seven. George would anything say three eighty higher? I'd like to as much as I'd like to. I'd lived to take it back and say one dollars. That's the only time I'm ever GONNA use that joke. I promise that's true. Yes it is kidding prime coming in. Oh looks like I made myself laugh. Peron coming in at four fifty. Which is I mean that album thing with it though is like he's so young and the song sound better when he sings them now. She's voices into the kind of character. Yeah he's persona. Yeah but the actual songs there may be no start to finish album and has that strong mean. It's unbelievable. Yeah I I'd say it is a testament to the strength of that album the fact that it's even on that list. There's not a lot of this country on that list but yeah just so good. Yeah and I you know I. We'll transition into the next category which is classic albums and I think that is one where definitively classic trying to cause. I don't know a ton about John. Prime especially before the nomination announcement was trying to figure out what his songs were. I pulled his greatest hits just to Kinda get an aisle. It was a lot of his Jessica. Alba like a lot of from that out and then you know the albums that came after that. I'm not sure I mean I think well received but I don't know if I would put any of the other ones in the category of like always in the conversation of light greatest albums. Yeah probably yeah. I don't think so and you know. He was putting out albums on nearly every year for the entirety of the seventy S. Some of them were record. Companies seemed like they had their hand in it. Because when you stripped down there amazing But then some of them can have this Twang. It's like it's not him? It's like Yeah they'll have like three songs on those that are still unless production. He is probably probably benefits from less production. Wise last two albums are so good. And they're like in his top five probably because his most recent albums you'd put it in his top by how so he's a fine wine primes and Jesus the missing years another one. I put in there okay. But they're not gonNA make those kind of lists but they're they're great and talking about his recent work. He continued to perform after having major surgery because he had some sort of cancer and then removed part of his neck. Yeah well not cancer. His appearance and his voice. You had to learn to not only perform speak again. Yeah but doing it changed it but he still. We still pretty great. The next category is iconic songs slash recognizable songs. And if I'm being perfectly honest the average person I don't think knows any John Prime for like the angel from Montgomery mainly from mainly road And I guess the other ones I throw in maybe from that first album there is a song called Sam Sto. Yeah Sam's own long wide and family you after serving the calm and has a line. What is it? There's a hole in daddy's arm where the money goes. Jesus Christ Holand money. Jesus dries bad for another. Big One can't do it. I don't have it in me. Paradise and a Western Kentucky where my parents were born and there's a backwards down. It's all been many times to play them live to like. I've never been at a concert where people are laughing. And then you just like pin drop out and then everybody says silent for taking song from. He did an album of mostly covers except for one song in spite of ourselves. This ninety eight. Maybe ninety nine way were wrong. It's him and Iris. Dement nineteen ninety eight. This is where I feel like. A sense of humor is on full display. She don't array already. She thinks crossing your legs is funny. She books down nose add money. She gets it on like the Easter Bunny. She's my baby honey. Never GonNA letter go George. Are there any other tracks that you would point to as being notable recognizable all? It's hard to think about. You know for me. It's your choice. Choice is what's your gold. Sometimes when I hear is his record versions of Mike. Still I still like it. But when you hear springsteen songs like that too were down or a different song in the heart of it is is unreal gets over produced and lose a something a lot of production on it. It was kind of like a John. Thiel yes well did he. Yeah it's probably more heartfelt when he's just on the dodge. Yeah yeah it totally. The next category is commercial success. Which you know. He's not he's not selling millions and millions of albums the last album that he released in two thousand eighteen. The tree forgiveness was number five which is shocking that's because that's the only people who are still buying carson the last five or so years where it's like. Wow rush finally had their first number one album. Yeah Yeah of course weird. Al Yankovic had his first number one album. So many of those people who've been around for a long time who finally got number one albums commish. That doesn't mean that they've connected to a new audience too because they've been able to hold onto something. In addition to having loyal fans and the music industry failing that bay says audiences have like quadrupled in the last five years from. Jason is bell and start. Wow okay. That's pretty cool. Yeah but I wouldn't give him a ton of points in the Commercial Success Cap de forget that because I'm so locked in I'm in my own. Yeah you're not even thinking. Longevity is the next category you know he was like I said. He was putting out albums nearly every year in the in the seventies and I feel like I mean you you gotta give them credit like what we were saying with Isabelle and Simpson and inputting album this year. That people like I mean. That's that's a pretty incredible. Yeah the longevity Zehr if we're talking about his artistic peak you know we're talking about maybe nine or ten years seventy one to eighty or something just looking on when his albums stopping frequent when they stopped charting. But I think props have to be given for the fact that he put out a recording this year. That got a lot of good you notice similar to it warns. Yvonne was a similar. He has last three albums. Were as great as those initial initial surge even but it was at a different time right but also going through like for someone to go through like you know disco and Sin Alternative Rock and whatever. The nineties was after that. I mean there's something to this war artists and there's fashion and then there's the real thing right and the songs shine through and he never violated his principles or what what he stood for right which is pretty cool. Doesn't that trying to hold onto it with some bizarre surgeries and the next category is influence innovation. I think this might be his strongest one of his stronger categories. Because we've already talked about people like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan Bonnie Raitt and creeping into now Circle Simpson and Jason Isabel. And there's weird ones that pop up to thirty bio. Yeah I definitely hear that. Yeah there's an interview with Roger Waters From Pink Floyd where they asked him about radiohead and they were like. What do you think of radiohead? And he went. I listened to it. I didn't feel anything. Let's talk about John. Pry and he was like I want you guys really great and I think he makes music that speaks to me and it was an interview or they just wanted to get his opinion on the new. Yeah Yeah what about John Bryan guys great. Yeah it's while it's like you have to find them at the right time and age. I don't know something. I don't know if I would've listened to youth. He is not for the youth. You have to have a little life in. You have to have a little bit a life underneath your belt To appreciate a a wine leg that when he was I mean he was like so young when he when he wrote those early. If there's something I think I looked back at a lot of artists and now you're almost not allowed to have enough or you're so guarded that it takes people until they're in their thirties to be able to experience enough life to bring their their experience. Yeah the art. Yeah and while it didn't used to be twenty and you had enough right in Vietnam or I think you grew up faster and people are having now. I think Chris Christopherson founded or founded found. Yeah he's got a McDonald's he's that's an incredible story and Kris Kristofferson. Excuse me back it up. What so Kris Kristofferson like in a star is born found? He was just at a show. I think he was with Steve Goodman had made a little success his friend in Chicago and he was on tour. Maybe with Chris Christopherson and he kept saying you have to come see my friend John and finally convinced they're like we don't want to go see your friend. You know heart passed him in a movie star. Forget the woman's name but they end up taking half that's primarily. She's a movie star. Take a cab to this bar in Chicago where he was playing and he's you know the name of it. Was it like empty bottle or something. Like I'd be gross. Not There Anymore. The fifth peg. I think you're in our rich. Yep they were. He was finishing set. That's where Roger Ebert initially wrote this review that put him on the map. Everts also part of wild. Yeah just very very Chicago Straight Chicago. Yeah but then they. So he's cleaning. The you know the the chairs around the tables and this rockstar comes in with a movie star and then I wanna see your stuff. Can you take the chairs on any so? He plays like Sam Stone an angel from Montgomery. And they're like. Can you play those all one more time? And they're like that just kind of their friends to this day. Yeah kind of launched. His career took him to New York. I think at that point he was mailman. He was yeah. He was working as a mailman which is very cute. Yeah writing a song delivering mail in Chicago so The last category and I think yeah. So there's so much influence that we can see from artists both who were contemporaries but were around before him seems to be influenced by him all the way up to some of the the country musicians and songwriters that we see today. The last category is does my mom know who this is. No really not although by his karate. Central texts work before. Do you mind during but my dad does have an album in our basement so he knew but my mom did not my mom resounding yes. Why Oh really Oh yes and no hesitation not I think so. Yeah my mom knows who jump Ryan is but like I said he really fits the category of what my mom listens to like. You know little feat lows lova funny now. That's Tom Petty like that's all. They're all circling the same type of style. And like yeah. I could especially that last time that we were listening to that. You've got gold song. I could see my mom hearing that and being like yes and that's probably why I've heard angel from Montgomery to probably heard his version and hers just because of that growing George. Does your mom know who John Brennan. Yeah my mom has really good taste in music. But I don't think it was a fan of his necessarily but she she knew of him. Yeah Yeah sometimes. That's the most important category because it's just about. Does the average person know about this artist? And that can be damning. No that's his biggest weakness in all of this is just name. Recognition name recognition is not there but a lot of musicians vote Bob Dylan gets ballot. I don't know if you use it. In every member of Aerosmith gets him hell. It was one of those that people would probably if they don't usually they're like well we're going to vote for John Young people who wouldn't normally who just abstain. They're like who cares about these kids. John's in their vote once through John. Brennan MC Five. There's nothing stop you from voting for one act and it would be counted. Yep Stewart verdicts. Okay should John Inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame. Will he went and we'll be this year all right. Here's what I'm going to say. I have really enjoyed my time with John. I have your parental my time. I really have I think like I think he's really talented. I don't know that he's famous enough to almost be in the rock and Roll Hall of fame being that. I'm much more familiar with many of his contemporaries and I can't draw exactly a straight line from him to do you know what I mean like. I think he's very good. I just don't know I mean should he? I wouldn't be mad. I think yes but I don't know that he will. I guess is what I'm saying. I say yes should he? I wouldn't be angry if he got in and then do I think he will. I do not think so. I I think maybe someday unless there's something kind of I mean who knows. This is probably going to come back to be. We're going to be playing tape of me being like no no no angel from from this year's induction death words playing with John. Reid Jackson is doing an awesome. Dance in effect down as the angel could really be a wildest sermon of inductees this year. Yes well but he does in the background living because truly the wildest card as far as nominees concerned so to me. I don't know if it were but then what do I know? I only know what I know from this podcast which is more than most people. But I don't I I don't know that he ever well and if he does I would say oh my. Gosh I can't believe I'm like not this year for sure maybe ten years from now maybe like ten years from now when I dunno surged. Simpson is running the all known. That's my uninformed semi informed opinion. George George it's hard because I just don't trust of humanity. I mean I think he absolutely should if I mean if there if it's made if there's musicians American musicians who are made to be celebrated its people who are from the beginning till now keeping the same kind of integrity and vision I think he will. Because I think there's been this big wave of momentum behind him recently. If it's going to happen I think it's going to be this year. Awhile stiff competition. It is always alive because you deserve that kind of moment and also George I will say I will caveat that with to say I think it was going to happen. It would be this year but sadly do not believe it's going to be this year it could you know. I think he has an outside shot especially because I I'm on the ballot We don't know how we have. Voters respond to him. We do know that musicians love him. He's a musician's musician is he. Two Countries he to folk. I mean I don't think you can be to folk for the Rock Hall. Honestly Right which bias you've made tributary is open. I agree all the like you have to. If you want this to be something worth wild yeah you have to demand. You're right right and I think he is given the moniker of being country. Which we know was not allowed but folk is you know and I think he's way more focused agree I accident. I think he should get in. If not for just the influence of people who so many people who are in will he get in? I think he will get in because I think he has the amount of respect that is required to get in going against the lack of fame and name recognition. I don't think it'll be this year. I worry that it will be immediately posthumous Oh is that that might be what it takes. Hey didn't work for Whitney. No this is crazy. I might have worked if Whitney died now. I mean if that makes any sense like we have different from what it was back. When Whitney died at any rate. Yeah I I always gotta bring up my faves. The there is a there is a. I was listening to on the way here and there was a quote one of the songs that I was like. Oh you know. This is kind of like what sums it up and he said You know I could have me a million more friends. All I'd have to change is my point of view so I think that to me. Is You get more votes right. Fundamentally different person right. I'm glad he's not if that's what takes not getting into the hall. Keep some John Bryan. Then they can go fuck themselves. I think ten years was about on point. It could happen sooner if if he dies or gets very sick. I don't know it feels like there's something has to happen. That would a groundswell of support that you know would be created. Yeah all right. Let's say he gets inducted though all right so it happens this year? Who inducted him? I mean Bruce Probably Press. I mean that'd be that'd be cool or Dylan. I think would do it for him. Which is if they could get dylan to one of those ceremonies again. They would they would go nuts and doing what probably think you probably will. Okay or the young guys. Yeah back or the accused in that world. I think they I think they did it. Together in unison. What if Dylan Yeah? I mean he's kind of like the has that kind of respect I think that they would and then it could also be Bonnie Raitt or it could be like Emily Harris or it could I mean. These are all people who have shown up in participated in the hall. It really feels like the doors wide open to just about anybody that is you know you make a good point of the Dylan factor. Which is that if they could get Bob Dylan to one of these ceremonies. I think that everybody would be what what do we have to do. Do you think they've cooked the books you think they can't say that here on the and then okay? Let's say he's inducted what the artis usually play three songs. What three songs do they put three songs? Can I name Sam Okay? San-suu Sam Stone. I mean we just I would. It would definitely not be good as gold right is that that's on gold good as gold. Those three that's what I think they would play. I'm curious what his top three on spotify. Good Q I saw him. He played this a benefit at the hotel recently and he played for. Everybody plays four song. Okay well this is yeah he gets. He is ultimately in charge. You know he played two new ones. I forgot I just realized as I said that. Okay so probably not those. But he played all the best which is kind of a deep cut. But it's a beautiful song a wish you love is I wish you and angel from Montgomery well On spotify. They don't list them in order of plays but I'll read them. In order of most played songs. Their number one most played song is in spite of ourselves. Number two is angels. Which is what what does that. We played the song from the late nineties with the woman. Okay yeah that's a Like someone talks him like Bonnie Raider Emmylou Harris or you know. Get them out there do that. I'd love it would be appropriate. Then we got number two angel from Montgomery way less listens. The top in spite of ourselves has thirteen million listens for Montgomery has five and a half million wonder what that is if it was like in a movie or something. Yeah if someone took sweet revenge that had to be in TV show. That's on their sweet. Revenge is the number three. Most played Song Rockville stone. The flag win still sweet without a number four is clay pigeons and then with three hundred twenty one thousand. That's it do. I just called to say I love you. And that's from the most recent. It was brand new spotify singles October. Third it just came out a beautiful version of that song a leaning. If he gets inducted. Do you WANNA go. Yeah Great and then we're going to regret this induction that'd be that'd be like Def Leppard. Seeing them at the opry was kind of like okay. Well he's healthy Of course this is making this pilgrimage. Straight up you're like I'M GONNA go see John Pine at the opry on on New Year's Eve I knew full. Stop Are you going on your own. You take on my own. I have a friend. Who lives there? Okay see so won't be totally Solo but at the show. I'll be the show. You're going to be by yourself. You're gonNA openly weep. Oh Yeah it's going to be great and that's New Year's Eve are you. Is that like at midnight? He's going to be playing. I love a lot of like Nashville guests. So maybe as bell place. That'll be incredible. Incredible so great rock and Roll Hall of fame. What a moment that would be for him. Yeah Pretty Wild. I mean I ever be honest. It would be one of those times when like the hall actually opens a lot of people up to a person to harnessed. I mean it'd be like how I learned about sister. Rosetta Tharp last year. It could be. That would be the moment where I'd be like. Whoa this guy should have some honorary title like that right like the Oscars. I mean there's honorary and there's some categories are side Kenya special induction. Yeah Yeah I mean he could be. They could decide to induct him as a songwriter in the non performer category. But I think that is dismissing the fact that a performer. Right right. But they've done that before they could put them in mutual excellence but I think I think they have to give them a shot in the regular category because that's where he belongs on. So that was our John Bryan episode with George McAuliffe. We hope you enjoyed listening to it. And you know go seek out his music and listen to it. 'cause he was really a great one of a kind artists.

Who Cares About the Rock Hall?: Remembering John Prine

"Hi everybody welcome to. Who Cares about the Rock Hall? A podcast about the rock and Roll Hall of fame. I am your host joke was Allah. We are going to take a break this week. In terms of our regular programming. If you've been we have been doing Corentin playlists for the past few weeks and we will continue that most likely next week but we felt it was necessary to do a special episode this week given that we lost the great singer. Songwriter. John Pine He. Unfortunately if you haven't read the news. He contracted covert nineteen and he passed away on the seventh and it's a tragic loss. He was a beloved musician. Both the millions of fans and very beloved within the musical community. He was not an inductive of the rock and Roll Hall of fame but he was nominated for the first time for the two thousand nineteen class. He did not get in but because we were doing our podcast at the time we did do an episode entirely devoted to him and we had the very funny comedian and writer. Jorge McAuliffe who is a huge John Prime Fan and we really liked talking about John Prime and learning about him and so we wanted to re air that episode. As some of you know we've come a long way in terms of our production value on this show so back then. The sound maybe. It wasn't great. The levels weren't good and we didn't drop in songs so I went back through the episode and gave it a Polish and here it is remastered. John prien episode. I will say a trigger warning. We do kind of candidly talk about what could happen induction wise if he died us. Oh that feels insensitive to you. Just a reminder that this was recorded in the fall of two thousand eighteen and we were just kind of talking about the future. It's obviously very sad. It's a sad day. It's a sad week but I hope you guys can find some joy in listening to this here. It is our John Print episode with George McAuliffe. How did you get into John? Prime I think I potentially through Bruce Big Fan. Yeah because I knew that they were both kind of labeled the new deal and there was this whole school of saw looking temporary of Bruce springsteen is yeah okay now. Price first album was seventy one and what Bruce's was like seventy three. Yeah and very different shows when people are labeling things like rambling to find a new too wide net. Yeah so I knew about that and then I would think there are some interview ten years. Where springsteen showed his IPOD playlist very popular feature to do with musicians in presidents. Yeah Yeah exactly. And he had a few John Prime songs. Like I need to listen to this and I listened to clay pigeons which is actually a blaze Foley cover. But it's so John. Prion these days to get back in the saddle again. The Clay during the day is dad. Carbondale say and then that just sent me down this rabbit hole. And just like the depth of this person and you know and his eye and his sil- writing and it was just kind of the opposite of what a lot of artists that I know how they kind of go about their work and how I like to think that I do connect to you. John Cryan absolutely what what? What do you mean by his songwriting style? Well it's just like Just the lack of ambition but also back no but with a with a strong point of view. It's like I have this point of view that Burns in me and I'm going to be letting it out every so often the other right so that's going to happen throughout a lifetime but not having to be like. This is going to happen a thousand times right now and. I'm going to need to figure out how to do this. And I need Kamata. Make some changes to make sure this happens kind of just sat back and he's more into you know eating meatloaf on Tuesdays and Nashville than like focusing on his career. So he'll have like these large gaps in between albums and they'll come out and it's unbelievable. It's like this treasure trove. It just gets you know. He seems he seems focused on the work. As that. Know as what it is. Yeah he's seems very unassuming. I wouldn't call him a star. No no not at all I mean. He's having a resurgence. Now because of Jason Isabel sturges. Simpson these new great country not really kind of aggressive country type people with like middle finger to Nashville Nelson. And those guys were back in the seventies almost like punk contrary if you will that. That's an apps but they really connect to them because they know the depth and they can kind of see that like I call like an empty way of style of writing. Where's just felt very deeply and they all kind of have that this music sad a law Zimmerman Collie it's kind of like country melancholy. That's accurate and it's also very funny like there's a sense of humor in it inbetween between it like you'll almost like a country. Randy Newman. Maybe not that funny. Not As many. Yeah he doesn't like tickle the ivories Broadway flair but in a sense of of witty and you know subversive songwriting and it can kind of stop on a dime like He. Has the song called my Mexican home. Which is just him describing his home in the summer. Basically with all the details and then at the end he talks about his dad passing away on the porch and how his friend sat out there in this Mexican home and Drank Bourbon and cried. But it's like the three act play almost where it ends with this moment. And if you didn't stick through that first part you wouldn't have such a vision of this moment. I don't apologize. Have to now theft and yet prion has been eligible since ninety seven. I was surprised. I didn't realize he had been eligible for that long. And this is the first time he's been nominated. It was really an out of the blue nomination because it felt like well. If he hasn't been considered yet why would it come up now? I think it has something to do with the fact of this new album. That came out this year. Did very well got a lot of attention. Had A lot of people attached to it like you said I know. Dan Auerbach from The black keys was like heavily involved in like song writing and appearing on the album so the hall does not beyond the twenty five year eligibility. There's no real criteria for y someone gets into the hall. I have put together though my own list of criteria that I think lines up pretty well with the people who've been inducted and I think if you do well in these categories you have a decent shot induction so we're GONNA go through these categories With John Pride We're GONNA start off with critical acclaim. I think he is a critics artists. Yeah you know. He is someone who especially because of like that too. I feel like his type of songwriting. Is like a critics dream. That's what they want. They want sophisticated witty. I mean you take that versus like Def leppard right right right so world as we wish it was a lot of comedy and music and things that I love if I like something. It doesn't bode well for it financially. And there's a lot of depth and he's received well critically maybe not given the over the top adoration that someone like. Bruce springsteen gets or Bob Dylan gets but I think is still but those two guys give him that like Bob Dylan listened to him. And you know it's mid Western mind. Chip trips to the degree is what he said about John Bryan late Mid Western mine trips driving Ryan's music. Yeah wow yeah he he's. He's such a musician's musician. Credibility is John Prion the Midwest. Bruce springsteen not John Cougar Mountain. He came up through the old town. School of folk. Yeah Corcoran's is in Chicago. Was An old place called the Earl of town and a lot of the he started there and I'm was playing in Chicago. Yeah I did suburbs of Chicago killed. No I didn't valor todd at Old Town school folk music and he learned the tar there and wild. He's kind of considered the main guy out of his. There's a crop folk musicians who came out of Chicago by that time. None of them as famous him but like there is kind of a crop. Anything Steve Goodman Goodman. Who's one of his collaborators. I have long hailed John Mellencamp as the bursting scene of the Mid West. We'll see that's another one. When people compare Bon Jovi and Bruce Mike when they say mellencamp and Bruce I think we're GONNA may be a different frequency. I mean I would say that. Maybe I think for the working man. You know kind of thing I do think John Mellencamp Scott route. I think all that I get it the kind of meter going from going from to count pretty common people today. Atkinson hair kind of thing. I was just going to say going from Bruce to mellencamp if you did that same difference but going the other direction away from Mellon. Cav You get the president. I think maybe they are kind of similarly length the same amount of way but just in different directions you said he sees himself between Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. Because it's such a country sound can also hurt people with his kind of Wit and in-depth. Yeah he has a country sounding and that can be a turnoff and they won't give it a shot might be one of the reasons. He didn't make the ballot until now because the hall. If there's any genre lines that are drawn it feels like country is one of those if your country you're not rock nearly everything else. Yes now we sometimes bring up Dali Parton with we. Sometimes bring up this This rolling stone list because if that's one way to gauge Five hundred greatest albums of all time right two thousand twelve edition sure. Either one is fine. There were minor changes between each learned last week so sorry John Prien on the list of five hundred greatest albums his debut which is just called John From Eighteen. Seventy one and that is on the list are we always. GonNa have you guys. Tried to guess what number that's fun. Oh Yeah Okay. What number do I think okay? I think it's out of the five hundred I think it's probably I think it's in the high three hundreds. I think I'm GONNA say three now. I'm say three forty seven mid three hundred seven. George would anything say three eighty higher? I'd like to as much as I'd like to. I'd lived to take it back and say one dollars. That's the only time I'm ever GONNA use that joke. I promise that's true. Yes it is kidding prime coming in. Oh looks like I made myself laugh. Peron coming in at four fifty. Which is I mean that album thing with it though is like he's so young and the song sound better when he sings them now voices into the kind of character. Yeah he's persona. Yeah but the actual songs there may be no start to finish album and has that strong mean. It's unbelievable. Yeah I I'd say it is a testament to the strength of that album the fact that it's even on that list. There's not a lot of this country on that list but yeah just so good. Yeah and I you know I. We'll transition into the next category which is classic albums and I think that is one where definitively classic trying to cause. I don't know a ton about John. Prime especially before the nomination announcement was trying to figure out what his songs were. I pulled his greatest hits just to Kinda get an aisle. It was a lot of his Jessica. Alba like a lot of from that out and then you know the albums that came after that. I'm not sure I mean I think well received but I don't know if I would put any of the other ones in the category of like always in the conversation of light greatest albums. Yeah probably yeah. I don't think so and you know. He was putting out albums on nearly every year for the entirety of the seventy S. Some of them were record. Companies seemed like they had their hand in it. Because when you stripped down there amazing But then some of them can have this Twang. It's like it's not him? It's like Yeah they'll have like three songs on those that are still unless production. He is probably probably benefits from less production. Wise last two albums are so good. And they're like in his top five probably because his most recent albums you'd put it in his top by how so he's a fine wine primes and Jesus the missing years another one. I put in there okay. But they're not gonNA make those kind of lists but they're they're great and talking about his recent work. He continued to perform after having major surgery because he had some sort of cancer and then removed part of his neck. Yeah well not. Cancer changed his appearance and his voice. You had to learn to not only perform speak again. Yeah but is doing. It changed it but he still. We still pretty great. The next category is iconic songs slash recognizable songs. And if I'm being perfectly honest the average person I don't think knows any John Prime for like the angel from Montgomery mainly from mainly road And I guess the other ones I throw in maybe from that first album there is a song called Sam Sto. Yeah Sam's own long wide and family you after serving the calm and has a line. What is it? There's a hole in daddy's arm where the money goes. Jesus Christ Holand money. Jesus dries bad for another. Big One can't do. It can't do it. I don't have it in me. Paradise and a Western Kentucky where my parents were born and there's a backwards down. It's all been many times to play them live to like. I've never been at a concert where people are laughing. And then you just like pin drop out and then everybody says silent for taking song from. He did an album of mostly covers except for one song in spite of ourselves. This ninety eight. Maybe ninety nine way we're wrong. It's him and Iris dement. Nineteen Ninety Eight. This is where I feel like. A sense of humor is on full display. She don't array already. She thinks crossing your legs is funny. She books down nose add money. She gets it on like the Easter Bunny. She's my baby honey. Never GonNA letter go George. Are there any other tracks that you would point to as being notable recognizable all? It's hard to think about. You know for me. It's your choice. Choice is what's your gold. Sometimes when I hear is his record versions of Mike. Still I still like it. But when you hear springsteen songs like that too were down or a different song in the heart of it is is unreal gets over-produced and lose a something a lot of production on it. It was kind of like a John. Thiel yes well did he. Yeah it's probably more heartfelt when he's just on the dodge. Yeah yeah it totally. The next category is commercial success. Which you know. He's not he's not selling millions and millions of albums the last album that he released in two thousand eighteen. The tree forgiveness was number five which is shocking that's because that's the only people who are still buying Carson last five or so years where it's like. Wow rush finally had their first number one album. Yeah Yeah of course weird. Al Yankovic had his first number one album. So many of those people who've been around for a long time who finally got number one albums combination that doesn't mean that they've connected to a new audience too because they've been able to hold onto something. In addition to having loyal fans and the music industry failing that bay says audiences have like quadrupled in the last five years from. Jason is bell and start. Wow okay. That's pretty cool. Yeah but I wouldn't give him a ton of points in the Commercial Success Cap de forget that because I'm so locked in I'm in my own. Yeah you're not even thinking. Longevity is the next category you know he was like I said. He was putting out albums nearly every year in the in the seventies and I feel like I mean you you gotta give them credit like what we were saying with Isabelle and Simpson and inputting album this year. That people like I mean. That's that's a pretty incredible. Yeah the longevity Zehr if we're talking about his artistic peak you know we're talking about maybe nine or ten years seventy one to eighty or something just looking on when his albums stopping frequent when they stopped charting. But I think props have to be given for the fact that he put out a recording this year. That got a lot of good you notice similar to it warns. Yvonne was a similar. He has last three albums. Were as great as those initial initial surge even but it was at a different time right but also going through like for someone to go through like you know disco and Sin Alternative Rock and whatever. The nineties was after that. I mean there's something to this war artists and there's fashion and then there's the real thing right and the songs shine through and he never violated his principles or what what he stood for right which is pretty cool. Doesn't that trying to hold onto it with some bizarre surgeries and the next category is influence innovation. I think this might be his strongest one of his stronger categories. Because we've already talked about people like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan Bonnie Raitt and creeping into now Circle Simpson and Jason Isabel. And there's weird ones that pop up to their bio. Yeah I definitely hear that. Yeah there's an interview with Roger Waters From Pink Floyd where they asked him about radiohead and they were like. What do you think of radiohead? And he went. I listened to it. I didn't feel anything. Let's talk about John. Pry and he was like I want you guys really great and I think he makes music that speaks to me and it was an interview or they just wanted to get his opinion on the new. Yeah Yeah what about John Bryan guys great. Yeah it's while it's like you have to find them at the right time and age. I don't know something. I don't know if I would've listened to youth. He is not for the youth. You have to have a little life in. You have to have a little bit a life underneath your belt To appreciate a a wine leg that when he was I mean he was like so young when he when he wrote those early. If there's something I think I looked back at a lot of artists and now you're almost not allowed to have enough or you're so guarded that it takes people until they're in their thirties to be able to experience enough life to bring their their experience. Yeah the art. Yeah and while it didn't used to be twenty and you had enough right in Vietnam or I think you grew up faster and people are having now. I think Chris Christopherson founded or founded found. Yeah he's got a McDonald's he's that's an incredible story and Kris Kristofferson. Excuse me back it up. What so Kris Kristofferson like in a star is born found? He was just at a show. I think he was with Steve Goodman had made a little success his friend in Chicago and he was on tour. Maybe with Chris Christopherson and he kept saying you have to come see my friend John and finally convinced they're like we don't want to go see your friend. You know heart passed him in a movie star. Forget the woman's name but they end up taking perhaps that's primarily. She's a movie star. Take a cab to this bar in Chicago where he was playing and he's you know the name of it. Was it like empty bottle or something. Like I'd be gross. Not There Anymore. The fifth peg. I think you're in Armitage. Yep they were. He was finishing set. That's where Roger Ebert initially wrote this review that put him on the map. Everts also part of wild. Yeah just very very Chicago Straight Chicago. Yeah but then they. So he's cleaning. The you know the the chairs around the tables and this rockstar comes in with a movie star and then I wanna see your stuff. Can you take the chairs on any so? He plays like Sam Stone an angel for Montgomery. And they're like. Can you play those all one more time? And they're like that just kind of their friends to this day. Yeah kind of launched. His career took him to New York. I think at that point he was mailman. He was yeah. He was working as a mailman which is very cute. Yeah writing a song delivering mail in Chicago so The last category and I think yeah. So there's so much influence that we can see from artists both who were contemporaries but were around before him seems to be influenced by him all the way up to some of the the country musicians and songwriters that we see today. The last category is does my mom know who this is. No really not although by his karate. Central texts work before. Do you mind during but my dad does have an album in our basement so he knew but my mom did not my mom resounding yes. Why Oh really Oh yes and no hesitation not I think so. Yeah my mom knows who jump Ryan is but like I said he really fits the category of what my mom listens to like. You know little feat lows lova funny now. That's Tom Petty like that's all. They're all circling the same type of style. And like yeah. I could especially that last time that we were listening to that. You've got gold song. I could see my mom hearing that and being like yes and that's probably why I've heard you angel from Montgomery to probably heard his version and hers just because of that growing George. Does your mom know who John Brennan. Yeah my mom has really good taste in music. But I don't think it was a fan of his necessarily but she she knew of him. Yeah Yeah sometimes. That's the most important category because it's just about. Does the average person know about this artist? And that can be damning. No that's his. Biggest weakness in all of this is justly recognition name. Recognition is not there but a lot of musicians vote Bob Dylan gets ballot. I don't know if you've heard it in. Every member of Aerosmith gets hell. It was one of those that people would probably if they don't usually they're like well we're going to vote for John Young people who wouldn't normally who just abstain. They're like who cares about these kids. John's in their vote once through John. Brennan MC Five. There's nothing stop you from voting for one act and it would be counted. Yep Stewart verdicts. Okay should John Inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame. Will he went and we'll be this year all right. Here's what I'm going to say. I have really enjoyed my time with John. I have your parental my time. I really have I think like I think he's really talented. I don't know that he's famous enough to almost be in the rock and Roll Hall of fame being that. I'm much more familiar with many of his contemporaries and I can't draw exactly a straight line from him to do you know what I mean like. I think he's very good. I just don't know I mean should he? I wouldn't be mad. I think yes but I don't know that he will. I guess is what I'm saying. I say yes should he? I wouldn't be angry if he got in and then do I think he will. I do not think so. I I think maybe someday unless there's something kind of I mean who knows. This is probably going to come back to be. We're going to be playing tape of me being like no no no angel from from this year's induction death words playing with John. Reid Jackson is doing an awesome. Dance in effect down as the angel could really be a wildest sermon of inductees this year. Yes well but he does in the background living because truly the wildest card as far as nominees concerned so to me. I don't know if it were but then what do I know? I only know what I know from this podcast which is more than most people. But I don't I I don't know that he ever well and if he does I would say oh my. Gosh I can't believe I'm like not this year for sure maybe ten years from now maybe like ten years from now when I dunno surged. Simpson is running the all known. That's my uninformed semi informed opinion. George George it's hard because I just don't trust of humanity. I mean I think he absolutely should if I mean if there if it's made if there's musicians American musicians who are made to be celebrated its people who are from the beginning till now keeping the same kind of integrity and vision I think he will. Because I think there's been this big wave of momentum behind him recently. If it's going to happen I think it's going to be this year. Awhile stiff competition. It is always alive because you deserve that kind of moment and also George I will say I will caveat that with to say I think it was going to happen. It would be this year but sadly do not believe it's going to be this year it could you know. I think he has an outside shot especially because I I'm on the ballot We don't know how we have. Voters respond to him. We do know that musicians love him. He's a musician's musician is he. Two Countries he to folk. I mean I don't think you can be to folk for the Rock Hall. Honestly Right which bias you've made tributary is open. I agree all the AMC's like you have to. If you want this to be something worth wild yeah you have to have right right right and I think he is given the moniker of being country which we know was not allowed but folk is you know and I think he's way more focused agree. I accident I think he should get in. If not for just the influence of people who so many people who are in will he get in? I think he will get in because I think he has the amount of respect that is required to get in going against the lack of fame and name recognition. I don't think it'll be this year. I worry that it will be immediately posthumous Oh is that that might be what it takes. Hey didn't work for Whitney. No this is crazy. I might have worked if Whitney died now. I mean if that makes any sense like we have different from what it was back. When Whitney died at any rate. Yeah I I always gotta bring up my faves. The there is a there is a listening to on the way here and there was a quote one of the songs that I was like. Oh you know. This is kind of like what sums it up and he said You know I could have me a million more friends. All I'd have to change is my point of view so I think that to me. Is You get more votes right. Fundamentally different person right. I'm glad he's not if that's what takes not getting into the hall. Keep some John Bryan. Then they can go fuck themselves. I think ten years was about on point. It could happen sooner if if he dies or gets very sick. I don't know it feels like there's something has to happen. That would a groundswell of support that you know would be created. Yeah all right. Let's say he gets inducted though all right so it happens this year? Who inducted him? I mean Bruce Probably Press. I mean that'd be that'd be cool or Dylan. I think would do it for him. Which is if they could get dylan to one of those ceremonies again. They would they would go nuts and doing what probably probably well. Okay or the young guys. Yeah back or the accused in that world. I think they I think they did it. Together in unison. What if Dylan Yeah? I mean he's kind of like the has that kind of respect I think that they would and then it could also be Bonnie Raitt or it could be like Emily Harris or it could I mean. These are all people who have shown up in participated in the hall. It really feels like the doors wide open to just about anybody that is you know you make a good point of the Dylan factor. Which is that if they could get Bob Dylan to one of these ceremonies. I think that everybody would be what what do we have to do. Do you think they've cooked the books you think they can't say that here on the and then okay? Let's say he's inducted what the artis usually play three songs. What three songs do they put three songs? Can I name Sam Okay? San-suu Sam Stone. I mean we just I would. It would definitely not be good as gold right is that that's on gold good as gold. Those three that's what I think they would play. I'm curious what his top three on spotify. Good Q I saw him. He played this a benefit at the hotel recently and he played for. Everybody plays four song. Okay well this is yeah he gets. He is ultimately in charge. You know he played two new ones. I forgot I just realized as I said that. Okay so probably not those. But he played all the best which is kind of a deep cut. But it's a beautiful song. I wish you love is I wish you and Angel from Montgomery well On spotify. They don't list them in order of plays but I'll read them. In order of most played songs. Their number one most played song is in spite of ourselves. Number two is angels which is what what is that. We played the song from the late nineties with the woman. Okay yeah that's a Like someone talks him like Bonnie Raider Emmylou Harris or you know. Get them out there. Do I'd love that. I'd love it would be appropriate. Then we got number two angel from Montgomery way less listens. The top in spite of ourselves has thirteen million listens for Montgomery has five and a half million wonder what that is if it was like in a movie or something. Yeah if someone took sweet revenge that had to be in TV show. That's on their sweet. Revenge is the number three. Most played Song Rockville stone. The flag win still sweet without a number four is clay pigeons and then with three hundred twenty one thousand. That's it do. I just called to say I love you. And that's from the most recent. It was brand new spotify singles October. Third it just came out a beautiful version of that song a leaning. If he gets inducted. Do you WANNA go. Yeah Great and then we're going to regret this induction that'd be that'd be like Def Leppard. Seeing them at the opera was kind of like okay. Well he's healthy Of course this is making this pilgrimage. Straight up you're like I'M GONNA go see John Pine at the opry on on New Year's Eve I knew full. Stop Are you going on your own. You take on my own. I have a friend. Who lives there? Okay see so won't be totally Solo but at the show. I'll be the show. You're going to be by yourself. You're gonNA openly weep. Oh Yeah it's going to be great and that's New Year's Eve are you. Is that like at midnight? He's going to be playing. I love a lot of like Nashville guests. So maybe as bell place. That'll be incredible. Incredible so great rock and Roll Hall of fame. What a moment that would be for him. Yeah Pretty Wild. I mean I ever be honest. It would be one of those times when like the hall actually opens a lot of people up to a person to harnessed. I mean it'd be like how I learned about sister. Rosetta Tharp last year. It could be. That would be the moment where I'd be like. Whoa this guy should have some honorary title like that right like the Oscars. I mean there's honorary and there's some categories are side Kenya special induction. Yeah Yeah I mean he could be. They could decide to induct him as a songwriter in the non performer category. But I think that is dismissing the fact that a performer. Right right. But they've done that before they could put them in mutual excellence but I think I think they have to give them a shot in the regular category because that's where he belongs on. So that was our John Bryan episode with George McAuliffe. We hope you enjoyed listening to it. And you know go seek out his music and listen to it. 'cause he was really a great one of a kind artists.

COVID fearmongering at an all-time high. "Wear the damn mask!?" Mayor Gallego may not be telling the truth about COVID in Phoenix...

"Serve. As Corona. Cages continue to decline. The media continues to outright. Ladies and gentlemen children of all ages. To not. Certain. TV Arazi. By. Is Receding. We all know about it. and. That's why businesses are opening backed up. People are are going back and forth. The most people are venturing out of their houses more and more. Realizing that they're fair mongering. Is No longer working. The media has renewed its it's blitz. Since they can't show you. Evidence of Corona viruses dangers. They've gone with the old standby. They'll just make things up there lying. Every headline. Screams about the news spike. The government is announcing a new restrictions because of the spike. Mainstream media. They're talking about new cases every day now like new infection new cases. It's amazing. It is not just on a corona victories over the last few weeks. We have seen the media just outright lying. Got Senator Tammy Duckworth. She's out there. Claiming that president trump spent all of his time during the the speech. IN THE DAKOTAS! Talking about debt traders. A flat out lie. As, a matter of fact, we talked about that. I think the president trump's mount rushmore speeches, probably the best in his career. And the media they didn't show experts. They didn't they didn't. They didn't explain they just lied about it. It was dark. And foreboding. Establish media. Within seconds of anything positive that president trump says or does. They. They come up with an alternative conclusion. Trump, derangement syndrome is real. They hate president trump. So the truth. Does it matter? It just doesn't matter to them. You've got this new woken out there. You've got. You've got the New York. Times and you've got the The Washington Post. You've got USA, today. Printing lies. Struck me over the weekend. Just how odd and just how bizarre this is! You had the USA Today fact, check whether or not the Democrats the south started the civil war and whether Democrats you know gave us the KKK. Was the Glue Klux Klan. Really the the militant arm of the of the Democrat. Party Fos what. Explanation is was weak. Thin. You've got politicians going on and absolutely lie just ball face. We're used to politicians doing it. But even. Accessible for them. And the media backing their play. You had the the president Big News shocking news today in the it just cut all you just make breaking news all over the place I've. My telephone was ringing off the hook yesterday morning all God. President trump is wearing a mask. Off What does this mean we? Let's go to Joe Biden and get his response. seriously. was in a hospital. He was in a hospital, so he decided to wear a mask then, but it's. It's a big deal, and obviously the media stars lying about that. You know. What we're watching here. Is the media absolutely trying to shape the public view? What we're watching here is a Democrat party trying to shake earth shape the public view and there's really nothing wrong with that I. Guess except for the fact that they're lying to do it. What's going to be the cost of that? How how will be going to be able to trust the media ever again? How will we going to be able to trust some politicians ever again and it? Is this all out blitz right now? We've got Democrats. We've got never-trumpers. We've got the media as all scaremongering especially on the corona, virus. We Have A. Local mayor. who was on the news went national over the weekend. A with comments that she made. And I'm sitting back and I. Actually called some friends that are in the in the media. And I'm like seriously. What are we watching here? Can you give me some numbers? A West Wind God and our hospitals. Can you give me some numbers around the state of a? M, one of them came through. And I'm looking at these numbers. And I'm listen to. You know what the Governor Ducey is saying. I'm listening to what these mayors are saying, and it doesn't add up. Then I'm like. Am I crazy? Am I crazy, or has the rest of the world gone crazy. Because this is not adding up. We have more reports. A big report came out on masks. Saying that basically. You're not gonNA, help you. When it comes to the covert and you might be make yourself sick. There's a lot of reports coming in for people who have to wear the mass is seven eight hours a day and they're starting to get sick. But at the same time we had the media most in the media screaming. To wear the damn mask. I feel like I am a man of time I. Feel like I'm the one that's bizarre. I go into stores, and everybody's masked up and they're. They're not giving me quite to Evil I. You know. I might be. I might be experiencing black perfect here. But. It's I'm the only one. Everybody has got the designer mass this new thing. What happens if everybody is reacting based on a lie. Mayor Kate Guy Eggo. We're going to talk about her comments. We're going to talk about the lie that she towed nationally I. Don't even know if she's got any blowback about it I'm GonNa have to I. Guess what I might be the blowback. But what we're watching here is disturbing because we have lies being told in the media fan inflames that people are frightened in place, and that is the biggest problem. We'll go there at six eighteen. You are listening to the conservative salk guests. Am Your master. James T Harris. Corona cases are continuing to. Decline. In the media is outright lying about it, not just the media, but also politicians. Now you could argue it to James. You're wrong about this corona cases they're. They're increasing well I. Guess we should define cases. I mean the left keeps moving the goal post. Ultimately was important is how many people are dying from this? and. The answer to that question is not very many when you compare it to other pandemics. And yet. Mayor Cake Guy Eggo. Mayor of Phoenix. Arizona supposed to be the hot spot. Arizona is a red state, and is it an amazing? How how this how the pandemic has spread, and the numbers are increasing in primarily red states. Texas Arizona Florida Look at this headline Florida largest date increase of Eddie state since pandemic fifteen thousand on Sunday done turn. Mayor Guy Ego. On on a Sunday morning. On the Sunday morning talkers. She was MS actually on MSNBC and. She said she said this. It has been such a tough situation out here. I have constituents who waited? Eight hours thirteen hours to get a test and you know many people. Won't wait that long unless they desperately need one. It is quite hot. We are predicting temperatures that could hit a hundred seventeen degrees this weekend Maricopa County, which is our county. Public Health Agency just announced that. They are going to be getting refrigerated trucks. Because the ABRAZOS healthcare system has run out of. Beds is very scary out here. I wish we had given mayors the authority to act earlier you are out of more space, so the ABRAZOS healthcare system has run out of more beds, and the county is getting refrigerated trucks, not throughout the county, but but it one very important system. Chuck, Todd. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I'M GONNA. Go back to what you just said. You're running out of mortgage beds. This is what. This is what the Queen Kate said on national TV, giving the the net now known the nation thing, so we got people dying leftover. Right out here. Because the requests for refrigerated trucks. Because we're running out of more beds. Meaning people are dying. That's what you did. You can put debt people in the more. This turns out that that's not true. Brazo hospitals currently have adequate space. They had to come out and say we'll see. We were just doing this as a protective measure. We were doing this sort of in case. Just, in case you want to be prepared, but presently a we do have enough in our morgues. If somebody dies from the cove it. But this is how it works. She got record up again. Raw she goes on national TV and talks about she's scared. She goes on national TV, basically to give a Lord Ducie governor another Black Guy, he should've given the power and authority over to the mayor's so we could have done something about it. That's what she's trying to do, but in doing so she lied. It has been such a tough situation out here. I have constituents who waited? Eight hours thirteen hours to get a test and you know many people. Won't wait that long unless they desperately need one. It is quite hot. We are predicting temperatures that could hit a hundred and seventeen degrees this weekend Maricopa County, which is our county public health agency just announced that. They are going to be getting refrigerated trucks. Because the ABRAZOS healthcare system has run out of more beds is very scary out here. I wish we had given mayors the authority to act earlier your out of more space, so the ABRAZOS healthcare system has run out of beds, and the county is getting refrigerated trucks. It's not throughout the county, but it one very important his system. She's trying to La. She's lied and trying to get another shutdown. She's she's lying to embarrass the government. She's lying to get more money to misappropriate. This is the mayor of Phoenix spreading fear. It's scary out here. Wow. This is exactly what I'm talking about, and then you go out. You know people you know. Let these there watching this electees here in the valley there watching this, and then you go out and you look at restaurants and they don't have to put any type of order. Less than fifty percent capacity. They don't have to do that because people are so afraid. They're not going out. On the weekends I like to take smoking hot wife, we go around to different restaurants and stuff like that. It's almost depressing. Waitstaff all masked up I'm like where is everybody? I don't know they're afraid to come out. Makes US easier. It makes it easier for us to get some of our favorite restaurants, but my goodness. This mayor Kate. Going out talking about the so many people are dying in the valley that we've run out of more space. They gotta bring it refrigerated trucks. And, it is a flat out lie. What's amazing to people had to wait in line for hours door to get over to get the to get the test. We shouldn't have to do that. The testing is way behind the we need it should be. Here's my question. It, this virus is so deadly. Imagine a virus so deadly. You need to be tested to find out if you have it. That's what we're dealing with here. We're dealing with a nothing burger in the big scheme of things. Not Saying that Cova Nineteen is not dangerous. Not Saying that you know we should, we should be aware. And we should. Act Accordingly. According to what we think is best. We the people. But these Government lockdowns these these masks ordinance these this fearmongering ness going on for a for a virus. That is nothing near. What we even experienced. With H one. N One nothing near it. And and to compare it to the Spanish flu of Nineteen Eighteen, nineteen, thousand, nine, hundred is ludicrous. What's changed. Well! It's been weaponized by the left because they have an election to win. We'll talk about that at six thirty three. Not! Too many holes the president's private number Sean Hannity does this afternoon from one until four on five fifty KFI and on half am at ninety five point five hd two. You are listening to the conservative circus I am Ring Bastard James, to Harris. Everybody's pushing back on Mayor K. guy goes just vicious lies. She went on a blitz. Sunday! Talk shows talking about how we're running out of. Beds The hospital had to bring in every frigerator truck. and. She's telling these lies. She's telling me these lies in the face of really mismanaging a money that the federal government gave her to conduct. We have a spokesperson from the from Governor Doozy's office lower ducey dismissing the allegations. We appreciate that thoughtful conversation with Vice President Pence and and white. House core Corona virus task. Force Chief Response Coordinator. Dr Deborah burks. And we are grateful for their continued commitment to provide Arizona with support and resources as necessary. the assertion that on hospitals are are declining or deciding who lives and who dies. What concern anyone and the implication that this practice is currently taking place would be a surprise to anyone who was closely monitoring the facts and actual hospital usage, because it's simply not the case. It's amazing. The federal administration as a major focus on Phoenix and funded forty plus one test sites plus supplies. If you need a hospital bed. It's available. Hospitals are not sending older patients home to die. Phoenix Phoenix Hospital did not run out of more expands. These are three of the a big walkers. that. Mayor Kate, Kate Geigo is telling. Why. Why? At, this is the theme of the First Hour. These corona cases continue to decline well. We all go get some cases starting to rise. But that's because of the testing because of testing and. Kick out your goes on. TV, we need more testing test to get what you gave. The fads gave you money. Is it incompetence, or is it just straight up corruption that you misuse that those funds? The left is willing to use people. In order to advance their narrative, you got Steve Hilton over on Fox News Van, tastic commentary, blasting the mainstream media, and for their misinformation on the virus, but for the media facts just lines. We're so deep down into a well of laws. It is hard to even realize how dark this is. Doc It's totally Orwellian. Anderson Cooper literally calls his lying rant keeping them honest. I don't know if he's even worth trying to keep him on his. He's now effectively on Joe Biden's campaign staff, but just in case he goes. The one measure you'll never see on CNN or MSNBC is the only one that really matters the only one that is actually a fair description of what's going on, and that is that's per capita deaths per capita. This is what I have been telling you as well. There is only one statistic that really really needs to be told how many people have died? From Corona virus, and then the way they gathered those numbers. Because you remember at one point in time in this country, everybody who died died from the corona. You remember this scandal. That was uncovered. Where you had you had there were instructions. Medical Examiner they were instructed. mcdonagh's Corona Corona virus the corona that Corona Corona. For like about three or four week period. And the way to be talking about how you could you could. Probably you could legitimately take one fourth. Maybe even one third of the total numbers just reexamining. You'll find actually this guy. This guy died from a heart attack. Actually, this guy was hit by a car. around. So now. We're supposed to believe that we're supposed to be panicked. We're supposed to be frightened. Why. What's the endgame? Beside the fact that lot of these states, a lot of these municipalities are getting paid. Follow the money. What else is going on well, you know what we have an election here and this is what a is Steve? Hilton was getting at is blasting the the the mainstream media for the information about the virus. If you! WanNa know how political this is. Just look at the schools. Look at what's happening. Public schools. They're talking about not going back. You got teacher unions out there in California said. We're not going to go back unless we get this unless we get that have having nothing to do. With the corona virus, or how dangerous it is. Know what we are watching here. You know the reason why I starting off the show, the reason why the ringmaster's jazz little bit how the collar here is because all of this fearmongering. And the. Of the, media Is another attack of salt on our economy. The Democrats could not stop some states from opening. Oh, they slow the role for the states where they had control. But those red states man. They're rolling on now to do something to slow it down. Fear fear. Fear. And the mantra over weekend is you know now? I guess the the the the Cry Rally cry where the dam amass now there are hammering down on that fear fear fear. How do you live? In this type of Environment UNAFRAID. That's the question. I think what you have to do is just continue to to to. Push back, stay angry. But don't be dismiss dispirited. Because all of this is going to be over. The day after elections. We only got to put up this. For for till November and that's a long time. But we're already halfway through this year. And speaking of a November. This campaign. Biden's putting together just shaping up to be just a just right idiocy. Outright idiocy and once again the media has to lie. It ordered to keep that lie propped up. Oh! We're going to have some fun today because we're going to. We're going to continue to to talk about. How this is off fake fakery? And, maybe that can be a part of what you can use to help. Not Help yourself not. Live in fear. We have. The little rawls little Ross weekend rap coming up next. Riley is here this morning at nine fifty on fifty Kfi. Dot. FM Ninety five point five hd two. You're listening to the circus. Ringmaster James Harris to forget to be. And at the top of the hour for your chance to win, one thousand dollars is only like about fifteen minutes away. Every Friday. We tell you don't bother watching the news. Enjoy yourself your family, your friends. We will watch the news for you well. We did ask why we're all wound up today. We don't want you to be wound up.

It was kind of a slow news week, but you still got some stuff to work with, don't you? You know I wouldn't call it slow. things did pick up in the latter half of the week and but nevertheless crazy when it did finally. Crazy when the did pick up little Ross drop that Bait. Donald Trump Donna master foreign wounded soldiers, the public, still mad, he shared, it could have been much bolder. Disney, world we oak amid increase numbers, pawn guest protocol, more stringent more combat on US strips Salas Nj. Tune top right for Tucker resigned amid braids game. Roger Stone got granted clemency Lindsey. Graham wants bullet before Senate committee. NHL NBA MLB restart plant school sports caster laid structure got point man girl, rocket trump in the latest polls, so balloon the numbers, just a matter control. Show it did pick up. Did pick up. Plus you don't even changed the bits essential. You'll drop that rap with the Washington redskins and everything so now only did the Washington redskins officially announce amidst pressure from their sponsors. Fedex Nike much that stuff. After leaving two thousand thirteen, their owner Dan Snyder said he would never ever. All capital letters never ever changed the name of the team so not as forthcoming that is forthcoming. Imag even happened today. So if you got you got redskins geared. We still have that rescue and hat that. A sense. They gave us I believe I still have it. It's going to be a collector collector's item, but you can't wear it. Otherwise you will be deemed racist jokes also small update that that ship in the Navy San Diego. There were eighteen injured I believe it's now up to twenty one or twenty two that are injured. They're scary situation. one of the ships in import. They're caught fire. You had people who were the just the the images, crazy people fleeing the ship got water boats. They're trying to put the fire out. That was big news. We also wait John Travolta's wife. Preston, Kelly Preston Kelly Preston passed away what fifty seven breast cancer! That's young! That's young. She was one of those actresses that had a real budding career. I mean had shows in Jerry Maguire a couple of other movies and it looked like she was about the bust out, but this she didn't. SORTA, like Katie Holmes. Would it have in common the Church of Scientology? Don't send me. Hate Mail I'm just saying. Something about the Church of Scientology. Where where if you're a woman? You're not allowed to work. Not Allowed to be in movies, the other one that Kate. The she was in Batman. She had like she was like great. And then all of a sudden, the replacement so bad. They had to kill her off. Katie Holmes Yeah. You mentioned home. She was just US great. She has shooting otherwise. You bought the take off like a rocket. You Joan all did a fine job as the replacement. She was terrible terrible. Terrible replacement. When she married Tom Cruise that was. Ruined her career, and then rector for the one coming after to the woman who took place. Other you have is a. she's just such a terrible job in badmouthing while she ever got an a role in a different one after that. Scientology. Roger Stone imparted. We're GONNA talk about that a little bit later in the show. That's huge and it has nothing to do a weather. Not Roger Stone is innocent or guilty. I. Think has everything to do with the fact. That president trump is not getting any justice whatsoever. Have you heard anything about James Komi. Have you heard about Peter IB stroking? Have you heard about clapper? All of these people who plotted? To overthrow the trump presidency I, still walking around getting book dill's. Getting a slots on on on cable television. Commentators pond debts. No justice. And this is why I think. President trump yeah. Parted. Clemency. To just stone. Sort of in your face and I don't think he's finished. And, they don't get some justice for General Flynn. Real quick. We're going to see some more that, so we've got president. Trump frustrated that the deep state is basically winning because they're not being held accountable for the treasonous actions that they took. Getting back to Kate Geigo. A she is the focused. Amazing it is amazing getting the power of the media you've got this woman goes on television. Just tells a couple of lies. She's already been caught with their hands in the cookie jar. We talked to a city councilman. Sal Last week. I gotTa tell you coming up at seven, seven, zero, two, seven, zero three. We're going to talk to a Sam Stone. He's the chief of staff for city. Councilman Salad Asensio about the damage. That! The lies are having on the city of Phoenix on the Great State of Arizona. Oh part of Ross Lil little, Ross, a weekend Rapa was also the fact that president trump did wear a mask which just had a whole lot of people absolutely. APOPLECTIC this weekend. Andrea Mitchell I'm on I, WANNA be a month snatched because Andrew Mitchell. She was A. She took a shot at president trump. and. She took a shot at president trump using Dr, vouch. Check this out. Today is challenging his own public health officials that whether schools can safely reopen added a public gatherings as the pandemic, which is crisis levels in key states as evidence of the growing divide, the president openly criticizing Dr Anthony Fauci on Fox last night Dr Grouchy Nice Man but he's made a lot of mistakes. A lot of them said don't wear a mask. Don't wear a mask, and now they're saying we're a mask. So a lot of a lot of mistakes were made of course that is not true, but in fact Dr Fatty has told the Financial Times that he has not personally briefed the president and within five weeks. Of course, that's not true. Here we go again with the media lying. Oh, it is very true, not only. Is it true you had Dr Vouch -I. Come Out and say the reason why he told people not to wear a mask was because. He wanted to make sure that the medical community had enough mass. Now. Star, even a matter of mask. It's a matter of. How can we trust you when you just admitted to lying to us? And something going on I think we are seeing. A reaction! In the country. To all of the lies that were being towed by the by the media. By our political leadership. I also think we're starting to see a reaction in the country to the fact that these people are not held accountable. Got Sam still in the seven three. Mayor Cave. Guy Eagles lies. On the Phoenix. A gentlemen children of all ages. To Serve as circus. T! Had someone not native. The Great State of Arizona I can tell you for years with the perception of this state is. Or these say was. Now that I'm living here. My goodness I absolutely love it, but I can look, and I can see that win. A prominent members of the state prominent citizens say or do controversial things I. know the spin. That's going to be put on this great state. In the center ring of the conservative circuits. We have SAM stone. He is the chief of staff for city councilman, Salvatore CEO and Sam a what's going on with Mayor Gago. Can anyone trust anything? She says anymore. right now or are you kidding me? Heck No! I she keeps saying things that are just absolutely crazy, and she's been saying. Since the start of this pandemic, she started out back in March or early April. Talking about a seven forty seven worth of people in Phoenix dying every day, and she just keeps going further and further down the rabbit, radical. What's the motivation? I mean at some at one point, you would have to think you know. Okay. Know what this is embarrassing and telling all these lies I get caught in these lies, but she continues to lie. Well. James I don I can't speak to her personal motivation I'm there I can only speculate so it'd being one of two things essentially. I i. She's been the biggest alarmist in Phoenix. Arizona since this started, and so to a certain extent, I think her political future is tied to the depths of this virus. If it's not that bad if we come out of this and things are okay, She's made a lot of statements that she's going to have to answer to. On the other side I think she takes that sort of. SOW chief view of I'm GonNa Scare people I'm going to tell them things that maybe aren't necessarily true. I'm going to tell them what I think. They need to hear to get them to do what I think they need to do and to me. That's an incredibly condescending point of view, but it's clearly one that has certain advocates in the medical community and apparently at City Hall. Okay well, the latest lad that she told she went on television. She talked about how we have a hospital here the does not have any more more morgue beds, and so they had to hire a refrigerated truck to come over there, and that certainly is not Schuermann or or or let me ask you Sam Stone. DO WE HAVE BODIES PILING UP IN PHOENIX? No, we don't James, we don't I mean look. You're having fifty some people. Do you know a a high? If you when average at fifty some people a day are dying, and a lot of those people would be dying in this course of time anyway when you're talking about people who are in know long term and long term care facilities that kind of thing, they generally only tend to live a few months, so a lot of those folks would be dying anyway. A hundred and thirty, two hundred and fifty people die in in Arizona every single day. So really you're telling you. This is overwhelming if it's not every single summer every single summer. A handful of our hospitals in our county mortgage have to call out these refrigerator trucks as a backup plan because of all the heat death. Happens every year. In a sense, a ring circus circus. We have the south. We have SAM stone. He is the chief of staff. Recipient. Sal Decio I. Thank you very much for sharing that. because. This is something that's happening. It's a routine and you had the mayor year trying to use it and fear porn to scare people. Do you think it ever occurs to the mayor that these scare tactics of hers might actually be hurting her city. Be Hurting Phoenix. I think when you're the smartest person in the room. You just have to assume that you're correct. Right James. It works better that way. Yeah I mean I think clearly that the you know that's one of the drivers for this. you know look at the end of the day? I think the best thing to do is to give people the real information about what's going on. Let them know what their risks are, and tell them what you know what we recommend. They should do and then leave it up to people to make good decisions for themselves which I believe that people in Arizona are perfectly capable of, but it's clear that we have some politicians here. Including our mayor cluding Harrison Cinema who disagree and think they need to be making the decisions. Sam Stone Away in in and. Again. I I will tell you this I will give you this sandstone. gave me a little bit of perspective here in that. Okay. What the fearmongering! It could be based on the fact that they're actually believing foul thoug- it could be based on the fact that we have so many people here in leadership who are believing the the fake models, the false models. And I guess it really does come down to this. You have people like me who are cynical because the models were fake they've been exposed. We're supposed to be two three million a debt into so far we're not. And I I. Don't believe the doctors who keep reversing themselves, but there are people out there. Who who do there are people out there who are very invested in a what they're being towed by the media. I just happen to not be one of them, because maybe it's because I'm into business. Maybe it's because I heard a lot of doctors who have an alternative alternative view. We've had some of those doctors right here in the center ring of the conservative circus. And so you have this situation that we're in right now. Where most of the news that we're getting is skewed left. And most of the experts that we're hearing from our the government specialists and the controversy. Is that president trump is not even talking to Dr Fao Genie More what does that tell you what people say that president trump is crazy. People will say that he's part of the problem. Actually known. I think the problem here is that we have some government. deep staters. Who set this is going to happen? I'll give Dr Fauci back twenty sixteen us talking about there being a pandemic. That's coming. How did he know Gosh? Cal Stop. But there are people like that out there and I would be lying to you. If I, told you that I trusted them. It would be. A big lie. Where we're going to do is talk about The threat of school remaining closed this this fall. A lot of teachers are now letting it be known. They're not going to go back. A lot of teachers are saying that They're going to hold out for for for the things that they've always wanted once again. They're using the pandemic to advance their narrative that is at seven eighteen. You are listening to conservative circus. I am ringmaster master James Harris just a reminder. Doomed in at eight o'clock for your chance to win one thousand dollars California teachers. Listen to this headline. Tell me if this makes sense to you. In rebuke to trump. Los Angeles teachers. Their Union says campuses should stay closed for the start of the school year. In your face drop! How does that even make sense? Who will show you trump? We're going to shut down the schools in Los Angeles. Trump does not have the power to open up schools in different states. This is A. Federalism! Class Class Better Eliza. If president, trump has the power to open up schools in states. You know that would be problematic. That would make him like a dictator. This is crazy trump derangement syndrome. You know what we're GONNA teach you. We gotta teach you president trump. We're not gonNA open up to schools. We're GonNa, let our family suffer rigging to make our kids stupider because we hate you. California governor. Gavin Newsom, he is insisting that schools a need to make their best effort to open this fall. He is warning the education You know the teachers? That you know what the the impact on the children think about the children's says it's all about the children and what you're doing. is going to have an adverse effect. IMPAT, on the future generation I'm all about the babies man I'm all about hugging and saving babies not only do down spots right? I went out. And personal to education is the key. See that's the. That's the rapper, fatman. Children I. Teach them and. Let them do the. We show them all the beauty they. Santa. Governor. newsome is ordered a mountain of masks and other protective gear for for schools to encourage safety admit a rash of new corona virus outbreaks have forced him to to reinstate the stay at home, mortars and shudder bars or restaurants that had barely reopen. But I. Guess There's a point there. If the bars and the restaurants, and all that can't reopen their. Why would you send your children to school? It's. Trump's fought. You see if trump would have put in a national mask, order or something like that, then we wouldn't have had to spike. And then the children's says we'll be able to go back to school across the board. It's trump's fought of that that California Teachers Association. Is that willing to put their lives in danger. The is insisting on prolonging distance learning. Instead of forcing its army of more than three hundred thousand educators back into school. We hope we don't have to go there, but if it comes to it. We do retain the right to refuse to work under unsafe conditions. The virus is raging and the circumstances that we are thinking well where we might be dealing with September only a few weeks ago, seemed to be changing by the day anti justice looking increasingly unlike. Unlikely that we will be able to teach in person at any level when school I opens. Yeah! well do these do these a teacher's? Union, do they have president trump over a barrel? No, actually they have you over a barrel. Right here in the great state of Arizona, we're getting some. Push back from the from the teachers Saying that they may not, they don't feel safe going back to school. We had Diane Douglas Former public destructor here. In the ring last week. It was a fantastic conversation I would encourage you to download the free iheartradio APP and listen to it if you missed it because she was giving parents options different options, she was encouraging parents to walk away from the government. Run schools. If they're not willing to to to do their job, she said this is the second time in two years. The first time with the whole read for madness. And now we have this. We have teachers who actually plan on getting paid. While they're part of the resistance. It's an odd thing. And then we have a lot of the commentators authored. They're playing it to this like a Chris Wallace. He interviewed the Betsy Devos. And he he's looking at this from a national point of view while if the teachers in California. They're refusing to do your job. Do Their job. Betsy going to cut their funds. Schools must be open and a fall. If not open. Why would the federal government give funding? It won't. Two questions that I need a quick answer. If I can from you, Secretary Devos One. Under what authority are you and the president unilaterally cut off funding the funny. It's been approved for convert from Congress and most of the money goes to disadvantage, students or students with disabilities, and secondly isn't cutting off funding exactly the wrong answer. Don't you want to spend more money to make schools safer whether it's with with plastic shields or Health checks various other systems is doesn't make sense to increase funding for schools that were on the safe rather than cut off funding. Now what a great question by Chris Wallace and I'm just actually. I'm being facetious is not a great question. It was a punk assets little. Each question should've just asked the question about the funding and then come back around depending on our answer. But Betsy Devos did answer the question, but American investment education is a promise to students and their families. If schools aren't going to reopen and not fulfil that promise, they shouldn't get the funds. Then give it to the families to decide to go to a school. That is going to meet that problem. You can't do that type. Of. Support vouchers and that. She was. This is why I want you to to get that free iheartradio APP and listen to Diane Douglas. C. Because because Betsy Devos, she's about to lay down, so would and and. Chris Wallace didn't want to hear it. She was about to make some total sense. And this is what the president is doing. He's not like any other president. See You had Chris Wallace tell of. Why she had to do this and why this money was appropriate, appropriated by Congress and you have to do this and what you should be doing is setting up more programs for kids in need him to putting up plastic shields and all these kind of safety measures. That's how you should be spending the money. Isn't that right? Betsy or no Chris? Well, no, no, no I'm just gotTa jump in here. Interrupt you because I don't like what you're saying. This is weighing. We've got Admiral Brett. I think this is a girl. Admiral Brett girl. He is weighing in on why it is important as vital to get these children's says back in school. I WANNA. Emphasize on the pediatrician. We have to do this safely, but kids not being in school risks, their social and emotional health risk, many people with nutrition the recognition of Child Abuse Child Sexual. Abuse It's really important to get kids physically back. Back in school, but we do have to do that safely and the first thing we need to do is we need to get the virus under control When we get the virus more under control, then we can really think about how he put children back in the classroom on. We know from other countries that are particularly young children do not seem to spread the virus. Get sick, so we're learning a lot from looking at Sweden and Finland and Japan about how to do this safely, so it is. It is a health reason to get them back in school, but it's got to be done carefully. The CDC guidelines are good and the guidelines aren't changing this week. These are more of guidelines that are amenable to school. District's actually implementing. Implementing well, my question is when those other schools that opened up in Europe, A. What were the guidelines? Are they wearing masks? Are they socially distancing notice? How never talked about that? That's because they just went back to school. We're GONNA talk about President Trump and how he is giving no quarter to crazy lefty governors and mayors. That's coming up at seven thirty three. Rush Still Listened today at ten on five fifty KFYI and on FM at ninety, five twenty five hd two. This thing to be conservative circus. I am your ringmaster James Not Harrison. Remember when the When the media made all that noise when because president, trump allegedly said that Haiti and other countries like that. Where like S O. countries? Wise people getting over here from s whole countries and I forgot who the Democrat ran right out of the meeting to the microphones, and said the president trump just said s whole countries. I did a video of that thing. That was the last like big million. got. Who what was so funny, you had people from s O countries, you know cut video talking about yeah I'm from Esau country. And you have to deal with, and they just start listing off the craziness. The poverty. The corruption. You all these Democrats get all over trump. Because he allegedly said so countries I want you to hear. Joe Biden this is a flashback Joe Biden back in the day, if Haiti got to save Haiti, just quietly sunk into the Caribbean or rose up three hundred feet. It wouldn't matter winter. The same as A. Calling Haiti s whole country. These people the people who are trying to punk trump. They just don't understand whether we're talking about a loan politician or whether we're talking about a state, a governor a Mayor Review, Talk. Trump, you're going to get punked. President trump. I can't tell here. No poke. He's No. I bet you it came as a surprise. To Minnesota's far left politician, that president trump ate no punk. What happened? Though the the Minnesota's governor. Tim Walz. He wrote a letter. and He. PLEADED WITH FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency for money to help pay for the damages caused by rioters an arsonist in Minneapolis. Governor Walter Letter. It was disingenuous. It was full of fakery. It it was, it would look at basically, he lied about how the five hundred million dollar destruction K. The resources of local tribal county state governments were already stretched thin due to our ongoing response to the covid nineteen pandemic, however, all levels of government surge available resources for immediate response to preserve life and safety, and to protect property and infrastructure from additional damage. Why not come on dude? You stood by? You stood by. And watched your city, burn. You WanNa talk about dysfunctional governance. That governor and that mayor. Stood by watcher city burn now. They're crying the blue, saying the president trump blubber. You need to buy bail us out. A president trump said I'm now. Now I know punk. You stood by your watcher city burned down deal with it, and they're going to have a hard time dealing with it as more and more businesses fully from that state as they're crazy councils Dow defunding the police. Pretty soon you're GONNA have to start laying off the cops laying off the teachers. And then they're going to have to lay off their diversity experts. And, then they're going. Just be senator. Look alike! Boo, Boo the fool. These clowns in Minneapolis and in other cities that had these asked my policies. were. They stood by. And intentionally let their city burn. Okay! We're GONNA GET TRUMP SORTA like the those union teachers out there in California. WE'RE NOT GONNA go. We're not going back to the schools. Real show you trump. Hurting their own people. They're playing a very cynical game. They thought there were looters and the rioters you know, do their thing. Give them space to express themselves, and then at Penn at all on president trump yeah. And then get your money your to the bail them out and build things back up, so they can do it all over again. But you know what trump ain't no punk. Betsy Devos was also trying to tell you know Chris. Wallace Going back to school. Guess what you're not getting the money. You're not going to continue to bail you out when you're when you're when you what now. Minneapolis a manmade disaster. Was it a natural disaster? What's happening if kids don't go back to school, because the teachers won't go back to teach, that's a manmade disaster. And I'm very very pleased to see the president's actions. I'm very very pleased that he's just not gonNA. He's not play in that game. And this is what the left hasn't learned yet about this president. He just doesn't play those games. But wait and see what happens with what he had to be at these problems are in Minneapolis where Atlanta. See what happens with the lead but I don't think mayor bottoms down. There is going to be foolish enough. To go ask for a bailout when they just stood by and watch, their city burned as well. Very very interesting times we are in. Don Lemon Don Lemon is the dumbest man in television. Steel driving the left nuts. That's why we love. Rush this morning at ten on five fifty KFYI and on FM, and ninety five point five hd two long. You are listening to conservative circus. I am your ringmaster, James t hairs. Is Now just a sport. I'll sit back in. I'll listen to. Don Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo in our little exchange. A because is become such such a running joke. Of course you remember down limited was a guy back out the missing airliner. He was speculating there. Maybe there a black hole. The plane fly. Into a black hole. Serious! Look at just go on and on and on about the stupid stuff that down limited, said on television last week Don Lemon a one. Our service circus clown of the week brought to you by tombstone tactical because of what he said about Jesus, but here's the thing. Jesus Christ if you believe in if you that's what you believe in Jesus Christ. Admittedly was not perfect while he was here on this earth. Let so! Why are we defying the founders of this country? Why are we d? You find the founders of this country when admittedly? Jesus Christ was not perfect if you're a question. Admittedly Jesus Christ was not. was a not not perfect. Straight up last me. Straight. Up Blow Laugh for me. By the dumbest man on television. Don Lemon, don't you? Don't you? Don't do it. Well he's back at it. And this is this is i. think this happened over the weekend or last Friday but I just. The talking about great presidents. There's still fuming over president trump's brilliant speech at Mount Rushmore. And the beams that came out afterwards. They were not happy about that. either. The beams had a fit to trump's face up there on on Mount Rushmore? and. Of course, we've found out so much about the The man who sculpted. Mount Rushmore. Ye was part of the clan of thank or He was A. Sculptor for the clan. I don't know if that's true or not. But that's what people throwing so that's how much they hated the president. Well, then the question was asked whose face what should be the next face. On Mount Rushmore. Puts them one on Mount Rushmore sibling the history of this country, the first black president should be front and center and add to Mount Rushmore. That's first of all. I think it's a more salable idea than the idea of taking away founding fathers. What we do have to do in this country is everybody you're doing it beautifully. Brilliant yourself of course I'm biased and I love you, but you're using your platform. You've made a choice. You may not be winning yourself a lot of fans, but you're going to say what you think is true from your experience hard minted for many years in this business and in this country right? You the say what you believe to be the truth. You speak your truth like admittedly Jesus was not perfect. He's served, but but but. To their point, you know what instead of blowing up Mount Rushmore instead of instead of cancelling Mount Rushmore, we can make it more palatable. By putting. The face of Barack Hussein Obama. If they're gonNA put someone on Mount Rushmore sitting in the history of this country, the first black president should be front and center. Here's my question. If they put his face up there. Will they paint. It black. Liberty Tan. So, you can't have them all all the founding fathers or the next four presidents that erupted right now. There is like marbly white. Use Black Onyx. How how can we black it up a little bit? Give them like a Mocha Tan or something what? I'm playing Don. Lemon they're. Going to put anybody at the put. America's first black president put him up there simply because he was black because. Here's the thing just limit. My mom did navy hold on. My mom didn't amy don cheap. It easy squeezy. It's just down limit. Go on I. Gotcha Man, thank you because I love to go off. Ross I. Really was I was about to go off. Because see I. It's not about the the content of your character anymore. Nobody. Talk about. Jefferson Talk About A. Lincoln, we can talk about Roosevelt talk about their character. It's not about her character is to color. Of their skin? That's what matters here. That's what matters we can't talk about a month. King Genius Character Color Skin. We can't talk about generals. Character is the color. Of the skin now that is. With the left completely cares about. You've got. You've got some segregation training going on. In Seattle backs. This up is absolutely Seattle's holding segregated training sessions. For. White people. White people. have to come to grips. With their whiteness, yeah, I heard word that last month. The city of Seattle had sent out an email asking. It's white employees only to attend a seminar on interrupting internalized racial superiority and Whiteness. So I was curious what this means. What was happening so I filed a freedom of information request and I got a trove of documents outline outlining something that I found a deeply disturbing. They had essentially said. We're hint. Segregated training sessions for white employees with the goal of convincing them that they are all upholding system of white supremacy, and they have to wipe away all the values such as individualism, objectivity, comfort and give up their physical safety in order to combat racism. Amazing things that make us as Americans great. The fact that we are individuals. the fact that we are a motivated. We have to give that up if you're a white American, you have to go through through a diversity training in. You have to be willing. To give all that up for. Others for the other people of Color, because see what you have is. Called Privilege. Wow. We have more companies in this state that are beginning to push back on Lord Ducey's closers call closing I should say especially folks who are out of the in the movie theater business. The gems are still pushing back. We're going to talk to a man who has who was helping them. May. Have found a way a loophole. Shall we say a through some of these decrees? And we'RE GONNA. have him for you. at eighty three. Baht owners in Arizona are, striking back. Ladies and gentlemen children of all ages. Two. Circus St Address owners from across the state of Arizona have filed a lawsuit that claims that executive order issued by Governor Doug Ducey. The keep them closes both unfair and unconstitutional. The twenty six owners are taking the governor to court over a mandate that will keep them close through the end of July in an effort to stop the spread of the dreaded covert nineteen. Professor Ilan wonder. He is a Asu professor, and he is a an Arizona businessman, and he is filed a special action. He is in the center ring of the conservative circles and professor. We have heard that your lawsuit has promised has promised that you might finally discovered the secret weapon against our governor. Can you tell us about it? Sure, first of all, thank you so much for having me I. Guess the secret weapon will is. We're not doing like other lawsuits right? A lot of others like. And other organizations that have filed suit filed in federal court under federal. Constitutional Law claims under the fourteenth amendment. Are Claims are different? Arkley think are moratorium. We're filing in State Court not just in any state court directly in the state. Supreme Court threw vehicle called Special Action on State Constitutional Law Queens. There's this old saying. Don't make every dispute into a federal lawsuit and that's applicable here. This is a state law suit based on state constitutional law grounds, primarily the non delegation doctrine, and what's called the State's privileges or immunities clause. So that's what's different about our lawsuit. You argue that the kind of policies outlined in the governor's. Orders are really the kind of policies that the legislature would or should be making. Hey, have you heard from any other legislators who are who are supportive of this lawsuit? Yes, we've heard some social media. I know the majority leader of the House. is pre supported, also because we're challenging the constitutionality of state statute in our action, we have to notify the speaker of the House and the President of the Senate and I've seen a bit of media coverage about the the legislature, wanting to get involved and narrow the governor's authority, a bit, and perhaps six constitutional a problem to tobacco back up. If you will, the constitutional problem here is what's called the non delegation doctrine right? This is sort of civics. Civics one on one. We have a system of separated powers right. The legislature makes law executive, or the governor executes. The law and judges are supposed to adjudicate cases. What this means a corollary of this is that the legislature can't give away its legislative power. It can't delegate legislative power to the governor. This is called the non delegation doctrine well. We argue that that's what the legislature has done here. The statute pursuant to which the governor has reported to promulgate these executive orders is a statute that set in the event of an emergency. Emergency, the entire police power of the state, she'll be vested in the governor, the entire police part of the state. That's the legislative power of the state with so there's basically no guidance can. The governor closed down? Schools I guess if he wants to. Can he close down gym's bars or bars, but not Jim Jim's been bars. Can you tell everyone to stay home? Right I guess he can do basically anything that he wants. If the entire police power of the state is given to him, so we argued this is a violation of non. Non Delegation Doctrine. The governor is effectively making law, and that's what's unconstitutional, so we think the legislature we would be happy. We'd be thrilled if the legislature went back and try to narrow the governor's authority, but we also argue by the way that the governor's the story is in fact narrower than he believes because there's a whole part of the statutes, there's title thirty six, which specifically deals with contagious diseases, and that gives specific authorities over isolation, quarantining surveillance sanitary measures things like that, but it doesn't give plenary legislative authority to the governor's. To Ring of conservative circus. We have professor Ilan Worm. Either Asu law school. Representing the Arizona business owners who are pushing back against the governor I gotta ask You what I agree with everything. You just said you're to new here. Have you ever faced the wrath of our governor Lord Ducie? Oh. I never faced the wrath of governor, ducey and I I don't expect to face. Look this is this is. Look I. Don't mean to to do this in any way I sort of personal against Governor Ducey or anyway, this is this is totally professional. He is in a tough spot. He's in a tough spot on the one hand. People who think he's doing too much on the other hand. There are people who think he's doing too little and he's trying to thread the needle he's. He's in a really tough spot, and and and I get this. All we're trying to convey. All are trying to convey okay. No one's denying the coronavirus is out. Out there. No one's denying that it's a threat. It could be very deadly threat. Okay, all we're saying is these measures to prevent the coronavirus which we should pursue pursue many of them. They're not cost-free. Okay? People think it's if these things are cost either not cost free, okay when you closed down the entire Connie, their other cost associated with that that you have to take into account and not just economic cost although there, there's a really really tough as well as well as the economic hardship, but there are things like increased suicides depression. Dose. Right a heart conditions because people don't. You know aren't going I don't know about the point is these aren't cost-free in these bar owners? This is their livelihood. They have to make a living right. This is really really hurting. That's how I got involved in this case literally last weekend I was just up in Prescott Fourth of July friend who lives. There was taking us around. Across the Pike County courthouse on the famous whiskey row and you know they, she had a bunch of bar. Owners were friends, and they said look. Everyone was willing to play ball the first time, but the second order was a real gut. Punch, we we're. We're struggling here. We invested a ton to make the same sanitary measures that restaurants and everyone else has to has to meet right whether it's plexiglass. Social distancing temperature checks hygiene stations social distancing masks, things like that all of a sudden he singles a shout and close down right. These things aren't cost free and and I hope the governor sees sees where we're coming from. It's nothing personal. He's in a tough spot and I actually kind of. I said that he's in a really really tough spot, and there's no obviously right political answer here. There's no obviously right policy answer here so we're just focusing on the constitutional issues and leaving it at that. Professor Ilan Wermer. I got to tell you this. I I liked this lawsuit. Because it's it, it comes right out of our Constitution. It makes the arguments. We've been talking about here. When you look at the way our status setup. We've got an executive branch. We've got the legislature. We've got the courts. We talked to representative Kelly Townsend last week. She's the one that. quoted. I think the Cap Times where the the governor said well I. Don't want to get back this power. You can come back in session if you want to. I'm not getting up this power wilder professor. You're saying you know what that's not choice. You really don't can't make that call. Because of how are system of government is set up and. The legislature cannot see as power and authority to the governor. Interesting? Break going to tractive baby and see how how it plays out. it is it is yeah? No I think they have a child. I think they have a real shot. I! Read about this over the week I have posted. A The story is posted. If you want to get more into it, but I have to say that this is the best shot. And the good professor is right. You know what you can't call strikes businesses where people have their livelihood invested in this. We'll talk more on this at eight eighteen. All subjects and the Kingdom of Arizona onto he needs these worlds who fall from his Royal Highness. Dizzy. Shelters, one takeaway. From today's press conference and the message that I wanNA share today. It's that you are safer at home. All arizonans are safer at home. And you can stay healthy at home. Royal. From Generous, You listening to conservative circus, I, ask your room. Air. The past. Nasty overarching themes safer at home, so we're going to close these businesses. We're going to close down the The water parks were going to close down bars. Because the limited space in restaurants. We're not doing anything at the hot spot to state. Not doing anything about was going on in the border towns. About our neighbors from the south, coming over here, bringing the covert. Mexico right now. Northern Mexico is a hot spot. and. That's probably why we're seeing the number spike in Texas Arizona and in California. We never we never discussion revolving around bad no. We're not talking about shutting down a border because of the covet but. That's a hot spot. But we're doing is talking about Shutting Down Fund the shutting down of life. These bar. Owners are about to lose their shirts about to lose their businesses. And I like this professor I. Think I kind of rattled them though. They're kind of rattled them. When I asked him about Professor Wermer. WERMAN ABOUT A. Being afraid to upsetting our, Lord. There's not personal this is. Doesn't matter. The governor will make it personal. This is what I would hear it. Oh, you can talk to some folks. Use The Servant Administration. You'll make he'll make it personal. At one point I was asking some some of the. Our elected officials y. what are you afraid of man? You don't know what? Don't know what. All I know is. If discontinues. We are going to see more and more collapse. We're going to see more businesses collapse. and. I Have Matt respect for some of these so-called non essential businesses that never shut down in the first place. Refuse to because they realize that they are essential and are not going to let somebody define the not going to let somebody. Tell them. They cannot pursue. So we're going to keep an eye on this, but the bar owners from across this state. They have filed a lawsuit. And are claiming that governor Ducey. In order to keep them closed is both unfair and unconstitutional. There are twenty six bar owners that are that are signed on to this. And professor Ilan Werman. He is He's admitting you know what we're going. We went hyper constitutional in this. And we're saying that the the legislature cannot see authority over to the governor. And basically they ceded their authority back in two thousand, two out of the response to nine eleven. If we didn't win this thing I. Want want us to be a test case. You take out to Washington. DC because that's exactly what Congress has done. Congress's seated over a lot of their authority to the president to the executive branch and. Some of their authority to the courts. Obamacare. which was unconstitutional, because the government cannot force you to buy a product? Or Service! You to Achieve Justice Roberts. WHO changed the language? Calling it a tax. You said this could work if it's a tax. Therefore I'm going to say it's a tax that's called legislating from the bench. It blows my mind that Obamacare went ahead and move forward. Okay, okay, we're GONNA. Take that from judge. We're GONNA. Move it forward. No, no, no congress. Should it be like a minute? We didn't pass a tax and it wasn't signed by the. President. So, what are you doing, judge? In the same thing is happening right here in the state. Folks are saying that these are all co equal branch of the government. No, they are not. The legislature was designed to be more powerful than the governor. And in some states were things are set up right. The governor has emergency powers, but the only last about thirty days did a legislature comes back in and reveals it. Edited the governor tries to shut things down again or whatever the legislature stepping and say no or okay, yes. Things are upside down here. We have now the governor's office way to par for the he knows it and his response is. I'm a given up this power. According to the Cap Times. I'm not giving up this power. Contrast that with President trump where the left was trying to get him to take dictatorial powers, but he would not do it. Because he believed in federalism, so we've got we've got president trump. Who was reviled by never-trumpers? President trump will, his behavior demeans the office. Meanwhile, he's respecting the office as designed. And then you can try you consider Dulcie. Taking this power and I'm running with it and I'm making arbitrary decisions that are having a just an impact on people's lives. We sit around waiting for the next press conference to see what's going to get shut down, and then you got half the people were what the governor to shut everything down because they're afraid of the covid for various reasons, and then you have people who are not. Running the state should be a shared responsibility. The model has been set and it's worked for for for years. And now we get a little virus that comes along, and all of a sudden everybody is losing their freaking minds and grabbing power. This needs to be checked so we'RE GONNA watch this lawsuit and you know what we're going to get back in touch with Kelly towels and find out how that effort is to get the legislators back office. It's just amazing. But we are watching here. National Politics GotTa Talk About Biting Them Pelosi at eight thirty three. Rush that's the only introduction he needs later today between ten and one on five fifty KFYI and on FM at ninety five point five hd two. You are listening to the conservative circus. Your Rape Baxter James Heiress. Got Joe Biden if we got Nancy, Pelosi those kind of incredible to me. is they're still trying to? Hi. Joe Biden out a little bit here. They'll bring them out of the out of his basement. Every once in a while you'll speak to a gathering. Of of twelve people socially distance. And we're supposed to believe that somehow this guy is beating president trump in the polls because president trump is mishandling the cova crisis whatever that means whatever that is. I think the very fact though that we have Nancy Pelosi. We have AOL see a Bernie Sanders. They're all out stumping. For Joe Biden. Because he can't stomach for himself. And what's interesting to me also is the people should be out stopping for president. Trump are not here. We go again. The never trumpers are stacking up. and. They're speaking out. And they're completely out of the closet. As Liberal Democrats drag. Never trumpers are like nats in the summer annoying but largely. Irrelevant. As they don't really staying, they don't really bite. They're just annoying. Getting your ears with that high pitsea sound, you'd be wiping submarine. The, never trump movement hatched when donald trump was running for president, and they became the resistance against the the unfit candidate who dared to run for president without paying his dues as a senator or Governor I. Yeah! President trump is shattered that whole mode. President trump was an outsider and he's still is. Not Part of the cool kid a club. Within the beltway. He's he's. He's not the. He's not down with Mitt. Romney who marches would be L. M.. Never trumpers are well known former conservatives. At least before you know coming liberals. We've, gotTA. WHO's a bill? O. His name, just his name just slipped my mind. Bill Bill Bell Christo. Pawn himself as a conservative. He's one of the most prominent never-trumpers now you know in the media. And everything they touch. Just. Kinda shrivels up like their magazines. How could former serve? How could these former conservative not support president trump? The man is at two hundred conservative judicial appointments. He's road back business crushing regulations. He's restored America's military morale. He stands solidly for Life at is one of the few Republicans mounting a vigorous defense against the cancel culture. which by the way is trying to rewrite our? Our in our founding. President trump has walked the conservative walk better than any elected. Republican Senate Tomato Reagan. And he's walking that walk better than the currently elected Republicans as well yet. Never trumpers appalls him in favor of a Democrat party further left at anytime and its history. What are we watching? In, front ahead of this election coming up here November. never-trumpers have morphed into a new organization with with surprising name the Lincoln Project. I. Have you heard about this? The Lincoln Project Holding accountable those who would violate their oath to the constitution and would put others before Americans. The lake and project. I wonder if that includes. Scott the spy gate guys. With a include a clapper and James Call me knows cats. The Lincoln Project. Let me see on a here's what's interesting. The Lincoln project founders include trump haters, a Mr Kellyanne Conway, all her husband really. the WHO's at George. I think George George Conway Rick Wilson's in Ness camp here. We've got A in there. Of course, supporting Joe Biden's run. Can you imagine John McCain Senator? John McCain if he was still alive, do you? You'd be in the Lincoln Project Aw Heck Yeah. Absolutely. Meanwhile. We have. Nancy Pelosi whereas where do we have Nancy Pelosi She is She's not about governing at all now. It's all about resistance now. It's all about punking a president trump. On sale glad that he obeyed the rules of the of the. Walter Reed, you can't go see our veterans. Who are there without wearing a mask now? He's crossed a bridge. That's an admission that if you're going to see our soldiers, you have to wear masks. You're going to be with their children. You have to wear a mask. If, we want to stop the spread of the virus we have to. You have to wear masks so hopefully. By his example, he will change his attitude, which will be helpful in stopping the spread of the virus? You give them an inch. They'll take a mile. President trump has been criticized for for not wearing a mask. So what happens he goes to the hospital wears a mask and all of a sudden. They're going to use that I'm glad he's obeying the law. I'm glad he's finally setting the right example. Maybe you will continue to wear masks. People like this at around our children the only way we're going to be able to deal with the garage. Nancy. Pelosi. It's staggering corruption, but I think it's important for people also to know that it's a threat to our national security. The whole impeachment process was about our national security a why we are at the Supreme Court on these World Supreme Court on these cases was to find out about the Russian connects a Russian dimension you to pursue that this case out the. Who the Russia connection and we're going to. Continue to pursue even though it has been debunked. Even though when we talk about the collusion and we talked about Mueller talk about the impeachment, they were wrong wrong and it fell apart. But yet they're not gonNA. Let go of it because this is all they have. She's talking about the pardoning of Roger Stone. She's saying that that is what is corrupt. This case was about the Russian connection, so what the president that we will have legislation that says a president cannot commute or pardon, offer clemency to anybody who commits a crime is convicted of a crime, or that affects the president's behavior and his culpability, but the again people should know. This isn't just about lying to Congress that means lying to the American people. It witness tampering and the rest, and it's about our national security everything. She just accused us of exactly what the Democrats have been doing. None of these Democrats are being held to account. What impact is that having on our culture? What impact is that having on our society? We'll talk about that at eight forty eight. Sean Hannity works every day to make America great again. Listen at one on five fifty KFYI and on FM at 95.5 hd two. You are listening to the. Conservative circus, I am the ringmaster. Jacobs here. We're talking about watching all of this lawlessness. We're watching We watched a coup attempt. We watched. A D A previous administration the Obama Administration try to sabotage the trump administration. We have been watching for the last three and a half years. And now we're. We're at the edge. We've been waiting for the HORWITZ report and all this kind of stuff, and now we're getting all you know what Horwitz may not come up with this until after the election. Doesn't want to interfere with the. That is made a lot of people and our camp angry in this made the president of the United States. Angry and I do believe that is why he pardoned Roger Stone. Just SORTA punk. The deep state back. Let them go are apoplectic over over the loss. Over them. Yeah, having something just snatched out of their out of their jobs. I imagine. General Flynn is going to have a day as well. But this is amazing. Walking around talking about there's no to tear justice. Nobody's above the law. It's like Sorta of like spiting you. Because you know that people are above the law. You've got the the arrest of Weser Face Maxwell. She was the Madam. For for the of the WHO's. Who killed himself in jail. Epstein! The Metaphor Epstein. And she's got secret to tell. Last time we had Epstein. He was at back to the corner he. Wound up dead. If this woman talks going to be a lot of very embarrassed individuals, and there's going to be some folks who are going to be arrested because. We're talking about sex trafficking underage girls. And one person who has seen some videotapes. Talking and he wants to come forward and he wants to testify. At this thing goes to trial. Prince Andrew's walking around. He has not been arrested yet. He's still out to see. People are not people are not having to pay the price. Oh, see, they're embarrassed and ashamed, and they can never now what we're talking about. If that were you and me, we'd be going to jail. I think part of the reason why we're seeing such an explosive. Explosive amount of guns of being a soldier being bought. Is because people are looking around them and they're seeing that nobody is holding anyone accountable. And when the people. Who are supposed to hold you accountable? The side that they're not going to hold you accountable. You gotta ask why and while you're asking, why do you have to? You have to make means to protect yourself, and that's why in the month of May over eight. Million guns were sold. In a continuing to be sold and not slowing down, why because people do not trust? Our current crop of politicians they're not. They don't trust. Law Enforcement. To do the right to actually they may trust law enforcement, but they don't trust you know The the politicals. And the people who are directing. The police. It's. Alarming. It's frightening. It's how republic's fall. It's not anything from the outside. It's what's happening on the inside of the country. Be leading a bunch of Marxists have their way, and for some reason, our elected leadership is deciding not to do. The right thing is deciding not to protect we the people, and so we're going to have to do it ourselves a going to see more crazy violence last Friday, I had a discussion with you. What would you do if you're caught in the car and you? You just turn the corner office setting. You're part of a mob. Around you. Well individual was caught in that situation. And they ran to Ritz car. They tried to rip literally. Rip Him out of the car. It didn't go well. For the protester for the agitator because the man drive, the car happened to have a gun and he used it. We have that posted. What's really frightening is the injustice. We see with President trump with the people who we used to trust crossing over to attack him and being so deranged in their actions. They're actually say they're gonNA. Vote for Joe Biden. This is how this is. How president trump has been able to turn things upside down in the last three years. We are now starting to see what people really think. What they really believe is starting to show up. Got Less than four months before the election. And we see a constant media carpet bombing of of lies. Defamatory lies about President about President trump. And they're doing it on behalf of a candidate who's almost comatose. We've got unfounded hysteria. Over a fading pandemic. We've got self-induced economic depression. We got open borders. The things that were just ignored. For so long back. And the only person out there who is steadily that we could see battling against it. Is the president well, you know. The one thing we can do is to reelect him, but when we do boy Katie bar the door and Juno it right. Katie bar the door. Because this left, they're never going to. You think they're upset now. You think there. People are rioting in the streets now. But the reelection of president trump. We're going to get that times ten. So the best thing you can do is continue to pray for this president. Pray for this country vote. And protect yourself. Because trump derangement syndrome is real, and you can look around and see people who you thought. You once knew doing stuff. That's just just well downright despicable. Like Mayor Kate. We'll talk about her at nine zero three. Can't go is the mayor of Phoenix? She's also. As a gentlemen, children of all ages. To. Serve A. The winter nationals, you spend a lot of time on television. RUNNING DOWN This states. Efforts in battling the. Virus! She is of course a democrat. And the America you know we were the hot spot last week. But of the hottest spots in the world. This pandemic. Is Spreading, but so is the misinformation. And this weekend you had a kid guy ago. Go on and make just a an incredible claim. Irresponsible and dangerous claim. And these lies, and this misinformation is is dangerous because it's putting people in fear. What did she say? She went on MS NBC's she was talking to Chuck Todd. And this is what she said. It has been such a tough situation out here I. Have Constituents who waited. Eight hours thirteen hours to get a test and you know many people. Won't wait that long unless they desperately need one, it is quite hot. We are predicting temperatures that could hit a hundred and seventeen degrees this weekend MARICOPA. County, which is our county, public health agency just announced that. They are going to be getting refrigerated trucks. Because the ABRAZOS healthcare system has run out of more beds. He's very scary out here I wish we had given mayors the authority to act earlier. You're out of more space to the ABRAZOS. Healthcare system has run out of beds, and the county is getting refrigerated trucks. It's not throughout the county, but it one very important his system. it turns out that that Mayor Kate Queen Kate was lying. Lying. The health facility actually did bring in refrigerated trucks, but they brought him in as backup. We are not running out of mortgage beds. We had Osama stone who is the chief of staff for city? Councilman Sal Desisto on the show earlier and he said you know. This is routine. This is what hospitals do every year. They bring in refrigerated truck. Because for backup because you have people who are dying, people will die what he related deaths. This year mayor K. Google turned it into a pandemic. A pandemic of lies. Last week we city councilman Saudis you in the. Central Reagan he was telling us how the money that the feds have sent down here for testing has been mismanaged by mayor key Geigo. Makita SPEC because I. Want I. Want you to listen to this again? She's complaining about testing. She's already been given money for that. She either is incompetent and doesn't know how to set it up or she's corrupt. Both. But here is the mayor of Phoenix. Television stoking the fear with lies, it has been such a tough situation out here. I have constituents who waited. Eight hours thirteen hours to get stopped tape I. don't even understand why somebody would do that. What is your mindset where you are going to wait in your car to drive up to take test? You'RE GONNA. Wait eight hours. I don't for the life of me get that. And that to me speaks to fear as well. You must be very very afraid if you're going to do something like that. Imagine a virus so deadly. You need to be tested to find out you have it. That's why I can't go along with this, but anyway mayor Que Geigo and you know many people. Won't wait that long unless they desperately need one. It is quite hot. We are predicting temperatures hot. Why would you desperately need a test? You someone explained to me. What is the? How could you be? The I gotTa have this test. I have to have this test. Stoking fear one hundred and seventeen degrees this weekend, Maricopa County, which is our county public health agency just announced that. They are going to be getting refrigerated trucks because the ABRAZOS system has run out of more beds is very scary out here. I wish we had given mayors the authority to act earlier. You're out of more space, so the ABRAZOS healthcare system has run out of more beds, and the county is getting refrigerated trucks. It's not throughout the county, but but it one very important his system so why it's so long by. Governor's office put out information. chastising or setting the record straight a chastising the the mayor. Why is she doing this? Does she really believe that this is what is going on? Is She really that deceived? When we talk about this issue. I we're. We're split and we're split primarily because of the media. Cova cases are going down. We are not in the pandemic anymore. Death, the most important number that everybody should be looking at as how many people are dying because of covert. Not that many. Not that, that's not happening. They are, but not that many. Plus what's not being talked about is that we've found an effective treatment. Multiple Treatments. And they're not talking about just hydrochloric when there's a lot of stuff on the market if you get this. Guy That ninety nine percent chance of recovering from it. But, that's not what the cake goggles of the world are talking about. It's really scary out here. It's really scary. We add the break in refrigerated trucks, because we don't have any more more bets and the governor should have given us. The opportunity should have given it to the mayor the power. No, because if everybody would wear masks. We wouldn't be scary situation. Is Absurd. And it doesn't make a difference if she gets called out by it for it. She's going to continue to do this because it's profitable for her. and. She doesn't care about the fact that she's trashing the city and she's trashing the state with these wild accusations. This is an elected official. Going on television, lying about people dying, stay from a from a pandemic from sorry a virus, it is no longer a pandemic. And the latest fear tactic here's. We can't send the kids back to school. Where he you? One of the teacher unions is doing out in California. Have that for you at nine eighteen? Listening to the conservative circus. Ringmaster James T Harris. You would think that they just wouldn't surprise me more. We've seen these actions. We've seen a right here in our own state. How the how the education community out of the Teachers Schools? We, watched teachers walkout on the students and walk out on. The kids read for Ed. Big Old Socialist Grab. Even though at the time. Governor Ducey was giving them what they wanted. What was that all in all the hundred twenty percent raise stretch out over a couple of years. They had no reason to walk out. Proved by the fact that whenever start making rumbles about it again, the teachers go that direction because they tr- trolley. Roiled. Parents. Here we go again. People are trying to get back to normal, but this is an election season. At once the the president made a colossal mistake of shutting down and courage in the shutdown and a guy disabled to mistake. He knows a mistake that's down hanging out with Dr, file. Anymore He knows he got player he had to kind of got cornered in there had to. But he's not doing anymore. And, he's saying the kids have to go back to school. But now you've got the teachers unions involved. They're not going to. Not going to do it. They're trying to rebuild trump. And you'll never guess. What they're doing. Check this headline out. La Teacher's Union holds all whole school openings hostage. To its call for states to end charter schools. We are not gonNA. Let these kids come back in the classroom until the state gets a charter schools. We don't want competition. Kids must come to the government run schools. No Charter schools know homeschooling. Those are your teachers California. Trying to rebuked president trump. WE'RE GONNA keep campuses clothes that don't show you. That will teach Ya. This is so stupid. President trump does not have the power to open up schools in California, president trump does not have the power to open schools in Idaho. That's a state issue. So when you had the petulant little teachers. Well, we'll show you will show you. We're GONNA denied these kids were going to deny their opportunity and our future that teach you a lesson trop. It sick. California teachers fight back against pressure to reopen the schools. We want really WANNA risk, not safe. Okay, okay, you're safe. Okay, We're not coming back unless you get rid of charter schools. Chris Wallace had a betsy devos on. This was amazing. Chris Wallace started asking her a series of questions, but then instead of letting her answering them, he answered for her kind of change the the the the the nature of the question before he got to the end of it. American investment in education is a promise to students and their families. If schools aren't going to reopen and not fell fill that promise, they shouldn't get the funds. Then give it to the families to decide to go to a school. That is going to meet that promise well, you can't do that. No you. Ryan I want to go to the Chris Wallace. I asked Betsy Devos about. About cutting off funds, schools must be open in the fall if not open. Why would the federal government give funding it? Won't I two quick questions that I need a quick answer if I can from you as Secretary Devos Komo one. Under what authority are you and the president to unilaterally cut off funding the funding that's been approved to for Congress from Congress and most of the money goes to disadvantage, students or students with disabilities, and secondly isn't cutting off funding exactly the wrong answer. Don't you WANNA spend more money to make school safer whether it's with with plastic shields or Health checks various other systems, if it doesn't make more sense to increase funding for schools that were on the safe rather than cut off fun. Okay, you want her to answer the question real quickly why you're all here rambling at the mouth answering the question for her. Basically you know one of the things I like about a Betsy Devos, is she? She Ain't no punk. I've just like president trump. You can't punk him. He got Chris trying to punch somebody. Betsy, the US look. Look American investment in education is a promise to students and their families. If schools aren't going to reopen and not fell fill that promise, they shouldn't get the funds. Then give it to the families to decide to go to a school with that is going to meet that promise you do that. No you. This. Talking over interrupting Gert Talking about what she can do. Yes, you can. Always you. She just told you what they could do. Take that money. Give it to the charter school. Take that money. Give the parents directly for them. Instead of a set of thirteen thousand dollars per pupil, going right down to the Canadian, give it to the parents. Take money. Educate your child. It's amazing and you've got. Chris Wallace trying to talk all over cut her off. Why because her idea will resonate with the American people? People want their kids. It it is the job. Of Our schools to do that? They haven't been doing it for years. Actually they've been a actually indoctrinating kids. There are other ways to go about it. Make sure you download the free iheartradio APP because we have a. we had a competition. Diane Douglas Me Public Instruction had a great conversation with their and you have options. We're going to talk about the latest controversy. Here the latest push to get people to comply. We'll do that at nine thirty one. Davila Riley update this morning at nine fifty now on five fifty K. of why I on FM Ninety five point five hd two. To. Conservative circus. I. Am your Master James T Harris? I don't a hammer on this anymore. You know people have to make their own decisions. That's where I am, but I just laugh I sit back and laugh at the left, and they tried to make our decisions for us as they tried to guilt him. Bully us into into doing what they think is right. If you want to, you can do your own research and you'll. There's some good information out there. But the left. They're not interested in substance as a as a A. He's an anti science. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the science. That supports social distancing. Show it go back. You can't. But that doesn't stop. People like Ana Navarro from CNN. Not only telling you what you have to do, but just going on in his sane rant Aboud mask, and then going off on trump supporters, donald trump is coming to Miami today. This is a great time. This is a great opportunity for him to be precedential for once and talk about social distancing and talk about wearing masks, because make no mistake. It has his supporters who are out there refusing to wear math because they think it makes them look weak because it's government overreach because it's communism because it's big brother telling you what to do because it's so hard to wear a mask I'll tell you what. Oh No, no big brother. Communism because makes me look weak. You forgot to say that it could be unhealthy. And Navarro. Unhealthy. I'll tell you what's hot. Wearing a nurse's uniform and emergency room than filled with their patients. That's hard wearing a fireman's uniform into a fire that. Wearing the nation's uniform, which president trump we is to do, and with a draft dodger like Tammy, Duckworth it. That is hard. Wearing a mask is not. Where do you think for the way masks as not hard? Wearing spanks is harder than wearing a damn mass, so everybody should just wear their damn mass because people are dying, people are getting sick as not just people. It's not just Liberal, Republicans? Its Democrats Black White Latino. It's rich. It's poor. Covert does not discriminate, and we are at a at an emergency here in Florida. People got a knock off the politics and just face the science and effects where to de mask. Is. Easier than we're in spanks. Ross have you ever? Have you ever worn spanks? I have not. Nor do I plan on it now. I have not worn spanks. I imagine would be. Very slimming. But I already have a body like a Greek Donna's. Just where the damn here the problem, it's not about was easier and the Varroa. Wear Masks No. Don't believe anything I. Don't believe that, but it doesn't. Matter doesn't matter. Because this. Is that thing that good to try to hammer it on? Just hammered into your head. Here is. Governor Jarrett Policy. He is a Democrat and he is the governor of Colorado. You're somehow waiting to wear a mask till the governor tells you too I. Hope you've heard that I'm telling you and if I haven't been clear I'm telling you to wear a mask. Boo, where a damn mass governor said, the State doesn't have the capability to enforce such a law. However, he said many. Many counties had already passed local laws requiring people to wear them. He encouraged officers to issue mines. He encourages office. The dish you find is even though he doesn't have the power to enforce it, and then he starts out by saying. You know what if you're waiting for me to tell you to do this then? I'm telling you to do with where the damn mask Know. What you gotta do. No Yeah well until the police to. The right in order. To find you okay. You do what you gotTa do, but see to me. It's not about health anymore is it is about you telling me what to do? And I had a very serious conversation with someone just recently, actually I was sent I think this is going around the Internet as inch thing. They want you to wear a mask is a it's just a masks just six fetus just two weeks. Just, non essential businesses is just ninety central workers is just a bar is just a restaurant is just to keep from overwhelming. The House piddled is just until the case. Go Down is just to flatten the curve. Is just a few inmates is just to keep others from being scared is just for a week or more is just a judge. You can still pray pray at home. Is just until we get a vaccine, it's just a bracelet is just an APP is just tracing. Is just to let people know you're safe to be around is just to let others know you've been in contact with who you've been contact with. It's just a few more months. It's just a few more inmates is just a video. Is just the pulse. It's just an email account. It's just a blood test. Starts Out, is just it's just. I'M GONNA make a real easy for myself. Make it very easy for me. Start by saying. No. Beto O'Rourke is back in the news. Bet Toe the Irish Spanish kit remember. He was one of the first ones the drop out of the race. I think it was second or third. Well he's back gone down for a wash. The maha-rushie Rush limbaugh today at ten on five fifty KFI and on FM, at ninety five point five hd two. Circus I am near Ringmaster, James T, Harris Beto Award. This was the media's first big shot trying to manufacture a candidate. They gave Beto O'Rourke The star treatment. They treated him like JFK. This was most awkward looking awkward talking. This was the answer to president trump. And he? He was kind of limping along. Actually. He had a stronger senate run when he was heading for the president. He's just started saying things that are absolutely nonsensical, actually funny now when you compare pair to what's what's been going on in this country for the last few months, these are weapons of war, and they're used as instruments of terror in our country and so I, think in addition those steps that just described. It is really important that we buy back. Those weapons of war that are out on our streets right now. Millions of them and And also ensure that there is a national licensing and gun registry program we have in this country more than three hundred and ninety million guns in a nation of three hundred twenty nine million people, that is a big part of the reason that we lose forty thousand of our fellow Americans every year. Yeah, you know in the last month low in the month of March over eight million firearms when he during the elections us like Hail Take Your Hell Yeah I'll take your fifty. That was it for him. That was it. He's back on the scene. No. Not really big time, but enough to wear. He and others are now all on board trying to push a Joe Biden. Keep him propped up and move him across the finish line, and in order to do that. He realizes in order for it to be legitimate. They have to take. Taxes. I don't think there's anything more important mini-state more important right now than Texas because and the vice president has referenced this should the outcome of the presidential presidential election be close? Though Joe Biden will have lawfully one donald trump who has shown no regard for rule of law constitution who will do anything to hold onto or increase? His purchase on power will exploit the proximity of the finish. To create chaos and confusion and seek to invalidate the results. What's the answer to that Texas? If we win Texas, it will be seismic in its impact. There will be no question about the result. We can turn the page beginning new chapter. Build back better for America wealthy. Everything that bed accused us of doing. He's predicting what we will do if if he if Biden doesn't win. Texas is contested race. Here is exactly what Hillary Clinton did. It's exactly, but the left did. It's amazing. And the way they continuing to lie one of the things on today's show, they just love. The very accused trump of doing or predicting that he will, he doesn't respect. The constitution is exactly how they behaved over the last three and a half years. It is amazing, they they actually. There's no talk whatsoever about the fact that the Obama administration tried to topple the trump administration. This is this is why we have so many. Americans that are now taking you know their law into their own hands, because the left has completely come apart. Daniel Snyder. He promised us. He would never change the name of the Washington redskins. In L.! Be on the warpath anymore. Because Daniela because he lied. It is official the name. Of The Washington Redskins is now. is now been canceled. The logo has been canceled. And there's a new controversy. There's a new controversy because they're having up in your usually when you cancel out in aim to give the name but they have not done that yet. there's a guy in Virginia. That actually has the trademarking whatever you WANNA. Say to it for a lot of the names that they were considering using. Were they stupid enough to talk about these names in public before they had them secured. yes. So. Wait a minute. Whatever to the red tells us. The rent is one of those names. The The Washington retails. I. Know That Red Wolves is in there. I believe red tails. There's There's lots of names that they cannot use without buying the trademark. You can't. You really can't call them. The red tells off of the to ski airman. You can't do that. That was isn't that so making the you know the black pilot mascot, the never problem with that. Go against the fighting Irish. Get rid of the with that little leprechaun looking do. IT IS A. Very slippery. especially the reason why they were calling him, the fighting Irish I learned from Lou Holtz is because of that came from the period of time when the Irish were taken on the clan. The fighting Irish beaten up Klansman. Oh, we have such a rich history. Such a rich shared history of that is being canceled out by the Left. We can't let them do this, but it's already. Being cancelled all around us. I tell you what we're gonNA. Keep our eyes out here. Bucatini the shouted out to you WANNA.

Masks: What You Need To Know. And Remembering John Prine

"Hi I'm Jen. White and this is reset the Centers for Disease Control and prevention is recommending. That all Americans wear face masks in public starting Friday everyone in La. We'll be required to put on a mask before they go into a grocery store or other essential business but these moves mark a shift for months public health officials said facemask do little to protect healthy people from covert nineteen and that the masks should be saved for sick people in healthcare workers. Here to answer questions about masks from us and from you is Dr Rahul Carre. He's founder and CEO of Innovative Express. Care that's an urgent care facility on the North Side Dockery. Welcome to reset. Thank you for having me. So how do you face masks protect people from Kobe? One thousand nine. Let's just start with the basics as we have learned five days before we start having symptoms of covert nineteen. We're eighth and thematic but we are spreading the virus so the facemask is really intended to make sure we don't know we have. The virus is to make sure we decrease the amount of load that there spewing out when they go out into public so a face mask will protect it gets done by everyone will protect other people And that's the importance of the face life well as we mentioned earlier the CDC now recommends that everyone used cloth face coverings in public. What kind of mask should we be wearing? Honestly it just anything cloth. That's over the nose and the mouth will decrease the spread of particles from your mouth. So I if it could be an old t-shirt it can be a Bandanna handkerchief like whatever you can do to put over your nose and your mouth Will Work and is there if you have materials at home we know. A lot of people are making homemade masks. Are there any additional things you can add to a homemade mass that might make it a little more effective because the whole idea is I would never tell my healthcare workers in the emergency department to to use these things this is for people for that are going outside when they need to? Only when they're going to buy groceries or or things that are targeted or costco buy those are the people this is for so really key doing a couple layers of fabric. Cotton is fine Or or quilting fabric T shirt fabric would work putting a couple of those and putting it over the nose and mouth. That's really all you need to decrease the spread when you're out doing essential things. We've been getting a lot of questions from listeners about masks. And this is a voicemail question from Mary Beth and Kane Ville. Let's listen. Many of my friends are making masks and sewing them at home. Are those actually useful to medical providers or could they be used by retail people in Grocery stores. Your thoughts doctor. I think these are great for people who are in the essential workforce so construction workers. Grocery store workers post office workers. I mean these are wonderful and they will. They will help in the hospital We would like especially emergency physicians anesthesiologists and knows even people that are registered registering patients. Those We should have level one or level three surgical masks which are at a high level of decreasing particles. These are not an ninety five mass. Those are to be used on patient with physicians who are taking care of patients with suspected or already known covert nineteen viruses so the three levels of mass are and ninety five for those taking care of the patients with Kobe. The surgical masses for us working in the hospital of a higher risk of of encountering people cove it and then just cloth masks for those who are out and about who are just doing their general essential things that they do to live so those are what I would say that Three types of mass being used. I WANNA play voicemail from Christine and Oak Park. She volunteers with a group called Chicago mask makers and they've donated more than two thousand masks for healthcare workers Caring directly for Colbert nineteen patients. Let's listen. We are sowing masks right now to supply nurses doctors and respiratory therapists who are treating. Kovac nineteen patients in our area. Hospitals and healthcare centres are fabric. Masks are not a replacement for the end ninety five and surgical masks but intended to be worn over. The hospital issued masks to extend the life of those masks while awaiting shipments of PPE's so who is selling who is sourcing them Curios that we construct the masks from we are volunteers and neighbors from all over the Chicago Metro Metro area. We would love for you to join us our website. Chicago MASK MAKERS DOT ORG has information on how to get involved are tutorials. Materialists and tips are available for free for everyone to date. We have donated over two thousand fabric masks and have request for many thousands more that was Christine in Oak Park with the group Chicago mask makers pedigree. She talked about extending the life of of the of the masks. Medical professionals are wearing by creating this extra level of protection I suppose. Can you make some comment on that? Yes that's the other way to use these These cloth masses is to place them over ninety five or over surgical masks. So that You can reuse these. Unfortunately in the hospitals and even clinics we are having to reuse ninety. Five maths We hold them for a week. We put them in paper bags Believe it or not with our names on it and we use it for a week. put the date on it and we throwing away after weeks but we have to conserve these because we don't have enough so To do so we need to put a mask over her actually over the ninety five mass To protect them from getting soiled. So these cloth masks are perfect ways of doing this and very much helping us and I know in my hospital as well as other. I see people with these cloth mass putting over the ninety five and over surgical after extend their use which is really great to see if you're interested in getting involved with Chicago mask makers we will tweet out that contact information at wbz reset. I want to go to another call. We got from Joe in Orland Park. Let's hear him. I'm a single man and I'm totally blind and I can't sell. Can I use a ski mask that I use during the winter to keep my face from being frostbitten? Thank you Dr Carre your thoughts. Yeah as long as that. Ski Mask is of cloth and has Definitely doesn't have little holes in it that you can get through what we're wanting is something that fully covers the the mouth in the nose Without any open holes particles can get in so With looking at it it's tough by a BANDANNA Usually Ski Masks. But they can't have openings in them. That could work Depending on what type it is and how it if they have wholesome. Let's go to win more listener question from Kelley and Willowbrook and and she's asking about best practices for cleaning masks. Let's listen I have a question about cloth facemasks. I'm making some from a pattern that I got from a local hospital and was wondering the best way to wash them Besides hot water and tumble dry hot. Can they be sprayed with Lysol? In between waring's would that also disinfect? Them what's the best recommendation on that? The Doctor Korea have heard everything from putting your mask in direct sunlight for a while. Too you know washing them or spring them down. What's what's best practice here right. I Wanna I think Lysol is a no lifestyle has a lot of other harsh chemicals and and We're seeing a lot of healthcare worker Kind of cops and and and other irritants. Lysol thank goodness for Lysol. It cleans everything we want to be very careful but putting that near our nose and mouth but I think she alluded to this hot water with soap is the best tumble giant. Hot that if we can put it in the washing machine and dryer that would be great but if not hot water scrubbing With soap Will work as well. That's the most important thing and I would I would wash them daily Just as things get soiled things get dirty It's important to keep things clean especially something. That's so close to your mouth and your nose. We know we are all limiting our time out of doors. But you know as I'M OUT WITH OUR DOGS. I see a lot of people walking or running without a mask. What is your recommendation? If you're if you're out side is a mask necessary. No I mean. I'm a big advocate of mass. For All this something a platform. I've been talking about for the last couple of weeks. However if you're taking a run if you're going out with your dog. I think it's nice to have one in your pocket because if you ever have to go inside or go in a place where you're less than six feet away from someone for for more than five ten seconds. I think it's important to for us all to be masks. But when you're taking around walking your dog out and you're not in the general public not close to people then. I think you're not wearing a mask but anytime that you're actually talking to people or next to them within five feet and when you're there for more than five seconds not when you're running. I think it's important to have a mask on Both people to have masks on. So that's really important. Dr Curry you previously worked in the ER at northwestern Memorial Hospital. But you also have a background and uppity Miala G. and disaster relief. How did that prepare you to deal with this crisis? Well when I started seeing what was going on in China than Iran and then Italy it became clear to me especially when I saw Italy which is an advanced healthcare system When I saw that I knew it was coming United States and we were going to be in trouble so I started preparing buying p. p. e. getting the tests and getting ready for it I think before a lot of people saw it coming therefore we were able to test in our community. Now your facility. Innovative Express Care is tested more than a thousand patients for Kobe. Nineteen to date at a time when tests are hard to come by. How were you able to provide that service? I have relationships with labs and their two labs in In the community quest and Labcorp and just having relationships with them prior to cove in nineteen I reached out to them saying. Are you guys prepared to to do a large amount of tests that we give them to you we also have our through the CDC in Illinois Department of Public Health in Chicago Public Health Department? We have the ability to send off tests through them and I've been very working with them closely to fend off the patients as well so just having my relationship is really helps but not only that is having the P P e because even if you had the test if you don't have the personal protective equipment which includes goggles face masks gallons that are disposable. You cannot do the so you need a lot of things to even do a single task And then we just ordered those some through Amazon's on through our distributors but we did this A month ago so there wasn't any rush. There wasn't any limitations on them and We got a good amount of it and we're able to test our community which is nice. Well you've personally administered hundreds of the tasks and I think a lot of people wonder what that process is like. Can you describe it for us? Yeah it's fairly simple Test if you've ever gotten a flu swamp it's the same one so you just take a swab with some bristles on it so it's a little uncomfortable and we push it through your nose along on Way. Believe it or not A good five to six inches till we hit hit it and we just move it a little bit to get some of that mucus membranes from the back of your Nasal ferrings and then we saw we mix it into some viral transport media in a test tube and where we cut off the bristles so we keep it in there and then we send that to our private lab quest or labcorp Which are private labs and they get the test results in three to five days so it's a pretty easy process. It's not painful a little bit uncomfortable but nothing even like a shot or anything like that. Who's that was ripple for testing at your facility? We have opened it up to anyone with symptoms and he cough cold anyone with fevers and anyone. Who's a first responder or healthcare worker? Who are interacting with people at high risk. We help them as well. So we have a very open testing policy and how many of your patients are testing positive at this point to this date. We've had one hundred seventy five seven nineteen positive on patients so We have fifteen to twenty percent positive rate based on our numbers. Those definitely gone up in the last few days. We'll just as we wrap up here because I think it bears repeating last advice for people about ways to stay safe during this crisis right and I know you've heard it all from our our mayor to our governor. It really is to stay sheltered. And that's really the most important thing it means. Not Having your friends over not having people over it really is to isolate yourself And it also means that when you do go out in public to wear a face mask. Like a cloth. Mask is is great and that's Not only protecting you a little bit more importantly protecting everyone else and if everyone does that obviously there's a lot of positives to that that's about it washing your hands once an hour when you're out and about Or using Hand sanitizer. But that's all we can do for the next two to four weeks. That's Doctor Raul Carre. Ceo OF INNOVATIVE EXPRESS. Care to urgent care facility on the north side. Dr Carre thanks for speaking with us. Thanks for having me the plaza from Montgomery mainly Rodeo. Just give me one back and hold on to believe and this is just the hard wave singer and songwriter. John Klein used his years growing up in working class. Maywood to we've stories that would break your heart or make you laugh out loud. Sometimes both would happen in the same song was loved by fans and revered by fellow musicians. John Prime passed away yesterday due to complications from Kobe. Nineteen seventy-three music critic author and Co host of WBZ's sound opinions. Grech hot joins us now to talk about the life and work of John Prime Gregg? Welcome back to reset. Thank you jen. So a couple of months ago we were sitting together talking about your retirement from the Tribune after thirty two. Pay Per lot has happened since then. I if you were working there today. What would the first few lines of your remembrance about John Bryan say He was one of us. I think that prying you know was both a serious singer songwriter. One of the geniuses of the last half century but at the same time. He never acted like one. You know I would compare them to somebody like Dylan Bob Dylan the level of craft and genius. That he brought to his writing but Dylan was sort of unapproachable. He's he's almost unknowable. Inscrutable figure prion. You could always imagine yourself having a drink with him at the bar. In fact I I had a drink with John. Pry Bar once and he was always it was always like talking to an old friend so there was a a humanity there an empathy that always projected itself not only in the person but in the songs and to me the line between John Song and who he was like in real life was was very thin indeed in fact. I think they melded together more often than not. So there's the lyrics and then there's the music talk about his approach to to the music. His music was pretty simple. You know it was a folk based country based you know. His family was from the south and moved to Chicago for for jobs. So he grew up as a mailman and You know he was in the service the military services well so he's a blue collar guy and a lot of ways And grew up around blue collar. People you know salt of the Earth type people you know no. Bs type of people Chicago people so his songwriting was informed by that. Don't make too too complex. Don't make it higher than you think your audience is. It's it's almost like I want to relate to these people In the way that I want to be related to and so his craft was deceptively simple but at the same time as gift for melody and also for wordplay. Where were you know on unparalleled? I think he was one of the the genius at putting words together in a way that was extraordinary You know there was both the mundane details of everyday life that filtered their way into the songs and then at the same time like you said I liked living deep down inside my head and there was this element of surrealism in their his gift. His ability to hold comedy and Pathos together at the same time in the same song sometimes within the space of a couple of lines. And giving you this complete human experience in the span of three or four verses. What was the live performance with him like he essentially did the show that he did in the folk clubs of Chicago in Nineteen Sixty nine? Nine hundred seventy seventy one when he was first starting out He did that. Show is entire life. He never thought there was any need to gussied up or change it. I mean he added musicians over the years. He played with some great musicians Had A had a great touring band But it was still a pretty stripped down affair and it was basically John doing a set like he would have done at a at the old town school folk music or Old Town you know. He was just himself up there on stage singing his songs and he could hold an audience wrapped for two and a half three hours. Doing forty forty five songs ranging from obscurities to classics like Sam Stone. Hello in there and I probably attended a dozen fifteen of his shows and everyone was different. The banter between songs was different. You know the stories he would tell to sort of set up. The songs were were different but at the same time There was a feeling of like you're GonNa get a great show because the guy never found it was always in the moment and his audience was in the moment with them and it sounds like there was a certain intimacy there during his absences. Absolutely I mean he used to play in rooms I mean he told me his first audience was about twelve people. You know fifty cents He got fifty cents for every head they brought into the tour you know. I got twelve people to show up you as his career spiraled upward over the years slowly but surely cult following turns into you know major you know major mid Tier Act. He was never a superstar but at the same time he was able to sell out places like the Chicago Theater. Which is like you know. Three thousand plus people. So that's a hell of a way to you. Know to make a living in a big audience. And at the same time he made it seem like he was singing to a few friends in his living room. So Again that intimacy that sense that we were in it together You know people throwing around a lot in this Cove Ed pandemic. You know. We're we're we're in this together. John always felt like his shows were about. We're in this together. It's about this community here sharing this music. When you think about somebody for springsteen he'll take the quote unquote regular guy and tournament to this sort of heroic mythic character in his songs but price characters were were quieter. They were simpler but they were still so memorable. Talk about that element of his writing. Well I think the key was again as you said You know the characters were were down to earth and and They were relatable. They were people like him He was writing about what he knew what he knew. Was you know working class was You know salt of the Earth people you know the farmers from the South the factory workers in Chicago the Mailman in Chicago. The you know the guys who were not superstars They went to see superstars perform but they weren't superstars themselves. I think John Always cared himself. Like a member of his audience springsteen to was able to relate to his audience but his gift was in creating these big choruses these big refrains these big big songs and by the time born in the USA. The songs are blown so out of proportion that people didn't even understand what they were about you know born in the USA was consistently misinterpreted as this. You Know Grand Patriotic Song. When it was in many ways exactly the opposite prime songs had a lot of layers to them But I don't think there was any doubt about who we was singing to or who you singing about. I mean to me. It was startling for him like an angel from Gourmet to adopt a woman's voice. You know one of his earliest songs early Seventies. It wasn't a common common thing to do that. And I don't know if it's a common thing to even do that now. But I mean it was one of those things where he could relate to people like himself male or female. It was You know that sense of empathy that came across in all his songs and by extension that empathy created a sense of intimacy and made the songs intimate so he wasn't about creating these big sing along refrains alone. You know Song Lake. Marie certainly had it sing along aspects to it but at the same time there was a sense of he was writing about everyday people in the vernacular of everyday people. You spoke to him a couple of years ago for sound opinions. What was the most memorable part of that conversation for you? I probably interviewed prying a dozen times over over thirty years and You know the the sound opinions interview. I I felt like I'd heard every story and you know. Of course he you know he was never as I said on stage he. He wasn't one of those guys who just kind of had a stick. You know it was always kind of in the moment. So whatever sort of popped into his head he'd talk about and you know he told his story and I'd actually heard him tell before about meeting. Phil Spector but it was just surreal. You know story you know He. He brought some details that I hadn't heard before meeting the surreal character in this serial setting like the just the oddity of John Prime Meeting this. You know sort of a gigantic music figure who was sort of on the down slope of his career at that sort of very vulnerable moment in the to live sort of intersecting for one night and creating this memorable series of events and and prime was just great at telling those kind of stories that you could just imagine yourself sitting there you know over a few beers hearing these stories over and over again all you WanNa do is hear him. Talk and tell these stories because he was so entertaining. I mean the guy could have been like I don't know a camp counselor or something or preacher. He was just so mesmerizing. You didn't even need music and then you go well. The wonder this guy's such a great songwriter. Because he's so great at not only coming up with stories but the the vivid details that he was able to include in those stories a really made them just. Pop made them live in your head for for decades. Well we're going to go out on a song you chose. It's one of John primes earliest songs. Sam Stone really quickly by the song. Well you know. There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes you know. Jesus died for nothing. I suppose know I mean in those two lines just crush me. Every time you know he He talked about a guy returning from Vietnam. Got Hooked on heroin. New People like that that just you know Lives were destroyed by Vietnam. They may have come back in one piece but they were really never the same and this guy Became a heroin addict and Egypt's talked about this sense of hopelessness and this guy's life and again that sense of empathy you know. Forgotten figure. He talked a lot about outsiders. People who are overlooked people that society in care about in his songs. And that's onto me is where where it all starts.

What's lo fi indie rock guy. Do and make an nashville record. A country influenced Record can you take me a little bit back about where your fascination with country music started. Well it would spend in my blood through my dad. This whole time. I mean he played the basic country. greats you know like hank williams johnny cash etcetera. But he'd played more so bluegrass music like flat and scruggs and bill monroe and old time. Music collect doc watson in. I don't know you know over the past few years. I just got deeper into country through. George jones's autobiography. I lived to tell it all and all kinds of other front once you start. I've always red rock bios music vials so many people out of their minds. It's entertaining and they're so talented. But then once. I started reading about the country guys. It's almost like the rock and rollers. Seem like you know posers because they could play or sing circles around you and there were twenty times crazier often in. I don't know the longer version is just being able to pass through nashville and connect with people like john prying you know. I got into john prime in my early twenties and it has music. Hit me hard teeters. He's got he's obviously he's got his. He had one foot in country or more. But it's just a great songwriter. And okay that. That's also why the country in general it's just about the song they served the song the other short answer of widespread nashville ep. Because it was recorded in nashville. With one guy dave ferguson. Who used to work for jack. Lemmon who you just heard He's friends with john prime so they'll just me tapping into that world in organic way. You know couple. Trips to nashville. You know there And we're going to get into going down to nashville and and work in with dave ferguson. The other thing that i was curious about was that your first instrument and i think this is obviously speaks to the influence that your dad had was a banjo. yes while. I have a cousin who lived up the street from me. He was my first drummer and things. My cousin dan he plays in a band called fraud. Holler actually now who you might have played the I know they've they've played on your station but anyways when we were kids you know i would want to be in a band with him because he was in band and my dad. They said they're going to get. I wanted to guitar basically but than what one year they like said to me leno yet. We were going to give you a guitar this year. But you'll be really bad so you're not getting anything anyway. The next year. I got a banjo instead. Somehow i agreed to it through my cousin. Actually he said it'd be cool if i got one. I wasn't sure. But i. I played it like bitar more or less and now played like a banjo. I guess you could. Do you still have it. I still haven't i have a few more Banjo has made my records in the last couple of records. There's a song on believe him. Going down called outlaw. I'm an outlaw. Mets got banjo on the previous fooling bottle. It in has a song called. Come again and that's a banjo. Jam elect to break out the banjo. I don't do it all the time. But when i do get lost in it pretty much right away. So people were listening. They're breadcrumbs yet. That this might have that. This might have been coming. Yeah we're on the world cafe talking to kurt. Vile you mentioned. dave ferguson. who engineering. I mean i. I don't know if it's fair to say legend but he's incredibly well thought of and well considered nashville Tell us a little bit about Historian what interested you and working with him. Well honestly matt sweeney. Who's from the band shy of as but he plays with all kinds of people buying principally in different people. My label of matador. He's a friend of mine and i. I think i saw. That matt was playing with john at one point on instagram. Something and i was like what because he plays all kinds of people. It's not like. I was surprised but still is and i asked him. He's a the is spurred. So i talked to on the phone and i set out when a cover. The song spin the sound of loneliness by john brown. You know it and he's like alw- inside and out you know a good friend of mine. We're gonna have a good time kurt. There are a lot of great. John prime socks. There are a lot of phenomenal songs. Why do you love this song in particular. Why did you want to cover it. I wanted to cover it because it just spoke to me and You know it's a beautiful song. I love how he says he come- let you come early. Come big when you feel on small you come home straight and you come home curly. Who says that. He thinks that it's time for john prime in with such beautiful sort of melody but still rawal and human as possible in his voice also just Who else would think of that core. The you've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness that's just an example of one of nine songs. It's me and so many people on. That's why i wanted to do it. it is kurt. Vile speed of the sound of loneliness here on world cafe. You come come home early. Come on feel small straight and you come home. He did. Don't come home and nor heaven's name down broken the speed of sound long. You're out there on that speed of the sound of loneliness. It's kurt vile covering john prime. It's on his new record. Speed sound lonely. Cave e. e. p. You're listening to the world cafe. Kurt is our guest so the song was recorded four years ago or almost five years ago and if i read correctly there was an ulterior motive. Other than just covering the song because you enjoyed it. Is that correct. Well yeah my by that kind of made things a little dramatic. Oh okay but it's also true but you know it's like anybody cover. I hope you'll hear it. You know so. I think that sort of sums up the ep. Basically what i said was speed. The sound of loneliness recorded to get john's attention than you know whereas how lucky was recorded to get him in the studio which was four years later and the last song to report record for the ep. Speed of the sound of loneliness was the first song to be recorded for the epa. But that was me you know. I'm friends with them. Eileen tilson who works for john's label and she'd be talking for me and same with fergus. The one who showed him the song heard you know the next one. I finally met a music for play the song and i do like it and you know it was years before it came out with john john new had heard it sometime and he would sometimes have to be reminded. I'm like you know the next time. occurred i remember. I'm buddies with record your son. He's like oh. Yeah you know in the next thing you know. He's dedicating it to me on stage in newark or something. Wow what a trip. Yeah thing i'd Beautiful things like that Yes and we to jump forward. You know how lucky we do. Add on the prime song so lucky. I got to spend as much time with john. I didn't you know he. Finally you always sorta knew who it was but by the end there'd be no mistake in that it's me you know i. He showed off the studio and he was like a. You know. I love the sing with you. Kurt as if it happened all the time which is partly being a country gentleman partly like him at least definitely no known. It's me when i when he sees me totally. You make that leap from someone saying nice to see you wondering today. Even remember if they've met me before too nice to see you. Oh god you. Actually you know who i am and i wanna talk a little bit about the stuff in just a moment but first i were talking about john ryan and i. It's fair to say you know you're a big fan. You said you know you grew up in a kind of country loving slash bluegrass sort of household made. You gravitate to prime in particular will prime in particular hit me in my early twenties. Some i i had been writing finger picking songs i remember a move back to philadelphia was spent two years in boston. Basically where my wife was going to grad school. I was just driving forklift. Not i bought like gear. You know was able to afford deer in alone lot. So i learned finger picking and was writing finger picking songs. When i came back and moved back to philly again. i was. I played a show. I remember actually with that band frog. Holler who my cousin played in a time and and somebody there said i remind him of prime. Which probably just you know. I was finger picking and seeing. But either way i didn't know who was in fact adam as the war on drugs adam he who told me he's always said you sound like john brian. I didn't know who he was. But anyway i got some used. Brayton's hit some songs. Like sam stone in a hello in their heartbreakers. Masterpieces hit me right away. A member Pretty psychedelic summer in philly circa two thousand and three or four. I can't remember anymore. I was listening to it a lot beyond the park and come home in that kind of sneak back home and keep listening to those two songs over and over again even there's a a bio. I read after john passed. I happen to have this unauthorized biography. Which once i realize it was unauthorized. I put it down but then he passed away so it was comforting. And i read it. He would even say the same thing about sam stone early on. He said he'd play it at open mic and the first chorus. There's a hole in daddy's on where the money goes people would people would. I like lasts like you know. That's crazy by the second chorus. People are stirring or whatever they're paying attention by the third verse slash chorus. You could hear. Pin dropped the nets as basically just the way his songs are. You know they're so he such a soon serious guy And he's got great sense of humor to but at the same time you can say there's no bs about him. He's one of those guys. It's it's almost impossible to explain how he is so good at what he does And from the word economy to the humor to just being able to do cutting like like cutting lyrics that really really hit you. You know you brought up sandstone. Let's give our audience a little bit of a taste of it. So they can hear some of some of the brilliance of john. Prime samson here on the world cafe samsung came home to his wife and family surname conflict overseas the tan. They served shattered. Oh it's nerves. Little shrimp is name. The morphine ease. The pain in the grass grew around brain. Gave them all the car for the land where the purple heart and a monkey bank ruland. Daddy's on rawal money goes a little bit of sandstone. That is from john prime. We're talking to kurt. Vile here on the world cafe The new ep is called speed. Sound lonely k v ep. So you have this desire to play with him. In johnson's song you've played onstage with him a few times When did you actually get like the the hint from furger from whoever that he was going to join you for. How lucky. oh well. That was partly i mean. I knew i could get to ask for his virgin. Just give them a call. He's giving him a call Heat with say other. Like i tried to get on to come down. He doesn't want to witness session or something. But basically i went to nashville to finish up ep. We had four songs at the time. I thought maybe we just mixed four songs but in the back of my head i knew the would have more weight if we could do one. More song have trying on it. In the other main reason. I was going to see john at the grand ole opry for new year's eve and basically along the way i got invited to sit in on stage with a pit. How lucky again. I asked my friend. I lean how lucky she relayed the message. He said yeah. And then the first day of mixing verbs like would you wanna do. You wanna just makes me song. You wanna do another song. And i said to him Well i think he would have a whole lot more weight if we could get john over here to teach me how lucky and we could recorded as a duet you know like re person sorta new record it for called not literally said what do you do what he said. I'm watching the game. What what he said were wednesday game over it got seventies you. Come down here record.

The singer songwriter admired by Bob Dylan Kris Kristofferson and Bonnie Raitt prime died Tuesday at the age of seventy three from complications of the corona virus. He never had a hit record but was known for his evocative songs often recorded by others including hello in there an angel from Montgomery and he was known for his raspy singing voice. We'll listen back tears interview with him from twenty eighteen when he released his album. The trio forgiveness is first album of new songs in thirteen years recorded after his voice had been changed by cancer also. Ken Tucker will have an appreciation of John Prime today. We remember songwriter singer and Guitarist John Prime who died Tuesday from complications of the corona virus. He was seventy three. Prior to best known songs include Angel From Montgomery Paradise Sam Stone and hello in there among the many people who recorded his songs are Johnny Cash Bonnie Raitt and Bette Midler in two thousand sixteen. He was honored by the Writers Organization Pen for lyrics of literary excellence last year. He was inducted into the songwriting. Hall of fame. Terry spoke to him in two thousand eighteen after the release of his album. The tree of forgiveness his first album of new songs and thirteen years.

Naby bottle emmy man with his solemn Croak of a voice and his carefully cultivated habit of dropping the Geez at the ends of his words John Prime always came across as very cagey. Good old boy singing plan songs that he wanted you to think he'd tossed off the night before with a good buzz on and before the hangover took hold in fact of course. Prime was a meticulous craftsman with a gift for novelist detail. Well it got last. That is free. Name Sky off to allow Mar- shoes and the lack of hear Dr Way last cigarette fo me style.

He was immediately saddled with the blessing. That was also a curse. Praise for being the new Bob Dylan back then. Anyone who strummed at guitar puffed on a harmonica and wrote his own songs had to endure comparisons to dylan but a year later bette midler recorded a hit version of hello in their primes.

Grandma's on the front alums there nattering wondering if his Berridge was a terrible mistake. I'm sitting on the front steps drink an orange crush wondering if it's possible for. Mehta's new John Prions lyrics hold up to close scrutiny of his technical prowess he took a journeyman pride in unifying metaphor and metrical precision even as he also indulged in intentionally scrambled syntax looping non sequiturs and crammed syllables in short lines but prime was no show off. He also new to rein in his verbal skills to speak with the kind of stark simplicity. That makes if you don't want my love one of the most moving songs I know Want Ano- if you don't while Milo if you don't while while Imo he liked Honky tonk country music rhythm and Blues and the funkier side of folk music a mixture that rendered his own compositions unclassifiable. Catchy as hell and not especially commercial he won two grammys in the folk category and pioneered the Independent Label Movement in Nashville with the nineteen eighty-one formation of his own label. Oh boy records for a guy who came across as guys guy. It's significant that. Women connected strongly to his melodies and lyrics as can be heard in the way. Bonnie Raitt sings angel. Montgomery and Iris dement sings her duet with prime in spite of ourselves in two thousand eighteen. He closed out his album. The tree of forgiveness with a song called when I get to heaven. It's typically cheerful puckish description of what John Prime liberated from Earth would do as soon as he dies. I hope that's the good time he's having now. We get to heaven. Shake God's hand. Thank promote blessings. One man can stand them or getting guitar. Rock and roll band check and do swell hotel anything afterlife grand and then get back. Yeah I'm going to smoke a cigarette.

That's John Prion from his new album. The trio forgiveness John Prien. Welcome to fresh air. It is a pleasure to have you here. Is there a story behind that song? Well The big story behind that particular sound. Sam Resent first of all. It's my favorite track from from the tree or forgiveness. He just came out so pretty A Good Buddy of Mine Pat McLaughlin and I wrote that song and we've been writing together leaving friends longer than this. But we've been together since my missing years record in ninety one and we're just uncanny the way we work together. I mean we can finish each other's sentences you know I've just thrown image at him and he comes back with one and we don't really decide what the subject is that we're writing about. We just kind of go with wherever sounds good and feels good to both of us and the fact that that sound like that's how we approached it and it ended up as pretty as it did in his lonesome and many other things was a surprise to make because we were literally going like Ping Pong. We're going back and forth with each line in the saw. What about the melody? The melody was just another simple outright patented melody. I mean I'm trying to do is play freight train. I think I just pick up the. Yeah that's how I learned to think pick was learned anything playing China fake like Elizabeth Gotten and Mississippi. John Hurt so much so that I used to put my much fourteen years old. I'd sit in the closet and the dark in case I ever went blind to see it play. Wow that's pretty strange. So you're telling me so. Can you do it made you ever have to look down at your fingers? You're lying I can't my belly Kc Weird thing. I've practiced in the dark. We eat you've been through a lot in the past few years you've had neck. Cancer and lung cancer. Can we talk about how you were able to get back into shape to be able to perform and tour? I mean the next surgery severed nerves in your tongue. It damaged salivary glands. Did you have to learn to sing or speak again? I had to do some The they gave me a speech therapist. That was part of the therapy when I was just getting over the the initial surgery. The neck surgery. That was pretty as a pretty big surgery is Matt. I really big surgery and it was a big one and I didn't realize I had anything. Any slurring my speech whatsoever but it killed some of the nerves in your town and kind of made you have I guess they would call like Lazy. You Know Your Tongue. We just go to one side and naturally and you'd slurry some. Your words said some speech therapy but I tell them. When I was going in for that surgery I had talked to the surgeon and the radiologist and they had to do as I ever. Radiation on my throat Right across my vocal cords and the radiologist was explained to me. He was gonNA make a shield. My Bunko cords and I said have you ever heard me say as if you leave me something Vega Meggett noise as it come up with a voice on the event and The the surgeon Tomi. My Golf swing will improve after surgery. I said I goff and so at least they loving with a voice to sing. I think improve my boys of anything. I always a hard time listening to my saying before my surgery. See that a new voice any fill different about it. Yeah dropdown lowering. Feels friendlier to me. So I can actually sit in the studio and listen my sing and played bag before I run the other way so when you returned from being in the military in serving in West Germany you moved to Chicago. You move from a suburb outside of Chicago to Chicago. And you became a male men there so Was being a mailman. A good job for somebody who was writing songs in their spare time. It was great because there's really not much to do in your mail. Man I mean maybe some male men make it into an actual job once you add. They're on the same streets every day.

The tree of forgiveness and all the songs on this her co written this one was co written with Phil Spector. You started the song with him in. Nineteen seventy eight. I think you've finished it for the new album. So how did you and Phil Spector? Meet UP I mean. My initial reaction was wow doesn't seem to that. Seems like a really unusual musical fit. Because you know my first though. Like Phil Spector a girl. Groups are nets darling love but then I was thinking well Phil Spector did produce music by John Lennon later on and he produced a Leonard Cohen Album. So what brought you together with him and help him was the premier music critic for the La Times for about thirty five years and he was an early champion. My stuff so anyway. He's the guy that Introduced me to Phil Spector. I ran into an late seventies out in Hollywood ran into Hilburn that is and I asked him what he was up to you and he said he was working on. A book on Phil Spector News. Up at his house every night interviewing him and he said you might come up with me and I said well Phil Spector would know me from Adam and he said well he was quoting your song down the other night and that's really and I said well come up there. Say Hello so I went up there and it turns. It was just around the time that he produced the learner combing record. And it wasn't out yet so the first thing Phil Spector did was take me into a snooker room with these big speakers and the crank dipped eleven and played. Leonard calling on the TAB by him. The snuggle bows were vibrating around the table. Like like one of those electric football games and I I get done listening to record. I couldn't hear a thing to learn calling say they cause music or so that and The whole evening Kinda went like that was a big circus service. Show you know Phil had a couple of bodyguards with him all the time. Your drink never got past lower than half full and these guys win like Suardi so you're skinny guy and the other guy look like you back and they were with him everywhere and Phil Head of three P. Pseudo with a shoulder holster. All of them were carrying Pesto. See and It was pretty crazy evening and I got up to leave. Caused a taxi about one thirty in the morning and fills welcome to the door and we pass bad pianist and he sits down at the piano and Hansman Unplugged Electric Guitar. And we were sound going if you don't want my about ninety with thirty minutes. And when he was doing that he was totally normal guy. Just straight ahead songwriter. Doing his craft. There was nothing who is no big circus about it. Raining and I left after that and I came back about six months later to play at recording the song. If you don't want my love for my bridge doing drag and learn him to hear it. I played it for him at his house. And that night On the way out we we did the same thing stop. The Piano guys only knows at least half of it and I kept meeting to finish it over the years. It'd be the first song when I think about finishing an unfinished song guy. Only knows is the first one I go to over the years and I just couldn't finish it. You know. It was very simple basic. I think that's why has it to our ten finishing it. So part of the lyric of God only knows is God only knows the price you pay for the ones you betray along the way You didn't know exit. If as your vitriol myself today the guy he knows the price you pay. Yeah thank you So thanks for the correction so when you were writing this. I don't know if that line was written when you were working with Spector but you have. No one's going wins. I wrote just the week before studio. Yeah because you could not have known. He was going to commit murder and be in prison by the time you completed the song. No that's not where my town's future do. What was your reaction having written a song and a half with him. What was your reaction when you found out about the murder? Well I mean I was shocked but not shocked because I don't I mean I can't comment on whether I thought it was A. I thought it was supposed to be murder. You know but I do know he was always he always had guns around and he's always waiting room around you know and I'm not sure exactly how the whole thing happened. But that was the part I was not shocked about. When you guys all those guns sitting around you know something's bound to go off sooner or later and I didn't know I didn't know fell well enough to know is true personality was. I'm not here to people close to him knew that well. Let's hear God only knows and we'll also hear on this track. Jason Bell and Amanda Shires on background vocals and Isabelle's on slide guitar.

Let's get back to Terry's two thousand eighteen interview with him. So let's talk about your background. You grew up in Maywood Illinois. Was that like a small town outside of Chicago. Yeah it's an old suburb. Almost old is the city itself It was right next to the suburb Oak Park. Were hitting ways Trent. And there's a stark difference between maybe no May was Like full of Minorities you know. My mother and father came up from Kentucky and settled in Mainly because he was ahead. American can company there. Madonna got a job there in the thirties and helped organize the steel workers. Union and Maywood was really different than the other. Suburbs amounted one. Suburb would be all Italian. Your Americans in next one Polish Americans. Another suburb those kind of clusters of ethnic Neighborhoods and may we had We're about fifty percent African American Hispanics and people from the south. They moved there for factory. Work and Well I think it was pretty nice environment to grow up in because I was I know when I got in the army of that guys out with station with a never been friends with anybody from a different background. You know and I felt like I grew up in in a good background. I had friends from all kinds of places. So what was your father from Paradise West Kentucky? He was actually born down the road and Mercer Kentucky but he ended up over paradise because his father was a was a carpenter and he'd he'd work he'd stay three months inner town rent a house and when the job was done need police family and move to the next time. My Dad went to something like eleven different elementary schools and many different high schools because his father moved around so much but when he would get jobs My grandfather get her job in Dimapur my father and my end up in paradise with all of his cousins from the Smith side of the family. My mother was more raised in less. Did anyone from your family work in the coal industry. No I mean I'm I few cousins did but most of them got out. Most of them went to Lavelle Dayton. Ohio Detroit for Working Factories or Chicago. So you have a pretty famous song called Paradise That's about Paradise Kentucky and how beautiful it is and how the main character in your song wants to go back there. But his father tells them that it's basically too late because it's been hauled away by the coal trains Did you see that happen to paradise that was in the Army am? Dad sent me a a newspaper cleven because he knew much like paradise when we would go there in. My child will go there as much as often as we could see my mother's sisters and my dad's family and He sent me this clipping said. That's IT paradise is gone. You know they bought up the town toward the town down and strip mine the whole area so I wrote the song probably just after the army. I wrote my Dad. I realized that years later that I just want my dad. I put him in the song so he would know. He's a country songwriter. He was a huge country music fan. I used to sing Hank. Williams senior Steph Form Earns Time Roy. Acuff put on a show for him. I I learned to play guitar. So let's let's hear Paradise and this is from your nineteen seventy-one debut album. John Prime. When a child the family would travel down the Western Kentucky where my parents were born backwards down. Let's all then member so many times from them. A warm and daddy won't take me back. Burke County down by the Green never where they're William saw remastered. Do Mr Bean go train all. Sometimes we travel damn Green River. The fan the no prison down by review where the AIR SPILL LAX. We shoot with our buddy the palm was all we would do and daddy won't take me back. View says John Cryan famous paradise from his nineteen seventy-one Debut album called John Prime so You grew up with a lot of country music because of your father. Did you sounds like you turn toward it as opposed to Rebelling against it. Oh Yeah I mean I well I mean I grew up was whacking role but when I learned how to play the guitar from my oldest better. Dave Davis ten years older than me and he was. He tired himself play federal and Mandolin Guitar and Banjo and So he came from like an old timey country music thing and also he's. He's big into the the folk boom early sixties and so when he told me to play guitar. That's the kind of music I learned to play. Because that's where he taught me. He gave me a car fan recognition. I learned all those songs and not too long after that I started writing ranch. Fourteen and my my melodies always came out like old old time and country stuff and at the same time. I was trying to Please DADDY WANTED TO SING. Some of his favorite songs that he listened to the radio on and So I've learned Other entire Hank Williams senior album live record. Well Stage Patter in between. I used to repeat the pattern in between the songs. You know I did everything but but Skip when the record we just learned learned it verbatim. Your father died. When he was fifty five he had a massive heart attack on the front porch of your home. How old were you when that happened? I was twenty four M. my first record was a month away from being released. So you never heard about A tape recorder from from another handing and I had a quarter inch tape. Took it to the House and play that record form and The last on records is paradise so when that song came on he got up and walked into. The dining room was dark in there and he sat in the dining room. Well Paradise Play and came back in the room afterwards. I asked him. I left left the room when I I called it here song. Because he knew it was his story and he said he wanted pretend it was on the jukebox. But I think he just didn't see me see him deers in his as he wasn't it wasn't accusing sick.

Sam Stone on the Phoenix George Floyd protests plus the Trump tweet concerning Phoenix Light Rail funding.

"You are listening to the conservative circus I and your ringmaster James. T Harrison into ring. We have SAM stone. He's the chief of staff for city councilman Saudi, Cisco, and Sal, we had these sorry Sam. We had these protests. Break out all across the united. States of course right here in Phoenix as well, but I think overall our police handle it very well. What's the latest? You can give us on that? You know we just got done talking to the police commander. Here's liaison for the city and I gotTA. Tell you I think our police did a fantastic job last night. In some incredibly tough circumstances I mean they really tried to respect. The anger of these protesters at what was without question and and unconscionable act at least is what we've seen on video but that didn't happen here. Right I, mean the CENEX police department had nothing to do with that incident There has been obviously a lot of scrutiny on them I think they do a magnificent job. We are one hundred percent supportive of what they've done and last night. You know they were under siege I mean. Mean these folks are trying to break in and essentially burn down the police station here just the way they did, and they hear it would have been police headquarters just the way they didn't Minnesota and that kind of rioting and looting, and the behavior that we've seen across the country. The got out of control. It didn't get out of Control and Phoenix because the Phoenix Department is as good as any police department in this country. To agree with you one hundred percent you know I got my. You know my issues sometimes with the leadership when it comes to protecting the city in this fashion they have a stellar track record and when I saw what was going down last night I'm like you know I. Don't know why you try that. Because in Phoenix, we don't play that with the police. Police and that became obvious last night. So thank you for that. Update. I gotta ask you though Samson gotta ask the Phoenix Light Rail project is getting another one hundred million dollars from the federal government. We're talking A. we're talking to president. Trump is administration. It was tweeted out there. I gotTa ask you what the Hell is up with the light rail and president trump. Well what's up is is president. Trump's continual hyperbole. I look I James I. Like the Guy I think he's done a great job. But he's a little bit off base sometimes on twitter. And this is another case of that that the local media ran with without actually doing their jobs, not shocking to all of us who? So this hundred million dollars. They released as part of a pre existing five hundred million dollars. That's already been programmed for the South Central. Light Rail expansion so basically? They're just giving us the money that they've already told us there that we were going to get. And, so this would. Articles saying that one hundred. Hundred dollars more and then as a total of five hundred million dollars, this is just president trump, being president, trump and the in the media running with it. Yeah and running with it without knowing what they're talking about. I did have one station who contacted us yesterday and asked and I clarified it for them, and but you have you know the Arizona Republic and all these other TV stations running around saying Oh look trump gave us another hundred million dollars for Light Rail. He loves Light Rail, even though sal to see and sandstone these guys. They oppose it. But so. Come on what's so funny. So funny to me as even even when I see headlines like that, I've been so wrong in the past in doubting that I, just like Oh okay well. We'll see how this pans out. In the meantime, the man still has my support. Mine Too I. Don't agree with him on this I. Don't have to agree with any politician under percent and James Actually I think this is one of the most important points anyone can make if you're hearing from politician and they're telling you everything one hundred percent. What you? WanNa. Hear. You're talking to Aligarh.
