The Democratic Governors of all three states say the fires a consequence of climate change taking aim donald trump ahead of. His visit today to California for a five briefing. It's maddening right now that when we have this cosmic challenge to our communities with the entire west coast of the US on fire to have a president to deny that these are not just wildfires these a climate fires Washington governor Jay Inslee said it's an unmasks indoor trump rally in Nevada. The president falsely blamed inadequate forest management for the fire has ignoring the climate crisis warnings. Public health officials already warning Americans about the need to prepare half corona virus threaten early February when Donald trump called it deadly stuff in a private conversation that is only now come to light at the time. The virus was mostly a problem in China with just eleven cases confirmed in the US. There was uncertainty about how the US ultimately would be affected and top officials would deliver some mixed messages along the way but their overall thrust was to. Take things seriously we're preparing as if this is a pandemic Dr Nancy Musani of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told reporters on February fifth. This is just good common sense public health trump however had allowed a megaphone. Then he's health experts, and in public, he was playing down the threat three days after delivering his deadly assessment in private coal with journalists Bob Woodward he told the New Hampshire rally on February ten it's going to be fine. Trump's acknowledgement in Woodward's new book rage that he was minimizing the severity of the virus in public to avoid causing panic triggered waves of criticism that he wasn't leveling with the American people and was instead seeking to protect the stock market. Critics have long noted how trump's public comments failed to sync up with those of public health officials contributing to confusion among Americans as trump left for on February twenty third. He told reporters that the virus was very much under control and that the small number of infected people in the US were very well confined. Six months later and over six million people have the infection in the United States and nearly two hundred thousand have died. Meanwhile, a new report alleges that health and Human Services, Department spokesperson Michael Caputo and his team tried to use his position to change the CDC reports on the viruses progression. The report alleges health and Human Services Communications aides complained in emails. The reports would undermine the president's optimistic message about how he's administration handled. The pandemic Caputo worked as a political operative and a trump campaign staffer before the president appointed him to the HHS in April. The report says since then Caputo has made substantial efforts to alter the CDC reports and even halt their release to be more aligned with the president's message and to give the impression the US is turning a corner on corona virus as the election approaches.

Terry announced his retirement last week saying he felt his response to prove death had been misrepresented and politicized but he said he would stay on through the end of the month Mayor Warren initially defended the chief but she said after reviewing the findings of an internal probe she felt she had to act. This initial look has shown that we have a pervasive problem in the Rochester. Police Department. One that use everything through the eyes of the badge and not the citizens we serve the fallout stems from an incident back in March officers found Daniel prude running naked down the street they handcuffed him and put a hold over his head to stop him from spitting at officers.

It's Tuesday the fifteenth of September Twenty Twenty glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good Morning. I'm Megan Basham and Mary Record I up eviction protection and its consequences. The economic shutdowns in response to covid nineteen triggered widespread job loss to help homeowners tenants. The federal government in March allowed them to defer mortgage and rent payments for up to four months without losing their homes are being evicted those payment deferrals though expired at the end of July. But then the Centers for Disease Control and prevention made an unprecedented move the agency tasked with addressing the nation's health issues made it illegal for landlords to evict tenants hurt by job loss world, Sarah Schwartzberg reports now on what this policy means for those who pay rent and for those who collect it. Josh Wilkins is a single dad he and his three year old daughter live in a large apartment complex just off the interstate in Layton Utah. His employer laid him off more than three months ago, a union Shimoda worker and. I make really good money when I'm working from April to July thirty first, the federal government added an additional six hundred dollars to all unemployment checks. Says that money really helped men thank God for that extra six hundred after that bonus expired president trump signed an executive order. In August that offered an extra three hundred dollars per unemployment check in Utah those payouts just kicked in. Still. Wilkin says me is tight. He's relieved that per the CDC's new order, his landlord can't victim for the rest of the year cost so much for. Two bedroom apartment you know anymore it's like four with utilities and everything psych fourteen, seventy, three, a month I. Think. I pay and. That's a lot. But many landlords. Property owners are frustrated with what they feel are policies that only help renters. The trump administration did make landlords and for mortgage payment deferral. But only if they're rental property mortgage was backed by the federal government, only a third of landlords qualified. At the same time many landlords experienced a decline in tenants paying rent. The steepest drop is in low income rentals or what the industry calls see stock. Bobby Pin Iger heads the national. Apartment Association, which is where all of our workforce lives. especially in service sectors because it's frankly more affordable January through march. Eighty percent the rents were collected in the first fifteen days of the month for C. Class Properties July it dropped thirty seven percent. As the residents are fueling economic distress. It's transferring itself over into the operators as well. Said, lack already directs the California Rental Housing Association he points out that while most landlords still paid their mortgage and collected less rent, they also had to pay to keep the lights on water companies forbearing electric companies aren't forbearing. Property taxes. We don't have forbearance here in California so all those other bills are still do. And that's what stretching property owners and really frustrating at this point once fiction bands expire tenants will have to pay back rent but landlords aren't counting on that Joel. Griffith is a financial regulation scholar at the Heritage Foundation. He skeptical most tenants will be able to pay their debts especially in a situation where somebody has not actually saved those funds to make a payment, they could certainly declare bankruptcy in many instances those landlords simply. Will Not be able to collect what is owed them. Low income housing advocates say the eviction bands are necessary without them. Thousands of people could be turned out placing them endanger diane tell heads the national low income housing coalition. It's a very important preventive measure it will. If it's upheld by the courts, it will protect thirty to forty million renters and keep them housed over the next few months. Adam Murray directs the inner city law. Center in Los Angeles he sympathizes with landlords. He also worries that when deferred rents do have to be paid struggling tenants will face eviction anyway. So he argues the federal government should give banks additional funds. So they can forgive mortgages and then landlords can forgive rent. We should put some resources as a country into bolstering those financial institutions, but require them to forgive mortgages for this period of time and then require those mortgage. Forgives us to translate into direct forgiveness. In the meantime some housing analysts worry about the future of low income housing. If landlords continue to see a drop in rent payments, Michael Tanner is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute you're going to see a deterioration of the housing stock landlords are simply going to stop fixing up apartments. The second is that landlords when have vacancy are going to be reluctant to read to low income people. if bringing in low income people person into your apartment means they may not pay the rent and you can't do anything about that. You're going to be less likely to read to them and the long term what you're gonNA do see less apartments built. That's GONNA drive up rest for everybody. Back at his apartment complex, Josh Wilkin says, if he can't pay his rent up front and ends up owing background, he believes his relationship with his landlord will save him from addiction or I'm sure they would have. Helped me out or? Send me to some programs that would. Help me out with rental assistance. Other renters may be banking on relationships, their landlords as well. Most landlords own less than five units and know the families living in them. They understand the financial pressures. These families are facing landlords are feeling the squeeze too. Reporting for World I'm Sarah Weinsberg in Layton Utah. Next up religious liberty on campus. The Department of Education. Last week released a new rule on free speech and religious liberty at public and private universities. It's got some teeth to it. Federal grants are tied to the schools protection of Students First Amendment. Rights. Public Universities are already required to uphold the constitution, but students often have to take administrators to court to enforce their rights. The new rule adds an extra incentive for universities to do what they're already supposed to do. The new rule also requires public universities to give religious student groups equal access to all the. Secular groups enjoy things like the ability to reserve meeting rooms and apply to receive funding from student fees. Now Christian groups on campus have had to fight for these benefits in the past as they're accused of Discrimination University administrators sometimes punish them for trying to uphold biblical teachings on marriage and sexuality. One of the groups in the thick of this battle is Inter varsity Christian Fellowship. That's an interdenominational. Evangelical. Ministry founded seventy nine years ago. It has chapters on nearly eight hundred campuses across the Country Greg Hal is it's director of external relations. And he joins us now to talk about this new rule good morning, Greg Good. Morning, Mary. Well, let's just start right there how this rule effect Inter varsity day to day activities the rule freezing diversity to focus on its mission and I think the best thing it does is it free students from the fear that they're going to be recognized for requiring their leaders to be Christians, and instead they can focus on serving the campus caring for their fellow students and engaging their studies as Christians it's a great opportunity for our students. Greg. That in the last few years, we've heard about fewer challenges to Christian groups on campus is that so has inter varsity faced fewer. First Amendment fights are just not hearing about it. We've had about the same number of First Amendment Challenges in less years that we have in past years they may not have risen to the level of public attention but in two cases at the University of Iowa and at Wayne State University we've had to file lawsuits to protect the students there, and in many other cases, it's just involved in extensive negotiation with the university's really across the United States What do you think is going on what's behind those kinds of challenges? I think there are two things that are happening behind campus access challenges. In the one case I think honestly, it's just a wooden reading of nondiscrimination policies. We've tried to point out in those cases. That in fact. What it means not to discriminate against religious groups is to allow them to be fully religious, which includes allowing the religion to practice its own leadership requirements and we've tried to help administrators see. A more welcoming diverse inclusive posture. Religious groups to be religious and their number of universities university? Ohio state University of Texas at Austin University of Florida have already built in to nondiscrimination policies. I think the second thing that sometimes happens. Is if it's not just a wooden reading of nondiscrimination policies, it's just a misunderstanding of what religion really is and so I've had a number of administrators they couldn't you do a Bible test. To, choose leaders and what I try to point out to them is. There's a vast difference between knowledge and beliefs and. The core issue for all religious groups has actually religious beliefs, not just knowledge, and so sometimes, it's just a misunderstanding of religion on a very rare. occasion it may be some antipathy toward religious groups but by March I, think it's a failure to understand how religion works and failure of imagination about what non-discrimination inclusion really require. Private universities are not required to protect First Amendment Rights on campus that's distinguished from the public universities. But this new rule does require private universities to follow their own written policies on freedom of expression if they want to also get federal grants, can you talk about how Christian groups have fared at private universities in recent years and will this new rule help them? Private. Universities have been just as problematic as public universities around campus access issues, and there's a host of universities where this has been an issue. My hope is that the new regulation? redefines what non-discrimination is so that it's fully inclusive of religious students I'm one of the challenges we face right now of course is that. Universities will approve some religious groups and disapprove of other religious groups and often the only distinction is the groups that have been disapproved. derecognised are ones who have religiously based leadership requirements. the new regulations require public universities to treat all religious groups equally. My hope is this sets the standard across higher education so that private universities will also read their nondiscrimination policy so that they aren't picking and choosing between religious groups, which I think violates the spirit of what they're trying to accomplish. This rule carries more weight than say an executive order because it did go through an official rulemaking process, but that means it can be changed under another. So, how much solace do you take in this as a long-term reprieve or more like a a respite? I'm hoping it's a long-term reprieve. We recognize that there is a possibility that another administration would change. Rule, but I trust that it's difficult or at least requires some thought before you change a rule like this and I think the fact that Muslim groups and Jewish groups in addition to Christian groups have all said this actually serves not just Christian groups like Inter Varsity, but it also serves religious minority groups which are particularly vulnerable to being excluded from campus if they require their leaders to be adherence to their faith. Because they don't have the resources like university does to defend themselves and so at the University of Iowa, for example, when we were derecognised so was a Hindu group of Sikhs Group the LDS group in fact, more than even the Christian groups minority religious groups that need the kind of protection. This regulation offers and I hope every administration in their commitment to. Creating, a welcoming and inclusive and diverse campus experience will support the regulations going forward.

What is it like to be a Christian in the Land Bridge Jesus was born. Five. Times a day the Muslim call to prayer washes over the city of Bethlehem. Every morning hundreds of Palestinians, moved through border checkpoints to go to work in Jerusalem about twenty minutes drive away. In nineteen twenty, two Christians made up eighty four percent of the population, of Bethlehem. One Hundred Years later only twelve percent of Bethlehem residents are. Christian. Christians make up even a smaller fraction of the entire Palestinian population less than one percent are really tiny minority.

Own political conflict between the Jadon Polish. Onto this conflict, you know things like checkpoint things like army still be you have things that you wouldn't treat you like many times. Gaza is now controlled by Hamas and SAG lives in the city of Ramallah in the West Bank. Earlier this year he helped conduct a study to identify challenges that Palestinian Christians face as a part of everyday life and what motivated some to emigrate. This is the world's most famous conflict. Robert Nicholson is president of the feels project a nonprofit that conducted the survey together with the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research and the Christians who are a minority of both Israelis and Palestinians are suffering the most they're sort of caught between a hammer and an anvil. And they're often missed and the larger story of the conflict, the ancients. Presence of Jesus followers in in the land of his birth. Ca Leland the survey team spoke with nearly a thousand Palestinian Christians to identify struggles that life in the midst of the Palestinian Israeli conflict presents. Forty eight percent of the Christian surveyed said, the dire economic situation is the most significant challenge they face. eighty-two percent worried about the absence of liberty and the rule of law. Eighty percent feared corruption in the Palestinian Authority. Notably seventy seven percent or unhappy that their children aren't learning any Christian history connected with their ancestral land. Covers Really any. Of Christian. Arc of history, and that's heartbreaking because we have a really rich history in this lab where Christianity has been. Slammed, where even Christ we have this whole political culture, this land however on curriculum choose to deny it thanks says that's not surprising, but it is concerning good it from the perspective of the end to deny this being denied the connection of the Jewish people and interactive land up and where to find their identity endo vision to Israel. Still it's a programmatic because you are netflix underlining the Jewish rights. I'm connection to the Lambeth, your undermining thyroid. The image. Shown. Themselves to beyond economic and cultural challenges living as a minority in the midst of ongoing conflict between the Arabs and Israelis poses its own set of problems. Forty four percent reported experiencing religious tension and discrimination including verbal attacks. Racial Slurs for Muslim neighbours psychic says it's not uncommon for Christians to be called Crusaders or infidels. On the other hand, eighty-three percent fear being expelled from their land being attacked by Jewish settlers or being denied their civil rights by the state of Israel. Psychic says, many Palestinian Christians feel their nothing more than pawns in the political tug of war when people took. Cushion. That just once you. Of its for Jerome L. Agenda. So if you really WANNA help Christian punish, you have to just talk their of the details but trying to look at their. In a way that will ogier personnel listenable Palestinian Christians continued to face the challenges to their freedom and economic prosperity feels President Robert Nicholson encourages action before they disappear entirely from the Holy Land. Palestinian Christians are part of a larger hole. If we look at the whole, we see that if we don't do something for these communities, they will be gone forever.

And we think we will ultimately have the support of the Palestinians. But we're going to see.

I'm Kristen Flahavan and a quick note of correction from yesterday's news and our report on the Grammy Awards I incorrectly and somewhat embarrassingly referred to the winner of several awards as Billy English. That is is not correct. Her name is of course billy Bush. My apologies for the error can't Covington and straight ahead moderating moderating trade disputes among global powers and Kim Henderson ads farm sitter to her resume. This is the world and everything in it It it is Tuesday the twenty eighth of January twenty twenty. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good Morning. I'm Nick Junior and I Mary Eggert first up trouble at the W. T. O.. The World Trade Organization. You may have heard of the WTO but maybe you don't know what it does fundamentally it's a twenty five year old association of about one hundred countries that helps to sort out global trade disputes so when one nation believes another nation has broken the agreed read upon trade rules a WTO panel of judges reviews the case and makes a recommendation. If a country doesn't agree it can appeal that recommendation to an appellate body way that then issues a final ruling. Those final rulings have been problematic for the United States for years. President Bush Obama and now trump all of them with very different views on trade have registered their dislike of those rulings by blocking the appointments of judges to the WTO panel. So now an appellate tribunal donal meant to have seven judges is down to just a single one and that person cannot issue rulings alone that hamstrings the WTO and leaves high level trade disputes beauts in limbo world. Radio Sarraj Weinsberg has our story last week. Hundreds of world leaders gathered at the annual World Economic Forum. In Switzerland went there. They raised concerns. About how world events like wars refugee crisis climate change and Brexit could affect the global economy. President trump talked about his trade war with China and how the country's unfair trade practices have heard America but he also said China is an entirely to blame the the World Trade Organization's been very unfair to the United States for many many years and Without at China wouldn't be China the China wouldn't be where they are right down in China. That was the vehicle that they use. The negative trump said the WTO has led China get away with intellectual property theft and currency PRINCI- manipulation by labeling China a developing country that status exempts Chana. The world's second largest economy from following all of the rules rules Western economies do but China's still gets the benefits of WTO membership but they got tremendous advantages by the fact that they were considered later developing and we weren't and they shouldn't be so. What did those issues have to do with the WTO's Appellate Body? Torrey Smith is a trade economist. Honest the heritage foundation she says President Bush Obama and now trump blame the appellate body for taking away the United States ability to defend itself itself from unfair trade practices. The panel of judges has consistently ruled against America's use of tariffs and duties to protect domestic industries. Really really it all boils down to the United States has been ruled against in a lot of cases that they're unhappy about And so they want to reform the system. Smith says Appellate Body critics also argue. The court has become bureaucratic original. WTO rules mandate judges must issue a final ruling within ninety days. But a dispute between airplane manufacturers Boeing and Airbus dragged on for fifteen years so there is a valid complaint there that these cases should be getting true faster. President Trump says the world trade organization needs a makeover. Its rules and dispute resolution. System are outdated Steve. Arnovitz is an international law professor at George Washington University Law School Charnwood says in the meantime by refusing new appointments to the Appellate Body. President trump can wage trade wars. And he can do so using trade tools traditionally declared unlawful by the WTO right now. Countries have brought several disputes speech against the United States over its steel aluminum tariffs. So it's a way for the United States government under this administration to stop any ruling against the United States at the World Trade Organization in fact the United States is getting immunity. Jennifer Hillman is an international trade economist. Messed at the Council on foreign relations she also served one term as a WTO Appellate Body. Judge Hillman says President. Trump's plan could backfire if there's no appellate body it can't rule against United States but it also can't hold other countries accountable. For instance you members have been threatening digital taxes on. US Tech Companies President Trump opposes them. And so what you're basically saying is when you destroy the it'd be potty. He's taken the umpire off the field. So if there's a Lotta rule breakers and you have no power to decide the cases then you really are entering the world of chaos. The other thing is that it is going to take take away. The United States is right to hold China or other countries conveyor commitment while the Appellate Body is functionless other. WTO donations want a way to resolve trade disputes so last week the EU along with sixteen other nations including China announced. They're forming an alliance alliance. It will settle trade disputes through arbitration but President Trump's stymying of the Appellate Body could be moving the WTO toward his hoped for reforms arms at the World Economic Forum last week. WTO Director General. Roberto Vito said the organization isn't functioning and needs serious change. We we have been saying for quite some time that if the WTO is to deliver It's an performance role in today's global economy. It has to be updated rated. It has to be changed. It has to be reformed. The system has not been functioning properly in many areas. That's something that we're recording for world radio. I'm Sarah Weinsberg will next up on the world and everything in it protecting religious liberty on campus earlier this month president trump signed an executive order upholding religious liberty and the right to engage in religious speech each public schools this afternoon. We're proudly announcing historic steps to protect the First Amendment right to pray in public students. The right to pray is nothing more important than that. I would say tragically. There is a growing totalitarian impulse on the far left that seeks is to punish restrict an even prohibit religious expression. That is why today my administration is issuing stronger guidance to protect religious liberty in our public public schools the trump administration also proposed new rules to protect religious organizations from unfair treatment. Those rules will affect nine federal agencies that deal with faith based groups joining us now to explain what it all means is Steve West. He writes the weekly Religious Liberty Round up for world digital is also a fellow lawyer. Good Morning Morning Steve. Good Morning Mary. Well let's start with the new protections for K.. Through twelve students. What will those do for students and teachers well? These will educate school administrators about students and teachers rights to live out their faith basically in the school environment. So they're guidelines. They make clear that students can pray or read or share religious materials outside of instructional time and participate in organized paragraphs things like See you at the pole or some other Prayer the groups or Bible Studies on the same basis as other extracurricular groups meet and the same same poultry for teachers well. Students already have constitutionally Stanley protected rights on campus right. The Supreme Court's made that clear over and over again. So is this really necessary. Well it is. It is and it's not just advice you know. Public schools could lose federal funds. That they don't certify every year that they don't have a policy in place that restrict says so the guidance has some real teeth and the other thing is it's it's become increasingly recently. Common to hear about school officials setting out religion whether it's because they're ignorant about the law or they fear controversy. Are there just downright. Hostile toured religious expression. I can give you a good example of that. That would be chase windebank in two thousand fifteen. He was a sophomore Pine Creek High School in Colorado Springs and he started a prayer group of students during a free period that grew to around ninety students at one time until the schools shut it down so they tried to work that out but it actually took a lawsuit to turn it around. Some of this is a part of cultural devaluation of religious liberty and particularly among elites and and that includes educational elites who just don't think religious liberty is all that important Jordan or really has a place in public life at you know being religious somehow back quarter bigoted and that's just not what most people think. So that's a K.. Through twelve there's something something in these roles as well for Christian colleges and universities. Tell us about that there. Sure is and these are rules not just guidance like the previous That I was talking about. They do a lot toward ensuring that a college universities not treated differently. Just because it's faith-based back during the Obama Administration Religious institutions were treated differently than their secular oculus counterparts in federal grant making so these roles really level the ground and ensuring that Christian colleges for that matter any religious college or university or eligible for federal federal grants on the same basis as similar secular groups. Again there's teeth in this. Because if they don't comply then they may lose their ability to receive a federal grant can't k.. Through twelve universities and colleges what about the other rules we mentioned all these. Don't deal just with schools there. What are some of those well? They're really all very similar to the ones that I spoke about in department of Education. So there's eight. Other federal agencies that administer grants they would impact religious organizations from agriculture to Labor to Homeland Security. See there's lots of religious social service agencies get engaged in poverty relief for taking care of the homeless or working with refugees that are held by the rules if they get a federal grant. They're on equal footing with secular groups that get federal funds. They can't be discriminated against in that. And that's even true for states. What's that had? These so called Blaine amendments which are just state constitutional amendments that prohibited aid to religious groups so states or local governments discriminate based on religion. They risk the cutoff of federal funds. Well I probably know the answer to this. But is this the end of the story. It Harley every is these or propose rules roles so now there's a public comment period before they can be finalized and of course they can be challenged in court but I really think their own firm ground Because of a case decided a couple of years ago called Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia Versus comber Supreme Court founded discriminatory to exclude religious institutions from certain government programs simply because also their religious so we really have caused to be hopeful. Yes we do. Steve West Rights Liberties. That's the weekly Religious Liberty Roundup for World Digital Steve. Thanks for joining joining us today. Thank you Mary No. You can't judge a book by its cover but we do. Let me tell you a story about a member of twenty four hour fitness at guy who literally judged his Jim by the name. Dan Hill was working out in the pool. It was around midnight but when he got out of the pool the place seemed eerily quiet. He told TV station K. S. T. NEAR HIS HOMETOWN OF SANDY UTAH. What happened next taxed? Got Out and tried off and walked out and and there's just nobody I mean there's no one at the desk and I'm I'm usually here weights. clanking you know from people in the back and stuff stuff and when he pushed on the front door to leave it didn't open. It was locked so he called for help I called Sani dispatch to said. Hey I'm locked in the twenty four hour fitness up here. Say there's a long pause and I can hear some snickering. Where police soon rescued him naturally? Naturally he thought twenty four hour fitness meant fitness. Twenty four hours a day but it turns out some locations closed between midnight and four a M. No no hard feelings though. Dan still loves his JIM but now he wants to call it. The twenty hour fitness hits the world and everything in it Today is Tuesday January twenty eighth. You're listening to the world and everything in it and we're so glad you are good morning. I'm Hi Mary and I'm nick. I'm coming next. Another in our occasional series notable speeches past and present today an excerpt purpose of a recent message from James Forsyth. Senior Pastor of McLean Presbyterian church outside Washington pastor forsyth recently spoke to staffers on Capitol Title Hill during a regular meeting called faith and law. That's where public servants gathered to think. About how faith informs the Public Square for sites message is is titled The pitfalls of Political Faith. He identifies three mistakes. Christians make when considering the role of politics in their lives. Let's listen CS Lewis. You've heard of him famous oxbridge professor most famous for writing the chronicles of Narnia. Also wrote a great little book called the screw Tape Letters. He imagines the advice that a senior demon would pass on to junior demon if the goal was to make Christianity completely ineffectual. How would you go about doing that? In one section. The senior Demon addresses the connection between Christianity and politics. And this is what he's US certainly. We do not want men to allow their Christianity Ninety to flow over into their political life for the establishment of anything wake are really just society would be a major disaster astor on the other hand we do want and want very much to make men treat Christianity as a means preferably of course as a means to their own advancement but failing that as a means to anything even to social justice. Now I love this section action because it really captures the tension because on one hand our faith gives us unbelievable resources unbelievable resources to make a a profound difference in this world on the other hand as the demon points eight. If we don't understand the relationship between between our faith and our politics we actually end up neutering both of them. We have to understand how these things things relate together and so for the sake of faithfulness to God. And indeed are fruitfulness and the world. We're GONNA talk about some of the dangers. That pitfalls of a political will faith looking forward to sharing a three of them with you number. One underestimating the importance of politics cardio to a two thousand nineteen research study. Only seventeen percent of Americans say they trust the government in Washington. To do what is rights. It's even most of the time this contempt this cultural milieu. That we are in has also bred a kind of cynicism in our churches where you'll now have a contingent that would suggest that what the church should really is simply transcend politics and preach the gospel. The cherishing Christians shouldn't get all that much involved in in the swamp. This would be a terrible pitfall for us to fall into. To underestimate made the importance of politics governments. We believe are a good thing in fact we even believe that they were God's odds idea so we don't think of government we don't think of politics as as a kind of necessary evil we think of them as as a positive good good has been created by God and I hope that that's an encouragement to us and encouragement to you as we work God has ordained dimmed your work for the welfare of humanity and the opposition the stress. The problems are worth it. They're worth it. Don't give up where politics is done purely. The answer is to do it better not to give up all number one is underestimating underestimating. The importance of politics but number do overestimating the importance of politics. Politics has what we call a total leising temptation. It makes you feel like everything depends on it is just not true. It's not true practically is certainly not true. Theologically listen we step back and think about theological framework of our engagement. Here we understand go. It has created created a beautiful economy where our live actually matter the lives we lead actually matter actually through our lives he brings a boat his purposes here on earth. It's an incredible privilege to be used by the God of the universe and yet at the same time we remember you know he's still in control. This is not hurrying and scurrying around worried about how he can hold his world together and cold things together the seams and so we we recognize that whether our candidate wins or loses God's still rules and rates and this is really freeing it's a really freeing thing because enables us to attack our work with vigor 'cause our work matters and yet also to trust it all to the large of history piffle one under points politics pitfall to overestimate the importance. The politics put forth three tying Jesus to your political party. We've said right said that individual Christians can and and should be engaged in politics that our faith will inform the issues that we're passionate boat and not just that are faithful even inform the kind of solutions we think should be pursuit. We should also say that. It's right for a Christian to align themselves with a political party there the vehicles through which good work can be done. I'm progress can be made but we must be very careful not to conflate the two as Christians. We don't ask who say does this. Jesus on we ask. Are we on Jesus site. We don't ask. Does Jesus Elaine with my party we asked do I align with with Jesus and then we follow him. We follow him into politics. We love our faith to overflow into our life Jesus drives our political action the other way around. Cs Lewis scrutiny bladders friends. Don't make the demons happy right. Don't make that even savvy avoid these pitfalls allow your Christianity flew over into your political. I don't make us more. Faithful to God or fruitful that is pastor James Forsyth speaking to Capitol Hill staff at the faith in law Friday Forum Today is Tuesday January twenty eighth good morning.

We actually asked each other not really want to go through this because it was rough and it helps when you talk to people about it when you when you conversation with it and with two guys like yourselves. ELVES You know it helps me feel better and I know it helps a lot of people out there. They just have a conversation with somebody about it. Because I know it's bothering a lot of people at this point in time. Yeah so I'm going to say real quick in light of what happened yesterday when asked if we wanted to jump on yesterday and I told him I said I don't know if I could do it I don't know if I could could get through it man 'cause I was you see me crying.

TJ In the show notes to that Youtube video so real quick out just read the this was not the original story the original broke by TMZ. But I will read the ESPN report. Here real quick so this was from yesterday. NBA Legend Kobe. Bryant and one of his daughters were among nine. People Killed Saturday in a helicopter crash in calabasas California a source confirmed to Espn Bryant was forty one. Bryant was on his way to a youth basketball game with his daughter. Gina Thirteen when the helicopter crashed Los Angeles County. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in a news conference. There were no survivors and according to the flight manifest nine people on board the article goes on to talk about a lot of other things. There were other people on this airplane or a helicopter. We don't want to forget about those people because every single life is is precious Not just Kobe's the saddest part. Is that a couple of these. Were Young Ladies There was a baseball coach. who had some experience Coaching Minor Minor League. Baseball in the CAPE COD league's On board this plane as well or and this helicopter as well And I actually heard limiting Bakersville. I heard about the helicopter crash crash. 'cause calabasas is obviously home of the Kardashians Rifi with famous for but I heard about the crash earlier at before anything I think came out with Kobe. Bryant like maybe like an hour before they heard that there was a helicopter crash Like an hour away from me so what I WANNA. What do here is I'm just I'm just going to let you guys talk about this. I'm going to start with Cheryl because he's our gas. We only got him for about about thirty. Forty minutes here. Gerald just as a Laker Fan. You know and and this coming on the heels of Lebron passing him On the all time list Tell us just you know about that about the day before what happened. What your thoughts were on that because that was a cool moment and then just how you know this went? The last couple of days have been few. Because I know there's been we don't usually do shows where we focus John Folks who die. We did it for Stanley. I think we did it for Bush. Forty one but give us your thoughts Gerald again starting with if you would Saturday's seventy sixers. Yeah during that game Lebron James You know as the Star player for the Los Angeles Lakers. He passed coby Bryan on the all time scoring list He passed him for third. So now Lebron James is third in third place and Kobe. Bryant is in fourth place. Kobe quickly sent out a tweet acknowledging the passing and also congratulating Lebron's on the changeover. And you know it was a very respectful and thoughtful tweet and it also showcased today. You know the his verbiage to have the game move forward and do always look forward for the future and records are always made to be broken but the brilliance and excellence of individuals are still there that play that game and it was funny because later on it tests were recording this today. We learned that Lebron James and Kobe spoke that night on the phone so they did have a phone conversation in which you know Koby actually formally congratulated Lebron so they did actually speak to each other the night before Kobe passed away. And you said you heard the news beforehand. I mean I got the news really quickly once. TMZ DOT COM. Got It when once. TMZ gets it. They sink their teeth in their. You know a story real quick like that and the word spread like wildfire. I got a call from my wife. Notify me of it. Tried to verify it before I go ahead and spread any of it. Any further Teams he's like crashed For just a few minutes because either they were resetting it to go ahead and pop the story on their but their site was down for a period of time and CNN. The end was only reporting a crash. They didn't indicate exactly who isn't a crash was until Adrian Warshafsky lead. NBA writer out there. And who gets all the scoops basically instead of this time that. TMZ got it this time. But for basketball's usually Adrian Roszkowski and he. He confirmed that it was Kobe in there. And all my Gosh my heart sank my chest became heavy and it just it was hard to breathe and and just knowing that someone who was a major part of your life and to someone that you had admired and respected so much for so long is no longer with with you. And he's actually several years younger than me. He's nine years younger than forty one young enemy at. He had so much left to give. In fact he was his production company was well underway. He had just won the academy award for Deer Basketball. I mean his life as far as being a father his future here for his four girls that he has or that he had just you know it seemingly was going to be even better than his plan career and unfortunately that you know oh ended up not being the case. Tell us like what this means to like Laker nation. I mean is this. What do you expect from Laker nation of this gun? Hunch this is definitely a gut punch and this is devastation For every single Lakers fans out there worldwide. I mean his name when you're known by only one name out there about your MJ. Your shack very popular name for people to name their dogs to exactly and he's known worldwide. I mean I've spoken to people today. That have been in contact with people overseas China Australia Europe. I mean Italy where he grew up Because his dad played in Europe in Italy and all that they actually they're actually going to honor him the entire and we're going to mourn him for a whole week. Yeah in Italy. Exactly because you know multi-lingual he absolutely he was multi-lingual knew several several languages. I remember him in recent game against the Dallas Mavericks. He came from behind to superstar. Look Dodge and spoke to him actually said some smack tomb behind his back. So Luca turnaround was and it was Kobe Bryant that he was obviously very shocked and very pleased to see him. But it just goes to show you that you tell. The man had as far as knowing so many different languages being able to communicate. I mean he would often have press conferences in Italian when Tyne reporter would ask him a question. In Spanish he would quote Peop- In Spanish and he just he was that good at at everything he he wanted to do and his drive his work ethic his mentality is determination. He did not want to lose. He didn't WANNA go ahead and lose at anything. I remember conversation earlier today. That's now on the Lakers fast-break podcast APPs on the Lakers fast-break podcast APPs with Lakers. And if you're a Laker fan I highly just you going there for great conversation and people are helping each other on that side as we speak He communicated to me that Kobe's drive even off. The floor was so great that you didn't even want. His girls do beat him in monopoly. So I guess you right there. I mean he would go ahead and get get you know. Get all the real estate that he wouldn't trade. He wouldn't do anything he would. Just go ahead and do what he can to win the game and that's the type of Mama mentality that he had I want to ask Casa question here Big Haas yesterday Sometime after this happened There was a tweet from a guy who he had A. Ah I guess a tumultuous relationship with with Shaquille O'Neil with O'Neil tweeting out. I really lost a brother. We are still the best deal ever were created. That's never going to change. I have lost a brother but I have a little brother but I really lost brother yesterday so he also. I said I'm not doing well. I'm sick now. We know there was a lot of I dunno animosity but tell us about that and like your reaction to Shaquille. O'Neal's tweet okay. I'll get to that but first of all. I just want to say that you know like like Gerald I was I was out I was actually. I see an indoor waterpark. Where my daughters and my when my daughter and my sons and my wife and a family friend was? That's why we you didn't podcast yesterday. I don't know canoes to you. Didn't know you didn't know I was late. Okay I thought Walter cronkite there no you weren't. We had a family friend with us Affectionately call Auntie Catherine shouts out to anti-cancer you know who you are. We love you so much and she literally we had. We were sitting in an area eating some pizza and we had our our our clothes and our phones and stuff in another little area and she had walked walk over. Check her phone because she's a nurse so she was just checking awesome stuff and I was kind of like you know as she walked over. She grabbed her phone. I'm looking at her now. is about to make fun of her. Being her phone and her eyes got wide she liked her. She stood like real straight and she walks over to me with the phone facing me right and she had to walk a good thirty feet with the phone facing me and she pushed up to in his TMZ easy. Kobe Bryant Dead in helicopter crash and I just yelled out. You are lying like that right and I'm just like this cannot be true. This cannot be true So I get on my phone and like okay. Let's see if CNN or or NBC or AP. EP or something. Reuters is something is you know carrying this as well and sure enough about four or five outlets that you know we might consider reputable had it had the same thing and I just slump back in a chair and was really like just crestfallen. I mean I had a disdain for Kobe but it was a disdain of respect because because I loved Michael Jordan so much yeah me too and this dude I saw so much Jordan him in I grew up with Jordan. So shorter's a lot more than there is in Lebron by a right but most definitely and I just you know house like look at so. You're trying to. He's trying to walk like Jordan. He's trying to stick his tongue and he's got his his kneepads light his knee. The knee brace like Jordan. He's trying to learn to do this. And this you know no. He's in his speech pattern for awhile was jordan-esque and I just. He called it. The game of basketball during the yeah. Yeah and then but the thing was was all those other on the court he was that fiery competitor like Jordan. And you know no I respected his game. I respected the hell out of whom as a player but because I held Jordan in such high regard to see such a viable threat to that that iconic legacy of Jordan led me to have a little disdain for him same here and and you know I just I had to hold it together because my my my wife Sam she's like don't you cry these kids don't you cry for any of these kids. Because she could see she can see it in my face. You know and we're sitting in. I'm just like hold it together with the kids home together. You know we were about an our from the house so we had the drive home. You know and I'm still trying to keep it together. But my thoughts kept running back running back to Kobe and back to Kobe. Kobe and I get home and I turn on the TV and I've forgotten that when I left I had. ESPN on so when I turn the TV on a course course ESPN comes back on and I think it was Stephen. A Stephen a Smith was talking about Kobe and I just sat down on the bed. The foot of the bed. I and I just balled in like right now my my throat is clinching up talking about this and is just what how anybody would answer me. Why why eight years younger than me? What is it about him that is making 'cause this is the thing like what do you know what I I know what you're going to ask right? What is what about him? Someone that I I had A. And he's disdain unique I mean no he profiled this way with Stanley very much with Michael Jackson. Remember when Michael Jackson and died you know especially with my African American Co workers that seem I mean they were sobbing and this was i. I didn't come into contact with many many people yesterday as in person to to to see this as a reaction person but from what I've seen it's been very very similar to that. You know I think I think Especially in African American culture. Those people that are largely you doing well and excelling in life we hold them close in our hearts. You know what I mean. Because there's so much the negative out there about us you know must like Lebron except for that one that one thing what did you hear about Colby in the negative. Yeah you know what I'm saying. And that was of course blown out of proportion to yeah. Well let's let's not even go about that. You know that that happened you know but to see him bounce back from that you know. Most importantly off the court and people talked about him playing on the court. I was like that was his refuge but off the court to repair his relationship with his wife to raise those kids and to do all the things he was doing off the the court and to see him actually getting into the second phase of his life where he had he had run out of a little bit of that Piss and vinegar that he had you know oh he had that he you know he was always competitive and even off the court in his other ventures. He was just as driven but you could see that. He was way more introspective. He was always introspective perspective. But he had he had you could see that he had gone into a deep level of introspection and self realization and self actualization of himself and and the world around him and he had become. You could see it. You know even developing more. But he had become way more. I I don't know what to say I. I don't know how to say it but just I guess for lack of a better term would sure I can't think of a better synonym right now. He had become so much more mature and and even in his even his trash talking and things like that it it had changed and it was I was I was very interested to see the second phase play out and I feel like we were robbed with that. You know what I mean so for us in like like I was saying you know in the African American culture in African American communities. You know there's so much negative out there about us to see someone excelling in business excelling in the second phase out after what you know. What a lot of people think that we're good for you know entertaining? You know playing sports singing. You know stuff like that NAM for him to go and be in going into business and his production company and doing things that other people think are too cerebral for people that look like us to do and and be great at you know winning an Oscar for his short and everything that you know to you see that that burgeoning flame that second flame because if the first flame was amazing it was a just a son son Sunray. He's he's just a sunray on the court But to see that second flame beginning to light and to probably you you know if he if he was anything like he was on the court he was GonNa make that one. Become another ray of sun to see that extinguished so soon and and just as it was really getting getting started just really starting to spark was very saddening and s for shack and him. You Know Scott I want to hear from both of you on this. I know I know I know that when shack says he lost a brother I can. Totally totally can relate to what he's saying. You know what I mean because we argued like brothers. Yes that's that's what I was. Just GonNa say that they but they loved each other. Yeah like yeah I mean we when you have family you may not like your your family members all the time right. You always loved him. You always loved. You always want them to see to see them do well. And when they're in pain or when they're they're they're down no matter what the situation is even in your dislike. You may begrudgingly do it. But you're going to help him. You know what I'm saying. I mean I don't talk to my sister much my my second sister. Not My baby sister put one in the middle. I don't talk to her much and It's just just how it is. You know various days that I won't get into but guess what if I got a call and she was in trouble. I'm in the car. You know what I mean if I got a call she was had perished I would I would. Oh you know right. You know what I'm saying and the whole thing about where. He kind address list on Kobe. And they had this rivalry about I. Can I can win without you. And they both went one without each other. You know and all of that. That's just that's that's basically like a sibling. Rivalry you unless we can say it. Big Houses you know if you see the twitter account Out of Jackson one of the last things that Kobe did was Was Something Shack Shack son recently left UCLA UCLA because he wasn't good enough playing time in his currently undecided and where he wants to transfer to and one of the last things that Koby did was in the morning that he perished i. Around eight o'clock he sent out a text to see if Shacks on was okay and unfortunately Jackson replied to wait Kobe he had already been in the crashed. been involved the crash by that time but just one of the last things that he did was just shokair occurs someone he example so just to make mean okay. That relationship was very much like brothers very much like brothers that are close. You know you have that you have that this like in your your times where you're going through lows but you always have that love and the love is the foundation so you know I totally understand what she said. I totally related where he was coming from and I totally respect him for saying that. Because you know there's still people out there that that believe they didn't like each other so you know. Yeah well all right well so I appreciate that so I I want to move off this slightly just to slight degree for for a second here because there's something tied to this A little bit that I think both of you brought up and I know I thought of and I saw multiple people talking about. And if it's I think pretty well with this she'll show and that's when this news first broke especially the source. I I immediately tried to verify it. You guys both mentioned that you guys both try made sure that you verified it as well it. It's interesting that careful in verifying the Cisco those people came out and said this is fake. This is fake and like it's literally the first thing I did. was I typed in Google Kobe Bryant dead hoax yet. And there's been so many this. I mean there was a hoax about tiger woods. There's been hoaxes about so many people. What is it with like you know what if we would have read this story? Ten years ago nobody would have questioned it right. You know At all and now we're in times where you really do have this narrative of somewhat fake news where you know. There's people who are just looking to get clicks onto their website and stuff like that so I mean is it what I'm curious here is like are there certain sources knowing like how many sources are out there. That are untrustworthy. That you guys will will really say okay. This seems to be something that I would trust. What particular sources did you guys look at this? Because that's what I'm I'm curious about that. and sort of an a tangent onto this Llama added even tangent even further because as it was being reported there were you would normally think are reputable sites like for instance. A local news station reported that all four of Kobe daughters were killed. And that's something a lot. A lot of people based off of what they saw reporting that and reposting that and reach me tweeting. That you know for awhile is communicated that all four up his children. The youngest is only like six months old. Yeah so it's it was devastating to even hear that going on and also former teammate. Rick Fox Fox was believed at some point I heard that as well that he and his daughter on a plane on exactly so that was something eroneous even reported to so I I I like I said when. TMZ is is usually you know. I know they get a lot lot of a lot of crap for what they would they do. Sometimes but you know when when they're on the ball they're on the ball faster than anyone else and once I saw the reports on. TMZ again like. I said I had to confirm it. I and I went went to CNN. I and CNN was just reporting a crash near already shown the pictures but they did report who has on it. which was very unusual and I thought that was very curious curious so I waited and checked all around? You know the Internet twitter kept reposting riposting until finally when I saw on twitter that age emotionality. ESPN clarified it. Even before his the company that he works for ESPN posted it That Kobe Bryant had I knew that was it. I I'd knew that legitimized it for me because as soon as he posted that CNN you know added in Kobe. Bryant DEBT MSNBC NBC ESPN. All the other news outlets started popping Ping Ping Ping Ping. They all added on there but he seemed to be the one that kind of tiered towards okay. This is something that's reality now. Yeah and the the. I'm glad you guys brought up the Rick Fox thing because that was what I was referring to really happy that you caught the bait there. Because here's the issue that I have is people these news sources you know they might use a the story is Rick Fox. Reportedly you read this in the meat of the story but the headline is meant to be you. WanNa get that click exactly and that is it's A. It's a symptom of having way too too many news sources and you know clicks equaling dollars but dishonest reporting is dishonest reporting. As far as I'm concerned turn so but I think that also that there is a responsibility to read it and not just go and I know I've been guilty of that at times where I didn't do my due diligence and I applaud. There's reports that show up to fifty percent of people especially on social media do nothing except for read the headline the headline possibly the the subway. The sub-headline for example might say Bryant dead and Car Crash Rick box also on plane Reportedly on playing along with nine others in crashing calabasas right like something of that nature and then people just read that and they go. Oh my gosh. And they click share and then it spreads like wildfire Yup so but so putting a bit of a bowl onto this just your your final thoughts. What do you think is going to happen in the aftermath? Here obviously we were GONNA have I will say this great tributes by a lot of the teams i. I almost came to tears. Watching the I think it was the the Spurs and was at the Raptors You know both taking twenty four second violations. I think the Hawks did the same thing and multiple teams. I think did this because his number was twenty four. A couple teams took backward violations of eight seconds but so I thought that that was great. So here's how I wanna tie this up Kobe's legacy. Where does he fall? I think most of us can agree. That he's top five But where do you find. Where do you think that he falls in the Jordan? Lebron Kobe maybe magic wilt I I don't know if you throw anybody else in there our But it I think it's appropriate to sort of try to give him his place here. Where do you feel that he falls on on the all time? Greatest List number one and number two is. I can't think of any other celebrity death in in the last really since Michael Jackson because where it held this much impact. I don't know if there's any popoff for for either for either of you guys but just take get from there and you know Housego had as far as the Pantheon I guess. Yes the Pantheon. I guess I'm always GONNA Jordan one. I think Kobe's to to you know two or three. You got to mention wilt. Oh you got to mention Kareem Especially especially wilt. I'm sorry Wilt more than more than Korean. Because you know we'll just took over and he I mean he had a decided advantage but you know he just took one hundred feet tall. He didn't just phone it in he he he he tried to kill you. I think the I'm a big fan of that. That killer instinct and I think that will was one that wanted to break your. Will you know what I mean like. Kobe and like more like Jordan were just no I want. I want you to be broken man by the time I'm done with you and I think that's why I will do what he did on the court so much Lebron I would I would stick in there at at fourth. I just I feel like He. He's consent to facilitate he such a great player. And he's so great off the court you know. And that's the thing about magic Kobe Jordan Jordan to an extent and Lebron they. They're so great off. They were so great off the court and their business laws and things like that. So and I I think I would definitely round out my five with magic. You know so Jordan Koby Wilt. Lebron John in magic and magic was just so amazing as well so while we have you and I share the same top five Gerald when you were that's a damn good five and I don't think I'm gonNA deviate and names. I mean people can throw bird people. Keep Throw Oscar. P people could throw a lot of names in there. It's Dunkin get close to that list a to me it no. He's in a top ten big fundamentals in the top attend but not like nine ten nine through twelve. I put him back. Just because of the fact that you know with dunk it. There's you know he was great at at a certain set of things but you know he needed other players to May rate to make him great at. It had the floor for him and he wasn't taking a lot of people off the dribble. Oh and stuff like that and creating his own shot. He was great at a very select amount of things for Liam Niessen. He had a select set of schools. Exactly but I'm not going to deviate on the names but I am GonNa Jordan number one I think he is dominating player of all time. This comes from Lakers fan. You know it's hard for me to say that but you know when it wind the Jordan rules and I saw the way the five. So what's your journey. He you know he just just truly exemplified You know what it is. Be as great great and all that Song I'm apt to give a damn J. number two. That's a tough question right there because you could say Lebron you could say Kobe. You could say wilt You know I think magic five I think is a good spot for him. Maybe even number four You know will it was like you said so dominating dominating I mean what was it. One year he was told he doesn't pass enough so he led the League in assists. And you know just everybody spouse rebounding his block shots before they even counted block shots. You know he probably led the League natty hit you know. Have they counted as staff. I mean obviously the points notwithstanding standings so the fact that he hundred point game and all that he was to such a dominating force in his era right right and I think even more so than Kareem was at any point in time in his era and then Kareem a lot of his attributes to getting his success since championship. Not only was his great skill. Set offensively offensively. But the fact that he was in the League for such a long period of time and be able to go ahead and and the sustained greatness for such a long period of time. I think that's contribute to his success. But I would probably say that same five To force tough for me. I'm if you ask me any other day I might tell you a different said but I'm gonNA probably go right now with Kobe and Lebron to three and will number four. But you might ask me this. This time next week I might say Koby Lebron or might at the end of Kobe's Lebron's career on might say he might be ahead of Kobe. Just because the fact that will you said it may cost us that he is such a facilitator he makes. He helps his team wind in so many different ways. And that's one of the things I pointed out to Laker Tom in our conversation on Laker. Hollick's Alex Dot net Laker's fastbreak. Is Kobe won. A Kobe's best performances to me was the day he really shot horribly in game. Seven of the finals against the Boston Celtics where the Lakers Championship. Because he found other ways to win right and Lebron does that on an everyday basis. So he's not shooting well and we even see this today. At thirty Noah Noah thirty five years old in seventeenth year either. If he's not shooting well he finds other ways to help the team win right. And that's why I think Lebron at some trump wanted time is probably going to be right behind Michael. But I'm going to give it to Kobe at this point in time like you said and I think I'll go ahead and write for right now. Stays the same order with my m J. Kobe Lebron wilt and then magic. Well Gerald I know you've got to roll.

No Spin News: Best Of The Week, September 14 - September 17
"Two weeks tomorrow is the most important day of the presidential campaign. That is the first debate between DONALD TRUMP AND JOE BIDEN IN CLEVELAND, Ohio, at Case Western University and. Is Much more important for Biden than trump because Americans will be looking to see if he is up to the task of answering questions because he's been shaky and we all know that anybody paying attention knows it and you might not Aja Donald Trump but. Trump is on it whereas Joe Biden doesn't seem to be. Now I wrote a book called Killing Lincoln. You know that it was controversial because I said after he was shot President Lincoln's. Mind deteriorated quickly and he was president. And we gave absolute truthful testimony on daisy could do his job today's he could not. But Ronald Reagan made a tremendous comeback a miraculous comeback in my opinion job I can do the same thing but if he does not. On, the twenty nine, th September, then I submit to you Donald, trump will win reelection. What else do I wanNA tell you before we get into the actual story on I debut tonight on WABC radio the powerhouse in New York City. At ten PM. Ten to eleven it'll be taken the podcast in my commentary about it. every day. We looking forward to that. Okay. Bob Woodward on sixty minutes. I've no Woodward. Is You guys know he's been on the factor? Known them for I don't know thirty years. Honest reporter, but he is a man of the Washington Post which. Means he's a man of the left that was apparent last night just to set it up. He's got a new book out the First Book Road on the trump administration was not kind. All right and when Donald Trump in January of two, thousand, nineteen asked me because I was with him on. Air Force. One writing my book, the United States trump if he should cooperate with Bob Woodward I said No. I've gone overall this I don't want to be repetitive. Well, my basic reasoning was look Bob Woodward has to write a book critical of you and your administration because that's what his audience expects him to do, and his publisher Simon and Schuster expects him to do so presto. The book comes out and it's not a kind book to Donald Trump. So as part of the promotion for the Book Bob Woodward appears on Sixty minutes it was essentially all Kovin. Very little else about Donald. Trump's administration. It was a Kovin play go. I said, the president is the wrong man for the job but you're known as the reporter who doesn't put his thumb on the scale and yet at the end of this book, you do just that it's a conclusion based on evidence overwhelming evidence. That he could not rise to the occasion with the virus and tell the truth. That is not. Essentially true. It's not a conclusion. It's an opinion. That Bob Woodward puts forth and let me back that up. So. The key phrase in all of this is playing it down. You heard the tapes. President trump says to Woodward I played down the virus because I did not want panic. That is true. That's what he did. He did it in Davos Switzerland. He did it a number of times but that doesn't mean he deceived. To me in American I didn't feel deceived by President Trump I saw him cut off flights from China and I saw him cutoff flights from Europe. So I didn't feel deceived. Now you could make a case, the donald trump should have said everybody's gotTa wear masks. Everybody's got to stay away from gatherings. You could make the case it would be a legitimate case trump did not do that. With any degree of intensity. He basically put forth a hopeful point of view. And there a reason he did not want to tank the American economy, any more than it was thanking. And he succeeded in keeping the stock market at a certain level and that is vitally important. Understand one word ignores all of that. So. Your 401K, your retirement fund. Your College Fund tied into the Stock Market Stock. Market is at historic highs right now. You didn't get hurt. If you hung tough from the march plummet as I advise you to do and I, hope you took my advice. Now president trump didn't take my advice when I told him not to cooperate with Bob Woodward. Because I said, you're not GonNa win this and president trump did not win it the sixty minutes thing heard him in the short run it did with independent voters. It's just another brick in the wall that trump is as Woodward says the. Right man for the job. Now if I'm Scott Pelley and he says to me, Woodward says to me well, trump's not the right man for the job being should be president I said is Biden the right man for the job because that's what you're looking at now if you want to advance historic Anyway, let me back up the COVID. Analysis another way. France over the weekend had a record breaking. Ten thousand cases of Cova. Did mccraw. The French president. Play down it. No. He, did. India. Ninety five new cases ninety five, thousand cases of COVID. Did mody. Play down. Cove it no. This is beyond any politicians control. Right. So it's it's. A insidious disease that no matter what you do? Other than isolation which can happen in France or India or America. It's going to be around until the vaccine cops. So I just want to throw that out there. Now as I said, trump got hurt by the Woodward thing in the short run. This will be obliterated by the first debate but Biden if he's smart. Capitalizes on this. And I assume he will. The Atlantic magazine out was the trump doesn't like the troops that's all gone but this is interesting over the weekend Atlantic, which is trump hater. Parks loans are so we should do away with the Nobel Peace Prize cancel an Obe LP's fries because trump is being nominated because of his success in the middle. East. I mean Atlantic. I did make the comparison between Atlantic magazine and mad magazine and it stands. Now the only thing saving trump. Is Is. If. There was a democratic candidate who is totally in control. And Had A. Liberal but. Realistic, view of the world. Donncha. Shovel. Lose. Alienated too many people. But Biden is not that man. As, we analyze here biden will not go up against the radical left. He will not you vote for Joe Biden you're allowing. Radical left pretty much call lots I. Don't want that. Anyway, Biden himself. Is Not who we used to be I've known him twenty five years. So I ran a sound by last week I'm GONNA run it again because it's the best sound bite to show you that on any given day. Perhaps the future president of the United States Joe. Biden is incoherent go. US Kobe infected. Military. ME. US covert infected. In. America. Six, thousand, three, hundred, forty, four, thousand, seven, hundred. US Cova deaths. One, thousand, one, hundred, and eighty, nine, thousand, five, hundred, six. Military covert infected. One hundred, eighteen, thousand. Nine, hundred, eighty, four. Military Cova deaths six, thousand, one, hundred, and fourteen. Military Cova. Deaths are seven. So there isn't one word of that statement which runs thirty two seconds. That is comprehensible. Nothing not one word in the entire statement makes any sense at all. Okay. So My Submission to you is that Joe Biden helps. Donald Trump. Let's bring in Bernard Whitman. He is a democratic strategist CEO of Whitman inside strategies he used to work for Bill, Clinton and a Michael. Bloomberg. So let's start with the Biden soundbite last week in Michigan where he wasn't even close to saying anything coherent as Democrat. Did that bother you Bill thanks millwood bothers me as a Democrat is the fact that Donald Trump isn't president for three and a half years more than three and a half years, and he's rarely if anything said anything that's actually factually correct that is actually coherent. That's actually the truth. Donald trump trades in lies disinformation fear half truths, conspiracy theories, and the like and Joe Biden. Okay. So that was a was bit of a mess. He was reading something obviously wasn't prepared right? He stumbled a bit who doesn't stumble a bit. It's one thing to stumble over a few words and isolated case. It's another thing to systematically over more than three and a half years as president actually lie repeatedly to the American people, which is exactly what he did. On the coronavirus in Bob Woodward piece and you mentioned it's not that Bob. Woodward is doing it Donald Trump it's donald trump's own words are doing donald trump. All that book was was a series of interviews and Donald. Trump's own point of view his point of view to downplay the virus point of view to lie to the American people is each not trust. The American. People to handle themselves and his his disregard and his contempt frankly for the American people resulted in nearly two hundred thousand deaths and millions and millions of people out of work the worst economy in multiple generations, and and here we have a president that is running for reelection on that record. Bernard. Now, you spoke for about two minutes and ten seconds and. It was coherent. I don't believe what you said is true. But it was coherent did mody in India Lyda to his people. I didn't see what he said. So I can't on. Okay. So we have we have did mccrone in France who? Issued instructions very early on what to do not to do cove. Did he lie was people? My friends. Okay. But again, I didn't hear. Neither neither of them lied to their people and they basically presented the facts as the. Scientists presented them I. Don't feel lied to by President Trump I think he was too hopeful too optimistic. I think he played down I think that's accurate. He said it himself for the sake of the economy but I don't think he woke up in the morning and saying you know what I'm GonNa? Lie to the American. People about Kovic today because number one that would have been stupid. Because KOVIN would've on veiled the quickly correct right. Well. The fact is he called her democratic cokes. He said it was like the flu you said showing you. Know he said it was a hoax, but he was talking about the report ties of the virus not the virus itself. You the remorse is was not a hoax spilled. It's killed almost two hundred thousand people he said it was going to go away. On Earth. This is true no human being on earth who have stopped the virus from coming to the United States. He repeatedly without added science, he repeatedly ignored his advisors he repeatedly even against Dr Falcone, who was the lead guy on this suggesting the people wear masks worn asking public what once or twice he let the states into basically without any national standards the states went into a massive freefrall fighting for equipment. There's no standards. Schools are now in session without any proper equipment, any proper training, any proper guidance? The president basically said, you know what? It's not my responsibility I wash my hands of okay this is my. Leader that we got two kids in school and they're not in unsupervised. Places. So Bernard, you're overstating things as a partisan and that's not what I want to do on this program. So let's go back to the first question. Does it bother you that in thirty two seconds a potential president of the United States does not state one accurate thing and doesn't know. Doesn't know or realize see if you make a mistake verbally or I make a mistake verbally we know instantly on or why didn't mean that or I'm sorry he didn't even know what he was saying about military deaths and transmission of cove. It was complete nonsense he didn't win. No it doesn't that bother you would bothers me is the fact that this president has commenced. Lives in America. Let's move. Let's move ahead. Bernard we're on the record I asked You a simple question I'm a simple man you refuse to answer it that is not good for your team. If you're trying to persuade people to vote for Jill Biden, you have to answer direct. What bothers me bill is what bothers thirty seconds? Forty Year career you take thirty seconds or forty year career and try to use in show that JOE by. Simply not true. What isn't true For Command of actually what's going on in America and how to solve problems, how to bring people together to fight co the bring jobs back how to get healthcare returned to the American people. Then president trump ever will into take thirty seconds and say, Oh, well, he stumbled over a few words in their first incompetent is unfair at best I can show you thirty other examples of him speaking and he doesn't know what he's saying but you're submission to our audience is the Joe Biden's record of achievement is far beyond Donald Trump's and as a democrat I respect. All right as you being a Democrat I'm not gonNA argue with that. That's your opinion. One thing. Just one. The Joe Biden. Has said on the record. That is different. From what President Trump has done on the record. To Combat Cova wanting trust science fall. That's not that's that's gobbly goods fundamental. One on creates fundamental wear masks wire masks trump said wear masks where. He trump has trump held an indoor rally in Nevada against the State's regulations with no one wearing us how can you say that trump is encouraging people to wear masks which is the single greatest thing that's going to actually help stop this virus and contain the spread trump has said where the mass biden has said where the mass now I agree with you I didn't think it was a smart move so. They do. Trump is and so trump saying what I say not as I do what I'm looking for I'll seed the donald trump could have been more methodical. In the way he dealt with Cova. I'll see that now I understand the. Playing it down business and I've explained it you can either agree or grits but I have researched Joe Biden. As well as any human being on this planet. And he has not put forth one specific thing. That would have mitigated the Kovic virus. Now, one policy he was late to the game he criticized trump for stopping China flights. He has nothing if you go to his website right now and look he so nothing. Go so Joe Biden. In the Joe Biden in their vomit administration. Put forward a task force to combat pandemics. There was disabled dismembered and destroyed by the trump administration. So win in fact, this pandemic started to rear its ugly head in December. There was no way. The trump administration could actually get a hold of it because it had disassembled all the information, all the people in all the processes that actually could have helped stop the spread. and. I hope Chris. Wallace is watching US work as he should ask president trump Y or if even knew. That that. Arm of the federal government was being dissemble it'd be hard good debate very lively. Do you agree one one Real Quinn that September twenty nine tells a tale this election? I think it will tell a significant tail, but we'll have still several weeks to go. I think six weeks after that. So I think there's GonNa be a lot more runway to go. All right. Thanks for helping us out. We appreciate it. Okay Now with all the terrible news coverage that Donald trump gets it's not just here. BBC and Britain and all over the world BBC's Big News Organization. All right all the European the EU newscasts day trump. Man. them all over the place. They hate them every day. They hate him every way. All right. As you said, you go to Europe you listened to it even in Ireland Aid. Right it's all slanted CNN is big CNN internationals everywhere they take their cues from that. It's crazy. So there's a survey by Pew Pew dozen honest job. Of Fourteen countries. That were asked very, very simple question. Do you have favorable or unfavorable view of the USA. Do you have a favorable or unfavorable. View of the USA. Assorted Canada. Unfavorable up there sixty two, favorable thirty, five lowest ever recorded in Canada. The Canadian CBC hates the Trump Administration. Italy. Unfavorable fifty five, favorable forty, five now Italy traditionally. The most pro American country in Europe UK on favorable fifty-six favorable forty one lowest ever recorded. On, favourable and UK Spain on favorable fifty eight. Favorable forty. Denmark unfavorable sixty-five favorable thirty four very liberal country Denmark Sweden unfavorable sixty five same then walk favorable thirty three France unfavorable sixty-seven `wow favorable thirty three lowest ever recorded. In France Netherlands sixty, nine percent on favorable. The Dutch. Don't like us. Favorable, thirty one Germany unfavorable seventy. Favorable twenty-six that's because trump and and merckel. Friends. Okay. Belgium seventy five percent unfavorable. And twenty four, percent favorable. Let's the head of the EU in Brussels. South. Only country favorable south, Korea fifty nine favorable thirty, nine unfavorable Japan. Turned on US favourable forty one unfavorable fifty four Australia favorable thirty three lowest ever in. Australia. Unfavorable sixty four. Media driven and you know Mr, trump, let's face it come on style pretty in your face. But I thought that was interesting. Saint Louis. Out of Control in Saint Louis, right they already have more homicides now they had all last year. And this is the same pattern we see in Baltimore and Chicago in La, in New York. Murder murder murder through the roof. FBI. Reporting that murder he's up fifteen percent in the USA murder. Now an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal by Jason Riley African. American right. He says not cops going out to brutalize young black men. That's not what's happening. The reason that more young black men are shot by law enforcement in America is because there's more confrontation. So, there's more violence in the young male. African. American community. So the police have to be called to respond to that violence therefore. There's more killings. If you read Riley's column, it's based on logic. It's based on facts. I'M NOT AFRICAN AMERICANS I'm GonNa let Jason Handle that. However. There is no doubt that all across the country. The police are being demonized, but one organization wants to stop that it is the heritage action for America Organization and joining us now from Washington is Jessica Anderson. She is vice president of the H. A. and she has her organization putting a billboards pro police billboards all over actually three large cities to start. Dallas Atlanta new. York. So Jessica, why are you doing this? While you just hit it. On the head, the American people want safety insecurity. We want a clear vision on how to quell the violence and restore the peace. So these billboards have a very clear message that says you cannot have peace without the police. So for the hundreds of millions of Americans, just like me who rely on the police to keep our neighborhoods safe to respond when there's danger been completely surreal this year to see politicians pundits, the media declared that the real instigators of violence are the police and not gangs or rioters, and we WANNA push back against that and I think these billboards do it in a meaningful way at the most local level. All right. So the billboard trade no police no peace. That's going to be obviously by the far left considered a challenge to them. No justice. No peace. That's what they say. Now, your city Washington is out of control on violence level is it not? And as well, we thought about putting one here in Washington but we chose Times Square, we chose Dallas. We chose Atlanta because we looked at exactly the murder rates murders are up nearly fifty percent in New York murderous in Atlanta is up nearly one hundred, thirty percent since the protests have started and Dallas a place that you know. So many would consider a safe and secure. It's on the way to hitting the highest murder rate in over a decade, and so these are the places that need law enforcement and we want law enforcement to know that behind them San. Millions of Americans that support them want them to be allowed to do their job to keep a safe insecure. Why do you think murder rate the the other crimes are staying pretty stagnant according to the. Burglaries and robberies muggings, and that's because there's not that many opportunities in the age of Kovic. That a lot of people not out on the streets there home can break into the homes as easy when people are home. That's why the crime rate has risen in those areas. But why do you think that violent crime particularly murder is on the rise everywhere. Well I think your. Society nothing's happening really in a vacuum right now you've got everyone frustrated that we're not back at school that businesses aren't yet open they're taking to the streets they business is that are being down locked out and the atrocities of murder are really allowed to run on check in places where the police aren't allowed to do their jobs. I mean. You look at something as horrific as what happened over this weekend when a gunman shot two deputies sitting in their vehicle now thank God they've recovered they haven't been killed but I looked at that and I saw a direct assault on law and order itself, and this is a response to the rhetoric of the left which has In demonized police officers and this is a dangerous trend for the United States to take when more and more leaders pretend that it's okay to riot to burn buildings to assault officers it makes violent crime and violence worse in many ways the police not being allowed to do their jobs, it just continues to rise okay I see it a bit differently and I want you to react to I point of view on why murder is rising. Most of the murders are gang related in the big cities, they're drug gangs armed they kill each other. They kill innocent bystanders, and now as you pointed out in Los, Angeles somebody tried to assassinate to. Sheriff's deputies. Those people used to be under pressure here in New York I'll give you an example by the Street Crimes Unit undercover detectives who went into the drug ridden neighborhoods targeted gang members before they could shoot anybody. So it's a felony to carry an unlicensed firearm in New York City they thought somebody had a firearm they'd arrest them. If they indeed did there would be sentenced to hard taught they stopped the crimes and the drug gangs were less likely to carry the guns. On. The streets because they knew the street crime unit would get them. Now Mayor de Blasio, the Communist mayor of New York. DIS, banded the street crimes unit and shamefully the police. Commissioner Dermott. With since that time there has been violence. All over the city by these drug gangs. CHICAGO. Never controlled the drug gangs ever. Rahm. Emanuel for eight years now, Lori lightfoot forget it. They're not going to control the drug gangs no that in Chicago they know they can take the guns out dry by and use them because nobody's going to stop them in New York they did stop until the Blasios disbanded the unit for no reason at all. So now we have in insane. Politics causing the rise in violent crime in our nation's cities. That's my analysis and you say. I. Think we're saying similar things, which is that when police law enforcement aren't allowed to do their job people's lives are lost in. So you're agreement that they got the you know the police forces got to these violent offenders before they were actually violent goes back to the whole argument that we're making, which is that police should be allowed to keep our neighborhoods safe and secure and use any means to do that whether. It's Persepolis or it's actually on the ground as violence is happening in to quell it into push back on it and I think you know this brings up a larger conversation that America's adding. Do you redirect funds in the police departments? Do you reimagined or retool police forces when I hear that I hear examples of what you just described? New York. which basically limits the ability for officers to do their job and they're spending Laura time batting cleanup. To getting ahead of the curve when it comes to this violence, it's insane to cut police budgets. But that's what the far left wants. They don't believe criminals should be punished. They believe that it's Society's fault. Drug Gang and sell narcotics and shoot people. That's what they believe and Jessica. Thanks very much. Let us know how your campaign goes and if there's any resistance to it by the city. The way. The cities that you have the poster sent. Thank you. All, right, here's a very important story. Are you know about the to allay sheriff's deputies were shot by a cowardly assassin and you know about the people went to the hospital and did this roll it? Own. We curious about how much time you networks in the cables are going to give that exposition CNN covered it on Sunday on a breaking news level. They did not show you that tape. Union. Get that. Get about five minutes to it on Sunday, which is always a slow news day. MSNBC WE CAn't find out they don't put transcripts out any more. Nobody on my staff I can't be that cruel and make them. WATCH MSNBC. Fox News covered it extensively cost an hannity did major segments on it ABC gave it two minutes on Moore's broadcast Let's see they did use a portion of the yelling clip ABC. NBC and CBS we asked them. They don't post transcripts rundowns anymore very strange and we can't get an answer. We'll. We'll continue digging there but let's it. Put it this way the networks and CNN and MSNBC don't. WanNa show that. because. That now takes the violence into a different realm. You can assassinate police. Okay. Now people are GonNa go to Joe Biden. So what are you gonNA do just keep in mind that Mr Biden and the whole democratic apparatus didn't mention the violent protests one time in four days at they're convention not one time. That is. Almost unbelievable. One of the biggest story of the summer bigger than cove it. And they don't mention it. So the La Sheriff, Alex Villanueva, who Hannity had on last night. He's All right and he should. the mayor of the Left Wing Guy Varsity. He issued a pretty strong statement condemning this action as he had. So. Basically. What has happened in Los Angeles because the shooter is still at large, the police officers are expected to recover. Okay, and that's you know one's a mom of of a baby they are expect to recover. So the L. A. Authorities have often one, hundred, seventy, five, thousand dollars reward. For. The arrest of this shooter. All right here's what the Sheriff said GOP. Boorda supervises authorized. One hundred thousand dollar reward. We had a private donor step up enough to offer fifty thousand dollar. rewards a match that and I just got word a few minutes ago that another donor is offering twenty five, thousand dollar reward and I wanNA make a challenge. This challenge Lebron James. I want you to match that in that double that reward because I know you care about law enforcement. putting Lebron James on the spot now. Chess died Mr James yesterday on this broadcast for. Lionising Colin Kaepernick who hates America I thought that was Not a good thing to do I don't know of history. James. Going to take the bait here obviously sheriff's baiting him. We'll. We'll keep you posted on that. Very interesting. Louisville Kentucky is going to give Brianna Taylor family twelve million dollars. Because she was killed on our police rate now, the police officers not been charged with anything. because the a man with Miss Taylor. shot at them first. Now, my analysis of this whole thing was if you are going to execute a no knock warrant. Okay, which is necessary. Sometimes particularly in drug cases because if you knock and you wait, they can flush all narcotics down a toilet set them on fire, do all that stuff destroy evidence so not no not. So basically coming on in and the police often feel that these dealers are armed and dangerous. So you don't ban no knock warrants that's stupid and puts officers Jada. But if you are going to execute one, you gotta know who's in the house. And the Louisville cops did. So Brioni, Taylor was killed in the firefight between the boyfriend her boyfriend who shot at police. When he heard the door gave kicked in he says, he didn't know they were police he thought they were intruders. All right. So the city of Louisville is. Paying twelve million dollars to miss. Taylor's family. Okay. Let's go to Kathleen. CONCIERGE member on a message board Donald Trump has been around the block. Don't underestimate his reasons for talking with Woodward. Listen Kathleen. Didn't help him. So I don't underestimate or overestimate. I'm a simple man. Didn't help him. Mike concierge remember thank you. Mike I'm not a rocket scientist, but trump should been smarter than the would let would do this. Now I'll make a fortune selling his book. Margaret. I'm sure many mistakes remain the Cobra virus but in anyone's wildest dreams, do they think the Democrats would have done a better job? Yes. Yes. Marts Democrats think if Barack Obama or Joe Biden been president, they would have done a better job. Absolutely. That's what they think. James CONCIERGE member concierge marriage direct access to me it's not why I'm reading older male. But. You can ask me anything you want. So you might check that out on Bill O'Reilly Dot Com. James. Says Black lives. Matter is one of the most successful hoaxes in American history. They have recruited more useful idiots their Marx's caused than anything I've ever seen. Black live matter. Supporters Foolishly believed the cause about race. When is clearly about power? Okay. But you are talking about the black lives matter global organization gotTa make that delineation is not black lives matter the slogan it's the organization. Nicholas Abana Rigo mcmurray Pennsylvania interview with Stephen a Smith is by far the best discussion I've seen about the issues of race and sports anywhere. Both made great points have great report managed to be reformed and thought provoking an intelligent and civil matter. Yeah It can be done. Much on TV, but it can be done. Neil Siri New Orleans. Your discussion with Stephen Smith was classic absolutely fantastic and how I think all debates should be conducted honest and by staying on point we are standing up for our country down here. It's great to hear that Neil, stand up for your country in Orleans in Louisiana Hornbeck. Doesn't do much damage boy. Tough down. there. Rene Storms Mooresville North Carolina. But I'm hoping. Built I am not hearing anybody talk about. That whenever an NFL player takes a knee he is doing so on his employer's time. So any reasonable job in America where one may protests on the employees time? There are some that let you but. Believe me. In most places if you inject politics into the workplace, the corporation Says No, not in the media not in the sports world are the exceptions John Kansas City Missouri, you're absolutely correct about your forecast for the NFL just finished watching sixty minutes and I just finished watching sixty minutes of the pre-game special and it was all about social justice game haven't even started I've already had no desire to watch. A Lotta people with you on that. John Wagner Dallas Oregon outside a Portland suburb. Got My hat today Santa for America hat and we're heading to the rockies in two days. I'll be wearing it.

Say Joe but anyway, they stayed in the locker room that was a mistake. That's disrespectful but I'd rather have you guys in the locker. Room. Then getting out and denigrating the flag in public though that's my opinion. I was on WABC with Bernie and said this morning and said Greece would maybe Bernie does he says they're cowards saying locker room, which is how much But anyway. Let's do a positive thing stand up for your country. All right. Don't deal. And then get the yard sign. Put It on out there get the hat get the mugs get to stickers, spread them around.

Do You Have What It Takes?
"You're welcome back. Another episode captors podcast. Thank you so much for taking driving along with me in with folks that you truly are enjoying the journey in that. You're learning stopped ties with feedback from people ask if they listened to the podcast dean seeing what they think about the evidence that they loved it that it is very informative so i appreciate that she was going to give to contact one of the main reasons i started with podcast brass is because i saw a so much content on different youtube sites podcast and i didn't think <unk> out there is is obviously live with a lot of it is simply attaining a lot of courses political continue to divide our country and i thought to myself what can and i do remix situation better in order not to divide but to bring through his together as often intended to say that such divide between these officers in the community. This protecting conservative assures problem this way people who are members of the community is safe it to call the police review over by the police. Someone drives by a police officer on the highway. Get anxious heart starts to raise and things like that missing because they don't know what's going to happen same thing with a wig wags lights start flashing behind you so many people get nervous. Inches are sorts of fast west palm. Skit sweating is definitely most in their minds because they don't know was the app and of course we understand that particular segment is population. This happens since two more often than others so that's just is what it is. I want to really slide to do what i can in order to try to alleviate the stress on on the citizens art as well as help the officers do everything within their power to ensure interaction. Go wealth so today's episode. I really wanna talk about what do have what it takes now. We understand that i'm taking a lot of things with grandma said we understand that i'm taking some things as just the nate as a matter of fact that one should automatically lady no or maybe you don't know what i'm talking about but i think to some of these things is pretty well established so the question. We're asking today do you. You have what it takes to be a police officer. You have what it takes. There's so many viral videos going on on here. Somebody news articles that we read constantly about negative interactions with officers in one of the strategies that people are developing alleviate diminish. These negative interactions is for reform and i'm off work all working. Many organisers law enforcement action partnership on w._c._t._c. Basically in numerous other organizations are trying to work towards a common goal of at least four does drug policy reform joe policies that all think is another <music> over another format former website but he can go to owning so one of the reasons that i really wanna talk about this is because i really wanted people to understand dan that is more that can be done in order to achieve this talk more more of a positive interaction to officers who served a civil asked the questions you have take off so instead of criticizing instead of looking down upon instead of writing articles that right lots what is it you can do aw in order to help recover one of the biggest losers join join the police or you know what the job entails and how can done how could done better than go and do it show us the way show them how the police officers of whose departments begun better than how they can achieve the status of goals and achieve leave his gypsy of at least trust that we all so desperately want so that's the reason for this podcast more <unk> overall <unk> reason for this episode of mass <unk> specifically either listen. Do you have what it takes. You're not a police officer or even if you are officer. Are you still abiding the things that we're gonna talk about today. Our supervisor was biding by the things today. Are you heard you all the people to enter into law enforcement as we're discussing today so let's get into it. I really wanna talk about some of the negative opens. We've seen so many times as i mentioned earlier that there's some possible negative interactions a negative feelings emotions when able to see a uniform simplicity cruiser where the parking decides world parked on the highway going to try to enforcement will may are often pulled over to see the blue vice behind him. So what is it that we can do. We've seen so many negative media outlets did that are focusing on negative behaviors bad behaviors and often tense criminal of officers seen it with u._s._a. Today is done will removed published more than five thousand police officers who had some title disciplinary process against him a fair just because <unk> disappeared processing <unk> not that have been convicted or found guilty goal found the charges against them sustains. I think that was really should take a little better job of porting those particular situation just because officer had an allegation made against him than to be true doesn't resume the allegations roy sustained really ought to do a better job with their analysis of that regime different facebook posts that who have been revealed facebook ace groups from reveal news four g. is revealed some stuff plane group project that will be of officers in eight different agencies so you guys will check all that kind of stuff. I talked about this numerous times. Previous podcasts social media outlets left social media police officers all different derisively netted groups are talk about the border patrol ten fifteen groups basically the group that was designed over in were not resided about a member of the <unk> choose actually actually a member of the group of these racist insulting homophobic memes targeted at the very innocent is supposed to be a detaining the border and things things like that so all of this as cast is very serious light upon law enforcement overall general.

You have what it takes a look at some of this going on and not be part of the problem part of the solution. We're going to be part of the solution part of that. Solution is global justice before who's officer form. Yes we get the other side of it is we. We need good officers. We need people who are going to step up and say no criminal behavior criminal conduct step up to say no american part of kind of click or gang of roof on facebook or in real life or social media or reliable not uphold the constitution standards that we set up to enforce what's and so that's why i wanna know today. Do you have to take some. You know someone who has what attack if you do then great joined the depart their numerous departments dig begins with a little bit there are numerous departments seattle your chicago for all advertising custody. Police officers not only the advertising ties import police officers. They're doing throughout the country so they're not just being isolated there one local locale they're looking for officers potential officers throughout the trump n._p._r. Story and they actually went to place right down the street. They went to relieve a connecticut as well as other police departments around the country. I talked to a number of people and the talked to a number of different officers as far as include process many departments than seeing this downsizing in the officers. I want to join the art always been fairly well paying job however within recent times of the economy so well. Some people are blaming the lack of recruiting food in the lack of attention candidates on the upturn in the economy making get other jobs. This may not true the what some people are estimates so does recruiter. His name is under sheriff jet mortgages dr dot org in two thousand two. The name of this article is america's growing cop shortage in which submitting burnings recruiter who problem the severity of officers shoulders various ones departments department but the national trend is clear since two thousand thirteen the total number of workmen sworn officers fallen by about twenty three thousand the number of officers for tap it is down even more sharply while two point four per one hundred thousand nine hundred seventy two two one seven hundred one hundred thousand two thousand sixty recruiters blame the hot job market as what is raider skepticism the vote about launch as riches that skepticism has grown a few years led by viral videos <unk> use of force by police where hundreds of people use to apply job opening now. It's often only in whole is become more like a football team. Says under shared jet maury oregon's watson washington county his agency short about the people in the lies everyone mandatory overtime to cover all the necessary shifts is seeking out enough. New cruises is a pool time preoccupation and push the agency to change some requirements. We now allow facial hair. Laura says we allow tattoos. We allow nearing the sheriff's. The office will even hire people who admitted past use of marijuana since drivers housing been oregon though they're not allowed to use it higher since it's still federal law says that some of the expectations changed. I don't know if they wanted to as much as the previous generation he said adding that those who are interested are looking for kinder gentler version of the job so that's a gentleman had to say other articles that i read talks about this idea of recruiting being a full-time job in almost <music> added to a group of football approve will football recruiters ecologist not only talk to prospects player. They go and talk to them and the reason that they had to go and talk. The family is because they want to make sure that everybody understands what the job entails dangerous. If people think it is very rewarding career in all this kind of awesome so the recruiter will come out of the family tried to talk him out there step decision the pessimism law enforcement so i think that's actually a good idea of the probably more was needed need to do that. As time goes on there is certainly a serious problem. Let me just talk about this. Particular scepticism in viral videos in this perception that this is from the washington post nameless article is wants to be his officer job applications owner at most u._s. departments. This article was published. Two thousand eighteen. Tom jackson further down in your article says the videos of police misconduct data suitors dentist perception of american police officers or not your vocal said antoine archer director of the peace department in many people are taking back buzzes towers not by profession she said if we tend the inclusive inclusive women recover those individuals who see part of the fabric of the environment is not inclusive. You're going lose to continue now. This negative perception concerns viral videos. This article goes on to say a recent survey eight hundred college students majoring in criminal justice founded lamda. They didn't have the mischievous offsite about malta cops said shaw's sheer a criminal justice professor at the university of southern mississippi did not afraid crater increased scrutiny. This generation expects social news. They're not afraid a booster session. African american students will often deter about family. I members who were not too hot. In the idea of coming to cop and misunderstand how often officer involved shootings occur sheer suggested a college football all-stock through the whole foods. That's where nothing missions wolf. Let me just talk a little bit about african americans during this towards towards almond was his community not just black wide show but it's all talking to tickets to the black community just for a little bit. This is from the chicago reporter. The cargo was had longtime of perception in this article chicago reporter dot com more african supplied income cops of you make it to mcinnis long in two thousand seventeen with farmers highlighting tinos rates more than double that about who made up seventy percent of the total one thousand wander wander until six new hires a little bit further up more than eight thousand black applicants nearly thirty percent didn't show up for the written entrance zoom burst stephanie recruiting process. It's while seventy two percents failed the test. According to data lies about it. Many applicants who pass the test later dropped out of the process which includes extensive background the growth in psychological drug tests so this is the problem. This is a problem what detention officer black candidates are not interested if if they are interested in that song written in the do show up if they're not passing the test so this goes back to or something to have in the presidential debates with big booty judge on this is not it pushing for pete however i wanna talk a little bit about what he said. During the presidential debates in having before chuck todd was not able to hire enough officers officers listen. It's not his job first of all they put out the invitations. They plotted recruitment materials they test. They reached out to do whatever they had to do. In order to block officers to a sign up they can't force you to come written <unk> operatives touch for you commissioner to pass through it so this is this is a problem right here so it's not paul paul even though it's refreshing to see someone take stock to someone to take ownership as as a leader as he did not his fault that black officers not only depart kim blamed himself her down on the article more blackout in not just like offs historic chicago had a hard time black officers were twenty three percent the portion cigarettes by one third of america further down says rahm emanuel higher brown former media group in the number two thousand sixteen overseas recruitment which was part of the city's editor higher also officers the two thousand eighteen during the month-long campaign. The army received more than sixteen thousand patients. Thirty three percent were individuals for the five african american according to police officials at the same time superintendent eddie johnson was static of improving since two thousand sixty the nine hundred ninety people recommended for thirty percents happening through american thirty seven percent white thirty eight percent team when the main reasons is were getting this article the chicago reporter dot com says candidates are so selecting outside just read a little bit about this. It's hard to pinpoint any single reason of lack of dropping out of the process but some critics say the process is too slow in weight of detainees. Family members were on the poorest for the backing of legacy officer associations to chewy associations. Latin american. Please association from the police associated were closely with latino finalists. Whoever dropout several percentage points lower than the blast black africans need more support system throughout the provocation process accords traces ladner former director chicago thomasson resources visit. You have to have that support off job as well as <unk>. You have from being on the twenty thirteen year. The only class wolf's department coops records.

One thousand fifty did not show for the zine eight hundred thirteen failed to this is not the fault of white niners wag include a self selected varieties. The process can take years and many candidates simply move on to other opportunities with historically fewer <unk> officer are not as many legacy families to <unk> so this is the problems going on the more. They're not interested to when they do get interested. The process takes too long is not showing up for the tests failing. The test later on on goes on to talk about physical requires charles wilson chairman of the national association of course officers said prescreening exam has used to discriminate against block improves agree with that statement at all. I don't agree with this with this. National associated black law enforcement officers. I don't get it that stadium all the businesses day when they hang <unk> out on the agenda that we not to go to the zambian read regarding yard and shoot hoops. Don't get into the idea of doing daily run our how counterparts are heavily into that so they are more period from the agility. How's that how's that geared towards them. As the director of the human services department said you mean alexi group to to to encourage you to do that so encouraged lack officers black candidates to go off for daily ones not just shooting hoops back here it down and do those pushups it down. Do golsen bang amount so this. This is not something theaters. I don't agree with that. Alderman anthony deal the mike ford's hiring process systematically excluded minorities <music>. This <unk> really wipes out my words unless you gotta. We gotta understand the process. We got distinct process so this is what my businesses it's. It's going to be helping people understand. The process is going to be helping people to understand what's going on here. We can't continue to cry. Wolf can't continue to cry wolf because there isn't a woke the door in this particular sisters get up there and do the pushups situps if we think that the backgrounds getting if it's getting us marijuana if it's getting us on a as this article goes on say marijuana gets through people being squeezed marijuana people are being excluded trying people are being included because they have poor workers as african-american people are being excluded because day are in debt a lot of times credit checks are often one of these in if you have bad appointments history than you will have that credit and then because of bad credit that may exclude you from being interns long so we gotta understand this this from the time the kids are seven eight years old and start grooming them for careers in law enforcement. Krizan fire department cruises doctors lawyers. It got to get people to understand the value of credit that against people understand the value of working out then again. People understand the value of keeping the job of holding a job not going often your boston putting the java walking out. If you don't understand is that we're never gonna be able to compete in any type of market so stop crying about this kind of stuff and get get rece- off together. Get ourselves together. These legacy loops as mentioned hispanic allegations russillo get more police officers there and we can see that their numbers were actually wore. They were hired for white. Remember the numbers that i read off thirty. Seven percent were white thirty eight percent latino chicago p._d. Of all those officers so let's get it together together like people. Let's get together. Knock it off. It's nonsense so let me ask you again. You have what it takes so those things will limit just go through what i think that it takes in order to be ineffective inefficiently awesome first thing i'm gonna talk about the morality of mentioned before about these different groups gangs different confederate sympathizers going on this police departments that will deal news the plain view project. It's folks facebook. Posts the border trophy by n._p._r. Review more problematic automatic facebook post in what's really going to have to take their own seriously that is not being on people that joining the department chairs reasons white supremacists adjoining police departments for defense reasons to get access to guns weaponry access to information access to urban warfare and tactics to this you why they're doing joining the military and the joint police departments of the access to all the steps at a positive moral upstanding reason for wanting <unk>. Here's just the morality clause that i'd rather wonder in his promises. I was researching <unk>. The certain police department searching for qualified individuals want to join our lawn t if you can apply your life experiences in education saw problem and resolve conflicts. You need be what we are looking for. We seek individuals from <unk> forced law impartial promoter <music> our constitution and are willing to work with citizens to improve the quality of life in this city. Our organization has long his professionalism providing the rest services is to the citizens of the city. That's is in their job announcement publication when they're looking for police officers in new york city. Here's some of this qualifiers. I candidates will be disqualified. Convicted of a felony domestic violence misdemeanor or have been dishonorably discharged from the military candidates may also be disqualified qualified if they demonstrated history disrespected law at tendency towards violence termination from a job for poor behavior or not adjusting to discipline right if you have any of these types of problems than don't bother signing from n._y._c. This is a disqualifier from my very own city where i was a police officer. Applicants must be physically a medical capable perform the essential process of position with or without a reasonable accommodations for which avocation me preemployment post was job offer medical examination required for certain positions this will forgive her positions included drug screen uses of illegal narcotics if it candida refuses to submit to this examination itself <unk> as incre to move commission and as a voluntary withdrawal consumerism employment with the seawall swap partners so let's just talk about the qualifications and ask yourself as you listen to podcasts argue or you you know some parts based on more physical requirements requirements of drug policies that i decide. Does anyone qualified for that. Do you qualify for that. More qualified patients do possess a high school diploma or g._e._d. Their educational educational requirements most peace farm country. You only need a high school diploma or you d more and more departments arguing towards leaning towards college. Diplomas almost causes <unk>. I personally think that no less than in associates degree should be quiet with a high of mission technology aids over living in an continuing to enter into high school diploma or not enough anymore in you may need associates degree. I've corrected and analyze his officer reports sports and this is a problem people are not right straight. They're using the wrong verbs wrong. There's t h e r is one that shows possession g. h. R. e. is on shows position in space and time wash that we have the value will be able to do your job. You have what it takes are you. A citizen of the united states war character inhabits a lot of people are being disqualified a lot of people who were saying that had go more characteristics taste of some adults that are failing this criminal background process will be done. This is eliminated limited a lot of people as reggie <unk> cog aww reported on their which eliminate a lot of people that the past in their backgrounds in the job of improving combat in the military conduct in job is getting skin them out must have a valid motor vehicles licensed with a good blood records that it's all those tickets to get all those parking tickets to pay triple people up all those taxes refuse the pet which tripping people up your twenty one years old to be officer in many places because law testing the process can take the test at eighteen nineteen years old. Take the test at eighteen nineteen spend the next few years going to community college working on your associate's degree staying getting out of trouble working on driving history working on your criminal history working on your credit issues on your credit issues with taxes and the issues the more the vehicles work on all that kind of stuff. Wow you in the process so if you wanna go for the tests that most tests and this is not going to any any particular order is usually written exam damage first <unk> part of it will be some type of physical agility physical exam do some type of oral interview during this time the background process leads is to polygraph test a psychological tests. Medical tests probably another physical agility test pilot in type. You also blood test. Those are the cases. What it takes was gonna want to stress this good moral character so people are washing out being dropped out of the process because of their criminal histories because of their financial histories going through bankruptcy because of drug use many <unk> are excuse me marijuana because becoming more acceptable but if you're trying cocaine heroin or any kind of drugs visits from the process in as these legacy groups are involved beginning the process until the end of the process then other groups need to get savvy get other people involved with process on the articles that i read talked about the lady yasser richmond who said she was more women essentially she wants more women in minority and will survive this inclusive type of environment and if you're not gonna get that type of clues entitled environment you're going to have problems with including in retention to come to your department and they're not going to stay because of the lack of clues environment as possibility hostility racial <unk> these things like that so that's what it is so. I don't want people out there. Complaining about the problems joined the police join become. I'm a part of the solution not part of the problem. Come apart solution. Not part of the problem part of the problem is criminal justice reform. Yes what we need good qualified.

GSMC Social Media News Podcast Episode 243: Could There Be a New Relief Plan?
"Golden state media concepts social media. Podcast time to Hash Tag. Everything we talk about all the fun crazy stories on social media. Instagram facebook twitter to Tumbler. Probably even friendster join us as we explore the Quirky of social meets the Golden State Media Concept Social Media Podcast Gates and book though and then hello and thank you for tuning in to another episode of the GS Social Media News podcast brought to you by the MC podcast network. I am your host Shinwari Jackson in today's episode. We're GONNA be talking about the new trillion dollar cove in nineteen relief plan. Kobe Bryant I on Williamson and a young man who has made history at Princeton University. All of that coming up in today's social media news. Every time I turn around people in Congress are constantly butting heads with one another either for power. Someone's voice not being heard or maybe it's just a combination of both but it just seems that every time we turn around there seems to be more mess going on Speaker Nancy Pelosi House. Democrats are at it again. According to breaking reports they're planning to move ahead with a Friday vote on a three trillion dollar package to respond to the corona virus crisis. Nancy Pelosi and top house. Democrats will proceed with the proposal even despite all the political attacks from left and right. They're arguing that a fourteen point seven percent unemployment rate which is expected to climb proves the need for Congress to think big with a to cash strapped states and struggling Americans. The Democratic package known as the Heros Act is expected to include a number of priorities. That were left out of the previous bill which includes but not limited to cash for state and local governments rent and mortgage relief hazard pay for frontline workers and expanded mail in voting programs now. President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans object the Democratic proposal. They believe that there hasn't been enough time since the two-trillion-dollar cares act passed to determine whether new legislation is needed or necessary aside from that majority leader. Steny Hoyer said Tuesday. It appears that sweeping democratic led. Bill WILL BE READY TO CALL lawmakers back to Washington for the vote. Hoyer said about the virus outbreak. An economic shutdown. He said quote. This is an unexpected time in our history and because of that. Congress needs to act in unprecedented ways in quote keep in mind than an official vote is expected on Friday so we can only imagine how exactly everything is going to go down. So what are my opinions about everything that's going on? And some ways I do have to agree with the Democratic Democrats but also in other ways I do have to agree with the Republicans. They're sure enough was a lot of things that were left out of the last bill. Many people could not pay their home their rent or their mortgage on time. Okay and sometimes that amount that they received was not enough for them to survive because of the great crisis so they could maybe afford to pay their rent but they didn't have enough to pay for their car insurance or their car note or maybe even to buy groceries however on the same end same spectrum. I do have to do with the Republicans as well. The last thing you want to do is jump into something too soon. I understand that people are starting to get weary and they're starting not to think straight but if you jump into something too soon you could end up hurting okay. So people are already in some ways starting to wonder if this is going to be something that they will have to pay back in their taxes and so I personally feel that if we act on it too soon we may end up having to pay this to pay for something through our taxes. I don't know about you guys but in my household are the way I was taught was that everything comes with a price. Okay so before asking for something. Sometimes it's good if they help you out but I felt like for asking for too much. We may end up having to pay for this thing whether it's through taxes or any other source so I really think in this case like I said I do have to agree with the Republicans and hasn't been enough time since this has passed. We haven't had time to really sit down and look at how this is affecting us as a society and I do think that we need to stop and pump the brakes however on the same spectrum like I said I do have to agree with the Democrats. This isn't enough for a lot of people. So how do we determine if we should or should not go with the two trillion or the three trillion? How do you determine if you should or should not do that so again this is just going to be something that might take a while Especially for them to agree with something I don't really want to go too far into politics because I know everyone's political views are different. But I just wanted to you know. Open the door to show you guys that I see both sides. I see what the Democrats are coming from and I see what the Republicans are coming from. And also aside from that I also wanted to go in kind of comment on what St Hoyer stated. Which is that. This is an unprecedented time in our history. President Woodrow Wilson Face. The influence of pandemic of nineteen eighteen to nineteen nineteen. That killed about twenty million to fifty million people around the world while the United States was also in World War One now. The war was the reason. Wilson's administration downplayed the crisis from the moment the outbreak. Until it eventually killed about six hundred and seventy five thousand Americans. Eventually a quarter of all Americans became infected including several. Who worked at the White House? Many historians believed Wilson himself fell. Ill then you had to white Eisenhower. Who had to deal with the Asian flu? The H two into virus was first reported in Singapore in February of Nineteen fifty seven and reached the United States that summer president. Dwight D EISENHOWER. Was aware of the impending pandemic but he intentionally refused to start a nationwide government government-supported vaccination program in August of nineteen fifty seven. Eisenhower ask Congress for five hundred thousand dollars in funding and authorized to shift an additional two million. If needed to fight the outbreak. He set a goal of six million doses of vaccines enough to vaccinate a third of the population which was around one hundred and seventy one million at the time by early November about forty million doses had been given in the pandemic began losing stream the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated the number of deaths from h two into at one point one million worldwide and one hundred sixteen thousand in the United States. Then you had Gerald Ford who had to deal with the swine flu now. Gerald Ford was accused of overreacting and not under reacting so not long after a soldier died of a new form of the flu in February of one thousand nine hundred seventy six the United States Secretary of Health Education and Welfare announced that the virus could turn into an epidemic by fall to avoid an epidemic the CDC said at least eighty percent of the United States population would need to be vaccinated leading Ford to sign an emergency legislation for the National Swine Flu Immunization Program in mid April within a few months close to fifty million Americans were vaccinated which is good but it's also bad because four took action to quickly. The vaccine caused more problems at unfortunately in the end. Hundreds of people came down with the going in bear syndrome which is a rare neurological disorder after getting the flu shot. Then you had Barack Obama amd Barack Obama had to do with the H. One in one Zeka and Ebola crisis a few months and to President Barack Obama's first term in two thousand and nine reports started coming in about h. One in one or basically called the swine influenza which was dictated I in the United States and spread quickly across the world. Their first case was reported April. Fifteenth two thousand nine. The Obama Administration assembled a team and declared H. One and one a public health emergency on April twenty six six weeks before it was declared a pandemic and before any deaths have been recorded in the United States. Six months after the initial declaration with more than a thousand American lives lost. Obama declared the swine flu a national emergency the CDC estimated that from April two thousand nine to April two thousand and ten there were sixty point eight million cases of swine flu and twelve thousand four hundred and sixty nine deaths from it in the United States on August tenth two thousand and ten the World Health Organization declared an end to the pandemic then for years later. Obama faced another crisis. Which was the two thousand fourteen to two thousand sixteen? Ebola outbreak that killed more than eleven thousand people in West Africa for years. Later Obama faced another crisis. Which was the two thousand fourteen to two thousand sixteen Ebola crisis that killed more than eleven thousand people in West Africa. Obama activated the CDC Emergency Operations Center in July of two thousand fourteen to help coordinate technical assistance including deploying personnel to west Africa to assist with response efforts. Obama fought a different virus on the Home Front. Which was these Zeka? Which was a virus transmitted by mosquitoes? The two thousand fifteen outbreak was first recorded in Brazil and by two thousand and sixteen about forty thousand cases were reported in the United States. The Obama Administration requested one point nine billion dollars in emergency federal funding to fight the virus on February. Two Thousand Sixteen one point one billion dollars which was approved by Congress that September in two thousand fifteen Obama's national security adviser Susan Rice created the Global Health Security Biodefense unit which is basically a team responsible for pandemic preparedness under the National Security Council which is a form of a White House personnel that advises the President on National Security and foreign policy matters but in May of two thousand eighteen during the presidency of Donald Trump the global health security and biodefense unit was disbanded. Its leader left the administration and some of its members or merged with other units within the NS. See again. Like I said I I do see both sides and I just wanted to tell you guys about the different presidents and how and how they had to deal with a pandemic now given we have never had to deal with a pandemic or this outbreak such as this and you know basically how each administration has handled an outbreak of this sort so With that being said that is the end of this segment in the next segment. We're GONNA talk about Vanessa Bryant. And how she is facing a huge battle with the hair.

Pelosi's new three trillion dollar covert nineteen. Relief Plan that the other plan that the Republicans brought out missed a lot of points that this three trillion dollar plan could help Americans survive especially during this pandemic and how exactly they are planning to bring that request to Congress in this segment. I wanted to talk about islands. Express claiming that Koby Bryant and Jonah Bryant. Were aware that the helicopter could get into an accident and how exactly they are defending themselves against Vanessa. Bryant's lawsuit against them Vanessa. Bryant put in a lawsuit against not only the helicopter company but she also put in a lawsuit against the La Sheriff's office. Okay so island. Express came out. Tuesday may twelve and claimed that Kobe and Jonah Bryant where aware that? The helicopter is could result in an accident as reported in several documents. And that happened to be put in after Vanessa filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company. So the claim filed by Vanessa. Bryant called a response to reports of sheriff deputies sharing photos of the crash grossly insufficient and at. Brian was distressed to learn that the department did not initiate a formal investigation until reports surfaced about the misconduct after the incident in reality however no fewer than eight. Sheriff deputies were at the scene snapping cell phone photos of the dead children parents and coaches as the department would later admit there was no investigation purpose for deputies to take pictures at the crash site rather the deputies took photos for their own personal purposes. First off I can understand why she filed a claim against them. What kind of person takes a cell phone photo of people's dead children parents and coaches? What kind of person would take a photo of someone who has just passed away and leak it like? Why would you have that on your phone? As a person who is who is said to to protect someone. Your job is to protect someone. Okay so you know that these children have parents you know that these parents have children. You know that these children in parents and coaches have families okay and they're precious to someone. So why in your right mind. Would you think I should take a photo of this person? No matter if it's Kobe Bryant Jonah Bryant. Other said family friends the helicopter driver. Why would you take a picture with your cell phone? Unless you have the intent to sell that to a newspaper or a magazine or someone else so that you can get money. Not all money is good money. There is no sincerety in your heart or in your soul for you to do something. This the evil. You might not say it's evil you might not say it's Square in this case. I think that Vanessa Bryant had the right to file a claim I. That was my little sidetrack I was not supposed to get sidetracked like that but let me continue on with the story. Shortly after a relative of the pilot. Arizo beyond responded to the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Vanessa. O'brien in February okay. So you remember back in February after Kobe. Bryant death was announced. Vanessa Bryant a filed a claim after the crash okay and the company that owned the aircraft has issued their own response in the suit okay. They said that Kobe Bryant and John Bryant had knowledge of all of the circumstances particular dangers and an appreciation of the risks involved and the magnitude of flying in the helicopter on January twenty. Sixth Attorneys for the company claimed that the late father and daughter thus voluntarily assumed the risk of the accident injury in damages. Bryant filed her wrongful death lawsuit against the Island Express helicopters and claimed the pilot. Ara though beyond who was piloting the flight EPA time of the calabasas California crash impasse away. Quote failed to properly monitor and excess. The weather prior to takeoff. He also failed to abort the flight when he knew of the cloudy conditions and failed to properly and safely. Operate the helicopter resulting in crash. Vanessa Brian Complaint also argued that island expressed helicopters quote knew or should have known that though beyond had previously cited by the FAA for violating the visual flight rules minimums by flying into an area of reduced visibility from weather conditions. So all Bryant Vanessa. Bryant is seeking for is a wrongful death. She's also seeking for general economical and punitive damages. Now a representative for the Island Express helicopters stated quote. This was a tragic accident. Island Express helicopters also argued that the crash was caused by events beyond the control of an related to any actions or conduct. They stay a quote. Any injuries are damages to plaintiffs and or their descendants. If you don't know a plaintiff and or their descendant is a person who brings a case against one another in a court of law so in this case it would be Vanessa. Bryant's Family Aka Koby and Deanna Bryant. So they're basically saying any injuries or damages and or their descendants were directly cost in full or in part by the negligence or faults of the plaintiff and or their distance including their knowing and voluntary encounter with the risks involved and that this negligence was a substantial factor in causing their purported damages for which this answering defendant bears no responsibility in quote. I'm not making this up. So what they're basically saying is the injuries or damages in this case. The death of Kobe and Jonah Bryant was directly caused in full. Okay so they're they`re. Death is basically their fault according to the based trial lawyer Tom Leykis. The response is a standard part of trial preparation in a wrongful death. Case like this in the response was filed in an abundance of caution by the lawyers representing Berge. They'll be on. And then also stated quote in order to preserve all of your defenses for trial you have to stake them as affirmative defenses at the time you file an answer during a press conference after the crash. Jennifer Home Indie with the national transportation. Safety Board said the helicopter was not equipped with a Taryn awareness and warning system. Something she believes could have helped pilot beyond which is a system aimed at preventing unintentional impacts with the ground. The National Transportation Safety Board reported on the crash. They found that they found no evidence of engine. Failure or mechanical issues with that being said an investigation is still ongoing. I feel like the helicopter. Company needs to take responsibility for their actions in this whole process. I feel like maybe they may people sign a contract and given the did sign a contract but keep in mind that yes. Accidents do happen but in many ways a lot of things that were supposed to take place did not take place and because of that no matter if a contract was signed or not. You need to take responsibility okay. We all want to see our family members in a high pedals on a high pedestal. And in a good light and maybe your brother did not mean for this to happen. I'm talking to a burdensome boy on maybe his brother Ara Zim boy did not mean for this to happen okay. Accidents do happen. Some accidents are fatal at this case in this case however this was an accident that was fatal. Okay and no one means for this thing to happen. But in this case Vanessa Bryant had has all the right to sign a lawsuit against this he has. She has receipts the issues that this helicopter company had. Okay unfortunately it cost her her husband as well as her daughter and I like. The helicopter company needs to take ownership and they need to take this lawsuit okay. I don't personally feel like it. Was the passengers salt. Keep in mind that the boy on family did not make it clear how the passengers could have been negligent in this case And with that being said that is the end of this segment in the next segment.

Bryant's pilot his family. Who is blaming the passengers for the crash and basically how they came to that realization. They're essentially being sued for wrongful death and this is actually the response. Now keep in mind that they haven't really came out to response as to why and how the passengers were negligent in the situation but the investigation is still ongoing right now. I wanted to switch gears and talk about John Williamson and how. His former marketing agent is emitting in some kind of way that his parents received money gifts from Duke Nike and Adidas so Jennifer. She's a farmer. Marketing agent of the NBA and she was Managing Rookie Zion Williamson and she has filed legal documents. Alleging Zion and his family received favours from several sources including Duke University. Nike and Adidas in Ford's filing she is alleging Zion's mother Cher Rhonda Sin and his Stepfather Lee Anderson received economic gifts from individuals on behalf of Nike for Zion's commitment to play for Duke University. It also states that Samson an Lee received contributions from a person acting on behalf of Adidas to influence Williamson to attend a college that endorsed Adidas shoes elsewhere. It also Elsewhere it also makes claims that between January first of two thousand fourteen in April fourteenth. Two Thousand Nineteen move were before Zion enrolled at Duke University. A person acting on his behalf accepted benefits from an NCAA certified agent which violates the NCAA legislation however in June Two Thousand Nineteen Zion began legal proceedings to have his five year contract with genus with Geno Ford in her company. Prime sports terminated. Zayante attorneys are arguing that the contract violated North Carolina's University Athletic Agents Act because Prime Sports is not a certified entity by the NBA Players Association nor a registered Athletic Agent in North Carolina or Florida according to Espn Ford is seeking a hundred million dollars in damages from breach of contract fraud misappropriation and she demands that Zayante admit that he knew his mother and stepfather received illegal benefits for Williamson to attend Duke University. And where Adidas Shoes? Wow Wow okay so I don't know if what she's saying is true because to me. This sounds like a woman who is very much hurt that this young man does not want to be represented by her anymore. Maybe this young man you know did not agree with her in a lot of things or maybe her in the said mother or stepfather did not get along in a number of ways so this is her taking her anger out on them. I think in her case she is so upset and she's so angry because maybe she has worked so hard with this young man and trying to get him to a certain point when he was working at Duke University so that now win he is now in the NBA and he has dropped her as an agent. For whatever reason I think she is very upset so she is trying to hurt him in the next best way possible which is which is his pocket book and then also. There's a lot of claims here. I don't really see any receipts. And when I mean by receipts is any facts stating or showing VAT. Zion's mother Charango Samson or his stepfather Lee Anderson actually receiving these economic gifts from these individuals. Where are these individuals who so-called gave her gave them these gifts if she is alleging that this happened there has to be some kind of proof? Otherwise is just. He said she said is just rumors. There's no facts. There's no receipts. There's nothing that is showing someone this kind of proof and maybe he did want to go to university. Maybe he didn't maybe was influenced in some kind of way but all do know is that he went to Duke University for a year. I believe a year or possibly a year and a half before he was picked up from the NBA and He was picked up by the NBA. But could this be some kind of coincidence? Maybe he's just so talented that you know. He got into Duke University and he happened to catch some deals. Maybe that is it but again there has to be some kind of proof. There has to be some kind of receipt. Before you can actually say well Zion Williamson. Did this this and this okay. Well where's the proof? Where's the receipts? This is just. He said she said so. Instead of you stating your claim. Now you're sounding Jealous Niagara Sounding angry. As you know this case progresses. Maybe she will have some kind of receipt. Some kind of proof you know stating that. He did what he did now as far as breach of contract maybe he did. Not You know In his contract when he was supposed to win the contract was said to in. Because I believe you have to go in. You have to sign a contract again. So maybe he cut the contract early for for whatever. Reason may be the two didn't get along. Maybe she wasn't doing her job. Maybe you know he just wanted to switch. Maybe that was it. So maybe that's where the breach of contract comes from for. Those who guys who do not know a breach of contract is a contract of employment and that is a legally binding agreement between you and the employer in this case it was Zion Williamson and Jen afford a breach of that contract. Happens when either you Zairian Williamson or your employer. Jen Afford breaks one of the terms. Okay so let's say that Jennifer Ward didn't do her part of the job which was sponsoring him in some kind of way so maybe just decided to go again to someone else to me personally. I think I'm going to sit back and wait for this case to be built up a little bit more because again right now. All we're seeing and hearing is her claims everything in the she stating we haven't really heard anything from Zion Williamson. Either because he just laying her say whatever she wants to say before he really comes in and and shows her proof and shows her receipts and shows her that may be everything that she is stating is not true or maybe. It's just for her to have her reputation tarnished. Because maybe these things aren't true or maybe he will soon come out and say something away. This is just going to be so interesting. As this case progresses coming up next I wanted to talk about a Staten Island nurse who is facing charges after stealing a credit card of a cove nineteen patient all of that coming up right after this break what to find out what movies to go see and check out the GS movie podcast.

Hey everybody welcome back to before that break. We were talking about Williamson's former marketing agent filing a lawsuit against him for breach of contract as well as other lawsuits because she feels she is stating that Zion. Williamson's parents added economic gifts as well as an agreement for him to go to Duke University. And where Adidas in my personal opinion before I move onto this next segment I personally feel like maybe someone was doing their job a little bit better than she was doing. I feel like she's probably a little hurt by that. Which is why Zairan decided to leave the contract. And that is the reason as to why she's filing this lawsuit. I wanted to talk about a Staten Island. University nurse has been accused of stealing the credit card of a former in nineteen patient while he was hospitalized. Danielle Conti stole the credit card from seventy year. Old Anthony Carta Pano while he was being treated at the hospital for covert nineteen his daughter. Tara Carta Pano claims several items. Were missing from her father's things when she went to go pick him up. Including his cell phone to cell phone chargers his glasses money and a buzzer continental. Use The credit cards on April ninth and she bought sixty dollars worth of gas and grocery according to company knows daughter. She noticed the charges on her father's a mix bill and found the charges odd since he always paid for gas in cash. She then realized the charges occurred while he was fighting for his life in the hospital can't Amino wrote on facebook quote due to the pandemic. No visitors are allowed. Therefore that means a hospital employee stole my father's credit card use it and then returned it to his wallet in quote. Contadini is facing charges of Grand Larceny Petite Larceny and possession of stolen property. Continuity was issued a desk appearance ticket to appear instead an island court at a later date now as far as Anthony. Canape no he has been admitted on April fourth. Unfortunately he passed away on April twelfth due to complications from the virus the hospital released the following statement to local news outlets regarding knee. They stated quote. Daniel Katuni has been temporarily suspended and faces termination in response to the felony charges. We are working closely with the law enforcement. Authorities and the hospital is conducting. Its own investigation misconduct. Any has been an employee since two thousand seven in quote. I just this is terrible. I noticed a trend in this and my last segment couple of podcasts ago. I was talking about a caretaker who stole engagement ring from someone who was battling covert nineteen. And how this elderly lady ended up passing away now. We have a nurse who ended up taking a credit card. Okay these people are targeting. These elderly patients you know. Possibly because they know that many of them are unfortunately going to pass away this virus so they're targeting them. They're taking these prized possessions. And many of them think that they can fly under the radar. Take things that are precious. You know such as An engagement ring or Something that is going to cost them money and doing little small things thinking no one is going to take notice. So I'm I'm happy that this lady was caught. Now if you guys do not know what Grand Larceny is. It's a theft of a personal property having a value above a legally specified amount. In this case she had no amount. She had really no reason to take this man's property to take this man's credit card. This is this man's personal property. Then she went on to use money specified money which was not for her which was why she was charged with Grand Larceny. She was also charged with petite larceny. It's a it's a form of larceny in the stealing of another person's personal property it which the value of the property taken is generally less than fifty dollars which is different because she technically spent sixty dollars but I guess they're not really counting the ten bucks that she spent so I guess another person would ask what is the likeliness of jail time. So how much how much jail time she could she possibly get Keep in mind that she does have to appear in court and keep in mind that she's still on temporary suspension for her job at the hospital but petty theft in this case also petite larceny or shoplifting. In another case is the related crime of shoplifting or misdemeanors. This means that the convicted defendant could face the possibility of jail time not prison time of up to about a year or less and a fine of one or two thousand dollars but again that was just a quick Google search It also depends on the judge. It depends on what the judge has to say. And what the judge deems official for taking the credit card And then you also have to see. Okay what is the hospital going to do? Is She gonNA face any kind of repercussions for her act at her job? Will she? Just lose her job or will she be able to get a job quickly at another hospital. Possible my heart goes out to the daughter. This is again such a staffing for a family member to have to deal with burying your said loved ones and then having to deal with a lawful case because someone has decided to steal something from them or think that they can get away with something like this or or pretending to care about that person's well being just to turn around and steal embiid deceiving to that person so As the time goes on we will see if standing either Stanton Island hospital will give this nurse her job back or you know if she will face type of of jail. Time or you know Anything in sort of if she will be reprimanded in some kind of way But again my heart goes out to the daughter and goes out to his family as well as you know the time goes on so that being said that is the end of this segment always on the go but the will be without your Hollywood's fits golden state media concepts. That are ten podcast. Take care of that Jordan and Keith is entertainment tonight meets access Hollywood. I'm Jordan die laughing. That's key all inclusive log pod kosher on Monday. La County sheriff. Alex Villanueva revealed about two dozen inmates. At the pitches detention center in cast ick attempted in somewhat succeeded to infect themselves with corona virus to get out of jail early. Vin Away explained that this all occurred mid April. Apparently they're department saw a large increase in confirmed cases out of nowhere and decided to figure out what was going on following an investigation. They found a bunch of is living in one block deliberately trying to infect each other with covert nineteen from behind bars according to TMZ Villanueva. Play the surveillance footage for a few people from the police department which appeared to show several inmates hanging out and common area from there. They appear to pass around. What the new wave of says is a hub of hot water as well as one facemask. They put to get as well as one facemask. They each put on all in hopes of getting infected and appearing sick in front of a judge to get an early release and placed on house arrest instead as the new sites notes their plan somewhat worked as Villanueva says twenty one of those guys out of fifty in the block caught the corona virus. However it's unclear if any of those inmates were released after the little stunt they pulled which is so weird. So couple podcasts ago. I was talking about how Ohio and New York where releasing inmates who were actually appearing sick if they were not young and had the corona virus than they were a lot older who happened to have health conditions and health concerns. They were released but now it's just seeming as if they are releasing a lot of people also about two to three weeks ago there was a young man who was released from prison and He happened to have the corona virus. Some weeks pass and then he committed another crime and that landed him back in the same jail that he was trying to escape from so a lot of these inmates unfortunately no what. They're what they're doing and the sad part about it is that there are a lot of people who happened to have the corona virus. And who happened to really need to be released because this is their life at stake and now they're concerned might be overlooked because people are just wanting to look for a way out You know not saying that these other people aren't is just thank you know. Now it's just going to be harder to determine if they deliberately got corona virus or if they unfortunately got corona virus and now there's no way for them to be helped also in the same. These guys that are passing around the cup. Were passing around the facemask trying to get the corona virus. I I hope they understand that. You can't pass away from the corona virus. So why you're trying your best to get the krona virus and you're trying your best to be released. What if you don't even if you get sick and you don't even get to make it outside? You did all of this work to catch the corona virus. Just pass away and you ended up having away before you can even make it outside. So you're doing all of this basically in vain you know I stand that. They're desperate to get out of jail understand that they're desperate to go back to normal lives. I mean no one wants to go to jail. No must've jail. No one wants to go to prison. No one wants to have their freedom taken away from them which is possibly why they're like you know what. I'd rather go on house arrest because technically being quarantine is being on house arrest technically. Except you know you can leave and you don't have a monitor on your foot or ankle you'll have an ankle and ankle monitor. You can have that freedom you know but I think for them. It's just the satisfaction of not being behind bars so again desperate times call for desperate measures but not when your life is at stake because you may or may not possibly get to see the outside world so with that being said that it's the end of this segment in the next segment.

That's the only place you can get it and right now you get thirty percent off all products. Just Use Code R. M. R. Thirty Aria Mar. Thirty the head. La County Sheriff Alex Villanova on. What a terrific guy he is and I was talking about the fact that I'm doing what the CDC recommends she gave us the straight scoop about what it's GonNa take to get something that knocks this out of. Watch the middle emotional commitment to this in Americans have done a damn good job. And that's why this thing has turned around as Dr Phil. And it's Tuesday. Fill in the blanks. So this is our thirty day of lockdown. And I'm just curious how everyone is doing. This is really getting tough for some people. I'm getting so much mail. And so many people that I'm hearing them say that their mood their emotion their belief that they can stick with. This has really changed and evolved across time. I'm here for people that are saying. Listen I thought I could do this two weeks ago even a week ago and now. I'm really starting to wonder if I'm going to be okay. I talked to a good friend of mine today. Whose daughter is in New York and I know her and she's in her twenties tough. I mean really tough. And he said last week she was just crying. She's been in her apartment. Hasn't been outside taking Walker in the sun and she was saying you know Dad. I just don't know I don't know if I can take this. The stress is getting to me Lonesome nothing interests me. I'm just feeling like what's the point and it just really think. How could that be with just being thirty days into this which was last week and now it's thirty nine days and he actually says she kind of maybe hit bottom and he's doing a little better now but I'm wondering how you're doing? I'm wondering of this is really really starting to take its toll on you you know. We're seeing awful lot of people out there. Saying enough is enough and too much is too much in. This is too much. So we're seeing protesters out there saying we're not taking any more CETERA etc. I just really plead with everybody to recognize that. There's a right way and a wrong way to turn this back on. And is it having a adverse effect on our world? Of course it is? I was just hearing from some of my financial people that oil for the first time in history is minus thirty seven dollars and sixty three cents a barrel for May futures for US crew. You're probably thinking how in the world again oil be minus thirty seven dollars a barrel. Well what they're saying is for May contracts people are saying. I'M NOT GONNA pay anything for May oil oil that I would have to take delivery on in. May because I have so much oil in my tanks. I would have nowhere to put it if you delivered it to me and may I would have nowhere to put it so people were dumping nobody buying and so it started tumbling. It went down three hundred and five percent at dumped fifty five dollars ninety cents a barrel. So it's now minus thirty seven dollars in sixty three cents a barrel first time in history that it's gone down over forty dollars a barrel earlier finished at thirty seven. Sixty three on the negative side. That's how bad it's gotten a week ago. I said a quarter of Michigan's workers were unemployed. I read over the weekend. That half of California's workforce is unemployed and so therefore filing for unemployment which is why I'm saying there are adverse effects to staying in quarantine there are adverse effects coming out of quarantine and both have to be weighed. That's why I say there's a tipping point and if we're going to come out of quarantine we need to follow the science and do it in the right way or we can wind up right back where we are in all of the sacrifices that have been made so far are going to be for. Not Now you know. I've spent twenty three years in the public and I've been misquoted and misinterpreted and all a lot but I just kind of take it in stride and decide you know that's just part of it and whine about it as much as I sometimes want to instead of complaining about being misquoted misinterpreted Miss Spun. Talk about just what my position is and I've looked back and we've done twenty five shows on corona virus. And so I've looked and thought you know maybe it's time to take a look at some of the wisdom that I think and I'm being a modest here but some of the wisdom. I think we have delivered through these twenty-five shows go all the way back to march nineteenth. We did a show on corona virus parenting under quarantine and we had Donald Pedro on. She's a parenting expert and it was a really important show about how to deal with parenting when you have to be a mother a father and then all of a sudden without four years of training as a teacher. Start to become a home. Schooler and I remember starting that show by saying I need to be here alone today as I take the guidelines of the CDC Dr Faucher the preeminent expert very seriously and I'm respecting every one of them. That's been given and I encourage you to do exactly the same thing I said. I'm not an immunologist. I'm not an infectious disease. But I do have access to these people that probably most of you don't have access to and I've been very careful to take all the politics out of this and gather what they've told me so I can pass it on and that's what I've been doing across the last twenty five shows so I say I'm not an immunologist. I'm not an infectious disease expert. I'm not a molecular microbiologist. So you know who the hell am I I mean why am I talking about this at all well? I don't talk about this very much. I read a article in Parade magazine. One time a few years back husband and wife for arguing is a real doctor or does he just play one on TV and they had this big debate going and they resolve the debate by. I just play one on. Tv seriously. That's how they resolved it but the truth is that's not true. The truth is I do have a PhD psychology from North Texas State University. The main green. You Remember Joe. Green the main green it was an APA approved program and I had to areas of specialization in my training in my PhD program was clinical psychology where we focus on like neuroses and psychoses Personality Disorders. That kind of thing but also behavioral medicine just like medical psychology is support at which your psychology and your physiology come together and influence each other. Which is why. I'm talking to you so much about how stress affects your mood. How mood affects your body. Because of studied that that's so important that we recognize anxiety. Depression can affect the way our body functions and I had a master's degree in research psychology figuring out what research means how to interpret those studies. Then did an internship at the Medical Center in Waco and in a post doctoral fellowship in forensic psychology at the Wilmington Institute then I was in private practice for awhile then founded a trial science company as you all know so. I'm not a molecular biologist. I'm not an infectious disease expert. But I didn't just fall off the turnip truck either. I am trained in clinical psychology medical psychology and how the two interact to influence how our bodies behave when we're under stress in pressure and I said in it I show. I'm concerned about the mental health aspect of what's going on here because I know they do interact in our second show. I went straight to the heart of it. Corona virus fears. Mike is crippling and I said like many of you at home. I've made a decision to self quarantine and practice social distancing but if I have any influence over you then let me tell you. This is not an overreaction. This is something we need to do to stem the tide and I pointed out again. I'm not an immunologist. I'm not an infectious disease expert. So I just want to share with you. What these experts have taken time to tell me. We talked to Corona Virus Naysayers. Who said I don't care what anybody says? I'M GONNA go out and party anyway. We talked about corona virus. How TO STAY SAFE? And ahead. La County Sheriff Alex Villanueva on. What a terrific guy he is and I was talking to him about the fact that I'm doing what the CDC recommends. I'm keeping my distance for the health of our country. So that means I'm at home. I'm in self quarantined. I was making that point because this looks like a guy. You don't WanNa mess with V. I don't think you could get both arms around. He'd be like hugging a fifty five. Gallon drum this guy is really stout very serious law enforcement guy but super nice guy really and in fact he was very nice. He's talking about. We're not being heavy handed with people here. We're just encouraging them to do the right thing. He said. We're not arresting people and He was very KYD said Dr Phil. Thank you for the message. You're doing. It's like a public service announcement. I WanNa stay on his good side and we blew up some of the myths and he talked about some of the cons that were going on then. We did a show about corona virus couples in crisis about how to keep from getting on each other's last nerve so this thing doesn't blow up and as I look at these summaries I I keep saying I'm not an infectious disease specialist. I'm not an immunologist. I guess I keep saying that because I don't want anybody to think that I think I know what's going on on the medical side. I don't I'm just reporting back what I'm learning. Because we've had some of the great experts in the country on and Robin and I are just doing what the CDC says and we're still doing what the CDC said we had. Dr Ayman Really Talks about how your brain response to stress? He's head of the clinic and he was great. We talked to people on the front lines. We talked a whistle blowers we talk to people that were on the front lines of what they were really. Having to deal with again we blew up some of the miss. We've covered a lot here. We talked Dr. Norman freed who say disaster mental health specialist. And he really talked to us about some of the things you need to realize about your brain and how that works so and I again. I said it in that show and I say it again right. Listen to the scientists. Pick your sources very carefully the CDC the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases? Dr Fatty some of these people that take the politics out of it and just tell you straight up and listen. I know I've had a lot of messages about Dr Fouled. She says one thing one week in something else the next week and you know why that is. It's because it's a moving target things change and he tells you when they change but I certainly trust what he says. And it'd be keeps telling you the same thing when things are changing then. You shouldn't trust him but I do trust him. We talked to Dr Danielle Allama. She's pulmonary and critical care specialist and she really gave us some insights into how this works in the lungs. And why it's important for you to stay away from people that have this disorder. We talked to Dr Dena Grayson and while she is so impressive and has worked so much in coming up with antiviral agents and gave us the straight scoop about what it's GonNa take to get something that knocks this out. I was so impressed with her. That was great. We talked about sobriety in this time of crisis I'm so worried about addicts and alcoholics. Who depend on their meetings in their twelve step system and they can't do it when they're in isolation they don't have that human contact and you know that's so hard and I hope they use the technology and we talked to people that have been branded and scorned. You know sometimes when people get this people really judge them they really turn on them and start judging them and ostracizing an accusing them of doing something wrong. If you get this virus doesn't mean you've done something wrong. This is a highly contagious virus. Oh you shouldn't be judged for it just because you got infected. It is a highly infectious sort of thing. We talked about miracle cures and what really might treat covert nineteen and we had Dr Susannah Nagy on. She's Associate Dean with regard to infectious diseases. And she such an impressive woman. She's got an MD from John Hopkins School of Medicine and she did internal medicine training at Duke University and she's director of Infectious Disease Research at Duke Medical Director of Clinical Research at Duke. Can we got some really straight scoop out of her. It was just great in all of that's available online. If you WANNA take a look at it and it's very clear that progress is being made here. I mean progress is clearly clearly being made and I think one of the most impressive people that we've talked to is coming up this week and it hasn't aired yet but it's coming up this week and you'll be hearing from an expert by the name of Glanville and he is working on. Antibodies and is going to tell you some things that are going to lift your spirit like you will not believe. I'm not gonNA give it all away but you're going to hear him say some things that are going to make you smile. Go to make you think you know what that light at. The end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train. You're going to hear some things from him. That are going to be very very exciting. And this guy is serious. He's the dock that was featured in the net flicks special pandemic had to do with the SARS outbreak in two thousand and three and he is very active right now. And it's it's Dr Jacob Glanville. And he's going to say some things that are. GonNa make you very hopeful about what's coming up and it's something that could impact what goes on this summer and what can happen before a second wave can come in here and just really ravage us like it did win. The pandemic of nineteen eighteen happened and so many hundreds of thousands of lives were taken most of them taken in the second wave. So you're going to hear some. Thanks from him that I think you're going to be very heartened by so. I really hope you'll watch that. Show coming up this week now. The big thing I want to talk about is the longer this goes on. The worst distress is and if I think I've said to you before if somebody told me that I could only control one thing and I wanted to make someone insane. What would I wanNA control? It would be sleep. It would be their sleep and stress involves sleep patterns in a major way. There are three stages involved in stress. There's the alarm phase. That's where we're more energized. That's at fighter flight reaction where we get adrenaline and Cortisol. And then there's a resistance phase. That's where stress gets chronic. We aren't as energized wired. But were still more alert me we're just Kinda bug-eyed looking around and then there's the exhaustion phase. It's the depletion of our bodily systems. It's a natural consequence of ongoing elevated cortisol in Cortisol stops us from getting deep sleep and it compromises. The body's ability to create the happiness hormone serotonin. So it is important that you go look these things up. It's just that there are two chemicals in the body that work against each other when you're under stress one of them keeps you from getting sleep and sleep keeps you from creating ah chemical in your brain that you need to feel happy to feel pleasure so it's really important that if you're not getting good sleep let me encourage you do something to change that and I've got some tips for that.

These are things you can do without taking a sleeping pill without taking some chemicals and number one is you need to create that soft place to fall. You need to create that sanctuary that place that there are just nothing to keep you awake and one of the things. You've got to get rid of what we call Blue Light. Blue light emits from computers from. Iphones can even come from your alarm clock. Blue Light is on the spectrum and it does something to the brain that keeps it alert. Now I got something. That's a shield that I put on my ipad where I can still see the screen clearly but it blocks blue light so if I get in bed and I'm watching something well I pat or whatever it takes out the blue light so it doesn't trigger my brain in that way and it was like five bucks or ten bucks or something and I got it to fit. The screen ordered it. I don't know if I got it from apple or Amazon or somewhere but it's just a simple clear it looks clear but it's not it blocks out certain right and I put it on my screen so I didn't have blue light in there and it's good to take an evening shower or bath like forty five minutes to an hour before you go to bed. Don't work out before you go to bed. A LOTTA PEOPLE WANNA DO SIT-UPS PUSHUPS and go get in a gym. Get on the treadmill or you'll run around the block or something before you go to. Bed IS NOT GOOD. It wakes your body up too much. It's hard to then shutdown. You WANNA phase yourself into sleep. Start winding down. You've seen that with your kids. You don't want your kids running wild in playing tag right up until the seconds are supposed to go to bed. Then they're all wired you want him to. You know play for a while. Then read a book then take a bath then lay in bed here restore ear. Phasing them down. Do the same thing with yourself. Bunin drink something drink. Something like Camomile tea. Take a magnesium supplement if it's something that your doctor's okay with it helps them muscles to relax and I find it really helpful to practice gratitude. I think it's great to keep pad beside your bed because if you wake up at night in your mind's racing about things I am I gotta gotTa do this mark. I do that tomorrow. Find if you write things down on the pad then you don't feel like you need to keep thinking about them during the night you wrote them down so you know they'll be there tomorrow. You won't forget so you're mine doesn't race trying to keep them there and then you can really practice the deep breathing. That I've talked about three seconds in six seconds out three seconds. Inhale six seconds. Exhale that gives you a good oxygen carbon dioxide ratio. And it will really help. Your brain starts to Gear Dale. So that can help you get sleep and if you can wake up rested your ability to tolerate. The stress tolerate the demands to tolerate the confinement. That you're going through will be a whole lot better off because I don't care what anybody is telling you. I don't care what you want or how bad you want it. There's no way they're just going to throw the gates open and we're going to go racing back out there and be right back to our lives like we were In a matter of weeks It's up to your governor. It's up to your mayor but they're going to set a date and then they're going to start phasing in. I don't know if you've read. What the federal government has come up with. But they've come up with the three-phase program and I took about three and a half hours to really figure out what all of that meant and so I want to translate that in case you got his lost in it as I did. I took about three hours. And before you even get to the first phase then they go through what's called gating and that means there has to be a downward trend for fourteen days and we're talking about a downward trend of symptoms a downward trend of covert symptoms a downward trend of any kind of other disease symptoms any kind of flu or temperatures anything like that a downward trend in the percentage of positive test everything has to be trending down consistently for fourteen days before you can even get to phase one. And so if you're in a place that still having two days down one day up two days down three days up you're not even going to get to phase one and most of the governors and most of the mayors are following this and the hospital has to be in a situation where they can treat patients without crisis care and they have to be able to test all at risk frontline people for the virus and for antibodies. And we'RE WAY BEHIND ON TESTING. So they gotta be able to say. Okay. We can all of our frontline. People are at risk we have to be able to test them to see that they don't have the virus and if they have antibodies then the state has responsibilities where they have to have test sites where they can pop up a site if they start to get hot spot and they have to be able to track. If people start showing up positive for the disease they have to have what's called Sentinel sites if there are a symptomatic people that are showing up around older citizens or in low socioeconomic areas or areas where minority they have to have a good healthcare system after have plenty of PP E. I see you and equipment enough to handle the surge so if we go back out and there's a surge your healthcare system has to show that they're going to have enough to handle that and they have demonstrated that they have plans to protect those that are critical that they have to be able to handle those in high risk facilities and mass transit. So they've got to be able to show that they have enough masks that can maintain social distancing and that they can monitor and mitigate if hotspot shows up so basically what they're saying is you gotTa show that you've got your act together if there's a surge. I read a lot of points here that I pulled out of this. But what is basically saying? Is You gotTA show a downward trend for fourteen days? You gotTA show the ability to protect your front line people and you've got to be able to demonstrate that if there's a surge that if it goes south on you you can handle it without overwhelming system and if you can show that then you get to phase one and if you can't show all of that then you don't even get to phase one and if you get to phase one then here's the deal with regard individuals the vulnerable people. That is the older people. The people with underlying conditions continue to shelter in place. And if you are a family member of one of those folks then you have to isolate yourself when you come home if you go back out into the world and you're coming home to someone that is elderly or has an underlying condition you have to isolate yourself from them in some way in public still a limit of ten no groups tender larger and you have to avoid those groups and you can't be around him without taking precautions socially no groups ten or more without social distancing and you have to minimize non essential travel employers have to encourage telework and return their workforce in phases no common areas so like a cafeteria lunchroom. No can't do it. Have TO HAVE SOCIAL. Distancing minimized non-essential travel and have zone. So if you have people that work there that are at high risk you have a place for them to work away from the group that could possibly infect them and in by category schools in bars that are close stay closed in phase one nursing homes for example that are locked down no outside vistors. They stay locked down and then venues gyms and say movies or malls or whatever they can open. But they have to maintain social distancing They'll shut them back. Down elective surgeries. They're gonNA say Okay in phase one. You can start doing those again. Provided the hospital is not handling a surge face to instead of groups of ten. It GOES UP TO FIFTY. Travel is okay. Schools in bars can re opened in addition to everything in phase one. So you can see that. There's a step wise way to get back to this. So why am I taking time to tell you all this because I understand? Psychologically you have to have some hope. You have to have some sense that we can get this done that. There's some hope that we're going to be able to get this done that. We're just not so inept that we're discontinuing sit here and rock along with no hope of making progress. No hope of moving this forward and it's not just the government saying this there's a public health advocacy group called resolved to save lives. It's run by Dr Thomas Freedman. He's a former director of the CDC and he's published very specific criteria for what they believe after a lot of study has to happen before the country. The economy can reopen and when it must be closed. And they're saying some of the same things before you can reopen our country that you have to have declining cases for fourteen days in a row and you have to have tracing of ninety percent of the contacts for someone that is infected to have an end to health worker infections as well if you have health workers that are infected you. You can't open the country. You've got to have an end to that. And you've got to have recuperation places for mild cases and other goals are going to be tough to reach but those are kind of some of the big pieces and they say that you need to reopen this like a faucet that you're opening gradually I a trickle then a flow not just allow floodgates to just flood the city all at one time and that if we all work together that day's GonNa come sooner rather than later. They talk about something that I think is really interesting. They say that pretty soon. America's GONNA start getting divided into two classes kind of like Dr Seuss when he wrote about the star bellied. Snatches where you had these these characters. He came up with called stitches and there was those that had stars on their bellies. Those that didn't have stars on their bellies. And what they're saying is that's what's getting ready to happen here because presumably we're going to have this whole group of Americans when testing starts in earnest and we have a lot of people tested. We're going to find out that there are a lot of people that have had this. That don't even know it. And so now. They have antibodies and are assumed. Be Immune so you're going to have one group of people that have immunity and then you're going to have a group of people that are still vulnerable and this is going to be real scary situation because those with antibodies are going to be able to travel and work and everybody else is going to feel like. They're being discriminated against. They can't go. They have to stay home. They can't earn money. They can't go anywhere already. We've got people that have antibodies and so they assume that they're safe. They can't get it or they can't give it and so they're able to be on the front lines and do high risk jobs without any fear so pretty soon. They're going to come up with some kind of immunity passport. They're gonNA come out with maybe an APP on your phone or some kind of ID card or something where you can come to a checkpoint or come to a gate or door at a hospital or a office building and you can present it and say listen. I'm a low risk individual. I have antibodies. I'm Abune so I can't get it. So that means I can't be a carrier I can't get infected and I can infect others so they're gonNa have a huge leg up they may get your job. You may have had a job in accounting firm and they need somebody to do that job but you you haven't been infected so you're not eligible to get that job. They may give your job to somebody that has had the disease so you may be sitting there in your house and looking across the street at your neighbor. Who was your friend? And you're stuck in lockdown and you're seeing them come and go and that's going to breathe a lot of resentment again that's a psychological issue now. One of the people involved in this was talking about. He has a daughter that is a Harvard economist. Dr Michel Berry is saying that she has a daughter that keeps saying. There's a group that her age group needs to have Cova Nineteen Party so they can develop immunity and keep the economy going and that sounds crazy but think about it. A lot of young people have mild or moderate symptoms. And I've heard them talking about this where they're saying. Hey why don't I just go ahead and get this so I get immunity and then I just go on about my business and be done with this. I've talked to some people in these twenty five shows. I've done I would say that's not quite as easy as you think it is. I've had a couple of twenty year olds. It said they were so sick. They thought they were GONNA die. It was horrible but there are a lot of people that are actually thinking that way. Say Look I can just put all this behind me. I just get this damn virus and go through maybe a week of flu like symptoms or maybe not even that bad and then. I'm good to go. I can start flying traveling. Go back to work have money in my pocket. Be Moving around town with no traffic. I be out there. I'm just GONNA go catch this. Get it over with. I do not recommend that. But that's what a lot of people are talking about. That happened in Cuba. One time they talk about that in this article. I'm referencing where they had an outbreak of age down there. And they forced all those people that tested positive into a very controlled community and there were a lot of people trying to attract it because they wanted to be in that crowd. They all had everything they wanted in their they had their own theatre group. They had their own bungalows. They had this own little community and it was kind of seen as the in crowd near a lot of people trying to contract aid so they could get in there. It sounds crazy but that is exactly what happened. So if you've got young people in your family ask him. If they've been thinking about that they've been talking about that and ask him. If it really makes sense I will tell you this. You've heard me say I'm no immunologist. I'm no infectious disease. Expert and I am no economist but I can read and I can study and I have been reading history and the only other two times. There's been any kind of economic shutdown like this was during World War One and World War. Two when the economy became subordinate to the war effort. And I can't tell you this that when it was over there was such a pit up appetite. Such a picked up appetite that the economy really recovered and recovered quickly and robustly. I wonder if that's what's going to happen now. Oil minus thirty seven dollars and sixty cents a barrel for May futures. That can't last. Obviously but I wonder is when the economy gets turned back on. If there's going to be such a pit up appetite for everything that when people get jobs again and get cash flow again if it's just gonNA turn things back on in such a way that we have a really big rebound now. I'm the incurable optimist. In the twenty five shows I've done I said follow. The science listened to the science. There will come a tipping point where there's more risk to stay in quarantine. Then there is to come out of Corentin. I don't know when that will be but I know whenever that is because we'll never get to zero will never get to zero cases. Whenever that is science will tell us that science will say this is is now a calculated risk that there will be a right way and a wrong way to get back out there it will be with phases and conditions. That's what science is telling US and right now. This is not a medical equation. This is a behavioral equation. Is the virus a medical condition? Yes it is. But it's our behavior that has controlled it. It's your behavior your spirit your strength that has controlled this. You're not helpless and you have shown great strength. You have shown great will to turn this around and God bless you for doing it. Being an isolation is very altruistic thing because most of the people in isolation are not in a high risk group. And so you've done it to help others more than yourselves and God bless you for doing that. You've done it to help others a very altruistic thing. Of course you've done to help yourself but you've made tremendous sacrifices for those. That would probably have a worse time of the new. Let's not go through all of this and then go back out there in such a hurried fashion that we have such a spike such a surge that we wind up right back today. One right back where we were where it's spreading like wildfire and we have to go back into quarantine again started all over. We've done such a good job as a country all of those projections that were made with the models of two hundred fifty thousand people dead. Those weren't off because people were incompetent. They were off because they underestimated the ability and willingness to the American people to make a sacrifice. And they'll say oh no we took into account Corentin in and social distancing and all that but they didn't they didn't take into account how far Americans were willing to go and critics will say they're still people out there having backyard parties in secret. They're still people meeting up in dating in secret in all there's always a critic there's always somebody to find fault with what's going on but I'm telling you in the main Americans have done a damn good job here. They've done a damn good job here and like I said I'm not an immunologist. I'm not an infectious disease expert. But I am a behavioral expert. And I've watched the behavior. I've watched the spirit. I've watched the mental emotional commitment to this in Americans have done a damn good job and that's why this thing has turned around. They certainly haven't given us a vaccine. They certainly haven't given us billions of doses of antibodies. We've controlled this. We've control this by being an isolation playing by the rules so let's stick with it just a little bit longer. Let's stick with this and if we need to follow certain phased program to get back out there. Let's do it. I mean it's going to happen very soon. So let's do it. I mean New York today. I think they had less than five hundred deaths for the first time since April second. I mean it's declining. That means even even governor Cuomo said. I think we've reached our apex. We've started down the other side. That's the hot spot of the world. They're saying we down the other side. This has turned around. It appears duck it surge again tomorrow or something yes it could but it appears that we're trending in the right direction. Let's hang in there just a little bit longer and let this turn around. I know you can do it. I know I can do it. It's been easy for me because I'm a homebody okay. I'm going to quit giving you a raw raw speech but I'm GonNa tell you from where I sit from a psychological mental emotional behavioral perspective. I've seen what everyone is done in what everyone is doing and listen there. Are People out there protesting in the streets to open everything up now. This America people have the right to express their views. Maybe they're right. It's not one size. Fits all different states different counties. Different communities have different levels of need. Maybe they're right. I don't know it's not my position to judge them but this America but has a right to express themselves. But you do. What's right for you look around? You do what's right for you? Look at the number of cases. Look at the death count. Do what's right for you model effectively for your children. And if that means expressing your views means getting aside and going out and protesting or whatever do what you feel like you have to do but do it responsibly. We'll talk again and Listen tune into the shows. We're doing some really good shows on shameless plug here. But we're doing some good responsible shows with top-drawer experts you know. Look at the experts. We've had we've got you know four with ties to Harvard Duke. Ucla USC Johns Hopkins. We're having a best experts in the world on to tell us the truth. No politics just science. You're going to hear the truth. You can find everything. They've had to say on our website and on Dr Phil Youtube Channel. Find Everything Dr Nagy has had to say. Dr Glenn. Bill has had to say Dr Free has had to say Dr Ayman has had to say all these people have had to say. I'm not pretending I know what the deal is. I'm just bringing you the people that I know for damn sure know what to say. Okay have a good week. Have no idea what things are going to look like this time. Next week I'll tell you what I'll be here. I hope you are to tell your friends to listening to him to listen to this. Because I think we're talking common sense here commonsense so full.

Six Forty Five everywhere on the IHEART radio APP it is dark secret weekly look at the world melting down and a lot of lot of melted all over the world. We'll give you the latest on the What they're calling a ceasefire in the Caucasus between the Armenian enclave of. Karabakh or Awestruck is perhaps you've learned to say. And the surrounding country other Biljon A whole lot of local Tien obviously with several hundred thousand. Ethnic Armenians in southern California alone nearly a million in California including a former governor. Dukmajian so a lot of people. Very interested with the connections and let me just say. A to all of you in the Armenian community who reached out to me giving me direct sources. Thank you very much. I actually have more than I need and and so I've been in direct contact with with a lot of people in the capital of. Nagorno. Karabakh Stepanakert. Is is your phrase pays on that one and in none of here's the thing they don't want US voices on the air but I've got a lot of information, direct first hand information, and so thanks to all of you who've helped me with that and and thanks to some of my old sources here on. Olive. Avenue. By the way for for direct phone numbers to their brothers in the like. That are there. There's there's a certain there's a certain style or a certain store that specializes in a certain product up and down all of avenue and and if many of them are Syrian Christians but then many others are Armenians including Armenians from nagorno-karabakh. So we'll get to that also. North Korea with a very, very unusual. Military prayed today honoring the seventy fifth anniversary of the formation of the Korean Workers Party because the right no party like Korean Workers Party. Workers Party depress the hell out of you over three generations So but a brand new gigantic thick. Thick. It's the kids are saying ICBM we still don't know the name, but anyway, we'll talk about that and then the the insurrectionists these guys in Michigan. At at at the risk of of. providing. A useful critique I'll I'll tell you why what they were doing was just really really dumb and and besides the obvious thing, which is well wait you can just simply vote the governor out of office the next time and she's done a bang-up job of getting big getting people who wants her to not anymore. But still though an elected official in America. Yeah. You don't assassinate him. That's that's never never ended well So we'll we'll get to all that and then my my my working theory. But which I don't want to. Draw. Too much from. An obscure movie but there there's a movie called. Eagles landed perhaps you've seen it from a Jack Higgins now only forgotten. But anyway great movie. Michael. CAINE Donald Sutherland Robert duvall right all in one movie. The Eagles landing. It's about a fictional episode and we'll two or the Nazis sent commandos dressed as Polish Free Polish guys to England to assassinate. Churchill. Right and at the beginning of the movie, it's a ludicrous idea. It's an absolutely. Ridiculous idea but Robert Duvall is told to make study and as he studies it, he realizes wow, this could maybe actually work I have the right guys Churchill's GonNa be at his country cabin. Might actually work. Okay. So here's the thing and I'm on the record. You you can check the twitter feed from. The night before last. And the day before. By the way at dark secret place on on twitter. When Nancy Pelosi had her press conference where she was announcing that she favours forming a commission sort of A. a prepatory commission just in case, the twenty Fifth Amendment has to be invoked course the amendment about how to remove a president who's mentally or physically incapable of completing his term You know and all that and her reason for doing this was because she was saying that trump clearly was not in his right mind over the last few days since he's gotten out of Walter Reed he was evidently on some. Sort of steroid that that nine out of ten democratic leaning medical specialists on MSNBC. Say is changing his judgment and the whole thing. So that was her causes belly on this one. This was a reason to get out there because he was all concerned about trump but I immediately saw through it and I re tweeted the story about Pelosi talking about the twenty Fifth Amendment and I said Operation Kamla Twenty one has commenced. And I even did Roman numerals to make it more ominous, right? and that seems to be where a lot of people were stuck. Is Oh that's what it is is she couldn't do it if their plan is for Biden to resign right after he takes the inauguration. So the communist President you you couldn't. Start that then You have to do it when trump is president because no Democrat would would disagree with that because of course, he's crazy isn't it? They should have done this three years ago and all that. So that's the Trojan horse as if Comal is not enough of a Trojan horse, but that's the Trojan horse right and I was I was gonNA leave it alone. I was going to leave it at that operation. Kamla that. Biden, she's otherwise underwhelming to all democrats. She didn't make it to Iowa. Word is people who spend time around her. Not now that she doesn't need your favors anymore to get where. He said tangentially. Now that she's pure unadulterated, Tomlin no, one can stand her. So there's that. I was going to leave that. That she couldn't bring this up when Biden was president. But if that's the plan she has to set those wheels in motion. Now then that way when Biden's obvious cognitive decline becomes even more obvious than they can gracefully invoke the twenty fifth. Amendment you know he doesn't resign the and off he goes and she's president well, okay. I'll be leaving that and then today the other shoe dropped. And if you follow me on twitter, you know what I'm about to say today. The November December issue of Foreign Affairs magazine dropped online and your copy be in the mail I'm not kidding about obscure magazine. This is not foreign policy dot Com online. This is foreign affairs. If you don't know this foreign affairs has a a-list of. Worldwide. Political Luminaries, writing columns and articles. It it is. A. Publication of record. So out of the clear blue sky today. A foreign policy document was dropped a white paper about the future of defense spending and foreign policy a it would be if you were president, it would be. A significant speech. If this, if you were running for president, this would be the Obama foreign policy is going to be announced at West Point in a two hour speech or whatever that would be what this was. You know who? Published this under her byline under her name. Clue. Her. It was Hillary Clinton. Out of the clear blue sky. In October of twenty. Twenty. Hillary Clinton. Is laying out a future but defense spending and diplomacy versus defense foreign policy I mean a major foreign policy and defense. Speech given as a article in foreign affairs dot com I tweeted out a link to it. And I mean it's Arcane is in the weeds she which she or whoever whatever team wrote this for, and by the way it has Leon Panetta's. Fingerprints all over it, Ben Rhodes the rest of the Obama crew and some of the Clinton crew but she gets into the weeds about the aircraft carrier readiness availability because of onerous maintenance schedules. I copied and pasted in a bit of it, and then it struck me. Kamla. Is a Trojan horse. That this twenty Fifth Amendment Thing Almost Twenty Fifth Amendment, thing leads to a scenario and this is this is my eagles landed moment. This is my this is where I turned into Robert. Hall. When he saw all the stuff in the movie and it's coming together. And he realizes Whoa as crazy as it seems we can have reasonable a reasonable chance at succeeding and kidnapping or assassinating. Winston Churchill I forgot the goal in Eagle has landed was to kidnap Churchill. So. That was what I realized Oh. That's what this is about. Because This has never happened in the American constitution or in American history. But a president elect. And a vice president elect before the electoral. College convenience. The vice president elect can resign. And then the president elect with the. Executive Committee of his own party get to decide on who the new vice president elect is. So. Now is when you have to put your your head, put yourself in the mind what are the most loathed politicians in American History Hillary Clinton. If you're her what happened in two thousand sixteen. The election was stone. If you're a Democrat the election was stolen, she won the popular vote but it was stolen. So, Turnabout fair-play. So Comma Harris Resigns on November tenth. She remains a US senator from California and she's only whatever forty, nine, fifty one it is. She's in politics. She's a young woman. I mean. I Know Dianne Feinstein has a pretty pretty high bar but still. Very Young. So she resigns she becomes a she remains a US senator because Joe Biden and the Democratic Party Committee Name Hillary Clinton new vice president elect. and Bob's your uncle. Oh, I'm I'm not saying I buy this saying it's weird how this came together in my mind after I saw a major foreign policy. White Paper. Out of the clear blue sky out of know someone who has an held office in years. And is supposed to. Not Matter Anymore. But in her mind, she would she's looking at her second term. She should have been president these last four years. Anyway. Bounce it around your dog in Tell me what you know try to shoot holes in it. I WANNA see why that be be and you know why? Because Twenty Twenty in book hasn't been crazy enough yet back in the second to see darts replace live streaming by the way. On Youtube at on sheep yourself dot com.

Am Six forty live at we're on the iheartradio APP. Cave I am forty hit his. Dark. Secret Place Sprang suits in here. Until Eleven. Is Our weekly look at the world melting down and the world's been melting down now for about two weeks in the caucuses. And the situation for fourteen days appears. To have calmed down for a little bit but there's two different stories are supposed to be a ceasefire between the ethnic Armenian enclave called nagorno-karabakh or Awestruck if you if you around the L. A. Area on the one, seventy on the four. Oh Five. Of course on the to ten on on the pedestrian overpasses, you see Armenian flags with Hashtag struck ast are a cage. And I have found out from my the referrals that I got the people who are physically in there that that is what they call it that they don't use the term Gorno car. And that in its capital to panicker You probably shouldn't call it Nagorno-karabakh. showed up from BBC or whomever. And you're saying. I'm just happy to be here in nagorno-karabakh. They may act like they don't know what you're saying because that's that's a soviet-era name and it it uses Azerbaijani words a stroke is the ethnic Armenian term for this click. The some other local impacts about this so that there's a lot of people asking how to help and they're buying first aid combat gear to send to our media how it gets into a stroke from Armenia is a is a bit. Dicey. Because Giannis are enforcing effectively a a blockade but. There's a ceasefire right now and according to the other by Johnny side. It is ceasefire. Simply, for the purpose of exchanging prisoners and the debt. And according to the Armenian side, and again, the Republic of Armenia is not this island this this enclave in the middle of Azerbaijan but. Obviously. They support US rock. They they're not firing shots from Armenian soil. That's that's the line that the Armenian seven cross Joe, the as Abidjan's accused them of that. And that would be a different kettle of fish. But this ceasefire is notionally according to Moscow. It's a ceasefire till further notice, it's exchange prisoners. And also. Give the enemy back their dead and if you've been watching this unfold on video for the past fourteen days you've seen. There are numerous land battles were the other by Giannis have overrun. Armenian positions. And the dead or scattered about, and then the Armenians have re-taken. Some of those positions and as Dead Ours Azerbaijanis are scattered about. And what I I've seen to be honest with you have seen them. Both sides take care to not. Be Defiling Each Other's Dad. because. They know that they they may be prisoners. Tomorrow or the next the next day. So the seems to be a respect for that, and and this cease fire for the purpose of exchanging prisoners and the dead wood would bear that out. By the way both sides immediately accused the other of violating the ceasefire, and since that's the way it is there's no way to figure out who did it or whatever. But by largest probably holding the. Don't hold your breath for that to happen or for for to continue to hold who is winning so far Well, the answer by Jonny had a plan and they had momentum and they have on two different fronts and sort of a pincer movement in the south and the north. Have taken significant insignificant. They've taken nearly one hundred square miles of of nagorno-karabakh awestruck. In the fourteen days can they hold it? We don't know and who are behind who are the puppet masters here is Putin calling the shots for Armenia and is president. Erdogan of Turkey still ostensibly a NATO ally calling the shots for other by John or these guys just the arms dealers. And whose. whose technology is possibly changing warfare in the future the answer may surprise you. We'll be back after this. It is the dark secret place Brian in here to eleven Kfi am six, forty live where on the IHEART radio APP. If I am six, hundred, hundred artistic replace Brian Suits. Here until eleven with the the world melting down paying attention to the conflict in the Caucasus with a lot of local implications with the ethnic Armenian enclave called. AWESTRUCK. Being attacked, and by the way if you're looking for will who attack to as an American. You would say well as Abidjan two weeks ago unprovoked began a deliberate preplanned ground assault into this enclave because that's what happened. You don't just go from a standing start to assault order with artillery coordination and air support. Whole thing unless it was a plan that now if you talk to people from the Caucasus, they'll say, well, no, that's not what it was. It was a nineteen ninety-four union-brokered will I learned that in the Balkans that you can't just this one time? This. One time of the Balkans. We're on the side of the mountain called Mount Vis, and there was an old world war two era Soviet t thirty, four tank there but it was painted in the colors of the Bosnian Serb army. and. and I said to my translator I pointed to the tank and I said what happened here was ninety five. And he thought I was like pointing to the mountain but I said what happened here And he said well, in twelve, Fifty, seven, the Ottoman Turks came. Like blaze, there are short version Americans always want the short version and you can't look at this conflict in the caucuses with its layers of complexity and say, just give me the short version. Because the short version is. That if you're Armenian, it looks like Erta one wants to Redo. The genocide from a one hundred and two years ago. and first of all the US Senate the US government called genocide or earlier this year earn one. Of course when bananas as he does, he only has he's got zero two bananas gay my my amplifier goes from zero to eleven. His goes from zero to bananas and don't ever use the word genocide. All thing. So you understand passions are at a fever pitch. So when aired on back Sir by John. In their desire to retake, they say retake this area does overwhelmingly ethnically are median than you understand you're pulling at some very sensitive historic strings there, which is why aired ones doing it. Initially, and so far the other by Janis have had tremendous success using a weapon that we've seen in Syria. And that is the suicide drone the suicide UNLV. And One little ones that the by Giannis had early success with and here's the deal. This is what's called a loitering weapon. You launch it ten kilometers away from your your the suspected target area. Artillery's coming from this one grid square. Five, kilometers away you launch several of these drones and the operators fly them individually give him an area to go to. Then they begin scanning with the optics and they discover some Armenian t seventy two's that are in dugout revenue mints that from the ground, you wouldn't be able to see. But. The drone is circling above at about sixty miles an hour just making circles a two thousand feet nobody down there can hear it. And the operator. The Azerbaijani operator then designates a target and then guides that that drawn down onto the t seventy two and if it doesn't destroy, it outright immobilizes it and this has been a devastating weapon unveiled by the as. Roma. Janis which many of us have known about for years. One, of the earliest ones was made in. Monrovia at Arab firemen. Monrovia slash seamy valley or the test them and stuff the Chinese have done very very well with this kind of weapon because very quietly the people supplying them with weapon are Israel Aircraft Industries Because I. Has Made The sky striker a drone for. Nearly a decade now. Many people operate them. The Israelis upright them as by John operates them. The Israelis have been on the ground and observation since the late nineties one when I was in Baku interviewing for Radio Free Europe Voice of America the hotel I was in was with US special forces and Israeli guys Israeli civilians. They for for Israel by John is a strategic allies because I. If I remind you how the map works as a by John, has a lengthy southern border with the northern border of Iran and in any future Israeli strike on rainy nuclear forces the search and rescue on the part of the Israelis downed pilots would originate in Azerbaijan. Worst. Kept secret about the future strike the future joint Israeli strike on Iran. So, Iran not a big fan of by John which might confuse you at this point because wait aren't they all Muslims well, they'll play that card when it's convenient. In this case, Azerbaijan has made it crystal clear. They're not too tight with Iran's flavor of Islam, and the Iranians therefore have declared that the other by Janis are of course heretics. And even even worse there apostates. Way But they're not they're they're in bed with the Jews and so the enmity between Azerbaijan and Ron. Can't be adequately expressed. So where the strange bedfellows come in? Iran also shares a border with Armenia and if you don't know this Armenia. is is a branch of the eastern Orthodox, the Armenian Orthodox. Church. A brand branch of the eastern Orthodox Church. You can see the brand new church is right off I, five at the western end of Burbank. Copper Dome, beautiful place. It's big here. And they are Orthodox Christians are they are they not won't yes. The Iranians because the Armenians are fighting with other by John. The Iranian suddenly are friends with Armenia a lot more than they have been, which by the way, the as Johnny Armenian border has been the number one way for blockade breaking spare parts and other things like that to get into Iran. So the Iranians have been relationship with Armenia for a long long long long time Now, who is backing Armenia? Well, you got the best guy in that time zone is behind Armenia and he's in Moscow named Latimer. Putin. The Armenian armed forces operate almost exclusively a Soviet era. Russian made weapons same on the other by Janis by the way. So they know each other systems with a couple exceptions, Azerbaijanis. Are have other lethal weaponry supplied by Israel and they've already used it in the form of cluster munitions that have been. Undeniably targeted on civilian areas there there was a pretty well documented rocket attack on the capital of stroke nagorno-karabakh. The capitals to panicker and the unexploded munitions that were left behind showed that it was from an Israeli rocket system. That the ultra by Janis. Had A contract with five years ago these things have been sitting in the barn. Now they're using them and they're using them. Undeniably, they're using already a banned weapon cluster munitions and they're using them in the most banned way against civilian areas because of in the map recon that I did, and then the people insta- panicker that I was talking directly to I. Ask them is there anything? Is there a barracks? Is there a ministry of of war crimes and Ministry of defence is there is there are there any government offices where those cluster munitions hit and if you go if you follow my twitter feed, you go back about a week you'll see this what apparently was. dashboard footage or something, but someone had a camera on a street. In a civilian neighborhood of apartments and a wooded. Forested mile a wooded street Cape Tall mature overgrowth on a street full cars parked. And Azerbaijani cluster munitions hit. In several waves on the street and there there's not a military legitimate target anywhere according to my sources they're and they're what they told me checks out I do google earth and so there's no doubt at this point that the. Janis were targeting civilian areas now in turn the Azerbaijanis are claiming that Armenia proper. Not The Independent. Australian. Armenian enclave. But the actual republic of Armenia launched rockets at as by John Now. The evidence that they provided actually shows that it did not come from Armenia because I used to do that, which is what's called Crater Nelson's says Reichen look at a crater and the leftovers of rocket and tell you the asthma that the back azimuths where it was shot from and probably of within a to of where it was launched anyway. So from what I've seen the the first use of. Outlawed weapons cluster munitions specifically against a civilian area was by the AS Roma Janis and so we'll be back right after this more on this more local fallout on the Armenia John Conflict. When we come back, it is dark secret place. Kfi Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. Am Six forty. Voice is correct. I'm a man. I've ever run the IHEART for. Radio. APP. It is the dark secret replaced talking about the latest developments. Out of the Armenian enclave that is called locally, stroke and by the re by US media and nagorno-karabakh and sort of the the deadlock that we're at now is that the other by Janis appeared to have a good assault plan for three days and I think they assumed that the EMI would collapse before them the awestruck the local military are not. Officially, connected with the Republic of our Menia army, they're they're not as well equipped but they did a lot better than it would appear. The Janis thought they would which is, which is funny because they have near total air superiority. On this because aired awan has four deployed Turkish airforce sixteen announcer by John. So this is the part where. NATO was tried to talk sense into one saying you know, do you understand when you get involved in your Empire Building Wars? You're a NATO nation and that we're just afraid that if Putin defense his ally Armenia and shoots down Turkish of sixteen, you're going to invoke article. Five and say that you were attacked and you understand you sending your air force to other by John. So we can shoot down Armenian aircraft that's not self defense and I think he understands that I think he's he's he's taking that. that calculated risk. As I say if you can see by the day warfare changing as the combat use of of the suicide drone has proven the concept, the investment of one hundred, thousand bucks. In a pilotless aircraft with a eleven kilogram warhead about thirty, five pound warhead. the. Into the top. The most vulnerable part of a tank is the top of the Turret. And attacking downward destroying tank even what's not destroyed its incapacitated it's adults fight. And you can just sense of from Washington DC from the Pentagon to Moscow all around the world people are paying attention conflict they're seeing how effect of the Azerbaijan, the most effective thing that the answer by Johnny's doing. In terms of using forcing sexual combat troops. Now. For their part, they're means do have some systems but nowhere near while the Azerbaijanis have been. Supplied by the Israelis with, and they're also the Israeli systems are just better the other thing that's going on that's being confirmed Putin got pants. He had his trousers taken down in Libya earlier this year because one of his number one arms exports is a wheeled anti-aircraft system. And it is vaunted by the Russians is supposed to be a perfect system affordable from Venezuela to Abu Dhabi. Because it can engage everything from helicopters at one hundred feet above tree level. Up to ten thousand feet tactical aircraft. Well, the problem is the Achilles heel apparently is that a can't detect drones. Because in Libya so far with the with the Russians supplying. The the Libyan government of national. Accord. they've they've been, I'm sorry, the other side, the the Libyan national army, the rebel guys they've been rolling along with this Russian pants here system they've had a few with Russia operators K. and they'd been destroyed they every one of them that that hit the ground in Libya has been destroyed by drone that probably cost as much as a spare tire. And in all the video, these things don't alert. They don't power up they don't look like they're trying to shoot back and over the past fourteen days if you were in the pipeline to send a check to Moscow for that anti-aircraft system, you're you're probably putting stopped payment on that check because if there are any successes on the ground they're they're not becoming obvious. So what? Might happen. Is it. It would appear that Putin wants to broker a peace. His number one goal is to stop the bleeding, stopped the embarrassment of of his weapons systems and just make it go back to the prewar. If Amazon doesn't want to hear about that. Then Putin can turn up the heat. and. His next maneuver. If if answer a is not a Yes than answer, B. is well, then I'm going to send peacekeepers in there. They're gonNA keep the peace by peacekeeping. They're really really peaceful. I'm GonNa, take several regiments of airborne guys and they're going to spray paint their helmets light blue. It's not going to have a UN sanction on it whatsoever but I'm going to call them peacekeepers and guess what they're going to be between the Armenians and you guys, and if one errant shot flies of the head of any my boys, you're going to get it. Because this was his maneuver in Georgia in two thousand and eight and at work now, the difference here though. Is that about five five days six days ago President Emmanuel macron of France. The secretary say the United States Mike. POMPEO and Sergei Lavrov of Russia all. Issued a joint statement saying that. peaceful initiatives must be found in this must be a priority and all that. This was basically a signing on to the Russian Armenian side effectively because air to one is not calling for peace. He sang continued war would be foolish to stop and let us keep what we have but wondering what's plummer complex. Don't come back next hour then we'll talk about. Insurrection and the United States is plot to kidnap a seated governor of Michigan and the gigantic parade. In the middle of the night in North Korea earlier today revealing a brand new huge icbm that we never knew about that markup, our number two of the dark secret place. Right of this Kfi am six forty.

Nearby complete radio transmitter will actually broadcast from tape before the shot. Term they out of them. Dark secret place with Brian Suits. Thereby AMC forty seven number two, the dark secret place live where on the iheartradio. Bronzes here next hour So some people emailed me and said man you spot on back on January twenty fifth about the whole Kobe think. And this is apropos of in the vice presidential debate. Pamela Harris made the accusation that well, you knew all this stuff back in late January and you didn't do anything about not me. She was talking about trump. and. So it prompted some people to say, Hey, you should audit that nine months that. Showed that you did if you're new show to Darcy replaced. Back on January twenty fifth. Did sort of a future war of the worlds. Broadcast. That was set in June of twenty twenty one as if I was holding the CDC's Final Report on California's failure to address the looming covid nineteen pandemic. So I, offered it and you can audit with me next hour. So this afternoon I audited. I critiqued it will play that next hour you can. You can play along as well. Your suggestions and I'm I'm honest where I was wrong. and. Then there's quite a bit of it that. I'm eerily right on and then who's going to say you were pretty close on a lot of asterisks where well, it's not fall yet. You know there's some of it still has to play out. I I was I got to say, I wasn't that off with the dead but how many dead so far I just said it would happen in a shorter amount of time because that's how nine hundred thousand happened. It was an influenza, a corona virus but so anyway later on this hour, how to not form a militia. North Korea held. A bit of a party the seventy fifth anniversary of the KP. W. The Korean Workers Party. Or Communist Party, of North Korea. And the Kim Jong it as an opportunity to. Unveil. Some frankly surprising weapon systems everything from a new larger ICBM that has as of this early this morning never been seen before and there wasn't just one trundling down the the prayed way there were several in a row. And right down to some small-arms, we didn't know the North Koreans. Had Now now granted, you know this isn't the entire north. Korean army. but it's it's thousands and thousands of troops representing the North Korean Naval Infantry, which is marines. Army border guards the whole thing. Some first impressions and I'll send a link out to the UN edited four K. two and a half hour stream. But It's given us some insight into whether or not corona has actually hit North Korea or not. So thing one. Kim Jong. UN is wearing western style suit and to be totally honest. He looks like he's lost weight. The reasoning behind that is because nobody would survive the encounter of they came to him and said, we're GONNA put in, of course it for two and a half hours here me out. Or put in a course at for two and a half hours Mickey. Look thinner. Even a sister probably wouldn't wouldn't be down with that. It really looks like legit he lost weight which might give credence to did he have the covid four months ago or one of the five times this year he's been declared dead. Maybe, there was some sickness besides the obvious thing. which is that he is a mother love and fat ass and the Fattest Man North Korea and I don't think. That's even a debate and so up there on the day dais and the the viewing stand. Of course, he had rows and rows and rows of the stone-faced upper ranks of the North Korean People's Army. And these are the guys in the Khaki uniforms with the rose of metals. FESTOON eating their uniform from their collarbone to their scrotum on the left side and the right side they're just. So they're so awesome that they don't just wear one row one set of ribbons on their left chest no. No they're that much better than everyone else on earth they need to rose they should wear two suits they're going to be wearing him down the back soon. Anyway, the skill with those guys is to not crack an emotion. The only emotion acceptable is gushing tears which on on Q. Happen Today. So, Kim Jong Un gave about a twenty minute speech before he said, unleash the amazing parade in. Korea. So thing one nobody and there were about one hundred luminaries, etc on the viewing stand. Nobody, wearing a mask. And they were shoulder to shoulder on in the front row. Kim Jong was flanked. Shoulder shoulder by his generals and then behind him several rows nut too. But as they say in certain military services were other senior ranking guys no masks. No. Masks. And so you'll. You'll recall back in if we're if we're playing the memory game. One the Canary in the coalmine for me early January was when news came that north. Korea. Shut down the border with China. Just slapped it down and the guards as we found out a couple of weeks ago are literally on shoot to kill orders. And that means anybody coming in from China, across the Yellow River or up in the northern border I mean the North East border the other river there forgot they. They are shooting to kill anyone that comes across the board. Now, here's the reason that was significant back in January for North Korea that is their doorway to luxury Western goods. That is how smugglers come in from China. With luxury goods for the black market in North Korea, they bribe the border guards with a four K.. TV. The bribe, the Border Guard Brigade commander you know that's. It's as corrupt as hell. So, that was shut down. The, the North Koreans who have experience with famine. And what happens right after famine? Well, it's your your pestilence when when horsemen number one shows up horsemen number twos right behind him and the. North. Koreans. Know this. They live far more closely to the earth than we do they. They are no strangers to epidemics. Most of them generated. So when they shut down that border and said, we don't need that money because if we lived leave that border open that China bat soup virus is going to get in here in the way we live is GonNa kill all of us. And so they shut down that border. So is a proof in the pudding I don't know but I was looking at. Thousands tens of thousands of people in close formation in the parade nobody with a mask on. Up on the the the dais nobody with a mask on now is the joke on them and they'll come out with the next week and half of them die or whatever I'm GONNA say no. I'm going to tell you that like my story about Yugoslavia in one thousand, you know I've told the story ad nauseam about how Tito defeated a smallpox outbreak and Yugoslavia he did it with dictatorial powers. it's just sat. There was no time when the emergency was over the smallpox epidemic was defeated. He was still a dictator We you know juries out on Gavin newsom. So anyway, the Fitbit says I did ten thousand steps today despite clapping. Right, we'll take a break and I'll talk more about my bit. Online here, a youtube bet on yourself dot com, but it would appear. That North Korea was revealing several things today one of them is maybe it's a gigantic. Movie set or maybe they have not been ravished by the COGAN, we'll be back right after this secret place. KFI. Am Six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP Jean King Cadillac. Escalade.

And already, let's turn our attention to the Michigan I'm sorry the. The. Wolverine Watchmen. and. Let. Me just say this upfront. So you decided, you want to become an insurgent. Your number one job. If have any idea what you're doing from that point forward is security not. Let's think of awesome names. Insurrection is specifically. Something that the president can call the military in to quell and there's really not another word for this. I I didn't like the president's response talking about that woman in Michigan and all that because the issue at hand is that citizens taking advantage of the second amendment. Going to take up arms against a lawfully elected state government. and and I should say this. Regardless, of what you think about her performance in the pandemic, she was lawfully elected. She has a legal mandate from the People Michigan to be the governor. Will she be reelected? Well, not based on her covert performance and I'll say this. As loathsome as Gavin newsom is. As arbitrary as as he has been. He he's not even in the ballpark of this governor Michigan. So the fact that some nut bags got together and said Hey let's find two hundred like minded friends and storm the state capital I. Think it surprised it was predictable The, next wacky plot I would say it's coming out of Washington state where you have a equally tone-deaf governor Jay Inslee, and you have a lot of very very angry people in the part of the state. That's not Seattle who have a lot of firearms and they don't like that their livelihood have been kicked in the balls through nonscientific arbitrary decisions. Shielded behind the words, science and data just like newsom is doing here. But the guy up there is imitating newsom and he's he's doing it by pulling regulations right but. Anyway that's a precursor going on in Michigan. the the fact that these guys were so easily. Given up. This. Sort of points to what I said at the top of this that. The next guys that do something like this, and we will be talking about insurrection and civil war because they won't make the same mistakes at least shouldn't. How am I looking at this well, I have the affidavit. From. That was filed on the six which was what Wednesday night. Wednesday or Thursday. October. The. Guy was arrested the guys who were arrested on. October. Seventh sixth and seventh. And the the affidavit dropped on the seventh it's on Youtube you'll see I, did it three days ago I read the affidavit. As soon as it was released I, read it and we went through it. And we went through how the confidential human sources. There were two of them as well as to undercover FBI, agents were able to fairly easily penetrate this group and why well because. they they didn't know exactly who else was in their own militia and to. you know and and. It's lucky for us that these guys were incompetent. Because the initial plan. Was Ridiculous on the face of it Hey. Let's get two hundred guys who WANNA make a suicidal assault on the State Capitol and then as we're holding the governor will issue demands. As if Law Enforcement would respond somehow and it it. It what have been that plan had they been able to find two hundred idiots to join that plan? It would've wound up as. Branch Davidian two point Oh. And so some some of the early cell of militia who heard that plan one guy specifically went to the FBI and said, listen these guys that I go out on the weekends with and drink beer and shoot tires crossed the line and said something really wacky. Your point you're done you are done and then when they settled on plan B which was well, let's wait for her to go to that vacation home that they go to because that became famous because the governor's husband was caught. Trying to rent a boat when no one else could rent a boat out there they have a privately held privately owned vacation home. Then the governor of Michigan Whoever's in the office of governor has access to a vacation home. so Plan B was when she's on vacation let's set a distraction bomb and when her entire protective. Detail go running off to investigate that Bob will kidnap her take her to Wisconsin and put on trial because if you believe in authority then you're supporting slavery man. So who were these guys there'd be called or being called right wing there so far right wing. The line between them, ANTIFA is. Pretty blurred. Back in the second the the insurrection in Michigan right after this dark secret place. Kfi Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. Dance Party is what it is. I. Am six forty. It is the darts player Brian Ships in here. Live on the iheartradio APP. Love everywhere on the iheartradio APP also streaming on Youtube on cheap yourself. and. In my phone battery's dying. So I think it's going to be the end of it here, Tim so anyway. The Wolverine Watchman. With a silly concept and sort of made up oppression. What's funny is if you just spend ten minutes. Looking at some of the. Posts on facebook that these guys were putting up specifically Brandon Caserta CAS. RTA and this is a guy with. Post Malone TAT's from his cheekbones. All the way down gigantic hoop you know. Air Rings the ones that are stuck in the air and the ear lobe and all that. And he's going on and on and on about in one screed he's he's saying that if you. Follow Government Authority than you're supporting slavery because you're no better than a slave if you follow the law. And all that and these guys whose genius plan was to kidnap the governor and then put her on trial because of her misuse of authority they decided that the all authority is evil unless it's them. So they were somehow muster up the three to put her on trial and then they were gonNA execute. So I think you can save the trial of that point or something but you know I would like to think that the idiots get. Called out by the heard and and the whole thing. But there are still a lot of people who are looking at. A chaotic situation more so than perhaps they've ever been in in their life and they're saying the pandemic plus a political disarray. And the by the way, these guys they didn't like trump. They supported killing cops. black lives matter defunding police. They were so far to the quote, right? Close quote. that. They blurred line with Antiga. and. They're still being described as far right now they're beyond far-right. They're not. Indicate, if you're right wing, you believe in the constitution you believe in allowing the rule of law and objectivity not feelings emotions, but it's it's there. It's in the constitution. These guys didn't believe in the constitution. So they fail at thing number one about being a conservative. And they and they didn't like trump. But So so anyway objectively looking at it as an insurgency. I as I read the affidavit. I couldn't help but but ping it of. One of my favorite military manuals from. From your your what are we talking to nine? Was it? Join Publication Three Dash Zero five point one year unconventional warfare pocket God. Because The in counterinsurgency because you see I did that for eighteen months in in Baghdad. I develop relationships so that we could identify insurgent cells and either penetrate them with our own people not Americans but with our people. Or provide incentives to give up information or best case scenario provide incentives so that they didn't insurgent and that they just self reported. and Said Yeah, we're not GonNa do this anymore that was a win and we did that. By winning the insurgency by overcoming their objectives. But if guys decided Nah, we're GONNA still insurgent. Well, we took care of them. But I learned and I was trained and I learned that the best way to do it is get in their mindset be them for a minute. And same with these guys. and. So I'm I'm I'm really serious but I'll be serious about this and I'll say this on the air to maybe save some of us. Grief. I have been from time to time contacted by people who listen to K-, fire listen to the podcast or whatever this started happening. During the Obama Presidency, there were a lot of people thought that your guns we're going to be taken away and the whole thing. And and. You wanted information on how to communicate securely with each other and I and I said e don't do that now to be honest back when I did live shows pre pandemic one of the show I did last year if any of you who went to it was called what how do hide your gun from Gavin newsom that was the name of the show and in during that live show I taught you how to hide guns from Gavin newsom well, you know he hasn't come from yet but it's not the only area When when I'm contacted by people who want to go to the next level I always respond back to them. You've failed in the first thing you contacted me via email using those words don't ever contact me again, and if I were you drop the idea and so I would say this to the KFI listener. If. You're thinking that we're on the verge of a civil war. I cleaned up the mess left in from a civil war for year my life in Bosnia. Cape were not near that. I wasn't around eighteen sixty. But. One of my experiences in life was cleaning up the mess of a civil war and that not only means the feelings of the various warring sides. But I'm talking literally about mass graves about exhuming mass graves. Full of kids adults old people even one that had the family pet senate. Really Weird. And so I've seen what civil war can do, and that was an ethnic civil war but a civil war nevertheless. and. I'm telling you that you're racing to a conclusion that no evidence supports whether you're far left and you say trump's not gonNA leave the White House. It from a practical standpoint if he loses the election. He's GonNa leave the White House The Washington. Post had a story today about a pro Bono attorneys are gonNA make themselves available? because. If you're not aware of this, there's going to be fairly significant national guard active call up prior to the election. there's going to be considerable federal law enforcement. Resources moved to Washington DC and all think it's. If you can't figure it out. November is GONNA be as show leading up to the election, and there's not gonna be a winner on the night of Tuesday November third. So it's going to be an show possibly for several weeks as as dribs and drabs of envelopes from states that have never had mail it elections are trying to make trying to. D F. This first time ever here we have to enforce We have a lot of male inexperience and Dean Logan. The county registrar knows exactly where to find enough ballots to get whatever tax increase to pass. Secondly. We're not in play. This state doesn't matter spoiler alert Biden Wins California they're gay but. I want you vote yes and proximity to and vote vote anyway I'm so anyway. You may not see it here. But in some of the swing states where they don't have a lot of male and experience it's to be an s show and there are some people who are going to say that they're stealing the election on both sides. You understand this if there are shot and by the way in Denver tonight, don't tell you about this. A pro Patriot rally a versus and ANTIFA rally happened and a pro Patriot guy was shot and killed. Turns out by a security contractor working for a TV. Outlet. Tell you about that. I have a really depressing sad feeling about this now as I say I've seen the aftermath of civil wars were not close to what set that one off. But we have loads and loads, loads of individuals who think that they're in a life or death moment and that they're being called upon as Patriots. I would just say this don't contact me because my next phone call will be to the FBI there. I've saved you some brief backward after this WHAT HAPPENED IN DENVER? I'll give you that what we know. The latest that we know in just a second Kfi am six, forty s e darcy replace live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. If I am sick forty live or on the iheartradio. APP. It is the dark secret place Bryan suits in here until eleven I wanna I wanna make crystal clear what I'm doing here when I'm when I'm critiquing these idiots in Michigan. I'm not giving you a how to guide. I I'm just saying that the is sorting out of the crazy people from the reasonable people because. If, you're out on wear of this. There were environmental terrorists in the in the late nineties and two thousands operating in Oregon on the state of Washington. I, think a little bit. In. California and some of it. In California was in the form of like guys repelling off the Golden Gate Bridge and then the firemen add unfurling a banner where they had to be taken down or there was that chick that in a tree at cal Berkeley because they were going to expand the football stadium and all that. And then every once in a while north, there were burnt houses and things like this in Oregon? Washington. houses under construction would be burned. Cars. new car lots would would have car fire set or acid on the hood and all this. and there was a group called Earth I. There is still around. But they were. involved in environmental activism terrorism. And Then then they attacked a lab at the University of Washington. In. I. Forgot the Irwin Similar two thousand. One done to and I think there was somebody in the lab that was injured or whatever. At. at that point the FBI. Put men on the case and that was last of them. Hey. Engineer. Eric. Did you know that the University of Missouri Football Coach you know his name? No not at the top of my head. Ally drink wits. That's a great name for a Football Mula drink lance. who was the quarterback von the guy for Tcu or Kansas who great football name like von Big Boyer's. Only, quarterback I know his Andy Dalton yet he's no longer a quarterback really I mean, let's face back for digress You like drink wits. Anyway Yeah, so they were penetrated and. The ringleaders were found. And brought to bear. Shall we say? you watch in the next few months. So heads up if you have a nephew or niece who's in Antiga. You Might WanNa give me a heads up on on this. They should get away from their. At least. Don't accept a promotion. And if anyone ever grabs him by the arm and says. Iran, you we have a proposal for you get away from that person immediately. And I don't have any inside knowledge except that I, know how the FBI works and I know that they're. The resources that they are marshalling. Towards ANTIGA. Mothership in Eugene Oregon which I've told you before I've I've been close to these guys since the nineties when they were just anarchists in Eugene. And then some of them turned twenty nine and said, F. This. I'M GONNA get a job and drive a truck others turned twenty nine and said, this is my lifestyle man. I'm going to do this forever because I'm right. The world's wrong I'm against fascism and stuff Well, they were almost justin annoyance until the last twelve months. Now that when the president of the United States knows your name. Your organization is not long for this world. And You might. WanNa Research Black Panthers and see what happens and the Black Panthers. Never tore a city apart like ANTIFA did to Portland and Seattle. So. So anyway, that's just my counterinsurgency spidey sense telling some of you first of all, don't think about it. Don't. Contact somebody by email does don't do it because we're we're not close to civil war. Then, being said, it's not November yet. And we're talking about. I have a frame of reference far different than most other people you know I. I was there when on thousand Iraqi. Army guys were dismissed and had nothing to do. But they didn't have any counters or any insurgency training they were just conventional soldiers. But it was the guys in Iraqi intelligence who had the insurgents insurgency training and experience who organized them. Because keep in mind in a nation of what was thirty, five million and only two hundred thousand Americans on the ground. If they really did want to organize and have an insurgency, we would have been all dead in twenty four hours. And so I got to see this form. And I got to find out what their grievances were and find out early before they pulled the trigger, we found ways to quell their desire for blood and insurgency anyone who went beyond that well now, that's a different set of problems. So my frame of Reference About they're tearing this country apart and we're on the verge of civil war is far different than other people but that's not important. All that means is that I'm not going to run around forming a militia but what good is that if other people think this is the worst I've ever seen it this must be what was like before the Civil War Oh my advice to you is to read up on the civil war. And read up. On the. Irish Republican Army. Read up on those. Grievances. Before you call what what were about to do, which by the way is a constitutionally mandated election a quadrennial election for president. And so. hold your breath and calm down bomb. Appears happened in Denver is that there was a Patriot side and then there was a ANTIFA. Soup drive is what they were calling it, but it was a standard antiga demonstration there in Denver. And at one point, there was a there's eight Pinkerton Security Guy. WHO has a legal right to carry a concealed weapon? In this case, it was holstered and there was a confrontation with a guy identified as a Patriot guy and he had a can of hairspray and he sprayed the armed security guy. And the armed security guy shot him dead. The reason being is that if you're trying to chemically incapacitate an armed man, you're trying to kill him, you're trying to disarm him. So we'll this guy even be charged it will surprise me if they do but there's I mean news cameras were right there when it happened if. If you brought bear spray to a gun fight. You'RE GONNA lose anyway. All right. We're going to audit the January twenty fifth Covid nineteen. fictional broadcast I've gone over it today I'll give you my critiques when we come back, yours would be appreciated to. Back Right. If this is never three workaholics for the dark secret place Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio. APP. Coming from Brian Suits Kfi. Nearby, complete radio transmitted will actually broadcast from tape before the shot. I would bomb the out them. Darker secret place with Brian Suits Kfi. If I am six, forty is the dark secret place. However, three wore Hollick's Bryan suits here until eleven. And I was emailed by a couple of people who said that they have been passing on. The link on. iheartradio to the January twenty fifth twenty twenty of fictional our that I did where as it turns out apparently I. Did the first covid nineteen fiction on earth because I did a war of the worlds broadcast back in January where I my conceit was that I was reading in June of twenty. Twenty. One. The CDC's newly released report on California's failings. On the newly discovered. Corona virus coming out a China. and. So Since I'm so happy about the red. River shootout today where Oklahoma beat Texas in four overtimes. With Ninety eight total points being scored. See there's my time stamp. But someone said you should re listen to that. An audit yourself. So I did and. Because I, keep getting emails from people saying, yeah I just learned about your show from a friend of mine who sent me that January show. So anyway I thought we would re audit tonight religion to it. I get a lot of things wrong. But I think my tone is correct these last nine months since this was aired have borne out validated many things that I said. So here for your pleasure for your auditing pleasure. Here is the January twenty, twenty war the Cove Ed's broadcast for your auditing. And so you'll. You'll pardon my artistic license here that we're going in time machine a year and a half forward. To June of Twenty, twenty one and I hold before me the Centers for Disease Control's final report on the California Corona Virus Epidemic of February two thousand twenty. And we see early on in the report as we go back a year and a half that as the Chinese. Understood the virulence in the and the contagion at hand they suppressed their own people from getting information out and intern held information that would have been useful to prevent this outbreak from spreading through Asia and. Getting a foothold in the United States through of course, Los Angeles. If you if you all recall if you can remember back a year and a half ago, Garcetti was mayor. When he was still alive and we had that there was a count in late. January of two, thousand, twenty account of homeless. And it was estimated be no less than eighty thousand people. and the majority of them living in about a a ten square mile area. And so When a passenger got off a Air China aircraft who had. To squirt out of the quarantine. Wuhan. early on. A? About A week before the first case was discovered in February. Twenty. Twenty. The the passenger was incorrectly taken downtown by his Uber, ride. and. Didn't understand English not taking to the correct hotel. It was dropped off in delay downtown La and wandered. In the course of his wandering which lasted for hours was robbed several times finally picked up by LAPD taken to USC. USC Er or he had been beaten badly it was unconscious and could not answer any questions. No infection protocols were taken. Because it was a simply assume that he was an Angelina that he was just a chinese-american. When he? Finally, regained consciousness around. February third of twenty twenty. he was already feverish and was coughing and was presenting as if he had A. Viral infection. It was his blood work was quickly done. The, the the virus identified that this was a Chinese citizen who cover the US and through of wacky series of misadventures at gotten off the wrong place in other would've made a difference. It's set in all of Los Angeles. If you come in if you're a year and a half ago if you came in with Corona virus and you were taking right to Cedar Sinai and you had a sign that said have corona, virus. That would be a different deal but in this case, someone with no familiarity with L. A. was dropped off a in the midst of a population of thousands of people who are inherently unhealthy. Overwhelming numbers of drug addictions extremely Vulnerable Immune Systems And so by the time. La Patient Zero. Regained consciousness. The. USC. Emergency Room was filling up with homeless people who were presenting like they were odid. Many of them couldn't communicate what was wrong with them but they were brought into. USC. County. Because that is the primary trauma center in L. A.. And the contagion began spreading. Literally, overnight. Early on somebody at USC county called L., A. County health. About the Chinese Guy La, county health showed up, and luckily there were some people who had seen. Pandemics before and we're trained or had experienced pandemics, and they recognize remembering from back during the bird flu days in two thousand, nine that ers. Are. Epicenters for the infected. It's the quickest way infections spread is by clustering only infected people together. And that is what was happening and so emergency measures were called for. And the mayor of Los Angeles was feckless. He didn't understand how serious this was. The the county council. Hesitated to empower La County health exactly. County health needed to pull a lot of people away from feeding, homeless and sanitation all that and start. Plus ing up for a pandemic that was going to originate Los. Angeles. So the seriousness of this. Spread very quickly to L. A.. And to talk radio and this one show in particular unsettling nights on Kfi. He has that guy whoever that guy is. He disappeared summertime mountains of Wyoming, with daughter and his dogs and some chickens. But La County was strapped because they had to. It was her their new mission for La County Health was servicing the homeless but there were some in La County Department of Health is still understood that this was a threat to La county to the healthy population of La County, and so some whistle blowers talked to local media talked to the LA. Times. Talked to TV and radio and very rapidly, it got to be national news because the nation was on edge by the final week of January twenty twenty. If you all recall before the forty niners humiliating shutout in the Super Bowl, this was the top headline. When's it going to come to America there was that guy in Seattle? Well, he got healthy and he walked out. He got over it. He survived it and he barely the only spread it to a few other people who presented themselves pretty quickly to other hospitals in Seattle there was another outbreak in Dallas but it was very rapidly identified and the county and city authorities in Dallas were able to identify everyone that patient had contacted and treated them everyone of them survived. Well in Los Angeles the environment. which was the most politically correct. In the country. Was Resistant on taking the measures that any rational society should take when A. Contagion is identified. Even though L. A. County authorities were informing county officials and La city officials on what needed to be done literally. Shutting down theaters taking the playbook from nineteen. Eighteen. And Shutting Down Libraries Schools Supermarkets theaters and requesting that people stay at home. But that. Didn't work that didn't ring a bell with Mayor Garcetti. By now, this news had gotten out and president trump as you recall, was advised by his authorities that many said were reactionary and that they were racist and he hated California President Trump declared a. National Emergency and he wrote an executive order. Barring all incoming flights. And passengers from China that anybody with a Chinese passport would be held in quarantine at lax or SEO, and they would be turned around and put on planes and go back to their point of origin, but they would not be able to come into the United States. So if someone from China wanted to fly to Sydney. Australia and then. Mexico City, and then fly into the US. When they arrived with a Chinese passport, they would be turned around. The president said, this is not about race. It's about a nationality and in that nation they're doing the same thing. So of course we're going to do it. Well, you can imagine as you recall what happened Garcetti and governor newsom reflexively. Fought the president at every. Single. Measure. The president and the CDC were seeking to isolate this outbreak in the United States to La County if they could to southern California, if they could. And worst case scenario into California. Well this was the opening Gavin Newsom as you recall for he immediately jumped on a plane up to Vancouver BC. Garcetti. Came with him. They went from Vancouver to Beijing. Just because trump was spewing hate and hatred and it was a it was reminiscent of the yellow peril laws in the nineteen twenties in California when an Asian couldn't own property. So in Gavin Newsom, trying to make his point and shake hands and China with Chinese government officials, and in fact, visit Wuhan and found a way to get into a hospital visit patients to show. How tolerant Gavin Newsom was by the time, Gavin NEWSOM got back on the chartered plane that. That Ariana Huffington provided for him. Garcetti was on the Leonardo DiCaprio plane. As you recall, they had engine trouble and Garcetti never made it into. China. By the time Gavin newsom got back to Vancouver BC to catch a connecting flight back to Sacramento he was sick. and. That's why I have to invoke. Article. Five. sectioned ten of the Constitution of California, the succession power and city California you recall it all happened really really quickly the governor named the Lieutenant Governor, which none of you can name can you Eleni could've latkes remember when she was governor? At lasted what? Eight hours. Alright so the entire state government didn't get cove ed sick back in February march. There's still a lot a year ago anyway back in a second, we're auditing my January fictional broadcast of a twenty, twenty, one CDC report on California's. On the impending the looming covadonga outbreak. Background if this Kfi am six, forty, two, dark secret place live everywhere on the iheartradio. APP. Am Six forty is a dark secret place live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. It is October ten, twenty, twenty. We're going back nine months auditing, my fictional broadcast a year twenty twenty, one CD final report on how California's screwed up the covid nineteen. Let's get back to it. I think it was pretty accurate about. Predicting that the Chinese would be underselling the the virus. The Chinese are underselling the violence and the legality of this virus. They're also not even doing a good enough job of quarantining their own people. A Chinese traveller somehow made it to lax. and made it through the random screenings that were not everybody. They were just a random screenings. he did this right before president trump in the first week February declared A. Ban On all incoming Chinese citizens, not just flights originating Wuhan rainy were in China but as citizens even from Hong Kong or not going to be allowed inside the United States either at a border or at a port of entry like an airport he he was immediately opposed by Democrats but in California the governor and Mayor Era Garcetti. Loudly opposed what the president did and of course, declared at racist and to prove their point they went to. China. Gavin newsom came back in fact it. Meanwhile the patient zero, the got off the plane. was at USC county. He had a it was found out as when the guy regained consciousness. After he was found beaten in skid row. He had somehow been let off at the wrong place but his uber driver from lax. And by the time, he could communicate in a translator was with brought to talk to him. There were hundreds of infected from skid row hundreds of drug addicts who were already unhealthy. Living in close quarters filthy close quarters. Or infecting each other. So that by the time, the Guy Green gained consciousness and governance in return to California. There were hundreds of very very unhealthy people coming into. Ers? Before La County health could convince the La County Council to empower them to actually begin cordoning off skid row and screening people there. Of course, before that order was even signed, there were several county council members who got up behind a microphone and said that now we're being anti homeless by. Their civil rights so homeless began pouring forth downtown La to all every every corner of Los. Angeles. It was at this point that the real violence of the virus was discovered because within five days of this Chinese citizen being accidentally dropped skid row there were four hundred plus dead dying by the minute at in a parking lot of USC county. So many were coming in and they were dying. So quickly that it became really really obvious with the president did was probably the minimum because the Chinese as it turns out had been lying to us about the lethality the virus remember on February tenth when the Chinese government came out with a updated. After after sacking the Chinese surgeon, general, the the equivalent of the surgeon general, the new guy came up. Because the World Health Organization had declared global emergency the Chinese immediately resisted that. And then there was a disappearance of their surgeon general. The new guy got up and he said that in reality from January fifteenth to February tenth, there were sixty two thousand dead in China and that they had been underselling the lethality the virus we now knew what we had here in California when Gavin newsom return to Sacramento. He had to invoke article five section ten of the Constitution Californian hand power over to his lieutenant. Governor Eleni can lock he's. He probably should've stayed in Vancouver because as it turns out, most of his entourage had been infected as well. About a day later or the Governor Acting Governor Laney could lock had to hand power over to the president. Of, the Senate Toni Atkins but she couldn't find him because he was in San Francisco General and he was positive with this corona virus as well. So the speaker of the Assembly Anthony Rend on disappeared no one could find him he later. Resurfaced in Denver. With family. The. Secretary of State Alex Padilla took over for about a week until he was sick handing everything over to the Attorney General Xavier Becerra. A Nice as I'm sorry that's so twenty years ago. That's what used to. Have your. Sarah. Immediately. declared. Disaster the state of California in trying to invoke a federal assistance federal aid. And a state of emergency. In also invoking the California Constitution the Governor Sarah named. In accordance with section ten Article Five of the California. Constitution, he named a list of four to seven people. Subject to confirmation by the Senate to act as governor in case of war or enemy caused disaster little. Would he know that twenty years later it we would be looking at the state of California with a new governor by the name of. Of. Villanueva former sheriff Los Angeles. County. So we'll take you back to February of twenty twenty. When we come back this is fictional by the way. This, this this is me acting like I'm reading a CDC report from July of Twenty. Twenty one I'm not having to stretch the truth too much though so far AM I. Back in the second with more of my fictional January twenty twenty broadcasts. Is Still. Fiction It is a dark secret place. Kfi Am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. If I am six forty. It is a dark secret place live everywhere on the iheartradio APP. It is October ten twenty twenty and we're auditing January twenty twenty fictional war, the world scenario where I'm reading a year twenty, twenty one. CDC Final Report on the covert outbreak in California specifically in Los. Angeles. So here here is my nightmare scenario this. This was my worst case. We'll see how I did. This was nine months ago back in January when I first started thinking what's the worst that can happen based on my knowledge of one thousand nine, hundred, ninety, nine, hundred, nineteen all right take it away me. So just to to catch you up the county of La. The city of La in the state, of California. resisted. The federal government's emergency declarations and acceptance of the declaration. Of Emergency. governor newsom from his hospital bed by the way. But the the measures to restrict the California outbreak of the Chinese Corona virus. We're resisted even though health authorities in La recognized early on what was going on. And recognize that the vector that we had to fear. The most was as large unhealthy population in downtown. La Living Filthy lives. And until the death toll reached over four hundred in the first week of February and the parking lot of USC county medical. that it was not taken seriously until then and that. Came on the heels of the Chinese admitting the actually had well over sixty two, thousand deaths in China at the time that they were saying, there was only fifty eight. So it turns out the president trump was correct in signing emergency order banning Chinese citizens, not their airplanes but Chinese, citizens coming into the United States from anywhere from any point of origin. So because of the line of succession. After Governor newsome returned from China from a handshaking tour already infected. Most of the line of succession was infected. And invoking the California Constitution Governor, Heavier Sarah who fifth on the line named a panel of people to be approved by the Senate to be emergency governor in case of war because disaster. So declaring this an enemy disaster. Sheriff Alex Villanueva or or Villanueva of La County was named Governor of California. He also continued to resist the president's measures, but under his authority as governor of the State of California. Governor via Nueva. Invoked United, States Code, title thirty two and he activated for state active duty the California Army National Guard, and Air National. Guard. And began very quietly a program of cordoning off Los Angeles. And placing National Guard forces at Gorman on top of the grapevine I five. On highway fourteen. Just, north of the one, hundred, eight, freeway. On one at Cameo and then on Pch at Oxnard, effectively creating a northern coordin- preventing. La Residents. From leaving the area now, quarantine camps were set up at historic. Port Y NIIMI. And in Mojave. In Kern County and as as well as in Lancaster and Palmdale. And that if you if you screened. And that you were. Not showing symptoms you went into these FEMA camps of they set up in the Antelope Valley at Gorman down in grapevine etc. in the south at home passive fifteen similar camps were set up thousands of Angelenos began driving there so much so that the Highway fifteen was clogged the I five was a parking lot because people were walking away from their cars and walking up to Santa Rita From from Kostanic back to sill mar the, you couldn't move if you didn't make your move in the first two days after the declaration, you can get up there. So now people were walking miles and miles and miles through Santa Clarita. Up Past Uphill to the grapevine in many cases, they were already infected. The dead littered. I. Five One oh, one, pch, the fifteen. By now, as you recall, it was mid February. And the infection was now spread of course into the valley. Down into Orange County. And the President federalized the California National Guard, and then augmented the regular army and the Marine Corps from Camp Pendleton to assist the Marine Corps blocked I five. At bats alone at the exit there bass alone. And they began a quarantine camps on Camp Pendleton. and and point. South. And it was at this point that the cordoning of the most sick population in downtown. La. Where the lethal rate amongst the eighty thousand homeless in Los. Angeles was nearly fifty percent and the rest of the population it was less than five percent. But amongst. LA's homeless who are already weakened with weakened immune systems the lethality rate was. Called the heard in fifty percent by fifty percent. That's how virulent it was so now. According to the report by February Twentieth Two Thousand and twenty there were some eighteen thousand dead. And this presented the problem because La County. Have a plan to take care of. That many debt even with. Hundreds of years of warning about potential earthquakes La County still didn't have a plan to take care of that many casualties. And so that brought up new problems. Like. Typhoid. And other infections that happen win bodies go unintended as they did because this this was the other thing that happened is you've recalled. County workers started calling the started refusing to do their jobs and did not go into downtown La Downtown La was like Zombie, land nobody would go down there. LAPD reported a fifty percent absenteeism. Officers were not showing up deputies weren't showing up and the National Guard was forced to go down and stop looting which became widespread very widespread. As people went into downtown La they also got infected and the disease almost built its own momentum at that point. Okay Okay Okay pretty walking dead alright. and. That didn't come to fruition so far that I get to say that forever though, right all right. We'll continue auditing nine months ago. My January predictions for how California would respond to the covid nineteen outbreak that was looming looming I. Say back in January. So I am to be forgiven for that but back in the second, it's dark secret place. Bryan suits here till eleven Kfi am six forty live everywhere on the iheartradio, APP? AM, six forty is dark secret place Bryan suits in here one more time. Live or where the IRA auditing it my January war, the world's after the COVID. Fictional CDC twenty twenty one report about how California failed. To mitigate the deadly covid nineteen outbreak. And I think it bring it home here. Will will do some math here at the end but but I I stand by this segment. You be the Judge Auditing what I said nine months ago in what turns out to be the first bit of covid nineteen fiction than anyone can find and it was a radio scenario here on dark secret place also. So again, let's go back in time and listen. That I'm sitting here July of two thousand and twenty one and I'm reading the final report from the Centers for disease. Control about the February two. Thousand Twenty. California Krona virus epidemic that Killed Approximately, thirty thousand people in nearly two months and the The origin was a patient who squeaked through because not everyone as it turns out lax wasn't testing everyone who originated in Wuhan in late January and one patient who didn't present with fever anyway was accidentally dropped off in downtown La, by his Uber. Was Robbed and beaten and the process by the way infected several dozen people. who were already unhealthy do addiction and living on the streets and and all that happened very rapidly. And the calls for Quarantine and restrictions shutting the theaters. The whole thing just like in nineteen eighteen, they met with a lot of resistance but back in one thousand, nine hundred and it was pretty obvious pretty quickly and it was nationally obvious that these were measures that had to be taken. If, you recall we were the place where it started no one how serious it was because the Chinese had been lying. So instead of going ugly early like Tito did in Yugoslavia nineteen seventy-two. We lawyer up, we worried about people, civil rights and the whole thing. And in it cost many many thousands of lives. Contrast. That? With, what happened in San? Francisco in February March April May of two thousand, twenty mayor London breed. Though mocked for her city becoming a cesspool her wants beautiful city acted very very rapidly when the news started coming out of La County San Francisco authorities contacted L. County Thirties early on and talk to people who were honest and they said we don't have a handle on this. This is lethal especially amongst the sick that we're tolerating on our streets you gotta do heroic measures right now you gotta go up early. So mayor London breed in San Francisco took a page from San Francisco Zone history from one hundred years ago. When Yearbook Buena Island before there was a Oakland Avenue Bridge. A Bay. A, Bay Bridge. I'm before there was a golden gate bridge. There was just the island in the middle of the bay and the Navy commanded the naval? Base Navy, commander when the when the Spanish flu came to San Francisco, he stopped allowing people on the island. He wouldn't let people leave if they want to leave they will. They couldn't they were in the navy. But food water and other supplies were brought to a barge. And then the boat went back to the bay and no one came on the island result was there were zero deaths on. Wayne Island. So mayor London breed was given that information. And she ordered San Francisco PD to shut down the Bay Bridge physically put a barrier on the bridge and prevent people from coming into San Francisco. And then stepping onto the Golden Gate Bridge, which is federal property. But Luckily, the federal government was onboard and they set a roadblock on the Golden Gate Bridge Southern San Francisco was different deal, and this is where the California Army National Guard and SF PD were able to to set up cords and not let people in four months later in San. Francisco. Amongst their sick homeless addicted population had sixty debt. Not. Four. And part of the reason was because she set up. Hospitals for the confirmed sick and then quarantines far away for people suspected of being sick. And so they were able to screen. Out of all places where something like this happened The most liberal town in America is the one that surrendered civil rights more quickly than anyone else and for that they survived. But in Los Angeles or the wealthy don't get vaccinated, don't vaccinate their kids. The. lethally rate amongst the wealthy. was in the thirty percent. In the Hollywood hills saying Monica in Brentwood. It was as if. It was a plague Egypt. And then the fact that the very wealthy couldn't leave la no matter how much money they had calling all of the politicians that they had bankrolled finding out that Santa you can get on a boat and Peter can get on a boat in Santa, Monica, because the Coast Guard was out there enforcing the quarantine and they could drive up pch H and have a lunch at Nobu but when they got to Oxnard. The Army National Guard was there and turning turn them around. If they didn't have symptoms they could go into a quarantine camp at port. Wine Amy. And that was a minimum of five days. They didn't like that either Do you all remember that picture of Gwyneth Paltrow on on a new? York Times, ordering a sweaty tank top. Standing in line with a paper tray for for OATMEAL. And not not quite the days of Goop A. So San Francisco had minimal damage compared to Los Angeles Los. Angeles was set up for what happened to it by tolerating. A. Incredibly. uncleaned situation on its own city streets when the infection which. Predictably was far worse than the communist authorities had told us when it leaked out in the form of a single patient who ironically by the way. Survived. Because he was treated quickly at USC county. He got over his flu infected hundreds, thousands died thousand the as I say thousands of homeless died. Total. Thirty eight thousand La County residents died because they wouldn't listen to common sense stay in their homes. That guy lived he survived and he never paid his bill at USC county and he left the left the country or you might live riverside. We'll. We'll never know because well, he overstayed his visa, we just don't know. As I say, there is no July twenty twenty one's CDC Final Report on the Corona Virus California epidemic of February twenty twenty because it's not February twenty twenty yet. And it certainly is in July of two, thousand, twenty one. But as I say as I thought about this today. I realized you don't really have to stretch the truth that far for this scenario to fall into place. Okay for the record I said thirty eight thousand in two. Months. Late, July August September turned out to be the peak so far the deadliest part for the record were at sixteen, thousand, seven, hundred and nine months covid nineteen turned out to not be as deadly as we thought it would be initially after looking at what was happening Wuhan We'll probably never know what the real death ray wasn't Wuhan, but we do know that the virus probably got here on the west coast before it was publicly acknowledged by the Chinese probably in December when Chinese students began returning for the January first winter quarter or semester eighty, thousand Chinese students were returned as opposed to the end of January when Chinese New Year. Ended and the Chinese continued to allow people to fly out of Wuhan and directly into Italy. Now, I didn't know that on January twenty fifth what now? So that explains the the violence of the European outbreak. But So ultimately, it may be that we're not even counting cases that happened in late. November and December so anyway I'll stand by that I was off on the time period and the deaths but otherwise you tell me Brian. Suits at IHEARTMEDIA DOT com. Or find me on twitter a dark secret place and you. You tell me whether I was way off or if there was a a grain of truth that. All right, thank you very much.

Just got a brand new tesla and then I was talking to my buddy who can't afford a car and it occurred to me. The perfect rich man poor man zero zero emissions. Good one you can leave us a message at eight eight eight six three four one seven four four Goodwin. The J. Miller in studio braying fries tonight through Sunday. And we'll talk about this new movie coming out as well of course deadpool cloverfield L. crashing silicon valley so many great Projects good see again my friend very fortunate. Good to see you guys also and I might want to jump right into 'cause you just did the cooking section so comics are selling merge on the road and I was selling this fake hip hop pop folk album that I did a long time time ago and as a CD which I thought was really funny because I I would say on stage and I don't know how you would play this. I have no idea who still has a CD player player. But I kind of got tired of that and so I thought well it'd be really funny to sell and then I realized that I had become friends through this. This weird voice. Everything that I did with Doug Glen and his family the Lens who live in Central Indiana and they have a hot sauce. Company called the SCOVILLE brothers and so. I've I collaborated with him for a year and came up with my proprietary hot sauce. Is that where the SCO volt volt scale comes from or different than they've named it after the SCOVILLE scale and so we've got we've got the extreme gangster heat we've God TJ's Choice Aaa We have a diet hot sauce over there which is the same as the Chippewa because know hot. Sauces have any calories at all and then aw the fucking intense goes pepper type shit with me on the label saying Fuck Shit. Yeah and that's something I can see on most radio program to promote it. It is hard to promote. So yeah if you guys want to throw a little bit of this more I can always give you seconds. I loved to so it was fun because I worked with them and I I really liked what they were doing with AAA but I wanted to be a little hotter because police sauces in ever really hot enough. Yeah Merv smokey things just like a sauce and then then I wanted something that was sort of in between so we worked on finding something that was like Tabasco gave a shit anymore. Yeah so that's the extreme gangster. He and then the fucking intense goes pepper type. Shit is just. That's for the people who that's what they're about but my feeling with that was because I'm I love of hot sauce. I'm very very passionate about it. And I felt like sauces and you did hot ones right. Yeah and so I didn't I didn't hot ones. And I felt like the last four. Four hot sauces. Were just too hot as it didn't matter what the flavor was actually like their hot sauce but so I I wanted to do goes pepper sauce. That was really hot but had some flavor to it and that you could use sparingly and have a lot of heat but still get the flavor and then if you wanna just go fucking crazy and and burn the inside of your body then you can really slather it on so I I wanted to kind of do something for everyone. And that's nice at the show because what I do is after the show just with the VIP people actual say. Let's find out your your flavor profile and I'll recommend what the best hot sauce My thing let me sign your titties. Take a polaroid but I take him just the tests. You know what I mean. What how did she do on hot ones? And and when did you did you find it uncomfortable. It was it was a while ago but I got all the way through. I got to the end but I was standing up and sweating reading and needing to walk around it was it was pretty intense because those last couple are just hot. You know and by the last one can't even feel your mouth you got to. You don't have pardon the PUN intestinal fortitude. Dj Khallid Really. Quick Cherry quit dangerous. Here's another one another. What's bad for all my fans? Just because you give up doesn't mean you quit crying quietly. My favorite part of that whole exchange of the one is out another one the the host said he's like DJ tastes. Such a pump is ask. Are you eating what I'm eating. It's like Yes Sean Evans. When shadows like yeah? We're eating the same thing and he's like you are and sounds like you wanNA switch plates in. DJ cavs like yeah. Okay Yeah I do like what Papa Sas. It's also like a scene from princess bride. He's gotTa believe that. Switch them so I know and then he didn't even get through them. I really nights that Louisiana style. That one right there. The pain is good balance. Good good flavor but he I made it all the way through and they were joking the DJ Calvin but my hi favourite one of somebody them he just wasn't able to complete the task and he didn't quit goes away task. Could I want to try. What do I do? You want me to try. I still in order of heat served the AAA Antonio Thank you. Guys have a little bit of food food. I would love to also people get angry when I eat into the Mike and so a work this out much album Alpin this give it time. My favorite my favorite. How one my favorite guest who made it through is Neil degrasse Tyson? Did you see that. Oh did we see now. My God like cultural advantage air with something I think I think astrophysicist of some sort of propensity depends evert because he just did the whole interview talking about the universe and only with one of them did he sort of touch touch in with. That's it all the time you just as even kill. It's pretty amazing. How did you feel the next day on the way out? You know people. Yeah but then what happens the next morning. When you're on the pot I was okay? I like hot sauce and I eat a lot of it so that was And this is the intense so so go easy on that one. Otherwise you gotTA program. Do you have an automobile related topic to bring up or challenge. Well do do you have a two thousand seventeen Ford Gt. No I do not care my father and I do okay and so we did the whole rigmarole. Where we you will applied for the car? Right and Yeah seat Atom Lakes fight on my website if you want to order at To come right into your house yeah very smoky but got some zest for a little bit to kick off all on. Let me let me hate my dad more than I already do. Okay Yeah I mean me and my fucking dad wouldn't go in on a hamster cage fucking imagine going in with my dad on a two thousand four. Gt and yes you must put together a little manifesto on why you deserve to own that to include video. I mean it was that involved and a and I got some people to do. Because here's the thing. I've never really hated my dad but I've come up short on a lot of things in his book so I don't You know he always wanted me to be a better athlete than I was. The only thing we really connected on was Film was like watching movies all the time. You showed me the thin man series of the father. And he's he says he's a recovering litigator but he was a lawyer and then is now an expert witness so the law. He's he's a lawyer. And where do you guys hail from Denver Colorado. Okay so did. Your Dad had thoughts about what you're going to to do after high school. Yeah I think he also wondered if maybe thank you. I think he wondered if maybe I'll take the Diet one not like he didn't have entrain starring in a live action Yogi bear. Yeah I think that he dreamed that I think that he was more interested interested. He was okay with whatever I did but I think that he wanted me to do something a little bit less risky than comedy right But he's really funny guy and so we also connected on with cars. I don't know every single thing about every model and when the tail lights were changed on the Ford you know there's this different from the fifty seven fifty but I did love racing and so he took me to bond ran school racing which I don't know if you've done that but it is real fun I've done I've done. I did a racing school four years in a row. Either maybe five. I can't remember but yeah I've done a live done racing schools where there's a bunch of different and so he took me to bond or really early on when I was sixteen or seventeen and I just loved it and I understood the in some ways. It's weird it's kind of like comedy. Just have to be so focused every moment. The if you make mistake there's going to be real repercussions so we serve to connect on that five. GT He took you from Denver to Phoenix. Yeah Okay now I hit my dad and boarded boarded an airplane driving school together when you're in high school and so it was. It was so great and such a good experience and I understood intercity so much that he started taking on these fall foliage tours because he was part of the Porsche club part of the club but he was always is interested in he was really smart. Thing I'm a little like this with watches. But he was really smart about buying a car that he could flip like. He had a portion nine eleven. Turbo S uh-huh and so that he ended up using to by the two thousand Seventeen Ford gt but he got an five gt and he always drives these cars that he doesn't have a garage. Audrey keeps them saying he's got one ours that he that he really likes drive and that was part of the application in the twenty th seventeen Ford GT application. You had to eh prove that you drove the cars just garage them. You had to prove that you do use them for charity work which we did every fall foliage tour. We'd go to small towns in do kind of auction stuff and you will drive around in the mountains and so we raise money for a lot of places in Colorado and then you had to have used to do a video for why it was important to you and I had some friends in Denver. Help edit something together for him showing all those things. But then you also needed a social media following And my father doesn't even have a website. Finally my son can help. Oh he's exactly so he said was there any way that you can You know if we can co apply or something like that or you apply and I actually one one of my agents a great guys Christian Carino. He's really good friends with somebody at Ford and I was able to have a conversation on the phone with that person. INSERTIVE insertive layout and even more. This was such an important moment for me to say this is why I have felt like. I live in my father's shadow at times. This is how rarely we connected but we do connect on and you had to be afford family. I learned to drive in a Ford Explorer. The first car that I bought was a Ford focus he had this Ford. Gt Two thousand doesn't five so we actually were afford family. And I said you know said this would be the most important thing that I could do for my father and he said look. I'm not involved in it but I'll put in a good word and when the application we waited and waited and waited and we both applied and he was rejected and I got the car and so he he paid for and now both our names are on the title. But it's been two years because I think you guys all the John Cena stuff it. We got the thirty six car off off the line and so we were thirty six in line to be able to sell the car and now they've doubled in value triple in value so they've almost become too expensive expensive to drive. And so we're we're going to sell it and Adam. I think you should be the first person I or opportune. Yeah well it's an opportunity. Let's to acquire. It is previously owned a couple of things the twenty four hour war my the documentary about Ford versus Ferrari at llamas out on Netflix today. So check that out Christian unveil film. That's coming out with some more people are aware of that better. I'm I'm trying to think now. I'd like to drill down on this like I. Fish the big deal. Oh for these cars is sorta color combos. What did you get in a heritage color educated heritage? But here's what we have now. Five with the white and the blue racing stripes. That's that's American racing shelby. And then the two thousand seventeen is blue with white stripes so there in verse twins and now what I know about about this market is there's they they stickered for anywhere between like five fifteen maybe could get them up to like six seventy five or something like that. I mean it's base. Price was four hundred thousand. I was it for. Yeah but what you guys got it up to. It was more than half a million okay. But it's now worth twice that more than twice that yes so now the there'd been a couple that have changed hands John Cena's one. I think one went for like one seven but it may have been some charity involved. It was a charity auction. Because we've been following this and it is a so there's charity component but also it only had eight miles on it so interesting thing. I wanted to know talking about this. As do you like to keep your cars at Super Low. Mileage do you like to get them out there. Ours is less than five thousand miles. It's not but we drove. I drove it on the track and that was really incredible because the car. It's crazy you can take it to attract mode against this goes down right and they really moves and you can can go. Kanai did well one point. We did like two hundred fifteen and the card is not feel realize where were you. Whoa we were? We were on a racetrack in Denver. Colorado at the stables and raise drought. Let's have a long straightaway that way. But I was carrying in a lot of speed into the I would sort of you can carry them speed. I was carrying either sixty or seventy maybe eighty miles into the straight away. Yeah and so then I really was able to put it goes it gets there that fast and part of that is you. Don't use off of it because it's not going like this one hundred fifty miles an hour. It's just right. Yeah yeah well. The Arrow pushes it down. There makes it that much more stable that speed all right. There's a couple of these cars coming up up for sale in the next few months Miller voice that much that much that much I know and I don't know you you know now. Here's an interesting. So here's an interesting thought over five. Version your dad bought new those were like one fifty one fifty five five somewhere in that range. Those are like two seventy five to three twenty five now they they basically just doubled. They spiked a little. They flattened out over the last few years. But they've essentially double but then they kind of stopped and so the fives they got up to double more close to double you know fairly consistently but for the last four or five years. They've just been kind of flat. So the question on something like this is obviously you buy it from Ford and you buy it for five fifty fifty awesome. You sell it for one point two good for you but then the person who buys it from one to go to four or do we stay at one two for a while because your dad's Oh five has been around three for being a stay the other thing that he said was you know the more you drive it the less plus it's GONNA lose value but it's not going to lose a lot. He said to me look in ten twenty years. This car is worth. I think a lot of money but I'm not necessarily we're GONNA be around for that but if we do this you're talking about himself or you right. I think he it was sort of the Miller. Boy You know he he said you know he's I'm seventy five you we don't. We don't have to sell a car if you don't want to. But I knew that he had been so passionate about getting this car because he knew that it was going to double in value. He knew even more and so. That's kind of a nest egg for him to retire so I realize was was when he said he wanted to sell it. I felt really bad but then we explain it more. I felt like maybe it wasn't the car that I needed to get him. But the ability to flip this car and then kind of make his way peacefully into retirement. So if you'll buy I can finally I'll tell you what I'll love your dad. You know what I mean. My Dad's ads already living in the shadow of your dad's so virtually this conversation. Yes by virtue of the conversation. I think the thing that I would do if I could. And there were these these two cars. I would get into financial position to do this but I would get the Oh five and the two thousand seventeen because they're kind of twin second vertical takeoff vertical wine tasting. DIFFERENT YEARS TO I. Five is really fun to drive. It's almost more fun because it's more muscle than race car. A little more visceral Sir all seen as he sold his and make him for one point so he said shows a couple coming up. You know 'cause you what you look for comps CBS. And that's kind of the price and you can take them to auction but if you take him to auction you gotta pay the big and the person that's buying it has it has to pay the vague to in their backing that out right so if you say this car is worth one point five million alien dollars and you're paying a ten percent premium as a bidder when you get to one three five stop because at it in and you'll get to You'RE GONNA end up paying. You'll get two one five so the person who's selling the car that's worth one five gets one three five because the person stop because that Element of that. If it's an we have a representative who's GonNa take five percent but not from you from us right a finders unders fee finding that person spying but first refusal from you. I what what is the asking price. But I think he's looking for what you said ADV which is one point two. You would hope that it would be one five But we're directly selling. It was the thirty six off the line. So the hundredth breath car is not going to be available for another. How many months or years you know? I think one two is a bargain for that car. My my thing is all the cars I have a race cars and specifically mostly specifically newman race cars. So what I'm hearing is. It's time to I fuck and race car. You get in this thing and it will give you some kind of erection. I can promise it'll be a good one but it is really. It's really something that I couldn't believe it. I've never driven anything like it and I'll never drive anything like it again to fifteen is in insanely fast and AH street going automobile. Unfortunately I will buy the hot sauce. Hold on Yeah did you let whoever here and the hot sauce is going for one point too good to know now. TJ wants to move the scar. You got the negotiating. Power here two words deadpool. Three the pool three. Oh I need a role the need it. Yeah I mean I need far back or three a barbeque would be great. Then we get to work together intimately perfect. Yeah you do have the leverage on that one Steven Spielberg's next film when you walk on what's going on with deadpool threes in the Werner. They don't have they're doing x force so dead pool the character and cable I think and some the other characters went in there in x force and there's just now so many characters in that world there was kind of really room for me needed do X. for us and so because they're doing exports. They haven't decided if they wanted to deadpool. Three and to be honest I'd rather I almost would rather that they didn't and here's why because the hangover to a lot of fun the hangover three felt like a cash. Grab and it's sort of. Actually Seinfeld. Seinfeld was tie in between two FERNS. He was joking about this. which is do you think that that the hangover three kind of ruined that franchise that you had this movie? That was one of the funniest movies of all time. But then when you did two and three it kind of became you know. There's no caddyshack three his point. And and I think deadpool two we knocked out of the park ended up being great fun and I was worried about that. Would've deadpool three is doesn't live up and Dan you just kind of look at the whole thing and that's the one. I remember the hangover and I love that movie but I also remember. Hang over three and that was not a good movie in my hyphen. Yeah and IT IS A. It's one of those things that's kind of sometimes when an athlete hangs on too long and you just know you know from the last couple of seasons seasons where they weren't good and that's kind of your memory of them who three is Michael Jordan. Playing baseball that's right. It could very well be was sir. Yes sorry that's what I was gonna say but I know I also like I've been very fortunate now too because people love these franchises. I mean I hear that a lot. What's going going on deadpool? Three we want more dead pool and so I think they should be given that for sure so I love being a part of those types of things as franchises is but I'm much more interested in doing original properties which is what underwater is the kristen sewer and I did this coming January tenth and that's set thriller. I don't care about like my acting I don't want to tell people I can McCain also a dramatic actress new drama. That's not important but I do like being the funny character in a different type of film like ready player one which was sort of an epic Steven Spielberg Blockbuster. So underwater and projects projects like that. I get really excited about. Of course they want me to do deadpool three. I'm going to contact you. Know I'm going to flip the script and I don't know why that made me think but it years ago when I was doing dancing with the stars and we're sitting in a limousine and there's two separate limos and we're taking them to Oprah's studio look unveil the cast dancing with the stars and I was sitting in one was back when it was not what it is now very large. It was a little embarrassing arcing but not under hangover. So we're driving there and I've made this joke while I said like everyone's like who's going to win. WHO's GonNa win this thing and it's like Kristi Yamaguchi's GonNa win this? She was in the other Limo. I was like she's GonNa win. Of course he's going to win. An Olympic Calvert ice dancer Sir wouldn't why wouldn't athlete to dance floor. Non Ice will end up doing well and they said and then people like chimed in. And they're like well she's used to dancing on ice. This hardwood thing. You can juggle on carpet but could lead. You could do it on a UNICYCLE. But could you juggle on carpet. It's like Yes yes if I could juggle on a UNICYCLE I could definitely do it on a carpet I would be better sadder Kristi Yamaguchi's GonNa win this Bech and then I should put this one shot. We've got one shot here people and everyone like leaned in and and I said she's Japanese and those people are notoriously. Lazy looked to me like worse and then they all laughed and I said you're all racist for laughing driven shares. She beat the shit out of everybody. She was the only one I've ever seen. It was actually better than her. She was better in your partner together so I knew I knew that was going on. I mean you you know you're talking about Juggling also at the BRA AH show. You'll see what I'm doing now. Because I've been touring for two years and I've done every single weekend except for the last month and a half I went to. ooh It's hot isn't it is riveted here but this little conversation love. It is excellent so much I I had thought that I needed to that. I will finish when you're when you're done with it. What I what I screwed up my thought which is TJ doing dramatic acting and and underwater? I saw an extended trailer of it. Looks Great I love it see. The facts are amazing amazingly and they're always do the same it was like well. He's a comedic guy a bit. Can he do the dramatic stuff. You know what it should be asked the other way around. The comedic guys can do the dramatic stuff. It's easy for them. It Ray Romano slides right into the dramatic. That's no problem because it's harder. The real question is candidate guys do the cavity not the other way round. How many how many times? They can't really. I'm infeasible does the pacifier that's doesn't quite fit. We've been surprised that like all the comedic actor it is so great niche medic role and yet. We're never surprised whenever over expressed the same surprise on the dramatic actor bombs in the community. That's the Charlie Chaplin quote from from. How many millions? Of years ago. Anyone can make them cry. It takes a genius to make them laugh and yet we've ignored that. For how many decades right so so I had to taste us around but under waters name of that movie. That's January tenth and yeah yeah we're excited about it. It's GonNa be great and I've also because I've been touring every single weekend for basically two years took a break to go kate. My wife is a sort of amazing installation artist and internationally known Associated Festival in France there and that was weird. Because I know you've taken breaks aches from doing standup but five. Weeks is the longest amount of time I've ever gone without performing and I did do one show in Paris and that was really successful but I had to slow down my timing. Because they don't spe- they they understand English more than they speak it but it was really funny. I was kind of having to make the jokes folks like this and you know I was also acting things out is really what I was like. Do you ever wake up. Wake Real Rio. That didn't feel like a real show really but outside of that I've been doing every weekend and that sort of fun to talk about underwater and every media for stand up. You know I get to say to people like this is going to be a different type of film this. That's something that I think is really fun because because people are kind of like well. What is the next film project? What's the next but what I wanted to ask you? What's the longest you've gone without doing Santa doing more now? I just did the temblor brewing company company. And you had done something there. Yeah Twenty. Five years I'd gone long long many many years. I'd never gone any time period without talking on the radio for two hours a night or four hours of morning or whatever so I was like a guy who was going to the gym but not playing a sport you know. I was like in shape for thinking and talking but I wasn't in Dandong Winter. I wasn't like standup shape. I've just always kind of lean and mean because I always just just had a job where there was no commercials are this couple commercials. But there's no songs are breaks or anything it was just like talk and then this year and then I I started do. I did a lot of colleges with Dr drew back in the day but that wasn't really stand up but started kind of turn into a little bit of a stand up thing and and then I started going out on my own. That was sort of a one man show and then this year I really started focusing on like straight stand up so my my new New Year's resolution was to just go out and do stand up which I think is great because people want to see you do that. Medium of comedy also I guess then the question should have been what's long gone without being on the radio or in front of a microphone in this sort of eighteen minutes. I I fourteen minutes I went from you know doing this apple started definitely does I. Yeah so I got into it on Kevin and being you know twenty five years ago I was like once a week twice a week. You know all that kind of stuff but since I got my first job on love line I guess that that would have been ninety. Six Ninety five ninety six somewhere in there so they got that first job week or two of occasion is probably the longest strand. Yeah that went straight through Oh to doing mornings. There was a little hiatus between that and mornings starting do remember that I. I don't know it's four weeks five weeks weight we liked. 'cause I remember when you were leaving Maybe CBS radio when you're leaving. Sort of terrestrial surreal. You went right into the podcast right. Yeah the first people that said. I'm done here but I am now going to on Monday. Be Right here doing doing the same thing when I meet him. My thought on it at the time since todd podcasting it really there was no business model or anything. I wasn't thinking about it. I I re- I had realized being a real fan of radio and talk radio and that I felt like I used talk. Radio's like my comfort. Animal My support dog. You know when I when I work construction. What I didn't know is that I was a talker and a listener and I wanted to exchange ideas ideas and I'd get these lonely jobs or it's like they'd go? There's your scraper there's the tile goes and the guy just like leaves you spend the whole day like scraping tile how floor and I'd start kind of climbing the walls because that's like I wanNA talk. I Wanna I wanna hear ideas I want. You know so I then start bringing little it'll am radio and just listening to whoever would talk just like you turn the radio on when you leave your dog in a cage. So they think there's somebody that keep them company so I started to realize that as these people started leaving the air or retiring or so once in a while someone would die or something I I felt a loss like I felt like I'm GonNa Miss My friend. Where's my friend you know and so my thought was my friend? My friend yet. David Visca the the psychologist on KABC list. I've listened to Dr Ruth I've listened to the the Bible answer man. I listen to anybody who was on the radio and so I just said everyone on Friday when I signed off. I said you know most of you are not going to hear me broadcast anymore for those of you. Who Don't want to break this connection and I feel like it is a loss and I? I've been on the losing end of that a few times like for those who feel that way you may hear me for an hour a day or whatever it is I will still be there. You have to go to your computer. Put It on your whatever but I shall be. There are for those who want the sound of my voice. Doesn't explain to people like how the Russian find me right so that was really the lofty goal that we just kept. HEP This connection for the small group. That may want to go go there with me but that is so fascinating to me. Because it was both brilliant in terms of its press about the future of podcasting if hearing radio from a different medium but the impetus behind it was exactly what you just said was. This is because because I felt loss when somebody doesn't do this and so I don't want you guys feel that so I'll be here even if you're not but for those you WanNa come and that was a big part of leaving. Silicon Valley was. I just felt like I was doing a season of television and it was great and people loved it but would I felt a loss serve. was that live connection of doing stand up and the audience is right there and when I talk about in my show now a lot is you know I wanted wanted to do this. I I'd done a lot of great work on. Silicon Valley will say and I was really lucky to work with my judge and Clay Tarver carver. Jamie Baba I just did a movie with and so you know I learned so much there but I really really really really love being in front of an audience and I say to them. I say you know. We're sharing a singular experience. I will never perform this. You'll no one else will ever see this exact show and I will never perform for this exact Zac audience so this is a singular experience with just us. I say not with me not with you guys with us and people really appreciate that and it makes them think yeah live. Entertainment is better than sitting in front of a screen and binge-watching because streaming it's kind of drug and people inviting people binge-watch they have a new feeling than ever had which is finish binge watching something and you have the sense of accomplishment. But you also know that you've kind of wasted your life and your in withdrawals again. Yeah and so you kinda ended and you're like oh I could have learned another language and you do you watch one and then another then another. And then you're finished the season when you're upset for seven months exactly so I felt like streaming was headed in a direction where people were gonNA get screened fatigue. Which I think they have a little bit and podcasting is now exploded and because you know people love radio I think the same reason you loved it and I think stand up in live entertainment in general I know this that music and comedy and all those things? That's all gone up. That's I'm seeing my numbers. Go up up up because I think people can feel that they're like I wanna go see the thing. We'll tell me. Tell me how you would answer this question so you know yes. It's a great hot sauce. It's reasonable price. I think my west of I think what people say to me. Oh you do a podcast or you make a dock or you're in doctor you write a book or you do a movie or something. What do you want to do like? Hey I I was like what he wanted. What where do you really want to do and I go? I just want to take my idea and I wanna put it in your head so I don't really care if it's on stage ager throw a microphone or in a documentaries WanNa take my idea and convey it to you and I don't know if you have a general feeling about that. I heard that all the time. That's in every single interview that I do on Radio all-time morning television whatever. It's you know you do film you do television. You do voice over in and children's animation and you do stand up comedy we you know which of those is your favorite which is which is really dumb question because very dumb question Russian and I would always answer for me. It's all just different meeting. It's all comedy it's all I care about is that I'm making a laugh in whatever medium that can reach you. That's great films amazing because hundreds of millions of people see it If I do a commercial and it's funny then that's thirty seconds where you're laughing if I do my podcast cashing in with TJ Miller podcast we have serve as a really strong colt falling. So I like making you laugh but that that is actually something so two things on that. I have found that my podcast people are much. Because I'm talking about me. And my life and Kate and cash levies talking about his wife and his kids people really connect to that because they know you better. You've become their friend right right so we say we have twelve and a half listeners. But the army of listeners call themselves the twelve and a half and they'll show up to the show's really excited about it and I think that I sort of do that or a version version of that with stand up. I'm there for an hour. I'm GonNa talk about me but I'm GonNa talk about things that I think are funny. I'm GonNa Juggle Terrible Ventriloquist them I'm going to do you all those things. But you're really going to get to know me more than when I play a character so I have found that actually for me right now stand up is really interesting and yeah I think it's my favorite thing but also remember. I was acting in Hollywood doing very little stand up as much as I could constantly. You know I was doing acting in for ten years and now finally I'm doing just stand up and I was doing stand up during Silicon Valley. We'd finished working fourteen hour day. The guys would go home. They get ready for the next day. They read the scripts for the table. Read I would just go do Santa and I do not one show but I do to show so I'd be out until one in the morning doing shows and then come back and have a five. Am Call So. I was still really focused on the stand up but I wasn't able to give it as much attention they can now so now. I'm seeing the level that I can take it too because you to work for every weekend for a year you really see a different kind of tightness it notice to stand up and so I like that I also like that. There's no one in between me and the audience again just and I think that's the same here. Yeah there's there's production you guys is produced the show but you can say whatever the fuck you on well and that's the same with state and I feel like stand up. It feels like everyone like in a world where we in a world of show business where you don't have a four one K.. Or retirement plan or anything. It's not like you talk to insurance crazy when you talk to firemen you'll talk to guy. I talked to guy so forty nine years old. I got retire next year. How I retired this? She are only get eighty percent of my salary for the rest of my life but if I wait eighteen months then I'll get full salary and I'm like you're young dude like okay but that only five years. Here's the deal you make in show business and I think stand up feels like a little retirement fund. It feels like you can't get me too. You can't get cut. You can't get boycotted. You can't get thrown off the network. You can't get anything if you have that. Stay if people like it and they're gonNA come out and buy tickets then. Yeah you can do it for the rest of your life and we've seen so many people who've done that and that's another thing that I think feels really good is when when you're doing a film or television or an advertisement you're an employee that's not a bad thing. You have the responsibilities of an employee you have a boss loss. You can go home and be like I. It's tough day. My boss is really a and you can live that life but stand up just like you said it's your own business you're the You're the accountant you're the you're in charge of it. You're all of it and if you can do that and people want to see it yeah you it is is you know. I don't know retirement fund but I think it's almost a pension where you can count on it every weekend and that's a nice thing to that changes your mentality. I think in your life also. Yeah I the difference between being an employee and a boss. I just heard Tim Allen. Just say with stand up. It's the people money any in May. That's that's it that's all that's all it is all right. My movie Shelby American is out November nineteenth. That's Matt Damon's this character and Ford V for our DVD Blu Ray and digital pre-ordered Chassis C. H. A. S. S. Y.. Dot Com.

Gino breaks via will all those crazy gene grant troubled the gene. Knock the news with Gina Grad. Starting with some really really sad and dark news having heard this and actually A little while as of this afternoon Thursday Thursday So far two people reported killed and several others injured during a shooting at a southern California high school and the student gunman Apparently in custody. Now we're hearing self-inflicted brain gunshot wound brain damaged grave critical whatever The shooting occurred around seven. Thirty at Saugus is high school in the city of Santa Clarita. Not Actually too far from where we do the show here Henry Mayo. NEWHALL hospital tweeted. That one. Female patient is dead Two males were in critical article and one male in good condition. But on the way over here I I heard of two people have died Los Angeles County. Sheriff Alex Villanueva. He tweeted that the suspect was in custody and is being treated at the hospital. He said the suspect was a student but gave no other information however also on the way here reported that it was maybe his sixteenth birthday a Asian male went to school hearings. Keep hearing. It's you know they didn't make it a big deal over his sixteenth birthday. Yeah that's what I kept hearing too but I'm a psycho so what instagram bio. I guess it was like have fun at school today. Saugus high school so they should also if if if you are a mass shooter and then you attempt to kill yourself with a pistol and you're clinging to life I say we just put a glad bag over your head. I I mean yeah this is your wishes are being honored and then you wanted to send what are you GonNa do by the way I mean this guy's in California he's not going to be put to death. We're going to spend several million bucks putting him back together and then he's going to cost us because he's GonNa be in maximum. Whatever lockdown for is GONNA cost? Sixty five have K.. A year as far as I can tell people live longer imprisoned than they do outside of prison because outside of prison they smoke and they drink and they get in a car accident since shit in the joint working out guys like solitaire. I mean those guys go on into the mirror three square meals a day. This going well knows eighties. I mean in terms of paying being for this guy if he makes it through the super expensive surgery in involved with right. Now it's going to be sixty five K.. For seventy years I like spread that out. I think that You know obviously not a lot of funny stuff about this but in the sense of kind of maybe the parents one justice to be served type of thing but it is not justice to sorta take him off life support. I'm not sure the weird thing for me today was supposed to do good day. La Hey this morning and they said we know breaking news is and I yeah. They're they're obviously going to do that. Coverage and stick around. You know we'll see if if we can fit you in. I talked to Kate and she was like. Don't stick around work to go. I'm at brea this weekend. You guys I notice tough but we need to laugh you now but I think now that was a weird thing for me where I sort of realized there is no antidote for the way that the media. It covers this stuff you just. You're they want you to be glued and they wanNA give you as much information as possible but they kept. I saw them finding in people that were crying. I saw them go up to one person and then see somebody who's crying and then go over there and say. How did you feel when that was happening? Do you ever think this is going to happen. There's sort of asking the same questions but trying to find the most You know the the saddest people the people that were the most tragic stories and so that's with me. I'm like how do you cover this in a way. That's respectful but also gives everybody the information at a really tough line to walk. I don't I know if you guys are all like me but I'm I don't hang on the news on these stories. I assume people were shot. A couple died. Couple were injured. It's all wildly tragic and I don't need to know the part about the one young kid who was getting ready to graduate later later that whatever just made Eagle Scout you know. Just it's it's. It's more salt on the wound that never scabs. I laughed and I I was not checking in about it or whatever I've a friend. Megan know who will get sort of sucked into that whole thing. But I think that's the idea of what the media is doing is trying to just keep you watching. And I don't hang on it because they were doing interviews which was like what are you what did you do. What were you thinking when you did that? And they said well we locked the doors to the classroom and they said when what happened then other kids were banging on the door to try and come into the classroom and we didn't let them in Mike. Whoa this is now? You're putting people in Weird. Moral Compass Position Hunger Games. Yeah and you're you're also just saying now who are watching going well. Why don't you let the other kids in? And then somebody else's well. What if one of them was the shooter? It just it gets to be too much. I like better your idea. which is this a tragedy? I'll hear about how many people died right but why does that make it any better or the people that live. It's just I think there's a lot more shod and Freud going on in in our society these days media. We used to kind of do that thing where I was kind of. You know. It's it's sort of like like your your fiancee would dump you. And then you'd find out that they remarried you know nine months later and back in the day you'd have to be sort of stoic about it like you go. Well I wish Jenny. Good luck in her new. Roy said Fuck that dish. Fuck Dude back guys fucking shit man she fuck yourself you know what her pussy stinks like. That's where we're at now and it's like you shouldn't be i. There's this shot in Freud. The thing that I think is pretty ubiquitous like you you love hearing about like Ooh. They found a picture. This guy in black face from nineteen eighty-one you know or they found this. So they've this person's tattled on her say behind that computer and so they never have to interact with the actual person. The shooting at the school shooting. The thing is a another kind of well. I wasn't there or my kid. Wasn't there a good thing my kid wasn't there. It's kind of what you do with plane. Crashes and stuff like oh I fly but I wasn't on that plane and it shouldn't feel that interesting or compelling it shouldn't like suck you in it should be I have I feel bad for everyone involved and then fill me in on all the details when you get all the four days not every five minutes. What are you talking about Sean Freud and not to not to shit on your point but just to sort of swayed it a little bit? This feels more like as the other side of that coin instead of shod and Freud. It's the dateline a mother's nightmare because it's not that Oh this didn't happen to me. This could happen and to me. I agree it's all living through kind of the potential of other people's good and bad like God. I'm glad I wasn't there are I'm glad that wasn't my yearbook. That those guys open and found that picture man and Baba Blah into your engine is. There's a very a couple of the interviews abused. They did. Were just over and over. Did you ever think this would happen to you. Think this guy happened in Santa Clarita. It's one of the safest places where in California and so what they're doing is exactly said they're saying like dateline. I mean Santa Clarita who could have thought. I guess this can happen anywhere. I don't know that you need that information if you look at the statistics that same as the plane crash. It's not going to happen to your kid. They do the drills. They do the best that they can do. Hopefully some of these people are getting mental health. But it's because of social media and because it's not just good day. La That's covering it. It's a thousand websites that that are getting every it's cut and paste journalism and everything is true if they just say it's so it becomes this like huge machine that if you even tap in a a little bit. You're in the matrix that's right. If you're even start to get alerts then you just start going into the rabbit hole and that is not healthy for people. People were calling in live culture. No they were calling into the radio listening on their own police scanner. So everyone's been deputized a reporter because that's not necessarily accurate information that they're that they're dispersing dispense. I don't I don't know what to do other than my same answer. which is everyone needs to hit the trail or go the garage and start putting some some would together man like you gotta get out you gotTa shut it off and you gotta get tactile? You gotta put something together. I really. That's another point that I make in you know my shows is that social media. I think in a couple of years will look back at it like we look at cigarettes now. You know there's somebody on snapchat indoors and be like take that shit outside. Keep it fifteen feet away from the entrance secondhand snapchat he kills and and so it's so unhealthy but for a moment we thought it connected. People are was healthy and now it's obviously isn't but now we're hooked now. We're already thirty. We've gotten to the point where we're two packs a day and the best we can do is say. Let's bring it down to one pack and what you're talking about a little bit is like quit cold Turkey key or at least take time off because it's just not gonNA help you. It's now I think the snapchat or whatever what tweets or whatever over this this notion of like facebook whatever there was this proclamation and it's GonNa bring us together and it reminds me the last sort of technological break revolution so to speak would be like when stuff started getting automated. Like dishwashers washing machines. Zeno heating and air and all this stuff and every every advertisement in the fifties for a woman with a washing machine was woman lounging like reading a periodical. The article while the washing machine was doing the work but but in reality all the computer and the washing machine. All it's done is free us up to work more so it's like at this promise of we'll have leisure time so because the computer will take care of all our work so fast now no it just means you're working weekends and on an airplane now right so or on on social media has become work then the dishwasher that you have to wash you've to wash the dishes before you put them in the dish that is. Don't get me started at this argument very many times. My wife who claimed also by the way who are the chick friends who just agree with the nonsense. That comes out out of the wife's lucky go. I just your Hammett the sink. You got hot water. Go and you've got the sponge out. Why are you loading them into the dishwasher and as they go you you know they have that weird smell after drives and then the friend goes? Oh Yeah Yeah No. Yeah no one yellow. What what not your friend when when when people different so when people clean out of my house when they clear out and I'm home alone for four days it's like one plate Ranson Ranson never fireeye put anything in the dishwasher? cates always putting. She's finishing cleaning. It just went skin there. So it's hygenic that's right that's in. It's funny because you say do something tactile. Do I like doing the dishes. 'cause you get them done you dry them and then you're done you did it yourself but the machine gene. It's done in your argument art. I want them clean. And it's like that's what we're doing and it's fine but what I'm saying is the promise of of all this technology in the fifties and the sixties what's to free us up for leisure time we can write poetry now. All it's done is make everyone work more and the promise. All the social media was going to bring us together and it just tearing US apart. Well you're absolutely right. Even with the fifties and sixties to afford the new dishwasher. Asher that your neighbor has you do have to on the weekends to get the better microwave that heats it faster. You need to have more time to work from home because now now you have a laptop and then just like how Mike Waves now. We go F- dismay give you cancers using radiation. We don't even have a microwave. I think hopefully soon people will realize that social media and even further than that cut and paste journalism is like really really damaging. And the best thing you can do is exactly you said it's it's just like back away from it to say that feeling of being out of touch for three days like you know that feeling of it's also go on the road just dake traveling or be around and he realized three days has gone by Nokia. What's going going on? Where are we? What's the latest trump news? I haven't heard anything traveling and performing or whatever there's a very it's it's that feeling of when you step out of a sonner hot tub or something that kind of you know it but I think so. Many people are ourself agitating. They're literally flicking their own tooth. That hurts in their gums. And they just keep flicking with their tongue and it's like why are you self agitated. Why not flagellating zooms right like I should have known? This friend is talking about this. That's why I left. I felt very fortunate. Cnet that Kate brought me to France to be in Avignon. What's the south of France? Because there was none of it they they would do on on on. You would see on the front page of the newspaper. You'd see a distilled version by real journalist of what was going on with trump. If you wanted to pick that up but I would walk by people and and they were either on instagram or putting things on instagram. Which I think is the least evil although you're still growing going that looks like a launch? I wish I had had going love. Cherish that communication. I'll never take but in France they weren't wrapped up in the thing. It was more about being at the cafe meeting with your friends. People rose texting tweeting. Yeah exactly and I don't. I don't think they're connected to it in the way that the United States is in that kind of bums me out because I I did feel that when I was in Europe and then when I came back it was almost like an onslaught of. It's like when you make make the decision to stop getting Google alerts for your own name. You know you just you stop wanting to know what the the Internet has to say. You stop getting those apple news drop downs. He's turning off notifications for news. It frees you up and I think hopefully not to do work I always say all roads lead to narcissism and I think this is tapped into a kind of a narcissism that we all carey within us but never really explored or X.. Are Exported in the past. Now you can find you can weigh in on everything or find Out What people thought of how you weighed in you know there was just a time and I think we all have that feeling of like somebody was talking about you on the the school yard. What did they say you know? We're all wired that way but there was just no when I used to live work construction and I didn't have a phone or anything. It was like what was I doing. Just leave the house in the morning and go work all day and then come home and watch sportscenter Sunday night. Sports machine. Michael I think when you think about like your kids who grew up in the eighties or the seventies or whatever if they got bullied at school school would be over. School would be over by three o'clock and then they go home home and then they play with their stuff for they watch TV. Now that shit follows you home it follows you. You're right you're right usage it. Just be in the school yard. You can go lease at three. I don't have now. People are obsessively checking like. Yeah what did becky say about me. and John broke up with her. So as possible and here are pictures of it. And here's an ugly picture. I saw her and I'm posing on my instagram. Because she was being a bitch to me yesterday. All that stuff is so so unhealthy. And you're so right it falls you just a key. There is a remedy out. There is a remedy. which is you can just go enjoy a hotdog? Without taking a tour of the slaughterhouse and figuring out how the meat was processed and everything over the yelp review. You stop pouring over all your own stuff. Just go out and enjoy all right. Go ahead Shannon sorry. It just reminded me when we're talking about the beginning of this story. I I was up for a really big job. I it was like two thousand twelve radio job and my agent called a million times and said no matter what this morning's you got to be perky. You gotta be happy. The first person person you see the receptionist you are on fire. You are happy you are up and I said sounds great and I prepared and I was great. I was so excited and I walked in and people are sort scrambling around and this is a top forty station. And I'm like the vibe is weird but that's okay I'm Jeanette Sodas in each you and they're all looking at me like I'm an Astle I met with the with the VP of programming programming. And I'm shaking his hand. I'm smiling and she's been around but she's young can clean and he goes. You didn't hear the news off ought to the news is I'm so happy to meet you. Sandy Hook had just happened ten minutes before I walked in the door. And I didn't know that because I was preparing to be Yup okay so Laurie Lachlan got a better picture. This week of what. She may face if found guilty so the thirteenth apparent in the Varsity Blues College Admission Scandal was sentenced to six months in federal prison. And this is where it has to do with Laurie so his name is todd Toby McFarland he paid around the same amount of money she did and for USC and that's the same college of course that her daughters Two daughters got in a superior athletes in rowing. Toby lied about his daughter. About being star. Soccer player claimed his son was a basketball recruit. he's five five by the way and in addition to prison honors as the Sun. The judge in Boston where spud McFarland. He has to pay one hundred fifty grand perform two hundred hours of community service two years supervision after the release of six months in jail and because these were very very parallel paths. Now that's probably what she's looking at so They have cops. Basically precedent say has a specific content. Well tell me when she goes in so I can sleep at the front door unlocked. That night long walks in the park at night not have to look over my shoulder anymore. It's Kinda to quit. Did like people are following that. And that's the that's the shot in front again now when it could have been me that bribes somebody to get my kid in the combs. There's none of that your feelings about her should be so what not like. I have really strong feelings about justice. Yeah who cares God and also kind of thing where I have a lot of sympathy for people that I do feel like get sucked into stuff like I felt like I hate it when they go like well. You know. It wasn't Clinton in the Whitewater thing. It said he lied about Monica Lewinsky. Like okay wife was sitting next to him and you're asking him if he was banging entire like of course he's GonNa lie. I feel bad for the people that get sucked into something. I don't know that she gets sick but I most affluent parents of somebody came to him and like attacks thing. I'm sure you heard about it from a girlfriend. It's like Martha Stewart. You know what I mean like if I own tip seventy million shares of Upjohn and I was getting onto a private jet and sewing. Goes you know they test new drug it it just failed. The EPA has to the D. whatever test and they're not gonNA approve it. I'd go okay. Well dump that doc man like I do it too and why do we know because people do that the that her daughter was like trying to be a youtube star and was saying. I don't even care about college. I want go to college. Why do I know that? Need to be part of the information that we all have. And that's sort of the L. that we're talking about right now following her on instagram right to make an observation mode. TJ was saying earlier about the news. It was very insightful. They keep you watching you watching. I heard I don't know I don't remember where it was or who was was but as a crazy idea that was like that's insane. That's a great idea. And I'll never happened. Someone's like what really happens if you are a news organization. NBC News Cnn. Fox's whoever you should know how to make money. You should not be allowed to take advertisers. Just give the news how the news would change if they weren't taking if they didn't weren't trying to keep the viewers viewers watching for advertisers. Like if it was just a news service. I've got the news. What changed in our relationship with information? It'll never ever happen but that's a great idea. It's an interesting China and that worked out government run. I think everyone's opinions would still take over and and they he's still be there for you it but I agree we interesting and take take the face masks so way to get rid of the football. It's like that will ever happen. Ed is a good idea but it'll never happen. Yeah agree by let me hit Castrol edge stronger under pressure. Engines can lose up to ten percent performance. Due to friction fiction castrol edge with fluid titanium transforms under pressure. Eight is Three times stronger than leading full synthetic against viscosity breakdown. It's the it's formulated. In ways exceed the toughest industry standards it is castrol edge. One More Geographic Greg. Because the teachers got a hard all right. Well it's not exactly as bad as Laurie Laughlin because she's obviously the worst. But amid new rape accusation against Roman polanski protestors testers protesters showdown the premiere of the directors latest film according to deadline forty people quote blocked the entrance to a premiere of an officer Sir and spy on Tuesday night in Paris ultimately resulting in the screening getting canceled. There's new allegations from nine hundred seventy seven or new much allegations allegations now recently. Polanski was accused by a French photographer. Valentin Monier of raping her in nineteen. Seventy five. He's denied the allegations. Nations the Oscar. Winning the Oscar winner has been living in France since fleeing the US and seventy eight After pleading guilty to having sex with a thirteen year old girl who later would it'd be would would say. Please stop doing this to me. Please please Chinese trying to get on with my life. You they can people can say anything and then then then suddenly. You're premiers getting blocked and I saw as posters for that. That was going to be a big movie in France. Maximum Pat. Tell me if I'm right. I'm interested in the the kinds. I think he was going back door during the during the Jacuzzi right I think so yeah. Let's bad girls victimized once in a while there's a due to rape and he goes Oh and by the way I'm going going into the keys and it's like boy you have high self esteem. Yeah I feel like I'm I can't even rape. I'm that low self esteem. I wouldn't pose myself. But you're you're going for the whole Enchilada Outta here with my wife since college and never has that come up in conversation where she's like. Oh yeah sure I think that'd be great. I'm just I know I know it may may been Romans idea. Thirteen year olds idea. Possibly it was a different time. We can't judge but was is that part of the allegation Bob Evans idea seeing rape sodomy and oral. Wow Jesus Christ ace now it is a little a little slippery with the sodomy as I'm always yet depending on where you want. My grandpa used to say what's on my license plate frame now slippery with the side of me but just Kasahda me Kinda can mean a bunch of stuff depending on the law you know what if you say oral and rape and sodomy normally talking kind of. They're pretty strange that it's another allegation from that time and again no evidence or anything just straight up like yeah you did this and then now all again. The machine starts to destroy at this point I mean I would imagine the statute and Francis is the same. So it's just the court of public opinion in and they can keep them. I have a kind of a cosmic thing with him. And then it's sort of the same cosmic thing I have with bill cosby which is You Know Bill Cosby had his son. And it's Just snuffed out by the side of the road. Like he didn't happen to him. You know. His son was shot executed by some Russian Dougie Kitty Gang Banger. Whatever happenstance no no no rhyme? No reason and that's super tragic. If if you're bill cosby anybody to have your son just just executed by gun at the side of the road for no reason and you know Roman Polanski. Obviously he came home or found out that his wife pregnant wife with his son or daughter in it executed for no reason the most gory whatever. Whatever I don't know I feel they're both cosmetically paid back right like like there is no how you really going to punish him? You know what I mean. What can concern what? They've been through like what they've done. I feel in a way like I hate it when it is caused. Then more pain than any jury could I I. It's interesting ideas. The ideas somebody takes a life. We need an eye for an eye. Are we need to punish person. It's not we don't need money from them. It's a punitive thing like. They need to be punished. Having your son executed is clear to permanent punishment and having your wife. Slaughtered is pretty much auto that until once upon a time in Hollywood and they started sort of recounting that story and had that's terrifying. Yeah they cut her open and killed her kid and you know all right. Not Defending the Labs Tasman leading punished. Yeah all right. Let's see book look and say tonight. Man announced right.

"You want it you need it it's what everyone's talking about the kevin sheehan show now here's kevin seconds one accept your copay he's been fused one dribble pull up till two steps thirty scolded by the way the polls is on james yes thirty six game winners during the course of kobe bryant's career good morning afternoon evening whenever you're listening to this it's just a aaron and yours truly today crazy day yesterday obviously one of those days that you know for for a lot of people not everybody okay i recognize not everybody was moved yesterday even if you were surprised but it is is one of those days and fortunately they don't happen very often which is why when they do they hit so hard but one of the yesterday's one of those days you're going to remember member where you were and what you're doing when you heard the news that kobe bryant was killed in a helicopter crash in in my lifetime you know there have been and you know i don't know three four super surreal days where it seems like a dream you know it really hit home there's nothing in my lifetime lifetime that hit home in terms of an athlete steph look nine eleven there was no more surreal day the nine eleven you know that's not necessarily comparable in scope to what we had yesterday or to another you know entertainer or athlete dying but it's comparable in sort of human reaction and emotion but for me the day that len bias died is dale never ever forget and it was certainly not a worldwide reaction like yesterday's was but it was shocking in the same way and sean taylor's death was shocking because the night before he passed away there was encouraging news if you recall that he was perhaps going to survive and be okay but yesterday's just one of those days total shock total bewilderment you know you're hoping that it isn't true then you're dealing with the fact that it is true and then there is sadness and then there or the awful images you know human images in your own mind of how it happened you know the recognition of how it can all end so quickly you know no matter how would you are you know no matter what condition you are it is a reminder you know how fleeting life is in specially for a younger generation when someone like he a hero like kobe bryant dies it's like their first experience with oh my god this can happen the thirteen eighteen year old daughter gina being in that helicopter as well is really a difficult swallow for everybody i just you just hope is apparent you know in most of you are many of you are you just hope that you know koby was they're comfortable with you know comfort for for her that they were together holding each other you know and probably him saying it's gonna be okay if they knew that assumes that they did know what was coming in that in itself is horrifying to even think about but anyway these these days are shocking they're horrifying they're sad and then you know they also so are sort of influencing in the moment you know for a few hours or a day or two you think about what's really important in life you know everybody takes a moment to recognize you well how fleeting life can be and it becomes instructive in you get people on twitter you know doing me give a hug to somebody tell those close to you how you feel tell people that you love that you love them there's all of that of course some but i'll tell you you know personally kobe bryant's death is a big deal for a generation that grew up watching him appreciating him is rising him and he was for my boys there you know my son's there jordan he was my my boys were crushed rushed yesterday erin my oldest is not much of a sports fan but my two younger children corbin who you know very very well and my younger son ryan were absolutely devastated they loved kobe bryant corbin was a massive kobe bryant fan he he used to wake up before school middle school and he would go right to sportscenter highlights if the lakers played the night before and would read box scores he knew everything and still does to this date everything about kobe bryant kobe was his guy and my youngest my youngest son because his older brother was a kobe guy he became a massive kobe fan corbin was with me yesterday were watching the maryland game you know the maryland indiana game which i'm going to get to i mean we're gonna do some sports on the show today and it was just an incredible game and we're watching that game together and during big maryland games it's usually the three of us us on a group text if we're not in the same locations talking about the game and my son ryan who's at penn state senator text in the you know in the second half he's like kobe oh be died question mark are you guys seeing this and we hadn't immediately went to twitter and from that point forward the maryland indiana the anna game became insignificant for us and i can tell you you you know for my family for that game yesterday to become a total afterthought that saying something complete elite shock you overtook the room and it became a massive search for information on twitter you know and i remember i got a text from a friend of mine mine at during this thing TMZ just took the took the report down and i said that to my son and he's like well maybe it's not true maybe it's you know there's there's this brief relief or hope that wasn't true but as it turned out it was the internet was exploding yesterday during this and i did read early this morning that for a few minutes TMC's website had crashed which is why i got a text from a friend saying it's been taken down but twitter was in uttar stunned disbelief in the report i came the first report was TMZ you know this TMZ which has really really gotten a lot of shit right for a long time now you know they are not traditional media as we've known it for modem the the majority of our lifetime but we know who TMZ is we've broken so many stories have gotten things wrong too but they've gotten a lot of stuff right how did they get this one and well i did hear just about an hour ago that they were actually going to do a story on koby and this basketball league in his daughter her so they were sort of in the general vicinity but still when it's TMZ you're thinking act could be wrong you're not totally sure you you know so then the l a TV station the local affiliate i think it was the ABC affiliate they were the next to sort of put it out there and interest in confirm it but still for the first thirty minutes of this thing it wasn't on ESPN and it wasn't on the crawl it wasn't on CNN MSNBC fox news networks there was no crawl there was no anything so you are thinking you know is it true you know or because even in this day and age aaron where sometimes the networks and the major newspapers are like the last ones to find out in sometimes it's because they're the they're the only ones that are going to make sure that it's completely confirmed in multiple sources true journalism rules all of that perhaps even waiting for next of kin to be notified lied but still when it finally showed up on television it made it sort of real you know even though i think at that point it was starting to become real and then we had at least in our our minimum of multiple reports that turned out to be completely inaccurate like rick fox former NBA player former laker mike wilbon was on radio with me this morning for a half an hour rick fox is one of kobe's very closest friends and for you know for solid thirty minutes rick fox had perished on the helicopter with them there was also the report that was really devastating and troubling deal with that all four of his daughters were on the helicopter but as it turned out it was koby it was his thirteen year old daughter jonah they called her g. g. seven others not part of kobe's family were on the plane including a legendary baseball coach from orange coast college in southern california john john altobelli the son of joe altobelli who was the manager for the orioles world series winner in nineteen eighty three and john l. tobel altobelli and his wife kerry and his daughter eliza who was teammates with kobi's daughter gianna that's why they were on the helicopter together because they are we're headed to a basketball game according to according to john altobelli brother ge- he would routinely fly with his daughter to attend games with kobe on kobe's helicopter was kobe's helicopter used it to get around everywhere for a long period of time there was an assistant and girls basketball coach named christina mouser who coached at a private school in l. a. a. k. through eight private schools she was on the helicopter and there were three others as well l. nine in total some of the details of the crash really started to come out late last night early this morning ESPN had an in-depth report about the crash the helicopter it was climbing at about twenty four hundred feet trying to make a turn before dove to the ground the the ESPN in story said that the pilot had only moments before he contacted air traffic controllers to say that he had begun to climb to go above a cloud layer it was a a heavy clouds in the area we know that whether now was certainly an issue and perhaps a factor in the crash the NTSB will eventually give us the cause of the crash but it was shortly after nine forty AM pacific time the helicopter turned for a third or fourth time i'm trying to climb to two thousand feet above sea level and then according to this report it descended and crashed into a hillside at about fourteen hundred feet and when it struck the ground the helicopters flying at about one hundred and eighty four miles per hour and descending at a rate of more than four thousand feet per minute the video we saw the video of all of the fire and the smoke on that hillside you know it's an awful sight regardless of who's involved but the fact that kobe bryant was on that flight at turned a local story a tragic local story into a worldwide story it was sort of sports pop culture colliding yesterday day in total and utter disbelief not just here in this country but around the world i had a friend of mine you know i'm sure like everybody you with your group of the friends that you text with and you communicate with texts are flying and one of my friends said bias you know and i said yes in in terms of the same level of shock for us but you know in in the comparison would be an athlete so strong so skilled you you know never thinking they almost look like they're nothing could happen to them but the reaction to kobe's death is worldwide lend biases mrs was more of a US reaction in kobe's death is huge china throughout europe throughout australia and new zealand in all around the world basketball is either the second most popular sport in the world behind soccer or at least the third behind soccer and cricket in i think i've been corrected on on this when i've said it's the second most popular sport in the world because cricket is super popular too but the NBA so huge and in some mhm cases as big in other areas of the world as it's almost as big as here kobe bryant wasn't perfect all right we know we know the story of colorado and nineteen year old hotel worker he was very different though i i remember having conversations about this many times when he spoke multiple languages fluently he lived much of his childhood in europe most of it in italy because his father was a professional basketball player as most of you know he he was very intelligent you know he's one of the great players of all time you know without a doubt but he was you know it it's when you you live outside of this country when you live internationally when you live in different places in different cultures you're you're exposed to a lot more than perhaps apps a lot of his contemporaries were growing up and it's one of the reasons in wilpon pointed this out on radio with me this morning it's one of the reasons that this is being taken console hard worldwide and why kobe was so popular in in places international even even more so than a lot of the others that preceded him including michael and larry in magic it's because there was this sense that kobe was different he had lived life in europe in his formative years he spoke all all these different languages he was more sort of versatile as a human being you know and look i mean much of the world views america is very narrow is very self absorbed you know and it's it's it's not necessarily true do but that's the perception of it and you know kobe was viewed differently he was viewed much differently which is one of the reasons that he was so super popular around the world he's one of the great players of all time you know we've done this prior to his death and we will do this for years to come after his death the conversation about how great was he you know where does he rank well on a day like today i'm not one of these people that's gonna to say oh you can't talk about that or it's inappropriate to talk about this at this point any reaction that people have to me you know in emotions long as it's not personally personally attacking is is fine we all react in our own ways but it's fine to talk about his career today you know what i read on the inner we're not talking talking about rankings and stuff for not talking about this got to give it a few days whatever everybody i'm gonna talk about it right here he's not a top ten player of all time i'm sorry sorry he's not a top five player of all time in my in my house fight you a bit on the top ten a lotta people haven't just outside the top i've got him in the top ten to me is a top ten and player i think most would say that he's not top five he's not the thing that koby will forever be remembered for more than anything else athletically allegedly is his killer competitiveness the jordan competitive gene the tiger woods thing the larry bird thing you know he's always going to be thought of as right there with michael he had that something that you don't teach you don't learn you're just born with he was a killer miller on the court cl one of the great closers of all time you know with michael and bird you know he took every big shot thirty six career game winners was he won with and without shaquille o'neal which remember you know at the in two thousand eight and those years when when he got the additional two championships unshipped without shack that was super important for his legacy if he had if he had retired with just the three titles with shack he would've even thought about much differently as a player much differently he needed those championships without shack he really did he had eighty one one as we know he had sixty in his final game his talent and skill were off the charts but it's his killer alert competitive gene that ability to close out that makes him an all time great and with respect to that category of who are the greatest hyper competitive athletes of all time he's right there with jordan with bird with the tiger woods you know all the people that we think about individual sports are completely different and in team sports the reason we sometimes focus in on a player like michael or koby is because you see it so much more and it's so much more impactful tom brady's killer competitor editor to their killer competitive football players of all time and and we we know that but the impact they have on the final result the game is not the same as one of five on a court for a team in a basketball game the eighty eighty one point night so this was in two thousand six it was actually on a monday following championships sunday AFC NFC championship sunday and i'll never forget this morning morning because it was really like at the beginning of my radio career which for me was sort of a second professional life that i've had here for now you know seventeen years something like that and i was doing updates at nine eighty i was the early morning update anchor and so you know it was one of those deals where the first update happened at six AM and so on sunday night i'm going to bed thinking i got this is an easy easy update morning because i just got championship you know talk and i woke up the following morning and part of the routine was recording sportscenter you know the early fi- five david four or five AM sportscenter and watching the first fifteen minutes of it and it was all about kobe going off eighty one and i'm like oh my god that sort of changes is the the rundown for your updates not you know it's not a big deal but i'll never forget that that watching that and i'm like oh my god eighty one points and i was listening to people last night talk about that eighty one point night and one of the more interesting stories that i was listening to last night was bruce bowen who was you know a phenomenal NBA all-time defender for the spurs and you know how many of those classic matchups between the spurs and the lakers with bowen being given the responsibility body of covering and trying to slow down kobe bryant and a lot of the discussion about that eighty one point night was how great kobe was but also how bad toronto anna was toronto is a bad team a bad defensive team in jalen rose was pretty much it disinterested defender at times and he was on them for some of the night and a couple of other players ron and they just couldn't stop him in so bruce bowen told the story about the next day they're either at practice or getting ready for a game i forget what he said but he's having a conversation with tony parker and parker said man not much defense last night i mean seriously he goes 'i parkers like i think a lot of people coulda could've gotten eighty-one and boeing just looked at him and said in bowen super competitor defender just said it doesn't matter who's guarding someone eighty one eighty one like it's hard to get eighty one against no defense so he was blown away as was the rest of the league fifty i five points in a half you only had twenty six in the half i remember i was i think it was the day actually we i was a freshman at maryland at the time i think that might have been the day we moved back from winter break and we're all we're doing stuff we're playing video game whatever all of a sudden i remember one of the guys that are hall bursts it was probably halftime kobe has fifty five will hit fifty five in the second half of that 'cause i could have the twenty six six in the first half does after the third quarter when he really started going off people started freaking out we just all drop everything go into the common room and watch that yeah i mean you you know his final game in washington as part of that farewell tour was i was there that night and that was in electric environment and i i remember saying the next day on the air that you know next year whenever it was i remember talking about how what it really was is a reflection of was washington basketball town you know first of all the given the teams that the wizards and bullets it had for so many years many of those years it was about coming out to watch dr j. larry bird magic johnson michael jordan and then you know the lakers or the celtics or geena then then it became shack and coby and then you know it's been lebron in recent years and but the ovation that he got he got it everywhere he went but there was some discussion discussion about washington being one of those remarkable in very very incredible scenes for his farewell tour in twenty sixteen and it was so loud in there were so many kobe chance and there was a video played on the jumbotron and there was a a standing ovation and i remember the next stay on the air the conversations were about this sort of pathetic that we live in a city like this lawyer where you know like a ba- basically was a road game for net but we we've seen that a lot lot for the wizards over the years not just for that night but that night was about him and about that DC is an incredible appreciative basketball paul city something you know that that has been discussed many times by many people me included that you know if you're not from here and you are sports fan over the years there's a not so much in recent years but over the years you think oh yeah it's the redskins you know they dominate they're the number one story in dc and that's always been true in terms of of the interest level until very recently but but at its core DC has more people interested participating dissipating actively involved in the sport of basketball than any other sport you know look we've talked about it talked about it all last week with the with the passing of morgan wootten that it's you know arguably the number one high school basketball hotbed in america for by the way both boys and girls i mean you've had the best high school basketball league in the country in the WC AC forever four teams in the top twenty five here recently and you know uh-huh you combine you know the the city to the north thirty five miles to the north baltimore incredible husky put those two together and it's the best you take the talent that comes out of baltimore and DC and the city in PG county and surrounding counties it's incredible and basketball's really huge in and dumb that night was really sort of also reflection of not only the respect and appreciation for kobe but just how good of a basketball town on this is that people really love basketball it also made me think about this is you know this death yesterday happened on a day which was a sunday in late january in the middle of basketball season college you know high school pro but more importantly you know every gym in in america on saturdays and sundays during the winter are packed basketball games you know you know overflowing with parents in a youth key in kids playing and coaches and referees and and then you also have the NBA games yesterday and the college games yesterday and you know this generation this younger generation they l- they loved kobe bryant's so yesterday just for so many parents in coaches you know whether it was after the game informing the team or the team new before the game and they were distraught you had that going on all over the country yesterday you know if it happens in july hi it's tragic it's sad but you know i it doesn't you don't then have to participate in something you yesterday was basketball day in this country i know this because i've coached for thirty years on and off and weekends have been in january and february and march are filled with we're in the car we got a game you know here at eleven and then we've got another gain we got this travel league game eleven AM in PG county and then we got to be all all the way over here in kensington for CYO game or at saint john's for CYO game all of that and that's what you had yesterday going on you know in kids and young people finding out and being devastated look at the NBA reactions incredible and you know the the common thing to do last night in these NBA games were to take an eight second back court violation and then a twenty four second shot clock violation to honor colby colby and the to jersey's jersey numbers that he wore throughout his career we saw that pretty much throughout the league there were couple of others that were a little bit different twenty four twenty four i think it was the forget and the spurs raptors but then yes after i can't remember who is the first team to eight twenty four but yeah that that caught on pretty quickly yeah so you think they should have the sentinel out there about whether NBA suspended or cancelled those games i mean i was thinking about it you know during the afternoon and i was like hauer some of these people who not only played against him some played with him some just grew up idolizing him and barely had any you know true direct experience against him kyrie did not play in the game last night but you know i i think you know it's one of those things where it's it's funny y- you're damned if you do damned if you don't pretty much adam silver obviously decided that they'd go ahead and play the games and in part may be to you know to to say this is probably what the you know super competitive kobe bryant would've would've wanted to do you know kobe would've wanted to go out that night and try to hang hang fifty on somebody to honor michael had happened to michael you know or whatever but i don't think there's a right or wrong decision more times than not in these things i i mean this was not impactful you know directly impact for like some something like nine eleven was obviously where you had cities he's like ours which were on high alert you know and you know not to mention just the honoring of over three thousand people full who had perished in the world trade center and in the pentagon and obviously on flight ninety three shanksville pennsylvania on on that day but it was cool i mean you just don't you know if they're they're these days and i and i know in some people will roll their eyes at this it's a matter of personal perspective but yesterday much of the pop culture world and sports world in particular this was one of those days they absolutely one of those days that they will never ever forget when they heard the news and for to happen the wait was happening in the middle middleburg maryland game which will get to it was really dreamlike in many ways all right what else did i have on this i you know i i did want to talk briefly about the the TMZ aspect of it i i saw a lot of criticism of TMZ breaking the story including from that lunt that LA county sheriff who in his press conference that was held i don't know five thirty eastern something like that that yesterday where he said that the identities of those who were aboard the helicopter when it crashed would not be disclosed yet that there were nine i think that was the first i by moment that we realized that it was nine and not five which was the number for the first couple of hours of this developing situation but this l. a. county sheriff alex villanueva said quote it would be extremely disrespectful to understand that your loved one perished and you learn about it from TMZ uh-huh z. that is just wholly inappropriate closed quote and then the under sheriff tim mara commie tweeted out from the l. a. sheriff's office quote i'm saddened that i was gathering facts as a media outlet reported that koby passed i understand getting the scoop but but please allow us time to make personal notifications to their loved ones it's very cold to hear of the loss via media breaks my heart closed quote vote look here's my view on this this is what TMZ does that's their business for the most part is breaking news they are not concerned about getting it wrong they're clearly not concerned about next of kin being notified and that's that's their business model and they have been right a lot more than they've been wrong and by the way every traditional media outlet it would have loved to have had the story first accurately confirmed per all journalistic you know measures and they would not have waited necessarily for family and friends to be notified let's make that very clear that's the one thing i do because i saw a lot of people say it was only only TMZ that would never no no no no no most of these things are media first hearing about it through the media in family members many many times of famous people famous celebrities here about this information from media people before hearing from it from you know not the LA county sheriff in i know that these people are trained in in breaking this kind of news etcetera but it's not something it gets me worked up it really isn't i the that's their business model that's what they do i know some people find it unseemly i know some people find it to be despicable but that's your opinion mine is this is what they do every traditional media outlet in the country i mean if they had had it first and they had the proper confirmations would have gone with it long before the LA county sheriff's department or anybody else at informed the family members in wouldn't have thought twice about it it's not you know TMZ does not remember they want to get it right their intention is to get it right but really their business model is to get it first and be the first out there you know and you can call that irresponsible journalism resum in called a lot of different things that's the world we're living in now you know there is especially with social media the ability to get information out immediately i it's funny because teams teams he's been right more i think from my perspective i can't list the times they've been wrong they've had a lot of shit right for a long long period of time but still yesterday i wasn't going to completely believe it until i saw on television and that may be an okay boomer comment from some of you but it was like until i saw somebody reputable truly reputable tweeted i believed it don't get me wrong when TMZ had it out there in the LA ABC affiliate i think it was the ABC affiliate phil yeah i believe you're a when they confirmed that i was like this is probably going to be real but there was that you know twenty to thirty minute period where i wasn't even on the crawl and i was like um but they're really making sure that it is confirmed in every way shape or form and part part of it may have just been sort of the the accident itself it's horrifying to think about this stuff but you know you have a flight manifest obviously but you know who knows what the condition of of the people on the plane were you know and how hard it was to confirm that yeah this manifest says these people are on this on this not the plane on the helicopter after but how do we confirm that that's true i mean poor rick fox's friends and family if they didn't you know know that or did they weren't sitting with them you know in the moment horrible horrible story horrible story anyway i think that's basically i mean all of the responses from all the players i think i think the one player for me that i was waiting here from or waiting to read with shack back that was the one we barely heard from lebron he basically said it was too hard to handle when he got in they were on a east coast west coast flight from philadelphia los angeles lakers were where the night before remember on saturday he had passed kobe bryant for third place in kobe's last tweet was about about lebron james and i'm gonna read it right now if you haven't heard it although i would assume that most of you have but kobe's last is tweet on social media was in response to lebron passing kobe for third all time in the NBA scoring list now behind carl malone and kareem still who's at number one and so he tweeted out he tweeted out the following quote continuing to move the game forward at king james much respect my brother with the hashtag the point total that he had generated in past him with and then i nearly forgot about this came the story of sharieff o.'neil shaquille o'neal's son and sharieff o.'neil is a basketball player was a basketball player until very recently at UCLA but he's transferring he's he's leaving UCLA CLA and he he was the at least based on what we know now this may not be true i mean he could have texted or private messaged a lot of people before he got onto that helicopter but kobi's message to sheriff o.'neil shack son came at like eight forty nine a m pacific time so it would have been let it would have been basically i'm sorry eight twenty nine AM AM so it had been an hour and twenty minutes essentially before the helicopter went down and he tweeted to sharieff o.'neil you good fam- you good family their family through the the way they think of each other cherie thinks of him as an uncle and a you know as of of john the daughter that passed away as a cousin even shaq's tweet said you know my niece and my you know and and in in kobe but schrief o.'neil said he responded but he responded basically as it turned out after the helicopter gone down but he didn't know it at the time he responded yet had just been getting this work in trying to figure out my next move how you been question mark and of course that was never never responded to really really sad but i was sorta waiting for a lot i wanted here obviously michael thought with lebron thought would love the great every player's put shack in particular because we know their history in a shack in and kobe were were certainly you know not closely they were are not compatible in a part of that is kobe's killer competitive ways it makes as we know from michael's career for sometimes not the greatest of teammate teammate relationships because they're so demanding people like that and he thought shock you know basically was lazy but they had reconciled and they were much closer closer in in recent years which of course is great to find out i mean there've been so many there have been some of these tragic deaths in the past and we mentioned a couple of them one that i wanted to mention that i had somebody mentioned to me this morning i think either in the phones are on twitter they said you know the reaction to dale earnhardt's death even though it wasn't worldwide but the the pain shock in suffering of those people in that nascar world world was indescribable and i do remember that you know scott help literally got to ESPN and is i gig on his second day or i day was you gotta get down to daytona and cover this dale earnhardt story which he did anyway you know there's been a lot the thurman munson the the roberto clementi you know payne stewart's is death was so shocking concede one that US open in the you know against phil mickelson and then was in private jet you know another summit sometimes he's these horrifying you know deaths are so much worse than if they had passed away from a sickness or a sudden sickness it just just makes your mind going places where you just think about those last moments you're only human when you have to think that way and again i think i mentioned this earlier but boy i mean to be there with his daughter y- you just hope that the two were able to and i can imagine somebody like kobe bryant trying to comfort his daughter in those final moments all right quick word about my

and then use my my promo code kevin kevin dc all right let's talk about what was going on in what you and i were both watching when the kobe news broke broke first of all i have not asked you aaron when it broke how did you find out or how did you find out about it you're obviously watching the maryland game i know that so oh i don't know there were like eight nine minutes left in the game somewhere around there ten minute mark of the second half what how did you handle it so i was i was just i was is in bed i had my laptop i was watching the game and all of a sudden i see like the very early one of the early tweets re tweets of TMZ and miami thing it was just kinda blasted out on texts and i watch thirty seconds of the game after it was on and i could hear you know i remember at the end saying oh in in maryland gets a big win i was like i kind of look like oh they they won okay but yeah for for those two minutes i was barely watching the game yeah because when the it i started to trickle out on social media maryland was down eight they had gone from up fourteen in the first half to down eight in the second half and the game let me just say this spectacular game which i recorded and went back and watched the final ten minutes of late last night because i really felt like i did not know what the hell was going on in those final ten minutes we were switching stations in watching the kobe stuff in on social media following the story but this game started with a first-half from maryland that followed the second half against northwestern that if you add the two together the back tobacco cabs they had scored ninety six points in those two halves fifty one in the second half northwestern forty five in the first half yesterday in bloomington against indiana and it was like doc i've mentioned about the northwestern game that he had gone to something that he typically hasn't done in the past i don't know how much he's really done and it's more of a five out free free flowing let your playmakers make plays couple of rules offense you know wasn't micromanaging each possession and it turned out you know really really well l. for them at northwestern soon as you go into indiana and in the first half i mean things are flowing now they're running more half court offense and more half court sets you you know than they did in the second half against northwestern but at one point maryland was shooting sixty seven percent and they were nine for thirteen from behind the arc early in that game they could not miss but either could indiana but maryland did build a fourteen point lead that was cut to nine at half and i swear to god i said to corbin at halftime erin and i go i'm gonna tell you right now there's going to be a point in the second half where maryland is going to trail in the game he's like they're up nine i'm like they're gonna be down at least one one at some point in this game well they weren't down one they were down eight within it was twenty th they out scott outscored twenty four to seven to start the second half and like the first six minutes indiana went eleven for thirteen to start that second half and with you know they built a sick the eight point lead was built here it is they won up eight with eleven forty five to go so an eight minutes and fifteen seconds back in stay at erased a nine point deficit and were up eight so there it is that was the twenty four seven stretch for them and then it was sort of the rest of the way a game in which maryland was hanging in there there are a couple of moments where it could have turned ugly indiana missed a couple of easy shots missed a couple of open threes is that could have extended you know a seven point lead to ten and then who knows but maryland hung in there they really did they hung in there they kept closing it back to six back to i five and then it got you know back to seven on a on a breakaway dunk right around four minutes to go and then i thought down the stretch the first first crucial play for the turps at seventy one sixty four down seven and you're heading for the under four time out indiana eric i alam l. a. misses a a tough dry baseline in a layup but it was a layup he should have made it they missed it and down comes indiana with a chance to stretch it to nine or ten and we're under four minutes now and they missed en- daryl more cell grabbed a key rebound and then he went coast to coast it wasn't smooth but he got to the rim he scored award got fouled they went to the under four television timeout maryland's down five and he's got a free throw on the other end they could have been up nine or ten but but instead they've got a chance to cut it to four which they did more cell did not play well in the first half at all he sat a lot net first-half looked like you know turgeon was a bit upset with him offensively defensively but we've seen this with their more cell before like in big moments down the stretch he comes up with clutch place ways so they that cut it to four then they fell behind by six seventy three sixty seven and then cowan makes a huge three you know off a off a hand off screen fra a hand off pass and then screened set simultaneously by sticks and he makes this three in its seventy four seventy but then they go up by six and now we're down to close to a minute to go and then sticks makes a driving layup which is not a comfort zone shot dot for him in fact i didn't like the shot at all but he made it and at seventy six seventy two with a minute to go maryland called their last time out after that bucket and they set up the pressure and they gotta steal cowan actually got his hands on a pass jalen smith came up with it they got it to wiggins and that's the shot right there erin because that's an impossible shot he is he was guarded it was contested he knocks down a deep three and with fifty seconds to go it's a one point game and and on the other end maryland gets a stop they don't have any timeouts left they get the rebound anthony cowan gets a quick you know high ball screen corrine from smith who dives to the paint cowan hits him he catches it puts it on the floor and scores i saw a lot of indiana people saying that jalen had walked worked on that plane no he didn't i mean what planet are you on to think that he traveled on that play tracy jackson davis on the other end on what should have been a game winner her for them clearly traveled or carried the ball and it wasn't called and you're not gonna get that call either but sticks made a really good catch got us got himself together to one hard dribble rebel and laid it in with fourteen and a half seconds to go and then merrill got the stop on the other end but it was really a lucky stop in many ways because indiana got hard to get anything better than basically typically uncontested from three feet because sticks was actually stumbling away from jackson davis who missed the floater and in maryland grabbed the rebound and they seventy seven to seventy six by scoring seven point straight to end the game after being down six crazy easy game both teams played well i the couple of things stood out before we get to what happened at the end of the game with jalen smith number one is this anthony cowan was was absolutely unguardable in this game on guard -able and what's really interesting is i got a lot of friends and you do too probably they'll they'll read the box scores as only six fifteen or the other night he was only two for ten or whatever watch the game okay he's impacting the game in many ways in on many nights without outscoring a lot or with bad shooting you know he can have it he's had it off night's shooting here recently but played very well he got wherever he wanted to go at any point he was the most difficult cover on the court i would like i am going to make time to go watch the arch i like watching the press conferences after it here the coaches i haven't heard archie miller but they had no answer no answer for cowan they also did not have an answer for sticks smith who got set up by cowan and i al a bunch in the game but but wow the jump that sticks his made here in the last couple of games air you know do you know how many people including my sons were massive maryland basketball fans who just thought sticks was way overrated for much of last year and this year and i kept saying when you got two first place playing the five spotty should be playing the four spot but but he's see how many times have i told you in the weeks since we've been doing the podcast i've said he's got to shoot more key shooting those threes he's got he's got one of the best strokes on the team four for six from behind the arc yesterday a career high twenty nine after setting a career high twenty five the other night another double double his third straight double double in this stretch of wins over purdue northwestern in indiana he was incredible yesterday dominant in more block shots yesterday he's he's got more lopa he's getting more comfortable with his post moves as of point probably three weeks ago oh i definitely had conversation where we were like oh there's no way he's a first rounder now at least we get him for another here so i don't know where exactly it happened how it happened but he's definitely kicked into a completely different gear his mentality just seems completely different yeah he was he was i'm not gonna say passive but he definitely wasn't assertive early on and now it seems it seems like he's in all right i'm not gonna you know it's cowan's team but he's the guy i mean sticks difference maker when you got a team and i was going to get to this point next but when you got a team that does have scores i'll talk about here about this momentarily and now you've got a guard a five-man out to the three point line and you've got guys like cowen who it with open with an open floor and open paint are gonna really really dice you up your dangerous so here's the other thing about maryland look we a lot of you think that i always get get way too excited after a win or two bullish in don't criticize them enough when they lose whatever had it i tell you how i feel and i've been critical last year was much more critical of this team in their pace of play particularly than i been about this team because this team does have scores they do have shooters maryland's three point percentage shooting this year's been terrible but i've multiple times i've said on this podcast on the radio show it doesn't make sense to me because you know wiggins has a great stroke cowan can really shoot it i alec can really shoot it jalen smith can really stroke it from deep dante scott can shoot it sorelle smith can shoot it and that you know remember with wiggins a couple times and i said to you they're going to be some of these there's going to be a night here where he's going to go five for for ten from from behind the arc and he's gonna end up with twenty six he's coming off the bench right now i don't think he's playing enough minutes i'll just tell you play twenty six minutes yesterday what while cowan going in smith got thirty six and thirty five respectively he's i think just as important in in some ways but whatever seems to be comfortable and he hit a huge three ended up with with eight points on two for five from behind the arc but they've got guys and see this is what makes them very very dangerous is more nights than not they're good good would defensive team i thought they were not very good defensively yesterday but i also give indiana credit archie miller runs great stuff they get the people open in didn't matter about zone or man i i mean i i don't know what turgeon was thinking in that bench was thinking 'cause they tried so so many things defensively and indiana kept getting shots at the rim they miss them in the first half they didn't miss any at the start of the second half but but they ran good zone stuff they ran good man stuff they got a good team they have a very good team they're fifteen and five in maryland our own had beaten them by sixteen or seventeen but they had a thirty point lead in the game in college park you know a month ago but but maryland is hard hard to cover and i know there have been these games were they've really struggled to score but i think it's a product of this league and how tough it is defensively and how tough it is on the road and how well scouted teams are but they have i mean you're crazy just try to be objective about it we can say whatever be one about turgeon you can say whatever you want about their team they are dangerous they they can in have the ability on any given night to put it together and beat anybody in the country they have that kind of ability i love linda linda constructed to you know i think he should play seaborn shoot more but they got into that situation where you want to my age because they're getting out rebounded a little bit so he had him in there actually thought he sub too much for for sticks once or twice it certainly in the first half i think it was we gave them arrest maybe for the under eight and i'm like don't do that sticks doesn't have one foul how he's been late game we had a couple of free throws and he was getting a breather there play your best players you know he is i mean cowan played thirty six minutes sticks played thirty thirty five and he got good contributions i mean i like the way sarah smith is defending and i don't mind when he shoots it he's not the greatest a ball handlers necessarily thoroughly as a hell of a basketball game i hell of a basketball game on a truly strange and bizarre and surreal day because of of of what was going on in los angeles but maryland wins it and you know for all those people that were tweeting me and friends the miners saying dude come on you can't lose to wisconsin because you can't get the ball inbounds and it was frustrating it was i was you know the bad that inbounds pass was bad but they played well against wisconsin and if you look at maryland they've now won six of eight games and they've only played poorly in one game in that was the game at iowa and since iowa just as a matter of fact since iowa beat maryland on that night they've now won four in a row okay and they're ranked and they beat rutgers over the weekend rutgers has been rolling they beat michigan last week so iowa our rankings out yet for today because maryland's going down yeah i was gonna jump up yeah they usually come out around noon so not quite okay so i was gonna jump up from nineteenth to inside the top fifteen maryland's gonna clearly move up from seventeenth seventeenth inside the top fifteen so thursday night in college park with the students finally back you got a big time match up and i think we talked about it on friday and how many big games maryland has their schedule and winning sunday we both said it this would be a massive win for those of you saying this tergence best road win never shut up in the end is not even ranked i know that they hadn't won at indiana i understand that maryland won a lot of road games i know that they haven't won a lot of road games against ranked teams that he you know iowa last week was the first time that that's happened they've won plenty of road games okay against good opponents during the turgeon and era i don't consider that to be the greatest road and i think he was a big win don't get me wrong it was a really big win and important win because it keeps them in that top two two three in the big ten only a game behind believe it or not illinois but the upcoming games for them all right listen to this i would home thursday night i was been playing great they're going to be in the top fifteen fifteen when they come in here thursday night and they got pummeled by iowa in iowa city then they're gonna play rutgers who is playing exceptionally well they were ranked twenty fourth last tweak or rutgers yeah records was ranked twenty fourth and they wanna game last week in lost a game last week right the nebraska lost at iowa lost but a close game they may not they may not fall at all they it wouldn't shock me they're still twenty five or so yeah and then they get illinois in this is the real surprise of the big ten illinois currently in first place in the big ten after beating michigan they've won six games in a row including two three on the road a k a league league that you have not been able to win on the road this year the ally and i have one at wisconsin at purdue in michigan in the last three weeks and they play minnesota on thursday and they've been other game on sunday okay iowa and then they get maryland at home maryland's game in their win over for illinois is one of only two big ten losses for illinois and remember marilyn was down big in that game and came back and took pretty much they're only lead on that cowan three to win it fifty nine fifty eight and that's going to be a game that we look back on and maryland fans are going to be very thankful that they got illinois early on because brad underwood there would completely changed his system this year he figured it wasn't what he was doing wasn't working in the big ten he studied he just kinda changed this whole system and and it took a little while to implement that's why took a weird loss to miami why lost not necessarily lost weight loss to missouri but all of a sudden it seems to be working and they've reeled off six straight cowan hit that three to tie it and then got stealing got on the other end of the a wild ending and it was pretty much the last time the students were still in college park for a game because that was in december so you should have phenomenal environments but marilyn's i mean look they've got they've got illinois illinois iowa they've got two games michigan state they have two games with curse they still play michigan they still play ohio state on the road they still play a ohio state and they don't they play minnesota i think they play minnesota on the road as well they may have another game against northwestern you've you've got right now january twenty seven we got a month and a half before the tournament starts and you're going to have eight to ten ten maryland basketball games that are going to be considered heavyweight twenty twenty college basketball matchups the rest of the way those two games with michigan state the one one in east lansing which is they they play their first in then here in late february both of those games have not been assigned time yet yet because both of those potentially are ESPN game day sites i don't think ESPN game days been backed college they were there for the duke you came in oh five or six something like five five they haven't been back since wow that's unbelievable yeah of course part of that is we don't have we haven't had for six years there's a big maryland duke or maryland carolina game in college park were still getting used to what our big games in the big ten arbat maryland's right there a game out of first and and then aaron after you know a a massive win for marilyn and really one of those stunning sort of you know come from behind wins in the final minute of a game jalen stick smith really showed the kind of of three to one and then erin became the very end of the game after maryland had one and after indiana admits that final shot in jalen sticks smith who clearly more likely than not what had been heckled by in indiana fan base or group fans or perhaps even an individual fan headed over towards the area of the court in which he was having an ongoing interaction with some of the fans in that you had seen it from a couple of minutes earlier in the game and basically started screaming my effing house okay to the point where he was demonstrative where people were throwing things at them from the crowd in and here comes turgeon sprinting across the cord and very emotionally grabbing jalen sand get out of here we don't do this and turgeon opened opened up i have not heard the press conference i'm going to watch it i read the the opening remarks where he spent you know a minute or two apologizing to indiana basketball who's your nation archie miller in the indiana fans and players for jalen you know doing doing what he was doing he said he jalen was taunting the crowd and said it's a great environment tough environment the emotion got him and we know this is maryland basketball ask welfare that's not jalen smith you know he's the opposite of his personality yeah and so in defended him in you know during that press conference by saying those of you you that no jalen that's not as personality that's not who he is and then jalen tweeted out something at the end apologizing as well so my reaction to this is not really worked up over the over jalen smith's reaction i sort of like the fire i like the intensity it's certainly something right understand the coaches reaction okay i do i understand that coaches reaction of we're gonna we're gonna win with class we're going to win uh with with understanding that we may be playing this team again in maybe a month in the big ten tournament or a month and a half or whatever but you know what i mean i'm a maryland basketball fan college park was the only place that coach k. wouldn't let his players come come to our his players family their families come to he wouldn't let his own family come to games college park i'm a maryland fan i remember when gravest vasquez used to taunt the fans at cameron indoor you know alabama when he took that last minute three against NC state ended the did the shimmy yeah yeah in so i it it seemed out of character completely for jalen we don't know what was being said i can tell you this that indiana fans according to a lot of big ten longtime big dent ten fans are really rough on the on the opponents in the same way that maryland fans tend to be really rough i mean you want to see behavior by fans towards a player go back and just see if you can find the f. JJ rettig chance you know the the things that the duke players had to put put up with so i i sort of understand it from every side i'm just telling that from my perspective i've no problem that he got super emotional final super hyped up super pissed at the interaction that he had during the game in the heckling that he was probably taking from the indiana fans and i saw a fire in his his belly that i hadn't really seen but we've seen here in the last few games and so i'm not really i'm not that worked up or upset about it to be honest with you i'm gonna take it a step farther i'm glad i'm happy to see it as you said i i wanted to see that fire it's part of basketball and as long as it doesn't cross any lines as long as he's not going into the standard of course and you know the the profanity to take to a to a different level in the this is my house my floor yeah no problem with that i i don't really think there's a way you can i don't know here's the thing about vasquez when vasquez used to interact with opposing fans there was sort of a lovable aspect to it and a good natured aspect to it on the fan by the time he got to be a senior and people newham in new you know i think a lot of ACC fans hated vascular hey i mean he took a lot of abuse and he loved it uh-huh well to the NC state one was after they were just channing racial slurs that in the whole game that's true and that either i think it may have been at virginia tech your yeah we had some of that in that game where he went for like forty one in double overtime double overtime on the road but you know it's it's sports it's emotional it's intense you know as a maryland basketball fan i've been looking for you know some real new rivalries he's new controversies to ourselves involved in while winning of course and because it's really been sort of a square peg into a round hole here for the first six seasons and now in six years i mean now we're sort of ingrained in this league and it's not always pleasant to be a part of this league but this year is really interesting interesting because the league is so so competitive in so good and the one thing i will say do you remember when dan dockage did maryland's it right from the get go early in in maryland's big ten life dockage did a couple of games at xfinity center and he was in love with xfinity entity center and he talked about oh my god this may be the best environment in the big ten and he's like but you know you're merrill jesse you know you're in the big ten now you can have some places to go to and i thought who the hell is this guy have you have you ever heard of cameron indoor have you ever heard of the dean dome have you ever heard of u. haul back in the day or carmichael back in the day or little john back in the day i mean they're the had some had plenty of venues that were really difficult to play in not to mention marilyn's to coalfield house and xfinity center senator but i have to say that this big ten for basketball you take northwestern out of the equation is there a place you go to penn state's not a great home environment penn state northwestern and the only to every other home venue is first rate like by the way and has real history assembly hall may may be number one i dunno east lansing breslin center maryland's clearly in the top three in this league in terms of home environment west lafayette the the produce got a great home environment illinois hasn't been good recent years but when they've been good basketball they've we've had a great home environment what again michigan chrysler you know yes it's it is really a grind in turgeon said on friday i think it was he said look part of this this year of of the row teams having a difficult time in this league is that everybody's good this year northwestern was close against ohio state last night at home they've been close against everybody but anyway the stigma thing thing i'm fine with it i'm really not that overly worked up about it i don't think it's classless i think it's emotional i think it's competitive i i understand from a coach's perspective and i guarantee you if i were the coach in that position i wouldn't want my players doing that necessarily but at the same time back in the locker room i might i'd say that was awesome in we we came back from six down in the final minute won a game and jalen is all fired up and he's feeling himself now i mean he's confident some of that i i like i'm one last thing before before i run so yesterday in the proble which i did not watch any of them but i was told that they had this rule in place did you see this for onside kicks the rules proposed last year by baliles denver exactly where instead of an onside sidekick you can take the ball at your own twenty five yard line for four th and ten and then a fourth and fifth team excuse me yes fourth and fifteen and so whatever happens on that play get stopped they get the ball there if you make it you keep the ball in it's fourth and fifteen at the twenty five yard line i actually love the idea i really do love the idea but with that said and yesterday i think it was kirk cousins who was the quarterback for the play i think realized they haven't yet cousins apparently i didn't see the any of the pro bowl because apparently came in is the third quarterback for the NFC behind breeze and wilson i guess he was was he the first alternate after rogers dropped out probably probably maybe dak why wouldn't have dak played i dunno whatever but apparently he had thrown for two touchdowns and and it was a close game and they chose the on side kick you know alternative and they didn't make it i was told i didn't see the play but i was thinking about this especially especially with the super bowl upcoming like if i were the redskins and the chiefs jazz scored to make it you know thirty eight thirty four that'd be a good game do your part of let's make it more realistic redskins twenty seven to twenty one you know and they're lining up for we probably shouldn't take the chiefs and say twenty seven twenty yeah but i but my point is if you're the chiefs in your mahomes like the mahomes russell wilson's stuff yes the fourth and fifteen isn't enough off it should be portland twenty i mean i think fourth in twenty more reflects the probability of an onside kick or increases it just slightly fourth and fifteen i dunno for mahomes wouldn't that be like thirty percent at least i yeah i mean especially when you now now against certain defenses like you're almost throwing it up and hoping for a flag if nothing else i mean he's going to do is move around a little bit and all of a sudden areas tire kills wide open all of a sudden if they adopted and i was andy reid i would at least strongly look at it doesn't matter when the game is i'm just going for because why not i know that's that's sort of my point i mean you don't want to give up field position you know at the twenty five yard line that that much but certainly i think that i don't know maybe it's fourth with an eighteen that needs to happen fourth and fifteen for certain teams in certain quarterbacks is going to be so much higher erin than the than what they're looking for the onside kick probability to be let's just say they would like onsite kicks to be recovered instead of six percent of the time which at its way down you know they want it to the whatever it used to be twelve percent eleven percent of the time fourteen percent fourth and fifteen is for too many teams is gonna be the twenty five to thirty five percent probability maybe not thirty five but i would say definitely a one in four i'd say twenty five percent chance chance for russell wilson aaron rodgers patrick mahomes certain teams and that makes that that thing too high to make football really the interesting at the same time but if i'm if i'm the team that's i i'd much rather see kansas city lineup and trying onside kick then have mahomes go for a fourth and fifteen the i think the targets on you want something that can be converted like ten to fifteen percent of the time yeah i think that's the target onside kick where it's at like three percent now or whatever you're right it's way too low that's gotten out of control the other way i think ten to fifteen where you're shooting for all right that is it we're done and for the day enjoy the rest of the day back tomorrow with tommy
