"The Tennessee star report with Steve dill and Michael Patrick layhee. The United States military our coalition partners and the Syrian democratic forces have liberated virtually all of the territory previously held by in Syria and Iraq. It should be formally announced some time probably next week that we will have a one hundred percent of the caliphate. As President Trump announcing that the success of the US military operations, particularly in the last two years when President Trump came in. He made it clear he ain't playing and they started bombing. And and responding to the ISIS Aycell forces in Syria in a way that that drove them into a small tiny corner. And they're basically now in this one town of what's left of a bombed-out town, and they're about to be completely obliterated. And now does that mean that that that same mindset that that same radical Islamist agenda, whether it's under Al Shabaab, Al Qaeda, Al Franken, Al Gore, whatever Al that they're going to operate under can't come back. Of course, they can come back. This is this is not just a typical military operation where you're fighting an army, and you reach a conclusion and everybody goes home. This isn't like World War One World War Two or career some of these other places. This is a a terror group. Essentially the that amassed people and for a time controlled large parts of Syria and Iraq. And and now they don't they had parts I guess into the Turkish areas. The question is what happens after you obliterate them. And interestingly the same Democrats that didn't want US forces to go into Afghanistan didn't want US forces boots on the ground in Syria are now apoplectic pitching a hissy fit to use a good southern term a connection fit the hissy fit. They're they're having a tantrum over the idea of pulling our forces back when we're no longer needed to engage in military combat again, the United Nations other nations, they can they can go have their troops on the ground putting their young men and women at risk. But but President Trump wanting to pull our forces back is now being attacked by both Republicans and Democrats demanding that we keep those forces there, again, they're going to be close by if we have to three engage they're going to be able to do so. But again, it's just the the hypocrisy. In Washington of of what team are you on? And unfortunately, a lot of Republicans are on the other team where you know, instead of I'll support the president whatever it does. I'll oppose the president whatever he does people are arguing over issues. They agree on simply because the other team is advancing it, and that is the biggest thing I think that's wrong in Washington. We've been talking about this whole Virginia pandemonium as well. It does have a big impact in the presidential election as well. If Virginia in the end they have off year elections. So this year, you're gonna have Kentucky elections, you're going to have Mississippi elections, you're going to have I think New Jersey and Virginia those places where you have these off year elections. What happens in Virginia? This year will have an impact in two thousand twenty Virginia has moved into a a purple to blue status, mainly because of all the federal employees in northern Virginia. The rest of the state kind of like when you look at electoral map across the country. You have the coasts, and he's got this big swath of red in Virginia. You've got this big blue part at the top of the state, and then most of the rest of the state with a few county exceptions has been read what the Democrats did by capturing fifteen seats by putting a lot of money and a lot of effort and a lot of energy into it is they swung the legislature to nearly Democratic Party control Republicans need to swing it back. If they wanna have better opportunities in twenty twenty in the presidential campaign. That's why Virginia matters not just in. What's happening? They're not just because it's fun to watch. How the Democrats are being hoisted on their own petard. But because it does have an impact for all of us based on what happens in Virginia, by the way. Republican House speaker Kirk Cox as called on the attorney general Mark carrying to resign amid his own black face scandal. Because he demanded that north them resign. And why aren't you resigning, buddy? At that is a really good point. And and the reason by the way, they're focused on hearing is. Because hearings already announced he's running for governor twenty twenty one and he was going to be running against Fairfax. Who's the black Lieutenant governor and Fairfax's all upset again. Just there's so many lines of of trails to follow in this. The the idea that this that the sex scandal was was pushed forward by somebody. That was a political rival of Fairfax to cut him off at the knees as he was getting ready to merge, be governor. And then that was gonna knock out hearing, so Pepsi, it'd be worth saying, well, maybe Marquette carrying had something to do with it some were saying, well, maybe north them had something to do with it to distract from his own stuff and say, hey, don't remove me or you get a pervert in the governor's office. Also, the the black mayor of Richmond a guy named stoney. Mayor Stony has also been planning to run for governor. And Fairfax does not want a democratic primary where you have a black powerful mayor of Richmond, a black Lieutenant governor and a white attorney general running in a democratic. Primary because if you divide up that African American vote between Stony and Fairfax, you might as well just hand the governor's nomination and probably the governor's office to Marquette. So there are so many levels of what the heck is going on here in in Virginia. Now, here's a question that that David just texted in. And this is this is for our women listeners. I mean guys can opine about this if you want, but I I would really love to hear from from women on this one the story that that miss Tyson describes Dr Tyson because like Dr. Perfect for Lieutenant governor of Virginia Justin Fairfax sexually assaulted her in a hotel room in Boston at the democratic national convention forced her to engage in oral activities literally forcing her head down holding her head down against she's very graphic in in her. Details of how he knew she was resisting. But she could not resist him and David writes in. Why wouldn't she like punch him? I mean, she's right that why we location. Yes. I mean, you can cause a guy a lot of pain when he's exposed literally and figuratively in that way. The argument today, should we believe the woman when she had the capacity to to stop it and didn't six one five seven three seven nine five to two. I know a lot of women say that in these instances you freeze, you you. You are being physically held down your overpowered, but David raises a good question. Why why wouldn't she respond by either punching him because trust me, and he got it's ever been hit down their nose that that takes your mind off of other stuff, or or you know, biting kicking scratch. I mean, there's there's a lot of things that could have been done. Is it fair to say, okay? You can't believe her because she didn't do anything. Or is it probably don't do anything when they're being sexually assaulted or raped. And and and and it's because they are being overpowered intimidated or or free six one five seven three seven nine five two to any of our female listeners. It's say a thorny issue. Public issue that will be out there in discussion in Virginia and nationally for really months to come perhaps longer. Now, his response Fairfax's response to her both in. Is criticizing her not foul language, but then even publicly coming out and attacking her. You don't attack the victim? You don't blame the victim? I think David's point is also a good question is if you even raise the question of why shouldn't didn't she do more to stop it? You're gonna get female voters in Virginia just outraged to Fairfax tries. They're already outraged at him because he has attacked her verbally in the recent days, and his language has been very demeaning and condescending, I don't think that's the I don't think that's the way you go. Will this be the situation of a Bill Cosby where okay one woman comes forward? And then a whole bunch of them come forward with with similar tales. I mean, the again is this a one and done kind of circumstance with this guy. Or did he perform this sort of behavior in other circumstances, again, I think she's very credible? I totally agree with that bit. By the same token, if if it didn't happen. As she's describing how how does he defend himself? I mean, how do you prove you didn't do something win? Again. It was consensual or appeared consensual. He's admitted he submitted to to all of the details. She's identified the place the location the time, the the the act the only thing that he hasn't admitted he says it was consensual. She says it wasn't. This is going to be on the public agenda for a long time that discussion it doesn't help Justin Fairfax. And she has made her statement, it probably doesn't help her really. But she's majoring speaking at a national summit on been abused and victimized that will draw some media attention. And also, you know, will she be treated the same way that Christine Blasi Ford was treated Christine, Blasi Ford, actually had fewer. Details and there were further in the past in her allegations against Justice. Dow Justice brick Canada and the investigation produced no indication that Cavanaugh and she had any any interconnection ever. There was no she didn't even know where it happened it happened. She knew nothing..

"He is the former mayor Minneapolis. He now is the CEO and president of the Minneapolis foundation. Raymond, Thomas Rybeck. Is here are you in trouble and somebody calls you, Raymond Thomas? Like, I know, you know, you're in trouble. If you call me, right? Yes. Like, okay. So my full name is Chadwick. And most of the time if somebody says Chadwick to me, I'm in trouble. Yeah. Most of the time if they say our TV or say, Raymond, it's usually only once, but yeah, I've just never been Raymond. So. Because we then talked about famous Raymond's, right? And we decided that the name Ray has kind of fallen out of favor. There's a reason for Tadic 'cause people who were given that name like me chose not to repeat it a lot of people. I know like Ray, I Don, I just never watch. They called me Archie all my life. So I'm I'm I've never really been a Raymond duly. Could. I by the way. Answer that quarterback quite sure can quarterbacks who played for the Vikings who were starters should have been backup. Yeah. Okay. Flipside Gary quavo, wound up being a pretty good start. Yeah. Hit he was part of that rotation. Like when Bob Lee was kind of it's it's the NBA between Francis here because they traded talking in sixty seven he comes back sixty two they have cap for the one year. I think or maybe even two years, but you had different guys. But yeah. Some I was thinking like quintessential Vikings backups, and Adam what was Steve dill's Steve dill. That's good King Harald go. Okay. Anyway. Wrap hall to go down. But it is it is. Well, we go down rat holes. Occasion. Okay. So I'm looking at your story. RT rybeck. The jujitsu of marijuana legislation. It was available online Star Tribune with weekend. It was in the actual paper on Sunday. If people still wanna read it as as someone who still is an observer politics, but not an active participant. Do you think recreational marijuana the legislation will pass this session? I I don't know whether it will pass the Senate or not I'm over at the legislature. My point was it does pass we ought to recognize that the prohibition against marijuana has been dramatically harder on communities of color, especially African Americans. And we ought to recognize that and do what we can't at least address some of the damage in legalization. I can explain that in a second. I didn't with that to get through headline, but it's sort of interesting because something that made it harder for one community could actually become something that made it easier. And here's the main point I was making. I you know, I started out with an admits. I'm talking about nineteen seventy fiftieth street smoking, I joint with a friend of mine, we weren't crowd at Lahti die. You're in the heart of, you know, some of us are in golden valley were weren't right? I was in south west, but on my way to retire. And we're in cop cars around. Yup. I had down that on Broadway. Yep. We're there are a lot more cops and a lot more percentage. Yup. I probably would have been caught had been black every statistics shows at my arrest would have been different my experience in the criminal Justice system would have been traumatically harder. And I have to admit it. If in nineteen seventy I was a black kid walking down Broadway, all of that entrance in the criminal Justice system would make Trump medically less likely. I would have become. See the Minneapolis nowadays. You gotta own that and recognize it. So what do we do? We don't just feel bad about it. We say that if marijuana gets legalized. Include three things that I said in one of them was the idea that we've got to get people out of prison who are spending long terms for low level offenses to there will be money coming in and what we ought to do is to direct some of it to create new economic opportunities for not only those coming out of jail. But those communities like north Minneapolis that have suffered the most and you can do a lot with the incredible amount of money. That's going to come out of this, and I would much rather have the resources go to places like north Minneapolis that have been negative impact it ban people like John bainer who are making knowing him stairs lobbyists to the third point. Is it may become legal? But let's not say it's wonderful any more than alcohol or tobacco or the other legal things are so let's put some money into prevention as well. And and if you were in the legislation this year, if all those things were put in place, you would vote yes. For the legal. Position. Yes. Okay. So let let let me pick up on your first bunkers. I agree. One hundred percent. There's no doubt there people. We both know and both Noel now might be the similar people who if me and you today were walking somewhere and two of our African American friends were walking right in front of us fifty yards in front of us. What would happen to them compared to us at times is completely different? And it's an awful part of our society that that continues to take place in many areas including marijuana. Let me let me pose this though, if someone is arrested and at the time marijuana was against the law. Should we have the ability to go back and twenty nineteen and say, no you're rest in twenty sixteen. We think that marijuana should be legal then so are wiping this away or we're just reducing the the offense just expand on that a little bit. Well, you know, how this is all done in the criminal Justice. There are a lot of people smarter than me. But I would say this if somebody who suffered a consequence twenty years ago because they were arrested for marijuana, and they were black and their consequences so much worse. I would imagine they've already paid a pretty pretty good price. Read I paid no price for the fact that I broke the law, and I'm not proud of this. But it's important to me to lay that out. I smoked marijuana high broke the law. I had no consequence if I had been black in those same circumstances. I would have already suffered the consequence with sound. Like you're saying into somebody. Here's a free ride people paid a big price in their communities and their future has so I think that's important. You know to me there's this other issues that I didn't get into in the article, but I used to feel this a lot as mayor. I used to think that smoking marijuana was illegal victimless. But as long as it's illegal the money that goes to at right now is going to primarily illegal gangs, many of which operated north Minneapolis. So I got a really good education of that as mayor I became very vocal to other people, especially those not in north Minneapolis saying, look, you may believe it should be legal or not. But as long as it is illegal the money that's being spent by smoking marijuana is going to gangs who are putting bullets and has the kids in north Minneapolis. The status quo is unacceptable, and we've got to change that dynamic it immediately. Get the prophet marijuana outta hand for people who are killing kits in north Minneapolis. So there's a whole lot here that is wrong with this system. And I don't. Say people should run around smoking pot all the time. But I just say get on us get it out in public and get investment in in helping communities that have suffered the most. So let me stay with that remind folks RT Rybeck is with us. The former mayor of Minneapolis now, the CEO and president of many of the Minneapolis foundations. So we are seeing huge numbers of people. Even like as you alluded to John bainer of all people John bainer on on a board of a very big company. That's pushing for the legalisation, and as more and more states have this. There will be a great deal of money made might not be as much as some people suggest, but it will be out there. And we both believe in capitalism where where is the balanced though of how much that money should be directed into areas in committees. As in our case here, north, Minneapolis. But it's not the only place where we balanced that. If a state such as Minnesota says we're going allow it, but we're gonna take. X amount and funnel it into ways to help. The folks who've been hit harder by this than others. Well, I think a percentage that's what percentage is the argument in the article, I talked about the fact quickly, but I want to expand on this can also be years to address many other races is the private industry, and that's great. But it's a regulated industry like alcohol, many lockups, so you can make choices in how you where you give licenses and I believe it should not only go to communities keep re impacted like African Americans. But also the geographies and not just north Minneapolis. We have a huge urban rural divide in this state. And one of the things we can do is to seed. Organizations there. So stop and think about this check the aren't the first state. Okay. Big little little businesses have grown into big businesses in Colorado, and California and all of that if and when we legalize in Minnesota, there's gonna be a land rest to come into here. I don't want big companies from elsewhere doing this. I want us to see businesses all around the state that that can not only grow, but add value to it like soybeans. Let the second largest crap in this state go outside of our state almost adding no value to what I mean by that is all of those ancillary businesses around that kind of agriculture that aren't are grown. Aren't being done here? So in marijuana. That's not just smoke something or eat something where the big profit is going to Colorado. Let's have someone in Marshall Minnesota. Yeah. I'm describing an example who is taking the marijuana grown in that region. Creating I dunno edibles or whatever and that having a distribution system grand marshal into the metro area into other states, and let's really get systemic about this, and and and help homegrown Minnesota create its own growth out of this new industry that is very lucrative. Okay. So so what are you going to gangs right now? Okay. So what it literally be okay? Minnesota legalizes recreational marijuana were to entrepreneurs and you live in South Dakota. And I live in Nebraska. And if we wanted to come here, the state would say, no, we're going to let entrepreneurs were based in the state of Minnesota be involved in this. No, you do what you do what you can do and what you can't do with with licensing people can do whatever they want if the private market with a couple of exceptions number one. The state can regulate they give out license for dispensaries where can you buy it? So let's let's get strategic about where we wanna grow retail activity. You can also take part of the profits from this and say, okay, what we wanna do is to have an entrepreneurial sign the state has. And we want to challenge organizations in this part of the state. I would say one set have to lose slowest economic growth right now. And let's have value added businesses staff to transportation marketing. Producing edibles, etc. Etc. Etc. So you can you can use part of it through licensing and part of it through designated money..

Shaun king since Shaun king with the Vikings Shaun king wasn't he a backup for the Vikings. Johnnie played was the buccaneers quarterback wasn't he?

"The Tennessee star report with Steve dill and Michael Patrick layhee, sadly with this shutdown. The White House is not showing respect for the American people. The senseless in prolonged shutdown is inflicting chaos across the country. I'd say the chaos on the border. That's been inflicted by folks who don't have a problem with allowing drug cartels and others to come across the border allowing legals to flood into our country and climb onto the backs and into the pockets of American taxpayers Nancy Pelosi concerned about the chaos of the shutdown. They could end it. They could end it in in a matter of moments by simply allowing the the the border security that well, our our border agents, those who actually work on the border say is essential and necessary the same sort of border security that Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer, the fellow Democrats have voted for in the past just doing a little bit more of what they've approved in the past would reopen the government this has nothing to do with their concern about the quote American people if they were concerned about the American people they'd be concerned about the people who are being killed by legally about drugs, they'd be concerned about all these other issues. This is all about messaging and positioning. And so her messages, you know, the American people are concerned about the chaos shutdowns causing so far the polls show. That American people aren't concerned the American people outside of the mainstream media and outside of Washington DC in the suburbs of northern Virginia. And Maryland aren't really concerned yet, they might be. But I think what the president's concession to Pelosi not to hold the state of the union address until after the shutdown, and whenever that is actually serves to reinforce her message. And I think it's a bad move by the president. That's just my view when you look at the way, it's playing in the media. They've they've started their drumbeat of oh woe is me. You know, these people are having to food banks. They're having to do this. They're they're suffering. Again, you're thirty days now into this. You know, most of the federal employees have just now missed their first paycheck. And I understand that most of us live paycheck to paycheck. If you if you have a disruption of that stream of income, it has an impact. So we're going to start seeing more and more people impacted it's starting to feel the pain. But you're also gonna see that pain intensify on the Democrats in the congress in the house that are controlling the I guess today. We're gonna see the vote in the US Senate on the Trump plan. And you know, we'll see if Democrats in the Senate will decide they want to reopen the government by giving more border security giving some reef relief to the so-called dreamers to allow them a period of of of not being deported from the country while they try to work out, a broader immigration reform plan for the country there. There's a lot in this package that is a modification of the president's position that has been put forward the senate's gonna vote on it. The house Nancy Pelosi isn't gonna even wanna let this come up because she doesn't want her members of congress actually go on the record voting against giving some sort of temporary benefit temporary relief to the dreamers. So she's gonna not even she's going to do the same thing. She's doing with the state of the union. No vote. No, no progress. We're just going to do. The way I want to do it. It's my way or the highway and again, the Trump administration needs to do a much better job. I think of of laying out this is what's happening. And so Scott Wallace are sports editor at the Tennessee star and Nashville metro editor Nancy Pelosi says that the shutdown is currently causing chaos around the country. I don't see it. But maybe you see it. I haven't seen. Anybody jump off a bridge. I mean, people are suffering because of it, and and and you know, and and I think that a lot of times people speak in. They're not supposed to speak in Pelosi. I'm sure Nancy Pelosi. I'm not sure that she knows what's really going on. And what's going down? You know, there's a lot of. But you know, what the what the what the shutdown? There's a lot of people that's coming together. A lot of people that are helping other people out my wife here, you the do a story on that. And just be looking out for that some government workers. Maybe ten teaser teasing watched five thirty five thirty and FOX seventeen by the way. This is what media supposed? That's right. That's right. The Tennessee star report radio program point three and fifteen ten w LLC Tennessee star Tennessee, star dot com box seventeen on television. Right. We want you to watch Harriet at five thirty tonight because she's gonna say what? I don't know what she's going to say. But he's going to do a story on that on the government shutdown CC's interviewing different people on putting something together. So, and it is showing what the the help that people are coming together and things like that happened yet people that come and help. And that's the thing about this city this state in this country. We always come together during times that the people are in need. I think where you're going to see people start to feel the pain is as this this shutdown continues. I mean, one of the ways that people are affected by the federal government in a direct ways. If you go to the airport, and there's the TSA guys they're checking the luggage checking you'd have to go through and get groped in gripped as you as you go through the process, if if all of the sudden after two months, for example, we go another month. I mean, people can miss a few paychecks and say, look, you know, we're we're going to keep showing up. But at some point you've got to get some income in for your family, and you're going to see these TSA folks, I think starting to figure out look, you know, I may be getting paid forty grand a year. Maybe I can find another forty grand a year job out there. You're going to see people start to leave not call in sick. Like some have done to try and make the point but actually have to pursue another job because they've got to get some paycheck's coming in. And the fact that, you know, a month two months three months from now, I'm going to get back pay for what I've done for the folks that aren't working aren't having to go in and work who know that they're going to get their paycheck when the shutdown ends it. It's not it's stressful for them that they're not getting paychecks coming in. But they're also. Not going into work. The TSA folks are going in and doing their job intra were not getting paid right now. And the fact that they're going to get paid next month or the month after isn't any any comfort for the folks at at their mortgage company or the gas company or trying to put gas in their car to get to work. They're going to have to make a decision on how they get some income in for their family, and they're going to have to leave that job. And when all of a sudden, we show up at the airport and there's five TSA agents instead of fifty then somebody it's going to impact twenty there. I used to work before the TSA came and I used to work airport security. So I know how strenuous that job was and how we needed to have people in there, and you know, just to have that to to happen. And to say, I'm not gonna get paid or it may not make you want to do your job as hard, or as you know. So let me ask you to stress. Also, it's already stressful. People are going to be waiting in line. And and they're going to be on edge. And then you've got a TSA employees. You can get I think more conflict in our airport. Yeah. And very interesting. I here's what I don't know. And we have sub college. They're going to weigh in on this shortly. What I don't know. Steve is you know, what a secretary of the treasury Mnuchin doing? I mean, there are ways to set up financing mechanisms so that outside the government financial institutions which could arrange for temporary financing. I don't see any of that creative thought going on here. I think that would be a solution. But what do you say Steve? Well, and and you've got, you know, things like the national zoo, and museums that are closed down. I don't think that's affecting a lot of regular working Americans living in Ohio or Tennessee. But TSA in some of these other things do and and when you look at okay, what touches us what can the government do to? To start bringing some relief. I mean, they've made some some decisions that for example, the coast guard's going to keep getting paid great decision. They they should be included. Like the army the navy the air force the marines. They they're on the frontlines of our national security the ice agents, those people on border security should be paid. Why is it TSA being paid as? As as as well as some of these others big John Smith on the phone lines. You're on the Tennessee star report. Jon good to have you with us. Good morning. Stephen paddock.

"More of the Tennessee star report with Steve dill and Michael Patrick layhee. Was a tragic story out of Houston, Texas when seven year old jasmine Barnes was killed in in what was described as a drive by shooting. They started having these Justice for jasmine rallies as as a police sketch was released of a of a white male in his thirties or forties. That was that was the suspect they were seeking. Then then they arrested the two black males responsible ones already confessed and admitted the police are now saying it it may have been a case of mistaken identity that the shooter's allegedly fired at the wrong vehicle and that the family were innocent victims when you look at the individuals, go to Breitbart dot com, they've got a great story up to chose the individuals. Eric black charged with capital murder in the death of seven-year-old jasmine Barnes, he's twenty years old. And then the second suspect is Larry Woodruff twenty four. He's actually believed to be the the shooter. Eric said, hey, I I was there was in the car. But it was my my buddy that did the shooting. Neither one of them looks anywhere near like the police sketch the blame the white guy again, you had these racially motivated Justice for jasmine rallies where hundreds were were were demanding Justice when they thought it was a white guy. Now, that's two black guys. No, more Justice for jasmine rallies. They they don't need Justice for jasmine now that it's not something that the media can turn into a a race based hate crime. Now, it's just a crime, and and no big deal because it was black guys killing a young black girl rather than than a white guy. Therefore, it's it's no big deal. This is part of the problem with the way, we're we're seeing this crime and violence when black on black crime happens every weekend to the tune of six seven eight people killed in shootings in Chicago, one of those gun-free zones, Washington DC gun-free when you look at Nashville Tennessee and the number of shooting, and and violent incidents that are taking place on a regular basis in this community. Bleeding over into the surrounding communities. You don't hear much about it? Now when it when it bleeds into green hills. And and it's black on white crime. We hear more about it. Bleeds into Brentwood amount. Juliette? We hear more about it. But you don't hear much about it? When black young men or killing other young black men. You don't hear the pastors preaching about it from the pulpits and black churches? You don't hear the politicians railing about it because it's not something they can use to motivate votes for black politicians, and and and for Democrats who will scream and rail about what's happening in in Archimedes. We got to stop the guns. Get twenty year old black man in Houston. He's below the age to be able to buy a handgun. So he didn't get illegal. He's breaking the law. You have this case here in Nashville where a police officer shot and killed Mr. Hamrick shot him in the back as he was fleeing that Mr. Hamrick had a long rap sheet, multiple felonies, he's running from police with a gun in his hand. With a gun in his hand. The first of all you shouldn't have a gun because he's a at least once or twice convicted felon was facing additional felony charges when you look at this guy's rap sheet. You have to ask yourself. Why was he out? Why are we letting people that have this kind of violent criminal past out? Maybe one and done is too harsh that you know, once you commit one felony you never get out. But I'd say about your second or third. What happens two to three strikes and you're out and particularly when you have felonies, violent felonies. And this guy's a young guy. He's been in and out so quickly. He's never served any serious time. He's running for police with a gun in his hand. Now, the prosecutors are saying well he shouldn't have been shot in the back by the police. The black community is upset because it's a white officer shooting a young black man with a long felony rap sheet. I think the prosecutors need to answer. And certainly if I was on the jury I'd be demanding they answer if he wasn't planning on using the weapon the gun. Why did he pull it out of his waistband? Why wasn't he running from police full speed with the gun still in his waistband if he wasn't planning on using the gun? Why was it in his hand? If he was a painting on using the gun. Why didn't he drop it while he was running and and be able to police to see clearly he didn't have a gun in his hand. Right. Didn't he clearly toss it while he was running in which case the police who were instructing him dropped the gun. Why didn't he drop the gun? Now, you should shoot people in the back. That's the way it is in the old west should never shoot. A you should never be a back shooter. And I think there is legitimate questions about this police officer of were you in threat when you're chasing somebody who's running away from you. He's not running towards you. It's not like the Ferguson case where where the guy was coming towards the cop that's a different situation. So there's a lot of questions on both sides. But you cannot say that this guy was just an innocent victim when he is armed illegally and running illegally disobeying, the police officers and with a gun in his hand. It doesn't take a moment to turn and fire. The problem with the situation. So Steve, as you know, is that these are questions of law that need to be investigated. What were the facts? All of these cases, end up being politicized. And here in Nashville with the onset of the civilian review board, you're going to see every one of these cases just some of them just if it's if it's white on black police officer, if it's a black on white, you're not going to see any any hue and cry from the oversight board. But you will see politicize politicize ation of these kinds of cases, which is not a good thing. Because you know, there there are so many facts that need to be understood these kinds of cases need to be adjudicated in a in a courtroom with evidence and not in the court of public opinion. Which is where this review board is going to be taking thanks or politicians fearful that if they do the right thing that they're going to be held accountable, regardless of what the facts are political pressure outside. This is this is why you're seeing police officers. Retire in Nashville. They're not being replaced yard seeing top-quality folks. Want to apply to become police officer in too many cases, they're having a hard time recruiting because why would you wanna go into a community where they're not going to back? The cops are not going to back the blue. Now. That's exactly the point. Here isn't it because we need police, and it's a very dangerous job. Why should you undertake a dangerous job for adequate bay? But certainly not a lot of money and put your life on the line. When you now if you're involved in a shooting incident. That in many cases every single action that you take in real time. Split-second decisions will be analyzed in great detail for months by dozens of people many of whom don't care about Justice, but care about the political outcome. Well, in those that are driving this particular case in Nashville are not looking at the fact that police with a simple traffic stop. Yeah. You didn't turn your blinker on you you rolled through a stop sign. Just a simple traffic. Stop is what led to Ronald sing in California getting getting shot as he walked up to the car all of a sudden the shots blaze out, and he's dead the criminals, don't say, hey, stop, or I'll shoot they don't follow the same rules that the police do. That's right. So so when you're walking up to that car when you're chasing that suspect, you don't you don't know that there's not one of his buddies around the next corner waiting opened up on you don't know, whether it's an ambush. They don't know whether that guy's gonna turn spin and fire or fire over his shoulder and hits you in the head and leave your family. Again, when the police tell you to stop there's a good way to not get shot out here. Whether you're white black Asian Hispanic Auriemma wherever you are. If you stop and obey the police instructions, you're not seeing a lot of cops just killing people at random when they follow and comply because the police are trying to figure out whether you're a danger and a threat to them or others when you comply with their orders. You might not like it. Maybe you don't think you rolled the stop sign. But if you start getting back, and it looks like this could be a case where I get shot as I'm walking up to the door. You're asking for trouble. And this is the same advice. I would give to young white men. Young white girls young black girls. Young black men young Hispanic men and women win the police tell you you don't get out of the car put your hands on the steering wheel turn on your interior light. So I can see what I'm dealing with. Because it's a late night traffic stop. I don't know. Whether you're a cartel guy. Waiting to gun me down. I don't know whether. You're a terrorist with a bomb in the back of your car. I don't know what you are. So why don't you act and behave like somebody who is not a danger to reduce the threat? Do you enter the police officer, this is not hard stuff? And yet in the background every time you've got the human cry that those that as you point out want to politicize it in order to get some sort of a political gang to to create some sort of a a race division a race war in this country. And folks if that's what you want. We're going to get there. Well, the other thing here in Nashville is so here, you have police officers who really aren't being backed up and each each case has very specific elements to it as to whether it was right or wrong thing to do. But in addition, they're not getting their promise pay raise. And she just why would anybody want to volunteer for that job as a conditions continued to get worse and worse for them. And we saw the same sort of thing in in military conflict as well when our troops in Afghanistan. Iraq. And other places are under rules of engagement that you can't shoot until they're shooting at you. While the first couple of shots. They fire off before you take them down are the ones that are gonna kill us. The rules of engagement should be protect our cops. Protect our soldiers..

"Now, more of the Tennessee star report with Steve dill and Michael Patrick layhee decision on Syria in no way, changes anything that this administration is working on alongside Israel the counter. Isis campaign continues our efforts to counter rainy digression continue and our commitment to Middle East ability in the protection of Israel continues. In the same way did for that decision was made. While the Democrats continue to have their hue and cry about what an awful, president, President Trump is the the unemployment rates continue to reach record, low levels, black, Hispanic nationally. The impact of the tax cuts will start to be felt as people start filling out their tax returns for last year when the tax cuts actually go into effect for individuals. So as people start seeing that they're going to be getting more money back when they file their tax returns this year that's going to provide an economic boom, you see folks that are Trump like in their policies their populist conservative approach to things in Europe in Brazil, a new president in Brazil was sworn in yesterday Bolsonaro who has been called the Trump of the tropics. You've got Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea. Saying, hey, I'm ready to meet in continue to move ahead with our conversations with. Pelosi. Yeah. You can negotiate with a brutal dictator, but you can't negotiate with the Democrats because brutal dictators are actually easier to find common ground within the Democrats. And then you've got China. What if we heard for the last several months about how the trade war with China was gonna devastate our economy? What's what's hurt the economy and hurt the stock market has been the Democrats taking control of the house and people realize that there's not going to be more tax cuts. There's not going to be any more progress in terms of of revitalizing our economy because the Democrats are going to block anything and everything because they're willing to hurt America to try to help their political fortunes, and yet you've got China now buying rice from the United States opening up their markets to more agricultural products. Hundreds of thousands of tons of soybeans being shipped to China. The bear barriers to trade the tariff barriers Egide are being reduced as President Trump said would happen. President Trump is winning in trade winning with the with the. Revised NAFTA agreement winning with negotiations with the Kim Jong UN winning at every level, except where he has to depend on Democrats to actually care about America more than they care about illegal aliens. And that was a big national story in two thousand eighteen really big. And you're not seeing the national media cover, these these trade issues and other things that are winning now the Tennessee star, of course, covers things both local as well as national and last year there were about ten to twelve stories at attracted major major views on the Tennessee star, Tennessee star dot com, and what were some of the top stories that that we dealt with last year's we look into this Milstar from number fourteen and move up actually eight of our top fourteen stories were about from Tennessee about Tennessee, six of more national interest. When you say top stories, what's the traffic calculation traffic is based upon our Google analytics and Facebook shares a combination more the Google analytics and Facebook shit will share the Facebook number two really big actually, our traffic is just kept growing and growing. And growing by the way, if you've not gone and liked Tennessee star on Facebook, go to Tennessee star on Facebook. We're at about nine thousand like we're pretty close. So we need about twenty more. I think this morning. So if you've not already liked Tennessee star on Facebook gun, Tennessee, star on Facebook and just be sure to like it and then share it with your friends. So that we can continue to bump those numbers, and then the website, Tennessee, star dot com is is also seeing huge numbers over a million amongst apple going and viewing the stories and growing. Yeah. Which is not good news for Republicans and Democrats in Tennessee who want to pretend that well. That's just the Tennessee star saying that nobody pays any attention to that only a million views a month. Well, other than that, nobody pays attention. I think a lot of people pay attention to the Tennessee star. So Mark Brayden said about the tennis star and the political folks on Capitol Hill in Tennessee. There are two classes of folks. Those who read the Tennessee star each and every day and those who do, but then Lyon say, they don't think it's probably true. So the the fourteenth most popular story Bedford county asks for ice help on illegal immigrant activity that had a little over three thousand sheets that was what they were doing the Mexican rodeos that led to the death of a of a of an innocent woman is by a drunk driving illegal who then disappeared the thirteenth. Most popular story leftist. Protesters kick scream punch at Nashville rally for for Marsha Blackburn, featuring Lindsey Graham nineteen thousand Facebook shares. Pretty good. Yeah. By the way, just as an aside. You'll notice that our headlines are different than most other news outlets headlines. We're more specific we tend to be longer. And the reason is this helps Facebook shares because the longer headline combined with a really stunning headline image serves as a medium that can be shared easily. That's why we do that. Because basically the headline tells you what's going to be in the store. Exactly right with great specificity number twelve governor, Phil Bredesen's cut elderly sick and disabled from ten care while enrolling refugees, twenty four thousand Facebook, Democrats are so much more morally superior to Republicans because they really care about the poor the sick. Yeah. And the elderly. Yeah. Except when it comes to actually doing something for the poor the sick or the elderly. They're great at talking about it. But then, you know, blaming Republicans when their policies produce bad results number eleven Bredesen's smirks, quote, a few thousand very poor people. Coming to our border is not a threat to our national security. Didn't help them that police officer from Oakland who was murdered over the weekend. And you know, Nancy Pelosi and took Schumer and and governor Brown and the incoming governor cavalry.

"Now, more of the Tennessee star report with Steve dill and Michael Patrick layhee. And welcome back in. This is the Tennessee star report. Steve Gill, Michael Patrick layhee here with you late night. But we're here we we make we make close, but we never does seven three seven nine five two to the phone number winners and losers. A couple in doubt throw out a couple and feel free to dive in with with your thoughts of who were big winners and big losers last night. The the Republicans in Tennessee in the state house looks like they picked up maybe a net of one or maybe a net loss of one, but super majorities retained by the state house in the state Senate in Tennessee, despite through the Democrats making their big claims of a Blue Wave, and they were recruiting more candidates and spending more money. Liberal extremists Mary Mancini and Mark Brown have have run the Tennessee Democratic Party into the ground. And I was doing channel to last night with Bruce Dobie, and he was shell shocked by the numbers, the margin that Bresson and Kharaldine got defeated. Just absolutely drubbed. And how do you set up? A forward movement for the Democratic Party in Tennessee. The left is going to say, we ran moderates and see what happened and the is they ran moderates with Tennessee's conservative, and the Tennessee Democratic Party is apparently gonna move even more socialist to the left which will not bode well for Tennessee Democrats, or for the state of Tennessee, y'all have a competitive two party system. If you're going to bring out the best in the political arena, and the Democrats have just vacated the field as we saw those numbers. So for for Glenn Kasinga who was a driving force for for the house. They lost Eddie Smith over Knoxville lost Gloria Johnson in a in a race. They've been going back and forth. And it's been it's been close. Every time. Tommy Vallejo's did not win up in in the Clarksville area. Clarksville is turning a little bit more blue than I think a lot of folks would would like, and they did not pick up that one coach bird in western ac-, prevailed one the Democrats left they were going to pick that seat up. Craig fitzhugh vacating his seat to run for governor Republicans picked up. That one. So the Republican supermajority rains in in effect, and Glenn Kasinga Robin Smith and their team. Did did a great job. We'll talk more about polling and pollsters got absolutely obliterated here. Tennessee east Tennessee State university middle Tennessee State university. Vanderbilt polls built so far off the Mark awful. Again, what they need to just disband their minds department in the polling business. They could focus all their the resources on maybe football at vandy instead seven three seven nine five two two other big loser. By the way, Taylor swift yet another man she picks turns out to be a disappointment seven three seven nine five two. Let's go to next Wayne, you're on the Tennessee star report with Steve Geller, Michael Patrick layhee. Hi, guys. I haven't even heard this soft on the national level. But I'm Anne how many Republican congressman retired and did not run with forty something was about forty which opened up a lot of open seats in districts that were lean blue or that Hillary Clinton had carried. That's why the it was almost a guarantee that the Democrats were going to pick up the Twenty-three they needed just because we had vacated seats that we could not hang onto as Republicans in districts that that they were going to pick up. Here's the good news, though, two years from now with Nancy Pelosi in Maxine Waters in the nitwit crazy loonies running their show. I think you'll get a forty to fifty seat. Swing back with Donald Trump on the ballot. And today and tomorrow, I may take today off in the next couple of days. I wanna go through those house seats that the Democrats one where are the ones that they won by two points or less, and that's the twenty or thirty Republicans need start targeting about Thursday. Yeah. You know, you look at the power historically of the incumbent, and it's more done. No matter who it is where you are. So those forty stayed in it in ruin yeah. We took some losses, but they only they only gain a majority by three votes for three feet. So Republicans probably have hung on had all of those people not retired for whatever reason. But so it's really not it's clearly not a referendum against President Trump is just the fact that so many Republicans stepped down at this election. That's really the issue. But that's not going to be talked about it. They don't claim victory if they credit and. When it wasn't deserving. Donald Trump carried the day. There would have been a serious Blue Wave if Donald Trump had not gone out and made the election about Donald Trump. That's how Republicans picked up seats in the Senate. It's how they they reduced the number of seats that the Democrats took they're gonna end up about thirty three thirty four net gain. So they're gonna have about a twenty point gap with ten ten more than they need to surpass the to eighteen or so so they're going to have a small minority and keep in mind, you have about twenty five Democrats who've said they're not gonna vote for Nancy Pelosi. So is the first thing they do when they go to Washington prove themselves to be liars or do they go to Washington and improved a Nancy Pelosi? They can't be counted. Upon either way, it's not a good move for them. I'll tell you when the other big losers Wayne Republicans lost a lot of governors races and the governor's races. They should have one. Now, where we're Donald Trump went in like, Georgia, and Florida and other states he saved the day looks. Like Republicans may pick up Connecticut, which would be a huge win. But lost seats Ohio was a big win. Because as you looked at twenty twenty that matters but Republicans lost congressional or lost governors races. Do you know who was running the Republican congressional or the Republican governors campaign nationally? Bill Hasler Bill has lem. You know, he's the one that helped us take it in the shorts in those governor's races. His campaign team didn't do what what should have been done to win. Those governor's races. Positive things. Jane was.

"Taxes still under audit. I know that a number of his taxes are still in the nineties and early two thousand. Get back to you. Provide accidents plans to do with more on President Trump's taxes. We're joined on the phone here in Washington with David Farren, hold who covers the president's finances for the Washington Post. What's developed since this New York Times story first broke? Well, you're clearly seeing a political fallout which is the Democrats on Capitol Hill calling for now. For the release of President Trump's tax returns. I think that's the Democrats if they take one or both houses of congress in the fall, certainly will demand President Trump's tax returns and use their authority to get them. That was probably guaranteed before yesterday. But it's certainly now the legal consequences for the Trump organization are centered for now in New York state, whichever time delegations are true boss out of millions of dollars of unpaid taxes taxes are taxes. It should have been paid by board. So the New York State Department of taxation has begun an inquiry into the allegations. And the time story we see a lot more on that coming days you've had a chance to review the New York Times story they point out that they reviewed over one hundred thousand pages of records. What's your takeaway? Well, what we take away about. Fred Trump, the president's father, which is that he spent much of his life apparently scheming. Aswin legal to avoid taxes and both avoid taxes on himself. But also to pass along to his children, particularly on Donald without getting hit by the taxes that would normally occur companies such gifts we learned about the president was that from a very early age. He is in bragging about how he built his company himself. He is you know, these rich, but he's a self made, man. My father gave me only one small one million dollar loan that I had to pay back that seems to be completely false teams like his father has a head funnel money to him throughout his career into his forties fifties, and that in many cases, what Trump himself the president was doing and business was not providing much of any income in fact many fail. The had to be bailed out by his father's more steady business. So the myth of Donald Trump is kind of the self-made millionaire billionaire is not true. You point something out that those who have seen pictures from the Oval Office or Ben in the Oval Office. Also noticed there are two. Family portraits on the credential directly behind the president. Can you elaborate? Yes. The only to President Trump has a very sparsely decorated Oval Office man known for sparse decoration in general. But he's Oval Office. There's a pretty sparse decoration and the two portrait sustained out our portraits of his mother, Mary and his father, Fred. Looking over his shoulder as he said to the president's desk. So to get a sense of the rule that his father played in his life, his image of himself. You only have to look there. And in your piece available at Washington Post dot com. You quote, Tony Schwartz. He co wrote the art of the deal back in one thousand nine hundred seven what did he tell you about all of this? Basically, there's nothing is more important to Trump psychically than this. This miss apparently. Amidst all his success was earned that he worked for everything that it was his brains his daring, his his work hard, work, sweat and made him wealthy entry point to be shown that his basically his entire legacy. Was it entire fortune was just basically a gift from his father that he may have mismanaged. He'd been better off just investigating the stock market in the last thirty years on the beach that is particularly hurtful to the president's image of himself. You cover the Trump family and his business interests tell us about Fred Trump, his father. The Trump was somebody. You get started in not very glamorous part of real estate, but a very profitable part of real estate. He built low rise apartment complexes in Brooklyn, queens. The outer boroughs of New York City in time in the city when people maximum were two there was a huge growth in that area of New York, and he may Khanna money off these sort of drab, but very functional apartment complexes in. I should say a lot of that money came from the federal government which provided him with Federal Housing stipends. So this this story show is that we knew that part of the story that he'd made his money and kind of unglamorous way. And then his sons innovation was take Trump name Trump business from queens to Manhattan and go into this sort of big money downtown New York real estate. We didn't know about Trump until yesterday was it he'd spent a lot of his career scheming to basically avoid taxes. And a lot of his work was was trying to pass money taste children. While voting any as much federal income taxes, you can one of the most amazing stories in that New York Times piece was created basically fake company that looked like a middleman, we're Fred Trump would pay this middleman who had been pay the vendors provided cleaning services in boilers and repairs and other things too for Trump's building. But really what would that company was designed to do was to skim money out along the way? So if we're going to buy a boiler for a thousand dollars he'd pay middleman two thousand dollars and then the middleman company which was owned by Donald Trump and the other from children would keep the difference between the real price in the inflated price. So long running company set up merely for the purpose of avoiding gift taxes and funneling money Trump's descendants. We're talking with David Farren hold of the Washington Post. The story really focuses on the nineteen ninety s as somebody who has been following this for many many years what questions remain. Well, the questions that that stand out to me, I mean beyond the question of what consequences these revelations about the nineteen nineties. We'll have legally what happened after two thousand four. So the story says that President Trump's sort of elapsed father died in two thousand and this last pulse of money from his father's business came in two thousand four which President Trump sold that business and use the money to pay off a bunch of cash obligations. He had sitting unpaid in New Jersey in Chicago places. So what happened after that? When President Trump was on his own without this source of money from his father that apparently had kept him afloat for so many years. How did he get money? How did he support his empire? There's some really strange financial tactics. President Trump took starting after two thousand four and I hadn't been able to understand what that you why they started. Then maybe this is part of the explanation. He was looking for other sources of money now that his father's money was gone. And it may explain why he has yet to release his tax returns. Absolutely. I think it was his tax returns for. Fifteen years. We might understand a lot more about how he replaced the stream of money from his father more details. Available in today's Washington Post.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill the president's nominee to oversee the census bureau is declining to give his opinion on the administration's decision to add a citizenship question to the twenty two thousand census if confirmed Steve Dilling ham would oversee the once a decade census that will determine how many seats in congress each state receives and how hundreds of billions of tax dollars are distributed. But adding a citizenship question has provoked fears that some will not participate the decision also facing a number of lawsuits here is Montana. Senator Steve Daines with a question to the nominee you support including the citizenship question the census, and if so what benefits might come with it. Senator I have no plans to voice an opinion on that question. I think it would not be advisable in my position if I'm confirmed to be the director of the census bureau. The decision is I understand it will be determined by the courts and be my responsibility confirmed to administer the descend you'll census in accordance inconsistent with that you digital decision. So it would be problematic. I think to take a public position on that question Stephen deli ham. The president's dominate ahead up the census bureau his confirmation hearing earlier today before the Senate homeland security committee at the White House, the national security adviser John Bolton announcing the administration is in the process of reviewing all international agreements that could expose it to binding decisions by the international court of Justice calling the United Nations Oregon politicized and ineffective. Here's some background the Hague-based court, which is also known as the world court handed a victory to Tehran, which argued that sanctions imposed since may by the administration of President Trump violate the terms of a one thousand nine hundred fifty five treaty of amity between the two countries will earlier today. The secretary state Mike Pompeo announced that the US would terminate. That treaty with Iran, which does regulate economic and consular ties between the two countries. Mike Pompeo said the move was long overdue thirty nine years overdue ties between the two nations have been strained for decades. But have come to a head since the president pulled the plug out of that two thousand fifteen Iran nuclear deal. Here's the national security adviser John Bolton. Earlier today secretary of state Pompeo peyot made a very important announcement regarding the presence decision to terminate the nine hundred fifty five treaty of amity with Iran a treaty. Iran made a mockery of with its support for terrorism provocative ballistic missile, proliferation and maligned behavior throughout the Middle East. Today's decision by the international court of Justice was a defeat for a run it correctly rejected nearly all of Iran's request. We're disappointed that the ICJ failed to recognize that it has no jurisdiction to issue any water with respect to sanctions the United States imposes to protect its own essential security under the trading instead the court allowed Iran to use it as a forum for propaganda. The Iranian regime has systematically pursued a policy of hostility toward the United States. The defames the central premise of the treaty of amity the regime cannot practice animosity and its conduct and then ask for amity under international law. In addition to the treaty of amity. I am announcing that the president has decided that the United States withdrawal from the optional protocol and dispute resolution to the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations. This is in connection. With a case brought by the so-called state of Palestine naming the United States is a defendant challenging our move of our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Like the stress. The United States remains a party to the underlying Vienna convention on diplomatic relations, and we expect all other parties to abide by their international obligations under the convention. Our actions today are consistent with the decisions. President Reagan made in one thousand nine hundred eighty s in the wake of the politicized suits against the United States by Nicaragua to terminate our acceptance of the optional compulsory jurisdiction of the international court of Justice under article thirty six two the I C J statute and his decision to withdraw from a bilateral treaty with Nicaragua that announcement earlier today from John golden he is the president's national security advisor last year more than seventy two thousand Americans died as a result of a drug overdose opioid is one of the leading factors today.

But we do know, and that's why we have had an urgent bipartisan consensus on this contributions from five Senate committees, seventy two different senators are reflected in this Bill. That's why we have an urgent bipartisan consensus because we want to do everything we can do to provide tools to parents and take patients patients and doctors and nurses in communities and governors anyone we can find to.

"Taxes still under on it. I know that a number of his taxes are still in the nineties in early two thousand get back to you. Silly provide any of his tax returns wearing plans to do. So with more on President Trump's taxes. We're joined on the phone here in Washington with David Farren hold who covers the presence finances for the Washington Post. What's developed since this New York Times story first broke? Well, clearly seeing a political fallout which is Democrats on Capitol Hill calling for now. For the release of President Trump's tax returns. The Democrats if they take one or both houses of congress in the fall, certainly will demand President Trump's tax returns and use their thirty to get them. That was probably guaranteed before yesterday that it's certainly teed now the legal consequences for the Trump organization centered for now in New York state, whichever saving time delegations are true lost out of millions of dollars of unpaid tax taxes, our taxes, it should have been paid by board. So the New York State Department of taxation has begun an inquiry into the allegations, and the time story we'd see a lot more on that in the coming days. You've had a chance to review the New York Times story they point out that they reviewed over a hundred thousand pages of records. What's your takeaway? Well, we take away about Fred Trump, the president's father, which is that he spent much of his life apparently scheming possibly to avoid taxes and both avoid taxes on himself. But also to pass money along to his children. Particularly his son Donald without getting hit by the taxes that would normally companies such gifts. We learned about the president was that from a very early age. He had been bragging about how he built his company himself. He is. Rich, but he's self made man, he's always said to my father gave me only one small one million dollar loan. I had to pay back that seems to be completely false teams. Like, his father has a head funnel money to him throughout his career into his forties and fifties, and in many cases, what Trump himself the president was doing and business was not providing much of any income in fact fail the heavy build out by his father's more steady business. So the myth of Donald Trump is kind of a self-made millionaire billionaire is not true. You point something out that those who have seen pictures from the Oval Office or Ben in the Oval Office. Also noticed there are two family portrait's on the credential directly behind the president can you elaborate? Yes, they're the only to President Trump has a very sparsely decorated Oval Office. Man known for sparse decoration in general. But in his Oval Office. There's a pretty sparse decoration and the two portrait sustained out or portrait of his mother, Mary and father Fred looking over his shoulder as he said to the president's desk. So to get a sense of the rule that his father played in his life and his image of self. You only have to look there. And in your piece available at Washington Post dot com. You quote, Tony Schwartz. He co wrote the art of the deal back in one thousand nine hundred seven what did he tell you about all of this? Basically, the nothing is more important to come psychically than this. This myth apparently a myth that all his success was earned that he worked for everything that it was his brains his daring, his his work, hard, work, sweat and made him wealthy. And to the point to be shown his basically the entire legacy. Was it entire fortune was just basically a gift from his father that he may have mismanaged better off just investing in the stock market in new spending the night last thirty years on the beach that is particularly hurtful to the president's image of himself. You cover the Trump family and his business interests tell us about Fred Trump, his father. Trump was somebody who get started in not very glamorous part of real estate, but a very profitable part of real estate. He built low rise apartment complexes in Brooklyn. And queens, the outer boroughs of New York City at a time in the city when people who maximum for two there was a huge growth in that area of New York, and he made a ton of money off these sort of drab, but very functional apartment complexes in. I should say a lot of money also came from the federal government which provided him with Federal Housing stipends. So this this story shows that we knew that part of the story that he'd made his money, and this unglamorous way, and the sons innovation was to take your name Trump business from queens to Manhattan and go into this sort of big money downtown New York real estate. We didn't know about Trump until yesterday was it he spent a lot of his career scheming to basically avoid taxes. And a lot of his work was was trying to pass money taste children. While avoiding any as much federal income taxes. You can one of the most amazing stories in that New York Times piece was created basically company that looked like a middleman, we're for Trump would pay this middleman who had been pay the vendors provided cleaning services in boilers and repairs and other things before Trump's building. But really what what that company was designed to do with the skim money out along the way. So if Trump was going to buy a boiler for a thousand dollars, he paid his middleman two thousand dollars and then the middleman company which was owned by Donald Trump and the other children children would eat the difference between the real price in the inflated price. So long running companies set up merely for the purpose of avoiding gift taxes. And. Jumps to send us we're talking with David Farren, hold of the Washington Post. The story really focuses on the nineteen ninety s as somebody who has been following this for many many years what questions remain. Well, the questions that stand out to me. I mean beyond the question. What consequences these revelations about the nineteen nineties? We'll have legally what happened after two thousand four. So the story says that President Trump's sort of a last bother died in two thousand last pulse of money from his father's business came in two thousand four which President Trump sold that baseball. There's business and use the money to pay off a bunch of cash obligations. He had sitting unpaid in New Jersey in Chicago and other places. So what happened after that? What President Trump was on his own without this source of money from his father that apparently had kept him afloat for so many years. How did he get money? How did he support his empire? And there's a really strange financial tactics that President Trump took starting after four, and I hadn't been able to understand what that you why they started. Then maybe this is part of the explanation. He was looking for other sources of money now that his father's money was gone in as plane why he has yet to release his tax returns, absolutely sector turns for. Senator fifteen years, we might understand a lot more about how he replaced the stream of money from his father more details. Available in today's Washington Post. Thank you for being with us.

"Seven forty one WC show tough night for the twins. Actually, a pretty good game to just was a bad. First inning for Trevor may five to choose a final twins lost down at Houston. They'll play tonight here on W C C O. And it was a little scary there from Galveston. Oh, they cart him off the field. Maxine last I heard it was maybe just a bruise. But I don't know if we've gotten the official report yet. Yeah. Funny is his back leg there. Guys cartons base there. He was down for so long. Pain that you said all this could be a serious something, and it could be I mean, bruises can be serious taking me they can take a long time to heal from specially September of thing. But he is a little bit injury-prone that big body doesn't move fluid has many many athletes do and then when he gets you things like sliding and things like that. It's a little bit of a danger and he has been injury prone. And I think he will continue to be because of that just weighs body is is body makeup, as, you know, lost some weight, we still carries a lot and guys like that. Or in baseball news. They're prone to dangerous like that. So they have to consider going forward with him and his future. Yeah. No doubt about that. And and so they window plaguing tonight. The saints got rain LSF. They're starting the playoffs tonight. First time this season, they got rained out. So they'll move it back tonight. And then tomorrow, again, the one thing I want folks knows your tickets for last night's game are good for Thursday night's game. Yeah, they're playing Jerry. And it was a crazy ending. The season. They were they had to sit and watch and see if you're he wandering lost losses. Whether or not your home to start or getting out of shortly. It was one of those deals at the end of the year. So you a lot of drama at the end there for the saints, and Gary to figure would be going to Gary Gary coming here on this week to start. But yeah, they didn't they had a good season overall. They didn't say they would love to one a little bit more at the end the whole field for because they had three Gary, but still they're well positioned than they had the playoffs coming down, you know, people think summer summer schedule, but Nope during the playoffs now that's a good time to get a good ticket. Any news about our Vikings coming up Sunday against San Francisco. Interesting is subtracted this door could end up being the center. Mike Zimmer was asked about him is playing a little bit of senators very natural the position now there's some conversation that he could be in the conversation to be the starting Santa Claus picked up Jones and L Fleiss by not ready to go yet. So that would be interesting. I've had out there this morning. See what else is going on there? But aside from that, you know, the status are gonna be I think the other question is how much will tell them cook play. They got us a little glimpse of them in the preseason. They know what they think of him. But they you see Murray together. What kind of a tandem will that look like defensively, you pretty much know what you're going to get from this team right now. Yeah. I was just looking over the past. You know, you, and I both grew up a Viking fans always will be diehards. But one thing that they've had an issue with the last five six seasons in Arosa different quarterback has started every time. Absolutely unbelievable. If you look at the league. In the league. And generally speaking is real high end quarterback Tom Brady, drew Brees sector cetera. You look at the Vikings. And how they've had to patchwork. This thing together. The most important position is incredible. That they've won to last three division titles. I mean, we start naming names just the other day. And you know, we can't even remember them all Christian ponder, Matt Cassel. Teddy bridgewater. Josh Freeman for a game. And I mean, it's just incredible. How many quarterbacks they've had going back to pre Brett farve antivirus Jackson. And then they brought in sage Rosenfels. Here's just so many names. Then then you go over green and go Aaron Rodgers. Yeah. Yeah. This is this incredible Detroit. Matt stafford. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Is many games as they have given that scenario? But that's still kind of you know, we don't know exactly what you get some cousins grind newly quarterback Goodwin. But you're not quite sure where he fits into say last. I think quarterback to start two consecutive might have been Christian. Ponder believe it or not. I think so I don't have the numbers in front of me. But just off the top of my noggin. I think that's the deal. Yeah. Even when they when they signed Sam Bradford member Sean hill had to start there to start my career. It's been say, I give them a lot of credit 'cause in that key position. They have not at any stability still been competitive team. Yeah. That's crazy. Well, elsewhere, a maxi a we have what else you got going on ham and talk to you mccutchen here a little while about his number one team in the country. Number one. Now, I've been there before but last year fifty young team, they didn't know they'd be that good. They come back with a really good team another veteran. So that's a pretty good combination. They won the diet. Coke coke. Classic over the weekend. Of course, ultimately in that big ten as she. She challenge target Jenner. So Florida state North Carolina start test. So th they really do have a lot of good athletes over there, and the cultures is what you want it to be as as opposed to child for what you want to look like in terms of the way, the kids participate and compete for the right reasons. I watched that North Carolina match. I mean, you know, what's fun to the crowd. So that's a tough ticket. You wanna see the gopher women play? That is a tough ticket is that making some revenue now, it doesn't make rent gets confusing to people I think because you think well, if you're sold out you must be making money, not necessarily because your ticket prices, and there's no television deal. So it's not as simple. The math isn't as simple as well. If you're sold out then that must mean, you're making money much the same like over football's not drawn. Well. And they're making money because if their TV contracts and season tickets in lots of different marketing opportunities and revenue stream. So it doesn't make money. But it certainly helps when they bringing us kind of cross because it all goes into positive help helping finance. Let's say it's a good thing. It's just that. The math is a little bit different than what you would think. Okay. I did a little quick researcher. While we were chatting about it. When I started spouting off about it. And I looked at the quarterback list. So since we had Christian ponder start in two thousand twelve and two thousand thirteen fourteen. It was as you mentioned Matt Cassel fifteen. Teddy Bridgewater sixteen Sean hill seventeen Sam Bradford and not Kirk cousins. That's crazy. Just crazy to think about all the day. They had the injury bridge a couple of years ago than last year Bradford. NFC player of the week that first week. Yeah. Never played again you get to Chicago Bears. And that was that pseudo and they had to bring case keenum back benching case keenum as a starting quarterback there. I mean you and then you go back to ponder and Cassel replaced him. And we've seen it all. I mean, I can't imagine this team in the NFL. That's what they've gone through. With that position. They keep trying to every team does every looking for that one quarterback at franchise quarterback that they can just ride for ten to fifteen years. But boy are they are defined in the sink. How crazy this town was in nineteen eighty one when Tommy Kramer didn't star Steve dill's came in that year. So. Dombi Kramer, and Wade Wilson controversy and seen a few of them. But they back down grapes stability compared to what they have now. Well between Kramer and Wilson I think from what about seventy nine till about nineteen Ninety-one for the most part. They were always a quarterback. Started. In fact, it was after that that they started. It was it was a young rich Gannon, Sean Salisbury, man. Yup. And then Jim McMahon Warren Moon. Randall Cunningham came in in Culpeper Culpeper had a nice long run though. Didn't he? Yeah. Randall Cunningham play two years. And then remember Jeff George came in or forgotten about that one. Started for a while. Then it was Culpepper nears. And then he got injured never came back the same and. Yeah. Man on Friday. That's a book that we're talking about now. Yeah. It was anyway, Maxine interesting stuff but hope to get a win on Sunday. Hey, come back at eight forty if you would you gotta take shave check, traffic.
