The internet is never handled a smart fall and yet he manages to network from inside the prison even before they had access to phones and he would know people in the government and he goes out and gets his own interviews independently of a He is connected at columbia university and yell and he's just he's pursuing all these degrees he has a higher degree than i do.

What if the person's innocent would you want to be responsible for ordering the execution of an innocent person as a lot of innocent people on death row and i'm learning more and more about how that happens it's really audible. I mean there's so many cases where you have a prosecutor who can display really fast loose with the facts of the keys to present some information but not others to make a situation look like it happened a certain way. And then if you've got a defense attorney who's not on their game then that's how it happens and we have defense attorney. Sometimes who are paid so little and given so many cases to represent that they do a very good job of defending someone and it happens all the time like in jerry's cakes bins. Attorney does not present a defense at all during his trial and speaking about innocent people in volume sixty three. We spoke with a gentleman by the name of tae robinson who we spoke about earlier in this volume. I am currently fighting along for commission. And it's not something that i say lightly because i understand the stigma behind people. I claims of innocence. But it doesn't take away from the fact that throughout my life. I have engaged in a lot of poor choice and a lot of You'll behavior I was a criminal. I did sell drugs Seventeen years old charged fullest. Snatching the woman pocketbook.

It would always complement the other guys on their writing. He's very soft spoken. He just had this present that was peaceful and kind. And i just. I liked having him in my class. This is a bit of a long fact but it's really interesting so bad with me. In an article published by the equal justice initiative. They say that more than one hundred and seventy people have been exonerated and released from death row since nineteen seventy-three. There are many reasons why someone might be wrongfully convicted including incorrect eyewitness. Identification 's foes and coerced confessions inadequate legal defense foe so misleading forensic evidence of false accusations. Perjury by witnesses. Who have promised lenient treatment or other incentives in exchange for that testimony misconduct by police or prosecutors was involved in seventeen nine percent of homicide exonerations in two thousand and eighteen concealing evidence that cost doubt on the defendant's guilt is the most common type of misconduct which includes police officers. Threatening witnesses. Forensic analysts faking results. Prosecutors presenting false testimony a record. One hundred eleven exonerations in two thousand. Eighteen involve witnesses.

"That involve murder and it's also But then stay level crimes each state decides whether or not to have a death penalty and some have and some don't so we didn't states their decision to go after.

It can be hard to get people interested in balked and anti-death-penalty advocacy is. There's not a sense of immediacy but now that so. Many people are being killed in our names.

Catalogue at psychology of entrepreneurship dot com. So tessie what needs to change. How does change even happen. The political change happens when activists try really hard to petition for it so there were years and years and years of activists who were pressure for them to install phone steeple in the prison. Were pressuring the prison to install fall and finally they did Prisons are governed by a warden and the wardens turnover pretty quickly. I've only ever seen award in last two years couple years usually and each one can have a different policy. They can change everything. So you'll see a warden who will open up the prison in let volunteers like me. Come in and give classes and then the very next board will take all the classes away which is exactly what happened as they've gone through at least three wardens since the one that i knew and they've had the classes and they've had the way and then the newer brought in the phones. Let's just out in volume sixty two. We wind deep into the topic of perspective. Everything changes with a change of perspective and a guest. that evening was name is lean more death-row. I've been in prison for a over twenty seven and a half years. I've been on death. Row since nineteen ninety seven november twenty first being exact I'm co author of the book crimson. Metal voices from death-row with jesse steel and Three and they we all. We wrote the book of couple of years ago when you know finally got published. I'm also a mc with with music releasing liable awesome projects. I'm working all is well. I wanted you to hear a voice. Because i asked tessie with a. She remembered meeting him for the first time. Arlene had been in that first class. And i remember him probably more than anyone. He's very big. He has he's one of those people who just has a presence as soon as he walks into the room. He has kind of a booming voice. But i would consider a good radio voice. And everybody always bell They defer to him in many ways. He was clearly a leader in the group and and people listened to his opinion and may respective. I really was drawn to him for that reason. And he's also a free writer so after my classes canceled i wrote to him and i said that i wanted to continue to stay in touch that. I was really impressed with his writing. And i wanted to help them work on it. And maybe i'll get a wish someday when we come back you get to meet some questions that we've all had since we started listening to this while you you know the one that annoys you more than anything bad question.

Hey welcome back. So tessie what i want to know is how safe is it for someone like you to be constantly exposed to people on death row like who are these people like you know. What are they like. What have they done people on death row in north carolina all been convicted of murder. And you there are many many people every year and only a few of them actually go to death row before getting involved in this kind of work. I thought that the people who go to death row who are people who have received death sentences. they're going to be executed by the state. I thought that they were the worst of the worst that they had committed the most horrific of the murders but one thing that i found that really shocked me that that's not true at that it's actually fairly arbitrary. Who goes to death row in. Who doesn't so you do receive an execution date at the time that you're sentenced however You're up you're able to appeal the conviction an appeal take decades ten years twenty years. Elaine has been on death row. Twenty seven years is still appealing his in birch so until those appeals end it can't schedule on execution. There are two things that are very very important. And i wanna cover them one at a time. The first thing is about things going wrong well most specifically it's about the times win executions. Don't go according to plan can get pretty ugly. Oftentimes the dejection darlie work. Because there's nothing that's there's no cocktail of drugs that is made specifically to kill. Someone is no company that will make that drug. So what states do is they create their own. Cocktails base sur different drugs and often there's litigation over that so currently in north carolina they haven't executed anyone or over a decade because his litigation in the courts over that cocktail the companies that make the different ingredients are fighting. They don't like for their medicine be used to kill people though it's always really messy howell. The drugs are used. What drugs are used so often goes wrong. And so you'll see something not working in. You see people gasping in.

"So especially when talking about the crimes in their cases. There's a lot of the careful out. So if they get so gotcha question that they answer wrong could affect literally affect their lives because if prosecutors who are trying to get though executed if all of that and use it against them trial when they go back to child. Well yeah it could have huge. Will we hear on the show. Take this as a privilege to cover these stories and have these conversations and while i have been reviewing some cases through the last few months with us doing the story around death penalty. Well they were a lot of really weird occurrences occurrences that didn't line up like some people getting the death penalty. That didn't actually kill anyone. It's not uncommon to execute people who participated in a murder but didn't actually kill anyone. When i was teaching my class at central present. There were two people who had been involved in some kind of a robbery that had ended in a murder and in both cases. They got the death penalty as the compasses. The actual shooter the one who did the killing not if the death penalty and that is actually pretty common. The happen is bizarre but it does happen a lot here. It just goes to show how much the attorney that you have matters. And how arbitrary the death penalty As you've got somebody with a good attorney who was the shooter and somebody who a bad attorney who would be accomplished. Then you're gonna wind up loose situation like that it can do with race f. The person who was the shooter was a different race alive. Person may be if you wind up with that kind of outcome and there are lots of other reasons attorney argues mental health or the shooter if sometimes if one person is given the death penalty the lawyer for the kota funding asked to move the trial to another county and if you have different jury than the death penalty is a lot of weird things that go into it in a statement for the two thousand seventeen world day against the death penalty united nations human rights experts commented that people living in poverty a disproportionately affected by the death penalty for many reasons. They're an easy target for the police. They cannot not afford a lawyer. The free legal assistance they might receive is of low quality procuring expert. Evidence is beyond their means. Tracing witnesses is too costly and access to appeals often depends on being able to afford extra council many cannot not afford pale and therefore remain in custody before their trials feather hindering that efforts to prepare an effective defense. You know we started covering the premeditated state-sanctioned murders which is really what the death penalty is. Well we started covering them because you know test. He says it best.

You know we are well into twenty twenty one and one of the things that is taking up. A lot of my time is clubhouse. You are on their connect with me. I have never been more social than i've been in the last couple of weeks. My handle is at rawnsley and we have a club on there too. It's called the psychology of entrepreneurship and there are a few members. We have a bunch of followers. That is joining all the time which is insane so jonathan clubhouse rather join me and events on every day. So you know. I'm having some insane conversations on there and just like this show the conversations of blowing my mind and you know these conversations. I would have never had the chance to have if not for clubhouse the platform well speaking of conversations. That are super crazy. If you haven't listened to volumes sixty one through sixty three then well what is and why was it. Something i said. Well you know. The reason i ask is none of those conversations would have happened. If not for. I think it's still ama- journalist and co author of consumer letters voices from the and i would introduce myself to someone in prison. We refer to us. Were prisoner or resident or other than inmate. I would introduce them out. Introduce myself to anyone else now. Just another person okay. So you're a journalist. Cassie and you talk to people that are about to be killed. And before i let s see that and tell us how she got involved in all this. I have to say that. I can't imagine how the activists inside a gives so much to strange's that she met in prison and if i'm really honest and in all honesty i wish that we will all life that to you know family members and the people that we meet every day just treat them like we would treat anyone else but i in two thousand fourteen. I had this extraordinary opportunity to teach a writing class to people on death row. And i walked in and i remember being really air the first time in sort of unsure what i was doing in a room of about twenty men who all been convicted of murder But i wanted to teach them how to write about their pasts. I'll they got to prison. What kind of world. They had gone through since they had been there. And as i started working with the guys and listening to their writing and helping them with their writing. I was just so captivated at the amount of that they had done and the amount of self reflection that they had done they had been in prison. I hadn't really expected that. Use a lot of wisdom and insight. So i wrote a letter to the local newspaper editorial and i published it Basically talking about the humanity of people. I have witnessed on death row and about a week. After published that letter i received return response from warden of the present telling me that my services were no longer required. Cancelled my class you know. We are blessed to be talking with these amazing humans. Because whoa you know they have to watch what they say because well Twenty one jump straight was forced to drop the charges because you forgot to read him his miranda rights. What possible reason is. They're not doing the only thing you have to do when arresting someone. I did read him his right. I did a version of that. Do you even know the miranda rights. Yes when we we got a lot of stuff to do you go ahead. You're going anywhere you time. I have probably push it back. Go ahead it's four. Declamatory sentences followed by a question for a total of fifty seven words. it's obviously starts with you. Have the right to remain silent born and then It sounds something like this. Do you have the right to remain an attorney. Did you say that you have the right to be an attorney you do. The miranda rights are phrases. We all recognize. We'll anyone watches movies anyway They are better explained. He'll speak up to invoke your right to remain silent. What are the miranda warnings in nineteen sixty six in the case of miranda versus arizona. Supreme court held that the police must advise a suspect in custody of his constitutional rights before questioning that suspect. These rights secured by the fifth and sixth amendments to the constitution. Are you have the right to remain silent. Any statement you make can and will be used as evidence against you in court. You have the right to consult with a lawyer and to have the lawyer present. During the interrogation affordable a lawyer may be appointed to represent you and no cost to you. Be careful what you say because the things you say can be used against you now. Since putting this volume together it has been brought to my attention that the miranda rights only applied to police questioning interrogation fourteen days after interest but there is such a thing as self incrimination and it happens more often than you think so tessie what they say to me and it'd be used against them. I mean they have to be really careful every single one at the case. That's still on the view.

America deserves a president who has looked up to not laughed at. Okay. No one was more laughed at by America's enemies.

off with distance you Nina save searches on the earth see you allow this keyboard is over here yes very loud mostly old doesn't look like it is with Jeez here scary when they C. two C. urban dictionary and is another wait read it Steve Hey Steve what does the world with okay don't read it Steve really please the reader someone needs a smack you Ryan don't read it Steve Kerr let's talk about movies by the way we got an email from Douglas another email our last two emails regarding Ryan this one captured anyone caps lock on the whole thing subject and message caps lock grouch is your subject message Ryan really drill sergeant no punctuation that's a Mike dropping out it's like I got time for this your ruffling the feathers today right yeah of the fellas I guess I guess they're intimidated by how much I command and wrist the mandatory here on the don and Steve show and how much my position is respected me threatening to some icy you need a weekend off I will do you good I need a weekend off yeah you need a weekend off yeah weekend off we all need a weekend off everybody here can you take the weekend off okay all of you I came across this article today suggesting that groundhog day is actually a horror movie and always has been yeah have you watch groundhog day since the Florentine started no it's really become very popular at the beginning of their suspect right up in the Atlantic at the beginning of the quarantine the movies that were sort of had spiked in popularity work contagion Donna you watch contagion I did it was very good outbreak in things like that but as time has gone on more people have moved away from that and the thing in safe into groundhog day because every day sort of starting to feel like the day before we were just talking about that last night house or is it well that's what's kind of exhausting is just the repetition like there isn't nothing is changing yes it says if somebody's talking in a in monotone and reading of an entire book with no inflection that's how it feels yes exactly indeed this is the point of groundhog day now that you know they're kind of tongue in cheek saying that this is a horror movie all along because now that we're living this we're experiencing what it's like to feel like you're living in time that is less defined than it used to be all right but it's I thought they did an interesting job of writing up so it's in it's a pretty quick article but they talk about how it starts with this oh my gosh well I'm stuck in this same day and then he thinks that great that life has no consequences he meets up with some guys at a bowling alley in there like would it be something if you could live the same day there'd be no consequences you could do anything and then he turns his life into just self serving whatever I wanna do is what I'm gonna do and he's not able to actually break out of the cycle of day after day until he starts to live for others instead of for himself selfish in the middle of doing all this stuff and he's trying to take advantage of people trying to steal monies Robbin banks doing all this stuff until he then starts to realize I need to live for other people and then that breaks him out of the rough but the horror component of it is the idea of thinking that it would be cool if you just got to relive the day over and over and there are no consequences meaning at the beginning of the quarantine you're like oh cool I can wake up later I don't have to put pants on for work all of these what feel like freedoms at the beginning turning to trappings as time goes on and the monotony of it all sort of blending together starts to become rather overwhelming mentally so they were saying if in terms of your own personal mental health if you're starting to feel like you're a lot worse off now than you were say week two of all of this there's good reason for that yeah okay means one of my favorite movies I don't remember what it was about I can't all I remember is the alarm clock going off I got you Babe comes on then the alarm song and then I remember the concertante Phil saying yes Andy McDowell and then from there I don't know what this movie's about end and Bill Murray is a curmudgeonly Pittsburgh weatherman who's been sent out to punks a tiny to cover groundhog day yet again you can tell he's just over the B. there's no appeal to him going out there and then they get stuck out there because of a snowstorm and and then when he wakes up the next day he realizes oh my gosh it's the same day again it feels like the radios just replaying the old show but then he looks out his window and punks a tiny which is alive and bustling one day a year is alive and bustling and then he starts realizing wait a minute every day I keep waking up it's the same day and that's when he starts to experiment with if you could live the same day over and over and over again what would you do with it would you do use it to just serve yourself or is the movie eventually would you find a way to better yourself for the betterment of others along it's a great though that you know what Steve guess what I'm doing right now it too yes it's the live I I just love this movie I think it's got a real good close you feel to it doesn't play so well in may but I think it plays well in the quarantine so groundhog day is a groundhog or heart disease the it is ground hog day and I think that's that yeah and that's the name of the movie as well K. holiday in the movie which reminds me behind speaking of movies that don't play well in may every year usually after Christmas my wife and I will watch my favorite holiday movie which is the holiday non Santa it's my favorite non Santa holiday movie with Jack black in Cambodia's Jude law Kate Winslet yeah and with the

"And Wendy on WGN. Still f it's Wendy Snyder guesses. Kate Mulgrew, you know, whereas an accomplished actor she has written another book a great book how to forget daughter's memoir about her parents, and what she went through is, as their health deteriorated a lot of love for you. By the way, on the text line, Kate many, many people saying they can't wait to read the book and I just wanna add your voice is second to none. You just got the most wonderful voice. Yeah, you're welcome. We were talking off the air. You were you made this pact with your mother. And you guys had a great relationship. But did you know everything we're there's some secrets that you didn't know? Did you have a really close relationship well vary? But after the contract was made that I would be her mother and whatever incarnation sheet suspected that would take place in certain secrets were not only revealed, but a shared, and I was privy to think that probably should not. I know that I should not have been privy to and I've kept them locked in the vault for, for many, many years until I could no longer contain them and the depth of the profundity of them, and this sort of serious, and the, the dangerousness of them was significant enough for me to say to you now, Wendy and looking at you and saying, I won't keep a secret now said. Don't ask me to, you know too much. And then you just kind of get really, really nervous about the bearing of those secrets. She has a lot of inner feelings, my mother. She had a lot of profound frustration. And when my the second sister to die Tessie. You lost two sisters who took two years. She was diagnosed at twelve of a brain tumor asked her sack SICOM inoperable. That's the thing, the fractured the family and the marriage and certainly my mother. So if you put it all together. She was born without a mother while her mother died in childbirth. Right. And then she was sent off to school. What can the book, I say taught her how to forget because that's where she met Jean Kennedy, in her life was saved. But still without a mother, she struggled through life, then she marries Tom Mulgrew. She meets to Chicago and they moved to. And she proceeds to have eight children sequentially. She buries Maggie who is three months old and then tender eleven years later, she buries Tessie of a brain tumor in between. She has a number of miscarriages and pregnancies, and she has migraines for years, which I, which I bear witness to. So all of this is blunting her brain, which was believe me, an exceptional organ was terrific. He would be a great thinker of racial, reader striving, always in the quest for God. She's sitting in the pew at church at church Catholic mass priests just carrying on with children's spread out helter skelter in the pew, and she'd be reading Spinosa. The other, you know you could see the women looking at my mother. Dowling who is she? She doesn't deserve that. Good. TJ. But I think blow after blow after blow dealt to her brain sort of resulted in this is an amateur, amateur diagnosis, and what we call now Alzheimer's disease. Yeah. You have children of your own. What did your mother teach you to do or to not do as a mother? She taught me not to play favorites. With me and do that. She used to look at all. I mean everybody was just desperate for attention. And she'd say, I love you all, but I like some of you better than. And you know who you are? You're saying, but we were meant to laugh about that. I don't know how funny that is. Certainly not when you're aids then you do anything for chrome of your mother's attention. She was an eccentric woman. She was unexpected. And she certainly did not think she was going to have eight children. No, it was too much. Yeah. It's batik Gammon woman. It's meant to be an artist a free thinker. She was bohemian thinker. My father got her couldn't believe that he'd won this prize. He wanted her passionately in love. I have his love letters. That's what this book came out of as I sat in the wintertime in Ireland, tears, streaming down my cheeks, reading these letters. How deeply he left her how much he wanted her? So I don't know that it was reciprocated Kate, what you just said. Isn't that what every offspring hopes to hear about their parents, that there was that deep of a love? That's that's such a compliment sip recoil. Yeah. Wanted to be at least balanced. I mean, you don't you don't mind if one is left bit more than the that's also good. I mean it can work work and is usually the way of love. I don't know if you guys are in love or have somebody or what it usually by degree. Somebody loves somebody a little bit more and people love to say, but it changes. No, it doesn't really change. Somebody loves somebody more is what I really think, and I think he loved her more. And I think as years passed and Tessie died and Maggie died, and she can get the things that she needed. She began to disappear from him. And so, I think when he died, he was actually probably relieved. Well, probably. All right. So you have this packed with your mother to be her mother. You also the mother to all the women and orange is the new black. So you took that role and made it work for you. They say that, don't they? Yes. That's, that's fine too. A handful of that clear. I called the my drives the ones that I loved, but I think Kalina red recipe cough was. Very vivid creature. She her intention in jail. I think she took the fall for her family. I let it be said. Once we got involved in the Russian mob. And I punched that women's tit, couldn't pay the fifty grand to the Russian mobster. Right. Then I had to go to jail because Dimitri, my husband, my near Duale good for nothing has been couldn't do anything. He had to stay behind in cleans and run the deli with my three cents. Also couple of year. Three losers. I take it. I go to jail, and I say to myself going to survive this, but I'm going to survive it with some excellent. I'm gonna walk out of this prison with my head held by and I'm going to take that kitchen going to transform it into something believable. And that's what red tried to do in the process, I loved, but if you watch closely if you cross the line with wrecked you're out of the picture. Loyalty means something. Well, yes. Killed. You know, I mean there was a serious parameters. Was drawn by red. There were some rumors going around after Carrie Fisher passed away that some fans thought that you would make a good general lay in the upcoming Star Wars films. But then they decided not to go with that, were, you aware of that? Would you have taken that role I was completely? But I'm aware outerwear, all of it. I mean I love it when I hear these things now I was not aware of that. Would you have taken it probably? That's. Very different kettle of fish talking about Star Wars versus start rights may Star Trek gapped. It don't that's gonna get feedback. To a Star Wars fan. So I know that.

"tessie" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Your chance are Tessie fans okay with that, though, because I mean, this is a proud program, does not like to admit it has been irrelevant for more than ten years. Well, I think you're kind of casual fans probably aren't but I think some of the more, you know, the more logical fan, some of the real, you know, you say hardcore, you think crazy, but I think some of more hardcore fans are actually come in the more realistic in some cases, and I think they see where things have to go. I think they have logic to them. Now you're casual everyday Joe he's. Going to see that power t on the helmet and he's going to expect, you know, ten wins, or everything sucks. That's just how they're going to thing. But I think when you talk to the average, you know, just kind of the, the more logical people, I think they know where this thing is they know college football. I'm gonna give him credit for that. They watch other teams. They watched Georgia. Bama, they watched the Florida's. You know how states they see what talent looks like and they know that they don't have that right now. So I think they do have they kinda just kinda grit their teeth and bear it and kinda think that okay let's just get this get some stability back in this program because unless you go get a Cam Newton. You're not gonna go from terrible the great and one year. You're not you're just doesn't happen. And so I think that they knew that this was going to be a case where they gotta get better. You know, they gotta get better a frontline scrimmage or or else. It's going to be more than a three year project. That's where they've got to get better because I think they have enough that skill position to get the chance. Was in in watching and observing, Jeremy Pruitt if there was one thing that you've been able to discern that makes you believe in feel this program will eventually get done in a big way. What is it? I think it's his his his private calorie, Paul, if that's a good word. I, I think that he sees things for what they are. I don't think he's going. I don't think he's a he's a smoke blower. I, I don't think he's a guy who believes in the impossible. I think he's a guy who knows exactly how far they have to go. And he knows that there's only one way to do that. And that's just to keep working and I think he gives them a chance. He doesn't make excuses. He doesn't tolerate them. He, he knows what good football looks like you knows, but grateful ball. Looks like and now after the past year, he knows what bad football looks like. And I think that gives you some perspective on knowing just how far you have to go because I'm sure he was a little overconfident when he came to Tennessee who wouldn't be look at his resume, I it's, it's just ridiculous. But when you look at what you have, and then you finally see, okay? When, when I what I have goes against Bama, Georgia. This is what happens. I think he sees that he knows that. Right now. And I just I think every time I go talk to the guy and every time I talked to people about the guy they seem to be of the opinion that he does have a pretty good idea. What he's doing any. He doesn't know something he's not. He doesn't shy away from saying. I don't know that I'm gonna get someone who does. So I, I think going out and looking at the hires like Jim Chaney higher. He made great hire that guys always had good offenses. He takes whatever he has at his disposal, and he makes something successful out of it. So I think this guy is making moves to me that the Kate he has an idea what he's doing. I don't guarantee anything. I don't think there's any guarantees right now. But I think this guy gives them a better chance than its predecessor did. Good stuff. Great stuff, west Rucker joining us, thank you west, we'll talk. We'll stay in touch. See. In any time, Paul, you know that you're listening to Paul finebaum.
Spare the Rodrigo: Philippine elections
"Philippine voters will head to the polls for mid-term legislative elections. More than eighteen thousand government positions are up for grabs including around three hundred seats in the house of representatives and twelve slots in the Senate in a political system where personality Trump's party some see the ballot as a popularity test for the country's firebrand leader Rodrigo Detaille if his loyalists do well, the president will be able to consolidate his power. Mr. deter take was elected in two thousand sixteen. I win so press crime group the. Nothing. Anti-establishment populist. He promised hardline policies. Three years into his term. He's delivered. He launched a bloody war on drug crime. Dead bodies are being recovered from the streets in Manila. And in one notorious speech even likened himself to Hitler. Loss of third three million. Is three million three million. That'd be happy to slot. Person. Do say is an abrasive character whose son some international opprobrium for all his campaign against drugs, which is turned into a RAV murderous free for all that's killed thousands of people John MacLean reports for the economist from nila, he's less well-known for determined efforts to to peace with was than separatists of south of the Philippines, while at the same time being tough on those who get together with Islamic state and also for his efforts to dial down the confrontation with China over territory in the South China Sea and today Filipinos will go to vote in midterm elections. Why are those elections important for Mr. dude? Jose miss deters has three years left of his single six-year term, and like go presidency needs support of congress to keep governing effectively. Now, he has been quite covering his first year. Years in office in getting most of the legislation he needed urge of the these tax reform program of infrastructure building, which will help keep the economy growing fast. So he has less need of congress in the second half is too, but it's still useful to have to govern affected. Well, I mean, what's sort of changes are in prospect for the second half of his term. Watching needs to do is congress positive the second half of tax reform measure, which will do the economy a world of good Congress's help is also needed in his project to also the constitutions were placed the unitary state with a federal system. Why did Mr. detach? They want to change the nature of governance, essentially, he wants to make sure that the peace plan for the Muslim areas of the Philippines will stand up to the scrutiny of the supreme court. Now, there is a chance the supreme court will declare that these unconstitutional simple answer to that problem. Of course, it's the change in the constitution. Back is the main reason for Mr. turkeys eagerness for federal system. And how popular is he with this program of tax reform and infrastructure and an ambitious peace plan. How's he doing in? The polls wish to do. He has had consistently high ratings in all kinds of England polls satisfaction with his government popularity everything and he's not so much. He's policies that making popular, but he's personality. And I mean, the thing that's we often hear most outside the Philippines is about this brutal crackdown on drug dealers. And the like is that a popular policy is that contributing to his popularity. Well, there are certainly misgivings on many Filipinos about how this campaign is conducted. But in general is perception the crime on seats who's fallen so yes, he's policy has public approval. But it's very qualified public approval. Is there truth to that is crime genuinely down or is it? The very public very visible nature of this crackdown. Kind of contributing to the sense that crime is down crime figures in of the crime figures and many other parts of the world. They say what the police want them to say if he's a section that the streets are safer on the other hand, the campaign against drugs is a very bloody. It said it's so it was not so much a case if these, nurses the criminals, but it's more of a war on drug dealers and predictors of the drug dealers among the police, so it's a free for all where no one knows exactly where they stand and in the event that Mr. Tetteh and his allies are triumphant in this election. We'll vet get worse. You think certainty that will be next affective criticism of the campaign against drugs, but it will carry on anyway. And in that election. I mean who are the credible threats then to Mr. detained and his allies opposition coalition. Who's made the mistake of painting? This election is a referendum on Mr. do. Tessie? Now, the opinion polls show them that the president is popular. That's only one of the senatorial candidates in the opposition is likely to win a seat. Bam Aquino who belongs to the Aquino clan. But is provided to presidents Philippines. Now, political dynasties are big factor in Philippine politics. And another interesting character to watch we'll be Mr. do Turkey's own daughter who is the man of his hometown. She's only session to attain a post. But whether we're seeing him start of a new let's go on the national stage remains to be seen. I think it's highly unlikely that tattoo tech table. We'll step onto the national stage anytime soon, so what do you think? Then we'll we'll have it in this election will Mr. Detaille and his loyalists keep their majorities. Yes. Mr. if you touch there will retain a degree of control of congress. How long that control will lust though is another matter OE politics in the? Philippines is transactional. The president. Is the phones will patronage congress gives the president's support in return for government spending in that constituencies that loyalty to the president's can change quickly. Suddenly when the president tends to become a lame duck is he does towards the end of his term. But for now, you think Mr. Detaille is is safe for the next year or two years. Yes. He's sake towards the end of his term. He will suddenly become laying as it would be. John. Thank you very much for joining us.
