"And let me just ask you. Clark, I see right now. You tell me if I'm wrong and tell me if there's more names we could add. But Clark, eastman, Mark Meadows, and Giuliani and Trump. Those 5 should definitely be indicted at am I wrong? They're all part of the conspiracy to defraud or commit offenses against the United States. And let's not forget when Donald Trump said to his corrupt DoJ official Jeffrey Clark, just say the evidence was fraudulent and leave the rest to me. And my Republican allies in Congress, you know what? His Republican allies in Congress helpfully self identified because we now know who asked for pardons. I only asked for a pardon. If you've committed a crime and you need a way to get away with that crime, you ask your co-conspirator, the president to pardon you. So we now know who from Congress tried to help him overthrow our democracy. And all of those people need to be part of the conspiracy indictment. Okay, so going with that, do you think the next two hearings are going to start to incriminate these Congress people? I do. I think Benny Thompson and Liz Cheney and the rest of the members of the J 6 committee, they ain't pulling no punches. And I think they understand what a dishonor it is that members of Congress participated in this insurrection in their own special way. And I don't think they're going to go right at their own. And disclose the evidence that they have that shows members of Congress were complicit. So Glenn, I have so many questions. I know, I don't know if that much time, but do you think right now, who has more Intel? The Jan 6 committee or the DoJ? Well, it should be the DoJ because take it from this old federal prosecutor. We want to go first most of the time. We don't want somebody else molding the testimony of witnesses. We're going to need to prove crimes in court. We want them first. We want to lock them into their grand jury testimony because we have a real interest in making sure every witness tells a complete story and accurate story, a truthful story, and a timely story. We want to lock people. Listen, if a crime is committed yesterday, I want to lock people into the grand jury today while their memories are fresh. That's our goal. So this is unusual that the congressional committee is going first. It seems with a lot of these witnesses. Now, we don't know which of these witnesses have also appeared before the grand jury. I'm sure some have, I'm sure there's some overlap. My sense right now, John, is J 6. They took the lead. They got out of the Gates first. They deposed these thousand witnesses and DoJ is now kind of slowly and methodically doing its thing because I'll tell you, as fast as the J 6 committee put these thousand witnesses under oath, took their sworn testimony.

Fresh update on "thompson" discussed on How I Got Here with Dave Fiore
"So that's been a really great lesson. So I live here also with my husband, Dan. And all my other siblings though are scattered across the state, but we at least they're all in the state of Florida. So we have a chance to see each other. Great. All right, two more questions. And then we're done. Robin looking back, what is the one thing or person that changed or altered the trajectory of your life to this point? I would have to say it has been my mother and all these various points. So I guess she changed the trajectory when she birthed me. That's a big one. That's a big one. But she's always been there to guide and support in ways that are just, again, still happening. And then when I, when I think of others, I can not think of one single person because there have been so many junctures where somebody has said something done something made a comment. One of the most difficult times in my life, I think I had a lightbulb go on in a major way. It was a casual comment from somebody who was cutting my hair. And I just truly believe that there are, you know, if you think of them as angels, if you think of them as any kind of guide or whatever it is, it's somebody who's going to be there to say what you need to hear and be open to hearing it. So I think of it more as a philosophy of being open because can you share what they said to you? Well, it was actually I was talking about being in a really, really bad and difficult relationship, and she looked at me and she said, honey, that ain't love. And I went yeah, pretty simple, but she is true. She's so right. And then I walked out of there and said, I'm getting out of that relationship. Wow. Honey, that ain't love. I remember her saying that. And of course, how many of us have been in relationships when we've known time to leave, but stick it out a little longer, hoping. So that was it. So they're just times when I just think that those messages are around us all the time. And we can tune in. Or we can let our egos take over. But I think if you can get out of your own way,

There's Some Disagreement Brewing in the J6 Committee
"There's some disagreement brewing at the J 6 committee. Apparently disagreement over whether to make a criminal referral for Trump. Now, Bernie Thompson, the chairman from Mississippi, told a reporter a couple of days ago Monday. He goes, we're not going to make a criminal referral. He goes, we're just going to tell the facts except for the Justice Department to do what they do. And immediately, there was a little mini revolt revolt coming interestingly from Liz Cheney. And from Adam Schiff, Schiff is less of a surprise. I thought we were deferring that decision until we concluded our investigation. So clearly Schiff or his trunk calls him shifty Schiff is aiming for a criminal referral. And of course, Liz Cheney marinated and kind of family hatred. You know, this is like the montagues and the capulets. She's like, you know, I gotta get this guy. I mean, just talk about, you know, it's not really a woman scorned, but this is almost like a woman's family scorned. And so got into Marshall mode, and she too says well, we haven't made a decision about these criminal referrals. Now, no U.S. president in history has been criminally prosecuted. And the idea of going after, I mean, just think about it. Not only are we talking about prosecuting a president, we're talking about prosecuting the leading figure in the Republican Party for 2024. So here you have the Biden administration and it's possible. I mean, I don't think it's likely and it's hard for me to imagine Biden running again, but the idea that Biden would criminally prosecute his potential opponent in the 2024 election. I mean, think of the implications of that.

The January 6 Committee Puts Findings on Public Display
"The January 6th committee is putting its findings on public display with an obliging sycophantic media, all the channels are covering it with the notable exception of Fox, at least fox is not doing any kind of live coverage. And yet, you know, as I take a look at this stuff, I mean, there are little tidbits here that are sort of interesting, but the whole thing is pretty pathetic. Okay, so Ivanka Trump believed Bill Barr when Bill Barr said, by the way, Bill Barr said absolutely with no investigation, no basis at all. Oh, it's a very secure election. I'm pretty convinced. What did bail bar look at to be convinced? He certainly hasn't seen or hadn't seen by them the evidence of 2000 mules. But nevertheless, apparently he was a credible enough to convince Ivanka that that Trump lost the election. Look, who cares what Ivanka Trump thinks about this? This is someone who is not even someone all that interested in politics. So maybe from a family point of view, it's modestly interesting. Here is Benny Thompson Donald Trump was at the center of that conspiracy. Well, first of all, you haven't proven it was a conspiracy. Where's the conspiracy? Show us that all the people who came to D.C. are winning the capitol conspired with each other to do that. They didn't manifestly they didn't. And in fact, what Trump said to people was to peacefully and patriotically march to the capital, he didn't join them. He didn't go inside the capitol. He didn't tell them to go inside the

People is a good balance with the meticulousness of the work that you do as a banknote designer so i think it's good to one show that balance but to also to illustrate the people that like there's a person behind this kind of work. That does this sort of thing. So thank you so much for coming on the show. I really appreciate it. Thank you for having me.

And that's something that most artists need to be. Humble about as well is that it took someone to pour you for you. Pour out it. Took someone the poor out you know for you to pour out is folks might to pour into you into labor with you and show you how to get your craft to a certain point of expertise.

That's a story that everyone needs to know that everyone needs to know. Yeah now speaking of you know project. You're an artist outside of being a banknote designer so i wanna talk about that. There's a project that you finished just recently called colors that he'll can you talk about that man right. There was one of the most rewarding projects. I i just started teaching at. Pg college last year as Adjunct professor and i taught a class called art as therapy and what it was designed to do was to get people to slow down in their life and just pick up a paintbrush or a pencil and just relax so i actually taught that class that teach people how to use art as a therapeutical thing for their own life. Because it's always been therapy for me. And i turned it into a course and they did so well where. Pg college actually called me back that do it again. This year where. I'm going to be teaching families. You know which is going to be children and at the end there currents or how to just connect together as current signed or daughter round to be teaching them.

"I wanted to be a banknote designer. So i started as a police officer. I'm waiting for the apprenticeship to open. When it came open he applied. And that's ron got in. That's also clarence got into both of them. Technically police officers. When they first got in i came in right out of high school i was gonna ask. How did you did you. First learn about banknote design. I learn about that particular job from my father. My father actually was a silica maker for the actual printing presses at the bureau and i was in high school when he told me. And i you know at the high that suitland digital performing arts school you know under dr thompson at the time in this doty. They've really pushed us for four years to develop a portfolio so our portfolios when we graduated work equal to anyone at went to any art school it matter where scared or any pratt institute are or folios pretty much to just as equal as any college portfolio and that was their push started when we graduated from high school that we get into any college we wanted to or we could apply for. We could make pretty much. Cut it wherever job we will go into and they were correct. My portfolio was ready to go in applied and clearly at that time to bureau saw. They liked what they saw. And i got hired in the apprenticeship. Wow right out of high school you went into the apprenticeship so when you went to the university of the district you were doing these both at the same time. Yeah i'll tell you what's interesting about. That story is i was actually when i went there. I was under dr. Yvan qatar and doc yvonne carter is one of the she was african american woman and her art were was unbelievable. She was a contemporary artists. Pretty well known from research teams from the carolinas and she actually started teaching at the university of district columbia. She was the chairperson of our department. And i remember her sitting me down. She never yield. Raise their voice dr thompson and very calm voice but she had a way of talking to you really line you up real quick house right out of high school. Just got this job. And i came in her office. Pretty cocky as she sat me down. She says son no matter. How good you are. You always have to be ready to learn. She said that she said. Because if you go in cocky in life you'll miss a whole lot and that stung me. But she was so calm at all times and she was the one that pretty much tight me up her in dr smith and they took me under their wing when i was in college and really really made sure that the skills that i have from high school were homed for this particular job just as an artist in general they always taught me not. You know yes. That's a good great job but we want to develop as an artist that works. They're not someone desktop in the art to work here. What's up though was amazing and very right very was very true. They wanted me to be an outstanding artists outside of the platform of where. I was work outside of those two professors. Like what else do you really remember from your time going to university of the district of columbia thing i do remember and i remember ron and clarence telling me when i first got there to learn my history. Please larger black history. Because you're going to have to be two steps ahead of just in reality. Just have two steps ahead as african-american because we know about the racism within our country and it would just get me. Where eddie and being a spec- it got me ready.

The different stresses and things and anxieties that come with work of this nature very intense. Upset this through interviews before that doing banknote design is like putting together the most difficult puzzle. You can put together in your life and on finding that i had an opportunity to look at every piece for change while being home working from home and away each piece and knowing that each piece of that hustle was more significant than ever. Before and now to that end. I know that you can't talk like directly about the work you're doing because that whole banknote design processes super top secret. Can you give just like a broad overview for our audience about the work that you do banked up design is a art form that i don't think people pay attention to they'll look at the mona lisa. They'll look at different pieces of artwork. That have been deemed as our. Yeah that's piece of artwork but when it comes down to currency they look at it as a volume or something that is used for spending or commerce a vehicle of commerce to buy and sale. It's it's just a form currency that's what it's forced by things with what if they ever stopped and before they when they get it in their pocket and look at art form. That's on near they will be blown away. There's so many intricate details that are put into currency designed than be paid attention to from the sculptural portrait. The live work that's ended the different colors the micro tax all of those different things it takes time to do is not only just the security but it's also for static point of view. Yeah i remember being a kid and really like i wouldn't necessarily say be in some money designed but like really looking and studying a bill and seeing how it's like design and put together because you're right. It has so many intricate little details. Of course you've got signatures and and you've got serial numbers on there but like some larger bills have a bit of a plastic strip that goes through it and even ask you know. Banknote designers changed here in the us. I've just always found it really fascinating. How much goes into the design of like a bill. That's really interesting. Yeah you know studying them. Different currencies all over the world. I see how..

"Like me are careful. Never to refer to biden as president because he is not he was not elected by we the people so we're living in perfectly unprecedented times It would be very mild to call it a constitutional crisis. We're trying to navigate our way through this. You believe that. God is going to right the wrong of this election. I do i. Do you know the day after the election. I went to the lord. I said okay. Lord what's going on about this. And the lord took me into the spirit and i saw as as the spiritual realm opened up i saw up above me. A vision of a scale scale of justice you know had the upright cross beams to pans that were hanging down but there was a thumb on one of them and it was pulling down. We understand that. God abhors injustice. You know he wants a just wait and so it was pulled down. And then i heard the voice of the lord and he said there's a thumb on the scale and it is robbery and then he followed up by saying give moses time to work when he said give moses time to work instinctively just on the inside understood. He was talking about the laws in the court of heaven. And how it's working give it time to work because it was talking about spiritual law and then how it superimposes itself over the laws in the courts of man show. I've been giving it time to work. I know that it's robbery. That's what the lord told me. And my wife she k- she even got it before. I did the night before she turned to me and she said this is a stolen election. Something's wrong something's going on right. I said yes so That's what we're waiting for. A lot of people think that. We're in denial or you know we're crazy or what i know god shed and so i'm willing to wait but i'm also willing to pray i'm also willing to prophesy decree and of follow up my faith with my feet in with my action and i do it in the spiritual realm. None of these things. I mean there are natural things. We understand eric that we have to do. There's a legal system. There's voting you know all those requirements upon us but in the spiritual realm. My primary responsibility is to pray. Pray moves heaven and earth. Prayer is what changes things because of the authority that god has given to us and the church of the lord. Jesus christ have. This has the greatest spiritual authority on earth. Unfortunately there are so many people that don't understand that in so many christians that don't pray but it's an imperative for ush. There are many christians who believe watching fox. News moves the heart of god. That's not scriptural. You've got to pray you've shared a lot of things we're going to drag you over into our to if we can Was there more to this division that you had that you can share when we come back or was that it and we'll unpack it all impact a little bit. There's a little bit more. Yeah well this is its powerful stuff. You have said that. God's hand is on donald trump and that he has a future. You said that. God said that to you. And if god didn't say that to you. I don't think you would say that he did. That's why you're on this program. So we'll be right back folks and talking to mike thompson. Stick around for our two. Don't go away and then..

"For a minute. And then i began to hear those sounds coming up. I just realized we've gone over the a lot of time. We're gonna be right back folks and we'll that might keep talking down. This thoughts and talking to mike thompson might please continue where you just left off. Lord wants to take down the deception. And he wants to remove that. There's so much so much lies fabrications. That are occurring not only the politics in the united states. And obviously that's the thing that we have to look at here eric. That's why took me to washington dc because of the capital because of the nationalism. Everything that that's happening in our country is that god has a plan and a purpose for america and that plan and purpose is good. it's righteousness itch justice. There's been too much pulling to the far left too much control by the far right. And lord wants to develop. I think that i would say the covenant that he established in the founding of america because he wants destiny to rain. So i spoke prophecy. I spoke truth. I spoke justice into the atmosphere. Just as the lord had spoken to me to do so when that happened i saw a greater activity of the angels begin to transpire. They were moving all around washington. Dc eric exactly. What all that means how. It's all gonna play out what it is that they're going to do. But i do know that about five and a half six months ago. Lord spoke to me about a tearing in washington. Dc vision a tearing. Yeah in this vision. He took me to washington. Dc and he showed me politicians. There were many of them. Those in the su- administration right at this particular point others many where there was a tearing their clothes. It would occur in their shirt or their blouse should their pants their skirt and the tears would be like two to four inches. They start at the top and they would go down towards the bottom and the symbolism of that i think was important because it meant from heaven earth. It was like the tearing of the veil. When jesus was crucified and then parts of their skin would be exposed and that exposing was what god was beginning to show me at that point that as we proceeded that there would be greater exposing not just exposing. But something done about it. And that's why the angels in the vision. That i had just a few days. Ago is so important. The army of angels because something was being done about it. We can't see everything that's happening behind the scenes. You see my My gift is to see what's going on in the spiritual realm and then report it to the body of christ so that they can see those kind of things and have hope and have a sense of direction and purpose. The prophecy never ever ever exalts itself above the word of god So we always match. According to what god is saying but one of the things we have to understand is even though that the holy spirit will never violate the word of god. The holy spirit doesn't mind violating our interpretation and misunderstanding of the word of god Because he is god and so what he's doing is he's moving. There is a great revival. That is happening right now. Airy this is we are. On the verge. We're on the coast of something that is just changing like that. Some away. say you've said that many times of people listen to you and it's deeply encouraging and one of the reasons i want to have you on is because i want my audience to be as encouraged as have been that in the midst of this darkness. God says hold on. I'm not done with america because many people that seem to think it's over when the end times it's over you know rates to run into the caves but that's not what god has been saying to. You know others evil in the world there always has been always will be until the second coming of the lord. Jesus christ i mean we understand those things but there is victory also in the bible it talks about in the last days their scriptures in the new testament where the apostle paul particularly was talking about in the last days and he explains how that there would be all this kind of evil and lawlessness. Lawlessness is a good word. Apostle paul love to talk about lawlessness. He talked about this present evil age and connected that with lawlessness. How that the entire mass of human thinking devoid of the reality and the truth of god and the revelation of the holy spirit in our life produces a mindset in humanity to where they they don't believe in god and not follow after the morals of god and thereby there's a lawlessness that occurs spiritual lawlessness. We've seen recently. A lot of physical lawlessness legal lawlessness. If you will and But the holy spirit also inspired in the book of acts where on the day of pentecost when the holy spirit came and he moved in any birth the church and then they questioned the people around the heard him speaking tongues. They saw the tong tongues of fire on the people's heads it all that was going. They were praising god they were magnifying. God in people that were watching questioned that and so the first great sherman there where peter said that this is that that joel prophesy and he said in the last day jobs i will pour out of my spirit. So if the bible at the new testament says in the last days there will be lawlessness. It also says in the last days. I will pour out of my spirit. I'm saying that the antidote that you're for the lawlessness is the outpouring of the holy spirit is about revival spiritual awakening. We're in a new christian era right. At this point that i can sense. I realized the span of the age of grapes from the resurrection of jesus to his second coming that there is a level playing field that it all works with the salvation of got but there is repetitive cycles within that to where the holy spirit has new revivals new outpourings new refreshing and we are in one. I don't care what it looks like in the natural realm. I've seen it in the spiritual realm. I have seen the glory of god. Coming there is a rainbow glory of god. That is moving into the earth right now and people are being shaved and filled with the holy spirit. There's hope there's hope there's hope We're gonna We're gonna hang on to you For a couple more segments folks. Don't go away please. do go to eric. Metaxas dot com. Sign up for my newsletter.

"Sharing another thing entirely of being quote unquote taken up in the spirit Over the earth Flying over to a being above. I mean a lot of people. Think what the heck is this guy even talking about. But i know you well enough now to know that. You're not making this up and i know other people who've experienced things just like you described so not the only person that from whom i've ever heard this but What do you have things like. You're describing now happen to you somewhat regularly or was this particularly rare. How did it strike you win. It occurred. I have experiences regularly. I would say every day some form but there are various forms. Sometimes it's the voice. Ah god sometimes it's a dream. I dream all that often. My wife is really adept in that. But i see things envision formed and the lord will come to me in various ways number one. There'd be a vision. Manny where it just imprinted into my brain is kind of like on the canvas of my heart inside because you know we have an inner spirit and inner person who has the ability to connect and operate in the spiritual round to see hear feel touch. See things and so. I've learned over the years. How that when. That comes up when i see it in my heart. That is the holy spirit painting that image on the campus of my heart. I see that is very a but it goes from there in various levels up to A full blown vision where. I'm watching the thing just right in front of me. Sometimes i'm taking up. And i'm carried to other places Over the nation or other nations. Even and i see things but very often what happened. You know what the apostle paul said it very well. Second corinthians twelve when he was talking about being caught up to third heaven and he said weather in the body or out of the body. I don't know he said i know it happened man. And so. That's what happens with me sometimes. I'm like one foot in the natural one foot in the spiritual realm and i see both simultaneously

"You know. We're doing something a little different this week. This prophet week on the eric metaxas show few years ago. We did bigfoot week or sasquatch week depending on where you are We did hell week. We talked about hell. We haven't done anything like that while i thought it would be fun and To talk to some folks Whom i respect and value in the prophetic now. A lot of you listening to this program. You don't even know what i'm talking about. Some of you know what. I'm talking about in your disdainful or skeptical or hostile to it. I i want to try to keep an open mind because all of us care about what god says. If you believe in god you know that we would never wanna put words in his mouth. That would be blasphemous and people do it And it's blasphemous. If and when they do it so we care a lot about this which is why I want to introduce you again to my guest. Mike thomson mike thompson. Welcome oh hi eric. So wonderful to be here today. What it's it's good to see you. I know you're in sunny. Las vegas where you have your church there if people wanna find you before we get into our conversation because you've shared some amazing things recently but if people wanna find your look you up where where would they best find you. Well there are the websites word of life. World outreach dot org and mike thompson ministries dot org dot com. The address of our building recording studio church is ninety. Forty one South paco's road in henderson sweet. Four thousand. alright. I'm on youtube and also on facebook. I'm everywhere your everywhere. Well you you've been on this program and we kinda got your your background the last time but just to reprise a little bit because just the other day you came on your youtube channel and delivered. What struck me as particularly power fall Vision that god had given you. It was really compelling. And i said i would love to get you on the program to share that with my audience. Many of whom are very ignorant of of this kind of thing And i think they shouldn't be. Because i think we need hope and it strikes me that You and a handful of others have been delivering some hopeful messages from god which Which we need at this time in this nation so But before you do that just just give a quick background on. When did you start hearing from god in this. Obviously supernatural way. Well i didn't come by it naturally. My wife she k- had been experiencing these things oliver live but when we just shortly after we married we received the baptism in the holy spirit together until i began experiencing insane and developing and training. Myself then to hear the voice of god. I didn't know how to do that before. But very quickly. It began to develop in my life. What year are we talk. When did you get married. Unc c. k. Our well that put me on the spot. Seventy two holy seventy three seventy three seventy three. Your were coming up on our fifty. Yeah you're you're. I predict it's going to last. I think the first fifty years are always say yeah. My parents made it to like sixty five so we think we're good. How wonderful well. You obviously got married young. I gotta say that There are many people who listen to this program. You don't either. They don't understand what we're about to discuss. Or maybe they're hostile to it for some reason so I i want to say again. The reason that i have you on is because you're one of those voices that you're you're very careful it strikes me very seasoned in in how you talk about these things because it's important. This is such a big deal that we can't afford to get this stuff wrong but you shared some really wild stuff recently and i say wild. I don't mean off. i just mean it was it. Was it struck me as a as important and I i just love you to to to share that if you would oh yes well. I've had a lot of experience. A lot of asians over the years so like you said season just by experience you learn and you always submitted to the word of god because the word of god is the grid but all things come by the word and the spirit so what occurred to me. is in this encounter with god. I was praying. It was thursday night. I was right down here in this recording studio was walking around praying and the spirit of god just took me into the supernatural the spiritual realm and it opened up and i was taken just kind of up over. The united states went over to washington. Dc and. i was in an elevated position. Now eric this is a. I know a lot of people. While guys fruitcakes you know but now it's real. And it's the way that god intended for his children operating supernatural. We all wanna wanna be clear. Like i've got has spoken me number of times. Not nothing like what. You have shared Am i have a number of friends. That seem to hear from god in these. Very dramatic supernatural ways. It's a particular gift that god has given you and We had chris read on earlier this week and amanda grace and others. But what's interesting to me is how it's not the same for any. Two people of chris read shared dreams. They were clearly.

"thompson" Discussed on Women and Crime
"Pool starts bragging to other inmates. That cotton was doing some of his time. And this really pissed off. Because he's innocent and in his book which we'll talk about later. He describes how he fashioned the blade at of a piece of metal and he plans on killing bobby pull. His father is the one who talked him out of it begging him not to he said. Put your faith in god. And if you kill bobby pool then you really do belong behind those bars and you are no longer an innocent man. I would think if you kill him to. You might not be able to prove that. You're he's the one who committed the crimes you kind of need them alive for that. Yes and as much as he hated. Bobby pool he you know he did take what his father said and he decided think he says he ended up flushing the blaze down the toilet. He'd decided i'm not going to do this. But what he did do as he started taking notes everything he could about bobby and why he was suspicious of him to me. This is the best part he even got a photo with. Bobby wow so imprison. Member mentioned ronald had sisters. Yes bobby was interested in one of ronald sisters and said hey. Can i get your sister's number like to date her and ronald said sure. Let's take a i. So i could see if she's interested very clever. How clever is that so he you see the picture online too. There's a picture of the two men in prison ronald under the guise of sending this. His sister takes a picture with this man. If you're calling meghan. I remember that other woman who had been raped just an hour after thompson member. They were in the hospital together now. This was the same neighborhood the same kind of attack and the police were pretty much certain. It was the same man. They had almost exact description of what this man was wearing. And what he looked like an appeals court ruled that the evidence relating to this victim should have been allowed in the first trial so in member. I didn't mention that victim in the first trial because she didn't pick ronald lineup so they decided not to include her case when they were trying ronald the first time around and the jury was never told about the the fact that there was another victim who did not identify him correct so luckily the appeals court believed that he needed a new trial. So that's exactly what they did. They granted ronald and a new trial. And at this trial the witnesses would get to see. Bobby poole who was subpoenaed by cotton's lawyer here in an amazing legal team and also here from two other inmates who said that poole told them you remember how cool was bragging that cotton serving time for him. Those two men were also allowed to come testify. Cotton thought this was. You know this was going to be the ticket to his freedom. Unfortunately pool of course denied this. These two witnesses were there. Jailhouse snitch is not present but they're not considered the most reliable unfortunately exactly and it was hearsay and the worst part was that thomson testified and so did this other victim. Both of them testified note. We've never seen that man pointing at bobby pool and that is our attacker pointing at ronald cotton. So the first victim who didn't pick cotton out of picking him out is now saying that because he's already been convicted in the first trial so this goes back to that confidence contamination This woman who never ever picked him is now standing in court in front of a jury pointing at him. So now you have to victims. Who are idea ronald. So what do you think happens. He's convicted again. He's convicted but now he's convicted to a life term plus fifty four right now. He's got to crimes. So unfortunately ronald kahn and heads back to prison..

"And she bought an airplane there so my dad was like seventeen thousand dollars. Pat part you gotta shit. Of course of course ship it but i thought that was really interesting. It was really fun day. I mean it was windy out there on the desert but it was really fun walking around in that airplane graveyard. I mean it was fun. It was funny for me because some of it takes place in newark airport. And i live. Maybe fifteen minutes away so that was kind of neat. And you know i always watch for continuity mistakes but pretty authentic to me from what i saw so i could so good. Oh good well. I was just happy that i didn't have to shoot on the airplane. Because that's really painful death being inside one of you know a plane. It's like oh now. Did you do anything for the dvd release of the movie interviews. Or anything. I mean i am probably did interviews but i have. I don't remember everyone's upset because they're just finally releasing howard the duck on dvd. Or no kidding no special feature his. They weren't spending one more penny. Oh i don't know. I mean boy as as a young actors literally having to have love scene with the duck i mean. That's that's acting. I'm sorry it has really a great scene. I know it's i. I've been through a lot of different things but my kids won't watch that movie because every time they get to my love seeing what the duck. They're like mom. Got turn it off. But i get to sing like a rockstar soon. Like no by As maybe on dvd might be. They can fast forward to that part. So only one of the things that you're also doing is the jane doe films and boy i mean talk about. I think the last one came out this year now is that does that have like a finite ending or is it just leave it open for more. Maybe leaves it open for more. I don't know I know they got really great ratings. The second to last one that came out that directed so you know it's funny because you know that show gossip girl it like a million. It gets like a one share. Which is i guess. Theoretically a million people or something like that. It's considered like a giant. Hit a homer channel regularly gets to a to. You know what i mean. And it's considered like oh. Nobody watches that. It's so weird. That's just weird. Businesses really weird. It's all kind of strange. Perception agree the hallmark movies. But hardly anybody like in new york or la watches it people in the mid mid west in the middle of the country. Which i'm proud of what other they're very good great tact or for you to. I mean you've done a lot with her so you know they've been fun to watch. I mean you know. They're they're good old fashioned mysteries and it's good to keep your your brain active watching something. I know it's true. It's true and i had a really good time. And i'm i thank god for cable because it's a it's a great place for us actors. That are not twenty five to work. You know it's a it's lovely to have specialized stations now where you can go work now. Well those are those available on dvd. Or are they going to be going in that direction. Or i don't know honestly sale. Tell me anything i mean. They play them all the time. And it's funny. In other countries someone was telling me that in in indonesia the only american speaking Station is the hallmark channel. So i must be a big star there every minute. Actually i think as we tape this. They actually aired a jane doe over the weekend. I think yesterday they had one really. Yup they did have one. Yeah wow you're on a lot. No i know. And they run back to feature incessantly all the time every day. Well yeah that's also on. Dvd trilogy and side talks. Conversation with leah thompson will continue in a moment. Here's more sci fi. Top with tony tomato. You mentioned that and you know for a young actress. A b- really break down your performance. I mean you're playing this character and her descendants and future descendants at different stages of age and that when you look back and you and you separate all the different performances. That was pretty amazing for a young actress. To pull that off obviously robertson. Mechta saw something you could do. It was a great heart and it was just a great part. I feel so lucky to be mostly known for a part that is that was just great and i really was good in it. We're very good. Yes i did pull off all the different incarnations i mean. That's an interesting kind of be interesting acting assignment for anybody to put off different. You know like if your life when a different way how you would be you know. If i would have stayed in minnesota what would i be if i would you know. Marry that person. How would i be five. Eighty out. I'd be you know it was. It was interesting just so. I'm so grateful that that was. I got that part. You're playing her in the fifties as a young teenager and then you're playing her as a middle aged woman you know you know with the whole makeup and everything and Yeah i played like three incarnations seven year old rain and then an eight year old and then the great grandma and then you know so. Yeah it was all. I can say it was a great experience. Like it's something i remember. Robertson is saying to me. I said yeah he said you know what i feel happy knowing that that that's my middle name i was like i know. I know leah back the future thompson there was there was things you did with your voice to to kind of you know kind of hook the audience a little bit like he would add at the beginning. You'd almost sound like the older maggie and then and then you change took to her and it would be your younger voice. And then he michael. J. fox would would see who you are and it'd be like okay. You know that kind of things i know. Those are turkey scenes. I'd be like oh you're safe and sound back in good old nineteen fifty five exactly. That's nice that you notice that. And but robertson is such precise director. Give those precise directions and you know. I remember this one moment that they just like suffered over. When i was kissing my goal in the car and they suffered. they couldn't figure out how to shoot it and he wanted one. I'd open up and they couldn't you know when i'm kissing him and i want one i'd open up. He had things like so specific in his mind and it was. It was hard when you couldn't exactly deliver it. Exactly the way he wanted it and we just sit there and his chair and just giggle you. Things went right. He's just gig. He's just so gleeful and.
