"The Cold Streets Of South Memphis...Black Youngsta's Lil Brother Shot & Killed At BP Gas Station
"Memphis, Memphis, Memphis, what's going on Memphis? Welcome to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming on a Saturday. So tragedy has struck again in South Memphis today as many are mourning the loss of a local hip hop artist and the younger sibling of artist, Black Youngsta on the morning of August 18th at approximately 9 .30 AM. Now a distressing incident unfolded near a Valero BP gas station, close to the Southside Park area. After shots were fired from a vehicle, a young man identified as Temmanuel Benson was shot and taken to Region One Hospital where despite efforts to save his life, he died. Of course, this shooting leaves a profound effect on the South Memphis community as they are still dealing with the untimely death of iconic Memphis staple, Adolph Thornton Jr. known as rapper Young Dolph. Now Dolph died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head, neck and torso when he was gunned down at the Memphis Bakery, at a Memphis Bakery. Many believe this recent shooting of Black Youngsta's younger brother is in retaliation for the Young Dolph shooting as Dolph fans post cryptic messages on IG like live long Young Dolph, long live flipper. So, you know, Young Dolph man is like a iconic, just a lot of people rock with Dolph in Memphis. I mean, South Memphis, that was his stomping grounds. He was shot at that bakery. People were saying, you know, so many people wanted revenge. There was like, yo, off with Gotti's head, off with Black Youngsta's. They believe that these young men had, you know, something to do with Dolph's, you know, killing. So this just, I just think there's gonna be, I'm just hoping and praying there's not gonna be any more bloodshed, any more casualties. I hope these young men get it together. I know anytime someone takes your brother's life, this was Black Youngsta's what? He's had three brothers that have been shot down and killed tragically, all gun violence. And that has to be hard. I mean, if that were me, I would be in a retaliatory mood. I would want some type of revenge. So I'm praying for the city of Memphis, man. This is very, very tragic news. Like I said, Black Youngsta's other brother, Ronnie B, similarly shot dead. Also his brother, Heavy Camp TD, was also a victim of gun violence back in 2019. He has had three brothers that have all pretty much lost their lives to gun violence. The streets of Memphis are cold. And I mean, I'm just praying for these guys. And I'm praying for Black Youngsta, man. Very comical guy. A lot of his music I like. I think he has a different type of personality, but he's also a great artist. I think he has bars. I mean, when it comes to his music, his delivery, I think Black Youngsta has to be probably one of my, you know, one of my favorite rappers out of Memphis. You know, I like some of Gotti's music as well. Moneybag Yo, that whole camp. So we are praying for Black Youngsta as he has lost another brother to gun violence in Memphis. You guys are locked in to Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host on a Saturday, Derrick Andre Flemming. Take care, guys.
Bruce Dubinsky: How Shell Companies Can Be Used for Illegal Purposes
"Pathetic. I want you to listen to this though. This is important. They had a forensic accountant, Bruce Stabinsky on Fox talking about the money trail from these foreign governments to the Biden regime. This is This good stuff. And keep in mind these two questions because he nails it. If the Biden family crime operation was getting paid for a service, then what exactly was the service they provided? And if that service was legitimate, why did you need seven, eight, nine, 10 shell companies to launder the money through? Why not pay directly? This is a good segment. Check this out? We asked a forensic accountant. The transaction from Yelena it dollars moving, coming inbound from Russia. And then it moves into transactions to Devin Archer and 100 Biden's companies that almost dollar for dollar. That is signature of, uh, of a problem. The Binsky says people sometimes create shell companies. Then they transfer money through those firms. That makes it hard to track. And I think it was, um, uh, Seneca Thornton, uh, partners, if I have the name correctly, I think that was one of the, uh, the top, uh, tier, what I, what I call a top tier, you have layered companies. So usually there's one or two companies that start the transactions or that are controlling. And if you start with those and then follow it all the way down, that's where you'll start to get, uh, more information. Debinsky says the question to ask is what did these firms do? Did they provide a good? Did they provide a service? Did they make anything? The purpose of some of the firms was, quote, consulting. That's why Republicans believe the key service was access to the president. They didn't do anything. They used Joe Biden. then what And we're seeing is Joe

Lawmakers Debate Ethics Code for Supreme Court
"There's a story lawmakers grapple over whether Supreme Court needs an ethics code. It has an ethics code. It's voluntary. It can not be other than voluntary because that's the constitution. You know, I put it off yesterday. Article three, section one. The judicial power of the United States shall be vested in one Supreme Court and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish it. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts shall hold their offices during good behavior and which at stated times receive for their services a compensation which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office. And of the qualifications clause, guess what the court said in term limits. U.S. term limits V Thornton. It was a 5 four decision and there were liberals on the court writing it, not conservatives. 1 may neither add nor subtract from the qualifications of office. The court may not have imposed upon it a compliance test because it's unconstitutional.

Charles Thorngren Predicted This Banking Crisis Last November
"Today none other than the gentleman who told me back in November, Trish, this is going to be as bad as 2008. It's going to be some kind of banking crisis different, but something major well, I guess he got that one, right? Charles Thornton, welcome back to the program. What do you know, here we are, Charles Thornton, reading the tea leaves pretty well on that one. Good to have you back. Oh, it's great to be back. And I apologize for being right. We have to remember, this is very much like 2007, 2008, but worse. If we have runaway inflation, and unfortunately, and I know I said in the past, but we still have two years to go, folks. Cost. How much do things cost? No, we're going to whip it. And the budget plan is insane. And it would be a disaster fortunately. I don't think it would ever go through, but it gives you some insight into how this administration thinks. I'm troubled by the reality that even regardless of who's there, Charles, we've gotten ourselves so far in the hole that there's no easy solution out right now. It is like massive debt and deficits for decades to come, which is going to do exactly what you just said, a road, the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar. It's also goes back to, can we default? Gosh, I hope not. You have part of the institution refusing to accept financial responsibility. So at what point does the other side say, no, we're going to force you to have to accept it. And there's where that conversation of some default comes in. Maybe not all default, but maybe there's certain items that are willing to let go into default. But we can't afford that. The last time we had a really bad budget battle, the United States got downgraded. You know, our credit rating got downgraded. We haven't read that up yet.

"Commissioner Thornton. Thank you, mister chairman. I've been in and out of this conversation. And I just want to own that the conversation at hand, though it's steeped in racial identity. There are just some basic social justice elements to it that we all should be sensitive to today has been a really polarized day. But I don't think that though some of us in our delegation have never lived a single day as a black person, though some people are not delegation have never lived a single day as a poor black person, that that should prohibit you from being able to see a clear opportunity to write some eels. And all day today, I have been pointing out how the practices of our government are disenfranchising a certain subgroup of our population, which happens to be the majority here. And I just think that when you see phenomenons like this, that just should not make sense that show a clear imbalance that we should do our due diligence to try to write those wrongs. So two commissioner meals. I own the fact that today your whiteness triggered me because it is actually an identity that I recognize postures you differently from me. It comes with privileges that I simply just do not have and every single day that you get to go in one direction and I get to go to orange mound. I noticed I noticed the differences in what those experiences are. And I bring those experiences here to say that if I'm triggered, I mean, it just is what it is, right? And if this type of reparation conversation needs to start, unfortunately in 2023, then it just needs to start, which should have already done because on my way here, I looked on the wall and I saw the very first picture of a exclusive delegation of white men on the wall for 1962, so it took some time for us to even get here to be able to create this space, had our predecessors valued it, then it would have been created a long time ago. So it is very much so unfortunate and to our dismay as a county for us to have to wait so long for us to be able to write wrongs. And this is what the racial world gap tells us. It tells us that in my lifetime and anybody's lifetime in this room and some of us combine that we would not be able to close this gap. So Huawei any longer than today, we already should have done it. And if you can not understand it, then there is so much information out there for you to study. It is not my responsibility to teach you. It is your responsibility to educate yourself on these issues and take responsibility in the seat that you possess. Thank you. All right, thank you. Commissioner Thornton, by the way, those white men that she mentioned on the wall all happened to be Democrats, the party of miss Brittany Thornton. So my question is, why are you a Democrat dear? But commissioner Thornton and I've invited her to come on this program and I hope she does to explain herself. But what this woman said is flat out racist. Flat out racist. Could you imagine the national outrage if a white commissioner would have said, well, you know what, you're blackness is triggering to me. You can't say that, by the way. You're not allowed to. It's illegal or something. But there you go, Britney Thornton, a black progressive Democrat, putting whites in their place. Now I want you to hear me and I want to make sure that all the folks that are monitoring the program in the liberal world are listening to this. I believe that reparations is in fact a form of slavery. I do. You are forcing people to get out there, get a job, go to work, and then turn that money over to somebody else. That in my estimation is an equivalent to a modern version of slavery. And it's appalling. The fact of the matter is that they have elected people like this woman Britney Thornton and Memphis Tennessee. With these racist with this racist ideology, and that's okay? This kind of garbage is not only tearing Memphis apart its tearing apart the entire nation. The entire nation. And you ought to be outraged over this. Outraged. So we're going to be going to the phones, and I want to get your take on this. And I also want to hear from folks from Memphis, we have full eyes right now, so if you get a busy signal, keep dialing..
Shelby County Commissioner Britney Thornton Is Triggered by Whiteness

Trish Talks With Charles Thorngren, CEO of Legacy Precious Metals
"I'm back with Charles Thornton's CEO of legacy precious metals. Hey Charles, it's good to see you again. It's great to be back nice to see you as well. You know, we've talked a lot over the last year and a half or so. By the way, I just want to give a quick shout out to legacy precious models and Charles because this guy was there from the very beginning. As soon as I started this show, you guys have been quite a part of it. So we thank you for that sponsorship and for believing in the Trish Regan show in the very beginning. But I just want to point out, you and I spoke, I don't know, back in November, again in late November, and we're watching gold prices and some of the same things are true now that we're true then, but we're, I don't know, 12% or so, 11% since back then, even with this recent pullback, what's your thought on that? Well, let me just say we're very proud to be a sponsor of you. The opportunity came. We really made a very easy decision for us. We've been a big fan of you for a long, long time. So the pullback, you know what? Up 12% in the quarter, even with a pretty significant pullback right now. It's not surprising. This is what we've been talking about for over a year and a half now. And it really comes down to a simple process of disbelief. We have a market out there, and I want to talk about the equity market for just a quick second. That wants you to believe they have an answer for a problem they won't admit exists. This is the issue. You have people coming out. Who know better who no matter who no economics and know that we will see significant corrections still, but their job is to put you in a position so they can make money. So when we talk about a pullback in metals, it is absolutely bound to what we see in the equities market. The up 12% is not a surprise to me. The fact that we're much closer to 18% is significant for a quarter.

"Here's me selling taekwon Thornton. And I don't mean this as a guarantee that he's going to pan out. I don't think that's a guarantee. There's a lot of issues with him. But day two of the draft is about upside. They have sucked with drafting upside receivers last few years. In terms of outside receiver sky wars the one, if you want to say they should have taken sky more, that is a fair conversation to have. Right. I mean outside of sky more, though. In terms of upside, like somebody just brought this up in the chats and interesting point, they met with them three times. Romeo dubs? Would you rather tack on Thornton or Romeo dubs? Taekwondo. I'd rather, I think Romeo dubs is the safe. He's going to be a third or fourth wide receiver when he comes in. And he's going to be a third or fourth wide receiver at the end of his rookie contract. That's he's going to be like a 30 catch year guy. That's what he's going to be. And I'm good on that. I'm good with that guy. I don't need them to take that guy. They need a playmaker. They need a game breaker. I don't know, I'm not saying for sure taekwon Thorne is going to be that guy, but I'm saying of the guys on the board. He has as good or better of a chance to be that guy. I like the Miko harman fact. I don't know that he's like a one. I don't know that he's a guy you build around, but if you get that guy, taekwon Thornton is going to be really good in one on one coverage. And they, you know, they've addressed a lot of other needs in this draft. I think next year when Nelson Aguilar is off the books, when Jacoby Myers off the books, when he kill Harry's not here, we can next year we start talking, we go back to talking about that wide receiver in the first round. I know I've pushed back on that the last two years, right last year I said, it's not the year. They have too many other needs. I know I said this year, the board doesn't work that way, et cetera. Next year is the year. And if they can go like.
"thornton" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"Bet online where the game starts. So one other thing I'd say about Thornton are kind of calm patriots fans down is in regards to his projected draft stock. He didn't have great production. Is production was pretty up and down. And this goes back to college thing. Baylor's program has pretty much been a dumpster fire since 2017, not necessarily had some good teams, but there's been massive coaching staff turnover. There's been turnover higher up at the school. It all goes back to the art brial scandal and all of that. Right. Baylor has been a really difficult place to consistently play football. There's been a record number of guys transfer out of there. It's been a lot of moving pieces. I think they've had three starting quarterbacks and three years. So his quarterback play, by the way, last year, some of the tape that you watch on him, the amount of times that he has to adjust to the football. It was terrible. So predicting that they really liked about him too is his ability to adjust and finish at the catch point. His catch radius. Balls. With the body controls catch radius is massive, that I mean his size, too. He's a big guy. The point being again, he comes out last year as a career, you're a thousand yards, ten touchdowns, and I think it was 13 games. All of meanwhile, all of the top receivers in this draft outside of maybe Christian Watson, as good as this class was in terms of talent, there was great sustained production. Guys who were good for multiple years, right? Evan, we were texting about Chris olave as a first round pick in this draft in 2019. Right. So when you have all these guys who have been good for three or four years, I think Thornton based on his production in 2021 probably is, I don't know, 50 on the consensus boards, but he's in the top 100. I heard him at the top 100 guy. I know a lot of other boards had him at like one 55..
Eric Chats to Charles Thorngren, CEO of Legacy Precious Metals
"He's the CEO of legacy precious metals. And here he is, Charles Thornton, welcome to the program. Thanks, Eric. Thanks for having me. Well, I know the basics, but I thought there was an article recently that I read where treasury secretary Janet Yellen was just talking about the economic chaos that lies ahead. I mean, I think most people know the economy is to use the technical term L stinko. And so, you know, your financial expert, how did we get to this place? And what can people do about it? Because people are asking me, and I don't have the answer. What should I invest in? It's a big question, but I think if we look and we really are honest about how we got here. It's several administrations worth of bad money management. We have run a deficit in this nation that's unsustainable for quite some time. And we've seen that become even hyper exaggerated with this new administration. With $9 trillion in debt, you put yourself in a situation where your dollar doesn't have the equity that it's supposed to. And ultimately, when we talk about our economy, we want to talk about the lives that we're living, how it affects us. The quality of our life. And that's what we lose by having a weakened dollar. We parlay that into our retirement accounts. And where we keep our money usually in the equities markets. The market is so over exaggerated in its value right now. From years and years of quantitative easing and free money and easy money that that has to come into play and be
Elon Musk Takes 9.2% Stake in Twitter, Stock Soars
"So the guy's got a big Twitter account, shall we say? It's good news for the company because it had sort of been, I think in some ways kind of left for dead. It hadn't figured out how to monetize its business in ways that were going to really help it going forward. It had grown users. I would say over the last three years, we saw an improvement in the user base. So that was good news, and it certainly a sticky platform, but you have to be able to do something with all of that, right? So you have all these people there, you're growing the user base, but there's lots of competitors out there, and if you're not able to properly monetize the company, then it becomes very challenging. Anyway, so he is tweeting over the last couple of weeks. Hey, you know, should there be another platform? Do you think that Twitter really embraces free speech? So we got everybody kind of worked up and then lo and behold, it turns out that it was, I believe, on March 14th, that he made the purchase. So that means that was what about two weeks ago? Shares are up 50% since then. I think he bought it for just about $3 billion. So he's made a pretty sum. The question is, does he continue to make money going forward? And my answer, my thought on that is, yes, I mean, maybe not this week. Maybe the stock settles down, but ultimately, if he can join the board and I would think that he would want to join the board and I would think that the board would actually want him on there. Then he's going to have a hand in helping this company sort of figure out its strategy going forward, which means one being all encompassing in terms of bringing as many people to the platform as possible and allowing a lot of different viewpoints on that platform, which may mean getting a new tech team in, frankly, to adjust the algorithms so that you're not squashing things needlessly. And then the other thing is once he's on the board, maybe he can think even about how the company incorporates, I don't know, say something like crypto in its future, right? He's a huge crypto enthusiast. So maybe there's a play in this Twitter space again as it comes to monetize its user base to incorporate crypto and then the other thing that I'd be thinking about and I know we don't necessarily want to think this maybe there's a play here to sell the company ultimately to a private equity firm or to maybe a bigger tech firm or hey, maybe even like a PayPal that would be able to work in some of that crypto stuff. Now I'm just talking theoretically and I want to get to ahead of ourselves because right now I think we should all be sort of excited. I'm excited. The Elon Musk is coming to Twitter because I see him as kind of well just a revolutionary. He's a smart, brilliant guy, irreverent guy. He recognizes the insanity that's out there right now. Hey, Jack Dorsey even recognizes it. In fact, he was quoted today as saying, you know, you feels bad that he's kind of created this very single lane platform where only one view is tolerated. So I think there's a real chance here to improve upon this and look, I mean, my answer to bad speech is always more speech. You need people to be able to speak freely. And so if you can create that platform there with Twitter, then that's really going to be a very, very good thing. So ultimately, I think for shareholders, they should be looking at this and just rejoicing. Of course, they probably are because the shares are up 30% right now. But long term, there may be some real upside in this company. I mentioned sort of inability for a lot of different voices to be heard. And it brings me to one of our sponsors of this program, which is a Mac, they are doing what they can, everything they can to make sure all voices are hurt, especially conservative voices. I mean, it seems like a lot of voices shall we say are protected, but not when it comes to conservatives. And this is why amac is out there, the association of mature American citizens is standing up for you, standing up for the future of America conservative voices there for mature Americans that believe in freedom. And all the freedom loving things in American so want and want to hold dear. There's 2.3 million members here that share your values my values and you know what you get all kinds of great discounts, all that good stuff. So travel, hotel, cell phone plans, insurance plans, just go to amac dot U.S. slash Regan, my last name, REG and you can sign up. It's only $16 a year and you're going to get all this free stuff. So it's really, really worth doing. You'll make it back in a day. I'm so glad to be able to tell you about it. I really think it's something you should look at. So again, amac dot U.S. slash vegan for your membership and take a stand there for America. I want to get to oil because oil is continuing to move higher in today's market and I don't think we've seen anything yet. I actually think that oil is going to get really, really high. We're looking at about a 101 $102 per barrel right now. And that's in part, it's been eased because the president came out and said he was releasing the strategic petroleum reserve over the course of the next 6 months, which would be a 180 million barrels that would be released into the oil supply, but I'm going to tell you this, it's not enough. It's not enough, and it's only 6 months, and we've got to figure out a better long-term solution here. Because we can't be dependent on the likes of Russia. I'm sorry, but this is truly awful what we're witnessing right now. And what came out over the weekend is devastating and you can look at it in many places. I don't even want to show you. The kind of thing that makes you sick to your stomach and you think how can a nation be so horrible so horrible to its neighbors so horrible to its brothers and sisters and cousins and we see Russia, Russia is clearly capable of some pretty horrific awful stuff. So let me reiterate. We don't want to be giving them any business. We don't want to be giving them any money any any trade whatsoever in light of everything that we have learned. It's time for the United States of America to be completely self reliant. That means natural gas can't be coming from Russia. By the way, not just us. The free world in general. All of Europe needs to say enough. Now, it's coming out, you know, in the last 24 hours, we've heard more and more that we're looking towards greater sanctions, the U.S. both and the Europeans together are looking to sanction more of Russia, but I just question why we haven't done this already. What are we waiting for? I mean, we should be doing everything we possibly can to give Ukraine the assistance it needs. And that means sanctions like Russia has never seen before, that means military equipment to aid the Ukrainians, that means intelligence gathering, helping them, however we can. There's a lot we can do without actually finding ourselves in a situation that would be World War three. But we can't sit back and pretend that none of this is happening. We can't sit back and allow a monster like Vladimir Putin to do what we've seen him do. Meanwhile, oil, that's why I say you haven't seen anything yet. I mean, if you want to, if you want to play this one, the commodities fund is the way to go because there's no way that oil is going to go down any time in the near future. In fact, as we go into summer months, I would anticipate it's going to go higher and higher and higher. The refining capacity changes in the summer and there's additional things that need to be done to the oil in order to get it into gas tanks. And so that's going to be problematic. It comes at the same time when you have in the in the driving season, right? Some are driving season and it's all happening as the entire world just reacts with horror to Russia. So as more and more people and more and more countries, hopefully more and more countries, I'd like to see more and more countries shut Russia off, that means less of a supply out there that would drive up of course the price of oil. So it's so important that we start thinking strategically about how we fix this. And I'm sorry. I realize everybody wants these EVs. It's not going to happen. Tomorrow. And we need help tomorrow. We need help very much in the near future. So whatever can be done, we need to have some adults in the room in terms of our energy policy to think through this so that the American people are not paying the price with $9 at the gas pumps because that's what we're going to be looking at. And the answer is not giving them $800 in Maine or $300 in in California or saying, okay, we're going to forgive the 25 cents per gallon tax in Connecticut. No. The answer is having a long-term plan, a real solution. To make sure that we have energy for as long as we need it. For as many people as we need it. And that means a multi prong approach. I mean, I just can't believe the stupidity of these administration that wants to sit there and keep telling us, you know why? Here's why. There's no leadership. Absolutely positively no leadership. These people are all worried about getting reelected, and they've convinced the world that climate change is the biggest problem out there. So how are they supposed to turn around and say, well, actually, it turns out that Russia's the biggest problem out there, and now it's compounded by the fact that our lives are going to be harder as Americans because oil prices gas prices, energy prices are all moving up up and away. This is just one massive mess and I hope I hope. There are some smarter heads that will prevail. Look, I think if not, we're very likely looking at a recession. I've told you that before, I think a recession is very much something that could be in the cards, only because you can't have $9 a gallon and not have some kind of effect. We're going to see because we're coming into mid April here, how this affects earnings. All the companies with their earnings reports are going to be coming out. We'll get a sense of whether or not the consumer really can withstand these higher energy prices. I don't think they can. I mean, look, I guess it's good because people are going back to work and so maybe they have a little bit more money, you're seeing that reflected in the unemployment rate, which continues to drop. The number of jobs added, which was more than expected, maybe people are going to have a little bit more cash on hand to pay for this higher oil, but look, I think there's a real risk that we're heading into a recession as a result of these higher energy prices, not that I would trade it. I mean, I actually think that, you know, you make choices in life and you make choices as a country, and sometimes you just need to stand up for what is right. And standing up for Ukraine is the right thing to do. I want to get to legacy precious metals that I told you about in the beginning of the show because with all the chaos in the world right now, probably saying, how do I how do I manage this if I'm trying to think about my retirement? How do I hedge out all this inflation? And one of the very best ways to do this time and time again is gold. I mean, I have believed that for decades now. And I've been proven right. It's not always perfect, right? There'll be times when maybe the market out performs gold, but then when the market's down, that gold comes in pretty handy. And right now we're looking at nearly $2000 an ounce, they're on gold. So this is an investment worth having. This is an investment worth holding. And my Friends over at legacy precious metals have been doing this for years for about 40 years. It's a family run business, and they can help you. So I want to give you their number one 8 6 6 5 8 9 zero 5 6 zero one 8 6 6 5 8 9 zero 5 6 zero legacy p.m. investments dot com Charles Thornton. He runs the company. He was just on the show the other day really wonderful group of people that can assist you as you try and figure out how you're going to hedge out your future. How you're going to hedge out inflation because you're getting it one way or the other. I mean, best case scenario, the fed gets two to 3% a year, right? But right now we're looking at 6.7%, 7.7 .9%. It's like sort of a dyslexic moment. 7.9% in terms of inflation. I think it's going to get far worse than that.

"Wanna know why this girl crashed and broke her butt cheeks on the ice, trying to do a double Sal khao. Last time I tried to do a double Sal Kyle, animal rights organizations were at my house. And boy were they pissed, but I don't even watch one second. Have you? Yes, you're not alone by the way. The like Olympics to Olympics. I want to say four years ago. The opening ceremonies had like 40 million viewers in America and then last year at Tokyo is like 28 million a huge drop off. This year, it was like 12 million. Like a disaster drop off. And what is it? Irish roses number one sport is figure skating. I like figure skating unironically, I've written about it twice already. So there's no avoiding it. There's no avoiding. Would you ever have thought that knowing Jerry Thornton as well as we know him that that would be something he actually wrote about at one point? You know what? Cheese is off audience to no end, which is why I love to do it. So Nathan Chen, the Americans said a record in the short program. And so I wrote this thing comparing him to rocky and rocky four, like going into a hostile territory in a dead of winter in a communist country where everyone's against him and he summoned the courage to come up and randomly figure skating trivia. I'm the only guy in this room right here. All right, go ahead. Your arms ever kissed Nancy Kerrigan. Okay. I think you meant to say kneecapped. No. You really think I whacked her in the leg? The only leg I never looked suspiciously like a glue. You would. The only leg I've ever whacked was my middle leg. You kissed Nancy Kerrigan on the knee. On the face. Oh, I see. On a knee. What are you crazy? No. Now, where's she going? Why? Nancy Kerrigan is lovely, but at that time I remember thinking, I have more of an attraction to Tonya hard. Yes. Because she gave you that vibe that say you were in school with her. She was just as likely to make out with you in the hallway as beat you up and take your lunch money and both had appeal. But it would take either one of them. You know you could sleep with her, but she might burn your house down. The bad thing about Tonya Harding is that even when she was young now, in particular, you don't know if you squeeze it too hard if you're gonna ooze pus. You know, because she's that much of a piece of trailer. The greatest thing that ever happened to her was Margot Robbie playing her. Oh my gosh. She should have won the Oscar just for passively making her likeable. Make me suspend disbelief long enough to think you could possibly be Tonya Harding. To make me forget that I brought up pus in the same sentence. It's just going to ignore that. So no, but Nancy Kerrigan, I did a live shot. See, here's what happened was. She was in her stranded in her house. She couldn't leave her house because the media was on her front lawn after she got the whacking from Tonya Harding, right? She was before OJ. It was the biggest story ever. So I did fake live shots in front of a green screen, the weather board. I met with a picture of her house behind me. And I was bob smithers. This is bob smithers reporting from the carrigans front lawn again and so far no one's come out and it still looks the same a couple of leaves have blown by, you know, just and I do them every ten minutes updates from Nancy Kerrigan and it was all phony. She called into the show. She heard her family was sitting there watching bob smithers doing these fake reports. They thought it was funny, so she called in and it was like a huge coup for us to get the talk to her. So then I saw her at a bar. I don't know which one was on Boston. You know, hey, huggy kiss, and I was like, Nancy tarragon. Thank God it wasn't Tonya Harding. That was like 9 94. A story that today, if you didn't live it, you have no idea how big it was. What's your name? The anchor was married to Mari povich. I should know I know Chung. Was doing the network newscasts from the mall in Oregon state where Tonya Harding was training like it was a mole. It could go to the gap and then to hot topic and then walk over and watch her train and they did the. Like in the economy today, the stock market took a tumble in this Tonya Harding, skating behind it was surreal. And everybody because we're all so stupid and we would no smarter than people thought that Nancy Kerrigan was like this princess and privileged and she had life so easy. Her father was working like three jobs in order to keep her skating. He was just a working class guy. Regular guy in stone. There we go. And that's where I did my last people. More on that nuclear attack from China, but first this update on what's going on with Nancy Kerrigan and Tanya. That was honestly the biggest story ever. And the story got completely blown away once OJ killed those two people. When June of 94. Wow. Remember the Olympics where Tanya finally gets out to skate there? And the whole world is sick of this. And want no part of the Americans. And she goes out to skate and she broke her skate lace. And she goes over to the judges, and that's in the movie. They do a great job. Like a kabuki makeup is all streaming down her face or whatever. And they let her go rather than tell her well, go piss up a rope honey, you missed your chance. They go, all right, we're not dealing with this. Go fix it. And they took the next one. Oh my gosh, I shouldn't know this. It was Jose art from Canada. She had to suddenly go on to it's like being a comic and you're waiting for your turn and you're not ready yet. You, now, you know, like what? So she didn't skate nearly as well as she would have and then Tony gets to go out there and carrying and came in second. The Irish rose against can't get over the fact. How do you know the figure skater that had to bump up her spot? And Nancy ended up losing to aksana baiul. From Ukraine who didn't skate although I always yeah. She just threw in a jump at the end. Like, oh, that's means what to me. I don't know, but Nancy should have won, but didn't only because she got piped. Maybe Mikey at it. I would like son of her by you all any day. You know what I'm saying? I really would. And I'm not kidding you. Can I tell you a quick Jeff torberg story because there will be no others? Jeff. You guys, you guys, honestly, the Jeff Tor bork story. Have you ever had any gifts? No, did he have to move up his skating? No, this is nothing. Okay, all right. Nothing to do with skating whatsoever. But if you Google Jeff Tor board, you're going to find out that he had an impact on Major League Baseball history. In several forms. Jeffrey tambor? No. Tour Borg. Sorry, former catcher for the White Sox, the Dodgers, manager of the White Sox. Remember Jeff doorbell? Absolutely. All right, so this will be the final, and I will say this now. Unabashedly. The final Jeff torberg story I'll ever tell on this podcast. Thank God. I'm in the elevator at Fenway Park. Fenway always, yeah, she's used to Fenway Park. We all met the elevator. And here's Jeff torbert comes walking off. And you know, baseball card collectors can recognize people's faces. This isn't as good as the Dave justy story. No. That was good. But this is walks off the elevation. Oh, Jeff torberg. He goes, how you doing? I go. You caught one of Sandy Koufax is no hitters, you know. He looks taps me in the chest smiles goes. Perfect game, and don't you forget it..

"And the part that jumped out at me was Brooke said the thing that bothered me the most was that Sean kind of indicated that he thought I was faking how hurt I was. And that really bothered me. So after I finished adding Brooks into the chapter and had talked to him for a long time and added it, I called Shawn back. And I said, I talked to Brooks. It was great. He's going to be in the chapter, but just so you know, he's really upset that you thought he was faking. And Sean got kind of quiet for him and he went holy bleep. That's not what I intended at all. He said, I got to call this guy. And he did. And I think those two kind of worked it out and took it from there. But it was an important part of the book for me. And I think it was an important part of the book for Sean as well. Yeah, again, because those guys trained together in the off season. That was not like two people who had never met. They were pretty much Friends. Prior to well, Brooks is one of those Boston guys. You know, and all the Boston based guys, they all trained together down at warrior, you know, they're all down there. If you go in the summer now, you know, all the bruins guys and all the other players in the league who are Boston based or Massachusetts, guys, they're all down. They're skating. Jack eichel was here last summer. Yeah, that helped fire up the rumors. So yeah, I love this book for a lot of reasons. It's funny you had told me, I think maybe the last time you were on, you teased that you were writing a book. And then when we finished up, I was like, let me guess who it is. And Jean Thornton was my first guess. I said I bet it's on Sean Thornton and you were like, yeah, because I think you teased like our broods fans will love this because they love this guy. And I was like, oh, Sean Thornton. So.

That was That's Amore which went over very big by the way a lot of people saying and so you should take that to Worcester radio off. You know. We'll see. I wish that resume wish they'd hurry up and review my file now. But there I like, you know, I like Chuck Burks a lot. He's he's he's a good guy wage, it's going to happen, it's going to happen. It's it's it's a big company, that's the problem. And so I get around a joke I just but you know it's like fifteen hundred a week. We have Joe and Jerry here. They, they, I guess picked this out. Are you Tom Jones? Who isn't he's unbelief? True story. My neighbor growing up, took his parents to see them and was sitting and like, really good seats and about the third row and kind of forgot who he was with and just Pig. Allowed pointed at his crotch and said, there's no way. That thing is real. It's a real squash. I got it at the grocery store. Legendary, Tom's, just had a hit record in England at the age of eighty. Something, the oldest man ever to have a number one record the UK charts, I think 81 years old and he's on The Voice. These things still well and he in his day off, maybe the most powerful voice you could hear. Now you might not like the way dressed or whatever, but I think that Joe and Jerry are true fans..

So, it's not a family movie, but you can't, if you can get past that, if you have a mature enough juice, nobody that wouldn't love that movie.

"thornton" Discussed on Shades of Strong? | Shifting the Strong Black Woman Narrative
"Welcome to black from the past a segment of the shades of strong podcast where we highlight black women throughout history and their accomplishment in this segment were highlighting willie mae thornton better known as big mama thornton big mama. Thornton was a blue singer and songwriter. From montgomery alabama whose career lasted from the nineteen forties until the early eighties. She the nickname of big mama at the apollo theater in new york city in the fifties and i chose her for a couple of reasons. One her name is willy. And my grandmother's name was also willie but also because up until a couple of years ago two or three years ago. I had never heard of big mama thornton. And that's a little shocking. Considering what she's best known for big mama thornton is best known for her recording of a twelve bar blues vocal given to her by songwriters. Jerry lieber and mike stiller. The tune was called hound. Dog hound dog with its openly. Sexual lyrics was a big hit when it was released in nineteen fifty three it topped the rb charts and it sold two million copies. Despite its success. Big mama thornton was paid only five hundred dollars three years later. Another version of hound dog was released and that version was recorded by elvis presley. That version brought him immeasurable. Fame and success and it is one of a laundry list of examples of black artists facing incredible inequity in all kinds of creative fields and industries. Despite that egregious blow big mama thornton had a long career and ended up dying in la in nineteen eighty four. At the age of fifty seven. She was inducted into the alabama music hall of fame. Her home state in twenty twenty. There is a video of big mama thornton singing hound dog on youtube. I ran across it three years ago. I believe in its footage from an atlanta based show that she performed on called the hot harlem review and i highly recommend you go and find it on youtube and watch it because it's amazing and she's amazing. I hope you enjoyed the segment until next time..

All the that always things with the that you say security hurly-burly you started writing it East carolina university and you now writer and teacher living in asheville With your husband for children. And so how does how does Being raised in a small town And the life that you're leading inform your writing and and particularly the book book of thorns. Yeah i loved growing up in in kerry beach. It was ideally in. Every way. And i think i do still have that small town Sensibility of family and neighborhood and community and that definitely informs my writing the year thornton. Honey is sort of unofficially set in asheville. I i don't name it as as asheville but Locals and folks who've been would certainly recognize some of the places and i think that just the sense of of community and family It really informs how i ride as as opposed to you know. I don't tend to set things in in big cities. Ashville is actually a pretty small town A really cool town but a pretty small one and so i. Yeah i definitely think that you know when. I'm when i'm crafting a story. I'm really thinking about the the characters and And how they how they function within their whole community are saw Emmy right Sort of about the mystery and wonder of life as you say and it's Contemporary fiction that focuses on these themes of second chances redemption and finding the beauty and the world around us. And i'm curious to what draws you to these things i think that on drawn to those particular themes of of second chances and redemption and learning how to see the the beauty in the around us because it's such a universal set of of themes. I think everyone is going through. You know that kind of thing. We're all making mistakes and hoping that we're given second chances. We're looking for forgiveness and very often in situations where we're called to forgive others And the the beauty in the world around us. I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in things that aren't going well or especially two thousand twenty the way we wish things were that we very often don't stop to take stock of of the things that that are wonderful and the the small beauties especially i think is is really what draws me is is the the small things that that make our live special. So what kind of teaching a year engaged in. Oh gosh i have. I think i have the best teaching job ever. I teach mostly creative writing and some literature to middle school and high school. Kids through a program called elevate life and art which is a home school enrichment program. So i have very small classes but I'm lucky enough to have classes filled with students who really want to learn to write and students really love to read. So it's the it's the best of all worlds. As far as a teacher is concerned really engage students. And who really love the subject. And and i feel really lucky. I've got some kids in my writing classes. That are just amazing. I feel like i'm i'm seeing. The you know the the the little middle school faces of people that will be on the shelves and in the future. Some some really wonderful talent and and i'm i'm happy to be part of their journey when when i started writing i was in that same age but You know typically in school. You don't really get that opportunity to to to write creatively in your classroom. So i'm i'm happy that they have that in and hoping that that it will keep those fires lit for them
Kentucky's 'Cocaine Bear' reportedly will be subject of Universal Pictures movie with Elizabeth Banks
"There's a movie coming out called Cocaine Bear. And if the title sounds bizarre, it's nothing compared to what the story is actually about. So you might know who Elizabeth Banks is. She was in the hunger games, and she's been in a bunch of other movies, too. She is directing this movie called Cocaine Bear. Now, if you heard of a movie called Cooking there, you probably think it's on SciFi Channel alongside shark, NATO or movies like that Cocaine bear is actually a true story. It's a thriller based on back in 1985, a drug smuggler named Andrew Thornton. Dropped a duffel bag filled with £70 of Coke from his plane over Georgia on the way back from a drug run to Colombia. So he went down. Got the drugs. He's flying back. He found out that this plane was flying too heavy, so he had to push the cocaine off the flight. And when he did it landed in the woods. And I guess ah Bear found it much and ate the cocaine. No and died. Oh, no, but it's even weirder. So he was a former narcotics cop who started smuggling so he went to the dark side and the run that is in the movie is took place on September 11th Weird 1985. He dropped because it was too heavy for the plane. Some time after the Georgia dump. This guy tried to jump out of the plane as well. But as he was trying to jump out of the plane, he got caught in his parachute and fell like a stone landing in some guy's driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee. He died on impact. The plane crashed 60 miles away in North Carolina when his body was discovered he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Gucci loafers, night vision goggles. He had 15 million worth of Coke, 4500 and cash, gold, Krugerrands knives and two pistols. Wow. Holy crap. The body of the Bear was discovered three months later, along with 40 open plastic containers and cocaine residue. They think the bear ate the cocaine. And there's the end of the bear.
