"Know i don't know public safety officers i did. There's just and i know that it seems silly to talk about what we call things but i mean i think that's something. We spent a lot of time talking about over the last year. And there's just a part of me that thinks like over the you know several hundred years of history in our country with police particularly in some communities like is there too much injury. Is there too much trauma and we need to you know. Wipe the slate clean as far as what. We call people how they're dressed how they function and really reinvent public safety. Because it's hard for me to envision a time post george floyd in some parts of the country where the word police. That's something people want to be. That's something people trust. I just think that's that's going to be almost impossible in certain parts of our country. I just think there's something wrong when it comes to the video of george floyd death at we can't unsee in the same way. I think about my own trauma surrounding school. Violence like school will never be a one hundred percent safe place to me ever again now just calling the building something different with that. Change it for me. No of course. Not but in some ways i think the reinvention of school we've seen over the past year with virtual schooling and being at home. It did it. Did it changed for some people and some people felt enormously safe and they got to see it with fresh eyes. That's not true for everybody. But you know i just. I wonder if part of what we need to reflect on a year later is what we can't get back in many communities across the country when it comes to the police. I think that maybe right. And i i do you think as we talk about recruitment and retention of police officers that thinking about what the job is and who is best positioned to do it and what kind of traits were looking for in people is enormously important. This brings to mind for me. The sort of political sphere controversy over ted cruz tweet. Comparing a russian army add army ad. I saw that the us army add talked about us army corp. emma malone lord and senator cruz compared that ad which uplifted army corp. malone lord and her raising by a lesbian couple in san francisco and lots of just kind of other aspects of her that showcase diversity and and showcase the the many people who have a role to play in the united states military he contrasted that with this very violence and aggressive russian ad and he praised the russian ad and said maybe having awoke military. Isn't the best thing for us. And i just was watching his tweets about this thinking. Imagine thinking that in twenty twenty one a better depiction of a soldier is a violent aggressor. Then someone who really fulfils the us military's mission which in so many ways has become more oriented to humanitarian aid and what the military does overseas is still a mix of things for sure we. We still do violence. We still do aggression. We still do war but we also do a lot of humanitarian work. A lot of infrastructure creation for other countries hot just legal work across the globe and the military's celebration of that willingness to talk about it. Willingness to showcase people like corporal malone lord has not changed overnight and is certainly not put us all the way in a new space. We know that there are there major problems especially with the way that sexual violence occurs in the military and extremist ideology grows in the military. So we're not all the way there but we've seen this transition right and the transition continues and it is not helped along by serving senators making fun of it. And so if and i bring this up just to say if we want to have a serious conversation about policing in the united states about public safety in the united states is not helped along by self serving people making fun of changing our language or rolling their eyes about talking about mental health efforts and community policing in those kinds of things like we just. I think there is a way to be a person who knows loves cares about police officers and and who is deeply committed to sitting down and saying something is very wrong here and it cannot stand and i'm willing especially as we think about the fact that a year has passed since george floyd died and we still get a new name every couple of weeks if someone who's been killed by a police officer to say enough of the snarky nece about this and enough of the culture wars. This is a topic that affects everyone especially as crime rates are going up. I thought what was particularly nasty about that is that the ad was based on a real person. Like what's wrong with you to go after an ad features a real human being. But i mean we all know what's wrong with tickers. I think you're right and i would. I would say to someone who feels very defensive of the police or just someone who was affected by the video of george floyd's death and who feels like derek. Chauvin should be in prison but who is very turned off by phrases like de-fund the police and feels like that's a radical notion that recruitment and retention of police officers is doing that work and the worst possible way. I really believe that. I think that you know just really increases the tension and the conflict and the scarcity mindset if you care about public safety and you don't think there's anything wrong with policing it doesn't really matter if they can't recruit police officers if you think everything's perfect but they can't recruit police officers than that's still a problem or retain police officers in this mass exodus to me that that's something that that particular issue should be something that we should all see like. Okay well this is a red flag. And this is reaching a crisis level in which we're not going to have options to do good policy especially in the face of rising crime rates for the whole breadth of diversity when it comes to communities across the country either communities that phil they're both over policed and under police communities that love their policing like no matter where you fall on..

This is going down. I don't know if it's true but it's one of those now. I can't think of his name. The marine corps general that became the secdef madison madison mad dog. Mattis are a lot of quotes attributed to him. It's hard telling if he ever actually said all of these things but when you hear speak it's like i could. I could see him saying that. Supposedly he told a story of how he was on a flight and was watching millennial men who were having trouble getting their bags into the overhead bins and just said we are so fucked if there's a draft and how true is that so even if he didn't say it i yeah i agree we are. We're almost fucked without the draft. I mean you had a lot of guys going through boot camp now. That pretty much had to be remedial bootcamp because it's all like oh i've i've talked to people that are still in that world with the army army basic training.

Call a week you at the payphone and you know you had to call collect 'cause they weren't giving you any money for that and i mean obviously the army's the army general is a little softer than the marine corps. In when you're in like a signal imus they weren't trying to. They wanted us tough. But it wasn't like i'm sure you guys didn't get fucking phone. Calls him once. He gets a little bit different. But you know. I mean we had. I think i went. I went to boot camp during christmas time. So we at one five minute phone. Call down christmas and all of them that i remember all i didn't take it i ain't nobody call them whatever but all the ones that took it and i'm getting thrashed. No my basic training experience was much softer. I went to fort jackson which they had. I think we were the first class. There was integrated male and female so we had females so of course immediately there was like a prostitution ring. People doing stuff like sneak off into dumpsters to fuck. Oh yes like stairwells. Your wife was in the army so she told me all the story. Oh yeah yeah. And they had just gone through something where. I don't know a bunch of parents abass trainees. Head like written letters to a- congressman. So it got even softer because god forbid if you know maybe get yelled out or something. stress cards.

"Sir is a question from Erica. He says I have a three and a half year old kid named poppy and I just discovered that my sister-in-law he lives in a different different country into I've only met twice dog about a year ago whom she also named poppy. She didn't tell she was doing it. sister-in-law just this week has started sharing bearing pictures of this dog on our family facebook group only to me this. Do I say something about how weird this is. Joy Ask why she chose the same name door just not mentioned in in the hopes to avoid family drama. Am I wrong in thinking this Israeli fucking wit not wrong but you know she's just found out that this dog that the sister-in-law's it's hard for a year has this name and she says they've only met twice clearly. Not Very close doesn't matter maybe. The Human Papi was not on the sister-in-law's radar at Matsue Suchet. But that's in itself a full of the sister his way round. I think it is when naming a child I think you think is there. Anyone in our family was previously named an animal this. Yes I think that's something you have to consider. Am I think he should apply in the other direction. I think Olbia a dog named in tribute to human is less demeaning than a human named after a dog arguably nonetheless. When you're naming a pet you should think all the humans in my family named this and just do a bit of a search around like this? sister-in-law is not huge hugely distant relation. Even if if they do live in different countries and dino each other she should've remembered that daughter was called poppy. I think this is Paul for you. Also think the spouse of the SD obeying a sibling of apparen- Erin the kid poppy might have piped up. Yes don't you think I do. Yeah also there's no one else in the family mentioned this is what's up with this family. Well maybe they they have but they thought the person who's going to be the most offended and weirded out by Erica and so they haven't told Erika that they no yeah Erica's got prior claim to the name. Exactly I I. I think she's in a stronger position. Maybe they don't want to upset. The sister in law is a relative newcomer to the name. Popey that said all of that said on the line between human names and dog doc names poppies in the middle. I would say it's not buster or fighter but it's not you know. James Jemma is somewhere in the middle so I think if you choose news that name for your child. There's always a risk that someone's going to call the dog puffy. Find me anyone this century. He's named a dog Friday but the point is there's very few you children Cova de thing. Is Eric clearly has some grievances. She wants event. What is the best way for her to vent those grievances and I will also say that these grievances are probably Oh neat relevant? I say the next fifteen years. Gt the usual lifespan of dogs. At with humor I would say I think if you come out and ask from the position of having been offended then immediately you'll sister-in-law who you hardly see. Oh No is going to be on the defensive and inevitably the argument that you'll tend to in had offense will be that she see how these on which in itself could lead to a much larger argument. What about this as a fun game? Then she posts a picture of Canine poppy on the facebook group. And you reply with a photo comment of human poppy posed to mimic that photo. Well that's really endorsing as history inlaws decision which he doesn't approve revolt. She's not going to rename the dog now issue but I mean she doesn't have to start a game in which she's directly comparing her child to Callan. I'm not sure that's going to result her issues with it. Be Know How how people get viral success with like recruiting baby photos. When they're adults or something like that I know it well? I think this could be one of those as a benefit but also it's just kind of fun game and then maybe your sister in law will be like okay. Well here's something that would be amazing. See Human pulpy replicate Maybe a bonding thing again to quote from her email am I wrong in thinking. This is really fucking weird. Said you're not wrong. Yeah right so. This doesn't sound like somebody who wants to start a viral game based around the comparison just giving her options. We've endorsed our feelings of wrongness but it's very hard to turn back time. And she seems reluctant to make a scene given that she's asking for permission to make the agree giving another option option. Then that's why I'm saying one. Well placed humorous bitchy comments just let it linger for ten years. You can't do anything about it but you'll make your feelings known without provoking a full-fledged fledge argument yeah let people do renamed oaks do they. Yeah like if you acquire a dog that is not a puppy. The has your yeah it might segue into a different name. In fact cocoa that is not her name. Alcott Coco was from Battersea Don cat home and originally was adopted by my friend who couldn't pronounce the same that she was given so he just cooking but we kept it but that's a bit different having a different owner but I mean and if she's keeping puppies a bit weird is weird for the animal for the same owner to be calling you a different name. Isn't it Meg Ryan renamed daughter when had to his baby Meg Ryan on just said the Daughter didn't like Charlotte. She looked like a daisy so a year old changed the name. Today's each year look Charlotte to the daisy people. Yeah I can see overlapped. But my my grant Heller had an only Rachel in a chain and I am a real time. Emma Gra would just for being friends and having around the things you might and they have just coming to light and knowledge inheritance the summer balance Frenchie ground and they won't see you take me and my partner author or expenses paint road trip around the West because of America something beyond our wildest dreams totally an US Army Corp snacks and that's drunk. Jean please often is it. Okay to friends. Stand seven sentence. Please heading alley the answer. Ethical is ethics an issue here. It's it's not like you have been stringing these friends along in the hope that they will come into money and then spend it on you. It's a long game. Also it's not enough inheritance tints for them to radically change their lives right like twenty grand. Yes is a non trivial amount of money. But it's not like this you're GonNa go and live in a mansion right. It is precisely the trip of a lifetime money but it's not house of a lifetime money so they he's in the right way probably signed from three Investi so I think if they thought what would we do do travel. Who would like to travel with these people? How would we like to convert this money into pleasure? This way. I think it's okay to let them them. Unless you feel like it would leave you with this sense of obligation that you could never really discharge well even if it does though. I think you have to acknowledge that. In your own head I I used to invite you. I mean essentially they are buying themselves a holiday. Extra they could have chosen to fly first class they could have opted for valet parking at the airport poor but the point is they have chosen to take you Rachel as their kind of captive entertainment like something. They want to make their holiday day better. So you should be flattered but you don't I don't think there's an obligation there. They obviously have decided they're going to have a better time with you that they wouldn't offer it if they weren't okay with offering it. I think they have the freedom not offer this. You having the amount of qualms you have about. It suggests that you're not the kind of person that railroad them into offering. But if the question of lies behind this question in is how can we repay them for this in a way. We actually can't afford. I think you're not under obligation but it would be nice of you to volunteer to do some of the tedious ship. You have to do when you're traveling like like volunteer to do the spread g European chip spreadsheet this will be a tedious task also. Td's I'm happy to take this. TD's spreadsheet eight task off your hands. Let Me Know Madonna Rain Room for you know but there are boring things buying the maps downloading the satnav booking the car rental that kind of thing they could do that be like a virtual. PF your friends so they they don't have to do the boring stuff and also probably just acknowledge you can and a half to go to their choice of restroom. You know. You're going to have to let them choose the hotels. You can't really complain when they're paying for everything that is slightly awkward. Thing is the problem that you will. I feel like you are just the chattels because like when I was eighteen I went to an Italian school in Florence for few weeks and I had two good friends that I wonder if he is still friend called sues. WHO's at American? WHO's about ten years older than me and another was a Swiss banker who was Super Super Nice? But but it's just like Susan was a student I was eighteen. Had been working for twenty five pounds a day so we didn't have loads of money whereas the Swiss banker wanted to get. It's quite post places and she really didn't care about the money because she was good for it she was like I'd like to go to these places. I don't WanNa go my own. I'd like the company of these people. And and it doesn't really mean anything to me to pay whereas we for a little bit. Like kind of meal concubines. Yes but you felt that but you still went yet. I choose super nice and I wanted to spend time with her all. Have the so and the cheese plate. Then I'll discuss how I feel. There is something lovely about getting to share travel experience with your friends and and maybe this is why these friends alike. We want to share are just last year. We went to Japan and by coincidence I think three different groups of friends and were in Japan at the same time and it was so great and partly because some of those friends had been before and so they could kind of be like. This is a good thing to do his go unpolished. Others would discovering hiring it at the same time as us and also done research. I'm too lazy to do that kind of stuff so it was really great. It's just you have this agreement with your friends that like if you want to go off and do your own one thing Sundays. That's okay yes you'd have to spend every minute together. We'll have every meal together does work that out before the and maybe that's a good point right show. Maybe you you should actually put that forward as if you're being nice to them rather than benefiting yourself maybe it's so generous of each take us away with you be pleased feel you have to tell us all the time in fact. Why don't we allocate a couple of afternoons where we are and things so that we're not ruining your special trip tat but also like don't let me rattle the time because I find it claustrophobic in straggling throwing dollar bills at my feet Gimme upgraded? Then fuck off take out of school. No doubt awesome Sir aw. Halloween.

"You can call us at Seminole one to five eight zero five zero back to the phones in a minute. As I mentioned earlier, Donald Trump yesterday in a pretty extrordinary press conference in the Roosevelt room for a lot of reasons, but mainly because he was flanked by farmers and ranchers mall across the country. And here's some of what he said, to be proud of the unmatched grit, and face and skill of the American farmer. It's my honor to do what we did. I wanna thank. Sonny Perdue, and all of the people that worked so hard. On getting this done. It's being implemented right now, billions of dollars is already flowing into treasury that we never saw before we never saw ten cents from China, China, didn't give us anything. Now they giving us billions and some of that money is going to go to the farmers to help them out during a period, where trade has been very unfair to them. I spent a lot of time yesterday. A lot of time. Saluting farmers. Thank you. What we'll do do a subsidy program. We're gonna help you in one of the farmers. Look, we don't want subsidy sir. I said, what are you talking about? See everybody is asking me for subsidy, everybody sonny's, asking us for money. They don't care what you call it. They all want money and anyone money. He said, just give us a flat table. Just give us a level playing field. He said, we don't want any handouts. We don't want subsidies. We don't want anything, so just give us a level playing field. And I said, I can't believe you're saying it literally, I've been with so many different groups of I said, I'm gonna give you subsidy or I'm going to give you money. They jumped so happy, you people did not want it. They are it because nobody can compete with us. Nobody has the equipment we have nobody has the skill. We have, and I would say, nobody has the soil and land. We have when you say that, so we give them a level playing field and we're helping out a little bit doing a time of trade. I don't wanna say war, because I don't think it's a war. So war, it's a war winning at very. Big. But we take a lot of money will go to help out farmers, and we're giving them that level playing field so important. So I wanna thank all of the farmers for being with us. And I wanna thank great congressmen and senators that I tell you what I if I was in the farming ranching world, and I hear the president is states have that level of affection for what I'm going through. And talking about how great farmers are I just I, I would just swell with pride. I mean, it would be impossible to think it's I think it's great. We have more cuts from that. We also have this bombshell story from the Washington Post will they bombshell, I think it's fantastic. Senator Kramer's a part of that he's going to join us next hour. So we'll be talking about that, too. First time caller, go to the front line to mention that we do that every Friday. So if your first time caller, let Daniel know that when you call eight hundred two two eight zero five five zero Bernie in Bismarck has a shout out for a fallen hero. What's on your mind Bernie? I lost an article in the Korean war, and about fifteen years ago, my dad and two of his sisters were asked by the army to give a because they had found a mass grave and to the DNA testing. They did find my own Kel, and the army was going to ship him back and give him military honors here. But the family you cited, it was so many years to just let him rest in peace, and that's my story. Good story. It really is amazing. Do you think of that often does Memorial Day? The Memorial Day make that come a little more prevalent. All the time all the time all the time. Yeah. Yeah, that's incredible. That really is where is he buried? He was in North Korea. I, I have no idea where. But I just I do know that they did find find a mass grave, they did find his DNA and, you know, I think of it all the time, because when, when he went over to Korea I was about four or five years old. And I remember seeing him once. So he's kind of kind of a special, especially okay? I found out that they, they did find his most. Now the remains have not been brought back then. No, no. Family decided to leave him there, because it was too long, and they decided to just let him rest in peace. Is that right? Wow. Pretty amazing burning. Thank you for sharing that story. Thank you create it. Let's remember those heroes, folks. Let's remember those heroes. That's what this weekend is all about. You really is. I think Veterans Day Memorial Day. July fourth should be mandatory school. You must be in school. If you're a taxpayer funded entity public institution. And the curriculum that day outta be hearing the stories firsthand. I really think that let me just tell you about this story before I got back the phones because I saw this last night broke last night. Okay. So to recap tiny Fisher, you heard on the program yesterday. I forget what day we did. We had Tommy on Wednesday, Wednesday. Okay. Tommy Fisher and Fisher industries crew is building. Now they wouldn't tell us where they were building because it is a private job. And they don't want a lot of attention down. They just want to get the job done right. And and and, and five it lands. So it isn't like it's the federal government that can protect it or whatever while the word is out now and where it is in New Mexico and the Washington Post all kinds of pictures about it yesterday. And an article about it, you know pretty phenomenal. Now the article was all about. Here's I'm gonna read you the article. But the, the article is, basically trying to be a bombshell piece that the president is interfering with the procurement and messing with it with the. Corps of engineers, and others and trying to get a wall built. Here's the story. President Trump is personally and repeatedly urged the head of the US army Corp engineers to award a border wall contract to a North Dakota construction firm whose top executive is a GOP donor and frequent guest on Fox News, according to four administration officials, this thing is chock full of fake news. I'm not even going to go into all the fake news. I'll deal with that a little later on with cabin, but it's fake news. I know this because the president, I mean, I brought up Fisher industries directly to him and a letter from, from from Senator Kramer, and, and he's like check this out, check this out. He isn't saying hire these guys he's saying, look if they can do what they say they can do. Why would we put them in the mix? He's trying to deal done. He never knew about any of it till it all came around from union, Kevin Kramer. And but again, the crew I what everybody has said is here's a company that can do it. The core is not doing it. What's going on? Bring a better plan, what the what the article says that he personally repeatedly urged the core to award, the wall contract to them give it to them. You know. So that's fake news in phone calls. White House meetings and conversations aboard Air Force One during the past several months. Trump is aggressively pushed Dickinson, North Dakota based Fisher industries to department of homeland security leaders and Lieutenant General Todd, the commanding, general of the army corps, according to administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal discussions. The swamp gentlemen, the push for a specific company has alarmed military commanders and DHS officials learned alarm them, ladies and gentlemen. It's a Larmer them because it's called accountability. It's alarm them, because they're little cushy deals. They have with former core fficials and other places are getting exposed. It's alarm them. Because the incompetence of not being able to build a wall on time, what we hear the other day. This is what prompted all of this on Wednesday morning. One point four billion dollars had built one point eight how's the wall? Right. Just ridiculous. Even say miles one point eight not even qualify as plural Semite was summoned to the White House again Thursday after the president's aids told Pentagon officials, including general Mark milley the army chief of staff that the president wanted to the border barrier. Again the president. He's the president. He wants the border protected. He's promised in his campaign and census president that he wanted protected. Why shouldn't he be calling people there to say, are you doing this? Are you getting it done? If they were worth it if they if they were had nothing to worry about, and it was being done. Why would you need to call? So more on the article coming up, and it's pretty store near I haven't posted on our Facebook page. Clip the show. Tommy Fischer's comment from Wednesday's show with Steve Hallstrom in the morning show in the articles. Well, so it's, it's, it's amazing. What's going on here? We've been following the story for a long time in a lot of folks are interested in it. So I wanted to make sure you knew that story Mark is a first time caller, Mark. Glad to have you what's on your mind. Yeah. I I've been wanting to call. I just wanted to give start on last week spends over in the Beirut bombing. State capitals your Carolina. And. Last over Beirut or they marines. Yup. Wow. Are you are you are you a marine, Mark? Yes, I am. God bless you Semper fi. What, what are your friends names? I can't remember the names, I was working asked me, because I can't remember their names, but one was Rodriguez. She's one of my guys boot camp. Oh, I don't remember. Thirty five years. They were they were they were they in North Carolina before they deployed over there. Actually. That's how you bootcamp wa. Hang on. We're gonna were they okay. Hang on. We're gonna finish this on the other side of break. Don't ever forget Beirut, ladies and gentlemen, that was one of the worst.

"We always take some time allow folks to tell us a story about a hero in their family town, somebody that know, in remember the reason for Memorial Day. Okay. So that's Friday on the program in our one hour, we'll be Senator, Kevin Kramer. I spoke with the Senator last night about a very lengthy meeting with the US army Corp engineers top leadership yesterday. I think it's fair to say he was enormously frustrated awhile, my favorite exchange that he shared was that after some lengthy explanation. Why something wasn't happening as fast as it should. He said, I want you to come on the radio talk show that I do ever town all every week. And, and have you explained that to North Dakota? I'm not sure your last thirty seconds with them, but they're gonna they're going to call you out on all of that. But anyway, more about that with this inner Kramer on Friday. More of our conversation with oaks in my not today for the milestone of four million dollars in rural community grant funds handed out from farm credit services of North Dakota. Amanda, and of course, Agra Bank as well, more on the aga- conomy just have a lot going on today on the program right now. The one and only Tommy Fisher, the world's best builder of wall. Now, forget, the United States army corps of engineers, and others to recognize that be a lot better off for it. There is a Bill going on right now at an undersea. Closed location on private land is going pretty darn well. But could probably provided quite a guidepost for, you know, the, the customs and border patrol department homeland security Corp, engineers and how to do it. Right. How's it going down? There, Tommy, it's going Catholic God's I'm actually on an gate and walking up the side of the mountains where the worst, it'd be couldn't build. I'm telling me by the end of the day, you'll have the roadway in and be ready for families by Friday. Explain this came to be, you know, this, this project, how much wall, you're building where you're building it, how you're able to build it without bureaucracy and delays, and all the other things that are going on, just to give us the backstory, what I can say is that privately on by people raise money, get border secured. They went on did their due diligence. I don't wanna see where it is. Because there's going to be a big grand opening on Monday or Tuesday of next me. We've had several of the specter censor cheese from mortar patrol there and very, very impressed. There been coming out each day. They can't believe the mountain changing before there is. But I haven't seen anything yet Friday, Saturday, and Sunday when you watch that when people are celebrating Memorial Day weekend. We'll secure half a mile border for you. Pretty amazing. So what kind of pace I mean you're building, I one rough terrain you say you said earlier, the court said it couldn't be done like they haven't built wall on mountains because they didn't think it could be done. Correct. And they'll go up a little bit. And then they'll stop at the Toyota mountain, we're going three quarters of the way off giving him. Full access road lookout point his well as cameras, you know, the, the I did for the tunnel detection, and everything all turnkey and all this will be done in eight days. And so if you're looking at regular highway project run by a bureaucracy, or something, this project would have duration of eight months to a year on it. And the amazing thing here is the group that contacted me. It's so much more to make everything happen. We were able to get the steel mill give the all weathering steel within two and a half weeks. We were only notified the project twenty seven days ago and it'll be completing thirty days. And so just shows you that if there's a will, and you have partners and stuff, there's a way to get it done. And it's going to set the standard. There will be no more uses that we can't do this. We can't do that. So now it's up to the president who is the commander cheese on top of the army, and now falls on his left one hundred percent behind the president needs to fix bureaucracy. That's not working no more excuses times. And I think you'll see sky, you know, few days when they go national with it, and then we're planning on doing another two miles, right after on some property in California. There's a story out today in Bloomberg that US customs import protection is put up just one point seven miles of fencing with the one point five seven billion the congress appropriated last year along the Mexican border timely given what you're doing right there. But what is your reaction to the news? Stillie mostly jobs. They have out there stuck in the ground yet they still continue to give those contractors without price or scheduled more work, you know, one of jobs been stuff in the stand in Arizona or eight months and may decide to give another eleven miles based on the answering questions. So the bottom line is the court of the no. And if it cost me jobs, still be it. But in the end the truth is going to be out and the thing would be if they would've taken our proposal for the two hundred and eighteen miles, we'd already have probably forty five fifty miles us in another three or four months. You're looking at the downhill stretch, you know, just a big, big disconnect a lot of excuses and here's the bottom line. I think CV is gonna see what their own is taking. National security is a no nonsense in Denver. And that's what we're going to deliver and letter better. Project speak for itself. No longer. Can they hide that you don't have order while experience no longer than they hide their agents don't deserve a road no longer than they either date on deserve cameras? They don't do their technology. It's over. And we hoping that all your listeners as well as everyone from coast to coast, and see. And they can see that it's so much more than just offense a complete infrastructure projects. Exact words that was told to me by the section, she it looks like you're building a highway. And I said, yes, sir for you. Everyone. I talked to Senator Kramer after very lengthy meeting with general semi and other fish was yesterday. He the one positive thing that he took out of it, and I had heard it before myself from the reporting done and probing. The core was that, you know, Fisher industries is one of twelve pre-selected vendors to be able to the funding for the lion share of the will be able to bid on that. And basically, he his take that that's going to mean some, some work in the future is that good news from your perspective. I don't think so. It's it's nothing but a game they prequalified whatever they want and basically they have a question and answer thing, and they give the jobs to ever they want. I'll tell you what's going to change. The narrative dot is in UC. We built and we'll invite everybody there from the US senators to the congress to the president of the United States. He's not gonna put up with it. We do what they have going on with the corps of engineers has central park all over the ice skating rink, and here's a chance to so now there's no more excuses. I don't trust anything that they're gonna. Do the right thing. Look at they've had billions of dollars what they put up one point seven miles. And with all the extra mile, the defense department of them, there's nothing. There's nothing going in the ground. And my question is, can you fix us I after hearing a lot of bureaucracy. I, I mean can you fix the core? Can you fix the or can you just say, look, let's a lot some dollars in? Let's do it privately. Well, I think the easiest when he is HFS has the inspection, arm of see VP, and that's where we get the prototypes with the core just needs to be relieved duty. And the CD needs to contract with the contractors make the contractors put up a bond making put up the warranty, make them show that they can meet schedule. And if nobody else can and there's one or two of us him, it's worth not it's time for action. And I think what's happened is no matter. How many times you can say the president's demanded five hundred miles thinking to make? Two hundred. No. And they'll be some on the face there. That's why hopefully sooner rather than later. This gets fixed. Texture, ask the question that has Tommy, how the wall just for terrain hinge to maintain the same height as it goes up and down the hills. Yeah. I can really easy to share photos with us even show, your listeners on Facebook here next week. What happens is, is even though defense goes up every two feet, and it goes up at an angle, the ballers get long or in some parts of economy here in case four feet in parts toothy. So it's all you design the fence, you have to spend a little more money on this deal. But in the end, it's still a straight vertical line going up with them. You're going up slow point five percent each fallers going to be two feet higher than the next. But when you see them hang on our hangers. 'cause we had a lot of people. Tell us you yourself somewhere spit on the flat. But you can't mountains. They're gonna learn a lesson this week. Another question from a listener who do we need to call to get our government to contract with Fisher industries? I think you're congress. I think the White House, anyone who will listen within the other thing is, is pay attention to the news. The other part is if this private organization can raise a bunch of money, I committed to them, then I'll build a billion to two billion dollars worth of work, and if we can do that. We'll just find it through five and we'll show and, you know, all happen, you'll have this important every border agent. One just went right now and gave me the cross sign. Thank you for what we're doing. And because now they can see it because once they saw the road transforming front of their face. Their job is still difficult, and we'll have a lot of style you'll be able to share with your listeners, and what.

"You know, modest returns as far as viewership people enjoyed it. But I think that in some ways. Yeah. Like, you said that John is just probably probably podcast geek in this is I mean podcast have been around for a little bit. But the, but at the same time, I think they're really just now kind of getting more of a foothold in gaining popularity. So this is another interesting way to package material. And if we keep it a little lighter little bit less technical than in theory. It's something that you might want to listen to on your drive to work or as you're taking a jog. Or also, you know from experience a lot of a lot of people in this world are constantly traveling to conferences and workshops. So why not just down little on your phone and have something to listen to the airport is well, the groups that fund you in support you in. I think just the guests that you had to that you have quite an international footprint with what you're trying to do their do you guys specifically market to the international crowd. Just based on the. Networks that you're in. Or is it sort of organic you're sticking out there. Do you have a strategy on how you're trying to communicate this area of uptake? I mean, I think it's reflective of of Agua as a whole we are international network, and you very much market ourselves that way, but a good chunk of our membership is out of the US all my work is focused on the policy side is is very much focused internationally, and even with like a lot of our technical work that we do on kind of bottom up approaches out of Titian a lot of the workshops in everything that we're doing they're not in the US. And so we are very specifically focused more more internationally. And I think that's kind of just as a consequence of of Agua self being a very international network that being said, you know, I think there's we've done a few episodes that that have kind of stuff that is more kind of US focus that I think we could do a few more on as well. Because we do work with like US army Corp engineers, for example, you're very close partners of ours. You know, San Francisco public utility district work with them a lot. So we do have some more US based projects. But I think so far we have really tried to focus international just because I is such a global network. Yep. That the priority from the outset really was that we even though anger are based in the US. We're very much international scope in our membership is very very diverse setting..

"So my friend Mike of a my pillow on their forget the time he told me that he was going to meet the president for the first time, and it came on the show. He's talking about what we usually talk about is great products. And and he said, yeah, they called me up and said would you like to meet the present he'd like to meet you? So he goes there. And he tells me after that he spends an hour with with the then candidate Donald Trump for president and that our conversation ten minutes were about his ads and the pillow and fifty minutes was about faith. And he said we spent most of the dog in about God. I remember that thinking well number one. It says a lot about Donald Trump number two. It's just amazing the empire that Mike Lindell's built based on what you see on TV with him worrying that cross and his strong, faith and his recovery stories. Phenomenal leaves a drug addict. So all of that being said good reason to buy a great pillow. From a good guy and a good company and not only the pillows and the mattress toppers. But also, I love the Giza sheets Giza cotton, it's grown in the Mediterranean. It is unlike any kind you've ever known and so are the sheets right now. Thirty percent off promo code, Scott. Get your thirty percent off and free shipping. Mypillow dot com. Eight hundred five zero six nine zero two eight promo code Scott back with Tommy Fisher were in Arizona is the Bill that wall addition of what's on your mind all week long. We're building some wall now. Correct. That is correct. How is it going? You're not building. It. Others are building others are building it. It's going to my level. Very slowly so slow, for instance. Thank you, of course, shut down and part of Texas. Yeah. That's what we've understood in some of the articles and stuff whether it's right away or different things. You know, those jobs that were supposed to start here. Probably it will be stopped here until November. I didn't think a right away. So you gotta go just like you would for a pipeline up in North Dakota. Or oil to get a he's in right away and get property, right? And that's the other thing that I think we bring to the table that we could even add to our proposal is the right hand really has to know what the left hand's doing at all times if you're going to take on the big job. So we have technical people to that can handle right away aquisition and different things that we've done it. Our whole life time, you know, dealing with farmers and everything on just aggregate leases and different things for entry. So when you don't quite understand exactly how the construction is going to go and where you're going to go. You don't have a lot of options. So I think that's one of the things that the government really has to take a look at when they look at our proposal to go because that's the main thing you gotta have the area cleared. So there's a lot of law jets. But I've also seen in some of your videos, some, you know, I'm not a construction guy. But a shoddy work I mean that is going on in some of the some of these projects, I mean is that is that common will just just even with technology. Our technology is so much superior to what they're doing right now. We use gravity as a friend than sort of an enemy the second. You put bracing down in different things, you're relying on different forces that you shouldn't if you can hang and you can fix to something, that's solid. You don't put any passive pressure over the trench or anything, gravity becomes, you know, your friend. So that's just really one of our techniques and different things that we have and innovative abilities at Fisher because we have so many qualified and high end people we can come up with those. And you know, it's no different than what dad taught me years and years ago, I always respect gravity. So tell me a little bit about the uniqueness of what you're proposing. What the department of homeland security is gonna see tomorrow, you've patented this. And and what what design allows you the ability to go a mile day when everybody else is a quarter mile a day with our ability to hang and we don't use cranes. What happens is when they set one at a time, they're setting one eight foot panel at a time and putting it on bracing and wooden getting everything squared up. We hang seven at a time at eighteen foot high fence or. Five at a time at thirty foot high fence and basically move in. So we're we're moving in fifty six or forty feet at a time in the excavator holds everything. They're perfect. So if you have to go up down left right side the side, it's just a movement. So we're gonna show you that tomorrow, Oregon have Scott Hannan in an excavator and show you that. Right. Even if Scott can do it. We all can do. But I think it's a big thing. Because when you get big you gotta have quality people in. So like, the other caller said, look, even if we paid you five times the amount of money, can you guarantee, this many miles will you can if there's not enough qualified crane operators, but with our system any person that has gumption in will and wants to work and learn a trait can become a superstar in what we have to offer. Wow. So I didn't think of that. So the crane is is is mainly labor pain point more than anything. Correct. Because you're setting up in your hooking in different things we still hook for a brief second. You'll see. But once it's on the hanger the machine does everything else in the machine gets all the ballers perfect in position every time and how about the itself. Well, that's another big thing. We are a big steel company where right now the government for whatever reason is using carbon steel out in the middle of the elements. So if you did that with the DOT, you wouldn't last very long you gotta have longer design life than. Twenty to thirty years. We're protecting our border, and it's such a massive project. And so we using all weathering steel, which is a different ally of steel, it has some copper and it in different things there. I heard the president one day say something about we just paint. It correct. Must've got that from the chorus and paint on carbon steel won't do you any good any anyway with out primer, but he's on the right path. He understands there's different alloys that you can put in a steel that when the rust forms all weathering steel it protects the coating are makes the coating almost like paint. So for a little bit more money that we've tried to explain and we're going to explain that to the government very very much in detail at our steel manufacturing facility is let's go that next mile because why put something in today that sorry rusted out of their fixing fence that was putting ninety eight and even two thousand and five and we're only two thousand nineteen. You know what I worry about a little bit? As the swamp setting this president up for failure on this. Because I remember seeing recently a tweet from him saying, hey, US army Corp engineers, telling me there ahead of schedule. Well, they're only ahead of schedule because they set their own schedule. Right. That's correct. And the building a quarter mile a day. So they're telling him may Mr President. We're ahead of schedule. But really when you do the actual math to say how much are they building over how much time there's there's no way we're we're at a snail's pace to get this thing secure, right? It's the truth. And that's why something has to jump start and something has to give. And we're hoping that once the government sees it live. There's going to be a solution. So now, it comes back in the balls firmly in their court in the president's court at that point. And I think once the senators and congress the to that there's actually a solution that can get built and with roads and technology, and it's a full system. They just got to make that decision. What does your gut tell you about what's going to happen here? You think you're going to build this thing? Well, my hope is an American I that they build it. And you know, I'm protected you're protected. Our children, our grandchildren are protected, and we secure our border. And I think if they can see what we have to offer. And we do that. The president was right in one way the wall probably almost pays for itself. Because when we build the roads, and the infrastructure, I don't think they need as many agents as they think because the agents can cover more ground and. You know, if they are people know from seed assigning see that if you come here illegally, you're gonna hit the same type of border protection system that they can't be talked into saying, hey, there's an opening over here. I'll get on then people. Do it the right way. And if if enough people don't cross, and we need the workers to come in. Then it's supply and demand economics that the politicians have to fix immigration. So it all starts with the fence on the border system. Mazing we're looking forward to the next couple of days of following along tagging along and even being in the cab. Is it a cat cat three forty nine. And I think you're gonna.

New Jersey is one of the state's least affected by the partial shutdown of the federal government. That's according to a new study, which says the Garden State will be hard hit by delays in process. Messing federally financed mortgages, but less so in other categories, New Jersey ranked forty four th out of fifty states and the district of Columbia the study by the financial website, wallet hub, ranks state based on the number of federal jobs contracts, real estate activity, national parks, and percentage of families receiving food assistance. New York ranked thirty fifth on the list in part because New York is among the five states, receiving the least money in federal contracts. The district of Columbia, not surprisingly is most affected by the shutdown. Currently forty two degrees. Partly cloudy at six oh, six support for NPR comes from the Walton family foundation where opportunity takes root more information is available at Walton family foundation dot org. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Audie Cornish, and Mary Louise Kelley the government shutdown grinds on over funding for President Trump's border wall. But meanwhile, the Trump administration is moving ahead with plans to construct or upgrade border fencing, some one hundred sixty miles along the Arizona and California borders with Mexico, active duty military will take up the task here to tell us more is NPR's Pentagon. Reporter Tom Bowman and Tom what exactly is the task with? What is the Pentagon going to be doing? Well, I'm told this fencing said likely combat engineers for the fencing portion of this effort, but it goes beyond that homeland security's requesting medical units, of course, two children died along the border with in the custody of US officials at the centers they need additional help for the migrants coming through and also told aviation units would be part of this as well. They provide surveillance along the border to help customs and border protection, monitor any movements. And again, this is so. Support for that effort. Active-duty troops can't get involved in any arrest or detention of any migrants, it's against the law and to be clear. This is something new. This is on top of the existing troops already deployed to the border. Right. So this is new this is just coming out. Now this request was made from homeland security. How many more we talking? Well, we don't know at this point. I heard some one official said maybe thousands of troops and other said, well, the existing truce might be able to help. There are now twenty three hundred act of troops there on the border along with twenty one hundred guard forces they could provide some of this effort, but clearly they're going to send additional troops. They could change them out or some could be extended but acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan hinted about more support at a cabinet meeting at the White House yesterday. Let's listen restoration of the fences building out and additional mileage from the law. The army Corp. Engineers is dialed in on doing this cost-effectively quickly on the right amount of urgency as to where we built additional stand up walls quickly get after the threat. The threat is real. And he goes on to say that he'll provide assistance to homeland security secretary Kirsten Nielsen who's making the request to the Pentagon anytime line on how long these duty troops might be there. No idea. I was told it could be months to construct the fencing or shore up existing fencing, you know, we're talking one hundred and sixty miles or so now fencing right act of troops were supposed to end their deployment, by the way at the end of the month. So some could be extended maybe other units could take their place. But what we don't know. Right. Will the Pentagon is working on the specific? So we don't have a lot of detail at this point. Let me insertive skeptical question here, the president has said if he doesn't get money for a wall from congress. He might just order the military to build it is that what is going on here. The president doing something of an end run around the border standoff. That's quite possible. At this point, the talks with congress, the Democrats in particular appear to be going nowhere. The Pentagon the president wants five billion dollars for the wall. The Democrats saying that's far too much. In the standoff continues the government shutdown. But of course, a Pentagon has not shut down. And they're ready to take orders from the commander in chief. Thank you. You're welcome NPR's. Tom Bowman one person. And we'll be looking at the Trump administration's immigration policies is the new chairman of the House Judiciary committee, New York, Democrat Jerrold Nadler, welcome to the program. Thank you. Now. Your committee has oversight over many key areas. Right Justice department, voting rights and an immigration as we mentioned on that last issue. You told CBS that the zero tolerance policy that led to the separation of migrant families on the border was a deliberate creation of the White House that they're trying to make things as miserable as possible. In quote, if kids die there apparently willing to have that. Yes. To investigate the deaths of those two migrant children. Yes, we are. We're going to investigate the deaths of those two migrant children and the entire family separation policy. And there are a lot of questions. How could they for example, deport parents to foreign countries? He's making no provision to give the kids back I or even to figure out identification for the kids. So we have kids now months later that may never find your parents again. State-sanctioned kidnapping. Does it feel like investigative actions and oversight? That's really the only recourse. Democrats have right now. Does it feel like you have no real ability to change Trump administration policies? No doesn't feel that way. At all. And you can't talk about that the first day of democratic control, and the new congress, we have a we have leverage investigation, and, publicity, and and oversight is a major constitutional responsibility. And ability that we have the number to the power of the purse, you can't pass a budget without the house as well as the Senate, and we can put requirements in that budget. We can put limitations on the use of funds we can put requirements for the use of funds and so forth. So even if you cannot pass. Subject matter Bill through both houses of the president would veto it. They can't pass a budget without the house consent. So we have considerable leverage. You've also on another topic. You've sponsored a Bill that would protect the special counsel office. Robert Muller was investigating interference in the two thousand sixteen election introduce that Bill today, and you've also threatened to subpoena acting attorney general Mr. Whittaker what do you hope to learn from him? We are very concerned about a massive fraud. And the American people by the president by his campaign in order to obtain office through fraudulent means hush money payments to women Michael Cohen working with the Russians plus obstruction of Justice in the investigation of that we have to look into all of that. And the special counsel is looking into that or into some of it insofar as they may be crimes, but we have to look into all of that to protect the integrity of our elections and the integrity of our democratic system and to protect the American people from being defrauded by by the Trump campaign Ovalles future campaigns for that matter. So that is the prime thing that we have to do we have to put an end to Republican efforts over the last two years to interfere with an undermine the special counsel's investigation. If the Muller investigation uncovers evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors are you prepared to pursue impeachment? And even if it's politically unpopular it's too early. To talk about impeachment. But what is important at this point is to follow all the facts where they lead to make sure that those facts are public and to make sure that they're not interfered with by the Trump administration. So if a special counsel issues report, we have to make sure that that report is is it becomes public. If necessary we'll subpoena it necessarily will quote Muller to testify in front of the committee about it. We have to make sure that it's not varied by the Trump administration. Bye bye Whitaker or by bar. The President Trump has been implicated and campaign law violations. As part of Michael Collins plea, something like that an impeachable offense. It could be that. I don't wanna get into impeachment now. 'cause it when we're not prepared for that. At this point. The some of what he's been accused of could be impeachable. Offenses. But the real question now is to find out what happened to find out. What frauds were committed but frauds against American democracy. And to make sure the public knows that the public can judge, and we can judge in the judiciary committee instead of where we should go from there whether to be impeachment whether it should be protective legislation for the future. Whatever it may be. And you were earlier you were speaking about William bar, the White House nominee for attorney general. Yes. And and the acting attorney general Mr. Whittaker is it possible that you will overplay your hand.
