John McGuire: The Inconsistency of My Opponent

"I am looking at my tea leaves right, and I know where I stand, I'd love for you to be my state senator. I just think the world of you. You are going to be enter primary, but I mentioned Liz Cheney. I mentioned Adam kinzinger, some of these other folks up in D.C. who say, oh, we're really good for Republicans, but man, they're doing all the beating of the Democrats. Now, you've got sort of a similar situation on a local basis, right? Oh, yeah. Yeah. I think about the term wolf in sheep's clothing. And you've heard of rhinos, there's a guy that I'm running against, he's a supervisor in Louisa county, and there's a letter floating out there from a highly decorated Vietnam veteran who also served in this senator dick black and he's done some research and some other people have done some research and they found out that my opponent ran for Republican in the West Virginia House of delegates in 1982. And then he betrayed the Republican Party at a time when the Democrats were pushing the socialist pro abortion agenda. He left the Republican Party and joined that group and he ran at the Democrat in 82 with Walter Mondale and that crowd and then he ran the Democrat in 84 and then he moved to Virginia into this district where I'm running to be the state Senate and ran against one of the most conservative members of the House delegates Frank hargrove and Hanover county, who's a very beloved member of the House of delegates and against governor Allen who was on the ballot and he basically was on the ballot with Clinton. So he supported the Clinton and never seen the guy I mentioned the word Trump support Trump, anything else. He was supposed to be, but I'll tell you what, he's getting money. And so we've got to figure that out because people don't know this. There are

I understand for different wars, the tours of duty might be different lengths of time, right? Yeah. I also got a year about a year, okay. And I'm curious, Walter and I've asked this of other combat veterans as well. Were there ever times when you thought to yourself, holy cow, what did I get myself into? There's a lot of times afterward been under fire. I'll bet. I'll bet. Walter, what is something that most people don't understand about the Vietnam War? Because now it's been, you know, it's almost been 50 years since it has been 50 years since the wars ended. And what is it you think most people don't understand about the Vietnam War?

Lot of understand the work to partially have still crime trying to have you do and how long they're going to be going and they don't know where they're coming back or not.

Yeah, I did. I know. There were four daughters, I explained everything to them and I was trying to went through stuff like that. Walter, when you watch when your tours ended, or your tour ended, what was your experience like when you came back home? Loneliness? Did you get a lot of support or were you, I mean, did your family welcome you, your community going back there to Oklahoma, what was the reception like? Well, actually, I didn't receive anything like that when I came home. From a family really, when I got in town, I. Found out that. He was, he picked me up at the bus to ask the bus, I started walking down the street early in Shawnee Oklahoma. And he picked me up. He took me on home for all the folks there. And that was it, just no parades, no celebrations, no ticker tape, just a friend, picking you up, driving you home. Yeah. Well, Walter, thank you again for your service.

"He came back, this was something that he never had an issue with, but while he was over there, that was his way of coping that was how they stayed away all day and all night. He said, you sleep with one eye open. And growing up, the drug and alcohol abuse was how he coped with his PTSD. He's been sober for 23 years. And he has sought health through the VA and the Indian clinics. And he had become a drug and alcohol abuse counselor. He is diabetes. He has agent orange, which has made his diabetes worse. He's had lung cancer and multiple surgeries. So he is now technically disabled. And I have carried on this mission for my dad and those who suffered with PTSD. A lot of people don't realize that's how they're coping with it. Wow, yeah. Well, congratulations on his 23 years of sobriety. Does your dad talk about the war often? He talks about the war, his buddies, he doesn't talk about what they do over there. He was a gunner. That's not something that they're proud of exactly what they had to do, but they were doing it for us back here, stateside. He didn't talk about the war until he became sober. He didn't talk much about the war itself. He would talk about the partying and the things that they did. The things that doesn't bring him down doesn't dragging down, but talking about the things that were depressing and sad. And you know, they were away from their moms, their dads, their brothers and sisters, they didn't get to eat mom's home cooked food. There were no cell phones to call back home, mail would take months to get to them. So if it was new news, by the time it got to them, it wasn't news anymore. He talks about it more now. He's more comfortable talking about it with his brothers, which is why we host the events we do is to get them back together and have that sense of brotherhood for them. And he's been a shoulder for other veterans. So you mentioned agent orange lung cancer, PTSD. Over the years, do you feel that your father has gotten adequate services and treatment for these issues for which he suffers from serving in the Vietnam War? No. For the longest time, the VA was so backlogged. And when dad was diagnosed with cancer, we decided to they diagnosed him. But that was in April and it was fast growing cancer in his lungs. By time we were able to get VA approval. It was we already had him signed up and scheduled for surgery the morning of his surgery when he was ready to be rolled back is when the VA came through with his approval. But we went ahead and thought treatment ourselves. The diabetes, they just keep pushing insulin his way, pushing insulin is way and he ended up bottoming out. There was not proper education. There is now proper education. The thing is, there's a lot of your elders are not on social media. They don't know when things are going on. You don't see a lot of mailers and flyers like you used to because everything is on the Internet. And a lot of our elders don't, they don't know the first thing about the Internet. I remember when I taught my dad, how to use Google. He said, what is this Google thing y'all are talking about? Now that he knows how to Google, he googles everything. I made him get a cell phone so that I could keep in touch with him for when he started keeping my daughter. And that's something that he thoroughly enjoyed as being a grandpa. It's given him a new purpose in life. He's pretty much raised her since she was 11 months old when I returned to work. And he said, buddy, they go to bass pro harbor Frey. They go to the bank just to get a sucker. It gives him a purpose to get out and about without her. He was just sitting at home and a dungeon. And didn't want to socialize, didn't want to people. And the only time you're making perk up real quick, if you say something about a veteran event or a powwow or something like that, he'll get up and go. Because he's going to be around his brothers and sisters that he was with. He knew, and then in fact, this event here, he just ran into somebody that was in the military with Ken folk if he was that he hasn't seen in over 50 years. Wow, wow. Tanisha, when you listen to your dad and he tells you stories from his time overseas in the military. How does it inform your view of the Vietnam War? What does it make you think? I feel like a lot of lives were lost unnecessarily. Of our own men and women. Why did we lose so many lives in the war the way that we did? I'm sure that all the lives were lost. They gave them willingly. But at the same time, was it necessary to lose so many? To get I'm sorry, go ahead. No, it's sad, and it's depressing to hear the stories, really. Because, you know, that's what he has to live with every day of his life. Us who her stateside, we only just have a vision in our mind. But they proudly served, but they're also struggling with the war at home for the rest of their lives, which is the post traumatic stress. Do you get the feeling that your father's experience is similar to other? Native Vietnam era veterans? Absolutely, when you get them together, they all talk about the same thing. Absolutely. Do you know how many native veterans natives from Oklahoma served during the Vietnam era? Do you have that number by chance? I'm just curious. Dad does. He's told me before. He Native Americans from Oklahoma served in Vietnam. 310,000. 226. There's 226 on the wall, but he said there were over 200,000, but not just in Oklahoma. But over 200,000 veterans serving during the Vietnam War, the Vietnam era, okay. Wow, well thank you again, tanisha for all that great information. And give your dad a big hug for us all because it really appreciate his service and the sacrifices that he made on behalf of all native people in Americans. So really do appreciate that. Michael, are you still there? Yeah. Okay. Mike, I'm curious. Native people have such high rates of enlisting in the military, both in previous wars and even in contemporary times. Why is that? Why do so many native people? Why are they compelled to join the military? Because we're honorable warriors and we're when we celebrate we honor our nation that have evolved a different nations of 579 federal recognized tribes. In the United States that we represent, when we go to join up, we're honoring our own sovereignty nation. And the United States, so that's like a great honor that you can bestow on a Native American Indian. And so to go over there and serve your country and to come back, not looking for glory or anything, but just I serve. And I signed my name on the data line. My father signed in World War II and September of 1941 and ended up being on the bataan death March, which next week, Kim writes the 80th year of the tan and Craig's door in the Philippines, where they were left behind. My father endured all that harsh treatment, hail ships, prison camps, slave labor, but he never gave up because he was a Native American warrior. And that his spirit, that spirit is what drives us. I mean, when one of our elders that goes on before us and has served, we want to follow in their footsteps. We want to be part of that group. That's what drives us as being native. Now, you mentioned your father was a survivor of the baton death march and obviously was a big inspiration to you to serve in the military as well. What do you remember about what he used to say about his time serving there during World War II that he tell a lot of stories? What do you remember most? I remember him when we lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma is that he would basically just go to our backyard and when he came back because of the treatment that he received from the Japanese, the doctor said that he had no nerves whatsoever. So he was like, we were like on pins and needles growing up around him. And so when he felt like he felt that desperation, he would run to the backyard and set underneath the tree where he regrouped his thoughts and everything. So basically, we just wanted to make sure that he was okay and everything. And so when my time came, I thought it was my duty to go in and join the military. I was in misfortunate as the other Vietnam vet went overseas. I did have orders to go to Vietnam, but by the time I came home from my 30 day leave and got back to fort Bragg, they had changed my orders to the journal staff. So I didn't know if because of what my father went through that they thought that our family had endured enough and my father being a POW that they changed my orders. My son, Michael Keith coon, he decided when he's singing his grandfather's combat infantry badge on his chest, he decided that he wanted to be part of that group. So he told his grandfather that one day when he joined the military, he would have that distinction on his chest and sure enough he had two at one for Iraq, Afghanistan. And so these are third generation and he was in ten years. He was a squad leader. Firefight team, my father was a 30 caliber machine gunner and my son of the 50 caliber machine gunner and also he was at camp Irwin, where he learned how to do tanks. So with my part, in my during my time, mine went being with airborne units, learning to jump out of 5 different aircraft. So we all had had a certain purpose that we did in life, but we enjoyed our military as far as honoring our nation, our country, and that's basically what our Native Americans thrive for when we, when we sign on that dotted line. We don't look anything in return. It's just that we just want people to know that we serve proudly. And Michael, you shared some of your duties there as a Vietnam War era veteran. How long did you serve exactly? I served three years at fort Bragg. Fort Bragg, North Carolina, right? Yes. Okay. I've jumped out of three one 19, C one 30, C one 41, hughie's chinooks. 5 different aircraft. Okay. Well, again, Michael, thank you for your service. Folks, we are talking about Vietnam era veterans, Vietnam War veterans as well. Over 9 million military personnel served on active duty during the official Vietnam era that lasted from August 5th, 1964 to May 7th, 19 75. More than 2 million 700,000 Americans served in uniform in Vietnam and we just heard from one of our guests, the father of one of our guests today that over 200,000 of those in uniform were Native Americans. And 240 men were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War as well. Well, if you have a question or a comment, listeners please give us a holler if you just want to pay some respect and say some words of thanks to any of the veterans that we have on the show today or a veteran that you might know or have in your family please reach out, give us a holler. One 809 9 6 two 8 four 8 that is the number to call. My name's Sean.

"Veterans. It's national Vietnam Veterans Day. March 29th, 1973, marked the date when the last U.S. combat troops left Vietnam. If you are a Vietnam veteran or no one and would like to join our conversation, call in one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. That's one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. Before we went to break, we were talking with blass presidio, a Vietnam War veteran and he was sharing information about fellow Native Americans that he served with in combat. Blas, could you tell us a little bit more about those natives that you served with? Okay, I think blass has left us Michael, thank you again for bringing blossom into the show. I hit a lot of great information. Michael, you're also there at that event going on in lot Oklahoma today. Can you tell us more about mission 22 that you serve with? Yes, mission 22 is a 5 O one three C profit organization for veteran suicide awareness. So that our publics know that our soldiers out there are dealing with this PTSD and we're a national organization that we reach that up throughout different 50 states to combat this pandemic that we're going to build on some of the. Okay, so tell us more. I mean, do a lot of these veterans have trouble accessing services and treatment for PTSD and some of these other health issues that they have can be attributed to their time spent in the military. VA has such a bad backlog right now that some of the veterans are taking their own lives because they can't wait they need help now and right now they're just thanks again and the bullet. So it's a pandemic that's just getting real serious and the public needs to be aware of what the Vietnam economy might have been to the future but these young veterans are going 5 6 7 deployments and it's taken a toll on our youth and so we need to cut back on some of our deployments as soon as you can make sure that they get the help that they need. And so that's why this is between two and a step that has been my son in 2015 and September to BTS after he had served in Iraq and Afghanistan because they needed another 1 million plus half of his graduating prioritization school in port meeting to Iraq and Afghanistan. So it takes a time when soldiers cut that they have to continue to fight and carry on for their comrades and for their bodies. And so that was my mission when I became the steward of the memorial that they wanted to find a permanent place for these memorials. My son is one of the memorials of the 20 silhouettes. My way a thousand pounds a piece, but they're all branches of service. I mean, the PTSD does not go after one service member. I mean, it can be a combat non combat. Women lawyers.

Okay, so tell us more. I mean, do a lot of these veterans have trouble accessing services and treatment for PTSD and some of these other health issues that they have can be attributed to their time spent in the military. VA has such a bad backlog right now that some of the veterans are taking their own lives because they can't wait they need help now and right now they're just thanks again and the bullet. So it's a pandemic that's just getting real serious and the public needs to be aware of what the Vietnam economy might have been to the future but these young veterans are going 5 6 7 deployments and it's taken a toll on our youth and so we need to cut back on some of our deployments as soon as you can make sure that they get the help that they need..

At the same time, they face disparities of difficulties and accessing some benefits. All Vietnam era veterans are elders now and many have healthcare requirements. Today we'll check in with native Vietnam era veterans and hear their stories. We'll find out their unique perspectives and needs compared to veterans who came before and after their time in history. And as always, you're more than welcome to join us. Get in on today's discussion by calling one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. That's one 809 9 native. Joining us from Lawton, Oklahoma is Michael coon.

And joining us from seminal Oklahoma is Walter larney. He's a Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps. He's absentee Shawnee and seminal. Walter, great to have you on the show. Thank you. Absolutely. Michael, let's start off with you. You're actually at an event today. Can you tell us about it? Yes. So I have a gentleman named Boston studio and I let him talk to you because we came out here supporting his actions for our Vietnam vet and we got to resignation one time home. From last explain to what it means to our vets. Okay, Ross, welcome to the show. Okay, yes, it's a blast. My name is blas presidio. I'm a member of the Kyle wood tribe. And we'll take about maybe about 30 minutes of your time. I was over there and I'm a member of the global black legged warrior society and most of them, an officer and also a member of a group that was created about three years ago, 2019, Kyle was command keys and apaches, veterans organization, and I'm also an officer in that. And what we're doing is we're hosting a commemoration ceremony and today and regards to the national Vietnam War Veterans Day. And I briefly, from what I understand, I don't know all about it, but there was a special commemoration program that was started within the department of DoD Department of Defense and to get a veterans organization or organizations at throughout the United States to host one of these events to commemorate an honor our Vietnam veterans, not just a Vietnam veterans, but the families of those that were killed in action over there and also the families that of the ones that have passed on since that time since our service in Vietnam. And so we recognize wives and spouses and they're also their children. So we're going to have an hour and a half commemoration. And after that, we're going to have a short in our own Indian way. We're going to have a little powwow. Okay. This sounds like a wonderful event that you have planned today. And you're very active in veteran affairs. What is it that inspires you to continue to serve your military comrades? Well, I've got my family. I've got my brothers and sisters were our veterans. I've got two brothers and older brother and younger brothers that were also Marine Corps veterans, Vietnam. And then I have an older sister that's a retired army National Guard. That's a veteran of the Persian Gulf War. And so that and then have found in my later years, my great grandfather was a prisoner of war and St. Augustine, Florida after the conclusion of our the Red River war of 1874 here in the southern plains, and he was incarcerated at a POW along with the Carlos comanches. Shine a rapa hose at the fort Marion. St. Augustine, Florida. So then he was also a great grandfather. He was a Mexican captive of the cows and he was also a member of one of our warrior organizations called the Kyle and black ligands and so that's one of the reasons. And then plus my service in Vietnam with the unit that had experienced, I guess you could say, well, I had to research it and I was in my unit lost rough about 79, 79% of wounded in action and roughly 10% KIA. So we suffered a lot of casualties in the short amount of time on battalion within Vietnam and from 7 months to 1968. And we suffered a hundred and roughly all together rivers, a 142 men that were killed in action in my unit. And over between 5 and 600 that had to be medevac because of wounds. So that's just, that's why I want to serve my veterans fellow veterans. Sure. Sure, yeah. And it sounds like you come from a long history of military service and those statistics you just shared about the number of other military personnel that you served with that were killed in action or wounded. It's just staggering. Whilst can you explain to our listeners, what is the difference between a Vietnam War veteran such as yourself and a Vietnam.

J.D. Vance Describes What It Will Take to Turn the GOP Into a Fighting Party

"Com. Jady, you used a phrase in our last segment. Well, you know, if I may paraphrase whether the GOP has the requisite intestinal or testicular fortitude to do what has to be done in the face of the what are we seeing what we are witnessing with Nancy's efforts and the squad, which is the criminalization of conservatism, we're going to spend the whole next hour with president Trump's former Lloyd Jenna Ellis analyzing how the GOP failed us before the election and after the election, you're clearly running as an America first candidate you've been increasingly outspoken on social media. What is it going to take? Do you as one potential senator have a plan for how we finally turn the GOP into a fighting party? Yes. I mean, look, it's going to take a few others as well, but I do think one senator can make a huge difference here. I think that what we have to remember just before we get to the nitty Gritty here, is we actually represent real people. There are people sitting in a January excuse me in a D.C. jail. The capital the greatest country in the world, nonviolent protesters who have been treated by human scum by their own government in their own country. Some of them, by the way, fought for this country, were spat on because there were Vietnam veterans and now are being mistreated in D.C. prisons. We have to actually feel in our hearts that these are our people and that they deserve to have actual representation, not just words, not just complaining, not just political grandstanding, but actual defense when it comes to their basic constitutional liberty. And that's what has me so far. I mean, you're my friend and I like you and I'm very mad about what the fact that they're doing to you. But when I think about those guys in the D.C. prison who just showed up to exercise their constitutional rights, it gives me absolutely

"There was Tom barringer particular as well. Yeah, for the audience for the audience here. There's Tom Barry and you're Sam Elliott. Gary Busey, Brad Johnson was a big back then. Captain Dale die of Saving Private Ryan fame. George Hamilton back then the 90s arle army. And of course, and then there was a law and orders Chris nath, who was big. Frankie Quinn, Francesco Quinn, the eldest son of Anthony Quinn. Okay, yep, yep. And Frank and I became good friends. And I was living in northern LA county and a little town called active ACT and at the time. And I had my own like 6 or 7 horses. On my 6 acre little ranch, so you were pretty active working to build a Ford living like that. Yeah. So you had a speaking role in rough riders. How did the role of Indian bob come to you? How did it happen? Well, that was a news to me to its time. John milius, who had visited, and he wrote a couple of hero Geronimo, which I was also in a Robert Duval and Gene Hackman and that was a big Matt Damon. Yeah. And welcome by I was walking by John Lewis's office at Warner Brothers one time. And I said, well, he wrote Geronimo. I'm going to say hi. And I'm at Leonard Brady. He's a assistant. And they were really glad to see me, because I was a Lakota. And John is a big supporter of Indian issues. And so and so in John, not here, and I'm back in a couple hours. You hang around. So I did. I'm around. I often have, and John came in and John and I visited for four or 5 hours in his office. Wow. And then by a year later, I get a phone call from this casting agent and she said, mister primo, can you come down to my office and sign a contract? What do you mean sign a contract? No, well, we have a role for you in the movie rough riders, and we like to do a Santa contract. I was in my car in three minutes. Driving the LA. And I signed my contract and I was treated like a king, because John milius wrote the role of Indian bob specifically for me. And John milius is like a premier screenwriter in LA, even today. Yeah. He wrote God. His resume endless. That's awesome. So he wrote that specifically for you. We'll move on to Texas all over Texas. And all of a sudden I got a limousine pulling up in my front yard to pick me up to me the airport. First time that's ever happened. I'm sure. Oh God, I should say so. I said, what? I felt really privileged and my son was born in November 16th and I had 96. What could I give John who ran this rule for me in this movie? And I need my son telling millions primo. My son's middle name is after John milius melis. That's a pretty that's a pretty big honor. When I told him, I showed John we're certificate tears literally came to his eyes and I felt really proud I did the right thing, I think. Because what did you do with everything? You know, materially. Yeah. And so but when I just gave you on a hug and John I can't thank you enough. That was it. That's great. That's great. So you are the only native on that movie. You had no, there was one more. David midthunder? Yeah. There was two more bit thunder and another, I can't be, but I mean, you were one of very few what I was getting as you're one of very few Native Americans in Hollywood at the time. Was there a camaraderie camaraderie with either other veterans or other Native Americans in LA at this time? Not really. Camaraderie was. Jealousy. Competitiveness. There's more competitiveness. Competitiveness, but there was also a bit of jealousy and also. That's unfortunate. Today, if you go back to I think episode one 40 in the archives and look through Jennifer Marshall, she's a navy veteran that's out there in LA today. And they have a group now called veterans and media and entertainment. And I think they meet at least once a month. As a support group to veterans in the film industry, trying to make it trying to make it out there. But I just wanted to share that with you that nowadays. There are veterans, you know, that are supporting each other out there in LA. Obviously, I mean, from what your testimony is to unlike to what it was back then. Yeah, it was completely different ball game back when I was living in LA. She does still say that it is pretty isolated and isolating place LA, but she does say that there are veterans that are helping each other out there. So after rough riders, you had a developed some friendships out there, obviously with John milius and Gary Busey. And you ended up on a couple of reality shows. Towards the end of your career, celebrity wife swap, and I'm with UC Davis. Late 20 12s. How did that relationship develop? How did you, how did all that come to be? Gary had his own TV show called life with beauty. Yeah, yeah. And I was on one of the segments. And we spent we spent like a week in Sedona, Arizona. Filming that. And it was, in fact, I had to stop to Gary a couple of days ago. We talked fairly often, him and I. I look at your career, Robert, even before you film career. And it's almost like you were a Lakota renaissance man. You know, including your films, you were also had your own radio show. And you were a basketball coach, correct? Yes. Got you. What were the name of the radio shows? Two of them. I would say at the time, it was the first veteran show in the nation called sitrep situation report. Sure. And that was in 2009 to 2012, I think. Okay. So you had to sit rep in what was the other one? The warrior. American English show and American national American Indian issues. And both shows, I interviewed generals, congressmen, leaders in the Indian country. Travel chair people. Travel leaders, and that show went nation nationwide. You also, including your radio shows you were a spokesperson for a lot of veteran issues and Native American issues. You did some speaking to other tribes. I saw a YouTube video with you with the Seminole like a Seminole Veterans Day. You talk about and you've talked to me about the four Lakota virtues. Why are they important to you? What are they? Oh, yes. I'm calling the four cardinal virtues. Of the Lakota warrior. And we are taught these virtues from very young kind of from a very young age as soon as the youth could start to understand..

"Treat us properly. From that time period, so I'll be the first to admit the Vietnam veterans had a very, very short end of the stick when it comes when it came to how you were treated in service. You know, for when you guys came home to everything afterwards. And I do know that the VA does is doing a lot better now than it was back then. I think that's fair. I think that's fair to say. Now, I did read somewhere that unlike most Vietnam veterans, what was it like coming back to the reservation to the tribe? Was it? Was it a different experience as a Native American veteran? Yeah, because for what we've done, what we've done for this country. And when I look at it like this was our country first sure. That's what we call it Indian country. Reservations is an Indian country. And I was defending Indian country first. Then defending America. Through America, you were defending your own land. Yes. But when I did come back, you know, I was on deplorable circumstances. I load brother's death. He was 14. And then when I got off the plane and Oakland, I knelt down on the ground, kiss this country. I kissed the tarmac. Because I was glad to be home. Under dire circumstances, of course, but still, I was glad to be home. And this when people walking all over the place, not like today. And I felt something on my back of my neck. And here was saliva and I looked up some even looking back at me. And spit on me. And so that, you know, because we didn't really know. I didn't really know what's going on in this country. We read the start of the stretch a lot in Vietnam. Yeah. And towards a lot of stories about what happened at different universities. It's amazing and that you have come into the reservation and the OAF and OEF veterans have now is a completely one 80 experience due to what I think what happened through the Vietnam veterans, you know? I can't stand that that was a cross that you guys had to bear. So I have nothing but respect for those that had to come home to those circumstances. Well, thank you. It's appreciated by me and not on behalf of every Vietnam veteran that I represent. Absolutely. So you transitioned out. Now, how did you start your transition? Did you start with the GI Bill or did you go straight into film? No. Because my injuries, you know, I lost, I lost like 80 pounds of that in that accident. Oh my gosh. And it was, you know, I'm always but true, a 110 pound weekly. Yeah, but you say a 110 pounds a week when I looked at your photo from Vietnam. You look like you could handle your business. I'm just saying. So you lost 80 pounds of that, though. After your accident. Yeah. You know, I've worried about one 90 in Vietnam. So how did you begin your fight back to, I mean, you are now a double PhD. You are in 14 films. How did you begin your fight back? Well, my fight back was going back to my grandmother's ranch, my grandfather died in 63. And my grandma and I was raised in high school on the ranch. And so I went back out there and I rehabbed myself how like in what ways? Well, my grandma we had horses on the ranch red cattle. And the horses were my love. And I would I couldn't ride a horse right away because I was so weak, but I go out and do that that I love them. And we had like 80 horses on the ranch. And I just grabbed a couple in the pen and who broke and I would walk up to them and look at them and they look back at me and I just walk up to and start petting them. And then once they knew that I cared, when I turned around to walk with it, follow me. And it was unbroken that I never experienced this type of behavior from a human. It was a good feeling on my behalf and a good feeling for the horse. Yeah. So rapport and trust and all that. Yeah, exactly. Trust is the factor and because with the Vietnam combat veteran, trust is a major factor. So these horses helped rehab, you helped rehab through these horses. Yeah, I was there for I thought the ranch for my mother worked in town. You know, the family took good care of me. And because they knew what I went through in my head and I had it every day. And when I go to town by a few bottles of whisky and that self medicate myself for the headaches and my grandma said to me, bob, you look different every morning. Why is that? Because I was in a different state every night. Because I'd be outside in the barn. Drinking my whisky from a headaches and even in the morning I go out there, I would need breakfast. I just go out in the bar and that's where I kept the whiskies. Grandma wouldn't find it. Oh, wow. So how did you pull out of that and you start your how did you start your transition again, I saw that you started school through was a rodeo scholarship or through the GI Bill or both? Ships were getting into the college. Yeah, I didn't know that there were rodeos scholarships. I didn't know that was a thing. Well, that's a big thing. My cousin, Joe chase, who's a three time national champion back in the back in the 50s. I had no idea. I had no idea that that was a college sport. Yeah. And it's called the NIRA national interleaved rodeo association. Oh, wow. And I would say there's about, I would say at least 400 universities probably members of it in IRA. So you got to a point where you were able to ride the horse again. You were able to start doing rodeos and you got these scholarships to go to school. Yeah, let's see about the late 70s when I started. And because I still couldn't work that trouble with my body physically. And so I go to school for the money. You know, I'd get a bike. I don't know maybe $300 a month from the VA for the GI Bill. Yeah, I guess I guess riding a.

Interview With Barbara Kopple

"I, know I'm not alone this. I'm on record as naming Harlan, county USA, one of the best documentaries ever. Made I taught it and American dream once in a class on cinema verite. So Barbara Cop bullets genuinely thrilled to have you on film spotting. Thanks for coming on That's nice to hear. Thank you very much. Of course I was four when the events of desert one played out. So I guess I'll use that as my excuse but I, have to confess I really had no idea. Story was going to unfold when I started watching and the story I did get surprised me. So was that partly what drew you to this story that it's a mission that a lot of Americans may not be aware of or have forgotten about chosen to forget about Exactly, the history channel is GonNa do hundred feature found based on history that people really wouldn't know that much about And so does it one was one of them they ended up on these doing for five and so. We're rocky that we got to do this. and. I just love death because I just felt that desert one really is a story that needed to be if you know for me. Story of heroism, a reminder of the horrors of war and it also. It's so rennaissance today because it looks the roots of the conflict between the US and the Iranian government. And plus I just really wanted to do. Because the guys are so incredible, their their diet who'd never really got do and they went because they wanted to rescue fifty two hostages who had been you know taken by the Iranian students. So not knowing the story, I'll also confess I, assumed it was going to be a story of American triumph and in some ways it is you mentioned it is a tale of heroism. It's definitely a tale of great courage but it is a failed mission and the failed missions aren't the ones history typically remembers or wants to revisit. It sounds like that was also an angle that appealed to you. Yeah. from people have this motto had the guts to try. And From this. Ham. A lot of really incredible things like it's organization called the Special Operations, Warrior Foundation and also was really the first time that special forces wherever put together you know marine and navy and everybody in now special forces are together you know on different missions that they go and so it was the start of that. Thinking about desert one in relation to some of the other documentaries you've made the to mention. For example, you give a voice there to people who are often voiceless overlooked. I'm thinking of course of the of the miners and the meatpackers, and it's not the soldiers whose missions are unsuccessful as we touched on whose stories are typically told, but that's what you've done and so I'm curious if that was a conscious choice on your part or are you just naturally drawn to telling those kinds of stories and giving voice to those people? Yeah. That's what I love doing more than anything is. Really getting to know people that you narrowly.

Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema

"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

Everyone is still wrong about the Covington kids

"Classes over at Covington high school because of death threats because of bomb threats. No, I am not kidding. They've now had to cancel school today, and they had to cancel their basketball game which was scheduled for the next couple of days because of all the violent threats that are being made over a completely falsified video that the media pushed forward so the media over the weekend push for this videos. You'll recall from yesterday show, they push forward a video suggesting that Covington high school students surrounded an elderly native American Vietnam. Veteran and then began berating him yelling at him obstructing him. And all the rest turns out that was all ally. It was not true. The further video shows what happened is that. There were a bunch of black Hebrew Israelites cult members who were yelling, racial, sexual orientation slurs at the students, the students did not respond except by chanting their school chance at which point Nathan Phillips, this elderly native, American gentlemen, he decided to saunter into the middle of the high school students with some of his buddies pounding a drum and getting in the faces of some of the students the students did not react to that. And for this. The students were castigated they're now receiving death threats. There is eating bomb threats. They have been doc st-. I mean, I've spoken to a bunch of the students at this point. These are from my impression. Good solid kids. I see no evidence that they are racist. I see no evidence that they did anything egregious or wrong. And you're seeing commentary from folks on the left suggesting that one kid in particular, Nick Sandman, who's the one who you see in the video standing face to face with the native American guy that he was doing something wrong by smiling. So now a white guy smiling is race. Cest? That's how far we have come. So Martin Luther King day yesterday. People were talking about how a white kid smiling was racist. Because he happened to be wearing a maga- hat. You think maybe we've gone too far in this country in terms of polarizing people by way of race. It's pretty astonishing. We'll President Trump did the right thing yesterday. He tweeted out about Covington Catholic, he was he was watching Tucker Carlson show. Tucker did a great job of covering this issue last night on Fox News. And Trump tweeted out looking like, Nick Sanmen and Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgments proving out to be false smeared by media, not good but making big comeback new footage shows that media was wrong about teens encounter with native American at Tucker Carlson. That's great. I mean, I had recommended to the White House that President Trump actually tweet at Nic Sandman. Nice hat Nick wanna come to the White House. You remember Barack Obama did that with
