"Pubic nerve surgery was practiced and even frontal lobotomies lung pies. I don't even know what to say. I maybe myself am in denial about the severity. There really is one horrific treatment that i had. I just don't even know. I can't even get my head around And i believe this is a treatment by a vietnamese psychiatrist. But i'd have to look it up for more detail but what they did was. They practice transplanting. The testes of heterosexual men to homosexual men in an effort to stop homosexual behavior. Doubt it worked. I don't know how this would even work i. Yeah i'm speechless. We that that is that is in the category of heavy experimentation. And wow wow. What is actually practiced today in terms of fixing the homosexual because largely after the nineteen seventies. Most of these practices ended. What is practiced. Today is conversion therapy and this is a form of brainwashing. That is kind of informed. I'm saying that. In air quotes by religious beliefs oftentimes fundamental christian beliefs in particular where they use certain psychological approaches shaming is one of them shaping. Which is behavioral psychology approach. Which is where you kind of. Show people a stimulus. And if they show any interest in you encourage that stimulus and that reaction and the person so in many cases shaping would be you know a homosexual young men socializing with women any emotional attachments they would start to form that would be encouraged by reintroducing the stimuli. This is called shaping behavior and shaping it happened at a very micro level in a very broad level but a very specific tactic. That's used typically young men are sent away or or boys are sent away to these conversion therapy kind of treatment centers or camps is what i like to call them and i mean camps in the nazi germany. Kemp way where you know. Basically ideas is. They're trying to align the homeless of the person away from the homosexual behavior to the heterosexual behavior..

They've always said little kids can look deep down in the soul and can tell if your friend or foe and for some reason I must be friend. I guess I'm honored, I guess I'm amused and so are they.

Joe Biden's America: Lower Your Expectations and Wait in a Breadline

"Washington Post has just published an article don't rant about short staff stores and supply chain woes. You should delight in the suffering. Get used to bread lines obviously. American consumers might have been spoiled, but generations of them have dealt with shortages of some kind. Now it's our turn. To wait in line. Tweets came up all across the weekend of young Democrat socialists who were saying, you don't understand, the type of community and camaraderie that was born out of bread lines. It was a beautiful thing. One of the great things that came out of the Soviet Union were bread lines. Zero sarcasm when they say this, by the way, zero. Tucker Carlson says that the American way of life is quickly declining. An intentionally so. But the rich the powerful well connected, they will be well fed. Joe Biden will not miss a meal. Mark milley will definitely not miss a meal. The people in charge, they'll be well fed. But for those of you that are going to try to feed your family, this Christmas season expect 20 to 50 to 70% price shock. Supply shocks. You see abundance covers a multitude of sins. There's only two explanations for what they're doing here. Either they want to break the back of the American economy to try to fit in the great reset as quickly as possible or number two, they're trying to break the back of the American economy to try to create some sort of a revolution. I'm not sure that's the one though. Because I don't people are getting so uneasy, people are getting so anxious about this, I don't think that the ruling class will be able to manage to successfully manage what's coming

The Greatest Battle You Will Experience in Life Is You vs. You

"Want we as conservatives then I kind of just say this in general that we want to design a society that gives preference on your choices and your actions and your behavior, not on your complaints or your grievances or the mobilization thereof. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm perfectly kind of on board with breaking up certain companies and using political power to try and make that easier. But generally, I think that it's very important for people to try and prioritize that the greatest battle you'll experience in life is not Charlie Kirk versus climate change. Or Charlie Kirk versus the oil companies. Now, Charlie Kirk versus Charlie Kirk. That it is the struggle within that we must tell young people that we must understand that it's self control that the improvement of your own character is the thing that you must prioritize above anything else. And it's a disservice to tell young people, you know what the greatest struggle in life is you against racism. The greatest struggle in life is you against, no, the greatest struggle in life is you gonna be able to control your own impulses to work up early to go to work to say that I want to become a better and more developed human being and put very simply.

Conservative Influencer Amala Ekpunobi's Message to Young BLM Activists

"I have to ask you this given your parentage. We talked to us. Well, tell us, what is your message? To young Americans who go on Black Lives Matter marches and who believe that this is an organization that's going to bring justice to America. What is your explanation to them of what BLM really is? Oh, I have a lot to say on this matter. If you know me or if you've heard me, you know that I have a BLM fist tattooed on my arm because I was that much in support of Black Lives Matter. Yeah, don't let your 16 year olds get tattooed. I was attending BLM protests whenever they were happening in my home state of Florida. And what I will say is just take a deep dive into Black Lives Matter and tell me one thing that they've done to actually help the black community with the millions and millions of dollars that they have amassed. I can tell you about the real estate properties that their leaders have bought. I can tell you about the different families of police shooting victims who have not seen a dime of the money that BLM has garnered from their protests and their riots in our streets. And they can tell you about all the different black businesses that were taken down and destroyed all in the name of George Floyd in that summer of BLM riots. So I can give you an entire list of the ways that Black Lives Matter has wronged the black community and failed to address actual issues that are happening in the black community. Yet I don't see a list of any good that they have done. Any progress that they have made when it comes to race relations in America. And what that proves to people, especially young black people is that their interest is not your interest. They're not in the interest of keeping you safe. They're not in the interest of making you successful. They are in the interest of destroying our institutions and they will do that by whatever means make it possible for them

Why Does Gen Z Believe Leftist Garbage?

"Welcome back to one on one with me, Sebastian, and amala E. So, you are at the forefront. You are probably the newest national personality for this amazing institution that is pragya university. Will you tell us a little bit about first because you're in the trenches? Will you tell us why? Generates, what are you Generation Z, what are you? Yeah, I am. Okay. So why does Gen Z? Believe all this garbage. Break it down for us. Is it just the schools or tell us how they believed what you believed? I think it's a multitude of things. I think schooling is really important. I think that's a big part of it now, although it wasn't such a big part of it when I was younger, but the rise of CRT, critical race theory and DEI, diversity equity and inclusion is particularly putting young people at risk to believe this sort of ideology. But I think more so than that. It's social media and mainstream media. What they do is they pull these emotional stories. I'll talk about it in my case, things like tamir rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, the police brutality narrative. I was inundated with that narrative by mainstream media and by social media. And of course, you hear these harrowing stories of abuse. And so you'll like a post talking about how Michael Brown was shot and killed for being black and suddenly that's all you see on your social media feeds. And the big tech overlords are cognizant of that. They're pushing this sort of ideology to young people and everybody on their platforms. So I was getting it from social media. I was getting it from mainstream media. And then I had the brilliant combination of also getting it from my mother at home. And it didn't matter how successful I was as a young black female. I went through school. I was valedictorian of my high school. I worked a job after school. I started my own club at school. I got all these scholarships. I was inquired by Yale to go to Yale. And yet you would have asked me and I would have told you, I'm a press because I'm a black woman in America. And it's because these emotional stories that do not speak to a larger truth or a larger systemic pattern are so pervasive and they're able to cut through actual logic and reason when it comes to young

So while I'm here working for Prague, you, my mom is back in Florida, working for the left. She is a fundraiser and works in development for a left leaning organization out there. So as you can imagine, being raised by my mother, who does happen to be white, I was very cognizant of my race and my gender from a very young age with the leftist ideology and going along those lines. So I grew up to be a very angry leftist for most of my life. I even ended up working for the left when I graduated high school. And of course, that didn't last very long because I'm

Terry McAuliffe Struggles Down the Stretch in Virginia Governors' Race

"I have been talking all morning about the new Terry mcauliffe in which he says, don't believe Gwen young. He's lying about me taking out a context. It's a pretty old rule Josh that if you're talking about the other guy in the last two weeks of a campaign, it hadn't gone well for you. Yeah, you followed so many campaigns over the years. They'll find of a campaign that's struggling to calibrate its message in the final few weeks of an election. It's not a good sign. I mean, if you live in Virginia, you've seen ad after ad slamming mcauliffe on education, slamming my collar on the debate comment he made saying that parents should be secondary to school boards and school administrators. And he had not changed his position he had doubled down triple down underscore that in many interviews. I saw it in last week that they think. And now they're up with an ad trying to clarify his remarks, mcauliffe said they were taking out of context as a debate in this advertisement. But look, I mean, education is the number one issue in my reporting on the Virginia governor's race. This is something that's just rallying the Republican base, but it's moving to moderate motors in the suburbs towards the Republican side. And I think McCollum now sees that. I wrote a column just about a school closure so the fact that my call didn't realize school closures were an issue when he announced his campaign last year in front of a school that was closed and didn't mention anything about reopening schools are coming up with a plan last year to reopen schools. And then later on, he kind of addressed as his own supporters as his own voters saw that was an issue that was resonated with a lot of voters. He's been slow on the uptick and realizing these issues have resonance in Virginia. And I think it's going to be a big problem for him in the close and stretch.

Is able to say so clearly, here's why the world has gone mad. Why are you not doing anything about it? And then he challenges his, oh, well, it's not like you're not allowed to say those things. Play Barry Weiss, some of the most beautiful two minutes on television of CNN being called out to their face. By the way, this is a moderate liberal. She is not a conservative, she's not a leftist, this is someone who's on the center left who worked for The New York Times. Listen. You write, there are tens of millions of Americans who aren't on the hard left or the hard right who feel the world has gone mad. So in what ways has the world gone bad? Well, you know, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times, talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you're not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we're not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad. And that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad. When we're not able to say that Hunter Biden's laptop is a story worth pursuing the world has gone that, when in the name of progress, young school children as young as kindergarten are being separated in public schools because of their race. And that is called progress rather than segregation, the world has gone mad. There are dozens of examples that I could share with you in which you often say you say a lot of knows this. And you say we're not allowed to lose the people stopping the conversation. Who are they? People let work at networks, frankly, like the one I'm speaking on right now who try and claim that, you know, it was racist to investigate the lab leak theory. It was. But I'm just saying, when you say a loud, I just think it's a provocative thing to say, you say, you say, we're not allowed to talk about these things. But they're all over the Internet. I can Google them. Everywhere. I've heard about every story you mentioned. So I'm just suggesting, of course, people are allowed to cover whatever they want to cover. But you and I both know and it would be delusional to claim otherwise that touching your finger to an increasing number of subjects that have been deemed third rail by the mainstream institutions and increasingly by some of the tech companies will lead to reputational damage, perhaps you losing your job. Your children sometimes being demonized as well. And so what happens is a kind of internal self censorship. This is something that I saw over and over again when I was at The New York

She's not a conservative, but she just does not somebody more of an independent writer as I understand it. So listen to this exchange she had with Brian stelter over the weekend on CNN.

"young" Discussed on The Young Turks

"Earlier we shared a story involving the waterloo tyson meat packing plant and how it's facing wrongful. Death lawsuits from the family members of employees who died as a result of contracting corona virus. Well seven managers at that plant have been fired and one of them is speaking out because he thinks it's important for everyone to know that they're not bad people there actually great people who were just trying to make the work environment fun especially when they were taking bets on how many of their employees would get sick by contracting corona virus so former tyson manager don merged mersch brock said managers conducted the office pool last spring within minutes following mass testing of the plants. Roughly twenty eight hundred workers county officials said last may that more than one thousand workers tested positive for the virus which hospitalized several and killed at least six now. The family members of four of the employees who had died are suing in wrongful death suits and merce brock says. No i mean we're not again. We're not bad people. we're just trying to boost morale. This is exact quote he tells the associated press. it was a group of exhausted supervisors. That had worked so hard and so smart to solve many unsolvable problems. It was simply something fun. Kind of a morale boost for having put forth an incredible effort. There was never any malicious intent. It was never meant to disparage anyone and just to give you some more details on what this pool entailed again. It was a pool among managers at this meat packing plant in waterloo iowa. The office pool involve roughly fifty dollars in cash which went to the winner who picked the correct percentage of workers testing positive for the virus. He also added that. Those involved didn't believe the pool violated company policy and that plants. Positively and the plants positivity rate would be lower than the community rate due to their mitigation efforts. So let me just quickly mentioned with. The mitigation efforts were <hes>. Based on the allegations these lawsuits there were none. The employees are alleging that they were told by their employers to ignore any symptoms that they may have as a result of contracting corona virus <hes>. They were pressured to continue working. And they were of course packed into tight quarters as they were working with no social distancing and again the allegations include the fact. They didn't provide protective gear like masks to prevent contracting the virus. So those are the mitigation efforts that this former manager who's been fired from tyson wants to point to so guys. I don't want you to miss something really important in this story <hes>. Which is a tyson china. Whitewash what's happening here by blaming the managers so it doesn't mean the managers weren't guilty of and i i mean i don't mean that in a legal sense i just mean in a sense of moral culpability. No you should not bet on. How many workers are going to get sick by the way it turns out. The crack number was a thousand thousand of their workers. Got corona virus. Six died so four of the deceased family. Members are suing. Now and so tight. That manager says something abhorrent about how oh just boosting morale talking about how the workers are gonna die. How many of them are gonna get sick spot for us managers. I don't think that's fun and i. If that's what boosts morale for managers that's pretty sick having said that the real culpable people here is is the company because that measure says look they told us solve this unsolvable problem and that he's right they say okay don't take precautions <unk>. Shoves all back into a building where we know. They're likely to get corona virus and then afterwards will blame you guys <hes>. For not getting enough production and having too many people get sick but wait a minute was executives decisions not even the managers but executives higher in the company that made that decision so are they more culpable absolutely and so in this particular case. What do they do. And this is what drives me crazy again about the press. They hire former attorney. General eric holder to do a whitewashing effort. And he says yes. The managers are guilty but the company's fine what they paid them to say that he's a lawyer i get it. He has a job. His job is to help companies avoid lawsuits etc so holders during his job but but the press should not give any weight to the fact that he's a former attorney general he was hired a whitewash he whitewashed and the and they make. It all. Seem like only the manager's fault. no it's in this case. It's tyson spalte. Forgiving them can manage irs shoved them back in their. Don't take the precautions. The only thing that matters the bottom line and then go. Oh golly gee they made a bet. I can't believe they did that. It's only therefore and not our fault. Nonsense

"Republican senator kelly law flers multimillion dollar home rapidly depreciated in value resulting in a much lower property tax bill. Now no one can explain why especially at a time when all of her neighbors property values went up <hes>. She and her husband had pumped money into remodeling this extravagant mansion. And usually when you do that the property value goes up. But i'll give you the details and you decide for yourselves. If something shady is going on leffler in her husband. Jeffrey sprecher bought a fifteen thousand square foot atlanta mansion known as discount for ten point five million dollars in two thousand nine the value of the estate as praise by fulton county government officials for the purpose of calculating annual property tax stews. Remain the same for the next seven years but then something weird happen in two thousand sixteen. The praise value suddenly plunged to four point. One five million sixty percent decline. So how does that translate to lower property tax while property taxes of course are calculated based on the value of the home and if the value of the home goes up your property tax bill goes up and if it goes down of course your property tax bill goes down now. Originally they were paying two hundred thousand dollars annually to the city and county governments in property taxes. That in two thousand sixteen after their home's value dropped. They paid ninety thousand dollars since then. The appraised value of their home has risen to roughly five million. But they're still paying about eighty thousand dollars less a year than they did when they first bought their home

"Really wanna fill you guys in on <hes>. Corona virus aid before we do our interview with senator sanders. So let's get right to it. There's a new and critical update to the corona virus negotiations that are taking place between congressional lawmakers and the white house now. Yesterday it was reported that the white house was urgently asking. Gop senators to approve one time. Six hundred dollar direct checks to americans as part of the coronavirus relief bill and at that time it really did seem as though <hes>. The trump administration was outflanking democrats in congress from the left <hes>. But now it's abundantly clear that that's not actually what's going on. It turns out that the one time six hundred dollar check that would be sent to americans would be a trade-off or essentially getting rid of the federal unemployment aid of three hundred dollars per week. Okay that tradeoff off seems pretty ridiculous. And so nancy pelosi talked about it. A little bit today <hes>. She certainly clap back but she did. Treasury secretary steve mnuchin released a statement. Are you in this speaker. Pelosi spoke today at five pm and on behalf of the president. I presented a nine hundred sixteen billion dollar proposal. This proposal includes money for state and local governments and robust liability protections for businesses schools and universities. Now pelosi wasn't buying it mostly because she had some insight that most others didn't have and she says while it is progress that leader mcconnell has signed off on a nine hundred sixteen billion dollar offer based on the bipartisan framework <hes>. The president's proposal which cuts unemployment insurance by one hundred forty billion dollars compared to the framework is unacceptable. So she says it's a nonstarter. I absolutely agree with her. On that. and there are all sorts of issues in regard to the liability protections <hes>. That are offered by republicans. But before i get to that and katie porter <hes> shredding republicans for it john. Why don't you jump in. yeah. I find it very difficult to comment on this because the contents of the package change so often. I mean just yesterday mitch. Mcconnell was saying that it wasn't a prerequisite at the liability protections. It'd be in there but now it is again. I i don't or maybe it is. I don't know. I honestly don't know we don't know what is in the bill until after it's passed and usually not even then usually we're not sure even at that point especially <hes>. You know the amount of money that we're talking about but it is like it's it's again. It's perfect that they've come up with a financial trade off the onetime payments versus basically cutting off the unemployment aid that makes sense to people on insurance that planned to die in the next week and a half it makes financial sense to them or people who are yet on <hes>. Unemployment insurance and <hes>. Having wised up to the fact that the federal government is still effectively doing nothing to stop the spread of the virus. And so it's gonna get worse and more businesses are going to get shut down and so a lot of people that are currently unemployed are probably gonna end up unemployed by the end of this dark winter <hes>. And this is as we'll probably talking about what senator sanders. This is shaping up to be the last thing that they'll do like we've waited almost a year and this. I am trying to search for word that allowed to us on this now. Right now <hes>. Is the last thing that they're going to do. Insult to injury in every possible way. It's yeah it's just it's so so shameful especially when you put it in the context of how easily the funding for <hes>. Defense for the pentagon is gonna pass probably with a veto proof. Vote in both the house which already happened and the senate which is likely to happen in the future. That's seven hundred forty billion dollars every year. The number goes up for the most part. And there's no debate about it. It's just going to happen. But i do want also talk a little bit about the liability protection or lybia liability shield which <hes>. Mitch mcconnell seems to only care about like that's the only thing that he's been pretty insistent on <hes>. It seemed like maybe he can bend to democrats will on it <hes>. If there were some pretty significant trade offs <hes>. But katie porter <hes>. Did a great job in explaining why this is a horrendous. A provision in the stimulus bill she says you may have heard that democrats and republicans have agreed upon spending nine hundred billion dollars to fund yet another round of small business loans support hospitals in essential workers and helped the ten million people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own everyone at the negotiating table including senate. Republicans have agreed to a compromise except one mitch. Mcconnell is refusing to bring it to the floor unless it wipes away all cove related lawsuits filed that allege injury or death due to corporate negligence. And she goes on to say that. These lawsuits represent the worst of the worst examples of disregard for human life cases filed on behalf of nursing home patients and grocery store workers who died because the company in charge of keeping them safe prioritize cutting costs over protecting them. And i think one of the best examples to share with you guys is what is happening now with a tyson. Meat packing plant <hes>. Where <hes>. You know tyson facing a wrongful death lawsuit because dozens of their workers got sick and died due to their negligence. Cnn has more details on that. Let's watch according to the allegations. The plant manager of the waterloo facility organized a cash volume winner. Take all betting pool for supervisors and managers to wager. How many employees would test positive for covid. Nineteen in the end more than a thousand employees would catch the virus about a third of the nearly three thousand working at the plant on stare. Ernest ladders spoke to c. n. N.'s gary tuchman in april about his conversation with tyson's hr department. They told me <hes>. I was i was i was i was safe. And they told me that <hes>. Everything was okay and they told me. I have a better chance. A catching the corona virus. Going out to walmart and enticing. Come the work. you safe. The <hes> tyson employers also allegedly told their employees to ignore any symptoms. They might be suffering from contracting corona virus into just keep working. it's doesn't insane <hes>. yeah no the. The era of self-regulation of plants like tyson one needs to change. Which is a whites. Good that the department of agriculture is gonna be controlled by tom. Bill sack who while he was governor by said that they should self-regulate

"Hey everyone welcome back to ty t. an-and ida with you. And i mentioned at the top of the show. But i want to remind you all again. Please check out. ida's podcast. True serum really really great podcast. I was listening to your last episode from sunday. i think it was ida and It it takes work to post a podcast. Solo like you hosted solo and you talked about some really important topics including the double standard regarding comma harris's personal life versus malania trump's personal life like we we stood up for melania when you know democrats were criticizing her for her modeling career and posing nude and all that and so it's really disgusting to see both conservatives and maybe even some You know voters democratic voters talking about whoever kamla harris dated early in her career. Who cares no one cares. Doesn't matter let's move on. She's the vice president elect. And i just think that you had really great insights there so checkout truth serum everyone It's a great show Go ahead this. Thank you okay. Cool yeah there's a little bit of a delay so sometimes when you start talking. I don't hear it until i'm already talking again. So if it ever sounds like. I'm interrupting you. That's not what i'm trying to do but anyway. Let's let's talk about j. P. morgan and how it's reacting to donald trump's refusal to concede so j. p. Morgan is starting to panic about the fact that donald trump is refusing to concede to joe biden. Who won the general election. He is the president elect and During a recent call with investors one of their one of their top guys was basically saying that there could be a nightmare election scenario where trump continues to refuse concession to joe biden and that nightmare scenario could yes dismantle our democracy. That would be a problem. But they're more concerned about how it could hurt the markets. So let me give you those details. So j. p. Morgan is telling its clients that there's still a chance that this process can descend into complete chaos. Bottom line michael symbolist. Who's the j. p. morgan asset management guy says A lot of very unorthodox things have to happen for trump to be reelected even so. I'm not ruling anything out the j. p. morgan strategists laid out several developments that could cast doubt on the outcome including that one or more states submitting competing. Slates of electors Those competing slates would then be resolved. January six by the new congress through rules spelled out in the electoral count act of eighteen. Eighty seven so he says that the nightmare scenario for markets according to symbolist Would be if senate. Republicans declare the electoral count. Act unconstitutional flip. Three states trump's favor to give him the required. A two hundred. Seventy electoral votes and democrats refused to participate. All of which sets the prospect of dueling inaugurations. Another risk laid out by him is if bar directs investigators to seize or impound election records to probe for voter fraud slowing down the process. So the panic here is that would that would lead the markets to a complete tailspin. It would be a disaster so just be ready for that possibility. Also human beings. American alas relief is.

It's the same reaction that we had to the republican senators. Were speaking out against trump. You don't get brownie points for doing your job so Tucker carlson presents himself as a news guy as someone who's delivering the news in the facts to the american people okay. You don't get brownie points for actually doing that. Once in a while it would be far more impressive. He did it on a regular basis We gotta take a break But we'll talk about this and more when we come back J. p. morgan is worried. About how trump refusing to concede would hurt the markets.

"Don't we talk about that alright. So a spokesman for donald trump's eldest son don jr. has confirmed that he is in fact infected with corona virus. This is probably the least surprising story that has ever broken while we've been on air The spokesperson says that the younger trump learned his diagnosis earlier this week and has no symptoms and has been quarantining Trump junior her is the latest member of the president's family to become infected with the virus we also learned by the way That rudy giuliani son. Contracted the virus as well and rudy. Giuliani was supposed to be part of some sort of preceding today involving their lunatic efforts. And trying to overturn the election. He did not attend Mostly because the lawyers are probably incredibly embarrassed of him but he's also quarantining due to the fact that he was in close contact with his son who test positive for covid thoughts and prayers thoughts and prayers prayers assault. I gotta say. I'm you know i'm thinking about the two hundred thousand people plus and then some that loss and i'm thinking of being about the nurses who are crying because they're throwing bodies in things called the pits on thinking about the doctors who are compromising who are sacrificing their own health that are overwhelmed and hospitals right now and these very people who have politicized this virus so much that people are walking around you know against their own interest. I mean all. I gotta say is god speed. Yeah it is. It is kind of incredible. How like here's the thing that i don't think trump's supporters really understand because fine they might think corona viruses a hoax at the end of the day. Two hundred fifty thousand americans are dead from this virus. The numbers did not have to be that high. We were gonna lose people of course but that's a tragedy on its own but donald trump's in action his refusal to be clear what the american people about what they needed to do. In order to prevent contracting this virus spreading this virus it led to this insane amount of americans and all of those people who died have family members. There are people alive today. Obviously lost loved ones friends family as a result of trump's incompetence.

"Yes yeah he he. Only we only rose with people who his boots yeah. You're absolutely right about that. He would retaliate against states that he felt what we're unfriendly to him. I mean he did that in the way he crafted his two thousand seventeen tax plan and a number of other things. I mean threatening to cut fema funding to various blue states. I mean he did that throughout his term. There's no question and i agree with you. I mean i don't want joe biden to govern in that way. I don't want him to treat one american different from the other. Even if i disagree with the other politically speaking. But i just i wanna see some strength and i want to see more of a fight on behalf of democrats right like i wanna see them actually hold republican lawmakers accountable when they do break the law when senator lindsey graham tries to encourage the secretary of state from georgia to throw away perfectly legal ballots that is a crime and he should be investigated for that period. But you know no you should be. You should go. there's evidence of it. You shouldn't just be investigated there needs to become the we gotta start having consequences for bad behaviors and this is what we're teaching people in this country. And that is what enables a kyle. Rittenhouse is when you see the people that you follow. And that's why they follow them blindly and it's become a cold because they're watching. These people behave unapologetically doing things that are just and not having any consequences. And that's why they idolize these people and one final mention. And i think this was the weakest and most pathetic response tennessee senator Lamar alexander another republican essentially says you know. Trump has the right to want recounts and investigations into potential voter fraud. But you know in the meantime he should. He should allow joe biden to begin the transition process. Let me give you one of statements. He says it looks like biden has a very good chance to be president-elect and if there's any chance that he will be and it looks like there is a very good chance. I believe the trump administration ought to provide the biden administration with all the transition materials and sources and meetings necessary so we have a smooth transition on both sides so both sides are ready on day one And then you know. He continues on to say what i would hope. Is that the loser of this. Election would follow al gore's example and put the country. I congratulate the winner. Help him off to a good beginning to a new term whether it's trump or biden but it's it's biden you know it's biden. Don't don't even like leave it up to fate right like you know what the truth is. So he's like trying to straddle both sides. I think it's i mean it's amazing how that's actually a more courageous response than the majority of republican senators who have either remained silent or completely enabled donald trump but even so that response is pathetic. He knows what the truth is. And he's he's trying to put out this message in a way where all of these trump cronies won't come after him aggressively. He's they're so afraid and it's just it's unbelievable. What's really interesting is that i think to myself oftentimes donald trump must have one hell of a walt like d. Has there have like the the dirtiest pi people working on these politicians where he has them all in the jar because it is unbelievable to see. I mean listen i'm not. I'm i'm just speculating here. But it is now beyond donald trump to bring dirty business into the white house. It's been there since he got there right. I mean there's been dirty business in the hawk. White house is starting but he brought a different type element of dirty business into the white house because these people not only. It's not just that they agree with him. They seem like they're afraid of him like he is the ben bully seem so weird to see the way and my only my only wish. Is that the people. The american people pay attention to these elected officials when they have to go back and vote in in two years and four years and pay attention on two whole stood up for you whether they are republican or democrat and get them out of there because these making decisions about your your your Where you live and your your immediate life. And i just don't understand. I don't understand why some of these people we elected. Well we're definitely keeping track of these republican senator. So take a quick look at the emoji. Graphic that our graphics team Put together shows you. The number of gop senators who still deny reality related to the general election and as you can see only five of them. Acknowledge what the reality is. Joe biden is the president elect and that donald trump should the transition process to begin. That is such a depressing amusing graphic to say the least But we'll we'll keep you guys updated as we learn more all right. We gotta take a quick break but when we come back Tucker carlson was a very bad boy. Yeah the audacity to tell the truth for once and now. His viewers not too happy.

"Right. Let's let's move onto the the topics that are leading to people losing their lives including donald trump's a refusal to concede which means that president-elect biden still can't prepare for coronavirus effectively as a result so as as donald trump's as donald trump's efforts to stage a coup seemed to become more and more serious each day a few of the feckless republican lawmakers who had remained silent have finally decided to say a word or two now. I want to be clear that some of these statements are certainly stronger than others. You know mitt romney for instance who will begin with Is someone who's known to poke at or critique trump here and there but this is one of the stronger statements that he released and he did so on twitter. So let me read it to you. He writes having failed to make any having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law. The president has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert. The will of the people overturned the election. It is difficult to imagine a worse more undemocratic action by sitting american president. And to be honest with you this is important. And the reason why it's say mitt romney's statement is important is because there is a possibility that if state lawmakers play ball with trump which is unlikely at the moment but if they do and eventually this election really becomes contested and the senate needs to vote obviously with republicans taking control of the senate as of now we would need republican senators to do the right thing and that is a terrifying thing to leave to chance to be honest with you but mitt. Romney is making clear here that you know he absolutely unequivocally disagrees with what donald trump is doing. He calls it undemocratic. And i'm glad that he has this take There are others. But i want to get your thoughts you.

Give a microphone and continue to amplify the voices of off the circus right People are dying every day. All kinds of things are happening all over the world and the washington post is having a sit down.

Trying to normalize the other side's opinion when the other side is evil and wrong and that's not journalism that is in sation eliza and continuing to create bigger problems from us. They politicize black lives matter to try to justify the wrongdoings of back people into to continuously you know degrade and be rape people speaking up for the lives of black and brown people and you know it. It just shows that this country doesn't care about white people either. This is all about the elite here because those people that were murdered their lives. Do we don't even talk about them. As human beings we talk about kyle and he's become the poster child of one of the talking points of this ridiculous colt that follows donald trump. Yeah you know to your point about the false equivalency between protesters who are you know fighting back against two tiered justice system and all sorts of injustices that we've seen with our very eyes and various videos featuring police shootings to equate them with right-wing gang members because that's what they are is pretty shameful and disgusting and these are the same people who enable donald trump's denials of the outcome of the general election people who are essentially enabling him to dismantle our democratic process to say that black lives matter. Protesters are Basically like the left-wing component of whatever kyle rittenhouse is is incredibly incredibly embarrassing and pathetic for any news organization that tries to draw that false equivalency. It's one thing to take a comment or statement from kyle rittenhouse He's gonna defend what he engaged in. But i do think it's important for these media outlets to be incredibly clear about what he did wrong. It's not like he was in his front yard and he was approached by a group of individuals who pose an imminent threat to his life. He drove across state lines with his family intending to go to this protest armed with a gun that he did not have was not legally in possession of he opened fire and as protesters were chasing him to get a hold of his gun so he didn't hurt anyone else. He opened fire again injuring one more person and killing another person. So that's what we're dealing with here with carl rittenhouse and you know the thing that sucks the most.

A yeah, you know the kind of chocolate humor that lead partner with the cotton Forster's Park Service to manage in Stewart in protect the connell divide shell, which for those of you know as a trail that is three thousand one hundred miles long runs her Mexico. Canada lines of the Rocky Mountain West and it. It actually is a congressionally designated resource it protects. kind of a big deal. North American watershed, so it's where the Atlantic and Pacific watersheds begins so when we talk about on the trail, we're not just a physical thing that you can hiker biker. Ride a horse on. We're talking about this landscape. A one point nine eight million acres, that is the watt are shed of the North American continent and when we talk about that. We're talking about water climate change clean, air. Access to Public Orlando are federally managed and ensuring that people understand that they live. Talking about the history of those landscapes that have a longer history than when Congress designated them as a national sneak travel, talking about indigenous cultures and communities, their stories, and their experiences needed to be need to be added to the history, and the land is we talk about them and understand them respect and honor them. A lot of our work is obviously in the traditional angsty bank. Volunteers out doing trail work, but it's awesome engaging with local communities on both physical communities like Saliva Colorado, but also communities of color that have a long attachment and connection to these landscapes often are recognized in our current. They were in so how we can leverage this landscape as a way to broaden the understanding of how we relate to these landscapes in their long history, and they're. They're hopefully long future is critical for our work it really is about creating connections to call her community and landscapes themselves, and then we can also talk about how many of these things whether it's climate, change or impact of fire or the impact of oil and gas. Leasing, general access to are are these these these natural places is critical to our health and I think when they all mentioned his in these days of Kobe is what I'm calling it. One thing. We've recognized more than ever before. HOW IMPORTANT HAVING!.

"Hey we love being in the land of enchantment so much a couple weeks ago that we came back to another episode this time sitting down with two members of congress in house a wildlife corridors summit it is a fabulous abuse conversation with assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and first term congresswoman deb haaland earlier this year. She became the first native american woman to preside over the house of representatives. We talked about wildlife tribal issues national monuments and a whole lot more. I'm very excited about this. Episode also also very excited that later this week we are going to be live in tucson arizona coming up this thursday august twenty ninth. We will be talking the congressman role gonzalvo the chairman of the house natural resources committee. We've got len ness a for the head of natives outdoors and stephanie sklar the executive director of the sonoran institute. If you are in town please come take a listen. We're going to be at american eat company on south fourth avenue. That's an all local food hall all in market. We're going to be taking over the north room starting at three thirty on thursday the twenty ninth. We'll start recording the podcast around four. Please stick around afterwards words to chat with us. Maybe have a beer again this coming thursday. The twenty ninth american eat company in tucson. The podcast starts at four in the afternoon soon. We will see they're all right. Let's do the news starting with some discouraging signs for the sage grouse. That's the bird whose habitat is being threatened and by oil and gas development across the west in idaho. The grouses population has dropped by fifty two percent since two thousand sixteen. That's a trend that biologists allergists have seen in neighboring states as well in wyoming thirty three oil and gas wells have been drilled in core sage grouse habitat under the trump administration compare that to just eight wells at the end of the obama years a report that came out last month from the national wildlife federation the audubon society and the wilderness society the found at the rate of oil and gas leasing in sage grouse habitat is nearly three times higher on the trump administration than it was after the obama administration ministration cut a deal that attempted to stave off a listing under the endangered species act and in a related story. The interior department has launched an all all out assault on the endangered species act announcing three new rules that weaken enforcement of wildlife protections first interior will weaken protections for species species that are listed as threatened but not yet endangered the obvious result the areas that more species will then continue to decline and end up being endangered secondly the rules change the definition of critical habitat they now lit interior leave out places that are suitable for an endangered species but are no longer her current habitat again. It's not rocket science to realize that if you protect less land you are reducing the chances that species could recover in the future and finally interior can now choose to ignore the impacts of climate change on endangered species. The obvious example here is the polar bear their their habitat is literally melting away so they are going to have to move in order to survive but under these new rules interior wouldn't have to protect areas the the polar bears will inevitably have to move to so all of these changes as a whole make it clear the intent here is to give interior secretary david bernhardt all the leeway he needs to pick and choose which species to save and which to let go extinct if that's more convenient his former clients alliance and of course changes like this will not go unchallenged expect to see lots of lawsuits from state attorneys general and conservation groups we are honored to be joined today by two new mexico congressional representatives assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and representative deborah holland. Thanks to both of you for being here on the podcast. Today this is all right. Thanks for coming out to towns new mexico and you're always welcome make sure you get a chance to <hes> get outdoors here and enjoy some of the splendors of the cuisine and once you get hooked on chill. You're not gonna turn back. I never turn down a chance against and yes thank you congress. Thank you assistant speaker for having me in your district. We'll chairwoman holidays. It's it's always use. Well is one of my favorite places in the entire world and not just being here and test drive up here is beautiful and amazing. One one of the most spectacular drives yeah so we're recording this right now. From the sagebrush in there is a wildlife summit going on right now to discuss conserving wildlife migration corridors put on by the national wildlife federation and a host of other land wildlife advocates and we'll. We'll talk more about that in in a minute but i want to start by acknowledging that this is a very special part of the south west here in northern new mexico. You can't help but be aware of the strong connections between the people and the land and water and wildlife here. It is obviously a spiritual connection. That's a part of the the core identity of the tribal cultures and the hispanic cultures that have been here for thousands and hundreds of years respectively actively. I wonder if i wanna start with both of you to talk about how the trump administration's policies as they affect new mexico's land and walter and wildlife do they feel personal to you because of that connection absolutely they absolutely feel personal to me and i take that personal personal emotion to congress with me when i am defending our mine and ben raise bill to protect chaka canyon for example right <hes> against gas and oil drilling for a ten mile radius so that area needs permanent protections my <hes> the my ancestoral homeland part of my argument in committee when we were passing the bill through markup was my ancestors are buried there thinking thinking that that might help people to understand the significance of it <hes> we didn't get one republican to vote that bill through committee so so yes yes it is personal to me when i think about the <hes> gosh the centuries of drought and famine that my ancestors persevered through because they had the idea that they needed to sustain themselves so that generations down the line would move into the future and and be their legacy congressman look the significance of the summit <hes> that has come together here highlighting how we have to be working together not just to protect these wildlife corridors but protecting our public lands and access. I'm here in the community where we are today the the significance associated with the pueblo leaders with house pueblo. If you've hadn't if you had a chance to go visit taus pablo really to pay your respects there. There's there's something spiritual usual magical serene about just taking a few footsteps and stopping and just taking it in the magic of the return of blue lake another important protected areas sacred site and as congressman holland pointed out the significance of legislation solution to protect chuckle canyon in the greater area surrounding it <hes> as deb said her ancestors go back thirty four thirty five generations nations time immemorial <hes> active in eight hundred a._d. Think about the significance of that but growing up and and being able to get into the outdoors whether it was camping or fishing or hiking <hes> getting on my bike <hes> exploring new things learning what to eat and what not to eat <hes> careful when you're out there <hes> but it's about that education and what i appreciate from <hes> the pueblo leaders in friends that i've <hes> <hes> called friends of mine entire life they help me understand the magic of that medicine chest and so while many of us may go into the bathroom war in two of a utility room and open up a door and there's all your medicine and cabinet think about that medicine chest is with the gathering of herbs of healing of the spiritual place that can't even describe the magic of spirituality <hes> the special place that we call home in new mexico but especially here in towse and all of our public lands that were so honored to work together to protect you are both in an unique positions to lead on wildlife and environmental issues as an assistant speaker as a subcommittee chair on <music> on natural resources share real quickly your priorities on the legislative level for new mexico's land and water. Are you mentioned chaco canyon. What else is on on your shortlist right. Well making it impossible for any president to take a pen and chop off a big swath of our public lands another thing right. We want those public lands intact for every single person to enjoy. I like to see a fully fund full funding of the land and water conservation fund <hes> <hes> and you know i have been very very outspoken about no border wall because the border wall in and of itself alf is it hampers the ability for wildlife to sustain itself as well so all of those you know look there's is no one to speak up for the animals and the fish and the plants in the forest we have to do that and and it's pretty obvious to me that we're here because because of our environment right we destroy it that means the destruction of future generations so so those are some of my priorities and and proud and happy to stand up for them. Well i want to thank god chairwoman holland for the work and the advocacy that she brings everyday <hes> she is one of the newly elected chairs of a subcommittee as a new member of the house of representatives. <hes> that's an incredible feat and responsibility <hes> in previous congresses you we don't see new members have that leadership role as one of the leaders <hes> congresswoman holland <hes> brought <hes> several other leaders to new mexico because the honor of hosting german greenhow. Oh who's the chair of the full committee on natural resources alan lowenthal also subcommittee chair <hes> and congresswoman holland chair holland and i did a site visit out to choco where we didn't just take in the history to sacred secred nature of that important place but we also went out to where there was some methane plumes now you can smell it when you're out there but the groups that came together with us actually shared with some cameras that allowed us to see it while we smelled it we had field hearings in new mexico co that chairwoman holland helped lead. We took that back. She led the effort in the house of representatives with the hearing on the protection of chaco canyon <hes> as the assistant speaker. I make sure that i raise my voice when we're in those meetings where encouraging the chairs of the committees to prioritize these important public land <hes> legislation <hes> packages well <hes> we worked together <hes> earlier this year when we pass to john dingell lands package act which personally family authorized land water conservation fund protected over a million acres including right here in new mexico right here in the house <hes> areas right in the real grounded on nor to down with a desert peaks in the oregon mountains and so that's how we can work together you raise your voice. You lend your advocacy you collaborate your partner and you make sure that you build to that table as large as you can until you're able to get these packages across the finish line. We're going to get back to l. w. c._f. Because as as we all know were we're halfway there in terms of authorising but not guaranteeing funding but i want to start with wildlife corridors because we are here at a wildlife migration summit. There is a bill pending wildlife corridors conservation act <hes> first of all either of you just walk us through briefly what that bill does does and then more importantly. What do you think the chances are of getting some major wildlife bill through in this congressional session so the the critical nature of this package. Is it protects the it does what it says. It's a wildlife poor door conservation act so think of the movement went heard or species as they're going from one area to another <hes> as we continue to see build out an encroachment challenges with a climate change changing terrains raines ecosystems in drought those wildlife corridors are quickly disappearing <hes> they're they're being infringed upon if you will <hes> and as deb said there's no one out there <hes> if you will at least we've figured it out yet <hes> to understand the spoken word from the creatures <hes> that we the <hes> call our friends and that we're not <hes> to to protect <hes> many friends and family as well that <hes> extend that a branch out to even been call family as well with our four legged friends or those that flyer those swim <hes> and so that's what this package will do it ensures that we're gonna protect corridors we identify identify these corridors that we also work with tribal leaders with pueblo leaders and we work to maintain that wildlife corridor for the movement of those animals across these protected lands public public areas tribal land pueblo lands as well. It's an important package..

"Those those larger goals <hes> and to establishing <hes> understanding between the decision makers and Congress the Federal Agent State Agents and state leaders and we need to continue we will continue to <hes> ensure that that level of consultation and that level of commitment on the part of these agencies <hes> is is realized moving forward on these issues these these types of issues governor Brian Vile of Academic Pueblo here in New Mexico? Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to us today and for your perspective and congratulations on the Choco protection bill taking a big step forward today thank you we'll we'll let you go and we will start looping in the crowd that we've got here who unfortunately we're not able to hear you so we'll let you go. Thank you again governor for for joining us today. Thank you very much all right so I want to start then with Paul read from archaeology southwest since obviously Choco is also incredibly important from an archaeological perspective. Why is this an area from archaeological sense worthy of protection and what what are the risks of drilling there right well Taco itself of course is a national park with nearly four thousand sites tacos been protected as a park since one thousand nine hundred eighty well we're concerned about is literally one hundred feet outside the boundary of Choco and what we have of course is this explosion to choose words carefully and the oil and gas drilling almost right up to Jacko's macos boundary once companies figured out how to get into the Mac Os shale formation at about a mile down they've been able to do that and we've had something like two thousand wells go in in a relatively few number of years so as we get outside the TACO boundary we've been concerned for six or seven years now and going further back but really active in that time trying to help them through this process primarily of modifying their long range plan and saying you know maybe we don't have to open up all these lands for drilling? Let's set some aside. Let's figure out what lands should perhaps be permanently set aside and protected even though they're not part of Taco in the park. What other special areas can we put in place for protection and the other thing? We've really ramped up and I'm thrilled that we had governor bio for a few minutes is we've develop partnerships now with almost ten tribes including the Navajo nation and a number of Pablo nations in our goal. There is to get those tribal voices to the table. This is something that and Blah all the federal agencies talk about constantly but the follow up on their part can sometimes be short so I think it's fair to say that ACA probably is the most active group at this point. That's one reason why we partnered with Alabama last fall to get academic tribal members out on the landscape and identifying areas of concern at this point. We have a report on that. That's going to be in the governor's hands here on a scale of days and once it's been approved through the governor and they decide what can be released to the public. We'll have some very concrete results to share with the rest of the world and I think we'll see that a lot of the resources that archaeologists can identify have already been protected but a broad range of resources that tribal members see on the landscape including. Clearly natural features that we would never think about or not really being protected so that's a big part of what we're trying to do. At this stage so commissioner Garcia Richard. Let's talk oil and gas drilling. Obviously oil and gas development is booming in in New Mexico and that is a huge part of the state's economy right now you were elected in November two thousand eighteen with the promise of of obviously not undoing that or hampering the business of oil and gas drilling but it also protecting the state so how do you balance the impacts both environmentally and economically. Thank you for that question so I just want to before I begin my remarks remind everyone that as I like to do often that we are on aboriginal land here where we are standing in Santa Fe and so this topic is is very apropos to to talk about right now. The the State Land Office issued an executive order that took seventy two thousand acres in the Choco area off the table for future oil and gas drilling and guess what folks the bottom did not go out of the market we are still able to bring in record revenue from oil and gas development into the state so despite what naysayers may say about essential protections that we must have on our a cultural and sacred sites it can be done in a balanced sustainable way and you know it's funny. I don't know if you all here know this but governor vile not not only had he been the lieutenant governor for Acapella he actually was the cultural resources officer for the Pueblo as well so he really has a great knowledge expertise and background in terms of not only the western archaeological perspective live on protecting the Choco the Greater Choco area but also the native perspective because sometimes what is sort of invisible to the western archaeological I will be Y- contributed from our native brothers and sisters in their communities and their backgrounds and their expertise and so it's essential that we have both schools of thought coming to the table to really inform our decisions around protection of our cultural and and sacred sites. I want to bring in Todd Lady who is the deputy cabinet secretary at the energy mineral and Natural Resources Department. Obviously you're area has your department has a lot of responsibilities possibilities in this area in terms of responsible drilling we analyze data center for Western priorities looked at data from the oil conservation division last year in New Mexico oil and gas operators reported fifteen fifteen hundred spills more than more than four per day what steps does can your department take to make sure that drilling when it happens is happening in a safe way that is not endangering the environment consistently so that's that's an excellent question and I I have to sort of escape the answer by saying it depends so so our our jurisdiction is oiling gas drilling in the state but but not on federal land not on state land right so so we have a unique role here in that we can we can set rules but say in the Chaco area aware that's all federal land except for the state land that is up there. There isn't a whole lot that we can do in in that specific area through throughout the state. We have new initiatives that are coming online now to ensure just what governor via talked about and that is responsible drilling we can't we know we can't shut off oil and gas development. It's two essential to the economy but we can ensure responsible development commissioner. Let's take a step set-back you you had previously served as a state legislator. You've now been in this job for nearly a year or well half a year I guess so what are your priorities for the state land office and and I think it's important to acknowledge that you come in in many ways with a diametrically opposite view of public lands as your predecessor so how has that first six months been in what are your priorities so far I really appreciate that question and I always look forward to the opportunity to talk about our plans at the state land office so essentially they have everything to do with the future of not only the economy in New Mexico but the climate a globally as well. I mean I really think that right now we are at a crucial pivotal moment where policy decisions that we can make you know at at some of our state agencies at the governor's honors level and then at the state land office really will impact and has an opportunity to impact climate challenges moving forward and so one of my number one priorities that state land office is is to ensure that we are getting every single penny that is due new Mexicans from our natural resources and right now oil and gas developers pay less to develop New Mexico oil oil and gas than they do in Texas the Great Progressive State of Texas right next door actually requires oil and gas developers to pay more for those very precious resources that once they leave the ground are gone and so we have an advocacy and a attempt that we're calling raise the rate we tried it in the last legislative session but essentially we would like oil and gas developers to pay the same rate on our minerals as Texas XS pays and that is a quarter so twenty five percent and currently the rate. Is it more in line with federal rate. It's actually it's capped at twenty percent so the federal rate is twelve and a half and New Mexico's capped at twenty in statute so that's a legislative <hes> that has the legislative fix I would appreciate any any and everyone's help with it because as we move forward and really diversify our economy in New Mexico we know that oil the gas will not last forever. Whatever whatever your view of that industry is that is a finite resource so we should be getting every penny that we're due for the resource ball we have it while at the same time looking to diversify in forms of renewable energy revenue in forms of <hes> Eco Tourism and outdoor recreation revenue and really looking at alternate ways to fund state government Paul Read? This is not necessarily an archaeological question but I understand you lived in Farmington is and raised families. They're a family there. What was that like seeing the the boom and bust cycles that especially impact a town like Farmington that he's Pretty Independent on that that single economic sector right yeah I was in Farmington for twenty six years and I'm I've been in towels now for five so I like to change I mean it was very informative for me to live in Farmington and and to kind of see firsthand what that boom and bust cycle was like and I think it was hard on a lot of families when it went to Farmington in eighty eight the population was probably just under forty thousand it grew over the next ten years to more than fifty cap there and I think they've fallen back a bit now and it'll probably boom again because unfortunately our state in that community in particular is still locked into the oil and gas boom and bust cycle so I think as Commissioner Garcia Richard Said we can improve the way we manage our economy Farmington? The one thing I did see in Farmington over those twenty six years was lots of talk. During those bust cycles about what can we do you know Farmington is a natural gateway to Colorado to the Navajo nation to the badlands lots of beautiful natural places to do things and so the community leaders would get together and they'd say you know we should really we should really think about this differently understand now with some support from outside groups there again having a very serious conversation about how to do that in Farmington and I think it's at least twenty years too late but you know there's hope that they can eventually direct the economy up there in a different direction you know the other thing of course is not that we're talking about cold today but there's coal in the power plant situation now that is driven ribbon the four corners economy since nineteen fifty nine or nineteen sixty so there's definitely some transition needs to happen there as well just to piggyback on that a little bit Paul I would. I would agree with you that not only are we too late but this very well may be the last boom we see in extractive industry the last true boom we see just because of where predictions are in terms of these oil reserves in terms of the price of alternate. Alternate forms of energy are plummeting. It just does not make economic sense anymore to develop these resources from the ground when when solar and wind are becoming more and more cost effective all the time <hes> we're really talking about the last throes I believe of extraction todd your your agency covers more than just oil and gas but also hard rock mining coal mining renewable energy and conservation from your perspective perspective. How do you see New Mexico's energy future laying out over over twenty thirty years?.

"I wanted to dive into more than just his favorite parks. Although, of course, we will do that, too. But Mike is story is a whole lot more than just Instagram. Ing our parks. It's about personal identity and faith and setting out to do something that seems impossible, or at least very expensive without life savings to fall back on. Plus, we will bring you the story. Or maybe it's more of a tall tale about the only woman known to have robbed a stagecoach. In the Zona territory. And before we get started a little housekeeping. We are taking this podcast on the road. We're going to be doing a series of live shows across the west this summer. Nothing big just a few guests. Maybe a few beers talking about public lands, and environmental issues that communities are facing right now across the west, we want to have a conversation with activists with scientists may be a politician or two. If you have thoughts about who we should talk to or where we should go. Go ahead, drop us an Email podcast at western priorities dot org. And of course, we will bring you more details as this plan comes together over the summer. Now, let's do the news. If at first you don't succeed keep trying to bring back coal that is the order of the day at the bureau of land management. You will remember last month. A judge found that then interior secretary Ryan Zinke jumped the gun when he reversed an Obama. Era order that paused new coal leasing on public lands. So just a few weeks later, BLM did just that they've released a draft environmental assessment on the impacts of restarting coal leasing. It is quite the read. Beal says it won't consider the social cost of carbon. That is to say the economic damage caused by extra coal mining because in part, and I am quoting here, the full social benefits of coal fired energy production have not been monetised. Yeah. So you now have less than fifteen days to tell interior secretary David Bernhardt. What you think of this plan, we have already talked a lot on this podcast about the various ways the Trump administration is cutting the public out of decision making making a huge decision like this with only fifteen days to comment is about as a grievous as it gets. We do have a link to the public. Form in the show notes. And speaking of cutting out the public political appointees at interior are interfering with requests, under the freedom of information act Jacob Holzmann at sea Q, rollcall reported on this story based on documents that we obtained here at the center for western priorities. It is called the awareness review process. If political appointees, come up in a foyer response, those appointees, get to see that response before it goes out the door, but we have proof that they are not just reviewing those responses in one case. The interior department spokesperson had their swift stepped in when she was given ninety six pages of materials about Lola Zinke, the wife of Ryan Zinke, swift in an E mail claimed that a number of pages are non responsive even after the foia officer pushes back, and we don't know exactly what happened after that. But the final foyer response that was given to western values project, somehow shrunk. From ninety six pages to just sixteen eighty pages somewhere along the way vanish, even though the freedom of information, act officer said these are responsive and this is not a one time thing. We've also got a memo from the National Park Service foia office in DC in which civil servants reveal that out of ten foia requests, sent up to political appointees for review, foia officers had been told to hold back issuing responses on nine of them nine out of ten. The memo makes it clear, quote delays resulting from the awareness review process are preventing the park service from meeting its legal obligations under the freedom of information act, such delays. Leave NPS open to potential indication which could result in the assessment of attorney's fees. Needless to say this memo will be of serious interest to attorneys who are already suing or thinking about suing the interior department for. Refusing to release documents under foia..
