Book the power of Positive Leadership, and how you can put these ideas to work in your business welcome John. Bill, it's great to be with you. What I find with meters from all different disciplines is it everyone can look back and identify at least one person who has influenced and inspired them. For you John, who would that be you look back to help you in your career who gives you some sort of insight or encouragement who has helped you. Well. No doubt about it Ken Blanchard. The author of the One Minute Manager. He's influenced millions of liters. But for me, he was someone who showed me what a liter was like. He showed me what an author and speaker could do in this world that was really about serving empowering others. anyways. Just an amazing role model from he's he's eighty years old now and we've actually even done some retreats together in the last few years and it's just been such a an honor to share the stage with him and be with him but it's pretty funny we we. Did a retreat together and he was almost like fallen asleep before the session and next thing you know he got on stage and he went into just performing mode and he was unbelievable eighty years old and he's still sharing the passion and the drive and making an impact and I even spoke like like maybe a third of what I was going to speak because he was so on it and I thought, you know that's what I want to be like eighty. So he still inspiring me to this day and when I first started, he was my role model back. It's really fortunate to have someone take you under their wing like Ken Blanchard. Because experience has connections his insights and his business. How did you make that connection? John. You had a great story with small business owners. You WanNa, make sure that you're looking for people who have done it before people who could show you the way and we often think that the mentors find us. But as a small business owner, you have to actually go out and seek your mentors you have to pursue them and so whenever someone. Reaches out to me I could tell they're pursuing may are maybe someone I'm supposed to help it depends on their heart, their interest and how hard willing to work. But you could tell that person is is interested for me I reached out to Ken. I asked him to endorse my first book, and then from there I was out speaking in Las Vegas. And I saw that he was going to be out there as well and so I reached out to his assistant and said, Hey I want to be out there would love to meet with Ken I knew Danny Gans because Danny Gans had a quote for the energy bus my most popular book that came out in two thousand and seven and so the. Book I think had just come out and Danny wrote a great quote for it. So I reached out Danny ends and happened to be out there would love to come to your show. He said, why don't you come back stage hang out with me I said great. Can I bring Ken Blanchard? He said sure. So then I invited Ken to come days. Before the show and that's how we all connect you and Obviously a close ever since. So it really is all about relationships people reach out to mentors wanting something that you have to make sure you're giving the mets or something that's a great point. I hope everyone understands the point that Jones bring yet it's not just what you ask for from others who is what you bring to the Party when he wanted to meet Ken Blanchard John offered him the chance to meet Dan against and that would be exciting. Be value add in establishing that relationship what a great story. John You've written how many books now it's hard to keep count. I know it was eighteen and now it's twenty. So it's going fast but about twenty bucks fabulous. Getting started as an author isn't easy. How did you rake in with your first book and what was the result of that four year career? Well. It's not easy at all to start with a book just like it's not easy to start any business, right so I used to be in the restaurant business and starting a franchise and will be the first Franchisee in Florida of a franchise I should say and and getting going like that was difficult and then when I started in the book. World it was the same thing. No one knew me. You're starting from scratch, and so you have to build a platform. So I started sharing weakly positive tips but actually was doing that even before I wrote a book or one of the right of books, I was doing these weekly positive tips because I was trying to be more positive myself and then. I was trying to help others be more positive. So I was reading these tips and that led to a small book deal from a small publisher ad landed that saw my newsletters and said you should write a book. So that started the process that I wrote this book he published it he went out of business so I was able to buy the Rights back and then took that book and then try to get a bigger publisher to buy it a bigger publisher. Did I did one other book with them and then actually everything you know faltered it was not going well, the books didn't do. Well, I wasn't getting a lot of speaking engagements. So I was really struggling it was two thousand and sex. I wrote the energy bus and when I wrote that I said, I'm going to write this book I. I'm not GonNa try to find a publisher it got rejected by thirty publishers because of the you know the past failure of the second book I did it didn't look like it was going to happen, and then a John Wiley and sons agreed to publish this book because I got on the today show for the other the other book the first book I did and I had this great exposure even though the book. Didn't do I had some great exposure and turns out the the editor of John Wiley and sons saw me on TV at that time. So we said the proposal and sent the book and she read the book she's like I want to do this with John and agreed to do it. So that began this journey of now being published author. It was very random in some ways it was challenging all the rejections along the way we're we're difficult but all you need is one right one person early on to say yes up. and. That's what I was looking for, and that's thankfully what I got. Reminds me of the. You'll cut the work that look you get. Through your efforts of putting it out there, continuing to share your tips on a weekly basis, writing the book adding value and persisting even in the face of rejection after rejection what what is it? You learned about coming rejections through that process that you might be able to pass on because a lot of business leaders they look to expand their business you'll discouraged many times. Yes being a small business owner. That's that's my background. That's where my heart is and. Being from there I know that we don't give up. It's hard. We give up because we get discouraged and so it's important. Really stay encouraged to believe that the best is yet to come Duke University did a study and they found it optimus worked harder got paid more and were more likely to succeed in business and sports, and what they found was that because the optimist believed in a brighter future, they then took the ashes necessary to create it. It became a self fulfilling prophecy and it shows the POW belief, the power of our mind that if we believe it. We will then continually work to achieve it. WE WON'T GIVE UP WE WON'T get discouraged as a small business. You're going to face rejection adversity challenges and setbacks, and you have to have a vision of what you want to build. You have to have a design that will create your masterpiece, and then you have to build it one day to time knowing that adversity is going to be part of the process. But then through the optimism, sue belief one would at a time one success at a time you gradually build it anything that is worthwhile to build. We'll we'll take. Challenges and obstacles as part of that process. So we have to make sure that we we go through that journey to to build what we're here to build and create what we here to create, and it's just part of the path to create a successful business. It's part of the path to be a successful author. Everyone looks at success and they think it's easy. But that's not how it works I talk a lot about the power positive leadership and I can't tell you how many examples of of gray leaders came about because they were willing to overcome their challenges. They stayed positive through their adversity and they just kept moving forward others gave up but they. Didn't Alan Mullaly when he took over four yes it's not a small business, but but they were losing fourteen billion dollars and he had them profitable in a few short years. It was one of the greatest leadership feats in history and it happened because he really just stayed positive himself as a leader and stayed optimistic while others giving up while others were were saying that you know the world was was keeping in the world was coming to an end. He believes you the great recession that they were doing the right things that they had a plan and they just had to continually work towards the plan and it would work out and sure enough it did. In. Your book the Power Positive Leadership Quote Michael Phelps who spoke about his team in the two thousand Sixteen Olympics in Rio and I'm going to quote from the book where US put him saying every now and then you hear a bunch of negative comments or somebody complaining and during training camp one of the meetings I said to one of the guys that were getting ready for the Olympics. This is what we have to do. There are if there is a negative comment, keep it yourself the more positively we have as a team the better off we're going to be as soon. I said that we all became closer and then we really started getting things going. You identified that I'm signed that signal John as sending that direction as a leader to a team and saying, we've got to be positive. That's something that is tough for a lot of leaders to be able to get that clear. What else do you attribute to how Michael Phelps laid that out to his team as being really significant that other leaders can learn. To feed ourselves with positivity so that we can feed others. So it starts with US I as leader because you are contagious. Every day leadership is a transfer belief and passion and energy. So you're transferring your energy your belief day to your team. So it starts with you and then you have to make sure that you're sharing that with your team and one of the biggest mistakes that leaders make is they do not address the negative. That exists on our team. So the persists it exists and winds up eventually sabotage and the team. So by bringing this to the forefront by addressing, he was saying we're not gonNA allow negatively to sabotage our team. We here to do something great where here on a mission, we have a vision and we're not allowed negatively to sabotage it and I think you know and I know in so many people listening know that in business and also a life we allow negatively too often to sabotage the work that we do in our training we do a lot of training for positive leaders around the country I have people raise their hand and if you've ever allowed negative to. Sabotage your team if you've ever been part of a team where negatively sabotage and sure enough everyone raises their hands. So we have to make sure that we're dealing with an upfront. It's one of the key principles of of our program and our foundation of the work that we do is to say, okay, we're gonNA feed the positive, but we're gonNA weed the negative negative so it can process. So it can grow and when you do that, you quitted environment, we know everyone could do their best work as a leader. When you're building your business, you need to create an environment where you're people come in and give their best and be their best to the business and. To. Hopefully, a great outcome being in the restaurant business right I learned every day that I had to walk in with a positive attitude when I first opened second mortgage, our home twenty, thousand credit cards didn't know if the place was going to make it we didn't have much backup money, which was not a very good idea not a good business plan, but we just went for on a leap and a prayer somehow someway we were breaking even and I knew that every data show up and expect that people are going to come in and build our business and over time we did my wife and we catered the movie fear we we I mean so we flyer. The movie theater, we fired local business. You're just trying to do whatever it took to build our business. We eventually made that store. It was actually a MOS southwest grill franchise. We turned that into the top Mos- in the country over time, and it was you optimism and belief but I want people to know that I'm not naturally positive. I actually go more towards the negative. So I've had to work really hard at being a more positive person, but that's how I know it works. That's why I love doing this work why I'm passionate and it's why I love helping business leaders become more positive than selves so they can make a greater impact on the people around them. John, could against you a question about? Looking at the negative in cultivating the positive in a small business. What are some steps were levels that people could look at her leading company and saying you know I've got a couple of people on the team who are either neutral or negatives and they need to change because it's affecting the team you can't just toss people off the team are fired them because they make comments or complaints if there's a little bit of training that you have to do to offer them the chance to change how do you look at that process and what are some tips or guidelines that you've found useful in helping? The freezing, your book, the Energy Vampires headed. Transform or send them back to Transylvania. I'm so glad that you said it like that because you don't want to just try to remove them. You don't want say, Hey, you're being negative. You're Outta here. We don't WANNA walk in and say you're either on my bus off my boss I've had so many leaders read the energy bus and just take the liberty of just saying that to their team when they. Haven't done the work to build the relationships with their team. So it really starts at the cultural level where you have to say, okay, this is the kind of culture we're going to build. This is what we value is the importance of positivity now pollyanna positive, but just staying positive to be a great team in a great organization I wrote the power of a positive. Team as well. You share these principles you might even have the teen do a read together. I've had a lot of leaders and a lot of teams read the power positive leadership together in the power of a positive team together trying to be self promotional but I know that that's it's work like they read it. They're all thinking the same thing now and then you. Get them talking about these important principles values, and then that Oh it's easier to address it because now the vampires negative people start to self identify they start to see maybe they're being they start to see that another you bring it to the light, right it's a little uncomfortable at first, but you bring into the light. Then as pointers process, you really work on engage in. One on with the people that you're leading. So you start meeting one on one with your team members and you start talking about these principles you start talking about the vision you saw talking about how you can help them and lead them better. What do they need from you? Right? You communicate connect you commit you care the four cs that we talk about the book communicate, connect, commit, and care. And you really invest in that and as you develop these relationships, you then earned the right to start perhaps challenging them to say I needed to be able to more positive were let's talk about what you're going through. Maybe you're doing some personal issues of why you might be a little more or this is how people receiving what you're saying. You don't want a bunch of, yes people you don't. Ever want you don't. Want. Perfect. Positively you want some disagreements. You have to have some fights. Great Teams in small businesses have a ratio of. Three to one positive to negative interactions or greater. If you get to thirteen the one thirteen positive to one negative, the team falls apart was no one's dealing with the real issues you have to have the difficult conversations, but in order to do so you gotta develop these relationships one on one that allow you to have those conversations, and if someone's really being negative, they're not open to having a conversation and not opened the connecting the not willing to do what the team needs their sabotage, the team, what that point. Then you have to let them off the bus but given them every chance to get on and I found this as a formula that works and I gotTa Tell you whenever I go work with an organization some do get off the bus somewhere let off the bus, but always makes the team better because it needs to happen. But let's create the framework and West creed process first so that we're not just walk in and you're gone, you're gone you're gone because a lot of people have turned around and I've seen a lot a great success stories I had a a small business where she was this one was a manager I can't say her name we we always keep things confidence. But she was a manager and she had a very negative person. Well, we have an exercise called encouragement to an energy vampire and she wrote a letter encouragement to her energy that pyre. Now, the energy of Empire doesn't know that she thinks she's energy damn fire all she knows she has his letter encouragement and then she followed up to meet with her energy vampire. It was supposed to be a thirty minute meeting after you know sharing the letter. Lasted an hour and a half that amazing conversation. She found out that that this person was negative because she was deal with a lot of personal stuff. They became very close after that completely transformed the energy vampire to a positive person and transformed the managers leadership style now as a leader. So it's incredible what we do, what happens when we take the time to invest in these relationships? John I, love that story I also think that underlying it also believe in letting adults be adults and take responsibility really fully own have the opportunity to own their life, and if they choose not to own some part of it, then that's their choice. Would you agree with that very much show positive. We were the love and accountability you have to love him up as Alan Mullaly told me but you gotta hold them accountable to the standards, the values, the culture, and the principles that you're. Building your came in your organization with. So as a small business you come in and you build your culture, you Bill Your Business Franken Bouza has a hair salon in in Tennessee knoxville Tennessee it competes on a national level with those from new. York, it's not popular it's not successful. He is built a culture in an environment where this is how we do things here. There's a lot of love, but there's also the accountability of if you're at striving to be your best if you're not. Bringing excellence every day. If you're not treating your customers like family, then you're not going to be fit here and that is what really drives their great success. unloved that perspective John Are you ready for the Mike Western best lightning round I'm ready, I'm I've been with have been waiting for it. Since the beginning. So. What would you say? Is are one or two components of your your morning preparation your morning routine to have undoing consistent success in your life running your business. The one thing that I started when I was a small business owner was to take a walk of of gratitude I called it a thank you walk. So every day I would just say what I'm thankful for it because the research shows you can't be stressed and thankful at the same time. So if you feel ungrateful, you won't be stressed and stresses what drains us. Stresses what slowly kills US so everyday, you're creating a fertile mind and a fertile heart that's ready for great things to happen because the research shows you're flooding your brain and your body with these positive emotions that uplift you rather than the stress hormones that's only draining kill you. So by doing this every day, you're now setting yourself up for success and that has been. May I would go into the restaurant I remember and I would be you know I'll be able to worry bill concern but this thank you walk me in the right frame of mind was ready to take on the day and then I would often say I expect great things to happen. Today I expect all the people that want to work with me and my business I accept all the success that I'm here for in the future and sure enough over time and more things would happen. So I was really putting out like that great things we're GONNA. Happen. John, what would you say is the lease easiest or at least expensive change you've made in your personal professional life in the last six months. That's had the biggest payoff. The easiest and the less the least expensive. I'm looking for something easy. You've done that had a surprisingly big payoff in your well. It's not surprising but definitely a gotten back to working out and just by working out every day by walking every day running a little bit playing some basketball and then lifting weights again, I feel so much better show much stronger. I'm forty eight now and I feel like, I'm thirty I feel so much like just more fit and ready to take on the challenges when. You are a business owner. You GotTa realize that you've got to train yourself like an athlete because you're facing stress and challenges and long days that you don't recover eventually, it's going to wear you down. So you to build your body up, get a bill your mind because the exercise also creates a healthy mind it reduces depression and just by doing that, you will be more fit for both one physical activity but also the emotional wear and tear of business. I couldn't agree more with that I. think that's terrific that you've embraced that and it's funny how many people say, yes, important exercise and don't realize what a difference it makes when you actually follow through walk the walk and they also don't make the time or take the time. So they know they want to do it but they feel like they have so much going on that. They have so much work to do that. They can't do it. But here's the thing if you focus on exercise and you may get a party that will give you more energy to accomplish more things actually in less time. Here here, one last question I'm for the lightning round what's the most important habit or routine or belief that you've stopped in the last year that's brought you the most pleasure personal satisfaction. That I've stopped, you know, yeah, something you've taken away well. I actually. Live, in such a way that I don't really have many vices, I don't drink. I don't smoke I, exercise I, develop some food allergies you know years ago. So I really can only eat seafood and and and and vegetables and Organic root vegetables. Live like a monk in many in many ways. So I feel taking away things my entire life over the actually the last ten, twelve years. So it's made me very disciplined but I guess on on the other side, it's probably more. Technology being distracter, and so what realizes what I'm writing a book if I get on technology and I get on social media before I start writing I cannot right I'm done so I guess the one habit I've done is where I will make sure I write first and then check my email and then check my social media but I'll make sure I write I. Don't I won't be able to write anything. So for me, that's been a big productivity boosts. And that's a great sequencing observation. I would offer you that maybe one of the things that you've given up. Is the belief that you need to have a lot of these other so-called vices to have a happy and satisfying life. It sounds like you're doing. And you're doing it a very disciplined way. I would agree with that. My wife would say that I may live a boring life but I'm not boring. What is it that in your experience as you go to these different conferences and you're speaking to associations and working with business leaders to help them really understand power of positive leadership had a manage their energy in headed manage their teams for greater effectiveness. What would you say is one of the biggest misconceptions that small business leaders hats. The big misconception they have is actually about positively I. Mean I think I'm. A mission to share the importance of that. But if you look at like clemson football and Davos Sweeney, I've worked with them for eight years. Now, Dabo Sweeney is positive leadership has transformed that team organization they think positively is soft. That's a misconception they think that it's just a nice thing. They don't realize it's the most important thing to lead your team and to get results I've worked with Scott mcvay of the rams. He took over to go over that team and as had used success but to the super bowl last year as a result of his positive leadership, Donna order turnaround, the WNBA her positive leadership we. Have seen again I give you What were the LA dodgers? A three years Dave, Roberts they've been of the world series twice his positive leadership work at the Miami Heat Erik Spoelstra his leadership I can go on and on with the team that I worked with Corey Close Ucla Women's basketball. And I have seen with sports and business that you will see results when you bring forth that positive leadership to your team into your organization can't say how many sales managers an approach me and tell me how they became more positive with their team. They started communicate better the started greater credit greater connection and they just do a few things and sure enough it produce amazing results. So I think we believe that. It has to be hard. We believe it has to be complicated in. We don't realize the importance of positivity and yes, I'm biased but but I'm biased and the reason why I know this is something I'm spending the rest of my life doing because I know the impact it has I, know it's important and I know that it will help people build better businesses if they could actually implement these principles in their business. John Not only. Do I love your mission? I love the enthusiasm, your brain to. Speaking about these ideas bring into life and helping small business leaders. who running businesses as well as a teams. In athletics as well. As. In business. Ring, these ideas implement them to gain better results I really really appreciate the work that you do I wanNA. Thank you so much for the country.

The most southwest real to helping US understand about the Duke University study about help people who have more positively. Work Harder in achieved more. Understanding that it requires the vision but also talking yourselves and treating that environment responsible freshly giving ourselves the positively feeding ourselves that which we need because it doesn't exist by random in the environment we gotta make that choice reminding us that leaders one of the responsibilities transferred the beliefs passion and energy to everyone on the team because it happens all the time anyway, and it's necessary in order to make it a the kind of culture that you want within your organization. Love. The I'd give the vintage of empires and always reminding people to feed the positive and the negative. John for so many reasons such as these.

Thank you mother. I was going to have a second me so as a kid. It was really hyper and I suppose growing up in a large family like I did. You'd need energy like gave me to be able to stand out and get attention because you perform in in your family unit to try to stand out and get your among a. That's what I did as a kid not realizing it I mean music was my thing I took to music and mimicking the radio. It was a natural thing for me. Just trying to sound like what I heard trying to mimic it and I got better as I got older. And when not to Vegas about nineteen years ago and I Zarghami Danny Gans Lake de again and I said wow it was like God sent me there. I said that guy is doing what I've been doing naturally So once once I realized he paved the road and I realize I put it in his show. Make money and you unique. I came back to Boston. And that's just what I did and Joey voices no not only in the New England area but but across the country all over the place. You're living that childhood dream. Yes but you know I I the idea of doing You know impersonation the nation or or characters is one thing but then being able to sing as these wonderful characters out started out so mute talk about the music first of all were you trained. Does your vocal. I never took singing lessons until two thousand two thousand and one thousand two. My my good friend is Gary Sharon from The lead singer for extreme. Yes more than words that scares troy. Hudson mess you know modernists all Shari's from Malda Mouse. There were some from Hudson. I know that because my late wife used to teach there and there was okay. Delay with anyway doesn't matter okay. So so I grew up next door to his mother was my gym teacher at the High School. While my has now was a world a war two vet. He was mulling guy the whole family. I used to cut through their backyard. You get amorous park so I grew up with Gary and his brothers guys a little older than me but I ran Kinda Gary on Newbury Street one day and I told he was house the voice he says I know you start not create Hajjah voice and I says you know it's it's good to go. It's it can get a little tired sometimes as you call my friend mock BACKSTA. He's my vocal coach. And he's Steven Tyler's vocal coach and he's vocal coach trains. The cast of rent rent whole bunch of other famous people get studios in Boston. LA IN NEW YORK. I called Mike back on the voice mail. Twenty minutes eight eight calls me back. Listen come into my on Tuesday and we'll we'll get you started From there on out my voice gets stronger and stronger. Did you learn breath. Control taught me breathing exercises how to preserve my voice hot to warm up my voice make it stronger. And if it wasn't for Mike Baxter and Gary Sharon Evans who you know right. Sure and if it wasn't for those guys in in Gash round centimeter Mark Baxter. I don't know if I'd still be doing what I'm doing today. You do have to have for the kind of work you do an amazing ear. You've got to be able to hear something and then pick it apart to know how to take it and put it back together again. So what was the first great impression of yours when you were a young. What was what was the Michael Jackson? You easiest one though I mean I haven't done a long time but I can do it a little bit. She's on a Malay- you've you've gotta live down on the women who don't know where the that's very good. Yeah hiree high range. When I was a kid I could hit the high notes? Now is an adult. It's it's harder but still do a little bit like she's on live so I can do that much but when it goes to the high notes. It's a lot harder so it's interesting I followed your career and I've seen you in action and you literally have dozens dozens if not hundreds of of voices out there. Is that problem though. Somebody says hey this guy says he does a thousand voices. Can you do Joe Schmo that nobody ever I heard I mean D- do people challenge you other words. Sure they do even Danny Gans said I don't do everybody's voice. I'm going to a lot of people's voices but everybody's voice so sometimes people say. Can you do this chances. I you know I might be able to but then again maybe not. You've tried some. That are just really out of your ball. BALLPARK audie arrange Louis. Armstrong was very hard to get. My eyes would water and had to just practice it a thousand times until like voice was comfortable with it and it was like Hello Dolly. This is Louise's uh-huh so denies you back where you belong Oria. Well people should obviously know that they probably know this in any way. But you're doing the voice the body the whole bit and you become the character absolutely right and you have to run danger but I got to get the face until you know respect I tell you no respect at all. I'll tell you my wife and I. We were happy for twenty years younger than we met when we walked in together And settle. Oh you immediately showed me your Deniro which is spot on. And it's the face the Deniro higher. Yo you know. Assent his Robert Deniro by an ice cream from Louis. H Cream in okay Louis Louis but what am I scream Louis. I'm gonNA break your legs. I will break your legs. A will put them back together. I will break them again. You M E NA always welcome you with the Italian Nice Nice. I really like the Canon Ball. You know why that goes little bitty gum balls at the bottom little bed. Thank you thank you. First of all your man of the cloth almost and you're also many gods who you didn't use the typical Deniro invectives so ten. Swear my but here's the thing you told me and I want you to share with the audience a little inside baseball tip about how you developed the Deniro. It was through a friend of ours hours both yours and mine Dave Rousseau and other great commentator Rousseau I call him I dubbed him this the hardest working guy show business because he is. He's all over the place places to win everything he can't always make a buck and to make people laugh days. One of my best friends were kids. Unfortunately my show in his show is kind of when he does stand up acts. He can't really in Komi. Because Mine's like a Vegas Act where it's mostly musical doesn't really fit with his kind of all standup thing. But when I do a sure I can have him come in and have him open my act. What kind of works I am but a lot tougher for him to to pull off bringing me on book but he taught me how to do the Robert Deniro and I. He knew that I had it and he goes. I'm GONNA teach you how to nail it and somebody taught him Bubka troll tied Ham Bubka troves troves comic and he taught him another modern guy. I've got guys. Hey tell you so. So Dave says I want you to muffed the word meant so I made the Deniro face and is meant intimate meant but don't say it just melted and that was very simple. I've I've Interviewed many. Who Do what you do over the years and I've always dabbled in character voices? It's so much fun but it's it's getting that little gesture or that little little thing and and hyping it up a little bit exaggerating it just enough so that people recognized that. Yeah is that a is that the secret that I'm hitting the secret there is that that's tip. You know a lot of times and I learned over the years that it's it's a lot easier to learn how to do an impression of somebody watching somebody else do an impression of them. Yeah and then I an mocking what they do. It's a lot easier not that it's you know it's it's not an easy thing to do certain voices but if you watch somebody else do it and how they do auto times. It'll click right. You do Joe Pesci and you knell Joe Pesci taste and season. The new. How you doing joining us? She's Joe Patchy she said. I heard you think I'm funny. I'm funny how. What do you mean flight like? I'm Clowney Muzio. I'm it'll musial. Listen I may when my friend Joey Voices. I'm inside his head. I live of here. I make pasta feed him every day. I feed 'em meatballs. I'm is nourishment. Don't you ever forget it. I'm the only meeting. Joey voice is out here today. I'm the only he's any. That's my money Mac. Spot on spot on so much fun talking with Joey Voices Joey noon as his Is born name. And he's become become known all over this region and beyond for just being in a dynamic performer at before we get to the book. Because I want to spend some time with you on that The range range of voices. You do African American performers you ladies Algorithm Algorithm. Okay Al Green the Reverend Fellow Reverend Al Green. And I'm so being. Oh vinny you what ever you. There is all rowing meany cause you make me feel so ran. News News a little bit of cracking avoids favorites. Fun Isn't it and your reaction from people because it's what they know. There's no you're with it so it's such a cool thing. Steve Sweeney always Steve Sweeney. Everyone knows Steve Sweeney comedian actor. His movie and his new movie. Just came out sweeney killing Sweeney. If you haven't seen it go see it's a great movie. He called me up about six months ago. My it's a Steve Sweeney. Take what's going on brother. He goes eight showing esteem. Sweeney I'm on my way to see Michael McDonald. He says yes. My favorite impression on Mike McDonald that you do. He goes do Mike at McDonald's voice me while I'm on my way to the concert so he's driving on the way to the concert and I might call you don't know I am It's music to my ears. He goes that's all I wanted to hear because they thought to Click. You don't even say goodbye. You just click. That's beautiful one of the funny moments in my career. St Sweeney calling me on his way to a Mike at McDonalds now. Here's here's a question. One more show Biz question before we move onto onto the book. And that is you're based here. You're never left the area. You're part of our our D. N. A. S. but is that at all a hindrance to going further in other words. If you lived in Vegas if you were on the west coast what would that mean if anything Erika Question years ago I got a phone call from agent in Vegas wanted to sign me. I read the contract and I understood that they basically want to blood. They want to do all the performance they make most of the money I news. WHO's a foot in the door? I could've taken advantage of that gone out there and I waited after the year of so whatever the contract an Kinda while I was out you got something better. I didn't really WANNA put my life and I had started seminary Beck and oh one and I quit and I wanted to start and finish what I started and I was always in bothering me that I quit so I started seminary. I chose to go to seminary instead of going to Vegas. I figure God bless me down the road again break somewhere. I'm with on the road. I'll just make money performing. Make people laugh putting smiles on people's hearts and I'll get my education in seminary and see with the leads me. I went to seminary about halfway through seminary. I realized that it wasn't my calling because I would have to give up performing but it didn't want to quit again so I finished follow turnout turn and went. Seven years. Got My master's in theology. Graduating in fourteen went through some personal things. I didn't go for my doctorate but it was kind of gopher my doctor. I figured get my doctorate. I've got to preach. Maybe I'll open up a shrink practice and people who have voices can come see the voice but that didn't really work but I got my masters justice and and now I ended up writing books which I never dreamed in a million years. I'd do you have written five books. This is the first one finally released the second and third WANNA. It'll be out this year inevitable much K.. The book is the book is called. Good things are supposed to happen to you now. Prior to this discovery in your life of of the important things in life. Were you ever of the mind that good things weren't happening to you know they. I always you leave that. They were supposed to me but I knew that a lot of people out there or not because I realized that a lot of people have a really negative mindset because when one bad thing happens to them they just start thinking negatively and by doing that they're feeding more negative things to them and as they start doing that create a state of being and the longer that state of being goes eventually becomes a personality trait and makes a much harder to change so you thoughts create your feelings. You combine thoughts and feelings create state of being Dr Georgia spins leading neuroscientists up there. He held himself from paralysis before he. Ah Paralysed. He was one of the leading teachers in spontaneous. Hailing ninety coincidentally had data bike accident during a triathlon paralyzed. And he said well. Now's the best time to practice what I've been teaching. He healed himself. Yeah the power of the mind and the the body and the soul connection is incomparable. Herbert Benson proved at Harvard You know and there's so many other great studies science and and and Mystery have combined to bring us a more exciting life. Well nerve cell nerve cells that fire together wire together so the longer you can stay on a thought without breaking concentration along those nerve cells are going to grow and next thing you know they growing when they connect that's a new memory connection and now that's second become second nature and does it make you imagine. I know the answer to this but I'll ask anyway. Does that make you a better performer. onstage sure logically subconsciously. I'm sure that it does. I don't really consciously think about it. It's just something that I've been doing over the years whenever I find something that I love a new impression that you do it until I get it and how how important is is it obviously for for anybody to be successful in show business. How important is it to have this part of their life holding up the book? The the part that really matters matters the part that you know is inside. HOW IMPORTANT IS AT D? Think for those performers out there to have that inner motor running right right. They have to know who they are and what they stand for before they make it big in in the industry. Because if you don't know what you stand for you'll fall everything everything in this life There's too many people that become big time famous movie stars and and performers and they don't know what they stand for what they believe a with life purposes. There's gotta gotTa be more to your life purpose than just going to work and making money and entertaining see. It's got to be value. And this is my way of adding value to the world world on top of putting smiles and people's hearts on my father taught me you can't put a price tag on putting the smile. Somebody's heart my father. That's your gift use. It and I said Okay Dan. That's that saying he was now right now. Your father sounds like a hot ticket must have been great recipes. You'll lawyer it was a trial attorney for thirty years and Middlesex County. That's amazing trial. I say amazing because I I'm very familiar with the area. Maldon Everett Melrose that whole area. It's kind of like Brooklyn. There are a lot of very smart creative funny people who've come out of that area for some reason we feed each other feed off each other and it's energy energy signature Introduces you before you ever open your mouth. Yeah so yeah. Energy savings just created by thoughts which creates your feelings combined. It's a very powerful thank. Let's talk about how people can get a copy of your new book which is called. Good things we're supposed to happen you by Joey noon and Oh oh any is available now yes you can get an Amazon perfect order signed copy you can get it at joy dot com and when I record the audio book you'll get A. I'll send you a free audio book if the website I sent all tourism is it to you terrific terrific F so getting back to what you do on stage. Are you constantly looking for new material. New People to have fun with well. I got so much stuff stuff that I utilize what I have and then I'll switch things around. I'll take things all up put new things in. I try to add one or two things every year but the nucle- The show is very powerful and it's a musical act you know so it's almost like people. Let's say you WANNA go see Barry. Manilow will you love Barry. manilow songs. Paramedics could come out with new stuff all the time. But when you're GONNA see Berry mental you want to hear. The songs with the hits hits so my stuff I bring. I bring the heads of all these artists when when they come to the show. I'll add new things in but I bring the heads every time people see me so it's not like going to a comedy act. We don't WanNA hand new jokes. Ray Charles I I. I met him Years ago and what a thrill that was and he was one of the most ECLECTIC and electric performance of all time. If a guy or Ray Charles is fabulous wtma thank you thank you.

It's such a treat to have you with me behind the microphone. Because it's it's you and all of that creative stuff flowing around in that beautiful head of your stuff just comes to me. I'm GonNa give you an example. Something that came to me and I didn't even realize that I had written the joke. It just happened happened some during a commercial appreciation restaurant. We both know that restaurant right. It's a lovely restaurant in the Maldon area. Yeah three St Martin and I'm doing a commercial for them and it's me with all my friends all the voices raining so I had this thing. Where do Robert Deniro Nicole? I said the fried ice cream will tickle your tonsils. Now the fried ice creams a big dish. Desert the fried ice cream ticket your tonsils and so I feel one is L. Pacino. We'd Ice Cream Ernie given Sunday well on Sunday Sunday. Like yeah I get it. I didn't realize I'd written joke. I was just throwing that in there because I didn't realize it was Sunday Sunday. I didn't get it. I'm like why it's funny that I thought it would be. I just kind of threw that punch line. See that's my kind of humor that's the Pun. which is the lowest form? Yeah but my mind Some people love ponds the lowest form you want. I I loved I loved it puts the lowest form of humor. Because it's simple it's simple that's what brilliance lies exactly so it's And then the Al Pacino comes in and goes you've got to fight for every scoop elegant every given Sunday 'cause you gotta fight for every inch and a fight for every scoop and a kind of combined him. In any given Sunday with Colonel Frank Slade and why not. Why not just some some of these people that you do though are because they're performers and sort of larger than life? They are easy to do. I mean some people seem to be very like for instance in the old days as you'd watch John Byner or obviously rich little and people like that and they would go after You know John Wayne Jack Benny See. Do All all those things and you do. A good Jimmy Stewart. WHO still go ahead? Now wait just a minute on. My name is Jimmy Stewart. Lord say a few words Jordan rich pod cashed a wonderful part. Gosh here's the question for. We're here before we wrap up. Do you find that. Occasionally you're doing a show and you're killing and all of a sudden you're doing a particular personality and the younger people in the audience. Look at you like you have three heads. WHO's that 'cause I've had I've mentioned names to people you know Humphrey Bogart? WHO's that it's weird? 'cause they in a way a lot of the younger generation. Their parents weren't really into that. They have parents might have been yeah but they might not followed in their parents like watching the old movies and stuff you know now but we're from that generation you know I'm the youngest of that generation. I'm forty seven. I grew up around. My parents are thirty five years older than me so I grew up listening to snatcher. And and and Bobby Darrin and all that stuff in Tony Banner. Hello everybody.

So anyway, I jumped up there. It's like I want to do this I wanNA. Be hypnotized. And see what it's all about and and. Next thing. The other nine people on their Steve are the same nine that I met that afternoon at lunch. And I'm Oh. What's up with this? Camera ding-dong. What's up with this? And before you can get the words out, Steve. All of them just collapsed. Their arms drapey down before he even gives it the what the routine is here that I'm going to do. I sorta. got. I guess I'm dropping my head. You know and I'm looking. Looking. Turn in my eyesight, whereas looking down the road and go well. Everyone else is out cold here, but it's not working for me. Snap my head back up and and he tried to okay, Jim, concentrate. When you hear the snap on my fingers, you know just ripping these snaps. Like a machine gun and I'm not I'm not buying it Stevie you know accent. And so, then he then they, they eliminate some people. Then they go. Okay, you're you're you're you go down? Go down. They'll end up with six people and he's. He tried something else with me. When you hear the Word Shepherd's Hook you know you're GONNA start you're gonNA, start to dance around Galardo right. nope, no, that ain't happening in. And then he went along, and he sort of whispered into a couple of years, and then he came up to me and he. Puts his mouth to my ear, whispering without the Mike Goes, give me a fucking break here. Can play along. Do it. Just. By, which okay well, that's the whole thing. That's why they so frequently. These guys these hypnosis guys. They always tackle the high schools and the colleges. There's a reason for that because that demographic. Because part of the deal is if it doesn't work on your. They often say go sit down or something like that and and I think that that demographic they think of exclusion as something worse than death right, and so there's such a tendency to play along if everybody else's playing along or if they're in your case totally. Rigged and chosen ahead of time. That's that's that's the reason it works. Because they really take advantage of of the younger mind well, I will say this so so later Stephen in Vegas and I'm looking at All the what shows Ron and fuck. This guy's got a show in Vegas now gave totally fry. Yeah, it was. In any event, you know I I read something about him. Because He hypnotized is has been around for a long like medical hypnosis. Right for people quitting smoking and getting through stress and trauma and all this stuff right it's. It is. It is known to work right. But on a stage in the thing I just like. I don't believe it. However I read a thing that saying if someone. Believes in hypnotism lights hypnotism. was interested in wants to be hypnotized BUBBA BUBBA BUBBA. You're going to get these people who will probably get hypnotized. You know if they're if they're if they really really believe in it, you know, and so I went to see show phoned him up, got some tickets and I will say this Steve so I'm GonNa. Okay the fixes in here. You'RE GONNA. Snap the fingers and all this stuff, but then when he does Steve Goes into this. Deal of okay, I need a volunteer and There's a couple in the front row, obviously on a date or something, and he he brings up the husband or the boyfriend, and he starts talking about the date and all this stuff, and then, and then he brings out this blow up doll Steve. And I'm going all right. This is this may not be bad here. What's going to happen here? And he immediately begins to ask the guy you know. This is this is. This is Belinda Belinda Gherardo. The ball knows her name, and if you're on a date with her, you know, how would you do? And Okay Steve. It becomes disgusting what this Guy Starts to do! It's fucking dull. It's like. Are you kidding me, you know so. I was started on. Even. If you're an actor, you know I. Guess You know you might, you might say okay. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do the dirtiest most disgusting thing ever with this fucking talk. I sort of rejuvenated my belief in hypnotism. Maybe this guy is really good. And the meantime the the. The woman. Is freaking out. She's like what the fuck. We've never done that. So anyway. I wish you were with me Steve. Be Good in Vegas to go down there. I'll take you around a few shows. Yeah now. Have you ever thought about hypnosis? Because you have a few vices, you have a few things. Like, smoking for example. Drugs Booth Yeah I've already. We've already conquered. Though is I was going to go down that road and I said. You know what you're only hypnosis for that, but you surely need it. Because I. Hear the clicking of Your bic lighter in what we do. A thirty to forty minute show daily I, probably hear your bic lighter go off about five times every single show, and then it's usually like. Click noise and then you always throw your your your back later down latest. Down here and every time. It's like Russ's white claw. You know when we do this bengals. I thought when you asked me about him. Intimacy, you thought maybe I should be able to hypnotize people. I thought I thought I had that power. No I don't I. Don't think that. I haven't thought about it till now. Because, they do do it for quitting smoking. I've heard you know the the ones we have recordings. You can listen to at night and the whole subliminal thing I don't know if that qualifies as Hypnosis, but that kind of thing I. Certainly the smoker I'd I'd be doing. I'd be trying stuff like that. Well and the thing about trying to quit smoking. and. Is. There's there's no downside as the costume so. There's no downside and you gotta keep trying. Yeah, okay, it's not one of these things. Where okay! I'M GONNA I'M GONNA I'M GONNA. Try Out for the hockey team. I'm seventeen and if you're no good. You'RE GONNA get, cut. And then if some says got try again next year, and maybe it worse or no better. And eventually. Someone's going to say okay. We got gotta move along from the hockey thing. But with quitting smoking, that's not the case. Keep trying. Keep trying so. I might try. I do love the way your lungs protested in a moment ago and the topic came up or celebrated either way they wanted to make themselves heard. That's right. That's right. GonNa. Think about that. A little. Now yesterday's show was good lively. We're talking about a number of things. I think. We were on different pages. When it came to what was going on, with all of these riots, slash protests mostly in the United States over the death of George Floyd, and it's not just about George Floyd it's that was straw that broke the camel's back stuff. It's about in general civil rights and. And this was the latest thing, but it's it's obviously you know decades and decades of frustration and anger and sadness. And unfairness that has been kind of welling up and this just sort of was the boiling point and lots of people took to twitter. On Tuesday of this week blackout Tuesday, they were calling it and you know they were. There are making these really positive statements about civil rights, and they're putting all these black images on their social media feeds like just a plain black square would be their photo, accompanying this or that and you felt like that was not not not enough. You need to take action. And I don't disagree with that I was more in the mode of you know. Celebrate what is happening in that people are talking out against it, which is something that prevent for many people they've never done before, and as with the mental health. Thing you know the Bell, let's Talk Day I think that's a positive thing talking about it just to let people know that they are supported, and there are people, and not only that as one person says it that might influence ten other people as well and so on and so forth, but you're right. Action speaks louder than words and today almost on cue. There's a whole bunch of athletes who've taken action on this whole thing. PK Sue ban. PK Sue Ben donated fifty thousand dollars directly to George. Floyd's daughter and the NHL matched it another fifty thousand dollars and go fund me page as well for her, and so people are. Donating in droves there, so that's a real specific cause to help the daughter of the guy who who basically started this with his inexcusable murder. Every murder is I guess inexcusable. It's a bit redundant, but this one in particular just like. You. Watch it on video, and you destroys you crazy so furious DAK Prescott Dallas Cowboys quarterback. He's donated a million dollars for police training education on systemic racism new balance sneakers. They've announced they're going to donate. Ten thousand pairs of running shoes to black community based programs in Atlanta in Ahmad armories name. He's the guy that was killed by the Father Son twits. As the guy was jogging. For no good reason so. Nice to see at least we're starting to see that level of action. You were looking for the other day. Yeah, totally, totally, I'm impressed. Man I'm impressed. You know the mental health thing right? Was You know where people talked about this awareness of mental health where it really kicked into the highest gear Steve is when. Celebrities. Came forward and said okay. I suffer from mental illness. I'm inflicted with this thing. And then that was very eye-opening right when people stood forward came up or stood up and came forward and said yes. I'm mentally ill. You know I got I got depression, and and that thing became wildly powerful. I thought when when someone admitted. That they did that and You, know some of the metoo movement of course when when women started to come forward. And saying I got abused. Got Harassed in the workplace. then. Those things really really get wrapped up. And you know what there's. Racism and stuff. This is fantastic what these people are doing and and certainly it's GonNa. Make someone look forward. Look look ahead in their life or even look back, and and with this I expect one day that someone's going to come forward and say I was a racist. You know I was I was I. Get what you're talking about here and. I've always said you know that. What's the intention of this? Know that? What are you doing? What are you saying? What did you mean by that? What your intention and I think from this stuff when it gets to the states that people doing that that there's GonNa. Be People come forward and say. Know what I need to be educated. Because I haven't. I haven't stood my ground that will. Be With my children with with talking about it and stuff like that. So what a start! It's great and I think all this dialogue is excellent as a talked about in the last episode, but there's also a I guess a small part of me. As someone. Again I really WANNA. Make it clear that I'm glad all this dialogue is happening. This is an important discussion to be having, but there's also a small part of me. That's going. Well Isn't treating everybody the same pretty damned? Obvious thing for you know for someone to do like I, just personally speaking I feel like. It's like Kay. I WANNA I WANNA put out this statement that I. Think it's wrong to hit people over the head with a hammer like well. Isn't that obvious? Isn't treating everybody equally and being respectful and kind everybody's kind of obvious like I. Come from it from a place like the mental health thing, right? Everybody's saying it's okay to not be okay. I'm like well, of course it is. As. That head space getting. I've got a son who's autistic and I kind of kind of celebrate the difference and I guess I am in this mode of like this is important, really important conversation to have, but again there's a small part of me. That's going. Know. This should be people going the whole world should be going. This is obvious stuff. We all should be doing this and it's just. It makes me a little sad that this isn't treated as something. That's painfully obvious and that we're not all doing this by Osmar versus as. Respectful human beings I guess it's basically to comment on on the state of humanity. that. They need to hear this and so it's a positive for sure, but it also makes me sad that the. State of humanity is what it is well I think what you just said I. think brings up the whole crux of the problem. What you just said and. The reason the reason, the outpouring of emotion I, think and these protests and that Goto this. Terrible terrible level right of rioting. Violence is because. Everyone looks at Steve Iq and go. Oh my God. It's the most obvious thing in the world. That you shouldn't be doing. Right it really is. It really is come on. He's been around long enough. There has been left talk about this over the years that that you know it's obvious that you shouldn't judge someone on their skin color and I think that's why that that this thing is at this level. It is Oh, my God. How are people missing this point? You know you know what I mean so when you bring up the sing, it is, it is so obvious and when you read a lot of it looks it looks like a bunch of platitudes of okay don't do that. It's harmful like you say well. Thanks, thanks I understand that Geno. I understand that and I. think that's why there's the outrage. It's. A little different than. Your opinion on who you should. Who should vote for and maybe that party has you know people are really upset about what some their policies are, but but you know I can agree with some of that. Shit is an obvious right. It's not obvious to a bunch of people. But some stuff is, but this thing is blatantly clearly one hundred percent obvious to all people that it shouldn't be happening so when it does I. Mean It. It just makes people. Stand back and go. You've got to be kidding me. You know and and I think that's why I think that's. It is where it is right that Oh my God. I wake up June I. Twenty twenty. and. This thing happened this past week. You know. What do we have to do what you have to do? To tell other people to make it obvious Yup. And what's and that's why this is all positive? I hope I didn't come across as saying. It's anything positive. Because this is the state of humanity, not everybody has their shit together as a lot of people who have been taught to be awful. Human beings who don't have any understanding of how kind all in at the very least just keep walking, you know. Let's say you've just you know even if you've gone to like. Your parents were the most racist human beings. Your you grew up. You know getting all these racist like just isn't it? Isn't more work to go and be hateful and go and punch somebody in the face because of their skin color is. Is that more work than just just keep walking at the very least live and let live. For sure? For sure listen Steve. ICED I know people. I know. On more than one occasion. I've heard. What what we're good friends of mine, and then I began to step back a little bit going while while this is of weird, who have said to me I drive better when I've had a few drinks. With this. I'm going. Give me that one again. Give me that one again. Yeah, I'm a little more alert you know when I have three or four Ryan Cokes. driver. I'm going. Okay okay. Let's look at the stats. It's like. Just to your point. It's I'm just floored because to me. It's completely obvious now that impaired driving is harmful. Okay and imagine now when it come way going. The message that this kid here's his son or daughter. You know. And Come on! You gotta be what the what is wrong with that guy. What is wrong with that? You know for them to think of something that to me is so obvious. That's wrong. And by the way society does too, and it's against the law. And there's many examples of deaths and tragedy from you know, and you're going to go to jail and on and on, and it's like yeah. No I'm okay. I'm okay when I have a few drinks. I'm fine. Fine. I'm not. I'M NOT Steve. With you on the road. Covert right where where the people are talking about covert. You know I'm going okay. I've had enough I gotta get back and I'm going to go golfing. Today or I'm going to go. I'm going to go to a picnic. And you, so you. You say you're GonNa do that, right? We and and you may have people in your family go. No, no, no, you're not. You don't have the only choice here. Because what your actions are doing may affect me may affect me and you know I understand that, but people don't. They don't go that step further. Go wait a minute here you go. You're going to harm some people down the road here. But that's obvious to me, but but not to a bunch of people right now discovered ten more cases, Steve Yesterday, okay, and admit ten more cases from. A family that decided to have a reunion family reunion. Twenty of them got together. Ten of them got cove. And I'm saying crazy. What are they thinking? That's where I'm coming. Going you selfish prick and I'm my. where I found out about that person who's telling me I'm like where where what what part of town where where where where you know this is insane. Yeah, you wonder what level of setback because we are all ready being told by the medical officials that it's possible in this case the the second wave of covid might be worse than the first, and I was plenty bad enough, and then look at the same time as is important as these rallies marches, demonstration protests are like they're cramming a bunch of people together and I would hope that all the sacrifices. We've been making the last three months. Universally. Not just pockets of people or certain cultures like everybody in the planet has made a lot of sacrifices staying home, trying to stay sequestered trying to get this thing under control. Hopefully we don't. You know waste all of those sacrifices. By you know cramming everybody together, hopefully, everybody is as best they can keep their masks on keeping their distance, but based on everything. I've seen on TV. All these protests I think America in particular is in for a bad second wave. Yeah. Yeah, you know. I always compared to. When people have these strong opinions, lots and lots do right now lots do. I'm involved in in in a club here, right? This for recovery and we've had to cancel the meetings right? We have cats and saying no, we can't. People can't get together and have these. And I got groups who we who who who have meetings at this place and have come forward to mingle? When the fuck are you going to start up again? We WanNa have our meetings. And my answer is I. Don't know I don't know well. This is stupid. This is dumb. We want to be able to go in there and you know part of me is like. But you might infect someone. Okay, all know it'll be fine. will social distance will wipe the chairs down? We'll do all this stuff like well. How about this one? You might get infected. Yeah, you know I, won't you know no I won't I'll be fine. You know I've are okay and then I go like this. Okay well. Why don't you send your kids in there? Then I always go to that. You know think of if it was your own kids. Are, you gonNA. Let your kid go out to a party. You GonNa go down to Trinity Park in Toronto go to the Ozark Lake there that all are you gonNA. Let your kid go there. and. You wouldn't know it's the equivalent Steve of you. Get you get poison ivy. Okay? You run into a poison, Ivy plant and its breakout. And, it's all over your freaking skin right and it's very contagious, right? It's very contagious. If you rub up against someone poison ivy, you're you're done. You'RE NOT GONNA die at. Don't think but I got this thing. Go I'll be fine. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA go to this party and shake hands with everyone and dance Yup and and sit beside them only the pool and shit like that. It's to me. It's obvious Steve, but it's not. It's not I guess not obviously other people. Yeah, no, you're right. That's exactly the point I was trying to make to. It's like it just feels like a small part of me feels like, Oh my God. Do. We need to do this, but yes, obviously we do.

128: SENS FINAL CUTS: SABOURIN MAKING THE SENS IS AWESOME, JIM'S CFL GAMBLING LOSS IS ALSO AWESOME
"The Steve Worn Project Sports and whatever we want to end this preseason on a good note regular seasons a couple of days away strong showing US still a couple of guys that can use approval also I think it was a great effort all around able to six seconds left on the clock and it's third down Edmonton eight they call a time out what are we going to do around the clock I'm going Mrs good they're not trying to bomb of Oh wow yeah and maybe the one I didn't win Steve was a push it was just it was just insane insane I kept just paid the bookie off again few days ago and so I'm back bedding and so I'm sitting down yesterday it's tripleheader day in the everybody is I had a great run many many years ago and I want about nine thousand bucks betting on baseball and when I when I got some money on it I'm right into it screaming at the TV all that stuff so but I'm a loser man I am a loser when it comes to betty I have computing all insurance Ontario and Popeye's supplements and by the way if you're interested in helping keep our show rolling on a daily basis one way to help us through a Patriot membership gallon Yada Edmonton's got the ball they're managing the clock and they're up by seven points okay and there's into it so I bet on sports when I'm at home and I can watch the game I never bet on a game I can't watch just because I get bored watching the Game Ah kept doubling up house money right away of course and I was betting series and games and I was even betting against the my my series to get two over the course of the program it's been a couple of days since my co host Jim Jerome and I have spoken how're things James Now fucking pissed I and they don't want to give the ball up and the commentators are going well he's just going to take a snap runaround for 'cause they're about their out about Centerfield why why you pissed I bet on the vikings to know and so I like to bet on the Games stevie CFL three games back to back to back so I'm in and the first game I'm going to bet as well membership levels that cost less than a pint of beer once per month it's an amazing way to show support the show that we appreciate a lot Steve W project DOT COM Edmonton the red locks lost twenty one sixteen to Edmonton even though Trevor Harris didn't plays for the okay so I've got Ottawa plus seven they're not looking very good during the game bubble Blah and I'm thinking I I've lost my hundred here one ten with the juice and let's say they sort of hang in there and they come around now I'm looking at a push can I get that they'll get away with Rhonda here Yada I one and I still have it I'll put it on my twitter something a picture I want something like twenty one of twenty two bets in Pick I would bet the other team in some of the Games and when that would say it was just nuts but anyway that's the only story I've ever had it winning and somewhere up around there anyway and so he's going to run around or runaround for a bit and then drill a pass way down field or throw it out of bounds or something did they snapped the ball steve he turns around backwards and throws it fifty yards downfield the other way too of their players and he steps into the end zone and kneels to run the clock out and gives up two points. I lose the hon give the other guys a chance to have a run back in this was their way of handling it just interesting that is a definite born loser way ooh first of all first of all it's hilarious story about how can you know the born loser better how can this possibly go wrong okay so that's just run the clock hold Steve you sound like you're in great shape here I'm in good shape pal okay it's twenty one fourteen I'm going to get a push what else could possibly have lose a bet Oh my God hilarious totally so it's so funny anyway stop gambling nobody should gamble around pivots throws into this guy and he could've fallen Steve Outside of the end zone he could've you could've just fallen right of yard line and they actually went into their own end zone to finish out the game just to run the clock Oh yeah they got a guy way back there okay I don't even see it you know I don't Friday night game I won the Hamilton Winnipeg game so and then I lost the Vikings today I do a little bit honey what's really sort of weird is that why would you throw the ball anywhere down near your own end zone at all so there unlike they're like on the thirty five I chase the money I don't I said I'm not betting on the NFL because it's fifty thousand games and I don't bet on the NHL because there's just too many games and and I don't WanNa get hooked to put fifty or one half see notre seen on the Games and I'll tell you Larry Larry's story yesterday way down there at the end zone I assuming he's there because they may try some play downfield and that these there to cut the guy runs he's it's like that that kind of satisfies my need to gamble because I learned very early when I was sixteen years old Richmond Fair one of those stupid carney games it was like thing ever sure went back the next day lost it all plus another hundred and I said you know what I'm not I'm not a good gambler I'm I'm a little compulsive then Regina and it's a long ten days and I was a love gambling and there was a casino directly across the street from the front door my hotel terrible you might get in a run but you will eventually lose it all it's a fan the next I won the next two games okay stick with it then and I won the game and I won the yeah and but does the knee thing so no one's handling the ball against the theory is they didn't want to get into punting risk being picture six chrome Eros on a table and they spend them all around each one of them goes to a various kind of horse on the table and so on over there at sixteen years of age one Saturday night with four hundred fifty dollars and so all night long I'm thinking I'm going back tomorrow I this is the greatest ear and it's always stacked against you so I never bother with it anymore I went to Regina to do a Gig the brier yes and I'm betting a few numbers BUBBA and now I start to go bad okay I should be at home in bed in my hotel room sleeping doing whatever ascended that Steve I'm going to try my hand at Roulette that night and these are Blurry Day Steve I'm fucking hammered and horrible story of gambling right and and of course I learnt my lesson Steve and I sell never do that again and so I'm back playing roulette

right which is Twenty Three Right Casino Rama or whatever they call it regina rent whatever it is should be called casino this'll be the death of you that's what she'd be calling so goes well let's try it again I put it in again back to back twenty-three Stevie why I win I'm not lying I win all my and I'm going this sleep at Oxford advance on my check it was just just bet on Seattle slew and up put money down and every time every time one of the arrows comes around lands on your guy you pay double for everyone comes along so I walked uh-huh and and maximum out okay that in one night in one night probably three four grand that I'd lost mm crying on the edge the table and a buddy of mine walks in with his girlfriend got him bruce in my hotel room and I decide to stay Steve and I go off go off not for one hundred or two hundred bucks here Steve Okay I'm down like a grand or two the next day Steve at the table okay and I've got some money again and I'm I'm going to this this can end well you first of all I don't bet enough steve to possibly win back the three or four grand you know I'm betting like twenty five spin or fifty bucks a spin or something like that that's about it that's the extent of my gambling when the NFL playoffs roll around that's when I get into it other than that it's fantasy football and and pools and frigging whatever that is thirty six to one wins like seven grand okay I win thirty five hundred AK- he was a partner the oilers and he's wonderful Guy Philanthropists no and he's walking through smiling and I know he's like hey Jimmy what's going on twenty five dollar Guy Bang Steve the number hits wow he's never been in a casino Steve Ever Ever Okay and he the guy win decide to get it I'm a blackjack player play blackjack I'm pretty good you know I play by the book but but I've been playing blackjack a long time I liked it but I decided so you can't do that in blackjack they do watch for that in roulette it's a little different steve because of the fucking double zero thing excuse my language okay you know that double zero the whole math but that's the way it works you will always win your original bet on that I win okay so that's not allowed you can't do that somebody that ever goes there like in his bets on red and then if they lose than a double their bet and basically keep doubling until they actually win one Yup Yup that hits everyone's a loser unless you're on the double zero right so you know it seems like how often is going to happen it happens more often I mean you need you need you need to hit the number to get the thirty six to one or whatever right it's just not going to happen and anyway I'm sitting there Bruce Yeah just just killing a little time here casino he goes I've never been in one before you know what do you to there let's keep an eye on that kind of thing because you could actually do keep that going for quite a while until you win one and then just walk out well you need a lot of first of all you can't do it in blackjack because if you do amount if you start with a five dollars bet and you keep what what the method would be as you keep if you lose you keep doubling your bet okay so you lose five then you bet ten popcorn cookies chips gumy's and more healthy and still delicious that's a win win Popeye supplements six Ottawa locations or Popeye's candidate Dot Com and doc plus a couple and ran home and ran home I might have stuck to this guy he can't lose and then he walked away you got you gather I don't see it very often steve because you need about six million dollars if you start at five bucks and start to lose what the doubling okay win after anyway anyway I'm going nowhere near Cassino and neither should you so you lost to get to over the course of the show when we come back and getting a little of the NHL Roster Zahn -Tario real people great rates solid advice visit all ends dot ca or text six one three eight six zero six zero zero Evan Insurance guy if you don't you should I'm not talking about a big insurance company I'm talking about a local team who won't keep you on hold for hours that's all insurance Bonda so you need a new car but between work getting dinner ready getting the kids to their activities little you time times at a premium right Jim Kaye Ford they're trying to help out with the here no being a fan first game I am yeah great now I hardly follow any looks like Patrick Line is about to sign and it was like buckle up all he's going to do is stay where he is I don't know that that's going to be a massive eight you're looking forward to the NHL season or are you kind of in a mode of bats way too long it's too early it's October I'm not going to worry about it until you know the new calendar explain the game and I'm like well there's thirty six numbers Bruce and and you put your money on the number you can put it all around at all this Shit I've tried to explain chances are he is going to sign how many of the signings that were up for grabs with these guys ended up leaving at-home test drive they'll bring the test drive right to you homer work whatever's best for you book your Ad Home Test Drive today at Jim K. Ford you'll drive in Orleans we all feel that reasonable offer yeah because usually if an offer sheet is made it's usually at absurd offer with the intent of that oh well that'll make it really the headlines in the NHL Right now because there's just about stupid signings injury shit that that's all that's all I can see right now so I'm just waiting early go anywhere but sort of backfired on the kid I guess because Montreal offers a couple million lower than what is market would have been Eddie shakes number do you know that it is so he throws a couple of hundred on there and so I go okay we're gonNA throw one hundred bucks on there too right which is way off I usually canoes him staying now he's going to leave well that would be a bit of an emotional roller coaster for the average jets fan everybody's expecting he's an RFA is being set some of the RFA's or on the League finally signed on and And a whole lot more here on the program now I need to tell you about some of our find sponsors and they are it'd be win after about four or five of them though you would and then you start over again right right then you start over you go back to your five dollar bed again or whatever so you'll always win that original RFA sign them to an offer sheet and then his original team has the right to match it and they almost always do that happened with Montreal offering TSN and Darren drager tweeted something out and I guess the TSN Social Media Team decided to blow it up as a big picture of it it's like buckle up Winnipeg I don't know that was fun you know and he walked through the Casino Win for dinner isn't it crazy story about total Kazeem yeah the the roulette wheel like see see who sends fans had basically had absolutely enough of and it looks like he's going to get lots of time I'm going to put some rookies back there and so it's looking forward my oilers right your sense yet my i read a little summary today of this might be they're saying Toronto's Lock Calgary Montreal Winnipeg supposed to be okay now Edmonton ink and then Carolina Goes Fuck this is great we saved ourselves a couple million dollars and matched it correct I don't know if it was two million less but I think it was it was definitely messages expect the unexpected shirt I agree with most everything you said there but at the same time I'm always keeping an ear open for you know the crazy right I'm going and I'm trying to be cool I'm Eric Brown Nick Goodwin there all right buddy and he gathers the chips and walk guilty we pound back that giant bag of chips during a big game but what if your snacks could be delicious and healthy as well Popeye supplements has you covered with amazing snacks like protein anything but have outer stevie go in there and you bet that red and you try and predict all you have all my God it was black I thought it was going to be read hard for them to sign and squeeze it under there under the salary cap but this was actually Carolina's going okay well that was sort of what we were looking at anyway so the wings stupid signings my goodness people whatever you know they're gonNA sign the guys are not going to sign they make the money whatever I saw I saw a tweet this weekend it was from you lose ten twenty lose twenty bet forty so if you do that math your when you win you're always GonNa win your original bet okay I don't want to go assigned to deal might have been it might have been well you did last week great sometime or the the last ten days yeah no but I'm I'm and teams of the vase yeah no there was none yeah so it was only the one that was even offered an offer sheet because that's all you can do it the best year longtime for Canadian teams to make the playoffs with the exception of Auckland like like it's like it's always you know any season can go sideways on you and he sees in the team can get hot any team and he sees the team could just drop off a cliff and and on Wednesday night against the Toronto Maple leafs their regular season opener they got rid of Logan Brown v Tally Abromov and Christian Yaro Cro's plate going to be interesting I think sends interesting to see if they'll be able to take a step forward as in not not in the thirties as far as their rankings thirty one a year he finally gets in there on on twitter last night when the central plan the haves and almost every observer was thinking Logan Brown was going to make this team they thought okay he's having a good game games in the NHL be great if they weren't in the thirties as they've been the last two years so let's get into the twenties I think that's a that's a noble goal when you get ah to say I mean this when I look at you know the Saint Louis Blues they were last place in January and now they are the reigning Stanley Cup champions down to and that's our rb computing web today what do you think of some of the cuts that occurred because the sends got down to their final roster they get it going this week opening up right we're going to go ahead and sign this guy now right so that was the most exciting thing that happened in these signings yeah I predicted what's his name maligning wouldn't go back to Winnipeg wrong wrong knows what to expect from any of the Canadian teams this year in Toronto made a lot of changes they've got a they've totally overhauled their defense they're going to give a lot of minutes to cody kids missed it like three or four the last five years so a they gotta get they gotta get moving but I'm not sure what that show hold chunk of the NHL season last year and so I thought he was a bit of a surprise and a lot of people thought okay this is Logan Brown's fourth training camp maybe and you know what this is it's episode one twenty eight of your daily blasted sports and whatever it's the project assisted on the play by Jim Kaye Ford linings are FA Sebastian Aho an offer sheet auto signed it Carolina matched it. Bob's your uncle so are are are are F as rare it there I saw a guy who coughed up the puck and his own really badly a couple of times he's aloof backhanded passes toward the middle of the ice in his own zone so I think there's he's playing with all the best player that good linemates and I think he's GonNa make it I wasn't sure about that I thought I thought I saw a guy who is still struggling with intensity antic level season has come to a close mercifully sweet sweet mercy I think I've become an I was a massive major league base- ball fan and I still like it it's not like I don't like it but what the raptors did I think a bigger raptors fan now that I'm a major league baseball fan and I'd never concussion but they've got a bunch of promise next year I I've heard that in a long time wait till next year wait till next year is more real raptors came along it was sort of gave everyone the forgiveness of terrible hockey it's all I'm saying I don't it's good call one sending the quality prospects down to Belleville for over ripening to keeping the crappy vets in Ottawa in Ottawa's lineup in order to better in the raptors the raptors saved Canadian sports fans last year gave retention yeah I take it all back. Canadian sports fans suffered K.. Hockey fans suffered last year no matter where you're from I guess that's Deep Josh rights I have no comment as I have not watched a game yet however I know we are to an over the blue team in the preseason I've noticed that and I noticed we both have the same problems in that we say Eah no allot Oh and a lot of a lot of ums that we could probably work on leaf sock okay much of that participating in the poll but I still like it bloody vendetta rights bloody vendetta what the hell kind of twitter name is that execute the tank three great pick in the upcoming draft four unparalleled success starting in two thousand twenty one as they promised or something like that five size for for the Blue Jays there has been a long time but they are I mean I know that there's reason for optimism they've got a lot of interesting players in the three big guys with the the for winning the world championship Steve I mean from what you save them from hockey from hockey and baseball there's nothing going on so that we'll get to worried about him yet let him play a ton in Belleville and get better euros still needs refining Abromov is small and needs time the more hair Bruce Camp writes not about idea to get brown some more seasonable call him up later I like the direction they do need a high pay Chat Guerrero and and be show Biz Yo might have been the best of the three when you get down to it and they've got all kinds of other interesting names like Rowdy Tellez doc fair enough no good listen to the show disappointing that Logan Brown could not crack the top six but it does take longer for the big mandated altogether because it is brought to you today James by the good folks at rb computing it sure is Steve You said it if you need a new computer system myself to you I've been listening back to shows I've been listening back to shows you did it again I've noticed that too as the go edits the show good not great with all the expectation going into the year and all the hype around that Guy he's he's got to have a step for next year it's repairs or anything computer related reachout Darby computing they promise fair pricing speedy turnarounds and ANA service you can trust plus mentioned the rate his numbers across one hundred sixty two games he would have thirty nine home runs and sixty three doubles that was the pace he was on he's pretty exciting player and just grandma Grit Chick Danny Gans Derek Fisher Billy mckinney's lots of Chaska Hernandez that's that's pretty exciting however that so now it's like they're down to basically their ground zero and trying to build that thing up they sent thirty nine different pitchers to the mound this year and tell me you didn't watch that thing front to back oh I did the the rafters and I gotta say because the Blue Joanna talk a little bit about the Blue Jays well because they're twenty nineteen titles there was just no success at all like they're that staff said a bluejays record for most home runs given up in a season there era was John Ideally so it'll be interesting to see how that all plays he'll get it but I don't know how long can be on the hot corner for you have to wait and see now back to the web that that pitching staff like that's just garbage that'll make any anything good they had they traded away at the deadline like I talked to so many guys in the media guys guys were just fans and the name Scott Sabahan was uttered by nobody put it on one of our more recent episodes guys and played a single NHL game he's been grinding it out for six or seven years in the American Hockey League and okay I'm GonNa try not repeat myself say and you know here I can't do it can't do it nobody as potentially making this team when you look up and down the training camp roster at the start you'd say to yourself their Scott Sabri N- filler just I skin he got Max Domi last night as we speak here Saturday night and not the Max Domi is a big guy or anything but he's a weasel Sabrin didn't miss a beat and just started feeding the kid left's it was absolutely outstanding so way when dear yourself immediately descends fans any also The final cuts is seeing Scott Sabir and make the team I mean with respect to the guys who were sent down I always root for the underdog and here's a guys twenty seven years of age and we talked to yeah so it's nice to see I like it I like it and you know no one's really speaking out against it that I could see today I didn't see anything like this year to get a difference maker Upfront and though Alexi the friendlier line the path that they are going though and one last one here Pierre S. Five points jacked and get twenty percents off on all services checkout RB COMPUTING DOT COM or dropping to six in place in bells corners one of the things I love about the A. and all the guy did was just bust his ass like just constant hustle all the time and it's not like a like a standard enforcer which he is he's he's arete and he came over and started doing his rat things started cross-checking sovereign and most of the Ottawa senators it'd be like hey stop that thank but but I'll watch next year blue jays will start up again April I'll be right there if you look at if you look at bogus yet well a fourteen or fifteen errors may be a problem that that guy had but you got the rule I guess there's a bunch of guys will probably WanNa Play D. H. E. Family on hand for the first time he suits up so I think it's awesome it really is you don't often see it in professional sports at the highest level that a you know bring Logan Brown keep Logan Brown round or keep Abramov around because he is a guy that was part of one of those trades with Columbus auditory towards the guy or anyone else the team even saying this is stupid they give guys it's great it's great that someone said you know what let's give the guy shot let's give the guy how reply all Calgary was the best in the West your best in the West what saves what saved I always repeat I got under the skin of Austin Matthews Matthews is going to all the trouble of going yeah who are you anyway and looking at the back of his back of his uniform to see his name will it does it absolutely does standing up for teammates whether it's a fight or just the threat of one I think it's like it can pick up a teams energy and confidence and he is going to finally plays first NHL game this week in all likelihood with the Ottawa senators and it just came out of the blue and honestly I really still think there's a place for it in the game so many people go oh yeah while he's GonNa play five to eight minutes a night how can that make an impact ever thought he'd think that no doubt about it who isn't although they got Guerrero got boba shut you couldn't play out the rest of the year because plays a game with a lot of flair and and Vladimir grow junior I mean he's the expectation level he still good season but that's about it the feel good story you know that they take shot on someone you will see the odd story where a kid comes in and plays who doesn't have much of a shot and then begins the most successful year in the NHL Right and when it came to Ottawa they talked about Smith as the coach and again I've seen this quote from have in the American Hockey League is at fifty two different flights but he shouldn't be labeled as the classic enforcer because he can skate and he can get under think was was his quote so there's no doubt in my mind with that attitude and that new philosophy that this guy has coming in is he's warning people saying watch out because which is a goal being scored the only reason this happens Steve was because of the head coach and I don't mean that stupidly I'm assuming he has a lot to do with stays who doesn't but if I read a piece on that guy a couple of days ago it might have even been in that summary of how the Canadian teams may be looking at within life it's who you know and connections open doors and these two guys were together when Dj Smith was the head coach of the Oshawa Generals back in twenty but you can this sounds a little different coming from this guy it's almost like he was saying we may not win the game but they're going to hate playing against us the people or him talking about him saying he is the GonNa make these guys work really hard that they're going to have to do it now you've heard that before right they're gonNA have to work day in day old and the Duchenne trade key asset blue chipper so there's two blue chippers they sent down on the weekend instead they keep around this undrafted tough guy From Pierre we started strong yeah just to just to gas this is awesome where in the right direction this is going to be a different brand of hockey a different style and no one's taken a night off and we are going to grind and grind grind so given that this doesn't surprise me and then he wound him and then he wound when he was skating he tried to get in sovereigns car after the game this guy has come into the league saying this is what's going to happen this is what's going to happen with this team and sees this guy obviously fitting in there right Lebron's been bouncing around he's in Calgary's Organization for a while and other places too but that connection didn't exist between whoever the NHL head coach was there twelve that team had great success and Scott Sabrin was one of his key guys he had thirty goals and one hundred forty two penalty minutes for Oshawa that year and all that for sure you know beyond the connection the coach the coach can't take two months it was just the one year that he was head coach there and Sabri was one of the guys but that stuff matters that those connections matter and so he comes in with an open mind cheer for a guy like that but it's almost like that rudy story and and he's an Orleans kid so he's going to friends and they signed that guy and get shot yet he fits in with Dj Smith's mentality for all the reasons you talk about their but on top of that and it's it's a great Saint Joe's junior high in grade ten it only went grade seven to grade ten and I befriended a guy who did my other friend who was as meek and mild as I was and that's how bad that is I remember I'm fifty eight years old now are going to be fifty eight and I still remember that I wish there was someone around believe me I wished that someone would have stepped up hey take a step back here you know it would have meant so much right unique love and appreciation you have four teammate like that yet to two examples of that I got bullied but he's been working so hard for so many years I I like I'm glad Ottawa did the Yep me too I think it's it would have been so easy to go see you've lined up in a line yet to run your head off and bus through the arms this friend of mine when it came time to play this I was out there I was always a bit of a nerd but I wanted to perform like a bull shit like you said when he came up is supposed to be anyways exceptional set records for eleven twelve doubles in a row or some shit like that ordered right. You can't pick nine guys that played street hockey with course I'd be funny but so beyond the connection he's got he's got an idea hi there I was scared I just remember it I still be sleepless but the guy was a bully him and his buddies came into my room with with that so you didn't get like even hitchcock when he came to the she's like I don't know I think I see what they need to do I think I can fix this team but but wasn't really open about what he was had in hockey game sky stand up for me I've no chance against this guy that's working me over and this but and buddy comes in and and works him over this I think I told you the story got bullied in radio there a couple years ago that story and prior to that when I was thirteen or fourteen year old kid when sport or whether it's on a playground or wherever like you've had a guy that stood up for you I have I'll say that I'm going to speak for myself in that one of the only schools that had a field all the other ones didn't but he was super tough and anyway at the start of this first game of British bulldog think that when you get a team of kids like this guy's got the kids back and so I think it's I think it's a smart play all that and have many friends in the school and Super Nice guy super talented football player crazy football player but I was playing really good golf as a junior I went to a golf camp in northern Ontario there was some sort of clinic they were putting on and I got bullied I got bullied by hole. No don't say that you didn't need to tell anyone that you know so I was you know what I mean it was it didn't work apples may be from you you know real quick but instead we we opened up some old wounds there I think didn't WanNa Watch into this existential crisis are and the player so that factors in as well I agree with everything you just said plus the connection and I agree with is policy again I really but but those were years ago I'm not I'm not tainted from it but I sure remember it and then it went too far the other way Steve when I was at at the beginning of the school year he stops everyone in sort of growly voice where everyone would straighten up with this guy because they've seen fight and he said okay here's the deal church nepotism when when it comes to picking guys right someone wait a minute here funky we'll Bouche order for that last year were blamed British bulldog anyone touches drama GonNa Fuck and kill them and I went no no no today's question and this is kind of its unique questioning and it's a unique hockey record Mario lemieux sorry I decided I decided GonNa do and only only survived ear but I'm sure your life Jimmy that some guy that you knew whether it's you know and built the last couple of years now suddenly they've got Scott Sabir out there up front they've got more Viet ski healthy you need a couple of guys out there that will he played both ways on the football team he was incredible linebacker full full on got all the touchdowns Saint Joseph's undefeated for years and years because we so but you don't get the sense with that guy that he's going to do it you know once in a while you get young kids being called up who are skaters wingers or Centerman and uh hang out with the other kids and so we're going to start this game and then he was super tough guy super tough guy whatever challenges guide anything he played I'm GonNa say he scored one goal at even strength so you want I want you to tell me how he scored four goals in that game easily and the uniqueness of this thing steve is you're you're giving a guy a shot who's been a fourth liners whole life I'm guessing correct who's been who's had that role a sports trivia fact designed to blow your mind I forgot I wait a minute here oh my God yeah there's will look at the void fillings they're unique okay Mario Lemieux scored five different ways in one game yeah he's Gourd he scored what put the fear of God into these skill players and nothing will slow down a skilled player faster than the worry that they'll get their heads taken off any second up Oh my God yeah it's presented by Silk Web Solutions Dot COM for all your web design and maintenance needs spin your web with silk he didn't beat to everyone's drum he was a little uncomfortable with other people so anyway I prevented the guy my lunch with him and stuff like that well remember British bulldog here Yeah H. L. finding that it goes crazy trying to trying to not do what he used to do that kept them in you know at least kept him in the minors that he didn't get sent down for me they tried to do too much yeah right they try to get in there and do too much and it never seems to work out you know we've got to get to warn Super Trivia Warranty Super Trivia the coach there and I'll get my clipboard here most we'll work this out he's a stephen can we take a break and we lost thought on Scott Sabri is that wanted a couple of examples there and because it was I was just trying to illustrate the point of how players appreciate a player like Scott Sabri and so I was looking for one or two easy Steve got him all most people don't get them they can go through most there's always one missing I'll get them all all right so five different ways he's just a walking talking team builder like guys like that and and what's more I think that they're also because they're not gonna out skill anyone in Ottawa as opposed the way the way the sense of kind of been still some work to be done there I think there wouldn't have heard he made the team but we did get quite a bit of feedback on people with their takes on what has happened here Silliman's get I know that's right yeah so he's been that's his whole job so the only thing you would ever worry about maybe if you bring a kid up who's going to play in the tonight it was like Oh Jerome Yeah okay well I just Mario lemieux scored in one single hockey game and one of them is even strength correct I've already given you that one so we four left correct okay power play now you go shorthanded yup one of the more you gotTa admit that is one of the more unique hockey records that exist and may never be broken again like there's the cycle in baseball lead some help we highly recommend using the Glenn Walton Real Estate Team Glenn will help you find your dream home or help you sell your current home fast for the most money Glenn brings you experience unless you're Jimmy yes sir okay so that is our trivia for today and when we come back on the program really get some more hockey news the NFL's after we pound back a giant bag of chips during the big

an angle this chick Kelly Humphries who's a two-time Olympian Bob all right do I'm sorry to interrupt you but I wanNA talk about it because I'm pissed I followed this story this week my my routine now that we're doing this podcast as in more healthy and still delicious that's a win win Popeye supplements six Ottawa locations or Popeye's candidate dot com if you're about to buy or sell your home in the Ottawa region you'll three eight six zero six zero zero eight so busy day okay got something you've got something I do wasn't anybody bullies out there I know the five ways I know the fight look you look at me right here in the I know the five ways Mariel scored goals different yes he piloted she piloted the sled there for Canada for fifteen years now she's worn gold I think I think so I think so but you know me bast look you're at home test drive today Jim k four dot com Jim Kaye Ford you vill drive in Orleans and you could shop around for insurance on your own you could call the you never be broken sure we're GONNA get even strength penalty killing powerplay right that's that's what I mean support and guidance right through to the finish line contact Glenn today had Glenn Walton Dot Com so you need a new car but between work getting dinner ready and getting the kid she's left the team to go and compete with us that's the end of this story that she actually the other activities times at Premium Jim Kaye Ford though they're trying to help out with the AD home test drive they'll bring that test drive right to you home or at work whatever it is an American which why she's allowed to compete for America now right which is one of the stupidest reasons ever that someone should be allowed to do this companies and wait on hold forever or you can text the team at all Insurance Ontario they'll shop the market for you and hook you up with the best rates every time visit all ends dot ca or tech six one some issues that she has with the team Okay and the coaching and she said they've harassed her with their attitude towards her very strong somebody asked me that question for whatever reason I never was one of them I just like completely gapped on anyway it's mostly to bring up an amazing fact fine fine but here's the issue okay you can't compete for another country Steve After you've already competed with a different one you can what caught up in the details here this story the chick is now from Olympic medalists by the way to golds in a bronze really good really good you can't you can't do it well I mean part of me is like you know who knows what goes on behind closed doors or something like that she's obviously through headlines looking at different sources Steve Yahoo sports all these other guys newsroom bunch of stuff I appreciate it Stevie this and I'm sandbagging slightly Shen within the system or the public eye when things aren't right that's so desperately important to me whatever whatever Kelly okay is take with her how we should handle her as a team member and so she's freaking out she's freaking although she'd been a little demanding she thinks she should get extra east bobsled Canada or whatever it's called is about being able to compete free from abuse and harassment and the need to be able to speak up without fear of retribution has left the Canadian team and will be competing for America and I think it's I believe her husband that she just got married to in the last couple of weeks treatment even in some of the posts that are out there and I've seen that she said online you're going well little entitled here when you see some of the stuff but she's an elite athlete she totally is a non issue for me that you got to do it she lives in California now too I think so what happens is apparently there's some on this is disrupting the culture of the sport and all that stuff and they said fine you can go you can go we're going to get we're going to give you your full release so interesting things go the helmet-to-helmet hits in the NFL driving me crazy so get to that in a second I I want to tell you that one of our sponsors Popeye supplements and we all tend to feel a little guilty massages she wanted some other shit she expected different treatment a little bit and as a result of that she ended up strength to file a lawsuit against it's one coach in particular okay and the story is she doesn't like she thinks she's been mentally abused emotionally abused by this guy with him because none of the other teams none of the other members of the teams have come forward with anything anything like that at all anything at all that this is a sole case that very upset with the treatment she received I think by one coach in particular and just livid about it and livid that she felt like Bobsleigh candidate didn't do a non it can't be doing that in my mind you can't just up and leave a your your your country and I don't fuck if you're married or or whatever okay the courts the

Trump Signs EO Saying Judaism Is Now A Nationality, New Toothless NDAA Allows Yemen & Iran Wars
"And welcome to the daily Rapa a concise show dedicated to bring you the most relevant independent news as we see it from the last twenty any four hours Wednesday December eleventh two thousand nine hundred ninety. Thank you for joining me today. Sorry I'm rushing to the table here to get this show. Let free today and I messed up the time again. So there's probably plenty of people think that I'm not starting for about an hour. I'm sure they'll come figure it out. Apologize to all of them for those. That may be no one general all sense. We have our weekly show today with Brian on after hours. Live starting right after this if Brian. You're watching I apologize. I think I'm going to be a little bit late. The things I really wanted to get into and it's been a hectic tactic day but there is some important stuff to get into today. I have quite an interesting show for you that I'm going to try to get through reasonably quick and then jump over to join Brian for we can continue. Can you talk about this and whatever else but some pretty interesting stuff today things that you probably would not believe if I pass you on the street and told you this just happened. Such as Donald Trump confusing an executive order to basically say that Judaism is now a nationality right because apparently the president of the United States can determine these things for the entire higher world more information about Iran. Continue the official statement. Now that the WHO these are not Iranian proxy but yet the war in Yemen is going to keep going. I guess the reason as an justifications to be determined because that's what they said before and more about Afghanistan and a couple of other things I'm going to get into today but I want to quickly start off before I get into those. Just do a quick shout out to people in general and just wear a mad and everything. That's happening I just was actually speaking with my family about this before I would live and just the the fact that I feel truly truly blessed with everything that's going on in my life with all of you here in the chat with everybody every every day that we do show that chooses to join me here and think mm for themselves and help people recognize what's going on around the world. I'm truly blessed to have this this platform this ability to jump on here and speak and have people at least entertain from what I'm saying and just the idea that there are good people out there in the world. People like you in this chat that take the time to think for yourselves and help other people that may not expect it right right it every single day in our lives. You know that I've been dealing with things here setting things up such as the cable and there was a person I dealt with today that really went above and beyond just so far or above and beyond just because he was wanting he wanted to help me he wanted to make sure I got what I needed. Not because he was gonNA make more for or it's going to benefit him in some way but just because he's a a good person. There are people like that in the world we have to see that on a daily basis and recognize that that in fact may be the majority right as they continue to tell. Tell us that everything so bad and things are so dangerous. That is true but I truly believe that we have the majority in the world of people that want to do. Good that want to believe in the right people right and again to all supporters out there whether the you here in the chat or you out there listening somewhere all you. That are supporting me and allowing you to do what I do. I just couldn't do this this without you. I feel truly blessed every single day to jump on here and do this. I just had to get that off. My chest was such an important thing to say. But let's begin with the big topic. Here that I think is very important. I just couldn't believe that I saw this and by the way I'm going to start with just one quick screen share to show this. I know people are and I agree. I very unhappy with the way the screen insure comes across on this show. And then we'll get into the images show you but to begin the first article from times of Israel trump signs executive order combating antisemitism labeling Jews News as a nation right making Judaism a nationality which is alarming for many reasons. Right just right off. The Bat people may not understand. And if you just have no don't know the INS and outs of the story but when you begin to recognize what this is really about. It becomes quite nefarious and before we even get into that recognize. Recognize the fact that there is no way any president has the right to just do this for the world and then recognize that an executive order east this is. This is why I keep talking about ruling by one person signing a piece of paper right. This is governing by executive order. That's what this is because excutive order is not meant to be mandates that hand down to the rest of the world or even the rest of the country in by-in-large they're supposed to be orders that predominantly affect the executive branch today. It's basically just taking the place of Congress right. These are things that Congress are supposed to be doing declaring wars and declaring all the things that are happening here but even congress than and this would still not be authorized. No one has the right to just be like okay. We're now naming this nation for the world. We're now moving Jerusalem to the capital. We're now giving you the Golan Heights. We're now how saying that illegal actions in the West Bank or not illegal per se. This is what they continue to do now. He signed an executive order for the world. All to say this and oldest really does as I see it is signed into law the inability to criticize Israeli government policy. That's what this is about about or rather one of the main two things I see this being about because right now people like myself that are calling the Israeli government. They're killing innocent people. Oh you're anti Semite. While I was only talking about the government and their actions not Jewish people all really. Oh but you're anti Semite because we knew you really meant everybody. This is the argument. But it completely ignores or removes the ability to actually criticized the government's policy which is obviously paramount than any actual represent except representative government as we should know as we're seeing quickly diminished here in this country as well but what it does is signed into law as Ron. Paul always talks about about the fact that we're not allowed to criticize Israel's government because now that's the Jewish people right. That's what it is not that there aren't other people that this is. What's so frustrating? Frustrating is that Israel houses a lot of different people prophecy. They're trying to change that the government that is but now we are saying that this is just this is their nationality right. I mean there's many ways you could make this sound ridiculous by pointing out the just arbitrarily name. An entire group of religion ideology as a nation is is what they've been trying to do. That's the point of Zionism to conflate the to manipulate the story to be able to hide the actions of the government now as before. Four as you go onto the next part here which is the next part that I find this. This ties in with bead. Yes this is what it really is about at least a face value behind the scenes here but just just a quick update that I saw it. I wanted to share here on the on the updates. For Times of Israel's you can see here it says On right here gaunt's from a I love and hours ago. Gandhi says Israel going to third elections because Netanyahu wants immunity now they are going to third elections which is unprecedented and kind of ridiculous. But as this this is from criminal from Kansas Blue and white chairman Danny Gans asserts that Israel is on its way toward a third election in an under in under a year because of prime minister. Benjamin Benjamin Netanyahu's desire to obtain parliamentary immunity. In the light of three criminal indictments. He's facing so basically using this entire government and its elections to to cover himself from crimes. And this is the person trump's working with this is the person that trump is continuing to back. Even people within their own government. Think are bad and Ben against US knows ain't understand the end one of these people that's been part of all the horrible things happening Gaza but nonetheless. They're they even find hibs. Tim's actions to be just any any number of words that come to mind. I just find that to be crazy and recognize that. Even if that's not the primary motive and I I think it is. It still is happening if he were to get elected this would basically we become immune from these charges. Crazy crazy stuff. But let's get on to the next article here and this is the point that I think is very important. I mean I really believe this comes down to stopping us from being able to criticize Israel which is kind of one and the same at the end of the day but this is the other main point is to be able to stop people from participating in constitutionally protected acts of boycott which is what they've always been trying to come after we've been talking about on the show for a long time as this is entitled Trump Administration citing antisemitism on college campuses to interpret Judaism as a nationality which is exactly what just happened the executive order he signed individually saying I'm choosing this for the entire world or at least that's what they're saying the world is not going to abide by this the very least I mean I would argue that. Executive Order doesn't apply to this country by the executive branch but they're making the executive orders are rule by executive order today now. Donald Trump has signed executive order claiming that Judaism is a nationality and not just a religion. which again is exactly what Zionism has tried to do over the years? conflate the two things now just because a US president signs an executive order does not mean that is now a reality despite how the mainstream media sells it and is right now right by the wait the same mainstream media that tells us that trump is Russian agent yet then treats executive orders as absolute decrees when they agree with it. That is right. They'll let you work out that that contradiction and your brain right because oh well. He's Russian agent. Working for the Kremlin. But oh we agree with this. so He's a good. This is good right. We don't make trump. Did something good but we still praised the action. But that's an action Chin from a Russian agent of key. According to you right just recognize. That's all nonsense. It's all fake. Divide now the executive order will allow trump to take further steps to combat what they are actually naming in this anti Israel sentiments right anti Israel sentiment. That's what this is saying. But they're claiming this. This was about antisemitism right about Jewish people but yet then they actually name it anti Israel sentiment so even within the actual document. They're already going in the direction that this is meant to achieve right that Israel and Jewish people are one and the same. You're not allowed to call out Israel's crimes or even if let's say you don't think committing crimes and if and when the crime occurs or even just one of their officials carry something out such as Netanyahu's bribery charges. You're not allowed to point that out because because that's anti Semitic that's what this does which is crazy as I've seen numerous times I've constantly been on the other side of this battle where I'm getting it from people on on the other side of the extreme telling me that I'm helping helping the evil Israeli government because I'm not pointing out the problem right and that's that's ridiculous read. The Jewish people are not the problem. Here it's the group that has hijacked that and using it against everybody. Now there's plenty of Jewish people probably most of them that are brainwashed by this just like most people in this country and in the United States are brainwashed by the Military Industrial Complex to think that murdering people for freedom is something we should cheer on and respect. It's the same thing that doesn't mean. There's not a big problem happening. But we cannot broad-brush every single Jewish person. That's just stupid but the point is this is being done by nefarious people. We'll at the head of the Israeli Zionist government. That is meant to stop you from being able to criticize their crimes. That's what this comes down to and now saying it's anti Israel real sentiment is just tying it up a neat little bow now. I was unaware that it's now somehow racist according to them to actually be against a specific nation which is what they're saying right. Anti Israel sentiment not anti Jewish sentiment but anti Israel sentiment but I was unaware that it's racist to be against a specific civic nation so by their own narrative understand. It's actually racist now for trump pompeo to be rabidly anti Iran. Oh but I guess that that somehow only applies to Israel but if you say their government get special treatment pull than you are racist now. The executive order will also allow trump to to specifically go after what they named divestment movements on college. Campuses which is yes which you know that by requiring colleges and universities to treat those movements as discriminatory in order to keep their funding right so this is where the meat of it comes out where it turns out in other words they are extorting the power structure of these colleges which by signing executive order. As if you're doing it for good reasons you're extorting these power structures. The colleges is which depend largely on government funding and forcing them whether they want to or not to disregard the constitutional rights of their students. That's what this is and remember that the only reason most of Congress said that they oppose the Beedi s the movement was because of the two state solution. We talked about this. Oh they're inherently contradictory which we now know is never happening. The two state solution is gone yet. They still attacked the BBS movement which had showed it wasn't really about that sidestepping a argument and it was about the fact that they are being. The lobbyist groups are influencing these politicians be against something that's inherently constitutional and by by the way four different federal judges have ruled unconstitutional to stop us from participating in a constitutionally protected boycott movement but apparently four judges ages that rule on this don't matter to the members of Congress who varied oath makes says that they're supposed to uphold that constitution right. But they don't care about that apparently they're they're attacking this because it's racist. That's just a simple. That's why just hate speech and racist and all these things are just a scapegoat. You just use them and just sweep away logic. It doesn't mean that there's not hate and racism we know those things exist but by the way there's already laws on the books to fight those things. These new things are meant to combat things that aren't connected to it the use this as cover. That's what this is really about now. Really recognize how nefarious this is to use this law manipulate the law and order to manipulate these colleges to stop them from supporting DDS movements or at the very least allowing them to exist whether or not they support them. They are forcing these colleges to violate. Take these people's constitutional rights by signing an executive order and doing this for a foreign country because understanding they're making about Israel the government. They're not they're they're the ones uh-huh doing that but it's really about but now they're just making it about one and the same so now they're actually stopping people for doing this for another country. Talk about meddling talk about influence and talking Russian meddling now the BCS Mubin for those that don't know a stands for boycott divestment and sanctions and this specifically aims to end the international support for Israel's oppression Palestinian. It's quite simple now. The boycott in basically boycott Israel for its activities in the West Bank and Gaza and all the things we've talked talked about because they're illegal and we have every right to boycott those things and boycott the sales and profit from the goods of Palestinians. That are being stolen. That's what any honest person should be doing. What they try to make it out to be is is the lie now? Trump's executive order would trigger a portion of the Federal Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty four that that requires educational institutions receiving federal funding to not discriminate based on national origin according to senior administration officials. Right so that doesn't apply if it's only about if you know in in the sense we're we're looking at it today right. If you're Jewish person doesn't necessarily apply now. The Department of Education region can withhold federal funding from any college or educational program that discriminates based on race color or national origin. According to the Civil Rights Act Now of course religion is not covered in that portion of the law so the administration would have to interpret Judaism as a nationality in order to potentially really punish universities for violations right so essentially they said Oh well the law doesn't apply the way that Israel wants it to so let's just change the law because that's honest people do right. We don't actually find out whether or not Americans are supporting of it or anything. The fact is it's unconstitutional. So should matter but all they do is just say. Oh we need to change changed the law to make this the way it is well. Then we're just going to write an executive order and change a lot where it's GonNa Change what this means and the definition of antisemitism will apparently be adapted did from the State Department administration officials were speaking with the New York Times and said that I ultimately the definition that they've been using that's bastardized in and of itself right. The entire definition of antisemitism has been changed and manipulated from something that does not mean what it should mean or what it has meant right this constantly constantly been trying to blend these things to make it specifically cover for the Israeli government now again to be clear. There's obviously anti Semitism and no one should be okay with that kind of hate in any sense. But that doesn't mean we're not allowed to criticise governments. Because you say that I am a certain way even though none of my actions or even close to that just because because you glean what you think I'm doing I mean it's just it's ridiculous so they are literally altering laws right in front of us to suit the needs of Israel's government this is what special special treatment looks like ladies and gentlemen meanwhile innumerable important issues could have been dealt with instead in this timeframe right but once again the US government. It is putting Israel I. It's pretty simple now. Jared Kushner the president's son-in-law and senior White House adviser pushed for the executive order big surprise now part of the story. I think that the mainstream media will surely leave out by accident. I'm sure is the numerous Jewish and Jewish groups and Jews individual individual Jews was in Jewish groups that are openly calling this an attack on free speech weird how that works right the very people that they're saying they're trying to protect and we have Jewish groups. MJ individual Jew standing up and saying that this is an attack on free speech right. Do you guys have no right to do this now. Jeremy Ben Ami A. for the president of J street wait a progressive Jewish advocacy. Group argued that the executive order was designed to have a chilling effect on free speech and a crackdown on campus critics of Israel rather than fight Anti Anti Semitism. He says quote we feel it is misguided and harmful for the White House to unilaterally declare a broad range of nonviolent campus criticism of Israel to be anti I anti Semitic right. But I'm sure that they'll just miss that that whole part of the argument sort of how they pretend that there's no one in Venezuela it supports Madero. There's no one in Syria reports. Assad that doesn't exist even though it's most of the population right but they choose to ignore that entire group of people such as in this case where all these Orthodox Knox Jews inside of Israel and all these different groups that constantly call out the Zionist problem it constantly. Call up the crimes of Israel and actually as I've shown on this very show so they call them anti Semitic Jew Orthodox Jews they're calling anti Semitic because they don't support the Israeli government talk about clown world. That's that's crazy. That's this is where we're getting too though you see because you have to blindly support the government sort of like in this country lest you be named Eddy Semitic or here be named un-american. It's it's the same agenda and I'm hoping you guys can begin to see that now. I'll follow up on this if this changes but I can argue this promise. This is going to continue the same way. We're we're GonNa see this being rolled into attacking movements all across the country. They're going to continue to shut this down and I can promise you up is going to do is create people. More people are going to begin. Begin to pay attention to the problem. Kind of the streisand effect. I would argue. But they don't seem to care because we're GonNa do is censor and shut us down even more. This is the reality and especially especially with this next story based on how many times they lie about these things get caught. Seems like that's their only recourse at this point to just keep us quiet. This is coming from antiwar. US No longer considers Yemen's who these Iranian proxy we talked about this story about the the basically. It was kind of hinting at this and saying it as much but now the trump administration has officially officially announced. Like we've been saying all along that. They no longer considered the WHO in Yemen to be a proxy of the Iranian government. Nothing's funny how they're saying no longer right as if something has exchanged which by the way nothing has changed right. There's no shifting allegiances here. It's not like this is what they want you to think without saying that. Oh well something shifted. Another no longer. longer-running proxy success. Actually I would be. I would love to see them in the next few days. Come out as if this was a success like they did in Iran right the lack of action that that we see shows the proof that we won racist. It's stupid nothing happened to me right but so this is the same idea if they come out later and say we won in Yemen. Because look they're no longer over a proxy they never were and by the way their own documentation has always shown that always pointed out on this very show but now they've officially said this. which again again seems to be a kind of a quick short sighted reactionary move as has kind of become common practice for their administration and this was in response to Saudi Arabia backing down dealing doing with the Hutus right because they suddenly need to shift because they're looking bad and how it's all going forward and it's clear to me that the mainstream media is still very much on the Iran in Yemen narrative as the article reads the trump administration denies that it's fighting are on in Yemen? I just love how they framed that I mean how funny for them to frame it this way right I mean if it's if it's some nameless faceless official that no one can see no one can verify stating something that goes along with their narrative. Well then they run without question on that story when we get an official statement right from the White House which we doubt as well but of course it goes against their narrative. Well we get this article all right where it's like the opposite. They stay the opposite in the headline with nothing to run on. But what do they need. Sources for the mainstream media lies about things every day but what the trump administration Asian failed to consider here it would seems anyway is that the entire. US involvement in this illegal war was based on the baseless claim. That Iran was in Yemen. That's it but now they just said that's not the case so two thoughts on this really. I mean it really to be honest I have about a million thoughts on this but to that I'm going to share right now one. What does this mean for all the other? It's a wrong we're certain but we can't prove it claims coming from the US government right now right all the things about all the the Iran tankers limpet mines and everything had been claiming that they haven't proven as they're now coming back claim that they literally used to murder people in Yemen. What are we supposed to do now? We should be doubting everything they've said about Iran and everything in general. I would argue but everything that they've used and said about Iran on to justify actions should be immediately discounted because they just showed us that they were lying and using lie to kill people and number two on that same point apparently the US government government is more than willing to starve an entire nation killing millions of people based on either ally. which is what I think it was? Or they're released an assumption either away. They just contradicted the very claim that they've been using to justify creating and continuing the world's worst humanitarian crisis for half a decade or more daddy's he just put it aside even though they now have nothing justifies. Why they're there but we won't get into that right? That's something the mainstream media will never talk about they. Ah They can't even talk about the war. In general this this whole thing was in spite of the huskies having substantial ideological differences with Iran basically zero contact and not even being the same type of Shiites but yet they still up until this point said that they around proxy as I've continued to show you that previous State Department cables outright stated that these were not in a rounding proxy. They've been lying to you knowingly this whole time and killing people based on that lie and now they just kind of casually say oh well now. They're not anymore are so are they going to be held accountable for all the things they did. Based on that lie all the things they allowed Saudi Arabia to do without repercussions. I mean it. Just it's amazing. The ability of Americans to just march forward without taking even the moment element to look back now the US did not explain their change in stance of course but it may reflect Saudi Arabia's ongoing peace talks with the WHO DIS as the. US right couldn't possibly support a peace deal that involved in actual iranian-linked faction right. So maybe the point is that they did this in anticipation of the fact that the Saudis have obviously lost this war that the US is leading. This is the point so suddenly the Saudis know that they can't beat what's happening. What's coming from the WHO these? They've already shown that multiple times so now they're obviously looking to make a peace deal probably without the US so the US is saying we'll crap we have to basically remove that claim because we can't make it look like we're dealing with Iran while we're in the middle of making a war against Iran right so there you go at the end of the day arguing that the Yemen war has something anything to do with Iran was the only real justification at the. US had offered to us for them to get involved in the conflict in the first place and if the salaries don't manage unhinged to resolve the conflict diplomatically which promised probably impossible for them seeing as how they know that they've already lost this war it will be all the harder for the US to justify defy. It's continued involvement in the war. If suddenly now they're fighting them again and now you just said they're not in Iran proxy but yet you're still in the war. which is I promise what what's going to happen happen right now? They no longer have justification. All they're gonNA do is just be like. Oh you know terrorism or something right. Oh we're gonNA liberate these people now. Suddenly the narrative changes ages but the objective remains the same. Just like everything else or you see. They just never seem to think this far ahead. These days unless of Corset involve coups are regime changes and even then I mean they seem to be actively decreasing their foresight. That's just my take but to follow up a bit more on the topic from yesterday on the National Defense Authorization Act. This is very important coming from antiwar leadership strips approved antiwar measures from the NDA. We briefly touched on this yesterday. And we discussed Senator Bernie Sanders and Ro Khanna condemned. The bipartisan compromise as quote a bill of astonishing moral cowardice. It's a strong statement now. The House version of the Twenty Twenty National Defense Authorization Act reportedly set aside and irresponsibly large amount of money just for military suspending right. This is what it looks like when you're ending endless wars right but it also originally added some antiwar amendments and other very basic limitations. You you know that we as Americans should be able to expect will be included yet. Were actually the first to go now. The House and Senate versions have now been reconciled into a final bill and essentially essentially all of the limitations that the House voted on and approved. We're simply stripped away. Just it's like that. All your representation all the representative government in illusions of democracy. They voted and it happened. And we voted them in. And they're supposed to vote for we want and then just day just move it. It doesn't matter the leadership and then even executive branch dawn. They just do what they want. Executive orders removing. This is the the faux democracy that we're always being shown right all these things that we actually want which is like the end wars and to stop these executive branch or of any administration for being able to just two wheeled war whenever they want quickly or move no big deal all of course in favour of a seven hundred thirty eight billion dollar bill that continues spending but makes absolutely no attempt to rein in the military and any legitimate intimate way. You know exactly like every American basically wants right. Now listen to the frustrating part that we need to keep seeing that there is no representation. Here Americans have wanted. It's very specific things that we all point two four decades and they never do it. How do we not see what that means right? This is not really they. They take the winds. They can to do something that benefits them to that also makes it look like they're fighting for what we want but at the end of the day it's full it's insultingly obvious that they do not have to do what we want and they regularly don't. The tempting like wars continued no matter what because they're not we're not the ones they're answering to now. The House bill had included text about ending ending. US military involvement in Yemen. Something that both houses had attempted to do in the war powers act resolutions and other things that were previously vetoed by President. President trump. Right again showing you the success of democracy than all of everything can work and all the people agree in all sides of Congress and he goes nope. I don't want it me. The President President individually doesn't want this on just gonNA veto at big after everybody else did. Obviously it was because of his ties to Saudi Arabia and the fact that there was money being made but but all of that text about Yemen removed gone no longer there even as they have admitted the lie of Iran involvement in Yemen which was the only justification for even being there yet yet. They still fight to keep going in this war. Why there's there's no there's no justification for it? How do okay now justify this war? They don't have one come up with something I'm sure but it's insulting to watch as they don't have their justification yet still fight to maintain the illegal war now there was text that said any. US attack on. Iran could only come with the passage of an authorization for the use of military force against Iran from Congress. Yeah that was completely removed. This preemptively aided Excuse me this aimed to forbid an unauthorized attack on Iran. You know the thing that basically every American wants and why would you want that to be removed. Well if you want to be able to carry out a preemptive attack on Iran you know the good old preemptive self defense. US US addition now while theoretically the president is meant to be forbidden from unauthorized attacks. Like that that's just not the way. Recent administrations have been acting pretending to interpret the law. meaning that they're either they either bastardize and intentionally misinterpreted or just ignored. Altogether democracy. Right the bill also removes a language that That forbade the Pentagon from researching as we've talked about many times on this show low-yield nukes now again obvious military industrial complex reasons why this was removed right because we want to be able to use more nuclear weapons and potentially make more war because the military industrial complex makes all the money now many have justifiably co op. Justifiable concerns concerns that this would mean obviously the usage of such arms would become more common. That's why they're low yield more usable so trump's trump's already said himself this disgusting that this is something that didn't know Americans want more nuclear weapons being used. They don't care everything that was removed was aimed at giving congress more specific say on how the military is to carry out certain operations and more importantly certain things that it is absolutely not to do. Do you know the most important job of Congress that's been ignored for decades that in the end more or less all of this was stripped away completely even backing away away from border wall restrictions that were one of the first things put on in place on the House bill now language of course sanctioning Russia for building a natural gas pipeline to Germany. That's entirely legal. Of course we'll s survived because Russia bad guy and the bill even gives the administration its long-sought Space Force. More military military spending. Hooray because that's what Americans want right. We don't have. We don't have water clean water in Flint Michigan and we're creating a space force military. I mean and this is just unbelievable. Understand that this pipeline is completely legal and even working with Germany. Who's an ally of the United States? There's nothing wrong with that. act in any way the all this is just the US just attacking and sanctioning people. Because they don't do what the US wants or even worse because they do something that benefits their adversary which is not illegal. I mean you could argue if they were doing something in a way that was around the law or some kind of the way that was dangerous or immoral. Then you could maybe make this argument argument but it's nothing of the kind. It's it's agreed upon with you. E nations and Russia and this gas pipelines very much closer to the European Union and just just because Russia can benefit the Donald Trump administration is attacking them and sanctioning them even potentially Germany. They've said for what because they are not getting getting a piece of the Pie. That's not what democracy's do that's not. What legitimate governments do that's what dictatorships? That's what authoritarian governments do and also building Space Space Forces when nobody else is doing that now the final in toothless NBA NBA bill. The National Defense Authorization Act. Bill passed the House today. They they all agreed. Oh we removed everything we said. We wanted to accept the military spending. Hooray three hundred. Seventy seven to forty eight and there will likely pass the Senate some days later I have no doubt and it will almost certainly be signed by the president so yet again another year full of nerve nonstop illegal wars with nothing to rein it in and as they all look the other way as many people continue to suffer and use the two party illusion as cover. Don't forget what's happening there and you will not hear hear about this on the evening news because they have been instructed to ignore it. I think we have to acknowledge how obvious that is one thousand Yu- many children die. Daily due to Saudi led attacks according to the health minister a thousand people a day children. Why would this not be on the news right? This is acknowledged by the UN to the world's worst humanitarian crisis according to the United Nations and this is all being done and happening because of the US government in Saudi Arabia and Israel for that matter her as we just found out that Israel's been there from day one shocking. I know a thousand children day and now the US is there based on the lie. That Ron was there but they just admitted that Iran is not there and yet they're still going and they and they removed the restrictions from the Yemen war on the NDA. How does that make sense? It only makes sense if this is a corrupt erupt fraudulent lying government. That's what makes sense. And even as they were yet they retract their lie being an Iran proxy yet. Fight I to keep the Yemen genocide going. The government is still citing Iran and Yemen to justify sanctions against other people. They just hope that. Just really hope that you're just not not paying attention as they counter one of their arguments and continue to use it Washington expand sanctions against Iran's largest airline accusing it of weapons of mass destruction proliferation. Now it says. The trump administration has levied new sanctions against Iranian companies including its largest airline. May An air. which they they are accusing of weapons of mass destruction proliferation and transportation of lethal aid to Yemen to Yemen? I it's classic classic and if you were hoping for evidence of any kind of verify that you must be thinking of another government. They provide nothing to verify. This claim it says quote. The Iranian regime team uses its aviation and shipping industries to supply its regional terrorists and military groups with weapons directly contributing to the devastating humanitarian crises in Syria and Yemen. According to Secretary of Treasury Steven. MNUCHIN right no seat doesn't say what terrorists or what militant groups are what weapons. Nothing definitive all right. If I will say they they do bad things in places but that's about as much as you're getting from that nothing to verify any of it but that's nothing surprising. This is the same thing they've been doing targeting individuals and we just talked about this targeting individuals in Iran. Because they think that they might be part of something and Yemen really like. They're claiming Yemen right now. The really back. They really need you to not pay attention because if you even slightly look into this stuff it falls apart. They're actually right now. CLAIMING THEIR ARGUMENT FOR WHY THEY'RE in Yemen. I'm in the first place. Is that Iran is not there is not the proxy of the WHO These which is what they've been claiming but yet nonetheless they still turn around the same day and use the argument of Ron being in Yemen to sanction Iran. When you just can't get more stupid than that? This airline has been the target of Washington's restrictions ever since two thousand eleven so so obviously they've been going after this right and has been has been repeatedly accused this airline by the US having deep ties with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard hardcore and regularly regularly transporting its troops and hardware around the regions. Gee I I don't know I I'd have to think about that that one for a second I I you know. I wonder I wonder if this Iranian airline has ties with the Iranian government that must be nefarious and evil. I mean how ridiculous this is. What they're claiming that they're attacking this wear line because they've repeatedly accused of having deep ties to the Iran military being this only makes it bad if just Iran bad guy? I mean if you were suddenly saying that the Israeli airline had ties to the Israeli government are are these really military is does that sound. Maybe with we'll just say we'll just say France let's say. The France military had a tie with French airliner. Does that sound of various. It's it's bridge and they try to make it sound but they just because they say Iranian Revolutionary Guards are terrorists which is their military part of it anyway because they say that very normal things that everyone else does suddenly become bad. Just how just. It's just really ridiculous. I mean who would like to list for me in the chat all the US corporations operations that have open and unnatural ties with the US government. Today I could list them all day long. How about just list for me in the chat just the airlines that have ties to the US military? Sorry we what hypocrisy right. I mean to suggest that an Iranian airliner airline grew a company having ties to the government is somehow wrong or even unusual usual would obviously make the US just as wrong and that's assuming that they're allegations or even true sense. They never even prove their claims. I mean mean it just gets ridiculous now this time. The airline was sanctioned under guess what an executive order which targets quote proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and and their supporters. You know all the things that they have proven now. It was not immediately clear at all. How exactly the company engaged in such activities because nothing was provided approved no proof of the claim whatsoever and even just showed again how they were sanctioning Iranian? I believe they're businessmen because excuse me Ronnie and individuals tied to the military which they say they said in their own report that they believe that they were involved. I mean that's crazy. That is rampant lawlessness. They I don't even know for sure but they're just going to sanction anyway a professor at the University of Toronto Saieed Mohammed Morandi says that the allegations that the airline has been proliferating. WMD's he's in some fashion or ridiculous. The new restrictions or yet another attempt to harm the Iranian people who are the real target of the economic war despite claims from Washington Washington that it only seeks to attack the authorities. He says quote. It's ridiculous and everyone knows it's ridiculous. The United States is engaging in economic warfare against Iran and its it's ordinary Iranians because by the way as I've said that's what sanctions are designed to do as their own documentation makes unbelievably clear and to end today. A quick point on how even when we know the mainstream media are not being there not to be trusted in general we all still so so how allow them to set the conversation and we see this with Afghanistan and I it is frustrating and it should be that we allow this to happen now. Let's coming from responsible. Statecraft is entitled. The Afghanistan papers highlight the systemic wrought in US foreign policy making now. How long have I been talking about? Afghanistan Ghanistan talking about all this stuff right. I mean it's just it's frustrating that we still let them set this set the tone now. This article reads. It says there was a laundry list of reasons for for why the US foreign policy establishment comes up short on so many occasions a total and complete absence of accountability in the industry ensures that those who demonstrate poor judgment are protected from punishment and allowed to repeat it or think about that. I mean this is exactly what we're talking about and this is exempt Vietnamese. We even have the president of Vietnam. We know that they've done this in the past and yet we just allowed ourselves to be ignored again now says in this harsh political political climate Pol- politicians have incentive to double down on the status quo rather than admit mistakes and an inversion to the smallest list reform in Washington. DC means that it's easier to simply go along to get along even if doing so compounds failure so basically just ignoring during the problem and allowing Americans to die so they can succeed as a politician and they know that we all should know that beyond a shadow of a doubt and goes on to say but so much of what goes wrong and US. Foreign policy today can be traced back to a lack of good old-fashioned common sense for one reason or another pragmatism has become an endangered species inside the beltway and is often overshadowed by Gospel that the United States has the strength power and fortitude and perseverance to bend other countries friend and foe alike to its will how spot on that it says the Paul the political and policy class remains captive but captivated by their own intellect elect and driven by assumptions. That turn out to be hollow shallow and counterproductive and I would simply add some of which are just flat out. Willful lies like we're seeing in regard Afghanistan. I mean what's most frustrating to me is that this is exactly exactly what I've been saying for years. And many other people for that matter even about Afghantistan specifically and I was called un-american for doing so even still cold as much right now even while we now have proof that at this was is the case. How infuriating now the RAW? US foreign policy must be acknowledged especially as they try to make this only only about Afghanistan as opposed to the reality that all of their wars are at the same Afghanistan was sold to us the same way liberating being the people spreading freedom fighting terrorism and well taking some lithium oil and opium for our trouble right yet. We now know that was a lie all all along so why in the world would be trust another word coming out of their mouths. And why would we not immediately question every other claim about every other war because this was not some wishful thinking as the Brookings Institute for basically dutifully and embarrassingly tried to claim name. The evidence proves this was the government knowingly lying to US knowing this couldn't be one from the very beginning and allowing Americans to die nonetheless the less because this was not about winning anything it was always about permanent occupation and they continued to fund that all the way along long now for the last part. I want to share with you here before I leave is the admission coming from an Afghan at former Afghanistan president. Who tells tells the Associated Press at the? US Cash Fed the corruption. All along says Afghanistan is four. President argued Tuesday. That Washington helped fuel corruption in his nation by spending adding hundreds of millions of dollars over the past two decades without accountability right. That's your tax dollars in the interview with Associated Press. He responded to findings from a trove of newly republish documents. Were once we've all talked about that show that they lied to us and the documents confirm his long running complaints about us. Spending this is coming from a person that worked in that administration under the US government. The point is everything and I mean everything points to the fact that the US US government actively misled lied to the American people to maintain an unwinnable war. Everything except the officials telling you right now that that's just not the case and this is one of those moments ladies and gentlemen or you can choose to pull yourself free of the propaganda machine. There's a crack in the door and yes it might be a little uncomfortable at first or you can choose to blindly accept the forceful assertions of government officials that run contrary to all the evidence and just go back to sleep. I hope that you will choose wisely. Thank you for joining me today. And I'm sorry Brian if you're watching I'm jumping over right now. If you guys don't WanNa come join me over on.
