Trump's Former War Room Director Andy Surabian on His Path to Politics
"He's former special assistant to president Trump and deputy political strategist. My good body. Andy, sarabia. Welcome back to America first. Thanks so much for having me today, sad. It's been way too long. It has been way too long, but we know you're a busy guy, you're in the background, you're making sure that we get the right maga candidates and that they win and this freight train of America first, not only trounces the Democrats in the midterms next year, but also our old boss will win in 2024. We have so much to discuss. You are a Republican strategist and you are the spokesperson for Donald Trump Jr.. So I just want to get in there that this is what these are the little things that this guy does after he leaves The White House. Hopefully we'll see him back there soon enough. Andy, let's start because we have an unfettered discussion here, say a little bit about yourself. Where do you hail from and how did you get into this? Is my dad used to say politics? It's disgusting, but it's so fascinating. So if your audience isn't able to tell by the accent that I still have to this day, I was born and raised in the very conservative dashkin of Massachusetts or the longtime nickname of tax executives. But this world has gotten so crazy that there's numerous states that have higher taxes today than Massachusetts. I mean, that's how crazy this country has gone over the last several years or we can't even really call it that's the truth it's anymore. But born and raised in Massachusetts, how did I get involved in politics, my lord? I mean, that's kind of an interesting question. I will give you the short version. Was originally interested in politics, via Ron Paul's presidential campaign in 2008. And I was just very interested in seeing someone come from outside the typical political
Constitutional Carry Is Now Law in 21 States
"And what's your hottest Second Amendment story right now, cam? Well, I think right now it's the upcoming Supreme Court case. New York State rifle and pistol association versus Bruin, which is going to address the question of whether the right to bear arms actually means anything like the right to keep arms does the Supreme Court answer the question about whether or not we have the right to keep arms in 2008 is the Heller decision, which struck down D.C.'s ban on handguns. And now they're going to be weighing in on the right to carry. They're taking on New York's carry law. So oral arguments are coming up. November 3rd and I'd say as we're getting ready for that to take place, there's a lot of anticipation. That's probably the biggest story out right there right now. And I think that this is a very interesting development because you've got blue states now that are trying to restrict carry more than more than maybe they were in the past. And at the same time, you've got largely red states going the other direction with constitutional carry Texas. Just a month ago became a constitutional carry state. And I believe that that's 26 states. Am I correct on that 26 states? I don't know constitutional carry? I never did 21, 21. I wish we had crossed that halfway point of more than half the country was a constitutional period. Probably going to take another couple of years to get there. But yes, I mean, it is incredible now because just even a decade ago, I think there's a handful of states that said if you can legally own a gun you can legally carry it. Now well over two dozen, there are 42 states that say if you pass a background check and you have undergone your required training, we shall issue UA concealed carry license, but New York, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, a couple of other states. They have a different view. You can pass the training. You can pass a background check. You can provide the character references that you have to provide in some cases. And still, you can be denied your concealed carry license because you haven't demonstrated a good cause to carry a God. Justifiable need to protect yourself in public. And really, that's the that's the question that's presented to the quarter right now is whether or not these sort of May issue policy that deprived the average American of their ability to bear arms, whether or not these laws are constitutional.
Kirk Cameron Tells Us About the American Campfire Revival
"Me bought some talking to my friend Kirk Cameron, Kirk. We love you. You just cheer me up seeing you. You were just bringing something up. I had wanted to be in Plymouth for this past weekend. I wasn't able to do it. But tell us about this. This is so it's just so wonderful. Anybody who hasn't visited that monument, oh my goodness, go ahead. So this is a monument that was the cornerstone was laid in the people of Massachusetts and it was finished in 1889 and president Abraham Lincoln was one of the original contributors to the building of this monument, and it was made to be the monument that told us everything that we needed to know about what made this the Pinnacle nation of the world, the Beacon of freedom and justice for all. And it's what we need to get back to if we want to maintain it. It's called the national monument to the forefathers and this last weekend was the very first of 7 nights of revival under the stars that I'm hosting. It's called the American campfire revival. And it really is sort of springboarded out of that first hundred days during the new administration's run of executive orders. And I thought rather than us just being on the defense, why don't we download the executive orders from heaven, the mandates from above and start running those plays and see what happens. And I made a campfire in my backyard for a hundred nights in a row. It's called the American campfire revival. There it is. Oh my gosh. There are sweatshirts. I love this. And so people would gather online in my backyard around a campfire and we would begin learning the history of our America. Not the 1619 version, but the actual true untold story of our forefathers who covenanted with their creator and applied his word to subdue tyranny and build institutions that would create

"Neither President Biden or pass sake have been critical of Illinois, Michigan, Nevada and North Carolina or their Democratic governors, for quote lowered vaccination rates.

Whether the priorities let me make this as clear as I know how I don't know. The single governor in this state is anti vax. As I've said over and over again, you can be pro vaccine and anti tyranny. The Republican governors, most of them with the exception of the governor of Massachusetts, in Maryland, I guess Our anti tyranny, Pro vaccine anti tyranny. In Florida is a massive state.

The History of the Supreme Court Justifies Opinions Against Forced Medicine
"Three generations of imbeciles are enough declared the supreme court in buck versus bell decision of nineteen twenty seven. I'm reading from timeline. Dot com quote. It is better for all the world. If instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecilities society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. That decision was written by oliver wendell. Holmes and forced sterilization became fully legal in the united states. The case came at the height of popularity for the pseudo sciences of eugenics which maintained that negative character traits like criminality and stupidity or the entirely the product of bad genes. The court decision that set the precedent for intervention on the sterilization of women was the jacobson v massachusetts thankfully. Many decades later there was a lawsuit that included deloris madrigal. Who is the lead plaintiff in the nineteen seventy-eight case which brought suit against la county's usc medical center birds nonconsensual sterilization of mexican american women in the nineteen sixties and seventies. It would make sense. Why certain communities are apprehensive of the government forcibly putting medicine on you.
The Chester A. Poling
"Today. I'm going to do something a little different for this installment of your next dive normally tried to take you to a dive destination where we talk about the trip from a number of different perspectives. The travel the lodging the dive operator. Oh yeah the diving. Now we've been around the world. But today i'm going to focus on one particular dive that is almost in our backyard. It is one of the most iconic dives here in new england and that is the wreck of the chester. Polling off gloucester mass. The chester polling was a coastal tanker. That sank in a brutal storm on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven. The tanker had just left everett massachusetts and was bound for newington new hampshire. That information is pretty consistent in the research but there is other conflicting information about where she had been. And what cargo she delivered for example some documentation said she had previously delivered kerosene to new jersey while others indicated that the heating oil was delivered to everett mass. I would suspect that delivery to everett mass to be more likely always interesting when you Doing research to get this type of inconsistency now the chester polling was bill in nineteen thirty four at mariners harbor new york by united dry docks incorporated it was originally in the plattsburgh sacconi somewhere along the line at also known as the mobile albany before getting renamed as the chester polling at the time of its sinking it was owned by the motor vessel polling brothers and that was number one inc. I wasn't able to find who was actually named after but obviously some member of the family. So that's a little bit of history about the ship now on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven capital captain. Bert charles burgess was in command. The forecast for that day was for thirty five mile an hour winds along with fifteen to twenty foot seas. the chester polling chester. A polling left. Everett are left everett at six thirty. A m well as we all know. Forecast can be wrong. The winds built up to fifty miles per hour and to seize goddess highs. Thirty feet facing the mounting sees captain. Burge's tried to get more stability by adding more ballast but at ten thirty a m a thirty foot waves smashed into the tanker and broke it in half the captain called for abandoning the ship. Six of the seven members of the crew were saved. I believe it was the cook jail. Derosa from providence rhode island who perished the sir. The stern section of the chester polling came to rest off easter point gloucester originally in about seventy five feet of water with the bow section sinking about four miles off of eastern point in about one hundred ninety feet of water subsequent winter. Storms move the stern section to its present location about eight hundred yards off of eastern point about ninety five feet of water. I think the bottom might be a little bit deeper than that. However the stern section of the chester polling is what some folks call hollywood wreck sitting upright and is probably the most popular wreck dive off. Cape ann as that areas known. Now i- i dove the chester polling way back in july two thousand and five. It was my fortieth dive and a double dip on. The polling was part of my advanced open water class. These dyes would constitute my deep and wreck advanced. Open water dives. At that time. I was still diving in a seven. Millimeter wetsuit with the appropriate gloves and hood. I use the standard aluminum. Eighty tank with nighthawks. Thirty two. I can still remember the anxiety that had doing. The first real wreck dive in the northeast but once in the water what an amazing dive the visibility that day was thirty feet and my max step was at eighty five. Even though it was july the water temperature on iraq was fifty degrees. It was incredible to move along the deck and reach the mid mid ship section where. The tanker broken half absolutely mesmerizing but with an aluminum. Eighty you don't get much bottom time and after about fifteen minutes we headed back to the up line and after are appropriate safety. Stop we climb back aboard the boat and got ready to do it again. Total dive time was twenty six minutes the second dive that day was just as spectacular and pretty much the same profile. Let me just say in a wetsuit. It can get pretty chilly. I didn't go back to the chester polling until august. Two thousand nine and that was my last trip there. It was my two hundred and forty ninth dive but this time i did it in a dry suit and hope to get some good video of iraq. I still dove aluminum. Eighty the dive was just as i remembered and just as exciting visibility again was thirty feet. And my max. Depth was eighty two with and the bottom temperature. That day was forty eight degrees still very cold but so much better in a dry suit again however with an aluminum eighty. You just. Don't get much bottom time especially if your task loading like shooting video so my recommendation is that if you are planning to die the polling you might want to consider a little bit bigger tank something like a steal one hundred or going to doubles. I know that i wouldn't consider going back with anything less than a steel one hundred tank. How do you get to the chester polling back. Then we use cape and divers but they closed up several years ago and recently the dive boat cape and diver to was purchased by several guys from boston. An air now operating regularly chart regular charters again became an diverse to is a forty five foot. us coastguard registered dive vessel. It is spacious and right now with limited divers on board you get plenty of room to get ready and dive but you don't get a lot of but you don't get a lot of time because you don't have a lot of time to get ready because the is only a few minutes from the dock so be prepared one thing. Different about northeast wreck diving. Is that as a diver. You need to bring all your gear that includes tanks weights everything. It's not like diving at a resort. Don't get caught short by not being prepared with all your own stuff now. Here's an interesting element. That i discovered during my research. It appears that in nineteen sixties. The chester polling was length lengthened. By maybe twenty six or so feet. That doesn't sound like much. But at the time of her sinking her length with two hundred and eighty two feet so that lengthening was about ten percent of the original ship's length could this have been a contributing factor for the ship splitting in half. I wonder so if you happen to be in the area of cape ban in gloucester massachusetts. You might wanna look up cape and diver to and head out for a double dip on the chester a
Wet Notes - 9-13-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio from monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one first up today is in another idea for diving with a purpose in one of the most recent newsletters from the coral restoration foundation the coral chronicles. There was a report that cr f. is teaming up with the atlantis. Dive resort in douma getty to offer a unique opportunity to participate in a week long program at the result in helping them build and maintain the largest coral nursery endowing. Actually the town where. Atlantis is located. The program is being sponsored by the coral restoration foundation. The loveland living planet aquarium and the meat foundation. The program runs from september twenty fourth to october. First two thousand twenty two there are planned educational sessions on coral ecology along with restoration efforts and techniques. You also conduct restoration. Dives along with some fun dies. This sounds really fascinating. One of the pictures into newsletter showed the table coral at apo island. I vividly remember that area when we dove air in two thousand nineteen there wasn't any pricing available in the article and you'll have to contact the hotel directly if you have the time and desire to dive with a purpose check out this program and market on your calendar. Long time ago. Donna and i lived in hawaii that was in the mid nineteen eighties. At that time we got to experience. What was probably one of the first while in walls in honolulu. If you're not familiar with wilem walls you can check them out. The wall was a large mural of the humpback whale on the side of a building near waikiki. It was quite impressive. Well it might not be a while and wall but if you happen to be near brant rock in mansfield massachusetts you can catch a the view of a mural of a large shark painted on the side of an old restaurant according to wicked local dot com. The mural was painted by a local artist. Shane leonard. Shane was a former football player at boston college. Who has a passion for painting and a passion for sharks. Now the muros on the side of the former arthur and patch restaurant that closed back in two thousand fifteen. The shark faces divers as they head down ocean street which is a one way street. So you can't miss it say. Shane says he likes the way shark. Show emotion. the photo is pretty impressive. there's no guarantee that the building won't be torn down. Now that is unoccupied but according to shane. Even if it doesn't survive it was worth doing so if you happen to be near mansfield mass check out the shark mural on ocean street about a month ago. Patio wear foundation announced their fourth annual aware week. Now this year it will run from september. Eighteenth through september twenty six two thousand and twenty one the whole idea behind aware week is to empower the global dive community to lead or take part in conservation activities in courses focused on local action for global impact in the past aware has focused on two elements marine debris and vulnerable marine species this year in concert with patties blueprint for ocean action. They're adding three more components. Climate change marine protected areas and coral reefs. Some of the ways. That dive shops can participate or by conducting aware classes like dive against debris coral conservation or the aware specialty. Also like us. You can become a one hundred percent aware dive centre where you provide a monthly contribution in support of the patty certifications you award. We are very proud to be one hundred percent aware. But here's something that. Patty aware foundation needs to work on. We need more notice as to win. Aware week is happening. I wasn't sure what was happening this year and our calendar filled up and we weren't able to get things scheduled as i mentioned at the top of the show. We've already created are twenty twenty two calendar and it would be nice to know when aware week twenty twenty two is happening. I also mentioned at the top to show that the re photo contest results were in and that i didn't win while scuba diving magazine. Magazine's two thousand and twenty one through the lens contest is also complete. The winners were recently released at scuba diving. Dot com and the photos will be revealed in september october special photo issue. They received one thousand seven hundred and nineteen photos from around the world. The contest categories included behavior compact camera macro and wide angle. The entries were judged on beauty originality and unique encounters. I check them out and they are spectacular. I only wish. I had the talent impatience to do that kind of work. Now if you wanna get a jump onto twenty twenty two contests they will start accepting entries january third two thousand twenty two and you can submit your photos through may thirty first two thousand and twenty two and finally we recently received our two thousand twenty two aqualung buyer's guide along with information on all the new products coming down from aqualung apex. So i thought. I'd give you a little preview on what's on the horizon. I from aqualung. They are releasing a new regulator the helix pro and the helix it looks like the helix pro is a mid range regular and i think it's replacing their core. It is a balanced first and second stage in his environmentally sealed with four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports. It was built for cold water and has the automatic closure device or a cd. lower end. helix is not environmentally sealed. And it doesn't have a cd and it's designed for warmer water. Also coming out in two thousand and twenty two is their new. Aqua fluck aqua flex men and aqua flex woman wetsuits. I think it's a redesign of their tried and true. Aqua flex line they also have a two millimeter. Free flex wetsuit now. The i one hundred computers going to come in a new color yellow and speaking of colors. They've added a number of different colors to various products including something called sand petrol red and orange as for eight packs. They also have a new regulator the xl four osha and it is billed as a totally sustainable regulator bay from post consumer waste it comes in grey or mint with some great etching. On the first stage. I suspect it's just like the xl four plus being an overbalanced diaphragm regulator with two hp and four l. p. ports. It looks pretty. Sharp and apex is releasing a new dive computer to the sx. It will be program can program up to six gases and monitor six transmitters. The has a titanium basil making it lightweight endurable but also has a color display. There's something more that require. Some more research It says it has in oh to analyze or onboard. But no to sell gotta check that out a little bit. There's a lot more out there and over time. I'll give you more updates from both aqualung and apex. Well that wraps up wet notes. Here on scuba shock. Radio for monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one
The Pervasiveness of Transgender Health Care Discrimination
"Okay joe let's dig a bit deeper into this. Recent report from the center for american progress nearly half of transgender people reported having experienced mistreatment at the hands of a medical provider in the year before the survey and that percentage is even higher for trans people of color. Give me a sense of what kinds of mistreatment people reported both to you and in this report in general yes so the report found that people reported things such as being refused care for medical providers so medical providers didn't want to give them care specifically because they were transgender or they faced verbal or physical abuse on. The report didn't detail what those two things were in particular. But the people that i spoke with said that verbal abuse could be anything from being mis gendered or dead named having providers used the wrong name and pronouns to people making comments specifically about their genitals more about their presentation of variety of things like that too. Yeah i can imagine that this kind of discrimination and mistreatment can keep people from seeking care in the future. You know whether that's not going to routine doctor visits or putting off more serious issues. Talk to me more about sort of the the longer term implications of inexperienced like this with a medical provider. Yeah so i spoke with Dallas do car the ceo of trans health northampton which is an independent trans owned and operated clinic in massachusetts and she told me that they mostly see trans patients and they really see the impacts of compounded discrimination on trans people's health so for example. She said a few months ago. A new patient had abnormal vital signs on their first visit and they were so abnormal that they had to be quickly taken to an emergency room because they were so sick so she said it's common that trans people forgo routine care. Either because they've experienced discrimination or just because they fear experiencing discrimination and so then they forego urgent care which could turn into an emergency room visit and like a really life threatening condition of some kind

Biden Announces Vaccine Plan for Employers
"Vaccine requirements just announced by president biden are not out of the blue. They're not even the first ones we had for. Covert nineteen as new york times notes today. We've already got experience with large employers starting to require vaccination at among other things. But we've learned from that experience so far. Is that the requirements work. They succeed at their goal of getting more people to get the shot last month. For example the pentagon announced that active duty military personnel would have to get vaccinated that has just been announced so far. They haven't hit a deadline for it yet. But already the proportion of active duty personnel. Who had the shot has gone from. Seventy six percent to eighty three percent. Same deal with the. Va seven weeks ago. The va told its frontline. Health workers they had to get the shot since then the number of va frontline workers who've been vaccinated has gone from seventy seven percent up to eighty two percent and still rising same deal at private sector employers like united airlines for example employees. There were told last month that they'd have until october. Twenty fifth to get vaccinated. Well s- only september tenth. Now there's still plenty of time before that deadline hits but already just since laying out that eventual requirement the majority of united airlines workers who weren't vaccinated before that announcement have since become vaccinated. We know it works and we've had plenty of other vaccine requirements throughout our history. That have also worked. But as the president indicated today we also know that republican governors and republican elected officials will sue and try to stop these new policies as if they're totally novel as if this is some brand new idea. The united states supreme court has ruled multiple times going back more than a century that it is not unconstitutional to require americans to get a vaccine. Even if a person doesn't want to in the context of a serious public health threat you can be required to be vaccinated. They ruled that way back in one thousand nine five in the context of mandatory smallpox vaccine requirement in massachusetts. They ruled that way in nineteen twenty two in the context of vaccines being required of students if they wanted to attend
Learn the History of Jacobson v. Massachusetts
"Case in the case, known as Jacobson vs Massachusetts. Jacobson. His lawyers argued that the Cambridge vaccination order was a violation of the 14th amendment rights. Which forbade the state from depriving any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law. Question then was whether the right to refuse vaccination was among those protected. Of the personal liberties, the Supreme Court rejected Jacobs argument and doubt the anti vaccination movement is stinging loss. Writing for the majority Justice John Marshall Harlan acknowledge the fundamental importance of personal freedom. But also recognize that rights of the individual in respect of his liberty may at times under the pressure of great dangers. Be subjected to such restraint to be enforced by reasonable regulation, says the safety of the general public main demand. This decision established what became known as the reasonableness test. The government had the authority to pass laws that restricted individual liberty if those restrictions, including the punishment for violating them were found by the court to be reasonable means for achieving a public good. Bottom line. There had to be some kind of real and substantial connection between the law itself and legitimate purposes. The Jacobson decision provided a powerful controversial president.

"So i've read. It takes the equivalent greenhouse gas emissions of tank of gas in your car. To produce an ounce of cannabis that seems surprisingly high. Is that accurate. Yes that is accurate in to be clear. It's a high energy efficient car not one of your trucks. That's gonna run a lot of gas. It's a pretty. We're looking at somewhere around forty miles a gallon. So i'm guessing electricity for the grow lights. is a big factor there. What else causes all those emissions. When you produce cannabis so cannabis is predominantly grown indoors. And you mentioned the grow lights create huge amount of energy consumption but what happens in addition to the lights is that these lights are really hot and so then you have to bring in a c. You have to bring in a lot of other systems that also take electricity to keep the climate perfect for growing cannabis. So this number jumped out at me. When i started reading about this cannabis. The industry's footprint. Already accounts for more than one percent of us electricity consumption and ten percent in massachusetts. How is the industry addressing those emissions. The problem right now is that no one's really thinking about this terms of how do we reduce the energy consumption. Some states are passing some laws massachusetts. For example is requiring growers to use led lights which does reduce the energy consumption. But a lot of states. Don't have these rules and the federal government overall just isn't talking about this.

Brad jones Working on this issue and we kind of agreed. We didn't care how we got but we needed to move forward and we had these sixty three hundred kits that were tested or fully tested were dna tested and we wanted to make sure that we removed any loopholes or any language that the crime lab was pointing to that said that they could not test. The kids So that's yeah so. This year's bill What is the state doing to comply. So we were -quired the crime lab to to take an accounting of the kits There are a number of kits that they Continue to claim cannot be tested. There are at least one category where that is the case that the dna evidence kid is so small that it would be exhausted There's a separate process that needs to go through. The frustrating part is we haven't been able to get an accounting of how many kits fit that profile and need to be put aside They've had eight million dollars. They've spent we believe about four million of it and they've had two additional years and having come up with a plan to test the kids that can legally be tested.

This is a staggeringly complex moment to lead a state Between one hundred year pandemic our reckoning was systemic racism income inequality the issues that you laid out what comes first in terms of issue tackle. However you want to answer that. Well i think that the imperative before us and also the good news is that we can't. We should not limit ourselves to choosing one issue to work on at a time. One because we're better than that in massachusetts we we can walk and chew gum in massachusetts at the same time. We have a ton of talent here in the commonwealth theon. We you know medical talent.

Is that when we tackle one. We are often tackling another at the same time right when we tackle our transportation infrastructure and we get ambitious about building twenty-first-century infrastructure. We are also tackling in an aggressive way climate. Change right which we do. We need to be aggressive.

People are sitting a long time in traffic. And that's time that folks would much rather be at home taking care of their Aging parents helping their kids with their homework being civically active in their communities. And so those are the those issues that are going to be a first and foremost on my priority list and these are issues where again. I'm interested in tackling them at their roots. It's been too long. That beacon hill has been saying to families That we should have just nibbling around the edges is enough or the people should need to wait another year or another term for really profound change on these issues so you ask for a specific example And i'll i'll go. I'll go to economic development and economic opportunity and justice right our our wealth gap and particularly racial loss. Gap in massachusetts is one of the largest in the nation and we have folks who have been working and working their butts off. If i can say that on the radio for year network hub and not seeing race relative to inflation. Right does a huge problem for our commonwealth things. We can do to address that one. Is you know as much education isn't an issue that i'm known for him beacon hill. It is not a silver bullet but is the single biggest lever. We have from public policy standpoint. for tackling both economic inequality and injustice and economic opportunity. Right building opportunity because if we can equip young people with that strong nation in life. day they're going to be able to do the rest of the work right. They're gonna go far and we also know that. A prepared workforce is one of the things that has hamstringing our industries in our employers in massachusetts is one of the most common frustrations that i hear from employers. Is the selling me for interrupting years. Just there's so much i want to get to.

Our implementation of student opportunity act which is something that i fought for and succeeded getting into law a five year battle right to get it into line passed in twenty nineteen.

There are about four hundred fifty beds in restrict restricted housing beds in massachusetts in a dd u the special disciplinary unit There about one hundred and twenty five beds all right so if we end restrictive housing what kind of alternatives. Or are we talking about here for prisoners who were deemed dangerous essentially. Well the report says there should be a process for handling disruptive behavior and some prisoners who are documented as dangerous and in the emphasis there on documentation can be removed from the general population of the prison for a period of time but the effort should be to figure out why they're being disruptive and to try to address those issues all right. You mentioned that the top there were eleven recommendations in this report so besides eliminating restrictive housing and eliminating the du. What else was significant that you saw in that report. I think probably most important are the recommendations to improve programming and treatment The report says correctional staff of those incarcerated and those formerly incarcerated who the investigators interviewed for this report. All agree that more programming is needed in state prisons and there needs to be a focus on treatment especially for those with substance use disorders or have we heard from the.

None of the colonies in new england served as more of a warning against the growing risk of royal control than to new hampshire new hampshire drain. The eighties was still a very small colony with a little over. Two thousand colonists. However the events of the late sixteen seventies and early sixties in new hampshire would have a dramatic impact on the entirety of the england. Going back. A bit new hampshire had been embroiled in a controversy regarding a royal rule for a few years before the emergence of the dominion. the problem. was that roger mason. The descendant of the colonies original proprietor had spent much of the sixteenth seventy s fighting to increases holdings. This included an amount of land that had become disputed between new hampshire massachusetts through a court battle. The king decided that mason had an absolute right to sell the land which he owned. The problem is that will he controlled the land. The king ruled that he did not give him the right to control the government over seeing that land in sixteen. Seventy nine charles. The second made new hampshire a royal colony and said edward cranfield over as the governor. This was a disaster for massachusetts by the time that cranfield was in the colony massachusetts expansion. Meant that the colonies had made their way into mason's territory. Massachusetts was not interested in the land itself but felt they had a right to enforce the governance over the colonists in the region the kings ruling however was that mason control the land but hill no rights over the government which meant that masons territory were massachusetts colonists. Had settled was now directly under royal rule with cranfield at its head. No cranfield was not a popular figure anywhere in new england. During his time in new hampshire he clashed with just about everybody there over. pretty much. Everything the new hampshire colonists hated him so much that at one point they ended up violently revolting. Cranfield survived the revolt and sent the ringleader edward g-o-v to england for execution. Before you go and spend too much time. Worrying about mr gov. It should be noted that he will survive this entire ordeal. He will be pardoned and he will eventually returned to new hampshire. Ask for cranfield. He is going to rule new hampshire with an iron fist. The navigation x. Were going to be applied to their fullest extent with absolutely no wiggle room allowed. Liberty of conscience was also not going to be a thing in new hampshire. Cranfield recognized that the anglican church was the official church and he determined.

The dominion of new england under edmund andrews. These reforms were by and large hated by just about everybody inside a massachusetts even amongst those colonists who were there to advise andros. They often found the new laws repugnant and we're shocked by their lack of influence over colonial affairs. It had quickly become abundantly obvious to all involved that the governor's council was not a representative assembly but was rather just there to make suggestions. If at the suggestion he would roll with the idea if he didn't he wouldn't at the end of the day. It was clear that the power in the colony rested almost entirely with him. When addressing the dominion of new england. It can at times be difficult to remember that we are not dealing with something that took place exclusively massachusetts. The dominion was a conglomeration of colonies and it extended throughout the entirety of new england. And beyond this week therefore the goal is going to be getting a better idea of what this means for everybody else. Inside of the dominion we will examine how the other colonies dealt with the arrival of andraos and the reaction to policies as we are going to see today. Despite the fact that massachusetts really is the center of the dominion world. There were a lot of colonists who were going to be part of the dominion and not live within massachusetts and they are going to have a lot of different opinions about everything that is happening for nearly all of new england. The birth of the demand meant the end of what had largely been decades of nearly independent rule. However will that on the surface wasn't going to make anybody all that happy. The demand also marked an important opportunity since its founding massachusetts had dominated the region that dominion offered the other colonies and opportunity to escape the orbit of boston.

There's the solid normal way of doing politics where you know influence people with a lot of money by lobbyists and they influence lawmakers and regulators but there's these moments. Then you can kind of feel our in one right now where.

Awesome. It happens sometimes. You know I think I think the problem on all of that. Is the expense. Like it sounds good. Sounds Great. You know they listened to the people the people shown up.

You know I didn't know if it would actually help because I. think some of them may be don't liking.

And that's part of democracy that I don't like the way. I. Love It in a way. But it's like the squeaky wheel gets the grease like. 'cause I mentioned the employees that's why the employees aren't getting any help. Because employers can't afford to show up there they can't afford they.

Then allowing caregivers later you know so just the opposite really. Smaller better being differences that in Massachusetts part of why this proposal so unique is that the operations like you're saying general half to be not for profit and not just not for profit they have to be ah cost and that doesn't even include the caregivers time.

Have such a disconnect of of you know using the resource in need including the family and stuff and I. I don't think enough people you know really push that that I of it. Yeah and trapper see all three angles right. Intrinsic Value Nuisance Ryan utilize a resource renewable resource. That can be used. I mean I push the I I make the point you know that I. I argue the any sportsman. Carrots far more about animals than any anti because we're willing to kill them for the greater good and that's that's a tough that's a tough pill this fall and that's a tough argument humint to make.

I've seen more ladies during the daytime and I've ever seen before and it's because I know people have done it but managed sure it is hard to get a coyote in the cage. I haven't I I haven't been able to do it. It seems it's unreasonable to expect that. And then you know we have the the new IOT band. which is we're hunting contests and they want to? They want to attack the season. And they'll they'll grasp every little interest so it's really really you know about fighting every little change you can but also getting out in front of it and just making sure that you know they got no dirty long air and you know I love. I don't get me wrong. I love dripping games. I love that quintessential you know Old Barn photo with all the furs lined up. You know I think that's classy.
