I am so excited to be interviewing once again the Amazing Nicholas Pearson and I'm really happy today to be talking to Nicholas about a book. We actually haven't gotten to discuss very much at crystals for Karmic healings Nicholas. Welcome how are you excellent? Thank you so much for having me on your new podcast. I'm really looking forward to this. Thanks for being here. It just for those are people who are listening. Who maybe haven't been fortunate enough to listen in on one of our interviews before I can. You just give us a little quick background of how you got started working with crystals in about your journey as an author speaker so you know I started real young as I think. Many of us do picking up rocks everywhere. I went and my grandfather really saw this love. I had for all things stone and he gave him my first piece of courts in. It's thanks to him. I have this addiction To This Day When I was in high school I you know I really rigorous kind of academic program So I was really into the science and culture in history and everything that I could. That was kind of surrounding rocks but that was not a far cry. From building into spirituality which already interest me mate seeing when it came into the world of crystals and crystal healing and the folklore around at that was like the perfect marriage of both of these avenues of interest for me so by the time he was a senior in high school. I started teaching workshops and you know it eventually got to the point where I wrote a book in now a few more and here I am and we were just talking started recording and you are on is book number six right now I am. I'm I'm writing number. Six and book number five is GonNa come next year and we're just starting to shape up all the details sexually the first time. I've gotten to to really talk publicly about book. Five which is called stones of the Goddess Crystals for the Divine Feminine. I cannot wait for that. I think that it is so needed and world right now and you always bring just the best. Freshest perspectives everything and I think it does have to do with that love of science in history that you really we've into the pages and you kind of you tell this amazing story and I always feel like I'm just in this kind of amazing classroom when I read through one of your books because it's so in depth but in a way that is totally approachable and understandable and you have a way of just shutting so much clarity on subjects. I'm really excited. I have to ask what? Kinda prompted This topic for you. Well you know it started as one of those little tiny ideas in the back of my head. That just wouldn't be quiet I have always loved. Earth-based religions and spirituality no And the idea of the sort of imbalance we have in the world between defined masculine inviting feminine is getting more and more apparent with each passing moment and when we really connect to crystals they are part and parcel of mother Earth herself. You know when we pick up our favorite piece of quartz or you know. Put on our favorite strand of beads or a beautiful passing diamond. These are the bones of the earth. Mother Jones of the goddess who gave birth to everything that we have everything that has material form so It just seemed like a really natural way to try to usher in a little bit. More awareness of the divine feminine. Elevate that so he can really reclaim that. That power for healing relied today will thank you so much for bringing this book intervene. Because I do think it's you know really strongly now. I can't wait for its release so you'll have to keep us posted but today like wanted to dive into your book. Crystals for KARMIC. He'll name which is kind of like getting this reputation. The Chris Lillian community for being one of those must have books. I really do think it's going to become a classic in the Genre and in this book you touch on things like hassling progression and Meditation Cutting Karmic Cords and Releasing Cellular Memories and working with your guides and angels and accessing the Akasha records. You really touch on so much. So I'm wondering if you can again a boil down for people listening A little bit about your view on Karmic healing. And what it really means in our lives makes sure well for starters. I think we have to kind of dive into the word Karma because there are some really charged impressions of what that means and how it influences us in in short. Our English Karma comes from Sanskrit Khartum on which means action or deed. So it's just the idea that everything we do causes ripples Those ripples are not inherently good. Or are they inherently bad? They just are and our souls use that sort of KARMIC patterning harming activity to measure our development. So as we are kind of on this evolutionary path to to reunite reclaim our energy entity We kinda sign up for different lessons to learn from incarnation to incarnation. The Great News. Is that every lesson. There is for your soul to learn you get to take pass fail. The bad news is that you're taking a pass fail until you can finally pass it. That's why sometimes they have this really persistent lessons in life And you know if we explore the idea of alternate lifetimes why we often see many themes that are from lifetime to lifetime because we have to master those before we can move on and it's it's a necessary part of our souls growth. It's like you know when you're in high school and you really hate biology. You take biology and then you take it again and you take it again That's what your souls doing with things like poverty. Or UNCONDITIONAL. Love or You know healing family relationships. Whatever that is. There's a reason we see them over and over again and one of the beautiful things about working with mineral kingdom is Generally speaking left to their own devices the only sort of KARMIC DECISION. Any crystal makes is to be present. Everything that comes after. That is an act of service and service inherently generates what we call merit which is kind of you know positive. Karma that outweighs the the negative deeds or the the? It's the kind of energy that outweighs the lessons. We have yet to learn so working with them. Automatically kind of unconditionally elevates our consciousness and helps us kind of tap into that potential to balance their own KARMIC scales.

Cities are trying to limit gas hookups in new buildings chefs are 'horrified'

"Oh no not my gas stove. I'm NPR chief. Meteorologist Paul Hunter. This is climate cash burning natural. Gas Emits about half the carbon of coal but producing and burning natural. Gas is still a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. That's why some cities are trying to limit or outright ban gas hookups for new buildings as part of their climate action plans. Minneapolis and Saint. Paul want to move away from gas appliances. But what would that mean for those who love to cook over a natural gas flame? Tom Philpot is the food and add correspondent for Mother Jones. He joins me via skype today. Hi Tom Hippo. You report the gas stoves account for only about three percent of overall household gas used. The rest comes from heating or air or water so why focus on what people cook with. I don't think people really care where they're he'd comes from right. You don't say I want natural gas heat. Electric is fine. As long as it's keeping you warm but the thing that people will the man is keeping their gas stoves and we've got to figure out a way to make people not do that. Because in order to address climate change with basically have to stop essentially all gas use. Where is this happening? Tom Whereas there a push to ban gas hookups. Well we haven't seen a push yet to remove Asoka so we're seeing so far is a push to remove gas in future buildings and so far a couple of places like Berkeley in California in a couple of other places in the bay area have done that and both New York and Los Angeles have announced plans to do it in the future and have we seen pushback in those cities. What we've seen so far is pushback from chefs. I talked to a lot of chefs for an article. I did and chefs are horrified at the idea of giving up their gas stoves. I talked to chef Chicago. He said that he would exit the business. If you had to give up his gas stove and I think that there is this clinging to the idea of seeing the flame. Come up and you know sort of calibrating. How hot cooking medium is by looking at the flame and that's really interesting. Because is that an emotional connection over cooking with gas flame or their technical reasons that it's smarter to cook with gas. Well add looked into it and it turns out you know most people when they think of cooking with gas they think of conventional electric coils at UC and they turn red turn them on right and everyone acknowledges that those are awful. The Cook with the controls not very good. So you turn it down in the coil. Stay hot for a little bit. That drives cooks crazy. But there's another technology called induction and the way that induction works is electric in it. Heats up the PAN magnetically in actually has greater control than gas in my reporting and also the you know. I've got a little induction range top that I've been experimenting with and I've concluded that most of the cleaning gas among chefs is emotional assists sort of visceral desire to see fire in their kitchen. Of course the savings with electric assumes carbon-free power sources so you could have electric power conceivably but if that power is produced from coal. That really doesn't help right. That's exactly right. But here's the thing when you turn on your guest of new flip that switch and that flame bursts you are cooking with a hundred percent fossil fuels and when you turn the switch on induction range or a regular electric range. What's going on? There is that you're getting it from the power grid and the power grid right now in. The United States is about sixty two percent fossil fuels and the other thirty eight percent is carbon. Freedom in this varies widely by region. This is just sort of the broader number so already you're sixty two percent better off in. It's literally getting greener every day. Tom Philpott food and ED correspondent for Mother Jones. Thanks for skyping with us on climate today. Thanks for having

Supreme Court greenlights "public charge" immigration rule

"But the Supreme Court has removed the judge's temporary block on the white house's public charge immigration this is so important listen to me this is a rule that steers the awarding of American green cards to be better educated younger healthier immigrants the following yes this is at the January twenty seven five four decision it is a it this is a very big win for president trouble his populist advisers partly because the court also slammed the lower court judges who impose nationwide rules in lawsuits that involve only a few local plaintiffs so the conclusion there obviously is politics is played a heavy hand and I apologize Alan Dershowitz has left the stage and he's been replaced by Adam Schiff do we care B. decision allows the thing called the public charge rule to be applied well the lower court judges say they hear arguments from advocates and critics it's the way I understand it eventually this rule may be blocked by judges black it will operate for sometime to exclude people such as unskilled chain migrants or the elderly parents of immigrants who will likely use welfare or government run healthcare programs this is the deal you know there are so many that come to this country and immediately start taking entitlements those days are at least temporarily over the president wants to go back to something ultimately in the way of sponsorships so if you're coming to this country from a foreign country much as it used to be you have to be sponsored we ran for generations like that and then things changed and loosened up but while we were running like that for years you know years and years ago nobody complained about it they thought it was the right thing to do it made all the sense in the world you know in this with this rule is also a big win for American employers whose wages are being suppressed the employers and employees and the housing costs are rising amid the business back to you know inflow of roughly one million immigrant workers you know these are consumers and renders each year that's who they turned out to be so US investors denounce denounce president trump's public charge this immigration reform which will deny them many extra consumers and workers and it will shrink the taxpayers spending on medical and welfare programs that's the big deal used by the poor the sick so it's it's a good move by the president it's a political victory for him it's a victory for the taxpayers it's a victory for this country we're not trying to be meaningless believe me we're just saying you know like every other country V. days of a free ride are over you have to come into this country and there's certain criteria for you to come in and what's wrong with that you know you have to look at these realistically from the point of view of American children disabled Americans older Americans they're going to be big winners because the rule will likely deal redirect taxpayer support from migrants who are unhealthy an old and poor to those that are American citizens in the same status in two thousand sixteen I think it was the national academies of science and and migrants the said that the migrants consume roughly about of memory here it was fifty fifty five fifty six fifty seven billion in aid of welfare entitlements each year that's a big number that's a big number that should be applied to Americans in need you have to agree to that so the pending lawsuit was filed by the democratic dominated governments in New York Connecticut Vermont as well as several pro migration groups immigration lawyers of course the pro migration groups the immigration lowers the pride to pro diversity advocates you know they just beat Donald Trump on this big time after the Supreme Court handed him his victory terrible news and undoubtedly a political opinion as an individual who's an advocate with the American immigration council adding that the supreme court's record on immigration injunctions in the trump era is completely indefensible there is no defensible arguments that hating the public charge rule is causing irreparable harm to the government none I just went through a ton this guy needs a turn on his hearing aids this is a hugely important policy the targets poor and the working class immigrants who are disproportionately from Africa the carribean in Latin America so says who'll know a Leonard who's a reporter over Mother Jones not the most right leaning organizations publication a District Court judge found in October there was a repugnant see to the American dream democratic legislators also had to get in line you know just beating the hell out of this one this real harms our children our families our communities across the country no it doesn't no it doesn't it hurts our economy in the health care of so many Californians no it doesn't hurting the economy who said this this is California's real yet beyond a shadow of a doubt he'll tell you so Attorney General hobby about Sarah we are a nation of immigrants so we will lean forward in the face of heartless attacks on working families we are a nation of immigrants immigrants that came in following certain criteria at a time when we one of immigrants here following a certain criteria and there was no problem then was there now do you have a sponsor yes I do I'm gonna be staying with the Jones family and they're going to pay my bills until I can get a job cool V. trump administration is now allowed to enforce public charge immigration

"mother jones" Discussed on The Dollop with Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds

"They're very fine. Line has actually gauging children and then whenever the kids also taking circus that was nice. It really fun strike. Yeah the kids have been traveling for four weeks now. They're very tired they walked. They walked from Philadelphia to New York. Mike and the mother Jones took three kids and for Union man to President Theodore Roosevelt's oster Bay mansion but they were stopped at the gates and told quote. The President President has nothing to do with child labour. What's not my issue? Thinking of another Roosevelt Blah. The president never responded. He's just got kid like he's got a lion head on the wall. Next like a child's hand the trophy room he never responds and then soon ecole strike in Colorado pulled a mother Jones away and the Children March back to Philadelphia and went back to work. Can we get a cab. No they lost but the mill children's drag publish publicized child labor and pressured politicians to do something thing which they didn't do it would take another thirty six years for the Federal Government banned child labour thirty six it gives America and capitalism are awesome. Yeah between Nineteen Five and nine hundred twelve. Mother Jones participated in strikes across the country and took jobs with the Socialist Party as a lecture but she was getting old and hospital and was hospitalized with pneumonia wants still. She exaggerated her age even more and now how claimed two hundred eighty thousand. She's not going to be in her eighties when she was still in her seventies okay and then she started working get minds and helping children load coal. That's the right age to start much less this ever nineteen thirteen violence broke out. During protests protests in the Kanawha Valley West Virginia the governor declared martial law and sent the state militia to arrest strikers and organizers some other Jones went and she gathered a small group and they marched or they marched on a train heading for Charleston helping to talk to the governor face them down now rumors started that she was coming with an army to assassinate the governor and bombed the Capitol building. Well no Dave. That's a big rumor papers reported. As fact the Newcastle Herald said the strikers would quote tear out the heart of the Sheriff Kill the governor and Wipe the militia off the map Those are just good journalism when mother Jones in her minors reach the train station. They were arrested. The FAIRMONT West Virginian headline quote. Mother Jones aged Agitator kept in a box car. Okay she was then taken back to Kanawha valley and jailed. She was charged with conspiracy to murder and had to appear in a military tribunal even though she was a civilian arrested and then the civilian area. Okay really bent the rules for this. Just just decided to give her a military trial and the beret. There you are now. She refused to recognize the legitimacy. The of a court martial. Sure which is I mean. That's kind of sounds like it's legally right. This court rejected that right and she was given a twenty year sentence. What for conspiracy to murder which she was never doing wow? You mentioned a miscarriage of Justice in America. Not Out of here. She was put into solitary confinement. There's that fun term again. She said quote I can raise just as much hell in jail as anywhere but twenty two days later she was found lying on a straw. Tick on the floor carrying a temperature of one hundred and four with very very rapid respiratory respiration and a constant cough mother. Jones had pneumonia so to save face. The governor secretly had mother Jones sent went to hospital to recover after she was recovered. He was GONNA put her back in solitaire but were got out in. The public was furious. People demanded her release and a Congressional Investigation Gatien within a week. A congressional committee reached a West Virginia and the industrialists. Were for a second. That can you imagine getting a congressional investigation into an anti establishment advertisement figures health within a week. Yeah I know I mean that. Just doesn't that's not even on the radar happened it all possibility. No and the industrial is under so much pressure that they were forced to negotiate with the Union and the workday. It was reduced to nine hours. Miners were allowed to buy from stores. Outside the company towns the miners are allowed to be people. It's going to be humans oak. Okay all right. Let's still enjoy your fun bucks. But Mother Jones remained in solitary confinement. She survived a second battle with ammonia and after eighty five days. They just let her go. Okay very very weird handling of this. When she arrived in New York City she was met by a mob quote shouting stamping handclapping? People through through kisses to the aged agitator and flowers at her feet she gave interviews to reporters in which you made horribly racist comments okeydokey quote but in calling calling for unity among American workers. She also made the most blatant racist comment of her long career. Complainant complaining about the gaps and the Hindus were entering the country in large numbers becoming a serious menace to labor in the western states. This is not a good. No one's no one's perfect certainly. It's it's tough. It's tough tough she slows. Yep Yep she went right back to work and headed for Colorado to organize strikers in the Colorado Coal War where she was arrested again quote without a warrant or without any suspicion of a crime. J. Mother Jones was illegally held in a dungeon engine like cell from month a letter. She wrote quote a let the nation. No the Great United States of America is now holding mother Jones incommunicado in an underground cell L. surrounded by Rats Tin Horn soldiers and other vermin the PU- public flooded. The White House would telegrams and again she was released with no charges she testified before the House Mines and Mining Committee and urged Congress to intervene in Colorado and Congress did absolutely nothing. And as we've talked about in La massacre episode many men would be killed in that strike. In what would become known as the ludlow massacre after for that people protested across the country and govern report claimed quote there was positive danger of a national revolution growing out of this Colorado strike. Now that's scary. Can you imagine the government doing something like killing someone and then saying well they were going to attack somebody. Nope can't either are not recently at least mother. Jones spoke to President Wilson but he offered his sympathies and nothing more the union eventually winning Colorado a few years later mother Jones opposed World War One and American involvement in one thousand nine hundred thousand sh made a statement opposing the nineteenth amendment quote. I have never had a vote and I have raised raised. Hell all of this country. You don't need a vote. You need convictions. And a voice. I am not a separatist in no sense of the word. Am I in favor of women's suffrage in a long life of study of these questions. I have learned that women are out of place in political work. There already is a great right responsibility upon women's shoulders that of rearing rising generations home training of the child should be their task and it is the most beautiful of tasks so I hear is what I like I said. I think that she's seeing richer. Women fighting heading for the vote while being upset that poor kids are losing their limbs shit like that so but at the same time both. Yeah Yeah Yeah you can do. So yeah she's wrong. Yes a she. Called woman. Suffrage a middle class movement at a dinner honoring her she said quote God Almighty made the woman and the Rockefeller Gang of thieves made the ladies for the idle. Rich woman. Parades her finery before the hungry and poverty stricken and is a modern inquisitor turning the thumbscrews of NBA and despair into the very vitals of those who are in reality her sisters she US Christ right. I mean she's very good with the word Lord. But you know that's how I feel about you know you see Hollywood liberals. WHO's the WHO's the actors from? WHO's the boss the Judith Light? No the no listen Milano Milano a great example example. I think today of what she's talking about his you know. Yeah there's this this they're fighting for what matters to them and yet the the astounding poverty the fact you can drive around Los Angeles and there's where we have seventy thousand homeless people or more and and and then fight it for other things like there's like this blind spot to horrific poverty that's astounding the the that is it's very interesting because people who are also liberally minded. Think that when someone who is a fellow liberal says says stuff like this is the only issue that matters or some of the rhetoric comes out these are people who have have now lost touch with what actual people go through that they're just like no you know there's this is this is the way to do. It's like I have to feed a family like there's just not room for this sort of thinking in my world there Every day I don't know why he particularly drives me crazy but every time. Donny Deutsch talks. I want to. He's fucking awful. He's the worst but he's also a liberal who has no concept of what's happening no concept and never has and people all who have never had a concept of what it's like to struggle or need help or just need safety net's there people who don't know that feeling of course they don't see the matter in that issue at all. It doesn't affect their kids. It doesn't affect their the world right right around them. Yeah of course so I think I think that's what she's talking about and I think that's what Martin Luther King talked about. That's what a lot of people what you say about homelessness to it is when does when do people become violent thinkers towards homeless versus and that is already happened. It's happening it's happening and the reason is because the second that starts to make your neighborhood not as great as it was before you want the problem I mean i. It's like bees like everybody. It's like bees. He's okay everybody save the bees beezer dying I see bees all. CB's these days states and you're GonNa Save the beezer everything Einstein said if go away we die. I had my apartment infested by bees once. You Kill Them. I mean you want you are like I don't care get the bees. I can't live in I. You know what I mean so. It's like the second that that you know there is. I guess it's like the base mother. Mother Jones wrote an autobiography in Nineteen Twenty. Three and her time laments was very off. Historians believe the book can be trusted or use as a factual reference. She celebrated her hundredth birthday. Birthday on May first nineteen thirty. Does this She died six months later on November thirtieth nineteen thirty two thirtieth probably ninety three years. They think okay. Thousands attended her memorial service in DC. She was buried where she wanted to be in amount of Illinois in the union miners cemetery. Where for a lot of miners? who have been killed are buried? She's known for the phrase pray for the dead and fight like hell for more to living sources mother Jones and the march the milk children by Penny Colman Mother Jones the most dangerous woman in America by Elliott Gorn The importance of Mother Jones Madeline Horton speeches and writings. Jones owns by Johns. And then mother John's fierce fighter for Workers Rights Judith. Pinkerton Josephson Judith. I would lose the middle name. Yeah Yeah So. She's a bad ass and its racism self is setting. The the gist of is a bummer. But you know you gotta you gotTa there's just some people you gotta go. She she did a lot for someone. Yeah and you can take the good and use the good. Hopefully it is. I mean as we know that the like unions are it's so important to have have oh turns out without unions. Your country turns into a giant fucking shit pile and again it is. They are anytime that not gets tied tightly. They are pulling on the thread again again. They need constant never constant constant constant battle to make you believe you can trust them and don't need the Union Yep and that's why people in Ayers Amazon warehouses are walking on broken feet..

Now that's scary. Can you imagine the government doing something like killing someone and then saying well they were going to attack somebody. Nope can't either are not recently at least mother. Jones spoke to President Wilson but he offered his sympathies and nothing more the union eventually winning Colorado a few years later mother Jones opposed World War One and American involvement in one thousand nine hundred thousand sh made a statement opposing the nineteenth amendment quote. I have never had a vote and I have raised raised. Hell all of this country. You don't need a vote. You need convictions. And a voice. I am not a separatist in no sense of the word. Am I in favor of women's suffrage in a long life of study of these questions. I have learned that women are out of place in political work. There already is a great right responsibility upon women's shoulders that of rearing rising generations home training of the child should be their task and it is the most beautiful of tasks so I hear is what I like I said. I think that she's seeing richer. Women fighting heading for the vote while being upset that poor kids are losing their limbs shit like that so but at the same time both. Yeah Yeah Yeah you can do. So yeah she's wrong. Yes a she. Called woman. Suffrage a middle class movement at a dinner honoring her she said quote God Almighty made the woman and the Rockefeller Gang of thieves made the ladies for the idle. Rich woman. Parades her finery before the hungry and poverty stricken and is a modern inquisitor turning the thumbscrews of NBA and despair into the very vitals of those who are in reality her sisters she US Christ right. I mean she's very good with the word Lord. But you know that's how I feel about you know you see Hollywood liberals. WHO's the WHO's the actors from? WHO's the boss the Judith Light? No the no listen Milano Milano a great example example. I think today of what she's talking about his you know. Yeah there's this this they're fighting for what matters to them and yet the the astounding poverty the fact you can drive around Los Angeles and there's where we have seventy thousand homeless people or more and and and then fight it for other things like there's like this blind spot to horrific poverty that's astounding the the that is it's very interesting because people who are also liberally minded. Think that when someone who is a fellow liberal says says stuff like this is the only issue that matters or some of the rhetoric comes out these are people who have have now lost touch with what actual people go through that they're just like no you know there's this is this is the way to do. It's like I have to feed a family like there's just not room for this sort of thinking in my world there Every day I don't know why he particularly drives me crazy but every time. Donny Deutsch talks. I want to. He's fucking awful. He's the worst but he's also a liberal who has no concept of what's happening no concept and never has and people all who have never had a concept of what it's like to struggle or need help or just need safety net's there people who don't know that feeling of course they don't see the matter in that issue at all. It doesn't affect their kids. It doesn't affect their the world right right around them. Yeah of course so I think I think that's what she's talking about and I think that's what Martin Luther King talked about. That's what a lot of people what you say about homelessness to it is when does when do people become violent thinkers towards homeless versus and that is already happened. It's happening it's happening and the reason is because the second that starts to make your neighborhood not as great as it was before you want the problem I mean i. It's like bees like everybody. It's like bees. He's okay everybody save the bees beezer dying I see bees all. CB's these days states and you're GonNa Save the beezer everything Einstein said if go away we die. I had my apartment infested by bees once. You Kill Them. I mean you want you are like I don't care get the bees. I can't live in I. You know what I mean so. It's like the second that that you know there is. I guess it's like the base mother. Mother Jones wrote an autobiography in Nineteen Twenty. Three and her time laments was very off. Historians believe the book can be trusted or use as a factual reference. She celebrated her hundredth birthday. Birthday on May first nineteen thirty. Does this She died six months later on November thirtieth nineteen thirty two thirtieth probably ninety three years. They think okay. Thousands attended her memorial service in DC. She was buried where she wanted to be in amount of Illinois in the union miners cemetery. Where for a lot of miners? who have been killed are buried? She's known for the phrase pray for the dead and fight like hell for more to living sources mother Jones and the march the milk children by Penny Colman Mother Jones the most dangerous woman in America by Elliott Gorn The importance of Mother Jones Madeline Horton speeches and writings. Jones owns by Johns. And then mother John's fierce fighter for Workers Rights Judith. Pinkerton Josephson Judith. I would lose the middle name. Yeah Yeah So. She's a bad ass and its racism self is setting. The the gist of is a bummer. But you know you gotta you gotTa there's just some people you gotta go. She she did a lot for someone. Yeah and you can take the good and use the good. Hopefully it is. I mean as we know that the like unions are it's so important to have have oh turns out without unions. Your country turns into a giant fucking shit pile and again it is. They are anytime that not gets tied tightly. They are pulling on the thread again again. They need constant never constant constant constant battle to make you believe you can trust them and don't need the Union Yep and that's why people in Ayers Amazon warehouses are walking on broken feet..

"It have hot soap and water and towels ready for you. Does she not have your supper ready for you and your clean clothes ready for you so all old thinking a little bit. She makes a good point well. Mother Jones advocated for the inclusion women. She had a contradictory stance on women's rights. She was against female suffrage interesting. Ah Okay and argued quote. What the towels accu quote? You don't need the vote to raise hell you don't well But DOT DOT DOT but wouldn't it be great to have it. What about both? Just in case. Just in case democracy existed she believes and more important to liberate the entire working class before moving on to gender issues. I think we can walk and Chew Gum but okay I. Here's what I think she's saying. I think that she's seeing middle class. Women in Upper class women fighting for what they want and not giving a shit about or peaceful splitting the movement. So that's what that's what she's and she got a really negative obviously tact for this but you see her point when she's dealing with starving people versus people who want to vote. I think that it's a very applicable to today. When like I think people who we are aware realize there is one issue and that's the only issue that matters but also let's do this other stuff? What about this stuff? Yeah that's terrible but she was attacked by and accused of being anti women's rights writes mother Jones quote. I am not anti to anything which brings freedom to my class. She thought lives. Put an important role as nurtures and motivators striking man but not as workers. She's young girls working in mills. Were being robbed and demoralized so quote working men should earn a wage that would allow him to stay at home to care for the kids. So it's a little old thinking or you know it's I get what she say right. I also think you can fight for both things. Yes but again. The upper class women are not fighting for poor people to have a decent living wage. They're fighting for the vote. Yeah so it's complicated. She wasn't great on race. This is like we're digging up early tweets. Mother Jones always preached racial inclusivity except. She was against Chinese. He's immigration good. Lord wants I can't how does that all the races should be working not shying dot the Chinese all of the races. It's not my illegit and accept those devils. It's not even like it's just funny only because that's so crazy. How do you well members? We've we've talked about this either. I mean the Chinese to look at your brother and your sister the next to you unless the Chinese than as again the leave. We've been very clear you're not welcome here but everyone else. We are all one we are all united. Is that a Chinese guy asked him go sir. are so remember. This is when you know the strikes the the railroad kingpins on in Chinese right specifically lead to fuck over the striking workers so yet again. But that's how capitalist play shirt play one against each other. That's how they keep the money but you're saying that the probability that she would not have an issue with Chinese people if they were not brought in to work to undermine the strikes probably allies. I would imagine okay so she but she did fight for the Chinese exclusion act quote when the Pacific was bringing over Chinese to break the Labor movement. The battle began there and I had a hand in that Chinese agitation. We kept it up and stop the Chinese coming over. The Union Pacific had been bringing them over in hordes and using them to break the Labor movement. Which is true? But you don't blame the Chinese people who just want jobs. The true villains are the fucking yes again again the puppetmaster. But she had a deep respect for African Americans and what they'd been through unless they liked those Chinese people unless they come for our jobs. In June of nineteen eighty three mother Jones went to a textile mill in real Philadelphia where thousands of child workers were on strike for better paying conditions. I mean the idea America they also Great Child Strike Nineteen Zero Three children on strike. Children are striking for better. Wages is shelter in nineteen zero three. I gene three children. Are Boys. Come on these. These conditions are no good. I tell Ya puberty head. Five smoke breaks. It's that form. They.

"Care my boys. I'm ninety one now thirty five. No no no no. I'm very old last week and I know I've deteriorating rapidly. Oh I just became came ninety two since we started jeeze. I'm old okay. Oh my leg harding. Legs a herd legit mental rather them. No I'm not gonNA wrap your legs Manga. Drink yeah okay. The New York World reported that she was building her own model of motherhood quote. It is a big brood. She mother's a big toil SOM troublesome brewed scattered. All over the face of the land. How does she do it by the grace of power the power of love? She loves her boys. She teaches them to love her sitcom the boys but also the mother. She knows how to make her. Children Behave Thursday. Mary leaned into the role of Mother Jones. More and more. She created a legend around herself. She kept her past obscure so people did not know who she was before she became mother Jones and Mary Jones ceased to exist. Okay on July fourth eighteen ninety seven the UM W called a nationwide strike of soft coal workers After they're asked to take a twenty percent pay-cut wow guys you twenty percent less money terrible. This jobs already Bosley awesome. You barely pay as you over work as we have nothing. I haven't stopped my offer. Okay our more work. Know what that's worse we're bullshit but now you're part eighteen. You know we've always been part of a team. We all love each other. We we hate you. But here's the deal though if you take less money you're doing more teamwork we understand the concept. It's stupid stupid. And what are they threw. It team player can't take twenty percent of our money. We don't have anything and one of you will get. You're going to be named employee of the month. Well you didn't and tell us that part and what comes with that is we put a plaque up in the coal mine. We've seen it. We've all wanted our face up there. Where in yes? That is crazy and by the way I'm sure the yes the ability actually get people to listen to these strikes or things like that is what we just completely. We no longer have that. I mean it's been happening fast. Food workers the fifteen that actually for fifteen eighteen teenagers but we need a mass walkout. Teachers have done well. Yes so tens of thousands walk in the strike but the men and their families had to be fed the house during the strike. Obviously your mother Jones went to western Pennsylvania to help from Pittsburgh daily post quote. She was given a rousing reception. She advanced to the edge judge of the platform and listen to the noisy approval of the crowd with a smile of satisfaction. Someone in the gathering shouted hats off an instant. Every head was uncovered law. Dave I need to lay down. She spoke quote. I see that liberty is not dead. This gathering is a protest test of the army of toiler is against the law by injunction. Someday this army will rise up in its might and turn the tables army of toy. lers is is fantastic. Because she's a fucking speaker. I wish that there was army of twenty dollars. She brought it during the strike. She convinced farmers to donate nate food. She organized escorts for wagons delivering supplies. Now I don't know why they'd want sex workers with them. Hey and she gave example. Yeah the wagon. The night baby. And she gave speeches to fire up workers and then once everything was set up in a place you would move onto into another other mining counties and do the same things Franchising fucking organizing all these workers sure franchising as you call it. She was getting more or more attention. Red lobster that's angle the Tennessean on September fourth 1897 Mother Jones is a brave woman. She left her home ICAGO sometime time ago to visit the scene of miners strikes but with all this Miss Jones is a womanly woman when the report called on her yesterday shed excuse herself for a few moments. It's for at the time she was engaged in curling her hair. What I just love their lectures still a woman gentlemen Ataman? I know you're getting scared. But she's still woman we wanNA see the penis. Her heart was always in in West. Virginia though where the miners had at worst. Also a lot of Irish miners there. Quote the Ma- the man or woman who would witness such scenes as I have witnessed in West Virginia when a betray God Almighty if he betrayed those people West Virginia mines were in remote areas and coal companies built company towns which we all know are awesome. Yes they they control everything the doctor. The school nurses Mayor City Council judiciary police preachers most workers and their families lived in company housing. And we're paid in SCRIP company. The money they can use a company stores this force minors on credit and then they're trapped in and the cycle of debt. I mean this is going on in places in America crazy. It was like ten fifteen years ago. There was happening in Orange Orange Farms in Florida. They still had fucking script and company stars. And it's so crazy crazy. Yeah so forces managed by credit more debt more debt companies do not let minor shop elsewhere. Even though they didn't have real money to shop elsewhere the ADS conjoined twins fan. If you figure it out still so west. Virginia's minds had the worst working conditions. Honor spent less on safety than any other state. They didn't didn't follow any laws. Scrape state law that bans scripts a ban on child labour. Bannon safety measures the blue all that off West Virginia mines had the highest death rate in the US. If worker said anything bad about the company he just be fired and replaced immediately and in Nineteen eighty-seven Asari and 1897 Mother Jones came to organize several counties Janis into whole large rallies in Charleston but armed guards stopped her so she went door to door to talk to the families. In the Union men Avella organizer was with foreign born Labor's who didn't speak much English. She communicate with them quote through a combination of broken English Hand gestures and French classics French classics. Okay I think the cops we gotta bring that bag. That's great the fucking best. You know that guy. I like is stuff but he drops out of the French classic French classics. Yeah that's the thing that's got to be. Yeah the Marx Brothers movie. She's Irish humor until jokes about company bosses to lighten the mood. She also spoke. She talked shit about priests and ministers. Who took a corporate bribes and said quote Labor must be its own religion? She traveled with a band called the mother Jones Band. That's now Dave. I've liked everything everything so far. But now I've I've found something I love. I couldn't find anything else about the mother John but Mother Jones Ban was the thing. I'M GONNA picture it as Funk based Jason Okay Three Bass player yeah thanks for the P Funk yeah okay. She held the miners contracts and claimed quote even the czar of Russia. It'd be dethroned if he attempted to enforce such tyranny on this subject so yeah that's right found now we're doing this. Russian miners began calling themselves. Mother Jones Boys. They kept pictures of her in their in their homes as if she were a patron saint there. She's one hundred ninety she wasn't she wasn't always to kind of. She scalded some miners for being cowards telling them if they afraid to fight then she would continue alone. She went wherever she was needed. Funded by the UM W and socialist. She helps striking garment workers in Chicago. Bottle washers in in Milwaukee Breweries Pittsburgh Still Workers El Paso Streetcar Operators Cow Copper miners and tons more from Boston. Herald the article on West. Virginia Strikes Nineteen to one quote so the Old Lady standing very quietly and her deep fiery voice painted a picture of a life of a minor from his boyhood ahead to his old age. It was a vivid picture. You Pity Yourself. She said but you do not pay to your brothers or you would stand together to help one another. And and then she called them to awaken their minds and as she ceased. Speaking many women looked at each other with shame faces. Almost everyone had been weeping. Wow she's fucking speaker. Jesus brought the shit. Yeah they game always relaxed again. Getting a little intense AK okay settled down in nineteen hundred mother. Jones was leading a rally from a platform when state marshals appeared in distance. Finally Swish the law. You broke that we just wrote a woman talking. It's not okay. She shouted quote Goodbye Buzz. I'm under arrest. Don't surrender nice. She was arrested at her trial. The judge lecture under what is she being arrested for. Yeah I mean they would just arrest on trumped up charges okay. So the judge lecture collections are saying quote strayed from the lines and paths which the all wise being intended her sex to pursue. Oh my Lord this Guy City maybe needs a lot of the boxes of wrong angles. Oh did I did I. Stray from the line when my family died. I'm sorry I'm sorry I made babies and and they all died and I decided to kick ass instead the idea that you're using an invisible deity to tell you about what gender means. Yeah well now come on a fake man in the sky what God God. God was very clear he says you should just be fucking. They can't get your head could fuck fuck fuck. Fuck if you're that's the whole last part of the Bible cookbook revelations if you're not fucking then you should be cooking if you're not cooking camping fucking fuck and you should be dead. That's right. He also said that there were many charities that she could engage in a lawful character character. That would be more in keeping with what we've been taught and what experience has shown to be the true sphere of womanhood. Yes thank you. You do like a charity thing. She helps babies B.'s. Raise money for cookies. Some sort of pie thing a pie charity. That's right all right. So Mother Jones listening to oven Mitts for a year. Some other Jones listen and then when he was done talking she called the judge Scab. You must have been furious. And then she told them she would do it all over again and then in very gentle voice she noted how old they both were and suggested they might be friends in death one day. Wow he was like what the hell believe. She's told him she would see him in. Hell yes in. The courtroom audience flipped out. Enjoyed it very much. Yeah West Virginia District Attorney. Reese blizzards closing statement. That's a fucking name. I'm actually a weatherman. God How can there not be weatherman yet blizzard only causing stamen unquote. There sits the most dangerous woman in America. She comes in a state where peace and Prosperity Rains Crooks Finger and twenty thousand contended attended. Men Lay down their tools and walkout.

"mother jones" Discussed on The Dollop with Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds

"This jobs already Bosley awesome. You barely pay as you over work as we have nothing. I haven't stopped my offer. Okay our more work. Know what that's worse we're bullshit but now you're part eighteen. You know we've always been part of a team. We all love each other. We we hate you. But here's the deal though if you take less money you're doing more teamwork we understand the concept. It's stupid stupid. And what are they threw. It team player can't take twenty percent of our money. We don't have anything and one of you will get. You're going to be named employee of the month. Well you didn't and tell us that part and what comes with that is we put a plaque up in the coal mine. We've seen it. We've all wanted our face up there. Where in yes? That is crazy and by the way I'm sure the yes the ability actually get people to listen to these strikes or things like that is what we just completely. We no longer have that. I mean it's been happening fast. Food workers the fifteen that actually for fifteen eighteen teenagers but we need a mass walkout. Teachers have done well. Yes so tens of thousands walk in the strike but the men and their families had to be fed the house during the strike. Obviously your mother Jones went to western Pennsylvania to help from Pittsburgh daily post quote. She was given a rousing reception. She advanced to the edge judge of the platform and listen to the noisy approval of the crowd with a smile of satisfaction. Someone in the gathering shouted hats off an instant. Every head was uncovered law. Dave I need to lay down. She spoke quote. I see that liberty is not dead. This gathering is a protest test of the army of toiler is against the law by injunction. Someday this army will rise up in its might and turn the tables army of toy. lers is is fantastic. Because she's a fucking speaker. I wish that there was army of twenty dollars. She brought it during the strike. She convinced farmers to donate nate food. She organized escorts for wagons delivering supplies. Now I don't know why they'd want sex workers with them. Hey and she gave example. Yeah the wagon. The night baby. And she gave speeches to fire up workers and then once everything was set up in a place you would move onto into another other mining counties and do the same things Franchising fucking organizing all these workers sure franchising as you call it. She was getting more or more attention. Red lobster that's angle the Tennessean on September fourth 1897 Mother Jones is a brave woman. She left her home ICAGO sometime time ago to visit the scene of miners strikes but with all this Miss Jones is a womanly woman when the report called on her yesterday shed excuse herself for a few moments. It's for at the time she was engaged in curling her hair. What I just love their lectures still a woman gentlemen Ataman? I know you're getting scared. But she's still woman we wanNA see the penis. Her heart was always in in West. Virginia though where the miners had at worst. Also a lot of Irish miners there. Quote the Ma- the man or woman who would witness such scenes as I have witnessed in West Virginia when a betray God Almighty if he betrayed those people West Virginia mines were in remote areas and coal companies built company towns which we all know are awesome. Yes they they control everything the doctor. The school nurses Mayor City Council judiciary police preachers most workers and their families lived in company housing. And we're paid in SCRIP company. The money they can use a company stores this force minors on credit and then they're trapped in and the cycle of debt. I mean this is going on in places in America crazy. It was like ten fifteen years ago. There was happening in Orange Orange Farms in Florida. They still had fucking script and company stars. And it's so crazy crazy. Yeah so forces managed by credit more debt more debt companies do not let minor shop elsewhere. Even though they didn't have real money to shop elsewhere the ADS conjoined twins fan. If you figure it out still so west. Virginia's minds had the worst working conditions. Honor spent less on safety than any other state. They didn't didn't follow any laws. Scrape state law that bans scripts a ban on child labour. Bannon safety measures the blue all that off West Virginia mines had the highest death rate in the US. If worker said anything bad about the company he just be fired and replaced immediately and in Nineteen eighty-seven Asari and 1897 Mother Jones came to organize several counties Janis into whole large rallies in Charleston but armed guards stopped her so she went door to door to talk to the families. In the Union men Avella organizer was with foreign born Labor's who didn't speak much English. She communicate with them quote through a combination of broken English Hand gestures and French classics French classics. Okay I think the cops we gotta bring that bag. That's great the fucking best. You know that guy. I like is stuff but he drops out of the French classic French classics. Yeah that's the thing that's got to be. Yeah the Marx Brothers movie. She's Irish humor until jokes about company bosses to lighten the mood. She also spoke. She talked shit about priests and ministers. Who took a corporate bribes and said quote Labor must be its own religion? She traveled with a band called the mother Jones Band. That's now Dave. I've liked everything everything so far. But now I've I've found something I love. I couldn't find anything else about the mother John but Mother Jones Ban was the thing. I'M GONNA picture it as Funk based Jason Okay Three Bass player yeah thanks for the P Funk yeah okay. She held the miners contracts and claimed quote even the czar of Russia. It'd be dethroned if he attempted to enforce such tyranny on this subject so yeah that's right found now we're doing this. Russian miners began calling themselves. Mother Jones Boys. They kept pictures of her in their in their homes as if she were a patron saint there. She's one hundred ninety she wasn't she wasn't always to kind of. She scalded some miners for being cowards telling them if they afraid to fight then she would continue alone. She went wherever she was needed. Funded by the UM W and socialist. She helps striking garment workers in Chicago. Bottle washers in in Milwaukee Breweries Pittsburgh Still Workers El Paso Streetcar Operators Cow Copper miners and tons more from Boston. Herald the article on West. Virginia Strikes Nineteen to one quote so the Old Lady standing very quietly and her deep fiery voice painted a picture of a life of a minor from his boyhood ahead to his old age.

"I mean there's plenty of now that's what that's why it is so upsetting when when you hear what you just said about like all right. So the Knights of Labor they're meeting in secret Becau- and then you get so far and then again after you know we're probably like thirty or forty years past the unions peak essentially and and it's still is like they're not that good you know what I mean. If you you told these people back then like eventually will be so misinformed that people will think this is a bad thing. All right. We'll see you later. Bye Waiters So the night started in eighteen sixty nine and quickly spread across the country in cities they accepted skilled unskilled workers from all industries and would soon as this except African Americans and women but at this point. The nights are not allowing women but Mary still volunteered and started going to meetings share. So they're long meetings. There's lots of heated debates and Mary discovered. She had a natural talent for public speaking K.. And and she started hunting. We're speaking skills while learning everything about the labor movement and we waited for Tornado just kind of come and hit her. Now within the financial panic of eighteen seventy three which up to that point is the worst depression the US are you serious you imagine. Could you imagine a time in America. Where all of these guys who have all the money are just speculating on a bunch of bullshit and everything falls apart and all the banks closed? Imagine that no yeah no so so. This is the only time it happened. Except for all the time fairy tale to me so soon one million people were unemployed. Some cities had twenty five percent unemployment. Lau so the railroad industry was hit the hardest but CEO's wanted to keep their profits. Okay shocking yeah so they it. During the depression they increase the workers days and decrease their pay which they could do. Because it's twenty five percent unemployment neither union right. We are So many workers were killed by collapsing truffles or crowded boilers because the owners want to save money. They're not fixing any it's not I like. We can't find more workers that's right when asked if he was worried. His workers were rebel against him. Railroad tycoon. Jay Gould said quote wrote. I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other. So this guy had suspenders cigar. I WANNA have working class to kill the other God damn it. I just thought of the most evil thing that I could actually say I believe I just thought of this is the value of when you get money. Your value of human existence is it evaporate. There are studies that show that as is you get more wealthy you lose empathy. Your empathy is drain. This guy has zero or he just started out as a psychopath but either way I think it's bubble base so hungry and homeless. My bath is also our go ahead. I don't think I want to go ahead. No I think I wanNA stop this eap going one legs out. Hunger and homelessness were wide spread companies. Did absolutely nothing to help. A prominent industry supporting minister said quote the necessities of the great railroad companies demanded that there should be a reduction of wages was a dollar a day not enough to buy bread. Water costs nothing. The man who cannot live on bread and water water is not fit to live. Oh my God the the the minister religion. I mean look Jesus turned water into wine. And what are you selling. Come on just Brin Water Bergman especially that's very similar to win like the breeze. The breeze get the jumbo jet. The planet is like it's wife for me to go and spread Ma massive against the part of the parisioners originals. Now can see more. God needed me two million dollars. The manner cannot live on. Bread and water is not fit to live. And that's my sermon. Today all right now Jimmy came up here. I'm going to Piss on your face. We're going to hand around the collection bins to gang. Throw something in there. No no bread. Either all your fucking bread water. We're gluten free Atkins based in eighteen. Seventy six unionist and political radicals joined forces for the first time to establish the working men's party. Okay workers or striking in Martinsburg West. Virginia you didn't need the men's in their necessarily the workers but still men's yeah though I say men isn't that what it's called working working men's party yeah man I'm sure but yeah So workers are striking in Martinsburg West. Virginia it spreads to railroads all across the country because they're stopping trains. Right right and then everyone starts walking off jobs all around the country K.. President Hayes sent federal soldiers to Pittsburgh who fired into a crowd of twenty thousand killing twenty six. Jesus this is Christ the next day riots. Seventy nine buildings one hundred. Five locomotives were destroyed. So that you're not gonNA be a bad idea. Everybody everybody yeah. The solidarity of the Working Class had a powerful effect on the Mary quote. Then there I learned in the early part of my career that Labor must bear the Cross for other sins must be the vicarious suffer for the wrong others do a little loss but I get the I mean. It doesn't make sense back in the late eighties. Laborers were required to work fourteen to sixteen hour days but they were selfish. They want to just an eight hour day. What yeah that leaves them time for life? I know the nerve. So unions obviously supported it but most of union leaders this point where immigrants so the demands were dismissed as foreign or American by the industrialists of okay. Hey wait so just because the union leaders are immigrants and most of the union workers probably but specifically the leaders ears so they were just like well. This is a foreign idea. Reggie foreigner nonsense but America America is like fourteen six in America. You work in your sleep in Chicago. Kissed Party endorsed the eight hour. 'cause at the time anarchists very radical very violent. This made politicians the businessmen and law enforcement even more reluctant to negotiate for the eight hour to sure quote employers use the cry of anarchism to kill the movement. A person who believes in an eight hour working day was an enemy to his country. A traitor anarchist shocking. How they are able to still get that message out there? Yeah the foundations of government were being not away by the anarchist rats alway always the radical radical radical. These radical people. It's yeah please opened fire at a protest at the McCormick Harvester the plant in Chicago several killed than a meeting was held in response and Haymarket Square during which a bomb went off. And then cop stop shot into the crowd. Why are they just shooting into the credit is sending a message? And then some strikers shot back seven cops and four workers were killed. Hundreds were injured and then the leaders of the mostly anarchists were arrested and hanged even though the bombing was never linked to the protesters. Sure well we don't need evidence no you don't need evidence that went off went on hang them. Newspapers Civic and religious leaders and the public blame the violence on labor unions anarchists with zero proof right and of course things have changed of course the nights a Labor didn't believe in strikes and violence silence. So they refuse to help the wrongly charged protesters okay union. That doesn't believe in strikes. It's a tough one. Not a great. They just wanted to talk shit up. What are we gonNA? I do go to work all right boys all right. Let's live though. So many workers felt betrayed by the nights nights later membership plummeted. The haymarket affair strengthened. Mary's belief in the power of numbers and militant activism. Awesome the nights. Labor went from having a million to like ten years later. Having one hundred thousand cash toaster so May Day was recognized used as a Labor holiday after this and began saying it was her birthday okay. This began a long tradition of Mary lying about her birth and age. Okay Day working in. Coal was an extremely dangerous job. Magnates like Rockefeller did everything they could to produce without spending money. Sure many workers here's were injured or died in accidents but were quickly and easily replaced. Yeah that's the cool thing now. It's the cool thing about Gyn on the job. Yes get another guy. Yeah Mother Jones as she started calling yourself. Okay Nick. Dander Rockefeller Oily John. Okay the a united mine workers of America the W was established in January eighteen ninety and Mary China up K. W. quickly had millions of members and became the largest union in the country. Part of that was due to Mary's field organizing. She spent hours talking families and groups getting to know workers and provided literature on their plans for bettering being conditions. John Brophy a young miner from Pennsylvania described his first encounter with Mary quote. She came into the mind one day and talk to us in our workplace in the vernacular vernacular of the minds. She Mind Talk Right. Yeah she like came in. She was fluent in mind. Yes someone who understood. Somebody would listened and how she got in. I don't know probably just walked in and defied anyone to stop her. When I first knew her she was in her late? Middle Age a a woman of medium height very sturdily built but not fat. Nice guys like we got the quote. I think the we got the glory need battle of other problems. She would take a drink with the boys and spoke there idiom including some pretty rough language when she was talking about the bosses. This might have been considered a little fast in ordinary women but the miners new respected her. They might think her a little queer. Perhaps it was an odd kind of work for woman woman in those days but they knew she was a good soul and a friend of those who most lack friends. So she's not going to hang out. She drank she talked. Shit right. Yeah yes yes Ma'am we're like. You're so cool. Yeah we think you're an equal you do swear like us like a guy she said fuck face is pretty great another another worker quote all this union business sounds ordinary enough but we picture organizer neither male nor a former minor but an old old woman drinking with the boys telling off color stories and talking union. Yeah so is there speaking skills that swayed many quote. Her voice was low and pleasant with great caring sharing power she didn't become shrill once you got excited instead or voice dropped in pitch and the intensity of it became something. You could almost feel physically K.. And it's hot. Hey excuse me he boys talk you. Don't think her I'd rather Mary adopted the persona of of mother. Jones okay. Her nurturing spirit gave her an appealing maternal quality to- people who she was older than she was to reinforce the the mother Jones image image. That's an inmate. Does that only happens for bars. So she wore outdated black dresses bonnets that she sewed herself itself and refer started referring to the male workers as her boys..

Her nurturing spirit gave her an appealing maternal quality to- people who she was older than she was to reinforce the the mother Jones image image. That's an inmate. Does that only happens for bars. So she wore outdated black dresses bonnets that she sewed herself itself and refer started referring to the male workers as her boys..

Climate Change: A Partisan Issue?

"On today show on joined by Ryan and Williams and Rebecca Liba Ryan Williams is executive vice president targeted victory involves Mitt. Romney's two thousand twelve campaign spokesman. He joins us from Cape Cod road. And Rebecca Liba is a climate politics and science reporter for Mother Jones. She joins us from Washington. DC Ryan want to start by framing framing climate change as a policy position within the context of the current presidential election. And obviously I think it's fair to say that this like everything else. In American politics politics are everything else in American life is going to be seen as a partisan issue doesn't strike you that there is a serious policy difference between Democrats it's and Republicans or is this just a case of the Republican seeing the Democrats saw for this therefore we must be against it. I think there's a significant policy difference. Prince obviously president trump has mocked the green new deal which is the cornerstone of the Democrats Climate Change Agenda. It was put out by some of the more liberal politicians in the party party but it's become essentially a mainstream position amongst Democratic primary voters to support this and I think you're gonNA see every Democratic presidential candidate to some degree have to support report this or else risk alienating liberal voters who make up a significant portion of their primary electorate with Republicans trump is marcus repeatedly. He's mocked the concept of climate change. And I don't think his position is essentially where a number of Republicans are I think. Republicans are beginning to move a bit on acknowledging knowledge in the climate. Change is real for many years. Most Republicans running had said. The science is disputed. I think we're getting beyond that. Debate to some extent with mainstream Republicans publican's trump not being one of them. And I think now the question is how to solve it. The Democrats are taking it pretty dramatic and far left approach with the green new deal. I think some some Republicans you're GONNA see propose more moderate solutions. You've seen Lamar. Alexander Retiring Senator from Tennessee. Come out with a plan recently. That relies on investments and technology nuclear nuclear power. So I think that's kind of an overview basically of of how the debate is shaping up now with the two parties Rebecca if that is the case that there is a gathering consensus consensus among as Ryan says mainstream Republicans that there's not much dispute about the science that climate change is a thing have the proponents of the green renew deal possibly made a mistake in the packaging because obviously there's a couple of screaming red flags that to a lot of even moderate Republican Publican. Voters agree that the Republican base doesn't necessarily reflect what the president is saying on climate change. Denial polls consistently show Oh that acceptance of climate change science and belief that it's getting worse is the majority of voters while the president's still regularly. He calls this something like a hoax. But I think what the green new deal conversation has really done. Here is broaden out. The conversation on climate change for so long talk about climate solutions was really relegated to an environmental policy into this niche topic in debate and you saw that reflected in in the primary debates in past election cycles where there was no climate change debate that even came up because it felt like this bottom tier issue for voters what the green new deal has done is brought in that out and connect climate change to other policies like economic justice distace like social injustice like healthcare and. I think it's too early to tell if this is a tactical mistake but I think you've seen the results. It's just a few months. How climate change has really soared in the Democratic Party and it's consistently now ranked as a top tier issue and God for the first time fifteen? Eighteen minutes of debate in the first two presidential debates. Royan is there a way that you can run and win on this even if you do need to win. Lean over conservative voters as Rebecca pointed out there. There has been a tendency certainly among some parts of the Democratic Party and the left elsewhere to tie climate a change into things like economic justice and social justice traditional I guess Social Democrat left wing positions. Is that a mistake. Dyke from the democratic. Party's point of view. Do you think would it make more sense for them to run on actually the economic benefits of attempting to reinvent environmental environmental policy. All of which it can be plausibly argued that there are many well. I agree with Rebecca that this new deal certainly has raised the issue of climate change to a degree that it has is not been in recent years. It's being discussed now both parties with democratic debates. And of course president trump tweets about it frequently. I don't know if social justice and other liberal concerns are the best way to build consensus amongst the broader swath of voters. It certainly something that they're going to have to discuss right now. The Democratic candidates because they're trying to win over Democratic or credit base voters to secure the nomination so it makes political sense to focus on those issues right now in a general election. I really do think the economy's the biggest issue and the main attack on the green deal. He'll anybody who signs on the green new deal is that this is a job killing economy. Busting Bill because of its price tag because of the restrictions that puts on businesses and free enterprise and I think Democrats if they signed onto the new deal which most I think will are GonNa have to counter that with an economic message so I think in general election. They need to beep prepared if they're gonNA support this to counter the narrative that this is GonNa kill jobs. They're going to have to deal with that when they get to the general election whoever the Democratic nominee is Rebecca. Do you think there is oh has been just a brutally if you like economic case for combating climate change that you can actually make prophets From renewable energies. And is it arguable. That the Democrats and broadly left wing parties elsewhere in the world have been a bit shy about making the argument. I can remember myself talking to people. Involved in Green Energy in Abu Dhabi in one of the reasons they were excited about it was not just because of the environmental benefits because they thought the United Arab Emirates wearing a fantastic position to make immense amounts of money from it for so long. Climate Change has been framed in the US Set lease as a conversation around the costs of action and what it would cost to transition the economy from fossil fuels to renewables. And I think what's changed. Actually for especially in the Democratic Party is talking about this more as an economic opportunity and not just framing this as what are the costs in. How do we pay for it? But what are the costs of inaction first of all which is a conversation that we don't often focus and I think press should definitely always work into stories about talking about paying for climate change but I also think the green new deal what what that has done is give Democrats vision for in economic opportunity here. An investment in things like infrastructure in jobs. And that does I think give voters and economic message. Here that isn't just about. We need to fight climate change because of the moral reasons but because there there are economic reasons that are affecting you in your lifetime that this kind of investment could help you right now and. That's that's the message that I think. Green new deal. Proponents are trying to make. This election is a good test for how well they will make that message. Roy and do you think there are actual political opportunities for Republicans and other conservatives in approaching climate change if for example a Republican not necessarily presidential nominee but any republican running running for office next year was to decide to make this thing and get out in front of it. Could they reach their anyway. They could take Republican voters with them. All would a plurality of that Republican base just think that candidate X. had completely lost their mind gone over the wall and might as well be working for the other team. No I think there is an opportunity especially for some blue state. Republican senators are up for reelection in two thousand sixteen. I'm thinking of People Cory Gardner senator from Colorado who faces the very challenging reelection campaign. Proposing a common sense. Bipartisan solution. To address climate change. I think could give political benefits to a Republican running blue-state sensible moderate and have the ability to bring in swing voters and potentially some Democrats as well into their coalition. I do think though to achieve that. We're going to have to put forward a plan. Somewhat in line with what Senator Alexander has talked about which is basically a plan that doesn't have government overreach doesn't have the government dictating how things are going to happen. Happen to combat climate change but rather sparking the investment and technology that would be required to address it and then relying on something that Democrats have to some degree of opposed over the years which is nuclear power. Nuclear Power does not produce carbon in the air. It's something that Republicans have supported for years. And it's something. I think that a Republican publican could use as part of a broader solution to the topic. That would not alienate conservative voters. Just as a final thought on this rebecca when Democratic candidates have talked talked about the green new deal and when they've talked about climate change in general they have made frequently an appeal to some sense of national unity. The idea that this needs to be a collective effort something that the entire nation needed to get behind do together. Does it strike you especially in these polarized type of partisan sometimes that that kind of national cohesion is still a viable option. The American people are far. Less polarized on the subject of climate change than the political elites are and there are a few areas where the political elites Congress had some areas of consensus. They're very small alike. Nuclear Power has found some bipartisan consensus carbon capture and certain technological investments. The major challenge in election in is bringing this kind of message to a popular base. And I think this is truly a climate change election. The first time that climate change is front and center her and it will be a huge test for the green new deal going forward.

"Own conglomerates to incorporate new labor policies. That's interesting that the media attention. Might you know convinced ten thousand people back East but what you really need is to for. John D. Rockefeller they get on the train. Yeah and I think that was a personal response to mother Jones's entreaties and her extremely she was such a great aurait or she was by now of course a national figure and had been for decades. We don't know he was just embarrassed. Earth is harder three sizes Sunday. Maybe maybe both things right. Maybe his little dog pulled that sleigh full of presence up from WHOVILLE custody. No one's trying to convince Mark Zuckerberg the he's he's doing something wrong. Really the best you can do is embarrass. Yeah Elon Musk you know. Make Basil's look bad by showing the awful thing that Amazon delivery delivery people people have and no longer works right but I feel like once you reach at it ruined Jewish tipping point where rockefellers already sitting in his office going is is this worth it is machine gunning workers worth it or should we just pay them two cents an hour more. They're like well Morgan. Machine getting workers. Yeah you gotta you gotTa keep up with the Joneses. Keep up with the mother Joneses. So yeah that's right In one thousand nine hundred thirty and mother other Jones did not keep a Entirely abreast of the changes in the Labor movement. You know we talked today about the Socialists. The so the rise of the socialist now in in early two thousand twenty book. You know what there's a there's a lot of of of of energy at least vocal energy directed toward the idea of socialism now as a political means and that was true of this era to American Socialists have long been sort of split into two factions. There the Social Democrats and then there are the Democratic Socialists. That seems confusing the well. They need better names they do. But but they've they've really galvanized around these two terms so we have to endure it and we have to and I'm often confused fine. The Social Democrats are the ones that are socialists. But ultimately they're Democrats this European style anti-capitalism. No they want to reform capitalism awesome. They want to they want to change the wealth inequality they want to restrict the the the concentration of capital in a in and one percent. They WANNA THEY WANNA have a more distributive than collective kind of policy not with. That's not centralization or nationalization is eight of industry you raise taxes or improve safety nets or whatever whereas Democratic Socialists. Rose Emoji want a Wants to transform the whole system they are anti-capitalist and they want to bring a kind of centralized economy economy as you said like a like a governed economy this is me and my Marxist. Dad's we get together and talk about Trotskyite ideology you and your Marxist. We're talking about the dialectic during halftime and then you you pull out your phone you check your bank account. That's right. And so this is the this the schism and Pearl for a lot of the time. There's a I think. Democratic Socialists than and Social Democrats combined enforces in to become the democratic socialist. Democrats it's an unholy alliance right and and because the names are so confusing. And and because I think even within the membership there's a lot of confusion and there's definitely more internal squabbling within a movement than a rounded because because often although democratic socialist have a much more a much pure ideology they often in America have have to make concessions that really go against the purity of their of their beliefs. It's something I did not know until twitter taught me there. You know if there's one thing that leftists dislike more than conservativism liberals anyway so so you know mother. Jones didn't navigate all of all of that to carefully and she as she got older. She made some mistakes. You always got. You've always got the old guy from the you know. The first wave wait feminists showing up or the the you know the the grandfather of Some LGBT rights movement or the Civil Rights Guy who has not kept up up and said something to Mike that she shouldn't have like this. This happens in all kinds of activists move what's mother Jones's well in nineteen thirteen officially focused in one thousand nine hundred eighty. She celebrated her one hundredth birthday. That's so unusual. Even today with nineteenth century genetics. It was especially really unusual given that she was only eighty seven years old. I never took off the church lady ways you never did and she was oh she was roundly celebrated for hundred birthday. It was a big. You know sort of national alert flip. Wilson's Geraldine turned one hundred or something. Like Geraldine there just wasn't as much in there weren't as many true thor's there wasn't as much birtherism as there. And so but she had you know she'd been sort of somewhat sidelined by the by the direction the Labor movement took you know after after some of these schisms between the Democratic Socialists in the Social Democrats. This was during the era of the rise of the American Communist Party that we saw That we saw in bold relief after World War. Two when you know when there were a list of eighty nine communists in the State Department people were actually worried about four hundred communists or however many McCarthy found what was it some number of CO number. There's different every time he said it. That's what I learned from entering Canada but W- when she died she was not a figure she wasn't into figure in scandal but she was a She she you know she had been bypassed by the time but because the labor movement continue need to evolve as as time went on her reputation post mortem. started to be re rehabilitated and She started to be recognized as a hero of the Labor movement and at some point a group of of unions got together and built her a a big sort of pink marble obelisk where she'd been buried kind of under a humble headstone take and now Kamari K.. Woman you know. She was against the she was against the vote. She was always you know but you know she has this obelisk that's flanked on either side by a By statues of Minors in mining reposes Chicago and and then her reputation continued to grow There is A. There's a holiday devoted to her now. There is yeah the to celebrate Mother Jones Day when you don't you didn't give me a card. You didn't get any flowers. Her quote celebrate. Mother's Day is that what you're talking about. Is this more mothers. Take them through it is. It's it started with mother. Mother Jones no mother's Day or it's it's what is it. It's not international. Women's Day is is that also mother Jones Day. Maybe oh no. It's it's an October it's A. It's a miners day. Okay minors which is also called Mother Jones Day because she's the center of that movement it became. It became the the the slogan of the of minors everywhere which was Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living but I think her greatest legacy was in the nineteen seventies Mother Jones magazine named themselves after her and became probably the preeminence radical magazine of at least our formative years and still around still online we periodically. I don't WanNa say going strong. Because that's what the magazine closes. It's nobody's going strong but mother Jones is still important influential. fluential voice in the left. No doubt they pray for the dead but I bet they do fight like hell for the living and that concludes kids mother. Jones entry. Seven five dot M. K..

"Get forty percents off your order. That's legacybox dot COM mm slash forty for forty percent off legacybox dot com slash forty. She had a big effect on on on the Mining Union. She showed up at a lot of those But a lot of those coal mine protests that I mean there was a in West Virginia in particular in Pennsylvania there there was a whole period where like in northern West Virginia. Most of the coal mines had were unionized but in southern West Virginia down around the Kentucky border very mountainous terrain very rural very isolated. And the the mines down there were far enough away that they hadn't been unionized yet. So miners in the north coal doing coal mining. We're getting paid read a lot more and working under better conditions than miners in the south because the the southern coal mines had a company store they had been able to keep out the rabble rouser dad and so when when labor unions tried to get in there it was the owner class sort of sought. What is a last stand kind of situation you know? It was the last redoubt and to to organize those areas would have been you know. It's the same argument argument that owners make always and they make it today. They made it here in Seattle about the fifteen dollars. An hour minimum wage that we enacted a couple years ago so the argument is always the same. What's bad for business bad for America and if we do this if we pay people two dollars an hour more if we cut working working hours to eight hours a day we will no longer be profitable and we'll have to close and everyone will lose their jobs? How do you like it now? And nowadays you can say some other place. Well you know it just means that all the business go to China and China and it's always been thus right. This is always the argument of management. It is the ball and go home. We cannot give you these these a concession. We'd love to we would but we'll have to close and you'll all be out of work and your children were we'll start your crappy job or no job and I think the history of work demonstrates that when Labour exact some of these concessions businesses generally stay open so many people even on the sensible select one at Seattle's fifteen dollars minimum wage to fail terribly. Well Yeah because there was. You know the the sensible left set well to and they're going to end up making less because they lose their tips and all this stuff and you know it was six months of people trying to figure out whether it be give tips or not. They're all those restaurant owners were like. We now include tips in the cost of the meal because blow and then then the waiters and bartenders were saying the owners are taking thirty. percent of dentists is now just like so so sometimes they would just add a surcharge. After so it wouldn't even be in the cost on the menu. You know it would be there'd be a thing of the bottom said and we add such twenty percent to every meal. It's not your choice. Yeah no tipping. But also we're not gonNA actually raise our prices because that would look bad by the turn of the century nine thousand nine hundred one mother Jones had started to crusade crusade on behalf of female workers and children in the factories. There was There were still a lot of children as part. Part of the workforce in fact something on the order of one sixth of all kids in America had a job. Wow in one thousand nine hundred one. I wish my kids had a job. Jellison has got a couple of jobs. Wade my daughter could do around here like emptying the dishwasher. Once in a while kill him. You know she knows how to do it. I taught her how to make coffee. which was my i? Think my signature move so because she she likes it because it feels like an adult thing so I can say go make coffee. And she'll make pretty halfway halfway decent cup on your neighbor on your cup. No G. Like Jim every every every cup in this house has my picture stenciled but there were you know. This was also an era of textiles and textile mill. And a lot of that work was done in by teenage girls children. The their hands could get in to the machine there little hands. It's no piercer. Uh that's right and so so. She attempted mother. Jones attempted to make this a caused CELEB- lab but she discovered that in trying to publicize it and popularized. The notion. That children shouldn't have jobs. She realized that by this point in time the capitalist intertwined network of the owner owner class meant that most millowners also were stockholders in newspapers and so none of the newspapers would cover during this period a lot of the labor agitation because it was a because it really was a sort of a backroom deal there reporters wanted to cover up at the editor's would put her on the front page. Some of the child labor stuff must be a hard sell for the working class as well. Because what you're really saying is you know maybe three of the incomes in your household should not be should not be there right. It'd be better for America if your kids were at school but it's GonNa cut your income and a half to take the kids out of the factories and the women out of the factories does has sort of paternal is work But this was also during an era of education reform so the idea the American notion the meritocratic idea that education will lift you out of pot. Kids will have a better life if I can get them out of the factory that a school right and so so there were public schools and that was that was a social movement and the idea that these children were working in factories essentially really dooming themselves to a lifetime of you know severed fingers and what mercury poisoning. While Kitwe Affluent Kids were going to school Colin and bettering their lives rushing hooper. The stick that became. That's right using their roller skate key. That became a part of the part of the language which of the organization or of the or the organizing movement. I guess once the kids are out of the factories wages. Go Up for laughed and and you know work becomes skilled work become skilled. Now this is also happening during a period when the the industrialization and the mechanization Asian of work is happening pace. A lot of these jobs are getting are obligated coming automated right. But her mother Jones's this is a when she realized that she was not getting any traction in her protests organized a march a children's crusade to to March from Philadelphia to Theodore Roosevelt's home in Oyster. Sure Bay New York President Time. It's kind of a long walk pretty long walk across New Jersey. It's no hands across America but it ends across New Jersey. It is is a long walk and during the whole and so then of course the newspapers had to cover this this giant march of of children and young girls who were marching to. Tr's house he's president. At the time she tried to get his attention and And never did get a satisfying response from him but it did now make the newspapers and and And started to stoke public opinion to To the degree that that laws began to change the eight hour workday had been instituted by this point but excuse me the to the movement to end child labor then really took hold as a result of her agitation and it was then during this sort of pre war period. We've talked about this. A lot in recent omnibuses omnibus by the I'm going to get so many letters saying hang onto by nineteen twelve nineteen. Thirteen was a time. When the into the national consensus labor unions had had if effectively become a political force in the United States? But there were still these holdouts and and this was in the cold. War's were still going on. But there was a there was an extremely galvanizing. Fight called the the the paint Creek Cabin Creek Coal Strike and Mary Era Mother Jones was a national figure so much so that she he had been denounced on the Senate floor as the most dangerous woman in America and she would bounce from protests to protest kind of like a Al Sharpton. You'd call you call her Erin. Yeah and the Pink Creek Cabin Creek. This was a situation where the miners had come down to this granular level. The minors that worked on Paint Creek AAC. We're being paid two and a half cents more than the miners on Cabin Creek. Because one group was unionized and the other one is Pennsylvania West Virginia and And you know the Baldwin Fettes Detective Agency was in there shooting people and it was a big Hullabaloo and mother Jones arrives and is arrested but the governor had declared martial law so she was arrested by the military military. POW and subjected to a court martial weight. And I'd never I didn't realize that a civilian could be court martial right now. I have a new goal like I've never thought I was eligible for court martial. Now I kind of want to do it. Well you need military law. I you need to go somewhere. Where Martial Law's declared Claire? Let them get in trouble. Getting a major city during a Godzilla movie. And I don't think I don't think there's enough to be burglar burglar something you have to do something. That that warrants a military very tribunal officer with a hat or something but she was sent to. She was sentenced to twenty years in prison. WHOA now she only? It was very symbolic right because she went. She was kind of held in in the house. Arrest Status this huge movement loves this the just loved it it and it actually resulted in some reforms. She was released after a couple of months three months. Maybe as as the Senate started to to Roman everyone recognized and I think the owners the owners recognized that they were on the losing end of this battle you know history St the arc of history bent toward justice in this instance and she you know she was released and and reform started to happen. Within the coal workday they took the money and spread of that equals just like the Bible and prophets suggests not cool. I in fact later on Not that long afterwards The coal strikes and the coal the energy of the Labor movement in the mining industry. The shifted shifted focus to Colorado. Where a lot of the the more active in the bigger minds and the and the nonunionized minds were sure? We're all in that sort of the rocky mountain states now and often. What would happen is strikers in in company towns scenarios the response from the owners would-be to fire them and kick them out? And so you have. You have a whole class of strikers who are living way out on the frontier the frontier and and all of a sudden they're fired and detectives arrive and expel them from their homes because their homes are owned by the company and then their script they don't get paid. Their script is no longer valid. Aladin the company stores that are in the middle of nowhere middle. They don't have options so in the case of a there's an incident in Ludlow Colorado where there were four thousand or more families minor families living in a tent city as part of their strike and the the The mine owners RESP- like drove through the tent city on a train. I guess it was on either side of the train tracks. You don't build your tent city on a real on the trains tracks on either side. And they they drove this armored train through there with machine guns shooting into the tents and it was you know it was mother Jones that called attention to it and actually actually John D. Rockefeller travelled out Johnny Rockfeller. who had been consistently one of the villains in all of these stories actually went out to ludlow Colorado investigated or software of firsthand? What had happened? And then he began to reform his own. own conglomerates to incorporate new labor policies. That's interesting that the media attention. Might you know convinced ten thousand people back East but what you really.

"Is there a no go zone learning the Jihad of this and she had the innovative idea that if you were going to organize workers what you needed to do or or an effective active method would be to organize their wives so it wasn't sufficient to just send or in. Some cases wasn't effect to reorganize their cupboards cupboards no no to to join protests or to protest themselves both because they were sympathetic but also because they had tremendous holdover their husbands and what their husbands were going to do or say during the day. So it was one thing for the men in a factory to haul stand there and you know huddle and rattle their broad iron out at the at the the detectives the Pinkerton detectives that were arrayed against them but there was another thing for all the wives and children in town to effectively go on strike not let their husbands go to work or they they often would stand out. What an and Bang brooms on trash can lids and say strike? Strike Strike in a lot of this guy up and fire can't open fire but also the the the what was happening here was has labor. Unions were trying to unionize industries and towns and so it wasn't just that the that these protests were against the corporate corporate fathers are the masters it was also that the protests were meant to galvanize nonunion families to join the Union. At at which point you know they would then develop a majority and have negotiating power. Read an so enlisting the wives and the children in this process Mary Jones became a kind of a power in the labor force are in the in the union force because nobody had not occurred to anyone to do it it. It doubles the turnout at your rally. Yeah that's right and this was happening against somewhat contemporaneous. Rainy Asli with the Women's suffrage movement. Do I get to do my impression of the women's suffrage lady from Republicans. Let's hear it merely soldiers and petty coats. I feel like I do this on the shell on. This crusade is for women's votes. It's good yeah I think I think that links rock-solid solid run out and watch. Mary poppins right now to get understand. Kenza impression Mary Jones was rand somewhat a foul of the suffragettes because she did not advocate for a women earning the franchise. She did not want women to vote. She was submit that generation that school of thought that said Women don't need the vote. They already kind of control the household and and as long as they control how the men vote. Why why? Why bother with all the shenanigans? It's interesting that someone who has realized what a powerful force women can be in the Labor movement meant doesn't also want to leverage that in the political arena. Her quote was. You don't need the vote to raise hell. Does she feel like Nick. So she was a hard bitten. Cigar chomping labor organizer. I just wonder what her response would be to. What if you could raise more hell with the voter? Keep keep continue to raise occurred amount of hell but could amp that hell up with the franchise. Yeah and I think they thinking culturally at the time the idea of I I mean really just strikes. You is wrong from where you come from. And then you're just inventing reasons but also on things I think people at the time were arguing whether or not populism and the extending the vote to uneducated miners was a good idea. You know hadn't been that long before that. The vote was much more restricted. That you think her working class middle you would would would fight against that you would. She's not somebody who thinks that it's dangerous for poor factory workers to vote and when she was accused accused of being anti women's votes she pushed back and said anything that uplift the the class the lower class. I'm in favor above. I just don't currently see how the women's vote. It could be one of these like yeah. This is not our battle thing you know all the LGBT activists that were not not pro gay marriage because they thought it was not the next battle. It was counterproductive. There were other things you could win and surprised at how fast it happened and I think that's I think that's true and I think maybe it also fell to her like something that was never going to happen so why get distracted is traction yet But she became a a well known person in the United States. Always turning up at at union events I'm building union membership and during this period she adopted this persona of Mother Jones she would arise. Is you think character work. She she she really did. She would kind of arrive in town and she had she had this sort of tone way where she you know. Almost Infanta L- is the man by calling them her boys. She's squeezing Keith. Since she put herself up in in the very powerful powerful position of of a loving mother that made both the Union members feel like a lot of affection for her but also made her somewhat unimpeachable on the national stage. She wasn't there wearing dungarees. And you know being a masculine figure that could have divided public opinion she. She's a nice older lady. She was and she started dressing in a very matron leeway because he's not that old he's choose not that old but she starts in a four rating her age. A very unusual thing. I think for anyone to do at any time. But he's a special forties to start describing herself as being in her sixties in order to create this personage of Mother Jones. That's great that she's working on some new sketch characters. It's pretty hot stuff right. I'm imagining looking like Dana. Carvey maybe with the WIG on or something. She's a church radio type.

Bannon delivers damaging testimony in trial of longtime Trump adviser Stone

"Then candidate Donald Trump loved that wiki leaks as he called it released emails stolen by Russian government hackers that were damaging to Hillary Clinton and what Donald Trump was repeatedly praising wikileaks. Steve Bannon was working for him as his his campaign. Chief Executive and Roger Stone was trump's informal advisor today. Steve Bannon testified under oath that Donald Trump's two thousand in sixteen campaign considered trump's longtime confidant roger stone as the quote access point and quote to wikileaks Bannon delivered delivered that explosive testimony in the ongoing trial of Roger Stone on charges. That stone lied to Congress while it was investigating Russia's attack on our election bannon told the jury quote the campaign had no official access to wikileaks or to Julian assange but Roger would be considered if we needed an access point because he had implied or told me he had a relationship with wikileaks and Julian assange. It was something I think. He would frequently mention or talk about. That goes to one of the most crucial unanswered questions about then candidate. Donald Trump did he rely on Roger Stone his longest serving get visor to get dirt on Hillary Clinton joining us now mother Jones reporter Dan Friedman who was inside the courthouse today back with Natasha Bertrand National Security correspondent four politico and an MSNBC contributor. Dan I just want to quote from your own a reporting here. You wrote an article in which you say. tump trump trump's campaign pain apparently thought it was colluding with wikileaks. Steve Bannon says trump team saw roger. Stone has access point to assange. The trump campaign apparently thought it it was colluding with wikileaks in Bannon's cross examination today stones defense attorney asked him you and the trump campaign didn't view Steve Stone Tone at the access point to wikileaks and Bannon. Says I think we did yes. That's remarkable. Yeah that's pretty striking and Bannon didn't only say that the trump campaign was receiving what he thought was inside information on wikileaks from Roger Stone. He also suggested did that. They believed that the that stone was sort of orchestrating. The release of this stolen democratic emails Bannon said that when when wikileaks released the emails the emails from Clinton campaign chairman. John Podesta in on October Seventh Twenty Sixteen Sixteen. He said he heard that stone had been involved in making that happen. And then Bannon's assistant on the same day sent stone an email that said well done just two words so they kind of thought that stone was actually helping them actively which is quite striking. What's the implication of that Dash? Oh what what is the implication of them thinking. They were working through stone with wikileaks and extensively with the Russians who had done the hacking that wikileaks wikileaks. With the the information that wikileaks had. What's the implication of that on those who believe that there was some kind of coordination between the trump campaign the Russians or the trump campaign and Julian assange? Well the implication I think would be that they tried to cheat right. One of the biggest questions is whether the when after the access. Hollywood tape dropped about twenty minutes later. wikileaks started releasing the emails from John. Podesta's Inbox and the biggest question has always been and did someone. Coordinate that close to the campaign or on the campaign directly coordinate with wikileaks and I think it was just touched upon a bit that that Bannon a and did testify to the fact that they believed that Roger Stone had this power and an access and he also said that he really felt like at the moment when they needed wikileaks most when they felt like they needed more emails to come out that were damaging to the Democrats and Hillary Clinton they felt like they could rely on on stone as that access point so I think that obviously raises a whole bunch of questions about whether they were waiting for a pivotal moment in the campaign when trump was literally at his lowest point Republicans and allies abandoned him left and right after the access. Hollywood tape came out when they actually went to stone and said Hey. Please help us out and do this because the the timing of that release after the access. Hollywood tape was extremely to put a generously coincidental. So then is there anything in that trial in which we are establishing whether weather. Someone did coordinate. That because as the TASHA said observers of this at the pre K. concurrently while it was happening or in hindsight can conclude that it was either coincidental or lucky organized and yet people who say the guy is a big talker. He wanted everybody to think he was title. Julian assange and wikileaks. But that he. The evidence isn't clear that he was

Are mass shootings really on the rise?

"This is the reason podcast and i'm your host nicoletti. The horrific mass killings in paso in dayton have understandably inspired terror in america and calls for expanded gun control predictive policing and mental health interventions designed to reduce violence but northeastern university criminologist james alan fox the leading researcher on the topic for the past thirty five years tells reason there is no evidence that we're in the midst of an epidemic of mass shootings the number of incidents. It's and casualties are simply too small to make such claims and he stresses the media coverage of shootings ends up creating a false sense that gun violence which she is at or near historic lows is ubiquitous in growing in a wide ranging interview fox explains the common characteristics of mass killers. Why violent crime involving guns has declined over the past several decades and how cable t._v. and social media contribute to a false sense of panic james alan fox. Thanks for talking to reason blecher. Let's start by defining terms. I what is the difference between a mass shooting in a mass public shooting well. Most mass shootings actually occur occur in private in private homes for example <hes> family annihilation then there's all mesh shootings that are related to a robbery or or drunk trump deal on bad or gang turf wars public mass shooting joey defined as a mass shooting where where there's essentially no real connection between the perpetrator and the victims typically <hes> carried out in a public replace as opposed to private home and it can be people they know such as co workers at a plant plant or keep be total strangers and when we're talking about mass shootings what is the number you prefer to use for the number of casualties or the number number killed. I prefer using four more people killed not including the perpetrator and that traditionally was the definition going back decades <hes> even when they i started doing research on this topic in the early nineteen eighties and it wasn't until two thousand thirteen after the sandy hook massacre that the idea came about that you know technically some shot doesn't mean that they're killed and technically mass shooting doesn't have to involve any i guess at all and so the term definition used by violence archive for example is four people shot but what's important to point out all those those although they matter and not inconsequential not the same thing as a mass killing in fact in half of the cases of mass shootings for more people shot and half of those cases no one's killed in three quarters of those cases either zero or one person's killed now the problem comes when these numbers for example we recently heard that there are more shootings mashes this year the days but these kind of statistics are reported in the aftermath of a mass killing and most americans don't <music> get the difference they fused. They think that every day we're having episode like el paso or dayton and we're not so i think it's important to distinguish the two in in my book my research. I've always held to four more people killed. I think it's clear cut death is is gonna cut whereas an injury can be reminder me shot and have very little in terms of injuries so four more people killed not including the perpetrator upgrade some databases include the perpetrators death <hes> dick and count the death count and then that that's partly a problem because if they're going back and using i mean they're they're using different standards at different times so that you really can't compare or create a pure the trend line right and then also i should point out that in two thousand and thirteen the congress passed a bill will lead to school violence which they arbitrarily defined <hes> a mass shooting is free and more people killed <hes> mother jones which is one organization station has been collecting data on mass killings mass shootings <hes> switch from four to three and were killed but didn't change didn't go back and filling the data for the earlier years so if you just take the mother jones data and put it on a graph such as n._b._c. news did last last week you see big jump after two thousand thirteen because the numbers after two thousand thirteen include incidents with three people killed and those before four yeah let me just quickly ask you to kind of psychologists a bit because both your mother jones does that in that has the effect of kind of amping up hysteria or fear of of mass shootings but donald trump also does that when he talks about crime you know why do people want to live in a world that has more crime in it rather unless they want to i think that <hes> sensational numbers large numbers for big headlines lots of readers yeah so we have heard in the in the past couple weeks <hes> the one more the one mash shooting the day that states and we seem calendars that show you how many occur each day <hes> i mean i understand that technically. It's a mass shooting but boy it. Can it misleads. Please the public into thinking there's constant danger out there and also in terms of the wanna day mass shootings most are not public. Most of them are family only related incidents. A lot of gang related is drug related incidents. Not the kind of random shootings with large death tolls that we saw in el paso and they can you quantify. I mean what's broadly speaking. What's the percentage of kind of private or mass shootings. Versus mass has public shootings well. I can tell you mass killing because clear cut data on mass killings that half of mass killings these are essentially family related episodes a guy <hes> kills his wife and all the kids for example or some other relatives so half family related and then we have another large category that felony related corrupts robberies and gang game related and so forth and only about a quarter less than a quarter actually are the public variety so up until a couple of years ago we had generally on on average about five four or five public mass killings a year <hes>. There's been a slight increase in last couple of years where it's actually reach ten in two thousand eighteen but we're still talking about the the rarest aris form of mass killing it. It's the rarest but the scariest and in your work you talk about how at least through two thousand fifteen they're going back to the early early eighties when the nut mercer kind of first place there really isn't a clear trend in the number of incidents but then you you hypothesize catholic size over the past couple of years that has actually been an increase. Is there a way or is it useful to talk about that. In terms of the increase statistically significant or is that there are so few instances even if you're almost doubling the number it's still you don't know if it's signal or noise. We don't really know that this trend will continue <music>. It's only been a couple of years. We've seen this bump up and by the way there have been other times in the past <hes> three or four decades. We've had a spike in the number of mass killings and people start declaring them epidemics and pulse sudden the epidemic dissipates so two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen so an increase in two thousand nineteen so far as well. I don't know if this trend will continue. I certainly hope not but i will tell you that part of the problem uh is there really is a contagion effect and now i'm not talking about publicity about the shooter you know and i don't scribe griped the name the shooter a show what i what it basically means that there's tremendous amount of panic country obsession with the whole idea of mass shootings shootings the majority of people thinking that they're going to be someone their families can be thick mass shootings and the more we obsess about it and the more we you see on television images of people crying and running from crime scenes it plays right into the mindset of a few people out there who would love the event in their neighborhood so we actually are contributing to it through our fear and obsession. Is it true that well the number of incidents haven't been going. It's not clear if they've been going up or it's a continuing trend but our mass shootings or mass killings. Are they becoming more for more violent or more fatal well. We do know that some of the largest that we've had occurred in the past dozen years over half the largest tempur occurred in the last years we had if you look at cases in which for example with twenty or more people were killed. We had pulse pulse in orlando last vegas. Shooting of course we had el paso and we had virginia tech <hes> sandy hook but but you know there are also cases prior in prior years we had twenty one killed at a mcdonald's in nineteen eighty four. We nineteen ninety one. We had twenty three people people killed at a at a luby's cafeteria but we have seen this increase in the large body count incidents. Now it's base. It's also hard to stash trend based on what five or six people done it in a country of three hundred thirty million. Can you talk about the <hes>. Is there a profile of shooters. The paso and dayton shooters seem on the one hand. They'll pass shoot or left a very ideological goal manifesto where he explained things he referenced other christ church killing in new zealand and berries things the dayton keller did not seem to leave any record behind neither did the vegas shooter which strength but is there are they. What what motivates mass killers and is there a clear understanding you you know that kind of can explain the whole the whole mess of people or are. They really kind of idiosyncratic well. There are some common factors that the president on every case but most cases typically the mass killer has a history of frustration and failure and disappointment in life <hes> struggling at work in relationships school and secondly and importantly they blame other people they externalize blame. Nothing's ever their fault. The wife doesn't understand them guy. The boss doesn't give them the good assignments or the recognition they deserved. They see themselves as victims of injustice if you if you think you're to blame for your own inadequacies you might take out your frustrations and misery and yourself and others <hes> and then third is that these individuals <hes> lack support systems they often time to live alone or loop with the people with whom they share their problems. They don't have others to bounce things off to help them get through the hard times and to give them a reality check when they start thinking thinking that they're the ones who mistreated and no one else's are they exclusively male ninety five percent mill. Yeah what what does that ninety percent setup ninety percent of murderers our meal. You know murder itself. It's a male dominated activity and and mass murder even more so well they the two factors there's is of course the access to means of mass murder destruction which is part of the reason for the dominance men men are much couple around guns off time under trained in having used guns go target practicing and then finally there's some precipitate which is generally something like job loss or i've been kicked out of the house which by the way off and much more impacting men guy who's who loses his job. Does he lose his income and he he tends to lose his friends because men tend to their friendships and work and also his self esteem.

People With Addictions Lured To Bogus Rehab Treatment Via 'Body Brokers'

"Naturally apparent whose child is addicted to opioids would want them in rehab and would want their insurance to cover them for as long as it takes. But for begi star Mickey son, Nick, what seemed like the best way to help him. Wasn't. He went through more rehabs than I can count. And I I could tell something wasn't right. It turns out a so-called pay. Broker was making money off her son shopping him to different rehab centers. Putting him up in hotels in between supplying him with drugs. Nick was in four rehabs in five weeks, racking up more than one hundred thousand dollars in insurance charges in that time at one point I called my insurance, and I asked them to stop paying for the rehab because it wasn't helping him. It was he was getting worse. Every time he went away Nick died of an overdose. In two thousand seventeen he was twenty three Becky star. Nikki wants more people to know this is happening, which is why she told her story to reporter. Juliet Lori for the mother Jones, podcast and magazine for nine months. Laurie investigated the loosely regulated lucrative world addiction treatment, welcome. Thank you so much. So, unfortunately, you found in your reporting that Nick's story is not at all unusual. Can you first explain how these patient brokers work? How do they find? Find and make money off addicts. Sure. Absolutely. So there's this whole sort of cottage industry that's developed in the murkier parts of the rehab world. Where broker is we'll find people in Facebook support groups at meetings, like narcotics anonymous meetings are alcoholics anonymous meetings, sometimes they'll just find people on the streets in say, southern California or Palm Beach, and they'll offer perks say free rent at a sober home or a few nights at a hotel between rehabs sometimes even cash and then at the back end the broker gets a cut of the insurance money that was paid to the rehab center. That's how they make money. Yes. Exactly. So it's very easy for patients to then fall into this cycle where they go to rehab for a few days or weeks, you know, as long as insurance will cover it to rehab collects insurance money, the broker will get a cut of that the patient will leave and relapse sometimes with. Drugs or money that the broker has given them, and then the patient goes back to rehab, and that just happens over and over and over again without the patient of a really getting better. I'm sure there are a lot of people thinking this has to be a legal rate. Yes. And in fact, it is legal just late last year. Congress passed legislation that prohibits people, namely rehabs or patient broker is from giving or receiving perks for patients that said it's relatively new legislation and also it's a federal law. So it's up to federal authorities to really enforce it. Right. So there's sort of a slow and steady move towards regulating this field and for enforcing those regulations. But in the meantime, you have a lot of patient brokering going on not every rehab center. Obviously participates in these kinds of practices. But for those that do I was amazed reading in your story. How little oversight? There has been over this industry. I mean, you mentioned California, for example, a counselor just needs to complete nine hours of orientation, and then they're they're employable as a rehab counselor. Right. Exactly. You know, often drug policy experts will point out that the basic rules of medicine don't really seem to apply to addiction treatment, you know, many rehabs don't employ a single licensed, doctor me's. Yeah. Right. Imagine going into any clinic or hospital and them saying, you know, we don't have any doctors or nurses on staff here. I mean, how did he even get like that in the first place? Why don't the rules of medicine apply to addiction treatment until very recently addiction was understood as a moral failing? So it was something that you did wrong. And you should maybe got a prison or maybe go to a beach place off the grid where you can get quote, unquote clean, and then return to your normal life. It's only very recently that we've come to appreciate that addiction is a disease, and you know, I think that's happened for a lot of reasons. Our understanding of the brain is a lot better. Certainly the face of addiction has changed as well. You know, the opioid epidemic is quite. Far whiter drug problem than previous drug epidemic in this country. So now, we're in this position where we have a historic drug epidemic. And we have this soaring demand for evidence based treatment, but addiction has really silo outside of the medical world. So what do you see could be the solution? How'd you revamp the rehab industry when it comes to the opioid epidemic? Well, that is a that's like the million dollar question. I think that it's gonna take a lot of things happening simultaneously. I do think that you need higher standards for rehabs. I do think that if you're going to be a rehab. You should probably have to have a licensed doctor on staff, you should probably have higher regulatory requirements than like nail technicians or barbershops, which is not the case currently and a lot of places one pretty critical thing that is needed right now is a place where users and their family members and loved ones can go and check out a given rehab. What are the complaints that have been filed against his place? What kind of staff does it have some sort of database like that? That would go very very
