Breaking Free of Old Habits, Addiction, and Past Traumas with Dr. Gabor Mat
"Gabor. It's a pleasure. Thank you so much for making time and joining us on the podcast. Figured nice to be here before we jump into the work on addiction and your writings and teachings which. I'm sure many of my audiences familiar with. I want to ask you actually a selfish question which is You wrote an article in an interview. I believe it was a canadian newspaper. That one of the books you would've given to your younger self was a new earth by eckhart tola it. Add the caveat that you weren't sure at the age of eighteen or nineteen or twenty that you would have actually read the book. It might have been a little bit too much at the time. I'm curious what does that mean to you. Why did you choose that. As one of the books you'd get to younger self well number of things one is When you go up when you're young you identify so much with your ideas in your body and your own history and you think that's all you are but this book takes deeper that a deeper awareness inside all of us that is more true to the essence of what we are than all thoughts ideas and doings. That'd be being caught up again so that space between who we actually are internally and The form that we've taken the history that we've had that's a wonderful realization and then of course there's this concept of the pain body The pain by the accumulated hurts grievances and national reactive patterns and negative beliefs but life has imposed on us because of way life is which is very often traumatic. That pain buddy lives within us almost as an independent entity in it and so often it takes over functioning of course in my workers a physician also known personalize the miseries that i've been to individually personally but americans a physician. I've seen so often that pain body. That accumulated ingrained. A history of pain. function is to run people's lives and someone so much of our lives is designed to either deny the pain or the run away from edge addictions coming so the whole pain body concept and then the idea that the new earth. It's a reality that we can be lies within. Ourselves is not some airy fairy concept. That's out there summer. So and also there's just something of blood that particular man card toy who that is not just empty teachings is not just. Words is a sense of being that he manifests. That does make a difference. May around it even just if you're on his words on on on the pages of a book which itself is uplifting and opens you up so it It one is the book. It was one of the books that helped to open up my consciousness. You mentioned the term space and the space between the life events and then the true essence of who you are and there's a space in between which gives us you know as i totally talks about in the book the freedom to actually step into the present. When was the first time for you that you actually noticed that. There is a space in. Between the life circumstances that you had gone through in your upbringing your addictions that later developed that you've been very open about writing about and your true essence. Look it depends on what the moment of the day you catch me in. Because it's not like i've live life for others. I'm always aware of the space. And so on i can get caught up in some pity trivial things so i don't i'm city I don't sit here are some example of somebody who's really realized their essence and can manifest it Although that i do sometimes so. I don't think there's any pill moment i i've not had one of these. Some people i know of that is big realization moments. This direct experience of a digital download. Reality or reality manifests through them. I know convey closest people have had those experiences. I can't say. I've had that expands personally so i can't give you a particular moment that i know of one of clinches of it sometimes in real-life sometimes work sometimes in the traditional ceremony. Sometimes but i can't give you a single transformational moment. I can point to and say here's what had happened. And since then i've got it

"About that place in exile in absentia. How is that. What is that process. Like for you as a writer. You immersed in that location when you are writing. So let's say you've written you've written this immersive seen about legos. And you're in miracle after that scene. Where are you when you're writing the scene. And where are you. Ati commodity senator locker. All my goodness. I was just in the sun and now it's cold. What's happening and how do you. How do you re sent yourself author that. That's that's another really good question after thinking about it. I outed that rioted. From all i think while righted is either all lights in is imagination influenced by memory. So if you you're writing what is known as Strictly realistic Realism speculative fiction. It's us do influenced by both your memory anew. Imagination at answer was very much that for me. I think in some chapters. I leaned more heavily on memory. But i would like to believe that most of it was imagination so even though i was writing about a body place familiar to me. I act to create the world's and as see it mind's eye at see an unseat as believable an immense myself in. it's. Dan put something down on the page as so so so the writing process for me. Is i newly do not starch right. And i spend a lot of time in my own head thinking about stuff. And i do not start writing until i can't see it so the the story happens. Weiner conversation happens with two people for the first time. Somebody needs a potential lover at the bus. Stop got to be able to see the scene. In my mind's eye even though hong think everything i see will end up on the page book. I have to see. So that's what it is for me. And the language of course with the way ends up on the page as another dozen entire different story because of again. It's it's it's it's influenced by by memory and imagination. I think there's something right at this concert in about. Writing is completely until the sets nigeria. While you're leaving america you kind of trick yourself into into believing. You're ninety referee few minutes of the day when you don't realize back and so you ask strange will relieve relieving as right is taking take putting yourself in a world taking us off of it. Black sunday has very. It's it's it is not a complicated read. it is the brain does not do much right. the read is able to for the story the way to the end what. The subject matter is quite difficult. Some of the experiences of the characters quite difficult to engage with most specifically sexual violence against women and they're also touches of domestic violence as well. How is it as a woman to write these scenes. How do you as a woman writer. How do you imagine that. Because i am this competition rita and i'm reading this in. What if you hours or a few minutes reading a scene in a few minutes. I want to get into your mind. How do you process yourself out of these traumatic incidents that you're writing and why was it important to write these women character. These way because black sunday begins with the many easier ways to be stupid god enables. We were not stupid girls. And that's alluding to the negotiations that women have to make the hands of predatory men and these statements are being made by young women to see the ways in this the ways in which these two sentences if like a recurring throughout the book. Stupid girls not behaving much to be dose. Who are stupid gals. What makes a stupid goal. But how does it can go find yourself in a situation where she is either considered a strictly go by our readers or she condemns herself as a stupid go. How'd you write this. How do you get yourself out of it. How do you extricate yourself from these in my opinion traumatic situation and why or what were the processes. You went through Fashion the women's agency. You know it's very difficult to talk about this thing to to to general audience because they're just some things the be overwhelming of hatred in nigeria in africa. It's like most of the frogs in cold water vice looney You talk and think that. I could only ride this. Which sought should i say clarity because at we remove wrong nigeria and when i came to america i realized that this konstanz push this constant All of the ways that men consumed continually insists on invading. Your life and your private space was not normal. It's so so so it was taking with possible for me to write it because i wasn't. I was no longer the the frog in the steady buying water. Now i have been removed from that situation. And i could remember from when i was as young as as skills are the start of the booth so when i left nigeria Was almost impossible for me to to avoid this constantly having to negotiate you whether or not you like to. If you're if you're menu any sexual market place. Then site begun to think of was following the sexual marketplace audi you negative sexual in face of unremitting patriarchy and these girls by virtue of their youth and parental abandonment. Did did did not much to talk about in other people want to frame the question about gender sexual balance as something as constant absence of content. And it's a cultural system. Actually because what is consent in in in a he is it is. It's real if you do not even have the choice to not be a sexual Then are what what he's consent and so this is so once i figured out a wild. Why the sexual marketplace will be completely different for these girls. It was easy easy easier to write. And of course it's it's it's as a writer reading this and our god wing write a book reading.

"That a. Maybe i'm just. But i i started to think about. I could have written this book. In jerem published each year Busy nigeria anyone. If i couldn't do that. Oh my god i wish i could i so. I don't think that we issued need to uproot life and reinvent yourself just for the chance to be a working writer. I still maybe that. That's why i am drawn to some eerie by adequate legal disaster about somebody looking for greener pastures abroad and coming back over to african realizing that africa arabia of everything you could want. When reading black sunday there was some phrases and expressions. That i i. It had me thinking about The audience i always when i'm reading books on unconscious of things especially books by african writers and you know the politics of race in the west having been around functioning within the literary fair you can have some ideas about the negotiation that people have to make concessions that people have to make even though the no explicit sort of pick it out when you're reading burke and so when i was reading black sunday i thought to myself look that this book is written about it. Sent is recent about legal. Small specifically A book that is set in lagos. It's has a richest and it also reaches to america and it reaches to unknown an unnamed two places but the book is predominantly set in lagos. Mostly the book that conversations are happening in those you know people are talking to each other or they're reflecting or engaging with each other and so there are certain words that are used that i think all these are not nigerian freezes right and when i think about the history of nigeria that nick. Niger has close links to britain than dose america for example referring to sweet at can candy and also to defecate as poop. So poop is a very american freeze for when i was going was allowed to put blue or you know i want to excuse myself. If you're boozy then we find euphemism for certain wet and there are certain specific words and phrases that you use that. Were very american. That jolted me out of the nigerian. Nece off the story and the geographical location of the book. What what choice did you make a conscious choice. This or were you consciously aware of the western audience at are reading the book the point i made irish ridden conscious of these linguistic misnomers. You know the phrase. I came to mind was the economics of negotiating getting punished economics. Of negotiating your juanita audience but wider audience. I'm a writer in the west knowing that the people who are going to primarily access Because option in america so the cost will go into accident. Wax are based in america. So how does that feed into your choice of what your choice of language. So that sort of politics of the subconscious in session of alien words alien freezes into once writing about localized cautious co two clash taking place. How much the publish negotiation plays into this Loaded western welcome books rhymes. Welcome to my question. And i'll take the blame for any linguistic misnomers as you say out. Take out on the blame. I think it's mayes. The americans they so america on me an identity. Something that is my book was festival edited outside america. Somebody would have picked up I'm thinking now that all those things that you you speak about can be approved. They might just be the way that that's the americanization of my brain opening that the it was just very very tiny almost insignificant pot of the book for that for that using the things. That my publishes Hacker both were wonderful. Might manitoba's great is actually british. So so i didn't after fights to i'd about The things that you know like are you sure. This is what this means is. This isn't a different way to save this and like no. This is nine hundred. Had this is what we say yes. And of course. Because he was wasn't a book where i was trying to do any big linguistic experiments. i think As hansel there wasn't so much struggle in that regard of course. That was a lot of editing responses about angrily. Can't see what's happening this scene. Have you explain it differently. Until i asked to step outside of fabulous face i think about it from somebody who was unfor- million any weapon in. I think whatever type of writing your you do. The feedback on the edited will let you know if it's something that if you watch your put down on page is actually what you think you've put down so yes i think it also depends on the publisher depending on what you what you were trying to achieve until the language of of black sunday. What's not was not my biggest payment. I don't think i to any risks actually with black sunday again. Because i the world. I'm picturing is one. Is one solid lee. A very strong Yoga and so. I just felt like he was my job to create a kind of language that was like universal but also was very very sunny influenced trying to like a literal translation. Every time someone was sakina rebel but writes in. English was very very very influenced by the by the european nest of the people who use will using english. So it wasn't it wasn't experimentalist. Really try to to just right the way i think nine zero. I mean what i remember about. She s sounding like yeah. What language is is something that i can't do. You know how the if you do when you read in books you find that you pick there is. There's a threat of things that you just can't help picking up when reading and language is one of those things on me and thank you so much being candidate and situating us in in your writing space and human space when you're writing this book but inhabiting to places and writing about a place where you are into where you are. Exiled from exit in the political who sense of the word were says that you're not there anymore right. You're writing about a place that you you're very familiar with you. Not place his home within and without its home to you writing.

We also that that. That trend on on twitter. So i'm sure.

"Is is not as much realism No fabulous speculative fiction as much as what what's emerging primary audience as a writer and this detects. Watch you What you feel the need to explain. Maybe um the way to think about it will be the white kids in the way that it's if my If my my character eating akhara olga for breakfast. I do not feel the need to explain what acura or will or to give it a difference of a name that will western audiences imagine it right and so so so it doesn't matter if my stories about A woman changes into a tiger every midnight and all that all or if it's about a woman will the giovanni side. I don't think it's it's the ad ball snus of the story that i'm talking about talking about worst comfort concerts within the story. Do you fire ties and i and i out for a very long time does need to right. And it's not even about conflict about curiosity was curiosity as a writer. Are you trying to satisfy. Because i think non western audiences would have curiosities. That are very tight. Things like setting the once you describe landscape in any kind of rec- rate again. This is just generalizing. But i feel like it's. It's something different. Between the way i will describe illegals to somebody why expect grew up in illegals or someway. Familia things i will focus on will not be demanding the every single thing that often that they just to exotified the peace ride our focus on. What's strange even in an unfamiliar city. I'm so so that's the first question. The the fact that i did not think african writers whatever the general they righted enough leverage or a comic power right now to riots in a way that without Pirates sizing non-afrikaner audiences suspect second part is a compulsion to for social commentary and our So i'm really big believe i in knowing what it is. You do well and doing that. Also i do not think that Every writer would have the african or european. I don't think every rider can ride very well. A ride uninteresting story about social issue. I think that You can actually have a political story that indians rooted in realism. If that's what he wants but for me unpredictable it was just what i found interesting to write about right now So but but i really like that. She said that you want to see more. The multiplicity of african stories is something. I'm looking forward to as well in the future. I really did not want any. African writer was reading blocks to think. Is this what. I have to write about to get published absolutely not. Please write about something. Funnier unappy a-. Not another sad and traumatizing lease do the so. So so yes. That's very very requested on. You know there's so much we cannot an entire panel discussion about this this topic at so. You're absolutely writes about the fact that we really should be leaning towards a multiplicity left becomes is right now as opposed to every single person trying to to ride social and political commentary. I think it was. Maybe i'm being selfish in In asking that question because as a reader right as one who wants to read more stories like you said stories that remind you of home stories. That are familiar stories. That sent up people who look sound or you know have textures. that are familiar with. It can get quite taxing when you read you just constantly all-consuming realism and so why i was awesome. The question about and i. I'm really interested in this. About the freedom that the publishing landscape gives african writers to be wims ical. That's what i'm looking for. A whimsical book. That has literally like. Why does this book exists. I don't know but it's a random is ridiculous. But i'm going to commission it because i like random ridiculous. That's why does that question and i don't know. Do you have any thoughts on it. I you know. I read a ellen Am is books. And i'm like this is. This is wonderful distance. Just it's just something very liberating about reading books. Like this and actually i teach. Mfa classes and this semester. I'm teaching a book on speculative fiction and It's just to say that. I may be fun of every anything that he didn't really seem like fantasy science fiction. You know. just whatever nimitz right. I haven't honestly. I haven't tried to get published a in general so i i do not know but i want to believe that age room for it's just based on some of the I think todd thompson even nitty occur for some of us writers warm seeing out their boobs gain traction in the world a game.

"Like it is that he was he was i think if copters life failed when i was writing block sunday in that i was so desperate to make room for myself. So it's not like those any. I was elting that like maybe right in literature. The love of my life admitted way way too long to write in venus. And when i was writing this book i wasn't in the best place Financially emotionally but i was still making space for myself to shoot this dream. So that's why. I really liked that song about out when you know it is you love. I know it's supposed to be like a relationship song but for me it's it's about making space for the things you love and just trusting that it will take you to wait supposed to take you to you mentioned that at the time. You're right in black sunday. Wasn't t particularly easy time for you. So the question. I wanted to ask is what we strategies and processes of managing your desire to write whilst being in a place where it seemed like you have in the freedom to give yourself to writing as you would like Yeah the process process questions of really difficult to answer because Each day something else gets your bed right. So i think that for me was just remembering my why and When you own african right in an african book your wife wouldn't be money. It won't be fame. It won't be anything else that trust people to lose. Richard will be the fact that i want touch ride. A story about about nigeria. Being african about being an african woman was a christian. That anyone will add add. Those similar experiences will pick up the book. I not feel eliminated from the subject. Because so many times you pick up a book about shelly nine jerry. I knew you know that the audience isn't you ninety around will leave through this especially orbis books that claim to be trying to humanize. The character has armed familiar. I find that very anini because nobody needs to humanize me people. I grew up with to me. I already know what we are looking for somebody to give me insides in sochi. This set of things apple growing up. Maybe this is why you are. You are today. I really think that they've got the big up between In books being published especially. Because you've got really published in america euro i want i want to read more writer saying you know what i do not care if Other audiences are comfortably that in defined the world believable or if got Themselves in this world. I want more africans. More black people injured to be able to see an offensive knows. Stygian rip to reminisce when they pick books that are talking about their lives or You know where the grew up. And and i realize that. Most people want nine nigel. Do not really know our bodies. They don't know the country leads. The feeling of dissolution wayne pickup story is supposedly set in lagos. Like i do not recognize this because it doesn't feel familiar to me at all so that was my why and i. I think that i kept me grounded. Even though wasn't it wasn't the best of times on as a person living in america. It seemed like a wish sober paternity in some way. And because you know everyone comes to this country to become a nurse or Doc sauce on your end money quickly so so. I am hoping that i begin to feel sometime soon died. It was worth it. But when i was writing it. That's i kept thinking about. Why i needed was like this. And that's that was was going through the process of writing. You talked about the desire to write the authentic legos story relatable legal story in stahl gic legal story and you also talked about the compulsion to write a book that depicts your reality so there's a lot of realism or rather i seems like you are motivated by this desire to present social realism cultural reasons. That you believe is absent in contemporary literature about nigeria. Because the bookcase session endure so we've been very specific hill as a writer. Why do you feel this compulsion to document social reality in your writing. I say that. Because i'm asking do african writers and i i use that because i'm you have identified yourself in the consonants and african writer. Do african writers have the freedom to write just about anything. I say this. Because i bought a book about recent by man and the book is just about dundee lifestyles. And he's talking about how yes dandy render so random but he had the freedom to write a random book and as a reader. I have the freedom to read a random book and just be random and eclectic in this random mechanic book but this man is white men and there is some sort of freedom that he has this idea that america has multitude of story. You can be submissive imaginative. You can be you know So my question is as an african writer. Why did you feel that compulsion to document reality in your book and do you feel that you have the freedom it cannot just be. You could also be used speaking about the african Landscape or the room given to african writers in general. Do you think that you have the freedom to write just about anything. And what are the probably of getting published when you write the when you write the absurd. Not upside in terms of institute. La the absurd in terms of a work that has not conformed to popular fictional discourse of african experiences. You know what freedom do you think you have in that respect. Okay this is this is a loaded question. Someone like speed To things so. I think what i was talking about earlier is.

Because usually in the position of continental airlines bastards asper africa. America is using the position as a land of opportunities. There was a particular dialogue. That happens that you know we used to expose this thought process. So why did you choose to use this car. This character to open up this conversation between between the astra and the continent on. What was your intention in this particular dialogue thank you that is an excellent question actively i think festival in apple organically for me Because it was just one of those things where if this conversation apple and I think i knew the character was more likely to speak about l. day feel instead of internalizing it or accident out and and also but it was. It was also something that again. Maybe just the books that i've read. But i find it missing in the way we talk about migration and even though i haven't met anyone from any luncheon was in the west that is it cost entry thinking about the opportunity costs immigration right. It's tremendous opportunity wedding travel abroad but also a cost to me in that. A lot of literature just paints it as as you get rescued like everyone weeds in a refugee camp. And then you get rescue to better live in the west which athletes were furloughed of people but survive in especially as an older immigrant. It's a kind of is another different journey on. Its own and the fact that we have this young child able to verbalize dot. I didn't think it was strange. Because also stuff that i was thinking off when i was done agent i knew my friends were thinking about or it was also connected to the trauma of the place. Your parents left you four. And so is also a competition on The post colonial legacy in african countries. Colonialism are sold year-old american axle's and we bought it at but also now generation coming along that thanks to social media. Tv and everything. I've a beginning to puncture that Colonial myths about the fact that land of equal opportunity or equal freedoms. Or or. Or you know or ilk. Equal arrigoni an analyst in so. It's more of a conversation between africans forcing us to tell each other the truth about what it's like to live in african to migrated african especially illegally if immigration on famish brayshaw up. And at the same time it just makes sense that the resentment been separated from your family will be looked up with your feelings of immigration and Addressing that is completely realistic.

And how does it open up all introduce readers to a different way of engaging and and seeing and reading black sunday. i'm so some of the things people have told me reading black sunday. That is sad song but it's it has like some moments that are just unbelievably funny. I think that is just a nice kind of like a breakup. Song is just somebody just so committed to making a laugh out of aids by any means possible and there's also the fact that you know. Justin is a wrestler as as young to read again. I one maybe that's why wrestling were so popula in townships in south africa all also even in jira was growing but does something about the dramatized violence abreast wrestling. That can be oddly comforting for children. Who grew up in places. Where real violence. Israel i mean every day violence israel so yet. So that's that's what. I was thinking when joe the song you mentioned. Wendy do names by new violence blah blah. You which is written from the perspective of a young child and it's a different take on an adventure novel. Think of western adventure novels as young people just going on on a journey of discovery. Whatever it is right to just go somewhere and then come to new things so black sunday. The book to me is a surprising story. In that you're right. The nigeria america relationship in a different way way usually when we read popular fictional contemporary african fiction. Read the story of the person who has traveled to the west and we hear that person's narrative with fun of the person's migration the process that went through getting the visa thinking preparing for the life abroad but in black sunday. We get different story of a person who just disappears. We need new names. Directly speaks to america and blackstone directly speaks to america but where we need new names. There is a preparation if you see. This young person is looking for an escape. She's telling the reader why she needs to leave this place in black sunday. There is a break on a character disappears and we're left as the readers to see how those left behind respond to this. Almost rupture of this person played an integral role in the family. What inspires right. The story received. It is your debut why this particular story. And how long had you been ruminating on it before you thought. I need to memorialize this as a book. It came from personnel place for me. First of all becomes avenue appearance and when i came to america for the first time in come with my with my child and so there was a lot of gilts any lotto fear i'm paranoid and also because when i was growing up and i think it's the same for anyone who grew up a middle class or in it almost every n african city. We knew those kids whose parents at gone with the promise to send for them and those who were lucky at appearance for them or that. They had Hind shaky and are you know. Those who didn't have done an unwanted what it looks like so i think in the beginning the story was about me. trying to remember what it was like be a child in the nineties in nato but also was me trying to write a mike you onto the page. This evil mother runs away because she suspense to make life better for self. So but when you start writing a book where you start hopefully is not where you end. Because it's a journey in itself and so the characters just to over and Like you said is an adventure story in reverse is a coming of age story on immigration is such a big question on is also answer is such a big scene in african novo than i felt like we weren't looking enough at the other side of immigration or or the species between the wait in between one. You're legal illegal all the way to. I'm actually even now working on another story. Which is Spouses the journey. That auckland's Leaves another word is is in nigeria. And it's it's a long list distance marriage. Which i will met somebody was russian was talking to me about blackstone daniel like oh my god i could relate with us. Give us even my country. We have these children were waiting for their parents. And i thought it was a very is a global story. Think for me. It was important to tell their story. But i really like to think that it was more than a story about what happens to the kids when somebody a pyramid leaves. I think is more than that is is more about what happens to a family. When they've fallen times on on the children to survive by any means necessary. It's interesting you talk about the guilt of the parents who goes to leaves. The children behind is a book written with multiple perspectives. Sir in this family there are four children. They tell their respective stories for me. The story sort of opens up when the live when they go and live with grandmother. We're gonna talk about the grandmother later. We're gonna talk about relationships later. Because i thought you did something very interesting with grandmother. I always intrigued at how you approach. The conversation between diaspora nigerian nine years. Who have lived abroad and continental nigeria. So nigerians live in nigeria. How there are some exaggerations about the quality of life abroad bus the quality of life at home and how it seemed as if one of the children was being placed in a position of having to choose between home.

Between President Trump's Border Wall And The Rio Grande Lies A 'No Man's Land'
"President trump is moving ahead with his border wall yesterday. He signaled that he wants to divert three point eight billion dollars from the Pentagon's budget and set it. Aside for border wall construction that is on top of the eleven billion dollars already planned but down on the border of the project is wreaking havoc for landowners in Texas. It's being built right. Through the middle of many properties leaving thousands of acres in a kind of no man's land between the barriers and the Rio Grande and John Burnett reports this overgrown thorn scrub is the Nether world between the United States and Mexico to the north border fence to the south the muddy meandering Rio Grande. This was Fort Brown Memorial Golf Course on the side of the historic fortification. That gave the city. Its name but with the US government. I started building border. Barriers under President George W. Bush. The entire eighteen hole course ended up on the south side of the fence. Golfers didn't like having to drive through a gate and being walled off from the rest of the city. This spit of land suddenly felt unsafe. None of us come over here. You don't feel protected in any part of the land is south of the wall. Who'll yet Garcia is former president of the University of Texas Brownsville which used to operate the skull course but when the golfers stopped coming it went bankrupt today the clubhouse shuttered and the wants manicured Greens have returned to nature. What used to be a very active place very friendly place for students and far golf team and for Winter Texans has become a deserted sad desolate. No Man's land. President trump has pledged to build more than five hundred miles of new border. Wall out west. It runs along the straight land boundary with Mexico but in Texas that line is the curvy Rio Grande and because of flooding concerns. The Wall is often built some distance away as much as a mile north of the river. The defunct Fort Brown Memorial Golf. Course is a cautionary tale landowners fear. The Wall will effectively sever their acreage from the United States leading. It abandoned lawless and unprofitable so far fifty. Five property owners have gone to court to try to block construction to hear their concerns. I headed West on military highway. First stop is the River Bend Resort and golf club where the owners were planning a major expansion worth. Millions of dollars then came the border wall. The thirty foot wall through the middle of the property kills our project completely kills our project. Jeremy Bernard is part of the family that owns river band. Nearly seven hundred Americans and Canadians from the frigid north moved down here during the winter to enjoy. Short sleeves and Margaritas Bernard Parks his golf cart on the Levy. That overlooks the curved streets. Lined with fancy mobile homes and palm trees. This is where the proposed alignment is from Border Patrol. The problem with that is seventy percent of our property is south of the Levy that includes the REC center the pool tennis courts and fifteen of eighteen holes. All of it would be cut off by the wall. The frustrating thing Bernard says is they rarely see unauthorized immigrants and drug smugglers passing through here. His family is negotiating urgently with customs and Border Protection to move the wall slightly north. So it won't slice their property in half and yet Jeremy Bernard's politics haven't changed he remains loyal to President trump. And I've got friends that disagree with me and they say how could you vote for this man? What his wall wants to tear apart your community. The main thing I tell them look the thought that I'm going to agree. One hundred percent with somebody especially a politician is just outrageous. I just have an issue with the blanket. Let's build a wall everywhere as you continue on military highway urbanized. Brownsville gives way to fields of onions. Cotton and corn here. I find Richard Roy at his farm headquarters leaning on his pickup truck. He's this rich Delta soil all of his life I'm seventy years old and It just it's GonNa ruin my lifestyle here of been living in the country. I've never lived in town and To have that wall. There's just GonNa really disturb me but drawing Nosey can't beat Washington DC so last fall. He reluctantly SOLD THE GOVERNMENT. Aruban of land so they could erect the wall across his crop. Rose like Jeremy Bernard Richard draw supports trump and his all four increasing border security. He just doesn't want the wall in his property. I told him you know this stupid wall is going to have lights on it. It's GONNA be like being in prison while lights and everything and I said You put them lives up on me on my house. You know more. Shoot him out. Of course I have time to calm down. Joy has seen what's happened over the past decade to Riverside land that's isolated by the border wall weeds. Takeover and people are afraid to go there anymore on his farm. He's worried that bad hombres will cross the river from Mexico and threatened his farm hands. He says the wall seeds has property down by the river to Mexico. Like Tola Board. Joe I said look you know goodwill how you build a wall. All agents will done trolling up and down the law. They're never going to go on down to the river anymore. He yield back into the Rio. Grande is the first line of Defense Baloney. You just wait a few years. I shared these misgivings with C. Bp a spokesman responded the Border Patrol will continue to operate on both sides of the barrier to include the riverine environment further. They'll install electric gates with security codes to give landowners access to the south side of the wall. My Westward John. Across the valley terminates at the rustic campground of the Cavazos family. Fred is seventy and in a wheelchair. They were race here. My Dad taught me how to fish. Here OUTTA. Get a shovel and dig worms. He says they run a few cows but the main income is from tenants who built weekend shanties along the water's edge. A lot of time on boats a lot of own jet skis so they come down with us and sausages Saturdays and Sundays and barbecue. It's a hundred four and five so they feel great where you're out there jet skiing. The government wants to put the wall and a wide patrol zone. Along the north end of their property. Cavazos worries it will drive away. His tenants who may not want to be walled off from the rest of Texas like many large families down here the Cavazos clan is split someone to accept what they think is a generous offer from the government. Nearly four hundred thousand dollars for SIX ACRES BUT COUSIN. Ray who seventy-five wonders what happens? If one day they put the land up for sale. The problem is the devaluation of the property. Nobody wants to buy property. That's on the Riverside of the wall. So this is what the fight is going to be about ray. Infrared are fighting the government in federal court. They want to drag it out until election day hoping that the Democrat wins the White House and halts the border wall
NFL explains why there was no pass interference called on play that eliminated Saints
"We're going to. We're going to make football show because that's what people like over the weekend. Everybody who listens to this show presumably watched all of the football games or most of all of the football guess. He missed the playoffs playoff in Hawaii. The yes I missed that one Justin Thomas I saw this morning. I thought it was really nice but I missed it last last night because it came on pretty late We're going to do you because the ratings of the NFL up all across the board because the interest in the NFL is up all across the board and because each of those those games was quite interesting in its own way including terrible terrible. Coaching decisions by both coaches in the Houston Buffalo Game. We're going to talk about out this for an extended period of time in the first segment. Michael Wilbon will join us in second segment. We're GONNA limit news and go right to old guy where we're going to talk about the Golden Globes and the matchups for next week. That's what we're going to the show probably the same length. But I WANNA do it if you don't mind I WANNA do it that way also. WanNa thank Clarendon Tola for Baking Cooke's for Claire Gary Braun Chris Cillizza Michael Kornheiser Nigel. Who has nothing to do except for on the boards because we're not sleep keeps pressing one button? So He's been news cancelled forever now just today. If you don't mind especially the best thing is not gonNa work out just I you know I'm old and I thought why not like Michael said to me last night we were talking about the possibility of of Michael. Are you shaking your head. You don't want me to. Would you go ahead down the fourth wall. People talking about Mike Lees. I won't share this on air dead. Yeah go ahead Michael Says Cillizza how how do we get rid of him. Nicely to the change in the show today. I let's start. Let's start with yesterday's which is going to go backwards. I'm just can start with the Minnesota game because of all the games the end result of that game is the most surprises so like I said on the PTI show on Friday. I'll take Tennessee. Plus Five Live and a half all day and all night doesn't mean I think they're gonNA win. I'm GONNA take those points New Orleans. Losing at home in overtime to Minnesota is stunning drew. BREES did not have a great game he had a very bad fumble in drive. That could have changed in the fourth quarter changed. Everything around. He got picked never gets picked. I mean he did not have a great game. There are three quarterbacks forty years old and up over the weekend and they all lost. We'll get to that but even with brees not having a great game. They tied the game. They got into overtime there at home and they yielded the first drive. That's it see around. see you around Kirk cousins who. I am extraordinarily critical of on a regular basis was very good and kirk cousins to Adam Adam field and had to make up for fumble early. You know but I don't feel did that pass. That wins the game. Now there's a third downplay because what you don't want to do is have to kick a field goal because because you don't want to give New Orleans the ball on the one. Yeah you don't WanNa do that. On the third downplay they go in the left. Hand top corner of the end zone to Kyle Rudolph is about twelve aid aide just like that and by the way quickly give cousins credit. That was a terrible snap. The snap his way to his right he basically knocks it with his right hand. Quickly gathers it because you it's all timing and throws a faith throws the fate and Rudolf reaches up. He's much taller than defender and he gets it in the process of doing that he pushes off. There's no question he pushes off. Does it rise to the level of offensive pass interference for me in a playoff game and I have to give context here. New Orleans has tragically lost in Hoon's replay off games in a row cheated in one cheated by by their own stupidity in another with defensive back and I mean I honestly either call offense a pass. Interference would have so I did not I mean I I watched the play. Did Not in real time necessarily see the wrangle back is in front of your Reina Vision Right. So they call it a touchdown a apparently appropriately to me and then you see the replay and and I did think to myself. Like oh my goodness could they. Could they possibly possibly overturn this. I mean it. And we've all seen their explanation and said there was handed both sides. It didn't rise to level pass interference. I mean I'm sorry by no objective measure to me was that not pass interference and in fact is in fact a couple hours later they called the same thing on hollister tight end from. I'm from Seattle and on much less meaningful circumstance but I mean I just felt like the league. We're getting out of the way this one. I mean there's no way every time it's the UNCANNY situational right. We know this. It's like it's like a Games are raft. Basketball game is reverend different right. The game is rough differently in the last thirty seconds than it it is and that's situationally you cannot. I don't think when I watched it and I watched the replay. He pushed off a little bit. Did it it was. It did not to me anyway. I think I disagree with you. Guys did not to me look agree. Gis I think Rudolph was bigger. The defensive back had his back this business. Being that push back. Chris Locate fully extends. I think it was his left arm. Yeah if he is allowed to do that he catches that ball. A hundred injured time. He cannot be defended. Unless you play. Just there's so many calls they show throughout the game when they every time on a pass Where not every time? Seventy percent of the time on a pattern when they show the slow motion the other guy. The the DB is has his arm wrapped around around the guy's waist or is holding. His arm gets there. I just think it's very subjective. That's fine but I agree with that but I would also agree that the saints should not be shafted million better cost the saints again. Plenty of opportunities it. Certainly when you were watching the game I ah in the flow of it and when tased him hill like in three straight plays a three-stroke they score a touchdown. Now it's twenty seventeen right gary to have that right was twenty. I needed to twenty twenty twenty seven hundred twenty and then they get back they get it back and take some hill like three times. Basically the the one where he runs to the left where it looks like. He's tackled and he spins runs for thirty arts. Well they're definitely going to win then. And then brees fumbled. I mean it was very i. I lost fumbling. The ball get hit. No sort of this is arm gets hit a little bit. I'm sorry I'm busy trying to reconstruct your show on the fly without telling you so allowed back in so so tension is good for the show is for Knuckleballer To to to tie it up. What was the forty nine yard or from lots? They're kicking it through. Yeah man that went about now three feet off the ground and easier kick at the end of the first half a ball Games kick forty something already three but that's an easier kick so that game. Let me say one other thing about that game as someone who was a kirk cousins fan when he was here. I'm not going to criticize Kirk. Cousins played fine. He was he was great in that last. Drive the drive. If they lose the haters are going to look at that stat line that would have been seventeen of twenty nine hundred and ninety yards picked and he didn't do anything bad. Oh he had a good game and the pass was just

That's all obviously taught to watch that you get yeah but I mean after they saw again in she's got really really put me in a position where they like. Hey you know I'm the real deal give give me the money out of the again. I yes and you had the win over Josie Aldo to get this title shot. Do you see the photos of him at one. Thirty five while he's cutting down to one thirty five. And what do you make of this decision on his part I I've done I mean I really don't know. Eighty held a lot four or five weeks ago and they look bad they look really bad and I was five. I looked like he was cutting ready. It looked like he was drawn. and He's already literally been in the SONA making why I don't know why it should be so drawn that early. I know he's losing fat but I don't know why the war was going on. What did I don't know how like tides Rod? What's going to be honest with Yeah Chelsea? She Sophie going into that fought again. Barrages a tough I actually say Aldo winning a lot of people talion a quick and foss and you know he's still got at again. The games evolved in our really use that against him people not everyone understands. There's a lot of people that do still things that other does really well that I think morale is you will get to that. So if he's healthy who'd be dangerous but auto gotta be healthy do do you know what fascinates me about your title fight on on Saturday Alex. You're five foot six. He's five foot eleven five inches taller. However you have a longer longer reach your reach two and a half inches longer than his? So how's that going to play out on. You're you're no stranger to the fighting taller people but did you know that your reach was actually longer than his. Yeah so yeah. That's what made obviously imagine how many people are always got the Rangers get the region to sit back and laugh but at the same time. Obviously Tola Tola man you know h going on.

I'll go really use that extension work and stuff like that just to get the job done you know. I'M NOT GONNA go too far today. Cal thanks thanks to you. Can you can see what Dante Aldo and completely shutting down. And that wasn't just because he didn't show up as not one of lay that that ain't what happened even if Aldo. Wants to believe that again. That's about respect in great shape but I had him feeling like you're stuck in the mud. I hadn't doing exactly what I wanted him to do. And capitalize on it and the food people realize that the sure that I have much of a real delight. I can't obviously can't see right now but I could sense the confidence just like tripping out of your body right now it's oozing using out of you and it's making me so excited for this.

"I specifically thought of an old business partner who which gives me a lot of peace because before I feel like I had to either accept or reject. And now I feel more like it. I have to discover, as who was go moose. Yeah. Yeah. So it's not like it sounds like you in thinking you were going to do more therapeutic personal. Dull were any mindset as Lee had more of a spiritual a lot of my therapists was pretty damn impressed. I mean it's like look at my notes. Yes. Of course, took notes on my experience. I mean, what are the things that came up a lot was just more kind of the physical world versus the spiritual world was a really wanted to do something about mining. Zayed's. Because because I, I think we all have low level, depression and anxiety at this point. Right. So I feel like I make a lot of anxious decisions. And I'm aware of them pan wanna do them anymore. Like I, I still make them. And so I went in to, like, I really would like to do something about anxiety end the, the first night my brain was just like. No one thousand miles an hour. Like a like I just can't stop thinking, and I had the thought like how the hell is the simplest helped me deal with my anxiety, and then the just the thought came to me of this is easy anxiety is the thoughts racing in your head anxiety is the voice in your head, who was constantly afraid of something. The voice is constantly judging the voice in your head. That is constantly making valuations about, what's right and wrong. Good and bad in should and should not than can help you get better or worse, stack up against other people. It's the comparison in the judging voice that is constantly going. That is the source of anxiety. So if you don't take the voice so seriously. There is there is no more anxiety. If you if you remove judgments, there is nothing to be anxious about it occurred to me that the, the, the reason we feel anxious or the reason that we feel any negative emotion is because we are making a judgment that may or may not be correct. So I- judge my body, I may or may not be right about my judgment. I judge what my Bank account should look like according to what that is. A subjective analysis of what I think, should be the case. And who's right about that? One. And so that judge in your brain, first of all, is never happy never satisfied. It can be temporarily quieted when it compares itself to something else, and feels better about itself. But that's what we position because the minute that change is not critical voices going again. Beating yourself up and, and it was very much that idea of, what Eckhard tola talks about in power of now of recognizing that there were like two of him, there was the critical voice in his head in there was the observer of the voice ahead. An all suffering comes from that critical voice in the head that constantly wants to judge evaluate and compare it. So, so my perspective, is it seems like entrepreneurs particularly can use the anxiety as tool and are terrified go there, June, that judge our shame feeling that they're not enough for should be more. Could be responsible to where gotten up until now. So how do you move forward as something you did out of us the ego when it benefits you? But then pulled back. I mean where do you go from here? Not gotten kind of incited like what true nature of anxieties for you. So whether you're a lot of entrepreneurs think that if they can heal the wounds that drive them. Maybe they won't have drive anymore, will first of all, if you're driving from an anxious or you're driving from a scarce place. The more you achieve the more. The scarcity the more. The anxiousness is now being fed. So when you're driving from a scared place as you move forward. You just get more scared that voice just gets louder in just gets more reinforce..

"Carol depth tola. She is the restaurant critic at the Milwaukee journal sentinel. Hey, when we talk about Joe Bartolotta. What would you say his legacy is his lasting Mark on Milwaukee? Oh so much. I mean, there are his restaurants, of course, which are significant. And we know when Bartolotta name is attached to a restaurant. There's an expectation of a certain level of quality because we've seen what they can do with places like Baucus part bistro. But he's also I mean, he's just done so much philanthropic work in the city, the Bartolotta organization in general does quite a bit of charity work, but he's been a big fundraiser for the humane society. He's he's went to assistance to all manner of fundraising for organizations that in especially ones that help young people. Learn more about restaurant work. He's very active in pro start. He and his wife, Jennifer, where significant launching that sort of hands on. Initiative in the walkie public schools, and that train that give people young people skills to get a job as soon as they graduate in the ever growing number of restaurants in the walkie. So you know, he did a lot for people who enjoy a night out on the town. But he also worked a lot for the future. When you think about the Milwaukee restaurants scene where it's come in the twenty five years since Ristorante they opened in tosa how to Joe Bartolotta and his team change the Milwaukee restaurant scene. They certainly gave a different expectation for what an Italian restaurant could be. I think, you know, a lot of it was very much homey Italian American kind of, you know, the the red sauce spaghetti noodles and things that mean Italian to people in the United States, but they went to great lengths to import cheeses and wines, and and really great quality food from Italy. And you know, the area the waters around Italy. So he's really done a lot too. I think bring another dimension to find dining in Milwaukee. And of course, you know, we know what he's done with like park bistro, printing, French provincial to the lake front, and what was the very dilapidated building and just turning that into showpiece. And of course, Bacchus was. Her is still. Just a significant restaurant for fine dining, it's one of the places that you think oh this he wanted a night of, you know, great food and service, and really, you know, swanky and special atmosphere, if all the places that you think of in the lucky was he one of the first bring Bruce yet to Milwaukee, I read that or someone told me that he says he was and I believe it. You know, he he. They did do a lot to bring very traditional Italian food that maybe Milwaukee wins who were many generations already removed from Italy. They just weren't familiar with it. And so they did a lot to to introduce those sorts of things. Do you have a favorite Bartolotta restaurant? Frankly, I mean, I think probably my favorite is still Ristorante Bartolotta, which is the little one in the village of Walla tosa, and it's you know, it's small and cozy and the food is fantastic. Carol Deb tola at the Milwaukee journal sentinel. What a great guy Joe Bartolotta was involved in a lot of stuff not only in the restaurant.

Here's his side of the story. He was out with friends and girl came up people, and that, you know. Me to kiss you in the queue tried to kiss him. If he just pushed their way, okay? Story that's sort of believable. I guess did you by that story? I mean if birthday did, but then like in the back and forth with this girl over tax. You know, I said, you know, next thing you're drunk. I give you a girlfriend I and he was like, no, I wasn't the drunk point. He was drunk wine. Oh, I wasn't drunk one was the drunk one.

He's never cheated on me. He's never even give me a reason to think that he would cheat on right?
