And joseph was going to come home today after all outside the county jail. The first person i saw was daniel his lawyer. He's on the way to be processed out of the jail and we will greet him give him. You know fresh change clothes and sent him home to his mom. Didn't that feel free. It's it's hard to describe. I think i'm more relieved than anything. I have been optimistically conveying updates to mr webster for a long time and some of the updates that i conveyed to him were too optimistic and i have felt terrible about that when that has happened so the fact that you know i didn't. I didn't have to disappoint him again. Gives me more relief than anything else. I'm obviously very very happy for him.

Fresh update on "webster" discussed on Latino USA
"The original denial of webster's application lead to some soul searching. This is the first one we've got to this point so it brought delight changes that we thought we needed to be made. That's robert jones who leads the conviction review unit all the units aren't like us there ivanov it may have lucien of the criminal justice system and the head of the sierra. You had more news. He told me he was giving joseph's application a second look less than two weeks later. The sierra announced that they were officially moving forward with reinvestigating. Joseph's case the moment joseph and his family had been waiting for for almost fifteen years would finally get a real chance to fight for his freedom. When marie found out that the conviction review unit how reverses decision and was going to reinvestigate the case she was in tears just took a whole asylum whole us me and my son we fe we pray together we tell and i just kept praying praying praying. She told me she was happy. But i could see. She was holding back where he told me. She's been disappointed before every appeal every hearing she always hoped he would come home. And i could see and touch you. That's what i know. Everything's okay how high we made for now. Marie was careful. She was guarded. There was no sense of how long it could take to get an answer about. Joseph's case investigations can take months or even years and this was the first case. The are you in nashville. Had ever agreed to reinvestigate but at least now there was a real chance. The family once again was asked to wait. Entrust the system but that trust was hard after so many disappointments people sleeping at night. And you've got to 'em semaine for the rest of his life but jiu walk good. You have family and you doin die. You know this man But you still got him sitting somewhere where he is supposed to be. And that made me feel like you know. I'm just gonna put nike's black man stone. Have a chess. they don bradman's don't have a chance. They take their life away from them in a for some. They didn't do and they don't have a chance to see like these people would not let us. Though murray says fighting joseph conviction has taken everything from her her health. Her peace of mind even her home when joseph was first convicted. She says she didn't have to twenty thousand dollars that his lawyer at the time was charging front so she put up the her home. She and kenya were supposed to split the bill. But marissa's kenny didn't do his part and the lawyer wouldn't work with her to give more time to get the rest of the money. She says he came for house. Marie worked hard and eventually she was able to get back on her feet and get a new home. She says she's long carried. This distrust for prosecutors detectives. Joseph i lawyer the judge that sentence him. She tried not to we angry but she thought about them. Often process was long. Eventually i moved to another city and took another job every six months or so. I checked in with the district. Attorney's office for updates on joseph's case joseph didn't call me often. Everyone was just waiting in august. Twenty twenty. there was a new announcement. The sierra you had made yet another change robert jones. The founder and head of the review unit was retiring and he was passing the reigns to a woman named sonny eaten. A former defense attorney. I knew that. I wanted to seat at the table. I knew that. I had a voice inexperienced to offer. But i wasn't exactly sure how to go about that criminal defense lawyers make a huge impact on individuals but as far as systemic change it. Can it can be really frustrating. Job sunny says she debated taking the job but she believed that the district attorney's office really had good intentions in setting up the cr. You and they want to make a difference that convinced her to take a chance. But i'm also a firm believer that if you wanna make a neighborhood better you live in it. And i think it is very easy to be critical from afar and not be willing to get into the trenches and have the hard conversations. I think that it is important. Both sides of the courtroom spend time on the other side. And i think that's where we will really see change happen. Sonny's wary of being critical of the work. That the cr you did compared to our justice system. Cr user. Just at the infancy. She says a lot of what they're doing is simply trial and error. After all the national sierra you did eventually change its mind about joseph's case so one thing that we take very seriously is that the original prosecutor in the original detective who worked on a case are not involved in a cr you investigation other than to provide fact based information. That is the only way they're involve. Establishing some separation between the review unit and the prosecutors will also important including a physical separation so in my case my office is on a different floor than the majority of the prosecuting staff. I'm allowed to do quite a bit of work in a lot of my investigation takes place of the office altogether. I requested in have been given the opportunity to choose which investigators in the office. I work with for different cases because you think about any. Da's office a lot of investors within the office are former police detectives which makes them very effective at their jobs but also means that we have our own biases and track records and relationships that we have to to work with. And i need to know that. I have an investigator who knows how to look for innocence. While sunny now retains the sole decision making role in determining whether to reinvestigate a case she says her salsa where risk and that isolation so the unit has found the way to incorporate appear review of sorts when an investigation is near a final stage. Those members are selected by the district. Attorney general glenn funk and the head of the cr you we form a review panel and essentially general funk and i work together to identify Some members of the office there might be outside members of the legal community involved process as well who will then review my work and ask questions and see if they think there's more information that they need in order to weigh in or things that are missing my investigation and the end. The district attorney is still the one making the final decision on whether they will exonerate a person as she adds to her new role on the other side of the legal system has taught her some lessons. She says it's important to arm are used with the tools and the support that they need but she also says there needs to be a wider consensus across society. So that prosecutors can admit fault. And i don't know how we ever get to affective criminal reform how we ever get to a place. Where fixing mistakes is the norm in is expected if we don't create safe spaces for that to happen a prosecutor who made one mistake on one case out of the thousands that they prosecuted in their career does not mean. This is a terrible person or that. They.

Convinced her to let him write a story about it and this led to a new path for her.

Barack Obama Is Now the Target of a Woke Mob
"Activists in chicago are protesting the renaming of chicago school. Because barack obama is a quote oppressor yeah. That's right This is from fox. News will caulkins. I think. I got the pronunciation right there. Board of education met tuesday evening debate renaming. Thomas jefferson middle school and daniel webster middle school after it was decided that historical figures either owned slaves or supported slavery one of the top contenders for thomas jefferson middle schools. New name is that of the first black president barack obama and former lady michelle but that name is drawing the ire of immigration activists and some in the latino community.

Apple Decides Users Will 'Follow' Rather Than 'Subscribe' To Podcasts
"On this episode of talking about something that apple. Podcasts has just done in a lot of people talking about it. that is you're no longer subscribing to podcast on podcast. You are following podcast. James cridland pod news wrote an interesting article about it. I'm going to read it here because it's very short. Maybe not an article just a few bullet points. Paragraphs follower podcasts apple. Podcast is stop. Using subscribe a small change with big impact no more subscribers podcasting moves to follow exclusive avalon. Cast will no longer use the word subscribe in a few weeks. Listeners will be invited to follow their favorite podcast instead this seemingly small change could dramatically affect the industry. Tom webster from edison research says forty seven percent of people who don't currently listen to podcast that subscribing to a podcast will cost money describing it as a stone shoe of podcast growth run. He tells pod news today. Apple spotify and youtube are the three most widely used services to play podcast and now the word subscribe means automatically downloaded for free. Exactly none of them. Podcasters will have no choice but to adapt their language accordingly or risk confusing listeners. Other podcast apps have already changed spotify. Audible us follow. Stitcher uses plus follow an amazon uses. Heart follow meanwhile google podcasts in cashbox. Us plus subscribe and overcast and castro us subscribe. Here's james opinion. The word subscribes been confusing potential listeners. For more than fifteen years. It's time for every podcast app to copy spotify stitcher apple and amazon by using follow and for every podcast or to follow their lead. The way we talk about podcasts has changed forever and that's probably a good thing. My thoughts on the subject is that words matter. This is why you hear me all the notes from an episode episode notes. They're not show notes. They are episode notes following a music artist on spotify that is different from subscribing to a podcast. When you follow an artist on spotify what happens is maybe get updates. If the artist has a new record maybe if you've got something like the discover weekly playlist or the new release playlist comes out on friday. Maybe you have one of the songs from the artists that you follow within those playlist. So if you're on spotify you're used to hitting that follow button following make sense on spotify. Does it make sense for a podcast app. I don't know maybe we'll in the future to me. Follow lacks the commitment. That subscribe does again. I think that words are important. And i think that it's up to you if you want people to subscribe to your podcast or follow to explain whatever that means.
A history of Mountweazels
"Suppose. I wanted to start a company that sold maps i hire cartographers and spend a lot of time and money going out and gathering data. Because i'm just documenting something which exists in reality. The end result of all my hard work and investment is going to look just like other maps. That are out there already. So why couldn't i just skip all the effort and copy the maps which already exist. Sure i'll change the font and the colors but fundamentally the end result is going to be the same either way right. This is a big problem for any maker of reference products maps dictionaries and encyclopedias. You can't copyright facts but you can take steps to show that someone is a plagiarist or violating. Copyright they do this via copyright traps copyright traps are nothing more than false information which is putting reference material to catch people who copy their content. If you copy everything without checking you'll copy the false information which will be evidence of plagiarism. Promos famous example was in the nineteen seventy five new columbia encyclopedia. they created an entry for one lillian. Virginia mount weasel. They created a full entry in the encyclopedia for which was totally fiction. According to the entry lillian. Mount weasel was a photographer who was famous for her photos of south. Sierra me walk whatever that is according to the entry quote. Mount weasel died at thirty one in an explosion while on assignment for combustibles magazine unquote while there was no cases of anyone actually copying the mount weasel entry. The term amount weasel is now a term for a copyright trap. there's a million. Mt weasel facebook page and the lillian virginia mount weasel research center website which has fake interviews with people who knew her as well as fake copies of combustibles magazine while this is one of the best known examples of copyright trap. It's hardly the only one. The nineteen forty three edition of webster's twentieth century dictionary had an entry for junk attack spelled j. u. n. g. f. t. a. k. The entry read quote junk noun. Persian bird the male of which only had one wing on the right side and the female only one wing on the left side. Instead of the missing wings the male had hook of bone and the female an eyelid of bone and it was by uniting hook and eye that they were unable to fly each one alone had remained on the ground and quote. There's no pronunciation given so. I'm pretty sure i said it correctly because there is no way to say correctly. The new oxford american dictionary has a definition for the word espa valence. Their definition of the word is the wilful avoidance of one's official responsibilities. The thing is this fake word has actually found some usage and there is now an entry for in which which references the original new oxford american dictionary definition. Personally i think esco valence is a perfectly crumlin word problems. The heaviest users of copyright traps are matt makers in cartography copyright traps are known as trap streets trap streets are fictional street or locations which are used to check to see if someone is copying their map. They're usually very small streets or alleys of no importance as no one actually uses it as an address because it doesn't exist. There isn't too much of a problem if they appear on maps. The state of michigan put fake towns in ohio in their nineteen seventy-eight official roadmap. The towns were beata so spelled beat. Osu and go blue aka go blue.

Hawkeyes can't back up their lofty ranking, suffer humbling loss to Indiana
"Leg. I think we might need to revisit. The word realistic. The definition is as follows. Having were showing a sensible and practical idea of what can be achieved or expected. I bring this up because on wednesdays. Podcast i asked you if you believed indiana had a realistic chance to win at iowa on thursday night you said no. I said no. Just didn't seem like a sensible or practical idea of what can be achieved or expected and for at least three reasons. One iowa is clearly better than indiana in the season to iowa would have the best player on the court. In the form of luca garza an three iowa was inside carver. Hawkeye arena where it inner with a nine and record. Obviously you know what happened next score indiana iowa sixty nine not n- is roy j carver famed industrialists rolling over in his grave. Norlander what was it like for you to watch and unrealistic thing. Become a reality late thursday night. Miriam webster defines the word regret as sorrow aroused by circumstances beyond one's control or power to repair. That game was out of my control. It was out of your control of conduct or an event giving rise to regret undesirable unwelcome. And as that game played out and as it got into the second half. I thought this is interesting. This is look this indiana getting a good win. I was really going to take this loss all right. You know what this is. This'll be something good to talk about on the. Oh wait a second. What did we say at the end of the last podcast. We said too much did we. Did we call it a little too far. Yeah did i have someone tweet at me. A link to the definition of realistic. You bet your ass. I did congrats indiana fans although you might be super conflicted this morning here because obviously you want your team to do well. Obviously a decent portion of you just love basking self loathing when archie miller doesn't performance walls coaches. You'd like you got a good win here. This is the kind of win. That's gonna get you into the ncaa tournament. like i. i think the hoosiers someway somehow they're going to be in that incident tournaments if it's because of a win like this. Are you suggesting that was a cpap win was well. They're not maybe it was. How about a vaulting win. They might not have been in prior to this game. Get the win vaulted. And that's even better than the seat. Bump vault vault launch it right there like a catapult right over great job i indiana i gotta figure this is probably a top five win of the season considering iowa's a top five team in the metrics. It is a game on the road again even though it's not a true true wrote environment. It's still a so. This is one of the five wins and think anyone has had the season and india. It wasn't like the squeaked it out they got it done. They beat an iowa team that i checked late last night. I'll bring up right now. Yes i was still third at ken palm as we report this podcast on friday morning and the win by twelve so a wonderful job. Clearly you know. That's the kind of game if i speak to. The hawk is real quick. And you're right. I actually have in my notes cover. Hawkeye's rolling over in his nest. Not his grave. He's really covering his nest That defense there is obviously problematic for iowa. That's the that's the kind of game. Where whether you're a fan. Or just a bit of a skeptic of the hawkeyes early this is why i don't know if i can take them to get to the final four. I still can get there. It was just a disappointing performance. What you see on on thursday night and what was your primary take away. Okay let me tell you. I experienced this indiana comeback. So obviously we we. We have a new president now and the country has been an interesting place to live in recent weeks and a guy with the high school with who was like a genuinely good guy but we see the in completely different ways In probably every election of our our lives. I've voted one way. And he has voted another and so he reached out to me and he said hey. Listen i i want to try to better understand like i keep hearing people say you know you need to listen to other people and i want to try to understand in an and you can see if you would it. Be okay if i reached out to you every once in a while and say. Hey well what do you think about this. What do you think about that and he. Here's what i think about this. And what am i missing. And i thought it was like a sweet gesture and so i said sure. Of course i'd be happy to talk gone. Eleven biden voters chatty to you like that by the role of the roles are reversed. And i said you know what i of course and anytime you wondering why so. Why does gp think this way. Or why do i think this way. And you want to bounce off of me. And i'm here of course.
How to Save Your Marriage
"Going to promise you one thing and that is that we could save your marriage so many times on the show. We've talked about marriage problems and often the solution for serious problems is marriage. Therapy easy to say you'll go but many times the one spouse will not go so what we're going to do is try and make it easy for you as a gift. We're going to give you two free days of marriage therapy. You won't have the expense and you won't have to leave the house. Starting today you will get a chance to look inside a marriage therapy weekend and here is what you'll see. We took eight couples who all admitted their marriages were on the brink of disaster. They spent the weekend with dr horrible hendrix. Who conducts these marriage workshops across the country and in the course of the weekend amazing results happened. Marriages were saved. And today you can begin to say yours. Tim and vicky webster have been married now. For two and a half years they are separated and vicky is expecting their third child. My next couple. Layton and debbie. Clark have three children and i've been married for six years. Derek and valencia. Stevens have been married for five and a half years. George and beth pasta have been married fifteen years and they have two children. Randy and pam mal have been married over twelve years and they have two children. Joe and karen stricklin have been married now for two years and they have three children from a previous marriage. Jim and laurie tolliver have been married nine months. The last of the eight couples has the biggest obstacle to overcome. James and mimi had been married six years. Mimi has filed for divorce. They came to the seminar truly to save the marriage. James and mimi lacey also joining us the mastermind behind this particular kind of marriage therapy and the author of this book which the therapy is based on called getting the love. You want getting the love you want. It is a guide for couples. Please welcome our marriage man. Harvard this. I have been watching some of the tape from the seminar and it is it has helped me and my relationship tremendously really has really just in learning how to fight fairly and so forth. Why is this different. It's different because there's a focus on an understanding that couples issues arise out of their childhood. And that when they present themselves in the relationship we have to understand that they come from someplace other than just the marriage so the workshop helps couples understand that provides them with some tools experiences information to help them resolve those childhood issues in their relationship. So we take the position that divorce is not the solution to a marriage that Working on marriage and resolving the childhood issue is the solution. So when you're married to someone you have to look at them for everything that they brought to the marriage before they got there exactly. Yeah childhood most important. You have to look at the childhood issues that were brought knowing that most of the conflict couples experience in their relationship comes from unresolved pains and hurts in childhood that are presenting themselves in adult form in the relationship. And if you know that then you know you're relating to a person when they're angry at you or upset or acting sort of crazy and you don't understand what's going on that relating to a person who's wounded and hurt and are dealing with that wound and hurt with the only skills and tools that they now have and that what you have to do in a relationship is to acquire new skills to deal with the old issues they have to be dealt with and so. The exercise that we're going to see now is called container. Exercise called a container exercise and this exercise comes actually at the end of two days of very intensive work. So it's about probably sixteen hours into the workshop before you get to this before you can get to this part because it takes a while to get to these kinds of feelings and the container is an exercise designed to help a couple deal with. What is what. I call a residual childhood rage. The hurts and pains the feelings. That are leftover that are created when when his little and get hurt and so. That rage shows up in marriages as Anger rage hurt and so forth in this container helps you deal with that because it has to be dealt with and resolve it so that you feel closer and more intimate afterwards. It creates compassionate intimacy rather than the distance that comes with most fights nats call container. Why because one person has to just listen. One person has to justice and one is a container that is they receive and listen and the other person is asked to go into their childhood hurt. It starts with something that happened in the relationship but then there to push their anger into the childhood memory and then into that pain. So there'd be a lot of expressions of intense anger and then tears usually come and then after that some talking and then when couples are doing this and they're real life you know in their home or in the workshop they alternate one listens as a carrying holding nurturing parrot and the other one goes in becomes regress like a little child back into that paint.

"So let's get started. I have ten insights to share with you for the year to come. I'm calling are twenty twenty one. Slow flowers floral insights and industry forecast report in pursuit of nature. A you can understand. Why right as we enter. Twenty twenty one at least in the short term. Not much will feel different from the past months. And if there's anything we've learned since mid march of two thousand twenty. It's the essential and irreplaceable role of flowers and plants for our survival. And that's why. My outlook is deeply connected to humankind's pursuit of nature. And how floral entrepreneurs like you cannons should tap into and enhance that. Through your efforts. I learned about the term biofuel. Iaea in october of two thousand and nineteen when i interviewed tom. Pract and sarah dakin of grateful gardeners. Tom is a big advocate of by affiliate any opened my eyes to its relevance as we make personal and business decisions that impact our planet's survival. He discussed the definition when i interviewed him. But here it is again a to. Miriam webster a hypothetical human tendency to interact or be closely associated with other forms of life in nature by affiliate. Well all you have to do is read the headlines of twenty twenty to see a collective shift toward nature plants the environment and yes flowers. A recent article in the washington post caught my attention. The headline reads the isolation of the pandemic caused her to form a new an intense relationship to nature. She was hardly alone. It went on to say the benefits of being outdoors for your physical. Mental wellbeing are well documented but in this corona virus. They may be immeasurable then. I saw forbes headline reading nature is good for your mental health. Sometimes i'm not sure what that means.

A Utopian Life - Is It Possible? Experiment vs. Reality
"Well let me start out. By saying that dystopia n- fiction is kind of like science fiction. It's that are happening. That really could maybe perhaps happen. Like a world war or some kind of something that is apocalyptic and so that kind of thing can happen perhaps okay but utopian fiction is the exact opposite and it is something of a perfect world that we want to be in from the merriam webster dictionary we find this definition proposing or advocating ideal social and political schemes and one who believes in the perfection of human society. Well utopias work in two ways walking away from the extreme happiness of a utopia to perhaps find something better. Whatever that is or to walk away from an apocalyptic dystopia in life for the happiness and hope of a utopian life that is better but what is the utopian life. I am careful to note that. It is known that karl marx and frederick engels have studied a utopian way of life to some extent in the form of communism but first let's begin by finding out about what a utopia really is. Well you really is. Happiness and hope perhaps built on someone else's misery or knowing happiness by seeing or imagining the opposite. Well that sounds okay right. A lot of utopian concepts include simplifying. Human life sounds okay to being more in touch with religion or nature. Yep that sounds okay. Social improvement again sounds okay a visionary dreamlike ideal of political and social systems. That sounds okay to well. Utopia is often defined as a place of ideal perfection especially in law's government and social conditions a utopia described as an imaginary remote place. That's right and perhaps it has an impossible ideal of being visionary from the website classical wisdom dot com. I find this ever since there were people and places there has been desire for other different people and ideal perfect places. And what is this website talking about. They're talking about utopia such an important word and it means so much and our society today a word that has its origins and ancient greece which has a translation meeting of no place. Everything is a place but not utopia. Utopia is an imagined place of perfection. Don't forget that it's something that we strive for. Dust being there is no place such as this while writer sir thomas more was a philosophical genius and knew that he must be open to the idea of there being a better place or at least proving that there is no utopia no good place. In other words you see the word. Utopia is greek and was developed and fifteen sixteen. So when coming up with this concept of no place sir. Thomas more was having fun and poking a little fun and playing where the definition of a good place or no place meaning. No place is really perfect. The earliest generic use of utopia was for an imaginary and indefinitely. Remote place like an island kind of the current use of utopia referring to an ideal place or society was inspired by tyler. Moore's description the dreaming of a better world is almost as old as the world itself. We all have that dream even today as humans. We always desire better. Don't we i know i do. Let's look at what some of these concepts of utopia really are well and utopia. There is nothing private anywhere. The doors and the people's houses are open to anyone who wants to enter them the utopians either meals and public and where they all eat is in common place. It is a capital offense to engage in private discussions about public affairs and the business of politics can only be done and public

I help the gist of what i do. Is i help people to zoom out so that they could refocus on what really matters in life in help them break down their goals into manageable process so they can go after the things that they really want to live a passion build life. because that's the type of life that i had. And i want that for everyone else i loved. They're all my guys. And i mean you exude that and how you talk on social media in how you just talk in general data this loses from you so i know that to be true and i absolutely love it love. It love it. It is awesome. Yeah that is awesome. You know especially now says well women who saw a hard on each other. You know we just. We don't own fails and good to have face like you de is like it's okay. It's it's okay.

That's the way i've been entire light and honestly like i i didn't know what being mindset coach meant in an agile. Coaches is basically mindset coach for development teams. I can't talk to them for development teams but That's the way i've been my entire life in at the core of it. I've been coaching. Since i was really young reported into people since i was really really young and for a long time away from it because i allowed the Check boxes in the list of what it meant to be living the american jane dream. I'm putting my hands in colts ryan. What it meant to live a good life Getting the way of my destiny in it took me so far away from it. And but it's it brought me closer to live at the same time if that makes sense. Because i was going one way roy. Todd was saying like okay. You think that you're going away from it. But every all the experiences that you're gain all the knowledge and experiences at your Gaining is going to bring you closer to that. Yes i love that and that holiday season of becoming a mindset coach if you can tell this rooted in in in your closeness with guiding your car your whole conversations with i love. That was that a hard decision like one of they stop today. You really had to like think about or use. Like i just know. This is this as while Generally i did when i started. I didn't see barely any instill you know as more people start to talk about mindset in their coaching businesses and things of that nature. I still don't see anyone calling themselves. The mindset coach brian So when you don't feel a lot of people doing something and you just feel like this is small still voice telling you this is what it is. You're like what does that mean like so. It was definitely a difficult decision for me because on hold someone the other day how we want to. We're in the age of knowledge and technology yet. Oh how we want to navigate. Life is we want to have the map and the gps and written directions. We wanna know exactly what's coming next. We wanna know step by step. Turn by turn but when you step out on faith you don't get that sometimes. Most of the time. What happens is when you step on fake is your vision is a little bit blurry but as you take one step Put one foot in front of the other gets a little bit more clear right. That's exactly what happened to me a right now. The reason why. I'm doing rebrand is because it just it was. It was crystal clear to me awhile back in. That took some working through as well but it was crystal clear to me a while back. That guided webster brand was a small piece of fleece fleece the a webster in order for me to fully serve my audience. I had to have the whole entire. Had to give all of me. Not just pieces of it that i thought that would fit into this This persona or lease at both around not sell and so it was a difficult decision and it took a lot of me. Walking in fate walking by faith and not by By site or what. I was hearing by looking at other people's journeys. It took a lot of that and also ahead to let go of my preconceived notions. I had to put down my map and put down my. Gps guided by my aren't my own intuition. Be vulnerable in that space. Don't want to be vulnerable to that journey. But that's what i had to do in now Since doing that. I've gotten more discovery calls. I've got more people to book I actually signed onto clients Third even before the ram auditors.

Right-wing militias are gearing up for an armed response on Election Day
"News National correspondent Michael Bauer. Michael I just mentioned there. Ah, couple of states at high risk for militia. Activity today and or tonight just exactly what does that mean? I think I know what militia means. But then charity told me that the Miriam Webster Dictionary today said that hot dog was a sandwich and we know that's not true. Hot dogs. I Oh, yeah, Dogs very much. So. So, what are we talking about here? Well, look there, according to and again, this is a group. I didn't even know how to report. But the armed conflict location and event data project, along with a group called Militia Watch, They are determined and have determined the areas susceptible to right wing militia groups with the most volatile area situated in state capitals and surrounding towns. Now the reason they're bringing this up is because not only have they seen over the summertime, a development that has some of these right wing organizations. Uh, give plenty of names like the proud boys. The Patriot Prayer oath Keepers. Three percenters. Not only have they become more emboldened and also feel empowered, but they've also become more assertive with activities ranging from intervening in protests to organizing kidnapping plots. Tow target elected officials as we know from Michigan. Now, the concern here is that what we've seen from Over the better part of the last couple of months with the black lives matter, protests moving into election here and calls on all sorts of levels for protests following the election if it doesn't go on persons way, I mean, even President Trump yesterday at two different rallies, talking about how there would be violence in the streets based upon Pennsylvania, and the call that the Supreme Court made to allow Pennsylvania have three extra days to count balloting that that was going to lead to violence in the streets and pointed specifically at places like Philadelphia. Cool. It is probably no shock to anybody that Pennsylvania makes a list of the top five Cities states. I'm sorry that have concerns over militia Oregon, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. Those air all areas that they're looking at concerns that these militia groups and other armed non state actors are going to pose a serious threat to the safety and security of American voters. Now, on a lesser level, the moderate risk Has places like North Carolina, Virginia, California, New Mexico and Texas. Now, what does that mean? I mean, these guys were like loaded up they've been doing. They're practicing their rehearsal. They've been going out and shooting to get themselves in top shape so that they could prepare for whatever goingto happen after the election. I don't know. I don't know what that necessarily means. As far as preparation goes, But the concern is they're active and they're ready. And what you're hearing from the president now talking about not just Inducing violence in the streets in this election, but pointing to that and not doing anything by the way to quell that not trying to subdue that not trying to say Hey, look, you've got armament. If you are an American citizen, and that's your vote. You can go out and use that boat today. In fact, he's kind of pointing to the fact that they're just will be violent. And then you see defense going up around the White House and then you see the boarding up of Buildings and stores in not just New York City in Manhattan, but also around Washington, D C and you start to go, man. This is not looking like the election day I was expecting to see happen, and then above and beyond that you got at least two states right there. In Texas Governor Abbott of these dispatched 1000 National Guard troops to major cities in anticipation of violence. Same thing in Massachusetts, and so The guards getting ready even though President Trump has not indicated he'll deploy them after the election, he could still do it and they're ready to go now. The
Born This Way Is Old Science
"The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy, CONYBEARE IT Senator Maisy. Hirano of Hawaii expressed outrage and shock that the nominee would use the term sexual preference instead of sexual orientation sexual preference announced senator. TORONTO. Is An offensive and outdated term used by anti lgbtq activists to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice. It is not after the Exchange Merriam Webster which apparently like most Americans had not gotten that Nemo with these new linguistic absolutes quickly changed the definition of sexual preference in its online dictionary. To, indicate that this wording is now offensive who knew we'll beyond the orwellianism of the literally changing the dictionary to support a political climb. It seems that Senator Hirano is the one who's actually behind the Times on this whole sexual orientation versus Sexual Preference Issue According to Dr Glenn Stanton, and then outstanding new article at public discourse. Judge Barrett's terminology is actually more in line with the latest thinking of leading gender scholars for example, Professor Sorry Van Anders at candidates Queens University has stated that. Quote sexual orientation as a term is increasingly seen as regressive because it belongs to the bio centralist project translating to English. What she saying is that the word orientation suggests that sexuality is hard wired and according to Professor Anders that's just not the consensus anymore among her peers though the whole born this way claim was once a very useful slogan to advance gay rights it no longer serves the goals of the LGBTQ. Movement years ago for instance, two scholars at Ucla question the concept of. Sexual. Orientation especially for women to instead that women's sexuality and Orientation Fluid Changeable over time and variable across social context other social scientists that Glenn Stanton quotes in his public discourse Article Call For a paradigm shift in how female sexuality is studied and described, and there've been plenty of surveys indicate that most self identified lesbians will have relationships with men. At some point. There's also a more obvious problem with the idea of a fixed orientation that's found in the very initials of the acronym especially the. Be The queue of lgbtq as political commentator Douglas Murray who identifies as gay by the way rights bisexuals continued to be viewed as some kind of betrayal from within the gay community gay men tend to believe that men who claim to be by are in fact, gays in some form of denial yet according to a pew research report from last summer bisexuals account for almost half of all LGBTQ adult in the US in fact, the authors of a new book published by Harvard University Press. Think. That male bisexuals are those who call themselves mostly straight vastly outnumber exclusively gay men. Thus they conclude the old system of gay straight or BI has as stanton puts, it outgrown its usefulness and even bigger challenge in the B. to the born. This way dogma is the T- gay rights and gay marriage were sold to us. The premise that homosexuality is hard wired maybe even genetic like race but anyone claiming transgender as an identity does. So in spite of physical and genetic realities not because. Of them and the CUE which usually stands for questioning well, that continues to evolve in both meaning and practice to include more and more sexual preferences as an identity. Well, one wonders whether Senator Horon would feel compelled to lecture the various social scientists that Glenn Stanton sites. In this article my suspicion is she wouldn't in fact, my suspicion is that Senate Arana was fed this talking point by an aide who's checking twitter and saw it as an opportunity to tar and feather judge Barrett as. A big what's ultimately revealed by her political posturing awoke language policing however is crucially important for all of us to now that phrases such a sexual orientation or sexual preference or whatever. The latest nomenclature are terms made up not to describe reality but to advance the idea that has revolutionized. So much of our culture on politics that sexual attraction and urge define and determine who we are. That's the idea we can never embrace even if we're facing outrage from a senator

I've just a a a a post at my facebook page Bob Launch. Berry to snippets of from last evenings demonstration, and they're sort of posted in reverse chronological order. But in chronological order, what happened was the you had these people who had set up there. It's commute time it's along one zero, four which is I think that's where it was but anyway, the point being Nayef, you're in a high traffic area and they're the demonstrators and they are coming out into the road trying to impede traffic and their harassing. People who are just trying to drive home or do their shopping or take their kids to wherever they've got to go, and you've got this filth in this pro vanity this vulgarity, these vile people up there and in a wonderfully coordinated effort by the Monroe County. Sheriff's Office and the Webster Police Department and we have a messages out to the chief of the Webster Police Department. I've texted the sheriff and the UNDERSHERIFF. I believe the under sheriff was in attendance I think seem in in one of the videos But what happened is a fait lancs, which is A. Long. Line of a sheriff's and Webster police vehicles very quickly came upon the scene. The protesters were if you will on the right hand side of the Road they had moved off the sidewalk onto the shoulder and into the traffic lane and this line of of deputies and officers came up and stopped and what they did with their vehicles was formed I. If you will a wall between the protesters and the passing traffic and D- deputies officers immediately exited their vehicles and you see in. One of the videos I think a young woman is taken into custody She was in the road and you're not allowed to go on the road now unfortunately, the city of Rochester they obey different master and in the city of Rochester I. Guess you can walk around in the streets and shutdown traffic and somehow they misinterpret the First Amendment at City Hall to think that's a protected activity but it's not and they know that in webster and they know that at the Monroe County sheriff's office and so. You're. GonNa Hassle. passersby, your take your protest into the street where people trying to drive while you're going to get arrested This isn't lovely village up here and you had a situation where they came they grabbed one or two of the people and they stood there did the officers and and they're like the video that is is posted like five minutes of it or so is the vilest profanity out of these people shouting at the deputies and officers it's just a it's disgusting it's revolting and it is absolutely not peaceful protests. First of all, if your protest violates the law, it is not peaceful and it is not protected by the First Amendment Again, you're not in lovely Ville anymore. But. The deal is if you step off of the into the road, you are in violation of the law and the violation of the law is not a peaceful undertaking period end of story. Further, if you listen to the vile crap out of these people's mouths is they are standing there in front of these deputies saying the crudest things clearly trying to provoke them threatening physical violence against the deputies that is not protests. That is a slow motion, civil war. It is a slow motion revolution. It is a Cold War of sorts that hopes to go hot. It isn't attempted provocation to violence. It is not protest. It is not protest. And again, in lovely Ville unfortunately, the people and their police have to bend over and grab their ankles. But I just hope that the folks realize that what goes on on the streets of Rochester will march down here. We'll shut this down. We'll do all that other stuff. That's because of the special dictate out of a city hall. But when you get back to where there is law and order when you get back to where they are concerned about protecting the rights of everyone to include people trying to peaceably lawfully pass in their vehicles on the street. Well then the protesters are going to meat or a different outcome. And again I hope you'll look at these videos. I hope that you will feel a pride at the fact that somewhere and again I I I, I don't want to. You know the the the actions of the Rochester Police, department in Kowtowing to these people. I yesterday posted a video which showed a Rochester police officer being punched in the face. By a so-called peaceful protester, right hauled off and punched in the face. Now that was caught on video. There's no question. There's no he said she said that guy right there just punch that cop in the face, the chiefs office. Intervened and said, let him go don't charge that person when the police she and who is the police chief right now there isn't one. This is lovely. Ville right? The current functioning police chief of the city of Rochester is a person A. Lovely Warren who currently is the object of two felony counts in an indictment right? That's lovely. Ville. And that gets you a call from the chiefs office saying, no, don't chart don't charge don't charge. Well. Again I just want to to to the protesting portion of the population. And you better keep in your mind real clear where the city limits are. Right because when you cross the city limits and you get out in America, they still have rule of law. And the cops they're allowed to do job you're going to be treated appropriately. You'RE GONNA, be treated fairly you're treated legally. But legally means you're not frigging God able to do whatever you want. Legally, means you will obey the law not just hide behind him. and. So we need a lot more of what we saw last night on row county sheriff's Office and the Webster Police Department. Again, they were a gentleman they. I I think I am ladies they. There was nothing untoward. They stood there. They took vile hateful crap from this gum that presents itself as these Grand Crusaders. Hey, listen watch that video because that's binds America and that's what we three weeks from today are about to get four years of just as an FYI right..

While abolitionists those who wanted the practice to end once, and for all where drawing large crowds in support of their ideals President Andrew Jackson was filling the White House with slaves from his Tennessee plantation the United States was in the middle of a Protestant revival dubbed the second great awakening, a movement that had started in seventeen ninety, and would peak by eighteen thirty five. It emphasized moral values that all Americans felt compelled to follow values like loyalty, kindness and faith. Likely as a result of this collective guilty conscience, the abolition movement swelled and a fair share of congressman campaigned against slavery, including former president John Quincy Adams though he was nearly censured by the House on account of his activism. One of the loudest voices in Congress would prove to be Daniel Webster, a well respected Congressman, turned senator, representing the State of Massachusetts, and while Webster's later years would bring the odd mixture of both acclaim and turmoil to his career, his roots were rather humble. Daniel Webster was born in Seventeen, eighty, two in Salisbury. New Hampshire. While his brothers grew stronger as they tended to the family farm. Daniel battled many illnesses. He was too sick to work in the fields, so his dad's sent him to school instead. Daniel was a sponge for learning reading and writing a local lawyer. Reverend let Daniel borrow books from them anytime. He liked. The law books in particular peaked Daniels interest in justice and politics from a young age. He also didn't mind some poetry now and then. Many of Daniel's teachers praised his exceptional memory on one occasion Daniel tried to prove himself at his teachers challenge that whoever the most scripture from memory over the weekend would win a prize. Daniel beat his classmates by a mile reciting seventy verses before the teachers stopped him. In May of seventeen, ninety six, when Daniel was fourteen years old, his father enrolled him at Phillips Exeter Academy a Renowned Boarding School in New Hampshire. He stayed for just nine months until he began studying more rigorously at just fifteen, he enrolled at the college there from seventeen, ninety seven to eighteen a one, he joined debate and literary fraternities, paving the way for his gift of speaking. And not to call out an old college trope, but webster developed an infatuation with women, due to his sickly Pale skin, frail frame and dark features Daniels advances, though were often one-sided to compensate Daniel started to dress better than all of his classmates. It was tricky. Granted nicer clothes proved to be out of his budget. But. Webster levied his personality and his intellect to become well liked among his peers at school. Who wouldn't want to lend a little here and there to such a nice guy. Webster became a master borrower which would serve him through his life. He was the most popular student at Dartmouth and one day. Many believed he would be president of the United States. After graduating, College Daniel moved back to Salisbury. New Hampshire, where he learned to practice law. During this time he married. Grace Fletcher a schoolteacher and clergyman's daughter. Then, in eighteen, thirteen, thirty one year old Daniel, saw his opportunity to get into politics. He ran for Congress and one representing New Hampshire for the next four years until eighteen seventy. However, there was no denying that a lawyer salary far. That of a congressman after all he'd studied for twelve years, and it seemed most prudent at that point to focus his attention on law. He moved back to Boston to work for the Supreme Court yet as hard as he tried. Daniel couldn't stay away from Washington politics for too long. He was fascinated by the influence. Political figures had and their indelible marks on history. He harbored dreams of one day running for president and influencing the nation. So, in eighteen, twenty two, he again ran for the House of Representatives and was re elected as representative from Massachusetts. It was around this time. Though that the congressman's political ideology would start to clash with his more personal ethics, as the national debate of abolition ballooned with each year, webster was growing more pressed to take a clear stance. And at first it seemed clear what that position was as a farm boy, he'd never been wealthy enough to own slaves. His adult life had proved no different. Daniel Webster gave off every indication that he opposed the entire system of slavery. was quite a stark facade given the fact that in the early eighteen twenty s Daniel Webster's first illegitimate child. Robert Webster was born. According to the reporting by Smithsonian magazine, the man later identified as Robert Webster, who was simply known as Bob at that time was born into slavery in Washington DC in eighteen twenty, though the identity of Robert's mother remains unconfirmed to this date, it was said that Senator Webster came to visit mother and child where they lived and worked at Washington DC's National Hotel. The Laws of slavery in eighteen twenty meant that they were the property of Jon Gadsby the hotel's owner. Webster's visits to the National Hotel weren't in secret. He allegedly made quite the impression with his impatient temper and booming voice when he dined at the hotel. Still at that point no one dared to cross the senator or comment on his activities off Capitol Hill. Indeed, webster was quickly making a name for himself as the master orator of Washington his word bending was arguably his most important calling card as a politician. In Eighteen, twenty six, he'd even been unanimously voted to give the eulogy for both former Presidents Thomas, Jefferson and John Adams. It was eerily coincidental that on the fourth of July of that year, both men passed away in.

He didn't know what they were arguing about that night, but there debates never really interested him. Soon the patter of footsteps approached from down the hall. Isaac peered into the dark corridor to see a young black boy approaching. Children had no place in the capital and black children especially were rarely seen among the halls. Isaac asked the boy what his business was. The boy told him that his name was bobby and he was there to see his father. It was a shocking statement. Every US senator was a white man, and most of them were married. There was no way one could have a black child. That would be against the law. But, the boy said his full name was Robert Webster. Senator Daniel Webster was his father and the boy to speak to him immediately. Isaac could barely believe what he was hearing. It seemed unfathomable that the senator known as Godlike.

There's something called districts. which requires that all sit so that's the house of delegates district would be an even multiple of Senate districts and the Senate the State Senate district would be made up of a whole number number of delegates districts since the current system like I have three different Senate state Senate races going on in my district one of my state. Senate companions has a state. Senate district has eleven counties in it including one where he only has to voters. I mean it's just silly and it is confusing and people don't ever the representatives are and it benefits the incumbent I because it topically if if elected I would you know early voting vote by mail without no excuse absentee I would let counties the counties wanted to try vote by mail and people in Oregon won't shut up about a wonderful if county in Virginia wanted to try vote by mail so we'll see how it goes. I don't like ranked choice voting which is still in the primaries you know when you have those big five-way primaries ranchers voting with these better candidate consensus candidates eventually. I think it'd be nice to use statewide in the general elections but rather than force it on people to try it out in the fragrance and let people per to kick the tires on it and voter guides. There's no reason in the world that produce and I think State Register. I think local registrars should publicize their early voting hours. That are a same day registration cool.

It's a it's a case about whether the death penalty was was wrongly provided here and and yes the trial trial counsel came out and said he did everything that he possibly could have done wrong in that case readily admitted it <hes> deficiency he is. I think stipulated at this point. It's certainly been found by the courts and part of his clemency application. If i understand those proceedings correctly is that this is the only death row case jason tennessee where <hes> deficiency has been found so the the similarities are <hes>. I think true in two regards i the same investigator and and then <hes> secondly some some really just <hes> poor performance by trial counsel which has serious consequences <hes> i i should that note that you know i have no independent knowledge as to whether or not <hes> that allegation <hes> regarding encouraging perjured testimony is true or not but what i do know is was that in joseph webster's case the investigation that was conducted was flagrantly incompetent failed to follow up on multiple leads that would lead lead them. I think to identifying the perpetrators in nineteen ninety eight and failed to track down phone records failed to track down teacher records. They failed to interview bunch bunch of people who would have been able to <hes> help them identify a suspect and then you know years after the fact based on this <hes> very very sloppy investigation gatien and they decide that they know who one of the two perpetrators is they take mr webster the trial so that to the extent that that it matters i do know that the investigation at least in mr webster's case <hes> was poorly conducted.
