There's a bird in Cuba with plumage in blue, red and white — the same colors as the nation's flag. The Tocororo, or Cuban Trogon, is the national bird of Cuba. When the Tocororo is kept in a cage, they often die. This fact has become a metaphor of freedom embraced by Cubans. The Cuban Trogon is a medium-sized bird often found in pairs. Its song sounds like its Spanish name, “Tocororo.” While el Tocororo is currently abundant, its population is declining due to loss of habitat. More info and transcript at BirdNote.org.

Cubans are increasingly feeling the pinch of the country's worst economic crisis in 30 years. In the capital Havana, people wait for hours in long queues to find something to eat for the day. The pandemic has played a major role in the food shortages, which are compounded by rising inflation and a 60-year-old US embargo. Our France 2 colleagues report, with FRANCE 24's Clémence Waller and Lauren Bain.

The Digital Divide in Tribal Communities Across the North American continent, there is a stark difference in the availability of the internet to different communities. Tribal lands are typically remote, rural, and rugged landscapes, and often have very patchy, or non-existent internet connectivity. Dr. Traci Morris explains why such a digital divide exists and how tribes are working together, both within their communities and with each other, to create and gain access to communications networks. Digital Deras connecting farmers in rural Pakistan In rural Punjab in Pakistan, farmers and villagers gather in places called ‘Deras' to socialise, drink tea and coffee and discuss their farms. But one project has created a community network to transform one of these Deras to have digital facilities – a ‘Digital Dera'. Farmers use this Digital Dera to access crucial weather forecasts and other information to help them manage their farms more efficiently. It also helps them battle the impact of climate change, as the crop cycles change due to shifting weather patterns. Founders of the project Fouad Bajwa and Aamer Hayat speak to Gareth about the impact of the Digital Dera project on the farming community. Offline interview in Cuba Cuba is one of the least digitally connected countries in the Western hemisphere. This is due to the US trade embargo but also poor internet infrastructure and tight control of its own government on the flow of information. Although accessing digital technologies is getting better, for ordinary Cubans going online is still a challenge. The internet connection is slow, unreliable, and prohibitively expensive. To combat this, they have created an offline underground internet called ‘El Paquete Semanal' or ‘Weekly Package' – it is a one-terabyte collection of eclectic material of movies, tv-series, sports, and music while turning a blind eye to copyright. Reporter Snezana Curcic visited to learn more about this Cuban alternative to broadband internet. This programme was first transmitted on Tuesday 7th June 2022. The programme is presented by Gareth Mitchell with expert commentary from Bill Thompson.

A DOJ court filing lays out new details about the federal Trump probe, hospitals are under fire over transgender surgeries, and Cubans flee the communist country for the U.S. at numbers not seen in decades. Get the facts first on Morning Wire.
Thousands of Cubans took to the streets over a year ago. These protests were the largest anti-government demonstrations in decades, a truly historic moment. More than 1400 people were detained in the aftermath of the protests. In recent months, hundreds of demonstrators have been sentenced to long prison terms, in some cases up to 25 years.
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves says he is declaring a state of emergency after excessive rainfall worsened problems in a water treatment plant in the capital city. Reeves says the state will distribute drinking water and water for flushing toilets. The Pearl River flooded streets and at least one home in Jackson, days after storms dumped heavy rain. Severe storms that brought damaging winds, heavy rains and flash flooding to parts of the Midwest and the South are being blamed for the deaths of two children in Michigan and Arkansas. The British defense ministry said Tuesday that as of early Monday “several brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces increased the weight of artillery fires in front line sectors across southern Ukraine.” Tesla CEO Elon Musk has again filed paperwork to terminate his agreement to buy Twitter. This time it's based on information in a whistleblower complaint filed by Twitter's former head of security. A prosecutor in Atlanta has announced a sprawling indictment targeting members of what she called a violent street gang that targeted the homes of famous athletes, entertainers and others. The indictment announced Monday says singer Mariah Carey, Marlo Hampton of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Atlanta United player Brad Guzan and other victims all had their Atlanta-area homes broken into. A New Jersey man who posed as a former New England Patriots player in order to buy and sell Super Bowl rings that he claimed were gifts to Tom Brady's family has been sentenced to three years in federal prison. Scott Spina Jr. of Roseland was sentenced Monday in Southern California. President Joe Biden has called the leaders of two U.S. veterans groups assisting Afghans who have fled from the country on the eve of the one-year anniversary of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. The White House said Biden on Monday spoke to the leaders of the veterans-led #AfghanEvac and Honor the Promise groups to express his appreciation for their work resettling Afghan allies in the United States since the U.S. ended the 20-year war in Afghanistan. A Maryland man affiliated with the far-right Proud Boys extremist group has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for storming the U.S. Capitol. Authorities say Joshua Pruitt encountered then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer as his armed security detail led the New York Democrat to safety on Jan. 6, 2021. In sports, it was a winning night for Serena Williams, as well as the Angels, Brewers and Diamondbacks. And Jimmy Garoppolo has a new contract. A legal filing shows the Justice Department has completed its review of potentially privileged documents seized from former President Donald Trump's Florida estate this month. Monday's filing says the department has identified “a limited set of materials that potentially contain attorney-client privileged information." The filing from the department follows a judge's weekend order indicating she was inclined to grant the Trump legal team's request for a special master to review the seized documents and to set aside any that may be covered by claims of legal privilege. A hearing is set for Thursday in federal court in Florida. NASA has scrubbed the launch of its new moon rocket on a no-crew test flight after a cascade of last-minute problems, including unexplained trouble related to an engine.

A U.N. nuclear watchdog team has set off on an urgent mission to safeguard the endangered Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia atomic power plant which has been at the heart of fighting in Ukraine. Cubans are fleeing their country in the largest numbers in more than four decades. The migrants choose to stake their lives and futures on a dangerous journey to the United States by air, land and sea to escape the island's political and economic woes. It has been nearly 25 years since Princess Diana died in a high-speed car crash in Paris. People are stopping near the tunnel, which has become a memorial for the late icon. A judge has ruled that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp must testify before a special grand jury that's investigating possible illegal attempts to influence the 2020 election in the state. But the judge agreed to postpone the governor's appearance until after the November election. The large fencing that has encircled the U.S. Supreme Court for months has now been removed. The building, closed in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, remains off-limits to the public. School districts around the country are starting to invest in programs aimed at addressing the mental health of teachers. A few states have been amending or repealing “pay-to-stay” laws that require former prisoners to reimburse states for the cost of their jail stays, sometimes at daily rates exceeding what they would have paid to stay in a luxury hotel.

By April 1983, SADF intelligence picked up that SWAPO had begun improving its military position in Angola and that their armed wing PLAN had managed a major incursion into Ovamboland. Then things went very quiet and intelligence reports suggested there seemed to be a link between SWAPOs special Unit being withdrawn, the signs of a large incursion into SWA which was to follow in 1984. At the same time, the SADF Chief of Staff Operations in Pretoria noted that the build-up going on across the border was biggest ever and had ordered a series of counter measures including Operation Meebos which we heard about last episode. While the politicians fretted about the global impact, on the ground top SADF officers were calling for another urgent invasion of Angola. As the discussions raged, it was clear that something needed to be done and that something would lead to one of the most significant actions of the Border War called Operation Askari. This was going to be different from previous conventional ops, because this time FAPLA, the Cubans and SWAPO were going to be respond more aggressively than during previous ops. And the SADF would face two far more serious challenges, the Soviet T54/55 tank and new radar controlled missile systems. The SADF and Jonas Savimbi's UNITA had planned an operation together to destroy FAPLA headquarters in Cangamba – a small town in central Angola. UNITA's initial assaults had been repulsed and they asked for assistance in overcoming a strong FAPLA contingent in the town. Unfortunately, there was a big problem following this success. The Angolans called on the Soviets to step up their weapon deliveries including the all-important T54/55s, and the Cubans increased the number of troops in Angola by 5 000 bringing the total number to 25000.
(1989) 2 Live Crew - As Nasty As They Want to Be Dem Vinyl Boyz Review (Episode 08) recorded August 2022 Shakin' what ya Mama gave ya this week on Dem Vinyl Boyz Episode 08 "As Nasty As They Want To Be" from 2 Live Crew. This historical album features dope classics such as "Me So Horny", "C'Mon Babe" and "Dirty Nursery Rhymes"!!! The 2 Live Crew consists of Chris Wong Won aka "Fresh Kid Ice", David Hobbs aka "Mr. Mixx", Mark Ross aka "Brother Marquis", and Luther Campbell aka "Uncle Luke", aka "Luke Skyywalker", aka "Captain D" aka "Luke"!!! Luther Campbell was the Quarterback for 2 Live Crew. he is synonymous with Miami. It's the city where he was born and raised. He first gained attention as one of Liberty City's premier DJs. If you had $50, Campbell happily showed up to spin records. “I did parks, car washes, wedding receptions, baby showers, street corners,” Campbell tells SPIN from his Miami home. “I was available.” Those early sets would mostly feature Herbie Hancock, ‘70s British funk band Olympic Runners, and some reggae records. “Miami's not really the South,” he says. “It's a melting pot of Bahamians, Jamaicans, Cubans, Dominicans, and Puerto Ricans.” Campbell himself is the son of a Bahamian mother and Jamaican father. Then hip-hop came along, down from New York. Campbell was instantly hooked. “I started playing these records at the parks and skating rinks,” he says. Campbell then came across a California duo called 2 Live Crew. The early iteration of the group was very different from what the group would become. Their first single “Revelation” and didn't contain a single bad word. “It was a ‘conscience' record,” Campbell remembers. The record's uplifting message wasn't exactly setting the charts on fire. Not to mention the group's lack of showmanship. “These guys were boring on stage,” he says. The 2 Live Crew's “As Nasty as They Want to Be” is a watershed album in hip hop history. It stands to this day as arguably the dirtiest record ever laid to tape, or at least one that millions of kids heard. What made it relevant, aside from the fact it contains enormously catchy beats and rhymes (albeit stolen for the most part), is it was for a period of time declared “legally obscene.” In their infinite wisdom, the state of Florida made the act of selling this album an arrest-able offense, an enormously controversial measure that exploded in their faces like a Luther Campbell facial once they realized people will automatically defy the norm and acquire anything they are told they cannot have (the “banned” album moved 2 million copies) Learn more about your ad choices.

If you asked me to dance, I'd probably freeze on the spot. I lack rhythm and coordination and some people say I have two left feet! But with some persuasion and Dutch courage I can be tempted to take to the dance floor and shake some moves – and that, apparently, is only natural.如果你让我跳舞，我可能会当场僵住。我缺乏节奏和协调，有人说我有两只左脚！但有了一些说服力和荷兰人的勇气，我可能会想去舞池摇晃一些动作——显然，这是很自然的。Experts have found as well as being fun, dancing might have helped us to survive as a species.专家们发现，跳舞不仅有趣，还可能帮助我们作为一个物种生存下来。Evolutionary anthropologist Bronwyn Tarr from the University of Oxford has been telling the BBC World Service CrowdScience programme that when we dance with others, we are rewarded with feel-good endorphins that change how we feel about ourselves and those around us.牛津大学的进化人类学家 Bronwyn Tarr 告诉 BBC World Service CrowdScience 节目，当我们与他人共舞时，我们会获得感觉良好的内啡肽，这种内啡肽会改变我们对自己和周围人的感觉。Dancing alone is one thing but it's dancing as a group that makes our brain reward us with a cocktail of feel-good hormones and is likely to lead to profound social effects. It's being in-sync with others that makes us happy. She says that "dancing fosters social closeness between people. It helps us build social connections and communities. In our past, those social connections would have been critical for surviving."独自跳舞是一回事，但作为一个集体跳舞，它会让我们的大脑用一种感觉良好的荷尔蒙鸡尾酒来奖励我们，并且可能会产生深远的社会影响。与他人保持同步使我们感到高兴。她说，“跳舞促进了人与人之间的社会亲密关系。它帮助我们建立社会联系和社区。在我们过去，这些社会联系对于生存至关重要。”You certainly need the right kind of music to help you shimmy, boogie or even twerk, but once you get the right beat and get into the groove with others, it can be an uplifting experience. Even my cringeworthy dad dancing makes me feel good sometimes. And in Swindon in the UK, this 'style' of dancing has been taken to a new level, where babies, attached to their fathers' chests in a sling, have been dancing with the aim of increasing the bond between parent and child.你当然需要合适的音乐来帮助你摇摆、布吉甚至扭动，但是一旦你获得了正确的节拍并与其他人一起进入节奏，这可能是一种令人振奋的体验。即使是我令人畏惧的爸爸跳舞有时也让我感觉很好。在英国的斯温顿，这种“风格”的舞蹈被提升到了一个新的水平，婴儿们用吊带系在父亲的胸前，一直在跳舞，目的是增加父母和孩子之间的联系。Dance is also a good way to keep fit and improve our mental health. In Wales there have been calls for doctors to prescribe dance classes to people who are unwell. The Arts Council of Wales claims there are many health benefits. And Bronwyn Tarr says "more and more we're actually discovering that your longevity – your life expectancy – is predicted by the social connections that you have… still today it's something we should do more of."舞蹈也是保持健康和改善心理健康的好方法。在威尔士，有人呼吁医生为身体不适的人开舞蹈课。威尔士艺术委员会声称有许多健康益处。Bronwyn Tarr 说：“我们实际上越来越多地发现，你的寿命——你的预期寿命——是由你所拥有的社会关系所预测的……今天仍然是我们应该做更多的事情。”It could be part of being an uptight Englishman that makes me a reluctant dancer. Look at other nationalities such as Cubans where dancing is at the heart of their cultural identity. And in Brazil at Carnival time, people let their hair down by dancing together day and night. They seem to be having a good time – so maybe I should get on my feet and dance!这可能是作为一个紧张的英国人的一部分，这让我成为一个不情愿的舞者。看看其他民族，例如古巴人，舞蹈是他们文化认同的核心。在狂欢节期间的巴西，人们日夜一起跳舞，让头发垂下。他们似乎玩得很开心——所以也许我应该站起来跳舞！词汇表rhythm 节奏感coordination 协调性two left feet “两只左脚”，跳舞时舞步笨拙Dutch courage 借酒壮胆，酒后之勇shake some moves 扭动几下evolutionary anthropologist 人类进化学家endorphin 内啡呔hormone 荷尔蒙in-sync 与…同步的foster 培养，促进social connection 社会关系shimmy 跳希米舞（抖动肩部和臀部的舞蹈）boogie 跟着流行乐跳舞twerk 抖臀get into the groove 进入理想状态uplifting 令人精神焕发的dad dancing “爸爸式舞姿”（较笨拙、过时的舞步）bond 纽带prescribe（医生）开（药）longevity 长寿cultural identity 文化认同let one's hair down 放松，尽情享受

Florida's Lieutenant Governor, Jeanette Núñez declared recently that undocumented Cubans in Florida were considered “illegals” and should all be sent to Delaware. The following day, Florida's Governor Desantis refuted her statement and said that undocumented Cubans were considered refugees and would not be going anywhere. All while, simultaneously, sending Florida state troopers to Texas to aid in the profiling of Latinos in border towns. Why? Rick Sanchez claims it to be 100 percent political. Sanchez is joined by attorney Thomas Saenz, President and General Counsel of The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and they both agree that being anti-immigration is a short-sighted political strategy with long-term consequences.

In 1961, members of the Alabama Air National Guard secretly took part in the failed invasion of Cuba by U.S.-backed Cuban exiles known as the Bay of Pigs. This was a covert attempt by the United States to overthrow the Soviet-allied Cuban government of Fidel Castro. Pete Ray was one of eight Alabama guardsmen who flew combat missions on April 19th 1961, which resulted in the deaths of Pete and three members of the Alabama unit. U.S. President John F. Kennedy later acknowledged America's involvement but denied that American military personnel had entered Cuban territory. It was not until 1987 did the U.S. revealed that eight ANG members had indeed flown into Cuban airspace. We hear from Pete Ray's daughter Janet, who tirelessly worked to find out the truth of what happened that day despite the best efforts of the CIA, the Cubans, and the US government to obstruct her investigations.

It's July 29th. You're listening to the President's Daily Brief. Your morning intel starts now. ------ First up, The US Senate announced a big bill yesterday to address climate change.

In today's episode of the “Helping Families be Happy” podcast, host Dr. Carla Marie Manly, a practicing Clinical Psychologist, Wellness Advocate, and Author based in Sonoma County, California talks with Antonio Sacre, an American Author, Solo Performer, and Storyteller. Antonio speaks about his book ‘My Name is Cool'. This book is about what it is like to be in between two cultures and languages, and how do we celebrate and survive that. This book teaches children to be proud of their heritage and the things that make them different. This is inspired by Antonio's personal history growing up as a Cuban-Irish-American.

'The Freedom Flights' from Cuba to the United States took place between 1965 and 1973. The Cuban Government agreed to allow America to transport fleeing Cuban families, with relatives in the US, to Miami. In 1967, Maria, her brother and her parents were among the hundreds of thousands that fled to start a new life in America. Because the family was sponsored by a New Jersey business man, they settled there to begin their new life. Maria was 16-17 years old when she came to the United States and according to her son, "considers herself an American." Joe insists "my mother is old school and worked very hard through out her life. She went to school for as long as her family could pay for it and then went on to work in factories where she was treated terribly as an immigrant."Both of Joe's parent's families are originally from Spain, even though his mother had been living in Cuba. Joe's father, a ship mechanic and hard worker came to the US and met Maria. They married when Maria was 19 years old and started a family.Joe repeatedly mentions through out the interview that as a child and even today, "I never wanted to disappoint my mother." Both of his parents worked very hard to give Joe and his brother everything they wanted. All Maria asked of her boys was to treat others they way you want to be treated. "Mom encouraged us to do what ever made us happy" says Pardavila. "I'm very grateful for all those little life lessons that were taught to me, whether through osmosis or verbal. It king of stuck to me and it's a part of my life for life."Joe is the Director of Podcasts for Advantage Forbes Books as well as the host of the podcast "Uncertain Times, Survive And Thrive In Business." He's also written the book "Good Listen," where he shares his experience and background as a producer/talent for the 'Scott and Todd Morning Show' on WPLJ FM, one of New York City iconic radio shows for 2 decades. He came to understand that he had many "soft skills" he could share and apply with others regarding great communication tools, regardless of what medium you choose to apply them. The Freedom Flights were an unusual instance of cooperation between the US and Cuban governments. During the Camarioca boatlift in 1965, Castro opened up the Cuban port of Camarioca for the departure of Cubans with relatives in the US (excluding men of military age). The number of boats and fleeing Cubans was so great that the boatlift overwhelmed the US Coast Guard. In an effort to support refugees and quell chaos, the US agreed with Cuba to finance the Freedom Flights, which transported Cuban refugees with US relatives to Miami twice daily, five times per week between 1965 and 1973. The Freedom Flights would bring about 300,000 Cubans to the US and cost approximately twelve million dollars. Although Castro initially agreed to the program, Cubans who signed up faced harassment and humiliation before their departure and property confiscation after.

It's June 1, 2022. Paxton is back with 'world kidlines' about the war in Ukraine affecting bullying in Europe, why a $4 lunch is 'cool' in Hong Kong, how Liberia is really into surfing, how Cubans are immigrating to the US illegally in record numbers, and how Canadians don't like the idea of Prince Charles becoming King.

Episode 107 is the eighth episode in season two of JFK The Enduring Secret. In Episode 107, we stop to take a pause and revisit the entire timeline of the Life of Lee Harvey Oswald. Our season two starts with the story that is Lee Harvey Oswald, the central character in the JFK assassination and some say, to know Oswald, is key to determining whether he truly was the lone gunman or whether he was part of a conspiracy, or whether he was just a patsy. And to better understand Oswald, we begin to get closer to the answer of who really killed JFK. Because there are many episodes on Oswald and they are presented in various ways, the timeline is important and provides appropriate reference to the listener before we get too far into the story of Lee Harvey Oswald. It's a bit of a wande,r but its worth going on this wander. Episode 107 is the complete timeline and there will be a series of published episodes after 107 is published that are "clips" or portions of episode 107 that explain the timeline for each of the various "seasons" in Oswald's life. Join us for the whole series of episodes about the fantastic goings on that encompass this part of the JFK story. Our episodes have now begun to explore an array of matters that dive into a deeper darkness related to what went on that day in Dallas and in the period before and after the assassination. Matters that possibly point to a wider and more sinister plot to kill the president and that clearly call into question the theory that there was a lone assassin. Complex cases without an eyewitness that can actually identify the shooter make the forensic and circumstantial evidence that much more important. Ironically, problems abound with much of the evidence in this case. Evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting. Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it, were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!This series comprehensively explores the major facts, themes, and events leading up to the assassination in Dealey Plaza and the equally gripping stories surrounding the subsequent investigation. We review key elements of the Warren Commission Report , and the role of the CIA and FBI. We explore the possible involvement of the Mafia in the murder and the review of that topic by the government's House Select Committee on Assassinations in the 1970's. We explore the Jim Garrison investigation and the work of other key figures such as Mark Lane and others. Learn more about Lee Harvey Oswald the suspected killer and Jack Ruby the distraught Dallas night club owner with underworld ties and the man that killed Oswald as a national TV audience was watching. Stay with us as we take you through the facts and theories in bite sized discussions that are designed to educate, and inform as well as entertain the audience. This real life story is more fascinating than fiction. No matter whether you are a serious researcher or a casual student, you will enjoy the fact filled narrative and story as we relive one of the most shocking moments in American History. An event that changed the nation and changed the world forever.
How do you judge a cigar? Focus on a cigar's flavor, balance, construction and clean finish suggests HVC founder Reinier Lorenzo. A cigar with a clean finish won't leave you with a weird taste in your mouth afterward—what smokers call ashtray mouth. Native Cuban Reiner founded the small-batch cigar house HVC in 2011, as a homage to hand-made cigars in Havana. “To me, Cubans, when they are right, when you have a really good Cuban cigar, there's nothing that you can compare with.

Passengers travelling with Ryanair to the UK on a South African passport are being asked to complete a test to prove their nationality. The airline says this necessary to combat a substantial increase in fake South African passports - an airline found to have taken a passenger to the UK on a fake passport can face a fine of £2,000. However, the required test is in Afrikaans, which has outraged many South Africans who view it as the language of apartheid. Audrey Brown is one of them, and explains why. More than 100,000 Cubans have fled the island this year - the biggest surge since1980. Some have set off on the tested route towards Florida in small boats, but others are taking detours via other Latin American countries. So why this sudden exodus? Will Grant has been talking to Cubans about their new desperation to leave. When BBC producer Mat Morrison was sent to Dnipro in Ukraine, it was his first experience of reporting in a country at war. Slowly, he says, he has learned how to recognise the sound of missile attacks, and what to do when they land nearby. When he first stood for election, Emmanuel Macron promised to shake up French politics. One way he proposed to do this was by radically changing the make-up of parliament, encouraging people from all kinds of social and professional backgrounds to stand as MPs. Five years later, and the French people are returning to the polls, to vote for a new parliament. As Lucy Williamson reports, some of the political neophytes from the previous contest are now feeling rather jaded. The nomad's way of life is under threat. Peoples who have been on the move for millennia are increasingly being told by governments to give up their wandering and settle. Anthony Sattin has spent the past few years with nomads in different parts of the globe, including a group of shepherds, based in a small corner of the Middle East.

Across the North American continent, there is a stark difference in the availability of internet to different communities. Tribal lands are typically remote, rural and rugged landscapes, and often have very patchy, or non-existent internet connectivity. Dr Traci Morris explains why such a digital divide exists and how tribes are working together, both within their communities and with each other, to create and gain access to communications networks. Digital Deras connecting farmers in rural Pakistan In rural Punjab in Pakistan, farmers and villagers gather in places called ‘deras' to socialise, drink tea and coffee and discuss their farms. But one project has created a community network to transform one of these deras to have digital facilities – a ‘digital dera'. Farmers use this digital dera to access crucial weather forecasts and other information to help them manage their farms more efficiently. It also helps them battle the impact of climate change, as the crop cycles change due to shifting weather patterns. Founders of the project Fouad Bajwa and Aamer Hayat speak to Gareth about the impact of the digital dera project on the farming community. Offline internet in Cuba Cuba is one of the least digitally connected countries in the Western hemisphere. This is due to the US trade embargo but also poor internet infrastructure and a tight control of its own government on flow of information. Although accessing digital technologies is getting better, for ordinary Cubans going online is still a challenge. The internet connection is slow, unreliable and prohibitively expensive. To combat this, they have created an offline underground internet called ‘El Paquete Semanal' or ‘Weekly Package' – it is a one terabyte collection of eclectic material of movies, tv series, sport and music, while turning a blind eye to copyright. Reporter Snezana Curcic visited to learn more about this Cuban alternative to broadband internet.

In this week's episode, we discuss the Uvalde, Texas shooting again now that the smoke has cleared and more information has started to come out. We discuss the three different sides, including the perspective that it was tragic and that everything that could have been done was done. The second is that more could have been done in the response. The third is by those who are questioning the mainstream narrative altogether. We also discuss the heroism displayed by many parents during this time of distress, including a mother who was arrested only to escape, jump a fence and save her children. Finally, we discussed the law enforcement's approach and if there was more that could be done. All of that and more on this week's episode!

My name is Austin Adams. Red pill revolution started out with me realizing every thing that I knew, everything that I believed, everything I interpret about my life is through the lens of the information I was spoonfed as a child, religion, politics, history, conspiracies, Hollywood medicine, money, food, all of it, everything we know was tactfully written to influence your decisions and your view on reality by those in power. Now I'm on a mission, a mission to retrain and reeducate myself to find the true reality of what is behind that curtain. And I'm taking your ass with me. Welcome to the rebel. Hello, and welcome to red pill revolution. My name is Austin Adams. Thank you so much for listening today. I appreciate it so much from the bottom of my heart today, we have a very, very interesting episode. It is now been a week or so since the tragic horrific, uh, shooting that happened in you validate Texas. Um, and now it's time that the smoke has cleared a little bit. We have a little bit more information in, and I think it's time that we dive deeper into this topic. Now, the first episode that we did on you validate was basically about how our politicians reactions were just completely inappropriate, uh, how it was almost saddening to see the politicized. Of the way that our politicians just kind of went about addressing this right? From, from president Biden to Kamala Harris, basically everything that they had to say about the shooting had to do in some way with gun control in some way with, you know, shaming other politicians. Um, and so today we're going to kind of look at the facts right there. There's a lot of different controversies that have come out of this. Um, there's a lot of different viewpoints that people have when it comes to this situation and we're going to touch on all of them. I'm going to try and take as much as I possibly can. A non-biased approach in explaining to you guys the three, what I believe to be the three most common belief systems surrounding you validate taxes and the shooting that occurred. Okay. So I'll take you through what those three things are. Okay. The first viewpoint that I see being somewhat common is that it was a tragic, terrible, horrible. The police did everything. They could. They, they, they were in there according to some sources. Uh, they didn't wait outside. Um, they did what they should've done. Okay. That's one viewpoint. The next viewpoint is that it was a terrible tragedy. It was horrific. And the police, the sheriffs, the whoever was on the scene at the time did not do exactly what they should have done. They did not go in soon enough. Um, they did not, you know, follow their own guidelines of their own, you know, uh, books and trainings that they had on this, that somebody dug up where it speaks about how to address this situation. Um, so that's the secondary, uh, approach to this? Is that not only was it, you know, obviously it was a terrible horrific tragedy and, um, but also the fact that maybe there should have been a different response. Okay. And then the third one, the most controversial opinion on this topic is that, uh, something that we've been seeing a lot around is questioning the narrative. Okay. Now I have to tread quite lightly on that side of things. Um, we w like I said, this is going to be to the best of my abilities, a non-biased approach to going over what these viewpoints are, why people may believe that the police did do the right thing, why people believe maybe they didn't do the wrong thing, and why people believe or disbelieve the narrative that has been going on here. Okay. Now you'll see, I have to tiptoe pretty, really pretty well with the way that I'm going to approach this, but I will try my best. So that is going to be our episode. All right. That's what we're going to be touching on the three different kind of viewpoints on that today. Um, so I hope you stick around. It's going to be a great episode. I have a lot more things kind of organized for this podcast. I think it could be fairly clumsy if I just went about it my normal way, where I just kind of, you know, frivolously talk like I'm sitting at the bar with you. So I put together a little bit of a, a little, a little, a couple, few points that I want to touch on and some things. So, um, again, thank you so much for listening. If you could go ahead and hit that subscribe button, all right. It takes, it takes five seconds out of your day. That's it just takes five seconds. You know, if there's one thing that you can do right now, that will make somebody's day, that will give you good karma is to hit that subscribe button. It takes five seconds. It means the world. To me, it means the world to my family. It means the world, um, to how much effort and energy that I put into this. Um, so hit that subscribe button. If you're on apple podcasts, Spotify. Wherever the hell you are right now, listening to this podcast, subscribe and leave a five star review. That's the biggest thing if you've subscribed, but you haven't left a review. It means the world to me, I'm sitting at 99 reviews right now. How is that acceptable? One more and I hit a hundred. So let yourself be that hundredth review. Um, again, it would mean the world to me. Uh, just write down what you think, you know, your favorite episode, whatever the hell it is that you want to write down in there, write down something that helps us get more, um, higher up on the algorithms for apple podcasts and some other things. So again, that's all I got for you right now. Um, thank you so much for listening. Subscribe hit that five star review button. Thank you. All right. Now the very first part of this that I would like to talk to, um, is kind of some of the sources surrounding the way that I've been kind of gaining my, uh, perspective on this. Okay. Now it's very difficult when you know, every day and every scenario right now, it's difficult to touch on. Um, I really tried to get a non-biased opinion. So there's a few new sources that I follow. And the one that I've been seeing do the best job following the, you validate Texas shooting to this point has been a, not so small. I started following this, this, uh, Instagram account probably at the very beginning of the Maxwell trials. I think we probably started our accounts around the same exact time. Um, and they've just been crushing. It, it, it's, it's a great platform. It's where I get a lot of my, what I feel to be non-biased opinions. Um, and some really like boots on the ground, hard nose bad-ass journalists. Um, and that is real news. No bullshit on Instagram. Um, I think they got a website. I don't know what the URL is, but real news, no bullshit on Instagram. It has a tremendous, I mean, they are literally in, you validate the last several days interviewing from what I've seen so far, they went and knocked on the door of the parents of the shooter. Okay. He has no name to me. He is a nobody. He's the horrific shooter in this incident. So he has no name, but he, they knocked on his parent's door. And, uh, the, I guess the mom answered, she said, douchey didn't want to talk to him. Um, so then they, uh, father came out and asked them to leave. They respectfully said, okay, they walked away. Um, they did not push any further, but they wanted to at least see if they could get a comment. Okay. Now, when they did that, they actually got a man from across the street who declined to being on camera, but they showed a little bit of him, um, during this conversation and they interviewed this individual. Now I'm not going to show this, this direct interview, but it had some key highlighted points. It was fairly long. Um, but the key points to me were that this individual said that he was like the, the, the, the town dad, right? They were the, this. Shoot or lived in a trailer park and you validate taxes. This guy said that, you know, I had all the kids come over, he had a pool table downstairs. They all like to play video games. He said they didn't really see anything off about this individual. Um, it had been a couple of years since he had been over there. Uh, but what he felt was that, you know, it was, it was a, there was some key points that he had regarding the parents in this situation. Okay. So they interviewed this guy who was across the street from where the mom lived of the shooter. And what he said was that, first of all, he had no expenses, right? There's all this talk around. Where did they get all the ammo? Where do they get the, the, um, you know, the Daniel defense I'm for, where did he get the other rifle? Where did he get the, you know, all of this, all this conversations surrounding the financial aspects of it. And he said he had no bills. I guess somebody, I saw a few times that the guy worked at Wendy's. I don't see anywhere that that's been substance. Uh, but I think it's interesting. So he said there's, he didn't think he had any bills. Now, the individual, the shooter in this case, um, lived with his grandma. Okay. The mom, according to this guy who lived across the street from her was, uh, according to him, hooked on what he called ice, which is methamphetamines. And, um, and so her boyfriend got her hooked on meth and there was a horrible situation and they got in all sorts of arguments. And so after a while, um, he ended up moving in with his grandma. Okay. Now what I think was the key point from that interview was actually that he, he said that, um, the grandma owns the trailer that the mom lived in of the shooter. Okay. Owns the trailer. The grandma did. Now. He went to live with the grandma, the grandma, if you recall, the actual facts of the situation ended up being the first victim. Of his shooting spree. And so, um, now the key point that I want to take from that interview was that he said that two days prior, two days prior to this individual going and shooting this school up and Rob elementary school, and you validate taxes two days prior, the grandma was trying to evict his mother from their trailer because she was trying to sell it. Now, the mother's response specifically was that she was going to burn them according to this man, burn the motherfucker down if before she'd let her get evicted. Okay. So apparently there was a very heated exchange between the grandma, between the mother, um, about her getting evicted from the, uh, from the trailer that she owned the grandma owned. Okay. Now, if you want to talk about emotive. I've seen enough law and order to know that that it's a potential motive, right? That's a heated exchange between somebody that he feels dearly about. Um, so I think that's really important now. And even more interesting point about that is the fact that they, the police never even interviewed this man. Never, never interviewed this man. Once he said he even went up to them and talk to them and like never not a single person came up to him. He like came out there and found real news, no bullshit over by the trailer. And like, Hey, you guys want to come talk to me? So he like sought them out. It wasn't that hard. Okay. So, um, interesting point that the police have yet to interview this man, a man who lives right across the street, who has the potential idea of what the motive was in this situation. You think that that might be an interesting individual. For these police officers, the FBI, whoever the hell is on this case, I'm sure Scooby doo and all his friends are there too. You think that this man would be a person of interest for them to interview, especially if he knows something about what was happening about the lives, about the mom's drug addictions, about the relationship between the grandma and the mother about, you know, so, so many intricate parts of this relationship. He literally had a front row seat to this house and everything that happened there. Okay. So why is the police not interviewing this man? Why are they not talking to somebody who claims that two days prior? There was a huge altercation at this house. Why, why are they not talking to this man? Okay. I think that's interesting now the next thing that they discussed, um, or the next part of their story, which I'll play some of it here for you. I kind of want to get away from playing too, too many longer clips for you guys. Um, so I'm going to try my best to tell these stories for you now, the next individual that they interviewed. Um, and again, this is real news, no bullshit on Instagram, tremendous journalism. The next person that they interviewed was a border patrol agent who drove 85 miles from 85 miles away at like 150 miles per hour. He doesn't say how fast he's going. They go like a hundred. And he's like, yeah, faster than that, 85 miles, this man got there in 40 minutes. Somebody out there is much better at math than me and you guys can do the math, but 85 miles in about 40 minutes. And, uh, he said that he got there and I'll play a little bit of this clip here. I think maybe we'll we'll touch on this, but basically what this man says is. He got there. He was curious as soon as he got there, it took him. So it took him 45 minutes to get there. They radioed in, there was 45 minutes. This man hauls ass, 85 miles away from the border let's go of for illegal immigrants so that he can go handle. This situation gets there. And the shooter still not taking care of right there, sitting outside. He said, now this is an important key point because there's been a lot of back and forth here when it comes to, were they outside? Were they inside? And we're going to dive deeper into those conversations. But I think it's important to note that this border patrol agent said that he got there and there were in there. They still hadn't shot him. He was still in there. They retreated according to this man. They went in initially they received. And then they retreated, right? No injuries, no police are dead. At least from my knowledge, I don't believe any police died if they did that's horrific too. Um, but it, it tells me something that he was on scene at the time he was there and he says they went in and then they went out, they left the area, you know, the area that was being shot up by a single individual while there's 18, 20, however many guys sitting out there with their rifles ready, enable, and obviously not willing, but ready and able to be able to go in there. Was it a breakdown in the chain of command? Was it a retreat because they weren't tactically ready? Was it? I don't know, but what I do know. Is that it should not take that long to get into a building. Now I said that would be non-biased, I'm going to try and retract and not retract because I believe every one of those things that I just said to you, but let's touch on the first topic here, which I think is important. Now, one thing I think is a, is an important issue to touch on too, is, you know, a lot of people are saying, why is this happening in the U S right? Why is this happening in the United States, more than any other country, right? Is it the access to guns? Cause that's, we know it's a contributing factor according to these people, why does the us have a higher percentage of these mass shootings occurred, uh, compared to other countries? Why? And I think that's an interesting question. And I think it's an important question. I think it's something that we have to deal with head-on and I think as something that we have to take an educated non-emotional approach to answering. And so here's my thought on that. Okay. When, when I believe when things, so there's a good example. I have this, that will kind of drive this point home for you. But so when, when it's something, as in the human consciousness, the youngian theory of the, um, of the greater consciousness, of, of the consciousness of humanity, that's all intertwined. Um, if you don't know anything about that theory, you should go look it up. But basically the idea is that there's a collective unconscious is the actual term for it. Okay. Now, when something is happening in the universe, in the, in the, in the ether, in the ether, when something's happening in the ether, it, it goes across the consciousness of all the individuals who are intertwined with that individual. Okay. So in this particular situation, it is a part of the United States of America is human collective unconscious that these shootings have been happening for a while. Now, now I posted a statistic today and what I said was on this day, CNN was founded 42 years. Since that date, that CNN was founded 42 years ago, school shootings have increased by 100% per decade for the last four decades. So under the logic of the gun argument, it would be just, it would make just as much sense that we, I don't know, ban CNN as this to ban weapons. There's a correlation. And if you look deep enough into anything, you can always find some way to connect the strings. And that's what we see our politicians doing here is they find a string. They pull on it. It's something that they've wanted to do all along, and they're utilizing this as a platform to do so. Okay. So if you look deep enough into any one of these, any specific piece of data, usually you can find some way to play mental gymnastics and find that to be the. So in this individual case, I think the reason that we have a higher percentage of these shootings in the United States is because of that collective unconscious, the same way that, um, you know, when it gets romanticized in these terrible, you know, really deeply distraught communities of like, you know, the, the deep dark corners of shadows of the internet, i, I would see it easily being romanticized people, watching the Columbine shootings and like, you know, all sorts of terrible things. Now there's the analogy that I'm speaking on that I think speaks to this the most is that there was a book that was written surrounding the difference in manifestations of mental health issues. And so what this book kind of outlined was the trans movement, having something to do with a new manifestation of the same mental illnesses, because what. You know, and again, I'll say that I just talked about it. You can correlate a lot of things, but what this book outlines for you is how the percentage of young individuals who were having mental illnesses that were presenting themselves in the way of bulemia and anorexia had that same amount that went away like that the same statistical amount that did not, did no longer identify as having bulemia or anorexia, or had these, you know, actually psychological evaluations to do so. The same percentage that were normally presenting their mental health issues as anorexia and bulimia. We're now presenting them in this, you know, transgender, gender dysphoria, whatever this book wanted to outline it as. Okay. So my point with that is it's a manifestation. It it's, it's the, you know, the collective unconscious way for a manifestation of these mental health issues. Okay. So that's just that, that is a piece of the puzzle. I'm not saying that's why it happens most often the United States. I do think that there's a conversation to be had surrounding. Weapons right surrounding, you know, the amount of weapons that we have. However, there's definitely contradicting data points. Like I believe it's Iceland, that's far more armed than we are that has far more guns per individual, per thousand and has far less gun crimes. Okay. So there's contradicting evidence for that, but I do think that there's absolutely something to that collective unconscious. And I do believe that with it being such a hot topic in the United States, it's always deemed to repeat itself because now the sick individuals who have the most rotted mental, uh, I don't know, state find, uh, now know the way that they can get the most attention out of, out of their anguish, and how they get their name on every news station. And it's gross and it's sick and it's horrible, but it's a manifestation of those mental health issues and the mental health issues that, you know, some politicians even went as far as to say, as he has no mental health issues really. He has no mental health issues because there's no way that you're able to do this horrific act, unless you have some type of horrific mental health issue. Okay. Anyways, let's go back to the original point here. Okay. So the three parts of this conversation, the first one's going to be, this is a horrible tragedy, right? The three different perspectives on this shooting. The first one is this is a horrible tragedy. It's terrible. What happened? The police did everything right. It's happenstance. There's nothing we could've done to improve this situation. Um, it's just terrible. The cops did everything. There's that's the main point. Okay. Now there was a video that came up where a teacher that was within the building came out and said that she believed the cops were in the building. Okay. She believes that the cops were there at the moment. They were trying to help us. And she goes on to say that she sh you know, who's ever saying this, and she doesn't say this specifically, but basically she was outlining the fact that the cops. Now, when we go into the next part of the conversation, we'll realize that there is evidence to show that they were in there. Just like that individual, who I was talking about earlier that border patrol agent, who said that they came in there, then they retreated. Then they went and sat in the parking lot for 55, 60 minutes, and then they decided, oh you know, we're still not going to go in until this border patrol agent that was off duty when against their orders and went and took him down. Okay. So, but there is an individual who says that they were in there. It's a very, very low, very it's, uh, it's, uh, it doesn't have much substance to it, to me because there's already evidence showing that they went in there initially, but then they retreated pulled out according to this border patrol agent who was there at the time. And then they went back in. So she could be very well referencing the, the initial part, where they went in there before, and then actually retreated because how would she know she was sitting in a, a, um, you know, a school room by herself with her kids right. In this chaos. How would she know exactly what's going on? I'm not saying she's not telling the truth. When I am saying is they went in initially according to other accounts, then they retreated out. Then they went back in 55, 60 minutes later. So that doesn't disprove anything that we're talking about here, but it does give a talking point to the individuals who were saying that they did everything, nothing could have changed. And this is a horrific event and we shouldn't be pointing fingers and maybe we should be looking at policy reform and all these other things. Okay. Which isn't wrong. Isn't wrong. In some sense. And the fact that, you know, obviously we have to have a deeper conversation around why these issues are happening, but also if we have a police force, that's sitting there with rifles, get your ass in there and save the kids. That's your job. That's what you're supposed to do. And we're going to outline an incredible story of a mother who did just that to save her children after being handcuffed by these police officers got out of the handcuffs. All right, we're going to talk on that. And then on the next portion of this, so we're going to talk on that mother because it's truly an incredible, you know, bad ass mama bear moment. Really, truly one of the heroes of this day was this mother who jumped the fence after being handcuffed placed on the ground, went in there, got into the building and saved her children, walked out with them. Incredible. We'll, we'll, we'll discuss more of that detail in a minute here. Okay. So, so in other points of this though, is, is to me, is like, what, what would be frustrating is if you were a teacher, like think of a teacher, I feel. Sending my children to, I have children, I have children. And when these things happen, right when the Oxford shooting happens a few months ago, um, it was much more near me than you validate Texas. Um, it hit really close to home. And so, um, it was really difficult then next day, it's like, it's concerning. I placed my child in the care of somebody else and I have no powerless. And if something, if I'm in a room and something, shit like that's happening or going down, I know I can do something about it, but to place your children in a situation like that a day or two after, because again, that collective unconsciousness that young and collective unconsciousness around those days presents itself in copycats. We've seen it when they came to the, when it came down to the Oxford shooting, the days proceeding that. All the schools in the local area shut down because there is so many threats, so many stupid ass, 16 year olds, 15 year olds posting on their Snapchat story that they were going to do the same thing. Like all this gross, disgusting, this that was going on after of all these people threatening to be copycats in this situation. Um, so it was very uncomfortable as a parent to send your child to school. After this week, I've still feel like dropped my daughter off at school today still feels weird. Don't like it it's uncomfortable. I don't like being out of the control of my child's safety, right? Especially when these things are happening in the, especially when the percentage likelihood that thinks things will repeat themselves around these dates come up again, right? The likelihood that that collective unconscious is coming together and some other super messed up mentally unhealthy individual who bought $8,700 worth of guns and ammo decides that he wants to put his name up on CNN's lights. So th so they go into the situation and the, and the, just the likelihood, the collective unconsciousness is surrounding that, that action. And then they see the outcome. They see that these people, you know, their, their names everywhere, they're famous. And they're, they're infamous. And when you're in that sick, disgusting, horrific place, it almost becomes romanticized. Like I said earlier. So as a parent, it's uncomfortable. Now, I also can't imagine being a teacher in this situation, can't imagine being a teacher in this situation. Imagine if there was a massive shooting where somebody went into an accountant's building, just accountants, right accountants. They went into accounting and accountants building, and they shot up 20 accountants. And you're an accountant. The next day, you got to show up at your cubicle and go to work like a bunch of accountants. Didn't just get killed in an accountant's building. Yes. Now you expect our kids to go into that situation, but also to expect the teacher to also expect the teacher who is old enough to know what happened is old enough to be extremely scared of this situation. And so I put myself in those shoes and I know the first thing I would want to do if I was a teacher the very next day, or if I was an accountant and there was all these shootings happening where accountants were dying in massive droves, what am I going to want to do? I'm going to want to protect myself, right? I'm going to want to do everything I can to put myself out of harm's way. And to be able to defend myself if something like this happens and how do you do that? Because our police showed that even if you're got 20 guys with Bulletproof vests on the area, completely cordoned off in 35 rifles, then maybe you're still not going to go in. So I need to be able to defend myself. And if I'm a teacher and you tell them. You can't carry a weapon in to defend yourself or your children that you feel responsible for tomorrow. When you go to work the day after a shooting like this happens, that's terrifying. That's like if you're a teacher, the first thing I would want to do, if I was a teacher is to carry in school, is to defend myself as to, I feel responsible for these children. I feel like, you know, they're they, to spend more time with me as they do with their parents during the school year, why would I not feel responsible for these children? And I want to defend them and how can I do that? If you're going to strip that away from me and not allow me to carry a half of the firepower of somebody who's willing to come in here and commit harm on these children and harm on me, I want to carry a weapon and there should be able to defend myself. Now, another thing that came from that interview was the fact that teachers in the local school area of the sheriff, I believe was. It might've been, I don't know, some type of law enforcement officer that they were interviewing again on real real news, no bullshit. Um, the individual that they were interviewing said that in 2018, there was legislation passed in their county that allowed for teachers to carry how different, how different could this situation have turned out. There was one individual in that school who carried, who is near this shooting and was able to immediately respond and do something or even able to defend themselves when this coward walks into their room, intending on doing these children. And the strip them of that, right? No school's zone sign that says gun-free zone has ever stopped a school. You think some guy who's in this state of mind, that's completely mentally unhealthy and unfit walks up to a school with his AR 15, his assault rifle sees the sign and goes, Aw, shit, can't go in here. It's a gun-free zone. Not going to shoot these kids. No that's never happened. Ever, ever a gun-free zone sign has yet to have any statistical significance in stopping mass shootings. And it's the sign is just the physical part of it. That means the policies don't work. The policies, the laws that you implement are not going to stop somebody because if they're willing to walk into a school and shoot 19 children, if that's where their mental state. Do you think, uh, making it difficult for them to purchase a firearm is going to prevent them from doing so, do you think that putting a gun-free zone sign up on your school or not allowing your to, is there ever been a teacher? Has there ever been a teacher that's committed a mass shooting ever point me to one, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it's happened. I don't know, but I've never heard of it if it has happened. So you're not going to allow that teacher to defend himself or herself. You're not going to allow them to defend their children that they feel responsible for. And you're going to put a sign out front and say, we got this right there. Nobody's going to come in here. It's sick. It makes no sense. There's no logical explanation as to why any type of legislation would actually prevent this from happening now, the gun-free zone. Which has shown again, I talked about this on our last episode where we discussed this two episodes ago, where it manifests itself in Chicago and New York and LA, which have the strictest gun laws in the country, but you'll still have the highest murder rates per capita of almost anywhere in the entire world. So we found that policy legislation doesn't seem to have an effect again, please tell me I'm wrong. Leave a comment, email me, whatever. Tell me I'm wrong. Show me it. Point me to a teacher that's ever went through with a mass shooting on their children. The children they're responsible for show me that. Tell me I'm wrong. Maybe I am. I don't know, but I've never heard of it. Okay. So that leads us to the next portion of this, which is the idea that, okay, it's a horrific tragedy, right? And again, to highlight what we're going to discuss here, the first one that we just discussed was it's a horrible tragedy. Everybody did. Which I don't know if I did very non biasly there. Um, but it's, it's difficult for me cause I, I just, it's hard for me to look through the evidence that's been proposed and, and, you know, I have the utmost respect, utmost respect for police officers, the utmost respect for border patrol agents, for anybody who in a daily basis puts themselves in harm's way for the, we are good if humanity, but I have that respect because you put yourself in harm's way for the better of humanity. Now, if you take that position and there's 17 other men who would have walked in that building and done something, 'cause, you bet your ass. If my daughter's in that school and I'm driving there, you know, what I'm doing is I'm stopping at home. I'm grabbing everything. I need to go in there and I'm walking right past these cops. And if they try and stop me, I'm going to tell them to shoot me in the. And I'm going to have somebody video recording it so that I can show that you are more likely to shoot the parent who was going to do something because you're being a coward than you were to go in that building and save those children. And that's what it took. It took one man who decided that enough was enough, because could you imagine standing outside of that school and hearing those sounds and just having to witness it, just having to sit there, wait on your chain of command. Fuck that. So the individual that did go in there was actually an off duty border patrol agent who did so against the wishes of the police that were there. So had this individual knock on against police orders and knock on in there. How many more lives would have been. How many more children would not have seen their parents that night. It's sickening to me that this happened. And they went down the way that it did. So there was documents that came up documents that were released recently that showed in the valley school district that they had active shooter training two months prior, they went over everything that they should have done, nothing, nothing in these documents said that they were supposed to wait outside for 90 minutes, not a single part of the documents. You know what the documents did say the documents said that you go in there regardless of your own safety. The documents said whether you have. I don't know, 20 people standing outside with rifles, or there's one of you, you go in that building because that's your job. And if you don't want to do it, I completely understand most people are not cut out to walk in that building and do the things that you would need to do to take care of the situation. I understand completely get it. Very few people are cut out to pull that trigger. Very few people are cut out to open that door against gunfire and go in and do something about this. Very few people are built that way. And if you're not stepped down, find a different job and let another individual who's willing, ready, and able to go in there to stop a situation like this from occurring. Because if you take on the job of a police officer and you just think you're going to be doing traffic stops all day, you're in for a rude awakening. When you get a call like. You're in the wrong profession. And again, I'm not knocking anybody who doesn't want to go into a building where there's somebody with a, a rifle shooting at you. I get it. You got kids, you got family, you got a life ahead of you too, but you're in the wrong job. Now I have some people that are close to me that are pretty big influencers in the police space that I highly respect that has a differing opinion on this. And, um, and I get it and I hope we start hearing some information that's countering this, maybe everything was done. And that would be ideal to me. Th th it's, it's terrible, terrible that this happened. And it's even more terrible that we get to, we have to sit here and wonder what could have been done, not even why, because why is a hard enough question in itself, but could there have been a different outcome if we had a different. And that's even more difficult to wrestle with because why is one person, why did he do these things, but why did the outcome not differ because of these large amounts of individuals, cop cars on cop cars, on cop cars, at least 20 men sitting out there with similar a weaponry as this individual had in there, just sitting out there and you know, where they were facing away from the damn school and you know who they were facing. The parents, the parents who were screaming and crying and agony, and all they wanted to do is go inside. They were literally saying, I will go inside. I don't even need your weapon. I'm going in there. And they literally put a mom in handcuffs. And the only reason she got out of the handcuffs was because she knew three of the officers. And they went up to the, whoever was in charge in the area and said, she's fine. She's not going to do anything. And then she tiptoed her way back and jumped a fence and got her damn two children like the bucking bad mama bear that she was to go do this because that's awesome. That's a hero. That's who I want wearing that vest. That's who I want going in there with an AR that's the person who has the balls to take on that job and know what's at stake when you don't address it properly. And so I do want to read this article about this mom, because I just think that's probably one of the most incredible, incredible stories that I've ever heard. This woman's screaming and crying and wants to save her children in this school. She's yelling at these police officers go in there, go in there. Why are you not going in there enough to where these police put her in handcuffs on the ground? Like she's a criminal for wanting to save her child's life. So here's the article. The article says cops handcuffed mom, amid Texas school shooting before she jumped fence, ran inside and saved her kids. That's incredible. And these are the type of stories. These are the type of people that we want in these positions who are going to go in and save your child. Save my child in a case like this, not 19 men sitting out there with rifles, scared of going in, and again, maybe we'll find out I'm wrong. And I hope that I am because that's, that's even more difficult to wrestle with then the why, because the why will never have an answer. There is a clear answer to this. There's a clear reason, or there's a clear a breakdown in the chain of command. There's a clear issue with the way that this was addressed and it could have been. It's very difficult to look at this individual, to look at the shooter, to look at this coward and say, we could have done more. We could have prevented this. We could have stopped him. I didn't know his mom. I didn't know his dad. I didn't know what he was going through either did anybody else, but there was at least 20 cops sitting outside with rifles who could have gone in, and that is much more difficult to wrestle with as a parent than it is to go. Why did this one sick person do these horrific things? Cause again, there will never be an answer to that. Never you'll never have a proper answer to that, but to go and to feel that you were let down by the police, the very people that you and trust your safety and your child's safety too, to know that they were the reason that your child's not coming home tonight. So this article goes on. A mom of two students at Robb elementary school says she was handcuffed by officers as the shooter was still inside. Before she jumped a fence and ran into the school to safely, Richie's retrieve her children on Tuesday. Anjeli Rose Gomez, a mother of a second grader, and a third grader told the wall street journal. She drove 40 miles to the Valdez school and was one of numerous parents begging and yelling at the police officers to enter sooner, to take out the 18 year old gunmen coward. Cause that's the only word that I'll use instead of his name. And this article is by the New York post. By the way, you can look up that topic that I just gave you. Okay. It says after a few minutes, she said, or U S Marshall placed her in handcuffs. The mother who is trying to save her children, placed her in the hand. Stating that she was under arrest for intervening in an active investigation. According to the journal, it took almost an hour before Ramos. Sorry. It took almost an hour before the coward was killed by a specialized us border patrol tactical team authority said in that time he gunned down 19 school children and two teachers. Now what you'll find in a lot of these articles that are maintaining the side that they want to be on, that is trying to maintain positivity surrounding what these police officers did is they will say that it was a U S border patrol tactical team. Not that it was an individual who was off duty, who went against the orders of the police and took this man down. And again, it's early. Maybe again, I don't want to act in absolutes here. I'm just reading stuff, trying to sift through it and then come up with a good story. Like good idea of what actually happened. So hopefully again, maybe something comes out, but it's, this is the mother who got arrested and then saved her children. So Gomez recognized a few Valdez police officers. You validate police officers and convince them to tell the marshals to remove the cuffs. Just as I said, she knew three of them once freed. She distanced herself from the crowd, jumped the school fence, ran inside the school building in, grabbed her two children, the three sprinted out of the school together. She's got goosebumps. That's incredible. Every parent ever. And this is a hero, I will say her name over and over again. Angela Rose Gomez is a hero. Not only that she cause enough of a stir to get herself. Then she convinced these cops to have not to take the handcuffs off of her. And then she jumped the fence, got her children and saved them from potentially the horrific things that happened to these other children. And I posted the video. I'm fairly positive. She was the one getting arrested in the video that I posted. Okay. If you don't follow me ever, it's at red pill revolt, you can see it. I posted it on Instagram. I posted it on Tik TOK. I posted it on truth, wherever you're at, you should be able to see it. Okay. Now the article goes on to say that Gomez told the journal. She decided to charge the school herself. As officers waited outside the building, quote, unquote, doing nothing. They were just standing outside the fence. She said they weren't going in there or running anywhere. A spokesperson for the U S Marshall services denied her account, telling the journal that deputy marshals never cuffed anybody outside of the school. We would never do that. Even though there's video evidence of it that I posted harrowing videos captured the heartbreaking wheels of parents who feared for their children's lives. As they watched police loiter outside the school building, what are you doing? Get inside the building a person. How will them one video as another screamed go protect the kids. Some fathers hopped the fence, smashed in classroom windows and pulled their kids out. A first responder told the post, the mom said she wasn't the only parent targeted by officers on the scene was she described as chaos. She said she saw police tackle a father to the ground and pepper spray. Another officer's tasered, a third debt taser. Uh, parent trying to make sure that their child is safe, tasered them tasered there, their father, the father who was going to run in there and save their children while they sat outside doing quote unquote, nothing. She said, she saw a police officer's taser, pepper spray, and tackle another father to the ground. They didn't do that to the shooter, but they did that to us. Gomez told the journal, referring to herself and other parents. That's how I felt. So who, who are you going to believe here? The individuals whose jobs are on the line, who not only their jobs, but their balls. They're a lot like their, their entire belief of who they are and who everybody thinks that they are is, is riding on this not being true is riding on the idea that they, oh, they did everything they should have done. They did the all. This mom has nothing to lose here. She has no skin in the game besides the fact that her child was in there and she felt like nothing was being done. As she watched other parents get tackled pepper, sprayed, and tasered while they were trying to save their children. So the next thing I'm going to pull up here is an article by Yahoo news, which talks about exactly what I just post or what I was talking about there, which is the fact that a border patrol, a group of border patrol agents defied you valid the police orders to remain outside of the school. And they were the ones who took down the shooter. Okay. So all of those articles that are saying it was a tactical team, we did, we, we knew what we were doing, did ya? Because they defied your orders to go in there and save these. And this is from Yahoo news. Okay. We're not, we're not fringe yet here. This is Yahoo news. Okay. And the article of this or the T the, the, the headline of this article says border patrol agents defied you validate police orders to remain outside of school. All right. It says the border patrol agents who killed the school shooter and you validate Texas on Tuesday, entered the school on their own accord. After local law enforcement requested that they hold back to senior federal law enforcement sources told NBC news on Friday, the officers from Bortech border patrol, his tactical unit arrived at Robb elementary school. In you validate from a location about 40 miles away. According to the New York times agents from U S immigration and customs enforcement, Homeland security investigations arrived around the same time. The federal sources also told NBC local law enforcement asked the two teams. And then task HSI agents with pulling school children out of the classroom windows Bortech agents waited about 30 minutes, 30 minutes, and then decided to ignore local law enforcement's request to remain outside, entering the school and neutralizing the gunman that's who did this, how much longer would this have gone on how much longer if these guys, these heroes, the ones who actually did their jobs, not even their jobs, their border patrol, they don't need to be jumping into school windows. They're border patrol. There was a SWAT team there, and these are the individuals that took this man, this coward down, not even a man coward. And they waited there for 30 minutes. And imagine how long those 30 minutes felt like, especially if you're somebody who believes what's going on is. They must've been, oh my God. I can not imagine the heart wrench again, with all of the sounds, all of the agony, all of the chaos, all the parents. And then you sit there and watch the parents get tasered and pepper sprayed, 30 minutes. They sat outside and then finally they decided screw that we're going in and we're saving these children because that's what men, good men, good women like that. Mom do. They act, they don't retreat. When an 18 year old coward with a rifle, same type of rifle. You have it sitting there, shooting at you. You move forward because it could have been two to three police officers' lives who were lost compared to 19 children. And I'd say that's a pretty fair. And again, I wouldn't wish that on anybody. Um, in, in being a police officer, who's going to be the first on scene and the school shooting is not for everybody and I get it. But if you're in that position right now, and you're w you're second guessing the fact that you would be the person to go in, maybe you should be second guessing your occupation, because it may not happen to you, but it's going to happen. There was 29 school shootings between 2010 and 2020 alone, 29, 2 0.9 per year, three school shootings, 50 states, 6% chance that it's in your state. How many major counties, while you work in a major county, 6% chance that it happens in your state, do the math. I'm not going to do it, but there's a likelihood. There's a likelihood that you will be first on scene. And are you going to go in because if not give up your badge, find a new job and that's okay. What's not okay, is sitting outside of a school for 90 minutes. While you hear gunshots go off 50 feet from you and know that it's in a classroom full of children, and you're sitting outside doing nothing with a rifle in your hands. This article goes on to say local law enforcement asked two teams to wait and then task HSI agents with pulling school children out of classroom windows. Bortech agents waited about 30 minutes and then decided to ignore local law enforcement's requests to remain outside, entering the school and neutralizing the gunman. One of the Bortech agents sustained a graze wound to the head before killing the shooter 19 students and two teachers at Robb elementary school and the deadliest shooting since 2012 shooting at Sandy hook elementary school officials identified the gunman as insert cowards name. An 18 year old resident of the valley. Local officers waited too long to respond, to answer the school and respond to the shooter, Texas department of public safety director. Steven McGraw told reporters at the press conference on Friday, Macross said that the on-scene commander at the time of the shooting, the police chief, Peter Aaron Datto believes that the gunman had barricaded himself without additional threat, without additional threat to children at the school. And that there was time to bring in more officers and equipment for a tactical breach from the benefit of hindsight where I'm sitting now, of course it was not the right decision. It was the wrong decision period. There's no excuse for that. McGraw said, there's your answer. They just told you we should've went in sooner. There's no argument on that. They just said it. K from the benefit of hindsight, it's the wrong decision. Okay. You can't argue that that was from their mouth. Nobody else's are that's. That's what they said. Okay. They know they should have done something differently. At least this one individual is saying that, okay, now, something even more interesting, which we'll get to in a second, I'll finish up this article with you, but there's something about that police chief that comes up in the following days, two days after we'll find out that he starts to ghost ghost followup investigators from other organizations who are trying to question this around him, and then even more interesting things happen right after that. All right. But before we do that again, I need you to subscribe. I need you to leave a five star review. This is the red pill revolution podcast, wherever you're at right now. Go ahead and subscribe.

Um, it's my license that you're under no third parties, like I said. So that's the only way that you can support this podcast. Thank you so much for considering it. All right now, what we're going to go over is the police chief. Okay. The, you validate district police chief was gone for two days and then had a closed door ceremony. Okay. So let me read this. And again, this is from real news, no bullshit. It says breaking you valley a school district police chief, who was seen commander made the decisions that they shouldn't have gone in. He was the decision maker at the school shooting was sworn in as the city council, as a city council member behind closed doors yesterday, it says Pete Aaron Datto, the valley school district police chief was sworn in as a city council member a week after a mass shooting left 21 dad and many more injured. The chief who also served as the scene command around the shooting was sworn in behind closed doors. You validate mayor. Don McLaughlin said out of respect for the families who buried their children today and who are planning to bury their children in the next few days, no ceremony was held earlier. Last week, our in data was elected to the city council. The mayor added that Aaron data was duly elected and that there was nothing in the city charter election code or Texas constitution that prohibits him from taking the oath of office. To our knowledge, we are currently not aware of any investigation of Mr. Randazzo. The new news comes as Aaron Datto has not responded to investigators with Texas DPS and a statement on Tuesday. DPS said that the chief has not responded to a request for follow-up interviews with the Texas Rangers who are investigating the massacre. According to the officers we've interviewed Aaron Datto was the one who called on officers to stand down and wait for a tactical team before going into the school. So this man not only ghosts, the Texas ranger. They made some movies about the Texas Rangers. If you haven't seen them, they're good movies, Texas Rangers are crazy. At least they were crazy ghost. The Texas Rangers who were doing the followup investigation into the shooting for two full days after he's the chief commander. If you didn't do anything wrong, why are you hiding? And also, it probably doesn't feel very good right now. If you're the parent, knowing the man who made the decision to not go in there and save your children is now city council member a week after the shooting, after everybody knew what he did after they already came out and said, what he did was wrong. He gets a promotion and leave without a promotion, but he also gets this, this other position of power after horrific, like literally the worst thing that I can imagine. And again, from an empathetic perspective, he made a wrong decision and maybe that's. And we'll get to more crazier stuff here coming soon. Trust me. Um, but for right now, let's call it what it was. It was a bad decision. It was a bad tactical decision. I would say. I'm probably not taking that city council member position. I'm probably getting out of the public eye as much as possible. I don't know. It seems weird to me, but then to ghost the Texas Rangers seems even more bizarre for two full days after this, this happens. It seems like you would want to cooperate to the utmost. If you were that individual and how horrified you would have to be for the situation that occurred, knowing full well that you did everything in your power to stop it, or maybe you're questioning that. And that's why you go hide for two full days. I don't know. Okay. So this is where it's going to get fun. All right. It's a good time to be a conspiracy theorist as my man, Joe Rogan with. It's a good time to be a conspiracy theorist. Cause you know, you got a lot of fucking ambient. There's a lot of ammo. It's a good time to be conspiracy theorists. Cause you got a lot of ammo. All right. So now I will preface this. This is not my opinion. This is the opinion of a small fringe, minority of the internet, who should not be thinking these thoughts, what they're thinking them. So I'm going to talk about it. All right. So this is a horrific thing to have to think of. Okay. This is a horrific path to go down and it speaks to where our country is as a whole that we have such a, I don't know, maybe I'm caught up in some weird algorithms. Maybe I'm in some weird echo chamber. I don't know. I try to stay away from echo chain. I try to get out there. I don't know. Maybe I am. I don't know, but it seems to me like these types of narrative questionings are becoming far more. Far more common than in 2012 when the Sandy hook shooting happened. Because if you said something about that, then everybody looked at you. Like you were crazy, everybody. It was not a mainstream thought to think that, okay. So this is a horrible thing to have to think of. It's a horrible thing to have, to even try to talk yourself out of thinking. Okay. But there has been events that have happened. If you recall Ted Cruz, who was questioning the director of the FBI, if I recall correctly, or somebody in that position who was in front of Congress being questioned on behalf of the FBI surrounding January 6th, saying that if you recall this conversation, I can't answer that question. Was there an FBI agent who incited the January 6th situation? I can't answer that question. Was there any FBI agents. During the time of January 6th. I can't answer that question. Okay. So let's get something with a conversation about what he presented, which was the idea of a false flag. Okay. Now again, I don't think this is the right opinion. I'm not saying I believe this. I'm not saying that at all, but there's definitely some weird things that have gone on that make you question narratives. Okay. And the fact that this is spilling into the mainstream, speaks to where we are as a culture. And this is horrific. And again, I'm not saying that, you know, when we went back to like the sh situation, that situation, there was people saying it doesn't exist. These people weren't real. This never happened. Okay. Now I don't think it has to be that outrageous of a conversation. It doesn't have to be that outrageous at all. Think about it like this. You have an 18 year old who's in mental anguish whose mom's on math. Who's sick and. And he finds his own little echo chambers online. He goes to rata and he goes to a four channel and he goes to whatever place you go to when you're sick in the head. And finds other people who are sick in that. Okay. Because if you think we already know the FBI knew of this individual, this coward, we already knew that we already know that they knew of him prior to this, that he was potentially making these threats. We already know that. So we already know that they have software at all times that always identify as anybody who does anything like this. We already know that we already know if they talk about that online. Yeah. Probably getting flagged and somebody knows about you. Okay. So my point is that it doesn't take strapping you down within a leather chair and sitting in front of a TV, though. It has a swirly little thing in the middle to get you to do something like this. What it could be is two individuals, a part of an organization who has a vested interest in moving towards the politicization of this conversation that convinces somebody who would, may have never done this in the first place. And they do that by, I don't know. Hey buddy. Yeah. Yeah. My mom's on meth too. Isn't that? Yeah. Yeah. It's all right, dude. It's all good. You know, mom's on math. That's all right. You know, we got to take our anger out on the world though, man, you know, they go play some call of duty. You know, I'm not saying that has anything to do with it. They go play some call of duty. Oh, check out this rifle, man. Watch this clip on it. This is pretty cool. You've been saving your money. Haven't you, man? Why don't you buy this one? This is cool. Oh. And get this magazine with it. And so it's these planning of seeds. It doesn't take this brainwashing television. It takes one to three people. According to some sources, he was speaking to some girl in Germany, his girlfriend, or some girl that he had an interest in, in Germany that he was talking to. And so all it takes is somebody like that. We've seen it where the people have been tried for convincing other people to commit suicide or commit atrocious acts. Okay, so it doesn't take a swirly TV sitting in front of you for you to defer, to convince somebody. It takes 2, 3, 4 accounts on Reddit, finding people who are already having these conversations and are mentally unhealthy, and then putting them in, giving them every step and every thought that they need, because they're agreeable because they're easy to convince because they're 18 stupid, their mom's on math and they have nothing good going on in their life. And it takes a couple of little seeds that you can plant to get them to do it. Oh, Hey, I know somebody at that school, maybe we'll unlock the door for six minutes at this exact time. Not saying that was the case, but I'm saying that there's a situation that could present itself in some movie that could present itself this way. All right. So that's the situation. It doesn't take a swirly TV. It doesn't take strapping and down to leather chair, it takes 2, 3, 4 accounts on Reddit to find one individual who's talking about these things and then to put them in the right position. Okay. So it's not that crazy of an idea in, in the reason that we're talking about these things right now is because there's been more conversations coming out. There's been CIA documents like operation Northwoods, where our CIA, our own CIA presented the document that was approved by the joint chiefs of staff that said that we can attack college students. It says real or fake so that they were willing to kill college students in have people dress up as Cubans in order to try and convince the American people to go to war with Cuba. This is on paper, operation, Northwoods, CIA reading room. Go find it right now, wrote a paper on it. Okay. This is a real thing. Okay. False flags have been presented in the past. Okay. Presented operation north was, is one of them where they actually talked about potentially. College-age students to convince the United States to go to war with Cuba. Okay. Now, another interesting conversation surrounding this is the idea that Joe Biden has come out now and said that he wants to demolish the school two days after the shooting happened, he wants to demolish the school level. It, he said he doesn't want these kids to have to go through the anguish, which again is a logical thought in some ways it's like, yeah, I wouldn't want to go back to that school either. If I'm a parent, I'm absolutely pulling my child out of that school. They're not going back there and I'm probably leaving that county. So I never have to deal with those cops again. But Joe, Biden's talking about demolishing the school, the other school ship. Now I know Oxford, Oxford school still standing there. Nobody's talking about demolishing it, nobody. And you know what? Oxford was, Oxford was a individual, a young kid who did it to his own school. And I think that's an interesting conversation to have to there's. You see Columbine, Columbine, all of these different school shootings, where somebody was at the school, they went to the school. They have a reason that they feel like this hatred for that place, right? These people, they did this to me, whatever that thought is, the horrific thought, right? Whatever that is, there's a reason they go into their own school and they do these things for somebody that randomly drive a truck that wasn't there as with $89,000 worth of weaponry to so happen, to crash right next to the school, to go to the back door at the exact time that it was opened in a school that has, if you don't know anything about elementary school security, it's pretty damn good. Like there's pin pads. You got to get buzzed in. They bring it back to the front desk lady. She goes, hello. And you go, hi, I'm here to pick up so-and-so and then they see the picture of you. They know it's you, they know you're a parent. This is not the seventies, right? There's li there's see things that have been put in place for this not to occur. And the fact that the back door happened to be open for a short minute period of time duri

The 1800s were an era of big questions, many of which we answered in cruel and selfish ways. Is one race better than another? Is one religion? If so, which one? In what ways? Is one economic system better than another? Is one system of governance like a democratic republic like the US, or socialist, or monarchy, theocracy, communism, best? Some people answered these questions with a resounding "yes". But if we think our people and ways are better than anyone else's, what responsibility do we have to spread those things? Men like Henry Cabot Lodge and Theodore Roosevelt were firm believers in social Darwinism, though their vision of it meant teaching those less "civilized" people our ways. And they were okay with the United States taking power over them. Meanwhile, there were men like William Jennings Bryan who refused to think of others in social Darwinism terms. He spent years fighting that dark philosophy, ultimately prosecuting the Scopes Monkey trial to stop the spread of social Darwinism. But the seeds of eugenics were planted. Caught in the middle were the people of Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Phillippines, and other colonies of the Spanish empire. Spain was busy imprisoning Cubans in concentration camps. Their ruthless behavior toward America's neighbors caught the attention of the US Senate, which was already champing at the bit for a fight. Men in the United States were worried about their waning influence on society. Groups bellyached about how men were not men any more thanks to cities and offices. In the minds of some, war was the answer to weak-willed men. And Spain provided that war. Our guest today is Paul T. McCartney author of “Power and Progress: American National Identity, the War of 1898, and the Rise of American Imperialism”. He teaches at Towson University. Discussion Questions: Do you believe your people are somehow superior to another people group? Why? Does that sound like an attitude Jesus would have? If you are somehow superior, what is your responsibility to other people? Should the US help people who are being oppressed around the world? When should we intervene? Do you think that men are in decline? If so, what is the answer to that? Do you better relate to Teddy Roosevelt or William Jennings Bryan when it comes to war? Or are you a pacifist? How would Jesus have responded to the cruelty of Spain? What do you think about social Darwinism?
