Red Sox Review- Despite getting just 2 1/3 combined innings from their starters in games one and two, the Red Sox are heading back to Boston with the ALDS series split at one apiece.  The Red Sox offense was scorching hot in their 14-6 victory, with impressive nights from J.D. Martinez, Kike Hernandez, and Alex Verdugo. Tanner Houck may have been the saving grace for the Red Sox as he relieved Chris Sale, who only lasted one inning, allowing 5 earned runs. Houck threw 5 innings for the Sox, allowing just 2 hits, 1 earned run and striking out 5.

It's never too late to get started. One example is this week's guest for "Run The Race," which you should subscribe to now. Pam Howe is an an accountant, run specialty store co-owner, and running coach who did not start running until age 50. And 8 years later, she's about to run her 15th marathon. I met her at the finish line of the 3rd annual GA Run for the Fallen at the National Infantry Museum next to Fort Benning. After taking you inside that event, which is a team effort to run 164 miles in 2 1/2 days, (5:37) we open up the chat with Pam about that event, paying tribute to the nearly 800 military men and women from Georgia who have died in service since October 2000, honoring Gold Star families each mile of the run. She's also the mom of a Marine and the deputy chapter captain of Team RWB in the Savannah area where she lives. (12:27) She talks about how and why she started running at age 50, with a rocky start that led to walking then gradually more. After trying her first ever 5K. she ran a marathon 8 months later, crying at that finish line, and not long after, qualifying for the Boston Marathon. (19:38) Her goals now include traveling more for races, including finishing off the 7 world majors. (22:41) This certified running coach also has advice and encouragement for people, starting with running form. (26:12) Pam is the CFO of Howe2Run store, giving out tips to customers and clients about injuries, strength exercises, especially when people have issues with their glutes and calves. (31:58) One of the biggest challenges people create themselves is they run too fast or too far, especially early on in their running. Pam also says you need to run most of the time EASY, which is conversational pace. Also important is pushing through the hard times on runs with positive self-talk. It's a choice to be happy! Nutrition is a big deal too. (39:05) She talks about what she does, in terms of protein, carbohydrates, and fueling runs with fat instead of sugar. This nearly 58-year-old wants to motivate you to eat and run better. And she's excited, nervous about running the Chicago Marathon, a few days from now. (49:34) We close out with me rapping/singing, appropriately, some of "The Distance" by Cake for our Stuck in My Head segment, followed by a "Parting Gift" quote for inspiration and my closing prayer.

“Everyone wants someone to care about them right? And that is what we are trying to do.” Sara Wilkinson is back with Jason and Emily for Episode 052 to focus on her work raising awareness of the struggles which lead to veteran suicide and the CHAD 1000x workout and events. In Episode 047, Sara told her and Chad's story of love and life and the events leading up to his death by suicide on October 29, 2018 after 21 years of service as a Navy SEAL including numerous deployments and TBIs, blast wave injuries and PTSD. This conversation is about warning signs, reaching out, hard conversations and maybe the start of cultural change to lower the number of veteran suicides. Sara's message is personal and her vulnerability has inspired many to reach out to her with their own stories of struggle since the first CHAD 1000x event in 2020 in Virginia Beach, and even more after recently appearing with Jason on Episode 296 of the Jocko Podcast. To say that she has saved lives with her message is an understatement. This year's Veterans Day CHAD 1000x workout and events aim to build even more community around supporting active service and veterans who struggle -- normalizing the conversations and care for each other. The workout is deceptively simple, not technical, the hardest part is to just “take one more step.”    Links: Glorious Professionals Episode 047 with Sara Jocko Podcast Episode 296 with Sara and Jason Sara's “Stand Down Warfighter” piece CHAD 1000x and 4-week Training Program Learn more about GORUCK  Glorious Professionals podcast website

Mike Hayes was Navy SEAL for 20 years, with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He then became a White House fellow in Bush and Obama administrations as Director of Defense Policy and Strategies, followed by a career in the private sector. In his book "Never Enough: A Navy SEAL Commander on Living a Life of Excellence, Agility, and Meaning" he describes the lessons learned during his career about the importance of meaning and impact. Profits from the book go to a 501c3 charity that pays off the mortgages of Gold Star families. Some takeaways from today's conversation: Doing the hard thing in corporate America. Owning our opinions and being honest with each other. Dynamic subordination- maintaining the agility to be where we need to be under the circumstances. Three phases of a career: 1-getting good at something. 2-having to show the world how good you are. 3-knowing you no longer need to show how good you are. Leaders gain authority by giving it away. Learning HOW to think, not WHAT to think. 1-Data, 2-logic, and then 3- forming an opinion.   Bill Hart is a coach in the mortgage industry, and  the author of the book "White Collar Warrior: Lessons for Sales Professionals from America's Military Elite".

Gold Star Mother's and Family Day falls on September 26 this year and is traditionally observed on the last Sunday in September. The day is for honoring families of those who have received The Gold Star – the military award no one wants. The award commemorates the tragic death of a military member who has perished while in the line of duty and hopes to provide a level of comfort to the parents and families that are left behind. Since World War 1, a “Gold Star Family” has signified a family that has lost one of its members in combat. The family can display a Gold Star Service Flag for any military family members who have died from any honorable cause – each gold star on the flag signifies a death. Though today only around 1% of the country is involved in military service, as compared to the 12% during other times of war, like World War 2, there are still a significant number of surviving Gold Star families – not to mention, a Gold Star lives on in a family's legacy. HISTORY OF GOLD STAR MOTHER'S AND FAMILY DAY Though the exact roots of the tradition aren't totally known, it was during World War 1 that the gold star came to symbolize that a family member had fallen in battle. Around that time, the term “Gold Star Family” came to mean that you were a surviving family of a person who died in service and families hung banners with a gold star outside their homes. The tradition has since been authorized and seeks to ease the grief of mothers and families while reminding that no one truly serves alone. Gradually, there came to be many ways for grieving family members to honor their loved ones with symbols worn or places outside the home. In 1918, President Wilson allowed grieving military mothers to wear a traditional black armband featuring a gold star. Soon after, it was approved for families to cover the blue star on the service flag outside of their home with a gold one. As of 1947, Gold Star family members can also display the Gold Star Lapel. The American Gold Star Mothers Inc. first got its start in 1917, when Grace Siebold's son was killed during World War 1. Wanting to create a support system for grieving mothers in similar circumstances, Grace gathered what would become the American Gold Star Mothers to grieve together and tend to hospitalized veterans in local hospitals. The organization was formalized as a non-profit in 1928, with a mission of remembrance, education, and patriotism. Still today, they support Gold Star mothers in their grief, hold an annual conference, and organize events with supporting groups. Though Gold Star Mother's and Family Day isn't observed as a National, federal holiday like Memorial Day, it was declared by Congress in 1936 to be the last Sunday in September – though, at the time, it was only known as “Gold Star Mother's Day.” It was in 2011 that President Obama amended the declaration, declaring the day to include families as well as mothers. Today, the holiday includes any immediate family member and authorizes that person to display the Gold Star Service Flag. Today, America is not embroiled in any kind of conflict like World War 1 or 2, and far fewer individuals consider Gold Star heroes and their families – oftentimes, people may think that they don't know anyone in a Gold Star Family. However, there are many more Gold Star families from previous wars than you may think, and since over 1.3 million people are involved in the military today, it's possible you know a family that still grieves a recent fallen soldier. Understanding the sacrifice and acknowledging the holiday are the best ways to support the families and honor the soldiers. GOLD STAR MOTHER'S AND FAMILY DAY TIMELINE 1918 Armbands Authorized President Wilson authorized mothers who had lost a child in the war to wear a traditional black mourning armband featuring a gold star. 1929 American Gold Star Mothers Started in Washington, DC, The American Gold Star Mothers Inc. quickly spread across the country. In 1929, the organization obtained a federal charter to support mothers who were often separated from their ailing or dead children. June 23, 1936 Gold Star Mother's Day Recognized Since this date, Gold Star Mother's Day has always fallen on the last Sunday of September. 1947 Gold Star Lapel The Gold Star Service Lapel, in addition to the Gold Star Service Flag, is authorized to be displayed by surviving family members.September 23, 2011.

Today we hear the Combat Story of Mike Hayes, a retired Navy SEAL Team and Special Operations Task Force Commander who fought in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Bosnia over a 20 year career. His time in uniform brought to key points in U.S. military and diplomatic history, including intersections with Operation Red Wings, the Mersk Somali pirate kidnapping, and an international treaty negotiation with Russia. While in the Navy, Mike was one of the very few selected as a White House fellow, where he served under both Republican and Democrat administrations and as the Director for Defense Policy and Strategy at the National Security Council. Since leaving the military, Mike has gone on to senior roles at Bridgewater Associates, Cognizant, and VM Ware. He's written a fantastic book, Never Enough, that we'll discuss during this interview and for which all proceeds go to Gold Star families. Mike is a model leader and giver and I hope you enjoy his Combat Story as much as I did.

Brian chats with the author of the book 'Sacrifice' Michelle Black. Michelle is a mother of two boys and is a Gold Star wife. They discuss her story, the process of writing the book, and the impacts of war. About 'Sacrifice' When Green Beret Bryan Black was killed in an ambush in Niger in 2017, his wife Michelle saw her worst nightmare become a reality. She was left alone with her grief and with two young sons to raise. But what followed Bryan's death was an even more difficult journey for the young widow. After receiving very few details about the attack that took her husband's life, it was up to Michelle to find answers. It became her mission to learn the truth about that day in Niger--and Sacrifice is the result of that mission.In this heartbreaking and revelatory memoir, Michelle uses exclusive interviews with the survivors of her husband's unit, research into the military leadership and accountability, and her own unique vantage point as a gold-star widow to tell a previously unknown story. Sacrifice is both an honest, emotional look inside a military marriage and a searing investigation of the people and decisions at the heart of the US military.https://michelleblacksacrifice.com/

Today is the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Nineteen Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks in the U.S. that day. Two of the planes were flown into the Twin Towers in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 people were killed, changing so many Americans lives forever. Earlier this week, host Jessica Rosenthal spoke with Chairman and CEO of the Tunnel 2 Towers foundation, Frank Siller. Siller lost his firefighter brother, Stephen Siller on September 11th. This year to honor his late brother and the victims who died, Frank Siller embarked on his NEVER FORGET walk. The over 500- mile journey started at the Pentagon in Washington D.C. to Shanksville, PA and ended on Saturday at Ground Zero in New York, reunited with his family. The conversation was too long and we could not include the whole interview with Mr. Siller. On today's FOX News Rundown EXTRA, with less than 10-miles to go on his walk when we spoke to him, the Tunnel 2 Towers Chairman and CEO told the Rundown what was going through his mind throughout his trek from Washington back to New York and why he felt it was important to do this walk. He shares his story about his brother and what happened to him on 9/11, he explains why it's important to share the story of 9/11 with the younger generation and the importance of never forgetting what happened on that day. He weighs in on the recent events on Afghanistan and if it impacts the 20th anniversary. Plus, he talks about his foundation Tunnel to Towers how the foundation helps families who have lost loved ones who are first responders or Gold Star families and why it is important to help those who serve to keep America safe.

MVC&R were pretty sure no one would make it to the airport in Kabul, and General McKenzie admits no one made it. Gold Star fathers react to meeting with President Joe Biden, and the frustration with his persistent watch-checking. John Kirby says the deadly weapons left behind are not a threat to us, and reports of the Taliban carrying out “door-to-door executions.” Flag officers are demanding resignations for General Milley and Secretary Austin, and a Pentagon spokesperson says, "We strand Americans all the time." The FBI says the Texas shooter may have been inspired by foreign terrorists, and the Biden administration is investigating states that are not forcing kids to wear masks. A school board got pranked into reading hilarious fake names, and an LA teachers union boss laughs about parents' inability to stop her.

Ready For Takeoff - Turn Your Aviation Passion Into A Career

      Originally posted in Marine Corps Gazette, September 2007 BURIAL AT SEA….. BY LT COL GEORGE GOODSON, USMC (RET) In my 76th year, the events of my life appear to me, from time to time, as a series of vignettes. Some were significant; most were trivial. War is the seminal event in the life of everyone that has endured it. Though I fought in Korea and the Dominican Republic and was wounded there, Vietnam was my war.       Lt. Col. George Goodson (Ret) and family Now 42 years have passed, and thankfully, I rarely think of those days in Cambodia , Laos, and the panhandle of North Vietnam where small teams of Americans and Montagnards fought much larger elements of the North Vietnamese Army. Instead I see vignettes: some exotic, some mundane: *The smell of Nuc Mam *The heat, dust, and humidity *The blue exhaust of cycles clogging the streets *Elephants moving silently through the tall grass *Hard eyes behind the servile smiles of the villagersBeauty and the Beast streaming *Standing on a mountain in Laos and hearing a tiger roar *A young girl squeezing my hand as my medic delivered her baby *The flowing Ao Dais of the young women biking down Tran Hung Dao AND…….. *My two years as Casualty Notification Officer in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland It was late 1967. I had just returned after 18 months in Vietnam.  Casualties were increasing. I moved my family from Indianapolis to Norfolk, rented a house, enrolled my children in their fifth or sixth new school, and bought a second car. A week later, I put on my uniform and drove 10 miles to Little Creek, Virginia. I hesitated before entering my new office. Appearance is important to career Marines. I was no longer, if ever, a poster Marine. I had returned from my third tour in Vietnam only 30 days before. At 5'9″, I now weighed 128 pounds, 37 pounds below my normal weight. My uniforms fit ludicrously, my skin was yellow from malaria medication, and I think I had a twitch or two. I straightened my shoulders, walked into the office, looked at the nameplate on a Staff Sergeant's desk and said, “Sergeant Jolly, I'm Lieutenant Colonel Goodson. Here are my orders and my Qualification Jacket.” Sergeant Jolly stood, looked carefully at me, took my orders, stuck out his hand; we shook and he asked, “How long were you there, Colonel?” I replied “18 months this time.” Jolly breathed, “You must be a slow learner Colonel.” I smiled. Jolly said, “Colonel, I'll  show you to your office and bring in the Sergeant Major. I said, “No, let's just go straight to his office.” Jolly nodded, hesitated, and lowered his voice, “Colonel, the Sergeant Major. He's been in this job two years. He's packed pretty tight. I'm worried about him.” I nodded. Jolly escorted me into the Sergeant Major's office. “Sergeant Major, this is Colonel Goodson, the new Commanding Office. The Sergeant Major stood, extended his hand and said, “Good to see you again, Colonel.” I responded, “Hello Walt, how are you?” Jolly looked at me, raised an eyebrow, walked out, and closed the door. I sat down with the Sergeant Major. We had the obligatory cup of coffee and talked about mutual acquaintances. Walt's stress was palpable. Finally, I said, “Walt, what the h-ll's wrong?” He turned his chair, looked out the window and said, “George, you're going to wish you were back in Nam before you leave here. I've been in the Marine Corps since 1939. I was in the Pacific 36 months, Korea for 14 months, and Vietnam for 12 months. Now I come here to bury these kids. I'm putting my letter in. I can't take it anymore.” I said, “Okay Walt. If that's what you want, I'll endorse your request for retirement and do what I can to push it through Headquarters Marine Corps.” Sergeant Major Walt Xxxxx retired 12 weeks later. He had been a good Marine for 28 years, but he had seen too much death and too much suffering. He was used up. Over the next 16 months, I made 28 death notifications, conducted 28 military funerals, and made 30 notifications to the families of Marines that were severely wounded or missing in action. Most of the details of those casualty notifications have now, thankfully, faded from memory. Four, however, remain. MY FIRST NOTIFICATION………… My third or fourth day in Norfolk, I was notified of the death of a 19 year old Marine. This notification came by telephone from Headquarters Marine Corps. The information detailed: *Name, rank, and serial number. *Name, address, and phone number of next of kin. *Date of and limited details about the Marine's death. *Approximate date the body would arrive at the Norfolk Naval Air  Station. *A strong recommendation on whether the casket should be opened or closed. The boy's family lived over the border in North Carolina, about 60 miles away. I drove there in a Marine Corps staff car. Crossing the state line into North Carolina , I stopped at a small country store / service station / Post Office. I went in to ask directions. Three people were in the store. A man and woman approached the small Post Office window. The man held a package. The Store owner walked up and addressed them by name, “Hello John. Good morning Mrs. Cooper.” I was stunned. My casualty's next-of-kin's name was John Cooper! I hesitated, then stepped forward and said, “I beg your pardon. Are you Mr. and Mrs. John Cooper of (address.) The father looked at me – I was in uniform – and then, shaking, bent at the waist, he vomited. His wife looked horrified at him and then at me. Understanding came into her eyes and she collapsed in slow motion. I think I caught her before she hit the floor. The owner took a bottle of whiskey out of a drawer and handed it to Mr. Cooper who drank. I answered their questions for a few minutes. Then I drove them home in my staff car. The store owner locked the store and followed in their truck. We stayed an hour or so until the family began arriving. I returned the store owner to his business. He thanked me and said, “Mister, I wouldn't have your job for a million dollars.” I shook his hand and said; “Neither would I.” I vaguely remember the drive back to Norfolk. Violating about five Marine Corps regulations, I drove the staff car straight to my house.  I sat with my family while they ate dinner, went into the den, closed the door, and sat there all night, alone. My Marines steered clear of me for days. I had made my first death notification THE FUNERALS………. Weeks passed with more notifications and more funerals. I borrowed Marines from the local Marine Corps Reserve and taught them to conduct a military funeral: how to carry a casket, how to fire the volleys and how to fold the flag. When I presented the flag to the mother, wife, or father, I always said, “All Marines share in your grief.” I had been instructed to say, “On behalf of a grateful nation….” I didn't think the nation was grateful, so I didn't say that. Sometimes, my emotions got the best of me and I couldn't speak. When that happened, I just handed them the flag and touched a shoulder. They would look at me and nod. Once a mother said to me, “I'm so sorry you have this terrible job.” My eyes filled with tears and I leaned over and kissed her. ANOTHER NOTIFICATION………. Six weeks after my first notification, I had another. This was a young PFC. I drove to his mother's house. As always, I was in uniform and driving a Marine Corps staff car. I parked in front of the house, took a deep breath, and walked towards the house. Suddenly the door flew open, a middle-aged woman rushed out. She looked at me and ran across the yard, screaming “No! No! No! No!! I hesitated. Neighbors came out. I ran to her, grabbed her, and whispered stupid things to reassure her. She collapsed. I picked her up and carried her into the house.  Eight or nine neighbors followed. Ten or fifteen minutes later, the father came in followed by ambulance personnel. I have no recollection of leaving.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download The funeral took place about two weeks later. We went through the drill. The mother never looked at me. The father looked at me once and shook his head sadly. ANOTHER NOTIFICATION………. One morning as I walked into the office, the phone was ringing.  Sergeant Jolly held the phone up and said, “You've got another one, Colonel.” I nodded, walked into my office, picked up the phone, took notes, thanked the officer making the call and hung up. Jolly, who had listened, came in with a special telephone directory that translates telephone numbers into the person's address and place of employment. The father of this casualty was a longshoreman. He lived a mile from my office. I called the Longshoreman's Union Office and asked for the business manager. He answered the phone, I told him who I was, and asked for the father's schedule. The business manager asked, “Is it his son?” I said nothing. After a moment, he said, in a low voice, “Tom is at home today.” I said, “Don't call him. I'll take care of that.” The business manager said, “Aye, Aye Sir,” and then explained, “Tom and I were Marines in WWII.” I got in my staff car and drove to the house. I was in uniform. I knocked and a woman in her early forties answered the door. I saw instantly that she was clueless. I asked, “Is Mr. Smith home?” She smiled pleasantly and responded, “Yes, but he's eating breakfast now.  Can you come back later?” I said, “I'm sorry. It's important. I need to see him now.” She nodded, stepped back into the beach house and said, “Tom, it's for you.” A moment later, a ruddy man in his late forties, appeared at the door. He looked at me, turned absolutely pale, steadied himself, and said, “Jesus Christ man, he's only been there three weeks!” Months passed. More notifications and more funerals. Then one day while I was running, Sergeant Jolly stepped outside the building and gave a loud whistle, two fingers in his mouth and held an imaginary phone to his ear. Another call from Headquarters Marine Corps. I took notes, said, “Got it.” and hung up. I had stopped saying “Thank You” long ago. Jolly, “Where?” Me, “Eastern Shore of Maryland . The father is a retired Chief Petty Officer. His brother will accompany the body back from Vietnam.” Jolly shook his head slowly, straightened, and then said, “This time of day, it'll take three hours to get there and back. I'll call the Naval Air Station and borrow a helicopter. And I'll have Captain Tolliver get one of his men to meet you and drive you to the Chief's home.” He did, and 40 minutes later, I was knocking on the father's door. He opened the door, looked at me, then looked at the Marine standing at parade rest beside the car, and asked, “Which one of my boys was it, Colonel?” I stayed a couple of hours, gave him all the information, my office and home phone number and told him to call me, anytime. He called me that evening about 2300 (11:00 PM). “I've gone through my boy's papers and found his will. He asked to be buried at sea. Can you make that happen?” I said, “Yes I can, Chief. I can and I will.” My wife who had been listening said, “Can you do that?” I told her, “I have no idea. But I'm going to die trying.” I called Lieutenant General Alpha Bowser, Commanding General, Fleet Marine Force Atlantic, at home about 2330, explained the situation, and asked, “General, can you get me a quick appointment with the Admiral at Atlantic Fleet Headquarters?” General Bowser said,” George, you be there tomorrow at 0900. He will see you. I was and the Admiral did. He said coldly, “How can the Navy help the Marine Corps, Colonel.” I told him the story. He turned to his Chief of Staff and said, “Which is the sharpest destroyer in port?” The Chief of Staff responded with a name. The Admiral called the ship, “Captain, you're going to do a burial at sea. You'll report to a Marine Lieutenant Colonel Goodson until this mission is completed.” He hung up, looked at me, and said, “The next time you need a ship, Colonel, call me. You don't have to sic Al Bowser on me.” I responded, “Aye Aye, Sir” and got out of his office in a hurry. I went to the ship and met with the Captain, Executive Officer, and the Senior Chief. Sergeant Jolly and I trained the ship's crew for four days. Then Jolly raised a question none of us had thought of. He said, “These government caskets are air tight. How do we keep it from floating?” All the high priced help including me sat there looking dumb. Then the Senior Chief stood and said, “Come on Jolly. I know a bar where the retired guys from World War II hang out.” They returned a couple of hours later, slightly the worse for wear, and said, “It's simple; we cut four 12″ holes in the outer shell of the casket on each side and insert 300 lbs. of lead in the foot end of the casket. We can handle that, no sweat.” The day arrived. The ship and the sailors looked razor sharp. General Bowser, the Admiral, a US Senator, and a Navy Band were on board. The sealed casket was brought aboard and taken below for modification. The ship got underway to the 12-fathom depth. The sun was hot. The ocean flat. The casket was brought aft and placed on a catafalque. The chaplain spoke. The volleys were fired. The flag was removed, folded, and I gave it to the father. The band played “Eternal Father Strong to Save.” The casket was raised slightly at the head and it slid into the sea. The heavy casket plunged straight down about six feet. The incoming water collided with the air pockets in the outer shell. The casket stopped abruptly, rose straight out of the water about three feet, stopped, and slowly slipped back into the sea.  The air bubbles rising from the sinking casket sparkled in the in the sunlight as the casket disappeared from sight forever. The next morning I called a personal friend, Lieutenant General Oscar Peatross, at Headquarters Marine Corps and said, “General, get me out of here. I can't take this anymore.” I was transferred two weeks later. I was a good Marine but, after 17 years, I had seen too much death and too much suffering. I was used up. Vacating the house, my family and I drove to the office in a two-car convoy. I said my goodbyes. Sergeant Jolly walked out with me. He waved at my family, looked at me with tears in his eyes, came to attention, saluted, and said, “Well done, Colonel. Well done.” I felt as if I had received the Medal of Honor!

The leading weekly law and politics podcast -- LegalAF -- produced by MeidasTouch and hosted by MT founder and civil rights lawyer, Ben Meiselas and national trial lawyer and strategist, Michael Popok, is back for another hard-hitting, thought-provoking look at this week's most compelling developments at the intersection of law and politics, aka Episode 17. The hosts first bring their healthy-brand of skepticism to the $10mm “wrongful death” suit to be filed by the family of January 6th insurrectionist Ashli Babbitt. Next, Ben and Popok bring the LAF listeners fully up to speed on the trials and tribulations of New York's “Love Governor” Andrew Cuomo accused by 11 (!) former (and current) female employees of sexual misconduct. Then, the hosts explore SCOTUS' recent attack on the CDC's nationwide residential eviction ban, and the Garland DOJ's intervention to oppose the Realtors' efforts to overturn a limited CDC eviction moratorium based on rising Delta data. Talking about the Delta variant, Ben and Michael first examine the legality of Florida Governor DeSantis' ban of vaccine passports and its impact on the cruise industry, and his ban on mandatory masks for school children even in the face of rising infection and death rates among children in his state. The Analysis Friends then drill down on Texas' Governor Abbott's attempts to interfere with the federal government's “supreme” power to regulate immigration and transport (and detain) immigrants by claiming some feigned concern with the spread of COVID by immigrants, while simultaneously banning face masks and undermining vaccination in his state. Episode 17 ends with a sobering discussion about the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (“JASTA”) federal case filed this past week in New York by 115 “Gold Star” families against major global banks for allegedly profiting from terrorist organizations and governments banking with them, and thereby helping to fund attacks on Americans. Special Easter Egg and Programming Note: Ben gives Popok and the listeners the good news that “Legal AF” is leaving the “MeidasTouch Podcast” nest and moving to its own Medias-produced podcast channel starting with next Sunday's episode. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/meidastouch/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/meidastouch/support
