was entitled, simply entitled, about the assassination of Patrice Emery Lumumba. 00:28:28
There was one hour documentary kind of like watching the news reels of Pearl Harbor or something like that rise. I learned that 00:28:33
there was actually a movie about that, kind of like the movie Pearl Harbor with Josh Hartnett and Jennifer Garner. So this is the 00:28:38
movie. It's simply titled Linda. I went to the High Plains Library and they couldn't find it in their system. They said, well, 00:28:43
they thought maybe UNC would be a good place to check. So I went to scan it and turned out they had one that James, Robert make 00:28:48
sure library. 00:28:53
It's about the assassination between Summary and Movement 1960. 00:28:58
And it's I I must admit it's not. They're the same hearted. 00:29:02
But this movie came out 20 years ago, 40 years after the assassination actually occurred. 00:29:05
This is where the Belgian Congo chasing the Democratic Republic of Congo and the we of course in in the North Atlantic Treaty 00:29:11
Organization with Belgium. So we're trying to drag our CIA into this. 00:29:16
And I didn't realize we had much of an association with it until I I saw this. The CIA was ended up to their eyeballs. 00:29:22
So there's also this stuff had been going on. For example, you know, remember just a few years back, about 10 years ago, Russian 00:29:29
agent was assassinated by a drop of polonium and his team, another Russian agent died in a England hospital. He had been shot with 00:29:36
a pellet gun with a little tiny pellet of of plutonium. Him apparently in the back leg and he died a week later. Radiation 00:29:43
sickness. This stuff's been going on for decades, including Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated our own president, John Fitzgerald. 00:29:51
So I'm going to keep our eyes on some of these alliances that we get ourselves into. I know there's a lot of Republicans out there 00:29:59
and. 00:30:03
National Defense and security and all that while the Democrats with years of. 00:30:07
Taking care of everybody. 00:30:12
But our taxpayers cannot be simply the. 00:30:14
Wolves, policemen. And we cannot pay for all of this stuff that goes on with the millions in in the local budgets, the billions in 00:30:16
the state budgets, the trillions in the federal budget. 00:30:21
Just because they got the federal government has $6 trillion budget does not mean it's going to solve the world's problems. 00:30:26
Thank you. 00:30:32
Any other public comment? 00:30:33
All right, this meeting is adjourned. 00:30:35

there was actually a movie about that, kind of like the movie Pearl Harbor with Josh Hartnett and Jennifer Garner. So this is the 00:28:38
movie. It's simply titled Linda. I went to the High Plains Library and they couldn't find it in their system. They said, well, 00:28:43
they thought maybe UNC would be a good place to check. So I went to scan it and turned out they had one that James, Robert make 00:28:48
sure library. 00:28:53
It's about the assassination between Summary and Movement 1960. 00:28:58
And it's I I must admit it's not. They're the same hearted. 00:29:02
But this movie came out 20 years ago, 40 years after the assassination actually occurred. 00:29:05
This is where the Belgian Congo chasing the Democratic Republic of Congo and the we of course in in the North Atlantic Treaty 00:29:11
Organization with Belgium. So we're trying to drag our CIA into this. 00:29:16
And I didn't realize we had much of an association with it until I I saw this. The CIA was ended up to their eyeballs. 00:29:22
So there's also this stuff had been going on. For example, you know, remember just a few years back, about 10 years ago, Russian 00:29:29
agent was assassinated by a drop of polonium and his team, another Russian agent died in a England hospital. He had been shot with 00:29:36
a pellet gun with a little tiny pellet of of plutonium. Him apparently in the back leg and he died a week later. Radiation 00:29:43
sickness. This stuff's been going on for decades, including Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated our own president, John Fitzgerald. 00:29:51
So I'm going to keep our eyes on some of these alliances that we get ourselves into. I know there's a lot of Republicans out there 00:29:59
and. 00:30:03
National Defense and security and all that while the Democrats with years of. 00:30:07
Taking care of everybody. 00:30:12
But our taxpayers cannot be simply the. 00:30:14
Wolves, policemen. And we cannot pay for all of this stuff that goes on with the millions in in the local budgets, the billions in 00:30:16
the state budgets, the trillions in the federal budget. 00:30:21
Just because they got the federal government has $6 trillion budget does not mean it's going to solve the world's problems. 00:30:26
Thank you. 00:30:32
Any other public comment? 00:30:33
All right, this meeting is adjourned. 00:30:35
