arlin report: podcasting resumed


I am now podcasting again (Spotify). I had been on hold due to some technical difficulties. I thought when I was recording, when the clock froze, my recording was frozen as well. I have been trying to record since Monday night/Tuesday morning. I noticed late last night/early this morning that I might be able to continue recording even when the clock froze. So I tried that……….yep the clock stopped but I kept talking, not knowing for sure if I was recording. At the end of my talk, I hit the stop recording button, ………….it was frozen. I exited out, went back in and it showed 21 minutes on my recording. I played it to make sure, I trust nothing. Then I had an issue saving it. Exited, went back and saved it successfully. Launched on first attempt! Yeah!!!!

I know you didn’t need to know all the details, but hey, after pretty much being idle for a few days I apparently have a lot to say. Besides if anyone out there is experiencing the same, maybe this will help. I wish someone could have told me that when the clock stops the recording does not. Thing is ……… It isn’t really working properly. The buttons should work. I even changed the batteries in my mouse, thinking the click button wasn’t working all the time. Wasn’t that! Anyway I found a way around it all. I have a tech looking into it. Thanks to him I now know my browser is Google Chrome 89. It was automatically updated to 89. I did not know that. If you don’t know what your browser is you can go to whatsmybrowser.org…………it immediately comes up for you (type that address in your browser, takes you there quickly). I am wondering if updating my browser to 89 has been causing my freezes (which only seem to occur after I have been idle for about 5 minutes).

Have a wonderful day! Glad I could help! 🙂

ARLIN REPORT PODCAST ON HOLD ………..FOR NOW, ISSUES! helpppppp!


There may only be a hand full of people actually interested in this, but, I am putting my podcast on (Anchor/Spotify) hold for now.

I am having issues with my computer. When it sets idle for several minutes it freezes. My mouse will roam fine, but won’t click on anything.

Most of the time this isn’t that big of a problem, however, when I am in Anchor/Spotify trying to record an episode, after a few minutes of recording (mouse isn’t moving so the system thinks while I am recording I am idle) the clock on the recording stops. It was stopping at the 5:01 minute mark. After trying to fix this, I finally got it to where it would stop at the 10:28 minute mark. I just tried another recording moments ago (after having retrieved my site) and it stopped recording at the 12:08 minute mark.

ANYBODY OUT THERE THAT KNOWS HOW TO FIX A FREEZE AFTER BEING IDLE FOR SEVERAL MINUTES, i WOULD CERTAINLY APPRECIATE YOUR ADVICE.

I must be gaining more patience. I had a hellish night trying to retrieve my blog site after having lost it most of the day. I tried retrieving it most of the day unsuccessfully. I had re-installed wordpress over my original site. When I did that it apparently forfeited my site, and asked me if I wanted to create a site. Finally got it right, and was able to retrieve WITHOUT CURSING AT ANY POINT DURING THE PROCESS. THERE IS HOPE FOR ME. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

hear the arlin report on podcasts


Todays podcast from the Arlin Report can be listened to below. First moment will be an ad for Anchor………..where I create my podcasts from…….then a bit of intro music into my podcast. This is new to me, I’m a little rough along the edges for now; should get better………I hope. I have learned that writing my blog and converting it to the podcast does not sound as good as just recording directly. No script another words. I just need to get used to that. A new radio voice! Bare with me. Or Bear with me, whichever you prefer! 🙂 yes I know the difference.

I have now launched three podcast from the Arlin Report. Down below are the links were the podcasts are available. You can see them all on Spotify. Go to Spotify (you may need to set up your own account, free!), click on PODCASTS from the category list, and do a search for Arlin Report………..should come up! Here are some other locations with the links below: PocketCasts, Breaker, and RadioPublic. Google Podcasts will soon be available as well.

Not yet available on Google Podcasts, they are working on it. Available soon!

I am not going to worry about censorship. I will say what I think, when sharing my opinion. That is honesty! I will not worry about, political correctness, that’s not honesty.

ARLIN REPORT AND THOUGHT(S) OF THE DAY: NOW PODCASTING ON ANCHOR


Hello everyone! I hope someone is listening anyway! I have been thinking of podcasting for quite sometime now. Originally I thought it would be an audio & video podcast, but I like starting out as simple as I can being a rookie caster. Anchor appears to be perfect for doing just that, so for now we’ll just go audio! I don’t know if caster is the right podcasting terminology, I have a lot to learn about this new venture. We learn from our mistakes and I’ve learned much today and it is only 2:27 PM Central Time here in Missouri at this moment the 10th of March 2021 (time of day I am prepping this, when you hear this it will be the 11th). I apologize for any bumps and annoyances we may have along the way, hope you’ll bare with me! Just to take a moment, I chose Anchor, as I said because of the simplicity. Anchor will take episodes (posts) from my WordPress blogging site, and convert them to podcasts, and distribute them to mediums such as Apple Store and Google Play. I have the option of using my own voice or Anchor’s digital voice. I launched a very short episode Wednesday morning as a test run and used the Anchor voice. I will be using my voice for future podcasts. It was a very easy process and if I can do it anyone can. I am not a computer geek by any means. I would strongly consider anyone interested in creating their own podcast to consider using Anchor. Also, it’s FREE! So, lets get to it!

I posted my first blog back in July of 2014……… it’s been nearly seven years now. Michael Brown, Officer Darren Wilson and the City of Ferguson, must be what got me kick started. Most people knew nothing about Ferguson, Missouri. Now most of the world knows something. I call my blogging site the Arlin Report. Most days I post an article I refer to as Arlin Report Thought(s) of the day. Thought(s) of the day can be anything I have on my mind, any topic, possibly a rant, whatever, it does not have to be political or on current events. Arlin Report is for the most part on politics and current events, any event of my choosing. It may be on the St. Louis Cardinals, the Blues, downtown St. Charles events or anything actually. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump kept me busy. I just looked back moments ago, in 2014 Glenn Beck said: “Hillary Clinton would be the next president”. I’ve had a lot to say about Hillary over the last few years. And, she does not go away! We’ll talk about things in the news, reports on all things political/governmental, etc., based on facts and stories that I can confirm. If I can’t, I will say I can not confirm, but it may be a story circulating. I will call a rumor a rumor, like a duck is a duck. I will often share my opinion, but I will say it is my opinion and I could be right or I could be wrong. I call myself a conservative…………… does that make me right? I’d rather be right than left!! Especially in today’s America, today’s world!

In this my first launching of this podcast, I think you should know a little more about me! Podcasting seems to be a bit more personal than posting a blog. Probably because its hearing the voice behind the words. I am a 68 year old male will turn 69 in August. Yes I know I am a man! God gifted me with certain physical features that indicates and should leave no doubt, for me anyway. By the way, I will not engage in ridiculous political correctness here. In fact I may go out and buy Dr. Seuss if he is still on the shelves, so I can read it to my younger grandkids or let them enjoy reading Cat in the Hat. I was born in Lompoc, California in 1952. 1952, sounds like enough time to have built a lot of history. I have not been back to Cali since. I was born on an army base, Camp Cooke. My father was deployed to Korea from there. My mom and I took a train back to Salem, Illinois. When my father returned from Korea, thankfully with all his limbs, we moved to St. Louis. That was how I made my way to Missouri. We lived just above the Bourbeuse River, on a big hill located at a place called the Twin Bridges. No such bridges there now. We moved to St. Clair, MO when I was about 4. From there when I turned 10 we moved 7 miles to Union, MO. I grew up in Union, went to Union High School, and surprising to some, even graduated. I attended East Central College in Union and transferred to Missouri Southern State College (now University), in Joplin in 1972. I played soccer at Missouri Southern and earned a B.A. Degree with a major in Political Science. Should have listened to the wisdom of my father, major in something besides PolySci. My greatest learning experience in Joplin was how to survive a tornado.

I have had a couple of failed marriages, but have 3 wonderful children. They have given me 8 grandkids to enjoy. 5 boys and 3 girls. Youngest girl turns 2 this month. Oldest grandson is 18, looking for a college to attend in Culinary Arts. Currently I enjoy a wonderful relationship with my significant other for about 15 years now. Going to finish things off with her, hopefully a ways down the road yet.

I spent 3 years working in a coal mine in east central Illinois. I gained a lot of valuable experience as a Grievance Committee Chairman in our local union. I could spend hours podcasting about my time in the coal mine and on the industry. We’ll do that someday. Lots of stories there. I spent 3 years on a golf course as an assistant pro, and belonged to the local St. Louis PGA. It was a fun job, but didn’t get out on the course to play as much as you would think. Still played a lot though. I was a purchasing agent for a machine shop a few years and hated it! For about 15 years I was in banking. 3 years as a teller and teller supervisor. Hey I needed a job! Was in the International Banking Department with U.S. Bank for about 12 years. Not as glamorous as it sounds. I have been retired for 3 years, now and spend most of my time playing golf, fishing and working on this blog and podcast.

I was a city alderman for the City of Union, Missouri for 8-1/2 years. I loved doing it. I enjoyed serving and helping the city progress. I was called Annexation Arlin by some, as our city limits expanded. As chairman of the Personnel and Finance Committee, I was instrumental in getting our old swimming pool replaced with a modern facility. The project turned out beautifully after about 1-1/2 years in committee. I also coached youth and adult (player coach) soccer in Union. I was Chairman of the Franklin County Youth Fair for 2 years. That is pretty much the extent of my public service. Oh and I was a Cub and Boy Scout. No sexual harassment in our troops!!!

We are currently living in St. Charles, Missouri; however we are probably closer to St. Peters, Missouri than St. Charles. We love the area, lots of restaurants, close to two of the countries largest rivers, with lots of history. So far statues haven’t been tore down, I haven’t heard of any anyway! Lots of golf courses close driving distances. Quick access to the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues games. Hopefully all the fans can return soon! This country should take up the Nike slogan “Just Do It”!

I hope I haven’t bored you and lost too many of you so far. I just thought for the first podcast you should know more about who this Arlin character is. My name is Arlin Luttrell. I probably should have told you that from the beginning. As you can tell I am no Rush Limbaugh! The most we had in common was being from Missouri, conservatism and a sense of humor,! Our biggest difference, Rush was a Kansas City Royals fan, I am a Cardinal fan! Could have been worse, he could have been a Chicago Cubs fan. I miss hearing Rush’s voice on the radio already.

Tomorrow, I want to talk a bit about some things that are supposedly happening behind the scenes sort of speak, that the Main Stream Media is not addressing. They could be, they just choose not too. Part of that is they want to ignore or deny it exists. The Great Reset, or the Great Awakening! From what I understand from others is there is 2 resets, one from the bad guys and one from the good guys; and the good guys have already won. The bad guys being the Deep State/or the Cabal as they are known internationally. Yes QAnon has been involved in this. Their claims and predictions anyway. I have several sources I have been listening in on regarding these events. They are very credible, for the most part. They do get it wrong sometimes. Sometimes! Child and human trafficking, pedophilia is a huge issue, greater than and more sickening than we could ever have imagined. Satanic rituals are part of it, and this I know to be true! So I hope you can join in tomorrow; I promise it won’t be as boring as today! My short term goal is not to get censored!!

I always welcome your comments and criticism, just be polite please. You can stand firm and adamantly oppose me, just be civil. I don’t want to have to yell back! You can make comments at my blog ArlinReport.com or email me at aluttrell22@yahoo.com. I will respond when I can. Thank you so much for being here today. Be safe!

aRLIN REPORT THOUGHT(S) OF THE DAY: RANTING……..AND I HAVE SOME!


Let us start off with CHINA. The commie nation that Joe Biden gave favored status to a long time ago. Apparently the Biden’s believe they have this partnership with China. It would appear so. Looks very much like the Biden’s (and lets make this clear only Joe has anything of significance to give up or back in return) owes China something. I doubt all they (the Biden Crime Family) have given up to now is all that is owed! Also looks like China helped boost Creepy Joe into position to deliver more! China: enemy #1 (above Russia) of the American people. Joe Biden Family: A great asset of China, top buddy, easiest piece of meat to fall prey to the CCP. China probably use Hunter Biden and Joe as examples in their propaganda and world domination training films. Commie students must be laughing their skinny little asses off!

Suckers: We the American people. We are responsible for letting this happen. We didn’t trigger it, but we haven’t adjusted our sights. The China influence……on now, everything! I went Christmas shopping again yesterday, and wasn’t especially successful. I checked to see where everything I picked up was made. CHINA, CHINA AND MORE F….ING CHINA! It has been like this for a long time. I thought it was getting a wee bit more balanced! NO! Not from my perspective anyway. I WANT TO BUY AMERICAN MADE! I worked in the International Dept. of a major bank for years, I knew (know) how much business, importing and exporting business there is between the U.S. and China. China still has the scale largely and unfairly tilted in their favor. Trump has helped greatly with balancing it out (a wee bit). China Joe would (if not will) escalate that tilted scale back towards China so that everything just pours their way. I want American products on the shelves! They can be made here and they can be sold here…….and at fair labor cost and fair sales prices. It does not take slave labor! The prices on the junk from China ARE NOT CHEAP! The costs are high and the products are inferior compared to American products (as far as quality……..).

Enough on China ………. for now!

I am considering doing a pod cast. I am thinking something in line with Arlin Report of the Day… however I’d like to lean towards things of interests, concerns for seniors. I don’t really see much out there that addresses our senior population. I have experienced enough and am willing to research enough, I think I can touch on some of their concerns or things they need to be concerned with ……….throw up red flags and caution flags to our seniors. I hate to see people hurt, if they would have had a little heads-up. I don’t want our retirement and end of days being preyed on by predators……..not if I can help. Let me know what you think of this idea and if you think I be good at it? Yes needing a boost, I just want to know there would be an interested audience. This wouldn’t be just for seniors, hopefully I can raise some issues of interest to everyone! I really would like some feed-back here! Thanks.

Oh and I’d have a hard time not inserting SOME political chaotic discussion in the mix! Can’t help it.

I almost forgot! Another big rant here: Churchill Downs has decided to more than double the ticket prices for the 2021 Kentucky Derby! We were to go this past year but of course COVID screwed that up. It was to be a first, bucket list event for me. But I am not paying $3,000 for a ticket. I was willing to pay the $1,300 this past year; reserved, under roof and food and drinks included. BUT $3,000.00 !!!! They are trying to make up the difference from those that attend (50% capacity) for those empty seats. Sounds like they are trying to make up some of the lost revenue from the empty track from this years Derby as well. So disappointing.

arlin report thought(s) of the day: only had this one thought (on my golf swing), then I read something that really took me off course


I wasn’t really going to post on my thought of the day today, didn’t really have anything in mind……politically speaking. My thoughts for a day are not always political though. I was thinking about my golf swing. Pulling a bit too much. But I worked on it, and we’ll see how goes at the course tomorrow. That is really all I had on my mind today………until I saw a post with the question: Will Bill Barr go to jail when all of this is over? I didn’t read the post except that headline. I didn’t feel like I needed to. It pretty much sounds like stating what it is you are doing and accuse your political enemy of doing it instead. (You be Washingtonians in gov.) Be the first to accuse. And just what is meant by “……….all of this……”?

Liberals are so good at making accusations against Republicans that they (Democrats) are doing. Perfect example: Adam Schiff. Look at all the accusations and whining he has done, and he may be the most crookedest politician in Washington; at least in the House. There are others close behind.

Truth be told; just about everybody in D.C. could be/should be in jail.

KOMMONSENTSJANE – LEADERS, PRODUCTS OF DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA? — kommonsentsjane

Wow, this was 6 years ago when I posted. Looks more evident today than back then. And………here we are today, and I am still blogging. Have we made a difference? Awaken! Thanks Jane for reposting.

Arlin report thought(s) of the day: much on my mind, but little to say


I have so many mixed thoughts (not mixed up, not confusion) today, all scrambled within in me, many related to the other and some related to nothing; it is difficult to translate into words. So, I will wait until I have them sorted to say anything at all, of substance.

I will say this: I see words written that people are stressed being locked inside. No one has locked you inside (in most cases anyway, unless you are in fact ill). If you are staying home, as you should, that doesn’t mean you can’t get out on your deck, your patio, or porch…….and yard. Get some sunshine. It’s good for health, and that includes mental health.

Arlin report thought(s) of the day: my daughter the nurse


Image result for photo of Arlin Report
That is not my daughter, it’s me, Arlin.

Yesterday, I got a call from my daughter while I was on the stationary bike, (I won’t admit where). Lets just say she lectured me, that I could do that at HOME. No…..no I can’t I only have a treadmill at home, and its harder on these old knees. I have other equipment she reminded me, at HOME. Yes, yes I do. I got her point. P.S. ………..I was still practicing social distancing. But, THANK YOU ANYWAY NURSE!!!

Get to see 3 of my grandkids today since school is closed and the NURSE would rather not take them to day care. Not a problem, we’re all healthy and I enjoy them.

Hope your day goes as well as mine. Too nasty out to take them fishing though.
