"J News radio. 6 46 rather 7 46 here on the tide of Don showed you could jump in at 51283605 90 a lot of tragedy a lot of heartache on the 40 Acres this morning, University of Texas linebacker J. Calendar the brother of the former quarterback recently, NFL drafted Sam. Was found dead yesterday in by Austin. Police. Details on his death have not been released on Lee that it was an UN suspicious death in the 1200 block of West 22nd Street, according to police. Jake had been attending the University of Texas since 2019 when he joined the Longhorns football team and had a couple of seasons there and his brother Sam, now going off to the Indianapolis Colts. So what a roller coaster for this family and a great highs and success. And then you, you lose one of your sons. It's just It's just so heartbreaking and tragic. It really is lost their dad back in 2013 died during competing in a triathlon and believe and had a heart attack. So, yeah, they have Dave experienced a lot of lot of pain and a lot of highs in that family. No doubt about it. So it is. Yeah. 7 48 here on the tide of done so you could jump in at 51283605 90. So what do you think about this pilot program? The re imagine Police Cadet academy that could change. Stop pick up and be modified in any moment. My fear, Uh, is that ultimately that Police you're going to be so, um Constrained as far as what they can do and can't do that It is going to make them less effective. We might continue to get members come through a ghost, ultimate, my peers that nobody escaped. Gonna even want to be a cop. After all this what they're going to be subjected to I I just want them to be effective. I want them to be the best police department in the country. That's what every city wants. That would be. What would be when you say effective. What does that look like? How would you know? That it's effective. I want them to be able to do what they feel is the best thing. They is the right thing they to do in a given situation. I don't want them to have to be so bogged down. Maybe. Is there any data? You gotta see to see that they're effective? Well, of course. Crime go down. What are you talking about? Cops only make arrest. They don't put people in jail. They don't prosecute people, right? But But I mean, there's more to it than just cops making an arrest. Yeah. I mean, you gotta have a district attorney that's willing to punish people and not let out known criminals on our streets. So there's you know, there's there's two elements of policing in this city Well, and and the tip of that spirit should be your district attorney, but we have a very weak Week crime friendly district attorney in this city well and then when you've had a City council on mayor that or so homeless friendly in this town, and that's created a problem with crime as well. Increase that so I don't think you can address any of these issues, homelessness, the murder rates and stuff like that. I don't think you could address any of that until you get a grip on the drugs in our city. Really? Yeah. Absolutely. I think drugs on the streets is what fuels the crime. It feels prostitution. It fuels domestic violence. It fuels. You know, the random Carjacking and theft and property break ins. Things like that. Yeah, well, yeah, there's there's probably no argument to that. But I just want our police department. Torus. They're going in my four before. Yeah, There's certain areas that need reform as far as our policing. I'm sure but ultimately I want them to be able to do what they have to do to keep me safe and keep the city safe. I don't want their their minds to be so bogged down with what they think they can do and what they you know they're afraid to do because of possible repercussions, even though that would be ultimately the most effective move. A time given what they're confronted with. I just don't want him to be. I don't want him to be so afraid, Tol, you know, take action against somebody, whether it's pulling their gun or or or what? Because they're afraid what the repercussions might be. You know what I mean? I just want him to be able to do their jobs. Don't pull their gonna whole lot. No, they really don't you? It depends on who you're talking to. But really, they don't. You would think just listening to a few zoom meetings at Austin City Hall that cops are running around just a guns blazing. But I don't know what the number is, but I bet 98% of the cops in America never use their gun. There are cops that go through their whole career. And hardly ever have to even pull their gun. That's that. You mean the whole out of the holster? Yeah, you know that they might have to have their hands on it yet to come in the ready, but that the common contact with hundreds of thousands of traffic stops every year. You know what I mean? Listen. The Austin City Council they voted 911. Yesterday. 94 reinstating the police academy Greg CAS are voted against its Natasha Harper Madison. She abstained being a you know, a courageous community leader. She she abstained. She she was afraid to say yes or no. Even though she's been a source of lot of this controversy, she was still even afraid to say no. Which I thought she would say no to reinstate in the academy. She's gonna abstain, but she had a lot to say last night. Here's what she said. History will remember the 104th cadet class. This is what Harper Madison said after adding that she hopes it's members of this cadet class. Understand the significance of the role in Reimagining public Safety and Austin. She sounded very threatening in her tone last night. During this city council meeting. I want to find this audio. This is this Is Alison Altar right here. I really don't want us to wait until the end of the eight months to make changes. If we find something's not working We really need to adjust and address any issues. That's kind of weird. It's kind of weird because you know the the curriculum could change day to day. Hey, what we taught you last week. Forget that we're going to do something different now We're gonna teach you this. Now. Here's Mayor Pro TEM Natasha Harper Madison that is afraid to weigh in on the vote last night. I am deeply concerned that we may be compromising that trial phase by starting it too soon. Questions about curriculum. Hazing. Transparency still linger a little too loudly for my tastes. Yeah. What's she talking about? The hazing. What's she talking about? The haze. I have no idea was all that Was there hazing involved at the academy. Is that what she's a legend? Not that I've ever heard of. It is that true is because if it's not true that so that's a pretty strong allegation back that up. What you need to be specific on that that e. I don't know what to say about that at all. I'm just I'm just every time I hear you know when you said that Greg costs are voted against Reinstating the Cannon Academy. It's like it's still just it's like what You're you're a city councilman, Your city council person. And and you don't want to do what's best for the city. I don't understand. Why are we try to explain it to you? Because because this is the real source of our increasing crime, the real source of this homeless crisis and it all goes back to the Workers Defense Project. Greg Passaro actually ran years ago before he got into public office. He ran the Workers Defense Project in 2014. Greg CAS are one in District four after four years of being the policy director for the Workers Defense Project and then in 2016..

Evan Brown Fox News, the Austin City Council will vote to use re allocated police dollars for a new forensics lab. Tomorrow's agenda says just under $12 million the council took from a PD's budget will be used to set up an independent and separate forensics lab. A massive backlog Edna cases back in 2016 led to an audit of a PDS lab, and ultimately, it's duties being handed off to private and state labs. Council member Alison Altar does support the independent lab and very concerned, particularly with the DEA work, and I think this is a really important next step.

"Of and put your going to get. We see resistance every time there's an attempted often to create housing, some reinstated camping them from, say, Boston now and tell us the number of attempted Kelly Therefore, once again that lead to unnecessary suffering and death. They just pretty much read from a script that was given to him. I think I don't know this for sure. But these were these were the soldiers of the General of the resistance. You know, City Councilman Gregorio CAS are Thies air, his folks the Democrats, Socialist of Austin, Texas. These air here. This is his people. They were definitely reading from prepared script. Many supporters of the purchase believe the city is able to do this because of millions of dollars. That were relocated last year from the police budget. In fact, that is exactly what Councilman Gregorio Cassard tweeted outs. We've been able to buy a motel and use the money from the police budgets. That's what he was bragging about in the Twitterverse. Well, that information is being shared by Greg Cassard. But others on the city Council, including Alison Altar, Well, they called him a liar. That's just not true, Greg. You know this is not coming from funds ever reallocate it from the police budget, but it's coming from Bonds. Funding, you know, is a good example of the kind of misinformation that is out there in the community that misinformation coming from city Councilman Greg Cassard. You know, the guy that likes to twist the details and manipulate young minds Well, even if it's not true, or if it is true. Ah, I tell you, I wouldn't be bragging about that, Greg that you took money from something that is that does work and Does keep us safe to make sauce in a better place to be, and instead you invest it in something That's a horrible idea. McKenzie Kelly, the new represented for District six, she successfully got a delay on this vote until next week for that motel in her district. And she says, Yeah, yeah, we got a homeless crisis. It needs to be addressed, but she simply trying to represent the people that live in her district heating every proposal as an out of context, emergency is not big policy and silences stakeholders. It's our duty and leaders in the city to provide both transparency. And education regarding this purchase there. You got kids now. Despite that, you know her push back. It's not believe she's going to be successful in blocking that vote next week. No but good for her because this is exactly why she was voted in to be that voice that loan, rational voice that standing there going. Hey, guys, wait one second before we put go ahead, Let's stop and think about this and go about this a better way She's doing that. You know, and how successful she'll be. I don't know, but at least we have somebody that's going to put the brakes on here. A second guy. Well, even those dumb ass is that spoke in the council meeting against everything she's doing. They got the wrong story, say Boston now does not want to criminalize being homeless. That's not the goal. The right just not does not like the way the City Council's addressing this problem. This city Council has failed at addressing this problem for generations. This'll Democrat leading City Council is failed on this issue. They're not the ones to fix failed in honor on a grand scale Todd and done show I was talking my friend Brad. He's the owner and operator of zero rest. No, By the way, you say it forward. You say it backwards. It's spelt the same zero rest and they have a service for all of your surfaces. Carpet tiling, grout rugs, hardwood floors, upholstery, pet treatments, mattresses and air ducts. They do it all at zero rest, and they offer continues in 2021 to clean your carpets Start the new year off with some clean carpets. You should do that occasionally.

"More. You get everything you need to bounce forward call for restrictions and comply. Details Now back to the market. Melinda Show streaming live on the news. Radio, K o b. J ack Good morning 10 46 Great to have you with us illicit is here producing We discussed yesterday afternoon in our 2 to 4 show how Mayor Steve Adler says What we're doing right now to help the homeless is not working. We need to come up with a new plan. The City Council needs to get ideas from the citizens of Austin, he said. We can't go back to what we had when we ban the camping in public places, But we clearly need a new approach. What we're doing right now is not working. Yeah, and we talked a lot about looking towards San Antonio in their haven haven of hope, hoping for hope. Uh, that they implemented in that place is huge. Your talents is 17 buildings on they are helping a lot of people. And we're like, Why are you looking at that kind of idea Or here? Would it help improve? Especially all the tents that we see all over town? Well, you found a story funny enough. Just today in the San Antonio news that was talking about. Well, they're having Tense pop up even though they have that great facility off. Yes, yeah, This is news four. And this is the anchor, setting up a pretty extensive report on what's now happening down in San Antonio, but just listen to how he sets up the intro. On this report and what he says about it. Have you seen that? That is a tent city now underneath the downtown freeway area northeast of downtown, right where highway to anyone becomes, I 37 dozens of tents. Running some comparisons to a mini Austin. Oh, so yes. So we're now known when you see tense in any other city that the homeless are sleeping in. That's a mini Austin. That's great. We've got to do something. We're about to become another Austin. Yes. Well, uh, I wonder how the rest of the Austin City Council will react to Mayor Adler saying, We've got to go back to the drawing board and come up with a new plan. I know Mackenzie Kelly will be all for it. She'll be happy. Absolutely campaigned on this. Absolutely. What do you think Greg Cassara and some of the other Really strong proponents of camping wherever you please. They're going to react. I don't know There was what was it Alison Altar and who was the other one Topo that were That we're not fully on board with this s o. I would imagine they are okay with taking another look, but those that were just staunch Advocates for this. I don't know where they stand. And then you have Governor Greg Abbott, saying he wants state lawmakers to pass a new law that bans camping in public places all over the state. And that would absolutely neutralize cities like Austin that have been allowing this. Here's a real quick comment by the governor do expect to announce a state wide plan to address homelessness that will include a ban on captain And that would start out in the Legislature. They would write it, approve it and send it to him for his signature. Which I think is great. Because in that story that you found from San Antonio, One of the questions were was asked was why isn't That community out. They're able to go into underneath this overpass and tell them Hey, y'all come with us, and he said, you know, some of them just don't want to abide by Regulations that we have out there the rules that we put in place that's not what they're about, and they said, Well, what can be done and it sounded to me. At least the impression I got from the story is that it has to be where It is against the law to do that. And so they won't be able to go there. And then maybe would consider Okay. If I have nowhere else to go, and I want to have some kind of accommodations. I will follow the rules. Right. Here are the numbers 51283605 90. You can call you can Texas. This is really a significant development when Mayor Adler says, Okay. What we're doing now is not working. But I don't think we should go back to the days when we had the ban on public camping. Remember, he's facing a possible Election in May, where the voters force the city to go back to the headband on camping in public places. So he sees what's happening. And then on the other side of him. He has the governor saying, We're going to act in the Legislature. One way or another. We're gonna fix this mess. Campaign Ban will not be allowed are we're going to put it back into place? Yes. And then you also have the governor continuing to apply pressure via the Legislature on funding for the Austin Police Department and City Council member Greg Cas are maintains the governor is the one who's completely wrong on all of this. Yeah, that he's out of touch. He doesn't know what is going on here in Austin or what Austinites want. Yes, This is great costs are with CBS Austin. The governor doesn't know the first thing about Austin's recent police budget. We've had thousands of people marching and asking for Our city to do something to reduce, totally needless police cheese, and our city is trying to do that. The governor is continuing to do political theater and talk about Austin trying to beat up Austin to win political points when what we're trying to focus on civil rights and public safety 1000. You've had thousands of people tell you that they want to do this. How many people live in Austin? 1000 sounds like a slight majority minority. Yeah. Yeah, well, And there's no doubt that many, many people have spoken out against the funding cuts and the moving the money to the other programs. So it's certainly not lopsided. Maybe the people that he listens to or pays attention to the only ones he hears. Say that this is what he would have liked to have done. Absolutely. So They're going to have another meeting tomorrow to find out what you the public would like to see happen from here on with the police department and policing in the city, which I thought, too was interesting. If you are interested in participating in this discussion, you do need to R S d p For that event. But they said that the media is going to focus on and discuss the various scenarios involving the police and asking the community for feedback on those interactions..

"Try to be fixed before the election. So if you have 1700 people that voted twice, you would think that maybe they need to be Charged and maybe not allowed to vote in the next election, or at least one of their votes canceled out. You would think that people who voted illegally from commercial addresses would be purged from the rolls. You think that they would check the death file on purge those who had died to make sure that they don't vote? I mean, we're going to hear testimony this morning from Nevada, where 1500 people were deceased and should not have vote him. 4000 people were illegal. Aliens you go. That's Senator Rand Paul. Just a few minutes ago, he outlined real fax proven things. That was wrong. This election exactly right eggs. And so we knew the mail in scenario was going to be a disaster. It's hard for me to believe that it was ever even a reality. This male incident. Yes, yes.

Well, listen, we finally have ah, least one new City Council member here in Austin following last night's runoff races on the results are in from yesterday's runoff election for the Austin City Council. Mackenzie Kelly won over Jimmy Flanagan. He chaired the Public Safety Committee. That's a big deal because you know, he's one of the big pushers. But you know for de funding police canceling some police cadet classes, things like that. And I think the community said, You know what? Jimmy, you went too far. You have gone too far left and Jimmy And they want to give McKenzie Kelly a real shot Now Alison Altar, she won reelection against Jennifer Virgin. But it was a tight one. Even if she didn't She didn't win, you know, handedly.

"Listening to the best of Todd and don On news, radio, K O B. J Welcome to the Todd and done show. We're live and we want you to join us at 51283605 90. Now here are Todd and done Well. It appears that homelessness the de funding of police, the two major issues that have helped usher in some new blood it. Austin City Hall. Mackenzie Kelly is defeated incumbent Jimmy Flanagan in District six after running a campaign focused largely on public safety. District 10, the incumbent, Alison Alter has won a second term following a very tight runoff race with challenger Jennifer Verdict. Yeah, I don't think we're going to hear. I mean, I don't think that's the last we'll hear from her. I feel like she may be back. Joining us on the side of news line. Matt Mackowiak from the Travis County Republican Party Mad Good morning to you. Give us your rob. Morning after assessment of these two races. Hey, Good morning, guys. It's great to be on again. Yeah. Look, this was a resounding victory. Uh, tonight last night for people that are just satisfied with the direction of the city of Boston. You know, in both cases you had, um, you know, candidates running That were fairly new to politics. I guess Mackenzie had run once before she was really knew back then Jennifer verden never run before. In both these cases. They were the challengers. They were the You know they had the uphill battle, but they had the issues on the side. Because it's pretty clear now Majority of this city does not want to continue with this homeless camping disaster, and they don't want to see the police budget cut by up to one third $150 million. Mackenzie's victory was pretty was really pretty decisive was ended up being around 54 46. Alison Alter barely survived 51 49 shit. All the advantages images of incumbency. She got a lot of help. She apparently one of very large number of mail ballot votes. She won more Alison Altar and in district 10 1 more male Bella votes than the other three candidates. One combined something we need to look into to make sure there's that was entirely entirely, you know, Uh, you know, above board that seems like this was a big window winning Mackenzie Kelly getting a reasonable pro taxpayer. Public safety advocate on the City Council was a big win, and I would assume that those are some of the first issue she wants to address, and I just wonder what kind of support she's going to get with the rest of the City Council because we've kind of heard of fruit grumblings that there are a couple of City Council members that do want to work with her. Yeah, I think that's right. And look, you know if you don't have one reasonable person on the council that will listen. That cares about public safety to cares about taxpayers. Um All you're gonna do is you're going to see the council move in the other direction. So now we have someone who can provide transparency, Someone who can build coalitions, someone who can force votes on important issues. Someone that you know, advocates can can go can go meet with and talk to and know that she'll listen. I know that she wants to be part of the solution. Looking the council if you can put three or four votes together, um, you can you can have an effect, and if you could put six votes together, you can win. So we know that this doesn't I don't want to overstate it. But this this is not mean that Austin is going to change starting, you know, January 1st, but we're gonna have one vote out of out of 11 on the council. But if we're ever going to get to a place where we have a majority on the council where people are pro public safety info, taxpayer, you have to start somewhere on. This is a great place to start. Mackenzie's energetic She's She's a working mom. She understands the community. She understands these issues She understands a district she represents, and she built an incredible campaign with volunteers and enthusiasm. They knocked on thousands and thousands and thousands of doors his past six or nine months. She deserved this win. On its have 2.1 last thing out. Jimmy Flanagan has been chair of the Public Safety Committee, a city council. He has been basically the ringleader behind this defund. The police re imagine the police effort. This was a resounding defeat for that movement last night, absolutely resounding defeat, and every single person on the council needs to reassess what they've done for the last two years, and what the City council run offs should tell them about the direction that voters want the city to go. You think that's why the City Council is kind of leaning back towards maybe having AH, April cadet class? I do. I think it's a recognition that they made a tremendous mistake. You know that that in some ways is the single most indefensible decision that they've made, which is really saying something that class that was, I think that significant minority members. They've gone to the entire training process. And they decided at the last minute when they've gone through training when they're ready to become a full police officers to basically, you know, suspend their graduation for no reason at all. No explanation. Absolutely outrageous talking about intercourse. I'm sorry. Go ahead. You're talking with Matt Mackowiak, Travis County Republican Party. Martin. We are up against the clock, man. I just want to squeeze in a couple of other things. Mitch McConnell yesterday says this election is over. It's time to move on. And the GOP needs to start focusing on new things. Your thoughts on on that. Yeah, I've kind of two thoughts about it one. You know, it is now. Absolutely. Joe Biden is gonna get sworn in on January. 20th. You know, I wish that were the case is supported the president for reelection. I thought his first term had a tremendous number of important achievements. But now there really is no pathway left. Um And you know, people are gonna start to accept that over time Now. Secondly, though, I do believe, um you know legitimate legal challenges should be pursued. I don't believe this election head zero voter fraud. Anyone that believes that is really not being serious. We need to understand better how these mail ballots went out. You know, Pennsylvania four years ago, the 200,000 mail ballots this time we have 2.5 million. You know, we have to know. We have to understand whether those were illegally cast ballots. Not be important to understand that so I support you. No reasonable. Legal efforts to present evidence and make these make the case and I hope Republicans do that going forward should President Trump stop raising money in the state of Georgia? I believe so because the way that set up is he's taking a pretty big percentage of it. We got three weeks to save the country. If the Democrats won the two seats in Georgia on January 5th..

Well, Let's just let's be very thing. Yeah, I'm right there with you. E. Let's be very clear with Jimmy Flanagan in office and Alison Altar in office. Your property taxes have shot up through the roof. The homeless problem has gotten worse. Under their leadership, morality. A PD has plummeted.

They're not gonna do that They're not going to reinstate the funding for that. There would be too much protesting in the streets by those radicals. But Jamie, right, McKenzie Kelly.

It's hard for me to believe that it was ever even a reality. This male incident. Yes, yes. Absence, devoting a very good place for that very important thing that we have for those that just either another country or can't get to the pole, But But the whole Mayland thing. How could that be accurate? How could that go? Well, that is not set up. There's no way you can set that up. For that to be dead travel, legitimate result legitimately accurate results.

Well, listen, we finally have ah, least one New City Council member here in Austin following last night's runoff races on the results are in from yesterday's runoff election for the Austin City Council. McKinsey Kelly won over Jimmy Flanagan. He chaired the Public Safety Committee. That's a big deal because you know, he's one of the big pushers. But you know for de funding police canceling some police cadet classes, things like that. And I think the community said, You know what? Jimmy, You went too far. You've gone too far left Jimmy. And they want to give McKinsey Kelly a real shot Now Alison Altar, she won reelection against Jennifer Virgin. But it was a tight one. Even if she didn't She didn't win, you know, handedly.

Mackenzie Kelly came out on top with 52%. It's your tin Alison Altar was seeing convent. She secured her seat yet again with 51% of the vote. Her opponent, Jennifer Verden, got 49%. So both of these very close races, But the major takeaway tonight is that Jimmy plan again will no longer be on City Council. He had a very contentious race with McKinsey, Kelly. He represented that seat since 2016. And tonight, Flanagan hosted a watch party and just a few minutes ago, he did concede to the race. Here's what he had to say. But it doesn't mean that any of this work ends and I am excited for the rest of my colleagues who I know. We'll continue this work and the future Council member who I, I hope Does her best.

She's been the incumbent. She's already served. One term on City Council shall go on to serve. Another one. But this was a close race.

Now here are Todd and done. Is it time to forget about Trump and start thinking about the G GOP Well. That is the message from Mitch McConnell, pleading with his fellow senators yesterday to not force a public vote on challenging Biden's electoral college victory because it would split the party and fail the electoral college. Has spoken. So today, I want to congratulate President elect Joe Biden. The president elect is no stranger to the Senate. He's devoted himself to public service for many years, said a majority leader, Mitch McConnell, urging his fellow Republicans not to challenge the electoral votes. When Congress moves to certify the election for a Joe Biden yesterday, electors met and all 50 states. So as of this morning, our country has officially President elect and the vice president there, Ugo and he also said he had some kind words for the VP. Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president elect. For the very first time. Be honest with you. It kind of feels like the GOP is already turned its back on Donald Trump. Yeah, does already feels like they have. Yeah, and just a handful of that has been speaking out, so you know, but but, yeah, it feels like the GOP has already moved on. I mean, you know, we talked about a lot yesterday. A lot of people just don't feel that this is over and maybe in some respects, it's not. But I think there's also something healthy about eventually. We all have to move on whatever. It's gonna be Sure we've got the midterm Elections going to be very important man. Very important. Maybe more important than ever. This runoff race in the city and the state of George is incredibly important as well. Hey, you could jump in. We'd love to get your thoughts. Your reaction at 51283605 90 reading this morning that Texas A and M is investigating a large case of cheating on line. I guess an online finance classes. It's not a good place to begin your cheating career finance majors. If you start cheating in college on finances, then it makes it difficult for you to get a job in the finance community. When you graduate gonna look good on the resume their how good that Aggie ring looks. They're not gonna want to hire you. If you've got cheating in your background and your finance education is gonna be out there. While the Texas Tribune reports faculty notice, students were answering questions just too quickly. University officials there asking students to come forward and admit their guilt, those that do not face suspension and expulsion. Really? You think and him's gonna kick a bunch of students out because they cheated. Really? You think they're going to do that? And pick that scab and make it worse? Really? And do you think people are gonna come forward and say Yeah, I'm sorry. I cheated. Can I do that test again? Come forward or you're going to be suspended or expelled from campus. I'm sorry. I'm missing your point here. What? What? I just don't think they're gonna come forward. Picked the scab. What scabby? You talking just just a and M want to say that they kicked 200 kids off campus because they're cheaters. Do they really want to come out and say that? Well, it looks like it doesn't look good. Oh, no, It's not. Not probably not great for recruiting. Yeah, no, not probably not a great promotional tool one dishing it over now that more people are online education, working from home those kind of classes, you know, I mean, there's a possibility of this. I know, but the thing about that is now if you do pull a move like that, unfortunately, because of where we are digitally, that's always going to be out there. It's gonna be after you. There's no there's there's no hiding that it does tarnish chosen field is not gonna be welcoming it tarnishes, you know Adam's image letter. It does. Do you know what I'm saying? Yeah. I mean, yeah, that's that's not good. That'll haunt you, man. Well, it's just Yeah, it's well. It's another yet another example. How anything digitally, I's gonna be less secure. Here's another example of that There's rampant cheating going on. Well, there could be. I mean, these are individuals these you know these these people were probably cheating and skating through life and cutting corners to begin with right, well universities across Texas nation why they're seeing an increase in online cheating since the start of the pandemic of students. It'll take virtual courses and test remotely, you know, with less supervision. Yeah, already on unusual fall semester, wrapping up the Texas A and M University officials sent out an email in early December just a few days ago to hundreds of students in an online finance class that set off a panic factory reported concerns of cheating on a very large scale to the Aggie Honor System office and after they noticed some students in the class answered online test too quickly. Later, faculty discovered the entire exams posted on a homework help website that has become synonymous with cheaters. Well, maybe this is ah, good thing for the future.

Mackenzie Kelly is the big winner. With all the votes tallied up for the Austin City Council race challenger Mackenzie Kelly upset incumbent Jimmy Flanagan by 9% points. In the runoff election with more than 54% of the vote in district 10. It was an even tighter race with incumbent Elson Alter beating out her challenger, Jennifer for den by three points, keeping her council seat with 51% of the vote. John Cooley News radio K O b. J Right, There you go. Congratulations, Mackenzie Kelly. A big Congratulations. And very, very timely, very, very timely. Given what were experiencing this in this city right now. It's it's like, you know, just just just came in and swooped in, and hopefully we'll kind of help save the day. Maybe so. It's just a least get these people thinking she's She's a tough one. But let's let's be clear. She's just a break. In this process, you know, change this City Council. I know she needs help, and I think she's gonna get some help. I've actually talked with a few others in that city council that want to work with her. Some of them don't. But there's a couple of others that are starting to stand up to this very aggressive mayor and Greg Cassara and Steve Adler. They're upset, too. They feel as if a couple of them have feel as if they were bullied into the de funding of police. They really didn't want to do it. Yes, Some people have come since and maybe they feel a little inspired to stand strong. On this issue. Maybe I'm hoping that's what is their thinking is that that would be good. That would be good. If that could really happen if that can still happen in the world, and especially still happened here in Austin, Texas. Yeah, that would. That would be quite encouraging. So Joe Biden his naming Cabinet members, and he has chosen a transportation secretary. The mayor from South Bend, Indiana. Pete Buddha Jet? Yeah. You have trouble saying his name Buddha Ditch Now, ButI. Think of boot edge edge boot at it. Yanks say that boot edge edge. There you go. No problem. Pretty much. Just a little faster. That's how you say Tej. Yeah. 38 years young and he ran a solid campaign, according to the Democrats, is scrapping a little bit well, he won. The Iowa caucus eventually dropped out of the race, and he endorsed Joe Biden help him raise money. Despite biting have run an ad mocking pizza in on his poultry experience of their they're together now and, uh, Pete's gonna run the Transportation Department for the There you go. He's smart guy, and he's also in there. Let's speak with us be quite honest. He's also in there because he's an openly openly gay man. That also looks good. That also looks good. You think that's the reason with that? That's a big chunk of it right there. That looks good for Joe Biden have been openly gay. I hope that's not the main reason why he selected enough. The main reason he's a very smart guy. I'm sure he will have a lot to offer. He is he sharp man. I I I was very impressed with him. But the fact that you know if I was him, you know, I would also be kind of let down a little bit. Just you got to know I'm also in here because I'm gay. Why they referring to miss the first gay Cabinet member? Openly gay. Okay, openly gay. Okay, coming because she you don't know. No, He's not the first game. He can't be. No, there's no way right. But he is apparently apparently the first openly gay kid. Sure, I I guess. Well, he's gonna manage nearly $90 billion and budget money Plus oversee the agency that regulates railroads, trucking and aviation is nomination makes it if it makes it through the Senate, Pete would be the first openly lbgt Q plus person to become a member of the presidential Cabinet. People are out of that's all right. That's great again. So you're all right. There you go. This is great news for Austin, Texas. Because Mayor Steve Adler in Pete's Our bestest of friends, they are B F F's, and they're connected on the TIC Tac's in the instagrams, and they do dance videos and share it back and forth with each other all day long. And, Yeah, I have a call. Someone goes. Hey, Woody. What do you do? Well, when Pete comes to town, he stays at the W with the mayor they do on There you go. I mean, the reason why I say this is good news is because, um, it's not a done deal yet, but federal dollars air desperately needed as part of that property that voters voted to increase their own personal taxes on that's right, and federal dollars are desperately needed to make that happen, or else I'm gonna have to come back with another big bond package on you. If you're somebody that believes that property will do anything to make this city a bit better short and it won't Well, there you go. So if we do get some federal dollars It could be because of the buddy buddy relationship between idler MPD. That's right. Could I have some money could have some money.

Listen. The runoff races in Georgia said to become the most expensive Senate campaigns in well, almost world history. I would think the races which you know remain undecided from Election Day back in November, pit Republicans Kelly La Flor and David Perdue against Democrats Raphael Warnicke and John Joseph, respectively. Yeah, the stakes are very high. Now, if the GOP can hold on to one of those seats that we got a majority in the Senate and be better positioned to maintain some control in the Senate, with lots on the line, that race has drawn a whole lot of interest in a whole lot of money from corporate America on the GOP side, Blackstone, Stephen Schwarzman and citadels Ken Griffin are among the top donors to the political action Committee. Linked with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, Netflix C L. Reed Hastings contributed $500,000 to the Democrat pack. But the party is focusing more on smaller donors support and it's online front fundraising Pat Platform processed about $112 million in donations from November, the fourth through November. The third, the GOP equivalent processed $55.6 million. That's where we are. The vote is scheduled for January, the fifth but in person early voting it starts today. I don't remember a Senate race with this kind of importance on it in my lifetime, and I don't remember locally City Council race with this kind of importance on with runoff District six and district 10 both Mackenzie Kelly and District six and Tomorrow is the big day. Tomorrow is where You go out and vote for your city Council person in the in the run offs in your district, So please go out and do it very important. Get it, We're going to get into that. Coming up at 7 52 runoff races District six and District 10 La Flor and other Republicans are worried about Georgia signature verification efforts. Republican Senator Kelly La Flor says these melon ballots will again be a key factor in both races. But looking forward. What we're doing is make sure that we have More signature verification were in the courts right now fighting for that. We've also brought in 4000 additional poll watchers because it's so important that on Lee legal votes are counted and that all illegal votes are thrown out. There are 250 open investigations now into the November 3rd election here in Georgia. Including unorganized ation run by my opponent, Raphael Warnock and Stacey Abrams. So we have to get to the bottom of that. And we've also today called on the secretary of state to release those new voter registrations, names. Voter registration closed last week. Voting starts today. We need to understand who is coming in to vote. So we've called on him this morning to release that. There you go. That story there from Fox News. It's a very important race and you write down these two runoff races here locally are very important as well. I mean, if you want to send a message to this city council that you're sick and tired of the high taxes, the de funding of police, the homeless problem, the traffic and congestion problem the mayor embracing, you know, climate change in the Paris accord and all that stuff, if if you really want to push back against that deep D s a progressive mindset. Then this is your this. This is your last chance in Austin, Texas, and we got four candidates that are vying for District six District 10. Those two races. You got newcomers trying to push the incumbents out in district 10. You got Jennifer Bearden up against Alison Altar. Altar is the incumbent and I'll be I'll be honest with you. Voter turnout in both of these races has been kind of low. And when there's low voter turnout that really starts to scare me about any kind of change Mackenzie Kelly going up against downtown Jimmy Flanagan. And I think maybe sometime this week today Today and tomorrow tomorrow's election day, and he's run off race is your last chance to send a message to this city Council? Who are you voting for? Flanagan, McKinsey, Kelly Alter Jennifer Bearden. Which of the candidates do you think address or are that you closely identify with on either side of the aisle? I think this is important discussion today and tomorrow morning at 51283605 90. Unfortunately, there's there's element I guess of voter fatigue. Right now and people just after after the last election, maybe just want to move on and not think about it. But the fact is these air so crucial to the future Boston They really are, If if Jimmy Flanagan, Alison Altar when the incumbents win. Does that change your opinion of Austin, Texas? Yeah, it does. It does. We have got to have. It's going to be very hard for conservative to to have a ton of create a ton of momentum back. I'd love to have a Democrat in office. Oh, yeah, that's real real Democrat Real Democrat on the I could appreciate a real Democrat in office right on the City council. Good old school Democrat would be so welcome, right? They got him..

We have learned that the firefighters association supports Alison Altar and Jimmy Flanagan, the incumbents in District six and district 10 and not Jennifer Bearden and Mackenzie Kelly, who are trying to win those races. The firefighters Association supports the incumbents. Basically Bob Nick's told us that those two incumbents have come around and now support programs that are important to the firefighters union. Right, Right. So I think the big thing now is the big term are now its first responders. So when you talk about police Imagine a healthy a lot of times when police responded, You know, whatever Call it might be a f D and E M s or right. There worked hand in hand from first off. Let me say that I am a police officer. So I completely understand the dynamic between any of the India, Mass. However, by them supporting those two candidates they've effectively sold their soul from money is what it is. Well, here's here's what I got from Bob Nicks, and he may want to phrase it a different way. The reason the association supports the incumbents. Is because they were afraid that they might defund the firefighters. Bob Nix was very clear that these two council members, these incumbents well funnel money into programs. The firefighters like So they're they're going with ease, because they're afraid they may get defunded and I understand that if there was I'm not going to speak for the Austin Police Association, But I would venture to say that if There was a movement to the fund, a FT A PT with definitely or the Austin Police Association, the phrase that would definitely step up and say We're not going to stand for this. Absolutely some of the argument that he was talking about don't make any sense when he's talking about Wildfires and code and you know who do you think deals with some of the wildfires that happened in the park? The LAPD parking it, but that's gone. Right. Bye. Then supporting Flanagan Alter they've effectively Sold your soul if there's no other way to say it, and I don't want to disrespect any Austin firefighter. I appreciate everything they do. They're great people. But at some point you have to make a stand. This is not the stand. I got you, man. I'm very surprised by that was just, you know, Fire department. They need the police department and vice versa. They work hand in hand together and it's very, very confusing. It is 8 42 Todd and don show Listen, I hated the way my water tasted at home, and especially given what we pay for City water is ridiculous. It should taste better certainly should be good for you. And it's not. We've got too much chlorine in our water here in the city of Boston, So I did the smart thing. I had Pentair Water solutions, formerly pelican. They came to my home and did a water tests. I'll do this for you as well. And you'll love the way your water taste from every single faucet in your home is a result of having a pinch here.

Interesting tweet this morning from Dennis Ferris. Hey is well, I think he's the president of the Austen retired Police Officers Association. I'm sure I got that name wrong, but it's a bunch of retired men and women. That shows a career to keep all of us safe. And here's what Here's what he had to say and make no mistake. These tough moves by a P D were forced on them by the City Council. Just wait. Jimmy Flanagan. Greg, Pass our Mayor Adler, Alison Altar. We'll claim that they didn't defined any of these units. But what do you think? Cutting 150 Plus positions is going to do to this city. May I? Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, yeah. Especially think about it right now. It's a little bit easier to to, I guess for them to think that this is all gonna be okay, because we're not having a special events going on where we don't have much going on on the streets right now. Think about when we're back to full operation here when we've got a C l when we got south by Southwest when we've got everything else, So many festivals, we have an incredible number of festivals here in this city every year. How do you think that's going to work out? It's going to be absolute. Yes, show, Dr S. Scott says. We're not having any more festivals in Austin. Well, we're not ever again. OK? That's done because, he said, so because I said, so. That's a man with power out there It is where it really is. All right, well in a video speaking of our cops in a video that was released by the police chief, just yesterday, this was a video sent to the rank and file. Talking about all the shuffling and changes that are coming. He's goes on to say that a lot of work went into deciding where we would make these cuts. It was approached with a philosophy that the patrol unit is the backbone of the organization. And they're moving folks from certain departments to this department to that department to try to keep you know the backbone of policing patrol, you know, fully staffed and no more overtime. Anything like that, and that's you know, and we're already short. But many people almost 200 positions and Now we're not going to fill those positions, so and then there's no overtime that could be used. So I just wonder what's going to happen when it comes to response times the crime rate things like that. Especially when you bring in a bunch of evacuees from a couple of Texas cities and they pulled guns on each other. Yeah, that what happened this week? Downtown that went well? Yeah. What a mess. Yeah. Here is Chief Manly from his video presentation last night to the men and women. We do recognize that behind each of these again positions is an officer who worked hard to get to that position. You were trained especially for that position, and you were doing a great job in that position. This is not meant.

"Street right there, Along with all of the cars and trucks, you and light rail cars running. It includes $2 billion to build a tunnel under downtown. $2 billion for the tunnel. Austin City Council member Jimmy Flanagan tells Kxnt end the tunnel is critical. It's a critical part of all of this. Here is his reasoning on that. If you don't build a downtown tunnel, then you are just putting buses or trains in the same traffic as the cars. Yeah. Same traffic as the cars are using. City Council member, Alison Altar is making the same argument. If we don't do tunnel, then we're going to be taking away mobility on the service, and we're going to be taking a whole segment on our streets that are congested right now. So the argument they're making for a tunnel. Ah, is that it's going to avoid the possibility of the rail lines, creating Mohr congestion downtown. So when those railcars leave the tunnel downtown and start using the regular streets all over the rest of the city, what's gonna happen? Well, they're going to add to the congestion. Austin Yeah, Yes, well, and there's so many questions here one. How long is tunneling Take talk about having less mobility on the streets when they're digging them up to build a tunnel. How long does that take? The tunnel is only expected to be a mile and 1/2 long and two. When you tell me you want to $1,000,000,000 But you can't tell me where exactly, you're going to dig or where this is going.
