Is America Heading for Civil War?

"Yeah, so the question is, are we heading towards a Civil War? Dennis has been prolific on this and prophetic because he said it earlier out loud. We're already living through. And it's just a matter of time before I think we really kind of it catches up to the what is going to happen is going to catch up with our living through, which is when I go to San Francisco, I have nothing in common with the people there. And it's mutual, by the way. Sarah Silverman who calls herself the comedian came out and she said, why are we living in the country with these unvaccinated people? I don't want to live in a country. Why don't they have their own country, and we have our own country. And exactly, and what I just heard from so many people, people just said, yeah, let's do it. And right. And so I just want you to kind of just absorb what has happened in the room here. You have a bunch of people who love this flag. That flag's not going to be around if those of you that just clapped, get what you want. I'm being serious. You just clapped for secession. And so that's a serious thing. That this room's enthusiastic about separating. We're already there, folks. This idea of like, oh, we're divided like you got one side that's demanding the severance and the other side that can't wait for it. And so and you're already seeing it through kind of the slow motion secession that's happening on Southwest Airlines or American Airlines of people that move to other states because they feel they don't represent them. And so who knows how this is going to end up? It could end up in physical confrontation. I think the regime is trying to provoke physical confrontation. I think they want us to get physical, which is why at every event on that and anyone asks me would literally someone ask me rather bluntly and suspiciously bluntly, when do we get the guns? I denounced him, and I said, that's exactly what the power grabbers want you to do. That will give them the Patriot Act two to be able to really seize control over you right now. It's that what they don't want you to do is keep on showing up to school board meetings and be patient and have self control and take back power through peaceful means. That's what they're really

Democrats Plan to Swing Back Aggressively at Republicans on Critical Race Theory Claims

"Democrat strategists say the party should hit back harder against GOP critical race theory claims. On a political level, it's a real threat one strategy is insider, but strategists say they shouldn't lose sight of economic issues at the top priority. Okay, a little bit of back and forth even in the header in the subhead. They called it a racist dog whistle and a lie. But those messages haven't helped Democrats tamp down on the uproar Republicans are fueling over critical race theory. Now a misuse catch all term for teaching on race and diversity in K through 12 schools that's firing up protests at school board meetings around the country. In Virginia, Republican governor elect Glenn young exploited the term. Interesting word choice exploited. Exploited the term pledged to ban it and classrooms on his first day as governor, and even though critical race theory in academic approach to examining racial bias, that's very nice of an academic approach to it's white racism. It's anti white racism, pure and simple. It's resegregation. It's backwards. It's the most regressive ideology that you will ever encounter. It's cultural Marxism, but under the guise of racialism of racial justice. Okay? That we're justice. It's the word that left claims. And they don't have any idea of who gets to define what justice is. It's basically their topic du jour, their morality du jour that continually moves. It's not rooted in anything eternal. It's not rooted in any type of faith. Tradition that is eternal or long-lasting that has tradition behind it. It's whatever they think justices that day, but they'll use the term, and then you are the person that they're going to contend with to get the justice that they deserve. You conservative, you Republican, you racist, parents all across the nation? So they go and say that it's just CRT is just examining our history of racial bias and is most often taught in law schools. Well, that was true. Until George Floyd and Floyd a palooza. Democrat strategists say the party should hit back harder against divisive GOP claims, while not losing sight of the priority of voters in the economy. Okay, at least they want to talk about the economy that they're running into the ground. On a political level, it's a real threat that has allowed Republicans to claw back the inroads, the Democrats have made in the suburbs over the last couple of election cycles that Jim Manley, a longtime aid former Senate minority leader Harry Reid. Democrats haven't yet pushed back on this issue enough, but the good news is the party's response is effective. They just need to make the case

Federal Investigators Launch Civil Rights Probe Into Southlake, Texas Schools

"I want to pivot here to a story that is, it's really, it's a massive story. It's out of southlake, Texas, federal investigators, this per NBC News launched civil rights probe into southlake, Texas schools. Now you will remember that south Lake became one of the hotbeds in this CRT school board battle that has been raging across the country with concerned parents. Now yesterday Charlie did an amazing job covering memo gate as we are thus dubbing it. Where it is now become clear that despite Merrick Garland's claims that there was no FBI, you know, surveilling of parents, that is indeed the case, a whistleblower has come forth. Some of our favorite representatives like Jim Jordan out of Ohio have been leading on this issue, actually, we have Jim Jordan's going to be joining the show here soon for a long form discussion here shortly. It's also got a great book out, recommend everybody checking it out. So Jim Jordan's been out front on memo gate. Now, we find out that there's something brewing. And I don't love the direction. There's two simultaneous concurrent streams that are running counter to what we all thought we learned after Virginia. After even New Jersey was too close to call an election night. After Republicans swept races all across the country. Even in Seattle. What were the messages? That we thought we learned? Well, that CRT is dumb, and that parents don't like it, and that it's a losing issue for Democrats. And that Republicans get rewarded when they fight things like CRT. When they don't take a neutral stance in the public square, but fight it with everything they've got and they say, listen, I'm going to exercise state power and not cop out on some, you know, we believe in small government, which we do, but these are not mutually exclusive things. The government as constituted in the United States of America is designed fundamentally to protect the rights of its citizens. And to predict the right to protect the rights of parents. And what conservatives too often do is they hide behind that as a excuse to do nothing

United Airlines Pilot Placed on Unpaid Leave After Being Granted Exemption From Vaccine Mandate

"I am going to be joined in this segment by captain sherry walker and captain Dave Morgan of airline employees for health freedom. They happen to be United Airlines pilots, and they are pretty good at what they do. 7 87 international 7 67, these guys are experts. They keep us safe. They make the skies friendly. They get us from point a to point B and now they are going to tell us their story about their experience with these vax mandates that have been spreading across the country. There is news today that osha has now at least temporarily sidelined this plan of vax mandates, pending circuit court, judgments that have fully put a stop to it, at least for the time being. So we're going to keep monitoring that. Dave Morgan, thank you so much for joining us, captain sherry walker. Thank you so much for joining us. Tell us a little bit about what you guys have been going through the floor is yours. I've got some tape, by the way, that we can play at some point in the segment of the CEO of United. I know you're not speaking on behalf of United here, but I do have, I think it's partner to what we're discussing. So I do want to get to that, but tell us what you've been going through. Tell us a little bit about your background. Are you guys getting paid right now? I went on unpaid leave a week ago on Friday. I'm a pilot for United Airlines. I was hired in continental airlines in 1998, so I've been here 23 and a half years. We've spent many years out in the island of Guam for Micronesia and three years ago, just before the pandemic, we moved from Guam to the great state of Arizona, and I'm on a fly 7 87 out of San Francisco. Pandemic came down the pipe and we pressed on. We are the front lines that we're willing to do whatever it took. What we are team of many, many people, and I'm just representing I'm a voice representing thousands who I wish also could have this opportunity to speak. But we work through this thing. And with a really can do cooperative spirit of let's get through this because I was also a pilot during 9 11. I remember that vividly. We worked through that. And then suddenly, on the back side of this, here comes this vaccine mandate. And those of us who pressed on and made the wheels turn airplanes fly, the people who were able to fly for point a to we were there to get them there. And all of a sudden, Scott Kirby says, we're not safe anymore. You're done. So as of last Friday, I've been placed on unpaid leave, and they've basically cut my cord. I have no insurance, no benefits. I can't retire. I have no access to anything. They have shut me down and to make it worse. I can't pass travel. I can't even jump seat on other airline jump seats. So I'm scrambling right now to see what I'm going to do with insurance. I have three boys, 12, 16 and

United Airlines Rolls Out New Plan to Diversify the Cockpit

"Segregation was wrong in the 1950s. And segregating children in the Georgia public schools, which is what's happening right now is wrong again. And it goes even further than that. Whether it's not just graduation ceremonies, it's not just dormitories, but also I'll give you another example. United Airlines has come out and they have said that they are going to be hiring pilots based primarily on based on the color of someone's skin. Now, I don't know about you. When I'm flying in an airplane, I couldn't care less about the skin color of the pilot. I care can you land the plane? And this emphasis on diversity for diversity's sake comes with a price. And when you elevate diversity over competency to try and fit some sort of esoteric political agenda, then there will be a price to pay

American Airlines Cancels More Than 1,500 Flights Since Friday Amid Staffing Issues, Weather

"American Airlines canceled over 1500 flights over the Halloween weekend blaming weather woes, wink wink and staffing issues. I always love it when these airlines blame weather for staffing problems, and then the people who live in the communities where the weather is, they will run that bad here. That reminds me of the time that Hillary fainted in Lower Manhattan remember when she popped out of her shoe and they threw her in a van and wouldn't take her to the hospital when she was running for president. Hi, I'm glad she's well. But she had a bad morning and I was in New York City just about a mile away. And the mainstream media rushed to her defense. They said, oh, it was so it was so hot. Oh, it was hot. She had heat exhaustion. It was this cool crisp, shattering morning in New York. I was there. It wasn't hot. But the mainstream media figures, you know, the beast figures well, if we lie, people aren't gonna be around. They don't know. They're not there. We'll tell them it's hot.

Since nineteen eighty-one southwest has competed directly on a handful of roots in texas and beyond with a startup carrier called news air as in lamar muse the ceo of southwest to resigned after dust up with company. Founder rollin king muses son. Mike started news air but lamar muse joined the carrier as fulltime. Ceo in late nineteen eighty-four. The company was headed into a financial tailspin after years of mismanagement and a price war on half a dozen routes with muses alma mater south west. He tried but ultimately couldn't navigate. The company to calmer skies kelleher gets word that muse air which is known around southwest as revenge air has hung up a for sale sign and kelleher wants to buy it. He invites lamar muse over to his house for breakfast to see if he can strike a deal. For god's sakes her your terrible cook. You're a hell of a lot better making cut tails you got there right. Lamar but let me ask you this. Would you rather be spending your time. Retired on your boat. Fishing for salmon off vancouver coast and seventy degree weather or being stuck here and hot as blazes dallas running muse air. Honestly i prefer the boat. Then the mar- let's talk numbers. They strike a deal. Southwest will acquire its smaller rival including its fleet of state of the art. Md eighty jets. It's valuable gates at houston's hobby airport and it's complete staff for seventy six million dollars for kelleher a lawyer with no business training its defining moment as ceo. He's made peace with an aggrieved former employees and he's executed a key transaction and the company's brief history its first acquisition. Kelleher is starting to make an even deeper impression on south west Personal one apart from his legal skills and his newfound business acumen. Kelleher is well just plain likable. So he's pressed into service to connect with the public kelleher appears in tv ads for south west as the airline expands across the country. Folks warm up to her and his homespun irresistible charm in one ad. He's facing the camera while behind him. Passengers are filling up the plane fast when he hears the flight attendants closed the doors. He turns around and starts knocking on them calling out. Hey kelleher here. The doors. don't open now. Kelleher delights in the limelight and being playful in fact a lot of the employees. Enjoy their moment in the spotlight with a hostage audience on board. Welcome aboard southwest airlines to properly fasten your seatbelts slide. The flat end into the buckle and release lift up on the buckle position you seat belt tied and low on your hips just like my grandmother wears her support bra. If you are seated in an exit row you must be able to handle the functions noted on the card and your seat back pocket in order to assist the crew in the event of an emergency. If you cannot perform these functions please advise a crew member and they will receipt you and if you simply do not give function please let the crew member though and they will receipt you to on board has kelleher at the back of the plane where he prefers to sit. He turns to his seatmate. Dnr flight attendants have been doing those kinds of shenanigans since nineteen seventy-one. It just happened one day on west spurs flight just after takeoff kelleher asks of flight attendant if he can pass out peanuts to passengers as he goes through the cabin. Some passenger starstruck ladies and gentlemen. We have an intern on board today. Who is going to help us with the flight service. Just call them herb. Because he won't answer to anything else. Kelleher walks down the aisle stopping to chat with the lubbock businessman. Now sir would you care for peanuts herve. I'd love some peanuts. But i gotta tell you. You are the ugliest flight attendant. I ever laid my eyes on a few days later when he's backing. His dallas office kelleher recounts his in-flight fund. The company's corporate secretary colleen barrett she laughs and suddenly stopped short. You know her. I've been thinking we've got something really special here with his culture of ours. We have to protect it now. Neither of them realize it at the moment. But southwest is about to do more than protect. Its freewheeling culture it's about to weaponize all those comedic flight announcements and other uniquely southwest personality quirks in.

That's about when they realized they needed some of those people come back just to handle the influx of calls that they were getting so not only are people calling more. They're asking more complicated questions that take more time to resolve. you know. In some cases people are trying to use travel credits from trips. They may have cancelled last year and need help. Using those and airlines in many cases do not have the reservation staffed to handle that you know even asking retirees like recent retirees. If they might be willing to come work of summer really. Yeah so you know. A bunch of folks took retirement last summer. And maybe thought they were done working in the airline world and now you know. Their expertise is needed but for pilots. It's not as simple as just calling someone back to work to get back in the air. They needed retraining. All airlines including american are having to undertake this massive effort to retrain pilot so they can get back in their seats and be ready to fly again They have to go through simulator training and a lot of cases and cycling. All those people through their training programs is time consuming and they're not all back yet and it's not just about retraining pilots and calling back customer service staff other airport workers around the airport ecosystem. A lot of people left or were lecco. A lot of the people making airports run smoothly tend to be lower wage workers. They don't work for companies like american airlines instead. They're contractors with other smaller companies. I'd say the biggest labor crunches that you know that we've been hearing about are not at the airlines themselves but at the airports the people who work in the restaurants and the stores that passengers shop at an at before they board a plane. They're having extremely hard. Time bringing people back for a lot of reasons in this moment where the industry is scrambling to get people into jobs. Critics have pointed out that the airlines received billions government funding to keep air travel going and should theoretically have avoided this very situation but the air travel industry is now having to contend with a labor shortage. That's happening around the country. We're seeing reports of airport vendors. Participating in job fairs and trying to attract workers and i talked to a company that provides staff a lot of different things including wheelchair pushers and. I'm not shocked that it's going slowly hiring all those people you know pushing wheelchairs around in the airport firm minimum wage. Tips is a tough job especially now that people seem to have so many options like yeah. I can understand why you wouldn't want to work in the airport if he could work somewhere else. This also means there aren't enough people doing the behind the scenes jobs the people who fill the airplanes with jet fuel or deliver meals to the planes and without enough people working these jobs the entire system slows down american told me that's for them particularly cute in dallas. There'd been hub one of the companies that supplies they're catering is having a shortage of truck drivers with a commercial driver's license. You drive around and deliver food to all the planes so that means they might have to wait a lot longer on the ground to gets the meals and the snacks and beverages that they need to have on board on top of simply finding people in additional hurdle is everyone who works in. An airport has to have security clearance. Tsa is also backed up Doing these background checks. So.

And houston these men are pretty unflappable but one oil man is shaking his head. We're losing our shirts already. Lamar we were averaging seventeen passengers per flight at twenty dollars per passenger we need thirty eight paying customers on each flight to break even.

Southwest can sell one plane to make payroll conserve. Its current schedule with just three planes if it can turn its planes at the gate meaning unload passengers and load new passengers and re fuel much faster. How fast ten minutes other airlines.

Franklin the airlines gruff forty-five-year-old vice president of operations believes it can be done. He explains his plan to win. Incredulous ground crew. Okay now our planes will pull up near the gate but foreign away that they can simply drive away without being pushed by tug instead of gate. Bridges passengers will board and deplane using stairs at both the front and the rear of the plane. Departing passengers will be lined up on the tarmac. Even before the plane arrives so soon as one group gets off another one gets on bags will be unloaded and reloaded. Even before all the arrive in passengers off the plane tires and systems will be checked while fuel is being at it and as soon as the last new passengers on board whether they're seated not hostesses. Close a cabin doors and plano tax bill. That's insane there's no way all of that can be done in ten minutes. Oh yeah well if you can't turn these planes in ten minutes. I'm going to far all of you. Then i'll go out and hire another group of guys and if they can't do it off our them to keep on fire and people until i find someone who can do it. This is the only way to save southwest.

What is it rollin. You're crazy you're airline idea is crazy. Now let's do it anyway. Kelleher sober as a judge days after that hazy meeting at the saint anthony hotel bar is finally convinced that king is right if a low cost low frills carrier can operate without interference from federal regulators in california then they can do the same in texas and if the fares are cheap enough kelleher figures. Texans would rather fly than drive long hauls between texas city. I though keller has to convince some of the state's richest men to invest in air southwest. That proves to be easier than expected. The investors agree that there's a need in the texas market for what he's proposing. They also like the idea of owning a company. That flies jet plus. Everyone really likes herb. Who's always ready with a wisecracking whiskey. Kelleher starts looking for backers by calling. John murchison co-founder of the dallas cowboys. And no pow. Hello hey john. It's herb rollin. king.

Had one hundred and fifty thousand employees now has one point three million in two thousand twelve. It was worth one hundred and twenty billion dollars. It is now worth a trillion. That's spectacular journey is chronicled in a new book by brad. Stone called amazon unbound. Jeff bezos and the invention of a global empire it takes a look at the innovation within the company would also the challenges. It faces at brad. Stone joins us now on prime day. No less good morning ice free. A recent new york times investigation found the turnover rate. Amazon warehouse workers one hundred and fifty percent per year and that this was kind of in a way encouraged out of fear of the workforce becoming stagnant. You have written about. Jeff is compulsion to keep amazon dynamic as a company. Do you think this has taken a toll on on workers. Well i mean. I draw these conclusions in in the book and i talked to a human resources executive early on who said that. Jeff bezos was making very particular decisions about raises in the warehouses and how to measure employees performance because he didn't want tenured employees who would be around for a long time and might get disgruntled. He was looking around and and looking at. Us manufacturers in the us automakers and judging that collective bargaining in an organized workforce had really limited their flexibility the company's versatility and ability to innovate and allowed them to be overtaken by foreign companies. And yeah i i do think that how could it not have an impact on the quality of life in the workforce i think more recently amazon started to realize and basis has started to realize that this hurts the company's image. It's going to hurt his legacy and it's going to really hurt the company's ability as it now gets over a million employees to keep hiring. How do you think amazon's gonna meet this. This image problem. They used to have this notion that they could just continue to innovate introducing magical new products. That would dilute some of the negative impacts of being a large distant retailer that was often seen at odds with small mom and pop companies. And sabrina as you're mentioning here. That is really no longer working. And i think what we've seen recently is amazon pivot and address at status as a large employer in all of its messaging and we'll see it in the messaging around prime day when they release their annual report on it. they're going to highlight the impact. The discount days had two small businesses. But they've got a lot of ways to go. You give a lot of really interesting. Examples of jeff bezos pushing his teams to innovate hard. He's stepping back from a lot of his responsibilities. What do you think that will mean for the company with the larger businesses retail and amazon web. Services he's really been stepping back and allowing deputies to run those divisions a. somewhat independently. But it's the new projects alexa and the satellite constellation amazon hopes to build called project kuyper and probably new things that we don't yet know about where he's been really active. He says he's going to continue to do that. But he's going to let andy jazzy. As longtime deputy be the face of the company which i think probably apt as amazon now enters in the age of enhanced antitrust scrutiny and criticism chassis simply presents. A more humbler. I think face for amazon. When bezos sitting in that congressional testimony seed. He's sitting there. Not only is the ceo of amazon but is the richest guy in the world and that's a somewhat impossible position for him. I think so. I think he's happy to let andy. Jesse take over that part of the job brad. Stone is the author of the new book amazon. Unbound jeff bezos and the invention of global. Empire thank you so much and what a great read.

"You've you've kept them right. We're we're we. We got the seven that we like. And we're gonna keep the seven we like. What will the interesting is a year from. Now when we when we talk about this in mid june of twenty twenty two. What will the number be that right then. If it if it goes down to you know i would. I would predict making predictions is the thing that we'd see a decline from seven point zero six two something like six or five by the end of by the middle of next year. Because i think there's going to be. I think we're still in the in the mode of of shaking out some of the quote unquote also rans. And i also think there's there's going to be even more consolidation. Oh no you're there's there's you're dead on. I mean listen. Look what's happening right now. A substitute right. You had every everyone start the all these journalists and writers they started the subject channels and then they realized. Oh well we're we're getting a lot of free subscriptions but we're not able to monetize and so now they're putting a consortium together so they're sort of band together. We saw that happen with with cable. You had all these individual cable channels and then they realized they couldn't make it work and then economies of scale prove that okay now you've got some buyout opportunities and then you've got groups and so now you still have the same number of cable channels but you only have like five owners. So maybe that's what happens right you. You have What was the one you were talking about. Cbs all access. I don't know if it will happen to that one. But you've got peacock and you've got eighty seven other ones and you'll see some consolidation. Maybe you'll have a net flicks by some and you'll have an amazon by some and they'll be owned by four or five companies but you'll have seventy two different over the top channels this. Yeah i think that's right. I think that's i think that's exactly right. You know and so i. I think we're just at the very beginning of this and and you know it's only likely to get you know for us. Consumers it is. There will always be sort of the the paradox of choice when it comes to all of the things that we have to watch and listen to because the other thing..

"And here's what we're going to give them introducing the new american way. Oh that'd been great. Oh yeah but now it would have been fantastic. Yeah i mean yeah silly silly silly you know. And it's it's yeah. It's just so i guess i guess we're calling for one and i think the the one to do it would be like jetblue or southwest airlines to come out and say we realize that there's an opportunity to provide a unique experience for travelers. We are coming out with this and by the way. This is not like a thing that you would need a lot of convincing on because we've talked about very recently on the show. The number of innovative companies such as lego and amazon and walmart that are reinvesting heavily in print right now yet but they're targeting the home. Well here's the thing where you could target somebody. You don't have the postage and they're right. It's right in front of you like you. You could display it multiple ways and boom there. It is just and it's not even near as difficult as sending it through the mail. So i've just would have. Yeah i mean it's it's such a it's such. It's like one of those things that really makes you go. What because it. It seems like such a no brainer thing. Because here's the other thing. The argument that we're going to replace it with video is also silly. Because if i'm if i'm a marketer if i'm an advertiser no no no no why that's a. That is a perfect point because what we're thinking so let's say that you're the chief marketing officer here and you're thinking oh wait. Everybody wants to be on their devices. And so we're going to create a video experience. I remember when that first started and they said oh we're launching. Let's say in american way. We've got the american way video series and we're gonna take these interviews and go and do these profiles and video. Whatever no you have their undivided attention. You have no competition. So you're gonna say you're gonna move it to a device where you have competition was that's right well and by the way not everybody. I see an airplane. Picks up the magazine in that twenty five to thirty minutes when you're on final approach and you're not allowed to have your laptop center throwing more right. That's so there is. Everybody opens up that magazine to see what's going on or on takeoff right right or or on tape you get and it's thirty minutes of time on every flight. That's alright people by the way independent of how long your flight is. And you know what i mean. It's like and then here's the thing on the video thing i. I don't think i've ever as i'm traversing up to the bathroom. Seen anybody watching the channel that features all the original american airline programming that has all sponsored programming..
