"I mean, I think you are absolutely 100% right on playing politics with our civil liberties is a dangerous road to go down. And you know, the fact of the matter is this is not just social media. The mark the rule the Of the justification to these kinds of laws people are putting forth have been marshaled against other forms of media and will continue to be in the future, particularly if these laws keep popping up s so we're really at a point where the risk is not just Social media platforms, personal rights. It's the first minute rights of media and our all of our First Amendment. The erosion of First Amendment rights is always incremental. It's never wholesale. It goes by bid and you chip away at it. And then one day you wake up and say, How did we get here on? I don't particularly want to see that happen. I couldn't agree more. And that's why I frequently when people talk about politics and the state of politics in America as a pendulum, I say, I think it's a little more like a ratchet. And when we lose our freedoms on rare occasion, it swings back. It never swings back all the way and we never get all our freedoms back. Ari Cohen is the first free speech counsel at Tech freedom. Their website tech freedom dot org's Thanks for doing this, Ari appreciate it will definitely do it again. Any time, Ross. Thank you. Thanks a lot. Okay, folks again, I'll just wrap this up by I'll end it where I started it just because you think something is a goal that you would like to see whether it's police reform or trying to get social media platforms to behave in a way you would like them to behave. Does not mean it's a legitimate function of government does not mean it's a constitutional function of government and we always need to be aware that every time we give away some liberty some fundamental right some constitutional right In the name of a goal that we like this time, we will have no Moral standing to push back on government the next time they go to try to satisfy some other goal that's important to somebody else, but that we consider to be an infringement on our rights. I'll be right back Summer's here and we're all venturing out more enjoying the outdoors, long holiday weekends and taking.

"Right. Good morning. It's Wednesday. I think I'm Ross. Thank you so much for being here. Thanks to Mike photographer Mike, who? Occasionally sends me a fabulous pictures when I'm talking about something on the air that is photogenic, and he sent me a couple of pictures after listening to the first hour of the show, where I had talked about the total lunar eclipse that happened around five o'clock this morning mountain time. If you're here in Colorado, looking fewer looking Southwest. It's the only one of 2021 for For Colorado. So I had mentioned that and I had also mentioned that there was great horned owl in a big dead tree near my house. And I was just wondering if if that owl had actually noticed that there was an eclipse, anyway, Mike sent me a couple of pictures that he took one being Picture of the progression of the eclipse this morning, So it's actually it looks like three photos. But in one it's really neat. And then another of a great horned owl, both wonderful pictures. And I posted them on the blogger. Iraq's Kaminski dot com If you just want to see a couple of beautiful pictures taken by One of our morning show family. So thanks to Mike for that it's all it's up it Ross Kaminski dot com If you want to go check it out. All right. Gosh, I still have so many things to talk about. Oh, I want to mention we've got a couple of real interesting guests coming up later in the show an hour from now. We have a gentleman named Donnelly Wilkes Donnelly. Wilkes is a medical doctor and former U. S Navy medical doctor left, retired from the Navy at the rank of lieutenant commander. He served with the Marines. Deploying out of Camp Pendleton, where I lived. When I was a kid, he served with the Marines at the Battle of Fallujah. And as a new book out called Code Red Volusia, a doctor's memoir at war, and We're gonna talk with him about an hour from now And then an hour after that, we're gonna have Ari Cohen, who is The free speech counsel at Tech freedom, and we're going to talk about Florida's new law that Will attempt to punish or fine big tech companies in particular social media companies for doing things like deep platform, ink or shadow banning Political candidates and other such things. So that's coming up later in the show. Actually have so many things I want to talk about. Let's do this one. This from The New York Times from last night. After meeting with President Biden and Vice President Kamila Harris on Tuesday for over an hour in a private Oval Office session. The family members of George Floyd said the president was still committed to passing a police reform bill even as he missed his own self imposed deadline of getting it signed on the one year anniversary of Mr Floyd's death. Brandon Williams is George Floyd's nephew, told reporters, he said of the deadline. He's not happy about it not being met. But all in all, he just wants the bill to be right. Now. Apparently this meeting was just the family members and the president and the VP. I would. I heard in an interview yesterday that White House staff was not in the room and the family's lawyers were not in the room. That's what was said on on TV. One of Mr Floyd's brothers. Felonies who we've probably heard interviewed on TV has pushed for more action on Capitol Hill again this from The New York Times where the legislation bearing his brother's name has languished. The bill seeks to ban the use of chokeholds imposed restrictions on deadly force. And make it easier to prosecute officers for wrongdoing. He said, And I quote if you can make federal laws to protect the bird Which is the bald eagle then you make can make federal laws to protect people of color. Now. Let's talk about this for a minute. This is something that Many politicians. And not just politicians on the left, not just Democrats. Although they are worse than Republicans. They're not alone in this error. Too many politicians make the mistake of believing or claiming to believe. That just because A goal that they come up with, or Glom onto just because the goal is a worthy one. They believe that a worthy goal automatically makes it The proper Responsibility. We're domain of government. Which is Often untrue at the level of state and local government. And almost always untrue at the level of federal government. And, uh, I know I live in a little bit of a libertarian fantasy world. And I say these things with the with the full stipulation to that. But that won't stop me from noting But the vast majority of things that our federal government does. Those things are unconstitutional. I'm not saying that they would necessarily be an unconstitutional act if done by a state government. But most of what the federal government does is not authorized by the United States. Constitution for the federal government to do and the United States Constitution is very clear. That the federal government is on Lee to do those things that it is explicitly authorized to do and that everything else is reserved to the states into the people. Almost every major government program you can think of. Outside of the United States. Military And perhaps the Border Patrol and broader enforcement of immigration policy. Patent protection. Post office. Those are A few of the very small number of things. Federal courts. That the federal government Is authorized to do So coming back to the Floyd Story, The George Floyd story and the police reform and all that. Just because it might be a good idea, and I'm not an expert on this. I'm not claiming to be, But just because it might be a good idea. For police departments not to use chokeholds or for the use of chokeholds by police departments to be banned by law. It does not mean That the federal government has any role here..

Then they don't have those advantages, and they'll end up in our prisons and jails, and he's hoping to make a little more headway in the Washington Legislature this year, but His difficulty, he says, is that people have an image of who former prisoners are.

"Found a new life a life with purpose. She is currently a senior at the University of Washington. I'm going to tell you something.

She plans to become a lawyer, and if she gets the chance, she says a prosecutor because she wants to reform the system. Explicit, bringing back toe Ari Cohen in this program. State Legislature is going to reconvene soon, and they'll be trying to figure out what to do about the urban campers, and he wants to convince them that what really helps people like Jenny is for someone to be there with the necessary help. And the necessary money at the time they're needed. He calls it meeting the legitimate frugal need at the time it arises, which was the conclusion of the U Dub study of his program's success. Means when somebody's losing their home or losing their mind. You can't wait a month or a week. You have to intervene right away. I mean, if someone needs food, you buy the food If they need rent, you pay the rent. If they have mental illness, you treat the mental illness. 40%, or more of prisoners, he says are diagnosed with mental illness and he sees it every day. Like all of us used to see it back when we were commuting mentally ill, and they're hungry, and they're hurting. And it's just in nobody's Ah, lot of people don't give a damn. Clearly don't give a damn. It's all over downtown Seattle, right, And the new thing seems to be a push for housing. I heard this morning that the city's playing to buy a bunch of hotels what you're up to sail up for sale, but everything is going to take more than that. He takes on the case. He is sometimes working one on one, and he starts by asking former prisoners what they want to be every job on Earth from culinary arch ironworker. Labor to nurse urgent is on this menu. What do you want to be? And if they say, electrical engineer then we make it happen. If they say I want to be in the trace, we make it happen. If they say culinary arts, human Services nurse. I don't care what they say. We've got three lawyers. Then when we get him on the right campus And then when problems arise, whether they're simple, like writing a check for around or groceries or bus pass or or somebody relapses. Whatever it is, I mean, I mean, literally psychotic break and spoken in the middle of the winter. We deal with it, but he told me that he encounters a lot of resistance to his approach the idea of providing anything free like an education. People who've broken the law is a tough sell, even if it turns out to be cheaper than what we're doing now. Here's the attitude he says he gets from Legislature when he explains his philosophy. Yeah, we'll try to get housing for him. We'll try to deal with mental illness, but we don't want them to have the same future that we want for our Children and people we love which is like college. And in a career we're offering college educations, whether that's vote tech community College or university, we're offering college educations of prisoners.

You law and the question I was asked is, Are there any states that do this right and our eight names two of them Nebraska, where the prison system is run by a former administrator for Washington Department of Corrections. This is what they do in Nebraska, if you have a violent crime And you have mental illness and addiction in a long history With the criminal justice system, you come out really nice transitional housing paid for by the government job paid for by the government. Of counseling. Everything you need paid for by the government instead coming out of prison here where you literally come out to nothing. You have no food, No money, No job. No housing. No Nothing in Nebraska. You come out to really nice transitional housing in a job, and it's paid for by the state. You couldn't get the Genie Dardanelles and Roger Goodman's legislate and fund a program like they have in Nebraska. There's too much legislative cars. But in these really conservative states, Ohio and even more conservative Nebraska, it's they're doing it. So he says. Ohio Nebraska, I've got it right. Other thing to remember is it is noise, a character flaw that puts people on the streets.
