The percentages of risk are higher there, although there's still mixed evidence about young kids and cove it and they're certainly cases of young kids dying from Kobe s O the risk, maybe somewhat lower, but they're still very real risk. So you want to reopen schools with lots of safety procedures. I will also be expensive. We haven't yet committed. The resource is to do that work either. I know the answer this question, but my audience doesn't What were you in New York when it comes to education? A za member of politics and government? Yeah, that state Commissioner of Education in the state right reason I asked you that is to set up this question. I'm sure you had lots of conversations with parents in that role. And I imagine you have a sense right now the kind of concerns parents have, especially those who need to get back to work or want to get back to work and the idea of having their Children home from public school for Some number of weeks or possibly in another semester. Is really scary to them economically and otherwise. What would you say to them? Well, look, I think parents are struggling with this. I have two kids. My kids are 14 and 16. We're worried about in our family kids being able to go back to school at the same time, all parents want their kids to be safe. They want to be safe himself, and we're not in a position again because of how we've handled the pandemic as a country to it, and assure that safety we also are in a position to do the things in schools that are necessary around personal protective equipment. Moving ventilation systems, restructuring, transportation and meal delivery within the school day so that students are physically distant lowering class size. Students are physically this. Congress hasn't yet put aside the money that's needed in school districts to do that's I think when you look at the point, it's clear. Yes, all of us want kids back in school, but I want them back safely, and parents are worried as they should be about whether or not ever turned to school would be safe. I have heard the education secretary Betsy DeVos say, you know, Congress gave money in earlier variations of stimulus relief and It hasn't all been spent. So let's not spend any more money until it's all spent. That ignores the burial need accounts of chief state school officers, an organization of state superintendents and commissioners projects that will cost between 152 $150 billion for school to reopen safely. What's happened is there was some money in the cares act about 13.5 $1,000,000,000 for schools. Some of that has been spent. Some of it was slow to be distributed. And in many cases, folks are nervous about spending because they're looking down the barrel at potential very significant cut education if Congress doesn't do more So you really have the whole education sector paralyzed in a sense, waiting for congressional action on the resource is better.

"Still not sure what they're doing in the city of Chicago. Yeah, we're still a little confused about what the general schedule is gonna look like for the kids. Is they go back? A lot of suburban school districts have already made their decision. But the news today and this is startling is that the Los Angeles And San Diego School districts, two largest in the state of California, which right now is experiencing, you know, Ah, pretty bad wave first Wave second wave, then it doesn't really matter. Bad wave of Corona virus outbreak And just within the last few minutes The governor of California, has announced that he's closing down bars and restaurants for indoor dining. So it's really not that much of a surprise Arne Duncan that there has been this this decision by the Los Angeles and San Diego School District's not to have in person classes. Starting Texas, on the other hand, says they are absolutely going to go back and they're experiencing the same kinds of numbers in terms of trajectory of the Corona virus. And here. We're at a relatively no low number after everything that we have done. But It does appear to be taking up just a little bit here. It's unclear we don't No, We don't know if I'm going to go. You know, through this through another sign wave here, But at least at this moment, if were you Arne Duncan? I mean, you ran the secretary. You were secretary of education. But if you're right, the Chicago public School system which you might have some relationship to a swell Would you open back up at least part of the time for in student learning. Well, Janice Jackson is a 1,000,000 times smarter than me. I'm a huge fan of hers. She and her team are grappling, extraordinarily tough decisions here. I think you know time will tell, And it is changing by the weak, So I think it's too early to say what direction to go depend again on our ability as a city. To beat down this virus and reduce reduce cases and we just spread. Obviously the three options. One is that no one goes back to school to start the school year physically, which is what Sandiego in Ella have decided today and other other folks have as well. Second would be to have everyone go back. And third would be a hybrid situation where your kids are going back some of the time to a physical building but are are spending most of the joy their time Virtual learning environment, which is where New York inside Yeah, yeah, yeah, he's making a point. I'm sorry for you. And I just think you know the odds of everybody being able to go back. I think I'll go because I'll be really clear here. The goal here is not to be opened schools the goals to keep schools open and what you don't want to do is re opened everyone than have to sit back down to X later, three weeks later, that just re traumatized kids, So for me, it's not like an on off switch. It's really about slow and steady if you could see gradual improvement, and if if if things get better than more more kids can return to school. Final thing I'll say is, this is not the school's decision to make it. Isolation. Schools are not bubbles were not island. And if we as a city want to give our Children the chance to go back to the middle school, we have to continue to physical distance to wear masks to stay safe. The best thing to help kids an education schools is to reduce the number of cases in our community. Yeah, I have to say I've seen more masks this weekend over this weekend last couple of days and I have seen in this entire thing so far. It does. It does appear that that message is starting to break through if it hadn't broken through before.

Arnie Duncan That you know, kids, they they, They pass things along, and it's still were there. So many unanswered questions about Cove it, But it does seem pretty daunting. Do you think the problem is Maura on the students out of the teacher's side here? Well, I think it's US two community, So it's yes, it's Children. Yes, his teacher's its principles. It's custodians. It's lunchtime attendances, bus drivers, and, of course, it's the parents of Children and the grand parents. So maybe raising them a bit in the same hole. So we live in same housing. This is not where You know which one versus the other. This school's represents our society. They represent all of us. You can't divorce divorce us from what happened in school, So we all have to be in this. Together.

"You guys to check out that episode on the Charlie Kirk show. She's one of the few courageous governors we have left in our country. But out of 384 metro areas. Detroit was ranked 345th most free at a 384 metro areas. Public sector. Teacher, unions and public sector unions run Detroit into the ground. Detroit subsidizes, meaning they pay pensioners. So much so many people receive pensions in Detroit. It's twice the amount of people that are actually employed by the city again. Let's just do a recap. The last time a Republican Rand Detroit was in 1962 It's not a funding issue for the Detroit public schools. They spend over $15,500 a year per pupil per student $15,500 per year. Which is almost double the national average $15,500 per year. I'm sorry. It's about 50% more than the national average. That is, according to the Wall Street Journal. It's so bad. In fact, the schools in Detroit were so bad despite Democrats doing nothing but running these cities for nearly 50 or 60 years to actually coming up on 60 years now. I'll be the 60th anniversary in 2022 since Republicans been mayor of Detroit. Even Secretary of education under Barack Obama. Arne Duncan categorized the Detroit public schools as a national disgrace in 2009. From 2009 to 2013 at won the award of America's most dangerous city. I think Chicago can conveniently take the mantle for that now. An independent study was done. By a man named Robert Bob, who is the Washington D. C. Board of Education. When they were trying to prevent bankruptcy. And they found that to over 257 Ghost employees were illegally receiving checks from the Detroit public schools. So people said, We don't fund these schools and Apple. First of all, it's well above the national average in a lot of these Democrats Union cities well above the national average. And the money or even appropriating. He's not even going towards educating kids. Ah, lot of it is going towards Funding Ghost employees. Two months after that. Seven additional public officials in the Detroit area were charged with felonies for operating an embezzlement scheme that siphon tens of thousands of dollars out of the school system. According judicial Watch. Just watch that does a great job. Was also discovered that 500 people who had been illegally enrolled as a healthcare plan, dependence were costing school district millions of dollars per year. So what do they do? They raise taxes. More people leave the city and then they don't do anything when people riot, loot and commit arson. Why Republicans are not repeating these numbers every single day and President Trump is I've got to give him credit President Trump has been focusing in on how this is the shame of the cities, but it should be a daily. Hourly drumbeat. How about the schools? What do you get? For $15,500 a year per pupil, 50% more than the national average. Well, the percentage of students in the Detroit public schools You are proficient in math, 15.7% of third graders, 18.8% of fourth graders, 17% of fifth graders and 13.6% is ex traitors. I agreed already. Duncan, this is a national disaster. The percentage of students whose scores indicated proficiency in reading. 42% of third graders 40% of fourth graders. My goodness on ly, fewer than 10% of 58th graders are proficient science. In 1927 back when Republicans used to run Detroit The new Republic, which is a left wing Marxist rag now Called the Detroit school system one of the finest in the world. Now it is probably The worst in the country. 1967 The last time there was a Republican that ran Detroit. And now that they have governor Gretchen Whitmer Not going to get better very soon. It's the national radio program. I want to go through city by city. I want to hold the Democrats countable for the damage that they have done to our cities. This is Charlie Kirk from turning point, Yusa..

"About it then I didn't interview with someone at the Nation magazine during the convention and said she's GonNa lose and they made fun of me which led to a very long interview after the election where they made up for me for making fun of me saying she's seventeen points and lead. I'm like I'm a union organizer and I can read people and she's GonNa lose the Goddamn election unless I'm really different happens so at the end of the book. I say this the new book I say what I lived through in two thousand sixteen in the key demographic that the Democratic Party corporate elite believed was their strategy and it wasn't a strategy and it didn't work obviously and if we let Biden become the candidate I am deadly fearful that we were having a repeat of two thousand sixteen because people are not going to be motivated for this guy. It's not that they're not they're not going to go out and vote for trump. That was bullshit anyway. A lot of workers didn't do that. They stayed home. That's what happened in two thousand sixteen. Didn't go out and pull the lever for him. I say stop the working class. You blame your own damn selves. Where the rich people on and the white middle class and all that you put the man in not the working class. They just set home some of them because it was such a depressing concept to elect a candidate implicated in globalization and closing down their factories in moving jobs offshore and in the case of Biden where we have the most beautiful energy in the country right now on. The trading movement has been allowed the education strikes right that I've been working with teachers unions and a lot of the big education strikes who whose finger we've who's fingered who is literally partly to blame for the destruction and public education from two thousand eight to two thousand sixteen and who was complicit in helping destroy teachers unions Joe Biden. So now you've got because he was part of the Obama Biden eight-year term where they had. Arne Duncan as their education secretary. Who set out to advance charter schools privatization and a super serious near live. Let's break that word down for minute right but like a neo liberal agenda being they waged a war. The Obama and Biden team. They just did. I know people don't talk about this but you've got to be honest about what they did. And Arne Duncan was the architect in in most shortcuts so I go deep into WHO? Arne Duncan was in the years leading up to what led to the takeover of the Chicago. Teachers Union. Good teachers who finally won took over in two thousand ten fighting. Arne Duncan then gets elected again gets pulled into DC to become education secretary right. Here's like enemy number one of every teacher in this country and that's who Joe Biden is associated with that he was vice president under the administration of Arne Duncan so the teachers unions are on fire. Right now I mean the the locals right. That's why the Los Angeles teachers come out and endorsed Bernie last November. The Oakland teachers just endorsed him the Richmond. Teachers I mean teachers unions at the local level are on fire like hell. No we're not gonNA take the guy who was responsible for having Arne Duncan in the White House because Arne Duncan literally promoted the privatization and the and the end of brick and mortar schools and and facilitated a war on teachers unions and blamed teachers unions. Not THE COKE BROTHERS NOT AUSTERITY. Not Rich people taking their taxes out of public schools like all the things that the Democratic Party is complicit in in terms of tearing down the Public Education System and tearing down the last largest segment of unionize people in this country. Which is America's teachers? That's a single largest segment of organized. Workers in this country are the two teachers unions in this country. That's literally the largest number of unionized people. Who's the number one contributor the Bernie Sanders Campaign? Do you know no teachers so right. Yes no teachers just makes it look at you look at the contributions if you analyze the contributions this grassroots swell of support number one donor campaign eighteen dollars. The number the biggest single source of individuals are teachers all across America Supporting Sanders. So look at the energy. Look at the sunrise. Kids look at where all the energy isn't this campaign it's around Bernie Sanders. You put up a Biden and the air is coming out of that bubble. People are just going to be like. There's no movement there I also was in the UK. In June of Sixteen Sixteen. Have we both knew so? We saw brexit frightening. That's right and we saw how they were pulling it off and I came back and during the convention I was on Bill. Maher and I said you know. I hate to say this. But trump's GonNa win and he's going to win and I named the states. I said he's GonNa Win Michigan Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and oil and I got booed appeal. Did Not want to hear this but look I've lived my life making these films known things I do I under. I don't care you know Pe- later I know five years ten years. Now get someone to talk to you on the street and say. I wish I'd listened in fine but also it makes it so hard in the moment where you're trying to explain to people how this is going to go down and how much we risk risk having four more years of trying with with Biden. We can't what we can't risk it right now. I'm in the violent change as I as I see the future. No matter what happens we have a supreme court. That's on lockdown conservative and getting worse we got federal judiciary. That's getting worse. I think that people in this country don't I mean now? They see that Roe v. Wade be overturned. Probably I mean semi or good job but still like this isn't an ideological court and our our side is in the minority. And they're going to start overturn every damn thing. I think that the next place they're gonNA go with. Trading and by the way is overturning. Collective bargaining. They're really going to do Wisconsin on the whole country. Yeah they have that you can see the argument in Janice if you listened which I did read the transcript of the of the February eighteen hearing on Janice. It was very clear to those of us who are trying to pay attention the power structure and do some power structure analysis. Those folks are going to overturn collective bargaining. So there's really serious stuff coming from Supreme Court not just a woman's right to choose far worse stuff as I'm as bad as you can get. It's coming so that's just real. So if you go back to nineteen thirty two and the moment we were in in thirty two in terms of income inequality rising populist right around the world like we are in the. Early Nineteen Thirties so roosevelt. I one exactly so. Roosevelt wins and I say in the history chapter on the new book just walk people back through history and I say you know I mean with. I have enormous respect for the sit down strikes and thirty six but part of what I outlined in the book is the strikes mattered. Actually even more with the strikes and thirty three and thirty four goals they led to the passage of the national relations. Act SO I would walk people through history and I say if you're trade unionist like a young woman. I commend to the movement. My history of strikes they'd be it'd be slipping reporter. Something's eighteen hundreds nights labor. But that you you really go to the autoworkers Flint Detroit and thirty six and the sit down strikes by the way we should know that history. That's I'm at Trading Eunice and when I started digging into the history a little bit more I thought son of a bitch it was not like FDR one and he in Frances Perkins like. Hey why don't we just workers all these rights? We struck the crap out of me. Meaning the trade union movement and workers went on militant and massive strikes in thirty three and thirty four and they were bloody and intense and they created the pressure to force. The change got US fair. Labor Standards Act Social Security the National Relations Act and a hell of a long list of things at bed labor. That's right eight hour day strikes strikes. That's right and let me be legal and failed yes failing and never talk about the things that fail but I always talk about one in the bag from nineteen thirty two to nineteen thirty. Four the How these they tried it then. The sit down strikes a winner and flame. We're crushed crushed and people thought though that's it that's the end of that But but there are so many historical.

I love living up here. Obviously lives up north. This is Ray X. Not not to be confused with my pal rakes, Dearborn Ston. I love living up here, but the LGBTQ dash ABC XYZ a worming their way in all facets of our local governments. I guess the homosexual mafia. We have a game, air and newly-elected hardcore feminist lesbian on the county board and one on the city council. Most of all, the non-governmental groups, designed to promote traverse city function is elected officials are heavily staffed influenced by LGBT, mafia homosexual mafias. I caught you better. Have a rainbow flag hanging on somewhere on your business. I. Our else, I guess, we're becoming a city not of laws, but a bureaucratic bullies for whom we have to petition and beg for permission to do more and more everyday things we used to take for granted. That's it right there. No. All you gave people listening to me right now. We don't give a damn about whether you're gay or not. We don't care about you. We don't care about anybody else either. I mean, we care, I mean, if we see you drown and we'll pull you out of the water. Well me personally, if a dog's drowning, Nick saving I with your gear not to step on you to get to the dog be patient, AGA backfire. But I we don't care. Don't get him. But what happens a lot of times we see some of this, with our turning gentlemen, general, in Michigan. Nestle she's got a new figured title, but we all show on it while back, hate hate speech board or something, or somebody decides who saying things that are hateful or not. It's, it's disgusting. It's disgusting. We can say whatever we want to say, but anyway, I'm going with this Arne Duncan did a lot of Arne Duncan was secretary of education under Hussein Obama Arne Duncan started the gay school system gay high schools in Chicago. It was an in your face. Insecure go at the time he was not even close to being secretary of education wasn't close doing anything of them being this. The homosexual mafia moved to put a gay school. Only gay students can go is that discriminatory. Or what now this is all under the guise of well, gay people get picked on. I got news for you. Everybody gets picked on anybody. That's different gets picked up that will never ever, be anything other than the norm. That's not that you want to encourage that, you know, pick on people you learn as you grow older that you're not supposed to do that. You'll become civilized get your ass kicked, if you don't. But the bottom line is, is that no homosexual bureaucrat legislation ordinance is going to change anything except they're going to have their, their away with us in terms of overarching bullies. That's what this is all about happening in the school system right now. They little kids, deciding that they're, they're homosexual in the third grade in kindergarten. It's insane. And they are allowing it to continue, but this comment about the homosexual mafia. Well, he calls it, what the the team of you. Yeah. Same thing. Same thing. It's an agenda. It's an agenda that everybody's afraid to push back on. Everybody's afraid to comment. Oh, you're you'll be. You're home fallback. You I'm talking to you. You're, you're phobic. Don't be afraid to be called a name by some psychotic that you need to stand against okay damage the city council. I don't care if it's attorney general's office on care what it is. Don't be afraid to speak the truth. The truth is that the progressives are ruining every city they put their their their studies where to get us their hands on every city. They ruined their destroy it. In fact, the part of the, the piece, I talked about the gut deleted off of Facebook on my page, which I just put back up selling. It's there. It's all about city, squalor poverty drug addiction mental illness running rampant in the streets and running rampant Britain next to her civilized, people live. What do you mean by that day? But why people talking about civilized, people, white or otherwise gay, or otherwise dumb ass? But that's exactly where we go with this now. And everything goes no part of this whole thing around the tolerance, which is not tolerant at all and inclusion, which ninety nine percent of the time. It's just a BS term to get somebody able to do some Ford or heavy heavy-handed fascist act, because with tolerate it because there some. What they're one of the other. They're, they're different color. It's crazy, though. We've allowed this to happen. But the whole thing around these cities right now. This is this is going to kill us at some point. And at some point we will strike back. We're not going to be killed. We will not be killed, but there's about that. How, how do you tolerate a city that enables typhus to come into your house? How do you tolerate that I made a certain point you strike back and a certain point you probably strike back violently because you have no other recourse.

Money, but I haven't heard I haven't heard much about Amar since then I've heard I, you know, this is also the thing is I think during the election are echoed like are are kind of echo chambers. We I've heard a lot about her probably because of you know, sort of. A lot of the people that I talked to a lot of teachers and a lot of you know, kind of progressive women voters and. People that are I think are really in her in younger voters, you know, a lot of younger voters. I think like her a lot. Yeah.

Oh, my God the elections coming up, and I still don't know who I'm gonna vote for. I've also heard I feel conflicted about even the choices that I kind of like. And then the third thing is do I vote strategically or do I vote ideologically? So. I don't know. I'm getting very philosophical here. But I'm thinking of how narratives of who is a front runner, and who is you know, kind of like a viable candidate. How that happens and some people have said, you know, there's I've heard a lot of people saying that they like Amar for example, but she doesn't have. Any experience running a big municipal executive like Chicago. You know, she hasn't run a big company or you know, been the head of. Police force or a school district or anything like that. And they think well, you know, maybe she doesn't have the experience. Well, people are asking that of her other people running who also don't have that experience. Are they who we ask these questions of in? This comes up a lot, especially when it comes to women, you know, experiencing likability are often gendered in political races. But a lot of people in the past two weeks have really been talking about Bill Daley as the front runner, even though he wasn't talked about all the whole while he was in the race for the whole time.

It was born out of that tragedy March for our lives. And as it grew nationwide began to partner with other anti-violence groups like the peace warriors from the city of Chicago. Their executive director is a nineteen year old named the Angelo mcdade. And he spoke at last year's March for our lives rally in Washington DC. We are survivors of the. Fire nation. Mission. Freedom Justice, equality and parkers. He's not a pair de ngelo was brought to activism after he and a family member were shot a guy who was just walking by as they were sitting on their front porch. When I reached him by phone in Chicago. I asked de ngelo how he wound up working with the students from Portland Florida two days after the shooting happened. Former secretary of education Arne Duncan called us any says, hey, how would you guys like to go to parkland Parker, where Parker Florida? I said I've never heard of. He says my apologies Fort Lauderdale. He says there is a work that needs to be done with the Margie stone Douglas students seventeen individuals who were shot in my media response was less. Go. You and the parkland students come from very different places and very different experiences. Can you talk a little bit about that? Most definitely in the city of Chicago gun violence happens every single day. Communist your doorbell ringing in parkland there one school shooting compared to the everyday shootings in Chicago, brought worldwide international attention while in Chicago, we've been begging for support we've been begging for him and seeing how the tension with straight to parkland Archie, just one shooting one. It was not a form of jealousy. But it was a form of why couldn't this happen to Mark community. Did you talk to the students in Florida about that feeling? We did we talked about it. And we've come to the sting of a life losses. A life loss the value of park. Lars versus Chicago lives are no more. No less. The students in Florida have have become such strong advocates for gun control measures since the massacre. They went through. What what do you think of of policy and gun control as a way to prevent gun? Violence are believed it plays a vital role now ever just institutionalizing gun. Regulation in itself will not stop Dunbar was within the city of Chicago due to the impacts of school to prison pipeline is due to the impact of law enforcement rates or we noticed the increase in those areas will notice a decrease in the amount of gun biosecurity. No, don't get me wrong. I'm an advocate, right, alone, Sarma March or life partners. But we have a lot more work to do than just gun regulation. Do you worry that a focus on gun regulation? Could that have a negative effect? In terms of ignoring some of the other deeper problems that affect communities like yours. Honesty, I believe so the detrimental aspect is. We're going to institutionalize more power sees that criminalized African American men or advocating American people in general who want Kerry and the city of Chicago, and when we implement gun regulation. How are we going to conform that one policy to the different demographics as well? As different communities were institutionalizing at end. Then what is your message to to your partners and your fellow fellow young people in in Florida's? They've been pushing for these policies message has always been the same in. It is we will win the people will win. But we have to understand the communities we're working with and we're serving before we tried to make policies for them. So is this aaniversary takes place. I mean, there's going to be a lot of focus on Florida again. Tell me what you're reflecting on as as the Senate nursery happens. Anniversary happens. I'm reflecting on three things.

I don't know how it'd be negative suddenly because became the education secretary and Kerry I've often wondered. Why not let her be good or bad? I mean, that's an idea right on January twentieth. Two thousand nine I wasn't looking to how I could criticize Obama. I actually said, and I I reported this many times since on this very show clean slate. Let's go. Let's see what he does. And and as he did what he did. I disagreed with ninety eight percent of what he did. I thought he was a very bad president, policy wise. But when he got it, right? I said he got it. Right. But a media remember like he was named. And she decided let me go to school and go make announcement. And here's the education secretary. Whereas Arne Duncan who is a radical leftist socialist idiot who promoted and push the promise program, which actually led to the murders at MSG high school in parkland, Florida when he would show up they couldn't wait to play basketball with them. But when when Betsy DeVos showed up she had a good trying to go through the back door and protesters you're still blocking her a lot hate. What exactly where the blocking her from doing? She couldn't go speak to students. She's the education secretary for God's sakes. It does it just doesn't make sense the the immediate and free. Planned hate is. What makes me crazy, look if you've got a problem with the policy, the Donald Trump puts across ROY something that he tweets or says, that's appropriate. That makes sense. If you've got a problem with the fact that he exists that he's not Hillary Clinton that doesn't make sense. And makes you look like an idiot about idiots. There's a picture that James woods, very tight James Jimmy, and I very very close. But also follow me on Twitter. No know, could you could you said he a private direct message Twitter. I cannot compared to your relationship with a we're pretty tight, right? All right. I guess compared to my release was asking, okay. Breath. I'm sure so Jimmy sends out this picture people who know him calling Jimmy woods. Actually what we're just hanging out by the campfire. We call him Jimmy in the woods. Just now. You've never Jimmy would by the campfire. No. You haven't either. Now, I've thought about it. Hello that you have not Hello. So James look at a picture, and there is Andrew Cuomo signing the Bill in New York. With a big smile on his face and is a woman sitting next to with a big smile on his on her face. And then there are other people behind them mainly women smiling as well. And carried me, I know that you've got a whole story. And then we'll give you that. If you don't mind, but this this does allow partial birth abortion, doesn't it? Yes. Okay. If you don't mind give the story from CBS, New York state has enacted strong new legal protections for abortion rights. The new law signed by governor Andrew Cuomo in Tuesday's safeguards rights laid out in Roe v. Wade and other court rulings, including a provision permitting, late term abortions. When a woman's health is endangered at the state's previous law, which have it on the books for nearly fifty years only permitted abortions after twenty four weeks of pregnancy. If a woman's life was at risk going to Cuomo celebrated the passing of the Bill and democrat led Senate and assembly on Tuesday, which happened to be the forty six th anniversary of the road decision and the face of a federal government intent on rolling back Roe v. Wade and women's reproductive rights. I promised we would enact this critical legislation within the first thirty days. Of the new session. And we got done Cuomo said in a statement interactive state landmarks like the spire of world one World Trade Center to be lit up in pink to quote shine. A bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow. We're saying here in New York women's lives matter, we're saying here in New York women's decisions matter Senate majority leader Andrea Stewart cousins said Sarah, wedding, ten the Texas attorney who successfully argued row before supreme court was that Cuomo aside when he signed a reproductive health act into law. Thank you for what you've done for women Winnington told the governor lawmakers advocates and reproductive health act replaces a nineteen seventy state abortion longer this past three years before row legalized abortion nationwide. A new law moves the section of state law dealing with version from the penal code to health statues and also authorizes midwives and physician assistants to perform some abortions. CBS news, New York reports abortion rights supporters pushed for years update the law. Democrats gained control the state Senate this year, the act became easier to pass in both chambers. Supporters said the election of President Donald Trump and the nomination. Of conservative justices helped galvanize efforts to pass this law. Wow. The reports from from New York, we're that they applauded in the chamber when he signed it. So thinking. Now, if I if I heard you, right? In New York. You could have gotten abortion up to twenty four weeks after twenty four weeks. You couldn't rank and now you can yes. Now, you're saying the mother's life has to be in danger. Right. So what's to stop somebody who believes vehemently an abortion, who's a doctor, and you shouldn't be able to be called a doctor? If you do abortions, in my opinion, but that's just me which to stop that doctor from saying well, clearly the woman's what life was in danger. I mean, my grandmother. Had h. My father being one of them. And she was it was funny about grandma rose. God bless your like, a nineteen Ninety-one something like that. But what was dynamite about her is that she just didn't care. She was five feet tall, spoke fluent, Italian and English. And was one of the most direct people you'd ever meet. And I remember being just, but a boy, but just a lad. What's it like? Having a baby is the closest thing to death. You ever have in your life. Imagine passing the biggest watermelon you ever saw. And I she said passing probably said the word. Because she just did that was that was informing Joey what it's like to give birth to a child the picture. So let me just sit back and pontificate on this for a second. Because if that literally is what it feels like. Couple of things come to mind. That's one of the reasons why God never had men have the ability to do it because we couldn't even look. The second thing that comes to mind is if I'm a doctor who loves abortion, I can make a case that any pregnancy is putting the woman's life at risk could night. I suppose you could. Yeah. I mean any pregnancy other than like a disease or like an accident? This is a medical trauma to the body. When you go through this thing. I think it's a slippery slope. I think this opens up now the ability for abortionists and people who love exterminating unborn children to just say. Oh, yeah. I know it's thirty six weeks and the child is definitely viable, but we should start to deliver the child and kill it. Which is what partial birth abortion is. And and people cheered. And what it tacky thing to have the prosecutor from Texas in the Roe v. Wade case when we know that the original plaintiff row who's now died, and he was carrying something I've forgotten, but we know that she spent the rest of her life. As one of the most pro-life advocate you'll ever find. I'm gonna make that upright. I mean, the woman who brought this case changed sides. So why would you have the prosecutor sitting it when I saw that picture that JJ Jimmy woods posted JJ Jimmy. This is it's a cute thing. We do around the campfire cute. Enjoying some ginger ale. It looks like a picture filled with a bunch of doctor Kevorkian. It's weird to me. I just I don't understand the glee. I am. So happy. Policy is fake news fake news. You you don't know if I know James woods or not. I know..
"arne duncan" Discussed on Radio Free Nashville
"Price lunch. Latinos make up roughly seventy five percents of all students while whites and African Americans account for less than ten percent of enrollment talk about the significance of all of us. Well, I think that the significance is the what Eric brought up a systematic defunding of public education over many years. I graduated from this LA unified school district in nineteen ninety and we had a nurse at our site. Every day. We had lower class sizes. So when we're talking about assistant Matic. Underfunding of public education. We're talking about a privatization model bass swept. The country and particularly here in Los Angeles. When you have two hundred and eighty seven percent unregulated charter growth where six hundred million dollars is not recouped from. To come back into our general fund, and is given to unregulated charter growth that is a problem. The district is not utilizing that. But that is the plan the plan is to dismantle our school district and really dismantle public education. And we're not going for that. So the Los Angeles Times is saying an estimated four hundred substitutes have been called in two thousand staffers from central and regional officer offices filled in for thirty one thousand teachers, nurses, librarians and counselors at ten schools. Non teaching employees are taking part in a sympathy. Strike. So describe what is happening now. And what the plans are. I know today. And now, they're call for a massive presence and rallies around Los Angeles, Sicily. Yes. And so there's a few unique things that happened. We did hear reports that fifty kids out of five hundred attended schools yesterday folks are very sympathetic. Parents have been on the line and energetic with the students have been on the line. And today. The excel A-Rated charter school is going on strike. So it's unionized charter school that's going on strike, their employer is obviously not L A USD. But they are also filling the same effects of what we are failing and the sentiment out there. If you saw the pictures yesterday, I think that says it all folks were out rain or shine to walk. These lines in front of their schools and then converge on downtown Los Angeles in a way that I have never seen before energetic. But saying we need better our students deserve more and privatization has to go. And so today, we are taking the fight right to the charter industry at the California charter school association. So I can't wait to be there to show what's happening with the privatization peace and put it on display for everyone and Eric blank. This is very interesting. This is not only about teacher pay raise since about so much more. So talk more about this association, the focal point of the protests. Today. And then put it into the context of what's happening around the country. Right. So as I mentioned before the really the stakes of what we're seeing Los Angeles have national implications. I think that really what happens here is going to determine for the foreseeable future. A lot of the dynamics around public education educators across the country are looking to see Kinloss answers, and we'll Los Angeles teachers fight back and win against the same types of forces that are trying to impose the same types of policies of austerity and privatization in their schools. And I think conversely, the billionaires are very much. Aware of what's happening, Los Angeles and consciously funding the campaigns have beaten her to lie about what teachers are doing just to have a systematic smear campaign in the press. So important stakes. This is really important stakes to what we're seeing here and there's important vested interests on both sides both for labor and for the billionaires that would like to see the dismantling of public schools. So I think that really the strike wave that began in West Virginia continues in Los Angeles intern when teachers win I think we should expect a percolation and really a ripple effect not just to red states. But now to blue states Las it could be followed by Oakland. Teachers are talking about striking in February. Denver teachers, South Carolina Virginia. So really this education movement has just started. And I don't even think that we've seen how far it will go one. Go ahead. You were formerly a teacher in the bay area. Why do you think teachers are now on the front lines of a radical working class resistance today? Right. I think the most important thing to keep in mind. There is that public education is like the last bastion of the public sector in the United States. They taken away Muslim everything else. We haven't put it into private hands. And so really what you're seeing is working people. Really concentrating run public education as the last rate that we have for all people in this country. And so at the same time big business wants to dismantle this because they know that if they can lower people's expectations that they don't deserve anything. Then it's going to be much harder to fight for other games that we need such as Medicare for all our green new deal. So really what we're seeing is is this going to be a country that uses his vast wealth to fund human needs. Or is it going to be using this wealth to fund, you know, really big billionaires? And I think it's a very hopeful moment because Los Angeles teachers are showing that it's possible to change these policies. I think a lot of times people feel that things should be different. But they don't have a sense of power and really what Los Angeles like the strikes. I've come before is giving working class people a sense that they can't change the world and showing them the means through which they can do that Arne Duncan the former secretary of education under President Obama said L A. Unified to spending half a billion dollars more each year than it brings in and is headed toward insolvency in about two years. If nothing changes it simply does not have the money to fund UT LA's demand. Sesame Meyer crews, can you respond? Sure. I can you know, Arne Duncan comes from the same path of Betsy DeVos, another privatisers who thinks they know education and intern. That's the same way our superintendent thinks because he's a privatized. No, we're not going to be headed for insolvency. If they don't act, and what do I mean by that? We conducted a E R and economic impact report several years ago. Saying what what's the damage done by unregulated charter growth? I said that before so I'll repeat it over the last ten years we have had two hundred and eighty seven percent charter unregulated charter growth, so with that comes money attached because the school board, and that's the Brody back billionaire back school board. They every school board session are approving new charters new charters co locations and such to the tune of six hundred million dollars a year. So that's money that comes out of the general fund that could find all of these things not everything, but some things can be funded through six hundred million dollars a year. Now, of course, we need to also be looking at the state. We also. Should be looking at reforming prop thirteen and that will be on the ballot in twenty twenty and it's called schools and communities. I it will put eleven billion dollars into education. That's another thing. So we have to start attacking all the places that bring in the revenue and the resources right into Los Angeles and heck, California, writ large and Cecil. Your message to the half a million students in Los Angeles unified district. My message is students. We're doing this for you. You are the future, and we cannot expect you to be the future. If we put you last. So we are doing this for you. Stay strong, stay with us beyond the lines with us, but demand what you want to see change demand that from the legislators to mandate from the politicians, but let's start right here in Los Angeles and start demanding this not only of the superintendent who has zero educational experience. But let's demand that from the school board members as well. We're gonna thank you both for being with us. Sesame Meyer, crews strike leader vice president with UT LA and Eric plunk reporter covering nationwide teacher strikes with Jacob Ben. And the guardian his new piece for the guardian will link to L as teachers can teach the working class about the power of labor strikes. This is democra-. Now when we come back today begins the confirmation hearing for William bar as attorney general, we'll speak with Vince Warren of the center for constitutional rights. Stay with us..
