The Bureaucracy at FOX, in the Government Flames Leftist Morons

"We were talking about Fox News a couple of days ago. Fox News, when you look at the prime time lineup, you got the host and everybody's a conservative, right? But then behind the scenes, you've got all of these lower level employees who are radical leftist who are sabotaging the efforts of Fox News channel. The same thing happened during the Trump administration. You've got the leadership coming in The White House as rock solid conservative, but you've got all the underlings the bureaucracy, those people have been around for decades, and their flaming leftist morons. And Trump, if this is to be believed, there is a plan to fix it. And if this works, this will, this will make Trump the greatest president of all time. If he's able to implement it, and this is why people like Liz Cheney and others are so horrified. Because they know what this president is capable of. They know that this president will, in fact, deliver on those promises he had already started to do. May I just throw onto the pile here, he needs to follow the advice of former education secretary Betsy devos last week, and he needs to eliminate the Department of Education.

Betsy DeVos: Dept. Of Education Should Not Exist

"So Betsy devos, the former secretary of education in the Trump administration, making some headlines she was speaking in Tampa over the weekend. And she made an announcement which should make all of us smile. She says that we need to abolish the Department of Education. Quote, I personally think the Department of Education should not exist. That's what devos said to the moms for liberty summit. And she has been a staunch supporter of private school vouchers. Well, look, I think this is all well and good. So why didn't she advocate for this while she had the platform? Why did Betsy devos not dismantle the Department of Education when she had the opportunity when she was secretary of the Department of Education? And what really bothers me about these Republicans and this was a huge complaint I had with the Trump administration as this is the most important issue. Dismantling the Department of Education and it wasn't even on the radar. It was not even on the radar. The teachers unions, all of it, needs to be dismantled. As a matter of fact, you had doctor misses First Lady Joe Biden, the woman who doesn't know how to pronounce bodega, but she's a professor. She spoke to the teachers union last week and said that the most important thing for the teachers union is to look out for the interest of the teachers, not the kids. Not the children. But the teachers. It's all politics.

"I'm sure Betsy DeVos is a nice lady. But I can't think of anything she did, which will have any lasting impact on our public schools. And I think, if nothing else it illustrates, the problem in our public school system is far bigger than the Cabinet position in Washington, D C that that presides over it. It is entrenched in And the unions. It is entrenched in our schools. Is there a choice? Is there a way to fix this colonel without leaving the public school system? No. The current Public school system cannot be repaired or reformed, and I think conservative thinking people have got to come to terms with that reality. Is a socialistic model. First of all, it fits all the Definition of socialism, which is state ownership of the means of production and services. So Not a free market system. It's not controlled by churches or family groups, and they have very little influence on it. Of course you brought up earlier. The critical race theory agenda, which is just Permeated this system now. Lot of people to whining and complaining about that threatening to run for school board that will not fix it either. It's got to be abandoned and so public few legs that has a lot of resources of helping you to do that. How to get started in home schooling. And a private Christian schooling. And also my Web page. My ministry is about 25 years old and that's exodus mandate dot org. We've got a lot of information there as well. In states like Texas, where our property taxes go. Largely the biggest bulk of them go to support the school districts pretty hard to, uh, keep paying those taxes. And still have to somehow provide for your Children to not be educated in public schools. Ryan and people just going to have to walk away in spite of what you just presented. We pay our taxes because we don't want to lose our houses. And this is really a criminal thing, too. They shouldn't be taxing us. And to pay for these schools which run against our values against our faith. It's really has become a criminal enterprise. How many people do you think would have to leave the public school system to really make an impression? Or do you think, Do you think, for example of 25% of American Public school students were pulled by their parents out of the public schools that would have any sort of impact. Yes, we don't know for sure, but it's likely or possible that we could see 25% to a third leave. Model may begin to implode and collapse. We don't know that there's a bit of uncertainty there. But right now we're action on the verge of seeing that happened. With the pandemic. Um uh, it's been about over a year. Now We're in the midst of a 100 year moment for the growth of private Christian and home education very unprecedented. We know now just to research has been done by other groups. Uh, that Up to 15 or 20% may not return in the fall or when the schools reopened, uncertain at this point We know a permanent group was about 10%. Now whole schooling has doubled. In a year permanent home schooling. We're up to about five or six million Children now. And it was about 2.5 million before Okay. Good to hear from you, sir.

"Today in our feminist. Utopia governor cuomo resigned and stops kissing young women at weddings or stops being garbage. Human being. I mean he created a toxic work environment not just for the women s but for the men that worked for him to. But we'll get to that. Yes chalet recording on national women's day last year we were on a boat celebrating international women's day with an all female crew for the first time it was amazing and i wish we were back on that boat. We were in a bubble of just being pampered and surrounded by powerful women and it was amazing until covid happened in. it wasn't so amazing and instead of being surrounded in a bubble. We were worried that we were surrounded by five. Rhys but i i was worried. They were gonna cut seattle off because trumpet actually made sounds like well we just isolate seattle. It will spread. We all know how that turned out and happy international women's day. I guess we can start out with some good vibes because today on international women's day joe biden has signed Two executive orders geared toward promoting gender issues. The first executive order establishes a gender policy council within the white house and it's Reformulating that office from the obama administration that was disbanded by trump. But this one is going recognizes. That discrimination happens to both genders. So i think that's a positive thing and we hope that that will lead to more equality not just in the united states but around the world and then the second executive orders directed at the department of education and it Reverses the controversial rule on campus sexual assault and harassment that was issued last year by betsy devos. Donald trump's education secretary. So these are two Positive advancements and we will applaud those with some good vibes and biden also signed an executive order About election rights. And so we'll get into that a little bit more than we talk at the end of the show about. Hr one We can't count on executive orders to save us. But at least women who are on college campuses or more protected now because of that executive order and i am really glad that biden chose to do it today. Yeah we're gonna go from good vibes to pet peeves. I decided Section called pet peeves because this has been highlighted in the news. And it's really annoying me. People miss naming the george floyd trial. It's not george floyd trial. It's derek chauvin trial for the killing of george floyd and we should know derek chavez name as a murderer that he is and when you miss name it and call it. George floyd it places the blame on the victim and causes more pain to the victim's family and misses the point. I think we need to hold. Derek chauvin accountable and make his name famous for being murderer. I think it's the perfect example of a micro aggression that even progressives make without thinking about it and when ted bundy headed trial. We didn't name his victims. We didn't say it was the kimberley trial. It was ted bundy trial. But in this case. I think this is one of those little deep seated things that we don't think about until someone like you pointed out like i hadn't thought about it until i read it in today's research but i hadn't even. I didn't even in all fairness i didn't know the trial was starting so i didn't even know that but we'll do hell no hell of a time finding jurors so the 'cause the videos out there like the Selection process started and then it was halted. There's some concern about whether it's going to be a second degree or a third degree murder charge. So yeah they. They were going to add the third degree murder charge to make sure he doesn't get off on a manslaughter charge. Just go to jail for three years.

Student loans in the United States

"Roughly 44 million student loan borrowers haven't had to pay anything on their student loans since March. This grace period offered as part of the coronavirus relief package will end on January 31st. That deadline was originally December 31st. But last Friday, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced that borrowers would get an extra month of reprieve. But for many That's still not enough. I'm unemployed, and so I am concerned about not being able to pay my loans. I'm 61 years old been paying student loans since my twenties. If I were having to pay my student loan right now, during the pandemic, it would be to 36 a month. I have a lot of loans that air coming up for repayment, and I'm really worried that don't have a job yet. Asselin, who has recently completed grass school and who lost my job in July. Here. I've been grateful for the paws on student loan repayments. I just don't understand how we're supposed to pay off our loans. When the situation hasn't really changed. I don't have full time work and the payments are pretty steep. My parents willing, is $1400. And what are we supposed to do? This month's installment of dollars and cents. Our monthly personal finance series. We're talking about student loan debt, joining us his Alvin Hall. He's a financial educator and author of several personal finance books. Alvin, It's great to have you back. Also with us is Cara Perez. She's a financial educator and the founder of Bravely, Ah Financial education Company, Carol. Welcome back. Thanks for having me and we're also here with Susan Dinar ski. She's a professor of public policy, education and economics at the University of Michigan. Susan Welcome. Thanks for having me. So Susan first put the problem of student loan debt into context for us. How big of a problem is this in our country? We have a lot of people in debt, and we have some people who are having trouble with that debt. Since we've got so many millions of people who owe student loans, even a small proportion of them having difficulty adds up to a lot of people in trouble. How long has this been a problem? And is it getting better or worse? It was sort of important shift that took place during the great recession in about 10 years ago, where Ah lot of people who have the past who had not borrowed began borrowing folks who are going to community college is, for example. On BOC's who would tend to drop out after just a year or so. And default rates just went through the roof on. We haven't even completely recovered from from that period. So I would say, you know, we had student debt around for a long time. It's been affecting more people and causing more defaults, especially since three session, Keira. We heard from several people at the top who are out of work and who student loan payments are starting back up. February 1st. How can someone without income pay down student loan debt? What are their options? That's a great question and one certainly without easy answers. I think the first thing that anyone who does not have any income and is looking to make actual payments needs to do is sit down and assess their savings and understanding my trying to pay this out of what I currently have tucked away in savings or investments, or am I looking To do something like, ask outside of my finances to make these payments, But I think that more importantly, the question shouldn't be If I'm unemployed. Should I be trying to make these payments? The question is, if I'm employed, where can I find employment? Because once you have money coming in, it's going to make everything in your life, including paying your student loans much easier. We got this message from Kara on Facebook on Lee federal student loan borrowers haven't had to pay during the pandemic. I lost my job and still had to pay my student loans. I told my loan provider that I lost my job. Got the payments postponed until May, But I still have to pay $150 a month for the interest. What about private loan borrowers? Any thoughts? Yeah, I think the first thing that people should do is get in touch with their lone bar are their lenders. Justus carded here to figure out if there is a lower amount that they can pay or if there is some sort of grace period that they qualify for. Really, They're stuck between a rock and a hard place, right. If there's no money coming in money cannot go out. And so it really falls on these companies to understand we're in a global pandemic that the U. S. Has not handled particularly well. Can they work with their Lindy's so album for someone who is struggling? Who is working but is also struggling to pay for food and housing. Is there any advice you can give on how to start chipping away at their debt? Yes, I must tell you Agenda this, uh, the subject sits deep in my stomach because when I graduated from school in the seventies it was doing Great recession and I was in very much the situation. I had no savings. I had a job. The job was unstable Income was low. What I did during that period of time I took Another job. I took a job working in a department store selling men's furnishings, the nice words for men's underwear, belt and socks. And I would allocate as much money as I could. From that job. A job I really didn't like. But my purpose had to be to pay something on these loans because back then you did not have that many options. The other decision that I made during that period of time, which I was told everybody about was that I looked at the program of loan forgiveness and discovered that if I Heart in a particular school and a low income neighborhood or something like that, Then some of my loan would be forgiven. So actually did that. I took a job in what was then on area where the school was in the program, and that definitely helped repay part of my loan. So I think you have to be creative because Didn't have savings. My parents couldn't help me. I did not have a safety net. I'm thinking about the latest job numbers that came out and they were much lower than expected. And so for people who are maybe struggling to find that first job right now, or You know to secure income. The idea of finding a second job might feel particularly daunting album. It was daunting then, but If you are not proactive in some way. In handling this, then you get more depressed. It becomes more overwhelming. So you can call the student the government office on student aid and try to re negotiate. But Robbins and just sit there, it's good to be proactive in some way. So at least every day you're making one step forward toward a goal.

"Edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm David Greene. President elect Joe Biden is starting to make his Cabinet picks. Given the immense challenges students face in the pandemic. His pick for education secretary is especially significant. That person will replace Betsy DeVos, one of the most polarizing members of President Trump's Cabinet. NPR's Cory Turner reports on the impact she's had Betsy DeVos never hit her feelings about the department. She ran for four years. Now. I assume most of you have never stepped foot inside the U. S Department of Education and I can report you haven't missed much school, she argued, should be controlled locally, so divorce work to undo federal oversight that she saw as overreach. She scrapped protections for transgender students, as well as guidance meant to stop discriminatory school discipline. She will be remembered for the ways that she sought to undermine our civil rights laws and make school a more difficult place to be for Children from marginalized backgrounds, this king of the liberal leaning Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights. Says these early moves are likely to be undone by a Biden administration. Unlike the work to Boston around campus, sexual assault and harassment, students who are subjected to sexual misconduct deserve deliberate. And decisive action that carries the force of law that was divorce, announcing new protections for victims and perpetrators of campus sexual assault again, Liz King, it communicated to survivors that they should not expect to be believed. But to divorce. Obama era guidance had undermined due process and her rewrite tried to make campus investigations more fair and transparent, says Rick has of the conservative leaning American Enterprise Institute. Of us went through the full rulemaking process. They dotted all the I's crossed all the teas. They came up with a title nine playbook, which strikes me is both fair minded and reasonable. Then there's the issue. She championed most school choice. Too Many traditional public schools, she argued, were failing kids and held back by government interference. Government has never made anything better or cheaper, more effective or more efficient. And nowhere is that more true than in education. But devices rhetoric didn't sit well with the folks who work in America's public schools, teachers and other educators. They found their voice in that moment because they realize that they were under threat. Becky Pringle heads the nation's largest labor union, the National Education Association, which backed President elect Biden. Pringle says Divorce became a rallying cry for teachers in 2018 at demonstrations for higher pay and better funded schools. At least 50% of the signs had Betsy DeVos his name on them, demanding her removal. Her resignation because of this polarizing effect, Some advocates of school choice worry divorce actually set back their cause. Charter schools used to have strong bipartisan support. Michael Petrilli of the conservative leaning Thomas B. Fordham Institute, says many Democrats who once fought with him for school choice Have now turned Joe Biden has come in with the most anti charter school platform since charter schools were invented, and I think that some of that has to be laid at the feet of Betsy DeVos on the pandemic Divorce, worked with Congress to freeze student loan payments and waved K 12 testing requirements. But in July, she also joined President Trump in pushing schools to reopen. While resisting calls to provide clear national guidelines on when it's safe to reopen of the experts. I spoke with both critics and supporters agreed. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been a lightning rod who brought a charge to every policy..

How are changes to sexual harassment rules working in schools

"In May, the Department of Education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations Peter Medlin with W J reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. Many advocates in school officials say will chill reporting the new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet. The new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She Wa Patel is the Director of justice for students survivors at the National Women's law center. So these rules kind of in total really just turn title nine on its head as a civil rights law says they raised. The threshold of what schools can choose to ignore, and it's a departure from guidance that's been in place for wrong twenty years if a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough. So that means some substance would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment the happened off campus. Now, they'd had to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment especially as many schools move to. More virtual instruction during the pandemic faith Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no your nine. She says, if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in the zoom classroom that wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern Illinois University. Title Nine Coordinator. Sarah Gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem is that places like and I You could ignore those cases that they choose to, and she says, the Education Department isn't there to protect students either we can't count on our schools can't count on the government. So all we can count on is students and student power to really make a difference in holders schools accountable at a you students held protests last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and Garner says, they're much better equipped to handle their case load. Now, the new regulations are over two thousand pages two, thousand, thirty three to be exact and. The policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason the document is so long as so that the Department of Education headed by Betsy Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments.

There were mental health experts over nine hundred trauma specialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule. So the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward Sir Garner A, you were one of the many schools that Senate comets harshly not. Many concerns made it into the final regulations. Patel says, the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed, but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule. So they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted and they don't plan to re enroll and colleges. Could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school but tell that could include professor who retires or who resigns after abuse comes to light. Another chain that wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with Illinois.

"My mother thinks that rush limbaugh. Yoda you know what? Saying? She's always saying well, rush limbaugh says. Our rush had a great monologue. It was just on point. Oh it's he so tuned into the Culture Rush Limbaugh g listen to rush limbaugh the other day and of course I know I don't listen to rush limbaugh. I did fifteen years ago. You know I was a Ditto head actually read for you a chapter about right wing radio on the broadcast I read it out of my book couple of weeks ago. But I wanted to come back to this because I feel like it's Really been on my mind and it's hugely relevant in today's culture. We've got a whole group this graphic of these pulpit pounding Bible Banging, rush, limbaugh right, Wing Radio Listening Evangelical 's right the Christian Nationalists and they're screaming the name of God is they use their religion just to be Shitty to other people. May I've noticed that about a lot of these guys limbaugh Michael Savage, etc. they're just nasty people. They are always being cruel to other people there pushing buttons because they can. They're stoking the fires of outrage and they sit back and bask in the ratings and the advertising dollars and. All the way to the bank. There's this I think it's a myth that rush limbaugh is himself a Christian. I. Know He likes to speak the language of Christianity. I'm not convinced the Guy Cares at all about the Bible or religion of any kind and back I'd love to sit them down and give him like a sixty second Bible quiz just to see how much he really in fact I'd like to sit most the evangelical 's in power. Donald. Trump I'd like to give him a Bible quiz. Let's just sit down and let me quiz you for a couple minutes. Betsy Devos loved to talk to her Ben Carson Rick, Perry all these people in government are banging their. Bibles I would love to sit them down and asked him basic questions about their faith. But that's a whole other conversation. Today's conversation is with the director and producer of a film called the brainwashing of my dad, an ambassador father who SORTA got sucked in to this rush limbaugh right-wing Radio Christian, nation, kind of narrative focusing at the very least and narrative that sort of others, non-christians, sort of sets them off in their own little box while the moral righteous people are sitting over here. Now, the film itself is not new. It's been out for a few years but I referenced it in my book and I just it's been on my mind because. There is so much of this going on and right-wing radio. I don't think it's ever been more popular. There's video of this conversation. I am going to play some clips from the documentary during the broadcast. These clips add a few extra layers. So you can kind of hear the angle that she's taking Gen Sankoh Director of the documentary film, The brainwashing of my dad. So glad you're here. Hi Seth, it's nice to be here. Give me like a resume real fast the types of work that you've done before the brainwashing my dad. Sure. Will I started out as an artist and a painter? But then I felt like I wanted to reach a wider audience and I just started making films but they were always sociopolitical. The Sue. The first one was roadmap warrior women about really independent women that I met out west and then the second was was. co-director with fury derosa the vanishing city. About the lecture vacation of New York City. But also how it's happening throughout the world and cities coming less affordable and right now I'm writing a book. Also called the brainwashing of my dad. Got Picked up by source books so I can always tell you more. Fun, I mean. Let's go back to your dad. You didn't grow walk in this sort of right wing I mean I know limbaugh started back in the eighties but I mean, you didn't come from that sort of hardcore conservatism. nope. Not at all my parents were what I guess. I would describe as very liberal, very open minded. They were Kennedy Democrats and they were also like FDR Democrats they came from the depression. So FDR them was a hero who pull them out of the depression they most remembered hoover and felt like he didn't do anything but they were really enthusiastic about. And I think they were quite devastated. When he was assassinated. But yeah, they were they were I would actually list describe them as hippies before hippies same. We're very open minded My Dad especially loved talking all different kinds of people very non judgmental. As you probably saw the film, you know one time in this is in the sixties. We came out and port. Authority. We're visiting New York. For the day and there was a a black homeless man and she US Monday for some money my dad called him Sir had a conversation with them. And gave them like a couple of coins or two, but you know so they kind of thing made an impression on me that. You know accept all people and jobs. You know he wasn't for they were judgmental national change later.

Former Republican Governor of Michigan Endorses Biden for President

"Endorsed Joe Biden for president. He said President Donald Trump was not covering in the interest of the entire nation. I was at the nation's Capitol when Trump gave his inaugural address. I had hoped this first speech as president would be a message to unify divided nation. Instead, I heard a speech directed at how It would help the people who supported him. And sadly, that is how President Trump continues to govern. That's what he wrote in the USA today and then the free press governor. Snyder also criticized the president's 2017 tax cut and said Trump's foreign policy had produced some good agreements, but overall, our nation is no longer respected as a leader on world affairs. Jonas is Dick. Hey, Verner, Dick Wei talked a little bit about this yesterday. You weren't terribly surprised by this, But we're gonna have former governor Rick Snyder on in a little bit. And there are a few things I'm curious about. And one of those is and I wanted to get your take on. This is If the Republican governor doesn't like trump, and clearly he doesn't. Why not suggest ah, not endorse anybody? Or maybe endorsed some other great Republican as a write in candidate just to show your displeasure with the president. Why go so far as to Endorse a Democrat to endorse Joe Biden. Is there something about Joe Biden? He likes so much that's going to make him a great president. If he's just making a statement that Donald Trump is not not his guy. Why not endorse whoever his favorite Republican is as a writer? That's good question. That's a very good question. Because the governor Snyder says he is still East still considers himself Are Republicans. So why vote and why come out for a Biden, for example, his good friend John Kasich ran for president. Then he dropped out. Why not write in John Kasich as Hey, has the person he votes for? So that's a good question. Another good question would be what Policies of Trump. Does he support He can't be against everything that Trump has done has got to be something there that he likes because they're both Republicans. And he, after all, is the governor who several years ago. Boosted supported ram through and sign the lot. The right to work law in Michigan, making It's a ah ah, situation where we're workers that Aaron, a union covered by a union contract can drop out of the union and still be covered. By the terms of the contract, something that unions viral it Lee against. He was the right toe work Governor. So that was a very conservative move on his part, something that would be ah. Aligned with what the Trump administration is done on so many issues, So yeah. Ah, you raise a very good point, And I think I think that there's just something much bigger than this. I think I was reading a little bit of cut the Lincoln Project Republicans against Trump, but they are I think they're going to be coming out. Today, with maybe hundreds of businesspeople, politicians, people who say they've been Republicans for a long time coming out and say, both for Joe Biden. And that's just interesting to me. Why they don't voice their displeasure against Donald Trump More than vote for Joe Biden does. If you're a true Republican, wouldn't you think? Four years of of the Democratic president would do more harm than four years of president. Republican president that you just think is a jerk. Basically. Yeah, well, I'm I'm sure that you will have the freedom to ask that question of the governor also if the governor comes out again Against President Trump. And for Biden, one of the high profile members of the Trump administration is Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos, who would have been a Big Snyder supporter Back in the day one. Snyder was governor. This would seem to Ah cut off the good relations that he would have with Betsy DeVos, Dick DeVos and the DeVos. Organization and forces in Michigan. What what does he Snyder Ah. Think about that is he Is he through with the divorce is or can he maintain some sort of a friendly relations with them, even though he comes out against Trump If it comes out against Trump, he comes out against Betsy DeVos. Right and I also wonder does does this make Republicans think twice about voting for Donald Trump? Or does this make Republicans think less of Rick Snyder? Well, I'm not the judge of that you had you had posed the question Previously. Does this persuade Republican voters? I'm not sure that people look Any more at the endorsements of anyone. In fact, sometimes I think when we hear about a political figure endorsing somebody else for office It's quite a Ah, it's quite a bodacious action on their part, thinking that they're so important that their endorsement is is needed. Bye bye. The voters that we just have to know who they support or who they don't. I'm not sure that Snyder, even even the endorsement of a governor. Ah, former governor is that important to voters anymore? Republicans or Democrats cave after

I'd love your help with tomorrow show Virginia Senator Mark Warner will join us to talk about the Trump campaign, the leadership scandals in his home state, and he'll take your questions as well. Senator Warner recently said there is a ton of evidence to suggest that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, and he's the top democrat on the Senate intelligence committee. So what do you want to ask? Mark Warner leave us a voicemail. Eight five five two three six one eight one. Do you have a question for Virginia? Senator Mark Warner share it with us eight five five two three six one eight one eight that's eight five five two three six one two. One two will put some of your questions to democratic Senator. Mark Warner of Regina that's tomorrow on one a well back to our discussion on Betsy DeVos and the department of education. I want to bring in democratic congressman Bobby Scott who represents Virginia's third. Grenelle district. That's the Hampton roads region of southern Virginia. Tidewater he's the current chairman of the house committee on education and labor newly named chairman in this new era of democratic control. Mr Chairman, thanks for being on one A dot it's good to be with you. It's good to have you as well. The tax credit program. We spent some time on Mr Chairman, I asked Jim blue if it was dead in the water. He didn't seem to think. So he thought that they could get from some support for this from Democrats in congress. I suppose the football goes to you. Well, we'll consider whatever they propose one of the problems says we haven't seen many details. They call it a five billion dollar program. I don't see how you can limit it to five billion if on April fifteenth people father taxes and claim fifty billion dollars worth of tax credits. I don't know how you Dimap people their tax credit. We'll we'll see how that works. But the the fact is that it's one hundred percent tax credit. So that you can install whatever your taxes are you can decide to write a check to the scholarship program and just not pay taxes. So there is a significant munition in revenue, and if you're going to spend that kind of money seems to me it's better spent in education on Pell grants or title, one or headstart or other things will actually improve education, and he mentioned that school choice as popular while the rhetoric is popular where you can go to any school, you want to public private or parochial school that you want to over the fact is at ninety five percent of the students are gonna end up in public school. And if you've taken money away from. In public schools, and they'll have a rougher situation where they are. So taking the administration's part here for a moment. Mr Chairman, they would say this does not take money away from public schools because it's private money going to private people. But your point as I take it is that tax credit has to be paid for in that money's gonna come out of school. Somehow it's money that when you have one hundred percent tax credit every dollar. That's given is a dollar less coming in in in revenue. If you're going to spend money in education, they're better ways of spending it then in a scholarship program. This totally undefined. I want to get to the bottom line. Are you are you devoted to killing this or are you still in learn more phase? Well, you know, you have to consider any proposal that's made. But I I think it's fair to say that I'm skeptical skeptical. You're now chairman of this committee that gives you oversight power over the department of education. There are a lot of areas of a lot of concern from advocates educators students, as you know, union members teachers across the board, and you are taking control of a portfolio that has been very controversial for many many years. Mr Chairman, give me a sense of your roadmap for oversight for the department of education now. Well, first of all, I think you have to point out that focusing on education and issues before the committee that focus is going to be difficult in the last two days last week. We had a we reported legislation on a school construction Bill gender discrimination Bill we had hearings on school discipline workplace safety. Ahead budget briefings in a hearing on the twenty seventeen tax cut, multiple other meetings, and all the media reported to my constituents was that Michael Cohen was testifying and congress, and that's all the media's interested in focusing on education is obviously going to be a challenge. But there are a lot of oversight issues one of which we have K through twelve where every student succeeds act was passed a couple of years ago, which gave flexibility to local and state government. But there was no flexibility on the requirement to ascertain whether or not their achievement gaps. And if so what are you doing you have to have a credible plan to eliminate them? We have concerns that the department of education was in the process of approving plans that are not nearly aggressive enough to to to comply with the spirit of that law. We have civil rights concerns with the administration, one of the first things they did in light in spite of a jail report that showed that our schools are becoming more and more racially segregated the first thing they did was to eliminate a program that helped localities integrate their schools, so that's a little complicated because the supreme court has put roadblocks in front of some voluntary school integration plants, but it can be done, but you have to do it correctly, and the and the guidance and they eliminated a program that that helped helped them do that what have your discussions with the administration? Ben like since you took over as chairman, would you describe this? This is a work together. Colegio type of relationship is there a relationship you get your phone calls answered. Can you talk to the chief of staff? How's it working? Well, we've. In the past several years fast, two years of the administration. We've asked a lot of questions. In my capacity of ranking member of the Boston. And. I believe that you know. I remember one report that said that administration officials were directed not to bother to answer questions unless they came quote from the committee from the committee means the majority, and so frankly, we didn't get a lot of answers to questions that we'd post what about now. Well, we're we've asked a lot of questions we've just begun. For the month of January was organization and monta February we've begun asking questions and. Some have been not as complete as would like we're going to follow through. We spend a little time before you sat down Mr Chairman on the issue of title, nine and enforcement of gender discrimination and sexual harassment rules at institutions that receive public money. We're waiting on the administration's final rules is Andrew mentioned over one hundred thousand comments, I know, the media's covering Michael, Colin, but people out there are extremely interested in this issue. What's your posture? Now, you're waiting on rules to come out as well. And then and then what what there there several issues in the draft role. One is changing the burden of proof from preponderance of the evidence to clear and convincing which is much more difficult burden to to to to carry you can win a civil lawsuit with preponderance of evidence and increasing the standard to clear and convincing. We'll just make it more difficult for victims to prove their their case who. It is who who you report to and who's responsible. I mean, you could have a campus where there is a widespread understanding and reputation that things are going wrong. Unless someone is in a position to have gotten a written report. There's no obligation for anybody to do anything. I think if people are aware of a problem they ought to have to act, and then I think is as was mentioned where the offence occurred. They have limited I think unnecessarily to on campus or campus events. There are a lot of students live off campus and problems occur. Right close to the campus. But not technically on the campus. And I think those ought to be part of it. So there there are a lot of little details. That have to be worked out. It's a complicated issue. And they got a hundred thousand comments, and I think as they consider the comments, hopefully, they'll improve their draft. And since you've come on the air. Mr Chairman, people are right back on this issue of tax credits. In school vouchers Gan tweets, I think Betsy DeVos doesn't understand about education that it benefits the public? Therefore, it should be owned by. The public vouchers in four profit schools fly in the face of that idea and Rachel rights. The issue of accountability and transparency I have no problem with taxes supporting education in many forms, a better educated population benefits us, all but of schools take public money in the form of vouchers or tax credits. They should be subject to the same reporting and performance standards as publicly funded local and charter schools. One of the problems with the proposal is the no details to it. What oversight there is for a school that receives money through this program is I haven't seen any details on that. So it's it's hard to respond. But the fact is that money will be diverted from the federal revenues into this program. And if you're going to spend that kind of money in order to be spent on something that we know will help the public education. So what Mr Chairman what about the overall state of not only education policy legislation in congress, but oversight you've got a Republican controlled Senate Democratic controlled house. I could be wrong. But but I don't see any Bobby Scott Ville Bill on education that President Trump would probably signed is does that mean, we're in a holding pattern at least for the next two years of of DOE policies that that you can criticise into oversight on but no significant legislation that there is. Evaluate oversight. One of the problems with of you mentioned for profit education in the higher education. A lot of the for profit schools are problematic. Many of them are closing abruptly leaving students in a lurch. The there is a program called boroughs defense. If you're an Ed school, then abruptly closes you have the right not to pay the student loan. The process for getting borrows defense has been subject to attack by this administration. They've been undermining your ability to get borrows defense. And we've asked a lot of questions that I think the questions themselves have modified the stance, and I think improved student's ability to get borrows defense, but they're still over one hundred thousand students waiting in line to get consideration there other higher power education issues that, but we'd need to make sure that just asking the question many times. Can get results. I'm todd. You're listening to one A. The power of oversight. Mister, chairman that you talk about in in the role of oversight that does seem like where we're at for the next two years. I ask it in this spirit. Have there been any substantive discussions between you and Betsy DeVos or anyone else in a position to sponsor or approve legislation and the Trump administration to suggest there may be any in the next to you in terms of oversight. We asked there's an creditor ACS. Yes, that has been problematic and we've asked questions about that. Now, they know what is that in a creditor of creditor of the for profit, basically the for profit sector. They have historically accredited schools in are problematic. And you can't get you can't participate in the student loans.

It is the weekend with joepags, and I had a pleasure. The pleasure of talking for the first time with Betsy DeVos the other day. Betsy DeVos has the education secretary of the United States of America. She's a woman that when when given the job by President Trump was attacked mercilessly by the left she tried to go to a public school. I believe in Washington DC. And and the the protesters were there to protest. I have no reason why they just felt like it because she was somehow associated with Trump. That's how dumbed the left is. And that's why that's why most people see them the radical left is far disconnected and not Representative of them in its hey, ninety two Representative of like the blue dog Democrats of the day. John F Kennedy today would be a Republican. He would not be a democrat. Because that's how far off the reservation. They are. But Betsy DeVos was attacked mercilessly. But I think she's done a very nice job. And we spoke with her with the the minds. Set of talking about school choice week. What is that? Why would anybody have a problem with that? And so on again, the the education secretary of the United States of America, Betsy DeVos, Betsy. How are you? I'm well, Joe, how are you doing just great? You know, it's been a long time that wanted to talk to you. And thank you so much for coming on in such an important week. I'm very happy to thanks for the invitation. Just so that we that we understand each other. I've got a long history in Michigan. I'm very well. I know the DeVos family, very very very much. And I love you guys.

Well, it's an honor to be here. And you've got a great presence in Michigan. It's it's really a joy to be on the program. I appreciate that. All right. Let's talk about school choice. It seems to be a no brainer to me secretary because school choice in my opinion. Actually exponentially helps those districts that are suffering because of poor maybe public schools. It helps lower income districts. It helps people who otherwise couldn't look at a charter school or couldn't help a private school. Why is there a disconnect? I it seems from those on the other side of the aisle that school choice somehow is some horrible Republican rich people conservative thing, it's not. Well, it this week is national school choice week, and it's really turning a spotlight around all of the opportunities across the country that are giving kids who aren't fitting into the school to which they're assigned a chance to find the place that works for them. And that's really what school choice is all about is really recognizing that kids. Learn differently. Every kid is different. And we can't have a one-size-fits-all system answer. The the problem of education for kids across this country. Giving parents and giving kids different options is the remedy for this. Well, it only seems to make sense in business has as we know secretary. And then I run a business you you're you're certainly from a family that runs business without competition you'd like to try very hard.

And that's really what school choice is all about is really recognizing that kids. Learn differently. Every kid is different. And we can't have a one size fits all system. Answer. The the problem of education for kids across this country. Giving parents and giving kids different options is the remedy for this. It only seems to make sense in business has as we know secretary and run a business, you you're you're certainly from a family that rose business without competition. You'll have to try very hard. I it's not it's not to suggest the teachers aren't trying very hard to the public schools are are all bad or anything. That's not true. But some of them don't don't reach muster for some kids as you just said, why not have schools compete for the dollars because at the end of the day the student, and the parents and the community they all benefit don't they? Well, and why not have different kinds of choices recognizing again that everybody is different and every indifferent. Kids. Learn differently. We've had a one size fits all system for essentially for schools across America for over a hundred years and schools have not substantively changed in that time. There have been a little niches here. And there that have, but the reality is for too many kids the schools that they are one size fits all are just simply not working for them. We need to give them other options and opportunities just frankly, like we need to give teachers different choices for schools, and and and learning venues in which they work when we say school choice that is the education secretary for the United States of America. It's Betsy DeVos, really, a pleasure to have you when we say school choice. I think some people watching and listening right now are going to be confused does that mean private schools charter schools? I start the joepags school somewhere. I mean what's included in that. What does that look like? Well, in my view, it's a it's all of the above and even many that haven't even been thought of yet. Okay. So there needs to be a lot more creativity around how we how we answer the needs of various students. We have we're well into the twenty first century pretty much every other industry in our country has been disrupted and has changed significantly in the last quarter century and yet education as an industry has been the least changed in order to be competitive in the future. We have got to meet the demands that the world is placing on us, and that frankly, our students are placing on us. We have got to make sure we're offering different kinds of options and alternatives in and venues for students to learn what they need to know to be really hazardous contributors to the future of our country is education secretary, Betsy DeVos, the Trump administration. It's really a pleasure to have you. How do you respond to people who say you're just looking at take funding away from public schools for some reason, you just don't like public schools, and and you know, how powerful is unions. Are you know, when it comes to the public school system and the support they get from less lobbyists? And so on what is your reaction to them when they say things like that? I've never gotten from you that you don't like public schools. He just sounds to me like you want there to be choices. Well, I think we should be focused on doing what's right for individual students, and if a student's school they're assigned public school is working for them terrific. That's great. Nobody's suggesting they should do anything different. But if they're if it's not working for them. Then students should have other options we need to have strong public schools. Need to have strong charter schools, strong, private schools virtual schools and any other kind of school that hasn't yet been invented. It is a school choice week. And this is secretary Betsy DeVos in the in the military. So we have remaining report. I really appreciate you. I'm wondering when it comes to private schools. The one thing that people bring up or any sort of choice schools people bring up. Oh, yeah. Well, they can they can always say no to lower income families. They can always say no to an ethnic person fill in the blank, whatever racer at this city. If we're going to have school choice in this country, and some states do have it if we're gonna have that we can't allow the individual other than public school systems or schools to say, no to individuals because of any sort of racial. Or or other background? Can we would have to accept anybody who came with the funding? No. In my over thirty years of experience of advocating for families that don't have choices. I have seen countless schools and countless small and struggling schools who want to serve the students who want to be the answer. And this is this is a straw. Man argument is put forward by those who would try to protect the status quo and prevent the kinds of choices that need to be happening across the country. Unfortunately secretary it is a straw, man. But a lot of people believe it is this the kind of thing we have to continue to do to make sure that we get out there the truth that in fact, these schools would be held to civil rights levels, the Civil Rights Act nineteen sixty four if the public school would would take the child in the the charter school or the or the private school. That's that's competing for the money would also have to take the child. How do we get that word out other than what we're doing? Can we? Well, the reality is that if federal money is involved, then federal laws have to be followed and states are states are answering. This question across the country on a regular basis and schools that have continued to seek to serve those who are not doing well in their assigned schools are ones with open arms wanting to be an answer to the needs of multiple kinds of children the way they learn differently, and and analogy that again, one size doesn't fit all I was thrilled. When you got the job late last quick question before we let you go is everything you thought, it would be an in house your energy level. You still feel good?.

"Com. Thanks for stopping by Michael malice next hour. Also, the education secretary Betsy DeVos on. Choice week. What is school choice week even mean? And it's interesting to me that we talk about this the left for some reason in this country, the Democrats this country don't want people have school choice. School choice would be a bigger help to school districts that are failing to lower income districts to hire crime district's than they would be to to districts that aren't failing in that. It's more of a middle or middle upper class area. It would help the people Democrats claim they're the champion of and Democrats are against it. Why we talked to Betsy DeVos about the next hour. Let me go to the phone lines and say Hello and welcome to line to it's going to be David in Kentucky. Hi, david. What's going on? Hey, Joe, how you they're living the dream, man. What's happening? Hey, man, I tell you what I'll tell you. What does Dylan? I want to make comments that. I wanna ask you a question what he's doing? He's actually back the Democrats in the wall negotiating 'cause way you're going to do. He's made them have to do something. Less than twenty one days. And if they don't wanna do that. Electorate declaration of merged say because if the life and death situation for our people, and he knows that that's what he's gonna do. And but I wanna know is when they go shopping together judge in advance. I listen to the headache. Nobody said nothing if they did taking better with judge. Why can't he says go ahead? No. Did this? Go ahead. Do what you gotta do. Go ask for the money. Do what? Seven fan. Go ahead. And just do why they ceiling for that this. Go ahead. Just keep going and. Because that's not the way it works is he can what they would do immediately. Because I guess what you're suggesting is make the declaration of an emergency or disaster area at start breaking ground today. Well, doesn't happen that fast that he would have to then get the money that's an emergency fund. And then dole it out and get the people to go start building it immediately upon announcing that he's doing if the Democrats will sue him, and the probably bring the lawsuit in San Francisco where they know they're gonna get a court that would be on their side and wants the injunction is in place that would happen. Probably very quickly. The president quite literally couldn't legally do it. Anyway. Okay. All right. So okay. I see going on that one other thing. I'd like to say. Daughter-in-law may write articles like that. And Kevin was the exact article out. And why and what they said about it? For their thing. I hadn't take that article that that was that you had spoken and right? The whole article put it on Twitter and say, this is what I said and put the who article there, and then people can say they can't they can't mess with it. There was actually a video interview. And it is available everywhere. But the media ignored it on purpose. And unfortunately, Twitter and Facebook in these outlets, very far left wing. So they get out too. It doesn't get out to as many people as the media gets to when they lie about it. I appreciate you out of Kentucky. Thank you. Let me say had line four. It's jackets. Bring hills Florida, Jack. What's happened about a minute? Let's go. Hello. Joe? I listen to you every week, and I'm a senior citizen. Former navy man from Florida. Thank you number of us senior citizens down here. Totally disgusted with Nancy Pelosi the way she is trying to tell her wonderful president what he can do and what he can't do. And when he can do it when he can't do. Do it. Sounded more like the president and the president. And we're sick and tired of it. What he should do? This is our opinion you should call her for a meeting in his office. One on one sitter down and say MRs Pelosi, I'm the president United States. You are not I'm going to have the state of the union message in congress whether you like it or not and whoever shows up fine. Whoever don't that's fine too. I don't give a damn Jack. I hear you. Appreciate your service. He can't do that. But I appreciate what you're saying. He doesn't have the ability to say, I'm the president.

"Is big by the way, the rest of us stations in Michigan. I know all of you. And I love all of your she's talking about the ones that are in the area of Michigan from from which the DeVos family emanates. And again hearing devices always been positive. I don't know. I don't know how it became a negative suddenly because she 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've re I reported this many times since on this very show clean slate. Let's go. Let's see what he does. 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 media remember what she was named. And she decided let me go to a 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, what he would show up they couldn't wait to play basketball with them. But when when Betsy DeVos showed up she had to go through the back door and protesters you're still blocking a lot of hate. What exactly where they blocking her from doing? She couldn't go speak to students. He'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? If you've got a problem with the policy that Donald Trump puts across ROY something that he tweets her 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. Idiots. There's a picture that James woods, very tight. James jimmy. And I very very close follow. But also follow me on Twitter. Does he follow? You know, could you could you send him a private direct message on Twitter? I cannot compared to your relationship with a we're pretty tight, right? All right. I guess compared to my religion. Okay. I'm sure so Jimmy sends out this picture people who know him call him Jimmy woods. Actually what we're just hanging out by the campfire. We call him Jimmy in the woods. Just we now. Jimmy woods by the campfire. No, you haven't. Because now I've thought about it. Hello that you have not alot. So James Woodson's at a picture, and there is Indra Cuomo signing the Bill in New York with a big smile on his face. And as 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 may I know you've got a whole story 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 us 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 women'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 governor Cuomo celebrated the passing of the Bill and democrat leads 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 it done. Cuomo said in a statement directed 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 Day. 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 side when he signed the reproductive health act into law. Thank you for what you've done for women wedding told the governor lawmakers advocates at reproductive health act replaces a nineteen seventy state abortion long past three years before row legalized abortion nationwide. The new law moves the section of state law dealing with abortion from the penal code to health statutes, it also authorizes midwives and physician assistants to perform some abortions. CBS news, New York reports abortion rights, supporters pushed for years to 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 right. 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. What's to stop that doctor from saying, well, clearly the women's what life was in danger? I mean, my grandmother. Had eight children my father being one of them. And she was twenty about grandma rose who God bless your dialect 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. Grandma. What's it like? Having a baby it's the closest thing to debt. Ever have in your life. Imagine passing the biggest watermelon you ever saw. And she said passing probably said the S word. Because she just did that was that was informing the Joey what it's like to give birth to a child picture. So we just sit back and participate 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 handle it. 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 that 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 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 a 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 forget her name. 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 making that up. Right. I mean, the woman who brought this case change sides. So why would you have the prosecutor sitting in it when I saw that picture that JJ Jimmy woods posted? We sometimes call him JJ. Jimmy, this is it's a cute thing. We do around the campfire that is cute. Yeah. We enjoying some ginger ale. It looks like a picture filled with the budget. Doctor Kevorkian it's weird to me. I just I don't understand the glee. I am. So happy. Pulisic? It's fake news fake news. You you don't know if I know James woods or not. I know.

"We have to remember to that. At this moment. The secretary of education is Betsy DeVos billionaire. Also, the sister of Eric my favorite person, the founder of blackwater, but not what impact have you felt either politically as a teacher or on the ground to having Betsy DeVos running the department of education. It definitely has created a villain on the federal stage. It's very clear that she wants to privatize public schools. Her policies actually, aren't that different than Arnie Dunkin's not really trying to reframe the narrative that are public schools have a lot of really positive things going on them, and they need more funding in order to better. Meet the needs of the kids in our communities, sir. Follow up on that. I mean you in a way, and I I know exactly what nobody is talking about where you compare what was educating policy under Obama versus Trump, and this is true in many federal agencies now with Trump appointees heading them, you have this extroverted villainy exists, but the reality is not much of a shift in in policy up on some core issues largely focussed around Betsy DeVos posture on sex assault cases on religious financing of schools, but it's not that radically different policy from Obama Trump or is. Well, I mean in California, it's Democrats all the way down, right? Democrats run the state on every level and the city on every level. So like Betsy DeVos is Betsy DeVos, but like this is a policy that again that people will trace back to the previous mayor of LA, the gross. A who is very deeply connected to the charter industry. People pointed out that, you know, Cory Booker who thinks he's running for president was in New Orleans giving speech to the charter school industry, while thirty thousand teachers were on strike the question of California being the sort of figure head of the resistance, right? As everybody told me out there, the fifth largest economy in the world, the richest state in the country and yet California schools are forty third in the nation and per pupil funding. So that does bring them down to the level of places like West Virginia. Arizona, and this is California. This is again, this is run by Democrats. So like while we'd be nice to blame Betsy DeVos. And I think it is helping the shift the narrative to make sort of school privatization squarely Republican issue and make Democrats. Have to take a stand. So you saw camera Harris putting out videos in support of the strikers? And so I stand with Los Angeles teachers as they fight to have wages that are consistent with the dignity that we should be giving them not should should have to work a second job in order to figure out how to pay the bills how the DNC on the first day of the strike make an announcement that they support the teachers it's polarizing in that way. But you know, when you look at Austin buehner, who's the superintendent of the LA school district the school board there. These are people who claim to be Democrats, and you have not only Donald Trump and his administration. But specifically you have Betsy DeVos Mike Pence his wife. Karen, pens, all major advocates of redistributing tax payer money from public schools or public education to religiously affiliated the overall drive in this country to redistribute tax, payer funds from public education to four profit or relig-. Oriented schools, and it goes along with something that you've written about quite a lot, which is the privatization of absolutely everything. Right. Whether we're talking about blackwater, and the fact that Betsy DeVos is related prince's like not an accident gear. Right. These are people who fundamentally believe that the public sector should be looted and all of that money should be in private hands as much as possible. And so, you know, the charter school industry will say like, these are nonprofits, they're not for profit. We are donating money we're bringing in money. We're trying to improve things for for black and Brown children. But like the actual thing. That's happening. Here is private organizations are breaking up the school district into little teeny fiefdoms, right?.
