Hard Hitting Truths With Kurt Schlichter
"Just start off where we're at right now. The Democrats have gotten, I think the panic is set in that November is coming. And they're doing everything they possibly can to avoid what is shaping up to be a wipe out, especially in the house, probably in the Senate. And then all of a sudden, out of the blue, and you're an attorney, I'm an attorney. You have the FBI just go pull an amazingly stupid stunt as a way to peers right now. Where are we at right now? What's going on? They're continuing their effort to frame Donald Trump for the same reason they have for 6 years. It's really a message to anyone who's not within the establishment that the incompetence losers, weirdos and mutations who make up our ruling class are not going to just give up power. They're going to try and hold on. Look, this isn't a flex from strength. This is a flex from weakness. And I'm not even sure that they expected the blowback that they got. So it took a little while for a lot of Republicans to find their spine. The first day McConnell wouldn't say anything about it. Because there were floods. And that's all he could talk about. He had to talk about the floods. Boy, McConnell. Boy, he used to be a knife fighter. Now he's really becoming a joke. I mean, if you can get your behind handed to you like he did by Chuck Schumer, which is like being tricked by your beagle, you know, you're losing a step. And then Tim Scott, who's perfectly nice guy. I like Tim Scott. I love him as a neighbor. He's got no business being a leader of the Republican Party or a candidate for president because he just does a gay. He actually goes on CBS News. And says, we need to wait and see what this is about and what they found. No, no, we don't.

Steven Moore Discusses the So-Called 'Inflation Reduction Act'
"Now is Steve Moore from the committee to unleash prosperity. Steve, this bill that the Senate passed over the weekend. It's hard to even know where to start with this. I'll just kind of give you the floor is yours. What are the big points that people need to know about this increases taxes, the green energy aspect of it increased the IRS. Let's start with the climate change part of it. Where on earth is all that money going to go to quote unquote fight climate change? Well, great to be with you, Charlie. You're right. You and I could probably talk for two hours about this is truly a dreadful Bill. 800 pages long. And I can't think of one good thing in this bill. Truly. I mean, I've read through, not the whole thing, but I've read through most of it. And it is basically just a massive increase in the size and scope of government and the invasiveness of government. And that's essentially the John Doe. I want to make one point right from the start, Charlie. If you count the $1.9 trillion Biden spent in his first months in office, remember that was the blue state bailout bill. And then that fraudulent $1.1 trillion so called infrastructure Bill, which was really the green energy bill. And then remember two or three weeks ago, they passed a massive corporate welfare Bill. That was roughly $200 billion. This one has a price tag of somewhere near. We don't know exactly somewhere 607 100 billion. That's $4 trillion. I mean, can you believe this? They're talking now, the left is talking about, oh my gosh, Joe Biden's like the next FDR. Well, if running up record amounts of debt, records amounts of red ink and deficits and record amounts of inflation, then he has been a quote productive president, but I've never seen anything like this in my 35 years. This will bankrupt our country. And let's just pray that we can stop this now. I'm not confident, but maybe there are maybe four or 5 or 6 fiscally conscientious Democrats left that might finally stay, hey, three and a half $1 trillion enough. We don't need another 700 billion.
The Tragic Saga of Alex Jones
"Jones back in many a couple of years ago. Spoke out about the sandy hook shooting. He said something quote, he said, no one died. The incident was staged. It was synthetic. It was manufactured. It was a giant hoax and completely fake with actors. He's totally wrong there. In fact, he's admitted he was wrong. Shouldn't have said it. It was not true. Somewhat despicable, quite honestly, and he shouldn't have said it. Okay, so he said that and in reaction to it, the sandy hook parents then started to allegedly to the court documents started to get harassed because of that. Series of lawsuits then were filed against Alex Jones saying that because of him their lives were totally ruined. This trial has been going on and on and on. Now remember, with Alex Jones, you're dealing with someone that specializes in bombast and bravado, shouldn't have said it. It was a mistake. He's admitted he was wrong, multiple times, but that will not satisfy the media, and that will not sought satisfy the nonstop pressure campaign against Alex Jones. So according to the judge and the Alex Jones case, anything you read in the press is hearsay and even reciting what you read as a means to convey how you made it feel is also hearsay. So let's play cut 22. How did you feel about that? Well, when I read the newspaper, there was a 20 $8 million ad buy. Don't say what you read. Just how many have you filmed? Things that you have read are also here today. Okay. Because you didn't save them. Somebody else centered right on writing is speech. Do not tell the jury anything that came from someone else that you've read or heard don't have to disregard that sentence. Go ahead. So that is the judge, her name is Maya Guerra gamble. This is the type of judge that Alex Jones was given. 23 up on stage. Hashtag stay at home. It could save lives with a blue hair bonnet on. Love is love with the transgender thing, and also don't stay at the top, vote for every Democrat. That's the type of judge Alex Jones got. Conflict of interest, you better believe it.

His infamous 2006 hunting accident where he shot a guy in the face was prominent in the minds of many, one blue checkmark said, fun fact, Dick Cheney is also a liar. He's a murderer who killed hundreds of thousands of people for oil and defense contracts F him F his wretched daughter and F Trump they can all rot in hell. Dan Caldwell tweeted Dick Cheney as VP was the chief advocate of the disastrous war in Iraq that killed up to a million people. He should have no standing to accuse anyone of being a threat to our republic. Dick Cheney looks ready to shoot Trump in the face with a mother load of birdshot. The thing I thought about when I saw the video was the hit TV series Yellowstone. It's like Yellowstone season 5. Starring Dick Cheney.

"Has there ever been. A shatter spectacle than former vice president Dick Cheney confirming what we all knew. That they hate half the country's so much.

Songwriting Legend Diane Warren Shot Down for Having a Good Question
"So Diane Lauren decides to weigh in on this whole renaissance nonsense. I'm so glad she did because she brought something up that really needs to be discussed. Diane Warren prolific songwriter has worked with Beyoncé before. The song I was here, she wrote that for Beyoncé, but because she spoke up, members of Beyoncé's beehive just, you know, they don't think she's anybody. They think she's some out of touch white lady who doesn't understand the songwriting process. No, because she's probably the best of all time, assholes. But you know, she rightfully questioned why in God's name on the 25 writers on one of Beyoncé's tracks. This is the first time that's happened. Beyoncé's known for crazy. Remember, her daughter Blue Ivy got a producer credit? And it was basically up for a Grammy at like four years old, whatever the fuck? The song they're talking about. I'm done. There's something to answer. It's called alien superstar. It's basically Beyoncé bragging about how she's the best and all you are the hose need to get out of her way, standing stuff from Beyoncé lately. Now, Beyoncé has got a super producer called the dream, he had the response back to Diane on Twitter, and he made it racial in a nanosecond. For no reason. He wrote back to Diane, you mean how does all black culture have so many writers? Well, it started because we couldn't afford certain things thought. Now, so we started sampling and it became an art form. A major part of the black culture in America had that era not happened. Who knows? You good? This tweet is filled with grammatical errors and bad spelling. Just 5th grade level of correspondence. Not that it matters. The guy's got 25, 30 million in the bank, but still. And then this little condescending prick goes further. He says, I know it's not a one on one songwriting contest. You looking far from no one over here. You don't want that smoke. And you know I love you, but come on, stop acting like your records haven't been sampled. Then of course, all white lady gets very scared of said black man and has to bow down because, you know, we can't, you can't go toe to toe with anybody that's not white. It's racist. So the end bows down. I didn't mean that as an attack or as disrespect. I didn't know this. Thank you for making me aware of it. No need to be mean. I meant under suspected Beyoncé, I work with it before. I admire her. I'm sorry for the missing the standing. Have a backbone, Diane Warren.

"You know how I told you. Oh I don't see myself as changed maker right and it makes me think that people just like me. Sometimes we think that changed makers are people that are more seen in people that are doing things on the grand scheme of things like I will think all Rivera because he's out there training this group saying that sometimes what I think more of a change maker you know or hard that is all over the world and whatnot then all those people cannot do everything. And you know why you're doing things on the air on special you have to have all the people doing the work in the community and I guess I am a change maker but then what I wanted to tell the people say you are change makers as long as you're doing something that is influencing in a positive way other people's lives as long as they're doing something to make changes in maybe not directly maybe you're changing policies. Maybe you are changing loss. That will help them.

"Blue Roads Education Group. This is part two of my reflection on how to be a homebound change maker in part one. We considered the first two quadrants of the change maker. Journey homegrown solutions in light of recommendations to stay at home as much as possible in this second installment. We're thinking about the patchwork world described in the third and fourth quadrant of the Blue Roads. Change Maker journey here. We're encouraged to think beyond our personal experiences to engage with others from a more global perspective. A really important time to recognize the beauty of our diversity. We have so many challenges in the world and it's a good time to really think about looking at our world together and through the eyes of one another. My husband told me a story about an Asian American woman who was recently heckled in bullied in a Walmart store while people stood by and watched and didn't say anything to stop what was happening. No one was acting on the women's behalf and we talked about how much we hoped that. If we were in that situation we would have the courage to at least say something like. Hey that's not cool or something to speak up. Hope that would be true. I wish that would be true. Given this opportunity to reflect on it and hear stories like that I think that gives me the the chance and the responsibility to practice in my own head about it so I can be ready if I'm in a store. See like that happened or out in the world and see something happened. That gives me the opportunity to speak up and reading. Those stories makes me think about how to be ready for that. Some of you may have read this week. About former presidential candidate Andrew Yang. Who wrote a OP? Ed in the Washington Post Encouraging Asian Americans to up their efforts with patriotism rare wear red white and blue and to to show in their actions that they are citizens of the United States and in the fight with everyone else in response to those kinds of bullying incidents that happened to the wall woman in Walmart. He was saying that he was experiencing that same kind of racism and feeling a sense of shame as his Asian heritage. And he's gotten some backlash for this because some folks perceiving that response as a soft response than an easy out for people who are acting as racist so something to consider but certainly his intention was to pull people together to say. We are all in this together. I.

"Saying okay. Let's do something. And they created this diversity form votes could come in and talk about. No parents administrators teachers. Whoever it come and let's talk about race relations in school and it did help the principal at Christopher high school. He and I became. I guess sort of allies and when there were things that were happening at that time there was a lot of racial tension a lot of fights on some of them pretty bad accurate room. He would call me and say okay. This happening over. Should I do? What do you think about well? First thing you need to do is pick up the phone and call those African American parents who are involved with this and have a conversation with them. You know so all the the noise. That's out there. Misuse or trews. You are able to talk through that men that seemed to help. Some in part of that happened because I would tell my children look it. You know if you fi- you're GONNA get kicked out too. And their and other kids. The white kids knew that and they went on the black kids so that they would fight so they would get put out because black kids were getting put out in the white kids. Burtless silly being put out So and when you have all of a sudden a buy in the cafeteria onus Parviz slowed and fight net portable. And they all happen at saying time you know. I told Superintendent. So that's a gang. I said this stuff that was being done deliberately and is being coordinated. That's a game. Do something about her And he finally understood that recognized that so things did get somewhat better but So good relationships came out of those conversations in those early days in came over to the school board and quite frankly some of those folks who had been very resistant to my concerns as a parent. Now is a different situation. I was a member of the school. Board is folks. We have to have seats table. Have to be where the conversation is happening. And we need to be in the positions to be able to help change. What's happening? Start asking God when my kids were in like the Tenth Eleventh Ray okay. So what is it? I'm supposed to do because we're supposed to leave this place better than it was when we got here. So what is it that you have to do? And that's when those doors started opening The end of Louis C. P. I mean literally on this main street and Christie's Berg after having coffee with the former president that the president was getting ready to Lee and we were trying to figure out who to fill that position and I'll never forget exact spot where I was standing on this on the sidewalk as we were going to our car to our cars and it just came out. It was like Kay and to this day. I still don't understand where that came up but it came from boxing and so bet led to with Spoo- board. I had been engaged with my labor unions at work. Some as trustee and attending meetings. And doing whatever I could. Do you know kind of behind the scenes where it's going to start with the end up placing then realizing okay. There's that's not going right here. These folks who are in these positions of leading this local which the things that they do have an impact on at that time. Hundreds of people in that building was not right. They were Kinda give us up so I said okay. I stepped up ran for office to the Executive Board and two elections didn't make it because people were complacent and said Oh did make. It didn't make it ahead to do this do that. But I'm sure you one right and like no and because just like now with our as being over show up things things can happen. Eventually I was elected president of local or administrative chief steward and then the president and always work. All just has come together. It's all the same work. The union work you know went to another level. We hired our first African American Female Superintendent and at that point I became chair of the board So things just kind of everything went to a higher level but account at the same time and I understood the real meaning of standing fast And sometimes it needs to be just understood. No things are going to change is not going to be this way. And for those who think you're gonNA come in and disrupt us for moving forward. Think again because I'm not going to stand for and because I know God has Whitney in these positions. He doesn't put us in these positions and lead us so I just trust I walk on say in. I just trust when I take a stand because something's wrong that he's going to be there to help me. Guide me to help make that right to help bring in people because there are so many people in this community who have trusted and believed in things that I'm saying and things that I'm trying to do ness why I don't think of it as a leader because there are so many people doing this work at the same time and that's what impacts the change you know. Sometimes the the idea or vision may come to me like the dialogue on race. No our community group Which was formed from two in WBZ? Former End Alesi he presidents. Who just felt. Something's missing. There's something else that needs to be happening. In this community that the end of Lacey Pe- was not fulfilling or addressing was outside of their mission and we sat down and talked about it in the community. Group came out of that a small group of people it was ten of us and we pretty much kept it. Ten people four started learning how we can impact the slammer thing and our new mountain climbers giving circle was formed and that's a whole nother story but being able to from going from a group a small group who was putting in grant proposals to the Community Foundation of Newark Valley asking for state money. No five hundred dollars to help us with not rap program and things like that and that was in two thousand three two thousand four two thousand five. We got like a total fifteen hundred dollars over three years to two thousand five in new mountain climbers and in two thousand six. We were sitting at the table as as grant her and funding programs in the community by putting our funds together being in contact to have those phones leveraged the Ford Foundation. And now we have an endowed fund We've put thousands of dollars back into the community of the dialogue on race is actually a committee out of the community group which after the Mascot Change in. Blacksburg hiring of the first African American Superintendent and then the election of President Obama and saying just how deeply seated. Racism was in our community. People that you knew people that you work with people that stood with you and things were different them. So we're like when you talk about this. So that's where the dialogue came from which has done. Some amazing things is chief. Wilson talked about the ACE program coming to rectify out of law enforcement That has been just amazing. A game changer for so many in their families in the future of his county because these students who may not or felt they didn't have the funds are even thought about getting higher. Education will have access to that and I told him those students and everyone else. This is what happened when he sat down and start talking about race this program that will be impacting this community and this country for generations because we decided to talk about race in that things were not right and you start talking about how you correct it moving barriers That's where that came from. So you know some time with some of our focus groups right in with the dialogue Others move have done amazing things others not so much. A bit kind of discouraging. Yeah the cripple here. What are we GONNA do this? I'll just vote on it. You know if if everything stopped day the work that has been done with the Education Committee the Law Enforcement Committee the Employment Group with banning the box and the county or county governing bodies of the Jim Crow White Privilege helping folks understand what white privilege is and how Jim Crow still impacts us in what it looks like in the twenty first century. We done amazing here. Yes so I don't get real discouraged that everything doesn't fall right in a row because things happen the way they're supposed to happen..

"Roads education group and I am excited today to have another wonderful guest with me. This is Penny Franklin and I've known for quite a few years I when I worked in Montgomery County public schools in southwest Virginia. I knew her as school. Board member and then In more recent years I get to see her in action. Do an amazing work with the dialogue on race. So I'm so excited that she's agreed to be with me today. And Tell Her story. In the roads framework homegrown solutions for patchwork world so welcome penny. Glad you're here to be here. Thank you so we're going to just start by asking you to speak to our homegrown quadrant. Which is where were you grown or your people. And why are those routes important to you? I was born and raised here in South West Virginia. Montgomery County Christian spurred. I'm one of seven children number. Four in the middle I grew up in a segregated community they schools integrated when I was in a second grade and that had a huge impact on me. I did not really know it then but I can tell with the work that I do. In reflecting back on why Think in pushed so hard about different things a lot of that comes back from experiences through going through integration. My father is from Chris. Byrd was from Christmas. Bird went to youngstown. Ohio as many African Americans did in the forties fifties to find work. Because they couldn't find work in the south met my mother in yet stand. Ohio married her and then bought her back to do snake. Holler in Christian spurred and she says she didn't know it then but she realized that God had this little piece of heaven ready for her. She said she cried a lot when she woke up the next Lord looked around and realized where he was so with her being from Ohio. She did not. She hit not really experienced segregation Like it was in the south and she has this attitude of care right. I remember I remember her telling stories about my grandmother telling her when she would go to town and go shopping. That you know like people weren't allowed to try on clothes and she was like whatever and going into like an art store and tried on clothes and nobody said anything She just an amazing woman who helped ingrain this attitude of her her. She would make a comment that I can it dwells in the back of my head all the time. Who said so. You know when someone would say something that she didn't agree with or she questioned she would necessarily get into a big discussion. She would just say who says right and that would be the end of his life. Whatever so that attitude of WHO said something can't change or something has to be a certain way because of race or socio economic situations or whatever it is not just than who sets out so you just ignore it change. It is different so growing up in those first. Few Years of integration. The first two years was in a classroom with a teacher who had first and second grade students together in a small classroom when I reflect and go back into that building now on my goodness. How did this happen? So we're talking. Kids that came from all over the surrounding area were bussed in our other. Children were busting because I just love about a mile from that building. Friends Elementary School. And when you think about it you had a classroom full of at that time. Six Euros and seven year olds sick of first and second graders and there had to have been at least fifteen to twenty children in each of those classes. If not more and I remember someone meeting with me. And I can't remember the individual's name and they showed a roster where Montgomery County showed. How many of the students that were in the school friends elementary and in the classes and it had this crazy little number like channel twelve students in the class and a look at my family alone was bigger than that so. I know that this is not correct. So the numbers that were put out there to reflect how many students for actually being taught by one teacher in a classroom. They're not true so I would love some day to go and figure out how to look at look that information up again to see exactly how. The African American population was documented in Montgomery County during that period of time especially at the elementary level. Because that's the will had four classrooms versus second were together third and fourth where together fifth in six were together and I remember going into fifth and sixth grade classroom and by that time kids are getting big and it was the same size as orthodox smaller than the first and second grade classroom and the kids were just wedged in there. I remember trying to walk between the seats because I had bought a cocoon to school and it has in. It was a lunar moth. I will never forget that anytime. I see a picture of one or whatever like I know better than lunar moth and headed in a jar and was able to carry that around to the other classrooms to show them. You know what had happened out of a cocoon and you could barely get between the rows of students because that classroom was so jam packed and then the seventh grade was in a classroom by itself. Third Grade Experience was at Willow Baker Elementary School in the Cambria area and explain that experience as being walking into a school that was full of the daughters. The confederacy they did not want us there. It was obvious I don't know if it was just because of the wear to school was located. And how the district lines were drawn. It was mostly poor. White students and a handful of African American students were. The line stopped the traditional traditional but of the African American community. Because you know we only live certain places so we tended to live in the same area and the line stopped not far from that school and because my family lived out in the county we were not in Christopher Cambria us at that time so it was a small population of African American families because we lived on the literally the other side of the heel and we went to this goal so students Wyatt spent the first two years of my education with friends elementary school and went to church with mini van played with many of them all of a sudden we were separated and thrown into a world. That was not good. I learned very little so came into that and the third grade fourth grade I would make up stories of being sick not feeling good Do things to try to make myself sick. Like walking around outside without a code on no shoes on my mother many times she started working at the Arsenal and if she were if she was on the midnight shift. I would just kind of hide in my bedroom and missed the bus and then when she would come home because she wouldn't get home until after we hit Arganda school I would create down the stairs and try to convince her. I didn't feel good agricultural time. She just made me walk. I missed so much that almost failed the fourth grade and I remember the teacher getting with my mother and giving her makeup work and one of the things I really didn't like about. The fourth grade was Virginia history. I wasn't really sure why didn't like it. I just did not like it. I remember that I remember the smell of that book. The pictures in that book or basically black and white sketches maybe a little tin of colored or center so between a teacher who obviously didn't care for you and Just a situation that was not good and then so I managed to make up the word and pass grade went to fifth and it was who was out first grade through fifth grade and my whole world changed so to speak as far as education. When I got out of that building I basically made straight DIS. The whole time through that building I learned little with nothing in first and second grade because of the size.

"She's learned by listening carefully to the perspectives of others and her hopeful prediction for our future. thing. I often advise people is to look around and your community and see if anyone else's doing organizing on this issue already. That's a good first step do a little research Dr King actually had four steps. Which very handy for New People one is to do your research. You know why not everything you can about the issue about the conflict around the issue about what the solutions might be and I said solutions plural because oftentimes when we're working for justice get very fixed on one particular solution and when it comes to try to work on the conflict we might want more than one up our sleeves Then you want to establish with your group. What are your non-negotiables funny said that? If you're a negotiation you give up on your fundamentals. That's not negotiating. That's losing so you need to know what you can't negotiate on what you have to stand firm for example drinkable water right. That might be an issue. You can't back down because you have to drink the water on the other hand Your teacher going on strike in you. Want a you know a living wage and you want a better tech for the classrooms. It may be that was some small percentage of your living. Wages isn't is negotiable. But below that is not or these types of computers are negotiable but getting some computers is an essential. Must be done. You also want at Lake Steve. You can resolve this with dialogue most groups when they get to. The point of nonviolent action have already tried. That hasn't barked. But it's all been to consider whether or not you're you're reaching for direct action when you could try going to have a conversation with someone. We had a local issue. We in the main town. I grew up in where someone put up a really offensive discriminatory sign and many people wanted to take the non-violent action of writing letters to the editor and My sister called me and I said if anyone wants is GonNa talk to the person good for step. Humid gun had a conversation. It turned out that his goal with that sign was to make the people feel comfortable and his goal was completely not getting net by that side because everybody else in the town saw those discriminatory slogans. That were no this. No that no this kind of person that kind of person in any feel comfortable very uncomfortable and by the time she walked back to her car drove around the block and came back home sign. It already come down so technical dialogue third you might. If you know a lot of annulment of island struggle you might know already how to type of Action. You need But if he don't know Latin allows you might want to check out nonviolence international's website. They have three hundred methods of nonviolent action on their with key studies. You might also want to do a quick search like I did and look for some short manuals. There's a lot of stuff online about basic fundamental concepts about how to organize having to do with us not just one action but a set of actions to build cumulative campaigns to cheer goal called the types of actions are a little bit different. Protest is not a strike is not a blockade and they all act a little bit differently and then you WanNa do an assessment. What are you going to need to achieve that the types of actions that you're gonNA need to do to get your goal so do do your strategy work and do your assessment work before jumping into action Because you'll find out what kind of resources you need. You might need some legal support. You might need some creative support. You might need to join some allies in your community to stand with you. For example there have been numerous teachers in Chicago. Oakland and recently a candidate non -Tario area where the teachers Wanted to go on strike but many of their students were low income and they would have challenges getting luncheon so in Oakland they organized a strike solidarity eighteen the Fed lunches to the kids for the entire duration of the strike in Ontario. They organized a an alternative schools. So that parents who will working to drop off their kids to get education and also to to look after right. These are things that you think about in order to maintain your actions so that you can achieve them. If you don't think these kind of support and solidarity actions the parents get pissed off at you and the kids have to go to school and you can't keep up the strike for as long as you need right so these are the kinds of things that you think about. I have a study guide. Call that goes along with my my novel the Danielyan Insurrection. And it's designed for people who have read the book but it can also be used by people who have not read the novel at All. It's designed for both groups to use them and If you've read the book than what it does is it takes the novel in it shows you how to make it real like before asked you haven't read the book. Venues can apply all the sessions to your own work in your community and it will go over a lot of the things we talked about just now in greater detail in give you tools that come from the field of nonviolent struggle. I didn't invent them all that kind of guide to how to through how to think strategically about the work Ironically these are actually things that I don't just use in my actual organizing work. I also use them in my novel. Writing Work So what I tend to do with my novels is. I've replaced the use of violence with the use of nonviolent action. So in the line insurrection. It's a number a change in slightly fictionalised. Us But I've also written a series for younger to include younger. People always say that because it seems like the older people love the series even more than the dandelions direction Maybe more than the kids but the kids are really really relating to these books their fantasy riches agenda that is full of violence almost obscenely so her agenda that claims to be as inventive and creative enough to come up with dragons and magic alternate world. World's they're really not very creative when it comes to violent conflict. It's almost always there and that's really a failure of imagination What I have found through studying novell's struggle is that nonviolence struggles. Have all of the epic mythology epic the incredible proving? Heroes are Xiros The courage the valor the The archetypal characteristics that we love in our violent mythology. So the work I do is to weave those Elements from the nonviolent cannon into the stories So in our ers books you might have her stopping a war instead of winning. A war organizing. Peace work you have her organizing with fellow use to end in exploitative labor situation that's leading to countries to war with one another You have another situation where she in. Her aunt are organizing for women's rights within a nipple logical kingdom easily. This is the way that we can blend social justice in non-violent action into all the elements of fantasy that we really love I mean people love the Lord of the Rings. They love Harry Potter. And with good reason these are great stories they teach us how to be ROIC. Teaches have overcome challenges or to work with friends and companions who achieve lifesaving quest. I the that's all very worthy but ultimately if nonviolent actions twice as successful as violence neighbor we should be using that in our epic mythology and training ourselves to sink that heroes aren't the ones who slay the demon but the ones who stop the demon Stop the problem with nonviolent. Action Maine has the distinction of being one of the whitest states in the nation and When I was a young child I lived in an old mill town Where the milit- long since closed pretty economically depressed and yet a church group started bringing in Somali refugees during the war.

"I wasn't here to teach them all the great things they needed to do. But rather I was coming in as a facilitator to help them to share their expertise with each other and occasionally I might have something to add to the conversation content wise but it was more about creating processes them to learn from each other. And that's been a model that that I think he had has been very successful on that Where we're value has been created that I look now at at The far southwestern region of our state it is the poorest region in the state highest poverty level. Lowest teacher pay. They're they're losing Enrollments in their schools which means their funding is going down on the challenges that they're facing and several years ago as opposed to working on all those problems individually s school divisions they all came together and said how can we pool our knowledge our skill our experiences and be bitter as a region on no state assessments aren't in Dalian be all of the measurement of a good school but it is one measurement marinas a measurement by which we judge schools today and that region of the state went from being the poorest performing region in the state to being the highest performing region. Day It was because of the pooling. Bet Knowledge and expertise not going to outside experts not looking for the outside program creating structures in which they get engaged with each other and learn from each other and grow with each other and they've just been incredibly successful as a result. The last thing that I'll share I have recently started teaching this this doctoral class. He's an amazing group of school leaders. Who Want to continue to learn and to grow and they know that they have to be the ones to create very new different schools. We acknowledge that our schools today aren't even appropriately preparing our students of today four today. It's less are we preparing them for for the next decade or twenty from now and they recognize. They've got beat wants to do that. I was a little intimidated at the thought of teaching this group because they are they are so smart and they have such great experience and they've done so many things I was really affiliates anxiety is. I was preparing to teach this first class them. They're they're all smarter than I am on so but I went back to. It is that is not so much about content. It's about facilitating experiences.

"If there are places in your life that you have found talking across difference more challenging. I can go into a prison. And I've volunteered and taught and led programs in prison off and on over thirty years and I can identify with people who've done hideous things in Awsat with people who committed murder and had committed rape and everything in between and I can find the spark of the divine and now but boy listening to them. These impeachment hearings early on in the work with prison. My challenge was to find myself in the correctional officers. Correctional officers are not a monolithic group. But I might go into the employee parking lot and see bumper stickers politically extremely conservative and hold views really different than my own. I had to I was like can I find myself in that person and so for me yes if you said where would the hardest conversations be certainly to some degree across political lines? Although I think the larger issue wouldn't necessarily be someone just maybe who votes differently than because I can understand that we might share a common value and have a different strategy or believe that this policy is a better way to address that so I want educational equity. I might think it looks like this and you might think it looks like that but what we what we both want is for all children to get a high quality education. I really struggle. The most is with people who may appear not to care or able to be self reflective and think about what is it in my story that informs my perspective people who might not be curious. I think I think that's the much harder part. Let me know have been able to have political conversation with three friends. I have who I know voted for Mr Trump in two thousand sixteen. They're all bright interesting people and we're friends and I care about them so even though we have political differences but I know they care greatly about the world and so I think I have a hard time maybe with folks who would say like I. I can understand hunting. Although it's not in my value system I get that people do it so the hunters. I know who would say well yes. Of course there's a moment that paints me when I stop a life to feed my family. It's person who might say. Well why would it bother me to go shoot an animal? It's just a thing that's where I'd have trouble when I meet people who might be in quotes politically really progressive but if they sort of sanctify conservative. Republicans are Evangelical Christians or any other group. That's just as offensive. It's like wow how do I make a bridge right because for me? Everybody is my spiritual kin and as we all know who have families we don't necessarily we don't always blackout cousins but they are cousins. And that's how I feel like I. Everybody I'm connected to everybody doesn't everybody. It also means that I the minute I sort of disparage or say dat. That has no word whether it's a tree being or an animal or a human being or the river. Yeah then I'm guilty of what I don't want to be part of which is to to value another being. I'm hoping what I do by being curious. Is I fight reflection if you can move on to your more recent and current work? What are you working on? Why is it important to you? Why do you think it's important to the world for me? It feels like in large measure. My my calling or my life work really is redemption and I define that as freedom from detriment so anything I can do to facilitate or create space or make a container for that to happen for people to be freed from harm detriment. That's the work so the shape that it takes might vary so. Obviously you'll lose to the book that I wrote which for me while I'm proud of it is a piece of some good public literary fiction. It really is as much important to me that as a tool for engagement that it's a meaningful way to engage people in conversation around issues of how we other each other. We make each other other or marginalize each other or our exclusive of one another how we exploit. How harm how we don't see so. That feels like a piece of the work. The focus of my life has been teaching. I certainly think about that as as a kind of activism in the context of teaching first year required course in critical thinking writing research preparing your students to write a research essay where I could pick the content of the course. I've always done that with great deliberateness so when I first started teaching the course I talked about religious pluralism in a global age. I talked about how we learn because I really wanted students to deconstruct their own education and become critical thinkers about how we educate or failed to educate or miss educate students. I taught a section on the downside certainty because I wanted students to really step back and go. There are some downsides to being so sure we're right did a section on consumerism and the story of stuff and how overconsumption is trying to a did of course on forgiveness and reconciliation and restorative justice for several years. So for me that was there was a real intention. Tried to use the platform of a classroom not to inculcate my beliefs but but to absolutely invite and encourage students to think really critically to really dig deeply into their own life and our own story and what informs their beliefs and their thinking so so teaching feels like an area of it. The other peace has been restored of justice. Work restarted practices. And for me. What that's meant is to get some training in encircle practice in particular And to attend national conferences on restorative justice and attend lots of sessions and read is widely as deeply as I can on that so that I do feel like now. I can be an Amer- restorative practices practitioner circle keeping work the way that manifesto on a daily basis. If you said well how in your community would we see evidence of that? I started with two other women diversion an adult diversion program. After I I worked for a couple of years in a local juvenile court diversion program so that also felt to me like it felt like a in a way kind of change maker role because when I stepped into the process there was certainly a a kind of widths of restorative justice that informed it but the juvenile diversion program used panels. You know the kid who'd gotten in trouble sat in an adult. Sit On the other side of the table and no no no. No no circle process restorative justice circle up. You know so I feel like that was a way that I could impart those values and make change in community that way so having done that then I realized there's no adult diversion program for people who've committed fairly minor offenses so a couple of women who had taken an an adult learning in retirement. Course that I taught on restorative justice we got together and started working with the county attorney and the police build a program which we did. We haven't really gotten referrals. But from that the county commissioners so I'm an uninhabitable state and New Hampshire and I in a rural county and we have three commissioners and accounting administrator and they're very interested in restart of justice so we've been meeting now for probably a year and continue to move closer to and now. I think we're meeting actually in another week or so. Ten days to talk about might be some budget available to have some restorative practices at within the context of the criminal justice system. Here the other places. I've approached as many schools as I can. I've had conversations now. I think with five elementary middle school principals one senior high principal. And you don't keep circling back. I wish I could tell you that. Oh boy I've been just consulting with all of them but I've been you know I mean that's the work I do in the world is I go and I say I'm available as a resource was going on in your school. One of the challenges and then I try to be curious and then offer back and say here's some things that might help. I belong to a conversation race in like community like that. I'm I'm starting next week. I'm going to a meeting a new statewide on. It's not really a coalition but it's a statewide initiative on race and equity and they're developing an action plan so hopefully it won't just be more goodhearted people talking a few years ago. Ice Helped start a nonprofit that the goal of which at the time was to create a healing house for women coming out of the local jail. We didn't bring that to fruition because I realized early on that takes a lot of organizational capacity to do that. But what we did end up doing is we created a mentorship program for women as they were coming out of the jail so we ran that we ran. That program in the nonprofit was in existence for about three years and then we sort of disbanded. It just trying to be of use. Where my hands are so I would say it's largely around the idea of redemption. So I've been on quite a few committees or task forces or whatever around behavioral health. It will seem to that sort of advice to their table. So behavioral off substance misuse. And that kind of as an outgrowth of the nonprofit I guess I believe in ground up solutions so from side so I'm always saying to teachers when they'll say well yes. This is nice in theory. We've had twenty five pupils twenty five kids in the classroom in my fourth grade classroom and somebody's acting out and I'm trying to realize that the person is really asking for help and I need to be curious about child's unmet need in that moment but I've got twenty four other kids. What do I do with them and I always say why? Don't you circle them up with the Child? Who's needing some help? Why don't you have the wisdom in the room? They might eat. That does not mean. We're not full of wisdom. They have more bodies they haven't had it all drained out yet and so I think that's the thing I realized about solutions is I. Don't WanNa be the very person on critiquing. I don't WanNa come in and go. I have the solution for you. If you just had a little restarted practice your school run. Better Arbeit for me to say what I can do a. Let me invite you into thinking about this. Let's go back to your own childhood. Let's go back to your own experience. What made you want to become an educator? And what's it like now because most of the people I meet new our teachers administrators. Say Wow is a school. I had this wonderful notion of. I was going to help children and be that wonderful teacher like I had. And Gosh Now. It's a struggle in. It's not like that and we don't have time to do whatever because we we have to teach the test or we have to do whatever and so I i. I WANNA be really thoughtful about solution. And who do they belong to? And I've been reading this book I do just because it goes Supernova conversation. I'm reading this wonderful winners. Take all not the elite charade of changing the world and wanted a writer is focusing on that. He's really talking about the people who consider themselves. He calls up market world but the kind of plutocratic class of people who are trying to change the world. They mean well they're trying to change them they're gonNA solve poverty and education and solve is their word and they love to talk about solving poverty. Lots of money and they can throw at it and what they don't want to talk about is dismantling inequity yes dismantle an equity then the systems that have allowed them to become billionaires. Won't be intact. And so they're not going to critique they're not gonNA have that critique because it would dismantle their lives and their livelihood so when I think about solutions I want to not fall into the camp of well-meaning which people who come in on a white horse. Can I help help you? Listen more carefully for the solutions that you need to come up with career school that belonged to you but the kids have to be at the table..

I some courses people Sharked courses you have similar experience diverse experience. May I ask you real quickly? What is the diving guideway? You mean under underwater divy AS ALEXA CONNECTION BETWEEN UNDERWATER DIVING. They underwrite dive experience simulation microgravity. Oh so there's that does similar similar minor in space because it's like floating. Oh Yeah I guess. Now that you mentioned see that To do diapers yes. Of course that you help you in a training to declan is really important. So it's important to have master degree and knocked her degree him too so it. I think the important thing is to start our work in these areas at NASA are private space edging to experience and so I applied to China and to the country yes in General People Cultures Different Cultures. How only the language Yes Now is a little too because I I don't speak English really well but I think I don't know what this word in English Relationship yes in to become an astronaut is really too he. You know how to get a good work in group and working in other people and along Communications should be good Jew but I think is really important because sometimes Most of the time people that were a lot of numbers. Yes physics engineered. Don't yell to have a good excuse to talk of their plunder. Sometimes they don't can't Mother people to become an astronaut in all words is very important to know. Hold to a good work in growth. Yes snow working in group people yet. It is the most important part. Yes yeah and I think Curiosity instead of judgment is very important in those situations is to Be Able to be interested in the way other people do things is really important. to to take courses on other country a really good night experience. Because you need to make a other people's other cultures other language does really important Geno. I really would like to travel all the rules. Eight countries acting wouldn't Is experienced that change a life. Yes change it really does to Change Your Life Change Your Perspective. I think yeah so. Have you visited other countries other than the United States? Very fasten quickly. Yeah ooh countries in South America. Yeah when when I went to us. Yes I need to stay so anyway. Disc- laundry yes. Yes so have you run across any challenges anything that you think are hard about transitioning from Brazil to the United States is in easier challenging. I I don't know because Divorcing is prison is really hot yet. Warm yes in it gets worse came in January last year. Have you been here in the summer at all? No censored the summer. Stay for the Gab. Radio their language is is. Sometimes it really a challenge. I think sometimes really yes. Yes yeah as long as you can laugh about it. Right we we. We don't understand each other. Just keep working during the in English. Oh Wow that's a big accomplishment take a look like you've mastered the language if you do that well. I think the most important is when you were other people like you or Kate. Tube yourself yes is very important. Yes in Does most important because when I help on older people yes it's like help myself. Yes in I hope that these people will help other. Yes passively on the way the world has changed..
"blue " Discussed on Blue Roads
"While? It's really hard to explain about this. Because I was a child there is two things that I remain strongly. I saw big metropolitan in the sky. Oh yes meteor was media Risk Bryant and blue sky at M.'s. I was maybe seven or eight years old yes and I thought my God. What is the stunned it and this just noticed it noticed it yourself when pointed out to you and say look at that as I was upside at a look at this guy because I I read love blue sky and I saw Meter yes and the second thing is when Brazilian astronaut the first president astronaut marks boats arrive in the International Space Station. Yes and my father called to me see by the television so I was a child. I was eight years old. Yeah and I saw the first president astronauts arriving international space nationwide television and I thought. Oh my gosh I really want to becoming absolutely yes so I start a may be ten years old. I start a study and bolts about romy at schools that are that are A little kind of folks but I started reading in make notes about his subjects so maybe twelve years so I start made. Observations observe the stars because yes a friend of a family. My family has a framed that made a telescope on her at home to U. S. Certain stars in the mood so I started serving. We've DIS- little tells it up. As long as I decide I really want to become an as yet. You start studying either space science and face the beautiful so it sounds like if a member stating this right that the seed was planted in you because of something in the natural world that excited you and you were interested and then it sounds like your dad also may have encouraged you by inviting you to watch. The Brazilian was part of the International Space Station. Yes and then. If if I'm getting this right you were looking for materials at school and finding those rather limited but it sounds like you were the kind of learner that was sucking up every bit. You could get your hands on in terms of studying. You were finding everything you could to study and learn and take notes on. It's really exciting. I'm training twenty to twelve mile. My father puts an Internet chat home so so the Internet International Caesar Universe Universe Awesome formation. So how old were you then at that time forcing fourteen years old and very motivated young girl? It sounds like yeah Self motivated person. It sounds like yeah I in twenty twelve. I started detergents about this To try to help other students that have their steaming silence based in in. He's trying to study about this subject. So tell me about that that project that you started it sounded like that's related to exposure getting getting more materials and opportunities in the hands of students who like you might have had an interest. So was this something that you initiated on your own by yourself or did you have teachers or other people to encourage you or how did how did that? All evolve that you were involved in getting materials and resources for other students. I sucked by myself personally. Item have professor that motivated me to start the some professors open the school so I can put 'em start my project. Yes they school bug I sung by myself Fourteen years old yet years old fourteen years old. I start new our project yes. Norazam project is focused focuses all the people in the scientific dissemination by Internet or activities that. Kohl's are destroyed so I bring my Dallas Cultures Treats sold a neighborhood can see things like Total eclipse fight Son Things like this run leads. The people love to see plans by itself. So how did you get telescope? Yeah I might a friend of the family one friend building the less call her a little telescope at home in another friend. Both a telescope. Jimmy o-9 have because my father Bobst by dysphasia A very expensive but framed bolt telescope Jimmy night. So I start bringing the telescope is Cole was. Our STREETS ARE SAFE. couture centers Her senses at Sadie. Yes so that people can see the stars by. Let's call exciting. And so so that gift someone gave to you. It's like you multiplied its power by sharing it with other people of you're my passions water. That's really I just love that that that came out of you is such a young age The the hunger to learn that also hunger to share your learning. Yeah it's just beautiful. I think other people need to I thought. Oh my gosh it. People need to see the is so amazing all diss universes so beautiful. See The planets that galaxies day starts so I fought that people need to see why I love it soul Russell and try and Sparta older people to follow the scientist's careers understand why doom versus the universe. Yes and so after that I start my second Zero G Zero G. Yes Chiro G like no gravity. Oh Nice is an has similar. I start disbrow. is focused always at schools trees. Bari Children's Esteem as seeing science technology engineering math. Oh yes Us astronaut meets astronaut astronauts reply. Does I think is yes. This current or yes because the like math in physics pam scientists at schools. But I think I believe that the problem these days students don't have practice. Yes Practices Cleophas. But they students have a big interstate in understand like hard to become an astronaut are why. Saturn on has rings. Big names are of things ideas and math and physics. So why try? Teach the childrens math using astronaut Yes for curiosity Example watching a move on over serving stars by tell us coal or meets rockets by a by a little like this of our visit the airport geds and understand why they fly is physics but it is for really interesting to students students. Lack allots zillions made me. Yes so I will in our at blue roads. We like to really focus on the solutions and it's clear that you are solution. A solution area. Have you heard that term a solution areas like a visionary that creates solutions? And that's you I am curious will always say we want to celebrate solutions instead of praising the problem but sometimes it's interesting to hear Just for the for the benefit of other people if you if you came across any challenges or hurdles in bringing about your program like zero g and the one before that that I don't remember is how do you New Horizons Abacha. He relies it. So did you. Did you let across challenges or hurdles or people that say? Oh no you can't do that across a lot of Jabs so tell us a little bit about that and especially how you overcame the challenges you ran across because anytime there's a visionary like yourself It's natural to to some people to say what girl who do you think you are. You can't you can't do that. Tiny little fourteen year old so tell us about kind of the story of any challenges you had to overcome to across a lot of challenges Yes goes I might others. They older students don't understand me and I'll fraternally Officers also not understand me. In what way do they not understand? They don't understand that it's important. It also are what I always listen questions like why you want to become a national design false volume up. Strange Bang Restaurant Dream Roy. Why you want to go to his base things.
