Brian Mudd: Ask Teachers If They're a Member of the Union
"In our society we have so many issues So many concerns and yet a lot of people that wonder just what the heck has happened to our society But none of it is as complicated as it tends to seem You know it's all part of the long game It was all outlined back in the 60s and so lenski's roles for radicals It's been incrementally implemented by the education establishment starting 1980 the creation of the Department of Education Teachers unions have been central to driving this agenda through course material Their control of school board members school districts teachers themselves that are members And it's something else you have to be real about I have these tough conversations a lot There are a lot of even well intentioned teachers that pretty bad at me have been for a long time Because if you are a member of a teacher's union you are part of the problem period end of story I want to hear about benefits There are other ways to get from here to there If you are a member of a teacher's union you are no matter what you do in the classroom part of the problem in this country And for parents you got to be aware that over 70% of public school teachers in this country are members of that union It's always an uncomfortable question to ask a teacher if they're a member of a union but you should They should feel the effects and know that there are people that are not happy with their participation How do you think change happens Minding the store in public education matters Most importantly we continue to see the minding the store works You've seen what's happened when people paid attention tried to make a difference within school districts over a hundred school boards that have flipped over the past year and a half
Brian Mudd: Winning Against Wokeness
"I mean yeah desantis had to take some bullets From those who are going to lob projectiles and his direction anyway For standing up against the AP African American studies course But not only as it has been exposed for what it really was for anybody paying attention they've gone yeah you know what That's absurd You know about the time I've yet to come across a person that said you know what I do think in the AP African American studies course we should have required education on building forms of queerness that reject the given realities of the government in the market Yet to come across anybody that really needs to be part of AP education Building black weirdness forms or anybody who is willing to defend the black feminist literary thoughts section which taught that the United States is a white supremacist capitalist patriarchy I mean let alone the other fascinating sections of the original curriculum within this AP African American studies course But importantly once it was brought to the light of day the college board responsible for the proliferation of these AP courses they had no place to hide No place to hide The college board didn't turn around and say gee desantis you're a racist bad man You're a racist authoritarian bet because had they they would have had to have accounted for why the hell that nonsense was in their curriculum in the first place
Brian Mudd: With Population Rising, BLM Decreased the Amount of Police
"You don't need data You don't need anything more than a little basic awareness To know that those most negatively impacted by increases in crime are whom Yeah those who are the most economically vulnerable in society And those that happen to be most economically vulnerable are home most commonly minorities Likewise little more than basic awareness and common sense is needed to know that generally fewer police is going to result in what Higher rates of crime So let's take this line of thought to the next level informationally What would you suspect would happen if our population were to say grow by 9.1% And that it would grow by 9.1% At the same time those important and law enforcement were to shrink by let's say 6.8% You think anything good would come at that And who therefore would be the most likely to be hurt and that scenario Now if those numbers seem awfully precise and maybe a little bit too much so to just be hypothetical you'd be right You see population adjusted full-time and law enforcement now 15.9% Below peak pre BLM levels And you tell me is our society better off for it
Caller Molly Puts the Pieces Together on the Whole Biden Scandal
"Cause it's Friday. First up, it's Molly, line one, San Antonio. Hi doctor G, I called you last week about the timing of the Penn Biden center in D.C. thing and Joe taken off back to and I happened to catch cash Patel. I think he was talking to Brian on Fox and Friends saying that he thought that they were tipped off by something they saw in the laptop. I mean, in the DoJ. And of course, of course, they told him and then that night, Tucker did his opening. I don't know if you saw it where he had the email that hunter was sending to Devin archer about, hey, we've got to get this wrapped up before my guy goes over there. And all the points. In 24 items in this long email and also Tucker was showing the box on the dining room table. And you know Hunter Biden could never have written that. You read it and you knew it was something from CIA analysts or something governmental, State Department and he said, you've got to get all this and then Devin archer went to The White House to see Joe and then Joe took off for Ukraine, but in any case, I got to thinking about all of this and I thought that's how they knew to go look at that and that woman lawyer that went that was a previous White House counsel? Yes. Guess who and then she became Biden's personal lawyer. She's Perkins Kuwait. Well, of course, of course, they're all really, they're all connected. I haven't seen that and then here's something I do want you to check with Gordon Chang about. I think it came out from Gordon in the last year, how all of a sudden the assets that we had in China were grabbed up. You mean, you mean intelligence assets? Yes. And of course they were exposed.
Robyn Pfaffman: Brian Kemp Activates National Guard Amid Protests
"Am here in Atlanta and that governor Brian Kemp Todd has called up a thousand members of the National Guard ahead of possible violence because we had violence here last weekend. Keeping the story very tight, we have a $90 million police training facility. Police and fire, by the way, training facility that is being built into cab county right on the Atlanta outskirt. Right on the border of Fulton and the cab in a forest area. And there was a protest there because there are people that despise the police and so there was a protester by the name of an activist by the name of Manuel turnip 26 years old who shot at a Georgia state patrol officer and then was shot and killed in this. And then a week ago last weekend, there were riots because that person is dead. The rioting for people that don't understand the landscape of this, the rioting was in downtown Atlanta by the Westin hotel, which is in the center of the city where people come and know Atlanta from the Olympics back in the 1996 and all of that and so you're talking about rioting in the downtown area where our hotels and stores and restaurants, but this police facility that they call cop city is easily a good 20, 30 minutes away from there. So again, it's outside agitators that are not totally upset with cop city and are choosing to take down the city over Atlanta in a more of a commercial district where they could really cause that much damage and in a forest Todd is that you can do in a city where there's glass and stuff to steal and setting police cars on fire. So if
DNA, Eyewitness Evidence Link Bryan Kohberger to Idaho Killings
"We'll continue on discussion of the Brian kohlberg case. This is the suspect who has been arrested in connection with the murder of four students in Idaho. And while you were just giving us the lowdown on reports of the evidence that they have so far against them. On the digital forensics, we just talked about that, how it was just really, very, very close to the victim's home. The other thing that they also found out was that he had been in that area. It near their house at least 12 times prior to the murders. So this, again, it links him forensic digital phone forensics, link him to that house, 12 times before the murders. So that is, that is very damning evidence. Now, the reason it's circumstantial evidence and not direct evidence, they claim, is because he could say, well, that was not me in the car that was someone else in the car. With my phone. With my phone. Of course, we know that that is so far fetched, but he could say that. He could argue that. And all they have to do is cast a little doubt in the minds of the jurors, and they can do that. So anyway, the other interesting piece of evidence is the eyewitness, the eyewitness was Dylan Moore descent. She was one of the one of the residents of that house that was not murdered. Okay, so we need to lay this out. There were 6 people in the house, apparently there were three floors or two floors. I think there were three stories. Three stories. Apparently the two people who were the two girls who were at the ground floor were not killed. Before other people, too, on the first floor or the second floor. And two and a third were killed, three girls and one boy.
Debbie and Dinesh Discuss the Latest in the Bryan Kohberger Case
"W continues to follow pretty intently the Brian koberger case, and I'm interested in it also, so we will often discuss the latest developments in the case I believe the next event. When is the next hearing coming up? It's I believe it's June 26th or 25th, something like that. At the end of the day, it's in a few months, but nevertheless, through reports, it appears like a, we're getting an idea of what the evidence is like against this guy and you got the good. You've got the goods on it. Yeah, yeah, so there are 5 key pieces of evidence really right now that we know of. Now they did, so let me go through for those first. So this was basically in the affidavit that they revealed a couple of weeks ago, which is why they arrested Ryan coburger because of this. By the way, just to set a context for people who don't know, we're talking about the killing of the four students in Idaho. And a man has been arrested, in fact, a criminology, PhD, who will live ten minutes away and was affiliated with an academic institution actually in Washington state, but right on the Idaho border. All right, so what's the evidence? So the evidence is that they found a sheath. It's a knife sheath. Right next to one of the bodies of the girls, right? And that sheath, am I saying it right? She. Sheath, right, okay. That sheath has DNA on it. It has touch DNA as we know now with forensics being just amazing these days. Now they can do touch DNA, of course they can do blood DNA, saliva DNA, all of that. Everything has DNA, right? So the button had DNA. And that button had his DNA.
Senator J.D. Vance Unpacks America's Shortsighted Ukraine Strategy
"Think it's so wrong what we are doing with Ukraine. I think that sending tanks to Ukraine is a major mistake. This last election cycle was disappointing. In a lot of different ways, there were a few highlights for me though, getting on a paulina elected. It was definitely a highlight. And the other highlight for me was seeing Jade events become senator. JD Vance, and he joins us now. Senator, welcome to the program. And boy, does it feel good to say that? Thanks, Charlie. It's great to be with you. So senator, tell me, how should we think about Ukraine? You had a lively but mostly peaceful conversation with Brian kilmeade, where you asked the question, what is our ultimate objective? How should we think about Ukraine? Well, I think in two ways Charlie, first we should think, what is our ultimate objective right now? And if I think the Biden administration was being honest, what they would tell you is the ultimate objective here for them is to use as many American weapons and as many American lives to get Russia bogged down in a long-term conflict. And look, I have no love for Russia. It's not my country. America is my country. But I think that poses certain risks, risks of escalating a conflict, risk of the conflict further involving Europe risk potential potentially of a nuclear war God forbid if Russia feels hoard and those are all things that we have to we have to include and think about in our own calculus. I think the flip side of it Charlie is, I ask myself, what is the cost to the United States of this war? And I think the cost is simply too high.
Ovechkin scores, Capitals beat Penguins 3-2 in shootout
"The capital snapped a two game skid and moved to point ahead of Pittsburgh by downing the penguins three two in a shootout. Alex Ovechkin notched his 812th career goal. Nicholas Baxter provided the game winner. It's actually a great hockey game. I think overall we started off really good and they came back in a second and I was taking Marcus Johansson also scored and regulation and Darcy Kemper turned back 36 shots for the caps. The pens gained a point on Brian rusko with 7 O 8 left in regulation. Case it is Smith stopped 43 of 45 shots before allowing two goals in the shootout.

The latest in the NFL
"NFL roundup Saturday preview. I'm Dave ferry. Fresh off a biweek, the eagles and chiefs are back on the field Saturday and her favorites to advance to the conference championship games. Philadelphia hosts the Giants of Kansas City entertains the Jaguars. The week off gave eagles quarterback Jalen hurts extra time to rest his spring right shoulder. He missed two games, but was back under center when the eagles beat the Giants 22 16 in week 18. Hertz has respect for the Giants defense. Regardless of what they've done, you know, I think they've done it well. What are they playing man coverage? They do that well, whatever the plan is on coverage, they play that well. So I think for us, it's just on us executing versus them. Hurts was healthy when the eagles handed the Giants their worst loss of the season, 48, 22 and week 14. And now the two teams meet for the third time in 7 weeks, eagles wide receiver AJ Brown says he doesn't see that as an advantage for either team. It doesn't matter how many times you play it. Come down to it. This opportunity and shouldn't be worried about what you did in the past or it doesn't help it doesn't hurt. You got to execute and that's what we find. The Giants were riding high at 7 and two before a two 5 and one finish dropped them to the 6th seed, but New York advanced in the wildcard as Daniel Jones threw for 301 yards and ran for 78 yards in the 31 24 downing of the Vikings. But he faces another challenge playing in front of the hostile eagle fans. It's a divisional game. I think that brings some intensity to it and yeah, I mean, they're known for having a good crowd that supports their team and yeah, so we're prepared for it. We've played there. Coach Brian debal says Jones has grown in his four NFL seasons, although this is their first year together. Dave ball sees Jones as a calming influence who is far removed from the player who went 12 and 25 in his first three years. Players looked to him because he is that consistent voice consistent message and consistent player, how he practices, I think, consistent is probably the best word to use. On paper, the chief's Jaguars game appears to be a potential mismatch, and Jags coach Doug Peterson knows their margin for error is small. For us, it's just a matter of just staying disciplined and trusting what we're doing. And just understand your role within your game plan, right? And just execute each play one at a time. Peterson was a backup quarterback when Reid was head coach of the eagles. And he also was a member of Reid's coaching staff. Reed has been impressed by Jacksonville's improvement this season. They've improved every week, and they have bought it. Doug's done a great job as his coaches have. It takes everybody. So, but he's a nice job with her. A 27, 17 loss in Kansas City left the Jaguars three and 7, but Jacksonville won 6 of its last 7 to win the AFC south, then turned to 27, nothing deficit into a 31 30 win over the Chargers in the wild card round. They advanced to the divisional round despite four first half interceptions by Trevor Lawrence, who also threw for four touchdowns and leading the comeback. I think we scored every drive in the second half, didn't pun again. So, I mean, that's huge, obviously, gives us confidence, and you don't want to do that, but to be able to win a game like that is really, really special. Lawrence has put up good numbers, throwing for 4113 yards and 25 touchdowns. But chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes put up historic numbers, racking up 5250 passing yards and 41 touchdowns for the NFL's number one scoring offense. But the playoffs are an elevated brand of football, according to mahomes. I think you build up for this all season long. The regular season you take it week by week, but you want to be here in the playoffs and you know you're going to play the best football teams in the league and that's what you want to do as a competitor. And so I'm excited to get to go up against a great football team at arrowhead. That's always a good time. As of Friday afternoon, DraftKings had the chiefs at 9 point favorite while the eagles were giving 7 and a half points. Sunday's games have the bills hosting the Bengals before the cowboys visit the forty-niners. I'm Dave ferry, AP sports.
Greg Gutfeld: Why Was Brian Stelter Invited to World Economic Forum?
"Then we're looking back, the country is laughing at these clowns at Davos. The World Economic Forum, I will never stop teasing my friend and colleague Hugh Hewitt for announcing that he was invited. That's a bad thing. You don't want to be invited to this nut house. It's hysterical. I mean, these people are carrying on Brian stelter is one of the distinguished panelists. This is the guy that got fired on CNN. The bald headed guy? Greg gutfeld on the 5 had a very funny take about Brian stelter somehow being an expert on misinformation in the media of all people. The irony, of course, is lost on all of these globalists and Davos, listen to this. Stelter's there, but all this fails. Stelter is there talking about disinformation. Isn't that amazing? What's he going to talk about next? How to get washboard abs? Seriously. I'm not invited to these things because I have solutions. And if you go there with solutions, they can't have their fun anymore. So the climate change thing is great because every year that's always going to be the problem. Always the problem. You can still have your Davos party, you can still fly in because it'll never be solved. And fly in on your private jets, which to me is the one that makes me crazy.

The latest from the NFL
"NFL playoffs roundup. I'm Dave fairy. In his first postseason performance, Trevor Lawrence giveth, any taketh away. Denny cap has details. The Jack wires rally from 27 down to edge the Chargers 31 to 30, rightly Patterson's 36 yard field goal as time expired count the third largest comeback in NFL postseason history. Jaguar's quarterback Trevor Lawrence overcame the worst half of his career to win and his playoff debut. I didn't play my best tonight, so I'm gonna watch the table. There's gonna be so much to learn from. But honestly, I mean, you couldn't write a better script than to win a game like that. Lawrence threw four first half interceptions, three to asante Samuel junior to help the Chargers score the first 27 points of the game. He went on to throw four touchdowns, including three in the second half. Chargers head coach Brandon staley says their second half execution was poor. Anytime you're up 27 to 7 and a half time and you've got four takeaways and you end up winning the takeaway margin four nothing. It's going to be it's going to be a killer. I'm hurting for everybody in that locker room. It's a special group of guys and this is the toughest way that you can lose. The forty-niners open their postseason schedule by claiming their 11th consecutive victory. Ryan Leung was there. The forty-niners outscored Seattle 25 to 6 in the second half to beat the Seahawks 41 to 23. In his playoff debut, Brock purdy was 18 of 30 for 332 yards and three touchdowns. Having 6 games under my belt in terms of just playing in an NFL game and trying to win for four quarters, you know, has helped me get to this point and all the guys in the locker room got my back. They've all grown together. So we're ready for what's ahead. Christian McCaffrey had a 119 yards rushing, and deebo Samuel had 6 catches for a 133 yards. You know Smith was 25 of 35 for 253 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. McCaffrey says pretty showed a lot of poise for a guy who was taken last overall in the 2022 draft. He's extremely confident and he's exactly what you would want in a quarterback. No moment is too big for him and he makes corrections quickly and we saw that today and he's able to go out there and play with some juice and hit the right guys and let everybody else do their jobs. Sunday's games have the bills hosting the dolphins. The Vikings entertaining the Giants and the ravens visiting the Bengals. The dolphins with the last team to grab an AFC playoff birth. And buffalo finished with the second best winning percentage in the conference, but bill's coach Sean McDermott says his team better be ready. That's a good football team. That we've split with this year and we have a lot of respect for them in terms of what they've done and what they've accomplished this season. So we've got to get ourselves ready to go. The dolphins handed the bills their first loss of the season during week three. Buffalo was a 32 29 winner over Miami at Orchard park on December 17th. The Vikings of the number three seed in the NFC, three spots ahead of the Giants, but New York is one of the sexy pics to pull off an upset. Minnesota head coach Kevin O'Connell says he has respect for giants coach Brian dabel and defensive coordinator wink martingale. I've talked a lot about not only their head coach, but wink and his staff, they do a phenomenal job, their challenge to prepare for and our guys got to be ready to go and ready to go play fast against a really talented defense. The Vikings earned a 27 24 home win over the Giants on Christmas Eve. Like the bills and Vikings, the Bengals are well familiar with their road opponent. Cincinnati beat the ravens 27 16 a week ago, but Baltimore came away with the last second win over the Bengals on October 9th. Joe burrow hopes their AFC title run last season will benefit them this month. I think it's natural to call back on experiences that you've had in similar situations. So I think I'd be lying if I said I wasn't, but like I said, it's a new year new team, new opponents, and so we know what it takes. That's all last year did for us. The first round ends with the Buccaneers hosting the cowboys on Monday night. I'm Dave ferry, AP sports.
Rumsfeld's Rules: Graze Where You Want, Just Give Your Own Milk
"Next one of the rumsfeld rules goes back to a little bit of what we discussed about borrowed wisdom. Now, in borrowed wisdom, you look around and you take tidbits and you learn from them. I had an old seminary professor who in seminary when I was there. That made this statement about preaching. And he said this. He said, grace where you want, just give your own milk. I laughed at that, still laugh at it today when I prepare speeches, prepare sermons, or I look at. And that is, what he's saying is it's okay to learn from other people. And it's okay to synthesize that down into new knowledge for you, but then at the end of the day, what does it mean to you? Give your own milk. In other words, don't just simply say in a degree with somebody else without your own critical thought going into it because what happens is if you take somebody else's knowledge, you assess to them and this happens so many times it motivational seminars, it happens at sales seminars and many of you who may be able to say, you know, I used to work for a company that made us have to read and do all the sales training books we could. We could list them all tight. They would pay for us to go here Zig Ziglar and Brian Tracy and all these folks as they came in to teach us how to be better salespeople. Well, that's all good if you have corporate into who you are. If you're trying to be a Zig Ziglar, you're trying to be a Brian Tracy, you're trying to be a grant cardano now or you're trying to be a GaryVee or you're trying to be any of these people these days. And who give out all this advice, you know, but it's not you. You're not incorporating it. You're not bringing in to who you are and changing and making and molding it into who, you know, what you can be. Then it's not gonna work, folks.
Coinbase Lays Off Another 20% of Its Employees
"Is letting go of about 20% of its employees around 950 people. This is the third round of layoffs at coinbase since the bear market began. Last June it cut 1100 jobs, which is 18% of its workforce at the time. Then in November it let go of another 60 people. I will say clearly that layoffs suck. Coindesk estimates that 27,000 crypto employees have been laid off since the bear market began, and that's 27,000 people whose time and talent we don't necessarily have access to anymore. At the same time taking a wider view of coinbase, I don't think this is a sign of weakness necessarily, but just to recognition of the market reality everyone faces. The company staffed up significantly during the last bear market from around 1200 people to more than 5000 employees. That's a move that CEO Brian Armstrong said in retrospect was them growing way too fast. Now when it comes to this set of layoffs, Armstrong told CNBC that after looking at various stress tests for their annual revenue, quote, it became clear that we would need to reduce expenses to increase our chances of doing well in every scenario. As painful as it is in the short term, I would definitely much rather have companies make hard decisions to make them stronger and more resilient. Then on the other hand, underestimating the bear market and getting into more serious institutional failure territory later on.
Prosecutor: Husband of missing wife bought cleaning supplies
"Prosecutors have detailed suspicious activities by the husband of a missing woman. Brian Walsh of cohasset Massachusetts was arraigned Monday in Quincy and held on half a $1 million bond on a charge of misleading investigators. His wife, Anna, a mother of three, was last seen January 1st when she was purportedly traveling to Washington, D.C., for her job at a real estate company, prosecutors say Walsh attempted to delay investigators when he failed to tell them about his visit to a Home Depot, captured on surveillance video on January 2nd when he bought $450 worth of mops, buckets, tarps, tape, and other items, Walsh's cell phone data shows he traveled to the areas of Brockton and abington while he was supposed to be on home confinement, awaiting sentencing on a federal fraud case involving the sale of fake Andy Warhol paintings, a broken knife, and blood was also found in the basement of the couple's home.

What Stands Out About the Baffling Idaho House Murders
"I want to talk about the Idaho murder, there's something that really bothers me about the Idaho situation beyond the beyond the obvious and I'm going to walk through that. In a second here, so here's what this guy is by the name of Brian kober, 28 years old, allegedly allegedly allegedly. I want to just keep saying that. And the cops have done a great job looking into this. And so a couple of things. We're continuing to get more information about this. The man accused of murdering the four college students at the university of Idaho. It's become a rather incredible example of what forensic investigators are capable of these days. 40 years ago, this probably would have been an unsolved murder. And for almost a month, it looked like it would be, but thankfully, it has turned out that instead of being hopelessly lost, the police were steadily making progress, and yesterday we learned what evidence they were collecting. Coburger you'll remember was a graduate student in criminology at Washington state university in paulman. Which is only about 8 miles away from Moscow where the university of Idaho is. Co burger became a suspect because he was identified as the owner of a white Hyundai elantra. Which is an FBI analyst identified, which an FBI analyst identified as a vehicle of interest. From a mountain of surveillance footage recorded from nearby buildings in the area. From there, the evidence slowly came together as often the case these days. The suspect cell phone played a role according to investigators, koh Berger's phone show that he visited the murder House 12 time for the killings. Not only that, but he returned to the area of the house around 9 a.m. on November 13th before the murders have even been discovered. Not only take a pause here, if it's indeed true that he visited the house 12 times, then it does dispel the fear that this was just a random killing that he knew the victims. Now, why is that a fear? Because some people, I think, are now living in this state of mind that a knife murderer might just show up at your house. Now, by the way, he could just be staking out. We don't know we'll have to wait for the trial. But it turns out the most important piece of evidence against coburger might not be where his cell phone was pinged, but rather when it didn't. According to the evidence, released yesterday, coburger cell phone stopped reporting its location from two 48 to four 48 on November 13th, the exact time window where the killings occurred when his phone was turned back on. Coburger was driving on the road back to his university.

And I was like, oh, I want to talk to Brian. I'm ready for that. That's good. But I was telling Brian that today I have diverticulitis, which is this thing I get like every 6 months. It's like having appendicitis on the left side instead of the right side. It needs a surgery, but I've been avoiding it. It's like peritonitis, localized peritonitis. And it doesn't help me. So your colon, can you show me a picture of diverticulitis? Well, I'm guessing divert divert is the root word. No, no. I don't know why the diverticulum is I think the operant part of it. Show a picture. So you can see here. Yeah, keep going. You got to blow one up for us. Give us a diagram. Yeah, yeah. No hold Jesus Christ. I hope I'm not doing that. It shows how bad it can get. Anyway, there are these little outpouching. The do you see the kind of there? Yeah, yeah, okay, so those little outpouchings along the side of the colon on the right. Oh yeah, yeah. Yeah, some people develop those. And we don't know why they develop they're sort of genetically programmed. And they can fill with debris and start to become abscessed and get infected and leak in the leak goes actually in your abdominal cavity so you get peritonitis. It's good, right? Why is debris such a hilarious word? Do you tell me you're the comedian? Debris is a good word. So that's me. And so I have to take all these antibiotics and it makes me weak and it's just nothing funnier than that, though, a little diverticulitis. And it's recurring. I was just thinking as I drove up here when I had colonoscopies on a regular basis. But three years ago, guy looked at me and went, you're going to have to have that surgery. It's surgery. You've got to get the surgery done. And I was like, fuck you, I'm gonna take it. Yeah, of course, he's right. Why are doctors the hardest ones to convince? Because it's kind of like you know how to push the envelope. It's like, that's why you attorneys do such shady stuff. They know right where the line is. And a doctor, you know right where the line is from a health standpoint, too. I know I'll do poorly. I do horrible after surgery. It just destroys me for weeks and weeks, weeks. I don't want to deal with that. Anesthesia destroys me. I don't want to deal with that. But this thing is driving me crazy every 6 months. I'm just laid out for 5 days. How many times do I have to do that before? I'm like, all right, enough enough. Let's talk about you. Where'd you grow up? I grew up in PG county, Maryland. Where is that? PG county. It is the, it is the part of the southernmost part of Maryland that's wrapped around D.C.. Got it. And how did comedy happen? Well, that's a whole other thing. Comedy happened because from the military. I joined the Marine Corps. And that the usual course to comedy. No, no. Military actions, hysterical. Yeah, yeah. I mean, the short sweet stories that I was a foster kid. We had multiple homes or just a one or no multiple homes. I moved at least. What is that? I look at people that are resilient like doing great like yourself. And I hear that history and I go, I don't think I'm built for that myself. It would have destroyed me. I mean, there are long term you have stuff. Things, yeah, because trust. Tries to trust. I think trust bleeds intimacy issues. A 100%. But you know it. You know, yeah, but it doesn't make it. Even you know, you can know something intellectually. Yeah, yeah. But not feeling emotion that's exactly right. And sometimes it's like no matter how close I feel to somebody. After a while, I'm just like, I need you to get the fuck away from me. Yeah, yeah. You know? Yeah. And that's sort of what happens with abandonment, right? You can't get that close because the vulnerabilities to intense. Exactly. But it's a weird thing where it's like you know that the closeness is what you need and you fight to get there, but you're so used to the opposite that the closer you get, the more unfamiliar it is. It is. Yeah, it's terrifying. Yeah. And by the same token. So what people normally do is they go after people that are not available for a close relationship. Or like you said, you get in and then you end it and then you're like, this thing's too good. I get the fuck out of here. Right on the money there. Yeah. Yeah, there are the therapies designed to treat that are not that tough. I mean, they're not like difficult or anything. And they may take a while. I mean, I've done the cognitive, so when I first moved to LA, I was in a homeless shelter for a couple of years. It was for veterans only. Or something? Yeah, it was on sunset and they make you do these. They call them group sessions, but you have to do them. Depending on your level of privilege, do X amount. Where you earn it. Right. Will you earn doing less of them? I need some information. So you were in the marine for how long?.

"Just have a plan to shut it all the hell down. Listen to season two of under the influence with Joe Piazza on February 10th on the iHeart radio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. We'll listen guys. We're close friends here. And I think you guys know my passion for correct punctuation and sometimes over punctuation. And with that in mind, I do want to get into one of the lighter parts of this story and that is Bill Belichick's texts and his texting style. Now, the text themselves were frankly devastating for Brian Flores. It seems there was a mix up. Bill Belichick might have thought he was texting Brian dabel, but was accidentally texting Brian Flores is how it might have played out here. Is that our take, yeah, I mean, if you read the text messages, it quite clearly seems like he knew what was happening. He says, I think you're the giant sky and Florida says, I think I am too, but I interview on Thursday and then Florida says coach, wait a minute. Do you think you're talking to Brian Flores or Brian Gable? And two hours go by and our colleague Jason Jason Schwartz pointed that out, which had to be excruciating for Flores. At which point, Belichick is probably either, you know, not checking his phone and or thinking it has had, man, I really screwed this up, which is exactly what he says only using much more colorful language. And he says, you know, I double checked and misread the text. I think they're naming gables. So he know, you know, and I think maybe to your point area about these text messages. And in addition to him, having this faux pas where he ends up texting the wrong Brian, which sets this whole thing in motion and everything explodes and it detonates the league, he signs his text messages, BB. Which we know it's you guy. I will say I worked for Peter king for many years and his email subject line was always Peter here. Like, yeah, I could see from the two field right next to it. It's like, whenever I get a phone call from my mother in law, which is one of my favorite things she calls and then I pick up and she goes Connor and I'm like, yeah. I live here. Hello. But amazing. I think one of my well, my favorite part. And again, you couch this by saying this is a, you know, we're making light of something that really was sort of a not a great moment in Brian Flores his life for sure. But in the aftermath of this, I saw USA Today wrote this and John, I know you tweeted this as well. They said, oh, this is part of Belichick's plan, 3D chess, baby, and he wanted to get the Giants in trouble for well, I didn't even see this, but I'm guessing this is part of it like wanted to punish the Giants for firing Joe judge by and I'm just like, he's 70 years old. Yeah. Like Bill Belichick is a 70 year old man. He's going to make mistakes like this. And what I wouldn't give to have all of my dumb ass shit be couched as a mark of genius. Can you imagine my wife being like Connor meant to put the keys in the frigerator because he knew it was going to be warm. He knew it was going to be warm outside and then he wanted to be cold and his wife in his pocket. Yeah, yeah, cool keys, you know? But it's like, God damn it, like I just, you know, I made a mistake. And we've all been there. This was especially prevalent for me in college at the student newspaper. Google chat. And it only showed the first names. And I probably like 11 times horribly just, you know, was like, God, what an asshole, that guy is and just sending it to that person, you know? And we've all done it. It's just like, you know, I would like to see how Bill Belichick enters the contacts into his phone. I think that is that's a key part of this investigation for me. Does he just have like 11 brians and he just hopes that it's the right one that he's talking to? Multiple people have made this point. There's a nonzero chance that he has multiple Brian assistant coaches. Just in his phone. And to your point, Connor about how he's a 70 year old man. So I saw this conspiracy theory pop up. You mentioned at USA Today writes about it. It got some traction where it's like, oh yeah, Belichick's a genius. He figured all this out. So I made a joke on Twitter about how he's not. He's just an aging luddite with like a flip phone. And the Belichick stands came out of the woodwork to point out that the text messages in his response were blue, ergo, he has an iPhone. And I'm like, that really wasn't the point of the joke. I think you guys are like way over thinking this here. Oh man. Yeah, my theory is so my son went to preschool. He was the second child by the name of Craig in his class. So he became Craig G but the original Craig just stayed Craig. It drove by wife insane. So he was Craig G all the time and we had Craig. So if Flores was in his phone first, maybe that's just Brian. And then Brian David becomes Brian D and then Ryan David would be in his phone first because Brian, I think join the staff first. But did he give his phone number to everyone? I don't know. I don't know. Isn't it alphabetized anyway? If you have a Brian D, I don't know. No matter how this happened, it was a massive embarrassment. There's no world where Bill Belichick is going. Oh yeah, I nailed that one. He says it in the text message. And she's like, oh boy, I really screwed this up. And he did. And we're laughing about it because like the way that it was executed was, you know, it's tragic comic. But it leads to this. It leads to this consequence that is not at all funny for Brian Flores for the NFL for those of us who are sitting here going man. More diverse workplaces would be good across the board. And by the way, we should mention, as you kind of did Connor, like, the three of us are talking about the subject right now. You too guys are white and I'm biracial. So two and a half of us on this podcast are white, right? So we're not without our sins, too. The diversity across the workplace is period is important. And we're all failing.

"brian d." Discussed on Dr. Drew Podcast
"Going to bring the union together. And just by the way, we're fighting for slavery, but that's not the main reason you're fighting. But it gradually, that became the main reason we were fighting. That's what it's about. They did not have slaves. They didn't have slaves. We wouldn't have had the war. Yes. But the north wasn't ready to emancipate the slaves. If you said you were fighting for Emancipation, they would have said, no. So how do you get them to your rep? How do you bring the country what's left of your country around to what you're thinking? Show them that you tried everything. And maybe colonization while a theory might have thought about. He said, I have an idea. Let's make a show of this. And when it fails and no one takes me up on it, let them know that this would never work. We have to learn to live with each other. And the reason and that's why I didn't invite Douglas. Yeah, I can't read his mind. But I read a lot of his words, and he definitely had a eurocentric white view of the world. That's his perspective, and that's all he'd ever been exposed to. Let's be fair. But I don't think you have to really remember that abolitionism was a radical position at the time. Radical. And the closest thing to an abolitionist was seward, and he did not get elected president, and yet Lincoln, that was his singular adviser. That was his probably closest adviser. He loved seward and loved seward's point of view. So he may have had more sympathy for that than we know, just judging by that relationship. Number one. But he but I really believe in his soul. He's a lawyer. That's his, that's his made up, like a lawyer. And so wrong. Yeah, and so he interpreted what was happening through a narrow legal lens of contracts amongst equals, right? The constitution is a contract amongst equal to form a more perfect union. One side of that contract is not allowed to just exit the contract without the agreement of the rest. That was his legal interpretation. Therefore, the idea of Succession didn't exist. There was no such thing as Succession, and you know where that logic first came out was Andrew Jackson. Andrew Jackson had a succession crisis, and he used the same logic. Exactly. This is not something that exists. Therefore. Yeah, therefore, it's an insurrection. You were in rebellion because there is no secession, the constitution does not allow for that provision of secession. So here's what the deal is. In the meantime, I have an obligation to send food and resources to the mail. I have to continue to deliver the mail and to the forts like fort Sumter. And so it was when he sent the ship in to provision fort Sumter because the south said, if you sent provisions and we're going to fire on you, which they did. And that was the beginning of the war. And did he know that? Did he provoke it all while they accused FDR leaving the ships out there in order to start a war that he thought we belonged in? Yeah. Yeah. So, I mean, they can go back and forth. I also think the one thing I talk about, I get on stage, I decided to do my own thing on stage and out wait for the speeches because the speeches weren't coming in this environment. So I talk about all these all these I talk about all these stories in one. And one of the things that comes up is people evolve. And just because you don't think that in the beginning, it doesn't mean that you're thinking at the end, you gave up your values. People change. You can grow. Yes. That's what you used to you would be doing if you weren't talking to me on television. You're helping people grow. There you are. Yes, I think we should we should applaud people for evolution and growth. That should be celebrated when people come particularly if they go from more racist attitudes to more of equanimity. I mean, it's just like, come on, let's shouldn't condemn that person for the rest of their life. We should like that they were like that, but come on more with the rest of us and equity. I'd be great. So I don't understand condemnation. And Lincoln evolved a lot and Douglas was part of it. And Douglas Douglas is such an interesting dude. I mean, oh my God, was he smart? And we lost Brian for seconds. We're back now. Douglas was an interesting dude. A brilliant dude. And found most acceptance early in his career in England and Europe, interestingly. Where his thoughts were just consumed as though he was some sort of profit talk speaking from on high. It was really interesting to me the way he was accepted in Europe. And it took quite a while to get it going here. He had some real headwinds. All the way through his life was terribly mistreated, including his newspaper being burned down late in his life. And maybe his house. They suspected arson. And it's just a lot there when I went back there to do this TV special on it. It's true, but he still came back, right? I mean, he still came back. He could have went to Europe and had an easy life. And he came back to finish the work here, make America more perfect union. And I think this is what you understand about him. Yeah, he had an absolute, again, as I understand him, commitment to the notion that the slaves as they became citizens were every bit a an important piece of the history of this country and B citizen with a full rights and privileges and look forward to them participating as any other citizen in this country would participate. And almost got there. It was early in the early and reconstruction. It was kind of going that way. And then Johnson and then the Democrats and then the democratic state leaders just destroyed everything. And that's why I think I told you on my other at the time we were on the air together. I would say that the single person who did the most damage to America is not on the outside force and the Japanese and Pearl Harbor. It was John Wilkes booth. Because if you had this Lincoln and you combine them with we now know of grant, the greatness that he was, the great person he was in his own way. And then you combine that with the genius of Frederick Douglass as a self made man. We would have been a different we might not have needed the 1960s. Yeah. Yeah, and understand what Brian is saying is that we were going towards.
"brian d." Discussed on Dr. Drew Podcast
"Mercury during the first half of his presidency, and the major side effect of mercury is depression. And he is described as having had severe depressions during those early years. So isn't that interesting? Is it another sidebar? I never knew that. Sidebar of history. So anyway, so the next day I went into my radio station, my program director went. Hey, that was interesting. We said about Trump last night. Can you give us 30 seconds for our website? Yeah, I can just distill it down. And then as I'm getting up, he goes, you know, balance it out, how about 30 seconds on Hillary, everything you want to say about her? And I went, you know, funny thing. They just released her medical record. And the care she is getting is atrocious. I have so many critiques of what the doctors were doing with her. I could tell it was the patient dictating the care. They clearly wasn't getting proper medical care. So I did 30 seconds on that. I wake up the next day, the drudge report puts out a headline, finally a doctor says she's not suitable medically for office, which is not what I said at all. And it became this viral nuts and CNN came down on me like a ton of bricks. Like a ton of bricks. That was the first time I didn't countered anything like that over there. And then a week later, we canceled the show because we had planned already to do that. And then, of course, now the viral story is see he was canceled because he had because he spoke out on Hillary, which I had neither were true. And I went back to CNN and said, how about I come on and set the record straight? I've hard feelings. This has not been a fun experience, but this whole experience with you guys has been great and I'm happy to set the record today. They're like, shut up. Just shut up. And that was never been on their sense. Was that interesting? Yeah. I do remember reading that. But you do stand by when you said in that you do think she was getting bad care, right? Oh, listen her doctors responded to everything I said as though they were interrogatories. They literally said they really and they sent her to a hematologist for a hypercoagulation workup exactly as I suggested. Because she was getting really suboptimal. She had she had two clots in her legs and a clot in her transverse sinus and her skull. That is way out coagulation abnormalities. Something is going on. And they had her on a medication. And by the way, she had a stroke as a result of the clot of her skull. That's why she wore that those glasses with the opaque thing. It's called internuclear ophthalmoplegia from the stroke, and they were giving her armor thyroid and she wasn't even formally hypothyroid. And I thought, oh, that's the patient saying I want to lose some weight or I need some energy and armor thyroid was reported. I did a literature search as causing hypercoagulation. So I was like, this is horrible medical care, and they did adjust. They just did course quite a bit, so there you go. That's going through that. Going through that was really disconcerting, all right? Disconcerting. It's terrible. It's awful. And it was one of my early experiences with shit storms. Although every time I'm on your radio show, I've come to anticipate a shit storm because you producer will take out something I said and take it out of context and push it out and then lo and behold, shit storms ensue. But I'm getting kind of almost used to it. You know what I mean? They're just so many now. And that's why I want to hear people are sort of seeing through some of this stuff. It's like, ugh. Yeah. And I feel like they're my thing with the text messages with January 6th. 6 riots. So I'm going from TV to radio. I have 6 minutes and which time I was on the air with Pete hegseth. Peter Texas covering it the rally. I go, where those people go and pee, because they go into the capitol. And I say, well, that's not going to be good. There better be security there. And I go upstairs and I go to do radio. I look up. And I see what we all have seen a million times. Yeah. So while this is going on, I do what I always do. If I want to get new information, I text newsmakers all the time. Is this true? Did this happen? Did the president really go to the basement during the riots? He goes, you will tell this on the record. You can set this straight. And I could sit there and give my show the best information. And I knew for this window, I would have great contacts. I don't know if I'm gonna have an ex presidency. Well, the next one, but I have that one. So when this happens, I text Mark Meadows, and I text, and I'll tell you, I'll text Mark short. I take care of your McEnany. What is going on? Do you understand how bad this is? I also test members of the Trump family, not Donald junior. And I said, Eric, you got to stop these guys. I go, this is this. Do you want this? He's like, absolutely not. He goes Brian. You've been to my rallies. This is not our people. Our people are violent. These are in our people. So I obviously am in the eye of the storm. Wow. Eric has never would never say something like that. For Don Junior, by the way, to say, tell my dad to get on TV or whatever he said. It shows you there was no script to that. Nobody wanted that to happen. If son who gave the keynote address during that stupid ill advised rally, if he didn't know this was happening to him was bad that shows you that actually, I think shows you Trump had no idea, but he should have hopped on TV earlier. So they exposed it, but the thing that they missed true is that I never changed my stance on January 6th. I never saw pedal that. So I went back and I pulled all the shots of me saying January 6th. Okay, how many people were there just to create havoc? Trump set it up by staying go to the capitol and be heard. And Rudy Giuliani said, basically show your muscle. And I said that my guy stopped pulling sound bites after about 15. 6 months. The weird things to me is cat brought this up the other day too, that somehow the anchors at Fox endorse that behavior or that whole January 6th. Not one of you that I've ever talked to is anything other than that was a bad, horrible thing. It was all right. The riot. Yeah, I mean, but do I think that CNN should be doing 15 minutes of every hour on it? And that's why their ratings are crater. You have never seen ratings as slow on.

I think we've gotten there and drew. But here, you know, couples therapy honey. It's not. We're not here to talk about the biz, but of course I can't help it. We're here to talk to people about their relationship problems. They're, you know, romantic platonic familial honey. So we need to know where you're at, okay? Talk to us about relationships for you. You know, as a male comedian, the standards for you are not high. Okay. We're not expecting male comedians to have it together to let anyone in emotionally, you know. What has that been like for you? Is that a male comedian thing? I thought it was just me. It's a male comedian thing. Oh, wow, okay, yeah. I mean, obviously it's weird that I, 'cause I just finished real actual therapy. Right before this. Okay, interesting. I felt like you had a calmness about you. Now we know. Yeah. Well, but no, I think that I have. I just have to face the fact that I have intimacy issues. I have trouble being close. I don't have trouble getting close, but I have trouble being close. And I think what it is is I've been, you know, I trace it back to the foster child thing. Of, you know, sort of anticipating being kicked out of homes. And so avoiding closeness and so it's like, I think after years and years and years of avoiding closeness, even though I want closeness, I don't know how to be close once I get there. You know what I mean? It makes me it makes me uncomfortable and so I become one of those people and I think this is normal. I've become one of those people that at the first sign of just the first whiff of anything that's negatively happened to me in the past and I'm done with you. You know, and the people I really like, I keep it arms distance 'cause I don't want that to happen. You know, you don't want to see it. You don't want them to mess up. And in other words, if you're in my life, you are always welcome at the house. But you can't come in the house. You know? We're gonna have a stoop set. Yeah, exactly. If I really care about you, you can slide by whenever you want, but you can't come in. Okay. You know, it's that kind of thing, emotionally, I mean. Yeah, you were telling my real house. You know, but I've never said, I've never told somebody to make themselves at home. Uh huh. You know, I'm like, no, make yourself like you got someone else to live and want to go there soon. So does that mean like have you had any long-term romantic relationships or do you just kind of have hookups or just Friends? I've had dysfunctional long-term relationships. Well, I went to this, I went to this phase in my in my 20s to early 30s where I was dating, broken people. You know, it was sort of like, I think my logic was or my subconscious logic was that I would, you know, then if it was a fucked up person that needed me that they couldn't judge me for my fucked upness. You know? And maybe we could help each other or understand each other, but really what ends up happening is that you're just too fucked up people. Yeah. You know? It's like the blindly in the blind. You just it's impossible, right? And so yeah, and now I just, like I said, I just keep people at a distance. I never let it get past the interested phase. This is like, okay, that was fun. And, you know? It well, now Brian, what are we doing to work on that in therapy? You're too lovable. You're gonna keep me at a distance, but we all wanna be so close, Brian. I mean, honestly, I think I'm doing better than now because, you know, you gotta mix that also with the. Tremendous insecurity that comes from then in this business. You know, because it's also a thing of like, now that I'm on the verge of success, I feel like safer, does that make any sense? 'cause it's like and so now that I have my own base and foundation, now I feel like I can more ready to open up to someone or more ready to risk. Because what it is, right? Like love is risk. It's open up the gates. It's giving you the password. It's showing you the secret passageways. And so it's like, I think I'm more prepared for that risk. Now that I don't have to worry about starving or failing, you know, and that's what yeah, I like that love is pulling the candlestick and letting the bookcase. Right, right, it's basically going, you know, it's like, it's like, I'm an invincible warrior, but here's my weak spot. Yeah. And it's like, and I think I've met so many people that 'cause you know they say hurt people hurt people. So you dating her person and you tell them your vulnerability and then they go you ate the last donut. And then twist the knife right in your fucking Achilles heel. Oh my goodness. Yeah. When did you start to figure this stuff out? Is this relatively new? Or is this like something you've been working on for a little while? You know, it's something that I've always thought about, but I think I'm exiting that phase where because this happens, I used to notice this in my Friends and now I guess I'm acknowledging it myself, but you know sometimes you learn you get the words for something where you don't know where your problem is and then you read a book or you hear a quote or something and it has a language for it. And I think sometimes we learn those words and it's such a relief to actually be able to articulate the feeling that we think we've solved the problem because we can not because we can point at it and identify it. And so we don't actually do the work. You know, it's like we need to look like, oh, sorry, I'm bipolar. Like that. Because they know that what they did was okay. You know what I mean? Yes. It's that sort of thing. So it's like, I think I've known what's a call my issue for a longer than I've been actually working on the problem. So that's new, working on it is new. Yeah. You know? Yeah. Did you start therapy for the first time in the pandemic or before? No. Well, I mean, when I was a kid, I was going to therapy all the time when they make foster kids do that. Oh, I didn't they made you do. Yeah, but as an adult, yeah, this is the first time I've regularly gone to a therapist, 'cause I tried it before and I always quit them. Yeah, 'cause the first time I feel judged by a therapist, I'm out. Okay. 'cause I can't open up to you if you sitting over there judging me. You know what I'm saying? It's like, no matter what I tell you, if I tell you I killed a man or I drowned, drowned a lizard. I need you to keep a straight face. Right. Yeah..

"Those were so angel hair native folks I'm talking to Brian kilmeade. Formerly of Fox and Friends actually, he's still with Fox and Friends, but right now he's in this studio talking as an author of a new book the president of the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass in their battle to save America's soul. So you were just sharing something and this is so instructive that Lincoln and Douglas and at that time, people are actually debating what many people are debating today. I mean, this is a debate that goes on in who we pick for the Supreme Court. Is the constitution valid today or do we need to throw it away, start over again? We have more woke values. I mean, I'm fascinated to hear that there were people then. Like Douglas, you said, and garrison, I guess, who thought that we need to get rid of the constitution? Absolutely because they saw what kind of how could this be the land of the free of 4 million or enslaved? Good question. With only 1% of the black population in the north, you can live and die and not fully understand what was going on in the south, back to your point earlier. There were compromises made to get 13 states together that believed absolutely different things. Rhode Island wanted a lot different than South Carolina. And if you got rid of the slaves at that time, which, by the way, it was going on in every continent on the planet, including Europe. If you get rid of them at that time, you lose South Carolina. The thought was Virginia would have gotten rid of them. But the South Carolina and south. No, they're going to keep it. So do you want to get this country together or not? You're lacing together. You give compromises. Are we bad people for allowing that? In retrospect, idealistically, in 2021, why did we? I don't know. Let's go back to 1776 and 1783, and then 1789, you want this constitution signed to what? You had to bring Washington out and that 6 year period to save the country, he just fought for, and we were constantly being tested, and I'm just used the word evolved. In 2008, Barack Obama said, marriage is being a man and a woman. In 2012, he ran on same sex marriage, and today most people accept it if a politician came out and said, I'm against gay marriage. They probably wouldn't get a vote certainly not the nomination. Was he a terrible person in 2008? Was he a better person in 2012? I don't know. Depending on your view, but he changed. I think he's a terrible person who evolved on that issue. Right. But actually, seriously, talented, though this issue. So no question about it. But this issue, this is a big thing because this is where we are right now. You have people saying tear it all down, burn it all down. But people like Martin Luther King Jr., he said that the and you mentioned this earlier that our founding documents were promissory notes. In other words that if we didn't get them, if we didn't start the country with these compromises, we would never get to a place where we would abolish slavery. We never get to a place where we would abolish Jim Crow. And you can never win that game in the sense that there's always going to be somebody saying it wasn't worth it. It was an evil. It was an evil compromise. And it's not like they don't have a point. Evil compromise, but I would take America along the way compared to the rest of the country doing simultaneously. That's right. Right? So and I look at 1619 project. I know they're rolling out a book and I welcome the debate on that. And I was just reading it down and it's New York Times nice of them to announce. We had a book coming out on this that America fought their revolution for to keep their slaves. And they point to the Somerset agreement that freed the slaves in 1760 in England fine. But she kept him everywhere else and all you colonies, including the Caribbean. Remember, so we had no interest in fighting England for slaves. Do you hear the things taxation without representation? Do you ever hear about soldiers being billeted against their wills in the oppressive rules of the king? So I mean, now all of a sudden they want to revamp and they wonder they say, why are you so defensive? Because the foundation of the country and the sanctity of our beliefs is being questioned, you have no business doing that. There is no look, there's no question. You're better man than I, because I mean, a lot of times if I'm watching Fox or something and people are talking about this, I got to turn it off because the idea of something like the 1619 Project, it's so ridiculous, I know that they are 95% gaslighting. The idea of getting into an actual debate, I would say, I'm not gonna debate somebody who's playing head games. I think they're playing head games. You really believe they believe it. No, no, or if they believe it, they're crazy, crazy people believe crazy stuff, but the 60 19 project is so beyond so ridiculous. Tons of black historians have rebutted it. I mean, but they have an axe to grind and they simply don't care. They're making some political hay. I mean, it's flat out ridiculous from an historical point of view, but even if you go beyond that, slavery existed since the beginning of humanity. There's no such thing as slavery having anything to do with racism. Slavery is people enslaving weaker people if they can. And then those weaker people will enslave the people than a slave them. This has been going on since the beginning of time need to tell you so happening. Well, of course it is. And we know that, you know, the black Africans were selling their black brothers and sisters into slavery to other blacks and then to the white men and stuff. So the idea that they want to go back and make it a racial issue in that way, I just think it's disingenuous. I think it goes along with the cultural Marxist kind of program of dividing, dividing vines. So I don't have the I don't have the Temperance to debate people on that because I just think it's crazy. Well, yeah, but the thing the reason why we have to is because it went from a series that wins awards because they give awards to each other. And to a curriculum. And that's why. Yeah. And that's why I said, well, I'm going to wait for that to go away. Yeah. And it didn't go away. Right, because people are putting it in. But I love so much is what's in the news right now. Parents standing up and being upset at getting mad at their school board. And they act like, well, that's the Republicans. That's the Republicans. Have you met the Republicans? They could never organize protests at school board meetings in small towns in America, let alone a loudon county, but which one by 20 or 30 points to a Democrat, but it's also comedic to me when Terry.

"But he's written a lot of books. This one is called the president and the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass in their battle to save America's soul. America soul could use a little saving right now. But we're not going to talk about that. What made you want to write a book combining these two figures? Well, I was looking for the last time I was here. You kind enough to interview me about Sam Houston, the Alamo Avengers. So I try to find an angle not plowed and the Alamo is, but San jacinto isn't 9 months later he ends up taking him out as San jacinto beating Santa Anna in 17 minutes because Texans know it, but the rest of the world. So I go, what's next? The Mexican war, I didn't think had enough. My opinion, I'm sure there's a lot there with Lee in the quartermaster grant and the fact that these generals fought on the same side and then years later, they'd be trying to kill each other and a lot of them successfully. I said, all right, the Civil War. What could I do that's not plowed ground from Ken burns a series to the remarkable book, David blight wrote about Frederick Douglas Scott? I think the book of the year, 5 years ago. And then what about Lincoln? I literally you and I gave the same situation. We get books about linking to our desks all the time, and they're all great. I'm waiting for nobody who's written been written about more. It's like maybe three people like who've written about Napoleon Jesus, Lincoln. I mean, I don't know how many books have been written about Lincoln. So yeah, what do you do for a fresh angle on the Civil War? So what I wanted to do is also I didn't mind tackling race, but I wanted to do it through quotes, not opinion. And racist never left the news, Black Lives Matter is raging at the time. And then you have you have a situation where as late as Condoleezza and rice Condoleezza Rice on the view, having to defend herself growing up in a Jim Crow south who knew all about racism, but grew up as his conservatives says, don't ever let it be an excuse. So I said, what have I talk about their parallel lives to the degree in which they read a lot of the same books? Did they overcame incredible obstacles? Nothing like Frederick Douglass. I get it. The guy was enslaved until he was in his 20 years old, two tries, got out in the second time within 7 years has a biography. It's a bestseller, and then starts a world tour and becomes famous in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and England. This guy was a slave ten years before, but decides to come back to America because his 4 million enslaved 350,000 slave owners and he sees potential in this guy Lincoln and the Republican Party that we're finally ready to do something. Now look, I didn't see I didn't know this. People are always amazed at what I don't know. I don't know almost everything. And when I hear something like this, I say, wow, I did not know that Frederick Douglass was thinking this way and that he saw something in Lincoln. Wait what year was it that he kind of notices Lincoln? I think he notices him in the 50s. And he gets to really see him and read about him in this Douglas Lincoln Douglas debates. And what I was fascinated Eric is, we're broadcasters and everything changed and broadcasting since we got in. It used to be the network news and cable. Nobody wants cable. Now cable streaming and then who knows everyone's got to show in a network. But back then, it was give a speech, make sure that speech gets in every newspaper. So the Cooper union speech. And the Douglas debates. Yeah, they had big crowds, but it was the transcription of the debates. I made them pay to say if you pass a few days ago a few weeks ago, I drove past Cooper union. And you look at the building, this is here in New York. And you think, how is it possible that a speech that Lincoln gave in that building? Was it 1860? I guess I don't remember 1850 9. Okay, and I've been to the great hall. I've spoken in the great hall, and you think, how is it possible that that changed the course of his career, the course of American history, a speech? It is amazing, and you're telling you're saying that it happened because the wires picked it up, suddenly this is the country is able to read what he said. And he knew it. And as even though he was born to two illiterate parents and his mom dies at 9 years old and he's living in a rural agricultural life, physically, he's a specimen. And he has no push to get educated, but another theme about today's news, it makes it easy to talk about it on Fox is that education is what we're talking about. Race is what we're talking about. History is what we're talking about. Our heritage is what we're talking about. So Lincoln says, I'm going to matter. And he would take long trips just to pick up a book, as you know, and that he would sit there and talk and interact with people intellectually, while the same time physically he was working to land with a dad that said, put down the books. We don't want any more learning. You got to work for a living, but he had a mom and a stepmom that's pushed him towards that direction, becomes a lawyer, gets out on his own, determine it matters, starts running for office, has some success. If you want to study link in every speech, is written, except for the law speech, which they found a transcript of the law speech, so even that there. You see how this man evolves and how he thinks. The only thing I know about Lincoln worth mentioning at least in he was 28 years old when he gave a speech at the I guess what's called a young men's lyceum in Springfield. It is a magnificent Lincoln esque speech. He was 28 years old. I mean, it makes no sense..

"Let me just it is definitely a positive positive in people's heads. And when I was first asked to write a biography of William force, I felt the same way, I thought, I'm not a historian. How am I going to write a biography? How am I going to do this? So it is a weird thing, but I actually think that if you're not an academic, you bring a fresh perspective and have been an ability to communicate to see things, academics are, you know, they're trying to make they're trying to impress other academics. So I'm so glad Bill O'Reilly encouraged you. We're going to go to a break folks talking to Brian kilmeade. You may know him from fox and friends. You need to know him as the author of many books, the new one is the president and the freedom fighter will be right back. Ballerina you must deceive. Dancing folks. I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Talbott have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older, or the three week quick start from 1995, let's see if we can get you at a pain too, but relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com.

So yes we're all right so if you are Back a collective or quorum person. You're like what. Brian is on a new podcast. I have to listen to this I end every with this question. And j armstrong is an honors english teacher in the philadelphia area. He just recently retired but every year he would have his seniors Honors english class in two days looking at the song thunder road listening to the song reading the lyrics talk about the imagery and at the end of the two days. He would ask us class this mary get in the car. That was your homework brian. So does mary getting the car. Well knowing that there's this legacy of previous answers is really intimidating. Because i don't know what they are what they said but You know it's kind of it's it's a bit like his cat okay. So there's there's An unknown state of of what happens in with a song like this with Not not being able to enter that state. You can't observe it for yourself to see exactly what happens which is part of what makes it so good to speculate about as it is for that but you can infer some things walls From the lyrics from the performance. And from what i gathered The singer The wind telling this woman to come with him. it's mary with them We'll call him bruce. He's definitely going somewhere he is going. That's to me is clear. The question is whether she is and the thing is what i gather from the lyrics. And what we what he says about her when he says about the town is that she doesn't have much to live for in that town so.

Johannes and company bringing their five game winning streak to Phoenix to take on the Sun's After a rocky start to the season. Head coach Mike Budenholzer is really proud of the way his team is coming together. Character, You know, I think the character and the toughness of the group We kind of, you know the coming off the last road trip. I don't think anybody felt real great and credit to the guys. They really kind of stepped it up on now We got more to come. Tip off for tonight's game is set for nine o'clock. The Bucks will be without starting point guard Drew holiday. He is not traveling with the team due to health and safety protocols. In football with these Super Bowl behind us. The entire league is now in offseason mode, lot of wandering eyes wondering how the Packers we're going to manage their quarterback situation. Former Packers executive Andrew Brandt says. Get ready. Jordan Love is going to play quarterback play. You know, Erin, it took three years. It was a long, three years of managing that. It took three years and no one has even come close to three years. I mean, the home study year, everyone else is playing by mid season. So for a first round quarterback, these people that say, Well, they're going back. He's gonna back up. They're gonna trade. No, he's gonna play continues, And so the only question is when and I think the Packers have to manage this. And maybe they don't want to answer the question whether it's 2022 or 2023. They think they have to manage it. They have to be open and honest with their and If it's a contract adjustment, fine, But I think the more important thing is Erin's got to know what's in the plan that is Brandt joining Keyshawn J. Willens, You've been on ESPN radio communication with number 12 going to be a major key this off season. Elsewhere in football. How did the favorite chiefs gets so throttled in the Super Bowl? Former NFL quarterback Her wonder gives credit to the Buccaneers sample. They outplayed them in every facet. I'll be. The only place you could look is the tight end position and drunk was awesome. Kelsie may have been a little bit better, but Tampa Bay won this game. First and foremost, it was a certified butt kicking for sure that is Warner joining Greenie on ESPN radio. Baseball. Ryan Braun may be done as a major leaguer and a text message with MLB dot com and Adama Calvi, the 37 year old free agent outfielder says he's not currently interested in playing baseball this offseason. The Brewers did turn down Bronze Club option and paid the $4 million buyout instead. Well, Bron stays away. A local kid is coming home. He's just not a kid anymore. The bruise or signing former All Star pitcher Jordan Zimmerman to a minor league contract. That includes an invitation to Major league camp. The 34 year old Zimmerman, pitching in just three games for the Tigers last season due to a four arm injury. He was a two time all star with the Nationals who selected him out of U W Stevens point back in 2000 and seven And finally college basketball. A pair of games on tap tonight Market visiting fifth ranked Villanova at eight. Then Wisconsin visiting Nebraska at 8, 30 Jean looping around the Jordan Zimmerman. You made me giggle this morning because you're rolling your eyes saying how in the heck is he 34 going on 35 At this point, it seems like just yesterday he was the hottest thing at Auburndale going to U W Stevens point. Then then your baseball phenomena. Yeah, he's 34 already. Yeah, but this is this is very much a David Stern's move right? It's one of those situations where the British don't have a ton of money to spend. So they're taking a chance on Ah, local guy that's had a really good past. Obviously, two time All Star was a dominant pitcher at one point in his career, and Stearns is playing a little bit of money ball here and just trying to squeeze the last little bit of baseball out of Jordan Zimmermann. It almost feels like Billy being with the Oakland A's and money of all its 17 18. We live.

"Brian D. He could breathe easy. Packers fans. Aaron Rodgers should be back in green and gold in 2021, the quarterback, explained his postgame comments on the Pat McAfee show on Tuesday and in basketball the Bucks looking to make it two in a row tonight when they visit the Toronto Raptors in Tampa, Tip off is set for 6 30. It's time for extra points. A sports opinion commentary on Wisconsin's Morning news sponsored by all right Woman remodeling. Here's Brian D. Baseball is driving toward a cliff and the people with their hands on the wheel are flooring it for the first time since 2013 no player on the Baseball Hall of Fame is 2021 ballot reached the 75% threshold needed for enshrinement. Curt Schilling, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens all fell short and have just one more year of eligibility. It's safe to say they're not gonna make it, which is crazy in and of itself, But this is bigger than that. The Hall of Fame induction at its core is for the fans. It gives the older generation a chance to reminisce the younger fans, a glimpse of the game's great history and new fans that opportunity to jump on board. And this year Once again, we've been robbed of all of that in a time when the game needs it the most My fondest memories as a kid involved baseball. I played Little League year round because the weather where I lived in Orlando, Florida allowed for it. I was captivated by Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds chasing history. I didn't care about P E DS then and I don't care Now it got me to watch. Forget the world. Syriza the home run Derby in the All Star Game, where must watch events every year. Heck, I would watch a random Mets Braves game on a Monday and I just because it was on now it's part of my job to pay attention, and even that's hard to do. I really get excited about the Brewers two days a year, Opening day and September 1st. And the sad thing is, I don't think I'm alone. My generation doesn't care about your valiant crusade to uphold the integrity of the game. You think the next generation does. We just want to be entertained, and now we can't even have that that flips or chastised pimping. The home run has caused to get pegged. Juice, baseballs or sacrilege, and one of the game's bravest young stars had to publicly apologize for hitting a grand Slam this past season. The long and short of it is this. Baseball continues to do everything wrong, and it's whittling away. That's own future in the process. So congratulations to rob Manfred in the baseball writers for upholding the integrity of a game that nobody will give a damn about real real soon. Today's extra points are brought to you by all right home and remodeling if you want it done, right call. All right, Bob, you cruise with what.

"All sports desk. Here's Brian D. This weekend's NFC championship game will be a rematch of a week. Six battle between the pack in the Buck's head coach Matt the floor has not forgotten how that first one went down for his team. On time. You'd be pretty examines hard to say it's not as bad as it looks. We will see if the pack in balance back on Sunday kickoff from Lambeau Set for 205. The winner advances to the Super Bowl. It's time for extra points. A sports opinion commentary on Wisconsin's Morning news sponsored by all right home and remodeling, Here's Brian D. For each of the last two seasons, The Milwaukee Bucks have been the best regular season team in the NBA. They rightfully cell have been the favorites to represent the East in the finals. That is not the case anymore. That distinction now belongs to the Brooklyn Nets through the off the court drama out the window for just a second and just look at basketball. The Nets are unquestionably the most talented and most credential team in the East. Kevin Durant as a legal MVP, two finals MVPs and two championship rings. James Harden is a legal MVP and a three time scoring champion, and Kyrie Irving when he has his head screwed on straight, is one of the game's best closers who hit one of the biggest shots and n ba history. They're experienced. They're talented, and they're damn good. This is all great news for the Milwaukee Bucks, who no longer have to carry all the weight of external expectation that is the Nets way to carry. Now you can insert your own James Harden joke here. All the national media coverage all the criticism all the attention now lands on the circus and Brooklyn. The box can just focus on hooping and maybe even for the first time in a while embracing underdog role. Take no stock in Monday's loss to the Nets. It was a great regular season basketball game. The Bucks just came up a little bit short. It's not about January. It's never been about January. It's always about June and in June, I think we'll be saying that the Nets were the best thing that ever happened to the bucks. They removed all of the pressure. Days. Extra points are brought to you by all right home in her modeling If you want it done, right call, all right. From the convention..
