"Stephanie Miller. But no one listens anymore but no one listens to the words but now I find this now used to be that old yesterday what? Did you see colonel Austin licking his chops just now? Mmm um. It's not that he has thwarted another masturbation attempt by me. It said he just had his talk about his food. Did you see him? Maybe she was distracted with that next time you want to help me. Am I going to get a handful and go, go, it doesn't take me that long. It takes a few seconds for me to masturbate. Let's go. The freeze dried, no. Yeah. Okay. Yes. Hey, does anyone wonder why I'm wearing my I will die mad? Happy to Hillary. In 2016, shirt. They're available at Stephanie Miller dot com and judging by the tweets today. They are flying off the shelves, given the Supreme Court. Bombay tweets, Trump gave them the scotus they've been wanting for 70 years. If you were able to vote and you didn't cast a vote for Hillary Clinton, this is yours. You own it. Don't feign dismaying now. Oh, but wait, there's more. Other fine Americans, mass tweets, elections have repercussions, 6 three court leading us to The Handmaid's Tale can all be traced to. I'm going to sit this one out folks of the 2016 election. Oh, so many die mad caucus this morning. Tom Watson tweets 2016 never ends folks. It just doesn't. Those of you who pouted and sat on your perfect little hands, well, you have to live with it just how it is, not going away in your lifetime. I feel sorry for you except for all this wreckage. Okay. Well, there's another one Charles. Scotus just gutted Miranda rights and expanded gun rights while requiring tax dollars to go to religious schools and giving border agents the right to with you without consequence and more about their about to overturn roe V wade. But Hillary cackled when she laughed, so I guess it all equals out. Okay. All right, I just need to get all that out of my system. Oh, we also have a Hillary was right about everything. T-shirt. Isn't it also funny now? Oh my gosh. And someone said, doesn't it feel like we've been, oh, here it is, Barbara said, doesn't it feel like a whole four years Trump occupied The White House. We were in an ongoing constitutional crisis. Yes, and it hasn't ended. No. Even 81 million of us voting him out has not ended this poll. He's like the clap. He just pulled, oh my God. Never go away. 29 minutes after the hour, Stephanie Miller show. Putin stop these attacks immediately. The man on Russian oil and board. They knew it will come from Russia. Yeah. News that happens next will happen on a 20. This is a civil rights snapshot. 1954, route versus the board of education was the famous Supreme Court case that ended racial segregation in schools. However, this was not the first case on the issue. When Mexican labor workers came toward the citrus groves of Southern California, Californians began to enforce their own de facto segregation even in the school systems. 80% of Mexican American children placed into Mexican schools as the California board of education called it. The Mexican American schools are terrible, having poor classroom conditions, shorter school days, and only being taught how to speak English. In 1944, parents, ala Mendez insisted that not only his children, but all Mexican American students be given a quality of education equal to their Anglo neighbors, but the school board refused to change, and Gonzalo and four others filed a lawsuit in 1946, the case was heard by a judge who ruled in favor of Mendez, saying school must be open to all children by unified school association, regardless of lineage, ending segregation in California schools for all students of color. Please stay vigilant

"Warfare. That's no question. There's no question colonel that we're going to have to stop there because I have a break we need to take colonel Austin bay, listen to that insight. What tremendous insight the book cocktails from hell spelled so much of this out. He's online at Austin bay dot net strategy page dot com. They also tweeted strategy page, and again, that's colonel Austin bay, he has this thing covered from all sides, and again we refer you to the book cocktails from hell. He joined us on the patriot mobile newsmaker line here on the Todd star and show 844-747-8868 is the number and that's how you can join the conversation next after this break, Jeff Stein filling in for Todd, Andrew Giuliani at the bottom of the hour on the Todd starring show. It's radio free America. Time stars. Welcome. Welcome back to the Todd sterns program. Didn't have my microphone turned on because I was grooving to the disco music that Kyle was playing for the rejoin. Sorry about that. Jeff Stein filling in for Todd on this Friday edition of the Todd starnes program from the Liberty University studio 8 four four 747 88 68, that is how you can join us and this coast to coast conversation where scheduled to speak with Andrew Giuliani coming up after the bottom of the hour, you of course know his father, America's mayor, while Andrew is a candidate for governor in the state of New York, and not just a candidate, the polls most recently have said he's leading. And we're going to find out what his plans are for the Empire State. That's coming up just after the bottom of the hour. So if you were one of those last hour, first I hope you were a second, thank you much for being there. We discussed the fact that I'm here today working with Kyle and grace who are as always tremendous at the home base, the 99 90 in Memphis. I'm here because Todd is at the national talkers magazine conference, which is held annually hundreds and hundreds of talk show hosts from across the country are there and judging from the Twitter feeds. They're spending a lot of time taking photos of one another and sharing it, which is great. That's what you do when friends get together. Well, I posed a question last hour about when you get hundreds of talk show hosts in a room, is it either really loud because they're all talking at the same time, or is it really quiet because none of them brought their producers to tell them when to talk? I mean, for example, I'm sitting here in my studio in Iowa, and I hear the music come back from the break and then Kyle will tell me in the closed circuit in my ear, okay, you can go ahead and talk. Or grace will tell me the guest is there. You can now talk to the guest. In other words, I'm just the monkey sitting here. I can't do anything without them telling me it's okay to do it. So this is why, to me, I don't know if you get hundreds of talk show hosts in the same room, how that's going to play out. Is it really loud or really quiet? And every day on my station, I put a poll question online. And I decided, why don't we let America in on this today? So here is the poll question from my home station. And I'll give you the website in a moment. Here's the poll question. It says that Jeff Stein filled in for Todd starns on his national show, so Todd could participate in a national conference with hundreds of talk show hosts. A, it was loud because none of them would stop talking or be it was quiet because none of them brought their producers with them to tell them when to talk. I would love for you to weigh in. Stars nation go to KXL dot com slash whole. It's pretty simple. KXL dot com slash poll and weigh in. And we'll leave it up all weekend. I'll give my audience the results on Monday. I'm on the air Monday right before Todd. I'm on the three hours before Todd. Okay? But I'll share them with grace in case she'd like to mention it, depending on how this poll comes out. I'll share it on my social media also when I get done here with the program at the top of the next hour, you of course can get in touch with this program as always, it's taunt starns dot com and Todd is on the Twitter and the getter and the truth social at Todd star and he's on Instagram at Todd starnes FNC. You can follow me, my website is totally Iowa dot com, and that's where you can see the links to the three different podcasts I do every day. Totally Iowa Io WA dot com and I have the same address on all the social medias that I have. It's at Iowa politics IO WA politics on Twitter and getter, parler, Instagram, and true social, which I really love now that there is a version for my Android from the web. Because I don't have one of those fancy iPhones. So I had to wait, but I'm really loving the true social. So you can follow me on Twitter, get her parlor, Instagram, and truth social. At Iowa politics, and I'll post this poll question later today, or else you can just go there now at KXL dot com slash poll. That's my home radio station. Here in the state of Iowa. It would be interesting. I don't know that it would be like a Kant, it sort of like, you know, when you go to a conference of librarians, do they cut loose and talk at full voice? Because they can't at work. I'm just curious about these things.

We'll take your calls in the next segment, but now let's go to the patriot mobile newsmaker line, where we are joined by colonel Austin bay retired colonel from the U.S. Army reserve. He is the author of a number of books 8 in fact, his most recent book is entitled cocktails from hell. Carolyn bay, thanks so much for taking the time Jeff Stein filling in for Todd. How are you today? Great. Thanks for having me. Thank you for your service and your continued attention to some of these global issues, you're not at all surprised at what's going on in Ukraine, are you? Well, no, I wrote a column in November 2004. I'm like, I've been writing a national security and military affairs column for creator Seneca. I have a Los Angeles since 2000. And in November of 2004, by the way, I spent about 7 months on active duty in 2004, or I had to take off from running my columns most of the time, obviously. I couldn't be on active duty at the colonists, but I served in Iraq during that period. But I got back. I'm off active duty. At the end of November and do not remember the exact thing that led me to write the column that week. But I had been following Vladimir Putin ever since he became recognized in motion political affairs, certainly in the late 1990s. And Jeff, here's why. When the Soviet Union was falling apart, Jim done again and I were riding what was the second edition of a quick and dirty guy to war. And that's a war gamers, we both used wargaming techniques. Jim is designed over 250 conflict simulations and I certainly use those techniques when I was an officer. I was plans officer a great deal of time and war gaming techniques are absolutely vital for that. Plus, I'd spent four years as a special consultant strategic war gaming and a second depth office. I was not a soldier there I was doctor bay. But Jim and I had the techniques now. And one of the things we saw that the USSR was falling apart. It looked at it and said, somebody in Russia is going to try to rebuild it. And without trying to be too pointy head about it, there were actually a couple of interesting.

"Hi, Chris. Hi, Kim. I just wanted to point something out. Last night when Biden was talking about when are we going to do something for these schools? When are we going to do something? Well, excuse me. If I'm not mistaken, most of the people that sit on these school boards and who sit on these county commissions and city councils and stuff, they are Democrats. Democrats run these big cities, okay? And when it comes down to the smaller towns, I don't know, you know, the demographics of Democrat versus Republican on a school board or whatever like that. But really when it comes down to public education, it's mostly the Democrats that run these school systems. So for him to stand up there and talk about when are we going to do something? When are we going to do something? Well, everybody who is conservative, the conservative parents, the conservative community leaders, they all say, look, you know, let the retired veterans go in there. Let's get these schools taken care of. Every time somebody comes up with a common sense policy, the Democrats shoot it down in these schools. So for him to point the finger, he needs a point of finger in the mirror. Well, and let's talk about Yuval, Texas, because down there, you have the Yuval school district police chief Pete arradondo, the top cop of the school district, not only is a probably not going to face a ton of scrutiny. Well, that may say, you know, I walked that back just a little bit. Perhaps he will face some scrutiny, but guess who he'll face scrutiny from from the city council and guess who just got sworn in as a city council member in the town. If you've Aldi. Pete arradondo. The man that is the top cop of the district is now a city councilman. Now, I would wonder Chris. How tough will he be on fortifying schools? Will he be a believer in that? And if so, is that an admission of his own failure or will he do what's in the best interest of the kids and Yuval day Texas? That remains to be seen, but I think he may have just insulated himself from some criticism because he's gonna sit on the decision making board for that city. Coming up. We got plenty more. We're gonna talk to a colonel Austin bay. We're gonna talk about Russia Ukraine. It's Tim in for Todd. 8 four four 747 88, 68. Welcome back, tenth and horn in for Todd stern's 8 four four 747 88 68. Tell you what, this may rank in easily top 5 birthday days. Ever. Just having a blast today where we are broadcasting from the flagship station kwa and Memphis, Tennessee, and just having a blast for a birthday, the staff brought in Chick-fil-A, which was terrific chicken mayonnaise chicken biscuits. I promise grace, I will get to some of the fruit. I know there's a free trade down there. I know you're saying, hey, you're a year older Tim, you need to take your better care of yourself, get some of the fruit. I will do just that. I promise. I'm not gonna lie to you, Tim. News and K William news anchor bend eater here is already eaten all the fruit. I saw him eating the rest of the fruit. And I was like, well, I guess Tim's not getting any. So, sorry, bud. Ben is my morning co host for the show at kwa. So he and I may have a little tension on the blue show on the day, either that or I'll go somewhere and get a smoothie. I'm sorry to cause radio marital strife. No, you're not. No, you're a pot stirrer, grace. I know, I know people like you. Oh goodness, gracious, but we've had so many comments and our question of the day has gotten terrific response. And it's in regards to making wishes on a birthday, you get one wish. I would love to make a wish for America, but I don't know specifically what to wish for because there are so many problems in this country, so I leave it up to our audience, the smartest in radio world. What wish would you make for America? And Doris chimes in on our live channel on Facebook says I wish for America that each person would be guided by a moral compass. That is fantastic Patricia says that the border would be closed, Elaine said that there would be no politicians. I think she means no swamp. I don't think she's calling for anarchy here. I don't think. Probably not. She listened to this show, it's probably not calling for anarchy. I wouldn't believe so. Williams says, get rid of all in our government that doesn't have Christian values and put ones in their place that do. It would be nice. I think this all goes to our audience many are saying, hey, let's get back to conservative values. Let's get a moral compass. Let's base things on the constitution and move America in the right direction. It's just not happening right now. And America is suffering the consequences for it. You have a president who last night went for another gun grab as he spoke from The White House and unabashedly now looking to take away your guns, bit by bit, whether it's by the number of rounds in the chamber, or excuse me, in the magazine, whether it's the size of the gun, the type of a gun. And here's the thing. They're going after AR-15s. That's the sexy gun to go after. And people have asked me, well, why are they singling out the AR-15? Well, one, it looks like it's a scary gun, okay? It looks like it's a big gun. And it looks scary. And if they can plant if the left can plant that imagery in your head that it is the root of all problems, what they're trying to do is make that the poster child. It's kind of like the statue's grace. Let's take down one statue just one statue. You take the first statue down. It's like guns. You take the first gun out, guess what comes next. Then another. Then another. It's like a domino effect. And then the next thing you know, you've got Ulysses S. Grant statues coming down and he won on the good side. And George Washington statue is trying to come down at places like Lee university. Yes. It's incredible, but that's what that is the same playbook that the leftists are using to go after the guns. If they can get the AR-15, guess what? They've got now they have their victory. The door is open. Now they have precedent. They have a playbook that works. Then you go for another, then you go for another. And they're gonna go the same way on these magazines on the gun clips. 30 rounds. Well, let's make, let's make that.

"Absolutely. And it's very clear that just this is part of the leftist progressive push to become authoritarian regimes. And it's not just Joe Biden. I mean, look what Justin Castro, I mean Trudeau is doing up in Canada. First it was the bank accounts that he's coming after the guns. And it's amazing that these so called progressive governments are the ones who are become the authoritarians here and imagine if Trump had done any of these things, whether it's shutting down free speech or Second Amendment rights. And one of the things just what was president Trump too is NRA speech in Houston this last week. And what was shocking to me was how many elected officials ran away last week in the face of this horrific shooting. But rather than stand up and lead and call out the issues of mental basically just these mental health issues and start actually addressing the real issues about why these lunatics do what they do, people are coming up with scheduling excuses and starting to kowtow to the gun lobby that's the radical anti gun lobby that's trying to take away all of our Second Amendment rights. And it's just amazing that more politicians didn't stand up and lead like president Trump did and say, hey, we're going to support the Second Amendment and we're going to go and make sure we deal with the mental health issues. That clearly aren't being caught. And I gained a new respect for South Dakota governor Kristi Noem because I know she had caught some flak on some gender, some gender identity bills up there earlier in the last 12 to 16 months, but she showed up at NRA. She was there. She's one of those ones that did not back down and you do have to appreciate when somebody takes a stand and goes against the wind and stands for the principles and stands for the First Amendment stands for the Second Amendment as well. Jason, we're coming up on a break, but one more time tonight you got big doings on getter. Please share with us one more time. What's going down? Absolutely. So with our live stream, we're programming literally from 6 in the morning to about ten tonight, there are multiple shows where you can obviously catch Todd starn show from about noon to three everyday live streaming on getter. I'll be on doing another Miller live coming up later this afternoon. We're going to talk about the 23rd anniversary. Excuse me, it's a 33rd anniversary coming up here of Tiananmen Square, which is tomorrow. The 6 four, which is how the folks in the Chinese community refer to it. Be talking about how the people, the thousands who died in 1989, how that fight still continues today and how important it is that we don't back down to the CCP. And then keep an eye on your app because you've got new features coming up now. Sometime tonight, yep, sometimes tonight, vision, which will be the logo right down at the bottom of the screen there. You click on it and you start making your own short form videos like TikTok or Instagram reels, except you don't have to bounce around. It's all in one place.

And we are making the sprint to the weekend, but before that, we've got a, we've got an expert coming up, colonel Austin bay will join us. He's an author, but we're going to talk a bit about Russia and Ukraine. Today, grace is 100 days of Russia and Ukraine. It seems like it's been going on for 6 months, but it's really been just over three. I know, I can't believe it when I was doing some research. I was like, man, it's only been a hundred days. It seems much longer than that. Yeah, absolutely. We've got that coming up in about ten minutes. Here's some breaking news for you. Peter Navarro. Who is a former White House economic adviser? Just got arrested by the FBI and this stems from him being held in contempt for refusing to testify at the January 6th committee hearings. Navarro and what a coincidence boys and girls because just yesterday, Navarro was on MSNBC, making a promise that he would certainly take the reins and be happy to lead the effort to impeach Joe Biden if the Republicans take Congress back in the November midterms, which it looks like there is going to be a red wave coming, but why do you know the day after he says he would impeach Biden, they send the FBI after him and arrest him on those contempt charges. Navarro is among several witnesses who have sued the committee and federal court claiming that it is violating the separation of powers by performing a law enforcement function and that it has violated the terms of its own resolution. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took the unprecedented step of choosing not to seat some Republicans on the committee. When Kevin McCarthy, The White House minority leader withdrew all of his nominees in response, Pelosi then handpicked the committee of 7 Democrats and two Republicans, contrary to 8 Democrats and 5 Republicans that the resolution requires the committee has no official member that you would call air fingers quote the ranking member, which a lot of folks that are experts on they say that makes the subpoenas invalid. 8 four four 747 88 68 Chris listening to us on the flagship station kwam.

Race in the Ranks: Investigating Racial Bias in the U.S. Military

"After the armed services were integrated. It is still a fact of life in the U. S. Military that African Americans are more likely to be disciplined and less likely to be promoted than whites. As we first reported earlier this year, Even the most successful black officers routinely feel the sting of racial bias. Large segments of the rank and file believe the system is stacked against them. The military has made attempts to deal with inequality before But this time it's happening under the eye of Lloyd Austin, this country's first African American secretary of defense of former soldier who experience discrimination firsthand. It doesn't change as you climb the ladder. You still you still get the doubts? They're always going to be people because of what you look like That will question your qualifications. Your priorities with the secretary Roid Austin climbed every rung in the Army, starting at West Point and rising all the way to four star general many times breaking barriers as the first African American ever to hold the job. There's probably not a job that I had since I was a lieutenant Colonel, or some people didn't question whether or not I was qualified to take that job. It's the world I live in. And I'm sure that the other officers that you talked to what would probably say the same thing. There's not a day in my life, David When I didn't wake up. And think about the fact that I was a black man. Number of the African Americans that we have talked to for this story has said, when they are the only one in the room. I feel as if they're not being listened to Did you have that experience? Absolutely have that experience and I found ways to operate to adapt in 1995 as the 82nd airborne is first African American operations officer. Then Lieutenant Colonel Austin adapted by having someone else give his briefings. Someone he felt white officers were more likely to listen to was that a white

Bias didn't end even when he was a four star. General i would go someplace with my staff and we were wearing civilian clothes. Somebody would come out to meet the meet. The general and i wasn't the guy that they walked up to people have a perception that african americans can't being in key positions just because you're african american and he just assume that it's always gonna be somebody else general. Cq brown rose from fighter pilot to become the first african american in history to head the air force which makes him a member of the joint chiefs of staff.

It was all about destroying the enemy but there was something else going on. We didn't see. There's a world that i live in as an african-american and there's a world that i also live in as a minority inside of the united states air force. Those worlds collided one day last year when a minneapolis police officer his knee into george floyd's neck in fact just the how long he was in a position was now nonchalant cop. Look at that. Actually at that hubbard. Your minsk brown felt compelled to send out this message to his airman. Here's what i'm thinking about thinking about. How full. I am with emotion. Not just for george fluid but the mini african americans. They have suffered the same fate as joe choi with that. A lifetime of frustration game boiling out. I'm thinking about the pressure. I felt perform error-free especially for supervisors perceive had expected less from me. As an african american i think about having to represent by working twice as hard to prove their expectations and perceptions of african americans were invalid was really what i wanted to get off my chest. I had no intention for it to go as big as it did. But i'm glad i did because i think it helped generate the conversation that many of us are happening today about race relations in the united states. That's what i'm thinking about so far. The video has been viewed over four million times with black lives.

Americans do not trust their chain of command to address racism bias in unequal opportunities. Three out of every five believe they do not receive the same benefit of the doubt as their white peers. If they get in trouble there were one hundred twenty three thousand responses in just two weeks really outpouring of emotion from ireland that. I've not seen the time. I've been worn this uniform for senior master. Sergeant safari morgan. The survey was long overdue. I think people were so elated to finally have an opportunity to speak when you hold in things for so long without being able to express yourself and then you're given an avenue to speak. People aided up year forces now conducting another survey to include hispanics and other minorities but the hard data from the first survey is now a matter of record. Young black enlisted members are almost twice as likely as white enlisted members to be involuntarily discharged based on misconduct. Black airmen of all ranks are fifty seven percent more likely to face courts-martial as a senior sergeant. Morgan had been seeing numbers like that for years. I felt sick. The first time i saw. How many black airmen had article fifteen or discharges. In comparison to white airmen across the air force and the thing that i think hurt the most was that no one wanted to have the conversation. Thanks for joining us again. last summer. That conversation began at randolph. Air force base in texas with a program called real talk hosted by lieutenant. General brad webb. Obviously the air force has Fundamentally had a wakeup call in which black airman chief master sergeant michael holland got a chance to speak truth. Do air force power. This is brave for us. To jesse seen to general web. This bree.
