I think most education degrees that masters you're. You're talking about not really help people. They don't teach that stuff. South part of the education you get theories about how people learn how to manage an disruptive unruly classroom, or am I wrong? I think that's not true I think I would rather see people who have an education. Certification than people who don't because I think that it's important to know something about the failure. Going into I would not like to see people going into medicine. Who had no medical training? There is pedagogical training.

We've new ones. I don't think we're making progress they're. Written a lot about the DADS I happen. I happen to think that school choice is not only fed, but the school choice. I'm old enough to remember when the term school choice with stigmatized because it, it really was born with the southern segregation movement and the Charter. People hate to hear, but it's true. The term school choice was the favourite. Gun of the southern governors in the seventh southern senators, because it was their way of maintaining segregation, and there have been many studies coming from the Ucla Center on Civil Rights, and from other civil rights groups The any kind of choice, intensifies segregation, racial segregation, social segregation, religious segregation, and that's true internationally, not just here. I'll just close with the question response to that. You can let you respond and have the last word. I. Don't really care about the phrase The people that I know include myself again in this who who are in favor of school choice. Are deeply disturbed by the lack of. Opportunity available to the poorest children, America many of whom tragically are black. Black parents are the biggest proponents of charter schools. They are the biggest proponents of choice. It's true. They are aided by billionaires, but at least somebody cares about him. I don't think it's correct to suggest or imply that people who want choice for parents and children are somehow racist I. Just don't think it's true. While I, I haven't said there. Anyone who supports choice is racist. Although the school choice movement did begin a amongst the southern segregationists, but I think it's important to spawn that in the only massive vote on charter schools took place in Massachusetts in twenty sixteen at it was on one side where the teachers and parents at the local school committees civil rights groups, and they were against expanding charters on the other side were the waltons Michael Bloomberg hedge. Fund managers a lot of incredibly wealthy people who said we're here to provide more charter schools and more choices, and that measure went down and every single minority community black and. And Hispanic parents voted against it. The only place that won a majority were in wealthy white communities that never expected to see a charter school in their own community, but we thought it should work for someone else so to say that black and Hispanic parents are the main drivers of this moving ignores the fact that the overwhelming majority of black and Hispanic children are in public schools. They are not on waiting. Lists talk about waiting lists is is ridiculous because no one has ever audited them and the few instances where they were for example in Boston they were audited by the local public radio station and they found duplications trip. Arche, then accepted who are still on a waiting list. Waiting lists were in fact, vastly inflated, so don't believe that you don't think that the charter schools of of New York City, success, Academy Charter schools of New Orleans have waiting lists that people. That lottery is irrelevant. It's just it's just a PR move. It. There I live in a neighborhood with a success academy school. They are constantly advertising for students. It's a marketing ploy. I'd that there are waiting lists in New Orleans except to get into the very best schools, because half the schools are failing schools half the charters New Orleans failing schools, so of course kids WANNA get out of the failing schools and get into the successful schools, but that's only you know it's a half-and-half deal and New York is I, said success. Academy is constantly trying to. To pump up their applications, so they can have a lottery but I think that in most of the charters. They don't have lotteries at all. Because there is not that overwhelming demand, there are not huge lists waiting to get into charters, only six percents and Detroit. They have lots of charters that closed because there was no demand Washington state where Bill Gates thought to install charters, several of his charters already closed because of because of a lack of demand so I think they should really stop. Playing this card of there's this huge demand hundreds of thousands of cancer are on the waiting list is simply not true. Eighty percent of of the charter schools in Los Angeles have vacancies at least when they were open, eighty percent or more than eighty percent had bacon cheese, so yeah, a few successful schools have waiting lists most or not successful schools.

"Large influx of testosterone males receive during puberty scientists very clear here. There's no doubt that testosterone is the reason to biological men is a group performed better than women in sports. That's why both men and women dope, they engines that are high into SaaS thrown on average in elite biological male athletes. There's thirty times more testosterone president leading to physical characteristics that almost guarantee a higher rate of success in sporting events. But don't take my word for it. Here's some examples so you see Telfer a biological male who won three. Titles in the northeast ten championships for women's track and received the most outstanding track athlete award or Fallon FOX, if via logical male, who shattered female fighter too meek, Brent's is it and gave her a concussion. Brent said she never felt so overpowered in her life. Or Gabriel Ludwig a fifty year old six foot eight inch two hundred thirty five pound biological male who led the mission college women's basketball team to a national championships with the most rebounds. The list goes on and on. I for one don't think it's fair or equal to make young biological women compete against biological male. This Bill claims to fight for equality. But it seems to be far from equal for the young female athletes across our country Irish my colleagues vote against this Bill, are you gentlemen reserves gentlemen, from New York, we spend crat Jerry Nadler, one minute to a distinguished member of the judiciary committee. The gentleman from Arizona, MRs San gemin- from Arizona's recognized for one minute. I thank the gentleman for yielding, Mr Speaker, I rise today in support of HR five the equality act, and I want to thank my friend and fellow recovering mayor congressman Seleny for his strong, and unwavering leadership on this historic civil rights legislation when it comes. Equality. There is no doubt. We have come a long way, but following the landmark supreme court ruling that legalized gay marriage in all fifty states. The hard truth is that discrimination based on sexual orientation, is still permitted under the law, LGBTQ individuals face this reality every day that they may receive different unfair treatment in employment housing public accommodation, public, education, and more. We are better than that. We are a nation that believes all are created equal that this truth is self evident. I rise today and fervent support of the equality act because everyone should be treated equally no matter who they are, who they love how they express themselves, whether you're in Phoenix or Philadelphia Mesa or Montgomery, you deserve to be seen to be heard, and to be welcomed yield back. Thank you. Gentleman. Reserves gentleman from Georgia are judge reserves, gentlemen. From New York. Speaker, I yield two minutes to the gentleman from Utah. Just to mcadams. Gentleman from Utah's recognized for two minutes. Thank you. Thank you. Mr speaker. Thank you. Mr Speaker, I would like to ask Mr. Cecil Leany, if he will engage with me for the purpose of colloquy. Yes, I'd be happy to engage as my colleague from Utah. Thank you, congressman. I want to confirm and clarify on our debate today that HR five does not change our nation's long standing, first amendment rights to free religious exercise speech and association. I understand it houses of worship will not be affected in their religious observances by the public accommodations provision in HR five. The current exemption entitled to of the Civil Rights Act remains in place, so chapels temples, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship will continue to have legal certainty to practice their religion conduct services and affiliate with fellow members of their religion as well as engage. And welcome others, not of their faith in their houses of worship for religious activity or faith practice, as they do now. Yes, that is correct. HR five ads protected classes to title to the Civil Rights Act. But does not revise the exception for private establishes? Not open to the public meeting houses of worship can continue their practices as before including limiting in mission, or attendance to members of their faith. Thank you. And also to clarify your understanding that nothing in HR five compels, a clergy member to perform a religious ceremony in conflict with their religious beliefs that is faith groups can continue to perform marriages blessings, baptisms and other practices for their own members and consistent with their beliefs consistent with the first amendment rights, correct. Yes. HR five does not nor could any legislation supersede the first amendment HR five allows the standard set by prior civil rights law to not interfere with worship and religious practices by religious organizations. Thank you. Congressman. Yield's back gentleman reserves gentleman from Georgia. Thank you. Are you almost have one minute to just basically give response to that colloquy, because it's really interesting because I'm none of us, especially myself have said anything about houses divorce, and we do know that's the ribs before we are concerned about in the Bill is whereas any of these groups affiliations Catholic affiliation, Jewish affiliates, who get federal money to do other things they would come under this. And this is where the river protection is something so big conversation here was nice. It provided a great cover. But did not answer the question that many of us have asked in this process is we go far. So I, I get that. And also, as we look at this further, this is why we've asked to see if we could do this in a different way into it in a better way to define these terms to protect all parties in this and not just run, you know, hastily into something that could cause problems in the future. This colloquy was nice. But did not answer the underlying question with that. I reserve gemin- reserves gentlemen, from New York speaker now you'd one and a half minutes to the general eighty. From oregon. Misbun Amaechi, the gentlewoman from Oregon is recognized for one and a half minutes, speaker, I rise today and strong support of HR five the equality act. I chair the education committee civil rights in human services subcommittee in our hearing on this important Bill. We heard powerful testimony from Kimberly, the mother of Kawhi an eight year old, transgender girl, Kimberley's an evangelical minister from rural, Texas, her family and KYW's school were not supportive. And in fact, school administrators made derogatory comments about chi- Kimberly testified that regretfully she gave into pressure, and attempted home conversion therapy on KYW when KAI was only four years old. One day she found KYW praying for Jesus to take her home to be with him forever. Let me say that another way a four year old was suicidal Kimberly is now today, a fierce advocate for her daughter's rights, and the rights of all transgender kids. To go to school in a safe, and so part of environment. This Bill will secure that right. For all the kids like KAI around the country, and we'll secure the right to be free from discrimination for millions of LGBTQ people in our country, and I want to close with the words from federal judge Michael McShane and his marriage equality opinion. He wrote many suggest we are going down a slippery slope that will have no moral boundaries to those who truly harbor, such fears. I can only say this let us look less to the sky to see what might fall. Let us look to each other and rise. I yelled back. Gentlewoman yields gentleman reserves, Georgia. Ours are junk, Georgia reserves, Ville gentlemen, from New York? Speak right now you'll one minute to the gentleman from Michigan mistakes wins the general eighty from Michigan is recognized for one minute speaker. Mr Speaker, I rise today in jubilant manner, because every American deserves to be treated equally under the law, I rise today in support of the basic and common principles enshrined in our constitution of liberty and Justice for all that no person shall be denied be discriminated by their sexual orientation. I rise today in support of the equality act that we must proudly pass today led by my friend David Cecil Leany for in this country in this year, twenty nineteen we must choose acceptance to grow our economy to promote the general welfare, I rise because it is time to pass the equality act for full civil rights protections for all LGBTQ Americans so many sacrifices so I could stand here today and speak. These words passing. This Bill which send a powerful, it will send a powerful bipartisan message to members of the LBJ Q community that they are not second class citizens today. We must vote to pass the equality act. Thank you, and I yield back the remainder of my life from the floor of the house from New York reserves Jovan from Georgia public dot Collins, Irving, gentleman, from New York. Democrat Jerry Nadler. Mrs speaker, I now you'll Guan and a half minutes to the gentleman from Rhode Island. Sanjivan Jomon from Rhode Island is recognized for one. When half minutes. Speaker as a proud member of the LGBT equality caucus, I rise in strong support of the equality act, a Bill champion by my good friend and fellow would islander congressman David Laney, Mr Speaker, every person deserves to be treated equally. No matter who the Oakland, they choose to love. But the simple fact of the matter is that LGBT Americans face discrimination, this country every day, whether it's in the workplace the foster care system, or the housing market speaker discrimination, never justified. And we cannot let it stay in. As a person who lives with a disability. I know would discrimination feels like I experienced discrimination, many times in my life. I don't like when it happens to me, and I don't want it to be experienced by any one else. It's just plain wrong. So Mr Speaker. Let's celebrate. Diversity by promoting a culture of tolerance. Inclusion acceptance instead of one of fear and hate let's treat LGBT people with the dignity and the respect that they deserve honor the strength of the courage of the people throughout history. And let's pass the equality act, two forever, secure the civil rights of members of the community.

Madam speaker has a co founder of the LGBTQ equality caucus along with our. Dear former colleague, congressman Barney, Frank. I rise today in support of h R five equality act, this critical Bill, of course, would end discrimination against LGBTQ Americans once and for all now, as an African American woman, it is my moral responsibility to fight discrimination, wherever, and whomever against wherever it raises its ugly head, the equality act will ensure that there is clear, lawful protection for LGBTQ Americans under the Civil Rights Act. What's more? This Bill will ensure that no one lives in fear, because of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Let me be clear. It is unamerican that in thirty states. It is still legal mind.

So basically until the end of this week, there will still be absentee and provisional ballots being tabulated the universe appears to be around twenty five thousand and most of those absentees that are out are into cab and Clark counties, but that's not a large enough gap to close of the sixty five to seventy thousand margin that they have right now. And it doesn't quite break. The one percent to trigger the automatic recount. So the secretary of state's office and his elections division have told secretary of state camp who is also the Republican nominee. You got this essentially, the governor is also congratulated secretary state campus governor elect, but that does not mean that the result might not change the margins are, narrowing the window is, narrowing and that a recounts not possible. I do think even if we have a recount having been a part of the two campaigns that had statewide recounts, you see a few hundred votes, change collar. Not sixty five or seventy enough outstanding votes not to trigger ricotta. But to trigger secretary Timothy to get less than fifty percent. Plus one vote that would be about forty thousand votes. We were discussing that on on this station on the air last night one what she needs that. She doesn't have now to 'cause there to be a runoff and their own appear to be forty thousand votes out there. Okay. To close that gap to cause him to drop below fifty percent and trigger a run runoff. So the secretary of state's office knows how many ballots are still outstanding that could come in. Do they have now all they know is what the registrars in the counties have told them, which is how many applications they received the way the absentee ballot process works as you ask for a ballot. And that if assuming your application has what it's supposed to have on the registrar sends you a physical manual ballot. Then to you send it back in. And there's no way of knowing who hasn't who hasn't until you've received them all and they can come in late as Thursday Friday because they can be postmarked as latest Tuesday. Okay. So they know how postmark. Yeah, they know. How many they sent out? But they don't know how many are coming back. We have any idea what we might hear from the camp on this conference. Call get based on the snippet. We just heard with lawyers being introduced, my guess is one of two things either. They're going to follow up on the temporary restraining order request. They filed early this morning to halt the secretary of state from certifying the results in the way that works is the individual counties finished their tabulation by Friday or Saturday. They send pouches that are secured usually come in with a sheriff's deputy or state trooper that are delivered the secretary of state's office there lot, they're unlocked retaliated, and then dumped into the total and certified by the secretary of state's office says the final result. Let's let's go back to the conference. Call see if they're making any progress there. I was just ask you what? Approximately how many votes are left to be counted. Thanks for the question. We don't know is the short answer any ship direct that question to the secretary of state and Brian com. All we know is what our teams field and lawyers have been collected from around the state some counties are sharing information openly summer, not the campaign shared earlier this evening that there are twenty two thousand provisional ballots and three thousand off sandy mail ballots. He has offered no proof documentation county data no data overall. And no indication why we should take him at his word when this is around his own election. So we don't know the answer to that. As you all know, we've been running a large-scale voter protection operation that has trained and deployed hundreds of volunteer. Lawyers and has had hundreds of field organizing staff have been working in every single county over the course of this campaign and who have been on the ground today. Collecting that information making those information requests for those public records at the county level. And that is that is really the question. We would ask you to direct to the city and secretary of state who has decided to declare himself the Victor he needs to make that public record and public data available immediately. Otherwise, all this is not credible. And there's no reason to believe any of this data, and we will continue our efforts on the ground to collect that data precinct by precinct voter-by-voter county by county. Listen to live to a Stacey Abrams conference call that is not Stacey Abrams. Bill, that's one of the lawyers. As one of the lawyers are one of her campaign adviser speaking that was not the candidate. Let's go back to the next question correctly. You're accepting or I guess we all can accept that. There's at least twenty five thousand votes that we know of namely, the absentee the twenty two thousand provisional. So are we accepting that there is at least twenty five thousand that you know of. What has been reported in the media and reported by the Kemp campaign Kent, pollster is twenty five thousand we are busy at work putting together what we think the numbers are. But we don't accept or reject what he said we need him to show proof. We need him to show list. This is public data on who cast a ballot and the onus is on him to come forward and be transparent and providing answers to how many ballots exactly where they are to the precinct and individual levels. Listening in on the Stacey Abrams press conference call talking about what seems to be a fight with the election results. So far, let's go back to the conference. For sure can. I was trying to ask kid campaign notify you before they declared that they were going to declare. No, we learned along with all of you. And we have learned along with all of you allege number of outstanding ballots secretary of state and our opponent does not share information with our campaign, and we are learning right along with you all. Nazi sacramento. WMA Z. Start your line is needed. The question came a little bit earlier. You said you're leaving all options open, are you prepared to make a legal requests for a recount, even if as these votes role in the tally doesn't put it within the margin, though, automatically trigger a recount. Our litigation team has taken no options off the table..

"committee civil rights" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories

"John Murray had served with Greenspan on the party's art scientists in professions council. It's important note that although very small faction of the communist party was involved in espionage, the vast majority of members were normal law abiding citizens, the anti-communist crusades of Senator Joseph McCarthy and the house unamerican activities committee pushed the party underground during the fifties. But before that they were fairly mainstream political group, but green wasn't any casual run of the mill communist according to Murray son in law, Norman Jeffries, as well as an f. b. i. agent interviewed by one of Marilyn Monroe's. Biographers green was involved in the communist international, a Russian. Revolutionary group promoting a world communist government before its dissolution. In eighteen forty three. It's difficult to verify that information because forty pages of greens FBI dossier are still being withheld from the public under an internal security ruling. But the very fact that Greenspan has a lengthy FBI dossier that's being withheld for security purposes points to the fact that he might have been involved in something deeper than weekly, communist party meetings. We've mentioned before the doctor Greenspan was the brother-in-law of Maryland's lawyer. Mickey Rudin before and started treating Maryland. He'd already heard from his brother-in-law that Maryland was having an affair with JFK. It's not out of line to suggest that Greenspan jumped at the chance to treat Maryland because he was hoping to get information out of her that might damage the Kennedys. It's not impossible, but it's far from a proven fact, we do know that green crossed a lot of. Ethical boundaries in his treatment of Maryland. He held therapy sessions at his own house and often invited her to stay for dinner with his family. Their doctor, patient relationship wasn't just unorthodox. It was a huge breach of the professional code of conduct green laid out and his own psychoanalysis textbook. Maryland had a lonely and unstable upbringing, and she had three failed marriages behind her. Maybe he thought it would help to provide her with a sense of family and stability. Even if it crossed a few professional lines or maybe he was trying to gain her trust for other reasons. At one of these family dinner. She stayed for in early nineteen sixty two, Maryland mention that she was going to be attending a going away party for Bobby Kennedy who was leaving on a trip to Asia, Maryland, and Bobby might have met before through Maryland's association with JFK and with their brother-in-law Peter Lawford, but they'd never spent any real time together. Maryland was worried she didn't know enough about politics and current events to keep up a conversation with him. Dr green son, son recalled that his father helped her by having her write down a list of conversation. Topics to ask him about all specific political matters, including the house on American activities, committee, civil rights, US involvement in Vietnam. Okay. To be fair. That does sound like something a communist spy would do, but Bobby Kennedy love to talk politics. It's entirely possible that he really was just trying to help her impress him. There's also the fact that green son is the one who recruited his comrades Dr Engelberg and Eunice Murray as Maryland's physician and housekeeper, it makes sense it. He referred trusted friends to his patient. Again, typical communist party members were normal everyday people not dangerous, spies ru, but Maryland never asked Greenspan to find her a housekeeper. He hired Murray without so much as asking Merrill. Beforehand. And as we mentioned last week, Murray wasn't just a housekeeper. She was a train psychiatric nurse, even if greens and did recruit Murray to keep an eye on Maryland's mental state. That doesn't mean he did it for nefarious reasons. Maryland had a history of drug abuse and suicide attempts. It's no surprise. It wants someone looking after her at home, but there's another reason Greenspan might have wanted someone keeping tabs on what happened at Maryland's house. It's where she kept her diary. Our so-called book of secrets. Most of the conspiracy theories surrounding Maryland supposed- murder revolve around his diary. She was known for keeping notes on conversations. She had with friends and acquaintances, including the Kennedy brothers conversations that often concern sensitive matters of national security. A CIA document from August third nineteen sixty two the day before Maryland's death confirms that her diary mentioned conversations about Cuban crime bosses and plans by the CIA to assassinate Fidel Castro. It also confirmed that she had recently threatened to reveal what she knew in a press conference in retaliation for Bandon -ment pie the Kennedys..
