Charlie Kirk: Tampa Is Where Turning Point USA Began
"I ask you this question every time we get together. And I'm sorry to ask it for the 99th time. But when you were putting turning point together in your parents garage, could you have ever envisioned that as you look around and see this Tampa convention center and all of the booths and the security and the kids and the could you have ever dreamed it was going to turn out like this? No, and it's actually amazing being in Tampa because Tampa Florida is really where turning point USA kind of came to life in some sense. I could tell the full story and I wrote about it in the book, but this was where the Republican National Convention was in 2012. And I flew down here, no money, no connections, no idea what I was doing. I couldn't find a hotel, couldn't rent a car. There was a hurricane that first Monday you might remember. I was here. I remember? Oh, yeah. I interviewed you, I think. Yeah, and I was just scrapping, hustling, trying to, you know, just trying to make things happen. And so the answer is no, but that's what's so beautiful about America is that you take a small risk and you grow and I thought our events were a big deal when we had 500 students there and you were at some of those events. Now we have 5006 thousand students. We have the top speakers and the whole movement that are coming to Santos and Trump and Holly and Cruz and gutfeld just blows you away. And it really is the lord's blessing as well. We're just instruments for his will. And we're doing everything we possibly can though. It's a beautiful country, and we want to do our part to say that. And
Fake Nazis Protest Outside of Turning Point USA Event
"Including the alleged pro desantis pro Trump Nazi protesters in the front of the convention center. I walked right by them, the security immediately said, can you please keep moving? Please, and they were Charlie's got a great security operation. It's tragic that he has to, but that's the state of affairs in America right now, conservatives have to be careful and safe. Nonetheless, there were like 9 or ten people with masks on to obscure their identity, pretending to be Nazis. In front of the turning point convention at the Tampa convention center. And a lot of the young people at the convention said they were feds. It's a false flag from either the FBI or a federal agency. I am so intrigued by this. Because it makes you wonder, you know, who were they? Obviously the intent is to make people think that Nazis like are like Republicans. You know, that Ron DeSantis is a Nazi. So let's have people stand there with a bullhorn and say how great Ron DeSantis is while waving a Nazi flag. And I've got some video. I think I took some video for you, uriel. Because those aren't, I don't think those are those aren't the Nazi protesters. They were literally waving swastika flags. And they were, I mean, it was fake. It was totally staged.
Turning Point USA Hosts Successful Event in Tampa
"A great weekend. We're kicking off a Monday with some good news because I spent some time over the weekend. In Tampa with a whole bunch of turning point USA convention goers. These are high school college kids from all over the country. Who went to the Tampa convention center and just had an incredibly great time. It went so well. I'm so impressed by turning point and by Charlie Kirk and my producer Derek klingle even came in from New York to interview some fellow young people. Derek, this is right in his Wheelhouse. And I want to start this hour with some optimism. Because when you get down when you get discouraged, when you are worried about the future of the country, I know it's trite and it's a cliche, but these kids are the future of the country. These kids are tomorrow's Congress people and school board members and governors and mayors may be president.

The Real Problem With Piracy
"Let me talk a little bit about, well, piracy. By piracy, we mean this. And by the way, we're not raising this topic indignation. But what's happened is whenever you put a movie and this was through number 80,000 people saw it and the virtual premiere, what happens is people turn on their phones or they what they do is they create a download. And then they just put it online and so the movie has been pirated. By the way, this is common with movies. Movies get pirated and typically movie companies have to hire these anti piracy firms to take those pirated sites down. But let's talk about look, if some guy doesn't have any money and he's like, I can't afford to pay for the movie. And he finds it free. I'm not begrudging that guy. I'm not upset about it. But what I do want to say is that by and large, we don't like it. And we'll tell you really why. It has to do more with our business model. Right, our business plan. And this also, you know, I'm getting a lot of emails about people wanting to do screenings for large people and for large groups of people. And so that too is a problem. Why? Because you buy a DVD for 29 bucks or however much it is. And then you have a thousand people go in there and watch it. So the problem is that if this goes on and on and on, we do not make our money back. We can make movies. We can't make movies, which we continue to do. So these movies are very see a lot of documentaries are not that much to make, but ours are unique. Well, we spend money on them because we make them theatrical. We make them so that it's a real movie. This is not a case where we interview four people and that's the movie. Right. So I think what Debbie's getting out is this, look, we have no objection to people with their family or calling some friends do beat by all means. We're not talking about that. We're talking about things like, well, this is some of your friends in the Rio Grande valley when they learned about the virtual premiere, they literally set up a convention center where a thousand people were going to come in basically it went to buy one ticket and a thousand people watching the movie for

How KT McFarland Became the Person She Is Today
"KT McFarland's with me today. I can't been waiting for this one for a while. Got to run into her cpac with the crazy part about it is through all of our travels. We have been on TV together multiple times on interviews, but never in the same place. It seems like at the same time, especially with the last few years going. And so it was so good to be in the same room, not on the same convention center, but there with you in Orlando. It is great to have you on the podcast today. Well, I agree. I mean, I feel like I really know you well because I've been on television with you. We've talked to each other, but we've never actually met in person. And so here we are yet again, not in person, but it's good to be with you. It is. But it works out, great. Well, you know, one of the things is and especially the way life goes these days is we all have our backgrounds and where we come from. And people see us and make judgments, basically, you know, we're on TV or we're on the interviews, one podcast that was kind of like, one of the things I love to do with this podcast has been great to be able to do is sort of people see how we became, you know, you or how you became me and it gives people that background so that when they see you, they say, hey, I know where she came from. I know what was going on. So tell us a little bit about how you became you in a lot of sense. Gosh, that's so nice. Well, I started out as a freshman in college in 1969. I was from Madison, Wisconsin from a working class family, but I got a scholarship to go to George Washington University. But I needed a job. So I was a really fast typist. And through a series of accidents, got a job as the nighttime secretary in The White House situation, freshman in college. And I was working for Henry Kissinger in the Nixon administration. So I went to college during the day, majored in Chinese Chinese studies, wrote my bicycle, went to The White House situation room every afternoon, and then typed the first draft from what was then called the president's daily brief and is still called the president's daily brief. And that was the classified items briefing items that would be on the president of the United States is desk in the Oval Office every morning at 7 a.m.. So I typed the rough draft at night, somebody finished it off in the morning. And I did that all through college, through part of graduate school. And all of a sudden I got promoted after chain. And I was Henry Kissinger's research assistant. At a very young age, and so saw firsthand to some of the most extraordinary periods of American foreign policy. It was the opening to China, the end of the Vietnam War, the Paris peace accords. The detente with the Soviet Union, Middle East peace negotiations. So as a very young person in my late teens, early 20s, was exposed to people and events.
Las Vegas Hotels, Casinos Comply With Strict Mask Mandates
"And life is good. We're off to Las Vegas. I may have to make a little detour and go to the slot machine on the way to the broadcast position tomorrow, or on the way back. I'm not a big gambler, but I like my wheel of fortune a little bit. So maybe my fortunes will maybe fortune will be kind to me tomorrow. By the way, I found out strict mandate in Las Vegas for masks. There's nobody on the casino floor nobody at the shot show without a mascot. They've given dispensation to those of us who are broadcasters while we're on the air, but that's about it. I wondered how that was going to fly with thousands of gun owners. And shooters and outdoorsmen and women having to wear a mask on the floor of the sands expo and convention center, but I am told by my spies on the ground, oh yeah, mask mandate is in place and it is enforced. Interesting.
Rep. Guy Reschenthaler Describes the 'Little Guys' at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES)
"All right, what was it like to be back at a convention center with actually people again? I felt like things were normal again. Now people are of course running around terrified wearing masks, but it was nice to be back in the what I would perceive as the real world, but it's interesting because if you remember before the CES show started, the big companies, Google, for example, they pulled out. Well, it's interesting that the big companies were pulling out of CES. Well, the smaller startup companies did not want to. And there's a good reason for that. It's because those small businesses that the entrepreneurs, they actually pose a big threat to Google Amazon and the others. So additionally, those small startups, that is sometimes 50 to 60% of their yearly revenue that they're getting from contacts they make at CES. It's really a largely a business development show. So you can see CES as a microcosm for just the economy with COVID, where the big players, the amazons, googles, you name it. They are in favor of the perpetual lockdowns. And. The keeping the pandemic stretched out as long as possible because it's stifling competition. Whereas these little guys, just like little businesses, need to go back to business as normal so they can grow their business. They can expand their market share, et cetera. So I took it as a microcosm for the entire for the entire

"convention center" Discussed on KCRW
"At the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Good morning again first I want to thank you, Phillipe Department of Public Health Silly fighting Cove it for organizing this clinic Every weekend, the city gave Billy Fighting Cove it thousands of vaccine doses to administer. But the logistical strength that had made the startup seems so attractive to the city started to falter fast. For one thing, Billy fighting Covad reorganized as a for profit and abruptly stopped testing. Michael Brown had been working with them to do testing on Martin Luther King Day. He says Erosion told his group that testing just wasn't important anymore. The statement he made was very clear. I don't believe the testing. Is relevant anymore. People don't follow the instructions. People don't do what they're supposed to do so and all it does not put his paws panic. Things weren't going smoothly at the convention center, either.

Um, in a plastic bag with the CDC vaccination record card. Now, after the city has cut ties, Health Commissioner Tom Farley is on the defensive. All people can understand why there's on the surface.

"convention center" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"A convention center in Detroit, Michigan, election officials and volunteers gathered to count ballots. Candace Foreman of the Detroit newsroom out liar media was an election volunteer. Something she's done with her family. Since she was a little girl. I have been a part of this process many times over, and I have never in all of my day seeing anything. That sounded like that, or looked like that, Candace. His job was to signing people called Vote challengers, Democrat Republican and nonpartisan volunteers who are allowed to watch the process and call out issues with any particular ballot. So Tuesday, Actually, things were Relatively normal when I arrived on Wednesday It was like walking into a completely different space back. Uh, the door. You never told people to sign out. So you don't know how many are in there that you have. Candice was looking at a room full of hundreds of people, and she knew that only a certain number of challenges were allowed in. Challengers off. Both groups have a purpose, but their purpose is not to be disruptive of the process.
