Fresh update on "dallas" discussed on Mark Levin
"I don't know why. It makes me feel like you make me feel like. Can you imagine a radio station a hundred years old WABC is a hundred years old. So as our Richmond of Philly, a hundred years old, you know when the radio system started. The federal government wanted to have as much of the country covered as possible. So you have a relative handful of a.m. stations. That are considered these these historic these first of stations. And they're all over the country. Or they're in a strategic place in various parts of the country. In these stations are the oldest stations in the country, some of them are a hundred years old. Some of them not quite a hundred, but pretty old. But WABC is one of them, a Richmond, excuse me, our filling in Rochester, New York, is another one. It's a great affiliate. In Dallas, that's another one. There's a station in Albany that's won, but you can go around the country, Detroit. Our affiliate there and some of the others. And this is because a hundred years ago, 80 years ago, they wanted to make sure, particularly in cases of potential emergency, that the word can get out. Now we have God knows how many radio stations and even more radio programs, the competition is enormous. Its enormous so when a station succeeds, or when its lineup are hosts succeed, it's a big deal. I mean, in New York alone, I have over 50 stations
Fresh update on "dallas" discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"In the last segment, I talked about how the Supreme Court might be taking the view that one can't do very much about the past election, but the court might take steps to tighten up the process, bring it more in line with the constitution for the 2024 election. But I think that we shouldn't take the view that 2020 is in the rearview mirror and that somehow this is something that we need to quote move on from. Yes, in the end, we do have to move on, but I think we don't want to move on without some reckoning of what happened in 2020. And I came to this view really not initially, but after I did all the work I did both to do the movie 2000 meals and the accompanying book, which by the way comes out at the end of August, you can pre order it now on Amazon, it's called well. You guessed it. 2000 meals, but there's a little tag that says the full story why because there's going to be more in the book than there was in the movie. Now, initially when I began work, went through the vote, Debbie and I did. I took the view that look, we want to make a movie that's going to tell the truth, about 2020, and we want to try to fix things in the future, but it never crossed my mind that we want to do anything about 2020 itself. And yet, the more I dug into it, the more I realized, well, if a grievous injustice has been done, then you can't simply quote move on. Think about I mentioned this example other times the Tour de France. If Lance Armstrong cheated 7 or 8 times to win, she did during the Olympics. Well, I mean, don't you take away the guy's medals? You just say, let's fix the Tour de France for the next round, so it doesn't happen again, let line scores have his glory. No, we want to deprive him of the fruit of the cheating. Now, people say, well, dinesh, this is what are you saying? I mean, this is kind of unprecedented elections can't be overturned later after the election's already occurred. And the answer is, well, they actually can. And they actually have been. Now, we haven't seen a presidential election overturned I admit. But I want to talk briefly about what happened in North Carolina in 2018. This is congressional district 9 in North Carolina. And a guy named Mark Harris, a Republican, was running against Dan mccready Democrat. And Harris won, but he won very narrowly, though it just won by a kind of re edged out Dan mccready, and it turns out that the margin of victory was provided by the absentee ballots by the mail in ballots. Now, Mark Harris, who was a good guy and a decent guy in a pastor, had hired another guy on named mccray Dallas. To work to be his man in bladen county, which is part of his district, that district in the 9th district in North Carolina, but McRae Dallas as it turns out was a kind of a shy star. McRae Dallas was an illegal ballot trafficker. In fact, he was doing the exact same thing that we describe in 2000 meals. In fact, he sort of, I won't say invented it, but he sort of perfected it. Now, you may think, wow, wait a minute. We're talking about voter fraud for the Republican. Yes, but as often happens, you know, by and large, when you find a corrupt Republican, you got to scratch them, you usually find that the guy was a Democrat. And so it was in this case. I'm a Cray Dallas, used to work for a kind of black pack, a group called the bladen county improvement association. This was an African American quote, get out the vote, operation, but get out the vote in their case, man, get out the mules. So they were running a kind of dubious and corrupt operation, McRae Dallas was working for them. He learned the tricks of the trade, but then he got into a fight with them. And so they parted ways of super great doubtless and a huff goes well. I'm going to go off of my services to the Republicans. And so he did. So yes, we are talking about voter fraud that benefited a Republican candidate, but let's remember Mark Harris did not know that McRae Dallas was pulling this kind of trickery. He just had heard that McRae Dallas is kind of he knows how to get out the vote. And so he hired him in the confidence that this guy would deliver for him and he sure to deliver it, but little did Mark Harris know that McRae Dallas was like dang people to go door to door paying people to get their absentee
Fresh update on "dallas" discussed on ESPN FC

How the Supreme Court Won the Election for Donald Trump
"Now, governor Tate raised, we got a minute left. I want to cover the gun control case. New York's law was struck down. I do not believe Mississippi is one of the 6 other states that had discretion vested in bureaucrats as to whether or not to issue a carry pyramid in the event of someone concerned about their safety. What was your reaction to that decision by the Supreme Court? It's another win for the Second Amendment is another win for the United States Constitution. And that's one of the things that when the former president was elected in 2016, he put people only United States Supreme Court as you'll recall, that was a major issue in that campaign. Decided it. And won him the election, do you agree with me on that? I think that's exactly right. And the president did exactly what he said it was going to do. And what the American people said that they wanted him to do. And that is the appointed people to the court that can read the constitution and they can give the rights back to the people. And to our, in our case and the Dallas case to allow for the elected representatives to allow democracy to work in the case of abortions and other areas. And so I thought it was a great win for and I'm hoping today that the states get another great win in the EPA case because they don't have the authority to regulate and Congress ought to do its job, not EPA, make up rules.
Actor Nick Searcy Joins Dinesh to Talk About His Latest Film
"Guys, I'm happy to welcome back to the podcast award winning actor and producer Nick sir C you know him for his role in best picture winner, the shape of water. He's been in the Oscar nominated Moneyball and castaway and fried green tomatoes and runaway jury. He's also the course played the costarring role on the hit TV series, the FX series called justified, and he teamed up with filmmaker Chris burgard to make a terrific film about January 6th called capital punishment. We're gonna talk about that. Hey Nick, welcome to the podcast. Thanks for coming on. You are just telling me that you have your in a film that daily wire has just released. It's a western tell us about that one. Yeah, it's a western called terror on the Prairie, and I play the title role. I'm the terror. And that's kind of why I still look like Gabby Hayes a little bit. It's a real real throwback western and just a terrific experience, a great people with Gina Carano and Dallas Sonya and the daily wire people. It was great to make a movie with the where for once I wasn't outnumbered being a conservative on the set. And I know you're saying that the kind of old style western that we thought was extinct that Hollywood won't go near anymore. It's been revived in a kind of a new form. Tell us a little bit about how does this compare to the classic westerns with Gregory Peck and Clint Eastwood and so on. Well, it's really more of a throwback to the peckinpah westerns of the 70s. It's a little bit more like wild bunch than it is like the searchers because it's pretty bloody. There's quite a few crimes, let's say, in the movie and it's unflinching. And so I would say it's probably an R rated for violence type of
Dr. Ryan Cole on Monkeypox and What It Means for All of Us
"Doctor Cole tell us, what is monkeypox? What is the threat that it poses to most Americans? Monkeypox is a orthopoxvirus. It's in it's an epox family camelpox cowpox, monkey pox, smallpox is the one people think of. So again, this is a fear campaign trying to make everybody afraid. They modeled this at the nuclear threat initiative, which has founded and co owned by the cofounder of Facebook. Just like they projected COVID with event two O one, monkeypox is we've known about it since 1958. There's two strains West Africa strain and a Central African strain. The West Africa strain is what circulating right now. If you don't engage in homosexual sex, your risk of monkeypox is about zero. So it spread at a rave in the Canary Islands off Portugal and some big raves in Europe. It's really the gay bisexual population that it's sticking to. It is not very transmissible. It is very treatable. There was actually a patient in Dallas that had it last year. We get outbreaks of monkeypox around the world every year. They're just scare mongering with it. And it's really staying in that gay homosexual bisexual population. And it's not aerosolized virus. Is this strange slightly different from earlier strains, the 2018 strain that went around, Singapore, Israel, UK. It has about 50 mutations, which was highly unusual. We know Wuhan was actually synthesizing monkeypox so they could come up with a test for monkeypox, the lab in Wuhan, ironically. But monkeypox is low risk. And this is the West Africa strain. This is the less deadly strain. The irony too is that it looks a lot like chickenpox and shingles, which obviously there are a lot of people getting chickenpox and shingles because of their immune suppression from their COVID

Police in the Dallas Area Kill a Gunman Who Entered a Summer Camp
"I want to talk a little bit about a story out of Dunkin VO Texas and follow my Texans out there if you live in a Dallas Fort Worth area. You know exactly where darker field is at, you know, where dark field DeSoto, all of these heavily populated black schools that are very successful, very successful in sports, there's some of the biggest schools in the state of Texas excel in academics. There's issues there like in any other school. But these are very big prominent schools in Dallas, Texas. Now duncanville, you ain't gonna hear this song. Nobody gonna talk about this, y'all, I already predicted. Maybe I am the Oracle. I will predict. That you ain't gonna see, nobody talking about this extensively on the mainstream news. In duncanville, I think at Dunkin field high school, they had a summer camp. And there was an idiot whom they will not name 'cause he's black. They don't even want to give his identity 'cause he's black. I would argue that he's black. I don't really know what color he is, but every time anytime you see it, he's a white man, they go white man white supremacists. But when he's a black man, they don't know what color it is. He's unidentified. And they called him a man. So if you're a man, you're 18, when you're 18, you can be identified. If you're not 18, you're youth, or you're a young person, you're a minor. They can not identify you. But they call them a man, unknown man. Comes up to the school. I don't know why he picked duncanville. Showed up. Pulled up in the lobby. Thought he was going to pull her Yuval. You know who's waiting for him in the lobby? Staff member with a gun. Staff member commences to get in a shootout with the guy in the lobby. He runs out of the lobby. He tries to go into, I believe, a big gymnasium, or another portion of the school, and you know what? He couldn't get in. Why couldn't get him, mister Tatum? 'cause the doors are locked. Well, he's still able to force entry in the door, he should be able to kick the door in. You can't. The doors at the school are designed to be impenetrable. Unless you have breaching tools or key and it does look like he had a key. But you know who had a key to his soul, the police officers. So they showed up and he got smoked.
The NEW Salem Star Morgan Zegers on Her Fight Against Socialism
"And it's none other than Morgan zagers of young Americans against socialism, Morgan. Thank you for popping by. Thank you for making the time. All right, so congratulations are in order on Friday, an hour before you arrived. You signed your contract with us with Salem so you are the freshest member of the Salem faculty and the newest podcaster. Yeah, I mean, it's really an honor. I've been having a personal podcast for the last year talking about politics, current events, and culture, specifically from a young conservative woman's perspective. So I'm really thankful that Salem would want me to join in. I was super excited. You are high energy social media individual, but you also do heavy stuff like your analysis of the federalist papers. We're going to talk about all of that. I don't know waste time with your story because I always ask you to tell it when you come on this show before. So in a nutshell, you met somebody at college. She was a communist kind of blew your mind. What do I say to a communist who's an American living in America at college? That's how you decided to better your understanding of how to communicate the evils of this ideology. Tell us, I want to ask you first a personal question. How long have you been doing this? So when you decide to be a young American against socialism, how many years ago? I started the organization in 2019. And I have been working for the last few years to fundraise and build a reputation and an audience around this concept of interviewing survivors of communism and socialism. And I'm really excited because actually June 12th was the release of our first episode that was long form. I've been doing a lot of gorilla style social media tactics where I've been doing selfie videos with survivors and whatever I could really with my capabilities, but we finally film in Dallas in a very professional studio surrounded by historic artifacts long, one to two hour conversations with people from around the world. So it's really exciting and that's on a channel called the freedom records every week as a new
What Alex Stein Saw at the 'Drag Your Kids to Pride' Event in Dallas
"Viral video over the last couple of days. We covered extensively yesterday of the drag show for kids in Dallas, Texas, there's one man who actually went to the or tried to go to intervene and be an adult and do what was actually necessary. That's Alex Stein number 99. I think I got that right. He's hilarious. Alex, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, your alleged, oh my gosh, you're calling me 99. I feel like I made it, you know, the man in the myth the legend Charlie, thank you for having me on. I really appreciate it. Your reputation precedes you. The thing when you went to the school board meeting in Dallas is one of the funniest things I've seen in a very long time. And so you went to this drag show, they didn't let you in, so they're obviously, I don't know, homophobic or something, like walk us through this. Well, listen, this is the thing about this drive show. And you know, in our culture right now, they're doing the drag queen story time at the public library. Now, that's disgusting. That's terrible, Charlie. But at least that's out in the open. What this was, this is more sinister than that because they had a clear window and once they did it, they put paper over the window. So they didn't want people in there. And obviously we did get some major provocateurs, Taylor Hansen got in, although Isabel O'Reilly, a few people did get in that where I was in a group with. But they immediately recognized me and didn't let me in. But what I'm saying is Charlie, this had the vibe of when you're in college and the drug dealer gives you the first drug. The first drug is always free and the drug culture, you know? It's like your first hit, like, come to a bar, but the reason why it was so sinister is they were attacking children. Now, listen, if you're gay, you're trans you're drag queen, whatever, go do that in your own time. You don't need to involve little children. So what this was is, this was pure indoctrination, Charlie. And this was an attack on these children, and it gave me the vibrational energy that they were almost feasting on the purity and vulnerability of these children, and they were loving it. Like, you know, like a vampire, like a Dracula almost.
Democrats Want Power Over Your Protection
"We talked about abortion. That's what they're pushing. We talk about gun laws and violating your Second Amendment rights. That's what they're pushing. There's nobody on Planet Earth that want to see kids get killed. I don't care what nobody say. It's a matter of principle, right? Some parties want power, some parties want with the people want. And the Democrat party want power. They want control over you. Or they just completely stupid. One of the two is happening here. More so do Republicans are saying we need to preserve your Second Amendment rights. Because just like the LGBTQ slippery slope, that's what the Second Amendment has a slippery slope too. Once they start federalizing laws and restrictions on your constitutional rights, they don't undo them. And I know for a fact that they want you to be unarmed. They don't want you to have a gun. And they want to rely on the police officers in the state, and then they tell you to defund the police. So in actuality, they want you to rely on a federal police. Because they want you to defund the police, they want to humiliate police they want them to quit, they want them to be incompetent and they want the numbers to show that police aren't helping a curb in any crime crime is going out of control. All local police can't handle it. We need to bring in federal police. This what they want, ladies and gentlemen, they want you to be unarmed.
How Social Media Censors Conservative Thought
"And right before the break, Carol, we were talking about it and you were explaining what we should do about censorship and how that all works within the scope of the government, partnering with social media. We talked about the cloud service and how they've knocked off parlor. But I'll let you finish your thought on social media censorship. So go ahead and take it away. Yeah, I think this is something where, you know, conservatives have been on the defensive here. You know, people will say, oh, it's all in your head. It's not really happening, but we actually have the data to show that this is happening and it's happening at a grand scale. So the media research center found that Twitter and Facebook sensor Republican members of Congress at a rate of 53 to one compared to Democrat members of Congress. You have a recent study coming out of NC state that says Google sends two thirds of conservative or Republican candidates, political messages to your spam compared to Democrats. So, you know, these are just two instances, and I can go on and on and on, you know, the Hunter Biden laptop story, the Wuhan lab leak, that was censored, so there's so many, not just anecdotal instances, but now we're actually able to say that this matters when it comes to the data. We can put ratios to this stuff, Google, search visibility for breitbart shrank, 99% from 2016 election year to the 2020 election year. Facebook created two internal tools that suppress very conservative media on its platform, the list goes on and on and on. So when people say this is all in conservative heads, that thought in and of itself is all in their head.
Elon Musk Threatens to Walk Away From Twitter Deal
"Kara, first of all, I got some breaking news that came to me in my ear before we joined and I want to talk about this. Elon Musk and Twitter. Now we all know that Elon Musk was scheduled to acquire Twitter, but now with the bot situation, the pretty much what happened is that there have been deceitful. They claim that it was worth more than what it really is because bots do not count for success and it does not count for involvement and engagement. So he may walk away from this. Can you talk a little bit about this and give us your thoughts on Elon Musk potentially walking away from the Twitter deal? Yeah, there are a couple of schools of thoughts here. Well, one of them thinks that, okay, maybe Elon is just trying to get himself more favorable terms for this deal. Oh, he is a businessman after all. The richest man in the world doesn't become rich by spending all his money. So there is an idea that, okay, he might be trying to negotiate for a better deal. And he actually might still be committed fully to the acquisition. He said as much a few weeks ago when all of this consternation about Twitter's what they're actually saying about their bot levels are started roiling around. This seems to be the most serious step that he's taken in order to potentially extricate himself from the acquisition. You know, lawyers sending letters around, it could be sort of gamesmanship, but it also could be very serious. And what I think is really interesting in this regard is more breaking news. The attorney general from Texas Ken Paxton, he basically said that if this is true, then we are going to take it to Twitter and he filed what's basically looking at Texas deceptive trade practices act to protect the Texan consumer. So he's taking what Elon is saying very seriously in his statement. He targeting Twitter. He basically said, they said it was about 5% in their public documents, but it might be as much as 20%. So it looks like Elon is creating a little bit of a snowball effect when it comes to Twitter's woes. So, you know, I've heard the Elon Musk take over touted as the free market solution, you know, this is why tech companies don't have to be reined in because we've got billionaires, you know, waiting to buy these platforms. Not true. Whatsoever. Look how difficult this has been. So in my estimation, it's a little naive to think that we're going to have white knights riding out of the woodwork to save us conservatives from censorship and the abuses these big tech companies are visiting upon the American people. And I don't think it's a replicable strategy. I hope Elon prevails, but it's looking really sticky at this point.
How Librals Force the Gay Agenda on Teens
"I know people probably maybe upset not y'all. I mean, some of y'all are smart. But most of you are smart, they're listening to me. But some people may get upset that the first time listening to people that are indoctrinated by liberal agenda may be upset with what I said about the LGBTQ community about the gay stuff going way too far. Listen, it's not that you have to dislike anybody. I would never hurt anybody. I would never harm anybody. It's just through you and stay in your lane. My problem is that they're now funneling this ideology onto the world stage. You got teams putting gay flags everywhere. You got all of these things. You've seen an increased Bill Maher said it on his show. You've seen an increase in people identifying the LGBTQ community. How in the world is that possible about 20 to the charts by 2050 something? Everybody's going to identify as gay. How is that possible?
Dallas 'Drag Your Kids to Pride' Event Sparks Outrage
"So in Dallas Texas, some of you guys may have heard of this, there's a drag king, it's called the drag the kids to pride a show at the mister mister's bar, which is a gay bar, and the venue is the regular bar is considered to be a champagne drag brunch where they have men dressed like women or no, let me say this impersonating women impersonating sexuality of women and dancing like sluts in front of other adults. But this time they want to bring kids and get the kids involved. So this 21 and over bar that is reserved for adult behavior, they now held an event called drag the kids to pride where they now are allowing children and these kids look like they have to be 11, 12, maybe even younger than that. They're allowing them to be in this bar, the parents are there, and they have these men, these grown tail men with the stuff hanging out, weren't thongs, dancing for these children, and these children are giving them money. They're putting money in their thongs. And parents thought that this was okay.
Charlie Dissects Horrific 'Drag Your Kids to Pride' Event in Dallas
"Happening in Dallas, Texas, while we were doing something very constructive and I believe something that was virtuous or at least attempting to be very virtuous, which was something else in Dallas, Texas that has gone completely viral. Is worthy of our examination. In Dallas, Texas, this is now gone completely viral. There was an event. It was called the Dallas drag your kids to pride event, which has gone viral because it showed drag queens. With young children, as the young kids in the front row were handing the money to the drag queens. Behind the drag queens was a neon big sign that said it won't lick itself. There was another neon sign. I'm actually struggling to remember what the other neon signs said, but it's just as disgusting. Now there were kids as young as 5 or 6 or 7 years old in the front row, watching these drag queens perform, giving them money. Now it bears repeating, this was in Dallas, Texas, where parents were taking their 5 6 and 7 year olds to this drag bar with a neon sign that said it's not going to lick itself. Now, this has gone completely viral, and in fact, I'm very glad it has gone viral because even some people that are more moderate on these issues have decided to speak out and say this is reprehensible. This is awful. Now, this is not an Austin Texas. This is in Dallas.

Tell us who she really was and because a lot of misinformation about her attitude to abortion after the decision. So who is Jane roe? Norma mccorvey, who I could say is a personal friend of mine. I stated her home in Dallas. She stayed at my home in New York. Father Frank actually brought her into the Catholic Church. In fact, Norma mccorvey never had an abortion. What? No, never. In fact, she was taken advantage of basically. She was basically homeless. She already had two babies at a wedlock that her family, one was for adoption, her mother was raising one. And over a pizza lunch, she signed for Sarah waiting to know the dotted line. She got will help you take care of your pregnancy. She signs on the dotted line. Do you think she spent one day in court? Not one day. Never heard from Sarah really. And then the day, roe V wade's decided. Do you think your lawyer would pick up the phone and say we won Norma? You know how she found out when she opened her door that morning and picked up the Dallas morning paper. So I don't understand if she hadn't had an abortion, but she wasn't involved in the hearings. What was her utility to the industry of death? Why did they need her? Well, they were looking actually, you know, to find someone like her, not well educated and kind of desperate situation who just would be used like a puppet. And in fact, the companion case that day, the Doe of dovey Bolden, father Frank and I know her too. Both ladies are Sandra kino. Same thing. She was her case was coming up through Georgia, while enormous was coming up through Texas. And Sandra signed on the dotted line thinking, she never two children back out of foster care. It was her mother who wanted her to put this child. And when Sandra found out, she left Georgia to Oklahoma to give birth to that

"But now you've seen people listen their houses for to me a little ridiculous price and they're not selling as quickly so from a strategy standpoint. When someone's selling their home what are you what. What's your guidance. I mean we work for them right. And i think that you know as a kid. I was really into collecting baseball cards. And i would go. And maybe pull. Ken griffey junior rookie card out of it. And let's say it was worth one hundred dollars and my dad would tommy. It's actually worth what someone's a loan to pay right. So i think on paper i. It's really good for the ego and for the soul but the irony is most sellers or buyers right so when you wanna go overprice your house and then you want to get a deal buying i. It's just that crossroads of logic lunacy and so you know maybe it makes the buyer feel good right now that they're getting you know two to three percent off of the list price but again there's factors that we don't really have much control over right now and i think that's a rarity to be a seasoned. You know expert in this field. You have people that. Watch the news or read the paper or get on a real estate appliqued zillow or whatever and they think their houses worth more than it is right but then there's also for the first time ever those unicorn situations or someone's like oh my gosh i love your street name and your backyard has a wind chime. It's perfect will pay. Its we've seen that happen and then when it happens that sets the cops to a higher number right because it sells for price per square foot. You haven't seen in all of a sudden everyone wants to chase that price per square foot so we've seen it happen but i think for the first time ever. Our advice is just that you know. And i think for the first time ever to people will go lists the property as you just never know. I think you're spot on on a lot of things here. And and of course. Housing economies all economies are created extremely complex. Factors that that all all come together but but the reality is and you can correct me on this. We're seeing more people put more cash on the line. More real money may be getting out of equities getting into their home. And so the the prices that i think we're see now are harder and more resilient than a lot of people may be hope they will be. Who are who are buyers at this point in time and whatever inflationary pressures there might be in the broader economy or supply chain issues. There might be which play a factor. I tend to think that Rogers exactly right that. This is not Any kind of bubble in that you probably are going to pay more for your house in dallas texas. Going forward i mean. Is that a fair summary of where you're going. Yeah and then on top of that to talk about taking money out of the market and you know people want a tangible investment and i think that the conversation that still can is continued to be had is when is the stock market can potentially level off and if you can take cash out and not rely on. I don't do stocks. Because i don't know the people that are running the company's right and i want to be able to trust where my money is at and i think people are kind of taking that approach especially the ones that made a lot of money and i think that there's so much stuff behind the scenes now with Crypto currency and with the stock market. That eventually someone's going to take a step back and be like what what what that doesn't make sense. So real estate right were vince. Real estate is gold right even if it if it dips it's always gonna come back especially in place like dallas so i think people like that i also think people from an investment standpoint love the short term rental aspect and being little kind of hotel tycoons. And that's happening. You know in in bulk as well. So yeah i i really. I think when people think of it that way. It's a logical time to purchase a home And i i don't think emotions are really dictating. You know the outcome anymore. How significant a role has low mortgage rates. Played in this i. It's been great right but again people are going to find a way to go. And do it and i think that when you think about an interest rate under three percent historically that's an all time low but historically a six percent interest rate is still really really low so i think lifestyle changes are bound to happen right. It's like you can't go and live this extravagant life in dallas and spend all your money and then still go have a down payment for home. You have to make modifications and we're in the city of thirty thousand dollar millionaires right. So i think that'll be interesting to see what kind of trends happened. Outside of the world real estate. But i'm sure it's all part of it so yeah i think interest rates have been a massive massive help. Well i definitely want to get into commercial real estate here. But i want to ask one more question about the housing market that gets into affordability matter and i think this is. It's really crucial that we figure out a way within our society within our economy to make sure that people who need housing get quality housing that they can build equity and i just tend to think that that is absolutely central to the american project. One thing that we are seeing rodgers. And i'm sort of interested in your take on this is Speaking of the market speaking of hedge funds speaking of kind of investing. That isn't always so easy to sort out. We are seeing a lot of wall street. Firms heavy capitalized firms purchase single family homes. And then get into this short term rental or long term rental market. Are you seeing that or you. Seen it have any effect on the local market. Yeah big time know. But again i think that buying it for short term rentals is probably not as wise as buying it just as a long term investment because we look new orleans is a good case study. The french quarter got murdered by people. The french quarter hotels got murdered by people doing short term rentals and then they put a ban on it right so i. I do think that there's a little bit but it's more risky. It's riskier purchasing properties with the intention for an airbnb or short term of the rpo because literally neighborhood association or a new restriction. Could be put in place to go and ban it. But still you own the dirt and i think people appreciate that i think over pain now is a good deal later on down the road and the same thing for commercial but we're we're seeing prices now dallas especially back you know ten or twelve years ago. We were in the same indexes as blue collar cities for appreciation right which gay people like a feel good but they never. We were never in that miami vegas. La you know new york city roller coaster. And we're still not. And i think people appreciate that because again just the basic economics of supply and demand are here to stay So yeah again over right now you still win the deal and on the commercial side to buy a three or four cap you still.

"That's not that's not normal but it's probably because people still wanted to be where they thought they were going to be for the last four or five years and if you realistically look at statistics of real estate especially residential where. You're not locked into something other than a mortgage. You're probably not gonna live there more than three to five years right and then you start looking at the statistics deeper where normally two thousand square foot for every child. You know if it's your first home with your spouse or your partner you might not need five thousand square feet right. And i think that that started kind of change the trends in in general where people could get a deal but i think that the past seventeen eighteen months a deal is a deal that you want right and i don't think people are used to that here Where you saw sellers are more educated than ever before because of realtors and also because of the news that they were actually pricing their homes. Competitively some of them even so they would price it undervalue knowing that they'd get it was like a cadillac. You know so. There's deals to be had but the thing. The thing that i've seen now is people that had homes maybe six or seven thousand square feet. That thought they could double their money in two or three years. That have committed to something else. Maybe there's a way to get a deal on something like that but you know it's still all relative and eventually the question is where these people going to keep going. You know like if you sell your house maybe you can buy. But some of these people on the flip side that maybe you're in a generational home. They've been there for forty or fifty years might not be able to pay their property taxes because their home values gone up so much and they're locked into eight hundred bucks a year and it goes at three grand a year. I think that's gonna be a problem. But again you know it kind of just takes care of itself. And the gentrification affect dfw is moving all four directions. Would you've never seen in real estate anywhere. That's that's really interesting. How help put dallas in kind of perspective. I mean we're how hot are we relative to everybody else. I mean are we we in the middle of pack or we way ahead. I don't wanna use the term hot. I think it's extremely safe. Okay and i think the thing about dallas especially. If you're from here it always was a hard sell right like why would you come. Visit taos other than sports concert and good food. Good booze i mean. It's a it's a city that people like to be home at. And i think once you get past that if you think about the most volatile markets it's normally vegas arizona miami los angeles these cities chicago that are tourist cities right and that means there's probably a lot of transition there. Someone goes to dc. They lived there for two three years and they peace out they moved to. La doesn't work for them. They leave right. they want. It's like and then there's douse or dallas is right in the middle of the country. It's a relatively affordable city. And i think when people can't just press either not to give up button or it's more like the grow up button. This place becomes home. And i think because of that. We have stability now for the next thirty or forty years. What about within our state. Compared to austin houston san antonio those types of markets. I think this is a melting pot. And i think people don't realize it especially the ones that have been here their whole lives dallas has it. It's got a it's culture and it's got an edge in dallas to me is more like a new york city or london versus a houston or austin. And i think the beauty of dallas is your. You could beat an airport in chicago and see someone to be like. I don't know if they look like a la personal chicago. Dallas doesn't have an identity in a really healthy way. And i think because of that people like the fact that this isn't just a straight up texas town and if they need that they can go to fort worth right because it's obviously got some cliches to it so yeah. I think that the intention that we've seen from our city council and our mayors and our leaders has really led to something really really special that most people don't even know that we have now. I really appreciate you. Say that. Because i think it does touch on a lot of What i find appealing about dallas. As i as i travel around the country and that is it is hard to find a place that a is you know Relatively affordable be has a lot of economic opportunity. And see where you can just kind of get into the mix pretty quickly as a person and not feel like you have to adopt whatever the sort of defining culture of the city is. And i don't want to name names austin but There are places where it's it's not affordable opportunity is a little tricky europe and there is a kind of definition to who you need to be That said i wonder how you hang onto that. If you're seeing nineteen percent year over year increases in prices respond. Yeah that's the invitation. We've got the bandwidth okay. Great like an again. It just goes back. From an infrastructural standpoint dow's literally can grow all four directions. Austin runs north and south right. And if you want an affordable housing austin you need to go closer to the hilton new braunfels right here. You can literally go west. You can now go south. You can go east. Everyone's been going north. Which is no longer super affordable. But if we're going to continue growing by the time we have grandchildren. Dfw go to waco into tyler texas so again you know. It's it's you're losing a little bit of the convenience factor right especially people are still working downtown. They're working in uptown. You know if you go twenty miles away. That's a hike but again it's all relative and i think that that's what's unique about our city is that it's like. It's sim city in real life right manhattan. You're on an island. You literally can't build anymore los angeles. You can kind of keep doing it but it's going to be miserable. Dallas has potential to be the biggest city in the country. And it's not going to be a mess an interesting thing. He stated earlier. That i wanted to ask because i think it's relatable to to a lot of people you talked about people price in their homes lower to get in a sort of a bidding war and i've also seen people personally this in my own relationships begin to price things higher rudy and i used to be neighbors in the neighborhood in north west. Alice where i used to live in rudy still lives. There has been a boom. But now you've seen people listen their houses for to me a little ridiculous price and they're not selling as quickly so from a strategy standpoint. When someone's selling.

"Can bring water and said it next to your bed you know you have to attend an appointment. Or you lose your housing. I mean all of these overly paternalistic types of programs while they're well intentioned and they're designed to try to help provide structured individuals. What would they fail to do. Is really account for the importance of Being an independent adult and recognizing you're an individual's own agency in making decisions for their life. So there's been a mismatch in some of the solutions that we've offered in the past and we've been working really hard over the last twenty five years in particular to try to reverse that using data Really trying to to understand the lived experience of those individuals who have have been homeless and letting that shape better policies and programming and approaches. And that's where we're starting to see real results across the country. The the challenge and i think dallas is In a very interesting at a very interesting moment is ken. We make that pivot fast enough before some of those other forces in the market becomes so overwhelming that that is hard to dig ourselves out of out of a whole look. Let me hop in there. Because i think you'll put diplomatically. What i'll put a little more bluntly and one of the reasons that i think you're in dallas is because we have a lot of different diverse groups many with very good intentions. Let's just say all with good intentions that frankly don't always do a very good job a of working together or be of delivering the kinds of services in the kinds of ways that they need to be delivered to help people who are homeless In in a cohesive way and sometimes they actually work at cross purposes And and so one group is doing one thing and one group is doing another thing of the cut. Cancel each other out and You're sort of supposed to help straighten all that out. Am i understanding that. Yeah that's correct. Okay so the approach that we've come to realize As a very viable solution to homelessness is twofold so the first is we have to start investing and rehousing solutions that this idea of taking someone in crisis keeping them in crisis and trying to fix them is not working and the reason. It's not working. Is that all those services that help support you. While you're in crisis you have to go back to crisis to get them so the the rehousing solutions that we've had to bring to bear include moving those services to the housing so that when we get you in housing now all of.

"Homelessness is something most of us witness daily. But there's a reason for optimism and we'll discuss how dallas plans to help people on the street into housing and a new future mandy. Welcome to the podcast. Thank you for having me. Thank you so much manny for being here and of course paul and our dallas guys and in the city through it throughout dallas. We have seen we've witnessed. I think with our own eyes. What seems to be an exacerbation of the struggle with homelessness. All around us. And i don't remember really a time when i've heard so much talk about homelessness being a problem. And i'm hoping that you can give us a sense of perception versus reality as it relates to the actual numbers of people on on the streets. If this problem is as bad as it's ever been ha- you know what is the scale of how bad it's gotten in and why are we seen it like it is now. Yeah i mean homelessness. Certainly isn't something new. And if you look throughout history you know modern history. We've certainly seen homelessness Shift and The nature of the individuals who are experiencing homelessness has also shifted along with that In this particular moment it is accurate to say that homelessness is growing in the dallas region in particular. We're seeing larger numbers of individuals who are experiencing unsheltered homelessness and this oftentimes is associated with A a an assumption that these individuals are in fact very severely mentally. Ill you know very active drug users. Unwilling to be helped and the reality is An arise and unsheltered homelessness is really more like the canary in the coal mine so it oftentimes more a reflection of your housing market shifting of housing becoming unattainable And by unattainable we mean both from an affordability perspective but also given the nature of our society. Today you can afford an apartment and no one will rent to you. So accessibility comes in multiple forms and as unsheltered homelessness grows. It really is a signal that you're housing. Market is out of balance and that people are becoming Lost and that they feel like there's very little hope for them which is why they oftentimes opt for a different kind of life on the streets Not that individuals are choosing that or want that but that that's all that feels accessible to them in in a particular community and it's no secret that dallas and the dallas region has seen it pretty dramatic shift in its housing market. You've seen costs Grow dramatically you've seen lots of Investors purchasing what was what we would call naturally occur occurring affordable housing and redeveloping those communities. And they're not redeveloping for low income individuals and even when we do redevelop with low income individuals in mind the financing strategies are such that are the the new investors want to protect their asset. And the way they protect their asset is by denying access to anyone who's ever experienced any kind of adversity as a as a low income individual in their life. So if you've ever been evicted if you have poor credit If you have any kind of criminal background we say those are not desirable tenants. We're not gonna rent are low income housing to you but the reality is almost anyone who's been low income has faced hardships and they have an fiction and they have poor credit and so those those complexities are really what have brought us to this particular moment which also means that the solution oftentimes involves peeling back those layers of complexity and re constructing An approach that brings back hope and opportunity to those individuals and balanced to a community rudy. And i were talking. We'd kind of prepared for our conversation with you and we were speculating on you. Know that the perception generally is there something wrong with somebody. That's homeless right or wrong right de. There's an addiction or mental illness but in my experience with ti was telling rudy when we closed down arguing. T. dallas campus For corona virus Eighteen months ago. i guess now We had to leave our dorms open because we had had some students that this was their only home. They came from a homeless background to go to college. In the these are great kids that are you know people that have a super bright future ahead of them so help us with with what's perception reality as far as the demographics go we say. There's you know forty five thousand homeless in in dallas and collin counties. What percent would you guess ballpark. Have you know real addiction or mental health issue so so. The data is relatively varied on that. So let me try to break it down so when we do our data analysis and are pointing. Time counts and assessments across our Homeless population what. We tend to identify as an individual who is chronically homeless. meaning they have a serious disabling. Condition and the rx. The are experiencing a very long out of homelessness or multiple bouts of homelessness. In a short period of time we identify those individuals and label them chronically homeless and in dallas that percentages remained relatively low over the course of the last several years even while homelessness has continued to increase. Which is why. I kinda pointed to this idea that when you're unsheltered. Homeless population begins to grow. It's the canary in the coal mine as it relates to the larger kind of forces at play in your community so the reason why we have a perception that of of homeless individuals as being mentally ill as i think traditionally the individuals you used to see outside the handful of individuals you used if see outside were in fact the handful of individuals that do have very serious mental illness and do have very complex Physical and mental health needs that are not being tended to the these are outliers in our society and we have not built systems that are easily accessible when we get sick. Sometimes how complicated it is for us to get. Can you imagine someone who who's go. Who's so compromised but The majority of individuals so you. You're looking at sixty percent or greater are individuals who really don't fall into any of those categories of serious mental illness or or serious addiction series disabling conditions these are just individuals who are experiencing poverty and now are being priced out of the market the other key factor here and the difference maker and i think you you pointed out when you talked about the keeping. The doors open is the difference between one low income individuals whose experiencing housing instability becoming homeless. And and another. Who doesn't is really their support system so when you can leverage a support system that's how even individuals with serious disabling conditions remains stably house despite those complexities when you are hit with that double-whammy of serious complex issues and a lack of support systems..

"To think that way When kids go out to the pending. I agree with you. Miguel and boldness is the reason why we're we're we are today and i started this by saying i'm bullish on the disd. But i it strikes me that the gravest danger to all of the progress is if the decisions that have to be made are so politicized in in a national way. That isn't particularly applicable to what needs to happen to get the best outcomes for kids in classrooms. Then all of this were can can vanish pretty quickly. And that really is quite frightening to think about the just how much this rock has been pushed up the hill and how quickly it can go rolling back down and so i. I appreciate the the chances that people in elected positions have taken on the board. And i realized those are not without political price but but but boy it's it it's fragile and if we're not careful we'll lose it good.

"Is you know you mentioned competition. And that's really where they're reads. The road and i think in order to compete to attract students Back to the district number one. You need a better product and in our case that product is making sure that student outcomes are better. And so you know that's where we started because we can't have generation of kids staying idly by while we try to build you know fancy new buildings while what's going on in. The building is not effective. So we we started with improving student outcomes but to your point that is not entirely sufficient. We we also need to market those student outcomes and we need to make sure that curb appeal You know attracts people into our buildings. Because i mentioned the growth in charter schools. What those charter. Schools do have is brand new buildings while the academic success. That's going on in. The classrooms may not be to the same level as disd. They look good from the street. And if you're a parent you know That curb appeal matters. And so we are investing those those bond dollars that you mentioned and improving that curb appeal and every single district every single school in the district and is going to get their priority party to needs addressed. Many of those are things like new roofs and h back but but many but a lot of them are also You know in curb appeal things that you see. From the outside improvements of the grounds the marquees paint At all really matters interesting thing though about the bond. I guess two points i want to make. Is that one going back to this idea of figuring out how you reckon with historical inequities. There were forty one million dollars carved out of this bond to go into Four communities that have historically been neglected. The most in this goes all the way back literal policy decisions that were made. Nearly a century go that this invested in certain communities using something like federal redline maps homeowners on corporation maps as a way finder to go find these these areas of disinvestment and then placing community resource centers that hope to fill in certain gaps in those communities Things like grocery stores or things like medical centers that don't exist right now. That's a really encouraging thing. I think the second thing is when you look at how the bond passed you. Read me a ton of data at the beginning of says people still questioned the quality of the ice and yet the two thousand fifteen bond pass with sixty percent of the vote this recent bond pass with a little less but still passed and a majority of the bond three point. Four billion pass knowing that it was going to be the largest bond ever in the history of the state of texas. So i'm encouraged by those numbers and it makes me believe that there though people will tell you one thing on one survey they'll put their money in disd as we're starting to run short on time here with five minutes or so left I think we'd be irresponsible. Not to talk about the cove impact and I've read stories. You know students are falling behind right. Whether it's you know not having the right infrastructure at home to log in or the right You've got a bunch of students that are behind. i understand. there's a campaign to get tutors to work with kids to help them get caught up. How long do we think this impact will last of kids that you know over the last year and change haven't been able to get the full amount of of education that they normally would. I don't know that. I have a good answer. In terms of the number of amount of time it will take to get them back on track. But certainly there's been substantial learning loss We've seen twenty thirty points slides student performance particularly in math. And so we've got a lot of ground to make up You know what i can tell you is that we're mobilizing very very quickly to address that learning loss as quickly as possible and we're doing that through expanding broadband access. Which is you know something that you you hit on. But we're also doing it with some pretty innovative ideas like bringing in one thousand nine hundred tutors that miguel can talk more about as well as extending the school year Which is something that the board. Just a pre approved a couple months ago where select schools can opt into an intercessional calendar that shortens the summer break and creates Periodic breaks throughout the year. Where students who have fallen behind can attend school during those breaks to get the individual intervention that they need one on one. I'm not a pessimist at heart Really can tell you all about this. He knows that. I am a pragmatic idealist. But let me start with some pretty dark data. Historically texas is very bad at learning recovery on.

"Excellent thirty six percent ranked it as poor thirty eight percent fair and in twenty one percent as good. And if you look at this survey It kinda thousand foot level. Disd is still for residents on dallas. The biggest barrier to the city's success. So help me square this circle. Where are we at this point in time in our public school system. And where do we need to go. Well when you read those numbers. I think about What was the movie with Jim carey and The other guy dumb and dumber. He says so. You're saying a chance. People may believe the disd is getting better. But there's a long way to go. I would say rudy that the system as it stands today is in the best spot. It's been in in quite some time in multiple generations. The fact of the matter is that far too. Many people still and i'll just be blunt are ignorant about the quality of public schools in that. Ignorance is not is not manifest. I think from some bad place issue simply that people are stuck on the historical narrative of disd. And for whatever reason whether it's that the system our system itself hasn't communicated in an effective way or we have and people just don't believe it People will still tell you that it needs to improve but when you look at the data and this is something that does doesn't an i live by the dadar clear. Quantitatively longitudinal early. This system has improved and made market improvement year after year for the past decade on any measurement. Let's get into that dustin. 'cause you're you're a numbers guy you you roll through the data. What are the data points that feel like support. What miguel is saying about the enhancement of the district. You know in the last few years. Yeah i mean there are tons. I've i think the most impressive one for me is the number of underperforming her f- rated schools that we used to have vis-a-vis what we have today. If you if you look back five or six years ago we had forty seven schools. That were rated. I are by the state and this year. We got down to three. And that's probably the most impressive educational statistic anywhere in the country During that same time period we saw third grade reading. Scores improved by eight percent. We've outpaced the growth of the state on average across all assessments by six percent where the fastest improving urban school district and in the country. And you know. I think if it doesn't really matter to be honest which data element you look at. Every one of them tells the same story. But i would echo. What miguel said. I mean if you grew up in dallas like me you're used to decades of reading on the front page of the dallas morning news about the turmoil and the dallas school board and about kids underperforming. And you know. I think that sort of brand that sort of perception takes a while to change. And frankly school districts in general and us included or not very good at marketing. So we've got the successes data to prove it. We just gotta do better job of telling the story to overcome that that brand sure and i love pitching the newspaper under the bus as much as anybody wait. No i don't like that at all. The fact of the matter is that those headlines reflected a reality for alert. I'm not suggesting the headlines. Where an accurate. I think that the school board was dysfunctional. And there for many years we were you know seriously underperforming for our kids but if you look at the last five to ten years there's been a remarkable turnaround underway in the isd. And i think that dallas morning news is gonna done a good job of covering that transformation and additionally i. I'd make the argument that if you look at today's school board and i can say this now objectively. Because i'm no longer on the school board. I think this is one of the best school. Boards that dos. Ice tea has ever had. It is pooled together a very diverse group of individuals with storied backgrounds A very intellectual board. Dallas ice tea is attracting leadership back to the system to then put the tough Changes in place that that need to continue to improve his but have for quite some time in that alone i feel like is a great Testimony to the market improvement. That's happened. Have you guys talked about how to get the word out about the progress i i live in dallas. I'm not a disd parent. I would say generally you know water cooler talk among friends at our parents. I've noticed an uptick in in their feelings about how the school district is doing. But i obviously based on that survey. We're talking about. It's it's not happening everywhere. So is that something strategically that you guys have talked about. Obviously dustin. You're you're living day to day right now. Yeah absolutely in fact we recently just launched a new marketing campaign with the sort of byline of this is home. And we're putting more money behind that than we've never done in the past and we're also starting you know. In addition to that sort of macro level brand exposure we're also starting to make micro level comparisons between schools in particular neighborhoods The superintendent is fond of saying that when he was here the first go round there were something on the order of seven. To eight thousand kids enrolled in charter schools within disd's boundary attendance boundaries. And now that number is thirty. Five to forty thousand and they achieved that success in the growth in market share of students because they were marketing. And what we've started to do now is to make local level comparisons between the local. Disd school and the closest charter alternative and talk about the programs that are available in disd. The athletics that you can get there that you can't get from the charter school of fine arts offerings. That you can't get from the charter school. And the academic performance that actually show that that local. disd school is actually outperforming. The charter school competitor in there has just as mentioning this growth of choice. Opportunity for people. From all across the city has been exponential and it provides a robust set of opportunities that quite honestly never existed in the past including socio economic integration schools where fifty percent of the kids have got to be low income the other fifty percent middle to upper income. Every one of these choice school some of your listeners may know the name solar prepatory school for girls and boys. These schools have all got wait list. And you've got middle class families who are scratching at the door to try to get their kids in so as as choices evolved you started to see some of the water cooler talk Change but i want to take a macro step back for a second and say the conversation around the quality of public schools and the archaic narrative about public schools isn't unique to dallas. This is happening all across the nation. I would actually point to douse to say if there is one city or at least a one of a few cities that is beginning to change the watercooler talk. It is dallas. I'd also point to dc public schools. I point to denver public schools. Although there's been some regression recently there the other thing i'd say is that for a very very long time. Dallas ice sti was a reactive media participant They waited until the bad stories came up and then tried to fight those stories. I would say that over the past decade that philosophy of media engagement has also shifted. And if you go when you just do a general. Google search dallas ice in the news. There are a lot more honest positive stories about the great stuff happening. But let's dig into. Why that is. I don't think that's like a pr strategy right. We got to to get to. What's really going on here. Which i think is probably one of the most important stories in education in the country. We got a dial back. The clock a little bit and look at some really hard political choices that disd made not without a little bit of blood spilled frankly and hair loss and hate inherited us right Thank goodness is a podcast. But what were the critical.

Welcome to the show. We gotta hear about this bear. Everybody does lay for some reason. I voted intrigue. That story has stayed hidden for a long time. but i've always bought of my best stories. I wrestled a bear rosca in nineteen seventy eight. Maybe early seventy nine. I is at the convention. Saturday had a boat show and there was a bear there and i wrestled the barrett omaha nebraska. Well a few months later. I get fired onto brassica and i have any audition dates. I thought i'd never leave omaha quite honestly and i call this buddy. Paul young director i said.

Show so i sent it to a head hunter in new york city named shirley barish and she was really a crazy woman and all i had on was like. He's stupid jackets with big mtv logo on it. Because that's what they made us. Where would run on a remote location. And i'm wrestling a bear. And that's basically the gist of all. I've got she calls me and she was a heavy smoker as she really did. Talk like this. I was j body. Are you applying for a job as a sportscaster or to be an auto mechanic at the skelly station. I that's the best that guy. Let me see what i can do. She said the day cosby a month or two later. Got you interview in dallas. And i said and i swear to edgewood texas. How many dallas's d.

If i run. If i hire you where you're russell a bear and thinking sure wrestle a bear what are the odds and about six months later there was a 'nother show boat show at the convention center here in downtown dallas and i had to go russell another bear. Wasn't there a scene in the movie. Anchorman where there was a bear. Being wrestled is that with the bear. The bears trained not to go back to overhaul. The guy says to the guy you want to put on a show for these people right. And i said yeah he goes. Hit the bear as hard as you can these that you cannot hurt the bear so the introduced me because everybody else out there and it was like support like if you knocked the bear onto his back. You win one hundred dollars or something. So everybody's after trying to wrestle and the bear is somewhat trade he's got a muzzle on but he just reaches down pulls your legs out knocks you down. Whatever so they introduced me. And i just come running out as hard as not. I wasn't quite as big as i am now. But i was still about ten six four to ten and i go full speed across the stage. I dove into that bear with the best body blocked tackle. you can make the bare. Just kinda shrug that been. I got up. He pulled my legs underneath me. Pinch me again in both cases that i wrestled a bear. I went back to the station. This happened both times true. I went back to my editor. And i said listen. Let's just do about thirty forty seconds.
