"Here we go again. Another horrific score shooting in America. There are families who are in mourning right now. And instead of Texas, is in mourning with them. This is a special edition of the Mike Gallagher show horror Texas. As a nation, we have to ask, when in God's name, are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? We can't eradicate evil through legislation. And in addition to the mess shooting and you've all the primary results are in from key states, breaking news, and what to make of it. From the Salem media group studios in Camarillo, California. Here's Mike Gallagher. Are we able to eradicate evil? Through legislation, welcome in to once again a heartbreaking episode of our show where too many times, we have struggled with trying to make sense out of the senseless. The stories are so heartbreaking. I talked to my dear friend Mark Davis this morning in Dallas, of course the entire lone star state is reeling from this catastrophe. Mark got emotional when we think about the faces of these beautiful little children, who will not grow old, who will not grow up. The families who have to crawl crawl out of bed this morning and figure out how to live life without their precious child. The teacher who bravely used her body to shield her precious charges from such evil. And was slaughtered. By this monster. Can we legislate away evil? It's a philosophical philosophical question to be sure, but it's also a pragmatic one. It's a question that needs to be asked. How do we do that? Reince priebus of all people floated that question on TV, we had all the Talking Heads that you can shake a stick at. Bless my team, they are like, who do we? Let's get a psychologist on. Let's get, yeah, you know what a psychology is going to say? Well, we ought to know the warning signs. What are the warning signs? Well, the 18 year old was troubled. Oh, that's good. Good luck. With turning in all the troubled 18 year olds, how the hell is that going to work? They don't say anything. Nobody ever says anything and nobody ever does anything. Because words are hollow, words are empty, words are meaningless. And yet sometimes words are precise and I appreciate the former White House chief of staff and the former chair of the RNC reince priebus with the precision with which he delivered this message to Sean Hannity last night on Fox News channel. We can't eradicate evil through legislation. And the answer to our problems can't be as Joe Biden said tonight to just take on the gun lobby. At some point, we as a country need to understand that we can only overcome evil with good and that God's power is more important and more powerful than any sort of power that a bunch of people in Washington D.C. think that their brains can get together and fix evil in this world. Their answers are not in government, our answers are with God and with him, evil can be overcome with good. Now, the Bible also says that there's going to be no peace for the wicked. And so I wouldn't want to be where this shooter is tonight because it's not a great place. And yet, to reince priebus, his message, a prominent Democrat like Arizona congressman Ruben gallego said F your prayers. That's what he said on social media. FU Ted Cruz, he said, if you you effing baby killer, that's the United States congressman. Is there any discipline for a congressman? Who would say something like that? I would love to hear from somebody in Ruben gallegos district. Can you imagine a grieving nation and you're elected to Congress? To serve your constituents? And your public statement includes telling a U.S. senator, you're an effing baby killer, go F yourself. That would be the words of representative Ruben gallego. Democrat Arizona. Hey, arizonans. What do you think of your congressman? And what do you think of the question that reince priebus asked about legislating away evil? Because ultimately, in a perfect world, if we could fix things, that's what we do. We pass a law and make evil go away. How do we do that? How do we do that? We have a lot of questions. Maybe.
Fresh update on "davis" discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
"17, and 28. Now it's more like 48, 51, maybe not at all. And when you combine that reality with, hey, you come back to school making a lot of money. And be the best player on your team. That's the other thing I think is lost sometimes. There's something awesome about being the best player on a team. Like have you ever been the best player when you were growing up? Were you ever the best player on a team? I was sometimes the best player on a team that I was on. And that's a lot of fun. You know, it's fun being awesome. And so you want to go play in the G league and just be a guy or go to the NBA and sit at the end of the binge. We want to come back to college, make a lot of money and be the best player on your team. One of the best players in the country, playing packed arenas on television. It's just a more attractive option for a lot of these guys. And that has been the story of this off season when it comes to NBA draft decisions for the most part. We're getting some I know the system is to whatever extended exists has created some chaos and uncertainty and frustration. But one of the byproducts of it is that we're getting some awesome college basketball players back in school. And trace Jackson Davis is maybe not at the top of that list, but he's close to it. I've never been the best player on any team. The closest I ever came to this was I grew up went to high school, middle school and high school in Vermont, and then I moved my senior year of high school, which is brutal. Don't recommend it to anyone. But what can you do? So, but in Vermont, it's not good enough to be on the ski team. And then I moved to Connecticut, and I was the second best gear in the entire school. I still wasn't the best. There was still someone who was better than me, but I was the second Vermont down to Connecticut. Did ski team? 'cause I wasn't good enough to play varsity. I wasn't good enough to hoop it as a senior in Connecticut. I was like, oh, whatever, I'll just ski team. Second best right there, right away. That's the closest I've ever been best on. I don't think I was ever best on a baseball team as close, probably, but I don't think I was ever best. On soccer teams, I was the best when I was young. I'm not lying. I was an unbelievable. I was the Pelé of horn like Mississippi. That's what I was nicknamed. I was nicknamed the Pelé of more like my sister. It's a true story. That's a true story. I was the Pelé. I was the Pelé of horn like Mississippi. So I play. So I was three different. I think go ahead. Everyone listening, go back, listen to the past 20 seconds. I think he said three different ways in about 12 seconds. I kept I wanted to I wanted to emphasize it over and over again. Get a little better each time. I was the play of horn Lake Mississippi. That's what I was nicknamed as I was growing up. And I played club soccer when I was young. Like, you know, ten, 11, 12, 13, something like that. And then I wanted to play high school baseball, but my club soccer team was one of those, you got to play year round, no other sports. And we didn't have high school soccer at the time. And I was like, I was obsessed with getting a letter jacket. That's what that's what felt important to me. And I was like, I'm going to play high school baseball because I want to play for my high school. And if you tell me, I can't play club soccer in high school baseball that I'm just going to not play club soccer. So I quit, but I still wanted to play soccer. And so I played in a lesser league for a lesser team. And I was reestablished myself as the paleo horn Lake. It was outrageous how unbelievable. I was relative to the competition. And then my junior year of high school, this is all true. Junior of high school, we got a soccer team. First soccer team in the history of horned like ah. And we actually organized it just because you were gonna play, right? It was like, we got the Pelé of horn Lake in rolled. Remember how they remember how they built a basketball team around amani Bates? It's basically the same thing. I was like, I've never thought about this before. But I was like the amani Bates of horny high school. And so we got in DeSoto county, Mississippi, we got high school soccer for the first time. My baseball coach, he said, he said, you don't want to play that because you're going to, you know, what if you get hurt, you won't be able to play baseball in the spring. And as the coach, I'll be fine. So I played high school soccer and I averaged like I had trick a game. It was outrageous. You did not. I'm telling the truth. There's no shot. I average like three goals a game in high school. I averaged about averaged about three goals a game. If it were actually a hat trick, it would not surprise me. I was, I was superior. I was the Pelé of horn Lake. It was like, it was like I was like I was dropped in from the Premier League and I was suddenly playing in MLS. That's what it felt like. Not to take a shot at MLS. I don't even really know what.
Remember, Populism Is Not Conservatism
"And I don't dispute that he made some mistakes. I started my day with a knock down drag out with my pal Mark Davis in Dallas because Mark said, wow, we dodged a bullet. Why? I still can't hit the high notes. That's called doing a musical nonstop for three weeks and screeching and blowing out your voice. Yeah, mark's very excited that Madison Cawthorn lost. And I sort of tried with love and respect to get Mac marked to back off. We Republicans never know how to act. Unified. And Mark claims that it was all about finding the most conservative representative. Possible. And I get it. I appreciate that. But there is this, there is a populism that the establishment types can't stand. That's why they hate Trump so much. It has to do with the populist streak of trumpism. Populism is not conservatism. And some of us are having a more difficult time than others in reconciling the two.
Newsmax Host John Bachman Shares His Backstory
"John, bob, I'm glad to have you with us today on dot com's podcast. It's not going to be with you. Have you called my friend? I guess that's what happens when you share your waffle House menu selections. You really become tight with somebody. Well, you know, when we get to be friends, you know, when I tell you what to order at waffle House, then we've got it down there. Hey, as we get started, one of the things I love to do in this podcast and when I do especially people politicians, I do media people is everybody knows us and I found this to be true and I think you probably have as well. If they see us in the airport or they see us have they know us from this right here, they know it from the camera if you would. They don't know the background. So span just a few minutes telling us, you know, where are you from? How you got here and just give us a good taste of who you are. Well, I'm from Marietta, Georgia originally. I was born actually my parents live in kennesaw when I was born. And we moved to Tampa pretty quickly thereafter and live there for 8 years, but moved back to Marietta when I was 8 years old. And from 8 years on all the way through my 5 years at the university of Georgia and there after my first job in television was in Augusta, Georgia was my home. I love it. I love the braise. I love the dogs. Having the Olympics there was fantastic as well. And it was just, you know, I think I lived there in a perfect time when the state to me, we learned about a three pillars, right? Wisdom justice and moderation. And all three things were readily available to me. Growing up in Marietta, I went to Davis elementary middle school and Lassiter high school for those folks to know. But it was such a great community because people were moving to Atlanta from all over the place. My parents were actually from the northeast, my dad settled in Atlanta in the 70s with my mom when we moved back there, but at that time in the late 80s, early 90s Atlanta was such a boom town and we had people from all over the place. And it was just such a great melting pot of different Americans and all kinds of folks, different races and religions. And I really felt like I had a wonderful public school experience and when it came time for college, the only thing I knew is that I wanted to go to an SEC football school. My dad went to graduate school at the university of Florida, and he took me to a game when I was four years old. It was a Florida Miami game. And it was one of my earliest memories, and I just love the whole thing. And then, you know, my sister went to auburn, and I was spent some time with her at all. My older sister, and I was like, this place is great. All these people are so nice on the planes. And I was like, it's a little boring though. And then finally, I didn't think I was gonna get into Georgia but I did get in and I went there and I had a bunch of buddies of mine who are you older than me in high school that went there and I spent some time with them and the moment I walked on campus I knew I was

An In-Depth Look at Nina Jankowicz, the 'Disinformation' Specialist
"Jankowicz is now in charge of censoring people's speech from the federal government, but before she said that the executive branch shouldn't have the power to determine what is fake news play cut 16. Imagine that, you know, with president Trump right now calling all of these news organizations that have inconvenient for him stories that they're getting out there that he's calling fake news and now lashing out at platforms. I would never want to see our executive branch. Have that sort of power. She reminds me of Pete Buttigieg. Reminds you of Pete Buttigieg because she was created in the academy. And for a very specific purpose, she was created in the academy because she's there she's basically like a somebody that is there in the branch of government that will never question the hierarchy. That someone within the workings and almost has like a robot, a robotic type of focus on one issue. It's like, you think about it, a disinformation expert, somebody in power, picked up Nina jankovic, a couple years ago, saw that she had some, I guess, I don't quite understand. I don't quite know the word skill, I guess. But she was very likely to obey, right? She wanted approval. I think Nina jankowicz wants approval by other people. And she had an unflinching loyalty to the party line. Someone saw that she had a lot of potential for that. So someone obviously decided to get Nina jankowitz in the right positions, working on the Ukraine desk, working in all sorts of places that eventually Nina jankowicz could have an over promotion just like Pete Buttigieg mayor Pete and they go to these type elite schools. They never say anything disagreeable to the consensus. And they're honestly quite boring. Like if you sat down with Pete Buttigieg or need a jenko, they wouldn't really have an interesting unique thought, right? They just kind of regurgitate what other people would say. They are craft, they
Is It Likely SCOTUS Will Change Their Stance on Roe v Wade Now?
"Me ask you a question, how likely is it that the final decision will be the same as the draft decision? Having clerked and having gone through that. Do you think now there's a chance that they change their mind or do you think that the draft was actually not a certain as we might have believed? Do you have any insight into that? Yeah, I mean, I don't have any insight into this particular case because I don't talk to justices or court employees including the clerks about current cases. That would be inappropriate but I will tell you just how the process is generally works is the first draft comes out and then the justices collaborate, which is an improved the draft. You maybe one of the justices and their clerks catches a mistake and they go through that editing process and it circulates for a long time. But circulates for several weeks and then the dissenting justices right there draft and circulated the concurring justices right their draft and circulate it, but I will say this if the intended effect was to get justices to change their votes, maybe waffling conservative justices to back away from a 5 or 6 vote majority to overturn roe versus wade and Casey, I think this leak is going to have the exact opposite of facts. Now justices can not condone this likely illegal behavior. They can not reward it by changing their votes. I think for judicial independence, they need to stay firm.
Mike Davis Explains Just How Huge This SCOTUS Breach of Protocol Is
"Yesterday, we were diving into how the United States Supreme Court has suffered, I guess is the best word to use. And unprecedented leak from who we do not know, we think we know, but the person who is best able to describe this and articulate it is the head of a wonderful organization called the article three project that's article number three project dot org. And it is the terrific Mike Davis Mike. Welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me back on Charlie. So Mike, how are we supposed to make of this? The U.S. Supreme Court is leaking decisions before they happen. First of all, who could potentially do something like this, do we know who probably did this? And if so, what is the proper course of action to hold that person accountable? So I clerked for justice Gorsuch on the Supreme Court and I also served as the chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee and my part of my portfolio was oversight over the federal judiciary. I have never heard anything like what happens with this leak. I don't think it's ever happens that a draft majority opinion for a Supreme Court case has leaked out prior to the court issuing the opinion, especially in a case this monumental. This is the Dobbs case where it looks like the at least 5, maybe 6 justices on the Supreme Court are going to overturn roe versus wade and Planned Parenthood Planned Parenthood versus Casey and return abortion regulations back to the states where it belongs. This is a stunning breach of protocol. Each of the 9 Supreme Court Justices have four law clerks, each of them have generally two to three administrative aids. It is a very small universe of people who have access to these draft opinions and these opinions have to circulate among the justices because they have to work together. They have to collaborate in order to draft majority opinions dissenting opinions and concurring opinions. And if you shatter that trust, if you shatter that secrecy that confidence in the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court can no longer function.
Supreme Court Confirms Leaked Abortion Draft Is Authentic
"Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show, while the Supreme Court has issued a response to the report of this draft opinion, chief justice John Roberts strongly condemning the leak to the press in a brief message, the court acknowledged that the leaked document is real. So so much for my buddy Mark Davis theory that it was fake. By but noting that it is just a draft, the court has not issued a final decision on the matter. The court said, just quote, justices circulate draft opinions internally as a routine and essential part of the court's confidential deliberative work, although the document described in yesterday's reports is authentic. It does not represent a decision by the court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case. Roberts also issued a statement, he announced that he has called upon the marshal of the court to investigate the situation and find the source who leaked the document to Politico. Justice Roberts also spoke out against the notion that the leak could succeed as a political maneuver to influence the court. Roberts said to the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed the work of the court will not be affected in any
Mark Davis Wants to Win People Over on Twitter
"davis" Discussed on THE NEWS with Anthony Davis
"Ukrainians ignore surrender or die demand in Mario pole. Three mass shootings across Easter weekend in the U.S.. And 443 dead amid climate change weather event in South Africa. It's Monday, April 18. I'm Antony Davis. Fighters hold up in a massive steel plant in Ukraine in the last known pocket of resistance inside the shattered city of Mario pole, ignored a surrender or die ultimatum from Russia on Sunday and held out against the capture of the strategic and vital port. The fall of Mario pole, the site of a merciless 7 week old siege that has reduced much of the city to a smoking ruin would be Moscow's biggest victory of the war and free up troops to take part in a potentially climactic battle for control of Ukraine's industrial east. Capturing the southern city would also allow Russia to fully secure a land corridor to the Crimean Peninsula, which it seized from Ukraine in 2014 and deprive Ukraine of a major port and its prized industrial assets. Its missiles and rockets slammed into other parts of the country, Russia estimated that two and a half thousand Ukrainian troops and about 400 foreign mercenaries were dug in at the sprawling as of stealth steel mill, which covers more than four square miles and is laced with tunnels. Moscow had given the defenders, including children, a midday deadline to surrender and keep their lives, but the Ukrainians rejected it, as they've done with previous ultimatums. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky sent Easter greetings via Twitter, saying the lord's resurrection is a testimony to the victory of life over death, good over evil. If Mario pole falls, Russian forces there are expected to join an all out offensive in the coming days for control of the Don bass, the eastern industrial region that the Kremlin is bent on capturing after failing in its bid to take Ukraine's capital Kyiv. Authorities in South Carolina are investigating a shooting in a nightclub that happened early Sunday that wounded at least 9 people. It was the second mass shooting in the state and the third in the nation during the Easter holiday we can. The shootings in South Carolina and one in Pittsburgh, in which two miners were killed early Sunday, also left at least 31 people wounded. No one was reported killed in the violence at Cara's lounge in Hampton county, roughly 80 miles west of Charleston, but in Pittsburgh two male youths were killed and at least 8 people wounded when shots were fired during a party at a short term rental property. The county medical examiner's office identified the two victims as Jaden Brown and Matthew Steffi Ross, both 17, investigators believe there were multiple shooters and police were processing evidence at as many as 8 separate crime scenes spanning a few blocks around the rental home. The two shootings come just a day after gunfire erupted at a busy mall in the South Carolina state capital of Colombia, about 90 miles north of Sunday's nightclub shooting. 9 people were shot there and 5 people sustained other kinds of injuries while trying to flee the scene at the columbiana center. The victim's age ranged from 15 to 73. The three Easter weekend mass shootings are in addition to other gun violence in recent days. Last week, a gunman opened fire in a New York subway car wounding ten people that the suspect was arrested the next day. Earlier this month, 6 people were killed and 12 others wounded in Sacramento, California during a gunfight between rival gangs as bars closed in a busy downtown area, just blocks from the state capitol. And a week ago, a shooting inside a crowded nightclub in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, left a man and a woman dead, and ten people wounded. And just last month, ten people were shot at a spring break party in Dallas and several others were injured as they tried to escape the gunfire. Despite weekly shootings, there is no appetite for gun control legislation in the United States Congress. Authorities in South Africa said on Sunday that at least 443 people have now died due to flooding and mudslides that followed heavy storms in the kwa Zulu natal province. Kwa Zulu natal premier sahil Zika Lala said at a news conference on Sunday that 63 residents are still unaccounted for, calling the disaster among the worst the province has ever seen. We sympathize with all those who lost their relatives and friends in the floods that attacked kwa Zulu natal Zika Lala said in a Facebook post over the weekend as a government we will do everything we can to help our communities that have lost relatives and friends. South African president Cyril ramaphosa has delayed an official visit to Saudi Arabia to focus on the natural disaster, noting that he plans to meet with cabinet members to assess the damage. The storms and flooding have left thousands of residents homeless, knocked out power and water services and delayed operations at durban, the country's busiest port. Kwa Zulu natal residents are terrified of the thought of more rain falling on the region, and they said they are losing hope of finding relatives in the aftermath of the disaster. Africa's southeastern coast is expected to be hit hard by climate change, with more extreme storms and flooding expected in the decades ahead. The climate crisis continues to create extreme weather events across the world, bringing loss of life and hardship to thousands of people. Despite this, there is still little action being taken by the major polluters to curb their ever increasing carbon emissions.

The Elites Are Less Relevant Than Ever... And Resentful About It!
Have Wealthy Societies Historically Embraced 'Wokeism'?
"Of history, I'm curious, you mentioned the French Revolution. There has there been times ever in history. Where a very wealthy society decides to embrace this kind of woke ideology, something similar to woken. Does that make sense? I mean, there was a legitimate reason to get rid of the bourbons. And they looked at there were a lot of moderate people and they looked at the British system and they said, you can have a monarchy compatible with a constitutional republic. And that was eminently possible in 1787. And then you had these cycles of revolution where today's revolutionary would be tomorrow's sellout. You just want more robespierre was killed by the very people who used to support him, right? And basically got liquidated him and his brother in about 1400. And they applauded for ten minutes. The legend goes. They did. And then those cycles kept going and then you always are into it. So what does that mean for us then? Well, it always ends because chaos is unsustainable. So Napoleon ended it. Very brilliant fashion. He just said, I am the revolution, I'm going to make all the total power. I'm going to create a military academy that's going to be based on Napoleon. It's just like Stalin stopped it.
Dr. Victor Davis Hanson on His Book 'The Dying Citizen'
"Show with me. I feel like is a teacher of mine. Someone who I've consumed hundreds of hours of his commentary and content, doctor Victor Davis Hanson. Thank you for having me. I just we were just talking how I finished your World War II course and I was blown away by that and your citizenship course for hillsdale college. And I suppose let's just start there. Tell us about your book, the dying citizen. Well, it's a, it's not a lamentation or a eulogy for the dead citizen because I would have called it the dead citizen. It's a process of dying. And it's an erosion in the traditional prerogatives of a citizen. I think it applies to the western world in general, not just the United States in particular, but it's the suggestion that there's no sharp difference between a resident, legal or illegal and a citizen whether that means voting today or engaging in a campaign. You can be a resident. You can be here illegally and do that. Or military service. The only thing the only distinction that's left really is the ability to hold office, only citizens can do that. But if you're not a citizen, you're a resident, you can come and go as you please, apparently, see in the southern border. You can join the military. You can vote in certain places. I think soon you'll be able to hold off. So I tried to explain the history of citizenship. It was very rare, peculiar, late in history, and 8th century in Greece, fragile, today there's only two or three places that can pull off a multiracial constitutional system, Brazil, maybe India, they don't do it very well. But I was trying to remind people that unless you invest in citizenship and constantly audit it, it's the aberration in history and it will disappear. I think it is disappearing unless we stand at attention and try to do something to save
Big Tech Was Wrong About Censoring Hunter Biden Story
"And you know something? Twitter was wrong. Facebook, all these platforms that banned people who reported and covered the Hunter Biden laptop story, they were wrong. The New York Times did a big deep dive the other day. They said, oh, yeah, that's legitimate. It's legitimate. Well, where's the apology? Where do we go now? You want to play in that sandbox? Why? Why would you let some 21 year olds not knows kid in a cubicle in San Francisco tell you what you're allowed to feel or think or say out loud? Why? I would find that emasculating. And I'm not going to give them the opportunity. Now, tell me where I'm wrong. Maybe I'll play the exchange with Mark Davis later today. You can hear it because this is a big deal. This big tech censorship thing has got to stop. And according to Mark, again, a dear friend, and I want to pick on him the last thing he wants is the government, he says, telling Twitter what to do. There should not be any government interference, he said, in a private company like Twitter. And frankly, I think the argument can be made that the republic utility. Everybody uses it. They ought to play by some sort of some modicum of fairness. I'm not allowed to get on these airwaves and curse. The radio airwaves are regulated by the government. Why shouldn't Twitter? Why can't we break them
Twitter Suspends Mark Davis for Alleged Hate Speech
"My poor buddy Mark Davis in Dallas is steadfast in his existence that he's going to keep playing in Twitter's playground and they suspended him. Because he reposted something on the trans debate. And Twitter won't have it. That's hate speech. So now Mark Davis, who is as good and decent a guy as you'll ever meet is on the record as committed the sin of hate speech on Twitter and they gave him a timeout for 12 hours. I keep saying Mark. Walk away. Why do you want to keep getting abused by some 20 year old virtue signaler in Silicon Valley who's going to monitor your feed and shut you down? It is a terrible feeling incidentally. YouTube has done it to us. YouTube did it to us when we played a Fox News clip of a mom standing up at a school board meeting in Atlanta. All we did was play the clip. I didn't even say anything other than introduce the clip. That was COVID misinformation, mister Gallagher, your YouTube account is now suspended. Sebastian gorka is suspended forever. He can never go back on YouTube. Now think about that. Let that sink in. Millions of people who listen to us, millions of people who agree with us, might disagree with us. It's okay. Robust debate is not permitted. By big tech, by the mainstream media,

We are back with our regular guest lord Conrad black, follow him right now at Conrad and black read his long writings at The Epoch Times in American greatness and also listen to the podcast he co hosts with Victor Davis Hanson and also with Bill Bennett. Listen to it, subscribe today. Lord black, thank you for the assist there. I had a Biden moment there for a second. Let's talk about this specter that we have three years left, constitutionally of this administration. You always are so assiduous in your saying, you're not a psychiatrist. You're not a psychologist. You can't get into the heads of those that we are talking about. However, politically, are there scenarios within which the Democrat party finds rationality or common sense? Because we were playing clips today and yesterday of members of the cabinet saying, yeah, this is a great opportunity. The war with Russia is a great opportunity to get rid of fossil fuels and, oh, you can just buy a Tesla. If not, arrogance detachment from reality and what the average American lives. Is there any way in which suddenly they have a cold shower and act a little bit more reasonably? I think we have to wait for election day for that. I mean, it appears that the and I don't know how this happened and historians well connected with these events or at least capable of ascertaining exactly what happened. We'll have to we'll have to analyze this, but the Democratic Party, which in fairness was under the under president Clinton, for example, it was a center left operation, but it wasn't an extreme or absurdly careless reckless regime. The budget generally and the behavior. I mean, I personally wouldn't have had a vote wouldn't have voted for president Clinton, but you can't say it was an extreme or irrational concept of government that he had. And most of the senior people had were people you could deal with. But a here we have the great Democratic Party taken over by an outright socialist movement infested with anti americanism. I mean, essentially, a self hating movement, but convincing itself that it wasn't self hate. It was, it was patriotism, because it wanted to make America better by curing it of these terrible, horrible

"Coming up on 5 minute news. Ukraine refugees could be key witnesses against Russian abuses. Russian state TV boosts Kremlin lie on invasion. And emails prove Trump lawyer knew delaying Biden's certification was unlawful. It's Friday, March 11. I'm Anthony Davis. More than 2 million Ukrainian refugees have begun to scatter throughout Europe and beyond. Some carrying valuable witness evidence to build a case for potential war crimes. More and more the people who are turning up at border crossings are survivors who have fled some of the cities hardest hit by Russian forces. It was very eerie, said E hor die kov, one of the many people who crossed the urban river outside Kyiv on the slippery wooden planks of a makeshift bridge. The Russians promised to provide a humanitarian corridor which they did not comply with. They were shooting civilians, he said. That's absolutely true. I witnessed it. People were scared. Such testimonies will increasingly reach the world in the coming days, as more people flow along fragile humanitarian corridors. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky on Wednesday said three such corridors were operating from bombarded areas and in all about 35,000 people got out. People left to sue me in the northeast near the Russian border. The suburbs of Kyiv and a narrow Dar, the southern town where Russian forces took over a large nuclear plant. More evacuations were announced on Thursday as desperate residents sought to leave cities where food, water, medicines, and other essentials were running out. In a staggering measure of displacement, Kyiv mayor vitali Klitschko said on Thursday about 2 million people or every second person amongst the capital's residents have left the metro area. In addition to the growing number of refugees, at least 1 million people have been displaced with the Ukraine, the scale of the humanitarian crisis is so extreme that the worst case scenario in the international organization for migrations contingency planning has already been surpassed. Nationwide thousands of people are thought to have been killed across Ukraine, both civilians and soldiers since Russian forces invaded two weeks ago. City officials in the blockaded port city of Mario pole have said 1200 residents have been killed there, including three in the bombing of a children's hospital in Ukraine's second largest city kharkiv, the prosecutor's office has said 282 residents have been killed, including several children. The United Nations human rights office said it has recorded the killings of 516 civilians in Ukraine in the two weeks since Russia invaded, including 37 children. Most have been caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area it said. It believes the real toll is considerably higher, some of the latest refugees have seen those deaths firsthand. Their testimonies will be a critical part of efforts to hold Russia accountable. For targeting civilians and civilian structures, like hospitals and homes. Russia state TV has said that Russian troops are in Ukraine to save people there from neo Nazis and to disarm a country that was preparing to wage war on its own population. The TV reports also say that people across Russia are supporting what the Kremlin calls the special military operation in Ukraine by forming convoys in which cars display the tricolor Russian flags, or they gather in courtyards and form a large letter Z, which has become a symbol of the Russian military. A news anchor at state TV channel Russia 24 rattled off the names of cities holding the demonstrations. It took several days after the start of the February 24th invasion for Russia to gear up the campaign, depicting what it said was widespread public support of the assault. The narrative of Russian standing behind their troops sought to counter spreading anti war sentiment on the home front, with thousands protesting in the streets of Moscow, St. Petersburg and elsewhere, and over a million signing a petition to stop the attack. Political analysts say Russians are indeed rallying around the flag, but the big question is how long such support will last in the face of crippling western sanctions and worsening living conditions, or whether it will eventually translate into increased support for president Vladimir Putin. In seeking to control the narrative, the Kremlin has blocked most of Russia's independent media outlets and forced the rest to halt coverage altogether with threats of prosecution and prison for reporting that deviates from the official line, which includes calling the action a war or an invasion. Interrupting the certification of Joe Biden's election win on the 6th of January last year as part of the scheme to return Donald Trump to office, was known to be unlawful by at least one of the former president's lawyers, according to an email exchange about the potential conspiracy. The former Trump lawyer John eastman, who helped cold and ate the scheme from the Trump war room at the Willard hotel in Washington, conceded in an email to council for Mike Pence, Greg Jacob, that the plan was in violation of the electoral count act. But eastman then urged Pence to move ahead with the scheme anyway. Pressuring the former vice president's council to consider supporting the effort on the basis that it was only a minor violation of the statute that governed the certification procedure. The admission that the scheme was unlawful undercuts arguments by eastman and the Willard warham team that they believed there was no wrongdoing in seeking to have Pence delay the certification passed the 6th of January, one of the strategies they sought to return Trump to power. Its additionally raises the prospect that other members of the Willard war room, including Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani and Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon, were also aware that the scheme to delay or stop the certification was unlawful from the start. The strategy to delay the joint session past January 6th was about buying time for Trump and his team to pressure state legislatures to send Trump slates of electors to Congress on the basis that the Biden slates were illegitimate because of supposed election fraud. The admission is significant since it demonstrates eastman knew the scheme to delay Biden's certification was unlawful, which the select committee believes bolsters its case that he was involved in a conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruct justice.

"Coming up on 5 minute news. U.S. exchanges harsh words with Russia over Ukraine. California governor to dismantle nations largest death row. And judge rejects plea agreement by killers of armored Arbery. It's Tuesday. February 1. I'm Anthony Davis. Russia yesterday accused the west of whipping up tensions over Ukraine and said the U.S. had brought pure Nazis to power in Kyiv. As the UN secretary council held a stormy debate on Moscow's troop buildup near its southern neighbor. U.S. ambassador Linda Thomas Greenfield said that Russia's growing military force of more than a 100,000 troops along Ukraine's borders was the largest mobilization in Europe in decades, adding that there has been a spike in cyberattacks and Russian disinformation. Their attempting without any factual basis to paint Ukraine and Western countries as the aggressors to fabricate a pretext for attack, she said. The harsh exchanges in the Security Council came as Moscow lost an attempt to block the meeting and reflected the gulf between the two nuclear powers. It was the first open session where all protagonists in the Ukraine crisis spoke publicly, even though the UN's most powerful body took no action. In naval exercises in the Black Sea, which started last week, a Ukrainian envoy said the Russians had deployed frigates, battleships, missile ships, assault landing ships, and mine sweepers, another 6 battleships from Russia's northern fleet were reported to have entered the Mediterranean on Monday. It was reported that the vessels were carrying 60 tanks and more than 1500 soldiers, the warships are currently navigating in the Sicilian channel under aerial surveillance from NATO plains. The governor of California, who three years ago, placed a moratorium on executions, is now moving to dismantle the United States's largest death row by moving all condemned inmates to other prisons within two years. The goal is to turn the section at San Quentin State Prison into a positive healing environment. Gavin Newsom said on Monday, it's an outgrowth of his opposition to what he believes is a deeply flawed system, one that gets my blood boiling. The prospect of your ending up on death row has more to do with your wealth and race than it does your guilt or innocence, he said. We talk about justice, we preach about justice, but as a nation, we don't practice it on death row. California, which last carried out an execution in 2006, is one of 28 states that maintain death rows, along with the U.S. government, according to the death penalty information center, while other states like Illinois have abolished executions, California is merging its condemned inmates into the general prison population with no expectation that any will face execution any time in the near future. Oregon similarly transferred its much smaller condemned population to other inmate housing two years ago. Newsom imposed a moratorium on executions in 2019 and shut down the state's execution chamber at San Quentin north of San Francisco. Now, his administration is turning on its head at 2016 voter approved initiative, intended to expedite executions by capitalizing on one provision that allows inmates to be moved off death row. A judge in Georgia has rejected plea agreements reached between federal prosecutors and two of the three white men convicted of murdering armored armory, saying she was not willing to be bound to the 30 year federal prison sentence set in the agreement. The unusual decision by U.S. district judge Lisa wood came after Travis mcmichael, one of the three attackers due to face trial next week on federal hate crime charges admitted for the first time that he had pursued the 25 year old black man because of his race. The decision means the party's must either return to court with the more acceptable deal when the hearing resumes on Friday or prepare next week for a trial. Mcmichael had appeared in the U.S. district court in Brunswick, Georgia, in an attempt to change his plea to guilty, admitting to a charge of using a gun in his attempts to apprehend Arbery because of his race and color, resulting in Arbery's death. His father Gregory mcmichael had also been due to change his plea to guilty as part of an agreement at a subsequent hearing on Monday over the objections of Arbery's relatives, who successfully begged Woods not to accept the deals. The mcmichaels have already faced trial at the state level when they were convicted of murder last November in a court in Brunswick, alongside their neighbor, William Bryan, and sentenced to life in prison. In rejecting the federal agreement, would acknowledge emotional testimony on Monday by Arbery's mother Wanda Cooper Jones and other relatives who begged the judge not to accept the deal. They said they were alarmed that prosecutors had agreed to recommend Michael be transferred to a federal prison for 30 years before returning him to the custody of the Georgia prison system for the rest of his life. Federal prisons are generally perceived as less brutal environments than typical state prisons. Granting these men their preferred conditions of confinement will defeat me. It gives them one last chance to spit in my face after murdering my son. Cooper Jones told the court, the state of Georgia already gave these men exactly what they deserve. Please leave it that way. Assistant U.S. attorney Tara Lion said the government had repeatedly consulted with Arbery's family, and that they had previously not opposed an agreement as the best way to ensure that the mcmichaels would admit race played a role in their crimes and give up their right to appeal a federal conviction.

"Point. God is a production of i heart radio so now i gotta figure out a mathematical formula how i can win. I had to be champi and not only champion but everyone who i've played against what recognize and acknowledge he's that dude back point. God i'm your host two time. Nba all star. Baron davis and this is part too with the legendary point. Ga the oracle the professor. I say a tops at that point. You like all right. We're going to be deep is subordinated but the majority of the offense is going to fall on you right. And what were you thinking about. Let's say going into year four. Like how did you train. You know what i mean. 'cause is that is that year where you like. You know what fuck man i gotta go for. My i can't be sitting back you know has been two years. I've been planning to where they want me to like man like what was what was that because not only did you have to change defensively but you also had to like take on a lot more responsibility right because you're in that category but you want it to be in that category that category that category right so you get into that category is to win right so like in in your remember this 'cause your senior year in high school. You was that due to loan your team right in anytime you want it to. You had the green light you get forty night up but which a win right so for me it. It came down to okay. I cannot uplift. My teammates had cannot make them better Because i know this guy gets fifteen fifteen. This guy gets seven this guy. Get nine this guy you know. It's a lot of scorn now. Reineck stopped all of us. Right right if all of us become a threat then defensively. The opponent ain't good enough to stop all of us absolutely so now. My scorn is going to continue to decrease just like yours had to do. Yeah jimmy you're see who. Yeah when it's not making other people better absolutely right now. The critics in the people who write a battery in the media Forget this when my brother told me said june when they start measuring you against you you got to you know and they were saying why is it. You used the average twenty three points but now you only averaging nineteen in the way i would answer. That question is yet. But that's meet here if they get mad bill you man. I said 'cause you you measured me against me and when you measuring me against me. I'm still win at and i'm better in your team better now. We win games absolutely. He's happier and now we become the juggernaut defensively in offensive. I'm loving all izzy Because as i'm listening to this and as young point guards are listening to this. You know there. There's a moment right where you have to define yourself right. You have to measure up against your greatness right and so you know the first the first three years in the league right you know you get off right but you're not getting all you know what i mean and so you decided that. What is a number when the goal is winning right so so for point guards out here. It's the science right. It's the math in the science when talk about the math and the science. That makes you better and not like. I'm just going to be a better shooter. I'm gonna work on my handles. It's like you already had the game you were you were you were don dada already upper echelon right. You had this mastermind thing right but now you started now going into year. Four right when you decided the stats. Don't measure up to the winds right talk about the math and the science around positioning yourself into that category. Believe that that is a great question. And that is the million dollar question. Because the the the criteria in formula up of measurement that had been established for you to win you know though those those formulas in those numbers only applied to six six in a ball thank you they only apply you know the the measurement field goal for senate up bounden all of that. You know it so forgot who play far away from the rim you know. The rumors have changed. But when i was when i was playing the formula for winning was in front of it was it was for six above guy so so now i gotta figure out a mathematical formula. A how i can win. Not using this formula not using their methodology not using their measurement in terms of. What's good. what's bad but now you really going way off the path right and nobody really understands what you doing. In terms of the people who are judging writing because their criteria of measurement is where you know if you're not shooting fifty five percent from the field and right getting twelve rebounds. This is the formula for winning. Yes so we had to create a different formula for the detroit pistons at to create different formula for ourselves. Were guy like dennis rodman can become valuable. Yes john salley can become valuable. Yes games that words can become valuable. Vinnie johnson dumars lamb beer. None of these guys fit the criteria measurement of success. They were saying. Oh if you have is twenty points and ten rebounds that means you first team all Ride but we had under the right right no you didn't you go up with joan formula. Yes that would you know and understand you. That's all you point guard that was on me. Yes all you right so for for the point guards you know listening right vessel you right. 'cause 'cause you gotta tell james that words right they yo you know you'll fifteen you you'll you'll get in twenty and eleven.

It's thursday january twenty one. I'm anthony davis. Joe biden was sworn in as the forty sixth president of the united states on wednesday. Declaring democracy has prevailed and summoning american resilience and unity to confront the deeply divided nations historic confluence of crises denouncing. A national uncivil. War biden took the oath at the us. Capitol that had been battered by an insurrectionist siege. Just two weeks earlier. Then taking his place at the white house oval office he plunged into a stack of executive actions that began to undo the haunt of his polarizing predescessors agenda on matters from the deadly pandemic to climate change at the capitol with the american tradition of peaceful transfer of power never appearing more fragile. The quadrennial ceremony unfolded within a circle of security forces evocative of a war zone and devoid of crowds. Because of the coronavirus pandemic instead biden gazed out on a cold washington morning dotted with snow flurries to see over two hundred thousand american flags planted on the national mall to symbolize those who could not attend in person. The will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heated. We've learned again. Democracy is precious and democracy is fragile at this hour. my friends. Democracy has prevailed biden declared in his speech. This is america's day. This is democracies day a day in history and hope of renewal and resolve. History was made at his side as kamala harris became the first woman to be vice. President the former. Us senator from california is also the first black person and the first person of south asian descent elected to the vice presidency and the highest ranking woman ever to serve in the us government rare inaugural address president joe biden issued a strong repudiation of white supremacy and domestic terrorism on the rise on the donald trump in his speech biden denounced racism negativism fear demonization. That propels the assault on capitol hill by an overwhelming white mob of trump's supporters who carried symbols of hate including the confederate battle flag biden never mentioned his predecessor who defied tradition and left town ahead of the ceremony but his speech was an implicit rebuke of donald trump. The new president denounced lies told for power and for profit and was blunt about the challenges ahead central among them the surging virus that has claimed more than four hundred thousand lives in the united states as well as economic strains and a national reckoning over race. We have much to do in this winter of peril significant possibilities few people in our nation's history of been more challenged or found a time more challenging or difficult than the time we're in now biden said the absence of biden's predescessor from the inaugural ceremony undescored. The national rift to be healed but a bipartisan trio. Former presidents bill. Clinton george w bush and barack obama with there to witness the transfer of power biden in his third run for the presidency staked his candidacy less on any distinctive political ideology then on galvanizing a broad coalition of voters around the notion that trump posed an existential threat to american democracy for years after trump's american carnage speech painted a dark portrait of national decay biden warned that the fabric of the nation's democracy was tearing but could be repaired swearing the oath with his hand on a five inch thick bible. That has been in his family for one. Hundred and twenty eight years biden came to office with a well of empathy and resolve born by personal tragedy as well as a depth of experience forged for more than four decades in washington
