But it appears that some quietly took their case to Senator Don Buckingham. There are Rick what? Lakeway, Republican. And Buckingham.

Breezy, Nice warm day High Today at 82 Partly cloudy, breezy for tonight. No 47 Tomorrow partly sunny way of the high at 60 and then Sunshine. Nice Day on Saturday behind 67 from the Weather Center. I'm Steve Williams. This segment brought 7 17 Todd Jeffries and don Price Everybody here all the time of Don show s O Texas business owners well, they're concerned about an expected increase in their payments into the unemployment Trust fund. You know, the Texas Workforce Commission official, James Burson says the rates must go up this year. We've had six years of unemployment claims in the last nine months. So that is going it's reversed. Exhausted the unemployment Trust times we've had to resort to federal loans. And so eventually those replenishment rates and the obligate rates are going to have to make up. Those funds that you raise for business owners will be announced sometime between now and April. They'll probably wait until April is they try to figure this out and, you know, kind of debate the issue some business owners, they're worried about the effect it'll have on their run struggling budgets. Well, that certainly puts things in perspective. Six years of unemployment claims in a period of nine Months. That's how concentrated this has been. Yeah. I mean, you can't help but to have a major increase this one. This system was created to help people that did lose their gee, absolutely right, And I'll be honest with you. This is gonna be a hard argument for the business owners to fight. No, it is because these were the terms. He's where the agreement. This is the law, and it'll be hard for these business owners to push against that when so many people have you lost the job, the it's got to be made up and it has to happen fast, and it's gonna be a child. Can. It's gonna hurt and it's just it is what it is because I say so. We don't even need to be debating this issue. If people would just go back to work if they just allowed the economy to completely open up, But of course that's up to us to is consumers. We have to also get back to those businesses ourself. Neither is part There is good news. This is from all the jobs front from ADP. The private payrolls re mounted in January is cos added 174,000 new jobs after shutting them in the 1st 1st time since April In the prior month, ADP Research Institute reported that health care and socialist distance jobs led the games, which also extended to lease you're in hospitality and industry long pummeled by this pandemic that took hold in the spring and prompted widespread business shut down. Some 10.7 million Americans remain unemployed and more than five million You know, above that pre contagion level. A separate gauge of growth in service industries showed the fastest expansion in almost two years. Just last month, led by real estate, housing markets. Moment, man rental and leasing and construction. Yeah, I guess, building those homes leasing those homes, So you've got a lot of people moving across the country. I, um uh, listen Where I am now, And maybe it's not a popular place to be for for a lot of people. But the reality with me is if someone tells me a tous point in the game, this point this far into the pandemic and this in the economy being shut down when I'm talking to somebody. I've talked to many people. Friends. Not necessarily, for instance, appointments whoever my family members and they tell me these perfectly healthy people that Yeah, we're still not going back to restaurants yet. I have to really bite my tongue. If they say we're not going to restaurants, we're not going to businesses. I have to really, really bite my tongue. Maybe it's none of my business. But at the same time, I think it is my business because it does affect me because that affects the economy at this point. If you're not helping keep this economy propped up as much as you can, and you're perfectly healthy and perfectly capable. I mean, I thought I think I'm this close to becoming probably not bite my tongue and go ahead and speaking out in lecturing people, and it's probably not gonna go well, What do you think? That's where? Why would you do that anymore? Can't you just keep your eyes on your own paper? Because again, it does affect me. Because if you're not, if you're not helping support business in any way you can right now it does affect me because it affects the overall economy. So I'm losing my patience. I'm losing my patience with people that at this point in time are not going and sitting down in a restaurant and they're perfectly healthy, perfectly healthy. And you're still so damn freaked out by all of this What the media has put in your head that you're not going in about to lose my patients where I'm gonna start. Saying things to people that I might regret in the Kim might make us leave. It is 7 21 as investors and the public catch their breath and start to analyze the game stops. Stock Market Sanga. The conversation is turning to what comes next ideas for reform, especially in the regulatory policy arenas are now emerging and becoming a subject of debate. So what should be the next step for regulators in this industry is if reform is needed, and where should it begin? 51283605 90 is reform needed in regards to this game Stop saga. 51283605 90. So Florida Republican Governor Ron Descent US. He proposes a daily $100,000 fine for big tech companies that deep platform political candidates. Governor to Santos was on Fox, saying that this is as a fine is an effort to help protect Americans and their First Amendment rights over the last particularly for five years, Isa. They've turned from a liberating platforms into enforcers of the preferred narrative, and so they're colluding with some of those failed legacy outlets. To try to enforce this prescribed narrative, And that obviously means that you have a lot of conservatives that get left out on that. There you go. Now. Tech companies have criticized such proposals, saying they amount to the government in a fair it's and how private companies are actually run. That's out of Florida. Their descent is getting tough on big tech well. It is, uh, you know, reaching areas of power that we can't even get our heads around and it it can be a pretty pretty scary pretty scary if you let yourself really think about what what's possible here and you know, it's hard to know where it's all gonna go. But ultimately we can't have. We can't have one or two major. Companies that control essentially control the whole world that that that's the possibility that we're looking at here. Also in the news this morning, the Senate is gearing up for President Trump's impeachment trial. Former President Trump He's now a citizen. Here's Fox reporter Chad Berger this question about calling witnesses and maybe dragging this out. That could backfire a number of ways on Democrats. It would extend the trial. That's for sure. Keep in mind that Democrats want toe hold former President Trump accountable, but they also want to pass.

Listen, uh congressional Republicans are looking to include big tech in an upcoming probe into another social media platform. Republicans on the House Oversight Committee said any FBI investigation into the role parlor played in the capital riot earlier this month should also include Facebook and Twitter. This after committee chair Carolyn Maloney last week asked the FBI to investigate parlors role as a quote. Potentials facilitator of planning or inciting violence at the Capitol on January 6. But Republicans on the committee pointed to other social media platforms, saying Facebook, Twitter and Parlor quote seemed to all share blame and allowing their platforms to be used to plan for the events at the Capitol claiming parlor is only being singled out due to its reputation for having conservative users Now why it's a result of the those riots we had in our nation's capital.

It certainly wasn't their idea. That's for sure. ISAT a platform that people used to communicate. Yeah. Guess it was, but but it's almost like it wants to take some of the blame off of the actual people had this dumb idea to do this to begin with. And it seems like a lot of those folks just aren't getting the negative attention that they should. I guess it's much easier to focus on names that we all recognize, like Facebook and parlor. Yeah. It is. You may be right 6, 37 and s O this this story about them with this new approach that the city of Boston is trying to, you know, dabble with when it comes to our homeless crisis that continues to grow, Gonna buy a couple new hotels this week going to propose, you know some new ideas for moving homeless people at a certain areas, but moving him to an area where they are okay to be wherever that is. It doesn't to be honest. It's It doesn't sound like a solution. There's still homeless even when they're in transitional housing. There's still homeless when they live in your selected campground. They're not gonna live in those hotels forever. If they ever do get in those hotels to begin with. We still haven't seen much. Proof of that happening here is the mayor of the City Council this week has on its agenda by two more motels, which is about 150 units of permanent supportive housing. I don't know. I mean, before you buy a couple more hotels shouldn't the other ones before, Right? Does that make sense? Actually, let's go. Look, the other three or four you bought first before you buy more. Since we're paying millions of since I'm paying millions of dollars for this, we all are I millions of dollars over the proposed or the You know the perceived value of that property. That's what it appears to be. I would like some good Good proof that what you've done so far makes a difference, and I don't have any confidence and all I see is something like they used some kind of don't know it doesn't make them feel better when our homeless problem gets worse, just by hotel, some kind of real, you know, real estate, retail therapy or something? I don't know. I think the city of Austin's action when they repealed the homeless ordinances. Has made the problem so bad that it may not be fixable. Yeah, yeah, may not be fixed. Well, here's the mayor just spend even more attention on emergency and rapid rehousing so that we can do a better job of managing the spaces in the city that should be shared. Now he won't go there. But it sure does sound like he's admitting We're not doing a very good job and have its done a bit. Sounds like he's admitting fault resolution coming to counsel that starts looking at particular locations so that we can start Holding campaign strategies to deal with the challenges that we see and work to get people out of those places and into better places. Now, some of the location's gonna target first that you're still trying to determine. I think we have an idea of which locations are going to target first, some of the some of the biggest eyesores in town where you have the most people camping in one location under a bridge. You are close to a main road. Ben White Man shot Rivers, Riverside. We could go on and on, but they have not pinpointed those. Locations just yet, as we hear from K I. Nothing is off the table. That's Austin's new homeless strategy. Officer Diana Great Monday she updated counsel on the state of homelessness in the city. Most council members acknowledged that the problem has grown and something needs to be done immediately. I think everyone recognizes that we have to take action. Council member in Kitchen says she's confident the new homeless encampment assistants link or he'll initiative will help get people off the streets. If approved, people camping in four categorized locations, including near major streets or under overpasses, will be moved to other locations starting in February. The goal is to eventually connect.

"Jeffries and don Price. How about that? Ladies and gentlemen, you have found the tide of Don. Yes, sir. We're here. So the U. S. Congress has certified the electoral college votes. They gave Democrat Joe Biden his presidential victory after a day in Washington that was marred by some pro testing and protesters storming the U. S. Capitol. Vice President Mike Pence, who announced that he would not overturn the will of the voters. He confirmed the Biden victory at 3 41 early this morning, Eastern time, Long day, long day long day. But lawmakers had returned to the chamber and an act of defiance with some Republicans, who initially vowed to challenge state results to devote a fraud concerns, announcing that they would instead vote to certify the protesters scared him away. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell. He called the breach of the capital of failed insurrection, adding that those who tried to disrupt our democracy did not succeed. Republican representative Brian Mast. He was on Fox just a few minutes ago. This must have happened right on the tales of me walking off the floor. I spoke. I walked off the floor. Nothing was going on. And by the time I walked five minutes to my office, this was playing out on the television bearing out on the television. So it must have happened really directly on my heels. But I really feel like I need to say this. The day is going to be Filled with speculation about that attack yesterday, and it is a huge regret. Holy unpatriotic un American, But I feel like the thing that I wish would be remembered about January. 6 2021 was the fact that democracy the pride of our country was literally attacked. And hours later, way resumed the Democratic process that do you take so much pride in that I wish that was what would be remembered about yesterday. Well, that's true. It's not. There will be one of the things but it's not in Congressman. I vividly remember you after the RNC walking out And you lost both your legs in battle, and people were screaming at you Challenging. And you those were the those Those were riders. They wanted to create chaos. They were targeting Republicans. Why did I think Trump's supporters would never do something like that. Do you believe that you saw a different side of Trump supporters? Yes, Absolutely. And I think you know you said, Why do you believe that? I think it goes really to the heart of what you just quoted Dan Bongino, one of my neighbors, one of my constituents saying, You know, we have this this set of principles this set of rules. We don't push aside and as conservatives we uphold that you don't expect to see us treat our country like antifa to spray paint things to knock things over toe tip over barriers and to climb over walls and to break windows into attack are literally our capital law enforcement or any other law enforcement. You don't expect to see that. Of conservatives and it is disgraceful that you see that that's represented Brian Mast just a few minutes ago on Fox News, there you go.

I mean, this is you know, this is getting really out of hand. If you think about it, yeah, with cases sharply rising. Some hopeful news in the Corona virus vaccine is, you know, is it We're getting closer to actually getting it out there, too. Some of those frontline workers, but Gavin Newsom and a few other states, they're talking about shutting down even more to stop the spread. California's been practically shut down this whole time. They they can't control it. Whatsoever with shutdowns. I mean, you have these businesses that invested a bunch of money and outdoor dining, and then all the sudden you take the outdoor dining away from by the way, there's no data indicates outdoor dining is dangerous. No, there's no doubt of the indicates just being outside is dangerous at all. No, Jason is the owner of a restaurant in California that's called Slap Fish Serious. Nothing says, Take my rules less seriously than not following your own rules, right? And this most recent move, which obviously, you know that kind of distilled down from the top Because, after Gavin Newsom's 15 20 course hypocrisy dinner at the French laundry eating indoors, eating without masks on groups of over 20 when the day before, he said, don't do all the things I'm about to do. And now they banned outdoor dining, which, actually, there is no science, saying that you should ban outdoor dining so that that one the science is unequivocally. Everybody agrees that there's no reason you should be banning outdoor dining, But then they still going dine outdoors. Yeah, So there you go. In L. A county. That's where they had. The L. A county supervisor visited a restaurant eight outdoors just hours after she had voted to ban outdoor dining by the way, but it's such a stupid Stupid, You know, Attempt T control a damn thing. It is based on nothing. Outdoor dining. Come on, and then they've got things spread out. It's like I said, Man, cities and governors all across this country, man, they're picking the winners and the losers. Big box there the big winners and mom and pop. They're the big losers in all of this happen if you did some contract tracing, I bet you could trace a lot of Kobe to infections back to big box stores. I bet you could. Maybe that's why everybody's going. Well. Listen, of course, their own households their own households. Yeah, listen. Anu UT Medical School study shows that Cupid pandemic spiked the number of families experiencing food insecurity. No, no, no, no, no, no. The shutdowns led to more food insecurity. People, not people losing their jobs led to insecurity. Not today, not the virus. But the reaction to the virus led to food and security. In other words, they're you know, people that have never been in a food line in their first in their life, finding themselves in the food line absolutely well, the school's Dr Megan Gray says basically about 70% of families in July, did not know if they would run out of food before the next paycheck. The percentage has since dropped about 47%. But she says residents need to step up the short term. The central Texas Food Bank is doing amazing work. So I would say Giving to that organization would be probably the number one thing you could do, Dr Gray says, extended protections and snap benefits that also helped as well. There you go. I just I just want to rip my hair out. We'll already did. But what I have left I mean, none of this stuff makes any sense. And it is every day goes by in this pandemic world this this shutting down of the economy and out doing Maura of it. Going back to it is the most senseless, stupid, moronic move. That is that is just putting so many lives literally in danger, let families their futures in danger. Whole whole, uh, you know, lives being destroyed by this. They also many cases and then the overall death rate is the very same as it was last year says a lot, doesn't it? Listen It looks like math may be taking the biggest hit for students third through eighth grade since this pandemic started, according to a new study come through data about four million students and found every elementary middle school students have fallen measurably behind in math, while most appear to be progressing, Okay in reading. Coronavirus. Four schools across the country to abruptly closed back in March and moved online and the divide is even greater. Now it's been exacerbated by this this virus and the reaction to the virus. Kids falling behind in math. It may take years to catch up. I don't know what aspect of math is is more difficult by doing it online. I don't ask me but but obviously there's an aspect of it. That's just not working. And a lot of it makes sense is force just on having the one on one instruction. I guess some things people. Some kids need that one on one instruction. Just just that we all learn a different way simply that, But one of the problems also is we've seen with online education. A lot of these kids. Just order even logging on and in some cases, yes, and that's too many. And that's also another added, You know thing for the teachers to have to mess with us far as having to check with the parents and the and the kids. Weren't you logging on? What's going on? This is actually meant a lot of extra work for the teachers as well. Which has just been nothing but a distraction. Yeah, absolutely takes away from the you know the the entire learning process. 6 39 and It's a bitter cold morning. Monday night. Last night's Austin dipped into the coldest temperatures we've had this winter season, and the city is working to safely shelter people without spreading covert 19. People. Have you heard of a spread of the virus amongst the homeless community? I have not think their immune systems are so strong, dude, everything that the way they live and what they did. I think I think turn good shape. Apparently. You think about it. Yeah. I mean, Yeah, well, people without a place to go. We'll have more heartbreaking choices between shelter and staying on the streets on. Here's a quote from Kate more the vice president for a strategic planning. And partnership with Echo ending Community Homelessness coalition Do they go in and risk perhaps getting sick and the way they can stay warm or that a, you know, stay out in the cold and unsheltered in that in that environment, That's the question that, she says many of our trying to answer organizations helping people experiencing homeless, working to meet the same needs and different in a different way, admits this pandemic Echo and the partner agencies. They say they're doing what they can to help keep people safe. So they've opened up some of those cold shelter spots last night to get people out of the weather between 204 100 people could utilize the city's cold weather shelter last night. It's the first time the city has opened the cold weather shelter during this pandemic. From 6 to 8 P.m. Monday people seeking shelter they're supposed to visit the Central Library, Cesar Chavez. Or ah, covert 19 assessment. I guess they're gonna test everybody Is that what they're going to do before they allow him to stay there, and after completing assessment, they'll be shuttled to area recreation centers. I've heard absolutely no no issues with covert whatsoever in the homeless community. I have heard nothing regarding that. So maybe there are some solid scientific reasons for that again, the immune system, whatever. But I think it's interesting the way they open up these recreation centers Just don't cold Night stone cold nights. 1283605 90, Thailand Don show so kind of email from a listener just a few days ago, asking if this soda weight loss program really works.

"Conditions under 30 for Todd Jeffries and don Price Get wrong the tide of Don show Let's give them some techniques it is brought to you by nerds in a flash will not since the relationship status button was added to Facebook Has there been This much intense focus on social media sites. Yesterday, Twitter kept the issue of curtailing misinformation. Top of mind by taking down tweets from Scott Atlas. What President Trump's top Corona buys Virus Task Force members. That was tweeted questioned. The efficacy of wearing mask reading mask work know is what he tweeted out. So when I decided to be the arbitrator of what's real and what's not in the news out there, and they blocked several a servant of type of, you know, talking heads and pundits this morning. Woke up with their Twitter accounts frozen and locked social media companies. They have danced, tiptoed, they flip flopped in contentious issues of content moderation of the past few weeks. Here is some of the some of the biggest developments. It was What was it Wednesday, The Twitter locked The New York Post accounts and blocked users from sharing that that post story about Joe Biden son Hunter Biden, The New York Post still has Ah, block to Twitter account this morning. The company said the article contained a hacked materials. Facebook's also took steps to limit the distribution of the article because it could potentially contain misinformation. Not sure how they have determined that it was hacked materials. I don't think anybody saying attack materials anymore came from that repair shop Thursday, Twitter double down in temporarily locked the official Trump campaign account. Or tying, trying to share that post article. YouTube also announced new policies designed to limit the sharing of conspiracy theory. Content usedto justify RIA World violence primarily aimed at that. Q on non conspiracy group. Now Friday, it's the best Tony Hawk impression. Twitter pooled, Ah, wondering 81 80 on the New York Post article allowing users to share it and changing its policies that it used to block the article in the first place. They're dancing man. They are dancing sure are now there's been a lot of talk about this section 2 30 in the Communications Decency Act. Yeah, the controversial law that grant social media platforms sweeping protection from user generated content in its spotlight again is the U. S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said. Last week, the court should look for the right case to begin scaling it back now. While there is bipartisan support for reform, the differing motives behind each party's distaste for section 2 30 Republicans claim the law allows these platforms to exhibit anti conservative bias. While Democrats see it does not do enough delimit hate speech make it unlikely Any legislation will pass before the election. That's for sure. I don't think they're going to move fast on any of this. Well, The bottom line is with the election day. What 15 days away, the role of social media in America's democratic process has become one of the defining issues of this campaign. No doubt about it. I'm just what I'm not sure really. It's amazing at some of these social media folks that they're determining they think they think they know what's right. And what's wrong and that the that the final word Ah, so the fact that it's out there that you know from one of Trump's people that no mess Don't work in Twitter says No, that's wrong, and they shut it down there. They're the arbiter of what's right. And what's wrong. Guess so of what is right. And what is wrong. That that's extraordinary are private businesses, right? I mean something bigger than that. Now it's it's it's you know, a big news source they operate sometimes is his utility and actors sometimes is media outlets. I think it's you know, something that needs to be at least debated right? It needs to be debated. Absolutely. But it's not their position in the world to determine that that they're the final word of what's correct and what's not. Well, if they own a business, don't they have the right to say what information is on their business? I think, Sean their market if you will. The Marquis of Twitter is the Twitter feed itself. I mean, If you owned a restaurant, and you want to put things on your marquee. Shouldn't you have the right to do that? And then let the customers decide. Yeah, but But the problem is is we talked about last week. They've gone beyond that. They're so big that their influence is tremendous. Their influence is tremendous, and they are part of our lives. It's where people literally lived. It's part of of the world that they literally and because of that, and because of that, they should be regulated More. Maybe. So. I think maybe we're getting to that point where we have it is 6 39, and you could jump in here if I've won 283605 to get that story in my linked in page a Todd Jeffries Officials in the scenes I SD have now confirmed that the Westlake High School football program is is on hold and on all levels for a week after four people tested positive.

Google, Seeing what is packing the Supreme Court mean as the most searched question about the Supreme Court. Christian Goodwin Fox news, But there you go get that story on my linked in page at Todd Jeffries. So after AH campus safety group called for help following an increasing crime this week near the U. T campus Governor Greg Abbott says he plans to increase DPS presence in that area. The governor says a recent string of robberies in the West campus area including a violent home invasion, Are unacceptable in the state will not tolerate this kind of crime in our communities. The Austin Police Department says it's investigating after reports of an aggravated robbery that has been targeting female UT students who primarily or walking alone at night. There's been at least four incidents what happened on the 13 in a block of crossings place on October the fifth by 11 O'clock. And then on October, the sixth were a couple of attacks. One was about one o'clock in the morning and the other about three o'clock in the morning, Talking about 25th near Leon Street, the 700 block of West 24th Street. And primarily in the West campus area, and the kids were calling for help. And I guess Austin police are a DPR UT campus police. I guess that's not their jurisdiction. So the state had to move into offer some some safety Yeah, for these young people, and I think it says a CZ were saying earlier. I think this is also sending a very big message to HPD oil more no counsel to counsel. Yeah. That listen, we will step in and we will make sure that the citizens of Austin or safe this may be one of those precursors of moving a PT under the the reign of deal, right? Yes, this didn't something the governor has talked about. You know, that will happen in the next legislative session, which I support fully. And this This was a case of yet were here. What would it want to let UT police and a p d know that we're here to assist in any way when needed? No, it's it's get out of the way. If you all are going to take care of it, we're going to take care of it. I just wondered what those students on the U T campus that are involved in some of these protests. Who want to defund, you know, abolish police. What do they think about the other kids on campus that want the police for their protection? Right? Right. Hey, here's a little bit of Ah little bit more life experience for you some perspective on why you need police are a jump in here at 51283605 90. Loes is going to be handing out an additional $100 million in bonus money on it's already employees as housebound Americans. Can you display urge at the home improvement centre about that? Yeah, the hardware and homewares giant is reaping the benefits of the remote work boom. And has handed its workforce an additional 675 million and extra pay and bonuses so far this year, as well as bopping up full time pay by $2 an hour back in April. This full time, hourly workers will get a $300 bonus. While part time employees and staff seasonal workers they're gonna $150 bonus. WalMart has given workers three rounds of bonuses, while Target and Kroger have also shared increase revenue. With employees in recent months for them. These folks have been on the frontlines the whole dang time absolutely good for them, but it also highlights the winners and choosers. That's that our governments have chosen The winner is being the big box stores, the losers, mom and pop businesses there. I have no problem with these employees making money, not nothing at all. But it does highlight the difference when it comes to picking the winners and losers during the reaction to this pandemic. True, Yeah, they, you know, I think the only thing that Home Depot Lowe's have felt through this whole thing is just Better and better business. And while the mama pops who lent, you know, just looking at our situation here in Austin, who have local government who's saying nothing doing absolutely nothing to support you in any way, shape or form, in fact, discouraging outright discouraging. People in Boston to not go to small business. Yeah, just scaring people away from you. There's just maybe maybe not saying that specifically, But just the fear tactics has definitely heard a lot of folks. Well, I You know, I would. I would say that our mayor on occasion has pretty much said Don't go Don't know I'm not, you know, he says, I'm not going with Dr Scott had to say this week about the holidays. Don't do anything. Just stay with your circle of family that you've been with already. No trick or treating. Don't worry about Thanksgiving. Don't get together in big groups. Yeah, just just cancel it. Bah! Humbug! Sir! Get rescue instead of getting with people you love Get with your family, right? I see. That's what he's saying. All right. Well, that sounds great. That's like a hoot. I just wonder what trick or treating is going to be like that. You could put a bucket on the front porch, right? I mean, My parents could walk down the street with their kids in that group and stick their hand in a bucket and get some candy bars. We just do a bowl of water. Yeah, just help yourself to some refreshing tap water. Listen, it gets to the people get thirsty out there. How many? I don't know how many IBM employees we have in town. I mean, IBM used to be Ah, major player when it comes to the economy here in Austin, tons of employees. I don't know what they were at the peak of what they are today, but The International Business Machines company is planning to split itself into two public company says that focuses on areas like cloud computing an artificial intelligence, They say the move will mark the biggest ever business exit. For the century old tech giant spinning off slower growth unit that manages corporate computer systems and their CEO says the company is redefining the future of IBM, which Plans to become a leader and hybrid clouds, software and services that allow clients to store data. That's the big, huge push has been for a wild in the digital world. That cloud storage of data your dad in some cases? Yeah. All data and IBM could be slipping up as part of that. So I'm not quite sure how many how many employees they have here in town anymore, but quite a few. Why? Yeah. I mean, you had the big IBM campus out on Burnett Road there, and I have no idea but I'm a long way away from that world, but they were certainly a massive player here. For a long time. They were. Why Why years Listen, it is 6 40. We've got traffic and weather straight ahead. But I'm just I'm just curious. Why did it take the you know so long? I mean, why does it take the governor's step in to keep the people of Boston safe? I think that's embarrassment. I think that's something the governor or at least I mean, the mayor should have something to say about you think that's kind of embarrassing for the city. Why does it take the the mayor so long to step in? I'm sorry. Why? Why does it take the governor to step in to keep us safe? I got you. The mayor should respond to that. I think it's kind of embarrassment for the city. Can it ISS and they scream. It's all about public safety. But yet Some people had to get hurt. So people had to get robbed at gunpoint. There had to be a home invasion and we had to get the governor involved my whole life living here My whole 32 years. I tell you I have never, ever experienced Austin or heard of also being you know, I just don't feel safe going here. I don't feel safe going there that says this is a new phenomenon here on and it's it's not good. It's not good, obviously. Well, I think I think this is city is still a safe city. I think I think yes, but it's not safe. There. Place is definitely parts of town in certain times a day. I mean, good night. I used to play music every single week every week downtown on six Street or somewhere downtown. Not think twice about it. Not think twice about now. It's like hell no. Hell, no eso something he's lazy. Some students. They're saying they just don't feel safe on campus. We'll hear from some of those, and we'll also get some reaction from Qin Cassidy from the Austin Police Association straight ahead. Right here on the Todd and don show Todd and don show The folks at lifestyles and limited want to remind you that through this whole pandemic and everything else going on that real estate is still going strong, big.

"Jeffries and don Price Oh no. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and White House Chief of staff Mark Meadows. They plan to speak later today. And possibly restarting negotiations on the much needed Corona virus stimulus package that's been installed over the past three weeks. They're going to get together at 2 30 this afternoon, according to sources and maybe meet at the White House, and we're told it will mark the first time that Pelosi well, I've spoken to the White House negotiators about the pandemic really package since August, 7 will. I hope everybody plays nice. I hope they do to just have a smile. And you just be polite. Well, you know, they are completely in different ends of this this time. Of stimulus. Yeah, House Democrats, they passed a massive $3.4 trillion package back in May, it was rejected by the Republicans in the White House and Senate, Senate Republicans offered a $1.1 trillion package, including 10 billion for the Postal Service. But metals is pushing for uneven, slimmer bill so they're going to try to get together and talk again. On meadows. He's been trying to jump start the talks with Pelosi for several days. In fact, last weekend after meeting with rank and file lawmakers on Capitol Hill Meadows, he dropped by the speaker's office unannounced to try, Teo, you know, Wow, say some nice things, and I want to talk about this later. What do you think? Did you bring cookies, right? You know, I really have to think that right now The Democrats have to be sweating it in general. After these just amazing first three nights of the of the RNC I It's been so strong. Andi with such a positive message, and I can't help but think there's got to be watching going. Wow. We kind of we kind of blew. It dropped the ball, and we kind of took the wrong angle on this because I I have a feeling if you looked at ratings numbers total number of viewers I don't know this for a fact. But But my gut tells me that it's been farm or for the RNC that it was for the DNC. I've seen a couple of stories out there. That kind of offer mixed ratings. Some say the Democrats had better ratings. Republicans had better ratings. I don't think you should look at it like that. I mean, it's I mean, do you think only Republicans watch the RNC Convention and on Lee Democrats watched The Democrats. No, no, it's it's hard to use that as an example. No, but but I will say that Maura, the Democrats convention was broadcast on television. Was it? Well, I watched from last night. Watch from? I don't know a about seven o'clock on on Fox. But I found the DNC completely unwatchable. I couldn't. I couldn't do it. I couldn't do it like I don't want to sit here and let's feel I don't sit here and feel bad. Yeah, and that's the way everybody felt. There was no bump in the polls for the Democrats at all on this to me. I think there's format the way they've been doing. It is probably to me it's been maybe more effective than the white Conventions used to be. They were forced to do it this way for obvious reasons, but I think it's just cut out a lot of the distractions. Ah, lot of you know, there's less time with with moderators and commentators and, you know, it's just it's people speaking and having their moment and that's it. And it's been very, very real pleasure. What? Of course again. We're all searching for that positive Anything right now, So it's been. It's been good to see all the positivity. Yeah Way talk about in the world of business, The hotels that have really taken a hit over the past several months yet you know the big hotels, especially those ones around convention centers like because when convention centers are empty, so the neighboring hotel where you go But the roadside motel has become the king of the road. Yeah, this is pretty interesting, Mary. It's become a Mary. Not between 1960 Foreign 2012 the number of U. S motels. Shrank from about 61,000 to 12,000 out there. But with this pandemic that's affecting us.

"Welcome to the Todd and don show we're live, and we want you to join us. At 51283605 90 Now. Here are Todd and 605 times, Jeffries and don Price. Hey, stay with us. Got the rush update coming up in just a few minutes here. Want to run through some of these covert numbers we got this morning because We've learned some pretty interesting things overnight. Let's first begin. Donald, if we could, with the Travis County numbers after some light upward movement, Travis County number of hospitalized patients in the E U is now below 100 again. 279 patients told law hospitalized of 98 of whom require icy you treatment and over the course of the past five months, 23,249 cases have been discovered. And overwhelming of those, you know our recovery's. As of today, the recovery number. Travis County is just above 22,000. The majority. Yeah, and it's pretty interesting. You heard the story there. In Patrick's news we heard from Dr Jason Pick it about About 1/2 hour ago. Austin's public health is urging businesses to scale back requirements that employees who have previously tested positive to get multiple Coben 19 tests. Officials say that is not part of the CDC is guidance and doing so actually limits available testing inventory and creates unnecessary cost burden for your foreign employees. You're right. It also inflates the positive test result numbers. It is determining everything right now about opening businesses are closing businesses and restrictions and things like that determining futures. Yeah. You know, in many cases to storing futures, right? Yeah, it's ah, Another example of how When we get these numbers, you have tio not react. You gotta think about it. You've got to think about it. It's a manipulations. Deception is what it and don't let don't don't let it get to you. Don't let it manipulate your thinking is the person you let's say you're a waiter at a restaurant. You test positive. Okay? You go home. You stay away for about 23 weeks. So you're missing work and all that stuff on and then you want to go back to work and you go back and you test positive and they say, Stay away. Yeah. According to Dr Jason Picket, that person is fine there there on the road to recovery in there, okay to go back to work. Bob, but that the the other issue is they go back and get tested again and they test positive and those positive numbers are added to the database that the county's air using to shut things down. Now Williamson County, the latest active case count climbs upward again now at 1279 76 people hospitalized in Williamson County. That's an increase of six from a day ago. But the county still has ample bed space within the hospital system, including icy, you beds. 5637. People have fully recovered in what you've said County, which is a job upward of 45 from this time a year ago. Now there's also something new out of Williamson County. When it comes to you know the spike in numbers. You know, yesterday they were really concerned about a spike. And we learned that this number out of Williamson County. Well, the numbers don't really give us a real clear picture. Because some of these numbers, you know the spike that we reported yesterday. Well, Williamson County as they addressed this spike they've seen Within a week's time of more than 660 new cases added to the list, But now it appears, you know that you shouldn't be alarmed because the county says most of that is tied to a backlog of test results from the state lab. Dating back to June. Ah ha ha ha! So it's not really a new case. In fact, it should be added to the fully recovers. Sure cases it's just something. Now that's coming to light its Treasury. It's deception. It's AH, it's it's confusing. And it leads people, Teo, you know, make the wrong decisions about how to protect themselves in their family in their business, Right, Right, Right, Right, sjust out coming delights like a star that exploded billions of years ago in the lights just now getting here. But the stars Long gone 609 and time for the Rush update someone, according to the Los Angeles Times editorial Board, all the evidence points to one conclusion. It is too late, folks. We humans dragged our feet for too long. Global warming is here, and it's impossible to undo. We're doomed. As a result, we're going to face more extreme heat, longer droughts, more ferocious hurricanes and other horrible climate events that will threaten the global food supply and more migrants. As people are forced to leave their scorched earth homes in order to survive an hour scorched earth homes now to cope with all of this horror we humans were going to change our ways. Governments around the world must get rid of fossil fuel. We must turn to renewable energy We must sign on the more global warming, money grabs, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. The usual drivel. But.

How about this Six year old boy They heard about this morning's that he In fact, I was just reading about this. Yeah. This This happened several of sevens over about a week ago. I guess Bridger Walker. What? Unnamed Bridger. Yeah, that's a cool name. There you go. Kids destined to be a general. That's a hero's name rapidly. A superhero. That's for sure is you're Walker. He is six years, young. Held is a hero for protecting his four year old sister from a dog attack. You've seen the pictures, right? Yes, Horrific, heartbreaking. What? The little boy his sister. They went their friend's house in Wyoming earlier this month when they one year old German shepherd mix. Whatever they say German shepherd mix. I wonder what the other mixes. What is it? Rottweiler is a pit bull. I think it's always going to find out right away. This one year old German shepherd mix lunged at them while they were outside in the backyard without thinking. Bridger, the six year old hero. He stepped in front of his sister to protect her and the dog attacked him bit him in the face have 90 stitches. His parents, Robert, until you Walker. They said in a statement that he's still recovering from home. But what's really cool is a lot of celebrities. Captain America the Incredible Hulk. You know, from all the movies we've had recently they've been reaching out to Bridger. And in fact, Captain America sent him a shield. Oh, yeah, a captain, A real Captain America and this kid Burger Walker. Eyes. A huge captain America fan. Yeah, he was. I saw the video yesterday where he was in the Captain America. Costis and I got a video from Who's the actor of the place in the plague. Captain America, Right? Chris Evans. I'm not sure I'm not sure. I'm not sure she's not Chris Evans. Yeah, that's his name and apparently his and asked him Why did you jump in front of your sister? And he said, Well, if someone had to die it, it should have been made. I mean, Wow, We don't have enough of that. You know, You know what some people might call that? I mean, if that kid was if that kid was 30 you know what I mean. There might be some some people on the 40 acres that would refer to him as As as a hero, of course, but they may refer to him as having toxic masculinity. That's a dangerous thing, right? This kid is well on his way to have toxic mask. Yeah, yeah, the six year old Bridger Walker, which will which we need more masculinity. We need well, more young man to step up and be men like that. This kid you and you know that I've been looking at a lot of photos of this kid after the attack and before the attack with the sister. Obviously, he was very, very close to a sister very tight. It looked like they were. They were really, really best friends, and I was just thinking of all the videos we see now because there's video, everything is videotape. So how many examples can you think of him like in New York City, For example, when someone falls on the sub accidentally falls on the subway track, for example, how many people are just standing there, Choosing to film versus jump out and get the person at you know, the Or someone is being attacked and all the people that used to stand there and film versus jump in and try to do something about it. It's seven's Thie Avenger actor. He's sending Ah, really Captain America's Shield. Actress and half the way she wrote on Instagram. I'm not an adventure, but I know a superhero when I see one boom. I can only hope I'm half his brave is in my life as you are in yours, wishing you Ah, easy, easy recovery and many, many cool looking rocks. Apparently Bricker likes to collect rocks. Yeah, Is he? In fact, I saw a picture of his polished rock collection. A collection reminded me. I used to do that when I was a kid as well Not jump in front of Ah Someone being attacked by a dog but polish rocks. I hope I would hope that I would react as as he did in this situation. But But the fact is a lot of us have no idea what we would do until we're in the moment. I would hope that's that's how brave I would be a swell, but honestly, I can't promise I can't promise. But I gotta go now and I got faith in. Let's just hope I would. You're a good guy to tell you the parents. They said in a statement that they want to share their story to help cheer. Cheer him up. Yeah. You were so appreciative. All the kind words love and prayers extended the love and support we received. It astounds us. They also think the doctors spokesperson for the hospital didn't return a request for an interview. But Yeah, it's pretty cool. Well, there's still six year old bridge. Walker is more brave and more of a little badass than ah, lot of grown adults that I've seen in similar situations and I gotta tell you, my my hat's off to him. That's for sure. Way to go. Listen. Can you get that story on our website? I'll do it right now. Put it on the tide of Don show website. Yeah, On our Facebook page, the tide of Don shows 23 Chicago's mayor, Lori Lightfoot. She's hit out against White House press secretary Kaylie McKinney. Calling, calling the White House press secretary Karen Karen. Oh, no, she didn't. You're a Karen. For saying that the mayor is derelict mayor now. McKinney was answering Reportersquestions during a press conference earlier when she made several sharp comments about the mayor and accused her I'm doing a very poor job of securing the streets justifiable think anybody that has a pulse would agree that parts of Chicago are very, very dangerous disaster. Yeah, The press secretary also said that she believed that life would should ask for federal help in ending. The recent spike in violence in Chicago of the mayor, like foot responded bluntly. By telling McKinney Go Watch your mouth. You watch your mouth That's helpful. Yeah, that that that's very helpful to your situation there in Chicago. Good work. Good. Don't you come here and critique our trash. Only you. You know the fact is a ce faras the reality of that situation. I would rather stand in the middle of Pakistan right now. Or stand stand in the scariest warzone versus certain parts of downtown Chicago. Right in my my chances were probably better surviving in the worst parts of Pakistan right now, vs vs Chicago. That Pakistan is kind of nice. Actually, it's pretty has got a nice place. Just very I love like Fallujah or something like that. Get wherever, wherever. Wherever the most dangerous war spot is right now, I would probably be beat. My life would probably be Maura Danger in certain parts of downtown Chicago. Maybe write you maybe rights. Maybe maybe what the administration should do is do what they've done in Portland overnight. Overnights over the past few nights. Yeah. Federal officers in unmarked vehicles, Soccer Mom minivans, driving the streets of Portland and rounding up some of these aggressive agitators. These antifa types you know the dress like ninjas in black pants, black jerseys, black hoods and Mask and everything you know other there really picky about protecting their identity..

"Todd Jeffries, Don price, so Patrick, Mark. And everybody's here. Everybody's here. But we got a lot to get to this hour. By now, you've probably heard the story in in social media by the Texas. Judge says academy. The sporting goods store can be sued for selling the Sutherland springs church shooter, the weaponry. All right the law. You're not necessarily the gun, but the magazine for sure the lawyer for the victim's family is Jason Webster. He says Texas academy should be should should have denied the cell of weapons to the shooter. When he used that Colorado ideas, part of his background check in here. What you had was by guy who was most likely was doing gun tourism, basically because under Colorado law. You're not allowed to purchase weapons contain a thirty round magazine. And that's what happened here. Now Webster says if academy salt weapons and magazines to the shooter and compliance with Colorado law, he wouldn't be suing academy. Here's the issue. He could go buy that gun at a kademi. I think it was an AR fifteen maybe five five six. He he could go there and buy it. But in Colorado, high capacity magazines, thirty round magazines are illegal and Russ God. He bought from academy. It came with the magazine of the deal in the box. Yeah. Bullets included. I get now technically academy did violate the law here. The magazine technically they violated the law yet they did. Now, if they sold him the gun he goes outside puts the gun in his car, and then came back in to buy a thirty round magazine that would have been perfectly legal. Well, now not split here. Because you don't have to show an ID the way understand it. He cannot buy a thirty round magazine period in Texas in Colorado and be out. Right. But I'm pretty sure that if you go in right now and by thirty round magazine, just the magazine itself off the shelf. They're not gonna ask you for any ID. Okay. Okay. I've never bought a magazine he's academy in the wrong here. Should they be facing a lawsuit? What should the fine? Be. There are some people in the Twitter verse that said that academy should lose its license to sell weapons. They did break the law. It's unquestionable. There's no doubt about it. According to the Colorado law. Yes, they broke the law while according to the lawyer who brought the lawsuit. They brought the broke the law academy has not spoken, and they have a pretty good legal team themselves. However, however here we are today with this that was Mr. Webster Jason Webster. He represents the victims families twenty six people killed in that horrible shooting. Let's keep in mind. Also the air force failed to throw. This guy's name on the do not buy list. He had several things on his criminal record that would have prevented for buying a gun anywhere. If anybody should be sued. It's the air force academy has absolutely no responsibility whatsoever for what he did after. I agree. That gun. I agree with zero. I agree with that. So there you go they did violate the mall. Guess that'll that'll yes. And they should face the piper for that one for whatever happened there. Yeah. It is six oh nine a time for the rush update. If anybody thinks that President Trump is worried about the growing list of Democrats who want his job guessing again on CBS lay the nation. President Trump reacted to the latest democrat to announce his candidacy Sparticus Trump said that Senator Cory Booker New Jersey has no chance of winning the presidency. He didn't base his assessment on focus groups or some complex political formula. Trump gave just one reason that he thinks Booker has no chance, and that is he knows it Spartacus isn't the only democrat Trump isn't worried about so far. He said he doesn't see any announced democrat who concerns him even sent well wishes to one of his biggest critics Massachusetts Senator FOCA President Trump said that he would love to. Run against Lisbeth Warren as for Howard Schultz. President Trump says the X Starbucks CEO doesn't have the guts to run. He's supremely confident. He's not intimidated. Anybody who thinks President Trump will be easy to beat has another thing coming as to Spartacus. Trump says why do you think you can be president after you destroy a city talking about Newark? It's a good question..
