California Governor Gavin Newsom Recall Victory Reveals How Voters See the Issues
"The dirty little secret about the effort to recall california. Democratic governor gavin. Newsom is that it started before any of the putative reasons. They said they were doing at least later right. The recall effort got underway in february twenty twenty before kovin had taken hold in california. The petition reads people in the state central about highest taxes in the nation the highest homelessness rates the lowest quality of life as a result continuing he has imposed sanctuary states satis fails to enforce immigration laws he unilaterally overrule the will of the people regarding the death penalty he seeks to impose additional burdens on rationing our water use increasing taxes and restricting parental rights. Well that's not really a platform for her mainstream california voter once got going. However the people pushing recall shifted they wanted then be a referendum on covert policy arguing. The lockdowns for too strict kid should have been back in schools person and it was newsome's fault they weren't and of course there. Were infamously the pictures of governor newson back in november last year. Unmasked at a fancy restaurant with lobbyist. Evidently ignoring his own lock down protocols which was exceedingly bad luck. So republicans across the country saw this as a winning issue and while i agree the issue of corona virus and restrictions and how to best battle. It is top of mind right now with this recall. Election shows us the state of california. And it's voters are actually in favor of the state's kobe. Policies and republicans are on the wrong side of it.

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

Gen. Petraeus Calls out Biden's 'Disastrous' Afghanistan Withdrawal
"David betray s former. Commander in chief in afghanistan appeared on fox with bill. Hemmer and said this fifteen. This administration has overturned innumerable policy decisions by the previous administration withdrawal from the. Who from iran nuclear accord. You can name any more. And i don't know why it felt that it was in a straitjacket in this particular case The fact is i think there were alternatives as we look at what is clearly a heartbreaking tragic. I don't know how you can describe it as anything other than disastrous outcome in this case and certainly there's a lot of blame to go around I thought it was a bit uncharitable to cast quite as much particularly on afghan soldiers. Who until now certainly mixed bag especially with the police but the afghan soldiers and this special operations forces in their air force foot very very hard of our concerns over those years oftentimes were that they were taking such high casualties That they could not sustain that and maintain their instruments. Let's keep in mind that we have not lost a single soldier in battle since february. Twenty twenty so was there. A sustainable measured in expenditure of our blood and treasure sustained commitment That might have been made at maintained. I think that that was an alternative. Did apparently underestimate who a number of us actually pointed out that is that there's going to be an enormous psychological blow i with the announcement to withdraw then with the actual withdrawal. Because i think there are many in afghanistan. Probably the united states who thought would look into the abyss and then draw back at the last moment as we did before including with the trump administration And then of course something is somewhat overlooked was the withdrawal of some eighteen thousand contractors who maintained the us provided helicopter in planes. That were the key to getting those great afghans special operators in close air support to afghan forces that were fighting at at that point all around the country
Back to School With the President of the NEA
"When we talk about how you having an up close and personal view you really did with your family leading the nea. And i really appreciate you hitting on the point. That teachers are also parents. Because i think so. Many people forgot that they're just not here. You know schooling your kids. They also have to do the same for years. So when the pandemic hit. Let's go back to the beginning. What were you immediately thinking when you knew that. The majority of teachers and students couldn't be in physical classrooms in. How was that going. To impact education system in our i immediately started thinking about the disparate impact and that showed up right away but used the irony of the timing for me is that The nea had just convened over sixty groups education group civil rights groups at the end of february february twenty twenty. We combine them in a coalition that we called the homework gap coalition because we had so many students and families who did not have access to the internet who did not have technology tools that they had at home and we already knew that they were going home and coming back to school with a gab of opportunity because so much of the homework now required that they had that connectivity and are black and brown indigenous students did not have that mpm lease did not have that accident so we have put together this coalition to to address that and to demand from the federal government that they allocate funds to close that gap within a month. It was no longer about the homework out. It was about the learning and access to the classroom. Gap that again. Disparately impacted are black and brown digital students are students. Living in poverty are students with disabilities in our marginalized communities that had always all ready and always been impacted by these inequities. Now all of a sudden they're very access to learning had been cut off from them their access to meals. You saw that you saw that on full

"Mentioned. You mentioned another great american. You mentioned tom home and former acting director of is Let's play a little cut from him in the get you to comment on on what he has said. Play cuts when you when you make it easier. People come into the country get released quicker. That's just going to bring more so they need to talk to the experts on the board look bringing back bringing back out. Secure the border three days three days. Because i'll be reinstituted trump policies. And i'll tell the progressive to shut up if they don't like what's being done the and legislate like you're supposed to legislate fix the laws. Is that the tom rating is is it easy to make a big dent in a couple of days. Actually i disagree with him. I don't think he needs three days right. Ria that's probably drive time and lunch so added to that. Look we do nothing. Thomas said that that i stole from him with affection is the bottom of station. Had the most secure border in modern history and they asked. Wh- what can we do. Well first of all just restore everything that biden dismantle restore the remain in mexico program. So you don't need miss the. You don't need working committees anything that they've done in the last six months. Just flip the switch back we studied. We we've studied. The trump administration made more progress to secure our borders and to address illegal immigration than any presidency in modern history by february twenty. Twenty we had reduced the flow from the two thousand nine hundred crisis by seventy five percent. Why because our policies and messaging sinked up and said the same thing that you are not going to be allowed to break our laws illegally and be released in the united states. Never be heard from again and it was effective and this administration. Got rid of all

23 February 1917: The Women's Protest That Sparked the Russian Revolution
"The mass demonstrations. The women kicked off. On february twenty third continued into the weekend crowds and demonstrators paraded through the streets of petrograd. And by saturday february twenty fifth a defacto general strike at ground nearly all non protest related activity to a halt industry shut down and the transportation networks inside the city that is railroad. Trolley cars and cabs all stopped running. There were probably at any given time two hundred to two hundred fifty thousand people out there in the streets. Their demands had moved decisively. Beyond mere economic social relief they were now overtly political overtly rebellious and overtly revolutionary the cries and banners. Were all down with autocracy down with the war and specifically down with the german woman now the german woman herself and worked talking here of empress. Alexandra was as disgusted with the people of petrograd as they were with her describing the protests. She said this is a hooligan movement. Young people running shout that there is no bread simply to create excitement along with workers who prevent others from working. If the weather was very cold they would probably all stay home now. She probably wasn't wrong about that last bit but to believe that all of this was simply the result of unscrupulous agitators. Making things up that it was just people running around and shouting no bread simply to create excitement as if there wasn't literally no bread while that just speaks to her insanely distorted view from the imperial bubble a bubble that is just days away from being shattered
Kara Goes to the Olympics
"Dick pound welcome to sway. Thanks days to be with you. So i wanted to start by breaking down this decision to go forward in the tokyo olympics in february twenty twenty told associated press. That was more likely the games would be cancelled rather than postpone. Did you want to cancel. Or was that a prediction noah at the time i it looked like the organizers in the iot were in one of these school picnic things with a three legged race marching resolutely towards this precipice. And you have to. It's not going to happen. In twenty twenty and the old system was kind of binary a lighter went ahead or you cancelled. But the tokyo organizers were so good that they said look maybe there's another alternative which is to postpone and we think we can hold this whole bowl of jello together for a year but no longer than a year and we said well. Listen that's certainly preferable to canceling so let's explore that option and that's where we've been ever since both jello and also could raise his over cliff. That's kind of interesting metaphors to use. When you were thinking about it. Why not just cancel and move on a man you got if nothing else you've got thousands and thousands of athletes from two hundred six countries who've been training for this event for years and years and years and we've never faced a postponement before we face cancellations due to wars on three occasions and thought was that you know within a year. We would know an awful lot more about kobe than we did. In february or early march of twenty twenty which is true. Why isn't important to the olympics in play. i think it's important for the athletes. Be for learning how to respond to game changers. Like a covert. I mean. it hasn't been as something on the scale for century. Nobody in living memory can remember the you know the spanish flu as it was called and frankly the world at large needs some good news of this

The Surprising Gift of Doubt With Marc A. Pitman
"Gonna be talking about your book today. Book called the surprising gift of doubt using uncertainty become the exceptional leader. You're meant to be and the theme of the book. Really resonated with me. And i i i think for a lot of people which is that. It's about the importance of developing your own personal style and nor to serve as you said your own unique way of operating in the world. It's something i'm passionate about. I write about my next book coming out. February twenty twenty two is all about this which is if and more from a sales focused. But yeah if you want to become the best version of yourself in whatever you're doing is you need to sort of seize. The autonomy will and experiment and dad. Develop your personal style and unfortunately so much a sales. These days is oriented towards. Well how can i make everybody else. Yeah operate and sound just like everybody else supposed to becoming the best version of themselves. And that's i think part of it's because you can manage that so as a sales professional if you're good sales usually we get good at something. And then we're promoted into our level of incompetence there so the good salespeople who are really liked the sales process getting managing sales sales people and aren't really good the management part. Because so they try to make mini. Me's trying to force people into their own kind of sales outfit which doesn't fit. Yeah what it surf supported these days by the fact that now if so much technology that we're able to really have more insight and transparency into the selling process and we could say. Oh well we can pick out the unique things that jennifer does our number one salesperson. Now we're gonna coach everybody in these specific things to be just like jennifer as opposed to saying. Let's yeah what jennifer does interesting. This could work for you. Once you experiment with that and may put your own spin on it and then integrate that into your style as opposed to this is what you need to be

"February twenty fifth I signed my job offer in the new company, and I turned in my two weeks notice. My new company was very interested in me starting earlier than two weeks and asked me to let me know, let them know if my current job would make me work out the two weeks or not well, they didn't make me work out the two weeks. My last day was then was February twenty six I love a new employer know that I'd be able to start earlier in my new start date was to be March. Forth rather than the eleventh. I met with my new boss and my team that I would be working with on Wednesday. Everything seemed fine then late Friday evening March. I received a phone call from the regional human resource manager stating that my job offer would have to be revoked because another employee there had Google to my name and gone on to my Facebook page. The HR manager said the employees had found some posts from back in October two thousand eighteen that violated their anti bullying concerning the LGBTQ community. The HR manager read me the post, and I honestly didn't even remember them. But she turned. But the term she mentioned that being offensive is term that is often used by people. I think was coined by Rush Limbaugh term Limbaugh that his his used in describing transition surgery for male to female. I don't know what the term is both of the post the HR manager read to me were obviously only meant as a joke. I defended myself the best I could, but to no avail as the HR manager repeatedly said there was nothing that could be done and advised that I apply for unemployment as soon as possible. I am not aware as to get if I have been approved for unemployment or not. But I now have no employment because of them revoking their job offer and me having already left. My other job. I have since made my Facebook page private, but one did not have to be on my page for longer than two seconds to see that. I am a conservative. I believe this is why I was targeted until something was found that someone felt they could use against me like Tucker Carlson. Everyday individuals are facing this kind of attack, and we are suffering greatly for it. I have no media platform for myself, which is why I'm reaching out to you to help get my story out conservative and independent thinkers must be on guard at all times and everything we say and do we are under attack and the left is seeking whatever means necessary to. Destroy us. As in my case where I no longer have employment and struggling every day to find another job. I'm just one of the millions of Americans who live paycheck to paycheck.

They do a visual count of encampments or cars that look lived in then workers separately interview about five thousand homeless people from that sample, they estimate how many people live in each tent or car. Last fall, the nonprofit economic roundtable said this method is not accurate enough to pinpoint small year-over-year changes. But. The Los Angeles homeless services at authorities stands by its methods. The last count also revealed dramatic changes in some homeless groups for example, a twenty percent increase in homeless senior citizens and similar decreases in the number of homeless veterans and chronically homeless people on the streets this year, the count comes as city and county leaders say their housing more people than ever before it'll be a few months before we know if it's enough to make a significant dent in last year's number about fifty three thousand throughout the county.
