'Everything You Need to Know About Abortion for Teens'
"This brand new book, everything you need to know about abortion fatigues. Do they want to know? Well, see, they need to know. That's the point. Because why? Planned Parenthood is preying on them in the schools in high schools. They're on college campuses. So like it or not, they need to know about abortion. So what I do in the books is I store it back and I tell them about normal corby. Sandra Cano. I even tell them about doctor Bernard nathanson, who father Frank and I knew. So I showed them how it was all built on lies. Then I introduced them. And this is what's great. In the middle of the book, they let me put in pictures of the unborn child. Like a baby book. Starting at 7 weeks. So you can't buy the lies, the clump assessment. When you see that, it's extremely. And I challenge the young people, you know what? Why don't you ask your parents for your baby picture starting from when you were in the womb? Because as you know, if you want the baby, everyone's showing the pictures. If not, it's a glob of cells. So I show them the truth, and then I tell them what happens in an abortion. Exactly. Comparing that it's not good medicine. And then I show them the voices of the women who bought the lie from silent no more, and the damage.
Why Are More Than 90% of American Children in Public Schools?
"I've got to ask one naive question at the beginning. So I've been an educator for far too long, but at the advanced level, so I taught in a private college and then I taught in the Defense Department for almost a decade. What I don't understand is why are more than 90% of all students in America in public schools, because this is the richest nation in the world until recently, we're based upon free markets and choice, my expectation as an immigrant coming to this country. I thought, well, well, if people want good education, why isn't there a market there to provide it? It's what 6, 7% of private schools? Yes, very low. It's about 6 or 7, 8% of kids. And private schools was because if you want to exercise that exit option to attend a school that you're not residentially assigned to, you essentially have to pay twice. Just talk about explain that. So essentially, we're already paying over $15,000 per child per year through the tax system towards these government run schools that are quote unquote free, but we've poured more and more resources into the system year and year after year since 1960, the U.S. education system has poured about an increase of about 287% after adjusting for inflation in per people education spending in the government run school system and outcomes have been flat. Is there a number for the average student? How much you pay in America? The most recent data, which is before the pandemic, which is a whole nother story, was already about 15 to $16,000. It's obviously higher in some states over the other, but average private school tuition nationwide is only about ten or 11,000 or 12,000 paying more as a taxpayer for substandard product quote unquote, which you really have no control over because you're locked in via zip code.
Professor Nicholas Giordano Talks About Push Back in Academia
"We're talking to Nick jordano, teaches political science at Suffolk community college. You know, Nick, we don't typically have people in the academy who are coming from where you're coming from. So to me, it's kind of wonderful news that you are teaching political science and that you see these things. You get these things. Do you get a lot of pushback? When you're in academia and you express conservative philosophies. It's not something where you're going to get not get pushed back. Of course, pushback is going to come. I have to say, my college, it's actually a great nobody bothers me and the reason that they don't is because we're more in touch with the student body, which is a bunch of people that live life. I mean, some of them are have children, some of them are taking care of elderly parents, some of them are working and going to school. We're not in that four year university bubble where everyone comes from the same background and engages in the group think mentality. Interesting. So it's easier that way. However, there are more conservatives in academia than people realize. And I constantly get emails saying, you know, keep speaking out, keep speaking up. And then I email them back. Well, why aren't you speaking up? I mean, the reality is that if more of us spoke up, maybe the situation wouldn't be as bad as it is today. Unfortunately, conservatives and Republicans, they've kind of ignored the problems and allowed these problems to metastasize. Some of them went into business to make money, and they didn't pay attention to the school boards or the state education departments. Others just thought that problem wasn't as bad as it really was. But we're finding out, particularly what COVID, how bad the problem really is within not just education, not just certain aspects that a bureaucracy, but the entire
Prof. Nicholas Giordano on the Patriot Act and Your Loss of Freedom
"As promised, Nick jordano, professor Nicholas jordano is my guest. He's a Professor of political science at Suffolk community college, a native New Yorker. I love it. I'm also a native New Yorker. But I had a sojourn in Connecticut where I lost the accent. So I apologize. You're a Professor of political science who has been talking about a lot of the stuff that I talk about on this program, which is to say the growth of government bureaucracy and the growth of government at the expense of freedom. So how did you, how did you get to that place? Were you raised in such a way that this was on your radar? Did this come to you as you did your studies? Well, I'm a student of history and the founding fathers made it clear that we want to limited government. We want a small government because governments continually grow expand abuse their power. And so we have to hold government accountable. And then what I saw with the Patriot Act, beginning to unfold, that's what concerned me because I was in Homeland Security. When you say the Patriot Act, talk about what year was the Patriot Act. Shortly after 9 11. So normally it takes about two years to get pieces of legislation through most pieces of legislation never see the light of day. But the Patriot Act passed within two weeks. And it was an encompassing bill that really changed the dynamics of the national security framework of the United States. And people said, well, if you don't support it, then you must be doing something wrong. And many conservatives. You're with that. You're with the terrorists. Correct.
Geo Tracking and the 'Gay Bathhouse' Argument
"I'm continuing a kind of highlight or analysis of my conversation with Philip bump in The Washington Post. And he disputes the validity or at least precision and the accuracy of geo tracking based upon an expert that he interviewed one guy who said, well, it's only accurate to about 30 feet. Well, that's not true. But let's say it is true. I don't think it changes our conclusions at all. For the simple reason that you've got a Dropbox. And you've got a mule within 30 feet, remember a human body is 5 or 6 feet. So 30 feet puts you basically within three or four human lengths of the Dropbox. You're in that vicinity. You're in that geofence or circle. Okay. And if it was only one Dropbox, you could make you could say, well, wait a minute. Maybe the guy was stopped to eat some popcorn. Or was reaching for his wallet? It happened to stop within that radius, but this is why true the votes high bar and by the high bar I mean, ten or more drop boxes. Totally settles the issue, because quite frankly, if you're within 30 feet of ten or more dropboxes, obviously you are going to those drop boxes to do what? Well, there's only one thing you can do. So you remember these aren't post boxes. You can't be writing a letter to your best friend from college. These drop boxes have one purpose. And that is to put in mail in ballots. They're ballot dropboxes. So the only reason to go to them is to dump ballots. So in fact, there's a guy who made a comment on social media. He goes, dinesh, you know, he goes, listen, he goes, what if I were to show that your phone was within 30 feet of a bunch of gay bath houses? Would you be okay with me saying that your regular frequenter of gay bathhouses dinesh and that I have proof that you that you that you did that? And I replied in a kind of a quote tweet and I say, hey, pal, listen. If you can find my phone within 30 feet of let's say ten or more gay bath houses in the period of let's say two weeks, yeah, you can reasonably conclude that I'm a regular customer. Why else would I be within the close vanity vicinity of not one not two? Not three, but ten or more bathhouses. So yes, use your own common sense and draw your own
David Catron: Will the Democrats Accept the Midterm Results?
"Now we were talking about elections And I mentioned some time ago a piece by David catron over there at the American spectator was a great piece with a Democrats except the midterm results And they're clearly laying the foundation for not accepting the results So they accuse you me and Trump have not accepting election results and yet that's what they're all about Anytime a Republican wins its due to some kind of corruption or races or something And you know you would think the bushes would understand this because the Democrats and the media considered him an president for the longest time as a result of the 2000 Electoral College win he didn't win the popular vote but the litigation that took place in Florida He was calling a legitimate president by most of the Democrats in most of the media but that was then and now bush loves being loved But he does point out does catron That the Democrats are likely to get whacked There is more than the usual bombast he says we're getting from these politicians And he also points out the criminalizing political opponents The New York Times with this January reports with this January 6th so called insurrection committee But he believes the increase steadily metastasized into a mccarthyite inquisition Based on the proposition that former president Trump in a long list of so called far right figures were involved in a criminal conspiracy To undermine the results of the 2020 election And that's where the Department of Justice is headed
Jeremy Story Dared to Expose Local Texas School Board Corruption
"We turn to my friend old friend, Jeremy story. We knew each other here in New York. He is now in Texas. He's a pastor. He heads up campus renewal reaching out to college kids. And he has been through an experience that is chilling. And I am excited to get the word out about what is happening. Jeremy welcome. Thank you for having me today. I appreciate it. To my audience who knows nothing about what happened. Start from the beginning and explain what happened. You were in Texas, tell the story. It's a long explanation, but a short version of it is that we were basically trying to expose the actions of a school board who had illegally hired a superintendent back in June. And we were, we realized they had illegally hired him. Then we realized that he had allegedly the allegations in which we then later found out to be very credible and true and fell to evidence that he had threatened his he was having an affair. He had threatened her when she refused to have an abortion and basically threatened her that he would try to come and give her that abortion through an assault. Through a shield approach to school board, the school board ignored her and instead told the superintendent that she had come to them, which then precipitated an alleged assault at her home. And they covered it all
Naomi Wolf on Living in a Time Where Virtue Is Out of Fashion
"Naomi, look, you and I were in college at a time where I feel like even the concept of virtue was already out of fashion. It was mocked, honor. These things were already being locked in the culturally elite circles where we went, that that's for rubes. That's for people in flyover country to talk about patriotism, or love of country, love of truth. What is truth? That's been percolating for many decades. And this is the fruit. Yeah. You really opened my eyes to that in our early conversation, the you're right. And I do think that the CCP has had a profound impact on college campuses. There's Institutes called Confucius Institutes that were opened across the country. I'm sure you've spoken about that before. And I see the impact on our curriculum and it's making me rethink everything, like feminism, feminism should be about embracing women's role in every aspect of our lives, including maternity and family. And in the west, it's been distilled down to just abortion, right? Well, that's kind of a satanic and Marxist way to look at this complex issue of how women can be free. And there's so many examples. You know, you and I talked about deconstruction and how it strips poetry of meaning and it strips literature of meaning and its trips these are culture of dimensional meaning, human meaning. Will this escalate it and I really tease this out in the bodies of others where I look at what got targeted culturally and what got targeted in terms of faith, culture makes us strong in cultures where the western values of the lessons about morality and honor and meaning get transmitted. Well, culture got targeted. You know, you could go to a liquor store, you could go to a pot store in some states, you couldn't go to the theater, you couldn't go to hear a concert, you know, you couldn't hear Mozart in a group of human
Doug Is Joined by Patrick Assalone of the Target Trading Academy
"Talked a lot about the issues out there of economy and investments and where the inflation is going and how the Biden administration basically has zero clue to what they're doing. And it's become very obvious, but it also affects everyday life, whether it's your gas process, your food process. But how about your investments? How about the things in life that actually can make you money, you know, set you up in your retirement accounts, do the things that you want to do so that you have some independence and financial stability. Well, I'm going to tell you right now, if you're going out talking and looking out around the world for the get great schemes, the folks who are telling you how to do it and frankly, if you look into their background, they got no money either. Not the way to do it. And so today, I've come across a guy that I've got to know a like a lot. I love his attitude. You're going to just fall for his passion. Because just great to watch. Patrick Aslan is someone who's going to talk about teaching you and what his company does is teaching you about investments and how to trade. And he also has an interesting background as well. So this is going to be one of the fun episodes of the dot Collins podcast. Sit back strap in because you're going around. You're going to want to take notes on this one. Patrick for having me. Thanks for being a part of the college podcast. Patrick explained to people now and I'm going to let you do it because it's your baby, you do it better than anybody. Explain to me what where you're at right now in your life. What you're doing and how you training and I'll give you the clicking. Do do several things here. First and foremost, I have a trading education company target trading academy where we teach people how to trade in the futures market. Not the stock market, not options that stuff is way too rigged way too dangerous and absolutely not in the retail consumers favor. It's a rigged game. I can we can have a 5 hour show and I can go through a piece by piece on how it's written. The futures market on the other hand is a zero sum game and it runs roughly 24 hours a day. So for example, let's say when New York closes at four 15 5 o'clock in the afternoon, you're stuck in a position. You can't get out. Well, when you're in the futures market, you can protect yourself roughly 24 hours and I teach people how to do this, how not to be in the market, how not to have a position, how not to have exposure, how to manage your risk, where to get in and where to get out. It's a real simple prospect.

The Plot to Subvert the Western Judeo-Christian Tradition of the US
"Folks, welcome back. We're talking to the authors of battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation, Pete hegseth and David Goodwin. So we're talking about what amounts to a conspiracy to subvert the western judeo Christian tradition baked into the heart of the United States of America. And there's no denying it. People like Dewey, they were on a crusade, and they have up till now, succeeded. Yes, they have. And you know what? They didn't know what the destination would be, per se. They just knew where the destination was away from. So it was always progress away from the western Christian paideia, the biblical roots of our and free thinking roots of the nexus of Athens and Jerusalem. They wanted to move away from that. That was progress. So you say conspiracy, that's not a wrong term. We use plot or heist because they passed it off to the next group of radical thinkers who carried the ball down the field based on how much God and other basic values have been stripped away. So enter the Frankfurt school, enter critical theory, which where did it land? A hundred blocks from here at Columbia University at the teacher's college. And these are marxists who fled Hitler while our boys are fighting over in Europe and World War II. And they are greeted with open arms with their radical views soon to infuse into the teacher's college. And within a couple of decades, one third of teachers in America at elite schools had been taught by the critical theorists of the Frankfurt school. So how do you get critical race theory in your zoom classroom? It is in the curriculum and the pedagogy of how the entire educational industrial complex works. And when you unravel it all, it goes back to those early efforts and each step which we lay out the unions, which used to be conservative teacher associations that ended up scripture to teachers to use in the classroom, captured by the unions. Well, then the unions create the Department of Education in a giveaway to Jimmy
The Left Values Lies Over Truth
"About PolitiFact. An organization that lies like a proud proud that was called truth, PolitiFact is called fact PolitiFact is the fact what probably was the truth. They used the name and they lie. I wrote a piece that I didn't write a piece. I said in a broadcast that if you find a noose or racist graffiti on a dormitory door and in college, the odds are that it was done by a black student. And they declared that false, they offered a zero zero evidence as to its falsehood. I'm thinking of suing them. I don't know if I will. I'm thinking of suing them. And the sheep professor who said I lied. They lied. They changed what I said. They said that, well, hate crimes are greater. I didn't talk about hate crimes. I just talk about one specific thing, so they changed the subject. PolitiFact lies because the pointer institute that sponsors it is a left wing institute. Anything the left takes over is dishonest. Truth is not a left wing value. If you ever use PolitiFact, you're wasting your time unless you
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Her Ridiculous Court Case
"I'm back with Marjorie Taylor Greene and we were talking about Ukraine and of course we expect zelensky to be Ukraine first. Of course, that's his country, but weirdly we are surprised when people in America are America first. Let's pivot a little bit to the court case that you found yourself. And I mean, absolutely bizarre situation in which it seems like there was an attempt to prevent you running for reelection. I mean, you got was it activist groups? Who is behind this effort to try to block you from running again? For asking about that, this group is called free speech for the people, but they don't believe in free speech because they were trying to rip my name off the ballot silence the speech of voters in my district and not allow them to be able to reelect me and send me back to Congress. This is a group that operates on dark money. They receive their donations from other 5 O ones and foundations. So you can't see who is really donating to them. And they have a few donations that are public, but most for the most part, you only see groups and foundations that donate to them. These people are a group of attorneys from New York and Massachusetts. They have decided to try to attack our elections, especially our elections in Georgia by filing these candidacy qualification challenges, claiming that by the Fourteenth Amendment Fourteenth Amendment, section three that I supposedly waged an insurrection against the United States, which I absolutely did not. I objected to vote against Joe Biden's fraudulent Electoral College votes, dinesh, and I would probably do it again today, and I would proudly do it again tomorrow. And I'm so thankful for your movie 2000 mules because that exposes why I voted to object.

Ensuring Good Education in a Post-CRT World
"Point chapter at your Belinda high school. Awesome. So last week on April 5th in a three two vote, my school board passed a resolution to ban critical race theory in my district. So my question is, what's the next steps to ensuring that we have a good education, even after that ban? That's great. So it's a two part dance. So that's great. Now you need to say, okay, let's get pro American curriculum in our schools. So what does that look like? Hillsdale college has done a lot of work in this. We're starting to do a lot at turning point USA. But we have to teach people, what is the American story? What is the problem? What is the proper way to view American history? What is America? Was it a mistake? Was it something that has kind of fell out of the sky? There's just a couple of things I'll share here that I think could really excite high school students that they're definitely not taught in school. America was summoned into existence at a time and a place that is very unusual. In fact, it's almost never happened before in human history. Most civilizations are countries stumble into existence. They're not summoned into existence. I want you to think about that. There was a decision to create America. China just kind of existed and it was kind of the Yangtze River valley civilization is kind of built into itself. In this river valley in India and so on and so forth. But America was a group of people that made a decision founding fathers. We have a set of principles. We don't like what's happening. We're going to declare independence of things that are always true. And I'm afraid that most young people are not just being taught that even we're serving taught the opposite. They're being taught to the founding fathers were racist bigoted slave owners. And they don't know their history. They don't know that the first antislavery convention in America was hosted in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin in 1775. They don't know that 9 out of 13 states before the constitution was ratified in 1787 had already independently abolished slavery. They didn't a lot of young people never top that Vermont was the first state to abolish slavery in 1777, inspired by the Declaration of Independence. So the next step is get your local school districts and not just teach this, but inspire young people to be excited about the country they live in. A lot of young people, I think, are
Charlie's Advice for Students Being Alienated for Their Beliefs
"I was wondering if you could give some encouraging words to students who are being alienated by teachers. Their communities and their friends because of their Christian or conservative values. That's a really important question. So students that raise your hand if you think you've been great at differently or treated differently because your beliefs basically every hand goes up. So that's right. Marco says worth it. Yeah, look, I want to say this. So there's a disagreement on the right. And I have a lot of respect for Ben Shapiro, but he has a different answer than I do on this. And I'll kind of say this. So Ben, and this is not precisely your question, but I'll incorporate it. So the question, here's the question, do you lie on your term paper or how you present yourself to your professors to get a good grade? That's a question a lot of people ask, right? It's easier to kind of hide and to not confront things. So Ben says, yes, lie, misrepresent your beliefs, get the good grade and get through college or high school. I see it differently. I do not believe getting a good grade is nearly as important as creating strong people, filled with integrity, willing to fight for truth at all. And so now why am I bringing this up? Because if you wanted to kind of, those of you that are conservative, wanted to have an easier life than just pretend to not be a conservative and just keep your head down and just pretend to be something that you're not and delete your social media. I think there's a lot more important things in life than that. So the word of encouragement is this first something that is true that you don't want to hear and then something that is true that you probably will want to hear. It's never going to stop. You will be harassed called names, demonized, victimized. You will be smeared and slandered. You will lose a lot of your friends. And you'll doubt whether it's all worth it. Sound fun, right? Well, here's the second thing though. You will be a stronger, tougher, more resilient person that will look around at your peers one day while they're worried about whether or not they're being called the right pronouns, and you will be you will have your direction, you'll have resolve, you'll have an intestinal fortitude. You'll have Gusto that will run circles around an increasingly fragile society and you will have what is so lacking in America
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.

Why 'Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion' Is More Divisive Than You Think
"It used to be about equality, racial equality, equality and civil rights. Now we have this phrase or this word equity and we have the acronym, so diversity, equity, and inclusion. When you talk to us about why these nice sounding words are actually more divisive than ever before. Yes, let's unpack these terms, okay? Why is the left switching from equality to equity? Equality says, we're just going to treat you on your merit. We're going to give you equal opportunity to succeed, but after that, it's on you. You got to compete for it. We don't believe in equal outcomes. We don't even believe in equal racial outcomes, right? We're going to give everybody a public education. We're going to give everybody access to healthcare, whatever you want to call it. This used to be what liberalism was, by the way. And then we'll let you compete or liberalism at least purported to be. But now they're replacing that term with equity. Why? Because they don't like competition. Now they're going to force the racial outcomes that they want, even if it compromises equal opportunity. Here's what I mean. So they say, for example, that the achievement gap right now in terms of test scores is inequitable because black students tend to do worse on the SAT instead of white students. So what does Harvard do? What are top colleges in the school in the doing in the U.S. right now? Well, they decide they want to eliminate the SAT. Not because not because anything's wrong with the SET. Yeah, it's a test, and it's not the only thing that you should base your admissions off of, but it's not inherently racist or discriminatory.

I think he's gonna come out and actually have a good game for the saints. I don't know how good but i believe. At least aaron rodgers going to new orleans will be strong to get a win against the saints broncos versus the giants. Jesus is a tossup because it's like you look at the broncos and they really are a good team like topped the bomb except for quarterback just like what is it about the quarterback position ever since pay main left denver retired.

You just don't know what you're going to get and that defense for denver denver's very good especially the pass rush. Dale jones is like you can't really evaluate daniel jones where he doesn't have protection. It's tough so. I look at the denver broncos to go to new york giants and beat them in a close game.

She was emancipated woman legally immensely wealthy dedicated buildings in her own name, very powerful and very much knew how to work behind the scenes when she when she dealt with her husband Augusta. She was important advisor, she took notes and she kept letters from Augusta's and later on when her son type eary's was emperor.

She learned a lot about president Rodrigo Duterte? From speaking with his sister Eleanor. I just had to ask Aurora though. What was that experience? Like Eleanor is eccentric very much have big character. And makes sense that this is a kind of family that he comes from when I met her. We ended up talking for three hours. She was just. Going on and on really in much the same way that the territory does about all of her ideas. But she also told me some stories about him when he was a child. It sounds like sh- could've been president to. She told you though, when he was a kid he'd get into a lot of trouble and his mother their mother was a tough disciplinarian. Well, he would get punished by his mother who sounded like a very exacting woman. His mother had this horse whip. And when he when he misbehave which sounded like it was quite often. He would get a whipping in some way, it seems like he's emulating what his mother did for him. He was an unruly bad kid constantly getting into trouble. But with lots of discipline and tough enforcement. He became the person that he is today which in in his estimate is the right kind of person and the city of Devo itself where he grew up and served as mayor how did that kind of whole experience effect? How he is as president. So in the nineteen seventies in the early nineteen eighties. Deva was an extremely violent place. This is a time window taste during up. He's becoming an adult. He becomes a prosecutor. And he's dealing with cases that are genuinely heinous, they're rebels everywhere. They're vigilantes insurgents that. It's just for years was a very tumultuous time. And so this idea of bringing security to people stemming the violence is something that really formed him as a person that's what he claims to have brought to Davos in the over two decades. He was mayor. And that's what he says he's trying to do to the Philippines now. Thanks very much. Thank you Marco.

There's a picture of her in the Wesleyan archives sitting on some steps with other students, and they're all lined up in the shape of a k. That's a K as in Ku Klux Klan, it was part of the identity of the school. Some of the yearbooks from the time. Had that on the cover African Americans weren't admitted to the college until the nineteen sixties. But now the all female student body of about seven hundred students is forty percent women of color and fifteen percent international students Wesleyan proudly says local students can experience the world just on campus. And that's why Tony Parker came here. She eventually reconciled with her roommate after long discussions about race in American history. But there were still Wesleyan traditions that made Parker uncomfortable. Like once another student woke her up and lead her outside for a ceremony where everyone was wearing clan. Like hoods Parker managed to slip away. She graduated and went on to do diversity and inclusion training for the girl scouts of America Wesleyan recruited, her back as an assistant dean of diversity and inclusion. In two thousand sixteen. Good evening, everybody. One of her jobs was to hold diversity discussions students. Learn had disagreed constructively. She teaches them a series of steps. I someone says something that upsets you. How dare you say that? Okay. They will start saying these things to me. And I'll say, oh, that's interesting. Be intentional about saying.

It was the purple knights the golden hearts the green nights, and then the red pirates junior Anna marmolejo real is a student facilitator for Parker's diversity discussions, a lot of people don't know. I didn't know when I got here wasn't all linked to the KKK that senior Stacey rice, another facilitator. She's retired from the military and came back to school once that came out, then it was problematic. Yeah. For everybody who was a lot of discord around campus. I mean, they couldn't keep sweeping it under the road. They had to the head to address the issue students and alumni whose families had been attending Wesleyan for generations argued the class names or a cherished school tradition. No longer connected to their origins somewhat students alike. Well, my grandmother was this grandmother was so I wanted to be yes. More like tradition. Students talked about it, and Tony Parker's diversity discussions and came to a consensus that the class names because of their KKK associations should go. Parker remembers at as a difficult time. I remember sometimes leave and the campus I felt like my stomach was in knots. I didn't think I was going to make it because it was so much just. Tension administrators could keep the class names or get rid of them and by doing so condemned the school's history. Matt Martin is a Wesleyan assistant, provost an English. Professor it put fish.

"A sex advice or relationship advice column, and he constantly talked about how he saw women fantasize about being raped and being gang-raped. Remember that Bernie Bernie Sanders. Right. They're all kind of cut from the same mould. These are weird people strange weird people that you'd never be allowed anywhere near the United States. America's White House. Never before before. I let you go your column in today's Las Vegas paper talks about your son. And we have about three minutes remaining briefly describe your son's journey trying to get into USC, and why was denied. Yeah. I think it's important. I mentioned my daughter to KOTA because she got you know, among the top SAT scores. In the nation, and she won the very prestigious in very rare presidential scholarship from the national merit foundation. And that's an amazing award that very few kids get out of millions tried out for college. And she got into every top collagen America. Remember Harvard Stanford. You know, every Ivy league school you can name she got into. She was thirteen for thirteen. Now. My son comes along. He gets the same SAT scores is her give or take a few points. Almost exactly the same top of the nation. He wins the same percentages national merit presidential scholarship, which is the odds. Probably like one in a million of both your kids can win that he wanted and he could have got into Harvard therefore, Stanford or all the great colleges in America. Well, instead, his heart was set one college USC, and they turned him down everything he ever did for the five years before college was about getting into USC USC USC. He's a scholar and a and a great personality. But on top of that, he also built a charity. Where he fixes computers and builds computers from scratch for senior citizens, and he was taking the charity nationwide. Now, what college would turn you down with the top SAT scores presidential scholarships charity like that at the age of seventeen and the kid could have gotten into any Harvard, ideally school he gets rejected by USC. Anyway, we move on in life. You still go to a great great college. But the point is that he was devastated and his family was devastated. Now, we find out all these rich liberal creeps bought their way into the US. That was the main part of the scandal was USC seems like like two out of every three these kids in scandal were buying their way into USC and US. He was the only college I know of where the assistant athletic assistant administrator was fired. So it wasn't just like one sailing coach it was the number two person at the university that took one point three million in bribes. Now, we know what my son didn't get in. And by the way, Bill there's two specific examples of who stole my son's slot at USC 'cause there's only like maybe ten. Slots from one city like Las Vegas for USC. How he could not be the best one in the whole state of Nevada and get that number one slot. Now, we know there were two millionaire families name Kimmel and a Z's in Las Vegas who paid millions of dollars kids to get in. I guarantee their kids didn't win the national merit presidential scholarships. So we're gonna sue I'm interviewing and lawyers over the next few days. I've never seen anyone in my life. This'll be the first major lawsuit of my tire life, but we're gonna sue this. What I'm hoping that's and picks up a few million dollars to teach these liberal idiots. A lesson doubt teach them a lesson. When beta Aurora and Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders wrote the sex advice column in which there was all kinds of repeated sex, fantasies invader or Rourke road. I novel in which the character played by him once this either dead face of children on his windshield. And talk about women being sluts. I think I think we got no shot. Can you imagine? If Trump trumpet done. Well, I didn't wanna get. I it's just so obvious. What's happening with the mainstream media Bill Bill c one less thing. Liberals never learned their lessons already today. When my column came out. I got a note an Email from a liberal in Vegas who hates me. And he said, here's what I said. There's a quote, he said, that's why your son didn't get into USC your Sunday and get into USC because of your hateful conservative views. They hate you. And they'll never let your son and a good car. That's so can you imagine liberals are so twisted a mentally ill that they believe in censorship and banning conservatives, and they believe the son of a conservative should not be allowed into college because of his father's political views, which aren't which aren't radical which are the same views as the founding fathers of the United States of America. Beautiful. Well, Wayne Allyn root, we gotta go. But we've got about fifteen seconds out of the American people get ahold of you. All right.

"Market is now in the last thirty days or so up nine times you're over a year from where it was prior year. So huge growth just watching this product. And this is just the beginning of. Yes. Five six months ago when we first went live. So where do you see the most banning in terms of the different types of sports because you there's a Ray of sports that you guys can bet number one. Obviously it depends on the time of year. So I'm speaking only having had it from August. Obviously NFL's pretty big that time of year Senator fells bit number one college football is number two NBA college basketball. But remember baseball was only on for a month or so and during that time. I'm betting on baseball and betting on the World Series was was huge about two months, actually. So it just depends on the time of year. I think, but my guess is the NFL will continue to reign supreme for the foreseeable future. And what role does media play? I mean, how do you think about that going forward you think about acquiring media rights as part of your grand vision going forward? Absolutely. I mean, I think this is all going to take time to evolve. So it's going to be a process, and when it comes to things like media, right? There's a lot of complicated deals out there. So it's not like you could just sorta step in a lot of restrictions that what's possible. We're taking an approach of whether it's acquire meteorites are partnering with those that have we want to figure out interesting ways to integrate with content and innovate in that space. A lot is possible. Now that wasn't technology being able to sink what you're watching on TV what's going on your mobile device. So it's a whole new world. And the good news is that everybody's pretty interested in exploring. With us where we're in a great phase where people see the value. And so we're having a lotta interesting discussions there and our strategy in that area is going to continue to evolve. But I think it's very important part of our future. Let's interesting we had a piece in Bloomberg BusinessWeek just couple of weeks ago about design, and obviously John skipper being there that sort of creates a whole different element of the landscape when it comes to how people are going to consume live sports. Right. Oh for sure. I mean, John skipper ESPN. He's going again there. And I think they're going to do some really cool things zone is just the start of it. I think this is their first foray, but. They're looking to what this can be five ten years. Who's your typical user what's the profile? What's the demographics? We definitely skew mail. We still younger not too young. I think early thirties we have a higher income higher education level than the average person and the average sports fan is it more northeast people southern or. Brad. You would think and major population centres, obviously, it's helpful if there's a professional sports team or multiple freshman sports teams in the area. But really, it's it's where you would think based on major population centres, California's our biggest state, Texas number two New York's number three's. It's kind of the order DC any connection in terms of what's going on the economy just got about twenty five seconds here. Because I think about the pullback.

That was good gave you more. If he was like, I was a rebound bruiser. I said hearts three. Aw. I don't believe. I need a foot is need some actual facts that can I get a newspaper clipping. A newspaper clipping. I don't believe. Believe me. And by the way, Eddie house wants that AirAsia state scored how many sixty one sixty one in one college basketball game against Cal. Those are the numbers. Yeah. They did. Join johnson. This guy's all that back. I see so back to the NFL the raiders have three first round picks, including the fourth. Overall in APRIL's draft quarterback might be in the mix for Oakland is been trophy winner. Cuyler Murray could be the answer. There has been a lot of talk about Cuyler height. But yesterday Jon Gruden said he's no longer worried about shorter quarterbacks. Let's hear it had to say a lot until I saw drew Brees twice a year and Tampa that I met Russell Wilson coming out of NC state. And I'm watching his kid hurry at Oklahoma. And I. Putting away. All the prototypes. That I once had you know, it used to have a prototype for hand size. Height arm length less stuff. We're looking guys that can play and do a lot of different things. They come in all shapes and sizes nowadays, Shannon Gruden will draft Cuyler Murray. I think he's leaning that way skip. But that's awful. Lot of information for someone. They don't normally the tip their hand that much. Well, that's true. I grew the rights give normally for the quarterback. You wanted prototypical somewhere between six three six four. Let's start with that be somewhere between two thirty five two hundred and fifty pounds. Big kid nice is hands especially if you're gonna play outside in the elements. Yeah. But skip there at the time that if you obliged you wouldn't thought of as a quarterback. Correct. You also you could play any position offensive line if you're black, but you couldn't play center because those guys had to make all the lion call. There's a lob the way we think in the way, we'll valuate players now is different than time. Evolve. You're thinking also have to evolve in so right? Drew Brees having the the all time leading passer NFL history. And it's barely six foot tall Super Bowl. Russell Wilson going to Super Bowls one one another barely six foot tall having success. So now, it makes it easier is not a reach the hardest thing is to be the first guy to take that guy. Best under sixty now calamari is really pushing those limits talk about somebody five into have five nine six foot is one. Thanks, get five eleven and a half. But now you're talking about not five ten talking about five eight and a half five nine he's talking about two two inches three inches under sixty. Can the gap lay at the end of the day. Now, they'll valuating guys on whether or not he can play. And if he can play what position does he play. And we won't let him see what he can do without team. Got team guys are not team. Evaluate is not making that mistake. Well, we love him at quarterback man, if he was just another inch taller two inches taller. We love him at this position. But just this Getty play Ozzie Newsome, one of the great general managers of all time. Go probably go into hall of fame as an executive scale because you drive hall of families you doing something. Right. And as an Ozzy how is it that you're able to get these guys, right?.
