I've heard various ranges about the number of pages of the Bill, but it's going to be over two hundred maybe three hundred pages long.

"It oh, by the way, a quick reminder. Right after the show, we're going to do a Facebook. Live tech news. Brought to you by Texas mutual insurance company coming up right at ten o'clock. Top of the hour at ten o'clock this morning, good. So Amazon's decision to walk away from New York City could scare off other tech companies that are considering to move to New York City or possibly expand. That's a big concern. The stunning reversal came after Amazon conducted a year long search for a second headquarters and decided to split the new facility between Virginia and Long Island city across the East River from Manhattan, but New York politicians pushed back after the deal was announced saying the city was giving away too much reduced taxes, which they contended the online retail behemoth was well able to pay Amazon which had planned to put twenty five thousand workers in the queens campus says it will not look for a substitute. But instead will expand its new offices in Arlington, Virginia and Nashville, Tennessee, Warren Levinson, New York, the decision. Wipes out twenty-five thousand promise jobs in the city, and well, it's it's not good. No. It's twenty five thousand jobs gone. Now. A lot of people say that a lot of people are against these kind of big deals to bring big companies to town because Amazon could afford the taxes that just made three billion just as we spoke. They don't need a three billion dollar tax for. No, no, they don't. They don't need that. However that area does need twenty-five thousand jobs. Yeah. And you're not gonna get the property tax revenue or any kind of tax revenue whatsoever. From the twenty five thousand jobs that would have been created understand. I understand the the argument there about the tax breaks for sure a lot of people get that. But the benefits were far gone out that they were going to more than break even on that deal. That's for sure. Oh god. And think about that twenty five thousand jobs that people would have been thank about the the enthusiasm. The hope that that created for so many people and now it's just ripped out. Out from underneath them. It's like a punch in the Gooch as small business owners. It is. I don't know what it is. But it got punched Julie Samuels is the executive director of the industry group called tech in why she says the city is playing with fire with regard to this message that it sends to companies that want to come to New York or even expanded New York now immediately when this story broke I immediately thought oh gosh does that mean Austin's back in the running for this. But Amazon he knows they sent out a message saying they're just going to expand and add more jobs at some other facilities as opposed to building a second headquarters, which means, but I guess they could change their mind at any time a morning if why if if they're just going to pull that off the table as far as putting in another city. I mean, how serious were they about doing that to begin a why were they going to do that to begin with? And now they're gonna never mind expand where we've already got maybe they're frustrated deal with big city politics. Maybe they think they're going to get the same kind of reaction in Austin that they would that they got a New York. I mean, it's the same kind of mayors and city councils and county commissioners, it's the same progressive left. They would have got the same kind of heat the Greg Kosovars of the world if they decided to pick Austin, Greg casare would have been making the same argument that Cortez is making. She's celebrating this decision. Not to create jobs. I'm trying to figure out what does up talker Cortez have now as a result of what kind of satisfaction. Did she get out of that the fact that she's making these potential jobs, just poof, go into thin air and the economic benefits and the other benefits that we can't even better out there that we haven't even thought of yet? What does she feel? She has nail. As a result of that jump in here at five one. Two eight three six zero five nine.

"Six forty six Todd Jeffries and Don prior activists are calling for Moore equity in admissions to magnet schools in the Austin school district magnets have been a hot debates as of late two. And now there's a call to revamp the way the Austin school district makes those campuses available to kids in east Austin, just east Austin attorney Jim Harrington he says east Austin is a little bit different than the rest of the city. Therefore, they should be given a leg up through guaranteed admissions for the top five percent of each Austin campus areas top five program like the top ten percent that we use for the universities is the way to do it to assure that diversity now. Now, the conversation got heated during some recent Austin school board meetings discussing this new report recommends ending the magnet programs and closing some schools redrawing the boundary lines as way to save money and increase revenue. The report comes from the task force of up to thirty staff and community members to establish this study for the district's budget. And and basically this group says shut them down Robert Thomas, one of the task force chairs he told the trustees they can choose to ignore his group's report as previous boards have done, buddy. Said radical change is needed to stay afloat financially and bring equity to all schools in the district. I mean Thomas he said this task force. She says approximately three thousand of the eighty two thousand students in the district or part of these programs. So it it doesn't affect a whole lot of kids. But Jim Harrington the Texas civil rights project. He says we need to create a program. So that if you're in in east Austin school, and you're the top five percent of your class that you could get automatic emissions into one of these magnet programs. And here's why east side is different than the rest of Austin. You can't rely upon internet applications in the way that west Austin might there you go. Leads to explain that. Does. He mean, the kids aren't smart enough to go online to apply or the parents aren't does. He mean, they don't have Google fiber. Does he mean, they don't have a computer? Does. He mean that they don't have access to paper printouts at their school to fill out the application. What is he talking about? Yeah. He did. Because it sure does sound it. Sure does sound demeaning of east Austin. Well, it does it makes it sound like a bit like a third world country or something. And that that is far from the case. Resolve that the kids that he's talking about a very capable. Oh, they certainly know how and where to get on the internet that he doesn't think they're capable. What does he mean by needed to go a step or two he needed data few sentences to that statement that that's for sure because he didn't sell it? I'm not buying it. And you did not represent them. Well at all. All right jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety toll free eight seven seven five nine zero five five to five. So last night. A lot of debate in the Twitter verse over property tax reform, locally lawmakers this week a really ramping up their efforts to talk about it. Don't putting a cap on how high local governments like the city council of Austin can raise your taxes. Mayor Adler would like to be able to raise it as much as he wants whenever he wants. He recently during the last session, he went to the capital testify against a property tax cap. Now governor abbot would like that cap to be around two point five percent. In other words, every year when a city council or county government does its budget. They can raise taxes it's well within the law to do that. But once it reaches a certain point, they have to go to the voters right now, the mayor and other county officials would like that to be eight percent if they want to go higher than eight percent increase, then they would have to go to the voters the governor other top leadership at the at the capitol. They won't that captain be at two point five percent. If you wanna go above that, then you would have to go to voters. So that is a debate that is underway. The state capital beginning this week, in fact, Ellen trucks, Claire who comes in occasionally of Wednesdays with a she won't make it today. Because she's going to be testifying. She's the one that really, you know, was a thorn in the side of mayor Adler during the past couple of years on these issues taxes and tax increases. I I guess I'm going to have to excuse myself from this this conversation because I clearly don't understand how this works because Adler keep saying we've gotta we've got to address. This affordability issue in Austin yet he wants to have full control on on the tax on the tax rate, and he wants to be able to raise it whenever he damn well pleases. Oh, I guess I just don't understand that you, you know, you do understand completely confused. Undergo you got it. You're you're spot on he wants to get as much as money. He wants to dig so far in your wallet. He can check your prostrate. He wants to get so much of your money to build a forcible housing's, higher taller, more density and get 'em packed downtown. Because those are his core core voters period, it's all about maintaining power and keeping up with with their favorite programs. Greg Kosovars is the leader on all of this. So making all Austin less affordable for me makes Austin more affordable for him in his constituents. Yes. Thank you. Yes. I understand now. It's very clear I'm leaving. But this it's a big deal because this is how cities balanced the budget. They like to increase taxes for their favorite projects. I wish he would just stop talking about the Ford ability. She really it. It's it's so hypocritical. Just just drop that from your whole thing. And. Just accept this going to get more expensive to live here every five minutes, and then not to mention how this affects our public schools. This is how we fund public school, right? Right. Right. In the rears six hundred million dollars this year alone. We're sending back to the states who's part of recapture and Robin Hood. I keep forgetting how generous I am very general. I am a Saint you are and you're welcome. You're very, yeah. Absolutely. And A there's shame. a sad story. Lake Travis high school, man, what a horrible story. This is this. Yeah, I'm guessing the kid Sean attack the teacher. Well, the story is he got a bad grade. And he came to school, I guess last week or earlier this week and just just knocked the hell outta went to town sucker punched her several times in the name off the top turnbuckle took another kid in the classroom to jump on his back to stop him. They did he kill. He he might have had an intention to killer. Who knows how far this this kid was going to go classroom of where it happens say the student was upset over a grade and walked into the classroom and just sucker punch the English teacher right in the face junior. Clay jackson. He spoke with KFC. And he says he just came in and threw a punch a right hook to her face. And then hit her multiple times in the head. The district has not confirmed any of the details. They're not going to talk about this. Of course. And the kid was arrested. His identity has not been released students reported the teacher was not in the classroom. The following day. Yeah. That makes sense. Yeah. Because somebody came in and beat her up. Now, the Travis county sheriff's office is assisting with the investigation and interviewed several witnesses several witnesses in the classroom Jackson said he he raced in to help the teacher as soon as he realized what was going on. I came up from behind him. I grabbed him his arms from both, you know, around both the bear hug, basically and held him until somebody showed up to help. Good for him. Well done, sir. Well done this is what men do is. Yeah. That's what men's men do. You don't stand there and videotape. It like is so common these days you actually get in you take action. This is so disturbing for all the obvious reasons. But it's also I have a hunch can't prove this. But I have a feeling this kind of behavior was demonstrated for him before in. This was maybe the norm. I hope not. But the fact that this entered his head to go beat literally beat up the female teacher is absolutely horrifying that is that is that is really really. Disturbing. And he again who knows just wonder how he was gonna stop. I wonder I'm wondering how common it is though. Because there may be incidents like this that that happened that doesn't get out into the public. Yeah. You know, there's dot an a whole lot of witnessing. You know of the incident. How common is it that teachers get attacked by the students? Shirley, there's some kind of record of that right with the ISD keep record of that teacher assaults. Surely, there's a human resource person that record of that. Right. We should we should try to find that out again thinking back on when I was in high school and middle school. I don't ever remember anything like this ever happening as for as a student literally attacking a teacher. Yes, we were all in shock today that I will never forget it the day sixth grade one of the students in in our class. I won't mention his name, but he stood up and called miss Yannis old machinists who was in her while she was probably just in her fifties. But she seemed at the time he told her to f- off well and in front of the class that was the most shocking thing I'd ever seen to that point. But beating up a teacher we had a baseball rude their baseball coach in highschool ditch. All right, one of the girls the volleyball team raped her. And when the baseball team found out about it that day at practice. Little street Justice. Yeah. That coach was never to be seen again. I don't condone that. Todd and Don show, Matt so Rancho Austin's favourite Tex Mex food since nineteen fifty two. Yeah. We love to go there. That's for sure. I gotta say that's definitely Austin's favorite restaurant because you see so much of Austin. They're all aspects of Austin, great place to go. They can also bring it to you though for your corporate event.

"Three six zero five ninety. So you know, that that horrible story about Natalie corona who was then forty two year old cop who was tragically shot last week just had just joined the police force. Have you seen that picture of her? I think is from back in two thousand sixteen she posed for a series of these really gorgeous pictures, they were taken by California photographer one of which she is. She's got that cops live matters flag that she's flying horse it. Absolutely. Well, share this on my Facebook page yesterday morning. Here's a beautiful young. Oh, yeah. Absolutely stunning. And she had just become a cop and loses her life already. It's just a horrible horrible thing. Well, now, a group of students at the university of California Davis contend that that photograph where she's displaying that flag of blue lives matter is racist demanding that people that. The people cease and desist circulating that image around. They say that the flag is blatantly anti black blatantly disrespectful. Well, those people are dumb asses say or dumb asses. I mean, I cannot believe that we have gotten to that point. They say that we see it necessary to call out all community members who continue to post and disseminate images of the blue lives matter flag online. I said we just laugh at those people because this one I shared was shared twenty seven hundred times since yesterday morning of that picture two thousand seven hundred fifty five times shared from my page there at Todd Jeffries. It's been a tragic week for law enforcement. Yeah. With five line of duty deaths. Thoughts and prayers obviously going out to everyone. That's that is suffering and loss January the fifth Provo police department officer Joseph shiner shot and killed what trying to send a fugitive. Monday, January the seventh in the Colorado township police officer Dale woods struck by a pickup truck while investigating another crash Tuesday. January the eighth Salt River police officer Clayton towns and struck by distracted driver during a routine traffic. Stop January the night Shreveport era. Louisiana police officers should Terry Paine shot and killed on her way to work city of Davis. Police department Natalie corona shot and killed while investigating a three-car crash. Yeah. Very tragic week for the men and women that put on a uniform to protect us. There's some perspective anybody out there listening to that has a problem with the American flag with the blue line going through it to symbolize we support police officers. If you've got a problem with that you need a checkup from the neck up you need you need, an alternative perspective in life. You need to stop listening to the Greg Kosovars of the world and start supporting your local police. Yeah. Because. Because when you when you when you come up to the microphone and say things like that flag is racist that that's racist. That's racist. What you're doing is is you're creating tension between people and the police in some cases in certain neighborhoods. If you don't like the police, and you decide to run from the police, that's how you get hurt. It's tension that is completely unnecessary. And it's based on it's based on nothing is basically sick and tired of. I'm sick and tired of waking up almost every other day hearing, a police officer has been killed in the line of duty. No, it should it should be. It should be a national crisis. My brother Dinu just retired from thirty five years of police work. I'm so glad that he got through thirty five years and in his alive to talk about hang on a second. I'm looking on the news line here. Is this Justin Justin berry there? Hey, guys. Hey, it's Justin berry from the Austin police officers association. Hey, listen. I'm deal guys. Good morning. Yeah. Yeah. What do you think about this story about that flag with the blue line some something it's racist? I think they are completely misguided and. Understand what the symbolism behind. That means you know, the firefighters have their own version of that flag with a red line through it. I seriously doubt our firefighters are are racist or bigoted towards towards the community. And I think what it is. It's just. This narrative has been going on for years now and your seem to cumulative effect of this narrative that tries to pit community and police offers against one another and sadly this dire effect that happened from several years ago that's been compounding over time. And it's just getting worse when you have people like Greco star as posting misleading statistics that blocks for eight or likely get arrested in all black by using micro fractions, make that argument it's very misleading. And this is just Justin you say, you say it's misleading to be honest. It is it is racist to push that that false narrative that Greg casare is pushing it creates racism intention in our community. It's ridiculous. Air right now, gotta respect. But but it. Anyone should be outraged? Anytime you see a person that a politician or leader of our society, you statistic in America separate those that are there to protect them from the community members should be outrageously throwing up red flagged immediately, and it needs to be questioned. Why would you do something like that? And why would you use this kind of nonsense? Stir? Disturb racial debate. Whenever we are actively working with incredible members of our community. We work with people like Chaz more with team man with the place monitor we worked with these groups with Nelson, Linda we worked with people regularly. So we can improve relations not to harm them. Well, always put into improving ourselves. Listen Dodd mentioned a story there. But which which university of these students see Davis UC Davis. They're upset because she's taking pictures with that flag today. But then I realized that she is Hispanic exactly. I think if they wanted to go down that line they're gonna fire every single police officer. I think we all either have a flag or some type of token of that that the imagery on there. Able pathway says it's a direct attempt to undermine the black lives matter movement. Golly. That's a sad. State of black lives matter. Bu-but undermines itself almost daily. Hey, justin. We've had we've had that Timberline flag circling around long before that movement started. And then I'm very upset that people are trying to restore up stuff that that that people are actively working on to improve. That's ridiculous dumb people. That's all it is just an appreciate, hey, we gotta get together soon. We still got a pinpoint a date and a time to do this law enforcement palooza. Yeah. Yeah. I'm getting excited about that. You definitely go. Grab coffee students start worked on student next week. Thank you. Justin, Justin berry from the Austin police association. This is a disgusting story. I it is. Absolutely. Glad you want to bring it up. Then why do you want? In this war and bring negativity. I was just I was just dumping talking about the ribs. You come to straight on racism, man. I'm know you're just extreme. You're not all over the place. You're just the two extremes. I don't like talking about racism, but this this just completely. Yeah. You do just shocked me Sebastian good morning. Good morning. How are you doing? Thanks for taking my call fine. I was just gonna make a I guess opined eloquently about the thing about the the blue line. I mean bringing that up. I mean, everybody that you know, that the guy good said, you know, that the blue line was put on their way before police thing. But somebody remote at the blue light support the police have you support you police supports your police. I'm a black male. And you know, I give the state trooper. I get tired of them, sending me requests for money. But I give to them because it's a dangerous job. I mean, don't ever give any money to any state trooper organization that calls. You sebastian.

"The tweets are coming in fast and furious from the President Donald Trump just a few minutes ago. He says I've been waiting all weekend. Democrats must get to work now border must be secured. Then he tweeted out just ten minutes ago, Nancy and crying chunk can end the shutdown in fifteen minutes at this point. It's become there and the Democrats fault. And then he tweets are just now just a minute ago. Democrats in Puerto Rico a shutdown hits day twenty four jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety we'll get into that in just a minute. But there's an interesting story this morning in the Texas Tribune after a disappointing football season, led to swift firings. Three Texas public universities now effectively have to head football coaches each on their payrolls turnover will cost the schools six point nine million in payouts to their departing coaches and more than nine million this year for the hired replacements and the two of the three schools Texas State university and the university of. Houston the football program spent more money than they earned last fiscal year requiring other university funds to cover the difference. Texas Tech university whose football team made nineteen point six million dollars, and then spending 2017 they made nineteen million more than they spent in two thousand seventeen oh, the former coach four point two million dollars in a payout, and they'll spend three million dollars this year for a replacement now the pace the payments coming a time. When many Texas colleges have continued to raise tuition and fees in part to compensate for declining support for the you know from the state legislature. But university officials say they're winning on the grid. Iron is a net positive for the school one that can bring name recognition prestige and possibly lucrative licensing deals and increased ticket sales. There's no doubt that football. How well the football program is doing above any other sport can be a major recruiting tool for the whole school. Not just obviously. For football players, but the the whole program, but man, if it starts to eat into the operating cost in the prophets overall of the whole school and might affect tuitions having to go up for other students as a result, for example. I don't know that seems a little wacky. I don't think it's done that yet. I mean, that's that's the concern. That's what these university saying right ball programs. Help us generate more revenue without these programs would've they would've lost a lot of money. Yeah. Texas ADM's, Kevin Sutherland fired two thousand seventeen paid him. Nine point nine million, Charlie strong fired twenty six thousand nine point four million cliff Kingsbury there at Texas Tech fired last year or fired just weeks ago. Four point two million major Applewhite fired from the university of Houston. Twenty two million dollars North Texas. Their coach fired at twenty fifteen two million in Texas states fired in two thousand eighteen Everett weather's seven hundred thirty seven thousand dollars in impair outs. Yeah. I'll have to look this up again. Because at my understanding that was that the Texas UT that their football program more or less was self sustaining and really didn't affect that's correct everything else. So if that's still the situation. That's that's how it should be. That's how it should be. But. If it starts to really eat into the whole universities prophets. That's that's kind of questionable to me jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety toll free eight seven seven five nine zero five five to five hundred percents. You're not saying we should shut down some football program, not necessarily, but they sure need to look at their numbers. And maybe really Joyti schools are doing exactly what you just highlighted. You have a problem with. So should we shut these schools down not shut the schools down, but shut the football program's down. I don't want to say that right now. But they they certainly need to take a look at some of the math and maybe reevaluate because again, these football programs can be major recruiting tools for for the whole school period. It gets the name out there. It's advertising part of it. Let's say congress returns to Washington for its first full week of business since the control of the house reverted to Democrats, but lawmakers will face the same lingering questions when will the partial government shutdown and Senator Lindsey Graham says he offered the president a possible solution though. It may be wishful thinking I tried to see if we could open up the government for a limited Peter period of time to negotiate a deal. And the president says let's make a deal then opened up the government Nancy Pelosi says, even if he opened up the government wouldn't find a wall. So that's why I'm depressed now. The South Carolina Republican is encouraging Trump to reopen. The government for several weeks to continue to go shooting with the Democrats over the border wall. A Graham says there's no deal at the end of that time, then Trump should it. Oh, take a more dramatic step and declaring a national emergency to build it. But Trump wants to deal, I the Democrats want the government reopened. I in this partial government shutdown now day twenty four with no end in sight. It really does for plex. How you expect this to end when you tell the press in the United States, you can't get it. You get one dollar for a wall. When in the past Democrats have appropriated billions for the wall. Was he supposed to do just give in he's not gonna give in now? So the question is what advice does Lindsey Graham. For the president. I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time like three weeks before he pulls the plug. Safeway can get a deal if we can at the end of three weeks all bets are off. See if you can do it by himself through the emergency powers. I like that idea lot. I really do. I think that that that makes sense to me that really does make sense that's more practical, obviously as being a massive relief for a lot of government employees, president state at the White House all weekend trying to solve this crisis. Meanwhile, the Democrats are on the beach in Puerto Rico hardy in down having a great time. Yeah. I mean, thirty if thirty Republicans or getting drunk with one hundred lobbyists on the beach watching Broadway plays it would be the lead story. Yeah. Exactly. But it's not the story because it doesn't Fitch the narrative of MSNBC CNN and the Greg Kosovars of the world, right? Exactly. They need to be it needs to be all hands on deck. Trying to figure this thing out trying to come to a solution not going to see a play in laying on the beach in Puerto Rico several federal workers who have been furloughed about eight hundred thousand them are missing out on their first paychecks. They missed that first paycheck Friday. Many of the four hundred eight twenty thousand or so employees deemed essential who are working without pay as well. As those furloughed have expressed concerns over paying the reoccurring bills, such as mortgages and things like that putting food on the table. Some of these folks have had to go out and find other jobs, why in the meantime, wow, including including this man who didn't want to identify his full name, but he did allow a reporter decor tagged along as he went to apply for a job at a bookstore. He works for the national archives. And he actually showed his pay stub at one point. I have an interview and a few minutes at a bookstore here in Maryland..

"Two eight three six zero five ninety so President Trump's top pick to serve as his chief of staff is out of the running and Trump is now soliciting input from at least four other people the high profile hiring search comes at a pivotal time. According to the Associated Press has the Republican president looks to prepare his White House for the twin challenges of securing his twenty twenty reelection and fending off inquiries wants Democrats gain control of the house next year chief of staff John Kelly is leaving around the end of the year, which everybody knew what he was going to do is pretty common previous presidents have gone through a bunch of chiefs of staff as well over their career, but it's a different deal with previous now also with the news, and you could jump in here. Democrat Representative Adam Schiff who is full of Schiff says there's a very real prospect that the president's when he leaves the office. The Justice department may indict him shifts says he may be the first president in quite some time to face. Face a wheel prospect of jail time for what oh come on house. Democrats have raised the possibility of impeachment or incarceration for Trump. If it's proved that he directed illegal hush money payments to a woman that is just Bravo Sierra, you don't go to jail for paying doing that. It's a non disclosure agreement. John Edwards did it to the tune of millions those lawmakers. Here's what's going to happen. It's not going to happen because the house and the Senate have always had the slush fund to pay women off shot up the hush fund after being assaulted in the workplace the shadow fund. Exactly. So if they're gonna go after Trump, then there's probably a bunch of other people they need to go after give me names, give us names of the hush fine. Why did you why did you have to pay people off to shut up after a sexual assault allegation? Allegations lawmaker who is the accused who were the victims. And who made the actual transition transaction from that hush fun. That's why it will not come up that will be the that. Should be the focus for Trump's team focus on that that hush fund what we could run through the list and start naming names. Right. You want to do that allows not I'm trying to move forward. But she she Adam shift. What a ridiculous thing to say. What a dumb thing to say. And I want to know politician. What does that do that that comment that he might be the first president actually do jail time? What what what does it do? What did he just by saying that it's Bates? It's rounding up the progressive left. Adam share the mayor Adler, Greg Kosovars, the Bridget Shays. They all love that. What's anybody on the left trying to do to make the world? A better place is what I want to know just greatest just I want to ask you, Adam. What are you working on right now? What's what's your big pet pet project? What's your what's your, what's your agenda? How you making my life and everybody else's life better. What are you doing for the country? Now, there's also there's also a need for a deal soon. Lawmakers and the president of agreed on a government spending legislation to keep the country running past December the twenty first. Now, the one thing they cannot agree on is funding for the president's proposed border wall with Mexico despite the stopgap spending Bill signed by President Trump on Friday. The number of other bills remain on unfinished, including of course, the one that deals with border wall funding, but the clock's ticking, the president will meet with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi tomorrow to try and work out a deal with Democrats saying they can only give one point six billion dollars for border security. The impasse is threatening a partial government shutdown if there's no compromise in two weeks. Some Republicans like Lindsey Graham say the president needs to stand his ground. That's FOX reporter Todd Piero their nation's capital jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety do you think there's going to be funding to build a wall? I never thought there would be. I never thought that was going to be that was a promise. I never thought. It was a promise still pushing for it. I never thought it would happen. Either. He would mean I just never believed that it would be funded. I never believed that also I never believed that he was one hundred percent serious about it. I don't know. But I think he's dead, sir. Well, okay, fine. But I never believed that it would be something that would be fully funded. Not not in a million years. Just no it's just it's too hot. There are words to the proper words to describe you do realize they catch ten no known terrorists trying to cross that border. Stay every every every week. And I'm not saying that a wall wouldn't be a good idea. I'm just saying I never for a minute believed that that's something that is it a deal breaker for you for twenty twenty reelection. No, if the president does don't repeal ObamaCare, if we don't build a wall, if we don't accomplish a couple of other big promises that he made on the campaign trail is it a deal breaker will get your vote. I'm not ready to make that statement yet still have a couple of years to go a lot of water to go under the bridge. I'm not ready to say that yet. Yeah. Got you. But I think if I hear any other Republican conservative candidates that you would like to see run. On that side. No, no, not right now. No. I don't want to have that conversation right now. Absolutely. Not well, the conversation's already being had. Yeah. I understand that the conversation has had as soon as the first day he took office. That's when that conversation began soon as the new year begins twenty nine thousand nine will be nothing but reelection if I was voting again right now, I would vote again for Donald Trump. Okay.

"Dot Brier some water. You feel like a may have a little Adler is revenge starting to come on. Happy. Go get some water out of the machine. I want to stand up and show you this. That's right out of the faucet. Oh, good. Lord. That's a chocolate. I don't even know where call that Brown. What is that's beyond? It's Adler who is what they're calling it. Five one eight three six zero five ninety. So Austin civil leaders are doing the best they can to put the genie back in the bottle after the county officials yesterday suggested that that boil water notice may last two weeks now all day yesterday. They threw everything at it's you know, and filled the room with the city and county officials to announce the latest information declined trying to clear up some confusion. Some miscommunication between the city and the county Travis county emergency management coordinator said the boil water notice could last much longer than initially thought. This was yesterday mid morning. Keep in mind. Our initial estimate says that this situation could go on for ten to fourteen days as water system tries to settle down that right? They're scared. A lot of folks the mayor said, well, it was only a few days possibly miscommunication happened because what was discussed there was a two week planning period as opposed to a two week anticipated event period Delasin emergency coordinator at the county. He may be right. We got this hurricane Willard. That's come in this direction. The next four or five days. We're going to have a lot of rainfall. So what what's that? Look. I think we're going to have a lot of rain today. Yeah. A lot of rain today. And we have a lot of rain in the forecast. Yes. Yeah. So. Yeah, that that could certainly add to it for sure. They're just they're thinking worst case scenarios what they're doing. And that's I mean, that's a good idea. But what what I've realized I'm trying to clear up the confusion. The county said fourteen days the city has said no not that lie spoke with the folks with with some of our largest retailers, and there's plenty of water. There's just a limited space in stores to whole pallets of water. Now, the latest Alex suggest if it doesn't rain too bad this boil water notice could be over in a handful of days that's much shorter. Timeframe the county reported just yesterday morning saying it could be up to fourteen days. The mayor said, no, no, no not that much. We're just preparing for that worst case scenario, which is not a bad plan. What I've realized that the city doesn't know what the hell they're doing with water period, in any way, shape or form. I mean, they they don't know how to clean it. If we have more rain than usual. They certainly don't know how to charge us for it. They don't know how to how to keep it in swimming pools. They're not good with water. How does mayor Adler get reelected with that in mind? Think about it. And now he he's probably gonna say, well, hey, those weren't my I'm not to blend. Don't blame me. Well, you're the guy at the top. Yeah. Who do we can't get people's bills? Right. You can't keep pulls from leaking literally millions and millions of gallons of water. Yeah. I mean, imagine how much we we would have if those polls weren't leaky. Right. You know what I mean? Right. Yeah. This is new territory for him. And it's it's been a bit sloppy. If he asked me, there's no telling how long they were aware of this before I totally if you're going to the polls in Austin, do not reelect anyone that's currently on the city council, vote them all out vote them all out until you get the candidates in office that you support and actually do look out for your best interest and don't try to stir the pot and controversy all the time talking about the Adler and the Greg Kosovars of the world, you know, the ones that took that journey a few months ago to go see the babies that are being ripped from mommy's hands at the borders. Right. Remember when they went down there to to say how mean, oh, Mr. Trump is because he's ripping babies out of the wombs of mothers coming across the border. But what are they doing? Now, you've got an estimated ten thousand that are approaching the border. I love the way the left doesn't give a rip about their safety as they're making that fifteen sixteen hundred mile journey on foot in death. Mayhem. Sleeping in the streets and being victimized along the way. They don't give a rip about him Adler. Don't give a rip about the convoys it's making its way, but they will care about them when they get to the border. So they can use him as a political tool. And boy, I'm sure they're hoping on arrival just about the six now while much has been made of this caravan of seven thousand in growling, and why are they waving their own countries flags? What if you're so proud of you're leaving your country makes it look like an invasion in the hallway Channing mean things how this country's racist? The president is Hitler. Why are you making your way this direction? Let me ask you something since we know these people. There's no doubt about it. They're trying to make their way to the US border, the US Mexico border trying. There's no question. Since we know that is it possible for our armed forces to go in and had them off at the pass before they get anywhere close to the US Mexico border is for is for their own safety. Yes is the humanitarian mission led by the UN. They should land. Helicopters C one thirties right there in the middle of this convoy and say, he we're here to help we're setting up tents. You don't have to go all the way there. We got food and water and protection for you here. Edmund make goes south those Central American countries, Mexico Guatemala, Honduras, make them pay for taking care of their own people. And you're not going to a remote local immigration. Attorney Jorge Rodriguez says the threat of detention in this country that does not deter these people from making that journey. I think the lesson that we learned from the zero tolerance policy and the hard line that even in August when people were prosecuted for illegally entering the United States. There was thirty eight percent increase in the amount of people that were coming across the border. Now, this immigration attorney. He says he says he claimed he says the claims of that caravan contains gang members or terrorist is simply rhetoric to justify the creation of a border wall. Well, that's Bravo. Sierras? Well, we've had state rep Tony down on the show. Many times to highlight the people that are caught crossing this border illegally from Yemen from Pakistan China from China from Canada from Canada. You got the Canadians sneaking in the southern border. You're probably up to no good. You're focused five check on traffic. Here's don. Usual delays building out there on the major thoroughfares got a few little wrecks that are adding to the delays here. And there we've got one southbound thirty five at the eastbound ramp to to ninety so a little bit slow there. Another one out on decker at lyrical trail down prior with Austin's on for free quote today. We'll be overcast and quite cool. We have a flash flood watch in effect to this evening. We'll have occasional rain for this morning. Then a steadier rain heavy at times this afternoon with some flooding likely high near sixty still some rain early tonight. Then.

"A Bill. Doc head percents. Not fifty. Yeah. The I've said at the White House will push a resolution within the next two weeks. The White House spokesperson Lindsey Walters called part of transfer Trump's tax reform two point. Oh plan a following up with Republican tax reform Bill passed in two thousand seventeen he says will vote on it sometime after November sixth after the election. Yeah. He got a big round of applause last night at the at the rally in Houston talking about that. But yeah, I'm wondering if that's one of the things that he came out with as he's getting on the helicopter yesterday afternoon to fly out and people in the background are going. What what what what is he talking about in north Austin good morning? Hey, good morning guys. Definitely interesting timing. Caravan coming in the November election. Sure. Yeah. I have no idea that has anything to do with anything. But what why can't we just bring them in a little better time? But amount of transport plane, Dr Guatemala. I mean is there a role in this catch-and-release? Is it a half things? Whether it is a law. That's the law on the books. Here's here's a right to get in chat. Here's what's surprising to me. I take that back. It's not surprising. I don't see anyone who wants to open borders running to the border right now to pick up one of the seven thousand adults that are coming across this border. I don't see anybody. I don't see the Greg Kosovars or the mayor Adler making a rush to the border to help save people. Like, they did when so many people were locked up in and separated from their families right now Univision news anchor Jorges Ramos, he reports he says reports of an invasion of migrants towards the US border are being blown out of proportion by the president's ram also reported. Well, he's he's reporting from the border, and he spoke with Fox News last night on this issue. He's he says Mexican law enforcement has been acting as Trump's police in all of this. So some of them. Yes, helping deported. The majority not multi and something really important is that the vast majority of these people are not criminals, they're not terrorists. And they're not even immigrants the refugees and assassination in the United States. We have to choose what kind of nation. We are. And treat them with respect to we cannot prejudge them. We cannot say all of them are all of them. That is not true. He's he he he lives in America. He lives in America. Does why? Why hari? Hey ramos. Why do you live in America? I'm just begging for him to answer that question. So what we have to do is to listen to them. The case has any surplus then run to them, according to what asked by the Gallup world poll, fifty seven million people in Latin America, and the Caribbean would like to come to the United States. But you simply do you do you recommend that they should all be allowed in? I mean at what point is there? I mean, how how is this going to work leave the border open? Everyone just out of the goodness of everyone's hearts. Welcome in fifty seven million people. Eventually, no. So what what what do you recommend? I I'm not for open borders. I understand what you're saying. I am not for open borders. That the immigration system that we have right now is simply not working. He's not working for everyone. Trump's immigration policies that complete failure. It has some work enforcement only, it's not Trump's immigration policy. It's the it's the policy that was approved by all of the lawmakers, Democrats and Republicans it doesn't work, and what we need legal immigration system that really works now despite the optics. I know that if you are in the United States, and you are watching this that you might think all we're going to be invaded. That is not true. There's no invasion here. We're talking about seven thousand right now, maybe a few thousand more trying to cross the border to Mexico, and what am I gonna make it to Texas? Mexico has Donny sparks Pinedo, unfortunately for many immigrants Mexicans and central Americans. The Mexican police has become Trump's immigration police. That's the truth. Dr jump in here..

"Out a way to fight venue here in town to host the Todd Don show Austin police appreciation night, they'll get a couple of bands couple of speakers. And maybe we should do it ahead of the of the November election when city council members are trying to get reelected and trying to persuade you to vote. Yes. On bond packages. Maybe we do it before that you're thinking of something bigger than a pizza buffet. I'm thinking something bigger than buffet warehouse. A bigger arenas something where we could get two three four five thousand folks in have a couple of musicians play some songs, maybe Kim Cassidy can speed. Well, invite Jimmy Flanagan to speak in just show our support for law enforcement in this area. We could turn it into a law enforcement palooza law enforcement, south by south west alike from all across the state to shipboard Austin police, you're an idea, man. And I like every word that just came out of your mouth. What do you need a venue? Meet somebody's garage wing. Find a venue. We can find something. Yeah. Soccer stadium. Soccer not Bill yet. That's not built yet. So they got that taken care of before the police contract. They got their priority was let's make sure we have a big place where people can kick balls. Yes. Steve is on moped. Good morning. Steve. Hey, good morning guys. I'm kind of curious whenever you talk to the police union guy is is it possible for Austin police to go on strike. I don't I don't. I don't see that happening. I don't that care too much about what they do other cities have. But I don't see that happening. And and I kinda feel like. You know, if that happened I would kind of support that issue because I feel like they've been getting jerked around. And you can't tell me that some boondoggle for a soccer team that ended up being a worst deal than anything that they intended. Right. You know, and and they can get that sorted out. But they can't give the police the time of day to sit down and talk to them about it. Yeah. Immensely disrespectful to the very people that we count on to protect us to keep us safe to take care of us when the floods come when there's a traffic accident or any of these things so for for the city council. If they're on their diet, like they're just some kind of more Dover all day survey. And that the police don't matter it's an insult to every first responder in city. And here's the other thing, Steve the other side of this the rank and file citizens voters tax payers are really outraged by this and you see nothing for mayor Adler, Jimmy Flanagan. Greg Kosovars any of them stepping up to a microphone to talk about how much they support Austin pulling up. None of them have even attempted to try to smooth this over there, not saying they're just ignoring it. It's an insult to everyone. It really is. I mean, I mean. I think the people would respect mayor Adler. He held a press conference or called this show and said, listen guys, I support police. Here's how I support police. We just have a little disagreement on some of the details. Here it is. Here are the problems. We're having. Here's why we have it. They're just not saying a word now, they're not king Casadei finally bowls over yesterday. I'm surprised it's taken this long and they're going. Hey, hey, hey, hey. Like. They're not even gonna listen to a word. He's saying they're more focused on the fact that he his voice was raised. He might have said a curse word. Well, Ken Cassidy, he's gonna call this show at nine o'clock this morning, and he actually posted a story or a text or an opinion piece. If you will on our Facebook page, the totted Don show Facebook page, and he's sending this message out to the members of the police union, and it reads in nine months that Spencer cronk has been our city manager in Austin that leadership at the Austin police association as only been able to secure a thirty minute introductory meeting with Spencer crock. He did not meet with us to talk about asking opinion about the selection process for police chief he has not met with us about the historically. Low morale or department has been experiencing has not spoken with us about anything related to meet and confer negotiations. What he has done is refusing to grant the city's labor relations office the authority to actually do the job negotiate the labor contracts with public safety association members by not empowering the labor relations office to actually make any decisions. It often times feels like, quote, we the police officers are talking to puppets. When we don't get to sit down and go, she ate, our even collaborate, sure. And it looks like that too. I completely agree with him. How you be in a position that the city council people are as far as what their job entails what they're there to do. It. You have the police force when the most important components to our safety. Maybe the most important component to our safety here in Austin asking for things and they're being ignored. That is extraordinary to me. There are no words. There's no there's nothing in my mind that can even begin to get around that that previous caller that talked about, you know, do you think they'll go on strike police officers in the state of Texas cannot go on strike. That's illegal. Well, I could understand maybe in back of your mind wanted to go screw it. I'm not going in. But you know, what these guys care too much about what they do got a text message here from a musician. That says let us know the southern sparrows would love to play law enforcement palooza hosted by the Todd dodge shell gotta hear demo. Leo palooza. That's we're going to call out of here demo that'd be awesome. Let me ask you a question. Just real quick real quickly. All right, go right ahead. Maybe a little music for.

Have it just as bad as Houston? Cops. Maybe even a little bit. Worse than Houston to Dallas because of just the sixth street, and all the other streets that are just seems like, you know. People are smoking party bus stops. You know what I mean? It's just like there's so much out there. So the ones that everybody calls keep things from postal.

At the Austin city council does not like policemen and policemen. Awesome has the better it is has that field. Yeah. No, absolutely. Jim you're spot on. I mean, the the Jimmy Flanagan's the Adler and the Greg Kosovars on the council. They're the ones that like to go to the border and say we need to get rid of ice. We hate law enforcement. They're the ones that made the allegations that ice officials were torturing babies along the border. They don't like law enforcement in general, and on top of that the more experienced and mature cops that are leaving the better because they immature cops in there that are more mistakes and poke fun at him layer to whole big pile of chaos. I got. Gotcha. Jim. Thank you, man. I appreciate it. It is seven forty five. We take a look at Austin's on time traffic. Here's melinda.
