The Power of State Legislatures
"Debbie and I have been talking about the power of state legislatures to address issues in particularly election issues. I mean, look at this. Look at the not just GOP dominance in all these states, but it's the degree of dominance. I'm just going to read very quickly Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming. And again, those are the states in which Republicans dominate both houses, but the margins are huge. Look at Wyoming. The Senate Republicans 28. It doesn't surprise me in white. And the house. 55 to 5. 5 to 5. But look at Texas, honey, Senate, 19 to 12 House 86 to 64. So I mean, you're not talking about one seat or two seat. You're talking about decisive majority. What Republicans say in these states go? Yeah. Those.

Pastor Paul Chappell: What's the Faith-Base of Those 12 Republicans?
"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,
The 12 Republican Traitors Who Supported 'Respect for Marriage Act'
"Yesterday about this respect for marriage act, and in a nutshell, this is going to put a target on every single church Christian school, Christian business owner in America. You're a nonprofit. They're going to yank your tax exempt status. That's what's going to happen with this. So they had to pass this thing. There was a major hurdle they had to pass, and they were able to do it last night. 12 Senate Republicans joined Democrats. To push through this plan to codify gay marriage. And again, this is not about gay marriage. This is about not protecting religious liberty. And there's a very good chance if this thing gets passed and it looks like it'll be passed with the entire Senate momentarily, and then it goes back to the house. And the house is going to pass it, and Biden's going to sign this into law. And then you will get a knock on the front door of your church from the Internal Revenue Service. That's what this is all about. So here are the 12 senators who joined the Democrats and I'm going to share these names, then you need to call these senators and you need to give them the what for. And then I want you to call us back and tell us what they said. But these are the senators who, by the way, previously were opposed to gay marriage to get elected, but now that they're in office, all of a sudden they've had a change of heart. So here they are. Roy blunt, Richard burr. Shelley capito, Susan Collins, Joni Ernst from Iowa, shame on you, Joni Ernst, Cynthia Loomis, Lisa Murkowski, typical rob Portman, Dan Sullivan, Mitt Romney, Tom tell us and Todd young.
DeSantis Vs. Trump; Who Should Win?
"In the straw polls or whatever term would be used in the polling in Iowa and other states desantis is more favored than president Trump. I beg Trump supporters to understand that any Republican is better than any Democrat. That the gulf is unbridgeable. That's it. That's all I'm asking, I'm asking of people, I was a passionate defender of the president, I claim to this day, I said to his face at Mar-a-Lago a few months ago, thought he was the finest president in Abraham Lincoln. Kink a more supportive than that. But my bigger agenda than Donald Trump is defeating the Democratic Party, which is now a left wing party for the first time in American history. It was largely liberal. It is now left, and the left destroys everything it touches.
Steve Deace Dives Into the Fiasco That Is the Mid-Term Elections
"Welcome back guys promised our friend Steve dais that's DEA CE. He's with blaze TV radio, Steve welcome. Oh, it's good to be back with the Eric, how are you, man? Well, I'm blessed. I know I'm blessed, but we're going through a tough time as a nation. I was, I've been saying that for me, the big issue is what the Democrats have done to our election system. There is fraud. There is stealing. And I don't see any establishment Republicans even mentioning it. And I think to myself, if you don't have confidence that our elections are being run fairly and that it takes weeks and whatever it count, I don't know how you even have a country anymore. So that to me seems to be the number one issue. And I think a lot of Americans just think, well, what happened? Why is it taking so long to do this? So I don't know if you want to talk about that. Sure, we can get into that. And you know, I'm a big sports guy. So I like to make sports analogies. All right, so imagine you were a football coach and there were 12 instant replay reviews in a game. And all 12 went against you. I mean, statistically, the odds of that would just be astronomical. They would be beyond overwhelming, okay? That you would lose all 12. And what you're watching here on a statewide basis. Is in the last two cycles whenever there have been these late counts that go on and on and on and on. Democrats win them every single time. Now, as Christians, we have an obligation to not bear false witness. We are commanded where that is concerned. So vote splitting does happen, for example, in my home state of Iowa are very popular governor who has quietly been a Ron DeSantis against COVID just doesn't have the bombast or the fanfare. She weigh outperform Charles grassley that people are sick of, okay? So vote vote splitting does occur.

Trump Expected to Announce Run for President
"Okay, so Trump's announcement one week from tonight. There are already people who are saying, Trump will announce for the presidency one week from tonight. That absolutely may happen. It absolutely may. I'm like the only guy who holds out the possibility that he's, I'm gonna say trolling us, it may be trolling his haters, which will work, that this may all be a bit of a drama train at the end of which he decides to remain the most important and impactful political figure in America. But do it from private life. He could announce a week from tonight. You know how crazy early this is. He could announce a week from tonight, a Lucy goosey announcement of sorts. And then just kind of go, I'm good, this desantis guy is all right. And let Ron just go have it. And I will believe it, I will totally believe it when I see his name on actual ballots in Iowa and New Hampshire for 2024. That's when I'll totally believe it.
Why Were We Able to Know the Winner of the 2016 Election in Hours?
"On earth then were we able to know the winner of the 2016 presidential election within hours? Why is it that we were able to know that Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton with Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Arizona, having enough ballots be counted so what is different about 2016 versus 2020 versus 2022. What's the difference exactly? Oh, the difference is that they changed some of the laws. And they changed some of the procedures because they never want 2016 to happen again. You see, in 2008, 2012 and 16 presidential elections, we know who wins on election night. We know who wins and we see how they're doing and that kind of orderly necessary process of I lost this person is the next president or whatever is very important. It's healthy. So why is it that 6 years later, we're moving backwards. So we can know Donald Trump won the presidency on election night in 2016. Why were we able to count those ballots mister Biden orderly and mannerly and in an organized fashion in 2016, but we can't do it in 2022. Executive director in Arizona of Maricopa County said here is the canvas schedule. The canvas schedule is early ballots will be posted on the evening of November 8th at 8 p.m.. The next election day results will be posted around 2 a.m. in Arizona. And then there will just be ballots ongoing for days and days and days and days and days to come.
A Look at Gubernatorial Polls With Charlie Pierce
"Speaking of electorally, there's a glitter of hope you retweeted that chuck grassley's and it's statistical tie. Someone tweeted, I was gonna go blue, blue tsunami incoming and you just said, hello. Yeah, I mean, yeah, this is a race that nobody's noticed. Right. Right. And you know, I wonder, the guy who's running against, by the way, his name, Mike Franken. Yeah. And I'm wondering how many people in Iowa think they're voting for Al Franken. That's fine. You know, seriously. And it's life and death for old chuck and he's not, you know, he's built for comforting and built for speed. He's not built for the home stretch right now. Yeah. So who knows? I mean, I mean, I think you're going to, I think what you are going to see is a lot of split ticket voters. Yeah. Yeah. For example, I think in Iowa, Kim Reynolds is probably going to get reelected governor. But grassley could lose. Yeah. Whitmer's going to win. You know, I think the democratic gubernatorial candidates are in great shape. Do you? I hope so. Tony Evers in Wisconsin, I'm sending novena upwards for, but I think a lot of them, I think a lot of them are going to survive more Healy's going to win, you know, from here or there in Massachusetts, not the typical of anything. Right. Right. But you know, I guess it is astounding that statistical speaking of statistical ties, Herschel Walker. Has gone up despite all these allegations. I don't believe any of the polling out of Georgia. I really don't. Nobody's been able to predict Georgia correctly for about ten years now. Yeah. I think that there's a whopping big vote down there who doesn't want to be represented in Congress by, you know, inarticulate doof.

Texas Is the Cash Cow for Presidential Elections
"If those of you elsewhere are wondering if my state is about to turn purple or turn blue. That's going to be a big fat no here in two weeks from today, Greg Abbott is going to win and it's not going to be that close. Our lieutenant governor Dan Patrick is going to win and it ain't going to be that close. Our attorney general Ken Paxton is going to win. I thought that one might be close. I no longer do. This is a red state. We're going to fortify our role as such. Here's why everybody in Iowa and Utah and Alabama and Florida and Oregon and why conservatives ought to care about this is because if Texas is ever lost, if we are ever no longer a red state, you will never elect a Republican president again. We have 40 honking electoral votes now. 40, we have upped ourselves to 38 congressional seats plus our two senators. That's how you calculate your state's electoral votes. And so we have 40. Now, and so that's an 80 vote swing, an 80 electoral vote, swing. And look at how close a lot of the past elections have been, you take 40 away from the Republican nominee and hand them over to the Democrat camp. That is an 80 electoral vote swing, good luck. So yes, my state is important. And I am spending every day prodding and cajoling everybody listening in my state to get out there and vote our early voting is underway and with that we find an interesting quandary because I have never been a fan of early voting. I'm telling everybody to do it. I'm not stupid.

"iowa" Discussed on The Lead
"So Jesse, when you look at how this Iowa state team was put together, it seems like it's really a transfer portal success story. Does it feel like they're building something sustainable in Ames? Or did they just catch lightning in a bottle with the guys they brought in this year? Well, October hit on every transfer that he brought in, no question about it. Four of the top 6 leading scorers are seniors, tyrese hunter was the big 12 freshman of the year this season, so that's a pretty good starting point moving forward. Of course, with the transfer portal, you can never be too sure about who might leave, but I think otzelberger has shown he knows what he's looking for in the transfer portal and can get players to buy in. TJ, you know, the way that he presented the school, the way he presented his plan, his vision, and he sold me on the opportunity turning around a program that had had a couple of down years. I think otzelberger has established a blueprint for success that can be sustainable. So this NCAA tournament has really been set up perfectly in a way for Iowa state because now they face the number ten seed Miami on Friday night with a real shot to get to the elite 8. What are you expecting in that game? It's sort of a contrast of styles, Miami escort at least 70 points and 11 of its last 12 games, an average of 74.7 points per game. Comes outside the more. Nice give up ahead the one at Miami back in front by 12. I was looking for a little show time there. I think if the hurricanes hit 70, the cyclones are in trouble, Iowa state has to do what it has done already in this tournament, which is frustrated its opponent by forcing tough shots. LSU and Wisconsin combined to make just 6 of 41 three point attempts. Making Miami play Iowa states pace in keeping this game in the 50s or low 60s is probably the recipe for cyclone success. Well, finally, Jesse, obviously they have to get past Miami first, but if they do, they've got either number ones you Kansas or number four Providence waiting for them. Does TJ axel burgers team have what it takes to take this Cinderella run all the way to the final four? These players have heard all season about the fact that people thought they weren't going to be very good. Tyrese hunter said, I'm pretty sure everybody had us last in everything. I mean, I remember when he went a lot of people came in and said that I always looked at the guys, so that's motivation. Pretty sure everybody had us last, and everything we even would have played in this year, but you know, it just showed that the work that we put in and it just showed that, you know, we stayed true to ourselves. I would never say I was state can't do it. There have been 5 teams seated number 11 that have reached the final four including UCLA last season. I think if I was state is going to pull it off, it will have to be on the strength of its defense with just enough offense coming from the core of its rotation. I also think it's worth noting that I was state plagued Kansas twice this season. The first matchup came on the road in Lawrence in January. In a game that featured four lead changes over the final 38 seconds. Iowa state lost that game 62 to 61 on a Kansas bucket with 8 seconds left, but a few weeks later, at home, played another close game with KU, KU won that one 70 61. The cyclones certainly have what it takes to keep this ride going a little bit longer, and now it's up to them to do it for two more games and get to the final four. Wow. Well, thank you so much for telling us this story, Jesse. I know that they're not Wisconsin, but still seems like a fun team to be covering. Definitely. Thanks for having me on.

"Iowa state beat number 25 Xavier, number 9 Memphis. And you want to talk about a statement para games for the Iowa state cyclones. They are putting the rest of the big 12 in the rest of the country on notice. They also beat creighton and in state rival Iowa, and Memphis creighton and Iowa all were NCAA tournament teams this season. But the Iowa Hawkeye's got manhandled by the Iowa state cyclones. The 17th ranked cyclones remain undefeated. Even though I was state went 7 and 11 in the big 12 regular season, the cyclones had built a strong resume to earn an at large birth in the NCAA tournament. The turnaround is complete. After a two year hiatus from the NCAA tournament, Iowa state is back in the big dance, just one year after winning only two games, first year head coach TJ atzelberg, piecemealed a mostly brand new team together and then led the cyclones to 20 wins and an NCAA tournament bid. As you're a Jesse Iowa state is not especially good at scoring or shooting. And they haven't topped 60 points in either of their tournament wins. So what is it about this team? Right, as you said, this is an Iowa state team that ranks 298th in the country and scoring offense 221st in field goal shooting and 261st and three point shooting. But what this Iowa state team does have is toughness and a desire to excel defensively. The putback is turn back Jordan Davis bluffs by coots and Iowa state gets a timeout. During Iowa state's victory against Wisconsin, for example, the cyclones held first team all America guard Johnny Davis to just four of 16 shooting from the field. And they also flustered the badgers with passing lane pressure and post double teams that contributed to a season high 17 turnovers, and this team is playing in the mold of its head coach. We're not going to apologize for how we have to win and we're not going to apologize for aesthetically how it may look. Their winners. I'm proud of them. We're just going to keep being who we can be.

"Table? I was being good. I mean, I think that you look at players like Megan Gustafson and Kathleen Doyle and you can go back much farther than that. But they've had Big Ten player of the year types, what it needed was a star to take it over the top to achieve something that hadn't been achieved in decades, which is bringing Iowa to a final four. That at the end of the day was the draw for Caitlin Clark, elevating the program and elevating Iowa women's basketball to a level it hasn't seen was very, very much a driving factor. I mean, that was what Iowa coaches solder on. I think she thought it too. If she had went other places, Notre-Dame Yukon. I mean, even Iowa state some degree, I mean, you name it, she's just another person in the line of people who have done good things there. She's already going to be one of the all time greats in Iowa, but she will be even all time great her if she can push them to a final four toward a national championship while doing all the things she's doing. And that's why she's there at the end of the day. Now, in your profile of her, you talked about an early morning practice where Clark was creating a bit of a stir. Can you talk about that a bit? And what it revealed about Clark? She's a very, very dramatic person in a good way. So in this particular morning, the entire team walked in for a practice, someone had missed calibrated thermometer or the heat in the gym that day, and it was really, really, really oppressively hot. Inside the gym. And as assistant coach Abby stamp put it to me, the Broadway show from Caitlin Clark ensued. She came in and the practice she was hot. And I mean, the kid was just so dramatic about asking coach blur to turn on the AC and get the air going. It's too hot in here. I mean, just like she was putting on, you know, a Broadway show. Iowa head coach Lisa bluder knows that she has almost a clown on her hands, but that she can be extremely, extremely competitive when the time comes to be competitive. Oh, she's a goof. She goes both ways. Like, you know, she's very competitive and like, you know, that way, but then she's completely goofy. Like, she's the person that you would love to be, like, best friends with her when you were in junior high and high school. You know, she's just fun. Looter knows that Caitlyn Clark can work that balancing act to the benefit of Caitlyn Clark to perform, but also to the benefit of the team to make sure everyone's still enjoys her company. It has fun with her on the floor. It makes her more human. Like, you know, to her teammates, like, if she was just the other way, just getting on them all the time or just like this competitive person all the time. First of all, I think she would not have any fun with her life, but second of all, I think her teammates would kind of be like, oh man, you know, here we go again, but when she's lacks like that, if she wasn't that way, if she wasn't fun to be around and fun to play with, this just wouldn't work. So her goofy personality, putting a smile on people's faces, honestly is probably as critical a part to her success in Iowa's success as anything else. Well, another interesting part of your story was about how Caitlyn Clark has developed a relationship with Kevin Durant. So can you explain how that came about and what that relationship is like? Kevin Durant saw her play at this Nike national event and watched this girl handle the ball and control the action and dominate at the highest level in a championship game of that summer season and just thought, yo, who is this girl? She always had the ball in her hand. Everybody was playing off of her. She just commanded the whole game. Who the hell is this? She is nice. It's like, oh, she's the best player in the country. I was like, oh, damn, I see it now. Like when you walk in, you don't even know who from there, they essentially continued to build a relationship. I mean, Caitlin Clark is a regular on Kevin Durant's Instagram. She might be Kevin Durant's favorite women's basketball player pro or college. From that, Caitlin Clark sees a model in Kevin Durant of how to use basketball to build a life outside of basketball. Let me build my own little Caitlin Clark Inc empire. And that's really been what they'll probably eventually talk about. When Kevin Durant talked to us for the story, he said they haven't really sat down and chopped up. You know, how to be a mogul. That's not been a conversation that they've had, but he said he's there for that conversation when Caitlyn Clark wants to have it. She will. I mean, she'll want to have that conversation at some point in time because this guy who saw her play and saw her stand out and saw her look like something other than when she was just a high school player really is the model for her about what to be now and into the future. And along those lines you also wrote about how Caitlyn Clark has been building a brand for herself through name image and likeness opportunities. So how exactly is she managing that world and what are her goals? She's taking small steps. This is not her being on every commercial for every major brand in the country at this point. The first real major partnership that she has is with high V grocery stores, which is a large chain of grocery stores in Iowa and other Midwest states. Partly because it's sort of an Iowa homegrown brand and she sees herself as a homegrown Iowa girl, partly because she just loves high V grocery stores as it turns out. And goes there several times a week. And she's done Facebook Live, Q&A's. She did a Facebook Live cooking show that I attended. Caitlin's gonna start making some buffalo chicken dip for the big game. This is my favorite, by the way. It's my favorite buffalo chicken dips. My go to pregame for any of these. She and hidey chef put together some Super Bowl snacks while she was answering questions that were rolling in on the Facebook Live itself. Jamie asked, what are some of your favorite meals to eat? Oh, that's a good question. Honestly, I'm not a very picky eater. I like a lot of different things. I mean, steak is definitely probably my favorite. I like pretty much any type of pasta, chicken Alfredo, especially a night before games. I usually I mean, it's not trying to chase down globally recognized brands right away. It starting relatively small, but not insignificantly to get her name into the mix to get her name out there and build up her own personal brand. Well, given all the off the court stuff that she's doing all the attention that she gets, her tendency to be a bit dramatic and the fact that she shoots the ball so much, you would think she could rub her teammates the wrong way, or that there could be some resentment there. So how is she navigating that? So it certainly does help that when you're the nation's leading assist giver that clearly means you are setting your teammates up. So that's certainly helps. Iowa in general, and I think because it's had some pretty stars with some pretty heavy gravitational pull lately, like Caitlyn Clark, the Iowa coaching staff is very, very, very cognizant to maintain the theme that everyone matters. Everyone matters in our program. Caitlin is not a star without everybody all around her. And so even though they are getting the extra attention and so that's different for them that these other people feel really valued. And I don't think kind of worked with Caitlyn Clark too as a leader. Over the summer, she went through some exercises from a captain's manual, a leadership book, to try and understand how to better bring those teammates along and to kind of build them up a little bit more and my aim was to help her understand what her role as a leader has to be. It's not just being the best player on the floor. It's not just being ultra competitive, but it's also being.

"Empire. Plus, a look at some of the other favorites in the women's NCAA tournament. From wondering in the athletic, I'm Tiffany oshinsky, it's Thursday, march 10th, and this is the lead. Brian Hamilton, thank you so much for joining us on the lead once again. Happy to be here. Okay, so Brian, I wanted to start with a game that you wrote about recently. Specifically the one between Iowa and Michigan that happened back in February. Can you talk about Caitlyn Clark's performance in the game and what it revealed about her? Iowa was down a lot of points going into the fourth quarter and it's back to a 12 point game. I was still fighting as feeling. She felt like something had to be done and what she decided to do was take a lot of shots from the logo near court. On Michigan's floor and make many of them. Are you kidding me? Caitlin Clark from the logo. Probably some of the most ridiculous shot making we've seen in college basketball, men or women, as far as I can remember. Another deep three from Caitlin Clark. Incredible. What did she do? What did she just do? Her reasoning for doing that was my team's done a lot of points. I thought, why not? And I was just like, yep, why not? Let's let Caitlin bring us back. And she pretty much almost did it. They didn't win the game, but were it not for Caitlin Clark doing some fairly ridiculous things with her shot. They would not have even come close. Yeah, I mean, shooting from almost half court is pretty impressive. But let's look at some of her other impressive stats. Now, Clark, as we mentioned, led the nation in both scoring and assists during the regular season. She's the first woman ever to do that. She has 6 triple doubles, including back to back 30 point triple doubles. And a whole bunch of other eye popping stats. So I have to ask, how is she doing it? Beyond her willingness to fire up three point bombs from very deep. What else stands out to you about her game? She's always been an amazing passer. Her vision, Kylie fear back, one of her teammates says that her mom says that Caitlin Clark literally has hawk eyes. Like she can just see the court that well. But she's always been that way. She's just been this good and this audacious. And this sort of brave and without a hint of self doubt ever since she came out of the womb. This is just who she is. I think I just had this competitive spirit in me that. I mean, I just grew up playing sports. I think that was number one. My family, that's just kind of like what we did. And then I just kind of had this passion for it understood that I was good at it, kind of ahead of everybody else, but she's always been able to handle the ball at an elite level. She's always been able to pass the ball at an elite level. And then the shooting obviously is an inherent talent, but it's something that she diligently works on day after day after day. Her going to the gym and shooting is her comfortable space. That's what she does to relax. She goes to the gym and shoots. But sometimes it's nice to just go in there by herself and have that peace and quiet away from your phone or away from other people, your Friends, your teammates, just have that alone time to just think relax, you know, get some shots up. So part of it is just this is who she was born as and part of it is, this is what she continues to work to be day after day. Well, let's talk about young Caitlyn Clark because Brian, you recently spoke with Clark and her family and wrote a wonderful profile of her. And you took up some really great stories about her early years. And there are a couple stories in particular that I think illustrate how she had this sense of self belief that you talked about from a very early age. So can you tell us about her bike riding as well as the story about math homework? Right, so her dad was teaching her older brother Blake how to ride a bicycle and Blake, I believe, is two or three years older and then Caitlin. So they're out in their driveway in Iowa and dad is teaching older brother how to ride a bicycle when little Caitlyn wanders out finds their own bike, jumps on and immediately starts riding. Without a single lesson without a single pointer and her dad was flabbergasted. Just at the idea that this little girl would have the idea that she could do this without any worry or doubt or hesitation, she jumped on the bike and she just went. That is sort of who Caitlyn Clark is. She decides to do something and she just goes ahead and does it. And that is sort of the driving philosophy in her life. As far as the math homework goes, I mean, in first or second grade, you know, there was a sort of mini math competition or test at school in which you had to answer a certain amount of questions in a certain time, and there was always one boy in the class who Caitlyn Clark could never be. So she would go home and create flashcards for herself and study and prepare specifically for this math exercise just so she could beat this one boy in her class when she was in grade school, which as someone who has had grade school kids, I can't even fathom people wanting to study and wanting to do flashcard stuff just to beat someone else in their class at a math game, no one cares about no one. Remember, but Caitlin Clark will remember it. Caitlin Clark will remember and her family remember her having that competitive nature on and off the floor from the start. Well as you mentioned, Clark was born with a competitive streak. But how much of a role did the rest of her family play in putting that trait into overdrive? Yeah, I mean, she has a very, very athletic family. Her dad played college sports Blake her older brother as a quarterback at Iowa state. The family when it got together very large family would always play games on holidays. There's 20 of us cousins and we're super close and I'm smashed between all the boy cousins and whenever we got together for family Christmas, Easter or whatever. I mean, we would be playing sports and I would just get picked on. I would cry all the time. I wouldn't be allowed to play with them. There was the classic basement who were her and her older brother and younger brother would go at it, often drawing blood and breaking things like most competitive families will do. Yeah, I remember one time we had like this little nerf hoop in our basement and I was fine with my younger brother and I got so mad at him. They're like play basketball each other. I just shoved him like smacked his head on the corner of a wall like right into the corner like gushing blond like my mom had to take him to get stable. Oh, it was crazy. We would have all these fights and she has been sort of incubated to be a high level competitor by virtue of her surroundings. It just sort of amplified that part of her. And now, I mean, it's just everything. Everything she wants to do, she wants to be whoever she's against. I mean, I like to think I'm good at most things. 'cause I'm so competitive. I hate losing, so whether we're playing like a card game as a team or like board game, like I don't want to lose, I'll tell you I'm good at. Well, the competitiveness definitely paid off because by the time she finished high school, Clark was one of the top prospects in the country. And she also really had her pick of schools to attend. Now, Iowa is not exactly known as a women's basketball powerhouse. So why did she choose to head to Iowa City over all the other options on the.

"You're not focused on a particular rule style right now. But do you ever see wrestling as bigger than all of this as one of the pure combats? I do. And we're raising $20 million for a facility to make it the best facility on the planet. We have a vision to build the best facility on Planet Earth and put the best wrestlers in it. And that is bigger than wrestling. It's for the university of Iowa. And our donors are doing it for the university of Iowa. But it is about the value of wrestling to me also. There is so much value to resin. Blind, blind people don't play football. They wrestle. Blind people don't play basketball. I mean, maybe they do. But it means very difficult. They can wrestle. Wrestling is a feel sport. Yeah, there's no ball. There's nothing just too guys that two girls and that's it. That's right. And I mean, I'm not going to say you can't, because somebody will get a hold of this and I'll get an email or a letter that says you said Blaine people can't play baseball and blah blah. I'm just saying that blind people can wrestle very effectively. I've wrestled with my eyes shut. I mean, was an honest about it too. And I was effective. So why was I able to be effective? Because wrestling is a sport that you can overcome a lot. Your demons that you're overcoming, they're not limited with whether I'm blind or not. The demons that are overcoming are inside you, you have to overcome those demons from within. So what's the future of Iowa wrestling look like with this facility in this momentum you have now and this great group of guys, you have no. We have a good young group of guys and you know, there is a lot of buzz in the program and probably hasn't been this much buzz for quite some time.

"It's the same. And I like to live wrestling. I was always wanting to bring the warm up into the live wrestle, let's go. But where I got really, really good was a repetition. And I was disciplined enough to know that the things that you hate to do in this sport are the things that make you the very best. And that is a rare ingredient as I've gotten older. And you spend a lot of time communicating that to younger athletes. So the thing if you feel yourself hating something, that's probably the thing you should be doing. Yes, as a matter of fact, I had a strength coach when I was really young. He was just working guy that when he wore white, like he was almost like a nurse, nurses clothes. He wore all white from head to toe and he was in Cheyenne Wyoming and his first name was Walt. And he taught Terry knight to hate the bar away from you on that last rep when you're dead. And whether it's a curl, you hate it up. And then you do the negative and you hate it down and you hate that bench up and you hate it. You look at the bar and you hate it away from you. So, you know, I learned and I was young. I was young. And I remember being born, my mom's sister lived out there and we were dropped off to stay out there with our cousins. And I was born a little bit, and they always treated us really good, but this was like the the single most bright spot in a weightlifting, like enlightenment, even though I lifted weights. But I never knew the psychology behind lifting weeds. It's just to look good and so you can flex and look in the mirror or is it for performance? And this guy was about performance. And you said repetition, do you mean technique? I'm talking repetition technique technique, drill drill drill hit. Hit, drive finish. Hit drive Vinny. So you believe in that. I believe in that wholeheartedly. So I mean, and I believe that you have to do it on your own. I don't believe in the coach taking you to the promised land. So in the guys today or in yourself, how often do you see people that grow the belief of doing 10,020 thousand reps? I think it's rare, I think it's very rare. And I think it's especially rare. I mean, you can talk about that as a coach but it's especially rare to bring a guy to that understanding, but you never stop trying. You're always trying to reach him. I mean, we didn't have a good performance out there tonight, but you know what, you don't stop communicating. And there's a lot of programs out there that put their head down when things aren't going their way. And then as things start going their way, then they rise with the tide. There was no difference in the demeanor that of our corner. And we talk about, that's a philosophy..

"Iowa debate, Joel was perfectly positioned to chronicle It's wild twist and turns and what he learned revealed who was really in charge of the Democrat Party. As we mentioned earlier immediately following the January 2020 Iowa debate, Van Jones appeared to channel the voice of the Democrat grassroots when he acknowledged that no one on the Iowa debate stage had what it took to defeat Donald Trump. Again, Joel Pollack, and that's when the Sanders boomlet started. Sanders always had an organization behind him. He always had a devoted following, but He was lingering. Languishing and second or third place for a long time, he began to really pick up momentum. At that moment. It was almost as if the Democratic Party electorate was saying if we can't beat Donald Trump, we at least want to go out fighting for what we truly believe in. And voters started choosing Sanders almost as a protest as the Iowa caucuses came to a close. It looked as if Bernie Sanders was going to come out the clear winner. Then the unbelievable happened. We've been told now, for about two hours. The numbers are about to roll in. This is something is seriously off about this vote count. And I know that there are people that want to throw around a lot of irresponsible terms about rigged around hacking. We don't know any of that. At this stage.

"Oh so there are some really famous features of the iowa state fair and you know in my mind i think of the giant slide that that was always kind of a highlight for me but then there are other things that people. It's like when you go to the fair. You do this. So what would you say are some of those famous features that that people just really love at the iowa state fair. Well you like to say around here that if you haven't seen butter cow there's no real proof that you have been to the iowa state fair and historically speaking she's very iconic is a Huge butter cow full size That is sculpted by we've had five of butter sculptors over our history and She is on display during the fair in then Actually the butter is reused for a few years after that. But that's sort of an iconic thing just historically speaking that came about as a clever idea by the dairy producers to increase the use of butter disturbed them. show different ways that it could be utilized in. You would want to use it in your kitchen. Which i don't know if you'd wanna make an actual butter cow on your kitchen. But it was clever nonetheless and so that's very iconic and then all of our buildings so we have buildings that date back to eighteen eighty six in when we have guests who come from other states or other countries the historical buildings that we have the structures the different architecture that we have is really impressive. Grandstand was built in nineteen o nine And we've done a couple of renovations to it and it still stands today so i think those are some of the things that you know. I think are impressive. A based on other state fairs. We have four hundred fifty acres here at the iowa. See there in a hundred and sixty of them. Roughly our campgrounds. So four about eleven days in august That area i have heard becomes about the seventh largest in iowa..

"The data the iowa state fair always in august and it is always eleven days. So can you tell me. Is there a reason at eleven days. Is there a reason for the dates. That are chosen. I'm sure there was a whole whole lot of i. Don't figuring in mathematics and working with with the numbers that went into choosing just the perfect time yet so when the fair started it actually was held in october october. Twenty fifth eighteen fifty four And if you've ever been in iowa in october It could be miserable. We could have snow could have is. It can be bitterly cold. It could also be a beautiful day And so the fair sort of hopped around for a bit in the octobber. September range Mostly because it was hooked to agriculture. So it was a time when maybe the crops were ready to compete or farmer wasn't in the field in come to the fair so that's sort of how the date was developed in. It slowly moved back to august In we've had a few days like a week and then we've gone up to eleven days in eleven days Spot and we know that from staff here. You know that first week gun really busy. We're kind of working the kinks out. And then we get through that next part of the week. And we've by j in we strategically place it. So people have enough time to enjoy everything but that they don't get bored with you know maybe having at last over time there are other figures like for example. Texas does a whole month And they take like a couple of days off here and there which we try different things over the years than this sorta seems to be the window. That's fast right before school. The kids as projects are ready if they're exhibiting are showing and it's sort of the end to the summer So to speak in you know we've had a hundred plus what degree weather here in august in. We've had snow during the no. That's how i will roles.

"Rose that so I think that that is super cool. That we can sort of go back to that history And the fair mission at that. Time was twenty five cents. They had a budget of three hundred and some dollars. So i just think the history of what we do today. is really really important. We love to do new things but we also keep those traditional things going And you know one here. The fare wasn't hug because of the world's fair it wasn't held because of two different wars world war And then also the spanish war. And then i wasn't held last year because of covid sort of those sort of things in our history as well But it's a place for innovation. It's a place where people bring the new products you know whether that be she amies for your car or feeders for your livestock. We still have that today and we had it in eighteen fifty four. When affair started that is so fun. And you know. I never really thought about the because every year. You have the largest bull and you have the largest pig and the largest pumpkin and i never really thought about the fact that those were traditions. That stretched clear through from the beginning of the fair. I just kind of figured it was. Oh well that's fun to see this huge massive bull But i never really connected the two that is so fascinating. I think You know the big. Pumpkin is a great example of competition because those things are are babied like children For the producers left bring him here but also that is sort of a genetic experiment that they can go back home to or the seed person can take back and say okay. This is what happened in that giant. Pumpkin this is how we can you know. Put that in Someone else's guard into maybe make it a little stronger and last longer so fascinating. Now the data the iowa state fair always in august and it is always eleven days..
