Scientists create mice with cells from 2 males for 1st time
"For the first time, scientists have created baby mice from two males, researchers in Japan took skin cells from the tales of male mice and transform them. Their process converted male mouse stem cells into female cells and produced functional egg cells. They fertilized those eggs and implanted the embryos into female mice, about 1% of the embryos grew into live mouse pups. Researchers say the pups appear to grow normally and were able to become parents themselves in the usual way. The work was published in the journal nature. This raises the distant possibility of using the same technique for people, but experts say based on the limited success for mice, no one knows if it would work for humans. I'm Ed Donahue

Conn. woman 1st non-Vermonter granted assisted suicide right
"A woman from Connecticut has become the first non resident granted the right to take advantage of Vermont's assisted suicide law. 75 year old Linda bluestein has terminal cancer. One thing that surprised me about getting this latest terminal diagnosis is just how hard it is to die the way you want to die. It seems like everybody has an opinion on what should be allowed and what shouldn't be allowed. Bluestein lives in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and has reached a settlement with the state of Vermont, she can end her life there as long as she complies with other aspects of the state's assisted suicide law. I care so deeply about how the last moment of my life is going to go. Because I've said goodbye to so many that I've loved, who didn't have a good depth. Bluestein wants to make her death better. Not only for me, but for the people who are going to remember that. For whom that's going to be their last memory of me. Blue Stein is currently undergoing chemotherapy. I'm Ed Donahue

Crypto's Center of Gravity Is Shifting Away From the U.S.
"All right guys, well today we have an interesting theme. And we're going to spread this out over a couple of pieces, and I think a good way to kick it off is to point to a tweet which really deserves the visual, but it's from Brian quintessence of former CFTC commissioner who's now at andreessen Horowitz, and he shared a chart put together by electric capital that is the percentage of all of the world's crypto developers who are in the U.S.. The proportion of the developers in the U.S. has steadily declined year over year. In 2017, it was around 42% in 2018. It was around 39% in 2019. It was around 36% in 2020, it was around 33% in 2021. It was around 31%, and in 2022, it was around 28%. Now, I don't think there's anything wrong with developers coming from all over the world, and the best way to read this chart or the most hopeful way to read this chart would be that other developers from other places got in the game. However, I think, as you'll see from our topic today, that there might be something else going on, and certainly that was the point that Brian was trying to make. The comment that he added to the chart was this. For Gary gensler, this is what success looks like. The point of course is the U.S. seems to be determined to push crypto offshore, and that is the theme of the conversation today. So we're going to start with a piece by Noel atchison who used to be the head of research at coindesk and genesis trading that's called the future of crypto markets will be driven by developments in the east. Crypto investors need to keep an eye on geopolitical shifts playing out on the regulatory landscape, specifically some upcoming changes in Asia. Noelle writes, as political experts focus on the diplomatic dance and building tensions between the United States and China, punctuated by some balloon shaped comic relief that might end up not being so funny after all, a more benign battle is brewing in the halls of financial regulators. While local for now, nothing stays local for long and global markets. The potential ramifications go well beyond crypto markets, potentially shaping economic influence that. In this changing landscape, is more geo strategically important than ever. Earlier this week, Hong Kong securities and futures commission or SFC published a proposed text of its upcoming crypto regulations, slated to go into effect on June 1st, and opened it up for public comment. Its scope includes the licensing for crypto asset service platforms, which were originally only going to be allowed to service accredited investors. The SFC is now seeking input on whether or not retail investors should also be allowed to participate, and what types of protection should be in place. Also open for discussion as the range of quote unquote approved assets, which in principle would only include a limited selection of the most liquid tokens.

Love Your Enemies and Pray for Those Who Persecute You
"A reading from the holy gospel, according to Matthew, chapter 5 versus 43 through 48. Jesus said to his disciples, you have learned how it was said, you must love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say this to you. Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. In this way, you'll be sons of your father in heaven. For he causes the sun to rise on bad men, as well as good, and his reign to fall on the honest and dishonest men alike. For if you love those who love you, what right have you to claim any credit? Even the tax collectors do as much, do they not? And if you save your greetings for your brothers, are you doing anything exceptional? Even the pagans do as much, do they not? You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly father is perfect.

The 1st Friday of Lent Lenten Meditation: The Power of the Cross
"The power of the cross Friday of the first week of lent. The cross of Christ teaches us reconciliation. Ask. Is there anyone I do not love? In what way can I allow the love of Christ to control me? Seek. Allow the image of the cross of Christ. The price Jesus paid to redeem all creation. To dominate your thoughts when you find yourself growing angry at someone. As the Holy Spirit, to empower you to be reconciled to those who have hurt you. Knock. Meditate on second Corinthians, chapter 5 versus 14 through 15. The love of Christ overwhelms us when we reflect that if one man has died for all, then all men should be dead. And the reason he died for all was that living men should live no longer for themselves. But for him, who died, and was raised to life for them. What controls you. What motivates you from the moment of your rising to the point when you take your rest at night. Dwelling on Paul's words. Ask the lord to fill you with his love so that it may be the controlling force in your life.

Williamson becomes Democratic primary's 1st Biden challenger
"The 2024 presidential race now has its first Democrat. Man, it's not President Biden. Self help author Marianne Williamson says she's running again and repeating the message she ran on four years ago, repairing America's trauma. There are a lot more people in this country who love than who hate, but those who hate, it was seriousness, and they are politicized. Williamson's the first major Democrat to challenge the president, who has not yet formally announced a reelection bid, but has long said he intends to run again. I mean, how many times does he have to say until you believe it? First Lady Jill Biden told the AP's darlene superville last week, the president's not finished yet. Is all that's left at this point is just to figure out a time and place for the announcement. Pretty much. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

High court takes 1st look at law that shields internet firms
"The Supreme Court takes up its first case about a federal law credited with helping create the modern Internet by shielding Google Twitter, Facebook and other companies from lawsuits over content posted on their sites by others. The justices are hearing arguments today about whether the family of an American college student killed in a terrorist attack in Paris can sue Google for helping extremists spread their message and attract new recruits. The case is the Supreme Court's first look at section two 30 of the communications decency act, which protects companies from being sued over information their users post online. Lower courts have broadly interpreted the law to protect the industry, which the companies and their allies say has fueled the growth of the Internet and encouraged the removal of harmful content, but critics argued the companies have not done enough and that the law should not block lawsuits over the recommendations generated by computer algorithms that point viewers to more material that interests them and keeps them online longer.

"may 1st" Discussed on WTOP
"End on May 1st but a lot of consumer rights advocates and the borrower associations have been pushing the administration to extend the pause And for the first time a key White House official last week did suggest that a further extension of the pause is under consideration So it's anyone's guess right now what's going to happen There is increasing talk as there has been for quite a while about debt forgiveness What are you hearing about that front and whether it would perhaps be announced even as a new pause was announced The administration has adopted what they're calling a targeted student loan forgiveness approach where they've been essentially trying to relax the rules around the existing federal loan forgiveness programs to allow more people to qualify And according to the education department around $16 billion in student loan forgiveness has already been approved under the expansions of these programs Now that being said of course a lot of folks are pushing for broader loan forgiveness through executive action And the administration has not made any commitments about doing something more widespread But the same White House official that suggested that there could be a further extension of the student loan pods hinted that at least they're considering whether there can be any additional student loan forgiveness And he went further and said that we might know before payments would resume either before May 1st or if there's an extension before that extended deadline Do you have any guess as to whether the Biden administration is ready to pull the trigger on something like this and forgive a lot of student loan debt My true honest answer is I don't know The reality is that I don't think people are going to see every dollar of student debt wiped out but I do think there's a real possibility that we could see some sort of broad based loan forgiveness What that looks like what the amount might be whether there's going to be eligibility criteria attached those types of details I really don't You had mentioned that people have had.

And of course, they can be ready if something gets. Yeah. Goes back to our previous conversation about the wildfires. All it takes is something like that. Well, the larger scale trump prescribed burning and all that you have to get you have to get a permit for that, too. Yeah, and we, you know, we assist with prescribed burning, and, uh, that's another service we provided and like doing that. But you know, there's a certain amount of that It's prescribed burning is very helpful right to them to the environment. Some cases it you know, it depends on the case. And that can help you prevent Fires are bigger magnitude later. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. That goes back to the That underbrush and already in California. Where that fuel that's just ready. They're ready to ignite with the least, little spark. Yeah, and you fire breaks. You got to have that. You know, those are all those are absolutely no. That stuff backwards. Yes, really. The You know, The general public may not understand that, but it's they're trying to do it and they know how to do it. Yeah, absolutely. Well, switching to something I know. You know, a good bit about was your the former state veterinarian. And that is the Potomac Horse Fever. What is that? Well, patella course favor is, you know it's a, uh, it's a disease in horses. It's it's a bacterial disease. But the bacteria is kind of rickets. He'll organism not really bacteria like and it's interesting you learn gets in the bloodstream. And horses can get that from Uh, being around freshwater creeks and streams, and there's in six around that, uh, fresh water that can carry the the bacteria that work it still organism and they can ingest it, and then it can get in their bloodstream and they can get extremely sick. They can have a high fever. They can have diarrhea in this kind of pretty high mortality right now because it's a serious deal, But there's ways things you can do to prevent it. How widespread is it? Well, it's it's not that wide spread the state better. Current state vet Dr Samantha Babies sent out a press release. So gosh in the July or so we've, we've had four or five cases in four or five different counties across the state. And so the main messages just let the Ikhwan community know that it's out there. It can be fatal. You can prevent it with vaccine and also with trying to control the environment and limiting exposure to those insects that might carry that around freshwater so and also would be a good idea to check with your vet your veterinarian, right? What about it? For other animals? You know your cows and pigs and poultry and so forth any other diseases that are generally speaking. That can be an issue. Oh, you bear my field. You never know. Where do you want me to start? That was a wide open question. You're hitting mine. You're hitting my background. Was there a decade of state? Binary in? Yeah, So that's that. That's part of what the department. Agriculture does The animal Health addition, which is headed by Dr Beatty. That's there. Job is to protect the animals of the state and including livestock, and so we have, especially on the livestock side. We have a number of of there's federal programs as brucellosis and tuberculosis. And even influenza. Uh, there's several major federal programs that we assist with, and we are constantly doing surveillance for Viruses. It may have zoonotic potential. So you tell me about this pandemic was a huge reminder to us all. Where do we think it came from? The the buck up animals, animals and, Yeah, some point. Yeah. Market wet market they call understand was yeah, but it's It's got a close connection with Um, you know, if you have, if you have healthy animals, you have healthy humans. They have healthy environments. What we call the one health Ah, concept. That's what we're dealing with now. But anyhow, we're we're constantly doing surveillance testing on Uh, Avian influenza. On, uh, brucellosis. Uh, some of the private practitioners are doing testing for tuberculosis all the time. So we're monitoring those kind of things toast, so make sure they don't get probably prevalence didn't get up. So there's situations you mentioned avian. I know there's the avian influenza. That's is that transmissible in humans, too, right? Is it Well, it depends upon the strength so we had we had a highly pathogenic You might not know the largest Animal. Did you disease outbreak in United States was 2015. Okay? Wow. I didn't know that. Yeah, it was avian influenza. And in 2017. We had An outbreak here in Tennessee. The only stayed in the country in 2017. It had highly pathogenic, even influence. And we had a couple locations with that, but we got we got it under control very quickly, and you didn't see much of it other than impacted our trade for about six months. Really, Really? Because the, uh You went, You wouldn't realize this, but a lot of, uh, the last trade either export, or even even meet potentially You have to have certain levels or no levels of certain kind of diseases or you can't. You can't export and that's what happened. We had detection and it cut us off for a while to while you don't think you know the average person doesn't really think about things like that, behind the scenes things that the department agriculture does so if you eat food Or if you live in a house that was built with wood, we may have something to do with you Might that's true if you like to eat paid attention in, uh, food manufacturing inspection, And, uh yeah..

Which cities were you in? I was actually I just stayed in Kabul. I was frankly too terrified to move. Frankly, I just wouldn't leave. It's just you cannot believe that bugs in the filth and the unsanitary conditions and I, just frankly too terrified to go away from the main hospitals. Truly asked. I mean, I have been to Asia and comparatively speaking, I have to tell you, Afghanistan is like it's like The fourth century. You know, I mean, dreadful. I can't believe how people can actually Libya. It's just dreadful and awful. And the man don't make it any easier. I mean, look at the woman who's walking around. And they just take after you.

Was it realistic to expect our legal permanent residents are green card holders to get to the airport once it went to hell? Well. If you were a military man, I would think not. I mean, after the first No, I think they're probably going to take them out as they see them. That's my opinion. I'm not, you know, I was attached to the military under contract and Vietnam. But I was not in the real tree. However, I would say that that the Afghani men don't don't play games. They have no sense of humor whatsoever. And they're very, very violent. And they and they sold everything by chopping off heads and chopping off arms. I mean, doctor. Thank you. I got the picture. You're not an optimist about our hostages there, and I hope you don't think I don't think the pretty picture but it's a true picture. No, I believe you. I believe you and I have heard from many, many people that the brutality of the the Taliban is going to be. Not breathtaking simply, not within the can of the western mind. We will not understand. Believe it. You can't believe it. The violence size hole. Um is beyond description. And I, you know, I say that 10 years because my services were needed, and physicians were women when necessary. You know, because the women would not be seen by men. You know the doctors, physicians who were there who were Afghan men wouldn't even see the women. You know? Well, this is this is the country we have left by one perfect by any means when we were there, but its medieval, not medieval. It's prehistoric. Thank you, Doctor for your time there as well. I want to go back and play. Secretary Blinken is explanation of what happened. Cut number four. And President Biden took office in January. He inherited agreement that his predecessor had reached with the Taliban to remove all remaining forces from Afghanistan by May 1st of this year. Part of that agreement. The previous administration press the Afghan government to release 5000 Taliban prisoners, including some top war commanders. Meanwhile, it reduced our own force presence to 2500 troops. In return. The Taliban agreed to stop attacking US and partner forces. And to refrain from threatening Afghanistan's major cities. But the Taliban continued. A relentless march on remote outposts on checkpoints on villages operate there Today, someone's got to ask him when was forward operating base Chapman attack. Because Americans were seriously injured in that attack. Did that. That attack in March of this year breached the agreement. The conditions of the Doha agreement, the answer is yes. At that moment, they're no longer bound by the May deadline. And there may be even prior moments. That is what they got to focus in on and established this. This whole line of argument is just nonsense. If you want to go back in here, Mike Pompeo talk about this with me on the show. Then go to my search engine over it. Hugh Hewitt.

The Congress as much as whoever was president of the United States at that point, and the events that followed Yes, this was scarcely what anyone was expecting The bush years to consist of this was a time when the Soviet Union had fallen. Vietnam was increasingly distant memory, the United States. Had, in some respects come to think of itself as enjoying a peace dividend. It had been some while since the Iran Hostage crisis, and we were focused to a much greater degree on our own notion, uh, complacent as it may have been of defining ourselves and not worrying that much about the rest of the world or so we thought, Of course, In many ways, the United States was very much present in the rest of the world and engendering Resentment in some places, and this came home to us in the last 20 years. Of course, we have experienced that in many tragic ways and continue to do so. Now. I would think at this particular moment, Joe Biden Chose to recede and not be the face of 9 11. He is already the face of so much of what's happened in Afghanistan in the recent weeks that he probably thought this was Perhaps the most political thing he could do would be to be as small in today's proceedings as possible well, and that that touches on the question that I think will be on a lot of minds. President Biden. Uh, will now be will he now be defined as the president to, uh Who reached a working agreement with the Taliban and who withdrew American troops But in ways about which questions are are still raised as to how would have interested the loyalty. The USO. Its Afghan allies. Well, of course, the agreement to withdraw there's the agreement with the Taliban, with no participation by the Afghan government was reached by the previous administration. February of 2020. By the previous secretary of state and President Trump. They promised we would be out by May 1st. And if the Taliban didn't kill any more of our personnel, we would follow through on that and be out of the country by May, 1st. But it is the president who is on watch. When a disaster happens who is remembered in connection with that disaster? And that is something President Biden well understands. Scott Tetro. Let me turn to you as someone who is covered a lot of these events politically. Um President Biden. President Biden. Certainly wants to associate himself with the feeling of national unity.

And if the Taliban didn't kill any more of our personnel, we would follow through on that and be out of the country by May, 1st. But it is the president who is on watch.

He's pretending he had to live by the May 1st deadline, which, of course he didn't live by.

He's Biden is the president of the United States. Yes, I agree. We should have gotten out of Afghanistan. But the way he did it was just backwards. How come hot from al? How would you have done it? First of all, I would have kept the soldiers there till I evacuated my peak. Well, look at you know the first. Okay. All right, let me respond. Okay, let me and I answered Go ahead. Let me respond to that. You know, one of the reasons that he he had a choice, he could have kept them longer and increase the likelihood true likelihood of The kinds of terrorist attacks that occurred where night with what 13 soldiers could killed 875 Afghanistan because of of a suicide bomber and think about Isis also Shot rockets into the airport.

And his judgment from what I read was, he says, I think it's a greater risk to our military people to stay there another two weeks or whatever to try and get out that last few Few, uh, American citizens again by putting our soldiers more at risk, anyway, So even even even the powers to be in the military said Don't do it that way. Don't do it that way, and he ignored it. But they didn't have a better alternative. Right or Al, they didn't. The problem is they didn't have a better alternative. How can you trust the Taliban? To run security to make sure your people get out. How can you? How can you do it? How can you do anything different? They they control the whole city. I'll tell you how you do it different because everybody's talking about how Trump said he was going to do it on May and May. 1st May 1st Nobody's I am heard you anybody else say or any liberal progressives say Donald Trump? Yes, He did negotiate with the Taliban and it was going to be met by conditions and he said, if you don't need any of these conditions He said. I will bomb you like you. Never. Yeah, before and you know that. In other words, he was going to escalate the war is what he was going to do if they didn't meet those conditions, and by the way they didn't live, live up to the conditions. And he and he didn't do it. He didn't bomb them. He will, but he would have escalated the war. He says his words were. Is this okay? I'm not going alone. 13 did Americans the way he did it. The last 18 months of the Trump administration. How many casualties that we have? Because, but also none. You're right. Absolutely. Okay, now, okay.

"I think it's important to look at some of the punishment that the Biden administration put forward with the sanctions for the solar winds. Heck and targeting Russian diplomats expelling Russian diplomats for some of their past behavior, including their interference in U. S elections. Going back to 2016. I believe that if the U. S government had evidence that Russia was behind these attacks or was using a weapon against US officials overseas That they would have included some sort of punishment in that, But from people U. S officials I've spoken to. They don't have that conclusion or the evidence. They have their suspicions. And there's certainly a lot of very strong circumstantial evidence. But they don't have the smoking gun if you will, in order to punish Russia for this Um, Jen, Since I have you. We just passed this May 1st deadline That was the original deadline to withdraw troops in Afghanistan that was worked out between the Trump Administration and the Taliban. Now that Tru Patrol has just started as of may 1st meant to be completed, at least by 9 11. If not sooner, the 20th anniversary of the attacks in United States. They're people that think withdrawal on this scale is a big mistake. It's gonna lead. The country's collapse in Afghanistan that the security forces won't be able to keep up secretaries of state Condi Rice and Hillary Clinton just came out. It was skeptical of this plan. What do your friends and source did, the Pentagon say? I think the most vocal critic of the president's decision is General David Petraeus. He was the former head of U. S forces in Afghanistan as well as the former CIA director, and he said that it is a huge mistake. He believes that U. S troops will have to go back in two years. He believes that the Afghan government will fall and that the Taliban will take over. He has been very critical and probably the lead voice criticizing publicly. The Pentagon generals and the serving generals right now they gave their opinion to the bite administration. Privately, we know that they advised that they wanted to keep 2500 U. S troops. They thought that that was a good investment and a small footprint to ensure that they could still keep their listening basis there and Intel collection on Taliban Isis Al Qaeda. And so there was disappointment that the president chose to withdraw completely. President Biden. Isn't the first to have wanted to withdraw completely. President Trump had set the May 1st deadline, but in the end they're going to salute smartly and they're now underway. Withdrawing U. S forces and the real question is whether the Taliban tried to attack US forces on the way out. I'm told to expect US forces to be gone far before the 9 11 deadline. It's more likely sometime this summer in the July time frame. But again that could get complicated if the Taliban decide to fight and make it difficult for US forces that the U. S military has positioned B 52 bombers as well as extra special operations troops to help make for a smooth withdrawal. But again, there are a lot of unknowns right now on the Taliban certainly have a vote in this Box. National security correspondent Jennifer Griffin. Jen. Thanks a lot. Thank you.

Um, you've got an opportunity beginning this coming Saturday, may 1st the City Council elections. Um, the city of Dallas, Texas, I think deserves better than a few of the City Council members that are currently sitting in those seats. I know. Um I had a horrible interview with Adam Basil Dua. He wouldn't answer a straight question with a straight answer. And he kept telling me. No, I'm not for de funding the police. I'm for reimagining the place. Well, I'm re imagining new City Council members that actually care about you in the city with me. We don't talk to him very often. We should probably talk more. Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson. Mary, how you doing? I'm doing great, Rick. Thanks for having me on and I'm happy to come on any time Just invite me. I'll be here. All right. Well, you got an open door policy. So any time you've got something to get out to the public, you just let us know. Um, all right. City Council election Saturday. May 1st I know you're supporting a few folks that hopefully will be out of my put this I'm not gonna be politically correct because that's not me. I don't think that some members of this current City Council are putting public safety first. May I ask you if you share that belief I do. I think you're exactly right and I'll just cut right to it. The stakes could not be higher this Saturday. If you live in the city of Dallas, you need to come out and vote on Saturday. You need to vote. For your safety. Eat to vote for your public safety. You have to take this into your own hands, because in many cases we have members of the Dallas City Council who are willing to play games with your safety. They were playing political games last year when we passed the last budget. Chasing national trends and trying to catch the national wave and make names for themselves And they voted in ways that may our city fundamentally less safe. They cut the police overtime budget by 25%. They tried to apply those The money that they cut to a bunch of pet projects, including solar panels. Funding for theater and somebody's district on electric Vehicle Fleet study. I called him out on it. I took to the streets and through the airwaves and shows like yours and thank God the people got, you know to the council and they change the amendment to actually get this still cut the money from the overtime budget, which was horrible, but at least put it towards something that was, you know, connected to public safety Tonto cover their backsides. The problem is Because they cut that overtime budget by 25% were now out of money for overtime. We we've already spent the money and it's march. You know it incriminated know that way through March, Um they spent all the money essentially that we had for overtime. So now going into the summer, you know, through March through April, we were kind of 90% of the budget expended. I expect when we get the number for May that will be out. So now we're gonna have to go find money for overtime and overtime is what we used to offset the fact that we don't have enough officers in this city. So it's just a big mess completely avoidable. It was totally political theater and How we got here, you know, And when I was interviewing Bassel Dua, um which you know, I have been very vocal about. I don't care from making mouse is running against this guy. Vote for Mickey. When? When I was interviewing him. He took Hey, took opposition with me saying we didn't have enough police officers who told you that? Well, the police department. Well, what's the magic number? I mean, Not on Lee Doo Doo. I think not just him, but a few others do. They put public safety last, but it appears that they've gone off in some Crazy direction in a different reality. I'm not exactly sure if they know what they're doing and being obviously facetious, But you would think you know, Dallas, Texas. We're not talking about Topeka, Kansas. Here. It's a major metropolitan area. You would think that the City Council members Uh to a man or a woman would know exactly what's going on with our law enforcement. Right? Well, you would. But here's the sad part. The sad part is, um they are intentionally. Some of these folks are intentionally misleading people now about what their vote was and what they did, and they're not, and they're being helped out frankly, by the mainstream media. The mainstream media is not reporting. Accurately at all. What really happened? They're engaging in some silly debate about is it? Should we call it the funding? Is it really defunding? I don't care what you call it. I know this We had more murders in Dallas this past year that we've had since 1998 You know, when I was not even old enough to rent a car on my own, That's how long ago that's been And we in the middle of that violent crime Spike decided that we were going to whack the police department's overtime budget. And on top of that, Built into the budget, basically at a reduction in force of about 110 officers, because we are losing more officers than we're able to hire, So we budget it, you know, for basically for the department to strength even more. So, at this point, we're down about 500 officers from where we were in 2016, and we're a much bigger city with mortgage going on. So to say they're putting public safety first and that the pokes at the budget is growing. The growth in the budget is contractual obligations that nobody had to make a decisions about when it came to funding the squad cars and the actual market rate pay increases and the things that attract more officers and the overtime budget that we need to offset the fact that we're short officers..

Mr Rodham are welcome to the Christian Saito show. Where is the modern beyond? Thank you so much for having me. I'm a big fan Tao. Pleasure's mine, sir. Let's talk about first off the overarching question. I ask everybody why you're running. I'm letting because this is a district that we all losing. You know, I got six kids, Chris. I'm worried about their future more about future all the kids out there. This particular district. You know, I got in this race because we don't have a voice. You know, folks ask me all the time. Why am I the best candidate? Why am I the best candidate? Well, I'll tell you, Chris 2012, Mitt Romney won this district by 17 fast forward to 2016 President Trump wanted by 12 and 2021 of my three. The fact is that we keep we keep hiring the same people. We're gonna lose this district to the Democrats. We need a big boys to come in. We waited fighter. Understood. Now it took me right around ago. You have six kids, and we've been talking this morning about how these unaccountable EDUC rats in government government Ed Are forcing critical race theory, the teaching of basically hate whitey and racism against whites using taxpayer funded money to do it. If you are elected as a member of Kong Congress, what will you do? To give parents more of an ability to fight these unaccountable school district's I think it's absolutely crazy about things that Sanders is doing a good job out there in Florida. I wish the addict will will take note of it and do it out here in Texas, you know, I'm not a fan of You know, our education department. You know if we could get rid of it and just let the states run, it would be a lot better. You know that every child had the opportunity to a great education, You know, Obvious Sam would be school twist guy on guy. These air issues right now we're having. You know, our kids are being indoctrinated. I'm very similar to you, Chris. Some of the things you say I'm very may I say it the same way. Hard hit and folks sometimes get a little upset. But you know, you gotta be able to say and be honest with everybody. You know, way have major issues out here. We need to get him gravitate. I mean, hey, look, you saw on that video. You know, everybody yelled at me like that. You can't say many women's bathrooms, boys and girls sports communism in the classrooms. Well, you know what? I'm gonna say it. I'm gonna say it louder. Okay? Yeah, I understand. And again, I I am not to hear Ah, compelling reason from any of these edge across as to why parents don't deserve the choice to where to send their Children to be to be educated. They have not given me a compelling reason why parents don't deserve that. Right, folks. We're talking with one of the congressional candidates in CT six Big Dan Rodham Er. He's a Republican. Former WWF wrestler and, um, a lot of grain. He's running. Tolo t replace Ron, right, Uh, Mr Bike. Beijing, Biden has sponsored three crises at the southern border. Primarily harming the great state of Texas. Now, you passed massive, unaccountable spending on a party line vote. He pledged to raise our taxes and confiscate our guns. Yet, the press says he's a centrist who was a uniter. Number one address Biden's claims that he's out here to unify and then tell me is the GOP doing all it can to oppose his anti American policies. E. Chris, you could see this morning, Joe Biden hired. You know Texas Sheriff. Sounds good, right? Well, Texas sheriff. Teach truck, You know, I mean, he just politicized the border. Biden politicize the border Once again, you know, I've been down to the board on the weekend. It's been down there. I talked to those You know the angel moms down there. I talked to a lot of folks and you know, it's a humanitarian crisis. We got kids sleeping under under bridges. You know, next two rattlesnakes and fire ants. All right on the problem is is, you know, biting invited people He's like, Hey, come on over. Come on over. You know this is this is a serious issue. Where's comma Jen? Psaki said the other day. Comma is not focused on actual border, not the actual border, should not worry about that. She's focused on root causes. All right, you know, and give him more aid to South America. You know what words the sense of urgency. You know for her, you know, for for all these illegal aliens, but you know our veterans, you know, they can't even get benefits because of records backlogs. You know, it's it's you know, our priorities are not Not in the right place right now. And you know we need are Republicans stand up, Stand tall and be vocal about it. One candidate in your race, is calling for the Republican Party to distance themselves from President Trump. In fact, the GOP did not invite Mr Trump. To their retreat in Florida this week. But the vast majority of Republican voters are sticking with President Trump. Where are you? Hey, I'm in America first guy, You know, folks tell me all the time. Big Dad, What do you do When you get up there, you'd be able to work across the aisle. You could be able to work with Democrats as in heck, Yeah, I'll be the first person to co sponsor a bill to Democratic values in America First agenda. It may not happen, but you know these things that we, you know, we need to worry about America First policies and President Trump's America First policies worked. They were working before you know, pandemic that they came into effect. And if we continued with them, you know our country being a better place instead of going backwards and and opening the borders and getting great, you know, getting rid of the remaining Mexico policy that needs to be codified in the law. Now, as you know, Mr Trump.

"Commitment basically means you can close faster because you're through underwriting. That's kind of like a little Notch below what you were just describing right but still better than you know, going financing fresh. Okay, so what are we on? Don't go. If you don't know number for the number of homes competing with your subject property, this is one of the first things I asked agents when they're struggling with price. What are you up against home? It compare in the eyes of the buyer because you get old obsessed with, you know, listing comps and pending comps. Then it also has to stand up against what it's competing against now. If you're putting your house on the market and you are virtually, the only thing in that neighborhood and there's nothing in the neighborhoods that compete against it, and there's no new construction to kick your butt. Well, you have more leeway to go higher than the same property that maybe in different time or a different neighborhood does have. Let's say even five homes competing against it and maybe there's new construction that doesn't have a waiting list right around the corner. That's different. You're going to have to be a little bit tighter to your cops when you home. More competition makes sense. Yeah, definitely because you've got to put your buyer hat on, what are they going to see up against you, okay? So the argument for that is if I'm a buyer and I'm looking, let's say 500 to 5:50, am not going to try and see if I can get everything I need to take all those boxes at five hundred. And if I can do that on a house it's like 5:19. I might not even see your house at 5:50 as the competitions as I'm listening to us off in present all these points. Obviously, there's there's things we would written down and we prepared and thought about what we're going to say and how we're going to say it. But as I'm going through all of this, I'm thinking from the average agent listening who doesn't know how to become a listing agent. I mean, you gotta be looking at that age. Greater job is a viable alternative at this point just cuz right, right? Cuz it's it's I totally and completely sympathize with you guys. The buyer's agent would be terrible if we didn't coach them on this. Yeah, we're just, we're giving you the reality of a lot of realities of this Market you. So opposed to feeling overwhelmed and stressed opposed to thinking, you know, hopelessly. Here's a suggestion for you. Just become a listing agent, just decide you're going to Thursday. Vision your goal. Now is, you know, let's say it's May 1st. Your goal is by the time, it's the end of June. You seriously want to consider becoming one of our Premier coaching clients and then you want to have a goal of maybe taking two or three listing between now, and the end of June, or whatever your data is, you can all do it. We have coaching clients that have. I mean, we read some of these stories to you guys, you can read them on our website. We have people that are brand new licensees am taking the listings right away because they're doing what we asked them to do, how we're asking to do it with. They're actually doing the real work of real estate. The market is there for you to become a listing agent, you just have to have the skill set to go after the listings home. That's all this is. You just have the skills Gap and yet you do have a confidence Gap, too, but that would be made up more than made up when you have a skills, when you have the skills to basically make it. So you're excited to go to a listing appointment. I want you to really think about this..

"Well, President Biden once all adult Americans to be eligible for Corona virus of vaccinations. By May 1st Let me be clear. That doesn't mean everyone's gonna have that shot immediately, but it means you'll be able to get in line beginning May one. Every adult eligible get their shot. And that was from his nationally broadcast address to the nation last night, ABC political analyst Steve Roberts says the president took on the role of Consoler in chief. It was a tone of gentle calmness. There were no pyrotechnics. There was no soaring rhetoric. There was But there was a sense of reassurance, a sense of shared sorrow and grief for the impact of the last year, a sense of what had been lost. ABC is Karen Travers. It joins us from Washington, D. C. Karen, the tone of that speech is getting a lot of attention this morning. Yeah, You know, the President's certainly was reflective looking back at this past year and just how tough it's been, and he was very candid in the reality of that talking about the shared sacrifice the collective suffering, he said, point blank. We all lost something, and that's so true. This has been hard on every American. Everybody's been impacted in some way. And I think, though, that the speech was beginning was reflective, very somber, the end kind of back to that reflective Tone but also optimistic, looking ahead. But in the middle, there was really a roadmap for how this country will get back to normal. It was like an operational update because there were key details and benchmarks that were new from the president. He says He is directing all 50 states to make all adults eligible for the covert vaccine. By May, 1st. Now he was very clear that this does not mean everybody's going to get their shot by May 1st, but it means that you can get in line you can get into the system you could register and hopefully have more clarity on the Timeline for when you will be able to get a shot, and this is a very big deal. And it's signals that the Biden administration is very confident that the supply of going to ramp up in a significant way over the next 4 to 6 weeks ahead of that may 1st benchmark. Remember, the president has said the end of May is when there will be enough supply for all U S adults. And that doesn't mean you're getting the shot by the end of May. But just that the U. S government will have on hand enough doses for all U. S adults. So that looking like the timeline of soon after that, Which is why the president said that other benchmark July 4th Americans may be free to celebrate together and small groups, he said, will be marking our independence as a nation but also our independence from the virus. The president is celebrating the signing the covert relief bill What's on the agenda today? President in a couple of hours here in Washington, the White House he'll be in the Rose Garden, the Democratic lawmakers the first victory, lack of what I think will be a couple for the massive $1.9 Trillion covert relief plan that he signed into law yesterday in the Oval Office. He was not expected to do that until today, and we got the word from the White House, right. He's signing it in an hour set off quite a scramble. The White House says. They got to build on Wednesday night after the House had approved it, and they don't want to waste any time. So yesterday he signs it today. He's gonna thank Democratic lawmakers for getting it across the finish line and then next week search the sales pitch. He's going to travel to the suburbs of silly you can head to Atlanta at the end of the week. This is all part of the campaign to tell Americans now what is in the bill, how it will benefit them. And how this is going to help their local communities going to be eight all hands on deck efforts and the president, the vice president, the first lady and cabinet officials and other senior officials out there across the country in the coming weeks and months. All right, Karen, thanks for the update, Baby. See news White House correspondent Karen Travers. It was interesting to note how Fox News handled the president's speech last night. They did Eric Live. However, in the lower right hand corner of the screen was a small box, showing a live picture of their talk show host Tucker Carlson and his reactions to what the president was saying. And most of his reactions were scowls. No more news time 6 51 time.
