San Francisco Voters Oust Three School Board Members
"Meanwhile, here, closer to California. There were recall election involving three school board members. Why were they facing a recall election? Well, Asian American voters were angered because the school board introduced a lottery system for high school called Lowell high school. Lowell high school probably the finest public high school in California always had an admissions based test. And as a result, the majority of the school board were Asian American kids. And that, of course, does not work under the dye narrative, diversity, inclusion, equity. So these three board members voted to have an emissions based upon racial representation. Also, while they were shutting down the school, the school board members spent a lot of time debating on how to rename schools and some of the historical figures that were threatened to be canceled, included but were not limited to Abraham Lincoln and the three other presidents on Mount Rushmore, a Spanish conquistador named Balboa, John Muir, the naturalist and Paul Revere the Revolutionary War figure, all of those faced having been canceled by the school board members and as a result, these three school board members.

"My rushmore. My my four four faces that go the mountain are rick flair undertaker whole cogan and jan. Seen okay okay okay okay. Let's we're gonna. We're gonna unpack this list out like i said there's no wrong. Answer even though jab believes there is a wrong. And i'm listening to i think it was. I think it's very eclectic list. So let's start. Let's start what i call them. One of the four pillars of wrestling. You got to four pillars. Actually i call them one or two four pillows arrested. I call it a whole cogan. Wasco going to list hogan in many ways you can say that. He was the guy that brought pro wrestling to the mainstream. And we give vincent man most of the credit. But i'm not one hundred percent sure. The wwf would have taken off the way it did. If not for hulkamania running wild not to mention. He was the greatest hero in all of wrestling. During one of the hottest times in pro wrestling then changed companies work for someone else and became the greatest villain in pro wrestling during one of the hottest times in pro wrestling. And i don't think anyone else has been able to do that. He helped wwf early and help them topple all the other companies then left and help. Wcw overtake the wwf itself. That man is pro wrestling and even though he hasn't really been wrestling for twenty years. I bet if you stood on a street corner and ask random people to name a pro wrestler. He would still be one of the top. Names mentioned literally cannot be denied and it cannot be understated. look no matter of the shenanigans. That happened a few years ago. I said i'm objective. Remain objective when it comes to him as far as being one of the four pillars of wrestling and like he was so he was over as that hero. That's why the that was the greatest he'll turn because that's because he was always your hero and so like i. I can't argue with that hogan's bill. He belongs on on on a mount rushmore guy. He made one of our lists was. It's kind of funny because like like magic johnson in the nba who hasn't played ball in twenty years. Every time he doesn't add he's hold onto that basketball. You haven't played so long. Why no i'm with you. I do not put them on mount rushmore because of those shenanigans and of me. I'm going to keep it a real joy. And i'm gonna say shenanigans because it's a family show but you know what the hell y'all know. What the hell i'm talking about. I don't want to get into that foolishness. But literally on principle. I cannot who mortgage not to discredit his catalog. Like no. don't do that that's objective. You can't do that right we're both. Dj's jack and there's some art as you can't play anymore just because shenanigans that's just the way the a yeah you you already know so even though that is i will say easing is worth over us. In pop culture the word is icon and the reason being. Is that thing about wrestling. you say. Give me an impression of a wrestler. It's usually hogan and that matters a lot of people. But i got into wrestling fairly late. I got into wrestling and nine hundred ninety three so as far as i'm concerned. He's the guy from thunder in paradise. Mr nanny guy. Almost suburban commando guy. You know what. I mean all of those. Tv shows and films just help help the argument. I think that he's one of the best. That's great. that's great film. Mr nanny is classic. You know like. I said so. Hogan is fair. Man you said you said nature boy. He's the nature boy who to me is one of my other pillars of collar elbow wash flair on your list. And my opinion. He's the go because he's done it in the territories he's done it in. Nwea's done it in the wcw. He's done it in wwf and wwe. He was he was big during the big man eighties era. He was big during the attitude. Era big during the ruthless aggression era and still getting talked about when he leaves the company and goes to another he still in carshield commercials. He's still getting talked about and songs. He's still getting quoted. What he's done going through all these different places and still doing big things and all these different places no one. I don't think anyone has ever done and now that everything's streaming. I don't think anyone will ever be able to do again. Rick fuller nature boy. Yeah data lone man that alone no matter what. If you've ever been to a live event that starts happening before the show even starts people are in line there will just be. It's like the wave but it's a wu wave where one person will do. And someone will answer you saw that that's icon. That's that's transcending everything you got you got you got young whippersnappers like the migos like doing songs ric flair drip the fact that they know who he is at the age that they are Speaks volumes maverick. Look to ease of movement man. He literally charge a thousand dollars an hour for promo class. If you wanted to. You know what i mean. And i liked the way i like the way he knew he was limited in the ring at certain things will even tell you but he knew how to tell a story in the ring what he was good at and he stuck to what he was. Good at. and damn you know. Any any any genetic trickle on down to the queen charlotte flare reflared worthy to be on anybody's mount rushmore flow. Beato dot com. What hasn't been said about ric flair. What i liked about him. And it's particularly is that you have this. Under a bubbling. Superman fears batman right. Everyone loves loves ric flair but the appreciation shifted over time he and ric flair still lives. The gimmick baby. I think one of the best you can do as a character and i don't really have carshield entertained. Sports entertainment commercial. la nights and commercial. Yes yeah and the thing that really makes it makes him special as randy. Orton is top ten all time for me personally but randy or basically has always been with the same company same boss and been successful there rick flair. He's been at different companies. He's been in different eras. We're just the whole game was different and he still always manages to find himself at the top no matter what those differences are. I'm sure randy orton would be great in every other places well but ric flair actually was. There's a difference there. I think get argue. Who's on who else is on there. I heard i didn't want i'm gonna. I'm gonna save the best. I know so. What was the other one. Because i know. I know who you're saving so regarding the undertaker You know forego mentioned live in the character undertakes the greatest character of all time fans of all ages respect and love and someone who made a character that is so outlandish. it would be impossible. I think for just about anyone else to make us take it seriously but he still made. It seems so real for so many people and he had such a good job of it he basically got spin off with kane that was so good itself. Cain went to the hall of fame. And i mean that with all respect to kane by the greatest storytelling Stories in history rustling. Oh absolutely and everyone loves the undertaker. I think everyone respects the undertaker. And i think there's very few people who can be around as long as him do as much as him and still claim that everybody respects him. Undertaker one of the people stayed there. When people were shifting people. Were jumping ship. He stayed there he stayed. He stayed in the company. He was a mainstay. There was people. That lou vincent vince. They talk they talk about the big man having like mrs and when it comes to certain board or being out of touch they they criticized the og for being out of touch but his hits man amazon. His hit the log vince. Mcmahon's hit catalog is it's like it's like twenty seven baby. Got back so you.

I'm just amazed that these faces are recognizable. very recognizable. everybody can tell exactly who these people are. And what do you take is the sculptors political point here. Well i think it's very it's an environmental point and i was just talking to him on the phone before you and i started talking his name's joel rush and this is how he put the messages. We have to find a way of dating with this electrical. Waste that we're producing because it we haven't got ways of Taken a pause again. We haven't got waste repairing it.

According to the UN at the 53 Million tons of electronic waste generated globally each year, will more than double by 2050, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the world. The artists are hoping their mount recycling more will galvanize the world leaders to tackle the problem. The

I'd roger moore is probably you're thinking of though no the he only had two movies right don. Who's the one who told him. Just had like licensed to kill. And i think one other maybe no it was. The short lived one but When the when pierce browse and started playing the character he was just so super elegant he was. He was real quick. Jay will get off of this topic but real quick. I saw a mrs doubtfire before he was ever james bond and he's in that movie and i'm like hey got james bond even though he wasn't james bond right just somehow he's automatically james bond.

And in you're in the air and you just you do all kinds of flips and stuff with tony hawk and then you come down and just break your legs with james bond movie like i mean nobody perfect But the that game was amazing to me. Like i remember and i got it for christmas. I think i've played that one. And i just remember my in sixty four friends at golden. I'm like it was the third this. Yeah so this game was third person. you play pierce brosnan and you know you essentially follow the movie story line and but to me it was just it was. It was cool as a as a kid. I'm playing. I'm playing james bond and i had the sixty four and i had Golden i is just. It was a different experience. I don't think i ever third person shooter before that game right. Yeah i could see that because this is more of that cinematic where games kinda go. Yeah so another game So so let's just say. We're doing a mount rushmore. We already have final fantasy. Seven and tony hawk to the this price of original playstation. Okay okay so. I submit to you metal gear solid. Oh definitely yeah. I mean and the reason i say because you kind of with with your bizarre choice of double o seven the fact that it's a third person game and it made me think of the more cinematic games today bella gear was the first cinematic game where you felt like you were watching a movie where it spanned two or three discs and i remember finishing it just being like wow is like watching a movie but it's a video game. I blew me away. Granted i'm not. I would not call myself a fan of the series but i'm a fan of the first game. It has an age that well. It's kind of tough to go back to in my opinion but at the time it was like whoa. Whoa i mean it. It really introduced stealth gameplay Yeah from what from if if my memory is correct. And it's probably i can't. I mean the metal gear solid has or metal gear. Series has been around a while and had stealth gameplay but it wasn't like it wasn't third. You know it was a top down two d. Yeah but so like to tomorrow never dies really wet. My appetite for third person shooter games and i remember so. Did you play syphon filter at all. Yeah i played syphon filter. Obviously tomb raider. I went back the tomb raider. Even though tomb raider was the o. g. third third person game on the playstation but I went back. And i got that game i got. Here's another game. That was third person. Shower remember what it is. But that i mean that's so tomorrow never dies really has a nostalgia You know place I it has a place in my video game heart because it. It took me to a jonah that you know i don't know what would have been my first foray into that into those type of games not played tomorrow never dies and i think i don't i got the the game was because i was like so in love with pierce brosnan as james bond and.

Then you know you were going to eat a stunner that that's shane cell. Because i'm not going to say his last name. But where he looked like a breaching amazing every rock sell every hundred and stone cold would like he would still be one of the greats but he would not be on. This wrestling mount rushmore. Not for the rock which it was a hard decision between those two but that was not going to put them on. I had to basic answers and neither of them i went with i i was debating about. Aj or sina one of those two being on here did the flatter thir- keep you from putting no it was just because it was the gay community. I love aj styles. I don't have a personal reason to put him on my mount rushmore. Unlike much like punk brought dylan back into the red into the wrestling the man who's next on my mount rushmore and the man who brought me back into wrestling is none other than the heart. Break shown michaels he almost. He almost made mind but wasn't there for his initial run. I was only there for his comeback and that was matchel. That's the funny thing is the fact that the moment that got me back into wrestling was when they said. Dax was going to reunite. And i just remembered dx from the nineties so in this case. I guess vince elapsed fan got back because of a Nostalgia plays so props on you there now. It was the worst iteration of dax but it did feature hunter going to. I guess the lunchroom at at their headquarters and sean was just working. Shep any ends up super kicking a child asking him for salad. You can't have old. Hpk on your mount rushmore. I mean the man was a fucking legend. He was without shawn michaels. We would not have the ricochets of today. we would not have the smaller. The even ray ministerial. You wouldn't have these smaller guys. Who i guess not ricochet but like who get up to these higher points.

"I'm gonna drown you know. Let's take pictures together. And then they just start posing and then chuck looks in the yeats archibald into a sea of nights. You know the ironic thing about the punk is like i mentioned wrestlemainia. Thirty was my first major wrestling pay per view. I would say as where. I became a fan of professional wrestling and it was just all after seeing bug like my main introduction to wrestling was after punk. Yeah so that's a shame. His last wrestlemainia matt fucking awesome. Yeah i've seen that match before. It's amazing. the build up to that match him dumping pallbearers ashes. All over himself and bathing in them. Fuck me up. I still remember like after punk doing that. Going back and watching the punk shit like coming out as jeff hardy and just making fun of him for being an alcoholic the whole straight edge society. The fact that the he who shall not be named decided. Let's give this guy a microphone during the royal rumble. And just have him go for the first ten insurance the sermon on the mound baby. Oh such good shit. Yeah there was no way. I wouldn't put punk on my mount rushmore. Yeah all right you can go again. Blake we skip me. 'cause i yeah you could okay. Let's go with a real basic one for me. And i think that this guy would be on a lot of people's wrestling route. Mount rushmore is because he a stint simply made wrestling along with a another man who. I'm sure we'll talk about it. Link at during this popular in the nineties during the attitude era and that is none other than stone cold.

"mount rushmore" Discussed on Fight Boyz: A Pro-Wrestling Podcast
"Because daniel bryan even more so than i think most people who followed him for me he holds a very special place in my own wrestling story because the first major wrestling pay per view that i watched was wrestlemainia. Thirty probably told the story a ton of times before. I probably mentioned it because it was the first wrestle. History acts that i did it because i got to see his crowning moment after the company tried to hold him down after the the main roster put the squeeze him he he came out on top and even beforehand. He was a masterful wrestler. He he killed it in a ring of honor in the independence. He was the guy that when you japan. Yeah fuck in new. Japan are america ryan curry great. He's hot he's spicy. He tastes great. Christopher daniels barely missed this list. That also does make me wanna ask blake which daniel bryan head is going to be on your mount rushmore. And please tell me. It is the very weird image. They have on him of wikipedia in a wizards cloak. Just like a bald head. And that long beard. Yeah i would love that and it has it has to be the planet's champion doesn't it. Oh yeah it's gotta be the daniel bryan with the longest beard. Because i'm gonna put him instead of the washington position. I'm gonna put him. Where lincoln is oh. Yeah oh be a that would be during. What is icy rain. i'm ably i think. So because the most scraggly yeah honestly yeah daniels such a good pick because it's rare for a guy to be super beloved on the indies and then also have everything the main roster wants because if you need daniel to do a comedy bit daniel can fucking fiszman boy. He double fist me. I think that's one of the reasons that i love him so much because he has had such an impact on the wrestling industry as a whole But also because key is one of those people that the bad man who runs the company loves like absolutely just fucking adores him to the point where. Brian could do just about anything that he wanted in that company. Outside of being the main champion until the audience forced his hand and made him the main champion for however short of a rain it was and then he came back he was then he got it again as the the new daniel bryan and he was a wonderful healed and then he went right back to do and fuck it comedy shit. And he's amazing there now. He's doing backstage creative stuff. He can fit literally anywhere in the wrestling industry. And he has. I'm trying to remember what the phrase was. But my favorite thing about daniel bryan is truly is the fans and whoever backstage made the decision that got him over because they gave him a personality test when he joined the main roster and i think the biggest point that came out of it for daniel was the fact that he had zero ambition. Absolutely no ambition because on this personality and both of you know that that really resonates with me special level a all right well.
Giant Statues of US Presidents' Heads Are Crumbling in Virginia
"If you're wondering who has both the patience and the skills to sculpt giant busts of every president. I'd like you to meet david aspects. Okay i was in world war two. Remember that one so all the papers. David's originally from texas but he served in the army air corps during world war two and that brought them to france he always been artistic kid who doodling in the margins of notebooks. But it'd be embarrassed in seeing it all as a young man said man. This is where. I want to be. So i finish service and then took my gi bill to do two years embarrassed. David addicts was primarily a painter. But over time he started to work in sculpture as well and in nineteen ninety-four four. He got his biggest commission to sculpt a sixty seven foot. Tall statue. Of sam houston. The city's namesake and former governor and president of texas in one of the things that david loved about sculpting sam houston was working on the head and specifically the is head is about twelve feet tall and i get looking in his eyes and i love the way it's gone looks right at you. It was a big job so in the middle of it. David decided to take a little break. Go on a road trip. Take a quick vacation to visit friends in canada and driving. Back home decided mount rushmore. Everybody knows what it is. But i've never seen it but man i was well by that in the sixty feet tall but disappointed that you couldn't get closer to them. Look in their eyes. The is to david. The is were what helped him make the sculpture more than just a piece of stone. And so as you looked up at the president's carved into mount rushmore. He got an idea. Wouldn't it be great to do the president. Not just the four of those but all of them were forty three hundred that and not that big sixty feet but the about twenty. So that's what they the idea of building a whole set of the president's heads

Reflections On Atlanta Braves Legend Henry "Hank" Aaron
"I could talk about the dignity in the class of hank. Aaron the man the you've been being for an hour easily but i'm a numbers guy and so let me tell you what i did. After hank aaron died i navigated over to his page on baseball reference. And i don't know. I just be held the majesty of this man's career and it literally gave me goosebumps. The more i looked the more. I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly thirty eight hundred hits. And that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more history chipper jones. It's two thousand more hits than mark. Maguire it's more hits than johnny bench and hank greenberg got combined and they're both in the hall of fame so i think about all those hints and i think about those seven hundred fifty five homeless because that's two hundred more homes than mickey mantle. Two hundred it's more homers than edgar martinez and duke snider hit combined. And they're both in the hall. But the more i dug i found other cool stuff to hank. Aaron had double digit home run seasons at age twenty and age. Forty here the only three players who did that. Willie mays ted williams hank aaron. That's a pretty good. Start on a mount rushmore. Would you say and all those home runs. He hit for all those years. This never struck out one hundred times. Then there's total basis crushes. Everyone who ever played in total bases six thousand eight hundred and fifty. Six total bases isn't just a record. It's seven hundred. Twenty two more than stan. Musial was the next closest player in history. If stan musial had hit another one hundred and eighty home runs. He still wouldn't catch i karen and total basis. That's a lot of total basis. That's incredible hitter hank. Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived and still the underrated. After looking over hank aaron's numbers. I think it is my name. Is david o'brien cover the braves for the athletic. And there's only two guys that i've ever felt this aura around them and that was mohammed ali and hank. Aaron and hank aaron. How's interviewed him. The first time at spring training. I remember approaching him and it was just You know i've done this for thirty years. And it was feeling. I've had unlike any other athlete that i've ever approached but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this. Superstar is genuine icon living in atlanta for twenty years You can't overstate the importance of hank. Air to this city and this region the south. I grew up in the south and hank aaron being a black man being the greatest one of one of the two or three greatest players of all time and to do what he did in the south and then living in atlanta and seeing hank aaron you know mementos anchor and tributes and see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that. There is no athlete. That is more important to a city than hanker and wants to atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean this is a city where you feel fide of being so much black acceptance here. Thanks a huge huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers wanna come here to be here. Brian jordan know it was an all star with atlanta. Bryant said that The reason that he chose atlanta was hank. Aaron and was a boy idle here. He said a black kid growing up playing baseball hank. Aaron was the guy but it was an opportunity for me to meet my hair. The hope the opportunity is given so many kids today. Amazing dominique wilkins. Said hank was a big reason. That he came here was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys into getting me here in atlanta. But one for god like hank. I wouldn't been here. Was hanker went to ted turner and said hey you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give the roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see him getting them now but he said hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago and he was right What are the things that i remember him saying is that you gotta set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that. You do the right way you doing about being Have miltie you do it by just doing the right thing and the right thing a lot of times. It's hard and a lot of guys. Young guys don't know how to do the right thing. As far as how they present themselves to people and how they get back to people so to give back experts that i've learned over the years has become from erin trampling. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in. Nineteen sixty six from the

Remembering Eddie Van Halen with Steve Gorman
"Joining me now is Steve. Gorman who was the drummer in the Black Crowes who now plays with trigger hippy and before we talk about some of the Black Crowes stuff in your book I. I saw tweets even it was talking about Eddie Van Halen, which is Kinda. Why you here you say there will be many many words written and spoken about Eddie. Van. Halen, over the next few days, weeks, months and years those millions of words will never come close to expressing what he meant a rock music what he meant to guitarist and what he meant to the guitar itself that's pretty powerful statement Mr Gorman what did Eddie and remind me to rock music I. Think it's it's pretty simple. You can say that he and Jimi Hendrix of the two guys. That truly, and and only the two guys that moved the needle for the guitar itself I mean Hendrix. came out of a blue based. seem. And took the playing and the tone he could get to a new place but even hail and. Really almost came in from another country. Another planet I should say another he's like an alien life form I mean, he was a virtuosic player obviously but he He reinvented what what you could do is to guitar and the fact of the matter is this. Like Hendrix. But even to a greater degree, anybody tries to play like Eddie. Van Halen. Just sounds like a mind a mimic they. It's like rich little doing Johnny Carson okay. Yeah. That kind of sounds like him but. There's nothing nobody's ever been able to do any van. Halen. Did it make it feel a certain way? That each just the and he was that way at twenty two I mean, this is this is not a guy like it's not like David Blaine magic tricks where he gets bigger and better every year he started with card tricks that other people did I even Halen hit the ground running with Van Halen one playing an instrument that have been around for centuries unlike anybody else had ever done I mean he was on the Mount. Rushmore. Of Great Depar- players. At twenty two years old and then, and then he stuck around for another forty years still playing unlike anybody before sin. So I just think that in terms of. You know. Sheer unique. Mindset ambition combined with just. Great talent obviously. But but also phenomenal work ethic I mean he's just a complete unicorn in every sense of the word. How would you describe his guitar sound and I say that I know what I think of it but I wasn't I just messed van Halen like I came around right as you guys were blowing up honestly so that for me the van Halen was slightly classic rock slightly old rock to me as A. Kid. So as someone 'cause, you're just years older than I am but how would you describe his guitar sound someone who was in in it and living it in love and Van Halen? Well I can tell you that that was thirteen years old the first time I heard Van Halen and I remember it. I remember where I was I remember who I was with. It was going home from school in Hopkinsville Kentucky. You really got me there kinks the you know the their cover, the kinks song came on the radio. And and it was playing already and I said, Hey, mom turn that up. It was me and my mom and my friend Brooke. Lofton. The three of us in a car and she turned it up and I my first thought was. That must be like a live version of the king song and I was thinking like we don't they don't rock or do they. But when it hit that Solo and then by the time, the song ended I realized well, that does that's not ray Davey seeing this is clearly a cover version but what on earth is this and it was like making my? Hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is a time when I thought punk rock was the coolest thing in the world. and. The truth is Van Halen was more punk than the punks because they were truly breaking down a bunch of barriers if you will or they were going in their own. You know there hasn't been a band like Van Halen since led Zeppelin in terms of. Rock band hits the ground running at full steam and it obliterates everything in their path in a certain sense and. Jimmy van Halen sound it sounded like California was in my head. You know soon as I realized soon as I heard about them, they're from La, and as soon as I saw David Lee Roth and then as soon as I heard more than you know the next thing I heard was eruption Guitar Solo and you know hearing just two pieces of their first album and seeing what they look like it just. It felt brand new and it already felt like they're going to be around forever. You just knew from the jump and this is me as a thirteen year old kid who is obsessed with music. This band is one of the Alzheimer's like there's nothing like this and they all have the chops and the other thing too as long as I'm just rambling incessantly any van Halen was a great rhythm player. It wasn't just about the Solos he led the band rhythmically and he's also it needs to be noted not that it's not obvious. He's a hell of a songwriter I mean he really was. As I said before he's a true Unicorn I mean, just just nothing like it. What does this sound like do you? It sounds frequent and right in right in the zone near your your key. That's one thing because listen I played a little bit I don't play even as good as my friends who are real life musicians, but it's perfect frequency and frequency is in the tone or the, but as because it's a lot. I mean Brad Paisley plays unnoticed Brad. Paisley. Because I hear the chicken Pickin I hear a very distinct sound and again I didn't catch van Halen as it was happening in my childhood. But when I hear Van Halen Song even if I, it's I, don't know who it is. Just hear the guitar part I hear the Eddie van Halen because I how fast he shreds but the pattern that he does it, you can just tell. By By his fingers and it just kind of again it's hard to explain when you ask about music but that's what I think about and I try to. Always try to. Prepare analogies and most of the people who listen to this podcast here between twenty to forty, and if you were to make an analogy to another band, it's GonNa be tough because Van Halen was massive. But who later on had the kind of? Impact or. Reflected the mass listening that Van Halen had well. What band what yeah. What band can we look at now or in the last ten years and see? Okay. Well, that's how big Van Halen was to the people that were the kids in the eighties.
'Patriotic Education': Trump Says He Will Start New Commission
"All things considered. I'm Elsa Chang and I'm Sasha Pfeiffer. President Trump waded into the classroom today. He says he thinks American students need to be taught what he calls patriotic education, and he accused his political opponents of trying to brainwash Children about racism. Must clear away the twisted Web of lies in our schools, classrooms and teach your Children the magnificent truth. About our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation. In the history of the world. It's the latest development in the cultural divisions. Trump is trying to promote as part of his reelection campaign. White House correspondent Tamara Keith joins me now to talk about this item. Hello. And the president says he's going to create a new commission about this. Can you working? Tell us about that commission? Yes. So he went to the National Archives to announce that he is creating a commission to promote history education that focuses on quote the legacy of 17 76. Of course, that is the year when American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain, and this is a reaction in part against the 16 19 project. President Trump made it explicit. He said that That was the project led by the New York Times that focuses on a view of American history stemming from the year when the first enslaved Africans were brought to these shores. But it's also a reaction to the protest that we've seen this year against racial injustice. One thing about the commission to be clear about, though the federal government does not have jurisdiction over school curriculum, so it is up to schools and local and state governments to decide what to teach. And they do and they teach very different things depending on where you are. This isn't the first time the president has talked about these themes. Would you put in context? Put this in context for us politically? Yes. Oh, he's wrapping a few things together here. People on the right have long complained about the liberal bent on college campuses. That is not new. But there has been a growing effort by educators at all levels, even in elementary schools to teach Children about systemic racism. Slavery as a founding sin of the nation. The genocide of Native Americans as part of westward expansion, and President Trump objects to that strongly, saying schools are teaching Children to hate America. Our Children are instructed from propaganda tracks. Like those of Howard's in Try to make students ashamed of their own history. The left has warped, distorted and to file The American story. With deceptions, fall suits and lives. This also comes in the midst of the racial justice protests where some protesters tour down or vandalize statues of Confederate generals and founding fathers who owned slaves, and Trump has come to the defense of these statues, making them a cause of sorts as part of his re election. There is often a reason or an impetus for why Trump will say things that he knows will be provocative. Is there Do we know what he's talking about this now? Well, he's been talking about it for a little while. It's it's clear. This is part of his re election. This is a variation on themes that he talked about it during speeches and at Mount Rushmore on July 3rd the White House on July 4th. It's a theme he has been coming back to to fire up his base, sort of a variation on make America great again, harkening back to a different time. A different America. He is presenting himself as a great defender of American values and and even Western civilisation, as if to say that people who don't agree with his view of history or of what makes America great. That they are just wrong, but fundamentally trying to destroy the country. It is a very different reelection message than those used by past presidents. It's not about uplift or unifying. It's a long way. From morning in America and as if it wasn't clear already that this is part of his reelection campaign. As part of his remarks, President Trump took a very unsettle shot at Joe Biden holding up a statue of a a notable Delaware founding father and saying that when his statue was taken down by the city of Wilmington, Biden didn't speak out. That's white House correspondent. Tamara Keith. Thank you to him. You're welcome. For
South Dakota emerges as new U.S. coronavirus hot spot
"Just before the fourth of July this summer the Republican governor of South Dakota Christie gnome one on Fox News to announce of excitedly that president trump's big July fourth campaign event at Mount. Rushmore would not require attendees to wear masks Hooray and definitely there would be no social distancing she said yeah and sure enough a big mostly mask lists crowd packed in for president trump's rally. Then South Dakota refused to have mask requirement or any kind of changing plans actually for the annual sturgis motorcycle rally last month, which attracted upwards of four hundred, thousand people. The sturgis motorcycle rally has now been linked to hundreds of new coronavirus cases, and at least one death cases in south. Dakota doubled in the two weeks after that event, there's actually a study out today that projects that the Sturgis rally alone may have led to an almost staunching number of new covid infections. South Dakota Governor Christie gnome has defended the sort of covid denial list approach of the state under her leadership saying that South Dakota will not listen to quote in elite class of so-called experts. Under her leadership, the state also ahead this past weekend with its state. Fair. No Corona virus walls for that gathering either. Now, as a few days ago, South Dakota has the highest number of corona virus cases per capita in the whole country. South Dakota's leaders refused to take measures to stop to stop the spread of it. They rejected the warnings of those pointy headed so-called experts. And now, here we are.

And they had to shot and he had shocked and you run around shoot and when I got kind of bored switch tune character, I get addicted over again and I would just rinse and repeat just get bored with one character get addicted with another play with my friends. The game requires you to be good at teamwork So I. It's one of my all time favorite games So let's you know in liberty else know that I never played this game. I'm not I'm not. I'm not a big multiplayer game game So you know it just never appealed to me like I know all about over watching I know how good of a game it appears to be in and everything I've read on it it's just it's IT multi player Games nowadays doom who really do much for me I'll play them you know and you know for the most part on joy him but I'm a big I'll be you know Solo Guy, you know I love spiral shock. Yeah. No, I love a good a good story. Behind the game but you know I know I know like like you with bioshock I, know of Overwatch Lor in you know with You know how good of a game I think I think Aegean like so many people gave it like Tin Tin Outon reviews and just when it came out when it came back with like five six years ago. No Four. I think I think we're on the fourth anniversary. Okay four or five, four I WANNA say for Yeah I. So you know it's not an old game by any means So I think you know it's hard. It's hard for me to get behinds again that's so young On a on a on a typical Mount Rushmore the simply because one I've never played it and to I I just I don't I don't know Does it stand the test of time you know is right because time hasn't told us yet. Right? It does. I don't know. So, here, I'm going to make some arguments for you. I'm going to spoiler concede this point again, allow bioshock to be on the budget arcade mount. Rushmore. because. Even as I explained the game, I'm thinking of some of the things that frustrate me about it. It is an online, only game and..
"mount rushmore" Discussed on Budget Arcade: Free to play gaming
"Name is Jeff and I am mark. And two weeks we play a free to play game and review it on these off weeks. We do something else we don't know what but last week we did the top five gaming consoles too much controversy and we're going to attempt more controversy or as they say in other countries controversy this week as we present to you the Mount Rushmore of first person shooters. this. Now this are mount. Rushmore. Is Go ahead mark just going to ask if our Mount Rushmore included the Donald Trump of first person shooters. Let's get political. You Know I. CAN'T I love it. I love being political it's not polarizing at all no, not very mundane. Yes. Most anyone is willing to listen to someone's opinion that is different than theirs way it and then respectfully disagree everyone is able to do that. So I I love doing that on facebook. Oh Yeah. It's the best place. Social media is the best place. The second best places on a podcast where everyone can hear you So what we're going to do is mark and I each have wrought four first person shooters to the table, and we can only have a total four on the budget arcade. Mount Rushmore first person shooters. So if we both bring the same one, obviously it's automatically on the Mount Rushmore where it's going to be complicated is when we have to when we have differences and we need to debate it out and come up with the definitive four first person shooters that belong on Mount Rushmore of budget arcades first person shooter. How does that make sense? It sounds good to me. Okay Mark Well, I'm going to start off with one that I'm pretty sure we both are going to immediately agree on. something. We talked about last time you and I did a solo show or did a the off week shows and that is going to be a halo combat evolved. Yeah I'm I'm right there with you Yeah. That's on your list as well. Yep I kind of had. Can Master chief be two of the? Four faces of this Mount Rushmore So my thing is because. It. Is a Mount Rushmore. Let's think about it as a Mount Rushmore right and so you're going to see the face. So when you see master chief on Mount Rushmore, it's going to probably just represent halo as a series. But my my specific pick is a halo combat evolved but if you say halo two or halo reach or whichever your favorite is. I'm fine with that because it's just going to be master chiefs head on the on the mountain. Yes. you know I love both combat evolved and Halo Two and I have on my list I have haloes slash halo to just because I think halo to improved. So much on the the little things that halo the I do so well, and just improved on mentally. But Halo combat evolved as what started in what evolved first person shooters especially. When you talk about. Microsoft and xbox gaming and you know.
DNC Announces Convention Speakers, Speculation On Biden's VP Pick Intensifies
"Of scheduled speakers at next week's Democratic National Convention is out, and it's being parsed for clues as to who's still in the running to be Joe Biden's running mate. He's expected to make that announcement any day now. Meanwhile, President Trump is floating the idea of accepting the Republican nomination later this month on Sacred ground. The Gettysburg Battlefield. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is watching it all. And Mara. You know, some names in the running to be Biden's running mate are scheduled to speak, but not in the VP slot, you know, and I'm just wondering if that's a fool's errand to try to make that meaningful, You know? What do you think about that? And who do you think at this point is thumb Where are may be the most likely candidates. I think the most likely candidates are still that same handful of women, you know, Joe Biden said. He's going to take a woman whether it's Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Gretchen Whitmer, Karen Bass. Those are the people who have been on the list for quite some time. And and, of course, Gretchen Whitmer is the only white female on that short list. But I think the list has remained the same. Sounds like he's about to make his decision because the vetting committee has pretty much disbanded on DH. It could be as early as today that we find out So what do you think for everybody who's sitting home, you know, got all the names and the lists on whiteboards and, you know, trying to, you know, look at those tea leaves. And should we be looking at the List of speakers. Oh, I think that that that is actually fool's errand, but it's fun and it's going to be over very soon. It could be over today, so go ahead. But I still think you know that of all my conversations with Democrats all signs Seemed to point to Kamala Harris. But with the caveat that Joe Biden hasn't decided, and he often takes his time deciding well, 100 prominent black men signed a letter. Hoping they could make him decide that it would be a black woman because they said to him, you will lose the election. If you don't choose a black woman as a running mate, and this was entertainers, pastors, business leaders, athletes. I'm wondering more. If you think that Biden really needed that public pressure, it would seem in this moment in time. That's the choice. He'd want. Make one of these in class. That's what I think. I think that letter was really aimed. And Gretchen Whitmer. She's the only white person on that list. Everyone else is a person of color or black woman. So I don't think he needed that kind of public pressure. But it does show you that of all the people on the list. There is a backlash brewing to at least one of them in that's Gretchen Whitmer. You haven't seen the same kind of opposition public opposition to Kamala Harris, for instance. Oh, by the way, you're saying Elizabeth Warren is not in the running and I don't think so. Yeah, No, I don't think so, although she's a thought leader in the party, and she certainly has influenced a tremendous amount of his agenda. Of the Democratic National Convention will be all online this year. Wouldn't does that mean for the post convention bounce that the candidates look for Hillary Clinton got well, first of all, who knows Because nobody's ever run a presidential campaign in a pandemic. But most people I talked to assume that the post convention bounce will be very small thiss year for both candidates because they're not having the kind of big Excitement filled crowded conventions like we have in the past that being said the Democrats have had a lot longer time to plan for a virtual convention than the Republicans because they've been scaling. There's back for months. And the big question is, are they about to produce the best four night television show ever seen in history? Or will it kind of be ho hum? Well, and they will be competing in that arena with a president who is obviously trying to make the best television show. What do you make of that tweet that he may accept the Republican Nomination for president from the Gettysburg Battlefield or the White House. Both locations likely to violate ethics rules or just some people's moral sense of what's right to politicize. But you know, this is a president that gave an interview to Fox News inside the Lincoln Memorial, gave an interview at Normandy. What do you think happens here? Will certainly Trump isn't worried about offending people sense of what's right or wrong or any kind of norm. Now there are legal questions. Ethical questions about what kind of federal property you can make a convention nominating speech, your acceptance speech on and I'm sure the White House lawyers will be figuring that out. Is there some part of Gettysburg that he could be on? Without violating ethics rules. It's certainly a lot easier for the president to set this up at the White House, but he's clearly looking for the kind of dramatic backdrop not unlike Mount Rushmore that would give his campaign a boost. Quick thought from you, Mara on the fact that it's been primary season. It's primary day today for six states. The focuses on Minnesota, where the Denver Democrat, the representative Ilhan Omar, Is facing a tough challenge. Other progressive candidates have done very well this primary season. What will you be looking for here, right. She's the only member of the squad left with the primary. The four young progressive women of color and she has a really stiff challenge from an attorney named Anton Melton, Mo. He's getting a lot of money. There's been a certain amount of unhappiness with her. They've been attacks on her first for allegedly making anti Semitic statements. We know that the other members of the squad have not had primary challenges. Rashida to leave beat hers back very handily. So that's what we're watching today for the Democrats. Well, how does he do? Right and very briefly. The unemployed have now gone over a week. Without that additional money from the federal government. The president signed those actions and directives to address this. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the money will go out in two weeks. But he doesn't have The power of the purse. Congress does and they're gone. They're out of session. I think everyone's taking a big political risk here for the president to sign these executive orders and then have people not get a bigger unemployment check or still face eviction. I think that that he will be responsible for that and then members of Congress, including the Democrats, they are allowing people to go without thes unemployment checks, which, by the way, have kept the economy going in large part On Then they have stopped negotiating. Good. Not good. Not good. Yeah. NPR national political correspond. Mara Liasson. Thank you. Thank you.
