I mean this I mean now you got frigging Louie gohmert talking about we need to take it to the streets with violence, you know, I can guarantee you he won't take his ass to the street causing problems, but he wants other people to do that and that right.

They're pissed off and and let me tell you something if anything happens and we allow them to turn things over then we have just given our country away. We will have given our country away to the friggin daggone absolute dictators. And that's exactly what people want and Ted Cruz. What a worm you boot-licking piece of shit.

You didn't do that expecting this kind of tyranny for those chickens schitt's in Washington DC. The don't have the guts to walk about shoes to just give our democracy away. And that's what they're doing. I mean, this is absolutely unacceptable and you know, and you've got what Linwood birth Calling for the execution of the Vice President of the United States. This is treason it's treason and once again, I don't give two ships if these Republicans don't want to you know, except the the Electoral College it is what it is. It was a friggin stomping is what it was 30657. You know, Donald Trump got beat and right now, you know, I don't know if it's they've all got shit on each other Donald Trump is doing what he can do because we know he knows that the moment that he is no longer covered with with the blanket of protection for being a standing president. His ass is going to be arrested and he's going to face Justice. That's exactly what's going to happen to him. And you know, these other people like Joe Louis gohmert and Ted Cruz absolute bootlickers. They've got nothing they've got nothing if they had anything we would already saw in court wage. Is would have already started the flip, but they have nothing they're just pissed off because they're horse lost in the race and they can't accept it. We are seeing the biggest bunch of sore losers in the history of the United States of America go and I hope that the people in their states should be absolutely raising hell against their actions right now.

It's it's absolute sickening. You know, we've got people that are right now people are being evicted, you know, and and and and these jackasses in Washington DC don't know how to get along with each other and and we continue to elect people to positions of authority that absolutely I I don't give a shitt I come from West Virginia. She could have wrapped a piece of dogshit in the Trump napkin and these people would have voted for it. And that's where we're at right now in this country today and it's absolutely sickening, but I'm going to tell you we are struggling but here's the thing LED. Georgia, you know Kelly La Fleur, her net worth is five hundred million dollars her and her husband owned the friggin New York Stock Exchange. How the hell do they relate to anybody in Georgia any but I don't give a shitt if you're if you're if you're moderately wealthy and Georgia, you cannot relate to her. She doesn't know anything about your life. You know, we've got these people that were born with silver spoons in their asses and they've been upgraded to two diamond plated and and they're the ones that are winning. They're the they're the elected officials. I mean, we don't have nobody in Washington in a heap. Losi is no different. You know, she's got so much damn money.

"A Plan Adelaide. I really believe the Akkad fix the problem with teachers across this country. And I will tell you that it's actually a pretty a simple plan and in that is is imagine if we drew a line and we say this is the salary land for a brand new teacher sure and that salary land was the same anywhere else in the United States of America. The only difference between a teacher in West Virginia and a teacher California is obviously. There's a cost of living allowance. The you know you have to deal with because it's a lot more expensive in California than it is in West Virginia. But if you had a wine and the basic starting salary for a teacher with a bachelor's degree little high for master's degree would be this level and it's not the poverty land been. Maybe maybe we would keep our teachers in locations like West. Virginia that has a hard time maintaining -taining teachers in science technology English math Spanish. Things like that. Maybe they would be willing to stay here and live in the place where they grew grew up if we were able to actually pay them a decent salary you know we always you talked to lawyers and doctors and you say why do you make so much money. The the first thing they say is what I'm merit so much. Educate you know American salary because of my education but yet most teachers have a master's degree plus forty five and it's okay for them believing poverty. We can solve that problem and stop having teachers in areas where it's really hard to maintain teachers teachers. We can actually keep those teachers in those areas. You know right now. We got places around here where the Spanish teacher is. The assistant wrestling coach and God bless the assistant wrestling coach for stepping up to the plate. But the reason why he has to do that is because our actual Spanish instructor instructor so a little grass greener on the other side of the border and ran off the Ohio or Kentucky or Virginia. West Virginia's struggling greatly lightly and we need to make sure that we keep our teachers and of course West Virginia is always under attack in the education world. They're doing analogy the last legislative session and I guarantee they're going to try it again this one since the teachers strike. Do you think that more people in West Virginia have sort of woken up to the problem and understand the need to pay teachers better. I think that people do understand that. But you know so people have got to start really looking at these leadership and what I mean by that is at the end of the teachers strike. Our would have been my life. We were going to have a blue wave in West Virginia. That was gonNA take back the Senate the House we were GonNA absolutely go blue. Get in West Virginia. We didn't we didn't go blew it. All we went more red. You know we can pick up a couple of seats in the house. I mean in the Senate the House note because because we had a governor who absolutely at personally think is a horrible human being but our governor had a little event can't where he pulled all of the Republicans and handing all standing behind him and of course during the teacher strike everyone of those Republicans spoke negatively about the teachers teachers. They they told lies and send the teach- some of them say they were assaulted by teachers. They said that the the teachers destroying the restrooms in the in the capital. All kinds on stuff. They tried to do to paint the teachers in a negative light. So here we are getting ready to go into the mid terms and all the sudden. The governor has this event re the all all these Republicans standing behind him and all those Republicans all got anywhere from AC- to an AF. Most of them got F- ratings during tasers by the teachers rated everybody. I was the only one to get an a plus on the Senate side but yet all the other Republicans got APPs. Now they're standing in behind Jim Justice at Jim Justice. Says if you guys keep these people in office and you vote for him again i WanNa get you another pay raise and unfortunately really. Nobody thought we'd got a governor. That's about as underhanded as you can get if you WANNA know he's lying just look and see if he's lips. Removing because of his lips are moving that line but they fell for it and they reelected all these Republicans and then the the the legislative session started Jordan. And everybody's talking about going to be another pay raise for teachers. But they didn't tell the teachers that they were also GonNa Throw Charter schools into into that pay rates beal. So if you want to pay raise you also vote for charter. Schools Charter. Schools take away from public school and make no mistake about our public. Schools are already struggling as it is but now all of a sudden you're gonNA see charter schools public. Oh by the way one of the things that we're not stipulated in the charter school. Beal was that these legislators should not be a win win the medical marijuana B- oh come out part of that saying that anybody that was participating in voting was not allowed to benefit from medical cannabis. We couldn't go out and get licenses to do the growing throwing all this up which I'm fine with but they didn't do that for charter schools right now. You've got charter schools going in and who's owning. WHO's purchasing these schools some of these legislators? They're the ones that are going to.

"This SYS- Kelly with two brads talking politics. Part of the dumb cast family of podcasts. And I am today with Richard Ojeda. Hello Richard Doing Great Tower you. I'm doing great so I think a lot of people probably at least somewhat know who you are but maybe just to sort of set the stage for a little bit. Tell me a little a bit about Your your background your time in the State Senate in West Virginia well. I grew up in Logan County West. Virginia and I entered the military after graduation. I spent twenty four years in the military and I served with some of the most amazing leaders that I think Anyone could serve with and when I retired from the military I was absolutely devastated at what I saw when I returned home to the place that I grew up in and realize that that the leaders that I had served within the military were not like the leaders that I found when I got home and what I mean by that is i. I found a bunch of people that had their hand in the cookie jar. Making plenty of money while everybody else was struggling. There was a lot of things that you could tell. Were not being addressed. I though were serious issues so I decided to start challenging these folks and and that's what I did. I ran for state Senate at an and two days prior to winning my seat. I was lured away from a political gathering of from a person that wanted some bumperstickers and I ended up getting hit in the back of the head with a pipe and roll over when I was unconscious and they broke eight bones in my face with brass knuckles. They pretty much knew that that. If I didn't die on that Creek Bank would be the next state senator and two days later At one mass Senate race from the Emergency Room of Charleston Area Medical Medical Center as a state senator in my first legislative session. I was told to not even think of pushing the medical cannabis cannabis bill but I went ahead and told them that I could care less what they thought that. I thought this was something that the people of my state desperately needed and I got the people behind me and in my first legislative session I was able to make West Virginia. The twenty state to become legal for medical cannabis the very next legislative legislative session. It was my speech that lit the match on the teacher. Strike that spread across the country. So I'm very proud of the of the things games that I was able to do. While in a while as a state senator. I think that I was able to fight to get corrections not one but two pay raises. This and I brought a lot of things to light and I fought a lot of a pretty tough fights but these were things that needed to be a fought even though some of them are lost sometimes. Sometimes you have to steal get in the fight. Even if you know that you're a you're you know you're probably not one to come out victorious but you gotta you gotTa let people know that it's a fight that needs to be fought and so speaking of that you ran for Congress in twenty eighteen gene and although you didn't win the election you managed to swing that district quite alike. You talk a little bit about that. Well you know when we decided to run for Congress. RECE- We pretty much knew that it was going to be up. You'll battle it was like an are plus fifty four pretty much impossible for someone to run as a Democrat Democrat but like I said I think that you know it doesn't matter I'm used to being the underdog I've always been the underdog so we fought that battle and we were able to turn more red votes blue than any congressional race in the country. We were number one out of four hundred thirty. Five races is in turning red boats blue but we still lost because you know this was an area and the truth is is actually winning. I was up by seven points and then of course donald trump come down here and fired everybody back up again you know and I ended up losing the race but once again you know we we did everything right. You know my opponent. They kept her away from the microphone. There was a lot of things that were done. My medical records were stolen from the. Va a by people that worked at the Va.. So you know. We're in the middle of of that situation right now as well where the main person that stole. Medical records is actually goal. It is actually going to be sentenced in January. But you know we fought. We fought the good fight Sadly the next day after my congressional race Saluto Washington DC. And I was on a show called the he'll rising and a woman approached me and she said you don't know me but I work for the Republicans Looki- and she told me that it was her responsibility to keep my opponents out of the view and the eyes of anybody that had a microphone because they knew if if she actually spoke than people would not vote for so they kept her silenced and the only thing she ever did it was basically say I'll do whatever donald trump once and unfortunately in southern West Virginia. That's all it took to basically have people. Oh jump and caster votes towards her. So what do you think was sort of the the reason that you were successful in getting so many voters I flip like. What's the you know? I think when people think of West Virginia they think of this red state I grew up in Ohio and I think of West Virginia as a union unstaged should be a democratic state. So what what's going on there. Why why this sort of disconnect between what may be we think it should be in? How are you able to flip voters well first off? The Democrats had control of West Virginia for eighty some years. And I tell people all the time you know how come. The Democrats lost power because they sucked you know. Just because person says he's a Democrat doesn't mean he's truly Democrat when I ran for Congress and when I ran for Senate Iran because I'm a real Democrat it and when I say Real Democrat with that means is I want to take care of our elderly. I want to take care of our veterans veterans. If I want to send you someplace break you than it's my responsibility to fix you when you come home. I stand with unions. I believe that the working class citizens citizens deserve to have a seat at the table. Because of you don't have a secret to table then. The chances are you are on the menu. And that's a fact. We need to support unions with everything and I the top person they will fight right to work legislation to the day. I die and I also believe that a Democrat helps people who live in poverty to you. Elevate themselves out of poverty with a hand up not necessarily a handout. And that's what a real Democrat is the next what I preach when I go from point to point B. and and people see that and they know that I'm speaking the truth and that's why people are more in tune to listen to what I have to say because they know that it's from the heart Richard Trudeau Jetta never wants pushed one single beal as a state senator. The put a single penny in my pocket. It's not about that. That was not what my the plan was. When I become a state senator and unfortunately we have a lot of people in the state the run for office because they look at it as nothing more than an the annual paycheck? And that's not what we need in West. Virginia we are struggling state that needs real leadership to step up and put West Virginia on a decent path. And Right now we've had nothing but people who have been all too willing to roll over and sale our state to the highest bidder. And that's got to stop so I saw that you had talked about a proposal. That lobbyists should have body cameras on.

"We'll have a lot less a back door diggings going on this twenty four seven bodycam it as long as that mob is is standing on the property of the capitol. The body camera must be on her at all times. Just like a shopping cart in the long. I want to do away with the whiskey wine and spirits gatherings. If they have were they winding down, we know that Alec wines and Dan's legislators and gives them legislation to take back. Mobbing? It's a lobbying group that Watson don's legislators. And then basically says here's A B all to take it back. And I want you to push. It's not a Bill that benefits our citizens ever. It's a Bill of benefits big corporations is exactly what it is. And they do their stuff behind closed doors, and you have another idea for for terms of public service when people on their summit service when they're done in the house when they serve their time in the house when I served their time in the Senate, and then they leave office would restrictions would you put on? Well, nothing says is I want to say that if you do your stint as a congressman, and this is only for people that run for congress and the Senate to include up president, I think that they need to take the same healthcare as everybody else because if they did we'd fix health care in this country. I think their kids go to public schools because if they did we'd fix education in this country. But also say that when you're done you have a retirement of a hundred and thirty thousand dollars a year. With a cap where you can make upwards to fifty thousand. And what that does is that will stop those guys from basically jumping over and becoming lobbyists because if you go become a lobbyist, the lobbyists can only pay you another hundred twenty to take you to your two hundred fifty thousand dollar cap, and you can have a total net worth. We're gonna million dollars. Anything above that, donate to charity? Staff sergeant in the United States military right now in Afghanistan, Syria or Iraq that have two children qualify for food stamps. That's service. I'm tired of these people saying that they're going to serve the people. But in reality, they go up there and their self serving after two tours at terms there were thirty million dollars as got stop. So it in your congressional race. You you one forty four percent of haute in the district were Hillary Clinton won twenty three percent. And we're Trump won what forty nine percent, right? What explains at this point two years in Trump's base is still supportive, west Virginia's two largest supportive of why is that what still is his enduring appeal because those people want so bad to believe is rhetoric when he says, you know, about jobs, but what people don't realize when Donald Trump talks about jobs. They're not jobs, you can raise a family shut down a factory and three thousand people lose those factory jobs. You can't replace him with with Dollar General and win these jobs. You know, that's the problem is that that's what that's what they're given in return. But a lot of these people are just wanting so bad for him to save in their different about him now because every politician says I'm gonna bring jobs about what's what's it about him that resonates in West Virginia? He was the guy that come on board that, you know, everybody respected the fact that you know, he. He said what he wanted to say. You know? Of course, we know a lot of it was garbage. We now know that a lot of the promises that he may were absolute garbage. But you know, there's some people out there that still hold on to the hope that he's gonna follow through is it it was able to make enough..

"The schools have not seen the same kind of Boone that the economy's have. And I think teachers saw that. And we're getting really really frustrated that's Mariah blend get national education reporter for the Washington Post. I spoke with her about why teachers strikes began and how they were affecting the midterms. Well, I think there's a few things at play. I do think that conditions in the schools in some places, at least it get worse. Because now, we're not only talking about teacher pay, but states are facing huge revenue problems as a result of tumbling oil prices and also because of tax cuts and some states have not even recovered since the recession, even though their economies have I think also sort of the general energy in the country is that of activists. Awesome. And there's also a lot of frustration about education secretary, Betsy DeVos, and the fact that she was appointed even Republican teachers even teachers who support Trump are very frustrated with her appointment in looking at places like Arizona and Oklahoma and West Virginia did the teacher activism. What impact did that have on ways in which teachers were funded themselves and the schools were funded? So in West Virginia, they did succeed in getting raise as they did in Oklahoma. In oklahoma. What was really extraordinary is. The teacher is successfully pressed the legislatures into our raising taxes on the oil and gas industry, which is incredible in Arizona. The governor there Doug Ducey has pledged a twenty percent raise by twenty twenty. But there's a lot of skepticism that he can actually make that happen because he's relying on some pretty rosy revenue projections, and he's holding a pledge to never raise taxes. So is your expectation than that these fights are just beginning rather than that these marches marked an end to something are they actually a beginning. I think we're seeing actually a transformation of the energy we've seen teachers run for office. Teachers get politically involved in other ways teachers throw their weight behind longshot candidates like Richard Ojeda in West Virginia. Who was one of the first lawmakers to stand up on behalf of teachers in a state. I've talked. The teachers who are deeply familiar with state policy now, and they never were politically active before certainly people. I've spoken to said that they've seen a huge increase in the number of teachers who have run and not only that but lawmakers that stood against teachers or cross teacher unions seemed to be getting punished in Oklahoma. For example, something like a half dozen state lawmakers who were incumbents were ousted in the primaries the same happened in West Virginia. So you're seeing a lot of states teachers are are really flexing their muscles. And a lot of different ways. Are you noticing that voters have different perceptions of teachers and their expectations for what teachers should get paid? And how they should be treated than voters have been seeing teachers in previous times. Yeah. I think two things I've talked to grassroots organizations in Arizona and Oklahoma who are sort of creating these pro. Education slates. And so it's not really about whether the candidate is a Republican or a democrat. It's about where do they stand on raising funding for schools in Arizona, something like forty percent of voters said that was one of their top. If not the top issue for them. Same thing in Colorado. It's a huge issue in Kansas to sort of indirectly the election has become sort of a referendum on whether governor Brown backs tax cuts were a successor disaster. So I think there is I don't know if it's a changing perception of teachers, but everybody has a visceral connection to education, and I think the plight of educators is getting a lot more attention. Now, rightfully so because in a lot of places they're facing some pretty severe challenges. So do you think we're in a new phase, then of activism around the issue of education and teachers that we're going to see? Beyond the two thousand eighteen election. I believe so even before the teacher strikes or even as they were starting Republican governors starting to recognize that that they needed to burnish their credentials on education. And they started campaigning on how well they refunding education. It's no longer necessarily about tax cuts and responsible spending. Governor Doug Ducey has campaigned on being the education governor. So as Scott Walker. Got marker who famously gutted the power of public sector unions and also cut school funding has been advertising the fact that he put a lot more money into schools during his tenure and Scott Walker, of course, running against the state superintendent of schools, and I assume then that education is playing a very significant role in the Wisconsin governor's race. Yes. It's playing a huge role. And I believe it's it may be one thing that is making that democratic candidate competitive is the fact that he is the superintendent of education. So I think this was going to happen anyhow, but I think there is this recognition that schools are really important to people and that they don't want to see them in destitute condition.
