"Hate the kid next to them based on skin color. They will teach your kids at a man's ass in their face with fish in that shaking at a drag queen story hour is some kind of holistic mechanism to improve their lives. They'll tell you your money's their money, your healthcare is their healthcare, your kids, their kid. And they will do everything to make sure that if you don't abide by any of that that your life is destroyed, you are bullied and punished on social media and made an example of what the Hester prince scarlet letter in your neighborhood. Good luck with that. You don't vote on Tuesday or now. You're a willing accomplice to that. But yeah, my apologies for not being cute about it, but the time for being cute is over. My time in politics is up. I ran. I had the balls to put my name on the ballot, and you know what? I lost. I got my ass kicked in two of them. One of them I almost won, but almost don't matter. This is horseshoes and hand grenades, folks. There's no close there's no second place in politics. I lost. I lost. But I got my ass up off the mat, and I dust it off, and I said, you know, I'm not done with this. I'm not done with this country. I'm not done advocating. For actual freedom and liberty, the freedoms and liberties I just spoke about, not some campaign slogan. Economic liberty, school, school choice, liberty and freedom. Healthcare liberty and freedom. And let me tell you outside of the big movie it's a big four. One more bit of freedom. The freedom to walk down the street without some maniacs that can a knife in your back and stealing your wife's cell phone. That's on the ballot. What other inspiration could you possibly need to vote this Tuesday? What else could you possibly need to hear? I am going to do everything in my power to assist you, your neighbors, and anyone else on the fence about why you need to do this out of those of you who already voted. My sincere apologies for sounding somewhat cautionary and maybe aggressive in this open. I know you're in this fight with us. But we're running out of time to get those people on the fence out there. Whatever, what do you need me to tell you? How bad does it have to get? How much I was just, I just got out, I taped early somewhat so I did Fox and Friends and I went to local first watch. It's a great place here in Martin county, and I had the people are really nice. I'm sitting in there and I saw this lady who I eat in our Italian restaurant once in a while four ket is in over in the palm city area. It's amazing. And I run into our names France. She was super nice. No joke. She says, hey, I haven't been in a while. Busy writing this book and all this stuff. She's telling me that she did not know I was going to put this on the air so sorry for him, but I assume it was Republican assumption. She said, you know, salads aren't even free anymore, and the Italian restaurant. I'm like, what happened? She just used to conclude them. She said, damn, lettuce is so expensive. I can't. I can't stay in business giving you a freestyle. A free salad. You ever see that movie when marky Mark is the bodybuilder with The Rock? And they make the joke about salad that poor people invented salad. Now even we can't afford it. The salad was like the go to. When you couldn't afford steak and bacon, you know we can't even afford some. That's because of this zero in The White House. You can't even buy solid. Freaking salad, bro we're not talking about Caviar, foie GRAS. We're not talking about tomahawk bone in ribeye. We're not talking about any of them. We're talking about solid. Remember Allen Iverson playoffs? Playoffs. You had no practice. We're talking about practice, Jim Morrison. You're talking about practice. You're talking about salad. They can't even afford solid bro. You know what salad is? Chlorophyll and water. That's what salad is. Salad doesn't taste good, unless you have something on it. Like bacon, or like hard boiled egg, or dressing, 'cause it solid, bro it's chlorophyll. And water. They can't even afford salad. That's because of this tool bag in The White House right now. Get out and vote. You got a few more days. No excuses. I'll be right back. Larry elder here, and I want to talk to you for a minute about 100% drug free relief factor. You know we all get a little bit older every day, and we all experience aches and pains. Many people even struggle just to get out of bed in the morning and face the world. If you're one of them, then you could be exactly the person relief factor was made to help. Let me tell you about Catherine in Pennsylvania. She had shoulder eggs, and I mean the kind that were ruining her life. She decided to give relief actor a try because she'd heard so many of us on the radio singing its praises. And guess what? After only a few weeks, her pain was nearly gone. No side effects just relief. Many of my friends and I take relief factor every single day. Hundreds of thousands of others have tried it, and about 70% have gone on

"This is cold. Why I hope this is false. That senator Tim Scott tweeted an endorsement for Lisa Murkowski. It is legit. Will you send that to me? I mean, that is a very foolish political move if you want to run for a higher office, I would think. At least from rakowski, it's not she's not just liberal. She's bought and paid for by the NEA and the AFT. And Tim Scott has made school choice one of his primary issues. If that's true, he's endorsing somebody who opposes it. Now we can't have that anymore. We can't just go along anymore. And I'm trying to confirm this. Quite frankly, they're just certain lines that I can't put up with. I mean, the NEA is a group I have been fighting since I was 18, 19 years old and elected to a local school board. I supported school choice before anybody even knew what school choice was. And trying to pull it up, give me a second, damn thing is very, very slow. Here we go. This is live and national, as you know. Here it is. List some staffer put it up there. This was posted one 37 p.m. eastern today. We need strong leaders like Lisa Murkowski, summon who has worked tirelessly for the people of Alaska her entire career. Alaska, please join me in supporting Lisa for Senate. That is amazing. I'm very disappointed. That's how I'll leave it at that. And there are other many solid posts here where he's challenging the teachers unions. Once better schools, school choice, but you just endorse the Republican who gets the biggest support from the teachers union. And that's for a reason. They man the precincts up there in Alaska. From Murkowski, there are notorious for having her in their back pocket. So that just doesn't square up with me. Anyway, I thought I'd mention that to you. Unfortunately, it's very disappointing. That heat really, you know, people keep telling the heat really isn't letting up this summer. What do you expect it to do? Expecting the snow? Yes, it's hot. We call it summer. It's weather change. It's climate change. It's hot. We're seeing records this year, really? We're seeing records every year, I think. Some lower some higher. Well, anyway, it is summer. It does get hot, and that's why you ought to get red lane cotton. Their signature 100% cotton sheets are ideal for the summer heat. And let me tell you why. Cotton is natural. It's breathable, moisture wicking, crisp, gentle on the skin. It's ideal for the summertime. Ideal. You might be thinking, can I get these qualities with any sheet set from any big box store, the answer? No. You can't. Red locked red line cotton, red LAN cotton is 100% grown in Maine in the USA. We even know the name of the farm. It's the Jaeger family farm in Alabama. Redland, meticulously scrutinizes their supply chain to ensure that everything they offer

"And that means we're not teaching human sexuality. We're not teaching race. We're not doing any of this sort of stuff. Does Texas have a curriculum review underway to get the woke out of the school? We're focusing on this on the legislature before I was sworn in. Banned CRT, but we are hearing reports all across the state of it creeping up through other means, less overt means. And so we're going to continue to tackle that problem. But I will tell you, and maybe you have to hear thoughts you may have on this. But I do not understand the liberal teachers unions and some of the professional educational establishments fixation almost obsession with talking about highly sexualized material with second and third graders that don't belong to them. It's a 90 ten issue. I mean, just like boys participating in girls sports because they're having a gender dysphoria. 90% of the people think that's not a good idea. We care for in a compassionate towards children who are troubled and making some kind of emotional journey. But that small group of people can not turn upside down the rest. And so what I understand is on 90 ten issues when I heard former president Trump and former vice president Pence on the same day make the same appeal to save girls sports. I know it's a winner. And we ban that. It was right after I was sworn in. I think it was the first bill that I co authored in the Texas legislature. And we actually outlawed boys competing with girls sports, at least through the 12th grade, and I think we're going to look to actually expand that into college next year in the state of Texas. And what kind of pushback the teachers union because I don't like teachers want this either. It's your dad's additional conflict that there are classrooms. They don't want to do it. But that 10% is very loud and very angry. They're very loud. And I think there's a big distinction between when we talk about teachers talking about teachers themselves and the teachers unions. Because most teachers in Texas are great people who are actually conservatives themselves. But the teachers unions, including in the state of Texas, have had far too much power for far too long, and I look forward to continuing to degrade their influence in the state of America. So Brian with four young children. Yes. You've got to have schools that work, right? I've got 5 grandchildren now. My kids all went to public school in California at a great public school. Terrific. I don't know what they're like now, but I do have to worry about Virginia's goals. It's where all my grandchildren live, you got four, the three boys and the girl, do you hope that they can go to public school? I hope that every public school in the state of Texas performs at a level that every parent who wants to send their kids there can send their kids there and have the full confidence that the age of 18, they will have marketable skills to provide for them and for their families. I send my kids to public school. I am pro public schools school choice is not a threat to public schools. And in fact, letting competition work in the marketplace it would finally do an education where it doesn't every other sector the government hasn't corrupted. And that over time, quality should be going up and costs should be going down. But because government has a monopoly in education, K12 in this country, especially in the state of Texas, we're having the exact opposite or quality is continually going down. Price, it's more costly per pupil. And then I would add on another layer because they're able to behave as a monopolist. They're inserting liberal extreme woke and doctor nation into these children. The left targeted education strategically over generation ago because they know if they can capture those folks that women inside of a generation, they can turn some of the most fundamental principles that we hold dear as Americans and Texans on their heads and unfortunately they've been.

"Electoral votes cast by Florida were cast by electors not lawfully certified because they violated Florida's prohibition against dual office holding. It's kind of weird, right? How he knows that's clearly on digital video on tape is we used to say he knows that's out there. So Jamie Raskin knows that's out there, so why would Jamie Raskin get up in front of the January 6th committee now and suggest that he's never seen anything like this? There's no precedent for it. Because he doesn't care. Because he knows if he says it and lies about it, everything is to be viewed through the lens of does it hurt Donald Trump and let's say 20% of the people hear my show today and realize Jamie Raskin's Lion Jamie Raskin says well 80% of people won't and me saying and then pretending that no one's objected to election results in modern U.S. history, even though I just did it a few years ago, they won't see it so it won't matter. It'll hurt Donald Trump, but what do I care if I lose credibility? Dignity is not my thing anyway. They are doing all this because they are desperate to stop Donald Trump. Okay, now let's go back to the dick Morris article without further delay. Why do they want to stop Donald Trump? Dick Morris sums it up in this piece. Again, Washington examiner be in my newsletter today, bungee dot com slash newsletter if you want to check it out. Quote, Trump's political power is rooted in his unique ability to attract as no other American political figure can. Two key groups of swing voters who became part of his court constituency. White high school educated voters and Hispanic American patriots said dick Mars, laying out another element of the upcoming Trump campaign strategy. Says again, quote, quote from dick morth, can he win? Not only can he win, he will win. And nobody else can. As surely as he was our 45th president, he will be our 47th as well, wrote dick Morris. Folks predictions are like holes you get it. Everybody's got one. But dick Morris predictions have been very good. And he's had his finger on the pulse of both political parties for a long time. You don't have to like him. You don't have to respect him. You don't even have to know him. I'm just telling you that his political instincts are a lot better than others and he knows both sides of the aisle. And he understands one thing I have been beating down the throats and heads of the audience since I've been on the air here. That the reason Donald Trump is such a tier one level monumental threat. To the existence of the national Democrat party, as they can not exist without what they refer to as demographic destiny. The Democrats have for decades have not coalesced around a popular or even populist message. Their message is dumb. The white patriarchies, the source of power in this country, tax the hell out of people. Don't send people to good schools, school choice. Thanks. I mean, this isn't a message. Yeah, they couch it and obviously euphemisms, but that's generally the best. It's not popular. How do they keep winning at the national level? Because they do. They keep winning at the national level through, plays to identity politics that minorities are being attacked by Republicans and they're going to protect you. They need this coalition of Hispanic black and minority voters. That's one tranche of voters they need. Second, they need young voters and third they need women, and they figured that as the population became in their words, you know, less white. I'm going to play their words in a minute. That this was going to lead to a quote demographic destiny. They've used that term often. You've written books about it. And that this demographic destiny was going to lead to a long-term dominance of the party like they had in the FDR era. What happened, folks? Donald Trump changed it. This is why I laugh when media people talk about replacement theory. One, it's a leftist fascination replacement theory. It's their thing. And secondly, the theory is blown up in their face. As Donald Trump is convinced, a lot of Hispanic voters and minority voters to flip their votes for Democrat, the Republicans. So you're wrong on both fronts. Oh, that's not a Democrat thing. Democratic destiny and replacement theory really, Jim queue up for me cut three. Here is a man in leadership in the Democrat party in the Senate side for a really long time. Tricky dick Durbin out of Illinois, talking about it on the Senate floor. Check this out. The answer is very simple. The demographics of America are not on the side of the Republican
"schools school choice" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"Steve, what a pleasure, your first time on the podcast, thank you so much for joining me. As I look around the country, there's so much chaos on so many fronts going on with Biden. Did you expect this administration to be so far off the rails? Going into the midterms? Well, the Nash first grade to be with you. And I know we've met in person other settings, but it's great to be with you on this podcast. And yeah, if you think about it right now, I mean, we are a nation in crisis and it's on so many fronts. It's not like we've got an issue just in one area of the country. You know, we've got an inflation crisis. Gasoline, price crisis. We've got a border crisis. You know, you've got the government going after parents who get involved in their kids education, but then they're encouraging people to break federal law and go protest in front of Supreme Court Justices, houses to try to change the results of a court decision. I mean, this is how upside down things are. And you wonder why people are so livid and angry with President Biden's failures on all of these fronts. I mean, it's hurting families, low income families, especially paying more for everything, not just gasoline prices. But everything and it was so much better two years ago in terms of an economy ready to come back. People ready to come out of COVID with low gas prices, strong energy supply, a secure border, how much has changed in two years, I think, is shocked. A lot of Americans and not in a good way. Now, in some ways, this makes it really easy for the GOP because if Biden is bungling on all fronts and if his poll ratings are plummeting and he doesn't seem to know or care, the Republicans could sort of do nothing and probably do pretty well in the midterms. My question to you is, do you think the GOP needs a positive strategy of saying, listen, this is our agenda going forward. I mean, my mind is flashing back a little bit to 1994, gingrich and the contract with America. If you elect us, we will do these things. So far I don't think the Republicans have put forward that kind of agenda. Do they need to or is it is this the case because it's a midterm? Let's just make it a referendum on Biden. Yeah, and in fact, we are working on that and just starting with kind of where we are. You can see 32 Democrats have already said they're not running for reelection in the house. President Biden and Nancy Pelosi's popularity is in the tank, especially in swing districts around the country. We've got phenomenal candidates. I think we're going to have a great year, but there hasn't been an election yet. And there is no complacency. And by the way, I'm a big sports fan. I hate the prevent defense. So the idea that, you know, oh, we're going to win if we just sit back and do nothing. It's not who we are. It's not in our DNA. I'm a policy guy. I think now more than ever is the time to go run on a bold conservative agenda to show the country. They're already convinced that President Biden and Nancy Pelosi have wrecked the economy have destroyed so many of the fundamentals that make America great, but I think this is the best time to go show them what we're about. Why conservative policy so much better to fix these problems to get parents more involved in their kids education where they're shut out of schools. School choice, for example, dinesh, never a better time to talk about school choice and bold energy policy. But we've been meeting with Newt Gingrich and a lot of others, but our members have come together. And we're working on that kind of contract with American document. And it'll probably be called commitment to America. And we're looking at rolling out this summer. And if you think about the contract with American 94, it was rolled out closer to the election when people, you know, junkies like us are working on all of these issues all the time, but the public really starts focusing on elections by Labor Day. Once you get through primaries, we're still no states finished the primaries even. You know, it's very few states have. So let's go to this summer and you're going to see, and I think most Americans are going to be excited by this commitment to America when they see what conservative policy can do to secure the border to lower gas prices to address the supply chain crisis to secure our country and oh, by the way, you look at the crime in the streets where the left has gone for defunding the police and letting people out on no bail, confronting some of those challenges as well. And I think there's never been a better time to contrast failed liberalism with bold conservatism. One of the things I notice on social media is there's a lot of kind of score machine going on between people who see themselves as sort of the maga types versus the Republican establishment. Now, when I look at the actual issues, it doesn't seem like there's a radical difference of position. In other words, even people who call themselves American nationalists, it's kind of like if I were to say, you know, my family comes first, it doesn't mean I don't care about my neighbors, so I don't care about my community. There's no reason why one can combine America first with a kind of prudent internationalism, but here's my point..

"Right, let's take a couple of calls real quick. And then I want to talk to you about what's happening in our schools school choice. Versus public schools, what the teachers unions are up to, what in collusion with the Biden administration or I should say vice versa with the Biden administration is up to with the teachers unions. It's 6 stuff, guys. They really want our kids to be victims and not students. It's insane. They're raising these kids in my opinion to be little brown shirts that they can control. Anyway, let's take a couple of calls real quick. Let's go to we have LT and Yucaipa, LT, welcome to the Carl Jackson show. You've got the mic. Thank you, Carl. Enjoying your show. Listen, I was just wondering, how much you know about the history of nationalist China? And why it became nationalist China. It was for most of the war. And when Shane can I shake that run out of China by the Japanese, he settled over there went into exile over there. Human his wife, and then this is one of the AVG came into China to try to run the Japanese out. And then after that, that's when it became Taiwan and Taiwan is an independent country. China is doing the same thing or thinking about it, same thing, the Russians are doing, do you think? And it's ridiculous. Yeah, you know what? LT, listen, I really appreciate it. I think you're right. I think it's in China's best interest. I got a hat tip to forgotten man. It's in China's best interest to help rushing Ukraine because it distracts us. I don't think we can take our eyes off of China. And this is why I really believe we don't have the right man and The White House. I know the remedy is the election cycle. I get it. But you guys can not look at Joe Biden honestly. I don't think he can last. I am shocked that this guy has lasted this long. I predicted it would be 6 months. All right, I was wrong on that, but looking at this guy, I mean, this guy, honestly, we're in a very bad situation, and he's making the world a more dangerous, dangerous place. We get about a minute, Patrick, but let's go to Patrick in Chicago, Patrick. Welcome to Carl Jackson prime time. You've got the mic. Hey, Carl. So I'm from Chicago and our local station is a.m. 5 60. The answer. And I first heard you when you were southern in for Larry elder for his 7 o'clock to 9 o'clock plot, but now you're on the 7 o'clock, and I'm gonna clock slide.

I believe it's in TD TV, but he'll be back on tomorrow, but yeah, that was one of my concerns because I understand everything happened so abruptly and then all of a sudden here I am, believe me, it was a little, it was a little awkward. I'm just being honest with you, but listen, Larry elder isn't going away. Larry elder is still extremely involved politically. He still has his elder for America PAC and you can hear him here hear him here at 7 p.m. eastern standard time.

So you'll be able to catch him tomorrow evening right here, 7 p.m. eastern standard time. I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to be able to share that information again. Because I understand. It feels different. It's a little awkward. Everything happens so quickly, but no, I did not bump Larry elder off. We'll be back. And of course, the lovely and talented Carl Jackson will be successful. This is the show. Political analyst Carl Jackson that explains it all. This is Carl Jackson, prime time. Carl, we'll start with you..

"This is all things considered from NPR news I'm Mary Louise Kelly And I'm Adi Cornish The national defense authorization act or NDAA passed last night and is headed towards the Senate Joining us now is Conor O'Brien a defense reporter for Politico has been following the story Welcome to the program Thanks for having me Tell us about the legislation's focus on Russia and China Well this has been a particular focus of The Pentagon trying to after 20 years of war and Afghanistan in the Middle East to reorient and match kind of the military modernization that we've seen coming out of Russia and China It was the focus of the national defense strategy that was issued under the Trump administration and continues under the Biden administration So and it's pretty popular on Capitol Hill So what you saw in this defense Bill was a focus on Russia and China Congress a couple of years ago created this what's called the Pacific deterrent initiative To reorient the military to the Pacific and build up posture there and deter China they put $7 billion into that a couple billion more than the Biden administration requested on Russia with the threat to Ukraine They approved $300 million to arm Ukraine about 50 million more than the administration requested So there are a number of things to that effect It's a major theme of this legislation Money for new technologies That's another that's another area of emphasis for The Pentagon and for lawmakers I think a big thing that you saw in this bill was providing funding for research and development for emerging technologies emphasis on things like AI and hypersonic missiles that are being developed by Russia and China And to allow for that investment you saw a willingness from Congress to allow The Pentagon to retire a lot of older weapons there were some of those some of those parochial battles over some of these what they call legacy weapons planes ships where Congress did kind of override The Pentagon but you did see some willingness to let them move forward with that and to reinvest that You called dropping women out of the draft a stunning reversal Why Well that was the provision that was proposed to expand selective service to require women to register for a draft Was in both the House and Senate defense bills And normally when something is in both bills it's typically a pretty good indicator of bipartisan support which it did have And that it would be in a final compromise bill So when we found out that it was that it was going to be out of the final agreement that was quite surprising I was a victory for conservatives like Josh hawley Jimmy and pushed to get that out of there really played hardball And was indicative of some of the wins that Republicans got in this bill That's Conor O'Brien defense reporter for Politico Thank you for your time Thanks Today the U.S. Supreme Court's conservative supermajority seem poised to hand school choice advocates a big victory as in paralegal affairs correspondent Nina totenberg reports that could mean a very big expansion of state programs that are required to fund religious education Maine is a state so rural that a majority of school districts don't have a high school The way the state has dealt with that problem is to contract with existing public high schools to take kids from the districts with no high school and to pay the same amount to non sectarian private schools to take up the slack as well What the state will not do is pay tuition for students attending religious schools School choice advocates have long sought ways to promote equal treatment for religious schools with taxpayer funds and they had a willing audience today from the court 6 conservatives 5 of whom attended religious schools all signaled that they too view mains refusal to find religious schools as unconstitutional The court's liberals noted that in the past the court has said states may have voucher programs that allow parents to send their kids to religious schools but that in this case school choice advocates are asking the court to require that states must treat religious schools the same way they treat non sectarian private schools Justice breyer suggested that in this case beliefs taught in a religious school seemed to.

She's getting whipped this poor lady, and that's what they think is business and, uh, businesslike and professional. Now listen, the former Obama Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. And also, uh, Obama's ex CIA chief. This guy named Mike Morrell, the two of them the two of them came out and they were they were. They were hammering Biden over the Afghanistan thing saying, Hey, listen, admit your mistakes. Take a listen to this. The most important thing for this president to do is to be willing to accept responsibility for the mistakes and to move on. And to basically do what is necessary now to protect our national security. The Taliban is harboring Zawahiri today. Taliban is harboring Al Qaeda today. Taliban winning the war in Afghanistan. And then the way our exit. Happened. Has absolutely inspired jihadist all over the world.

Of course, uh, the Biden people in the media. They want you to move on. As I played earlier Sunday morning shows don't even talk about Afghanistan. It was all about the vaccine mandates.

So, but it doesn't look like any of them are going to be victorious, according to the polls, And also this ballot Harvesting is terrible. Ballot harvesting and the fact that they can count ballots that come in up to 17 days after today, up to 17 days, and the media again running interference that the gorilla, the Lady and the gorilla mask, the white lady and the gorilla mask, throwing the eggs. The media completely ignored that they ignored a lot of other things, the substance running again running interference for governor Newsom, just like they did with Joe Biden on November 3rd. Now, Uh, last night, Larry Elder. He was on Tucker's show. He saw some of that This got personal because this woman, rose McGowan apparently came out in support of Larry Elder, she says. That Gavin Newsom's wife pressured her to shut up about Harvey Weinstein. For some reason, anyway, Tucker asked, Uh, Larry Elder question. Listen to this exchange. Gavin Newsom. Has he genuinely creepy personal life? I'm just saying, I mean, you can look it up if you want is he's weird. Okay? I don't think you're attacking is sex life. Are you or his personal life, man? Aren't you stick sticking to the issues that seems like to me? Well, I'm trying to stick to the issues, but I will tell you I've been attacked as being a sexist and just day before yesterday, Rose McGowan, the actress. Who outed Harvey Weinstein says that six months before the big expose on Harvey Weinstein, the sexual predator Gavin Newsom wife called her on behalf of Harvey Weinsteins lawyer and said something to the effect of what can I do to make you happy? What can I do to make this thing go away? I have no idea whether or not it's true or false. All I know is that had been alleged against me. That's all I'll be talking about. From now until the day I die. But the Washington Post New York Times completely oblivious to this story. It's a bombshell story if it were made against me. Absolutely right. It would be, but the media again ignores it. So in that sense the election is already rigged. Right? It's very, um, similar to Hunter Biden, right. That was a bombshell story took her head that guy on for two nights and You would have thought that may, of course, his father the presidency, but it didn't And it's not gonna cost Governor Newsom the gubernatorial job, either. Today he's not only going to win. My prediction is he's going to clobber Larry older. Bruce Jenner and the rest of them labrum. And and, uh and I'm what basis I mean, Governor, French laundry, The hypocrite who who closed out all the schools and send his his his kids to private school. So typical, so typical. Remember back During the busing episode when they were, you know, busing white kids to black schools and black black kids to white schools. All that stuff all the proponents. They sent their kids to private school. The Kennedys, for example, in Boston. Yeah, we're all for passing. All the kids went to private school. None of them were sitting next to a black kid. None of them But this guy, I mean, with the homelessness, the crimes, the brownouts, the wildfires, the mismanagement of the wildfires. All this stuff this guy's ruined California. It doesn't matter. And Larry Elder. He made a great case. Uh, for school choice. I told you yesterday about this kid happened to read about it was in the New York Post this kid in bed Stuy. He passed the high school specialized test He got into Brooklyn Tech. He got into Brooklyn Tech. He's a black kid from bed Stuy. Now why did he get into Brooklyn Tech? Well, because he had two parents, a mother and a father there from Haiti that cared. And they were strict. They made him do homework. They wouldn't let him watch TV during the week until or until his homework was done on the weekends. Even they were very, very strict. They wouldn't even let him play sports until the seventh grade because they wanted him to focus on education. Education. That's more important. You're not going to be a basketball player. Stop with those silly dreams. I mean, let's just show the displays them real talent. But he also went to a charter school school choice. You went to a charter school. He wasn't stuck in these horrible public schools, and he had two parents that cared, and he passed the specialized high school test, which these woke stirs These woke supremacists tell you that blacks can't do, which is why they want to get rid of it right and screw the Asians and the Jews and then and whatever. Whatever The point is the school in the blacks as well. But anyway, listen to Larry Elder who's very smart guy on school choice. I support school choice. The number one obstacle to school choice is the teachers union, not teachers. Teachers Union number one thunder of my opponent, Gavin Newsom is a powerful teachers union. So why black and brown parents routinely pulled that lever for the Democratic Party that stops them from the number one path to escaping poverty, which is to at least finish high school is beyond me. I'm going to break this Jedi mind trick stranglehold that Democrats have over black and brown voters, and that's why I believe Obama. A and Bernie Sanders. And Senator Warren and the others have come to California and weighed in on this race when they cannot defend the indefensible record of my opponent, Gavin Newsom. I've got friends who live in California. One texted me just now. She's like, Yes, he absolutely has destroyed this, uh, the state and it just doesn't seem to matter because Democrats are going to pull that d level every time And they're going to find a way to, uh, excuse some of their own folks actions because they are Democrats first in the heat, Donald Trump, and that's my peer. I mean, I hope I'm wrong moving forward and we take back the house in 2022 when Trump jumps in in 2024 gets back to Pennsylvania Avenue. But right now, my fear is is that people are not looking at what's going on in this country. They remain loyal, loyal to their party and the hatred for the other party is still as as much as ever despite what's going on in the country today? Yeah, well, hopefully, I mean, that's the only hope is that that change is the only day it will be incremental. It will be slow. Uh, even President Trump made strides with the black community and the black vote. And with independence as well..
"schools school choice" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Welcome back to secular school choice back at the Supreme Court. Once again. This is our brief from holding my hands right now. This case is out of Maine. Walter Weber, a senior counsel with the A. C L. J is joining us now, Walter my first question for you just before we even get into the the factual details, which might be the reason why Is it? It seems like when it came to school choice and religious schools and parents having the opportunity to just make the decision on their own, that the Supreme Court answer that and then in a case the Espinosa case out of Montana, these states that have these amendments which are really anti Catholic amendments, but were broader than that at the time, so it didn't look that way. On paper, the Blaine amendments, the court gutted In 2020. So why are we back at the Supreme Court again on this question? Jordan has a great question that there seems to be recalcitrant or resistance in the lower courts. It's not entirely the fault of the lower courts. Keep mind at the Supreme Court for a number of years, mainly in the seventies, and sometime after that was very strict about saying You can't have any government funds going to the teaching of religion. And the Supreme Court since that clarified that school choice is fine, and in fact not only to find that in some circumstances, it's a constitutional right. You can't penalize people. Parents in particular because they choose a religious education for their Children. So there's a little bit of lingering tension between this idea that you have to keep all federal or state money away from religious schools. Versus saying in the school choice program. As long as you treat everyone equally, that's fine. You know, Walter, the issue here. It's specific to this is out of Maine. And we learned about this in Maine specific in some of the facts, specifics that there are rural areas where there might not be public schools nearby. I mean, so that become difficult. So main enacts this program. Uh, what was it was at the state or was it that was at the courts that prevented the parents? From utilizing these vouchers to go to religious schools if they chose It was the state. What happened was that As you said Jordan in Maine. There a lot of rural areas where they just don't have a public high school. In fact, I think it's about 50%. Maybe even more than 50% of the quote unquote school units in the state do not have Public high schools. So what the state did through its legislatures have said, Well, all right, If you don't have a public high school, you can just pay the parents the tuition up to a certain cap. To any school. They want to go to private or public. And in fact, parents use that to go to both private, secular and private religious schools until The state in response to an attorney state attorney general opinion decided that it was an establishment problem for them to pay the tuition for parents at a religious schools. And so what they did was they adopted a new law, saying You can send your kids to any school you want and we'll pay for it. Except not a school that quote unquote promotes the faith or belief system with which it is associated and or presents. The material taught through the lens of his faith, so you can send your kids to religious school long as it doesn't teach religion. Which was obviously a problem. You know, Walter, I think about the cases that we've handled over the so many years at the Supreme Court. Dealing with religion clause of the establishment clause is one thing that we've been able to establish with the cases we've handled. And the president's we've handled is that in fact, the establishment clause doesn't license government I'm quoting from one of our opinions here. The the establishment clause doesn't license government to treat religious people are religious practices as if there's subversive. To the Constitution and subject to unique disabilities. Yet that's precisely what is happening. I agree with the the lower courts have been in conflict because the Supreme Court itself has been In conflict, and they had this very strict interpretation of church state separation for a long time. That is changed. Now. What do you feel like? The outcome of this case is going to be Well, I'm very optimistic about it because the Supreme Court has said In Trinity Lutheran Church and Espinosa. Most recent cases on the question that targeting Religious entities or persons for second class status is unconstitutional. It's not just a matter of the state can include them, The state cannot exclude them just because of who they are. Now what Maine is done in this case is trying to thread the needle and say, Well, all right, we're not excluding religious schools because their religious we're excluding them when they teach religion as if there's a difference between Being a religious school and teaching religion. Harry, we We've talked about this this issue of education as a civil rights issue. That's why we support broadly. The school school choice efforts and we fight the hurdles that come in the way like Walters type of this ridiculousness of saying, Well, no, you can use it a religious school but not an actual religious school. If they have any kind of religious training in the school day, and I mean some schools that would be very difficult to separate a history class out from Other classes. It's just because it be part of the culture of the school, which the parents would know. Then they would be making the decision but again, even when they want, it's like even when they want to give these opportunities. Can't quite get over the hurdle of saying it's okay to send your kid where you think is best and take out all the other issues. I mean, that just seems what ultimately what's fair. I think you're precisely correct. And so in the Zelman Simmons case, which was decided almost two decades ago, and it involved a school's system in Cleveland designed to advance the interests of African American and minority kids. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the parents, it said. That choice follows the that excuse me. The money follows the parent's choice, and that is enough to satisfy the religion causes. Today. We live in a very vexed time. People continuously talk about inclusion. They talk about diversity, except they don't want diversity when it comes to parents who want to place their kids in religious schools. And so I think we need to be very, very aggressive, very, very vigilant. Because at the end of the day we live in a time of real particular Arat ease where religion is under attack. But first and foremost, it's under attack in universities and colleges. And then this per percolates into state legislatures. And they are then misreading in my view. The United States Constitution. You know, Jordan, I was going to say something here, and that is that the and I think this is following up above what Harry and Walter have said the fact of the matter is, and I think we have to be clear on this is that there has been with changes in the Supreme Court. Um, I think a clearer understanding of what the establishment clause is. In the free exercise clause, Mean and actually pretty speech close to a mall to one of the things I wanted to get your insight on. You've got with Justice Gorsuch, Barrett and Kavanaugh added to the court. My sense is that the main case should not really be that you never count counted over until it's done. But it should not be a difficult case for them in light of where their own jurisprudence has been, even while they were on the lower courts. Yeah, I think that's right. And in fact, this should be a lopsided decision. I mean, unless, of course, unless somebody on the court is going to say we're not following our previous precedents that say you can't treat Religious people and religious choices. Somehow second class, uh, the idea that there is a difference between excluding religious schools and excluding schools that teach religion. It's just, uh it's fake. I mean, the it's like saying we're not making a law against evangelists are only people who preach the gospel, right. I mean, it's It's the same thing. So I think I think the Supreme Court should not have any problems. Seeing that That's the problem here. The fact that they lower courts may think that there was some wiggle room left. Probably just reflects the fact that the Supreme Court will decide the case in front of it and not future hypothetical cases. Now that the first circuit essentially dare them to say Well, tell us that their religious schools and schools, the future religion or the same thing, I would hope the Supreme Court would say. Yeah, they are. And Walter. I mean the final question this this would if this case if we're and we're filing today, if there's a victory here, it's clear like you said. They answered this question, which seems absurd. But then they answered, so it's clear for these lower courts. This has been a fundamental shift at the Supreme Court level, which would open the door to more states, uh, being more creative with their with their voucher programs in the school choice programs..
"schools school choice" Discussed on The Adam Carolla Show
"Was a that was a remnant from yesterday's conversation Let's see so. I was thinking about our friend friend of the show and hopefully knicks Governor of california larry elder Taken a lot of crap out there because he's pretty effective he doesn't really back down. He doesn't couch his stuff. He doesn't soft pedal eighties. All you know regulation and taxes and schools school choice and homeless. And he's got a plan but he's being It's being attacked out there in the media now a couple of things I was saying to. Dr drew. And i was talking to me yesterday. Actually spoke today about Larry elder and i'm like california is like a junkie that needs an intervention lights. They're not gonna be tears they're gonna fight it but we just need. We have the van waiting outside right. Essentially need johnny knoxville and the crew to show up at steve o's apartment. And just go fuck. We're leaving tonight in the van and california's i don't wanna go like this is good now in the fucking van rehab full lockdown. Rehab lake tahoe. Wine-country coat you get a personal trainer. You're going to be up at this every day. Dhabi time. I wanna go band in the van. It's time it's right now. If we if we come back in three weeks you're going to od like we need to do this. So larry elder. I've listened to for longtime time. It's all you the brass tacks kind of guy personality. Been on the radio out here and syndicated for twenty five years or something now anyway for some reason this intervention that we're staging here on california. It's not acceptable to like the la times or cnn or many other entities. Now i'm not sure why the look around and things aren't going well and just look at the numbers where we rank and education and homelessness and things like that okay. We could use an intervention but They don't have a lot to go off of larry. Now here's my thing. Larry like school. Choice if gavin. Newsom doesn't like school. Choice then articulate why you don't like school choice but you can't so now we're just at the point where this guy's got much ideas and you just call them racist and sexist. I also as i was saying larryelder. Sa- black man. I don't really particularly carefree. Stray says as long as he implements policies. Because what would those racist policies look like like. It's two thousand twenty one. It's california how would you implement racist policy race black man. I don't know how you do that. But i'll i'll play a few news clips and then i have some other ideas i I don't know what you want the la times headline here with him. Which is which is awesome. In by the way which shows there is no were were were out of boundaries in terms of keep calling people racist Have it larry. Elder is the black face of white supremacy. Oh boy been warned alright. So that's the la times bad and so that title was changed. The original article was published was recalled candidate. Larry elder is a threat to black californians. That's like if you go back into the archives valley that was the original title so that that's the new one. Well he's He's a threat to black americans in california. Two thousand twenty one. Even though he's black and comes for stop he comes from south central. He went to crenshaw. He was born and raised in south central. And that's his bones. Were made so. I do not know how the black guy who hails from south central is going to attack black californians but evidently the la times know something that we don't know well and it's also it historically we've talked about on the show how the you know sis. White karen comes to the rescue of these ethnic groups. I'm wondering what black californians think of larry elder. I don't really particularly care. What white writers fairly time. I wrote that. Here's here's another. Here's another interesting kind of mind bender california and we always talk about california's on the vanguard of all the progressive things that are going on cuisine high tash. But you know we're gay marriage or something whereas the tip of the spear of all the most progressive everything's california has never had a black governor. Wow so we are. We should have been the first with the black governor. Maybe the third zero black governors. It's been over one hundred and fifty years since we've had governing a hundred and fifty. I think i think it was eighteen. Forty nine was at eighteen. Forty nine that we came up with our governor here in california crystal anyway against eighteen. Forty eight forty nine. Our first governor not black human beings have ever been the governor of california. So i would look at this as kind of progressive. Because isn't it the l. A. times and cnn and msnbc who loves the notion of the first black vice president or woman woman. The first caller. I never stopped touting the first color all right well. Maybe we'll have the first black governor of california except for you guys. Don't give a shit about that because why he's black party wrong party that's it that's it so that's just the race just ends at the party was the case for him. Being bad for black americans. I know he. He speaks a lot of truths about black america. And they don't like that but anyway no they don't make their case they just say he's going to be bad like Later on so. I was watching They had there's joy reed has a great clip on. Msnbc and again. i don't know he's a black man. Who thinks he has better ideas than gavin news arguably has horrible ideas. So i don't know why. Msnbc needs to get into the fray but go ahead and attack ideas all right. Here's i'll play clip for that. This is a black man and it just goes to show you that it is true that even people of color can be influenced by white supremacists narratives and fall victim to it. Right now. joined by their elder. I mentioned he's thinking for himself. Automatically is falling victim forever. I believe he believes whatever he believes. Yes i don't think he's been no he over co op. One hundred percent of what he believes. I don't we don't have the screen working up here. Max pat but and that's pretty insulting to say if if you're a black man and you believe this somebody's in your ear. You couldn't possibly have. It's it's racist actually is is what it it's racist is what it is actually fallen prey to white supremacist culture. Beliefs or whatever. Whatever it is also is is less regulation or getting a desalinization for the pacific ocean or water storage. Or forestry these are white supremacists platform you certainly an outlier right in terms of like a guy like him who believes in sense so fervently and says the things he does put like. That's not a reason to say like always been co-opted or these are the views of someone who's gotten infiltrators by. He's a black guy who has different opinions than you. That doesn't mean he's been co opted and it doesn't mean he's a white supremacist with a black person's body yes and you know how like with newsom. Look i know. It's like to come from a broken home and yo- single mother..

Mark that we identify that we do not have shared purpose that we actually want to completely different things. I think that is actually very liberating for a citizen to realize because then you no longer have to kid yourself. Try to convince yourself that you have to try to achieve some sort of false promise of bipartisanship if somebody tells you today that they mean well. They're out of their minds. Teaching racism they're teaching transgenderism to eight year olds elementary school. They have destroyed academic freedom and our colleges and universities. Does that does that mean. Well look at the border now. The suffering that's going on the border because the democrat party wants to fundamentally change just the nature of the nation but that they're embracing this radical ideology that i just mentioned earlier. Do they mean well. Near attacking our economic system. You're tacking the ability for people to put bread on their table economic growth Opportunity when you're going after our energy system which is the heart and soul of everything you do economically in a country. Do they mean well. They've a funny way of showing it when they spend money massive amounts of money. That's going to bankrupt every generation that follows us. And they don't care they mean well when they prevent little poor kids in minority inner city neighborhoods from going to schools good schools school choice where they can actually get an education rather than have to worry about crime. Do they mean well when they push massive tax increases on successful people and give it to people who really make up their base or people who they are they trying to get to vote for them and that sort of thing do they mean well no.

I'm doing good. Watch your show every night question. I have Is this impeachment saying that they're doing it's it's a sham like you always say. You're wasting our tax dollars. Every single American tax hours. Is there a thing that American person can do to sue the government over this camp? If we could sue over the misappropriation of our tax dollars we being court and we win every time. If the rules of evidence supplied, you know it is. This is why J elections matter. There's a reason people leaving your great state of Michigan. Remember, Detroit lost half its frigging population. Because they were run out because of bureaucracy. Unions did did not think long term and that instance I don't have anything against unions at all. But it ended up being a disaster. You know now we have, you know, get right to work states of being ripped away. It's not good for American workers. Donald Trump prove that you can have record low unemployment for every demographic in this country by securing the borders getting rid of bureaucracy, bringing back manufacturing. And lowering taxes and incentivizing business. That's it. It's not complicated. Being a conservative is not complicated. And if you do conservative things, you win and the country wins and American workers win and my attitude now about the Republican Party cause I'm not a Republican is Well, you better understand what's happening. You better understand the people of this country and you better understand you let the Democrats be the party of the coastal elites and New York and New Joy C and D C and San Francisco and Los Angeles. They're gonna have. They can keep Chicago too. But if you ever the party working men and women secure borders, lower taxes, less bureaucracy, safe schools, school choice, safe cities long order. The other party of energy, independence, Secure borders. I think I said that and also constitutional justices free and fair trade. Peace through strength. You win. That's the agenda. Don't need to spell it out any. It doesn't get more complicated than that. That's me. That's what the conservative I am. And we hear all the fight, fight fight. Let's fight for those things because that benefits American workers that benefits are Children that benefits our safety that benefits job market that is friendly for job creation in manufacturing. And then we can have prosperity for everybody. And we won't need Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden or Kamila Harris is free Anything. Cause we'll be able to get our own. Anyway, you got me worked up J.

Within Democratic leadership that has to be stopped because they are owned by the teachers. Unions on the Aurora Education Association is taking a move is making a move. That is effectively designed to lock out anyone from being able to buy their school board members like the teachers unions to you, and you know, people think I'm over the top with this, but after any school board election Go back and look and see how much the teachers unions, their packs or money was given two packs to support their school board members. It's in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. You cannot expect to raise that from individual donors that the donor limits that we have in Colorado. So if you guys were all mad about, you know people being bought that we need to fix our campaign finance laws. So that unions can't outspend. Their opponents tend to one or 15 to 1 or 22 1, which is what happens on a regular basis in school board elections. There is an organization called Democrats for Education reform. They are very supportive of school reform, innovative schooling school choice. They want kids to have the best education available to them at any time, and they're looking for the means to make that happen wherever it comes from. And now the Aurora Education Association, which is the teacher's union that represents the teachers in Aurora, have said that they will not endorse or support any candidate. That accepts donation money from Democrats for education reform or similar groups. So that means that every member of the school board in Aurora is going to be bought and paid for by the teachers unions because nobody is going to be able to work with discuss or even cooperate with any of the organizations that actively advocate for school choice. Because they cannot afford to not be funded by the teachers unions. You know, And here's the thing. Years and years ago in Douglas County, Florida, they just Douglas County, Colorado, They decided that they were not gonna work with the teachers unions anymore, And there was a big push a reform movement. People got elected to the school board and the teachers unions did nothing but wreak havoc for the entire tenure of that board, showing up at meetings, screaming, yelling, carrying on interrupting things, creating chaos. And then they during the next election cycle. They went out and said, Hey, if you left us We'll bring calm back to the district. Because they were the ones creating mayhem. And it's sickening, and it happens over and over and over and over again and until there is a consistent and concerted, an organized effort to give enough money to packs that run candidates that are not beholden to teachers unions. The teachers unions will keep your Children out of school in a pandemic. That's the only reason kids are back in school. Full time. Teachers unions don't want it. Period full stop. And now this little end around This little end around is going to remove the voice from anyone who supports school reform, whether they're Republican or Democrat from the from the city of Aurora. And boy Aurora public schools are tearing it up over there. Their achievement gap is obscene. 30% of black students in Aurora can read on grade level 30. 30..

"Parents can sign up to get text, email updates information and advice about how they can create word rich environments in their homes because you know, at the end of the day, Brian again for someone like me who's been doing this for more than a decade. I don't think there's a more important data point that we could be looking at. For those of us who care about education. For there's there's no more important data point that we could be looking at them in third grade reading scores. And while Florida has made remarkable progress in public education outcomes over the last 20 years, We still have 43% of our third graders who cannot read at grade level. And why I think that data point is so important is when you look at the number of students who are coming into our K 12 system who are deemed quote not ready to be there. That number is at 42%. And then when you move out to 10th grade reading proficiency for most counties in Florida, you're still sitting Somewhere close to 40% of 10th graders who aren't reading at grade level. So there really is this very straight line that you can draw from whether another child is ready for kindergarten, whether he or she is going to be reading a proficiency by third grade. And ultimately, whether or not they're gonna be reading a great level by 10th grade. So for for our Legislature to look at third grade reading and to acknowledge that this is a challenge that we have to overcome in Florida on, we need to take a multi pronged appropriate approach to it. I think is is really In my time in this space, probably one of the most encouraging policy steps that I have seen. Well in my research mirrors what you're articulating about proficiency with literacy by the third grade, And so I bought you for also looking at, you know the information through an empirical lenses Well, along with what you're proposing here. One other item I'm watching in the state session is expanded school choice. I don't think it's a coincidence that as we have seen expanded school choice in Florida over the past real 15 or so years we've seen Significant improvement and education outcomes statewide, specifically in south border but also with previously underserved communities. Your thoughts Absolutely. The Senate has come up with a school school choice package They are. Our chamber has not yet ruled out a comprehensive package so I can't really speak to the substance of the impact of the of the state of the Senate bill, but Well, I think your point is is it is extremely important because I think there's a lot of misinformation in Florida about what the role of school choice has played. I mean, if you look at Florida of the last 20 years We have We have gone from the bottom quintile and student outcomes to the took to the top on Do you know to me as somebody who again was dedicated his professional life to educational equity. There's no more important data point that we should be looking at in public education policy than student outcomes. Amen. And right. I'll look we're gonna have to. We have to hold it there. We're up against the clock, but I appreciate it and we'll talk again. Continue the good work that strippers in it. Cancer.
