"Out this morning. Talking to governor scott walker. The new head of the young america's foundation started by one of my great heroes william f. buckley. Did you ever get to meet a buckley governor walker. I did not know. I admired him as well and president. Reagan when i went to boys nation of all things we were supposed to meet him but that was the week he went in for colon. Cancer surgery so a great admire certainly made me not just a conservative but an optimist. That's why even with all the odds stacked against us in terms of Campuses for sure but even increasingly culture in our communications. I'm still an opted. I still know that if we get the truth out we get the facts out about our love for america about our love for freedom and opportunity for every single individual in this great country that that message will prevail. Just gotta do it. Do you ever get the idea That we have to be a real battle for some people to wake up and to understand that we could lose something valuable. I guess most of us have been so blessed in america with the freedom that we hardly know what it is and it's only when it's under threat that we begin to realize that in the words of Frankly we've got keep it to a republic if you can keep. Suddenly we realize these work to for us to keep it. While you're exactly right. We just had earlier this year. One of our in person conferences are free. To pampers was in miami with the florida because thanks to run to santa's who's i think arguably the greatest active governor in today but we went to miami in particular in enact great state because we wanted to be close to an ever-growing growing increasingly conservative of cuban american population and we had speakers not connect to cuba Connect to families that have come from venezuela's well and in each of those instances one of the things iowa pointing out is is the for years one of my complaints conservatives is that we think and talk with their head. The left thinks in talks with their heart. We should concede the logic of her head but we should explain it in ways that appeal to the heart. There's nothing i think in my mind. More compelling issue then if you have someone whose family fled the socialism in a place like sway ella or increasingly a place like cuba over the years. They know that all the false promises of power to the people really ended up in a massive failure under socialism that the power goes into the hands of the few of the elite and the people get stuck with poverty and oppression one in particular point out. His uncle was was locked up under castro for nine years before his parents finally fled and came in through the freedom tower miami. Those sorts of stories are great..

"We still celebrate it. Things like veterans day and flag. Day and things. Like that. And i remember ronald reagan. Thirty two years ago at the end of his eight successful years president united states gave a farewell address and it he gave a warning. I often quote. He didn't just celebrate all the good that had happened changes in the economy. The improvements bits in the country the the increase patriotism. He gave a warning for parents going into the nineties which was so prophetic about needing to re institutionalized that belief in american the american idea the the idea he's actually specifically said we need to do more to teach american history and a share in civic rituals. I thought of him recently. When the owner of the dallas mavericks mark. Cuban was talking about not even playing the national anthem anymore. At the at the basketball gibbs thankfully that got reversed. But that i don you but for me. The things like that were the things. That honestly didn't even matter whether you're a democrat or republican or somewhere in between young or old. Everyone stood for the flag when it came by the parade. Everyone said the pledge of allegiance. Everyone's saying the national anthem. Those were things that united artists like the threads in the very flag itself and sadly the left. The radical element of the left is even taking that away from us in america. We need to regain that. We need to reach out and grab that. Bring that back. Not just the ritual the flag but all that it stands for with the freedom and opportunity to make that case the young people and let them know that we love america. We want our families to do well and we want to save for our neighbor. That's a powerful message. Well you you understand this well and you say it. Well thought about running for public office. I said you'll look at. I'm quarter century younger. That joe by. I figured got plenty of time. Ever wanna go back into that again but for right now i know that the number one mission not just for me personally if i ever chose to run particularly at a battleground. State like wisconsin. I i think it will be hard pressed to elect a solid conservative. We don't turn young people around employed them in the right direction. Give them accomplished to point them. In the direction of the truth of america about how great this country is about how great freedom and opportunity to contrast that with the divisiveness the radicals on the left group of americans versus another. I wanna pick Pickup rate there when we come back. You're you're singing my song folks from talking to governor scott walker young america's foundation. We'll be right back. Seem town some one babylon.

They just say you know what we don't want to know. Were afraid if we look through the telescope. If we look at what. You're saying mike we might think as you do. And then we'll be crazy like you and will know that joe biden wasn't actually elected and we don't want to be one of those conspiracy theorists. We'd rather be in our own fantasy that everything went as it's supposed to go And so what they did was they said. We're just can ignore it. We're gonna make fun of mike lindell we're gonna call him a conspiracy theorist and we're just not gonna look at the evidence we don't wanna know we don't wanna know. Don't make us look to the telescope. please Would pass on that and galileo made fun of these people are the people who who said he wouldn't look through.

"So so still. They're rubbing up against the idea that they have no idea what to do with their money. They're just killing time. They essentially it feels like they're north korea. The business now. It was time for the state of wisconsin to have an election. That would very much be a referendum on walker. The democrats nominated. Tony evers to be the states. Who was the state superintendent of education to try to beat walker. Every poll showed that the election would be a tossup when governor walker announced that he was running for reelection he didn't even mention foxconn or the foxconn deal probably because each household wisconsin was now on the hook for one thousand seven hundred and seventy four dollars to the taiwanese company maddening. You have an implicit trust in our government that if if it were a lifetime movie and it were the person we were dating we would have left fifteen times. i mean. it's an abusive relationship. There's a point that people don't get him. It's what the left always brings up if if your solution to what is. Essentially this is a story of capitalism failing coppola's failing and it's starting to try and make money in places where you can't make money and it's eating itself alive that's what's happening. With capitalism it is now consuming itself and and the problem is is that there is not a party and opposition. Party that says. Hey there's actually another way to do things. It's called socialism so intel. There is a party that offers an alternate solution. These elections will always be toss between the guy who is completely an insane and corrupt and essentially a money madman. He is a lunatic madman. He is ask stream as a human being can get. There's no more extreme than scott walker. Everything you just heard is a fucking madman and then on the other side is a shade over. So it's like. Hey this guy. This madman believes in this system. All based on money and then and then the other side is well governments not really yes. Yes and i mean in every you are watching pro wrestling. I mean it is pro wrestling and picture fighter. And you love your fighter. It is shocking constantly shocking but hours after the polls closed on november six two thousand eighteen. The race was called for democrat. Tony he one. By one percent. The people had chosen a new direction but the republican state legislature started to propose limiting the power of the office of governor before tony would be sworn in republicans wanted to ensure they limit early voting in future elections. They wanted to limit the governor's ability with to withdraw the state from a lawsuit the affordable care act but they needed governor walker signature before he left office. Just like when walker was first governor. Massive protests occurred inside the capitol building a former republican governor urged walker to not sign the reforms calling them quote completely political and a power. Grab a prominent republican donor and wisconsin wrote walker and email and told him quote. You can have a long successful career ahead. Don't stain it by this. Pointless poor loser action. The republican donor added quote. Ask yourself what would my father's say. What would the greatest man who ever lived. Jesus christ say and dave on december fourteenth as governor scott walker signed a bill to limit the power of governor of wisconsin so elicited with. That's what jesus. Christ what's the capital asked was very very anti. That's there's all those stories of jesus taking everyone's bread..

"One hundred twelve hours of overtime three times. The amount allowed by chinese law in total. Mr ma earned about one dollar an hour. So if anybody doesn't know what that is that's actually capitalism that's just the capital expenses work. Yeah that's why like. Yeah that's that is why when people defend when you see the democrats defending capitalism and saying they are actually capitalist. It's like i mean. Capitalism is a heroin addict. like it's coming back for more. It's not you. Cannot this idea that you can rain it in. It's just it is a heroin addict talking to you to get its next fix and it's been living like that for so long and keeps anywhere so eventually foxconn addressed the issue and surrounded all of its tall buildings with safety nets to prevent worker suicide. Which is the solution obvious. Solution is not to give people rights or to respect a labor laws. It is to put a net out there. It's called the station. A social safety net. That's right. that's that's what that is. I've been hearing about wondering where it was. They finally have a social safety net there for a spot really And just to be clear. This is the company that governor scott walker was paying three billion dollars to bring to wisconsin. Whoa whoa whoa do this fucking blabbity blah people don't and then use gloss over the fact that we're talking about thirteen thousand wisconsin. Jobs that the smoking fifty fifty three thousand dollars doing costing the state two hundred fifty thousand per person and it just leads to just assume mass suicide so it makes sense for a job not per person by the way per job. There's a difference. I called foxconn announced that they would build their factory and racine county just south of milwaukee. Now dave as the ultimate dollop reporter. I was lucky. Enough to talk to state senator chris larson who still laments this deal. I talked to him on the phone for about twenty minutes and he told me all about the concessions. The state was making this deal happen and they're pretty crazy. Foxconn wanted to have their own airport. They want a priority for roads. If they had a dispute at the local level they wanted to be able to go directly to the supreme court. Foxconn was the largest corporate giveaway in american history stepping over public rights. They were allowed to bulldoze communities for eminent domain..

There was like what is he talking about so he quit the race soon after but after. Scott walker's failed presidential. Run in two thousand fifteen. He remembered he was still governor. For -sconsin oh and scott had to rehabilitate his image after spending so much time neglecting the state to focus on a presidential campaign campaign that fell totally flat. He was also caught in a scandal of abusing the state airplane so he spent almost one million dollars flying around to state with a population. Just north of five and a half million in twenty-six deal. You it's not. You can really just driver wisconsin. And i don't know if anybody's ever tried that but it's suck an easy twenty sixteen. He flew three hundred and fifty one times. Think of that. I think he might. I think he might just been getting in the plane. Fly taking off landing at the same airport again just because he lied protect okay so some of the flights were obviously crucial. Though i don't want to just say that he was just wasting money. Some of the flights were crucial to go down cheese one. Well the sweet smell of cheese. Kurds from saz is one. Wisconsin now says quote in february two thousand sixteen walker had had state plane sent from madison to pick him up in milwaukee after getting a haircut and attending a personal event to fly him to a national rifle association conference.

Well we're going to start a couple of weeks with our budget adjustment bill. The first step is we're going to deal with collective bargaining for all public employee unions. Because you use divide and conquer that opens the door once we do that which is part. It's and when you watch the video. The camera is right there.

Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus
"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the government on lease and get it out of the way so that we can go back to work and and restore

"Why don't you make sure that you you find a way? The Monitor spaces like bathrooms in that so that everybody's not crowded in those areas and the good news is for people like him and many others for the grocery stores, the pharmacies other places that are deemed essential. They had overwhelmingly been able to operate safely because they've used safe and sound and reasonable standards, not only to protect their employs, but to protect their customers. To me when I went out is the best thing can do is make the case to help businesses. Particularly small businesses reopened again is layout ways that they can safely and responsibly open again. Get the government out of the way because in the end. The government's not going to reopen the economy. The market is if employs feel safe, and if customers ultimately feel safe, though come back if they won't if they don't, they won't. Jerry bought, and I were talking about this before the three o'clock hour I actually think it's good that the president, and even the coronavirus task force, or not giving briefings every day because I think it added undue pressure, I think it made the public feel that were even under greater threat. Because we were constantly getting updated instead of saying hey, let's use some commonsense. We'll help give guidelines to direct people on. We're not gonNA. Dictate at the government can't do this alone. We need to include everyone in these common sense solutions. Paul, you're right. It's GonNa take time to me. It's Kinda like when we were kids. If someone accidentally cut off the power when you're playing football baseball, and the not today, but the old lights take a while to fire back up. That's what the economy's going to be like. It's not gonNA. Flip a switch and they're gonNA turn on right away, but it's why all along I've been arguing literally for more than a month in my writings every Friday in the Washington Times that we needed one before the president. Did I said we need to have a task force reopening the America's economy because we can't just start worrying about that after we worry about the coronavirus we've got to be doing. You've got to walk and Chew Gum. one at the same time we do the other and we can do that. We're Americans. We can do that. We can do that here in Wisconsin. You can do it in Michigan and and I don't know about Illinois, but they can do it in Iowa, and even in Minnesota and we can do it across America We can do this, but but people need to understand why and we need to govern governor the way and there's another really really big. Big thing that we need to do the. We're going to have to talk about that after the next break, so don't leave I've got something that really quickly important. It's more important than even just what date any governor sets for the so-called time to lift the stay at home requirements. There's something even more important. The government needs to do to get the economy going but first we're GONNA. Take this quick break. You're on newstalk eleven thirty W I said. Scott Walker here on newstalk eleven thirty. Filling in for mark belling eight days a week. I said you know. We had groundhog day the last break. It's eight days a week now. It's a.

"The issue is former Illinois governor rod Blagojevich he was freed from prison after he was granted they commuted sends by president trump and yes yes yes yes I know this was not a presidential pardon he was commuted there is a difference pardon means basically you're absolved of all crimes you get to go Scot free that's a pardon whether it's done by a president or or governor etcetera being commuted means it's just changing the type of punishment you still guilty but your charge less for example in again this is not applied to Broadway bridge which is to just to be clear it's like if you were given the death penalty and the president commutes you're sentenced to a life sentence you still guilty is still in prison but the penalty was in essence reduced that was the case for Robert boy **** the former governor of Illinois was serving a fourteen year prison sentence for taking bribes back in two thousand nine to sell the Illinois Senate seat that was vacated by Barack Obama the blood going which is the governor Obama wins the presidency back in two thousand eight Senate seats open the steel line from Scott Walker when he became governor Robert go age it's basically just said Hey this seat is open for business my friends actually he didn't say that you don't he said I have the core here he basically said and I have to believe myself out I've got this thing and it's a bleep in golden ticket after all it is the Chicago way this is how politics is done in Illinois well he was caught and he was caught rabbit my goodness you thought OJ was guilty as sin you thought the evidence was overwhelming there I I I can't think of anything more cut and dry then look away which is guilt no one denies he was guilty but it was sentenced to fourteen years in prison spend behind bars since two thousand eleven until yesterday president trump basically we descends letting go Scot free
Awards Season: Oscar Nominations
"We have the golden globes recently today we get the critics choice awards tomorrow very early in the morning they will be announcing the academy award nominations so it's the awards season some times we can glean what will probably happen with the Academy Awards by what happens in the golden globes not always sometimes many times it's wall has been monitoring the critics choice awards and I think we should start there to see if maybe the critics choice awards are either going or falling in line with the golden globes or offering a different message if you will as far as what should be honored this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the
‘Skywalker’ Box-Office Draw Suffers From Lukewarm Reviews
"Who's a strong opening night for the new Star Wars movie the rise of Scott Walker brought in an estimated forty million dollars at the north American box office that's not as much as the two previous films in the trilogy made on their opening Thursday's reviews for rise of Scott Walker has been
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Review
"Star Wars the rise of sky Walker opens in theaters tomorrow the third and final film in the latest Star Wars trilogy the end of the road in so many ways for Star Wars especially for this storyline involving Luke Skywalker which all started with the first Star Wars movie back in nineteen seventy seven which I guess in terms of the Star Wars story is actually the fourth chapter and if you find that a little bit confusing you probably still have absorb some of the famous lines from the movies like use the force or do or do not there is no try or Luke I am your father which I know I know the line is actually no I am your father you can tell I'm sort of like walking a tight rope today because I feel like I have two of the greatest Star Wars fans in front of me right now but outside of that JJ Abrams is the director of the rise of sky Walker and just imagine that kind of pressure he's got the tough job of bringing it all in for a landing as I mentioned chasing Garber and Kathleen Newman remaining they went to a special preview screening of Star Wars yesterday before virtually anybody else they're here live in the studio dying to tell you all about it hello my friends Hey how's it going I feel like I said I don't have any good Star Wars greetings is there a good star was greeting hi yeah Jason is wearing a full tee shirts and has the charger beings Baba bobble head well the characters where's your yak give anything Kathleen you know and it's all in my heart something deep down yeah the forces in me so let's talk about this you get a chance to go to the press screening for the new Star Wars yesterday you guys go to these things all the time dozens even a week Jason where even the jaded film critics of Toronto a little bit excited to see Star Wars I mean look everybody's little **** it only comes of this but I think this is actually pretty good to go into this film with a certain level of trepidation I think that if we go in sort of too excited him to sort of objectivity we should be open to its terms I think that a lot of the film critics don't Nestle do that all the time but I think that most people when I'm with the appropriate level of a mix of objectivity in slate excitement of their there for an event Kevin were you excited I was very excited I got there a little bit later than Jason and I felt a little bit of the excitement but once the movie started it was dead silent like this is not a spoiler but when Landau courtesy and gets on screen for the first time Billy Dee Williams I lost my mind and everyone else is like silent which is what it's about which is a huge advantage I mean that like obviously leasing again with public and this is very much I mean it's like man to man the phones at Taft if you see them press for him to kind of a miserable experience you just have to get used to that but a film like this if you're ever going to see this movie theater on the big screen the because you can with an audience to get in the indictment so let's do it I can tell you I can hear you yelling your radio right now Jason I'll start with you Star Wars the rise of sky Walker how was fine suddenly I called the crime you went on Twitter for those over and it look let's let's be one hundred percent clear this is kind of the second and a half ending we've had we had returned the jet I which ended everything and we had episode three which was supposed to end everything Lucas's and then kind of the last job I had a great ending it's like the work done that of those you should go see it I'm not going to worry about it was the last movie that the the universe was going to be bigger and that we weren't going to be focused on the small story and then within us there was the whole notion that the myth of Scott Walker would continue as you see the kids playing with action figure and the kid who picks up the broom with a force you realize that this is not something that's patcher or matrilineal that is going to be bigger than this one little family we did have a question that comes by way remember these characters you really left we're gonna bring those back and focus entirely on that I'll make the story in some ways smaller so it's galactic in scope and yet smaller narrative scope and that is it's doing what it's supposed to do he was hired to do a job which the cap off this saga and it does it and it's fine but that makes it a little bit less interesting a commitment let's get into that in a second Jason says fine Kathleen I mean I think shockingly Jason I kind of agree here I'm I liked it I was very entertained I had a good time even with the jaded critics who were not like matching my energy level I agree that it's not great there is a fine as to what I do think that there's there's a little bit of like a course correction and that they seem to be doing with the last chat I so yeah he JJ made the world a little smaller and really abandon some of the really interesting stuff that Ryan Johnson had set up in the last chat I which is frustrating and makes it not a great movie I think he was trying to please everybody and trying to please those fans that were so upset at the last I and in doing that the narrative suffered and it's also just trying to be a lot try to be a lot of things to a lot of people and then I think it is in any of those things to anybody for example are two foot to a deep in the weeds and lord knows I cut but the way the blade of grass scene six so when I saw the fact that was not mentioned I'm a little upset and the deal is that let people think that this was structured that they knew exactly we're gonna beat I mean they always talk about Lucas having these twelve movie idea sort of written out for some of these are complete stripped away from looks as vision bat that goes without saying but what happened was JJ wrote the the force awakens as an empty are there was no ending there's going to jail just fantastic to look at openings right everybody knows that what has what he's really good at is setting the stage not traded endings hi everyone also knows self admittedly I mean he got in all those interviews actually talks about how this was going to be real tons of room because then he never was supposed to direct the film right other directions where involved actually like a so the deal is that when he wrote the first film they didn't know where it was going to go and it was one of those hand off it's like I'm going to set up the stage hand it off to you and you're going to finish this the second verse of the song that's what Ryan Johnson does run Johnson took all these ingredients and did something for many of us super interesting in super a complex and did essentially ministry talked about what is it to be found the end of of the force awakens is ray handing a lightsaber Luke Skywalker legally saying let's go and the opening shot of last chat I is illuminated at one yeah the last film the film after that episode eight is Luke Skywalker take fully superimposed over shoulder in other words I've been handing off the story to you and Ryan's first thing he does like let's not worry about this story that's not the interesting thing the interesting thing is getting into the nature the metaphysics of the deeper stuff but the force this film goes okay I can't remember the last thing you said okay we're not going to worry as much about this stuff remember these characters you're like let's get him together with all gonna be the same ship they're all gonna gonna ventures together but I want to point out the Kathy when you say that JJ Abrams who has had the incredibly unenviable task of trying to finish Star Wars trying to and Star Wars I I want to really highlight there that is an unenviable task it's even if you're not great even if you're amazing endings try ending the greatest film franchise in history so how does it do Kathleen as an ending to the Star Wars story that we now I mean I thought it was satisfying it's an it's an ending and it answers a lot of questions and as we know Los fans I feel you like we know that change is not answering questions and doing and ray yam asset is flying in and I think that this is just whether you like this ending and the answers that they give you but they give you answers and they give you a very definitive ending and you know some people already have set hi stag JJ Abrams is over party was trending on Twitter yeah it's I mean no one's gonna be happy about anything but I think that he did a good enough job I was entertained and it is it like a nice wrapped up and is it is no one going to be happy with this look at there's always gonna be people upset about this because we care right through well for lots and lots of reasons to ours is pretty fundamental to popular culture and the people have a vested interest and they have in a typical fan communities not everybody but a very vocal minority believes they have ownership over these characters and when they want things to go at a certain way this feeling as for this film actually goes towards a certain direction of giving them what they want and then they end up not wanting what they will think that they wanted that's one thing but I will say that these two fundamental things about changing his his course one lens flares you dialed the heck down with one foot above is one thing I'm like okay I I love that you love letters was god bless you but there's a big thing is he's a red herring you talk about lost as he's a guy who like put a shark and have a logo on a shark and they only got this has to mean something smoke monster has to mean something that's just his step he's trying to trick you a little bit and this film would be much more interesting of those red herrings were not red herrings but actually things that happened so what happens is he consistently in this film gives you something and it's one of those moments the other two phones have moms like oh my god you can do that all my god you can shoot a laser blast haven't hang in the air that's kind of cool all my god you can take a ship and light speed through another ship I never thought you could do that and this film every moment but there was like oh my god that's don't know let's start back that isn't what you think it was ha ha ha I'd something I went I was gonna say second I was going to say that I thought that was but it was it was actually the opposite of this but it makes me really excited to watch it to figure out what the red hearings are and and or not yeah that's not as well as a good teams but I will say that some of those those on inspiring moments that you felt like we're missing I felt them I felt like I was a kid again watching some of this these action sequences and some of that the lights ever seen her so beautiful and big and yeah will transfer to transport you back to your child because I was going to ask if we what we talked a little bit I should stress to set this up by the way I'm I'm speaking which is a corporate Cathy Newman remaining ever talk about the new Star Wars movie rise of Scott Walker what to do right I think the cast is so strong and I think that Jason alluded to it but putting them together like you've got Oscar Isaac daisy Ridley and John by a guy as fan PO and ray and they're together for most of the film and that is a

"scott walker" Discussed on Bigmouth
"Compilation and Philippe in sort of the career, which is now as you say the obscures described as different off into art at beta bit becalmed hadn't that the wool Kabila's pizza vows. Yeah. He I think he was regarded as a little bit of a relic. And then when he did reappear was with these extremely weird. I think we is good word records. But I don't actually think there was anything necessarily peculiar about his behavior. I think it was actually kind of Admiral I mean, obviously, he could have spent he's entire life pasta certain point being incredibly famous and being on TV and the radio all the time. But just decided he couldn't be bothered with. It's this. In in not not comparing the V two feats of making some mildly successful records and walking on the moon. But in that way, I I've always thought probably the most famous most impressive famous person. I can think of is Neil Armstrong who could've spent his entire life from nineteen sixty nine onwards being the most famous person in the world. And yet you wouldn't have known him if he'd sat next to him on the train judge in Aaliyah on Scott Walker. I didn't care about successful sales. And that really isn't what he lived for. And I think it's interesting comparing into a forget the Fraser us early. But some people call them the Stanley Kubrick of music, which I think is interesting I think he had only had great looks huge following sign on those wonderful pops with the Walker brothers. And then I think the problem in my perception anyway that started when he started writing songs for them. And I think he felt that the pressure of having to deliver at that point and went solo in his his solo material. He completely changed musical Solomon. I would compare him later pups bit to shock Brel. But a fantastic innovator. He changed John Simmons. I had a wonderful story about him the other night. I was asking Brian Eno. What he thought about Scott Walker, and he said that he felt he was one of the most influential musicians of his generation, I said, can you give me an example, sit up -solutely? He said I played night flight today Bowie when we lived together in Berlin. And he said, it was the song the electrician, and ultimately heard that song his voice changed. What do you need is voice changes? Suddenly it was much more mature. And he's an if you listened to the election, and you look at that sort of time sphere. And and look at Bowie in his work. You'll see that there is a definite maturing. A deepening of the voice, and he puts up -solutely down to too Scott. Walker the lyrics of Scott walk collected last year in a in a book on. Aspect to this not quite so much the kind of illusions to as pound that even even Ted Hughes the way that much as would use sound in late securities sound kind of brick lodge. He's lyrics intensely worked and really take a lot of work from the lessons point of view as well as if he's trying to break out of Rockin. Invent something new that had not previously existed. Always kind of changing Jonathan making making the listener think which I think is a wonderful thing. It's not, you know, it's by no definition, easy listening. Sean, you're fun. Did you ever go there on the full on art stuff? He wouldn't be surprised. No, the phone out stuff sister life just going around into into the playlist every single day. I like that as we're saying, it was the fact that he didn't seem to care for one week all popularity which is credibly rare. He wanted to do what he wanted to do and he was obviously bored by traditional verse chorus. I course and went to to make something sonically much more interesting radio full this week described him as having mental health problems corroborated that he's saying he say, no the most people because he went to needed what he wanted. I thought that was incredible. I think that comes from the fact that it really John's with our conceptions to quite fundamental level of what people are supposed to.

Foxconn reconsidering plans for Wisconsin touted by Trump and then-Gov. Scott Walker
Ex-Wisconsin GOP governor calls on Walker to reject measures curbing Dems' power
"Governor elect Tony eaters is making his pitch to governor Walker to veto a Bill package that curves the powers of governor and attorney general I communicated with governor Walker over the telephone noncommittal appearing on ABC's, meet the press, incoming Wisconsin governor, Tony isn't encouraged governor walkable veto the legislation mistake, but we'll continue working to get the people Wisconsin to convince Scott Walker to think about his legacy and make sure that he tells us language Walker taking the Twitter unleashing nearly two dozen tweets over the weekend in
Wisconsin gov.-elect won't rule out suing over bills that would limit power
"Has happened before in many a legislature Democrats. In fact, I've done this in the past two Republican governors in lane duck sessions and other states joining me now from the state capital of Madison, Wisconsin, incoming democratic governor Tony got elect Devers. Welcome to meet the presser. Running check. How are you today? I'm okay. Let me start with this. You had said you were going to personally lobby governor Scott Walker the outgoing governor whom you defeated to veto this legislation. How those talks gone have you met with them. I communicated with governor Walker over the telephone a few days ago and laid out my physician that vetoing the legislation was going to be an important thing. Not only for you to make sure that our our what happened last November the vote of the people Wisconsin is actually upheld. And we're putting people in front of politics, but also just bad legislation. And I made that made that pitch and was noncommittal, I know publicly he's said another arenas savvy plans to sign most or all of it. So I'm not particular courage to at this point in time. But it's it's around Scott Walker's legacy. He he has the opportunity to change this and actually validate the will of the people that voted on November six did you negotiate with them? Did you say, you know, what look I know x is really important to you. I get that. But what's with y and z here was there. A why did you go to? And say, look, I I really think this part is just crazy please veto that if you want to keep this. I get it. No, I I talked about a few areas that are really important that actually Republican business leaders have talked about that that would take away power imply implicate and make make economic development much more difficult in the state of Wisconsin. But the entire thing is a mess. It's a hot mess. I believe that. He should be towed. The entire package impact at least three or four the pieces that are in there. Now, he has vetoed previously. And so it makes no sense to me. He's he's been a longtime public servant. And and I and he he he has a legacy here. So we're hopeful that he will veto the whole thing. I'm curious after you were elected and quickly. We heard word that the Republican speaker and the Republican majority leader in the legislature. There were considering these bills. Did you reach out to them personally before the bills started going? And if you did what was that conversation like? Well, I I met with Robert Vaas this speaker much before those words that rumor came down the pike. I haven't had a chance to talk immediate was last minute is one of these. Here's a rumor. And here's here's the bills that have been worked on for several months. But know, Scott, you didn't won this election, which got Walker at one this election. We wouldn't be sitting here talking to you today. Is there any party, you know, one of the things that the speaker said he goes, well and hindsight, maybe we gave the governor too much power take the partisan hat off a minute. All right. I know that that perhaps many people read that comet tongue in cheek. But do you believe he's right? Well, there are things in that Bill that really had nothing to do with giving Scott Walker anything. So I don't agree with that. We have balanced power in the state of Wisconsin legislature in both sides are Republican. I'm a democrat. The attorney general's have democrat. No, I view this as completely different than the, Robin. Boy, you said, and that is that we are trying to invalidate the of the people people Wisconsin voted for because they know that I was for good schools and good transportation system and good healthcare. They didn't they didn't. They didn't elect me to fight over. Administrative powers in the state of Wisconsin vis-a-vis, the Republican majority. Now, I think this this this gets us off to bad start. I I think it's a mistake. But we we'll continue working to get the people Wisconsin to convince Scott Walker to think about his legacy and make sure that he vetos language democratic congresswoman Glenmore said the following the legislatures who injured near this coup their actions amount to a smash and grab hijacking of the voters. Will you think coups the right word here? Well, that's that's always seems seems strong. But the fact of the matter is. As I just said if Walker had won this election, and he did not I did we wouldn't be sitting here. Talking about this today. We wouldn't we wouldn't be talking. It's Scott Walker wouldn't be sitting here talking about. Jeez. They're they're trying to they're trying to balance the power here. So no, I think is directly related to the to a win by a democrat in that be me. And we need we need to have this. We need to have this vetoed. One of their rationale has been well governor like abras margins all came from two cities, Madison and Milwaukee. We have to represent the rest of the state. What do you say to that charge? And more importantly, you want a very narrow election. How do you? How do you reach across this divided state at this point. Like, it would have been a lot easier without this legislation. I'll tell you that I have reached my present job is state superintendent that's a statewide elected position. And I've reached across island all all all numbers of issue. So that's part of my DNA. I'm an educator. So I I always try to find common ground, and I'll continue to do that going forward. This just makes it more difficult. But I wanted me election anyway, you slice it. I want me election and actually narrowed some of the. The votes out state, and I've won lots of those counties out state in the past. I governor I will be the governor of the state. It was represent doesn't veto this legislation. Do you plan to sue you really think you have standards? All all all issues are on the table. I I'm not making any promises one way or the other. But we're looking at all issues all options at the table. I need to stand up for the people Wisconsin. There's two point six million people that voted in this last election, and they expect me to do that. So I'm going to we're going to pursue this governor elect, Tony abors democrat from Wisconsin. Thanks for coming on sharing your views. Good luck. When you take when he actually takes us. All right. When we come back. The one issue
Wisconsin Democrats look at legal options on lame-duck bills
"In order to ram through a series of measures that that basically decapitate the executive branch and give the legislature itself powered over an enormous number of things, whether it's agencies, whether it's making the attorney general come to the legislature, and specifically to a committee with a Republican dominated committee within the legislature. To get permission to pursue lawsuits. Whether it's settlement money potentially in in lawsuits, that's all controlled by the legislature now and then limiting early voting which is very significant because Wisconsin had record turnout in two thousand eighteen and because of early voting which the legislature had tried to cut off and then a federal judge intervened and said, no it's unconstitutional. There were enormous numbers. Wisconsin citizens who voted early and the legislature is now in both houses have passed this that they need to get together on it. But they have limited early voting to two weeks. So instead of six weeks as it was here in Dane county, where we had presidential level turn out. They're going to have two weeks. Again. It's just an effort to suppress the will of the people and to concentrate power in the state legislature. Well in terms of the limits on the governor's appointment powers. Could you get some? Go into some of the specifics of what is actually happening with some of these agencies some of them, they're actually packing with more members that the legislation would have say over. Yes. So for example, the Wisconsin economic Development Corporation, which has replaced the Commerce Department under governor Scott Walker. It's a scandal. Played agency that hands out gifts to corporations that promise to create jobs. The legislature has taken away the governor's power to appoint the head of that agency. They're still working this out. It's still needs to be signed by Scott Walker. But this is where they're going. And there was debate on it as they walked into the studio, they they plan to pack the board so that until September. And this is the recent redo this as a four o'clock this morning, they plan to pack the board with Republican chosen members. So that the governor can appoint the head of the board anymore and the Republican legislature controls the makeup of the board after September. They say it will be balanced there'll be chosen by legislators from the Democratic Party and the Republican party. But they are what they are fundamentally doing is undoing Tony Everts campaign promise to get rid of this agency altogether because it is. Handed out tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money to corporations that have failed to create jobs. I was Foxconn as well. The ex-con Foxconn, which is a big. Yeah. It's a big company that our state has given an enormous amount of subsidy money to and really is was a major issue in the campaign because it's a gigantic subsidy for this corporation that is not creating a lot of jobs and hiring people actually from Illinois. To make big split screens. I will probably be obsolete shortly. There are a number of corporations that have received tens of millions of dollars from the state of Wisconsin. In this Bill that the legislature is pushing through right now, they remove the requirement that those corporations even demonstrate that they're creating jobs that was a requirement that they were failing to meet, and it's the reason that the public is. So so up in arms against this Wisconsin, Economic Development Board, it's going to continue to exist. The Republicans are going to pack the board. And now they're gonna take away the requirement that the corporations they give money to taxpayer money to even show that they're doing anything in exchange for that money, Foxconn Welby be the reason why the governor of Wisconsin stop Scott Walker lost. I mean, the touting of Foxconn coming to Wisconsin.
