"17 Todd Jeffries and on prior truth, so Mayor Steve Adler is eager to get the police cadet class up and running by March. He's amazing, Yeah, look at what he's doing. Absolutely look, look at the change he's creating. Right. This has got to be motivated by a lot of different things here. This has got to be motivated by number one. Uh, he's trying to make up for this incredible blunder that I think is just destroyed at least up for this week, his credibility with this combo triple lying about his Kabo trip. And also the fact that our crime levels have gone up there. There's good, solid data to show that the murder rate has gone up. The crime level has gone up, and this kind of makes him look like he's kind of coming to the rescue, doesn't it? Well, the sudden I'll be. I'll be honest. I think what it is, is it's Ah, incredible political manipulation it is. Let me explain, I mean, sure, sure. The radical left is what created this City Council. The radical left or they're the ones that throw a bottle. Was in bricks and things like that at police. They're the ones that protest at City Hall. They're the ones that made the demands that Chris Harris is of the world. You know that that group those folks are going to start to get pissed. I think the mayor was playing them just to get elected, and now he's going to try to get the cadet class going again. Well, First of all, Mayor Steve Adler will say anything to anybody to get any support. He's his compass is very, very fluid. And then he blows with the wind. Let me tell you here's more on this story. More than one occasion this week, Mayor Steve Others expressed an interest in a new connect class when he says, We need to be deeply diverse, allowing new officers to serve his quote. Cultural change. Agents help us with what we're doing to make. Austin is safe city and even safer city on the topic of safety. It was revealed this week murders of climb by 54%. This year, and many officers agree more cops are needed on the topic of diversity. The most recent cadet class that was canceled this year had for the first time ever. A majority minority, meaning 51% from non white backgrounds. Patrick Osborne, NewsRadio, Kale, Be Jack, right, There you go. That's the story in the making. Most people do get in law enforcement to be cultural change agents. There's no doubt about it. That is the goal. That's that's why they were the batch. He's got to use that language because that's the kind of language the left understands. He's got to placate to those that put him in on fighting crime to to the left. Sounds like something horrible sound. It sounds violent, and it sounds a messy absolutely jump in here. Guns and blood and 51283605 90. What were you gonna say? You should break You had a lot to say what I think there is also an aspect of his. We talked about, you know, like the homeless situation we get. The problem's gotta get a lot worse before it gets better. Uh, I think this is an example of him trying to appear like he's coming to the rescue. Here. We're gonna We're gonna start putting more money into the the A. P D. We're gonna have this cadet class coming up, and it kind of maybe gives the illusion of boy he's doing the right thing and he's on it. He's you know, he's a good guy against a good guy again. So I think he's doing the right thing. I think there is some change that didn't need to happen in, you know certain aspects of law enforcement with a PD. Yeah, absolutely. Certainly Say two ladies still got to go. But certainly de funding and canceling a cadet class was not the answer. And is this him realizing the error of his ways? Or is this realizing I got to do some stuff to make up for some some some serious damage that I've done to myself in my credibility recently. I'm sure that's it. That's an element that Z component to this could be. Yeah. 7 20. If this week's IPO's were a music festival door dash would be the opener that rocked so hard that everyone started mashing in the first day of trading shares shot up 86% giving it a market. Cap of $72 billion. And you. Have you ever used your dad? Okay, man, they do a good job. They do a good job. I mean, there are others out there that do good job is well on Dhere is the story of Airbnb. They're on the way. Yeah, we take care of baby for granted. But there is there was one time not too long ago. When booking a stay in a random person's house in northern Finland was considered odd behavior. Hey, I'm going to read a stranger's house for a weekend, people would think what you're doing what Well, yeah, now it's common. No, no. Yeah, the startup founded in San Francisco in 2000 and completely upended the hotel industry and fundamentally changed the way people travel by tapping into our desires from local An authentic experiences. The company had a roller coaster year and is the Corona virus spread across the globe Bookings plummeted. 72% in April. The company cut quarter, you know, cut its workforce that, according to their CEO, and travel was just not happening on B was right. So they were able to quickly shift. People didn't didn't stop traveling. They just started traveling differently. They flock to mountain towns rule areas over the summer. Driving in surprise profit for Airbnb in Q three and its prices. It shares its $68 a pop with evaluation of 47 billion. They were able to quickly shift into long term rentals for people that need to work from home. They were quickly able to change their model to survive in That really, uh well that the ability to change has really interested a lot of investors out there, Right? Right. Right. Just because you survived the travel industry's worst downturn ever doesn't mean you can take a nap. As a public company.

This is the worst political scandal in Russian collusion, hopes they tried to steal the election and tried to destroy the presidency. But they failed. If this succeeds, this will be a bigger scandal.

I'm doing Well. Thank you. Good morning. How are you? Good morning. I'm doing great. You just heard. Robert Woods News update. It's now coming into focus. Mayor Steve Adler says he and the City Council are thinking about a 35 day total shutdown of the Austin economy. I'm guessing since yesterday when they went behind closed doors. This is what they came up with how and when will they push that? I don't think we know just yet, but you need to know that that's exactly what they're thinking. And and then even after the 35 days what they're what that looks like after coming out of 35 days of hibernation, what we will see and Mayor Adler on Facebook last night said It worked very well in late March and April, and it will work again in late June and July. My question to that is is I will not say that us doing the stay at home order did not help When we didn't know anything about this. I think it probably did help. I do think the state home went too long. But if we go there scenario that We do this and then we re emerge again and we and we start toe work again, and we see that spiking cases again. Is that an automatic? Okay, It's another 35 days. Friends who go back to hibernate, and then we re emerge again. Or is this going to be an ongoing cycle? Because it's not gonna work. No, it's not. That's the sledgehammer approach, and there's another side to it. It inflicts massive damage on the economy, which equates to damage on lives. There's no other way to look at it. This was the mayor at your last night on Facebook, giving his view of what things will be like a TTE the end of a 35 days shutdown. Whenever that is. This was the mayor last night. We're going to come out after 35 days. Everybody's got to wear the facemasks, whether around other people, everybody's going to social distance. Nobody's going to go out when they're saying everybody is getting tested. Was he being facetious.

"Back on this week in Texas Austin mayor Steve Adler was among several Texas leaders who attended the US conference of mayors in Washington I ask mayor Adler if there's counterparts look to pick his brain regarding the gross boom Austin has seen here we do have a lot of questions from from from other cities that are looking at what's happening in Austin and quite frankly what's happening in Texas and and try to figure out how they can take a little of that back home with them but our sins of the fastest growing large metropolitan area in the country has been for each of the last eight years so a lot of folks who are what I want to come in and kind of touch that but you know there are a lot of things that we're learning from from from other cities where were their eggs excelling in ways that that that we're not really these you come here they're ours meetings after meetings after meetings are really specific problems and challenges that cities dealing with them and all mayors are sharing stuff but I'll tell you everyone's excited the United States conference of mayors annual meeting is coming to Austin Texas dispute and I think that mayors across the country really started to become a doctor I know the homeless issue in the last year has been a big one in Austin is there anything you can learn from maybe some of the other big city mayors that you can take back to your city to sort of help but at a solution when it comes to that there's there's a lot for us to to see and learn about homelessness here it take back to Austin you know one of the things that we learned is that the challenges in a lot of cities are much greater than what we're facing here in Austin the one of the things that we learned is that if we don't step up earlier in the process which we have the ability to do it are doing it in the house and if we don't step up then the the challenge will get bigger and greater and harder to deal with so we lead learn what el a Portland and San Francisco and Seattle did or didn't do that we want to make sure we do differently so that we don't don't at the same place and then there are other cities that are coming to to **** and see how successful we were getting into affected zero homelessness for veterans getting half of the children experiencing homelessness offers streets last year they're coming to us and asking us for further best practices for what we're doing to be able to achieve that so this is this is this challenge with home with this is something that is being faced by Friday's so many cities across the country every city has dealing with rising housing prices dealing with this issue into Friday housing prices is challenge across the country homelessness is as is as well that's Austin mayor Steve Adler and this week in Texas continues this she.

"My home town the phrase keep Austin weird popularized on T. shirts and bumper stickers symbolize the funky historical offbeat culture of the people in business here in Texas in the capital city but over the past several months an ordinance approved by the Austin city council defended by mayor Steve Adler has produced tent cities the homeless and a surge in violent crimes than a great period that's how the opinion piece begins from congressman ship Roy in Texas part of his district includes Austin the mayor says he hasn't read it yet he's not even paying attention to it I'm sure but cave you caught up with the mayor to ask you about some of these homeless issues and the mayor says congressman Jim Breuer should support the homeless active twenty nineteen I think it would be really important for Congress to pass HR eighteen fifty six because that is the bill in front of Congress where we're asking Congress to help cities across the country to actually deal with the challenge of of homelessness sure what other words when we translate to the mayor and the city council the gonna set back there in the backseat on this issue there the backseat on this issue as police chief Brian manly talks about an increase in violent crime yep you heard the story there red marks news this opinion piece in the fox dot com from congressman chip Roy he goes on to say news from California but the state's housing problem provides clear evidence that ongoing homes to camp in the open it creates a public health and safety crisis poor sanitation for homeless individuals living on the streets led to an outbreak of hepatitis a in twenty seventeen that grow to include committees all up and down the state of California and chip was concerned that it's going to happen here he says it's one of the reasons that so many Californians have so I've been seeking refuge here in the state of Texas is yeah jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety chip Reid goes on is you know congressman chip Roy his every again Kluge much of downtown Austin he says he has seen and heard the impact of the homeless problem from local business owners have told him about their increase security needs to finding needles in the parking lots these developments not only in danger the local committee but also have an impact on visitors the perception of the city threatening the you know the vitality of the city your important tourism dollars here in Austin there's no doubt about it now I mean this is the level it's getting not only our our governor but now conversely chip roared going to these links this is putting our homeless issue on the national stage here it's there Austin it's not coming where there Austin does have that reputation now and there is no doubt it is going to hurt us in ways that we haven't even anticipated generally goes on to say the changes in Austin came at the same time that the downtown area experienced an eighteen percent increase in violent crime during the first ten months of twenty nineteen yeah the tragic incidents of last week what a homeless man fatally stabbed to individuals in a restaurant in some prickly died from his injuries speaking to the trauma the homeless problems because for Austin's residents including homeless themselves chip Reid goes on to say in response to the murders last week the surgeon by that crime in downtown Austin governor Abbott has directed the DPS to begin some new patrols around the area I've lived in Austin Texas my entire life I've never lived anywhere but Austin Texas and it is a city that I have been proud of for so many years I am seeing things in the city now that don't don't resemble anything like I have seen before nothing nothing there's the what what I'm saying now is nothing like what I grew up in and it it it really is ripping my life for a can heart out township road goes on to say more broadly Austin must do a better job of issuing housing affordability SR one of the nation's fastest growing city housing stock must grow to accommodate our you know our population otherwise a shortage of houses would push prices and ranch ever upward making any solutions the homeless problems temporary and short lived anti growth zoning restrictions and crushing tax rates do not help solve the problem as we have seen in recent weeks have only created more problems by increasing the homeless popular city is being ruined are we have a mayor we have a city council right now that is ruining white when you want it back off I'm sorry man I say anything well I'm I'm if I didn't say a word if I'm speaking too loudly I'm sorry but this is a very emotional thing for me if somebody that is lived here and you have a city government that is doing everything they can to ruin this city it tends to affect me just a little bit I I I kind of have a route to in this city now as such employee says is a proud Texan who once enjoyed living downtown I know our city can come together and solve the problem the residents of Austin deserved to walk the streets in safety and peace and the homeless themselves deserve better than than the promise of attention in a park he goes on to say working together can prevent California's homeless and housing crisis for migrating to the capital city you know it's what it's what greets it's what greets visitors coming to Austin from the airport when they come in on been white and that's fit to be here he there there are thousands of times a day where people are coming in from the airport on the Ben white and what did they see they see trash they see tense they see things that they should not have to see all right now they see a bunch of construction over there minutes a mass of one eighty three area near the airport maybe bill there lately of course but I yeah it is that that's horrible that they're greeted with that in that what don't worry it'll get worse you'll see trashing you'll see that you know people sleeping on the side of the road welcome come see us robe and real quick in south Austin Ruben what's on your mind how long are great so long listen and so the people I'm also started blowing out it's still going to continue on for years to come no doubt and Tony and telling people start moaning the right way and taking a right wing nothing's ever going to change that's a good point this city council one with the mandates overwhelming majority support from the voters of Austin Texas if you think about it if you live downtown you voted for the city council you kind of deserve which again Todd and John
