"It is The Dennis Prager Show for Thursday, August 24th, debate night, the day after Mark Davis filling in from Texas, taking your calls, mixing your thoughts and mine. So, all right. I mentioned on my show this morning locally, and I'll mention it to... And I may have already touched on it here. So many debate reactions are going to be filtered through what you think of everybody, which is fine. And I'm not immune to that. I try to resist it. And I hope I'm a worthy tour guide through this because I love Trump. Do I know that he's our best shot versus Biden? Nope. I respect DeSantis. Is the reality going to live up to the hype? I don't know. I'm impressed by Vivek. I got hesitations about Vivek. I'm just paying attention. I'm letting the game come to me. For many of you who have totally made up your mind, which you're completely entitled to do, if you just love Trump, then for many of you, DeSantis is a bum and the last lady, God bless her, Vivek is unqualified. Let me give you a definition of qualified. Qualified is a weird word. First of all, the constitution makes it clear. You got to be 35 natural born American citizen. That's about it. But I know that conversationally we say qualified and we mean that you seem to have a body of experience in your past, in your brain, in your heart. You seem to have a life that lends itself to being president of the United States. But if you come after Vivek and say, well, he doesn't have foreign policy experience. How much foreign policy experience did Trump have? And he was great on foreign policy. Literally, I don't know how many of you agree with me on this. I don't know how much I care about experience anymore at all. Because there are people with loads of experience who are terrible. One of them is president of the United States right now. And there are plenty of people who have very little experience, none in elected office, who are awesome. Trump, the prime example. Talk about learning, talk about on the job learning. He certainly did it. Now, Vivek being everything he does. Kurt is a take no prisoners conservative. He is an admitted DeSantis fan, a great respecter of and fan of everything Trump did. But it's his belief that the only way to get those policies back, it ain't Trump, it's DeSantis. And so that's where his heart lies. But he gave me a quote about Vivek that I probably have cited it 15 times since. He said, we just can't have a commander in chief who first heard Nirvana on a classic rock station. I love that so much. And I don't wanna be ageist. And I don't wanna be the old coot in my yard, shaking my fist at a cloud, telling the kids to get out of my yard. I'm 65. I like to think I'm a youthful 65, so do we all. But it's not like Vivek is 20, he's 38. But we ain't growing 38 year olds. We ain't growing 19 year olds like we used to, or folks who are double that age. See, more math. So it's not like I think he's gonna wig out and do weird millennial things. But maybe I'm looking for a certain seasoning, a certain measured approach that he just doesn't have yet, which is not harsh criticism because I think the guy is truly remarkable. Here's a little chunk of him from last night. See what I mean, roll it. This primary is this. Do you want a super PAC puppet or do you want a patriot who speaks the truth? Do you want incremental reform, which is what you're hearing about, or do you want revolution? And I stand on the side of the American revolution. We're gonna take control. See, this is the energy he brings. And that was actually a moment where he said, he's kind of funny. He says, 90% of the stuff he says is awesome. Okay, 80% is awesome. 15% is really great and 5% was dumb. I'm the only candidate up here who's not bought and paid for. What kind of a weird slap was that? But the guy is great on TV. He's very telegenic, he's very smart, he's very sharp. His 10 truths, there are two genders, God is real. The constitution is the greatest guarantor of freedom in world history. We have three branches of government, not four, which is, I guess, a slap at the media and the other six. They're all great. He's great in a bunch of ways. Does he need to be the nominee? I don't know. Does he need to be the running mate? I don't know, especially if it's Trump. And listen, Trump's gonna outlive all of us. He'll be 120 eating a cheeseburger and going, told you. But if that is not in the cards, Vivek, a heartbeat away from the presidency? He has a future, as a friend of mine has often said, he has a future. I don't know when that future is. He certainly has a future in this race. I think he'll be certainly one of the last three or four standing. Let me hit some more calls here and then we'll talk a little bit about some of the people that are in Detroit. Mike, hey, Mark Davis says, sitting in for Dennis, how are you doing? You know, these debates are fine, but people need to remember that part of the democratic strategy is always divide and conquer. And, you know, it's almost like what is there to debate? You know, we're watching the Democratic Party dismantle and destroy our republic, you know, before our very eyes, you know, the political and violence that they've inflicted on this country is just unprecedented. And you get with the political corruption, you can start with the bedwetting narrative to the military occupation. You know, people need to remember this, the military occupation under a false narrative, under false pretenses by the Democratic Party. As a former officer, I can tell you 99% of the office of Carr would have refused that order as illegal. What order are you talking about? The order that Pelosi gave to Milley to occupy our nation's capital. But aside from that- Hey, Mike, can I be really frank and speak with love? I'm wide open about all kinds of things, but we're kind of doing something here. And these are platitudes. They're good, high quality platitudes, but not really what I'm doing. So then, yeah, yeah, yeah. So as you're listening to a show and if it seems to be doing something that seems, if somebody says, hey, Constitution to apple pie recipes, call me, that's great. But here's something, a suggestion with love. If there's kind of something we're doing here and you got six index cards in front of you, sit tight with them and wait for another day, okay? And I say that with a huge amount of love. All right, 1-8 Prager 776, 1-8 Prager 776, let's do as follows. When we come back, more of your calls, focus people, focus. And by the way, there are a hundred different things you can say about the debate, about the race, about our country, about Trump and Tucker. I'm all about that. So we'll be back in just a moment on the Dennis Prager Show. Always a good idea. Mark Davis in for Dennis. Artie, we are in West LA. Steve, Mark Davis in for Dennis. How are you, sir? Oh, good, Mark. Two things that stuck to me last night. We have these lying activists at ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, PBS, and others, of course, CNN, that allow the abortion topic to destroy conservative America. We need them to start sticking mics in front of the left wing Congress people and senators and say, when should abortion be not allowed? What are your limits? Exactly. The second thing I have to say is Asa Hutchinson calling Jan 6 an insurrection is a disgrace. He needs to get the F out of this race. He's a disgrace to the Republican Party. Voters will take care of that very soon. I know. How do you overthrow the biggest government in the world without any weapons? It wasn't insurrection. He's horrible. And the marketplace will take care of him. The thing is, what do we got to wait for? Iowa, New Hampshire? And listen, I would say this about some people who I don't hold in that high regard like Asa Hutchinson, people who I do hold in pretty high regard like Doug Burgum, somebody who I used to hold in high regard before he became a Trump hate monger, Will Hurd. But I would ask of all three guys, why are you running? What exactly are you thinking? Is this an ego trip? Is it a vanity project? And I'm going to make a point here because there's somebody else who's at about 1% in the polls. There's a strong reason for him to be running. His name is Larry Elder. And it's not just because he's a talk show guy, not just he's my friend and my former colleague. It's because Larry has things to say that nobody else would have said on that stage list. There's a reason for him to be running. There's a narrative that only he can tell. There's something truly unique about him. And the RNC screwed him and that's not good. And I wish him well in his action against the RNC and through the FEC. I hope that works out. All right, Mark Davis in for Dennis. Stick around. We got one hour down, two to go. All kinds of things happening. Grab a line at 18 Prager 776. We'll be right with you. Portions of the show. Listeners often write me, Dennis, I haven't felt the same since having COVID or I have felt off ever since I was vaccinated. What can I do? The issue is spike protein, the toxic substance that attaches to your cells to allow mRNA to enter. Many of us have collected excess spike protein over the past few years, putting constant stress on our immune system and causing compounding symptoms. Fortunately, over the counter solutions are here. People I trust, Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Harvey Risch at the wellness company formulated a spike support formula combining scientifically researched ingredients. One of them being NATO kinase, an enzyme researched to dissolve spike protein. Another is dandelion root extract, which is being studied for its ability to block spike protein from binding to your cells.

"Search for a killer continues in burian a man was shot dead Sunday Night on first avenue south. This property belongs to the 76 gas station here, customers were inside at the time they heard those shots and some saw the suspect take off on foot towards the nearby transit station. And right next door, customers were inside the dining room of this Mexican restaurant and they absolutely heard that shooting. Come on fours, Michelle Esteban. Authorities are investigating a suspicious death in Iman claw this afternoon someone flagged down a state trooper about a truck with a dead person inside. This happened along 212 avenue southeast. Protecting mental health starts at home with personal relationships, according to the U.S. Surgeon General. In a conversation with King County executive Dow Constantine, doctor Vivek Murthy, says one thing contributing to the country's mental health crisis is increased feelings of loneliness and isolation. Your time spent with family and friends is not a luxury time. It's not a time where you're off the job and just goofing off. That is time where you're sustaining yourself. But I also would ask you to think about this for your community. Murthy says among the reasons youth mental health is at a critical point, they are constantly inundated with news of a dangerous world and wondering as the future will be even worse. Murthy tells the national meeting of county leaders, what they hear at home is valuable information as the federal government tries to help. The heartbreak in Bellevue over plans to close some schools for declining enrollment could play out in other districts facing the same challenge, northwest news radio's Carly Johnson. When schools closed, march of 2020 because of the pandemic and students were sent home for remote learning. It was not a great fit for a lot of families who ended up disenrolled from the public school system. State superintendent of public instruction Chris Rachel referenced that in an address last month. When there was dislocation and disruption to their continuous learning, families made important choices for themselves that they thought was best for their needs. You made the best choice for your families. Public school, private schools, home school options and others. The kids have sun reports districts across the west sound are not immune to the declines. Bremerton has lost 481 students since 2019. Central kitsap is down 636 students and south kitsap has lost 867 most districts have already cut staff and further cuts are expected, though as yet there is no talk of closing schools. Carlene Johnson northwest news radio, like insider trading only for liquor, the Oregon Department of Justice opens a criminal investigation targeting managers at the state's alcohol regulatory agency and the head of that agency has announced his resignation. The officials are accused of using insider knowledge to locate and buy rare and expensive bottles of bourbon for personal use sometimes to resell at a profit. The criminal probe is the result of an internal investigation by the Oregon liquor and cannabis commission, finding the practice has been going on for several years. Executive director Steve Mark submitted his resignation letter today, noting the governor asked him to step down. The widow of a decorated war hero is at odds with the U.S. Army, the cemetery plot where the tenon a woman hoped to be buried alongside her late husband, has been filled with someone else's remains, northwest news radio's corwin Hague. Mary Dowling is a regular visitor to camp Lewis cemetery at joint base Lewis mccord, her late husband bob Dowling has rested there ever since 1967 when the decorated helicopter pilot was killed in action in Vietnam. I visit bob's grave every Memorial Day in every veteran's day for sure. Mary, who never remarried, had reserved the plot next to bob's as her own final resting place, but last Veterans Day she tells the news tribune, she found a headstone already on the site, inscribed with a stranger's name, some one else had been buried in her plot. I was just shocked. I didn't know what even do. In a statement to the news for you in the army says, only that some time over the past 56 years, despite her regular notifications of continued interest, Mary's reservation had been lost. I hadn't been notified that my plot was taken or would be taken. Mary says the army has offered her the option of being buried on top of bob's casket, space allowing, or for her cremated remains, to share bob's plot, or they said she could have a nearby plot. She says the only acceptable offer would be to have her plot returned to her, that would involve moving the service member currently buried there, the army tells the news tribune. That's one thing they will never do. Corwin hake, northwest, news radio. And starting tonight, drivers

"Northwest news time, 6 O 6. A new report on enrollment numbers in kitsap county shows students who left the public school system early in the pandemic, have not returned. We know a lot of families moved, some went to private schools or charter schools and others opted to continue online learning outside of the public school system. State superintendent of public instruction. Chris Rachel, in an update last month, said the declines, take a big toll. The 4% reduction in our enrollments in this state. That's $500 million a year in funding equivalent from our legislature. When students are here, we are resourced when students leave, our schools lose the resources. The kids have some reports, the central kids have school district already made several staff adjustments ahead of this year to save two and a half $1 million. Their enrollment is down 636 students over the last three years, sell kids have lost 867 students. The Bellevue school district recently announced plans to close three schools, their enrollment down 9% over three years and in Seattle, the decline is about 7% closing and consolidating schools is also on the table for Seattle. And that's Carly Johnson reporting. A new CDC report shows one in three teenage girls seriously considered suicide and report and what the report calls a high rates of sadness on the heels of that report, the U.S. Surgeon General doctor Vivek Murthy sat down with King County executive Dow Constantine to talk about the mental health crisis in our country. Murthy's his parents know that they need help, but that what they know about mental health resources is not enough. Many of them grew up without the kind of resources and structures that you would hope to have, perhaps to understand what mental health is and know how to protect your mental health. So we're asking a lot more parents now that we have in years. They really scream me out for support. Murthy says our kids also face real dangers to their mental health from bullying to a constant barrage of news that's adding to their stress. He says focusing on relationships with friends and family can go a long way. The widow of a decorated Vietnam War helicopter pilot says the army mistakenly gave away the joint base Lewis mccord cemetery plot she'd reserved for herself next to her husband. Mary Dowling from Tino has been visiting the grave of her late husband bob Dowling at camp Lewis cemetery for 56 years. She had long planned to be laid to rest herself in the plot right next to his, reserving the space decades ago. This was my reserved plot on this side. Then last Veterans Day Mary tells the news tribune, she found a headstone there, someone else had been buried in her plot. It was just a total shock. She contacted the army, but a representative was not much help. He really didn't know why this happened. In a statement to the news to be in the army says, assigning the plot to someone else was a mistake, Mary's reservation had been misplaced, but the statement says the army will not move the service member currently buried there, and after all these years, Mary is left without her final resting place. Now I met the stage where I might need it in a day. And right now, I don't have a place. Corwin hake, northwest, news radio.

"And it was at that moment that my life began to fast forward into early adulthood. If you think about the average 9 year old, you know, they're not really cognitively even aware of their surroundings, let alone helping out, but she taught me how to cook for specifically bewildering water and making oatmeal and making ramen noodles and all these different things and hot dogs and all this kind of stuff. I began getting my little brother up and taken to school because we would walk to school together. She would dress us the same, which was kind of weird, but you know, you know, and that kind of started it, unfortunately she passed away when I was 11 years old. I immediately went to go to work with my dad and living with my dad who had missed a huge chunk of my life. And he was in the construction trade framing houses building houses, and that's actually when I met my first mentor. I got by the name of Steve Mark and you know a little bit about Steve because you heard me tell some of the stories. But there are so many I could share, but I'll share this one because specifically because it was the first catalyst to understanding that if I wanted to have or be where he was, I was going to have to change a lot of who I was internally. Right? So learning to live from the inside out actually came from understanding him. And he came to me one afternoon. I'm probably 16 or 17 years old. And I'd kind of got into that place where I was starting to kind of do some of the behaviors my dad would do, which I borrow money, never without the intent to repay it. Start to kind of like waste and be very with money and stuff like that. I wasn't really, I wasn't thinking about what wealth could be, right? And for some reason, he pulls me down at the framing crew this afternoon. He sits me down in this Jeep grand chair that he used to drive all the time. He's looking in his 80s, so big white pearly dentures, you know, kind of big old smile. I showed a picture of him during transforming when you were there and it was interesting because he sits me down and he said, Steven, what's the difference between a rich man and a poor man? And almost like, well, that's easy. That's money, man. Of course, it's money, like a real rich man got money. Poor man don't got money, right? He said, absolutely not. It's the way they think. And he said, if you're going to do something of meaningful, if you're going to go to the next level, you need to understand that poor people spend rich people invest. So let me ask you a question. Do you want to learn to think like me or do you want to continue thinking like your father? And it hurt, but I was glad he told me. Yeah. Like I was so glad he told me because, you know, that entire time, I had never thought outside of my immediate surroundings, my immediate circumstances, right? And it was through that concept that I actually started getting a little bit into this, I guess what we would call person development bug nowadays, right? And one of the things that I've shared about business specifically, because I got asked recently. What does it take to build an 8 figure business or a 9 figure business or whatever? And I actually listed out the tin cans. Like these are things you can't do. And if you do do them, you need to stop doing them now and change course, right? And the number one that I had was you can not build a business without building yourself. Yes. You can not build an entrepreneurial skyscraper, it's not going to happen without you building yourself. Oh, that one hit home. Because something I've been having to focus on this weekend. And you know, it's interesting that you said that because the first thing I think is, you know, a lot of people see the entrepreneur success in the journey as, you know, it's hard, but also too like when you're in a coaching aspect of personal development aspect in your teaching. Things in life happen that are out of your willpower and some people expect for. It understanding and sometimes people expect for you to talk about it and so much more. But as an entrepreneur, you have to make an understanding as if it's going to benefit your community or your business. And sometimes it doesn't always look the best, right? And secondly, from there, even when you go through gross person life, it happens gross happen in entrepreneurship. That can knock you on your face. A lot. This weekend, I think I cried the most I've ever cried this year, right? And, you know, I was like, how am I going to wake up Monday and do this? And here's the thing is what I always tell my community is, even though my videos might help them, this might impact their life, seeing our interview and all this. They also impact us. And when we are in a society where we're helping others, I feel like it impacts is they help us. And the way that I was affected by this and personally is, I have a job to do. It wasn't like, okay, I'm on you. You can cry this weekend, but all right, we got to people depending on you. Stay on your mission. Yeah. Right? Stay on what you can control, continue to show up because your mission is to help others. And so I love that you said that because your mentor said, you have to change that mindset that done. The rich is your mindset. The richness is in that mindset because imagine if we didn't have that, it would just be, I would be sulking for weeks, the business would probably go, you know? People would be asking where's apollonia all this stuff? And so I think that their richness is in how we go about life, the decisions that we make in life as well.

"So. I'm gonna do my best unpack. This is definitely a big. It's huge it. Ask so i. I've been asked that before by a couple of people as well as i understand it again was something unique. Well i think it comes down to two things first of all. Can you set your set your sights on an aspirational mentor. Can you can instead of looking at the people in which you've been surrounded by the soil that you've been planted in right because if you're in toxic soil you're not going to have a great for right is there an aspirational mentor. Somewhere in your pipeline. Somewhere in your peripheral somewhere in the youtube space or podcast space or any number of places that you aspire to be. The second step of that process is now give yourself permission to aspire to be in that position aspire it. There's a certain level of hopelessness that comes in from accepting the status quo yet. There's a certain level of hope that comes from setting the expectation on building. Something that might become a new status quo so to speak right so for me. I would dare say that the reason that transformed my life is because i literally had. That story was a kia sake. Has that rich dad. Poor dad i literally had the living illustration of that in front of me right. Here's here's what i witnessed. I witnessed my father getting up five. Am most every day right getting in the car driving construction site probably thirty to forty five minutes across town listening to the radio. This country stays local country station and getting to the job site pulling out the tools pulling out the latter's pulling out the stuff all that heavy none of it light getting going through a leading the sun. Come up letting it be hot or cold rainy or dry or whatever. The case may be go through a very very long day for thirty five. Six seven o'clock only just just before. Dusk began to put that equipment back into the truck. Get back into the car and drive another thirty five or forty minutes down the street right back to the house to get back home to have the family of already eaten dinner. You're eating dinner last because you get their last right sometimes. A dinner cold to watch him take off his military combat boots shoes that he used to wear when he was working right. Get into his chair right. Put on a robe. And then basically pass out in his chair around midnight or one o'clock via the chair he was stumbled into the bed. He fall asleep and then cycle repeat itself over and over again. Conversely i would see steve mark who seemed to come into work when he wanted to have meetings that he wanted to have freedoms that he wanted to everything from vacations to probably one of the most important things that i ever saw him. Do that just made this touch my heart more than anything else is. I would watch steve go into the local launch places that we all kind of go together all the low because all the one spices. We're kinda close on the job site. He would be sitting there with his wife. Lona they'd be sitting there to call it a local barbecue restaurant. They had a couple of them that we used to frequent because obviously north carolina's got big on the barbecue. Right right we would sit down at the table. we would barely kind of have a meal. He would nice meal he would then get ready to get up and go. He would find out his waitress. That was waiting on him would be a single waitress. Didn't have you know the child that she was. You know she had didn't have a father and all this. He was spend time investing in getting to know people he would. Then pull out a thousand dollars in cash out of his wallet put it under the hush been put it down on the table and walk out the door. Never say a word he would then basically watch. I would watch. He wouldn't watch. I would watch the waitress would come over and be completely wrecked completely. Re talking knees on the floor baller over the place yelling about how she compare light bill now how she can buy formula all this kind of stuff and i just knew that i wanted to make that level of impact and i knew that i knew that i knew that i knew that i knew that. I could not make that level of impact if i followed the trajectory in which my father was doing and so i think it comes down to which mentor monitoring. Are you monitoring someone who is heading down a totally different path and ultimately what you want and i think as as an american culture sometimes we feel guilty because we want more right we we. We feel shane. Like it's not okay. Like i will tell you that some of the things that i hear a couple of different things that i had to overcome as part of this journey i had to overcome my own. Father tried to talk me out of going into business for myself right. Because his first business failed now he loved me. Right was nothing about that. Didn't love me but he was leading his results. Dictate mosher out of his. Mind out of love okay. I had to deal with walking away from friends and family member. Who would give me a bunch of grief about you know you. You scoggins man. We don't we. Don't do that stuff around here. Man you make man you can go out there and try eagle like all these different like quote unquote self-fulfilling prophecies. Right that their life experience. It's it's the whole poverty mindset right had a grudge southern rendition of it to their stellar up in the south to so kudos that keeps on. Yeah but i mean you look at it. I think it comes down to which mentor following. Yeah mean i mean at the end of the day. I think that was at. That's why the personal development industry has the the ability to unlock people if they get around the right mental well. I'll tell you stephen. So every week we almost every week i post a question to the audience that we use acuna and tom ziegler and i talk about it and this was probably within the past sixty days. I posted a question for one of the shows. And you know boom seventy some responses. And i think within the same twenty four hours i posted one asking in essence. Who do you have in your life that does encourage and lift you up and it was cricket. So i think i got two responses. Yeah which. I've learned over time tells me that people didn't have a response to give. They don't have that.
