"7 11. The man who became VMI's first black superintendent two years ago is now facing a tax from a mostly white conservative alumni group that group is questioning Cedric wins pay and some critics even want him fired. Washington Post metro reporter Ian Shapiro wrote about this and he joins us live now. I tell us more about this alumni group and why this criticism is coming now. Hi, thanks for having me. I appreciate it very much. What's happening? What's happening now is it's sort of been a slow paced war in an effort to shape the identity of the nation's oldest state supported military college. Two years ago there the governor northam at the time ordered an investigation into college for racism that investigation ended and concluded that the college suffered from racism and must change. And so the school has been instituting all sorts of diversity equity and inclusion reforms and many white alumni don't like it, and they are attacking the superintendent who was black. Their first black superintendent, 183 year history of the college. So they are questioning his pay. He got a bonus of a $100,000 in September. For his performance for the 2021 22 academic year. And a political action committee questioned it and alongside that many of its supporters or donors have been going on radio or social media calling for him to be fired or removed. It's been quite the drama. I am has there been a response from either wins or the college to this point? Yeah, so major retired army major general wins didn't want to address with me at least the attacks against him, though his supporters came on the record with me. And the chairman of the board. The president of the board of visitors at VMI gave an interview with me and defended him and his bonus. And said that he had led the college in the last year through a tumultuous time, the pandemic, the response to a state order investigation. He said to me, anytime people are attacking the superintendent, I'm going to be unhappy. He's the one that we're counting on for helping us to helping to bring us forward and protect the mission and purpose of the institute to bring us the next level. This is a quote from Tom Washington, a VMI graduate who's white and he is the president of the board of visitors. So there was a defense in the school on this front as well. It's been a really tough time for the school. Well, I am before we let you go. Do we know of his income is out of line in regards to previous leaders of VMI? No, it's not. It's in keeping with other leaders. What's interesting is that when I interviewed a lot of the interview people in the VMI community about whether they organized a political action committee against prior superintendents and questioned their compensation despite all sorts of issues that had happened under the terms of other superintendents, we couldn't find examples of this happening before. So it's just interesting that all this is happening when we've got the GMI's first black superintendent. One 83, 183 years history. And there are these questions about his compensation being raised. So he's going to Washington Post metro reporter Ian Shapiro. Thank you for being with us this evening. Yeah, thanks for having me. I appreciate it. Thanks so much.

Uvalde Police Made Wrong Decision in Waiting to Save Children
"Now I'm going to go back to what the DPS I don't know what they call the head guy DPS. It may be the superintendent or something like that, but the hitman and DPS who is obviously wasn't at the scene. Got briefed the other day and he gave a statement to say that the chief of the independent school district made the wrong decision. Now, people like, I don't know if they do it intentionally, but they leave out the fact that he said, in the presence of hindsight, meaning looking back on it with the information we know now, it appeared they made the wrong decision. Now, even with that being said, we still have a huge conflict of them not having the proper tools and equipment in place to get through the door. Not making any excuses for them at the end of the day, they may have made the wrong decision, but the question is that they make the wrong decision at the time, was it knowingly making the wrong decision was it cowardice, was he incompetent or was it a matter of making the wrong judgment and facing a difficult situation? Meaning that it could go left or right, you don't know what the outcome will be. You make the best decision known to you at the time and then later on, you find out, hey, I could have actually went left or right or maybe I should have done something different. And if I had all the information present to me, maybe that would have happened.
Breitbart's Alex Marlow on the Left Politicizing Every Moment
"We have an individual with us who if they gave out official employee identity cards, his would say employee number one of Breitbart News. He is the editor in chief of the most influential conservative news site on the planet. He's Alex Marlow. Welcome Alex to America first. Thank you, doctor G oids appreciate the kind intro. And I appreciate the opportunity to return the favor for you who always is on my show on Thursdays, which we love. Yeah, we talk national security. We talk domestic politics, manga, national security, every Thursday morning on your SiriusXM patriot news channel a show. Please check out the podcast. Alex is a very, very good social media platform. Just go to all the usual places and plug in at Alex Marlow and check out the podcast as well. So much to discuss, let's start we have to because of the left's reaction to it with the events of who valde the shooting, the horrific shooting in Texas. When somebody who is running for governor, stages a disruption of the first press conference from the sitting governor, the head of public safety, the superintendent of schools, lieutenant governor, and grandstands on the still warm bodies of those who are killed, shouldn't we draw some conclusions as to the depths of the depravity that the left are prepared to sink to Alex. Yeah, this was something that certainly would have seemed uncouth ten or 15 years ago. And now it's something that probably surprises no one who read the news on a regular basis. It used to be that there used to be some sort of a governor in the brain of people on the left. And to the much lesser degree, do they have this problem, where there's an urge to politicize every single moment. And there is a thought that perhaps there's some things that are more important than politics. And now everything is officially political. It's been game on. It really finally solidified when Donald Trump came down that escalator in 2015. I mean, that was it. That was the moment. When everyone just realized it's game on, however you politicize anyone that's how you

Jeff James: The Benefit of Reconfiguring a School Lobby
"Great Something as simple as configuring your lobby so that you have a captured entrance So if somebody gets through that first door say the person who's giving admittance is the secretary right Somebody pushes the button and says hey I'm here to pick up my kid They come through that first door And at that point the secretary sees something untoward That way they're trapped in there They would need to be granted access through that second door before they could gain entry to the building And look they can shoot through the glass and walk through like Lanza did it at sandy hook But what that does is buy some time And the other thing I advocate in all schools I coordinate security with is anyone in your school district should be able to call a lockdown I don't care if it's a maintenance guy if it's a secretary if it's a superintendent They should have a mechanism in place where if your maintenance guy sees a guy walking across your parking lot with a rifle he should be able to hit a button on his phone or get to a hard button or something and let everybody know to lock down right now Because if that secretary sees it but she has no mechanism to fix the problem then it's still that it's still a failure So yeah there are some cost low cost solutions that are sustainable that can be put in place And look you get it We talked about armored glasses heavy and it's hard and it's extremely expensive but it doesn't need to be all that There are other mitigations you could other things you could put in place that are almost cost free And the biggest one is training And you've heard me hit this button before It has to be a consistent constant thing that you're doing in your district several times a year to train your people to say not only this is what we're looking for if we see a guy with a gun But this is what we're looking for in behaviors Now people don't just snap In every one of these school shootings what always comes out their social media that they glorified Hitler that they glorified Columbine There is a clear pattern of behavior that leads people to the path toward violence that if you know what you're looking for it's easy to see

Here it said last week is we need to make sure that in the state of texas this is not a demotion for us three schools and when he says that he means the big twelve is one of the power five conferences in college football. They wanna make sure they don't lose that status and with texas know you lean. That is absolutely a danger for this conference of them. Losing the prestigious added because they're losing the two tenths will schools in the conference. Does that suggest that these three schools see their fates as linked that That we won't see one or two of them. Jump to a two different conferences. I get the sense that they will. I get the sense that they will try to together because they are going to feel like they are valued together is more attractive and better long-term than it is separately. All of these schools have competitive with departments. They've done well in football. They've done well in other sports You know baylor won a national championship basketball. Texas tech was just there a few years ago but more i think collectively they have a lot much more value with the three of them together. Which is why think they will seek a solution together. That said they're going to gain out all our options. If the pac twelve came to texas tech tomorrow and said hey we'd love to have you come to our conference texas not gonna turn it down if dc aren't included. They're going to do what's best for their schools. But i think they understand that their long term future is probably best linked together As we talk about this we're we're talking about from media rights As one of the key drivers of these kinds of things. And i'm wondering how much that in and of itself is changing because up until a few years ago we were talking about broadcast rights. And now i imagine we're also talking about streaming rights and maybe at an ever greater percentage of these contracts coming down to streaming. How does that change the math. It does big time. Because that is goes back to one of the reasons why i think texas and oklahoma decided to make the move ten years ago. When we had a major round of realignment and a lot of schools change conferences. A lot of it was driven on cable households. How many tv households does the footprint. You're in bring to our conference with the cable model declining and changing in so many people moving to streaming in court cutting becoming the huge trend that has changed. The math conferences are no longer looking for schools because of their tv footprint so to speak. It's now more about football inventory. What kind of quality football program. What kind of quality athletics program do you have and do you as a program yourself attract some attention.

And i call it pasture because is undeveloped but the school ballpit land. So we already own a lot of acreage out there. We have spot to build that high school. And i think that was pretty good thinking on the school board part that they got that land close enough so we already have the land in place. Okay so going to be there so you would actually end up with the high school in intermediate school and i say that because the intermediate school is actually a change and one of the reasons. You're doing this the way. I understand it because of overcrowding correct it is so there's a there's a domino effect.

"In these and other complex text questions from a Tre Detroit businesses learn more Schindel rock dot com. This is the guy Gordon Show on news Talk. 7 60 wjr want to get your thoughts about Secretary Benson's proposals that she rolled out yesterday and we illustrated a few of them for you Also talk to Anne Boleyn, who's gonna be on the Ethics Committee of the Elections Committee. It will be reviewing all of this. In the meantime, interesting story just popped on The Detroit News. The state superintendent of schools, Michael Rice, was testifying in the House. And said that he believes that all districts in the state of Michigan need to extend their school years this year. That they need to go beyond the 180 days have required instruction to try to make up for the Devils. He said. Look, we needed more than 180 days. Even before the pandemic Now we certainly need more days. And this has really been born out in surveys with parents Education Trust Midwest put out a survey that shows the majority of parents Who normally would be saying, Hey, leave us alone in the summer. Let us take her kids on vacation. The majority of parents now say, Yeah, we've got to do summer school this year. We've got to catch up because this virtual learning Just isn't cutting it. So the state superintendent calling on lawmakers to legislatively extend the school year and make it Maura than 180 days, and to do that. Permanently. My only question is is what good does it do to extend the school year? If we aren't going to get the kids and the teachers back in the classroom? If you can't do that, What is the point? I'm just extending virtual learning that we know isn't as effective if you've got some if you're in the education business if you're an educator, if you've serving at a school board, love to know what you think about this 1, 808 5909571, 808 590 W. J. R and you know, the governor said on March 1st deadline to get in person instruction to set that is the goal. That's still a month away. And by the way, the Let them play folks did file suit Today. They're opening this up in a number of different ways. They're saying that it's an age discrimination. How does that happen? Well, because they say, Look, the college kids can play prose can play but you're not letting high school kids play. The arbitrariness of it. You could have 68 people on an open skate at an ice rink. But you can't have 11 hockey players playing high school sports on an ice rink after school. The fact that you can have kids playing basketball during PE, but as soon as the bell rings it three they can't play anymore. They also say, Look, governor, if you want to look at science and data, we've got the science and data. All of the nearby states around us are playing winter sports, all of them. Hyah! Have higher infection rates. And have higher incidences of positive tests than what we've got. Where is the common sense in that? S so they make they also make this a civil rights issue. They have evidence that this hits Urban District's harder and they also have a number of plaintiffs who are pretty compelling. These are in many cases, elite high school athletes, kids, They're relying on their athletic skills to get them a full ride to college. It will determine their life's path. They say this arbitrariness of shutting down Winter athletics until February, 21st and they have no confidence that they're going to be able to go back then. Because they keep moving the goal posts on this Um, that this is derailing their life plan. So if you wanna weigh in on that, anyway, they let them play folks, and I gotta tell you, I I don't know how well they're going to do other attempts, using arguments that may not be as novel Either failed. In the courts, or by the time they finally got through the process, and it already been rectified. They'd let them go back in this case every day that they missed would extend the playoffs a little bit later, it would jeopardize spring sports. On deer running out of days on the calendar, and we heard some very compelling testimony on that from from folks. Let's get back to your calls, and I just wanted to get you up to date on those two stories. And if you want to weigh in on that, we certainly welcome it.
