Kelly Tshibaka: Still Waiting to Find Out Alaska Senator

"What the hell's going on up there We are still waiting to determine the final outcome of the election as you know the actual election was on November 8th I think we have the least amount of votes to count in the 50 states and we will take the longest to count them And a large part of that is because they implemented this ranked choice system that George Soros funded organizations are trying to push throughout the United States There are only two states that have it statewide at this point That's main and Alaska and we know what those two U.S. senators have in common And we're dealing with it for the first time up here in Alaska One of the things that we saw as an effect is one of the lowest voter turnouts that we've seen in decades And unfortunately I think that that has had a real big impact on the results So for ten days or so I was leading substantially over Murkowski and then just here recently it is flipped She has a .7% lead over me the election is not done yet They still have to run the ranked choice algorithm where the fourth and the third place candidates will drop off and depending on who they ranked as their second place in third place preferences That's ultimately going to determine who wins this race So we're still in this fight This could go to a potential recount This could go to people filing lawsuits So I'm asking your listeners for help Please help us at Kelly for AK dot com I don't know what twists and turns will come next but I will need help So Kelly for AK dot com we've also had to pay for staff costs this whole time for doing the ballot observations for weeks now and that's been pretty pricey as well So if you can help I'd appreciate it Kelly for a K dot com

Kevin McCullough Helps Us Unravel the Midterms

"Can't get past the fact that there is fraud happening in our elections that people are stealing Democrats are stealing elections and we have leadership in the Republican Party that doesn't say one word as though we're crazy for seeing what we see. That starts with McCarthy and McConnell. I don't really get it. How can they not deal with this? Do they not care? Are we seeing things? Are we imagining things? What's happening? I want to be very clear that I do not put Kevin McCarthy in the same bucket with Mitch McConnell by long shot. And I don't want to be associated with those comments specifically, but to your point that the rhinos, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell would have done so. That's absolutely true. And all you have to do to just judge yourself on the test of what you're saying is they've had two years to do something about it, why wasn't something done in Arizona where governor ducey was also one of the rhinos. He of course is no longer going to be governor. But they did not in Arizona and in Nevada. They did not get the needed reforms done. You still got bad voting procedures in place and despite the hope and the turnout of 6 million plus more voters for the Republicans across the nation, they were not able to overcome the what looks like direct corruption in those two states.

Nevada and Georgia Are Too Close to Call

"So as we understand it now, there are two states essentially left for that are up in the air, Georgia, and Nevada. The Republicans need to win both in order to have moved the needle at all. It's right now 50 50 and that's in might as well be 100 zero. Because all the Democrats vote Democrat and essentially all the Republicans vote Republican, so if you are ahead because you have the vice presidency, then you might as well have all 100. A seats, all 100 Senate seats, so the Republicans have to win both Georgia and Nevada. It looks like they've now called Wisconsin for Ron Johnson, which I had a personal interest in, not because I know Ron Johnson, but because he is one of the few great people in politics. He has made a personal sacrifice to help this country. He is a truth teller. And I have come up with an idea. With regard to how to know who was lying in public life. That unless it's unless there's something I'm missing, should be the smoking gun that the left lies all the time.

Victor Shi on How Restrictive Voter ID Laws Are Affecting Young Voters

"Victor, to what degree is the speaking of Texas, then doing stuff like making sure you can use a gun ID, but not a student ID to vote. I mean, to what degree do you think that's going to affect things? And I guess that's the problem. We've got to get the levers of power back to change things that are blatantly discriminatory like that. And that's one of the things that I've been seeing in the data overwhelmingly the two states where you're seeing young people turn out far lower rates than 2018 are Florida and Texas and part of the reason why I think that is because they have voter ID laws that are surgically targeted to make it harder to vote. Voter ID law voter ID law is just like you said where just because you have a student ID doesn't mean that you can actually vote because it's not an acceptable form of ID. Things like getting rid of college campus centers so that voters have to go to a campus, I guess, go to a vote voting ill patient further away. I mean, all of these things are so designed to keep people from the polls. And those are also the states where you're seeing young people just turn out in high numbers. Well, I don't have a car or they don't have a license from the state that they're, you know, universities in, they have it from their home state.

The Midterm States in Play With Kevin McCullough

"States are in play, Kevin? What do you think about well, there's a couple of big issues that two states could end up helping that some people aren't noticing. And they are the congressional races from New York and from California. New York by itself, if it wins all the toss up races statewide for congressional seats, the Mike Lawler race against mister maloney, who is the head of the democratic congressional committee. If that race goes Lawler's way and you pick up two or three other seats across the they themselves, New York in its own delegation could swing the entire House of Representatives back to the Republicans. That's how significant these are. You've got a number of races in New York that are very close that Republicans are surging in. You've got a number of races in California. They're so far down on the ticket in these typically big blue states. People don't think about them making that big of a difference, but they really will.

Steel City, Real Gritty

"Those of you who don't know Pennsylvania, geographically, Philadelphia is in the far east. And Pennsylvania is in the far west of the state. Very close to Ohio, and of course Philadelphia is very close to New Jersey. And you have a different world, it is truly like every other state or not every other state. They may, I don't know if there are two North Dakota's, although there might be maybe this Fargo in the rest of the state. But anyway, like most states, there are two states in Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia state, and the Pittsburgh state. I might add that on a personal level. I put Pittsburgh. That was not my first time here. But these are all obviously. Brief stays that have formed my opinion. But I have been to so many places, so many times that I do get a sense. I think I do get a sense of a place. I really like Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is up there in quality cities. Like I felt often, for example, about Tampa.

The Left Is Pushing to Reshape Voting Systems Across America

"Jason snead executive director honest elections project action over at daily caller The left's latest ploy to remake elections as a complicated scheme called ranked choice voting And this is what they just did in Alaska Advocates claim it strengthens majority rule and leads to a healthier democracy and they've pushed dozens of municipalities in two states to use it Now Nevada is their latest target voters there will decide on election day If they want to join in this nationwide experiment of experiences any judge they be watched to sit that one out The measure known as question three eventually passes if it does it would have to pass again in 2024 Nevada's traditional lexan system will be upended Primary voting will be replaced with California style jungle primaries The 5 candidates who get the most votes will advance to the general and rank choice voting would be used to determine the final winner That sounds simple But it is far more complex than its proponents make it out to be Instead of one person one vote voters rank multiple candidates from first to last If no candidate wins a majority of first place votes then the lowest ranked candidate is eliminated Those votes are redistributed based on each voter's second place picks And this process of elimination is repeated until one candidate wins a majority of votes or at least appears to announce So in other words you vote down the list and it could be the fourth person you vote for becomes the second person on the list That's not representative government It sounds like a lottery

Effective Action Comes From Texas and Florida, Not DC Republicans

"When we scanned the landscape of American politics, we noticed that there is very effective action taking place at the state level. And I'm thinking now particularly of two states, Florida and Texas, which are really two of the largest, if not the largest red states. And the governors, but not just the governor, the lieutenant governor, the political establishment in the states, seems to be moving on multiple fronts. It seemed initially in Texas that Greg Abbott got a bit of a slow start, at least in this term. And he got battered a little bit because he had a mask mandate on, not for that long. And this was, of course, at the very beginning of COVID and then he decided he thought better of it than the mass mandate disappeared, and it's never coming back. Of course, in Florida, desantis went to kind of full bore and decided we're not shutting the state down at all. So we will deal with the pandemic. We will take the measures we need to. We will provide a treatment that we need to but we are not closing off economic activity and we're not going to stop people from going to churches, none of that. Turned out, I think, in retrospect to be the right call. And desantis has taken leadership in a number of areas. I mean, it's almost like every week or even some cases every day, the guy comes up with something new and just off the top of my head a few initiatives by desantis number one, let's set up an election integrity unit. In fact, I think he calls it an election police unit and they've arrested a bunch of felons who have been voting, so desantis is on that issue. Number two, he is on the issue of woke corporations. And of course, Florida got into a skirmish with Disney. They pulled Disney's special subsidy that allows Disney to operate almost like a city, desantis is all over the so called ESG issue. The issue of, again, large corporate corporate funds deciding that they will only invest in companies that are inclusive in terms of diversity, or companies that are that follow climate guidelines. And decide to say, listen, if you want to do that, you could be my guest, but the state of Florida is not going to be investing in you. We're not going to be putting our pension money where the pension money is being used as a kind of ransom. For companies to move in awoke direction.

States That Currently Use Ranked Choice Voting

"Into it. Alaska and Maine currently are the two states that use it in statewide elections, both Alaska and Maine. Now, Alaska, I believe, is the first one to go all in on Senate races and on gubernatorial races. Maine, I think this might be the first election they're doing it. I could be off. I know we have some people in Maine that listen to the program, but Maine has some form of ranked choice voting statewide. But you are starting to see movements to implement rank choice voting in other states. For example, California uses it in local elections in some jurisdictions. So does Oregon so does Colorado. So does New Mexico. So does Minnesota. So it is Michigan. Could you imagine Michigan going to rank choice voting? Donald Trump would not have won the presidential election. In 2016, if there was ranked choice voting, New York, Delaware, Maryland and Vermont. They use it in local elections in some jurisdictions. Now these states have local option for municipalities to opt in, but this is how it starts. It starts with local municipalities for some people to opt in and then they start to have ballot referendums well funded out of state money to make it statewide. And the way that they frame it is so appealing, they say, what if I told you there was a better way to vote? That the way that you are voting is antiquated and outdated, a better way to do politics to run to the middle to allow the common sense problem solvers to win, not the radical, not the radical right wingers or radical left wingers.

"There was a funny headline about judge jeanine losing it on the set of the 5 yesterday. The headline of things said she lost it over this and then she lost it over that. But we're all kind of losing it. We're all enraged that this is happening in America. Here was judge jeanine on the 5 on the Fox News channel. I've read all the reporting. I saw some reporting last week that said that there was this awful story, this ten year old little girl that was raped and was an incest case and you had attorney generals across the country and including in those two states and we don't know what this case is about. We think that Democrats have made it all up. Only to have to come back and recant. To find out when the facts came out. But we should wait for the facts to come out here. The president is presumed innocent. Until proven otherwise. And I agree with that. But your speculation, I just think I don't think it's speculation at all. You do not. You do not break into a house of a guy that you've been working with for 9 months that you have to admit has been cooperating with you for a presidential records. No. Can I ask you a question? No. I'm going to answer your question. Yes, ma'am. And you do not do that and have guys who are they are 15 and women I might add at the front of Mar-a-Lago in a situation like this where the man's about to announce for president if he's going to run for president. But if I were the lawyer, the first thing I'd say is, as a citizen of the United States, I want to know from the Department of Justice, why you're doing this. I want to know from the FBI, whether or not this is legitimate, because everything that you've done regarding Donald Trump has been illegal, illegitimate, and immoral in the country knows it, and you have destroyed our faith in the justice system. Just one question, George. And it's not Donald Trump. It's their fault. His lawyers have that search more. They could release it. And that government can answer the question.

"Transparent. Yeah, I mean, you know, if anyone followed along with the Facebook whistleblower over the summer, I think we got a little peek behind the curtain into how some of these companies really like profit seek with our data. When I interact with the company, I'm only so valuable to them, right? Like I can only buy so many cups of coffee in a given year. But they can take what they know about me. They can take my behavioral characteristics and say, oh, I know that this consumer is like a 30 something white female that has two small babies. They can sell that in infinite number of times and continue to profit seek and they can sell it to whomever, and they typically sell it to whoever the highest bidder is, wherever that highest bidder may be. And again, you know, like 90% of this is benign and it's for consumer insights and for product improvement, but sometimes it's not. Sometimes when you're selling insights about customers, it's really to, you know, for nefarious reasons. You talked about kids. Our bill goes one step further to protect children. It says that for a child under the age of 18, they or their parent has to opt in to their data being sold or shared. No one would bring this up in lobbying because I think it's very politically untenable to say you don't support the children. But I have a sneaking suspicion that there is a great deal of fear in turning off that spigot of insights into minors. You mentioned it, you identify these kids early on and then you've got a product that the data is a product that you can continue to profit off of for life. Another component of our bill is that a company would have to delete information about you. If you have an interactive with them for three years, a records retention, you know, every year on my birthday, I probably get 20 happy birthday emails from vendors and stores that I have not shopped in for at least 15 years. And the fact that there are all of these companies out there that know my name address phone number and birthday, when I have no intention of ever shopping there again is highly unsettling to me. Yeah, that's a terrific point. So in closing here, what I love about this too is the states that are rising up against these tech companies, not just waiting for Washington, D.C.. A lot of people ask, what are we going to do about big tech? How are we going to restrain them? Well, this is one way to protect consumers, but also punish the companies that hate us that kicked Trump off social media that consistently restrict our ability to speak whether it be about vaccines or anything. So talk about the state based component of this Florida is the leader in so many ways Florida is a free state. And it will be a disappointment if Florida is not able to get this right. I agree. This would be legislation better suited to the federal level. Period. There are so many companies that operate across state lines and internationally. And I agree that it is burdensome for them to have to figure out a patchwork of regulation in different states around the country. However, that doesn't mean I'm going to sleep on privacy for floridians until the federal government gets their button gear and passes something. That's right. Well, we have now a couple states were able to pass a version of this last year. There's a few more of us that are on the cusp of doing it to set this year. As more and more states start to step up for privacy for their residents, it puts tremendous upward pressure on the feds to get their butts in here. I don't ever like to compare us to California, but California passed a version of a consumer data privacy Bill last year. It was very broad and very bold and very California. We are intending to do that the same thing, a big, bold step for privacy, but with Florida flavor. I think that if two of the three largest states in the country, one red, one blue, can pass such compelling legislation. I think that even ratchets up the pressure even more on D.C. to do something. I agree. Well, Fiona, thank you for your leadership and I hope this gets passed and I hope the Senate does the right thing. And we appreciate it, hope to meet you sometime soon. Thank you.

"two states" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"I run this bill for two sessions now and you know, we've got three days left in the legislative session in Tallahassee and unless the Senate can get their get their butts in gear. I don't know if we're going to be able to get this bill done. Well, everyone needs to understand, you know, the companies that are opposed to this. And these are the big tech companies. Google and Facebook, they don't want this sort of Bill, even though other states have one have bills very similar to this. And the reason they don't want it is that they want to be able to monetize your Internet activity without your consent without notifying you. And these big tech companies obviously are no friends at conservatives. There are no friends of America. They're basically foreign companies that call themselves American companies that come in and commercialize the most private communication and activity of our citizens and in particular our young people. So tell me what's one of the most shocking things you learned about this big Tech Data collection over the last two years. It's crazy Charlie. I mean, I'm in my freshman term. I've been doing this for two sessions now, so I'm still sort of new, but, you know, I filed this bill with huge support from the governor and the speaker of the Florida House. I follow this bill and I thought I would just be hearing from the big tech companies. But with a matter within a matter of hours of having filed this bill, I started hearing from way more. It wasn't just, you know, big tech and telecommunication companies. I started hearing from auto manufacturers and I started hearing from grocery chains. I started hearing from just the businesses and industries I wouldn't have initially thought, but as I said, it totally makes sense. I mean, everyone deals in data right now. The place where this bill steps in is the point at which I stop being the consumer. And I start being the product. What I buy goods and information goods and services from a company, we transact financially because I'm receiving something from them. But when companies then turn around and profit off of what they know about me, that's where this bill steps in and draws the line. And we're not even saying that businesses have to stop that. I think the world of online advertising, I appreciate a well delivered targeted ad. It shows me things that I, you know, I forgot to stock up on diapers. It's very helpful to get that little alert. But I think we just need to have a say in whether we're being profited off of. Well, yeah, it's all about consent. Yeah, if you don't like it, just don't engage in these services.

Unless you went to great lengths to pay in cash for everything, you know, not using ATM, walk in places that there were no cameras ever. I don't know how you exist in the world today without having companies collect information about you in some way or another. Yeah, that's exactly right. And look, these tech companies, they turn you into the product, only addictive drugs and social media called the people who use their products users, they're highly addictive to young people in particular. Talk about the generational component to this of how these tech companies really prey on young people and then they monetize them for the rest of their life. Your bill will make it much more.

"That, but I'm not going to create a political liability for you. So yeah, tell us more about the things that you're going to be fighting for in D.C. and some other things that you're really talking about your plan to become a senator. Look, first and foremost, our voters across the country in Nevada, they still wake up every single day in grave fear that the left is radically transforming our nation and as long as they have the ability with the president, the House and the Senate to materialize that leftist worldview. We are all in danger. The Senate could still go in tomorrow if they had the votes that could expand the Supreme Court. They could give D.C. and Puerto Rico statehood all the things they want to do, they could try to federalize our election and make every single state look like California. They could pass build back better. All these things that would radically transform our nation. So first and foremost, we must take back a majority. We must stop the Biden radical agenda in its tracks. But then once we're in office, you know, I hope to join the group to figure out how to be on offense in the United States. And it had a use committees to go after the Russia collusion, find answers once and for all what happened here. We know we've got the Durham probe going on, but in the end of the day, voters deserve to know what happened with these terrible things. They deserve to know what did Fauci know. What science did he really ignore as he continued to push the false COVID narratives that we dealt with over the last few years and so I hope we've learned from president Trump as well as from governor desantis and Florida, how to be a fighting party, how to fight against the leftist agenda. I know we got a long way to go there, Charlie, but I believe that I could be part of that young generation. I'm 43 to join some of our younger leaders that understand that the left must be defeated. We must destroy their radical ideology until we do that. We don't have a chance to save in this country. Yeah, and so that's a really important point, which is what we're going to do for investigations and to issue subpoenas and to really push forward the cause of transparency. And I know that there is going to be a massive fight that to hold people accountable and to actually get to the bottom of so many of these crimes that have been committed. From the people in power, Fauci being totally unchecked, an unelected, largely unchecked bureaucrat. And restoring constitutional governance and rights back to the states. And so what you're saying basically is that if you're elected senator, one of the things you're going to be given a mandate to is going to be able to use the oversight ability of the U.S. Senate to get answers that the people sorely need. Yeah, look, I am a prosecutor from a former attorney general. And I think being able to be on judiciary and some of these committees where we can go on offense. How about what they're doing to our military right now? I mean, have we really scratched the surface of what they're doing to woke afy our military, what they're doing to drive out service members through those mask mandates. This is some really, really dangerous stuff. And with the threats we face in the world, if we can't hold our military accountable, then I don't know who's one, I don't know who's going to sign up to be part of a military that people don't feel like they can trust the leadership. They don't feel like they can trust the commander in chief. And so oversight is essential to get major change. We know in the last few months that by giving voice to our side by exposing the left, we've forced them in retreat on a number of major issues. And so that's what I hope to be able to do to be a loud voice. In the United States Senate is a unique place where you can be allowed voice, but you know, I wouldn't stop there. Oversight is important for a lot of the bad things that Washington are doing. But we can't lose sight of the fact that the delegation problem in Washington is there a real and present danger to our constitutional government. And as long as our elected representatives keep giving these blank checks to these bureaucrats and these large agencies, we are going to continue to lose power. And it's something as an AG. I sued the Obama administration every week at China trying to peel back their executive orders and their unilateral direction and they're using whether it was department of interior or the EPA. These were their enforcement arms to try to do something beyond what they were democratically allowed to do and we need to get in there and hold these agencies accountable and hopefully we can actually come up with an agenda that passes bills that will rain in some of these out of control bureaucrats because my state has over 80% of our land is owned by the federal government. And so your listeners, when they hear that, people can't believe it. So you can imagine how important it is that we have oversight of these federal agencies and you know the Democrats, their policies cripple this state. They do not allow us to grow and it's something I intend to fight for. That's for sure. So Adam, how can people support you in closing here, your website and how can people get behind your campaign? Adam laxalt dot com and I'll tell you, you know, my opponent, she liked all of the Democrats that got unlimited left wing money. They were able to hit act blue and raise millions of dollars. I need a grassroots army of cross my state and across America to help get us across the line. And so I do ask for your support. We're endorsed for president Trump, desantis, the great one Mark Levin, all of our great conservatives are behind this campaign and I really ask your support again, Adam laxalt dot com. Great. Thank you so much, Adam. I've known you for years and we're a 100% behind you man. So congratulations and best of luck. I think you're gonna do really well. Thanks so much. Thanks, Charlie..

"To be found on the border at all. Let's talk about some other issues as well. The issue of education. This issue of parents getting more and more involved in their kids education has been something that really has created the parents party. I know that Nevada, there have been a lot of there's been a lot of commotion in the local school boards and getting people to challenge what's happening on a local and state level. Talk about the perspective you're going to have as a U.S. senator supporting this ever growing and exciting movement of parents fighting for their kids education. Well, I've spoken at school board meetings, joining massive numbers of parents that are willing to stand up for our kids. It's something that I'll continue to advocate for, including school choice, which I sued on, and we were able to get education savings account made constitutional in the state of Nevada. But let's not forget just how radical the Democrat party is right now. The Department of Justice that called our parents terrorists is the same Department of Justice that just lifted the Chinese espionage program quietly a few weeks ago. This is what we're dealing with with this administration and their priorities. Thankfully, parents ignored it. They continue to show up in droves and it's not just the fact that they're attacking parents, it's the policies of the last few years, which kept schools closed, which kept kids in masks until just a few weeks ago, and there was some there was an editorial for our largest paper, the talked about how there are hundreds of thousands of kids, especially in Las Vegas that will never get this time back. We all believe that education is your chance for opportunity. It's a chance at a better life. Democrats stole those two years from those kids. They'll never get them back. And I think parents are ready to really give the Democrats a message. They know who's responsible now. They can't blame Trump like they did in 2020. It was the Democrats policies that never needed to be. Florida kept their schools open the last few years, other states kept their schools open. Nevada went a different direction and our parents and our students suffered because of it. Yeah, so let's talk about some of those lockdowns, Nevada went further than almost any other state. You know, I visit Vegas every so often. The outside of Vegas, great people. I can't stand Vegas. It's an awful place. But I have to go there for conventions, and I have to go there for all sorts of different things. And the restrictions of the mask mandates and the enforcement of it. The lockdowns that accompanied it. Governor sisolak really went further than almost any other state for quite some time, especially in a state that is so focused on hospitality. Talk about that. Look, he's stood lockstep with governor Newsom. And nevadans know it. They know he didn't lead. They didn't go a different direction. He waited for Newsom in a few days later, whatever he did. We would get here in Nevada further evidence that the Nevada Democrats want to make us like California. And I'll tell you the media was absolutely terrible during COVID because they wouldn't ask the hard questions. They wouldn't ask why casinos could be open and churches would be closed. There is no explanation for that, but they would not ask, where was the science beyond that? And about two weeks ago. There was this big tide, all of a sudden, Democrat governors are having to change the heart and cis like out of nowhere, said, dear God. We're going to be the last state to lift these mandates and he quickly goes into a press conference, and we went on Tucker Carlson to call this out. That day, when he lifted these mandates, the entire state was still in the red based on their criteria and the infection rate was higher that day than when he put masks back on last summer. So there was no science to support this. He of course was not called out by the media. Just the political science, but the good news is that the people are on to it. They demanded the change and he had to respond to real voters, which includes independence, Democrats, the Hispanic community, we were all fed up with it, and it's about time and look, don't lose faith in Las Vegas. It's one of the greatest cities in the country and we're going to get back to what it was just a few years ago as soon as we get these Democrats out of office. Yeah, I'm not so sure about.

"Yeah, and so let's talk about the border, Nevada is not a border state, but it might as well be because, I mean, you're only maybe a 150 miles from the border at the southern tip of Nevada and you feel the damage of illegal immigration. I was just in Yuma, not too far from Nevada at all. And they were experiencing 50 people crossing across the border under Trump while over a thousand people a day coming across the border. And unprecedented invasion of our country. If elected senator, what will you do to push for border security? And really kind of make your perspective of in leadership in Nevada of Nevada as a border state. Well, first and foremost, we must return to the policies of the Trump administration remain in Mexico, finishing the wall. These are quite obviously solutions that made a difference heading into the Biden administration. But I like to zoom back a little bit when I talk to voters. Some of them put a uniform on and served both in the navy and in Iraq, you serve your country because nationhood means something. You're willing to put on a uniform and fight and die for a nation that we're willing to protect and an idea that actually is worth preserving and the Democrats have begun become the party that does not like America. They attack our sovereignty. This is dangerous for the future of our country. And now you see the tangible results of an open border with over a million people coming in. It's something that our country simply can't sustain our state can't sustain it. And again, where is senator masto. She likes to pitch yourself as a moderate, but guess what? She didn't join Manchin or Kristen sinema on any of these issues where we needed her. She stuck with her party. She sticks with open borders, and that's why I think that nevadans are going to be ready for a change here in November. So yeah, I mean, she's nowhere.

"So tell us about senator Cortez masto, who took thousands of dollars from a Russian pipeline lobbyist. The topic of energy is a huge topic, I'd love to hear kind of what the price of per gallon is in Nevada. I'm sure it's gone up significantly, and we're just entering driving season right now. It seems as if that senator Cortez masto tries to put herself as sort of like a moderate senator, but she's anything but that. Yeah, look, the triple-A guidelines just came out Nevada is third behind only California and Hawaii. And we've been fighting this California of Nevada for a very long time, but guess what? A lot of our stats look very similar to California, thanks to a Democrat governor, two democratic legislatures, Democrat president, two Democrat houses, and so unlike 2020 or the media helped to try to point the finger at any problems that president Trump, there's nowhere to blame to shift blame now. Lies squarely with Democrats, voters have to know that by now. And yes, not only gas prices are soaring, but energy prices are soaring. Of course, all of the inflation is hitting pocketbooks and senator masto is along with the left. She refuses to stand for our state against President Biden against the left. She will look to voters and she will tell them she's a moderate, but for example, today she finally comes out about three hours after President Biden says she supports banning Russian oil. Dead silent for the last many weeks, we've been talking about this for now many weeks, but she leads from the back and I might add that, you know, just calling for the banning of Russian oil is not the solution. It must come with energy independence, which she still dead silent on because she's beholden to her super green base that wants to trade livelihood, pocketbooks, for this radical agenda. I think voters aren't going to be tricked this time around. I think that they're seeing it in real life. And again, this issue, along with many other issues, we have a perfect opportunity to contrast with the Democrats. And if I could go a little further on the contrast between masto and myself, she was a former attorney general. 8 years, I was a former attorney general as well. Well, she campaigned on being the queen of anti human trafficking. In fact, an ad yesterday trying to tout her credentials on it. Guess what she's not standing up for right now? A secure border. The border is leading to an all time spike in human trafficking, child trafficking, drug trafficking in our state. She knows better, but she can't speak out against her open borders base and we do not plan on letting her get away with it the same goes with BLM and a lot of these defund the police. The no bail movement, she's been dead silent on these issues. She's been waiting for permission from Biden to be able to start flipping as we saw in the State of the Union last week, but voters will not be tricked. They know that she has not stood with them for the last many years when we needed her..

"So Adam, some people have their doubts about a Republican winning statewide in Nevada, something you've done before. But tell us about how you think this year it can actually be done. I mean, Clark county, it's a beast. There's a lot of fraud, a lot of corruption, a lot of dead voters that are still on the rolls. Why do you feel this year? You're going to be able to conquer that giant. Yeah, first, I have one state wide on the former attorney general of the state. We won in 2014 when we had a red environment and I think that people need to understand that even in these slightly blue tilting years, this race has been this state has been razor thin. Trump lost the battle by two points, it's been well documented. That's with them changing our election, giving us mail in ballot, ballot harvesting all that kind of stuff. Senator masto only won by two points in 2016. Harry Reid was the majority leader in 16. You can't imagine how much how many chips he called in to get her in the office. And so we have the perfect opportunity and a state that has been ever so slightly blue to flip this seat in one last thing, the vaunted Harry Reid machine has slowly but surely been crumbling and the Democrats socialists and I don't mean that as just a tagline. They're actually self described and self named socialist took over the Democrat party here in Nevada. They invite the likes of Elon Omar to be guest speakers in our state. All these things make it prime for us to take the message to the voters and flip Nevada in

Because you know, even if we're not buying something ourselves, we want to kind of live by. Curiously, through our friends, people we know of the guns that they bought or something cool that they got. Tim just did that He called in from Nevada and one Tim, would you get Tell you what I couldn't. I got a great opportunity through Wilson combat among their mailing list, And they said, by the way we had to distributor that cancelled. We have some a R s that were selling and we'll give you a discount on them. And so I left on that I'm having a protector Ask are being 5.56. 16 inch barrel 1138 Twist. Um 15 inch rail. Um, finish on it there. And two states trigger and I can't wait. And here's the thing. Here's the real deal with Bill Wilson. Every single time I called their customer service. I've just been Florida and how Phenomenal They are. They're just on their on their game. Um, because I had to call back. On a Monday. I had ordered that on a Sunday night call back on Monday to add some sites. I wanted some flip up sights to it, and I was buying through them, of course. Yeah, I didn't even have I didn't even have to give my name or anything. They already from my phone number had my whole order up there knew everything about What was coming down the down the line what they had and It's just a great experience dealing with them. Oh, is it really what else did you get from Wilson Combat. I have to eat Dcx nine. Oh, well, talk to me because I've been looking at that. And you know for those who don't know Wilson combat Bill Wilson, Uh, one of the premier gunmakers and making come up with cool concepts and really good stuff. It's not cheap. It's high end, but it's really good. It's reliable. But I've been looking at that pistol. So how long ago did you get that? Building all over a year ago, I think, and I have not taken it to the range as much as I want because of hammer costs, and so on. I just seem to be kind of stingy with that. But managed to put over 500 rounds through it, and it just performs magnificently and It's a great package to carry for truly for e. D. C. They've come out now with a smaller model to a little bit more compact, and I've been pleased with this one and They're just great. And the other thing of I know Time's limited. I just want to let your audience know too, that his his YouTube channel hasn't been banned yet. He's got some phenomenal videos out there. Um in the kitchen, Hack Thorn. Doing a load, you know, saying, Hey, look, here's a low round count skill drill for you or transition from car being a pistol. You know animals expensive. It's hard to get Here's how you can do it with limited number of rounds, and it was brilliant, you know, and And so I just wanted to make make that resources available for your audience, isn't it when when you find a company like Wilson Combat, and thing is that is actually not unusual within the firearms world to find a company that stands behind their stuff. Now, obviously, there are smaller company and when you call there, you get people who are very knowledgeable. It's not like you know, you will, eventually with Ruger, but you're going to have to work your way through and find the right person, which is not difficult, but you'll get there. Uh, but it's just cool when you have companies like this, But you know, I want to go to one thing You said you're on the mailing list. They had a special and they sent the information out to the people in the mailing list, and I want to get people to understand that a lot of times there are deals like that to be had and they go away really fast. So you need to be on the email mailing list of companies that you are interested in so you can take advantage of that, right? That's precisely right. And and it's saved me 25% off of that which not unsubstantial wow costs that weapon and, um and friends so funny because it's one of those things where a week before I was literally Considering buying one for paying for rate and so I figured out what it must be meant to be. It's got to be meant to be. You get the email you go. Yeah, we're going to do this. Just click the thing right now, Just buy it Make it happen. Very good, Tim.

"Thirteen twenty fifteen twenty seventeen thousand nineteen now twenty twenty one for her last five terms in congress california democratic congresswoman. Judy chu has introduced the same bill. A simple bill which has been promoted by democratic politicians including presidents for a generation. Now a bill to codify the protections for abortion rights that are supposedly enshrined by roe versus wade. Which the united states supreme court has now jettisoned before now. Judy chu has been introducing this every two years but has been going anywhere now of course everybody is paying attention to what congresswoman shoe has been trying to do for the better part of a decade better late than never joining us. Now is congressman. Judy chu democrat of california. She's the lead sponsor of a bill to protect abortion rights. Bill that speaker pelosi has now promised the house will take up and pass as a first order of business when they return later this month congresswoman shoe. Thank you so much for being here. I know this is a an intense time. Thank you for having me. Tell us about your determination to try to get this past. You have been pursuing this in a single minded way for years now even as you've had so many democratic co-sponsors so much frankly lip service support that this is an important thing but no no effort no momentum to actually get it done before now. What first of all let me say that. There's a very dedicated group of members of congress that have been pushing for this law as well so it certainly isn't just me. I just have the privilege of being able to lead this effort. it has been important because Starting in two thousand eleven. We saw these states doing these anti abortion laws that were restricting access by requiring a certain width of the doors or doctors to be admitted at hospitals. Where there's no relevance or requiring waiting periods ultrasound to separate visits to clinics and we knew we had to have an overall solution that would indeed make the protections of roe versus wade into law by establishing a federal statutory right for patients to receive and providers to provide abortion care three from these medically unnecessary restrictions at single out abortion and impede access. This bill will indeed do this. I have to say though that we have gotten more and more co sponsors and actually In this last congress we had the greatest number of cosponsors two hundred and sixteen members of congress that was imported it and it in fact we actually had the most pro-choice congress in history. And we did this bill knowing that the day would come when there would be a draconian bill like sba that the supreme court would let go into law and undermine roe versus wade so i am so grateful that finally we are bringing it to the floor. I'm so grateful to speaker pelosi. And i'm grateful that president biden is indeed Supporting the right for a statutory Kind of of improvement to the roe versus wade debate with two hundred and sixteen co sponsors and with speaker pelosi now backing this effort and her commitment to it today to get it done i have i have. I believe that this can pass the house democratic majority in the house speaker. Pelosi behind it and that kind of those kind of numbers. You're going to get there. Are you also working on bicameral strategy. Obviously there are arguably a few. Maybe two democratic senators who are explicitly. Anti-choice joe manchin and senator casey There's others that i can't speak to. In terms of their commitment to the issue there are also at least a sensibly republican senators. Who say they are for upholding the protections overseas wade setting aside the issue of the filibuster for now and whether or not the filibuster will survive this challenging time in our nation's history. Do you believe that it's possible to even cobbled together. A fifty vote majority in the senate to pass it. I do balut. Do believe that it's possible. And let me say that. Since the beginning of the introduction of this bill we've had an incredible partner an incredible champion. And that is senator richard blumenthal who introduced the senate version of this bill. Since the beginning and he has been working to get the co-sponsors he actually has forty eight co-sponsors on the senate side. We also know that there are two republicans that are a pro choice and so we have the ability to get somewhere on this besides the fact that the country is more galvanized than effort because of this disturbing and chilling bill that would turn private citizens into vigilante bounty hunters against anybody who helps a woman who wants to have an abortion doctor staff members at clinics counselors people who help pay for the procedure. Even an uber driver taking a patient to an abortion clinic could be subject to this ten thousand dollar fine. Private citizen could go after all of them and make quite a living actually congresswoman judy to lead sponsor of the bill to protect abortion access. But speaker has promised to take up later this month in the house spin leading this effort for years it is now going to. It's it's now going to move congressman shoe. Thank you for keeping us apprised. I imagine we'll be back talking to you about this in day. Is the bill moves. Thank you i will tell you what congresswoman shoe was just saying there two hundred and sixteen co sponsors in the house forty eight co-sponsors in the senate plus a couple of republicans who say their pro choice for that puts a spotlight on it doesn't it the senate keeps the filibuster. Nothing can happen along. This line. let alone voting rights. Let alone all the other things. But if the senate was willing to revise the filibuster was willing to change that law. One of the things that could happen is that roe versus wade could be codified.

"Going this Thursday morning in the nation's capital coming up in 30 minutes, we're going to speak with a home school advocate here in D. C. A huge number of parents decided to homeschool their kids in the District of Columbia Police. Bernard of Surviving Homeschool joins us in 30 minutes Chelsea Buller has been keeping this company all morning long from independent women's Forum. Kelsey. Thanks for being here, it's my pleasure, and and it's my honor actually to bring in our former secretary of education Betsy DeVos to the conversation. We speak so much about our government run schools about our voice as taxpayers and as parents and advocates for our Children at the school board meetings and at every level of public education. So, Madam secretary. It's great to talk with you because there's so much to get to. And I'm so glad we got you for two segments. So thank you again. Well, thanks So much for having me Larry. It's a pleasure to be with you this morning. Kelsey as well. I'm going to start with a bit of a maybe unorthodox question. You know, for many years now, as many Republican presidential candidates run for office, they vow that they want to do away with the Department of Education. They think it does more harm than good as a former secretary of education, in retrospect, looking at how that, uh, that that office works and how the Department of Education works. Where do you stand on that? Is there still a role for a federal Department of Education? Or do you think our public schools will be better off without it? Well, Larry I was on record, saying I would be very happy to work myself out of the out of a job. I believe that the Department of Education, which was stood up by former President Jimmy Carter, in 1979, as a payoff to the teachers unions. That year, it was stood up 40 plus years ago. And it has spent over $1 trillion at the federal level alone trying to close the achievement gap between kids in K 12 education at the top of the scale and at the bottom. And what we've discovered is not only has it not narrowed that gap one little bit. It's actually widened in most measures, and so the Department of Education does not, I think have a long term role. What we need to be doing is returning the power and control to the local level two states. And most importantly, giving the control to parents and what we've seen in the last year year and a half. I think a lot of parents have awakened to this to this reality and are actually really pushing for it in new ways. Secretary DeVos. I couldn't agree with you more. Thank you. So much for taking the time to chat with us about this issue, I think which I think is at the root of most of the issues were seen in America today Education, But I want to take a moment to address a local issue to D. C. The D C Opportunity Scholarship program. This is a school choice program specifically for low income families in the district. To give their Children vouchers to attend a school of their of their choice. I've had the honor of interviewing and featuring, uh, some young students who have greatly succeeded. Thanks to this program. The statistics are there to back up its success yet we are now hearing That Democrats want to take away this option from from poor Children in the district. Where why are they even trying to do this? When this one? Statistically, this program has been a wild success? Well, calc. It's a really good question, and I think the simple answer is they're beholden to the teachers unions. The teachers union doesn't like it, so therefore they are going to fight it every step of the way. The Obama administration did try to kill it. Try to phase it out The Trump administration. As you know, restored it, expanded it and gave more opportunities. And we know we now know the Biden administration is on record, saying this has got to be phased out. 11,000 scholarships have been awarded through this program and more than 90% of the graduates of the program are going or accepted to two or four year colleges compared to only 39% of kids in the traditional D C public schools and, you know, importantly, the average income for families participating in the program was last year was under $24,000 a year. Kids who are taking advantage of this program are benefiting big time. And it is just just horrible that the Biden administration would seek to face this out to deny kids these opportunities, and even the Washington Post just a couple of days ago editorialized in favor of keeping this program. And asking why the unions and Democrats are opposed, so opposed to giving poor Children a choice in schooling. It is a microcosm of what's going on across the country. The teachers unions are at the root of it all defending the status quo, defending their power their territory and denying kids opportunities they need for a successful future. That beautiful Michigan accent, which I know very well coming up from the Lavonia area in Wayne County, is one of Betsy DeVos. She is the former secretary of education. And and Mr Boss, You mentioned the teachers union. Here's Randi Weingarten last week. You know her? Well, the President American Federation for Teachers, she was addressing the controversy over critical race theory, instruction and curriculum here. Listen, there are legislators, mostly from the Republican Party who are currently bullying teachers and trying to stop us from teaching kids, honest history. Teaching kids on it. They're calling it honest history. Now this critical race theory perspective, The 16 19 Project union is supposed to look out for their members, their wages their pensions. What makes them in charge of the curricula about what is being taught in these schools? That's not their role. I didn't elect her. Well, a very good question. And the A and the F T have continued to wade into subject areas that.

"You got an irish state in part of ireland. So the two state solution as it were which is not completely implemented even yet or not is still dynamic. Came one hundred twenty years after annexation after it became a one state. One vote person actually for men so i don't rule out in the far future that could be two states in palestine but that's not to see it has a solution essy's what we have here is a one st reality and when i about the paradigm what. A paradigm is in science whether it's social science or natural signs is that it tells you what the stuff of the world is like. What on policy is like what is real. And the two state solution paradigm communicated that. What's real state of israel within the green line and territories that it holds next to it in their land of israel in palestine which are not part of the state if that is real then it's natural to think in what becomes of those territories is not necessarily the same thing is what becomes israel in how people are treated in. Those territories is not the same questions. How people were treated in israel but most states in the world are governed in ways that all the people within them are not governed equally in all the areas within them are not covered in the same rules if you see the land between the river and the terrain ian as one state in which the populations and districts are ruled differently by different rules which is very normal then all of a sudden that ontological reality that it is one st not to leads to a host of new implications just ask really any reversal in science from one paradigm to the absence of a paradigm or to a new paradigm completely changes. The questions that are important to ask whether you see gravity as a some kind of mysterious attraction between bodies as newton did or whether you see it as a reflection of the curvature of space leads to enormous differences including atomic bomb for example just impossible to count how many differences there are. This is true. I'm trying to argue in my book if you look at it that way. Why all of a sudden for two staters settlements for example one more settlement of west bank is always a catastrophe. Always something to jump up and down about e- one especially the area near jerusalem which would be settled. It said we'll permanently separate the west bank into two parts thereby making a two-state solution impossible but if it's already impossible than another set of settlements no matter where they are don't matter that's not important from a progressive political point of view looking forward to peace and democracy and equality among jews and palestinians was important for example. Might be that. There's more room for error abs to live the galley because more jews living in the west bank was important discrimination wherever it exists inside of the areas ruled by israel the trump plan for example which was ridiculous in most ways. And i've written about that..

"A very pretty picture and there are. It's one of many. You can actually draw pretty picture of a one person. One vote or of eighteen cantons or of federation or confederation with jordan israel. There are many pretty pictures that can be generated. And there's a reason to generate them but they're not solutions. A solution is a pretty picture or prettier than the present. And you know a way to get there this feasible. A political pass away that the interests of enough groups would lead them to that solution in a way that generates strategies and tactics to achieve it. That's what's gone. The pretty pictures still remains it used to be when the path to it was available that that pretty picture served progressive purpose that enhance prospects for peace justice into moxie and as much equality as possible but once it became so implausible as it is now to achieve negotiated path toward that then the pretty picture the allegiance to that pretty picture. Mistaking it for a solution. Actually league has a counter effect. It has a very baleful effect because it serves the interests of those who think that the current situation of no political representation to palestinians complete power in the hands of jews. Who don't have to defend it as an apartheid system because they can always say is just temporary. That is the function right now of adherence to the to state kennedy picture as if it is a solution is to serve the interests of those silent. Apartheid's cycle yeah. I mean i think the burning question here in many ways and it's titan fundamentally with with the way they wish. The book is framed writing a paradigm lost. Is that you have outlined. And you've begun to say a bit here about the ways in which a certain proposal right a certain kind of set of ideas like you said a pretty picture of what the future might look like became kind of hegemonic became hegemonic over the discourse debate surrounding the question of how to resolve the conflict in israel palestine and that in many ways we have perhaps moved out of that orbit because of the developments of the past twenty five years or so with this in mind a quick word. About what do you mean when you talk about this idea that it was a paradigm we no longer have access to that paradigm and ultimately. What does this mean in terms of the question of whether or not a two state solution so to speak is still possible today for which it sounds that you are fairly pessimistic about the possibility for that. I'm certain that that although it's possible for their eventually to be two states in palestine in israel the won't come about through negotiations between israel and palestinians might come about for example as the irish republic came about which was a partition of the united kingdom. But how did that happen. Britain ruled ireland's a colony for hundreds of years in eighteen hundred it a next ireland in a next ireland made change the name of the country the united kingdom of great britain and ireland after thirty years of struggle. Some irish catholic scott political representation. After eighty years of struggle the irish mobilized enough in british politics to become the bellwether the focus of the irish question british politics who could make or break many governments and by the end of world will one after.

"Divisive question facing the movement partly because it implied how much territory would be involved in jewish state it only was really after nineteen sixty seven that the idea of a two-state solution became very very prominent on the arab side. But it's almost an arithmetical logic. Once you assume that there are two peoples in a land and neither of them is going to be removed. The idea of dividing the land makes a lot of sense especially if there is a historical patterns of dense populations of the two different parts. One of the things that we have to keep in mind however is it just because an idea remains prominent that its remaining prominent because it's actually acceptable in attainable. Sometimes an idea is made prominent because it's useful for the sides for to be prominent even though it can't be attained or isn't even something that decides want to attain for example to go back to the late twenties and early thirties when success zionism was quite questionable the question of some kind of by national formula or apparently formula that would allow zionism to grow but within an overall arab state or a mixed state became something. They've been going supported right now. It sounds odd to read. Ben gurion speeches in that period when he talks favorably about parody in about by nationalism. But when you look closer you see that he was only saying that because the idea of being attainable was useful as long as he didn't have the power to strive for jewish state and he thought that would take a few more years in a lot more jewish immigrants which by the mid nineteen thirties he got and never turned back from the idea of the jewish state. So what's really changed now. Is that those who argue for a two state solution. Almost all of them are very well aware that there is no path to a negotiated two-state solution as there used to be that is. There's no constellation of political interests that can be identified that would sustain itself in a winning coalition on both sides simultaneously to achieve a negotiated solution on that basis..

"State. The obvious that all people are created on have a right to be treated equally throughout their lives, never lived up to that two. State TV it to state. The obvious, David says. Joe Biden is right. David Hi. How are you done? Good for you. I'm fine, Good. Uh, yeah. See? Stating what? Uh, stating what Commenting on what your body says. If you look to the history of America That, uh People of color. Whether the Asians or ask Americans or native Americans have not received the same treatment by the judicially or economically or Socially. That people's not color every seat. I'm really perplexed it how you make a blanket condemnation while and I've certainly would would spend all day agreeing with you that there are all kinds of instances of racism there. Instances of bigotry, hatred? Of course, you're so right that there are people that have been discriminated against. When you say people have never Or you're saying that every single minority has always been discriminated against in America. Now we're getting into semantics, Mike. Well, I'm not. It's importantly, you either think this country is greater You don't And you think that that that racism doesn't define us or you do. Right? Is that fair? I think they says in the does define, but you do And I don't think I don't think that America is any longer the greatest country in the world because of because of the examples of racism that you've cited a country. Incidentally, just the throw out a few things. I mean, I could throw out a list but just just most recent memory we elected a black man president twice. That count for anything? Well, that was a world of people. That was what It was a little of the people, the same people it there are gray zones here. It's not everything is not is not entirely well, That's my point. It's not. That's what I'm trying to say to you. It's not all or nothing. You said. We've go ahead. You have you just said systemically. We've just discriminated against people of color. And then you just turn around said, But we can't say it's all or nothing. It's not everything and there's great here. It. It is there is there are great because if if if it was black point, and what this would be South Africa with the apartheid all over again, But it's not. It's not that bad. In that degree, It's not that we're not quite as bad as South Africa and apartheid. But you must think we're close. In in some in some ways, Yes. Yeah, I'll give you a promise. I'll give you a promise sample wasn't that long ago? It was a 1992 of us. I was trained horses and I was traveling from Election in Touch Lexical Lexington, Kentucky, Florida I was driving along with it with the wake it we stopped someplace in their world. Georgia was off world Georgia at a service station to forget Walked in, walked in with the guy. There were only two people in store the first and I guess one of the someone else who was working there. We got a better drinks. He paid for the gas. He was standing in line in front of me. Wonderful conversation between the clerk and on my friend, okay? I want to find water behind them placed my items on the counter. I had to put my money on the counter because they would not take the money from my hands. The change that I was given was thrown onto the counter right. That was Not even 30 years. I got it Does that to find America showing showing act that a terrible act of bigotry that you experienced 30 years ago? You believe that defines the United States of America, David? It's a piece of diverse it is the almost wedding look for subcutaneous. It's not. Is it someplace that bubbles up to the top? Like where bubble? What bubbles? I mean, listen, I remember when I first got a job in South Carolina and I witnessed a black guy coming to get his car inspected. This probably was 25 years ago. There was that was when you got your car's inspected at the grass at the gas station, and I went in to get my car inspected. They were inspecting my car. Black guy comes in. And the guy at the service station tells the black guy. Sorry. We're not expecting any more cars today. And the black guy says Okay, drives away and then another white guy pulled in. And of course, they respected his car. And David. It stayed with me. It'll stay with me. I'll never forget it. I was witnessing in real time with my own eyes. Now what I did with that is understand that there is bigotry. And evil and awful stuff that happens in the in the world. I don't believe it defines the United States because even the reaction to George Floyd's death Have you heard anybody anywhere? Shea has okay with me. Not that big a deal. Everybody universally was shocked to the core was disgusted was mortified was heartbroken, was angry. And she you yet? Not everyone, really? Because I actually because I did actually watch because unlike most most of most what you would consider liberal, I do. Listen, I listen to your program. Thank you Interfering. Okay, listen to dance. All right, Tell me Tell me the people who defended this. Tell me the people who weren't disgusted by George Boyd's death. Can't remember the person that this is a person, David. I don't mean to jump on you here. But do you understand? You're saying the person and then you say that defines America. In other words, It seems to me you're let me finish my point. You're smart guy. You're a bright guy here. I beg you to hear me. Your you believe until every shingle, bigoted person or thought or action is wiped away. We're never going to be a great country Is that fair? No, that's not fair. So what do you say? I believe I believe that when it becomes the exception rather than the rule, then will become all right. I want you to be honest with me. You'll be truthful with me. You think any dimwit who doesn't realize how awful George Floyd's death was? Is the rule or the exception? I think I think that that is the, uh it should be the exception. You do? Do you think most people in America? You think America the country that you seem to have such a dim view of do you honestly think that anybody who could have defended or excused the awful death of George flight? You think they're the rule? That's typical. No. All right. Well, then we're onto something because you know what you're talking about. Exceptions and you're talking about aberrations. And you're not talking about what defines this country and I think you know it. And if you think it through David, Trust me, I'm with you. We got a long way to go. There's a lot of things we we can and should do better when you compare us to apartheid when you and I don't doubt that That's your real real view. It's just it's just sad. Cause you want to discount the vast majority of people who don't have a racist bone in their body. The vast majority of Americans who love our fellow man, the vast majority of Americans who are Repelled, repelled, repulsed by bigotry and hatred, the vast majority of Americans who lift each other up and instead you go to an incident 30 years ago or an incident from me 25 years ago and you say, See, there was bigotry and that defines this country. That's why you hear Joe Biden say We've never never lived up to the promise. And you agree with him, and it makes me very, very sad. I hope you'll you'll reconsider your view. David. I appreciate the exchange. Thanks, 17.
