Will 2024 Be a Walk in the Park for Donald Trump?
"Left? Is it going to be a walk in the park for you in 2024? Because they seem to be doubling down and getting everything wrong in the last 16 months. Well, the very vicious and they fight very much harder than we had, we had Bill Barr. He didn't want to be impeached, so how do you not get impeached? Don't do anything. And you know, when somebody like that says that, oh, no, the election was just fine. And then you watched 2000 mules, or you watch many other things, too. Well, you just look at the proof. Look at Arizona. Look what happened with the audit. Look even the attorney general who is very weak, very weak in Arizona because he showed this massive fraud that was presented to him by the Senate and others. He showed this massive fraud and irregularities. And then he goes, we can't let it happen again. Well, what about taking care of the stuff that happened? Not just saying we can't let it happen again. So he's gone way down in the polls now because of that people are very unhappy about it. But if you look at Georgia, if you look at Pennsylvania where there are subpoenas all over the place, if you look at Wisconsin with the nursing homes where almost everybody voted, but historically very few people vote in nursing homes because they have other problems, frankly. But you look at what happened in Wisconsin with the nursing homes and other things. It's an take a look at Racine Wisconsin. The sheriff, there's a real patriot. Take a look at Racine Wisconsin, where the sheriff went out. He went to see if it was true. And he said, it's far worse than I ever anticipated. Not better, but far worse. No, we have corrupt elections that we have open borders. You know, nobody would have thought this. I always said, you need strong borders to have a country. Well, we have the worst part is we had the best borders in the history of our country two years ago. Now we have the worst borders in the history. And the other thing we have is corrupt elections.
What Lead to the Stolen Election of 2020?
"I'm going to listen now just some of the usurpations that have occurred in our time. The stealing of the election from Donald J Trump. I read, I don't know how many months ago it had to be right after the election. Over 20 anomalies on Dennis's show I read this that had to occur for president Trump to lose. And I remember 3 a.m. like a lot of people wrote to me on election morning, I went to sleep thinking this is pretty good. President Trump is going to win. This has to happen. I remember thinking to Wisconsin and this has to happen in Michigan. And this has to happen in Pennsylvania. He's got this down unless I think I thought of this unless they do something. Lastly, play around. I thought of that that very night. The excellent documentary 2000 mules confirms what I was confident had happened. And to cement their pyrrhic victory, what do they do? These thieves use January 6th to arrest and even put, can you believe in this country? Put people in solitary confinement. Those who asked for a redress of grievances,

"The Food and Drug Administration's chief says the shuttered baby formula factory at the heart of a national shortage could reopen as soon as next week The abbot plant in Michigan has been closed since February due to contamination issues FDA commissioner Robert califf faced tough questions from a house panel about why it took months for the agency to investigate whistleblower warnings in the fall about safety violations Why did the FDA not spring into action Caleb told Connecticut's rosa de lauro and others he can't say much for now We have an ongoing investigation about the details Wisconsin's Mark pocan says that's unacceptable You can talk about it honestly You should talk about it Abbott says it could take about two months for a new formula to hit store shelves once production resumes
Elementary School Sues Students Over Pronoun Blunder
"Because this is really disturbing. A Wisconsin school district. According to the New York Post, has filed sexual harassment complaints against three middle schoolers for calling a classmate by a wrong pronoun. The school district, it's in keel 3600 residents there. It's charging three 8th graders imagine that. At the middle school was sexual harassment after an incident in April in which the students refused to use they to refer to a classmate who would switch pronouns just a month before this alleged incident. I mean, come on, guys. Come on, I mean, you know that we have a problem as a nation. When instead of focusing on things like baby formula and making sure the supply chain is there so that our infants aren't starving, when we're focused on things like using the right pronoun and it's sexual harassment if you don't, because somebody just recently decided to switch pronoun, I mean, come on.
Peter Doocy Inquires Why Biden Goes to Buffalo, Misses Waukesha
"Peter doocy remains my hero, the Fox News White House correspondent. If you remember yesterday's show, I said I sure hope Peter doocy asks. Jean Pierre, the new White House press secretary, why is Biden rushing to buffalo when he didn't go to walk a Shaw? Wisconsin. Well, maybe he's listening because he did. How can the president is visiting buffalo after a senseless tragedy there, but he couldn't visit block a shot after 6 were killed and 61 injured in an attack on a Christmas parade there. I mean, he's visited many communities, buffalo, he was, you know, he's able to go tomorrow to buffalo. Before the trip, that is something that was important for him to do. But he has visited many other communities. This is not buffalo is not the first community sadly that he has to go up to because of a violent attack. So that's not the first one. So he's been to many others. Now that's comedy. Yeah, because there's been a lot of black men mowing over white Christmas parade goers. That's happened a lot. He just didn't happen to go to that

Caller Shares His Story From Waukesha Christmas Parade Tragedy
"Tell me what you think about the difference between buffalo, you experienced it. I'm sure you being part of that awful day. I'm sure it will be, you'll carry that with you forever. Give me your perspective as somebody who was a part of that awful awful evil act in walker Shaw Wisconsin. Well, I mean, it was just utter chaos and disbelief. And it's a very, very conservative community. And there has been not one writing one anything on radio about this was a devout Democrat that wanted to kill white people. Not one thing like that. In fact, the only thing that happened from The White House was a comment from the press secretary, giving us condolences for our losses. I was literally a foot and a half away from the police officer that was shooting at this vehicle. I was with a girl's girl scout troop that was marking in the freight. Fortunately, we were at the very beginning of the parade. And we were veering off to get off the parade route when the vehicle ended his debacle crap. It was ridiculous. But it was just unbelievable. And ironically, I have been summoned to appear as a juror for his trial coming up in October. Say that again, you were what? I was summoned to be on the jury for his trial coming up in October. So are you going to be on the jury? Well, I had to fill out a 200 page question here and one of the questions was, were you in that parade? And of course I had to answer. Yes, so I don't know, but maybe you'll be able to be disqualified. I
The 'Fact-Checkers' of '2000 Mules' Are Out of Their Depth
"When I'm seeing sort of two weeks into 2000 mules, a number of critiques in the movie initially, it was just the fact checkers, and the fact checkers clearly were out of their league. They had a very limited understanding of geo tracking and B had a very limited understanding of state laws, which vary on elections and so, for example, they would say things like, well, vote harvesting is legal. Well, no. What harvesting is not legal everywhere. It's legal in some states, and even in states that allow it, the conditions are normally quite restrictive. So my question is for the fact checkers, did you look at the ballot harvesting law in Wisconsin? Did you look at it in Michigan in Pennsylvania? Did you look at the nuances of these laws? No, the answer is no. So the 20 and 30 something fact checkers are kind of in too deep.
Biden Heads to Buffalo... But Never Visited Waukesha
"Mean, look at the headline and Rolling Stone. This is an actual headline. From Rolling Stone, the buffalo shooter isn't alone wolf. He's a mainstream Republican. He's a main stream Republican. And then, of course, the headline Biden headed to buffalo. Biden had to walk a Shaw diddy. He didn't go to walk a show Wisconsin when a black supremacist who hates white people, wanted to murder a bunch of white Christmas parade goers. I guess his schedule was a little filled, then maybe he was worried about COVID then. Maybe he was just concerned about catching COVID. Had nothing to do with the optics of a black man murdering white people, but he likes the optics of a white man murdering black people. I hate my cynicism.
Catherine Engelbrecht: Investigation Moving Forward After '2000 Mules'
"We are moving forward in investigations in Arizona. And we are thrilled. I mean, just yesterday, you the county put out a press release that they now have in addition to the two they've already have under indictment. There's 16 more that they've just announced. And so we are thrilled about that. We are seeing progress in Georgia. It's Georgia is a politically charged environment right now, and there are on the Republican side. There are camps fighting against each other one that wants to see this investigation proceed and the Kemp, the Brian Kemp camp that wants to bury it. And so that's a challenge. But we're working through it yet and it's also progressing in Wisconsin. We have a couple of law enforcement efforts in quite there. So yes, it's all going well. And then what's next beyond Leon that is something that we're calling pulling the rip cord and frankly Sam maybe the thing I am most excited about because I'm an activist and I know the power of citizen engagement. And pulling the rip cord means we are going to take all of the data that we have and release it publicly for the purpose of crowdsourcing and further research.
Chris Farrell and Sebastian Discuss the Deep State
"Now there's a double whammy here because in the beginning, it would be big enough challenge for legacy national security architectures like the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, to suddenly switch targets and say, okay, it's not the Soviet Union, but we have to deal with cultural marxists who are American in America trying to undermine America. That would be hard enough because that's like trying to get a, you know, an ocean liner to become a catamaran. But then there's the double difficulty when these institutions are captured by those self same neo Marxist next gen leftists, clearly, or at least when people like Mark milley or Christopher at the FBI parrot, the verbiage for people. Correct. And this is going to sound almost too personal, but I mean, so I'm going to say it anyway. There are two stupid to know the difference. They are so intellectually unpack that. That's really important. That's really important. And you have to know enough to be able to ask the question. And so when you choke down wholesale, the garbage put out by the 1619 Project. That white rage in America is founded on racism. And so the starting point is, yes, that's the starting point. Matt, well, what are you talking about? What does the foundation for what you're let me unwind your argument and really prove or disprove? And when you have Howard zinn of all people and his history book is probably the de facto go to history book in three quarters of the country's high school. The people's history, the Marxist lensed people's history of America. So that's your starting point. And you've brainwashed these people into believing, oh, I'll give you another great example. This is very superficial, but it's impactful. Since when are Republicans read that a vest is a bugbear for me. So let's unpack that. If you go back to Reagan's landslide victory and you look at all the news reporting, you show that they show the entire country blue, except for Wisconsin. I think it's Wisconsin. Yeah. Which is red because mondale wins his home state. But the red is always the color of the left. Every country of the globe.
A Dire Midterm Polling Update for Democrats with Richard Baris
"So, And okay, so heading into November, how do we feel? There's this Washington Post story that says that Democrats have now taken the lead on the generic ballot. Is that right? What does that mean? Do Republicans ever lead in the generic ballot? How do you think things are trending? It's still early, but where do you think we're kind of going to things are going to shake out coming into November? That poll along with YouGov fall is garbage. I'll just I'm going to get more aggressive as time goes on here because they have no shame. I mean, that is the poll that had Biden up by 17 points in the state of Wisconsin. And even in their own polling, when they asked, who do you trust more? To handle on the issues. On all of the top issues, Republicans have double digit leads. So I don't know how you have a 20 point lead for Republicans on trust to handle inflation. Inflation being the number one issue in your poll and yet Democrats have a one point lead. I mean, it's just, this is getting to the point of fraud. It really is. I mean, it's beyond we have polling disagreements. This is fraud. Yeah, I mean, I think that's, I think that's so smart. And I mean, inflation. So let's go through the issues. What are the top three issues Richard that you're seeing, not in California, like whatever, but in the districts that matter in the states that matter? What are the top three issues for voters right now? So we always ask, we say cost of living, you know, slash inflation because it means different things to different people. The economy and jobs, COVID is a single digit issue now. There was a time when crime and immigration were battling for number three. We're in the field this week. So we'll have brand new numbers soon. For that past that last month, national security and national security and foreign policy did tie for number three because what happened is that some of those crime and immigration voters with everything that was going on in Ukraine became interested in that. Now, strangely, that doesn't mean people favored more intervention in Ukraine, not at all. In fact, the many of them chose that issue because they were worried that Joe Biden may escalate it. So even on that issue in our polling, Republicans had a 17 point lead on national security voters on jobs in the economy. It was 21 points for Republicans but jobs in the economy and about 19 points for inflation. So again, this is the problem Democrats are going to have COVID healthcare. The environment. You know, things that people trust Democrats more on traditionally. They're just not at the forefront of people's minds. Even abortion, Charlie, which we've been hammering for 36 hours now, even abortion is not necessarily a democratic issue anymore. So it wasn't in Virginia, and they tried it the last minute to make that an issue. Glenn youngkin carried those voters up by 8 points. So it depends what district we're in, but generally it's gas, it's groceries. It's housing and shelter. You know, because we do ask specifically about cost of living.
Dinesh D'Souza: '2000 Mules' Reports on Electrion Fraud in 5 States
"What states are involved in this film where you have these meals Well we focus through the vote bought data in 5 states And not even for the whole state They bought the democratic urban areas in the states So it's Atlanta which encompasses about four counties And then on to Phoenix Maricopa County on to Detroit Michigan Milwaukee area of Wisconsin and finally the greater Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania This is where the 2020 election was decided And in each one of those instances there is video there is not video from all those states there's video from Georgia there's some video from Arizona There's some from Michigan in Wisconsin they were supposed to take video They said they would but they didn't But see that geo tracking evidence by itself is decisive and the reason mark is that all our cell phones have a unique and distinctive ID Now I can give my phone to my wife Debbie and maybe she's going to go from Dropbox to Dropbox But the fact that my cell phone was at that location is not open to dispute This exact same geo tracking was used to catch bin Laden It was used to arrest January 6th defendants It's used in law enforcement every single day If there's a murder in a park and it's completely dark and there's no cameras and nobody saw anything the cops will do geo tracking and say you know what there were 5 cell phones in that vicinity Let's figure out who those cell phones belong to Those are 5 suspects Let's start there So what I'm getting at is we're using a technology here that is completely familiar and used in
Can Republicans Take the Senate in November?
"Well, senator Rick Scott, you know, let's move on to a happier subject. What we're going to be able to do about this because I think we're taking back the Senate in November. Can you give the Hugh Hewitt radio program audience a preview of how you think next November is going to go? Here is where we are. We should be able to defend all we have. We have 21 Republicans up. We should be able to defend all those. Now, someone will be harder. We've added to Pennsylvania. We've got to defend North Carolina. We've got to defend probably the hardest of an incumbent is Ron Johnson and Wisconsin. But if you look at the quality of our candidates in the primaries, we got a lot of primaries that will come up in the next 30 days. We got great people in our primaries. We've done great incumbents running. So we just have to bust our butt every day. It's how you win races. I'm in a 50 50 state. You work every day and gosh, you have success. And where we have our pickup opportunities is one in Georgia. Is the Doug Jones of this cycle. A 100% what Biden Schumer and Bernie Sanders. And so we've got two we've got three good people in the primary. One of them is going to win right now, Herschel Walker's way ahead. We should be able to win there if we run good race.
Elon Musk Reaches Deal to Buy Twitter
"I'll be honest, I was cynical. I was very cynical leading into this. I was skeptical and cynical, I should say. To think that Elon Musk would be able to pull off a purchase of Twitter, seemed impossible. Albeit almost just incomprehensible. You see, we have grown conditioned to believe that the ruling class, the people in charge of our country, the elites, their largely untouchable. There's very little we could do to actually challenge their power. In fact, I was asked a question last week at university to Wisconsin Milwaukee with Candace Owens. And we both kind of had the attitude that it's very unlikely that Elon Musk will be able to pull this off. That Elon Musk, despite being the world's richest man, will be met with poison pill measures and backlash at every turn that Elon Musk will, despite having more money and more access to capital, he will struggle to be able to navigate the kind of deep state tactics of corporate America. But today, even though we've been very skeptical, it looks like this is more likely than not to happen. Twitter shares jump today on reports the company is nearing a deal with Elon Musk that could be announced as soon as today. Twitter's board met with Sunday to discuss Musk's financing plan for his proposed bid. The board negotiated with Musk into the early hours of Monday, according to The New York Times, their investment bankers are telling the Twitter board like you better look at this deal very carefully and closely because it is way overvalued way over what the company is actually valued at, which is closer to $30 a share. Musk is offering, I think, 42 to 43 to $44 a share upwards of $50 a share. The lawsuits, the backlash would have been overwhelming. And Twitter is left with really no choice. They would have been slammed with fiduciary complaints. I would have joined it as well as I own two shares of Twitter in case this goes to a tender offer. I want to be able to vote for Elon's takeover. And it looks like this deal could get
How Does Charlie Have So Much Energy?
"Charlie, how and where do you get all this energy to travel over the place and do these events at the same time be married and tend to your marriage and have time to do hillsdale courses? I'm just ashamed of myself and my time management. Thanks so much, shabu. So look, we do a lot and we don't we don't rest a lot. But, you know, we do three hours of radio a day, which translates to three podcasts a day. We do one on Saturday one on Sunday. Just this week, I had an event every single night except Monday. Kris kross in the country, not to mention the work we do at turning point USA. And running that and managing that, we have a great operational team thankfully that we've been able to put there, but also raising the money for turning point and our 250 plus full-time employees. So look, I don't sit still well. There's work to do. I mean, you got to make a decision in your life where you just kind of sit around and hope things get better. You're going to start to do things. And you will live a much more meaningful life if you act. You'll live a much more meaningful life if you figure out the teleological reason for existence, which is just a really fancy, unnecessarily academic way of saying the purpose. What is your purpose? And so we've definitely found ours. And it's a grind sometimes. Travel the country, you're in new places every single day. We're doing one event tonight and then we got the two tomorrow and next week will be in Fresno and we have not we only missed and it was mainly because of a tactic up one hour of radio this week. So we were on the entire week, we also did the event with the great Candace Owens, a university of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and that's coming off of last week where we did Berkeley boulder and Fullerton in a 72 hour window, and only missed one day of radio last week. So you guys helped make all that possible when you get behind our program and you help turning point USA and you help us. You subscribe to the Charlie Kirk, show podcast. Look, we're a podcast of action. And there's radio program of action. There's very few that are like that.
Why the 2022 Election Cycle Is So Important
"Let's talk about why this 2022 cycle is important. I think there's some overreaching discussions that we need to have. Number one is we're coming off of a 2020 cycle that frankly is still being litigated. In many ways. Now, not necessarily in reality, but in many ways it is being litigated because the problem is it came out of November 2022. Our 2020, I'm sorry, are coming to light more and more. You're hearing it here on the podcast, maybe you've seen it already 2000 mules by the national decisions at one of our Salem faculty here does a podcast is a movie coming out in May. You can go to 2000 meals dot com you can get your tickets for that. But it's going to document. I mean, using open records using cell phone tracking and others, the issue of ballot harvesting and ballots in Georgia and Wisconsin in places like that. So this is not going away. Now, as far as looking backwards and changing the elections, one of the, this is why you've had so many legislatures, especially like in Georgia and other places. Take initiatives and their legislative sessions last year and this year to combat what we saw in 2020. Now, that's going to hide in this. So in many ways, for a lot of people who are very frustrated, especially Trump supporters who are very frustrated will not happen in 2020. This is going to refuel that anger is going to refuel that conspiracy and disgust and it's going to make you know, 'cause this is real facts that are happening. Real things that you'll be able to see. And it just goes to show that no matter what the mainstream media wanted to say about the last election, that there were a lot of questions about what happened and how it was taking place. And a lot of things that were done under the cover if you would of the pandemic. That, frankly, were not should not have been done under state law and many of these states and they were done unilaterally under the quote emergency COVID protections that ended up causing the elections to have a lot of people have questions

I don't know why they're they're like two to one underdogs to me. That's yeah and i think there's a comfort level right like when you get Sergio and lee westwood there together who've just one endless cup matches like the two of them look at each other. Oh it's like it's fucking two thousand four out here. We're good like that's not the you know. That's that's that comfort level. That's like oh we're just in the we're in the trenches again. We're in the war. So i you do. if you're route v america. You do have to worry about that because those guys they just get such a comfort level out there with all those points they like sergio's the most is the most sports and they're gonna history of the writer right. There's something to say about like. I'm really excited about the rookies on the us team. I just think that we need that. Fresh blood it's everything that we've been saying that the team doesn't have we just need to just wipe away all the bullshit bringing these new guys have them perform. Well what i. But i also love old name veteran players. I do this with my fantasy football team. Like i get my faulk. Antonio brown's i've tom brady. I've got julio jones. All these guys that you're like. Oh i mean my teams unbelievable. Because they're just big name veterans like big name veterans. Get the job done. i mean fuck. I'm an islander fan. We've got all of them now. Zach parise day playing for the daniel char playing for the islanders. I'm so jacked up. Dinnie big names and when you hear about sergio garcia and like ian poulter. Yeah there's fucking amazing young players out there in the world. There's probably amateurs playing in college right now. That are better golfers and ian poulter but that name just does it in big events that name. Sergio garcia just gets it done right. I'm looking at now. This is our dozen johnson. It's fifth ryder cup at alana ryder cups. But he's a name get done what. Dj's name that gets done to even though it doesn't actually get done. He's he's a name that gets it done. But this is sergio garcia's tenth ryder cup and it's le- less with eleven so it's just a comfort. they're comfortable. We got a really young team in terms of ryder cup What's the word i'm looking for but it's we just ran the amount of of tenure that these guys have at the radical and. You're like ian poulter. We are constantly but like you put them on a ride erica. And he feels comfortable. It's very different than on the. Pj two very different you. You might have frozen rigs again do frozen rakes by.

"Yeah i kind of like the look that this team has kind of like the direction they went this year. It's pretty cool actually. I agree that we don't know what's going on. Line the scenes like your big thing is that we. They're not connecting enough. They're not going out and they're not drinking. They're watching movies together but it is like we don't know anything about this team right now. It's so behind the scenes that maybe they are hanging out. Maybe they are dealt. We don't know yet. I guess like my answer would be the only things that are negative. The shit that we see is negative as brooks and bryson being those two losers absolute zeroes. Those two guys grow. Why don't we just stricken to sit them throughout the whole ryder cup and just play the other ten guys. Did you see our now. We're talking tread daddy see. Imagine that imagine how funny that would be if he just didn't play brookshire bryson in the whole except sunday obviously for the singles but like before that just like sim. I'd honestly rather sit brooks than bryson. I think bryson deserves it more than bookstores. brooks' brooks's really really taken a downturn when it comes to his public perception telling i love it. I love it. I think they just sat brooks the whole time. It'd be awesome. That's actually a great idea. That'd be amazing. That would be amazing. But like i still wouldn't not have on the team like he's you gotta hope that this guy's in show up. He's one of the best players on the planet. You can't just not have brooks kept on the team but maybe you could send a message once. He's there maybe that's your camaraderie. Everyone can rally around leaving like one of the best players on the team on the bench. You know that fucking barry traumas that would map bars all time third period. Where the folks map oursel- got the best player on the team. He's sitting the entire period because he didn't backcheck. I see but i'm not going to all of a sudden roof of the rangers. They put him out there as my point. But i agree. There could be some coaching decisions within the team. Brooks character is an absolute fucking liability. When it comes to his his every time he speaks now is just. He's digging himself a deeper hole. What's wrong with this guy. What's wrong with brooks kepco. I mean for the longest time. He didn't say anything he wouldn't say a word of the media. And then i think he said after he won a couple of major cities like i feel like i've earned the right to have an opinion about certain things that go on golf and now you're right every time he says something you have to take a deep breath and think what bridge is he gonna burn next. What teammate is he gonna piss off next. It's really something the where how far we've come to goes pretty insane. See i think it would send an awesome message if it was okay if you go out there and you make comments like you. Don't care about the ryder cup or when you win holes you hit good shots and you. The other guy doesn't that you're kind of like well. I did my job. If steve stricker semester. So yeah you make comments like that you're sitting. You're not playing until sunday singles and we have to play..

"As i mentioned before that's going directly towards general operating support but also for capacity building helping those organizations to support their operational functions the functionalities in order to help the organization run better and more efficiently and being able to ramp up against the challenges that they face. This is all very good news. I think that it shows as i said before philanthropy in wisconsin isn't just a checkbook. It's actually a strong partner. In a lot of the the nonprofit challenges we talk a lot about the power dynamic between funders and nonprofits and that nonprofits are afraid to talk to funders because they have the money and yet funders aren't quite sure about how to address nonprofits because they don't want to be the ones leading the conversation. They want to be able to respond now help. And so who takes the lead and finding more and more that nonprofits are getting a little bolder and funders are getting a little bit more proactive. In reaching out to develop the conversations. I think there will be some good. This is just my personal opinion in the work and the conversation it comes out of the pandemic and all of the closures and the partnerships that develop as a way to support and survive. But as i said only time will tell. But in the meantime it's it's really reassuring to know that there are organizations like wpn helping to develop the other side of the equation and make sure that we are all working towards the same common goals and so with that. I'm going to give this a wrap and call it an episode. It's kind of nice to get behind the microphone again. After a nice long break seen a couple of weeks and enjoy the new year.

I gain that knowledge from that expert in that space but when we're talking about community meetings and interactions a collaborative models and opportunities to connect. I have no tolerance right now or paces pam experts in the room so if someone sells out and expert and they know everything there experience help them all of these different things and they're not budging and they're talking at and talking to people. I have very little patience. For those types of experts and in some cases it can be dealbreakers. Because i was telling someone. I think maybe maybe even do want those interview process talk about my lifetime that i feel like i live a happy light. I will feel like. I have acquired a level of of dizziness in my life.

But still but i appreciate you taking the time to sit down with me and i really feel exactly what you were just talking about about the need to learn from one another and to expand ourselves.

So the organization that tony overseas the wisconsin philanthropy network is a professional membership association for grant makers all over wisconsin. If you are a community foundation a private foundation an individual giver corporate healthcare higher education foundations. This is an organization that helps to make sure that that giving is as effective and meaningful as possible or provides networking opportunities skills building as well as customized research services and one of the research projects that wpn puts out regularly as a biannual report all wisconsin gifts which looks deeply into the philanthropic trends throughout wisconsin and compares that national trends to see just exactly where the money's going where the focus is are where the shifts are happening and it's pretty fascinating dive into just how philanthropy works was kansin. It becomes evident that it's not simply a checkbook. It is in fact an ear to the ground. That's really listening and paying attention and trying to preempt any challenges in the future and to see where the twists and turns of society are likely to take us and how they might be able to help support in the future. I find it kind of interesting giving trends in. America have been on the rise for years and according to wisconsin gives twenty twenty between two thousand eighteen and two thousand nineteen. There was a four point two percent increase just in that year alone resulting in almost four hundred and fifty billion dollars in charitable giving. And that's kind of a maze. Twenty one billion of that is from a different corporations. As they wrote the report they conducted a survey of all of their members and found that almost sixty five percent of those who responded are specifically increasing grants and gifts for disaster philanthropy due to covid nineteen. that's sixty five percent of the funders in wisconsin. That are pivoting specifically to match the challenges of the pandemic and the resulting nonprofit closures and draw down of services at that's resulted in what i think is most interesting and we talked a little bit about it in our interview. The difference between programming and operational support funders don't necessarily have a long standing history of funding operational support of proceeding almost forty percent increasing the grants to that overall operations funding. That's significant that. Means those organizations are going to be able to keep their lights on keep their staff up and running and be able to deliver the services. What i think is is particularly interesting. Given a lot of the events of twenty twenty that were not covid. Nineteen related sixty percent of the survey respondents are specifically focusing their funding to address racial justice issues. That's pretty significant. There's always been a presence of that in philanthropy but to see that degree of a shift is is very impressive. Could be really interesting to see what that results in how that plays out in the years to come when we talk about all of its covert nineteen funding. The majority of that is going directly for food security and making sure that people have food on the table as a result of an employment issues and being just unable to get out and live their lives. And that's a pretty impressive response as we move forward in industrial be interesting to see how this all plays out in twenty twenty one twenty twenty two to get that report but to see kind of where some of this shift ends up and how much a sustained in the years to come in and where the trends take us and as part of their grant maker survey they found that there were significant increases in the giving

"Looking for when i'm engaging with people also and so you mentioned that you are passionate and i'm thinking that people can be passionate about a lot of different things and so keeping the last six seven months in mind and kind of how things are working with not working in this virtual world and what do you feel the most passionate about right now on a personal or professional level. I give you a couple of things i think. I'm very passionate right now about the mental health of myself and my mental wellness about myself and the community at large. I think that that is an important component of where we are. You're talking about isolation or you're talking about things are happening that are out of your control that are relative to call maybe some in food insecurity for people maybe a loss of job those kinds of things some worried about all of that inside the space of mental health and wellness. That people are in howard breathing. Who were engaging with our be minimizing triggers in our line goal human and psychological. That are out there. And how we're thinking about that and then you know. I won't be remiss drives if i didn't say that the the journey that we've been on lately as relates to racial and social injustice is something that i'm becoming more passionate about. We can have that conversation about system we can have that conversation about people's attitude and where they are and how you can ultimately change things and the crucial conversation that we need to have. I'm to lead that charge then. Wpn but i think for the first time in my life. I am recognizing my own leadership journey as late to racial equity and social equity within our communities and i am actually having more hard shoot conversations within my own self about where i am in the space. What privileges have i enjoyed. What things have i done over the course of my lifetime that hap- to the system that are affecting our community and then thinking about all of that in the context of what it's like to run an organization life yet where we do have the percy challenges that philanthropy overall i was. Actually you brought that up. And that was my immediate. I thought is what is it like. As a black man. Leading an organization with a constituency that is predominantly white. Yeah so it's an interesting dynamic. Because a lot of things have happened in all of those copy conversations that i've had over the course of my. I'm coming up on my i can't believe it i'll come third year third year anniversary. Wpn which is crazy. Adulation congratulates you very much. Because time is just blown by. But i spent two years in this organization just trying to build trust trying to get out of people's mindset west. Tony gonna take you know. Where's this person's going to take organization when i interviewed for this position and i talked to the selection committee about this job. I didn't talk about being a black man. What i talked about was someone who's born in many different arenas someone who has a diverse network of people that i work with and rely on for a number of conversations on key issues. Someone who understands nonprofits someone who wants to understand. Better philanthropy and help polanski. Tell a better story about the work. They're doing i didn't i didn't show up as a black man job. I i did well. And that's that is the ideal you know. That's how you should have approached by but it was interesting because i one of the very person meetings i went to. Wpn as elite up wpn meaning probably twenty five thirty people. All great people care about community in the next in the trenches getting their hands. Dirty sorenson works looking at nonprofit organisation. Doing all the right things. But i walked into that room and i was the only african american that room and that was like that was the moment for me. Wow you know so you know. I know that there are people of color that are working in the sector working within the space. But there was a time where i can listen to you very easily. I think there's been more expansion that has happened over the three year periods. And i've been here and that's not gonna need to register. Wpn that ship organizations really changing how they look at populated their organization. How look at their hiring practices and our diversity efforts and what they're doing so great strides. The may but a lot of work still needs to be done but to be honest with you right. I'm very sensitive about being an african american man in this space and this work and part of the part of that i've been doing is feeling like we're gonna lead these efforts and we've got equity we. We had a strategic planning process that we engaged in a couple of years ago for three to five year plan and equity is right in one of the key. Strategic components are oriented face. so there's been equity. There's been i but it's been kind of small letter equity kind of just things that you have seen over the last thirty year and there has been a reputation for me leading an organization being a man of color doing this work and thinking about how programming how conversations and how working get done and personally be obsessed with. It's gotta be told. You can't mess this up and i've used workable language by trump so you can't you can't mess this up and my journey over the course of this past year with all of my cold reflection and a lot of sitting by myself and thinking about what to do and what. I want my own personal legacy look for myself my family my community and the work that we're doing tony. You have to get out of the space of perfection. You have to look at community based research principles and evaluation principal understand that the state can be made. Mistakes will be made. Go back to what you've been doing your entire professional career which is tried to testing and doing new things and if they mess up learn from your mistakes and go forward and that's really been a very profound thing for me as i've been going on my own leadership journey. Which is you know tony. You're gonna have to give yourself permission to make mistakes. And that's okay and so i'm not there yet. It's always gonna be adjourning you know always gonna be in but's it's already that i thought on that journey right now and i can't believe that you know thirty years or professional career in the walkie. I thought i was interesting brian. I gave him the same thing. I thought it was supposed to be easier by now. I thought my time in my career and my age. I was gonna know everything was going to be pretty easy. And i'm surprised incurs an exciting about the fact that i'm still learning and i was still willing to take my and that the the professional trajectory and everything that done in my lifetime it's been very lumpy be ride and i'm still audit and i'm cool with that makes it exciting though you know if you've got to settle than to if you just got too comfortable. Where's your word is your motivation. Go right ryan the fact that at our stage in life we have this passion to learn his passion to of just and see what's going on around us and find our place. I think that's in our favor. Do are a lot of people out there. that don't necessarily see it.

"Doing i think. The biggest challenge with coal. Actually i will call the challenge. Because i don't think i i you know. We're challenged by virtue of kobe. But i think philanthropy has done some really great thing relative to the pandemic especially on the onset of the pandemic so there were a number of familiar with the coats on that was developed here in milwaukee that was led by the greater milwaukee foundation and other family private family foundations well corporate entities that a source bat that particular you know may not get the number on percent right but i think that initial funding source was someone neighbor. To of three million dollars was was raised like within the first week. So what you saw. We're very similar efforts in other markets around the state so be madison. Green bay fox cities other rural spaces lead mostly in part by community foundations throughout the state or the united way organizations where really lead the charge in sourcing that work so from a financial perspective from a resource perspective. There wasn't abusing of dollars that came in to support basic needs so housing food insecurity employment efforts that were released and becomes the result of coding. But i think just as important. And probably i don't know you know acting more than for was philanthropy across the board within wisconsin Decided to in working with their grant. Tease relaxed many of the restrictions around restricted fund and said those nonprofit organizations that you can utilize dollars we may have provided you were direct program and apply that to your basic operations to spain employees within your organization. That was a game changer. I mean you had organizations that had rigorous eighteen months fund development processes in granting that they were doing with their partners who organized their work within their organization reorganize how structured and got board approval and turned eighteen month processes. it's a four week processes in some cases mets impressive. Yeah it's significant. I wanna i wanna take a moment because it occurs to me will probably have a few people listening who don't necessarily quite understand the difference between programmatic funding and general operational funding. There are two different pools or primary approaches. Funders can assist and historically were talking about supporting specific programs that tends to be very restricted. In how the money is allowed to be spelled as the funders. Get a say in that. But what we're talking about is that they kind of those restrictions and said you can use this money to pay your bills to pay the rent to pay the salaries tra- that's exactly right. It's the difference between. I remember when i was at united neighbor citizen walkie. We had a restricted jobs program. Now we worked on and capital aren restrictions capital letters restrictions across the board. And then things like we're bringing in youth to bring them in employment to give them employment opportunities by the grant that you were see can't allow you to provide lunch with those young people and they come in for their training you can't certain things and then the audit included asking us how we were utilizing the windex. He bought to clean up the tables that we were working. What i'll while i would say that. The membership of wisconsin philanthropy network is that there are restriction some funds that are out there from a programming perspective and there was a call or more trust based approaches and The spaces the philanthropy. Ups is working with the whitman out of california what they have developed a model for what is called recipes philanthropy and that is really not only four wisconsin philanthropic organizations to relax those restrictions. But how do you help your your grand tease. Psychologically work through this work. How do you develop a mechanism for the ability for the nonprofit organization to be completely candid and transparent about the challenges venture not proper spacing to be blunt as nonprofit organization. They are not predisposed to talk about the bad things that are happening in their organization. They're predisposed to talk about results to talk about out com talk about impact the great things that they're doing so it's very difficult for them In many cases to feel comfortable enough with their funders to say here's a problem. We're the real challenge that we're going through and so the length of us really working hard at the dolphins mechanism that atmosphere where grand tease. You'll coupable enough to engage in conversations with funders. Were they could talk about the real challenges that they're facing it that and then communicating that so that was another piece of psychology was the land that worked very hard the onset of colon to communicate to their grant teas that we're going to change around our focus at how we're doing things as a response to covid nineteen. What was happening. What is happening in that state. That's really impressive. As kind of thinking about the culture of philanthropy and how that affects people from both sides of the conversation. I think that's you've worked in a broad variety of different careers different tasks that were before you all of that. What do you think you really really. Well what do you do this. Wow well first of all. Thanks for asking that question. I appreciate the opportunity to think on that. So you know you're always and then mindset When you're in a job interview you're asked. What are your weaknesses and your strengths. And we designed. I worked hard. I think too much and make it into something positive. And then you are asked about your shrinks looking for a job. You don't always think about those guys. The exact glen i appreciate. You asked me that question. What does my screen. I think i think my strength is my authenticity. I think my strength is The fact that. I what you see. I mean literally truly what you see what she get that. I'm really trying to while. I'm always going to champion work. The job the needs of an organization what needs to happen for an organization that these successful. I am still going to be. I'm going to be into the list. So i'm going to be transparent and i'm going to be authentic with my work. I think that i take that very seriously to be authentic person to be a truth teller and it's most appropriate forms not to be not throw cold water on things or shut people down but the truth set you free. I think every every opportunity around that. And i think the other thing that i do well is my z. Has them my excitement. My passion and my and my honest desire to be relational really have strong relationships and people and to have them always feel like women.

"Years now and i was ready to run an organization because i have been running an organization prior to coming on. Wgn but being ready to do a good job. I question that in some respects that i was ready to do a good job in this role. Probably right at the moment. That i took this position because i had to learn from a number of mistakes and also give myself time to celebrate the successes i had over the course of by professional career routes 'cause there were a lot of success is there are a lot of great things that are but there are distinct moments in my congressional career whereas like you made a mistake that day and this what you learn from that situation and that talk i mean. There's there's always going to be a learning curve you know. You can't be expected to walk in first day and immediately changed the world right You gotta understand the lay of the land. And when you're going to program supervision to all of a sudden working with philanthropies there's a whole different side of the coin bear you're interacting west to understand the needs of that community which is very different than being on the receiving end of funding. You know we're all doing the same work right. Philanthropy is helping the source all those non profit organizations that are out in our community doing great great work helping the take up the scale. Great things that are happening or helping to continue to support things. That are proven. It's ally but it is very different. I mean the difference between nonprofit organizations how the world relative to scarcity of resources and how that greed an atmosphere of competition it breeds an atmosphere. Where collaboration is not the first thing that people are thinking about whereas in philanthropy. But when i would sit around the table with organizations that. I've worked with when i was doing nonprofit collaboration. There was always tense. I mean there was. it was inherent. It was inherent tension. It might have been. Somebody did something to somebody. And somebody's organization somebody that's up to somebody organization three years earlier and they're still hard feelings or people are are checking swing. Relative to munching forward for our need to really collaborate in an offensive way because history philanthropy operates very differently around the table in philanthropy. Everybody's comfortable in their own skin rockwell automation as an example isn't going to be worried about competition from the brewers community foundation because they're both sourcing work been acquired their resources to be able to do their work in very different ways to really breathes opportunity. School our collaboration on a very different level because all that clutter that comes in from the competition. Aspect isn't there. It's completely minimized in that the clutter as you call it. It strikes me that there is this a level of comfort. That's very different. From being a nonprofit looking to receive funds versus being effectively profit has funds and providing it so the clutter. Did you feel like that's a result of competition own. Yeah i do. Yeah that clutter is so there's a number of things not just the competition aspect. A lot of it is alignment of mission and small staff. The absence in many respects of key bench thought leaders inside of nonprofit organizations because the majority and rightfully so People that are working in nonprofit organizations. I really frontline staff. They're executing programming and outreach and work very specific ways so does not a lot of time to think strategically or big picture or around. Who who you could partner with to move forward your own mission and the work that you're doing there is the whole notion around. There's only certain amount of dollars or talent or people that can do the work or the resources needed to be able to do that work so there's always some challenges for people in organizations because this is the number of different dynamics that are out there that nonprofit organizations are working within the sector. It makes it a little bit tougher to come together and collaborate and really authentic ways. When i was at harley davidson are charitable contributions committee would have these married. Now keep in mind. This is a charitable contributions committee that comprised of professionals in manufacturing and. So you've got engineers you've got financial analysts you've got lawyers. You've got some marketing people. You've got manufacturing leaders that are sitting around the table and talking about sourcing projects within the community and they're looking at it a lean manufacturing perspective and so built down and if they see three proposals from three to nonprofit organizations and they're all doing the same work and they're all competing then the next mindset is won't we figure out how to source them all or can they collaborate. Can't they come together and come up with the program. And i would often tell the people in those rooms. Yes we get asked to collaborate. We can bring the leaders of those three organizations to collaborate and tell them we're going to find you and certain kind of way we're going to fund you to do this work that you were all doing and they're gonna now their head and they're gonna agree and they're gonna walk out the door and two months later they're gonna come back with a proposal that is going to meet our requirements but the time for the walking out the door to presenting that proposal to us two months later there will be a bloodbath because these are competitors these are organizations. That aren't necessarily waking up to do this collaborative work and so what were effectively doing forced marriage. We're basically telling the community that we're forcing come together for collaboration when we all know that collaboration is really greeted in what we're doing right now. Brice which is we're connecting on a level then is not started or sparked by. Oh there's money over there let's go pursue it started by relational interpersonal opportunities to come together and then ideas flow. And then you say wow. You're doing this. i'm doing that. But we do this. Let's collaborate and a proposal when as the scarcity issue does not allow that freedom or that time to be able to do that type of collaboration. What going be doing that. Yeah that's that's very cool to hear. I was talking to another in another episode. I was talking with someone that as part of this whole study. that h. b. is doing for kind of the effect of covid nineteen. What we found. Is that in terms of organizational collaboration. Southeastern wisconsin is had shoulders above the rest of the state as you were saying. It's largely been sort of philanthropy driven in our community for a while. It's just kind of interesting that you touch on that and kind of how philanthropists are effectively looking to sort of make sure that efforts are being duplicated and that at least here in milwaukee or or the general area that seems to be working better than another communities at any rate around the state. Yeah and so. I'm curious though in terms of the kind of talk about covert nineteen there for a little bit from your perspective and and kind of engaging with philanthropists. I imagined pretty heavily. Especially in the last six seven months. What's going on in the world of philanthropy related to covid nineteen and kind of the challenges. That nonprofits are facing right. The over arching thing. That i would say is that wisconsin s philanthropy relates to kobe. We're very consistent with what is happening nationally. Which which is you look at the best practices that are happening. Wisconsin is developed some pretty good best practices within

"Philanthropy. I think the way that most people get into philanthropy. They kind of dropped in based on their life experience. You know professional experiences you know kinda the ban with all that extent other often leads you in some respects to workings and some level in philanthropy. But i'm originally from chicago. Lived there for the first. You know technically the first twenty one years of my life. So i originally came to milwaukee to attend then cardinal stritch college which is now cardinal stritch university so. I came up to play basketball. What continue my high school career. It's my college career. And in that moment of my life. I wanted to leave the west side of chicago. There was more recuperation gang activity it was becoming a little bit more dangerous for someone who was in their late teens and i was also begin the process of broadening my own horizon so i jumped at the opportunity to in college an hour and a half away from chicago in my own life. Experience that hour and a half of could've been hundred miles. I'd never really been out of chicago than a couple of very quick family vacation. So i literally thought. Wisconsin was a world away. My dream at the time was to work in radio. Possibly be on air. Talent and radio ended up going down to track internships and those kinds of things working more sales more promotions and that went to an opportunity with the milwaukee bucks the lowest lowest ron of iran. That was literally go within the organization. Doing the number of activities and work where i often said to myself So this is pro sports Right just you gotta start somewhere. You gotta start somewhere right. You gotta start somewhere so within my experience box went from ten gopher to sales and marketing season ticket sales program sales up my entire time with the bucks i was on your systems coordinator for gays i was in charge of whenever you walk into the arena for a game. I was responsible for what you hear playing music in doing that. Kind of thing. Picking it progress music but Working i was dealing with. The box was particular program for students who achieved in classrooms through milwaukee public schools and walk shop schools west tie. We were working on developing a tim. A ticketing program for students who had sheep and bright gave me the opportunity to the school. So i would go on all these different schools all of these built environments around schooling and you walk into schools in certain neighborhoods at certain times and certain moments and you realize there is a. There's a gap between school. School environment to environment disciplined might look like at one school versus another. How middle schools look different than highschool some respect and then in some respects. Didn't it all so that began by interest. Because this this was the moment that i was getting my car on a regular basis going out and going into milwaukee and visiting and seeing neighborhoods and so i got a certain amount of energy in doing that and right same time this was around. Nineteen ninety-three the nba. That's basketball association. Was asking all team to have a dedicated community relations department within their organization it so like most. Nba teams the bucks. Were doing a lot of things in the community. The aforementioned program. I was talking about their work with matt fun. Working with youth groups those kind of things partnerships with organizations like the boys and girls clubs. Ymca but it wasn't centralized in the organization and so when they were looking to have someone kind of centralized operation up community relationship. I raised my hand and said you know the school doing stuff in the community already. I would love the opportunity to grow my career by leading our media relations efforts and that led me to for the next seven years as the community relations director of the box. So i was just the doping programs engaging players engaging coaches engaging staff in various partnership spirits activities around community relations so that was my first opportunity to review. Proposals from the community gets no community members. Get to know the people within the community organizations that are doing good work who should be scaled up so that was like my first entry way into that work so after about seven years of doing that i decided to make a hugely going from the corporate sector of the nonprofit sector because i wanted to see what life was like on the other side and i took a voice girls clubs greater milwaukee if they're direct programs throughout the city of milwaukee bad. I am telling you bryce and you're gonna appreciate that. I had done sales and marketing. I had done season ticket sales. I had done Pitches to sponsors to align them community programs that we were working on but going into work with the boys and girls clubs the single hardest sales job. I've ever ridden up sales the belief of sales. You know when you go. From a corporate environment to nonprofit world people automatically assume i remember these conversations with the thai people would say oh my goodness you're going to work with the kids that's wonderful and you're going to do all these great days. You're going to buildings relationships. You're gonna impact young people as you're going up and you go in there and i wouldn't have very easily and didn't have a full grasp Impact revenue generation for a non profit organization to sustain all the good work that people know that now profit organization is doing and quite honestly. I don't even think mentally i was ready for. It was a major culture shock for me and it also grounded me a little bit learning how to be humble learning how to understand that there are people in the room who know more about the community than you do even though you worked in that space going padding pro sports behind each adding pro sports five you was a significant culture shock and so i learned a lot in that space went from that to work a small public relations and marketing burn biggest. Worked i did was what the wisconsin tobacco control born so i was working tobacco cessation efforts and secondhand smoke mitigates to work in communities of color throughout the state of wisconsin. I need to get a feel for the state. When from there to harley davidson managed and lead their community relations for about six years worked on two major motorcycle anniversary hundred bent relationships with us. Just be association. Disabled american veterans and then work dot community relations efforts in the areas where we at corporate facility. I learn more about trending and benchmarking organizations so that was a great opportunity and then from there. I went to united neighbor. To the milwaukee where i was the executive director so again for and for profit back to the nonprofit sector with with uncommon for about eight years managing that organization a membership organization. So they gave me an opportunity to go to figure out how to serve the work with numbers. And then right to where i got dropped in working in philanthropy. That's quite a path. It's always fascinating to me the path that people take through life where you started where you end up almost never the same place in the same seat belt or anything interesting because you know when you look back on and you think about you know what i was like when i was younger. How you think your career is gonna go. You think oh. I'm going to graduate college. And i'm gonna go work someplace now to put on a suit and i'm going to come up with this great idea. And i'm gonna have the zenith career. Take the executive position the executive suite that i rightfully are and what you don't realize what my own professional trajectory taught me was. It takes time. It takes effort. It takes success most important it takes state and it takes learning from those states to develop the foundation that you could have that you are able to run able to lead able to influence and do those things that you wanna do.

Which is how we have handled every other viral outbreak in the last century in this country we would not have been in this mess. There would have been an economic downturn because some people wouldn't have been comfortable going to this Saturday the other thing and many businesses like these sports leagues would have shut down on their own without government order but that would have been at least Americans making decisions for themselves rather than this micromanagement of our lives that you heard the last spot break Danell.
