Self-Defense Expert Andrew Branca Describes His Greatest Frustration With the Rittenhouse Case

"With us is an expert and someone who is terrific and came highly recommended from the wonderful Jack the Soviet is Andrew Branca from law of self defense dot com Andrew welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. You have been terrific, explaining this case. What has been your greatest frustration and how the media has covered the rittenhouse case from your from your perspective and knowing the law as it pertains to self defense? Well, of course, the media is largely the propaganda arm of the political left in America. So they, with all these politicized cases, they rapidly develop a false narrative about what happened. And narrative that if it were true, would outrage anybody, but it's not true. They do this with Zimmerman. They do this with Jacob Blake. They do this with George Floyd. They do this with another Kyle rittenhouse case. And unfortunately, normal human beings only know what they perceive in their environment. They only know the information that's presented to them. And of all they see is the news media propaganda. Well, that's what they're going to believe. So people believe, for example, that Jacob Blake was shot in the back 7 times for no good reason when in fact he was armed with a knife and getting into a car with children in it. Being non compliant with lawful arrest. People, for some reason, believe that Kyle rittenhouse was an active shooter who shot a bunch of black people at a protest. None of that ever happened. Kyle rittenhouse never shot anyone who wasn't actively attacking him with deadly force. But you see people on Twitter, over the course of this trial, shocked to discover that what they thought had happened was not at all

Critical Race Theory: What Is It?

"Is critical Race theory? Yes. So critical Race theory began around the 19 seventies with the law professor Derrick Bell and a couple of other legal scholars trying to understand the ways. That race and American law intersected how history of slavery and segregation was sort of codified and continue to influence American law Today. Adam Harris is a staff writer at the Atlantic. His most recent article was titled The GOP S Critical Race Theory Obsession, Harris says. One of the first instances we started to see critical race theory being used as a political bludgeon was in the early 19 nineties, President Bill Clinton nominated Atlantic near to the Justice Department. She was a legal scholar who done a lot of work and voting rights and conservatives effectively used her previous work in voting rights to sort of tag her as someone who was arguing for racial quotas in voting for the amount of seats that people should hold on city councils. They also tagged her as championing a radical school of thought. Called Critical Race Theory. Amid mounting pressure from conservatives, President Clinton has withdrawn his nomination of Lani Guinier to head up the Justice Department's civil rights division, claiming veneers writings lent themselves to views that he could not embrace the president cut her loose rather than fight a divisive battle on Capitol Hill. From there you have A kind of dormant period. It's not really until after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin, the Jesse Jackson like race profiteer race grievance industry says everything's about race. America's a racist nation. You see a mention of critical race theory after a video surfaces of President Barack Obama hugging Derek Bell in 1990, you know When he was a law student at Harvard Law. The president is actually kind of aligning himself here with a well known campus radical. There is a conservative back last thing that he believes in this radical critical race theory.

MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

Here's how he responded when a prosecutor asked if chauvin was right to press his knee into george floyd's neck even as floyd lay handcuffed phase. Down putting your a knack for that amount of time is just uncalled for. I saw no reason why the officers felt they were endanger.

"These zimmerman. Who sent the telegram. Was arthur zimmermann. A high ranking official in the german foreign affairs office so basically in the event of war. Germany wanted mexico to open up another front in the war on their border with the united states. They also wanted mexico to contact japan to get them to join the war on their side. This was explosive to say the least the british however were a bit of a dilemma on the one hand. If the telegram were shown to the americans it could be enough to get the united states to join the war on the side of the allies however if it became public that the british had the telegram would let the germans know that they had cracked their code and it would be the end of their ability to intercept german communications as germany would change all their codes however if they showed it to the americans they had to get the americans to believe that the telegram was wine. It was really easy to fake telegrams there were no timestamps ip addresses or even wax seals to validate the message on february first. The germans announced unrestricted submarine warfare again and united states broke off diplomatic relations on february fifth. The telegram had been completely decrypted and it was handed off to the british foreign service the british now had to concoct a story to explain to the americans how they got this without letting them know that they were intercepting american diplomatic communications and without letting the germans know that they had cracked their code. The british new wants. The german message arrived in washington. It would be forwarded to mexico via a commercial telegraph service. Their story was that they had bribed someone working in the mexican office to get a copy of the telegram. They would then say that. They had stolen the decrypted message from the germans in mexico thus covering up the fact that they had known the germans code because the americans would have kept a copy of the encrypted message as it passed through their hands. The british could quietly slip. The americans the german code so they could decrypted themselves to verify its authenticity. The telegram was shown to the americans on february nineteenth. A meeting between the american ambassador and the british foreign secretary took place on february twenty third where the british show the americans everything including the code so they could verify its authenticity and february. Twenty fourth the details of the telegram given to wilson. Along with all of the corroborating evidence. The telegram was made public on march first. There was an immediate uproar in the country and a rise in anti german sentiment as suspected many people publicly questioned the validity of the telegram but that was quickly put to rest when on march third. Arthur zimmermann himself admitted to the telegram to an american newspaper reporter a little more than one month later on april. Six united states declared war against germany. While i don't think you can say that americans one world war one. I do think you say that. Their entry into the war. Help turn the tide..

"By clicking on the link in the show notes to give some background the united states studiously tried to stay out of world war one in fact it pretty much had been a standing policy to avoid european wars since the country was founded george washington said in his farewell address quote. It is true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world. Unquote thomas jefferson reiterated this in his first inaugural address when he said quote peace commerce and honest friendship with all nations entangling alliances with none unquote in the nineteen sixteen presidential election. The main issue was that of war. The huge war going on in europe and the civil war which was raging south of the border in mexico official. us policy was neutrality. And the biggest campaign. Slogan for woodrow wilson was. He kept us out of the war. Which would turn out to be really ironic and just a few months. Wilson comfortably defeated republican. Charles evans hughes who fun fact is the only sitting supreme court justice ever to have won a party's nomination for president. The american public didn't wanna get involved in the war but they did lean towards the allies. The germans were targeting american shipping and they had sunk the passenger ship lusitania. The british and french desperately wanted the united states to enter the war on their side. The troops and equipment that the us could bring to the war could be decisive in the stalemate meat grinder. That was the western front by the same token the germans desperately did not want the united states entered the war. They were willing to go to great lengths to make sure that didn't happen. Also the last several years had been tense between the united states and mexico. The us occupied the mexican city of veracruz nineteen fourteen and the us army was chasing down poncho via who had been running rates across the mexican border. It was in this environment that the following events took place in january nineteen seventeen. The german diplomatic service needed to send a message to their embassy in mexico with the outbreak of war. The british had all of the german international telegraph cables so the germans had rely on neutral countries to communicate with their diplomatic staff oversees. The country's they used in this case. Sweden and the united states. The germans gave it a coded message to the americans to be passed along to their embassy. In mexico city. The wilson administration had agreed to serve as an intermediary for the germans to show support for american neutrality and keep diplomatic channels open for a negotiated peace which is what wilson had hoped for. The americans didn't have a direct connection from their embassy in berlin to the united states..

"This is Sol work really is what it is like soul and that should mean that is you know being able to take you know a situation and and Liberate myself from it emancipated myself from it while empowering others, you know, that's really what it is. And you go back to your question about the title. So my husband had an illness with his gut and he very quickly lost a ton of weight. He got down to about a hundred and thirty pounds and there was a night that I was just laying in bed and I was writing a journal and I looked over at him and I didn't you know, my husband's super chatty and he's you know, very nurturing and he hadn't really heard his voice in a few days cuz he was so I'm exhausted and sick and I looked over his body and he looked to me like an eighty-year-old man. He was thirty-three. He looked a t and I wrote one line down in my journal that day. I wrote I feel like I'm sleeping with a stranger. Wow, and and I and circled it and I remember Thinking if I ever write about this that is going to be the title of the book which is crazy cuz I'm not a writer, you know what I mean? Like it's just things like that would happen and you just have to wake up but you know, you come from a place of things happen for us not to us exactly he come from that perspective things get better. Exactly exactly. Oh, I just love that like, oh I got chills girlfriend and we'll make sure that we put in a plug for the book at the end so they can definitely get it cuz I think that is so awesome. Like with someone or even yourself I wrote a blogpost one time that really resonated with people where I title they're being the other woman and people were like, oh God she talked about. Yeah read it. It's about me just waking up one day and realizing that I wasn't being a person that God had designed and destined me to be and I'm looking in the mirror like I don't even know about She ate yes.

"So let's talk about your book. First of all the title that that just jumped out to me. I absolutely love the title. But what choice yes, I love it. I it. Cuz I mean it makes you be like wait, hold on. Wait, what was that time again? Yeah, I loved it loved it. So what made you write your book? So the book is called sleeping with a stranger and basically when my husband Brian got ill like wage was six weeks after my twin boys were born. It was two weeks after my daughter's second birthday and we spent you know over a year just kind of in and out the hospital trying to figure out what was wrong with him. And I remember during that time. I mean my husband and I have now been together twenty years. We we met when we were eighteen and and I just woke For you know, we we were married for eight years before we had kids like we just loved being around each other and we were really supportive of one another and had so much fun together. And so it was really weird when he got ill and then going back to you know, losing my sister when I was young and that was out of my control. There was a part of me felt like I needed to control this the best way I could change and if I could just you know, get him to the right doctor he could be healed if I could just make enough money. He could be healed, you know, whatever and you know, I just remember when we were going through it at one point cuz it was about a it was about a 4-year journey. And first you do with the physical then you deal with the mental image. You also deal with the fact that you have two people that have completely grown. two different directions into two completely different people right who Brown and I were pre illness and who brought in IR post illness month or two completely different people have to decide, you know, Do we continue to love and support and do first of all, do we even like each other? We like these people exactly now and I don't to be honest. I don't really know if we had met you know today and if we would be attracted to one another, you know, I don't know but I know that so the book is all about kind of that journey and it is very real raw honest. It is also funny if I do say so myself but it is just an honest look about what happens when a Jeep Compass is lost and you you know have to kind of find yourself and but I knew during even the worst times of that Keisha, I knew that.

Okay, even I mean and I respected what he said, but that was an indication of like, oh, we don't speak the same language which office and that's okay and there are other things that he and I can talk about and I think that that's the thing. I think a lot of times it's easy to get offended, you know, if someone else It curious on or and it's like, you know, we don't need anyone else to cheer us on to to achieve our dreams and and just like I could never be a nurse like I just couldn't do it. There's just all that partying and then there's blood and I just I'm you have to be like, you know, somewhat sensitive to people's feel like I don't know. It's just not my role and I I think I would not want to sit here and talk with the nurse all about her, you know, like charts and what all she did like, we don't speak the same language be offended, you know, if someone doesn't she doesn't feel passionate about wanting to speak about entrepreneurship because something else some other commonality that we can talk about and I think honestly for entrepreneurs that's something that way to practice because we are so involved in our job that it sometimes we do need to step out and go what else do I have to offer besides talking about work, you know it practice and it's not fun. But but we gotta do that. We gotta find those other commonalities we do we do that is so so true. Oh my gosh. I am so loving talking to you this way. Sit tight don't go anywhere.

This is how you're supposed to feel and I think you know growing up in the South. I just thought yeah, I'm going to get married but I don't want to just be a stay-at-home mom. And listen. I know that is the hardest job in the world and I have so much respect. I mean my mom did it I think it's incredible. I just knew that I needed something else and I don't mean to use the word just I just at all you hopefully you guys know what I'm talking about, but I I should use the word only I didn't want to be only a stay-at-home mom. I wanted to have this this work and I think part of it was I just wanted to be taken seriously, you know what I mean? Like if I own my own business and my name is on it then people. To take me seriously. I don't know and I think we all kind of Desire that but it was when my husband got sick and that became really real and it was I've an option a choice my choices either way to be figure out how to turn this kind of hobby business into a legit business that makes you legit money that takes care of your family or you're going to have go work for someone else and and get a salary, you know doing that and I just was like I'm not willing to do that. My greatest motivation is time and I wanted to be able to Decide how I spend my time, right? But honestly there was there were parts of me. I mean and I go into great detail about this but I wrestled back and forth a lot with it being really resentful of you know, just my husband's illness and going I didn't ask for this. I didn't ask to be responsible for all of this. I didn't ask, you know too long to be taking you the doctor and raising three kids and figuring out how to make my business, you know financially work for us and there was part of me that was resentful and then there was a part of me that would go off. No, this is actually the most alive you've ever felt like you're actually good at this is actually and I think that that's what I go back to meaning that I think somewhere, you know, walk down the line of life. I think we were we were all born with a purpose that is placed in our heart like a purpose, right and I think over time, you know that gets Cloud into that buried and I think sometimes in order to really find that purpose we have to do the I call it the underground work..

So like what was that? Like, you know being like the main rental like how the entrepreneurship shape up for you in that instance. Well, if I'm being completely honest, I mean when I you know set out to change my own business and I really kind of thought well my husband's going to you know, he's going to take care of us, right?

I was lucky enough to own that I needed something. That was just mine my family and that thought okay, and it was almost emotional insurance if I'm being completely honest, but and I just knew that I wanted to be as present of a mom as my mom was but I wanted you know something that was mine and the only way I knew how to do that was to own my own business. And so that's what I did awesome. And you know, like I don't think a lot of women are a lot of us think about it that way like we want something that's just ours that also allows us to Freedom. To be able to do what we want to do take care of ourselves and our families at the same time, right and just to have something that is that is yours that it just isn't anyone else's you know what I mean? Like it's not my husband's it's not my kids and my whole world doesn't revolve around just these people even though they are clearly the most important thing. It's also important for me to have something that makes me in just a complete individual. That's my own thing. And so yeah, I just care what that one thing. I would have sold knives for a living did I ended up buying a wedding rental business which was funny because.

"See here. Katie in Zimmerman Minnesota the famous Katie Zimmerman. Hey, thanks for having me on. Thank you. Masculinity to me is a man who provide for a woman her. And her all in good balance. That's a balance you have such a man in your life. Once in a while he's off family, but he does pretty well. Voice to do that to being once in a while off balances also masculine. All right. Bye. Thank you. I raise this issue. Maybe ten years ago. I think it was the last time. And women called in. I said only women colon. And they all spoke about nearly all spoke about a man who takes responsibility, they found that very masculine deter that. Correct. And that is how I was raised. I was raised be a man means you get married and take care of a family that was the number one item. Not you run for president not not that you'd be a CEO that you get married and take care of a family. This is completely lost. By the way. It's very feminine to want to get married and take care of a family house that that's the irony. When when a girl says career is her number one thing that's not feminine. Just isn't doesn't make you a better person. I'm just telling you. Almost nobody. I'm not bragging. I am. Lamenting I promise you. I never want to be the only person saying something, it's it's of no. Joy in my life to be a lonely voice. When I am a lonely voice. Because I care too much about the issue. But unfortunately, I I I'm I'm lonely as a voice in this matter. I'm not alone. But it's lonely. And by the way, the very fact that men are afraid to talk this way is E masculinity. That's that's a point to be made. All.
