12:30 pm
told the american people this we can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature. for without unity, there is no peace. only bitterness and fury, no progress. only exhausting outrage. no nation. only a state of chaos, however, guessed that unity does not include those who do not bow every order of the white house. as this was the message sent on monday, by the, by the white house for the unvaccinated. your looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourself, your families and hospitals, you may soon overwhelm what happened to this theme of unity and peace, no outrage or bitterness. i guess that is easy to say when you had the impression everyone is going to go along with your wishes in your agenda. but that is not how the structure of america was created. no,
12:31 pm
this country was actually built of dissension with a ruling government and those who came to america did, which were willing to risk their life all for freedom. in fact, it is that those in history who have stood up against the mob who made the most difference even. ringback if it was not recognized until the next generation. now this brings us how rittenhouse, who was found not guilty, acquitted of all charges and the killing of 2 during the riots in kenosha wisconsin during the summer of 2020. what kyle and his supporters claimed was south to france . self defense has now been confirmed in a court of law by a diverse a jury. busy of his peers. but if you would have listened to the anger and condemnation of the media over the last year, you would have thought kyle was a cold blooded murderer. the fact that white supremacy has run the halls of congress freely and celebrate this little murderous white supremacists and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely. and today we're be asked to say that it is legal and to respect the wrong law. because
12:32 pm
a white boy deputized him so and went out in terrorized people who were actually rec, you know, using their constitutional right to protest that heil rittenhouse, who for instance, when he was released pre trial, hung out with members of the proud boys. this is the ultimate entitlement. if you look at the rittenhouse case, he cross state lines. his mamma drove him across state lines, dropped them off so that he could help the cops or do whatever he thought he was doing. and the only person who fired shots that night was written out. i didn't do anything wrong, i defended myself. i'll bologna, there's a thing about both white vigilantes and, and white tiers, particularly nail white tiers. and it makes me angry that they can't take the time to at least get a generic basic ax, correct. and because it didn't fit in the story that they wanted to tell, it makes me angry when they, the media don't get the generic facts correct?
12:33 pm
because that is exactly that. anger is why the opposite of the crowd, how they reacted monday when cal rittenhouse is a, came out on stage at a concert, a conference in las vegas. now, following the fanfare, car was still very vague about whether or not he was going to pursue legal actions against the same people who are so quick to pass judgment. so let's discuss the 2 polarized approaches, and if legal action will actually be pursued and bring in line of why no media, thanks for joining me. a huge point out to people did die and can osha and i'm not really a big fan of making kyle out to be this rock star. like bon jovi, there should be consequences for his actions. i don't necessarily agree to fan fair and the light and the music and the smoke. he does it, i'm sorry, actions. he still took 2 people lives and that does not deserve to be celebrated in any form. and that's sort of the, the impression that was given at the same time. do you think it matters what the judgment was to those the media and how they felt about kyle,
12:34 pm
for the last 2 years or even now that we have the decision? well, 1st of all, it doesn't matter what cnn and m as dnc, think it, i don't care about that, but let me just echo what you're saying. as an absolute is when it comes to the 2nd amendment and a proud believer in the inherent and natural and god given an constitution right to defend oneself. i think what he did was correct. the fact is scotty. they're using him the using him like a pond. they're dragging him out. everybody wants a documentary. there are no king him for everything he's worth, and he's enjoying this is the celebration. and once they're done with him, once he doesn't serve their purpose, he's going to be shy an hour and otto's may address this notion of his filing legal claims. and this success. beginners always as loud as being made to nick sandman, who sued up locally. see them in the washington post because if you think that that
12:35 pm
rittenhouse is in any way of knowing the payday that we believe sandman had you out of your mind, it's a completely different story, apples and oranges. so shackman was a young man who was standing there, who basically was accosted by people because he was joining his fellow a classmates as they were celebrating life or protesting abortion, or whatever was he wasn't bothering anybody. rittenhouse was a defendant, he's a, he's a public figure and it's a different story completely. so let's just get that out of the way. but scotty, why is it? and i asked his rhetorically, and actually, why is it that we care what joy weed, or anybody says this is their script? they are shadow government, radical, left these, these anarchic, neo listing merchandise, these handmaids who are handed the script. and if you notice, once they get a phrase going, they are repeated. they have no,
12:36 pm
they are of no relevance beyond negligible de minimis. it doesn't matter what they think. the point is, he was a credit. he wasn't not guilty of something. by the way, there are still may be some civil liability that he might be enjoying, so he should keep his target. if that's a bad pun, keep his, his limelight and his and his spotlight lower. well, and it's interesting they bring that up because here's where i agree with you. it's all about making money. and unfortunately we see on the republican side, they're really good about taking an issue and just putting it through the shreds and get as many pennies. you can out of it and then they drop them and the person's going, what has happened to my life? because very rarely does that money come back to them and not to point this out. but going back last week when, when cow went on the urged him saying please pursue legal action. i'll even help pay for it as an attorney if you are advising kyle on this, like you said
12:37 pm
a different situation. i don't think they saw money necessarily from a judgement coming from this, but i think they also, i think it's more about they just, they want to make money off their own to their own base. how would you advise? well the 1st thing it's, it's almost like it, scott is like a knee jerk reaction or whatever you work with or something you, you then to it's this that the salmon printable. let me explain to the whole, almost having any toes. the republicans today, these conservatives of which i am not a member by the way, at all, have this idea to put this dog and pony show distorts. was c pack, and it starts with all these have bake lousy 2nd rate country music people. and as he, hon, wave the flag or on a regular are we great and to me a trivializes. and it basically reduces, i think, a very serious and important message to almost this is this comic a stage of up, isn't it? great. now let me, let me ask you this. so the flag, the constitution america, and kyle written house,
12:38 pm
and we're supposed to clap. what exactly did he do? let me ask you something. you're a mother, you're a rational person. if your and, and i believe you, when i share a belief in the 2nd amendment as the constitution provide, if your son or daughter said, hey mom, would you drop me off? there is a riot going on 22, i'm going to bring my, you are my a are 15 is look at this man who shows up with the cap back was a yellow, friendly, friendly in this kind of like hyper militarize set. what would you think? would you say you go son, you go daughter and utilize your right and you go and render aid with your bag of medicine. and if anybody gives you a heart, it's insane. i'm not saying he was wrong to be there. i did a lot of what he there was boy scout ash, but it's loaded chorus. you don't do this, you're asking for trouble. and let me ask you something also, what if he had been a not as good a shot on his b and some innocent bystander,
12:39 pm
some civilian journalist, somebody standing there gets and they are 15 round, some nato around through the neck. i mean, this is, this is not john wayne, this is serious business here. and i think i know that i have to wonder, you know, when they have it originally to kyle. there were very few conservatives that actually said this is wrong, that he's being put through the ringer. they did not go on the major networks defending him. nobody wanted to put the target that was on him at that time on their back. but now that he's received this quite a lot of law, i just think it's very just, it's very superficial dollars that have make him out to be a hero. and i really think they should tread lightly. why no, thank you for always coming on and she's shedding your wisdom with our crowd. thank you so much for the pentagon has just laid out in detail a new policy that is meant to stop the rise of extremism within the ranks. however, could issue policy actually were strict the freedom of the men and women who are
12:40 pm
actually tasked with protecting it while discuss, let's bring an investigative journalist, been swan been of all the issues in the world. everything we're doing, we're becoming a politically correct military, which i'm sure makes all of our enemies gives them a good giggle. but now you're dealing with this new thing where they're going to go after extremist. talk me about this policy, cuz i know you've read it. it is, it's kind of an insane policy, i guess, you know, spoiler alert. you know? i was gonna say that, right? so here's the policy, right? in the past, the pentagon's already and the deities already had a policy about active military in their ranks participating in what they call extremist behaviors. right. and that includes working with extremists, organizations, planning events that are considered extremist or fundraising on behalf of those organizations. well, now they've updated the standard and now the standard is simply on social media, liking something that is considered to be extremist right now the word extreme, this is already a huge problem because who defines extremism who to find exactly what that is?
12:41 pm
it's a very vague term, however, even if you're scrolling through facebook and you like a mean or you like a picture that is posted by a group that's now considered extremist, you have now participated in extreme affinity, and you can face disciplinary action. according to the pentagon, in the d o d, it is completely in say, well, and you have to look at the majority of the military. i think this is overwhelming, is conservative slash republican. they voted time and time again in elections for republic. and so the majority of them are this way, so they go in like a republican website or conservative website, they're facing some sort of punishment. but here's where that i think the blurry line is, did the military, this policy actually define specific extreme with what that means to them, or they leaving them to the social media platforms to make that definition and trusting facebook and twitter for that. c definition, right, so they are trusting, they are trusting social media companies that are labeling things extreme is right, which is across the board, right. so it's not just conservatives on his republicans. if you're libertarian,
12:42 pm
if you're an anarcho capitalist, for instance, that would be considered to be an extremist, because you believe in, don't know, sovereign money and something called bitcoin. and so now you're considered an extremist. here's the other thing about it, is that the pentagon and the d o d r actually advocating responsibility to investigated themselves. they say we're not even going to lay out a list of organizations that you're not allowed to be a part of because that will change. instead, what they're doing is they're simply relying on essentially a snitch system where they want the members of the military to watch for each other . and then report if you see that someone's doing something that you think is extremist. here's another example. they say there's been a rise in cases of extremist behavior crimes by members of the military over the last year. so i looked at the numbers. what was this incredible rise? $2424.00 members of the military and veterans they say were involved in extremist crimes over the last year. okay, great. what about this pentagon and deep 22 veterans every single day in this
12:43 pm
country commit suicide. where the policies that are changing that were the policies that are focusing on that issue. there is what 19000000 veterans in this country right now. 19000000 and you have 24 cases. and you're going to revamp the entire policy of the pentagon in the, at the institute of snitching system so that they can monitor each other on social media. but you're going to keep it all very vague so that you can punish essentially political enemies. that's really what this comes down to talk about sabotaging yourself. because been in those situations when they're actually in a place of war or attention, they've got to trust their brother or sister to have their back. but yet that same brother is the one and possibly turned them in for liking a page like in the show, anything that they're gonna terminate streaming, right? that right, there is how you defeat, what was the greatest super power in the world military wise? let's just hope we don't do anything to get involved. i'm not to worry about how this is going to hurt future recruitment. like i said, republicans conservative. those are usually the 1st ones to enlist in the military
12:44 pm
. this would probably keep people from doing and to started if they know their rights are going to be limited. well, i think it, i think it does, and i think there's something else to play here. there is a, an active purge going on of our military right now, and the purges to remove anyone who is a freethinker. let's not everyone who likes. so, you know, a republican mean is a freethinker, but it's what they're looking for is anyone who does not follow their exact order. so that's why they have the vaccine mandates that have been put into place. that's why they're instituting these policies and extremism because they say there were 55 veterans who were at the capitol on january 6th. and so we need to know who the extremists are in our ranks. they're not looking to root out extremism. they're, they're looking to root out anyone who thinks for themselves or has a different belief in the administration, because they want a complete top down control over the minds and hearts of those members of the military. and when you politicize the military to your point, you completely lose its ability to be a successful fighting force. we do not select members of the military based on how
12:45 pm
obedient they are to a political ideology. we should be choosing them based on how much they believe in and love their country and work to defend their country. and by the way, i truly believe we should allow members of the military to speak up more and to criticize leadership. and maybe we wouldn't be in so many foreign interventions that we shouldn't be an embalming countries around the world. if we allow members of the military to speak up rather than keeping tape over their mouths, every time a terrible policy is instituted, which they're the ones in the front line who are actually watch their colleagues are the ones are having to stay for the most their families are then like, always, always great that you're on top of the story. i'm cheryl, continue to follow. i think we'll be right back at our quick break with oil and gas, manufacturing, electricity, telecom transportation, all of them now have a u. t. type of infrastructure connected to the internet for clarity,
12:46 pm
realizing this disruptive potential so that those countries kind of ignore it because it's written as national. there is a, if we take with nato and e u countries, virtually all of them subscribe to certain doctrines and maintains selling but tell us forces. they are a cyber army on behalf of a country that's their job. so look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given by human beings, except where such order is that conflict with the 1st law show your identification . we should be very careful about artificial intelligence at that point. obviously is too great trust, rather than fear i would like to take on various job with artificial intelligence, real summoning with
12:47 pm
a robot must protect its own existence with oh, is your media reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way? where are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows.
12:48 pm
should we describe our time? what is the zeitgeist, as they say? do we have a sense of direction and purpose? we also hear a lot about the desire to return to normal. what does that mean? we actually living in the new normal when you listen to a sequence of tone and you think acts is going to happen. you know, why happens instead of distinctive breathing responses in gauge that are relevant to you, how we experience, reward and pleasure? well, listening to some people looking at this is the kind of music. is it kind of choreographing of our expectations? oh okay. so left what after math because they consider racist and a symbol of white supremacy. and schools are now debating whether mash we taught
12:49 pm
the way it has been taught. now renowned university is ditching a require a requisite for admissions, and students still longer will need to submit their essay to your ac t score. to get into harvard. many other universities are already talking about following suit. is this the best idea yet to increase student count and universities, or is a glimpse into the future of a dumbed down america? for that, we ran hanby langer the president at the institute for 30. thanks for joining me, andrew. on this. always good to be on when you scottie. okay, you've gone to the college process. you have one in college. now you're going through with a senior. first of all, you went through a multiple levels of education. no, a c t score, no essay to score. is this a positive move for american universities to make? i don't think it is. i mean part it's part and parcel of this effort to get rid of the concept of meritocracy. and the, the objective meritocracy in america. this idea that you can actually have some way of looking at folks and empirically comparing folks one to the other. but there's
12:50 pm
been a movement over the course of the last 15 years to make it once again more subjective and i think students are not going to be very well served by this in long term. ok, so to get into harvard, you need to add a 1600 score there to g. i know you got that, but most people don't. but you also have to show other documentation proving you are worthy of studying and such a prestigious university. so what are they going to base their selection on at the score is no longer needed anymore. i mean, we all know that g, p a's have different ways and different skills. how do people get into schools like harvard? well, that's exactly it in the interest of disclosure, i did not get into harvard when i applied back in the late and i did apply, but i did apply. yeah, yes, i guess i did apply, but the reality is right, this is, this is the real problem. here, right, this is, you know, we, we've only been moving, we were moving as a society in order to combat historical inequities in our society. we tried to move towards a way of objectively measuring and being able to objectively compare one student to the other. now we're moving away from that. here's,
12:51 pm
here's what we know and this is one of the great problems. and especially looking if someone who is applying to colleges my, my one child is this year, it essentially becomes a gamble. i'm going to use the phrase a crapshoot because there is no way for a student who might be applying to one of these schools to really figure out if they have a shot at getting in. and that does a real disservice to those students as well. because it big, it comes down to these intangibles. now, universities have been doing this and university emissions been doing this for a very long time. now this idea of trying to find a way to get the most diverse and they can mean diverse by any kind of a definition, the most diverse entering freshman class that they can. but it comes down to intangibles how they feel that they can fit in. most of these universities will tell you that they can probably populate their freshman classes with everybody who has a 1600 on there is an a 4.0 or greater grade point average. we're all student body presidents are quarterbacks of their football teams or whomever. but they look at
12:52 pm
these other issues, these, these things, it, what it does do is it means that it comes down to the essays, the other experiences that a student has. but if you are a student who is a hard worker and is focused on your work and probably would do very well, one of these i be of the university settings. if you don't have that other intangible in there, you're going to be left in the cold and that would be a real shame. well, there's only 24 hours in a day, and i can tell you to fill those lots of things. mainly there are studies in high school, so it's hard to actually create that diverse diversity on their resume. but you know, hardware is actually assuring that emissions based on test scores will actually resume in 2027 and they've are, they're doing this because of cobra. 19 limitations for students in the testing. i understand that i respect that to a certain extent, but do you really feel like they're actually trying to diversify one partly the one night and they welcome minorities that usually don't benefit from test score missions and, and bad test taking kid doesn't matter. doesn't have a color, skin, or background people could just be bad at test taking. do you really feel like
12:53 pm
they're using these coded limitations as an excuse to really put in what they want to do all along? i think it was. i think there's, there's certainly merit to that, right, where we're getting down to this across the board in terms of public policy, in terms of outcomes and goals. that progressive left his head for a very long time. and they're using the pandemic as a pretext for implementing these things as part of the reason why we're seeing the implementation of the great reset across the board in terms of public policy build back better is certainly an example of that. so this is a manifestation of this within the college admissions program, right? and certainly as a way of trying to inculcate the kinds of progressive values and outlooks that the progresses have been trying to do with the university level for a long time. course migrate, fear is that once again will be left in a situation where they're focused on less about diversity of thought and more about the diversity of genetics. which of course, is not what these universities necessarily need. which is interesting because it's all about the bank account and universities like harvard or trying to increase
12:54 pm
their student count with ones that have $54000.02 pay per year. what is that better be? it would be a better option. how about you just lower the cost that the average person could try to get in without having to worry about the overall cost and total they pay at the end of 4 years. well, right, it's about that and it's about the endowments themselves. i mean, this is certainly the perennial issue. the fact remains right, that it's us government policy that is going to dictate these outrageous tuition, the more the government is willing to pay or, or bankroll these students are, the more these universities are able to charge. and they're able to get that always ready to chat with you and your best wishes to your the young daughter may she get into the school of her dreams and that you can actually afford it. god bless you. god bless you. we've all heard that alcohol consumption is on the rise during the pandemic. and you can see why. but what we're just realizing now is that changes in state laws regarding alcohol sales are likely fueling this other pandemic of alcoholism. our teeth. enrique rivera has this report a
12:55 pm
devastating pandemic that has taken 800000 lives, subsequent locked down to shattered the lives of many more. the united states has stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to dealing with a deadly highly contagious disease on the one hand and the social cost of dealing with it on the other. no, where is this dilemma felt more than in the arena? alcohol consumption. one study found that drinking rose 14 percent overall and 41 percent among women. another study found that 17 percent of americans reported heavy drinking during the pandemic. heavy drinking is defined as getting drunk 2 days out of the week for 2 weeks out of the month. and perhaps unwittingly, dozens of states have encouraged this drinking by relaxing their laws on the sale of alcohol. in fact, the cocktails to go was illegal in all 50 us states with few notable exceptions, granted to cities like new orleans. but when the pandemic began, 31 states allowed restaurants and bars to serve cocktails to go. and 16 of these
12:56 pm
states they made cocktails to go a permanent law. and in the other 15, they extended the temporary relief to 2 to 5 years. although alcohol delivery was legal for most states before the pandemic, 7 states, alabama, arkansas, georgia, mississippi, new mexico, oklahoma with 3 ginia, joined in on the party post ben demick. and it just so happens that these are some of the poor states and the countries ones that are already susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse. supporters of these measure say they've been needed to keep businesses, particularly small businesses afloat during what are tough times the tractors argue whether it's small businesses or big businesses that are really benefiting. and more importantly, they point out that these measures are likely contributing to the pandemic within the pandemic. the gross of the deadly disease of alcoholism in the midst of a just as deadly highly contagious respiratory disease cove, 1940. i'm enrique rivera, and that's all the time we ever today show. but i promise this is a conversation which will continue and how we do that. oh, me on twitter at friday and you the,
