Brothers Who Teach does not shy away from the hot topics! Some people have said the new AP African-American Studies course is indoctrinating. For this episode, we brought in someone who has actually read through the curriculum: James Uhler is assistant academic dean at Christ School, has worked with The College Board in helping design the curriculum for AP US History, and has taught his own semester-long African-American History course. We talk with him about Ron DeSantis' claims about AP African-American Studies: first, if Black history should be a standalone subject (4:40), then if the specific parts of the course that DeSantis criticized are problematic or not (9:18), and what if anything in the latest curriculum update could be used to provoke the culture war (19:45). We then take a step back from this specific course and talk about why courses like this, that focus on one identity or time period, are important (29:30), and why there is paranoia around school curricula in general (35:00). Then James tells us a story about students in his African-American History class learning a lesson from the real world (48:45), and Joe tries to change his luck and actually answer a trivia question correctly for a change (52:20).

Accepted: A College Admissions Podcast
This week, admissions expert Tyler Kusunoki dives into the recent controversy around the College Board stripping down its curriculum of the AP African American studies course for high school students. He discusses details surrounding the case, and what this could mean for education at large.
Welcome to the Dark History podcast. Okay, so we can't talk about SATs and college admission without mentioning Aunt Becky. That scandal kind of blew the whole thing open. But Aunt Becky wasn't the first person ever to use money to help her kid get into college. Far from it. And there is one element of college admissions where there is a lot of money floating around, too much money. I mean we're talking billion-dollar industry money…the SATs. In today's episode, we look into the history of the SATs, how it started, why we have it, why there's so much money in it, and try to figure out who the f is even on The College Board. Who is it???

Gwinnett County police are investigating the death of a teen who was found dead on Paden Mill Trail in unincorporated Lawrenceville. The 16-year-old male's body was found at about 1:05 p.m. behind a house located at 651 Paden Mill Trail. Police discovered the body while visiting the house to conduct a follow up on a missing person's case that they were investigating. The teen had been shot. Anyone who has information about the teen's death is asked to call detectives or Crime Stoppers, which lets tipsters remain anonymous. Please head to Gwinnett Daily Post dot com for more updates. The Georgia Department of Education recently released the list of AP Honors Schools — with 23 Gwinnett County public high schools making one or more of the lists. Several Gwinnett schools were recognized in more than one category. Paul Duke STEM High School and Mountain View High School made the list in all seven categories in which they are eligible while Archer, Brookwood, Dacula, Duluth, Grayson, Lanier, and Mountain View high schools made the list in six of the seven categories in which they are eligible. DeNelle West, Gwinnett County Public Schools' Chief Learning Officer, says the recognition is a testament to the dedication of the district's educators. AP exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning at the high school level. Students who earn a 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam may receive college credit. The 2023 AP Honor Schools were named in eight categories, based on the results of 2022 AP courses and exams. Please head over to Gwinnett Daily Post dot com for a full list of schools and honors. The Sip & Swine BBQ Festival not only touts some of the best Kansas City-style barbecue in America, but it also impacts the future in extremely positive ways. The festival is set Friday and Saturday at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville. More than 100 professional and shade-tree barbecue competitors from 12 states and two continents will vie for the coveted People's Choice Tasting award in an event sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. Admission and parking are free for the two-day porcine extravaganza, which will also feature some 80 craft vendors and 40 food vendors. Now in its eighth year, the Sip & Swine BBQ Festival was originally established as a fundraiser for Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children's Shelter in Buford. Home of Hope is focused on ending homelessness two generations at a time, providing service for homeless infants and children up to 17 years old, along with their young mothers. The nonprofit also aids teenagers aging out of the foster care system. The festival has grown to feature bands, crafts and family-friendly activities, and this year's event is expected to be the largest to date. Proceeds from competition and vendor fees, raffle ticket sales and the purchase of People's Choice Taster Kits all go Home of Hope. Thus far, the festival has raised $742,000 on behalf of the children's shelter. For more information about the Sip & Swine BBQ Festival, visit Sips and Swine dot com.

Maybe he's buying comic books at Galactic Quest before heading over to Strange Taco for dinner? We'll leave that to the pundits, both inside and outside the peanut gallery, to debate. Regardless of whether you believe in aliens or not, Lawrenceville has notched a Number 1 ranking on what some people might consider a weird list: the most likely places in America to see a UFO. According to BonusFinder.com, you have a higher chance of seeing strange objects in the sky over Lawrenceville than you are in the skies over places such as Sedona, Arizona, and Greenville, South Carolina (which came in at Numbers 2 and 3 on the list, respectively), or the state capitol of Pennsylvania — Harrisburg — which is Number 4 on the list. BonusFinder.com ranked cities based on how many sightings there have been for every 10,000 residents rather than total number of sightings. Sedona, with 96 sightings, would be Number 1 if the latter criteria were the determining factor since Lawrenceville only had 67 sightings. But, it's sightings per capita that determined the rankings, and Lawrenceville — which is home to Gwinnett County Airport at Briscoe Field by the way — was Number 1 in that regard. The city reached the top spot with 144.64 alleged sightings per 10,000 people, according to BonusFinder.com. The sightings lasted, on average, 15.47 minutes. Lanier High School has earned the College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science A. Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have achieved 50% or higher female exam taker representation in one or both AP computer science courses, or a percentage of female computer science exam takers that meet or exceed that of the school's female population. Sallie Holloway, Gwinnett County Public Schools' Director of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science, says the award is an acknowledgement of Lanier High School's commitment to inclusivity. More than 1,100 institutions achieved either 50% or higher female representation in one of the two AP computer science courses or a percentage of the female computer science exam takers meeting or exceeding that of the school's female population during the 2021-22 school year. In 2022, Lanier High School was one of 209 schools recognized in the category of AP CSA, and the only school in Gwinnett County to be recognized. Lanier has worked with its partner, State Farm IT, and the cluster schools to create a culture that supports more diversity in computing and other STEM fields and are seeing the fruits of this labor. Beyond the College Board recognition, Lanier High has always been well-represented at the National Center for Women & Information Technology local and national awards. The school regularly sees dozens of girls recognized at the Georgia awards ceremony. Additionally, Lanier has had five girls recognized nationally, including a national honorable mention for Valentina Diaz Romero and national winner Makenna Reilly for 2023 In its long and distinguished history, Buford High School has won untold state championships in just about every sport. And now the time has come to make some room on the school's trophy display for the school's latest state crown. On February 24, Buford's Game Day Cheerleading squad won the Class AAAAAA state championship at Columbus State College. It was the team's first state title in its four-year history. Co-Coach Caroline Parker said the competition – which began with 16 teams in the preliminary round and had eight in the final round – called on squads to showcase their skills in band chant, a crowd-leading cheer, and a routine that accompanies their school's fight song. The 24-member squad – which was selected last April – is made up of cheerleaders for the Wolves' football and basketball games. Now that they know just exactly what it takes to win a state championship, the next season will serve as a lesson on how to effectively defend that championship. There were six seniors on the 2023 team and Parker said she was pleased they were graduating on such a high note. And those involved will get to take a brief break, although it won't be long before the title defense begins, as tryouts begin in three weeks.

Why did the College Board, which oversees Advanced Placement classes, change certain parts of the AP African American studies course framework? Post Reports digs into the latest controversy about the new AP course, still in its pilot stages.Read more:After Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis came out against the new AP African American studies course, it sparked a controversy. The state said it wouldn't allow students to take the class because it lacked educational value.Then the College Board changed the course framework just in time for its debut on the first day of Black History Month. Many questioned whether conservative leaders prompted changes to the program. Where the word “systemic” was mentioned in the previous plan for the class, it was completely removed from the new one. The same with other topics, such as Black Lives Matter and reparations, which went from 15 mentions in April 2022 to one in February 2023. Education reporter Nick Anderson breaks down what happened to AP African American studies and why these changes occurred in the first place.

The Round Table: A Next Generation Politics Podcast
At this week's Round Table, Jack, Kenisha, Madeline and Vanessa recorded the podcast together live in the P & T Knitwear podcast studio on the Lower East Side of New York City, which was super fun. Sparked by the recent controversy around the College Board's modification of its Advanced Placement African American Studies course, seemingly in response to criticism from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis that it would violate recently- passed Florida laws banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory, we talked about how history is taught, the lenses it's taught through, and the lenses we'd LIKE to see it taught through, honing in on what we'd like to see history curricula look like going forward (hint: it shouldn't be lecture based…) We talked through what specifically has been removed from the new AP curriculum and our feelings about things like SHOULD African American Studies be taught separately from regular history or should there be more emphasis on infusing more African American studies into ALL the APs. We shared concerns about what qualifications teachers will need to teach African American Studies–and what that means in terms of which schools will ACTUALLY teach it? We shared concerns about how to cover the vast swaths of history expected, which leads to teaching to the test rather than to teaching for depth. We also voiced concerns about the removal of contemporary issues from the AP curricula, as well as removing secondary scholars like bell hooks who provide insight about the systemic undergirding of these issues, and our sense of the agenda behind that being to make racism and disparities seem like they are in the past and that we've moved beyond these forces as a nation.This plays into our larger concern about the trend of trying to wrap up history with a neat little bow, making us miss the shades of gray and the modern relevance—which is a problem more broadly in school. The point should be to make us think more deeply, not to erase the nuances. More broadly, we grappled with the question of whether politics and history are inextricable, particularly in trying to separate historical injustices from what's happening today. We feel that it does a disservice to history to try to separate the two, and that it does a disservice to students to not teach them that there are some problems that we haven't yet solved. The point of school should be to make us independent, capable thinkers–therefore ingraining facts rather than challenging us to use content to think about important issues misses the mark. We did acknowledge that despite the critical lens we are sharing in response to recent revisions, we celebrate the critical need for an African American Studies AP course and applaud the College Board's attempts to address this need.

When the College Board removed concepts like “intersectionality, mass incarceration, reparations, and the Black Lives Matter movement” from its Advanced Placement African American Studies course, both educators and students were alarmed. These changes are just one of the results of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' 'Stop “Wrongs to our Kids and Employees” Act,' otherwise known as the Stop W.O.K.E. Act, passed in 2022. Guest host Natasha Alford, Senior Correspondent for The Grio, speaks with Dr. Keisha Blain of Brown University and Sommer Brugal, reporter at the Miami Herald to learn how the policy is affecting students right now. Next Amara Abdullah, a student organizer and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Youth Vanguard talks about her work for justice for Black students in schools, and author Marisa Renee Lee describes collective grief and how the erasure of Black history prevents necessary healing.
In 2021, College Board announced that I would be piloting a new AP African-American Studies course beginning in the 2022-2023 school year. Since this announcement, the course has been the target of both celebration and consternation across the country. Upper School English and history Department Chairs Marcus Smith and Ted Dickson, respectively, are at the helm of PD's effort to bring AP African-American Studies to the classroom. How'd they do it? Hear from them in this special Black History Month episode, hosted by Will McCorn.

Black Studies is not about inclusion. It's about disruption – which is why some fear it. Black Studies is under partisan attack, not only in Florida but around the country. With the effort to eliminate the field of study comes the erasure of scholarship and activism. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, African American studies professor at Northwestern University and author of the book “Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership,” has faced this firsthand. Taylor has been removed from the College Board's A.P. African American studies course, and continues to be threatened. She joins host Kai Wright to discuss the real ideas behind Black Studies and her new magazine Hammer & Hope, which centers Black politics and culture. Companion listening for this episode: American Political Myths Have Consequences For Us All (2/9/2023) From the “Southern Strategy” to the civil rights movement, we're surfacing what is true about our nation's past, and what is propaganda masquerading as history. “Notes from America” airs live on Sunday evenings at 6pm ET.

Tests and the Rest: College Admissions Industry Podcast
Politicians rarely weigh in on what students are taught in school and usually act from a non-academic agenda when they do. The announcements of new AP African American Studies and Precalculus courses have attracted far more negative attention than honors classes typically do. Why? Amy and Mike invited educator John Moscatiello to unpack the controversies around new Advanced Placement programs. What are five things you will learn in this episode? 1. Why is the College Board introducing AP African American Studies and Precalculus courses? 2. Why hasn't this announcement gone smoothly? 3. What is the controversy around the AP African American Studies course? 4. What is the controversy around the AP Precalculus course? 5. What should we expect for these courses in the near future? MEET OUR GUEST John Moscatiello has been a leader in the education space for the past two decades. His career began at the Princeton Review, where he taught the SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, AP Exams, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT Verbal, and TOEFL. At the Princeton Review, John went on to train hundreds of teachers, write content for 13 test preparation books, and work as a college admissions consultant. In his capacity as the National Director of Tutoring from 2007 and 2009, John managed thousands of teachers and tutors, supporting them with online professional development and the creation of an online community. From 2015 to 2016, John starred in more than 200 educational videos for the Princeton Review's SAT, ACT, and GRE self-paced courses. John's academic career began as a Spanish major at New York University, where he realized the value of the AP Program by using credits to graduate a full year early. He then pursued graduate degrees in history from Fordham University and the University of Notre Dame, where he won awards for his undergraduate teaching. He was a Fulbright scholar to Spain in 2012 and worked at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) in Madrid. John's academic research has been published in both English and Spanish. He currently teaches part-time at a private high school in Princeton, New Jersey. John has supported thousands of students by building and implementing programs for underserved communities through the Peter Jay Sharp Foundation, TEAK Fellowship, NYC Service, Corporate and Social Responsibility at Proskauer Rose LLP, and the Aga Khan Development Network. John's tutoring and NGO work has taken him to more than 10 states and 25 countries around the world, especially in Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, and East Africa.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 3: On Thursday, President Joe Biden held a press conference to address the three mysterious objects U.S. fighter jets shot down last weekend. Biden stated that government officials still don't know for certain what the objects are, but said they were likely balloons tied to private companies or research institutions. Did the U.S. shootdown a $12 balloon with a $470,000 missile? While appearing on Anthony Scaramucci's podcast, Chris Cuomo revealed that he wanted to “kill everybody” when he found out that CNN had fired him—then bizarrely blamed his fiery temper on being Italian. On MSNBC, Joy Reid and Al Sharpton outlandishly compared Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' fight with the College Board over “woke” propaganda in school curriculum to slaveholders who prevented Black Americans from learning to read. According to Thomas Catenacci of Fox News, the Biden Administration has turned down a federal disaster assistance request from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine following a train derailment that resulted in toxic chemicals being released into the air and water supply of East Palestine, Ohio. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) didn't believe “the incident qualified as a traditional disaster, such as a tornado or hurricane.”

Last month, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his state would opt out of the new Advanced Placement class in African American studies. DeSantis claimed the class violated a Florida law that limits what a public school can teach about race and diversity. He took this action in spite of the fact the College Board, which designs A.P. classes, seemingly altered the curriculum based on previous DeSantis criticisms. The move is “dangerous,” according to Basil Smikle. Smikle is the director of the public policy program at Hunter College and expert on civil rights and education policy. He joined Diane on this week's episode of On My Mind to explain why education finds itself yet again at the center of national politics.
The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (02/16/2023): 3:05pm- While speaking at Rutgers University on Wednesday, Governor Phil Murphy pledged to make the state of New Jersey entirely dependent upon clean energy by 2035—fifteen years sooner than the state's prior zero emissions goal. Gov. Murphy joked that he would not remove residents' gas stoves but would increase options available for purchase by consumers. However, moments later, Murphy revealed electric vehicles will be the only type of new car available for sale in New Jersey by 2035. So, isn't he limiting consumer choice? 3:25pm- The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City will rehear a case where several biological female high school athletes allege they were forced to compete against transgender athletes—putting them at a disadvantage. The female athletes are being represented by attorneys from the Alliance Defending Freedom, an organization which has vowed to protect the future of women's sports. 3:45pm- Regina Egea—President of the Garden State Initiative and former Chief of Staff to Governor Chris Christie—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss Gov. Phil Murphy's recent pledge to get New Jersey to 100% renewable energy by 2035, including all new cars sold in the state running on electricity. 4:05pm- On Thursday, Senator John Fetterman's (D-PA) office announced that he has been voluntarily hospitalized and is receiving treatment for clinical depression at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Last week, Fetterman was hospitalized for several days with light headedness. 4:30pm- How will John Fetterman's health impact his ability to serve in the United States Senate? 4:40pm- A Philadelphia gas station has begun playing classical music as part of an effort to dissuade loiterers—but don't people like classical music? Rich and callers come up with a list of terrible, annoying songs that would cause people to run from Speedway gas stations! 5:00pm- On Thursday, President Joe Biden held a press conference to address the three mysterious objects U.S. fighter jets shot down last weekend. Biden stated that government officials still don't know for certain what the objects are, but said they were likely balloons tied to private companies or research institutions.

Outlays reached 24.8% of GDP last year, far above the 21% 50-year average.” They conclude that the current rate of government spending is not sustainable.

The Majority Report with Sam Seder
Sam and Emma host Julia Rock, staff reporter at The Lever, to discuss her recent reporting on the Norfolk Southern train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, as well as recent meetings surrounding restaurant union negotiations. Then, they're joined by Suzanne Nossel, CEO of PENAmerica, to discuss the organization's efforts to combat censorship efforts at the state level by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Dianne Feistein's tentative retirement, Arizona's Nitric Acid spill, Idaho's ban on gender-affirming care, Oklahoma stripping a Lesbian mom of her parental rights, and the GOP getting upset over the FTC doing its job, before diving deeper into the House Republican's frantic search for SOMETHING to cut, as the Senate GOP takes defense (even the woke stuff), social security, and medicare off of the table. Julie Rock then joins as she dives right into the recent regulatory debacle in East Palestine, walking through the last decade of deregulation of the freight rail industry, an age dubbed the “buyback era” by workers as their employers purchased stocks for the C-Suite while cutting spending on infrastructure, inspections, and workforce and safety redundancy, before looking to the role of lobbying in ensuring this deregulation, focusing particularly on the freight industry's promotion of a mechanical break upgrade, only to turn around and object to any attempt to regulate the implementation of these breaks while carrying hazardous products, successfully having the Trump administration repeal the requirements while Pete Buttigieg has continued to lag on its reimplementation. Rock then shifts to her recent experiences sitting in on a National Restaraunt Association conference where NLRB General Council spoke on her agency's crackdown on union-busting tactics in the industry, the fear held by C-Suites nationwide of Gen-Z labor organizing, and the tactics the corporations are looking to employ moving forwards. Next, Suzanne Nossel parses through how her work on censorship has progressed over the last decade, shifting from hyper-localized protests by parents to a full-scale legislative assault from state governments, walking through the myriad education-based restrictions coming out of Governor DeSantis' office in Florida and the massive difference between interpersonal disputes over speech and authoritarianism at the invocation of the state, before wrapping up the interview by tackling the specifics of the College Board's battle over AP African American history. And in the Fun Half: Sma and Emma discuss Minnesota's trans refuge bill, what it can do to fight back against the gender-affirming care bans cropping up across the US, and parse through Tim Pool running coverage for both the corporations and regulators responsible for East Palestine's chemical catastrophe, which Dion from Kentucky helps them expand on. Patrick from LA then walks Sam and Emma through an extended Men's Rights hypothetical that begins with reproductive rights for all pronouns and ends with balancing the rights of courageous men with those of blue-haired cows (women), plus, your calls and IMs!

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 3: Who Won Social Media? While on Fox News with Sean Hannity, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced he has launched an investigation into big tech's alleged collusion with federal government officials. According to Patrick Reilly of The New York Post, approximately 150 “students walked out of a New Hampshire school in protest of the district banning the use of urinals and shared spaces in locker rooms.” While on MSNBC with Nicolle Wallace, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten condemned Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for objecting to the College Board's AP African American Studies (APAAS) course for public high schools. DeSantis explained the proposed course included things like “queer theory” and “abolishing prisons”—topics not relevant to African American history. When will Joe Biden address the mysterious flying objects that have been shot-down across the country? Even Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Congressman Jim Himes (D-CT) have grown frustrated with the lack of transparency coming from the White House. Former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has announced she is running for President in 2024. As of now, the only declared candidates are Haley and former President Donald Trump. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced she will not seek reelection in 2024. She was first elected to the United States Senate in 1992. Representatives Adam Schiff and Katie Porter have already announced their intention to run for the soon-to-be vacant seat. Zeoli is preempted for Penn State basketball!
The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (02/14/2023): 3:05pm- On Tuesday, President Joe Biden spoke at the National Association of Counties legislative conference. During his speech, President Biden touted 6.4% inflation—despite it being three times higher than the Federal Reserve's targeted inflation rate of 2%. Biden also implored domestic oil companies to invest heavily in production capacity increases, claiming that his pledge to push towards an economy consisting exclusively of renewable energies shouldn't have an impact on the investment decisions of oil and gas executives. 3:20pm- Ohio Governor Mark DeWine held a press conference addressing the February 3rd freight train derailment which resulted in the release of toxic chemicals in East Palestine near the Ohio-Pennsylvania border. Tom Perkins of The Guardian reports one of the chemicals released into the community was phosgene, which “is a highly toxic gas that can cause vomiting and breathing trouble, and was used as a weapon in the first world war.” Should residents be concerned about health consequences? Why aren't government officials being more forthcoming with information? 3:45pm- While speaking with reporters, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said President Joe Biden has no plans to make a public address regarding the mysterious flying objects that have been shot-down across the country. 4:00pm- Dr. Patrick Moore—co-founder of Greenpeace & author of “Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom”—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss how sonar surveys for wind turbine construction off the coast of New Jersey may be the cause of a suddenly massive number of whales being beached and killed. Why aren't government officials, like Governor Phil Murphy, halting the environmentally problematic surveys? 4:35pm- How do "asexual" people celebrate Valentine's Day? The Washington Post's Samantha Chery answers that question in her latest opinion editorial. Happy Valentine's Day! 4:50pm- Appearing on Fox News with Tucker Carlson, Senator JD Vance (R-OH) updated viewers on the environmental disaster currently unfolding in East Palestine, Ohio—why aren't mainstream outlets devoting more time towards covering this story? Meanwhile, MSNBC's Joy Reid blamed the train derailment on former presidents Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan…what?! 5:00pm- Who Won Social Media? 5:05pm- While on Fox News with Sean Hannity, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced he has launched an investigation into big tech's alleged collusion with federal government officials. 5:35pm- According to Patrick Reilly of The New York Post, approximately 150 “students walked out of a New Hampshire school in protest of the district banning the use of urinals and shared spaces in locker rooms.” 5:40pm- While on MSNBC with Nicolle Wallace, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten condemned Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for objecting to the College Board's AP African American Studies (APAAS) course for public high schools.

Countdown with Keith Olbermann
EPISODE 133: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:43) SPECIAL COMMENT: To try to score cheap political points about the downing of the Chinese Spy Balloon, Marjorie Taylor Greene stood before an Idaho Lincoln Day Dinner and defecated on the memory of the dead of 9/11 and the heroes of Flight 93. She actually claimed that the argument that shooting it down over the mainland was "bullshit" because "Do you guys remember on 9/11 when an airplane crashed in Pennsylvania? A jetliner? Remember that? It didn't kill anybody on the ground! It killed everyone on board! But it didn't kill anyone on the ground!" She must resign from Congress immediately, or be expelled, because even for her this is disgraceful and intolerable.

The speaker of the Tennessee state House says that Tennessee should stop accepting the almost $1.8 billion dollars in education funding from the federal government. Ron DeSantis suggested yesterday that he wants to reevaluate the state's relationship with the College Board altogether. A new report was released by the CDC yesterday from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey states that almost 15% of teen girls were forced to have sex, an increase of 27% over two years.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 3: Super Bowl Commercial Review: Everyone loves Ben Affleck (except Rich) following his appearance in a Dunkin Donuts commercial and, in a world where everyone gets cancelled, how on earth is Ezra Miller still starring in D.C. 's “The Flash”? Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has accused Politico of misrepresenting a letter he signed declaring that the Hunter Biden “laptop story” was merely Russian disinformation being used to manipulate American voters prior to the 2020 presidential election. Earlier this month, Governor Ron DeSantis petitioned the College Board to alter its AP African American Studies (APAAS) course for public high schools. DeSantis explained the proposed course included things like “queer theory” and “abolishing prisons”—topics not relevant to African American history. After initially appearing to remove progressive propaganda from the course, the College Board has now indicated it will not make the alterations being requested. According to Stanley Krutz of National Review, Gov. DeSantis “has not formally accepted APAAS as a for-credit course in Florida.”
The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (02/13/2023): 3:05pm- On February 3rd, a freight train consisting of roughly fifty rail cars—ten of which were carrying hazardous materials—derailed in East Palestine near the Ohio-Pennsylvania border. According to reports, emergency crews purposefully ignited the contents of several rail cars, attempting to burn-off toxic chemicals. According to The Hill, three more hazardous chemicals have been discovered at the scene of the derailment. Meanwhile, Tom Perkins of The Guardian reports one of the chemicals released is phosgene, which “is a highly toxic gas that can cause vomiting and breathing trouble, and was used as a weapon in the first world war.” Should residents be concerned about health consequences? 3:20pm- On Sunday afternoon, United States fighter jets shot down a fourth mysterious flying object—this time flying 20,000 feet above Lake Huron, Michigan. In a news conference following the shootdown, Air Force General Glen VanHerck suggested the objects did not pose a military threat—though, he would not speculate on the origins of the objects. Why won't the Biden Administration be more forthcoming with information? 3:40pm- In a statement released on Monday, Senator JD Vance (R-OH) wrote of the Ohio train derailment, “[t]he local fire department has borne the brunt of this catastrophe, and they need resources from FEMA to decontaminate equipment and ensure they continue to operate.” 4:00pm- Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs John Kirby held a press conference on Monday to address the three flying objects that U.S. fighter jets shot down between Friday evening and Sunday afternoon. Despite speaking with the press for an extended period of time, Kirby offered no hints as to what the objects were or from where they may have originated. 4:10pm- While speaking with George Stephanopoulos on “This Week,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) seemed to suggest that the objects most recently shot down, according to intelligence meetings he has been a part of, are likely Chinese reconnaissance instruments. Contradicting Sen. Schumer, Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) of the House Intel Committee told Chuck Todd that he would be surprised if the most recent flying objects were of Chinese origin. 4:30pm- While appearing at the National Association of Counties Conference, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg did not address the massive train derailment in Ohio—but, bizarrely, did have time to discuss how too many white construction workers are employed in non-white neighborhoods. 4:35pm- Henry continues to insist that the mysterious flying objects are actually extraterrestrials… 4:40pm- Speaking from Brussels, Belgium on Monday, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stated, “the three objects taken down this weekend are very different from what we were talking about last week.” Sec. Austin also noted that debris has not yet been recovered and he's uncertain if the flying objects were meant to gather intelligence. 4:55pm- Chris Stapleton performed an incredible rendition of the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles. 5:00pm- Super Bowl Commercial Review: Everyone loves Ben Affleck (except Rich) following his appearance in a Dunkin Donuts commercial and, in a world where everyone gets cancelled, how on earth is Ezra Miller still starring in D.C. 's “The Flash”? 5:25pm- Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has accused Politico of misrepresenting a letter he signed declaring that the Hunter Biden “laptop story” was merely Russian disinformation being used to manipulate American voters prior to the 2020 presidential election. 5:45pm- Earlier this month, Governor Ron DeSantis petitioned the College Board to alter its AP African American Studies (APAAS) course for public high schools. DeSantis explained the proposed course included things like “queer theory” and “abolishing prisons”—topics not relevant to African American history. After initially appearing to remove progressive propaganda from the course, the College Board has now indicated it will not make the alterations being requested. According to Stanley Krutz of National Review, Gov. DeSantis “has not formally accepted APAAS as a for-credit course in Florida.” 6:05pm- In response to the Ohio train derailment, Congressman Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) tweeted: “Nearly 1 million pounds of vinyl chloride were on this train. Now, the EPA has confirmed it's entered the Ohio River basin…This is one of the deadliest environmental emergencies in decades and no one is talking about it.” 6:35pm- Why is no one talking about the Ohio train derailment? CBS News, ABC News, and NBC News don't have the story prominently featured on their webpages. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is imploring Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to address the derailment and offer information about the dangerous chemicals that have subsequently been released. 6:50pm- Mystery Movie Clip!
Stanley Kurtz joins the Mark Bauerlein to discuss three recent National Review articles on the AP's African studies program, the AP's marxist teachers guide, the College Board's ultimate capitulation.

Today's headlines: Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl 38-35 against the Philadelphia Eagles last night. An unidentified object was shot down Friday afternoon over Alaskan airspace, and one in Canada on Saturday. The DOJ special counsel who's overseeing the January 6th investigations into Donald Trump subpoenaed Mike Pence to testify. A newly released letter from the Florida Department of Education to the College Board outlined the repeated discussions that both parties had throughout the past year regarding the curriculum change. The US Agency for International Development announced that it will provide $85 million dollars in funding to Turkey and Syria. Finally, we have another congressional representative with questions about their alleged background: Newly elected representative Anna Paulina Luna.

From the “Southern Strategy” to the civil rights movement, we're surfacing what is true about our nation's past, and what is propaganda masquerading as history. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made headlines again after striking down the College Board's Advance Placement course on African American Studies in the state. Simultaneously, the College Board was making changes to the curriculum that some critics claim, omits key details from the history. Schools are common sites of cultural provocation and a key component of the ongoing history wars. To help explain the myths of our nation's past and who is telling them, host Kai Wright speaks with Kevin M. Kruse, professor of history at Princeton University and co-author of the book "Myth America: Historians Take On the Biggest Legends and Lies About Our Past." They discuss how political misunderstandings both old and new, influence American democracy. The True Story of Critical Race Theory (10/11/2021) Is racism a permanent fixture of society? Host Kai Wright is joined by Jelani Cobb, staff writer for The New Yorker, to unravel the history of Derrick Bell's quest to answer that question and how it led to our present debate over critical race theory. “Notes from America” airs live on Sunday evenings at 6pm ET. The podcast episodes are lightly edited from our live broadcasts. To catch all the action, tune into the show on Sunday nights via the stream on notesfromamerica.org or on WNYC's YouTube channel.

Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut observing how the Grammys may have been many on the right's biggest nightmare, as a celebration of everything many prominent GOP leaders apparently fear in terms of diversity and inclusion, broadcast to an audience of millions. Also in this episode, the Florida governor's efforts to whitewash history preceded some very controversial changes by the College Board to a proposed AP African American studies course. Kimberlé Crenshaw, one of the scholars expunged from the tested portion of the course, joins us with her thoughts. We also talk to an executive with the College Board for its side of the controversy. Plus, we are on the eve of President Biden's State of the Union Address following a year of impressive victories. Now, he looks ahead to an increasingly likely re-election campaign. Jaime Harrison, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, joins The ReidOut to discuss. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
The College Board piloted an AP course on African American Studies. Then, after conservative pushback, it debuted a revised curriculum. But the group insists it's not caving to political pressure. This episode was produced by Siona Peterous and Hady Mawajdeh, fact-checked by Laura Bullard, engineered by Patrick Boyd, and edited by Matt Collette and Noel King, who also hosted.

After Florida Governor Ron DeSantis banned the new AP African American studies course from the state, the College Board released a revised version of the course that many are saying is missing key elements of history. Noliwe Rooks, department chair and professor of Africana studies at Brown University, reflects on what's in, and what students will be missing from the course as it now is.
The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell
Tonight on The Last Word: President Biden says the latest jobs report shows the “economic plan is working.” Also, House Republicans wear AR-15 lapel pins on Capitol Hill during National Gun Violence Survivors Week. Plus, Tennessee Democrats blast GOP Gov. Lee's block on federal HIV funds. And the College Board denies changes to the AP African American Studies course due to Florida Gov. DeSantis' criticism. Darrick Hamilton, Rep. Debbie Dingell, Tennessee State Rep. John Ray Clemmons, Mia Cotton and Reginald Ellis join Ali Velshi.
Julio and guest co-host Renée Graham, opinion columnist and associate editor at The Boston Globe, discuss Tyre Nichols' funeral and the white supremacy behind the undercounted number of police violence cases in the U.S. They also discuss the College Board's amendments to its AP African American Studies course, which were made shortly after Gov. Ron DeSantis rejected the course in the state of Florida. And, they unpack the recent vote to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Republican Nikki Haley's run for presidency. ITT Staff Picks: “With the police killing of Nichols, the wash-rinse-repeat cycle has begun anew. There have been protests, though nowhere near as large or diverse as those in 2020. Black people, as usual, are doing the heavy lifting. There are talks again about reviving the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act that previously stalled in the Senate. But it'll never get through House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's extremist puppet masters,” writes Renée Graham in this piece for The Boston Globe. John Nichols writes about Rep. Ilhan Omar's record on foreign policy and states that despite her removal from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, she will not be silenced, in this article for The Nation. Marcus Anthony Hunter writes about how the African American story is also the American story, and yet it is an uphill battle to teach African American history in light of Gov. DeSantis' decision, in this article for the LA Times. Photo credit: AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File

On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show, Brian Mudd from WJNO fills in for Mark. Would Tyre Nichols be alive today if not for Black Lives Matter and their nonstop hatred of law enforcement? The Memphis Police force has been lacking in numbers since BLM and forced hiring standards were lowered to join the force, and even lifted a ban on hiring convicted felons. Two of the five officers involved in Nichols' death were hired because of these lower standards. At the same time, Gov. Ron DeSantis refusing to play along with the woke agenda forced the College Board to pull back on their AP African American studies course. It exposed who was behind this radically woke agenda fashioned as education, designed by a radical Marxist professor who wants to abolish the police. This is why President Biden and his Department of Justice intimidated parents who came to schoolboard meetings to stop this being taught to their kids. Also, our national debt is so high that each individual now owes about a quarter of a million dollars thanks to the Biden Administration's endless spending. The economy is plummeting, inflation is through the roof, and interest rates keep rising because of Biden policies and actions since day 1, but Democrats don't care as long as Trump is gone.

One father of a “trans” six year old testified in favor of the bill. His testimony is being hailed as “heroic” and “beautiful” by the Left, but I have a different take. Also, the College Board makes changes to its AP African American studies course after pushback from conservatives.

The Majority Report with Sam Seder
Emma hosts Laura Katz Olson, professor of Political Science at Lehigh University, to discuss her recent book Ethically Challenged: Private Equity Storms U.S. Healthcare. First, Emma runs through updates on the Fed approving another interest hike as they continue their push against labor, Biden and McCarthy's unsurprisingly unproductive debt ceiling meeting, the GOP's ousting of Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee, the College Board removing myriad Black authors from their AP AfAm syllabus, protests in France and the UK, and the US upping their military presence in the Philippines as they wrap up tensions with China, before diving into the incoming House Budget Chair's concerning statements on the GOP's targets for debt ceiling cuts. Professor Laura Katz Olson then joins as she dives right into the deregulation of the 1970s and '80s which saw a huge influx of money into the junk bond industry, and opened up the economy to much broader investments into private equity and venture capitalism, beginning a period of corporate raiding and butchering by these firms, taking prospering companies, chopping costs to pay off debt, and then selling them off as a shell of their former selves. Professor Katz Olson then walks Emma through the contrast between the perspective we were sold on private equity by the neoliberal pioneers, that they come in and save struggling companies, with their actual practice of relying on the income of prosperous companies to pay off the debt of their own acquisition, before expanding on private equity's recent entrance into the world of medical care, seeing the vast income in the healthcare industry as the perfect tool to rake up profits from the working class, in a comparable manner to their takeover of the Dental industry in the 1990s. Stepping back, Laura Katz Olson parses through the playbook of private equity and their reliance on Non-Disclosure Agreements and Non-Disparagement clauses to keep their destructive practices under wraps, as their cost-cutting practices inevitably break down the capacity of the company to function by piling more and more responsibility on workers. Wrapping up, Profesor Katz Olson discusses the specific impact this process has on medical care, which works along the lines of life and death, and how venture capitalists are stepping into Medicare and Medicaid-funded care to rip dollars from our taxes. Emma concludes the free half by reflecting on Ilhan Omar's response to being ousted from the Foreign Affairs Committee, her role as one of the few Representatives willing to question corporations, and what this loss means moving forwards. And in the Fun Half: Emma is joined by Brandon Sutton and Matt Binder as they assess the absurd discourse about whether non-consensual porn of someone is okay, the beginnings of the multi-millionaire class truly separating themselves from humanity, and Casey from Tennessee dives into Memphis' history of police abuses against its Black population. Denis Prager has a moral panic about the left starting moral panics about the right's moral panics about… before the MR Crew also touches on DeSantis' attempt to undermine Florida's big liberal arts college, AJ from Chicago discusses Crowder's sexual revelations, and Marjorie Taylor Greene demands to get to the root of why elementary schools individually received billions in COVID money for “diversity.” Mark the Barb from Buffalo discusses his escape from Jordan Peterson's ideology, plus, your calls and IMs!
