We take a deep dive into the question, "is letting kids go to the bathroom of their choice a god idea?". We shift gears with the mandate that was recently passed by Greg Abbot and does it really benefit us a state to do this.

Lawmakers approved new political maps and decided how to spend COVID-19 relief money. But they didn't pass bills about vaccine mandates or the criminal penalty for illegal voting.

With the Facebook "Whistleblower" report, the authoritarian left is using a statement we can all agree with ("Teenage bullying is wrong!") to justify unaccountable government oversight and censorship of big tech. National Review's Andy McCarthy joins us to explain how some Republicans are falling into the Democrats' censorship trap, why the left and right truly do not see eye to eye on this issue, and modifications we could make to Section 230 to stop big tech's censorship of conservatives without destroying our 1st Amendment rights. We also looked at the legal implications of Governor Abbott's prohibition on vaccine mandates and Attorney General Merrick Garland's investigation of parents as "domestic terrorists" for protesting their school boards' mask mandates. Andy McCarthy is a senior fellow at National Review Institute, an NR contributing editor, and author of Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency. He served as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Follow him in Twitter at @AndrewCMcCarthy.

We end with a cancel culture debate about the racist remarks and resignation of a Raiders coach. It's a Friday. It's a TEET day. It's time to tune in!

Confusion in Texas over vaccine mandates. Gov. Greg Abbot just banned vaccine mandates for all entities in the state including private businesses. This could pose a problem for many companies that contract with the federal government since Biden has mandated that they do get vaccinated. Now, some companies are caught in the middle and could lose federal funding or run afoul of the state law. Mitchell Ferman, economy reporter at the Texas Tribune, joins us for more. Next, the employment recovery in the country is still a bumpy and uneven one. There are still more jobs than there are unemployed people and the pace of new hires was weak for last month. More women have dropped out of the labor force due to messy back to school rollouts and child care issues and lower-wage workers are waiting for new opportunities instead of going back to old jobs. Eli Rosenberg, labor reporter at the Washington Post, joins us for what we are seeing in unemployment numbers. Finally, while the majority of migrants coming to the border are very poor and take long perilous trips, some of the more affluent migrants and taking different routes. In some cases middle-class migrants from Brazil and Venezuela are taking flights to Mexico and then making the last leg of the trip by cab or bus. Alicia Caldwell, immigration reporter at the WSJ, joins us for some are flying to the border. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

A federal judge is challenging the Left's “guilty until proven guilty” treatment of Americans detained after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. But will the facts ever be allowed to come out? BlazeTV host and Texas gubernatorial candidate Chad Prather gives his take on Gov. Greg Abbott's vaccine mandate ban. WH press secretary Jen Psaki said the quiet part out loud and admitted President Biden wants to “fundamentally change” our economy. Leaked Border Patrol documents reveal just how many illegal immigrants the Biden administration has released into the country amid rumors of “the mother of all caravans.” Dr. Fauci is now admitting that COVID-19 may never go away … so are we also in for a “forever pandemic?” A kid has a message for President … Brandon.

William Shatner rode Blue Origin's great penis of the galaxy a few feet up into the final frontier, becoming America's favorite space geezer. Terry McAuliffe, a popular Democratic candidate in a blue state, might win, might not, depending on the enthusiasms of the people voting. Unfortunately, half of those voters are in a frothing rage-panic, every waking moment, which sure beats being informed. Oh no! Does this mean Democrats will lose everything from now on? Well, settle back and just sit tight, while Greg Dworkin starts reviewing the attitude of doing right — You've got to accentuate the universal, triangulate the ideological, eschew the label “liberal”, because winners are always “mister in-between”… maybe. Republicans help all they can by being simply horrible. Q-nuts and violent lunatics are everywhere, which must eventually hurt their chances, right? The Dallas Regional Chamber distanced itself from Greg Abbott on his anti vaccine mandate mandate, so maybe that's a start… Nah. They're taking us to Hell. If Joe Biden can only bring back holiday shopping, perhaps the Democratic party will survive. Letting us see Steve Bannon get tased on TV might help too. Democrats do still have a few dummies, although a couple fewer now with the firing of Fulton County election workers guilty of shredding voter registration forms. Republican election workers can get fired for less… a lot less. A pro-Trump PAC made millions illegally, spent a few thousand in fines years later. They probably made more in interest. Jon Gruden was fired for a victimless crime, with the exception of LGBTQI+ communities, Blacks, women and a few others. At least Gruden was entertaining to a few bigots. Another woke-victim being canceled for no reason: Brett Favre. We are almost at 80% vaccinated now. Any way you look at it, that is good news. A record number of people have taken their job and shoved it, because there are better jobs out there than the one they have.

The Boys are monitoring the vaccine mandates, as a pilot rebuffed President Joe Biden's mandate amid the Southwest Airlines turmoil. A Virginia school district covered up a sexual assault in the name of wokeness, and the children in Vice President Kamala Harris' cringeworthy video were paid actors. Climate protesters descended on the White House, while singing songs and vandalizing an Andrew Jackson statue. Texas Governor Greg Abbott completely banned vaccine mandates by employers, as Netflix stands with Dave Chappelle and won't remove his new special. It is a mystery as to why the California Governor's daughter has not been vaccinated, and the results of Alexandria, Virginia defunding their police department.
Americans' trust of the media is absolutely in the gutter https://notthebee.com/article/americans-trust-of-the-media-is-completely-in-the-gutter-and-boy-you-just-hate-to-see-it And the Bee notes about the Gallup research: “when political differences are accounted for, the results diverge sharply along party lines: Just 11% of Republicans trust the media, while 68% of Democrats do. But even the Democratic numbers have declined notably in recent years, as have those of Independents.” I can't help but to insert Club plug here. This is sort of self serving, but I cannot think of a better way to fight mainstream media, than by first joining a solid bible believing church, and secondly joining our club. Our goal here, and I hope we are doing a pretty good job of this, is to proclaim the Lordship of Christ over politics, produce quality news and commentary that you can trust, and build a network that surpass unprincipled legacy media like Fox News.

Greg Abbott on Monday issued an executive order banning all state entities, including private employers, from enforcing vaccine mandates, the latest escalation in the Republican's resistance to public health measures during the Covid-19 pandemic. The order states that "no entity in Texas" can enforce vaccination against anyone in the state who objects "for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19," according to a news release from the governor's office. "The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced," Abbott said in a statement. Abbott also called on the Texas state Legislature to pass a law with the same effect. The executive order would be rescinded upon the passage of such legislation, the governor's office said. Southwest, American among Texas businesses defying Abbott to comply with federal vaccine mandate https://www.statesman.com/story/business/2021/10/12/southwest-american-plan-ignore-abbott-comply-vaccine-mandate/8423456002/ Now according to the Satesman, there is a battle of the gods, and it looks like the federal god won: “Two of the national's largest airlines — Southwest Airlines and American Airlines — both based in Texas, said Tuesday they plan to follow looming federal guidelines and require that their employees are vaccinated against COVID-19, despite an order from Gov. Greg Abbott that attempts to block such mandates. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines last week ordered all of its estimated 55,000 employees to be vaccinated against COVID 19 by Dec. 8. That folowed a directive from President Joe Biden, who in September said all private companies with more than 100 workers must require employees to be vaccinated or conduct weekly tests for the coronavirus. Southwest said in a written statement Tuesday that the president's executive order “supersedes any state mandate or law,” saying the company is required to adhere to it despite Abbott's action “to remain compliant as a federal contractor.”” But listen to this. In the same article: “Amber Gunst, CEO of the Austin Technology Council, said most companies in Texas are unlikely to follow the governor's mandate. Employers don't have the option to defy OSHA standards, both for legal reasons and for insurance-related concerns, she said. "When the federal government comes in with OSHA and they say, 'this is what we need to do in order to keep employees safe,' companies have to follow those rules in order to be in compliance with OSHA, so I don't really feel that most companies are going to look at the mandate that the governor created and want to adhere to that," Gunst said. "Companies don't have an option to choose to not be in compliance with OSHA. They will have a very strict, and steep price to pay if they're not in compliance with OSHA." Gunst said she thinks most companies will see Abbott's order "as a nuisance that the governor has created." The question is a nuisance to who? Who is being the nuisance? Who is forcing people to vax? The Wallstree Journal captures this gem: https://www.wsj.com/articles/covid-19-vaccine-mandate-fight-between-texas-and-biden-has-companies-caught-in-the-middle-11634073605 “The Greater Houston Partnership, which represents some 900 companies including Exxon Mobil Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Chevron Corp. and Accenture PLC, said Tuesday that Mr. Abbott's order would make it more difficult for Texas businesses to operate safely.

We be tripp'n. Joe Biden's Vaccine Mandate Doesn't Exist. It's Just A Press Release https://thefederalist.com/2021/10/07/joe-bidens-vaccine-mandate-doesnt-exist-its-just-a-press-release/?s=04#.YV9Ab7sLmEY.twitter According to Joy Pullmann over at The Federalist: “Yes, we've heard all about Joe Biden's alleged vaccine mandate for private companies employing 100 or more people. It was all over the news even before he announced it on September 9. His announcement has jeopardized the employment of millions of Americans and increased worker shortages in critical domains such as health care. There's only one problem. It's all a mirage. Biden's so-called vaccine mandate doesn't exist — at least, not yet. So far, all we have is his press conference and other such made-for-media huff-puffing. No such rule even claiming to be legally binding has been issued yet. That's why nearly two dozen Republican attorneys general who have publicly voiced their opposition to the clearly unconstitutional and illegal mandate haven't yet filed suit against it, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General confirmed for me. There is no mandate to haul into court. And that may be part of the plan. According to several sources, so far it appears no such mandate has been sent to the White House's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs yet for approval. The White House, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Department of Labor haven't released any official guidance for the alleged mandate. There is no executive order. There's nothing but press statements. Despite what you may have been falsely led to believe by the media fantasy projection machine, press statements have exactly zero legal authority. To impose the public perception of a mandate, the Biden administration is following an unusual rule-making process it also employed earlier this year, called an emergency temporary standard (ETS). The spring ETS rule took nearly six months to issue. Meanwhile, companies are telling reporters their vaccine mandates will have at the latest December deadlines. (For those who can't calendar, that's four months after Biden's non-existent mandate was proclaimed. According to OSHA, an ETS takes up to six months to go into effect after the initial mandate is issued in the Federal Register — which, again, for the proclaimed 100-employee mandate hasn't happened yet.) Lawyers for big business were blunt about their love for this mandate mirage: “Everybody loves this cover,” Minneapolis employment lawyer Kate Bischoff told Bloomberg Law in September. “Many were already looking down the road at doing this, but the fact that they get to blame Biden is like manna from heaven.” Using the ETS procedure instead of normal federal rule-making processes both allows the Biden administration to push its demands faster and without any public input or requirement of responding to public input, which is normally required of even legally laughable federal rule-making like this one would be. That is part of why ETS rules have been overwhelmingly overturned in courts. Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal published a letter from Bruce Atkinson making several excellent observations about the nonexistent mandate, including the following:” “The mandate's nonexistence shields the Biden administration from legal challenges that may ultimately restrict the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's authority. Yet the mandate is still effective at compelling industries and companies into compliance, as it leaves room for any eventual issuance to target noncompliant entities. This implied cudgel is particularly effective on industries and companies that are dependent on federal spending or the goodwill of federal regulators. The nonexistent mandate also allows so-inclined state and local governments and companies to issue their own mandates, seemingly in lockstep with Washington. The Biden White House has been well-served by presenting a nonexistent mandate as a done deal.” Guitar AD Have you always wanted to play guitar but didn't know where to start?

A record 4.3 million workers quit their jobs in August, led by food and retail industries https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/12/a-record-4point3-million-workers-quit-their-jobs-in-august-led-by-food-and-retail-industries.html According to CNBC: “Workers left their jobs at a record pace in August, with bar and restaurant employees as well as retail staff quitting in droves, the Labor Department reported Tuesday. Quits hit a new series high going back to December 2000, as 4.3 million workers left their jobs. The quits rate rose to 2.9%, an increase of 242,000 from the previous month, which saw a rate of 2.7%, according to the department's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey. The rate, which is measured against total employment, is the highest in a data series that goes back to December 2000. Quits have been seen historically as a level of confidence from workers who feel they are secure in finding employment elsewhere, though labor dynamics have changed during Covid-19 crisis. Workers have left their jobs because of health concerns and child care issues unique to the pandemic's circumstances. A total of 892,000 workers in the food service and accommodation industries left their jobs, while 721,000 retail workers departed along with 534,000 in health care and social assistance. “As job openings and hires fell in August, the quits rate hit a new series high, surging along with the rise in Covid cases and likely growing concerns about working in the continuing pandemic,” said Elise Gould, senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute.” Now two questions for me arise out of this information. Why are these people quitting, and where are they going? I could not dig up the answer for where these quitters went, and the best answer I could dig up for why they are quitting coming from the Business, Insider where they speculate: https://www.businessinsider.com/over-4-million-workers-quit-record-labor-shortage-great-resignation-2021-10 “Workers are likely quitting over work conditions, pay, the virus, or contemplation of their lives.” Bottom line is the government has created a catawampus economy, and screws up all the incentives, this makes it hard to understand what is really going on here. Pelosi signals big spending package will shrink to $2 trillion https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/pelosi-signals-2-trillion-spending-bill Facing intractable opposition from party centrists, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats will have to “make tighter decisions” on a massive social welfare spending package that is stalled in Congress. Pelosi, a California Democrat, acknowledged in a press conference Tuesday that the $3.5 trillion package planned by Democrats will have to shrink to about $2 trillion, telling reporters, “The fact is there are fewer dollars to spend, there are choices to be made, and the members have said let's get the results we need, but we will not diminish the transformative nature of what it is.” Pelosi, in a memo to Democrats late Monday, told them caucus members are calling for a spending package that will “do fewer things well so that we can still have a transformative impact on families in the workplace and responsibly address the climate crisis.” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, set an Oct. 31 deadline to advance the package. Tight race in Virginia gubernatorial showdown with three weeks until election https://www.foxnews.com/politics/virginia-gubernatorial-showdown-three-weeks-until-election Tuesday marks three weeks to go until Election Day in Virginia, and the top-of-the- ticket race remains an extremely close contest in one of just two states to hold gubernatorial elections in the year after a presidential contest. An average of the latest polls in the race indicates that former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe – who's running for his old job – holds a slight, single-digit edge over Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin in a state that President Biden won by 10 points in last year's election and where Republicans haven't won a statewide contest in a dozen years. The margin-of-error race in Virginia – a one-time key battleground but still competitive state which is seen as a key bellwether ahead of the 2022 midterm elections – has national Democrats on edge as they defend their razor-thin majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate in next year's contests. "Folks, the Virginia Governor's race is a big deal not just for the Commonwealth but for our country," Biden wrote to supporters in a fundraising email. And McAuliffe asked in a fundraising email last week, "Are we blowing this?" Virginia and New Jersey's elections for governor always grab outsized attention as they're the only states to hold such contests the year after the presidency's decided. And there's a long-running trend of voters in the commonwealth defeating the gubernatorial nominee of the party that controls the White House. McAuliffe broke with that tradition in 2013 with his election as governor. McAuliffe was unable to run for reelection in 2017 because Virginia governors are barred from serving two straight terms. And the McAuliffe campaign announced on Tuesday that the biggest name of all - former President Obama - will team up with the former governor on Oct. 23.

Supply chain issues are being felt nationwide. Many shelves are empty of common goods and both consumers and retailers are worried things will not improve before the busy holiday shopping season. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, says the problem is being driven by Washington and policies that have led to a labor shortage. Rep. Brady joins the Rundown to explain what social programs he believes are discouraging people to work, why he fears the Democrats' agenda will make matters worse and what can be done to fix the supply issues and our economy Vaccine mandates have become a central and polarizing issue for many Americans. With the COVID-19 vaccine now widely available, federal employees and the U.S. military have been required to get the coronavirus vaccine, however some states are bucking this trend. On Monday, October 11th, Governor Greg Abbott of Texas issued an executive order that would block any vaccine mandates within his state, even for private businesses. Dr. Jerome Adams, 20th U.S. Surgeon General and Director of Health Equity Initiatives at Purdue University joins to discuss the nuances of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, a recent controversy within the Southwest Airlines pilots union over the vaccine mandates, and his belief the government should not restrict how employers keep their employees healthy. Later, he shares his optimism on the return to normalcy and how soon he expects a COVID-19 vaccine for children. Plus, commentary by former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, host of the Jason in the House podcast.

We still have not quite settled the debt ceiling issue yet. New York City is giving every public school kindergartner $100 dollars in a college savings account, and California became the first state in the nation to adopt a law that will require large retail stores to provide gender-neutral toy sections. And in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order prohibiting COVID-19 vaccine mandates by any "entity," if someone objects to the vaccine for "any reason of personal conscience. " Yesterday, a Wyoming coroner issued an update in the Gabby Petito case, and today we're going to close the Morning Announcements with a brand new segment called Democracy Watch.

In a rebuke of President Joe Biden, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order prohibiting any entity, including private businesses, from imposing vaccine requirements. Will other states follow Texas' lead in fighting back against these mandates? The CEO of Southwest says the mass cancellations weren't due to any protests against vaccine mandates, instead blaming the weather and air traffic control. The CEO says he's against mandates, blaming Joe Biden's executive order, and now says no employees will be fired over the mandates. One has to wonder what made him change his mind! A record high 4.3 million Americans quit their jobs in August, leading to a lower than expected number of jobs added. Nets guard Kyrie Irving has been banned from participating in team activities until he's fully vaccinated. Irving has indicated he doesn't plan on getting the shot.

We’ve gone from lead-acid batteries in our cars to the lithium-ion batteries that power our phones and devices in a relatively short amount of time. The next generation of batteries will need to be big enough to power homes, cities and our electrical grid because experts believe that’ll be key to our transition away from fossil fuels. “Batteries have really been called the glue of the clean-energy economy because … the wind doesn’t always blow, the sun doesn’t always shine … and so we need to have not only enough storage for the few minutes or the few hours between uses, but we need to be able to provide that super-high-reliability storage for hours, days, weeks and seasons,” said Dan Kammen, an energy professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and adviser for innovative energy solutions at the U.S. Agency for International Development. Our current go-to battery technology is lithium ion. But there are so many other technologies coming online that will become the core of our clean energy economy. On today’s show: one of the most hopeful climate-related deep dives we’ve had in a while.

In our news wrap Tuesday, the White House rebuked Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott over banning COVID-19 vaccine requirements. Meanwhile, the state of Florida fined Leon County $3.5 million for requiring its employees to get vaccinated. In Britain, a report by parliament charged that a delay in imposing a COVID lockdown caused thousands of unnecessary deaths. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders
Highlights: “The amazing free state of Texas does it again. Just hours ago, Gov. Greg Abbott signed an executive order banning any and all private businesses from issuing vaccine mandates on their employees or their customers.” “Gov. Abbott noted that it was necessary not just given the federal government's overreach with Biden's edict, but also in terms of the ways such an edict could disrupt hospitals and law enforcement agencies. Because, as you know, so many health care staff, law enforcement officers, other essential workers, they've been resigning in mass throughout the nation in protest against this vaccine mandates.” “Right now as we speak, there are 20 states that prohibit vax mandates or proof of vaccination on their citizens.”“What we're seeing here is in many respects, is a very real kind of informal secession happening as we speak.”“Red states are increasingly governing with a complete political disregard to the sentiments of the left in a manner comparable to the way Biden's vax mandates completely disregard the sentiments of Patriots on the right.” Timestamps:[01:40] Governor Gregg Abbott's executive order prohibiting vax mandates[04:06] On the wider trend of sanctuary states rising up against the Bumblin' Biden regime[05:06] How leftists at Salon are seeing it as an informal form of secession [06:55] How the far-left is panicking over the realization that red states are rising and taking the nation backResources:Ep. 633 The World Is EXPLODING Over Vax Mandates!!!Sign up for the FREE webinar on October 14th here!

The 45th president may have been ripe material for (dark) comedy, but Samantha Bee sure does not miss him. After covering Donald Trump for six seasons on her late night show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” she says, “Comedy is better without him. Just the world in general, — the globe — is better without him.” She now has airtime to double down her coverage of other challenges like climate change and the affront to voting and abortion rights.In this conversation, Kara Swisher asks Bee about her role as a “funny advocate.” They also discuss the challenges of pandemic socializing, the future of entertainment and Bee's hopes that Vladimir Putin “ride a bear into the woods.” And she gives her two cents, as a New Yorker, on the Texas gubernatorial race: “I would vote for a pizza stained paper plate over Greg Abbott.”This episode contains strong language.You can find transcripts (posted midday) and more information for all episodes at nytimes.com/sway, and you can find Kara on Twitter @karaswisher.
