going halls of the national archives museum and declared the following. way the twisted web of lies in our school classroom. and teach our children the magnificent is about our country. we want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation. in the history of the world. the most exceptional nation in the history of the world he says greeks mayans chinese in can roam and gyptian all child's play compared to the dynamism the last 250 years the united states of america. but according to donald trump and many others that exceptionalism. is under attack and black lives matter in and deep are destroying our streets and our statues because the true patriotic history of the united states is no longer being taught in schools oh my goodness what will we
7:31 am
do that is the reason that all hell is broken loose in 2020 yes instead of patriotism and being taught in our schools about it has been replaced by cancel culture critical race theory and the new york times 1619 project and the dreaded teachers of howard zinn and his dreaded people's history of the united states but fear not because the great leader has a solution a pull proof answer to the great empty void of patriotism currently in us schools. the only path to national. identity as americans that is why it is so urgent that we finally. patriotic education to our school. under our leadership the national endowment for the humanities has awarded a grant to support the development of a pro american curriculum. yaz center the 1776
7:32 am
commission a presidential. a mission to promote a patriotic education brought to you by. tick tock. yes tick tock i mean seriously after giving his blessings to the purchase of tik tok by oracle the intelligence or reports the president from demanded that the companies involved in the venture must pay the u.s. government 5000000000 dollars to fund his new as they say or at the authoritarian light national commission to support patriotic education. as orwell's the most effective way to destroy people is to deny in the blitter rate their own understanding of their history and that my friends is why we must always study the past and continue watching. what's going on in a city street you want to. see this as this you always
7:33 am
stay i'll see a. great city this least systemic deception is late show which. brings up the real. world that we're going to watching the hawks i am tyrrel the time of it and joining us today to discuss the $776.00 commission president and trump president drums calls for pro america pro patriotism curriculum in public schools as author and professor of media studies at georgetown university the one and only chris chambers chris thank you for coming on today. thank you so chris 1st as a as a university professor a teacher but also a father whose own child graduated from high school just a few years ago do you find a staggering lack of patriotism an anti-american sentiment in our education system today was it in your son's history school books. well and through well what's being
7:34 am
taught now is 70 and 76. a lot of. in. a lot of states and then a lot of old kind of troops. even in the most i would say conservative history department in the biggest state universities don't even follow anymore this is from the college level. down to primary and secondary so i mean we're teaching. like all men and it's not helping and a lot of kids who are going to college and are not getting indoctrinated by while here are the. bernie sanders professors they're getting educated by the older white male professors who were giving them what they should have been
7:35 am
in the 1st place. and you know studied you know. born out. of the disease of what different people different trends. wars. economic. policies lack of economic policy so i don't you know this is just the. culture war red meat reaction and also a way of draining money that do. i think that are absolutely correct in that i know that when i was in college i learned that rosa parks didn't you know not give up her seat because she was tired in her case it's well that's where i told me and i was truly shocked and upset but i have a question for you enjoy anglo and famous critique of u.s. public school history books live my teacher told me he could take the 12 most used american history textbooks famously wrote that they are an embarrassing blend of bland optimism blind nationalism and plain misinformation hwang and an average of
7:36 am
$800.00. 88 pages and almost 5 pounds professor chambers what do you feel are the biggest problems with how u.s. history is taught today. will again it's there or you know our model or with whom it is. wonderful. goal but also hold people back in a way because sometimes we try to jam tomorrow. to make everybody happy rather than trying to far it's a new universe go. truth universal that's when they did universal because the 1st no that. if we try to find out if we don't even that stuff we dig that stuff up with me but with it it will be inclusive of the interview thought. if factual is
7:37 am
a reality notion of what this country is about and how it started and where it's going we can't just sit back and say oh we're going to try to satisfy everybody here. that's the wrong way to do it the right way to do it if the dig up everything no matter how ugly piece it together put it together so people can look at it and then you will see everybody's story all right now we're not you know we're either trying to have 11 voice or it's talent voices before we even dig into the details that's a great point to bring up and i have to ask you know why is being honest about our nation's past and present sins just as important as honoring the nation's accomplishments and that's when we need to have both the good the bad why is that. well i mean it would have been better any of you know different parties have a different narrative different political leaders have a different narrative you know best what's going on here this has nothing to do
7:38 am
with good you know the 16 maintaining. or time. really didn't start out of the curriculum it never really went off that way until. you know this is. going to american culture but it's really about. the. struggle in the. i don't understand why that's a. you know. it. is. coming through that direction now what you do with that reality what you do with the fact how you you know we need then to a narrative that follows that but you know i mean that's the stuff on the right there. it's really sad at the end of it because i think we're getting lost in all
7:39 am
this is exactly what you said it's like children and people growing up still need that base level of business history of as we know what happened right now based on the evidence that we've accumulated based on the testimonies from the time based on all that business was your history of you can whitewash it in one sense and make it all golly gee great patriot and exceptional and at the same time you all you know you have to show the reality of that and it's i think it's dangerous when we get into that world where we're ignoring one over the other. there is. a good. barrier for the. truth. and the trials and all. that is wonderful what we're seeing right there may be the wrong law. oranges during the. war and you know i didn't understand why. the.
7:40 am
situation. there. well you know there are. my parents who are. all. worried they will. all be there and all. the new wired wants already what happened to the reconstruction of their words and they were are either their friends were all. in south carolina we 3 were all we were right while a lot of it was no longer there was the we were. there you know i was there if she didn't know what. you that you're looking for you right there it truly is i mean look at the end of the day you cannot mandate pages and the government should never mandate pagers and the government has to earn patriotism chris thank you so much for coming on a magic 8 in our audience today and keep up the great work out there. thank you.

previously we covered the police shooting of lyndon cameron a 13 year old unarmed white autistic child just outside his home in salt lake city utah while this week the body can put it at the salt lake salt lake city police officers involved in the shooting have been released and the answers they provide just creates even more questions r.t. america's natasha sweet has the story and a warning the video you're about to see may be to start. a 13 year old autistic teen is fighting for his life as salt lake city is now working to improve its police force according to the mother at all started after her son desperately needed help for his mental state of mind i mean he's actually automatically yes thank you lori a barton says she called police to assist her with getting her 13 year old son limped into the hospital as he suffers from mental illness.

the showdown for the u.s. supreme court vacancy left by justice ruth bader ginsburg is once that for the record books democrats last lifeline to stall the vote is over there's no hope left for 4 republican senators to shut down a call for the vote senators grassley romney and gardner all support trump and leader mcconnell's urgency in selecting a supreme court justice in advance of the 2020 presidential election even though the options look stark for democrats in protecting ginsburg's legacy but also bad of obamacare gay marriage l g b t rights roe v wade and women's reproductive rights there might still be time for a last minute hail mary if truck pushes through justice but loses the presidential
7:48 am
election democrats would be in a prime position to go nuclear and with tight senate races and democrats poised to pick up seats there are a couple possibilities to salvage the supreme court democrats are having talks of expanding the court by adding more seats which is perfectly constitutional democrats could also push for statehood for puerto rico and washington d.c. providing for more democratic representation in congress and lastly they could add a rule change that would in the filibuster but all of these options are contingent on the result of the 2020 alexion in november democrats don't only need the presidency they need the senate as well both president trump and joe biden are very aware of this trump is using the supreme court nomination clock to his advantage he's ramping up a base bloodthirsty to in women's right to choose he's speaking directly to the religious right appealing to racists and by fervently against civil rights and
7:49 am
using fear tactics to drive up turnout. providing he's laying traps lives bare from cope 19 to the economic recovery biden is also working to mitigate what looks like a crisis mode for democrats with a shift in the supreme court threaten everything he's running on the stakes they couldn't be higher for the supreme court the future of america and the republic for which it stands here to break it all down for us as legal analyst molly barrett's welcome ali. hi. well molly it's a sad day depending on who you ask in america today marked the end of hopes for democrats of getting just for republicans to shoot down a vote on the next supreme court justice many democrats specifically assume that mitt romney will be the dissenting voice and he wasn't what does this mean in the grand scheme. of the grand scheme i think at all that ensures that whoever is going to get confirmed and it's going to happen quickly given every indication they don't want to wait on this to happen and they want to get it you know done as quickly as
7:50 am
possible and know what's going to be interesting though is that it snows for one they can get things accomplished when they really want to you know it's certainly a stark contrast to the and then president obama tried to nominate our london they're like oh no wait it's 9 months before an election year we can't have him in there. the next president to you know no such qualms this time around that's for sure these republicans but that republicans you know used to move on at the end of the election and i think that's going to draw some are what you're seeing now some democrats are you reading shows that you get it done when they want to get a budget brought up a great point there it's amazing that congress has the ability especially the sun up to do things because normally they just kind of don't especially under mcconnell are just it just doesn't really do much trump has options here are arguably the most options so you can choose to call the senate vote within the next few days which it probably is what he'll do is going to do very friday or saturday or he could do this during the lame duck session what are your thoughts on not only the
7:51 am
timing of all. you know kind of hollow ballou over the scotus nominee and how will the potential tilt the court and essentially affect standing laws like roe v wade or that we've seen them rule on like regarding obamacare or things like that like how will his nomination affect the court. it's it's huge in so many ways i mean especially the fact that you know. did not want this by all accounts you know they're trying to say that her family was wrong when they said she didn't pick the nominee so you know you've got that you've got the fact that she was that republicans about what they did in 2000 it's being compared to what they're doing now that's galvanizing voters and it depends on who trump picked i think that the overall goal it would indicate is that they're trying to move as quickly as possible i would think there's probably a lot of market research being done right now by both democrat and republican leaders basically determining what's going to galvanize voters the most do they want to pick a nominee that will roll republican voters so much they're just going to turn out waves in the polls if they aren't already in the same for democrats they want to
7:52 am
pick one that i going to be so polarizing to democrats that they're going to be like heck no we're just going to organize and we'll vote we're going to stop to this or do you get your nominee and we're going to do everything we can to change the makeup and add more seats in this that the other so i think that there's. you know a lot for them to consider and that's certainly what it talks to talk about with roe v wade you know some of the nominees that president trump has put out there not the top 10 years but you've got like cruised in tom cotton and maybe you know trucks that doesn't fix teen if he got a chance he was going to pick judges that were pro-life as you well and certainly cruz and tom cotton and said that they would overturn roe v wade in a heartbeat so that's galvanizing voters already in it in another it's much it's now and i think that if republicans are smart which it seems like they're trying to go this path of just getting it done with as little parts really as possible with it's already so controversial they've got to pick a nominee and it's going to be one middle of the road i would think to try to fix
7:53 am
the money that's going to have perhaps create a lot of controversy and slow down the nominating process and molly do you believe there is a valid argument to be made for going nuclear we talked about this a little bit but democrats have the option of expanding the size of the supreme court or adding puerto rico and d.c. to increase their leverage in congress do you think that that is something they're . actually really interested in doing and also these arguments have come across every few years i think that right now we're watching them kind of take up just because of what's being faced by the supreme court but to areas like the fam puerto rico that have been trying to get representation for decades now do you actually think that we're going to be closer to that. you know that's a great question and i'm not entirely sure about puerto rico and d.c. if that would actually push their agenda forward because this is their only opportunity if they've got lobbyist in high places they need to be working those things right now but you know certainly when it comes to that there's no question that there's democratic outrage and they've got to use whatever leverage they've got to try to you know push it towards their agenda but i miss already dead in
7:54 am
previous you know times that he is not going to back the court that he doesn't want to tip for tat that you know if he does add more judges posing he does win the presidency his focus is going to be on stopping donald trump's nomination and if he doesn't land and certainly democrats have that option try to you know add more seats and. add more states in order to swing it but you know biden our president can't if the democratic side has basically said i don't want to support that because i feel like if we move that direction it's just going to create this animosity in the next time the republicans have the white house they're going to back to their favor as well that it will just keep going on and on forever but i think that there's a lot of breast that is in democratic leaders who feel like adding those making those to you know state also adding you know stacking working a lot of hearts the is a way to retaliate and show that we do have some power because i think there's this big feeling that this is just the big this play of the republicans flexing their muscle it's just a big power play that they're in control and they're in charge and i think that's
7:55 am
what's frustrating no matter who they pick no matter what nominee it's going to be frustrating to people who are looking for a balanced approach that hey you guys can get it done when you want to but you're not getting it done unless that it's your agenda and that agenda doesn't seem to be the american people it seems to be staying an hour and does that. the american people and that's what i worry about with voters are not really educated enough or critical thinking enough to realize the complexities of what this vision could mean and just the you know you talk about bright lines but you've got immigration where you're separating families are you sorry i just know i know but you greg only are like when they're in the womb or you pro-life when they're at the border. you bring up so many great points and so much more to get into and i wish that america wasn't purposely dumbed down the way it is by our leaders to where they could ask those great questions and be educated by those things that you brought up and say we want there's some justice thank you so much once again legal analyst molly barr as always a pleasure having you on. oh thank you. already voted out of our show for you today
