Why did it take so long for the Nashville shooter’s “tranifesto” to come out? And more importantly, what is still being hidden? Darren Beattie of Revolver News joins to discuss a story the regime badly wants to be forgotten — but which can’t be ignored for that exact reason.

This is Andrew Colvet filling in for Charlie Kirk, who is on assignment at UCLA today.

Say a prayer for him. I'm actually going to be heading there right now, so whenever you're listening to this, hopefully you don't have any more news than that. It's going to be an eventful one. On this hour of the show, we recap my perspective on what happened in the debates. Vivek, doing what he did on one of the largest stages you can, the GOP primary debate, was so instrumental.

Then I bring in Darren Beatty. We talk about the Tranfesto out of Nashville. Why was it being covered up?

Sometimes the most obvious explanation really is the right answer. Also, we have a disturbing report about your flight safety. You're not going to want to miss that. Buckle up, here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country.

He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here.

Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at Charlie covered the debate and really focusing on this idea of the rebellion is growing, all right? And a lot of you, we get emails like this all the time.

I was checking the inbox as well. A lot of you are asking, what about that moment where Vivek sort of attacked Nikki Haley and her daughter for using TikTok because he's come under some criticism for also using TikTok. I want to be really clear here. Vivek using TikTok is just good quality. Now, I hate TikTok. I think most of you in this audience hate TikTok, but to act like it's not full of Gen Zers is ridiculous and we need to win Gen Z.

Now, the latest polls out of CNN and TimeSiena show that young people are barely breaking for Biden and actually CNN has voters 35 and under one point in favor of Trump. Now, this is a huge, huge tectonic shift that's happening, but TikTok is still garbage. We should abandon it.

I think Trump, from what I'm hearing from inside chatter, is actually going to make good on that promise if given a second shot or he'll sell it. I think we should just ban it, get rid of it all together. But realize this, folks, 50% of Gen Z uses TikTok as their search engine. It's not just a social media platform for them anymore. It's a search engine for 50% of Gen Z. They use it for everything.

It's smart to get on there. Listen, as long as it's legal, Vivek is totally fine to do that. Now, we try and do that at Turning Point USA. Our influencers get kicked off on the daily. They have to then reapply.

They have to appeal. Some have been outright banned from the platform. And we're not talking about crazy ideas.

We're talking about run of the mill, old school conservative ideas, small government, keep the government out of my business, that stuff. They get banned for that kind of stuff. So TikTok is awful. If you logged on to TikTok right now, you would basically see a bunch of bombing of Gaza and how come Israel is so awful.

That's essentially TikTok right now and why Taylor Swift is amazing. Now, you have to try as best as you can in this environment to create a counter voice. Anyways, I think a lot of you might be coming from an older school where you say, what about the gentlemanliness in politics? What about the cordiality?

What about the politeness, the polite politics? Listen, folks, we're $33.6 trillion in debt. Our border is getting invaded as we speak. We are on the verge of some serious, serious war footing in the Middle East, in Ukraine. World War III is a possibility.

Nuclear fallout is a possibility. We are trying to rebel against a Uniparty establishment that has led our nation off a cliff. We're talking about 100,000 fentanyl deaths alone in this country, that drugs just pouring over the border. I'm sorry if some of you find it offensive. I'm sorry if some of you find Vivek's tone and his approach grating. Maybe it is a little bit. Maybe to some of you, I certainly heard that last night when this was all happening, that man, maybe that was a little bit cringy. Maybe that was a little hard to watch.

I tell you this as clearly as I can. The one man on that stage that understands the the state of the country, the urgency with which we are dealing with right now is Vivek Ramaswamy. Now, I actually think that DeSantis did fine. I thought he did fine. Now, according to the New York Times columnist and the elites in the Acela corridor, Nikki Haley won last night. Drudge Report had a poll up.

Apparently Drudge readers, whoever they are now, think that Nikki Haley won. But the defining moment of last night was what Vivek did. He dropped a thermonuclear bomb on the RNC, on the establishment.

They let the fox into the henhouse. And yeah, he had some of those lines pre-scripted. I'm sure of it. I'm sure he knew exactly where he was going the second he walked onto that stage. Because I know Vivek personally, and I can tell you that if you are fed up with the RNC, if you're fed up with Ronald McDaniel, if you're fed up with the way that this game is played, he's been living it day in, day out, working his tail off on the campaign trail. And he is pissed.

He's seen inside the curtain. He's lifted the hood and he's seen just how awful it is. And so when you have people like Vivek say, Rana, your time is done. It's time for you to go. That's because he's seen it up close.

He's seen the monster eye to eye. And he said, you know what? I'm not going to play your games. I'm not going to dance on stage like some monkey. I'm going to actually call it out. And I'm going to use my time for something useful.

Now, Vivek is 38 years old. Absolutely. I get it. He may be angling for something down the road. Maybe he wants to be in the admin. Maybe the option for him in the back of his mind is that, hey, if something happens where Trump is unable to proceed, God forbid something on the health front, God forbid these legal challenges against Trump actually have teeth and they're able to get to him before election day. Maybe it drags him down.

I don't know. Maybe Vivek is looking at an option B, but he is wisely. And this is why I want to go back to something Charlie tweeted yesterday. Vivek would make a phenomenal RNC chair, in my opinion. Now, I know there's some disagreements. You know, people are still learning how to trust Vivek. But I will tell you what, if Vivek's one contribution to this is to mainstream the rebellion against the establishment, against this cronyism that has come to corrupt our party, our movement, then that will be more than worthwhile. But I think it's more than that. I think moments like last night helped open the eyes of normie, everyday casual observers of the American political system.

That's a tremendous thing. Now look at this. I want to play cut 130 for you. This just came out this morning. This is how Rana deals with, and this is so hurt, so passive aggressive.

Play 130. I know Vivek's kind of newer to the party. He voted for Obama, so he may not know that. But this is something we're going to have to get right as a party.

As a suburban woman, I get this. I know Vivek's a little newer to this, so he might not understand. No, Vivek understands all too well.

He got in there for like two minutes and he realized the whole damn thing is rigged. So don't you throw those barbs at him. Rana, I am sure you are a nice person. I've actually never met Rana. But he gets it so much more than you do.

It's infuriating. And that contribution last night was, I think it will go down in history as one of those turning points. It might be a smaller one. It might be a bigger one. History will tell. But it was that big.

It was an absolute tectonic moment. And I'm going to remember it. I'm going to remember where I was forever, for the rest of my life, when that debate happened. I'm going to remember that exactly for that moment. But I think here's the deal.

Here's the deal. Vivek has learned so much so quickly. He knows data. He knows how to run organizations. He's innovative. He's not afraid to upset the apple cart and to change the way things have always been done, especially when the way we've always been doing things only makes us lose elections. And now with Rana trying to distance herself from Virginia, from Kentucky, from saying that she didn't outright call for cutting off funding for Vivek's campaign via the RNC, we're not getting giving you a red cent.

This is how it's been done. This is this is the ecosystem that we have been living in here on the turning point side in the grassroots. America's colleges and universities today are less concerned with critical thinking than with indoctrination. It is no wonder why so many young Americans embrace cancel culture, deny free speech to conservatives and even celebrate terrorism. But I'm happy to report there is one college where students debate ideas openly and honestly, where they pursue truth together with their professors and where America's great heritage of liberty is studied and revered. My favorite college, Hillsdale College. As stated in Hillsdale's founding document in 1844, Hillsdale's original mission was to offer the kind of serious liberal arts education needed to preserve the blessings of civil and religious liberty across the land. And this mission continues to guide Hillsdale College today. You can learn more at my favorite college's website, There you will find a short video. It's just over a minute long showing how Hillsdale's work, not only on its Michigan campus, not only in Washington, D.C. campus, but across the nation as effective in defending American liberty. Take some time to watch today at

That is All right, I'm going to take issue with one thing Vivek actually said, and that's clip 131. All right.

You know, I get where he's going here, but I'm going to take issue with the play cut 131. I also want to close with one message to the Democrat Party. End this farce that Joe Biden is going to be your nominee. We know he's not even the president of the United States.

He's a puppet for the managerial class. So have the guts to step up and be honest about who you're actually going to put up so we can have an honest debate. Biden should step aside, end his candidacy now so we can see whether it's Newsom or Michelle Obama or whoever else.

Just tell us the truth so we can have an honest debate. It was it was like one bomb after the other was the whole point of the debate was just to like get through the other guys like, OK, Chris Christie, move on, move on. Tim Scott, nice guy. Come on, move on.

And it's every line was was just just on fire. Anyways, the point I'm going to make here is that we do not want Joe Biden to just move on. We want Joe Biden. What people need to understand about Joe Biden, he is one of the most stubborn political figures ever. The guy has ran for president.

What, like, like fact check me on this, like three times, three times he had to bow out because of a plagiarism scandal because he was ripping people off. And then he just couldn't gain track. He could barely gain traction in this election until South Carolina, until they consolidated around it because they probably did some focus group testing in the old nice white uncle was going to unite all the different tribes within the Democratic Party. I'm telling you, we want Joe Biden to run. We want Joe Biden to run. The guy doesn't run, for one.

So listen, if if we push him out, that's actually a bad strategy. Like we should I mean, we can have a little bit of joy at his expense, at his mumbling through speeches, at his falling. You know, I don't want anybody to get hurt, but the man has fallen. I mean, there's montages of him falling off his bike, falling down the stairs, falling on stage.

It's it's really bad. So, yeah, he ran for office three total times. First one was in 1988 for the presidency. Meanwhile, he's been a D.C. establishment stalwart for decades. But Joe Biden is so beatable, so beatable. And here's here's the truth. We don't want Newsome. Newsome is basically the devil incarnate.

I mean, it's true. The guy speaks out of both ends of his mouth. He's got a silver tongue.

You can literally see his little snake serpentine tongue protruding as he speaks. But he's slick. And for those who are not paying attention, low information, low prop voters. Remember, the whole race comes down to low prop voters. And this is why the RNC chase the voters. The strategy is so dumb.

It's a one to one. So you're getting people that would vote on Election Day. You're just getting them to put the ballot in the box earlier, which then raises other questions about chain of custody, signature verifications, all of these things. We need low prop voters. And guess who's going to be fooled? Guess who's going to be fooled by Gavin Newsom? Low propensity voters.

He's a much, much more formidable candidate. Michelle Obama, I'm hearing she doesn't want to do it. Can't blame her. She's got a nice cushy life. And Martha's Vineyard, she's having a nice go of it. She's got her big Netflix contracts and her and her husband just get to run around, pick up the phone, say, hey, pass this bill, put the phone back down.

They get to move on with their life. But Gavin Newsom, whoa, does he want it. He wants it bad.

And he would be a disaster for this country, an absolute disaster. There is a clip, and I'm going to find it one of these days. It's very hard to find, actually. I looked for it once, but I've seen it before, of him getting cornered by Adam Carolla. Adam Carolla is actually, his studio is not far from where I'm at currently. Gavin Newsom still thought of him as the mainstream TV guy, came on a show doing a press tour for whatever. And Adam Carolla cornered him, I mean, dead to rights, had him dead to rights. And somehow you watch him wiggle out of it, wiggle out of it. And Adam Carolla ended up going on with, I believe, Dave Rubin and explained this very story.

And it's an amazing story because years later, sitting there going like, I don't know how this guy wiggled out of this one. And you've seen him on with Sean Hannity. Now I think Sean Hannity, say what you will, he was overmatched. He was overmatched by Gavin Newsom, the couple of times he's had him on. It's going to be very interesting to see the DeSantis-Gavin Newsom debate, actually.

I mean, it's sort of a sideshow at this point, but it's very interesting. because the state is inviting women and girls to come to California for the sole purpose of aborting their baby. This is abortion trafficking. Take a stand for life by providing an ultrasound for a young woman.

When you do, she is twice as likely to choose life. I'm a donor and you should be two to preborn. Just $28 provides that ultrasound and saves one baby.

$140 saves five. A gift of $15,000 provides an ultrasound machine that can save thousands of babies for years to come. Call 833-850-2229 or click on the preborn banner at

That is and click on the preborn banner. All right, so I'm going to bring in Darren Beattie now from Darren, you've got a really interesting piece here and you get two pieces we're going to cover, actually. But this first one is about the Nashville diversity-obsessed black police chief hid the trans shooter's anti-white manifesto. Now, Darren, people were speculating for months why we haven't seen the manifesto. Had the shoe been on the other foot, if this was a MAGA guy going in and killing like a bunch of, you know, somebody that would fit their narrative, we would have had the FBI leaking the manifesto to the New York Times on day one within like hours. This took seven months and now you're doing some work diving into why it took seven months to get three pages of the trans shooter's manifesto.

What are the details, Darren? Absolutely, and this is an evolving and quite bizarre saga as it pertains to the leaking of some of the manifesto thanks to Steven Crowder. And my understanding, my latest understanding, is there are multiple police officers who are now on leave, if not entirely fired, on account of suspicion that they may have been responsible for the leak. And so, I think there are so many factors here. Obviously, there's a national factor and we may learn more in the coming days and weeks about the national level suppression of this story, perhaps going all the way up to Merrick Garland, who is a longtime janitor.

I've called him the deep states janitor because he's been doing mop up jobs since the 90s when actually he ran Bill Clinton's portfolio for quote unquote domestic terrorism and he hasn't stopped since being the deep states mop up man. And so there's many components about it. This latest piece from focuses on the local dynamics here and specifically the police department itself, because while there were several, it looks like there were several heroic police officers who decided, God forbid, the American people actually know the truth about this tragedy, about this transsexual woman to man transsexual, which is an unusual thing, woman to man transsexual who went on to kill so many people at this covenant school, this Christian school. There is a racial component that I think surprised a lot of people because as the manifesto is suppressed, I think the assumption was the manifesto was all about how maybe the Christian church had been suppressing homosexuals and transsexuals and people were expecting that angle, which may actually materialize as more information comes out.

But in what we've seen so far, there was this really bizarre emphasis on an anti white racial angle about killing the crackers for their quote unquote white privileges, an awkward grammatical formulation indeed, and a depraved thought, which unfortunately reflects the entirety of propaganda that people have been exposed to for many decades now. And the police chief, so getting to the crux of the story here, the police chief in Nashville is quite something. His name is John Drake. And you know, there are several jokes, but I'll spare the audience these jokes.

I'll be a good boy and not tell some jokes. But his name is John Drake, and he is the head of the Nashville Police Department. He basically catapulted in his position off of a wave of the George Floyd nonsense going on. The previous police chief had been a white guy, God forbid, who got in naughty, naughty trouble because he actually thought that the job of a police chief was to go after criminals, but apparently that was racist. So he was pounded out of the police department and the kinder, gentler, at least more anti white John Drake took up the mantle. And what's interesting about him, so his son is actually a criminal and he was the subject of a manhunt. And there have been all this controversy about his son.

And no ordinarily, you know, things happen. It's not necessarily his fault. But he's stated publicly that he says is we don't want police officers to be warriors. We want to mentor potential criminals.

And that approach doesn't seem to have been working. Crime is going up in his jurisdiction. And he seems to be particularly concerned with preserving this narrative that the job of the police department is to fight racism and the perception of racism, racism always in quotes, because it means nothing to these people, rather than actually go after crime. And so this raises the question, why would the police department itself, led by this individual, be so assiduous in needing to suppress to suppress the manifesto, which has anti white elements that could complicate the George Floyd narrative that catapulted this individual into his position in the first place.

So the piece does a deep dive on sort of the local dynamics and the local politics, which of course, reflect a more national issue, because the narrative about how white people are bad and all this, you know, it's become so commonplace in our national narrative as to almost be, you know, the default assumption of the ruling elite, and those who run the institutions. Well, Darren, let's get into Nashville just a little bit in particular, you're talking about a local story. Throw the image up of John Drake Jr. He's accused of shooting two cops, if I'm not mistaken, right? Right, Darren? He was on the run. Yeah, I don't actually have the update on but that's, that's the, you know, police chief's son right there.

Now, I mean, it sounds like a terrible story. Obviously, the police chief probably doesn't like this. But you know, if you can't manage that, which is closest to your own home, I think it's an interesting challenge to try and manage a whole city. Nashville, yes, it exists within the larger red state of Tennessee, one of the more conservative states. But Nashville, Darren, is a Democrat city. It's run by Democrats, right? I mean, the Democrat mayor. So it is not immune from all of these ills that are in afflicting the rest of the country, whether it's Philly, Detroit, whatever.

Nashville has these same problems. So we're seeing how race is once again being weaponized to obscure the truth, right, Darren? I mean, every time there's a shooting, every time there's some massive story, and we don't get the race right at the front paragraph, first line, you know, in bold letters, you can basically assume that it's not in their interest to bring up the race. Am I right, Darren?

Absolutely, that's the case. And you bring up a great point, an important point about Nashville as a city is pretty much every city in the United States, unfortunately, is a blue zone. It's a radical left Democrat zone, but actually, which, you know, and with everything that goes along with it, but Tennessee at the state level has actually been quite disappointing until recently, at least we at Revolver have been covering the fact that Tennessee has traditionally been one of those states that's a red state that doesn't do what is available to it in order to combat things at a state level in terms of funding universities that engage in, you know, various anti-white, anti-conservative type propaganda. Although I'm pleased to state as partially, I think, as some pressure that we generated by, we've singled out Tennessee specifically as a state that is red, that is not living up to its capability at the state level in order to address some of these cultural and institutional problems. They recently, the state legislature, I believe, banned critical race theory and other forms of indoctrination in schools.

So they have been doing a little bit, but you're right, Nashville is a different story. It's plagued with a lot of the social and institutional problems that we typically associate with, you know, just any urban environment, urban municipality in the United States. It's no exception. And the issue going on in the police department is a perfect example of this. But in this case, I think we have one driving force because it was literally this individual who was promulgated into his position of authority on the wave of the whole George Floyd, Black Lives Matter issue. And he's been a supporter of Black Lives Matter, of course. And this whole kind of ridiculous notion that if the police simply coddle criminals enough and make it their mission to avoid any perception of racism, that's somehow going to benefit the society. Well, statistics do not bear that out as is exemplified in these soaring crime rates in Nashville since this individual took his tenure.

Of course, Darren. I mean, this is what's so infuriating about this. And hopefully eventually that country can turn a corner eventually. I feel like we cannot turn on the television and see one of these press conferences out of one of these big news stories, big shootings, whatever, and not see a black police chief. Now, they might be very qualified at their job, but when you see it time and time and time again, it's, you know, the crime of noticing, Darren.

That's what we always talk about. It's like, you know, looking at commercials and it's the proportion of black and brown actors does not fit the proportion of the population in the United States. The shooter, Audrey Hale, right?

I mean, she herself despised white people, crackers, privileges, and their fancy cars. I mean, the pages of this manifesto are just shocking. Darren, you got another story here. It's similar to kind of what we're talking about with Nashville in the sense that, you know, you've got this police chief, Drake, who rises to prominent in Nashville on the George Floyd wave in 2020. Now, we're talking about how this other story, Crash Landing, the inside scoop about how COVID and affirmative action policy gutted aviation safety. This is about as big of a story as you can get, because guess what? We all travel, we all fly, and you assume that you're safe, but there are these stories percolating in the background, right, Darren, that are actually resulting in a very unsafe situation. And hopefully, we don't have something that goes seriously wrong. Tell us about it.

Absolutely. Well, this is a major investigative report by Revolver.News. It's one of our most important pieces. It took a very long time. It consists of a lot of research and also speaking directly with several officials within the FAA, several current and former air traffic controllers to get a comprehensive and accurate sense of what is actually going on. Because in recent months, we've seen a dramatic surge in what they call runway incursions. And that's when airplanes nearly collide with one another on the runway. And we've seen an associated rise in loss of separation events in air.

That means getting very close to mid-air collisions. And in fact, to quantify it, within the past 10 years, the number of runway incursions has in fact doubled, which is an arresting statistic. And New York Times, to its credit, actually had some two pretty major reports just detailing this as a new phenomenon that we need to take cognizance of, because a lot of this data is actually secret and kept from the public. So we dug deeper into the issue and found that there are actually two neglected causes for a lot of what we see going on recently. And one is COVID-related, specifically COVID hiring freeze. Now, we spoke to a former senior spokesperson for air traffic control for FAA.

And the diplomatic speak, the obfuscation was quite alarming. But even this individual called Mr. McCormick acknowledged that COVID played an enormous role in, specifically the hiring freeze, in the loss of quantity for air traffic controllers. Why did they freeze hiring in COVID? They were worried about the transmission of COVID more than they were worried about the nation's next major aviation disaster.

And this is just what we could get him to acknowledge. This is leaving aside what I think anyone could reasonably infer, which is that the COVID vaccine mandates actually contributed to a lot of retirements, because not only was there a hiring freeze, but there was a sharp spike in retirements of air traffic controllers. And given this statistics we know about how pilots were concerned about vaccine mandates, we could probably infer that a healthy percentage of the people who decided to retire were retiring in order to avoid having to take the COVID vaccine. So it's the one-two punch of freezing hiring, but also accelerating retiring that contributes to this understaffing epidemic at the core of the collapse in aviation safety. So that pertains to the quantity of air traffic controllers.

There's another side of it which affects the quality of controllers. And this we've found to go back to an Obama era policy of replacing testing mechanisms that are merit-based, merit-based sort of SAT-like tests for prospective air traffic controllers. And instead of that, using tests that test what they call bio data, which is this really bizarre jargon term for just telling people about yourself. They call it bio data. But it sounds like the college entrance exam, it's like the equivalent of the essay.

Tell us about your personal experience. We don't care about your tests. It's really amazing. We looked at the woman, there's this woman who's a professor of HR. Imagine that to begin with. She's a professor of HR. Her dissertation was literally how to use bio data tests to increase diversity. And so this is at the core of it. Read the whole piece at It will shock you. It is shocking.

And it's terrifying. Thanks, Darren, so much for your time. Thanks so much for listening, everybody.
