Ghani bara dr It's the highest face to face encounter between the taliban in the bite administration boras also man who met with Titrate state mike pompeo last year. I'm joined by byron. York of the washington examiner byron does that maybe give us the clues to why the administration is being so secretive as to what is going on and the timeline in kabul hallel byron. You might be on go ahead. you're on now okay. It could but it underscores the perhaps the ugliest fact of this entire affair which is that. The united states is dependent on the good graces of the taliban. It sounds insane to say that but we are dependent on the good graces of the taliban to get americans out american citizens american Not forces and those Afghans who aided the american military effort. So the the fact that you know. We're having meetings with the taliban. In which in this case i think has to be done. Underscores the dependence position that the president has put us in here now bar. Dr of course does not control al qaeda or isis or any of the other splinter groups. That are there. It is unclear to me whether or not we actually have operational security guarantees from the taliban. But the thing that i'm certain about we don't know how many americans are there and i doubt that the united states government does but do you think they have at least a minimum number. They might release to us byron. Well i was relieved to find out yesterday that there are not stranded not stranded because the white house told me that But i think it's an well. Let's say this if the if the us government knows how many americans are there and he's not saying I don't know the explanation for that. But i'm taking them at their word that they literally do not know how many americans are in afghanistan

"What happened on july twenty eighth. Can you guys think of anything. That happened on july twentieth. On july twenty eighth there was a new story that didn't get a lot of coverage kind of glossed over but the details of what happened on july. Twenty eighth are critical to know what just happened in kabul afghanistan. remember we are dealing with the true enemy. Here it's not the fifth century hurting perverts of the taliban it's the sophisticated billion plus solis godless atheistic militaristic anti-american nazi regime. That is the communist chinese party or the chinese communist party on july twenty eighth. Did you know that. China met with the taliban for the wall street journal. China's foreign minister urged the taliban distance itself from terrorist groups and take steps to establish peace in afghanistan in a meeting with the groups on chinese soil signal beijing stepping. It's stepping up. Its diplomatic efforts as us withdraws from the country at the session with the taliban co founder and political chief mullah abdul ghani. So they had the top of the taliban their foreign minister wang g called taliban a pivotal military and political force. Mr wang asked all factions in afghanistan to make progress on reconciliation and establish a broad inclusive structure though detailing. What might look like so anything. That comes out of the mouth of chinese communist party. Leader is by definition ally. These are these are serpents and snakes met how to manipulate people through language. Truth is not a chinese communist party value. Different than the people of china but the gangsters that are running china.

"Missy. Ryan covers national security for the post this week. Abdulah of nassar was released from prison. Sent back to morocco and is now at home with his family. They will spend eat together for the first time in nineteen years which in there is is a miracle in a statement about a lot of said quote. I have no words to describe my overwhelming sense of happiness and joy and there are other people who have been waiting to hear about abdellatif s- release. It feels good from our perspective. Like i think the. Us government promised this man to give him. it's freedom and they gave it to him and that's great and it feels great but there are also ten other men alone who've already been cleared for release. That are just waiting. There were free on paper. But they're stuck there and besides that there are many men there that haven't gotten their fair trial. If you listen to a lot of podcast you might know this voice. It is a lot of nassir. He's one of the co hosts a radio ad and as you may have noticed. His name is very similar to abdelatif. Nassir that weird coincidence was essentially the origin of a whole podcast series. It's called the other latiff and radio. Lot goes on this. Deep dive to understand more about the guantanamo detainee who shares his name and miss is the story of a guy the other lut if nassir the one that the senses does not count the one that if you write him a letter and i have many times it'll just come right back return to sender the one that doesn't have a passport a driver's license a social security number or phone number for that. I've come to think of him as a black hole in black hole. And that's because the other lot if nassir is detaining. Two four four at guantanamo bay. We talk radio blog on monday afternoon. To hear about what he's been thinking since abdelatif nassar's release and about who. This person is beyond his identity as they guantanamo prisoner. This guy grew up in morocco. Nerdy muslim kid from the suburbs. You know middle class loved science. Had a kind of boisterous family. He felt a lot like me at the beginning. And so for me. I was kind of looking at this guy and i was thinking what happened here. The us government took abdelatif into custody because they believed he engaged in terrorist activities but his defense attorney push back on almost every premise of those accusations. She was saying you know. This guy was effectively the aid worker in the wrong place at the wrong time. He didn't do any of those things he wasn't al qaeda didn't have relationship with osama bin laden like nah. None of these things are true. Is what his lawyer said. And so for me. I thought okay. There's like a like a vacuum of information here except for two things which are diametrically opposed to one another and somehow has really been covering this man and somehow just because of my name. I've been sort of thrust into it and now i can't not do it. You know what were some of the moments from his life that you really honed in on or that you felt like you were able to get a little bit of a better picture of who this guy is. The reason moment though is a big question which was at one point in his life he goes to sudan and he goes to work on osama bin laden sunflower farm and it was such a mysterious thing because he was in before that he was in libya was with his brother his life sort of made sense up until that point and then for some reason he just goes to a country where he knows nobody to work going to farm. He's a city kid. He doesn't have any kind of farming experience. So far as i can tell paper. And why and kinda like trying to report that out really hard trying to figure out. Make sense of this guy's life you know. We came up with a interviewing his family. Basically you you can sort of piece together. Oh it has a little bit to do with. Maybe his mom's death or maybe it has a little bit to do with his feeling like You know he was a very promising. Young academic kidman potentially The first one is family to go to college but then he drops out. Because it doesn't go well you frustrated at all this academic promise and he's sort of spirals out because so much of this reporting process was was just like just piecing together just the tiniest scraps of information and trying to make a full picture of a life out of it. It feels like that. In inev- itself is part of. I think what is for many people so problematic about guantanamo. Is that because there is this vacuum of information about the people who are there. It's so easy for them to be two-dimensional even one dimensional Because they're just name in this kind of obscure black box of the us criminal justice system. And so i feel like what you were trying to do with this person. In many ways like push back against what guantanamo is at its core which is like taking a person and saying that they are a terrorist and then leaving the details at that. Yeah you're you're entirely right. Like if does feel like an erasure an eraser of a of a personality. So for example for so long in guantanamo. She's just Blackbox he didn't have a lawyer he did not so there was really hard to find out anything about it but then we got this one sheet and it was a list of his weights periodically. Way him and you'd be reading it and you'd be like is that like that's either a typo or a hunger strike like i can't tell or maybe he's sick and we were trying to piece together. Like what like imagine if someone had to recreate your life or try to try to imagine your whole life from just a list of your weight's over time. What do you know about how he was treated in guantanamo. He was not waterboarded. There were other. You know interrogation techniques that were used on him that some including myself would would call torture. For example sleep deprivation very prolonged solitary confinement sensory deprivation sensory overload. You've suffered serious hearing damage from being next to like noise machines that were running our generators. That were running for prolonged periods of time temperature. Extremities things like that. That i think i think most people would agree as torture. Did you get a chance to talk to his family or find out from them. What has been like for him to be in prison for did. I did get a chance to talk to his family. And it was very intense. I felt like they were family in mourning but without the kind of closure of a of a death and for them it's been nineteen years of just of just waiting to get their brother back to get some kind of closure to actually see him in person and be able to. Yeah kind of have this person back who've for for on tencent purposes besides like you know once a month video calls was like a ghost to them. Yeah well especially because my understanding is that he was supposed to be released from prison at the end of the obama administration or at least transferred out and then that didn't happen once trump was elected and that i can't imagine what that must have been like for his family to have the prospect of his freedom be so imminent.

"On today's show. Dr abdul el-sayed joins us to talk about vaccinations in the us and some responses to the delta variant plus have headlines but first the latest so please get vaccinated. Now it works. it's free it's never been easier and it's never been more important. Do it now for yourself in the people you care about for your neighborhood for your country it. I sound corny. But it's a patriotic thing to do. Yeah i mean even beyond being patriotic. It's like lifesaving to do he's he. He said that too though. So anyway that was president biden yesterday once again encouraging americans to get vaccinated but of course that plea came. After america fell short of a goal that he set for july fourth. The administration wanted to hit seventy percent of adults in the country with at least one shot of a cove in nineteen vaccine and they came up just short at around sixty seven percent so that's very close but still a little bit missing the mark. Yeah that's right and this came after. The white house used a lot of different tactics to try and reverse those falling vaccination rates while at the same time dealing with the more transmissible delta variant. That is now the dominant strain in the us. In that short speech he gave yesterday biden set in new goal one hundred sixty million people fully vaccinated by the end of this week right now. We're less than two and a half million people away so seems like a possibility and to get there. He emphasized a localized approach to getting people shots like more mobile clinics opportunities to get vaccinated at work. Getting employees paid time off. Vaccinations and more. So we're talking about all of this and everything else going on. We're joined again by. Epidemiologists hosts of america dissected and much much much more dr abdul el-sayed. Welcome again to wad. We're so lucky to have you get in and acuity is such a privilege to be with you all today. Well thank you. We love having you. So let's start with those july fourth goals as we mentioned the country came up just short of seventy percent of adults with the first shot so what strategies to encourage vaccinations. Do you think worked in what might not have well. I mean everybody heard them in and at this point if folks aren't vaccinated one really has to ask what gives i think you know we have this term vaccine hesitancy and i just don't think it's really hesitancy anymore. It's it's really hard into resistance. We have seen though the use of incentives in a pretty profound way whether it was Everything from going to get a free beer in new jersey or or being enrolled into a full tuition scholarship or or or million dollar lottery in places like ohio and most recently in my home state of michigan and it turns out that if you give people an incentive to do the thing that they really ought to do as if you know. Fifteen months under lockdown was not an incentive enough or the potential of dying of a disease that killed six hundred thousand people was not incentive enough. You could also win a million dollars or go to college for free and so those are starting to work. And i think they've had a lot of impact in some communities the reality of it though is like all things pandemic the vaccine has also been politicized in a way that has been really detrimental and When folks take something as simple and lifesaving as safe and effective as a vaccine turn it into some sort of referendum on On their sense of who they are giving their political identity. I think it is really hard to push beyond that said. I really admire a lot of the work that the administration is doing one last point though is also to say that you know i. It's not just folks who are ideologically opposed there are still people For whom there are real barriers. And i think the push That that was just announced yesterday by the vitamin ministration to get a vaccine door to door to get them in the hands of pediatricians and in doctors in in any circumstance even emergency rooms. Somebody comes in and they've got some acute pain you make sure that on their way out. There have been offered a covert vaccine. I think those things are going to be really helpful. And it's important for us. Even as we we think about the ideological opposition to also understand that for a lot of people aren't as easy as they may seem. If you're privileged enough to you know have a car to get where you need to go to be able to take time off work right totally. Throw another million dollars. Toni up keep coming up with millions for people to just do the thing. I'll get a third dose honestly. I really won't get that's not you know. These are just jokes. But i mean if we don't hit seventy percent and we miss out on herd immunity through vaccines like how major of a problem is that. We've seen some other people saying well we'll get there just because enough people will get sick or whatever but like what's the truth man. Well this is starting to become the tale of two pandemics and there is one for people who've decided to get vaccinated we get to go out and have brunch and enjoy our lives as if it was twenty nineteen again with some caveats but for others in communities where people have not gotten vaccinated We continue to see outbreaks outbreaks. Not just of your garden. Variety cove in nineteen Circa july of twenty twenty you're talking about the delta variant which is both meant more transmissible and evidence suggests may also be more deadly and that means that in these communities people are going to continue to struggle with cova nineteen even as In in in major urban centers where there are high degrees of vaccination that people are coming out of the pandemic so to speak well last weekend. Several republican governors got together to urge their residents to get vaccinated but a washington post. Abc poll found that forty seven percent of republicans. Were unlikely to ever get a shot. So is there anything else. That biden could do so. People would put their health before party like. Is it too late for conservatives who've been led astray until like fifteen minutes ago it comes out tomorrow and says that his election was wasn't real. Yeah just like okay. Fine accident every listen. Okay fine plaudits to these republican governors. Because it's crazy. It sounds by doing this. They're risking a lot of political ir an opening themselves up to attack from unfortunately the de facto leader of their party who is the former president donald trump and so need more republicans to step up. But but really i think. Part of this is the goal of putting this vaccine in the hands of primary care. Doctors is really important. One because in a number of rural communities one of the most trusted people in that community is is the primary care. Doc and if that primary care doc can both have a conversation about the vaccine with somebody and then immediately offer it to them before they leave the office that can really be an important source of of of of increasing vaccination rates in some of these communities again if sixteen months in lockdown and six hundred thousand people killed. Doesn't move you at some point. The the real question is what will and also on delta so in recent days johnson johnson said that their vaccine was effective against it. Then we have the health ministry in israel saying that according to some preliminary data they have the pfizer vaccine is still extremely good at preventing the severe disease Although less effective at preventing an infection in the first place. That number was a new update. What should we take away from these developments from different places.

File suggest that during the nineteen eighty one eighty two season at least three new york knicks players were indebted one of the largest drug dealers on the east coast. These debts lead the knicks to participate in point shaving or intentionally missing shots in order to get a particular score this way. Their drug dealer could place a bet on that score and because of the players cooperation he was guaranteed to win. It was the players way of paying him. Back drugs also wreaked havoc on the players.

Breaking up Big Tech in Focus as New U.S. Antitrust Bills Introduced

"I'll get problems. Okay, we'll talk about the free speech. Part of all this conversation, because, as you know, as well as everybody else, says, first member protection from the government, I mean, you can't falsely yell fire in a crowded theater and put people in danger. When it comes to Facebook and Twitter. Those are still private companies. Uh, so how does free speech fit into them? Because they're private company can pretty much say whatever they want. You signed the terms of in terms of use agreement. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I hear you. But the difference here Abdul is two things. First of all these big tech companies have immunities that are granted to them by the federal government section. This is what section to 62 to 3 is all about. Section 2 30 grants these big tech companies immunities. That that protect them from content that is published by their users, but that that and that paradigm is with the long held belief that these big tech companies are publishers, not editors. But now they've become that now they become both. I mean, when they're censoring you because you're a conservative. Because of something that you posted online, which happened to me, It's happened to a lot of you who are listening, and then there are no longer they no longer should be granted these immunities but by the law by the federal government The second. The second part of this, I think just as important is they also have monopolies, and this is where antitrust log becomes a part of the conversation as conservatives. We believe in free markets and monopolies are monopolies inherently get in the way of the free market. So you're going to see you've already seen a number of bills introduced by Republicans on both of these subjects, either. Antitrust Bills to crack up and break up big tech companies or section 2 30 bills to either reform section 2 30. I have a bill by by the way that says that if big tech companies Knowingly keep illicit material posted knowingly, then they should be held liable for it. That's one reasonable reform. I believe that could be that we could put into place. Would they would hold big tech companies accountable and, furthermore, protect our our

"The license, Beverage Association. Pride, My friend. Always gonna talk. Happy New Year. Thanks for being with us. We do appreciate it, Abdul. Thanks for having me on. So my friend. Give us an overview of the lay of the land. How is how are alcohol, tobacco and gaming doing here in Indiana these days? As you can imagine, it's down a little bit. Just the pandemic obviously, initially just really crushed the industry, and it's rebounded some, but it's still down 25 30% across the board, So you've got a lot of operators that have pretty much exhausted their savings and have taken out loans and they're kind of just hanging on by a thread right now, so we'll see what the next six months springs but I think that it's still going to continue to get worse before it gets better. Well, my friend. Let's go in and start with alcohol breath person have been Smaltz, Who's the chairman? The Public Policy Committee has introduced legislation that would make some changes to Indiana's alcohol laws. Some of them are pretty simple, for example, going to be a citizen to hold the permit because that violates the commerce clause, but also it allows for carry out some of that was made change. It was made during the pandemic that Represented smallest once he had made permanently. Yeah, That's an interesting change. Um, and that's going to affect some bars. Um, just because most licenses for four on premise consumption's at the bars and restaurants previously had not allowed people to purchase alcohol to take off the premises and consume elsewhere. When the pandemic it and everybody was forced to go to carry out only The governor signed a decree saying that anybody the holds an alcohol permit can also carry out that was just one way for them Help generate revenue. Um, now this would make those changes permanent. The only thing I would consider is a lot of those licenses in the past were bought and sold, knowing that if they had a provision that allowed them to sell, carry out that made those licenses more valuable. Suddenly you're devaluing the licenses for those permit holders. So I would like to see there be some sort of compromise compensation provision in there, acknowledging that there were some licenses that were worth more than others, and this is gonna make him all was about the same. Now, with this be just in particular region of Indiana. This we all over the state. This would be statewide so anywhere from East Chicago and Whiting all the way down to Mount Vernon and Aurora. So Yeah, pretty much every every municipality. Every county operates the same with a few exceptions for some riverfront licenses and things, But yeah, it's this would be a statewide provisions something else that represent a small It's also entered into in his legislation was a bill that would say, you know, I'm going to be in Indiana resident to hold a liquor license. Um, what do your thoughts on that? Yeah, I never liked that provision in and it's been deemed unconstitutional for awhile, And I think that if another state operator pressed it, they could probably get away with it. And as witnessed by the new liquor store up on the north side of Indianapolis, and Nora, um they were the first really big ones to come in. And say, Yeah, that's you know, that shouldn't matter whether we're out of state or not. Because if you're a bar, a restaurant and you've got, you know, shareholders, the bulk of them could be out of state. You could still get a permit. This largely applies only the liquor stores, and I know the liquor store operators are upset about it, but and I get that but ultimately Yeah, but there's nothing that says that you are better operator. If you live in Indiana, that if you live at a state, our guests on the program is a good friend Brad Klopfenstein present head of the end of the license, Barrett Associates. So we're talking about alcohol, tobacco and game and all the fun stuff. All the all the sin taxes, eh? So to speak that that are out there brand anything that you folks would like to see done with respect to alcohol that may be represented smallest, introducing his legislation. Um you know, Indian alcohol laws or not terrible right now. So, um, you know, I think that we're pretty good on the alcohol side. Like I say, I'm a little curious on what on how that carry out provisioned goes, but but by and large, you know, Indiana is not the best state that operate, but we're certainly not the worst. So, um, so I think that we're pretty happy in that regard. The biggest thing that we would like to see is and there's three different bills out there that would legalize Um, limited electronic gaming in bars and restaurants. And we would like to see those go through and definitely include the four profit bars and restaurants. So that's the big thing that could really help our industry out in the short term, and it's funny. You bring that up. So I was just about to change gears a bit, actually ask you about that. Where are we with with gaming with respect to bars, restaurants, taverns? Not for profit groups. So, like I say, there are three bills that have been filed right now, All three of them only encompass the not for profits s. Oh, that would be things like the Columbia Club, The Antelope Club, the American Legion. The V F W, um I would hope that those bills would be amended that would allow allow those games and then the establishment that holds him and alcohol permit. Um, this is something that's been legalized in Illinois since 2012. It's not going to be something where it's going to break the bank for the operator. But for your little neighborhood bar, it's gonna meet an extra $50,000 in their pockets. That's enough money that you know you could make it into 2022. It's enough money where you could improve your back. After films or maybe buy a new sign, And I think it's just really going to help these little neighborhood bars have been struggling. Now. It's funny. You bring that up because I was back in Springfield last year, No actual couple years ago went one. My favorite bars downtown. It was just just to dive this place. No bathrooms weren't clean. The rug always smelled like beer, but the but the food was great. So that's why we always went there. And then I noticed that the place was clean. They had hardwood floors, like what the hell's going to the bathroom is clean. My buddy put out those. We got those slot machines over there. It's like, Wow,.

"We are in the middle of a pandemic. There's a lot of challenges, but in many ways, it just expose the weaknesses within the system. We already have my feature. Conversation is with Abdul L.. Siad. His views on politics health, and our nation are a fresh take on what the potential of this country could be agree or disagree with them. I. Think you're GonNa want to hear and listen to what Dole has to say, there's a reason this former. Former head of the Detroit health department gubernatorial candidate, and now author has been getting national attention on CNN and a ton of other places. Abdul is out with a new book healing politics, Dr Journey into the heart of our political epidemic. After that, I'll update you on a few things around town. This is your daily. Detroit. For Thursday, August six, twenty, twenty, I'm Jay. Baer stays, and let's get started. DR political epidemic is very appropriate. Especially that word epidemic right now, that's right when I wrote this book. I took a lot of care to explain the Science of Epidemiology. It turns out that I'd be publishing it in the middle of a pandemic when it seems that most people on twitter arm show Demille just now. So there's that. Well and that's the whole thing. There's so much stuff in this conversation, which strikes me as. Shouldn't we have had these conversations in middle school science class? You know one of the real challenges that this moment is bringing up is the fact that we as a society have not done a great job really talking about and teaching about science in in a moment right now, where we're in real time trying to explain epidemic, that is flowing amongst us. Folks don't appreciate that sciences a process. It's not a body of knowledge, and so what science tells us, we ought to be doing to transmission in death to this pandemic. It changes as we learn more study more about a corona virus that's only really been humanity for seven months now, and so you're right. We really do need to do a better job of teaching science generally, but also specifically teaching epidemiology. So folks understand how this works. In what's coming because, of course, you know in a moment where it's our collective behavior that is gonNA shape whether or not. This spreads it how it spreads in whom with breads, and ultimately who it kills. You know this is critical knowledge. One of the themes speaking of collective behavior that I noticed reading this book was there's just various points where it's almost as if you call for a change in some collective behavior, one of the stories that kind of stuck out for me I live in the North End and you talk specifically about an. An example in the north end where you had your gray Ford Focus, you went to an event and it was the most modest car in the lot and you got the advice from someone that you needed to level up or something along those lines, and yet I think to myself in those situations. What about the priorities is the priority about the car like showing off or is it about to me like? Okay. Well, that's more money for your family in allows you to have more financial flexibility although I. Will Admit Great Beets are important. Well, the store you talk about happened. North. Ended at a community event and I was really surprised because we're talking the entire time about basic home affordability and quality of jobs in The kind of policies we needed to uproot party and one of the points that I make with that story though is not you know there is a natural need to keep up with the Joneses right? Even if you can't afford basic set of things, there's something about being able to have a couple of Nice things and also feeling like you want to show that you're not somebody who's struggling in the way. Way that you may be struggling, and one of the interesting things that we found is that has the access to homeownership, which, of course, homes appreciate over time as that access has dropped and people find themselves unable either to afford or have the credit to be able to afford a home, they tend to invest in things like cars because cars are are easier to afford, and they also have substantially lower sort of credit hurdles to be able to have access to. But of course, the car doesn't appreciate it depreciates, and so one of the point of trying to make is that as we move. Move in our society toward more inequality. What that does is it makes the challenge of keeping up with the Joneses so much harder in communities in, and we see that right as preferences for cars versus homes tends to change. But this isn't about you know a set of priorities in people making bad decisions. It's a lot more about our priorities, a society and the opportunities that we empower people to have to have the kind of security that could deserve this epidemic of insecurity that I talk about really is about the fact that we've created a society that show on equal and where the public. Public services that we used to be able to rely on in the systems we used to be able to rely on whether it's a housing system or a healthcare system or an economic system that they've failed US largely because they've been strangle holded in in choke holded by a few very large players who tend to exclude too many to create the kind of profit opportunities that they have, and we see this play out in day to day in sometimes less than linear or direct ways. When you talk about people taking care of each other, those kind of things that this problem of insecurity. You and I both share a family background faith. So you're Muslim, my family was Catholic for me. I was raised with the idea of servant leadership that if you're going to be a leader, you know any US someone else to do, you would be willing to do yourself, and throughout this book, I noticed something that's different about your progressive message than a lot of other things that I've specifically a focus on faith and family and I don't mean necessarily the right wing talking point way, but in a universal way that. The. Vast majority of Americans could agree with frankly look so much how I grew up and how does that tie together for you because I? Think that's a different look than a lot of times what I see when it comes to progressive politics, which doesn't talk about faith and family as much for me about faith and family are are incredibly important and one of the things that I've come to. To appreciate about the both is that for faith to operate in your life, it has to inspire you to have the humility to recognize that you believe in something that's bigger than you. Than means that means in the sight of that thing whatever that greater higher power is that you and everything else on this earth are equal and your value here is about the way that you can empower. Especially, those who don't have the privileges and opportunities that you have and I talk a little bit about the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him, and the fact that for him, his entire message was about good character about the way that you can smile somebody in. You can lift them up in that. You speak to them, that empowers them in a blitz them and recognizes that in the end, your message has to be the. The way you carry yourself because you can't be talking about inequality. You can't be talking about a more kind in uplifting society. If you yourself are not kind and uplifting, and so I, try my best to embody that in the way that move in the world and family is one of those conversations that you know when you talk about family values quote unquote talk about this in the book, it is sort of ensconced. ensconced around this perfect mythical family. That sort of exists in this mythos that is also really exclusive of. So many of kinds of families that all of us live in and the point I make in the book is that if you believe in family values than you should be about empowering families to live their best in that means making sure that they have access to good jobs that pay living wages, make sure that their. Their kids go to great schools. Make sure that they can afford a great house. Make sure that they have health care. If they get sick, make sure that if someone is choosing between.

"Not the son of I in basketball that is one of your surely Abdul we're back for me what is making a decision on the bill archer ninety three WC we're back after a few weeks have been printed by I you basketball but always good to be here lots of stuff to get to that you may have Mister past weeks let's jump right into it like I said we just had a bustling on the campaign trail the last couple weeks so but I wouldn't Hampshire we have South Carolina and Nevada then super Tuesday so join to put all this in perspective our good friend Adam rant writer of import bill and political and my friend thank you very much for being with us always good to have you here good to be with you so help us out does a good yes campaign based on your interaction with them over the past couple weeks of Iowa New Hampshire do they consider themselves of a front the front runner or at the very least a major contender for the presidency right now well in either case they are indisputably delegate leader in the rates the results of Iowa and New Hampshire old so I you know they're quite thrilled and in some senses the prize with where they're at in the race good at U. H. was back in Indianapolis on Thursday and that sort of the knowledge that he said that someone probably probably made a lot of money in the Irish betting markets if they had him and his current status right now back in January so they're very pleased with where they're at and they're now kidding you not only know that in South Carolina well how was your strategy for Bob South Carolina because obviously South Carolina is a very heavy African American democratic population Joe by that sort of like the has no last great giant stand Bernie Sanders has always kind of pulled better with African Americans and people to judge what's your game plan for South Carolina well right now if you look at a composite of the polls South Carolina he somewhere around that way which which is is not great and there's not a lot of time we're less than eighteen days out from South Carolina for him to campaign there will be and the bad of much of next week and so really you know I think that that plays expectations I mean something like a third or fourth place finish would it would be E. R. victory and I think so you know the I think the plan is to stay alive campaign trail in both Iowa and New Hampshire chase after kind of folly the Buddha judge campaign also the twists and turns of going back up to New Hampshire were there any surprises animal you up there that baby culture did so well Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden not so well our vertically with the Buddha judge campaign in so I you know I think he really he had built sort of a broad coalition of voters people who describe themselves as independents and really one of my biggest surprises calling him on the campaign trail is how many Republicans means you supported how many Republicans just dissatisfied with the trump era rather take your hand even though they don't get your money on every single issue yeah that's that's that's really one of my big surprises upper but by what you let's talk about the person kind of started out with with a lot of our momentum was former U. S. vice president Joe Biden now seems that Joe's hanging on for dear life yeah things are not looking good for him South Carolina is is firewall he also has said actually get a fundraiser that you believe he he will win the data and so this is a critical stage for him and if he's not able to mark I don't write when doctor line that he can't finish second you can't finish her he must win South Carolina for his campaign will be over we are good friends join us on the news line is Adam ran writes the blog important bill also writes for political in in apple's monthly he has been our business out on the campaign trail these last few weeks and so we're very happy to have a good friend with us online so to give us all an update on how things are and on how things are looking when it comes to this presidential race the the eight hundred well in the room my friend has got to be Michael Bloomberg who's just sort of sitting there waiting in the wings as the Democrats in the sort of job no work their way through the I wouldn't Hampshire South Carolina Nevada square looks like Michael Bloomberg as well I bring up the tab one of the tables on just about every other place for example as you know I do a radio commentary and Chicago on a on a weekly basis and he's been actually running ads on Chicago radio and the only primary isn't until mid March that's correct that's correct in justice just this week the former data director for the Indiana Democratic Party has the last the party and it's gone to work for Michael Bloomberg so he is sucking up staffers from a number of the party and other down ballot reaches across the country which could really actually even if he does well could actually hurt Democrats in down ballot races as teachers so that monopolize his talent he is getting close to two thousand staffers across the country in his class he will employ them through November regardless of whether he's the party nominee you're not the sort of building a shadow a gene structure all sort of need to add disputing the president and he certainly he is actually making inroads with African Americans as well the former mayor of Gary Indiana Karen Freeman Wilson I was actually something for him out of state this past week she's endorsed him and even though you may controversial on matters of race at stop and stressed he's sort of winning over black voters to see him as the lesser of two evils compared to president trump on speaking a present from my friend what are you hearing from the from the trump campaign universe obviously with the economy as it is sometimes a group rate is about the best is they banned our senses three years in office a lot of Americans saying Hey we're better off than.

"Dot com the great Abdul gives vase of do all I was gonna be my friend so you were telling me that the Democrats may not have a candidate for governor in the next week because the signatures are due to get on the ballot and they're not there yet we're getting pretty close to the wire for signatures for governor just all the folks you your your does your plane at home know how this works is to be godly decanter for governor you must get forty five hundred signatures on the ballot that is five hundred from each congressional district and because of that of the question is will woody Myers or Josh Ohlins be able to to make it by my last count and this was earlier this week on the twenty eighth this will be on Tuesday woody Myers campaign it turned in more than fifteen hundred something I signatures Josh ones about twenty seven hundred now wait wait fifteen hundred that's it now that was as of Tuesday so has it yeah but don't don't please no although it was a Wednesday or Thursday of this week I was told that he turned in about three hundred more pages worth of signatures now we don't know what's been verified what hasn't been verified yet but those are those are the official count and then Josh owns I was also doing consider gathering was complain that somebody it's stolen some signatures of his stalled in Shelby County in the back of a van good okay so so this is a big deal right because if anybody's going to have any chance to be Holcomb you're going to be were organized and super creative and the fact that we're this close to the wire and they don't have the signatures shows there neither one of those let's put it this way I would be if I was a cannot be very concerned about still turning in things up until the last minute our take on here we go take it from someone who has taught college for the last fifteen years Hey folks this because the paper is due on Friday that does this really mean you should be turned into and the on Friday I usually tell hopefully you turn it in early or you finished early so you're not rushing to the last minute now please note if neither one these folks has the signatures and gets on the ballot does not necessarily mean the Democrats won't have a candidate because the state Central Committee I can actually appoint a candidate to run for governor that actually has happened in the past might affect the current occupier of that office yeah good no got the nomination ought to be the candy for governor when governor Mike pence already go run for vice president back in two thousand sixteen now the difference in that is Frank Underwood I mean governor Holcomb was appointed because Mike pence was tapped as vice president in the summer so obviously that at time passed this is going to be an aptitude by these people their word on the street is that there are some Democrats who are not very happy with either Josh or Dr Myers as their possible candid say no we need people more organized also can raise money because if you look at the the dollars and sense of both candidates raise other they filed the numbers weren't all that great is it sad that I might be the best choice for the Democrats to take on Holcomb it's seven Bob users a choice rather about how have a server that one okay so we got into this a little bit last week on state house happenings only go down this rabbit hole causes a different audience let's just say neither one of these guys gets the signatures you mention the the Democrat Central Committee that would make the choice they might not be all that disappointed because quite frankly neither one of these two guys have what it's going to take to get past Holcomb it is eight million dollars cash on hand well the conspiracy theorists and the deep state folks are saying that if neither of doctor Myers or Josh ins makes on the ballot and how about we look and see what judge is doing and see where he is around July with these decisions June July when these decisions have to be made and if he's still not in the you know the writer Mavis dropped out the race for president we can tap him to run for governor of Indiana now please note any yeah that's still a very Republican state and only gone for Democrats one time in the in the know that back as man has gone for Democrats since two thousand when Frank o'bannon was governor but they'll still has no has some money so I got smart as Asian or probably make it a little bit more competitive yeah the only problem he's going to have those he's been captain pander pants to the far left and that would so he said some really offensive things are all some people off in Indiana that might work in the democratic primary but they're not gonna work in in a general election in Indiana I always tell people you should always be cognizant of your audience rob Kendall show bill gives Abbas my guess fundament any politics dot org you're doing polling informal poll in the what you call inform yelling informal survey and your you have you called the cheat sheet which is your fabulous of subscription piece where you pay and you give the juicy gossip and innuendo and you've got your email list to were people good it's free to subscribe people get daily emails me about what's going on in India politics you're asking people who live in the fifth congressional district to give you their opinion on the Republican primary all the Republican and the democratic yeah but yeah both primaries I yeah I kind of got the idea of a few days ago and when I went to my one pollster to talk about doing in a look at the price tag is like outs that's a lot for no this point in the game made a bit more closer may we wanna do something more no more more solid so I use my computer surveyed by the software that I use which actually has and is pretty accurate more more times than not yes there's some informal informal polling but the results are Monday morning just to go get a few more people in the right now we had a few hundred people kinda chime in about the Democrat and Republican site and nothing also made a point to do was also put in a couple of safeguards so candidates can't just say look now go to this website taken tools Poland and go from there no there there so they're coupled stop gaps in there to stop people from kinda of scamming the system are they thinking from the Chicago got a stop gap like which one of these pictures doesn't have a street sign on it actually it is what county do you live and and what is your zip code I like it yeah because I've been a bunch of can't name the those in the fifth and by the way and those you must answer or otherwise you cannot take the poll so I bring this up because Beth Henderson is running and she's not exactly the known quantity in the race Kelly Mitchell state treasurers running victory sparks state senators gonna you see any other she officially end she is not officially and matter of fact I just learned this weekend that she may not it was it was it was either run for Congress or not run at all now I'm hearing she may try to run for county commissioner against dog Dillinger voice she went from state senator county commissioner took a step back well the the very is that they because of her Bob sort of I counted fiscal knowledge that you might actually be able to as a county commissioner affect better changing Hamilton County this close to someone in Congress is on the federal level or as they said who's in what state related issue you know what I found out some of the other day that they do you'll appreciate you know much at county can I realize every county probably a little different we know it's a county commissioner Hendricks county makes one one thirty five forty one grand a year well what two meetings a month good grief nice work if you can get I said I never go back to politics but that seats open was tempted I didn't know you guys made that much people sleep at night apparently on your taxpayer dollars but I've been to Beth Henderson she's already running ads on our radio station and you know who else did that really early in a known quantity Mike Braun kind of seems like maybe she's Startin to take a little of a playbook the page from the Braun playbook which is Hey I got a lot of money which she does let's spend it and see what happens well you got a lot of money you've got a crowded field I'm a little surprised that they started this early because the file is even over yet mail file it is over until like like Tuesday Wednesday of all of the week so I'll surprise even at this early but in a crowded field of like thirteen fourteen people the more you need to get your name out because what I can tell you from the informal survey results that I've seen nobody can in those about Henderson as with along with a lot of other people so no started to do the numbers you spend the advertiser pull her name ID make sense now you and I both said in I guess this would have been winter of seventeen December seventeen was one bronze are running those ads news polling at like one or two percent you and I both said that guy's gonna win and and and he did ultimately because we're very smart of what we do I'm not sure I get the same feeling with Henderson that her money's gonna move quite like bronze did mate maybe I don't know how much money she has you should also remember also abroad did was it was very easy for Brian to say look look Messer toddler Kita their cardboard cutouts of each other no same black suit you know navy blue suit red tie that sort of thing and they use any also use a lot of humor in because very like no Hey can you tell these two apart and then at the very end he's at the diner and looks at the top of your head you're kind of quiet over there but I mean it was it was it was a lot of money but also get good commercials now with Ben Henderson I don't know in the field of thirteen different people how creative you can you can get but if you could do to get your name out of the out there is probably going to hell real quick before I let you go it seems like it seems like too many people Hey it's gonna be killing mental solutions the tech state treasurer but I'm talking to somebody today and he's unaffiliated with any campaign in the race and he said I would exactly tell your chickens before they hatch because the average person doesn't know who the state treasurer is and that doesn't mean a whole lot to them well the thing is but you gotta remember though who comes out in a primary I mean that is there a primary voter is different than a general election voters and your primary voters are usually your party insiders they're usually a bit more in tune with what's going on in the both the democratic and Republican sides of things and I doubt if you're Republican in Hamilton kind of votes in the primary you probably know who Kelly Mitchell this is a national treasure find image in the politics dot org on Twitter at a T.
