"So what I take from that is she's not saying she's going to run for president, but she's trying to stir the pot. She's trying to plant the seeds so that we start talking about her as a potential presidential candidate. And yeah, I think she would absolutely announce that she's running for president. Even though she just lost and got her, but whooped in a primary in one of the most conservative areas of the country. In Alaska, both Trump endorsed candidates advanced to general election races. It says Trump's 5 to one score and one night puts his overall record in statewide and federal races at 188 to 12 this election cycle. Such races are comprised of gubernatorial U.S. Senate, U.S. House and statewide executive contests. In governors races this year, Trump's record stands at 15 to three. And his Senate is a perfect 19 and O. Congressional races, he's fared fairly well with an overall primary record of 136 to 5. It says the midterm primaries are beginning to wind down as candidates who have advanced prepare for general election races. However, a few primaries remain, including Florida and New York congressional primaries on August 23rd. So August 23rd is coming up as someone who's from upstate New York. I do find it quite fascinating what we're seeing in blue states, you guys, is in 2022. This is our first round of this decades redistricting. So every ten years when we have the census, we're able to see what states gained and lost population, right? And then the number of representatives that a state is assigned the number of congressional districts, it has and Congress people representing it is determined by the population. believe the congressional districts represent on average around 700,000 people each. So for states like New York, that lose a lot of people and have lost a lot of people, especially because of COVID, but also in the years leading up to COVID, I remember when I still lived there, I moved out in 2020, but when I still lived there full time, 1 million or so people had moved out as a net loss for New York State in the ten years leading up to COVID-19, not even including COVID-19 just because of the failed leadership of governor Andrew Cuomo. And now he's gone, but I mean, his legacy remains, right? So when we have that kind of leadership, it drives people out. The decision making by the leaders in the use of force in blue states during COVID also drove them out, and now states just had to report their new population numbers. And guess what? Big states are losing congressional members. And so in New York, what we're seeing right now is Jerry Nadler, down in New York City, he's one of the guys who's now facing a primary next week on August 23rd in the New York primaries because his district is getting basically like combined in a way with another congressperson.

"This is not about left versus right. And a lot of people in the middle understand this too. This is now not just Republican versus Democrat, conservative versus liberal. This is good versus evil. And so CNN isn't commentating on this as if they agree with us. Instead, they're calling us crazy for thinking that this is good versus evil. Illegally elected and that Biden is surrounded by this army of Washington insiders called the deep state. I mean, he's right about the deep state. We don't just think there's a deep state. There is a deep state, and you can easily see that with every weekly national headline of what dirty work is the deep state covering up or performing this time because you have the mainstream media running cover for them. As they weaponize as the people in D.C., Washington politicians weaponize the power of the federal government against American citizens. Now we talked about this in the last episode of true solutions. How do you stop a radical agenda? One of the biggest solutions is the fact that the legislative branch gave spending power and legislative policy making power so control, over how society functions, really, over to the executive branch into the executive agency. So now unelected bureaucrats have a lot of power over American taxpayers and citizens. And that's really unacceptable. And it's completely unconstitutional. Is this lie that Joe Biden is illegitimate president, illegally elected, and that Biden is surrounded by this army of Washington insiders called the deep state that is doing everything they can to stop Trump from running again. Steve Bannon Trump's former chief strategist, he runs with this expanding false conspiracy daily on his podcast, it grows and grows with every news event. So, when FBI agents served a search warrant on Trump's resort, the rhetoric explodes accusing the Department of Justice and FBI agents acting like, what else? Nazis. All right, first of all, CNN was also one of the only other mainstream media outlets to say and have commentators on their site to say that the raid on Mar-a-Lago done by the FBI was not okay, that it was overblown and that if it really was about documents like they were claiming at the time, then it was not the appropriate use of government power. It was not the appropriate way to go about obtaining those documents, especially when they were already commuting with communicating with Trump lawyers. When they had a much easier and less controversial way of doing this, especially considering how delicate it would be for them to raid the house of a former president of the United States. Like many are saying, they crossed the Rubicon on this. So it's interesting to see previously I didn't praise CNN, but I gave them credit for having the commentators say, you know what? This is an appropriate. Even though it's the Republicans in the conservatives that are getting the blow right now, it's still not appropriate. So I appreciated that they said that it's unfortunate now to see that same mainstream media site CNN change the tone. This whole raid and that's what it was. This jackbooted Gestapo like right by the FBI was all about ransacking and desecrating Mar-a-Lago. They knew what this meant to the nation. They knew we went to the American people. They knew it would have meant to maga. They did it on purpose. They were planning, they're there to plant stuff. That's what this was about. That's where they kept the motors outside going. They're not going to be silent. We're not going to comply. We're not going to back down. Your total scumbags are your lawless.
Poll: Trump's Popularity Increased Following Mar-A-Lago Raid
"There was a morning consult Politico poll that came out, his favorability has increased since the FBI raid of his Mar-a-Lago estate last week. Now, that right now, 58% of Republican voters would support former president Trump if the 2024 Republican presidential primary were held today. That's the highest on record since he lost in 2020. 58%. In June, it was 53%. In July, it was 54% and now after the rate is 58%. Liz Cheney has convinced herself. Besides being Abe Lincoln, who's going to run for president in 2024, she's convinced herself that 58% of Republican voters are my number robots. Who just inhaled the Kool-Aid that evil maniacal Donald Trump fed us. We're so stupid that we need her to show us the way.
Mark Davis: Never-Trumpers Believe They're Mini Abraham Lincolns
"My friend Mark Davis pointed something out this morning that really got me thinking about how mean spirited these people are. They believe that they're smarter than everybody else. They've convinced themselves that half the country has been fooled and conned by one man that we're so stupid that we fell for Donald Trump's big lie. We're all election deniers. We're all insurrectionists. We're all, we're all imbeciles. Who got fooled by one man? And they're the ones to lead us out of the wilderness. Liz Cheney, all the never trumpers, you can go down the list, you know who they all are, the usual suspects, they're so arrogant that they have convinced themselves that they are all little mini Abe lincolns.
Liz Cheney Compared Herself to Abraham Lincoln in Concession Speech
"She actually compared herself to Abraham Lincoln because she wants people to think she's going to be a presidential candidate in 2024. The great and original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all. Lincoln ultimately prevailed, he saved our union, and he defined our obligation as Americans for all of history. Speaking at Gettysburg of the great task remaining before us, Lincoln said that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom. And that government of the people by the people and for the people shall not perish from this earth. As we meet here tonight, that remains our greatest and most important task. Wow. Who knew she's Abe Lincoln in a pantsuit? Who knew? Who knew?
Liz Cheney Is Pathetic
"The only word considering running for I could think of the only word I could think of when watching Liz Cheney's speech was pathetic. The only word that came to mind when I saw her this morning on The Today Show was pathetic. This is she is pathetic. She has become a pathetic caricature. And now she goes off into the sunset because no matter how many times she promises that like Abe Lincoln, she's going to lose her congressional race and get elected president, it isn't going to happen. You and I know it.

"And Abe Lincoln in Illinois. Biopics often seemed to inspire a herd instinct in tinseltown, 1960 saw both Oscar Wilde and the trials of Oscar Wilde, coming out, as it were, and more recently there was a big year for another gay icon with two stars not only doing Truman Capote impressions, but telling the same stories. Philip Seymour Hoffman in capote. I'm free. Moved into the hotel bar. I'm free Bogart. Where he and John, you know, Houston. And here's Toby Jones in infamous. Struggling to write a scene for bogey. Loki, you mean Humphrey Bogart? Yes. And so John. Wayne? Do I feel? Kennedy? Houston. Infamous was a tiny indie while capote was from a major studio, which explained their overlap, also true of the competing blond bombshell biopics about gene Harlow, one starring Carol baker, and the other Carol linley, two carols in films released months apart called believe it or not, Harlow and Harlow. It's like the producers had a death wish. If films are sufficiently different in tone, there won't be audience confusion, even with similar plots in 1964, shortly after the Cuban missile crisis, there were two movies about the start of World War three. Nuclear annihilation played straight in failsafe and for laughs in doctor strangelove. Hey, what about major Kong? There were no reports of moviegoers laughing at the wrong movie. It was about a decade after that, that for the first time in Hollywood history, wiser heads prevailed

"Welcome back to sound opinions, Greg, we're doing something fun. We're talking to the critics who one day will replace us. And many people instantly say that can't come soon enough. They can not come soon enough. That's right. First up, Greg, is Nick Vasquez who chose a record you love. Townsman. Self titled out, right? I'm just fascinated that a young music lover from Kentucky is writing about this record that was released decades before he was born. I warmed my heart to see a Columbia student writing about an artist who I think a lot of people have not heard of and fantastic to get that insight from a young student. Absolutely. Here's Nick. Nick, congrats on this scholarship win. Thank you. Appreciate it. You're most welcome. You worked hard all semester in reviewing the arts. You're an excellent writer before you talk about the record you reviewed. I could have chosen any of the reviews you wrote this semester, but this record was special in the review seems special. Tell us where you came from, what your major and in what you hope to do, man. So I'm from Kentucky, a small 3000 person town called hodgeville. If anybody happens to have heard of it somehow, it would probably be because it's the birthplace of Abe Lincoln. And if you go there, you will know that it is. Yes, you will know that it is the birthplace of Abe Lincoln by the myriad businesses branded Lincoln. That was fighting words in Springfield, Nick. Oh, I'm sure. I've been saying Lincoln statues. I can't escape him. I can't escape him. Yeah. What brought you to Chicago from a small town in Kentucky? I just always wanted to live in the city. You know, it was the opposite of what my life was in Kentucky, which was, you know, very much so surrounded by fields and just small rural sort of mentality. And so the allure of the city was always just something that captivated me and that I wanted to pursue and so. Chicago was relatively close by 5 and a half hour drive about. Columbia looked like a good school, so I went for it. What are you majoring in? I forget. Creative writing with the concentration and poetry. Oh, wow.

It's stimmy day when you roll over and check your phone, you see a notification from your fed wallet app, letting you know that another $2000 in fed coins has just been added directly to your account by the U.S. Federal Reserve. To be honest, part of you would love to save that money for the long term, given that things have been getting rather uncertain what would the war and the economy and all, but you can't, since these fed coins are coded as usable for consumer purchases only, and will expire and vanish in 7 days. So you better spend them while you've got them, the latest playbox it is then. Everyone says elden ring three is the hottest VR game on the metaverse right now. And then later on, when this character is trying to fill up their old SUV at the gas station, quote, you wave your phone at the pump. Nothing happens. You try again. Your phone buzzes and you look at it. There's a message from the fed, you have already spent more than the $400 maximum weekly limit on fossil fuels specified in the fed wallet user agreement. Your remaining account balance can not be used to purchase non renewable energy resources, please make an alternative purchase. Have you considered a clean, affordable new energy vehicle?

Diagnosing rare diseases can be exceptionally difficult. They don't also easily present themselves in blood tests or brain scans or even chromosomal analysis. And for the people with the rare diseases, being able to put a name to their experiences can be incredibly validating. And also give them and their medical team a road map for treatment. And for kids, it can be even more crucial in some cases to identify the cause early on. For a fair number of diseases, they can affect a person's physical attributes, especially their face. So after a conversation with the head of a medical genetics center, serial entrepreneur Modi sniper founded a new startup called FD and a, and an accompanying app called face two gene. The app uses a machine learning algorithm to analyze a patient's face and suggest possible genetic disorders. Was uniquely suited for this endeavor, having developed a number of recognition technologies in the past. Most notably selling his face recognition startup to Facebook in 2012. Phase two gene is now used by thousands of geneticists worldwide. Its core algorithm can recognize about 300 disorders with high accuracy from a patient's face. That's a boon to geneticists and families searching for a diagnosis. But the face algorithm still can't see most genetic conditions. For the rarest FDA doesn't have the 7 or more photos from different patients needed to train its algorithm to detect the disorder. Last month, scientists from FDA and several international institutions published results from a new algorithm called gestalt matcher, which they say can distinguish about a thousand conditions, a roughly threefold increase from FDA's original algorithm. And it's now available in the phase two gene app. A refined version of the algorithm for rarer cases was added to the phase two gene app last month. It can be used to create charts in which faces with the same disorder are clustered together. Clusters for similar conditions appear close to one another, in tests, the new algorithm was less powerful than the phase two gene's original system at differentiating the 300 more common conditions, but consistently able to separate the roughly 800 more disorders that the service previously Conan identify. With tweaks and collaborations, the app is having real world results. Wired gives the example of two boys from unrelated families in different countries that were both working with doctors to find the answer for the boys growth problems, tremors, and triangular shaped faces. A site called gene matcher originally paired up the two inferring that they had the same rare mutation, but not able to provide more evidence. So researchers turned to some conventional biology research, and then used an experimental algorithm from researchers who had been collaborating with FDA. The algorithm was able to back up findings from the biology research. So in the lab, it was found that the boy's mutation had a similar effect on their cells to progeria, a genetic disorder in which patients have similarly shaped faces to the boys. The algorithm, however, was able to say that while they have similarly shaped faces to children with progeria, the boys mutation was distinct from those children and was able to establish theirs as something new. And while that hasn't yet led to answers around a treatment plan, it's a huge step towards further research that could. A facial recognition app, of course, can't work for any or maybe even most diseases, but for very rare ones that present with unique facial characteristics, it can help sift through the weeds and back up other findings, kind of like how a doctor may be able to look at two patients and their list of symptoms and infer that they share a particular condition, but a more concrete blood test, for example, could confirm it. While the term facial recognition can cause alarm sometimes in many people because of fears of it being deployed non consensually by government bodies or corporations, it remains a technology that when used responsibly is one more tool in our belts for better understanding and treating so many things, including rare diseases..

Brooks Brothers Bankruptcy: Nostalgia, Anger, and a Bidding War
"The abandonment of the suit helps explain the struggles of one of America's most iconic fashion companies, brooks brothers, the two hundred two year old brand filed for bankruptcy protection on July eight sure blame cove nineteen, but now you'd be wrong. Suits with the three piece with Thai or skirts and high heels used to convey professionalism and competence, they served as symbols that you took your job seriously and respected your customers, the ones you were treating too expensive lunches, madman style, but even before the pandemic they'd become something of an anachronism. Most of us now see little to no relationship between the way we dress in our competence at work, think Mark Zuckerberg's hoodies. Indeed expensive suits can be viewed as a sign of elitism. Put it starkly. The corporate fashion code has gone by the wayside. Brooks brothers struggles represent a cultural shift, not just a Kobe tragedy. Brooks brothers famously dressed all but four presidents. It is the longest continuously operating fashion business in America and until this month it boasted about making its products in America the Brandon's three factories in the states in Massachusetts North, Carolina and New York. CEO Claude Delvecchio is planning to close those factories. We'll get to that in a minute. As you know, apparel sales have been decimated by pandemic closures in April nobody bought clothes whether from Brooks brothers or JC, Penney and other retail casualty, but did you know the actual numbers? Clothing sales fell almost ninety percent in April, according to retail dive, but brooks brothers began looking for a buyer about a year ago. The company operates five hundred stores two hundred of them in the US sales have been flat at about a billion dollars a year since twenty, seventeen, prior to the pandemic bankers estimated the company's value at three hundred to three hundred fifty million dollars. Figure Delvecchio disputed. As, I mentioned the company intends to close its three US factories later this month in the gritty industrial town of. Massachusetts home of its largest factory. Its largest immigrant workforce is being denied severance pay many of those workers, immigrants and refugees women from the Dominican Republic. Vietnam Burma and Nepal have made the company's fine clothing for years so far brooks isn't budging. Despite pleas from the union, and from members of Congress according to the Boston Globe in North Carolina, the factories, the only large employer in the little town of Garland closure would affect that town forever, mayor winifred. Hill, Murphy told The New York Times. In response, CEO, Del Vecchio, says for survival. We must hang onto as much cash as possible, but the globe reports that its chapter eleven filing includes plans to give compensation benefits, severance and bonuses totaling millions to other workers. Brooks brothers will transform, but unlike many of its retail brethren its survival is not in question. In fact, at least one bidder for the company believes it can earn annual revenue of three billion dollars within five years more than triple its current sales, so many buyers are vying for the brand at both the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg used the phrase the races on those making bids. Bids Include Mall Company Simon, property, group, authentic brands, group and W. H. P. Global another bidder is a group of Italian. Investors led by a company called GIO which typically helps fashion companies improve their online presences. The Wall Street Journal possibly with tongue firmly in cheek, considering the state cut of Brooks brothers clothing says Julia wants to quote introduced some European flair to the quintessential American brand. Julia's clients include Armani Maxmara and other designers. Brooks brothers is accepting bids through August fifth, so brooks will survive, but what about it's cheaper? Rival men's warehouse tailored brands which owns men's warehouse and the more upscale Joseph. A. Bank plans to close at least a third of its fifteen hundred stores. It said this month it hasn't filed for chapter eleven protection, but it came close according to CNN. That threat remains even after it stores reopened. Sales have been falling. They were down about eighty percent at Joseph A. Bank in the first week of June, as we all continue to do business in Pajama Pants as we all know nostalgia sells Joseph A. Bank doesn't have nearly the name or the history of Brooks brothers, which drips with nostalgia. Teddy Roosevelt apparently insisted his rough riders. Riders wear the Brand Abe. Lincoln was also a brooks brothers customer, one reason for the bidding war beyond what is sure to be the lowest price anyone ever imagined for the stalwart brand. Is What author Lisa Burn? Bach believes about Fashions Post. Pandemic Future Birnbaum who authored the twenty ten book true. Prep argues that the company must be saved after the pandemic finally end, she writes. There will be weddings. There will be funerals. There will be. We hope live operas and theatre and premieres in concerts and fancy dress parties. Where we can't predict the future, but we can observe the present, and what's happening to upscale apparel in the US. WHO's buying it and WHO's making it. Reveals a lot about our rapidly changing an enormously conflicted culture.
