On the show as we are talking about the recent spring wheat tour durham to her with the wheat. Quality council across north dakota. They were up there last week. And taking a look at that spring wheat crop that been here a lot about a lot of trouble with that crop and a lot of concern with the heat and dryness. It's been up there in the northern plains at the canadian prairies and getting a good first hand. Look at what's going on in north dakota at least here last week and joining us here on the show. Today we have dave green with the week quality council. Thanks for making time to join us here today. Dave my pleasure. Well dave the spring wheat to or. I know you guys wrapping that up here this week and we've heard a lot of the stories. The last few weeks about how much trouble that spring wheat crop is in across the northern plains. The canadian prairies. And we've been hearing the reports from you and your team here this week. Just about what you're seeing now that we're wrapping up this tour or just love your thoughts. What is the shape of that. Spring wheat crop. Is it as bad as we've been fearing well. I guess the short answer is that I was kinda shocked by by how bad it was particularly the the center. Part of the state We we have seen that. There was a red blocks on that palmer drought index and and If people told us that obviously it had rained most of the state for a long time. But you know so so coming in. He's still see it with your eyes. It does shock you a little bit and just see just what you know. No rainfall can do and and and that's kind of what we saw now as far as the prize or you know caught off guard or or whether it's better than i thought are worse i i. I don't know i. I think overall i was kind of. I thought that the story of this crop tour was that there was a miller's and and end users were very concerned going this crop or that not only. Would we have a little crop but a little low yielding crop but then it would have policy issues that that the he would have shriveled kernels. And we'd have had you know not enough emphasis firm. Tough to bill and tough to blend and i. I was pleasantly surprised. I know there was a lot of relief from everybody to see that. That doesn't seem to be the case. It looks like the the weak kernels that are there as small as they are are filling not shriveling and i. I suspect we're going to end up with a with a low yielding very high quality crop. I know some of the yields that Your team sent out during the week I know some of those bad areas that you alluded to we were seeing yield estimates in the twenty s range some other estimates were in the forties. Talk about what you heard from your team in. Maybe some good areas of north dakota where he saw some of that high quality. Wieland's what did that look like. Dave almost looked. You know the picture that was described was almost like If you if you could if you put a picture frame around north dakota you know maybe that first county around the outside of the entire state or or maybe even two counties in Looks to be pretty decent. You know not not average Not above average. You know something less than average but you know normal ish looking drier season crying of crops. I mean you know to your point in the forty six As you got off of that and move towards the center of the state or towards the river We got into areas where you know it. It got exceptionally poor. And then in between those than you know were areas that had gotten a shower and didn't or vista shower. You know highly variable in some of that transition brown between the real and and those those border areas now dave. We've heard a lot of chatter on social media and and heard from folks the last few weeks that they've been comparing this crop to nineteen eighty eight. Which we know was just a terrible year. Would you say it's on that level or is it better than what we saw. Last night's all the eight. Yeah yeah i i. I would have been one of those that that i saw that as an analog year you know when you started looking at crop conditions that are reported you know it. Was you know the percent good. Excellent la- so low and that was a magic year but just looking at that crop year with you know. Twenty percents Abandonment and fifteen. Bushel yield average. What they're spillway. This crop could get to that level unless definitely good news to here and you know just overall here dave obviously looking at issues With the crop and we continue to see moving forward. How that's going to translate to final yields and everything but overall i it seems like your guys is assessment on the week quality council tour. Is that not as bad as it was made out to be but still has its issues. Would that be probably a good assessment. Oh yeah it all depends on what you what you're saying if you were expecting to see the ninety eight crop reincarnate this then. Yeah i think things are much better than than you were you. You're thinking it would be at the time but So so yeah from that from that aspect if you were that negative To that level then then this would have been surprisingly good But this is this is a you know. This is a two thirds of a crop. You know half a crop and most of those areas two-thirds of crop and other areas. So so it's it's not good dave I appreciate your time here today. Any final thoughts You want to mention for us here before we run out of time. No it was It was a good tour. We covered a lot of grab. We think we did the right. We think we stopped enough with Eleven number of people to to get Enough results that would be meaningful and We'll see how the government takes. We did here in a few weeks. We will definitely see that and we appreciate you and your teams hard work. That's dave green with quality council. Thanks for joining me today. On a i appreciate it and again. That's green with quality council. Joining us to talk about the spring wheat and durham to or last week across north dakota with the week quality council and again a lot of things to consider with that spring week rob across the northern plains. Also here on american anger today. A group of midwestern senators urged the by administration to consider biofuels like ethanol as part of its environmental agenda focused by the administration includes a push towards electric vehicles the lawmakers tell the administration in a letter quote. Unfortunately the promise of homegrown biofuels at our agriculture sector appeared to be woefully underrepresented in your administration's energy environmental and transportation agenda and quote the group meeting with president joe biden and cabinet members to discuss immediate and intermediate steps administration could take to feature american agriculture and biofuels as part of the energy and environmental agenda lawmakers say recent studies have found corn ethanol to have forty six percent lower life cycle emissions than gasoline. The letter also asked the administration to rigorously implement the renewable fuel. Standard senate republicans. John thune chuck grassley roy blunt. Jerry moran deb fisher. Mike rouse joni ernst ben sasse and roger marshall sign the letter. This has been american. Act today produced by the american league network.

"The sources us were vox NPR news in the Washington Times. This is. I'M NOT GONNA lie I. saw this coming a mile. Away. however I will say before I could over to NPR for more INFO on this topic. Some, the is toning down hair. Minnesota is doing a a better job of kind of reducing some of the the horrible behavior that we've seen I mean, but obviously the peaceful protests Should be allowed to continue once traveling on the First Amendment rights against anyone you know. That's what I'm going to talk about. On my second episode today and I'll talk about that at the end of the podcast. Over NPR the title of their article has governors pushback on trump's threat to deploy federal troops to quell unrest comes from June second, two thousand twenty. President trump and a conference call Monday with the nation's governors threatened to deploy the US military to restore order, unless dates hit by days of unrest, put down violent demonstrators, urging urging listeners to dominate lawbreakers or risk looking like a bunch of jerks it reading the White House didn't sit well with many of the governors Pogrebin, busy, responding to clashes between protesters and law enforcement and dozens of US city sparked by the death a week ago, of George, Floyd after Minneapolis police knelt on his neck. Trump a tough with the governor saying who's putting attorney general bar in charge of the federal law enforcement response, the president said the White House was strongly looking for arrest. You have to arrest these people you have to try. Those people and you have to have them in jail. For long periods of time, the president said if people are running, you have to dominate if you dominated wasting your time. He said they're gonNA overrun. You and you're going to look like a bunch of jerks. It's a moment if you don't put it down, it's going to get worse and worse. Trump said. The only time is success was when you're weak and most of you are weak. The. Call followed another night of unrest, Sunday over the May twenty fifth death of Floyd and came on the same day that the president in a Rose Garden address urge. Governors Deploy National Guard troops to quell the unrest. Of A city or state refuses to take actions that are. If a city or state refuses to take actions. If a city or state refused to take actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of US residents than I will deploy the United States military to quickly solve the problem for them in the nation's capital where the US Secret Service, uniformed officers, military police and other law enforcement on Monday fired tear gas on peaceful protesters. Of the White House, trump said he was already dispatching thousands thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism assaults and the destruction of property. While some governors, such South Carolina's Henry McMaster Republican praise trump's call for crackdowns, others took issue with the president's combative tone question, his authority to unilaterally deploy federal troops to the states during the conference call Eleanor Governor Jay Pritzker Democrat warned the president that the rhetoric coming from the White House was making it worse to was trump. SNAP BACK I don't like your rhetoric that much. Either I had to speak up and I told them his rhetoric is inflaming matters. That is making things much worse in that. We need to call for police reform brisk. Said told NPR's morning edition on Tuesday. We Need A. A call for calm and that's what the president should do, and that's what we need. National Leadership and this regard Michigan where police and protesters have skirmish in grand rapids, despite many demonstrations, peaceful governor Gretchen Whitmer a Democrat called the president's remarks dangerous instead they should be gravely concerning to all Americans. The president's calmest she said sends a clear signal that this administration is determined to sow the seeds of hatred and division, which I fear will only lead to more violence and destruction. We must reject this wave. Thinking this is a moment that calls for empathy humanity in unity. What I said in a statement. This is one of the most challenging periods in our nation's history as Americans. We must remember our enemy is racial injustice, not one another so only be linked to the rest of that article innocent. Much there, so we is. So there is I would say some disagreement. Around whether or not, the president has the power. To. Invoke the interaction at now's minniap- not many who pointed out. This normally comes at the request governor themselves, but we also saw how. Last Century. Eisenhower used it to enforce. Integration between the races in school, so while technically there is. Precedent for some people are weary of. The president actually using this and I'm worried about this myself. I am worried I. Do not want to see. The military on the streets I just don't. Want it to get to that point. So that's why I'm hoping that within the next few days or a week or so that this quells down and we get justice for George floated and shopping or shopping, or however you WanNa pounces last name That, he's tried and found guilty for the crime that we believe that he's been found on which is murder. And, for my second story of the day, traversee surrounds trump church, visit and dispersal of protesters has comes from June second two thousand twenty media coverage of President Donald Trump's appearance at Saint John's Episcopal church in Washington has differed greatly along partisan lines coverage from many lefty Dallas and some sensory outlets who is more purportedly on the excessive use of tear gas, flashbang grenades and other crowd control measures to clear protesters prior to the president's arrival, conversely some coverage from right right Al concentrate more on. On the fact that the writer set fire to the church the night before while painting the President's appearance, as well intention attempt to promote civility and faith. This comes from the Associated Press Vox and federal, so we're GONNA.

This is going to be done anyway, but who Who knows and as far as the tier guys, there's also conflicting reports I think the one people making fun of that came from the the the the federalist believe.

Yeah this is. This is a political job when history looks back on this decision. How do you think it will be written well histories written by the winners?

And chatty this is something that they've been sort of forecasting that things are going to get Braga and more bigger government kind of grow out of this. The short term will be shaped by the outcome of the November. Election is trump wins. He owns the Republican Party a vindication of his nationalistic vindictive exclusionary brand of populism wash reading some corporate large. S. So generously bestowed these past three years. Even if he loses the trump ran will continue to resonate with the rank and file less vitriolic. Republicans like former South Carolina Governor and United Nations ambassador. Nikki Haley or Florida Senator Marco. Rubio will try to walk. A delicate line embracing trump as while steering clear of his most vile elements like racist now. Republicans are going to be accused of being racist. So I mean being mean. That's going to be clear that Not to mention I disagree with those choices. Not necessarily. I'm Nikki Haley. Because there is a lot of rumors about her potentially being from VP. Pack for a Twenty Twenty. Now if you remember. Am I will say. I think the first time I referenced. This was that conversation I had with. Just Oh Camacho Back in January. A We talked about Briefly like board rethink. The Republican Party.

"Let. Let's go into the future. Okay actually tens of thousands of people were still allowed in from China so it wasn't as it is described as this great moment though there were Americans coming back with green card holders coming back but there were tens of thousands to if you're going to shut the door because you have an evaluation of of an epidemic. Then shut the door so of course. That was Jake Tapper asking her about the travel ban in January Now the thousands of people are still in were American citizens and she kind of there at the tries to kind of brush off way we do remember. When trump decided to not let those cruise ships come back here her dockyard gene nited States And the blowback from that we we we have to be honest like he would have faced a ridiculous amount of criticism mindfully especially from me and from a lot of other people had he and not allow those people to come back here. How did he just let them stranded at the airport? And what I mean like he did with or the cruise ships so I mean this idea that he was opposed to tell them that they couldn't come. Home is a little not only little. It is very very ridiculous. I'm just saying objectively speaking. That's crazy 'cause 'cause we all would have criticized him again rightfully so for not allowing American citizens to come home so I'm just Kinda in the podcast. There a will be back on Wednesday with the start of the new formats. We're going to talk about moral dilemmas very interesting you research study. That came out just a few days ago and I'm surprised.

"The freedom to travel the freedom to work. The freedom of commerce are in place across the country to slow the spread of novel Corona virus a threat perhaps greater than the spread of the Spanish flu in Nineteen Eighteen. Which killed an estimated seventeen million to fifty million people in a worldwide population of one point? Eight interesting right traditionally. When we've had governments enforce quarantines and other kinds of restrictions they generally applied to individuals. We know to believe are at risk of being infected. He said so in most cases the individual either the condition and is contagious. Or we believe he or she may have been exposed to the condition and therefore may be contagious. The problem right now is we. Don't have any test so there's no way to tell if someone is contagious. Krona virus restrictions likely to be upheld but the threat of covert nineteen is so that unbalanced Khanna said the restrictions we now face or more likely to prove not only wise in limiting the spread of the virus but also likely to gain acceptance legally as price required to deal with the public health emergency in my assessment. We live in unprecedented times because on one hand the orders are expensive but on the other hand the risk is also greater than anything we've ever seen before and so what courts usually do is they engage in balancing and look to see what evidence supported the actions governments have taken in balance that against civil liberties of individuals and in situations like this courts have often held that these actions are appropriate in the circumstances. That's my assessment. As I said this is unprecedented and to my thinking courts would find that these actions make sense a time for a critical conversation. Paul Lavelle Assistant Professor of Political Science at Fort Lewis College said given the experience of September eleventh and the continued reauthorization of the Patriot. Act which I was just talking about. That imposes some limitations on government power that conduct searches without warrants and produces the bar for showing probable cause in investigating national security threats. It is wise to examine possible impact of civil liberties in the wake of covert nineteen. This is the time when we should really have a critical conversation about the erosion of civil liberties. He said now of course people are really concerned about their health their families the livelihoods the economy jobs. So that does make it. A scary time for advocates is similarities. Because we might fear that when people are worried about making Brent worried about feeding their kids they might have less time and energy to dedicate to protecting their civil rights and liberties but of course protecting civil liberties have real life consequences long term as well developed said it strikes him that President Donald Trump is more likely to be criticized for not invoking. Enough St power them for limiting federal actions and protection of individual liberties. Now this is a much pause real quick so this is something that I've point out. I've seen where I've seen a lot of people calling for a national lockdown saying that we probably should have had a national lockdown like in February or January but again I believe the problem with that is with the downplaying the chroniclers again by people on the left and the right including the president without people having a true sense of the danger out corona virus this would have been seen as truly overstepping his powers. But you know I mean hindsight's twenty twenty back to the article. He noted that trump has been criticized for failing to invoke a national stay at home order or take control of Industries to direct production. Virus has ventilators and personal protection equipment on Earth Authority under the authority. He has under the national defense production. Act Trump's reluctance to take these orders. He said likely stems from reticence. In American popular in American political culture about too much power in the hands of the federal government especially the presidency a hypothesis that I have is perhaps it has something to do with American political culture and the deep skepticism. We have of the use of state power because you saw both trump into a much much much lesser degree Governor Jerry. Pillows be pretty reluctant to do things like issue. Stay at home guidance. Dell said so I'm GONNA end this. They are but I suggest you go check out the other article in all of the other articles talking about this very very important topic because this is something back like I said I'm not a lot of people are focusing on and it's something that we need to think about. This is really something that we need to think about okay that AH for the American Electric PODCASTS. I'll be back on Monday. My friends.

"Hello thank you for joining the American Revolution Today. Episode One twenty the American crisis last week. Okay covered a few side events in Rhode Island in Canada that took place in late. Seventeen seventy six but we all know. The main event was along the Delaware River over the last few episodes I addressed the British push to take New Jersey and the continental retreat toward Pennsylvania. Continental soldiers were leaving in droves oops as their enlistment ended or just plain deserting general Washington had another very large enlistment expiration at the end of December. Leaving him with little more than a few regiments to command. Very few soldiers saw any chance victory and were eager to go home. One of the soldiers were treating with the continentals was Thomas Paine. The author of common sense had enlisted in the Pennsylvania militia sometime. I'm after reading his famous pamphlet. He ended up in Fort Lee where he volunteered to serve. As General Nathaniel Greens a decamp. Pain and marched with the rest of the army from Fort Lee as the British under Cornwallis pursued them. According to legend pain marched with the army during the day and penned his new work the American crisis number one during the evenings as the army marched from Newark to the Delaware River. It's hard to imagine. Imagine though having time to do anything during that March perhaps he had time to scratch out a few notes. There is no good record as to exactly a how much of the crisis he wrote during the march but years later paint said that he wrote the crisis in Philadelphia after his arrival in the city on December eighth eighth. The purpose of pains essay was not to inspire the troops. It was an attempt to rally the public to the cause and encourage more for men to enlist although it is a bit lengthy for this podcast. I'm going to read it here in full since it is such a powerful work with that. Let's begin these are the Times that try men's souls the summer soldier and the sunshine. Patriot will in this crisis shrink from the service of their country but he that stands at now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman tyranny like hell is not easily conquered yet. We have this consolation with us that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph what we obtain too cheap we esteem too lightly. It is dearness. Only that gives everything. Winging Value Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods and it would be strange indeed if so celestial article his freedom should not be highly rated Britain with an army to enforce her tyranny has declared that she has a right not not only to tax to bind us in all cases whatsoever. If being bound in that manner is not slavery then there is is not such a thing as slavery upon the earth even the expressionism pious for so unlimited power can be long only to God whether the independence of the continent was declared too soon or delayed too long I will not now enter into as an argument. My own simple opinion is that had it been eight months earlier it would have been much better. We did not make the proper use of last winter. Neither could we while we were in a dependent state however the fault if it were one was all our own. The present isn't winter is worth an age if rightly employed but if lost or neglected the whole continent whoa partake of the evil and there is no punishment punishment that man does not deserve Fi. Who or what or where he will? That may be the means of sacrificing a season so precious and unuseful. We have none to blame but ourselves but no great deal is lost yet all that how has been doing for this month. Pass is rather a ravage than conquest. which the spirit of the jerseys a year ago would have quickly repulsed and which time and a little resolution resolution will soon recover? I have as little superstition in me as any man living but my secret opinion has ever been and still is is that God Almighty will not give up a people to military destruction or leave them unsupported Lee to perish who have so earnestly and so repeatedly piddly sought to avoid the calamities of war by every decent method which wisdom could invent neither have I so much of the infidel in me as to suppose that he has relinquished the government of the world and has given us up to the care of devils and as I do not I cannot suit on what grounds the king of Britain can look up to heaven for help against us. A common murderer highwaymen or a house. Breaker has as good a pretense as he. tis surprising to see how rapidly a panic will sometimes run through country. All nations and the ages have been subject to them. Britain has trembled like an egg. You at the report of a French fleet of flat bottom boats and in the fourteenth century the whole English army after ravaging the Kingdom of France was driven back like men petrified with fear and this brave exploit by a few broken forces collected and headed by a woman. Joan of ARC. Would it have in. Might Inspire some Jersey made to spirit up her countrymen and save her fair fellow sufferers from ravage and ravished -ment yet panics in some cases have their uses they produce as as much good as hurt. Their duration is always short. Then the mind soon grows through them and acquires a firmer habit than before but their peculiar advantage is that they are touchstones of sincerity and hypocrisy and bring things and men to light which might otherwise. He's have lain forever undiscovered in fact they have the same effect on secret traders which an imaginary apparition would have upon I private murderer. They sift out the hidden thoughts of man and hold them up in public to the world. Many a disguised Tori has is lately shown his head that Shell penitently solemnize with curses the day on which how arrived upon the Delaware as I was with the troops at Fort Lee and marched with them to the edge of Pennsylvania. I am well acquainted with many circumstances. which those who live at a distance no but what little or nothing of our situation? There was exceedingly cramped. The place being narrow neck of land between the North River. And the Hackensack Zac. Our force was inconsiderable being not one fourth so great as how could bring against us. We had no army to have relieved. The garrison had we shot ourselves up and stood on our defense our amunition late artillery and the best part of our stores had been removed removed on the apprehension that how would endeavour to penetrate the Jerseys in which case Fort Lee could be of no use to us for it must occur to every thinking he man whether in the army or not that these kinds of field forts are only for temporary purposes and last in use no longer than the enemy it directs his force against the particular object. Which such forts are raised to defend? Such was our situation and condition at Fort Lee on the morning of the twentieth of November when an officer arrived with information that the enemy with two hundred boats had landed about seven miles above above major general greene who commanded the garrison immediately ordered them underarms and sent express to General Washington at at the town of hackensack by way of the ferry about six miles are i. Object was to secure the bridge over the hackensack which laid up the river between the enemy and us about six miles from us and three from them. General Washington arrived in about three recorders of an hour and marched at the head of the troops toward the bridge which place I expected. We should have a brush for however they did not choose to dispute it with us and the greatest part of our troops went over the bridge the rest over the ferry except some which passed at a the mill creek between the bridge and the ferry and made their way through some marshy grounds up to the town of Hackensack and there passed the river. We brought off as baggage as the wagons could contain. The rest was lost. The simple object was to bring off the garrison and marched them till they could be strengthened by Jersey or Pennsylvania militia. So as to be able to make a stand we stayed four days at Newark collected did our outpost and some of the New Jersey Militia and marched out twice to meet the enemy on being informed that they were advocating though our the numbers were greatly inferior to theirs. How in my little opinion committed a great error in general ship and not throwing the body of his forces off from from Staten Island through and boy by which means he might have seized all our stores at Brunswick and intercepted our march into Pennsylvania? But if we believe the power of how to be limited we must likewise believe that their agents are under some providential control I shall not now attempt to give all the particulars of our retreat to the Delaware. Suffice it for the president to say that both officers and men though greatly harassed and fatigue frequently early without rest covering or provision the inevitable consequences of a long retreat for it with a manly and martial spirit all their wishes centered in one. which was that the country would turn out and help them to drive the enemy back? Voltaire has remarked that King William Liam never appeared to full advantage. But in difficulties and inaction the same remark may be made on General Washington for the character fits him. There is a natural firmness in some minds which cannot be unlocked by trifles but which when unlocked discovers a cabinet of a fortitude and I reckon it among those kind of public blessings which we do not immediately see that God hath blessed him with uninterrupted interrupted health and given him a mind that can flourish upon care I shall conclude this paper with miscellaneous remarks on the state of affairs and shall begin with asking the following question. Why is it that the enemy has left the England provinces and made these middle ones the seat of war? The answer is easy. New England is not infested with Tori's and we are. I have been tender in raising the cry against these men and used numberless arguments to show them from their danger but it will not do to sacrifice a world either to their folly or their baseness baseness the period is now arrived in which either they must or we must change our sentiments one or both must fall and what is a Tory. Good God what is he. I should not be afraid to go with a hundred gigs against a thousand Tories. Were they to were tempt. To get into harm's every Tori.

"You and i are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right well i'd like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right there's only an up or down our politics it becomes so mean so petty so negative so partisan so angry lawmakers lead them away from rivalries irrelevancies and trivialities to a unity idealism purpose and faith hello welcome the american electorate podcasts your weekly home for non partisan breakdown on the news and discussions regarding political philosophy culture and the process i-in host greg genius this is is episode number two and i have a good short short episode on tap for you this week i have some news i'll get to here in a second you have announced listen to make so last week i was in orlando florida at a conference called podcast movement i got a lot of good ideas for shows so because of that i will be making some changes to through the format the topic hasn't changed the format which aimed slightly and one of the extra week to sorta implement those and it's frustrating because i'm not getting enough content or as much content as i would like to get out but this will for sure help us out down the road now given the fact that that this is the first episode that includes news i wanna take a second explain how each of these opening segments will go to what i'll do is i'll gather the facts from anywhere from two days stories depending on what's happening in the news from sites from all over the the political spectrum left right and center wherever compile those into a paragraph that will be the story summary now day i'm going to be doing one story only due to time constraints after that if necessary i'll go over how each new source chose to cover the story and then provide some analysis you know giving you just a little bit of my opinion now of course with me only doing the maximum stories and of course this is a weekly show some things will get left out some for time reasons in other four simply being non important you know not everything that people in the mainstream media or people on twitter outraged over is actually important and i know that that that statement is very subjective objective so in cages like the two mentioned above i'll open the the segment with YM choosing not to cover a story i prefer this overall format because one it it allows you to make your opinion on the story based off the facts into it makes you aware of any particular narratives or a bias that news source may have but biases can can really be different from source to source and then this is one of the things that i find frustrating people will lump all conservative our all news together in their own separate piles as far as ah bias and decide not to watch or read the content but the reality as you'll see going forward is that the not exactly the same they just aren't you know when looking left sources like neither vox or raw story or helped imposed or jack van or mother jones i mean there's differences different systems between those and places like the atlantic or politico or the guardian or the new york times also this is another reason to diversify your primary highway news sources for example you're on the right and the main two shows that you watch venture pero and steven crowder both shows i watch on a fairly regular basis since i like i said i watch a lot of news and let's say the main left with news sources that they reference you know hypothetically and their our new segments are fox slate in my democrats three very very very very partisan news organizations if these new shows that you watch watch than you're likely getting a very narrow view of what the left may think on certain issues so this is why i wouldn't include more sources more sources you have the more well rounded your your view on what the left and the right things will be now with all that being said like i mentioned earlier due to tank mistreats i'm only doing a one story the seoul this troubling trend continues we've had yet another incident at a nice facility this time in san antonio taxes there were shots fired into one of the buildings which house ice officers and around the same time at another building nearby live where is contract was located this of course was all according to the FBI now here's a quote from all the articles i source i'm going to mention here in a second daniel bible the san antonio e. r. officer director said said quote the political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the american people regarding guarding the ice mission only served to further encourage these violent acts unquote so the sources that i use today were USA today fox news and CNN so here's the contrast this attack is actually the fourth incident on ice facility in the span of a month so i think it would be fair to call this a trend it would also be useful to mention this knee article something CNN totally failed to do both USA today and fox news cited a couple of tweets referencing the location of all four of these situations now those are just the the three sources that i used the two sources that reference it rattler embassy the BBC the washington examiner and i'm sure likely others off all found time to mention this particular fact no the the location dates were amazon or colorado those july twelve tacoma washington question was july fourteenth a washington DC was july sixteenth so those roles spanish just a couple of days and then the previous just mentioned san antonio taxes hatem the thirteenth which was last week i guess i should give CNN some credit they did mentioned the incident in tacoma that of course was the guy who showed onto the ice steger facility with guns and firebombs trying to destroy the place also things worth mentioning fox news references a breitbart tweet that that has a video of a protest that supposedly happened the day before tacoma wash. supposedly because i can't i literally can't find this anywhere else i'm only talking about at this because this is at the top of his article you know i'm not the biggest fan of breitbart and you know like i don't like that i can't find this art who anywhere else this video anywhere else but in the article this they do stay that this is an exclusive video of the protest and here's some of what it sounded like lead gio group is that they operate the broward transitional center the broward transitional center is where the innocence homestead children get taken when they age out eighteenth birthday they give them the great gift of shackles and they get taken to our transition offense shame if healing and uniting the country is actually go let you have then we have to admit that left right we're all collectively at fault here for raising using the temperature because this is definitely not one sided i mean according to the current public standards for inciting violence ailsa could be considered a floor the tacoma incident since the guy referenced her concentration camp in his manifesto but if you say it's not fair to blame her for the actions of the guy which i'm sympathetic to that particular viewpoint but you also blamed trump for nearly all of these shootings that's happened since he's been in office than i would argue that you my friend are special depleting rules for the banana for me that's it thank you so much for joining me this is the second episode of the american like your podcast if you'd like to reach out to me for any reason you can do so politics podcasts at dot com that's politic podcast at schimmel dot com we will have a full fledged episode fool fool about three to four stories maybe five news stories next week then a four second segment going into more detail about the overall themes that i mentioned in the first half of the show and and it's been a little frustrating with the lack of content but i trust me that this is about to change change for the people who have check out my podcast thank you so much and i'll see you next week my friends.

"You and I are told increasingly. We have to choose between a left or right. Well I'd like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There's only an up or down our politics. It becomes so mean so petty so negative so partisan so angry lawmakers lead them away from rivalries irrelevancies and trivialities to a unity idealism purpose and faith. Welcome to the the American Electorate podcasts. You're weekly home for a non partisan breakdown in the news and discussions regarding political philosophy culture and the political process. Army host Gregory Aniston Junior. Thank you so much for joining joining me for this first episode of my podcasts. Whether you're listening to this right after came out or down the road after. The show's become really successful. I'm grateful that you are here in in this first episode. I'll have ton to over I. I would like to talk about how exactly the podcast got started and the rest of the show. I'll explain the basic four matic and the purpose that purpose of the podcast so in two thousand eleven. That's when I discovered Dan Carlin's hardcore history high-caste and and I had already been somewhat of a fan of history. And if you like history please go check out. This podcast is absolutely amazing. You will learn a lot. Just I'm just I'm just GONNA warn you if you happen to like it. Just be prepared to get one new episode a year well Dan Carlin who I have tremendous respect for WHO. I was fortunate enough to meet at a conference in California and he also does will did a podcast called common sense and especially right when I was getting into politics full time. This became my go-to political show. I it's fun it's intelligent and it's really it's really really as old tagline says it's the it's the independent alternative to the partisan forces that you normally hear and this was really win podcasting with starting to take off you really didn't have too many other independence. Pike cast out there now now. There's several of them in there all over Youtube. And that's great. This podcast was one of the few. PODCASTS inspired me me to start podcasts. In general but there was one episode that inspired the birth of this show and the episode was titled Upgrading The electorate he talked about a variety of things. And I don't want to ruin the episode before because I will link to you but I do believe it's behind a paywall but the main question he asked was is it. Is it possible to upgrade the electorate. He also talks about a really difficult issue. And that's the informed level of the ELECTR which I do understand is a touchy topic for some people decades since the sixties when everyone gained the right to vote we developed this notion that everyone everyone needs to fulfill their civic duty and vote regardless of what you know which given the voting rights history in America. I suppose makes some sense. I mean it wasn't till eighteen fifty six to the last date got rid of the property. Requirement woman didn't get the right the votes in nineteen twenty until the nineteen th amendment was ratified hell of Americans had to wait till nineteen twenty four for the right to vote which which of course shows nineteen twenty four because they were of course given the right to vote in eighteen eighty seven provided of course he dissociated with their tribe. which so? We're not gonNA count that and of course the elephant in the room. The Voting Rights Act of nineteen sixty five getting black Americans and other racial minorities. The right to vote boy bringing all that up is of course said classism. Sexism and racism was used in order to deny people the right to vote and that itself is undeniable. Unfortunately what it also did was convinced the country that we should never pursue any type of minimal standard and that. I believe there's a problem it's been said by a lot of people. Many different ways that a well informed electorate is a prerequisite for ineffective democracy and even though well aware they even though there is no consistent definition of what it means to be informed. We all SORTA tacitly agree. That American simply do not know enough now for the record I feel I feel. I desperately feel the need to get this out the way. I'm for laws. Barring people from voting based on what they know nor would I ever be I mean given the nature of what I WanNa talk about on this podcast. I almost am required to bring it up and I've we've heard some interesting arguments on the other side and of course going to bring those up but I would never be for law actually barring people from voting based on what they know what I would like to do is to help define and create an objective standard that the average voter should be live up to. And that's one of the goals of this. PODCAST is creating creating more of a conversation around this crucial topic. You know a lot of people especially when they look at issues with the country tree A lot of people seem to think that things just get better if we could simply get better people and I. I know a lot of people were frustrated with the choice in two thousand sixteen and after after watching. Last week's debates are twenty twenty choices. Aren't looking much better. I personally at one of our main problems is with the election listen slash campaign process. It seems that each year that this process continues without fail to turn up or choices that most people aren't happy with which is why most people in the end in the voting for the lesser evil. Now the next obvious question to ask why is this partially or solely because we continue to get poor candidates. Do we really have that luck or do the voters have anything to do with it. And and and the thing is I'm not talking about voter participation as in the amount of people. Oh who decided what I mean is have we created a bad set of incentives that interns promotes bad behaviors from politicians. That result Holt in US getting the same type of candidates year after year. You know I I don't know I I don't know I don't I don't have all the answers. No one ever claimed to so it's hard for me to not only break break down the process but to pinpoint it down to just one thing I mean I wish I honestly wish I could sit here and say that if we could just fix our debate so that we can get more part. He's up there so we have more legitimate options or that when we do get more candidates up their their. Mike's actually work. Ima Sim talking to you. Hell I would actually settle for an actual debate like an actual debate and not what we have now is where it's essentially a glorified press conference. But but there's no guarantee that even that would help but I do know is that we've been heading down the wrong direction for quite some time and I don't know you spoken to yet so I don't know what side of the aisle you're ear on but if you're interested in making progress on any of these longstanding issues we have to start with fixing the foundation and that foundation indication is us one of the things that makes us so exciting to me said. This is something that we start today. There's no middleman. There's the laws that we have to deal with. We can start this discussion today. We start talking about what it means to be informed and what the voters should be expected to know and we can talk about how. How's improve our discourse? I mean we are right now. More invited than ever by one of the things I can safely say is that we all benefit from an informed electorate accurate so that's the Mo of this podcast each week and second half of the show which will be titled the subject of the Week will talk about issues along these these lines including and not limited to like ways to keep up with news or tips on debates and tactics. Were discussing politics all the time so it's always good to be prepared but that's not all of the issues. I will talk about recovery fair amount of ground. That's why in the opening assess discussions regarding political philosophy culture and the political process. So that's the second half of the show. Now the first half of this show will be a non partisan breakdown of the news and this will be slightly different from what you're used to what I'll do all gather the facts from anywhere from two eight stories depending on what's happening in the news from sites from all over the political spectrum Menaul compile those into what will be the story summary. After that. I'll explain how each of the sources if it's necessary. I'm how they chose to cover the story. So essentially I want to filter out the spin so that while you can make your opinion being based off the facts while still making aware of the narratives that are out there So this podcast will be released every Wednesday about four. Am Eastern Standard Time this show potentially will move to a seasonal format. That's actually why it came out in July I'm that's still further debate though so I will let you know oh foreign events if I ever go down that road each show will last between thirty five to forty five minutes and episode. I chose the timeframe mainly because we know at times they're either may not be a sufficient amount of news or possibly too much to over and I don't WanNa leave certain things out if I can avoid it well well this is the end of the American electorate podcast.
