United to drop contract with ExpressJet, dealing potentially fatal blow
"First story comes from. Reuters united to. Drop contract with express jet dealing fatal blow. That sounds ominous. Yes. United sent out initially a note saying that they were going to be. Choosing between one of their two rival regional carriers that the soup they're partnered with and literally with a day or two after that, they came out and said we've decided. Made me think they'd already decided the first time when they kind of gave the heads up on this. But yes, they are saying goodbye to express jet which properly announced that they may be. In. Big Trouble. So I I have a feeling that company may essentially be out of business. Now said that their contractors to operate fifty seat airplanes I was thinking that most of the regionals had moved up to seventy seat in the larger. So I was surprised that they were only operating fifty seat planes, which may be one of the reasons that they were. The ones chosen to be cut I don't know. The Air Yard. J.. One forty fives and yeah the the planes operated by express jet or going to commute. Air. Express jet has more of them currently than commute air. But commuters going to be the sole United Yard J. One, four, five operator. And I guess the logic for this kind of. Obvious maybe united is. looking ahead and seeing themselves as becoming a smaller airline as are most of them. These days result of the pandemic. Andy. United wants to consolidate these and the they do say that transition will take a number of months, which is not very specific. But both expressed jet and commute air been around the wild. So they both really formed in the Eighties Express, jet was established in eighty six. Operations started in nineteen, eighty seven. And Commute Air was founded in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty nine. So they both have a history. I I don't really know. What the the logic is that united employed to decide which of those two was gonna be the going forward commuter airline for united but Here's the result Yup and undoubtedly more pilot for lows. Yes yes. Well. Yeah. I mean we're worse than furloughs I mean the the airlines evaporated it's interesting you know United I'm wondering. is going to maybe work their way into getting into doing their own regional flights. It would be interesting to see if you know if they've weaned off one, maybe they can take over those routes you know and eventually consolidate to doing what airlines did back in the day and that was they flew everywhere and didn't subcontract. Well there's that little pesky scope clause issues that Throws a monkey wrench in that. I don't know you know. SCOPE clause has been around for a long time, and of course, this is the. This is the the rule I'm not sure what you call it. Exactly the the agreement that results in a separation of pilots between the regionals that are supplying the The airlines majors. And the majors and kind of has prevented and absorption of the regionals by the majors. But it's kind of you know it's kind of an artificial in many ways concept. Maybe these are the times when that whole thing might get questioned. I mean let's face it. We're talking about something you know post these airlines were created in the early eighties. That's forty years ago it's hard to believe. That being said, maybe it's time to re look at scope clauses especially these you know these days so. Interesting. It'll be interesting to see if the other regional start consolidating like this also with the other airlines.

House, Senate pass bills to study the number of cancers striking military pilots
"PASSES BILLS TO STUDY MILITARY PILOT CANCERS FROM mcclatchy Washington bureau little bit late on that. I did I was GONNA say anything but okay. The Department of Defense would be required to identify how many of the current or former aviators have been diagnosed with cancer in in bills passed by the House and Senate this week a study long sought by military pilots who have questioned why there are so many serious illnesses in their community. The legislation was included in both chambers versions of the seven hundred and forty billion fiscal year twenty, twenty, one national defense authorization. Act following a series of stories by mcclatchy on the alarming clusters of cancer among current or former military aviators. I'm one of those including four commanding officers at a Premier Navy weapons testing base in California who have died of cancer since two thousand fifteen. Oh let me clarify I'm not one of those that has been diagnosed with cancer but I am a former military aviator. Two versions of the twenty one, twenty, one spending bill will now go to house and Senate negotiators to iron out differences before being sent to President Donald Trump to be signed into law. Betty semen the wife of one of the four commanding officers at Naval Air Weapons Station China. Lake. died of cancer. Welcome to the important milestone. She says since loving since losing I'm sure she loved him too since losing my husband I have met too many other families on the same unwanted journey. We all share a universal prayer that no other family will have to go through a similar loss today brings us one step closer to that realization Miss Seaman said in an e mail to mcclatchy but that's a great name. Her husband's name was a commander Semen S. e. a. m. a. n., and he is a naval officer. Wow that was he was in the if he was in Canada heath now be a sailor. So his last name. Is they're getting rid, of semen. Because of the obvious connotations. Changing the position to say okay. Let's see. Senator Dianne Feinstein from California introduced the military aviators. Cancer Incidence Study Act after mcclatchy reported that military aviators may be at a higher risk of developing certain cancers. Let's see. There was a little bit of information here. The database would include every service member since nineteen sixty one who served in an aviator role. The legislation defines aviators, members of the aircrew such as pilots and Napa who they included navigators in their two. Members of the grand create usually asleep on me. I did that on purpose because we have several navigators listen to the show. Let's see. WHO SHOULD WE? I'm offended at airline pilot guy dot com has the email address. And members of the ground crew who worked on the aircraft pilots who have been lobbying for the legislation wanted to ensure that ground crew such as enlisted personnel who worked to launch jets aircraft carriers were included. Because, they were exposed to many of the same radar emissions or fuels. The bill requires a database to be completed within a year. So I guess they're assuming that. The radar emissions and fuel and the jets have something to do with this. With these cancers. Anyway. So that's good. That they're doing this and I guess that. I will be contacted at some point. To probably. Yeah to fill out some kind of survey regarding my health,

Long live the Queen: We say goodbye to a big chunk of the passenger 747 fleet
"In the last episode Jason said. Go What did I say you said that you could still fly on a British Airways seven, four seven at the time that I said it that was a true statement. And it was a true statement for all of seventy two hours. Then British Airways said, no, you can't. No, you can't they're gone. They're gone effective immediately and we will never fly again. We don't even know if they're going to get any sort of official sendoff for celebration or anything do the at calm rumors necessarily but kind of scuttle. But around the water cooler such as it is says that they are not inclined to participate in any sort of send off because of the current climate they find themselves in. Well. That is just extremely on physician by I think more. So than any other airliner, even really any other aircraft and I know people are going to argue in bicker about this. And L. means emails. Two four DOT com. When I, think of British Airways I think of the seven four, seven I think of the seven four, seven, I think of British Airways the two are intrinsically linked. To imagine a British Airways were about seven, four seven is really difficult for me. Yeah. It's. It's of those things that You know there was a couple. Are a couple lines that you immediately associate the seven, four seven with an obviously the the first and foremost him just because of the history there. But then when when you kind of think of like the top three or four airlines, I, immediately think British Airways KLM. And the. KLM has already retired or I think mostly retired. So they have to serving in in cargo capacity to combat serving cargo Carl only capacity. But but yeah, they're not flying passengers and yeah and KLM only had a few towards the later days but British Airways a significant chunk of its widebody fleet was still seven four. Yeah I mean they were operating a fleet of thirty. So I mean that's not we're down to two tons of with twenty eight young. British Airways we see to retire its entire seven, four, seven fleet by either twenty, twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, four. So the writing the wall but the wall we've got a whole lot closer right the the wall basically fell. Fell on top of the fleet but there are still some four sevens out there. There are still chances may be two to fly them. Should you want to go out and do that? Obviously, your best chance is going to be Lufthansa at some point, they haven't announced anything about retiring. There's they're putting them into two storage. Planning bring them back So twenty, their Korean Airlines has twelve China Airlines has four Air China has eight, and then you kind of start to whittle things down I. I would say that the under a Russia has nine, but I would say that there's a good chance that may be Thai Airways with eight is probably not bringing there's back or if they do, it won't be for long. But I could be wrong. Indy only has four in. It'll be interesting to see what they ended up doing with there's and then there's a few charter airlines like wellness has five and Atlas Air has four. So you can't really book a ticket on those but you know you've got stand up on you. You've got a decent chance of flying on those if you book a ticket on other airlines. So thankfully at least for my New York City centric mind, we have three airlines that to be the three airlines operate the seven, four, seven, Dash Eight. Tonnes a Korean Air, China all at some point operated the the dash eight two K. typically in the summer. So I hope we see them again. But honestly, there is a a likely reality in which JFK does not see a seven, four, seven in regular passenger service. Again, I don't think it's out of the question that that's a possibility and that makes me very, very sad. Yeah. I. Mean I. I was thinking about this the other day when we were putting kind of listing who who, still flying him and things like that and and I was supposed to do a trip hin in April. Originally, we were going to do something really cool and one of the things that I was really looking forward to flying the Lufthansa's dash eight but did not get that chance but maybe next year year after it'll still be there and still be a possibility. But yeah, I. Mean the fleet was just such you know. That that livery. Deliveries on the for seven just looked so good and then when they did the the heritage liveries games, they just looked so
Accenture’s aerospace team reveals strategies for aerospace CEOs looking to the future
"What is the state of aerospace and defense today, and what's your outlook for twenty twenty one and has that changed at all in the in the recent past Recent past go back into a January February odd things have changed dramatically. If you say recent past in terms of how feeling today for. So spilling back in in. June. Not Not nearly as much. I think know by sum it up I think I look at the industry and so almost tell two cities. If you remember that Dickens novel where on the commercial side, we have all kinds of things going on and you know the impact of airlines and the reduction in capacity, and now reduced number of aircraft being taken and all that kind of stuff going on dampening down you know the business and Yoga Cyber Defence and defence. Largely continuing to perform you know well There are some some issues. There are some blips in supply chain certainly related to things like covid. But it's really is tell to city and we look at Boeing and Airbus both announcing production rates and rate cuts, and of course, we have the existing 737 challenge facing history as well. No I think there's a different side of the coin when we start looking at what's happening on the defense side. And what is that different side of the coin much more positive right? Well, it's much more positive and you know this morning are. Reported there the results in in even just in our she concede example of the Tele two cities playing out. Right now and you know. I think. What I'd like to say is that looking at what's what we're hearing and if we were going to go into farmer air, show the share, which, of course, unfortunately, we did not every year accenture steps back and looks at kind of what we're seeing across the numerous research elements that we have our tech vision, our commercial index and supply chain research, and we look at the work we're doing for clients we look at what we're talking to our. Clients about in terms of where their priorities are. We look at what's going on in industry at large, and from that, we try to distill out what we think are really going to be the you know quote unquote stories to watch and weird do that this year Joe I think there's four things that I think would come out in their four things that I hear consistently I think pat would echo this well when we talked to sea level executives Across our clients defense and commercial, those four things are related to cash management number one number two supply chains smart manufacturing number three workforce in workforce impact in a before's is really rounding technology in systems in resiliency of those systems. into look thinking about where we are today in covert and and what companies need be thinking about as they look forward, their calendar twenty-one. Those four things are really top of mind. Pat, what's what are your thoughts had? We gone to Farnborough what were you prepared to be talking about I? Think the themes that John mentioned are spot on one concept that intertwined through cash management supply chain workforce and systems resiliency is really a need to continue the digital transformation the the level of of change that aerospace and defense companies are dealing with today is is really unprecedented and I think it's changed Focus of of trying to accelerate the agility of decision-making workforces is been fascinating topic. How has a house the debate on that changed in this? I mean, we had a lot of ish. A lot of the talk was about workforce shortages and now companies are laying off tens of thousands of people said, Short Term Blip, John, I mean what are you telling companies to do to be prepared for the workforce of the future? You know. It's interesting. If you think back a couple years, we're worried about the grace. ooh Nami and everybody retiring he let me go back back to January timeframe worried about shortages whether it's pilots are or people in the maintenance shops in of course, we see companies laying off and furloughing on the commercial side, but we also see companies on the defense side hiring, right? So I think Lockheed announced five thousand new hires northbound eight thousand new. Hires right. So it's almost again that tell see what's happening but I think you know the three things that were talking to clients lot about now in this code world where we have more people remark in remotely than we ever did before Amsterdam you have more you're gonNA WANNA add onto this but it's really about you know the people experience how how each individual worker is being interacted with with their company and that comes down to. How they were who they work with and how they get their work done. The second thing is around or Culture. The culture particularly, I think in our industry and maybe I'm biased because I'm in this of this industry but you know you walk into the building and you see the sign, you see the flag, you walk through the hallways almost any aerospace defense office or even in factory assembly floor, and you see the product you see pictures of the product you see people, pictures of people using the products I mean that helps build culture. Now, I, see the four walls of my Home Office or maybe it's my kitchen table or wherever I happen to be working remotely. It's it's a big topic these days how you manage in we'd and maintain culture in the third is really about the work itself and how the workforce works at work in Delhi deals with things like remote collectively high-performance compute environments. Can I get to those from homes cure environment
EPA aviation climate control proposal
"First story comes from manufacturing dot net US says, it will adopt gradual climate standards for aviation. That's a line that kind of sparks some interest. Given the history with maybe the the European views of airplane emissions compared to. Well, the United States and some other countries as well. So what we have here, his the EPA, the environmental. Protection Agency has proposed new aircraft emissions regulations he and some people are criticizing them in other applauding them. Well, this proposal adopts the twenty seventeen emission standards from. The International Civil Aviation Organization. So Boeing and the Airlines for America Trade Group welcomed the proposal. Meanwhile environmental groups and even the EPA itself said that the proposed regulations would really have no meaningful effect. This is. Kind of frustrating I. Love Our current climate where we? Excuse the Pun where where the regulatory agency issuing the regulations is saying it's probably not the best thing that we've done, but here it is anyway I just. Kind of exasperating. Well, it is. It is the representative from the center for Biological Diversity. Had An interesting comment. that. Rip said they are literally just ANTIBAC- sliding provision. They don't require anyone to improve. They just say when doing stuff don't make it worse. Yes, but then you get credit for having done something even if you didn't well, I also that that I think that's the motto of Tonight's episode is we're doing stuff. Don't make it worse. Well, we should mention how much they are planning to reduce it They said that they plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for new aircraft by four percent over twelve years. So that's one percent what every three years. I don't know from just kind of engineering standpoint. That's very, very really little improvement in efficiency and I would think that just by occasionally burning a little biofuel, they can nail that one, another perspective I, it comes from the hill which reports that an analysis from the International Council on clean. Transportation. Found that most airlines in the United States covering more than three quarters of Asian demand already meet the K. KO standards. So, we don't WanNA get into politics. But here, here's some proposed regulations that. You know one group of individuals say don't have any teeth whatsoever. Their lines for America a a is commenting that this is nice. Balanced approach that kind of Addresses all the concerns but So. There we have it. It is just a proposal. I, don't know what the process is to Go forward with this, but it is a proposal, notice a of no, our PM's NPR 'em no. Yeah I I. Don't know. I don't know how the EPA does. I don't know if they do the same way. The FAA does that being? Developed briefly make that would possibly make sense. But that doesn't probably isn't how to happen.

"Blade is fighting United Airlines for access to the full suite of code so he could build them for his speech recognition system for customers to check the status of flights and they're very reluctant to expose them for various reasons. I'm sure yeah. But they've made clear that they do not talk about the mayday codes the codes that report back when something with the flight has gone wrong unfortunately in their business though things do go wrong. Flights Ju- crash and Blade was pushing for them to do the right thing. In these situations. There are three major codes. I said what access to that. I want to be able to do the right thing. Which is to transfer to the special groups that anything between good him right with people need so his vision for this. Is that when there's a mayday code? They treated in the same way. They do a major snowstorm. Pull up all their top support agents into one of these dedicated support rooms at their headquarters and route callers directly to them when calling about an effective flight right so this goes well beyond the design of this phone system. Bleed is proposing fundamental process changes. In how they handle emergencies internally so we can't give it to you why not? We've got a three tiered architecture. The database speaks of the middleware layer. It stripped out all that stuff and sends it out to the agent screens screens in the airport of the phone system the website at Cetera. But here's what we can do in this situation. We do the right thing. We'd opportunity to do the right thing. Because that was the center line of the experience. And this had looked GONNA take us weeks to do a special connector for you and you take you weeks to do since that we're GONNA lose money in the process and thankfully my company that I worked for and united did it and we took the head to do the right thing great leadership who understood the value of adhering to the centerline. Even though I didn't have those words back so they actually got bill lades vision of an automated system that creates the proper experience most good situations and bad situations and that brings us to September eleventh.

Cnn breaking new this just annual looking at obviously a very disturbing live shot there that is the World Trade Center and we have unconfirmed reports this morning that a plane has crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. There is a major incident in Lower Manhattan. That we just got a report in that. There's been some sort of explosion at the World Trade Center in New York City. Apparently a plane has just crashed into the World Trade Center. We understand that a plane has crashed into the World Trade Center. We have serious news of a major possible aircrash in the United States and incredible plane crash into the World Trade Center. That happened within the last few moments of you moments ago. Something believed to be a crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. We have no idea what it was. It was a tremendous boom so on the morning of nine eleven there was panic and confusion especially for those that had loved ones that were either flying or working inside the World Trade Centers. Hundreds even thousands of families who had loved one's flying that morning were left clear answers for hours as these tragic events unfolded. And here's where we see. The diverging results of these two companies decisions one company United Airlines spent the extra time and effort to put a process in place. For extreme circumstances like this unfortunately on September eleventh that worked and people called up asked about five ninety three and it said I think calling about five ninety three. Is that correct? Yes hold on. Let me get you someone who can help it. Transform into the to the right call center not only my system for united was lauded in the New York Times. It said this. This reporter said by the time you've finished using the system by the time you fish using the system you'll want to take the voice to dinner right. It was wonderful to treat people humanely in quick but American Airlines had passed on using blades team to develop their phone system they instead decided to cut corners and hire a less experienced firm to try to replicate what blades team had done for. United American Airlines We tried to talk to and they didn't want to buy from us and what they did was they had a company reverse engineer my system. Reverse engineer word for word for word everything not doing. The basic established experience online for them. When people call the American on that day. It said that flight is in the air and someone thought someone was safe. Who wasn't so while they were able to practically duplicate the system that bladed built. They never built in the mayday codes and because of that families on nine eleven were told that their loved ones were safe when in fact their planes had already crashed. This is what happens when you're a designer. You have the opportunity. Create moments had a really wonderful even if they only occur merely or maybe never because that central on that drove those moments drive everything else as well and that's the power of of great design and great experience and when you create the right vision for everyone to understand the value of that it connects engineering marketing sales project management manufacturing everybody. 'cause they're all driven to support that effort and you take that time to do that. That work at the beginning of this very little output. You don't see much happening that first-phase enough. I can't show you the thinking I did. I can make things up because I I learned eventually to make things up until the truth. You lie how far we live with the project junior designer. Oh we've done these four things go but we've got a list of twenty five things. We're never going to get done seniors. I know how to lie well. We investigated the personas. We've we've we don't. We're not gonNA do a metaphor. We'll take an hour talking about two points of ten. You'll think. Wow if they spent that much time on this to the other eight gotta be great and as a result That's how you get your time to do your deep thinking. He's what's he done that. The second half is so fast you get right into the second. Half is super fast. At that point you are all aligned. The communication's faster. You know what you want to do. You know why it's important and everyone works together to create that incredible thing and they feel better about what they've created. They feel more proud when they see people using it. It is a material difference and it is the material reflection of all that work you did at the beginning to define the centerline that experience. What an incredible lesson I. It's tragic but it is a reminder for all of us to push that extra mile to build experiences that treat each other humanely even in the worst unexpected circumstances. Yeah so next week. We'll be back with the story about audible. Who's mistake wasn't as dire as American Airlines here? But it may have caused some marital riffs and disgruntled the trucking community all at once.

"White House reporter for the Washington Post and thanks so much for joining us. It's my pleasure. Have President Trump's budget out. This week isn't going anywhere right now. Given the Democratic Control of the House of Representatives but it does give you a sense of his priorities especially if he wins a second. Turn and those priorities do not it. Favorite Greener Forms of transportation like public transit and trains for more. Let's bring in. Seth Kaplan here now transportation analyst. Seth Jeremy Okay. Let's start with the the most famous train line in the country. I would say that is Amtrak. The Nation's rail service which reported a record number of passengers last year more than thirty two million we spoke with with the CEO on this show and he projected positive earnings for Amtrak this year for the first time ever so why are cuts being proposed. Or what kind of cuts are being proposed. The big ones derby a billion dollars skewed more toward the long haul routes as you and I have discussed before the show are the ones that really lose a lot of money. The cuts also in the northeast corridor. The routes between New York and Boston New York and Washington and so forth which are more viable worth noting by the way Jeremy Those long haul routes which the administration noted are the ones that are less viable. Those are the ones that run through rural America. What you might call Red State America of course supports a kind of like? There's surprises some surprises with the budget. Over all right the the administration willing to tolerate headlines about cuts to entitlements like Medicare and social security that are popular among senior. Your voters This too willing to take that chance with with some of their core supporters. And when you look at the other cuts the administration's proposing for transportation spending what stands out cutting money also for across the board all kinds of things including airport improvements for example being slashed by four one hundred million dollars. I if if they were to get what they wanted and and public transit as well absolutely. That's on the chopping block to pretty much everything everything With the exception of of roads and bridges overall now now they're even there a lot of their sort of robbing Peter to pay. Paul well There there are cuts to some of those kinds of things but on a net basis. No question what what you said before. Greener forms of transportation are the ones that no matter how you you measure it or are taking the biggest hit so in terms of what the administration does want to spend money on transportation. What's in there yes? So it's talking about a trillion dollars over ten years for yeah mostly roads and bridges things that that tend to benefit automobiles now. Not all of that would would be new spending. I mean the government would spend a certain amount of money on all that anyway but that would be a big increase that it would also extend the time. Normally this would be. Oh five years. At a time they'd be committing to ten years of big spending and that would even despite what would have been spent anyway be in fact a big increase in for a longer period of time. Ah Seth when you look at this budget proposal from the trump administration and then combine it with some of the other places where Democrats are in charge. California's Democratic governor just pause to the high-speed train being built from southern California to the bay area over cost concerns are advocates of trains in public transit. Losing the fight in the big picture. It's kind of hard to paint with a very broad brush. I mean in California what happened. Is that the public was was all for the idea of a high-speed train but it just ended up costing so much more than anybody had imagine there are localities like Nashville of voted against an expansion transit despite some progressive instincts but others like Phoenix next. That voted in favor of expanding their public transit system. So so a mixed record for sure that is here now. Transportation analysts. Seth Kaplan said. Thank you gary..

"From NPR and WBZ. I'm Jeremy Hobson. I'm Robin Young. It's here and now. Let's Thi this up Bernie Sanders when the New Hampshire primary last night and let me say a night that this victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump but p Buddha judge it's lead in the delegate count and last night took aim at Sanders Progressive Agenda including Medicare for all Americans want the freedom to make choices for themselves on healthcare. You're or on any other issue not to have Washington decide for them and a politics of my way or the highway is a road to reelecting donald trump third the bronze but a big victory went to Amy Klobuchar. Hello America I'm Amy Klobuchar and I will beat Donald Trump. Well the previous top candidates Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden came in a dismal fourth and fifth but vowed to press on. Let's bring in our political strategist bill. Press Democrat Hi Bill. Hello Rob Jeremy. Alice and Alice Stewart is one. Let's talk to me about their Republican. I Alice Hi Jeremy I Robin Hi Bill. Okay so Bill let me start with you. What do the top three Democrats At least in New Hampshire Sanders Buddha judge and Klobuchar need to do you now to show that they can win in places like Nevada and South Carolina which have much more diverse electorates. Are they going to get to work. And they got around a lot more votes they have to raise a lot more money and they have to appeal to a broader audience for for sure to state the obvious. It was a really good night for Bernie Santos for people to judge for Amy Klobuchar. But I think before anybody pops a champagne or or jumps off a cliff. I think as to stand back and realize is that Yes Bernie one in New Hampshire But people to judge and Amy Klobuchar Together got a lot more votes than he did So so you can say. The end of the moderates showed their strength as well as Progressive Bernie and the other thing is as Elizabeth. Warren pointed out last night were two states down to red states to mostly white states to states. That Democrats are not necessarily going to win their fifty five states and territories to go a lot more diverse A lot more challenging. And then there's Michael Bloomberg hanging out there so right just starting to get wild and anybody who tells you. They know who the Democratic Arctic nominee is. Today is lying but do you think I know we're only two states town. But do you think that Joe Biden for example can go through the next two two weeks until South Carolina. I mean assuming that he doesn't win in Nevada maybe he will end really get through that with all the attention incheon that it's going to be paid to the other candidates and people starting to think well they might be the president. Is he going to be able to go through all the way for a couple of weeks without a win put us. I would not count him out out in this year. I would not count him out. I think he has a lot of strength. A lot of people that love him because of his his his record his experience and the fact that they see him as a more stable maybe challenger to Donald Trump but It depends a lot on his donor base. He needs the gas to be able to run through Nevada and South South Carolina. Okay we'll bill. First of all Democrats in New Hampshire would say we're a purple state. I'm Alice just to you. Because both closure and bandages are saying they day can draw support from Republican independence now. We met a lot of Republicans in New Hampshire looking for a candidate that was not donald trump again new hamper new New Hampshire little purple. These might be old school. Republicans not at all the trump base. But do you think that's going to be a factor. The fact that they can offer people outside the Democratic Party. They're saying they can a candidate. It certainly is an argument. They can make they are more moderate They certainly have shown they have the ability to connect connect with voters and our contrast from what we're seeing with regard to the direction of the Democratic Party. There's no denying that Sanders performance in New Hampshire has painted a picture that his progressive policies or part of the Democratic Party's mainstream ideology at least for now. I do expect that to change. Because a lot of what we're hearing in the polls are indicating. Is that Democratic Party while they have a large voice on the progressive subside. They also have a strong voice on the moderate side hence they strong performance of Buddha judge and Klobuchar yesterday was a big victory for Sanders and and for Buddha judge and Kluber Char. It was a huge wakeup call for Joe Biden. He needs to really scramble and get his act together in South Carolina and I view it as a circling the Drain Rain Moment for Elizabeth Warren G. Really she really has run out of steam but the important thing to keep in mind. These first four early states between Iowa New Hampshire Nevada and South Carolina that only makes up four percent of the total delegates needed. So we're still we're looking at it from this aspect but we're still at the very beginning stages of a very long process circling the drain. Let's listen to a little of Elizabeth Warren from last night Senator Sanders and mayor. Buddha judge had strong nights and I also also want to congratulate my friend and colleague Amy Klobuchar for showing. Just how wrong the pundits can be when they count a woman out until This is being very very dignified. ungracious there but as you both have been saying Klobuchar. Buddha Judge Biden. Supporters are more than the Warren and sanders combine. It seems that within the Ward Sanders Camp Democrats are choosing sanders. Where do you? What do you see Liz with Warren? GOING WHOA I. I do think that the challenge in the inside the Democratic Party is the same as it was when this whole process began. which is if you will the more progressive versus the the moderate progressive because Buddha judge in club which are hardly Biden are hardly conservative right and but in that th Elizabeth Warren's first I then challenge was in the more Progressive Lane to beat Bernie Sanders says only room for one person in lane? It looked like she had done it at one point fine but she has not now and I don't think she can recover. I think she is a very graceful speech. Last night She's a good candidate but I don't think she's GonNa make. Let's talk about the candidate who was not competing in either of the state's Michael Bloomberg who's been spending a ton of money on ads especially in those Super Tuesday states it's that'll happen at the beginning of March and I think it's something like forty percent of the delegates are going to be given out on that day but Bloomberg was in the headlines Yesterday because because of some audio that surfaced of him defending the controversial stop and Frisk Policy Police tactics that he expanded in New York City. Here's some of that. Sound the arrest in marijuana on. That's true why is already If you can't hear that he's saying Why do we put all the cops the minority neighborhoods? Because that's where all the crime is. alice us. President Trump tweeted this out. He called Bloomberg Racist. We should point out that. Of course president trump has been accused of being a racist and also support stop and Frisk policing but what did you think of this and do you think this is GonNa hurt Bloomberg. This is what you call an October surprise in February and this was a effective way to put with him on his heels when he has the wind at his back right now look his position. I didn't support. I think it was a act inaccurate thing to say he has come out he's Owned up to it. He's apologized and he's asking people to move on what we're seeing the last few days. He has really made a strong effort to reach out to the African the American community he is receiving endorsements. I'm seeing you you go online and social media you're seeing a lot of black leaders organizations Getting behind him. He's is making a conscious effort. I expect this to be a one or two day story and and move on with regard to the audio tape but he is gaining strength in these super Tuesday states dates where he's put a lot of effort and in Arkansas. Even my former state. He's doing well. His problem is not going to be as much with the African Americans. He has a problem. I'm connecting with rural voters. That's what I'm hearing across these these states where there's a large electric a rural voters. He needs to fine tune his message on what he can do for those voters. We just have a couple of minutes. I WanNa make sure that we get your story but what own make sure we get to something that some would say is a February surprise. There are calls now to investigate the sentencing of Roger Stone. This is the friend of president trump. Who was convicted As a result of the Russia investigation of Wind Congress obstruction Yesterday trump tweeted that the seven to nine year prison term. That was recommended by the federal prosecutors was unjust shortly after Attorney General Bar of did another filing intervened overrode that recommendation. They're asking for a lesser sentence and for prosecutors resigned. Of course the Justice Department saying that had nothing to do with a tweet but Lsu tweeted out speaking of tweets that the DOJ needs to lock up Roger Stone and throw away the key full stop. Was it appropriate. Then for president trump to seemingly asked his attorney general and then tweeting again today congratulating him for intervening in this. It's really important. The Justice Department do their job and anyone who tries to intervene in the process. Success I think is making a mistake. Look Roger Stone was found guilty By all accounts by the jury and it's important to let the justice system uh-huh play out I cannot think of anyone more deserving of seeing justice served than Roger Stone so I would like to see everyone sit back and let this judge make the important important willing look he could receive up to twenty years based on the judicial guidelines. So I think it's the judge's decision to make and no one else's bill it just jumped out to see. I think this is so outrageous on the part of Bill Bill Bar. He has destroyed not just here but even previously this just adds to destroy the integrity the and the independence of the Justice Department I think is worst attorney general since John Mitchell and he sees himself as just a toady of Donald Trump donald trump tweets and bill bar jumps yes in and tries to reverse the the work of career prosecutors in the Justice Department. I think anybody who reveres reveres. The rule of law ought to be very concerned about what Bill Maher Donald Trump together are up to Democrat Bill Press and Republican Alice Stewart. You're thanks so much to.
