"american" Discussed on American Scandal

"America was having a difficult time in the 70s. The social unrest that began in the 60s morphed from flower power to street riots. There was the failure of Vietnam, the shameful and criminal actions of a president in an economy suffering from stagnation, unemployment, and inflation, the country was on edge, and some felt it personally. The new podcast American hostage explores this moment. Set an Indianapolis in 1977, American hostage is a suspenseful true story, starring John Hamm as Fred heckman, a beloved local radio reporter, who is forced into the middle of a life or death crisis when a hostage taker, Tony caritas, demands to be interviewed live on heckman's radio program. And as a result of the interview, caritas gradually becomes a media sensation and an unexpected national hero during a nail biting 63 hour police standoff. You're about to hear a preview of American hostage. While you're listening, follow American hostage wherever you get your podcasts, or you can binge the entire season right now on Amazon music or wandering plus. The 7 second delay for live television was introduced in 1975 by NBC so that Richard Pryor could host Saturday Night Live without the network getting fined for all of his obscenities.

"These archeological digs helped establish the Chinese American history that had gone hidden for a long time before the dig. Now there's an exhibit at the Pacific grove museum of national history on the Chinese fishing village. There are also signposts installed by the cities of Pacific grove and Monterey on the coastal recreation trail to commemorate the Chinese fishing history. Let's move on to the shrimping industry, so we're going to focus on the shrimping practices in Louisiana today. And again, we go more in depth on the Filipino American settlers in Louisiana in season one episode 5, but let's go over a brief history, way back in 1763, Filipino sailors and indentured servants escaped Spanish galleons and made their way to Louisiana. The documentation of the all Filipino settlement at saint malo is dated to around 1883. In a few small villages and most notably the permanent settlement of saint malo, Filipino Fischer set up shrimping practices that became widely used, especially the Louisiana shrimp drying industry. These first Filipino Americans pioneered the dried shrimp industry. Now let's talk about the Vietnamese and Vietnamese American fishermen in southeast Louisiana. Following the fall of Saigon in 1975, Vietnamese refugees were coming to America and settling where they could. And one place that became fairly common was New Orleans. Refugees started to find work in the Louisiana commercial fishing industry, and many refugees had previous fishing experience in Vietnam, so it was an easier transition in some ways. As we covered in past episodes, Vietnamese refugees face racism and mistrust in a lot of areas they settled in. And Louisiana was no exception. Due to language barriers, many Vietnamese fishers didn't trust banks and insurance companies, or they just didn't have access to either. Along with that, societally, there was a lot of hate. And in the mid 1980s, it was common for Vietnamese fishermen to face harassment from white fishermen. These white fishermen generally felt that the Vietnamese refugees were stealing jobs from locals. As we covered in episode 41 on the seadrift conflict, Ku Klux Klan chapters even became involved across the Gulf of Mexico. Now, the shrimping industry itself was a bit cutthroat during the 1980s, each boat and crew were trying to make the highest yields and find the best area to catch shrimp in. They were also focused on processing their catch quickly and getting back out onto open water as fast as possible to continue catching shrimp. The Gulf of Mexico became pretty crowded and Vietnamese fishermen trying to make a living were seen as competition and a threat to American values. Even with all of the adversity, eventually things calmed down and Vietnamese American shrimpers and Fisher's found some stability. It was after Hurricane Katrina and Rita in 2005 and the BP deepwater horizon oil spill in 2010 that it became obvious politicians and policymakers were ignoring and sometimes openly rejecting the Vietnamese American community. In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina and then Rita, officials ended up creating racist and classist policies that negatively affected people of color's communities. The road home program made it difficult to secure housing and there were zoning laws that cut off basic infrastructure and clean water for thousands of POC in Louisiana. Many Vietnamese American fishers were displaced and weren't given help. And policymakers stated reasons like the Vietnamese community, being resilient and experienced with disaster. I know. You know what? They've come from a war torn area. And barely survived. Right, but coming over here. Look at, look at how well you're doing now. Yes. You're able to rebuild so fast that we don't need to help you. Pick yourself up by your bootstraps. Yeah. Another big thing was when mayor C ray nagin mandated the opening of the chef mentor landfill, which is just two miles from village de l'est Vietnamese where many Fisher's resided..

Except <Speech_Female> for the fact that <Speech_Female> these were <SpeakerChange> shots of <Speech_Male> nighttime. <Speech_Male> Yeah. <Speech_Male> And now rice <Speech_Male> patty has just <Speech_Male> you understand. <Speech_Male> They're <Speech_Male> conical straw hats <Speech_Male> that are typically <Speech_Male> used in the <Speech_Female> fields. Yes. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> It's a <Speech_Male> lot to walk <Speech_Male> out of the sun. <Speech_Male> I'm sure it's also <Speech_Male> good for rain, <Speech_Male> maybe to a certain <Speech_Male> extent, right? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> But it's not <Speech_Male> like you'd necessarily <Speech_Male> wear <SpeakerChange> them <Speech_Male> a lot at night. <Speech_Male> We actually looked up <Speech_Male> photos of Saigon, <Speech_Male> and we're <Speech_Male> like, <SpeakerChange> hey, I don't <Speech_Female> see that many rosemary <Speech_Female> has. Right. <Speech_Female> And so <Speech_Female> the <Speech_Female> return to Vietnam <Speech_Female> later on in the movie, <Speech_Female> it's supposed to be <Speech_Female> modern Vietnam. <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> And in <Speech_Female> modern Vietnam. <Speech_Female> I mean, <Speech_Female> there were <Speech_Female> definitely less <Speech_Female> rice paddy hats in <Silence> the modern <SpeakerChange> shots of Vietnam. <Speech_Female> But <Speech_Female> <Silence> the thing that irked <Speech_Female> me the most was <Speech_Female> probably the <Speech_Female> nighttime shots. <Speech_Female> Yeah. Where there <Speech_Female> were some people with rice paddy <Silence> hats, and it was <SpeakerChange> kind of like. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> I would say that this <Speech_Male> isn't necessarily <Speech_Male> that the creative team <Speech_Male> was not Asian, <Speech_Male> but more of <Speech_Male> it's an <Speech_Male> American made. <Speech_Male> Yes. <Speech_Male> But forcing <Speech_Male> a romance, not just <Speech_Male> in this, but actually <Speech_Male> in snake eyes <Speech_Male> as well. When you <Silence> think about it, forcing <Speech_Male> romances, <Speech_Male> a very <Speech_Male> genuinely <Speech_Male> American thing I <Speech_Male> feel <Speech_Male> when it <Speech_Male> sometimes doesn't <Speech_Male> feel <Speech_Female> logical. <SpeakerChange> Right. <Speech_Female> So. <Speech_Female> Right. <Speech_Female> There doesn't always need <Speech_Female> to be a love aspect <Speech_Female> to a story. <Speech_Female> And especially <Speech_Female> for me, <Speech_Female> in an action <Speech_Female> film, I'm not <Speech_Female> watching it for <Speech_Female> the love. <Speech_Female> In fact, <Speech_Female> I don't really want <Speech_Female> my character to fall <Speech_Female> in love, especially <Speech_Female> not with or <Speech_Female> even have <Silence> sort of <SpeakerChange> a <Speech_Female> romance <Speech_Female> kind of <Speech_Male> side story <Speech_Female> that's <Speech_Female> not necessarily <Silence> <SpeakerChange> necessary. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Female> Anyway, anyways, <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> overall <Speech_Female> well, we enjoyed <Speech_Female> it overall. I <Speech_Female> don't know if I <Speech_Female> would say it's a must <Speech_Female> see, but <Speech_Female> if you're looking for <Speech_Female> an action film, <Speech_Female> because sometimes <Speech_Female> it's fun to just have <Speech_Female> dumb action <Speech_Female> film. <Speech_Female> Both were fun. <Speech_Female> Yeah. <SpeakerChange> And <Speech_Male> just a fun <Speech_Male> little romp. I'd say <Speech_Female> protege is a smarter <Speech_Female> action film. Yes. <Speech_Female> I would say <Speech_Female> protege. <Speech_Female> I think protege <Speech_Female> got more laughs <Speech_Female> out of me. Yeah. <Speech_Female> Yeah, <SpeakerChange> with <Speech_Male> humor. <Speech_Male> Yeah, most of all, <Speech_Male> though, fun to see <Speech_Male> more Asian Pacific. <Speech_Male> Yes.

No. <Speech_Male> Asians. <Speech_Male> So <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> it's not a bad thing to have <Speech_Female> more movies like this. <Speech_Female> And it opens <Speech_Female> the door <Speech_Female> for some <Speech_Female> more Asian <Silence> lead creative <Speech_Female> films <Speech_Female> of the variety <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> and so we can just get <Speech_Female> more <Speech_Female> representation. <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> Absolutely. <Speech_Female> And more diversity. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Telephony_Male> <Speech_Male>

"He steadily rising and has been featured on NME's 2020 essential new artist list, along with being included on the 2020 ones to watch list. We also mentioned her before, but ravina is another musician making a splash in R&B. Her pop R&B soul and jazz sound has garnered a strong following online. She was actually featured in ModCloth say it louder campaign, which aimed to celebrate individuality and strong women in music. In March 2019, she co headlined the Java jazz festival in Jakarta Indonesia with her and toto. She hopes to make space for South Asian Americans since south Asians aren't often seen in mainstream American music. Not only does she write her songs, she's also her own creative director and ravina is actually directed several of her own music videos where she focused on her Indian heritage and the quote rich interiority of women of color like herself. She states that mixing her Indian roots with new narratives is her life's work. After the release of her 2018 single temptation, she said on Instagram, quote, growing up, South Asian culture and queer culture felt like oil and water, something that just simply couldn't mix. I'm pretty sure I liked girls before I liked boys, but it took me until this year in my 20s to be able to verbalize and know in my heart that this is one of my truths. I hope that for a little Brown girls in the future, their queerness will feel nothing short of completely 100% mundane and normal. It's great to see some progress for people of Asian descent in the R&B scene. Of course, 88 rising an American multinational music company that represents mainly Asian artists is gaining traction. Most recently, they put together the soundtrack for Shang-Chi and the legend of ten rings. They're not innocent and have definitely misstepped, but their mission is to elevate AAPI voices. So we hope they continue to open the door to many more AAPI artists. And before we move on, we want to shout out the joy ruckus club for their work. Their festival covers all genres of music, and they try to give voice to so many of the AAPI community from small artists to big KPop stages. If you go back to episode 46 of season one, you can listen to our special episode where we got to participate in the joy ruckus club festival. There's obviously some room for growth..

"Basically it's an award the recording industry association for America gives to artists based on the number of albums or singles sold. And 5 of Bruno Mars singles have sold 10 million or more units. Wow. Wow. That's a lot. This is crazy. And now on to the more recent Asian artists that made history in the American music industry, Joji. George kusunoki Miller was born in Osaka Japan and is of Japanese Australian descent. He may not be technically Asian American, but he moved to the U.S. at 18 and markets his music in America. He started off as a comedy YouTuber and created content under the name filthy Frank. And he also released comedy music under the name pink guy. He eventually stopped posting under both personas in 2017 to focus on more serious music. Under the name, Joji. His first album in tongues did well, but it was his second album ballads one released in 2018 that reached number one on billboard's R&B's, hip hop albums chart. He's the first Asian born artist to ever reach the number one spot on the billboard R&B hip hop albums chart. Wow. That's great. Yeah. I want to know why he called himself filthy Frank. Is it because he didn't bathe? Oh my God. Family friendly podcast. Yep. So let's talk about her. We've mentioned her a few times in past episodes, especially with all of her recent accomplishments and Grammy wins. But we haven't gone into a ton of detail. Born Gabrielle sarmiento Wilson, her stands for having everything revealed. She was born in Vallejo, California to a filipina mother and an African American father. She was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and started performing as Gabby Wilson at ten years old.

"R&B was created by black Americans in the 1940s and its derived from gospel jazz folk and traditional blues music. The term was actually first used to describe quite a few different popular African American genres of music. Old R&B utilized electric guitars, double bass piano and drum sets, and the earliest stars like James Brown, Fats Domino and Little Richard were categorized as R&B and rock and roll artists. In the 1950s and 60s because of racism and segregation, white artists played blues based pop music were rock and roll artists, whereas black artists were categorized as R&B artists. Then, R&B diverged from white rock and R&B music started sound more similar to soul music. From there, R&B continued to change and in the 1970s, syncopated rhythms became more common. The 70s also brought the development of funk and disco music, which was formed from the addition of other instrumentation and rhythms to R&B. In more recent decades, R&B is now more often smooth R&B you'll hear a lot of keyboard driven songs, unlike old R&B, which was way more guitar heavy. The utilization of electronic keyboards synthesizers, software loops, and drum machines is common in R&B music today. It's also pretty common for R&B music to incorporate hip hop and rap artists into songs. Contemporary R&B is definitely different from old R&B. Now you may be wondering why we're talking about R&B on an Asian American history podcast and the reason for that is there are actually a lot of Asian American artists within the contemporary R&B genre. From keshi to ravina to Jeanne I go to her, there are a ton of up and coming Asian American R&B artists. Of course, who can say if these artists will reach the heights of other American artists, but it's cool to see so many varied Asian faces within a genre of music. Before getting into modern artists, let's talk about one band that was pretty commercially successful. Hiroshima. They were a Grammy nominated fusion band that incorporated traditional Japanese instruments with jazz, R&B, pop, and Latin music. They didn't create specifically R&B music, but they were focused on creating a band that would more proudly represent Asian Americans. They once stated they wanted to show Asian Americans were, quote, real people with really, real lives. Hiroshima formed back in 1974 and they've sold over 4 million albums around the world. The band's leader Dan kirim oto grew up in East Los Angeles and attended California state university Long Beach and led its Asian American studies department. He formed the band after meeting June kimoto, who played the koto, which is a traditional Japanese stringed instrument. They are still together and the members are currently Dan kurimoto, June current moto, Danny Yamamoto, chemo cornwell and Dan Cortez..

Trend has begun. Yeah. Michelle Lee is capitalizing off of that. And I believe donate, I have to double check, but I think she's donating some of the proceeds from various groups. We'll find the link and send it because it's cool to have a shirt that hashtag variation. Yeah. And also to make something good out of something that was kind of insane. Yeah. Making lemonade. Yeah. Yeah. So let's switch to some good news. Because we deserve that, don't we? Yeah. Yeah. American girls and we're talking about the very popular dolls. Not a guilty pleasure. I had two daughters, so I know exactly what they are. In the past, this line of dolls has not always been praised for their diversity. Nope. For the first time ever, their girl of the year doll is Chinese American. Careen tan, a Chinese American skier. In the press release, they stated, quote, we created karine to be or corinne. I don't know. Corinne trencher. It sounds cool saying it that way. Yeah. Okay, we created Korean to be a positive role model. Our fans can look up to and learn from as we all work toward a world where everyone is treated fairly and with respect. There have been a few other Asian American dolls created in the past and maybe we'll do segment on those ones, including Jess, the biracial Japanese American girl of the year doll in 2006, which, wow, 15 years between. Dolls of Asian descent. That's big. Yeah. But corinne marks the first Chinese American girl of the year doll, which is pretty cool. They're also working with author Wendy WAN Shang to create two books on the character. It's all about feeling seen and normalizing Asian Pacific Americans in this country..

"Yeah, I actually recently read that the Filipino American community is the first where immigrants kids are getting less education than the parents coming over. Which is shocking. That doesn't happen with very many ethnic communities. No. Definitely not. Yeah, so what else is going on? What else are you excited about? The Olympics. Oh my God. The Olympics are coming. I feel when we lived literally, it felt like we just had the Olympics. And the Summer Olympics that had been laid a year, we just had them. But now we're just a few months away from the Winter Olympics, which is my favorite. I gotta admit, I love the Winter Olympics, probably because of ice hockey. Yeah. Any ice sports? I feel like skeletons. So fun. Yeah. Speed skating. Yes. Short and long track. Yes. I don't understand this, but I get really bored watching track and field when it's really long distance. Yes. I get bored watching swimming when it's really long distances. I can watch the long track speed skating, but it's like 6 see the longest 30 laps ago. Yeah. And it still exciting. I wonder if it has something to do with the speed at which they're skating. I know, runners are fast, but you just can't reach the same speeds. And there's something about speed skating that's so exciting. I think so. And it can change so quickly. So fast. So fast. I mean, I feel like this is probably more short track. But one little stumble and a wipeout and suddenly fourth place is first place and they're winning. It's crazy. Short track speed skating. It's like the race car driving. One little wipeout and everything is changing. It's very fun. I love it. Yeah. One of the reasons I like the Winter Olympics better is because we see a lot more Asian American representation. Yeah, for sure..

"You're listening to Asian American history one O one, a podcast about Asian American history from generally known historical happenings to the deeper cuts that we don't hear about in school, where your host Jen and Ted, the daughter and father team. Welcome to episode 63. How's it going? Good. Although this will come out later, I just finished a pottery class, which was very fun. And I have enough pieces to give to everyone. Yeah, nice. To me, that is one of the best things about giving gifts. If you can make it yourself in some way, shape or form. Yeah, and you know some of my pieces might be a little bit ugly, but who cares? You're gonna get it anyways. Well, you know, what they lack in aesthetic beauty. Right, right. They have in terms of love. Yes. As the key ingredient percent I had no hate while I was throwing. Not at all. I wasn't frustrated at all. Also quick pieces. I'm a little cold this morning. Yeah, it's cold. You know? People are gonna laugh at us 'cause we are in Southern California. But even Southern California can get cold, and I know we are in a beach city, but it is 39° here. This is the first morning that it is broken below 40. I mean, it is also because we are in a beach city. I mean, we're right by we get the beach breeze and whatnot. Yeah. And I know that our climate is very mild here, but it's cold. And our House is insulated fairly okay, except not because it gets really cold. It's really cold. And it keeps all the cold in. So even when the outside warms up our House stays for freezing. Yeah, that's actually the insulation. Right. Because basically we keep that cold, hold on to it, whether it's summer or winter. And so I have a nice little space heater in my room. And so when I wake up in the morning, my room stays nice and warm and then I leave and it's so cold. Yeah, I think we have space heaters in every room. Yep. But we also use the whole house heater every now and then. It's just, you know, the house is kind of big. And so to do that, with only one or two people in the house, it just doesn't seem right. But I don't know if someone probably has a paper on this on which is better in terms of energy savings. Is it better to just use the whole house heater? Right. Or is it better to use a space here? And at what point is it better? Because maybe you're moving from room to room, in which case it makes no sense to have a space heater. Yeah, like it makes sense to have a space heater when I'm sleeping. I turn it on and keep my room up and then I turn it off and then go to sleep and then when I wake up in the morning, I turn it back on. Yeah. Well, if anyone has some heating, then please let us know. Or maybe someone out there is an HVAC specialist and knows the science behind whether it's better to have the whole house heater on or a space heater. Yeah. Anyways, did you see the news on how The White House announced a new initiative to disaggregate the data under the Asian umbrella term? I mean, it's cool because this initiative on Asian Americans native a Hawaiians and Pacific islanders will really do what we've been saying all along. Treat Asian Pacific Americans as something more than a monolith..

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.

"Listen when history looks back on this decision. How do you think it will be written histories written by the winners so largely depends on on? Who's writing the history? I was struck Peggy by the cynicism of the answer. It's a correct answer. But he's the attorney general he didn't make the case that he was upholding the rule of law. He was almost admitting that. 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? So it's largely depends on whose writing the history but I think a fair history would say it was. It was a good decision because it it upheld the rule of law it help at it upheld the standards of the Department of Justice and Undid. What was an injustice totally our contacts? Okay so let's get on with my story of the day. A glimpse of postponed pandemic politics is from our hunt. An opinion contributor at the hill this was written on. May Have Two thousand twenty. The twenty presidential election will be affected more by how the pandemic plays out than the impeachment of Donald Trump. Joe Biden's age or any other issue. The political impact will extend beyond November in shape American politics for the CBO future with the economic and social fabric of shake shaken more than any time since the great depression or World War. Two politics will change dramatically. Probably even more polarized perhaps more radicalized than yesterday. America's current political status quo isn't likely to remain intact after the wave of versity difficulty that we're likely to see as the Kobe. Nineteen pandemic runs. Its Course Rights Robert Mary a prominent journalist and historian Mary writing in the American conservative suggest. A more Populus politics tilting right. Conversely the little laugh says this offer are more robust big government and this is something that if you watched the hill. I'm their youtube channel rising off especially from crystal ball and soccer. 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. Should go and there was an article that I brought back from axios that surveyed. Republicans on who they would consider for the twenty twenty four presidential election. The top choice was Mike Patents. Forty percent thousand junior was next Nikki. Haley about trump was next America Rubio. Mike pompeo which that's surprising but that's at thirteen percent Greg Abbott Rick Scott Rhonda Santa's than this Tim Sky One of the person.

"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.

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.
