They had to go state by state so they had to go. Delaware was the first state rhode island was the last state to ratify and to approve it and there are seven articles of the united states constitution. It wasn't until seventeen. Ninety one that the bill of rights was passed and ratified by all the states.

It is our reason alone that must be placed in control of the government. Our passions must be controlled by it. The constitution spreads power over time and over land makes it hard to change. Things makes it hard to conduct. Quick revolutions you see the founding fathers in this constitution. And this is the best way to defend. Somebody asked me say charlie what conservatives actually believe said. It's very simple. We believe in natural law. We believe in a natural law.

The united states in austria have agreed what they describe as a landmark defense and security partnership that will defend our security interests around the world. I'm not sure who are is but that's what they're saying And so it's going to see the us. The uk and australia or lease astray is going to be provided with technology to build nuclear powered submarines for the time and other very boris johnson was very keen to make sure everybody understood that this was nuclear powered submarines the of a nuclear reactor on there to provide propulsion. But nothing else. So the nuclear weapons on there but Well joe stole the show. I have to say they had a bit of a press conference and joe was in the middle of the street prime minister on the left on boss johnson on the right And stretched enough. Joe didn't say anything prime minister led off. They weren't in person. I should've said Because of prime minister and the debars johnson On the on screen only so after they had both spoken.

Inside the US-Australia Submarine Deal
"The dutch prime minister mark rutta will reportedly offer his uk counterpart. Boris johnson a defense and security cooperation. Deal with the eu. When the leaders meet in downing street later today it follows yesterday's announcement that the uk. The united states and australia had agreed their own defense. Pack called aucas. the deal has angered many. You states with france calling australia's decision to scrap a huge submarine. Deal in favor of eight nuclear powered subs deal with the us establish back. Let's get the latest now from paul rogers international security advisor at open democracy. Paul some very harsh words from paris. Today tell us what happened here. I on the australian deal and why the french are feeling blindsided by it over the australian deal. The australians essentially decided to replace their existing collins class submarines richard come to the end of their useful life with new pout submarines rather than diesel-powered submarines. The previous decision was to gain with france which has quite a good recorder producing diesel-powered submarines. It can actually produce a new pout. Submarines for self. I don't think he's ever exported them considered it. But anyway australia's decided they need to new capelle. Submarines had this deal with the french for the best essentially for the Diesel-powered ones they basically dish that and gone in with the united states with britain as well although the suspicion is that as far as the building of the new submarines consent bush will be done as an australian yard in adelaide. That will be done. Under american supervision with the british relatively small this is partly because britain is producing own new class of astute hunting submarines as well as its missile submarines an in both cases. It has pretty serious problems with developing the reactors rolls royce history. Having great difficulty in getting things right the to another words in america wants a more reliable. So that's the basis of it. The the fringe obviously are pretty furious of this because what was a pretty big contract with a lot of money in. It was basically dish in favor of a basic and anglo american agreement. So that's the background this at beyond that. Of course you have all the issues in the eu and the whole question of how one handles a rapidly growing china which does have increasing military capabilities.

Pacific the deal will cover diplomatic and security cooperation but most significant is the defense end of the pact including australia obtaining its first nuclear powered submarines momentous decision for any nation to acquire this formidable capability but australia is one of our oldest friends kindred nation for australia the agreement goes far beyond existing groupings with america such as the five is security block or the new quad tie up with india and japan.

China Intensifies Hunt for Cryptocurrency Miners in Hiding
"When the history books are written the actual factual mining ban in china will be a key. Part of the crypto story of twenty twenty one. Remember the first rumblings we got about. China targeting crypto in may we sort of brushed off as more bluster and reconfirmation of old policies. At first it was just the banks reinforcing that they weren't allowed to interact with crypto. And so on and so forth but that ultimately changed and when it changed was when the vice premier made a statement saying that they were going to look into a bitcoin mining ban that signaled to all of the local provinces that this was serious and it also signaled that to the local mining operations that we can we saw one of our biggest drawdowns coming off of the rally between december and april and part of that was that minors were actually liquidating their bitcoin and the theorem to try to give themselves mobility to make decisions quickly. Subsequently of course we've seen one of the most significant if not the most significant hash rate migration in bitcoins history. Much of that has been to the benefit of north america. So far but that as we'll see in a minute could change in either case. The blocks will fees. How has a new report out about how provincial governments in china are dealing with the ban in inner mongolia the development and reform commission has hired a contractor to help it monitor for illegal mining operations. This is interesting because there are reports that some chinese bitcoin and the theory of mining operations have quietly even secretly resumed their operations. This partnership with the contractor suggest that the government is going to stay on the case now one interesting nugget from the bidding process is the government's ten bullet list of the areas that it wants to know about which includes the production and development process of crypto mining domestic and international policy stances and regulatory environment over crypto mining. The initial purpose and policy perks that inner mongolia gave to big data and cloud computing enterprises the cost revenue energy consumption and taxation breakdown of crypto mining operations locally the physical distribution breakdown of krypton mining operations locally techniques for differentiating crypto mining operations from other big data and cloud computing projects analysis of mainstream mining hardware and their energy consumption breakdown relevant legal basis for clearing out crypto mining operations the impact of shutting down mining operations on achieving the carbon neutrality goals and long-term regulatory responding mechanisms over crypto mining operations
John Zmirak: George W Bush Equated Ashli Babbit With Jihadists
"John's merrick. What's on your mind. Well i just finished reading the letter of ashley. Abbott's mother responding to george. W bush ashley bavin whose daughter answered george bush's call and joined the us and fought in iraq in our air force and then protested on january six. You know she committed a crime of trespassing. She climbed through someplace. It wasn't supposed to and the capitol. Police shot her dead. No she tried. She tried to climb through but she was murdered. by someone whose name. I guess. We're never going to know you know what maybe general milley can do. He could do us a solid and go behind the back of the Current fake president. And maybe he could get that name to us because he's a stand up guy. He cares about america. She was shot dead by a capital police officer. For no reason she wasn't carrying seven. She wasn't threatening anyone. And here. George w bush. The man who in a sense lured her into the us military. She signed up because of his war on terror. Here he is equating. Ashley babbitt to muhammad atta and all those other filthy jihadi psych psych of ads who attacked our hometown. I think it is for us to establish why we think this is such a despicable thing for the former president to have said it's deeply shameful. He seems to be in bed with whatever you call at the deep state i mean look. His father was cia. His father was as deep state president as it gets. But i really believe w was different from his father. Oh yes he appoints cheney and rumsfeld. But i did not believe because i thought this men's an evangelical christian he's from texas. He doesn't seem to be the kind of guy that would buy into that stuff. But then we see pictures of him and his father schmoozing with the clintons. Now pictures of him. You know hugging a barack and michelle and you begin to wonder where he's coming
"americas" Discussed on Pod Save America
"Voters helped her georgia blue once again on tuesday and say welcome to the show. I the guy. Well i want to. I want to start by thanking you for all the work. You did to turn your blue twice. John were talking a little earlier. About what as horrible as yesterday was for this country how much worse it would have felt if the people who had egged on what happened had been had been rewarded just the day before with more political power says wanna say thank you for all of your work. You're welcome on behalf of the people in georgia. So i think the people you're you're on another crooked media podcast last month when you said your gut feeling was that we were going to win this thing. Why did you feel so good. Then what was your reaction when you found out there. The reverend warnock and jonathan both one. So i was confident. In wyman our organizing to be completely honest i've said before that The demographic shifts in georgia are the fire and organizing is the accelerate. Is the gas that we born born over the fire. You know georgia's going through this rapid massive sort of unique demographic shifts right the demographics demographers political scientists are calling it the reversal of the great migration right great migration nineteen twenties Seventies lack americans fled the south fleeing racialized violence looking for economic opportunities Which is why so many black folks in chicago can trace their roots to mississippi. Black americans in new york and new jersey can trace the roots of the carolinas georgia and folks are moving back south or their children are And it's created these opportunities or different kind of politics in and so we've been watching at And so have the other side in watching these demographics shifts But we also learned about all of this sort of tips tricks in their toolbox if they've been using to suppress the vote and so in addition to the two million dollars that we knocked on the seven million phone calls that we made the four million text messages that we need. We also had forty five hundred volunteers. Who are is in ears watching for voter suppression. We had lawyers lawyers lawyers on deck that were in place in prepared to respond to an easily shenanigans that arose during early voting on election day and quite like people are tired as all the conversations that we were having on the doors. Right folks were his at their president. Told them the drink. Bleach walks pissed off at the governor. Lied about what he knew about coping and particularly egregious to us in georgia. Because everybody knows. The governor's mentioned the three miles away from the cdc headquarters right. And so you know as an organizer were out. Were industries on the doors. And we're talking about the pain that people are experiencing right now and what they can do to stop it and one of those things harmful so it. November joe biden won a narrow victory. But david purdue got more votes than john us off in the other race. The sum total republican candidates got more than the sum total of revenue are the number chronic in. What adjustments did you make to your strategies. And you're organizing to overcome those deficits in such a short period time right so we knocked on about four hundred and five thousand doors having high quality face to face conversations between labor day and the november general election out. We knocked down one point seven million doors in the nine weeks between the november general and the were election so it was a lot of deliberation with public health experts with our board with our staff about going in the doors in going big leaving all fields so that was one of the major adjustments that we made to our program we still will continue to privilege High quality face to face conversations with people decay because we know that it works but also be we. Train our organizers. Listen you had twice. As many years as mass people wanna be hurt right and so we listen to people. It helps inform our messaging It helps inform all of our tactics quite frankly At the core of the work at the new georgia project does is very bold very active research agenda. And so i'm just because we're black and brown does because we're young. People millennials and gen z years automatically. Make us experts in those you that we studied to show ourselves approved so that was one of the adjustments made and then quite frankly i think that even with our like nine months of ab message testing polling focus groups and all that nothing was more powerful than watching mistake flip for the first time in and watching georgia's vote for a democrat for president the first time since nineteen ninety-two nothing is more powerful than hearing a really awful it remakes georgia on my mind And talk about some really good people but some but all contributed to the chorus right that your vote matters that george. Votes matter and that georgia's the opportunity to save our democracy. It's really interesting. What you said about door to door canvassing so we get this right. Is that for most of the general election. You sort of shied away from for the very obvious. Public health reasons picked it up a little bit towards the end and then not that anyone can return with us but it was a much bigger focus in the runoff was was door to door as opposed to phone and text. Is that correct when we saw that there was an additional registration opportunity right so an additional thirty days to add more people to the voter rolls dated being like thirty three thousand young people that registered to vote about fourteen thousand of them were young black georgia's and we registered about seven thousand of those right in thirty days but also i think having someone knocked on. Your door underscores the importance of the opportunity. The importance of the moment that we're in we definitely saw tons of people who are like. I voted already. I've only been blended provide. Thank you and. I don't know if you heard and so again just having an opportunity to one listen Within two also underscore the opportunity. And here's why it matters. I want obviously.

"People and brown people. There's no there's a history of that being the case. However i think it's critically important. That biden in the appropriate order calls the question. We can't just presume mitch mcconnell's obstruction we have to force them to actually obstructive thanks for juries. It's one so that we can create a paper trail of the costs of the republican senate for when we are going to go be trying to defeat republican senators and twenty twenty two. And if you want to make a case if joe biden wants to do this and joe biden is very reticent on the filibuster. That's even as important as joe manchin is. Joe biden is not someone like elizabeth warren or buddha judge or some others who are running for president who are very adamantly opposed to the existence of the filibuster joe biden as close as he came during the campaign. Say he was open to the idea. If mitch mcconnell was obstreperous was his term. now mitch mcconnell. How's it going to be a stripper. So he opened the door wide for it. But let's test the proposition on all of these issues of the things that are very important. That have huge majority support in the american people from the american people. That mitch mcconnell wants to stop. Let's make him stop them. Let's make marco rubio stop these things. Let's make ron johnson south facing the people that we are going to try to defeat and twenty twenty to go on the record blocking population does not presume to that was. Let's not assume they're obstruction and some avoid them. Now when i say do it in the proper. I think there's going to be a real question about what that budget reconciliation. Bill is. How soon do you do it. How important is it to fill in the gaps of the very meagre covert relief bill. That was passed last month. How quickly do you get these checks out that is going to require the in the budget. Reconciliation bill so is that something. That's going to move very early in. Should that move. The house can do things like this right so though they pick whatever you want to do. Hr one i come around to the other thing. That's great senate takes much more time. It's much harder and so it is a real. There's a very curious to see how the order in which biden prioritizes these things and how quickly he wants to play that budget reconciliation card in his presidency. I would go very hard on the john. Lewis voting rights act. I would put it on the floor if i was schumer and just dare mitch. Mcconnell and those republicans if you wanna filibuster like actually filibuster sit on get on the senate floor and just talk about why. You don't wanna expand voting rights. And i don't think that's necessarily going to shame. Republicans but maybe the pressure builds at that point like joe manchin do you want the republicans to filibuster a bill named after john. Lewis about voting rights. That's where we're going to let them filibuster like. I think that you know whether we win or lose on that one i would. I would spend a lot of capital on that. Because i think that you know. We don't pass some of these democracy reforms voting reforms. I get pretty worried about elections in twenty twenty two in two thousand twenty four and two thousand twenty six and beyond. We have redistricting this year. That's going to be tough for us like you know. We know we already saw in georgia right there. They're getting ready to pass a raft of voter restrictions georgia And look there's limited stuff that you can do on the federal level but hr was a good bill. And i think that the democrats should push very very hard for it and make it very very clear whose fault is if it doesn't pass and do everything they can to pass it. I mean this is the center. This is the central issue. Everything flows from it. And when we talk about mitch mcconnell nurturing this lie about a stolen election and we talked about in the context of jacking up turnout in georgia. That's part of it. The longer return reason why all the republicans who definitely knew better allow this line fester is because it creates pretext from war voter suppression. This is gonna happen all across the country and this is the last throes of shrinking white conservative majority in a country by divers growing progressive majority. And we we. We are going to have someone. That's what we can do in the senate off but we gotta call the question. We gotta find out what we gotta talk about it. We gotta make it the defining issue because everything else we care about flows from that right when we come back. We'll have interview with say. Pat america is brought to you by ali pop. All pop is the healthy alternative to soda. It tastes just like the sodas. I grew up with but without the spoonfuls of sugar and artificial ingredients they have delicious nostalgic flavors like vintage cola classic root beer orange squeezed cherry vanilla and strawberry vanilla. I love the vintage coa and the classic gruber. I don't know about you guys. I agree. I like vintage cola. The classic root beer. I like the orange squeeze. Those are the three that i go back to you again. For some reason they only shipped a bunch of strawberry. Vanilla has which is not a flavor. I would've picked out on my own but it is here in the house. And i've been drinking it and like yes. Hey john former like it speaking of deliciousness dodge. This reminds me of an incident that happened in seventh grade. Okay i was over at my friend. Ian boon's house. We were big. Nhlpa ninety four fans and sega genesis. That you that was the season when you could break the glass and make the guy's head bleed remember that i do remember that featured in the film swingers but You know we did about eight hours of straight sega genesis hockey and then we decided rents movies was mom ran out and was gonna get some karate. Kid sequel came back. Put it in me in his mom sister start the film. We're fast forwarding through. What we think is previews for movie called. Lucy had a ball. Turns out to not be previews but a porno. That starts airing in very graphic fashion in front of the entire family. It was the wildest thing that ever happened to seventh grade me. Tommy thanks for telling us about the time you watch porn in middle school with your buddy now. Back to ali pardo speaking of soda transition. John anyway. I like you. I like weaving the ads together. So great story of series wild times at tommy hi. They use functional ingredients that combine the benefits of prebiotics plant fiber and botanical. Support your microbiome and benefit digestive health that absorb segue that just makes sense. Ninety percent of americans consume more than the. Usda's daily recommended added sugar intake.

"For him. Know him and think he is tremendous and the team he put together. It's not just garland lisa. Monica former co is going to be deputy vanita. Gupta is going to be the associated. General and chris and clark's going to be in charge of civil rights as big and this is very not his big to civil rights leaders to placing the justice department. And that's a huge thing. And i think this is a very a very very good team. There's also some reports that could or has been thinking about replacing garland on the dc court of appeals with kettani brown jackson. She is a fifty year old black woman who currently sits on the federal district court in dc and also as someone who has been mentioned as a possible supreme court justice and so she could go to fill merrick arlen seat in the dc circuit on the dc circuit court of appeals. And then. perhaps. If brian retires you could get angie brown jackson as on the supreme court An lvad very young black woman to the supreme court of the united states which would be awesome so a lot of good things came from what just happened in georgia. What else can we expect from democratic senate and where are we still going to face challenges or we're going to face challenges in that the filibuster still exists so to pass most things not nominations not court appointments but most pieces of legislation in there are a few exceptions we talk about. We still need ten republicans and mitch. Mcconnell still has say under that scenario under large portions of the biden agenda and even still we have joe manchin a very conservative democrat. Kirsten cinema mark kelly arizona moderate democrats who have concerns with some of the more progressive elements of the biden agenda. Some of the more important structural reforms like turning into a state or some of those sorts of things. So this is hard. I fifty fifty cents very very challenging. They take a long time to organizers. Pretty intense negotiations between the majority and the minority about how you said how many people are on each committee. And how you set it up and all of that so this is an incredibly narrow path to get things done but it is a path and that would not exist under any scenario if we had not won both of those seats on tuesday. Few points here. Because as you know. Dan i have some concerns about the filibuster and i have for a while. The reason that we can't you might be thinking. Why can't we give her the filibuster like we said we wanted to. Well because joe manchin doesn't wanna get rid of the filibuster fifty one votes to get rid of the filibuster which we have. We have fifty. Democrats have fifty one votes but we do not have fifty one democratic senators. Who want to get rid of the filibuster namely joe manchin. Possibly some others to your. I'm not sure votes right now. I don't know that but like some of them. You could imagine pressuring you can imagine saying the voters of your state are going to punish you if you don't eliminate the filibuster and we're going to have a primary challenge like joe manchin. There's none of that joe. We're not getting another democrat out of west virginia probably in our lifetime. Maybe i'm wrong. I shouldn't say that at least in the next ten years. Let's say or another democratic senator virginia and certainly not another democratic senator out west virginia who is more liberal than joe mansion. Joe manchin doesn't care about your pressure campaigns. He doesn't care about you calling his office and yelling at him he does. He wanna see recently. He's there for a while. And he's just gonna be joe manchin and i hate that you hate that but like that is the reality that we have so the question is. Can we ever get to a point where there's legislation that comes to the floor. That's so important that mcconnell's obstructing so much that we somehow can convince and biweekly. I really mean. Joe biden his administration because again joe. Joe manchin doesn't respond to popular pressure and is somewhat insulated from political pressure. can buy ever convince mansion to change his position on the filibuster. I don't know. I don't know the answer that question the other opportunity we have. Is you mentioned. Most legislation requires sixty votes. There is something called a budget reconciliation. Bill where we can pass that bill with only fifty one votes. What can you put an budget. Reconciliation bill well first of all. You're only allowed one budget reconciliation bill per year. You can stuff whatever you want in that so long as it is about taxing and spending and has to do with actually changing the budget itself. So what can get done within. Budget reconciliation with fifty one votes. The two thousand dollar checks can get done. Democrats can expand eligibility for obamacare subsidies. They can get medicare to negotiate for better prescription drug prices. That way you can actually change the medicare age. The age of eligibility for medicare within budget reconciliation which joe biden because of bernie sanders has promised to bring down five years. I read that you can possibly do a public option within. Budget reconciliation tax hikes for the rich. Anything that has to do with taxes you can do in budget reconciliation which means climate spending investment that has to do with climate. You can do some immigration things within budget that have to do with money but still a lot immigration stuff would actually have to be real legislation and then the things that you can't do our minimum wage immigration guns in. This is the big one. That worries me that i wanted to ask you about is all of these. Democracy voting reforms that we know we need to pass in order to make sure that we can still have free and fair elections again. Like what do we do about. Hr one which we've talked about before. Which is the house. Democracy reform bill. they are going to rename the john. Lewis voting rights act. What do we do about that bill. Does that is that. Is that dead on arrival biden. Try it anyway. What do you think. I don't wanna say dead on arrival but there is not no plausible paths who ten republicans supporting something that helps.

"One hundred eight thousand calls to unregistered voters with new georgia project action fund and and we had five thousand volunteers distributed to local georgia organizing groups on the ground so Thank you to everyone. Who signed up to adopt george ryan. Who helped out in volunteered or donated in any way over the last couple of months. You really made a huge difference so as we said you know democratic turnout drop by less than republican. Turn out what role. Do you think trump played in the the drop republican. Turnout obviously to possibilities here. Republicans stayed home because trump wasn't on the ballot or they stayed home because trump into a greater extent lunatics like. I told them that the election was raped. I think it's more of the former than the latter you think it's more that trump was on about. Yes if republicans are now was sky high. If democrats had been lower than it was we would have been blown away by. How high republican turnout was for this. That like we talked about how high democratic turnout was unprecedented. The also in president is just slightly less unprecedented and therefore they lost and so we had this hope that trump is going to convince all these people not to turn out because the election rigging but they apparently the georgia voters got the winking in the nodding and whence in one turned out. So i think it had more to do with trump not being on the ballot also democrats doing a better job of organizing. They out organized republicans. And so it's more. The democrats won the race in republicans lost it. I think that's very important it as we think about. What's gonna be really interesting because turnout was so high on. Both sides is was this the last election of the trump era or was it the first election of the post trump era. Does it tell us something about how the people are going to stay engage this incredibly high level post trump or is or will we look back and say this massive amount of gauge. What politics was the dominating. Point of discussion in american life was unique to trump. And i think that we're gonna we're gonna test in seattle through throughout twenty twenty one twenty two and it's i think it's a really interesting question about where things are headed so where the campaigns and their messages often were hammered covid relief throughout the campaign especially at the end when mcconnell blocked the two thousand dollar checks biden even focused on this message in his final campaign stop said their election will put an end to the black and washington on the two thousand dollars. Stimulus check if you send senator purdue and leffler back to washington. Those checks will never get there. It's just that simple. The powers literally in your hands or do you think that played. I played a huge role. It is hard to know. In the moment whether it was the checks specifically or the checks were the embodiment of a very effective narrative about republicans. The with all of this. I think is a great credit to jon. Ossoff raphael warnock in their campaigns is trump was the dominating omnipresent figure in the race. He was days before the election. He tried to bully the governor into overturn the results of the presidential election engage in multiple electoral crimes of moral travesties. He was injured twice. He was tweeting about it all the time yet. The senate campaigns ran campaigns. Like we did two thousand eighteen. They pushed trump into the background and brought the republican party and david producing county leffler specifically into the foreground and they ran against the against leffler and purdue as callous corrupt corporatists in the middle of recession. And that's where to be a very powerful message now. Is we think about how this plays out going. Forward to incredibly wealthy senators who engaged insider trading to enrich themselves off. The pandemic are particularly vulnerable. This attack but i think it has. I think some real lessons learned about how we talk about. Republicans not named trump and elections coming. I think it's a there's two sides of the republicans are corrupt message. There's obviously the negative message about republicans and there's the positive message about what you're gonna do. And using the two thousand dollar checks gave democrats the ability to offer voters a tangible benefit to voting for. Yes which is something that we we often forget this end and by the way. It's not just because stacey. Abrams made this point to me in the wilderness. Right when we about sort of some of the more the bigger some of them are bigger progressive ambitious ideas and she said here's the thing you need to be able to deliver for voters so you to propose something that is going to make. Voters lives better but also something that they believe that you can actually get done because if you promise them the moon you can't deliver then they're going to grow more cynical the next time and not and not come out and the two thousand dollar checks is something that the democrats can deliver right like it. It is very obvious that you can just you can pass the bill joe biden. Consigned the bill. You can send the checks. Like voters aren't stupid. They know they know what's possible. And what's not possible. And i think Democrats should remember that when we are campaigning. That it's not sometimes the problems with sometimes we get lost in like tax credit. Speak and we're talking about expanding the. It see you know so. Sometimes we get way too in the weeds and its benefits if people can't really understand and it seemed small and it seems like you know just nibbling around the edges and then sometimes it's like big in vague promises you know like That you make voters that they know that you're not going to deliver. So i think specific policies that you know you can deliver to voters that actually improve their lives incredibly important. That sounds obvious but it doesn't happen enough and it's hard. It's hard to find them. That are very tangible like that. That is very true. But i also think like as much as worn off did a good job sort of calling out the corruption of these two republican senators. I didn't see a tweet an add. Anything from those do candidates where they didn't mention and whereabout healthcare jobs injustice healthcare jobs injustice health. They have three things that they said over and over and over again and then they had specifics backing that up. So i thought that was pretty good. Do you have any other lessons that you think we can draw from this. From this race going forward. I mean there are three lessons as negative message against republicans around a popular economic critique of republicans pushing trump out of the narrative. As much as possible. Is your your point specific populist deliverables in terms of policy and then i think the other thing is they ran big bold campaigns. They did that they were not. They were not bear centrists. They were not embarrassed to be democrats. You see that a lot in a purple state. They ran ads with john. Lewis joe biden. They ran ads with barack obama. They were proud. Democrats who ran big bowl campaigns. They they ran from position of strengthen hope and not fear and i did not have to be that way. You often see it in these these runoff elections. Where you're trying to just win would you expect to be low turnout and a very motivating race. And they've benefited from it. I hope that lots of democrats follow that lead in twenty one and twenty two. I think there's something to learn from raphael warnock and his campaign. I mean we have the first black democratic senator from the south he ran a like you said afraid campaign where he was unafraid to embrace being a democrat.

"It is a that is the absolute tribute to grassroots. That's the only way you find. Those people is through the hardcore work of organizing and it is. It's a tremendous feet. It goes against history in relatively recent history. There have twice been georgia senatorial runoffs. After democrats won the white house in both cases the democrats lost including a democrat incumbent losing because democratic turnout was diminished through complacency etcetera. And this time that didn't happen. Our turn out was not in the ninety percent of november turnout on a runoff election. That happens three or four days after new years. It's unbelievable it's unheard of. It doesn't happen. There's there are no historical examples of it happening. That i've heard someone can prove me wrong but it just it just doesn't happen doesn't happen for so the turnout turn it into being four point. Four million all the prognosticators lot know folks who were on these campaigns part of the state party where people believe that. If turnout was north of four point three million it would be good for the republicans because it meant that they're going to match the democratic turnout and the fact that hit four point. Four million democrats still one. Is i think an even larger testament to the democratic turnout operation. Because we're going to talk about how republican turnout dig sag more than democratic turnout but republicans turned out in this race. They didn't like their turnout. Machine was strong like getting eight percent in the heavy trump districts of their november. Turnout is still very very good for a special election but democrats just did more when point just a few more interesting nuggets here youth turn out and you share of the vote. Went up a biden. One young voters by eleven points in november ossoff warnick won by thirty four points to the share of youth. Voters went out Let the latino share of the vote went up so they did. They did better among the latino voters who showed up ben. They did among latino voters who showed up in the general And then as you mentioned the one hundred and forty thousand voters who voted in january. Who didn't vote in november. Were disproportionately young and people of color So two very heavily democratic groups three reasons. You went race organizing candidate message. Let's with organizing what happened here. And i know you're gonna talk a to Nc about this more but just as a top level a culmination of a decade of work. The did not stop. No one took a day off. They went back to work. The first wednesday in november encamped organizing kept turning people out it was local organizing community organizing and it is what has happened in georgia is the model for how we turn more of this country blue and we have to learn everything there is to learn from the people involved and replicate their model. Because you cannot turn out the vote like that if you start sixty days before the election or even six months before the election or even a year before the election. It is the work that that takes happens in the odd years. It's the work that happens when no one's paying attention and it is the organisers georgia mostly. Black women are heroes. They literally saved their public right here. And i just want to emphasize that point. Because you know there's a lot of people rightfully praising stacey abrams we do it all the time here. But it's it's it's obama used to say this to. He's like sometimes people think. I just like materialized on stage in boston to give that two thousand four convention speech. I think sometimes people think stacey. Abrams just like materialized and twenty eighteen just like suddenly showed up and gave a speech where she You know talked about voter suppression. How brian kemp cost her the election because of depression. And she was a star there then. And that's the first. A lot of people hurt stacey. Abrams right stacey. Abrams worked for ten years on this project. Ten years doing work that nobody wanted to do going. And she said this to you and your interview with her after After november like just going around to people with a powerpoint about why. It's important to invest in georgia. Because the demographics are changing and it's it's the most diverse battleground state in it's the youngest battleground state and if we organize and we register people we can do this and like a lot of the work of organizing the winning. So much of it is not glamorous. It doesn't look like it doesn't put you in the limelight. You don't get a lot of fame from it. You get a lot of rejection. There's a lot of losses. Cc abrahams in aside from when she lost two thousand eighteen. She endured a lot of other losses so to georgia democrat. Sort of the organizers in georgia who've been working on this for the last ten years but they kept at it and so a lot of these places that we look at today. That seem like it's going to be hard to flip or to you. Know whatever like these things don't happen in one cycle and just because you lose cycle doesn't mean that that state or that district should be out of reach for you for the next cycle or the cycle after that like this is the work of organizing takes time and that is why say abrams and an latasha brown and say all of these people longer wire grow like all of these people who've worked so hard in georgia have have finally succeeded because they put him to work for so long look they. They registered seventy thousand voters between november january. Seventy five thousand voters. They registered more than half of them are under thirty five. They started knocking on doors again. That's a difference from the general election. There was in person campaigning And i just wanna give a shout out to everyone who participated in vote. Save america for this especially our team at crooked basically took time off and then just work through thanksgiving and and christmas to get Adopt st george up and running and then everyone who signed up. We had forty one thousand people sign up for adopt georgia to adopt georgia between november and january raised. Four point two million dollars for the get mitch fund for us off and fair fight. Action raised one point six five million dollars for every last vote fund which included black voters matter in the new georgia product..

"Million times It's why we do this. I think the next department of justice We're gonna talk about merck garland and a bit in the f. b. i. Have to go back to taking white nationalism and right wing extremism seriously. Surveilling it going after it. It is a incredibly dangerous threat to this country from within and that needs to be a priority And then you know then. The work of the work of elections in the work of democracy. Right like i. I think that as you said like the odds are that we will face this kind of hate and violence again in the sad truth is it's always been a part of who we are country but you know our friend Ben rhodes pointed this out yesterday. Tweeted there's always two competing stories about america and where country of slavery and civil war and jim crow and horrific racist violence. But we're also the country of the civil rights act and the voting rights act and martin luther king junior john lewis and ultimately i think politics is about us choosing between those competing stories and the story that we chose on tuesday night look very different than wednesdays and it was almost poetic right like donald trump ends the november election by trying to disenfranchise millions of voters specifically suing to throw out ballots majority black areas like detroit and philadelphia in milwaukee. Meanwhile mitch mcconnell's senate majority depends on to georgia senators who have literally profited off the pandemic while denying relief to disproportionately poor and black and brown citizens of georgia. Who are hurting most of them. Kelly leffler runs one of the most racist campaigns in memory against her black opponent. And what happens. On tuesday a multi-racial coalition of whites and latinos and asians and more black voters than have ever voted in any election in any state. Ever turn out to end mitch. Mcconnell's majority by electing a young jewish kid who worked for john lewis and the first black democratic senator from the south who literally preaches for martin. Luther king junior's pulpit and that's america to we have a good clip of Warnock from his victory speech day.

"Because i see that going around a lot and we just got to talk about the twenty fifth amendment amendment of the constitution is provides for linux succession removal of the president. In case the president falls ill or dies or something like that. so what. here's what happens. If if a majority of the cabinet decides that the president is unfit to serve. When the amendment was conceived it could either be because the president has a stroke and is in the hospital and not conscious or because he's donald trump and a fucking lunatic. Take your take your pick. So if a majority of the cabinet including the vice president decides that the president is unfit to serve. They transmit a letter to congress saying so vice president takes power. Then there's then trump gets a move if the president then says no. No i m fit to serve and these people are trying to stage a coup. The president sends a letter to congress. Saying oh i am fit to serve. And then what happens is congress if they're not already convened must reconvene within forty eight hours and then if and then congress basically has to vote to keep the president out of power needs a two thirds. Vote in each house to say yes. Donald trump is unfit to serve. So you're not going to get that vote do out in the house. That's that's that's harder than impeachment because impeachment unity thirds in the senate majority in the house too key to maintain the twenty fifty two thirds in both chambers. Not going to get the only thing here is it also says in the constitution that congress has twenty one days to make that judgment and to take that vote so if the cabinet did this if penta did this nancy pelosi could just stick around for twenty one days before taking the vote and we'd hit the twentieth and that would be that donald trump wouldn't be in power for those days. Mike pence would so you could if you want like go through the cabinet list. Donald trump's cabinet and see There's fifteen of them including the chief of staff gets to be a cabinet member in the administration Obviously mark meadows in voting against him. See if you can find eight votes in the cabinet to you know say the donald trump I was doing it where you were you looking at the just for fun fun game i was just kind of look through it. Like but there's there's not a lot like gina hassle. Do it at ca. Probably steve mnuchin after embarrassed him. Maybe alex as our after he embarrassed him. Yeah maybe but like pompeii. Oh i don't know. Can you imagine if we survive this moment as a country and we stopped the planet from alexander and like a hundred years from now. School kids are learning. Why this guy was president for like eight days at the end to having to explain this moment to them so anyway i mean look. I think what romney said last night is probably correct. Which is that. We the practical effect of all this is going to be that we're going to hold our breath for the next The next thirteen days. We should also say that late. Last night i think four in the morning eastern. The white house did release a statement from donald trump saying pledging an orderly and peaceful transition in saying that he believed on the twentieth. Which don't have that statement. I don't know how much it means. Don't know how fast he basically retract it when he gets back on twitter. But that is where we are as of Let's see ten thirty pacific coast time today on thursday. Donald trump pledging orderly transition on the twentieth christian about long-term. Like what do we do about this violence. What do we do about this extremism. What is joe biden due to try to heal this country. He did speak yesterday. As this was this was happening. I think we have a clip of biden speech. The scenes of chaos at the capital do not reflect a true america. Do not represent who we are what we're saying or a small number of extremists dedicates. The lawlessness. this is not dissent is. Disorder is chaos borders on sedition and it must end. Now where do you think you think about in speech and what do you think of the path ahead for him and trying to piece all this together. His speech was great in some of the things that frustrate a lot of democrats about joe biden. The primary are why he and sometimes that's for sure doesn't primary sometimes but that is why he is. He is the person best suited to this moment. He is someone who approaches things with decency and not anger. His natural instincts is unity in forgiveness. And that is the right temperament for this. He's never someone who's going to throw gasoline on fire. He's going to always try to sort of appeal to the better injury. Even those people have demonstrated no evidence of having angels. He is going to try to do that and he should continue to do that. I think we all have to understand. And i imagine that joe biden does understand this as well as the solution to this problem is not something that happens within the traditional bounce of quote unquote normal politics we are. We are not a tour of red states away from unity. We are not more drinks with mitch mcconnell away from unity this we are not one infrastructure. Bipartisan infrastructure bill. Away from solving this. This problem is endemic to american. Society is something that includes politics my politics that goes much beyond politics and we have to really take a step back all of us right. This is a problem for joe biden in the white house to solve in. Think about how we fix it because our country is coming apart at the seams we have. We had an armed insurrection in the capital by people who believe most of them to their core something that is probably not true and that lie was spread all across this country by a broken miyako system my social media platforms by politicians. Who knew better in none of that is going to get better on its own. We are not fourteen days. Rubbermaid is from normalcy. My we have. There is a lot of work that i don't know that anyone. I certainly don't have the answers to this but it is much bigger than one person sitting in the white house. Starting in two weeks i sort of have a few specific things and then one thing like we need to regulate these social media platforms and not just like wait and hope that like out of the goodness of their heart. You know mark zuckerberg and and And and jack going to suddenly decide to like implement policies that protect people and and and stop the incitement of hate and violence So there needs to be some regulation of these platforms when you more pressure on right-wing media i think there needs to be more competition for right wing media from progressive media..

"Is probably similar but a little different. I view most of those statements as just pure. Cya it's possible. And i'm sure there are no goes i honestly i have no idea what goes on in these people's heads anymore. I just can't. I don't know the. I think we should be appreciative for people who speak out if they do. It sincerely mitt romney legitimate. Did it sincerely george. W bush sincere at this ted cruz statement condemning. The violence did not seem to be dripping with sincerity. Fuck him he didn't condemn the violence. He then he fuck inserted tweeting at beto. Like your dividing people. Your rhetoric is divisive. Fuck ted cruz. Fuck here is this. This is my reaction which is thank you for your statement. Can i get an eye oda of self reflection for how we got to this moment. Because all of the public's mitt romney included bear some responsibility for this. Because i think one of the dangers of this entire situation you erode the tiger you rode the tiger the dangerous situations we make it entirely about trump trump lit the match this started this but all of these republicans for more than a decade been pouring the gas on the ground that led him do it every republican for as far back as we can imagine has been talking talking about fake voter fraud in order to justify disenfranchising. Your opponents voters embarrassments for this fox. News bears responsible for this the social media platforms that have allowed americans to be willingly and knowingly about americans to be radicalized by the conspiracy theories are responsible for this weaponising conspiracy theories and racial animus for political gain was the republican playbook long before donald trump ever showed up. Benghazi is a conspiracy theory. Birther a conspiracy. There they've been doing this forever. And this is where we're gonna hear it and if you're in this situation we'll talk about the center of the twentieth amendment impeachment whereas like we're gonna get trump hands off the wheel and we're gonna be okay. We are deeply fucking mistaken because the forces that gave us trump are getting worse. Not better and look. I mean what's truly insidious about this. Is that most of these. Republican leaders and right wing media figures. Know what they are peddling is ally we set before like few people have more content for republican voters and the republican base than republican politicians. And the right wing media figures who profit off of all this bullshit and every day they wake up and they tell millions of americans these lies and so if you're someone who's a trump voter of your someone watches fox news european fucking h&r in one of these platforms you listen to donald trump. You listen to louie gohmert. Listen to ted cruz. What do you think the world is. What do you think the world is you think the world is a bunch of radical democrats. Who hate you who are dangerous or worse pedophile socialist. They're coming to get you there stealing an election from you. They hate you. They're gonna come into the suburbs and kill you. That's what you hear day after day after day conspiracy after conspiracy and there is no one to tell these people that it is a lie. No one will tell them. It's alive because the republican politicians want their votes and even though they know it's ally they just fucking say it anyway and they keep saying it and you know what good for mitt romney who you're right like he went down this path in two thousand twelve as well but at least like he has since seen seen the danger of this and last night during his speech he made that same point. He's like these are lies that we are telling these voters. We are lying to them. And that is at the core of this that these people are being led to in fox. News fucking fox. News was still lying to them last night. Tucker carlson still last night was telling them that. It was antifa that. Infiltrated this tucker. Carlson was still telling them that they're going to use this infiltration of the capitol to take away your rights. You work at fucking fox news right now and your network is telling people that after after a mob stormed the capital. You can look yourself in the mirror and ask why you're working at fox news if you continue so fucking straight news reporter producer. Anyone who works at that network or any of the fucking contracts that network you know there is such a desire. Politics is narrated and covered by liberal arts majors like us to to sit the whole thing into a world of protagonists and antagonists a hero's journey etc trump is the bad guy and then we're constantly to resolve desperate for some good guys from the other side because that fits the narrative which is why when mitch mcconnell gave his speech before the violence really took off when he gave his speech condemning. What crews in hollywood and accept the election results and all these reporters like this is the most important speech mitch. Mcconnell has ever given bullshit the most important speech mitch. Mcconnell should have given is the one he should have given right after the election when he could have told voters to accept the results. All these were lies they let all of this happened because they thought they could leverage it politically in it almost burned down the capital right. This is not just like an earth and politically. They loss elections it. Almost it brought our government to heal for hours. Yeah i mean eh. You're you're absolutely right like this. This whole thing could have been avoided with a couple of speeches from a couple of republicans the day after the election. The day after the election and mitch mcconnell's let what why why because they wanted to georgia. That's why they thought they needed. They needed the basic site that they could win georgia. Well you lost georgia and you almost yours burned down the us government so guess you miscalculated mitch that you're a vassal and your batta politics. Let's talk about trump's reaction. He spent most of the day angry at mike pence. While this was all going on for not trying to unilaterally overturn the election forum. He refused to approve washington. Dc's requests for national guard troops to help so mike pence and the secretary of defense went around him and approved the request themselves and then put out a statement. The acting secretary defense put out a statement. Saying i've been in touch with mike pence in the congressional leaders about protecting the capital didn't mention donald trump because donald trump was so angry and pissed and happy that this was going on reports that the trump was pleased. This was happening so they went so dumb. Wasn't part of protecting the capital. Because he was pissed he was forced finally by his staff to send a few very tepid tweets and a video where he told the extremists that he loved them but that they should go home and then he tweeted. Like this is what happens when you steal an election. Basically was his tweet. We don't know what that tweet is. Now because it was finally deleted from twitter and then twitter temporarily banned him from twitter and facebook and both platforms have threatened to permanently ban him if he continues to violate the rules. I was prepping this morning. So i can't. I can't keep up with this. But i think facebook now said he's banned indefinitely and he's back on twitter or on facebook facebook and instagram sucker repetitiveness at facebook and instagram instagram. We're going to ban trump for at least until the end of his presidency and possibly longer twitter. It's not entirely clear what is common. He had a twelve hour ban. I think as of yesterday and with by the this will probably be in a different integration. By the time this podcast comes out. But i would not be shocked if twitter.

"Welcome to save america. I'm john favre. I'm dan pfeiffer. So late tuesday night. You and i were texting about how excited we were to talk about georgia today and we're going to do that. Including interview with to one of the organizers whose years of work made the senate victories possible. On tuesday night. But we've been robbed. The joy from those victories by a mob of violent extremists who are encouraged to stage an insurrection against the united states government. By the man who was supposed to be leading it and so that is what we have to talk about i. The congressional certification of the electoral college votes on wednesday should have been a routine event. It usually is but donald trump and well over a hundred. Republicans in congress led by senators. Josh hawley ted. Cruz decided that they would object to the election results. In an effort to overturn the will of the voters. Donald trump also urged his supporters multiple times to descend on washington over the last week. Saying quote be there. It will be wild then on wednesday morning while congress gathered to certify the election trump incited a mob of his supporters outside of the white house of them armed and told them to march towards the capital to quote give are republicans the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country and they did and they clashed with capitol. Police and shots were fired and four people died in the entire united states. Congress along with the vice president either barricaded themselves in offices or evacuated from the capital while trump supporters stormed the building carrying weapons trump flags and confederate flags. Pipebombs were later discovered and detonated at the capital the republican national committee and the democratic national committee. It was the first time the us capital had been breached since the british invaded during the war of eighteen. Twelve except this time. The invaders were extremists. Who had been incited by the president of the united states. So that's where we are. Dan i will. I'll stop there and let you react to what you saw unfold yesterday watching the everything that happened. Yesterday was a mix of emotions. It was incredibly scary right. You and i both worked in that building. We both worked in bill after nine eleven and the idea that people could just walk right in there and take it over with all the scares movement places incredibly scary. It was sad and just a terribly a viewed. What was going to happen. simply with. Just the overly ambitious snake oil salesman trying to Overturn the will of the voters and impotent display authoritarianism as a dark day for democracy. But when you have an armed insurrection. Egged on by the press united states like that is an sad day for democracy and on top of all of that. It was absolutely infuriating so preventable and we. We knew we were headed in this direction for years. Now and all of the various stakeholders republican party in the right wing media at the social media platforms just stood by in washington happening. Ignore the warnings and we ended up criminal and we are so incredibly fortunate for as horrible as yesterday. Wise that it wasn't so much worse there is so much there could have been so much more carnage your could have been. I mean there were bombs there. Were guns like as horrible as it was. It was a fraction of horrible. Could have been a couple of things had gone differently. I also find myself. I was scared at times a lot of times but really really angry When we talked about this monday on mondays pod. And you know like when i thought about the certification process and holly crews like i was i remain enraged at those fucking people but it was like these assholes are going to stretch out the process and then they're going to be voted down. There's no chance they succeed. There's no chance that fuck and pence delivers the victory to donald trump. that donald trump thinks pence. Could've but he can any way like all that was. Just it's fucking upsetting but it's garbage you at the end the pod. We said something like if you're in dc. Be careful. because i did think about the crowds that were coming to. Dc and that worried me more than what was actually going on in in the congress. And i was texting with mutual friends of ours in d. c. Our friend my golly who was like they can have just getting the family out of here on wednesday. Because it's going to be so bad. And i was like oh god that is going to be bad and then we saw this happen. I mean one of the tweet. They're really summed it up for me. shared a lot from someone named ed stern. He said well that escalated steadily for four years. Like the scary thing about it. Though is we. We all knew it was coming. Something like this was eventually going to happen. We were all afraid of it. We've also when say we. Democrats journalists a lot of republicans but never trump republicans like a wide people all over the world. Saw this coming so this kind of thing coming someday and yet we couldn't stop it right there. We were almost powerless to. We didn't try mainly we try well mainly because the only way to have stopped this was to improve impeach this man anytime over the last four years and republicans protected him too. Many republican protected him. It is it is the reason to this day that he remains a threat to this nation because too many members of the republican party too many elected republicans have chosen to protect this man and so the rest of us have to sit here and worry that something like this could happen and we are powerless to do anything about it until he leaves office. And that's what's really that's really awful and by the way it didn't just happen in d. c. the state houses in georgia and kansas in other parts of the country There were trump. mobs there to raffin burger. The secretary of state and georgia had to be escorted out of the state house there to protect him And just you know what happened in. The capitol building was just fucking atrocious. They vandalized offices. They were down on the senate floor. They were in pelosi's office wrote murder. The media on a door and big letters. I mean it was revolting. It was revolting. And my i think my first question is out of many questions like they're thousands of people at the capital. There were twenty-six arrests on capitol grounds on wednesday only twenty six. How did the capitol. Police failed to secure an event that was being attended by the entire united states. Congress the current vice president united states and the next vice president. it's dates. I mean this was like a president and nine supreme court justices short of state of the union. Which is the most closely guarded heavily guarded event in america every year. What the fuck was going on. I mean it was clearly one of the greatest security failures in modern american history since nine eleven worse than nine eleven. Like just it will like. It's nine eleven. If they hit told you nine eleven was going to happen. And you didn't prepare for it right. Yeah and there needs to be an investigation into what happened with kaplowitz. Why did they fail to prepare. Why or some of the cops taking selfies with the protesters their videos that we lack context. So you want to know more about about opening the gates and letting people in. Why did that happen. There needs to be an investigation their accountability and they're likely needs to be changes at the absolute topic. I believe this is your job right. And i like what i worked for the senate minority leader. He was protected by the capitol police. Twenty seven. I been a lot of time with him. A lot of really really good..

"They they were essentially navigating the northern Pacific coasts of what is now modern or what we would consider modern day Japan and Korea, and come Chaka with with boats. So it's really no stretch to imagine that humans. At some point perhaps were able to reach the Americas by boat. Using coastal migration. Here's why it makes sense. Because you could. Bright at the end of the Ice Age there where we're imagining that people were physically walking across the bering strait. Perhaps, they were on boats just previous to the end of that glacial maximum or during the maximum or even after it. Taking boats and following that coast because you'd end up in Alaska, you'd get to British Columbia then down south to Washington to Oregon along the Pacific coast of what is now the United States. And it's pretty incredible that humanity even during an ice age was able to both survive and. Prosper and even migrate. Strange things about the world in in that way to imagine it contiguous coast and I like the point you're making Matt about the watercraft involved because you know these aren't cargo ships. These aren't mega yachts or or schooners or Brigantine pontoons or I'm just naming boat words now. What's up one you like? No frigate frigate yeah. frigging, frigate. These were none of those these these were. Okay Sir Tugboat. Yes. These these were not even tugboats they were. They were small coastal craft, right? Brown water, Navy kind of stuff. They weren't meant to go into the open ocean. They were just kind of tracing along the line of the coast, but if that coast is. Ending. So they're just sort of following thing and it's like a video game where in the you know there is a larger world out there. You have a rough idea of the parts of the map you've seen. But everything else is obscured. You know what? I mean so so you may as well imagined that you are just always on the same coast of the thing you call the land. Who knows if there's anything other than the land and then the water? What is compelling about that to me is what? What. Spurred that movement and you know we discussed we discussed the migration of animals that were used for hunting right for food for the populations as possible reason to just continue down the coast if fish populations may be because it's obvious that those boats were would be used for fishing purposes for catching food. You know I wonder if there was something. This is completely just off top of my head boat I wonder what the thing was that spurred. What whichever group, however, large or small it was to continue down that coast and just to keep going to see what's what's next. I wish I knew I mean necessity. I would imagine possibly but I wonder if it wasn't I wonder who is a spiritual belief or? Something that's deep inside I. Think all of us to just find out will there's something over there. Let's. Let's find out. That's inspiring. You know a especially now as the next big step in space exploration may occur within our lifetimes. One one other thing that may have happened just a environmentally is people may have just been following the recession of the ice depending on where you put them in the timeline people may have just been going further along the coast because they were able to see more of the coast I'm not being dismissive I'm just saying like. The environment appears to change so slowly. that. You might not be fully aware of how far you're migrating because your you know your grandparents. Were miles away here kilometers away for the rest of the world. And then. You two generations later. Still feel like you're by the edge of the ice but the ice itself has moved. So I think we're GONNA take one more quick break, and then we're GONNA get into some new discoveries when we return.

"This being all of this gestures wildly around us. If you knew this would be a year if they just came out and said it will be a year with that. Change Your state of mind and apply that narrowly sports or not but just like imagine if this was a year would that change your feeling and thinking right. Now I feel like I've already told myself that it's going to be a year and I am processing that accordingly. So that's why you have the beard. I mean I'm Kinda like Joe a little bit. I'm all right now. I go go for a walk. I got food. I'm lucky we're fortunate are white collar. Quarantines are not terribly disruptive to the state of our lives psychologically. Yeah of course it's going to be difficult. We have a job at the moment and your family is healthy at the moment. Yeah my family is healthy. At the moment all of those things are positives my daughter to go to college in the fall. She'll figure out something to do. We have no real concerns. I am psychologically goes on for a year. I'm working with a Gra bulk of our society and its ability to function in the millions of people that are going to be distressed in terms of housing and food and employment but so sports end up being I can live without them live but for the last month without watching live sports and other eleven is probably not going to hurt me too badly. I think for me sportswise. I've kind of already come to understand that. We may not see football basketball. You know any of the sports the love Again this year More broadly psychologically. I think I'm taking it day by day week by week month by month because yeah like I I'm doing well. You know I have my job for now. I'm healthy for now. Most of the people I love and care about a healthy for now but Man a year is a long time of your life man. I plan to go visit my parents in March and my parents you know. Seventy three sixty eight live in the South. You know an area where the spread is getting worse I'm really concerned about that. So I you know having to live with that sort of anxiety for year like I probably won't have any choice but that's a really sobering. Thought I don't know how would actually taking on a case by case basis like can I get by without watching you? Know the jets. The jets play the bills in October. Yeah I'll be fine. I know that the expect anything. Not You football this year because we have done to a quarterback situation so. I've already given up on that Year maybe they'll give us another year to recruit pet it. We get a little bit of a recruiting in there. It is weird dislike the things that remain normal or that imply a return to normalcy like a guy. Just transferred from North Dakota State tells you to play In the fall and some people on the message board we're like also like shorts up our linebacking corps and other people are like well that guy's never gonna cry for Lsu like you know as a grad transfer and he's just going to go to the to the draft or they're like places that are firing their coaches and hiring new coaches is just like it just feels like to sort of like purely transactional stuff and I would put the draft in there too. It just feels like it's operating in a it implies the existence of a world that does not exist because it's like you know for a long time and NBA. Free Agency has been more popular articles. Get more views than than stuff about actual games. But it feels dom to have to say this but that stuff doesn't matter if you don't actually play like how interesting are transaction ends.

"To the Americas trucking network then it was nice to to listen a lance before we came in here and hear something different it's something that you and I were talking about that yeah you know there's only so much of this that you can just get beaten over the head with an an honest to god if you don't know to stay home wash your hands don't touch your face and stay at least six feet apart now to groups of ten by now we ain't going to teach it to yeah well in and we're gonna we're gonna talk about extensions if you will of of what this has has caught because I mean this is made me think and I'm sure has you and everybody out there listening about all sorts of things because god knows we had enough time to think right and and I don't mean that yeah I don't mean that in a close man I mean you really do have a lot of time at least you've had a lot of time to be its respective yes minha hail and respective introspective to yeah whatever I mean whatever but but I mean you have nothing but time in many cases because I have been doing what I've been told to do and that is staying at home I've been doing all those things you just alluded to but honest to god I want when it comes on now on T. I just turn it off and that doesn't mean that I don't care and I don't want people to get the wrong impression I just cannot continue to hear the same because it is the same well same only because the number has changed the numbers are challenging but but the bottom line is this the same this is continuing to have to tell the dumbest idea don't know your cry to protect themselves from themselves and I've always said I don't need the government to tell me how to protect me from myself but unfortunately we know now to help us protect ourselves from the idiot then the next Eileen whatever but I still do find a lot of inconsistencies and and I and I don't look I'm not somebody who but the government is issuing orders because they tried to recommend and they see that people don't follow recommend they asked us to do what they thought for us and guess what we did who who who won however some of this stuff to me is a little bit too far well again I go back to the very first thing that when this when this really hit the fan back March twelfth H. yes the very first thing that I saw that said if we go overboard and nothing happens remember that was the whole point now you can talk about civil liberties you can talk about all of that different different sort of thing and how much is too much with regard to where you can and can't go in a free society that's a whole other argument that you can have around a campfire when you're allowed to gather around the campfire you can't do that but at this point I mean all we're doing is reinforcing the simplest message to the stupidest people now what's crazy is the number of people that I would perceive to be somewhat intelligent that aren't paying attention to right and and and and I want to tell you something now this is gonna sound terrible and I wish don't say it I'm saying that on okay now don't so I'm gonna say it I'm gonna say it here's what I think needs is going to need to have some young people are gonna have to die before they really and truly paying attention just because all I've been saying is well you know there was the guy that issued the apology from Milford who was the poster child for stupidity back you know a couple weeks ago in Miami about you know you're not going to tell if I get a corona I get her he's since apologised allegedly understands what he did was reckless but when they came right out I think the big mistake they made a saying that younger people don't manifest they don't it doesn't affect them the same way you still don't know the long terms of facts of fibrosis in the lungs and those sorts of things but the one thing I keep saying is there anybody even know anybody that has this we're start to see more more it was begun in the entertainment business names of people that you know and that you've heard of it now you're starting to see people say yeah my aunt had it right so it's it's it's in it's closing in to a degree but the young people like that I went in to pick up and try to got to take out dinner tonight from a dream now I called down there told me one time I was coming to pick it up they have tape on the floors they have taped arrows right very walking pattern and axes which are six feet apart for you to stand while you wait to check out okay so I wait for the lady in front of me she comes out I go and whatever I'm standing there panting and some dumbass kid he's probably seventeen years old walks up and stands right next to me with his hands both his hands flat on the bar right next to my phone and I'm taking a look I know I don't think he's got it I don't have it the people I'm dealing with don't have it it's not in this building but I'm thinking you just that's not the point of just a candidate as well there's a stupid good friend of mine he's made multiple tracks to home depot he's recently purchased a home and he said they couldn't have it better more any go **** I feel like somebody's always breathing down my neck out there in light like dude get black all I know everybody's laughing at me but I wear this bandanna around my neck so like if I go into a place where there's gonna be some other people that I

"Find an unusual pattern more people died in the Americas then the rest of the world what's not clear is why study originally started started to get final estimates of global deaths from a twenty one virus shows about two hundred thousand people died and confirms most of them were young adults and children just the opposite pattern of seasonal flu which tends to kill people sixty five and older but what was intriguing was the global pattern says loan Simonsson of George Washington University who led the study published in the public library of science journal P. L. O. S. medicine whatever that is what it was the whole of the Americas Simonsson said to NBC news all over the Americas we tend to measure a higher burden in Europe for example the death rate in South America was twenty times that seen in Uruguay some studies have suggested that people with diabetes were far more likely to die during the H. twenty one pandemic but silence and said the pattern doesn't support that a twenty one was first detected in Mexico two thousand nine it was a new version of the flu virus a very distant digested or decedent of U. twenty one flu that caused a deadly twenty or nineteen eighteen pandemic could be Americans have suffered because the virus started there in mutated into something mild or is it spread no systems because Bubba what is it about this country seasonal influenza is bad enough to kill between thirty six hundred forty nine thousand people United States in any year between twenty fifty thousand half a million people a year globally these are just estimates blah blah blah twenty countries what does it say about us a relative term dividends day two thousand nine god where yeah it says it here it is again millionaire kittens good is it to Texas sixty one million Americans during the pandemic killed around twelve thousand systems twelve thousand number we've got to send me this from our from Michigan was very helpful and I appreciate you doing that but probably did not see there was an S. on the Americas the thing twenty thousand of the Americas which would be north central and South America eight eight nine four one tags Joe pags dot com are you freaking out are you not freaking out what's bill our gates is new role at Microsoft if even any content plus what what about what I said earlier about manufacturing we're hearing that the new iPhone what would be the iPhone twelve I guess there's the wrong about this but you can also talk about making the nine six nine to go to ten and now forty understand they're they're looking at doing the twelve which of course the eleven is out right now but they're also looking at possibly doing the nine which is kind of interesting but all this might be set back because a lot of the parts in these phones are being made in China and it's just again brings me back to we've got Austin Texas just up the road here which is where the the what is it the I mac pro the I book by somebody's being built right there just a laptop in his laptop the sixty that version for apple's being built up the road start building them here what do you have to build them somewhere where you have no idea how bad this pandemic is so I think that's a that's a simple solution you start building a closer to home and realize that the facilities have been checked out by our government the CDC the whatever you teach us what we have to do and make sure it's cool thing building here we cannot know for sure that there is nobody who is infected in China that a better making that that they're making this product so make it here this could be the I guess the silver lining around the cloud for for employment here for your wages for manufacturing.

"In addition to election rule reforms porter. Gale would like to see changes to the rules around governing. So congress makes its own rules for how it functions and over time these rules customs and practices have been set in place to give an enormous amount of power to the party that controls that chamber and right now, it's the Republicans that are controlling it. But what's happened in? And this is sort of collusion in a way is when the other party takes over. They do it the same way pretty much. So we propose moving away from partisan control of the day to day legislating in congress and also, of course, in state, legislatures as well, the third leg of their reform agenda is about money in politics. But their analysis led them to a different conclusion than. Than many reformers where we differ with so many people champing these reforms is that we don't believe that money in politics is the core issue. Ultimately, the problem is really this nature of competition that leads to this partisanship. And that's not a money issue per se. That's a structural issue. If you take money out of politics without changing the rules of the game. You'll simply make it cheaper. For those using the existing system to get the self interested results that they want without changing the incentives to actually deliver solutions for the American people. Having said that we do believe that there are benefits to increasing the power of smaller donors, and so the reforms that we have suggested are primarily focused on increasing the power of. Small smaller donors, for instance, having the government it self match donations from small donors. We should know that most of the ideas Gail importer are presenting here are not all that novel. If you follow election reform, even a little bit, even we poked into a lot of them couple years ago in an episode called ten ideas to make politics, less rotten. I guess it's one measure of how successful and dominant political duopoly is that plenty of seemingly sensible people have plenty of seemingly sensible reform ideas that for the most part gained very little traction. It is definitely challenging this is a ground game. We're not going to be able to do this in a in a year or one election cycle because the resources that the current dope. Louis half to deploy to play their game are substantial despite the rather depressing, or at least sobering picture that you paint of the. Political industry throughout the report, you express quite a bit of optimism. And I want to know why or how because. I don't see the avenue. I guess for optimism. Well, I do think we have a basic optimism. We have no sense that it will be easy to change the rules of this game for a whole variety of reasons. But the good news is we've had some progress. We've got some nonpartisan primary states now, including California, you know, we've got rank choice voting in. Maine. I think what seems to be building in America is a growing appetite and a growing recognition that this isn't working for our country. And I think the younger generation millennials are particularly outraged and concerned and open to all kinds of new ideas. But I think it's going to take time. The most exciting strategy in this area that we champion is a strategy put forth. By the centrist project and full disclosure on the board of the centrist project. It's now actually called unite America. And this is the Senate fulcrum strategy. So here's the idea, let's elect five centrist problem solving oriented US senators who at that number five would likely deny either party an outright majority in the Senate, which would make those five senators the most powerful single. Coalition in Washington DC able to serve as a bridge between the two parties or to align with one party or the other depending on the issue in.
