But Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is closing in on securing enough electoral votes to win after news outlets projected him winning two key states in the Midwest, Wisconsin and Michigan. According to The Associated Press. By then, has now secured 264 electoral votes. He will reach the needed 270 if he wins any of the four undecided races Nevada, where he has a slim lead of less than 8000 votes, Georgia, where Trump is winning by 18,000 votes, but many tens of thousands of votes have yet to be counted. North Carolina, where Trump is leading by 77,000 votes, or Pennsylvania, where Trump is up by 165,000. But many absentee ballots have still not been counted. Biden briefly spoke on Wednesday. I'm not here to declare that we've won. But I am here to report When the count is finished. We believe we will be the winners. President Trump made multiple false claims on Wednesday, suggesting Democrats or stealing the election. At one point, Trump rode on Twitter. He was claiming for electoral vote purposes. The states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan. Even his votes are still being counted. The Trump campaign also filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania. Michigan and Georgia and has requested a recount in Wisconsin. On Wednesday, Wisconsin's chief elections official, Megan Wolf, said Trump's claims of electoral fraud are an insult to election workers. Anybody's welcome to watch that process some of the places even why have streamed other tally last night?

Cellar Door Underground Bar
"We hear from reporter Amy Goodman about cellar door bar in London than we once an underground public blue amy. Welcome to milk street. Thank you Chris. So this is story about underground bars in London. That are in abandoned. Victorian bathrooms among other things. So let's start with the Victorian London. Where were these bathrooms? What were they like? These bathrooms were built all over London sometime after eighteen fifty and it came about because in the mid nineteenth century of torrens used water closets. But there wasn't anything to us out in public so these were designed to be very discreet. They were black wrought iron which was typical of the era with steps going underground. Decelerate the bathrooms from civil society. So this particular place cellar door where is it? How do you access it just gives us a visual image of going to the cellar door? The cellar door is a place that you could easily walk past. It's just at the edge of the theater. District sort of bordering covent garden and the Strand. There's a pink flashing neon sign outside that says cellar door and just below that pink. Neon sign is a set of stairs going down on the diagonal taking into a subterranean bar. There's a red velvet curtain and I was immediately greeted by one of the CO owners Gordon Anderson. Goo Good evening. Welcome to the seller. Do we are a London? Premiered Cavalry and villas cocteau on a short tour? This won't take long. Will it so a couple of steps into the main Bob? We've sort of we say nineteen thirties. Berlin meets New York die. Boss staff are all kisses out in bow ties and jackets? We serve very much. Traditional cocktails we sell snuff suffers eight tobacco substitute that is ingested through the nose and get some very funny looks when we serve it We have barstools in shape lips. We'll have barstools shapes of tongues. Everything slightly different here to a normal par. Did he talk about the process from the beginning having found this place bidding on it coming up with plans for renovating it? It definitely went through a process of adaptation now in terms of the way the building was transformed. There was a lot to figure out. It was a gents toilet until about fifteen years ago. When the legislation fool disabilities changed. And because it's a basement people. A tests could not gain access to the toilet so the council moved that priority on providing public toilets to street level and so these basement toilets. Alzati closing so it was an asset for the council but obviously nobody wanted a sunken basement toilets until particularly my business partner. Paul Kohler came along. He he used to pass. It was boarded up covered in graffiti and looking very sore so he contacted the council and asked for permission to come have a look As soon as we walked in and saw this place complete with his white tiled walls issue rhinos toilets and Genesis Office. I knew and he knew we both wanted to do something here. So the big challenge is taking very small space and making the most of it. Exactly how did they do that? They used the magic of mirrors. So he'll be on inside. The main. We saw fifty four square meters surrounded by Murs. Make kids seem bigger. Some of the mirrors a faceted. So you don't see a direct image. You see a reflected image of a reflection if accents we have all sorts of low level lighting colored lighting lights which sent the floor because Haswell the irrational trough used to be. It's a little bit about smoke and mirrors. It's sort of like being in Vegas. You could easily lose track of time and have no idea what day it is so the obvious question is. Is there a public restroom in the cellar door now? They've gotten rid of the restroom determined into a pub so do they actually have a bathroom there. Well that's the best part of this far. Chris the bathrooms they had been on a trip. Paul Gordon to New York where they went into a bar that had this optical illusion on the bathroom door once inside the bathroom you could see outside the door so if you were inside the bathroom and didn't know you would think that everyone could see you. People who've not been to the BOB before get very nervous. People tend to crunch to cover whatever might be on show. We've had Arctic Asians when people are drunk. They think they've locked the door but they haven't so so the first time is is kind of a shock. So is this now spread throughout London. And there's hundreds and hundreds of these places being leased out. There aren't hundreds and hundreds of these former public lose being transformed because again these spaces are so tiny and if the layout isn't right it just doesn't work for anything but it's enough of a trend that we're definitely seeing more than a dozen of these around. The country being turned into interesting spaces. There's an art gallery for example. There's a members club. There's a hair salon you name it I think. In general the whole notion of repurposing vacant spaces has taken hold in the UK and more specifically with the use of former underground carriages from the London Tube. Many of these spaces are being used for restaurants for shops for startups workspaces. And actually lend themselves quite well. Because there's built in seating so a lot of this really works and I also think this speaks very much to the British spirit of make-do-and-mend. Let's not just throw something out because it doesn't work. Let's actually turn this into something else. That works repurposing. Building is actually a good idea from an environmental perspective. Also entrepreneurs are always trying to find something different for the public to do. The public are who is trying to find something different to do in. This age of social media can't wait so your friends what you found that they have heard

Democrats have seized control of the house of representatives flipping more than two dozen seats. This gives Democrats subpoena power for the first time since President Trump was elected two years ago, while the Democrats will control the House Republicans picked up two more seats in the Senate on the state level. Democrats picked up seven governorships huge turnout numbers were reported across the country. President Trump responded to the election results by tweeting, quote, if the Democrats think they're going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the house level. Then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information and much else at the Senate level to complete that game. The terms were a groundbreaking election for women for the first time in US history. At least one hundred women will serve in the US house of representatives, including the first two native American women and the first two Muslim women later in the program. We'll hear from. Democratic socialist Alexandra Cossio Cortes who became the youngest woman ever elected to congress. But we begin today's show with two guests here in New York, Katrina, vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the nation. America's oldest weekly magazine. She's also a columnist for the Washington Post dot com, and we're joined by Rashad Robinson, executive director of color of change. We welcome you both to democracy. Now, let's begin with Katrina vanden who've oh your thoughts on what has taken place the house now in the hands of Democrats Republicans have expanded control of the Senate. I think taking back the house is critical is a check on President Trump. But also, I think it's important people know that a majority of the committees and subcommittees will be controlled by progressives. The progressive caucus will have about ninety members some of the women you mentioned will join and it will have thirteen committees. And I think thirty subcommittees that's important. And I think the ability to not only hold the president in the. Administration accountable on corruption on self interest on self-dealing, but the ability to lay out bold initiatives, bold, legislation may not pass with a Senate as we've seen it. But it's critical. I think that the progressive Democrats lay out in this war of ideas, that progressives have been winning to a certain extent fifteen minimum wage jobs program infrastructure, free higher. Ed. The governor's race is one spoke of critical critical both as a blue wall against the redistricting scams that we've seen from the Republicans critical also to rest back the rust belt from Trump who really did. Well, and key parts, Wisconsin. How sweet it is Scott Walker going down. I mean, my colleague John Nichols has written so much copy about this man who busted public workers assault on education has demeaned and degraded the Wisconsin idea, so I think that's critical amendment for renewed Robinson. And I were. Talking about it. One thing we've seen in this election. Amien won the barriers to democratic participation the will funded targeting voting suppression. So men men for restoring rights to ex-felons to vote one point four million Floridians will be able to vote I think is a vital step on the road to a true democracy. Statehouses? We haven't seen the numbers yet. But those will be hopeful as well flipping. I think Minnesota and a few others. So I think it was you know, it was a bittersweet night because we've seen the incendiary toxic. Nationalism xenophobia, any immigrant actions talk of this president and his enabler in the Republican party. You know, they they secured some wins. However, those who say was kinda split, let's all recall that the Senate map is the most horrific for Democrats. I mean, it's just, you know, the one third up we're really states in which the Republicans and Trump of played well, you mentioned the rust belt, and it to know that there were three states that really delivered for Trump, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania and of the and they're those three in those three states. The statewide all Ron's either for governor or for Senate for the US Senate of the Democrats won six out of seven. So you've seen a situation now where those key states now are really not as reliable Republican as they appear to be in two thousand. One. I mean, many of those voters went for Obama in two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve so it was that flip in two thousand sixteen that has to be looked at. And I think last night was in good insight into what is possible in twenty twenty in effect. We can talk about a twenty twenty began last night, but that's a different discussion. But I think you see it with taking back those those state houses there were some good minimum wage initiatives in states very troubling that good initiative in Washington state, the kind of carbon tax the green new deal went down. You still see the power of corporate money in our system and at the state level. There were six states that moved into total democratic contrived and the one of the New York state where the New York state Senate, which was had been very evenly divided. The Republicans control now is overwhelmingly democratic twenty three. I think is now the number in the New York state Senate win that means in terms of what can be accomplished. By progressives. Progressives won a supermajority in the Vermont house neutralizing, the newly reelected governor fill Scott's veto threat knows this. I mean, it's critical on so many levels. But historically, as you will know we've lost over a thousand state legislative seats in the last few years. So this is coming back and saying Democrats progressives are going to play at all levels, New York state. You studied you've written one? It's a major win us. See what governor Cuomo does with it because he's hid behind the inability to do much with the independent democratic conference now defeated one last race, which I think is very important one. And I were talking about is Antonio Delgado in the nineteenth congressional district that race was supercharged with toxic racist rhetoric. John Foucault has held out against good people except for teach out, but he's gone. So I think you know, it's a bittersweet, but I think real gains were made. And I think it would be wrong to. Downplay those one of the nation's most closely watched races of the year remains too close to call Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp, holding a slim lead over democratic challenger Stacey Abrams who is vying to be the first African American woman governor in US history, but Abrams is refusing to concede because thousands of absentee ballots have not yet been counted campus currently at fifty point five percent if he dips below fifty the race goes to a runoff. The Georgia race was marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression carried out by Brian camp. Again, who is as Georgia secretary of state is in control of the elections, despite the fact many demanded that he recused himself. Meanwhile, in Florida Democrat Andrew gillum conceded to Republican Ron to Santa's after a tight race Gillam attempting to become Florida's first African American government, but faced a string of racist attacks from outside groups into Santa's who told Floridians knocked. Monkey this up and in Maryland, Republican governor Larry HOGAN was re elected defeating democrat, Ben jealous. The former head of the N double ACP or shod Robinson. You're the executive director of color of change. Yeah. I think I think these. You know, what happened last night with particularly with Andrew in Stacy's race. I think represents the way that the south is changing.
