Come, let's have a chat. They also have to do some of the work that's. In general. They all, do we all do?

In say something I'm just that I just don't know what I'm talking about. You know what I mean. So it's felt very. I've just been very tentative about saying anything you know. Because it just feel like maybe that maybe my bets. My job is to not say anything. I mean obviously have this podcast so I. Say Fuck. But closing thoughts. Amy Goodman Social Media's. Interplay with all of this. I mean it's absolutely critical because no longer. Do you have the standard gatekeepers? So when a seventeen year old girl flips open phone, or we don't even flip Mopani more in starts filming that gets out there, and it doesn't have to go through the conventional places, and how important it is overall that we support independent media. Yeah, that one we're covering war and peace where not brought to you by weapons, manufacturers and that's another issue. In, all of this issue of police and defunding the police is the issue of the militarization of Police Now people like the Hawaii senator, even Brian, shots and others certainly grassroots activists, and we saw this at the standoff at standing rock militarized police. You saw it in Ferguson after the death of Michael Brown. People met by fully militarized police departments that has to stop because the people of this country. The protesters are not the enemy. Despite the fact that president trump calls them terrorists. It's simply a lie and as long as. The weapons from Afghanistan Iraq come back and are given to local police departments I mean that's recycling in America today, and that has to stop and also tear gas and pepper spray rubber bullets. These are not nonlethal, and they are wounding people all over this country. Yeah thank you. That was like a that was like a like a dose of democracy now in like a thirty second wrap up.

Family or the President Making a statement? But he said it's a great day for George. Can I tell you guys an interesting thing that? When I was in Palm Springs Zing parents. They watch a lot of Turkish TV shows and. They were saying you know as an Iranian immigrants May. Levy no other Iranian listeners. Do you watch a lot of Turkish TV shows I'm dying to know? Is it just my parents anyway? Their Water Turkish TV show. We were talking about abolish the police. They were asking me what that meant and all that stuff They were like endlessly talking about Mariel Buzzer. They love her anyways. Big Fans at the far side residents and And they were saying that there was a scene where A. person like a social worker came to a house that there was having a domestic. Domestic dispute in this team Turkish, TV, show the social worker came to the house, and then waiting outside by the car, was a police officer who may have had some sort of weapon that waited in the car, and then the social worker was dispatched to inside the home to deal with the situation. If Shit got real than the police officer would have been called from the car. This is actually and I was like what this happened in Turkish. Tell because that's one of the ideas. In? That popping up in a Bosh, the police. The police should just merely back up to the real work of delivering social services like conflict. Resolution And you know and other forms of social work. Mental health work. That's going to change a law and order. Show, law and order like how this show right right? Sure that's going to be. That's going to be a real switch, right? Chalet with that's a really important point because I talked about heavier. Amblin just killed a year ago, but now we have the videotape. Live PD. Yes. In the back seat and they filmed it and now this week it was just announced. That cops has been canceled. How is it possible that these shows are allowed to drive with the police in the police cars? Are they egging them on instead of no instead of mental health services social services being there, people are trained to deal with conflict. They have entertainment to read this all up, but amazingly live PD said after the two thousand nine hundred murder, of which we've just seen the video tape right now, and it is horrifying. They said they destroyed the tape, so they destroyed the evidence. They knew exactly what happened a year ago. I can't believe cops was canceled. Live PD is so popular is always on. And you know the the the thing is. There's I wanted to point out a congressional study that found. Again like when we're talking about about the police I don't want people to be afraid of what that means because it doesn't mean you call nine one one and nothing happens. Right and I think that's a little bit at the fear for me as political mantra that people will you know? Spin it to us. The you know the it's opposite meaning, and not is not what it means that you call nine one one and nothing happens right. For example if we if you call nine one one in Austin right now they ask you. Are you talking about? Do you need? Police? Fire Department or Mental Health Services Right, so they're. They're breaking down like what is the actual.
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

"Piece report Amy Goodman, many Hasson is our guest a columnist for the intercept host of the deconstructed podcast. Also is host of up front for Al Jazeera English. You mentioned the Iran contra scandal, if you can explain what the Iran contra scandal was so in the nineteen eighties. Congressional bound on the United States government supporting the contra rebels in Nicaragua. You're trying to bring down a communist government in South America. And you have this issue where the Reagan administration decided to sell weapons to Iran, which is supposedly an enemy country that time fighting a row and use the proceeds from that money to fund the contras in violation of a congressional about. There was a massive investigation was a huge scandal. Think Russia gate times ten the time in the nineteen eighties. Reagan obesity left office without being punished for it. They will. A special counsel Bob Mueller Stahl which was tossed to look into this Lawrence Walsh, a former deputy attorney general under Eisenhower, I think it was when he tried to look into this. He found resistance from Reagan's successor, George Hw Bush. We're now being told what honest and transparent. Manny was he followed the rule of law. Unlike Donald Trump today and yet at the time he refused to Dari. He refused to cooperate with the special counsel. We refused to give an interview sounds familiar doesn't Amy and then he pulled and the six top perpetrators Elliot Abrams. New on casper Weinberger Reagan's Defense Secretary and the special counsel report, which is online you can go and look at it. Now, very very clearly says the Bush helped perpetrate the cover of Bush did not cooperate. And he says, I think it's the first time a president paldon someone on the eve of a troll, the president would have had to testify. That's what Bush senior did when we're told today or look at the difference between George Bush senior Donald Trump. Well, when it comes to obstruction of Justice when it comes to cover up actually, there were more similar than some of the media, and some of the journalists would have you believe? Well, let's turn to the Gulf war in January of nineteen Ninety-one, George H W Bush addressed the nation on the invasion of Iraq. Is I report to you air attacks are underway against military targets in Iraq. We are determined to knock out Saddam Hussein's nuclear bomb potential. So may I ask why? Now, why not wait the answer is clear. The world could wait no longer. That's president George H W Bush in January of nineteen ninety one. Of course, flags were at half-mast in Washington this weekend, as they were in Kuwait, many Hassan, you remind us very important part of the story, the leader to what took place, and how it was the US responded the way they did to Iraq and Kuwait. Yes. Tell that story. So. You heard the statement from Georgia Bush senior, look, let's be very clear Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait illegally in violation of international law. He was it was a brutal occupation of Kuwait. No one's denying any of that. But what? Bush senior told the country was that this came without any warning without any provocation when in actual fact, his own ambassador at that time in Iraq, the US ambassador, April Glaspie toll Saddam just weeks before the invasion that we in America have no opinion on your border dispute with Kuwait. It was interpreted as a green light historians. Many historians just that that was a green light to Saddam from the Bush administration to invade off to Saddam invaded. We were also told by Bush senior that we have to go in to protect Saudi Arabia because that was coming next that I'm was about to invade Saudi as well. There were Iraqi troops massing on the border. In fact, one reporter named gene. Went went and bought some private commercial satellite data and found the Iraqi troops massing on the border to invade Saudi Arabia. It was another lawyer like you some told in the run-up to the two thousand three invasion. So it was a wall built on Hof truths. Evasions lies. No one's denying Saddam invaded what? George Bush told the nation was not the full truth and even all three went to war as you mentioned in your introduction. How many civilians were killed the United States government bombed an air raid shelter in Baghdad the Maria Schell to kill more than four hundred civilians Human Rights, Watch called a serious violation of the laws of war because the US knew US have been told before the US until knew that that was a place with civilians were congregating. They didn't just an air raid shelter, Amy. They bombed power stations, electricity-generating facilities, food-processing plums. Flour mills the civilian infrastructure, and this was not collateral damage. Planas from the United States government told the Washington Post told Baltin Gilman in one thousand nine hundred one but they were doing this on purpose. So that they would have leverage with a post war Iraq, which would be forced to supplication in the international arena for foreign assistance. And we know what happened next with the sanctions with the devastation that came in the nineties, and the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi kids who died that all started on George Bush senior's watch. Well, I want to go back to the election of George H W Bush during his one thousand nine hundred eighty eight presidential bid his campaign released. A now notorious television ad called weekend. Passes Bush and Dukakis on crime Bush supports the death penalty for first degree murderers. Dukakis not only opposes the death penalty allowed first degree murderers to have weekend passes from prison. One was Willie Horton who murdered a boy and a robbery stabbing him nineteen times despite a life sentence or receive ten weekend passes from prison. Orden fled kidnapped a young couple stabbing. The man and repeatedly raping his girlfriend weekend prison passes Dukakis on crime. That was the ad that Lee at Wor Lianne water, Roger Ailes and layout water top aides to George Bush at the time would apologize for on his deathbed. Explain how significant this was. Hugely significant Amy and even today in media journalism classes across the country that ad is taught that added studied until Donald Trump came along until the migrant caravan came along it was considered to be the most racist ad in modern American political history was in one thousand nine hundred election, and George Bush and his team decided that they were going to tie Michael Dukakis as the Massachusetts liberal queue this block rapist who had been released on the weekend fellow program. I think there's a quote from the reason we're going to talk about Willie holding so much. The people are gonna think he's Michael Dukakis his running mate. And this was Bush senior approved of this Bush senior talked about a Willie Horton in press conferences, and he never apologized. He never watch one deathbed apologize. Bush senior never apologize Roger stone. Amy, one of the most vile political operatives of all time close advisor to Donald Trump woman. Visit to Richard Nixon. He went up water and the Bush campaign and said, you will regret this because this is a clearly ways that when we're just stones telling you that you. To racist know you've gone too far and yet on Saturday on Sunday. I heard former Bush aides and advisers going on cable news saying he was a thoroughly decent, man. He believed in civility. He didn't believe in Ranga. He wanted to unify Americans have two words in response to that women Horta. In fact, as you quote, layout bragged at the time by the time, we're finished. They're going to wonder whether Willie Horton is dukakis's running mate. And he was talking about a policy that was actually law in a number of states, including California. India? I think Reagan had signed off on a similar thing. It was a deliberate attempt to stoke racial division to scare white voters into thinking, the Michael Dukakis was going to release a bunch of black murderers, rapists, or we're gonna come and kill and rape them. It was vicious and even recently. So ironic is the same cable news. Who have been praising George Bush it to the hilt since Saturday morning. Weeks ago, they were all referring to Willie Horton when they were condemning Donald Trump's migrant caravan on, you know, the ad that came out during the midterms about the Democrats let in this murderer cop killer. We were all reminded of William Houghton back then. But it seems like we won't make the logical connection which says the Willie Horton came from the Bush senior campaign this guy who was supposed to be a throwback to an era of civility and decency yet he had no problem running this racist election coming nor did he ever problem escalating a racist drug war. Let's talk about that drug war, and what George H W Bush did especially around the issue of crack. Yes. So he sat in the White House in the Oval Office in one thousand nine thousand nine and he held up a bag of crack cocaine, which he said famously, well, this was found just outside the White House in a park across from the White House dots. How about the drug problem is it was a great dramatic visual? And yet we discovered thanks to reporting from the Washington Post that drug dealer the drug seller have been arrested by federal agents. Yes. In Lafayette square, but he'd been to quote with those federal agents he was told to come and sell his white undercover operative. He's even huddled tape. I believe saying will where is the White House. What's the address? I've no idea how to get that this is pure cynicism. Amy to use this in this flake stunt, basically to mislead the nation from his supposedly honest Republican president which then led to a one and a half billion dollar increase in spending. Which is what Bush senior for he called for more. Prosecutors more jails more prison more courts, and we know how that story ends, Amy. Mouse incarceration imprisonment disproportionately of young black men. Lives lost thousands of innocent lives lost in the so-called drug war, both at home and abroad. And today, you have people at rand Paul Republican Senator who will emit Republican Senator Chris Christie will say this was a failed and racist drug war. Well, Nettie house, and I wanna thank you for being with us columnist for the intercept host of other of the deconstructed podcast. Most recent piece for the intercept will link to the ignored legacy of George H W Bush war crimes racism, obstruction of Justice.

"So that's how I how I sort of made the exodus out of the racing industry. Full-time? But then something happened to you in two thousand eight what was that? We all know two thousand eight was a disaster year for business. Yes, myself included. So I did transition. And when I was eight years old when I was eight years old. I was sitting in my fourth grade class. And I said I'm going to retire when I'm old and that'll be when I'm forty. Yeah. Did we all think that? Yeah. So yes, I did retire when I was forty one. And I you know, I had enough assets. And I was managing my investments and Ben came two thousand and eight and I had invested most of my cash in the Florida real estate markets. And so you know, naturally like twenty five percent of the population. I'd lost ninety percent of my money by wealth. And so I said all right. Well, it's time for you to pick yourself up by your bootstraps put your big girl panties on and go back into the traditional workforce. And that's what I did. So you you serve as chairperson of landmarks worldwide corps supervisor program, and you have something called communication to produce results. So tell us about that. Sure. Well, for those of you use some of you may have heard of landmark education or the landmark forum, I got so much value out of the landmark foreign I opted to participate in all of their programs that people tease me and say, you know, you have a PHD in communication. Yeah. You became a groupie. Well, hard. I appreciate the sentiment yet. Hardly work, very hard. With a with a really a commitment to be this to people and to make a viable career out of it. So that I could work and that I could play and that I could have my work be an expression of my work and my play, and that was really get a transformed myself from being a more technical person with some business Accu men to being able to work with people in a way that I could hear what's important to them and have the skills to work at through with them, really fast. So. Landmark puts on weekend seminars in some longer courses. And I saw the opportunity to contribute at a at a different level. But also to be developed in skills that I didn't have and I'm now accountable for just about five hundred plus people from all different walks of life with all different types of careers and everything from doctors to people who own companies to people who are retired and focusing on their golf game. And it's quite rewarding. Well, you know, they're hard about nine thousand coaches out there. What makes you different? And why would someone choose you over someone else because you know, ten years ago well twenty years ago, nobody even knew what a coach was except for an athletic coach, and then about ten years ago coaching really started to take off. And now, it seems like everybody you talked to is a life coach of some form or another. So what makes you different? They're back. You're saying in that time line. There was a a group of people that were a group of people who got together and said we're gonna develop some ethical standards for with the coaching industry is and so the international coach federation coach you were formed..

"Able to get the attention of our warehouse distributor to buy back. Our entire in our entire inventory, and then I was able to sell the balance of the inventory to the one of our competitors, frankly. But when I got into the racing industry full on. I was the only one, and I was young and I was attractive, and I was somewhat sheltered. And there was no listening for a woman in the racing industry except maybe on the snap on calendar or serving food during the meal breaks. And so my mentor Marvin Amy some really good advice that was tough to adhere to frankly, but he gave me some good advice. He said, you can't date any of these men. He said because you're a woman forging a career in that completely male dominated industry end, you made these men to endear you. But if you date even just one of them, the other ones will although maybe hidden from their view, they'll start to ask themselves. Well, why not me why did she pick him or all of those complications? And again, I want to say it was very difficult. And then let's say so the next piece of that. Right. That's the relationship part. The next pace is a car would be on the race track. And I would be collecting data. And then I would analyze the data after let's say a practice session. And the driver would be saying, I need more worst. Powered this car doesn't have enough force power. And I would be analyzing the data just like at a cardiologists. Does with an EKG how they read it a Katy, and I would say except here's the problem race car driver. You have more horsepower. But you have to actually put your foot to the floor. I could see they weren't pushing their pedal to the floor. But the challenge I faced Gail is that. They wouldn't really listen to me one of the men excuse me, one of the men had to then say exactly what I said over time this transformed, but it was really that way for a number of years. Well, you know, I can imagine that because I know that in corporate meetings. A lot of women have told me that they say something, and nobody pays attention to them. But then when a man says the same thing it's listened to very often approved and very often acted on. And again, when I teach when I did teach communication, and I talked about, you know, how you present yourself and how you get yourself heard and so forth. It was it's really tone of voice. It's how you project yourself. It's a lot of different things. And that's why voice communication is so important, and I served as chair of the better. In fact, I was the first one. Woman to chair the third largest Better Business Bureau in the country. And I I brought a lot of innovation to it. Which passed because I was very I was a good presenter. And that's why a lot of things that I did work. But how did you make the transition from calibrating race, car engines through the human side of business? Yeah. You know, just to follow on something you said as we transition to that question. Yeah. You probably note of Peter Drucker, and he famously said that however good. Our strategy culture will always eat our strategy for breakfast about the culture of something. That's right. That's true. Well, after you know, twenty plus years in the industry, I took a program it's a five day class. Of course that one of the engineers. At General Motors had recommended General Motors Ford and Reebok and. Many others. They reimburse or pay for their employees to participate in this five day program. And one of the engineers said, you know, immune should really take. This course. So I did. And it's called the landmark forum. And I participated in the Courson I discovered in. That course that you know, I could. Take everything in the way of business acumen that I've developed and my real passion for people and really be responsible for creating a future that I love it's going to be scary. So I mustered up the courage. I told Marvin that I was going to start working part time in eventually leave. And I took all of the classes that I could take to develop myself into somebody who could listen. Somebody who could ask many questions somebody who could be effective in dialogue with other people and have them fulfil on what's important to them..

"It's we had to learn and learn fast. And so my mentor who was a brilliant businessman. He jumped just like you coach people an opportunity was put in front of him to go back into the auto racing industry. He was retired racer, and we sold off all of the inventory and. I was studying computers in college, and he had an entire organization of people who were proficient with grace cars and chassis setup and all the stuff, but none of them had ever seen a computer. So when he ordered all of his new equipment, transforming the business into a racing enterprise all of the equipment came, and it was all computerized. And I was the only person in his organization that it ever seen a computer. So it became a perfect marriage of skills. I became an expert at the internal combustion engine. And then you know, it was all from there. So, you know, I mean, that's quite a story. But again, it goes back to when a big box store comes into your area. I know the little tiny boutique type of businesses almost always panic and unless they do something really really different or. Unusual. They're left behind. So what are some of the obstacles you overcame in business as a woman in a male dominated industry? It's a great question Gail. So when the some first of all when this new mass merchandiser came in and the new type repair shops came in that were a bit on ethical. We were faced with having a. Store. Foale auto parts, and I was able to force through negotiating skills. I was.

The supreme court split four two four earlier this year on whether to allow the execution to proceed meaning Justice Cavanaugh will likely cast the deciding vote in the case, and in Wisconsin, where Republican governor Scott Walker was defeated on Tuesday in his bid for a third term an office.

Governor Scott Walker which known for aggressively busting unions, and for his close ties to right wing dark money groups, and those are some of the headlines, this is democracy. Now democracy now dot org. The warrant piece report, I'm Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez, welcome to all of our viewers and listeners across the country and around the world. 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.
