"You have any dates lined up in the near future? I am supposed to go skiing with someone, wow. I know. And I have to say, I've never gone out skiing before with someone who I'd already been on a few dates with. So I'm kind of curious how that goes and it'll be interesting because most of the time I'm skiing, I'm with other people in the adaptive community. So that'd be really fun to go ski with someone who.

"With my satellite phone and my boots. At The New York Times, we want to be on the ground as soon as we can. We try to dig in to get as much as we can as this story breaks. Not a lot of news organizations can do that, and that's because we have the staff and the resources to really invest in telling this story. But it doesn't end there. We come back three weeks later, 5 months later, a year later, to try to understand the way the story ripples out into a community and the broader impacts that it can have on the country and even the world. All of this is possible only because of New York Times subscribers. They invest in our ability to do this kind of rigorous reporting. So if you aren't a subscriber yet and you'd like to join us, you can become one at NY times dot com slash subscribe. Okay, so I just got the national editor is actually calling me. All right, so hold on one second. Hey, Alexandra. Hey. Alexandra, how long have you been on dating apps? I have been on dating apps for almost four years. Since late 2018, I feel like I've been on them for the majority of my adult life. Same. I feel like there's just the solidarity of women on apps is a really strong presence in my life. You know what I mean? Just being like, we're all navigating this. But it's like such a necessary evil. And I really do mean evil. I mean? Yeah. I can't speak to dating and other cities. I just feel like there's something about being in New York and the endless endless lists of options you have. Yeah. That you're just wondering, how does anyone decide who to actually continue talking to or stop talking to or see twice? Like, I don't know. It does feel really like we're shooting in the dark, like we're just making it up. Oh yeah. I wonder, would you be game to share your profile with me now? I can totally share my profile with you now. I'm gonna send mine to you as well. All right, I'm sending you. There you are. Oh my God. I love all of your photos. They're so fun. Oh my God, I love your photos too. Okay, so this first one, it's like a shoulders up shot. You're looked to be standing on a rooftop of some sort. How did you decide on this photo as your first pick? I wanted it to feel like it was actual snapshot of me. And this was like a very typical day. I have to delighting is superb in this. It's like emanating from the corner. You look angelic, you're doing sort of a soft smile. You really mastered the closed mouth smile. It's a gorgeous pick. I think you nailed it. I have to tell you, I think that's ten out of ten incredible first photo. Was this a selfie? It was 100% a selfie with a soft smile. Is that not the exact same thing? Yes, you have the soft smile selfie and nice lighting. And you're like, I'm back up. Another thing about this app is that there's like little written prompts, you know what I mean, that you answer and I see you have where to find me at the party and your answer, which I love, is definitely dancing. I want your honest feedback on my prompt answers. Because I feel like my tactic is because I sort of Bach at their cheesiness. I don't take them that seriously. Okay, your first frontiers, I'm looking for more napkins. I feel like a I'm a messy eater so that is a real snapshot of the I'm looking for more napkins. But then also like obviously this prompt is supposed to be like, I'm looking for a love connection. You know what I mean? I'm looking for something casual. And I chose to deliberately misread this prompt and put more napkins. I guess my approach with dating apps in general is to try to be funny. Do you feel like you used humor on your profile? Well, I first want to say that I love the humor because I am also always looking for more napkins and stashing them in my bag for like literally no reason. It's just a habit. And listen, you have to be prepared. So there's that. And yeah, I think I could probably use more humor on some of my profiles, like there's one that said, what is your love language? Or my love language is. And then I'm like, I don't know. I could be funny and write like my love language is when people carry my leg to me when it's in the other room. That's like ultimate act of endurance. Wait, I really love that. Well, tell me, so you've considered putting that down, but what's why haven't you put it down? I guess because I'm always trying to find that fine line of making this a thing and not making this a thing. Not getting too into talking about the leg, but also wanting to feel like I can talk about it in a way that feels me and I joke about it all the time. It's very light to me, even though it's a heavy thing to other people. And that's very, very true. I consider the loss of my leg and, you know, the cancer experience behind it, to have been definitely some kind of trauma. Like that was a hard time, but I think the hardest times were figuring out my body image all the years afterwards. But I think, you know, at the end of the day, I've kind of began to see it as something I can laugh and make light of because this is what I'm going to look like for the rest of my life. And I don't think it's good enough to just accept the way I look. And to just say I'm okay with it. I really have to be at the point where I can celebrate it. And that's been a big one for me. Essays about how you present your prosthesis on a dating app. Do you have friends who navigate something similar on the apps? Yeah, so some of my friends, like if you can write a little bio about yourself under your first photo, they'll say like, left above knee amputee running around Dallas, you know, or something like one legged girl walking around San Diego. You know, things like that. Sure. And I was like, well, that's like so that feels so loud that feels so out there. But some of my friends, like, that's what they're going for. So sometimes, you know, we'll have debates like, okay, should I slip in the word amputee in my bio? Sure. Or should I throw in like a prompt that makes some joke about how I'm playing the longest game of hide and go seek ever? Wait, what do you mean? That was like a joke that one of my friends, he told me this when we were having a talk one time about apps. He was like, why don't you say something like looking for my leg? It'll be the longest I didn't go seek game ever. And I was like, I don't know if that's funny or messed up. Yeah. Do.

"I still don't have a plan for explaining over dating apps how I lost my leg. In fact, telling guys how I lost my leg is the last thing I want to do on a dating app. Sometimes I'll say, I had bone cancer as a young girl. Keeping it simple. I cringe at the responses oh damn. I am so sorry. You must be so strong. On dating apps, I don't want to be thought of as being that kind of strong. I don't want to talk about chemotherapy. I really have to be in the mood for that. On apps, I just want to know if we can go out to dinner and grab a drink on Friday night. When I think of rob, I know I dodged a bullet. Friends are quick to say that he was not meant for me, and they're right. But I also wonder what would have happened if we had met. If I had not mentioned my leg. If I hadn't mentioned the leg, rob and I would have met for dinner. When I arrived, I might have caught him off guard with my walking limb. He might not have been into it, but he would have had no choice but to talk with me. To engage with me at least for a while, as an actual person, even if he were to drop things with me afterward. Just to be able to humanize the abstraction would have been valuable. And my hope would be from that night on, rob wouldn't be able to escape into baseless misconceptions and generalizations about other amputee women. Perhaps he would remember me and think of the night we met. And maybe he would think of how little it all mattered then. Doesn't change happen one person at a time. After all,.

Lucas Miles Describes How 'The Christian Left' Has Invaded the Church

"Friends. I'm sitting here now with my friend Lucas miles. He's written a book called the Christian left, how liberal thought has hijacked the church. This is a very, very important subject. Lucas miles, thank you for being with me. Hey, thanks for having me. Let's talk about this because there's so many people that are that attend churches that are kind of drifting along with this. They've accepted some of this rather than understanding that this is very bad on every level. So when you talk about the church being invaded in your book, the Christian left talk to us about the details. Yeah, I mean, what we're really seeing is this rising, growing constituency of left leaning, Christians, progressive Christians, and sometimes Christians in name only who have embraced Marxism, socialism, critical race theory. When you say Christians in name only, do you specifically mean the Episcopal Church? You know, I think there could be there's probably some of these individuals may be in a lot of churches. But we have to be clear that the mainline Protestant churches, okay? They're all hanging out rainbow flags. They're all hanging out at BLM. I wrote them off when the National Council council of churches was formed. They are just utterly useless. But what you're talking about and what concerns us more is the so called evangelical church. We expect this when we drive through a big city and we see the old churches downtown that are these mainline denominations and just see those a lot of times they're higher liturgical. We expect to see the rainbow flag flying above the cross. That doesn't necessarily shock anybody today. It should, but it doesn't, right? But what we're now seeing is in our community churches are evangelical megachurches. These places that are teaching CRT that are pushing socialism Marxism Marxist ideas from the pulpit and many of these people are drifting a really away from, I believe, Orthodox Christian

NJ State Sen. Ed Durr: New Jersey Voted Blue but the State Is Not Blue

"So as a guy who's very familiar with New Jersey politics it's a state that's trended pretty far left over the years not as much as New York but not that far behind And do you sense a change on the ground center You sense a change on the ground now given how close the gubernatorial election was with Phil Murphy where he barely barely won that election You sense the tide turning is that the parents and the schools the school stuff the mandates I mean your thoughts being there and living it now almost full time Well yeah absolutely the tide has changed but I do want to just point out you said it was a very deep blue state We voted blue but I don't feel the state is blue I think we're kind of more of a purplish almost a red slant because if you really look at where the boats come from it's on the 95 corridor and it's usually the big cities that are blue while the outskirts are red But yeah the tide is definitely changing we have seen the anger in the parents especially with the mask and the schools When governor Murphy had closed our schools his master children but then you see the hypocrisy I'll just give you a point of reference right after the election They have a thing called the league of municipalities that meets down in Atlantic City after every election And I went down there you know everybody wanted to meet me which this is part of the thing that I didn't expect the fanfare about my win But when we went down there oh I was arm in arm and with Democrats too So the hypocrisy of them forcing children to wear masks who are the least vulnerable as we both know But then turn around and run around arm and arm and know wearing no mask So you know it's all about politics

So after nearly a year of destruction by left wing mobs all over the country in every big city, burnings of police departments, people dead, beaten, and to see, takeovers of areas, which are then called autonomous zones, after all of that, the only thing that the media talk about. The is the insurrection. It's like the thugs in Germany who use the Reichstag fire to take more power.

It is a Red island. It is a Republican island. It is Staten Island. It is the reason market. I'm running for mayor of the city of New York because against their own party leadership. They nominated me to be the mayoral candidate. And now my battle is in the other four boroughs, which many of your listeners originally what from Brooklyn and Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan.

So if you didn't live near enough to the big city to get the channels but you were in the what they call the area of dominant influence the of that market as we are. We're about fifty miles north of san francisco too far for anything but antenna on one hundred foot masts to get the Get reception so that's why you know cable does well out here in the boonies in the suburbs in the burbs And of course those are the two constituencies really liked this idea of low caste because i could just fire up low-caste dot org and watch my local stations without an antenna without A cost and the rationale was. We'll hey they're broadcasting for free it's ad-supported why the heck not so the first company to try this. Remember the areo. Their excuse was they had a little dime sized antennas and every subscriber had their own antenna. So all they were doing is putting that intent ten on the internet supreme court.

A temporary restraining order from Travis County Judge Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Governor Greg Abbott had wanted the state Supreme Court to overrule that judge. Here's what all that means. Some school districts in Texas have been putting their own mask mandates in place in opposition to Governor Greg Abbott's ban on them. The court has now cleared the way for those districts to enact their own mask rules. Meanwhile, although Covid 19 vaccinations have increased in recent weeks, the delta variant continues to spread rapidly among the unvaccinated, including Children. According to the Texas Tribune.

Delta Variant Linked to Troubling Spike in COVID Cases in Washington State

"Behind that in Western Washington. They are not number or reproductive rate of the virus is around three where below one is where you want to be to see new case numbers fall. Ironically, it's closer to two in eastern Washington, which has large areas with low vaccination rates. The delta Variant is the big contributing factor and has changed everything about the virus because it's more contagious, says Dr Ali Meqdad with UW medicine. Mark Dad says that combined with the large segment of the population, still unvaccinated will sustain this current surge. He here right now, but breaks to infections and people are saying, you know, when you get the vaccine, you may be infected, but still the bad seeds and highly effective against ending up in a hospital where a more so they're saving lives and protecting our hospitals. All of us need to remember what we call an epidemiology Counterfactual. If we didn't have these vaccines, and does the valiant hit us the way it's hitting us so hard and our state and in our country would have had a lot of mortality in this country. Look at house of countries where vaccination coverage is very low in Iran, For example, the mortality is going so cry to that point that that bodies, unfortunately, are being moved by taxes. We're seeing hospitals continue to fill up in part because of the code. Of its surge. But Mark Dad tells me he doesn't think Washington's hospital system will crash as his feared in other states proudly will tell you, Ryan, We are so prepared at U Dub and we have done all what it takes to be ready for research. So I don't I'm not afraid about Seattle and King County and the big cities. I'm very much concerned about community and I would stay. And of course, we are willing and ready to receive patients from elsewhere in the state. We should be able in our state to manage the search was dealt. If and only if people help us by reducing their activities, Wedding and mass and getting the vaccine. Now you heard Dr Mark Dad say one of the ways we can slow.

Census Data Could Make Voting Rights Legislation Even More Important to Democrats

"Move over to the question of the census Now and my I want to ask you About the numbers that came out yesterday. We saw that the U. S population the last decade has become less white has become more diverse, notably and politically important places. Florida, Texas, Nevada, Georgia. Are we seeing up? Purple ink of these places. I don't know what purple and blue makes. But is that happening here? Well, I think it's a purple ng. If you can immediately assume that these populations this growing number of racial minorities are going to vote Democratic, then I suppose that it is Sort of a purple ink. And you also see which is another good sign for Democrats. This rapid growth in big cities over the last 10 years, which have always been democratic domains that Republicans are looking also to cut into. But I think your point is right, especially in the Sun Belt states in these battleground states that Democrats absolutely need if they want to hold the house and expand their majority in the Senate. Thinking about Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, Arizona, which isn't quite the sun Belt, but still kind of in that in that range of states that Democrats will I live in Arizona. It's the Sun Belt. I'll say that Yeah, and and, you know, thinking a lot about the deep south as well where Democrats are hoping to make inroads. Of course, there are two big roadblocks to this one. The fact that the GOP controls redistricting in a majority of these battleground states and will be The party that writes these these district lines in the next couple of months here that were most likely to be favorable to them, and also in the sun Belt states. They're starting to pass, especially in Republican controlled state legislatures loss that would limit turnout among a lot of the groups that were saying or that we're seeing.

"Statewide level there were other kind of reformers and they faced brutal tough fights. Robert followed took on the railroads in wisconsin. The railroads kept beating him and so he kept coming back and running and every time they beat him he'd become more radical more reformist more anti-corruption he took on the republican party and describe quote. Corrupt graft ridden system of bosses and special privilege said that in his autobiography he ran an eighteen ninety six lost in eighteen ninety seven. He bought a country weekly then published madison coordinators autobiography as we now at a medium through which to maintain from week to week a campaign of education. The time seemed at hand to propose a constructive program and let me emphasize this line. La- followed a campaign of education. I would say everybody who wants to reestablish a safe prosperous healthy america well we need more than politics as usual more than thirty second commercials more than the usual garbage win a campaign of education sa- great line and by the way saw so what the jacksonians did in the eighteen twenties reaching out to the country not just talkin purely partisan baloney but to actually teach people to give them things to let them know about what's going on as the follows. Paper was educating people. Their circulation went up because it was kind of fascinating. The boss has got so alarmed they are wanted to have. The post office. Denied the paper. Second class male privilege sounds a little bit like twitter or facebook or google or all the efforts to block americans from talking to themselves despite the oligarchs inspectors from actually took possession of lafalce books and investigated the matter however in the end. The post office backed out. He ran for governor again in nineteen ninety eight but he is beaten again and nineteen hundred. He ran for governor again and won the republican nomination. He actually won the general election with almost sixty percent of the vote. Forty eight hours after. He took office quote the newspapers. On the morning of january ninth contain the startling announcement that the stalwart republicans as the machine element of the party. Now for the first time call themselves were in control of the senate and that they proposed a fight the administration measures. This was the first animation we had at. The old leaders were secretly planning to defeat the legislation pledged in the platform. It was a great shock to us. I found it hard to believe that men elected punishes so clearly presented would have the heart hood to turn about so quickly from that point on you had a war in wisconsin between la jolla and the old power structure and it was just amazing and follow just kept going back to the public and he kept winning railroads in many ways played the role that twitter and facebook apple and google or playing right now and the result is that the follow took him on did an immense amount of research took his research presented to congress and members of congress protested and threaten but they couldn't ignore the facts and so ultimately the whole base what became the progressive movement was basically a war between la followed losing several times coming back winning and the railroads who thought that money and lobbyists in bribery could overcome popular will in parallel. Lola follow. is doing that in wisconsin. He was setting the stage. For hiram johnson to come along and california johnson was the twenty third governor of california from nineteen eleven to nineteen seventy. He was part of the lincoln. Roosevelt league whose platform opposed the southern pacific railroad. And it's exactly the same kind of model the railroad an oligarchy very powerful and extraordinary with rampant corruption. One of the things that johnson did she got an automobile and he went out and visited all the small towns in california that the railroads had refused to serve so everywhere. Will you couldn't get to a railroad. You could get to see her. Johnson and a car and has resulted has kept building momentum if you go read his inaugural address. January third. Nine eleven hiram johnson took on the southern pacific companies corruption and the way in which they operated and just went straight at him. I mean this was an all out war over pure power. And in the end hiram johnson one in the process created much of the referendum model though we now associated with california one or two other examples on the other coast tammany hall was famous as a machine and in fact i always recommend to people. Wonderful small book called plunkett of tammany hall. Plunkett had been a member of the tammany machine and late in his career. He talked to a reporter as somebody who thought it was a good deal. He said look. You know you're poor. It's winter you have no call the machine. Brings you some call all the machine. Ask as you vote for it. Now he said government doesn't do any of these services we do and it's a great little book but also told you how absolutely totally corrupt the system was well. There are a number of people who just couldn't stand the corruption. One of those famous was samuel tilden. Who almost became president. And who really would after tammany hall and indicted boss tweed who was the head of tammy on one hundred and twenty council fraud because of his popularity. Taking down tweed. Tilden was elected. Governor of new york almost became president had states. The village independent democrats was one of the best known reform democratic clubs based in greenwich village which helped topple carmine to sabio and tammany hall in. That was back in one thousand nine hundred sixty one remember tones. Eighteen seventy one. The village democrats is nineteen sixty one. Meanwhile in the middle of the country Brilliant leader named paul. Douglas who became a senator was determined to reform the system. He ran for the chicago city council as an independent democrat. Nineteen thirty nine. He won and he served his autumn until nineteen forty two when he sought the democratic nomination. Us senate he was a registered independent. This is great who felt that the democratic party was to corrupt and the republican party was too reactionary and wrote a book nineteen thirty to call the coming of the new party. Douglas sought the republican -dorsements premier and thirty three but didn't get it in nineteen thirty nine. Douglas and a group of independence looked to challenge democrat. Joseph alderman for auto. Douglas became their candidate in with the endorsement of the democratic mirrored kelly. He won after winning in nineteen thirty nine. Douglas found himself in the minority and often lost forty nine to one on the city council on reforms for the public school system and lowering public transportation fees. But he never backed off he ultimately won a us senate seat and was actually instrumental in the election of harry truman in nineteen forty eight. Meanwhile odd very far from chicago and minneapolis minnesota in historic people. Don't really remember very well. Hubert humphrey grand for mayor of minneapolis had ran a pharmacy. His poorly funded campaign got forty seven percent of the vote in fact when they got to the runoff he only six thousand out of one hundred fifteen thousand votes by nineteen forty four. He was a key figure in bringing together. What had been a reform. Rural party called the farmer labor party and the democratic party which had been the urban party and they created what still exists today the minnesota democratic farmer labor party. And here's where it gets interesting. Communist tried to take over the party genuine communist.

"Last few years. But everyone knows. This can't last forever especially now that joe biden is proving to be the most radical president history with many stocks trading at very high valuations many experts. Already predicting the crash could be imminent if you're planning to retire soon. You can't afford to take a major hit. Now go to prepare with new dot com and get all the details on how to prepare for this possible collapse now. These i two examples given you and a lot more violence than most of the reformers. So let's switch gears and go to our biggest city and a man who ultimately became president. But who was a reformer his entire career theodore roosevelt. Roosevelt was in a city new york which had been notorious for serious corruption. luxeuil committee in eighteen ninety four investigated the new york. Police department an eighteen ninety-five theodore roosevelt became the president of the new york. Police department police commission and adopted a series of reforms against corruption. We have to remember with teddy roosevelt. Nothing was halfway. Somebody wants to roosevelt that he walked along the shore and thought every single rock or shell was a brand new thing for the of a museum and that he wanted to be the bride and every wedding and the corpse at every funeral. This was a guy of enormous energy. Who basically really liked to be at the center of things to give you some sense of roosevelt's efforts combating corruption. Let me cite roosevelt himself. This is a quote from theodore roosevelt in eighteen ninety seven describing his earlier efforts quote in may eighteen ninety five. I was made president of the newly appointed police sport whose duty was to cut out the chief source of civic corruption new york by cleansing the police department. The police board consisted of four members. All for the new men were appointed by mayor strong. The reform mayor who had taken office in january with me was associated as treasurer of board mr avery de andrus. He was a democrat and republican and there were questions of national politics on which we disagreed widely but such questions could not enter into the administration. The new york police. If that administration was to be both honest and efficient and as a matter of fact during my two year service mr andrews and i worked in absolute harmony on every important question policy which arose the prevention of blackmail and corruption the repression of crime violence the safeguarding of life and property securing honest elections and rewarding efficient and punishing. Inefficient police. service are not and cannot properly be made questions of party difference in other words. Such body as the police force of new york can be wisely and properly administered only upon a non partisan basis and both mr andrews and myself were quite capable of managing at any other and administering the police force. We found as might be expected though. There was no need of genius nor deed of any very unusual qualities. What was required was the exercise of the plain ordinary virtues of a rather commonplace type which all good citizens should be expected to possess common sense common honest courage energy resolution readiness to learn and a desire to be as pleasant with everybody as was compatible with a strict performance of duty. These were the qualities most called for. We soon found that in spite of the widespread corruption which had obtained the new york police department. Most of the men were heartily desires. To be honest there are some who were incurably dishonest. Just as there were some who remain decent in spite of terrific temptation of pressure but the great mass came in between although not possessing the stamina to war against corruption. The seem well-nigh hopeless. They were nevertheless heartily glad to be decent and they welcomed the change to a system under which they were rewarded for doing well and punished for doing you are methods for restoring order and discipline were simple and hardly less so our methods for security efficiency. We made frequent personal inspections especially at night going anywhere at any time. And this way we shouldn't got an idea of whom among our upper subordinates. We could trust and whom we could not. We then proceeded to punish those who are guilty of shortcomings and reward those who did well refusing to pay any heed. Whatever to anything except the man's own character and record a very few promotions and dismissals suffice to show our subordinates that at last they were dealing with superiors who meant what they said and that the days of political poor were over while we had the power effect was immediate the decent mental cart and those who are not decent feared longer to offend the morale of the entire improved steadily. A similar course was followed in reference to the relations between the police and citizens generally there had formerly been much complaint of the brutal treatment by police innocent citizens. This was stopped peremptorily by the obvious expedient of dismissing from the force the first two or three men who were found guilty of brutality on the other hand we made the folks understand that in the event of an emergency requiring them to use the weapons against either a mob or an individual criminal. Police board back them up without reservation. Our sympathy was for the friends and not the photos of order if a mob threatened violence. We're glad to have the mob hurt. If a criminal showed fight we expected the officer to use any weapon that was requisite to overcome him on the instant and even if it became needful to take life all that the board required was to be convinced that the necessity really existed. We did not possess a particle of that maudlin sympathy for the criminal. Disorderly and lawless classes. Which is such a particularly unhealthy side of social development and we were determined that the improvement of the fighting efficiency. The police should keep pace with the improvement of their moral. To let me say that. That's theodore roosevelt telling you in detail and it reminded me that if you wanna look at a great example of dramatic urban reform in new york city. There is nothing better than to look at the job that was done by rudy. Giuliani starting in nineteen ninety-three giuliani's book leadership is walkable and is a great example of how leader can profoundly changed city literally almost overnight in addition surely on a brilliantly hired probably the greatest police chief in the twentieth century bell brenton who by the way also wrote a book called turn around and the two books if you put them together leadership but what. The politician does and turn around by brighton. What the professional police officer it makes you wonder how can these other cities be so stupid. I mean here it is. It's a formula and we know bratton works because brandon's techniques worked in boston. His techniques worked in new york his techniques worked in los angeles. I personally went out and visited with him in los angeles and watched how it operated. He just wrote a new book by the way which is a memoir of his career. And we're going to have all of those books available in the show page but again teddy's talking about the eighteen ninety s here. We are one hundred years later and new york. Once again has decayed crime has gotten terrible. And along comes giuliani and bratton and they literally within two months had begun to change the whole tone of the city and had brought about a peaceful city and ultimately over time with policies which were also by the way followed by bloomberg reduced the murder rate by eighty five percent. I ought to a place like chicago and you just think to yourself. What is it. They can't get and the answer is frankly they don't want to get it. The chicago power structure prefers to be the city. It is even at the cost of normal. Everyday people being killed teddy for a second in his autobiography. Teddy roosevelt talked about his time as police commissioner. He says quote. Well police commissioner. We punished any brutality by the police with such immediate severity. That all cases of brutality practically came to an end. No decent citizen had anything to fear from the police during the two years of my service but we consistently encourage the police to prove that the violent criminal who endeavored to molest them or to resist arrest or to interfere with them the discharge their duty was himself in grave jeopardy and we had every gang broken up and the members punished with whatever. Severity was necessary of course when possible. The officer merely crippled the criminal. Who was violent closed. That was teddy roosevelt. Idea of being sentimental. We're not gonna kill you. We're just going to cripple now. This was an era when people realized that corruption was all over the place. And if you really want to get a feel for one of the great productive reform prison american history. You can read the shame of the cities written by lincoln. Steffens published nineteen four. It's a remarkable series of essays on corruption. Case of stephens. He looks at saint louis. Minneapolis pittsburgh philadelphia chicago and new york. I think you'd find that that period was one of dramatic effort.

"And mls sumer access dot org on this episode of news world. I want to explore the question of where are the reformers. You know i look at baltimore. Extraordinarily bad schools very high level of violence. Whole neighbors have no jobs and yet people are passive. there's no great reform movement chicago weekend to go. A hundred people shot a four month old in the hospital recovering. The south side of chicago has problems with drugs problems with bad schools problems with no jobs. And where's the reform of look at portland maine. Portland has antifa almost every single night breaking the law in substantial numbers and yet law-abiding citizens to seem totally passive but to me looking at a long american tradition of cleaning things up. This is a that goes back. Probably to the very beginning of the united states is a country a willingness for honest citizens to come together to take on the machine or take on corruption to force dramatic change. And now it's not true. Everywhere is not all the time. But there has been a remarkably consistent pattern. And so i thought i would take a handful these and give you a taste of american history as release to reforms and i think you'll understand my own sense of aim perplexed because i don't understand why we don't have an entire healthy generation of honest courageous people out here reforming systems that are clearly destructive of freedom destructive human beings destructive of children. So bear with me for a few minutes and i want to share with you some of the great examples. This is a long way from a complete story.

Bratton john katzman. Tv's here. i understand his crime searching all over the country. And i think remain you talked about in previous weeks. And we're very very much concerned in america's concerned And i understand. President biden has created a new task force to go around the country. And look at it. I be what we know about this About the task force Minimum actually being quite frankly to john. The person that came out with a very comprehensive set of proposals early this week. Good news about that. Is that as i hopeful sign. I've seen about starting to face up to the The new virus we dealt with coronavirus. Now we're dealing with the crime virus that was exploding Almost quietly behind the coronavirus so his comprehensive set up proposals and initiatives. Basically i think has stopped the swing of the pendulum to the foul left His debunking of defunding police clearly saying his f. It is to refund. The police is a promising sign. Where he's saying to america's may as governors cetera. Take three hundred fifty billion dollars that has left from covert relief and basically use it to deal with the new virus to hire more cops. Spend more money on time. Because even it's gonna hire more cops going to take a year. That's not gonna help during the next year. You're in the summer months trying going up but over time to put many more cops back on the street when they need. It'd be helpful. The effort is going to be very interesting to watch however as to what type of reaction we do get Basically the defunding. The police the criminal justice reform movement as to whether they respond to the president sweet. I'm hoping they do As the gun violence issue that you focus so much attention on on your show. That site shows no signs of abating I'm encouraged by some aspects of the president's proposal to the atf Proposals to beef that agency up. It's a critical agency to once again that funding research into gun violence secondly to get a permanent. Atf director something. That congress has screwed of out with many many years. the atf. I work with them closely. In los angeles they were very instrumental in helping us reverse the gun. Violence and gang violence in la happy to see that new york is one of the five cities with these atf. Task is going to come in and work with the l. nypd. But i'd point out that the nypd going back to two thousand fourteen. When i came back with john miller who's thankfully still in the department part of his was to basically reinvigorate relationships with all the federal agencies. So right now right now..

"big city" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer

"Welcome back to the program. Earlier in the show. We spoke with Chuck Marone from Strong towns strong times that orc and we talked about the future of Big City America, even mid size City America. And how a lot of cities are not in a position to be sort of forward thinking and planning, you know, vision questing there in the position of trying to Deal with the consequences of the policy choices they've made in the last year and, frankly, in some places over the last several decades. And so this profile on the city of Portland was an interesting one that I read and Forbes. I just think of the opening of the show Portlandia where it's like, keep Portland weird. It's the sort of bohemian place that's liberal and wacky. And and colorful in that way. And, uh, now I don't even think you can say Portland has become a caricature of Portlandia because That would include that were that would imply there's something humorous. About what's happening there, and it doesn't seem very funny at all. Given the violence, the turning over of the city to mobsters in the form of antifa. Our friend Andy No almost murdered by Antifa last year. Wrote, was written a book about it as he's tracked their movements. The Impotent of local officials, their starting with the mayor Ted Wheeler. Um, it's uh perhaps, uh, The city that has been on the Fastest downward trajectory since the covert outbreak. For more on that. Let's speak with the gentleman who put together the profile and Forbes. I'm referencing death of the city. The Portland story. His name is Bill Connolly, senior contributor Forbes, chairman of the board of the Cascade Policy Institute and author of the Flexible Stance. Thriving in a boom bust economy a bill Thanks for joining us appreciate it. Hello, Dan. With respect to Portland. It's not a sudden is Pompeii as you reference in your piece, but but I mean, the descent on the pace of it is striking even as compared to Cities that sort of have been slowly declining over many years like my hometown of Chicago, that's right. The cities across the country are hurting because of the covert pandemic, and I would say here in Portland, that is still the biggest problem. People are sick People are are not going downtown. They are avoiding restaurants on and theaters that kind of stuff, But we have, in addition, a set of poor policies that result from poor leadership, and it's not just the mayor. Or the other elected officials like our district attorney who does not like to prosecute the riot related cases. But the business community, the nonprofit leaders, the religious leaders, there's a failure of leadership across the board. To address high housing costs, the persistent riots and the homelessness on on the street, so I believe that Portland has shot itself in the foot. And usually, I don't know if you have ever done that that usually people survive a gunshot wound to their feet so long as they get treatment, But the Portland leadership is denying that it has any wound at all. And as a result, we are at risk of dying as a city. It's interesting. You talk about sort of the housing costs and making it unaffordable for middle income families, Malcolm people and families. It's just always remarkable to me is sort of the most progressive places and probably branded as such. Portland, San Francisco, number one Have the greatest income disparity on and the biggest homeless problems that's right and our land use policy. What we did here in Portland is we drew a line and we call the urban growth boundary. And developers cannot build subdivisions apartment houses outside of that boundary, and it was so the people who owned houses would benefit. When you drove to your second house at the beach or in central Oregon, you did not have to drive through subdivisions. You drive through farms, and that looks nice, but it really disadvantaged people who were not homeowners. Disadvantage. Renters and funny thing is it had a racist impact. The people who pass that law we're not racist intentionally, but it had the effect of making life very hard for lower income people, which included many of Portland's minority communities. So here we have. That seems to happen a lot when you make policy based on sentiment rather than economic, That's right. So here we have leaders in in the community who want to help minorities, But they're supporting policies that hurt minorities. When we come back with Phil Connelly and want to explore the footprint Antifa has in Portland. Just how Much have they been able to essentially take over there or is it been sort of overhyped will get his perspective. Phil Connelly, senior contributor for chairman of the Board of Cascade Policy Institute and author of the Flexible Stance, thriving in a boom bust economy..

"Cook things that they love you know they listed the recipe that that they they know they liked to cook there good cooking and they can develop an audience of their own through the platform and actually you know how the feeling of giving back to their community rather than you know. Being holdaway in the kitchen and stuff like that is actually. It's very nice to see you know opportunity kind of lends itself to more opportunity. You know you can create a a a a virtuous circle of of you know opportunities for various communities so that that's really refreshing to see well you no as as I'm listening to you. I mean for one thing I know so many people that I met through business networking who have a love of baking or a love of making a certain types of food but they don't want to start up a storefront right. They don't it's just it's neither they don't have the resources to do. They just plain don't WanNa do it. They love just you know baking and selling stuff from their home but of course who makes any money doing that right while this right this here here now we're getting a situation where you can you actually can do that and and and my suggested this is a client of yours this the sabre group. Yes yeah exactly we're working with the founder her name's Poonam and she's doing amazing things. You know we're going to be shooting an awesome video series for her. The highlights all the shots and each of these chefs will be able to tell their personal story of how they got passionate about cooking why they join the platform so it's it's a really heartfelt way to build a community in a big city like New York aside from just food delivery APP so I mean there are a lot of competitors in that space like seamless but no one's really offering that value proposition they are. You know that's that's kind of their their different quality. That's why we're excited to work with them. Honestly well. You know what I'm thinking again. This is just off the cuff. Maybe already this Niko but sincere since you hash action with with her. I had a because I'm a bodybuilder. I've had had a lot of people locally say to me. You know how how do you eat right for looking like you do and I say well. I you know I can give you the the The the food lists that I use and the portions that I used to do is follow it right in there and you know there's plenty of people who they're not serious about. There's some other people especially people who tend to have a little bit more money to throw at it. who say I would do that except I have no time to put towards boards. Prep you know I'm constantly grabbing fast food or or takeout for that very reason because I just can't. I try my schedule and my thought was I I would I know how to prepare enough meals as a bodybuilder. If I had a way of getting it into the hands of people who are looking for it but but then I would need a technology like saver in order to connect with those people in my local area so that I could actually you know make the investment investment of of all of the materials and then bright repair it and and off off it goes so fascinating yeah yeah no I. I actually see your point. the. Nice thing about saver is that although there are focusing right now on this from kitchen aspect of the business technologically they're pretty far band so they have their own own standalone delivery APP. They have another application that exists only for personal chefs that will actually come to your home and cook a meal for you at a very reasonable price and they will cook you know based on what you'd like. and of course those can also cook from their own residential dental or commercial kitchen and that can be delivered so I mean aside from just a few delivery application. It's really a way for a community to interface with itself and service. Each Other's needs because there are a lot of people that like myself as well. I don't have time to cook every cooking but I just you know on the move. I'm working. I'm attending conferences. I'm running company. I just I can devote time to it and if there's someone else in my community that lives you know three or four blocks Fox away. That is a great guy I can you know even hang out with and grab puffy and he's cashing cooking. You know I I want that guy to have an opportunity to start his own business. I mean that's great so I think that's what's so exciting about a lot of these these new companies that are getting started. You know they're providing opportunities to people that might not have had access assistant otherwise yeah yeah why this is. I I could talk about this for a while but I recognize. We're getting to the end of your workday there on the east coast host and of course. I want you to to go and be with your family.
