Fresh update on "cabinet" discussed on Glenn Beck

"News. I'm JT well, Joe Biden moving forward with selecting his Cabinet members. Not gonna be such an easy go of things. Joining us now to talk a bit more about this. Boyd Matheson, who was a political analyst, been with us before. Also the former chief of staff to Senator Mike Lee Boyd. Welcome back in Hey, Always great to be with you. J t. Well, I gotta tell you right out of the gate. Here we go, Tom Cotton says. Forget about near attending that happening. No chance that that person is gonna be there as far as the White House budget office that all of this confirmation process is a bit tedious back and forth every time a new president comes in. What do you think This one's gonna be a bit worse because of what they did to our president Trump back in when he was brought in. I think I think the 2016 2017 confirmation. Here is the hearings. For then President Elect Donald Trump will will be a preview of coming attractions for what the president elect Joe Biden is going to experience in the coming days. I do think some of those names that he has floated out there. Have been strategic trial balloons. Not really so much travel is but a strategic. Let's call him Pignon tas Neera Tanden, for example, nominating her as a director to the office of Management and Budget Budget. Uh, that is gonna be one of those that is just not going to happen. Yeah. And what this does is it actually provides President Elect Joe Biden some cover He can then say to the liberal left. Hey, we tried. We went after Neera Tanden to put her in a spot. And you know what those awful rotten Republicans just aren't gonna let that happen. So it actually allows Joe Biden to then move more to some more centrist and practical tactical folks that he does want they have in the Cabinet. S so a few of these really are sort of the sacrificial Pignon is, uh, to say to the left. Hey, we tried. We tried that We tried to give you one solid. But it's just not happening this time around you or do you think that that could only play out through the selection of his Cabinet members trying to get him through the confirmation process, but maybe through his entire tenure? As ah, more moderate president what they're so much pressure from the crazy Socialist left the squad and AOC and the gang that Hey, look, if we don't get control of the Senate's You know, I'm there's only so much I can do kids. Uh, it kind of gives him a bit of a relief, right? Yes, That's right, Jake. You nailed it, And we're gonna hear that over and over and over again, Joe Biden. Natural inclination is going to be more towards the center. However, you have to remember that his vice president Huh? Kamila Harris is going to want to push things further to the left. And here's a great example of this JT when when the administration rolled out their new communications team. Most of whom are very qualified people. I would disagree with politically and from a policy standpoint, but they're professional communicators, so they get that. But the selection No one's talking about that is stunning to make. It's Simone Sanders to head communications for Bice. President elect Harris remembers. Simone Sanders was the national spokesperson for Bernie Sanders from 2016 and tell part way through the 2020 cycle. When it was clear Bernie wasn't going to win, And so she's just over to the Biden campaign. She is one who has her own agenda. Ji is used to being a personality and someone was a cause. And it's gonna be very hard for her to take a back seat even to her boss, the vice president elect, But I think Gee, I don't think she last long in that role because I think she will create such tension between the Vice president's office and the president's office. That's just not going toe last because she will try to drive everything. So it's about her, and it's about the liberal left really having center stage and that's not going to be comfortable for the Biden administration that I think you're going to see challenges there early on, even in January. Well, let's talk about the Kamala Harris, Joe Biden chemistry or lack thereof. I mean, she is ah, different, You know, person in her personality. As you said, she's A bit of an ego centric, and I think, also wanting the spotlight. She's got her own agendas. How much that will be a problem for Joe Biden and secondly, how long before the DNC says, Look, just play ball, Kamila, We're gonna get you in there. Sooner or later. He doesn't have much longer with his health, so we'll get him out before the end of the four years. Just sit tight. Yeah, I'm sure she will be regularly reminded that she was plucked out of the Senate to take this spot and you should be very happy for it. And you should wait her turn. I think that will be a regular communication coming across from the DNC folks. Tioga Harris. Part of the administration. I also think it's going to be very fascinating to watch and see, you know, just how that tension evolve. There's always a little tension between the VP's office in the president's office. That's normal. But the thing that you have to watch, especially in this environment. Is does she creates space for the Republicans to say? Look, this is this is the crazy agenda over here. We're we're okay to work on some of these other things that were all too happy to work with a Joe Manchin. A song was actually with with that. Well, let's not forget she did not win the Democratic nomination for the presidency. So there is a reason for that on the Democrat side of things as well. All right, But I appreciate you. We will have your back. Thank you so much. For being with us this morning. Once again, Boyd Mathis and Great stuff. Thanks, Boyd. Thanks, Shakey.

NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights

"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.

Coronavirus Stimulus Talks Moving in Right Direction, Party Leaders Say

"This morning Democrats getting behind a scaled back stimulus toe. Try to restart talks for more. We're joined by Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller, professor Good to have you on with us this morning of morning where it seems like stimulus hopes. Spring eternal. But how much hope do you put in Speaker Pelosi in minority leader Schumer backing this bipartisan legislation that was worth about $900 billion it was put forward this week. Good morning, agent. Well, I mean, I think that they recognize that the you know the whole country is being hit really hard by this, but that they're the areas that are you know, traditional sport of Democrats are getting hit again really hard, and they had wanted direct aid for states and cities. They couldn't get it from Trump. They're not going to get from Senate Republicans. So basically someone like Durban and represents Illinois Big City like Chicago has to make a decision system Majority Minority Leader and them hard party and say, all right, we gotta get something you know if we you know, we especially unemployment, either top off or extension or some combination of those things on. I think the Democrats want to get what they can and not turn this into the first battle that Biden have the face once he's inaugurated. Is this about the pandemic, getting to the level that it's at now? Or is this a dose of political reality, given how the election turned out for the house, particularly with Democrats losing seats in November? I do think that the Democrats are not looking at a scenario that they hope to be looking at come January, which was a majority Democratic Senate and then picking up more seats in the house, where they could really, you know, right from ticket with Biden, so given that that's out the window. Even if the Democrats take one or two of US Georgia seats that's still not really a likely scenario you can control the Senate, barely. I have a very razor thin margin in the house now for the Democrats, So yeah, it's a political reality. But I think it's also about what they hope Biden can achieve What becomes president and taking one really big thing off the table before he starts that job, and I think that's a big incentive for them because then they could turn to things like infrastructure, which would also help the economy. Well, what's your sense of what President Biden could achieve. Given the realities of what Senate control is gonna look like either way, depending on how the Georgia run offs turned out, it's going to be a razor thin margin, no matter which way you slice it, and the president elect has said. Whatever gets past if something gets past, but during this lame duck session is going to be a down payment. For something much bigger. Well, right. I mean, this is what you know. Obama wanted a much bigger stimulus than he got in 2009 as well, and he had all three chambers. It's a very hard thing, particularly with it, you know, $3 trillion deficit and rising. So I mean, I just think one of the key factors. Both parties were looking at Tau look towards 2022. Because that's where both parties are looking right now, at least in the Congress side is that suburban voters were willing to split their ticket. And very noticeable voted Republican straight down the line voted for Joe Biden and maybe because it in like Trump. We don't know for sure, but they were willing to do that and then vote for Republicans in other offices, knowing that they're willing to do that means that they're up for Gramps, and I think that's the serve Achilles heel for the Republicans in blocking everything for Biden. I don't think they think they can do that and still safely hold onto the seats they want to defend in 2022, so that's where Biden and the Democrats have a bit of a bargaining advantage. In trying to get moderate proposal through that will help Cove it will help the economy will make suburban voters happy. I'm curious to get your take on how Biden has been starting to fill out his cabinet. Now. There are reports that he plans to announce his health team next week, and one of the names were hearing for health and human services. Secretary is someone that you're familiar with in your home state of Rhode Island Governor Gina Rowe Mondo That Gina Romano has done in an outstanding job in a very small state, but a very, very heavily densely populated state. So she's been dealing with sort of a big outbreak for a long time It subsided. Then it came back. She's been excellent communications and made some missteps very early on in terms of summer management with nursing homes, as other governors did, but generally speaking, has had very high approval ratings and has been thought to make this situation much better than it would have. Then, so she shown leadership in a very stressful time, And she's also communicated really well about why she's doing what she's doing. And I think any pick for HHS secretary has to be an excellent communicator because you have to basically explain the American people why we're doing what we're doing, and when we're doing it, and she's been doing that so consistently, and then it helps bring her state's not complete compliance. Bring her state along in a way that's been relatively successful. Are you surprised at all that, at least so far, we haven't heard any names of Democratic primary opponents on any of Biden's Cabinet shortlists. Well, he can't take. I mean, really. He just can't take anybody out of the Senate. Right? So that takes worn out that takes Sanders out. I know Sanders. People are very disappointed about that on. I think that's what Bernie was hoping for debris Sanders was hoping for, but you just can't take a Democrat out of the Senate. Even the Democratic government still can't do it right now, so that makes sense to me. I think people usually think people wanted him to get something he may still get something There's been talk about veterans affairs. But remember, you know, the Republicans have been relatively accepted to buy these choices so far, except for one choice. Neera Tanden for O M B. I think that's going to hit some some bumps along the way. Probably big bumps. But generally speaking, he wants a smooth Cabinet confirmations, You know process. So anybody who's super politicized more to the left of Biden for a top job. It's just probably out of the question, given the composition of the Senate. Only about 30 seconds left here. Do you think Attorney General Bar is on borrowed time after the voter fraud allegations from President Trump? I think during her borrow, looked ahead to the future and decided does he want to leave the Trump administration with any shred of credibility? And I think this move was designed to show that he wouldn't be try to leave with credibility and confirm the election knowing he's gonna leave anyway. And, you know, thinking about what's next so that he gets fired doesn't get fired. I think what he did was forward thinking for him. Not Miss Ellie and President Trump. Thank you Always could have you on with us. Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller with us this morning on

"Wayne Cabinet 8 45 families are three things to know this morning. Denmark, the European Union's biggest oil producer, is going to stop offering new licenses in the North Sea, a decision that expects will resonate around the world. To breaking news about a shootout involving federal marshals and a suspect in the shooting of a state trooper on Cape Cod. Last week. It came to a head this morning in the Bronx in a hail of bullets. Several marshals were hit or otherwise injured. Three of them we understand that are expected to survive. The suspect is dead. Third thing. Dr Anthony Fauci, the man the nation has turned to for answers during the covert pandemic is going to stick around. We know that because CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett got that information. He broke the news yesterday and Major joins us Live major. Good morning. Morning, Wayne, How are you? Good. Hey, listen to you also almost caused an international incident, didn't you? Yeah, yes, And everyone on WCBS is gonna listen to it tonight because you can hear the full show. The thing I love is you know about my show is there's no editing. We never added the guest. We have to edit anything for time. It's me that ends up on the cutting room floor, Never the guests, So there's never Ah postgame conversation about While I was taken out of context, the context is clear. I said Why would the Brits first in giving emergency approval to the fighter vaccine, and Dr Fauci said they basically ran the marathon the way cheaters do you show up for the last mile and jump ahead of everybody? By that, he said about his words, not mine. They basically took the data from the clinical trials that Speiser conducted and accepted them without going through a step by step. Checking process of everything that they asserted in their clinical trial summations, which is what the FDA does essentially what Dr Fauci said, is the truth. But it rankled the Brits and the sense tried to walk it back and apologize. But he was blunt, much more blunt than I expected him to be. And his words are crystal clear on this. The process is different. He considers ours better and that the Brits took shortcuts his words, not mine. So I guess the key thing is that we all need to have confidence in the vaccine once it comes around once it is approved by the FDA here in this country, And I guess Dr Fauci is gonna leave that role. He's going to try. He said He will take the vaccine on camera, and he said he was glad that presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama will do the same. He also said something I think is very important for people to hear and listen to and look for, I said We talked to other experts, Dr Paolucci, they said in the end, based based leaders and community leaders are going to be as important, if not more important than public health officials in building acceptance to this vaccine, he said. Absolutely. Sit in the end. It could be your priest. Your rabbi. Your imam, Your pastor who could be most important in helping you work through any anxiety may have about a vaccine, and there's gonna be a concerted push to reach out to just those kind of trusted community leaders as this vaccine wolves across the country. Major Garrett unedited, uncut, at least to his guest is not. It's a nine o'clock tonight on the take out, major. Thank you. Thank you. Sponsored not by your local Lexus dealer..

"Of this fraud. This is not say, well, he thought it was civil. Lawyers for the president and his allies have asked judges in several states to take the drastic and unprecedented step of setting aside President elect Joe Biden's wins. They've filed new cases involved. Press on with appeals. Meanwhile, Biden says it's important that the president attend his inauguration on Lee in the sense that it would demonstrate the nation's commitment to a peaceful transfer of power. President's aides have expressed skepticism that the president would attend the January 20th inauguration. President Trump has continued to Claim victory. Speaking Thursday to CNN, Biden said it's up to the president, but he would prefer that he be there. I think it would Important only in one sense.

"His transition moves and the key Cabinet posts get a little resistance and people saying not a chance, but Your thoughts on where we are now and who's up for these posts? Well, you know, it has been a pretty diverse group that Joe Biden has put out there so far. But Jen, he's facing increasing pressure here from the congressional Hispanic Caucus. The end of the deep that want to see even Maura of a minority influence, especially when it comes to some of these remaining critical posts that have yet to be filled with in the Cabinet here. Including defense secretary health and human services, and, of course, the Justice Department, which would be the attorney general. Yesterday there was a virtual meeting between the transition team and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. They called it They called it diplomatic but tense. Also, the wants to see more of a people of color in these positions as well. Now there are some candidates. That are better have been named for each of these post here, But it just goes to show that you know. Joe Biden is also under some pressure here to really placate a lot of people heading into what what could be the next administration. I've got a couple of nominations for him. How about Conda? Lisa Rice or Candace Owens? Do you think those neighbors name means might make the list for Jo e? Don't see him? Yeah. I don't see him on any list. Be good. I think conduct Condoleeza Rice, I think would be fantastic. I don't care what your Democrat or Republican, you know, I'd put her in there. Sure, Sure. Well, you know, in Candace songs, and I kind of joke about that, But I'll tell you what. It might behoove Biden to put somebody on there like that. That's a conservative, Republican and outspoken and very smart and articulate, Ah, woman of color to give some balance and and also, you know, to kind of conversations with Joe Biden about Listen, I'm gonna give you my opinion on the other side of this thing. So you know, he can appeal to more people if he's gonna be there, you know? Yeah. I think it might actually be a positive thing. Yeah. Yeah, And, you know, Joe Biden himself said he was going into this. It was not ruling out the possibility of some Republicans being part of the part of the Cabinet. We haven't seen that yet. But I'm with you there Some cases where you might say Yeah. And you know what? I want somebody in here. That's going to give me that opposing view to s O weaken. Try to balance everything out. Can't stand that little crazy Socialist left bubble. You live in Joan. All right. Well, let's talk about what's happening in Georgia in the Senate races and the Oh my gosh, the battle down there still Aziz you know, Pennsylvania still going from No, no, no, no. From the three judges there, maybe to the Supreme Court on the mail in ballots situation when you talk little bit more about that at 6 40, But you know Georgia, same thing. I mean, there's all kinds of money coming in here for the runoff. Yeah, And there's more evidence Well, not evidence. But there's more testimony going out anyway, about some things that may have happened during the election. But, yeah, it's a hot spot. There's no doubt about it. We've seen rallies this week. Sidney Powell and Linwood. Those trump backing attorneys were there this week. Today we will see vice president Pence in Savannah, as well as former President Obama will conduct a virtual rally. And then you're the big guy goes down there tomorrow. President Trump is going to be in Valdosta. Now all this is in advance of those special Senate races, which will happen on January 5th. And of course, this will determine control of the Senate. However, Republican officials in Georgia are a little jittery, JT because they're not sure What the president is going to do. Will he go down and pump up the Republican candidates David Perdue and Kelly Leffler, Or will he continue to bash the election system and Georgia bash the Republican governor and secretary of state and continue to say that the election was stolen from him in him in a rigged election? If he does that? It could actually dissuade Republican voters from voting in the special election, fearing that it's it's a predetermined rigged election anyway. Yeah, You're right. It does rub some people, including Republicans. Ah, little bit abrasive and wrong that the president still throwing all this out there and not really just saying Okay, let's move on. Now. I'm I'm on board with the president fighting all the way till tooth and nail and not conceding this election. I'm one that believes that there was problems with this year's election with this mail in balloting. You know people fixing things the machines. All of this, I think still needs to be looked at, and I know it really bring the proof. J t. That's why these judges they're saying no, you know, but still I think if he does go down there and continues to stir it up on that side of the fence, as opposed to endorsing and really promoting the candidates, Yeah, it could maybe have a little backlash and people go. You know what? I'm not voting Republican when you're so I hope you didn't Yeah, And and, of course, J T. There's also and this is something that Sidney Powell and Lin Wood said this week at a rally that they're on board with the call to boycott this special election by Republicans, which would be the worst idea ever because that would hand the Senate to the Democrats. But you add that into the mix here, and it makes it even more complicated there in Georgia. All right, buddy. Appreciate you have a good weekend. Bill Zimpfer. Thanks for the update. We'll talk Monday morning, all right, on the way Next, Biden and a couple of other former presidents Bush Obama Clinton, I'll say, Give me a vaccine, the latest on that and what's happening with the code vaccine distribution.

Matthew biden's cabinet picks they get a lot of attention. We're obviously covering them here on the show but are they the most important people who are going to serve in the administration. No i mean the way. The american government works in the modern era is that it is a very much white house driven process and the senior staff in the white house matter more in terms of driving actual policy. The high profile of the cabinet has actually become a reason that the cabinet matters less right so presidents are making their cabinet selections with one eye on senate confirmation with one eye on maintaining their internal domestic coalition with one eye. On what kind of media stories are we going to write like. What are we going to say about the cabinet. And that means that the question of do i president elect biden. Actually want to listen to this person's advice is like maybe fourth on the list of considerations that are made worse. When you see. Somebody like steve kerr keti get a completely amorphous. Job as counselor to the president. That means that joe biden really wants to hear what that guy has to say. His job has no specific responsibilities so that he doesn't get yelled at but like he's going to be there right like right down the hall and he could have just not done it. There's no need to appoint somebody to a job like that. It doesn't even pay that well but the people who get those senior staff jobs wield a lot of influence particularly if they are seen as being close personally to the president. So which are the positions that really matter a lot here. Are we talking white house. Staff like chief of staff or are we talking about sort of these informal advisory roles. You eat all matters a but but the chief of staff is by far the most important person in government. The chief of staff is like the co president. He can call up anybody in the government anywhere and say. Hey what's up and your understanding. Is that the president is speaking to you. There's no specific statutory authority. But it's a really big deal so another white house position that people don't talk about that much but has a lot of power is the office of management and budget the nba. We call it. The office of management and budget is one of the most important parts of the white house because they take every ask every request for money or to kill a program that any agency has and they sort through it and they decide what actually goes in the president's official budget request and it's the director typically who decides who's causes get fought for and whose get sort of abandoned on the cutting room floor also contains an office called the office of information and regulatory affairs and they sort of review every proposed regulation from throughout the government and decide whether or not it meets cost benefit scrutiny. So it's like a cliche to call that an obscure but powerful office but it is obscure and it is super powerful. is it almost like the more obscure the role. The more powerful. Because it's just the reason they're being chosen for their expertise not for any of these other characteristics. Well there's something to be said for that. The obscurity increases power. Because it means you're really picking the guy you want. I would just say that proximity to the president of the united states is a really big deal. Any big deal calls need to run through the oval office and your ability to be in those oval office. Conversations is really really integral to your ability to influence policy. A cabinet secretary is more likely to be the public face of a policy. Somebody who's on television to talk about the issue under your area rather than someone who actually decides something controversial thinking about this argument. That cabinet positions are less powerful than these white house staff. I mean i think about elizabeth warren who wanted to be treasury secretary or bernie. Sanders wanted to be labor secretary. I mean if they actually wanted to influence policy more would they wanna be informal advisers to the president or or head of omb. so i think for. Sanders is a big believer in the power of sort of grassroots mobilization. And so in that sense being a cabinet secretary in theory could let him. You know barnstorm. The country as labor secretary at standing with workers organizing strike. Something like that. At least that's like his mental vision of it in practice though. If you're the labor secretary and you doing stuff that makes the president mad you get a call from some flunky tony to knock it off so i never really thought that made sense. You know the warren for treasury secretary thing that was about progressives asking biden to commit to a certain kind of left wing economic policy putting warren in there at treasury would have been a simple more than a practical kind of thing. I don't wanna say that treasury secretaries are unimportant but their importance hinges on whether or not the president really has confidence in them. So we were talking before about about tony. Blinken who i think if he becomes secretary of state. I think we'll be one of the most influential secretaries of state we've had in decades because he really is a confidante of joe biden's which is not going to be the case of the typical cabinet secretary and under the trump administration. You know some of the most important people of the most influential people where people without these particular position someone like yard kushner. Who had this sort of vague senior adviser title and ended up leading the peace deals in the middle east. I mean is biden going to be having this sort of close informal circle of advisers. Who wheeled all this influence you know. A biden is going to have a more professional process. There is no son-in-law's in his senior team. But i think the example of stephen miller who probably if you listen to today do you know who he is aware that he's an influential trump. Figure if you try to stop for fifteen seconds and say what. His job right. Nobody knows he's just like some guy who's in the white house and he's very important because the president trusts him and he takes the lead role on immigration policy and that matters a lot like people will emerge from the biden white house who run certain portfolios and do certain kinds of things there will probably be somebody picked specifically to be like kovic czar and that will be there tidal. But there's gonna be lots of other issue areas where it's not quite as formalized as that but we understand that. This person is running this policy area. The white house is the central nerve hub of the government and it's up to the president in a sort of free form way to assign responsibilities to his senior staff there and anybody who has the title of assistant to the president. That's like the highest.

"cabinet" Discussed on Today, Explained

"The economy years we've covered will have to deal with deficit to get them under control. But now is the time when i think it's not necessary to worry about it. For secretary of homeland security. My father and mother brought me to this country to escape communism. They cherished our democracy. And we're intensely proud to become united states citizens as was then. There are the nominees for white house. Staff we've seen near a tannin pick run office of management and budget. Cecilia rouse to run council of economic advisers. And probably most important of all. Ron claimed to be white house chief of staff matthew mcglesias co host of the weeds. Podcast author of the slow boring newsletter. Before we get to biden's cabinet picks what do we know about. Ron clain biden's nominee for white house. Chief of staff. He worked in the clinton white house. He was a staffer. There he came to be al gore's chief of staff then. He was brought on by biden when he became vice-president so claimed that he left government than president obama brought him back in to be the kind of bola czar during that crisis and so it was very fortuitous to biden that he had this very experienced advisor who specifically also had experience with pandemic fighting the fact that matters. The trump administration has a history of failure in dealing with the cova crisis including a dramatic and drastic failure on the testing challenge. And so i think just you know the the trump administration positions. We're just supposed to trust them the going to work out. I think that's a hard sell to the american people and that became sort of big part of claims brand. While he was out of government. He talked a lot he wrote for. Vox about pandemic preparedness. Clean justice somebody who is liked by both the more progressive and more moderate wings of the party. he's not clearly aligned with either but he gets along with a lot of people everybody feels that he is fair minded and listens to them and they have confidence that they can get sort of a strong hearing in a white house process that he runs. Okay let's move to the cabinet and focus on three of the big ones that have been announced recently secretary of state secretary of the treasury and secretary of homeland security. Let's start with secretary of state. What do we know about tony. Blinken so blinken is in line if he's ultimately confirmed to be. I think one of the most influential secretaries of state that we've seen because there's often a split in the foreign policy domain between the prestige of the secretary of state's office and the reality that the secretary of state is often somebody like. Hillary clinton became secretary of state as a gesture of respect. On barack obama's part she was not a close advisor of his. however lincoln was biden's foreign policy adviser national security adviser when he was vice president. He worked for him in senate. He's worked on all of his presidential campaigns. So we're going to have a secretary of state who has the formal powers of office with a genuine relationship with the president of the united states. He also has a a band in dc. It's called abe lincoln fantasy father. Somebody abe lincoln. Yeah it's it's a pun name so you know he's he's an interesting character and is blinking kind of a conciliatory choice. Here i mean. I know that susan rice was named being talked about and she's obviously been the focus of lots of criticism from the republicans is lincoln someone. That's more confirmable. That's the intention here. I think if democrats had done better in the senate races there would have been a lot of pressure to give the job to susan rice. Who was national security advisor was. Un ambassador is an african american woman. She was really sort of next in line for it and it would have helped biden on his his goal to assemble the most diverse cabinet republicans. Really don't like her. They're dug in on the idea that she did something wrong. At benghazi so the strong gop position there would have made it challenging for her to be confirmed it also gave biden probably a pretext to do what he personally would have preferred anyway Which is give the job to somebody. He has a close personal relationship with like lincoln. So the idea is for him to be a confirmable choice But he has taken some criticism from senate republicans for some of his consulting work out of office. I mean you look at what they put up with from the trump family. I don't think you would say that's a real reason for republicans to criticize him but if they want an excuse to vote against him or block him they could seize on that. How about the second those three cabinet positions secretary of the treasury. Remind me about janet yellen so janet yellen used to be chair of the federal reserve before that. She chaired the council of economic advisers. She will be the first woman to serve treasury secretary. She was the first woman to chair the fed. She'll be the first person of any gender identity to have this kind of triple crown of economics. She has a reputation as probably being more progressive than she actually is she has i would just go to conventional centrists st kind of opinions on fiscal policy. Spend more now perhaps spend less later so there could be some tension with the left there. She's also seen by progressives though as more aggressive on financial regulation than a lot of other people who've been in the mix she sort of threw the book at wellsfargo as fed chair for some of the shenanigans. They got caught with so there is a hope from the left that she will be tough on that tough on the bank regulation i think one of the areas where biden is somewhat maybe privately critical of the obama administration is that he thinks that it would have been better if nothing else is a matter of show to like crackdown on some some bankers and like show that you could channel the peoples anger at the great recession both biden and yellen. I think would be more supportive of harsh measures against financial industry actors. That sort of go astray than the old obama. Geithner team was okay. Let's hit the third big cabinet position secretary of homeland security. Who's alejandro so hundred. My orcas he was deputy secretary at the end of the obama administration before that he was in charge of legal immigration. He was us attorney before that. He is himself an immigrant from cuba. There's a lot of thorny questions and immigration policy not a lot of agreement between the parties. So you know he should be confirmable. He was confirmed twice before for immigration related posts and is merica someone that is acceptable to say the more moderate and progressive wings of the democratic party has not taken much criticism from immigration activists. So obama in his first term especially he actually boosted deportations to the highest levels on record as part of sort of long-term political strategy. That didn't work. He was the chief. Yes it is a fair amount of anger among immigration advocates for the architects of that policy. They don't seem to feel that. My orcas is responsible for that Nor have republicans. Particularly held him accountable. At which is he's a low key guy. If you remember the obama years you probably do not remember ali. My orcas being a big public facing the administration. So that's sort of what the doctor ordered. He's both experienced but a little bit low key and their hope they can sort of thread the needles there and looking at these nominations. As a whole you know. What do they tell you about how biden's planning to run. His administration biden is placing a lot of value on experience. A lot of new presidents are with the idea that they're outsiders who are going to drain the swamp or fix broken washington politics. Joe biden does not fit that bill very well. He is not an outsider at all He's the absolute opposite of that. He was himself a senior white house. Staffer and the very recent past because trump was only there for one term. He'd literally no is all the people who served in the.

Hi, Asma. Hi there. Okay. So Biden has already unveiled its foreign policy. National security teams. What is he turning to this week? Well.

So what this means is that he will likely begin to have his first in person National Security briefings next week. Hey, will likely begin receiving the president's daily brief on Monday. And, you know, typically, the incoming president would receive classified intelligence briefings. Just so that they have a sense of you know what they're stepping into into the White House.

Trump Takes Questions From Reporters For 1st Time Since Election Day

"Doing something he hasn't done in weeks yesterday on Thanksgiving, President Trump capped off Thanksgiving by calling members of the military stationed away from home. But then, for the first time in three weeks, he took questions from reporters about the election. The president criticized President elect Joe Biden for starting to select a Cabinet and he did not say if he would attend the inauguration in just 54 days. I know one thing, Joe Biden did not get 80 million votes, and I got 74. Million. But there were many ballots thrown away. So I got much more than that. But I got 74,000,074 million is 11 million more than I got last time. And if you look at the numbers, the numbers are false. The numbers they're corrupt. It was a rigged election. 100% more states air certifying their results as the trump legal team continues to fight. All disputes will need to be resolved before December, 8th.

"There are so many lessons can be learned from product launches especially companies that have a lot of time and money and resources to do it so so well and sony is really good at this and i learned a ton in this process of just observing them. I got one more takeaways. I wanna share with you and this one is a controversial one. The sony playstation design actual design void. Looks as a machine is pretty much. The opposite of what microsoft did with their new console the xbox series x the series x is a box. basically it's a black box sort of in a tower shape and you can stand upright you put on a side almost looks like a sub woofer right and you can just plop it in your entertainment center and a cabinet. You could stowed away and it could be really you know discreet. Lisa shouldn't five design is wild in some ways got sticking out. You can't just put this in a cabinet. Some chemists just won't fit. You have to actually put on top of your Entertainment center or right next year tv and from what i read. This is intentional. Places actually wants you to show off the console. They want you to put it in plain sight. Want people to see it when they come over your house and ask you. What is that and they say. Oh that's a playstation five. They understand the power of word of mouth marketing. They know it's so powerful that they're even willing to do a wild design. That's actually not really practical. But they know that because it's such a good system you're just going live with the fact that you have to put it next year tv it's mostly white it sticks out. It's the opposite of what microsoft did with the xbox series x which just just again a black box so don't be afraid to stand out with your products and services whether it's with your copy or imagery or even your videos people remember you.

President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back.

Biden can start accessing presidential daily briefing as transition gets underway

"All right, let's talk some election challenges in transition activity. Take it away. Yeah, let's start with the transition activity, which is underway. We know that. As of Monday, the General Services Administration informed President elect Joe Biden at the Trump administration was ready to begin the formal transition process, which in essence is their first step in admitting that President Trump didn't win the Joe Biden did, and we're beginning the process of getting the power and information to the hands of the person that should be taking over come January 20th. So that is, at least to this point in time. We're hearing underway Joe Biden's transition team now talking with all federal agencies. And with that A part of this transition also includes having the ability to access additional office space inside those agencies and the ability to use federal dollars for background checks on Biden's White House staff appointments as well as Cabinet picks, and it also opens the door for Joe Biden. To have the access to the cove in 19 data vaccine vaccine distribution plans and also get the presidential daily briefing. So all of that supposedly began yesterday is going through today here as well. And the interesting part about that is that while that's all underway, President Trump is still saying he is refusing to concede and that he is going to continue to fight. S O yesterday morning. He tweeted that there would be a big lawsuit that would be filed soon. Now we don't know what that lawsuit is. But the president says he's moving full steam ahead still full steam ahead. Now. Today, they're scheduled to be in Pennsylvania Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, meeting that Rudy Giuliani scheduled that is supposed to kind of clarify where things stand in regards to these elections suits that have gone on. We know that when you're just looking at the track record right now, there's only about three active cases remaining right now, out of all of the other cases. They haven't filed a case that the law team for President Trump since November 18th. So all of the lawsuits came between Election Day on November 18th. And since then, the flurry of lawsuits really kind of all concluded bloom. Daddy only three left in one of those, for instance, in Michigan is just all about there being rejected. Defective, improper fire. Wait, That's something that generally you fix real quick. Send it back to the courts and begin the process of hearing that case That hasn't happened with President Trump's legal team. We don't know why was it a mistake? Was it something that planning on doing But we do know that there might be an announcement today after Pennsylvania had their certification of votes yesterday. There might be an announcement today. They're in Gettysburg as to what the next move is going to be for the legal team. In Pennsylvania. I was watching an interview with Alan Dershowitz. And, of course, the Allens Ah, liberal attorney. Very, very bright. He said that the president probably had his best legal footing in Pennsylvania with two or three angles. But so far that really has not come to fruition is you kind of pointed out? Yeah, it's been a situation where you had 19 cases filed by the campaign. 15 have already been denied or dismissed by judges or withdrawn from the campaign itself. Most of that is coming from lack of substantial evidence of voter fraud to back up the claim, so what's left is Not a lot, and also not a lot of time Bloom, Daddy because you're going to have come the 14th of December which, as we're just looking at that calendars here, Thanksgiving wraps up and then they come. Everybody comes back to town. November 30th. The next days. December 1st you've got till December 14th to have electors from each state meet to formally nominate the next president. So if you're going to try to get a legal something battle in you start and finish it before December 14th in order to have any effect on it. Have a sign of that is if you're just trying to work the angle of getting electors to make a decision independent of the state. They represent an independent of the votes that were cast in that state that you also have two weeks to try to get that done here. So I don't know what's going to be able to get done. But these next two weeks between now and December, 14th will be interesting to see cause that will kind of finalize any final nails in the confident you will of the 2020 election.

Julin Castro, a 2020 presidential contender, on why Joe Biden beat him and Trump

"Secretary hulan castro. Thank you very much for coming on the podcast with you before we get to the topic that we are here to talk about what i wanted to talk about. You want to talk about. And that is the latino vote in twenty twenty. We gotta talk about the biden transition and what you're in for. Do you wanna go back into a presidential administration. But that's his decision. Of course it's his decision. Yeah but. I've said that i'm open to that. I haven't taken anything off the table. Have anything on the table. I haven't had any conversations with the transition team with with the president-elect about that. But the thing that i do know and i can tell already from the names that have been put out there for different positions. Is that the team. He's assembling spectacular one. And it's going to be so much more competent effective than what we've seen over the last four years it goes without saying you know for years ago. Donald trump promised everybody that he would surround himself with the best people and then couldn't be that could have been further from the truth. Joe biden is actually surrounding himself with some of this people out there. Whether it's the folks were up for treasury or a g or any number physicians. And so whether i'm part of that or not what. I have confidence in what matters most to people is that these are going to be very competent. Effective folks okay. I'm going to continue to put you on the spot. And in president obama's administration in the second term you were the secretary of housing and urban development. So let's just take that off the table. When i go back to to where you were before dream job dream scenario. Just forget that. Joe biden kamla. Harris are gonna be the next president vice president of the united states. What would be the dream job. In a presidential administration. I was running for president. Of course they make good people. I would do hampshire saw otherwise and rightly so in twenty. But yeah i mean. I'm going to leave all of those conversations to the transition team. That's uniquely decision. And so i feel like i'm going to continue to use my voice in any way that i can on the issues and the vision that i pressed forward in the presidential campaign. A lot of that vision is shared. I think with adults Biden and vice president-elect terrorists but was find a way to serve anyway. I can't even if it's only in according break candidates for office up down the ballot which i was happy to do in twenty twenty so transportation there Yeah there any of those roles for people that are interested in public service or great role all right and then i was only pressing on labor and transportation. And you didn't give me a chance to keep going down the list. Because i mean let's not forget. Therefore you ran for president. Before secretary of housing and urban development. You were a mayor. Yeah yeah you were the mayor of san antonio. So it's not. It's not out of the realm of the possible that those two agencies would be something of interest may be an ambassadorship. The world food program in rome. I mean there are lots of things but we'll just leave that alone. We'll leave it alone. I feel like that. This is an exciting time for a lot of people that want to surge. And we'll see what happens. I love pressing. You folks who are you know on the precipice of possibly joining the cabinet tried to watch you squirm but let's talk about something that you actually can talk about and want to talk about. And that is the latino. Vote in the twenty twenty election as i said before. I am fascinated by what happened. Talked to me from your perspective about what happened in the twenty twenty election. These the latino vote. Well overall the a latino vote was still a very important and impactful part of the democrat coalition and you could see that most notably in wins in arizona nevada. You did a community like georgia. You know where. There's been a growing latino community over the last decade or so so overall. Very positive the turnout. Rate among latinos was higher than it was in two thousand sixteen like it was for all other hurricanes so that was very positive. Obviously you also had some of these areas of the country where democrats did performed as well as i would have wanted them to or anybody would have wanted to. That was ruining for joe biden and democrats. I think of miami dade county for instance in florida. Yeah so let's go through each area so in miami dade county in florida. What were the dynamics. There that made the turn out on behalf of joe biden. Not what democrats hoped. it would be. Well you probably heard this term monolithic right more in the last two or three weeks two weeks since the election having last year

"Fighting followed by the signing of a peace treaty between the two sides the soviets had taken eleven percent of the country for itself. Finish soldiers saw a chance to get their territory back the following year. As hitler's german soldiers moved in they joined forces with the nazis. Though they wanted no part in the holocaust all they wanted was their land back unfortunately even with the germans behind them. The finns weren't strong enough to fend off. The soviets nazis retreated and finland was left to face the red army on its own. Most soldiers saw the writing on the wall. There was no way they would survive another war against the soviet union but some men pressed on despite the odds one. Such soldier was twenty-seven-year-old aimo koivu march eighteenth of nineteen forty four. Koivu was making some tea for his unit. He and his men had settled in for a cup to warm themselves amid the freezing winter air when gunshots rang out around them. Quite who had been placed on ski patrol that day sped away from the soviet incursion gaining on his tail. He skied for hours keeping his distance until he could find safer ground but they kept coming. Luckily he had a secret weapon in his pockets. It was a little pill called bitten. German soldiers were known to take it for an energy boost to keep fighting. There were downsides however those who took the drug often experienced wild hallucinations some even died from the side effects pervan was less like adrenaline and more like a primitive version of crystal. Meth voted hesitated. He had never taken this stuff before. But as enemy soldiers encroached on his position he was left with fewer options for survival. Someone called out for him to keep going don't slowdown. They said so. He shoved his hand into his pocket and pulled out the bottle. He couldn't grasp the single pill with his hand restricted by his mitten so he dumped the bottle out into his palm and swallowed everything that fell out thirty pills. The effects were almost immediate. He raced ahead his exhaustion. A thing of the past koivu and had never felt better fact. He was so hopped up on that he didn't notice the russians shooting at him as he skied past them in the wrong direction. He also didn't notice the land mine that blew him off his skis and obliterated his foot with a prevent still racing through him he crawled over two hundred feet to a ditch where he waited for backup but it never came. Koivu expected that he would die. From any number of things the plummeting. Temperatures his wounds or from the lethal dose of prevent raging through his system. He spent nearly a week in that dugout subsisting on pine nuts and a bird that he cuts which he ate raw days later he pulled himself out of the ditch and set off on foot with no idea where he was going to hundred and fifty miles later he stumbled into finnish hospital which took him in and assessed his condition. He had lost considerable weight and his heart was still racing. But he'd made it aimo. Amoy vin had ingested thirty times. The recommended dose of a dangerous drug escape soviet soldiers on skis survived. A landmine explosion. Spent a week in a ditch in the freezing cold and then walked two hundred fifty miles to reach safety by all measures. He shouldn't have survived it all but aimo okoye vennen live to be seventy two years old. I guess what didn't kill him only made him stronger.

You don't build out you build it up. Real estate is at such a premium on the small island. Stores tend to be not much larger than shoe boxes office buildings on the other hand source so high they can pierce the clouds no matter the size though one thing is certain new york is always changing. Old buildings torn down to make way for new ones. While mom and pop stores of days gone by become the chain coffee shops of today for example the historic pennsylvania station which had been the beaux arts fixture of midtown manhattan since nineteen ten was demolished in nineteen sixty six. A newer more cost-efficient train station could be built in its place. A window into the past was shattered. The daily penn station came down a sign of progress and its costs but new york city was changing even before that back in nineteen ten buildings that headline the streets of greenwich village for years suddenly found themselves on the chopping block. The reason the city had become too crowded it's narrow streets needed to be widened to accommodate a new subway line. Being built underneath three hundred properties spanning eleven blocks were slated for demolition including storefronts homes and story apartment building called the voorhees. The voorheis lived at seventh avenue and christopher street and had been owned by philadelphia. Landlord named david hess hess's estates resented that the city was trying to do this and they weren't the only ones landowners from all over new york fought tooth and nail to keep their buildings intact. Petitions were signed. Lawsuits were filed but the city officials declared eminent domain and. The fight was over if new york wanted to use the land for public projects than it was well within their rights to do so. The land across those seven blocks with survey just before the buildings came down with every square inch tallied up. As part of the city's total well almost every square inch apparently the land surveyors had missed a small amount of hess's property in their survey. The voorhees apartment building was still demolished. But hess's estate was entitled to the land still owned so the city asked them if they would be kind enough to donate that land so as not to break up the work already underway his heirs bitter about how they've been treated said no. If new york wanted its new subway line it was going to have to build it around a lot fifty five the remaining parcel of land. It did not own which it did. The seventh avenue. Subway line was eventually finished. Despite the hess's ownership of lot fifty five in the late nineteen thirties. After the estate had grown tired of paying taxes on such a tiny sliver of land the property was sold for one thousand dollars to village cigars. Lot fifty four next door. It was a paltry sum for a prime slice of new york real estate even then today village cigars still occupies the corner of seventh avenue in christopher and the memory of the hess battle with the city limits on thanks to the small commemorative plaque on the sidewalk outside. It reads property of the hesse state which has never been dedicated for public purposes. Village cigars is not the smallest free standing building in new york. No that honor belongs to the one hundred. Twenty five square foot greenwich locksmiths. A few blocks away which can only accommodate one or two people inside at a time however the former has property is still technically the smallest piece of private land in the city at only twenty five inches around the see. It's all one has to do is walk to the corner of seventh avenue and christopher street in greenwich village and look down at the triangular plaque. And that's it. The plaque covers the entire property. That little act of defiance marks what remains of the hesse states former new york footprint. You might not be able to build a house on it but you can certainly admire what it represents. Twenty five inches of stubbornness run one new york city family. That refused to be bullied around now.

"At some points in everyone's life, they have someone to look up to the it could be a mother or father or an older brother or sister or even a celebrity. Often we look up people because they can do things. We can't think of the garage bands that were started after angsty teens I heard Nirvana on the radio or the kid who dove into magic because she saw David Copperfield vanished the Statue of Liberty on TV. But sometimes, we don't want to be like someone else. Sometimes, we want to be entertained by those with talents beyond our own. Like Sergei Rachmaninoff. The Russian pianist and composer was born in eighteen seventy three to a family devoted equally to both the military and music his father and officer in the Russian army played piano as did his grandfather romanoff started piano lessons of his own when he was only four years old demonstrating surprising talent for a boy, his age he was able to play sections of a piece of music from memory without error. He advanced with a piano over the next several years until his teacher Ana Ornette SCIUTTO got him into her alma mater the saint. Petersburg conservatory. He was ten years old at the time. His family suffered tragic loss during this time as two of his sisters passed away from illness and his father left the family after squandering their money. Rachmaninoff instead focused on his music. He started taking lessons with the more demanding piano teacher named Nikolai Zverev and earned a scholarship at the Moscow conservatory he had hoped to pursue composition, but very told him not to waste his time as Rachmaninoff pressed him further to allow him to compose zero cut ties with his pupil. The teacher had him live with his relatives, the satins in Moscow. These experiences and settings such as the suttons home and the surrounding countryside inspired some of the budding composers. Earliest works you went on to perform his own pieces for the teachers and staff at the conservatory. Graduating in eighteen, ninety, two with one of the highest honors ever awarded, which he'd earned for a one act opera he composed as part of his final exams. Over the next fifteen years rachmaninoff toured Russia, lost almost all of his money and continued to compose. However he was struck with a severe case of self doubt and depression after the premiere of his symphony number one in eighteen, ninety, seven, the reviews were scathing and sent Rachmaninoff into a downward spiral. Piece was never performed again. He didn't compose much after that and resort at the teaching piano privately to make money. It wasn't until he was offered a conducting job at the Moscow private Russian. Opera company where he started to compose again still he was plagued by imposter syndrome punishing himself for work he felt was never quite good enough. It didn't help many of his peers and contemporaries composers he had looked up to learn from also began to pass away at the dawn of the twentieth century. Rachmaninov's life was one of pain but not entirely, he continued to conduct, compose perform, and he even started a family. The composer eventually emigrated to the United States hoping to provide a better life as wife and children far from the war and violence that had been ravaging his home country. He performed concerts all over the US and toured Europe before signing with Victor talking machine company as a classical recording artist. Rachmaninoff settled into life in. America. Surprisingly well, a feats made easier. Thanks to men like Benjamin Kutowski Kutowski was a violinist who hailed from Chicago. He hadn't been born into a life of comfort as Rachmaninoff had but he did have some love of music. It's what carried him through school and into a life of entertainment. However instead of Grande, concert? Hall. Like Rachmaninoff was used to performing in the young Kudelski cut his teeth on Vaudeville stages for seven dollars and fifty cents. A week is talent with the Violin also earned him admiration from up and coming performers such as the Marx brothers. He played Vaudeville for quite some time as he worked his way up to a career in radio in the nineteen thirties, it always been capable violinist and that talented Kudelski guest spots on popular radio programs such as one hosted by Ed. Sullivan, he became a hit and counted among his fans. One Sergei Rachmaninov who found himself in tears every time the man played. Tears of laughter that is. izzy Kudelski realized early on that he got way more laughs. If he played his violin badly on purpose, he built his career on it and Rachmaninoff couldn't help. But cry with laughter every time he listened to his act on the radio. Except he wasn't Benjamin Kudelski back then he hadn't been for a very long time not since he had changed his name during his Vaudeville days. Audiences everywhere, including Rachmaninoff had become devout fans of radio and TV star. Jack Benny. I.

The chance to get back at an unruly customer the kind who sends their playback because they're green beans weren't hot enough or their burger was a little well done. Or if you're chef George, SPEC because the French fries you made were too thick. SPEC. Born in eighteen twenty four grew up with his sister Caroline Wicks in upstate New York.

Arts degree. Vanderbilt was a man who always got what he wanted even when it wasn't in his best interest after marrying the daughter of a prominent banker from New York guest his father's wishes he was cut out of his parents will when his father Cornelius Vanderbilt, the second passed away in eighteen ninety nine, the younger vanderbilt was given five hundred thousand dollars and the earnings from a trust fund worth over one million, the other son Alfred and clearly the favorite child inherited most of his father's seventy, million dollar estate. Still Vanderbilt. The third did well for himself. He held over thirty patents for inventions from his own making including away to improve fuel efficiency locomotives. He also helped form a company that would bring the subway systems of London and Paris to New York City though he had to work a little harder than his brother, be never forgot where he had come from an extremely wealthy and impatient family who wanted for nothing it's what made him so memorable to George SPEC. Moons was a high end establishment and Vanderbilt Eight. They're often however despite his frequent patronage, he never took the time to learn Georgia's last name whenever he asked the waiter to pass a message to the chef, he would refer to him as crumb. George didn't mind too much though remarking once that a crumb is bigger than a speck, the name stuck not only the George by chrome from that point on, he also named his first restaurant crumbs. But that wasn't the only obnoxious habits Vanderbilt's it seems that even though specs food was renowned all over Saratoga County, a certain picky young man from Concord New Hampshire always found something to complain about. According to the legend, Vanderbilt kept sending plates. Of French fries he had ordered back to the kitchen, his problem they had been cut to fix. George cooked batch after batch of fries. Each one sliced a little thinner for vanderbilt but they kept getting returned. Angered by the man's audacity SPEC tried something new instead of cutting up another potato into fries that would be set right back. He sliced into countless pieces as thin as sheets of paper Benny Fried them until they were hard and crispy in loaded them up with salt. The idea was to discuss vanderbilt into leaving at least for the day but the opposite happened vanderbilt couldn't get enough of them. Of course, the legend was just that a legend. The true story was much simpler and gave credit to the food's rightful inventor. SPEC had been in his own restaurants kitchen with his sister by his side. When a thin slice of potato she had cut fell into a pan of hot oil. She fished it out and put it on a plate. Brother happened to walk by popped into his mouth and decided that he would serve it at crumbs.

"Special dieters practice something called in India. In India is the belief that the human body can survive on air and in some cases, sunlight's alone in Sanskrit. The essence being consumed is called Purna or life force, but many other countries and religions have their own words for it in India has been studied and documented for centuries. The Catholics called it Anorexia Mirabilis or holy Anorexia unlike the more common form of the disorder we know today Anorexia Mirabilis was fueled by blind devotion to one's faith rather than a desire to be thin Jane monks in India have been known to fast for six months or more with one monk going as long as five hundred days without food. Back in the late Sixteen Hundred Zero Secretions spiritual enlightenment from a secret esoteric order possessing ancient knowledge among their topics of study where the teachings of an alchemist named. Parasol, says who claimed to have lived for several years on nothing more than a little bit of sunlight. Among. The surprising number of an ends out there a Buddhist monk living in Nepal was able to survive for more than four days on air alone not a particularly impressive feats when compared to Jane monks until you realize he did it while sitting in one spot without moving muscle. Mahatma Gandhi famously fasted as a method of political protest. He called it the truest prayer. Of course, such a diet isn't for the faint of heart literally several practitioners of such extreme fasting have died of starvation and dehydration over the years. But it was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty when an American name Willie. Brooks took the movement to a whole new level. He burst onto the scene on the television show. That's incredible. Brooks was the founder of the breath Airy Institute of America Bre variants as he explained, where people who could live without eating physical food. At the time of his television debut Brooks claimed that he hadn't eaten so much as a peanuts in over fifteen years, his group started out with several hundred followers who wanted to learn how to sustain themselves on only air and sunshine and Brooks was only too happy to help. For a price of course, he charge people, ten dollars to attend lectures while all day seminars earned him one hundred bucks a head those who really wanted to change their lives had to drop five hundred dollars to attend an intensive retreats. During. These seminars, Brooks, top people that the body was able to pull all the nutrients it needed to survive right out of the air. He explained how when he was in his late twenties, he was losing his hair and feeling older by the day. It wasn't until he started fasting when his body started to bounce back his hair grew back. He felt better to those who followed him brooks walked the walk as much as he talked the talk, he eventually compounded his fasting regimen with a special form of meditation which he claimed the body as much as the sole. Things seemed to be going well for the spiritual leader until his followers finally saw the truth in nineteen eighty-three, a news report came out that Willy Brooks hadn't been completely honest about his diet. It seems his human body needed a little more than air to survive. Brooks had been spotted coming out of a seven eleven slurpee in one hand and hot dog and twinkies in the other.

He also outlawed what he referred to as pointless sports. Those who refuse to comply were fined forty shillings if caught. Rather, than waste their time throwing a ball soldiers were instructed, spend their days shooting arrows at targets four times a year they would be expected to perform in archery display most likely to demonstrate their accuracy. The. Sports ban lasted for some time but the men couldn't stay away forever. They needed to find ways to unwind and squeezed in games where they could after James. The third assumed the throne in fourteen sixty. He also noticed the distractions that had plagued his father soldiers and he renewed the ban on golf and football in fourteen seventy. The prohibition continued until fourteen ninety one when James the third son James the fourth also renewed the ban on the two sports.

"When a child breaks a window, there's usually a complicated story behind what happened like how the wind blew the ball away, and then a bird caught it and dropped it as it was flying over the house, which sent it crashing through the window, never mind the bats in the kid's hand. Richard Sharpe shaver. Also had some wild stories in his back pocket born in Virginia in nineteen o seven Richard eventually grew up to work in a factory where one day in nineteen, thirty, two, he experienced bizarre events. It was around that time that he realized that his welding gun had become calibrated in such a way that it gave him the ability to hear other men's thoughts. Not, only that apparently the signal was so strong that he was able to hear demonic beans deep below the surface of the earth as they tortured other people. Now, the story behind how he came to possess these powers changed almost every time he told it, but he always swore that it was true. Richard eventually had to quit his job at the factory. He also gave up his home as he put it. He became a Hobo for several years before writing the letter to the Popular Science Fiction magazine called amazing stories back in nineteen, forty, three in the letter. Richard told the editors that he had discovered Mantong an ancient proto human language that predated all other known languages on Earth. Every syllable and sound Mantong had a double meaning and Richard could translate those sounds using a special formula. He developed. He provided editor Ray Palmer with that formula so that he could see for himself, Palmer used his technique to reveal the hidden meanings to a handful of words, and then replied Richard asking him how he had discovered this language. Richard had been prepared for that question with a ten thousand word explanation. He told Palmer that Mantong had originated among prehistoric alien race that were technologically advanced beyond anything. They had ever seen. They had carved out massive cities under the earth, but fled the planet due to the sun's harmful rays. Not, all of them had left though and those who remained behind were split into two different groups. The tariffs were a minority who had retained their humanity. The other group devolved into beast like creatures known as dareus or detrimental robots. The DARROW's he claimed still occupied those cities underground occasionally snatching person from the service to take them down below. Those humans were then tortured and fed to Darris. Those awful creatures had been known to communicate with aliens in space and use rocket ships to get around. How did Richard No this while he claimed to have been captured by the dareus and held against his will for years. Palmer was entertained by the story and he fleshed it out into a novella which he then published in amazing stories in March of Nineteen forty-five. The magazine had gotten its fair share of letters to the editor before, but Richard, story seemed to have sparked movement thousands of letters poured into Palmer's office from readers who said that they had also encountered the Darus and heard voices inside their heads just as Richard had back in nineteen, thirty two. One woman told Palmer that she had been taken captive in Paris and was kidnapped after writing a secret elevator into the buildings sub basement. She was held in the underground caverns until a terrace found her and let her go. It seems that Richard Story hadn't just connected with readers. It had spawned entire organization known as the Richard Mystery Club and local chapters started popping up all over America. Richard continued to supply amazing stories with his well. Amazing stories. The magazine published his tales for years until a massive letter writing campaign force them to stop authors. Harlan Ellison called Richard a publicity hound just looking for attention while other readers believed his stories were symptoms of mental illness. Whatever the reason amazing stories cut ties with Richard in nineteen, forty eight, but he never cut ties with his prehistoric races. He started writing about the artifacts that he'd found that backed up his claims such as books made of rocks with text and pictures etched inside them. He never again experienced the kind of success that he'd found while writing for amazing stories though decades later, his photographs and art would go on display in museums all over the country, but it's tales of prehistoric beans living below. The Earth were written off as run of the mill science fiction. Through it all Richard, Sharpe shaver continued to believe that his stories were true as did the thousands of witnesses who wrote into the magazine with their own frightening recollections. Was, Richard telling the truth. It's difficult to know for sure. Until we do though it's probably best to watch our step. And avoid those secret elevators. ooh.

"You might not have heard of Diogo Elvis in the realm of serial killers. His name doesn't stoke fear or fascination the way Ted Bundy or Richard Speck might but get to know him a little and you start to see a man who deserves the same notoriety as his peers especially in death. Alvarez was born in Galicia Spain in eighteen ten this family was poor and a childhood injury incurred after falling off. The family. Horse didn't help some think that the damage to his head which also inspired his nickname cutoff or blow can be attributed to the sharp turn. He took toward robbery and murder order later in life when Alvez's was nineteen. His parents sent him to Lisbon to find a job but nothing seemed to take. He bounced from place to place but his young age and modest upbringing. Meant work was hard to find. Eventually he found a job working as a servant for wealthier members of Spanish society. His family. Naturally we wanted to know how things were going for him but he never wrote them back. Perhaps he was ashamed of where he'd ended up or maybe he hadn't found the right line of work yet. One day a he ended up at a tavern run by a woman named Maria. Rumor had it that Alvarez and Maria grew close very close that's when he started stealing and copying being the keys of the taverns patrons so that he could rob their homes later one of the keys he copied allowed him to access a nearby aqueduct. This aqueduct was a massive acid stone. Structure that distributed water all across Lisbon and it also provided Alvez's with the perfect venue for robbing farmers on their way back from the city each night once he had liberated each of them from their money and belongings he would fling them off the top of the aqueduct. Sixty five stories to their death over the course of three years is he did this. Dozens of times and amazingly the police were none the wiser by eighteen thirty seven however Alvez's had lost his killing spots. The number of suspected suicides forced authorities to close the aqueduct to the public as a result he formed gang and started breaking into people's homes to rob and kill them there air instead in eighteen forty. The police finally caught him although they were never able to tie him to the aqueduct murders however they did manage to convict victim for the home invasions he and his gang had committed including the deaths of a family of four it was the tavern owners. Eleven year old daughter also named Maria who testified against him and helped to cement his conviction the jury sentenced IAGO Alvez's to death making him the second to last criminal ever executed in Portugal Aghil but there was something about his corpse that had captured the interests of students at the Medical Surgical School of Lisbon. Rash of murders he'd committed were so out of place for the quiet communities he and his gang had terrorized for all those years so after he was hanged for his crimes. Doctors examined his head more closely. They wanted to see see. How a man like Alvez's could have ended up so depraved and devoid of morals? Because remember this was eighteen. Forty one in the practice of phonology was just beginning to gain. Gain steam within the medical community for analogy of course was the study of the bumps on a person's head as indicators of their mental abilities and personality traits. Today it's recognized as complete bunk pure pseudoscience but at the time scientists honestly believed that the shape of a person's skull could explain their behavior savior and decisions. Researchers at the medical school in Lisbon. Wanted to see if defects in Alvez's cranium could explain why he murdered seventy people during his lifetime. Unfortunately they couldn't find any evidence for his lack of a conscience. But if you're a student and you'd like to have a look you can go visit Diogo Alves as yourself and look him writes in the is well his head at least it was preserved in formaldehyde immediately after his execution looks almost exactly as it did on the day he died. His face bears the quiet peaceful expression of a man who looks nothing like a cold blooded killer if only disembodied heads could talk.

"Plane, crash survivors have told incredible stories of the fear. They overcame when facing what they thought was certain death, a man who had been on a US Airways flight that crashed in two thousand nine disgust reading the emergency instructions while his plane was nosediving over water a woman on a small chartered flight in nineteen ninety eight bound herself lost in the Congo when the pilot lost control over a mountain range, she made it out of the wreckage, but eventually lost her legs to frostbite. We have their stories to help us understand what it's like to be part of an experience, that most people do not survive. But what happens when those stories can't be told I'm not talking about a lack of survivors? I'm talking about a lack of any evidence at all. What do you do when you know there's been a crash, but there's no proof? It's hard to imagine such thing happening a large metal aircraft falling from the sky. The sound of the impact and explosion, the smell of burning fuel, there would be pieces of the plane leftover or a crater were down trees and yet, despite I witness reports of airplanes. Disappearing into wooded areas or over the ocean. There's no proof. They ever happened. And the planes often seen are vintage models from the nineteen thirties and forties. Usually aircraft used for bombings or personnel transports, for example, in the spring of nineteen ninety-five, Tony Ingle from Derbyshire England watched as a large airplane with enormous propellers silently fell into an open field where she had been grazing. Tony hurry to the site expecting death, and destruction hoping someone had radioed for help that would soon be on its way. But no help came. It wasn't needed. The sheep were still there safely eating without any trace of a crash. No smoke no fire and no plane. And that wasn't the only phantom crash scene. Over Derbyshire one year earlier, the local police received hundreds of frantic calls about a World War. Two bomber gliding at dangerously low altitude, many observers thought that it was moments away from crashing. So the authorities dispatched to full search team to hunt for the wreck only to find nothing. The plane had just disappeared even as recently as two thousand eighteen Derbyshire citizens took the social media with claims of another ghost plane. Cruising, low overhead. Some had pegged the vessel as a Douglas Dakota transport model that had crashed in the area during the war it moved without making a sound an impossible feat for something so large being powered by four giant propellers. It should come as no surprise that Derbyshire England wasn't enforcement victim of the second World War having been subjected to countless bombings, and attacks much of the area was reduced to rubble and fact, in old oak tree in the north east Derbyshire town of duck. Minton is honored every year for taking a direct hit from a German parachute bomb in nineteen forty the bomb had been meant for the local railway station, but instead hit the tree sparing not only the station, but also hundreds of lives, and nearby school. That doesn't explain why phantom airplanes continue to play the townspeople there, though. And Derbyshire isn't the only place where they've been seen allowed roar. Startled the people of Berkshire just west of London. On the evening of October twentieth two thousand eleven they ran to their windows and into the street to check on the commotion when they looked up, there was a commercial airliner streaking past them headed for nearby wooded area. The civil aviation authority reported no distress calls that night from any passenger aircraft. Woods were also a dead end if the plane was real it hadn't made a hard landing, or resulted in a crash, it simply vanished. In the end, perhaps, we shouldn't be asking where these planes, come from or where they go when they vanish instead, maybe we should be asking ourselves, a better question. If a plane falls in.

They call them the Kunst calmer, which means cabinets of curiosities and all through the seventeenth eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Those collections popped up all across Europe and America. These were rooms of wonder, enormous cabinets filled with one of a kind objects that delighted and intrigued the people who collected them relics from another age, portrait's of significant people devices of ingenuity and fascination.
