The DNC and RNC are going virtual. What can we expect?
"So actually the coronavirus pandemic everything has gone virtual. We covered all digital conferences like Tho- launches, apples, WDC. In DNC are completely different animals Taco bell expecting to see well I. Think it's GonNa be a very, highly produced. Event just like it normally is but it's GonNa be really different because you know when they. When they usually do this, you've got like thousands of people in a huge arena you know you have people talking. And they're they're mostly talking to the to the people, the viewers and the audience. Sitting at home on their couches. Anyway. But you have that vibe you have that you know the people cheering it's it's like being in a live sporting event in a sense you know so like that's going to be lost a bit. Yeah. We've we've had instances with like the the NBA right they put up digital boards with with people that are virtually in I've watched the most games. It's definitely not. It doesn't really replicate the feeling of being at a game where the ambiance there I imagine a lot of the energy that would have been in those conferences have people been there. Is really kind of sucked away, right? Yeah and you know and that's really political conventions are basically like cheerleading events right? You know it's like the party faithful as there you've got these delegates from all around the country they're like really Gung Ho for their party and their candidate and they wanna like. You know just cheer their heads off and it's you know. So you know I think that energy is going to be a bit different but I'm also curious to see like what creative things they come up with right like like you mentioned the NBA thing like like are they going to do something like that? You know I mean? It'll be interesting to see how they approach it. Yeah. Have you got any kind of indication on on what they might do to create that excitement that is would be missing from having all those folks there. Yeah. So the the DNC they they have been, they've definitely said that they are going to try to involve people like regular everyday people. So I'm wondering if it is going to be something NBA like right where they have screens. Right there. But we'll definitely be having some like. Some people getting beamed in from all across the US whether it's you know. Politicians or or just SORTA your regular everyday folks who are like either live on video and a lot of like these pre produced videos people have been they've had this campaign where people are able to. Send in their videos like with prompts like I know Joe and talk about like why they're excited about Joe Biden and that kind of thing. So they're going to have that SORTA interspersed throughout the program. So it'll be interesting to see like how it all Kinda comes together. To DNC specifically, what what is that? GonNa look like will anyone actually be in Milwaukee? So there will probably be like a skeleton kind of crew in Milwaukee like I've heard that that Tom Perez, who's the chairman of the DNC was still planning to go to Milwaukee to gavel in the convention officially. But the big speakers you know like Joe Biden, who's the presumptive nominee he is not going to be there he's going to be somewhere in Delaware. Now, they've said he's not probably going to do it from his basement. So some place else in Delaware. In the Wilmington area where he lives. So that'll be interesting. I wonder how they they might dress up whatever venue he's in. You know like he was speaking with. Kamala Harris. You know the other day they've had actually a couple of speaking engagements and they've got the flags everywhere but like the backdrop didn't really look all that interesting to me. So it'll it'll I wonder how they're going to you know jazz it up so that it looks cool. How's the Brokaw can work? Yeah. So the roll call and by the way like I got to go to the convention in two, Thousand Sixteen, the roll call is pretty cool. Just in general when you're there in the room, there's like this vibe all the people stand up and they say, you know I'm from South Carolina and they were the whatever state and we pledge our ex delegates to. And so it's like an exciting moment. So it's going to be totally different this time 'cause they're all not going to be in the room but I you know they've said they're. GonNa. Kind of pop around all all the states and so you're probably going to have people from those states. Doing their call and I'm sure they're gonNA do something jazzy about like. You know I'm from Delaware. So it's like Delaware the first state in the nation. Allah. Probably say something like that I don't know. So it'll. We'll see. We'll see what about the NC I know there was a lot of back and forth about where was gonna be in whether it was go digital What is that GonNa was so that you know I think that's still to be determined right? Like they're still they haven't put out a whole lot of information about like what it's GonNa look like exactly. So I mean I want I wonder if some of this might change in the next week but. So far they are. Going to have a very reduced crowd in Charlotte. President trump will not be there to accept the nomination. In they're gonNa have like something like you know three hundred or so delegates there. So you know I don't know I don't know if they're going to try to do some things kind of like in in the arena although I think that would look pretty. bleak. If it's people, you know space really far apart. So I think that's still Kinda to be determined with what they're going to be doing it wear for folks who are watching these where can you check out the streams? So the DNC they've announced a whole bunch of places like you're gonna be able to stream, it live on youtube and facebook and twitter and And then the convention is officially you know airing from nine to eleven every night and all the broadcast channels will have it for the last hour. And and then they're gonNA have it on like TV and Roku and so they were going to be a lot of opportunities for people to stream it or. Even, to SORTA catch it on the networks got looking at some of the other challenges I mean we talked a little bit about the lack of energy. But what are the potential pitfalls who going virtual? Yeah. Well I mean we've all been watching. You know some of these cable news shows lately right like in sometimes you get like the guests who are like pixellated or their screen freezes. You know so I think that's going to be a challenge. You know you don't want somebody to be mid-sentence and all of a sudden they're face completely frees up. So that'll be a challenge. Yasser. Don't want it to look like a really boring call. With. With everybody with the bookcase in the background. So I think they'll have to figure out ways to to make it look interesting and you know. And not have any sort of technical glitches.

Mail Delivery In Swing States Falls Short, Worrying Elections Officials
"You're planning to vote by mail this election, there are troubling signs that on time mail delivery is not meeting the standards set by the Postal Service. A PM reports the investigations unit of American Public Media analysed first class mail delivery data, and it found that mail service in critical swing states is worse than a year ago. Elections officials worry that late ballots may never be counted. Tom shek has the story. The Corona virus pandemic has prompted tens of millions of people across the country to consider something different this November voting by mail, Wisconsin resident Eliza Werner is one of them. In June. She and her husband requested absentee ballots for the August primary. But she started worrying after not getting her ballot after waiting a month as people started talking more and more about the upcoming election. I just thought, you know I really should have received that by now. It's been a couple of weeks, she says. She was told other voters in the Milwaukee suburb reported similar problems. The clerk canceled Warner's initial ballot and re sent new ones. Elections officials say Nearly 700 ballots were not delivered to Milwaukee area voters for this week's primary. And that comes just months after thousands of ballots didn't reach Wisconsin voters in the April primary. And analysis of mail delivery confirms voter complaints. The Postal District serving eastern and southern Wisconsin repeatedly failed to meet on time delivery goal since 2016 putting it in the bottom quarter of districts across the country. Wisconsin isn't the only swing state Postal district failing to meet delivery standards. Detroit's on time delivery for two day male plunged nearly 22% since last year. None of this surprises. Tina Barton, She's an election's manager in Michigan and says some primary voters there complained about never even getting ballots in the mail. So even a couple weeks prior to that I had a City council member tell me that they had gone four days and had not received any mail and so about a couple weeks prior to the election, I was really starting to sound the alarm to people and I had important, says she started telling voters who requested ballots in the run up to the primary to return them in person. Timely mail delivery is important because Michigan, like more than half the states requires ballots to be returned by election Day. Postal officials are urging voters to mail their ballots at least a week before Election Day. They also say they're working with elections officials to educate them about election male standards. Speaking before the Postal Services Board of governors last week, Postmaster General Lewis to Joy said election male will be delivered in a timely manner. We have delivery standards that have been in place for many years. The standards have not changed, and despite any associations to the contrary. We're not slowing down Election mail or any other male. We are dealing with a directive under the new postmaster general that is not seeking to improve the delivery performance. Timmy Patrick is an election male expert for the Democracy fund. She says to Joy's recent changes to how the postal services run will make mail delivery slower at a time when it needs to speed up When you eliminate over time when you change the work ethos of an entire organization that is get the mail through To leave it behind. It's going to cause problems to joy made his changes after the on time delivery data was collected for the last quarter, leading Patrick to suspect It's even worse now. Individual postal carriers and a union leader representing postal workers also say the changes, air leading toe upheaval and significant delays across the country. Elections officials are urging voters to hand deliver their balance to a drop box or elections office if it's close to election Day. Still, some voting rights advocates say that doesn't go far enough. Allison Riggs leads the voting rights program at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice in North Carolina. She says. North Carolina doesn't have a lot of experience handling mail ballots. Couple that with mail delivery worries and rig says it's better to vote in person were suddenly talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of new things to be in the mail. Back in Wisconsin, ELISA Werner says she'll again request a ballot be mailed to her for the November election. But she won't return it by mail.

What's In A Scientific Name
"From loon example of a trial by in Hunan China called Hans Solo to a butterfly Pea flour reminiscent of Georgia. Oh painting called Couture Couturier Turn Tia. The naming of species offers almost as much in the way of entertainment as it does scientific classification. The official rules for naming species set down by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature are surprisingly simple. The name must be spelled with the Latin alphabet and must not be overtly offensive and that's pretty much it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Most of US know that the animals we call by single name such as a horse actually had a two part name in that case equis Columbus. In contrast to astronomical bodies like stars, Asteroids and planets which are under strict naming conventions overseen by committees, there's almost unfettered freedom it comes to zoological nomenclature. The name can even be on sense string of arbitrary letters. While there is a wealth of name fascination to report on from plants to drugs to telescopes. Ourselves today to the Animal Kingdom. For as long as we have had records and probably longer mankind has sought to classify the world around us in an effort to begin to understand it. This is called taxonomy the study of the general principles of scientific classification from the Greek words for order or arrangement and science. Three centuries before the common era aristotle grouped animals I by similarities like where they lived and then hierarchically with humans naturally at the top. Not, every animal fit well into this system though ducks posed a particular problem as they had the bothersome habit of living on water on land and spending time in the air. It would be eighteen hundred years before another natural philosopher as scientists were called, then would try their hand such as Andrei sessile, Pino Italian physician, and botanist who sorted plants by the structure of their fruits and seeds. The first scientist to use a binomial or to name system that we would recognize was Swiss botanist guest sparred Boeing. Some six thousand plants by genus and species in sixteen, twenty three. There were several inconsistent and sometimes conflicting systems of classification already in use when Carolina's wrote his. SYSTEMA naturally in seventeen, thirty five. Laying down the system we use to this day. Lena's was first taxonomic east to list humans as a primate, but he also originally classified whales as. All living things were sorted into them, Feilim class order, family, genus, and species. Many of US memorized that in middle school by way of a new monarch like King Philip came over from great Spain. Housecat for example, is kingdom and Amelia filed them cor data meaning it has spinal cord. Class Mammalia order can Adora family feel a day genus fearless and species cactus. A lion diverges at the genus Pan Terra, which awesomely means reaper of all and species. Leo. So the scientific name for Lion Is Penn Tara Leo. This system can be visualized as an enormous branching tree with its trunk, very broad and its branches increasingly specific. We. Still name some animals in accordance with their appearance with a little poetic license thrown in for good measure. The tiniest and most pastelle of the armored mammals was christened the pink fairy armadillo. A. Hand Size Lizard with a gift from a meese camouflage was given the fairly metal moniker satanic leaf tailed Gecko. It's actual religious beliefs remain a mystery. As advertised, the star nosed mole has a burst of delicate sensory tendrils on the tip of its snout. Also, sacks myuka Flores is an unappealing worm who lives off the bones of dead whales which would explain its name bone eating snot flower. A bacterium that was taken to the International Space Station, and exposed to cosmic radiation earned the Latin moniker for traveler of the void. China boasts a salamander species that can grow to a whopping one point. Eight meters were nearly six feet long. It goes by the name. Hell Bender and this reporter for one will not argue with it.

Save The Whales. Save The Tigers. Save The Tapeworms?
"Most of us have heard of saving the elephants or saving the polar bears. But what about saving their parasites scientists are increasingly finding that parasites are key part of ecosystems and many risk of extinction NPR's lauren summer explains. When your job is to study parasitic worms, not everyone wants to hear what you do for a living. It's not a popular topic of conversation cocktail parties. I can tell you that Chelsea would is assistant professor at the University of Washington parasites a major public relations problem they're gross and slimy and most people don't really like thinking about them. But the fact is that they're really important in ecosystems would. Says just look at a flat worm she studies in California Ponds I. The parasites starts as an egg inside a bird, the birds about the egg, which infects snails than it goes from the snail to frog, but the parasite needs to get back in a bird to finish its life cycle. So it causes deformities in the frogs legs, which makes it easier for birds to catch and eat them which helps. Sustain. The bird population would says, it shows how humble parasites can influence the entire food web. But if birds are threatened, we're GONNA. See some parasites decline possibly to extinction in the presence of environmental change, which is why team parasitology released a new parasite conservation plan. The first step is simply identifying them of the millions of parasite species only about ten percent are known to science says Schuyler Hopkins of. North Carolina State University. We know nothing about them. We don't need another name Oh definitely don't know what they're doing with the ecosystems. Many parasites are just as vulnerable as their host animals are to climate change and habitat loss but even though an animal may be listed as endangered, it's parasites aren't, but they could be added alongside their more visible hosts. It would be a really great way or easy way. To get a lot of mileage for her site conservation because humans tend to gravitate to animals like us. It is the wolves and the grizzlies and the polar bears mostly the mammals that really get people's attention Jacob Malcolm Works for the advocacy group defenders of wildlife. He says, it's not all bad. That humans focus on those charismatic critters saving their habitat can also help the less charismatic species in their ecosystem. So whatever chances his group launches a save the Leeches campaign pretty close to zero. So now's the time leach lovers of the World Unite Lauren summer NPR news.

What do you do cola and what what is your current relationship with plants? Professionally and personally in your life right now. Well, that is always feels like a loaded question to me because the first answer I give is I'm hyper creative, and that means that I'm just interested in all things and it's For gardening to stick as the thing that I actually landed on and settled on as a huge deal with that in mind but Yeah. Definitely. A hyper creative obviously having created a podcast and that's another thing that stuck. So I'm excited about that. Because I've tried so many different things in the past but of course, doing a a culture based gardening podcast that was me to really. Literally. Sit at the intersection of my interests. So what I do besides podcasting. You know I really had to give that some thought and with the the way that the world has shifted with covert and stuff. If you ask me this back in, February would have been totally different answer.

Black Youth to the earth be gardening in plants, and you know just off things nature and I just want to do that in ways that are creative and culturally relevant to them because. There's a misconception that black kids are not interested in in horticulture and things of that nature. But that's a matter of access and resources being available.

Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis
"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

For years ago the South Carolina primary was a turning point for the Democratic nomination. Bernie Sanders put up unexpectedly. Strong challenge to Hillary Clinton the first few stance but his blowout loss with the beginning of he'd hold on through the end of the primaries but South Carolina showed he couldn't break through to a big section of the party. South Carolina was also a turning point in two thousand eight. Barack Obama was the unexpected challenger that year and after his win Iowa voters saw the chance to elect the nation's first black president and after polls had initially showed Clinton doing well stable Bama a huge victory any went on to become the nominee. I Wonder Hampshire get the attention but South Carolina as being crucial for the last year.

"Senator Bernie Sanders won the primary last night and we'll take that momentum into Nevada no but wider to bring. You ought to be pretty good new. We have now one Nevada corker. All EYES ARE TURNING TO SOUTH CAROLINA. The next battleground state in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination Bernie. Sanders is the undisputed front runner among Democratic presidential candidates hoping to challenge Donald Trump. Hey It's Alex Berenson New York so last week in Nevada. We saw the candidates are going after each other more intensely than ever before days. Before the caucuses there as Bernie Sanders was emerging as a progressive front runner with none of the more moderate candidates willing to drop out and Mike Bloomberg fragmenting devote even further good evening and welcome the Democratic presidential primary here in South Carolina. The primary in the south is just four days. Away and Super Tuesday is just a week away and this is the biggest primary day of the year as voters in fourteen states cast ballots and many of them. Tell us they have not actually made up mind so this this week with days to go until the South Carolina primary and signs that Sanders is gaining among African American voters. Things were even more wild and the debate moderators totally failed to keep control of the event which didn't help we're talking about. L. Look first of all. Let me come. I think she was talking about my plan. Not Yours talk right away. As expected it was a Sanders Pylon Bernie and I agree on a lot of things but I think I would make a better president than Bernie and the reason the candidates were trying to convey that nominating Bernie. Sanders would be dangerous. That's nominated democratic. Socialist is to deliver a second term. You trump we will elect Bernie Bernie will lose to Donald Trump and donald trump and the house and the Senate and some of the state houses will all go red and then between gerrymandering and pointing judges for the next twenty or thirty years. We're going to live with US and cost Democrats Their House majority and imperilled efforts to win the Senate twenty twenty cans. The time has come for us to stop acting like the presidency is the only office matters. Not only is this a way to get donald trump reelected. You got a house to worry. You got a Senate to worry about and this is this is really important. Hearing my name mentioned a little bit tonight maybe but what we saw from sanders was a candidate totally claiming his mantle and digging in on some of his most controversial position on Medicare for all we need to do is to do what every other major country on earth does guarantee healthcare to all people on Israel. I am very proud of being Jewish. I actually lived in Israel for some months but when I happen to believe. Is that right now? Sadly tragically in Israel through BB Netanyahu. You have a reactionary cest. Who is now running that country? What are the most revealing? Exchanges was on Cuban the Chinese Communist Party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country. You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua. Can Americans trust that? A democratic socialist president will not give Authoritarians a free pass. I have opposed authoritarianism all over the world and I was really. Sanders asked why he had praised some accomplishments of the cast ruining their tighter chip there. Of course you have a dictatorship in Cuba. What I said is what Barack Obama said in terms of Cuba. Cuba made progress on education. Yes I think. Really really bad to Barack Obama's they made hoping rave progress on education healthcare. That was Barack Obama. I told you speak and rather than try to back away from it. Sanders is essentially saying yes. I said it I stand by it. I was right and I'm not pivoting. Occasionally it might be good idea to be honest about American foreign policy and that includes the fact that America has overthrown governments all over the world in Chile in Guatemala in Iran and where dictatorships whether it is the Chinese or the Cubans. Do something good. You acknowledged. But you don't have. This is a core tenant of Sanders worldview his belief that the United States has often been a disruptive even destructive force overseas and by standing by that view as he becomes a front runner for a major party's presidential nomination. He's reinforcing one of his essential political calling cards. His consistency his ability to say these are the views I've had for decades. I'm right now I've been right for forty years and many voters really admire about him vice president fighting but the latest one issue sanders can't claim that kind of consistency and didn't try. We talk about progressive. Let's talk about being progresses. Walking dishes fears Emmanuel Church. Nine people shot dead by a white. Supremacist Bernie voted five times against the Brady Bill and monitor waiting waiting waiting period of twelve hours. I'm not saying he's responsible for the nine desk but that man would not been able to get that weapon with the waiting period that Ben will I suggest until you are cleared for most of his career? Sanders opposed crucial forms of gun regulation including a landmark Brady Bill in one thousand nine hundred and he voted to shield gun manufacturers lawsuits. I want allow Senator Sanders respond. Because you've gone after the insurance industry you've taken on pharmaceutical companies and you've taken on big tech. Why did you vote repeatedly to give gun manufacturers a pass Joe has voted for terrible trade agreements? Don't no no no seems to? This is a problem on all these other issues. He's just digging in his heels under attack. Here he says yes. I made a mistake. I have cast thousands of votes including bad votes. That was a bad book. And this is the rare part of his record that undercuts his claim to total consistency and authenticity. Over the years. I have today a D. minus voting record from the NRA but sanders opponents didn't let him off the hook. It's a chance for even like Bloomberg a former Republican to question sanders claims to progressive purity and to total consistency over a long career. And to do it heading into this critical next state. The issue of gun control has hurt sanders badly in South Carolina in the past. It's an issue that matters a lot to African American voters there and in two thousand Sixteen Hillary Clinton used it to great effect in the State. This time even. Bloomberg managed to get his footing in a handful of important exchanges including one in which he accused Sanders of and supported the NRA and certainly some of the Sanders is supported the NRA. But so that's the latest. We'll see on Saturday. Sanders can manage a decisive breakthrough in South Carolina. Or whether Joe Biden were someone else might still making comeback..

So I think we're they're looking for, is that person who will make sure that there will be taken care of because they're state isn't doing their legislator isn't doing. So what can you do for me? If I have to go to the polls to vote for you something that we're hearing from a couple of experts in different early states and I'm wondering if it's the same in South Carolina is that one difference? This election cycle versus past election cycles is there's been kind of a gun nationalization of. Of the primary and so voters are looking they're looking at national polls there. Is More than they had in past cycle do you think that's also true in South Carolina? Do you think the local traditions and in an endorsement still really reigns supreme I do I really do So for instance, a lot of people who endorsed Kamla and Start Carolina are now moving to. Joe. Biding there's this group of Women in Columbia Law Richland area called the wrecking crew they were very. Instrumental with support and calmly they were very instrumental supporting Hillary Clinton in. Now since Kamla course got out the race, they have thrown their support behind Joe Biden. So I think endorsements really work in like southern states or maybe like a rural areas because a lot of times people follow the lead of their community leaders or their elected officials is so I think that's why endorsements are still important and they mean a lot right everybody will be vying for Congressman Clermont's endorsement. But of course you he has to have a reason to endorse you, and if he does endorse, you is going to be at the last minute. So his endorsement means a lot. So just having certain people endorsed, you'd be from certain elated officials, certain community leaders and even certain faith leaders is a big deal in South Carolina, there is a narrative that Obama had proved in two thousand eight that Obama had proved he was appealing to white voters by winning Iowa, and then that gave the green light for voters in South Carolina to vote for him the do you think the order of the early states? Influences the others no I think every other state is like a football scrimmage and when you get to South Carolina you're really playing hardball. So no I think everything else is just We're just sitting here drinking tea eating cookies, but once you finally get to South Carolina is when everything really put the rubber to the road what are some of the big swings are shifts that you've seen in the primary so far?

He can shoot the three definitely But he is one of those guys that I think you know. Ohio state decent talent around him to could ride to you. Know a deep run in March for Maryland real quickly TERP fans that are listening I think these are games. You have to have and tonight's GonNa to be a tough one because Ohio state lost two games in a row. They're going to be in here. Desperate to stop they're losing skid. They lost to West Virginia and then they lost a Wisconsin after beating Kentucky. They've also beaten Villanova this year beaten North Carolina. That's not saying much this year North Carolina's really struggling But but you you gotTa Win these Games at home in a big ten season. That's twenty games in your plane. Twenty in the in the big ten this year you need to finish in the top two or three in the big doc ten. Because what you don't want to get yourself into Into come march is when the brackets revealed. You gotta five next year name or a foreign extra name. You gotTa have a two next to your name no worse than three next year name this year you got enough talent to that and the regular seasons really important. That's why last year was really upset when the sold that game or move that game with Illinois to the garden and they ended up losing it like that could could have been the difference succeed line. You know an match of everything and you can get a bad. Matchup is a two seat against seven. It could be the wrong type of team for you but more likely than not. You're you know if you're a one or two seed. He got a pretty good chance to make it to the sweet sixteen. And that's where he's got to be and that's where Marilyn's got to be this year and the non conference schedule they. He played in the way they played. It definitely made it so these games are even more important. You know you know where they're non conference schedule ranks right now. I don't know top ten in the country schedule Joie strength of schedule. Yes but when he comes down to those you know the quad one wins. The great wins. They don't have I guess the Marquette when I think is going to end up being quote one because that was on a neutral floor but they lost at Seton Hall and while it wasn't non-conference they lost at Penn state which would have been achieving. They're running basically. They're running out of chances to get really early Goodwin's on the schedule they'll have plenty of you. Know they play Ohio state twice. I was right now. A pretty good team Michigan of course and Michigan State. But you need to get these chances big wins because you didn't other than Marquette get a big win in the non conference yeah I mean I. I don't know if I'm right. What about the schedule strength? That just said I was taking their word for it because somebody out. There told me that they had a top ten strength of schedule. And maybe they did. Maybe they I think it's you know what it is. I think they were extrapolating. The full schedule and as of now. It looks like they will have the number eight schedule in the country. They're non conference. The schedule was fiftieth. which is still pretty decent but didn't have that big? You Know Marquee win you want. Yeah I mean you would really like you know teams like Temple and and Marquette to do really well temple in their league in their decent team Marquette in their league and even Notre Dame who lost a bunch of players but they actually won the other day I think at Syracuse. They want a couple of games in a row. Oh Notre Dame to do a little bit better in the ACC Kaz Maryland destroyed them But Yeah I mean you're now into the year now into this big ten unstretched. You beat Indiana on. Saturday was a good win You've got Ohio state tonight. And then you gotta go to Iowa on Friday night before going to Wisconsin next week it is not easy. The big ten's deep. It's not I don't know if it has a national championship team. Will the Michigan state starting around into form I think Ohio states very talented I think Maryland's sounds talented. Yuki it's one of those things Aaron where right now like a game like tonight may be one of those games that is the difference at the end of the Year of finishing sixteen sixteen and four or fifteen and five in the league versus thirteen and seven or fourteen and six somewhere in there. And that's the difference between potentially being two or three seed versus a four or five seat. You you know this is one you gotta get and it's not going to be easy Maryland's a two and a half point favorite tonight but Ohio state as I mentioned had they've lost two in a row. They lost a huggins in West Virginia on on a neutral for Love that Huggins team this year. I'm I know Maryland. Fans hate everything about West Virginia. I Love Huggins as a coach. I loved their style of play. I Love I love those those teams that are that get after you with three star guys defensively. He presses still plays that one. Three one I I like that. t-that the team this year huggins team and they they beat Ohio state neutral force a week and a half ago. But I don't know I I. I'm hopeful about tonight I think I think west is going to be a load for sticks to matchup against you talk about two of the better bigs in the league but totally different types of biggs sticks is is is is a definite you know force as a rim protector as a shot blocker but not necessarily anything else. He doesn't have great low post game. I'd like seem keep you know picking and popping out front with with With Cowan I love that that little pick and pop. They've got sticks can shoot it man. He should have the green light to shoot it every every time he's opened there. Do you think they win tonight. No but that's just my Maryland. Kind of defeat is ten and me. I am surprised by how much they're favored by. I'll be honest really. Yeah I thought it might be a little bit more now at home. The the models. Actually I think Ohio State is the favourite. So that's a little interesting to me Ken Palms Got Ohio State. Date yet picking based on the chem numbers this game should actually be a pick em with Meryl Maryland home and Meryl's favored by two and I actually was expecting a three three and a half and sought at two went up to two and a half I Dunno I there at home tonight. The crowds going to be a problem tonight. Seven o'clock start in snow. That's a bad combination automation. Hopefully the students get there and they get there early these Maryland really good over the weekend. I I heard the Indiana crowd was excellent for the students. Not being there. They're not they're not back in school. Maryland's got a very long winter break. They had that when I was there. they They had a really good crowd out there. I would expect a decent crowd but again the traffic ethic with the snow this afternoon is going to be a mother you know what. Luckily everybody's getting awfully so hopefully traffic shouldn't be at schools and federal government. Getting that's good news Send everybody home. All right Thanks Tommy for calling in thanks to Erin. Thanks to all of you back tomorrow..

"And the thing is with the forty niners not only are they very good but with a great defense. They've got a coach who knows kirk cousins better than anybody no doubt without Kyle Shanahan knows tendencies knows knows knows everything about him. Basically did everything he could to get him in San Francisco And so in Kyle Shanahan so You know you gotta think that comes into play as well. Look if if if Kirk does beat the forty eighty nine so then you can rent Pennsylvania Avenue and meet the parade. No it won't be a no. No no you're wrong. You're wrong if he plays well and wind Saturday against the forty niners. It's still not going to be good enough. Tommy the goalposts. The goal posts will continue to move until they can't move move anymore and they can't move if he gets a team to a superbowl. That contract brought with it the expectation of Super Bowl period. Whether whether it's fair or not because he's not an elite quarterback he's a good quarterback you know most people who know as he says no but his contract doesn't match rush. His contract doesn't say second weekend to the playoffs. It says Super Bowl and if he gets there then that'll be it But you you know. If he doesn't I think it'll always be yeah. Great second weekend of the playoffs is good enough for you. Forty niners starting first time ever quarterback in the playoffs and they'll come come up with their own things. Tommy here's what I've learned about this thing. Anything he does short of a super bowl it'll or race in the moment you know sort of these false narratives until the next game until the next game and they're right back and he's right back to being the stat stuffing choker that all of his detractors. I think he is yeah. He played well Sunday though didn't he. Yes he did yes he did and I was happy for him. I'm not a big A. Ah a believer as you are but I do think he's. I think he's a good quarterback. That's what I would have. I would have him. I think if the Red Redskins had him on on their team they'd be better. I think people will look back on his years with the redskins when when Kirk is come and gone odd and and say wow. The redskins really had a good quarterback. Then why weren't.

"What Rivera is like. I I agree with you. I think he has the charisma if the results are there to become very popular I don't really popular. I guess I agree with you that because he's very likable. I don't know how much charisma he has. But he is is definitely a guy that relate swell to younger players in in a in a in an accountability accountability way. Like you know you don't want guys that are looking for J. Gruden's you know you're not you're never going to win big if your players are satisfied not being coached or having it be you know real easy in being able to dictate when they practice hard and when when they don't and you don't know that until you've actually played played for a hard ass and and had success and then you're like oh he's actually made me better as a as a player as a person and this is how you things you you know. This is how you actually achieve in win. There's a work ethic. There's a there's a way to do it but it's not unusual for people young or old to try to take the path of least resistance which is like Jay Gruden type coach. So I do like that. He is a tough guy and still the players really like them and they ended up growing to like a more and more and more as their with more and more and more. You know you say that about Mardi but and I pointed this out today. On on the radio show Lavar Arrington really was one of the more talented players over the last twenty years to where redskin uniform he was gifted man and he had incredible athletic ability. The most physically gifted players. I've ever seen no doubt and that year with Marty. I've said this before but I'm convinced of it. I think Lavar Arrington had Marty Schottenheimer coached him for his entire career. He would have been a great player and an all time. I am great redskin and unfortunately it didn't happen and he didn't have good coaching here and didn't ultimately you know. Get it together and had injuries in the whole thing thing but I bet you even Lavar Arrington would tell you that if Marty schottenheimer kicked coached him for his entire career that year at the end of that year men Lavar he who is all over the place he was in coverage dominating he was pressuring domino dominating he was. That was the best I saw him and he had more sex with. Marvin Lewis you know in Marvin Lewis came in here Spurs defensive coordinator but the martyr year. I think I think if Mardian stated would turn him into it and I think a guy like Mardi even though he salty and perhaps you know not the easiest guy in the world to get along with you know always sort of commanded the room and demanded the respect of the players too. But I think I think you're right reversal. I'm not I'm not talking about the players. I'm talking about the fans as much in this case I think if you win fan base I mean and and wins if he wins big quickly. He'll be more than likable. I mean he'll be he'll be he'll be put on a pedestal. You know and and and and Snyder won't will be powerless. Although I WANNA point out that didn't stop Jerry Jones from force and Jimmy Johnson out after after a couple of super bowls when Jerry was pissed off because he wasn't getting any credit for the cowboys success. So Jerry is Snyder's roll-on breaking news the giants have hired Their new head coach according to Adam Schefter He's Joe Judge Special Teams Coordinator Wide Receivers Coach in New England for Belichick is with Bellichik since twenty twelve started as a special teams assistant special teams coordinator and has been the special teams coordinator and and wide receivers coach for the last couple of years. What were you going to say okay? There's another addition to that. What Ian Rapoport just tweeted one note on the giants Matt Rule called them before signing a six year deal with the panthers and gave them the opportunity match to get on the plane? They declined in higher Joe Judge instead. Wow Okay so mackerel. Signs with Carolina Carolina but matt rule wanted the giant job. Basically according to rappaport So that means only the browns in the that's it. The browns have to make a higher her. And everybody's got their guys assuming there's Carthy to Dallas barrier to Washington judge to the to to New York rule to Carolina and then In Cleveland. Stop there unless somebody else gets fired. which at this point? Marin looks like he's staying in Jacksonville Right Marrone I thought if Houston lost. Maybe O'Brien would get the acts but they won so yeah and you've got you know what we didn't talk about my favorite team as somebody said this morning radio that the Vikings were actually considering. Considering getting rid of Mike Zimmer had they lost that game on on Saturday on Sunday in New Orleans. He's a damn good coach. Conservative is held but a damn good coach. I think I think I read that if they did. The cowboys are ready to jump on. The cowboys would have hired Zimmer. Yeah I think the cowboys were really rooting for New Orleans to win in that game Let me do a quick read for mybookie dot. Ag Christmas has come and gone but the Super Bowl's quickly approaching. We've seen just what you know. Teams are capable title of the season. Now it's time to get in your last bets before the big game. The reigning champion Patriots have been knocked out. Who's going to step up in the AFC? Will the Ravens get it done and chiefs Texans. Titans I liked the titans a little bit head over to mybookie dot.

DC see to activate the offer that's Kevin DC at mybookie DOT AG. All Right Tommy. Before you go because I know you've got to run I wanted their weight there. Waiting for me at the Pau L.. I gotta go so I want to read This Another tweet that I got because it really. It made me laugh out loud but because I think the guy was spot on as as it relates. It's to how I was yesterday. So it came from Zach. And he said Kevin Widen you gloat more yesterday. About Kirks big moment you seemed hesitant to take a victory lap like you know what's coming next. And then he put three winking emojis next to it. It made made me laugh out loud because on radio yesterday I really was a little bit. I you know. Of course the people that can't stand Kirk think I'm insufferable talking about Kirk. The people that really like Kirk you know are like God. You didn't go off enough like you. This was the moment but Zach was definitely perceptive because I felt this way yesterday I was like I felt like I do know what could be coming on Saturday. I was glad he played well. Tommy I was thrilled for him that he's that his team won the game the way they want it with with him. Engineering an absolute fabulous drive in overtime. And I mentioned this this yesterday but a lot of people thought. Oh my God and this is the false narrative right. That's that's been about Kirk. His whole career is the sort of manifests manifested itself self on Sunday with. That's the first time he's ever done that at the end of a game no. It's actually his fourteenth career. Fourth quarter or overtime game winning drive fourteen team a not not as I But anyway Zach was right. I was happy for him. I recognized it to be his career moment to date eight but I was hesitant to gloat too much because I know that Saturday against the niners he could go out and play poorly against a really good team and a really good defensive team or Tommy. He could play great but his team loses the game and he's right back to where he was before for Sunday with people creating false narratives about his career saying he never plays well with the game on the line. He can't do this he can't do that except except now they'll have to say except for that one time remember in the playoffs against New Orleans. It won't be accurate but it won't matter because his critics will take it and run with it so yeah I I think that's what was in my mind yesterday because I know this argument that you've seen you followed all the people that take me on Kirk all the people that are back me and all the people that that come at me it's been a fun back and forth thing but it's like one week there right the next week. I'm right so I gotta be careful. Yeah.

"Williams back into the building. My question to you is why would you want Trent Williams back in the building. I mean if you're building something new here I mean I had had some move for Trite Williams change in the past year. If you could trade him yeah it is. It's funny because I would have traded a year ago as you know UH-HUH I would've traded him during the summer early in the season before the trade deadline et Cetera. But I'm sort of in this mode right now. I think I I still think think it would make sense to trade him. You know I do but I'm sort of in this mode of and I'll I'll just dove tail off of what you were talking about to get to this S. because I've talked about this a little bit on the show Over the last couple of shows I think in GonNa read you this tweet that I got from Greg last night right. Kevin why are you okay with the Carolina North Movement you know referring to Ron Rivera. Hiring everybody he worked with Worked with and Foreign Carolina China and then he of course proceeded to tell me about Ron Rivera. Six losing regular seasons nine years in the Panthers Haven't won a playoff game for years Yada Yada Yada and he ended the tweet with it. Just doesn't seem like a great idea to me. Why does it to you and I have sort of answered this before but maybe not with you on on the show? I'm not as a fan. I I wasn't looking for a great idea. I don't think they're capable of great the ideas and when they've had I'm looking for a new idea. I think all of us just wanted something new you know asking for great is a big ask with this owner. Now when they've had good ideas in the past they've pretty much messed those up. You know Marty was a really good idea. Mess it up. Gibbs was a really good idea. Should've been a much better but Dan in Vinnie. Were still involved so they messed it. Up Shanahan was a solid idea. But he brought Bruce in simultaneously. Amy Sleet and I said this morning. It's like Dan Bruce Together. Were like you know a couple of monkeys with bottle rockets in a room full of talented adults. You know thinking about this weekend coming up Kyle. Shanahan versus Kirk cousins and Matt Leflore and the other NFC game aim versus Seattle and the defending champion is coached by Sean mcvay. Like you'd think about Redskins Park six years ago. That building was filled with future. Playoff playoff coaches a playoff quarterback. And all the While you know Dan and Bruce Smoking cigars drinking cores lights playing. PUTT PUTT in Bruce's office and plotting to get rid of Shanahan's and and plotting to put. Rg Three back into the starting lineup. With Jake Grooten as the new coach. Coach Bruce Bruce knew very well and knew he could control on the scale of ideas Tommy. That wasn't one of their best. So it's like I'm not looking for great I'm I'm looking for something new doesn't mean better. It just means new like the old was bad all time bad here recently. The new at least includes a very good coach. Who probably would have been better off going somewhere else? Okay you and I both agree on that. That's true but he is here very likely likely because jokey Joe Gibbs told him it could work and I don't care how much of the Panthers Organization he brings with him the more new who faces the better. The old faces never won. Anything in certainly. Didn't make me think that they were irreplaceable. I've been very entertained and I don't know if you've been the the same about the handwringing in the angst over. Oh my God Eric Schafer you gotTa keep are safer. I mean my God I mean some of. It's coming from people we know. And I'm like are you F ing serious. You don't know anything about Eric Schafer. And what's Enrique percent. What's really entertaining about? This is it's like you had a quarterback here and you're okay that he's gone. But you gotTa Keep Eric Schafer like are you kidding me. It's just it's so it's so insane but you know this is sort of what. The organization's turned a lot of us into over the years. Is that we're you know. We're we're bipolar. Solar we are. ADHD we don't know if we're coming over going on any of this but my point is this. I absolutely don't care. They're and I'm all for Changes Carolina move north. We want Trent Williams back. If that's what Ron once and runs allowed allowed to get what he gets to me if he gets what he wants. That will be the first indication that maybe things are starting to change now. Obviously the owner might one. I'm Trent back as well. But I don't care what Ron Rivera does. I'm all in on Ron Rivera. Because it's the best and latest of the new ideas. That's where I am right now. They don't help desperate. That is I very aware of it is. But it's it's like.

But it's not like there's you're talking about two elite and proud route franchises from yesteryear that both of them have been brought to their collective knees over the last two decades by two owners who have not been able to figure it out. No you're right. I I absolutely two franchises that it in the seventies and eighties or or considered a gold standard in the NFC. Yeah not anymore no not anymore. So we'll see Mike McCarthy.

"The dotted line. How does Jason Garrett satisfied the Rooney rule requirements red hair? I mean seriously. There's no possible way they're hiring Jason Garrett. Although I'm looking up Jason Gear because I wanted to see where he played I know. He's always coached in Dallas Actually he coached for Two years in Miami's The quarterbacks coach I didn't realize it but you know he played late for the giants from two thousand two thousand three. He actually played a was on their roster. Any backed up Kerry Collins in New York in the early two thousands which means he would have been on that team that went to the super bowl loss to the ravens. I didn't realize that right. Now if take giant you have to hire somebody that nobody knows about though. They can't hate them. Yeah like like drafting Daniel Jones You know nobody somebody like look I think. Marvin Lewis is a good football coach. But I don't think this is can hire him either. I I think the fans would go. Nuts Gino Jason Garrett. Apparently spoke at an owner's meeting being last spring. I think it was. I was reading about this over the weekend before it became official that he was gone in Dallas and apparently wowed the audience which was Owners and I. I can't remember where I read this. Tommy but basically was a paragraph that said Jason Garrett is an impressive person He. He spoke at the owners meetings last spring and everybody walked out of that room. Incredibly impressed with Jay Garrick. Clearly jared didn't want to move on from him he he loves Jason Garrett and maybe even in those three or four years of him playing when the mirror zone the team and they still own the team in the early two thousands along with their her recent impressions of him. Maybe they're just really impressed with Jason Garrett the person they can't hire him no you can't hire again he's just can't do it that I mean the the backlash which is the two severe So this is the New York giants were talking talking about.

"How can the north carolina court conclude that this is impermissible gerrymandering. The answer is the same way that the kansas state supreme court could find broader protections for the right to abortion under the kansas. It's a state constitution then in the u._s. Constitution so page two hundred two is where the legal analysis here begins. It starts off again. I'm gonna hit the high points <hes> it. It starts off by by noting that standing under north carolina law is is more broad than under federal law and then there's a lengthy discussion of rubio this <hes> begins begins a page to ninety eight paragraph nineteen and it says <hes> basically it says rubio's a terrible decision it says <hes> the supreme court noted all of these problems with blatant examples of partisanship driving districting decisions and that the congressional maps in that case were quote highly partisan by any measure and of quote and then kind of dryly it says nonetheless supreme court concluded in the majority opinion that partisan partisan gerrymandering claims and this is quoting from present political questions beyond the reach of the federal courts and then the attala cise federal and it gets that little citation that says has emphasis added and their arguments well. That's great and all <hes> you're not in federal court. You're in state court and we are free to note note that the north carolina state constitution offers more protections and is more expensive than the federal constitution so they located hated. Those protections in in three major areas andy a each of these. I think are really really interesting right so first north carolina china their their declaration of rights article one section ten of their state constitution has a free elections clause it says quote all elections shins shall be free and and the trial court here says the free elections clauses one of those clauses that makes the north carolina constitution more detailed and more specific specific than the federal constitution in the protection of the rights of its citizens <hes> the u._s. Constitution doesn't have a free elections clause although several other state constitutions russians do what does what does that mean exactly free. <hes> does that entail. That's the whole law. That's the whole wording is just the election is is free so yeah. Here's here's here's the way to think about this. The north carolina state constitution has a preamble right preamble but we the people of the state of north carolina <hes> for the preservation of the american union and the existence of our civil political and religious liberties you know there's a reference of being grateful to almighty god god whatever do for the more certain security thereof and for the government of the state or dane and establish this constitution and then article one is the declaration of rights so it's the north carolina equivalent of the federal bill of rights and like the federal bill of rights these are positions of principle right they they're short statements that say we ought to be self evident that all persons are created equal right all political powers vested in and derived from the people and all government of originates from the people is founded upon their will only is instituted solely for the good of the whole that was section to for example <hes> and so section ten just says it's called free elections and it says all elections shall be free what it means by free then gets interpreted rated bhai state case law in in the same way that what the first amendment reads when it says the freedom of the press shall not be bridge right what what freedom of the press means is defined by supreme court case law well similarly broad principles <hes> get explicatives it over time <hes> in state supreme court jurisprudence and the free elections provision it looks like is it is somewhat clear from from the history of north carolina jurisprudence <hes> that <hes> <hes> that that an individual can locate some right some affirmative right.

"Hundred host Mark Thomas. Thanks again for joining us here on Carolina, focus, it's election season. And we were speaking last week as I mentioned earlier with the board of elections director about election processes and things that go on as far as voting and all the work that goes into putting on an election and this week, we're focusing on what is actually going to be on the ballot especially specifically here in North Carolina. And when it comes to one thing, and you may have heard that there are some constitutional amendments that are up for a vote. This is one thing that the citizens do get to vote on in North Carolina and implement the legislature puts together a constitutional amendment and then puts it on the ballot. And we the people get to vote up or down on these particular measures. And this is a little bit different this year because we've got six amendments that are on the ballot. Which is I don't know if there's ever been a time where there have been this many constitutional amendments offered up to the citizens of North Carolina. I stand to be corrected. But it certainly I I can't recall ever seeing this much. Constitutionality being determined in a given election and somebody here at WBZ who has been looking into these amendments in depth is Brett Jensen. Brett, welcome to Carolina, focus your first time on the program. I'm sure you're thrilled. I am. And I just love the fact that you use the tencent word constitutionality. That's also that's how the real world. But that's awesome. It's kind of like west analogy their old enough. But yeah, it's it's really unusual to have this many amendments. And you know, we got a I guess you could say we have a six pack of amendments that we're looking at this time, and you've been looking into these as part of your job here at WBZ in the newsroom and. I guess what? Are we looking at here because we've seen ads, you know? We've heard some controversies about the governor's all support the governor's don't support all the living ex governors are banded together in joining the current governor. And so on and there's been some controversy there as to who actually supports what? But what are the what are these amendments all about? What are we looking at here? Some of them are completely useless. They mean almost absolutely nothing will change almost absolutely nothing. And then some of them have some pretty big significant impact. And then a couple of them are exceedingly convoluted, and you would never know what necessarily you're voting for when you look at the ballot one of the ballots, which may maybe the most convoluted and most confusing of all the amendments is basically Twenty-three words on the ballot is only twenty three words, and you really don't at sounds great on the ballot and says, hey, let's put the. Together an amendment. We'll have a bipartisan election committee. Well, and it sounds great. They like, okay, we'll have Republicans and Democrats four of each on a committee and what we'll do is. We'll get these together to make sure everything runs smoothly in the world of elections and everything's fair and fair. Well, the problem is currently it stands at nine people now, and there's also no pointer ship where the governor gets dislike people why we governing gets like four people from this party four people from that party. And then one person the tiebreaker if you will the ninth person who has no party affiliation. So do they have to be registered unaffiliated? Yes. Yes, they do. Well, that would take away all the power from the governor to appoint these people from each party, and it would make it strictly as state legislature where they would go. Okay. We're gonna have four Republicans four Democrats. Now, there's no tiebreaker. If there's an issue, it just stands a tiebreaker next thing, you know, it could go to court if they have to vote on certain things, whether or not they want to redo district lines or whatever, you know, which which can happen now stands at four and four because the way politics works. Now, you very rarely have crossover and the four Democrats are gonna vote one way or the four Republicans are probably gonna vote the other way. And which means now, I if there's a tie into the discus thrown away or it goes to court. Well, let me ask you one question last week. We spoke with Michael Dickerson who is the head of the Mecklenburg county board of elections about ballot access was one of the things and previously in previous weeks. You know, the house. District. Nine race is very contentious I interviewed Mr. Harris, who's the Republican I interviewed the gentleman who was the libertarian candidate who is on the ballot. The democratic candidate did not reply to my requests, nor has he replied to anyone else's requests. But I I don't necessarily want to get into that particular race in those particular people, but I bring that up because one of the things that mister Dickerson pointed out last week is in North Carolina. There are five recognized political parties. There is the Republicans. You've heard of them you've heard of the Democrats have you heard of them libertarians, you probably have heard of them. But the green party in the constitution party are also on legally allowed to put up candidates for elections in the state. Why are we looking at a quote, unquote bipartisan? Because sections board when there are there. It should be a. What's five Quint? Yes. Or pet. You pick 'em pet. Okay. Pent? Okay. So. A Pentagon quintuplets. Yeah. Yeah. It'd be a quick partisan. Yep. Okay. Not a bipartisan why it has anybody? I know the answer to the question already as anybody brought this up. And the reason is is because I think they have to pick elected legislatures people who are already in the legislative branch were already representing the state. But my question to you is does the ballot initiative does this constitutional amendment? Have the words in it, Republican and democrat it says by parson says a bipartisan state board of ethics and elections enforcement. Meaning that the legislatures would have to make the legislators would have to pick and select all eight appointees as opposed to the governor. So if someone should get elected to the North Carolina legislature. I'm people are always demanding a third party option. They don't follow through on at the polls is kind of like when you ask people. You wanna have, you know, healthy options on your menu at the McDonald's, and yes, I do they tell the surveyor. But then when they go in order the stuff, right? It's kind of like that someone should get elected. I mean is there any kind of provision for allowing for another party to gain traction in the state or are we or are we looking at a situation where they're basically saying we're it. Well, I mean. I know this. This isn't something that you'd probably have even looked into. But I mean, this is the first thing that strikes me because we've got more than two parties that are legally allowed to put candidates on the ballot. If any of them get elected than they would be eligible. The problem is none of them are elected. And that's the big problem. So once they are in Raleigh in you are elected as a state legislature. Then is a state Representative then you've become eligible. But if you're not if you're just a mayor in Wilson, North Carolina, and you're part of the libertarian party that doesn't do you any good? I understand that. But I mean, if you do get, but if they if if someone should get elected to the to the state house, they become eligible they become eligible. Yes. Okay. Yeah. That was you know, because it's of course, since they would be the only ones would they? Who are they picking are they picking their friends and relatives to be on this board is that how that well. You would have the committee that would decide the legislature would vote on. Okay. Do we agree that these four Republicans and these four Democrats and people would vote, and you could have Democrats going. Yeah. I don't want this particular Republican or so it's it's just going to be a mess as apoe as opposed to the governor's going. Okay. We'll do this for we'll do that for. Then we've got an unbiased non-party-affiliated number nine to break ties. It sounds like if this goes through it's going to really create more problem unnecessary problems since we already have this board. Yes. Absolutely. It's it. It sounds like there's a light at the end of the tunnel in it is in fact, a train coming why? Which is why all six living governors, Republican and democrat are against this Bill. All six six are completely against this amendment. Now, there's another amendment that the all six or against as well. Correct. Ten what what would that be? So right now, it's the judicial amendment. And so right now the way it stands, let's say Mark, you're a judge and for health reasons, you have to retire because as we know all judges are elected to their posts you have to retire because of health issues or whatever and you've got a year to go in your term as it stands. Now. The governor picks your interim replacement until the next election, and then the next election that people decide who they want, but he has to pick an interim selection the amendment would say this. The legis state legislator body, which is controlled by Republicans for now for now they pick. They were the the state legislature picks a group of they have to pick at least two potential candidates to fill that seat. And let's say the guy who retired might be leaning left or a democrat state legislature goes all right? Here's two Republicans. And if the governor says of the choices you have to have at least two then the governor's supposed to pick from the group slected by or the nominees selected by the state legislature. But let's say the governor doesn't like any of those guys those two guys or three guys before guys will women. What what have? Yes. If he says, no, no, no, I don't like any of these people. The state legislature goes to bed you've got ten days to make a choice. And if you don't make a choice in ten days, we're gonna get to make the pick for you. Which takes it completely out of the governor's hands. And if you've got a Republican governor with a democratic legislature or vice versa in this case or democrat governor with a Republican state legislature. Then it's just going to be chaos, and again, the governor should you know, if he goes, okay? Yeah. Republican retired. But I'm gonna put this democrat. Interim in there. And then at the next election that people can decide, but basically this is the state legislature saying we can pick whoever we want to pick because you had to pick one of our people. And if you don't pick them we could figure anymore. Anyway, right. That's what this amendment is an all six living governors, Republican and democrat are against this Bill, and we're speaking with Brett Jensen from WBZ news here on Carolina, focus about the six constitutional amendments that are on the ballot. This November coming up in less than two weeks right now here on Carolina, focus. I'm your host. Mark Thomas, and we talked about the fact that we've got the legislature the governor's in these particular cases opposing these two amendments you've got a voter ID Bill that is on there as well. Give us a thumb because this is something that's been kicked around for years here in North Carolina and other states as well. And the the legislature apparently passed a law saying, you know, here's a voter ID law, and it was thrown out by the courts. And now they've got to come back and come up with a different one where a different methodology. What what's going on with this?.

Once again on Carolina, focus, it's gosh. It's turning the middle Tober already and things are going on. And that's what we like to talk about here on Carolina, focus and one thing. I'll be honest. I have little to no knowledge of. But I have someone here in the studio that's going to help us all out. And those of you who listen to the link are going to recognize the lovely voice of Ramona Holloway. Hi, mark. Thank you so much for having me on your show. It's it's great to have you. I mean, we've worked we've known each other for a couple of weeks. Now, we're like nearly twenty years almost one of the two it's good to have you on.

And here's the wonderful thing this gala, supports Carolina breast friends, which is a breast cancer support organisation right here in the Carolinas, and it's helping women in the Carolinas. Right. I can't tell you. I'll tell you a little bit about please mice association. Yeah. How did you get involved with this years ago? Probably maybe fifteen years ago. Over the link. We had a program called link leading ladies women were nominated for the positive things. They were doing in our community and one of those women was Christie Adams evil. She was nominated for the work. She was doing on behalf of breast cancer survivors now on the day that I was supposed to interview Christie for her radio interview. That was a part of this big program. We were doing I was having one of those days mart one of those days. One of those days, I got dressed for work. And then I think spilled something on my shirt on my way out and I had to change my clothes. And then I was going to stop at the dry cleaners on my way to the dry cleaners. You know, probably somebody cut me off in traffic. And then when I got to the cleaners they were closed at the time, then when they should have been open. I was just one of those days. So by the time I got to the studio I was a little bit late. And I walked in complaining. Oh, sorry. I'm late. This. And just all up in my self. And I met Christie, and she was standing there in her pink bandanna because thanks to the breast cancer treatment. She was receiving. She had already started to lose her hair. And she started talking to me about having breast cancer. And she told me that. Having breast cancer was the biggest best gift she had ever been given. Tears immediately because I think of just the ball of confusion that I rolled into the studio as and here, she was calm, cool and collected telling me. What a gift she'd been given. Now. I'd never heard anybody talk about cancer as a gift usually it's talked about as a curse. But here's the way this amazing woman framed it. That because of her breast cancer diagnosis, she'd.
