A conversation on why you should vote
"Welcome back to another episode of that money though friends we have just a few weeks left before the general election it's happening November third. The day is finally here and we WANNA. Talk about the election this episode because many states are going to be having their deadlines for which which you can register usually happening in October depending on your states look that up and we thought it'd be important to visit with all of you why it's so important to vote. We actually asked them of our listeners what are the three reasons that you're voting and? They said in. His off. Yes. So from the Angelo from the Geek Life, we all knew America had major issues but these four issues have shown us how bad things could really be. He's four years. Yeah. A number to worry about a month away from being still being society e and number three I'm O'Brien in. America. And I grew up in fear and don't want my kids to do. So those reasons we love him. Thank you. and. Then we had the folks from lat. Next point of view podcast. They said that healthcare is the number one issue because less people in the US have access to healthcare, which is a big deal when you're experiencing global pandemic number two, the economy, and then number three `immigration is that these are the three reasons for black next point of view. All right. So we got Joe, Sparkman, who said number one to dump trump Helje number to fight racism and number three fight sexism Mcginn. grazes. And then we had one more and lease said healthcare and immigration for sure. So I mean, there's so many reasons to vote for this election. We have a huge opportunity coming up to course correct the past four years but rather than focusing on us whoever is trump and who by the way we've decided on a shelley and mutually decided actually decided but I agree we're gonNA retire putting trump in the trash can there's just too many trump's there. So we don't have to do that here. There's Lore we're not doing it. WOULDA yeah. He's already there. So if you're. Even, you're no longer allowed to put trump in there because he's there's too many of them in there any who so we're going to focus not on that but instead like what are we voting for? It's not just against trump, but there's plenty of things to vote for. So entertain that why are you gonNa vote this November So. Many reasons and I mean ultimately what I want most is for everyone to live there moth antic fulfilling and healthy lives and I think in order for us to be able to do that, we need to have living wages we need to be able to live where we want without fear. We need to have equal access to education and opportunities, and we need to have access to safe in green communities and environments. Amen, I mean all that can go deeper into a few things and I know Brenda you'll share some with us, but I think I vote because environmental justice and Climate Change I. Think are one of the most urgent issues of our generation and trump has shown us that they do not care about the trump administration says that it did not care about that they recently rolled. Back Environmental Procedural protections under the Environmental Policy Act. So basically, you can build your highways, your pipelines and power plants without consideration of a lot of the harmful effects that they can cause on our communities and environmentally, and also our communities, and you know it's not a surprise that most of the communities that are affected by these types of this construction are Brown and black communities. That's so true. So and then along with that I'm also voting because I care about black lives and I care about criminal justice reform, and again, the trump administration has shown this time and time again that they're willing to put the economy before human lives are willing to protect professor percents. Supremacy and that's Discussed the Americans and we've seen that in how we handled pandemic that he literally cared more about you know the economy than human lives especially. Brown. Black lives we've seen how eases uses platform twitter and other social media insight, right wing violence, and that's been really scary for for me to release it lane actual literal. You know the young man is a shit that shot people and what we've known for a long time is that we really need to re imagine how our criminal justice system works and we know that the trump administration has does not is not putting that as a priority and I know that a lot of people will say. For Sure Joe Biden did help author the crime bill and Nineteen ninety-four. But I believe I believe in the power of change and I believe from what I've seen with from Biden including Kamala that they're willing to course correct and they definitely care more about reimagining and change criminal justice system than than trump does that's one hundred percent true. Those are excellent reasons. One hundred percent concur with that. How about you? Brenda, what are the? What are a few reasons I know there are so many reasons but what if you want to call out for listeners? So many definitely underscore everything that you said, but I think it's good for everyone to remember that the president can do so much including appointing, supreme, court justices, and other federal federal federal judges. So a good reason to vote is the courts you maybe don't like Biden. Harris don't even think about them just think about what's at stake. So the president of the United States gets to appoint judges, and if we remember there's been lots of Supreme Court battles from Dhaka from ACA to reproductive and lgbtq rights in this court the Supreme Court is all over the place that he they're mostly conservative. got to a point to super right wing horrible people including Justice Cavanaugh a rapist, and also eight RPG is eighty seven years old and she's battled cancer multiple times. So it's very likely that whoever wins in November they're to be able to appoint another Supreme Court justice and what's at stake we Really can't afford that.
Riot declared in Seattle as protests continue
"Started started as as a a peaceful demonstration with thousands of protesters in downtown Seattle last night has led to the city's poor Lise. Declare a riot correspondent Lucy Cavanaugh said The rally began as a show of solidarity with protests and with protesters in Portland, where unidentified federal agencies wearing camouflage had been seen on video taking protesters into unmarked van Seattle police say they've made at least 16 arrests so far.

Justice Ginsburg reveals she's battling cancer recurrence
"Ruth Bader GINSBURG has recurrence of her cancer and is. Taking chemotherapy so I. JUST WANNA play out a scenario here and get your thinking about it. Let's assume that. There is a vacancy on the Supreme Court between now and next January twenty and mitch, McConnell and Donald Trump. Decide to do the opposite of what they did with Merrick garland refusing what McConnell did with American, refused to have him about. Trump nominates a conservative justice to replace Ruth Bader GINSBURG. He could even do that after he loses the election in November. There's a lame Duck Senate and Mitch McConnell decides to push that through while he still has the votes. What would be the appropriate response from people on your side of the political divide to such a scenario? I. Mean I think you know maybe mass protests on a scale that we have not yet seen Ryan, I mean we've seen I. Think again and again protests, I we? The women's March where the which were the biggest protests ever up until that time I? Think those have now been exceeded by these black lives matter protest and I think that if you. I would like to think that you know in such a situation. You would have people in the streets and mass once again and I think one of the things that we've seen with these most recent black lives matter protests is how protests can work. Rate is how they can I don't I'm not sure I. I am sure I don't think they would stop. Mitch McConnell from I'm trying to think of a non obscene way to describe what Mitch McConnell with due to the future of democracy. Rape and I don't think that they would stop him, but you know you never know i. mean even the protests around Justice Cavanaugh. At least bought people a week right when those investigations were going on and and Jeff Flake voted to. Continue the investigation for one week and so. You know it would certainly deserve a. A mass uprising were they to sort of. Book the problem that we've had. It's a big problem in this country, and that it has been highlighted by the nightmare of the trump administration is minority rule. You know that you had minority president for the second time in. Two decades that you have a Senate controlled by a small minority of the country. That is able to put. People onto a supreme court that will. Again sort of rule against the interests of the majority I mean I think there's for obvious reasons the constitution is like has been written such as to head off a tyranny of the majority. What we have now a tyranny of the minority, and if Donald Trump were able to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg were able to deal the death. Blow to Roe versus Wade. You know sort of a preemptive deathblow to any kind of big sweeping economic legislation that a binded administration would need to pass in order to shore up a quickly failing economy and A. catastrophically failing health care system. Rate I think if the democratic process fails in giving people a way to address that than the way to address, that is through mass non-violent action.
Supreme Court Issues Key Rulings on Trump's Finances
"On the final day of its term, the Supreme Court issued two highly anticipated rulings involving president trump's financial records. One decision clears the way for Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to potentially view the president's taxes. The other was a mixed decision involving congressional efforts to obtain the president's personal financial documents both were sent back to lower courts for further consideration. Joining me now with more details is our legal affairs reporter Brent Kendall. So rent. The court rejected the president's efforts to block New York subpoena seeking his tax records, but issued a mixed ruling in a related case involving subpoenas from House Democrats. Can you tell us more about these rulings? And why in the congressional case? It was a mixed ruling. On the congressional case we'll start there that the court made pretty clear that it was not at all satisfied with either president trump's position. which the court said would really neuter Congress and make it harder for the legislative branch to do investigation while also being equally dissatisfied with Congress's position here and said look. Lawmakers you're under the belief that you can just get almost anything you want under the Sun, and the the you know, the president here is different. This is about his personal papers, and we really do need to give more scrutiny here to make sure that these requests are targeted and limited and these. Don't harass the president or become a really burdensome on him in some ways that case ended up as kind of a draw, and we will have significant further lower proceedings, and it's. It's hard to know at this point at the end of the day whether Congress is going to get. Any some all of these records that it is seeking the one thing we do know. It's extremely unlikely that they're going to get any of them before the election in November The vans case with a lot clearer and a lot. More of a straight forward and fairly sweeping loss for the president who argued that he was absolutely immune from having his financial information, disclosed or turned over to state prosecutors Wyle. He was in office, and the court flatly rejected that claim and basically sided with newer prosecutors and all their basic. That case isn't completely resolved. either. The president still potentially has more arguments. He can make against the subpoenas which he will certainly try to do in the lower courts, but it did remove a big roadblock for prosecutors in Manhattan who are examining whether President, trump or people close to him violated any state record keeping laws. So these separate cases, both came down and seven to two votes, and the president's appointees neal gorsuch and bright cavanaugh were in the majority. What do you make of that breakdown? While I mean it's a pretty remarkable thing and most of the big cases here right at the end of the term, the chief justice avoided five four rulings, and so for example we had some big religious freedom cases that were issued on Wednesday and have been the kinds of cases in the past. We're liberal justices, all descended and they're. The just got to the Liberals to join with the Conservatives, and what is was a pair of fairly conservative rulings in favor of religious institutions, and then flipping things around today we had the chief justice in the four liberal justices, and the chief was also bring along justices, neal gorsuch and Brett Cavanaugh, who are both trump appointees and to the majority in both of these rulings, those two didn't agree on all the same reasoning, but joined the outcomes. We ended up out of the nine justices with only two dissenters justices clarence. Thomas Samuel Alito. Tell us more about what happens next. For these two cases, what questions are now left for the lower courts? especially as we're looking ahead to the November election, even if these issues won't be resolved by then. There are a lot more issues for the lower courts in the congressional cases, basically because the Supreme Court crafted a whole new set of standards, the judges should now look out for these kinds of disputes. I mean the disputes. Themselves are pretty rare, normally congress and the White House work out their differences when Congress wants to have people testify when they want information. But now the court is basically said you lower chords take these new standards. We've articulated that we think will provide some protections to the president as well as some protections to Congress and sort out who's got the better argument here. That's going to take time. The New York case may take a little less time. The president still has some arguments available to him to contest the criminal subpoena here to his accountant's but they're more straightforward at. That courts can deal with more quickly, but even there it's going to take time, and even if he loses and the accountants turnover this information to Manhattan prosecutors. This comes in the context of a secret grand jury proceeding, and it will be many months, if ever, before details of of what prosecutors learn would become public. And the president quickly responded to these rulings on twitter. We are hearing responses. Continue to roll in. Tell me a little bit about your impressions of what he's been saying well, the president has been frustrated with a Supreme Court on several of its rulings, including one day invalidated his cancellation of the Dhaka and program and right after the ruling came out today, and he expressed clear frustration on twitter that this case would continue and express his views that this is sort of a political partisan prosecution that's designed to harass him, and he said that it was not fair to him or his administration. While the president was frustrated with the rulings today. Sivan's in New York. The prosecutor who is leading this investigation was thrilled and said this was a day really where the Supreme Court affirmed the rule of law that is applied to the president, just like everybody else. And he said now his team would get back to doing the business that had been doing of investigating this case and proceeding as it had planned to proceed, while also knowing they're still future battles ahead against president trump and his lawyers as this probe continues. France it's been a busy few weeks as supreme. Court now heads into its recess. Any final thoughts that you're leaving with well. It was a really big momentous term, even though the court ended up hearing less cases than it had planned because of corona virus, but we had these major rulings today on presidential power. We've had blockbuster rulings on religious freedom on gay rights in the workplace on the DACA immigration case. A lot at the court has tackled, and so it will take at at least a little bit of a breather now while we all sort out what's on the horizon. Wall Street Journal. Legal, affairs reporter Brent Kendall Brent thank you so much for joining me sure. Thank thank you.
Trump says he’s a victim of ‘political prosecution’ after Supreme Court rulings
"He's the victim of a political prosecution. House Speaker Pelosi says Supreme Court Action Today shows no president is above the law. In one ruling, the court gave New York City prosecutors the OK to pursue Mr Trump's financial records and a criminal case legal analyst Thane Rosenbaum. This is a terrible blow to the president, especially since the two justices he appointed to the Supreme Court. Norsigian. Cavanaugh voted with the majority, even though Cavanaugh as a young lawyer, once wrote that president should always be immune from prosecution while in office. The court obviously rejected the argument that a president enjoys broad immunity from prosecution then. Still, the records may never make it past the grand jury, and the president's lawyers can make new arguments in a lower court. The other ruling blocked House Democrats from getting Mr Trump's records. Legal analyst Jonathan Turley. If President Trump claims any victory, it will be over time, he succeeded in delaying any disclosure of this information. And these decisions will guarantee that this can just got kicked down the road. Past the next election. The situation only
Supreme Court reinforces ban on robocalls to mobile phones
"You'll like the Supreme Court also ruled today. In favor of a federal law prohibiting robo calls to cell phones and home phones. A B C's Aaron Carter Ski Americans passionately disagree about many things, the Supreme Court said. But they are largely united in their disdain for robo calls. Political and nonprofit organization still cannot make political robo calls to cell phones, and the court has now struck down a 2015 carve out for government debt collectors. A decision written by Justice, Cavanaugh said. Congress has impermissibly favour debt collection speech over political and other speech in violation of the First Amendment. Aaron Carter
Supreme Court throws out Louisiana abortion restrictions
"Been talking to Stephen Black professor at the University of Texas Law School about the decision today We're a divided Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that opponents said would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts provided the crucial vote during the court's liberal justices in a 5 to 4 majority. So Justice Stephen Breyer, who also wrote the majority opinion in the Texas Case, wrote the majority opinion here did he reiterated his reasoning in the Texas case, or did he just follow precedent? No American. I think a lot of the plurality of him by the prior was very much not just reiterating what he wrote for the majority four years ago in the home of health case, but also do not carefully trying to explain why that decision for your so should control the case. Why the Louisiana line is not in any material way. Actually, or legally different fromthe law that the court threw out in Texas four years ago. If I can, you know for Brier, the queue is to show why these cases are not the similar And you know, I don't get you. Justice. Roberts actually agreed with that. I think you just agreed with the endorsement of the analysis from the earlier decision on hold and help if that's why he felt obliged and compelled to write separately. What was the thread running through the dissenting opinions? What's interesting about this case is, you know if you read the sentinel opinions that actually very little tune about roar, Casey and a whole lot about standing, you know, I think for the defenders, the ground they were hoping in this case would be resolved on Was that the abortion providers June Medical Services, etcetera weren't proper parties. The challenge Louisiana long the first place that would have allowed the court sidestep a major ruling on the stuff into scope of the right to pursue a pre viability abortion. But of course, there were consequences all his own indignant much harder for a court to hear these kinds of pieces going forward, so No, I think for the dissenters for justice Promise Justice Alito. The quarters from Kavanaugh know there at least stated opposition here with principally to the court allow in this case to reach America at all. I suspect June that that no one will be surprised if no. Were those marriage to be properly before them. They just hostile to them that know the descent maybe focus on stand them, but I think it's not hard to imagine that there are objections on the merits behind them as well. So during his confirmation hearings, Justice Cavanaugh was questioned again and again on Roe v. Wade, and he said he would follow precedent. Did he veer from that in this decision? I don't think so. I mean, just, Kavanaugh wrote only a very short to page dissent, although he joined a large chunk of just much longer defense. You know, I think Kavanaugh is a little bit cagey and careful on exactly that point. Doesn't say a lot about roar. Casey. He really put it on the procedural question of whether these planets had standin on why he thinks that matter should have been read ended the trial court traditional back finding on that question. But, you know, I think folks are not gonna have trouble reason. If you imagine this is You know, suitable and without necessarily saying that he's probably a reliable vote for the conservatives in a case where the merits of an abortion restriction really aren't properly before the court. You know, I don't think it's directly inconsistent with anything, he said during the confirmation process, But Matt it certainly doesn't come running like wall. We've heard a lot about Justice Roberts Justice Gorsuch Has Cavanaugh been a reliable conservative vote during his first term here, I think, for the most part, I mean, I think there's one or two paces June where You know he's been on the other side. We're siding with the progressive on Ly one that comes to mind when you was the deciding vote on. It wasn't an especially major contention case that without an antitrust case You know, I think he's probably been in some respects more reliable in a smaller data set as a conservative vote than justice. Gorsuch has been, obviously, of course, it's you know, it's fresh off of the Majority opinion he wrote in the LGBT discrimination case, You know, so I think I think it's pretty clear that injustice. Cavanaugh, the conservative, got what they were hoping for. Um Whether that hold across the larger data set, we'll see. But you know, I also think it's also a sign of the times. June. You know, we had a 30 year period We had a Supreme Court with No. Two very obvious swing. That justice is Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, where you could see these pretty profound shift in majorities from one case to the next. That's not where we are. Now we have a solid conservative majority and results, like the abortion case, don't change that. I think they just show that there are at least some elements that even the solid conservative majority won't transgress. This was the third time in two weeks that Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives in a blockbuster opinion. Is he now the next Justice Kennedy Oh, I think it's been clear June since Justice Cabin always confirmed to the Supreme Court that in most, not all but most of the high profile, divisive partisan No social and contentious cases before the Supreme Court. The departure of death of Kennedy puts to Justice Robert from the middle, and I think, you know we're seeing that this term in spades. It's not just his decisive vote today in the Louisiana abortion paid not just his majority opinion in the doc a case you know that he also joined Justice Gorsuch. In the LGBT discrimination case, So you know they're going to be out liars where it's not the chief Cruz the swing vote, But I think you know in the high profile cases more often than not, yes, where there's a 5 to 4 majority, and it's No for the conservatives who sent him the the one who will have been personally to switch sides with the chief justice John, I don't think that's because anything about the chief has changed. I think that because No. The court itself has changed. And because the kind of dispute the court is taken are increasingly grounds new towards ones where any of those five justices were going. Be disinclined Tio. Ride with the quote unquote conservative position. It's going to be John Roberts. Using this opinion and looking forward at some of the other opinions that are coming out, especially the decision on the subpoenas for Trump's financial records. Does this tell us anything about how justice Roberts may vote on that? I really don't think so. You know, I don't think that this is any kind of broader shift or pattern in how the chief justice instead of his job, you know, I think he's he's able to take that from cases differently. I mean, you know, right after we got the abortion opinion this morning, we got the chief justice's majority opinion. And that's the Buchanans, which was a very classically conservative separation of powers. Hold them from him. So I don't think we should read anything broader into his vote in these cases, other than the reality that he is now the Longboat And, you know, do not could show up again as early as you know the cases where they were coming down on Tuesday or the rest of this week or next week. You know, I don't think this is the last time this term that the chief going to be the swing vote, But I also don't think that you know the fact that he's this one wrote in some cases allows us to predict in which cases It most likely

Democrat Biden faces calls to address sexual-assault allegation
"Movement a debate is brewing over whether Joe Biden should respond to a recent allegations of sexual assault terror Reid accused Biden publicly last year of touching her neck and shoulders when she worked in the Senate office that was during the nineteen nineties the last month she changed her story to include a claim of sexual assault Biden's campaign has denied the accusations investigations by major news organizations including CBS news have been inconclusive house speaker Nancy Pelosi came to Biden's defense Thursday just days after formally endorsing his presidential campaign I have complete respect the whole me too movement I have four daughters and one son and there's a lot of excitement around the idea that women will be heard and be listened to there is also due process and the fact that Joe Biden is Joe Biden ugh there's been some statements from his campaign not his campaign but his former employees who ran his offices in the rest that there was never any records I have great comfort level with it is the situation as I see it with all the respect in the world for any woman who comes forward with all the highest regard for Joe Biden CVS and political reporter Caitlin Huey burns has been following this story and joins me now so Caitlyn tell us more about this allegation and efforts to corroborate it that's right will Joe Biden himself we have just learned is supposed to go on MSNBC tomorrow morning to address these allegations and that would be the first time in the thirty or so days since terror Reid brought these allegations forward and Joe Biden will have made a public statement himself so that's significant and that comes as pressure has been building from Democrats for Joe Biden to come out and address this now his campaign has said that this did not happen that this allegation is completely false what we have learned over the past few days and have kind of breathe new life into these allegations our reports showing that a neighbor and a brother of terror Reid have corroborated her account and we've we've seen several questions being raised about her account over the past several weeks and months and she had brought this forward initially when she had talked about the way in which five made her feel uncomfortable she did not talk about any sexual assault that came in a later interview us to there have been questions about those stories but because Biden hasn't addressed this in person publicly by the it has raised a lot of questions and so you can see that the pressure has been building on his campaign to address this and it looks like they will take that step tomorrow to house speaker Nancy Pelosi says that she is quote satisfied with the Biden campaigns response how important is her support in this matter well in the absence of a statement from buying himself it has really fallen to women lawmakers and leaders to come to his defense and so significant blows these comments there but we've also seen that this comes against the backdrop of Biden's starting the process to pick a running mate and remember he said that he will absolutely pick a woman running mates of several of those potential contenders like Kamilla Harris any clover shar Stacey Abrams Gretchen Whitmer and others has been out doing interviews trying to talk about the pandemic that's going on and the national response they've been wanting to be critical of trump's response but at every turn they have to also ask answer these questions about these allegations against Biden and because buying himself hadn't been out there answering questions were being asked them it really falls on to these women and kind of makes this a difficult position for them to be N. as these beef steaks are going on it kind of adds another layer to the bad job description really and so that's one element of this I should know that by now has not had a press conference since April second he has done several media interviews where he has not been asked about these allegations that of course will change tomorrow so I want to ask about another dimension to the story as well given given what we saw during the confirmation process for Supreme Court justice Frank Kavanagh could this situation now for Democrats in a difficult position going into November I think this presents a real challenge for Democrats and that's why you've seen many of them kind of urging at least privately buying to come forward and clear the air a little bit more at least provide some kind of public statement because you are right to mention those Cavanaugh hearings Democrats have made a point to kind of try and claim the moral high ground on the issue of sexual assault and harassment in this era of B. two going back to when senators ousted al Franken over allegations made against him that was kind of a a real first step in this effort by Democrats to be able to kind of clear their own tax and declare themselves the story on on these kinds of things and they really set a bar for themselves and so that's why when we come to allegations like this one it does raise a lot of questions about Democrats especially those who served on the Judiciary Committee during the capitol hearings several of them come on harassing the clover shark to name a few are considered to be a potential running mates for Joe Biden so this also raises an additional layer of scrutiny and questions about that and that's why you've seen this pressure building from Democrats for Joe Biden to address this issue now when we look at the statements coming from some of these women lawmakers and newsmakers responding to this they have said that terror Reid has the right to be heard that she should be heard and that these kinds of allegations should be taken seriously on the other hand they are also vouching for Biden's credentials on this as well his campaign has pointed to the way in which he co authored the reauthorization of the violence against women act it has kind of made his public life about this but again this does raise a lot of challenges for Democrats if they don't address this right now and raises questions about how they can kind of keep this issue going in November so this is one accusation against Joe Biden president trump has faced dozens of accusations from women some may ask is Joe Biden being held to a different standard and if so is it clear why it is important to note that this is just one allegation and there have not been any others that have come forward against Joe Biden said that's an important distinction but I think the reason that you are seeing this pressure applied is because Democrats have set the standard for themselves so you can argue that this is something that Democrats kind of have to reckon with when it comes to people in their own ranks I given the way in which they have really trying to kind of be at the forefront of this issue to lead on the issue of violence against women and kind of establish this moral high ground in the era of me too but it's showing the complications of that this whole dynamic is showing the challenges that could arise in in in ways it can kind of backfire and so that's kind of the dilemma that Democrats are facing now but it's important to note that this is a bar that they set for themselves up early on and something that they have continued to

"Hey CD everybody chill little bit. Thank you yeah so. I think that he starts right away. Obviously and I think it'll be him and Amari Cooper both playing some in the slot and some outside. I don't picture Michael. Gallup is a slot guy so I think they'll figure it out. Co playing the slot to Mario playing the slot. Play a lot of three wide receivers. And Yeah he'll be a starter and then he'll be the greatest draft pick in cowboys history. Ten years from now outside of starbuck starbuck was picked in the tenth round but he also found out like three days later in a newspaper. 'cause I'm pretty sure. He was deployed when he found out that he was picked. So yes CD. Lamb will start so D- Opinions on the number situation. I we haven't gotten official word yet. Ten eighty eight David drought seventeen. I kinda loved that too I was. I was good with that. Do you think they would honestly give eight upright now they WANNA give him? Ada Jerry's campaigning for him to wear Ada so we talked to CD after he was picked and he said I'm rocking ten. I know that's what I heard it. I and I was like. Oh my gosh and then Jerry. After the first round at his press conference was like let me tell you a really long story about my friend named Jerry. His last name was lamb. I think his first name was jerry but his last name was lamb and he wore eighty-eight at Arkansas. While Jerry was area passed away recently. And he's like. I really want CD to where which is very guilt. Trippy Jerry in honor of my friend. I want CD to wear eighty eight and carry on the tradition. And I'm like yeah I could see CD rock in the eighty eight but pick no you get to pick your number. You don't get to peer pressure. My guy in Iraq and Ada. Let's go where he wants to wear surprised when he came on your show and said that he was going to be rocking ten because as someone who previously had experience Around the equipment department. I don't think they have a number secured for him concrete. We just yet so when he came on it was like I'm wearing ten. I'm like what how like. Hey if you want afford your own half of number ten like I'm cool with that to like make ten the next specimen history. I'm here for a legacy of tens are eight so CD was a good pick. Everyone super excited about him. I think it's an obvious were high on that pig. What about out of the rest of the guys? Who's your favorite pick? The cowboys made all of them almost all of them. I know nothing about the quarterback from James Madison option. D I know nothing about the NUCCI But I did spend the last hour of the broadcast looking his tweets because he said something about Romo being terrible at some point when he was like fifteen. I just feel like he should have had foresight. Actually apparently he met with McCarthy when he came down here for the FCS championship and his dad or his brother is his basketball coach. And I'm like Bro. You like look a lot of our prospects did a really good job of wiping their social media and I respect that but his agent or whoever it was probably thought he was undrafted. Free agent material. Maybe they didn't let go that deep into it and here we are the quote is Tony. Romo is absolutely horrible and yeah well. That's much like deck deck had an anti Romo tweet in his past. That came out as soon as he became a cowboy. So it's a tradition like none other. Whoever gets drafted to the cowboys at place quarterback blasts Romao? The good news is I went through his entire history. Signed up for twitter and early two thousand fourteen and I read through it all nothing else. Bad in there Just the Romo shot fired. He really liked his girlfriend when he was fifteen. Yeah he was a big Fan of hers. I don't know what happened. Hurt looks like her account isn't maybe it has a new handle but last name it doesn't link to it anymore. I don't know Trevan digs trayvon digs. Stop SAYING TREVAN. Trayvon digs fifty at fifty. One was an awesome pick. Because again I promise you that was the top guy available. Their top guy on their board very top like it wasn't what do we need all of this time? It worked because they did need a corner and they got two guys in the first two picks that they really thought they wouldn't have a shot at I thought trayvon digs might end up being the picket seventeen if they lost chase on and and CJ Henderson and the top three receivers and Giovan. Ken Law than I thought there was a decent shot. Trayvon digs was going at seventeen and I think they were standing made it to fifty one folly. Think some teams corners. Hard to figure out because everybody all of them are so different like Aj trail went. Sixteen from Clemson. I think trayvon digs is better than him. I have no doubt about it. I think he's better than him. But teams see these guys. Different ways teams value different things and they got. They got lucky with their first. Pick to get lucky with their second. Pick I'm good with the third pick. I don't love it like I love. The I two Neville Gallimore. I like him. Don't love him. Sell Harry Potter make loves already. I'm the opposite. I love him. We're going to get your because of Neville longbottom honestly. Yeah like he could be the Neville Longbottom for you like he comes out of nowhere and all of a sudden he like casts a spell and saves the day like you don't know he could be. Our undercover hero was never the one that ended up killing the snake. What we're saying. Good job I novel so okay. Good beyond beyond the center will know eight. Skip to pick Reggie Robinson the Tulsa corner again. I think they got so according to me. They got like six best player in the draft at seventeen. They got somewhere around the twentieth. Best player in the draft at fifty. One this.

"What IS UP COWBOYS ATION. Happy Victory Monday. We're going to call it victory Monday because it's the closest thing we'll get to one of these things for a while and quite frankly. I am feeling what the cowboys did this weekend. But before that this girl's talking boys I'm your host Kelsey Charles joined by my co host by lovely co-host Meghan Murray. We have a special guest with us today. You might know him when Jeffrey Cavenaugh from one of our three the fan. Hello Jeff. Don't say hi to me before your Coho says no right. Hey y'all railroaded her on that. It's all good. What's up guys you know? I just like to hear my phone. John guys how we guys have. Rip Rip so obviously a really fun weakened in the books draft day. Three days of it. And I think overall we felt like it was a resounding positive experience and we give this front office really high grade so we'll kind of review just in case you've been hiding under a rock. What went down. We had seven guys that are to be new in the building. Pick seventeen lamb wide receiver from Oklahoma second round. Pick fifty one trayvon digs. Who's a corner from Alabama third pick eighty two Neville Gallimore as head? Cat Defensive? Tackle her new pet cat. From Oklahoma Fourth Round one twenty three Reggie Robinson and other corner from Tulsa and. Then we've got we treat it up for Tyler. Gosh darn it. I don't know how to these already. Oughta BE A senator from Wisconsin from Travis Frederick University Fifth Round once a benign Bradley a night edge from Utah and seventh last but not least been democracy. A great name court quarterback from James Madison. So guys I just love to kind of start off and get your reactions on on really how you felt like this draft went down for the cowboys in overall. Give them a great. Well I'm going to have to give them an A. M I want to give them an A. Plus just based off of like drafts pathogen. How I like. We all get a little frustrated with how they've handled things in the past and this one just felt like a breath of fresh air but honestly a I will give them an A. Plus Oh my. It's my favorite draft. They've had in the six years that I've been studying draft picks I think they nailed it. I think it was awesome. I think I don't want to say. The Corona virus is a positive in any way shape or form but I think the fact that they had a new coaching staff and they had limited access to the players means they had to just trust their scouts entrust will mcclay and they said these are the best players available and Jerry said cool. I'll pick them from a super yet so more on the super yacht later but I really do feel like he needs to be drafting from that yacht every single year if the results are going to be like this but I wanted to touch on what you just mentioned where best player available. That's been a narrative around the team for a while now and it's whether you drafter fit or whether you draft for best player bill when I think in the past we've seen this team draft were fit especially in terms of guys like Taco great example where they fit this scheme they were going to be a Marinelli guy and they went for him and obviously didn't Super Pan out for us and then a Guy. Like cd-rom comes along where A Name Chase was selling the board in technically to need for the cowboys. But the team went ahead and went with the guy who's an outstanding player a total rockstar and went with best player available strategy. I mean do you guys give that credit to McCarthy Building Corona virus you. You kind of mentioned a little bit that you think in is a result or residual of that. But where's your head at well? Okay so Stevens said that will McLeish's MVP. I completely agree with that. But I do think that McCarthy came out and said he was going to focus a lot on bringing in the right guys and not just fit. Something you'd build something around that so. I think that he talked the talk earlier and I think he walked the walk and I look forward to seeing him continue to do that. I think it's a lot easier for the head coach to not push for any individual players when he's a brand new head coach so I think everybody gets credit. I do think this is a draft for. This is kind of dangerous because we. I think everybody loves will mcclay because we picture Jerry Jones as the GM and everybody's like Oh no not Jerry so whoever else it could be. You're like yes that guy he's perfect and Jerry's terrible and we'll try to own some of the misses in recent graphs. But I don't I don't want him to own it because I think it was Rod Marinelli. No stop taking credit for TACO. Will I don't think it was? You stopped taking credit for Tristen Hill. I know that wasn't you so I think we'll McLean the scouts get the credit. But Mike McCarthy get some credit to because Jerry listened to his head coach even if he's brand new. Jerry listens to a lot of different people and so he had guys that he liked could have swayed some pets. Yeah I think he could but I hope that this is a sign that Mike. Mccarthy is true to what he was saying where he's like listen four three three four defense. Whatever this position that position. Whatever Gimme the best players and I'll make it work and then when the best player on the board was. Cd-rom who they. They had no clue he was going to be right. No clue they were stunned and tonight here in the room with everybody basically like hey guys we were hoping chase on would be there and he is. Our plan is kind of on track here. We're good and then somebody's got to go but CDs way up there and somebody goes right but that wasn't our plan and they're like well. Yeah but but he's here so shouldn't we take the best player and they did and they kept doing that. And I GIVE CREDIT TO WILMA. Mclean the scouts for getting them in the right order and for Jerry and Mike McCarthy and Stephen Not Deviating from hey this is the order. You guys have them in this order. We're going to pick them in. So I love that too because we heard after the first round of the press conference the ownership and Coach McCarthy gave. They said they were shocked. All of us I think I think they said they went through six mock drafts and neither of them any of them with CD ever available and so I think that was a really big shock for them but a good surprise. Obviously if you will I mean this guy's going to be a rockstar. I'm so excited to have him on. Team I think he brings that that third wide receiver slot back to life. That you know rent a cop obviously was great and he came in. He's a he's a vet. He's going to do his job. He knows what to do but Kobe Kobe. Really in my opinion owned that position for us for a while and I think he can jump in automatically. Fill that third role. But you have guys like Amari you have guys like Michael Doubt. They can also trade into that slot as well. And so I. The flexibility in the this wide receiver core has a diversity is going to be really really fun to play with. We've got some guests here till I'd like to apologize for my dogs. I have a new dog named CD because it was the best draft pick in history. And he's the cutest so he's the best draft pick in history and so his name is CD and I just like to apologize. And here's back to Meghan to answer. Whatever you said. Thank you so much as add to. There is a everyone was shocked. But I think if anyone was watching you live They saw how shocked. You're your reaction was fantastic. It was one of the best reactions I've seen from this. I think you are more excited than CD's like tell me about that. I didn't have words you can check. I think one. Oh five three. The Fan Dot Com. I'm pretty sure they posted it or check their twitter account. 'cause YEAH. I didn't have words. I was ready leading up to this draft for them to pick a guy that was a reach at a position of need and like the guy to thousands took it sixteen. I thought. Aj Terrell. I thought he was like a second or third round corner and people start talking about. Oh yeah you know if you're wiped out and the guys that you aren't there that might be the guy for the cowboys. I'm sitting here going. You gotta be kidding me. And then CDs there. And I'm like okay. Cds There and I can deal with Caleb on Chason pick and build up to it and telling everybody like you know what they're going to do. They're going to pick the do they were planning to pick. They're not gonNA. They're not gonNA take a gift that fell right in their lap. And so they do. They pick for need. And then they picked him exceeded lamb and I think just giggled. I kinda giggled and chuckled. And put my head on the table just laughed for a while and then eventually. I think I've found words and I think I just said team. Forty Burger lives. So yeah you can say I was happy you could say I was happy enough to name a dog after we have to know we asked day the other day Who originated. Who came up with the phrase? Was it you or dave or someone else. I think that it was at not to be trite on twitter. Buddy Mike White not that my quite the but another Mike White I think and I think I stole it immediately. And so yeah he tweets me all the time and he refers to us as the originators which I think means he came up with it and I stole it and Senate mainstream. If Dave's trying to claim it he might have come up with it. I don't think he's definitely trying to claim it. What did he say maybe he did? I don't know he he was like it was either Mir Jaffa can't remember. Yeah well he was. Kinda trying to share the credit if you will all right so day one starter you think jeff yes CD Yeah Day one starter yet and I think Year two. He's going to be the cowboys best. Receiver which is saying a lot because Amari Cooper is awesome. He's like a top ten ish receiver in the League. And I think we'll be the cowboys best receiver twelve months from now. I think right now. He's starring as the third receiver seedy..
The Supreme Court case that could transform abortion
"Just this week on the first major abortion case of the trump error the justices are considering a Louisiana law right now requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital the case could reveal how willing the more conservative court is to roll back abortion rights a decision is expected by late June according this morning to Supreme Court reporter for The Washington Post Robert Barnes this case comes from Louisiana which is a state that passes a lot of abortion restrictions more than any other state in the country it's almost identical to a case that this court struck down in twenty sixteen but the court had a different membership then in that case justice Anthony Kennedy joining the liberals to strike that wall down of course Kennedy is now retired he's been joined by two of president trump's nominees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh how does the questioning by the justices go to this particular case rubble justices made clear that their minds have not been changed by anything that this kind of law is unconstitutional so the two people who seem most now I wouldn't say inclined to join them but the two possibilities to join them would be Chief Justice Roberts and maybe just says Kavanagh both of them ask questions about the twenty sixteen president which indicated that they felt that that the president was still in force and that they had to abide with it but they wondered should you look at this state by state so if this admitting privileges requirement was a problem in Texas does that also mean that had to be considered a problem in Louisiana or do you go state by state as you might imagine the lawyers had different opinions on that and Chief Justice Roberts nor justice Cavanaugh gave their own opinions on what they thought the right answer was yes the justices uphold the Louisiana law what might that mean for other abortion cases down the road well I think it would be a real signal that the court is re re examining its abortion jurisprudence as I say this case was just decided four years ago for the court to come back now and do something different I think would show that the court was very open to restrictions passed by the state's on abortion and that they would receive a much friendlier reception at the

Alfonso Ribeiro twists our brains on golf
"All right folks are joined by a very special guest. Alfonso Ribeiro Big Time Golf Guy so you just walked into Barcelo. Hq I Kind of impressions walking into Barstool checking on her office. All new. I mean the last time to Barstool it was like a it was literally did not look like this. How about we go there? We just going to be pleasant. It was It was an office been was like just not really new new. Feels like a little bit of a facade like this nice and like state of the art and it's not really us just put snow it it did you listen. Everybody needs to go to work and feel like they're going to a nice place. Okay you know what I mean you can talk about whatever you want. It's gotta you'll nice going to work today. What he's saying is the last place was a dump and couldn't believe that he was brought there and that that he likes plays a lot more? I'M GONNA go with the last part of that. Okay because speaking to work got a couple of things going on a couple of things on funniest video absolutely how you know so like the greatest Family show in American television history. Right like its thirtieth season iconic for the Shell my fifth season as the host. And like what's better than watching people do really dumb stuff stuff hurt themselves but what Asta laugh at them by sending us the video so you get the approval of them to laugh at them and and we get to laugh over and over and over again. And I get to go to work and I actually one of the things that I'll do is so I typically have to do the voice overs for all the videos at that net. Need my voice over. Okay okay but I won't watch any of the ones that I don't have to do voice over on so that when I'm actually at the taping and I enjoy them for the first time you're right at the tapings aping and I'm like this way. It's like it feels less like work right. You go to go and it was like wow didn't see that one and can laugh and have a great time so I actually enjoy the taping and as much as the audience gets to do you ever slip up like Oh shit. It's just a good at that because kids so I've learned how not to allow that slip to come out. I always say I know my audience and when I'm when I'm there I'm pretty good at making sure that because we have some kids in the audience. I've become America's Dad. There have to be very responsible. It's amazing my gallstone hasn't made it onto that show yet. It just put it out with. Just keep sending US videos. We'll get it on you get one with a wedge in its everyone's laugh back actually on on Sunday eh the. At and T. I actually wanted to see whether someone got one of my swings on video. 'cause it absolutely would make it onto my show where where it was on. The fourteenth holds a par-five long par five and I'm trying to like possibly see whether I can get there in two so I'm really really digging into one and my right foot completely slips out onto downswing I'm talking airborne it's completely gone right and I still hit the ball but I was on one leg almost down on the ground and I actually hit the ball. So the two the pros and the group because my pro was Kevin Na right and the other the pro is j b Holmes and both of them were like in they were shell shocked because they were like okay. Are you all right. And I'm like and I'm walking gingerly because I'm like I don't know if I'm alright yet Then they go. How did you make contact right like? How did you literally literally you were falling down and you still hit the ball on an ethnic? I like that things eh but it really was. I said to everybody the gallery. WHO's watching anybody? Get that on tape tape. So you're good player. You're scratch. Is that right well. They had me as a three okay. So so you've played golf in some in some big circles right so you're Alphonso Ribeiro your but at the at and T. Pablo pro-am pro-am it's it's TV it's legitimate PJ toward crowds. What's kind of your nerve level on the first tee? You're on the seventeen. Maybe more conic shot. What's your nerve you know? There's probably only one shot at Pebble Beach that I am fearful of It's the second shot on eight right light. That is the only shot where you're like. Okay I don't have this. This is GonNa talk to me about it and we follow him about it and play the whole Goddamn golf course. You know it's a train wreck where we can't bring one hundred none of us for playing in a couple of weeks for the US Open. He's trying little fairy on a in Richmond right flying on a on the fly right behind the flag as for Mr Berry missed. The net. Green is great work. It was great because and I was on my way to triple digits so of course I'm walk through seven holes. Okay you knew where this round was. Nobody's lying along the best part of that is your only through seven holes right this aide whole and you haven't even gotten to the teeth of the golf course you know. That's the easy part of the grass. You get one two three four or five. You're like Ooh and you're doing like if I par in I can shoot ninety uh-huh and you're not going to say the only confident walk. I had all day was walking up to the Green on eight. I had my shoulders up is in my head was held high and I felt good but the rest of the day absolutely you know we had a twenty five mile. An hour rose wind no going from left to right right into the water. Yeah not good. So it's one of those shots where you're like. Okay where am I aiming. That's far let's into I can play it from the left rough. Can't play that from the Pacific. No right you know I was I was left. What's what's the dichotomy like with if the pros and you've got you know the guys played different? teases it awkward at all. No it's it's I'll say this like they're I'm sure there are groups and I've heard many stories the of playing in groups where because it's too amateurs into prose where guys really are not enjoying playing with those amateurs and there are guys on tour who alike I am not playing the. At and T.. I can't stand it like it's just playing with the amateurs but like this group that we had this year which was my self with with Kevin A- and then it was Michael Pena with a guy named Martin trainer. Right and Michael the opinion I are pretty much the same for even though he was getting seven shots. I was getting three but we when we play at home. We are about the same so when you play with guys. We're actually indecent golfers right. Then it's not bad because he's not like all right. Let's go look for his ball. Not that right. The flow of the game feels like it's just a normal for some going out to play and it's not so bad for them. Because I even sent cavanaugh a text message yesterday kind Hannah saying you know a dude. Thanks for an amazing week. We made the cut. We finished nineteenth right like out of one hundred and fifty six teams. That was awesome. He was in there grinding. Like trying to get the team to to to make the cut and you know it was just a really really enjoyable week and he was like dude. Thank you for being the way you were because you knew when to talk and make it light but you also knew when to leave me alone right. Let me have of my space when I needed it and I'm good at that like I'm the dude in the group who's like we're not talking to him some people don't that'll that I'm not going to be the one to tip it. Everyone feels they look at Jon Rahm by the way sitting at dinner. Just don't go near him. L. People for one degrees. That's his nickname like but you know but that's what I was doing you know. That's but that's what happens when it's guys who know how to play golf right who play golf and been in that circumstance stands. This is my fifth year the. At and T.. I've been up at the American Century Tournament now for maybe fourteen fifteen years I get it like I get how to play golf in front of people. It doesn't affect me right like you asking the question earlier like does it like. Does it affect you. Like going to that I T- I have no nerves. Did it affect you. I the first time I absolutely. Yeah but now it's like maybe maybe after like the fourth or fifth time playing in one of those like bigger tournaments after that I was like I. Nobody cares correct right like we all have this thing in our minds that like. I'm going to go embarrass myself. I'm like no not you know why because I'm so much better than the audience sitting there watching me play golf that they're impressed even if I hit a bad. That shot hit that bad shot right so I'd look at it like oh well they don't care whether I play well or not. I care whether I play well or not. Well well I know that if I'm in the moment and I'm actually all messed up about it but I'm not gonNA play. Well right I gotta get into the same space where I've had some of my best rounds and all of my best rounds of been when I'm like. Yeah whatever you gotTa Find Your Happy Place Right just like you're not caring right. The moment you care is the moment you get tents the moment your tents is the worst Gulf swing right. So I've certainly got myself to where I can just kind of be in the moment I want you know. Pick a target small targets right. No no no. Don't hit over there to the right. No pick a target hit the target. Don't worry about anything else. You're not gonna hit it there anyway. But at least you're gonNA you're GonNa make a good solid swing with the right effort by familiar with the exact opposite approach of that on the TV. You got a couple of groups backed doc. You know and you're standing in for wherever you think that they care a lot about how your shot goes right. You're standing the biggest fair way in the world and you're just like all right there's OB forty yards left. You can't it'll be and meanwhile correct just pick a small targets a giant fairway even a decent drive. You'll have a good approach. NOPE bodies a train wreck. You don't know how does golf club you're thinking. Oh Oh my God I saw. Nobody cares their phone there and watch it right. Well I I became friendly with Justin rose and he has a putting guru right who works with okay and this. This guy gave our whole little group when when we were all together Some information is called C.. Burn right and I was like okay. Okay well it's a putting thing where if you put a ball on the ground and if you move that ball quickly you're going to see what looks like a burn of a ball on the grass right and I was like what is that like why he goes. Your brain doesn't understand no or don't write. It only understands what it saying doing. So don't hit it left. Your brain heard hit it left right so there's no don't yeah it doesn't it doesn't recognize. Don't right it only recognizes do. Yeah so people say. Don't move your head you're moving your head right. What this guy is saying is his see the burn? If you see the burn you didn't move your head. It has to be an active positive. Thought not a negative thought because there's is no way that your brain understands the negative thought. Why do you always hit it in the water when you look at water if you have to hit the ball over the water like all right? Don't hit it into water. You're the water. Your brain doesn't understand. Don't you have to just don't even worry about the water. See the target and hated at your target. So it's a mental exercise absolutely but it but it becomes a physical thing because see the burn. You didn't move your. I can't tell you over
Interview with Taylor Stevenson
"We're really happy to have all the way from Texas Taylor Stevenson joining us. Who actually flies with the with the Torah Act? So thank you for coming up in being with us today. Yeah absolutely the scared look is also what I have in the cockpit as well same holds true for all for all of US above average pilots. which is everybody coming in to landing? Cleef so Taylor before we sort of dive into what you do these days With Torah and all that all that cool stuff I I always love to go back to go back to the beginning and and find out how what was it about aviation how did you. How did you get involved? Do you remember the first thing you loved aviation where your model. I don't actually remember the first thing about aviation because it's just always been in the family So I was blessed to have grown up with my Dad Gordon Stevenson who I guess when I was born he used to scuba dive and ski and all that stuff and he's like yeah. I can't really do that with a little kid. What can I do? And so He'd always wanted to fly. My grandfather father was a flight engineer on B. Twenty four's in the Pacific with a three eightieth bomb group and so he had always grown up with my grandfather and my great uncle was a tail. Gunner and B twenty. Five's is always telling stories of aviation and so. He always wanted to do that. Well I guess I kind of kickstarted it So he was in nineteen thousand nine he was at the Addison. Texas airshow. You and there were two pieces For Sale so dad went up and you know what looks cooler not six sitting out there and it was kind of a fresh paint job Boban and he walks up and Calls one of his good friends at the time is basically my uncle Ray Kinney who had his pilot's license and said Hey ray let's by six and Ray is kind of what I was saying. Okay whatever whatever you call me when you need the money you know didn't never thought it was happened. We'll dad I bought the t six call ray up in two weeks later. Dad's signed up for flying lessons. So he kind of jumped headfirst into the thing Getting a pilot maker so So I did grow up just grew up in the backseat of T. Six six years old. I remember Freedom Flight Ninety five where we took one hundred and twenty aircraft from Long Beach California new to New York City I think we did six or seven and airshows along the way and so there's no greater childhood and ask for greater childhood than get into go and and and an experienced that and the neat thing is I'm excited to share it with my kids but it's it's got a a bittersweet day because I'm going to be one of the last generation that actually got to interact with the people that flew these in combat that built them Back in Korea World War Two and before so I'm I'm really blessed to have been able to grow up with aviation that's excellent so tell us a little bit about what your flight training. When did you start learning to fly? You've been around you. He's six which is fantastic. I'd like to fly by a t six. I broke it down both Cadillac that but really dad always joked that I was I could fly. IOF are when I was probably eight years old because I couldn't see over the canopy rail and he'd say oh I need to change maps. Hold the instrument. I'd sit there and look at you know artificial horizon and just kind of keep it going. We've got that exact same joke in my family. That was really. Yeah so so ray. Kenny also had a nineteen forty-six Piper j three cub with a sixty five horse engine in no electrical. Oh system about as good as it gets. And so when I was fifteen. He started doing kind of the formal Flight Training with me and a good family friend. Aubrey hair. Who flew flew? Basically everything that a stable for Cavanaugh flight museum and Blue Ticks and stuff. I was Aubrey's last student. We like to. He's he he kind of wears. He says he wears a badge of honor. I think I scared him so bad. He didn't want to know but now it was When I was fifteen Fly Piper cub out of our country. North Dallas and on my sixteenth birthday Solo. The cub then drove from the airport after getting student licensed to the DMV. To get my driver. So I always like to say I I could legally fly before I could drive So the cub was awesome to build. Time in there's nothing neater than going cross country driest eighteen wheelers or passing. ESPN everywhere you stop to fill up hand proper chocolate and and go so But after that we I'd always knew just grown up. WanNa get into warbirds and you can't just go you could but you know there's GonNa be a logical step between a cub and the t six and then beyond and so. I've always loved the Stinson. L Five and to me the l four was gonna you know there's some grasshopper aficionados. I was out there prior to say but the L. A. Piper cub with more glassy was is an existing design that was translated into military service. Same thing with the L.. Three same thing with the L.. To the twelve or or champ and the L. One and the l five were designed from from the ground up as a military machine. It was a ward Set up sixty five horse. We've got a hundred and ninety horsepower. Got flapping flaps drooping ailerons. It was cool so I remember being twelve years old and Eleven or twelve in. Sam Taber who's always up here at Oshkosh with his L.. Five walked right up to him about the best guy I on the planet walked. Start talking and sometimes you get some people aviation that When somebody young walks up up to him you know they don't necessarily discount him but it's kind of like okay? He's asking some questions. I would just boom in. Sam is one of those great individuals that He latched on told told me all the information ever wanted to know about the l five and just encourage he and Jim Gray Dunkin Cameron some of these others. That were in that group just really took me under their wing and so eventually found found project and began restoration. That was my my first foray into warbirds myself. All that's very cool. Yeah Sam's a good friend to a bunch bunch of the well to to the organization General He's our boss Jim. Bush publications is one of his best buddies. And Jim has an l five live. Oh that's very cool and Taylor you. I mean you're L five. Restoration is is gorgeous. I mean thank you. That was one of the first ones I know says that all the gas. Yes I do But no seriously you're aircraft is impressive. Yeah I appreciate it. It was we're lucky enough to find a really solid project from Duncan Cameron out. He was in Tennessee at that point. And so I went out there and And took a look at it and you know dad and and I we. I grew up working on cars and airplanes. A little bit with dad and Really we had been looking for an L. Five That was kind of plug and play a but it's kind of like anything for a parent. I don't have kids but I'm sure one day I'll realize it was like none of them. Were kind of up to his standards. One of the most safe. You know you WANNA make sure it was gone through and all that stuff and we finally determined and we started out with saying. We're not GONNA have project. Well that seemed to be the the only way we were going to get a product that we that we really liked at at that market at that point So I went over. I heard about this Guy Just kind of in between Dallas Fort Worth Name Lonnie Parcel Funny Awesome Guy One of my best friends so I flew the cup over there and he is restored shoot. Probably fifteen l five's over the year And started talking with him. And we ended up I said hey you know if I get this you know the two of us going to start working on it and You know basically be my mentor and in and and teach me how to do this and and so when I got the five and from that point I think it was about sixteen months. We had flying airplane so is it was It was pretty much. My twos two summers during high school. So seventeen eighteen nineteen and those two summers. That was my job. Drove drove forty minutes each way drive out to propwash. Were Little Airport flying community and worked with him and it was the most amazing and it was the best experience. It's because you know whether it's a l. five or cub or TC want or pilots. Or whatever the principles you learn rebuilding a cub They get more complicated. But you know carburetors carburetor internal combustion engine to all internal combustion engine so it was a great learning experience experience in being able to I guess quickly trouble. Shoot whatever something was going on because you've seen it you put it together so it was just an amazing experience. Yeah we come up in his Oshkosh two thousand nine and We're honored to receive the best Elbert so it was great
Is the Women's March Only For on White Women?
"We got some interesting things to talk about Zaire Bill. Our friend was invited onto the board of the women's March. She was so happy. Ah I was so happy so happy and then forty eight hours later they kicked off. This is not Zara measor. This is our friends are Balu. Executive Director of the Council of American Islamic Relations in San Francisco's chapter and forty eight hours later woman's March W T.F. You're were instagram and what were your feelings that the woman's March is apparently not for me yeah. The woman's March is saying that we can't advocate for the lives of Palestinians anymore. That's why she was kicked off. I mean like the women's March always has these ridiculous right wing trolls around them that are manipulating all the women that are involved with this but basically what they were doing was they dug into his Arab News Archive of tweets from many many years and Zari Stu tweet extensively and they pulled up all of her Palestinian tweets and they use that as a reason to kick her off the board just so terrible I think like we're just like a we're. We're in this age of culture where people are digging up all these things from past in like you're being held responsible for something that you said a long time ago but it also be like everything's are said is facts you just there was nothing she said that was wrong but because we're in this day and age where it's all about like colliding people's tweets on fire in calling out people. There's no room for reasonable discourse. I mean this goes beyond reasonable discourse of course to me. This is telling me what discourse is period yeah because you're telling me that I can now no longer talk about apartheid existing in Israel which does yeah there are apartheid supporters yeah. You're telling me that I can't talk about that by. Wouldn't you want that kind of diverse perspective on on aboard anyway. That's the whole point of the women's. March is bring together so many radical voices and then have a dialogue and you just kicked a person off the board who is so ready and capable to do that. It's the white women's March. You know that's basically we all know. That's what the subtext is yeah yeah but you know what. I'M NOT GONNA. Give white people that I don't know something about that feels like you don't get to have that. You don't get to like well. I liked about what direction Raja was saying was was that she on her twitter account. You know how they were using the American flag hit job woman as the poster at the women's March okay so you know how on the poster it it said we the people and this is our greater than fear and then one of directions followers edited the bottom and it said submit to fear which is so oh well done well done okay. Here's my beef. There are a lot of women who are white woman who I like an are my friends. I would preferred a label it as the Nancy Pelosi March. It's not the woman's march anymore. It's the Nancy Pelosi March because to me Nancy Pelosi stands as that older generation and that old way of thinking period regardless of what generation you're from that is like moderate conservative trying trying to be Democrat saying things like I'm not GonNa try to impeach Brett Cavanaugh like to me. That's the same person I don't know I think for me. The women's March just seeing everything the taxing hell into starts tour had to leave the women's march on July fifteenth along with two of her supporters Bob Bland and to make a Maori like just the Lynch mob rightly. There's like Internet mob mentality to attack them on the Internet. Get them kicked out of the women's March now they're trying to lake reframe themselves and finally other people to replace them with in Zaire. Bill would have been like amazing perfect there and then they they don't want her because her whatever so it's just like. Zion is being kicked out of the women's. March is like a reason for me to see this movement and say like this isn't for me. This is not a space for me. This isn't a space for Muslim women. Stop fucking using our Muslim women images in your protests. If so clear that you don't want us for our values are if feels like that's what they want. They just want to like a vision of us. They want the symbol of his job and to protect US and save us but they don't actually want us to actually have a voice. I think they want our voice along as it sounds like a moderate conservative would've voice that doesn't support black lives matter that doesn't work against the moderate conservative movement. That's trying to normalize what trump's doing yeah because here's the quote that's making me feel that way. The same article wrote unfortunately Belu's racist tweets do not stand alone. They seem to reflect the views of of most prominent Muslims in America on the left. What the fuck does that mean that human rights violations by Israel against Palestinians Finian's is not okay. That's a left idea. That's a left idea yeah. Apparently that was a stupid article. I mean when you say that like apparently it's not for us. It sounds like that's exactly what they're fine with saying. I don't think that the women's March can really recover from this which is unfortunate because I think like I think about this a lot. In movements we do do so much work to like move people. They really feel like at some point like the women's march was a movement right like everyone showed up on the capital not because of an organization but because they wanted women to be there I think about this about black lives matter and I think about this about the civil rights movement. There's always like you know Oh. Maybe an informant that's like making this shit like fall apart and there's always like government and FBI NCAA and like. I don't want to be conspiracy theorist but there are like it's not a conspiracy when it's like real movements are always being brought down because they don't WanNa see us rise up in. I feel like that's kind of what's happening here and like ah I think we have to deal with that in a real way. Yeah you know because that is of course going to be there tactic. Why wouldn't it? I feel like that's where we are in the women's. March like this is like it's so so clear this organization has fallen victim to this tactic and like I hope that feeling that people had on election day or inauguration day of showing up. I hope people don't like field. He'll dismissed by that feeling that power of being at the protest these are the splits that they're going to continue to try to create is like the question of like split loyalties and you know. Who Do you stand with you know. Are you one of us all the way until they've moved toward fascism yeah dictatorship. This is their job up. This is what they're trying to do. I think we have to be really blunt about that and know that and work really consciously up against it yeah also are we infiltrating in their meetings and like being like saying as they in these this conversation like when you say they the unified dark money right are we going to. They're like men's activist meetings men's rights activists meetings and like being like yeah men's rights and also I wanNA listen to women's sometimes. I don't feel feel like that's my role in this movement but I'm hoping that you know I'm for hire to infiltrate. I don't know if you'll be able to pass us in these spaces. I'll just go with my white husband. Oh yeah well. I mean like literally like you send your husband and your good. No I want to be there. I just don't I don't know you think you won't work.

"Yours truly here Eric Cavanaugh I'm very excited for today's show we have three excellent guests lined up for you today the topic is semantics to be specific here about one talk about a lot of different angles and the data world today the exact title is a second chance for analytics semantic search is key so what is semantic search and of course I think we all understand what analytics is in general we understand the process of analyzing data to ascertain patterns who's buying what and when what's happening on my network where is the stock market going all these kinds of things we can try to better understand using analytics well semantics is it something that's been around for quite a long time now semantic technology the semantic web we were talking about fifteen years ago semantics it interesting it's kind of hot and cold over the many years that it's been out there and it's getting hard again and one main reason why it's getting hot I think it's because of all the unstructured data that we have out there so when we talk about structured data versus unstructured typically they were first to relational data likened the warehouse like Terry data for example or idea of course is a data warehouse of the companies have to browse technologies oracle is an autonomous data warehouse they talk about now which is kind of interesting but that's structured data and unstructured data is not really unstructured it's just burying in its structures so word documents for example emails all that tax without their social media data is considered unstructured and if you want to understand that stuff you really need some kind of semantic lands and so you were start to see things like word clouds that are kind of fun I use the technology hash tracking dot com when I go to events in a track the hash tag of the events and it gives you a nice word cloud to show you which words are more popular than others it's really good technology for understand in customer service issues at scale one of the terms that are popping up in all the emails that were getting one of the terms that are popping up in the social media Twitter coming in well this is all stuff that could be better understand using semantics and so that's gonna be the topic for today but the data fabric which is again not a new term it's been around for a while but I believe the time has come for it that concept to really achieve maturity and what we're talking about is not just data in a database so data fabric as well learn today can be supported by a number of different kinds of technologies including craft technology to an autograph database looks like well look what Facebook does and linked in a particular in terms of recommending people you should connect with will typically those types of suggestions are coming from some sort of graph technology a graph database is not like a traditional relational database for the the standard tables that you would see in a data warehouse were standard excel spreadsheet for example instead of graphical design nodes and edges and this is actually very interesting stuff so the edges kind of connect the nodes and they could be anything at all facets things to be polite colors of clothing that someone like those could be all facets notes could be people notes could be object the could be concept that could be any number of things but you use a graph to kind of understand the relationships between things so think about just as a as a quick example here in law enforcement if you want to understand who the bad guys are and who the king pins are they can actually trace phone records to see who's calling whom and when and using a graph database you can actually build a profile fairly quickly and easily to understand who the center of gravity is in a particular ecosystem so it seems like this one node gets a lot of attention from all these other nodes they don't talk to each other as much but they're all talk of this one of the center well that's an influencer at the middle so it's also good for things like influencer marketing so this is a bit of a long winded introduction but I want to throw out these concepts of people understand we're talking about different kinds of technology today semantics is one of them I think we all know what semantics is the meanings of words ontologies kind of playing into that ontologies are sort of hierarchies of meaning they're very useful in certain industries are also gained useful and kind of understand complex sets of unstructured data and this whole data fabric concept as well so with that let's bring in a long time gas of the am radio from years ago he was on our show back before we went to Informatica and I'm trying to remember Robbie and I'm forgetting the name of the company the MTM company used to work for long ago now question with an elbow but Robbie shaker with Toyota back that's the one yes the first ever sponsored DM radio way back in two thousand eight so yeah Ravi Shankar wanted back to this yeah talking about his own to be with you yeah it tells about what you're doing in the space of semantics and data fabric great so it is not as you know I am now but do no no I am the chief marketing officer of the vice president for a company be innovative the company for four and a half years and that what we do is data which location and data which location is an approach to talk about the fate of fabric it right and you talked about the fifth technologies like craft and a lot of other things only thank you mentioned you can put together to create the data operate there are there are two approaches to add one that is the typical approach which you can use like crap and other types of data bases you can also think about a lot of people think about data only another another technology that you can actually use to put together.

"The polling Cavanaugh was the turning point the next turning point was the president coming on behalf of Marcia. And you saw that gap begin and widen and hold on. It is big you have to acknowledge it at least real clear politics. Bolted back to a toss up race. You can be with you could have a six point lien be considered a tossup. And then get a two point surprise or a margin of error. Surprising. You still win by eight to ten. I don't know that the polling has been that right on look you can look at the polling and say, you know, what polling suggests polling suggests that if the Democrats don't get the house and the Senate they've got their attacks on cavenaugh to blame. And they'd better learn from that because if they do get the house by a couple of seats, and they behave the way I know they're going to behave. They're gonna give it right back to the Republicans in a landslide to Trump. So they still haven't learned their lessons. But I think the poll suggests that they win the house by a couple of seats. But the polls are wrong two years ago, and it's a midterm election. It's all about turn out, and you can pull all you want. But if somebody forgets to go vote or doesn't bother to go vote.

It's a stark contrast from the way other Republican presidents have highlighted the economy in the past. It's morning again in America. Today. More men and women will go to work and ever before north country's history. That's just as true today as it was when Ronald Reagan was campaigning more than thirty years ago. But while Trump does boast about the booming economy. He's just as likely to talk about job growth as a magnet for illegal immigration. This is perilous situation into threatens to become even more hazardous as our economy gets better. And better that use the difference between Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump and their entire political approach GOP, pollster air says Trump's midnight in America message seems ground in the idea that fear and resentment are more potent tools for mobilizing voters than sunny optimistic claims about expanding jobs and paychecks that may be true in deep.

"A classmate at Yale of Brett cavenaugh. His name is leading ten is recounting a bar fight. The Cavanaugh was involved in which Cavanaugh wait for it through some ice at somebody. I there's a report out there that Brett Cavanaugh is named in a police report about an incident that stemmed from raking and being angry out one night. You know, anything about sport. Yes, I do. In fact, a new agreed deal about this report. Tell me well it all began that evening began. In fact, I know the date now I've found it in the Hartford current. Program guide for a September nineteen eighty five and Chris Dudley, and Greg Kavanagh, and I would to a UB forty concert. They were a popular reggae band of the nineteen eighties in any event. Something called the palace theater and Wednesday night. So it was sort of an odd night to be going out. But the concert was a good one. So after the concert, we went to a bar called Demery's and. We were drinking. And I assume beer, but. And some point where he looked over to this fellow who looked very similar to the lead singer of you before you got an alley Campbell. And we kinda give them the. I mean, this guy we're kind of back is that really him because he'd be here and. Can we move this along? What do you think use ourselves and? Say great show. And maybe you share beer them, whatever. And. Well, he saw us looking at him and didn't like. The fact that we were looking at them. So he said something like what the hell are you looking at? And I said, I wouldn't like anybody named Chad looking at me, but we just thought you were the lead singer of UB forty. He said something very aggressive. Frankly, I'm not and. Screw off or something to that. Degree and at that point. Are you counting the arms and this year? We are you counting. If I had a nickel for every Brett took umbrage at this. And through whose beer the guy. I actually now found out from the report that it wasn't beer that I had misremembered. It was. Ice cubes, he misremembered. And I said it was beer the they remembered it was not beer it was ice cube. In whatever the drink was that he was drinking. We weren't water. So it must have been some sort of mixed drink. And well, the fellow said it was beer. Brett said. For something to that effect and through the through the ice at the guy and the guy understandably even though he had been aggressive and his response found that was a little one step too far. So he took a swing at Brett. And then they were kind of guys fighting those Aubrey quick. And then I'm at that point Chris Dudley who had his drink in his hand proceeded to smash it up against the guy's head. Well, the melee went on very briefly. I don't know what Brett was doing. Exactly what I was. Polling. In the guy cell phone goes off. Can you believe this? I was pulling up. A yearly when you have an interview you turn down the cell phone, Chris back and someone else was pulling the other guy back and next thing. You know? There's some shouting. Every end. I don't know.

I'll oppose everything I've got is that not long after that another democrat on the judiciary committee proclaimed that anyone supporting judge Kavanagh's confirmation was quote, listen to this complicit in the evil complicit and. Much are the contracts for every action. The Democrats have taken during this entire process. Remind us Democrats may be trying to move the goalposts every five minutes. But their goal has not moved. They will not be satisfied unless they have brought down. Judge Kavanagh's nomination. Cut six go next. Democrats have the process should be delayed. Because too few documents were available from judge Kavanagh's past public service. Well, then they received the votes pages of documents ever produced for supreme court. So guess what came next? Goalpost moved down the field and the Democrats call for delayed because there were too many documents. For them to read. I wish this could have remained in the realm of normalcy. But we're none of these tactics work when judge Cavanaugh demonstrated his widely acknowledged, brilliant, open-mindedness and collegiality is confirmation hearings Shaam shows a darker road. The politics of personal destruction were willfully unleashed..

They don't come up with any conclusions themselves that is standard protocol. Some Democrats are concerned about this.

"Written by judge Cavanaugh to the Senate Judiciary committee, particularly the honorable Charles Grassley, the committee, chairman the honorable Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member, and what it indicates is that we have in Cavanaugh a fighter just light Trump. Oh, by the way. Apparently, I heard, ladies and gentlemen, I I assume that Amy Cavanaugh was Kavanagh's wife, the recipient of those despicable disgusting. Insulting emails actually, Amy cabinet must be one of his daughters, which makes it actually even worse. Wife's name is. Ashley. When I make a mistake. So infrequent that when I make a mistake. People just jump all over it a jump in there. They start pointing fingers a tell everybody. Most people are allowed to learn from their mistakes. Not I don't know. But I make them it's a serious serious breach. And I wouldn't even call that a mistake. I mean that was just. An incorrect assumption. The substance. However was not changed by whoever was sent those emails. I in this letter that Cavanaugh has written in the White House released this. So this is not cavenaugh into the White House. Standing by Cavanaugh Trump is standing by cabin in. This letter to Grassley and Feinstein Cavanaugh says I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process the coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out the last minute character. Assassinations will not drive me out deer chairman Grassley and ranking member finds nine when I testified in front of the Senate three weeks ago. I explained my belief that fair process is foundational to Justice and to our democracy. At that time. I sat before the committee for more than thirty one hours and answered questions under oath. I then answered more questions at a confidential session the following week. I responded to more than twelve hundred written questions more than have been submitted to all previous supreme court nominees combined. Twelve hundred one thousand two hundred letters questions that's more questions submitted in writing than all previous nominees have received combined. Only after that exhaustive process was complete denied learn through the news media. About a thirty six year old allegation from high school that had been asserted months earlier and withheld from me throughout the hearing process. I it was an anonymous allegation categorically and unequivocally denied soon after the accuser was identified. I repeated my denial on the record it made clear that I wished to appear before your committee. I then repeated my denial to committee investigators under criminal penalties for false statements. All of the witnesses identified by Dr Ford as being present at the party. She describes are on the record to the committee saying they have no recollection of any such party happening, by the way, that's true. The committee as investigators have been talking to these people while all this has been going on and all four of the people that Dr Ford names have denied being there. I asked to testify before the committee again under oath as soon as possible. So that both Dr Ford, and I could both be heard. I thank chairman Grassley for sheds ruling that hearing for Thursday. Last night another false and uncorroborated accusation from thirty five years ago was published once again those alleged to have been witnesses to the event deny it ever happened. There is now a frenzy to come up with something anything that will block this process and block a vote on my confirmation from occurring. These are smears, pure and simple. They debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination of allowed to succeed will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasion from service. That's right. And that's exactly what the left wants. Make no mistake. The left would be happy. If all decent people punted. And said I want nothing to do with government. Nothing would make them happier. Judge Cavanaugh is exactly right about that. He continues as I told the committee during my hearing. A federal judge must be independent not swayed by public or political pressure. That's the kind of judge. I will always be I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. They coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out the last minute character. Assassinations will not succeed I have devoted my career. Just serving the public and the cause of Justice and particularly to promoting the equality and dignity of women women from every phase of my life come forward to attest to my character. And I'm grateful to them. I owe it to them and my family to defend my integrity and my name. I look forward to answering questions from the Senate on Thursday. Sincerely, Brett Cavanaugh. Well, he may be there, but he'll be the only witness. Meaning I don't think Dr Ford will show up and particularly now, she's she got more reason not show up Cavanaugh simply refuses to go away. Cavenaugh simply will not admit it. Therefore, I can't I can't I can't I don't feel safe with him in. No, I can't I won't. Especially in the cabin August last. How about her stipulate conditions not under oath? Cavenaugh goes first cavenaugh can't be in the room. When I am. Yeah. It was a demand. If they agreed to that. Well, they didn't. They haven't. They didn't. But that's what I meant the first hour. They are standing. I don't know any America. The United States of America is a an exceptional different and unique country for a host of reasons. And at the top of the list of those reasons is our system of Justice the rule of law. The rule of law is what equalizers everybody in the eyes of Justice, which are blind by definition. And it is fundamental in our system that anybody accused is presumed innocent and the people doing the accusing half to prove it. Inten horn dictatorships in communist countries into -tarian regimes. It is true. That the accused is automatically guilty. This is what the left seeks. Particularly in politicized events, and since they've politicized everything. This is what they seek once accused a conservative is guilty, and we'll be denied. If they can do it a chance to prove innocence. But regardless the accused. Is guilty. The accuser need not provide evidence the accuser need, not provide corroboration the word of the accuser is all that is needed particularly in politicized events involving men and women that stands America on its head. If that ever became our rule of law that would be the end of the rule of law be the end of America as you, and I know that a criminal Justice system. It would be the end of any effort to exonerate oneself against any charge false legitimate. What have you the burden has always been on the accuser the prosecutor to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt? What the left is angling for is outside of court. The establishment that in politicized events. The accuser is always right because they are always going to be the accusers. It is part of their politics to accuse their opponents of crimes. Including. Thinking differently. Is a crime being conservative has become a crime on the left a prosecutable punishable offense. Witness a for this is Brett Cavanaugh prior to him. It was judge Bork. Ben came Clarence Thomas. So the American Justice system. Is in the process of being stood upside down, and it's been taking place in our educational system. I don't know how many generations at least one little generation is twenty to twenty five years. So maybe maybe as many as two generations of young people have been taught today. That the American system of Justice is destroying conservatives. Conservatives equal old white men who just need to shut up finally and go away and let everybody clean up the mess that they have made of the world. So the American system of Justice as taught to young skulls full of mush is destroying conservatives. However, and whenever that is what young people have been taught Justice is. And that's why such treatment of Cavanaugh is applauded. It's considered to be Justice because is guilty. He's a conservative. And that means he did whatever the left thinks of all concerned. He did it because he's concerned conservatives abuse women conservatives oppose women and minorities. Conservatives want you to suffer concert this. And that this is what people have been taught. I want to ask some of you question. I know you'll never be able to answer it. But I just want you to see the answer for yourselves in your lives. I got a note recently from a new grandmother. A woman's daughter has just given birth to a well twins. And the woman's daughter has several friends in the woman told me that her daughter in friends, not her daughter, daughters twins were for girls. She told me that young millennial new mothers. Feel very bad that their children are boys. In the age of Weinstein. And all of these sexual abusers. Stop and think about that. I they are. Are disappointed. That their child is a boy. Now, these are women who had the baby. So I know what you're thinking. Well, maybe they might start aborting. Yeah. Nothing would surprise me on that side of the score. But just the fact that because of media coverage of Weinstein, representing all men. See this is what the left does winds. The even though he's a liberal Democrat. Even though he's a clintonistas Weinstein has come to represent all men did a Leslie Moonves at CBS. They're all Liberal Democrats. Bill Clinton liberal Democrat. These are all guys who did it Bill. Cosby liberal Democrat. They're all Liberal Democrats. The guys who did it Clarence Thomas? Didn't do it. Cavenaugh? Didn't do it. But because of the coverage of this by the drive bys are no doubt. What these women were taught it women's studies classes. They now feel remorseful that their child is a little boy. Never heard to say that they're going to have to work really hard to raise a good young, man. This is how subtle it is. So young mothers think that they are raising young predators in waiting and they're frightened by it. Now who could make that happen who could cause that kind of an attitude. Among young mothers. Yep. That's right. The American left and the drive by media anyway as to Brett Cavanaugh thank God for his spine. Thank God for his backbone and his stick to witness and his. Well, he likes himself. He's not ashamed. He's not embarrassed. He does nothing to apologize for. And he is a perfect nominee from Donald Trump in. This regard. It will have no effect on the left, by the way. They will twist and turn his letter into confirmation. The allegations are true. Why else would he be so panicked? They will say why else would he go to such great lengths to defend himself weren't true? They will say I've been there. I've seen it. This is how they react. Look, we got cavenaugh. He wrote a letter. He's now denying it. That means we got him, and they'll start on this new thing that Cavanaugh has now admitted his culpability with this flat out denial must be worried that people are believing it. They will say. That's how it all works. I understand. Also that Senator Orrin Hatch is really really angry at all this last minute charade behavior going on by the accusers and their sponsors. I hope he's not the only one let's take another brief break. We'll be back..

If he if Martha mcsally needs that endorsement or wants him to visit he's got to do it next month. He's got to do it in October. Well, I thought President Trump would come by the end of the month.

"Three three if you want to join the conversation here three three nine says trump just pick cavanaugh because he's supported the president's not being charged with anything while in office we talked about that earlier this was cory booker talking about how he chose cabinet as a quote get out of jail free card because cavenaugh has written before they doesn't think judges should be subject to investigations while frivolous investigations while in office or any investigation i think while in office and this could be a major reason why knowing donald trump as i do and there's a lot of other people do this could certainly be a major reason why he decided to pick cavenaugh there are other reasons that he went cabinet is supposedly he was turned off by cavenaugh initially because cavanaugh is a george bush guy he's a big bush family guy bush the one who put him on the federal court and trump didn't like that so he didn't like the fact that cavanaugh was it was a bushy but apparently he overcame that to pick cavenaugh and i think it was so far it appears to be a pretty smart pick politically by president trump i haven't seen anything out there that's been sort of detrimental to cavanaugh and he's usually usually some things bubble like he hired legal immigrants to to work at his house or something like that or some other scandal brewing i think that's the that's the kind of thing that we're going to need that democrats are going to need if they want to block cavanaugh there's gotta be some kind of scandal six one seven says republicans will only be able to lose one senator if mccain cannot vote that's true because otherwise they need to but seventyone says do you think red state dem's will confirm him i think there's going to be a lot of pressure on democrats even those in red states to stick with the democratic plan of blocking cavanaugh there could be one or two democrats out there who are little it depends how it goes really if it looks like cavanaugh is a very reasonable guy has very appealing personally has a good personal story that he didn't do anything no scandals percolate out there that he didn't do anything wrong any bombshells out there that there are no bomb shells out there i think it's going to be it's going to be tough for for democrats in those positions it's gonna be a tough call for them because they don't want to be seen as just blocking anything that president trump does and going along with the rest of the democrats but on the other hand they are democrats and there's going to be incredible pressure on them to stick with the party so it's going to take a lot to pry i think out of this part so far of what i've seen of this partisan divide here so far everybody is sticking to their sights democrats is sticking to their game plan republicans are sticking to their game plan i haven't heard anything from susan collins yet that could be a signal right there whether whether democrats are able to pry way any republican support but so far this looks like a strictly a partisan battle that's going to be played out with democrats on one side and republicans on the other that does in fact happen then that means judge cabinet will become justice cabinet because unless i can figure out a way to delay this we're going to see a cabinet confirmed before the fall elections three three nine wants to know whatever happened to.
