"You had people on the new the talking head Democrats. All this is going to be a runaway. It's going to be a landslide, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. You notice that Biden's folks were never saying then because I was making the contrast between this time and last time That the Democrat campaign you're Hillary's campaign was so cocky, so smug and Biden's campaign was not what you know why now because they're looking in the same things that the results are showing. And the question is, you know this is razor thin, but which side of the razor? Is this thing going up on and that's something that still needs to be determined. And I am fully willing To accept the outcome. As long as we're making sure that we have integrity in the elections. That's a big thing with a lot of folks out there. They don't think they think that the system is rigged. And if we can give everybody assurance on both sides of the aisle is not rig then I think that's the service that we should provide. They were due an exit polling. About folks and overwhelmingly The Biden folks were more concerned about Corona virus and they were about the economy on the trump side. They were overwhelmingly more concerned about the economy than they were about Corona virus. And this is basically where we are. I mean, you got this is what a Republican sounds like. This was one of Democrat from. I mean, that's basically It's basically what it is. What is boiling down to and it's a shame that we have to choose one over the other. But that's the way they've they've. They've made this. That's what they've turned this into its a Corona virus versus the economy thing, and we can actually do both. And I know you've heard me say this 1000 times about making sure the people of most vulnerable or out of the way of this thing. But the rest of us need to go about our business. And we're starting to see that I haven't seen a whole lot of Corona virus talk. Since the election is I thought that we might not because I mean, all of a sudden, Corona virus is not that big of a deal. Now, people are still wearing masks and things like this without freaking out over it, as they were before because they don't need to get you all you know, frakked up with fear before you go to the polls that part so you notice the fear part of it. They're not really emphasizing so much. So we'll see President. They're anxiously waiting in the White House briefing room for the president to come out, and it looks like because several other folks who normally proceed him have trickled out some of his aid folks. Have trickled out, and so I don't know what he's waiting on, whether he's getting more information, but we we expect him to address what's been going on, and I hope he's going to do it in a measured matter now he's the good news for President Trump. You can't change the vote. You know, no matter what he does now it's not gonna matter. This is just reputation stuff. Now This has nothing to do with whether he's going to get another four more years. I mean, here you are, then stomp his feet and Until he's blue in the face, and it's not going to change things. Faras the vote because of the the vote's already over. We think, Let some judge somewhere orders a new election in some of these states and then Then we're right back at it. I find it interesting Those I continue to look at these tallies of these key states. And you know, I know it's 6 45 6 44 on the East Coast. But in Nevada I know what time is it there? 3, 45 or so whatever. I don't see anything changing. And it's not like we're looking at static numbers. These are real time not not know as they vote as they count when they can't win the game. But as they submit this To the Central Election Commission in the individual states was George Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania. And apparently, they're not.

"Over a fraudulent presidential election in August, now in another former Soviet republic, Kyrgyzstan something similar. On Sunday, Kyrgyzstan held parliamentary elections. Protesters have since accused the government of staging a rigged vote and have come out in force in the capital Bishkek. Yesterday. Opposition groups storm the country's parliament building and seize control. Later, the country's election commission officially annulled the vote, and today there is no government in Bishkek. Kolinahr. A jury by Eva is a member of Kyrgyzstan's election commission. She spoke with me earlier today through an interpreter. I asked her how all these events began and what's been happening since The Caterham. When the first results started coming in, it became clear that only four parties past the threshold in order to make it into parliament. These results shocked people. People were hoping that at least one or two opposition parties would make it into parliament. But even before the elections leading up to them, many of the parties were claiming that there were violations Having to do with the elections. Citizens, parties and independent observers were pointing out that there were irregularities. So Gulnara why have people been protesting? That you practiced of bowling. There are a couple of reasons before the elections. There were videos all over social media showing this corruption how people are getting paid to vote a certain way how government officials locally were forcing people to vote. Government officials were using their position of power to pressure people. People expected the government to respond. They expected that the police would respond, but nothing was done. So by the time election day rolled around, people felt like there was an injustice and the government wasn't doing anything about it. There is clearly a lot of anger. What was it like watching the parliament building in Bishkek being taken over by protesters and then burning? How surprised were you? Of a beautiful table of food, but I was in shock. The next day. The parties that didn't get seats in parliament called for a protest protest started, many young people came out. There were people who supported these parties. But there are also provocations and they're also could have been criminals who are out there trying to get the protesters to storm the parliament. The police took action. Stun grenades and tear gas were used. But that didn't affect the protesters. So the White House the parliament was taken over. Later on. Glenna, the head of Kyrgyzstan's election commission, on which you are a member, announced that results of the parliamentary vote had been officially annulled. What led to that decision. Jessica Parky 10 party's appeal to the Central Election Commission demanding to annul the results of the vote. And yesterday the members of the Central Election Commission gathered and came to that decision. When all the results the basis of the decision. We're both political factors, and there were also factors having to do with violations of law. That was the decision. Gulen are. What do you see happening next? I mean, there is no government in Kyrgyzstan right now. What is happening next? It's really hard to tell what's going to happen in the near future. Because this situation is highly unstable. Two nights in a row, groups of young people have been defending city because crowds of other people are trying to destroy their property, so it's hard to tell when we will come to some sort of a consensus. Citizens are really worried about the situation and no one knows how we're going to get out of this deep political crisis. Cool on our job. Eva is a member of Kyrgyzstan's election commission. Thank you very much for your time today. Special Thank you. Let's turn now to the US election and what's at stake with it abroad..

Some do support the demands, but some others like Coca Cola and Target say, yes, we're going to pause reconsider our Facebook advertising, in some cases, all of their social media advertising. They say they're not officially joining this boycott, and I think what's going on there is these companies feel pressure there. These huge protests this reckoning over racism we're seeing in this country. Companies feel pressure to show they're doing something. But they also want to put some distance between themselves in this campaign, so they're more free to make their own decisions about whether and when to resume advertising on Facebook. Well, how is Facebook, responding? Facebook says it invest billions of dollars in keeping its platform safe. And just yesterday, it said it banned hundreds of accounts in groups connected to the boogaloo movement. That's a loose network of far right extremists, and that's the kind of thing advertisers want to see the company doing. Here's what Facebook's top spokesman Nick Clegg, told CNN on Sunday. Facebook. We have absolutely no incentive to tolerate hate speech. We don't like you know, users don't like it advertises understandably don't like it. Clegg pointed out that over 100 billion messages are sent on Facebook's platforms every day, and so, you know, the company tries to crack down. It's not perfect. You can't remove everything. Last week, CEO Mark Mark Zuckerberg did announce some policy changes Facebook's going to put warning labels on post from politicians like President Trump. The briquettes rules, and that's a huge reversal. But when Zuckerberg made that announcement, he did not mention the advertising boycott at all. Well, can I just ask? You've mentioned a couple of times here that for many companies, this is a temporary departure there coming back. How dependent? Are they on Facebook? Well, you know, Facebook has a huge stable of advertisers. I mean, it's whole business's advertising. But for many of these advertisers, it's just not really a choice to leave Facebook, Facebook and other social media groups. Let them reach specific communities at a fraction of what they would pay to, you know, buy a commercial on broadcast television. You know, a really good example I think is one of one of the biggest spenders right now is the Biden campaign. You know, Joe Biden has been very vocal lately and criticizing Facebook. He's calling for changes. He says the company needs to crack down moron hate speech. But you know when NPR asked his campaign if it was going to stop advertising on Facebook, the spokesman told us quote with less than five months until election Day. We cannot afford to see these platforms to Donald Trump and his lies. That's a quote NPR's Shannon Bond. Thanks so much. Thank you. Russians are voting today on more than 200 amendments to their constitution. They're being asked to give a simple yes or no answer to all. Here's why it's so high stakes. One of the amendments would allow Vladimir Putin to stay in power for another 16 years. NPR's Lucien Kim is in Moscow. The Russian constitution is strangely specific about presidential term limits.

So smokin pineapples hanging out with the little people who are giving you access to secret restaurants. What else do you need? I mean I know why we have talked about lectures. Yeah. I mean, the best part about, you know. The last barricade, which is the restaurant that you referenced or, or the best time that we had there was, was after we had completed our work, so we were we were in country, working with the Ukrainian secret service, and the central election commission and to some extent the cyber police just to, to kind of keep an eye on things be there on in-country in case something happened and to, to monitor those systems that we had external access to you, because we didn't have an we didn't have any privileged access, or anything. We were again guest in their country and, and we, we redid that with kid gloves. And so. But after we were done sitting in the bar, and kind of toasting. Literally free and fair elections. And, and being happy that it appeared that a the election had gone off smoothly with no active interference that we were were aware of. And this, this, this particular event was the first of the two rounds. We went back to the second round with a slightly different team. But, but in both cases, the monitoring was successful, the, the interactions with successful, no oddities were observed and things were very good. And what we what we ultimately learned from our experience. There was was how badly the help America vote act impacted American election security in in. We'll get into what that act was in a moment. But the, the key thing understand about Ukrainian elections, is they are. Entirely paper based if you were following that election, you will know that there was thirty nine candidates in the first round, and there were pictures all over social media news site of these huge long ballots that people were were using. And you'd fill that ballot out and cast your vote and stick it in giant square transparent boxes. And then those, those ballots are counted by hand and it isn't until you get to the point where they are doing what we would call the election night reporting system, which are those systems that provide. After close of polls, the running tally of the elections that are unofficial. Until they're certified, but it's pretty common practice globally to provide these kind of, you know, this is where we are. And you've all watched CNN, or whatever to see that, and so that it's only there that they really become a vulnerable in those are the, those externally facing election night reporting system for some of the stuff that we were we were. Monitoring as well as providing some additional guidance on the backside and so. I'm sure that, that we'll talk a bit about not here, but in the future about what we did there. But honestly, the stories very narrow and the story that comes from there is that there's value in, in reducing your threat surface, and that every time that we talked to a government about election security, we have to understand those specific characteristics of that governments formed democracy in how the implant does voting procedures to give him the correct guidance in. So now that's what we did. And you know, we, it was a Kiev's a great city if you ever go there, the last barricade is my favorite restaurant in the world. And the passer is both a test sample, Boorda day. I'm sure you'll remember it. And. It means fight, and you will win. It's from a nineteenth century poem by a great Ukrainian poet. And what's key about last barricade is that it is. It is just beneath and just across from my end square, which is where the the revolution sorta occurred for four years ago, and is also under what is a gateway or a barricade in ancient one that still stands, and that's why it's called last barricade. Like they don't rotate that password, then nowadays..
