Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway
"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units. They've had a huge amount of debt to pay down. Which is why they've been selling them off. We talked here about when they sold the series their airliner which was sold off to airbus. And this is going to be Job cuts all over the place in a separate article. I saw that. I think about three hundred people will lose their jobs in wichita allow the production is based another arrest. Seven hundred i think are being lost in either quebec or ontario of because there's some being lost in both provinces i forget which one was the most but one was seven hundred and the other was a one hundred so big impact All the way around it does really make party a instead of the cult conglomerate that it was with all kinds of different things including a railcar business very much a single business entity and we've talked in the past how feel a lot of the business jet companies. They've gotten multiple businesses Textron's a great example And so this is really gonna make them highly subject to the you know the ups and downs of the market and fortunately the markets in an upturn business jets are selling well but boy. This'll be a real challenge for them. The future i think when there's a downturn in the market bill. Lear william powell. Lear was also an interesting guy course. he's He died longtime ago in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight. So it's been it's been quite a while and we've mentioned before that he actually invented the eight track Which many of our Younger listeners are not gonna know what that is. Tell us what is that. Because i don't know what an eight track is. I had one of those In my truck. Back in the let's see would have been in the Early seventies but he was a self taught engineer. But you know what. I didn't realize is that he was actually a call. Your trophy winner. But not for the learjet. Do you know what he won the collier trophy for david. No i didn't know he won a collier trophy. He did for the f. five autopilot. The autopilot was for the lear jet. Not for an f five. That was a test david. You passed double checking very good man. So yeah now bombarded says that they're going to continue to to support the aircraft ecorse encouraging and really to be expected But yeah it's kind of sad to see an old name like that disappear all right we have From marketwatch archer aviation gets one billion dollar order from united airlines on the same day announces. A deal to go public Max united airlines united is getting interested in vitale aircraft.
"Days ago. We observed the thirty fifth anniversary of the space shuttle. Challenger's bush in the killed seven brave astronauts and a chance to actually get into that. I just thought it kind of bring the room down and it would it. Would basically a habit gets reflect back on the failure that the shuttle program eventually became. I'm man i'm and it's arguable. That the shuttle missions were a failure but it just Conversations before with people who said it's the equivalent of taking a bus out of the garage. Hang around the earth a couple times. That's all it was but you know it was interesting. At least the space program had something going on at the time. And i thought it would. I even met a shuttle astronaut Good guy Just that by the time We had a conversation on a cable channel about moon landing in. I didn't like each other afterwards. And i i didn't. I didn't wanna cause trouble with him. In fact he was just an amazing astronaut. Let's astronaut my god guys space. You know pro. You know again. I look at astronauts. It's like i. I'd look at a veteran. Or i look at a soldier who fights. I mean they got more than i do. I sit studio. And gripe all the time but i just you know. I was amazed by The he was not my first astronaut. I've met a few Never met buzz aldrin or ordeal armstrong. Or anybody like that. A few shuttle astronauts. I've i've met a former nasa. Well no i interviewed chuck cernan but i was never. I interviewed him over the phone. So i i don't know i just have an affinity for space i i i love it because of course i love the topic of aliens. Ufo's avi lopburi more. We come on. Space travels amazing. I mean we'd star trek star wars. These are things. I really like And you know noticing too. I grew up in utah. Where more than fire call was twenty miles away thirty miles away from where i lived and this is where the rings were made for the space shuttle program of course the failed challenger explosion was because of the ordering problems were more than thiokol and only two failures in the whole space shuttle program where people were killed. Astronauts were killed. No real new information though. That was out there and You know and we kept being promised this was just you know the shuttle program was going to be used to not only take the bus out for a dry but it was also going to be used to go to the space station and bring astronauts food and stuff and now well for the longest time we were contracting russia. We're having a deal with russia to send astronauts to the space shuttle to the space station to well actually said food to the space as well and i thought why are we relying on russia in and this whole nonsense about how russia was our enemy and everything. They're our enemy. Why are they helping us with our space program. Just didn't make any sense. But yeah i mean looking back at our field. Space programs is important. Indicate that president. Barack obama crippled dass his efforts to send astronauts beyond low earth orbit. When obama came into office. he didn't want a number of other. Presidents have done to determine their goals for nasa. He formed a presidential commission to study the space agency and then he came up with some recommendations so he you a committee the committee. You basically. you're saying well. I think there are far more important things. We need to invest our money. And so i'm gonna cut your budget. You know basically what area. We're gonna bring you altogether. Cut your budget. So you're going to have to deal with you know whatever that's all it's been cutting budget and budget cutting and and And so that's why you have now space x that's why you have You know these other companies visas and others who want to do space because you know space has been neglected. The budgets have been neglected in our government for some time but we had a lot of conservative presidents like george w bush and of course donald trump. Who said yeah. We're all the speech program. Let's get it going. And the reason why is because there's brooke obama once said and this is one of the reasons why he basically said no to you know exorbitant budgets for space. He says well. You know spaces. In america. First issue. And we should be more universal. We she wore. We wore worldly with our concepts in our conquest of space. We need to do you know we didn't do it all together as a world. It's a it's a world bring people together in a world government or world philosophy. I think reagan kinda hinted to what he said. You know our differences worldwide would vanish. We were facing an alien threat from outside of this world but that was an alien threat. That was the idea that if there were aliens out there wanting to eat us then we would certainly band together as a group. I mean that's what independence day was all about right. See the independence day. Movie or armageddon were nasa saves the day. You know it's time and time again. We get told it. Our space program is amazing. Well yeah they do amazing things. But it's not as amazing as it used to be. I mean lockheed. Martin ceo norm augustine Headed up the augustine commission during the obama administration actually was named after maga sanofi headed up with the. It's called the augustine commission and basically they returned with a set of recommendations after few wants convening during the obama administration so the commission found the program then in existence project constellation was not execute under any reasonable
After Record Turnout, Republicans Are Trying to Make It Harder to Vote
"Louise Kelly, a record 158 million Americans voted last November. Many cast their ballots early and by mail well now, in the aftermath of President Biden's victory, some Republican state lawmakers are proposing bills that would effectively make it harder to vote. Here to talk us through what is happening with voting laws in three states where the 2020 election was really close our Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting, Abigail, since key of WK are in Lansing, Michigan. And been Giles of Cage's in Phoenix. Arizona. Welcome all three of you. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you for having us, Steven. I've got to start with you. Not only because George is my home state, but because there has, of course been so much focus on Georgia and on Trump's efforts to throw out Biden's victory there. What are GOP lawmakers they're discussing. Well this week, Many Republican lawmakers who pushed false claims of election fraud have signed on to a number of bills in the Senate aimed at making it harder to vote. And that's after Democrats flipped both U. S Senate seats and help defeat President Trump. They would do things like Ban absentee ballot. Dropbox is severely restrict who could request a mail in absentee ballot and would undo the so called motor voter law that automatically updates your voter registration. Whenever you go to the D. M V. Now there are a few proposals that seem most likely to be enacted. One would add some sort of security requirement when you request an absentee by male vote in the future, such as writing your driver's license I d number or sending in a photocopy of your I D when you request a ballot, All right, let's head west over to Arizona Been a zoo, you know Well, Biden's victory was razor thin there as it was in Georgia. What is the debate unfolding where you are? Well, we're seeing voting laws that would impact every step of the voting process. Starting with getting registered. One measure would make it more difficult for county officials to go out into the community and hold voter registration drives. There was even a bill to abolish the incredibly popular vote by mail system in Arizona. The sponsor backtracked off that idea within hours of introducing the bill. What other ideas include requiring people to get early ballot envelopes notarized that's been described by some as a poll tax, and another proposal says You could get an early ballot mailed to you, but you couldn't tell it back. They want you to hand deliver it to a polling place, and perhaps the most controversial ideas would directly impact the presidential election results. One plan would divvy up electoral college votes by congressional district like Maine and Nebraska. Another would actually let the Legislature straight up, revoke the certification of results and let lawmakers pick who gets the electoral college votes. Wow. Um, Abigail. How about Michigan Democrats control the executive branch, but Republicans control the Legislature. How does that dynamic play out in terms of what's happening with voting laws on the discussion over what to do with him in Michigan? Well, it's been a real split screen. We have Democrats and clerks who are pointing to this election as the safest and most secure of their careers. Bar. Bayram is one of the clerks from the larger counties and Michigan, and she called on Republicans this week to say what's been clear throat. All of these hearings that this election was fair and free of fraud. At the end of the day. If people do not want to believe this backed, they're not gonna believe it. Regardless of how many audits are performed. Reports are issue or how transparent the processes and in Michigan are. Democratic Secretary of State is saying she wants to do things like male absentee ballot applications to registered voters and federal elections. Republicans are countering with things like putting cameras on unstaffed ballot. Dropbox is neither of those are likely to get very far. But there is middle ground on issues like making sure there's common training for pole challengers on Stephen and been a quick quick reaction from each of you on that. How much of this in your state? It is. Real policy proposal. How much is for show? Well, Mary Louise after the last couple months of hand wringing over votes we've seen top Republican lawmakers in Georgia say that they're not going to do some of the more extreme proposals. They're not for cutting, no excuse absentee voting, and many of these bills are likely just to appease their constituents who say that more needs to be done. Why do Republicans in your states say changes like this are necessary, Given that there were no major issues with absentee voting in the 2020 election, Given that federal officials have confirmed it was the most secure election in American History. Stephen Bendy one. Do you want to take that one? Justification in Arizona is Pretty simply put as distrust, citing the misinformation that's out there and citing the fact that there are a lot of these Republicans constituents who say they have doubts whether or not those doubts are based on any valid information. Republicans have kind of push past that and just said the fact that there are doubt justifies continued discussions about the election. And changes to the law that they say might inspire some more confidence
How are Republicans grappling with a post-Trump Washington?
"The fight for the future of the republican party in the post trump era has arrived and one of the earliest proxy. Battles is playing out in the house of representatives republican conference chair. Liz cheney the third ranking republican in the house is facing pressure from some members of the conference following her vote to impeach now former president donald trump earlier this month for incitement of insurrection. Though it was the most bipartisan impeachment of president ever there was still only a handful of republicans who voted across party lines with democrats for impeachment. Cheney was the member with the highest name recognition and it's earned her the ire of some trump faithfuls who are now circulating a petition and calling for the wyoming lawmaker to resign from her spot in leadership representative matt rosendahl a freshman from montana and one of the lawmakers taking the lead in the effort won't say how many lawmakers have signed onto the petition so far his office says the timing is still quote up in the air on when hill. Submit the resolution. In the meantime the conference is brimming with drama with lines forming between those who would rather forget trump ever lead their party and those who think his brand of politics is its future is basically a right wing version of cancel. Culture says representative adam kensinger of a trump critic and one of the ten republicans to vote in favor of impeachment. If you don't like donald trump and you vote against donald trump. We're going to cancel you. We're going to say that you don't have a place in this party. It's no different house. Republican leadership didn't whip members to vote either way on impeachment leaving lawmakers to come to their own decision about whether the president incited a pro-trump mob to attack the us capitol on january sixth a day before the vote. Cheney put out a statement announcing she planned to vote against trump none of this would have happened without the president. The president could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the united states. Have his office and his oath to the constitution. Cheney said in the statement. I will vote to impeach the president. The resolution tax that rosendahl office referred time to argues that democrats had used cheney's position quote as justification for a truncated impeachment process. It also notes that her position was out of line with most of the conference. Many republican lawmakers have been quick to fall on either side of the internal debate. With some coming to cheney's defense despite having themselves voted against impeachment. I don't think they ought to be punished. For voicing their opinion or casting their vote particularly when people were told ahead of time is a vote of conscience says representative. Tom cole. A senior member from. They're having to explain this back home to their own electors. I don't think we need to pile on to add additional penalties in washington dc while other leaders have also expressed support for cheney. Some of it has been tepid at best a spokesperson for leader. Kevin mccarthy said in an email to time that he quote does not support efforts to remove. Cheney is conference chair but in an interview on gray televisions. Full court press with greta. Van susteren mccarthy said. He thought she had to answer the conferences questions and registered concern that he hadn't been told of her decision ahead of time. Clearly you've heard some of our members who want to remove her. I'm not in that camp. Whip steve scalise said in a fox news appearance. This is an internal discussion that we're having and that we're going to work through kensinger said leadership hasn't been forceful enough in defending cheney kevin mccarthy can shut this the hell down right now but if they wanna go through with this and they want to have a discussion about leadership and they think that we should be on defense and liz should be on defense. We've got news for them. We're not the ones that should beyond defense kensinger tells time they should cheney's office declined an interview request for this article but in a fox news appearance on january twenty first. She said her vote came from a belief that her obligation was to the constitution. And to do what was right transcended politics. We have differences of opinion about a whole range of issues including about this one. I anticipate an confident. We will be united as a conference going forward. Cheney said the fallout hasn't been contained to washington back home in wyoming one high profile challenger anthony bouchard a state. Senator has already come forward to say. He'll primary cheney next year and one of trump's biggest defenders in the house. Florida representative matt gaetz travel to the wyoming state capital where he held a rally on thursday targeting. Cheney turn down for what hashtag removed. Cheney gates tweeted afterwards but there are prominent republicans from cheney's home state who have voiced their support for her as well. The house is going to make their own leadership decisions. But i support any says wyoming. Senator john barrosso as much as the two chambers of congress like to think of themselves as different bodies with different considerations perhaps the biggest short term take away from this still unfolding drama is the warning house. Republicans are sending to republicans in the senate which will next month begin the second impeachment trial of donald trump asked if he worried about the message. The house was sending two republican senators. Who might vote to convict. Trump barosso said senators would vote based on their own interpretation of the constitution. I don't see any correlation he says.

Don't Count Out Kacper Zuk
"Zouk. I mean you look at his effectiveness against graduates. Made seventy percent of his first serves was twenty seven of thirty on first-serve points in the match nine of thirteen on second serve points so again. He's thirty six of forty three only lost seven points on serve throughout the duration of the entire match. That's freaking nuts and look casper soup another guy who only six feet tall but very alejandro davidovich fokina e davi go fanny in his athleticism. The word that comes to mind is just spring. He's a good athlete. He's gonna track down that extra ball in the corner. He the ball is going to explode off of his strings. His first serve is absolutely a weapon. You look for casper zouk over his last fifty two weeks. This is a guy who has had a ton of success onto or you look overall. Where's he at. In terms of his record. Casper zouk thirty three and nine in his last fifty two weeks onto or now you expand that to twenty nineteen he seventy and twenty eight overall in his last two seasons seven itf titles in eight total finals. Of course unlike Evan furnace looked for casper. Zoo he already has a semi-final at a challenger level under his belt made the semifinals. in calgary. last year he knocked off asheq pospisil in three sets. We all know when onto have a very successful. Indoor hardcourt season was in the midst. I should say of a very successful indoor hardcourt season when he lost that match in calgary but yeah for zouk seven titles in eight finals like everyone gets angry because fa doesn't win enough in finals. Casper's zook is winning and finals and again nine tara. Seven ten in his career and challenger matches. That's not great but it's not horrible.
Tennis Player to Watch: Evan Furness
"Guy. I want to talk about today. Who i think has been if not the best player one of the five best players at the it level since the start of the twenty twenty season. And that's evan furnace who you look at his career trajectory for those of you. Who don't know about edmund furnace furnace twenty two years old going to turn twenty three in the frenchman had a career high in the junior rankings of number thirty six so again. That's not gonna blow you out of the water right. Furnace was in this junior slam champion. Who much was expected of. Yeah he made a third round of junior wimbledon in twenty sixteen lost his devan. ac- pass. Yeah he made you know play. A bunch of the junior slammed had good enough results to become a top fifty junior in the world. But how many top fifty. Former top fifty. Juniors in the world have never heard of pro circuit. The answer is quite a few and you know for furnace. It was steady linear progression. You look at you know. He played his first pro tour match all the way back in two thousand fourteen when he was you know a i think sixteen or fifteen or sixteen years old played. One match. Didn't win it. You know you start to look at as he went through the years in two thousand fifteen he was able to play twenty matt or twenty one matches when eleven and ten. That's he's in twenty sixteen. He goes sixteen and thirteen. You know so again. steady progression. His first full season as twenty seventeen. He goes forty two and twenty eight in pro events during that season now he did not believe make any pro finals at twenty seventeen season but pretty quickly found himself making the jump off to To playing a full time to schedule you look at what he was able to accomplish. A four evan furnished during his first few seasons twenty eighteen he makes his first two It finals he bought ends up winning in portugal. Next up david gaz in cameroon. In the end of november he ends up losing two skandal mansuri than hong kong. He ends up knocking off. Julian lens makes another final during the twenty thousand nine hundred season although it is safe to say twenty nineteen you look at the results. Furnish was able to put together. That season You know relatively unsuccessful compared to previous years human thirty three and twenty nine during that twenty nine nine season now during that twenty nineteen season. I believe he also played his largest amount of challenge matches and challenger level events. He really struggled during one thousand nine hundred eighty play you know. You look in his career in his cert- currently six thousand nine hundred nine in challenger events during the course of his career during that twenty nine th season he played i wanna say ten challenger matches and i believe he went to in two hundred eight in those ten challenger matches so that's why his record fell a little bit. He started to try to make the jump at the end of twenty nineteen but then in twenty twenty in the midst of a pandemic given it was very difficult to find playing opportunities. And if you were in the vomit zone three hundred five hundred which normally you probably get into challenge qualities given the limited playing opportunities. You're lucky to find futures events to play last year. That's what a furnace had to spend a lot of time doing and guess what that is. Where evan furnished thrived. You look at what he has done. Since the start of the twenty twenties

The president is still falsely claiming the results of the election now rest in the hands of Mike Pence, who will preside over the joint session of Congress today when electoral votes are formally counted. Still, sources tell ABC News President Trump made it clear depends. He expects him to deny Biden victory but behind closed doors at a White House lunch on Tuesday, sources say, Pence pushed back telling the president he does not have the power to block Biden's decisive win. In a statement, the president denied it, saying they're in total agreement that the vice president has the power to act, even though that is not how it works. The vice president has no actual authority to accept or reject any votes, but it's not stopping the president from mounting a pressure campaign Great vice president There are great vice president comes through for us. He's a great guy, because if he doesn't come through, I won't like it. But as much this'll as even one of the president's long time lawyers publicly breaks ranks, I actually don't think that's what the Constitution has in mind if that were the case. Any vice president could refuse and any election and in what critics call a theatrical stunt, more than half of Republicans in the House and 13 Republican senators are expected to lodge formal challenges to results in at least three states. States that have already certified the election states were courts have repeatedly found no credible evidence of the president's false claims of widespread voter fraud. The group of challengers do not have the votes to overturn the will of the American electorate. Republicans like Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe, calling the challenge of violation of my oath of office.

"ABC News rejects Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock will defeat Republican incumbent Senator Kelly Leffler and one of George's to Senate runoff elections. In a victory speech, Warnock acknowledged his historic role as Georgia's first black elected senator. The improbable journey that led me to this place in this historic moment in America. Could only happen here. But his opponent, a staunch ally of President Trump, not giving in. We have a path to victory, and we're staying on it. I thea other race between Democrat Jon Ossoff's and Republican David Perdue remains too close to call separated by just a couple 1000 votes. Democrats need to win both seats to
Mitch McConnell to rebuke GOP challenge to certify Electoral College vote
"Members of congress will meet today to certify the electoral college results showing joe biden won the presidential election but was normally a formality has taken on some political drama as several lawmakers are expected to raise objections. We've reported the maneuver isn't expected to change the outcome. But there still could be a long term impact for more. I want to bring in national political reporter. Allies collins into the conversation was a good morning. Highmark elisa based off of your conversations with your sources is there concern of lasting damage some of these lawmakers who may be challenging. The results are brand new. And we'll have to have relationships with their colleagues on both sides of the aisle absolutely. Yes this is revealing a rift in the gop. And it's if you look at it. It's basically new members or members who might have twenty twenty four presidential ambitions or who come from very conservative states like louisiana versus members who've been in the senate for a long time mitch mcconnell. The senate majority leader urged his members not to do this. And it is very unusual for members to break with mitch mcconnell so the fact that some new members a handful of them are coming into the senate and this is one of the first things that they vote for could really cause issues within the republican caucus in the senate so what about the conversations within the parties. I mean specifically the republican party as you mentioned. Some republican leaders are encouraging their colleagues to retreat. Others not so much. There's a lot of concern and frustration with republicans. There are a handful of republicans who are up for reelection in two thousand twenty two in competitive states and they feel like their colleagues in possibly their ambitions. You know josh hawley of missouri. Ted cruz of texas are two names that keep popping up as people who they feel like are basically putting own interests their ambitions for twenty twenty four presidential runs they have not announced presidential runs. I have to be clear but they are two names that have been talked about possibly running in two thousand twenty four. They feel like they're omissions are putting themselves ahead of their colleagues and some of these senators up in two thousand twenty. Two are worried that they're basically going to have to either vote against the president who is still very popular with the party and possibly get a primary challenger from the right or you know vote with the president and hurt their chances in a general election in a state that is competitive and so there is a lot of frustration within the party. And that's what mitch. Mcconnell tried to urge republicans you know not to do. He basically said you'll be putting your colleagues you know endanger and they're just are you know about a dozen senators who basically ignored that message and for whatever reason decided that they are going to side with the president on this. Is there anything taking place. Maybe not so much in the public view to try and instill some stability and uniformity. So there were a lot of conversations. I think at this week people have really come out and made their decisions and said what they want to say and there are some real accusations out there especially with some of the senators who have said that they will vote against these efforts. You know they said my job is to defend the constitution. Some people are accusing their colleagues and their political ambitions over following the constitution. Now you know it's the daily reminder that there is no evidence of widespread fraud so it's really important to note that these dozen senators who are objecting. In over one hundred house members are objecting in states where there is no evidence of widespread fraud. The president has challenge this in many times in the courts. Been shot down and so there was a lot of conversations behind the scenes and concern initially but now many people have come out and said which way they'll vote and allies as you know from being in washington. The ratification of the electoral votes is ceremonial but d. c. is bracing for protests. Right this is something. President trump has urged his supporters to come to washington. He's really played up the day. You know making. It seem almost like the election will be overturned Which you know. We have no indication that that is possible worth talking about the split within the republican party. Of course no. Democrat is likely to stand with the president on this but Thousands of supporters have come to washington the mayor law enforcement in dc are urging residents to stay away. There's concern of violence And so we don't know exactly what's going to happen but we know that thousands of people are already in dc. Supporting the president on

President Trump Holding the nighttime rally in North Georgia in the town of Dalton, earlier, the vice president Mike Pence warn conservative Christians in Georgia that the state's high stakes Senate runoff may offer in Mr Pence's words, the last line of defense against the Democratic takeover in Washington. Republicans can maintain their hold on the chamber. If just one of their candidates win well. Democrats need to win both to achieve a 50 50 split that would make Vice President elect Kamila Harris the tie breaking vote.

Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.

I'm thank ends as more humiliation than actual feelings. Because it's on TV. I mean right. I think if that happened in real life you could shooting. He can hide away in. She happens and stuff but she control her tears on the court million to win so yeah Yeah uh-huh yeah that's the thing I mean. I've been doing reality TV. Leave for almost a decade now. And it's like I mean it's it's a whole other world in itself. There's nothing normal about what we do. Know having your life taped and then re watching it and then people judging you and all of that so speaking of that how everything you do on a reality show you gotta know their cameras there. Obviously especially on like y'all cyber shows like when they hidden cameras in the House and whatnot. I mean they're not heading there but forget yeah I mean they're like flies on the wall I mean even I could be in a scene on vanderbilt rules where to cameraman right there. But I'm so in the moment it's like you don't remember that the cameras are there and you don't really care because you're doing your job and your jobs. CBS entertained but with this past season. And I know you guys. Probably it hasn't aired yet so you probably can't say too much now. You weren't on disowned right draws the one in Prague. I don't know maybe you were okay. I don't I don't know maybe you are. Aren't I guess. The castles at released yet. But there's been enough on social media that you guys are going to have to give me a little a little.

I don't know exactly what happened but I do know she went on the show. She cheated on Mikey and she was too much of a coward to call him and tell oh him and she told her parents found out from her dad.

I Dunno hardrock is like the desert and almost like Jesus too much no. I think it's just moving to a different hotel a little more north on the Strip because the hard rock is someone bought them out and I guess ask. The show's move. I did hear read through Hong reversing the entire hotel..

"The dream of the shuttle as a as a vehicle that could fire off weekly a little bit like Elon. Musk's dream for for SPACEX launches Shuttle whistled that way as we're going to be able to Rehab it put it back backup. We have four of them. Were going to keep cycling through them. And after the Challenger the pace completely slowed down like we can't launch them that fast anymore anymore and for the rest of the program shuttle launches proceeded at a much more deliberate pace. The families of the crew organized the Challenger Center for space. Science and education is a permanent memorial to to the crew in the form of nonprofit educational donal centers across the country. I think there's forty something of them Which is pretty neat? There's the space shuttle Challenger memorial and Arlington National Cemetery and end at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center. There is the forever remembered installation which honors the seven astronauts that died in nineteen eighty-six Eighty six import challenger also A follow up about Barbara Morgan. The backup to Christa McAuliffe Barbara Barbara Morgan. After the teach- teacher in space program ended after the Challenger disaster She became an astronaut. That was the she followed. The teacher in space thing she spoke in nineteen eighty six Around the country For NASA she went back and started teaching again but then she applied to be an astronaut and in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. She was selected as an astronaut candidate as a mission specialist she trained and she flew on. SDS One eighteen in August of two thousand seven so so That in the end Barbara Morgan did get her chance to go into space. And when on I believe on that mission there was a lot lot of education stuff and a lot of Challenger remembrances it was a moment You know twenty years after the fact to reflect with with somebody who worked closely with Christa McAuliffe on On that moment when they were doing the S. Mission for SDS one eighteen. So Barbara Morgan. ended up becoming an astronaut. After all of that and her teacher in space training which is a kind of a fun story that come out of a terrible I think so. In September of eighty eight discovery was the shuttle's return to flight mission future plans put civilians on sort of flights were scrapped. Opt and NASA did his thing for a long time and then you know you mentioned you know several years later in two thousand seventeen years later we have the Columbia accident and two thousand three and a lot of those causes. I mean even though the the cause of the accident was different it was phone falling from the shuttle. There's Irie Irie feelings when you talk about the two of these things together right because issues that we're known for a long time and sort would've believed not to be a big deal. Things that engineers were worried about but management said. Oh that's not possible it is really upsetting. How all similar these two these two stories are and Challenger was it was blow one against the shuttle mission? Columbia was definitely the second of course wound down in the years after that. Yeah another thing. You mentioned the the civilian program one thing that's not widely known but came out after the Columbia accident is that NASA was actually considering another civilian in space and after the Columbia accident. They said No. This is too dangerous for us to do this. We're not gonNA do it anymore. But there was a lot of serious talk before the Columbia accident at that. Miles O'Brien from CNN was space correspondent would fly shuttle mission and would be the first journalist in space but again after that accident. They I said you know we. We need to start. We'd figure out what went wrong here. We need to continue our ISS obligations assembling the Space Station and then we need to shut down the subtle program which is ultimately in two thousand eleven. What happened so yeah the Challenger? Science centers are a great legacy of of Challenger. Barbara Morgan got to talk about the challenge crew and Christa McAuliffe. When she went into space they've got asteroids name for them? There's is there it is a it is an important part of space history And important for it not to be forgotten because it's also a warning about how how dangerous spaces and how Systems need to be put in place like we talked about earlier about commercial crew to ensure the safety of the astronauts. So if you want to learn more about challenger we have a bunch of links over in the.

"Of dark gray smoke from the right side. Solid rocket booster. That is a burn through. That was a brittle ring getting blasted through by hot gas from the solid rocket. Booster because the o-ring couldn't expand to and show its resilience because it was frozen and therefore God brittle And that meant aluminum oxides from the solid rocket. Booster propellant Sealed the joint joint. They melted the metal but it was temporary kind of like accidental drip dripping of metal to kind of create a seal zeal and then the Combined the continued heat from the propellant and the wind shear So they launch and they and and everything Kinda we think of it as being like a solid item but the wind wind shear is causing it to bend at least a little bit and if you can imagine sort of like a little a frozen thing like popping ice cube out of an ice cube tray. It's that kind of thing. It moves a little bit it POPs off the this little sort of temporary welded ended thing that happened accidentally. And that is that moment where the flame can now escape out from the RBM can escape out that joint on the right side. Sr Star B. Net at sixty four seconds after launch that Flame Burns through the external tank so for remember how the shuttle is configured. The the shuttle Stack is a giant center tank that the shuttle is sitting on It's not a rocket the it's a fuel tank and that fuel is going into the shuttle and then the shuttle's main engines on the back are blasting out the contents of that so the shuttle's fuel tank but for launches using giant external tank and. RB's are on the sides and these are the solid rocket boosters that give it extra lift and once they're ignited they can't be turned off because that's how the chemical propulsion works on the solid rocket boosters. That can't be throttled. They just go so if you can picture that the shuttle Stack you've got flames shooting Outta the right solid rocket booster. What's happening is the flame is shooting at the fuel tank? And it's burning through the fuel tank. Insulation nation down to where there's an enormous amount of combustible liquid oxygen. I think fuel and At sixty four seconds. This is the point where the flame has burned through. It's been coming out of that. As it is now is now burned through the tank. It is going to ignite the liquid oxygen in one giant. Burst they pass. They have passed through. Maximum dynamic namic pressure of the vehicle. Which is why you get the call from Dick's Koby who was the commander of Challenger saying go at throttle up which people are like? Oh no they raised the throttle. And that's what AH caused the explosion. And that's not it. They they had throttled up already after going through Max q but that happened to be the moment where this happened. So it's burning through the right S. RB separates at seventy two seconds so just a little bit later it separates from the bottom some of the stack. So now it's starting to come apart And then it seventy three seconds is when the fuel tank ruptures the hits it everything ignites the shuttle is engulfed in the giant fireball It's just an enormous exposure explosion. Could all of that fuel that's supposed to take the shuttle to orbit is igniting at once and The shuttle begins to break apart. And they're at about forty eight thousand feet. When this happens I put in the show notes the footage from CNN from from their coverage of the day and you can see in their footage the S. RB's pulling away from the fireball? Like you said those don't have throttles. They don't have on off switches once. They're let their let they were still burning still flying and they will remotely destroyed by the Range Safety Officer from what I've read. They basically were burning out. That happens so there's not a big secondary explosion as those things are. Are you know blown blown apart effectively. But when you're launching a missile or a rocket or whatever there's a range safety officer and what they do is they rigged these things with explosives so that they can be destroyed remotely motely if there is if you don't you don't want to the rocket to go out of control and then like smash into where people are something like that. So the range safety officers got the got the button. That's basically like I'm going to blow these things up so they don't hurt anybody and that that happens and you can actually see that happening with the swirling around and then they kind of break And fall apart because the the range safety officer has has killed them. They're inside the shuttle. There was a the crew compartment. It was a two level compartment and it was a a hardened robust section of the shuttle. It's not a capsule right. It's not like the Orion capsule but it is a reinforced enforced area. That that they were all within during launch that came basically out of the shuttle more or less intact. It peaked at a height of about sixty five thousand feet. Because there's all there's momentum here of all this Now debris still traveling upward and down range and it remained intact as the orbiter broke apart. Basically around it and there is evidence that at least three of the crew were perhaps at least briefly conscious. After the break-up three of the four egress air packs that they carried were activated and the air supply that was used was consistent with the consumption during their post. Breakup break-up trajectory from the time the orbiter broke up until it hit the ocean. That much air was gone from these three packs. Additionally several control switches on on Mike Smith's panel he was the pilot had been moved from their launch positions and these switches. Don't move on their own. They are like locked into place with these trigger. Covers impact with the ocean cannot have changed them. So there's a lot of evidence that at least for some amount of time they were. They were awake now. It's unknown how long that that happened. Sixty five thousand feet. There's not enough air remain conscious. So this thing was not airtight then they they would have blacked out before. Then but It is it is horrifyingly possible that they were aware of what's going on the hit the ocean at some two hundred seven miles an hour with deceleration impact of well over two hundred g which is the cause of death. Yeah and this is the thing. It's nobody really knows about. Whether they were conscious. They were conscious at least some of them. Initially but whether they remain conscious until impact impact or whether they passed out but it. It's one of the most horrifying things that we discovered long after the fact because this wasn't known and then it was not communicated by NASA because they did not want people thinking about this. We all assume that the explosion killed the astronauts and the truth is the astronauts probably survived the explosion and and it was the crew compartment hitting the ocean that killed them which brings up all of those issues about crew escape. We talked about commercial crew. The the important commercial crew having crew escape earlier. This is one of the things about the shuttle designs. The shuttle wasn't designed with crew escape system. There was nothing they could have done once the vehicle broke up for them to have touched down safely. And this was one of the conversations that everybody had about the shuttle design afterward and it's really one of the reasons. The shuttle was decommissioned. There are there are lots lots of them but one of them is. There was really no way to refit the shuttle to truly make it something where the crew could escape from there. Were they put in some things. Where like if if there was if the shuttle was intact but it was going to crash they could I think they could get out and parachute out of the shuttle or something but it was like not really likely and didn't uncover very many scenarios? The truth is this was not ever built into the design that the shuttle would somehow be broken apart and that the astronauts shots would be able to escape in some way and that was just there was nothing they could do once that happened debris recovery investigation took place. Ace immediately This crew cab was found on March seventh with the remains of the astronauts inside. The right SRB was also located complete with this whole burned through the sidewall confirming what you know all we just spoke about And this is where the Rogers Commission comes in so the president's will commission was charged with investigating the accident. It is was put together by people outside of NASA right. He don't want NASA management in investigating NASA management in these situations. I was named after church. Chairman William Rogers. This guy's resumes really impressive. He was attorney general from fifty seven to sixty one secretary of state a few years later and he was put in charge of this. This commission that they their rich was really wide. They not only spoke to lots of people at NASA anti call but all this debris was hauled ashore and was laid out in a way to help reconstruct what had happened. Yep this was all overseen by by this group and this was a process that it took quite a while. This is not something you wrap up in six weeks right. This is a lengthy process. So I meant I mentioned that that TV movie and there's books books about this to like this. This is one of the things you talked about. Rogers Rogers as a political figure and he's appointed to be independent from NASA. But there's there's also this feeling with a lot of these appointments. It's political figures and military figures that the Reagan administration wants this Salt upped but it also you get the sense very strongly from the reports from the period and the TV movie definitely tells the story that the kind of want to sweep it all under the rug and sort of minimize the damage from this and move along with NASA going full force forward with the space shuttle program and what ends of happening is a few people on the committee most notably Feinman who had to be talked into Going and he had already been diagnosed with cancer and and he gets there and realizes that this is not really what he thought it was in terms of trying to find the truth but and as has come out over the years since then he did actually have like minded people he was a foil he got to be the front man but other people including sally ride aid who was the astronaut Representative on the panel. She turns out after she died. It was revealed had passed a lot of information on from inside NASA that would otherwise have been suppressed and finding got that and there is a air force. General named Donald Katina who Bruce Greenwood plays in the movie who also so was deeply skeptical about what was going on. And aided in this end feinman famously. did a Demo uh-huh during a televised presentation of freezing rain and ice water and then snapping it and it was very much kind of like the Jig was up and the people who are trying to minimize this and make sure that the all of the contractors could walk away and that they would just kind of keep on going Feinman and a bunch of other people who helped find men kind of brought it up in front of the press to a point where they They couldn't deny it any more and that that was that was that turning point and I'm sure it was more complex than this because nothing is ever that simple but like that was a big part of this turn to realizing Nasr's culture was broken. This this happened because of NASA's culture and its relationship with the contractors and that the whole thing needed to be revisited. Yeah that example of the rings I don't think can be overstated overstated in its importance because it was such a clear example to the public she said it was on television. Like anybody could understand that right because we've all all we all understand what happens like rubber material when it gets cold and is doing a very simple demonstration really showed people what what you know what the heart of this was and you know how many people are watching these sorts of things on TV. That really get it right but this ends up on the evening news right this exam. AM settling still talking about thirty four years later. Yeah and this is the you knew this was going to happen. There's a whole paper trail but like the clear visual of just like if I put this Washer in ice water and then and then try to bend it it falls apart and this is what happened to the space shuttle and that is it. It was a big deal and it it it did lead to a change. than next major shuttle accident was not for fourteen years. I think It it was a while and then there that's a whole other story about like backsliding and changes in culture but you know they redesigned the RB's there was a third party overseeing we're seeing a oversight board to make sure that these contractors in that NASA didn't cut corners and kind of fall back on their old ways they created a new office of safety reliability and Quality Assurance at NASA and the idea. There is that they reported to the NASA administrator. They weren't part of some other group. That you know that trickle it it all trickles down to the people who could be leaned on and told come on. We need to do this. It was only. They only responded to what the administrator wanted and the president. Reagan announced that they would build a new Orbiter to replace Challenger and that that is the endeavor and so so they got the endeavor going and never had I forget all the details of it and that would be a fun topic for another podcast at some point but endeavor was constructed partially out of backup parts but also it had So they you know. They didn't plan on building another space shuttle but they with endeavor they had some backup parts and they were able to construct it and it ended up being the most advanced until he did some of the refits. On like Atlantis. It was the most advanced shuttle they were able to make changes to that shuttle since they were building a whole fifth orbiter and the big thing and we talked about this in our episode about the space shuttle way back when is the change the schedule and the launch schedule became much more slow and this is really an example where.

"Wheel Drive v eight powered Challenger and charger or you know even a new Kuta. That's all wheel drive with you. Know the turbo inline. Six that's rumored to becoming out and replacing the five point seven Hemi. But I digress the next Challenger I would seriously consider would have to be the RT with a five point seven Hemi the Challenger. R T is a car that fits the a bill for me. There's plenty of options to choose from. Of course it's got the Hemi basically everything I want in a modern challenger but again there is a problem bloom this time. It's not that it's not a V.. Eight this time. It's because I know that there's a bigger V8. I know that a three ninety two powered Howard Challenger. That's the six point four liter. Hemi isn't too far off price. Wise from a five point. Seven Hemi equipped one and I've driven a challenger with the six point four three ninety-two heavy and it was more than enough power and tons of fun so I think that would justify me. Not being able to get the supercharged hell cat or above if I just had the maximum amount of power offered by dodge in the normally aspirated configuration. I know deep down that I wouldn't regret buying a three ninety-two Challenger so that's the one I mean I could go back to an early S. RTA Challenger that has a six point one Hemi and save a few bucks but again knowing that three ninety two is available and far more obtainable for me than a hell cat. or or you know any of those upper-echelon challengers why not get the best of what I am willing to spend. I think I would get that in a six point four Hemi power challenger. So that's it. My mind is set but it's not quite that simple. See there are still some questions Russians. I need to ask myself. Do I need to go a few years back and pay less for a used three ninety two challenger that maybe has the older body style and you know the older ones have like fifteen less horsepower. Or do I forgot the extra bucks and get the latest model. You know thinking about all these different options not only with the entire field of choices from two thousand eight until today in twenty twenty but also you know the different options. I get packages but I think I have my mind made up. I'm pretty sure that the Challenger that checks all of my boxes is it's gotta be the two thousand Nineteen Plus Challenger. RT Scott Pack wide-body. It has all the power I need and it's got all all the looks that I want. My second choice would have to be the scat pack. Thirteen twenty it's called the thirteen twenty because that's how many feet are in the quarter Mile Mile and that's what the thirteen twenty was built for. These thirteen twenties are built specifically for the enthusiast. Who Frequents Equi- The drag strip now? I don't frequent the drag strip but if I had thirteen twenty it might give me more reason to make the trek over to the track. The thirteen twenty is a demon short of a demon. No super charger. No Wide Body. But a bunch of the drags Pacific Tech that the demon and has which is awesome. But my Dr is the car that I really want to be my track car the car that I take to the drag strip and if I have to drag strip cars I don't want to have to deal with those life choices you know. I WANNA have a dedicated car that that's the car take to the track. And that's my goal for my dark so I don't think that the thirteen twenty is the right car for me but that being said it is definitely second place on my roster for a new challenger that I WANNA get. I just want to challenge her to help. liven up my commute to and from work and something fun to cruise cruise and I really do think that the Challenger R T Scott Pack wide-body is the Challenger most capable of doing all those things and hey by the time I turned forty. I'm sure I can find a well-cared-for pre-owned one because it's going to be twenty twenty five by the time. I actually buy one and Bara while I considered whether or not I really even wanted a wide body but after seeing one out in the wild I now know that I have to get one of those would I be okay with the regular scat pack. That wasn't a wide body of course but if I was satellite in a Chunky wide-body rolled up on me. I'd probably get a little jelly so to ensure that I never have those feelings. I better just get everything I want in the challenger that I ended up buying. Now what happens when a supercharged challenger rolls up on me like any of the hell cats are demon. My only hope hope is that I can pull whole shot and take the next turn and get off that street. That's my only hope. But let's be honest. If you really want a forced induction powered challenger you can always supercharge a Scott Pack. I drove a three ninety two and I can absolutely tell you that. Even though the supercharged semi's are absolutely ferocious. I don't actually need one. That all said if if I can score a wide body fat in five years for a good deal then we get in boosted baby. But that's all there is to it so there you go. I want want a wide body. Three Ninety two SCAP pack and as far as colors go I'm partial to green. I like efate green I I I liked the sublime green. I think that's cool and you know I guess we'll see in five years you know unless some crazy things happen before then it's going to be about five five years before I get my scalp pack and hopefully by then the wide bodies will come down in price and I can find a clean used one. That hasn't been beat too hard. We'll see in five years. Here's something I want to put out there under the mope our world if you own a modern mo par but we're not necessarily a MO- par enthusiasts before are you owned one. I want to hear about your experience. And what about Mo parse pulled UN. And now that you're in. How has your experience been so if you have any modern earn mopus stories? Send them to me Chris at talking low parks dot com before we shut this podcast down and highly N. -ticipant number eleven the third episode of Twenty Twenty. I want to say that. I've read a lot of posts on social media criticizing the modern challenger and saying that it's just not as cool as the original or to not really a Mo- par Yada Yada Yada. I would never ever feel comfortable calling myself. Mo- pont WHO's if I share those same feelings the original charger. The original Challenger is awesome and the new one although cool can never take away that cool nostalgia of nineteen seventy but that doesn't make the old one any less awesome or the new one on any more awesome. They simply share a bloodline and even in their many differences. You can still see their undeniable similarities. I M happy appear that dodge brought the challenge back in two thousand eight so I will not complain about it. And since it's returned I've noticed that the modern Mo- pars have grabbed the attention of the younger generations. Now which will only fuel the moped enthusiasts community and encourage. Its growth. The only thing I would criticize about modern mopeds cars as far as charges in challengers in any modern mobile for that matter. Is the attendance of the car shows. This is something that bothers me a little bit now. I think good turnouts at car. Shows are great but I would be lying if I said that. It doesn't bother me just the little bit. When people show their stock unmodified modern MOPE ours at a car show? My philosophy is always been if I can go to a dealership and see a your exact car where there's no difference in I can't. I can't even tell him apart. In my opinion you may not be ready to register your car. As a contestant in a car show I would rather see an unfinished project car beater rot box towed to the show on a trailer trailer than a stock. Anything you know. As far as modern MO- parts go. If I can go to a dealership and buy that car I don't WanNa see that at the show because I can go to a dealership to see that you know especially if it stock are they cool. Sure but are they show worthy material. You know that's super debatable. But I know it sounds like I'm throwing a ton of shade modern Mo- pars but this is just my opinion and it's not that I'm throwing shade because I would never or purposefully tried to make anyone ever feel bad about their car. It's just not something I would do. But Hey if that's you you do you. If you you take a stock Mo- partout car show stock new remote par to a car show. You know that's that's you you do you but the most important the thing is that you are a moped enthusiast which I respect and let's be honest it's pretty hard to keep anymo- par one hundred percent stock so yours probably won't stay stock CHR along you know I can't hold it against you too much but I do encourage you to start modifying that thing and really kick your mopey Azam into high gear..

"The year? It was two thousand. Eight and rumors had been circulating about a new challenger since the concept car was officially revealed in two thousand. Six being a fan of Mo- pars my whole life and being genuinely disappointed that the return of the charger brought us Is a four door sedan. The News of Avenue Challenger returning to Dodge's lineup was game changing for me. Now I do want to say that. I do like the charger but I really hoped hoped for a two door muscle car from dodge so when the charter came back as a four door it was cool having a charger but there was just something about the four. Order that bummed me out that it wasn't a two door you know when I think of dodge charger I think of the coke bottle shape iconic shape of a charger. Roger and adding two more doors to that design really threw me off. But that's okay thankfully dodge was listening to the enthusiasts and I and they green lit a new challenger when I finally saw this car It was still a concept and it was on the cover of a couple of different car magazines and I knew that someday I would have to get my hands on one. The modernized Challenger was absolute perfection. To Me and while technically weekly very different from its legendary predecessor. There was no denying that this car was true to the design of the original but updated for the modern era. It absolutely carried the essence of the seventy challenger Brome which was inspired and I've wanted modern challenger. Ever since but I I always find myself buying more practical vehicles for daily driving. As of late in the last couple of years I finally decided that unless run across an unbelievable deal on a classic Mo par on another one. Because I already have to my next car you know. Technically I just said I have to who classic Mope Ours but technically if you count all the eighties Mo- pars that my dad and I have it's much more than that but we'll just go for two for now so unless I come across a crazy deal another classic mo par. My next car is definitely GONNA be a newer challenger. The only question I ask myself is which which one do I want. So there's plenty of options from two thousand eight all the way to now in two thousand twenty. There is all sorts of different package cars that you can get from dodge you can get Essy's Essex tease SR RT eight TS. Hell cats hell cat. Red Is scrap packs. Demons are teas. There's just so how many different challenges to choose from and I WANNA make sure that the one that I buy is one that I wanNA keep a long time you know. I don't WanNa get something thing and then think to myself all I could have gotten this one if I just waited so what I've done is I've told myself that in five years. I'm thirty five now when I turned forty. I'M GONNA buy myself a birthday present. And that birthday present is going to be a modern challenger. Now ideally daily it would be the eight hundred forty horsepower. Daemon but I mean I can't possibly ignore the fact that it is the fastest production car on earth but with prices in the six figure range. It is realistically out of my reach. It's the baddest modern dodge to ever roll off the assembly line. And I can't pretend that I wouldn't absolutely love to own one but it's just too rich for my blood that's all there is to it at least now unless I run across a seeds for money trees that I guess I'll have to settle for something a little bit lesser than Demon and. That's okay my runner up to the demon is the new health at Redeye. While not quite as fast as the demon it is still very cool in its own right. And that's even if it only the house. Seven hundred and ninety seven horsepower comparatively to the demons eight hundred forty. But I love the hood scoops on the Hell Cat red is they really remind me of a modern version of the old twin hood. Scoops bound on classic mope our muscle cars so like the the coronets supervie's and you know the Dart swingers and the original demons. You know those twin hood scoops. I think that the hell cat read I really is. Is the hood on the healthcare. Red Eye is the perfect. Modern iteration of those classic Twin Hood Scoops so I think that's very cool just to sidetrack back for a second. How about them wide bodies offered on the new challenges chargers? Wow I know that not. Everyone is a fan but I think they are are pretty Rad and when I saw the demon come out and it had the wide-body on it I was like. Oh you know 'cause a few years ago acquired a few years ago now there's is a company called Liberty Walk and they created. I believe they were the first wide body kit for the challenges. Now in my opinion it looked a little Godley. Now I guess it depends on the color and the setup of the car but I was like ads just a little bit too much for me but when I saw the wide-body the on the demon I was like okay. So it's more like flared fenders and it just made a Chunky car even chunkier so I really liked the new factory wide-body cars so when Dodge announced that the SCAP we're GonNa get him and you could get him on hell hell cats and even the chargers you can get wide bodies. I was really excited so I know it's not everybody's favourite look but I like wide bodies I can't help it. They seem to just add the right amount of Chunky nece to a car that already has a massive presence on the road and I like having wide bodies as an option but back to the hill cat red eye unfortunately with an MS RPM of basically we you know seventy grand it also is out of reach Romy financially that brings me to the hell cat with with seven hundred. Seven horsepower. Got More power than I would ever need in the daily driver. But could I justify the added costs of owning hell cat challenger which is a challenger in the upper echelon of challengers the added costs for me would be insurance fuel and the cost of new tires. I mentioned those added costs. Because let's face it with a hell cap or any challenger in that upper echelon of force-fed challengers the high probability probability of me amassing a collection of speeding tickets. Always having my right foot to the wood and the constant tire shredding that would most likely we occur. I can't deny that they're most likely guaranteed expenses. That's not to say that those costs wouldn't occur in any challenge or less than a hell cat but the addition of super charger makes the odds much greater so with those theoretical costs. Aside the hell cat still remains out of my price range unless I look at like used ones. But I'm open to that. But when hell cats are purchased used. I'd imagine that a majority of them have most likely already had the piss beaten out of and I'd really WanNa be the first to break in my Challenger it's like You know I don't want a sandwich that somebody has already touched or you know taking a bite out of you know. I want my own. But if I can't have a supercharged six point two liter Hemi under the hood because of financial reasons I really have to consider what the purpose of Vanu Challenger would actually be for me. Why do I even want one? Well because I think they look awesome and once they came out back in two thousand eight and and I still don't have one so how much I want to spend is another question. I have to ask myself. And ideally anything less than the hell cat price but you know you can get a hell cat used. You know it's got. They have some miles on them. But you can get them for around forty to mid forties forties. I would like to spend less than that. You know unless I'm buying a brand new car. Then that's understandable but I doubt I'll even be able to afford that in five years mostly because you know as well as I do soon as you buy a brand new cars in as you drive it off the lot bump bump on you lose some Value in it you know. It's the depreciation off the lot. That would kill me but how much can actually afford is another story and right now. Well I'm not buying a challenger right now or anytime soon released so these are just things that I'm considering when thinking talking about my eventual purchase and the amount of time between now and five years from now that amount of time really opens the door to more possibilities but I'm still debating on what Challenger I WOULD WANNA buy. There are a a few options under the hell cat. That would most likely be more practical for my situation. And that hurts me to say because you shouldn't have to think about practicality practicality when buying a muscle car but it's something that I need to consider so being open minded I should consider the lowest challenger in the hierarchy Arche of challengers the V six model. Now I actually had the opportunity to spend a little over a week in a new challenger. Essex T. when my current daily driver however a two thousand twelve Ram fifteen hundred was in the body shop getting repaired after I was rear ended while definitely not the fastest car I've ever driven the S X T was definitely fun to drive. I don't feel like they are underpowered. With the V six at all but one unthought kept coming across my mind fun the Challenger would probably be a lot funner with more the big selling point for me on a V6 power challenger is that they're extremely affordable even a brand new V six model is well within my ideal. He'll price range but there's just one problem. I know that I will regret not getting a challenger with a Hemi that's not to say that a V6 challenger isn't the right car for you. You may not need or want more power than the visa provides. I just know that for me personally. The V6 wouldn't wouldn't suffice in the long run. I know that I would eventually think to myself. God I just got a Hemi so if I buy New Challenger I plan on keeping it forever therefore I need to make sure that when I buy one. It's the right one. It's the perfect one. Still a lot to consider. Now there's also the challenger Gt which was introduced in twenty seventeen and it's the world's first all wheel drive two door muscle car a very cool car and very good choice for someone concerned about traction in less than ideal road conditions due to weather so I would almost I vote for the Challenger. Gt to be the best option out of all the challenges because you can essentially enjoy it year round but there is one problem again. The lack of a V eight option still the Challenger. Gt may be perfect for you. But it's not quite what I'm looking for. I hope Dodge Raj. Here's the enthusiasts communities request for an all.

"Do so it was like personally disliked by so many republican figures that it is impossible to coalesce around him but by the same token like you don't just have have one super trump challenger right now you already have to declared challengers. You know sanford could get in <hes>. There's you know like a mosh isn't saying saying no which means people are going to continue to pressure to get in there continues to be noise that like the boasts effective people to challenge donald trump would be charlie baker or larry hogan yeah republican governors that we mentioned like the idea that the ideal anti-trump candidate is out. There is always going to stop or at least okay. I won't predict the future but has for like literally you know four years at this point stopped anti-trump republicans from coalescing around a single actually existing existing challenger to donald trump and so it makes it much harder to imagine you're going to have a challenge to trump's dominance in the republican party because it's not trump versus x. challenger. It's trump versus a field of nobody's yes. It's interesting because i think there is an idea that some folks in conservative media have have that because trump does a thing and that thing polls while with republican voters the thing itself is popular where whereas i don't think that's entirely early true and i think one of the challenges that's going to be had is that trump's version of republicanism is far more popular than other other people's version of republicanism. I mean there's a reason why i mean there are many reasons but there's a reason why ted cruz is not president. There's a reason why the entire idea of like let's break up. Big tech is no longer just an idea that elizabeth warren is having and there's an idea it look. I think one of the things that trump has done very effectively is subvert vert the idea that professional conservatives and people who vote thinking they're conservatives. Were all on the same page where were definitively now anything concrete terms. I mean this is why i thought this idea that republican voters are concerned about fiscal profligacy is wrong. This was the big thing in terms of issues shoe substance with trump the it doesn't get a lot of attention was on spectacular as immigration stuff and other things but like he just abandoned abandoned the conservative position on social security and medicare right completely abandoned it in favor of a different loudly abandoned. It wasn't a like a thing he just it doesn't talk about like a lot of the tariff stuff. I think wasn't as prominent during the republican primary but you know anyone who was following his rhetoric closely could tell he was like on the debate stage defending himself against other republican candidate was saying no no no this is important and it was a move to the middle right. It was the equivalent of if a democratic candidate got got up there and was like we've got it cool it with this extreme pro-choice stuff you know what i mean like and there was a backlash from the conservative movement end against it ready turned out that like not only was trump's position and social security medicare more popular with the general electorate was also more popular with rank can file republicans and if you go if you find the conservative wong's they'll tell you look. We didn't like come up with the idea that you need to cut these programs just because we were bored one after they're gonna show you all these graphs about spending trends and debt but right now interest rates on federal debt like today day cratered again from what we're already historic lows so there's no objective pressure on this. I i don't know how long that will hold hold up right but the the idea that there's going to be just like a mass uprising where people start demanding cuts popular programs for no reason yeah like that's that's not going to happen but there really could be i don. I don't wanna get too deep into like weird macroeconomic forecasting but like this situation can change to create circumstances in which like that really is pressure to cut these programs and then you know who knows that's right like trump is not <hes> doing a lot of like.

"I would say a really dumb way to forecast the future is to just assume that the conditions that prevailed today will will prevail in the future but if it happened right like it is no change in the environment between now and november twenty twenty it seems like trump would lose is the election and would lose it relatively narrowly but would lose it under weird circumstances to lose reelection fight where like the economy's pretty good. The unemployment rate's low. There's no huge farm policy disasters and that would really argue in favor of a demus post-trump reform right which is to say like take a lot of the ideas that we've been working with but just try to like have shit together better and then we could have won and maybe ease up on the trade stuff because that's controversial among republicans right the other scenario is one in which trump whether it's because something bad happens next year or because something bad happens in a trump second term but is where you have circumstances similar to wear bush left the stage which is like with the country in in a state of crisis and doing really poorly in the election and people are like oh. We need like a whole new direction or then. There's the reagan model all we're actually able to hand off to a successor while you were still popular and powerful and it's just like the the future is uncertain certain and we don't really know it's interesting to me. Is jane league. You mentioned josh halley regarding. He's an interesting guy because he seems to have really joined joined. What is the most divisive like intellectual topic among present day conservatives which is like. Should we trust to the free market or jiangyin. Yes like the steering hand.

"Going to see it that way which i i think it's interesting also because i think there's also a moment in which occasionally when <hes> the the worst twitter fights that happen generally are between liberals and focus on the left on the subject of barack obama and some of this sort of shows up in which people point out like drone strikes on weddings and had like and things that obama did that were not good but there's this idea of like no no no what obama did matters way less than who will obama was or who obama was viewed as being it's interesting how that separation takes place and i see this a lot with not like dedicated trump supporters quarters because there are a lot of people who are trump supporters who are not republican party supporters but for the people who've managed to square that circle. There's very much of a sense of like the what we're getting some of what he wants and he seems to make the people. We don't like mad arrigo. We're just going to deal with this what i will be interested in <hes> and <hes> you. I've talked about this last week on the mark. Levin show is how the post trump g._o._p. Will deal with this time. There's either going to be the josh chali for president two thousand twenty four movement or there's going to be the why don't we just find another george bush. Is he available. What's he up to so yes. This is the thing because because in general the line on primary challenges to incumbent presidents is they don't succeed but the same things that make someone likely to primary and grab it president also make it likely that the pro the the incumbent president is not as likely to win in <hes>. Would you like not. It's not the same as saying. Oh you've disrupted party. Unity in the brief made our guy lose. It's just that like if you see if you smell blood in the water it sells underwater and it's interesting also just to quickly go back. Generally the effort to primary someone from your own party tends to be more effective if view are further towards the ideological whatever whatever that party estimate right so for instance ronald reagan attempted tried to primary gerald ford seventy six pat buchanan launched a primary campaign against george h w bush in nineteen ninety-two with further record is an instructive comparison here not like not because buchanan is similar to bill weld analogy quite to the contrary but because bill wells political theories that he's going to overperform in new hampshire would yes if you overperform a primary challenger in new hampshire that does tend to lend a certain amount of if not credibility to your candidacy attention to the weakness of the incumbent but the model for overperforming in new hampshire is pat buchanan primary george h w bush which is to say a populist primary aim right exonerate new england republican roy. I'm not totally sure how bill weld things that math lays out in his favor it it. It seemed unclear. He seemed to be very much on the argument meant that i have not in the in new england do not meet many trump supporters erico but you know the the buchanan thing the certainly in nineteen sixty eight which is like the a paramedic example because lyndon johnson did ultimately not seek reelection yes so the primary insurgent challenges. His candidacy really did have an aim amen resting the democratic party away from you know commitment to vietnam. Do i can understand the logic of a primary challenger of i'm not going to win but in case the incumbent loses and i think he might lose lose. I now have a platform to say. Here's what i think. The party ought to be and when i think of that i think of ted cruz at the two thousand sixteen republican national convention right. What are your conscience amazingly forgotten moment because ted cruz then you became a very enthusiastic trump supporter in time for election day but as lean as the convention invention ted cruz didata doors donald trump and instead give this like very saying vote your conscience right will scream at him and he looked bafflingly happy right. That might be the last true. It's not this right. I think so much what happens after trump is going to hinge on like like what are the circumstances under which trump leaves office right yes..

"You have have to parse that out as this is trump. Speaking out against coastal elites of which trump is one but there's a very much of a sense in which your objections or liking for trump have very little. I think for you for a lot of people they have little to do with what what trump does but just more so about who trump is and i think that there's a sense that your mom stands for the concept of trump. I didn't think there's there's also like very relevant. Divide here. Which is that people who are professionally involved in politics are by definition high information voters. A lot of people do not know what donald trump is tweeting on a daily basis like fox news while it covers some of trump's self-generated off generated news cycles tends to not cover. His random fights with lake. You know they'll cover fights with ilan omar because omar is a significant nick like cultural figure in other regards lightning rod for other culture war issues. They won't cover random celebrity fights with debra messing so a lot of the ability that trump has has to step on his own news cycles matters a whole lot. If you're already high information voter in your collected body of information and going okay a we have a lot of evidence events that someone other than donald trump could be doing a better job of highlighting republican policies and it like accomplishments and proposals and be we have a collective elected body of evidence that donald trump is not a reliable person to have in the commander in chief seat that he's like a poor decision maker. What i think is really under appreciated. Is that if you unders. If you appreciate donald trump because of what he stands for you probably already kind of priced in yeah he and a tweet some things that i don't particularly really think are important but you've already written that off. You're not following. The day-to-day of right here is what donald trump is doing today and you're not exhausted by in the same way that a lot of people who follow politics on a day to day are but i think it's almost like more pathological than that because it's not liking donald trump because of what he stands for it's it's donald trump because of what his presence in office symbolize swag which is not like trump's victory over hillary clinton but your victory victory over you know some sense of the elites right and i i don't know i i think i've been canceled for offering this analogy in the past asked but trump reminds me a lot of a figure lake marion barry or james an archetype that we're familiar millier with from african american politics which is the big city mayor who it becomes clear is in fact not that effective and and is somewhat corrupt ethically challenged but who is seen as the authentic champion of the city's majority and whose enemies are seen as culturally alien and criticism of the leader is seen as hypocritical because the you know in this case like white elites don't hold themselves to this same standard <hes> that they are trying to put your champion to that he's kind of getting over on the system in a way that so shows that he shrewd he's like mentally the fact that he is in high elected office does not change the fact that his constituents silence are fundamentally victims and therefore criticism of him is punching down like i think is very like very obviously has different print empirical levels of truth when we're talking about marion berry in d._c..

"We'll see their what's interesting about this interview. The paradigm dare aarp put forward. Is that like or no rothman even like it's true that a lot of rank and file republicans seem to be really into the donald trump persona sown right but the critique of trump that i think would incredibly resonate inside official republican party politics is like just the <unk> opposite of that right that broadly you would continue with trump's policy approach and even concede that trump has made some smart choices about recalibrating what the republican party's images but that donald trump personally is just not a good choice of leader leader right that like he has a forty two percent approval rating. He keeps stepping on new cycles with like weird controversies. That aren't about anything when hits on an idea that republicans generally think is smart like let's try to make ilhan omar the face of the party. He doesn't do it in a super smart art way. He's not really shrewd. He's not really a well organized right and we should just put somebody else in to do the job bright. The problem is like that idea has no clue resonance with normal people for for whom the dispute about trump is itself a kind of identity politics toke yeah right. We're you know if you you are a sort of a professional republican. The fact that trump up seems to be down five to ten points or approval rating from where a more appropriately conducted person would be really worries. You 'cause you wanna win elections and hold power but to a lot of rank and file people all who feel that american pop culture has sort of neglected <hes> like working class white people and in traditionalist values like the fact that trump is such a lightning rod is it's not exactly that it's like good but like taking trump's side of the argument about trump is i think clearly seen to people as a way of standing up for themselves mm cell right right and it is itself a identity marker of a sense so if trump is tweeting means things about debra messing..

"Want you to believe that he says that it was the meeting between trump and putin helsinki that changed his mind but i don't know when he stopped thinking that stevie wonder was ungrateful for taking a symbolic knee at a concert in two thousand seventeen or saying that i object to protests over something that doesn't exist police killing black men in september twenty eighth twenty sixteen. It was not many moons ago. It was like a couple of moons ago his entire thing he told george stephanopoulos at the beauty of what president trump has drawn is that he's made me reflect fled and some of the things i've had in the past i had strong policy disagreements with barack obama and too often. I've let those policy disagreements get personal. <hes> you know now that really depends on your definition of the term policy disagreement but joe walsh's theory of change appears to be. I am a former trump est. I seeking some sort of reconciliation with the people i've wrong. It's it's as if he's very early stages of an a._a. Meeting right so what you simultaneously have is per matt joe walsh being a more representative republican in terms of what the current republican party believes and joe walsh running a less ideological campaign the campaign that appears to be focused on the unfitness of donald trump as an individual for office which is like if you can make that case successfully then sure it's easy to understand why republican voters might not have a problem you know pulling the lever for somebody who they don't think collages their fundamental ideas about what it is to be human being but if joe walsh is also saying well because i've now gotten critical distance from donald donald trump. I'm thinking that maybe all of this other stuff. I said on you the signature issues that donald trump road to power where the republican party. He is now thoroughly behind him. I'm now saying that those are bad too. That's a much bigger distance. The struggle that i have thinking about both of these guys or for that matter her the candidates who have kind of hinted at running mark sanford former south carolina congressman who trump deposed somewhat gleefully via stumping for his primary challenger the last year or for that matter doesn't amash who may be running for the libertarian or republican presidential nominations after declared himself an independent like in terms of any of their individual critiques trump. It's very hard to distinguish where they're saying that. The party is fine but trump is bad which the party is doesn't it doesn't agree with the party ranks. Trump is good and where they're saying that the party needs to go another direction which is traditionally what you do in primary but also as a somewhat higher bar to clear to get people to vote for you in particular and i think that all of this <hes> noah rothman who's a conservative writer at commentary wrote a piece for n._b._c. News <hes> think section action which can opinion and analysis section where you made the point that though trump is popular a lot of the things trump does are less popular with republican voters so there's kind of like if you if you ask people would you think about donald trump. The result will be different than what you think about the trade war. What do you think about these specific. The civic aspects that if you take the words donald trump out of it the argument is that republicans are still concerned about debt. There just less concerned about debt because donald trump is involved or they still support free trade. They just also support trump so the idea. I think that rothman or is is is that the cognitive dissonance that typifies a party that supports trump but still fears the consequences of america's addiction to fiscal profligacy is hard to overlook look and this contradiction is a smart fisher for republican primary challenge to exploit. I think though that that you are giving the world famous dubious madder ugliest sense where the importance of the deficit or the importance of trade. I think that there is very much of a sense people who are supportive of trump one thinking like he's done enough on those things and all those things aren't his fault or his fighting or whatever but also how much two people actually care about those things when i spoke to with wild who was like monies are very concerned about the deficit.

"A wing of the party if not a particularly powerful right right but i mean it was just to say that like bill bill weld has been a a at least somewhat dissident republican right through his entire career in public life. He's publicly pro choice how he is placed within the twenty nineteen version of the converter. Even the two thousand sixteen version twelve version of the republican party is interesting interesting when mitt romney was running for president briefly in two thousand eight bill weld was chair of his committee in new york but then when romney dropped out weld ultimately absolutely endorsed obama for lots of reasons. He is not in fact a normal republican. There are people who are much closer to the republican party mainstream who is still mulling pre primary challenges to trump the fact that weld was literally running in a third party like running under a third party banner in two thousand sixteen even though he was loath to to give up his republican credentials even at that point would be a reason for you know a primary voter perhaps to be skeptical of him and some of the same ways that lake to knock on bernie sanders that he isn't a real real democrat and at the same time that he's telling you as a normal republican he's telling other reporters that he's running against partisanship and the current state of partisan politics which is a very odd awed position to be in when you're running in a primary that definition really isn't something to build bridges to people who are outside putty into mentally right like weld hearkens back not to a pre trump version of the republican party but really to appre george w you bush freshman republican party that had a bigger constituency of secular ish or mainline protestant right <hes> business people living in coastal and silly exist chamber of commerce. They are there but i mean it's not not. It's not that there aren't vengeful. Christians in the chamber of commerce probably not in the chamber of commerce in boston right now and that's bill. Weld's thing and so it doesn't i. It's interesting because it's this has been one of the most robust political traditions in america like massachusetts currently has a moderate republican governor. It's not actually dying off but it has no. It's been a long time. It's been back to the nineteen. Eighty primary was the last time this style of politics had like a real purchase in the presidency and there's so much about trump. It's like we're. It's not like donald. Trump is conservative on social issues right. It's like he's also like you know owns this network of golf courses and and tweets weird stuff yeah so and joe joe walsh is closer to what i think of as the median modern day republican party politicians so the thing with with joe walsh is he was a one term illinois congressman who was elected as part of the tea party wave in two thousand ten but in the nineteen nineties he was like when he was running for congressional and statewide office he was running as a pro choice person and then he was a prolife person with no exceptions wins and then he became the most trumpian of trumpy voices which apparently for him necessitated using incredibly racist and antisemitic invective and spending a great deal of time supporting failed white nationalists attempted paul ryan challenger paul nalen <hes> including having him on his radio show two days after unite the right in charlottesville but walsh's entire thing now is like you know i helped create donald trump and i regret this and here's what i've learned now again. Joe walsh has pivoted enough times that i am grow increasingly suspicious of his most recent pivot and it was interesting because i think that when you go back he seems to want.
