"Marketing director Melanie coburn reminded everyone a congressional committee is looking into the league's handling of sex harassment charges and cobra and says she and Ember are willing to testify We're both willing to be there for our hearing if they decide to set a date The league says the sensitive nature of the charges are keeping the report private but the former employees say names can be rejected and privacy protected particularly Ono TOP news Also here at home after two kids were killed while crossing D.C. streets this year the city is beefy enough traffic enforcement around the schools Mayor muriel Bowser says the decision to expand vision zero to focus on school zones is necessary We all have to recognize that we have a responsibility when it comes to making our streets safer Chief Robert Conti says D.C. police officers will enforce 7 school zones that will change regularly Three hours before students arrive during two hours of class and three hours after dismissal Officers will focus on distracted driving speeding stop sign violations and pedestrian violations within these areas We want it safer for kids to cross the street to get to school but that does mean that there will be increased interactions with the police Meghan clarity WTO P news That's the holiday shopping season gets into full swing Lots of shoppers are taking advantage of the cyber world the IRS has an important reminder this morning does well regarding new rules if you do or do not itemize your taxes The TBS business analyst Joel center digs a little deeper for us this morning It's a temporary measure last year and this tax filing year What you need to know is that even if you are someone who takes the standard deduction and never got to write off your charitable contribution previously for just 2020 and 2021 you can take a deduction for cash contributions you make to a qualifying charitable organization the limit is $300 that you give away as a single filer $600 married filing jointly So again if this is for standard filers who never got a tax deduction you'll get it So Uncle Sam is going to encourage you to be charitable this year Also want to remind folks that if you are an itemize or you are used to giving away money and taking that deduction you get expanded limits of your deduction for 2021 Again this is temporary So just know this that there is some there's another reason to give and certainly we hope that people are generous this year Yes indeed some good suggestions Now if you're a senior making charitable donations what do you need to know about the qualified charitable distribution First of all this is the most unsung hero of all of tax rules And the reason is that a lot of people who are fortunate enough to have money that they've saved they've done so more in their retirement accounts than in non retirement accounts And so you used to have the situation where you'd have to take money out of the account you'd pay tax on it then you give it to charity Well qualified charitable distribution allows you to make a grant of up to a $100,000 from your IRA account to an eligible charity Couple of things about this You have to be over age 70 and a half to do it And you have to do it again to the directly to the charity You can't go to a private foundation or donor advised fund And you've got to be very careful about it But the cool thing about it is if you don't need this money and I know a lot of people need it but if you're fortunate enough not to need it this could satisfy your required minimum distribution You can just direct it over to the charity You don't get a deduction for it but you don't have to pay tax on the money that comes out of that IRA account as long as it goes directly to a charity CBS business analysts still send you Lucky there with death and Mark You're must needs a little 3.5 FM and double DTP dot com Sports.

"I was able to get half a half a million dollars allocated from our arpaio funds which is the american ask plan fund which is like of the last covert elite package that we got access to so i was able to allocate five hundred dollars of that to actually direct assistance to individuals who were sleeping impacted by the pandemic. So we got trillion dollars. I wanted to get a lot more dedicated to individuals people who were struggling people that you know that i hear from all the time who are still having a challenging time because of the pandemic but i was able to get five hundred thousand dollars which i think is a good starting point not enough thank you. Yeah yeah so. That's that's one thing that i feel pretty good about that. I think is important in those same conversations. That was part of the group that helps make sure that our That streamline was got their in their entire Budget requests funded so that we could grow and expand our public transit system. You know. I think that it's critical as we think about climate change and how we want to set ourselves up for the future that we invest heavily in public transit And so. I was able to help do that. i Elevated conversations around diversity and inclusion to levels that we've seen before and i think our local politics And really embedded those in some of the policies repass including our brains and effort to consolidate our Advisory board structure so the way that the commission gets information from community. Oftentimes just do these Advisory boards that tells about parking and Climate change and are sort of streets others things we've catholics. Tell us out. So i was able to embed some really basic principles around inclusivity in those policy documents. And i've really continued to make sure that as i'm being a part of any land use decisions that were really centering of affordable housing. So that we're not just talking about nima housing but we're actually. We need more affordable housing people who live here can attain can get in can stay in so those are the things and there's so many more like every time we meet on a tuesday evening. There's like at stacks agenda. Were on all of those things. So there's a lot of other other things. They've been imparted. But those are the ones that come to mind. Let's go back to affordable housing. Yeah because that's definitely a hot hot topic in the. It sucks right now. Yeah why in your opinion. Do you think it's so extreme into saw out of control. Yeah affordable housing is such well just housing in general as the complicated issue for a whole host of reasons and It's definitely a crisis in our community as it is in a lot of meetings. But i think we're experiencing in a different way right now just because we are one of the places in the country that's growing just so rapidly with the fastest growing county in montana. One of the fastest growing in the country. So we're experiencing this like the the housing pressure right now is like very acute for us but There's there's a lot of reasons for that thing you know.

"What exactly does the city commission to not a stupid question. That is a really important. I know the funny thing is that so all of like my friends that are close to me. When told him. I was going to run for the commissioner that i got appointed or that i was you know trying to get appointed. They were all like that so amazing like well we we support you and then like three weeks later but what are you. What do you mean so. The sites have a good friends. I i was kind of taken back like how you guys this is. These are friends for life. Just we'll just blindly more. You don't even know what the job is. You're applying for. Let's just say with me and call. Yes that's so cool. What do you do again like. So what's your why. How what sort of things you were gone so support you so i get this question and i think it's it's important talk about. The city commission for all intensive purposes is the policy making body the body for the city of bozeman so the commission sets the policies the procedures and the processes that sort of the create the way that we all sort of exist or Interact with the city of bozeman. Okay so we're responsible for basically maintaining the operation expanding operations of the city boasts minute self so that includes things like passing resolutions and ordinances that sort of like laws that sort of dictate. What can can't be done within the to bozeman. Obviously the state laws to that. We don't have any control over locally but we get albert local regulations in that way. I'm going to do that. We also oversee and maintain the annual the annual operating budget for the city of bozeman. Which is like over one hundred fifty million dollars so we sort of set that that Operating budget and decide how it sorta spent in what parties exists within that. Wow yeah so it's a lot. There's a lot that the commissioner responsible for this a lot of things that we do that impact the lives of everybody who lives here And so that's why. I think it's critically important that the people on the commission actually understand what the experience is a people who live in bozeman with us. Because you know if you have this major disconnect then you're making these policy decisions. People are left out the experiences that need to be heard or not at the table oftentimes. So there's a lot so long story short the commission or the policy makers for the entire city of bozeman okay and the last five months since april. Yeah what have you personally done. Yeah so since being appointed in april. I mean there's just so much that we do is under the responsibility of the commissioners but in the last months a few things that i am particularly proud of that i've been i've been a part of it. I don't think what have happened if i was on the commission. So one of those things is..

"Five months ago which also how. That's how quickly is moving. that's insane. Yeah so it's been five months. How does one go about getting appointed. So it's not common to get appointed to the city commission. You have to do the only way that really happens is if one of the commissioners sort of steps off of the commission early so before their terms expired so We just happened to have two appointments in the past year for randomly in for our city commission so when that happens the commissioners of which there are five total so in for me there was four commissioners who all voted to appoint me until they kind of went through this application process where anybody who lived in the city of bozeman who was at least eighteen could have applied to be appointed to the commission and then the commissioners the ones who sort of picked to want it to be one of their colleagues so i went to the sprinters twice to process. I just gonna albert went. So there was an opening in october of twenty twenty and so i applied then Didn't get picked in october but had just a lot of public support. And that's what really inspired me to to so Launch my campaign in january of twenty twenty one. I was like you know. There's a moment here where people are asking for something that doesn't currently exist on the boat city commission someone who has more experience that mirror what most people experience in in our town so that really that support that i got even though it wasn't picked in october really sort of made me realize that there was a there was a time and a lot of sort of Energy and enthusiasm for something just a little bit more aligned with what the most common experience is the commission. I felt like i could actually really serve that role really well so i want my campaign in january and then again randomly. In april there was another opening. So i said already running this campaign. Remember me. i wanna be a commissioner. But what better way to show the the you know the people who live in this community with me that i'm that i'm excited and to serve And really worthy of their vote. They actually doing that job. And so i applied again in april on the key. The commissioner has picked me. I've been serving ever since. That's so cool win not give up with it. I respect that good jeff. Yeah thank you. Yeah it wasn't ever. I mean if anything it was more just not getting picked in. October is really just for me. Like okay like nothing about my life really change. I still have my my jobs jobs. I'm doing it wasn't like i. It was a really random opportunity that kinda came up and in october. So i had i had it like a line. My whole life around this one opportunity So let me just see what happens. You see if no if there's if i can get appointed in. You know if i if i appointed only other chance to see if i have like you know being in public office in serving in this way Spoiler i do like it. I love doing it so it was just more of like it was even though i think pick didn't have. It wasn't like earth shattering was more. Okay we'll like let's do this the way where people vote for me then inaugural it that way and you you have to you get appointed. Yeah but you're not technically elected yet no amount elected yet so i was. I was appointed My term technically expires at the end of twenty twenty one. So it's kind of confusing people when they get there when they get their election balances here..

"I women don't get me wrong. But it's very fulfilling role for women. How do you feel about that. Yeah i completely agree with you. On that and i can relate to that too Taking care of family in taking care of a home. That's a fulltime station Right and i think that that's a really important part of success You know you're this all the time. He can't really find a lot of success. You your house is a mess or you're not able to Eat properly or you're not able to exercise. And i think a lot of women find that role for fulfilling and at least for me is my perspective on it I'm sure i could have a you know a great career But i think if if you're a woman and you you have that definitely have to sacrifice Your you know full capabilities as a wife and a mother And for me personally. I'd rather be an excellent wife. Excellent mother and support my future husband in in his journey like career journey right. That just seems those daft division of roles. Just that makes so much sense to me. And i think a lot of women and men want that and you know they can find each other and make that happen okay. What would you say to somebody who says to you. I don't understand your side because it sounds like all she wanted somebody to take care of you financially. Because you can't do it yourself. yeah no. that's great. I think that's part of it What i would say to them is that you know we're not. We're not here to work in by here. I mean like planet right like working has its purpose and i'm not opposed to working. I work really hard I've accomplished a lot right. And you know. I've been under tremendous amounts of stress and high pressure situations. And i think that you have to examine. What is your role and What is the most noble course of action that you can take. And as i think about it more i think that Like focusing on my family would be Is definitely my purpose at least for the next on the years to come and i really don't think that you know the the house. Housewives are lazy or something silly. like that I don't think that that's the case at all. And i think that you know if you go online and you look at a lot of these women. I'm you realize that it's actually quite the opposite. And they really do their best to support their man and support their family and basically working is not the only way that you can do that. That's one part. That's one really important part. Big nurturing is also Another part that's equally as important. I agree with you. One hundred percent and i think that's a great place to stop. So where can everybody finds you and what you just tell us everybody where they could find you if they want to hear more of what you have to say to follow you. Yes sir can find me on twitter.

I'm just saying in general you'll figure it out because you have to enact a great message and and i appreciate that message that you just gave you the that's beautiful I think that being a wife and a mother or being a a dad And being husband is just as honorable goal as you know achieving a career or achieving some sort of other successive anything. It's more and i think that young people should you know should see that as an honorable honorable goal in something that they can work towards. If that's what they really want absolutely and you know.

"When you try to include transgender people in women's sports specifically like with a by like male biological advantage. You exclude all other biological women in the process of doing not right Larger number of people right and the specific people that you are apparently trying to support right. I don't understand why anybody's why anybody in favor of that It's you know from my experience I think it's just wrapped up in the the ideology. Because like i said i've a lot of very very radical progressive acquaintances. And you know. It'll be transgender. Women know all this shared all the time But there's i've yet to hear anything about About transgender women in sports right. They just repeal here today. No i mean it is a big deal known. I collect attorney. That's not what i meant. I meant more people sharing their personal experience about it. Because i think like they know. If you think about it logically It just it's it's not. It's not right right. And i mean that's something you know as a female athlete. Someone who you know a woman who really benefited from being a girl on sports like i am really passionate about that. I really do think that girls should pursue sports and If this we continue on this trend. I mean you know. Girls and women's sports are will be no more. I think the wnba oh different. Yeah definitely accept the sign out right. Ex- pretty clever. Yeah so let's go ahead before. Finishes gordon share anything else that you want to get out to the people who are listening to this program today and You know in will will close out the show. I would actually like to a address one of the questions you earlier. Because i don't think i answered it onto best When you would advice i would give to young now. Go back to that. Still stand by over. Tell them to examine a you know the sacrifices that men have made the honorable men have done But just the other. Big one would just be fertility education I'm learning so much about that right now but just the basic one would be. You know you hit women hit peak fertility in it's like mid twenties. I think it might even be sooner than not for some women And that would be a that would be so important because women are not told us like if feminism cared about women. Feminism would know that most women want to be wives and they want to be mothers and they would tell women that if you want that you should start thinking about that in your early twenties. It doesn't mean that you can't have a child in your thirty inches. Munich avenue forty But you should be cautious if you're delaying procreation in favor of saint career or having a good time in your twenties i agree with you. One thousand percent and as a person who had children little bit later on in life. I do think that you should have children in your early to mid twenties It's more fair to the kids. Makes you get your life together quicker but you also have to feel that you're responsible for children right so you have to.

"What do you think. I don't pay enough attention to canadian politics as i do american politics. You pay attention to american politics or no. I like many people. i really stopped after. This election I i don't really I know i know some because you know. I spent a lot of time listening to it. But i've i've kinda cut myself out. I try to avoid as possible. You happier that you cut yourself out of politics. Because i'm much happier than i don't know politics already know that definitely i. Yeah i'm i'm a big fan on focusing on you know personal things over you know political things. I know i'm speaking out against feminism. But a lot of that. I believe this is personal over political. So you have. You are a teacher. You teach music and stuff like that. Let me ask you this if you had a group of twenty young women. Let's say fifteen between the ages of seventeen fourteen fifteen more to say. Don't really a question appears your repairs twenty two eighteen or younger really indoctrinated into this lifestyle into this ideology. That you know is false. What would you say. How would you teach them where. You're not confrontational. Because you cannot confront any of these people writing as they will. They will shut down cry and magazine of epic proportions. If you try to so how would you. How do you think they could be talked to and maybe even become a little bit open minded rate. That's a really good question I think it's tough. Because i want to approach this logically. I do approach it logically in my head but Yeah i don't always think that that's the best option for maybe people. Who are more you don't fixated on kind of their emotions or how they feel about things. Probably the first thing. I would recommend i would tell women to do. Is i would happen. Think of the ways that it that men or the things that men in their life have done. That are honorable and that men have done in the past that honorable I think that's a huge one. Because i just think that there's this Disrespect for masculinity. Because we and i say this in air quotes like we technically don't need it anymore because like a woman can support herself right I would say dykes were explored the sacrifices that the men in your life have made men in the past have made it's fair now. The same point is easy to point out how much destruction men have caught and will definitely not fair..

Or they just don't fit into the modern society and that's gonna come to a head way which. I don't think that they want to have happened. Because how many people make money off race issues gender issues lawyers making money. The government being a being elected into a political offices. Because you support one side or the other so where this goes. I really don't know because too. Many people are making money on both sides right so if if both sides just keep going parallel. Nothing's gonna ever change and just getting get worse and worse and worse and worse till it comes to headway really going to have to go one way or the other and that's going to be ugly. So what do you think. What do you think's going to happen. What do you think. The state of canada's gonna look are the country of canada's like in five years. It's you know it's hard to say about canada. I would see the. us balkanize ing before. Canada I could be wrong on that. But i one hundred percent see that happening in the us What do you mean by bulking. What do you mean. I'm basically just the people with You know the. I guess the leftist beliefs to put it simply Have their space and the people with the other beliefs have their space. It's happening already. it's race it's happening by where people are moving geographically. Yeah precisely and you know. I thought about that. I'm not sure why it. It seems very obvious in the us. like i was saying before people are just are just very complacent here in non-confrontational The polite canadian stereotype is hundred percent. True so you don't have people like rebelling in the same way i'm not saying there's no one there's definitely a group of people that make Them but Who are on but definitely see that for the us as for canada probably just we have so much rural space. It'll probably just be the people kind of with my beliefs are moving to those areas out of the city and having a lot of kids home setting so there you go. But you're you're saying the same thing you live in the same country just going to move to a geographical a geographical area with like minded people. Yeah i think so. I mean i don't see unless i had a really good reason to i don't i don't see myself the moving of canada. I'm probably the only reason would be like my teacher spouse happened me from another country but like No i'm i think i'm staying here. So.

You'd have to ask one of them will. In your opinion they'll look like when you were in favor of such a thing. Yeah i think it's yeah it would be like women a women in power. I guess like women making decisions make women like you know controlling things I guess you could put dollars for. What do you think about women in power reading about now. I think that women shouldn't be pushed to be in powerful positions like they are now I think that there's this huge push to have. Oh we need more women representation or more women making important decisions. I i mean i think it's i don't know how problem with the woman like wanting to do that or doing that But i do think that is better suited for men. And i think that a healthy society is not necessarily. Let's say government for example fifty fifty men and women. I think it's a lot more. It should be a lot more lopsided than that naturally. Wow all right. So father to girls. I sit on one side of the fence and i say because i think that everybody should be able to do whatever they want. As long as you don't hurt anybody else right so if any woman wants to run for political office that's fantastic. If anybody would ever any woman wants to sit home get knocked up nine times out of nine kids and take care of all of them. I'm happy with that too. Okay so i think that whoever's in political office should be fit for political office not just because they're a man or woman and i don't think that anybody should ever vote on. Oh i'm only. I don't know the positions but i'm voting for that person since women. I'm a woman. I'm a man and i think whatever that one about for women i want to see the first woman president or a prime minister there has been female prime ministers right in kennedy. So that's that's just a totally. I don't even know. What kind of mindset. That is that you just want to vote for somebody because the gender that they are and i don't understand why we have to put ourselves into the all these boxes you know white black women men.

We absorb ir from beef from animals a lot more effectively than iron from spinach so it doesn't really matter. That spinach has a lot of iron and i love spinach but doesn't work really the i i. It doesn't it doesn't work from the research that i've been doing wonderful all right so let's get back to. Let's get back to young.

"Sir. So what are you. I can see your face really dealing with that. Now right i mean i i still a bit. I'm yeah you can't really tell by saying me right now. But i mean i've i've done huge thanks to you know. Help my health So it isn't like a decade You know that mostly it's your diet right. Yeah i have lots of experience in diet. I could be doing clock out not as well. Well we're going to do it all right now. What what because. This was very helpful. My two young girls. Don't don't listen to their dad. And i'm saying oh you you have like i don't want to forget problem with acne problem with Metro issue issues. I said it's because you eat the way you eat. That can't be. I'm telling you it's the way it's the way eat what you eat is going to affect that hundred percent. So when did you realize. I'm sure you two thousand doctors and everybody gave you a different thing. And they were trying to pump as many pills into his. They could write yet pretty mom. So when did you realize actually. It's only about what. I'm eating yet so that started around. I guess that's around seventeen. I went beacon and the first step before before fully went being was cut dairy and a cut out eggs and that seemed to work. Really well for me And then i went vegan and the whole vegan thing was beyond It was beyond just health There wasn't a long period of time. Where thought neat was necessarily bad for me But i did get wrapped up the ideology of it. And i'm speaking for five years actually or than five years When i say vegan. Like i really i really was like i really believed it. I thought it was the best option for me. And i actually only stopped that a couple of months or even just a month ago now And i kind of completely flipped. The switch am now on more like a meat based diet low carb. And it's been great so far. Veganism ism released. Served me well to be honest. I know it gets a bad rap on twitter But there were a lot of benefits to it for me But you know we're always evolving into something else now. I do not have a problem with veganism as an elimination diet. I do have a problem with it as a long term solution to overall of optimal health that sounds to me based for optimal health. So let's talk about that really quick. You're you're you're eating your vegan diet. most most. Your stuff goes away. Because i to know what it's like with the eggs part of it okay. I'm extremely large eight whites and Not allergic but they inflame me really really bad Everything does for the most part. So i'm basically stick to like ninety percent based diet and it has worked for me quite a bit but i would never consider veganism. Just need but So you flip the script on c. You're bouncing along that old liberal and worked for you which is great and it does work for people. I know a lot of people who went to begin but didn't they right around that five year mark. they're like. I don't feel so good anymore. You know so. So what was it..

"Lower carbon footprint and increase production absolutely. And so we'll always continue to look at oil and gas opportunities down my avenue. Investment in blue wear which is focused. On what most people think exploration but i'm like oil and gas is not away number. One and people are reducing their exploration budgets. But it's much cheaper to find oil than it is to buy existing reserves If you can if you're good at it so i'm like well. Everyone's going away from expiration. I think it's great bad because explication if you can use digital technologies to find reserves bam. That's a huge huge. Increase your value of your company. So i make bats an expiration because i believe that technology digital technology is completely changing the game there. Yeah that's a good point. It's kind of like you know you go into this manufacturing mindset of shale and the everyone just kind of you know expiration just kind of bastardize and you don't take all these new technologies and apply it to that process. I'm sure there's a ton of opportunities. One of the best stories energy tech ever. Was that one company that we talked by. Remember the name of it. But it was like thousands of the guy from worked nasr's jpl and he got investment from The newfield energy ceo and a bunch of other people but the jets. Yeah so you're like four hundred eighty million in multibillion dollar valuation oiling gas experience and he bought these these decommissioned russian jets and was essentially saying that he was gonna fly over basins and with technology. Be able to detect the reservoirs right and turns out the whole thing which was like just a scam essentially so but we do have the technology to apply and I just think that it's interesting that everyone's kind of turned their back on just conventional exploration. But if you apply some technology. I'm sure there's a lot of low hanging fruit there to extract value. Yeah i mean data you know again. We've said this a million times. But i think in twenty eleventh one of my companies coined. Data's the new oil. Yeah two thousand eleven. By the way i hear i read it now like well. That's been we've said. I love tree. The trading side of energy and so both power and and gas and i thanked trading. There's so much happening in trading and and the convergence of retail and and and and cell. Trang is a big space.

I i'm not sure you know mobility me like the whole transportation sector and and you know betting on what's going to be the right ev solution. I think he is more of a power business anyway like electric vehicles because you need to get those needs to be charged and ev charging platforms are really power. So i see that as more power power.

Htc it's very quiz by political hands in this pie bureaucratic very much a real estate play and it's not tech play. I mean look like an i again. I've been hot and cold on austin. And we go to austin if we if we want to on the podcast about my belief since. I did live there for twenty years but josh bears the mayor of austin. He's an entrepreneur. Tacky he's awesome. Yeah who's who's the who's that in houston fact. Everyone has tried to be that in. Houston's been sort of throw down thirty we throw rocks at us people including myself. Yeah it's like the the people that sorta ran the houston tech ecosystem are bureaucrats yachts. And there's a place for everyone. But but i've told them and they don't like the answer. I'm like that's the problem. You're trying to orchestrate something that news bureau ganic yet and you're trying to hold back people that are trying to build things organically yet.

Democrats to Unveil Up to $3,600 Child Tax Credit as Part of Stimulus Bill
"House committees are now hammering out the details of the nearly $2 Trillion Coburn relief package. Put forward by President Biden. Children are at the center of one of these pieces of the package. And with more on that I'm joined by ABC s Elizabeth Scholesy in Washington. Elizabeth Great to have you with us. As usual. This is expected to be direct cash payments to American families with kids. Hey, yeah, That's right. So great to be with you. This is a new proposals that we put forward today by Democrats in the House Ways and Means Committee, essentially calling for an expansion of the child tax credit, So the breaks out is essentially Asking for $3600 per child under the age of six and $3000 per child between the ages of six and 17 and the Democrats say this is holding true to Biden's promise to expand this chap this child tax credit. And to help alleviate poverty. No, there is research showing that this would help cut child poverty and half That's according to a Columbia University study, and this is part of a broader effort as we know of that nearly $2 trillion covert relief package, but certainly a Democratic priority here that have gotten some Republicans support. We saw similar opportunities will put forward by Senator Mitt Romney last week. So this is an interesting way to get more cash to families, especially lower income families and CBS interview yesterday, the president indicated he He doesn't really want to come off that 1.9 trillion mark, but is willing to negotiate with regard to income eligibility. That's exactly right. Joe Biden is holding true to the demand for $1400 stimulus checks. He says he will not go up go below that dollar amount, but he is willing to negotiate on who gets those checks. Currently, the proposal says, If you get more if you earn more than $75,000, you would start phasing out and you would not qualify their own individual That would be $150,000 per couple. So I didn't sound out open to maybe having that income threshold deal little bit lower. Notably those. Some Democrats are pushing back on that idea. We did hear from Senator Bernie Sanders and said anyone who got a stimulus check under President Trump. Should also get a check under President
Joshua Coburn on How to Inspire a Positive Revolution
"Joshua Coburn back on DOSA leadership. Welcome. My friend. Glad to have you here. Honored to be back. Thanks again. I'm I'm super stoked has been way too long way too long and we were talking to six years I couldn't believe that I thought. Well, I'm even four three and six years. Yes so much. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Just briefly mentioning the world's change lives have changed I mean it's it's crazy. Six years is is a long time for sure especially in this crazy digital kind of fast paced world that we've been dealing with the last several years I still feel like I've kind of obvious have kept pace with you with facebook friends. I've seen on TIKTOK. I've seen your kind of progression of you and your brand and one things can we have different is like you look like a completely different human being you look like. A beast, your monster, you're like workout. Your work regimen I, it's impressive to see how much your body has changed in six years. Yeah. Thank you. You know it's it's crazy to. Kind of that whole cycle is been interesting in terms of you know when we last spoke I was really focused on mental health and things like that especially with students. And when I would go and I would speak I get photos back of like those events which was awesome. But I felt like. I looked of like. A like a dad you know. A little bit of a gut like arms word anything major and I hadn't thought about like hitting the gym. In High School, but I realize you know part of. Good. Mental health good physical health, and if I'm not seeing that through than what kind of example am I? So yeah, it was it was time to step up my game. So I think maybe late two thousand. Fourteen fifteen it would be it'd be early, two, thousand, fifteen I started kind of stepping into that world Orrin. Weirdly, it didn't take long I ended up with a sponsorship from Supplement Company and just really dove. Headlong into that world. So it's been an interesting right to that you know to that end as well. It's impressive and I. did you change your diet? Much I mean I got the supplements sponsorship. So that was part of your Diet but did you change? How you what you were drinking I mean was that radical to Yes. But I did it over time because really when I started making that change, it was more initially mental. It was a matter of showing up be split, getting the job done and. Kind of heading home, making sure that I was on point to return the next day and as time went by, I started to see some physical changes and then it's like well okay. Now, I need to maybe adjust the food and I think a lot of people when it comes fitness. They try to they try to join the gym. You know try to change all their food all at once and they get frustrated because you know there are two weeks and they changed everything about their life. They're not happy and they're not seeing results either so I didn't approach it that way I didn't start changing my diet until a good eight or. Nine months into. Kind of my physical transformation or by my kind of. Focused to physical side of it anyway, and once I I. Really. Started thinking you know Ok food may maybe I'll look at food different. I just started with simple things instead of buying you know free frozen pizzas. By. One lesson throw Broccoli and that's how I slowly over time changed it. But yeah, I got to the point where I was. Essentially, show you know bodybuilding show ready. So I was you know five to seven percent body fat lean ready to rock and roll.

Why Mayor Pete Buttigieg thinks he's the one to beat Donald Trump
"Mir p footage welcome back to the podcast extra. Haven't been good to be back all right. Let's jump right on in a row. Is it too late to stop? Senator Bernie Sanders. No but it will be if we don't get our act together. Look we have a very clear choice as a party. Right now We can take his approach and I recognize that he speaks for a lot of ideal ideals that we share but it's also an approach that is about consolidating a base and pushing away. People disagree you at a moment when I think we have to be doing the opposite now. We're only three states in We're on the eve of the South Carolina primary then come Super Tuesday but we could wake up after Super Tuesday with no going back and I think it's time to really ask ourselves how we're GONNA move forward I'm with US. You said It will be if we don't get our act together. What does that mean? What does that look like? Get Our act together. Of course what I think that should look like is to rally around a candidate. Perhaps the one candidate to have actually beaten Bernie Sanders anywhere in the country cycle which Which is my campaign and a look at a vision that can make room for everybody. That is very progressive and set up in a way that that can actually reach out to independence and android some Republicans over the line to because I think that's how we're going to win in November So that's the case that I'm continuing to make that we cannot Expect to succeed against the president this divisive if we're sewing a different kind of division from our own side there's a better way and our campaign shows the promise of making that happen and you mentioned divisive and and Senator Sanders sent out a tweet. That caught a lot of people by surprise. Were wondering if it was a lot and not him but he really did send out a tweet that said. I've Got News Republican establishment. I've got news for the Democratic Establishment. They can't stop us. How how would give me a reaction to that? Well I think it reflects a worldview where the Democratic Party is the problem. And that's not how I see things I've I've never automatically felt like part of any establishment obviously Competing as I am as a as a mayor from South Bend Indiana and not exactly waiting my turn but to to say that the big problem in America right now is Democrats. I think Mrs what's going on what's going on right now. Is We've got a president who succeeded with a hostile takeover of the Republican Party and a sense that our party has not been able to connect with a lot of people who would benefit from our policies who are certainly capable of voting for us. Think of all the people who voted for President Obama Just a few years ago and then turned around and voted for president trump. We can't let that happen again and part of why. I was very excited. About how competitive we were in the Iowa counties for example the digits that they voted for President Obama sometimes twice and then swung over to president. Trump is that we don't have to have a repeat of two thousand sixteen in fact the less twenty twenty resembles two thousand sixteen in all respects. The better does it offend you. That a person who is a member of the Democratic Party continues to thunder against the people? He'll need to win the nomination and to govern if he were to win in November. Well let me say this. Ultimately we need to unite the country and uniting. The country begins with uniting the Democratic Party. If you think the Democratic Party is the problem or even sometimes engage in rhetoric that makes it sound like Democratic Party is the enemy while competing for the Democratic nomination. That is going to make it very challenging to actually bring folks together in the speed that we need to in order to compete in order to win. What do you say to his supporters if you are the nominee and he isn't because it is no secret that the supporters have Bernie Sanders so-called Bernie Bros? I've been a victim of them. Lots of journalists have lots of politicians have lots of regular everyday people have been What's the word the kids are using a third over? That's a new. Oh yeah saying saying remotely negative things about Bernie Sanders. What do you say to them? Well I'd say you have a decision to make if this is about personality. That's one thing but if this is about policy if this is about Raising wages for workers if this is about ensuring the corporations are held accountable. This is about doing something on climate before it's too late. I will be the most progressive president in our lifetimes. It's true that I believe that some of the proposals that come from Senator Sanders go too far and and are not going to be a past anyway but Just to be very clear I am running to be a I think also would be the most progressive nominee. We've had in recent memory so if this is really about the change you want to see in the world and not how much you you feel attracted to the personality of one or another candidate. Then I'm offering just that and I'm offering it in a way that I think could actually unite an American majority. That actually is with us on these things you you'd never realize from certainly from looking at the Senate or even from looking at some of the coverage is it. There is a powerful American majority right now then agrees for example that the public sector should step up and fix the healthcare problem. Just as long as we don't force it on too many people that agrees that minimum wages have to go. We gotta do something about gun violence. We've got to create a pathway to citizenship. When it comes to immigration we got to act on climate This is an American majority. Let's let's galvanize it not blow it up. That sounds great. But what is your. What is your path after Super Tuesday and I focused on Super Tuesday because we go in rapid succession from South Carolina to Super Tuesday on three days. What is Your Path? Well we need to have a good showing in certainly on Super Tuesday and I think that we will We just We're in Virginia. Yesterday had I don't know the final crowd count but it was the better part of ten thousand. People are out there with amazing energy Same thing when we were in Colorado on our way out after the the caucuses in Nevada and we're going to work to compete in in every one of those Super Tuesday states. Look the reality is. There's no quick way to win But we believe State by state election by-election a we can piece together what we need Provided that I can do the job of Of gathering the support of those who are skeptical about Senator Sanders approach and looking for a better way. Go back to the basically the beginning of this conversation where I ask you about If we don't get our act together and of course it's all you think it's about coalescing around you. But there are a lot of people who are saying all. The centrist so-called centrists in the campaign are taking votes away from each other in allowing Senator Sanders to run away with it What would happen or how does that happen if you are? Senator Coburn Senator Warren. Don't get out of the race. I mean at some point after Super Tuesday. There's going to be a clamour in the within the party. How do you make the case to the party? That you shouldn't be the one below drop I would say that. So so if folks are looking for an alternative to Bernie Sanders and believe that there needs to be fewer alternatives in order for anyone to make it. Why would you look to the one person who's actually beaten him anywhere in the cycle as the one that you would ask to step aside You know we. We have been able to Defy all of the pundits expectations we have been able to compete Especially in again those areas that we're going to need in order to defeat. Donald trump that vote democratic usually but haven't lately and we've got a track record of ahead of a lot of the other people who are going to be Looking at Looking to their left and looking to their rights. And you're GonNa make room for me at the end of the day Voters are going to settle this.

Because we're doing a story on him for nightline and they were in the studio with their cameras recording as we recorded this interview For the podcast forgot to mention by the way that his name is Diego Perez but the the way the world world knows him as young Pueblo. which is the name of his instagram account? And you'll hear him explain why he came to that name all right enough for me here. We go young young Pueblo. Well Nice to meet you nice to meet you too. I would love to hear your backstory. How did you get into meditation in the first place? Well it was back in July of Twenty twelve twelve day my first course in the summer And I had just overcome. It was a pretty serious year. Twenty eleven or twenty twelve. I was basically basically pulling my life back together. I had gone pretty deep into just using a pleasure and intoxicants like drugs and alcohol to get as far away from self as possible and it Kinda hit rock bottom and that summer of two thousand eleven and basically almost died felt like you. The body was just like full of drugs and I was on the floor. Basic trying to pray myself back into life because I felt like I was having a heart attack and you know I was twenty three at the time like I had to push my body that far to the edge And literally just because I didn't know how to deal with my anxiety and my sadness and from from that moment when I was on the ground there really realizing that I could have really wasted my life. I've this is not how I want to go. I don't WanNa like my parents don't especially because my parents you know. We emigrated from Ecuador when I was very young in. My parents made such a giant sacrifice for me to even be in this country and to have this opportunity but in some ways if I die now I would have wasted every all of their efforts and that sort of gave me a lot of courage to just stop. Stop doing all the hard drugs and start dislike slow. Walk into being healthy again because I was like so overweight when healthy so sad and was constantly only thinking about what like. What's the next pleasure that I could have so that I don't have to feel like this? The sadness the underlying emotions that you're trying trying to get away from were they just part of your wiring or were they connected to life experiences that have been traumatic. Yeah there I I mean besides like the trauma of poverty. We grew up poor but house always kind of wired that way. Even when I was really little I always felt you know I was very extroverted. Had A lot of friends but just underlying sadness that kind of compounded over time and it just grew and grew to the point where it became unmanageable and really really destructive. Where did you grow up so I grew up in Boston after we was born in Ecuador? And when I moved moved to Boston when I was four and a half and then I was there until I was eighteen when I went to college in Boston proper. Yeah Yeah in Jamaica Plain and what we're folks doing to to get by. It was tough. I mean we were so we're broke like My mom was cleaning houses and my dad was working in a supermarket and luckily we were able to live live in Boston. Because my aunt who had moved from Ecuador in the sixties She and her husband had bought like triple decker and they were renting it really cheap one of the floors I us For like very very cheap and so you went off to college at Eighteen and then a twenty three year. You're on the floor of your apartment. Yeah what what. How bad did what did it look like your the the drug abuse drinking what? How bad did it get? It was consistent not every day. It was kind of like a Monday to know. Sorry from Wednesday to Monday. I think like Tuesday's we're off and But even on Tuesdays. I'd still be like smoking weed and but the weekend was very long. We got there like at the school that I went to especially at that time. I don't know what the culture is like there. Now but which Wesleyan University I was great prestige school. Yeah no it was great And I learned a time time when I was there and I. I love the experience that I had but I definitely just sought out having fun or what I thought was way too much and it became so consistent and like a a norm that I didn't think anything was wrong and then when I left there I saw that I still had that like constant urge craving to just continue that and I wasn't in that environment that could produce it so I had to like make situations to continue having the spine so just got really heavy into cocaine and to to the point where I just felt like I couldn't even walk very far without my heart feeling like it was gonNA explode Yeah I've Had My own experiences with that drug. Yeah get produced a panic attack from you on national television. Which was Oh yeah? Yeah so you've taken us through the what appears to be pretty hard bottom On the floor Trying to pray yourself back to some sense of normalcy. How did of that land you on a meditation? Retreat sounds like a year later. It was exactly I was almost exactly a year later so I stopped the really hard drugs And I started and exercising and taking superfoods. I remember like one of the first things I did was by the toughest bureau of Barley grass and started consuming. 'cause like I never never knew how to eat well and I slowly started feeling better and better like you know. Having a relatively good diet helps balance the mind out a bit so that was helping me see things a little more clearly than a friend of mine had been travelling in India and he did attend David Positive of course and he when he came so. This is also one of the people that I used to party with a time. You know do all the same drugs with and everything and he wrote an email after his experience and it was all about love Compassionate and goodwill so to me I was like like what the hell happened like this person who I love. You know I was like one of my brothers. Why is he talking about love? Now like what you know how. How is this experience variance so powerful that it made him right this email so I immediately signed up and did a few months later and it was like dramatically changed my life? I want to dive deeply and just just for clarity of terms if a pasta can be a confusing term on a number of levels one of which one of the levels levels is that there is a kind of meditation practiced in many ways And in many different ways In the Meditation World When people say I'm going on on the positive retreating often mean I'm going on a retreat at a center established by legendary very teacher by the name of S N. That's was an Indian businessman who learned how to meditate while doing business in Burma. Yeah exactly and he then started creating meditation centers for lay people. And now they're all over. You were telling me this three hundred before we started about three hundred around the world and so the Pasta is an ancient form of meditation also called insight. Meditation taught outside of the Wencke school such as such as it is but somehow in the meditation vernacular nowadays and when people say. I'm going out of the positive retreat. They generally mean going. Yeah definitely I think. The positive globally is sort sort of like the silent giant like there's so many of us centers around the world and people practice it To different degrees and I think that's what. Yeah what people think about talk about going kind of pasta on

Serendipity for the 'Mueller, She Wrote' podcast
"Muller? She wrote has been a weekly podcast since two thousand seventeen examining the developments in the investigation by Robert Muller into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election episodes are occasionally taped before a live audience and one was scheduled for last night at Largo here in Los Angeles, and then serendipity struck when it was announced that the mole report would be released that same day, the podcast hosts are stand up comedians, Jellison Johnson, Jordan, Coburn and a woman who only goes by her initials, and now please welcome the host of more. She wrote. He g won't reveal her full name because she's a federal employee whose prohibited by law from participating in partisan political activities, I was in the audience for last night's taping. And then spoke with Jordan, Coburn and AG afterward. And I began by asking AG how the timing of the mole report changed her show last night. It literally changed like twenty minutes before we got here because we've had the same structure for live shows that we've been doing for all two of our previous life show, so far I was like we can't just act like it's a normal day. You guys we have a really great show planned for you that we just scrapped, and we were probably gonna go right off the cuff or this called going and cold. But we hope you enjoy it. We're going to do some sabotage. We're gonna do some fantasy indictment league. Because you we normally keep it a little bit more light hearted and fun and have some games involved. You know in the live show. We'd like a quiz section on our news stories. But yeah, we had to switch it last minute. You go by the initials AG, and for people who don't understand does does that have something to do with the hatch act, and why are your initials in the hatch act in some way connected for people who don't understand what the hatch act is. I'm going out of my way extra to not violate the hatch act because I work for Trump's executive branch. And so the hatch act basically says that you you can't use your agency or title as federal government employees to advocate for or against a somebody running for political office. And we know Trump's been running since the day he got into office because that's his moneymaker. I take a step further. I could use my name. I just want to keep it all out of it. And I want to keep a nice giant crowbar separation between what I do at night and on the weekends. And what I do during the day. What do you think your work, and your background give you in terms of understanding issues that other people might not have working in the government? And I think you're veterans that right, right? What does that perspective? Give you how understanding how absolutely slow the government roles. It's just so Celo and people right now they want answers now. And they, you know, they just don't understand why things take so long, and I hope that I can lend some explanation as to why they do and that it's actually that way for a purpose. When the report came out did you say to yourself? That's it for the podcast because I mean, obviously, the title of the podcast is Muller. She wrote and Miller has written. I'm not sure really because I I don't feel that I'd dictate where this show goes. I think the listeners dictate whether or not the show keeps happening, but you know, personally, we've got twenty offspring investigations from this. That are still open an ongoing we've got the stone trial that doesn't start till November. We've got bijon key on July. We'll keep covering it. If people keep needing us. To cover it. Yeah. I think we know that there's a lot to be covered and could go on for a very long time. But my fear, I guess was that people would take bars four-page summary and think that that means shops closing up, and that's all there's to be seen. But I don't think that's how our fans are. And I think we have a lot more to do. Everyone was like, oh, they're done. No further indictments. And then boom, Greg Craig it's dieted yet. Mr. first name since right? One indictment bridge. Name. Yeah. What you that's the real crime who first name. What do you think it is that you give listeners that maybe they can't find some other place? I think we remove the talking angry heads that a lot of people get tired of. But mostly the whole mission of this was to keep people interested in keep people engaged and to keep it simple. And to to take these traumatic and important events in spin them into humor, it it kind of helps us get through it. It's kind of like if you don't laugh, you'll cry and fans say that we were curatorial journalists and everything that we do we always provide context as well. So it's it's like very as a huge story, obviously and everything fits in a time line. And I think we do a good job of reminding everyone the the importance of each news bid that comes up and keep it rolling in a way that's easy to digest. And yet in a very recent episode of your podcast, you
