Trump Campaign Files Lawsuit Against Philadelphia Over Election Offices
"Trump's campaign is suing Philadelphia over city leaders preventing campaign reps from watching people registering to vote or filling out mail in ballots in election officers there. The lawsuit filed tonight comes amid the president claiming he can on ly lose the battleground state of Pennsylvania if Democrats cheat and suggesting Philadelphia needs to be watched closely for election fraud. But election lawyers and city leaders and the state's top elections, people all say that there is no right under Pennsylvania law, even for a certified poll watcher to watch people do things like register to vote or fill out their ballots. Well along the same lines. During Tuesday's debate, President Trump told people to go into the polls and watch very carefully and that's raised concerns about voter intimidation. Tonight.

Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality
"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will

Hundreds of business and permanently closed to these overreaching mandates. I hope Dr Kane, meaning Dr Virginia Kane and the marrying County Health Department will be responsive to these concerns. The marrying County Health Department has been free to operate without any checks. It bounces for far too long. This written by Josh Bein, a Republican on the Indianapolis City County Council. The issue, of course, is mandates. Of course, the issue is mandates. The issue is not Whether that you should wear a mask and advocating for mask wearing Which brings us to the statement of Alley Brown, Indianapolis City County Council District five Science and data driven time and again that wearing a mask greatly reduce the spread of covert 19 and have the city known these facts that the onset of the pandemic we would have aggressively implemented this policy from the beginning, and in turn, we would have saved lives and restoring our community to some form of normalcy. However, this simply isn't the case wearing a mask is not only responsible, but it's a sign of respect for our neighbors, friends and family members. That's why I'm disappointed by the political stunt from India's Republican counselors. They're not only bucking to the buckling to the demands of the political rhetoric coming from their base, but they're now blatantly telling Hoosiers that their lives and their safeties do not come before their political selfishness. I hope they have a change of heart soon because this pandemic is more than just politics and they know it. Council Brown You missed it. Oh, God, such a swing. The issue is mandates and you should not have the authority to mandate masks. You should recommend masks. The issue is mandates, just like the governor should not be able to mandate a mask. That you cannot see through the two things. The difference is really a conversation about you being power hungry. You know, it's it's like when the City County Council passes the bonds for for the convention center. I know a lot of people like what conventions?

You need to be forward thinking what was the thing that you thought was more important that we were giving good union jobs. Maybe That's why the cost so high The idea that the only people who could build something a union people is a laughable construct. It shows how out of touch you are. With so many of today's economic realities. The idea that you have to have on Ly Union labours laughable idea and that that's the thing that you're most pleased by shows how political you are, as opposed to what opportunities there are for the growth of the city. Now, if you're really interested in some return to normalcy, wouldn't you have been out there Front and center is saying that the City County Council should order glass for all these businesses that have their businesses destroyed. Wouldn't you be out there with a broom cleaning up after all of the homeless issues and drug dealing issues that we have in the city? In the totality of the city. Wouldn't that be you? That wasn't you? Was it? There's never a social media moment or social justice moment. I should say where you don't have something good and woke to say.

The 1918 Spanish Flu: Fact vs. Fiction
"This is Oscar Fernandes and today on the show, we put the spotlight on Texas to discuss the fact versus fiction of the Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen and to follow up on the one year anniversary of the mass shooting in El Paso Texas, the largest mass shooting targeted against Latinos, and so there's no need for a long introduction today on the show because our guest today has a lot to say on how the US in various ways is repeating history in its poor response to the pandemic. The scapegoating of others who have no control of the pandemic and which community ultimately praise the costs for the pandemic and so with us on the show today is w Dorado Romo. He's a researcher and the author of a ringside seat to revolution and underground cultural history of El Paso, and is which is available on single prosperous that we joins us today to combat to show W doral Romo. Thank you so much. Is Good to have you with us once again and doesn't probably no way of escaping any news whatsoever as it pertains to the current. Co Ed nineteen pandemic. You know it's affected almost every corner of society both here in the US and abroad. But one thing that's been cited as a frame of reference of valuable one, I would say is the Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen. Now in recent weeks, politicians and media people have stated that the US has not seen anything like the in pandemic since the Spanish flu of nineteen eighteen. Even you know Donald Trump and self has been cited Spanish flu in his own ignorant ways. I would I would say. But when reasons I want to talk to you was because this soon is the Spanish flu pandemic came up in mainstream media and the first thing that came to mind was Our discussion that we had last year with regards to the bath riots and it gives me the feeling that there's some things missing as it pertains to Race River Garson and the narrative of the Spanish flu pandemic. So a want to know based on what you've seen this far when people sight to space Lou, what do you feel is missing in this important narrative? I think you hit it on the nail. The idea that the pandemic was just a problem of perhaps Just, a a medical problem is something that's usually citing it by these media reports but. Raised and war have a huge part to play in in this. So called Spanish food and I think one of the things that has. Not Been. Looked into as much as. A huge role that the United States played in this called Spanish who I mean I I, I would call it the American sloop because they didn't start in Spain. It actually most of the evidence that we have historically the first official report. Of the Spanish flu was from Pasco County, council. And it was in a in a US military camp. Ford Riley canceled that it I broke out now there's other theories but most of the evidence points to that so this is Not so much the Spanish food at the American flu and I think that has been something that has not been as deeply investigated in many of these. Reports. So the question has to be asked, how did the Spanish flu get its name? If it was actually based here in Kansas as he said. Well. During. World War One, it was censorship. So the when I broke out in March of nineteen eighteen and one military cab. There was hardly anything written about it. It was actually A. A. Cook at the base of contract. And within. A few days there were hundreds of US soldiers? That, That were hit that that excel stake as Devo them died. From the flu. So the reason that is called a Spanish food is because Spain was a neutral country. So they were able to report. The fact that even even some of the most prominent. political figures from Spain were infected contractors to flu. So the name stuck that was the first. Was the first country where there was actually uncensored reporting about the flu to the main stuff but it was. It's also I think this idea of thickness. Always comes from the other side. The His what would you call it? The other association of of disease. You know the. Americans in the very beginning they and some of them playing some of the news sources would blame on the German thinking that it was a form of bacteriological warfare. Germans also had it. And they blamed it on the Russians they call it the the Russian has the Russians blamed on the Chinese everybody blamed on on on someone else the white South Africans called the the copy of. The Black Man Species? So I. Think this is part of. Stigmatization of the other using DC. To kind of Yeah. To stigmatize other racists, other nationality has always been kind of a universal part of this. Funny enough. Even back in nineteen. A lot of the banish medical. So rotation. Would pointed out the unfairness calling the Spanish flu they knew that it had not originated there

Washington, DC - Montgomery County officials approve policy on limiting police use of force, no-knock warrants
"Year, there were 140 search warrants executed by police in Montgomery County, Maryland. Of those 140 search warrants, 108 of them were referred to as No knock warrant, which means that usually SWAT team members go in without notice because there is I'm concerned that there will be ah potential violent situation. History of illegal weapons in the home or domicile that the police are are entering under that warrant, and therefore they have to have that element of surprise. Now, in the last 40 years in Montgomery County, there have been only three incidents of a no knock warrant that have involved his shooting. Three in the last 40 years. But because of the tragic killing of Briana Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. The elected officials, known as the Montgomery County Council decided to eliminate no knock warrants yesterday from the tactics and procedures that the Montgomery County police can employ in executing their job. It makes no sense to anyone who understands law enforcement and we need to talk about it. Lee Holland is the corporate vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police. Large 35 which represents cops in Montgomery County, Mr Holland. That's just one thing that they did yesterday. But I want to start there. What am I missing here? What is what happened to Brianna Taylor have to do it all with your cops in Montgomery County. I'm not exactly sure what Louisville has to do with the officers in Montgomery County. That's kind of same thing nationwide. The issues that happen nationwide eyes being brought into here through the council, as if it happens here, McDermott County and here in the Greek army We have a great police force. The men and women here do a great job. But I don't understand what changes are needed because things were happening elsewhere. And in fact, as the Montgomery County Council, I contemplated these changes to police policy. Were you consulted where the members of the police force consulted? What voice did you have in figuring this out? So we are submitted letters, which were not put as part of the packet. I testified the one question when I was called up on to the zoom platform over collected barring piece, But besides that piece of legislation, we had no input. And was there any rationale in terms of what did the politicians here were they able to point to specific incidents that have occurred in Montgomery County that rationalized to change of policy? No, they didn't. They didn't point of specific instance in this county. In fact, there's been talk from some council members, saying there's a green racism within our police department, and there is no basis of facts on that. So I mean, what are you able to do here in terms of representing the cops of Montgomery County and ensuring that they have the tools that they have to have available to them to to do their job? Well, I think one is being on shows like yourself and the other media to let him know exactly what this bill does, because what this bill does is is Help or not help. I should say it. Hamstrings us from investigating crimes or stopping crimes right after they are committed, because now the way we had reasonable suspicion to stop somebody where crime we now need probable cause to detain somebody. To put our hands on somebody, and that creates a whole different standard that's going to let people walk away from from crimes. And I like Officer stopped. You issued a statement yesterday to the media about this, and I appreciate you joining us live here, Leigh Holland. You issued a statement that was highly critical of what the Montgomery County Council did will Jawando one of the council members, he said, this on Twitter, I'll read it to you says It's very unfortunate that at this critical moment in history, the Fraternal Order of Police doesn't recognise the importance of de escalation and living in the use of The force as last resort to protect the lives of residents and rebuild public trust. I'd love for you to respond to that, in terms of the idea of de escalation and limiting the use of deadly force is the last resort. First of all, isn't it already a last resort? Absolutely, And it's unfortunate that counts numbered. Wanda doesn't want a partner with us on really police reform. We always wanted be escalate as much as we can. But the escalation is a two way street. Outside of wants a deescalate, too, And we always want to use deadly force as a last resort. We want to create time and distance. We want to get back up there. We want to use the less lethal force as much as possible, but sometimes that just can't happen. Really police reform needs to be something that everybody wants. That's supported by the police officers and supported by the community, not just one side, and that's what you're trying to get here, which we started at the bottom. Are we training? How are we recruiting? These sorts of things, not how can we hold off a cannibal Hackney fire officers. We don't like what they do when

And they don't even worry about ridership telling us that we should pay more for parking. You know, they're they're the caring caring loving people at that there at the city county council, they don't have a vision for the city. But that doesn't matter. They also know what's good for you. And you shouldn't eat steak they must revel in the fact that Shula steakhouses closing Shula's is closing there in the west. And they must just be overjoyed about that. I assume another great restaurants go in it's the western. I assume that's what's going to happen. But when it comes to meatless Monday, I like to highlight the restaurants of central Indiana.

"Can we truly do appreciate honestly, it is gratifying to know that you're kind enough to have us in on a on a daily basis, and we're here Monday through Friday pretty much every single week. Gary sent ours is going to take Friday off because he wants to golfing. So. Charity golf thing. That's likely. The funny thing is Gary in previous conversations has admitted that he's a little afraid of clowns. When he gets to that eleventh hole. And is he's a big clown face there. And that's going to be a scary Puffer under make windmills. He's okay with all right. There's something happening just reported on on the news just a moment or two ago. The sounds like such a nice thing. That I think is a horrible idea. Baltimore County council. Members are not pushing the owners white Marsh mall to enact a youth curfew. There's a resolution calling for a policy in utes. Scams after the council members have lobbied the mall owners who take measures critiquing late night gatherings of the young peeps. The idea that that there should be a curfew there. I don't object to that. That's not a bad thing. I know that the same folks who own white Marsh on thousand town centre, there isn't any policy in place in two thousand five center says if you're going to be there after a certain hour of a certain age you have to be there with somebody twenty one years of age or older. And there are other restrictions. Can't be one twenty one year old and fifteen eighteen year olds. I mean, it has to be a much more moderate number than that. And this is because the owners of. Townsend town centre said, you know, what we think it's appropriate for us as a business practice to do this right now. We think that's a good idea. I know hunt valley has the same kind of thing. Most malls have something like this. So what's my problem with this? My problem is I don't think it's any of the business of the county council to determine business practices for individual business. I mean, this is like being a little bit pregnant folks you either allow the county council to determine business practices for one business. And where she is. It'll be for all businesses or you don't and I would argue that we should probably say, no, this is a decision that the owners are white Marsh will have to make if they make the wrong of decisions they'll find themselves much more golden ring, then they will find or Owings mills. Then what they currently have. They will make the appropriate decision for their business at the appropriate time seems reasonable. They're not engaged in breaking any law. This is not a law enforcement issue. They're not encouraging scofflaws. They're not encouraging vandalism. Matter of fact, as practical business people they will oppose it. In whatever fashion, they can because they want customers to come to the mall, come to white Marsh with the understanding it's a safe place to be and your car will be intact. When you get done shopping cetera et cetera et cetera. So for those who say, gosh, what a great thing for the Baltimore County council. Let me let me say, no, it's not. Because where does it end? I realized this is a slippery slope argument. However, once a precedent is set that we are, okay. With a county council determining this particular piece of minutia for a business. This isn't saying you can only be open until nine o'clock or ten o'clock, or this isn't like the old blue laws. Are you can't open on Sundays? No alcohol sold till the Orioles game. So I mean, that's not it. We're talking about here is a corporate policy and the corporation has the highest interest in this the highest interest in this. If they fail to do their job and protect their investment will then shame on them. Our view that is not very smart behavior. And something tells me that if you're running a group of successful malls, not just here, but a number of other places Chicago-based, I think things like Brookefield holdings or something like this. And if you feel to do this, you won't be running a group of successful malls for very long. They will protect their interests. They will make sure that their customers enjoy coming to their mall and shopping mall. Thinking about this think about supplied somewhere else? Let's say this then gets applied to if you run a bowling alley. Just a standalone bowling alley. Should he county council? Then say will I'm afraid you you run this bowling alley. But we think that you should have specific regulations as to who can actually be bowling and what time of the day and what time on each day. Is Monday, ten o'clock is fine. But man, you get to Friday and Saturday we want to prevent you from being open to teenagers who want to come and bowling. You're bowling alley unless they have mommy and daddy with them. That's a nice way to kill off a business. Let's say that you decide that you know, what we want to prevent people of a certain type from shopping here. So let's restrict the kind of individual. That's all it does is by age somewhere else. Does that lead in what other areas should the government be determining business practices? So that's my objective this and again, it's kind of a subtle difference. And for some folks say, well, heck, I just wanna done. I auto care who does it. And again, it's like being a little bit pregnant either you are or you're not. Either you have liberty and you have the ownership of your own property or you do not. And once we say that's perfectly okay for government at one level or another to determine win shoppers at any given age can actually shop for whatever it is. They choose to shop for. Then government basically has taken from their business, some value and the business will not be compensated for it. Because somehow they'll say, no, this is not a partial taking this is simply us protecting our community. I understand that. I understand the desire to protect the humidity. I understand that. If there are additional costs around that is perfectly reasonable to say to the owners of that particular shopping mall or any or any business. Look if you run up excessive costs, we're going to start charging you for police time. This. You're aware. Considerably higher some off duty cops yourself and take care of this. But if we have to keep responding to stuff that's going on your particular business, then we'll get nasty. So that's my opening thought this morning. That. And of course, I know here that I've been jealous. Once once it becomes governor, which is outside shot for him. He is going to hire new Maryland government inspectors. To investigate wage discrimination at businesses in the state, and he asserts that women are paid on average ten thousand dollars less than men in our state says we're going to be proactive about ending the gender pay gap ten thousand dollars that's enough to fund childcare for a year. We're the hell did you get that number? Where's this ten thousand dollars? Come from. Is he simply adding up the salaries of every female in Baltimore County and adding up the salaries of every male and Baltimore County and saying, oh, gee, look if you do the math, it's ten thousand dollars difference. Because that's what it strikes me. He's done here. You telling me that if if you walk into a McDonalds that the women behind the counter are being paid ten thousand dollars less a year than the men behind the counter, I have a little trouble believing that I think that that doesn't happen. I could be really naive. You telling me that if you have a female CEO. And a male CEOs similar companies that the female will be paid the ten thousand dollars less. Well, if the businesses are direct competitors, and the females business is more effective in the marketplace and males business, actually, she'll be paid more because that's the way the marketplace works, but not for banjos because now it's an excuse to have more government employees looking over the shoulder of local businesses trying to figure out how can we justify bringing these businesses under our control again, it's the same thing. It's the same thing. We'll tell you. When your shoppers can be there in what age your shoppers can be a we'll tell you. How much you have to pay your employees? And people think socialism is not alive and well in this state, man, I'll tell you telephone number here is four one zero WGM EM six eighty toll-free distance at one eight hundred WCM six eighty and your emails. Come to Bruce wcbMcom. Let's start it off with van in Glen Burnie van good morning. And thanks for hanging on good morning. I wanna talk about the wall indicated yes, please years ago. There was a seven eleven that had that same problem with the kids congregating outside at night. So what they did is this started broadcasting classical music on a PA system. The problem. Yeah. I I remember that story that they found that to be not the environment. They wanted to hang around listening to Shostakovich. Change the music in the mall at at a certain hour. But that well, again, my view is. I mean to be specific on the topic here. The Boulder County council feels it's their job to tell white Marsh. A how to set corporate policy for who shops on agree with you on that point. But what I'm saying is they could take care of it themselves by changing. Music, and I suspect they've already taken proactive measures. And if those proactive measures do not work, then they will figure out that they need to do something more. I tend to think that the people who actually have a pretty high stake in this particular game are going to be the ones who play it most carefully in order to protect the plot. And the people who do not have a very high stake in this are the members of the Baltimore County council fan. Thanks for your call. Appreciate it. Zero WCBS six eighty toll fuelling distance is one eight hundred six eighty for you who went to E mail, your emails, come to Bruce and wcbMcom. So we have to local stories Baltimore County both of them and one, of course is Maryland. One Maryland Baltimore County, the creeping creeping slug of socialism the yellow banana slug it keeps on and they will keep on trying to encroach on business prerogatives as long as they are able to. Straightforward. Fill is in his car. Good morning. NFL? Yeah. Can you hear me? I can't. Thank you. Okay. I just thought that I might have a little bit different take on the mall situation. Then you have. I agree about the socialism and not only the of all of our county, but the state of Maryland the United States, but that's not my point. My point simply is. Have you given any thought to the possibility that the people from the mall have actually asked the city the county council to enact this legislation for fear of being tag with the famous are were. And so they say that us that did it if the county council that that that insisted on this. I don't know about that the same ownership that owns Telsim town and tells on does have a policy that the the owners put in place restricting a win teenagers can't be there without grownup supervision, and they did not do this. Because of the Baltimore County council passed a resolution saying either you do this or some we're gonna bring the force of law down on your head. No, I think this is simply the county council deciding it knows how to run their business better than the mall owners. Of course, we understand that. I mean there elected as a day are a part of the elite, and they know better than all of you got that. Right. Thanks for your call. Appreciate it.
