"You click on the little thing up in. The upper left there some little horizontal lines next to it. And then you go down to. I think it says app and under that says research so ap and then research you click on that research and then scroll down until you see the title of the book the twentieth century case for gold. And it's there free free. Pdf it's about. It's a one hundred six page pdf sonata long book. But i highly recommend it if you're interested in the topic of gold and and the value of money. Man it is it. I haven't read anything like it before all right. That's that and it's also available on amazon as an audio book. I found it. There is an audio book. So you know if you want to pay to listen to it. You can do that too. I up in the mail. Bag is giorgio and georgia says. Hi dan great show. I disagree with gilders view of bitcoin. Bitcoin is not really limited one. Bitcoin is theoretically infinitely divisible. Maybe at some time the number could be increased to greater than twenty one million units. The demand not met manipulation will set the value but not for many years one saito. She could be divided into smaller units with time. George oh i i sort of agree with you george. I i had attributed bitcoins extreme volatility to its newness and and you know the rapid adoption and and the let's face it. There is speculation that because nothing goes to you know seventeen crashes to three and then goes to sixty five and crashes those just call it thirty or twenty nine or something. It's highly volatile. Let's just get that. I've said this all along. Bitcoin trades like a biotech stock. You know so. Far trades like biotech. Talk to people like but it drives like a biotech stock. You know it's very very volatile. And i don't know everything i don't know that it's going to be one hundred thousand dollars or you know half a million or a million one day and you know that will have to divide it. Divided invited In order to use it so you know. I don't want to pretend like. I know everything for me. It's a matter of prepare. Don't predict you got a little bitcoin and just hang onto it Because it could be worse. Just a many many multi bagger one day if it really becomes adopted and used as currency anyway. That's my thoughts. And i just want to read your your note and react a little bit. George it's a it's this is good stuff to think about absolutely next. We have a really long question from kate. S and i'm gonna try to just kind of pick out the parts that i think are really important here. Kate so thank you kate. I send your question to eric wade. And he's gonna and. I'm going to read his answer but kate says a dan love the show love. The gas loved the book recommendations to five stars on all fronts. Thank you kate. And then kate says i have a huge crypto questions. So bear with me..

Four hundred and six passes eighty percent passing accuracy eighteen fouls that team fouls three yellow cards for the colombians. Pretty decent not super comfortable on the ball.

NBA looks to sports betting to fill the gap
"The nba season kicked off with a bang last night. The brooklyn nets beat the golden state warriors. One thousand five hundred ninety nine in the first game of the season with no fans in the stands looking likely anytime soon. The league is looking at new media strategies and sports betting to fill the gap and they aren't the only league doing so. How could that look. Our next guest has ideas. Let's bring in paul rebel. Founder the premier lacrosse league Paul great to see you again. Of course. The pl just merged with major league lacrosse. You say that this provides a singular destination for fans. I would imagine this. This gives the sport an advantage as well in terms of selling itself whether it be media coverage or streaming rights or any other kind of rights to carry the games. Yeah absolutely it's back. Happy holidays I think with sports in particular the ability to coalesce that have a singular message is important and for us when we look at future road profitability and just larger revenue Looking at the commercial opportunity of on now entering our third season twenty years or pro across history. That's looking like close to four thousand hours of twenty years of games at the mo of played that we can provide streaming service package as well as part of the announced we said we will get span to eighteen. Which is additional commercial assets and market now and as we continue to grow. We'll catch up to the legacy leaks. Hey paul dan great to have you back but in congrats on the deal. Quick one for you here you guys. You had that that bubble season this past summer very successful you know it was all over. Nbc all their properties. That sort of thing. Obviously no fans of how important was the sports gambling integration. You guys had done a deal with draft kings was that did that help engagement. And do you see that as a really important part of the offering the media offering going forward. Yeah it's huge allow. The sports properties have learned that we need to be more nimble. And not as reliant as call it major league baseball the traditional path to building a sports league on ticket sales the nba. What you reference malas typically rely on twenty or thirty percents of their revenue on tickets were looking at a modern sports age where it's meteorite sponsorship now sports betting merchandise in many cases the epl leapfrogs ticket sales and on the sports betting front. Dan we did a deal trap games last year and it was huge. I think what the sports betting this new gaming offers looking at now is live broadcast. Live odd integration And we're seeing networks now. Cut deals with gaming operators. If you look at espn's draft or mdc in points that so the properties are going to wedge their way and that's part one part two is i think in twenty twenty two to twenty twenty one. We're going to start seeing the entrance of bio data Related to players. So where will technology like lou on players that integrated the broadcast experience leaning more viewership and a larger handle sports ban in october. Three billion dollars legally registered. So we'll see that number continued to grow and more league revenue opportunity and board network revenue opportunity into twenty twenty

But i'd always been a spiritual seeker. In fact my family always thought i was going to go into the priesthood early on or something like that so i'd always been as brutal secret. I continued that all along. And so i ended up eventually leaving the country. I just became so alienated. I in part to get away from the drug culture house and baldin and partic- nixon was reelected.

And unfortunately the first time i came back to the states. When i ran out of money. I had to come back and work for a while. I couldn't bring them with me. So i realized you know it was still environmental and anyway this went on and eventually at near the second time i fell into or may choices rather engaging kind of small time cocaine smuggling originally just i was i had a connection and i would purchase something for people who are coming down and smugglers and i can make like a thousand dollars and live off that for six months down there so i continued like that for a while eventually got involved smuggling myself to come back to the us.

"Of an unbeaten season off their back and, you know, then start focusing on the postseason, so, but I think, uh, two or three weeks here when they had the Buffalo is going to be the key, Dan Great to talk to Jerry. Thanks for making time. Have fun today. We appreciate it. Well, Dan, Nice chat with you, Gerry Dulac. Hey, covers the Steelers for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Michelle, too, for your first hour who was great, said that whether would not be an issue that if they had played this last night, whether would have been an issue, But I think the Ravens running game will be the one issue, the only issue for the Steelers this afternoon. Some phone calls here, Noah in Wisconsin. Hey, know what's on your mind today? Hey there, Dan. First time medium time on. I just want to point out regarding the college football selection process. You pointed out that Texas A and M is unlikely to make it in because of lack of viewership. Interest. Um A few years ago, Clemson was not a marquee team, and now they've risen to blue blood status. I was wondering from a award nominated broadcaster and actor like yourself. Um, how Clem's in or I'm sorry, Texas saying them or dare I say my Wisconsin Badgers could rise to become a marquee team. Well, I think you have to have you know when Johnny Menzel was there, Texas saying, and we wanted to see him. Texas A and M doesn't have that. Well, I want to see that guy. Wisconsin doesn't have Jonathan Taylor. You don't have that guy and it doesn't always come down to it. But I do think it helps with if you have, like Florida has Kyle Trask. Now they're good. But I got a guy who might win the Heisman Trophy here and go back to Clemson A couple of years ago. We didn't know the weapons. Clemson had In fairness to Clemson, we realized the talent that they had. We didn't know if it was on the same level as an L s U. R in Alabama, or some of these are Ohio State, But then we quickly realized it was, but Uh, Clemson, you know, with Trevor Laurence Alabama has marquee guys. Uh, you got next saving you throw in there a lot of this when you think of college athletics. It comes down to coaches. It's weird college basketball was about coaches. It's not about players. You're tuning in its Tom Izzo in Michigan State versus Mike She, Schakowsky and Duke. They're not playing. But you can sell that Rick Pitino. John Calipari. Bill self like you Can. That's how you sell it. College football. It was Urban Meyer. It was Steve Spurrier. It was Nick Saban. Now it's Davos swinging. That goes a long way. It resonates with viewers. For some reason. I want to know how good the football team is. But we assume if the coach is great His team is gonna be great. But Davos, Sweeney and Clemson If Urban Meyer was still in Ohio State, you know, we might look at Ohio State differently than Ryan Day. Yeah. You know, Tex Stamina has a good season. But in early October, they got housed by Alabama on national TV that really every pump the brakes there quarterback is a guy named Kellen, Mont. Who is can be very good. Not consistently enough. And so past couple weeks, they miss games against Tennessee Ole Miss Alice you game, which would have been a prime time big game was not relevant anymore cause l issues way down, So that's that's what kind of hurt them this season. And I have nothing against and I'm getting in there. I'm just telling you what the what The truth is what the reality is. I don't have a rooting interest in this. Couldn't care less. But I just want to be fair to the system and what they see. You know how you what you're factoring in and make no mistake about it. It's a TV show. All else fails. Who's got a bigger fan base. I always feel that that is the deciding factor. If you you have to team if you said Ohio State and A and M Then we can't really decide. Ohio State. And him against Notre Dame, Notre Dame. I mean that Just logic that I think is attached to this. Kyle in Ohio. Hi, Kyle. Hey, Dan. Great show. I just I agree on the college football playoff that, you know, Highest state. I'll listen to the A and M fans. Florida fans on you know if they deserve it, and I will not lessen the Cincinnati fans. No, it was a year ago. 2019 last summer. All we listened to was how they're going to come into Columbus and give a high state all they want and they didn't cross the 50 42 to nothing again. Two different. I get it somewhat two different teams. Not 42 point difference. Yeah, And I understand that, Kyle, I get it. It's just We don't allow any wiggle room for a great story. Thanks for the phone call. When you think about college football. How does the underdog the underdog gets a weekend Appellation state goes into Michigan and winds in the big house and go? Oh my God! North Dakota State takes on a Big 12 Big 10 school and we go. Oh, my God, and that's it. That's their moment. Their March Madness takes place in September or October or November. And that's part of the problem. I have with college football that we don't entertain the possibility of somebody doing something truly unique..

"Chairman of HS Market and author, most recently of the new map, energy climate and the Clash of Nations. So, Dan Great to have you back with us. So put this in a larger perspective, As I say, we've got two very different approaches. If you listen to Joe Biden. It sounds like we're just around the corner for a major energy transformation. If your list of President Trump it's like it's not gonna happen anytime soon. Thank you, David. Great to be on with you again, and it is that pretty big Gulf between two candidates. Trump administration has been focused on the new position the United States as the world's number one producer of oil and gas, and what that does for the economy, what it does for the position in the world. Joe Biden has a $2 trillion climate action plan, which is very focused on addressing climate things, and I think in terms of oil and gas It's a little unclear where where he is. He made a point to say when he's in Pennsylvania, where there a lot of jobs related. Tio fracking is it's called that he's I'm not going to ban fracking, but clearly it's a pivot towards climate and I think certain more regulation around oil and gas from what you know of the technology and the developer and the markets because the market drives it is well with the prices. Is this. Sooner or later they were gonna have a fundamental shift away from fossil fuels. I think it's an evolution that's going on. I think you mentioned electric power, and I was recently with a bunch of gay leaders of the electric power industry. They do look to be net zero Carbon by 2035 2040 many of them and moving that direction, Other parts of it, I think it it evolves over time 280 million cars in the United States about 207 9 million running gassing and I don't think people going to throw away their cars. So I think it's this is a longer evolution, and I think there's what happens in the US, but the US remembers only 15% of 02 emissions. China's twice that India. Other emerging markets are looking towards commercial energy to get away from burning wouldn't waste in people's houses with health consequences. So I think this is something that unfolds time directionally where it's going, That's clear. Directionally. The timing really matters and the bets could be rather substantial..

"Healthcare under the Trump administration, Dan Great to have you back on the show. Tansy. Anna, How are you? I'm well, thanks and also on the line. We have Dr Howard Co former assistant secretary for health into the Obama administration and a professor at the Harvard Teach Chance School of Public Health. Dr Ko Thanks for joining us Thanks so much. Dan. The White House says it wants to streamline data gathering. Tell us why they say they want to direct access to this data from hospitals, bypassing the CDC. Is it about streamlining? I think that is a legitimate explanation Tansy. And more than three months ago, the Trump Administration gave hospitals a choice of where to submit data about the Corona virus to their state. They could submit it to an outside vendor where they could submit it to the CDC, his own long running network. Of health care information. But inside the administration that patchwork response of different submission process he's led to data gaps have led to some confusion and, frankly, some hospitals found That confusing two and asked for more simplified process. The Trump Administration behind the scenes has been going back and forth with the CDC over what its data system could collect. CBC was given a new mandate to provide more data. Senior officials there said. They couldn't do it on the timeline that the Trump administration wanted. So about 10 days ago, the administration said they were going to simplify the process. Hospitals did not need to Report data just to the CDC O R report tiu the CDC anymore at all but needed to keep reporting data to these other vendors, and that announcement has sparked A wave of concern that the Trump administration by going around the CDC, public health experts wouldn't have access to the data or worse, that the White House would find ways to modify it. Dr Cho. You have been directly involved with these organizations. Can you give us a sense for how your assessment of the Trump Administration's decision to essentially bypassed the CDC and historically whether or not that's how data has flown Flowed, I should say from hospitals. Well. The CDC is the premiere Public Health agency in the country and one of the premier public health agencies in the world. In a time of public health crisis. We always rely on the CDC for data collection analysis, guidance in coordination off a response. A cz. You have already noted through this pandemic, which is at six months and counting. There have been a number of instances where the CDC has been sidelined, or even, frankly bypassed so. In a time of a pandemic. It's critically important to tryto update data collection and streamline it. As Dan has described. That's a legitimate Issue, but to do it so abruptly And in such a surprising fashion has raised so many questions about access availability, transparency, accountability. This is, unfortunately yet another example with a so much confusion about what National response can and should be. We really need in this time of crisis, with the pandemic spinning out of control, too. Unify our efforts as a nation going forward, and that means putting the CDC front and center Well, Apparently, that doesn't seem to be happening here, Dan. I'm wondering if you could give us a sense about this. These fissures and this tension between the CDC on the Agency for Health and Human Services and the White House. When did we start to begin to see tensions? Was it at the very beginning of the pandemic response? It was quite early tens. You know, the Trump Administration soured on the CDC months ago for a number of reasons. I think first, it's important for listeners to know the CDC is not lead. Overwhelmingly by political appointees. I'm here in Washington, D. C. This is where the headquarters of the Health department is located. The CDC is down in Atlanta. Historically, there have only been a few political appointees who are sent down to administer the agency of the director, obviously, and a few other Senior folks, but it is dominated by career scientists in those career. Scientists early in the outbreak were issuing warnings that were at times more dire than the warnings of the White House itself. Wanted to put out and that created some public consternation with messages, not a line between the CDC and the health Department. HHS But also the president and the White House were concerned that the messages were too dire. To severe at a point in the outbreak, where the White House did not want that message that the coronavirus could be as deadly as it turned out to be reaching the American public. At the same time, the CDC did mess up early in the response. There was a responsibility by the CDC. To get testing out to public health laboratories around the country. Those tests were flawed as we came to learn, and that's one reason why we were caught flat footed and did not have visibility into the Corona virus spread. Across February and into March wasn't the only reason but it was a very big reason and combined with those factors, I think the director of the CDC again a political appointee, a man named Robert Redfield. Is why we seen inside the Trump administration as a fairly weak leader, someone who is not skilled in the bureaucratic infighting and especially the vicious infighting that marks the Trump administration. So when leaders are around the table in the White House, arguing for their various portfolios, he is not the most effective leader compared to some of his rivals, representing either parts of the health department like HHS or other parts of the administration, like the economic branch. It has come to define so much of the past few weeks of the White House response, Doctor Cho. I'd love to get your thoughts They're on. CDC Director Red Feld, who has not to dance point been particularly visible during the crisis. Really it all you published an op ed in CNN on Friday calling for MME. Or You want to see more daily briefings and you want to see the public health experts at the forefront, but We do have a Corona virus taskforce. Tell us what you think about Redfield sort of low profile and whether the Corona virus taskforce is actually doing what it's what you're asking to be done here. Well in the early days of the pandemic. We had daily briefings in the White House Coronavirus task force, Even though those were far from perfect. It was a way for the American public to hear daily from our Government leaders about the status of the pandemic, The trends, the evolving science and what we needed to do to protect ourselves going forward, as we all know, we have not heard from that task force publicly in briefings in quite a while. Oh, and in my view, we need to restart those immediately and show the American people that our nation is tackling this. Pandemic of our lifetime head on and it needs to feature top Public health officials. Dr Fauci, of course, should be front and center. Dr. Redfield is a very respected scientist. He has been low profile, but he needs to be more front and center right now. And he also represents thousands of CDC professionals who have tackled issues like Ebola and Zika and H one n one when I was there in 2009 is assistant secretary I work closely with the CDC on that major challenge. So this is a time where we need More coordination, more leadership from the White House Corona virus Task force and putting the CDC director and Dr Fauci back in the centre of communication going forward. Dr Cho. Are you concerned about the fact that this data at least as I understand it will not be made available to the public. We need that information, transparent. Immediately and there's again as Dan has pointed out lots of questions about Exactly what the motivations were for this change and how it's going to roll out. We need transparency. We need accountability, and the data right now are going in the wrong direction. That's disturbing for everybody. But Way to respond. Is that too? Unveiled this head on and show the American public that we are confronting this issue as a nation and as a public health community right now, there is no public attention to this through a daily briefing. Then we hear from our health officials and only scattered fashion and that's not the way to do it. We are seeing a challenge of our lifetime. Our country is in the public health fight of our lifetime. With the start by looking at the data and then looking at the information and then formulating guidance and committing it communicating its American people so we can get this price is behind us. Dan. Last week, former heads of the CDC wrote an op ed in the Washington Post that.

Now more than 50 nights of protests and new reports of unidentified federal troops making arrest all that is coming up. But we start with the fight against Cove in 19. According to the Johns Hopkins Corona Virus Resource Center. There are now more than 3.7 million cases of covert 19 in the United States, and so far more than 140,000 people have died. Since the beginning of the pandemic, federal agencies have been split on how to stop the spread of the virus. And last week that division reached a fever pitch. The Trump Administration ordered hospitals to begin reporting covert 19 data directly to the Department of Health and Human Services. Bypassing the Centers for Disease control. And although the CDC has continued to publish recommendations to stop the spread of the virus, Trump administration has implicitly and explicitly to five the CDC recommendations. For example, it wasn't until last week that the president was first seen wearing a mask in public, which has been proven to help mitigate the spread of the virus. Divisions between the White House and the CDC and how they've shaped the direction of the pandemic is where we start today. For more.

"Ever saw. It's pretty easy and most of the US on a daily basis or cloud based. You know they're. They're in the browser like all my adobe. APPS are almost identical. They're not much different than the Mac the maps. You Browse on the Internet. It's the same thing. Obviously the settings take some getting used to, but you figured all out and I've I've honestly had no problem accusers since I was fourteen. And I just switched in November. Hasn't been that big a deal, so that's my story. Well the intellectual stuff because those of you watching that dam was on the experts summit. Debate Forum I'm actually on their twitter page right now. And I noticed one of my former teammates damn Hennigan shutout Dan Yuppies. Yup Yeah was he the moderator? No, he's been more like the behind the scenes. He's been helping them like at the website and doing a lot of tech stuff. He's been helping us. He's he's been integral in the process, but he's not like the the frontman. Dan Great Great Guy Former, somerset patriots, but so our own. Dan Blew it went on there, and while accounts absolutely destroyed his competition. If I if I do say so paraphrasing their tweets, not mine but Dan. How did that go yesterday? Yeah I guess that's back backyard. Everyone that knew me that was watching. It basically said the same thing. They're like well. Yeah, you obviously one by a lot. I know I just saw the questions were the first one was? What's really important about strength training? should pitchers, or which is more important, should should. Be Trying to get a strong as possible or should they be doing more like hit your specific kind of exercises, so we talked a lot about strength training, general and how? Pitches are athletes I and I talked about how you need to sort of prioritize and. Fill different buckets, so if you're already pretty big and strong, then you can start to do more power training, and all this other stuff and basically just. My overall point was here a bunch of things. You should actually be doing the real world if you're a coach or player listening to this debate right now. These are actually things that you should be thinking about as a parent. And as an athlete and and most kids just need to continue to get bigger and stronger for a long time, right? The question of should you just try to get as big as possible? The answer is like a hundred percent. Yes, you're like actually like a fully built dude. Would you agree with that I? Totally agree probably if you're a youth player, you're probably not nearly as big as you need to be. Our no one is. I mean big big has a couple of different context. Obviously, but you're. You're usually undersized as high school or even athletes, so yes, gain weight, get stronger. Those are very good tips. We have for sure and. And it comes back to the period ization model so period ization for those of you. Listening is sort of the way you program out, so you? You do it in different periods period. So typically the linear period ization model is you SORTA. Verse Your General Preparedness So like you do lots of different stuff to get your whole body sort of in shape, then you start to lift for muscle size, which is hype. hypertrophy sounds like three sets of twelve. That's builds your size more than when you start you a little bigger. You switch to power which is like five sets of five five zero to three heavier weights that make you stronger. But often don't have the same effective building. Your muscles sizes big so bodybuilders stay in the hypertrophy rep much much more like most of their life because they're trying to get big muscles. Whereas powerlifters stay in the power range lot more, and you can like flow between the two, but in general, that's the linear period. Ization goes you get into shape. You get bigger. You get stronger and then you get more explosive so at the very end like preseason, you'd go to a power a speed phase. And so you're trying to apply the power that you've the strength. You built as fast as you can, so. That is a that's the standard. That's not really what you'd want. WanNa do for a high school athlete who just needs to get bigger? He might stay in the hypertrophied phase for the most part for like four years. And you'd undulated undulate the, but he might not be doing three by ten every week. It might be like four sets a ten or forces at twelve and five sets of eight one week and he might. You're GONNA switch exercises. You'RE GONNA. Do Lots of other things to continue to stimulate? Growth Because, you can't just stagnate to the same workout for four years in a row. Obviously, but but most kids are like if you need hypertrophied, there's no good reason that we're going to be jumping around doing ply metrics all the time. When you're one hundred forty pounds, so that was another just central point, but anyway so the middle question in the debate was. Season versus off season training. And how is it different? How can a compliment throwing program? And again just gave a lot of tips about. You know in season training is really hard for pitchers. It's super complicated because you're tired. You don't WanNa. Get fatigued. You want to keep your healthy. You want to stay fresh for for games, but had you do that. You. Know and so you should you be doing like less weight, but still lots of reps in the weight room, which is actually counterintuitive. That's now you. WanNa. Do you really rather be doing heavier lifts? For shorter wraps as like a five Sega's. You could squat three hundred pounds five times. You would take that three hundred pounds in the season and do maybe five sets of two reps with it. So it's a way you could. You could lift five times, but you're only do twice because it really stimulates your body. It makes it work really hard. Recruiting a lot of muscle fiber, because it's heavy, but you're only doing it twice when you could do three extra reps from that, and so then it keeps your muscles size up. It tells your body. Don't don't start to atrophy because we still are lifting heavy weights, but you're not going to fatigue. You're not going to exhaustion with these really heavyweights, or then you start to get tired for your game, so that's typically the way you do it. You tend to do more of that because your goal. Is this slow decline. Of your strength over the season because it's a slow decline for everybody. So we just went through a lot of that stuff in the last question was. Should kids be allowed to call their own game and I just went into super rant mode so so yeah. which is awesome. Well good nothing like a good rant to bring it home. You know well those of you. Those of you that I've listened Dan rant on this podcast. Know that he does not want your kids. getting pitch called by the coach. For developmental reasons specifically. That needs to be stressed. That needs to be stressed. And I, still just there's so many reasons. I have long youtube video about this. So if you WANNA listen to me, bore you about pitch calling some more Jeremiah Youtube Channel but. It just it just makes more sense to let kids do it and just talked to him. Teach the CATCHER's teeth. The pitchers teaching what to look for and then let them do it it. Don't coach aren't getting better Intel from the DUGOUT. Even if you're, you could definitely call a better game. I could for my fifteen. You players. Obviously I would call a better game for them. I still don't like might. You doesn't need to be in that transaction. Mekong a better game is GonNa make us win the game. You'RE GONNA win a game on so many other factors more than pitch calling. Like get a six runs far. pitcher Dennis doesn't walk more than three batters throw strikes and competes probably. Whether I call the picture you know. Donkey calls the pitches, or we get a Bingo machine and call the pitches. Put them as donkey calling bitches, no literal literal donkey like we make some system where a donkey. Just like if it eats me, maybe give them three buckets, and on every pitch beats out of this bucket that it's a fastball eats out of that buckets occur, but whatever donkey system just straight up curveball curve ball game for the donkey today Yeah Yeah, just eleven balls in a row whatever?.

Why drug costs are top issue for South Carolina voters
"The twenty twenty race is barreling ahead South Carolina's primaries on Saturday Super Tuesday less than a week away. There are eight. Twenty twenty presidential democratic hopefuls remaining and each of them is angling for a way to stand out fast but the front runner has come to dominate this race and his signature policy has come to dominate the national discussion on Healthcare. Medicare for all Medicare for Medicare for all Medicare for all healthcare system that guarantees healthcare to all people in a cost effective way. Which is what Medicare for all is. That's Bernie Sanders. Of course the Democratic senator from Vermont Democratic Front runner and probably know policy proposal has marked this election more than Bernie Sanders Medicare for all after a strong victory in Nevada Bernie Sanders emphasis on this trademark. Issue appears to have paid off. Democratic candidates agree on expanding health care coverage they're divided on how to ensure everyone weather to ensure everyone and of course how to pay for it. All so how are their plans similar? How are they different? And how do they all compare to any plans that might be put forward by their eventual opponent? President Donald Trump. We've been talking to the candidates one by one part of our own ongoing series foresight twenty twenty. And now we're branching out foresight twenty twenty the issues. It's a series all about where the candidates stand on. What really matters most to you the voter and today it's healthcare more specifically Medicare for all. Here helps out ratchet up predominant correspondent for Kaiser Health News. She covers healthcare all across America. Thanks for being here. Thank you know Levy is here. He's a national health care reporter for the L. A. Times. No one great to see you. Nice to be here and Dan. Diamond is here health reporter for politico and host of politicos pulse. Check podcast. Dan. Great to see you as well. Thanks for having me a Russian up before. We break down each of the candidates policies with a lot to talk about. We'll get to a lot of the details on medicare for all in what the different candidates say they favor here. Can you talk about? How significant health care is for voters as we head in this into this election. What are voters say about? The importance of healthcare to them so healthcare is definitely the top if not one of the top issues for voters regardless of party affiliation so lowering prescription drug costs very very popular among the public That has been true for years. They've been telling Congress they telling presidential candidates. We need to do something about the rising cost of drugs Please basically begging a few other things. Also there's a lot of widespread support. I think that people want to see the candidates Flush out plans on say they'll resolve So rising surprise medical bills dealing with the OPIOID crisis protecting protections for pre existing medical conditions. These are all things that voters really WANNA see. The candidates Expand upon us. They run from the. I used to be a healthcare reporter a younger man. There was a time when I could have been on your side of the table for this discussion. Healthcare was always one of the top issues. Voter said I care about healthcare. They said that in surveys but there was never any evidence that they actually voted on it that when they went into the into the ballot box in and and pulled the curtain even though they told a pollster they care about it whether that's what was driving their vote. It happened in election after election. And I think there are certain extent that's still Still the case because healthcare does mean different things to different people as an issue. Rosina's correct that that Democrats and Republicans have identified it as a top concern but to what extent or voters making their decision to vote for candidate X or candidate. Why based on healthcare. Probably not that much instead. I think probably the way to look at the healthcare issue in the Democrat. Republican divide is is it a proxy for The way that they evaluate president trump the Democratic nominee? The one exception I would say is Medicare for all which I think is playing a greater role in Democratic primary voters making a decision if you like Medicare for all sanders is probably your guy now. Medicare for all. Let's talk about it. It has important interactions with the way that most of us get our insurance right which is through work. I I WANNA say one hundred sixty one hundred and seventy million Americans get their insurance through work. It is the most common way and we got this call in our voice mail inbox. I'M KIARA FROM DENVER. I would gladly take Medicare for all over my employer sponsored insurance. They currently pay ten thousand dollars annually. When you add up premiums deductibles out of pocket expenses and that does not include vision or dental expenses whereas Medicare for all would be rolled into our taxes it would actually offset the cost already paying and then it would also expand cover dental and vision. I also feel like it's a great way to take care of your entire community and your nation as a whole which will make us all healthier and happier and I feel like it's a great way to create more freedom in the workplace where people are less afraid of beating their job. Just keep their benefits and people would have more choice in the providers. They see because they wouldn't have to choose a provider just solely based on who accepts their insurance. So Dan what is Medicare for all people have heard about Medicare? They probably know what that is. It's the government program for folks over sixty five and disabled people. Medicare's extremely popular. What does it mean when we say Medicare for all I think it depends which candidate is saying Medicare for all what does it mean to Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders would articulate a vision of Medicare for all? That's very similar to the vision. The caller just shared a program. That is universal single. Payer every American would be on this plan. As opposed to employer plan it would cover things beyond traditional Medicare. So it's not strictly speaking the Medicare that my grandparents my parents might might know in love. It would also have new power to negotiate with the private sector to lower drug prices by putting government emphasis behind that and cut out the administrative overhead and bureaucracy that helps contribute to cost going up in America at the same time. That plan is dramatic and expensive and all the things that Republicans are poised to seize on and many Americans also say they're worried about too. So there's there's give and take with Medicare for all. It would be the big elephant in the room right. It would have the ability to go to medical providers hospitals drug companies and say we are the only game in town. You'RE GONNA drive those prices down but also we've heard cost estimates in the trillions because it is a massive government entitlement Bernie Sanders himself has referenced thirty trillion dollars over a decade in paying for Medicare for all his campaign sanders himself have come out with different proposals to defray that cost. But if you actually look at what the Sanders campaign has offered. It hasn't added up to more than about half of that thirty trillion dollars. Some would say that that doesn't matter the. Us pays for all kinds of things that aren't as positive as medicare for all. His supporters are point to the Iraq war and. Us didn't necessarily look for the pay. Fors before heading off on on that misadventure. But I do think that these are the issues that Congress will have to grapple with now Rochester other candidates talk about a public option or some of them talking about not Medicare for all but may be more people can buy into Medicare be part of Medicare. Even if you're not sixty five or public option means something else right. So the public option is the approach. That is Sort of being pursued by the more moderate wing if you will of the current Democratic presidential Field so Joe Biden p Buddha Judge Mike Bloomberg. They're all amy. Klobuchar are among the candidates. That are saying we would set up a government run insurance option that people could buy into essentially but a lot of the existing programs that currently provide health insurance to people. So job is coverage as you said. the Medicaid program Medicare those would continue to exist The public option the proponents of it. Want to push that as a way to say look. We don't WanNa rip up the whole system. We don't need to start from scratch. Here's a way to build on what we have and not cause as much disruption as Medicare for all would inevitably Pursue Dan avoiding disruption is great but it also means you don't insure as many people that's the trade off that supporters of Bernie Sanders and to some extent Elizabeth. Warren say it's not worth. Do there needs to be bold action? I JUST WANNA call out. Todd how fast we have moved on this debate Russia and I used to work together at politico we worked on a story for years ago about Hillary Clinton supporting public option and at the time her campaign was not keen to call attention to that we have moved to a world where that is now the moderate choice and go a couple of years before that the debate over Obamacare the affordable care act in Congress. The public option at that time was the high watermark for Barack Obama. Trying to get it through the Senate and he couldn't even get that that's why you have no public option under the right
"dan great" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac
"Dan Great to be back talking about Carl's ninety leak. It is good to be back talking about that. Let's jump right into what's happening now. There are players. Here's down on the fields. In Jupiter with instructional camp would use to be held right after the season but they felt and I think it's a smart move guys are worn out. They they were tired probably wanted to go home. Maybe some homesick and They said look. Let's scrap that. Maybe we get better attention to detail. Maybe we get better teaching if if we hold this right before spring training. And that's what they're doing right now aren't they. That's right. This is the third year of the cardinals. Instructional camp having been moved from September to January. Two weeks Going on now. The first couple of weeks of the year the four weeks of the year with thirty seven players down in Jupiter. I will mention though to a point. You made another another reason why they wanted to change. This was that a number of the players are still working on their college education. And by having instructional camp in September that precludes them from from being able to take classes in the fall term so by having this camp in January. You know those young men who still finishing their college education can get a fall term in and that's the primary reason reason it's another factor because we have to remember the cardinals draft a number of high school players. A number of these players signed after their junior year of college and they still may need another twenty twenty five hours of classes to before they get their important degree which is going to help them of course and the rest of their lives after their playing days are done. Yeah absolutely a lot of people I think are curious about what what instructional camp. What is that? WHO's on the field? Is Mike Scheldt there. Well let's go through that. What is instructional camp for those? That don't know well. It's basically hands on a much more hands on basis of Education and training for a group of players. They typically have classroom INFO classroom information and studying in the morning and then in the afternoon they get out on the field for For individual instructions with the roving instruction works for the system some of the managers some of the coaches and as you mentioned and they're focusing primarily at fundamentals. There aren't any games. The pictures of course are still just ramping up. So there's mostly pitcher's throwing bullpens more often than not it's coaches throwing batting practice Rather than pitchers But the idea is to give these young players Some focus on fundamentals. And let's start and to the point you made before The major league coaches are going to be in Jupiter next week. And they're GONNA be doing they're planning for Major Angelique Spring training camp and so that gives my show and and all you know all the coaches a chance to move over to the backfield's in the afternoon and then get a look at some of these young players so you know last year saw really all the major league coaches Around at different times during instructional camp you know getting a sneak peek at the at these thirty seven when young players brought floor. Yeah I find it really interesting with the guys that are down there. And it's not like every single minor leaguers down there. How do you get selected for the Instructional Cam? Well of course the cars don't say you know what their formulas but I do a lot of analysis of course of the backgrounds of the players and typically they're either players who are emerging urging or maybe some players who might have had injuries last year that they want to you know get them A moving a little ahead. It's not just the players on short season club so I stayed college Johnson City while there's a few of those actually you know the sweet spot of the the group of players are more like the class a high class. I say Along with the number players with Springfield and even some would memphis experience so really. It's kind of a kind of a mixed bag but the names are players that you recognize from Name brand guys like Gorman Malcolm Nunez down to some some lesser names including one young man Picture named Angel Klinka probably on health. Linka who I've not seen it because he pitched in the Dominican Summer League last summer. So we're talking about a young man who's been brought over to the United States. You know for his first I action in the US in this You know highly competitive but highly exclusive instructional camp so I can't just a wide variety of experiences of the players there. I'm also curious because year after year. Now the major league players are getting down there And many of them are already there right now in some of them have bought homes homes down there so they can get there and train well before spring training gets there. I'm curious how many of those guys make their way onto the field. Either to make a speech or go one one on one with a young prospect and talk to a kid and try to encourage them and tell them hey this is what it takes to make it to the big leagues. Well well I can tell you the last year I saw out here Molina there. Of course he has a winter home in the area so miles. Michael is there As well as a number of the you know the former former players who were involved in coaching roles players like Braden looper and Ryan Ludwig. So they're definitely yeah a number of Of players in former coaches around who can provide advice and counsel to these to these young players in structural care yesterday. The cardinals did make a little bit of news. They signed Oscar Hernandez he is a catcher. Does have big league experience number one. What do you think that means for Andrew Kisner and Matt leaders number two and and we'll get it well? Let's answer that. What do you think it means for those two guys? I don't really think it means a lot I think the cardinals wanting leaders back But like last year apparently his market is slow to develop. And so. I think everybody's waiting to see what's GonNa Happen. And if he falls back in the car's lap I'm sure they'd be delighted to have him back but it's going to be you know again on a one year deal at some reasonable reasonable money your Matt leaders former all star. You know. It was definitely did a good job for the cardinals left handed bat last year. You know he's probably looking to a place where maybe he can get a little more playing time than being behind you out of here. Molina which you know as everyone knows plays every day that he possibly possibly can so this doesn't preclude leaders return the signing of Oscar Hernandez really what it does is. It gives the cardinals another veteran guy on a minor league deal. Not Unlike Joe Hudson you know folks may have remembered last year was around and the cardinals always you know have these journeymen catchers Opinion was the guy before that you know who who are around and they can put in triple a. provided more experience if needed now the real question which none of us know the answer to. Is You know where the cardinals feel. Andrew Kisner defenses. This do they feel these defense is good enough that they can afford to have him basically sit out in the bullpen and warm up pitchers and Saint Louis or do they want him to continue to play every day A. and Memphis and it sort of looks like maybe the play every day in Memphis might be the preferred approach certainly if they bring leaders back That would be the approach Roach and now with the case of ours Hernandez they you know. They have an opportunity to go that way. If they so choose now never point to note Oscar Hernandez was on a minor league contract. So if they were to to you know have him on the team he would you know have to be added to the forty man roster but there's always ways to to move that around so that won't be a big factor actor. I think the big question will be. You know. We'll we'll we'll leaders come back and you know where to the cardinals really feel Andrew because there's Catching is and whether they I think you know. Another year in Memphis will be the best answer for his develop. Yeah you took me right to the second part of that question I was going to ask you Before which is where do you think his nerves is defensively is he a major league. Catcher is a major league. Backup catcher. Defensively is he a twenty six man roster guy where do you think he is with all those those options questions surrounding going into spring. I don't think anybody least. Nobody I've talked to has said they believe Andrew Kisner the finished product meaning that that he couldn't continue to grow and to get better so the question of the twenty six is an interesting one because with that extra spot on the roster you know if if leaders came back for example what they could easily do is have Kisner as the third catcher. Therefore you use leaders as a left handed pinch hitter and and he's still have kids that are in reserve if me was hurt late in the game or something so you know. They're still might be flexibility. Even you know to have three catchers on the roster and again I just to go back original point I think Oscar Hernandez is nothing more than a low price insurance policy at this point. You know. They'll probably keep him around. But you know there's not it's not outside the impossibility that if everybody's healthy. Everybody thinks things are going. Well they they you know they might even let him go not indicate.

I don't care if you're talking about College Football Basketball Baseball Major League baseball all the NBA. Whatever it's consistency consistency with your coaching staff consistency with your front office and ownership cardinals have that and they have consistency right now with their minor league managers? They made the announcement a couple of days ago. Seven of the nine minor league managers will return in twenty twenty. That's again and again you know it makes sense given an instructional camp is open You know a number of these coaches are down in coaches and managers are down and Jupiter working so they you know pretty well got their systems lined up a couple of TVD's but you know all the managers is you set are in place and most of them are coming back One of the changes inches is at golf city. Scarring at the Gulf Coast League where Joey Hawkins who was a former minor league. INFIELDER came back with a coach hitting coach last year. Now now he's GonNa be a new manager there but the names that everybody knows you know from the top Ben Johnson Memphis joke rusel Springfield Damigella Palm Beach Erica. Monte Jose Roberto Espinosa Spinoza who led Johnson city to a title last year. So all those guys are back. And that's great on the pitching side a lot of stability as well pitching coach side One new person listen to join the organization. This state colleges new pitching coach Dean Kika for who folks may remember was a left handed reliever for the cardinals left a few years ago. You know. Continue to bounce around get a little bit of major major league action here and there but do you think they're seeing a number of organizations now and he's decided it isn't extent is coaching and so he's the new pitching coach at State College now on the hitting coach side just as we talked about stability in management in the hitting coach side pretty much. Everybody's changed chairs. But again I think the top five or six hitting coach's while they're all in new assignments were in the organization previously but then at the lower levels there are four or five new hitting coaches who've been brought in and I think what we're seeing here is sort of you know year two of the of the new kidding regime that the cardinals have a new Minor League hitting coordinator and Rothstein.

"Listen. Hey, Dan, great to have you. Hey, it's good to be here. So we have been talking about eating outside this whole hour, and I have come to you for a guide to grilling. I know that you have many opinions, and you guys have done a lot of research on this one. So I kind of want to start with some of the mistakes that people make when they're grilling. And I am wondering if you can kind of lead us through some of those sure thing do you, do you have specific questions or you want to talk about some common mistakes? Let's talk about some common mistakes. And then I do have a few issues of my own. I'd like to clear up. All right. So I think what happens is a lot of people the only grill when it's warm out. So a whole year goes by, and then they fall into some bad habits or never really knew to start with kind of best practices. And so there's a few places that, you know, it's, it's not hard to do it. Right. But it's easy to go wrong. So I think the first one is if you're using a charcoal grill, and you want to get it lit really quickly, which a lot of. People do a lot of people reach for lighter fluid, and it seems like a good option. You spray it on the coals it, you had a big old, ball flames, and it's but when we've done tests with using lighter fluid, and using the self starting charcoal and we actually find that a lot of it burns off. But you can get some residual flavor especially if you're cooking, some really mild tasting food on there that you can get some residual flavor from it. So we really recommend moving away from lighter fluid, and there's another great option out there and it's using a chimney starter. So these are find them anywhere. Right. That's right. And they're not that expensive, and they last a really long time and the really great. And how do you know here's one of my questions is, how do you know, when the Coles are ready because I do use a chimney starter. Are they should they totally be white or their flames coming off the top? So yeah, you shouldn't see any flames anymore. You'll see flames early in the process, and lots of smoke. And that will subside. And then when they're ready to go, they should have a lie. Dusting white hash over the top to wait. Yeah. If they're still black, then they're not quite ready that light coating bashing you'll see that they'll sink down a little bit. Into the chimney. That's when they're ready to go if you'd up earlier, you do potentially risk the fire going out or just not heating very evenly. So you want a light of Sean top, and you're ready to go. Okay. Can you walk us through kind of general fire setup? Yes. So we generally use three different setups, when we're really when we're talking about either charcoal or gas, there's kind of an analogy between the two but so let's start with charcoal and the three setups are a single level fire. And that's where we have the coals port over the entire surface, an even layer and that's really good for when you want to kind of char, and cook at the same time, so, you know, smaller pieces of food, like if you're a cooking sausages, or maybe boneless skinless chicken breasts where you're basically you're getting some good. You're on the outside, but you're also cooking through at a moderate rate. That's a single level fire. If you have a bigger piece of food where you need to cook, kind of gently to cook it all the way through the center, but you also want to do some searing and get some char. That would be a two level fire. So what you wanna do is poor the entire chimney into half of the grill. And so you have these two zones you have a very hot zone and you have a cool indirect zone so. You can do is start your bone in chicken breasts, on the on the cool side, nice and indirect heat cook them until they're almost all the way through. And then you simply move them over to the hot side, and kind of see her and char-, and that's a good technique for anything with the food is a little bit larger. And you need those two different heat levels. And then the final one is what we call our concentrated fire. And this is corralling the coals into a small area. Sometimes we use a disposable aluminum roasting pan, where we cut the bottom out of it just kind of a corral. And we put a full of coals right in that. And then we cooked directly over it, and this is where your cooking foods like steaks, and burgers, where you want a big disparity between the outside the inside. So for a steak we're looking for really good on the outside tons of char and the inside wants to be about one hundred twenty five degrees, or medium, rare. So we want that disparity, and that's a great technique, and tell me about the lid, when do you use the lid and went, don't you? Lid to the litter not to live. That's, that's a big question. When it comes to basic, but I really am stumped all the time. Yeah. No, it is a really good question, and it actually does matter. So if you're working on a gas grill, generally speaking, they don't have the output of charcoal grill. So we lot of times we recommend keeping the lid down when you're using a gas grill. I'm you never wanna light gas grill with the lid, down because he can trap gas in there and, and caused some some problems there. But so you want to light it with a lit open. But for the most part, when you're cooking with a gas grill, you want the lid to be down, and that's gonna make it a little bit hotter inside the actually. The opposite is really true when you're working with a charcoal grill because that's all about airflow. So if you have the lid off of a charcoal grill, a lot, more air rushing through there. So it's going to burn even hotter. So what you wanna do is if you're cooking, something, like a burger and steak where you again, wanna really hot fire, you want to cook with a lid off. If you are cooking something that is going to go lower, and slower, such as barbecue such as indirect for roasts that you're going to see her you want to cook with the lid on, so actually, the lid on in taco is actually slowing things down. Yes, exactly. The lid on with charcoal is slowing things down. And what that actually leads us into another good point is when you're working with charcoal, you have these grill vents and. How did you know? Oh, really? Yes. So I think a lot of people are confused as to what to do with these events. What they're four and they're really cool because they actually have a huge impact on the temperature of your grill as I mentioned, airflow is really what controls your fire with the charcoal grill. So if you have the grill vents and they're located on the bottom of the grill, and on the top if you have them completely open, you're getting more air through, and your grill will be hotter. If you start to close them down, maybe a halfway or three quarters of the way you will actually cool the fire down. If you close them all the way you risk actually putting the fire out because there's no more airflow, and you do have to clean out the from the bottom of the vent, I'm assuming then. Yes. So cleaning cleaning is a big thing, and definitely starts with that Ashby kit. If it's really, really jammed up in there, it's going to restrict airflow, definitely, you also, if you have a grease trap, in a gas grill, you want to actually open that up and look in there and make sure that it's cleaned out. If you have a lot of grease build up, and you have a fire in there, it can actually cause a big grease fire. That can be dangerous. And it's definitely inconvenient. Okay. That makes sense. I have a question about, you know, when you want something really charred when you cooking on at chuckle fire. I've seen people like squirt had oil bottles next to them kind of squirt the flames to get the flames up. Does that was that work? That's a dicey thing. Okay. There's a little bit of danger in that. And just, you know, you're putting oil on a fire, and it's very, very flammable, but be beyond that it's not really agreed idea a little bit of flare ups. We call it a flare up when you see a fire on a grill like that a little bit can be good. So if you have say a burger cooking over the coals and a little bit of fat, and juices strips down and sets off a tiny little flame, just a little one. That's actually vaporizing the oil and the juices. And a lot of that flavor can come up and actually stick back to the food, providing a lot of really nice grill flavor. So but that's a very, very small little flare up. We do have kind of a cool technique that I will mention. Where we're cooking a beef tenderloin and it's on the cooler side of of the grill. And then on the hotter side, we have one, a one or two pieces of bacon that we've kind of scrunched up on a skewer, and that's sitting over kind of just over the hotter side of the grill, and has that starts the cook and render you get those little drops of fat and juices that kind of flared up do provide a nice, kind of smoking is flavor to, to the tender line. But I would say that's the exception to the rule. That's a sneaky recipe. I'm so happy to be cooking outside again. Oh, me too. I've been waiting months and months for this. Thanks a lot. Thanks, dan. Sousa is editor in chief of Cook's illustrated, and you can find the recipe for Mojo marinated, skirt sake on our website, splendid table dot org.

And you don't want you tell kind a little bit about your story, and kind of what got you interested in the financial markets over the years since I went to college and graduate law school, I was just dabbling in buying selling stocks and trying to more manage my 4._0._1._K I went to law school, and I graduated law school. And then practiced law New York for twenty years, and way was while I was passing as an attorney that I was trying to manage some of my stock portfolio which wasn't really very big. I just bought the companies that I liked when I thought they might be sold them later, after they made money. Okay. But I didn't know how to read a chart, okay? And that's really what I wanted. So I found Online Trading Academy, and then I went to preview and then the three day, and then I became a student and then graduated from online training. Kademi. Absolutely. And we talk about education listeners. You know it's so import. You know, if you have money in the financial markets, you have a plan, you have an understanding of really what's going on. Because, you know, these people on the floor of the exchanges these professional traders, you know, they're making money every day. And, and the only thing that really separates you, you listeners, right now, from the people who are making money, consistently every day every week in the markets, is, you know, they have a financial education. They really understand how the financial markets work really what these banks and institutions are doing, and really Halley move the markets. And, you know, I tell everyone who walks through the door. You know, anyone can learn how to do this, you know, trading the skill it's not an academic subject. So we talk about trading investing in the financial markets, you know, a provide an excellent opportunity freely. Anyone out there has a little bit of money and a little bit of time to be able to get that money to really grow, and you can make it grow faster than what most people typically do you know, I'm sure a lot of listeners in a buy stock hold it for, you know, x amount of time or years. And you know you hope that winning. Need your money? You know, you have more money than when you put in. But that's not really a plan. I mean, you know, above my desk, my trading desk in my office in my house. You know, I might trading plan literally, you know taped to the wall. It's you know it's really my rules for getting in and out of the markets.

You know what can you expect to happen? I mean, are you just hoping are you one of these dreamers who just bought Uber the other week when it's hype yo came out and came crashing down? I hope not. But I've seen those people in class already kind of get rich quick thing by IPO's, but, you know, you can make money consistently in the markets.

"Station. Newsradio KFC K in Sacramento, California. Very very controversial. I guess non charging of two police officers from Sacramento, John McGuinness. I ca I set it straight. And I obviously you could tell it didn't take my meds today. And I do apologize for that. And John great to hear from you. Good to be with you, again, NFL great great to be with you, Dan. Thank you. I've been checking the local news in Sacramento, and again, this is a very controversial shooting. I we're coming up on a year. I think on the eighteenth of March. And it's there are so many different variables here and nuances to the story, which is a two officers responding to a nine one one call young man breaking out windows with bricks clearly despondent as articulated by the district attorney last night. There's other. Aggravating circumstances here as well. The art and square mall was shut down on fair. I'm sorry. I didn't fair mall was shut down today. Is there any unrest? Anything that? You're hearing from your colleagues and again, former Sacramento county sheriff John McGuinness joins us today. John, thanks for your time. Go right ahead with my my pleasure. Dan, great to be with you in the short answer is as of now. No there are some some gatherings. There is certainly some disappointment expressing frustration express. As to the decision the district attorney. But very, frankly, I in terms of the controversy associated with this, especially with the benefit of all the evidence. She shared yesterday. She's done is to say she and Marie Schubert. The district attorney. Not much controversy about this. If you look at it from a legal objective legal point of view, as you know. Well, the the law affords the the right for Milan, Forsman officers, and frankly, everyone it largely to use deadly force when that person using deadly force can articulate a reasonable fear imminent threat of great bodily injury or death to themselves or some other innocent person. And in this particular case, all of the evidence that which was incredibly well, laid out by the district attorney. She did a phenomenal job of setting the entire stage to give the the the the listener the reviewer the benefit of all the information and somewhat chronological sequence as to how things came into focus. This is a man who who by the way. But let's be candid he was. He was not a sweetheart. He was not a prince of young, man. He's twenty two years of age already had amassed a rather substantial felony record to include robbery. That I remember that is not the same as staff does, you know, but this is taking a property from the person of another force or fear. So it was a violent violent criminal background domestic violence. Inflicting corporal injury on the mother of his children, and then pimping and pandering actually working his the mother of his children as a prostitute felony crimes. Tony convection on that and multiple other violent crimes drug crimes and other things along the line. So this is an is relatively short life. He had a massive criminal history on this particular occasion. We now know that that he was very despondent over a recent contemporary domestic violence incident an incident in which is the mother of his children laid out a scenario in which he was implicated for violently assaulting her yet again and battering her yet again in a manner that not only violated the fundamentals of the law, but it also violated the terms of his probation. So he was looking at the likely. The hood of confinement in custody for a protracted period of time. Now, this the guy who frankly should have been in custody already because of his criminal background that didn't happen. And so on this occasion. He had researched best ways to kill yourself using Xanax as a means by which to to take your life. He he actually sent a photograph of a ten Xanax tablets in his hand to his the mother of his children and made a threat or a suggestion that he was going to end his life to which she responded in terms that I can't us on the air. Yup. Basically, she didn't care. She didn't give a care. Opportunity. Yeah. So that's that's what we have going into all of this. Now, what did he do? This is a term that. I had hated since the first time I've heard it. I've actually vowed to never use it. But I think it applies here. There's no way to go around it. I believe that he engaged in an act of suicide by cop, which again, I don't like it because if a person chooses to commit suicide, they use an inanimate object, or or method of some kind of does not involve a human being a person, they use the drug overdose blade a gun carbon monoxide, whatever the case may be but to actually objectify human being by saying that you're going to kill yourself by by by means of encouraging another person to take your life. And then put them in a position law enforcement officer, notwithstanding where they had to live with the the results of that in their mind and deal with the kind of horror that these folks have had to deal with the last year is reprehensible nonetheless, it looks very much to me as though that was the set of circumstances that played out that was the motivating factor for this. We know now know now that he. He he had vandalized cars. And of course, when you hear that term smashing car windows. The the reason to do that typically is to steal the the contents of the car. Well, he didn't do that he stole nothing. He simply broke out car windows, actually took a security great off a window and use that as a means by which to smash out car windows in the neighborhood. Why would you do that? He drew the the. He got the nine one one call that he wanted. I mean, that's exactly precisely he he he lured the predictable responsive law enforcement, and then put himself in a position where he had a cell phone that he frankly brandished as a weapon, and that's not just the district attorney's opinion it. It's it's supported by. Evidence from the video out of evidence from the helicopter where you can actually see. He's he's standing in a position consistent with a shooting stance holding something in his hand, and you can actually see in a still shot provided by the district. Attorney a flash suggesting that he used that phone somehow to cause a flash of light to occur. He drew them in they engage in absolutely predictable behavior from their background experience training and education that they recognize an imminent threat to their safety, or what appeared to be and took the course of action at any reasonable person would expect. I am listening to some of the statements from the mayor of Sacramento, and the you. Yup. I can tell already. I could tell it seems to me that that the the public. The community activists the public politician, the the media personality, they seem to be demanding more attention and projecting more outrage than the actual rest of the community. He seems who seemed to know the truth and. You're absolutely correct. The mayor has been I think very reckless in his comments over the last several hours. I don't know if obviously you have an I could not agree more. And there's a there's proposed legislation the California assembly last year that would have changed the standard. In terms of when a police officer may use deadly force from reasonable, which it has been as far back as I'm aware of. I think it goes back through turn common-law. Yup. When a along Forsman officer can articulate a reasonable threat to their safety and acting a this consistent and reasonable as evidenced by the fact that other officers would be inclined to react in the same way. Then that is literally the definition of the authorization the authority the legal right to use deadly force. The the goal on the part of the California legislature. Whenever in particular has drafted this with support from others is to change that standard from reasonable to necessary. Well, first blush on that, you think shouldn't suit somebody unless it's necessary that doesn't sound so unreasonable, but you have to look at with that really truly means in this encounter, for example. Now, remember, this is a this is a young man in a in a lower socioeconomic relatively high crime area where people. Are more reliant frankly upon the police, and they are in some of the wealthier suburban communities. That's that's literally their life's blood. That's what keeps people alive and safe and any hope for commerce to exist is the presence of law enforcement when people see unlawful activity as was the case in in the behavior of stuff on Clark. They call the police the expectations at the place will respond and that they will. Put forth reasonable energy and effort to tie dentistry. The person locate them and bring them to Justice certainly to stop their their destructive behavior. If if this Bill becomes law, and the the standard is necessary that you have to have the necessity to use deadly force, then in this case, and it would the suggestion with and the council to any reasonable on force. Officer would be do not chase this person. Right. Because if you do you may find yourself in a position where he may bring harm to you. Or some other innocent person they may take hostages now. Remember, he broke out the rear sliding door close fighting glass door of a home that was not his family's home. It was a neighbor's home occupied by an eighty six year old man. So you want the police to simply let that go to let him. Comeback. Well, despite w. Wouldn't this by definition, John really neutralized the common law right of inquiry by the constable? I mean, in other words, don't lose your job at all. Absolutely. Whenever percent it. Also, I think the bigger challenge they'll have to this. And my my concern is that it may very well become law in California. The bigger challenge will come after in all probability some law enforcement officers prosecuted, but but you violate the constitution specifically equal protection under the law. So that. The members of the community would have greater authority to use deadly force in protection themselves or some other innocent person based about reasonableness now law enforcement officer who was dispatched into harm's way to protect people, and that just doesn't doesn't cut constitutional muster you, and I are contemporaries as far as the nineteen eighties and a forward. I I would suggest that for the folks have worked in a in a busy place like Sacramento like Milwaukee like Chicago. The borough Brooklyn and the Bronx where you where the vast majority of the people who live in these communities are good people who want to go to work every day who want to live safely every day. And those are the people where you gonna the energy to keep doing your job. And and it seems like the politician is no longer representing the law abiding citizen anymore. They're there representing the media and the and the the flesh if you would absolutely believe that to be true. And I also this is where I am perplexed. Frankly, because my sense is that the average member of the community is more inclined to support an appreciate the police then the elected leadership than the people that they put in office..
