"Did you come? I was like I got an idea. Let's put a bunch of sick people in a a home for a nursing home or elderly People reside who are very susceptible of core advice. Let's put them in there. I mean, what could happen What could happen? Tens of thousands of people could die, and that's what did happen. The alternate reality they live in is destroying this country, ripping it apart by the threads every single day because we can't agree on a common set backs. So, as I said before the break The other myth, the media and liberals promoted, which made people made really stooped this stupid decision. Police were the enemy, which led to de funding.

Who will be Seattle's next mayor?
"Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin's is the city has further delayed the search for a new police chief. We get the report from Cuomo's Patrick Quinn. There's no search planned at this moment in time. Adrian DS took over for Carmen best after she suddenly retired amid the de funding budget battle plan was to hire a new police chief after the budget cycle and in the new year Now the mayor tells me they could wait until potentially After she leaves office. I'm continuing to have conversations with the City Council on that. I think that everyone's evaluation right now is the chief search would not be successful. On gets an important of thing, and we are. It is such a critical juncture with our police department. We want to make sure that when we do it, we do it right and we do it successfully. Durkin's last day as mayor is December 31st who will replace her. The list is growing. Do you think the next mayor could come from City Hall? I think that voters will make a very different calculation in this election than before. I think that bumper stickers and slogans are not going to cut it, Dirk and said one focusing on the future. Many voters may look to the past, searching for answers to lingering questions. Seattle labored through this summer, and they're gonna want concrete answers on things like Will you cut the police by 50%? Will you make sure there's more mental health care providers? What are you going to do about the crime rates? Because when people come out of covert It's

Biden opens 'Obamacare' window for uninsured as COVID rages
"President by sign two executive orders. That were focused on healthcare. He stressed that he wasn't making any new laws or rules. That hadn't been in place before he was just taking things back to how they were before. Trump started messing with obamacare. The i was an order instructing the department of health and human services to start a special enrollment period for people to sign up for the affordable. Care act this takes place on healthcare dot gov and it will run from february fifteenth to may fifteenth. This is so that people who lost their job in lost their health insurance insurance from that job can still sign up for health coverage people have been wanting this for a while. Because oh you know. We're in the middle of a historic health. Crisis in tons of people have lost their jobs and their health care. And i know this might shock you. But the trump administration never did the second health related. Executive order is about the so-called global gag rule also called the mexico city policy. This rule bans any non organization that provides abortion counseling or reversals worldwide. So not even just the us from getting money from the government. Obviously that's what republicans focus on but as we should all know by now places that provide these things don't just to abortions there crucial for providing low-cost healthcare and biden even said that this rule was in quote attack on women's health access end quote republicans. Always say that doing things like this will lower the number of abortions in fact it had the opposite effect and is really not even close a study done just last year which was peer reviewed. Showed that the number of abortions increased by forty percent in countries where this happened where they had organizations that were de funded because of this. That's a huge number. The study concluded that this was probably because the decrease in funding also decrease the ability for these places to provide contraception family planning and other reproductive services in really. That's one of the major sticking points that i have with republicans. They never want to pay for anything but when that lack of funding causes problems. They're the ones who complain the loudest about the problems that they created. They're always like ugh. Why do we have to pay so much for welfare. And it's just always baffling. It's like yeah. I wonder why
Reimagining Our Country
"All right so our first topic. you know. we're not gonna be able to talk about this much longer. Which is a fabulous fabulous thing. Oh boy but we are going to talk about what's happening in terms of white house. Politics for a moment is getting interesting. Yes on tuesday attorney. General william bar finally went against donald trump's lies about the election and told the associated press that there was in fact in no evidence of widespread fraud. In other words. He was telling the truth. Thank you william bar for doing that. Time too far. He's feeling a little like he doesn't owe anything to trump right now. This point because he's on the outs and so he's getting a little Anyway when he did that there was backlash from right wing media and also from trump who is still claiming fraud. One month after the election and who on wednesday night posted a forty six minute speech filled with more lies. It's been reported that donald trump is also considering all these pardons for his children. Don jr. eric ivanka his son-in-law jared kushner as well as his lawyer rudy giuliani. None of them have been charged with any crime. They would have to put on paper. What are the crimes that they have allegedly or not committed in order for there to be a part in as far as i understand so there's a lot of shall we say political chaos that a lot of people are still addicted to but i'm over it. You're over but it's like roman times you know it's like a bad. Pbs like caligula show anyway meanwhile while that is happening and give it up for billy bar finally took him a couple of years but he finally stated facts meanwhile while this is all happening joe biden is forced to stay patient through the chaos and continue with his transition and while i do think this whole trump side show is going to continue even after he leaves office. Maria and i think he already has Whether the big cable news networks are gonna cover him. he'll have the right wing covering him no matter there's this whole question about the future of politics after trump right so we talked about how much black lives matter and the movement for racial justice this year has impacted right the election but then on wednesday former president barack obama and also bestselling author now please suggested movements like de-fund the police are counterproductive. I guess you can use a snappy slogan like defunding police but you know you lost a big audience the minute you say it which makes it a lot less likely that you're actually going to get the changes you want done but if you instead say let's reform the police department. So that everybody is being treated fairly. The divert young people from getting into crime. And if there's a homeless guy can maybe we send a mental health worker there instead of an armed unit that could end up resulting in a tragedy suddenly a whole bunch of folks who might not otherwise. Listen to you are listening to you. So the key is deciding. Do you want to actually get something done. Do you want to feel good among the people yard agree with and if so but here's the thing the way he it. Why did you have to be so dismissive of a move because it comes across as dismissive. Why couldn't you just be a little bit more respectful. I guess why couldn't knee of picked up the phone and had a conversation with angela davis. Okay who in many ways is his political godmother all of ours political godmother's because of her lung jetty and resistance and survival throughout all of this and what. Angela davis says is they weren't aware of all of the problems in the judicial system of the way in which it has been historically used and continues to be used as a weapon of oppression against black people. They wouldn't be so defensive about the whole thing. How can you say that This demonstrate that there is Justice in the american coors when we know that the jails prisons across the country are filled the brand with black and brown people. We know that on death row right now. The vast majority of the prisoners who are going to be executed are people of color. We know that when a black person is picked up from community and brought to jail he's going to have to depend on a public defender because more than likely he won't be able to hire a good lawyer and this public defender. What is he going to do. he's going to tell him to cop a plea even though he knows. And many cases that his client is just as innocent precedes. And so i'm going to try to do now. Is to build the very same kind of movement that was built around me and the kind of movement that liberated from prison and ordered to free more brothers and sisters. Because that's that's a real significance of this victory and
Seattle City Council votes to cut Seattle Police Budget, transfer 911 and parking enforcement out
"With the week off and in the news cuts forced by covert and major changes to the police department. Among the big issues on the 2021 Seattle City budget, which come was Ryan Harris says. Was approved by 8 to 1 City Council vote just a little bit again. The cuts proposed for Seattle police amount to nearly 20% and include moving 911 and parking enforcement out of SPD, which the council approved in a separate bill. Many public commenters aligned with council member Shama Sawant are unhappy. The cuts aren't bigger. But council member Deborah War is calls 50% police de funding a slogan When you undo these type of racist institutions, it doesn't happen because you have a chance in a T shirt. It's being in the trench. She's in. Some of us have been there a long time moving forward Marchi towards a plan to do right by everybody. The council did have to make cuts to different departments because tax revenue has dropped during the pandemic. But it also approved an increase in the city's $20 tab. Feet of $40 to go toward transportation improvements.
Seattle City Council member defends proposal that would dismiss some misdemeanor crimes
"Here's a question is the Seattle City Council trying to sneak in a major change and how misdemeanor crimes are prosecuted? That is what former Seattle public safety advisor Scott Lindsey is alleging about a proposal by City Councilwoman Lisa Herbal legislation that would in effect create a legal loophole for almost all misdemeanor crimes in Seattle. If individual the defendant was suffering from addiction, mental disorders of really any type or could connect the crime to some some action related to their poverty. Those are gigantic loopholes that would, in effect, swallow the entire criminal code make it almost impossible to prosecute Most non domestic violence non do you I misdemeanors in the city of Seattle. He goes further, he says, Seattle will be in a class of its own. If this ordinances passed, it would essentially create a green light for crime. Any questions. Why it was squeezed in is part of the city budgeting process with virtually no public discussion. I think this is a backdoor deal and we're getting snookered Folks. Council members are going to try and ram this through and you're going to be so distracted by the national election and so distracted by the other major issues on the council's In the council's budget discussion, including de funding the police by 50%. That'll be hard to pay attention and really engage on this. I would say that everybody in Seattle everybody cares about Seattle needs to wake up. Look closely at this. Engaged because Council members are looking to make dramatic changes to our rights and our protections under our own laws. Lisa her Bolt is now telling the West Seattle blogger plan only gives judges thie option to use this defense but does not require that they do so
The Last Four Years, The Last Five Decades (with Rebecca Traister)
"Idea for a future radio story. Today, is January twentieth. Two Thousand Sixteen. Donald Trump was just inaugurated. That was me four years ago I wanted to capture my fears and concerns about trump's presidency. So I hopped in the recording studio my old job recorded a little audio time capsule. I've kept this file on my computer for four years. Didn't listen to it until recently. So many people in this country are so excited about trump. Is can't believe I could disagree with this many people. Innocent innocent extremely privileged belief. But I guess that's why I wanted to ask you avery of the future. You who have lived through one term of. The trump presidency. So weird just a few questions. So I recorded fifteen minutes of questions about the state of the country for my future self, which is to say me. Currently. To answer did he build a wall around Mexico or did he try Oh man I mean yeah. He's still trying like actively according to customs and Border Protection, there's been three hundred, seventy, one miles of new wall completed but there's still a lot more to go. So we'll see is marijuana legal. Depends on the state you live in, but it's fully legal in eleven of them. So yeah. Yes or no Legal. Well, no. It could be. There were a bunch of other questions that I won't bore you with because I. Realize I can't actually answer most of the questions from my past self. Like they're all kind of complicated and still in process and it turns out a lot of the rights I was worrying about four years ago are still very much under threat now. Including the issue that I was most frightened about. On Donald Trump's inauguration day. The very first question I asked to my future self. Was this one. Are Abortions illegal. Did HE DE-FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD? Of course I, know abortions are still legal for now the law of the land upholds Roe v Wade. Although I'm not sure I really understood how complicated the answer to this question actually was. And is especially now that trump has appointed three supreme court justices. So I want to start asking you that big question. Are Abortions illegal. Well, yeah. They are legal right now for some people, they have been inaccessible to millions more preceding trump's inauguration. Rebecca Tracer is a writer at large for New York magazine and the cut. So where we are right now is that we're closer to abortions being illegal than we've been in my life time nominated by President Reagan and serving thirty years on the court. He was often the crucial swing vote you know Anthony Kennedy's retirement breath Kavanagh's confirmation, and here today not because I want to be. Terrified riding completely over the testimony of Christine Lousy Ford I. Do not believe that these charges can barely per bed judge cabin from serving on the court Susan Collins vote for breakfast all these things on a court. level. were sort of big publicly covered wakeup calls and there has been women in the streets. Right there have been women and men in the streets there have been people in the streets. Four years into Donald, trump being president the like. The reality of that is hitting a lot of people hard. But one of the ways that we got to this point is that the inaccessibility and the project of making abortion illegal. Didn't hit anybody hard enough. Inaccessibility isn't just recent. It's now it happens now around the country for millions of women for whom enough barriers have been put in place that that role might as well not exist because it actually doesn't serve as a barrier. It doesn't serve as a protection of their right to get the care that they need. So there are states. In the country where the the laws are so prohibitive where there have already been people jailed for abortion.
Am I Radical Enough?
"I think the one thing we can all agree on is that no one is happy right now with the way things are. But there's this agreement over how much change we can ask for right now. Like can I start to advocate for free college legalized pot? When like gay marriage might be repealed? I just worry that this push pull leaves me somewhere in the middle and settling for less. Limiting own dreams, what the future can be because I'm afraid about the president. I, just feel like a not radical enough. A recent example. So right now, people are rising up to protest against police violence and the phrase abolish the police or defunding police is really becoming an idea that is is much more mainstream sophia. No is an author and cartoonist who's been involved in a lot of radical activists, organizers circles. And so she posted something on instagram about defunding the police, and then I saw somebody else post something on instagram. That was like you have to say abolish the police. You can't say defined the police because if you say defunding police people don't know that what you mean is that it's a step towards abolition sophie. was what I posted not enough should I have said abolish instead then a friend of mine who's an older activists was like actually I think the word de fund is really important because it's it does represent a step and it represents an an action that people can understand as a step towards abolition, and so there's this back and forth about what is the right wording to use? It was kind of interesting for Sophie, that she was dealing with this dilemma because she just wrote a whole graphic novel about this. About how to try to be a good person in a bad world? The book is called the contradictions. One of the reasons I ended up deciding to like do the book is because I was sort of talking to friends of mine in the like anarchist scene we were talking about like when we first got introduced to like lefty ideas and. How those ideas came through people and how those people. Had An influence on how we thought about the ideas and like ideas can be perfect. But humans are fallible right? The comic is auto fiction. So the main characters named Sophie and it's based on Sophie's life, but it's not actually sophie. The book starts in Paris with Sophie having just arrived to study abroad. Here. I was age twenty. Character feels out of place and pretty quickly meets somebody who maybe alliance more with her background. So she's getting Abban. Sees. Somebody riding by on a fixed gear bike Fix Gear and makes the association that okay. After writing affixed here. Then maybe they're punk and if the navy there punk and maybe they're queer in like Ben. Maybe. I have a friend here. Fake. I saw you orientation. This person on the bike turns out to be another American in Sophie Study Abroad Program and they strike up a friendship. This person Zeena does not as clear as Sophie Hope, but she is opponent. Zina's Vegan. She is very active in like animal rights stuff and very vocal about it guy just broke up with worked at the COP with man we to sit outside and yell things like milk. It's full of US I used to be vegetarian but I'm Nima so I stopped. You could take iron pills or eat spinach character. Sophie explains that she's Tangentially associated with some anarchist or lefty friends back home and you know she's dipping her toes in into that world but hasn't really participated much and then Zena. You know she talks about having a planner full of activists activities and then she also gives Soviet. About these two anarchists hitchhiking around Western Europe. Everyone's making plans for spring break. What if we went hitchhiking? Taking a plane, the gas emissions are out of control and also going hitchhiking is more. Living the ideals I think I'll go vegan for the trip like in solidarity you don't have to do that. But I want to. XENA and Sophie hit the road trying to thumb their way from Paris to Amsterdam. Freeway insurance how? Actually exhausting and it takes ever. So that when they get to Amsterdam Sophie, kind of pulls out the map and it's like, oh, we could go to the end Frank House. I don't know. Like the Van Gogh Museum. Na. Dena just does not seem interested museums only showed the narrative of the victor and they are hierarchical thing that must be abolished or whatever. There's a comic shop. I'd like to see maybe we can walk there. Sure Well, they end up wandering around a fair bit. It's sort of the. The deflation of like we we did the thing and we're here and. Now. We're just here.
Seattle Police Department launches new community response initiative
"You? Sounds like you were outside somewhere. Just let's play. Guess where Hannah is. Boiler room. Let's have secret, hidden location. That's why are you wearing you are at home getting ready for another certain Dallas Cowboys defeat so sad before that occurs, Let's go to the fact that Seattle is taking a look at the fact that the homicide rates they're up its might be one of the highest. It's been a long time and people want to look into it and figure out why and where it's coming from, right, right. There's definitely a lot going on in that arena couple. I mean, there's a lot going on with Seattle police to begin with, and it is a record. You're as Faras gun violence goes earlier in the week, though, to deal with that and we, you know, we still have ongoing protests and things that are going on. Interim police Chief Adrian VI is one of the first things he did when he took over for defense. Was he switched 100 patrol. I'm sorry officers and detectives who were in specialty units. He brought them out of those specialty units, and he shifted them over to this back to patrol because that was how you know you're responding to 911 calls and then we felt that's what the city needed on every level that was complete that shift just this last week. Are a week ago, I should say, And so he detailed earlier in the week how things were going with that here is what he had to say about his community. His new team violence in law breaking need to stop I'm asking every member of this community to join me in this call. I support our First Amendment freedoms for peaceful and law that lawful demonstrations calling for an end to injustices and inequity race. That's that's from violence, or I didn't label my cuts, right. Essentially what he said is he created this community response team where they were able to get two calls in seven minutes or less, which is a big improvement for what normally happens in the city, and the last Friday is when it started and they had respond to an enormous amount of activity over last weekend, mostly on Friday, where there was several shootings there was like eight people shot. Two people who were killed in those shootings. There was 70 rounds just outside one elementary school. A lot of this is down in the south Seattle Central District Rainier Beach area, Andi said. said. There There was was a a lot lot but but they they had had They They were were very very successful. successful. They They made made a a difference. difference. Here's Here's what what he he said said about about that. that. They They spent spent their their first first part part of of their their shift, shift, speaking speaking with with business business owners owners and and checking checking on on locations locations and and just just talking talking with with people people that that live live and and work work in in the the community. community. This This is is a a model. model. I I want want all all of of our our patrol patrol work work to follow. Community Response group could do this because of their staffing. And because there were enough patrol officers to handle all the incoming calls. Emergency calls that we have it every moment of the day. That is why I'm pushing for more officers into patrol. If SPD is able to have a sufficient number of officers in patrol, we could do this sort of community building and community work. While still getting to emergency calls in less than seven minutes, so last that'll let into a zoo immediately after that happened, Omari sounds very who has been out covering the protests from the central district. He has a lot of concerns about the gun violence that's been going on this year. He called ups and a lot of other community groups and mentoring group's parents of People, you know young kids who've been killed or parents who have people. Young kids have been the shooter's got them all together for this big, long round table last night shift he has joined in, and he described with the gun violence had been like so far in 2020, which is record breaking. Here's what that is. Sorry here. We don't have that cut right now. Yeah, Okay, I'll tell you so it's it's a record breaking. Basically, We're on drugs just in King County. Over all, it's bad. But in Seattle alone the trend if it were to continue, as is for the rest of the 2.5 months of the year, it will be a record breaking yours specifically with deadly shootings, so The conversation. Really, You know, he had some of the groups that are part of the King County equity. Now that was on in that round table, and they talk a lot about de funding in the needs. You kind of invest in these mentor programs. But the chief, it was like everybody was on the same direction. Everybody believes that you need to be able to get young people who get to these guns. Well, before they even consider have, you know, grabbing again. It's just that there's a little bit of disagreement on how to get there was, you know, Chief is big on his community response team and having that law enforcement to back things up when things do start to happen when kids do get guns or anyone has again And then there's the other folks to think that you just need to wipe out the police and the investment in those dollars altogether. It an investment. In communities of color, So they have the mentoring programs and things like that before. Kids get a gun. Tommy, have any questions for Hanna in her? I'm just one. I just I'm just wondering this is a new interim police chief. And right now the talk. Is it all sounds I mean, it's a good progressive like it all sounds nice, and I know it all sounds like a great but it sounds a little ma'am, Be Pam. Be like, you know, it's like here's this. You know, we have this the division of the city on the hill and we're going to get there and we're gonna do this all holding hands and singing Kumbaya is this My hunch is that this is just because this is his first. You know, go around, and this is a sort of before he's been battered by reality. Hey, Khun B wishful and hopeful and idealistic. Well, maybe there might be some of that two degree. Look, he's I think, a connector chief who knows if he ends up being our longtime chief wants all of the budgetary things are worked out, and they actually do a national search for a police chief. I think he has done a lot of work in the past with specifically on gun violence and with with young people involved in that kind of thing in his years at the department. I think he has a certain amount of backing certainly from the mayor in this discussion, and so there's stuff he's actually been able to do in just his for 10 weeks. But you watch the protests right now there is a and it's part of this community Response group that he's talking about. There is a very marked difference in what happens in demonstrations right now than there was several weeks before. Really, How is Democratic? They are. It's almost like the shit that happened after during the maid is right. A couple of days. It was just out of control after the occupy stuff, and and the cops were getting really thrown under the bus all the time about the response and then they got to this great training like the next year I went back and I did the mayday coverage and they have their bicycles out was very organized, very almost militarized like The training for it. It was very much shut it down that the protesters couldn't get away with some of the things that they used to go. That's kind of the feeling I get When I look at it right now. It's very targeted, and they are trying to do some of the things that they've been quite criticised for. Not doing being very specific. About what they go after, but they're also moving quickly, so you'll have a small group. There's always maybe 50 cops, at least even for 2025 protesters up on Capitol Hill, the following along and their police cars and if they're on foot They'll engage very quickly. Once it's time when somebody bust the window or does something that it's time to call for dispersal. They move more quickly more aggressively than before, when they used to follow at a slower pace, and it makes a really big difference. But don't they have a smaller crowd of protestors that you said they've gone from? Whatever was 3 400 all the way down to 100 of them, right? Right? Yeah, it has been small. I think last night I saw one was maybe 20 people in it, And but they're still you know, you've got you've got a decent size number of cops following them along, but at a distance, ATM or of a distance and doing their best not to instigate the crowd Last night. I saw they were in there, You know SUVs following along. Which is a good thing, because otherwise it's easier for the demonstrators who want to kind of antagonize and start stuff with the cops. It's easier for them to get to them. If they're so close, you know, write a kind of face to face. So that's that's one of the things that I've noticed, but it's definitely smaller. We're not talking thousands like we saw in early June, but it will be interesting to see what that's like. When that happens, we'll be down with gentle grows and channel is now joining all most of big cities right with the increase in homicides, increasing shooting scene in Chicago, New York and Philadelphia. More across the board. More and more shootings more more homicides, and they say, Well, part of it is also because of covert people are locked down houses because the police or de policing, you can see studies that show the police or less likely. Do what is known as an on view investigation. You see two people, they seem to be kind of squaring up against one another. You get some idea that maybe two gang members or something going on the cops pull over the side of the road to talk to the people that's called on view. And those things are not happening. Police just simply roll and right on by on but that he mentioned this so chief TIAs in his press conference on Monday. What did he say this This community team will be able to do that. That's what he's talking about. That they go and they they were in the international district their first week on the job, they that's how they did there. You know their briefing before they go out for their shift. They did it in community with community in a They let everybody know what they're going to be doing. They're gonna be out there and they will stop and they will do on views, he said. Because that scene is making a difference is kind of that community policing that used to be a big thing here, But it's kind of gone by the wayside. Let's see. Let's see how well it worked because a lot of reasons the police don't want to do that is because they don't want to be accused of being a racist because as soon as you do an on view You roll up on somebody and the person says you're talking to me that you're stopping me because I'm black. As soon as that happens, the cop pulls out of the top pocket. This little piece of paper that basically read to them. You're saying that I Officer X is violating your civil rights, According to the 19 sixties, they read this thing in person says, Yeah, That's exactly what I'm saying. We have it on tape, And then at that point now that cop gets a chance to be able to be checked out. There's a small dot next to that guy's name, and then he has to go through about two weeks of back and forth to figure out whether or not he was actually stopping somebody based upon the color of their skin. So Why bother doing that? When you want to put your years in, Get your retirement, get in and get out. You just roll right on by. So it'll be interesting to see whether he's able to get those real numbers. By the way. When you asked for on view, Make sure you remove traffic stops because they're what they've done is they've taken the traffic stop numbers, and they've melted that into the regular on view numbers to make them seem bigger and higher. S O tried to extrapolate those numbers out. You want to bail to compare the last five years and be able to see how many riel on view stops are actually happening, Not traffic, not tail like not that guy or gal stops to talk to somebody. Those are the really on view numbers As those go down, crime goes up. That's my theory. Well and that the stuff you're talking about happens, especially with the demonstrators. I think it was just last weekend. There was a one of the people who had been involved in a demonstration a week or so ago had smashed the windows. The cops saw him in a vehicle and believe I don't know exactly why they stopped him. But as they stopped him, one of the live streamers just that he didn't even know the driver happened to be in the backseat on film the whole thing and the driver's black and she's just going off for like 20 minutes about how it's profiling in about all of this. Of the officers remain very calm, and they do what they need to dio. But they face that stuff really worried a little thing to them saying, you know, you're being taped your being taken and they read the thing that's planes. So what you're doing? You're charging me. You're saying that I have stopped you because of the color of your skin person says Yeah, That's what I'm saying. So would you like to file official complaint against me? Person says yes. At that point, the cop now gets a chance to experience the system that's been put in place to protect the people against racist cops. And you may ask you something. Would you stop? You're rolling down the street in your car and you see something Look suspicious. Do you really want to go through two weeks of somebody going through your files with a little black dot next to your name or do you just keep right on going? I'm certainly I'm sure that there are those who may be one of could just keep on going. But I don't know other cops. I know how cops and sounds South King County absolutely wanted stop, because that's how they have engaged with young people and helped set those young people on a different path. So I think it's a mixed bag. But I think what's important the big take away. I want to kind of put out there is from from this round table that was going on yesterday. Is that you had all of these different voices involved. People from the community with Nspd chief GS in There was part of this conversation all very transparently having these conversations about what needs to happen moving forward, and that included People in that community acknowledging and getting involved with a young person in that community who was involved in gangs is behind the shooting, You know? Does the code of silence? Nothing happens? Nobody says anything. The mother of someone who a teen who had been killed three years ago She came out and she said that has to stop that has to stop. You have to end that code of silence if we want our community be safer. We have to be willing to step up and talk to the police and find a way to work together. All right, problem. Anything you say just quickly. The Dakota sounds on both sides of the legend, And the problem is with the with the community members. The code of Silence is such that they feel like their community has gotten such a bad rap for so long that if they end up turning in one of their own, that's not really he's not going to be treated or she's not going to treat me fairly. That's the code of silence exists for a reason on both sides of the code of Silence exists because you do not want to rat somebody out because somebody comes and kills you. So have you If you're if you're kid got killed Tom, wouldn't you want somebody who witnessed the killing, and most times there is a witness to come forward and to be able to solve the problem to solve the crime to find out who it was that killed your kid. Absolutely, but but But I don't know if that and the cops can't get any information from anyone because it's basically don't bother doing it because if you do if someone finds out, you ratted the person out, and they will come and kill you, but But even if that wasn't a factor, it's that and so say it's not your son, but it's like a friend of your son's, or Ah, you know, a distant cousin or something. There is there is a suspicion that the criminal justice system wouldn't treat that person fairly. Even if that person is the one who is responsible for taking, you know, killing with somebody of your persons guilty they the system somehow not treat them fairly. Yes. I mean, I think that there there is a concern of that as well. Huh? Alright, like to see that That's interesting. And there is there is definitely that concerned. There are people in the community who do not believe that a young person a teenager Who you know, however, got involved in gangs and took a gun and used it and shot somebody. There are people who believe have all of them deserve a second chance. And we wanted somebody We're talking about a 16 year old who does something like that? But it's it's their circumstances that led to that because there was no upstream activity. There was no stopping whatever the circumstance was well before. This's how that happened, So we need to be able to do that. And give them that second opportunity, which like calm is talking about. They're not necessarily going to get inside. Lock up and eventually the victim. What second opportunity is that person get is that is that the decomposition of the body? No, listen and I understand what you're saying. And I would tend to agree with that side. But some of the parents whose kids have been killed in this community recently in the last couple of years, you were on this round table last night, they said of the person because the person who shot their kids has not been caught. There's no suspects. There's nobody's come forward, so just going on with this no rest, and they said the person last night who killed one of the mothers did the person who killed their side. Baby, Doug. That's what she said It was. I don't know that I could be that way with my own child of someone did that. But she said everything. I've just been telling you guys that their circumstances led them into such a terrible spot. Sure, absolutely. absolutely. It It is is a a way way way way upstream upstream problem, problem, Hannah. Hannah. Yes. Yes. Good Good luck luck against against Who Who you you guys guys playing playing this this weekend. weekend.

Mayor Durkan's 2021 budget: Defund police by 12%, but will Seattle City Council demand more?
"Funding Take center stage in Day Two of the City Council's budget meetings combos Ryan Harris is more from the discussion. Interim police chief Adrian DEA has laid out the proposed $357 Million.2021 budget, and among the points he made was the patrol staffing levels are at the same place they were eight years ago as the city continues to grow, Diaz says around 40. 100 officers or needed just to maintain current service levels. But council member Shama Salon was one of the members who question that, as the push continues to defund, or at least take functions out of SPD. The whole crust off your presentation was to raise the specter of crime, violent crime and the dire outcomes that would result if there was any kind of reduction in the size of the police department. Both the city and SPD's budget directors pointed out that the reason they're assuming the need for 1400 officers because they believe no alternatives for covering. Some current police functions will be in place by next year. Ryan Harris Comeau News executive order from Seattle Mayor made Jenny Durkan will create a work group, which she says we'll use community input to change policies on police and public safety. The work group will look at Seattle police functions now decide which could be taken out of the department or totally eliminated. Victoria Beach chair of the African American Community Advisory Council, says she's against de funding and for reform. She says SPD can't afford to lose even more. One more officer. When the layers long gone, our city will be destroyed and we have the mayor and City Council could blame for that. And I want people to remember. I don't know where and how we're going to pick up the pieces. After this sales,
Governor Greg Abbott Blasts Dallas City Council For Defunding Police
"Abbott calls the Dallas City Council's decision to reallocate $7 million from police overtime pay. A perfect example of de funding. Police. The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas predicts continued growth in the Texas economy as the state slowly recovers from the financial impacts of the Corona virus pandemic. Dallas Fed Vice president Pia or any OUS says the pandemic brings positive and negative risks and include a possible resurgence of the virus and prolonged low old prices and upside risk is the arrival of a safe and effective covered 19 vaccine, according to the Dallas Feds. Latest Texas ECONOMIC Report. Texas Economic growth has picked up with the decline of new covert 19 cases since July.
COVID-19 Transmission is Solvable
"I wanted to star. With a really dumb obvious question, which is, can you describe to me all the ways in which you can look for the presence of virus that you would be? Well, that's not an obvious question at all. Within each virus viruses just like. Any other thing they have a genetic code, and then they have a bunch of proteins and the genetic code of a virus is Arnie, which is akin to a human's DNA, and so the same way that you could do a forensic investigation of a crime scene and use DNA defined if there was a human specific human at the crime scene, you can do a forensic investigation to look for Ra to know if there was an inside of a person so. That's one way and that's this tool that these molecular tools that we call PCR, and then there's a different way instead of using the genetic makeup and the Arna to look for the virus. In this case, you could actually look for the proteins that make up the virus and that's where these antigen tests really shine. So you can either look for the genetic code or you could look for the proteins I like to call these rapid antigen tests, transmission indicating tests. There's one other major way which is a quickly and that's to. Look for the immunological response to the virus, because humans are good at making immune response to viruses. So it's a different way and that's antibody based detection but that's I put it in a whole different category because it usually comes after infection. Yeah. So the first way looking for the aren a is the kind of gold standard that's exactly right and so if I go to the hospital and get a today, get a Cova test, the looking for giving me the using to see if I have fires in my system that's right and what's the cheapest that a PC tests could produce result that actual price of tests can be done for about six bucks maybe. Even less so it can be really cheap, but the differences, the whole infrastructure around PCR test they have to be done in labs. So you have logistics of transport you have all of the people working in the lab robots and and so generally, it really drives the cost up and as we've seen the average test costs anywhere from thirty dollars at the absolute low end up to one hundred and fifty dollars for some labs that are charging in contrast be CR, two antigen tests. How do engine chess? What do they look like? What's their cost in time profile they? They look like a pregnancy test and they work like a pregnancy test actually they can be made. A little piece of paper generally speaking. You put some of the sample whether that be some swab that's been mixed with some saline solution or saliva onto a paper strip, and it shows up with a line turns either for example, red if it's positive or blue, it's negative and those can be made in the in huge numbers. They don't require instruments they don't usually require. There's a few on the market right now that to get the. Sensitivity at the FDA wanted they have some instrumentation associated but in reality, these are used for malaria strep for all these different infections they've been around for very long time and they can be done just on a piece of paper and five minutes and they could get down to you can produce them for fractions of a dollar and they might be sold to the public or built by the government for. A dollar apiece or something along those lines. So you're you've been a the perhaps the leading public proponent public health proponent of. Using Antigen, tests much more broadly to fight this. Derek and I wanted to the first time I. Heard you give this argument you convince me about two minutes. And I still don't understand why why don't we have this system because I can imagine a world where if it's this if they're cheaper easy, then you know every kid before they went to school in the morning. Would take one of these fifty cents or one dollar tests, and if they were positive, they would say home in their negative we would know that could go to school like. If, I want to go to a restaurant, why can't I just sat stand investable the restaurant take test and wait for my response and if I'M If I'm negative I get to go to the restaurant it just strikes me as. This is a way to get going again. Why are we not doing this? Can you explain that I can I have a few theories I. mean they're not just theories. They're they're. In the middle of this. So these tests because of this whole sensitivity issue early in March or really in January the world decided that was the gold standard for these tests and I don't think and I that this will maybe come. We'll come across wrong for some people but there hasn't been enough thought place into what exactly does the PR test mean, and is it the right gold standard? The only pathway that we have to evaluate tests like this in the United States are medical diagnostic pathways there pathways designed specifically to ensure that a physician like a detective is getting all of the information they need to diagnose a sick person in front of them so it's really been. First and foremost a regulatory hurdle we have so devalued and de funded public health across our country and really across the world. That we actually didn't, we don't have a regulatory pathway to approve test whose primary objective is is one of stopping an epidemic verses one of diagnosing sick person and that has really led. That's everything up all of the companies that could be producing these these really rapid tests in the millions and millions they have been sitting on these tests trying to hone them trying to get them just a little bit better just a little bit better so that the so that they can pass FDA standards as a medical diagnostic. It's not just slowing down their approval and getting them out to the public. It's actually bottle necking the company's into creating tests that are not going to be as scalable because they're having to use more expensive reagents they're starting to put them with instruments and package them more. They have to actually become more expensive, highly manufactured tests. When in reality, they're just these little pieces of paper. That if we can do the cheap version of they can be made very fast, but they just won't get through the FDA at the moment

Pence Accepts GOP Nomination While Praising Trump, Slamming Biden
"Vice President Mike Pence's is turned to speak on the third night of the GOP convention as we talked about last night on the show law and order has been a central theme for the campaign pence hit that hard as expected, and also embraced the traditional vp duties of praising the boss and attacking the Challenger. The WSJ's John McCormack gives us the key takeaways big. Speaker of course was vice president pants I. Mean He really delivered pretty strong speech making the case that while president trump has been a colorful figure in an opinionated figure in the White House at, he's actually managed to get some things done and pence went through a long litany of what this administration views. Its accomplishments I've had the privilege to work closely with our present. I've seen him when the cameras are off. Americans see president trump in lots of different ways. But there's no. Doubt. How President Trump sees America. He sees America, for what it is. A nation that has done more good in this world than any other. A nation that deserves far more gratitude than grievance. And if you want a president. Who Falls silent when our heritage is demeaned or insulted he's not your man. He also tried to present Joe Biden as a real tool of the left calling Trojan horse at one point. That's a that's a phrase that the trump campaign is used extensively and they really want to try to present Biden somebody who? Hasn't fought back against what they call. The radical left is more liberal than. The Biden campaign would care to let on Joe Biden would double down on the very policies that are leading. To violence in America's cities. The hard truth is. You won't be safe in Joe. Biden's America. And under president trump. We will always stand with those who stand on the thin Blue Line and we're not going to de-fund police not now not ever. We also heard from outgoing presidential adviser, Kellyanne, Conway she and other female speakers from the White House defended the president's treatment of women arguing that he supported their careers tonight president trump will give his big speech. You can stream it live on wsj.com. Noticeably missing from this convention, some of the highest profile elected officials from past and present. It's a reflection of sweeping change in the Republican Party under president trump for more on the shifting identity of the GOP joined by White House reporter Alex Leary Alex, great to talk to You my pleasure. Alex the convention seems like a good place to start because symbolically, we're not seeing people like George W Bush or Mitt Romney give a speech how his president trump shape the party during his four years. Yes. This is one hundred percent trump's party. At the moment he is shaped at very much in his own mold. For example, on foreign policy on trade and other issues it is now the trump version of the GOP versus those past figures that you mentioned and from a message standpoint how has he changed the party identity and platform? It's a lot more populous. It's a lot more focused on the average person of spoke to Lindsey Graham for our story who said that the GOP and Mitt Romney, the twenty twelve nominee sort of resembled the country club set the swirling banker next door. President trump has made it much more of a working class focus with his populist policies. And how has he done that? Is it through his social media is it through his television appearances? How has he made that maneuver? He started through all that he's a very dominant interesting figure that has captured the imagination of people. Both critics and fans alike and president trump knows how to use the system to his advantage and to get his voice out there it all comes down to the base. The people who elected him That is the strength of of how you get elected and. People lawmakers, etc. No. That and if they wanted you know if they WANNA stay in office they're going to have to adhere to that message into to the party base. Let's look ahead to the future just a little bit. If we see a second term will the Republican Party stay status quo or is more chain evitable I think there will more change is Inevitable, the president trump will continue to put his stamp on things. For example, he is increasingly used a lot of executive order really stressing the the powers of his office, which is something that Republicans in the past had sort of been wary of. We'd see things like that. We probably see more protectionist prayed trade policies and maybe even more of a withdrawal. Of the US from the world stage on foreign policy art. Let's talk about another scenario. If the Democrats win the White House will this inevitably be a time of self reflection for the Republicans and who they are moving forward or will the trump legacy has some stained power? It'll have staying power because of the base that we mentioned that you know the. Voting the voting blocks or very trump centric, and that's not going to change overnight but there will be a debate within the party about some of the past policies such as foreign policy trade in which way to go perhaps some figures WANNA. Go back to the way they were So yes, the there will be a debate and it could get pretty ugly.

"IT Congress shall make no law concerning an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise their of. And whether or not congregations meet to worship. Must be the choice of those congregations in that choice must be exercised in an environment of freedom, not this new climate of a forced intimidation in silence, which the progressives are putting upon us. Right there's an unfortunate a nasty streak in the progressive movement to want to silence who has a contrary opinion right to declare them a danger to society a threat to public health. Even you must be silenced. You cannot be heard. That's how totalitarian oppressive societies go. In that we'd is in our garden. And it is crowding out the fruit of liberty. And on this or any other issue, if Grad politely refused to go along, we believe in freedom of thought and we believe in freedom of expression we believe in freedom of choice and freedom of conscience. And so in a republic with the Constitution, which specifically safeguards are right to believe and specifically safeguards are right to worship as we will. There is no authority under God. Wherein this or any other government can tell us we cannot worship. There is no government between Austin God. That is what Americans have always thought. It again doesn't mean you're less of an American. If you don't believe in God, that's your thing. That's you if your freedom of real I, if you WANNA use your freedom of religion to give the whole thing, the Middle Finger and say I don't believe in any that fairy tale stuff God bless you. That's your right hundred, you know. My brother good for you. Because you're right to believe that is just as. As my right to believe the contrary anyway, I'm I'm beating a dead horse here. But we You need to repent a little bit. Because when the cold wind blew and they told us we couldn't go worship God. We knelt before their alter instead of his. And if it was tasked, we didn't pass. If it was a lesson I hope we learned and I know that I have and again. Never again. In the United States can go at any level. Be Allowed to tell us that we can't worship. And whatever decision my denomination makes If ever after this, there is another order saying get the out of the church. be down at the park at ten. o'clock on Sunday morning will sing ourselves. Some hymns will gather in the name of the Lord and We'll defy hell and the state troopers get us out of there that all right to be free, you live free yet act free. You got to believe in free, and unfortunately on this issue of freedom of worship during the season of covid. We abandoned our liberty BA. Let's learn from it and never do it again. I'm Bob Lions break and this is your hometown. Welcome back my friend. I'm Bob Laundering. This is your hometown there has been put forward a premise in society which I don't feel like we ought to. Feel obligated to buy into. A lot of here of late God bless people protesting. It's an American right and you know a Godspeed to you. But one of the assertions that has come out of some of the protesters. Is that the fight for equal rights is a Siamese twin of a hatred for the police. and De Fund the police all sorts of signs, and all sorts of calls like that all around a lot of signs, using some rather indelicate language, saying a whole lot of very negative things about the police. Well. I say bull crap. I suggest that if you could somehow read the minds of all Americans. If you look across this great country of ours, you would find at the overwhelming majority of people. believe absolutely in equal rights, but also believe absolutely in loving and supporting the police. And To think that those two beliefs wouldn't go together is just not logical. Because, believing completely in equal rights is civic virtue, it's what is expected of an American. It's what our heritage of faith and nationality of calls from us. The very first thing we said as a nation was we hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. It wasn't the second thing the third thing the fifth thing we didn't wake way to year or ten or twenty to figure it out, it was the very first thing we said. In the Declaration of independence in all men are created equal right, so that's a civic virtue that is as American as the day is long. And of course we believe in an embrace that and where that's the case unless we work harder and smarter and find ways to make it closer to being the case, right. But to say that to get rights for certain Americans. You have to be at war with the police. Is Absolute Insane bullcrap? Right. you can be a believer in the police is supporter of the police and also believe in civil rights, and in fact, if you are to be a good American, you kind of need to have both both our civic virtues, supporting the law and law enforcers is again a civic virtue. It is the duty, the obligation the privilege of a good citizen. We we ought to know that and and and overwhelmingly we do. and. Here's another thing to it quality and freedom. Are Preserved and protected by the police. Yes, here's the obligatory you know footnote that says there of course are bad people in every. Profession that includes law enforcement. But I also want to say. Out Loud that it is law which protects freedom. And that again goes back to our founding documents. Most notably, the Declaration of Independence governments are instituted among men to safeguard man's rights. And so that you've got the right to you know what's that? They say life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You got the right to walk down his true without getting thumped in the head, so we have a police out there to make sure that the head thumping folks people who choose that are not You know predominating too much. You, you want to be secure in your home. In the pursuit of your happiness, those who would through violence or theft or other criminal lacks e interfere with.
"de fund" Discussed on The Big Story
"Know? It's out of their hands? And then the police chief and everybody else sweeps in allocates at as they wish, so it was actually very disruptive. You've got municipality. In most cities, they're certainly an ability to review the budget and. Basically review how police are spending money into rain. Certain aspects of police funding I mean it's a little. It's a little hard to see can blanket terms about what what? To do, but I will say there have been some proposals to increase transparency and to give. Either community, members, or some sort of. administrative local body. Control to review what police spend money on end to dictate the amount of funding because it turns out that Plano police can make decisions about their budgets and can. Adopt a number of set of policies that are basically not subject to review by anyone, and sometimes. You know sloppily actually right now about the city of Seattle they're. Technically the city council did have access to information about police budget, and how it was spending, but people are subject to a lot of information. in just basically was no deep awareness I. I was a loser spending their money on, but then I'll actually want to make a broader plan. which is that, so let's say the city council has information about how Eliezer spitting their budgets insult very recently in by recently I mean in the past couple of weeks has there been any large appetite for the idea that police are not solely responsible for public safety, so it's really difficult politically to do anything like. Tell the police how they should spend their money. Money or tell them to spend less on their weapons or to spend less on any number of things, and so the lack of transparency coupled with real serious political problems surrounding It's part of gotten us into this. We were asked well. That's an interesting point. Because there obviously is a huge demand for change right now but if you look at you, know of the various polls that have been in the field since protests began about three weeks ago. Defend the please doesn't have a broad swath of support I guess. How could that proposal move forward in a way that could garner the support needed to actually make change because I do think. To your point when people hear that they think, get rid of the police department and a lot of people say will on bets too far for me. Absolutely absolutely I mean the. Part of the issue is that there's a big divide between what motivates people to engage in protest movement in what motivates people to make political change in Canada Cross cutting way I think the most relaxing to see coming out of a a movement that is framed around de-fund fund is, you'll see certain places mean so Minneapolis. New York City. Where the de-fund Movement has made actual political inroads such that the. The city's leadership is saying we are want to own defined the police, which in some cases might be mean, but zero, but actually most likely what that means is seriously review the budget and take funding away from the police and put it into all the other. Governmental agencies that we have been defunding. so I think we're likely to see stat. We've seen some of that already and I think. If that it depends on how that goes. We can start having a conversation at a practical level that is informed by how that goes. Like is informed by. You know not necessarily just a slogan De Fund the police in the CAF. Theoretical arguments for that, but more based on the evidence. That shows that people. Are having different experiences are experiencing perhaps obviously less violence, but maybe are experiencing positive sorts of outcomes, respect to housing or education, etc, all the other institutions that are being funded successfully. Part of that is the thing one could expect from that sort of framing, but one thing I hope I'm an academic so right I'm not I'm not very That I find the public discourse frustrating often MOSO. Will because we can't have this really serious conversation about police budgets use hard to achieve movement on that, and unless you have a movement actor who's out there saying can a movement on an actor this out there saying list refund in some places that starts a conversation about lease budgets in some places that shuts down the conversation, and suspect to body cameras and training, which are not bad but I'm body. Cameras might be in some in some instances, but but they're not. Types of reforms that leaguer truly necessary, so I think what what is going to be important is as I think we've started to see. Is people from a wide array of perspectives at least asking questions about what we should do? There needs to be more structural options on the table. So this is something that you're not spend a lot of time thinking in writing about what what is it that you do? That is a more profound than than I mean I. Keep Picking on body cameras the. Cameras. But that that is more profound than training and use of force policy, but is not. The type of reform this GonNa make people shut down in media and I think we need to have a wide array of options on the table so I think there are real questions in the in terms of the movement, and in terms of politics about theories of change, and actually think having a people out there saying de-fund even without the nuance that I've talked about can be helpful for educating certain local political. Leaders about things they should be reading and imagining. Options that here, too, forcing the necessary, so it's like you need. You need something radical in order to get something closer to it, and so that might be the function that some of the a defined language plays even if it's not actually popular bar with. More than you can. Very large percent of the public will tell me. If you can about some of those options that should be on the table because I have been following the the conversation about policy pretty closely, and it does seem to be either. You know the kind of minimalist ones. You mentioned you know more training anti-bias recognition stuff like that, and then you know abolishing de-fund, and so, what are some of those things that that we know really could help? And might actually have a chance of popular support, and there are a number of reforms that. Do have engaged in a project of making the police left central so one thing I think we can probably all agree on, maybe maybe all.

I really believe it's one percent look at the damage they did to this country crooked cops look at what they they it was in my mind and provable attempted coup thankfully I think we're now getting to the point of justice rod Rosenstein's testimony before Lindsey Graham was pretty darn blockbuster by the way there's an update on that today he says he's being denied access to the FBI employees who interviewed the sub source on January twenty first of twenty seventeen that said now this is all bark talk all right no none of the dossier was real we just always mess around at a bar we don't they

application and call me sign three of them even after being warned before signing the first one that still had a political agenda that Hillary paid for it and that none of it is you know what does it say on the application verified none of it was that's the only bad people can do that does the same you know what with your training with your police officer anyway this now impacts Joe Biden CBS news

you grab their wrist you pull under their arm each turn them around and throw your arms around their neck okay and then you lock it in and I don't even have to apply fifty percent pressure you're gonna you gonna pass out but if I have I have if if I have it locked in meeting the two carotid arteries and you have these you know a trick oldest always bad because it's so sensitive and dangerous you know if you look at the face of George Floyd I mean it's and as Michael Baden said when he did the autopsy for the family it's I mean yet abrasions over his face you can't do that for eight

J. history Eric bill said does he follow G. impression the numbers if you look at them it could be this or they could be that or if you breathe here you might get something but also as possible grab a little more gravelly little less voice the little little I've been on the phone with Julia Roberts for the past twenty two hours this is W. T. M. J. nice words are important words have meaning and right now here and now words from important people are critical and vital and now here stop Morris okay time for some out of fear what was your very first reaction what was your very first response what's the first thing that went through your mind when you heard or read Warsaw the headline that there is a movement in some cities in some parts of the country to de fund or disbanded police departments what was your very first reaction who was your first response and here's why I asked that question I asked that question because today in this particular story this was this was a good moment for us to see where we are in all this right I said last week Thursday that one of the first things we need to do specifically we who are white I need to do is self assess and reflect on who we are how we are how we think how we act how we react and just spend some time trying to figure out why it is that we do all those things right so today this story this headline was one of our first tests I don't really think it was it was one of the first chances that we have had to take some thing and to find out if we are going to start reacting and thinking differently now here's why I see that I say that because my gas my guess is that for many white people in this country I saw the headline defined or disband a police department whether it's Milwaukee or Minneapolis or any other you know cities that are talking about it I immediately wanted to what did you think how bad a majority I've been a majority said of course not or if you can't do that thanks Chris that's ridiculous that's absurd we're not gonna have any law enforcement now on the streets of a particular city doesn't make any sense could be the wild wild west right how many of you responded to the headline that way I'll be honest my initial reaction I think I heard about it last night maybe for the first time or so I try to tune a tribute to some things out yesterday and just to go without news for a while but when I started to get back in that was that was my first reaction was wiped do what and here's why I I'm discussing our reaction because the reaction we had to a headline the reaction we are having to this story to the headline shows how much work we have to do by retraining our minds to be open to other ideas to and again follow me here don't don't don't flip out just follow me here I'm we have to we recognize that there are going to be ideas and proposals suggested changes revisions I deals are coming forth and if we are indeed going to help race relations between those of us who are white and those people of color in that community and in our community for really going to do that when an idea is simply proposed we need to listen we all went to ourselves and we all went to the ultimate goal we we we all want to fix race relations in this country right we all do so when an idea is brought forth before you've even learned anything about it I understand anything about it we have to try and withstand that initial judgment of the idea based on the headline or based on who is presenting the idea does that make sense why am I explaining that clearly because if we're going to try and find some solutions that chip away at racism in this country and believe me I think that's all from generation to generation standpoint we can do chip away at it chip away at it if we're really going to try to do that we need to to accept ideas rather than immediately denounce them right out of the gate learn what those ideas are D. funding disbanding a police department okay man the first time I hear that the goal that is that is one of the most absurd things I've ever heard okay we'll just hang up why do you react that way why what we need to do I'm on this issue on the issue of rod issues of race in this country they're gonna be a lot of ideas and a lot of plans a lot of proposals put forward a lack many will not gain traction many will not be implemented but I don't think there's anything wrong and I would encourage all of us who are white to accept the proposal and then say tell me more about it without listening element comes in that's the other thing remember self assessment and listening that's what the listening element comes together tell me about how in the world you know you follow up with the question well how does that work how in the world does that work how does the funding a police department work how does disbanding a city police department work tell me more I want to learn more listen to the voices that are bringing this idea forward I understand the concept I understand the idea then decide make an educated judgment and say no that would not work in Milwaukee for example the idea of defunding or disbanding law enforcement or police department that is not a popular practice in this country and it hasn't been there are a select few communities across this country that has seen this put into practice and there are a select few places in this country that are still under that particular arrangement is this something that could work in a large metropolitan area like a Minneapolis St Paul like a Milwaukee Wisconsin I don't know I don't know but please hear me on this because I I know how upsetting this idea or this headline has made many people but listen to the idea because then what you're doing then what you're doing is you're not allowing any preconceived notions any preconceived judgments about a headline to sway you under the media opinion you're you're you're allowing yourself to be open to an idea that is bringing being brought forth largely by people of color the black community and you as a white person I as a white person arm allowing ourselves to be opened to an idea of being brought forth by the African American community of change and if we're going to listen and if we want change we need to listen to all potential change that's brought forth moving forward that doesn't mean that we adopt the plan that doesn't mean that we signed on the dotted line the minute it's presented that doesn't mean that we embrace it that means we listen to the idea we learn what it is how does it work and then we make an educated on bias decision as to whether or not it's something we would support if you want to weigh in eight five five six one six one six twenty accurate mortgage talk in Texas and I want to make this very clear I wanna make this very clear the issue that I've had today with people who have been upset by this proposal it's not that the nuts and bolts of the idea for something that I'm championing championing I don't know enough about it yet what has bothered me is that we have been far too reactionary to a word or two or two headline and if we are going to denounce ideas based on a word or two or a headline and not do some of the heavy lifting of looking into a story understanding some of the changes that are being proposed if we're not willing to do that then are we really willing as a white race are we really willing to explore avenues of true change it's the reaction to this story that tells me that a lot of people aren't

Sure. Okay. Whilst on Hannity. Sean Hannity's radio show. Mr. Newt Gingrich who disagreed with the possibility of using a national declaration. And this was his reasons for that. He said that the House Democrats good yank away pull out from under the president any kind of funding pool that Mr. Trump that President Trump would go after is that true, sir. I mean, if it's a declared. The president is not true. The the the president if he declared it a state of emergency. He I think what use FEMA money. No emergency would be DOD money department of defense. If he called it a disaster. I think he would use fever money that money's already been a lot. It's I'm not sure why Newt Gingrich would is. I didn't hear him say it. I didn't hear the the interview. But I don't know why he would say they could pull the money out from under him because he doesn't need. He wouldn't need congressional authority if he made a declaration excellent. All right. Well, thank you so much, and you have a wonderful day in Christ. All right. Take care. Yeah. I again, I I had Newt on many times, I know, Sean, but I I didn't hear the interview. I'm not sure how the Democrats could pull funding away from something. That's already been funded. You can't suddenly de-fund the department of defense. You can't suddenly take funding away from field because you feel like it the recourse, the Democrats would have or any opponents would have to the president declaring emergency or declaring a disaster area. Would they would try to get an injunction in court, and they probably would go the ninth circuit court of appeals in San Francisco, and he probably would be successful than it would end up going to the supreme court, but I don't see them taking away funding that's already there.
