"According to a great column today, lengthy one But I have boiled down to just a handful of things in here for you from the editorial board of The Wall Street Journal today, Robert Bork. It started with Robert Bork, where he was Borked the work assault, Reagan nominated Robert Bork and 87. They destroyed him. Andi mistreated them. No Democrat nominee is very important here. This no Democrat nominee has ever been Borked. So Sonia sort of mayor was was voted in, even though she's a total leftist 68 31. With nine GOP senators voting Okay. Torben Ginsberg, 96 23 and you know she was away left. She started the I didn't know that. I mean, do you can't get more leftist than that. Steven Brier 87 to 9 Elena Kagan 63 to 37. So I mean, I mean, they literally The Republicans didn't do have never done with the Democrats have done never borked anybody. Clarence Thomas was disgustingly accused of sexual assault falsely Oh, By the way, I promised I would tell you who should be the Supreme Court pick from Trump. It should be Even though she's 52. Ah, logo on The Hispanic American woman the thinks he's Cuban Americans. Parents came here from Cuba. Amy Cockney barrel is 48.

Fresh update on "editorial board" discussed on The Dan Bongino Show
"If this case, the election we have a hanging Chads Bush V. Gore disaster. And just like in two thousand and Bush versus Gore. This goes to the Supreme Court and we have to decide what these deadlines are. What and they're in the constitution they've been written up legally by Statute Ladies and gentlemen. We've seen those to be ignored just like they were in Pennsylvania where the deadline for ballot-counting in Pennsylvania was written into the law and the judge ignored. That just happened. So I'll take a hard pass on the fact that we're relying on judges. I'm just saying do we have some legal avenue? Yeah you say, well, maybe it'll go to the Supreme Court the Supreme Court will decide and say, Hey, we're stopping this counting this ridiculous. These are not legitimate ballots. Well, what happens if it's four four? Well, Anton, brings up his piece today. He says this argument is not original but bears repeating. Democrats, have assured the American people that unless Joe Biden wins a landslide they will litigate the living hell out of the two thousand election you're damn right they will. One likely outcome given the potentially huge number of lawsuits and the slow and cumbersome nature of the legal process is that in order to have a president by January twenty, first, the Supreme Court will need to intervene as it did in December of two thousand like I just said. Listen to this folks. Pay Close attention. In that case, what happens if the court splits four four? Who Decides? That is not appear to be a clear constitutional mechanism. And Unresolved Electoral College vote constitutionally goes to the house. But what if because of the legal chaos electors are not designated? Well, then what? We decide the election, the streets. Can't have a four four tie. We need a full complement of nine Supreme Court justices now. Make the appointment and the confirmation now, no delays you are in charge. act like it. Even. The new. York. Times agrees really hat tip my. Twitter feed right here. Pick this out. This was an old op ed written by The New York Times and I quote. New York Times editorial board. Every day that passes without the. Ninth Justice undermines the Supreme Court's ability to function and leaves millions of Americans waiting for justice clarity as major legal questions unresolved. Yeah. Thank You New York does. So now we got. Baba we got Biden in the New York Times on the record. Yeah, we need nine. Folks I'm worried here. Alarm, you is not an alarmist show we will handle it. We always have. But you should be worried to. Let's say St Start rewriting their election laws like a Pennsylvania judge did a politician pretending to be judge there's Pennsylvania courts where they rewrote Pennsylvania election law and so now you can count ballots after the election here but that's not what Pennsylvania loss where rewriting the law. You don't think those cases will go to the Supreme Court. So. Then let's say they go to the Supreme Court. And we don't have a nine seat failed and the Supreme Court because you can't count on John Roberts of course, splits four four. WHO'S THE PRESIDENT? WHO'S THE PRESIDENT? Oh data it goes to the house by December fourteenth four votes will they? What if lower courts say they won't and there's no supreme court to break that break the lower. We thought about that. Ready. Ready Now. Folks I debated doing this next segment here are still got this Jim caviezel video, which we're not. We're not leaving the show today without doing it because it is the some of the explosive. Two minutes of TV I've ever seen came out of nowhere to. May Have Jim. Caviezel on the show, we can fit it in by the way I've got some interviews stuff coming up. He's got a great movie out infidel which I can't recommend highly enough working out some of that stuff now. But I'm going to get to that. But this segment I debated strongly doing. Because what I don't want to do and I want to be crystal clear. Is Again I'm not trying to alarm anyone. But folks it is twenty twenty. And for some reason, this is the year like nineteen, sixty eight where everything decided to happen at one time. Not, having, a plan is no excuse. Tim Carney Washington examiner asks a question this morning and a piece. It's a mastery again in the show notes. But what if something happens to? Biden her trump. Early, voting creates another reason for the Electoral College. I don't WanNA sound depressing here. But folks these are all things that have to be considered. They're not spring chickens either one of these guys. I obviously, as I've said, always, about Ruth Bader GINSBURG whenever you're having these conversations, rest her soul now. I obviously don't wish ill anyone. We're all children of God. That'd be disgusting. But for us not to prepare for these types of questions given all this happened so far in twenty twenty. Is Pure unadulterated insanity. What happens if a health crisis arrives in one of these two can't follow through forget about the the the more tragic outcome what if they have to pull out of the race? Because there's some. God forbid some disease or something Not a fair question to ask what happens. Carney addresses at and this piece, and I strongly encourage you to read it Sh- wrongly. Well the electors. That's when the electors meet in state capitals what?.

turned up more cases so what started with Hey let's just pause the economy for a couple minutes has turned into a complete crackdown a lockdown it was all supposedly based on the idea then if people came out of their houses in this thing was going to be spread it is so deadly remember was very deadly turns out no it's not it's not not nearly as deadly as they told us the more people who test the more people who test positive the more people who test positive who don't get symptoms or do get symptoms and don't die the more we realize there's a lot of people that end up getting it but don't die maybe it's not that deadly after all but one person died and one person died in if you're trying to stop one person die and then we can't drive in cars or walk downstairs a walk outside this is crazy you are destroying people's livelihoods which is gonna lead to suicides divorces violence all sorts of problems in fact in fact the powder keg it was the riots and looting was partially due not to race but to people keeping people UP penned up for so long and now they had an opportunity to run outside and play and that's what they did and burned and destroyed me this has to stop this has to

people we never got a vaccine the idea that there is a panacea waiting a week or two away and if we'll just stay inside for one week is a lie it's a lie in a salon it's going to cost a lot of people the business their generational businesses I've handed down for two three four generations it's gotta stop it's gotta stop if you're at high risk to stay inside ball means if you're not be reasonable

"This is Sam Fan. Crackdown senior producer and We're we'RE GONNA be talking about the new clinical guidelines the new policy here in BC. Basically all show but first of all garth. I think we should start out by just giving people an impression of how fucking grim things are here right now. So what is what? What have the past couple of weeks look like from your point of view? Yes it's bad Overdoses our backup. They were declining bit. But they're back into as bad as they've been really for the last couple of years a harm reduction services and overdose. Prevention sites are closing in the neighborhood or they're operating at a diminished capacity. People can't social distance you know. There's there's a lot of Crowded living conditions and a lot of people. Just don't have housing so people can't put that distance between themselves. I was through the neighborhood yesterday. People were still crowded on the sidewalks and everything and last week we were able to confirm the first person who tested positive for Cova nineteen in the neighborhood so one can only assume that combination of things is is pretty bad and the other. Obviously the really really big part of this is that we keep hearing press conferences from the city that there's going to be some kind of housing option for people who are homeless or who live in a shelter. Sro and aren't able to physically distance right but we haven't. We're not seeing like any any sort of like bold action. Take place there right We we haven't heard anything like that like Vancouver. Coastal health is told people to keep their physical distance. But we're still waiting on some kind of housing option and then finally Everyone's worried about the drug supply running out so there's already been kind of reports of shortages We've heard about prices going up but you know with all the borders and everything closed It's gotta be disrupting illegal. Drugs supply the first person I thought to call was Simona Marsh on crackdowns editorial board. She's also on the board of the Vancouver Area Network of drug users but she understands a lot about sort of the supply and distribution side of the illegal market so I called her up while she was actually working at the front desk. Advan do and good. How's it going? I'm good. How are you good So you can talk to me for a few minutes. So you're talking to us through a mask right anyway little bit but you sound good to me and so you're you're behind the desk there. Advani when people are just in the room there. What's it like there is it? Is it very crowded? Is it normal? What's going on? Yeah more than usual. Yeah because it's really up to you and other places that are opening night so our people keeping you know six feet apart from each other as vca has has told us all to do. I'm not sure how Iraq here we're GONNA have a meeting about it. Yeah and part of Your Job. Sitting at that desk is now to give out harm. Reduction supplies like people can't help themselves anymore right correct. Are you worried about running out of anything? I yeah and if you run out of pipes that means people share pipes and pipes are you can transmit cove in one thousand nine on pipes. That's right I mean not only that like down here. We're dealing with both an could still having this right and you and me were texting a couple days ago and you were saying you were worried about the illicit drug supply. What's going on with that? I'm powder devils like crazy so wait explained that you mean like to get coke is now twice as expensive. Yeah the prices went. I guess not twice as expensive. They run up. So what was it before? Like four hundred three a quarter now by fifty. Three quarters ZIP right. I've never bought in quantity before. What does that? I'm I'm small time? Simona Ground Look. I've never been to really. I don't go shopping at whole foods either or like Costco like I. Don't get a jar of mayonnaise that six feet tall and I'm just like a simple one time guy so because I know you kind of have special knowledge and all this because you have as delicately put it on this show you have helped alligator. Could you say that again agricole subsidies navigator right so? But you've been in this game for a long time. What do you think's going to happen in the next couple of weeks to the supply route borders to being shut? And it's well I can see a lot of people they don't want to sell it because they don't know next one night closed so I don't think it's GonNa be did well. Let's keep in touch about how things are going with the with the drug supply. I'm just I'm interested to see what goes on and I'm kind of worried for everybody. Who relies on it so much? You know I'm worried about them like making shit going down right right. Hopefully not okay. We'll can stay safe if you can do. Ok Tedi by so Simona tells us that coke prices are up and I talked to crackdown DETTORI board. Member Jeff Loudon yesterday. And what he's seeing is a fifty percent increase in the price of down. So you know from forty dollars a quarter now. Seems like it's going for sixty quarter at least where he is. And then you know we've heard from Laura that her connections are telling her Get Ready Droughts are coming better stockpile and there's also some reports of stimulants being harder to come by right now right. So it's it's patchy and it's it's hard to get an overall picture. It always is. But you can really see the jitters now. I guess all of this begs the question of what what it is. We should be doing right now. What would help Keep people safe. I mean it's safe supply. You know I know I know we say that a lot but it's true in in nineteen but it's also been true for the whole overdose crisis and in fact I I heard about it in the last over those crisis so in Vancouver there was overdose crisis and HIV crisis in the nineties. So you actually. You sent me a poster and this is from. Is this from the event that you would have? Is this a rally or something The posters from a meeting that we put together in the summer of Nineteen Ninety Eight. You know there was a like a lot of overdoses. A lot of overdose deaths being projected For the next year and so we were having a meeting about what we can do about this. What we were saying is let's legalize and decriminalize heroin And so the poster is of a fist holding a needle with a circle of chain going around you. You drew this and then stuck in your head right so when you wanted to make the crackdown through it. Again to be the logo the show. That's right yeah and I know you know. At that time I was really new to all this is just trying to stay ahead of my dope cygnus from the day to day so yeah. I was at the meeting. I made the poster but Dean Wilson was really involved in this stuff back then and it was just around that time. He started advocating for the same thing. So I called up Dean Wilson. He's on our editorial board and he's been an activist in this town for a couple of decades everybody. Yep Yep all right. Cool he Thanks thanks for making a little time. How you doing man? Oh I'm all right I'm just I'm kind of tired today just It was good. I saw my son. And Um it's good to see people you love and that you know what I mean. 'cause we're all kind of estranged even though we all live in the same city you know what? I mean right so and so did you guys stay like six feet apart or did you manage that. I gave a big hug and that was close. Then that it was all there was it. Was you know both kept their heads? You know what I mean. It's just you know it was whether it was and if I get the shit because I gave my son a hug well too bad I guess you gotTa do you gotTa do. Yeah Yeah we both needed it so that was all there was to. Do you remember the first time you raise the idea of safe? Supply with somebody Other than another drug user. Actually it was all part of the original insights stuff in our version before it opened up Professionally and like legitimately. We wanted to give drugs out at the place. So what did you call it before before the term safe supply? How did you refer to it like just like we should give out heroin for prescription heroin or well? We always viewed it as a a medical supply of drugs for Addiction. Not for pain not for nothing else. But for addiction we could go to doctors. They would give us a a prescription and you know we always thought it'd be a lot like mastodon well. We went and picked up every day or at salons every day and went home
"Let's start the conversation by talking. About what information is getting out in the first place. It's hard to get accurate. Data about the virus is spread out of hospitals and clinics sin. So much happening so quickly. So if data and facts about the pandemic can't actually be recorded or communicated adequately. How do we know what information to trust? Well as you say Mike. It's hard to know because the information is coming so quickly because we're all on such high alert or so emotionally primed to react everything and because the whole danger of covert nineteen is that it's a new virus. We fundamentally don't understand it. That said the way a triage information is we know stuff that's coming directly from the World Health Organization and the CDC is the best. We've got trusted news. Organizations are giving us the best information they can. There are a whole lot of scientists out there trying to give us the best information they can swatting down false rumors. So there's a lot of good stuff in a massive flow and there's some bad stuff coming into nick. How should people put this information? Therre getting into context one of the things that I've been looking at and refreshing and I'm sure lots of our listeners have been to as Johns Hopkins website that shows Total confirmed cases around the globe as well as deaths from Corona virus and total recovered folks. And the thing is just by refreshing those numbers each day. It's it's rather alarming to see Even the county level here you know I've been monitoring Santa Clara and San Mateo County where I happened to live and and we see these numbers. Come OUT EVERY DAY. But it's it seems like it's difficult to put that into context when there is a lack of testing going on Particularly in the United States. And it's hard to know. How is this good? Is this bad thing scaling? Downward how should people be thinking about it with regards to context? Well I I would say that. You don't need to be constantly checking. I think because we're all at home. We're all obsessed in rural scared where maybe taking on too much of the burden of having perfect information and too much the burden of feeling like we need to really understand everything that is happening because the truth is will you and I need to do for ourselves what we need to do for our communities we need to do as reporters doesn't change based on the Johns Hopkins Chart Everyday or even every three days we know we're in a terrible situation where we have to socially distance take every precaution to the best reporting that we possibly can so. That's one thing I would say. I think there's a risk for a lot of people becoming emotionally debilitated by spending too much time seeking out perfect up to the second information when that's not what most of us need the second thing is. There's a very good question you just asked which is impossible to answer. Which is the main thing we're looking at in the main thing we're thinking that is the infection rate which until we have universal testing means almost nothing is just a proxy for the number of tests in any given area. It's basically the number. It's the number of people who are infected multiplied by the prevalence of tests and tests have been distributed in different places. Why does the pandemic looks so much worse in New York City today as we talk than in other places partly it's spread there? It's a very dense area. Bad luck started bear. Lots of people come through there and also it's one of the first places that had lots of castes. So it's very hard to read that particular line of data specifically as well well in with particular note towards testing and perfect information We heard The president bragging this week about how our testing numbers are up. And how they're better than South Korea's numbers but of course that's a flawed count because what we really need to know is testing per capita. We have a lot more people in this country than we do in South Korea and that really makes me think that this is an interesting thing to talk about because so many Americans are getting their information about the spread of the virus directly from the White House every day. There is a briefing in everyday. Millions of people are watching. So can we examine to what extent the president's comments in general have contributed to the spread of misinformation? I mean they've played a major role in the spread of misinformation starting from the very beginning where he said we had a completely under control. There's one case from China he no. That's in January. Two it will disappear. There's a series of factually incorrect statements that he made from January through the middle of March. That were contradicted by the scientists epidemiologists in the middle of March. He seemed to understand that it was in his political interest to start taking this more seriously and his tone changed with that. I believe it was the press conference on March twelfth or March Thirteenth The sort of the somber one where he didn't seem like he had has focused but where he actually seemed to have changed the way he was looking at this from a political nuisance to a serious issue that he had to deal with. But since then you're right he's gone back and forth and he has as his once said a whole bunch of things that aren't true he's been a little more excited about chloroquine than the scientists should be. He's been a little more enthusiastic about our response than maybe he should be and his statement that we should go back to work by aced Easter. If it holds people do actually go back to work on eastern if a miracle has it occurred between now and then that will be extremely dangerous so he has he has poisoned the information ecosphere on the other hand he has started also to point in the right direction. How so in that? He is now clearly focused on this working on it. And he's not denying it. He's no longer tweeting. Statistics about how much worse the flu is right. He now clearly recognizes that. This is a risk the American economy or risk to his reelection and a risk to all of us to our health. That leads me to my next question. Which is that. We're also receiving information from government outside of the United States right now and I'm wondering how much of that you think that we should sort of take at face. Value China in particular comes to mind because China's exposure to this was on the early curve of things now there are some reports suggesting that China could be getting back to work sooner than the US. And I'm wondering given the flow of information that traditionally we've had out of China how much you believe we can trust that right now. I trust the numbers in China. The question is do we trust the China got the Krona virus under control? I would say I do believe that I mean the story of information in China is fascinating because in the very beginning. There's the authoritarian blocking of information right and prosecuting people who are telling the truth about it and famously doctors who by province but I actually think that China has played since that moment a very responsible global role both within taken incredibly strong action that then quiets down the pandemic at home and then sharing resources with the world. Now there have been off a moment. The Press Secretary for Xi Jinping tweeted out some conspiracy theory nonsense about the US creating the virus. That was utterly despicable but as for the numbers I do trust that there has been substantial decline in China both because the Chinese government reporting those. But it's also the World Health Organization is over there too so The president and the White House in general have expressed a great distrust of the mainstream media. Of course we work in medium. We feel this every day They're also a lot of people who support the president in his policies who share that mistrust of the media In what ways is this general mistrust of the mainstream media affecting the spread of bad information and Is it sort of inhibiting the spread of good information? Oh Yeah it's it's extremely unfortunate one of the most tragic consequences of not just the trump administration but of the last ten years has been the decline in trust in mainstream journalism. And so now you can see that. A percentage of Republicans who believe that Corona virus is a great threat to this nation is much lower than the percentage of Democrats and that's in part because society has been filtered into a subset of people who read the free balanced press. That Myers a part of and people who don't and the breakdown of the trust that our profession had as absolutely made it harder for people to get good information. There was a period the first two weeks of March which were crucial weeks in this period when we go back and we tell the story of Krahn virus in the United States of America if we had acted on February fifteenth the way we acted on March fifteenth thousands tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of lives would be now. Why didn't we act on February fifteenth reactive on March Fifteenth? There are a lot of reasons but one of them was that there was a sense that half the country didn't trust that this was a real thing and that there were a lot of right wing pundits and people on Fox News and to some degree the president himself saying that this is the media trying to bring down trump which it was not but because that story was believed absolutely helped slow down our response. That's quite unfortunate nick to you that this kind of I don't know partisanship misinformation and distrust is also going to affect the way that we approach potential. Antibodies vaccines and cures for this. I hope not I mean my hope is that you the whole world is going to be different when this is over. All sorts of things are going to be changed from the way we organize our societies to the way we think about working from home to a million different things are GonNa Change. One thing that I hope happens. Maybe it's an opportunity for journalism to rebuild. Its trust with the public. Maybe when this is over people who didn't trust the New York Times because they think it's too partisan will realize that whatever you think of the politics of the editorial board of New York Times that the science reporting has been spot on right or if you think that the Atlantic is too critical of your favorite political candidates. You'll realize oh wait. They've done really tremendous reporting on corona virus. So it's possible that the mainstream press will win some of its
AG Barr: Trump's tweets make it 'impossible for me to do my job'; Detailing Mike Bloomberg's unprecedented 2020 campaign spending
"The president has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case however to have public statements and tweets made about the department about our people in the department make it impossible for me to do my job dark kind of blows up and pushes back on president trump's tweets on the justice department will this make their great relationship better or worse I pose that too Shannon bream shedding we surprised to see the presence it does use me the Attorney General sit down with the with the ABC reporter and say that now and I also don't think bar would have done it without someone thing going to the White House it was coming I'm not saying that you know he destructive president our strategy and go out there and make it look like I'm independent I also think though that he as a courtesy knowing that it would upset the president if he ambushed them I think that there the signal was probably sent and that's why I think we didn't see immediately to the president last night saying how dare bar you're fired I mean I think the bar is a very very smart guy I'm personally and professionally and I think that in the report and have a good relationship and I think gore is probably the president's biggest advocate with in the administration and would not ever purposely go something up without letting the president know what's coming here's how it sounded I am responsible for everything that happens in the department but the thing I'd most responsibility for are the issues that are brought up for decision and I will make those decisions based on I think is the right thing to do and I'm not going to be equally influenced by anybody and I said I'm whether it's Congress newspaper editorial boards for the president I'm gonna do what I think is right and I cannot do my job here at the park with a constant background commentary that under that is the president talking about that any kind of brought something else up I want to bring you back to the okay you wash your dishes okay you know getting something done important thing for the country really okay later okay so yeah he came out and said the quality quoted bard said the president never asked me to do anything in a criminal case he tweeted this doesn't mean this is his own words this doesn't mean I do not have as president the legal right to do so I do but I have so far chosen not to does he you know what I think if you want to talk about something like pardoning somebody shore and you in the McCarthy vertebrae piece that was like listen make things easier for your Attorney General instead of getting involved in a huge public comments were Stephen of bars that looks and I was going to change the recommendation for stone sentence anyway within the president's tweet complicate everything you know eighties in argument as as president you do have legal powers to get involved in things is called hardening people but you're going to have to do that and potentially take if you're worried about a hit Alexian your to pardon Rogers down that's what you gotta do you have the power to think here plan or anybody else who was wrongly treated by the DOJ bodies prosecutors and do that but stop tweeting so he got all kinds of legal powers he can do but I think directly quote interfering with the case the DOJ is working on is probably not one of them but that hasn't stopped the Democrats for going off cut eleven this is an abuse of power the president is again trying to manipulate federal law enforcement to serve his political interests and the president is what he is he thinks he's above the law this one must be investigated something the green just like this demands that the inspector general investigate if that guy won't resign from the house should start impeachment Attorney General William Barr ought to be ashamed and embarrassed and resign okay do you think is going to resign negative zero percent of that happening and and I don't know that the Democrats really want to launch another impeachment the track people up on the hill and that we have the whole thing barring a tough cookie he is a very smart and I think that he would handle it very well if they try to come after him you and I know everybody watches the poll numbers no the people over the impeachment thing they're scandal fatigue especially among the very important independence and I'm not sure people want to be dragged through that again even if the clothing the kind of shut that down like the now where that that's not what we're planning to do the president's numbers are better after impeachment anyone before going into an election year I think there are a lot of Democrats who are still stinging over that I don't think they're gonna try and peach Kerr and I think he'd say bring it if he had all right so yesterday Bloomberg in trouble going at it this is what trump first started many Mike is five foot four massive debt Angie who does not want to be on the debate stage with who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians no boxes please he hates crazy Bernie will with enough money possibly stop him Bernice people will go nuts trump but he went on a trauma says we know many of the same people in New York behind your back they laugh at you and call you a carnival barking clown they know you inherited a fortune and squandered it with stupid deals incompetence I have the record in the resources to feed you and I will they don't like each other and it's getting and then not even at the nomination process yeah it's ugly but remember you know Bloomberg really haven't had much of a glove laid on him because he's out there spending a ton of money but he's not on the debate stage is there a number of these talked me into the warm camp talked about yeah you know we're gonna belly ache about the fact that you're making changes the DNC's debate stage because we have a very not diverse field that we could maybe had it some of the debate rules were changed before for you know to keep people like Cory Booker comma harassed in front of a little bit more diversity in this field now you changed for Bloomberg they publicly will say that's terrible but they privately all day good we're finally getting it bloom on the stage because no one can lay a glove on him right now face to face he's just out there spending all that money and all the time the super Tuesday states so I think that you have to remember one he gets into the fray you know I think some of the sheen will come off of him I mean the media seems very very excited about him because they're terrified about Bernie they don't think anybody else is ready to you know by now being away they're kind of putting all their eggs in the Bloomberg basket the left and I think one shot he start getting roughed up by the Democrats you are anxious to get him that's one thing but the president deed to do go way back and the president not afraid to call names and here's the thing even my grammar never ask for any box or anything else in many you seem on the debate stage what is everybody get anything easy standing on a box the president had put that in our brains and will always going to be thinking about a Democrat again all right and I got to bring into Bloomberg's response to the president's attention cut seventeen I am not afraid of Donald Trump Donald Trump is ahead of us is the freedom us and that's why he can Sweeting all the time if he doesn't mention yeah you got a big problem but the president tech me again this morning on Twitter thank you very much Donald he sees our poll numbers and I think it's fair to say he is scared because he knows I have the record and the resources to defeat him for that yes it does yet in the records interesting he has to apologize for used to brag about so how is he going to do this stop and frisk low crime rates I shouldn't have done it okay then do apologize for low crime you like what's happening now in New York are you pro homeless so are you going to say that you were wrong over and over again for seven years now you're right in twenty twenty yet you are going to run and fiscally responsible hi could I focus on crime and counter terror and now you got to worry about your tone he opened up yesterday in a speech any apologize right away I don't know I don't know how he's going to twist his way out of this well I think he will with the help of the left and mainstream media who is I mean if a Republican the cut saying a lot of these things even they said listen I've evolved on that and I don't believe that anymore you and I both know it would be non stop that you would be hearing about this person the rate that we can arrange a leading the country I think that the media is gonna help reimbursement it's over and get sort of a cap on it because they're counting on him I mean all media I mean left leaning content and that kind of thing they're counting on him to save the party and win the nomination and go after trump at this point he's right on one thing she does have incredible resources so he can definitely argue that as he looked at the democratic field in voters' intent wants them I'm gonna spend two billion dollars of my own money or more if I have to number the president right now sitting in a two hundred million dollar war chest the trump people are feeling good but when you have somebody who says I will open up the coppers and not stop until I win that's going to be attractive to a lot of primary focus and you know the whole thing up I'll have a record to back it up people are gonna debate that because the stuff going to keep coming out but I just don't think it's really going to hurt him

What are the consequences of Trump's impeachment trial?
"And joining us now John store who is a contributing writer the Washington monthly in the editor and publisher of the editorial board a daily newsletter about politics in plain English for the common good way he just write the article Donald Trump will have his revenge when he does be ready welcome to background briefing John Stoll thank you for having me Sir John last week's activities particularly the closing vote on Friday where the Republicans voted against having any witnesses or any documents in this bogus said thing that they call it a trial in the Senate the impeachment trial there wasn't a trial it was clearly there the vote was orchestrated behind the scenes by Mecom none of it was accidental and you're right that Lamar Alexander is the final act was doing his friend Susan Collins Republican made a big favor with these very Collins I'm popular and facing reelection could safely vote yes said that she could not have campaign at home with her to keep her moderate reputation intact so that's an example of how it was orchestrated so what do you expect in the next couple of days we've got that super ball today Sunday proceeded on fox with an interview between president trump and shown Hannity that'll be a love fest and then more wrangling in the Senate somewhat few trial on Monday and perhaps even on Tuesday state of the union Tuesday evening and then Wednesday the vote to acquit trump says that's the schedule but one of the consequences do you think to the American people well the consequences are going to be that it was a sham trial that is going to not do the president any favors I think the problem is that the American voters have a very short memory and the media tends to track that pattern itself the student is soon as Lamar Alexander voted no that was pretty much the beginning of the end of the media's attention to the impeachment trial in the Senate it will I think by the time we get to Wednesday we will barely even remember that there was an impeachment trial on on on but last week and all of that is that is going to be reinforced by normal things like there's a Superbowl and then there's the the Iowa caucuses coming up and so there's a good a normal things but is going to be deep and much more cynically by Sean Hannity interviewing the president you know during the most watched eight of TV the end of the year and it is it should be troubling to people it might might take in all of this is that we have we all have to be better citizens so it's very easy to point the finger at the Republicans say they're doing this to us Democrats and liberals I can feel a sense of powerlessness like all my god I can't believe what's going on this is terrible and then there's a kind of urge to just walk away well where are you going to walk away too this is a **** this either you're going to you know you're either you're an American or you're gonna leave this country and most people are not going to leave this country and and what do you get what do you want to do if you're going to walk away you cannot vote you know you're not going to participate but yet that reality is that yes a lot of people won't vote they won't participate and that's it exactly what somebody like trump wants to see to see so so everything that I've been writing last week no matter how much doom and gloom that there might be he is really an effort to urge people to goose them into seeing this is really bad but we we really each of us has to do our part and our part is voting apart is talking about this I don't mean like being angry all the time because I don't think that's humanly sustainable but we definitely have to keep these crimes that the president committed at the forefront of our conversation so the impatient process itself of course almost from day one is trump is reminded that the American people every opportunity gets and his supporters do and it resonates amongst the forty percent that support him that the Democrats route to get it from day one and until she the record reflects that I remain of yelling at a local congressman I think very early in the first months of trump's administration when he went to the floor the house and call for impeachment and it's been going on for some time Nancy Pelosi resisted it and finally obviously couldn't resist anymore because of pressure from the base if you will the democratic base but what happened in the Senate is both predictable and inevitable to my mind and my fear is that we have reached a point in this culture in America where right a wrong don't matter win or lose is all that counts and the Republicans are winners and the Democrats to lose and I have a think I have a terrible sense that the Democrats can have a hard time they don't have anybody running for president looks like they can beat trump I don't know that they're putting any effort into winning back the Senate and they could even lose the house so unless they do what you said and they have to do that in droves everybody has to vote every last person has to vote in this country to get rid of this guy because the Russian's potent and they're gonna do what they can to keep him in power they'll cheat and he's actually he'll actually encourage him to change his already done that he done it last time he got caught impeached for trying to do it again and he will do it now that he's been exonerated he'll do it in spades so this is the landscape ahead I mean tell me I'm being pessimistic no no I don't think you're being pessimistic sorry no I don't think you're being pessimistic but I also don't see hopelessness and us either I think it's a very liberals tend to kind of pretend a little bit the liberals and what I mean by pretenders that liberals are liberalism is not is not political liberalism is really a state of mind it's a it's a set of preferences it's it's more in line with fact and reason that's what makes it liberal right if I want something and I worked to achieve that goal I pro as a liberal I would seek a democratic process work toward consensus marshal the facts in my favor or maybe spend them a little bit but but all that's in the interest of using persuasion instead of force to get what I want right well you know conservatives are I put the that word in quotes conservatives don't think that way you know that it's all about power and morals or morality is either an impediment or to tool to exploit to get what what you want and then in the end it in if it if it is an impediment really just run it right over and just you know don't worry about it and you to an you're not worried about appearing hypocritical either because the never matter to you anyway it also liberals tend to be very long term oriented you know they we tend to think about ten years from now what we want right conservatives are very very myopic they think about what's going to happen tomorrow all of this explains Mitch McConnell's behavior you know we a lot of people would say well exoneration equivalents going without exoneration is not much of an acquittal is it and he that may be true but he doesn't care because he will he will win today right now it's complicating all of this is that we have a very this is not that I don't mean to speak in monolithic terms here but for the most part the Washington press corps is entitled moral that's how I put it it is it will not come to a moral conclusion based on facts because to come to a moral conclusion would be a value judgment that the profession tends to purge from its members in in to be anti Marlys actually complementary to the profit oriented ness of the industry so with the problem with this impeachment trial is the problem of his coverage I mean is the most attention was paid to you know Wheeler won't for Republicans vote to call for witnesses and if they do or don't that's the measure of whether the president wins or loses right less attention was paid to the actual evidence pointing to guilt you know and and I laughed because it it it it's ridiculous right I mean if we had a moral press we would be looking at the reality which is expressed by way of evidence pointing to a moral conclusion right but what you get is this the well known both cider ism you know that the Democrats say this the Republicans say that in truth and lies are treated equally and it's a no so the conflict between the two parties is prioritized over the substance of the evidence against the president so all of this kind of being a citizen only know what they know because the press tells them right and if the press is telling them there's just two sides fighting all the time well that's what usually most people most of the time you're going to understand that to be the case when it comes to

The predatory publishers sucking science's blood (Summer Season)
"Quake the doot of a Predator as a reporter. You get all kinds of of little suggestions. Tips complaints this. And you can't deal with them all. This one intrigued me. I had started to hear about similar complaints and sort of once. You hear enough of them the signal adds up you think. Maybe there's a story here. What was I seeing What what the clued that? That Mela rash well. I was a researcher myself. I was a faculty librarian at my university and I did. Research probably starting five six years ago I I was always looking for publishing opportunities. I started getting letters and I started to receive these emails. Sort of saying extremely nice. Nice things to me that basically said call for Paper Journal Editors Wanting Me To submit my manuscript to their journal and they had lots of grammatical errors in addition to that one and the emails and then generally speaking editor. I don't say very nice things about you and they don't typically they don't write to you and ask you to submit a manuscript. Will you ever tempted to meet. No no I mean I'm a clinical epidemiologist in some of these journals were lifted from soil. Science right why would somebody from soil science be asking me saying Nice things about me. They wouldn't no me from anywhere he's smells a rat. I did maybe several but that rash or several thousand read via now. Well and truly on the loose predatory publishes and the Predatory Journal has become a mega industry global in reach ending ending destructive potential. In fact you're going to hear from someone who believes that the industry represents the big threat to don in the inquisition shen the US. Federal Court recently ordered one of the biggest of the company to pay up over fifty million. US dollars only make. International headquartered voted in Hyderabad in India but also operating in the US climbed the publish hundreds of medical journals found to employ deceptive business practices essentially entrapping fantasy to offer published in the Journal or participate in conferences. The Doug the ruling bye-bye predatory publishes well. Let's see if Any of that money actually moves anywhere. It's not clear with a the group will cough up that fifty million dollars which is an estimate of how much the company made from customers over a period. All whether we'll appeal we tend to leave leaked of question to its representative yet to receive a reply but it is nice. Clear message to all the Sake Journal. Publishers of the world that they're being watched watched and there could be consequences. Joan Bohannon thought journalists and now director to add an artificial intelligence data in San Fran called primer. They didn't biscuit slipping under the radar. And using American Canadian European banks to move money millions of dollars of money from a complicit gains so this court ruling basically makes that extremely inconvenient to do now. John was to present evidence in the kite board again. Anthem IQ Group by the Federal Trade Commission. Because he'd had an unusually Hansa with the publisher so all mix was one of hundreds of publishers offers that I tested in sting operation. I wrote some computer code to generate thousands of very bad scientific papers. They have been negative kind of legendary inside the back in two thousand twelve John Reporting for the general died and the Expression Predatory Journal Common News. there was a guy named Geoffrey Yu who was probably the only person around making in a big public. Stink about this and trying to actually Shine a light on it. It was very very bold effort. He had something called feels list or at least it became known as beal's lest my name is Jeffrey Bill. And I'm a retired academic librarian from University of Colorado Denver. But make the deal. Beal Blackley fame and a climb and karate he was the first to coin. The Phrase Predatory Journal the Journal. Publishers hated being malysz because it it stigmatizes them in meant that their income was decreased. Most of the predatory publishers are predatory not only in their publishing but in just the way they operate in general and they would use the heckler's actors veto. They would call the library director and complain about me and they would try to annoy people at my university as much as possible in order to manipulate those people at the university to make me stop the list so that their complaints would stop. I also received several threats of legal action including think it was is in twenty twelve international threatened to sue me for one billion dollars one billion dollars. It was just a threat. What I learned from it is that you can basically basically pay an attorney? Five hundred dollars all right a threatening letter so they they did that but they never followed through with. It was never introduced in any court consequences consequences. Jeffrey of running that black leaked were immense. And I'll come back to that. One estimate suggests that there are at least eight thousand predatory journals it is just one publisher of many but Jeffrey Bill provocatively cold. The the evil empire of Predatory Publishing I stand Dan by that statement and what they do is they really hurt a lot of people. You know the scholarly publishing system works on the honor system and people operate in good faith but oh mix international has has totally broken all that down. They use a lot of spamming to solicit article manuscripts from researchers they have journal titles that match the titles of respected journals. Usually one word off enough to confuse people that it might be the respected journal in the `field they will at People's names to their editorial boards without the person's permission people from top universities top researchers in the field and they'll use their identity to promote the journal and when the person finds out about it and ask them to remove their name. They don't remove it they just leave it there because they're operating operating from foreign country. There's really nothing you can do about it. And they especially prey on young researchers in emerging researchers researchers who don't speak English as their first language. It's not just dont. As from developing countries that a toggle though that even acknowledged problem clinical epidemiologist. David moas taste the Croats at reaching into some of America's most delayed institutions including Harvard in the analysis that we did where we looked at a close to two thousand thousand articles published in Predator journals.

People think that they're sending the manuscript to a legitimate respected journal. When it's really just a phony dough mix international journal and then they quickly accept the paper without any peer review and then send them an invoice and that point the authors realized that something is wrong because There was really no peer reviewed done yet papers accepted and they have this two thousand dollars invoice that comes through email and the olmecs demanding payment. Most of them asked to withdraw the paper when they realized that they've been duped. But then omits says says you can't withdraw your paper unless you pay US withdrawal fee. An often than olmecs will publish the article quickly and one of their journals and then and they can't submit it anywhere else. Because that would be duplicate submission it would be publishing the same article twice. which is something not supposed to do that?

One hundred percent William vein looks fantastic. And what is he telling is is he sounds like reverse mortgages or gold or whatever. George hamilton. I don't think so anymore. I think he looks cartoonish now. Don't you words? Soul bronze. But that's always been a stick. Yeah. But sometimes like Wayne Newton for awhile had a look. And now have you seen Wayne lately? Just doesn't work. What is the key to maintaining that look genes? Good genes you because you've got the fancy tight jeans. I mean, you the the skinny pants jeans? Yeah. The the the genes absolutely help. Let's be honest for some people. It's the hair, right. If you retain your hair. And if the color doesn't turn gray what else Lindsey for guys if they're now in there. I don't know fifty sixties and seventies. And they still look young. What's the key? I think a lot of it is behavior like behavior, and I know gene's plays into it. But like your your body like I think back to my grandfather, Mike, my mom's father, and my entire memory of him was like this big old jolly beer belly not beer belly. But you know, like a big old jolly like older man belly the Buddha. And I mean, we're talking like. That would have been his late sixty seventies eighties. Whereas my father, you know, even when he passed away was very thin then in shape, and I think that you know, like the movie vice about Cheney, Yup. Wait makes you look older. I think that's true. Adam, right. The weight and jolly your oh, yeah. Yeah. I even noticed like five to Mitch. Psalter wine the next morning awake up. And I'm like oh Hello there. What are those things falling down? And then I do, you know, some yoga you want to call that day Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday this to assist a normal day. All right. We we will get into politics multiple times today because we had two enormous stories break yesterday. I guess they didn't really break wasn't like a all of a sudden it's the state of the union who didn't see that coming. So the state of the union what the president said what he didn't say the role in the ANSI Pelosi the role of women in congress many aspects of that and then the Amy klobuchar shar announcement which is coming this weekend. Adam and Lizzie can we ever think of an announcement where you gathered together, she hopes thousands upon thousands of people at boom island, and you said I'm not running for that office. Well, I mean is there anything more Minnesotan than that? Would be the most Minnesota deal plans. This big old events there's hot chocolate and sign edge. And then she gets up there and apologizes for not running. I can't do it. But lays out a plan. There'd be a lot of disappointed people at him. She if she if you made the commitment, I know there'd be people listening right now who don't want to say that there is something recent that was similar to that that we thought. And then there was a big announcement of summit was the opposite decision of what we well. I think I know we've had press conferences, right where people have surprised us. But if you ever had a public event where literally you're telling will, they would love hundreds of thousands. They would love to have so many people that boom island sinks to the ground. But everybody gets off right? Okay. I'm not saying the closure. We've added some. I think what comes to mind as friends over at the target center. Had a couple major announcement press conference. That kind of fizzled out before. More concerts and things. Oh for sure. There's no doubt are coming here. What about that Garth Brooks scam that half the public fell for a couple of months ago? Whole the governor governor Dayton didn't get us. Another concert says exactly what I'm saying. So let's start with Amy klobuchar, by the way, are you someone who saying that this is all the the bayton switch that she's going to have all the folks there, and she's going to go left when you think she's going to go, right? Go ahead. Make up your own political jokes. Let's pose it this way. So whenever one you think it's possible she won't run and number two. Do you want her to run? Let's go with that.

Laredo is the only metropolitan area only town or city that does not have a offense. In texas. And. So where is the where's the leadership saying we want this? Every bit of the discussion has been about the wall, which is by the way is not a negative. But, but where is the real negotiation that would be the Democrats asking for something? You know, if you're one of the recipients, you're looking at this going, why aren't you guys asking for something? The president was willing to offer something on that. The only one I've heard even mentioned that in recent days is Joe Manchin when he said while the president was willing to go three years why not ten years. He's the only one. Yeah.

But he's not going to sign anything without he said without wall funding, right? I don't know. Well, look he is said that before. And he has signed without wall funding.

I ag- the the president. This is a time if you were going to be loud on it. This would be the time to be loud. Again, Andy be promoting it and have all of your people out there with this is the only thing that you're talking about identifying the fact is we have said before that there for open borders eat throws tweets out. But it's almost as if the president still believes that tweeting is the major way of marketing anything that you wish to market. Yeah. Right. And I really wonder I have to this question has to be asked. We I don't I haven't seen it as much in the last couple of days. I did see it in the run-up to last week. The president disdain strong stand with him. No, he wasn't. The president was willing to crumble in December before Christmas completely and just say, well, no, I'm gonna sign the spending Bill we're going to get the money from somewhere else. It was it wasn't until and was it who said it again. Somebody said it yesterday. The president only crumble because talk radio controls him. I forgot who said that somebody said that yesterday that that's the only reason that he did it. There's some truth to that. Now, it wasn't because the talk show host themselves set it, and he didn't wish to disappoint them. What they did. And it just wasn't talk show host. It was others. It was drudge we've said probably the drudge headline..

"The Washington Post editorial board continued warning that the stakes in Tuesday's election are much higher than usual calling. It a once in a generation event. Well. I don't think. So I don't think so I mean, the hyperbole that is being fueled right now the panic that is just pouring into the engine and igniting over President Trump is out. It's just off the charts the left sees tomorrow's election as a lifeline. And so they have gone on and on and on how this is the most important election in the history of elections. And let me say this it is it is but not because of President Trump not because of anything other than we are in such a precarious position. That we have to decide are we going to be democratic socialists. Or are we going to be a constitutional Republican? That's Republic that still believes in capitalism. That really is what it's about. Let's stop making it about personalities. Now, the post says this election is about something more elemental what kind of country. Do we see what kind of country? Do we see today and what kind of country? Do we see for the future that makes these midterms? Unlike anything in recent past on that they're correct, but it has nothing to do with hatred, Xena phobia, it's cetera et cetera. Because a lot of that is either spun or an out and out lie. What happened in Pittsburgh had nothing to do with President Trump nothing to do with President Trump? What's happening on the border really has nothing to do with president. Trump. It all has to do with what kind of country, we're going to be at constitutional Republic or democratic socialist. The election is important. But every election is important people have written to me, and I'm going to get into some of the letters Glenn. When are we going to stand up and fight, you know, when right now right now, you're not going to stand up and fight. You're going to go into the polls. And if every conservative within the sound of my voice, if we all go and vote we will win. If you don't the left is motivated, are you? The post claims that it is so alarmed that our nation's values are at stake. Our nation's values aren't even understood anymore. What are our nation's values Washington Post? What are they because I think their life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Among those values those principles those things that we used to find the self evident. Not sure if we find themselves evident anymore why? Because we're talking about quite honestly, Donald Trump's dumps. Dump tweets when he's sitting in the John at three o'clock in the morning going. Yeah. This is going to drive them. Crazy. We shouldn't be talking about those. We should be talking about our values and not the twisted values that Barack Obama has been out talking about because now he is saying that our values are at stake because this president put broke families up and put them behind bars. Well, excuse me, President Obama and excuse me. Press. I was there. I saw it. I warned against it. I begged the media to pay attention, and no one would pay attention when this was started under Barack Obama. So now, he's trying to say see our values have been destroyed by Donald Trump. No, they were destroyed long before Donald Trump. The values crisis. It's much deeper than the values crisis Saturday, there were two examples of this. One on one hand actor Pete Davidson made fun of Republican US house candidate, Dan Crenshaw, Texas. Now, this is during a live sketch from Saturday Night Live Davidson, mocked Crenshaw's. I patch. He lost his right eye. And so he white or he he made fun of the lust. You know, the lost. I in the eye patch, and I get it. He he threw a bone to out of the six people. He made fun of he said just to show you that I'm fair. I'll do one on the other side in a race. That was guaranteed to go. The governor's way. He made fun of a guy with an eye patch because he lost his I I know I know he lost his eye in the war or something. Yeah. It was a bomb blast during this deployment in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, also on Saturday thirty nine year old Brent Taylor was killed in Afghanistan. When a member of an Afghani security force opened fire at US base. In kabul. Taylor was serving them serving there on his fourth deployment in the national guard. He was the former mayor of north Ogden in Utah. He leaves behind a wife and seven children Taylor said his life was oriented towards three loyalties, God, his family and his country. In his last Facebook post just last week Taylor wrote, quote as the US a gets ready for another election. I hope we all vote. I hope everybody back home exercises their precious, right devote, and that whether Republicans or Democrats, no matter who wins that we all remember that. We have it. Far better as Americans than anybody else. And we have more as Americans that unites us than divides us because United we stand divided. We fall God bless America. And quote. Now, how can we possibly disagree with that? We're all talking about the things that divide us. And the only things that matter that divide us are our values and our principles, and it's time to look at the big ones the ones we used to find self evident. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable, unchangeable rights, and among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And then the amendments to the constitution you have a right to speak out. You have a right to assemble with people that you want to assemble with you have a right to ask your government tough questions because you have freedom of speech. You have a right to ask questions. Nhs. I'm not sure that America even agrees with this anymore. So much of our life is about choices and perspective America finishes, making its choice tomorrow. We would be well served by a lot less hyperbole. We would be well served by a lot less pointing of the fingers and freaking out over personalities. And a lot more perspective and decency and actual getting up off of the couch and voting. It's Monday, November fifth. This is the Glenn Beck program. Good morning. Hello, stu. How are you, sir? Really? Well, Glenn yourself. Gosh. I haven't seen you in what three hours. Arrived.
