"I'm an actor, activist and freedom fighter Brian Edwards ticket. I mostly do journalism, which kind of sounds boring now and together, we host upfront. KPFA is local to our Morning magazine. We bring you breaking news debates, Deep times reporting. City Hall and the Statehouse, housing and transportation, prisons and police and everything big that happened while you were sleeping. And it means the two of us get to hang out with you at seven a.m. right after democracy now on up front. Hundreds of protesters vowing to do whatever it takes to stop. A Canadian based companies push to replace an aging pipeline blocked the pump station today in northern Minnesota, with some people chaining themselves to construction equipment before police began making arrests. Environmental and tribal groups say Enbridge Energy's plan to rebuild Line three, which would carry Canadian tar sands oil and regular crude from Alberta to Wisconsin, which worsen climate change and risk spills in sensitive areas where Native Americans harvest wild rice hunt fish gather medicinal plants. And claim treaty rights. By evening, At least 30 people had been arrested by state police and sheriff's officers, but the number was growing rapidly, according to Ashley Fairbanks, a spokeswoman for Treaty People gathering. None of them appeared to resist. As allies chanted, We love you. Protesters said that treaty people gathering was the largest show of resistance yet to the project. The crowd showed no signs of leaving hours after an earlier protester at the headwaters of the Mississippi River roughly about 20 minutes away where they chanted Stop line three, and water is life. Actress Jane Fonda is one of the protesters, and she held signs with the President Joe Biden's image that said which side are you on? She urged protesters to keep pressuring Biden to halt construction. So his administration could study any harm to the environment and indigenous people. The Mississippi River is one of the water crossings for the pipeline, Fonda said. Line three protesters are going to standing rock this place. Referring to the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is owned by a different company and was the subject of major protests near the Standing Rock Indian reservation in the Dakotas in 2016 and 17. Enbridge says the 19 sixties era line three pipeline is deteriorating and can run it. Only about half its original capacity. Is this. The new line made from stronger steel will better protect the environment while restoring its capacity and ensuring reliable deliveries to U. S refineries. More than 300 groups delivered the letter to Biden last month, calling on him to direct the Army Corps of Engineers to suspend or revoke and bridges federal clean water permit for the project. They urged Biden to follow the example he set on the very first day of his administration when he canceled the disputed Keystone XL pipeline, citing worries about climate change. The Justice Department announced today is recovered most of the multi million dollar crypto currency ransom payment to hackers after a cyber attack that caused the operator of the nation's largest fuel pipeline to halt its operations last month. Justice Department formed a special task force to combat the rise and mostly Russian based hacker groups attacking Western government and business interests. This was its first operation. Georgia based colonial pipeline, which supplies roughly half the fuel consumed on the East Coast, temporarily shut down its operations last month after a gang of hackers known as dark side Broke into its computer system. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco told reporters that dark side profits from disrupting US interests dark side and its affiliates have been digitally stalking US companies for the better part of last year. And indiscriminately attacking victims that include key players in our nation's critical infrastructure. Colonial officials have said they paid roughly $4.4 million in ransom in hopes of bringing itself back on line as soon as possible. The ransom was paid in Bitcoin, which is the favorite currency of hackers. Because of the perception, it's more difficult to trace. Israeli police said today they blocked a planned procession by Jewish alter nationalists through parts of Jerusalem's Old city following warnings that it could reignite tensions. That led to a punishing 11 day war with Gaza. The parade, which celebrates Israel's capture of east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war was underway on May 10th when Hamas fired rockets from Gaza towards the city. Setting off heavy fighting. Some 254 people were killed in Gaza 13 in Israel before a ceasefire took effect on May 21st. The war was preceded by weeks of clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian demonstrators in the Old city and in the nearby neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah, or Jewish settlers have waged a decades long campaign to evict Palestinian families from their homes. Israel's attorney general today declined to intervene in the cases of several of the families, making it more likely the evictions will be carried out, possibly in the coming weeks. That could also reignite violence. The settlers are using a 1970 law that allows Jews to reclaim formally Jewish properties lost during the 1948 war surrounding Israel's creation, a right denied to Palestinians who lost property in the same war. At least 150 Palestinian households in Sheikh Jarrah and the neighborhood of Silwan, both near the old city are risk of eventual affection. The procession, which had intended to go through the old city's Muslim quarter, is seen by Palestinians as a provocation. Over the weekend, Israeli police arrested and released a veteran reporter for the Al Jazeera satellite channel who had regularly been covering the Sheikh Jarrah protests, and on Sunday, authorities stormed the home of a leading activist in the neighborhood. Arresting her and her brother. The siblings were later released. Renewed tensions in East Jerusalem or fighting with Hamas in Gaza could complicate Israel's shaky politics. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's opponents last week said they have formed a coalition that could remove the prime minister from office after a 12 year term. The new coalition is expected to be sworn into office in the coming days More from reporter Simon marks the implications of the formation of a new Israeli governing coalition for the Biden administration. Just three weeks ago, Washington was convulsed by the war waged by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Now, with the coalition headed by Naftali Bennett, hoping to win a parliamentary vote of support over the next few days, things in Televisa are about to change Bob McMahon with the U. S Council on foreign Relations because of the say the diversity of this coalition is really will push aside some of the fractious issues and basically pumped down the road and anything like ramping up West Bank settlements or trying to an excellence Bank for that matter, And in so doing that becomes a bit easier to manage for the vitamin ist regime, which would rather not be dealing with thorny Israeli politics but also A resurgence of fighting with the Palestinians just come through this period Ceasefire is still holding between Hamas and the Israeli government after the worst outbreak of violence in seven years. So all in all, you could have a coalition that is actually taking a more moderate stance on some of the fractious issues. Despite Bennett's own preference on settlement issues, you could have a moderation going on that will sort of come things and that means for the Biden administration, maybe a chance to start, you know, building up on a behind the scenes way the relationship with Israel and not get into some The more difficult issues involved in that relationship. So Father Biden White House has avoided comment on events in Israel as it waits for the coalition to take office.

"The michigan environmental council. Thanks for joining us on the pali. Kiss be safe. Thank you does your conversation with shriller. We talked about the biden clean energy program in his attacks on climate change clearly the most comprehensive attack on climate change since al gore made it an issue twenty twenty five years ago. And it's gonna be a real uphill climb because you've got the oil and gas lobby just going berserk thing. You've got republicans who depend on those industries increasingly for financial support fighting as well. We had jennifer granholm speaking to a senate energy committee for her confirmation. A committee that is loaded up with senators representing fossil fuel states. How do you think she did christine. I thought she did well. I think she could have done better. But she has to restrict her answers to the time available at not streaking. Much the thing about jennifer granholm is that she's really pragmatic i think and we saw in her eight years as governor. She did a really good job. Bringing together. the public sector private sector and the nonprofit sector in when she talks about how to handle energy and climate change she does it in a pragmatic way. I wish there was a better way to say to show or to guarantee that these people who are currently employed by you in coal and oil industries and so on there was a way to say. Look you're not going to lose a job or going to invest in you as well. And i think i think there are plans for that. But you know you can't guarantee everybody will transition into a better job but she understands transition and she understands working together and i think she did well. There were a few disingenuous. Things was at senator. The senator from wyoming zep wrestle. Jump bro yeah her state in the nation and and he showed either. I mean. I think he was just taking shots but just showed that he didn't understand the battery car relationship. That was going on in michigan when governor granholm was in and she had incentives out for these new technologies because he went after her about how basically she used our tax incentives to fund china technology. It was a lack of understanding. About how the incentives were. There was a lack of understanding about what happened with a one three. It's a lack of understanding about batteries. Demand for those batteries as well as adjacent technologies. And as long as you have an expert in this kind of technology which i believe jennifer granholm to be an expert in the policy around it not necessarily each technology. But then you have senator who just has a constituency in his not as well versed and i think you have about fifty of those in the senate right now. You can have problems with this. I don't think it has to be a fight. I think that she brings to the table. Everything that you need to compromise on this and make it as painless as possible to make this big transition. So did she do well. I thought she did well. But that doesn't mean that you know everybody else thought that i mean i had a biased. Anyway look a little bit of her testimony. First she did focus a lot of her opening. Statement on the job-creating potential of the conversion to solar and wind energy. This is a sector that every single state can benefit from the products that reduce carbon emissions are going to create a twenty three trillion dollar global market by twenty thirty. That is a massive opportunity so we can buy electric car batteries from asia.

"They've introduced a bill which would take away power from both the state and local health departments and give it to the legislature when it came to certain aspects of houses in segments of the economy. The speaker of the house said he's ready to lock arms to compromise with the governor. But i really can't call her a partner until she show. She wants to be a partner. Now here's the quiz for our listeners. In his actually. It's a quiz for me to the name of the speaker of the house. nobody does it. I know i have. I'm looking at it right now. And look it up. And that's where she starts ahead. Everybody knows who gretchen. Whitmer is two thirds of the people. Think she's doing a good job on this. Nobody knows who the speaker of the houses he's got a minimal platform and he's got minimal leverage when it comes to public opinion now. He's got more leverage in republican districts. Where there's more pushback against some of the restrictions that have been in place especially amongst restaurants that refuse to shut down even if they get find even if they lose their liquor licenses but the reality is she's jingling from a full deck and he's basically got a bluff on a lot of powers the the leverage they've got is pretty minimal. They can't sit on the money and refused to allocate the federal money to be used for covert relief. That's just self defeating in the law. Run a why won't the legislature approved this money. They said well. It's the governor's fall. 'cause she won't compromise with us they don't care about fault they want results. And let's let's just be clear on this. They keep saying she. She's not treating us like the equal branch that we are. As i mentioned earlier they are still an equal branch of government. The courts are still an equal branch of government where they're not equal. Is that space where you manage public health. The legislature does have a right to manage a pandemic or manage the state's pandemic response. They just don't they have a right to do certain things. The court said that we can't be in a state of emergency without the legislature's approval every twenty eight days. Okay fine we will manage this pandemic in a way that that doesn't hold up because if she went back to them to stay in a state of emergency that would have never been renewed. And i wanna point out that click on. Detroit had an article mentioning that. Researchers at the university of michigan said the pause to save lives mandate in mid-november likely save thousands of lives during the.

"What I can tell you about? The trump policies toward Ukraine was incoherent. It depends on who talk to. They seem to be incapable of forming a quick quote. I don't mean any disrespect but it must suck to be that dumb it's been that kind of weakened lansing in Washington. We're here without a subpoena in an effort to bring some clarity to this mess. This is the Michigan podcast. The Weekly Update on Michigan Policy and politics and the national news. Impacting our pleasant peninsulas. I'm well Sarg. Were just a year away from the twenty twenty general election in already. Nearly two hugh million dollars has been spent on the Senate race in Michigan. Does Gary Peters really outlaw hamburgers. I've Christine Barry State. Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirk. He takes what looked to be a compromise on the state budget pushed through the legislative meat. Grinder I'm any care. Harden Enbridge is charged with peddling battling a lot of Baloney when it comes to financial responsibility for any fuel spills and the Straits of mackinac ended a non meat themed news item. New York City approves proves a major change in how votes are counted a change. That could be coming to a ballot box near you. It's called ranked choice voting or instant runoff elections. We'll talk with one of the leaders leaders in the efforts to promote the reform throughout Michigan. Let's begin though as we do. It seems like every week with the state budget that never gets resolved at nine. AM on Thursday governor. Whitmer said Ed. She thought she had a compromise. She did with the speaker of the House but in a matter of hours it was back to situation normal all fouled up compliments of Senate Republican Republican leader. Mike Kirke Christine. What the hell happened? Well as you know. They sent their budget through back in the beginning when it was due like a few minutes before it was due new governor Whitmer went through and did some line item vetos and then she did some transfers with the state administrative board. We've covered all of that. Well right now. The House in the Senate Republicans have put together some supplemental and Governor Whitmer. has her own supplementals in this is to start putting some funding where they can agree that it should go so they would probably put some money back into pure Michigan they would fund. Those are all hospitals They're probably looking at a funding for the autism project. Set were cut so these are all things that we agree that we need money on. The problem is the process. Senate majority leader. Mike Shuki simply won't move forward until the governor agrees to give up some of her executive authority the Authority that she used the first time which is to transfer funds within departments. His office told the the press. That governor Whitmer was untrustworthy and should not have the authority. That essentially goes with that office and the governor said. She's not willing to give away any powers of the governor's owners office. The speaker of the House Lee Chatfield says they all have concerns. But they're trying to move forward. I mean he sounds like he's being less emotional and and More professional or diligent than Mike Shirk is right now just about trying to move forward and get some progress. They talked about adding some boilerplate language to the bills. which would mean that if the legislature sent over appropriations and included did the words unless otherwise provided by law? That meant that whitmer couldn't move anything around or the governor whoever it is and Whitmer said well. I'm willing to do that. That for the supplementals. But I'm not willing to restrict myself in any future thing so ultimately what it comes down to is Mike. Shuki walked away because he does not want her to be able to move any money around. And so we're back at square one. It doesn't seem to be an argument over money. You guys that seems to be about this process which makes me concerned that you know. We're just letting these egos getting away again. I kind of get a feeling that there might be a pinch of misogyny involved there too. I'm not sure that his besides that he is as much as it is. A lack of trust on both sides had breakfast with a a bunch of friends who go back way. Many many years in state government over the weekend and what we're talking about was term limits is ended the building of relationships between the two parties in the legislature between the legislature and the governor people are here today and gone tomorrow and they really don't have an opportunity to develop bonds of trust we said Specifically Randy Richard Ville the former Senate majority leader was still in charge charge that he and governor whitmer would be able to work this out even though they don't agree politically at a lot of things but they trusted each other and that's because they had a long term relationship working together during the Senate but enter Mike Shirk who doesn't have that long relationship with the governor and his spokesperson says quote unless it has the weight of Law Governor Widmer's proven herself to be untrustworthy. That is one hell of a statement for the governor to promise. I will not do something and for the spokesperson for the majority leader. To basically say she's lying. I think I don't think it's justified. I know that they based it on her going out on the you know when she campaigned. She told the autism alliance that she was an ally I for them. And then that money was vetoed. You know it's a bigger story than that. It's not that simple. And it doesn't make her untrustworthy. She's just using the political leverage of this to bring them back to the table and Turkey's being very stubborn about it or a part of it has to everybody in the legislature. Nobody's been around that long and for sixteen years. We've had governors who really didn't know how to use all the levers of power you have to go back to John. Anglers sixteen years ago seventeen years ago. Who knew how to do that? They hadn't seen him operate Gretchen. Whitmer did she understood how Angler was able to fully use the powers of the governor's office and the legislature just doesn't like it and that is is why we still don't have a deal and so I I think you know the GOP is really good. They've got there in terms of like social media. They keep putting out these messages of Whitman's veto did this and it did that and here. She is promising that she was an ally I mean. They're just constantly hammering away at people really Louis should fight back against that because that messaging is just disingenuous. It just is not. It's not true to what's happening. It's also I don't think a winning a message for them just given the optics of the governor who is known statewide and pretty well light statewide as opposed to the legislature. Who Most people don't know nobody knows who might shirk is his Outside of his district and even within his district a lot of people don't know who he is and as a result of it. Oh no I'm they're not going to necessarily gravitate is message right now.

"What I can tell you about? The trump policies toward Ukraine was incoherent. It depends on who talk to. They seem to be incapable of forming a quick quote. I don't mean any disrespect but it must suck to be that dumb it's been that kind of weakened lansing in Washington. We're here without a subpoena in an effort to bring some clarity to this mess. This is the Michigan podcast. The Weekly Update on Michigan Policy and politics and the national news. Impacting our pleasant peninsulas. I'm well Sarg. Were just a year away from the twenty twenty general election in already. Nearly two hugh million dollars was spent on the Senate race in Michigan. Does Gary Peters really outlaw hamburgers. I've Christine Barry State. Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirk. He takes what looked to be a compromise on the state budget pushed through the legislative meat. Grinder I'm any care. Harden Enbridge is charged with peddling battling a lot of Baloney when it comes to financial responsibility for any fuel spills and the Straits of mackinac ended a non meat themed news item. New York City approves proves a major change in how votes are counted a change. That could be coming to a ballot box near you. It's called ranked choice voting or instant runoff elections. We'll talk with one of the leaders leaders in the efforts to promote the reform throughout Michigan. Let's begin though as we do. It seems like every week with the state budget that never gets resolved at nine. AM on Thursday governor. Whitmer said Ed. She thought she had a compromise. She did with the speaker of the House but in a matter of hours it was back to situation normal all fouled up compliments of Senate Republican Republican leader. Mike Kirke Christine. What the hell happened? Well as you know. They sent their budget through back in the beginning when it was due like a few minutes before it was due new governor Whitmer went through and did some line item vetos and then she did some transfers with the state administrative board. We've covered all of that. Well right now. The House in the Senate Republicans have put together some supplemental and Governor Whitmer. has her own supplementals in this is to start putting some funding where they can agree that it should go so they would probably put some money back into pure Michigan they would fund. Those are all hospitals They're probably looking at a funding for the autism project. Set were cut so these are all things that we agree that we need money on. The problem is the process. Senate majority leader. Mike Shuki simply won't move forward until the governor agrees to give up some of her executive authority the Authority that she used the first time which is to transfer funds within departments. His office told the the press. That governor Whitmer was untrustworthy and should not have the authority. That essentially goes with that office and the governor said. She's not willing to give away any powers of the governor's owners office. The speaker of the House Lee Chatfield says they all have concerns. But they're trying to move forward. I mean he sounds like he's being less emotional and and More professional or diligent than Mike Shirk is right now just about trying to move forward and get some progress. They talked about adding some boilerplate language to the bills. which would mean that if the legislature sent over appropriations and included did the words unless otherwise provided by law? That meant that whitmer couldn't move anything around or the governor whoever it is and Whitmer said well. I'm willing to do that. That for the supplementals. But I'm not willing to restrict myself in any future thing so ultimately what it comes down to is Mike. Shuki walked away because he does not want her to be able to move any money around. And so we're back at square one. It doesn't seem to be an argument over money. You guys that seems to be about this process which makes me concerned that you know. We're just letting these egos getting away again. I kind of get a feeling that there might be a pinch of misogyny involved there too. I'm not sure that his besides that he is as much as it is. A lack of trust on both sides had breakfast with a a bunch of friends who go back way. Many many years in state government over the weekend and what we're talking about was term limits is ended the building of relationships between the two parties in the legislature between the legislature and the governor people are here today and gone tomorrow and they really don't have an opportunity to develop bonds of trust we said Specifically Randy Richard Ville the former Senate majority leader was still in charge charge that he and governor whitmer would be able to work this out even though they don't agree politically at a lot of things but they trusted each other and that's because they had a long term relationship working together during the Senate but enter Mike Shirk who doesn't have that long relationship with the governor and his spokesperson says quote unless it has the weight of Law Governor Widmer's proven herself to be untrustworthy. That is one hell of a statement for the governor to promise. I will not do something and for the spokesperson for the majority leader. To basically say she's lying. I think I don't think it's justified. I know that they based it on her going out on the you know when she campaigned. She told the autism alliance that she was an ally I for them. And then that money was vetoed. You know it's a bigger story than that. It's not that simple. And it doesn't make her untrustworthy. She's just using the political leverage of this to bring them back to the table and Turkey's being very stubborn about it or a part of it has to everybody in the legislature. Nobody's been around that long and for sixteen years. We've had governors who really didn't know how to use all the levers of power you have to go back to John. Anglers sixteen years ago seventeen years ago. Who knew how to do that? They hadn't seen him operate Gretchen. Whitmer did she understood how Angler was able to fully use the powers of the governor's office and the legislature just doesn't like it and that is is why we still don't have a deal and so I I think you know the GOP is really good. They've got there in terms of like social media. They keep putting out these messages of Whitman's veto did this and it did that and here. She is promising that she was an ally I mean. They're just constantly hammering away at people really Louis should fight back against that because that messaging is just disingenuous. It just is not. It's not true to what's happening. It's also I don't think a winning a message for them just given the optics of the governor who is known statewide and pretty well light statewide as opposed to the legislature. Who Most people don't know nobody knows who might shirk is his Outside of his district and even within his district a lot of people don't know who he is and as a result of it. Oh no I'm they're not going to necessarily gravitate is message right now. The rank rank and file voter is not feeling the pinch of of the budget on problems. they're smaller groups like the autism group and so forth are probably beginning to feel or will feel very tim. This reminds me of something that Ed Schultz once said. I I used to listen to this podcast all the time. It was a particular show there there was.

"You know the DNC recognize that the the way to victory for twenty twenty three two state parties and has follow follow up that belief with with funds so they've been sending money they sent bodies to us this summer we partner with them on a program called organizing core where we had forty. Torri college students work for us as paid influence over the summer where we train them and they did voter contact and all aspects of campaigning so that when they come back and twenty twenty they're ready to go and that's been a terrific partnership that we're proud of and then you're Stacey Abrams instead of this organization that's all about voter protection and making sure that everyone has access to develop and they've partnered with us to help us fund devoted protection plan and a program here in Michigan that were already up and running in relic out of something we heard from Stacey Abrams. We heard her from work. We heard it from Oliseh slot in his don't eliminate anybody as a possible vote talk to everyone which is really kind of different it is very different and I think part of that speaks to all of understanding that the electorate is changing and who who are voters are is changing and let me can't make the decision that we used to think we could make about who is a potential voter so we expand the electorate a little bit expand our base of voters that we can talk to you because our conversations. I think we can cross party lines sometimes because we're talking about issues that people care about that are near and dear to their hearts that are close to their wallets. The are not about the or the is one of the things I've heard from Jocelyn Benson. in the aftermath of the twenty eighteen election's that we've already had is the proposal proposal three is having a big impact is going to be a major emphasis on making sure that people understand they can vote from home. They don't have to go to the polls and they don't need a reason to vote for a home home. Absolutely our program this summer has been all about that we've been going door to door talking to voters about the new ways to vote absentee in Michigan and encouraging folks to get on their clerks absentee-voter permanent lists so that they can get that that ballot application every time and then we're going to help them walk through that process of filling out the applications and then getting the ballot and telling us about when that time comes we're we're really excited about this program but he's not tens of thousands of doors pocket thousands of voters and gotten thousands of people find out on the voter suppression is certainly been a part of the Republican game plan and a lot of states. It Probably Beats Stacey Abrams Jenner Campaign for Governor of Georgia. Is that that bigger problem in Michigan. We beat sporadically. Some some odd things happen around election day like flyers show show up on on car windows. Sometimes on college campuses sometimes in the city that save it wrong date of the election or little things like that voters are smart. We do a good job job. Educating our voters to combat against that sort of thing but there's there's a little bit of that and then occasionally we see some some attempts intimidation at the polls who he's Lisi. You know folks standing there. Asking questions of voters asking voters you know do you have all your warrants paid or your bills paid or do you have any warrants or those sorts of questions. I'm trying to intimidate okay so we've got a good team. Folks led led by our voter protection director Eric Perez men who are on the job and on the case and there to protect our voters from that credit information as much as possible one of the big factors in flipping the eighth congressional district getting a list of slatkin elected was voter turnout on the Michigan State University campus with proposal three and with the seems like growing activism among students. Is that a particular target for the party. That's one of one of our next big thing. The kids are coming back to campus. Now is to start rolling on our campus programs where we're helping folks registered of others. They're not registered in helping folks figure out absentee ballots where they need them. We're gone and I've practiced this year and then we're going to be really good at it for next year but it's about it. What's the one thing that the average democratic supporter can do other than obviously give the money to support the campaign. But where do you need help. I appreciate your give us money. you've got deaf the thing but you know shopping with them pub and walk with them go on the doors to make the phone call and have the conversations with voters not only about the issues and the candidates we care about about the importance of voting the difference that our vote makes. I think one of the things that we find is that a lot of people don't think their vote matters and we need to be having conversations all year round also all cycle long about the importance voting the difference you can make by showing up to vote one of the things we found in two thousand sixteen was the turnout in Wayne County was down specifically early in the city of Detroit is at another major target to make sure that doesn't happen again yeah. We've got staff in the city of Detroit working. Knocking doors making phone calls now on we will have a very strong voter turnout programs in Detroit led by detroiters so that we can make sure that we've got those turnout numbers up with highs. We can get them in twenty unfunny. had the opportunity on our podcast last week to talk with. Jennifer Granholm a little bit about what she thought about the Michigan race in one thing that she's very strong on is that really the the presidential candidate has to run a campaign in Michigan very similar to what was successful for Gretchen Whitmer. Yeah that's exactly right. That's what I'm telling. All of the presidential candidate of whatever number we're at right now of them is that they've got to set up shop here in Michigan. I'm encouraging them to do it now. They need to be in Michigan talking to the voters all through through the primary and then once we have a nominee that nominee has to set up a real campaign here in Michigan you know I I stay a lot to them. That Michigan is a better representation of the country than some of the early states and so coming here and talking these voters and learning about the issues that matter then will serve them better in the general election than spending a lot of hi and some of those early stage I'm hoping they're listening. They do need to get here and some of the feedback I've heard coming out of float is that people feel like they're being used as photo-ops rather than really having sincere support coming from the presidential candidates. Is that one of the things you've worn them out. I I've been very careful about any AH when they call and ask for advice about where to go been very careful with them about how how they how they interact with the people of Flint there's some great community organizers there and I encourage the go and have conversations with those folks but not to show up. Just do a town hall or take some photos because these these issues to deal with our very real and it's not about electing new. It's about making them whole. It's about fixing the problems in flint and if you're not willing to go in and have that conversation but just I wanNA stand near from bottled water don't bow another part of the national scene really slipping the Senate because if Mitch McConnell remains as Senate Majority leader nothing will get done regardless regardless who is elected president and with Gary Peters. You've got a special challenge. He's a very low visibility. Senator gets a lot done but very few people seem to know about it. He gets so much done and we're. We're doing our part here the party to make sure we're we're. We're we're telling as many people as possible about the record. Jerry Peters High and I know team. Peters is GonNa do the same. They're out there now. She's a terrific Usama that we're real proud of and he'll be fine in this election because of that because we've got a great story to tell about the senator and we're NFL it but but he is our main focus we have to make sure we return of the Peter's tax and it seems like you're having great fun village stories about his opponent Judge James. It is enjoyable. Yes it is he makes it easy. He says he says things cozy up to president trump in a way that makes it easy for us to to talk about the current polling shows the president trump is probably upside down by about ten points in Michigan. Are you anticipating that gap is going to narrow as we get closer to November twenty twenty. I'm getting ignore the coals and soon that that president trump is in good shape in Michigan and we're going to run a campaign that assumes that we're going to work hard for every vote. We're GONNA talk to the voters about the importance of turning ballot and replacing him with which is the Democrat. Get the nomination I'm not going to watch the polls. Go Up and down because that's what they do. I'm just GONNA stay focused on our plan. which is all about talking voters making sure they know the importance of getting turning out to burn shows having fun enjoying..

"Input would carry as much weight. I don't WANNA be ageism. They are butts. I really feel that it should be the adults in the room that handle this health crisis the other thing. I found really hilarious obvious to in one of the news accounts of the backlash on this an an industry spokesperson basically threaten to recall the governor over vaping which I thought was really a good good good for Google or other the Republicans. When it comes to public input they wouldn't be asking about the vape users might be bringing in or you know allowing adults who have used vaping to quit smoking to come in and testify how important that product was to them but the governor hasn't asked for a ban on vaping just on on these candy flavors that appeal to kids while the state budget and e cigarettes? Let's get most of the state headlines Right now. There's a quiet but massive drive by Enbridge to save their line five pipeline that runs at the bottom of the Straits of mackinac amy. There's there's been some new reporting this week. I just how far in which is going and how local governments especially in your area or responding quick Maga at the executive director from the watchdog group the Michigan Campaign Finance Network reports the Enbridge is playing a prominent role s a partner at the Michigan Association of Counties Annual Conference. That's through the organization adopted a pro line five amendment over the past year enbridge suspense up to sixty three thousand dollars for sponsorships and ads with Michigan Association Session of counties and amount equals five percent of the associations sponsorship revenues in bridges using argument that shutting down light five would cut northern Michigan. She goes off from the propane at provides. Get the Sierra Club and other firemen groups. Are they beg to differ. They say that's not the case in preaches leaning hard on Michigan lawmakers was to spending north of one hundred thousand dollars on lobbying just this year additionally they've been taking out ads in a lot of matron new newspapers across the state full page Ad Edsel. They're not inexpensive ads and then they've also been offering model legislation. I'm very similar to what Alec Does the American Legislative Exchange Council the type of legislation they offer but these are referendums for different counties and municipalities to pass referendums in support of building the tunnel in keeping line five in the meantime fascism in a box there you go okay time for or some quick. Political takes not that we can do anything quickly on his podcast loves. Try First Republican State Representative Larry Inman returned to the capital last week still facing being multiple federal charges of soliciting bribes. The House passed a resolution. That's basically toothless asking him to please go away amy. You're one of representative. Presentative inmates constituents. I know you're really pleased with that. How do y'all feel about your man lynching. I think we've got a BI partisan consensus in this area and one hundred four. That's Larry has to go because he's just not an effective representative of the people who's his his can't represents constituents if he's basically locked out and he can't even approaches coaches staff he's not allowed to talk to them but he's holding out and I'm sure the only reason he's holding out his his because his attorney told them to do so because if he didn't hold out. Senate could possibly make him look a little bit more guilty in front of a cherry. It's just it's a loss for the hundred fourth in the same lane. There's some movement on cleaning up state government by mandating financial disclosures by state officials and candidates Christine. What's the status. I think it's going to be widely supported in the house. These things usually are but it won't go anywhere in the Senate. Mike Shirke according to his spokesperson hasn't really looked at it but doesn't really like it. He hasn't sold on the idea via and the idea would be basically that public officials would have to do things like reveal. were their income comes from. Maybe released their tax returns something that right right now everything is secret. God forbid. We know how people who make the laws are influenced by the laws they make. We need to know if any of them own. Gulf resorts in Ireland or anything anything like that too. I suppose which interesting though is there's a little bit more pressure on the legislature this time because lurking in the background are a couple of groups that are talking about ballot what proposals to make this happen instead and you could be sure if there's a ballot proposal and it's going to be a lot tougher than uneven the legislature passes and I'd be willing to bet that it gets seventy to eighty percent of the vote of it actually gets to the ballot. I take that back to amy. We've got ten candidates in the presidential debates stage this week with new polling showing that Elizabeth Warren is building building your support but Biden Sanders seemed to be holding their own and over the weekend. We got another qualifier for the October debate. which the status of all this fun? Oh yes some of the polling is pretty interesting. Warren is surging in the numbers in the polls a CBS poll found her at the head of the pack in New Hampshire so that's pretty significant and in a bit of disturbing news one four Bernie supporters would turn to trump if they didn't secure the nomination for burning. That's something very disturbing about a space. I I think Tom Steyer has qualified for the debate. He will bring an interesting narrative because she's such a strong proponent for impeachment especially in light of this week's house judiciary sharing committees move to solidify impeachment proceedings so I think that people will you know sit up and listen to him a little bit and hear what he has to say. He's a strong speaker two yeah. I thought that the two Poles were really the probably the most important or the two smaller polls one or the Iowa Democratic presidential caucus and the other one for New Hampshire the first two punches in this battle and in Iowa Joe Biden still got a pretty good lead. He's up three points the field right now with with the he's Twenty Nine Sanders twenty-six Warren way back at seventeen but then you get over to New Hampshire which is the next door neighbor for both Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and you've got Sanders on top with twenty five Biden twenty-six worn with twenty-seven basically a three way tie and between the three of them. That's seventy eight percent head of the democratic vote. That doesn't leave a whole lot for anybody else. I don't think that's much of a surprise though is it. It's been months since they've been and just owning. The top three isn't it. It's been that way from the beginning ever since Joe Biden announced they've been one two three and there's been some back and forth for WHO's number two to between the two progressive candidates but it's been Joe Biden leading wire-to-wire so far one other poll is really interesting comes from Rasmussen which is a very republican polling operation and always has the best results for Republicans and even they find the trump's approval rating is upside down by seven points forty six the fifty three sort of Rasmussen can't make him come up with fifty percents. Nobody can I think he's just he just keeps narrowing that base down there are people who will stay with him no matter matter what but at some point you end up with a layer of people who just can't take things like sending the Air Force and all these people to his own his own resorts parts or defending this Alabama thing and Noah coming out and saying oh well we have to investigate to see if he interfered with a statement from on the National Weather Service. How can you stick with it. If you're saying and an update on something we discussed last month we talked about the efforts of conservatives to end the requirement limit that Michigan lawyers be member of the State Bar Association that would among other things mangle up. The lawyer disciplined system in the state. I mentioned back then that the bars political action committee but he is traditionally supported candidates from both parties based on their positions on issues like access to justice rather than their partisan views. I should've pointed out that the bar dissolve their pack aways aways back as the result of pressure from groups including the State Chamber of Commerce in fact that pressure started when I was working at the State Bar Twenty five years ago so that finally went away and then in the last couple of weeks a federal appeals court has upheld the dismissal of a similar case involving the North Dakota Bar Association. If you're interested in more on that we'll have a link to that ruling on our website and finally the ultimate burn for Donald Trump in the aftermath of sharpy gate. Mayor Pete footage offered the would be climatologist. Just a shoulder to cry on. I feel sorry for the president and debt is not the way we should feel about the most powerful figure in this country somebody on whose wisdom and judgment our lives literally depend. This is an unbelievably sad state of affairs for our country if our presidency is not in good shape than our country is not in good shape and on one level. It's laughable on another. It is exactly why we've got to do something different. This is humiliating. This is an embarrassing moment for our country and we seem to see a new national embarrassment every day. Donald trump you are fired. Ah You're just on fire because you burn Michigan Democrats were stunned stunned in two thousand sixteen when Donald Trump squeaked out a ten thousand vote victory here over Hillary Clinton and outcome that resulted in part from depress turnout and the reality that everyone took took a democratic victory for granted they took the lessons of two thousand sixteen as well as the successes of the two thousand eighteen midterm elections to Heart Michigan is a critical State for Democrats in two thousand twenty. The organizing is well underway to avoid a repeat of Twenty sixteens disaster leading the charge state Democratic Party Chair Lavoro Barnes. I talked with a recently Salihi about the game plan for Twenty Twenty Lavar. Every two years we hear about how the Democrats are going to do a better job getting the vote out and turning out for Michigan and then we ran into under twenty sixteen. What's GonNa be different about twenty twenty. The Big Difference for twenty twenty is that we started the work for twenty twenty Franklin twenty seventeen when we woke up in two thousand sixteen and realized what had happened to us. The first thing we did was start building an organizing plan that would make sure we didn't run into bat. The two thousand sixteen problem again caught flat-footed. We didn't have a field team in place to do the work we need to do. We were counting on a national campaign to come in and set one up and whenever GonNa do that again so we've got organized on the ground already they've been on the ground since twenty seventeen in resets our folks our local and county parties out there talking to voters constantly. We're we're we're not waiting for twenty twenty and with all the boundary do that work. We're doing it all the time out and you've got some resources coming nationally both in terms of the DNC and Stacey ca rooms. How is that interface working? It spends horrific.

GOP lawmakers take issue with governor's ban on flavored vaping products

"Another controversy arose from an unlikely corner of public policy also the last few days governor whitmer issued an emergency executive order curbing the marketing practices were particularly as it impacts minors but also Stopping Ping them from claiming that e cigarettes are healthier than regular cigarettes. This is a health crisis that we're confronting and it would never be permitted if it was cigarettes or letting these companies target our kids appeal to our kids and deceive our children and they're showing up with respiratory illnesses. No one can explain. This is why we're taking bold action here in Michigan. It's time for us to lead. I talked to my kids. I asked him about the he said so. Many kids in school are doing it and they're using all of these attractive candy flavors that are sold right next to candy and they're told that they're safe and they are not Christine. Whitman made national headlines. Michigan became the first State to take action against what appears should be a new and significant health risk for young Americans. What's the risk of wire Republicans up in arms about whatever's action. Yeah there are a couple of things that they don't like about how this came about and what this is. What it comes down to is there. Are these little adorable little tech gadgets that allow you to inhale L. What's called vape juice juice. There are as of this year over fifteen thousand different flavors and you can customize these flavors and create your own and you inhale kill them through these little pet gadgets which are they look like little. USB drives. They're small. They're cute kids. Love them some of them. You can sync with your phone. I I mean they're very customizable. Kids think they're very cool and this is from Yale Study. A couple of days ago more than three point six million middle and high school students currently use these devices a number of them are actually using these devices with nicotine in them and of that group while eighty one percent percent of the kids who started vaping started with these flavors so recently we've seen a number of respiratory illnesses come up on young people people and their unexplained but vaping is what they all have in common. It seems like every time I turn on the national news the evening there's another story about somebody who's in the hospital. Israel or even in the ground as a result of vaping yeah and all of these incidents are a little bit different and because there are so many different kinds of juice and bape devices. It's very difficult for health officials to nail down anything in particular but what they do now. Is that what you're inhaling a lot of kids when they get into these flavored vapes think they're inhaling just water vapor and that's not the case. It's an aerosol that includes many chemicals that it's just difficult difficult to nail down which in particular chemical or which particular combination is causing all of these illnesses last week they Michigan Department it meant for health and Human Services it should release saying they were investigating six cases of vaping associated respiratory illnesses same kinds of Ben Saint Pentonville Nisa been reported in twenty three other states and then and then on September fourth Dr Jonathan Karl Boone who is the chief medical executive and chief deputy director for health. She issued a finding that youth vaping constitutes a public health emergency and at that point the governor stepped in and ordered that that department to issue emergency rules awesome. That's how we got to the band of these flavored vaping products so what the Republicans don't like about this one. She did something on her own and you know Republicans. Don't want the governor acting without them now. In June she signed a couple of Senate bills. That clarified that selling vaping products to minors was illegal illegal but we didn't have a public health crisis in June so Republicans want to know why are we didn't get any public input in on this before she went and ahead in issued the order to ban these things but it's a public health crisis seen wait for public input on that. I find it really hilarious to these are that this is the same aim party. That has all too happy with Donald Trump saying. I don't care the Congress won't funded. I don't care that people don't want it. I'm building my Damn Wall and I'm doing it by declaring an emergency and initialing executive orders stealing money from the Pentagon so they can't build schools or daycare centers or repair military facilities of any kind they don't have a problem with that right but when it comes to vaping which is truly a crisis and something that's come up immediately. They're opening busy because they can't have an input on it before. The governor acts kind of ridiculous yeah the public input if the majority of the users of these vaping products which I'm not really familiar with if they are minors than I don't know that they're public.
