"So rod for breakfast at land decker for dinner. USDA approved. Welcome back to the Jim bohannon show at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 our guest is Elliott Ackerman, a marine veteran of 5 tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan a recipient of the silver star of the bronze star with V for valor and the Purple Heart. He is also an award winning essayist for such publications as esquire The New Yorker and The New York Times. The only fair and free election ever held in Vietnam was held in 1967 in South Vietnam. And the incumbent governor government won, although not decisively, there were a lot of others in the race and nobody got a majority of the vote. And the Viet Cong, of course, before they urged people just to boycott the election. The third thing you know, well, we're going to bring about all the goodness and equality and wonderfulness that communism brings, which of course is a croc. Under Ho Chi Minh, there's never been a free election in the Vietnam at all. In the meantime, in Afghanistan, one thing that I really wonder about Elliot Ackerman is not like the Taliban was anything new. They had run the country for quite a while. They had yanked the fingernails out of daughters and wives who dared to paint them. And this is what these people wanted that they refused to fight to defend against. I mean, I don't understand that at all. Well, I don't think if you look at the scenes from one year ago at Kabul international airport, it's pretty clear that this is not what a very significant number of Afghans wanted because there was this mass rush for the exits at the Taliban took power. But as is often the case in warfare, you have a tyranny of a minority over the majority. And Taliban rule in the 1990s was a ferocious yet small Taliban basically terrorizing a much broader Afghan population. And sadly, it seems as though Afghanistan is now regressed to a similar type of rule that we saw in the 1990s with the Taliban. So I don't think the Taliban can necessarily be construed as having massive popular support across Afghanistan, what they represent is an insurgency that the United States and NATO along with our Afghan partners were never able to completely extinguish and that insurgency was successful because at the end of the day the Taliban were effective at waiting us out and our result crumbled. Again, all I can say is that if before I would allow my wife or daughter to be brutalized by these pack of savages, I would fight like a Tiger to the death, and that's the part I didn't understand. Oh, well okay, the Taliban's back in power. I didn't get that. I mean, anyway, whatever. It's done and gone. Well, 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 Elliott Ackerman makes comparisons between Afghanistan and Ukraine, what would that comparison be? Well, I think it's important to hold these two events in conversation with one another. So in Afghanistan, last summer, we see the greatest military catastrophe that NATO has ever experienced since the creation of the alliance after the Second World War. It is important to keep that in mind because obviously Vladimir Putin is he's weighing whether or not to invade Ukraine is certainly watching NATO's performance in Afghanistan. And what do we see? We see massive NATO underperformance in Afghanistan. So when he's trying to determine what the response will be when he invades Ukraine, he certainly at least in Afghanistan sees a NATO alliance that can not hang together that has very little will to fight. And I'm sure was emboldened by that. What is sort of remarkable then is that within 6 months of probably the greatest capacity NATO has ever experienced, we see one of its brightest hours occur in Ukraine when Russia invades Ukraine in February of this year. And the alliance now after having completely underperformed in Afghanistan, now over performs. It sticks together despite Putin holding the energy supplies of Europe hostage. And is able to up to us up to this point, respond relatively effectively to Vladimir Putin. So again, it's important to hold these two events together because they certainly have a bearing on one another. Of course, the NATO reaction in Afghanistan was one of the oh, we're tired. We don't want to do this anymore. Whereas the NATO reaction in Europe was this brutal thug is right next door to all of us. I mean, the end result was that Finland and Sweden joined NATO in exactly the last thing that Putin wanted, despite his calendar reading 1938 instead of 2022, so and it's something that NATO learned my lord the Russians are vastly overrated because Putin wanted this thing over with in days. And it's been 6 months and it's not over. And if he can't handle Ukraine, he wouldn't have a chance against NATO. Well, I think that's certainly the case. And I think that when we talk about the cost of war, the cost in Ukraine for Russia has been has been massive in Russia fought the Soviet Union rather fought a 9 year war in Afghanistan and lost 15,000 troops killed. The war in Ukraine is 6 months old and certain estimates have Russian depth well in excess of 30,000 killed. So Ukraine has been a disaster for Russia. And there's an irony here because in many respects, one of the reasons that Putin invades Ukraine as you try to restore Russia to its Soviet borders to its to the borders that it had before the collapse of the Soviet Union. But what precipitated the collapse of the Soviet Union, one of the key contributing factors was a Soviet war in Afghanistan. So Russia is now invading a country like Ukraine, getting bogged down in order to expand its borders when in fact such actions are what brought it back brought about the contraction of its borders at the end of the Cold War when the Soviet Union collapsed.

We were always words. Yes, that's what I called them. Her shirt and a cartoon canaries that come around. But you got to admit they'll have an everybody else on the panel, including like Andrea Mitchell, who is 9000 years old. Laugh laughing at you. Laughing out loud at the whole thing. Let me tell people what we're talking about. David tweeted, the entire meet the press panel left out loud at Peggy noon today when she said the GOP quote should become the party that helps women after its abortion victory, and you said are the canary screaming Peggy? In your best doctor lecter. Yeah, it really is a laugh out loud. I mean, this is not the whole thing. I mean, Marco Rubio's got a plan that if you read it, first of all, it should never become law a because it's Marco Rubio's plan. And B, because it's just an excuse to rob the social security trust fund. Again, yeah. By the way, the other thing a lot of things out loud these days, aren't they? That they used to say, right? Clarence Thomas said the quiet part out loud Rick Scott said the quiet part out well, like, yeah, we're coming for all your rights and oh yeah, we're coming home. Absolutely. I mean, they're coming for the new deal. Yeah. Yeah. They're going to dig up FDR and throw them in a river somewhere. I swear to God. And speaking of petty moon or Sarah Huckabee Sanders that we just played, as you said, dear America, stop voting for dumb sincerely the rest of us. Are she totally unaware of right after you've all that you're saying, oh, we're going to make sure kids are safe and the womb is. I say for people in nursing homes. A lot of people are not safe in nursing homes. Yeah, I'll tell you, tell me about it. My mom's nursing home, COVID hotspot. She got COVID.

I just think we can't. You know, not just ring the alarm enough, but clarify enough. You said can folks, please stop referring to griswold decision as having been about contraception. Griswold confirmed the existence of a right to privacy within the constitution. That's everything. It's about marriage. It's about sex. It's about what we read. It's about how we communicate with each other. It's about the limits to search and seizure. It's about medical records, genetic information. It's about libraries and the Internet. Thank you. It's the underground. Yeah. I mean, I don't know. I mean, white people aren't looking at the long game now. After that happened last week is beyond me. Yeah. Yeah. You know, it's like I was thinking today. We have like this lawn, Wisconsin. They're going to activate this anti choice law from 1839 or whatever. What in the name of God was that still doing on the books? Yeah. By the way. Why didn't that get erased from the books in 1973? Charlie, you're making such good points, but can I just point out whatever colonel Steve Austin is doing to shank him is he is illegal already in many, many, many states. And he is a man whore because normally he's licks crystal boys armpits, but now he is licked virtually every part of Sean. Sean kamis, as you're speaking. Stevie no means no. That's definitely illegal in Wisconsin, whatever that is over there. As Sheila and Steve need me to leave the room for like apparently. It's worse than you and Jody. Thank you for slapping back it. What do I call him? Oh, senator football, McDonnell. Tommy tuberville said, I'm tired of the left wing media telling me in the hundreds of thousands of alabamians and millions of Americans that were dumb for standing up for the unborn. And you said, no, you're dumb because you're dumb. You're cruel because of all the other stuff. Yeah. Thank you. I mean, the idea that the idea that the odds are at least 50 50 that Herschel Walker is going to be joining this guy in the Senate. If they can get you to the polls, I think well. Yes. That's astonishing to me. Yeah, no me too. Me too. By the way, just when we talk about slippery slope and blah blah blah, you retweeted Evan Smith, who said Texas Republicans now discussing legislation to allow DAs to prosecute people involved in abortions in neighboring counties and criminally punish anyone who helps a woman get an abortion in another state. You just said, I've been saying this for a long time. Please study the enforcement of the resistance to the fugitive slave act of 1850 because that's where we're headed. Oh, yeah. That's where we are. I mean, if you're going to have these bands in the states, you've got to enforce them outside the states. Otherwise, they're ridiculous. Otherwise, you're wasting your time. If you're anti abortion in Texas, but you're okay with letting people go to, you know, well Jessica is probably New Mexico. Thank you. You know, to go to New Mexico, then your law is an ass. I mean, it doesn't make any sense. These people are far more serious about these laws. Than that. So yes, you're going to wind up having attorneys general up here in Massachusetts or in New York or in Illinois. You're going to wind up having them refuse to. Honor the warrants issued in Texas and Louisiana and Alabama and all these places. And now you're back if you did a display that. Charlie is a Catholic school graduate like me and Sean Kaminsky.

Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves Avoided Sex to Save Their Friendship
"Sandy Bullock admitted that she and Keanu Reeves never had sex because they both agreed they didn't want to ruin a friendship. And then I was always the kind of guy who didn't worry about the friendship and just went ahead and had sex and I would convince girls we're always going to be Friends. And you know what? I always stayed friendly. So it worked. I was right. But Sandra and Keanu met on the set of speed. It was 1994. My career was taken off and they had mutual friends. They had the same agent and they would get drinks together sometimes after Hollywood events. It was a wonderful time to be young and full of possibilities in Hollywood, but Sandra said in an esquire magazine article that even though they drank booze together it never led to sex. And she said, you know, Keanu is a guy who I feel like his friends with every woman he's ever dated, and I don't think there's anyone who has anything horrible to say about him. So maybe we could have survived, I don't know, but we didn't have to survive anything. We just get to grow up together on parallel roads and tip our hats and meet for dinner and try to work together. And the longer time goes on, the more in all I am of the human being, what I have been able to say that if I had dumped if he had dumped me and made me angry, probably not. I think she was missing the whole point that he would have been a great guy to be with.

Truman Capote’s Ultimate Betrayal of the Group of Female Friends He Called His 'Swans'
"Folks I'm talking to the author, Lawrence lemur, the author of capote's women, a fascinating book, detailing the extraordinary and strange relationships that this, I don't know what you call him. This man child, this genius, Truman Capote had with all of these wealthy society, women in the 50s and the 60s. I was asking you in 1976 when he finally allows esquire to publish something, maybe to keep the publisher at bay who paid him this big advance. That all of these women knew who they were portrayed in this excerpt and they all felt betrayed. Did any of them remain friends with him? Yeah, I mean, Lee Roswell stayed friends with him and CZ guest because he didn't send a negative about them in the excerpt. But his life sort of fell apart after this. It's like he cashed in his chips by publishing this thing. He groomed all of these women, groomed these relationships, and then suddenly decides to betray them. Do you think was he a deeply mean spirited person to do something like this? It seems cruel to me to have people who are confiding in you and then to betray them publicly in this way. He was an egomaniac. He was incredibly charming, but he lived an isolated life by himself in a real sense. He was friendless. So yes, he's God. So why not betray these women? There was Friends forever. And he didn't understand why they were so upset. And I think they were right to be upset. Some of his some of Truman's Friends, oh, they deserve it. They were just as rich worthless women. I don't feel that way at all. I think it was a terrible thing to do. He died in 1984. He was somebody that you could see at Studio 54. He always seemed to be making the scene, so to speak. He seemed to cultivate his public image, probably infinitely more than he cultivated an actual personal inner life. And it seems to have destroyed him. He was actually quite young when he died, wasn't he? His 59. Yeah, 59. Tell us some of the stories in this book. First of all, why would you write it with a title capote's women? In other words, why not simply write about Truman Capote and have the stories of these women be incidental to it? What made you want to focus on the women themselves? Because he wanted to write this masterpiece. This is going to be his master degree. So people would forget in cold blood or breakfast at Tiffany's. This is a book that would live forever. So as an author, I'm just fascinated by somebody that has that ambition. And what happens with it? And this is a guy with brilliant instincts in literary instincts. There is a he knew there was a great story to be told about these women. I mean, I tell it, I'm getting fabulous reviews. I don't tell it the way Truman would tell the feed been able to do it. But it's a fantastic story. There's no question

"And so one of the things that i've been doing is conversations so that people can come together realize they're not alone have these vulnerable conversations in a safe and supportive in compassionate environment where we can reach out and offer support. We asked for support. Really talk about what's going on our lives and not pretend like everything needs to be you know sunshine and flowers all the time you really touched on why this is very important topic like we obviously know. It's an important topic. But i think you're touching on a broader aspect of it which is that underneath it. All there is a need for connection. There is a need for a social community that you can really connect with on a deeper level. And i think that goes to creating a health that we're talking about with the wellness expire. So what do you think often gets in the way of people showing up in wanting to do this. What would be something that you think is a an impediment to that. Well i think a lot of it is. We have stigma attached to mental health for example and even physical health to the honest. We have stigma attached to men talking about their emotions. There's kind of a sense that if you speak up about something that you're struggling with that that's you know. Show you as being that. You're gonna love week that maybe you can't perform and that's my opinion. Just not necessarily the case. And so i think we have a lot of people who feel like they have to just put up a strong front end. Pretend like everything's fine and pretend that they're not struggling in this latest and that they're not human were so concerned about making sure that we climb the ladder and but we fit into this box and so we often just find ourselves pretending that were more okay than we are so that we can be accepted.

"Okay if you are in negotiation and somebody says it is the principal just know your life got a lot harder because if somebody is negotiating based on their own principal here. They're saying principal when they are saying emotionality throwing that out there. And so what i wanna do is i want to make clear to the other side. The distinction between agent and principal and so as a lawyer. The code of professional responsibility precludes me from talking to the client. I cannot ethically talk to the client. And so i need to to the client through the lawyer in a really specific type of way so i think really when it comes down to it you just need to be mine for about the tensions and mindful about the different interests for the parties at the table because everybody has different interests. And if you understand that you can adjust your strategy accordingly awesome. I'm trying to process so many interesting things in here that i want some. I want some even more tactical tips around when there's a little bit of tension. Let's be real a lot of negotiations right up in the front of this episode in the beginning were talking about the concept of negotiating with people who are near and dear to your heart and it doesn't necessarily be like that poorly brandit the brand of negotiation. But when you come back to. I guess this more typical brandon negotiation. Where some things are sometimes going to get a bit hostile with all of those that tension floating around there. What are some things we can do to move through it to move past it to work through the tension and hostility and get everybody to a place where they need to be for an effective result.

"Would you say. Kwami is the one single most important thing that we need to know to become a better negotiator. Basically sum up your entire world in one sentence. Here i guess is what we're asking easy easy you're always negotiating that's really it. And so the name for my podcast negotiate. Anything for the reason that i want. People to recognize that they're constantly negotiating. So the definition. I like to use for negotiation. Is anytime you're in a conversation and somebody wants something and so constantly negotiating so whenever. I am doing these trainings and i ask them. When they're negotiating they always start off with family. I then friends and then people at work. And then even if it's procurement people are negotiating deals or real estate folks. Then it gets those type of external negotiations and so the people were going to negotiate with the most are the people who are closest to us and so the number one thing that people need to recognize when it comes to negotiation is that negotiation is everywhere. That's one of the biggest barriers people have is that they have low negotiation awareness. They don't know when they're negotiating and if you don't know you're negotiating then you don't know to use the skills. I love that. Because i know so many people that we talked to in. They're like well. How do i practice my negotiation. I don't get into enough situations like contractors or with business partners or with vendors. That i feel like i can practice enough and i think you just said it perfectly there. You should be practicing every day whether you're talking to your kids whether you are at a restaurant and trying to order something that might not be on the menu anytime you're talking to somebody in either side. What something. It's a great way to put that you're always negotiating to. There's always the opportunity to practice. You have to put yourself in the mindset that is negotiation absolutely and i remember i was listening to one of your episodes before i think it was on the ship. Bigger pockets episode and carol. One of the things you mentioned. Was that the simplest thing you can do to practice you. Negotiate digest practice listening. Not talking in a conversation and it's really hard to do and it's so hard that i created a challenge just for myself maybe i'll make it public something like that. But it's just the listening challenge and i remember. I have a five year old and around the holidays. My son was acting up a bit in school. And so i said you know what i'm to take him to work with me and i will bore him to death and then he will appreciate school more. My mom thought it was a horrible idea and says she started off the conversation. Just criticizing me. And i said oh. This is an opportunity to practice. Okay so for fifteen minutes straight fifteen minutes straight. i didn't say anything other than summarizing. What she said asking. If i understood correctly and then asking what else fifteen minutes straight didn't say anything and i was dying inside. I want to make it abundantly clear. So it's not easy not easy at all to do and so we got to that fifteen minute point and she's like. Are you going to say anything. I said listen. Mom i just wanna listen. I am here to just hear your perspective. What else do you want to say. And then once. I got to the point where she said nope that's it. I said okay. Would you like to hear my perspective. Sure and then. I gave my perspective. She agreed right now. If you think about that conversation if i would have started off if if i would have started off that conversation would not have gone very well right but i went through that painful process of listening for the moment because it was effective in the moment but also thinking long term. This is a practice opportunity. If i can do it in this moment it'll be a lot easier in the future. And then at the end of the conversation. I asked her for feedback. I said how did you feel during this conversation. What could i have done differently. What could've done better. I'm seriously thinking about every single conversation whether it's with my five year old my wife and my mom whoever it is as a practice opportunity because it makes those bigger than more transactional negotiations a lot easier. I want to suggest that. Everybody just hit rewind ninety seconds or one hundred twenty seconds and listen to that again because if you learn nothing else from this episode that's going to change your negotiation ability right there. That's gonna take ten times better. I heard a quote the other day. And unfortunately i can't remember who said it and so who attributed to but something along the lines of most of us when we are listening to somebody else auk were thinking most of the time about what we're going to say next as opposed to what they are saying and when we do that. We don't really get the other person's viewpoint we don't really comprehend what they're saying. We're just thinking about how we're going to argue it and how we're gonna get our point across and so what you said was so important. I do wanna go back to one thing because you had an amazing nugget in there that you kind of glossed over. But i think is super important. I'd love for you to expand on it if you don't mind but you talked about during that fifteen minute conversation with your mom. You were reiterating back to her. Your interpretation of what she was saying and it wasn't just is a time filler. Wasn't just for you to have something to say. What was your reason for. Taking the time and reiterating back to her. What you thought she was saying. It's called the empathy loop and so what you do. Is you summarize what the person says and you do by saying this. it's a really simple format. Correct me if i'm wrong but it sounds like you're saying x. y. z. Is that correct. And then you give them the opportunity to correct you and so this serves two purposes number one. It shows that you're listening and number two. It gets you points for listening. I think about it in terms of a game right where the other side is the referee. It doesn't matter if you're listening if they don't believe that you are in fact listening right and so what i do there is. I say yeah. Am i right there. And then they could either say yes or no and the added psychological bonuses. This people feel like they are in control when they have the opportunity to correct you. Think about it as a child and a parent who's correcting in school teacher versus student. Who's correcting who right. And so i'm saying you correctly. I'm giving you the power in this. Interaction makes them feel safer. Makes them trust you more and makes them feel more in control. Even though i'm not really conceding anything by doing that.

It was long listed for the Orange Prize. As was her debut novel. Prep her other books. Include the man of my dreams sustained eligible and the acclaimed short story collection. You think it I'll say it. Her stories of appeared in the New Yorker Esquire Oprah magazine and The New York Times magazine her latest collection of stories to be published in the UK is help yourself. She's also the guest editor for the Twenty Twenty Best American short stories anthology. She lives with her family in the American Midwest. A brand new novel is rotten. And it's been described as bombshell while I couldn't agree more. This is a book that will demand. Attention Curtis Sitton fell. Welcome to meet the rices. Thank you for having me. You'll novel begins in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine. Is Hillary Rodham Graduates College? And it brings us right up-to-date in Contemporary America. But I'd like to go back to Cincinnati in one thousand nine hundred seventy five when when you were can you tell us about the second stance surrounding you alive? Oh my goodness it's funny. I'm so much in the habit of of talking about Hillary's lay right now. You'll warm familiar with that than with my own will. I'm the second of four children. I have a sister. Who's less than two years older than I am. And I would say a have not led a very personally dramatic life which might be why I'm a fiction writer instead of a memoir rest but yeah I grew up in Cincinnati. My parents are both retired but still live in Cincinnati and I have two sisters one brother my brother is actually holds elected office in Cincinnati. He's the he's a member of the city council in his third term. So so I guess. Different members of my family are interested in in politics in in different ways but I was very lucky to go to excellent schools in Cincinnati elsewhere. And I would say my family Sort of obsessive readers like we didn't it's not like we. All six sat around each of US feverishly reading a book of our own but there were lots of books in the House. We did sometimes read is a family. My mother was a librarian for a long time for you know middle school or junior high students so ages twelve and thirteen and fourteen and that strong feminist streak. That comes to your writing that being influenced by her. That's an interesting question. My parents have almost opposite personalities. From each other where. My father is very great Gary in very opinionated and my mother is you know I think she has strong opinions and viewpoints. But she's. She's not a very assertive per cent. And she's not she's not she's a very private person even even by saying this should not be. I think she'd rather that like I never talk about her. Other than you know maybe acknowledging that she exists described as relatively progressive. But you know I think there are some families where the children grow up going to protest rallies in that was not my family You'll schooling was obviously a hugely influential. In fact your first book prep which is I. Think long list for the Orange Prize loosely based on that. Would you say so? I went to a boarding school in Massachusetts. When I was I had just turned fourteen and it was sort of strange given you know the area of the country where I grew up. Which is the mid west and it was a little bit unusual to go to a sort of fancier elite boarding school on the east coast just in the sense that a lot of students who go to that school are more from that region and also the other thing is that. I was the only one of my siblings who went which I think sometimes makes people think that I must have been the most academically talented in fact. I was the least academically and by my siblings. Were all you know much more. Well rounded students like. I did well in English but I definitely struggled with other subjects so those a little bit. I feel like I certainly. It was privileged but it was also a little bit random or arbitrary that I went to boarding school and talking about coming from a different at least geographical background from the rest of the students. The story is sort of more than coming of age. It's it's more perhaps one could say it was about a study of of social class. Was that something that you found was very apparent there that it did feel different. This whole kind of I mean I think the thing that we all have this horror of being a teenager comes across in dairy well a particular field and that you didn't fit in that. I think I felt at times that I didn't fit in. Certainly I mean I would say that. It wasn't the main character in prep. Leave your experiences going to boarding school as more of a sort of class shock than I would say I did. And you know class is sort of the air. We all breathe. It's maybe especially obvious. Una Boarding School campus. But you know I think it's it's obvious everywhere you know. You can have a sort of exchange with a person like delivering a package to your house and the two of you could probably like assess each other's voices are accents and no things about each other's class or like defied that one of you is in a house receiving a package one of US delivering. The package also says things about class in our society. You know doesn't necessarily say very good things but I think the To like one yet like I was aware of class. And I don't think I was quite as much of a fish out of water as my protagonist. Although certainly I'm like erotic person was even more neurotic as a teenage you write about teenagehood again in in your next book. And I think we'll come back to that because it will say impacts on on the subject matter of Rodham but you went off to Stanford then and you studied creative writing night. You wrote the College newspaper. You registered magazine. What's being a writer? Always the the obvious career choice. Well I think writing was always really important to me and it was like from a very young age for about six or seven. I spent a lot of time reading and writing because I wanted to. I think it helped me make sense of the world and it held my attention and there weren't as many options on net. Netflix back. Then so entertain yourself a little more so definitely writing always played a huge role in my life. I don't think I grew up with the expectation that I would be a full time novelist. I think sometimes I thought I won't be a lawyer or as I got older. I thought you know maybe a social worker or an English teacher or something. I always the closer my adulthood. I think the more it seems like I would do something writing adjacent. But I just don't think anyone can count on being a fulltime writer as you know how they pay their mortgage and I mean going to someone as you did to study at the Iowa. Writer's workshop is no guarantee of coming out. The other end is a fully-fledged writer. But that does give you a better chance than most doesn't it's a huge success rate. It's a it's a wonderful program and I like I loved being there. I learned a ton but the the thing that people don't necessarily realize is not only. Can you go to an excellent writing program the Iraqis and after that you know not have a stable writing career you can be a writer who has had multiple books published in that. Still not the way. You're supporting yourself. And in fact new writing is my full time job. But that's that's an incredible privilege and it's not. It's not something I take for granted. It's very I know that it's very unusual on special. I feel
Author 'Rodham' imagines a different `Hillary'
"A young Hillary Rodham madly in love with the man she met at Yale Law School abandons her own path and heads to Arkansas slowly she starts to uncover bill Clinton's many infidelities and makes a choice what would have happened if Hillary Rodham had never married Bill Clinton a new novel by Curtis Sittenfeld imagines it just that and she joins me now to talk about it hello hello your book starts out in a familiar way but then your book takes a very different attacks from the historical timeline what what happens so in real life Bill Clinton proposed to Hillary Rodham twice and she said no both times and then he proposed a third time and she said yes and in my version she says no the third time two and she goes her own way then she initially becomes a law professor and Chicago at northwestern and then she kind of goes on from there and the book follows her over the next forty years I want to ask you before we go much further in this you know so much has been said about Hillary Clinton why did you want to write speculative fiction about her doesn't everyone is in a totally natural impulse and possibly so actually it's funny because I agree with you that so much has been written about Hillary and it was sort of in reaction to that that I think I wrote this book so in the lead up to the two thousand sixteen election I was invited to write essays about Hillary and I would decline because I felt like every possible thing there was to say about Hillary had been said she had been analyzed from every angle and then an editor at esquire magazine invited me to write a short story from Hillary's perspective and I accepted and writing that story was this kind of strange exercise where I realize that the question was not what to the American people think of Hillary Clinton but what does Hillary Clinton think of the American people and it turned out that that I had four hundred pages worth of thought to say on that so it was actually trying to sort of slipped the narrative and and instead of making her the one who's scrutinize lake giving her voice which of course is totally fictionalized voice likes she did not write this book I wrote this book and so she says no to Bill Clinton she becomes as you mention a law professor she then becomes a politician was it inevitable that she'd become a politician how did you come up with this path for her I think that in real life if she had not married Bill Clinton I'm not sure she would have led the life that I created for her in the novel and I think with a novel like this you know that the reader is bringing some opinions or expectations and I as the writer I'm kind of toying with those expectations and sometimes for filling them and sometimes defying them and I felt like it was the most interesting version and to have her enter politics but you know have no pulp click association with Bill Clinton yes except to quite a few meetings along the way I want to ask you about writing Bill Clinton the character because like the real life Bill Clinton your fictionalized bill also has a swirl of sexual misconduct allegations around him and he's also accused of sexual assault so one of the reasons that I love fiction is that I feel like getting knowledge is that people are very complex and that the same person can have very appealing qualities and very troubling qualities and I think that the plan is like the embodiment of that where I would never pretend that I can't understand his his appeal I would never you know sort of say that I can look at him with admiration and you know without feeling any sense of sort of discomfort and so and I think that a novel allows for knowledge in that like this is in an essay that's trying to either celebrate him or take him down they're both the very intertwined in our consciousness are you trying to suggest that we might consider them differently if we had to think of them as individuals yes so actually I think that one of the reasons I wrote this book is that around the time even after the two thousand and sixteen election I had this realization that school children who knew Hillary was running for president often literally didn't know that Bill Clinton existed and that kind of blew my mind where I thought you know what is what if adults saw Hillary as completely separate from dell the way that kids do and you think that that would change fundamentally the way that she's you yes I do I think I mean I'm not I'm not saying that it would sort of solve all the problems of sexism but I think it would make her have an identity much more like that of Elizabeth Warren or any clothes are I wonder if it isn't insulting to suggest that a man held Hillary Clinton back maybe this story and their story is one of a hugely successful partnership that is arguably one of the most successful in American political history it's totally possible that you're right like I'm not even sure it's either or I think it may be though Clinton held her back in some ways and probably helped her and others and the same for I think maybe she held him back in some ways or maybe didn't always do things that were in is personal or professional best interest and then in other ways she was hugely helpful like I don't I don't think it's an either or it's sort of situation for for either of them did your opinion of either bill or Hillary Clinton change after giving them the fictional treatment you know being intimately involved in sort of creating this alternate narrative for them so I was already an admirer of Hilary before I began working on the book if anything I definitely have more admiration for her in terms of toughness her perseverance her hard work there's also there's all these stories I think they are sort of in the public but they don't get that much attention about what a loyal thoughtful friend she is like often over many decades or you know like she's she's very funny which is not really part of her public image so I am fully pro
Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus
"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the government on lease and get it out of the way so that we can go back to work and and restore

Mel Magazine co-founder Josh Schollmeyer on how the site's 'never been there to push razors'
"The idea overall behind behind mel. Whether you're a couple things one I always joke that it. It's me we're really working through some shit which is kind of trutv just trying to find my place in a very as you point out fraught world. I think when it started the idea was much more quaint Which was had come from playboy where we did? We did a lot of things on. You know bespoke axes that you could hang in your living room and a lot of consumer the endless conversation. Some of my fellow colleagues would have about Artisanal Gin and it just seemed Frankly it kind of bored me and it felt pretty out of touch and I think you know I come from a very blue collar working class background and I think there was a time with my grandfather and even my dad and uncles. Who looked at that stuff is very aspirational? And I think as time went on aspirations really changed and became more experiential than they did around certain goods also felt that that approach shamed people. You know if you didn't have the right kind of socks that matched your jacket with the right kind of barber. Somehow you were less of a you know well-heeled sophisticated urbanites and so I wanted to do something that I felt would speak much more. Fundamentally to men's lives especially not just with what was going on with social change but the fact that like the whole notion of quote. Unquote adulting and you know. When do we start to grow up and mature and you know as men in particular are faced with a lot of more fundamental things in life things? You never thought you'd worry about around your job your especially given the economic times we've been in the last decade or so. I think mental health is a super important thing I didn't see places like men's health and others really taking mental health as seriously as physical health especially around like sixty seconds to ads. I was much more interested in trying to holistically. Triangulate my need for like my ambition for career my ambition to be a good partner and father and my ambition to be something other than the guy who died at his desk. Or you know a husband or father and somebody who had his own identity and I think that that's a very tough thing to square kind of in any year. I think it's particularly tough now and I just wanted to sort of investigate the thinking the different people that I thought were doing that. An intriguing ways that maybe you could take something from okay so I mean I think everything changed with me too right. Yeah Yeah I WANNA I WANNA get to that but so that was the original idea. And I think what? You're talking about with with esquire and Chiku and a lot of the sort of traditional men's publications I mean a lot of that's business model driven right right. I mean like it's an archetype based on who they could advertise against right so I actually believe that guy never really existed. It was just that they could get style advertises. They could get auto advertisers. They could get liquor advertisers they could get studios so like. I never believed that guy existed. I believe that that guy existed to sell against right so different business model at Mel. I mean so you hooked up with with Dollar Shave Club with Michael Dubin Explain explain the model there because they think I know originally I was like. Oh Wow weird this is gonNA BE. I remember you know our digital alum John.

Yeah I mean we talk about a few issues in your job in general but in our travel issue that came on May so you you shot almost the entire feature will yeah does may two thousand nineteen you were in Beirut with Andy Burgundy tracked and then you I'm just flip through the pages then you were in Taipei with Suli and also burgundy and Andy any wanted to tag on everything so that was a big photo portfolio of yours your shot in Allison Rome in spring break menu story that was just in New York yeah that was here in the building the buildings that was as basic recipe story and then you shot photos for our red sauce America package which brought you. Where did you go for this one? Oh man that was a lot. I think that was six cities L. A. L. A. Philly New Orleans. Oh my God. Where did I go? I mean you literally can't remember yeah I it was like four to five cities. I guess my first question is I think a lot of fans of yours. WanNa know like how do you end up as a staff dog for at a food magazine like whenever someone asked me about this is I'm the worst possible personnel asked because it's purely luck and circumstance stance and my only goal and still the only like hey just don't get fired and spend closing up on your six and I still get asked to come back every day and there were definitely moments early on we're Alex pollick grocer artificial photo department critic Blake. I'M GONNA kill Lau a huge mistake so you start off as an intern turn years ago yeah. That's my freshman year of college. I just wanted to do something with my life and not just go home for the summer to California and you know Oh bummer and my parents house so I wanted to find an internship and I've always had a fascination with the magazine world apply too much internships. Nobody got got back to me in like a week. Before summer started. I saw a posting for esquire magazine to be a fashion closet intern. Oh and I was like that sounds cool. That sounds way out of my reach. I am hugely under qualified for that but I'M GONNA shoot my shot and Michael Steph. who was the fashion assistant at the time got back to me? He's like when can you come in based on what oh it. Did you have background. It was the most underqualified letter ever. It was basically hey. Here's my resume. I was a lifeguard in high school. I was a high school tutor and I intern at the State House in Massachusetts in politics nothing related to magazines but I really love menswear and here's like my favorite menswear blogs and here's my favorite brands brand's. I like fashion. I can work hard and he got back to me. Can I just say that. I am a lot of times when I talked to young people who are just out of college in their writing you you know letters to inquire about a job and they read like they're written by a law firm. I'm always like learning be yourself. Be passionate sort of expose yourself so to speak but that's what's GonNa grab some somebody's attention one hundred. I think the way I showed her. The letter wasn't like the formerly hi my name's dogs home. Hey My name's Alex. I'm really excited about this. I know him not meant for this Gig but I will do whatever it takes gap and so forth and they took a chance on me and that kind of was my segue into the New York City magazine publishing world and it turns out having square on your resume. Just opens opens up a lot of doors but it was great. It was just my eighteen years old. I didn't get paid but I got to see how magazines work I've got to be on fashion shoots Justin Timberlake Lake and Ryan Gosling and wow poll like hold fourteen thousand dollar jackets and look it Nick Sullivan whose whose the editor in chief at the time Grainger David David David grange just like talk shop and like this is amazing. This is legendary and that made me really WANNA stick with it yeah very recall okay so internship at esquire. How then does that lead you to be a so after that? I was convinced that I wanted to stay in publishing. Look fashion. menswear ended up at Nylon guys Juku for a little bit complex four pins so I was very very much in that circuit as an intern just doing minimal intern work but after a couple of years I was just like this is not really what's my angle here. I don't WANNA be stylus. I don't WanNa be a fashion writer. The idea of being a photographer and fashion was just you know. I didn't even sit down. That's not going to happen so after this is my third yes approaching my third year of college. I A Internet a bunch of or apply uh-huh bunch of other internships again. Nobody got back to me. Despite actually this I'm being off and having a lot of magazines in Monroe oster I applied to like yeah a a couple of mags won't be noted but they're they're. They're okay. They just get back. I mean I saw a posting for bone apetite photo internship and I was like I know nothing nothing about food. I like pictures. I took photo classes in high school and college. So how active a photographer were you at this point. It's like I'm not active. I don't know I took a lot of fissures in high school. I had my own flicker account. I you were you were you were definitely interested. We're sitting at least and I took pictures of the school paper and stuff like that. I I was a you know an avid hobbyist as major so do you did you come in an interview like what God you the job ultimately so I went in again. It's always like a last minute. Call in showed up from Boston and I met with Jake. Ramoser are former photo assistant and he he gave me a talk. Hey so turn yeah. It looks like you've worked a lot of magazines. you have zero photo experience and you have zero food experience so you're pretty underqualified but honestly the only person here that's interviewed. That's worked at large publications so we're GonNa go with you. So that was basically it was it was Bazeley. Hey you're you've worked at reputable places so we'll hire yeah. I do think that's interesting interesting career wise like over the years. I've worked at James Beard Foundation in Time Out New York and the food's severe than G. Q. Got more fashion thing that came back to food. I was a sports writer in college like it is you can move around and I think one thing that editors employers look for is that you do have experience in in a particular field and that you know how to get stuff done that you know under you understand what the industry requires but within that sort of industry you can shoot food. You can shoot you know people. You can do all these things. You don't have to be in one lane. One hundred percent I think at the time I was taking some classes and I was also I was studying NPR print journalism at the time and I remember talking about that with Jake and he was like Oh. This is a plus because you kind of understand writing thing and photography on some level so we'll run with this so he didn't internship summer internship a year or so later. We ended up hiring you as a foot assistant no so I did this summer internship and I was like this is way better than working fashion. Everyone's so much nicer yeah yeah. It was a great time and I was like in order for me to WANNA stay in this world I can see I need to shift from fashion to food media so then I went back to Boston awesome for my senior year and as as I left Alex pollock the photodetectors times like hey we love your great. Just reach out when you're when you're graduating we can like. Maybe you keep you keep you happy. Come back so I would always send emails and I say hey just graduated like three months three or four months. I would love to come talk about a photo editor assistant role. Did you in the interim year. Were you working on shooting things. Decrease your portfolio to share with Alex to say hey I just want. I've been shooting a lot. Take a look at my stuff. Yes so thankfully because of my time I she went over to Boston magazine for my senior of college and I ended up being digital intern which basically means I was just doing every anything and everything for the website correct the king yeah yeah I remember being so proud and like twenty years old on my I've got years of intern experience. I haven't been paid for any of them but you we know I've seen some stuff like that really was my my pride enjoy worked a lot of places and they harden managed digital intern and they also gave me bill do photo take pictures and do have my own bylines socially once a lot of times when you get your foot in the door somewhere are the the brand or the magazine wherever they need people to do stuff go. You can go okay but we'll trust you. There's something trustworthy about you. Then people are all right. Go give this a shot. You'd have a DVD will keep doing it. I must really thankful that it was a web internship versus print because obviously no one's GonNa give any Interna print byline whereas it's much lower risk to teachers hey make something for lab and if it's really good we'll Polish and if not we won't publish in no one will ever or care about low budget so it was just gave me a lot more freedom and they knew that I worked at the food magazine before okay so you know how to take pictures of food. You were photo intern turn. I'm like yeah I guess I mean I. I saw Marcus Nelson. Do you like an overhead shot of something by a window so I can do that. How hard can it be yeah so I mean I I? I did it and they would. It was really cool. I mean they sent me there. Okay so we'll just have you do restaurants so they would send me like once a week in shoot for four restaurants a week and just shoot it for their website so who was giving you guidance about photos style at that point what kind of shots they wanted from the restaurants. It's nobody else really. They just assumed you knew what you were doing. The funny thing is I applied to Boston magazine to be a photo inter. I WANNA continue that path that track of being working for requirements it's but they they didn't want but then the digital department got back to me. I didn't really have communication with the magazine so it was just kind of me and our digital editor who just send me. I was like Oh this. Let's get this close enough to bone advocate and some overhead shots off light and like keep doing this and I would just bike around Boston Jason and go to a bunch of restaurants that are digital restaurant editor Chris Hughes covered and yeah it was it was really good training. It's really good training. I looking back it was really great just being able to go in and practice and shoot restaurants for relatively low risk and have that be an internship set eh great base so then I shot all these restaurants and as shooting what's in all this stuff to Alex pollick. I'm like hey portfolio.

the founder of eight chan cold for the site to be taken down some of the language in the manifesto echoed remarks by president trump including his use of the word invasion to describe immigrants crossing the southern border on Sunday president trump briefly spoke about the shootings in el Paso in Dayton but did not refer to guns domestic terrorism or white nationalism more supremacy in his remarks president trump is scheduled to address the nation today at ten AM on the presidential campaign trail a number of democratic candidates link the shooting in el Paso to trump's anti immigrant rhetoric former congressman Beto o'rourke who is from el Paso accuse trump of stoking races south bend mayor people to judge said trump is not helping to stop what he described as a quote lethal violent white nationalist terrorism meanwhile senator Bernie Sanders called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to hold a special session of the Senate to pass a gun safety belt they'll Paso attack came just days after a white male shooter attacked the Gilroy garlic festival in northern California killing three people the gunmen in Gilroy promoted an anti immigrant manifesto online just hours before the shooting according to The New York Times white extremists shooters have killed at least sixty three people in the United States over the past eighteen months we go now to el Paso

advocacy group based now passed away welcome you both to democracy now first of all condolences on the Harvard that is taking place in your community and I'll pass so we want to begin with SSR Blanco on if you could talk about what your tell us about your community in el Paso and then tell us what you're demanding right now well thank you Amy are a boss who is a warm welcome mean bi national community located on the US Mexico border our sister city to the south of us in Mexico twice we are a community that is very tight knit we are a community that opens its arms to immigrants and welcomes immigrants this community is a community of immigrants my father was an immigrant from the state if you are one in Mexico and this is tragic and it's it's horrible that were seen these type of acts of violence and murder tied to white supremacy occurring here in our in our communities Hey we need to see action we need the words of the president have been harmful and a it's a it's unfortunate that this president has not condemned this white national of violent acts here in our communities and other communities across the country and work it's horrible that the United States Senate has not taken any action in terms of gun reform to not allow these type of weapons to reach the hands of these individuals who wants to create havoc and fear in our communities cry for us what you understand took place on Saturday morning at that Walmart well early about ten to ten thirty there were calls nine one one calls to police a good man began firing in the parking lot of Walmart a here in el Paso and he entered the though the store began shooting and firing at individuals this community is majority Latino he drove a in six hundred miles to perform these acts of violence against our community we have seen in his manifesto the level of hate toward our community in toward immigrants in this country and clearly looks like it was an intentional act throughout the day families of had been waiting to hear news so they set up a family reunification center in the elementary school that I attended as a kid to allow families to wait here is the good news the bad news unfortunately for many the bad news is that their family members were killed by this individual Fernando Garcia at founding director of the border network for human rights on can you talk about the report said some survivors were afraid to get help maybe they were injured but afraid because of their status right now their immigration status yes Amy are present wild let the last actually two days we had received several calls from families that where a freight of actually going into the hospitals and clinics because they they soulful mainly border patrol personnel and vehicles in they were actually not report the in the in your face and they were actually going to the hospitals and clinics on their own so they call us and what we need is we will eventually we called our congresswoman esquire because we wanted the border patrol in nice actually eastern a statement that they would not enforce immigration laws these days in el Paso and I think people as they are for it's still a friend of that because he didn't before this the shooting happened people were afraid already off immigration enforcement so I think a little a little people is getting away with more comfortable obviously but is gonna take a little bit more than that in the spring we are you still receiving calls of people being afraid of reporting their injuries stool that hospitals and that though it is because so far the few that we have with the immigration do you believe that Latinos were targeted I mean clearly in this so called manifesto I mean right before the gunmen opened fire at the Walmart in el Paso he then posted this anti immigrant screed apparently attributed to him appeared online the manifesto is titled the inconvenient truth about me it reads in part quote I support the Christ Church shooter and his manifesto this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas they are the instigators not may I am simply defending my country from cultural ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion Hispanics will take control of the local and state government of my beloved Texas changing policy to better suit their needs they will turn Texas into an instrument of a political cool which will hasten the destruction of our country the manifesto read it also cites the great replacement theory the white nationalist right wing conspiracy theory which was also invoked during the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in Virginia in two thousand seventeen when the neo **** chanting tools will not replace us the author of the
Bernie Sanders joins growing Democratic field of 2020 candidates
"Let us finally moved today back to the US where vets. Trinh Senator Bernie Sanders has officially announced his second US presidential bid the seventy seven year olds. Vermont Senator became a political star back in two thousand sixteen when he narrowly lost a Hillary Clinton for the democratic nomination. He declared to his supporters. It was time to complete the quote political revolution. He started with many candidates in the field could Sanders stand out as he did back in two thousand sixteen or will it further splinter the Democrats who will need a United front to unseat Trump. Good move for Sanders or good move bad move for the Democrats. The last time I was on a said this, and I'll say it again for the next eight months, the most important thing, the Democrats should be doing is devoting all their energy to removing the clear and present danger. That's in the White House. The democrat who leads that. And is an if they're successful at it will be the nominee for president all of these people coming out of the woodwork. Now, they do it primarily because they're encouraged by their media advisers to do it because they're going to get money to get media. The media loves it because it gives them a horse race every day on days when there's really no news happening in Washington because it's grid-locked. So that's one part of the argument. The second thing to say is that currently leading the field by the most recent polling, Joe Biden, former vice president and Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden will be passed seventy five in twenty twenty Bernie will be seventy nine and I'm I'm going to make a bold prediction that neither man will be the nominee of the democratic morning. It's I mean, they may do well at the in the early stages because of name recognition, but it's not going to happen. The thing that Bernie Sanders did and which makes him a really important figure in American politics last five years is that he in challenging Hillary Clinton from what we would call the left. He completely redefined what was politically possible in America. And you know, it is no surprise that. The most well known new politician, America Alexandria. Oh, Cossio Cortez is actually approaches. Shea of Bernie her she got elected in New York City, basically running on his platform all over the country, young younger candidates, and particularly younger women have been braced this idea of democratic socialism. That was Bernie the question is having defined the territory. This is a terrific phrase from political blogger for Esquire Charlie Pierce today. Days having defined the territory does he own the real estate? He does not. And I don't think he will get to the finish line. And because he's a tough old Brooklyn guy. He's even though he's from Vermont. Now, it tough old Brooklyn guy. He won't go gracefully. But I don't see him getting the votes in the end he will have to consolidate behind a more progressive person. And although a lot of feminists blame him for, you know, attacking Hillary Clinton. My guess is he will end up consolidating behind one of the more prominent women who are who have already declared, and who are competent, and who could do very well in twenty twenty
