And the Winner is ...Democracy

"So we are recording best the friday after the election so things haven't been called yet but we're pretty sure we're gonna know how this racist cali and it is going to lead to as heavy the first woman vice president and that will be a black related a woman and i have with the day here to talk about it to me. A wilson who is everything google her. I mean you're all going to hear about her in the intro that juliet. Thank you for joining me. How are you feeling. Because i got all the feelings. My champagne is a fridge chillan. I can't wait. I can't wait. I am elated. I think the only thing that is really holding me back. Like i'd always imagine that i'd be dancing in the streets when we got this news like i really are liberation celebration. I feel like. I need my liberation celebration. So my only sadness is about covid. Nineteen limiting the level of hype and party that this moment deserves. I'm so excited. I'm so excited to see. Kamala harris make history ads for women for black women for women of color for indian women and also just to have competent. Who have a heart in a people house and take our country back so important for me just throughout the campaign when vice hers bided president elect biden was just talking to people. This is just so refreshing and during that obeys where he walked right into the camera and spoke to people. I knew i had missed that by didn't know how no no now how much i have missed that. And i'm just looking forward to waking up every morning and not having to worry about what foolishness is donald trump going to do today. I'm just so excited. So i wearing my stacey. Abrams shirt today because she is the. Mvp and georgia everything that she has done. And i do wanna talk about the voters but first we gotta talk about how the fifty three percent as now fifty. Five percent the karens really care and in a extended their care majority like fifty five percent of white women voted for donald trump. This is not surprise. The not surprise at all that this is where we are so would love to hear from you when you saw the fifty five percent or you shot. What's going through your mind. I'm so sad that i expected this and i spent a lot of time. Kind of feeling level of guilt around expecting this and becoming numb to that level of betrayal that we as loan of color no expect and have experience again and again and just understanding that patriarchy is drug and white supremacy as a drug and so it's been rough to really think about how complicit the majority of white women are and their accomplices to this kind of terror their accomplices to having a lack of empathy for other marginalized people and not really seeing themselves in the reality of being marginalized people even despite what's happening on the supreme court even despite having multiple sexual predators on the supreme court and one in the white house so for me. It's it's really hard. I wrote a piece in twenty seventeen and the headline for it was. It's complicated. White women white men and white supremacy. And i have thought about it a lot and thought about this history from the plantations to now of the covenant Around how white supremacist. Patriarchy really needs. White women to continue to have it fueled. And that's the thing that i think. I have a lot of grief about that There despite them enduring all of the same kinds of misogynistic a reality Face around the world obviously with their privilege as a part of got They're still the idea that rejecting white supremacy is going to push them away from the privileges and power that they do have and it's easier to accept that to maintain what positioning they have over us. Who are not covered by. That are not protected by that. And so it's a little bit me. When i think about people who've defied bisque over fifty percent of people like heather hair or viola liu so those women were made martyrs that they dared to defy the white patriarchy in paid the price with their lives. So it's something. I think about quite a bit because i I have a sense of understanding. About how conditioning led to that and that by no means means that. I'm keeping for anyone but to say that they also really need to recognize that. That white supremacy patriarchy depends on them to go forth. And even richard spencer and the charlottesville the the language that they used around the invitation to charlottesville had language in it calling on white women. They recognized that. We need you to continue to serve your role for us to prosper. And for me as a black woman i think black men in a different power dynamic of a world where to do that i was stopped that right there because i'd be subordinate in it. But the fact that women are saying. I'll take those crumbs an order to still be over these other people. That's the part. That's still sits really painfully with me. In that we need white women to change it that this is not our job to facts but white women really need to come even harder for. There's

How to Find Inspiration in Doubt

"Hello and welcome to another episode of the duct tape marketing podcast. This is John Jansen, my guest today is Carol. She is the founder and CEO of hint water a flavored water brand she founded in two thousand and five. He's also the author of a new book called. Daunted overcoming doubts and doubters. So thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. So in your bio I, read that you were one of the I don't know about original. You've spent some time at AOL. My father-in-law still hasn't AOL account and he thinks he's he thinks it's the Internet that AOL's. That's I I met. So my real question though is, do you still have any of those CD's? You. Know what I do have a couple of the CD is that I kept and I have a few. AOL Jackets Memorabilia that I stuck in a plastic bin. For. can't can't throw that away I. Mean it was a great time. I mean it it's a you know it's sort of an iconic brand that really Steve Case. Bill Right. There were a lot of people there and I played a part in building out the e commerce and You know there were a lot of people that basically felt like. Was the only place to shop. I mean, we were kind of a very enclosed safe place where you could go and You know I really fortunate opportunity to help build out I always viewed it as like a virtual mall and so I would I would like actually. Study Mall's people would ask like, how do you not like bring in Lake J. crew and into. Building out the small and I'm like I go down to the Stanford Mall and actually figure out what other stores are sitting there. Do you know Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom's and some of the others and and that's essentially what we were doing and A community for people. It's funny too because and and we'll get look into the book but I think it's fascinating because it was really it was really a closed place originally got AOL and it wasn't the same as getting to a website that you could. Then just you know punt go somewhere else for a long time it was a very much a contained. As. You said, yeah, and it was also a place for brands to really reinvent themselves I. Mean I remember there was this one catalogue company that we were dealing with called celebration fantastic and pretty small catalogue and and They weren't doing great on the service I mean they were up against like some big guys they weren't getting the promotion. So I remember Valentine's Day rolled around round one day and You know they had this product that was like a chocolate sauce and and they were like we have this idea that we want to do one of your pop ups, those pop-ups screens come. and. They and they called it a better than sex chocolate entrepreneur and and you know people went crazy over it and and so I think it was like it was the first place where you know you could really reinvent yourself in this new channel by showcasing certain products that you have and I mean their sales just off of that product were millions of dollars and just it was absolutely insane but it was really the first place where I saw that you could build brands you know in a non traditional way which you know frankly I go back to our business, my my main business hint. My my day job, you know we fifty five percent of our business is direct to consumer and a world where Soda Is. You know that's just not the way that. Are Sold I mean if anything if they are sold online, it's through an Amazon but it's not through their own site and so I think it's it just little examples like that on my journey make me believe and make me think like how can we just do things? How can we try and how can we do things a little bit different and ultimately better. So today hint comes in twenty players if people aren't familiar with it sparkling and caffeinated. It's a non alcoholic beverage, one of the maybe the largest independent non alcoholic beverage in the world hundred. This is estimated I haven't looked at your books, a hundred and forty million dollars or so in yearly sales, two hundred employees and no famous investors involved in the company, right? That's ten today. Did you start hint to solve a problem or disrupted industry. a little bit of both. Actually you know it's I think back on the journey and you know I call myself an accidental entrepreneur because I wasn't a typical. I'M GONNA go and work for myself or I'm going to be an entrepreneur one day My Dad had actually kind of been frustrated entrepreneur and side a large company He had developed a brand that you may know called healthy choice and inside of Armor Food Company, and then ultimately they were acquired by Conagra but I i. so I had a little bit of learning working for him but I think also when I. Had grown up and tack and in many ways and being at AOL before I decided to start this company and while I, was. Really trying to solve a health problem for myself after I had had three children I wanted to lose the baby weight that I had put on and. Develop terrible adult acne I realized after looking at everything that I was putting all the food I was putting into my body that there's diet. Soda was had more ingredients in it than like I mean I I I talk about it now as I. Cared more about what I put in my car than what I put into my own body and I thought like why is that and a whole story around labels like Diet and you know there's low fat and vitamins and things like that that equated to health in my head but you weren't alone in that address. After switching from my Diet Soda over to Plain. Water, I two and a half weeks lost twenty four pounds got rid of my acne God my energy back and I said Gosh, there's just like a lot of people who are trying to figure out obviously how to get healthier and it's not. Right and and. Like if they could just actually enjoy water again, then they you know we might not have the brand new thing that cropped up about the time I was starting hint type, two diabetes you know things that are. Really. Dangerous chronic right and I thought they need to ultimately enjoy water maybe they need to do other things but that's a first step and so that's when I. Recognize that I didn't like water I aspired to be a water drinker and I start slicing bruton throwing in water and that's when. You know I thought I'm not even sure this is a company I think it's like A. I I don't know I think it's a product I'd worked for companies before right and so when I decided to take this product to whole foods and my local whole foods in San Francisco friends were would come over my house and I tell them. You know it started this little thing I wasn't even calling in a company and they're like that's so cool that you start a company I'm like is it a company? I don't know if it's a company like I have three skews like I'm not sure it's actually a company. But. That's when I really realized that I'm starting something that could actually help bigger range of people get healthier disrupted industry that doesn't care about health back. Then there was nobody calling companies mission driven I was mission driven from day one because I really wanted to help a lot of other people.

The race to a zero-emission world starts now

"We are all here today because the climate countdown has begun. And we are nowhere near where we need to be. Science tells us we must lead global heating to one point five degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. We are on track facility grease at least. Billions of people are all already suffering from our failure to act. Climate Disruption due to our dated addiction to fossil fools. He's causing unprecedented wildfires more intense frequent cyclones, floods, droughts, and other weather extremes. Boksic air pollution is choking our major cities and harming our health. And bow diversity on landon season the growing pressure. No country's immune from the climate crisis. But in every country, it is the poorest and most vulnerable were hardest hit despite having lists to cause the problem. Over the past twenty, five years reach ten percent of the global population as being responsible for more than half of all carbon emissions and the poorest fifty percent were responsible for seven percent of emissions. Ranking justice sending equality of this scale is a cancer. If we don't take now. Sensory may be one of humanity's lust. The covid nineteen pandemic has laid bare the fundamental injustice inequality of our societies. Upheaval of these pandemic presents an opportunity to chart a new course when it can address every aspect of the climate crisis at on. Easterly shows that when we grab such moments we succeed. We can build a safer fairer more resilient worlds, but we need to move quickly. That is why I'm urging government. So take six climate positive actions to recover better together. Invest in Green, jobs. Not. allowed. Polluting Industries especially coal. And fossil fuel subsidies and the price on carbon. They climate risk into account in all financial and policy decisions work together in solidarity and most important leave. No one behind. These is the course of action that thousands of these city states. Regions. University isn't investors are already choosing by committing to net zero emissions by twenty fifty at the latest. Data moving to protect people and planet's momentum is building. Cities and regions with the carbon footprint greater than the United States and companies with revenues of more than eleven point four, trillion US dollars. If now committee to net zero emissions by two, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. That's double. The number from when this initiative was launched at the Climate Action Summit in two, thousand, nine, nine. Likewise investors managing over four trillion dollars have joined the race to zero. This number also more than doubled since the initiative was first launched at the same time. But it is still necessary for governments to create the tax and regulatory frameworks that will further stimulate climate action by the private sector unions announced plans to cut its emissions at least fifty, five percent by twenty thirty and chief Clem neutrality by twenty. Fifty. And China as announced its intention to become carbon neutral before twenty sixty. And count on these and other mainly meters to present before cop twenty, six concrete plans and policies that will bring the world carbonaro throwing divide twenty-fifty. We must make sure that each country each city company bank and Interest Organization as a transition plan to reach zero net emissions. We also need to see much greater efforts to build resilience in vulnerable countries which to cause climate change, but they are the worst impacts. In the coastal Delta's the islands of the Pacific and the billion and the islands such as the efficacy trial region, we must have people of that to climate impacts as they recover from covid. Nineteen. I call on developed countries to meet their commitment to mobilize one hundred billion US dollars ear for mitigation adaptation and resilience in developing countries. We must work to create the conditions needed for a massive mobilization of funds. Also from financial institutions and private investors, we must keep building climate ambition. On the fifth anniversary of the agreement in December leaders from government business and civil society will gather online to do just that. We need to kick start the race to the Glasgow Climate Conference in Twenty Twenty. One To those who have already joined the race. I. Applaud you. But they also asked you to the Mar and much faster. You have raised your ambition and your commitment. We need you now to also raise your voices and push governments to do better. Especially, those we meet the most. To those yet to join my message is simple. We can only win the race to zero together. So I urge you. To get on boards, the countdown has begun.

Buy the way? Kyrgyzstans post-election chaos

"President whose whereabouts are unknown parliamentary offices overrun by protesters. Multiple opposition candidates vying to take the title of Prime Minister. After a national election confusion and chaos have. The former Soviet state of Kirghistan talked between Kazakhstan and China. Central Asia is a region ruled by strong men who typically get close to one hundred percent of the vote. So three years ago when in by Jane Bekov was elected Kurdistan's president uneventfully with fifty five percent was hailed as the region's first peaceful and democratic transfer of power look. Zone the but even then there were murmurs of electoral misconduct. This time the murmurs or a roar. Absence uncontested leadership has turned a country where both China and Russia have interests into a tinderbox. On Sunday K. Gestalt went to the polls to elect a new parliament and it was this event that ended up propelling, Stan about of political chaos because all of the opposition parties and also many of the people of kick stance they didn't accept the result join a Lewis Right about Central Asia for the economist and is based in Kazakhstan they started to come. In on Monday when a preliminary count showed that pro-presidential parties would be dominating parliamment and the opposition would have few seats. Book would be almost entirely shutout people took to the streets. Immediately thousands of people went to the main square in the capital Bishkek Sasi demonstrating against those results and when the police found to disperse, them will pitched battles between riot, police and protest. Of them, the protesters stormed the building housing, the president's office and Parliament and they were shouting that he should go and what is it that happened in the election that lead to such a reaction Without, that what? Protesters were absolutely furious about the I was that they believed that the results were skewed in favor of parties broadly loyal to the president. The second question that was really exercising these enraged protesters was how that was achieved and the allegation is that there was absolutely rampant vote buying I really have to say it was an open secret. In fact, it wasn't a secret that parties were going around paying people money to vote in their favour. We even know the going rate it was two thousand. Psalm, which is about twenty five dollars. Now, this is all alleged central investigation, but the evidence was was fairly credible that was circulating on social media. So when the results came in, that's why they took to the streets. What's the situation on the ground now who control? Well, events have moved in a very fluid manner fast moving because cake is Stan remains very much embroiled in this political turmoil, and really what we've seen forming is a power vacuum. The whereabouts of the president are actually unknown. By bekov says he's in control of the situation through spokespeople, but meanwhile, some political factions are at odds with other political factions. So all of those opposition forces and they're very disparate include nationalist liberal form as all kinds of different forces they are failing to find common cause. I mean we've seen mops from some actions basically aging in fisticuffs with other factions. The threat of violence has been hanging in the air in Kansas Stan and so what next how? How to unravel this? If protests have succeeded in having one of the main demands met the day after they stormed the presidential offices in parliament, the electoral commission announced that it would annul the results of those elections and they promised that there would be a rerun of the election. But of course, what's not clear with how can an election be now held in the current circumstances are power vacuum sporadic violence people out on the street so it's really unclear. If that's enough to satisfy the protesters and it's not only about the protesters. At this point, it's very much about the political factions, the clans, the people who are now jostling for power the prime minister who but bag Baranov resigned, and we have two rivals already claiming to be the prime minister. One of them is a rabble rousing nationalist former MP called Saudi Jackpot of who was actually sprung from jail during the unrest by his supporters and he had. Been in jail for kidnapping a local official during a previous bout of political unrest Mr Japan supporters have been aggressively sometimes violently trying to prevent rival factions from meeting besieging buildings in which they're meeting, throwing stones and scuffling with rivals. Basically, what happens next is a big question. It's a very unpredictable, very chaotic and potentially dangerous situation and given all that chaos and the potential for danger here. Do you do you think this has an international dimension to it? Outside powers are expressing deep concern over the situation in Kingston. On the one hand, we have China with which is Stan shares border and China has expressed concern and is clearly alarmed at reports that protesters are targeting Chinese own business interests in the country. Specifically, all my said operated by Chinese companies, and then on the other side, we have Russia, which is obviously stands former colonial power. Russia has a military base in Stan and it really doesn't like to see popular uprisings in what it considers to be its own. Geopolitical backyard, and this is of particular concern at this point in time because Russia has been looking on with great alarm at protests in Belarus on the other side of the former Soviet Union where protesters have a weeks now been coming out against the results of presidential elections indeed this week the Kremlin has started to make no secret of is concerned about events in is Stan and as basically saying that it's descending into chaos and that Moscow has obligations under a security treaty to prevent the situation from breaking down. From breaking down further I mean how how bad could this if this carries on? The confusion that Stan covertly faces may in the end how President Jiang Becker to hang onto power although it's very, very clear that at this point, he is not going to get the pliant parliament that he was hoping to get out of this election. He has three years left in office. Presidents can only serve a single term that's under a system introduced to prevent power grabs books. It's important to remember that is people have thrown two presidents in the past. So a suggestion Bekker's position is very shaky and what is really clear is the longer the power vacuum that we're currently seeing a stand remains unresolved the more likely it becomes that violence will be used to resolve it. Thanks very much for joining US join us. Thank you very much.

The Ugly Partisan Truth Behind President Trump's Stimulus Roadblock

"The. Last official jobs report before the presidential election would garner significant reason but there is no normal these days and the jobs report. Last week was immediately overshadowed by the president's Kovic Nineteen diagnosis. But for tens of millions of Americans, the state of their employment is along with covid nineteen. The only issue that really matters and it's clear that well more than half the jobs lost in the immediate aftermath of the spring shutdowns have been regained almost half ten million jobs have not. That fact alone would suggest the need for further government stimulus but hope for that faded after the president announced that he was uninterested in further stimulus bill until after the election though he then backtracked and suggested he was open to some action even so you might think that authorizing another round of perhaps two trillion dollars in stimulus would be in the interest of a White House seeking to curry support ahead of. The election, but there are reasons for their ambivalence. The harms of this covid nineteen recession are starkly uneven and are disproportionately hurting those who favor the Democrats especially poor and minority workers clumped in urban areas as well as service industry workers all over the country. Some of those are in regions where the Republican Party is strong but a considerable portion are in blue areas of the country more likely to support Democrats. Insured this recession is the most unevenly experienced economic downturn. Ever it is uneven by level by race by region but what is becoming increasingly clear is that it is uneven by party affiliation as well the economic harms of the pandemic and of attempts nationally and globally to contain it or hurting everyone. But those most inclined to vote Democrat are being hurt more than those inclined to vote Republican White Women for instance, have according to the bureau. Of Labor Statistics recovered more than sixty percent of the jobs lost in April black women however have recovered only thirty four percent. The highest earning income cortel is now above the. Employment levels of the beginning of the year. The Lowest Cortel are still twenty five percent below the national unemployment rate is seven point nine percent the unemployment rate for those twenty two, twenty four is twelve point, five percent for those over fifty five is six point seven percent. Then juxtapose those facts to who votes Republican. Versus who votes Democrat according to the Pew Center. Almost ninety percent of black women vote Democrat fifty, six percent of Republican voters are over the age of fifty five millennials skew fifty, five percent Democrat in almost every category those who are being hurt most by the recession are more likely to vote democratic. There are exceptions non college educated white men are not exactly thriving in the covert economy and according to most polls those trending toward the Republicans though the gap has been narrowing since two thousand sixteen in general however, the recession has hit cities hard and service sector cities such as New York Washington DC San, Francisco Los Angeles, and Miami especially, hard more suburban and rural areas of the country have seen. Less, dire employment losses and less economic contraction in part because governments in many Republican dominated states have been less likely to institute strict restrictions of businesses and schools. The net effect on whether the federal government will spend more to address stalled recovery with still substantial unemployment is that the geographic and demographic parts of the country that need help the most skewed Democrat and the parts that need it less Ski Republican. In. A functional political environment, there would be widespread recognition that the national economy and hence long-term prosperity for all of us is impossible if wide swath of the country are economically sinking greater New York City alone contributed about one point, six, trillion dollars to the GDP of the United States in two, thousand, nineteen, which was nearly eight percent of the national total California is about fifteen percent of the national economy. Similar sized proportions are true of major metropolitan areas throughout the country a nation with more than half of its citizens sinking economically is not a recipe for stability and strength for the whole country. Yet, our national politics seem indifferent to that reality. Political leaders appear more interested in the short term needs. Of their particular base than the overall health of the country Republicans are most egregious here though one could critique congressional Democrats for making a political calculus that holding out for a bigger stimulus rather than compromising on a smaller deal is also playing politics with economic needs of millions. The failure to pass more stimulus aid however is the equivalent of refusing to authorise disaster relief in the face of a category five hurricane that cuts through six states on the grounds that it left the rest unscathed we don't do that usually because we recognize that today, it may be Texas that needs money in an emergency and tomorrow it might be New York and that we for all our manifold differences live in one policy. But the current overlap between political affiliations and economic necessity has blinded many to that fact. The refusal of Republicans to authorize more relief spending may make sense given that their base is less impacted by the negative effects, but it will not make or keep America Great. If Wide Swath of the United States are economically imperilled, the politics may explain what is happening. They do not justify it, and in the end, we will all be the poorer if we do not act collectively and quickly.

"People want to move out of this corona world out of this fragility out of uncertainty they're ready for change and they're ready to move on earth. Lafond Lines tweet ahead of her first State of the Union address was full of Vim, vigor and dynamism. Her focus is one of recovery being achieved through making the E U Carbon-neutral. She said the e you should set a target to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least fifty, five percent by twenty thirty that's up from a current target of forty percent. But how much will all twenty seven member states agree with her well to tell us more joined on the line from Brussels by Kalina or Russia. Cough is the international climate politics reporter for politico. Everyone. Welcome to the program clinic. Good to have you. Thank you very much good morning in Brussels. This was a hugely important first speech for US love underline wasn't it? Yes. Indeed I mean festival as he said, it's her first one and then secondly, of course comes at a time when I'm pretty much everything has changed the thing. Kobe. Pretty much over through all of the original plants she had her commissioned head. which was also, it's been interesting to see how she would frame some of the main policy priorities. In her speech yesterday. And the way she framed him was very much from an environmental perspective wasn't it? Exactly, I think one of the interesting aspects of today's speech was that she very much emphasized to green course that the European Commission once the you to go and you may know in December she had announced to flagship programme of the European Green deal that's meant to make the. Climate neutral. So slash greenhouse gas emissions to zero, but twenty fifty and she very much again doubled down on that message yesterday saying that pursuing that course an even strengthening efforts to cut emissions will very much help the US 'em attempts to come out of the pandemic economic fallout as well as become more, and that's a new word more resilience and two whether future crises. How does she intend to fuse the two ideas namely of recovery from covert economically and to ensure that the European. Union is carbon neutral twenty-fifty. The message that she and her and her commission pursuant very many other players as well. I mean essentially is that. It doesn't cost the economy to. Do More on the environment to do more discussion missions but actually it will help and promote economic growth in jobs, and so that's very much how both these programs so being married and I think initially and Kovic. Starting the pandemic really having an economic effect was there was quite a big, quite a lot of concern that it would undermine the US green agenda but rather to the country as seniors become a growing realization that going green. is going to be good for the economy and that's a very much a message shows us on the line push yesterday, and then on the other hand I think it's also become much more. Evident. That climate change impacts will hurt you economically I mean yesterday she gave a number of speeches. We see glaciers melting they're more and. More, destructive droughts across Europe and more and more people feel the impact and I think. That comes with a cost and so there's more of a waning to the fact that S- and the climate change is an economic impact not just then. Potentially social or environmental

Top EU official proposes new 2030 target to reduce emissions

"Earlier today. European Commission President Ursula von Delaying gave her first State of the Union address to the European. Parliament. It's fair to say that it has been and will be more closely scrutinized than the setpiece usually is the EU is beset like the rest of the world by an ongoing pandemic and associated economic turbulence, and also attempting to ease the United Kingdom out of the block with as little damage to the fixtures and fittings as possible and the UK's latest history on x over the last week or so demonstrate that this remains an unsolved problem while joined with more Bite Niamey Leery Europe correspondent at the Irish Times. Niamey before we talk about the details of what Slovan delay and had to say, did it strike you? There was an overall theme or tone she was swinging for I. Think it was quite striking. Future focused. She talked about how can we get out of the Democrats economic repercussions in a way that says. The continent for the future. So it was very much to do with tying together the various different goals whether that's a climate and economic development where increasing digitalization on. Also a one section of her speech, which I thought was particularly strong was on discrimination and efforts at kind of acknowledging the reality in the block of racism and discrimination. Based on sexual orientation or religious beliefs. So it was quite wide ranging and then the other aspect of it was. She proposed making it easier for the EU to come up with common policy when it comes to international relations particularly on matters relating to human rights sanctions. So just as a liberation on that idea of general tone this being her first state of the Union as as commission president does it does it seem that we understand what her idea of the European Union is. I think she Saturday as being. A sort of an unfinished project what it ought to be somewhere where people can have a quality of life get paid fairly for work have social protections that you're does better on that than other parts of the world, and that's part of the reason why able better able to weather the pandemic but that it's not enough and she said that there would be a new framework introduced to. Member states to set minimum wages in order to make work pay property. Then an in addition to that there was the The section on discrimination which I think was unusual in acknowledged the struggles in the block in terms of she mentioned a particular discrimination against Rome people on also the LGBTQ I free zones in. Poland or she called out as inhumane. And so I think she's she was quite strong meticulous division of the block as being a place where people and live more freely with rights and have a better quality of life in general but I think that she also you know it's it's. It's quite telling that she. She had. Many. Difficulties take me in terms of international relations they were for her to talk about it was difficult relationship with Russia difficult relationship with China difficult relationship with the United States difficult relationship Britain as well. Well, let's talk about some of those difficult relationships and because we are here broadcasting from London let's talk about the difficult relationship. The now has with the UK did brexit get much of a mention? She did mention us. So she said that with every day that passes it becomes more difficult for deal to be reached and she also said that. The EU would stand by with the agreement would never at go back on its the an agreement that had been passed by the European Parliament Anheuser Commons and that had been jointly agreed by the UK Andy you to Protect citizen's rights but also she said first and foremost the Good Friday Agreement on the department and it was quite interesting as well to know that she she also quote the late John Hume, the Nobel laureate. And former SDLP leader from dairy and she said that she described him as one of the Great Europeans. And mentioned that he he recently passed away on us used a quote from him to kind of talk about the strength of diversity which I thought was quite. An interesting use of quotes. It was notable high. She was sort of writing in that story, which is I suppose a Northern Irish story really into this story of the European Union. You mentioned the difficulty of the relationship with Russia and obviously the country of which us live underlying walls defense minister. Germany has found itself once again. On the front line over that relationship having taken in the apparently poisoned opposition politician Alexei Navalny did she took you light any kind of? Way of how the e you can live alongside Russia. She was quite I thought her words were quite firm on Russia's so she said. That the poison she mentioned the poisoner Nevada and said that it wasn't a one sauce and she said, no. Number of gas, pipelines is GONNA. Is GonNa fix that relationship she also am I thought spoke quite in quite heartfelt way in solidarity with the people of Belarus Moore she said that they'd be brave and gone out on the streets and they should have the they shouldn't be pieces on someone else's chessboard what she said, but they should have the ability to determine their own future. You said at the top of this item that she attempted to link the recovery. Well, hopeful eventual recovery from the pandemic the associated economic problems to broader themes of climate in the future on climate in particular. Did she have anything of note to say. So. What? What under nine has proposed that the target for the block to reduce emissions should be increased fifty five percent by twenty thirty, that's compared to a previous commitment to forty percent. This is compared to nine thousand, nine, hundred levels of emissions, and she said that this would be vital in order for the block to reach its Paris Agreement commitments on also its goal of becoming climate neutral by twenty fifty on the way she she described the landmark agreement of the e you to join me borrow seven, hundred, fifty, billion, euro. As an opportunity to do this by directing at least thirty percent or thirty seven percent of the investment towards green initiatives. So things like development of green hydrogen. Renovating homes with. Forty percent of emissions and also. Increasing the car charging network electric vehicle charging that things like that an while this could go in. With kind of digital developments there. For example, at fast broadband were available continent wide including in rural areas that would both alive for rural development but also for things like you know people to work from home more easily and things like that. So she she s she she argued that these things could go hand in hand essentially. But Green groups have been quick to come out and say that fifty five percent of the target isn't enough now some of them had themselves called for that in the. In the past but I guess with the scale of the disaster that they say we're facing, you know they're always going to want to push for more and more ambitious targets

Jeffrey Toobin on Writing About Trump

"Jeffrey toobin joins us now from northern Connecticut. His latest book is called True Crimes and misdemeanors the investigation of Donald, trump, it's already a New York Times Bestseller Jeff Welcome back to the podcast. It is a pleasure to be here Michelle. Well, we are talking about probably an unpleasant topic you've been covering this regularly for the New, Yorker, talking about it on CNN, the investigations of Donald. Trump plural I think and the impeachment process at what point did you think to yourself? Okay. This should be a book as well. Right at the beginning you know I have a special interest in fun for independent investigations of the presidency. I was one of the prosecutors in the Iran Contra -CATION in the Lawrence Walsh Investigation wrote my first book opening arguments about that did a book about. The Starr investigation of Whitewater Lewinsky in the Clinton years and so I know that the behind the scenes, stories of these investigations are always interesting. But what was a nerve ing as I started in was that I didn't realize that Muller which completely shut down all access I had to trust that eventually, I would get access to the Muller Office, but it was incredibly unnerving journalists to. Spend almost two years working on his side of the investigation really from the outside even though you've written about impeachment, you've written books about investigations. This book feels different and I'm curious to hear your take on what makes this book in the process of writing the book different from those previous books. Trump makes it different? The president is such an enormous figure in American history, his complete disregard. For norms his constant lying his inability or unwillingness to play by rules that Democrats and Republicans have played for all of certainly my conscious life it makes everything about these last three and a half years just feel different from anything I'd ever covered in anything I've ever felt as a citizen we've had conservative presidents. We've had liberal presidents, but we've never had a president like trump and. Both he as a protagonist in my story and the people who gravitate to him just make it totally different. Okay. Here's one way in which it feels different to me and I'm curious to hear your take and it's about trump but it's also about the reception of trump among Americans or certain group of Americans and it's that every single time there are some kind of event trump takes. Some action that seems to be a game changer. There's this expectation or there has been the expectation. Okay. Well, now, this is the end of this changes things, and that goes back to his not filing his tax returns during the campaign, but then I think the next point was with access Hollywood tapes and it's been that way ever since where where something will happen and people will say. Well now, that's it. You know there's gotTa be a consequence and then there really isn't a consequence I. Think you're right in part I mean you know and and you can go through others whether it was praising the white supremacists in Charlottesville standing by Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki, and disparaging the American intelligence agencies firing James Comey which seemed like complete departures from how we expect presidents to behave. Another theme of my journalistic career has been the evolution of the Republican Party that if you go back to Richard Nixon the turning point in Watergate was when seven Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of impeachment and then ultimately Barry Goldwater Hugh Scott John Rhodes went to Nixon and say we can't support you anymore those three famous Republicans The Republican Party has turned into a trump call. And the ability of the president to do absolutely anything no matter how outrageous and retain the support of that forty percent of the country. Is. Something we've never seen before it's been building through the past couple of decades, but I think that's what accounts for the phenomenon you describe, which is no matter what he does the the political architecture of our time really never changes anymore because fifty five percent of the people are appalled forty forty percent of the people stick with trump and thus we have the election we have. So you're saying it's essentially the fact that he's not held. Accountable is a result of the fact that the party has sort of been entirely captured by trump. He has captive and very loyal audience among Americans, and then presumably the other arm of that is what's happened with the media and that certain is catering to and delivering that message. I. Can just add one thing. You know a lot of people like what trump is doing. It's not like this forty percent says, well, you know it's bad that he fires Komai. It's bad that he says, all these races. Thanks their gladis says racist things. I. Mean there are a lot of people in the country who have the same attitudes and I think that's what's chilling for people like me who was. I like to think is not a racist, but the way trump behaves in public it's a feature, not a bug people don't support him in spite of his excesses they support him because it's

Bitcoin Privacy w/ Chris Belcher

"So before we get into it, we'll start with the basics permission list. blockchain's are necessarily public, transparent and DONNAS. That's another way of saying that anyone can look at them without any sort of approval or credentials which makes them public. You can see everything that's ever happened, which makes them transparent, and while you can track what individual identities do, you can't see who those identities tie to in real life, which makes them pseudomonas. But blockchain's are notably not anonymous. It's kind of a wonky point but one worth emphasizing anonymous in this context means there's no continuous identities. So if injuries and I were talking on a cooking forum, the let's post anonymously if we were exchanging messages on a topic and then did so from one week to the next, we wouldn't actually know that we'd spoken before. That's not how most forums work though most forums and most things on the Internet are PSEUDONOMAS and while Andres might not know he's talking to me Adam. He'd see my username my pseudonomas identity block chef, and even though he doesn't know that's my real name he'd be able to figure out that he had talked to block chef before. So in Bitcoin, the situation is much the same instead of calling myself block chef on a recipe forum in Bitcoin I'm known by my bitcoin addresses, and while I might have a lot of bitcoin addresses. A lot of these Sudan's identities. This creates opportunities where privacy can start to unwind and away that sometimes is worse than you might think. For years this has been known to be a problem known to be sort of just an intractable part of the way that cryptocurrency and transparent public blockchain's work. But there have been a lot of ideas and a lot of inventions which have sort of come out which are still many in development now, which are trying to solve this problem which brings us to today's guests. So Chris with that set up that I get anything wrong and talk to me about how you're thinking about privacy these days. No I think you've explained that very well. So a concrete example Ed says people's bitcoin addresses all the PSEUDONOMAS identities it's whether coins are on and a common problem. The people do is address reuse. That's why they use the same address again and again, and again in this analogy, that's like someone using the same pseudonomas name again and again that again, an using you address for each payments on then never again is a bit like making you pseudonomas name and then discarding it you're done with it and just easy another one. So. In that circumstance, it's not anonymous, but it's almost the same as anonymous because there's no reuse between the identities it's not anonymous, but it's pretty darn close. PSEUDONOMAS swear if used correctly, there's automous identity every time however, the identities are linked together. So on the block chain, you see bitcoins flowing from one addressed to another. So it's not like the identities completely new that linked to the loans previously. As, well, as information from the blockchain, there's also leaks based on things like the person's it address. Oh maybe they've posted this address on a public forum somewhere at other leagues that come in as well. What of scary scenario where privacy is broken and like is it for an individual? It becomes scary or is it a kind of Meta threat that's really affecting the whole network when you're talking about privacy and sort of like address re-use things like that. In worst case scenario what's the thing that happens all of the above essentially so one example is if you're a regular user and you want to use bitcoin to buy some coffee, a nightmare scenario is you go to the coffee shop and Buy Cup of coffee and the person serving you can see your whole financial history so they can see income and they can see or the other spends you make. Whether you donate to such charities or anything like that. It's also problem if you'll business because that means if you untie income and. Of Public, you'll competitors could see how much you're paying your staff, how much you pay for supplies and all that kind of thing where you allocate your resources and for the network as a whole, there is actually a related problem of fungibility, which is what I did is privacy. So that's where a fungibility is a necessary property of money. So we have properties like to visibility portability durability and fungibility is just one of those. You need this to be good money and it's the property that every unit is the same as every other unit that means a good can be used as money because. It means it can be accepted for example, banknotes if you get paid with five dollars or five euros, it's the same as five years in general this particular banknote having some special thing you need to check. So the nightmare scenario there is that every time someone accepted Bitcoin, they'd have to actually look up to some kind of database to some kind of checklists check the these particular coins receiving were not for example, banned by some institutional, some government or something, and if that what's happened because these blacklist, these kind of look up tables would be centralized it would destroy the decentralisation property of Bitcoin. But Chris just being a little bit facetious and playful here. What's the problem with that? Like they're just looking at your financial history what can anyone really do about that and if you can see everyone else's financial history to isn't that only fair? Well I. Suppose Turn Back so you could Stephanie CEO Financial History please. Of reasons why you wouldn't want to share that kind of thing and going back to the examples I said of the merchant of the business who runs a business in uses bitcoin. Their privacy is an important part of their business because they need to keep secret, for example, how much to pay US suppliers or they need to keep secret other things that they do, and that's an important for a healthy economy. There's good reasons to hide things from. The public or from your competitors yeah and I think it's important to point out too that there already is like kind of an uneven playing field as far as privacy goes. If you're willing to work for it, you can have a greater degree of financial privacy and if you don't work for it or you don't know how to or you don't think that's important then you're going to be at a disadvantage compared to people who have greater privacy. Even beyond the commercial considerations I think the even greater consideration is the fact that without privacy in your financial affairs, Hugh can be easily targeted for your political associations and your political expression, which given the fact that more than fifty five percent of the world's population live under authoritarian or corrupt regimes means that it is very, very easy to suppress the fundamental mechanisms of democracy representation, political expression, freedom of speech, freedom of Association Freedom Assembly, Etcetera, simply by violating privacy, and then imposing punitive measures as retribution for political expression

His was basically a vote of confidence saying he still likes apple for a number of reasons. Among them services as a long-term investable theme in his estimation with combined annual growth rate of eighteen percent. Those could be adding as much as six dollars to earnings per share by this time next year. IPHONES active installed base is about nine hundred million units that point. Even with lengthening upgrade cycles, Sancar figures, you look at about one hundred eighty million upgrades annually. He also likes the possibility of new subscriptions coming from the Cupertino Company. Apple is bound to return more money to shareholders and hey, look. We're back to services for a third time. Expects recurring revenue and that segment to go from forty-one percent a couple of years ago to as much as fifty five percent next year. Cowen and company hasn't outperform rating on Apple.

He is still a fan of the Cupertino Company. Quoting his note, we continue to be positive on apple shares led by the combination of strong replacement cycle with upcoming five G.. iphone launches leverage of strong services portfolio, benefiting from large installed base of users as well as an underappreciated leverage to work from home trends. If? You're wondering what the bad news is. It's not bad news exactly. J. P.

How Churches Are Reopening During Coronavirus

"More than seventy percent of church. I'm getting these stories from a thing called Christian headlines More than seventy percent of churches are meeting again and most practice social distancing. Most Protestant churches in the United States have returned to in person. Services. And most are also practicing social distancing by closing off certain seats to battle the coronavirus pandemic. According to a new life way research survey. More than seventy percent of Protestant churches met in person in July, a stark contrast to April when only ten percent met. The survey. Of. Protestant pastors shows seventy one percent of churches met July nineteenth seventy three percent. Met July Twelfth and seventy percent, July fifth. Meanwhile, churches are taking extra precautions to stop the spread of the virus for example, ninety four percent or providing hand, sanitizer, masks, or gloves to those needing it. Eighty six percent or conducting additional cleaning surfaces. Seventy six percent or closing seats to increase distance between people and to practice. Social distancing. Fifty nine percent recommend mast. Masks. About a third or requiring them. Although, most churches did not meet in May. A majority fifty five percent said they met the first weekend in June. Still, Twenty one percent of pastor say they have not met. Since the pandemic started. One, fifth of churches have offered drive in services during the pandemic, according to the study, resuming imperfect worship services has not been reverting to worship as usual. Says Scott McConnell Executive Director at lifeway research churches are making efforts to make the environment safe. But these efforts are often second gas by those who either want more precautions or less restrictions. Although most churches are meeting in person again only twenty nine percent or holding in Person Bible Studies. Only thirteen percent are holding children's activities. Maintaining social distance and necessary sanitation is very difficult with younger ages. To complicate things further saw the volunteers who normally work with kids and students are in high risk groups who are not ready to return anytime soon. That's pretty interesting.

Trump says all polls that have him losing are 'fake'

"Boxes Newest, presidential election poll has Joe Biden ahead of president trump by eight points among registered voters. Chris Wallace broke that news to trump in the interview that just aired on Fox and here's what happened next. But at this point. You're losing. First of all I'm not losing. Because those are fake polls. They were faking twenty sixteen, and now they're even more fake. Must be a lot of fakery going on them. Because this is the tenth time there have been ten more than ten polls since June that show Biden beating trump in fact, so many polls now show him beating trump by double digits that we couldn't fit them all on screen. Here's the newest one. The Washington Post. ABC News poll showing Biden leading trump fifty five percent to forty percent a fifteen point lead so that Fox. Poll is actually better for trump. It only has them losing by eight points. Let's talk more about this with the senior columnist for Bloomberg Opinion Tim O'Brien. Tim Thing we don't take these fake lies seriously enough. He says fake news fake polls. He's alleging a vast conspiracy by all of the country's major scientific bolsters to rig an election. That's crazy, but we just reported like Oh. Yeah, he's said. The polls are back again. Well because he's been saying, everything has been faked for so long Brian Right there. There was the fake Russia investigation. There was the Ukraine hoax others, the corona virus hoax, and now we have the polling hoax I think the reality. Is that the fax and the World Around Donald Trump? Now have him in a Hammerlock, and and he can't really talk his way out of these because there are litmus tests I think the American public sees right in front of them. What's happening? With the coronavirus pandemic, and regardless of where trump lays the polls right now. He's going to be reality tested in November. And I think he's. A lot of US got it wrong in two thousand sixteen in terms of pulling back then so he's coming from. A position where where the polls radically underestimated his performance back then I think the pollsters have really changed their game this time around in two thousand sixteen I think. Voters with a high school education undercounted and voters with a college education. We're over counted I. Think the pollsters have gotten that under wraps in this upcoming election. I think in the last election. You heading muted, turn out for Hillary Clinton among voters of color. I think that could be radically turned around in the upcoming election, and and that's just not something. That, he can stave off forever, obviously, because November's right around the corner now and need I. remind everybody who worked for the Bloomberg campaign. You know the numbers don't lie events. There are real votes and he has the votes seriously.

A Genocide of Black Brazilians

"I know. We're GONNA talk about police violence over the next forty five minutes, but before kind of delve into specifics I like to get everybody on the same page. Brazil in breakdown, some basic facts history that you have to know to understand. What we're GonNA talk about today. So I, some promos Brazil a country of two hundred million people in which fifty five percent identify as black or Brown, which corresponds to a lighter skinned. Race Person. and I know you're wondering why. How is it possible that Brazil can be fifty? Five percent black, well Brazil was actually the largest importer of enslaved Africans over the course of more than three hundred years. More than four million enslaved Africans from West Central, Africa arrived on its shores, and it was also the last country in the West who abolish slavery. It did so in eighteen eighty eight. And one in abolish slavery, and subsequently became a republic. There was no government to attempt to actually include blacks in society whether it be through education through housing through Employment Black Brazilians were simply left to fend for themselves. And around this time this is when we see for Bellas sprout around major cities for villas. Swab communities. That are created by people who are building their own houses and on communities without government support. and. A lot of the stuff that. I'm going to talk about as it relates to police. Violence in Brazil can be tied to those facts that I just listed about Brazil. So can you tell us a little about the state of police violence in Brazil? Can you characterize for our audience? While I'll I'll try to be brief, but there's a lot to say about it so. Police violence police harassment isn't to Brazil. It's brutal goes unpunished. It's getting worse and worse, and it's inherently anti-black. The Pool. People who suffer from police violence are almost always. Black Impor-. Black impoverished. Let me just give you some basic numbers and stats because I think it's best to start there, and then we can go from there. So in the first five months of twenty twenty realization Eto has already broken the record for murders by police within a five month period they've been seven hundred and forty four murders, and this is the most in twenty two years. Now Mind you. This is happening during a pen Dimic. Last year. There were almost six thousand murders compete committed by police throughout the entire country. in two thousand fifteen, there were three thousand and three hundred forty five, so obviously the shows that police violence is increasing. And at least eighty percent of these people are black. So for Brazilians and especially Brazilians. Who are activists? Many people call this genocide against black people, because so many people are dying every gear. that. Just to. To emphasize how horrible it is. They people call genocide. There are two things that I wanted to talk about that kind of really get to the heart of this violence. Since Brazil is A. Very mixed country, mixed race country, the lines between black and white are often very fuzzy like. Sometimes, you just don't know sometimes. It's possible that a person could be black in one part of the country and white in another part of their country, but in Brazil. There's common saying that the police always knows who is black. Mainly because the police targets black people, and in the second, saying that is, that is almost always repeated by government officials police, and even you know regular people in the street is. Monje, it'll mortal Ed Bongino bone that means a dead bug is a good book. So, we combine these two. Sayings and thoughts that means that black people in Brazil are suffering. At the hands of police.

Sadly mass incarceration may not be far behind a study published in sage journals and March of two thousand nineteen showed nearly half of all us. Citizens have an immediate family member that is a spouse parent, sibling or child who has been incarcerated for at least one night. The study which was led by Cornell researchers is the first ever to pinpoint the percentage of American families touched by the country's prison system researchers surveyed more than four thousand subjects who were representative of the country's makeup as a whole to find out whether they had family members who had ever spent time in jail or prison the. The study leaders thought that the number might hover around twenty three percent, but the real figures shocked them a we spoke by e mail with Peter Ends. The lead study author. He said we were very surprised that nearly one in two adults have had an immediate family. Members spend at least one night in jail or prison that siblings were the most common immediate family member to have been incarcerated, and the, even among the most educated those with a bachelor's degree or more, almost one in three. That's thirty percent have had an immediate family member spent time in jail or prison America has the world's incarceration rate with more than two point, two million people jailed or imprisoned. Jamming the entire population of the city of Houston, college educated white people where the least likely to encounter this phenomenon, according to the study, just fifteen percent of them had a family member in jail or prison on the flipside about sixty percent of African. Americans and people with lower levels of education had close experiences with the prison system, however, fifty five percent of African Americans with college degrees still had a relative who had been jailed imprisoned ends attributes the high percentage of Americans with incarcerated family members to a number of. The length of prison sentences handed out in the United States the country's tendency to impose prison sentences rather than treatment. It's very rigid parole system that leads many to return to prison, often without a commission of new crimes and the high level of pretrial incarceration about twenty years ago. The majority of People Arrested on even felony charges were released without posting bail, but since then bail bonds have exploded into an industry where two billion dollars per year and people who can't afford to pay can wind up spending long. Long stints in local jails awaiting trial, you can listen to our episode. Is there a better alternative to cash bail? For March two thousand eighteen, for more on that subject, the authors of the current study hoped that their research will remove some of the stigma of incarceration by showing how widespread it is, and said sentences for both non violent and violent crimes need to be reduced. We also need a correctional system that helps prepare those who are incarcerated return to society and supports these individuals when they're released.

"Win reelection in twenty twenty and that's a boost from the economy, especially if Americans still vote with their wallets in mind, Rick Newman, senior columnist at Yahoo. Finance has been looking at math formulas from the center for politics. Rick. What's up here? President Trump's approval rating net rating is generally in ten category. Which is to say latest survey. I looked at his approval was forty two no correction forty three percent. But it was fifty five percent. So that would be minus twelve on net. And then the center for politics says that if you're in that range you need to minimum of two percent GDP growth and preferably higher. If you're gonna reach that wrestle two hundred and seventy electoral votes, and guess what? Most forecasts for growth in twenty twenty when this will matter. Are four two percent or less there. Some saying maybe it's going to be more like one point five percent in twenty twenty. And there are also some people who think we could be the beginning of a recessive by that. So what Trump is going to need in the middle of twenty twenty. He's a boost in economic growth, and it's not quite right. That could come from. All right. So if GDP is the key factor here, then what he suggests the president do to help himself or help the country. Well, I think the very first thing he could do in. This regard is resolve the trade disputes with China, and I get you kinda get the feeling that he realizes this. I mean, he has threatened to some more draconian things, but not actually them even though deadline some have come and gone. And he basically has not done some of the things he said he would do like impose even higher tariffs on Moore Chinese imports. So I think if he could some of the waters on trade that would certainly help CEO confidence and business confidence a little bit. There's another thing. President Trump is very clearly trying to do which is job own the Federal Reserve into cutting interest rates, and he'd even trying to get these two guys appointed to the federation to the making committee at the fed. That's Herman Cain. Stephen Moore who he knows advocate for lower rates for cutting rates. He sort of wants to have his surrogates at the fed arguing inside the fed the case for cutting rates. I don't know if he's going to get that. But it would fit were to cut rates in late twenty nineteen or in the first six months of twenty twenty it probably would stimulate the economy. There's a chance it would be short lived in. It could ultimately do more harm than good. But President Trump doesn't worry about the long-term very much. He just worries about getting what he wants the short term speaking with senior columnist Rick Newman at Yahoo finance. He's written a piece entitled what Trump needs to win in twenty twenty and according to some calculations he'd need better GDP growth to help. Chances of cheating, the two hundred seventy electoral votes needed to win the presidential election the potential for the growth, he needs is it there. The if proper levers are pulled in an economy. That's what ten years into an expansion. I think that's the question. Maybe not it's possible that the potential for that GDP growth is actually not there. We got a lot of stimulus in twenty eight from the Trump tax cuts, and there was also an increase in federal spending. And the the stimulus from the tax coach is basically teetering out. It's sort of peaked in the second quarter of last year. We know that GDP growth for the year two point nine percent. That's that's good. But that's not fantastic. And if you think well, you sell your wallet on stimulus and the best you got out of it was two point nine percent GDP growth that wasn't much. We know now that, you know, congresses split between Democrats and Republicans Trump is not going to get any friendly legislation through congress in the next year and a half. I mean, I guess the one exception the one area where there is some kind of bipartisan interest with the infrastructure Bill, but it seems impossible that Democrats would go along with any kind of Trump priority this point and by the way. Trump has not really proposed and infrastructure Bill is just kind of proposed us in its general way without us without a real legislative proposal. So I don't think there is going to be any lever that Trump or anybody on his side is going to be able to Paul. Thanks, rick. Rick Newman senior columnist at Yahoo. Finance, by the way. CBS news says President Trump is expected to report today that his campaign raised more than thirty million dollars in the first quarter. That's more than twice what the top two.

But komo's Steve McCarron has a couple of resorts have already set opening dates including crystal mountain. Crystal mountain open. On friday. It'll be interesting to see who comes out and trust. What we've got up here. There's enough snow here to open two chairlifts to get the season going over the past two years. The resort has invested three million dollars into snow making equipment sixteen permanent. Five hydrants. No guns were added this year alone from near the resorts base to mid mountain being able to pump our own snow and fill in the base area. So that way we can get started a little earlier and assist mother nature in the whole winter process. It just increases our chances of opening earlier near deer. Fresh snow is in the forecast. Crystal mountain will be open through the weekend, then close again on Monday and Tuesday of next week, and then reopen on Wednesday, Steve McCarron, KOMO news.

NBC reporter wonders how long the American majority is going to tolerate being pushed around by a bunch of people in rural America, you know, what this is we talked about it yesterday. You'll get a map of all the counties in the contiguous forty eight states. And it's ninety nine percent read. It's blue everywhere else in the cities, and then the coast, and that's what this guy's talking about. They in the blue in this. They are the majority, and you people out there in rural America, you're Randy state and read county p U R. Are the minority in your bullying people around? Asta think that the left stood up for minorities? I thought the left and the democrat party was there to protect the minority. What apparently not because they think of themselves now as the majority being pushed around by a bunch of you, hayseeds and Hicks who live in red rural and sub urban areas. You know, how they're doing this. They're running this silly stupid comparisons. You know, the Democrats got fifty five percent of the votes for Senate Republicans got thirty seven percent of the votes for Senator and still the Republican pickup sheets. Exactly as it's been designed, you don't cough. That's exactly how the Senate was designed. Every Senator every state gets two senators so that everybody in the state is represented equally review without regard for population in the Senate. It's over in the house where population is considered and districts are created drawn. Maude vahard. You wanna talk about more Bihar accused the Republicans of winning in the Senate because of gerrymandering. Pokes? It's impossible gerrymander the Senate. Every state gets two of them gerrymandering happens when congressional districts are redrawn and take weird shapes, but gerrymandering this she's considered a leading light. Gerrymandering is why the Republicans won the Senate? Yeah. And they picked up seats with only thirty seven percent of the vote for exactly because the founders even though this is a majority rule country, the founders built in all kinds of protections for minorities, which the left USA champion. Telegu folks, they are on the verge of trying to come up with ways to basically wipe you and your point of view out as far as having any input in elections or any influence. They're tired of you sick of your they're tired of dealing with you. You're not legitimate. You're in a lot of other things to your nuts mart all of these things. And they're fed up losing to you.

"People can end should finish the job that specifically the only mistake that dictatorship made was that it favored torture over murder. Right. He wants to kill his political opponents. That's what. And so what would cause fifty five percent of the voters to vote for a guy who said these things don't laugh, so that's why we got to look carefully at. What is our fifty five percent of Brazilians? Terrible. People doubt. It right. It's easier to talk about it's funny, and that which should also probably make us think about what's happening here. Sixty three billion people here voted for Donald Trump. Terrible people, right. You know, I don't know where we know. We're more comfortable saying, the Brazilians are all terrible people. But it's really there. You know, have more empathy for Trump voters Brazilian stance. The Bruins like those New York Times pieces like who were those Trump voters? But we should also say that in a country where again that where the political establishment had abandoned the working class and those living in poverty of which this is substantial number in Brazil there also a staggering murder rate and sixty thousand homicides year. So there is a sense then that guy like this can capitalize on look, man. Things are out of control. You can't get a job. If you do get a job. It doesn't pay the black people and the gay people and the foreigners or whoever he deemed is is the leftists are coming to get you. And you're not safe in your home or walking down the street, you might get murder, which is true. That makes that very this. That makes this his overall message of strength, which is very similar to Trump work and lets people look past this or reframe it, and he doesn't mean it. He just means he's tough, and he's not gonna take any crappy. He's going to get things done. Well, it's interesting that in that. I mean, we don't have you know, that quite that bad in terms of murder rate in a particular area. But he did try to sort of get that idea across the campaign. And since I mean, he's he's going around saying that ice has to liberate towns in Long Island from MS thirteen the he said literally that they're looking out their windows like in World War Two for the allied troops coming in leprosy. They actually the example of where that actually they made up leprosy they make up threats consistently makeup threats that and it's so good. I mean, like, I don't I wouldn't pay attention to at argument to a debate on television. You know, we we before the show went on the air. We were talking a little bit of at all three of us had enough of the debates, and you know, everybody's debate. Regardless. We'll they're great. But I mean enough debating, right? It's not a great way to solve a problem. But either never in the history of of cable news has anyone ever said this line. I've used often how Manfred Cesco great point at every thought about it that way never happens. Pitta Pitta right winger in a left-winger that has never happened. So the combs wanna bunch. You're right. That's right. Yeah. So, you know. By the same token. I don't pay attention to these debates on television as I'm listening in the background plane clip. And then a guy said they've got leprosy. And I was like what like it worked it paid. Attention one is leprosy mentioned on cable TV, though, like I said, I think you look at Latin America, and you see a little bit of the US's future. If and when we are not on top economically. I think so much of the make America. Great again. Yes is racism, but he's also like we're losing our, you know, role as the hegemony or the economic superpower. And we are right is become more of a multipolar world. There are new economic forces. China's one Brazil is definitely another. And which is I mean, very ironic that Trump is congratulating them when you know, he could also be like Brazil is stealing. Our auto maker, whatever you don't like their power how to week give it to. But what I'm saying is like, we're. In some ways Americans have an opportunity to avoid. I think what countries like Brazil and Argentina and other countries which have staggering inequality less so than before. But staggering still because even though we have staggering. We are. We're not quite there. Not quite there. And we have a chance to turn this ship around before..
