US election to have far fewer international observers than planned
"There are lots of theories and predictions about the various things that could go wrong with the U. S November election that makes the role of election observers perhaps more important than ever, especially international election observers who could beam or impartial than American citizens. As the world's Rupert Chinois reports. These monitors have just started their mission in the US The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe or OS Sea, is the largest international body charged with monitoring elections It wanted to bring 500 observers for the upcoming US selections. Instead, there will be about 130, mostly because of covert concerns. Fewer people than expected volunteered to come to the U. S. The major thing that we're going to have to make an adjustment on is thie actual in polling station Election Day observation That said All other aspects of the mission remain effectively unchanged. That's the leader of the S. C. E s mission in the US Polish senator and European Parliament member Ursula got sick at the end of the day. I'm so certain it's going to be accurate Gonna be a true reflection and impartial reflection objective of though what's been happening here in the United States gets sick, will lead a 30 member team that will issue an interim report in three weeks. We're following legal developments were following the camp. Pain and as much as the environment. The atmosphere of the campaign were following the postal ballot just before the election get. 16 will be joined by 100 additional monitors from 30 countries. They'll deploy in pairs under a mandate of strict non interference. They'll be watching things like voter registration, mail in ballots and access to the polls. We'll also look at media coverage, including intolerant rhetoric gets sick, says the monitors will attempt to compensate for their smaller numbers by observing a quote representative sample of polling locations. What we're having to go to do on Election Day is pick our places well, but it will be, I would say the analysis there will be more anecdotal because the sample group will Regrettably, be too small, and that is not anybody's fault. The S C E typically observes elections in developing countries, but like all other 56 members of the global organization The U. S. Has also obligated to invite international election observers. Those observers on Lee started coming in 2002 after the messy Bush v. Gore election of 2000. Not all states have allowed the monitors. In those this year, just 28 States and the District of Columbia have invited international observers. There's also the added complications of President Trump's repeated questioning of mail in ballots, claims of a rigged election and evasion on whether he'll respect the results of the election. Get sick, refused to comment on what she called those hypotheticals at this stage of can't prejudge, you know, I mean, I'm hearing that there are concerns, but then we need to have evidence space We need to see. You know, we need to see the fact we need to see whether things really do or do not go wrong. But those concerns are white, so important tohave international monitors, says Judith Kelly, a professor of political science and dean of Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy. What I find striking is that the United States In many ways was the driving force behind the creation ofthe The whole idea of international election observers and have fostered that movement throughout the world observing elections worldwide, and it is rather inconceivable that we're finding ourselves in a situation now. Where we legitimately appear to be having a need for them ourselves in developing countries, she says. International monitors have been instrumental in shoring up public confidence in elections, but Kelly says they may not have that effect this time. I am skeptical. That they will have any impact. In the United States specifically in this election. Not because they don't have the potential to do so but because they won't be given the opportunity to do so. The day after the election, the S C E team will hold a press conference to talk about their initial findings afterward. As usual, they're prepared to stay to monitor the counting of ballots and whatever court process and they play out to decide the election. Roughly two months later, they'll issue a final report with recommendations for what could have been done better
Pavelski Ties Game in 3rd, Stars fall in Game 4 in OT
"The net. And what point I think everyone was surprised The puck came to appoint a Lord Duck behind that point was wide open in front. And he put that it's too too. You know, this was a gutsy when in a lot of ways, the adversity this team faced during this game, he figure Look, Dallas goes up to nothing. Klingberg and Pavelski and you're thinking, all right. This isn't going away. Tampa Bay anticipate then Brayden point. It's a goal late. In that first period, then he gets another one in the second early on too tight. It's too on the power play. Corey Perry made it three to Gord tied it up 33. Killorn in the third period throws one at the Net. Beautiful shot at 6 41 layer up 43 You're feeling all right? This is it. Here we go. But then Pavelski gets that golden 11 35. Fortuitous bounce makes it for four. But then you get into this situation where you had braid and points get called for an embellishment along with Perry. You go for on four and then 37 seconds into the overtime. Dallas goes on the power play. It's four on three and they had some dangerous looks. But you know, Jamie Benn Does have some bad timing when it comes to penalties throughout his career and lighting made him pay for that it's Kevin Shattenkirk getting the goal from headmen marooned at 6 34. To get the power play goal there and the lightning or three for four on the power play. We're gonna get some players some, but can I want to get your thoughts and just how this game transpire if I thought, you know a lot of highs and lows and With lightning with their star power and they're scoring ability. You never felt like they were completely out of this game and I just I really impressed with their win tonight. I am to it. I'm impressed. I really think braiding points goal when the lightning fell down early was huge, and you could just see it the confidence that he's playing with the emotion. After some of those goals. I mean, they realized you could see they're so close to the ultimate goal and they're stopping at nothing to get there, and that's evident in their play on the ice, and I thought Dallas put forth a really good performance tonight and it really could have been anyone's game in the end. But once again, it's the special teams battle. And although I thought Dallas certainly cut back on some of the undisciplined penalties, they were not able to get their penalty kill, crush them. The Lightning went three for four on the power play, and you know they had every opportunity in the overtime. With the man advantage to get it done, and it's the lightning who keeps finding ways to come from behind and win. So it's not always gonna be pretty. But I think each player even looking at Janni gored again. You're just seeing different guy. Step up and, you know, play those tough minutes and I thought the lightning you know Michigan and Phil Esposito had said. I thought they did carry playfor more stretches. And although Dallas had their moments on, they surged at times, Vasilevskiy came in the end with a couple big pad saves. And unfortunately huge open couldn't quite make the timely wants to keep his team there. And you know when they when they had the chance to help him out and get a power play goal, they didn't do it either. Now again, let's go to
Amy Coney Barrett 'to be picked by Trump for Supreme Court'
"Donald Trump will be announcing his supreme court pick on. Saturday which means that he already knows that the individualism according to sources close to Donald trump his selection will be judge Amy Coney Barrett Their York Times makes a point to mention that she would be the least experienced supreme court nominee however she is a favorite among conservative politicians and conservative voters because of her Christian background but also more importantly and I think this gets left out in a lot of the analysis in the media. She also would immediately invalidate the affordable care act she's on the record. Saying that whereas you know the thing that people seem to be more focused on right now is Roe v Wade which you know obviously I don't WanNa be naive and just assume that she won't touch Roe v Wade but she is on the record saying that she believes in the precedent when it comes to reproductive rights even though she as a devout Catholic disagrees with abortion and all of that but Emma I wanted to get your thoughts. We're talking about this a little bit during the break talk a little bit about what this means for the affordable care, act? Certainly. So that's my concern too. I mean we're both women. We obviously have concerns about our reproductive health but I think there is a hesitance in terms of justices overturning that precedent because of the ripple effects and how massive and that it would be I feel like it's just more of a political talking point for Conservative politicians to score points than it is a judicial reality. That's the only thing saving us here. What should concern everybody is that she's forty eight years old she has a history of pro-corporate positions that side with the with the employer against employee etc I believe and she's sided against. I'm reading some of it here. Things in gun rights she descended in a decision that would disarm felons for example, after they came out of prison, she's pretty extreme when it comes to those issues but for the affordable care. Act's guys if it's six to three if she gets through and it's that solidly conservative, they're going to do away with the affordable care act and then that's a conservative basically supermajority for decades at that point say ideally, we got the Progressive President in twenty twenty four who wants to put Medicare for all through. That's dumb. That's what concerns me most about these decisions are yes. The Supreme Court's been pro-corporate for a very long time for the Romney says, we're a center right country and the courts been leftist for awhile talk to him about Bush. Gore in citizens united whatever. But but but yeah, that's what scares me the most about. This is the complete mixing of any legislation that comes through that could be progressive. That's appealed Conservatives Appeal Appeal Appeal go the Supreme Court and they know. It's just going to be overturned. INCORPORATIONS can have a field day in big Pharma will be doing great. Yeah I am definitely worried about this. You know representative Ro. Khanna introduced a bill that would limit the. Time Supreme Court justice could serve on the Supreme Court to eighteen years. I don't know where that piece of legislation is GonNa go but I I do think that it's important that you mentioned her age as you just did and how. Her influence on the court will have a lasting ramifications on on this country really and yeah, the pro-corporate angle is something that just seems to get lost in the fray lost in the analysis and I'm glad that we're talking about it in a story that will cover later donald trump signed more ridiculous phony executive orders alleging that he's protecting people with preexisting conditions. The truth is those executive orders constitutionally speaking have no teeth but what it does is it messages to his voters that don't worry don't don't be frightened of the repeal of the affordable care act because signed executive orders. They're not going to do anything, but you know it's just enough to cover his ass while also simultaneously causing great harm to honestly all Americans because anything could be considered a pre existing condition. If you tested positive for cove it, that's considered a pre existing condition. So this is going to have. A damaging effect on so many people in this country I wanna read a quote from from this piece in the New, York? Times it's by Aaron. Who's president for the old Alliance for Justice a liberal group. She says, Amy Coney Barrett Meets Donald Trump's to litmus tests. She has made clear that she would invalidate the affordable care act and take healthcare away for millions of people and undermine. A woman's reproductive freedom. Again, I'm not entirely sure that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe V. Wade I know that there's a lot of fear about that. I understand that fear a lot of my fear again has to do with You know corporate shoes that make it to the Supreme Court and what is very likely to happen to the affordable care act at this point and remember the Supreme Court did strike. The healthcare mandate, that's an important part of the affordable care act. That's what kept premiums low, and you know when they undid that, of course, premiums immediately shot up and so we'll see how this all plays out, but it is pretty terrifying.

TikTok: Oracle confirms being picked by Bytedance to be app's partner
"So the story is that Oracle edged out Microsoft in negotiating for the US operations of China owned tiktok, which is the subsidiary of fight dance. But professor you explain to us exactly what kind of a quote unquote deal this is. remained slightly unclear how Nicole partnership is GONNA be with all recording Tiktok what has been clear right now is Microsoft historically all over the past few days when thinking about acquiring talk and make say for us user and possibly they need to open the Al Gore Software Code and make it much more transparent going forward and in the end is dance to own of Tiktok say no to Microsoft and you know way that the panicle partnerships probably. Keep, paying what alcohol? I'll go behind stay intact and trying to appease to government at the same time. So, professor what was the political? Overhang of this deal or the political influence of this deal from your perspective. I mean, this is a big major development in the sense that for the first time Guffman are really adding on acting on an ad hoc basis. So starting from the trump administration, all of these executive orders, there was no industry consultation. There is no independent inquiry, per se and then after all the Chinese. Guffman, at the same time, we're basically saying you know by dance, you cannot export any software code in the name off you know national security I'm the ramifications, the following that businesses find it really really difficult going forward to plan ahead WHAT IS LONGTIME R&D or product sales and marketing given all of these becomes much more of an ad hoc basis. In, your estimation is oracle the right kind of company to be doing this. In, the world is kind of strange because if you think of all records historically really be to become Canadian sales database services, it doesn't really have a large B. Two C. market as a result of know how they have would be audibly much less than Microsoft ways running xboxes or these game, and of course, the to see market is huge and sort. Of the technical ability around is also amazing to however have you thinking about Tiktok probably one of the biggest worry is one's a gone through. You potentially go through with they completely lose their independence from that angle and Oracle potentially becomes much more attractive than smaller than know how round to market is much less and quite frankly they are not very strong imbuing. So from that angle, it's not surprising that tiktok would actually prefer a week up partner in this case Oracle.
Intention, Action and Result
"So it's pretty easy to think about our goal setting processes are planning processes. In terms of what we want. As a result and. We can back our way into what kinds of actions could we take or what kinds of kind of. Proof. Would we need to have that that result has been met? And once again, this is kind of the basis of the okay are planning process. But that's not all there is to this discussion. How do we evaluate our actions? When we are actually living out that future and we were trying to plan for. So meticulously, how can we evaluate in an ongoing basis? The actions that we're taking, we can break these down. Okay. Break our actions down because our actions are not as simple as just doing something. There's three parts that I wanNA talk about of course, this is just one model of thinking about action. The these three parts of reasonable. The first is the actual activity. This is the whatever the physical thing is that you're doing. the. The movements, they her making right the the real thing that you're doing in the world. That's the action. But before that is the intention. What is the intention of that action? And this is much more complicated than it might seem. Because you may have a stated intention. Or you may have an unstated intention. Or you might have some kind of chained intentions. you can ask yourself why is it that I am getting up? So early in the morning against my you know better hopes for comfort and laying in bed longer why am I waking up early and putting my tennis shoes on and going out for a run? Why would I subject myself to that kind of pain? Well. I because I want to be healthy. Right, that's that's what I wanted to do. Why do I want to be healthy because being healthy provides me with Potentially, a a higher quality life in other areas maybe you know more longevity more healthy years where I'm not dealing with any disease and so running is going to hopefully provide me with those things. But it's possible that you start. With your stated intention of. I want to run this morning to meet my goal of running every day. And these are two different concepts. One is an intention that is directly met by some measurable thing in the other one is an intention that is. A more abstract idea. If you meet your. You know weekly goal or whatever it is of running what happens then? Well it contributes to your health, right it contributes to better health, and so you can think about all of these things in terms of layers of abstraction on on your intentions. And the thing that a lot of people miss about this is that actions do not always follow. Perfectly. Your. Best intentions. Conventional Wisdom tells us that our best laid plans often go out the window at the first sign of anything that goes wrong. and. So if our plans our intentions are. not necessarily going to be followed by action than the intentions end up being. Essentially irrelevant. But even if we do take action based on our intentions. They can still become irrelevant because there's a third part and that's what comes after the action. Our intention may be clear and our action may be clear. We may believe that are particular action is going to carry us towards our intention. But then For one reason or another, it doesn't. The result is the third part. Seems really obvious the action. is in the middle sandwiched in the middle of the intention and the result. So it's possible that Gore intention is to become healthier and so you run every morning and unfortunately the unexpected results. Is that because you ran, you know too much or maybe you ran too often early. You, took on more. Stress Than your body could hindle, you injure yourself and thus you'll meet your goal rain It's kind of going the opposite direction in fact of what your intention was a here's the really important lesson I want you to take away from this episode. We, need to recognize. That what we care about the most. Is the through line. Of these three things. We care more about the intention being followed all the way through. To the result. Whatever the action is in the middle. Is only relevant. If, it carries us from intention to result. Of course, this is a model of thinking. There are certain types of actions that have multiple benefits beyond just trying to mechanistically achieve a particular. Right. There are certainly extraneous reasons why you might choose one action over another this model. Is Not, necessarily about and of that meditative process of just allowing yourself to. Be In that moment of the action and instead being focused on the through line of your intention to the result. But it still provides a framework for thinking around what actions might be valuable if my goal. If my goal is alternately the intention I have set out to accomplish,
Death by Lightning is Common for Tropic Trees
"The chance that a human being like you will be struck by lightning miniscule. But what if you're a tall tree in the tropics lightning happens in milliseconds, we can't predict where it's going to be and we generally can't find it after it's happened. So what a hard thing to study Evan Gora an ecologist at the University of Louisville now for the first. Time Goran and his colleagues were able to quantify the effects of lightning strikes in tropical forests around the world. Thanks to satellite data and a network of ground sensors. We saw the force that have more lightning strikes hitting hector per year have fewer large trees practice presumably because they're killed by lightening more biomass turns over years. So basically, the lightning seems to. Be Affecting the forest in causing trees to die, and then they have less total biomass in a ground survey Panama. The researchers found that a single lightening strike typically damages more than twenty trees and within a year five or six of them die the scientists combined this figure with their satellite data from around the world estimate. How many trees in tropical forests Die Each year due to lightning. We think around eight hundred and thirty million trees are struck by lightning at about a quarter of those around two hundred million are killed. So that's a lot and as I mentioned before we know that it's not just a random train, the force typically, it's the largest trees. The study is in the journal Global Change Biology. Gora says the findings revealed that lightning is one of the most important natural factors killing trees in the tropics. How climate change will affect lightning patterns is not well understood but some models predict more frequent lightening as the planet continues to warm, which could mean even more carbon storing trees would disappear chopping force basically function as our planet's. Main. Terrestrial. So. If decreasing the carbon stored in them, that's going to have a big effect on their ability to continue conditioning our planet and taking up all. That Carmen that producing Gore has work is just the beginning of this research. He hopes that future technological advances and fieldwork will help scientists better understand lightnings role in ecosystems across the planet the findings should be
Russian Tries to Hack Tesla
"Almost A. state-sponsored spy story we have something that really happened. And I tease this by quoting our friend Marcus hutchins twitter reaction upon learning of it just to remind everyone marcus is the well known security researcher and reformed cybercrime hacker. You know he actually reformed in his teenage years, but the FBI didn't forgive him for that and of course, as we know his future became uncertain when the FBI grabbed him. In Las Vegas is Logan Airport as he was departing or a preparing to depart for from the US for his home in the UK, following the annual black hat and DEFCON conferences. Well last Thursday. Reacting on twitter to the news of this story which had just broken marcus quite correctly observed he tweeted quote one of the benefits of cybercrime. Is Criminals don't have to expose themselves to unnecessary risk by conducting business in person. Flying into the US Jewish diction to have mel wear manually installed on a company's network is absolutely insane. Unquote. Okay. So what was all that about? A TWENTY-SEVEN-YEAR-OLD RUSSIAN NATIONAL By the name of or. Igla, rich. Crutch. Nikolov. Traveled to the US an attempted to subvert and bribe an employee working at Tesla corporations massive Nevada based gigafactory. Eager. Ultimately agreed to pay the employees one million dollars to plant malware inside Tesla's. Internal Network. The. Good news is the employees reported the offer. To his employer Tesla and then worked with the FBI to build an airtight case and to set up a sting which included having him covertly record face to face meetings. Discussing this, Russian the twenty-seven-year-old Russians proposal in their complaint which followed Egos, arrest and arraignment wit last Tuesday the prosecutors wrote. The purpose of the conspiracy was to recruit an employee of a company to Syrup Tissue, transmit malware provided by the CO conspirators into the company's computer system. EXFILTRATION data from the company's network and threatened to disclose the data online unless the company paid the CO conspirators ransom demand. The complaint said that the malware would be custom developed. Propagate through the company's network. For it to work the group said, it needed the employees to provide information about the employers, network authorizations and network procedures. Correct correct Yakubov said, the malware would be transmitted either by inserting a usb drive into a company computer or clicking on an email attachment containing malware. Ebor explained the infecting computer would have to run continuously for six to eight hours for the malware to move fully through the network. To distract network personnel, a first stage of the malware would perform a denial of service attack while a second stage performed the data exfiltration. When the complaint was initially unsealed last Tuesday the identities of all parties was still confidential being identified only as company A, and C H s one which is their abbreviation for confidential human source number one that is the employees. But last Thursday Elon Musk confirmed that yes. Indeed it was his company that was the target of this whole operation. The charging document with was filed in federal court in Nevada detailed and extensive end determined attempt to infect. Tesla's network the defendant again twenty-seven-year-old Eager E- Gore Vich.

"gore" Discussed on Amicus with Dahlia Lithwick
"Think that I think that the court to stand up and be counted you know, are they four allowing people to vote or not, and and they should recognize that this is an unusual circumstance that has affected everybody and that is gonNA necessarily require changes to how people vote if you're going to protect the franchise. So Chris and I want to ask you the very last question and If I just ask you know Sam the lofty constitutional one that yours is just the nuts and bolts. How To folks plan I mean I know you've been saying I've heard you saying all spring like you just need a plan. You can't think of this for the first time on November. What do you tell listeners? You're you're doing the work in the trenches of of filing these suits and fighting what should individual voters be doing different this year what should the plan B.? And what are the resources they can look to if they don't have a plan right now So. First thing is making sure that you're registered to vote and everyone around you is registered to vote making sure that you're active your active status that you're getting all of the mailings from your local election official and you can do that by calling your local elections office. You can also do that by calling our election protection hotline and I'll close with that. But what we're really trying to get people to do is to not see. November third is election day, but to really view October as election month, this is the time where people should really be activating and making a plan for how they intend to vote. Do you want to vote absentee in your state? What are the rules and requirements where the timelines by which you've got a request your ballot went to return the ballot figure all that out is early voting available in your state and when will making plan. For when you're going to go out and safely and securely cast your ballot during early voting, and if you're somebody who's been away to vote on election day well, that's fine too. You know where your polling site is because there have been a lot of GE's a lot of polling site consolidations it a couple of city is actually plans to use sporting arenas for voting, which is kind of neat, but it means that people need to. Do some work in advanced to just know what the game plan should look like on election day and at the Lawyers Committee for civil rights under law, we run a program called election protection. It's the nation's largest and longest running nonpartisan voter protection program anchored by the eight, six, six, our hotline, eight, six, six, our vote we encourage people to plug that into their speed dial lasted out to their networks we are working every single day. To help people overcome the barriers safe base were fighting voter suppression were answering questions about absentee voting you name it. Our goal is to make sure that everyone has voice in our democracy and the program came about in the wake of Bush Gore? Came Abou- When we realized there are a lot of breaks in the system and we need a non-partisan space where people can bring forth complaints and get access to accurate nonpartisan information. You know here we are in a season where I think again, rings true. We need a non-partisan space where the public can just find out. Okay. What can I do to vote? There's this pitched battle going on between. I just WanNa know honestly what do I need to do both in? That's what we do every day through the eight, hundred, six, our vote hotline. Sam Do you have anything to add in terms of again. I know you're watching what's unfolding in Michigan, but in any thoughts on how people can sort of. Just do the nitty gritty work of getting their vote counted. I would I would just endorse everything kristen just said I the idea of not an election day but in the election month and voters early in the month as possible I also think for those people. Who are comfortable doing it volunteering to work as poll workers is going to be really important on there are as Kristen said, going to be socially distance polling places. You know often using stadiums and sports arenas as polling places but we know a lot of people are still gonNA show up vote in person and and we need to make sure that those people don't have to wait in lines forever and so if there are folks who hand and feel comfortable with volunteering to work as poll workers to enable that process to happen I, think that's super important as well. Kristen Clark is president and Executive Director for the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Professor Sam. Bag. Is, the Frank G Millard professor of law who specializes in constitutional and Civil Rights Litigation at Michigan to both of you. Thank you so very, very much i. wish you good health and we thank you so much for your time for having made so much you too..
Trump calls for drug tests before Biden debate
"The president trump has spoken to the Washington Examiner yesterday in the Oval Office and he saying that he would like Joe Biden and himself to take drug tests before the debates begin next month. And they asked him why do you think that Joe Biden might be on drugs INCAS, listen I I'm pretty good at this stuff. He says that Joe Biden performed very well during the debate against Bernie Sanders and he said there's just no way. He can pull it together that quickly let's bless you. Nice little sticky. Your. Trump says he takes one aspirin a day, but he would like drug tests. The V. Before the debate start I think it's at the end of next month and to September Well, you know what he's doing, right? No he saying Yawkey accused me of so much stuff out of nowhere. This. Just so ridiculous even even trying to get me out of office with impeachment and all these things that were made up none of it ever. True. I'm. GonNa Start Making up some stuff on you I'm just going to start coming up with things out of the blue. To throw a show, see what it's like. He did have an interesting about the debate. He said, well, it's a prize fight. It's no different from gladiators except we have to use our brain and our mouth and our body to stand I want all standing. They want to sit down which I thought was an interesting thing. I WANNA be standing during the debate. They won't have chairs so I duNNo. A lot of posturing at this but the part of that is strength. Of, strength. vice. President Cheney has major major heart problems. So when he was in the vice presidential debates when it was he and Bush were the the team. He had to sit down for his because of his heart condition and that was part of the agreement with that. But if you're not, if you're not having, you know if you don't have any kind of health condition that would prevent you from stain I thought they would do. You remember or not but. I thought they would do several debates in several different ways like one would be standing. One would be sitting would be a town hall kind of setting the way I, remember there there are stools and when it was your turn to speak, you would stand and or and so that with the other person was speaking, you'd go back and sit on your stool. Then when it was your time, you would stand and. Come forward to speak to the people in the room that was one of Hillary Clinton's big complaints about one of those debates where they had the stools in a town hall setting and instead of when he was done, he wouldn't go sit back in his chair he kinda stand eight feet or so behind her and just kind of pace back and forth and she said she felt at ver as like it was. What do you call that? He was talking her coming like he was stalking her and trying to be you know what that's called that's called Gamesmanship. What people do he figured out? I'm not going I'm going to change this up. I'm GONNA throw her off her game by I'm not GONNA, sit? I'm going to stand. It's it's it's strategy. Yeah I. Remember when I remember this because I'm ninety one years old. But during the Bush Al Gore debate when they were doing the townhall went on the stools and Bush, was answering a question that was asked to him and Al Gore. Walk Right and got in his face. And he stopped and looked at him like Hey. Buddy. And then just went on with the stuff was a great. You know you've got a good laugh out of it. I mean he taxes he's privacy going. Hey if you get on my space yeah, I, remember that because it was a big deal that. Gore tried to intimidate him in Bush just kind of made everybody laughed in Gore had to step back and then it. A mistake that Al Gore may again, they do all kinds of that little strategy game what they say when they shake hands, what do they say because a lot of times people will say something to kind of make you reek wha, what did that mean rise to make you think before you start but in the the the Romney Campaign Against Obama that vice presidential debate biden wipe the floor. With the what's his name? The Republican? He was the speaker of the House and he he's a Paul Ryan. All Ryan. Yeah he's a he's a fake. Yeah. Fake conservative. And Yeah Biden. whipped him in the debate. Yes. So he's he's not a bad debater if he's if he's Going on his own. So the strategy begins now I guess, of course,
How to Manage Cash Flow Through Uncertainty
"Well as your company grows or looks to save money especially people expenses. It's always good to look at the best tools and process run your business. The right tools and processes can help you either scale, your business, or running more profitably hit help and Tony Ward with the President of zero for the Americas. He has twenty years of experience in senior leadership positions with global technology companies including Microsoft Australia linked in spark, serving monkey and dropbox Tony Welcome to the show. Bearing talking. So first of all, tell me how you doing doing this pandemic you and your family. Yeah, it's actually we moved here from Australia in January? So my twelve year old my wife Celts in. I would say, pretty easily the worst time deposits. Hundred Years So. One Thousand Nine Hundred Eighteen Exactly, it's all upside from your very I would agree with that. Well, a lot of small business owners right now are trying to figure out how they can more effectively run their business with better prices with cost-saving apps where do you start? On The first thing I would say is that cloud technology I think has been we'll be seemed to be a real. Savior for a lot of businesses particularly through coded and. I give you an example I think everything from the front end of Your Business. So you know looking appointments things like timely. I can see a of people using figuring out new ways to market their business like your facebook and Google. In fact, if you'll get facebook's recent results that added a million new advertisers, a lot of those are going to be small businesses trying to figure out how to get more people in the door and then things like zero put back. Then to figure out what is actually going with your business and I know everyone is all talks about Cash is king and casual super important. But when you have a shoebox little receipts, it's very difficult to figure out what's happening with cash flow. So and I, kind of you don't running out of cash is almost like. An Iceberg and the sooner you could see coming the sooner you can potentially avoid it and so things like that. Help you do that are really really important always. But in this time, even more important to figure out what's going on your business and just automate as much as you possibly can to free free up your time to work on the business versus in business I think too many small businesses. Honesty that they're gonNA try diy everything and there are certain pieces of software that you can use action at free up to do things in your business. So Tony and your point of view where you actually start because I always say that you can't do everything at one time. What's really the tip of the spear? We'll the first thing that I would do, and this is a really interesting stat when you compare the US versus other markets that were unlike strapping young candidate UK in the US around thirty only thirty percent of small businesses have an accountant or bookkeeper. It's very much a diy mentality and what I would say to people is look we we get personal trainers we get coaching all the time and our daily lives. Yes. Seventy presenting small businesses don't have a coach don't have someone to go to and really talk about their business. And when you think about it, it's a lot of small businesses of debt their house on their business yet they don't necessarily see the value or having thought about getting our coach. So I would say getting a calendar bookkeeper, get a businesses visor it's going to be the best money era we're GONNA stand. So let me ask you a question about that. Why don't people do that? Because I agree with you so many people have no idea what's financially going their business why don't they take that step? Is it that they don't think they need it or they don't want to know what's really going on. Inching. Research over the last six months in their research. It's something to do the pioneering spirit of America where people believe I can do myself do it yourself and what we're trying to say, we tried to move people from Diy d I t do it together and so our research shows us that if A small business ties zero, and they're using an accountant bookkeeper, their survival rates, Shuki sixty percent higher over five years so. Logically. You think I should do that I think part of it is people get so passionate about their dream of writing because they just get into it and usually take some sort of compelling events tax issues or whatever, and when the most secret lies are I would think you know. Clan up from what you're GONNA do and you're probably enemy our data shows you can be more successful Malaga. So that's the first thing I do. Then you're kind of bookkeepers probably GONNA look how you're running your business and and work out with software like zero and others where you making money where you're losing money record to save money. You know and right now what you should be doing is you know renegotiating with your landlord if you can't if you have physical space figuring out of their other avenues, other ways, you can actually get your product to market that maybe aren't a traditional retail sense. So you seeing things like shop with Wind Amazon just explode 'cause you know businesses are trying to figure out how can I sell more product or service in the virtual world because physical world is so challenge that Obama. Tony I wonder if these are the same people that don't balance their checkbook. I don't have the date on that, but you'd argue, yes, I think that's probably true. You know what? They say the penny look after the pennies. The dog themselves. So yeah to it's probably reasonable. It's because we're not really taught these kind of financial concepts in school. Actually it's hard to understand what the profit and loss statement says. The balance sheet says the cash flow statement says and many times there with the wrong accountant that really doesn't take time to explain to them. So they kind of keep their distance from this stuff. I think it's been a chicken and egg I think a lot of our accounts into the paper is there really they want to get into advisory services? That's all they see the growth and Really are passionate about the small businesses that they look after. Talking to some of our Council peepers, curious cove experience, they're really struggling because they're talking to small businesses who are potentially business potentially losing her house. So I think small accountants want to do this, but they kind of need to be invited into the Party needs created a couple of products lately to try to help on accounts to give a reason to actually have that conversation. So something called the business sack shot thirty castles state and our new. Features inside zero where you can literally see in real time what's going on in your business and the thirty day cash will actually give you some insights as the white new should do Ingram plain English for a small business like collect these bills. Hey, this you're gonNA run into cash unless you collect these deals unless you delayed payment of these other bills so. And one thing zero does really really. Well as we we talk in Layman's terms. I think about my Mama's a hairdresser right Sheila Ramos along for twenty five years. She didn't get a peer now or anything like that. Say we use terms like money owed money owing inside zero because like okay I kind of that because I get money all money that's oats me I don't really get profit and loss credits and debits into council I think. Financial Literacy to your point area in small business is is not great because people just want my mum's London runner hairdressing Salon. She didn't WanNa do the books and I think making it easier for people to run their business and having software advisers that that do the boring accounting stuff is really critical to successively small. Wanted to brag about financial literacy because when I sold my last business in one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine told this toward many times before I lost a million dollars off the sale of the company because I send my balance sheet nine MBA for northwestern university. So that's nothing to be proud of. It's it's really really challenging running a small business. You brand businesses I've had small businesses you spend so much of your time and effort certainly some people think are GonNa start a cafe a lifestyle. It's a lifestyle business. Alright sixty seventy, eighty hours. It's it's really really challenging. So anything that software due. To free up some your time to have more time with your family or to grow your businesses is really what we're trying to achieve. This idea of the three day cash flow because again, every business goes out of business. The exact same reason they run out of money and during the recession cash definitely slows down what suggestions would you have for small business owners for managing their cash flow during this period of time. The first thing I would do I would be really really hard core on any money that's actually ot you to collect that to be the squeaky wheel because a squeaky wheel gets the oil in this where we are right now there's a lot of money owed and certainly there are the ones that are actually really persists. are the ones that are going to get it. I'm I would be as I said before I be trying to renegotiate any kind of a large expenses that I have either get more favorable terms or reduction in order to protect your cash flow and then I would be thinking really creatively how I could get on routes to market for my product or service. So if I could I sell more online, there's really creative things that people are doing like I was talking to somebody today who they got a haircut for the first time in you know since March since the lockdown started. Your hairdresser had a physical salon. She wasn't able to have people in anymore. So she was literally going to people's houses and she said now that she probably wasn't going to reopen her physical business that this is really going to be the future of her business and then she was selling product, which you know is generally high margin she had that on. A website where she was promoting products and All the same time. I think you're gonNA see more and more of that sort of creativity. My Wife's still you know getting a personal trainer she's doing it over soon call right so she's not physically going to see this personal trainer personal trainers still making money, but they're doing it over in know a virtual environment versus a physical environment. It's really amazing because there are things that we're doing now that we never thought could be done remotely like my wife again, it's teaching Yoga classes remotely and I'm taking karate class remotely. It's really quite amazing what you can get used to. Yeah I just think it's the Sunders. Certain the research that we have is they're growing they're actually seeing this as as an opportunity and you know there are other business I really feel for you know Pasta Taliban businesses retell the that are doing it really really tough with someone are figuring out new channels new ways to do. So for sure there's GonNa be winners and losers. Like. There isn't every single economic downturn. Feel like it's kind of like a game of musical chairs things are going well in the economy. Excuse me. Things are going well in the economy and all of a sudden the music stops you don't know if you're gonNA have a chair. Yeah and I think you know the really smart service savvy entrepreneurs out. There are going to figure out ways to be successful, and there's going to be just like integrates recession. This is going to be a whole bunch of starting the kind of the hypothesis that we haggas. Particularly millennials every Neil you talked to, you seems to have some side side-hustle right and what's happening is is a lot of people are losing their their jobs, their side hustles becoming their main hustle. So you're gonNA see a whole bunch of new businesses come out of this, and some of them will be really successful on some will some won't make it, but you're definitely seeing green shoots in new businesses starting out. When should people actually choose zero? Of course the elephant in the room is always quickbooks. Why do people choose zero over quick? Book Solutions. I think one of the main reasons they choose it is very easy to use. It's very simple. It's very non accounting language. It was you know we created the category of small business cloud accounting. So we we don't have a desktop business we've always just had a class business so. It's it's built for the cloud doesn't it's not coming from the desktop and moving to the cloud. So I think ease of use. And just. Talked about being Hashtag. Beautiful. It's really nice piece of software to use very intuitive. and. One of the things I find that small business owners make as far as mistake is they don't set up a separate accounting system for their business. They just do it as an extension of their personal accounting system, which really is a problem. Yeah sickly sole-traders when they start out a lot of rooms are mixed kind of discolored business and pleasure or their personal encounter banking account. I would say that that is you know five starting a business. The first thing I do is I would set up a business bank account right and I would basically get some sort of accounting software whether it's you know zero or what have you I would look for the line of business software that is kind of the market leader in the category that I in. So you know in construction, they'd be Pro Gore finding you know running a hair salon. Be Timely find getting all my kind of soft were sorted out, and then I would find a really great accountable infect around flights ten percent of our accountable keeper channel. The people that are zero advisers are almost acting like managed service providers were there. Basically providing a stack of software plus advisory services to small businesses for a monthly fee. So the small business doesn't need to worry about. Well, what should I choose choose? Their their adviser is basically saying if you're in this particular industry, this is the the bundle of software that you need to run your business and all manage it all, and I'll help you with coaching. You run your business and I want everyone to hear what Tony is saying because to many times we don't spend any time setting up the infrastructure for our company and that's really easy these days with these cloud. APPS Tony. It's interesting. You know long time ago when Islands University announced doing. It. Guidance was eighty percent of your time. You're doing it should be planning twenty percent doing and I don't think that's much different for business I think, generally some small. Rush out and getting to it, and they don't think about the planning side of it. But if you don't build the foundations thinking about building a house with the foundation isn't rock-solid. You know, how are you going to build that twenty story building? If you have aspirations to grow your business, you gotta get the foundations down. You GotTa get a coach just set it up right from the start in your our research shows you're going to drastically improve your chances of being successful. We'll Tony I appreciate you joining the show where can people get more information about and that's spelled x. e zero? Zero DOT COM and check it out. There's you can get on there for a free trial and. I hope everyone loves it up everyone stay safe I. Hope all the small businesses out there. I know you're doing itself. We're here to help. Just, take care good life and. Hope you're joining continues to grow.
Supreme Court Allows Rhode Island To Make Voting By Mail Easier Amid Pandemic
"In a legal fight between Rhode Island and the Republican National Committee over whether the state can allow Since the vote by mail without having to witnesses or a notary observed them. The state had argued to suspend the witness requirement because of the pandemic in the court argued that the requirements were not opposed by state officials, and that they maintain the status quo. Given that similar rules were used in June, legal analyst Jonathan Turley says this may be an indication of what's to come. This in many ways is the residual effect of the Bush v. Gore decision. The Supreme Court suffered greatly in the view of Public when it effectively determined the election in 2000. There's an obvious reluctance of the majority of the cord to be dragged into another electoral fight. The order was unsigned. Justices Clarence Thomas Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch said they would have granted Republicans request to keep the witness requirements in effect, some major news from the

"It was a ah, along one, no doubt, but it's always better when your team wins and the Lightning did that in five overtimes 32 over Columbus Game one of this best of seven braid in points with the game winner in the fifth overtime. And that is how the game would end. Just simply gets the puck throws it on nets. Good shot. Good things happen when you put the puck on that. How about Korpisalo? By the way, folks stopped 85 Of 88 shots. That's a record in the 9 66 save percentage. Vasilevskiy had a 9 68 safe percentages. He stopped 61 of 63 shots. It's always fun to look at the total ice time for some individual players, Victor Hedman, talking about that lower body injury, 57 minutes and 38 seconds. He played on the back and had nine shots. On gold when you take a look at the forward position. For the Lightning. Brayden point played 47 minutes course. The two goals I said he had nine shots on goal.

Interview with Thriller Writer Andrew Allan - burst 1
"Hi. Everyone may guest is the author of the wall Asher Thriller series you also right to grind house hulk. We've gotten talked about. He is an infomercial writer and director is also into wild cope movies making them I believe. And runs a website called daily. Grind House Dot. com I guess today's Andrew. Allan. Hi Andrew. Thanks for being here. It's Sure thing I love your resume I mean you're you're by it was fascinating to me because I love sill as well as books I assumed that you were infomerrcial rendered director before you started writing books. Yes. Yeah I, my career is little bit weird in the sense that I went to film school and then I, broke two commercials while I was working on developing movies and I ended up getting a job at the home shopping network, which is based here in Saint Pete Florida and. It's bizarre. Everyone presumes it is, but it was really great experience and I learned how to do a lot of things including sell on TV and that often into doing infomercials, which is selling on TV so and I have to say I love it as ridiculous as it sounds I it's great profession. Sounds. Really cool actually. What made you decide to do infomercials and what prompted you to start writing books? Money prompted me to start doing infomercials. Is You know we all need it. We all like it. But three Oris was. Like I said, I. Learned to basically sell on television when as at. and. That is a natural transition into infomercials and when I decided Lake Age San. I knew I wanted to make my writing or sorry make my living still riding in. If, directing producing commercials. In what was great about infomercials was at a Niche. So instead of just saying, Hey, I'M A. Commercial writer and there's ten thousand other people are competing with. I said been infomercial right better and maybe ten people on meeting with. So now I can like authentically say one of the top it from our show writers world and I've got a ton of experience done thousands of commercials in the ask aid and all that sort of stuff so. It's great and that's how that came to be the reason I started writing books. was because I I remember reasons when I was creatively frustrated had been making movies had been writing screenplays in. which were fun and some of them got made some of them did. But all of them required collaboration and I had reached a point where I didn't really want to collaborate anymore. At least for a while, I needed a break. And that's even on projects that I absolutely loved movie that was aching with my best friend and. Even then like we would get into arguments and about I just needed a break from that. So I wanted to do something on my own and that's when I decided to write a book had a story. Kind of kicking around that I'd never been able to turn into a script. I finally figured out how to make that work in book form, which was the first of Asher took and. Took it from there, the other the other part of that story is. I was actually reading a book by. A very famous author that we all know who I'm not GONNA name and Not to sound Eric and I thought it was terrible house like a weight. and. I actually caught myself saying I could do better. And? You know a very arrogant thing to save for someone who's never. But I decided to see if I could back up. And I think I did. unbelie speaking I didn't think I was right. Funny because a lot of writers actually do start offers those kinds of thoughts I do this. Anyway it wasn't even looking down at the writing it was in fact. The looking at the idea of being writer was more like this story is not entertaining be and. I know enough about story structure from screen plays and things like that. where I could look at this and say, really was about me thinking this guy should be doing a lot better for albig their name is and how much money. Yeah. You points for originality on coming up with a protagonist is infomercial writer. Director. But I see that you've drawn from your own background or at least I assume you have. Tell US little about wall. Ask How is it? He gets into the kinds of situations that would lead to thriller. Series. What I had to figure out. As. He is comes from my background. I did go down the road of right now and that's because. As confident as I was writing commercials in his confident as was writing movies I had no confidence whatsoever writing a book so I figured I ought to. Rely on everything that I could get off the so. And then plus the idea. Of Him being an infamous rider was intriguing. You know. I. Like all of us had written read million books about cops and lawyers and soldiers, detectives and reporters. That's great. People are probably doing it better than me. So let me try something completely different. And I worked at it worked because I think wall what I like about wall. What I like about these books is that he has to rely persuasion to kind of get by doesn't mean he's not physical. There's a lot of action in the books and But. But he is a true amateur sleuth who has nothing to do with. Justice and basically starts out he lives on the Rainbow River, which is a real. River Donnellan Florida about two hours north where I. In he's he's in the river because data's friend's house by the water and finds his friend dead on the Bank of the river. With an alligator in the process of Jim up. But it's clear that the alligator did not kill him so. One thing leads to another and the villain in the story overplays its hand. And attempts to kill. Walt. And it becomes very clear that he has to do. Something a balance it's no. A- paranoid. It's legitimate in in the Diet figuring out. took. Let's see you also, right. Does poke at the series also correct. Those books like you fun. Grind House. I I. Guess. Okay so Basically the Grind House was forty second street movie theaters in the Sixties Seventies in eight Times Square. And They Kinda just show like all the really gross horror movies the karate movies, all kinds of stuff you know movies that were generally looked down upon, but also provided extremely visceral thrill. And I love those movies I think they're A. A love cult movies, and so my grind house pulse series is basically me coming up with ideas for grind house movies, it putting them at goes. It's different than like the wall Asher stuff is war. Thriller Mystery Thriller Suspense Ryan How's Paul is pushed things over the edge a little bit more. you know there's more violence and there's You know just like you'd see in those insane movies and they're really they're. Their books of movies I would love to see. Yeah Yeah. You. Should check public domain deserves some really crazy things that you probably already know that. That's for sure. Oh my gosh. If you receive Nanos hands a fate. Badly. I had yes. Oh my God. That's all say about that. There's some movies that are just so bad. You have to see them. That's one of them. Well, that's a little part of my resume I produced Herschell, Gordon Lewis's last movie. Own Donahue Herschel is he's the guy. He was the first guy to put Gore in a move back nine hundred and sixty three in the movie blood feast. and He did other movies like wizard of Gore or girls and two thousand maniacs. E, Kinda started it all and he was. Low budget exploitation filmmaker and I had the great fortune of. Meeting him in basically getting to produce a movie for one of my heroes. While that's fantastic. That's wonderful To get back to Walt. Is there an overall story ARC in series? So the first book was really just a test to see if I write a book. Well and that feeling. Of. Really sort of rabbit story. There was a slight. Subtle hints. To where it could go beyond that story. Then after I thought about it and I liked the process and I thought the book went well and I didn't get demolished by reviews as like yeah I'll continue the so. As it exists now there's a three book. Arc. Where each is a complete story of their full length novels, but the villain is the same in the three of them. The Antagonists Casino tag is more of a secret organisation kind of thing than just one person specifically. So there's arc with that and then in between each novel. I, I wrote an Avella. And those are side stories, featuring walt and some of the same characters from the boat but not related to that big overarching story. So. Just kind of Nice it's sort of like a breather in between, but you still get to spend time with the characters. That's cool. Yeah. Most of those are. Rooted in the fact that. Waltz basically best friend up on the river where he lives. Dining digi who is actually a criminal biker. And he's into all kinds of criminal stuff but he's just Kinda like one of those Florida Good Ole boys who are fun to be around and for whatever reason he likes wall is completely not of his world. So in the NOVELLAS. Those. Tend to focus on D. G. Getting Wall to do something for digi in that usually on the danger things like that, and and that's what cell shock which giveaway book for this interview is one of those things. Lead. US
My Husband Wants to Separate Our Bank Accounts
"TIFFANY'S IN DALLAS. Hi tiffany. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Hi? How are you? Right? How can we help? I was calling because I I recently got married.

SHANECO excited initially but I guess maybe after a few months of the A we we had joint bank accounts and then he decided he wanted to have separate bank account and in that time and we have joint bank accounts we did pay off. credit card that we had differently and student loans, and so now the haven't had that conversation one or it was just kind of like. I'm not sure kind of like an abrupt decision. He had the conversation. He just went and did it. Why haven't you said? That's not okay. Well I I did and He just kind of implied that he didn't. WanNa have separate or he just said he didn't want to have separate account. He wanted to have separate accounts one.

And there's a lot of thrashing around going on at your house where he just jerk stuff away, and then you stand there looking like a deer in the headlights going what happened 'cause you were over here overspending or you're spending money and he couldn't control you or some kind of crap is going on here. I, don't know what it is, but I smell stink Something's not right. Somebody's hearts settled a year end with her cheers or his or both. But this is a giant red neon flashing light saying Danger Danger, and you've got address it soon in dress it with a good heart.

An are on the same page moving forward. It's out works.
Trump's tanking in the polls
"Anzalone, welcome to campaign HQ David Blah always good to hear your voice. Yeah, you and I met I back in Iowa back in the eighties, not to date ourselves, but the answer. Let me start with this. Let's talk about swing voters for minute. Obviously Joe Biden is doing. Incredibly well in public polls I'd assume he's also doing well in your own polling correct. Yeah I think that it's fair to say that. We're seeing a lot of what the public polls are showing that you know. This is in some ways I. Mean you've seen you've been through a lot of presidential campaigns, and as you said, we've been in this together for over thirty years, so we've seen a lot of historical data and quite frankly what we're seeing right in the public bowls and internal is. Is pretty historic right, so let's start with what we might consider. The Swing Voter Side of the ledger, and then we'll talk about some of the turn out registration targets, so you know you have been part of campaigns world. We Lost White Seniors by twenty points. We a static. You guys right now. white seniors or tied of which means with seniors overall your head. Talk about that like why is that? How much of that do you think it'd be maintained over the next fifteen weeks? I think that there's a couple of things you know. When we take a look at swing, voters There's actually like four really important groups that. You know everyone wants to compare how Biden's doing public Poland's with Hillary but what's really interesting about key group set of moved from sixteen. Is that Biden's not only doing much better and leading in most polling with Voters over sixty five, but he's leading with suburbanites. He's leading with independence, and he's leading with college voters, and so those are like four really important groups that not only did trump win, but is you know Romney won right and so listen? These presidential candidates. Have Different coalition I mean people like to talk about the Obama coalition in. It's important. But Biden's coalition, GonNa look different and clearly part of this started in two thousand, eighteen where we saw suburban women Super White Women College Educated Women but also college educated men really move. I mean take a look at Gretchen Whitmer who is a a a client of ours in places like Oakland County Right She also wanted to Comb County Reagan Democrats which is interesting, which also biting one in the primary, so we're seeing these swing. Voters these groups that Biden is bringing around that is different than the coalitions that we've seen. Seen in the past while at the same time narrowing margins within the Republican base with white voters and also rural voters, and keeping on par with our democratic base, right with young voters in women, and so You know when you, of course you know two thousand eight you. You saw this I. Mean when you are moving, and you have a moment, or if you sustain that moment, you tend to do well almost everywhere, meaning that even in the Republican base voters, rural voters and things like that, you tend to narrow the margins, and they're on margins. In tough places. Is just as important as doing well in some of these other swing areas. Now just specifically unseen Yars I. Listen, you know we see trump's jump rating just getting worse and worse on handling the coronavirus eppendorf pandemic clearly seniors Vulnerable the most at risk, and I think they're reacting directly to that risk in terms of feeling like he didn't get serious enough. He didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan and now with the kind of the surge feel like he's put his head in the sand and I think it's just cost him dearly with that largest age bracket the motor sixty five, and over the last Democratic presidential candidate to win sixty five and over. Is Al Gore so that Kinda gives you an idea. Of! How important this is! Yeah, reminded. Every election is its unique beast so on whether it's seniors suburban voters, you mentioned both college educated women and men Joe Biden right now, doing extremely well. Two questions for you John Do you think he's close to his ceiling there and the job really for your campaign is to maintain those numbers. Do you think there's room to grow? And secondly just how durable do think it is? Do you think that some of these voters are already locked in and is going to be really hard for trump to dislodge them? You get a feeling that where we are today. is very difficult for trump and listen first of all we should say we. We all have a collective PTSD right from two thousand sixteen, and so none of us are getting overseas, but at the same time you know you have to acknowledge the good polls because you know, there's a couple of things that are different from where Joe Biden is from past democratic nominees, including Barack Obama and and twelve. In that, he's also at fifty percent. Right at this point in time whatever what hundred four days and you know there's been no Democrat or Republican candidate you go all the way back to two thousand who's reached that threshold and so you know that's really import. The other part is is that Joe. Biden isn't scary to voters. I mean that's one reason he's leaving with independence. And if you take a look at I don't know the NBC Paul I think is is a good example or one of the most recent ones where I think it's the Fox foxhole. We're Biden is actually above water popularity. Naturally trump is underwater, but trump's very unfavorable is at forty seven percents, and binding I. Think is at thirty one. There's win been one thing that I think when they write about Joe Biden in the primary and the general election is the stability of his vote, right? It really hasn't moved that much. I mean trump's has moved down during the primary I mean. We're biden kind of started at the beginning. He ended at the end. It was very stable. Other people moved all around, but Joe Biden was incredibly stable and I think. Think that we're GONNA see that same dynamic here and we have really in the last several months. The Joe Biden's vote has been incredibly stable it's in a couple of points to the fifty percent mark. trump has moved down right and that is that is a good thing but the stability is important for Joe Biden. One is how voters view him and to how voters view trump. You know there was the I think it was the B. Poll that showed fifty percent of voter said there was no chance at all that they would vote for trump, and so your question is you know, will biden's numbers remain stable, and there just seems to be a universe of voter that is completely cut off from trump and it's because of how people you him prior. Let's think about this. Let's dissect prior to the pandemic. People you know we always heard the same thing. Whether it was you know for for Biden. Her for US Senate race for a congressional race. Is that people disliked? His behavior is tweeting his bowling. He was a jerk They basically just didn't like him as a human being, but hey, you know it's not like some of his agenda and his policies. They like how he took on. The median shook things up in Washington, DC. Now they're problem with him. Is Not only behavior how he reacted in a protest and things like that doubling down. Of Racism but their main problem is. Is that they feel that he failed the leadership test on the three crises, whether it was the health and crisis, whether it was the police brutality protests crisis, and now the economic crisis, which is hurting his economic numbers, and so they're now viewing him His biggest problem isn't just his behavior which they haven't forgotten. It's his lack of leadership or his mishandling of these crisis, so three and a half years in their judging him president. President. They're not judging him as a personality. That is his biggest problem right now, and you know I don't think that you know that's going to change. I think that we have a couple more crises potentially coming very soon, college kids and K. through twelve kids start going to school and mid August and you know it's GonNa be It's going to be really a a really tense time. I think it's GonNa. Be a problem for a lot of communities, a lot of states, a lot of holds and that is the problem. They're going to squarely put. On trump because he didn't take this series at the beginning, you didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan. And that's a problem I mean. We have more crises coming quite frankly. Yeah, now that's that's a great point and your point about his very under favorable I mean if he's sailing into voting time in late September and October with forty seven percent, unfavorable lombardo grounds He's really up against a wall there so John. I, think one of the mistakes. Sometimes you can make whether it's politics. Are Businesses your opponent? Your competition does something puts. Puts out, an ad or new strategy and you know you're like well. That's dumb and of course I've learned like you better. Take a minute and think through why they think it's smart right, but on this suburban thing what what strikes it's almost like trump got a briefing saying you're hemorrhaging the suburbs and he's like Ooh I. Know what I'll say. I'M GONNA say Joe Biden is going to destroy the so like. Do you see any evidence that that tactic which seems to be front and Center for trump, and his campaign now has any chance of succeeding. Listen I think that you know you and I have been through a lot of campaigns, and when you're in a campaign where you're behind, and you're behind eight or ten points, what do you do you just kinda start throwing things at the wall and he tends to throw things at the wall I. Mean You know in one week? He's hitting us on. China I mean all paid TV the next week. He's in his on. You Know Nafta now. Now, he didn't on defunding the police and so they try a lot of different things out right but the fact is is that trump was up on TV in the battleground states for a couple of months prior awesome. You sure what the number is, but I think it's close to fifty million dollars. We never saw the numbers. Move I. Mean you see that in the public calling right? I mean our numbers actually got better. His numbers got worse even though he was on TV by himself and very high levels as well as with his allies, and so you know now. We're on TV. So now we're in a position to you. Know have our own message. Ever Own Voice of voters see what Biden's about What's his agenda and his vision and again we don't see any deterioration a matter of fact, if the last ten days are any indication and again we don't you know. We don't get over our skis on this but the. The. Number of polls have showed this in double digits. is a good place to be. It doesn't mean that we're not gonNA work hard doesn't mean we don't take anything for granted. We know that we just gotTa fight for every vote and we know that it's going to get closer because that's what thing, but that's just. The natural physics of presidential races but I think that again it goes to the opponent meaning Joe Biden. clearly isn't Hillary Clinton. You were talking about very unfavorable in two thousand sixteen. Trump's very unfavorable was forty seven percent, and Hillary's was forty five percents, so there was a lesser of two evils dynamic. Going on, you always see this kind of analysis of what they call double haters, people who dislike both candidate. Well you can't call them double haters this time because they are. They hate trump, but they just kinda just like Joe. Biden are they dislike politics? Right is so his very unfavorable with that group is you know literally I? Think it's a quarter of trump's, and he wins that group by forty plus points depending on the pulled that you see, and that's actually really important again. They don't see Joe Biden scary. They see him as a compassionate relatable. Guy you know they keep the fact that he's lunch Pail Joe and he's a guy. WHO's GONNA look out. For Working Families and he is, you know someone that one. The trump and their allies throw punches. you know they? They're not sticking like their sticking and past presidential campaign. Right, so I WANNA. Talk about filling in the blanks on Joe. Biden, what you guys have started to do, but I want on I. WanNa talk about battlegrounds from and so you made an important point. which is you know when you've got momentum? Momentum in a campaign particularly national campaign. You see you see you see progress everywhere. It's just not in a particular state or region, so I a couple of questions one. Are you seeing with swing voters in particular? Are you seeing the same strength for Joe Biden in the south in the Midwest and the West and I guess secondly I would've thought. Let's say ninety days ago hundred twenty days ago, trump's floors, floor and battlegrounds. Forty six. It looks like it may be lower. So what do you think is I? Mean I agree with you that you know when you see a poll right now. That shows Biden fifty forty. You know the other ten percents gotta go somewhere. And you know probably more of that comes to trump it goes to you guys because you're bumping up against a pretty pretty good and healthy ceiling, but I'm curious kind of what where? Where you see both, is there uniformity in terms of the movement across the country and secondly kind of? Where do you see trump's floor now? Yeah, well, I do think that there's again. We you know you can talk about Joe Biden's feeling, but really when you look at it, historically all the way back to two thousand is just presidential candidates ceilings I mean there's not a lot of presidential candidates who've gotten over fifty percent. Who won right and so the fact that we're in this divided country and there are third party. Candidates who siphoned off universe. Hopefully it won't be as much as two thousand sixteen, and we don't think that it will be but the ceiling is is is almost as close to fifty or a little above for almost everyone right I mean that just kinda historically has how it's happened. Happened in the battleground states like you, you say whether it's Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Florida Arizona I, mean he's having trouble getting to the mid forties right I, mean he in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania in Wisconsin in the real clear politics or the fivethirtyeight average of polls, he stood at forty, one and forty two percent now Florida in Arizona and in North Carolina or Kinda GonNa Act like Florida. And North Carolina in Arizona, they're they're always going to be tighter. Right I mean like Scott Ours no always says Florida tight and that's true now we haven't. You in a lead that's above the margin of error. That hasn't happened very often. That, you and I have done enough Florida. politics polling to know that that is a state that tends to tighten up again. I think that we have. An advantage there because of how we're doing with seniors, and we're competing David I. Mean you know it's like this campaign is going to look a lot like you to you like two thousand eight because of where we're competing? The balanced expansion. In the media markets in Florida, well, where do you WanNa? See I mean I. Remember Two thousand like it was yesterday we were. We were up on TV at high levels. Competing with McCain wear Panama City Talahassee. Jacksonville Gainesville, we were fighting the fight in the panhandle. Right and you know. I mean protect protect I four and all that type of stuff. You GotTa do well Miami Dade Palm Beach etc, but when you see a campaign competing against the Republican in the Republican areas That's what you gotTA. Do to win a place like Florida, and a lot of campaigns often have to make the cost benefit analysis, or make the bad decisions, and this campaign, because it's been under great leadership and the reason, a lot of money gives you the ability to run the race. You need to run to win, right? So I want to just ask you quickly third party because you mentioned it and you live through this horror in two thousand sixteen, where trump could win states like Wisconsin with forty seven point two percent of the vote because the third party vote share was. Higher than historical averages right now in your research and it seems to be true in public research. You're seeing that those numbers may revert more to two percent or less that we've gotten used to write, and that's huge because your ceiling is higher than trump's. I would guess at this point right and so I think that I think that this is how I look at that and you know I mean when you pull when you add third party candidates two point, they always get more on the pole than they actually do on election day right I mean. That's just kind of the dynamic, and so you know you have to. You have to test things a bunch of different ways. But I think there's one thing that we all kind of instinctively know that in two thousand sixteen. There were how a lot of voters Bernie voters etc. WHO stayed at home? WHO VOTED FOR GARY? Johnston voted for Jill Stein and ninety nine percent of them who vote did one of those three things were ninety nine percent. Sure that Hillary Clinton was going to be president, and so they were doing a protests about. those voters now know what's at stake. And they're You know their their enthusiasm. If you will to get vote or get, trump out of office is incredibly high. It's an incredibly intense, and so I think that that dynamic and quite frankly Bernie Sanders and his campaign and the Joe Biden and his campaign have worked together on a plethora of issues. will make the dynamics here much different so we don't see that bleed, and and internally we see we see that you know. Joe Biden just has better with Bernie Voters Than Hillary Clinton did in two thousand sixteen well does tighten up. That's going to be such an important dynamic. So, You mentioned You know the Biden campaign. has a very expansive electoral map again. Something we might not have expected months ago. and you know those are pretty weighty decisions. You're involved in those decisions with General. Molly Dylan and Donald other leadership in the campaign, but John when you think about the places that look now plausible. Not Win them, but you know Georgia in other poll out in Texas today publicly had Biden Upright one Ohio Iowa those are likely not going to be in. My view is two hundred seventy electoral vote, but do you think there's a scenario where you could get surprise? Where maybe you don't win in north, Carolina and Georgia, or is there really a stack ranking on these states? Well as you know, there's always a stack ranking and you were at the you know. Know Genesis in two thousand twelve of analytics right, and so there's a there's a lot of simulations things that you know you and I didn't learn about growing up in this business and there's and there's tipping points, states and things like that. I think that at the end of the day again. The leadership of this campaign is incredibly focused and disciplined, and you can see where we're buying TV. It's public and it's always you know reported on. You know we're very focused on the six battleground states, and you know until you know, they move on to another state. We will be focused on those six states in a very disciplined way, because that is the ball game I think that what's difficult for trump is that he's not only communicating in those six days. He is playing defense right now in Ohio and Iowa, so he is spending a lot of money in Ohio in Iowa. Just protecting himself he's also up in Nevada right, which I don't understand, but you know, right. Right and so she's the one that is actually expanding a lot of money. and I can't say in an undisciplined way. He is in trouble, so he has to expand his hip protected. He has to expand but right now. the Joe Biden campaign is very disciplined and very focused and you know will there be expansion states. You know there's a big map on the wall just like there is you know in two thousand, eight and twelve and sixteen, but you gotta be careful, and you have to be very analytical about doing that.
Washington D.C.-area forecast: Hot today, and turning hotter the next few days
"Draper with us tonight. And Amelia, You've got one heck of a hot forecast force from the weekend. Exactly, Shawn. We're talking about dangerous heat moving in for the weekend, especially Sunday and then staying dangerously hot Monday Tuesday, potentially even Wednesday as well.

O P and seeing that materialized now into parts of southern Maryland down into Charles County, saying some really heavy rainfall just to the south of the low Plato area. Ah lot of lightning as well starting to develop so we could see some heavy rain, some strong, gusty winds out around the Hughes Ville. Sorry. This does look like it's slowly moving on into ST Mary's and potentially portions of Calver and the southernmost point of Prince George's County, so some isolated storms out there Tonight. Most of us do look to stay dry with blows, though, on ly in the seventies area wide high temperatures tomorrow warming into the middle Upper nineties. Humidity levels are slightly lower compared to today. That being said, though our heat index tomorrow afternoon, it's still above 100 degrees, and then Sunday afternoon, Middle Upper nineties and tropical Community make our heat index feel like 100 to 107 degrees, so we could certainly have a heat advisory out there as we look to Sunday and then Monday if we hit 100 which I am Gore casting, it will be the first time Reagan National has hit 100 in almost four years.

"gore" Discussed on This Day In Esoteric Political History
"This Day July Ninth Nineteen, Ninety, two presidential candidate Bill Clinton opted not to use his vice presidential pick to balance the ticket instead selecting another young southerner with centrist leanings to be his running mate. Al Gore Out Gore had run for President before he would go on to be the nominee in two thousand, and of course whether his presence on the ballot in Nineteen ninety-two actually helped Clinton win is up. Up for debate, as is often the case with these things, so let's talk about it. Let's get into not just this pick, but some of the big questions around what it means to pick a vice president I'm joined as always by Nicole. Hammer Columbia Hello Mickey Hello Judy, and here for his third episode with us is John dickerson minutes and the new book, the hardest job in the world has. Hello Jody, so your book. The hardest job in the world is about the presidency and I'm GONNA. Do something that every vice president has probably lamented, which is make it about the president, so let me ask you. What can you learn? How much can you learn about a president from their vice presidential picks and in this particular case? How much can we learn about Bill Clinton, from his choice of Al Gore. There's the endless debate about balancing the ticket, and whether the balance that's in the ticket is a meaningful event electorally or whether it's when I spent some time looking into Eisenhower's pick of Nixon. To kind of mollify the conservatives, who are angry because he'd romped all over taft, and who they assumed would get the Republican nomination. It was less in the context as I read the history of a vice president who could pick them up a state and more kind of unity ticket that was built after defeating the golden haired boy of Senator Taft. And so then we all know about Johnson and Kennedy. What strikes me about? Gore that's interesting is Gore feels like one of those picks where the president said I want a governing partner? I mean certainly in the Democratic Party picking another white man from the south was not what much of the Democratic Party wanted and yet Clinton felt like Gore could be a governing partner in the way that that Obama treated Biden in the way Bush, treated Cheney somebody who's going to do the work of the job and not just be selected for the electoral votes they might bring in or the constituencies. They might wrap in for their party and I. would layer on top of that it. Underscored the message of the Clinton campaign right? This is a new generation of leaders, and both of them were incredibly young men. They were going up against President Bush who had done a lot of really amazing things over the course of his career, but who was a waspish elderly man that they were running against a member of the greater greatest generation as opposed to a member of the baby boom generation, and so it really just underlined that difference. That's right. The the bridge to the future has these two people building it, and that that's exactly right, and they're kind of youthful energy of the baby boomers. That's exactly right. They could jog together. They do those tiny shorts? Yeah, that was. You, don't see that one. That was less also you know I mean Gore also short up some of Clinton's character challenges to which was helpful, and also I guess the extent although I. Don't remember this being made as an argument for him, but his experience in the Senate would be helpful in teaching the Non Washington, and that's why I was thinking about Mondale with Carter outside of Washington governor. Coming in has vice presidential pick. Who knows the folk ways of the town which? Which is is actually legitimately helpful. I can't remember whether it was actually an argument for Gore at the time. Yeah, and it's interesting that you mentioned the selection of Richard Nixon as a way of shoring up a different faction within the party, because both Clinton and Gore were part of the deal, see the Democratic Leadership Council which was kind of the same wing of the party right these various centrist technocratic politicians who were rejecting in many ways. Ways the McGovern wing of the party. It wasn't an effort to bring aboard governed nights. It was an effort to sort of solidify this new direction, the third way for the Party and to show swing voters that this was not your longhaired Hippie bell-bottom Democrats by pro-death. Penalty Pro Fiscal Restraint Dad Democrats. Who you as an electoral, so I mean it does seem like there's maybe two types of VP picks roughly speaking one. That may be kind of. Of reinforces some of the major themes and advantages that you going for, and then some that may be kind of fill in gaps feels like right now. We're having a conversation with Biden mostly about the gaps. Can we see kind of in a larger sweep weather like the choices are moving in one direction or another? Is it really case by case? I think it's case by case, but I would say that one of the things that Gore. Is An important part of that I think has been increasingly. The case is is this idea of governing partners that the vice president isn't going to be simply put into a broom closet in the White House and let left alone for forty years that it's going to be someone with a portfolio and you see that with Gore, who's given the task of reorganizing the entire federal government? You see that of course Cheney, who has so much more federal government experience than George W Bush has, and you see with Biden as well that they're. They're real partners in the kind of work that they're doing and you saw with even when Dukakis Benson I mean. Mean, you know it was somebody who had Washington stature where the expectation was that that stature would be employed in the service of what Dukakis was running on I think that's right and having just spent so many years writing a book about what the presidency really is. It's really useful to have somebody that is put in charge of or nominally put in charge of some chunk of the presidency, because it's more than one person can handle and actually increasing our view of the presidency as an organization, rather than just one person would be quite helpful in changing our expectations for what the actual job is. I also like the way in which Obama used. Biden or at least my understanding of it. which was that in the debates about Afghanistan to have Biden? Designated skeptic as they were discussing when and how to change their Afghanistan posture, military posture to just always have somebody in the room. Who's playing that role and the they also talk about chiefs of staff this way to who are playing the role as kind of the president's blindspot minder, who's always poking at ideas? Always covering for something, a president might miss because of just the over the overwhelming nature of the job Nikki with Al Gore. Kind of things we think of SS, Big Policy Legacy, certainly environmentalism, and then you know fairly or not. The whole Al Gore invented the Internet bullshit line that flows the floats around Bullshit Line is in like I think it's an unfair of disparaging of him but what? What is your sense of kind of how much that kind of stuff played into this decision and his partnership with Clinton. Well I think it's important to understand who Al Gore was in terms of the Democratic Party. He came in in the late nineteen seventies in the nineteen eighties. He's this part of this group of Young Democratic legislators. The Atari Democrats Atari was a video game console at the time for those. Didn't get a chance to to play it, but it was sort of like you might call the Silicone Valley, generation, or something like that like these were the tech guys? These were the guys who believed that technology was going to revolutionize democracy, and it was going to revolutionize governing, and they wanted to harness that power I mean this is conversation that's been ongoing in American government for a long time, but it also plays in to the idea of the deal. Cease Centrist. Right that if you believe that there are technological answers to everything, then you. You don't have to get caught up in debates about ideology, and that's the way that Al Gore wanted to govern, and then of course he comes into office with Bill Clinton I. Think they saw I'd I on that? They just happened to come into office in the middle.

The Washington Post wrote an article entitled a Cautionary Tale for politicians Al Gore and the invention of the Internet. They agreed that the meat of the quote. I just read you. Even allowing for the fact that quote people sometimes mis speak on live. Television End. Quote seemed to grab credit and a somewhat overly zealous way. Here's what the Post said. Quote a gaffe sticks if it's somehow validates preconceived notions about a politician Gore. Had a real story to tell about being one of the first politicians to grasp the importance of interconnected computers with one awkward phrase spun up by opponents and miss reported by the media he managed to obscure his accomplishments and instead became a recurring punchline and quote and to me. That's the thing. The whole quote was spun to fit into a common media characterization of Gore as I don't know I guess Smarty Pants know at all the snooty professor type or moral scold. Which of course the later movie inconvenient truth did little to alleviate the whole Brouhaha about inventing the Internet though really kicked off on March Eleventh Nineteen Ninety nine wired news published in article by the writer. Declan mccullagh by the way same. Last name is mine but he spells it differently. So there's no relation under the title. No credit where it's due McCullough said that Gore quote took credit for the Internet and quote and went on to point out that Gore was too young to have been around for the creation of arpanet and claimed quote Gore has taken credit for popularizing the term information superhighway but the term data highway has been used as far back as nineteen seventy five before. Gore even enter Congress end quote of course Gore didn't claim anything about arpanet or the Info highway at least not in the interview in question nonetheless within days the tag of the bragging and possibly fibbing Al Gore stuck. This was in the days before blogs and long before the Twitter Echo Chamber which today tends to pounce on political gaffe or meam and often reliably parts is those facts but also tends to bounce the debate back and forth Ad Nauseam. I think that the fact that the issue was initially picked up by wired magazine wired news was an important factor in the evolution of this me again. This was a more technologically time and lots of quote. Normal people would have taken wired as an expert voice on Internet matters and so on the same day that the McCulloch article appeared House Majority Leader. Dick Armey issued a press release. That was sarcastically. Titled Army Applauds Vice President Gore for Ingenuity creatively and imagination. The press release said in part. Let me quote here quote. If the vice president created the Internet then I created the interstate highway system. Both were begun during the Eisenhower Administration. And I think I actually deserves a little credit here. It's common in Washington to steal an idea and claim it was yours all along. This strategy certainly worked for the administration on welfare reform and tax cuts but claiming credit for the Internet insults. It's real creators whose hard work and ingenuity can never be stolen and quote. This was followed shortly by a statement from then Senate majority leader. Trent Lott saying quote during my service in the United States Congress. I took the initiative in creating the paper clip. Lot refused to answer questions about whether or not he was. Also the fifth beatle end quote and so by that point the meme was well and truly often running the idea that Al Gore claimed credit for inventing. The Internet almost immediately became what it's been ever since a punchline for late night comedians it shares this distinction. I guess with the questionable claim that Gore and his then wife Tipper were the inspiration for the novel and Movie Love Story. But as. That's a bit beyond our purview. Here I did not investigate the veracity of the Love Story. The now common joke even made it into the presidential debates of the two thousand election during a back and forth about the calculation of HMO coverage in the first presidential debate of that year. Then candidate George W Bush zinged Gordon with the line quote. Not only did he invent the Internet but he invented the calculator and Quote Gore. Himself would often return to the gaff many times trying to defuse it with humor like this quote. I was pretty tired when I made that comment because I had been up very late the night before inventing the camcorder and quote declan mccullagh followed up with two more pieces in wired news covering the fallout from the media. Name that he himself had helped create. It all seemed to fit so well into the by this point firmly established narrative of Gore as the arrogant braggart quoting from McCulloch's third piece quote reinventing yourself and rewriting. Your resume is a form of high art in Washington. Then why the opprobrium heaped upon Gore simple? He was clumsy enough to get caught and quote. The problem is McCullough himself. Didn't investigate deeply enough to see that. In Fact Gore was responsible for some significant legislation that in the opinion of quite a few Internet. Pioneers was quite useful in the mediums early days in Short Gore. Kind of had a point even if he stated in a shall we say enthusiastic manner he kind of did have a hand in helping the Internet developed in his most recent book. The innovators Walter Isaacson says about this incident quote. It's a mark of our political discourse that one of the significant nonpartisan on behalf of American innovation. He speaking of the Gore Bill got turned into a punchline because of something that Gore never quite said end quote and years later no less partisan than Newt Gingrich who it should be pointed out. Light Gore is a well-known nerd and innovation policy. Wonk is willing to let Gore off the hook for the gaffe saying quote in all fairness. It's something Gore had worked on for a long time. Gore is not the father of the Internet but in all fairness Gore is the person who in Congress most systematically worked to make sure that we got to an Internet. The truth is and I worked with him. Starting in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. When I got to Congress we were both part of a futures group the fact is in the Clinton administration. The world we had talked about in the eighties began to actually happen. And quote for what it's worth. Gore was inducted into the Internet Hall of fame but he was inducted in the category of global connectors. And Not in the category of Pioneers. Like vint CERF or Bob Metcalfe and not in the category of innovators alongside the likes of Tim Burners Lee Mark Andriessen or even Swartz so in conclusion. No Al Gore did not invent the Internet but technically he never actually said that he did in the end based on what I've been able to piece together about this. It's clear that Gore made a sloppy statement. That maybe you don't have to take too far out of context to come away with the impression he was claiming credit for bringing the Internet to life. But here's also the thing at least in my opinion most legislators even to this day have very little understanding of technology. They don't really understand how the Internet actually works and I'm not just talking about things like the series of tubes quote. I'm saying our politicians don't have even a base level understanding of how things like software and hardware and networking and digital technology actually function in the real world. And so that's kind of why we have such terrible laws governing things like patents and copyright and Net neutrality because since the legislators don't understand any of it on a very basic level because it's all weird Geeky Mumbo jumbo to them they end up just trusting the lobbyists to understand for them and write legislation for them so again. I didn't research this piece to exonerate or attack Al Gore. I don't actually care about what he said. On a partisan level at least my interests are only historical but I will make this one point. It's clear that Al Gore was an avid and early fan of technology and innovation of technologies role in our society and the ways that government can help or hinder that innovation. So if we're being honest don't you wish we had a few more politicians like Albor in Congress today? Who At least cared enough about the technology to try to understand it better? I'm saying we need more GEEKS and Congress Democrat geeks and Republican Geeks more gigs..
"gore" Discussed on Techmeme Ride Home
"Welcome to another weekend. Bonus episode of the technion ride home. I'm Brian McCullough. As I said on Friday this is the time that I did a whole deep dive into the whole controversy surrounding Al Gore saying he invented the Internet that you think you know the story at least as a punchline but did he actually say that and in fact the truth surrounding Al Gore's role in the early Internet is a lot more interesting than you might think please enjoy. I think it's something that we all just sort of know the idea that Al Gore claimed he invented the Internet. I remember it being a small political issue at the time of the two thousand election but I honestly never cared enough to investigate the details last weekend however I went down a bit of research rabbit hole and so decided to find out the truth. Not because I'm a huge fan of Al Gore or because I'm looking to score points against him either. I was just genuinely interested and I wanted to find out the historical truth. Not The partisan tinged conventional wisdom truth and so. This episode is about what I found out as I've mentioned in a previous episode of this podcast when the Clinton Gore ticket was first elected back in nineteen ninety. Ninety-two one of their big platform. Initiatives was the use of computers and digital technology to create new jobs and new industries. That would help the country. Innovate its way out of the sharp recession. It was experiencing at the time. Gore was very much put forth as the front man for this new Geek based economy push in fact just a few short days after the election of November nineteen ninety two. The New York Times ran an article with the title Clinton to promote high-technology with Gore in charge the article stated that the administration wanted the government to finance research quote that will flood the economy with innovative goods and services lifting the general level of prosperity and strengthening American industry and quote. Indeed the Clinton administration followed through with various bills to this effect and in fact Gore himself was often involved in many internet and web. I as a result of this Gore became the first vice-president to give a live interactive news conference on a computer network. The first ever White House website was launched as early as October. Twenty First Nineteen ninety-four two months in fact before netscape version. One point zero was even launched. As a part of Gore's high profile project to streamline government bureaucracy federal government agencies were encouraged to utilize the web and the Internet to cut down on waste and redundancy and then there was Gore's involvement in the infamous clipper chip initiative. Which again I discussed in that previous episode of the podcast but it turns out. Al Gore has always been touted as a bit of a nerd from his first days in Congress in the Nineteen Seventies Gore tended to gravitate towards scientific and technological issues sponsoring and cosponsoring tech and science bills as well as seeking assignments on Congressional and Senate committees that oversaw such issues describing a young Congressman Gore. A later wired article said quote before computers were comprehensible struggled to explain artificial intelligence and fiber optic networks to sleepy colleagues end quote and the book computer. A history of the information machine said that the quote problem giving ordinary Americans network access had excited senator. Al Gore's since the late nineteen seventies and quote in fact Gore was often lumped in with a group of young lawmakers who were referred to at the time as quote Atari Democrats the San Jose Mercury News defined Atari Democrats as quote Smart Young Congressmen who sought to make the restoration of American business. Their issue and quote in article in The New York Times referred to Atari Democrats as quote young moderates who saw investment and high-technology as the contemporary answer to the new deal and quote. An important thing to remember is that Al Gore was the son of a famous Senator Albert Gore senior who was one of the principal congressional architects of the Interstate Highway System which was begun during the Eisenhower Administration in the nineteen fifties. So when Algarve junior began investigating the possibilities of nationwide computer networking systems for example introducing S. Twenty Five Ninety four the supercomputer network study active nine hundred six. It's probably natural that he saw echoes of his father's achievements linking the country together via roads. It's unlikely that Al Gore junior coined the phrase information superhighway self. But he's certainly popularized the phrase in speeches and bills he introduced in the nineteen seventies and nine hundred. His vision was that citizens around. The country could be linked together via computer highways just as his father had lengthened together with automobile highways and that brings us to the key event that ties. Al Gore to Internet history for better or worse in one thousand nine hundred eighty group led by Ucla professor of computer science. Leonard Kline Rock submitted a paper to Congress entitled toward a National Research Network Kline. Rock was one of the original creators of arpanet that predecessor of the Internet as well as being the author of the very first scholarly paper on packet switching theory. The paper that Kline Rock Group was now presenting the Congress in Nineteen Eighty eight envision taking the existing Internet to another level by creating a national collaborative research network. Sort of what Tim Burners Lee would eventually realized with the worldwide web inspired by this paper Albert Junior would introduce the high performance computing and Communication Act of nineteen ninety one. The bill was intended to funnel federal dollars towards the continued research in high performance computing networks and the legislation came to be commonly referred to as the Gore Bill. When the first President Bush signed it into law on December Ninth Nineteen ninety-one? He stated that the act would help unlock the secrets of DNA unquote among other technological innovations. Among these other innovations the Gore bill helped important predecessors to the web such as the National Information Infrastructure and the national research and education network for our purposes especially key among these other..

I do so many slide shows and presentations. I just never get nervous anymore. But I'm nervous before this one the very first climate underground conference here on Gore Farm. Al Gore's back and he's got a new slide. Show better take heed last October. The former Vice President Nobel Prize winner and Academy Award Winner for an inconvenient truth and activist restaurant tour. Founder of the Edible Schoolyard Alice. Waterson gathered farmers ranchers scientists shafts researchers and policymakers on his family farm in Carthage Tennessee for a riveting set of conversations about the world of food and regenerative agriculture in solving the climate crisis. They called the two day event the climate underground along with the conversations. Some of Nashville's hottest chefs joined Alice in creating a sustainable organic school. Lunch to highlight. The power of local school supported agriculture in nurturing the health of children and the land. This event happened long before the moment we will find ourselves in right now as the corona virus pandemic sweeps across the planet but it holds seeds and hope for a different approach to our future and the fate of the planet. Meal share in honor of birthday. The kitchen sisters present the climate underground as a child from first year my life all the way through until I was in college. I spent every summer here on this farm at Christmas and every spring vacation. My father told me how to recognize the best and most fertile soil with my hands in it and it was black and moist always believe agriculture in the food system are absolutely key to solving and mitigating the climate crisis. We have converted this farm to a whole variety of genitive practices a combination of plants and livestock with highly diverse cover crops and maximum use of no till the voiding synthetic insecticide. We harvested our first crop. According to these new practices in two thousand sixteen only three years ago. Some very excited that we have not only regenerative farmers but also scientists and entrepreneurs and chefs. We've got some really great. Where else course? Far and Carthage Tennessee. We are cooking to school lunches this for three hundred fifty people who are attending climate underground a about connecting food and farming to climate. I'm Alice waters the owner of shape pennies restaurant and Berkeley California and Co founder of the edible schoolyard project which has grown from one school in Berkeley to a network of seven thousand sent schools around the world. We're here today to acknowledge the land. Not just here in this area Paul over Turtle Island and the Americas. My name is Mary. Crow I'm a member of the eastern Ben is Cherokee. You are here today.

Alice waters who is providing all of the delicious and nutritious food in addition to her groundbreaking work as a chef and a pioneer in the Movement for organic and local food. Alice's also a committed advocate or the role that food and agriculture can play in protecting our environment. And you get started with the edible school projects really began. Then I had a child. I was a monetary teacher. The IDEAS HAVE MONTESSORI HAVE INFORMED. All of my work she believed in the education of the census ship believed in touching and tasting and smelling. When I started the edible. Schoolyard project is said. Food is subway to really open up the senses because it touches every one of them if we put in a garden and we put in the kitchen classroom. We could wake up. The young people who were have been sent sorely deprived many of them because of hunger and because poverty because of an indoctrination of fast food culture throughout most of human history the daily ritual and practice of collecting gathering preparing eating food together has been a key part of the connection between individuals and nature and in order to reestablish that connection for children you look for other opportunities than you found one in the school system. I mean that's the place where we can reach children when they're young and open idea of this is to have them fall in love with nature. Food is more than just food. Food is really about culture. We have been indoctrinated by fast food culture when we eat that we digest the values that come with the ideas uniformity. The ideas that we should have whatever we want whenever we want. It doesn't matter where it comes from cooking rusher farming stretcher we think advertising confers factor you the centerpiece of this project is a civilized sustainable school lunch. And before you focused on the school system and the edible schoolyard project your career as a chef was really transformative. What got you involved with that? It was all about taste for me. Taste and beauty. I had gone to France when I was eaten and it was a slow food nation. France kids came home for two hours to eat with their and every day people would go to the markets and their neighbor beautiful outdoor markets. And you bought only what was since. He's we go and eat in these family restaurants that are happening again. People see that making restaurant can be aware of lights. Fit Real connection with the people that come in and I love that about the restaurants I visited your and astral and I feel such kinship with that group of people are ready because we have the same values. That's what's important about this and what we need to communicate to the next generation. It's something that we've been doing since the beginning of ballistic gathering together eating only. What's in season? Only what's locally available even fast food culture with sake? It's impossible to feed kids in schools too many. They don't like you can't find the food but guess what we can Chapter one a fable for tomorrow there was once a town in the heart of America.

"Know what with when I cut. I decided I'm going to have kids. I was rich enough to afford people to take care of them for me. And and none of that fucking matters anymore. I don't WanNa be long because I don't know how to teach a child how to figure out the area of a triangle like idol. I'm not a teacher to do everything now and I don't. I don't have that. Inmates kids that much national preaching to the converted on that one. You know I've been saying that whatever and look everybody is you do you. I mean I understand. People love kids and kids are fun and they and they always said to me things like Oh if you had your own kid you'd change and I swear I would be the first one to look into the crib but my own kid and go still nothing. Yeah and and it's the same thing you just said like I people say oh I I like to learn again through my kids know. I'm over that I know this guys blew. It doesn't interest me to like re okay so Mushrooms with my friends and talk about that right. About how the sky is blue. Yeah it's I went to my nephew at a birthday party. The other day was like a a social distance birthday party. They stayed on the porch. We put the presence up there. They we walked away. They open them. I couldn't hug my nephew. He couldn't like I couldn't play with him so Ideal so what if they were talking about before with Al Gore about about the environment? What if they found out that cell phones where a big part of what causes environmental destruction? And you had to. You know if we're going to keep using cellphones. This kinda stuff is gonNA keep happening. Would you rather be able to if you had to? Would you give up your phone or go to a bar? You can only have one bars and restaurants so I would gladly give up going to bars but giving up your cell phone. I mean I I know it will make me happier to give my cell phone and you would know right away. I think whenever I take just even a couple of minutes off it I feel better. It's an even now when we're all connecting and you were feeling less alone because of it. I understand that but I'm still feeling very triggered by people doing so much or telling you that you need to do less like there's never like everyone making their own mass from Bandanas. It just makes you feel like why don't I have cute bandannas like I feel like I shouldn't feel one from the my neighbors Golden Retriever? I don't have anything. He were doing homework outs with a broom handle on a backpack and like grab a broom and my mom thinks. I'm going to start cleaning. I'm like now I'm working on it just like I just.

"Is over. We've had an appeal. We've taken that appeal. There is no appeal from the United States Supreme Court. Let'S TRY TO ENVISION. What would happen if the if the Supreme Court doesn't shut down the recount right right? It's hard to game out because there are so many different scenarios right. Is there like the full statewide? Manual recount is something more you know modest Settled on right like just under votes over votes. Counted is a just certain counties like do they go revert back to that. I mean what if the Supreme Court never intervened in the first place because they had cast doubt on the Florida Supreme Court. You know a month earlier and a separate decision and and that sort of set things in a weird direction but you know there are scenarios where a limited recount gives the election to Gore or a full recount. Maybe affirms that Bush one on a very narrow vote but again if this all happens after the safe harbor maybe Congress questions it maybe. The Florida legislature goes through with their plan of affirming Bush's the winner regardless of the vote. And that's it. It's it's hard. That's this discrepancy is like what's important the you have uncertainty on one hand and certainty on the other right row. You have the certainty of Bush winning if you hold the recount and you have uncertainty on the other hand. Um and there are like a dozen prestige procedural Things that could have happened. If the recount continued there could have been more court cases different court cases right mom more narrow court cases but the bottom line is that there would have been some risk of Gore winning right and they couldn't tolerate it reckenthaller area so I think the you know part of takeaway here is that Bush Gore was not when the Supreme Court became political. The court has always been driven by ideology politics and power but Bush v Gore exposed. Just how shallow. And partisan the courts politics actually are and stripped away the veneer of impartiality and high mindedness that the court sort of hides behind and anyone who thinks after Bush v Gore the core functions as like an independent body separate from politics or that it even could function like that theoretically is just a rube. Just a complete fucking sucker wrote right. We should talk about the alternate world. We would all live in. Can you imagine there's been tons of research into? What would have happened right if you if you like? Imagine a fair election and it's extremely hard to say because there's there's so much bullshit going on like could hold everything else constant and if the ballots in Palm Beach County are designed different. Al Gore Wins Right. That's just like without controversy at this brand And the question is how different is the world we live in obviously were twenty years out. It's hard to say but the one really significant thing is that Al Gore was the first presidential candidate. I think to ever really significantly talk about global warming which at the time was like a punchline. Right right just like Oh my God. Is this one these? He's obsessed with this like the world's what are you talking about Al Fucking nerd. You Boring Nerd Let's let's see what the idiot has to say about this great? So do I think he could of like passed significantly? Global warming legislation. Like what would have been necessary at the time. Oh no probably not but it would have been on the political radar fifteen years at least before it was right The other thing is that you know Bush gets elected and then within a year plans and orchestrates. The nine eleven attack could all right so We WanNa end this episode on on you know a little more positive note and I think a good way to do it his You know the five majority justices in this case were rehnquist. Scalia Thomas O'Connor and Kennedy and Kennedy and of those Rehnquist and Scalia dead. That's right you may have been you know. I I think that overall worse in terms of if you just had to measure out like who's a worst human being threat to worst they are you can make the argument that like Kennedy's been more damaging because like he's got his wishy washy bullshit kind of vibe about him. Yeah but I think in reality for all being honest the these guys have had almost immeasurable harm that they've inflicted on the country greatest..

"Is it a punch card? Michael like e depends. But they're some that were punch-card right. Yeah the Supreme Court is looking at this and saying During this recount different counties are applying different standards to what they're saying is a vote or not vote for a certain candidate so if something is partially punched through or there's a hanging Chad or a dimple there aren't uniform standards across the state For our counting these votes and the thing is that's how all elections are working. But the the weird thing about this is that like. It's not the craziest argument that you know. There are different standards for how you count. Votes across different counties is that a violation of equal protection. The point though is that if it is then every presidential election in US history has been invalid under the equal protection right and the majority has like a very kind of weird Situation on their hands where they found they need to find the equal protection violation. But you need to get around to the obvious implications of it which are that. All elections are valid under the equal protection clause at least all federal elections any federal election. I could think of maybe outside of House Elections and how do they do that? They do that just by putting in a paragraph that says by the way This doesn't apply doesn't anywhere else you really. And so they really do this. They say this is only applicable to this election. This recount right now doesn't apply anywhere else. Which is absurd and be. I don't even recognize their right to do but I don't think that a court can say Oh Ignore the implications of my reasoning and just limit it to this. If you can't tighten the reasoning so that it's only applicable to this situation and you have to deal with the consequences and the Supreme Court. In in in the opinion they give a lot of Attention and energy to this idea that like you know you don't really have an individual right to vote in this country under the federal constitution and until the state vest this power in the people which is to say that they actually they lead off with that whole concept is there's no constitutional right to vote. Which is true and I. I'd always cracks me up whenever you do. It read voting rights case. Because you have to lead off first of all Fyi There's like no constitutional right to vote. Which I know I think every law student knows but like I think that if you ask the average person if there is a right to vote under the constitution they'd be like well. Yeah of course. That's like the big enough the the cornerstone of our democracy. That's motherfucker fuck and Thomas. Jefferson thought you were an idiot and they they they were like. Oh instead like the you know. The state will appoint like You know whatever. Thirty seven monocled Free to decide what's best for the state and so the you know. The courts have jumped through hoops to sort of create What is now functionally constitutional right to vote but doesn't really exist in the constitution itself. A part of the background for that by the way is that like the you know there were there were talks around this time that the Florida legislature they would just declare Bush the winner. The recount be damned the Florida Supreme Court. Be Damned. They'll just like pass a law that says Bush one and then they'll send Bush electors to the Electoral College. And that'll be that. And I think that this was a little bit of like the Supreme Court being the constitutional. If they WANNA do that. Yeah that's what they wanted to do. So they've that's how invalidate the recount right rats? Step one you've you find this Bullshit equal protection argument threat But now years you still have the second problem. Which is how do you utilize a reasoning that prevents the recount from being restarted or Redone you know. That's the obvious answer to that. It was like still. Let's all the votes counted and find out who won you have a constitutional violation. How do you fix it? So that's the question and they answer it by saying you can't fix it by using this Obscure Safe Harbor Provisions Which states that if your electors are submitted by December twelfth two thousand they're guaranteed to be counted by Congress and by the way this opinion is issued on December twelve. Right is this. This law is Federal Law Obscure Law. Basically says you know if you don't want be the results of your election to be challenged by by Congress. They just need to be submitted by this date. If you do it after that then Congress can technically intervene although in reality I think they never do would. It'd be bizarre. I think it's actually important to note too that lake the using this safe harbor provision. It's not essential it doesn't apply to everybody in the year. Two Thousand Twenty. You don't even use it and the question here is does Florida care more about the safe harbor provision right which is relevant once a century or about an accurate count of the votes of their constituents precedent. It you know. It's a rhetorical question when I say right but not everyone views it like that right and just a highlight like how kind of shoddy the reasoning is in this opinion number one first of all per curium which. I don't think we have we've mentioned which means No one justice is Putting his or her name on it to say I. It's the way that they would put procurement to say that it's like the opinion of the court but the way that I would view it as is a unsigned and that's exactly right exactly and so you automatically start to question why it's per curium. Because nobody wants to put their name on it and then number two just the languages facially. It's ridiculous so there's a quote here. It is obvious that the recount cannot be conducted in compliance with the requirements of equal protection and due process without substantial additional work. Okay I literally row. Ll like okay. So President I do have to say. I have some sympathy. This is too much. I I do this at work all the time. There's a big project like we have this big important goal and I'm like. Oh Wow I don't know about guys. Deadline seems way too soon right. Scalia looked at this and once a nap well and so we stiffly framed. The safe harbor thing was like would you want to submit the actual winners electors open to challenge verse possibly submitting the actual losers electors. Not Open to challenge in court was like clearly. It's the losers electors not open to challenge Florida. Wasser for sure. We're divining the the will of Florida's Lennon to ask the Florida Supreme Court. Who has already disagreed with us on this very on this very point. I mean it's the whole thing is treating the convenience of the Safe Harbor Provision Right which protects the integrity of the state selectors or some stupid shit. That didn't hasn't mattered in one hundred years like that As more important than the constitutional guarantee of equal protection right now. The reason they're doing this is because they don't actually care about the constitutional guarantee of equal protection. They don't think it's an act of violation of equal protection. They just are again like just twisting it every way they can to make sure that a Bush wins and be. There's no way that that it can be changed or reversed or anything right I mean they're they're saying that they understand Florida law better in the Florida Supreme Court right on there saying all types of Shit like that and the other thing about this is that they're saying by the way there's no time for a recount right out of time but they just stayed the fucking recount three days before all right first of all you have to stop and then three days later like. Oh my God she says you guys know that. There is your attitude. I Like I was looking at my watch and then I realized you're at a time as we're writing this is crazy anyway. Good luck in the next election. It's just it's so blatant if he makes me so angry it's it's one of the it's it's incredibly brazen big takeaways that like the Supreme Court doesn't have to be doing this at all in elections states and localities are setting these standards all the time. They're working through it. Florida has this recount problem. They're setting standards. The Florida Supreme Court is working on it the legislators into it and the US Supreme Court comes in here and says no just fucking stop right. Yeah the Florida. Supreme Court gave some pretty clear you direction based on the Florida Constitution. That like they wanted the votes counted and they said that's why the Florida constitution called for and this is all state law the mechanics of their elections. It's very complicated. It's not obvious. Why the Supreme Court is bugging in here? Well well it's political. I mean not obvious what the actual reason wouldn't if you were a real one legally obvious but politically. It's painfully and the petition from Bush's lawyers. That comes first to justice Kennedy Right. He's the one that brings it to conference. Let sounds like a section of the wikipedia that you read that I didn't say go for Kennedy is the one who brings it to conference Justices like Antony. Scalia think yes. The Supreme Court has to step in here and Justices like so bad. Imagine Scalia when it first became clear that they had the option of intervening. The fucking sheared raising three inches long. And here's the thing. Is that even if you try to be generous to these guys and be like well look. Maybe they're just going on their intuitions. It's totally backwards. All the justices who want to weigh in here in and overrule the Florida courts. Generally their intuitions are that the federal court should stay out of state business right. That's that's the other thing is like the Conservatives on the court constantly like when the federal government's trying to expand minority rights or something right the Conservatives will step in and be like ooh state issue. Sorry we would love to break is actually all the states Sorry you can't fuck around with this at all because you're the feds and then here all of a sudden they have zero respect. I'm sympathetic to your argument. That black people are full people but in South Carolina is not. I think it's our place I don't think so but Here we have very strong opinions on whether or not a dimpled ballot. Verse a half. Hanging Chad ballots should be counted. And so I just I want to say like we're we're sitting here and we're sort of divining. Ill intent from the strained reasoning here and I don't think that's hard. I don't think it's a stretch. I think it's like blatantly obvious but I also want to say like I know someone who clerked on the Supreme Court and at the end of Michael. I've got a friend who is a an MVP at Goldman? Well I.

"Their calls to Bush. Yeah Projects George W Bush. The winner in Florida and dusted appears the winner of the presidency of the United States. By morning people. Wake up and it's it's undecided you twenty-five votes away from Al Gore and put it in the undecided column and should they break for Bush on November eight th the next day the Florida's division of elections. They say that Bush won by a really small margin It's like seventeen hundred votes which is less than the point. Five percent which which means basically that a mandatory recount is triggered and by November tenth. The machine recounts have brought that lead down to like around three hundred votes so It's it's a fucking mess is what it is. Gore requests Manual recounts in four counties. And the shit show just gets more intense from there in Palm Beach County for example Ten thousand ballots were were set aside because they recorded no vote for president at all in a Volusia county. They Record Gore receiving negative sixteen thousand votes. So it's like what the fuck turned out not to be an error. So he's not that popular attention even as like a child like a teenager. Witnessing this was just like peeking under the the veil of American politics and seeing like this horrible writhing mass beneath where like everything was deeply corrupt and inaccurate and full of just like human error and And dark motivations and like it was just the first time. I think that a light had been shined on this part of the system and it was like deeply unsettling to everyone. I was eighteen at this time and I lived in Fort Lauderdale in Broward County which was sort of ground zero for all of this. It was one of the four counties that were supposed to do a manual recount along with Miami Dade and a couple other Miami Dade Broward Palm Beach and Volusia each with more registered Democrat. I voted in the election so I do not know if my vote counted and they were just like bizarre protests and it was all anybody talked about. And it's hard to really explain what it's like to have that be your first electoral experience. Even before all the election against there was like the fifty thousand voters that got purged from the Florida voter rolls. Because you know. They are supposedly felons but it turns out. A lot of them weren't felons than maybe misdemeanors maybe no rhyme at all in their all black or Hispanic and one estimate says that cost Gore five thousand votes in an election. He lost by three votes. Like a lot of the mad is Is just inevitable in organic and you know. There's a lot of tension because people don't really know what's going to happen but some of it was just as manufactured bullshit most famously the quote Unquote Brooks Brothers Riot. I have a question What what is manage where store? I knew the question Yeah it's just a suiting suiting store. They know it's just It's like your standard bear made rain like mid to low range like the U. I should go to men's warehouse and then you realize that that's not nice enough for your Fans y'all actually like the way you look and then you go to brooks brothers to pay like seven hundred dollars for a suit that Some fucking idiot sells you and then great right there. That's not it's not at Brooks brothers. Ritz brothers was unscathed thankfully Basically what happened was in Miami. Dade there were these Ten thousand or so ballots under votes right. These ballots that hadn't recorded boats. And and we're getting close to one of the deadlines here and miami-dade is concerned about being able to recount all the votes. So they say well. We're going to look at these ten thousand ballots And they kind of retire to a smaller room so they can segregate them out and start manually assessing each ballot and there was a lot of concern that there would be enough votes for Gore in this in this batch to change the outcome of the election so Republicans flew in all these like forty to fifty year old lawyers. Of course they're like almost all lawyers and when we say Republicans like the actual Republican Party right in DC right now. This is like yeah. This is like Roger Stone. Who's like you know a fucking Republican rat fucker back into the seventies you know and Nixon guy and with the Nixon to right? That's right that's correct dresses like a villain in who framed Roger Rabbit. It's all Republican aides and lawyers. Who Fly in there all on their like blackberries. They're all new fancy suits Protesting and they get violent. They they're like punching people Someone from the DNC literally assaulted the and and they and they succeed. They shut down. This recount like two hours after they fucking very important to note that. This is the only successful riot in American history every every time that like like someone is protesting police violence or whatever they just get fucking wiped out with tear gas but fucking fifty Republican lawyers. Show up in Miami Dade and they're like well whatever they want window whatever they want just let us know immediately capitulate act exactly how they do with their wives and you know got. Oh Jesus I think it's good to talk about the riot because it It's a good preview for the next twenty years of Republican politics and the way they treat like elections generally democrats and the idea that you know any democratic efforts at like getting. Both counted are illegitimate. Yeah fraudulent and they can take whatever means you know necessarily their hands to shut that down all they gotta do. All they want to do is win elections so they don't have shit and maybe the most like emblematic aspect of how On its face corrupt. The entire process was is Katherine Harris. Who is the Florida Secretary of state and in her role as the Florida? Secretary of State is responsible for oversight of the elections and the certification of the results but she's also the CO chair of Bush's campaign in Florida. And you want to understand what type of person she is that she's another type of important American political archetype which is You know there are movies. About where the protagonist is like a mother and the anti-communist is a woman who is extremely mean and Through sheer belligerence and force of will dominates the local PTA. Yes and she wears like a little too much makeup. And you're like she just seems like a force of nature just plowing through everything in front of her at to get whatever she wants and At the expense of the Children. Act which is why this and I think this this archetype was made famous a few years later with Sarah Palin. Who's like the real Embodiment of it. And then you had a couple of hours like Michele Bachmann But you know I think Katherine Harris is the first time. Pta Mom was always like on the political scene in American in American Life. So she was the one that oversaw the purging of the voter rolls right on the on the grounds that they were extensively. Fallon's even though maybe not and you know and she's the one that sort of starts over like is like in charge of the oversight of this process and was just nakedly corrupt and favouring Bush at every single step like not even trying a little bit to hide it rent which I mean you know. Her boss was Bush's brother and they're both you know. Republican minor minor. Point Governor of Florida can have good all right at the time. Florida law required that votes. Be Certified within seven days of the election so The Florida Circuit Court ruled that Counties had to certify their their results but they could amend at a later date At the Secretary of State Katherine Harris's discretion So what happened. Was she issued criteria for these late filings and she asked that the counties that were late in filing that they provide their justifications for why they relate. That sounds fair. Yeah no. We'll cheap proceeded to reject them all outright and declare that she's going to certify the results the next day anyway. Florida's Secretary of State Katherine Harris has announced that she is rejecting any further at the reasons given in their requests are insufficient to warrant waiver of the unambiguous filing deadline. It's her prerogative so right Yup. So okay the Florida. Supreme Court is then like Oh wait a minute there. They step in and they her from certifying those results which allows the the the recounts Continue Republicans of course are pissed and on December eighth Following a bunch of legal more legal bullshit the Florida Supreme Court ordered a statewide manual recount. Yeah and then that's where Bush petitions the Supreme Court Not For the first time during the case but for the first time that really matters I think to stay the recount and to halt the recount. This case what you need to do is show that if it proceeded would be irreparably harmed right right which is usually like a good example of irreparable harm is like someone is about to destroy like priceless antiques. Right they literally literally probably cannot be replaced You know and not a subject any monetary value. An court might be like all right. Don't do that because if you do it. We can't reverse it right. That's the whole point. So Supreme Court grants it. Despite the fact that there's almost no question that there's no real irreparable harm of allowing the the recount to continue the descent in that case which goes five to four Concert Know Republicans versus Democrats essentially says how can counting every vote be irreparable harm and Retort from the majority as well no no. That's not what we're saying. What we're saying. Is that if you accidentally count? Illegal votes non-legal votes that would be irreparable harm but doesn't make any sense at all you could just let let it continue. And then if you want to impose standards on it after the fact or scrapped the whole thing right. You could easily do that. It's the definition of reparable. Harm right you could just say no actually votes that are just dimples and not punched out. Chad's don't count. And they're all subtracted from the total and that's it you know after this happens. It seems pretty clear how the whole thing is about to shake out right because you still have the main case that essentially decides whether a recount will eventually continue That's coming up in a couple of days and now that this has gone five to four. It seems pretty clear that that's going to go five to four to ram so I've been thinking about this in. I thought I had about like. Why is she the stay that makes the most sense to me is? Is this you know? At one point. The margin was like seventeen hundred votes that game all the way down to like three hundred twenty votes or whatever and if you're sitting there saying well in four days we're GonNa say this recount is a no go. The last thing you want is in between now and then further results to switch right. You'd much rather affirming a very thin lead for Bush. Then saying that's actually. It's exactly why they did it right because they had the lead. So imagine you're a conservative justice. Who just so happened to one goal? And that's electing Republican president. What would you do? Bush has the lead now. You can't risk it you halt it right now. And then. Whatever decision you eventually make will be made under the presumption that Bush. The defacto winner read so that. That's sort of where their heads out with the stay. I think pretty clearly you know they need to essentially find a reason to invalidate the recount but also need to find the reason that the recount can't be restarted or redone. And that's kind of a problem because if there's a problem with the recount the obvious solution is to just fix it and count the votes. So how they do this. It's there are two pieces to it. One is they talk about the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment. And they need to do this. Because also these are all state laws So they really don't have any place to be weighing in on this in any event so they need to find a federal hook so the federal constitution says All citizens are guaranteed equal protection under the law and the Supreme Court says well Look Needy you count votes one way in one county and you recount them and other in another county that doesn't sound very equal to me completely wrong and just flies in the face of how elections are done when we're talking about different standards being used in different counties so during the recount. It's looking at the the voter I guess..
