Ralph Reed was, I mean, all these friends and it was amazing and lieutenant governor mark, was it Robinson, North Carolina, who's just a fighter. It was the whole thing was incredible. But I had to leave the next day because now this is the thing. I knew I was going to be in Pittsburgh because I spoke yesterday three times at grace life church pastor pastures book and Amy schaeffer invited me to speak here in Pittsburg because I was in Harrisburg. We met whatever ten days ago when I was in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. So they invited me to be here. And then I get a phone call from you, Alvin seda, telling me, hey Eric, Saturday, which was two days ago, when you're going to be in Pittsburgh, guess what's happening in that neck of the Woods. And I said, what's happening, Alban? I've been telling the people what was happening.

A Montage of John Fetterman's Debate Performance
"Here's a little Salem news channel Montage of the shocking moments in the John fetterman, Doctor Oz debate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania night before last. Hi, good night, everybody. He has never met an ear, an oil company that he doesn't swipe right about. It's about supporting and helping young earners. Young young students, to give them a break, I believe that supporting I do support fracking and all right, I support fracking and I stand and I do support fracking. I believe China is not our friend and I believe that we can't be able to push back. Our next star poll shows 51% of Pennsylvania voters disapprove of the president's job performance. You have publicly supported many of his policy positions. Are there any that you disagree with 30 seconds? No, I just believe he needs to do more about supporting and fighting about inflation, going through this kind of emotional schools, able to create a career to Wayne reach a lot of high salary and supporting reduce those costs are critical to. His family's company was, it was levy, the largest fine for in hiring of immigrate illegals. Now, again, this is unprecedented. We've never seen anybody run for office at this level in this condition. Here was Brit humes take Britt Hume over at Fox News has been around a long time and he was on TV last night. Telling Brett bear, he's never seen anything like it.
So What Is John Fetterman's Stance on Fracking?
"If you didn't see this debate, you better buckle in right now. Because this was an nothing's edited here. This is unedited. This happened in real time last night on a debate stage in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This is an important issue for Pennsylvania's. Western PA, they know all about the importance of fracking. Of course, politically, fetterman does too. There's only a little problem with that. He has said he's opposed to fracking. So the local debate moderators, well, they happen to ask him about the absolute flip flop. In a 2018 interview, you said quote, I don't support fracking at all. I never have. But earlier this month, you told an interviewer quote, I support fracking, I support the energy independence that we should have here in the United States. So mister fetterman, please explain your changing position 60 seconds. I've always supported fracking and I always believe that independence with our energy is critical and we can't be held ransom to somebody like Russia. I've always believed that energy independence is critical and I've always believed that and I do support fracking. I've never taken any money from their industry, but I support how critical it is that we produce our own energy and create energy independence. I must correct the record. Just a second, mister Oz, I do want to clarify something. You're saying tonight that you support fracking that you've always supported fracking. But there is that 2018 interview that you said quote, I don't support fracking at all. So how do you square the two? Oh. I do support fracking. And all right, I support fracking, and I stand and I do support fracking.

Lieutenant governor John fetterman started off to shearing voters he still capable of doing the job of senator 5 months after having a stroke. I might miss some worries during this debate. Two words together, but it knocked me down, but I'm going to keep coming back up. The two clashed on abortion. I don't want the federal government involved with that at all.

Abortion and crime, the focus in a one time debate in New York's governor's race, Republican Lee zeldin is challenging incumbent Kathy hochul. People who are afraid of being pushed in front of oncoming subway cars. They're being stabbed, beaten to death on the street with hammers. I think about getting the guns off the streets.

Katie Hopkins Describes the Magic of a Recent Event in PA
"To Katie Hopkins. Katie Hopkins, you're talking to me. We're talking to each other. And you bring this lovely red, red, red dress. And hooray, hooray, hooray for us being together again. So I was just in Pennsylvania, a few days ago, and going there. Tomorrow, to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Yeah, and some lovely ladies came up to me. There's 4500 people in the audience. And at the end, I was there for a few hours cuddling everybody. And some people came up and they went, last time I saw you, Katie, you were with Eric metaxas. Really? And I was like, that sounds lovely. Well, you so what sort of event were you doing in Pennsylvania? Yes, I was at a reawaken event with Jen Flynn. And clay Clark. So these are all the heroes. But you know what was so nice about it is never the people on the stage. I'm not really a speaker up there. We're very privileged to have that speaking slot. But what matters so much more is the people in the audience. And the fact that you see them, they come in and they look around and they can't believe how many people are in the room. You see their little shoulders go down and their little, you just see people just relax and think, oh, here I am. I'm not crazy. There are other people who love America. What's happening? I'm not alone. And one of the most clever things of lockdown in the COVID nonsense and all the rest of it is and the media is this push to make people believe they're alone. So their own children no longer speak to them, or their disinvited from the synagogue or the church. And then they get into these rooms with 4500 people and they go, oh. Yeah. Look at us. Yeah. And then once you get the noise going, it's my little hairs on my arms stand on end. Once you get that noise going, it is such that to me is the plugging in of the electricity into our side.

Sen. Doug Mastriano Addresses the Key Issues Facing the Keystone State
"Said Doug master yano that this is looking like a record year for homicides in Pennsylvania. This is under Josh Shapiro. How long has he been in this position? He's been our attorney general for 6 years and on top of all this Eric. Of course, the Democrat playbook is dull debate your opponents call them names and then pretend you're a champion of women rights. So we passed a bill out of the house and Senate and General Assembly in June. To protect female athletes from being dominated by men, you know, to defend females from male domination in their sports. And of course, Josh Pierre fought against that and he rejoiced when governor won't be to that Bill. To make matters worse, this time last year, Josh appeared fought to allow boys and the girls bathroom. I'm sorry to allow boys and the girls bathroom in Pennsylvania. And then on top of all that, he sued in an amicus, Virginia. This time last year, that happened where boys were allowed into girls bathroom. This time last year in loudoun county, a girl was raped. This time last year, the dad found up a school board covering up and then he went to the school board to confront them and he was hauled out handcuffs. Josh Shapiro was on the wrong side of all the issues that mattered of Pennsylvania. And so the contrast was very stark. You have the continuation of radical, dangerous policies on a Josh Shapiro, or a new birth of freedom. And I'm using those words cautiously. Those are from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg address here. But we need a new birth of freedom. We need the power to return back into the hands of the people rather than a centralized approach in Harrisburg.

"Leg power. I can afford leg power. But the competition, we're maxing out tournaments. We have a 200 angler max on our tournaments. And we've been maxing out a lot of them this year. You know, last year in places where we had a 120 anglers show up. We had 200 anglers and a waiting list. So the sport you're right, it is. It is growing big time, the term side of it is growing. Big time because we all have this push in this need and this desire for competition. Not everybody, but you start getting out there and you see how big voter tournaments are and people want to do they want to keep what the competition and kayaks offer you the best bet to go and do that. So we are seeing growth there, but we're also seeing an influx of people just really wanting to get out on the water. Kayak sales have been through the roof. They haven't been able to keep a lot of them in stock and plus with the shortage of manufacturing during COVID with you can't just can't get parts for things. You know, there has been a shortage of kayaks. And so when people can get them, they're using them. And I see a lot more of them out there on the water every day. Every time I'm out there. So it's really encouraging to me to see people go out there and do that. And that's really near to my heart, building kayak tournaments because I love competition. That's the warrior mentality. I call it of me. I want to go into battle somehow some way. And we created the hobie tournaments because it was a tournament that we wanted to fish. And then my friend AJ mcwhorter can run in those the last four years and then this year I've stepped back in to help tournament direct some of those, you know, that's where I'm at right now. Susquehanna river and Pennsylvania right outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and we have a sold out tournament coming up at the end of the month. So we'll have 200 anglers out floating down the Susquehanna river.

Kathy Barnette Reacts to Trump Endorsement for Dr. Oz
"So tell me a little bit about your reaction to president Trump's endorsement of Doctor Oz because a lot of people were flabbergasted. Some dumbfounded some angry and some said, okay, I'll vote for us. What was Kathy Barnett's reaction? Well, I mean, you know, initially, it was a shock, right? I mean, I was downtown Philadelphia. I've been working with the Horn of Africa. There's those who will have come here from the Horn of Africa. There's over a 100,000 of those from sedans, Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, who live here at Pennsylvania, highly concentrated between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. I've been working with them for several months. They hosted a very large fundraiser for me this past Saturday, and we were registered every single person changing their registration from Democrat to Republican. That's what I was doing. And someone turned on their phone and showed me what Donald Trump had done, and of course my initial reaction was like, oh my goodness, definitely know he's not really a conservative. But very quickly thereafter, I saw when a lot of people are seeing and that is across social media, my name is on everyone's list. So like I said, I started off.

Pennsylvania School Board Member Calls Parents 'Village Idiots'
"There's this incredible op-ed that was written by Richard Robinson. Which is probably never heard of him before. I hadn't either until this story came out. He is a school board member on the York suburban school district board. That is in York county, Pennsylvania. Now, I know your county better than most. It is not a suburb of Philadelphia. It's out about a little bit west of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It's in a more rural part of Pennsylvania. It's about an hour and a half north of Baltimore is where York is. And not far from Harrisburg. The state capitol. Well, this school board member, Richard Robinson, wrote a op-ed an opinion piece. He said, no, I do not work for you parents. York suburban school district board member, Richard Robinson wrote an op-ed. He said that the ability to be able to show up to school board meetings is the following. The provision gives residents of a school district the chance to vent their spleens about exorbitant taxes or demand subjects be taught properly the way they were during the most frigid period of the Civil War. In the past, more often than not nobody showed up, but not these days as social media outlets and national news broadcasts and our local newspapers tell us school boards are now the new battleground in the fight for America's future amen they are. This bothers Richard Robinson, he says parents who show up and give public comment have, quote, the collective intelligence of a village idiot. Now remember, this guy wrote this. He's not some mistake. It's not some caught on camera Mike. No, he wrote this in an opinion piece. Some members of my community. Here is my community. Appear to interpret this part of broad board meetings as the occasion to tell board members, why they have the collective intelligence of village idiot, and how the school district ought to be addressing real problems. He continues by saying far too many elected officials have shown over the past two years that the consent of the governed is a little more than an inconvenient speed bump on the road to advancing their unpopular agendas. Mocking and dismissing the concerns of community may be cathartic for petty dictators, but it's not a path to electoral success. This is what Nicole Neely said in response to Richard Robinson. She said that and she runs the parents defending education. This article continues. Richard Robinson by saying, with all due respect to the men and women who come up to me and say, I'm a taxpayer you work for me. Robinson the school board member says, no, I don't. I don't work for you. I was elected by the people who voted to represent you. What? No, so I don't work for you. I was elected by the people who voted to represent you.

We're not gonna tell anybody about this total blackout on what you did Tuesday. Total blackout. They do not want this catching on that the citizens can actually insist their governors be held accountable because they might pull that off in Michigan. They might pull that out. You know, we always think of New York is Deep blue, but it's only deep blue because of Manhattan. It's deep blue because of Long Island that's deep blue because of just one chunk. Where the population resides. But most of New York is a lot like Pennsylvania deeply red. Very conservative. There's whole chunk whole swaths of California that is the same. In fact, in the Pacific Northwest, they're talking right now about carving off. Whole chunks of Oregon. There's a movement right now you may or may not have heard of. I love it. This just titillates me to no end. It excites me What's happening in this country? It's it's federalism on steroids. It's wonderful. You've got these conservative counties in Oregon. On someone, even California but certainly organ specifically that have gone to Idaho. And they're like, Hey, Idaho. We want to join you. And we redraw the state boundaries so that we're not part of Idaho because we like the way Idaho Runs. We don't want to be a part of Oregon anymore, and there's an honest effort right now. In sight of Idaho to try toe annex per their approval. Obviously chunka Oregon now Oregon, of course, would never allow something like that happened. But I love the conversation. There's a total realignment happening on steroids in this country. People are moving where they want to live where people are free. People are fleeing the Northeast and they're moving down toe. Rhonda Sanders is Florida. Counties in Oregon are saying we want out of this. Dumpster fire. We want to join a conservatively run state like Idaho next door. It's beautiful. It's as designed. It's the way it ought to be. And this is what the press and the Democrats hate. They don't want this catching on. They don't like this idea of citizens rising up and saying No, you don't get governor to tell us what to do endlessly. In a pandemic. At some point, you're gonna have to be accountable to us and we get to tell you what to do. It's consent of the governed. Got it. This is all good stuff. There's a lot of reason to be very optimistic. Even in the midst of the mess that we find ourselves in inside Washington, D C. With Grandpa and the Shadow government of Barack Obama Re ducks. There's a lot of optimism to be found in the respective states out here even here in Pennsylvania, despite what happened in November. I'm I don't know. I'm or optimistic in a better mood here on this Friday heading into the weekend that I've been in a long time. You could see it. It was like, Didn't you notice that this week? I don't know. Maybe you didn't. Maybe it's just me and it's my attitude, but Like Wah Wah. Now why was officially on the record saying You come in here. Without a mask will assume you're vaccinated. That that happened like that. And other businesses. You're hearing it now. Everybody in Pennsylvania now suddenly has decided. If you're vaccinated, you can come in without a mask. Well, with the exception of the reprobates in Philadelphia and that government, but okay, setting them aside. Everybody else. Companies operating inside the Commonwealth. They're all saying, Look, we're okay. Now we're safe. They said they need one of my thing. Saying when we assert ourselves as the citizenry We have a tremendous amount of, say. These businesses all operated out of fear of one little balding, slope shouldered, mediocre loser. Called Tom Wolfe. They all operated in total, abject fear of him. Because we had an impotent legislature that couldn't stop him with a Supreme Court that fully backed him, and it seemed a citizenry who was willing to comply with his every order. So what businesses do to stay out of trouble. Whatever you want. Whatever you want. They were all held hostage. The second Tuesday happened in the second. That vote was counted in the second, We learned that the citizenry said no more the Republican Legislature has to sign off on what you're doing. Going forward. It was like a Cloud was lifted like this huge burden was lifted off of business owners shoulders and you can see it. You can see it and people all over. I see it in my kid's softball game. See it in bars and restaurants. I see it around. Town masks are off, people are smiling again. Why not? Because some government official did it, folks. You did it. We did it. We took control consent of the governed to beautiful thing. And that's where we'll leave it. It is a beautiful thing..

"When you look at this executive branch of Pennsylvania, I don't have glowing things to say about it. I mean, how do you look at the Wolf Administration? Federman Shapiro and the like. And I mean eyes. Is this about turnout going forward? How are these people rewarded that. How can the Republicans not make hay here? I don't know, because I mean, if you got you got people sitting around and cities like Philadelphia and some of the other places where Vaccines not getting out to them. The schools are closed, even though they're open in other places, and private schools are open. You know, there's there's just failure up and down, and I think Wolf ran initially, as you know, the Businessman who's going to make government run efficiently. You know, like a lot of business. Better run for governor do Has been the case. I mean, he hired a lot of political hacks like Levin and book far who have just not been up to the task. You know, Whatever else you think of their politics. They weren't good at their jobs. That's the one thing Wolf was supposed to be. Better at than the usual machine politician. Are there any in your mind? Front runner Republicans legitimate, challenging front runner gubernatorial possibilities. I mean, like people that you think we have a problem because here's what I think Republicans. Typically I see that run statewide. They seem to be kind of Names. No one knows that maybe have a lot of money or or business acumen. They come from the private sector and never really gained any traction aren't particularly exciting. The business community might throw a couple of bucks of them, but they certainly don't bring anybody out, and there's always some sort of establishment. Machine Democrat that seizes the day is that I would love to break that mold. Are we going to this time? Well, we did a little better, and it didn't get talked about much in 2020. But we won the other there General and the state treasurer races for the first time and Think, 10 years and 16 years respectively. So that there would you know, before that everything statewide was Was held by a Democrat, except for the one U S Senate seat, So I think there's you know, there is the beginnings of ah of a rebuilding, but, yeah, I think we've got to make sure it's somebody who can. Not just win in the deepest of Republican areas. He's got to be able to talk to moderates and tell him Why he's better than the mess that is in Harrisburg. Right now, at least That is going for whoever it is he or she will be able to say. Democrats are screwing up pretty badly. I can do better. But, yeah, I mean, it's also with the Senate race complicates. Think of some of probably our best can that they're gonna want to go for that.

Tough guy who just came off of assembly line somewhere. Yeah. You see Frida, middle class guy with the private colleges and you know he was mayor of that downtrodden town out West, but he didn't From there. He's for it from Suburbs reading, I believe Yes. So what are we to make of him? I mean, he had real threat because he looks. I don't know anything about him other than he looks every time I see him on MSNBC's wearing a hoody against a brick wall. Yeah, he wants what we want to look like with the goatee. Yes, sort of a hipster. Tough guy. I don't know what he's going for. And you know, he's got quite a look Easy, easy, Enormous. He's got this weird could take. But, you know, uh, I don't like that once people listening talk It's pretty far left, and I don't think the kind of even this kind of like suburban moderate Democrats who voted for Biden this time, I don't know if they want to. Lined up with this guy, but what you can't do, Kyle, would you agree? You can't you just You? I to me. I mean, you know, maybe it's not a trump figure, but it certainly can't be a Romney figure to go up against him. Can it No. I mean, I think I don't think you can. You know, re create the coalition that elected Arlen Specter e don't think that exists anymore. At least not. Maybe the Democrats doesn't like somebody like that.

"Of it happening. I'm sure it has historical president. But We talked about it actually, yesterday here on the show. The Senate. In Harrisburg did not seat Someone that the Secretary of state anyway in Pennsylvania. Certified as the winner of a Senate election. Ultimately, the Senate did not recognize this individual as the winner of that Senate seat. There was a legal question as to whether or not this incumbent was the winner. In fact, the Republican majority recognized based on their interpretation of the law. And the election rules the Republican challenger as the winner. I think I don't want to miss speak better to bring in our next guest, Jake Corman, who is the new Pennsylvania senator, Senate President Pro TEM. Senator Corman. Thanks for your time this morning. Hi. Good morning. How are you? I'm well, thanks. This was a really unusual event. But I have to say I really commend you and your fellow senators for calmly asserting yourselves. You clearly stood on principle and on Merit and not standing here. I mean, you you guys looked at the law and you, You felt it was incorrect to seat the incumbent Democrat there in the 45th district. Here. The decision was made not to see anybody, even though the secretary of state certified, uh, Democrat Jim Brewster is the winner. There was just open federal lawsuit, but actually, we hope to hear this morning on But the case was it made confusing, and the funny part is there's really no disputed facts. It's not about voter fraud or whatever. It's about votes at Allegheny County. Decided to count that 60. Some kinds of Pennsylvania did not count which were absentee ballots that did not have they gone. The law is very clear. That if you vote by s until you needed to sign and date The about and if you didn't it was disqualified And actually, the secretary of state put out guidance prior to the election by the dude bows would not count, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled. Back, spare being the the top Democrat on the country in spring quarter. This opinion said any correction of disqualified ballots is a matter for the Legislature, not the cords. On both of those rolled in the fire priority like him that those ballots will not count. After the election. They both rolled. They switched the position and rose do about should count and then therefore, he gave Senator Brewster, the Democrat from a deficit to elite. After the ballots were counted by Allegany County. Now the Senate district encompasses two counties West more than and Allegheny Westmoreland like 60 some other counties because they do not counting house because they're not allowed to be counted. S So, um, You know, there's a case before the federal Court of Equal Protection looks like Bush V. Gore, but she can't have different standards in different counties throughout the state. On Soto that was worked out in a couple other things. We decided not to see anybody on then once the courts world, um ultimately, the Senate is empowered by the Constitution on Article two section, dying to be the final arbiter of elections and qualifications for its own members. And then Walter me make a decision. Senator Coleman on kind of another matter kind of kind of a broader general matter on die Don't you know I don't I don't mean to make you speak for the entire legislative body. And I really appreciate you being here. And so I want to be respectful and not sound like I'm piling on him beating beating you up. I'm really careful, Toby. Be fair and not unfair. But it's obvious on you've certainly heard it. I'm sure from your constituents and all across the country. We've been in the white hot glare of a spotlight The through this election cycle for what happened. I know. Ultimately, the Legislature Ended up petitioning Congress to not certify the electors. Given the disputes that went on with the vote count here, Do you think as you kind of back away from it and kind of take the 30,000 ft view of the way theologian went in Pennsylvania. Well rather than I even asked that Let me just ask. What is your read of the way the election win in Pennsylvania. That's the simpler question. The problem we had was the executive branch and the judicial branch. Of our government in Pennsylvania, sort of teamed up against legislative branch time manner in place of election just to turn by the Legislature obviously signed by the governor. And we passed a bill in October of 2019 to make some changes our election code to open up opportunities for people to vote me, man. May I jump in and they're up to that point and like just to start there Do you in hindsight, and I know we have the luxury of hindsight. That was an innocuous thing at the time. That was pre coverted knowing all we know now, do you regret that? And do you think that the Republicans kind of inn in Mass collectively now wish that she'd never even done that given all we know now? Well, now we know how the executive Branch Wolf Administration exported that piece of legislation. I would have to say yet the legislation itself was good legislation. Unfortunately, the secretary of state what she did under the guise of governor Tom Wolfe. Knock down all the security barriers that we had and voting by absentee knocked down this. You know, these are all in long before it and they knocked down signature verification.

They're completely procedurally within their right to do with the doing. They've well researched this. What's exciting to me about this folks is they researched it. They came to play. This is what six and I know. Forgive me. There may be some of you. Thinking's to go, which is stop getting so excited about them actually doing their jobs. I e would love to not be this excited, but they've never done their jobs before. So you've got to, You know, it's like when your kid hits his first ball off a tee. Yeah, you've got to encourage them. So they do it again, You know? You've got this. It's like you're helping your toddler walk. They've got to. They've got to walk before they run. So you've got to encourage and I'm serious.

He doesn't belong in elected office. We'll have to treat him with that. Lieutenant governor. Okay? They removed the lieutenant governor. He did. My 15 year old son is more credible is lieutenant governor than that reparable eight. They threw him out of there. Like Yeah, I should be thrown out just because of who he is. But anyway So they're going to make these Republicans out to be just lunatics. Outrageous What they did know they were within their right. You see, this is the point. This is what we've been saying all along. This is what the late great justice, Scalia said, and I will never ever Forget this. Was blessed and privileged. And I say that not to brag in any way. I mean it. I found it to be now. As I look back on this. It was a real blessing and a privilege in my life. That just before he died several months before he died. I was fortunate enough to attend a private dinner with him at the Union League. And the only reason I bring that up is again not to say it in some sort of ostentatious or braggadocious way It was because of what I learned at this dinner. He said something so significant and important to me, and I had never really internalized it before. And it may not even sound that profound to you. But it was profound to me because I'd never considered it. I have been so custom in my life to a Congress that's done nothing. I've just been so accustomed to limp wristed loser Republicans. I've just been so used to it. And it was clear that gave me this kind of epiphany. This wake up where, he said. You know, it's not supposed to be this way. Nine UN elected people in black robes are not supposed to be the power of center in this country. We don't want it. We don't deserve it. We haven't earned it. It's not supposed to be this way. It used to be. It should be. It was designed to be that the £800 gorilla of power. Is the Legislature. Not the executive. That's a judicial, the legislative body. They're the ones that cut the checks. They're the ones that make the laws. They're the power center. Anymore. You wouldn't know that anymore. Would you? Not at the state level, not at the federal level, they're virtually worthless. And it was really and I know that's not that may be profound to you, but to me it was like it was such an Ah ha! Of course. Of course he's right. So what is this? What am I saying? What I'm saying is you have a legislature in Harrisburg, and I said to you about this election of 2020 and going forward, the fight has got to be in our state's capitals. It's got to be about our legislature. It's got to be about about our Republican legislatures reasserting themselves and saying no, damn it, we control boundary drawing. We run elections, Not the effing Supreme Court, not the governor, not the secretary of state. We run elections and you don't tell us how elections go. We tell you how they go. We've been elected directly by the citizens of Pennsylvania. We do this. You don't do it. We do it there. The £800 gorilla. They have the power. They haven't asserted it. And so yesterday when they do it. It was like orgasmic. I don't smoke, and I wanted to light a cigarette as I listen to this now what? You're going to hear the screaming Screaming you're going to hear is not from the Republicans. This is what happens when evil gets wet. It's like when the witch gets whipped and Wizard of Oz it Xeni classic scene where evil is confronted Garlic daggers, You know, you watch horror films Eddie. Anytime Evil is confronted its shrieks and screams in horror. Anthony Williams is who you're hearing shrieking here now, the Republicans. Very cool hand, Luke. They're just reading procedurally. What? They're perfectly within their legal right to do. We're not certifying this guy. We're not ceding this guy. No, we're not doing it. You're gonna hear Democrats Senator Anthony Williams screaming his fool head off. About this and that and what's constitutional and what's not, and the Republicans just steely. Continue right on as they remove the nineties GarageBand wannabe pothead. From The Senate chambers. It's a thing to behold. Listen to this. As interim president, Pro TEM Pary of the Senate Emotion.

I always like to start off by asking. I guess to tell a little bit about themselves. So if you can k- Right now i'm the host of foul players radio. That's f o w l like the bird It's named after my murder. Mystery company called the foul players of perryville. Perryville is where. I live in maryland. Were about fifty miles northeast of baltimore. The reason why we make that ton or whatever you would say it would be for. Foul is because The town i live in is right on the susquehanna river which is known for its multiple species of waterfowl people. They have actual waterfowl museums ear to talk about that stuff so we figured it'd be a nice play on words for foul play my head. The murder mystery company for a couple of years. Now we perform on boats and on trains office parties and vineyards and whoever have us. I also am a musician. I right now have an acoustic duo. That i've had for about fifteen years and we're kind of comedy act sort of similar to the smothers brothers. It's two of us. We play acoustic guitars and the humor isn't as much when with the banter between us as it is with the humor's actually in songs so that's called. The uncle moldy show. And we perform a in the maryland area a wide knob sometimes in pennsylvania to most recently. You may know me as the viking. And the jim what worth commercials while riding around on the bus. I was the big viking. That came out of the back You've also seen me this year on kimmy versus the reverend if you haven't seen that movie it's based on the unbreakable kimmy schmidt and it's there's a scene where kimmy and tight us. The two main characters are way out in the country and they come into a bar. There's a leonard skinner ban. they're playing. And i'm the bartender in there. I won't give away the movie. But it's an interactive movie but no matter what choices you make in the movie. You always get to see me. So that's the good part about it. You know it's it's not like that movie revolved around me or anything like that We have been nominated nominated for a couple of emmys I believe it was for best special perhaps and then Titus burgess has been nominated for an emmy for male performance. I believe as well. I'm excited about that. I'm also appeared on gotham. I wish unseasoned. Five episode eight played one of the penguins henchman named dale. I was shot to death in the third scene. I was in. And i've also done a number of discovery. Id shows and some mom commercials down here in maryland. When i was starting out and everything. I'm also years ago. I was in the hair bands of the eighties. I had a big hairband back. In those days. I had a band that was kind of more like the call to little bit. After that when the hairband started going out we were called orange seed parade we played. Cbgb's in new york a number of times. And you know open for a couple of national acts over the years. So yes so. That's me in a nutshell so we can get a little more specific if you like Depending well you know the first thing that you said that caught my ear was the susquehanna river and i was thinking of that old. Avidan castillo routine about the susquehanna company. All right right squad at company there may have been years ago but the majority of there's only a couple of miles of the susquehanna bets in maryland and it actually goes all the way up to near upstate new york so there could be something on the way you know that river goes through lancaster and harrisburg and it goes quite a ways up. I believe almost up to upstate. New york if it doesn't start up there somewhere along the line. I'm sure there was and with your murder mystery troop you. You're an actor in the troupe. Right yes i am. Yeah okay so basically your book like for parties and stuff like that and there's someone who's been killed in they have to figure out if it's you or one of your co stars did it. Yeah yeah exactly. Exactly exac- i'm normally the detective and the host i'm normally the host and the narrator at the beginning and i have a row i have roster i would save about fifteen or twenty really good actors from this area here and we we kind of rotate. We were on trains. One of our biggest clients is the western maryland. Scenic railroad all. the way out and cumberland. That's all the way out. The panhandle of maryland out west year west virginia.

Mount felix winery a lot of the tasting rooms where they have events and trains and boats and office parties corporate events. Whoever will have us
Federal judge dismisses Trump campaign Pennsylvania lawsuit
"A federal judge in Pennsylvania is thrown out a lawsuit from the Trump campaign seeking to block state officials from certifying the state's election results. It showed Democrat Joe Biden want Emily Property is with member station W I T F. She reports on the order issued last night dismissing the case. Trump's campaign claimed it was disadvantaged because Philadelphia and six majority Democratic counties let voters correct technical problems with mail in ballots and Republican majority counties did not. U. S. District Judge Matthew Brand noted in his order that the campaign sued Democratic Secretary of State Kathy Book far and heavily Democratic counties, but did not suit GOP dominant jurisdictions where ballots were allegedly thrown out without giving voters a chance to correct similar problems. Ran wrote The campaign's legal arguments were without merit and its accusations were speculative and on supported by evidence. For NPR News. I'm Emily property in Harrisburg president's legal team says it will appeal the decision. More Republicans so urging President Trump to drop his challenges. Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey issued a statement last night, saying President Trump should accept the outcome of the election in North Dakota, Senator Kevin Cramer told NBC this morning.

Newt Gingrich and the Start of an Era
"This feels like an episode out of like not just a recent. It's not the recent past. Past the distant past I mean newt is still with us, but this is a very different time for newt, and I think that for many people he started to really appear on People's radars outside of Georgia in the early ninety s with a contract for America, but your book predates that so the book starts in the Nineteen Eighties when you Gingrich. Is this young? Young Congressman who comes from Georgia. He's elected in Nineteen, seventy eight, and any comes to Washington ready to just tear everything down to shake things up to do whatever necessary to help. Republicans become a majority in the House of Representatives which they had not been since nineteen fifty four, and he's intent on a not listening to senior members of the Party and to really. Really taking on the Democrats in ways that they had not been comfortable with, and so he makes a name for himself very quickly, even though he's not part of the leadership in the early eighties. Okay, so you're a history. Professor Newt Gingrich Thought of himself as a history professor and was a history professor, but what exactly did he teach? How did his academic career? Career fit in with his political career well, he received his PhD until Lane. After attending undergraduate school in Emory and Gingrich wrote his dissertation on Belgian colonialism, and he wrote about how and why colonial government had failed to modernize local education and nurture an elite that was capable of sustaining economic growth, and what was remarkable about the dissertation in retrospect, which is what he spent. Spent his academic time on was that he was critical of the design of Belgian policies, rather than on the merits of colonialism, which were much less interest to him, but but that wasn't really his his main focus. I mean as soon as he gets to West Georgia College. That's his first job as a professor. He's deeply uninterested in the academic life I think in. In his first year as a professor, he applies to be the president of the university. He then wants to be share the department and he's impatient with the slowness of academia He quickly gains a thirst for the life of politics, and that's really what engages him, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy four. He decides to run against the incumbent in his district. District John Flint who's an old southern Democrat. What are nudes politics like growing up? Because he conservative early on, and did his conservative ideology remained consistent throughout his life. Yeah, he comes from a working class family. The family's originally from Harrisburg. His father left his mother while she was pregnant with him, so he didn't have much of a relationship with him. He is raised. primarily by his stepfather, who's in the military, so Gingrich spends a lot of his youth travelling around. He's what we call an Army Brat, and lives in different places in Europe before the family finally settles in Georgia, which is the final stop? He's a Rockefeller Republican during the nineteen sixties. He he is conservative, but he is interested in Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller and then Richard Nixon who had ambitions of building a big Republican coalition as FDR had done for Democrats in the Nineteen Thirties. He doesn't really make a hard right. Right, turn until about nineteen seventy five I'm what prompts that well. He ran for the first time unsuccessfully in nineteen, seventy, four against flint. Then he's getting ready to run against Flint again in nineteen seventy six, and he meets some people associated with the conservative movement like Paul Way Rick. Who's running these camps for up and coming Republicans and he like many young Republicans starts to become enamored with what's this conservative movement that's bubbling up in America and talking about the need to dismantle government to be much more aggressive on national. National Security and this is when he starts to shift to what will eventually be the Reagan Revolution? Would you say that his guiding principles were firmly aligned with Reagan conservatism, or were there differences there? There were differences. Gingrich for example is much more concerned about environmental issues even in the early nineteen eighties than a lot of Reagan Nights, are he? He actually takes those kinds of policies much more seriously, but generally he lines up by the time he's in the house. He believes in tax cuts. He believes in deregulation. Deregulation, he believes importantly in a very muscular approach to fighting the Soviet Union and to fighting allies in places like Central America so though there are differences between him, and and some of the hard core inner circle of the Reagan administration. Generally they line up pretty well
The Supreme Court has turned away pleas from anti-abortion activists to make it easier for them to protest outside clinics
"This is a pre courts declined to hear an appeal from anti abortion activists we would hope to be able to bring their protests closer to abortion clinics there were two cases brought to the nation's highest court where activists from Chicago in Harrisburg Pennsylvania we're hoping to get local rules lifted on buffer zones to protect clients which prevent protesters from demonstrating too close to health facilities without further comment the justices said they wouldn't hear the cases this follows Monday's ruling against a Louisiana law that required hospital admitting privileges for abortion providers but the justices have ordered lower courts to revisit fetal ultrasound and parental notification cases in Indiana previously blocked by lower courts but now the Supreme Court's defined how to determine if a restriction is permissible or creates an unconstitutional obstacle for women Jackie Quinn Washington
Why the racism in facial recognition software probably cant be fixed
"Been proven that facial recognition software isn't good at accurately identifying people of Color. We also know that police departments around the country use facial recognition tools to identify suspects and make arrests, and now we know about what is possibly the first confirmed wrongful arrest made as a result of mistaken identification by software. The New York Times reported last week. That Robert Williams a black man was wrongfully arrested in Detroit in January. Joy Berlin. We has been researching this topic for years as a computer scientist based at the MIT. Media Lab and Head of the nonprofit Algorithm ICK Justice League. She says like racism. Algorithm make bias is systemic. This is not a case of one bad algorithm. What we're seeing is a reflection of systemic racism in automated tools like artificial intelligence right now where gambling with people's faces. Faces and homework gambling with people's faces were gambling with democracy I mean it does seem like awareness and policy around facial recognition are starting to catch up if slowly, but what more needs to happen, is that the role of companies alone to not offer the software, or is it the role of governments to stop police departments from using this technology? We can't leave it to. To companies to self regulate while we have three that have come out to that back from facial recognition technology still have major players who supplies h recognition technology to a law enforcement. We absolutely need lawmakers, so we don't have to accept this narrative. That technology is already out there. There's nothing we can do. We have a voice. We have a choice what we are pushing. Pushing for with the Algorithm Justice League is a federal law that bans face surveillance across the nation, so I am encouraged by the latest bill I've seen a from Congress so I would highly encourage support of that bill so that at least across the country there are some base level protections. You wrote this post. The ended with the line. Racial Justice Requires Algorithm Justice. Given that humans right the algorithms, this is sort of the the constant question. How can that be accomplished algorithm justice? I mean sure so when we're talking about our MC justice, it's really this question about having a choice having a voice and having accountability, and so what we're seeing with this wild wild west approach to deploying facial recognition technology for surveillance is the lack of choice. Lack of consent, and so when we're thinking about Algorithm, make justice it is this question about who has power and who has a voice in. It needs to be the voice of the people when we're talking about racial justice, the reason racial justice requires Algorithms Mc. Justice is increasingly we have. Tools that are being used to determine who gets hired who gets fired who get stopped or arrested by the police, what kind of medical treatment you might receive where your children can go to school, and so and so much as a I is increasingly governing and serving as the gatekeeper to economic opportunities educational opportunities. We can't get to a racial justice without thinking about Algorithm mic justice. Technology companies are so sure that there must be a way to make the technology work and make it work largely for good. and I wonder if you think the events of the past month have really changed whether they keep working on this technology or whether they might actually start to see the the real limitations that you have seen I along. Companies respond to the pressure of the people, and I want to emphasize that the announcement for IBM to stop selling facial recognition technology for Amazon to do a one year moratorium an for Microsoft to not sell to law enforcement came after the cold blooded murder of George Floyd protest in the streets, years of employees activism. We have a responsibility to think about. How do we create equitable and accountable systems, and sometimes what that means is you don't create the tool. Joy Bologna as a computer scientists at the MIT media lab, but speaking of tools we should not create researchers at Harrisburg University last week said they've created facial recognition software that can actually predict crime. We already know what could go wrong.
