Novelist Donald Ray Pollock On Factory Work And Finding Fiction Later In Life
"Today's first guest is author Donald Ray Pollock, whose novel the devil all the time has just been made into a new netflix movie premiering next Wednesday. It Stars Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson, and here's a taste in this clip. A young boy has just watched his father pulverized two guys after they made lewd comments about the father's wife, the son's mother. Afterward the father gives his son some advice. You remember what I told you. On. The buzzer gave you. That's what I mean. got. To. Sir. Good sons of bitches out there. One hundred. These that many. Cannonball. In, both the movie and the novel the characters in the devil all the time are driven to extremes whether their fathers and sons, serial killers or preachers. The story begins in the small town of knock him stiff a real place in southern Ohio where Donald Ray pollock grew up. He didn't become a writer until he put in over thirty years at the local paper mill and got sober. But. Once he did start writing. He was noticed quickly receiving both awards and critical. Acclaim. Terry, gross spoke to Donald Ray pollock in twenty eleven when the devil, all the time was first published. Donald, Ray pollock welcome to fresh air. I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.
"holler" Discussed on It's All Political
"Let's talk about Senator Harris for minute You know for those of us who've seen go here in the bay area from an innate, pretty much eighteen years from being an assistant district attorney to. Possibly the White House as vice president But one of the first call she made before she decided to run for district attorney or in San Francisco was to your predecessor. Steel at the the organization that you are. Now ahead of emerge here in San Francisco walked people through what that what happened when she she called Artiukhov she she knew Andrea and their friends and and walk us through that that conversation that they had. Yes. So we actually like to say that center Harris's story really is the story of emerge. What we like to see at emerge Andrea and several other women supported Kamla during her first race asked Da and when they were helping her out, they realized that there was no place for women to go to get training on how to run for office Adam Merge I say we demystify the process of running for office and they wanted to see more. Women in office in San Francisco in California more women like Kamla and she was an inspiration for them to start emerge, and we started in two thousand two with emerged. California our first affiliate in two thousand and five emerge America was created to replicate the program across the country because it became so successful and now were in twenty seven states and we. Trained over four thousand women, to, run for office, we currently have almost eight hundred serving an office and over seven hundred that are running this year. So it's really great to know that Senator Harris was an inspiration for the work that we do today and we were very excited when the news came out that Vice President Biden has selected her because her. Trajectory is just inspiring to women to go from D. A. to Attorney General to a senator to now be the first black and Indian woman on a major party ticket as a vice presidential candidate. That's what we WANNA see. That should be the path for women and I think she is a great example of how to do that and how to be effective. What is the effect would affect? Does that had I know it's only been a few weeks now on on recruiting for for your organization and what does it of having her on the ticket having heard the such a visible role model of how it can be. Definitely seeing an increase interest in WHO WANNA run for office, and this really didn't surprise me. we saw this after twenty sixteen with Secretary Clinton. I really knew that if she won if she lost, there was going to be a huge impact on women wanting to run for office enter public service, and we saw that we had a huge increase at emerge host 2016 several of our affiliates..

Problem and thanks avenue now for everybody that's listening in, we have none other than Bernard Freeman Aka Bundy. My friend, my cousin live in inside the free world podcast with us. Bunny sounds like you're on the road man just just let us know how much time you got. We got. We got some questions for you today. We make it happen. I everybody. Knows Bun the the big thing that everybody knows about you man of course as you G K, and since the beginning you guys have read Port Arthur Texas. Oh, you know not only Port Arthur but you had spent time a lot of time in childhood is in Houston also rep Houston real heavy but tell us a little bit about de growing up in port. Arthur where you're from in the experiences in, PORT ARTHUR IN HOUSTON. as you know you listen I'm not sure if they know not you know put up very small. Industrial town is out of the sexist. Population varies I guess between fifty and fifty, five, thousand depending on the time you check. Build around all refineries You know put out there Bouma. both sprouted up, do this spindle top. So You know pretty much all the small towns in that area surrounding spending time. dairy pretty much facilitate life for the people who worked at the refiners, and so it was it's a blessing and a curse because as a blessing provided a lot of jobs and opportunities in the early days but. If you don't have. Really a Give up you don't work for the refineries for a company that facilitates the refinery and finding good sustainable work can be difficult. A lot of our eggs are in the same basket here. Definitely the we're we're tied to that that oil and gas you know here in Port Arthur. So you know someone with with as much talent as yourself. There's not many opportunities. So you know you had to look the places in thankful that. You know you had connections in Houston and was comfortable moving around in a big city in in making connections. Yeah. I spent a lot of my early years and he's been going back and forth unfortunately I was I was born in Houston but then my parents divorced my mother moved to put because a lot of her family that weren't in Louisiana or Houston when living input and she just wanted a breadth she and. Her aunt. My Grandmother's younger sisters was very close in age with my Mama Mama. Can I born and so they had a very strong relationship and so my mom moved to Port Arthur because there were structure there for But as I got older and started, you know wanting to find my way in the world specifically with entertainment right product didn't afford me any of those opportunities. So you kinda add to go to the big city to make your bones. So to speak but you know I've. been a big part of the culture music. Wise. So we kind of knew where to look and started trying to touch base with stuff but our connection added came on the flute. We were actually in Houston shopping, and so we went to kings flea market on the south side. And just. So happened that there was a guy there named Russell. Washington who had A. Record store but was actually looking for talent So we drove spanked of Houston and wind got the demo tape and then brought it all the way back to. HOUSTON. To store. Let him here a few songs He fell in love with the earliest thing earliest edit of. Debbie something good. which featured more than just me and Tampa. By this time, we ended up putting it out. It was only Tampa. And from that point on I get, the rest is history. Man, in history you've made definitely you know let's take real quick take it back. Just a little bit of the way we Mitt was was something unique in not I'll never forget it. I was a freshman in high school and we had a class together theater and your last name was Freeman and my last name was Freeman and we've got to talk and one day I. Think I told you that my dad was from Ville Platte and you said you'd from Vail plant and you say, well, my dad's from veal platinum next thing you know I think you went check Some of the lines and I went check some of the family lines and sure enough we were kin and from then on man I I just. I've already. Thought you were intelligent. One of the most intelligent people I've met even in my forty four years that I've been on this earth man I told you such a high regard. But from that point Oh man I watched you in and you've always been a motivator a trendsetter and you've left breadcrumbs for somebody like myself that can follow if you have ambition if driving I've always appreciated what of the people that hit us on facebook you know put something out there earlier was like. Man I'm getting ready to go online with gun right now we're doing the free world pie cast any questions and we'll take one questions and somebody they hit us up was big Jack. So Big Jackson Holler at you man said what's up and I was thinking about big Jag being in the same class with us you big Jack and I think Nolan Davis. And your cats were I just looked up to you guys so. Jackson was up man but that was the beginning days g K. so that was did. With. Big Time or how big time come about. Is that well, they came from that initial day of going to the market you know and we came to the agreement that. We are open to working with him and you know we were very young industry. We didn't really know anything as far as easy business and he didn't either like he came in from a retail aspect, but he always had a really good ear for music and You know he was the one that out of all the stuff that tell me something good was actually one of the oldest on. That we had in the catalogue at that time. So we brought him everything that we had, and he listen to some of the newer stuff which would have been like cocaine tobacco. The ride would have been part of that as well. but he was like, yeah, I mean. It's cool but they the tell me something good that that. Like I said he had yet amazing. You know yeah. No maintenance here for that kind of thing man shot big Joe me and Jack was. down. With each other and Nolan of course, normal ones you know probably one of my closest friends in school and the funny thing was with working with Nolan like Nolan I both kind of woke up when Bain was like. Let's go sign up for the navy. and. So we went we went there today we went to the naval officer assigned everything, but we didn't take the oath and then like a couple of weeks later, we were like Joe. I don't think that's what we. And they tried to they tried to Pigeonhole as into it and you know I tested very high tested like ninety, seven coadjutor. So their their whole day for me was like we WANNA. Thank you get college and we also WanNa put you basically on a nuclear submarine bike. So we want to college. To understand how to you know work in that field like engineering. and. Then put you on a nuclear submarine and. I Love Water I love this women all of the idea of. Underwater. For my dad time that was that was not what I was about that was not what I wanted to do with my life. So we had the we realize that like the easiest way to get out of that would have been to get scholarships. So that's when no letting I really started focusing heavily on drama and ended up getting Scholarships back in the Senate. And that kind of the way of of getting them like off of our. Of Our case at the time, and then after that, we decided that that wasn't. So. We were young kids bad. You know we you know. Thank God. We had options in life. we but we just didn't know what direction we wanted to go to at that point and and at that point I I really started to fall in love with the idea of of making music right so much that I loved theater. I just realized that wasn't necessarily path I wanted to take, and it's funny because music kind of brought me back around to that because being. Pop? Culture. I've actually been in a few feature films I was in the dirty third I was in This movie called. Video girl where I actually went meagan. Good. It's just the Maya good and Ruby Dee and I had like one on one team would ruby dee I Rueda de basically beat me up in the movie.

Individual man apposite. Very blessed very talented it full circle. You know I've always told you that that stage when we did the, we used to have a thing tell some of the folks if you you went to a draw drama festival, they had a thing called group impromptu and you know I had the honor of being in the group impromptu with Bun a few

What Have We Learned From Elijah Wald's Escaping The Delta
"It's time to let it roll. This is your host Nate Wilcox and we're doing a special. What have we learned episode once again with my friend and colleague Dr? Larry Campbell Yuri welcome back. Good to be here can't get good so today. We're GONNA. Look back on. Elijah Wald's book escaping the Delta and my interview that we did with him. and. We picked us up this book in that episode because. Other than Ed. Ward who basically taught me everything I. Know about analyzing music is a cultural history. Elijah Wald's books, this one and how Beatles destroyed rock and roll, which we'll talk about the next episode of what have we learned. Really expanded my mind because it took. It's a revisionist take on what has been disagree romanticized history of Robert Johnson, and the Delta Blues and found walls attempts to reevaluate Johnson. From the perspective of his peers and contemporaries, basically the black African that African American Blues Fan of the Nineteen Thirties and. Rather than from the perspective of generally white blues, fans of the nineteen sixties to now so it just totally blew my mind I tried to capture that to great interview. But the main point that the book put across that Robert Johnson was just a human being who sang and played beautifully. He wasn't a mythical figure. That probably wasn't really devil at the crossroads he wasn't. A country Bumpkin? He was a sophisticated sharp-dressed cat who travelled widely who listen to all kinds of music, not just what he heard live in the delta, but listen to the radio listener guards and learn so having said all that. How do you think we did did did I get that across in the interview with walled? Yeah, I think the book and the interview with Wall. You know Really, helps a flesh out. You know the the basic ideas that you were just talking about. And really helps to make it clear. that you know the blues artists of the late Twenties and early thirties in the early twenties really. Physically people that they were professionals. That they were participating in You know the creation of. New Cultural forms new sort of musical expressions. While at the same time. trying to freeze their audiences. Who had know? Fairly sophisticated demand and varying labs. Right so that the artists themselves as you suggested had to have A. Wide ranging set of skills, they had to have been aware of those sort of traditional musical expressions, and you know like in the case of the blues, things like Hollers and loans, and that sort of thing well also being aware of of popular music. Which by the nineteen thirties you're talking about. Artists like Duke. Ellington and Louis Armstrong and and People that are appearing in films on the radio, etc.. And so the picture of Blues. As this sort of backwater expression. Rural Culture Coming from people who were simply oppressed and trapped and you know on some level were expected to the ignorance. And poverty stricken just didn't hold you know I mean. You couldn't can be successful blues artists if you travel the country and rags. showed up at. Various venues unable to relate to modernizing audiences. And I think I think the book captures that really well. and. I thought your interview with Wall. Made that clear.

In Michigan, a Genesee County Sheriff supports Flint demonstrators during peaceful march
"Tennessee county sheriff started the night last night with riot gear in a baton as protesters marched near the city of flint by the end of last night sure of course Swanson was walking in the marching band sure of joining us right now very interesting turn of events for you last night sheriff it was historic my brother it was beautiful to see tell me how exactly it happened again I can't imagine that the evening started off with that plan in your mind not at all you know everybody in the world it's saw an eight minute forty second video of honorific police action and we are not that there's great police officers in the entire country around the world that don't subscribe to that in so you felt the tension build then we saw those protests being advertised it started around four thirty five o'clock and that you could feel the tension and I could tell yet you're certainly before eight ishe and they marched towards the the police department and I I I saw the turn of events happened by the second and it was it was highly contentious it was highly volatile and I can only say that died we always rely on our training and experience but I know the people of flint I know the hearts and all those years twenty seven years on the job I knew it was a time when I saw the first fist pump I said these these folks need to be talked to and I simply went to what we call the shot caller the that lead organizer I gave a bagel bear hug and I said bro tell me what you need because that's not who we are and he said tell the people to get their attention and he hollered out and I immediately started talking it down they saw the heart and I explain that these caps on the line don't want any problems and they are human beings and you saw what was what was said and then the final straw the one that I called the historic moment flint Michigan is when I asked what else do you need this a walk with us and we walked in what they wanted was a voice they wanted somebody to understand and they want action they don't want lip service and that was a glorious moment I K. we walk another mile nav back we stayed there to almost midnight there was not a single arrest not a single fire and not a single injury so sheriff do you think this is an example that maybe you can set and others can follow suit and and maybe things can remain peaceful one hundred percent in fact if I might add this is gotten global attention because of all that's happening and I don't know the people's committees but I do know that law enforcement officials from the top need to set the tone so I'm telling all my media friends that have called me from all over the world I am calling for Sunday night to be a night of peace in the law enforcement has to start by laying down their swords having a conversation with the people that are trying to send the message come from behind podiums conference rooms come from behind Intel centers in a walk with them they want to see unity and when you show that when you show that bone ability I can tell you this taking my helmet off and dropping my weapons and walked into the crowd was probably the least tactical movement I could probably do but it wasn't about that the benefits far outweigh the risk they had to have somebody to step up and say I hear what you're saying and I'm with you Serra's Chris Swanson you are most definitely role model during the most difficult

It's not a big deal. Oh so elsie. So yes Jessica and I figured out something today that I can't believe I didn't think of this. Oh God Jessica has the adobe suite so she has adobe audition okay so one of the things. We've always had problems with his she uses quicktime and some so. She has adobe audition she can record right into addition and we've never used it in two hundred sixty four episodes. Why is that that is so card yet? Dum Dum Dum Dorky. It's Kinda Dorky. Right Kinda dark. You must have known that I've had it though right. No I wouldn't have put to do together because the thing is though just you wanted to break up with adobe suite so many separate times true and not one of the Times that. We've had a discussion about your break-up the possible break-up with adobe suite has audition ever come into the conversation that's never part of your everyday. It's just you know photoshop. Right so we use that to record her instead of quicktime and it would be so much easier and so much better and we would always know that the Mike correctly picked all the good stuff. I am so happy. Yes and we can also add to the track. We can also add compression because just could really her voice can really use compression so that you can do all of that. Pre like Yes prefixed prefixed. For her right so right now on excited like like a kid right before. Christmas. Because I'm excited because when we get off here we're going to make an appointment. We're going to go through this thing. I'm sure there'll be a lot of yelling and hollering there. Yes probably I noticed that I do have an issue when I'm trying to describe and do things when I can't see. It frustrates me when I can't see the other person's what they're doing. It frustrates me and I've been doing a lot of that lately for different clients and stuff as they set up to record in their home. Oh okay yes I need. I need to calm down. I need to be able to breathe through that. I need some kind of yoga breathing. Technique to center my Chee. Said what are you Senator Senator? Something we can just give you just can send Isaac. I can send may May and you can get through them. Then you'll find yours end. You know it's like a living. We'll be like here deal with her for a bit and then leave work through. That had four under the age of four. I know but you haven't. When was the last time? Oh well that's true. This is what I'm saying. It's like there's a practice I know when I'm in I'm in my sixties or seventies and somebody tells me how to deal with a four year five eight year old. I'm not I'm not going to be adapted. I've been like you know. Been out of it for awhile. I'm over. Yeah it's like it's forgotten like I don't even want to think about when they were infants. I don't I know Yeah No. I don't really like the idea of taking my clients and comparing them to eight year old child. I just. That's not the way it is that feeling. Oh the tenseness in the chest and the tightening in the chest he so we have some like communications. Lets say why.

So you don't have to update it so I don't know what version I know what? She's talking about tiffany. You can only record stream yard if you're a pro client pay for that So in order for you to to be able to record and download your files you have to be if you are not a pro then all you can do is stream. So you have the capability to stream. I don't know how many hours for you know. I don't think anybody needs more hours to stream. But that those are all pro functionalities one of the things that Justin I also wanted to do was to do a double streaming stream to hear and to the podcast main group or to the podcast page. And we can't also can't do that unless you're pro so if you're a pro you can. I think you can Cross post to two places at once. We have done that and if we ask. Yeah have the option of two. Yeah Yeah if you're did you upgrade it Ogden profile? I've been down. No I know I know John Is. Yeah but you know I didn't know. Yeah Yeah you can only do the same time. Yeah no no basic no base.

They did allow for for recording and downloading but once they opened it up. Then that's what you pay for. May GotTA STAY IN BUSINESS. Somehow and you want him to be able to stay in business.

Life as a Trucker Right Now
"Heard from a lot of you out there this week Thanks for your calls him messages. You're wondering what's it like out there for truckers with everything that's going on in the country. We got this call just a couple of days ago. Hey this is Jordan. I'm calling from Washington. Dc obviously like a lot of people in the world right now Hunker down in my apartment Because of nineteen and I've been thinking a lot about what this means for truckers in terms of the economy and folks stocking up on groceries and You know their role is the lifeblood of the country in a moment of chaos like this well Jordan life for me as Reefer. Holler has not changed that much. I guess that speaks a little bit to what attracted me to refer work in the beginning is people always gotta eat and While they're there have been small changes so I mean this week I've seen people wearing bandannas like the lone ranger. You go way your truck and the Nice cashier at the truck. Stop quickly avoid your outstretched hand and she sets your change on the counter. Who can blame her? There's an old customer we've been to for years. It had a nice indoor toilet and while there's an out of order sign on. And Wow maybe it really is out of order or maybe they just don't want to be a petri dish. Were a pandemic. So you know it's easy to get thin skinned about these things But these are just working people. Don't WanNa get sick and my wife Denise Said she'd like to go with me next week. In case I get quarantine. Somewhere far away we could be together and how I'm not sure about
The Birth of CB Handles
"In the late. Nineteen fifties. The Federal Communications Commission started requiring licenses for anyone wanting to use a see. That's a citizens band radio. It was easy enough to get a license but CB's got so common that many truckers just didn't bother with it today the FCC truckers and others without licenses came up fictitious names for themselves shadow. I'm not going to get into the story about how I got that name. Even though the FCC stout requiring the senior license in the early Nineteen Eighties. Tradition of handles stuck around. They can be jokes because I used to weigh a hundred pound exercises in wish fulfillment. But I've gone by T. speed before but like slow and slower. Yes appropriated insults to if you Google the words Wild Australian bitch it comes back Dingo sort of. That's my handle Schreider. The heck are you might Crawford here. Might be the first trucker who told me that a CB handle meant to last is rarely something you give yourself given the handle beer cab. Because when he was sitting there drinking beer kept count of how many dad was he saved little tabs. Legit handle is a nickname that takes the reins and he looked like curly from a priest. Who just and he could sound. Act just like in fact Crawford gave me my own him like you're like a ghost. I'm somewhere all of a sudden you show up and would you be in everywhere and being able to write about everything. You need dose writer. That's W. R. I t. e. r. most writer chants. But how might Crawford became? The Mustang is a more interesting story. We're going on a ranch out in Colorado for one hundred dollars a week. He'd come off the road and the nineteen eighties to try his hand is a cowboy out in Colorado. Wow Mustang from out in Nevada or somewhere there you would come to know a wild horse. They name the force. Norman Norman. It was very friendly and he was very playful. He would come up behind you. And take you snows in Knox Cowboy hat off. He's like Mike took on the project breaking Norman to a writer and I can ride most anything. Well didn't always go. Well I climbed up in the saddle. Squeeze my legs together. Which was commanded to get into? You know go forward He didn't walk forward. It straight up. Did you ever try to get a saddle out from between your legs when you're eight foot in the air in coming down and there's no horse under you? I hit hard me the saddle still between my legs and I'm trying to breathe. Norman comes over and I swear to God. This is the truth is some other people. See It would verify norman. Come over then down. Looked at me like are you alright and lick my face like damn dogwood how everybody kept telling me. Mustang man and like any good handle the name stuck mustangs long career in trucking saw both the glory days and the long decline of the truckers. Today call it. The quote original Social Media Boards Heyday in the nineteen seventies when impromptu highway meet and greet for drivers. Cb coffee breaks some called. You got no guys at. You'd be driving down the road and see it coming on and Holler over a bear. Tab Is that you or hockey child is that you when friendships were forged over the airwaves. But we'd go along just BS in the Hallway. Always a social thing. Those things still happen but the steady rise. The cell phone did a number on. Cbs Culture among truckers on the vault. And everybody else cellphone. It became the downfall for a lot of things.

Rip It Up Like Nancy Pelosi
"High Erin. I have a question for for you. What is it okay? So how long do you think it'll be before. Rip It up like Nancy. Pelosi will be a rap lyric and when that happens. How long after that do you? I think it'll be before. MSNBC's Ari melber passes out okay so if we can just exclude Ari from the conversation because he actually makes me not like music so much. The question is how long before we get it tattooed. Oh there's lots of places in Los Angeles people want to put stickers acres and do stuff to their bodies all over the place so I could do that as soon as today. I mean I just think that that would be like a the proper testament. So it's like you know the we can do. WIT like sign from the forties really does make muscles and our muscles should say rip it up. Oh my gosh yeah was that was delicious. That was a moment although I heard Nancy Pelosi for those who didn't watch the state of the Union. And if you didn't congratulations to you you have lead it and we did. You have two more hours in your life to live than we currently do I but you spent a doing fun things like looking at your phone staring at a blank wall or watching paint dry but yeah at the end of Donald Trump state of the union. Last night Nancy Pelosi stood up and very dramatically ripped the speech copy that she had in front of her in half and there was a kind of mixed response to it people who wanted to do that. The whole time really rejoiced is people who didn't who think president trump is the best thing since I don't know Orange Marmalade said that it was rude of her but Elissa. So what did you think of it. So here's the you know me Erin I am. I'm a bit of an `institutionalised I kind of like things to work. The way they're supposed to work and you know a list of two years ago would have been like Nancy girl. What are you doing last night? I literally hooted and hollered let me tell you why because because when he came in and she tried to shake his hand he was like back off bitch and just like turned around. Didn't shake her hand and then his speech was full of lies so many lies that. We're actually what I was waiting for. After she ripped up the speech was for her to burn them. And make a smokey eye and And so anyway I was like I don't know I found it Cathartic. I think that so many of us felt like traumatized by his speech. And just were shouting at the
Woman dies after waiting hours in hospital emergency room
"So I wanted to argue about a story that I saw on the national news that caught my attention and I'm not sure that there's anything that could have happened differently it actually happened and a hospital in Milwaukee where twenty five year old woman goes into a hospital emergency room complaining of chest pains and shortness of breath so those are two of the things that come to mind when you state you think of a of a hard to think of a heart attack you think of a heart but she's also twenty five years old sure there's are necessarily things that you think of why it when you think of a twenty five year old so she gets to the hospital ad for fifty eight so call at five o'clock in the evening she's there for a couple of hours right two hours two and a half hours she's there for two and a half hours they give her any cagey that comes back normal they give her a chest X. ray it shows that her heart is in large data but a day ask her you know about her her her medical history but nothing major so again she got to the hospital at five o'clock so she's still waiting at seven thirty she still waiting she's now getting impatient and she's now getting concerned she decides she's going to leave the hospital emergency room and go to the nearby urgent care you know there are there called something different everywhere but we all know what they are there are these freestanding clinics that you can go to so she decides to leave she had sewer car because she's going to go to the nearby urgent care now I she's at the hospital she's on her phone she's posted on Facebook okay I've been here a long time nobody's really coming out to see me nothing's going on so she decides to leave at seven twenty seven at eight thirty nine the hospital calls her phone to see where she is they want to know what happens her sister answered the phone and says my sister collapsed in our car we were on our way to urgent care and my sister collapsed at nine oh seven and they take her back to the emergency room and she was pronounced dead a few minutes later the cause of death was hypertensive cardio vascular disease the manner of death was a natural according to the medical examiner's office I disappoint her family wants to know could this have been avoided could this have been avoided could this twenty five year old's death then avoid it had the hospital been more responsive so you know in these situations in these cases I think that family's always want or always feel that someone didn't do their job someone didn't react someone didn't respond to death could have been prevented something could have happened for me this is a tough one I don't know that I would have left the E. R. I don't know that I would have allowed them my sister to leave the car to head toward an urgent care I just think that if we were already at the ER they had already started the testing I think that I would have kicked and screamed and hollered and made enough noise at that emergency room that somebody would have come and take in US taken her and done more testing I would have made a loud enough size sellout enough stink that someone would have I would have gotten someone's attention I think that sometimes I think we always look for people to blame I think we always look for people to say that it's your fault it's your fault I don't even know that there's always it's always someone else's fault clearly this young woman at the age of twenty five had a hard issues and I don't know if they had been undetected all along I don't know if her she was aware that she had a hard issues you know that's the other problem too sometimes you see these new these stories on the news you don't get the whole story and I know from my time as a news reporter sometime I had a I had a a minute and a half to tell a story I had one minute and thirty seconds to tell you an entire story you can't tell everything in a in a minute thirty second you can most days you can only get the headlines and said there's a lot of about this story that we don't know but the family has since hired attorneys the attorneys say they were trying to get more information the issues surrounding this tragedy involve more than just the ward family these are issues that pose a threat to

The 9 Worst Cruise Packing Mistakes
"Are the nine Worst Paki mistakes that cruises can and do make that could also get them into a lot of trouble? I'm Gary Benbridge image. This is another of my tips for travelers. I'm an explorer. Nine packing mistakes. That could end up getting you into a lot of trouble starting with this. This one drugs bringing drugs could get you into trouble. Now there's the obvious ones which are illegal drugs and people have been caught on. Cruise ships surprised pricing often. It's awfully even in the last year. There were a couple age. Seventy one in seventy two called Roger and sue clock some pensioners from the UK that were arrested in Lisbon carrying many kilograms. Twenty pounds of cocaine. They got up to eight years also the same year. There were two men arrested trying to bring drugs on board the allure of the seas in Miami and other famous case where Gruber calls who are known as the instagram crews drug Babes where arrested in Sydney trying to you smell drugs on Princess cruises so obviously of course bring on board illegal drugs is a big issue however you also need to be extremely careful with prescription genre even over the counter drugs because in some places you cruising to humanity find that they're also illegal so for example in cruising to Dubai the United Arab Emirates. It's there's a lot of drugs which can get very simply are illegal so any drugs for example with Codeine so even very simple drugs like tylenol. Arthritis Relief Leaf is illegal in that country and get you in trouble. Gentlemen was arrested and held in prison for many months for trying to bring Tamaz Japan into the United Arab Emirates in Japan again. There's lots of restrictions as well so even sudafed for example you haven't issuing Indians Japan so very important if you're gonNA cruise and you have either. OTC drugs your drugs. You just pulled over the counter check that you can actually bring those into the country particularly disembarking and if you have a prescription drug that you take with you. My big strong tip is keep it in the original packaging so they can see your name. And ideally also have a copy of your prescription or or letter from your doctor but be careful those very simple drugs that you bring on board could get you into a lot of trouble the secondary that could get you into trouble if you packed them all remote control devices or things that can be launched authorship so very simple balloons are no longer allowed most cruise lines. You can't bring balloons onboard because the concern and that you'll release those balloons authorship and it will endanger marine life if you want to bring a drone on a cruise you pretty much excluded by all cruise lines. I've tried many times to get drones is on board very few Cruz. Actually even let you bring them on board some cruise lines will let you hand them over to security and they will let you when you get on and off the ship but pretty much. Every single cruise ship will ban drones ban also things like remote controlled aircraft at the time of according war. Caribbean and Carnival are the only the ones that will let you bring drones on board normally. Keep them with security and they will let you use them when you head off on a port. I've tried many times with cruise lines to bring my journal on board and even with lots of guarantees working even with the PR teams. It is refused what will happen. is you'll find is confiscated and you want to get it back back at the end of the cruise the third area that could cause problems for you is not packing for the dress code depending on the cruise you go on. They will have different restriction. So if you're heading for example on a very formal cruise so you could be on Cunard or it could be princess how America. They have formal nights where they're required for example. Gentlemen to to wear jackets normally with a tie or Tuxedo. That require ladies very elegant gowns. So you can't get into any of the key dining venues without that dress code also some cruise lines are also not let you go into the public areas. They won't even let you watch the show or go to the casino. Whatever if you're not in the dress codes are really important to make sure that you've you've packed for the dress code of course the converse if you're getting a nice relaxed cruise you don't want to be bringing all your fancy gear because you may get a chance to wear it? Also very importantly understand if there's any other restrictions so for example one or two cruise lines have banned fancy dress. This is after the head of hollered problems with probably not inappropriate. Fancy onto dress so some cruise lines are really strict around fancy dress and clothing basically with slogans. They will only let you bring on fancy dress. Relevant to a particular theme and those themes tend to be inaugurals like White Knight Party or Red White and blue so also bear mind. You might not be able to bring that fancy dress also depending where you're going don't pack camouflage gear get some islands. Even in the Caribbean will not let you wear camouflage gear out and about so really important. Understand the dress code. Also if you or your kids have have things like those shoes of the wheels on most cruise lines. Also don't allow those so when you're packing. Also have I think around the dress code and also check. If you're particularly cruise line has is any quirks Robert jacomb worse. For example some cruise lines will let you wear jeans a dark smart jeans a faded or ripped jeans so that's something really important to bear in mind. The dress code another really big packing mistake that I have seen a lot of people make is packing valuables and things that they really don't want to lose in their check in bags. Make sure that you keep all of those in your carry on bags. I've had people contact me talking about. They've had really valuable equipment in the checking comebacks which is gone missing or been damaged and then they've had no recourse for those so many important things. I could passports medications if you've got camera equipment laptops smartphones. Anything that is valuable even your precious jewels if you're taking those somebody's on a cruise with you so really important if you have anything anything valuable whether it's even sentimental value keep that with you in your carry on bags. Do not put it in the bags that you had in another important. No no when it comes to packing. He's turned pack anything. That has an open flame or is flammable. So you can't bring fireworks or anything like that but also you can't bring candles you. You comprehend incense burners so anything with live. Flames are not allowed on a cruise ship. Fire is the thing that cruises and captains and crew fear more more than anything else. It is the most dangerous thing to happen at sea so all lifelines are banned for example. You might have seen in a restaurant. They have little fake AAC flames and things like that to avoid having live flames. The only time you'll ever see live flames is one of those cruises where they do some Flam Base Crepe Suzette doc whatever at your table and then they're really strictly controlled with a fire blanket and fire extinguishers and all that kind of stuff so so anything. That's even vaguely flammable. Do not pack in your bags. Next is also a little bit linked to that. You can't bring on pretty much any crews anything anything that has some sort of heating element to it so you find whilst most cruise lines we'll let you bring on board hairdryers not all of them. Some of the might even let you bring on curling tongs but or them. But you can't bring on. Things like ions travel irons. Kettles coffee makers hot plates anything bizarre like that. And he's got a heating element. You cannot bring that on board also very important if you are traveling with kids very young kids and you need a bottle sterilizer or about a warmer check of your cruise line. Let you bring that. So for example Zomba's Disney does not allow parents to bring on sterilize bottles. They require you to either work with your cabin steward or you. You can talk to guest relations and they will give you some equipment. But you can't bring your own on board so anything that's got a heating element doping on board. Because they will check for that they will scream for that and they will will confiscate it. Also if you're heading off on a celebrate recruits Christmas or something like that you can't even bring those light strings of Christmas slides and things like that. They will not let you bring on board. The next packing mistake is around packing anything that is or could be perceived as has being some kind of weapon or could be used as weapons. This is very important because all though there's the obvious things you can't bring shotguns and pistols that that kind of stuff will big long knives knives with you. There's a bunch of things that you might end up bring on board. That could get into trouble without realizing it so for example comping on board replicas so if your kids have converted could guns or whatever you probably find those are not allowed you combine those on board. There's also loss of restrictions on self defense equipment so if you perhaps want to bring some handcuffs with you for whatever reason or pepper spray those kind of things. You can't bring those either with you but surprisingly you also can't bring sing along things that are actually sports equipment. That could be used as weapons so you can't bring things like cricket bats baseball bats anything that looks like a club. Basically really you'll find that cruise lines will not let you bring on board. If they find that in your luggage they will take it out and they will confiscate it and give it to you at the end of the cruise if it comes comes to things like knives and sharp objects most of the rules that you can't bring any knife that is longer than four inches long or at. That's around about ten centimeters. The only only exception to that are there's old-fashioned safety razors but again if you're bringing on board you might find. You have some difficulties so anything that's perceived as or could be a weapon is restricted and would be a big mistake to pack. Another big. Packing mistake is bringing too much alcohol with you now. I have done a video before. We're talk about the great lengths. That people the go-to to smuggle booze on board most cruise lines will allow you to bring either one or sometimes two bottles of wine or champagne on board with you per person within your luggage. Anything over that they will clamp down on and they will take it away so if you're out on an excursion and you're going to winery or orders buying some alcohol spirits wine champion. Whatever it is when you come back on board the cruise line will take that away from you? And they'll hold it till the end of the cruise so so very important. When you're packing? You need to be really careful. About how much booze you bring on board some cruise lines. Even restrict things like water sewed code. Is that kind of stuff so make sure you really understand what you are allowed to pack. So you don't get into trouble. My next tip is around the whole area of musical equipment and instruments pretty much every single cruise line will allow you to bring on board musical instrument and you are allowed to play that unless they get complaints so you can bring on board musical instruments and you can play those in your cabin. Don't play them out on deck I've been on crispy with it and it's really annoying And is Sydney. Why is going to irritate eight other passengers when it comes to things like things playing music you'll find that pretty much every cruise line will not let you pack and bring big boom inboxes? They will let you bring on board smaller musical devices which they ask that you only play within your cabin. You can listen to music music out on deck with if phones you complex out loud you are. Ernest has played with new cabinet again. If you get complaints from your neighbors it will be taken away from you. I've done a video before about music. Music being played on balconies music player balconies is not something that cruise lines will encourage or in fact. If you get complaints you will find your equipment to taken away from you when packing for crews really important. That your Voi- these mistakes are you. Don't get yourself into a pickle and into trouble. These are the nine mistakes that I have seen. People make all all the time and they some of them are quite easy to make.

US lawmakers clash over impeachment charges against Trump
"Today. The House Judiciary Committee is marking up. The articles of impeachment in a confrontational televised hearing. Were also learning new details about the inevitable Senate trial early next year. I've got to fantastic guests. Tell me unpack all the news of the day in a few minutes. We'll be talking with White White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks that CNN. Political analyst. April Ryan but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN producer and reporter the relentless Marshall. Cohen Marshall Thank you so much for being here on the podcast. Thank you David so I want you to hear a little bit of sound from today's hearings now just I said marking up. The what is happening here is actually like the normal legislative process. What you know when When a bill gets introduced in committee it gets marked up that means each side? Has the ability need to make amendments to the bill change it and the committee homes that bill and then passes that to the full House and that is what is happening with these articles of impeachment. Now of course. The Democrats crafted these articles. They're very comfortable with the language and they're trying to change anything. Republicans are being given the opportunity Obviously To be able to slow roll this day make their political points Try to amend the articles but they're outvoted time and time again. procedurally These two articles are likely to be passed out of committee before the day is done and then onto the house floor for a vote next week. But that's the process. Here's the rhetoric I want you to I hear hear from Congresswoman Pramilla Jal of Washington state will any one of my colleagues on the other side. Say that it is an abuse of power to condition aid to condition aid on official acts. We'll forget about president trump. Aw Forget about President. Trump is any one of my colleagues willing to say that it is ever okay for President of the United States of America to invite foreign interference in our elections. Not a single one of you has has said that so far what I heard jibe. How say this Marshall? Today my ears perked up because she was really trying to remove donald trump from the equation and really focus on the fact that Republicans on the hill. Her colleagues on the other side of that day are would from her perspective blindly in lockstep with him no matter what so her her whole arguments here stripped him out of it. Are you okay with this presidential behavior. We've heard from a couple of Republicans. Mike Turner of Ohio will hurt Texas that have indicated the the phone call with Dolinsky that trump's language was not okay. I mean I think Turner used that that exact phrase Mr President. This is not okay yet. He fully does oppose impeachment She wishes it. Was that simple though. You could just strip trump out right hand mant trying to make an argument larger about Republicans here right about being just blindly lockstep with him. But they don't agree with her on the merits of this. Either right she's she said said two things she said trump Conditioned official acts on these favors number one and number two solicited election help from Ukraine crane. Now Democrats are in lockstep. That that's what happened Most outside observers that are acting in good faith would say that that is apparently apparently what happened but the Republicans dispute both of those right they say number one there was no direct proof that trump conditioned the military aid aide on the investigation. And you didn't hear that From anyone not even sunland right. Who said a Gordon Sunland the US ambassador to the U.? You who said that. It was conditioned on the White House invitation but not necessarily the military and then secondly we've been hearing this all day from Republicans today they're not conceding the ground that this was trump soliciting election. Help they're still arguing and they've been doing all day that this was trump trying to crack down down on corruption because Burris MMA The Ukrainian energy company was corrupt. And Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was involved with these corrupt crooked get actors so problem with the ground. Marshall can you point to all the other places that Donald Trump has made it policy to fight corruption and using Presidential Oval Office meetings meetings and Military aid is a way to accomplish cycle no and the Republicans are acting in bad faith by pushing both of these points it strains credulity ability it it defies logic. It's it's not a good faith. Argument here is perhaps a better argument from the Republicans that I wanted to hear from a Republican Congressman of California in Utah McClintock. His argument is really neither of those things. It is that the president has the ability to set policy here. And what is At core in McClintock's point of view here is all of these witnesses. You've heard from data policy disagreement of the way he was managing the Ukraine relationship relationship and priority. Here's McClintock MR chairman. The constitution introduces the President. With fifteen words. Executive Power shall be vested in a president under the United States of America. It does not vest any authority in Lieutenant colonels the NFC Ambassador State Department officials are Cabinet Secretaries Rotarians the only authority that these officials exercise is delegated to them by the president so all of the criticisms and resentments Johnson personal and political disagreements. That we've heard from those officials are completely irrelevant. I give him some credit there for making a a constitutional to tional argument on the constitutional question of impeachment. Is he right well. The president does get to set the policy but if the the policy is essentially that the United States government should be used to help the re election of Donald J trump then okay. The president sets that policy but it's in his own personal interest. The outcome of that official policy is for his his personal benefit and as Democrats describe it. What you just described is in violation of the Constitution and the oath of office that he swore You know when he became president. That is Nancy Pelosi's ultimate point right when when we discussed this yesterday. Whenever she's pressed on the politics of this she she goes to her oath of office to protect and defend and uphold the constitution and that the president violated that very oath that he also takes? Ah On she's not you know hooting and hollering and making a big show out of this in many ways. It's been very much reluctant march to get here. And and you know I think the strongest proof of that is that when Nancy Pelosi in the Democrats took over in January of this year. They didn't impeach anybody they didn't even they tried to snuff out talk of impeachment and anytime did any of the more Liberal members of their caucus started bringing it up Pelosi's he just shot it down over and over the are largely here. I think it's pretty clear that they are here because they feel like the president forced them to do this that he was so so unconstitutional and so much putting the integrity of our next election at stake that they had to do it period. So where do we go from here. Marshall so These articles get passed out of committee. Today I assume on a party line vote. We have no indication that there's a Democrat on judiciary. WHO's not in favor of these? These articles of impeachment and judiciary is known to be a a more partisan committee of all the committees on on Capitol Hill And then we see action on the House floor Lord but what happens between now and then yeah right so the question is going to be. How many Democrats are going to break ranks and joined the Republicans a few have already stated their opposition? No big surprises there I think that the the same guys that voted against authorizing the inquiry are going to be voting against impeachment number two of those Jeff Andrew of of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota. That's right so no big surprise there I don't think that anybody really believes that. Either of these articles of impeachment each mint will get voted down by the house. It seems like there's a They've crossed that threshold based off of where we are right now. That could change but You know is it going to issue going to drop. Is Nancy Pelosi to lose more to this. Point where it's kind of embarrassing and people will sort of get second thoughts and feel like it's limping. Something over to the Senate or will they keep it in the low single digits. Maybe you can count it on one hand and say well it's too bad that we didn't get any Republicans but look we still have a clear majority very few defections and we did our jobs and now we'll kick it over to our colleagues in the upper

"In House Mirror of trump politics and these is very important I think Democratic candidates either better or work in twenty twenty someone else needs to think very seriously about you know the you know Muslim terrorists imposter that they that he was being depicted as on Fox News and so he's like this the character It worked for Beto to be in the car right so the lesson is not for the communications people out there to run to there can be like we drive around like Beto did and facebook livestream you gotta do what approve people's lives you know you could put her at a round table livestream that and she's talking to people about policy for an hour who it impacts like mothers children families whatever it may be figuring out what works for you where you're at your best as a candidate doesn't you know it doesn't matter what that is and figure out how to create a media ecosystem around that I mean we you hi Antonia all talked about this on the media episode of the Wilderness Tiny has been talking to us about this and she joined crooked media that you need to find in create this sort of media ecosystem and fill the void with content as a candidate so that you're not defined by the opposition but I think it's essential for whoever is going to be the nominee in twenty twenty to figure out what works for them and to have this sort of this entire life outside of Donald trump you can't be sucked into his vortex all the time because it's not gonNa fuck and work your a- and we saw this right like Elizabeth Warren who we love who's brilliant on policy and has this great story and it's passionate she gets she got sucked into it for a moment there with that video about her native American ancestry because it was so much about well here's what trump said about me here's how I'm hitting back and it was suddenly like her are going back and forth with trump as opposed to her on her own who so much more inspiring and passionate and brilliant. That's right you know we have I have referred to in my on this podcast before this book that was written in two thousand six called the way to win which in most cases is pile of hot steaming establishment garbage that should not be read in part because it was a treaties on the two thousand election that didn't include the words Barack Obama but I will say this they spent a lot of time talking in there about what they refer to as the freak show which was Fox News the report just how the sort of the crazy nature of media and this is two thousand six before facebook and twitter became dominant parts of political campaigns And the point they made is that Democratic candidates from Al Gore and John Kerry had both basically had their public narrative completely disrupt in destroyed by the quote Unquote freakshow into win you have to be a candidate who can survive the freak show and walk out walk onto you know walk into the Ballot doc on election day controlling your own story and not these were the people under the American people know you for who you are not for who Fox News or Matt Drudge think you should be and Hillary Clinton suffered for that now in her defense she had been dealing with that for thirty years by the time she even announced for president so it wasn't really a fair it wasn't like she started out and just did navigate in the camp pain most of the almost all the damage that was done to her was done before the campaign long before she was running for president and and and was exacerbated by some decision she made that the media then treated really stupidly like using a personal emails etc but like that is why now that is that much harder because the your opponent is the person who conducts the freak show that is what trump does he tells them what to say about you he gives you your nickname it is repeated on Fox News the than mainstream normal media than sort of echoes that and it's like how you know it's how is Jeb Bush handling the below energy label right if he is able to push it into the brain firmament of the American people and your ability to survive that will determine whether you WANNA lose Brock Obama Barack Obama's the other candidate Brian talking about in his yeah twitter thread which is Obama's personal story and message was so compelling and he was able to tell it better than Republicans were able to tell us about him and therefore he was able to succeed twice and that that's what is what it's taken twenty in twenty twenty and that to me is so much more interesting that the candidate who can tell a clear compelling story about themselves in America without featuring trump as a major character candidate I'm most interested in two thousand twenty yeah me too well someone who told his story very very well in the campaign Andrew Gillum is is going to be up next so we will be right back Pudsey America's a genetic connections you share then threats did you inherit your pension to vote for well trump for your mom or your dad and how much is in.

"But there I think there are some lessons in there. Which is Trump's great superpower. To the extent in like, a super villain sense of superpower is that he can move the conversation onto the things that do not work for Democrats do work for Republicans. Right. There is nothing about the caravan discussion that helps Democrats turn out their voters or persuade independence support Democrats. Right. Like, it's just, but it is a conversation that helps motivate Republican voters. And so he like sucks you into this vortex of culture war margin. Elliott that is a net negative for Democrats net positive for Republicans. So how do you avoid that? Right. The first thing you have to do is how to pivot, and we talked about this a lot in the run up to the election about you know, using the carrot calling out the game that will what Trump is trying to do to show what he's the conversation. He's trying to avoid Trump's trying to scare you about this caravan that seven hundred miles away in Mexico because he doesn't want you to know that. That he if Republicans keep power they're going to cut your healthcare cut, your Medicare and take your health-care. Right. That's part of it. The other thing is you have to the best candidates in the most disciplined candidates, right? Were you, you know, like as a democrat candidate. We do not control despite what Republicans tell you. What is in the traditional media, right? Like, Trump can d- as oppose the United States and someone who drives ratings and clicks, he can dictate what the media talks about. We can't. Yeah. But we can dictate what we say when we talk to the media or what we say we're on the stumper, but we say were on in our in our advertising, perfectly digital television. But in our advertising, and that's where we have to be disciplined. And so I think there is a way to you can't ignore doesn't exist 'cause running against them. But you can be incredibly disciplined about not following him following him down these rabbit holes that. Help him in hurt us. Yeah. I thought our friend Brian Fallon who was in killary Hillary Clinton's communication shop in 2016 had what I thought it was a really smart tweet storm about this the other night based off you know, you talking about ignoring him in the story. He basically says that it's extremely difficult to ignore Trump on a campaign against him because he'll say something crazy and offensive. And then most of the media, especially television, they'll lead with that. And the only way for the democratic opponent to get into that story is to hit back against Trump. Trump says something racist and offensive sexist, whatever, you know, the democratic candidate can't say, no, no, I have my I have my tax plan today. Are I'm talking about healthcare today. Now do a story on me. The only way they can get into the story is if they respond to Trump, so then he said this creates a sugar high of satisfaction a false sense of being on offense for once rather than being on defense about some contrived controversy. But the joke is on you because reverting to an exchange of salvos, you're playing Trump's game you can give thoughtful speech, documenting Trump's many examples of acting racist. But his his evening rally. He will with no supporting evidence, simply call you a racist back and the next day stories will read candidates trade barbs, which I thought was a great summary. What happens and a real window into the frustration that the Clinton campaign had in dealing with Trump? It's not that they didn't know. This was a problem is that they couldn't find a way out of this box that that is exactly right. And it is the problem for Democrats is we are still adhering to the wrong view of what works in politics. And so your the incentive structure for democratic campaign..

"The single biggest cause of the potential democratic disappointment in Florida Democrats at eight points worse there than Hillary did in two thousand sixteen in Miami Dade and President Trump's net approval rating was also about ten points better than it was in this twenty sixteen elections are the margin was ten point better. So that's fascinating. I talked to Steve shale our friend who ran Florida for Barack Obama doesn't eight hundred twelve to winning campaigns run a lot of other campaigns in Florida. He thinks the Miami Dade thing is troubling. He also thinks an even bigger issue was, you know, Trump really ran up the margins around Tampa in Orlando and a lot of those suburban urban counties. We won them Obama won the eight and twelve Trump on them at sixteen and it looks like to Santa's and Scott won them in eighteen actually Nelson. Did okay there. But that's I guess because his congressional seat is from there. So it does seem like those are still the swing counties in Florida and Democrats need to figure out how to win those. But what do you think of Florida? I'm worried about it. Because I think we have been somewhat out organized there. You know, I saw also in St. knew that he pointed out that the democratic registration advantage in the state his dropped efficiently in the last many years, and that's a problem, and it should be going the other direction because from appeared demographic point of view, the state should beginning more democratic and there are it is the of younger people moving there. You have a non-cuban Latino population is aging in the to the electorate there there continues to be a large segment of unregistered African Americans in the state had success in registering a lot of them, and oh twelve other still a lot more voters there you have Puerto Ricans who moved to Florida in recent years, but also since the hurricane who are eligible to vote. And if democ Democrats have very good case to make to them. And so there's there's an organization in organizational challenge part of it is been we at the state level until I think you'll. Campaign here we've been sort of getting our clock cleaned and a lot of races. And that has that has an impact right? Like, yeah. Like, what we we don't know if you'll come out ahead in the end, it would depending on the recount that's still pending. But prior to that Democrats have not had the governorship in this century sprite. And so that just is going to affect it over time. And you can't just have Brock Obama come in two thousand and eight on a wave of enthusiasm and win the election and then organize the state from the purchase the White House with you know, with tremendous resources in two thousand and twelve and then expect that to change the direction of politics safer there. It Florida is the great warning that we should have all heeded after twelve demographics are not destiny, right? You half to if the work in and you also have to appeal to as broad across section voters as possible..

He said, no, he's he's that money to now fun negative ads. Now, I'm not calling Mr. Disentis a racist. I'm simply saying the racist believe he's a racist. That simple the racist. Believe he's a racist. Doesn't matter. What I think when the racist believed that you're on their side. Guess what you just did? You bold in the racists. It really is that simple. And we gotta stop that you don't endorse. You don't embolden? You don't support in any way, shape or form, the racists, the white supremacists? The white nationalist those who want to kill black people for being black those who want to kill Jews for being Jews. You can be pro Israel and still support the white supremacists. Here in your complicit actions by not rejecting them when they say, we love you President Trump, you're supporting our white roots. Four one five eight hundred eighty eight ten rob in Richmond. Rob you're on KGHM with Ethan. Barry, Trump after Charlottesville set immediately that he condemned all eight it took him a day or two to name the white. That's not immediate. Then that contradicts. What you just said. Because you said immediately. It wasn't immediate. It was a day or two hate you said he used. Hey, listen to me. He said he condemned all hate groups, then he named them later. And guess what? He was talking about the nice people. They're Charlottesville were those that were supporting steeping the. The confederacy and by the way, Robert Bowers is a Trump loathing anti-semites whose Luca was right in the sense. And I'm a part Jew. So don't talk to me about you. Judaism theirself, aiding Jews, rob. Well, I'm not one of them. Okay. I loved and I love I wish I could vote for BB Netanyahu for president. But anyway. You know, what Luca was right in this sense that Robert Bowers likely was triggered. He had a lifelong hatred of Jews, but what triggered him could be Trump Trump's pro semitic policies. That's not what. Rubbed that wasn't what it was they'll come on man, you're smarter than that. I know because you call me regularly. Here's what the mass murderer domestic terrorist. Jew. Hater did he very specifically called out and said there is no Maga is long as there is a infestations. I can say that because I'm Jewish. And then Secondly, this guy specifically pointed out that it was the caravan funded by sore rose that was going to replace him. That was the genocide against Trump is against the caravan. Trump is the one who's made it such a big deal, which by the way that number is down to three thousand dwindling as it works its way through Mexico. So it's not the big issue that everybody wants. I mean, we can still have broader immigration issue and sovereignty issued cetera. But the point out the caravan. That's what triggered this guy was the caravan, and it's very clear from his posts, rob. And Michael Bloomberg said recently that he's for free trade and open borders and the Judaism, but Michael boomer has nothing to do with it. But when people like him are saying open borders open borders, then it gives creeps like this Robert Bowers the fuel to say, hey, my natural is a better than t Theodore Roosevelt's nationalism or Lincoln's nationalism. I want real nationalism. I'll show you what real nationalism is. And you guys are fomenting that by not give. Allowing regular every day, nationalist, a patriotic American who whether because nationalism isn't nationalism, and it hasn't been since the nineteen thirties and for Trump to try to redefine it is a false narrative. Anyway, rob, you know, this stuff man, you're an educated human. I know this about you nationalism. Since the nineteen thirties has meant one thing. And one thing only not patriotism, nationalism has meant ethnic purity within the borders of the country. It is not a nice thing. It isn't a patriotic thing.
