"holy majoli" Discussed on Mueller, She Wrote

"Care to the folks on our network team. So thank you all right. Holy majoli what newsweek. Let's jump in with just the facts. All right let's start with michael of a federal judge in southern california a mistrial on tuesday in a fraud case against him giving the brash former lawyer for stormy daniels rare victory as he fights his conviction and sentence in another criminal case and awaits trial in third. The judge here though james celena of the us district court in santa ana found that federal prosecutors had withheld for mr ave ninety s defense team financial data. They had collected as part of their case accusing him of stealing millions of dollars from five clients and lying repeatedly about his business and income. Mr had contended that the accounting and tax preparation data from his law firm servers was exculpatory. Evidence that could clear him of the charges. He asked judge celena in august. Fifteenth into motion to dismiss the charge. Granting new trial the judge set a tentative new trial date for october twelfth quote. I think today is obviously a good day for me personally. But it's also a good day for every individual in this country who is charged with a crime and faces power and resources the government. That's what mr ozzie said in a phone interview on tuesday. Every american citizen deserves basic fundamental due process. Whatever why And really this is just prolonging the inevitable. I don't think the data that they found was that exculpatory just that it existed is what gives him a new trial. A spokesman for the us attorney's office in los angeles declined to comment citing the continuing proceedings. Which is good. That's what you're supposed to do. The website law dot com early reported the mistrial which As the testimony in the fraud case was entering its sixth week. There were six weeks into this trial quote. I find that prejudice occurred in a number of ways. Says judge celena In july a federal judge in manhattan's ninety two two and a half years in prison in three years of supervised release after he was convicted in february. Two thousand twenty of trying to extort more than twenty million from nike. So he's still on the hook for that and he's got a third trial pending and this one is just being delayed. Well retried. i should say. Mr armani spent several months last year in the metropolitan correctional center in lower manhattan after the judge sided with prosecutors and ordered he'd be held without bail he. He was temporary released from jail. And april twenty twenty because of the cova pandemic during the extortion trial prosecutors. So the naughty threatened to reveal how employees in nike's grassroots basketball division had paid athletes to attend certain colleges unless the company hired him to conduct an internal investigation. His silence also could have been bought. Prosecutor said if nike paid him. Twenty two point five million to resolve the potential claims of a youth basketball coach whom naughty said he represented. Mr. ati had been scheduled to report to federal prison. by september. fifteenth is appealing his conviction and sentencing in the extortion case for nike. It's one of several criminal entanglements facing the publicity-minded lawyer who now just has to focus his energy on not going to prison and in another criminal case in which he awaits trial avenue. He's been accused of stealing three hundred thousand dollars in proceeds from a book written by stormy daniels. He maintains his innocence. In that case as well in california federal prosecutors in the fraud case said the audi- had lied about his business income not just to his clients but also to the irs a collection agent creditors and bankruptcy court and a bankruptcy trustee of nutty said tuesday. The government had suppressed key evidence. That would prove his innocence. I doubt it quote. But if i can be denied that due as a well known white guy imagine what. It looks like for people who are disadvantaged or black or brown..

"No mr green. Communism is just a red herring like all members of the oldest profession. I'm a capitalist. Hello and welcome to muller she wrote and holy majoli. We had one hell of a friday news dump this weekend. The department of justice is not fucking around my friends and we love to see it so much has happened. That indicates this justice department is not just going to ignore the former administration and their misdeeds. And i'm glad we were all a little patient. When merrick garland and there are still more litmus tests for me believe me. And i still am against a couple of the decisions that he's made. I add three red lines. I was hoping this justice department wouldn't cross and they eliminated two of them for me this week. So now there's only one left knows. Three red lines were if the department of justice represented mo brooks which. They decided this week not to do. If the department of justice represented trump in the insurrection lawsuits which they clearly said they weren't going to in the mo brooks decision and so those two are gone but the third one remains if the doj announces they will not pursue obstruction of justice charges against a former guy. Red line for me. So yeah with that decision this week. For maine justice that they want the court to deny certification of mo brooks speech at the ellipse being within the scope of his job as a congressman basically. They're saying he his speech is we can't step in. As a defendant for mo brooks and mo brooks asked the department of justice to they said we cannot we can't because instigate i'll tell you why in a minute but it the the message. The message was loud and clear need some information clear clear. This is clear they will not defend mo brooks speech nor would they defend any federal employees that instigated the attack on the capital. So i it's not just it wasn't just about because the the first reason they gave and i did a deep dive on this decision a couple of days ago on the daily beans so check that out but the general gist was mo brooks given a campaign speech campaign speeches and party your job and hey court if you don't agree with us that this was a campaign speech then fall back on this to deny it. Instigating insurrection is not within the scope of the job of a congressperson or any federal employees. So that wiped out mo brooks and trump and julia while guiliani is not a federal employees but any congressperson who did that and trump junior as well. I believe he was considered a federal employee. I can't remember though maybe not might just be kushner anyway. Like i said check out that episode of the daily beans but today on miller she wrote. I'm going to cover a lot of the friday news dump and some other stories and i'm happy to announce we'll be chatting later in the show with anne mccabe always excited to speak to andy. He brings such a good and important perspective. So all right. Let's get kicked off. Let's jump into the headlines with just the facts all right first up russian hackers. The ones behind the massive solar winds cyber espionage campaign broke into the email accounts of some of the most prominent federal prosecutors offices around the country last year. that's according to the justice department. Who said this on friday. The department said eighty percent of microsoft email accounts used by employees in the four. Us attorney's offices in new york were breached all told the justice department said twenty-seven us attorney's offices had at least one employs email account compromise during the hacking campaign. The justice department said in a statement that it believes the accounts were compromised from may seventh to december twenty seventh twenty twenty summer. Twenty-seventh is an interesting date. Because that's the day that trump made the call to the justice department and pressured them to announce that the election was corrupt. And he would take it from there. That's more crazy news. That dropped this. Friday notes from donahue. And we'll talk about that With anne mccabe now. Such a timeframe is notable because the solar winds campaign which infiltrated dozens of private sector companies and think tanks as well as at least nine. Us government agencies was first discovered and publicized in mid december. Twenty twenty and biden said tuesday that he'd been briefed on russian efforts to spread misinformation related to twenty twenty two. The midterm elections quote. Look what. Russia is doing already about the twenty twenty two elections and misinformation this during a speech at the o. Dna he referenced. information That he said was contained in his private president's daily brief it's a pure violation of our sovereignty biden said the intelligence community needs to take on the rampant information. That's making it harder and harder for people to assess the facts and be able to make decisions buying repeatedly referenced. Russian president putin during his remarks suggesting at one point he believes russia's weakened economy makes putin more dangerous in the cyber realm the intelligence community previously assessed that russia sought to interfere in two thousand sixteen and twenty twenty on orders from putin. Now report made public last year Or excuse me earlier. This year said russia acted to boost former trump's campaign and damaged biden's candidacy. Russia has denied it all. So that's that's going on. Us attorney's offices they're all sorts of interesting information on some prosecutions that may have been sitting there cleaning. Maybe tom barrack. Although i guess nobody tipped him off because he was arrested in los angeles surprise and we have a ton of news from the justice department. Like i said i. Main justice announced they would not invoked executive privilege for potential testimony from former trump. doj officials including folks. Like jeffrey rosen. And richard donahue and then and then they handed over several pages of contemporaneous notes written by donohue during a phone call between trump and his acting attorney. General jeffrey rosen. That sound an awful lot like the phone call. Trump had was zielinski that led to his first impeachment..

"And that is exactly what they're doing. Good afternoon. I'm Pat Thurston. Holy majoli's. Okay. This story is actually a few days old, but it comes out of the biz journals dot com PG any electricity rates could double from more wildfires, according to a utility expert. Okay. So in a memo that was prepared for the governor's office. Gavin Newsom office, Steven Weissman who is a lecturer at UC Berkeley's Goldman school of public policy. He is also a former administrative law judge at the C P. You see the California Public utilities commission. He stated that if wildfires continue as they have in the past two years, the average electricity customer statewide would experience a fifty percent rate hike in the first year. Here. He calls it. Simple math. I call it balderdash. He said peachy any estimate thirty billion dollars in damages for twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen fires but the operating revenue of its electricity. Business is less than thirteen billion dollars a year. Why spin argued that while one time losses can be spread over years by borrowing money that strategy doesn't work if the losses recur every year and if future fires with similar liabilities occur? They say. Yeah. PGA would not be able to cover the new losses by selling bonds. But you know, what I'm thinking I'm thinking, you know, what how about they just start doing their jobs. So that they stop killing people. Look part of what's going on. And we've discussed this before part of what's going on with the wildfires in the state of California has to do with the long drought that we suffered under. I think we're officially out of the drought. Now, I think Caroline would you find out are we officially out of the drought? I think we are. So we don't really have to worry about that. So much right now another part of it does have to do with global climate change with global climate change. A lot of different things are happening that affect foliage that affect the Beatles that affect wildlife, it affects a lot of things and all of these things are intertwined all of it works again there. But the other thing we know and a major player now in this that we are finding out is PG e we are out of the drought. Thank you and page it that was my producer. Caroline copeland. Thank you, so much PG is one of the factors here because they have not done what they have to do in order to ensure. Sure, first of all of the greatest safety that they possibly can replacing things to ensure safety where it is necessary and keeping the damn area cleaned out. They have to keep the brush they have to keep the areas where the lines are above ground and their traveling through these they have to keep that clean. They have to clear the brush away, they have to keep the smaller trees away, they have to clean it a Cape it as clean as they possibly can end. They're not they're not doing it. Peachy any has been implicated in some of these fires fires that have resulted in death. So this is now our killer utility. And so what the killer utility is saying is golly these fires. You guys are holding us responsible. And when you do that, we're going to have to charge you. This this utility this PGA has been so utterly irresponsible has has been guilty of malfeasance, and we become aware of the malfeasance for a long time. I think they got away with it. Because we didn't know to ask the questions we didn't realize how much culpability they might have. You know, a change though that San Bruno San Bruno made people go what? It did what PGA did not do. What are you kidding? There may be others. There may be other gas lines that are causing dangerous in areas around the bay area. What you mean, my neighborhood could be affected what an explosion people died homes were destroyed what when that happened. And we asked so many what we didn't like the answers we were getting and so when other things have happened, and we hear PG name. Boy, we want some answers, and we're not gonna just take the company line. We want investigations we wanna know what's going on. And when PG immediately comes out and says while there may have been a problem at such and such we believe that we had an issue. Well, okay. That right. There tells you investigate more because they're already admitting it, and then we have the issues that occur in when the fire start, and when they spread and they spread with kind of speed that they have they're causing massive devastation, massive dis-. -struction and yes death. But what they wanna do is. They wanna put it on the shoulders of the ratepayers. So for all the things they do wrong. They don't want to be held responsible. What about some of the people PG the people who have established the policies? They're the people who are cutting back on on expenses, or for whatever reason they give they're not doing following the safety procedures that they need to be following. What about those people facing actual criminal penalties? What about that? Instead when we think of a company when we think of a corporation corporations are people, my friend, according to Mitt Romney. We don't think about them and their Cup ability as being actually criminal. They are criminals they have been charged criminally. So when are they going to have to pay criminal penalties? When are they going to have to pay jail time? When are they going to have to pay for that utility to be broken up? It's a massively large. Utility. And apparently, they can't handle it. So so there's that they want to raise the rates fifty percent. Guess what else? They're doing this. This is just a hoot. This is just absolutely amazing. The other thing that they're doing is. They are increasing the rate of pay for the the CEO that they have just hired to replace their previous CEO. They wanna double the pay to the new CEO. I kid you not they wanna double the pay for the new CEO at PG, and and they have an, but by the way, they're in bankruptcy right now. Yeah, they're in bankruptcy. So the bankruptcy judge would have to approve this increase. So here they are. They're in bankruptcy. There are major concerns about their culpability with the wildfires. And whether there. Doing what they need to do as the season. Is opening up here where more wildfires may come? Are. They doing the right thing. So these things are going on. And now, they're incoming chief executive officer Bill Johnson will receive an annual base salary of two point five million dollars for a three year contract. That's more than twice the base salary of former CEO geisha Williams. This guy is finishing up a six year stint stint as president and CEO of the Knoxville, Tennessee based public utility, Tennessee valley authority. He's also going to get on top of that. He's also going to get a one time transition payment, you're gonna transition payment. Kenny, I don't even know what that is for from one job to another. That's what it sounds like from Tennessee valley authority to PG any. He's getting a one time transition payment of three million dollars on his first day on the job. Oh, a Moran. I mean, we were you here. When I said two point five million dollar a base salary annual base. Owlry? Who could live on anything? Okay. So he's going to get that plus an annual equity award of about three point five million dollars. I mean, this is stunning to me. This is absolutely stunning to me. Stunning. Oh, by the way, the last CEO resigned in January on the eve of PG. Bankruptcy collected a severance package of two point five million dollars in cash ridiculous. Yeah. But they want the ratepayers they wanted double the electricity charges if there are more wildfires, and I gotta tell you this if peachy and is responsible for those wildfires. Something else has to happen. Now, if we had the opportunity we would move we would say, we don't want our electric city from you. We want somebody else to provide us our city service because you are inept incompetent dangerous that is what we would say. We don't have very many choices not where PG any operates some small areas. Do have choices. They have municipal utilities. That's what it seems like needs to happen with the entire PG any that is much as possible. This sucker needs to be broken up, and we need to establish it in. In. Smaller increments that are manageable. That are manageable eighty eighty eight ten it just doesn't work to throw money toward payouts. You have to fix the problem. So that there aren't more wildfires in lines blowing down in the wind. And you know, all the all the complaining that was going on. It wasn't that long ago when they were going to the bankruptcy judge and saying and we wanna pair employee bonuses. What you're in bankruptcy your criminal corporation. You have been charged criminally. You are a criminal company. You're in bankruptcy. You are liable for all of this damage. You have killed people. And you wanna give bonuses to your workers? I mean, I think it was just so offensive. It was so offensive to hear that. Let's go to the phone calls. Eighty eighty eight tennis the telephone number eight oh eight oh, eight ten and you know this. Here's a couple of things I want to tell you real quick. And then we'll get your you. Get your phone calls. We need to find alternatives. We need to be seeking alternative forms of energy. And in one regard, maybe PG Aeneas doing us a favor. Maybe they're pushing us toward making that a priority in our lives. There are certain things we need to start making priorities in our lives. You know, getting off a fossil fuels getting rid of PG knee in your life. And and whatever you need to do is an alternative form of energy that has to be some we focus on and getting rid of plastics in our lives. These are things we need to start focusing on very very quickly. And right now PGA may push us over the edge in that one area. So that we do establish it as a priority and start making changes eight ten is the telephone number eight oh eight oh, eight ten. Do. You think PGN is worth it. Do you think the CEO is worth a do? You think the bankruptcy judge for the northern district of California? Should okay? This compensation package. Let's go to Dennis. He's in Vacaville. Hey, Dennis welcome to K GO. Dennis. Hi, you're on the air. Get this from speaker over the phone you exceeded now, I can tell the difference. California. I think shares part of the responsibility by not upgrading their water plan, and this wonderful snowpack is going to melt with the global warming quickly. This summer is not going to be there like the old days. Snow some of it alter the summer is not going to happen. And it's gonna flush out through the Golden Gate. They need to start pumping water to the central valley with the whole idea that the farmlands that have had to Auster Cise away from farming. We don't have water for you is what they've been told. They need to give them the all this good water. And if they have to damn it somewhere. So they can hold it. And I don't mean these Ridler dams. I'm thinking damn out ocean rise, maybe the Golden Gate or Richmond centre Phil bridge, or the carquinez strait s- something like that where you'd have freshwater saltwater barrier, and you can control the excess flows, but hold it. I'm sorry. Dennis. I don't understand how this relates to PGN in the wildfires in that if you can get that water into the use in the valley, the plants will event will breathe it out. You'll go up make summer clouds, and what would have been little wisps will turn into clouds will get summer rain. And we'll go back to a climate similar to say the nineteen sixties where we didn't have the dry, right? Yeah. But but but we, and it's the state's responsibility. Not just PG e. Okay. All right. I'll buy it that the state has to has to make changes in terms of its water management. I will buy that. Because I think there are things that go on. There have been a lot of arguments about the diversion of the river. And there are a lot of things that go on in terms of water, man. So I'll buy that droughts have occurred though in California history throughout our history. They are likely worsened because of the issues of global climate change. None of that though. Absolves PG any of its responsibility for not maintaining these areas that they're wires cross not maintaining them properly. They have liability in that regard of when the fires are starting there and win it's because they have been negligent. And this is the area. I believe that we need to not allow them to foist responsibility onto our shoulders. We have to say, no, we are not paying fifty percent more in order to pay the penalty for your mouth seasons in this. We want you to do the right thing and do the right thing. I so that fires are prevented. Remember smokey bear. Eight ten is the number. This is K G. O Pat Thurston on K G O. Hi, I'm RIC Edelman, and I have. Feeling that retirement is on your mind?.

"Today. And I'm Pat Thurston. Listen, I wanted to catch up on something before I move on. And that is a I haven't really paid enough attention to my emails, but I got a fascinating one from William that might be helpful to people. First of all he tells me that he was at Costco in Livermore yesterday and paid three fifty nine for a gallon of gas. This is encouraging. That's really good. So I don't know what the other Costco's are charging. But even when Jamie court was on with us earlier, he said that the cost goes down in southern California or quite a bit less like forty cents less than what the price of gas was at some of the other gas stations in the area. But William also says that he's learned over the past five years that he doesn't stop in town when he's traveling even way out in the desert areas, he said loves and TA stations are usually ten to twenty cents a gallon cheaper. I don't know what T A. I don't know. What loves MTA? I don't know what. Either one of those are he said once you leave. California. It's much cheaper needles. California's always the most expensive gas. He said I was through their last June for graduation. So this was almost a year ago, and it was four forty four for regular in needles that was a year ago. So that's got to have been a dollar a gallon anyway, higher than what it would have been in most of California. So I just wanted to give you that little update because I think those are those are very very good suggestions. But now we're gonna move to something else. And many of the things we're talking about today are kind of related there was this particular issue. This whole thing started with me about a week ago where there was a headline I read that said half of the bay area wants to move out. Yeah. And yesterday, then there was a story that was headlined feeling strapped on a four hundred thousand dollar income. That's the bay area. Also yesterday, we were told that Arkansas is a better place to live than San Francisco. That's according to a US news and World Report. Which makes me say Ouch. And these headlines are related because the cost of living in the bay area is Kuku crazy. I know you feel it and you likely resent it. I mean, seriously tell the truth have you done it have you gone online and looked real estate listings and other states compare the value of your home today to those in the mid west, Iowa, Indiana, Alabama, Tennessee, maybe the Carolinas in those states. You're going to see that for the money. You can get out of your house today here in the bay area. You can probably buy something resembling a mansion. In a different part of the country. You can look at beachfront or lakeside property, are you can maybe along the Gulf of Mexico in Alabama. I was looking at some of that this morning, and what you own here can get you a dream home in another part of the country and the same goes for people who rent, which you're paying for rent here would likely be a substantial mortgage payment on an awesome house somewhere else. So what's keeping you here? What's keeping you from moving? There's an annual report called the trust barometer for California it recently surveyed fifteen hundred California residents and five hundred of those fifteen hundred so fully third. We're from California. And they were surveying them about attitudes on technology the economy and the state of the state the state of our beloved California and fifty three percent of them said they're considering moving out of the state, and they cited as the most likely reasons the cost of housing and the overall cost of living. And for people who have children under the age of eighteen so families parents who have kids under the age of eighteen that number is sixty three percent. Sixty three percent of families in the bay area who were served. Said the considering moving out of the state among bay area residents. Seventy six percent say that housing is a very serious issue for California. Sixty eight percent agree. With this statement, businesses, make large profits while draining our local resources and straining our infrastructure. They owe it to the public to contribute more to solving local problems in the bay area. Fifty seven percent that they trust the tech industry to do the right thing. However, the figure goes down to thirty four percent when asked about social media overall trust in tech is actually up from what it was in in previous years, faith and social media remains essentially interchangeable with the results last year. And they're pretty dismal results. Do these numbers surprise you? Have you thought about leaving California? Why don't you? And what would make California more palatable? You know? I I know that we pay higher taxes in California. I don't mind paying the higher taxes in California. We we've always paid higher taxes, but we used to get more for it we paid higher taxes, and we had more of the money going into schools, we paid higher taxes, and we had free higher education for Californians at UC's if we got back to something like that. That would be a terrific star. Wouldn't it? So it's not the taxes per se. It's what the taxes are paying for or what they're not paying for. There's a concern that if this trend continues there's going to be a brain drain in California and most especially in the bay area. So you know, I'd like to think that everyone's doing better. And that's why housing costs are increasing as well as every other measurement or the cost of living in our area. But it really isn't true. They're an awful people here a lot lot of people here in the bay area whose communities are beginning to do better financially, but they themselves are being displaced not misplaced. We didn't lose them. They're being displaced. They're being forced out. So let's talk about whether or not you've considered moving. And have you done the thing where you go online? You actually search. I've done it. I did it. I did it this morning. I did it in Alabama in mobile, Alabama. I did it in a couple of places where you. Could get lakefront property lakefront beautiful lake for I'm talking on the lake and I was looking at what the approximate value of my house is currently that I live in and comparing my house to what you could get in some of these areas, holy Majoli's. And I know that if you really did some looking around, and if you're willing to leave the great state of California, you can find a probably a higher quality of life. Will you find a job that pays as much as you're making here that I do not know and tell you the truth, I don't even know how first time home buyers can ever make the leap in the bay area considering the median home price in the amount that's needed for a down payment. It seems totally out of reach for people who are looking to buy a house for the very first time, and it is a dirty damn shame. And let me add one other thing into this crisis are going to go up. I thought they had to stabilize at some point. They were going to start coming down. No right now, San Francisco's housing, Mark. This comes from the Wall Street Journal when the Wall Street Journal reports on financial information, I tend to believe them, and they're saying that San Francisco's housing market right now is bracing for an IPO millionaire wave now one thing I didn't know I live in Marin county an integral on there's a piece of property in Tiburon that's one hundred ten million dollars that they're sitting on. And now they're starting to. To reach out to some of these companies that are where they're getting where they're going public. You know, some of these companies that are going to have IPO's. And so they're saying that this IP oh money the millionaires that are starting to move into the bay area. It's going to cause the price of housing in this area to absolutely skyrocket. You think it's bad. Now, it's just going to be completely out of control pretty soon. So there are people who are sitting on property right now that they'd like to sell who are thinking they need to hold on until this boom comes and there are people who are trying to buy property right now who are really making an effort to try to get into something before the boom comes. I just don't know how people can afford to stay here. Eight ten is the telephone number, especially if you're looking to buy a house. So why are you here? Are you thinking of moving where would you go? And if you're not thinking of moving, but you realize that the cost of living here is so astronaut, Michael what's keeping you here. Eight hundred ten is the telephone number eighty eighty eight ten let's start with Lisa Lisa's calling from San Jose Haley's. Welcome to K G O. Hi, Pat, thanks for taking the call for me. It's very simple. You have a beautiful house on the lake, but when you step out of your house, you're in Arkansas that right there. But. There's living if not outside of real estate and granted, you know. I bought my house long time ago. Right. But outside of the real estate cost of living is not that different across the country. Our taxes are not the highest in the country. What we're having a problem with what they're trying to do the whole country right now is that we have corporations paying property taxes based on nineteen seventy two or whatever your product line was because of prop thirteen thirteen. Sorry. That's our biggest problem. But the bottom line is I can go to the theater, I can go to the beach and forty minutes. I can be skiing. An and for hours. I step out. I'm going to educate a place beautiful land. We're spoiled rotten, and I'm not Marcus. Aw. So you're so you're you're snob is is your California snob. My producer is to. She told me I'm a California snob. And I'm proud of it. And I've lived in other areas of the country. I've lived in Maryland Virginia. Washington DC, Indiana, Georgia and Florida, and you know, I'm here in California because a love California. That's why I came home. But this is my home. This is where I was born and reared where my family is. So I'm Doug in California. But in my issues, you know, when my daughter transferred out of state to go to college wanted to come back. They said that it doesn't matter where the grades are. She can't get into to the UC because we only take transfers because we're not able to support education anymore. But again, I get really tired of hearing people go we have the highest taxes. No, we don't if you look at it. We're we're in the upper twenty upper core trial, but we're not by any stretch the worst when people talk about cost of living. Yes, our guest prices are are a little are higher. We also have clean or because of it. But we don't have the heating costs that they have in the summertime in the winter. That's true. But in. Arkansas, you know, depending on where you live in Arkansas. It's it's you know, that's not so bad. And it's not just the gas all transportation costs. Here are are higher. You know, I went to Arkansas for for a day because we were in Branson, Missouri. We weren't Brampton for a week. You know, so we wanted to do something. Right. I can tell you where you can get confederate flag bikini, if you if you need one, I don't wanna live in a plan that a lot of money to me. That's true. You know, it's and thank you for that. Because it's true because each area has its own culture. And if that's the thing, that's keeping you here. You're willing to pay the price you're willing to sacrifice because of the culture and these other areas, that's true. But if you go to some of the bigger cities in some of these places like if you go to let's say, Indianapolis, Indiana or south bend, Indiana, south bend, Indiana. They elected a Buddha judge as their mayor south bend has the its its own issues right now, I wouldn't wanna live in south. But Indianapolis, not a bad place to live, and there's a, you know, a fairly progressive area. In indianapolis. I lived there. So so I know that that's true parts of Iowa the same way, but the cost of living. There is way way way less and you can. In live a better life. I mean, you can live up to own a save better life. I don't know if that's the right adjective, you can you can live a life. On less money. You can get more. If you live in one of these other cities, so why don't chew and have you checked it out and seen what you could get in another city. Eight ten is the telephone number eight oh eight oh, eight ten more of your phone calls coming up. I'm Pat Thurston on K geo, Pat Thurston on K G. I'm ready to take the next step. I'm ready for university. That will help me Vance in my education.

"holy majoli" Discussed on KGO 810

"Odd. K G O eight ten. Good afternoon. I'm Pat Thurston. Isn't it about time to make it easier for people to vote, you know, yesterday, we talked about with John Rothman here, we talked about the low turnout for elections. And that these this low turnout results in the very things American support to be opposed in Washington DC until is it time for us to really look at this. And if so HR one does that HR one is opposed by Republicans mitt Mitchell McConnell says this is a power grab by Democrats. What is it a power grab to say? More people in the United States of America should have their vote. Counted is it a power grab to say? We should make it make it easier for citizens in the United States of America to cast their votes. How would you describe that as a power grab eight hundred eighty eight ten is the telephone number and. Other than that. I mean, what do you think we can do to increase the participation of our citizenry the last election presidential election? I think the turnout was fifty seven fifty eight percent something like that Barack Obama's was sixty percent. And that was considered really high. It's it is pathetic. And magin. What would happen if we could take that number up to seventy five percent? Holy majoli's. The world would be turned on its head eight hundred eighty eight ten is the telephone number eighty eighty eight ten let's go to Matt in agnosio. Hey, Matt welcome to k- GO. Hi. Real quick. But just before let me just shoot this. What is it about? Mitch McConnell have an account about everything. Well, I think he thinks that's his job. You know, he's the Senate majority leader. So he thinks that's his job to have a cow only if if he's having a cow in regard to something that's been brought up by the Democrats. Yeah. I hear you. Things on on HR won the elections and. How do you feel in addition to voting by mail instead of having elections on November Tuesday's how about having elections on Friday Saturday and Sunday the first weekend in November on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Instead, right, right. I mean, wouldn't that be great? What do you think would happen? If we did that. Sure like to hope that if we did shift elections from Tuesdays to Friday Saturday and Sunday that somehow the motivate more people to vote and more people would be excited about voting on a Friday Saturday and Sunday, right? I I agree with you. I think that's exactly what the result would be. The result would be that more people would be able to get to the polls more people would be able to vote and potentially maybe some of this voter suppression would be suppressed itself because you'd have you'd have ample time for people to get their there wouldn't be the crowds that had to be there between like eight o'clock and six o'clock instead you'd have three solid days of voting that would be available to people. You know? Of course, those people who are interested in voter suppression were probably just closed down some of the locations. But that's one of the things contained in HR one to to try to attack. Some of these voter suppression effort, you know, to me, this is a. A completely American and incredibly patriotic Bill to try to make it. So that the American people can participate in our democratic process. That's the heart of the democratic process. The vote, right? Sure. One more thing. Sure. Okay. Yeah. Real quick for we as long as you're not gonna tell me. Stephen King killed John Lennon were good. Oh, no. No. No. That do you think that Donald Trump is eventually going to pardon Roger stone? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I do. And you know, it's funny. Matt I was thinking of Donald Trump and pardons today, and you know, there's a lot that's being made right now about Donald Trump's son, Don, jR, in jeopardy that he might be in and people are thinking that the process a special prosecutor that Robert Muller would be able to use the potential in or the actual indictment of Donald Trump's son in order to press, Donald Trump, and I think that's nonsense because as soon as there's a sufficient amount of pressure that comes down or if he is charged. Donald Trump will just pardon him. I mean, I just he's got enormous power sitting in that Oval Office. And I don't think he's afraid to wield it. Thank you, Matt. And he's not afraid to wheel. That he will pardon. Of course, he will he pardoned Joe are Pyo for pity's sake. Of course, he'll pardon Roger stone. A lifelong buddy of his eight ten is the telephone number. We go to Donna Donna is calling from Santa Rosa hate down. I welcome to Keiji out. Hi, I dare if you can start with the supreme court. Nola, find part of the voter what does that voters act? That was passed. They gutted part of out and immediately L O, you're talking about the civil rights Bill from the the voters Rights Act from the nineteen sixties. Yeah, you're right. They sure did that's got to be fixed too. I wonder if that's in there. What happened was Pat asked her dad when they a debt that at right right away. He Republican states started acting voter ID legislation. And if you look at the different states how they used that to suppress voter registration and African Americans particularly were impacted by that. Yes. Yes. And that's what they that's who they aimed at right because and if you look at the different stage and the different stay, and what they did to suppress the vote African American and college students. If you had in one state, I don't remember the names in one state, you could if you work at the college, you could use your employees. Are you look ide- right asking identification? Right. But you could not use your right as again affiliation. But you can look at everything they did in two different states. Jeremy injuring Nathan. Veggies gotten struck down Jeremy Andrine voter again if attention and then what they would do. And depending upon the county they would move to voting places. Yes. Way far away from like just one college and teach don't have cars in another place. What they did was. Yeah. See your polling places. They cut down on the number of polling places in urban areas with predominantly black and Brown people, and they would have fewer voting machines. Say would Dan a lot of those machines would not be working. They would have long lines. But if you went out into the suburbs. Oh, no, nobody was waiting plenty of. I know it's the kookiest thing. I mean, it was one of the UP even as we're watching this like on election day, and you would see it on CNN or MSNBC or even on FOX. They would show these long lines of people waiting to get into vote in various areas. It always seems so bizarre to me because it's never happened to me because I live in Marin county because when I go to vote I get out of my car. I get my kids out of the car. My husband and I walk into the voting booth. We walk right up to the table, we sign our names. We get our ballots vote were out, and it takes a total of three to four minutes or something like that. Because we already know how we're gonna vote and my kids get their stickers. I voted and it's just it's it's really something. So they can do that. You can have that kind of availability. You can have that kind of manpower in Marin county, but you can't do it in the in the deep south of Alabama. Instead, you have to make people stand in line for hours on end. Bad. It is Republican states in Ohio. What they did. Because they have the souls to the polls Sunday, right and dad, all the black churches St. Nick arrangements for buses car pooling and everything to get people to suppose because most people a lot of blacks were on Saturday Cindy's best date and after church in Ohio. What the governor did is that he said to make it fair that would be one polling place in every county. Well, in a lot of counties in Ohio, you don't even have any blacks. But in urban areas was true cities like Toledo and Cleveland. I think and they had one polling place, and it was at the office. I think and it was access by three story parking lot. And you had. People wind up from that door all the way out to the parking choose the street and around the corner ridiculous people who was waiting and waiting, but then late afternoon only evening people had to leave because they had to go to work. This isn't just a sample pad. Yeah. And here, right? When you said earlier, you said it's intentional. It is. It's calculated it's strategic. It's intentional. It is voter suppression. It is anti patriotic is anti American, and it was the great GOP power grab that. Now, there is an attempt to remedy and that is HR one HR one brought forth by Democrats in the house of representatives supported by some Republicans in the house of representatives. Mitch McConnell says it's a power grab by the Democrats a power grab to ensure to make it easier for people in this country for citizens of this country to cast. Their vote. How can that possibly be termed a power grab? But the other thing they don't want Donna, I'm sure you agree on this the other thing, they absolutely do not want is the requirement that candidates release their tax returns. And the only reason they put that in there was because of Donald Trump, and I'm so glad they did it people need to be informed. If we're not informed than the votes that we cast are not informed votes. You know, where we have to be making decisions that are smart, and you can only make a smart decision. If you have the information that's necessary to make that decision. If we don't know what Donald Trump's financial interests are if we don't know if he's lying through his teeth about his involvements in in in entanglements with Russia. If we don't know that his worth is what he says his worth is. Then we don't really know what we're doing. When we cast our vote. Eight hundred eighty eight ten is the telephone number. Thank you, Donna, eighty eighty eight ten..
