Trish Regan Knows How Bidenflation Will Affect the Average US Consumer
"We've got the report from Bloomberg, a group of economists have said that you can expect Americans should expect to have to increase or find for their budget and extra $5200 this year for inflation purposes alone. That's the reality that you can comment on and then this from Washington state governed governor Jay inslee has just signed a bill that will ban all fossil fuel field vehicles by 2030 in the state. So it's going to be just teslas and priuses in the state of Washington. Your reaction. A bad time and on that one. Look, I mean, we need all the help we can get because we are facing satire oil prices, which means higher prices at the gas pumps, which by the way, means higher prices for everything, right? From food because it's going to get from point a to point B not to mention we've now lost the bread basket that is Ukraine, right? So a lot of things are going to be going up in price. I think that Bloomberg is right when they point to economists saying a $5000 increase, I think that's exactly what you're going to be looking at possibly even more. We'll see, you know, once inflation starts, sometimes these things kind of get rolling, Seb, and you have a supply chain crisis that won't end, combined with money printing, like you've never seen, combined with really, really bad policy choices. I mean, I'm frustrated and I may have said this to you last week because it seems as though our intelligence folks that they knew this was coming, right? They knew that Putin for years. They've known he was at risk of doing something quite like this. So why weren't we doing a better job at making sure that we had locked up our own energy sources right here in the United States of America, knowing that we would be exposed to this vulnerability? And then you got people that clearly clearly don't have all the wires connecting in the head. They're out there in Washington saying, okay, we're going to ban vehicles other than EVs. It's actually mind boggling and it's frustrating because I know how hard this is going to hurt the American consumer. And

The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT
"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

"Method governor Jay Inslee says well the concept is easy enough to understand isolating yourself at home all six opens up a host of concerts when people isolate in their homes it's not just them wrapped isolate their whole household has to isolate that means they can't be going outside of the house except maybe for a moment so walk around the house so that's gonna be very challenging for families a family member with Kobe nineteen is supposed to use different household items like dishes towels and bed sheets it's recommended they use a different bathroom and if possible avoid all contact with other people in the house it is one place where we can all be supportive of one another those folks are going to need people to do grocery shopping for them and you know friends can do that we're gonna have some capacity to do that because well but that isolation is absolutely critical if we're not going to go back to a reemergence of this virus and then there are the people who don't have a good place to isolates they could be living with the vulnerable family member or be homeless Jim Baumgart as a policy adviser with the governor's office on Human Services and he says if a person with cobra nineteen can't self isolated home it's up to local health offices to provide them with a place to stay this is a medical intervention so there needs to be a minimum amount of static to help monitor somebody through this and make sure that they don't have any problems each jurisdiction does that a little differently so rather than the state directing it local governments have have been looking at how they do that and each one might have a different flavor on how they create that isolation capability for those who cannot do it at home in king county for example it's bought up vacant motels to house people who have nowhere else to isolates the state department of health says R. V.'s in high school gymnasiums are some other options whether your social distancing or fully isolating this mass quarantine has alarm social scientists right now we know with this crisis that there are many risk factors for the oppression the amount of stress that people are under the amount of loss that people are experiencing a financial crisis in particular all of these risk factors are in place for like a perfect storm of depression as Jonathan cancer he's a psychologist and the director of the university of Washington's center for the science of social connection he's leading a local study to see how we're coping with social distancing we're surveying five hundred king county residents we started over a month ago we actually started on March fourteenth which was the day after that governor mandated statewide closures of schools and we are tracking people for it seventy five days every evening on their smartphones with that for a short survey just takes about three minutes to complete asking them about how they're doing how they're feeling depression anxiety feeling overwhelmed loneliness social isolation all of that stuff at first when all this was coming down and hitting the community really hard people were fairly overwhelmed there was a lot of anxiety there was a lot of rumination and constant thinking about the virus and about all these issues and what we've seen over the month and a half now is that people are doing better and better over time the trends are all looking pretty good yeah one of the questions on the survey I saw is how lonely do you feel on a scale of one to ten what are those numbers showing around king county on average in that scale of zero to ten actually with zero being not lonely at all ten being extremely lonely king county residents on average in our survey are scoring about three that's now remarkably low well it's low but it's not as low as we would expect really in normal times and in addition to that I would say there's tremendous variability from person to person so while on average the county is showing us three and it's gone down a little bit it was a little higher than the three at first now it's closer to two point five actually in our latest data but some people are all the way down to zero and there's been a zero from day one and some people are all the way up at ten and it's been close to ten since day one as well so on average people are doing really well and that's good news but people are different it's a big community lots of people are struggling in responding in different ways and sort of course concerned about those who are up at the higher end are you able to track demographics for instance someone who is it ten what kind of situation are they in and someone who's that is zero are they you know more well off for instance where you are definitely able to track those variables trying to identify essentially who's at most risk not just for loneliness but for depression for an anxiety for alcohol problems and so forth I can speak briefly about the depression and loneliness findings because depression and loneliness are actually quite closely related to each other if you're feeling really lonely then you're also going to be feeling really depressed and also anxieties related as well so those people who are most stressed right now I'm feeling overwhelmed are also feeling the loneliest stand are also feeling the most depressed and you know it doesn't necessarily take brain science to figure out who those people who are more stressed and overwhelmed are right now we pretty much know that some people are really being hit much much harder by this crisis than others and also sort of obvious contenders are the ones that worried about people who are really having deep financial problems right now is lost their jobs are trying to figure out how to pay the rent or maybe even can't pay the rent people who have closer experiences with the virus either in their loved ones or their family members people who are on the front lines people have essential jobs right now I have to keep going to work healthcare workers and so forth those are all the people who wear more concerned about the survey is it is it mainly just that that number scale or are you are people offering anecdotes and and and responses to how they're feeling we started a national version of the survey as well and in the national version people are giving us more feedback we have a couple of questions for people are giving us feedback and so we are hearing and richer detail how people around the country as well as Seattle are doing as well right now people are all over the map and I think that's really the primary story here is that there isn't just one story some people are really struggling people people who have four or five kids at home and they're just overwhelmed by dealing with other kids other people who are living alone and have lost their primary sources of social contact and are struggling with loneliness and then some people believe it or not are really thriving right now this crisis has landed on them in a way that really lands in their wheelhouse and they're doing quite well for example I know of one person who before the crisis really struggled with a decent amount of social anxiety didn't enjoy getting up going to work all day because it was stressful and that's been removed from this person's life and they're pretty happy being relatively alone and having more time to spend with her thoughts and that doesn't seem to be changing over time either so people are really responding differently to the aspen again on average people are doing well but it's important to note there's not just one story here I wonder has your outlook on the situation changed at all based on other people's responses I would say it's been fairly humbling and I suspect other social scientists would agree so for example at first we were really concerned about a wave of loneliness that was going to ripple through our society because of the social distancing and that's not what we found we actually are finding that most people are coping pretty well and there's been more and more talk right now but the difference between physical distancing and loneliness which is a psychological phenomenon in other words we know a lot about loneliness in normal times when somebody feels separated from our rejected by a group when there is an experience that everyone's getting along and connected and I'm not a part of it that's you know traditionally how we see loneliness and that's actually not what's happening right now what's happening right now is everyone is socially isolating together and mass and so at first instead of loneliness we actually saw really high levels of people feeling a sense of connection in solidarity with each other that's actually gone down somewhat over the month and a half since we started tracking people but I think it's been humbling to recognize that we can't necessarily take all the signs that we've known from previous research a normative times and apply it right now because so much of what's happening right now is unique yeah it's interesting concept that everybody's lonely but everybody's lonely together I think that's a good way to put it people experience losses or they lose their jobs but nobody else has in the past and that's what makes people depressed I've lost my job and it's my fault and everyone else is doing fine that's not necessarily what's happening right now and so in some ways the crisis actually is offering some factors that are protecting people against having normal experiences of clinical depression people are feeling a lot right now they're feeling stress depression and anxiety but it's not necessarily turning into disorder people are still functioning and I think that's again because it's all happening to all of us at the same time and that's helping us cope better yeah it says something about the human spirit and and resiliency to I think that's then if there is a silver lining to all of this and I'm cautious to talk about server lines because I recognize some people are really struggling right now in the struggle is not going to end anytime soon but if there is a silver lining to this I think it is and witnessing the resiliency of human beings witnessing what scientists like myself have known for years the importance of human connection the importance of reaching out to others and supporting each other and seeing how so many of us are just yearning for in doing this naturally so yeah for somebody like myself it's an opportunity to try to help them to try to do some good but also an opportunity to stand back and look at.

"inslee" Discussed on Climate 2020
"Inslee he was at the governor's mansion. We had a chance to speak to him. At length about all aspects of the climate change issue and as Usual Governor Inslee was quite astute in his breakdown of the climate and energy issues there will be elements of that interview. That did not air. The first time that I think Folks will find quite fascinating. Yeah well I'm Jay Inslee. I'm lucky to be governor of the state of Washington and the grandfather of three and the new granddaughter coming in December and right now Olympia Washington. Everything's grade. Let's sort of jump right into it so president. Trump's weakness is the biggest weakness and it's known as a wedge issue political advisors. That's known as a winning issue to average voters is the environment and climate and so a candidate can exploit like that in a general election. Why don't know but I do know my perception and that is that Donald Trump essentially gave us a tell. You know when you play poker in your opponent. You look for that tells you what the what cards they haven't. And there was a big tell when donald trump went out and claim to be an environmentalist couple months ago and that was tell to show the he even understands. He's so vulnerable and weak on this issue. He knows that He's got no excuse for his terrible record. And I believe that you you always go after your opponent at their weakest point with our strongest position and I do believe it's on climate change because it's the biggest delta between the absurdity of Climate Denial Nile Donald Trump and the economic growth and positive optimistic message of Democrat. So very much I think we ought to. We ought to make this a prime part of our strategy and therefore I encourage all candidates to make this one of the highlighted issues. There is no excuse. Donald Trump has is no place to stand on this issue whatsoever. It's laughable what his position is so we ought to really drive this right through the heart the Republican intransigence on this including Donald Trump's position and I hope all candidates take that take that strategic position. So I'm I'm glad you raised that. Because as luck or circumstance would have it. We interviewed WANT TO DONALD TRUMP's top two remaining pollsters. He's gotten rid of most of his pollsters but John McLaughlin glaucous. WHO's one of the two that remains agreed to sit down with us and describe how they're gonNA try to deal with this issue? In the general election they're going to hammer hammer away. At China they feel like president trump feels like he's the he's he's the candidate who is holding China's feet to the fire you're Through their trade deals and others that China and the argument is that you know why should the United States Act of China's not going to act the second big point that trump's pollster mentioned was the economy and that why should American voters who are only making fifty sixty thousand dollars a year half to absorb two thousand thousand dollars in increased energy costs so they focused on the cost argument. Just curious if you're if you're the candidate or perhaps the vice presidential nominee to Mrs Warren And how would you flip that on on. Its head well I would say. Donald trump is a sucker for China. He's a loser. When it comes to China when it comes to climate change because he has in effect given an excuse to China for inaction he is he is allowed? He's opened the door to China to to take no action on climate change because the best excuse China would have for not acting on climate change would would be if the US does nothing so he basically has taken our moral high ground away from us if we act on climate change. We have a legitimate reason to demand. Hand China to move. If we don't act on climate change we got no no moral ground to stand on so I would say he's got the biggest loser attitude to when it comes to this now. The fact of the matter China is acting on climate change domestically. They're making significant efforts to reduce our dependence in some coal fired plants and that's good news but they need to accelerate their efforts particularly in their international portfolio where there are financing fossil fuel plants around the world so we have a lot of work to do to get China to accelerate their commitment. But you can't very well do that when you're not doing diddley squat. What in our own country so no I think Donald Trump has got the dumbest policy possible if you want to to command respect of China A and B. on the moral high ground you gotta get rid of Donald Trump's so we can do that that's number one on the cost issue? Look we WANNA reduce costs ultimately for energy for Americans and I'll tell you what I would love. Americans to to reduce their gasoline prices. Not by nickel non by twenty five cents Gallen but to get their gasoline prices down to zero. And that's what happens when you driving electric car and so we have plans in our state we now have fifty thousand electric three cars in our in consumers hands today. Those people aren't paying a penny for gasoline and and we believe that by putting in charging stations having increasing access to to to wait finance electric cars and the original capital costs. We're GONNA drive. Energy costs down on and transportation. We're doing that big time for taxpayers. Today I just had a meeting this afternoon with my team. We are now in the stages of building lean seventeen net zero office buildings for the state of Washington and when your net zero that means that your taxpayers are paying zero for energy energy costs so we believe over the long term. We are have the best route to reduce energy costs for consumers and businesses and tax payers alike. Look this is trump wants to remain shackled to the to the gasoline pipeline to Saudi Arabia. where he wants to send our military where we just have to spend in billions from protecting oil shakes and protecting the monopoly the oil and gas industry? So we're happy to have that argument with him. I I believe we're the best side not only history but of politics because people understand a good deal and that's not having to pay for gasoline. Yeah if we are witnessing missing the end of the internal combustion engine and goes to zero emission vehicles and where people don't have to pay for gas. Those costs go away is the economic opportunity. Argument accounted founded. This cost argument that we've heard probably for almost a quarter century now that it's just too costly to go through an energy transition. The economic opportunity argument is that there may be five six seven times as many solar jobs every fossil fuel job. That's lost and that there are lots of economists who believe that a renewable energy in a clean energy economy That that is emerging. Maybe the next really big Global Industry that can jump start. The global economy is that is that a legitimate argument to make back in American twenty twenty. Well I believe it is because I wrote a whole book on it ten years ago so once you read a book on something. You kinda swallowed the Kool aid but I really. They do believe that. And what I predicted in my coauthor Bracken Hendricks predicted that we would have a huge expansion of electric cars of solar our panel manufacturing plants of wind turbines and all of those things are happening actually faster than we thought that they would Look the cost in the reason is is that the price of these sources of energy are coming down so fast. The cost of solar panels of solar install. All this come down about eighty percent in the last decade. The cost of wind power is come down twenty percent and will continue to come down the price of the efficiency. He is coming down. Dramatically and efficiency is frequently forgotten is is an energy source in itself. So we're we're seeing a massive expansion in a renewable energy because costs have come down so dramatically and because of that people have money more money to spend on going to the movies and putting their kids through college and that's what's happening happening is happening through a combination of policies in states like mine where we've embraced a renewable portfolio standard that has created a seven and billion dollar wind turbine industry thousands of people to work and giving people reasonably priced energy and has happened because of technological advances were brilliant entrepreneurs tre preneurs and scientists and machinists or or building. These great new products. You CAN'T I. It's just been mind. Boggling how fast is transition is taking place place but it's not going fast enough yet that's why we need to continue to have policies to accelerate that in the reason for that is that climate change is going a lot faster than we. We thought it was going to. So we're in a race. We're running really hard and we're running really fast but climate change right now is running faster so we pick up the pace but in your opinion is is climate a winning issue in the general election. And why clearly voters in the Primers WanNa hear about it. It's always one of the top three issues and any of the key states It's especially sailing for young voters but for whatever reason it hasn't caught fire And it it didn't show up last debate. So is it a winning issue in twenty twenty Yes for a variety of reasons number one. It speaks to and connects to some very deep sort of value statements. In the American people want is the importance of job Americans. I want to work. They want a job. They WANNA have economic stability and they wanNA feel productive and this is there's no greater argument for job creation than this then in this field clean energy jobs today are are growing twice as fast as the US economy Jobs in solar stew your way way past those was in the coal industry and the thing. That's beautiful about this is that is that there's something for clean energy in every part of the country it it sort of. You can't go to any state where there isn't not some dramatically increasing jobs in Iowa. The winters are sprouting length of corn in Nevada. I was just there the other day. We're MGM going one hundred percent solar. I went to the Cooper or copper mountain photovoltaic plant where the w union members did it great work building. These massive solar plants in Moses Lake Washington were building carbon-fiber that goes into electric cars Just wherever you go in Florida where I went and saw these companies installing solar panels. It is just all across the United States. So that's number one. Why it's important number two? This touches the basic character of the American people and that is that we are optimists. We are future us. We're looking forward. Not backwards were the people who invent and create bill. This is the nature of the American people and and so it touches this spirit of optimism that can do nature we're not people sitting around wring our hands we want to invent the future and it speaks to that and I think that's let's Both in the Democrat Republican breast. If you will so a third look at science based on science and and the majority of Americans vast majority now understand that we don't have an option we've got to act including about half a republicans if you pull about about half the Republican voters actually think we should do something about climate. Change is just the Republican politicians who are in the pocket of the oil and gas industry in camp. Break that lock walk that special interest. That's what's impeding the legislature national legislature from acting. But the people get it now..

But he wanted to talk about Middle East relations and war issues at defense issues. They weren't at the top of everybody's mind. So he gets on the debate stage. She gets to bring those things up seems to be what Jay Inslee doing here. Now, he's the governor of a state. That's usually a good path to the White House. It's much usually historically it much better path to the White House. Then trying to do it through the Senate or the house only recently, obviously, we saw Obama when for the Senate Trump, obviously winning from sort of celebrity status. But before that, you had Bush was governor you had Clinton was governor. Reagan was governor. It's a it's a good path to get to the White House. Typically Inslee lease the first governor to enter the race, and that's somewhat notable. But is platform. I just don't see how it works. He wants to accelerate a to train one hundred percent, glean clean energy and net zero. Emissions economy with plans, targeting electricity transportation buildings industry and agriculture now, even if you're going to run on this you've kind of had the wind taken out of your sales because the Cossio Cortez is already proposed the new green deal, and that's essentially what Inslee is is running on here. But one of the things you'll never they never looked to cover in. The media is how important climate change is to Americans. You know, they all say we're going to die within twelve years. The earth is over within twelve years. We're gonna I it's it's a it's a non stop horror show a fiery floods if we get past a decade, or so and that decade, always stands, Pat wherever you are in the timeline. It's always a decade in the future. There's still enough time to act so you can give us all of your freedom to do this. But if it's not too much time you better do it right now act now. It's it's an infomercial pitch is essentially what it is. But he wants to do this. Listen, even with that infomercial pitch. What is the priority of global warming in the United States? You're not going to be surprised to hear. It's behind the economy, health care and education. So it well it also terrorism. So you have a Konami healthcare education terrorism, and then social security and Medicare so you have those economy healthcare costs education, terrorism social security, Medicare, and then of course. The poor. And then the environment. So there you go it's not the it's not global warming. It's just the environment other than global warming there specifically broken apart into two categories. So no part of the environment would actually be global warming in this particular poll, so it's behind the environment as well and behind immigration now stop for a second. And remember that the emergency emergency declaration talks that we've had over the past few weeks have largely been based on the democratic side not because of executive power, which are my concerns of it. And whether it's constitutional or not. They've been talking about how the there's not a crisis on the border. Well, the American people quite clearly think immigration is a larger crisis. Then global warming in poll after poll after poll after poor they rated as a higher priority. So after immigration finally, you get two jobs, which is so it's it's economy healthcare costs education terrorism social security, Medicare poor and needy environment. I immigration and jobs. And finally, of course. Reducing crime and drug addiction. But then of course, then the budget deficit and then race relations and then the military. So that's it. You have economy healthcare costs education terrorism social security, Medicare poor and needy environment immigration jobs, reducing crime drug addiction budget deficit race relations and the military all ahead of climate change. Oh, and one more thing also transportation, I got my Uber's are taking too long to get here. Oh, and then also global warming. You know, I've noticed there's not a nice bike lane for me to get to work. Oh, and then also global warming. Where the Cup holders in this car and also global warming. This is how low this is for a priority for the American people. It's not even in the top three or four Democrats. So maybe this'll be effective to bring this issue to the table. But it's kind of interesting as you look at these sort of plethora of issues, we're seeing now from the Democrats are they going to be hey, connect with the American people. They're running this race like these socialists, many of them are and while that's good for honesty, and it's good for the American people and voters to know it. I don't know how it's a winning strategy for Democrats. I think they think Trump is so unpopular that they can run anybody and win. And I don't know if you've recognized this approach it's called Hillary Clinton two thousand sixteen that this was the entire theory behind Hillary Clinton two thousand sixteen. Hey, you know, what we can run anything put Hillary up there. She'll even win and she didn't. So this is a very risky strategy being thrown out there right now, we still don't have Joe Biden in the race. But we have now thirteen people in the race for the democratic nomination. Now, the Republicans last time got to seventeen so there's a little room to grow violent. We do expect to come in. There's been reports that he has offered jobs now people in New Hampshire, and I o we do expect that in the next few weeks. I still expect Beddoe to get in a little surprise. He's not all ready. So maybe that'll change. There's a few other names that have been tossed around. That's still my jump in where we could get up above the seventeen one other thing I want to point your attention to from the Jay Inslee. Campaign pitch. And I know this is probably the only time will ever talk about Jay Inslee. So let's get this out of the way. One of the things he is prioritizing is potentially the biggest risk that comes out of this election, which if you think about it this way, Derek if let's just say any one of these Democrats wins the presidency in two twenty twenty it's possible. I don't know if the odds necessarily favorite I mean, you know, if you look at the betting markets, they think there's about sixty five percent chance. Democrats are going to win in twenty twenty. Now, we've seen the way these things work out. They're not always right were way. Too far ahead of this election for any of this stuff to even be mildly. Influential in the way that you're thinking, but as of right now, they think it's certainly possible. And in any two person race one of the two can win. That's what makes this so dangerous. If a socialist runs if people are just thinking, well, I don't wanna vote for Trump. Whether it's because of the economy, or they just don't like the guy or whatever it is. You could get a real leftist coming in. If you go down this road, and you say if a democrat were to win in two thousand twenty in addition to that, there's no way they're going to win the presidency and lose the house, but that's not going to happen. They already have the house most likely they would expand their advantage in the house, which leaves you with the Senate. Now, it's a fifty three forty seven Senate the way it is right now Democrats have slight structural advantage going into twenty twenty Republicans had a big advantage in twenty eighteen so the the bounces around with their six year terms. So sometimes you're defending a lot of seats that are already read seats. Sometimes you're you're going after a lot of blue seats. This one is one of those situations where there's a lot of purplish states that have Republicans as senators that are vulnerable. So let's just say I mean, again, it would be very unlikely that the Democrats would win the presidency and not take over the Senate that gives them control of all three and you'll say, well, they still can they still have the filibuster to stop anything. They're not gonna get to six. Devotes which is true. They're not gonna get to sixty democratic votes. Here's one ends Lee's main focuses. He says one one of the top priorities of his run is to kill the Senate filibuster..
