"Don't look now. But republicans are coming around to the idea that joe biden is going to be. The nation's next president will discuss that plus president-elect transition is all systems go as he makes it official with his first major appointment and finally president obama's new memoir reveals how the former president thinks his election gave rise to president trump. We are starting to see cracks emerge in this wall of republicans support for president trump's effort to ignore the election results and dispute them without any reason for doing so his baseless claims an election contests and litigation may continue but republicans on capitol hill. If not coming out and congratulating biden for winning the election not declaring him president-elect all of them but at least coming out and saying it would make sense now for some preparations to be in place for joe biden to actually take over the presidency on january twentieth. As the american people elected him to do so. So this is what we've been seeing the last twenty. Four hours. Karl rove george w bush's top political aide. Who by the way is no stranger to election contests. Right i mean. He was at the center of bush. V gore in two thousand and the florida recount. He writes wall street journal. Op-ed acknowledging that there is not really a path to overturn the election. Results that they will not be overturned and accepting the reality of president elect. Joe biden is where we are right now. We also heard from governor. Mike dewine republican of ohio longtime member of congress before he was governor. He couldn't have said it. More plainly on new day this morning on cnn that joe biden is indeed president-elect republican senator lankford of oklahoma. He said that he's going to actually step. In as part of his oversight role if biden doesn't have access to the intelligence briefings and the presidential daily brief by the end of this week. He's not alone. We've now heard from rob portman of ohio. We've heard from lindsey graham of south carolina. You don't get a closer trump ally. Lindsey graham they to believe that president-elect should probably be looking at the intelligence that the country's intelligence community is gathering to start wrapping his head around the challenges that before the country since he is going to assume the presidency on january twentieth. Twenty twenty one. I will republican senator. Chuck grassley south dakota senator. John thune mitch. Mcconnell's number two guy in the senate susan collins lisa murkowski. All of these folks believe now and are saying so publicly. that biden should at least have access to classified briefings and prepare for what is apparent. He's transition to the presidency. So this is all going to be information that donald trump's starts to see in. The big question is going to be. Does it impact him anyway. I mean right before. I started recording. This podcast his son. Eric sent out a fundraising e mail to support her saying the fight must go on called. The election fraud called on folks to donate to the election protection fund at the trump campaign. So there's no sign yet from donald trump from his children from his campaign and his political team that they are ready to throw in the towel in any way and acknowledge reality but it is quite clear that his republican allies on capitol hill are starting to emerge to acknowledge what is apparent to everyone. And we now need to wait to see what that does to president. Trump's posture who by the way has still not spoken publicly on camera to the american people in a week. I cannot remember week of the trump presidency that we didn't hear from him on camera and yet that is what we have just experienced despite the fact that this cova crisis is getting worse by the hour. Now here's what else matters today. Joe biden named ron clean a longtime democratic operative as his white house. Chief of staff. Will you need to understand about this. Appointment ron clean has been working in. And around and four. Joe biden for more than thirty years ron clean is also a character in american politics. Who has been at the very center of some of the most memorable moments in american political history whether it was his work with joe biden during the anita hill. Clarence thomas confirmation hearings. He was a central figure. There's a staffer whether it was his role in the florida recount in bush. V gore in two thousand. He was absolutely central to the gore team. Legal strategy in two thousand here of course also served as chief of staff to vice president biden during the obama administration so being chief of staff to biden is is not a new title for for ron clean. Although being white house chief of staff is obviously a whole different ballgame than being the chief of staff to the vice president. But this is joe biden indicating two things one. He's not looking to broaden his circle of advisers that he's had over decades in washington. He's keeping the close counsel to the people that he trusts any knows and who've been working with him in part of his team he put somebody from that kind of pedigree at the top job in the white house to run his west wing. That's one key thing to understand about a president joe biden and how he's going to staff his team. The other thing is ron. Clean was the abol czar for the obama administration and we saw of him when the coronavirus pandemic started in the spring on. Tv everywhere sort of explaining his expertise from the abullah crisis and how that could be applied now or how. It wasn't being applied in his point of view. In the way that the trump administration was handling the coronavirus pandemic. But it makes ron claim. Not just a biden adviser for decades and a trusted confident of the president elect. It makes him the man for this moment as well as the new administration is going to have to make defeating corona virus. There number one two and three issues as they take office. So all of that together. Sort of lined up for ron claim to take on this most important job in joe biden's west wing and finally.

Do you believe would get one hundred percent of the vote based on their career Brady still going, but we know he's most of in the tank, well, if baseball writers were voting on this then Lawrence Taylor wouldn't because of field apparently. But then you know, they've the football writers factor in off the field, even though they shouldn't. But you know, or they save a domed, but they do because you know, you had t o who didn't get in first ballot or. Michael irvin. Didn't get in and felt like that. That was held against them. Lawrence taylor. First ballot. One hundred percent Jerry Rice on percent Peyton hundred percent. But if only one could get in. Jerry rawlings. I'd go Jerry Rice would get one hundred percent of the votes. They don't tell you what the voting is in the pro football hall of fame. Do they make Levin because we know it's not unanimous. But I think you have to have a majority gets, you know, they have those rounds where they go from fifteen to like, yeah. Yeah. I don't know if thirty nine voters if they have a total vote at the end, I think they do double check. I don't know if that's ever made public. But yeah, I'm not everybody's unanimous in that room. But I think it has to go around to do have enough votes to put in such and such it's way different than baseball. Which is have you ever done baseball have you? It's just they know in a ballot right now. It's baseball writers. Yeah. I've never done that boat. Football one is famous for having arguments and really biased, you know. Well, you get people who. It's Tom Brady of Kuti Taylor. Jason taylor. He wrote. He wrote a letter on behalf of Jason Taylor. That was read in that room. I mean that carries weight with Brady saying how much he appreciated the competition between Jason Taylor in the dolphins. I'd also heard that they negotiate their like gimme, Dan Hampton. And I'll give you this guy that kind of thing the local writers, really. That's that's a I have Peter King. Obviously runs ever is what everyone says this forty guys in there and doctors ease to be huge factor famously fought against Tagliabue's going in. I don't think tank Lubitsch, by the way, where's the Commissioner? Where's Commissioner ghetto? I mean is this a buy week for him as well? But you like what's going on in your sport? Have we had a play on the field that meant this much? And was this controversial? And you have nothing to say. Now, you okay, you might say the following. If he says, something he's going to get criticized if he doesn't say something he's going to get criticized. I just want to hear from the Commissioner. In even if you just address it to the saints and say, you don't want we're sorry. And I know that's not good enough. We try to get it. Right. We'll continue to try to get it. Right. There's human element human error involved in this. And we're sorry for that. I felt horrible. When I'm watching this in the end result, and how it's affected something that just says, you're breathing. And let people know this is your sport. You gotta come out and say something now he's going to get in front of the media to Super Bowl, you'll do his state of the union address.

So these are pet ID tags. Thank you Janine. I'll think you Lauren have a great day you too now. I'd like you to say Hello to Debbie Viney who is the account executive a B H pep gear. Debbie your dog is Jerry Lee, right? Yes. Yes. That's great. Well, listen, I have to tell you first of all I love be h pet gear you offer such a wide variety of products and some really important products as well. I let's talk about I how you got started. How did the company begin the company saw a need the background of the company was originally and children's ware, and they saw a need a crossover between some human products and some products dogs, and they knew that they could create some affordable products that were on trans what was going on in the human and the canine mortgage, and they wanted to bring some trendy items to customers at a price that everybody could afford. Yeah. And I love that because they are affordable. But they're really. Really nice. And I love the variety. And the fact that you're always changing, let's tell our listeners about some of your products. What types do you offer because I know it's a wide range. Okay. Well, we have a couple of things going on. We were best known for is our AKC com coat. I learned that love that. I love that. It's a great product. We've had fantastic results for it comes in three color. It's a great anti-anxiety wrath on a side note, I rescue as well. And I've seen it in action with some of our rescue dogs to really bring down their stress level. So it's a really fun product. I have to say, I don't mean to interrupt. But when I hosted a pet show pep talk on news, twelve for a long time there, we did we had a common coat version on and at first I was skeptical because I thought that what his Israeli work, but you know, something it really works. So I applaud you for that. Because it really helps. I don't know the animal feel more comfortable, I think is. And obviously, that's what you're finding. Right. You are they feel swaddled almost like being hugged. And that's where it takes down there inside he loved so for listeners whose think calming coat, what's that you really need to try especially dogs that have trouble with thunder and things like that. And fireworks. So that's your does that come in different sizes than Debbie. You are account. It goes ranging from extra small to extra large and comes in three colors, and he started out with with gray. And then do the customer demands and leading to a pen of blue. And then actually we expanded on that people were asking for a cat version finale, the com- cat too. Yeah. So for cats as well terrific. Suffer from anxiety as well. And and really it's just so much better than giving medication. If that can work for your animals, certainly so your products dogs and cats. Yes, yes. And it's great for travel to I actually take my dawn, Jerry Lee on the subway every day, and he wears his auto boy. Well, then he needs it. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. And then we'll also known we do a lot of footwear under the AKC brands, and you have a line of boots called, plus tack revenue version me have some would like a sock. Nice and tight to the leg. Do we have a couple of performance based boots? And then we also have a fun line called Jerry Rawlings goes on very cute. Do make them an extra large for my Inoki. Or are the sizes? Are they tend to go more? We do large size, and I'm able to get a large on my bulldog. So that might work for you. So the the very functional as well as cute because I know many pops have issues with their applause being outside and such. Yeah. Absolutely. A lot of people. Always the first thing you think is the win the harsh winters and the fall in the plaza. But they're actually really didn't even going into the summer for the hot pavement. Okay. Yeah. I can get very warm. Definitely, you know, you don't realize how that concrete can really heat up, and that can really burn your pets. Pause. So that's a very good point. Yeah. Definite rain, even hiking. You know, as it gets nicer people want to be outdoors, and sometimes you get the birds. They kind of go between the pets paw pads and things that integrate to give an extra level of protection there too. Absolutely sizes vary as you said, and I I like that you're items are easy to wear. Yes. Yeah. We made it very easy to put on and off the pets. Very quickly. Nothing too elaborate, not a lot of straps or things like that things that are very easy to get on and off your pet unless. Dress for them in you. That's important. Yes. We also do a licensed as well. I love this summer. Yeah. A lot of stories on you know, like water safety for pets. And that is really important to have that available. So you have a full line of that as well. Yeah. Yeah. We it comes in two colors is just the ball and has a nice handle at the top. And it's also designed so the pet won't rollover and water. So they're getting stress they'll stay up rate. And I'm sure as you know, there's some breeds people don't realize that are not natural formers. It's great to have that protection as well. So I'm so glad you have that. Because that's safety. If your dog goes over in a boat. They are really heavy. So you wanna be able to pull them up if God forbid that happens? But yeah. So that's terrific. You also have a biscuits vegan biscuits, and that's important. A lot of animals have digestive issues. Now are killers organic line. It's fantastic is very simple. I think there's probably about. Five ingredients taps in each product. They're all human greed ingredients, the USDA certified organic, and we also got certification with the non GMO project means that they're not only certifies non GMO, but it's an extra level of care. But we went into make sure we sit their practices, and I think there's only twenty six companies out there that has that. So we're very proud of that too. And you should be because that's very important. You really have to check out where treats come from. So this would be a wonderful option. And yeah, right. Yeah. You have different flavors as well. Yeah. We have blueberry. I'm berry coconut peanut butter, which is a perennial favorite. Yeah. Yeah. Banana oatmeal on a piece of fusion. So we have hunts levers that's often Vermont. Yes. So they're made in the USA. That's even better not exactly right in Vermont, the human greed I can attest that I've tasted them myself. Try one JV. Yeah. And again, I love that your products really run run the gamut, and they are affordable products..
