"In Seattle at the 35 as President Jill Biden made clear in his inaugural address dealing with cold. It is first on the agenda. Almost Jeff Coachella spoke with Democratic strategist Kathy Allen and Republican strategist Randy Peple about what the president has outlined. I gotta gave me a sense of All that he's able to actually take care of with a new group of people that really do have a look like us. Act like us live like us kind of team to it. There was a sense of not One guy in charge of everything, but a sense of this was going to be inclusive and Randy. It's gonna be quite some time before we can say our long national nightmare is over. And the pandemic isn't going away anytime soon. And, as you said, that's job one and I think President Biden realized is that I think the people around him realize that and that until They can make good on his promise of 100 million shots in 100 days he won't be judged is the success. I mean, if they fall short in that very basic promise that does not portend well for the remainder of his term. And so that's why that's where the focus needs to be. But in addition to the vaccines It's restoring the economy. It is getting kids back into schools. I mean, there are other elements that the president needs to be allowed voice. In favor of and that's what we need to be hearing. I think coming out of the White House if he indeed is going to be successful and bringing people together who did not vote for him or even those who voted for him, But mainly they voted against Donald Trump. And to bring those folks together. Success in covert, I think is Thea answer. Cathy. You know, it seems like that Joe Biden will have leased the opportunity for success. More than a lot of presidents, previous presidents he has, albeit a very slim majority in both chambers of the Congress. I think it's more than the number of people in Congress. I think that what it is right now it's a sense of a breath of fresh air. And actually a least a sense of positive action, as opposed to things. You don't believe his whole going back and forth to just the truth. The truth, I'll tell you the truth will we will be in contact with you. I think that a lot of that Really resonates right now, when people don't have the trust we once had in any any former government at the local of local state, and particularly the federal level. I think this is about a trust building time with somebody who's gonna look you in the eye and tell you the truth. At the same time, he's gonna have a different group of people who are much more. I would say, middle class and like more of us. Then that we've seen before. I'm gonna do think it's a stark lightness and a dark world. And I think that that was the first thing you take from. This was a sense of at least there's an optimism and a hope. Now that I didn't have yesterday. Brandy. What do you say The next steps are, you know in healing the country, whether it's cove it or anything else that's gonna be A huge challenge. Well, the next steps are a little bit of kind of inside baseball, if you will, and the first one is how they settled the issue of the filibuster in the U. S Senate, as you know, and as your listeners know It takes 60 votes to do most things in the Senate due to the ability of the filibuster of a minority of the members to stop legislative action. And seemingly, Senator McConnell has put to his counterpart, Senator Schumer and offered it leave the legislative filter in place for two years, and then we can proceed with organizing the Senate. And Senator Schumer is not accepting that yet. That's Democratic strategist Kathy Allen and Republican strategist Randy Peple. Talking with co Most Jeff Coachella, and for more of the conversation you can subscribe to the coma politic cast its that cuomo news dot com slash podcasts or with your favorite podcast.

"Seattle. You're in the middle of 20 minutes of nonstop news on comb. Oh, it's 605. Tomorrow, Congress convenes to certify the Electoral college victory of Joe Biden and Kamila Harris. Local political experts talk to comas Charlie Harder about what might happen. There's been a lot of talk of Republican lawmakers objecting to the vote and attempting to overturn the results. But local Republican strategist Randy Peple doesn't think so. Well, I think, Charlie, this is a media creation. Absolutely Nothing is gonna happen Wednesday. Other than a lot of hot talk. That's all. Democratic strategist Kathy Allen says she learned really agrees. But there is a small chance the Republican Senate majority leader makes a move based on how the Georgia Senate elections turnout. If the Democrats were to win there. What happens is that Mitch McConnell says the only hope we have is to go ahead and make this as long as possible. Despite the lack of evidence and losing dozens of court challenges, President Trump says he won the election, and he supports the move to object. Who the electoral College vote Charlie Harder.

Work for political consequences. If they do that, don't sour says any Washington Republican who supports the overturn effort will likely damage any potential plans for a statewide office run. New houses already reversed course and now says that he will not support the president's push. McMorris Rodgers says she will support the objections. Once President elect Joe Biden takes office. The University of Washington will be represented in the White House. A former U.

"Eight people in election night protests in Seattle, but overall, the protests were peaceful combos. Matt Markovich tells us about the police tactics used on the marches that appear to have had nothing to do with the election. Seattle police took more of that aggressive. Proactive approach they've been talking about to remove the marchers and their car brigade that was blocking Mercer Street in South Lake Union with the two groups were not moving fast enough. This is a kind of warning that we heard from the lieutenant in charge of firearm food. food. If If you you don't don't you you do do not not materials. materials. However However property destruction or less. In addition, arrest remain. Offenses included property damage, malicious mischief, resisting arrest, obstruction, reckless driving. The crowd began to disperse is about 50 officers kept pushing about at that 500.50 protesters up toward Capitol Hill near Cal Anderson part the evening. Marchers say everything was peaceful until SPD band there push in that very fast fashion. We were told by some of the marchers at no chemical agents. We're being used by SPD on the crowd.

"Episode of the Coma politic cast recorded Monday. Almost Charlie Harder goes in depth with political strategist Kathy Allen and Randy Peple. In this excerpt, Charlie asked them about their concerns for the coming days. Shops are boarded up in Seattle and across the country. We saw those trucks with the trump flags on them surround the Biden bus over the weekend, and then on the far left, you have streets burning with riots and violence happening. I gotta ask you what's your level of concern for the threat of violence in the days following the election? It all depends, I suppose on to turn out, but I suspect I think we're gonna have a lot of celebration and not necessarily the kind that break windows and scream and yell at each other. I tend to think it will be much more of a festive and positive time. With everyone's expectations. Likely to wonder what comes next. Ready. Charlie. I share your concern. I think that there is a real danger of violence because we've already seen violence in the streets all summer long in some of our major cities in the United States, and now you're going to have a situation where there's a good chance that the vote totals tomorrow night. Are going to favor Donald Trump. His supporters are more likely to be voting at the Poles. Those votes they're going to be counted on Election day, and so it is very likely that he'll be ahead on Tuesday night and then we will see the lead start to slip away. As other state start counting their mail and votes, And the problem is each day that goes by each hour. That goes by where more votes are coming away, and his lead is getting smaller that his people are going to be believing that It's being stolen, and that's what can lead to violence. And, frankly, on the left. There are some that they're going to embrace it. Just like on the far right. There are groups out there that want to embrace the violence. They want chaos. They are anarchists. And that is the danger that we're gonna have, and next weekend if we don't have a very clear decision in the presidential race. That's gonna be a day weekend that I'm staying indoors. We're speaking with political strategists, Randy Peple and Kathy Allen cabbie. Well, I could also say that that which gives me great hope that that's not gonna happen Is that the number of votes that have indeed come in now? Give me that sense of a really security blanket and well, by the way and taking a look today at all of the estimates as to how many of those votes that have come in You know, over a dozen states right now are saying they will have far more counter the name ever can act on election night. But the problem with that, Kathy is that in Pennsylvania, they're not even allowed to look. You said that thing. But the fact is, is that that's one state and that is the state. I feel most likely is going to have those log log route of divided and they will have disappeared. People voting on Election Day as they have indeed been voting early. I appreciate that, Kathy, but I tend to look at where the candidates are spending their time to decide where they think they need the most help. And the entire Biden campaign is in Pennsylvania tomorrow on today, I mean the he's there. Carla Harris is there. His wife is there her husband is there. I mean, they're putting all their eggs in that basket. If they were secure about Pennsylvania, they would be somewhere else. And that's why I'm concerned because under Pennsylvania law, they're not allowed to even start checking the signatures. On the mail in ballots until 7 a.m. tomorrow, and many of the county clerks have said Hey at 7 A.m. tomorrow will get ready for election Day. We aren't even gonna look at our mail in ballots until Wednesday and Pennsylvania is the tipping point state. If Florida goes for Trump, Pennsylvania or North Carolina is going to be the one that will determine whether or not he holds on And so that's what I'm very concerned about. I'm actually not as concerned about Pennsylvania. I think he's putting a homecoming together that actually will indeed increased the number of people that will vote for him.

"Como's Jeff Pooja list spoke with Republican strategist Randy Peple and Democratic strategist Kathy Allen Brandy. Let's begin with you and start with a very generic question. What did you think of the president's speech Thursday night? It was to be expected that Donald Trump would spend most of his speech talking about Joe Biden. In a negative fashion and claiming positives about himself. But he was far more negative on vice President Biden, then one would expect in a Acceptance speech where you were being nominated by your party and it's your opportunity. Lay out your vision for how you would govern the next four years and and, Ah, Donald Trump decided that the best way to make that argument Wass to diminishes rival as much as possible. Which is a rerun of what he did in 2016. Well, it seemed to work in 2016 You think it'll work this time around? I think that he had the advantage in 2016 against of running against a nominee who was more negatively view than Joe Biden and also he did not have a record to run on in 2060 Rat is an outsider. Now he has a record. And the question is, are there people who voted for Donald Trump in 2016? Because they wanted an outsider going to be dissatisfied with that record, and specifically, are there people in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin. Arizona, North Carolina. Are there people in those states that voted for the president last time that will vote against him this time? I think the answer to that is yes. Are there any people who voted for Hillary Clinton last time? We're going to go for Donald Trump? This time? I have not met that person. S o. I think thats unlikely. So the president's numbers are likely to go down. But we have an electoral college, not a national vote on DH. So will they stay high enough? In those keys, swing states. I just talked about for him to eke out another victory in the Electoral college even while he loses the national popular vote, as polls indicate he is going to do so by a wider margin that he did in 2016, Kathy contrast. All that with Joe Biden speech last week. Well, I have to tell you this is the perfect example of I wasn't expecting Anything great I was expecting. Joe just adds. Joe was always Joe. He's talking and it's not really rhetoric. It's not really you know greatness, but it was one of the best speeches I've heard in a long time. And it was uncharacteristically. I think fresh. It was very different than what I've ever heard him speak before. And I thought it was terrific that loved it. I thought that it was, in many cases, a good show of strength of character and voice. His authoritative Presence. There was pretty darn good. And the same was true with Camilla. I have to say she was the excitement there. Sort of like, you know you appoint her and then you better be careful what you wish for. Because this woman is a sparkle. She does get up and she does know how to speak. From that I was I was happy I really was. And I think if there was one word I would say hope there was hope there hope for me as somebody who's broken heart and crying in front of everybody that this didn't happen in 2016. So I was happy. I also loved Ah, lot of the virtual. They brought America tow us and that gave me a good feeling too. I really thought it would be hoping to have people from every state trying to sell me something, but no, Actually, it was very entertaining.

Researcher says EPA power plant rule does little to address global warming

"I'm doctor. Anthony lies words and this is climate connections last year the EPA repealed the clean power plan an Obama era policy aimed at reducing carbon pollution from power plants. The agency replaced it with the affordable. Clean Energy or ace rule. The new rule does not place limits on power plant pollution. Instead direct states to prioritize energy efficiency improvements that power plants. The ideas that more efficient plants will burn less an unfortunate kind of unintended consequence of that approach. Is that those power plants then become more cost effective to operate and tend to run more. Kathy Allen. Lambert is with the Harvard Center for Health. Climate and global environment her team analyzed. Epa Data about the expected impact of the ace rule because some plants will likely run more an old power plants may be kept online longer. Over a fifth of Power. Plants were estimated to have an increase in co two emissions overall. The new rule is projected to drive down emissions. Less than one percent beyond. What would likely happen without any policy at all? The bottom line when it comes to the ace rule is that it does virtually nothing to confront climate

The politics of 'victimhood'

"Politics of victimhood twenty nineteen saw a lot of victimhood in politics the biggest example no doubt is president trump who has argued that he is the victim of a democratic witch hunt in a Democratic Party that has been out to get him since day one but during the impeachment process Democrats have argued that the country has become a victim of all corrupt president joining me now are democratic strategist Kathy Allen and Republican strategist rainy couple ready let me start with you do you think the democratic argument on impeachment is working I think I could take it a lot more seriously if I didn't have a set of demands on my desk that says impeachments which had been prepared by the Democrats before Donald Trump took office now you you know in your listeners now that I am not a fan of the president I think that his actions are deplorable in a lot of areas but what's even more deplorable if the impeachment process that has been undertaken by the Democrats totally partisan and totally devoid of herbs back in none of the stuff that they were talking about over the last two years when there was the mall a report when there was bribery or what have you none of that is part of what they actually are trying to impeach him on and it's indeed a sad day for America but that's what came out of the house of representatives well actually I sort of agree that but that's not none of these other things it ready talked about were part of what they should teach that was what this impeachment was is anybody above the law including our president and more important if you know something's right and you're asked to do something wrong do you have the guts to stand up for I think that's the moral dilemma is zero are you gonna take the impeachment books looks like it was some sort of a pre ordained span of consciousness for Democrats forty take a look at someone who actually was bright big and it paid cash for international about just doing something that was fundamentally wrong politically on ethical and more importantly it's just a matter of hours we play this out to continue to fight the American public down four out of sheer boredom and insider stuff well in the Republican criticism of this and rainy you touched on this has been that the Democrats have been wanting to impeach the president since January twentieth twenty seventeen certainly some of them have but there wasn't really any serious discussion of it within the in the higher ranks at least that not that we're aware of until this issue of of real crane hit is that fair is that a fair criticism of the Democrats it's a completely fair criticism and again not because of the president's lack of the of of stability his lack of good conduct but the Democrats been trying to do this all along and and the fact that it took this phone call in July the day after Robert Muller himself testified on Capitol Hill that they finally found the hook that they could hang impeachment on doesn't matter they've been trying to do this all along the match what's sad about this process use it to borrow why is that yeah it is what do you pay that for a long time is turning around decided that you know they finally found you with the you know with the back room key to the bank if you're happy rack room key this is this is something that Democrats have been looking for the entire time there's no background key here is Donald Trump somebody they don't like absolutely does he behave in a manner that I would want to present the haven absolutely he does not but for the house of representatives to vote on a straight party line vote for impeachment it's sad for the house of representatives but as a political strategy how does playing the victim work does it help or hurt as we head into the twenty twenty campaign I'm sure the president will again play that card now that he has been impeached largely along party lines you know what really hurts you guys women when a woman that actually plays the victim card she's out she is out you're not going to see the warrens of the world do that even if a woman has had breast cancer if a woman has had a major operation should keep that quiet because if there is a perception of weakness on her part anything to do with victim band you don't want a victim standing there to send the game working out there and lead the charge because Hillary Clinton played the victim card over and over sixteen campaign hi Holly how you play the if you play the victim card most people have gone through times in their lives when they've been the victim they've been the person who's victimized I guess and they they just don't see it as a reason for why you should vote for someone because they've been the victim for date you should support them through their victim hood and too often it's played in Washington DC is you know become hoarders you know it's like patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel that's what the victims do is when you got your back against the wall you got nothing else to do you say I'm the victim here what trump throwing and it's got

"This month today. Governor, Jay Inslee was randomly selected to appear on the first night, and not on the second night, which will include Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Come Charlie Harker spoke to Republic. Strategist, Randy Pepple and democratic strategist Kathy Allen. I think it was a lucky break for governor Jay, I think that having Elizabeth Warren on who has yet to be very vocal about anything to do with the environment is probably good for her to, and what do you think Randy? I think that James Lee lucked out on this job because what he really has the opportunity to do is go after beta Aurora for stealing his ideas on climate that will give him a confrontation moment that the moderators audience may respond well to, and he doesn't really have to compete with the top tier folks on this issue, or really beyond Warren, any of the top tier folks. Mean booker's Cory booker's star has been fading since he got into the race award stars been fading in the last month. And so. Inslee got gotta break on this. But Warren, did not because she's going to be expected to dominate the debate and given a debate format like this, that's almost impossible Kathy Randy touched on this, and maybe you can expand coming from the democratic side. Let's talk about strategy here. You've got a really Pierce through if you're one of these lower ranked, candidates, and we are talking about a confrontation moment. What would you recommend if you had a client there? What would you recommend? They do command that they go after Biden. I think that's the only game in town. Right now. I also think that even though the second night has a lot of interesting ideas on the table, it's gonna be too confusing with ten in most of the debate forms. Remember, even in terms of that we saw two thousand sixty oh my goodness. The problem is, is that when you have so many people with so many different ideas. The problem becomes one where you sit back and wonder wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. What do I remember about anyone, I think Biden, and I think that, frankly, it all of this. Kamala has a shot at it. I think that a lot of the others are going to sit there and literally have one minute of fame, and I don't think it's going to be the most memorable and Randy, your Republicans. I'm having you reach here, but you've managed to candidate who went up against Jay Inslee ended debate. What, what is something that Inslee does that strong in that type of format? What would you advise somebody opposing him to be where of I think that opposing Jay Inslee in a debate is trying to nail jello to a wall. He will not answer questions directly. So if you are opposing him and you wanna have that confrontation, I think you just keep pushing him on of questions. And once you get him out of talking specifically about climate.

This is as we're hearing that special counsel Robert Muller may wrap up his investigation as soon as. Next week. Komo's Jeff Pohjola spoke about it with democratic strategist, Kathy Allen and Republican strategist Randy Pepple. It seems to me that Mr. Mueller is not following anybody else's timeline his own and he is conducting the investigation as the professional that. I think most people realize that he is. And he's going to provide a roadmap for the investigations to continue. I would suspect and the Democrats will take up his report in the house of representatives and following the leads he's uncovered and keep pursuing him. So while his part of the investigation may be coming to an end in the next week or so you can rest assured that the investigation still has a couple more years. I don't know. I look at this. And I'd say, well, the best news about this is that maybe we won't have to read about all of the things he's supposed to do anytime soon. The fact is is that we've been sort of overloaded with whole the whole up Mueller action. And even though I tend to think I do appreciate the fact that. He is handling things by the book straight up being very honest about what's going on. I just think that it's not among the top atrocities. I see in this president. And no matter how the American people look at it. It's still not going to be what I think is the big issue. They take to the polls and that brings us to Roger stone who was indicted by the special counsel for lying to congress. He had a gag order slapped on them, and then got smacked even harder by the federal judge after he posted on Instagram what could be perceived as a threat. Well, he, and I have much in common when it comes to the ability to get constant press based upon stupid things that we all think we're stupid. And I think in his case he just wants and loves and craves the kind of attention. He used to get when he was a bigger shot. I think it's unfortunate that the judge did revoke bail. In jail right now. I mean, the fact is that he broke the gag order that she'd imposed on him. And it was a colossally stupid thing to do as he himself admitted. And when you see that type of violation it should be punished right away. Not just re re-instituting. Essences what the judge did? She showed great restraint.

We lend to rest follows on the heels of Russian agent Maria is guilty plea in the US to charges of trying to infiltrate conservative political circles mitt Romney's out with a scathing op Ed in the Washington.

This comes just as Republicans in South Carolina and the US Virgin Islands are flirting with the idea of cancelling their presidential primaries in twenty twenty as never to protect the president from a challenge from within his own party close. Jeff Pohjola spoke with Republican strategist Randy Pepple and democratic strategist Kathy Allen is pretty typical of political parties that when they have an incumbent president. They tried to avoid having any kind of primary challenger to that and company because they know that that drains away resources from the general election the effort, and so I think this is pretty typical and really a non story. But do you actually think this is going to go forward? Because would you not be then depriving the voters right to have a say? I think that the fact that it came out of the from the US virgin Erkin islands trying to ingratiate himself with President Trump. But no other state is saying, yes, we should change the rules of delegate selection to prohibit the primary challenge. I think it's pretty pretty much a non event now the Romney op, Ed. It is significant in that it shows that Mitt Romney will be a Senator starting tomorrow is going to take on the mantle in the US Senate at least of being the chief of the Republican resistance to Donald Trump. I think at least he's going to try. I also think it was a bigger statement that Mitt Romney came out just on this day to actually kinda like launch what could be a presidential effort, very similar to what we saw in regards to Elizabeth Warren and doing this the day before we all go back into the into Senate, and congress the fact is it belies more than just the obvious announcement in both cases, it's predicated on their personal political ambition. I think and also I believe that what it does. Is it kind of lets everyone else. No. If you're actually step up and run, then no you're going to be running against me and take out your checkbook. Do you think Mitt Romney runs for president in twenty twenty? I think that it it looks to me like if it falls in a way that people gravitate around him. Yes. Which is why I think you see all of the Trump forces at and now aligning themselves early with the Republican party. We are one kind of going forward. I do think that that's kind of a an effort to preempt anyone particularly Mitt Romney from getting in that race. Yeah. I I think that what Mitt Romney is doing is preparing for a post world and leadership in the Republican party in that post Trump world now before the twenty twenty election, or after it, I don't think anybody knows. But given that Donald Trump is nothing if not unpredictable. It's no guarantee that he will seek a second term the special counsel report and action by congress on impeachment. Could have a say in that. But he could also decide that it is not worth his time to get into an election that he would lose and nothing could be worse for Donald Trump and losing.

"Three degrees. Komo news time three oh, six as results from Tuesday's midterms continue to trickle and Republicans and Democrats are trying to make sense of the numbers come loose. Jeff Pohjola spoke with Randy Pepple and Kathy Allen political strategists from both sides of the aisle. What is the message that the American people are sending well, it's a conflicted message. I think what you saw on election night in what you're continuing to see in the balance that are being counted is that the thing that Donald Trump cared. Most about was protecting the Senate majority one to protect against impeachment from a house majority controlled by Democrats and to continue the personnel moves of appointing judges, which depend upon the Senate, and he succeeded in that I mean right now, the Republicans are are at plus. To in the Senate now that could end up just being plus one if Florida which is going to go to recount and has already in the courts if that turns around and and Senator Nelson holds onto his seat there. And in Arizona, where there's still a half a million votes to be counted. And it's within ten thousand votes there for Republican seats. So. Either way Trump holds his Senate majority. But in going so hard on immigration the last couple of weeks and ignoring the economy, he gave up any chance of a house majority. And right now, even though there are still thirteen races to be called across the country, including foreign California. The Democrats have won a majority. There are two twenty three right now best case scenario for Republicans would be holding them to to twenty eight but they could go over to thirty. So it's a conflicted message, frankly, Kathy. What's happened is that usually when the last votes came in in most elections, you would find that they were conservative votes are less that that was the actual. I would say the tradition up until about four years ago. But now what we've seen in both the local races as well as the national races. Is that Democrats have continued to chip away in terms of those? Ideally, what we think is that we're going to pick up both Arizona as well. As what you see? Right now in Florida, just taking a look at the preponderance of those last voters, which we did research on here. The people who actually voted in the last two days are people who are very decidedly younger they are often women there for more urban areas. And frankly, just like you saw here we've been continuing to pick up votes and pick up state seats after that the other thing I saw is that know despite what happened in terms of these two countries of ours that split right down the middle. Now one led by the house. The other led by the Senate. The fact is Trump still has to be the guy that comes out to come up with the headline to not distract people from what the actual election. What's he didn't give him twenty four hours, and he was firing sessions. He's doing the birthright stop he's doing all these things to sort of take the emphasis off of this election. That's democratic strategist Kathy Allen and Republican strategist Randy Pepple. Speaking.
