"Part of your Thanksgiving weekend with us in this crazy and tumultuous political year, the political turkeys have emerged. Josh Cross, Our politics editor at National Journal puts together his annual list this year, he says it doesn't just rank not ready for prime time candidates but also the institutions and strategies that did not Live up to expectations. Josh, who's on it? This is my annual list of the worst political performers in 2020. And, yeah, I mean, I have a list of seven either individuals or strategies and tactics said that failed in 2020, But top of the list were two Senate candidates, one appointed Senator Martha McSally. It was one of the few Republican senators that ran behind Donald Trump in a state that was very, very competitive on ultimately lost two Senate races in about three years that the hard feet to do, especially in a Republican leaning state, like Arizona and the other was a Democrat. Kentucky Senate candidate Amy McGrath, who spent almost $88 million of campaign cash on Lee. They lose by almost 16 points to Mitch McConnell and one of the biggest blow out some of the big Senate races. But I mean not to get too deep into the weeds here. But what were the issues for both of those Senate candidates? What money? Well, I think the theme in these underperforming political performers is that money doesn't mean more than message, and Amy McGrath had a lot of money because he was running against Mitch McConnell. But it didnt substitute for having an effective, compelling message. She was a pretty poor candidate and didn't have Ah, overarching argument other than Voting out the Senate majority leader in the case of MC Sally, She didn't know where she wanted to stand within the Republican Party. She needed that kind of appeal to a more moderate suburban voting base in Arizona. And you know what, which, which ended up getting the state toe Joe Biden. She ended up being so close to the base really needs a lot of this moderate voters. Another turkey on your list. The billionaire former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg. Why him, Boy? I mean, he could. He could be number 100 list. He spent about a billion dollars of his own money in the presidential race on Lee, the wind delegates only the Wind bird, the Virgin Islands coming in first place there 55 59 delegates total. Is abysmal performance. But it wasn't just that Gordon. He also spent about over $100 million in three big battleground states for Joe Biden, Ohio, Texas and also the state of Florida, which he was the most invested in those were states that Trump won easily. It's about anything in Florida, Trump actually did better in 2020 than he did in 2016, so to continue the theme money really doesn't matter. When it comes to politics. What happened there was a little controversy with not wanting to pay health insurance for some of his staff. Ultimately laid off. Oh, yeah, I mean, the Bloomberg said. You know what You know he would help help Democrats that ballot and he would create this big, big machine when or lose with his with his personal money. You know, he did, in the very end, spend some money for for Joe Biden. But he laid his whole staff off after losing them Super Tuesday, and it took a long time for him to be pressured to the pain, his staff healthcare in the middle or at the beginning of the pandemic. So this is someone who was rich enough to spend a billion of his own money for losing presidential campaign but didn't want to fork over the health benefits to his campaign staff were speaking with Josh Crowds are politics editor at National Journal. This piece is called the biggest political turkeys of 2020. This is an annual list that he puts together number five on your list, too. You wrote about the Progressive House challengers. Yeah. I mean, there was work to pick up a straight to get straight party voting than ever before in this election, But there were some races were Democratic candidates ran well behind Joe Biden. And these were the cases were Democrats nominated. You know Bernie Sanders supporting progressive challengers and big big races you gotta carry. Eastman was a big candidate that got a lot of money and attention in Nebraska. She lost badly in a district that Joe Biden won in suburban Oh Maha, Dina Baltar and upstate New York When Remember Wendy Davis, she ran for governor of Texas with a sort of a liberal poster child for how Texas could start to become blue. Well, she ran against a very right wing Republican congressman, and she got blown out in that in that battleground race there. Five races that there were big, big targeted races for progressive candidates. The progressives went over five and ran behind Joe Biden. All five of those races well finish up with number six on your list of the Republican recruiting holes in Trump District's Yeah, I mean, Republicans were just stunned as anyone that the polling was a little bit off and that the house ended up you know, Republicans ended up getting at least 10 seats in the house with with a few seats still up in the air. That was, you know, against all the expectations, including their own. What happened is that there were some races based on the results where Republicans barely spent any money and Democratic members of Congressman Democrat member Democratic members of Congress barely won their elections and with a little bit of money with a little bit of attention, they probably could have won a handful more seats, maybe even taken back the majority, but because the polling was so off because the money wasn't there. Republicans ended up just coming a little bit short. Thanks, Josh. Just cross Harp, politics editor at National Journal Coming up next more Americans dabble in silent retreats..

S. right how much are they willing to move in terms of overshooting in either direction how much they care about asset prices these are fundamental questions that haven't been answered so they're trying to make like a cyclical move within a secular confusion as to what they're really trying to accomplish over the long run thank goodness in a mid cycle adjustment what is a mid cycle adjustment made to you with the team at alliance burns thing right now well I had I we get you to think you know it when you look back at the school if all the noise in the market place you look back years from now and of those twenty five basis point either caught or hike really mean much in the real economy it's kind of around the area so it's more psychology than anything and you know it's it's we could see the think if they were going to call it it's going to end up being seventy five a hundred basis points something meaningful obviously not all at once but you know this this twenty five basis points were not for we're going to go I think it what's interesting is that everyone talk about now you know what's the data going to be starting of course with with payrolls tomorrow it's not just the data I think they're looking at it's also the flow of information and and the political scene what's going to happen on trade in the next couple of months what's gonna happen more globally globally political gonna happen the M. countries to go to insulation is one of the great doctrines it we've got the idea of goods disinflation maybe all right goods deflation and we've got service sectors the ability of a higher inflation are you in any kind of a camp that service sector inflation begins to diminish and come down towards the lower goods inflation well I think we're in we've been in a kind of secular change for for how the economy works for a long time that room because inflation and one could argue has been coming down for a very long time pending how you measure it and it's going into into service inflation I think inflation is a very hard thing to measure certainly the by the measures the fed is using it's not high enough and that could be a possible reason why they're trying to do this but again you know it if we don't expect to see major this of this this card is not going to change you know main street economy such that we're gonna see a big change in inflation why they do it is I'm struggling you know I think the best the best reason you can look at is if you look at kind of where the tips market has has really that were break even have gone there gone way down and check it yesterday but no one for the ritual of one point five on the ten year to pick back up to one point six one point seven break even rate and you know that's just that's below what they think the normal level is at a time when the economy is strong so if you think about it that way real rates were let's call it sixty seventy basis points and given how worried they are maybe they thought that was too high that's the best that desperation I can have the other the more cynical explanation as they're responding to the political winds and so you know they don't want to be seen as it I think the the I want to say that the fed ex central banks in general worldwide I think they have a lot more control over cycles but we actually do suggestion what does that mean for the yield curve right now because yesterday we saw some significant planning on Tuesday tens little bit of state Miceli this morning just how you guys position Goshen with that in mind at the moment yeah I think if you look at the you look at the totality of what happened yesterday equities lower the Kerr flatter as you site and the dollar much stronger that's exactly the opposite of what you want to cut rates actually tightening financial conditions so yeah what does it mean I I I I think it's a very hard to predict this in the short term I think investors continued the theme we've been talking about for awhile have to continue to expect lower returns across most asset classes going forward and the other I don't think this in itself changes much within the key is going to be not so much with a cut in September which I think clearly from the press coverage yesterday you have to conclude it's a coin flip because I'm not sure they know what they're going to do but or is this just a mid cycle kind of whatever that means of twenty five basis points or they're going to continue to cut we're gonna go closer to the old town of one to one and a half percent level wondering down Kirsten to a new terminal value a new terminal value for GDP for interest rates maybe the glide path of what the fed does where they have to bring it under two percent inflation target I mean is that really what all this job openings about well okay it's hard to say right consensus has been that rates are too low for a long time and it seems see begin now are saying yeah we're going to be in this apartment able to use one of our competitors for either the new normal wear just you gonna have loads ever heard that phrase me either I don't know that it I don't know how smart those people were but good morning but look at I think you know the we we're we're always so confident in in where we think markets are going to go now we think things in the low forever we really just don't know in the long term and you know it the it was it was less than a year ago less than a year ago we're sitting here how many times the figure the height the ten years on a four percent and now where the other way we should be a little bit humble yet activists the hunch your TV show just the other week it is the only industry where people can be wrong again and again and again and people still want to hear what they have to I remember some big name saying that once we cross three to sixty to sixty five on the ten year treasury that was it for the secular bull market guessing just a final question for you I hear on the grapevine the U. like loans at the moment can you just give me some clarity on that well hi I think that you know people investors bought loans for all the wrong reasons well they thought the yields are going to go up and we are we to bond how long do honestly outperform other forms of credit when when when rates go up and now that rates of man and no one expects rates to go up to a one to one point I mean floating rate debt anymore and that's also wrong in fact there's been some like thirty five straight weeks without flows from that the class that actually has on the way underperformed other parts of credit and there's some more value opportunities there so you know we're yeah we have more loan exposure in our broad funds and we've had in probably a decade this is an excellent person to say so thank you with this you can see him on the real yield it's important property of Bloomberg very soon afternoon maybe even called the real dollar maybe we need a foreign exchange

"Concealed carry law in Kentucky Senate Bill one fifty pass with bipartisan support and opposition in both the house and Senate arriving on the governor's desk. The law will allow people in Kentucky to carry concealed gun without getting a permit or completing a background check and safety training. To talk about this. Emily Taylor joins us. On the acute hearing centers dot com hotline. Good morning, Emily. How are you? I'm fine. Thanks. How are you? So people and I'm fine. Thank you. People who are pro guns and believe wholeheartedly in the second amendment and the Bill of rights have our constitution. The United States of America note that what it says. Essentially is the right to bear arms. Shell not be infringed. Do you think that having a permit to conceal carry is an infringement upon second amendment rights? Well, you know gun people are of two minds about this. And really the end of the day. What we think it's inconsequential. Because supreme court has said that having a concealed carry permit is not an infringement on second amendment right fan. Whether we agree or disagree with that sentiment. It is governing law right now. No. We have sort of even people who are very pro second amendment who are a little bit split on this topic and expansion of gun rights is always a good thing. But of course, we want to be sure that people are carrying firearms or carrying responsibly. And that's a little bit hard to control without permits. Part of what was Kentucky law before it required. A mandatory sixty dollar fee twenty dollars going to the local sheriff and forty dollars to the state. So essentially, there was a financial component to this that related to money money money. You wanna know where laws are made you follow the money. So I guess the state is saying we're gonna we're going to let go of this money grab in order for people to enjoy their second amendment rights. That's part of it. Isn't it? And that's interesting we've seen that actually around the country recently in Kentucky part of a growing trend states that are declining to require licenses and started expanding secondment. Right. But it is interesting that heart of that is essentially universally throughout the country is stay up in order to make that happen. I wonder what the trade off is. And quite frankly, I'm not sure. But like, you mentioned there is, you know, you don't see the government just giving up money very often. And I I applaud that anytime the government's gonna let me keep more of my money. I'm always in favor of that Emily under the newly signed law, those twenty one and older who meet legal rules for gun ownership. It's not like just any buddy can go and get a gun. You gotta meet legal rules for gun ownership and they can legally carry a concealed firearm without a permit. What are the legal rules for gun ownership though? That's not clearly defined here. What they're referring to. You are what we haven't federal law. So if you are convicted felon, you will not be able to carry in Kentucky if you are. And of course, the whole Kentucky's relying through a whole country being convicted felon having been convicted of a crime of domestic violence if you've ever been adjudicated mentally unstable right committed your Mitchell institution. If you are not a citizen of this country are happily go permanent. You know, a green card if you gosh are vitual user of marijuana or other narcotic, if you I mean, the list goes on and on a Bill to are not allowed under federal law to desk or carry firearms. And that's what Kentucky quite rely upon here. I totally agree with a lot of what that was, you know, and and the people who've committed to mass shootings at which always calls for these knee jerk calls for action to severely restrict people's gun ownership rights and the ability to to own legally of firearm and the like. It all goes most of these mass shootings are all people who are obviously insane. There were plenty of red flags before why did they have a gun? Why were they able to possess a gun? Why didn't somebody pay attention to all the warning signs in the past? I mean, we saw that with the parkland shooting we've seen it, you know, dozens and dozens of cases are around the the only one that's a real mystery still is the Las Vegas shooting where we have absolutely still no idea why this guy went on this rampage and killed all those people at the concert venue in Las Vegas to this day. We still don't have answers about that. But mainly primarily these are people. Have you look at it in retrospect and hindsight's always twenty twenty. They were nuts. They never should have had access to a gun. Yes. That's absolutely true. And they actually were already restricted from firearms ownership under federal law, and it didn't keep them from getting a gun. Did it? Not. So that's the part of the problem. We have in this country. We expand gun or strike Shen. Is you're relying on people who have already broken laws arguments stable to agree to the social contract, which is the fellow by by the law. And unfortunately, when we continue to restrict, and we continue to just trust in criminals, and the insane that they will do the right thing in the law. What we're doing is your taking the guns away from people like you, and I who are willing to abide. Exactly exactly I live in Kentucky. And I'm not worried at all about this change in the law doesn't take effect until the end of the session, which is March twenty six ninety days after that it becomes law in the Commonwealth. And I am not concerned about this at all. I any any more concerned than I was when people had to have a permit to have a concealed carry weapon. Go ahead. See an increase in crime when states go to constitutional carry. So you are absolutely right to have no fears here. What do you think about this law? They Kentucky how what are your feelings on having a permit to have concealed carry? You know, any extension of second in that light is good. The only worry I have I live in a state that does not have constitutional Carey. So it's difficult for me to say. But the only worry I have is that I do think it's a good thing. Most states have sort of requirement. You know, house vote and operate your pistol before carrying I worry a little bit an uptick in negligent discharge is going to be established after constitutional Gary because you may have those people who don't really understand how to operate a pistol just go out and buy one and go for it. But it's certainly not going to increase crime or the criminal element. I worry it'll increase touch. Yeah. You touch on a great point, Emily previously. The law required a six hour gun safety and training class. And I I'm fully in favor of that. That's the only part of this that that kind of troubles me is that there's no training. I mean, there are plenty of places you can go and train yourself. And I think it's responsible thing if you're going to own a gun, and you're going to possess a gun and you're going to conceal carry a gun. He goes somewhere like point blank or somewhere like that. And you learn how to effectively use it. So you're rewrite there's no accidental discharge. We don't have these accidents happening with people who are not criminals because they simply don't know how to use the tool that's in their belt. You know what I mean? Absolutely. But you know, that's we know we will. I think wait and see how big a risk that actually poses. And by the way, if you're a Kentucky, and you still have the option to get a concealed carry permit. If you want to but why? And that's the other point is like why why give up the sixty bucks? Why go through all the hurdles at go through the hoops. When in a in about one hundred days, you're going to be able to legally possess a firearm. If you pass all the other gun safety regulations that are on the books. Federally in Kentucky. I don't know why anybody would go and get a permit now. Travelers. They still want to get a permit because bear in mind that he come to a state like, Texas, or if you're a frequent traveler outside of Kentucky you want to have reciprocity and you want to carry your pistol. You are way more likely to be with the permit. All right. Emily taylor. Thank you for your time this morning. Good stuff. Ninety days after March twenty six you'll be able to get a gun legally. And if you pass all the other federal laws that she mentioned you're over twenty one you'll be able to carry we'll take phone calls on this and more Gary jeffersonian on seven hundred w seven hundred wwl.

"In the supplier will will be hurting. Common sense of the argument that people like us. And now we have we have the environment where we can study. Flown. Beholder commonsense bears out the logic behind. You know, my initial argument was exactly what you just said. And I and I said look the cash cow one of the more reliable cash cows for the drug cartels is and it funds. A lot of their other businesses is is marijuana. And if you take that out, you're not gonna you're not really ever going to war on drugs is kind of a waste of money and a lot of ways, but you're not ever gonna win it. But if you really wanted to damage the cartels bankbook you legalize marijuana and take that away from them as a revenue stream. And of course, you know, again, it's not going to defeat them. But it would not come down a peg or two. So what we're now seeing is that that's actually happening that is fascinating. Now is this study able to show any causation, or is it simply correlation not that that seems to the other side because they throw out correlating studies all the time, but matters to me. Reports the reports the show causation it probably has to do with that. Go ahead. I'm sorry. Like, I said it'll be posted tomorrow and everybody can. Themselves. I imagine we'll be discussing that tomorrow. I I'd probably has to do with the drop in opioid demand as well. Because those states that legalized medical marijuana are seen a massive drop in opioid demand. Because of there's another option that's less addictive. And and marijuana is not nearly as addictive it's addictive at all. It's not addictive as opioids are. So if you have people turning to that instead of opioids to manage pain, you're going to see a lot less addicted people in rehab centers and Lewellen. That's exactly right. And that's the study we posted two days ago, which was published in the journal of medicine American Medical Association by university of Kentucky, professor not professor, but professor and and she's found that in states where medical marijuana. The prescription rates are of opiates go down. And so doctors are choosing the medical marijuana options. So their patient. So it's all things human nature. It's hard to predict but things are all interrelated. And there's no, but what were you know, marijuana? Good. I'm a number of fronts Kentucky to get on board. Huge help for epilepsy.

That's not who Kentucky are people know that it's time for legislators to reflect will be. Yeah, I agree with you. All right. I'm gonna play a sound bite for you. It doesn't indicate his supporter or or non support for this issue. But I thought it was interesting Senator Robert stivers. The president and Kentucky Senate was on with Terry minors yesterday. And the question came up, and they were talking about revenue. So I just want to run this by you. I'm gonna play what Senator stivers said about whether medical marijuana could be a revenue stream in. What is bad, and what is actually received in tax revenues as two different things and as to medical.
