Anti-abortion Democrats don't have a candidate to support

"Democrats are a big target of the pro life voter drive because it's estimated there are twenty million Democrats who identify as pro life Washington post has reported these pro life de Kratz don't feel particularly welcome in their party anymore candidates such as Bernie Sanders say if you're a Democrat you need to favor abortion on demand I think being pro choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat so that's kind of what my views I think by this time in history I think when we talk about what a Democrat is I think being pro choice is essentially a central part of that comments like that are being used by pro lifers to try to win over Democrats on the abortion issue we're talking to them about taxpayer funding of abortion late term abortion and the born alive issue the born alive issue refers to one of the bills defeated by Senate Democrats this week it would have required medical attention for a baby that survives an abortion which does happen I'm in twenty seventeen alone four states reported twenty five children born alive we don't have great abortion reporting in this country but of the four seats that do report twenty five children in one year that's legislation that seventy percent of Democrats support so there is consensus pro lifers also plan to use the born alive issue against North Carolina governor Roy Cooper Tammy fitzgerald is what the North Carolina values coalition at the state level you know in North Carolina we have a governor who approves of infanticide she's referring to governor Cooper's veto of a bill that would have required medical attention for infants surviving abortions in North

Senate Impeachment Trial Begins With Debate Over Rules

"The Senate impeachment trial kicked off for real this afternoon. The first step uh-huh discussion about setting the rules for the proceedings. Those rules will govern among other things. How long each side has to make their arguments and the timeline for the entire trial joining me? Now from the capital is Wall Street Journal reporter Chaban Hughes Chaban. What can you tell us about the preceding so far? What are we hearing from the players of the impeachment trial while the proceedings got off to a dramatic start that is probably a preview of how free flowing and open ended ended? Much of this trial is going to be at the very last minute. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell changed his proposed trial format initially. He had said that both sides had twenty four hours for opening arguments but those twenty four hours had to be condensed into two days for each side so we had been looking at very long twelve hour days starting at one in the afternoon going until as long as one in the morning and then Mr McConnell had also said that house gathered third. Evidence couldn't automats be admitted into their record. It wouldn't be accorded the status of true trial evidence and not caused an uproar among Democrats Kratz but also among some Republicans so Susan Collins complained about that. The results of very last minute change should the trial rules. That means they will be more days at at the outset for opening arguments and all of the material the House has gathered will be treated as evidence unless it is struck later on successfully by some motion

Just tonight Lev Parnasse. One of those two Rudy Giuliani associates and the effort to have Ukraine help trump investigators. Rivals also has agreed to give documents and testimony to Congress Arnesen was picked up while apparently trying to flee. The country has already been indicted on campaign finance charges and and refuse to comply with investigators. Initially last month. He and the other Guy Ebor fruman were also involved in the effort to oust one time. US US ambassador to Ukraine Maria Villanova who trump recalled back in May and that brings a big move from the house. Democrats to the four today today this morning. They went public with the impeachment inquiry releasing the first transcripts from witnesses who Baha behind closed doors gave depositions. Opposition's remember these other depositions that were being taken in private the same proceedings the Republicans wanted to disrupt a week ago. Oh demanding transparency. Well we got some of that transparency today nearly five hundred pages of testimony from the former former ambassador and a top aide to the secretary of state. Mike pompeo former ambassador Michael McKinley. They are now no longer secret. House Intelligence Committee Committee Chair Adam. Schiff described the essence of what the witnesses said. The apparatus of the State Department itself was being used to seek political information for a political purpose by the President United States and others. It's actually gripping reading as our former ambassador. Yeah Oven ovatch test to find. She learned of plans to get rid of her from quote people in the Ukrainian in government. WHO said the former prosecutor general was in communication with Mayor Giuliani and they had plans and that they were they were going to? Do you know do things things including to me she added. They told me I was. I really needed to watch my back. She also testified that when she asked former trump trump donor turned. EU Ambassador. Gordon Sunlen for advice on how to handle the attacks against her from Giuliani and trump allies. He quote said you know you need to go bigger go home you need to. You know tweet out there that you support. The President says a former foreign service official eventually called her at one in the morning to warn her quote. There was a lot of concern for me that I needed to be on the next plane home to Washington. She said I don't know. But this is about your security. You need to come home immediately late today. The president was asked what he knew about former ambassador. Graf Center which was the target of a smear campaign by the transcript descript. The president of Ukraine was not a fan of hers. Either I mean he did not exactly say slowing things. I'm sure she's a very fine woman I I just don't know much about her. Sorry for the multiple pronunciations yet on that July. Twenty fifth phone call with Ukraine's president trump said about the John Bassett or quote the former ambassador from the United States. The woman was bad news today. Four witnesses subpoenaed by House Democrats kratz including John Eisenberg.

Biden leads Trump in key battleground states but Warren does not, poll finds

"So got a couple the polls to get into I know there are two key polls that have come out today they both conflict one another Robin Oh says that he has a very simple answer surfer that but let's let's bring up I the New York Times Sienna College poll that was released just this morning it does appear that Democrats Kratz may be in trouble in some key battleground states it has how trump fares among likely voters so in Michigan trump is up for for Warren and now with Sanders Sanders is up three Biden is up one in Pennsylvania trump is up against sanders and Warren by one one and two respectively Wisconsin Biden's leading and a lot of these accept North Carolina trump is up in against Biden Sanders Anders and Warren and Let's see Florida Biden is up to SANDERS IS DOWN TO ELIZABETH WARREN is down four against trump clifford your thoughts on us you know looking at this poll with fascinated me was you have a situation where last cycle twenty only sixteen I mean you're talking about a billion dollar spent against the president and that's that's a generous range as high as two billion when you talk about negative campaigning but it all three of these individuals short biden vice president but you look at Bernie in you Look Elizabeth Warren I mean for the most part they really have not been tested yet when it comes comes to hard dollars being spent to paint them a certain way regardless of ideology money being spent to paint you as hey you should not like this person if either of those or any of the three camps very worried right now that the president is polling so well against them when no money has been spent the paint them in a negative light that's a really great point rob you agree I absolutely agree with that and the other thing is this again is a battleground poll and the other we're going to talk about is a national poll and when you look at the state by state poll what this shows is basically there's been no movement of trump verse generic them and these aren't even generic these are three doc well-known dem's there's been no movement between twenty sixteen and today if you look at the internals of the poll which which I saw nate Cohn who is the the polling analyst analyst for the New York Times was talking about if you look at White College educated people and you look across the line it's almost exactly the same if you look at white no colleges it's almost all the all the internals of the poll all the cross tabs are almost exactly the same as they were at the end of the two thousand sixteen election and the big mistake that the media Nia made in two thousand sixteen was focused on the national polling in not the steep steep battleground polls those state by state battleground polls showed movement towards trump MHM now I will say among likely voters this same poll the New York Times Sienna College poll among likely voters data is slightly more favourable for trump it shows him leading warren by three points up one point against sanders and then down one point versus Biden in the same states I'm not sure I don't have on here what the margin of error as well one one comment I'd I'd make is you know you look at these different candidates and you look at what they're trying to do what is their message you know we talk about since two thousand sixteen if impeachment is investment the message and I don't want to jump to it to our next topic but if if impeachments the message which we've seen like when you think Joe Biden what what is his campaign message right if you're a average let's say swing state voter and you think Joe Biden you're not sitting there thinking oh yeah his messages jobs or his message is XYZ wires e his message is the same as Bernie's which is the same as Elizabeth warrants which is we've got impeach the president and I think Democrats are missing the boat on this now it looks to the to the walks into the talking heads in the mainstream media you know they're in the loop and they're in the weeds and sure Elizabeth Warren has got a million different proposals but to everyday voters they're not getting that message and I think that people underestimate the value of running and trying to inspire voters I mean you look at what Obama did back and waiting twelve you look at what what trump did you're not seeing any type of national message from any of the leading contenders Running for the Democrat nomination you wonder if it might be that they are worried about spreading their message because they're the message that they would spread if they were to say hey this is my proposal is just everyone gets free stuff in your taxes because they're going to go up a ton you know what I mean it's like how does that I feel like they might be an a quandary because how does that sell to the American people you know when they've already got a great economy Armie we've got low UNEMPL- record unemployment numbers for minorities especially we've got things so going so well right now it's hard hard to run on these platforms that they are advocating for and where's the wedge issue right if you're a Democrat strategist right let's take off our belief in the constitution for a minute Democrat strategist what do you what do you tell these candidate because you're right record low unemployment record low for black America Asian Americans I mean the economy is roaring now I'd like us to cut cut some spending and I've got my critiques but if you're running a national campaign right now against President trump against the status quo in America it is difficult to find that that wedge issue and I think they have latched onto impeachment because they don't have another issue you know what what is it that they can dive in I mean even some of the major issues the left has tried to only criminal justice reform president trump has swiped from passing the first step day so I think if I'm a Democrat right now I understand why they're doing it but they've gotta to dig a little deeper to find a wedge issue that Americans actually care about and to your point In the article in The New York Times they interviewed some of the people that did the poll and there was a Young Woman that was basically Warren is crazy lately that was what she said like these policies to your point if they ran on on these policies they would be down even further into your point the two thousand eight in two thousand sixteen elections basically the same they were outsiders who said they were going to go in bring down the status quo trump is kind of done it and now they want to impeach him for it Obama didn't do it he got all in with the with the deep state with with the administrative state because that's really was he lied about who he was to get elected that he would go and change it but he did it and you know to your point on impeachment I don't I think it's GonNa work I mean look look at the nationals that they're talking about with impeachment right they're talking about forty nine percent want to impeach at fifty one or less than that don't want to impeach again these are adults nut registered voters not people that are actually going to decide the election Nancy Pelosi this weekend went on record saying that she doesn't you know what the Democratic candidates are doing it's because she knew that polling like this exists if the election were held today Donald Trump would get another four years in people's heads would explode let let me give you one quick note I was in an Uber in Florida northern Florida Florida matters especially coming in the twenty twenty I had a forty year old female independent Uber driver ever tell me and I asked her just totally I said you know what are your thoughts currently she asked what I do and she said you know I'll tell you this she says I'm not a huge trump fan but what they're are doing with this impeachment I'm going to have to support them because nobody should have to go through that process and it's just this this unfair bashing when he's trying to do good things and I mean coming independent in Florida I should tell you something that's incredible well the conflicting poll that we referenced earlier was of course it was a national poll as rob pointed out it was a Fox News poll of all things released yesterday that had his approval rating trump's approval rating at forty two percent with fifty seven percent of registered boaters disapproving of his job performance and somehow they threw Hillary Clinton's name in there which I mean Fox come on what are you doing to us that's right now why are you trying to convince her to run okay I get it ratings all right I got it but let's see trump is behind all of the top Tier Democrats in this this poll he is behind Joe Biden Fifty one to thirty nine he's behind Warren Forty six to forty one he's behind sanders forty nine to forty one and Nan Hillary Clinton forty three to forty one why did they what did they throw her name in their cliff just for fun since the torture US I think you'd be surprised that Hillary Clinton the Clinton family I mean walking away from power I'm not going to sit here and say I do expect her to get in but it wouldn't surprise me so I think you know Fox's probably right to ask the question but just go back to to the you know talking about national poll versus stay baseball's none of these folks have had the type of money spent against them them and I'm telling you that they can look at the polling early on they made this mistake in two thousand sixteen wants the money is spent once voters are actually paying attention or force the pay attention because a billion dollars will be spent against whoever the Democrat nominee is to paint them and they're gonNA paint you know they're going to spend money to paint themselves but when that money is spent that to me is when you're actually going to see the movements of the American people want to support them say throw this poll out but I will tell you that Hillary Clinton was up by those numbers in two thousand sixteen and she won the popular vote and she did not win the election because we're republic with an Electoral College and you need to do the state by state polls I think Hillary if she I think Senate on Friday but if Hillary wants to get in she's got eleven days now to register one hundred dollars a registered in the Hampshire so hillary is going to get in I think we know by November for fifteen but to your point in just to hammer your point home you're talking about two billion dollars hasn't been spent in media in burned media loan trillions of dollars have been spent against Donald trump over the past three years it's been every day it's been groundhog day this is the day we're GONNA get Donald Trump and and then they don't get it so I mean don't from negatives are pretty much as low as you're going to get him there's nowhere else to go

"Within these nights to have the hello. Hey Russ is great to talk to you I'm a registered nurse and I'm calling you because I have a great talking points that I think even are weak willed zero three four one two years it has to do with Bernie Sanders he had fabulous healthcare I believe he has the best healthcare you could possibly have been the world and I might even say he was probably fast tracked today to have this procedure. we get Medicare for all that many yeah one to have this kind of health care will not be available to anyone except possibly the Congress and the Senate. yeah you you mentioned that I I was wondering one hospital in Havana maybe Montreal I'm trying this crazy Bernie only honeymooned in Moscow he's taken vacations and have a family he's part of the crowd for Michael Moore and that thinks that the best test health care in the world is in Cuba. and so I thought maybe that's what we would call for his his heart procedure you you he was saying that he is accessing the American healthcare system. yeah and it's great good he didn't get second either Cuba or the Soviet Union because I'm not sure the outcome would have been the same. well obviously that's that's that's the see I am doing satire. I I'm doing it is it is quite obvious that when I say Hey what hospital in Havana is a year we want to send him some flowers. is it not obvious that I'm jamming. this silly SO beaver is still open claims about the American healthcare system. because here is right crazy Bernie and all the Democrats are running the American healthcare system and they don't care about fixing it. Kratz have had control of the house sans sure January. they won it in November two thousand eighteen they haven't done nothing they haven't done anything on healthcare all they've done is focused on getting trump and they haven't even done that. that's all they've done and that's all they're stupid voters want them to do. the Democrats don't care about people the Democrats don't care about the things that a claim to be protecting people against. what mold and the Democrats may just save your firm run away guns. what moves of the Democrat made to keep you safe in your school in your theaters they haven't done diddly squat. what are the Democrats done to make your life saving prescription drugs affordable they haven't done anything. they have not done diddly squat what have the Democrats done your protect your job and your wages from run away illegal immigration. what have they done to to to shore up the border to try to limit the number of people getting into the country illegally what have they done nothing they haven't done diddly squat. what else do you care about what other things do you think government has to take action on. in order for things to be. affordable or available because what ever it is in your mind that government should do. to help you the Democrats are not doing it. they are spending all of your tax dollars on pursuing Donald Trump they are pursuing their own. political and personal desires. using your tax dollars they're not.

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.

"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our

Trump proposes mental asylums, but silent on gun laws

"Still dealing with the aftermath of the mass shootings in dayton and paso so top democrats. It's are pushing for an assault weapons. Ban former vice president joe biden who currently leads the polls for the democratic nomination wrote an op ed pushing for the revival of the band that he helped write white dominican. Give us a sense of some of the front runners. The big names have been in terms specifically of this proposed assault weapons ban. I mean most democrats are in favor of that in fact the majority of the countries in favor of assault weapons ban in our n._p._r. P._b._s. newshour marist poll <hes> it was a strong majority of people who are in favor of that but that is not where fire the conversation has moved on capitol hill and in fact unless president trump is behind some of these initiatives. You're not going to see any republicans is really join in for most of these gun restriction measures because they need that cover and i think the biggest sign was last night when president trump decide to start talking about guns. He wasn't making a pitch to say even universal background checks. Hey something that almost ninety percent of the country supports something that eighty percent of republicans in in some cases support. He wasn't pushing that instead he was saying it's people who are mentally ill that we need to talk about an fact before. He left for his trip he started saying. Maybe we need institutions in this country again in lock these people up so he's not talking about even universal background checks or those red flag laws that have been been talked about by some republicans in congress. He's again back to talking about mental illness and just to clarify a bit more on that n._p._r. P._b._s. newshour poll fifty seven percent of americans and said they favoured an assault style weapons ban that includes eighty three percent of democrats fifty five percent of independence and among republicans it was just twenty nine percent said they favoured an assault style weapons ban and that gap tells you a whole lot about our politics. Y republicans don't do anything about that.

Why Should You Bring Ear Plugs to Music Festivals?

"Today's episode is brought to you by Oregon. You know, when something goes wrong at home, and you just freak out, I have definitely had my moments especially when it comes to pests ants in the mirror. Nara, cockroaches hanging out around your bubble bath and uninvited rat, a your daughter's birthday party. Don't let pests ruin the moment, get an architect out to your house tomorrow.

Fifty that's peo- d five zero Oregon home is where the bugs aren't. Welcome to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. I'm Lauren Vogel bomb. And as I record this we're in the throes of music festival season. These multi day concert art debauchery parties can be a blast but research shows that they can also be a bummer for your ears, the sheer length of some music festivals. For example, each weekend of Coachella runs three days with ten plus hours of Buzek every day, a, plus the widespread use of alcohol and drugs could inflict serious damage on your hearing with potentially permanent consequences. We spoke with Marshall Chason an audiologist from Toronto who specializes in hearing loss prevention for musicians. He says that there's nothing inherently bad about going to the occasional loud concert or cranking, your headphones up. Toback Salyan to listen to your favorite song, as long as you do it in moderation. That's where three day music festivals. Become a problem. There's a point at which all sounds above eighty five decibels equivalent to the dial tone. Telephone can inflict permanent hearing damage exposure, eighty five decibels of noise seems harmless enough? But if you listened to a dial tone forty hours a week for. A full year you'd suffer some level of permanent hearing loss. And if you turn up the volume to ninety four decibels, which is about halfway to full volume on an MP three player all it would take five hours a week to damage your hearing. Chason said, it's the total dose that matters much like a radiation dose, a single x Ray here. And there won't hurt you, but thirty seven x-rays in a short period could be problematic rock music at a live concert can easily reach a hundred and ten decibels at that volume. Your ears start sustained permanent damage after only two minutes of daily exposure, it's especially important to give your ears arrest. Once they've suffered some short term hearing loss that buzzing ringing or numbness in your ears after attending allowed concert. There's a recovery period of sixteen to eighteen hours during which your ears are particularly sensitive to further. Loud noises chasing said there's nothing wrong with going to a rock concert on Friday night. Just don't mow the lawn on Saturday morning in be careful about attending yet another rock concert on Saturday. If you don't let your ears rest, there are several ways that they can suffer lasting damage the inner ear smaller the tip of your pinkie finger in contains the cochlea a fluid filled. Snail shaped chamber lined with thousands of hair cells. Plumbed exposure to very loud noises. Disturb the fluid in the cochlea so violently that the hair cells bend, or break never to grow back, another source of permanent hearing damage says Chason lies deeper in the brain where nerve cells carry signals from the ear to nor on the process. Sounds growing research shows that overloading those neural pathways with loud noises can disrupt the connection creating situations where the neurons kit detect the signals coming from the ear. Luckily, the solution to noise, induced hearing loss for music festivals is simple. We're earplugs. Lots of concert goers, avoid wearing earplugs because they think it will muffle the music and ruin the experience. But that only applies to the cheap foamy disposable kind which to be fair. I've had perfectly fine experiences with however, there are excellent in obtrusive earplugs on the market. The protect the air from dangerous sound levels without distorting. The quality of the music professional musicians have been using them for decades. These are designed to evenly lower noise levels, somebody's much as twenty decibels across the hearing spectrum not just the high frequencies, you can find them for less than twenty dollars. And they're reusable. Oh forever. Weirdly drug and alcohol use at music. Festivals has also been shown to increase the risk of hearing loss. A study out of the Netherlands, tracked, fifty one participants with a mean age of twenty seven years who attended an outdoor music festival in two thousand fifteen half. We're given earplugs and half were not all were advised to refrain from drugs or alcohol so that they're hearing could be accurately tested after the four and a half hour show as to be expected, not everyone abstained. The resulting data showed the concert goers, who drank beer, or used drugs, like cannabis or MD, A, experienced, worse, short-term, hearing loss. And interestingly, so did male subjects whether on drugs or not? What's not clear from the data is whether the increased hearing loss linked to drugs, alcohol, and being male is biological or behavioral in origin Chason for one is convinced the drugs or male hormones, chemically altered, the inner ear to make it more susceptible to damage patterns of behavior are more likely at play. He said using alcohol or drugs, decreases, your ability to self monitor. So you're more likely to put your head right next to a loudspeaker your judgment is off, by the way, as far as professional musicians. Go more than half fifty two percent of all classical musicians experience hearing loss, compared with only thirty percent of rock musicians, Chason says it's a dose thing with classical musicians exposed more hours of loud issues it over their career than rockers.

Scotland wants to be the best place in the world for children to grow up

"The Scottish government wants Scotland to be the best place in the world for children to grow up or escape. It has has said that most children and young people get all the help and support they need from their parents whiter, family and community. But sometimes they might need a bit of extra support as part of Kratz. Yes. Part as part of this getting it right for every child strategy that's in capital letters. So it's it's an organism organization. You threw me off. Yes. It's an acronym. Greek the I'm not an acronym. It's an acronym. Right. Greek the government proposed getting all children and young people from birth to eighteen years access to a named person under the children and young people Scotland act of twenty fourteen the law has been stolen. Oh, what a named person is the person that they named. It's a specific person. It's an individual. Sponsor for the site. I see has been due to come into force across the country. Several times. It says that the name person is intended to be a single point of contact a child or parents want information or advice, or if they wanna talk about worries and seek support. They would also be a point for contact for other services. If they have any concerns about a child's wellbeing. So they're basically a guardian ad light them that has appointed at birth all the way through and if at any point this named person who could be a midwife health visitor head teacher deputy headteacher guidance teacher, depending on the age of the child. So by the sounds of it sounds like the kid will move through graduate, two different types of named people and likely these people will have several kids under their purview at any given time. This is bureaucracy. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Asian organizations such as a independent or grant aid and schools and the Scottish prison services for young people held in custody. We'll also have a legal requirement to make named person available to the children and young people in their care. The Scottish government says that children and families are likely to see little difference with the legislation merely formalizing the role that these professionals already have it's already happening. We've already stepped this far into your life. What does making it official now? I'm sure my kid won't have any problem with you know, the specific gardening ad-litem just pop it in and checking everything will be fine. Big brothers big sisters organization. Take a bowling.

Rallied for three goals in the final three plus minutes of the first period, but could score no more. After that. Even though they outshot the visitors from Vegas thirty six to twenty four the turning point came early in the second period when a sharks goal was negated because of interference on Logan Khachatur the officials ruled he was in the area where the goaltender was only allowed to be Vegas. Got a power play. They quickly converted and never looked back Vegas one of five to three and coach Peter toward the sharks was not happy the travesty of the call is you know, if they had called it goalie interference. We could have challenged it. I think the league would recognize flurry was outside the crease probably awarded us the goal, and we're up for three at that time and the it's a different game.

Almost like a piggyback starter or sometimes as in in the mix with their openers where he'll follow somebody who starts the game. Because he's got three pitches. But he's he's really a to pitch pitcher. Wanted to he throws Kratz pokes one right centerfield care Meyer hustling, and he's not gonna get two drops basic their practice. I hit with the giants or one out single very defensive swing, but he'll take it. Giants have their first base runner the day. Be Torino's literally to right Anders. It's fastball slider two left. It's fastball splitter, that's it. And he never mixes matches that off-speed stuff. So for each individual hitter. It's just a to pitch approach. Kratz Zabel to get the barrel of the bat on the ball there for the first giants hit a game. Now pomeranz. We'll see if he's Bunning. He is not showing bunny slashes at the first one and hits screamer foul off to the right. On the cow. Raise one giants. Nothing. The strategy can always change for the pitcher up there. Hitched to pitch count to count. Cure Meyer comes way in and shades toward right-center field. The right fielder Garcia is also way in in right against Pomeranz who now squares bought polls the bad back and takes fastball right down the middle for strike too. Well, if you're gonna but that that would be a pitch where you probably would try.

Morocco, Saudi Arabia And Tunisia discussed on The Brookings Cafeteria

"Do you see as the primary signals that these Arab spring movements and protests sent to autocrats in the region about the dangers? Democratic movements posed to their own stability and rule. So when the uprising in Tunisia succeeded ousted Zena, Lebanon, Bonelli Tunisian, President it sent a message to protesters around the region that maybe this is possible in our countries to. But as you mentioned also sent a message to autocrats around the region that we need to figure out a way to avoid collapse. And so some autocrats learned how to weather the storm. And so you saw for instance, in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf monarchies that they were able to draw upon their oil wealth and provide economic concessions very quickly and large enough to satisfy the protesters. So you saw Saudi Arabia, for instance, allocate some ten billion salary increases and subsidy increases other monarchs such as in Morocco in Jordan couldn't rely on their oil wealth as they did not have any so they had to rely instead on political concessions. So you saw in Morocco in Jordan that they learned to get ahead of the protests by initiating constitutional reforms to. Hold relatively competitive elections. And even in Morocco. Those elections led to an opposition party coming to power an Islamist party informing the government. So those monarchs were able to survive through that combination of oil wealth and structural advantage of being able to even allow an opposition party to come to power in a monarchy in a way that didn't threaten the king as he didn't have a ruling party that he needed to continue winning could allow an opposition party to win the republic's on the other hand didn't have either of those oil wealth or that monarchic advantage. So they had to learn in a different way, which was for the most part to rely on repression as opposed to concessions, so for instance, in Syria and button, and you saw the autocrats instead turn to their militaries to try to repression crust these protesters you saw similar attempts in Libya and Yemen. But in those cases, those military's fractured leading more to civil war than to audit critic survival as in Syria and Baden, an Egypt and Tunisia the concessions were not great enough. And. Military sided with the protesters in the end ultimately dooming, those dictators there remember at the time. A big part of these protests was the use of technology is considered the Facebook inspired revolutions everyone on the streets was on their cell phones. Coordinating meeting points at the time technology is seen as advancing. The will of the people. Do you see technology as playing and enhancing role of the power of the autocratic regimes in the region as well? Absolutely. I mean, the autocrats also learned to use social media to their advantage right on the one hand, it sends a message also to the autocrats where the protests are going to be on the other hand leads Sada Kratz to repress right to censor Facebook, Twitter and social media, generally. So I mean, the autocrats were able also to learn that we need to do something about social media in a way that they hadn't before. So to flash forward to present day. Skip ahead. Eight years it has been eight years since the Arab spring movements rocked the Middle East and the Arab world. And there is a narrative which says that the Arab spring was a time of euphoria and hope a time when leaders such as President Obama said the Arab spring was a moment when the people have spoken their voices have been heard other commentators said Egypt will never be the same. And in the years since this hope has a road into a reality of cynicism and disappointment parts of the region are in a seemingly. Endless state of evil and turmoil.

Jacob DeGrom of New York Mets wins NL Cy Young Award

"The Cy Young award winner. Anyone who debated or thought other than that doesn't understand baseball or follow it closely or not he got twenty nine of the thirty first place votes. Max Scherzer got one. And of course, degrom got that voters second place votes. Scherzer's got all twenty nine other second place votes. So they kind of ran away from the field. Aaron Nola the Phillies. More power to 'em had a phenomenal season. Good for Aaron got twenty seven. Of the thirty third place votes. She got one fourth two fourth place votes and one fifth place while was far ahead of Kyle Freeland who finished fourth in the Cy Young bounding but good for Jacob degrom. He wins the NL and the winner in the American League was Pike's. Now took it over Justin Burland race a lot. Closer new American League snout got seventeen first place votes. Berliner got thirteen. So is actually pretty close. But I will tell you why both Blake's now and Jacob degrom won their respective Cy youngs. Three letters e r. A for all the turnover in baseball and the over analytics of baseball and the new stats they have for baseball. The key stat in pitching is still earned run average who on the AL crown for ERA this year that would be breaks now who won the earned run crowned in the National League. And it wasn't close. Jacob degrom that why those two guys are deci young. So I was glad see kudos to the voters voted in these and have different guys vote for different awards and the like, so I give credit to those who voted for those two pitchers because they were bad their best pitchers in their league. This year they deserve to win. They both rightfully get their Cy youngs. Why because they had the best earned run averages any American League. Now, I think it was maybe somewhat telling the Phillies made a move. They changed their pitching coach. I actually thought recruits did a pretty good job this year the last couple of years under peak mechanic, and I wasn't a big fan of his pitching coach. I thought the police should have made a move there prior to they never did delay let mechanic go, and then they put a whole new staff together and elevated recruits on gig Kappler staff and a broaden Chris young who hadn't been doing scouting work for the Astros his first year as a pitching coach. He was the assistant pitching coach here in Philadelphia. And I guess he opened some is and impressed some people and they wanted to do something to change his coaching staff. Some many decided would be at the pitching coach position. So they let go and Chris young will be the Phillies pitching coach for this upcoming year. I don't quite get it. I don't understand it. I don't think Kratz Cranach was the biggest problem this year. Although I did go back and check the Phillies numbers again. Tonight. And I had forgotten how mediocre they were on the pitching side. This side of the guy who finished in third place in the Cy Young Aaron Nola the league ERA this year. Average dead average that's detrimental. That's not great. If your average you gotta be above average. If you want to have any kind of a winning season the league average for earned run average this year. Was four point zero two in the National League here. The Philly pitchers that had ER as above. Are under four point zero to that Curtis who I I always liked Curtis. And I don't quite understand why they didn't give him a chance this past year. He's a lefty us top one lefties, and I thought he should have been given a better chance. He was only in seven games Ziara was sub to at one eighty six do Brera Mosul. Be part of the bullpen again. This year. Aaron Nola initiate who. I know is the IRA ended up at two two point five nine, but I'm tired, and I don't I don't care about knee shack anymore. He's got issues. He's not tough. He doesn't want the ball. He was great at home for long stretches this season. But he was also injured. He's blatantly overpaid going into this year. His ERA says decent year, my eyes. Tell me not really so Arana was solid at two seven three. He'll be back again this year cer- Anthony to ninety five he may be closer feed. Not he's going to be a key component near Penn. Avalon who came over in the trade didn't pitch a whole hell of a lot five and two thirds innings. But at least he did keep his ERA onto four Tommy hunter who I didn't think cat a good year. But his ERA was under four at three point eight zero. Didn't get as many strikeouts. He doesn't walk is a game. Crazy doesn't walk a ton. But I'll give them enough credit that he got it under four and Aaron Morgan at three eight three and Jake Arrieta three nine six so Ariana which just below just above average this year just above. And by the way, I expected a lot more but better than the rest of the pictures. Davis four one five not good enough. Zach f one four thirty six not good enough. Delo Santos who dominated and AAA got a couple of shots in the big leagues. Including a couple of starts. Four seven four. Not good enough. Nick Vada four seven seven not good enough Vinnie Velazquez, four eighty five not good enough. Jake Thompson who they moved on from Hector Narus actors Hecht is the kind of pitcher is gonna get manages wired. Gabe Kaplan is going to get fired because act the narrows, they're probably it'd be a couple of other contributing reason. But Hector narrates will be part of it five ten, and I know he got hot at the end of the year and actually gave him some good outings in September. You wanna make captain Ariza? Key component your pen next year, you go there. I'd rather not. And so on and so forth down to the Jared. I'd coughs in the world and the mine hall. We Milner at a world. Just not good enough to Phillies don't have enough pitching. And nobody's talking about the Phillies upgrading their pitching during this off season. It's all about Harper and Machado, and if not are Machado, we only get one. What are the other moves going to be they need upgrade the pitching? And just making Chris young. They're pitching coach isn't going to be enough for my money. So have you wanna get on on the Phillies Aaron Nola congrat- vision? Third in the Cy Young had a hell of a season wanted a better starting seasons. We've seen in a while. You gotta go back to Lee and holiday and hamels in the light. We're good couple of removes for years removed from having a to ace and affiliates.

Democratic House Threatens Trump’s Business Agenda

"Before too long, President Trump may find out how difficult it is to enact as business agenda with a divided congress. The Wall Street Journal says the Democrats winning the house will likely create hurdles for the GOP on issues from taxes to trade to healthcare here to explain this. As the Wall Street Journal's Chester Dawson who joins us via Skype, Chester the reason for this is that it'll be hard to pass a lot of legislation without house approval. Isn't that right? Yeah. That's true. Basically what this means is that any new majors legislation that the Trump administration or the Senate wants to get through is going to run to a major Earl in the house. However, it doesn't mean that the legislation that's already passed the tax cuts. Things are going to be rolled back. So we're kind of in this stasis where we're not going to go to our Ford or to back give some examples won't the GOP face roadblocks, for instance, on tax cut initiatives set in motion last year. Yeah. Well, the GOP had essentially wanted to. Attend those for example, making the personal income tax cuts permanent, and they're clearly not going to be able to do that. And in other ways, you know, large and small mostly small the Democrats are going to be able to use their control the house to do things like bring much greater oversight to the regulatory efforts that the Trump administration is pursuing. So that could have a big impact on companies and industries like energy, finance and other areas where the Trump administration is trying to curb or rollback regulations that were put forth mostly during the Obama administration will House Democrats can't roll back GOP bills without a majority in the Senate, isn't that? Right. Yeah. That's right. So you're going to be in this weird situation where probably not a lot gets done either way. However, there may be room for some compromise on things like an infrastructure Bill or perhaps some legislation to control drug prices. Is something the President Trump is signal interest in and may be able to find common ground on with the Democrats. But broadly, you're right. We're not going to see a whole lot of legislation come out of the chamber at least not before twenty twenty talk about trade a little bit. The White House struck a new trade deal to replace NAFTA. It's called the US Mexico Canada agreement that can't pass without congressional approval. Exactly. Yes. As a trade treaty. It's gonna be ratified by congress. And Mr. Trump is going to have to walk the Bill through and it's interesting because while in some ways, the Democrats are probably not going to be eager to end him a victory and may actually force him to reopen the deal to some renegotiation that Kratz probably also don't want President Trump people the hang on them the unraveling of the deal, particularly if the predecessor deal NAFTA goes away, and then you just set a situation where you've got nothing. So most people think that this new trade deal will get through in one way, shape or. Form or another may take some time as I said, it may have to be partially renegotiated, but nobody really wants to be blamed for allowing the claps at trade in North America can the Democrats put pressure on Trump in the GOP in this trade deal through pushing for provisions say more favorable to labor unions. You know, would Trump in the GOP ever go for that that seems to be like it's going key? Because you know, the Democrats are not going to want to do Republicans a favor and may request some additional concessions and labor is probably the the hottest topic there. So you know, labor is obviously a big supporter of the Democratic Party and will probably push democratic legislators to do something on that. There may be other things as well. But that seems to be the hottest. But I believe you mentioned just a little while ago that House Democrats could derail attempts deregulation through these oversight committees. Yeah, I think it's not so much that they would derail it, but they could certainly slow it or make life much more difficult. For cabinet officials that are trying to pursue it. You know, not only will they request lots of documentation and lots of testimony tying up executive branch officials who need to be paid for these hearings. But they also may call heads of industry who benefited from some of these deregulatory moves over the past couple of years. So while they can't do anything legislatively necessarily to stop it..

Early voting in Texas begins with lines, strong turnout

"Sweeping campaign against politics as usual, he's not a really didn't criticize cruise until the last couple of weeks his campaign for a year and a half has been to go around Texas say let's find different way to lead America. And now he's spending money on Facebook live edge personal ads personal appeals. I saw six and a half hour last night personal messages of them talking to people in Texas say, let's do something to change Texas using network chain. He's telling people this is the most important election lifetime. So he's developing a young strong personal following. Here's somebody who played a punk rock band or skateboards, but who has the sweeping appeal of a young Kennedy figure, and so he's become very charismatic, and it's caused many people who were moderate Republicans. Take a look at him after Ted Cruz is put a presidential campaign. Take crews, obviously was popular in Texas, but also lost some Trump voters know Ted Cruz has to appeal. Trump voters work is trying to win over voters who were disenchanted with Ted Cruz. So is this part of a rebuilding effort by the Aurore campaign for the Democratic Party? In addition to his own race for the US Senate. They're almost as nothing to rebuild. This is the the battle Kratz. There is very little Texas Democratic Party to build on the party has managed forty two. Forty four percent of the vote in most of the recent elections, the Obama Clinton campaign. Screw forty four percent. Duma candidates have gotten into thirty percent sometimes in this midterm election. So the Democrats don't even have a county chairs in many, Texas counties. There is no democratic structure. This is not that'll rebuilding the Texas Democrats. This is better running his own party. And some democratic candidates may be able to ride into. Offices a result. We're talking with bud Kennedy. Here's a metro columnist in Fort Worth Texas for the star telegram as you look at the returns coming in on election night, where does Ted Cruz need to do. Well, and where does beta over Orkney to do? Well, there are two interesting markets in Texas. No one is on and one is Corpus Christi. They're both metal size markets that voted for President Obama. But then turned around and voted for President Trump Celica Cruz needs to keep those markets in the red side. He's a field that he was the one who is there to help them during hurricane Harvey. He was one help who helped bring relief to the Gulf Coast area. The both of those areas are considered the swing markets in Texas for congressman or work. Karen county is considered the bellwether Tarrant county is what? It's the third largest county in Texas actually larger than all sorts of San Antonio. It's considered a bellwether that the numbers the percentages in Tarrant county almost exactly match the statewide percentages. Federal work has worked very hard trying to win. Our come close Tarrant county to make up some of the gap. It's so largest reliably red urban county two years ago, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were bitter rivals. Senator Cruz did not even endorse. Donald Trump onto the stage at the convention in Cleveland, Ohio for the Republican national convention. What changed Ted Cruz is seeing things that he wanted to accomplish have been accomplished by President Trump? And basically if you remember when Ted Cruz started running for president he wanted to be the ball charged into wash turns everything over broke everything started over again, he wanted you what President Trump is do it. So Ted Cruz is saying that the results President Trump's administration had been essentially what take crews would have done if he were elect. Did except obviously with a different style. Ted Cruz is managed to convince President Trump says that that crews each Trump and Trump meets crews. And so they're big rally in Houston is the new the new love match with the two here in Texas. And finally, but Kennedy you're on the ground, you're talking to friends and neighbors, you're seeing the advertising on social media and on television. What is this race feel like to you? This has been fascinated. There's been so much talk about it for so long. It started out feeling like a small little Texas movement. There was so much rural and Christian. You see these pictures that would come in of big crowds in which falls on level later gangs. Molin you look at the all farmers and rural voters and people who normally wouldn't even have seen a democrat. We're turning out some of those like a dinosaur. It comes Mel detail. So they went and they came out to see this democrat. And then at some point it changed. Do we say that? That's when it went from being Texas Beto to Hollywood, and he did the national TV shows, and it became more like a a Grateful Dead tour where I went from town to town people were actually going and collecting all the t shirts and every town and following him on to cheer. It was like it was like the Beto heads run all around any sort of losing a little bit of following world Texans there, but he still has a tremendous amount of support for for teachers and educators in Texas who feel picked on the current Texas administration. Teachers and educators are have turned out a large a large number of votes for the first time in probably thirty or thirty five years. It's still tough to believe in Texas. We say never believe a democrat will win until you see the votes happening. It's like snow never believe it's going to snow until you see it falling feel the same way about Democrats winning. It's been chrome. So many times, but it has happened since but Kennedy a columnist in Fort Worth Texas. His work available at star telegram dot com. Thank you for being with us. Thank you.

"Again tonight. There are a couple of changes though. Greg Matic is at Dodger Stadium live the lineup. Just out Greg. Oh, yeah. Just released by Craig counsel Jonathan scope playing. Second base hit earning the start. That's because the dodgers have a lefty on the bounty and rich hill so Travis saw will start tonight on the bench. But expect to see some action at some point in this game. It's not uncommon for shot. Actually, get more at bats than the starting position player given game when he does come off the bench, so minor tweet to the lineup. Otherwise, it looks very much similar to what we saw last night. Pena catcher Kratz getting arrest in the top of the order going with Scott in the job done. So far. Yeah. It really it. It's been the bottom of the order. That's been so phenomenal to watch. John. I think you expect to see some results out of Cain yell at Brandon in the guys that are hitting the top of the lineup, but anybody expected three home runs and six postseason games for Orlando arsia. Erik Kratz was maybe the best brewers hitter during the course of the LDS and had a big double in last night's game Manu Pena when called upon is Ben there at his defense has been outstanding too. But those guys have been table centers even pitchers have factored into this. And you'd never know who's going to be the guy or the guys for the brewers in a given game. But it's been kind of an everyman approach GIO Gonzalez gets the start. He was on a very short leash last time the bullpen as well rested. Shortly showed imagine again today. Greg. Yeah. It's more by design. I wouldn't look at it. As a matter of ineffectiveness in his last start. I think it was more a matter of trying to dictate what the dodgers starting lineup might look like. And then what do you make a switch forcing a guy out of the game? So what happened in game number one? Is that David freeze started at first base? But by the time Gonzales was out of the game in Brandon was inserted David freeze was out of the game. They went to a backup pretty good player in max Muncie. But nonetheless it forced the position player out of the game in the third inning. So that was kind of a big deal part of the fest man that you'll see here, but it's very clear to meet van that Craig counsel has two guys he will trust to go five innings or more. That's Wade Miley and you'll scene seen in the other games. It's better combination. It almost like two pictures accounting for those five innings so tonight, it could be Gonzales followed by Brandon Woodrow for maybe Corbin burns. Even Freddie Peralta is an option. I don't think it's likely you'll see junior Gary in that second row. But it's certainly possible, but that's always attacking it. And for the doubters who indicated that it just won't work throughout the course of a seven game series. It's hard to say, it's not working. Look what the brewers pitching staff is done. They have three shutouts in seven games. Some kind of tired of listening to all the national chatter about the dodgers starters. I mean, the brewers starters have been almost unhittable. You can't score on these guys. Yeah. And really, it's it's the whole staff. I mean, you look at what the the initial outfitters have done and only one guy has an IRA for goodness sake. So that's pretty remarkable. They don't have a lot of innings logged. But nonetheless, they're setting the table for the relievers to come in. And when your bullpen is as deep as the brewers is you have multiple options on a given night. And I think Craig counsel got plenty of options to us tonight. Just given how guys were used in last evening's game Jeremy Jeffers, maybe ninety three Twenty-one pitches. He's appeared at every postseason game so far, but I would think able and Soria in hater would be available tonight for council should he need them. All right. Greg. Live in Los Angeles. All right. We're gonna take your phone calls brewers going into game for how do you feel about this team? How excited are you? Are you nervous a little bit confident both how do you feel about this brewers team as we head into game?

"Yielders not nasty that she seem doesn't have a nasty slider. But I think they're getting a little bit of help right now. And that's spoken by former position player. So I'm going to take that side. So you're with a great assault every here's Erik Kratz down, and nobody on Milwaukee up one nothing chop to France, the thirty eight year old catcher as he swings and polls. One foul down the third base line. And it was headed off the wall back out into left field where the left field unpire, Greg Gibson, just kind of casually moved his right foot out a little bit in deflected away for the ball. Boy who was trying to chase it down down. It's a foul. Ball would want on Kratz over four this series went five for eight in the division series. One of the way too fast bowler. Daddy, seventy refers strike oh into an ice story. And you and I talked to briefly in the tunnel around the clubhouse before the game. Thirty eight years old did make the majors till he was thirty never played in the postseason until this year. So you talk about a guy probably with the the perspective to really enjoy the moment. That's aircrafts. Oh, two for bueller. Fastball way up high all one. Just a pitch. They're to change. So the sites of aircrafts get him looking up and moving off the plate a little bit. Usually what will follow after picks like that is something down in a way. See if that's where they're going to one two, and it is a curveball that was down not away, but below Zorba Kratz had to chase.

But Mike Lindell is creating a pillow for my book, Donald drains the swamp. And it's gonna it's gonna take a couple of weeks to to get it out. But the book, Donald drains the swamp. I was on E just yesterday was on the blaze radio with doc Thompson in the morning and then in the afternoon, I was on the Dennis Prager show would Sebastian Gorka and the book is suddenly like rocketing up the charts. And I think it's going to sell out of the first printing they probably didn't print enough. And so you're going to get the second printing. If you don't order it soon. Right. That's just a warning. Because a second printing is not as valuable in the future. No, you want the first printing edition. Hey, I'm just saying, you know, you do what you want. But the the the the the stories is getting out there and people are excited about it. I'm going to be on Joe Piscopo tomorrow. So a lot of stuff going on. But I wanna talk before we to cross in about last night. Yes. Last night. We had Socrates in the city, and I want to tell you. I think maybe he was my favorite of all that. I've done I told you afterwards. I it was it was not number one into a million of. Oh, yeah. On over the years. I used to volunteer years ago. Yeah. And. Help you out. And you could you could and you and your and your then girlfriend an would show up. That's right. And now, she's my then wife. That's right. But so so. Last night. Our guest was Mark help written a lot of people think think Mark Halperin, the political. No, no, no, Mark hell print the fiction writer, Mark Helprin. He is without any question. One of the greatest fiction writers. In recent decades without any question when I read his short stories and his novel winter's tale and his novel a soldier of the great war. There is something about his writing. I have never seen. It's equal period. Never never. Absolute genius. I mean genius on the level of Nabokov Updike Cheever. He's he's in that rank and his fiction. It's only equalled by Cheever in terms of the spiritual quality the core. The ability to to uplift beautiful. Shared some fun Cheever's stories all well. Let me tell you. He is one of the most entertaining. Yeah. I got a quote from last night hung out with I wrote this down to die. Well, you have to live. Well, yeah. And that's it for me. I did. But but actually seriously he he is one of the most thoughtful and entertaining people apart from being one of the greatest writers ever. So to have him it Socrates in the city last night. I I was. Rather in awe of him. When when you read his stuff, you can't help, but be ov him, if you're sensitive to that kind of thing to that kind of a poetic and fictive if that's a word ability. But in person, he's so entertaining. Now, if you go I'm going to post this on Facebook and on my weekly Eimi blast on Twitter. We did a Facebook live last night, and I should have advertised that so people could watch it. But I didn't really do. Good job with that. But you can still watch it because it was taped. Now, we're going to get an official beautifully edited Socrates in the city video. I don't know how long that will take. But right now, you can watch the conversation from last night with Mark Halperin. I will I'll put it on the EIB last. If you don't get my weekly Email from my website, not Metaxas. Talk dot com. Metaxas. Talk dot com is the radio website. But my website is Eric Metaxas dot com. If you go there and you'll see that there's a excuse me, a a place where you can fill it. In says get Eric latest thoughts. We Senate a weekly e blast. I will link there. You need to go there as soon as you can to get on the thing. So when we send out tomorrow, you'll get it. But it'll linked to this the event was just magical. I have to say I was just so honored that he was there. With his wife. They drove down. They drove from Virginia rural Virginia where they live. They have a farm. They drove up to Boston for some event. And then they drove to New York to do this event. And I guess they're going home today. But I immediately afterwards bought a book of his short stories Ellis Island and started reading the one about the mountain climber. Reuters spits that's it the other Germany, and I'm halfway through this brilliant credible. Brilliant is the only word because there's nothing like it. He he takes imaginative leaps. Yes. That are breathtaking. I have never seen anything. Like, I mean, it's just genuinely breathtaking talent. Did you ever read the Eiger sanction treve Nian? No, okay. Well, I love that of that genre. But it as people will see the first story in this collection, the Ellis Island and other stories is the Schroeder Spitzer and the first line of it. I'll never forget it. The first line is in Munich are many men who look like weasels. It's very funny the opening paragraph, very funny and Mata humor too. But that's what's so interesting. Is that his writing has a powerful? Moral quality of a deep romantic quality. It really moves the heart like almost nothing I've ever read. And yet it also has real brilliance and wit and humor. So he's just a treasure. He's a treasure. He's he's seventy one is a character to and when you interview him you'll see this. If you watch it, and again, it's going to post it on all the social media. But if you watch it, there's just nobody liked this guy. I mean, he he has had the most charmed storied existence. I have ever encountered. He knows everybody. He's met everyone. He met Winston Churchill when he was a kid he met he just it goes on and on and on because his parents were rather famous people. He has a couple of anecdotes he'll share about John Cheever meeting. John. I mean, he was friends with John Cheever, which to me that's like being friends with Nathaniel Hawthorne. I can't even believe that he was friends with Cheever, but just wild wild stuff. And then in the Q and A we have these VIP dinners afterward where it's a smaller group of twenty five or so people, and we do some Q and A, and he reveals some stuff in the VIP dinner. I thought for crying out loud. I wish we'd had more time to record all this. I mean, he told stories of of meaning a guy who knew Walt Whitman. He it just goes on and on and on. So anyway. There speaking picking that spinach out of your teeth, and he's talking about what Whitney second about a guy who he knew who knew it goes on and on and on anyway, folks in a couple of seconds. We've got Tucker Carlson. Really terrific really terrific in an hour or two I'm talking to Gosnell movie, folks. This is a replay of something we put on last week. You can't miss it.
