"It's it's really remarkable. So let's go through this list. I think it's important. So if just to kind of remind people, the whole idea of DeSantis and this primary evaporating is not helpful to the Democrat algorithm. The awful polling with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the Hunter impeachment. But then let's kind of get to the Mitt Romney, no labels thing. Anyone can chime into this. Blake, Andrew, smart money is that Joe Manchin and or Mitt Romney or so coalition is going to run a splinter strategy here. None of this was supposed to happen in 2023. So, Blake, kind of lead us through this. Do you think we're going to see some competitive by competitive? I mean, marginal defining third party candidates running for office. But I mean, it always feels like such narcissism when they talk about these things. It feels like every four years they're like, this is the year we're going to have a real third party that takes off. And really, the third party that took off was Donald Trump. And he just took over a major party because he was so successful at it. He's like, I'm going to take the Ross Perot energy of the 90s, mix in a little of the you know, the Pat Buchanan energy and little some little normal Republican stuff and just take over a major party. He is the winning third party. But will we see a third party run? I think we could, because there is this real sense that, as you say, the machine is breaking down, that they had this intent that, you know, we could use 2023 to set things up so 2024 is just this walk over, you know, the election on autopilot. They thought, you know, Donald Trump, he does, you know, he focuses a lot on his own affairs. So if we indict him, he'll like totally implode, obsess over his criminal cases, forget all about the national election. He'll get totally derailed in this primary. And they just thought they could set everything up so it would all line up and there's no competitive race whatsoever. And instead, that plan is cracking apart. And what's very funny is, you know, what none of them were banking on. Clearly, none of them were actually making any plan on will win because Joe Biden will have a successful presidency that people want another four years of. Nobody was banking on that. They were just banking on we can make it so that Trump falls apart. They aren't able to mount an effective campaign. We you know, we have ballot harvesting, we have mail in voting, we have the machine set up to be so slick and efficient that it's just impossible to have a competitive race no matter how disastrous things are by 2024. And instead, they're getting caught off guard by shocker. It turns out that when the walls were closing in on Trump, he was not actually beaten forever. Only the 50th time that's happened. And then on top of that, the Biden administration is even more of a mess than they were originally anticipating. You know, inflation might be coming back again. We see gas prices getting more expensive. The Ukraine war seems to be going really badly again. And, you know, so that could be Afghanistan 2.0 by next year, where this thing just turns into a total disaster. And there's so many things going awry. And then on top of that, Joe Biden has sort of burned a lot of his credibility with the left, which they thought would be fine. And instead they have Cornel West, a person that if you're on the left, you've actually heard of. He's running for president. He's not, you know, he's not won over by all these things that, well, if you run, you're going to let Trump get elected. He's biting that bullet and saying, I don't care.

"Sinema's exit from the Democratic Party. It's a surprise when someone leaves a major party because we know that typically independent candidates have a hard time winning. Chris and cinema is in a bit of a different situation, she's got low approval rating among Democrats in Arizona. She doesn't have a democratic base that she can rely on and she had a real legitimate fear of facing a potentially a strong primary challenge before her 2024 race. So she seemed to cast this as a matter of how she views herself in Washington that she doesn't fit with either party. This is sort of an ideological issue. But it sounds like maybe you think this is about her polling. This is about her stance in Arizona. Is this about her place in the caucus? Or her security and potentially lack of popularity with her constituents? Sure. Well, you know, Kristen sinema has made a lot of big headlines for obstructing or delaying Biden's legislative agenda and a number of ways, but ultimately she's voted with the Democratic Party somewhere between 93 and 97% of the time, depending on how you're calculating her party loyalty score. So her party, your voting record actually doesn't look like a real moderate necessarily. You know, we are in an age now where we expect a lot of party loyalty out of our representatives, but she does typically vote with the Democratic Party, as I said, upwards of 93, 97% of the time. Arizonans on the other hand are plurality Republican. There's a lot of Republican voters in Arizona. They outnumber Democrats. The second most populous group of voters in Arizona are independents.

Walgreens Says It's Closing Five SF Stores Due to Crime
"It's an interesting question I posed here given that they are shutting down these Walgreens and targets in San Francisco. And due to theft theft is due to the fact that the Democrats are okay with theft. I hereby announce I risk my reputation as a thinker as a broadcaster as a decent human. When I state to you, theft is okay with the Democratic Party. Okay? So let's be clear, clarity is the essence of truth. The Democratic Party in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia is okay with stealing. Is that clear? If it isn't clear, you're lying to yourself and I can't help that. But I'm not lying to myself. That is how low we have gotten. In the moral sphere in this country. One of the two major parties is okay with stealing. Indeed, it makes it possible. Low lifes like George Soros fund people who are okay with stealing. That George Soros has the respect of Democrats tells you only one thing and that is the low level of morality in the Democratic Party. The man is loathsome, truly loathsome. He funds people who do not prosecute theft. But they laugh, they laugh at us religious folks who actually believe that do not steal comes from God. Oh, how silly dilly. You silly, religious people believe that God is against theft. Makes us Democrats laugh. You make us laugh your religious people. We are the sophisticates. Walgreens is closing 22 locations. KPIX channel 5 rereads back to Walgreens for clarification and Walgreens clearly stated the closure of all 22 store locations is directly due to an increase in retail theft.

"Just want to stick with the liberals and conservatives here because these these guys are the ones who have been in government and so canada has missed every emissions reduction target. It sets everyone since the early nineties. And according to the most up-to-date data available between nine thousand nine hundred two thousand nineteen under the conservatives and then the liberals we have seen canada's greenhouse gas emissions. Go up twenty one percent while they've gone down for other g seven countries like germany and the uk. So what do you think should give voters confidence at this point. That either party would take the action needed to hit their respective targets. That they've sat out here. Why should anyone believe them. Yeah voters have a lot of reason to be cynical about canadian. Political parties climate promises because in addition to missing all those international targets. We've had a. I don't know nine. Ten eleven different national climate plans in the most important measures in all of them have never been implemented. I do think some important things have shifted candidate now has put in place a policy Structure and architecture carbon pricing is central so for a long time the reason we failed as we kept pretending. This would be easy that someone else would clean up. It wouldn't cost anyone anything. And i think what we are starting to see even the conservatives in their twenty twenty one platform is a recognition that mandatory measures are what we need. We need carbon pricing. We need regulation to reduce our emissions. It's not gonna happen voluntarily There was significant emissions growth from nineteen ninety to two thousand five and since then it's been kind of leveled off so we've curbed the increases but we really need to drive down the emissions and that will require more ambitious carbon pricing and or a more ambitious regulation and we are starting to see proposals for that. Okay bringing in all the parties here. I know that this is certainly something that you've touched on throughout this conversation. But i guess the question is when you look at the plans that all four of these parties have put forward. Are there sufficient details in there. For how these parties are going to reach their stated goals. i find the conservative plan. The least credible. Because there's that big loophole on what they're gonna do with carbon pricing for industry and various other proposals to support the oil and gas industry. So it's lease clear to me that they can Meet meet a thirty percent reduction. The liberals produced a plan in twenty twenty that was credible that it can achieve a thirty percent reduction largely through carbon pricing and since then including in the election they announced a bunch more proposals the net zero electricity in twenty thirty five phase out a gas powered vehicles the those five year targets for oil and gas. It's not clear to me that those are enough to get to a forty to forty five percent reduction but it goes beyond thirty percent for sure the end ep. I wish there was more detail on carbon pricing. They are somewhat more ambitious on electricity on elimination of fossil fuel subsidies in using that funding for spending. That's informed by environmental justice concerns. But the it seems like they're relying more heavily on sectoral regulation setting five-year targets for every sector. And what worries me about that is. It's slow regulation is slow because governments take a few years to develop each new new regulations. So i very skeptical that the mvp could achieve a fifty percent reduction in the greens is obviously a very important issue to the grades at central to many green voters. But they just haven't provided much detail yet in this election. I i will note. I believe their platform is coming out.

"The only thing the city part was he was the first viable candidate on a major party. Stage that's what gave the buzz. But he had no depth yet. Elizabeth warren and bernie sanders and and joe biden all three of whom are older than donald trump. The democratic party has a problem Starting in two thousand ten so much of the democratic party got swept out to sea even down to the state legislative level. They've never been able to rebuild as much of a bench as the republican party has because after two thousand ten the republicans turn making waves in state legislatures governors mansions in congressional races and in senate races. The republicans have built a deeper bench that the democrats have been able to do and so the democrats have got to move forward with whoever they have which is why they constantly are going. Outside of the major apparatus of the democratic party defied rich people and others to come in. Remember for a while there. it was. What's his name. bob idir from from from disney. They were flirting with him to see. Hey maybe be the democratic nominee. He'd be a reasonable centrist what. He's a pro-abortion liberal. They don't have a bitch. Barack obama made the democratic party all about himself than hillary clinton tried to remake it to be all about herself and the result is that they alienated and marginalized a lot of people who could have formed event for the democratic party and the chickens are starting to come home to roost. You've got joe biden and nobody can hold the party together after him show. Stop giving me the. Do you really think they're joe biden is going to move onto you. Really think he's going to subsided. They really want harrison. They're gonna put a roller roller skate. On the of the steps and job is gonna fall down and they'll be able to make commerce for no you don't understand the democrats know their parties about cargo. Nancy pelosi done after this term.

They know that. Joe biden an eighty year. Old who is more and more out of his mind is the only thing holding their party together.

"Eric i heard you on your podcast. The rhett with our other friend of the pod. Aaron wary this that the seinfeld election the election about nothing. I don't know if actually people are calling it. That i did but i think that's one of the issues for the liberals is that they did launch his campaign without a very clear reason for a lot of voters why it was necessary to reelect the government and what they need the kind of mandate they need from voters to move forward since they were able to more or less. Do what they wanted to do before. And i think that is something that we're seeing with. The liberal campaign said it doesn't seem as sharp as Maybe the conservatives or the new democrats and when you see what happened in in nova scotia in the provincial election there. Cbc is projecting a progressive conservative win here in nova scotia tonight and that is a massive upset in nova scotia politics. The liberals went into this election buoyed by strong pandemic performance but early on ian rankin momentum evaporated as the opposition came out hard. Pc leader. tim houston voters are going to re elected government just as a sign of appreciation for what they did over the last year and i think for the liberals were already hearing that. They're shifting a little bit. They're focused in terms of how they're going to prosecute the next couple of weeks maybe but Having a much clearer argument as to why it's really important to real the liberal government and not elect erno tool government. I think we're gonna have to hear more more more of that from justin trudeau. If we're gonna see the liberal numbers get a little bit better over the next couple of weeks okay. We talked to the liberals that conservatives But i wanna spend a little bit of time before we go talking about the mvp. Eric what can you tell us about the position in this election. So far what discerning it in much better spot than in two thousand nineteen at the beginning of the twenty nineteen camping. We're wondering if the end ep was going to manage official party status instead they're starting this campaign somewhere around nineteen twenty percent support. They seem to have some momentum going into the campaign that's a question of whether they're continuing that momentum over the first week but for the new democrats what's interesting about the focus that they've had it is about sending more in dp. Mp's to ottawa. To have that balance of power in the house of commons in a minority government and the. I wonder if you could just elaborate from young on who you think the end. Ep is appealing to here. And i guess potentially taking votes from in this election i young voters and women under thirty five to key demographics at the liberals are very worried about Young voters to help basically give justin tutors. Majority government in two thousand fifteen in women under thirty five who traditionally have voted for justin trudeau in the liberals now are favoring the new democrats in that has liberals quite worried agree with everything. Eric said about the ndp's strategy. Although you will hear jagmeet singh still say that. He's running to be prime minister but unlike twenty nineteen they actually have a lot more money and their plan to spend a lot more money during this election campaign to support the leader and to be able to kind of boost him if the campaign needs to be going well and that's something that they felt like they were unable to twenty nineteen when after the english language. Debate jagmeet. Singh seemed to be connecting with voters in a way that he had prior to the debates. But they didn't have any funds to kind of support him with an ad campaign on the air on social media. Do you know traditionally they wanna be the party that pushes the liberals to the left's like they're the actual progressive party. They would argue and they have a record to run on this time which is different than in the last few campaigns. They can point to things that they feel. They had a tangible impact and delivering for canadians. I think that does help them right. Can you give me an example of what he says. They've been able to push the liberal city. I think governing through the pandemic yep the well three things the wage subsidy. They say that they were the ones who i mean. Truthfully i think it was going to increase. Because of stakeholder engagement on that issue and the conservatives were also pushing them but they they argue they helped liberals boost that that they helped increase the serb by basically a thousand dollars to two thousand dollars. They helped bring in a sick leave. You'll know that when they were down and out or when they were struggling times are tough. New democrats fought. Thank you thank you you. Democrats fought to bring in more served to people so they can stay in their homes and put food on the table. We fought to increase the wage. Subsidy that keep millions of people in their jobs and they saw them on the sick-leave question probably more than anything else. Really hold that out as a carrot. Like if the liberals wanted their vote in order to survive than they had to agree to this And then liberals did push word with the provincial premiers. So that is that's not insignificant. I think for the mvp doesn't it helps voters on the left. Who feel like sometimes. We'll give up for the ep. Are you wasting your vote. Now then he democrats have a powerful argument to say you know your vote counts for something right. Okay guys thanks so much for this.

Northern Ireland assembly meets after sixth night of unrest
"Edition of the briefing with me. Andrew mueller last night for the sixth consecutive night northern ireland witnessed scenes of the kind of violence likely to prompt considerable agitation in observers with long enough memories. More than fifty. Five police officers are known to have been injured in the last week and considerable damage done to buildings and vehicles. The worst of the most recent disturbances occurred around one of these so-called peace walls which separate nationalist and loyalist communities in west belfast. The northern ireland assembly has been recalled for an emergency session at stormont today on joined with more on this by lord. Peter hain former secretary of state for northern ireland lord as you would know better than most people the good agreement did not end sectarian tension in northern ireland. There has been sporadic tension and violence over the decades since but measured against that scale. How bad is what we're seeing. Now was nothing like as you indicate the level of bombing and assassination and horror at the said. He has also troubles brought to northern ireland. Whistle the terrorism but It is serious and it needs to be addressed not just by northern ireland's leaders who displaying frankly a lack of leadership which is really disturbing but also by trade minister boris johnson and state for northern ireland who've been pretty absent from the scene in northern ireland now full quite a while and especially over this. What's your read of what's behind this because there is always the trap of reading significance which might not exist into what might just be a bunch of board young men looking for trouble. No this is that there are elements of that and they're a variety of other factors but the main problem has arisen over frustration amongst the unionist community the protestant community over the fact that there are checks and controls in for businesses doing trade. With great britain with england scotland or wales across the irish sea northern ireland of course is on an island with the republic of ireland to the cells and also within the united kingdom and within the united kingdom the rest of the united kingdom there are no barriers to trade of any kind between scotland. And or between wales and england for that matter scotland wales but they're on house result of brexit across the irish sea between england scotland and wales to northern ireland for the first time and that is the reason because the type of brexit that boris johnson. The prime minister pursued which was to break any real alignment with the european trade and customs arrangements and to go for at entirely separate of great britain but in order to make sure that the good friday peace process and the stability which has brought since ninety nine hundred was maintained. The irish border had to be kept open. Let's say the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland to itself as it has been now for decades and has become invisible with all sorts of human activity. Crossing it in their efforts not had the toxic role played a toxic role. Because it's been invisible it did in generations gone by and that's that's also the good if however that's it become the external frontier customs frontier of the european union. Then it could have ignited all those old problems that had beset and an bedeviled northern ireland. So instead what boris johnson agreed to was to keep the border open that men the northern ireland remained in the european union's customs union and it's trading markets but that's Inevitably because the united kingdom was leaving Great britain would be outside those arrangements so they have to be checks across the irish sea between northern ireland and great britain. of course. The prime minister denied this in his normal airy way At the beginning on the unionists and loyalists in particular who some of the most hardline involved feel betrayed. Because he didn't he wasn't straight with them way. Do you save in the causal connection between that dissatisfaction with the post brexit arrangements. And what we've seen in west belfast. Is it possible that there are people who are or were associated with loyalist paramilitarism. Who are leveraging that discontent to cause trouble. Yes there are and they're also criminals amongst them who drug. Traffic is and so on who've presented a police crackdown which has been quite effective in their communities to try and get rid of this drug trafficking problem and bought ignited. Not because of that so much though it's fit into it but also but primarily because suddenly loyalist protestant unionists suddenly found that Country what boris johnson told them. There are actually checks and controls strangling a lot of northern ireland businesses in a mountain of tape and naturally they see that as a break within the united kingdom because which puts northern ireland in a different place from say england scotland or wales and so they feel that their fundamental beliefs in the the union of the united kingdom northern ireland. Being within that is being threatened. And that is what ignites it. There was none of this until that issue suddenly arose around new year because the prime minister frankly say told a lot of porky's on us and didn't level with the unionist community and they suddenly found themselves in this predicament and had created Insecurity and understandable anxiety out of which these other factors criminality usa Vandalism and so on out of which that's fed you mentioned earlier a an absence of leadership both in northern ireland and in the united kingdom what would a constructive response from especially northern irish politicians. At this point look like presumably not like the one We saw her on twitter from arlene foster who went and it is a a term with which you will be familiar. Full water battery Suggesting that the violence will die quote. Take the focus off the real lawbreakers incheon. Fine that's probably not the most helpful into intercession. She could have made at this point. Is it well when you become first minister which is effective northern ireland as she is Although it's an unusual arrangement that she has joins us with the deputy minister. Michelle neil who's a shouldn't fain leader when you reach these positions you've got to speak for the whole of the community promises and president presidents naturally have their own party agendas to follow in their own party members to satisfy in any country in any democratic system. But you're trying to speak for the whole nation and that for the whole nation as well once you assume those positions and what has been disappointing about both of them and especially in recent days. Me aline fosters utterances. She's not adopted that role. She's effective acting as a party politician. A democratic unionist party rather than speaking for the whole of the the the the community across northern ireland and across the religious and political divides that have bedeviled for so many generations. And i think that's the kind of leadership we need. And we have gossips equally across the water London has been virtually silent on northern ireland. Now full rarely ever since David cameron and the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten under make this point on a on a party. Basis is a leave a politician and also it was labor secretary of state for northern ireland. A because it's traditionally been a nonpartisan issue between both the major parties. I make it. Because i'm genuinely an i've being hugely critical of the the absence of of number ten downing street of the prime minister in a way. That's attorney blend. Gordon brown were in vogue. John major's conservative prime minister before them. playing an honest broker role effectively. What they've done is said will not you know the the good friday process the peace settlement that i helped to negotiate in two thousand seven that brought the old enemies to share power together. That that's all done and dusted and therefore we can concentrate on the other pressures of government and that was fatal So we only seen a couple of sentences from the prime minister over the last few days when parts of belfast up in flames and a couple of tweets from the northern ireland secretary of state. Frankly that's not good enough. They should be convening all party. Talks in person to try and resolve these as labor shattered secretary. St louis hague has called for And they should be on the case all the time instead of effectively absence without leave as has been the case over northern ireland now sadly for a number of years lord haein. Thank you as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is markle's ailing goffin. With the days of the headlines. Thanks andrew in the serum institute.
"major party" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"Perhaps i think one of the differences eric. Breaky is which is a subtle one. I think goes to why. I'm a little bit more punchy. Online about this issue is for one. I don't i don't think the gop's answer all the libertarians. If the loser brigade out there he s those leftists. That liked to argue. What they've smith. And make fun of dave smith and attack i think the caucus people that the core the best part of libertarian movement. I think those people are encouraged him to join the democratic party. I think that's fine. I very much support a two point. Approach my issues. I think the lp itself is just a fundamentally useless organization. I think third party politics with the way the system that we have is a strategically bad approach period because we have a two party system like that that's the structure of the government. And we have now. There are changes that could be had. That would change that but at that point. Why if you're going to push for like one. And you see that i think was in some lp circles is that they make the issue the duopoly as if that's the core problem the american government. No the main core. The problem with american government is that we are an empire centralized authority with a full of people that unelected bureaucrats professional political class in dc to have far more impact and they've average few of your average american. That is the problem. And so if you're going to really take mesa wbap status quo like the problems not to parties. We could have six parties if and if it has the same culture that leads to the same things as a matter. Yeah and again. The display of arguments for like parliamentary systems ensure. Fine great but it cannot. It's no easier to change what we have now to a parliamentary system that is like succession or things like that i think. What the promo have the l. p. as a strategy is that i have like dave smith has done more for the lp and the l. p. has ever and i think we'll ever do for davison. I think that's clear when he goes on. Joe rogan when you have this entire network now. Particularly of alternate thanks than it is a massive win for liberty that those ron paul moments that i think we all spire to on the debate stage when ron paul was republican you get that every time you get a michael. Are you going to dig. Smith giving uncompromising intellectual fodder to the audience and the joe rogan temple. And all that. That's already happening. You don't need a party for that. The speaks right back to what we're discussing earlier. How you learned about libertarian ideas. Through a batman for them because forget forget part of the problem which does very well. It's it's probably one of the most listened to niece libertarian. Podcasts but david smith is a quarter million people a week on legion of skanks. And the fact that he's a successful comedian. Not a successful libertarian. Happens to do comedy. He is a successful comedian. That gets him in front of so many more people each and every week gets them on joe rogan and when people end up liking his comedy and letting him because of that. Now they're more open to hearing. What other ideas are the other way around. It doesn't work the other way around. Same thing is true tom. Tom was was rothbart. And kind of your early on in his career but it was his work with with a fascinating work on the catholic church in the history. There his work as a historian that helped pave the way for him having a much larger platform to introduce these ideas. This is all this is exactly. This is the most powerful in the fact that you're now having people like schneider and and some of these figures out is very exciting right. And i think that's exactly the sort of approach where again. You don't need a party for that like i don't. I don't think the party structure helps that these. The party structure is helped by these these sort of the professional career in the reach of someone. Like this that's why. I think they switzerland right on just about every single issue areas where i can think of any sort of disagreement. I questioned the party itself as a positive force out particular when you consider the fact that a lot of these localized campaigns that the caucus skin the beauty of the meese caucus which is the strength of the lp is affected understands the importance of level actions. Not trying you know they understand. The lp shouldn't try to act like a major party because it's not one ancelotti focus on the local issues on the decres and other aspects all. That's great big. What does the party at infrastructure actually helped their caucus by itself does more work than the party doesn't these areas. And so that's kind of where it's my. My view is a little bit perhaps stronger and perhaps less tolerant than my than some of the other Eric break does a great job of of reflecting the gop ra can. He's gotta take a quick time out to tell you about a great friend. Great patron of the show are manned. Zach over lauren. Zadie italy and our friends at law audie italy.

At lauren's id italy find them over at lauren's saudi dot coffee and use discount code lions for ten percents off your order. Not exactly where. I saw this twitter facebook out there. But you made a pretty good. You laid out a pretty good situation of how a third party like the libertarian party could actually be effective and it's not by trying to run a candidate everywhere and become the next republican or democrat party but by actually becoming you know by by well i'll let you lay it out but essentially by becoming a you know i'll let you take it from there. I why why some of your position when you can detail much better than i can. I i think one of the things. It's actually really interesting in american. Politics is the conservative party of new york. Which was something. That william h buckley started again. I've got the buckley but like there's some good things that are too and so what was interesting is the time. Where like the gop was changing philosophically. Kinda the goldwater era and things like that and so two. Gop was was becoming the conservative party. That can least rhetorically that ronald reagan. Whatever set the stage for the conservative party did it's operating philosophy was basically it understood that its role was essentially playing spoiler against the gop. And so the idea. Was that if you had a republican in new york that was governing by what they considered to be conservative values then the conservative party would not run a candidate endorsed republican if you had a moderate republican moderate even buckley standards. Then they would run a canopy then then they would run a candidate to try to vote and as a punishing aspect right. And i think this could be a very interesting mechanism if the l. p. wanted to be irrelevant pulo entity basically saying hey look. Gop shade hazel race in georgia right. Hey you blame me for the gop loss. Right layer.
Congress adopts $1.9 trillion stimulus package
"Will listen. I already love you. And now i just i want to kiss you and hug you and squeeze you over the covid relief bill because it really is as joe biden would say a b. Fd right. i mean it is the biggest progressive piece of legislation. Maybe ever right. Well they're saying maybe since the days of lyndon b johnson When so many of our fundamental bills were signed into into law but That's a long time ago on generations. Nerve law have passed. Since since then. And i so excited. And so proud and let your. He's only there in cresent for like a month and a half. I arkle yeah. That's operation warp speed. Yeah i mean honestly the number of vaccinations. Just the i think the amount of hope people are finally feeling. I mean and also just the contrast you said while the gop lear was reading dr seuss. Democrats passed a one point. Nine trillion dollar stimulus bill that will cut child poverty in half and deliver urgently-needed relief on it. Just it's sort of extraordinary that they that not one. Republican voted for a bill. That has you know a in a pandemic that killed five hundred. What twenty five thousand. Americans are more than that. I isn't it the politics over just completely eliminates me. I understand the only grace words. A partisan issue is in the congress. It sow because out in the world In our world The seventy five percent sometimes more in bowling. What this spill need this. Bill appreciated an. It's it's really a sea change in the interpretation of what government means. I think we have passed point. Were you know Government is the problem not the solution. People are looking to cover now and they're gonna get it. Joe biden said help is on the way. And it's it's coming. Yeah vote on this. It's going to be great. You'll think we're in the middle of watching well. My dad's party. I mean won a major party in america. Just commit suicide. I just i mean this. Bill has eighty three percent. I believe last poll. I saw public approval rating on. I mean they're they're hanging onto donald trump who helped them lose the white house the house and the senate who is actively telling people send money to me not to the republican party. I mean what do you make of. What's happened to your colleague here republican colleagues. How do they go home. And they say well yes. I voted against sending you that chuck. I voted against extending unemployment insurance. No your kids are not going to get that tax credit that's a alleviate poverty and we don't want to put food on your table and so we voted. No i i. i don't. I don't know what the you know. The message can possibly be well. As you tweeted representative he said as americans suffer and demand Relief and systemic change republicans across the country of united to suppress the boat. It's disgusting. We must pass the john. Lewis voting rights act. I keep saying. I only anything else matters unless we passed that because these bills are just. They dropped any pretense of voter fraud. They are just absolutely trying to stop. Cut the amount of people that can vote right cutting rolling voting to try to get away with vote by mail. Trying i mean i. I can't even keep up with all the techniques right georgia. They thought well you know that. Sunday voting where black people how souls to the polls that lets them vote. That brings out the vote mark. So let's just get rid of sunday voting. It's so blatant racism The is just shocking really. They don't care though they're shameless. they're totally shameless. Do what they think. They have to do to pick their own voters to limit people's right to vote. It's
Pence to speak to South Carolina conservatives in his first address since leaving office
"Mike Pence is set to give his first speech since leaving office. Former vice President Mike Pence is sent to travel to South Carolina for his first public comments since leaving office and they told The Associated Press that Pence will speak next month to the Palmetto Family Council, a conservative Christian nonprofit that plays a crucial role in South Carolina's presidential nominating process. Prince has not indicated if he plans a future run for office. But his choice of making his post administration debut in South Carolina helps set down a marker for a potential 2024 presidential bid. Candidates of both major parties typically focus on the state, introducing themselves and trying to secure
Senate Holds Longest Vote in History as Democrats Scramble To Save Relief Bill
"Was quite a bit of drama in the senate yesterday where democrats were sort of scrambling to make sure that they had the votes over unemployment benefits and what happened. I think shows right. The slim majority the democrats hold in the power of certain senators. Yeah i mean. Essentially democrats went to the floor and they didn't have the votes and that really rarely happens. Senator joe manchin of west virginia. He's a democrat was an entirely on board with the party's plan for these extended unemployment benefits and he was threatening to vote with republicans on a competing proposal. Dr rail the entire process for about twelve hours yesterday until they finally came up with deal to tweak unemployment benefits to shorten how long they're going to be available for about a month now a lot of republicans just as the benefits were too generous especially with the economy turning around and the mass availability of vaccines expected likely by early summer. The senate did make some significant changes to the version that the house passed. What were those. I think most notably they scrapped the house plan for a fifteen dollar federal minimum wage violated senate budget rules but also it just didn't have enough support among democrats in the senate to pass joe mansion and kirsten cinema arizona. Were both against it. They also tighten the income limits for those fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks and they'll start phasing out for folks making over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. They lowered the income threshold. The house bill was more generous and they also made those extended unemployment benefits less generous. They reduce the benefit from an additional four hundred dollars a week to three hundred dollars a week. And they're going to expire now just after labor day instead of the end of september. Do you want to know what the white house has signed off on all these changes that they don't have a problem with it and again. I think it's always important to remind people that the broader contours of this bill is. It's still two trillion dollars nearly in very popular democratic spending proposals. So it's also one of the largest standalone spending bills in history and i think democrats overall see. This is a pretty big victory. Those changes though do me in the house will have to vote again before this gets sent over to the white house for biden signature. When will that happen. it should happen next week. They wanna get this done and send it to president biden by march fourteenth because that's when current extended unemployment benefits expire. It should be able to pass the house leaders. There have been looped in on all these changes. They've been looped in with communications with the white house but there is some frustration among house democrats especially progressive democrats that the benefits in this bill. Were basically cut down because of other democrats new jersey congresswoman bonnie watson said that she was quote disgusted by some of her senate democratic colleagues. She questioned whether she could support the reworked version of the bill. I think that's important because house. Democrats have essentially no margin for error. They can only lose three votes on any party. Line vote and still have it passed so there could be some more drama next week Again bottom line from the democrats. I've talked to you. No one thinks the party itself is going to derail major-party legislation that the top priority for the president and also remember. This bill is hugely popular with the public in recent polling. It's not bipartisan in congress. But it is to voters. And that's a message. That biden has been pressing
"major party" Discussed on WIBC 93.1FM
"Ethan Manny that will require 5 45 100 signatures. Registered voters. That's 500 Progressive District for libertarians to get on the ballot, any sort of non major party that's on the ballot for governor and U S senator and join us on the line to talk about that is a good friend Tim McGuire, who's the chairman of libertarian part of Indiana. Tim. Thank you very much for being with us. Always appreciate talking to you, my friend. Good afternoon, Abdul. It's always a pleasure to talk to you, eh? So what do you What was your thoughts when you first heard about house Bill 11 34. Well, my first thoughts were. This was a unfairly targeting the Libertarian Party specifically, but any third party and, um, obviously, obviously my initial thoughts was well, this is our retribution or their retribution for doing so well in the last governor's race, That's interesting because I asked represented Manning about that, like, Hey, what's the whole point this legislation to just kind of get back in the materials for doing breath doing better than usual? And their candidate, gubernatorial candidate Donald Rainwater, coming in second place and a third of the counties and represent Manning said, No, this wasn't he'd been looking at the election code before. They just want to make it quote like fair and consistent across the board. Well, you know, that's interesting because hey says that, But then he the bill, he wrote, is not making a fair and equitable across the board because when it comes to getting onto the general election ballot, which is the only ballot that were on both parties have the same requirement. We certify who got the nomination and we submit that to the election division. What he's trying to change is our internal rules for who can get the nomination. The Republicans control how they do it, and that's fine. They can have whatever rules they want, but they want to change the rules for us on. Basically, they wanted to put it on par with getting into the primaries. There. There 4500 signature requirement is to get it. To get onto the primary. What representative Manning wants to do is give us the same requirement but not let us into the primaries at all. So he's actually making it more unfair than it was before. In addition, he's getting into our internal party politics of like how we do our own conventions. He's been putting no burden on the Republicans or Democrats for their convention candidates. Let me ask you to him. How easy difficult would it be for libertarians to get those four? 500 signatures 500 from the sister, of course, knowing that you have to get a lot more than that, because just the nature of how give granted garbage signature sends to work. Well, you know, it's funny. You ask because I didn't think that it would have been that hard. But apparently not even Todd Young can get that signature requirement. So apparently, it's harder than we all thought. Now. I see No regardless, though, um yeah. Can it can it be done? Absolutely. But is this a fair requirement to put on us when we already have Have so many rules written against us on We're already fighting it. Uphill battle. I mean, I think he's ah, flirting with equal equal rights. Um um Discrimination lawsuit. Our guests on the program is to McGuire Timothy, chairman of the Libertarian Party of Indiana, Talking about House Bill Every 34 that sponsored by Republican State lawmaker even Manning. That would basically could make it more difficult for libertarians to get on the ballot in the race for governor and U S senator right now, Libertarian just have a nominating convention, and that's how they get their candidates on the ballot in the General X because they don't have primaries. This would change that, to make them remember tends to get 4500 signatures. Statewide, and that's basically 500 from each district to get ballot access. Tim Right now, you folks only need 2% of the vote in the secretary of state's racing to maintain your ballot. Access I asked represent Manning about that said that wasn't changed. Just began the race for governor and U. S senator. Correct, correct. Yeah, so, but the problem becomes, is that he's putting the requirement, uh, on those races that did not exist before and he's not any essentially giving us nothing in return for that for that extra for that extra effort, And as I said before, we're already um, you know? At a disadvantage by being the outsider Third party We don't get Ah voice and how any of these rules are made on were you know in the rules are written differently for us when they are through the two parties. Now, I will say we have had some Good talks with representative nicely and he's gonna We're expecting him to introduce an amendment that that we actually will agree with. And if if the General Assembly's willing tol great his amendment or at his amendment to the bill, then we will accept the added burden in exchange for getting more of a voice on the, um On the election boards. What exactly is in that amendment, My friend could use to get to share that information or sure, so I haven't read it myself. So if you look excuse me on that, but essentially what it will give us. Ah, voice on the election boards on the state on the counties and in exchange for that will accept the traditional signature requirements. Because if we're gonna be basically these, adding this requirement to for our internal politics of how we elect our candidates, and we have to submit the kid Signatures to the to the election boards. We should at least have a representative on these election boards, Uh, toe, you know, not a controlling interest, but at least a voice on how this process works out Tim McGuire with us for a few more minutes on the program. Today, he is the chairman of the libertarian part of Indiana. Talk about a new requirement or proposed requirement to change essentially changing the state's election law. Other require Libertarian to get signatures to get on the ballot in the race for governor. And U S indisposed Right now they're nominating committee, Tim, But I can't talk about this earlier this week and one to get your thoughts on this. Why not Just use this as an opportunity? Because you're not talking about this before about libertarians and sort of their statewide organization like okay, fine. And these are the rules going to be forced to play by. We're going to get organized, going to get our get together. We're gonna have county coordinators, redistrict congressional coordinators the whole nine yards and come back with 45,000 signatures on the ballot. Well, I mean, that's a really great point Abdul and actually, That's something that we've already been working towards We, you know, we had great successes with Donald Rainwater. Last year on we've been building upon the momentum. In fact, we are in the process of affiliating 22 new counties this year Because of all the renewed interest, we're more than doubling or I think we're just about doubling our active counties This year. We're continuing to grow. And no, I mean are these are these, um Requirements. Impossible. Absolutely not on and that's why that's why we're willing to work with. Um we were hoping to work with representative Manning. But we're at this point working with representative nicely to say. All right. If this is the requirement, you know, it's fine. We'll accept it. But we we have to get something for our troubles because again They're so money As you know, Abdul. There's so many of the laws that were written against us. Make it harder for third parties, Toe have a voice. Um, just add one more thing onto that pile is is a little unfair. Unless you're going to give us something for it, My friend where you see just one final question. Where'd you see this? Legislation going? What do you folks are prepared to do to fight it? Well, honestly, if the if the amendment doesn't doesn't get added, the nicely amendment doesn't get passed, and then we are firmly against this proposal. We're asking all the representatives voted down and and if it does get passed, I mean, we will be prepared Teofilo this a civil rights violation there, basically trying to stifle the third of the voice of the third parties..
"major party" Discussed on 600 WREC
"25 till the top of the hour. Many of you being very patient today. Thank you so much. 809 41, Shawn, You want to be a part of the program? All right, let's go to Tammy's in West Virginia. Hey, Tammy, Glad you called Happy New Year. And thank you for being with us. Well, happy New Year and thank you very much for taking my call. I'll keep it short. I would like an answer clear answer as to why senators are paid for not doing their job. Many people had thousands of people have lost their jobs at the stroke of a pen from Biden's order. They're out of work. So why are the same people getting paid and not doing their job? If it had been you or me, not shop for work, not doing the job properly, We would be fired. So that's really all I wanted to say. I'd like to see make listen, Tammy, you're expressing exactly how any decent American feels right now. Um, you know, I don't know. I mean, maybe it's just my background and no one my parents background growing up pores They did. And my mom the prison guard, my dad waiting tables on weekends and I working my whole life and restaurants and construction, you know, leading up to this, you know, career on radio and TV. And struggling and you know, running out of money. I have $200 left in the bank. And what do I do? And how do I pay the rent? These people's lives have now been ripped apart. Fellow Americans like they're doing it so cavalierly and so callously and it's It's shocks me to my core. Because all I can think about is Oh, my God. How are these people going to pay their rent? How they gonna pay their mortgage? What's gonna happen in the car payment? They're gonna pay their insurance. It's It's not like they're going to go get a job on a windmill tomorrow, Tammy. I know. I know. I totally agree. I'd like to know who these senators are specifically drill down on their names every day, and how much their wages are is that it really is public knowledge. The average person trying to find a job trying to keep that job of work doesn't have the time to go online and search the stuff down. But if Radio talk shows drill down on who these people are. Well, I could tell you who the people are. The people are grand home and booted Judge and John Kerry and Joe Biden. Now the pushback has already been coming. From like the attorney general of Texas and these other states asses that relates to the border wall construction jobs that are gone and I am these jobs. Are not going to re appear any time soon, if at all, entire industries are being just wiped out, and for them, it's you know, Cavaliere, it's It's for the good. It's it's for green energy. It's for you know the environment. It's for climate change. Um, well, you know what? And then John Kerry flies on his own private jet to his beautiful mansion on the water and Nantucket. Save me the lectures, you know, live by example. We paid, you know, I bet you probably don't know, Tammy. I do know. You know that there is a fleet of private jets that you pay for. For all of these government officials and all of these Cabinet officials. Did you know that? I did. Actually, I was a private contract flight attendant for a number of years. Well, good for you. Yeah. So I mean, save me the lecture. You know if John Kerry sold his airplane or our scrap heap it Okay, I might listen, but he's not gonna do it. If everyone then Joe's cabinet pledge not to use the fleet of private jets we the taxpayers pay for, Um, you know, when they give up the creature comforts we give them um maybe we'll have just a scintilla. Of credibility. But even still, you don't rip away high paying career jobs with the stroke of a pen as Biden has been doing, or the New York Times says, Please, Joan, we know you know, maybe go a little easier on on this, you know, dictating. Ah, you know, executive order thing here. Um, in other words, by by executive Fiat. It's sad, Tammy. Let me tell you these Thies lives. We're not gonna hear from these people again. They have no place to go. They're going to try. And pick up the pieces and and and rebuild their lives. And they're going to probably take jobs that pay $20,000 a year. You know, just to get a rent payment paid. Terrible. It's awful. It's tens of thousands. Well, we're all on the same page and we have to keep fighting back here. That's one thing we can do. So having said that, thank you for everything that you do you do every day. And just keep on. Okay. Thank you. Tammy. And I want to help people as much as I can. I mean, we had this guy on the show the other day. I know. We put it up on our website Hannity dot com of people have any jobs available? Help him and he had to lay off about 100 guys, and just they worked directly under him. Steve, New Mexico. You're next high. How you doing there? Strong. Good afternoon to you guys. And once again thank you for all that you do come back in a state of crisis here in New Mexico. We are. We're in a state of crisis. Regards. I live in the northwest part of the Mexico Sean an end and jobs had been eliminated. All the gas no longer exist here. The price of natural gas has gone down. The price of oil has fluctuated someone. We see it now around $53 on the hood price, you know, but really, Shawn, we are suffering, and it's also the fact that we want to go to this new green deal. You want to be totally green by the year 2050 John Homeworld. We gonna power vehicles. How? Ruby, I'm gonna boil them. I'm gonna drive a pickup truck that I need to pull £14,000. You could tell me. I'm gonna put a pattern. No master run that. You know, we are in a state of basically of turmoil where we need to stand up and get our voice heard. And, like the young lady before canny, that mentioned is to stand up to our legislators, both at the state level and at the national level. We've had now. Democrat governor that we have an office now and she would like to basically remove all oil and gas exploration in state in the Mexico be done with and also we survive off of that of leases permits from the federal government Now Biden wants to say We can't do that anymore. We're gonna put that on a 90 day home. Bye bye, but But I'll tell you who is happy. Steve Cossio Cortez. You know, it's Ziff. We helped shape the platform. Here's the reality. Here is a simple truth is that Joe Biden, John Kerry people to judge Grand Home and the lap and all of these people? That just, you know, just dismiss career jobs, paying 100 grand a year from professional welders and pipe fitters and rig workers and oil drillers and people in gas and coal. Okay, and they chose their radical extreme. AOC endorsed Bernie Sanders endorsed radicalism over the jobs of we, the people. That's what happened here. Now we can have governors and we could have attorneys generals and they can bring lawsuits and they can fight in the judiciary. But this is what I tried to warn the country about way before the election. And it's not about Hannity was right. No, I I told everybody, this is the most. This is the most radical platform any major party ever ran on, and I kept telling people they mean it now the minute part is happening. Hacking the Supreme Court D. C. Statehood, raising taxes on everybody. You have the Commerce secretary nominee admitting such it's all happening, said back to our phones. Thanks, Steve. Appreciate it. Let's say hi to Leah's in Arizona. Haley, How are you? Glad you called? Yes. Good afternoon..

"To you every day. Hannity, his on 25 till the top of the hour. Many of you being very patient today. Thank you so much. 809 41 Shawn, You want to be a part of the program? Alright, let's go to Tammy's in West Virginia. Hey, Tammy, Glad you called Happy New Year. And thank you for being with us. Well, happy New Year and thank you very much for taking my call. I'll keep it short. I would like an answer a clear answer as to why senators are paid for not doing their job. Many people have. Thousands of people have lost their jobs at the stroke of a pen from Biden's order. They're out of work. So why are the same people getting paid and not doing their job? If it had been you or me, not shot for work, not doing the job properly, We would be fired. So that's really all I wanted to say. I'd like to see make listen, Tammy, you're expressing exactly how any decent American feels right now. Um, you know, I don't know. I mean, maybe it's just my background and no one my parents background growing up poor as they did. And my mom the prison guard, my dad waiting tables on weekends and I working my whole life and restaurants and construction, you know, leading up to this, You know, career and radio and TV. And struggling and you know, running out of money. I have $200 left in the bank. And what do I do? And how do I pay the rent? These people's lives have now been ripped apart. Fellow Americans like they're doing it so cavalierly and so callously and it's zshops me to my core. Because all I can think about is Oh, my God. How are these people going to pay their rent? How they gonna pay their mortgage? What's gonna happen in the car payment? How they're gonna pay their insurance. It's It's not like they're going to go get a job on a windmill tomorrow. Tammy. I know. I know. I totally agree. I'd like to know who these senators are specifically drill down on their names every day, and how much their wages are is that it really is public knowledge. Average person trying to find a job trying to keep that job of work doesn't have the time to go online and search this stuff down. But if radio talk shows drill down on who these people are, well, I could tell you who the people are. People are Grand Home and Buddha Judge and John Kerry and Joe Biden. Now the pushback has already been coming. From like the attorney general of Texas in these other states, Aziz that relates to the border wall construction jobs that are gone and I am these jobs. Are not going to re appear any time soon, if at all, entire industries are being just wiped out, and for them, it's you know, Cavaliere, it's It's for the good. It's it's for green energy. It's for you know the environment. It's for climate change. Um, well, you know what? And then John Kerry flies on his own private jet to his beautiful mansion on the water and Nantucket. Save me the lectures, you know, live by example. We paid, you know, I bet you probably don't know, Tammy. I do know. Do you know that there is a fleet of private jets? That you pay for. So all of these government officials and all of these Cabinet officials. Did you know that? I did? Actually, I was a private contract flight attendant for a number of years. Well, good for you. Yeah, but I mean, save me the lecture. You know if John Kerry sold his airplane or or scrap heap, did it Okay, I might listen, but he's not gonna do it. If everyone then Joe's Cabinet pledge not to use the fleet of private jets we the taxpayers pay for. You know, when they give up the creature comforts we give them. Um maybe love haven't just a scintilla of credibility. But even still, you don't rip away high paying career jobs. With the stroke of a pen as Biden has been doing, or the New York Times says, Please, Joan, We know you know, maybe go a little easier on on this, you know, dictating. Ah, you know, Executive order thing here. Um, in other words, by by executive Fiat. It's sad, Tammy. Let me tell you these Thies lives. We're not going to hear from these people again. They have no place to go. They're going to try. And pick up the pieces and rebuild their lives. And they're going to probably take jobs that pay $20,000 a year. You know, just to get a rent payment paid. Terrible. It's awful. It's tens of thousands. Well, we're all on the same page and we have to keep fighting back here. That's one thing we can do it. So having said that, thank you for everything that you do every day. And just keep on. Okay. Thank you. Tammy. And I want to help people as much as I can. I mean, we had this guy on the show the other day. I know. We put it up on our website Hannity dot com of people have any jobs available? Help him and he had to lay off about 100 guys, and just they worked directly under him. Steve, New Mexico. You're next high. How you doing there? Strong. Good afternoon to you guys. And once again thank you for all that you do in a state of crisis here in New Mexico, we are. We're in a state of crisis and regards I live in the northwest part of the Mexico Sean an end and jobs had been eliminated. All the gas no longer exist here. The price of natural gas has gone down. The price of oil has fluctuated someone. We see it now around $53 on the hood price, you know, but really, Shawn, we are suffering. And it's all for the fact that we want to go to this new green deal. We want to be totally green by the year. 2060. John. How the world we're gonna power vehicles. How rude, But I'm gonna boil them. I'm gonna drive a pickup truck that I need to pull £14,000. You could tell me. I'm gonna put a battery on that to run that You know, we are in a state of basically of turmoil where we need to stand up and get our voice heard.

"Friday. Erin called in just before we broke up the bottom of the hour, and he's been patiently standing by. So let me take his question before I move on on your own Kay away. NewsRadio what's on your mind? No, Aaron. Aaron, are you there? Oh, yeah. Mike, you maybe listen to the commercials. I got you. Okay, Well, we're on the way out. We're on the air now. So go right ahead. What's your come into question. I just want to say that from listening to your commentary, basically, I mean this country's been around over 20 years. And the Democrats and Republicans have have had monopoly of power in this country for that low and listen to you. It seems like it's loves his country exist. There's no way to break that triangle. Hold of that that monopoly power in this country. I happens in my lifetime. I don't know if it's gonna happen in your lifetime. But I hope it happens in my life. What do you think? Well, let me let me start with the definition of a monopoly in the sense of any economy. Ah, company has a monopoly. When they have complete control of an economic segment. Alright, alright, duopoly is when two companies have complete control of an economic segment. And they collude to serve their own purposes at the expense of the public. Unholy Grappelli is when several companies Mm. Share control of the market and also conspired to advance their interests at the expense of the public. The OPEC cartel, for example, is an example of a of a a non league happily, all right, so the Democrat and Republican Party can't possibly be a monopoly because their rivals they both want different things. Little guys. All right, So I think what you're saying is two parties dominate Yes, public policy, but they dominate public policy with completely different agendas, and it wasn't always the Republicans and the Democrats. It was the federalists and the anti federalists. There's a party called the Wigs that came along there was attempt by Ross Perot with his Reform party. But when all is said and done the structure of our government Is inclined to have two individual parties who differ. Mm hmm. Exchange power. Sometimes one party's in power. Sometimes another party is in power when a third party comes along, like the Republican Party, which didn't exist before 18 56. When the Republican Party came along as a third party. It lost the first election that Iran in but then the other major party faded away the wigs and it reverted to a two party system, with the Democrats and Republicans dominating now. Up until the last. I don't know 20 years or so. The Republicans and Democrats used to be able to compromise when Ronald Reagan was president. Remember, the Democrats had control of the House of Representatives for his entire eight years Reagan had control of the Senate or the Republicans did for six of his eight years then the Democrats won the Senate in his last two years. But even at the beginning, tip O'Neill was the speaker of the House. And and he and Reagan actually liked each other, although they were clear rivals, but they were able to work out compromises. What's happened? In the last 20 years is is that the parties aren't compromising anymore because the differences between the two parties are are so great and irreconcilable as as they are now give me an example of what would have been an obvious compromise early in the Trump administration. Uh, you know what? Doc is right? Yes. Okay. Deferred action for childhood arrivals. Dhaka is a program that allowed Children who were brought into this country by their parents illegally. It gave them legal status. But it was kind of a vague legal status because they weren't citizen, but they were regarded as being here legally. Now. Barack Obama wasn't able to get that passed through Congress, so he did it by executive order. And it stood. Well. When Donald Trump became president, he was willing and Mitch McConnell in the Senate was willing to compromise with the Democrats and go ahead and legislate Dhaka for the benefit of those kids, most of whom aren't kids anymore, But at one time they were But it was gonna be a compromise. The trade off was Trump would agree to sign legislation, and McConnell would agree that it would pass the Republican Senate to legalize these kids in exchange. For the Democrats agreeing To allocate $5 billion for Trump to build his border wall. Alright, Trump wanted one thing they wanted the other thing. They both oppose what the other guy wanted to the other side wanted, And that was the compromise. It was a fair compromise. And by the way, $5 billion for the border wall. Do you know how much money we spent already on covert and everything associated with it going to be in the trees? Yeah, it'll be about $5 Trillion when this next bill is passed. 5 $trillion trillion is 1000 billion, so $5 trillion is $5000 billion. Trump wanted $5 billion compared to $5000 billion the finishes border wall and in exchange, Republicans would go ahead and cut if I Doctor. But the Democrats flatly refused, especially Nancy Pelosi in the House simply because they didn't want Trump to be able to say he delivered on that campaign promise. It's a classic example of a failure to compromise based on obstinacy on and that's where we are today for the duration of the Trump presidency report. Democrats wouldn't give an inch on anything. No, nothing it is And I have one more thing before I go. What you thought about this past lesson wasn't any shenanigans. What do you mean? What do you honestly think about this past election with Trump invited? What? You think what happened in the states? Yeah, I've talked about that at length and I've written a couple of columns about it. Hmm, About go to complete colorado dot com.

"But it was kind of like To do list because the vice president went out, and when shaking hands with Bush pushed him back. He sighed repeatedly during, uh, while Bush was talking. It made Gore look like what he is. Which is the smarty pants. Karl Rove. I am so much better than you. I know much was so much more than you and I'm gonna mock you by huffy. Above all. There he goes again with another stupid It will answer the village idiot for Midland. I'm so smart. I'm so smart, And there's look Bush talking in ways that connect with the ordinary Americans. So first while Gore was doing damage to himself, But then he was doing damage to the 22 to the to his cause in the way that expressed that it there was the footage of him going. The message was this guy, you know, he thinks he's smart, and I remember thinking at the time Gore had done pretty well Juan Williams, and that it was clear that he was more conversant with The big topics, the kind of school reform issues the budget issues and the like. He just seemed very comfortable, maybe even to the point of confident and cocky up there. Um, but it seemed to me just covering the answers given by the candidates and their comportment that you would say Al Gore look pretty strong in the first presidential, but I thought he answered the questions. He showed how much better prepared he was to be president and Governor Bush Senator Joe Lieberman, but the media reaction Some of it expectations was that Governor Bush was actually better than the media, starting with the expected he would be, and they focused on these personal Behaviors about like that a side or are I don't know, I guess rolled his eyes a few times some things that were said that Jim Under my plan, I will put Medicare in a nine iron clad lockbox prevent the money from being used for anything other than Medicare. The governor has declined to endorse that idea. Even though Republicans as well as democratic leaders of Congress have endorsed it. I'd be interested in this see if he would this evening say that he would put Medicare in a lockbox. I don't think he will. The minute I walked into the spin room. I understood that the Bush people on this was very smart had turned the whole question of who won the debate. To these stylistic issues on That Dick Cheney had exactly the same experience, which is that in the our debate preparation, we were Preparing for a real attack. Counterattack debate is great, typical a vice presidential debates that Dick Cheney would attack or or me, and I had to be ready to respond, and I had attacks on Bush change ready to make so after the presidential debate. The posters for the campaign flew into Kentucky and said the public really didn't like the first presidential debate. Too much. Antagonists. Um So we strongly recommend to you don't attack Cheney and I was already with all I said, because he had some very I thought embarrassing both when he was in the House of Representatives Walk back. No way. Really. So we didn't America has Ah national strategic interest and principal interest in peace in the Middle East, and Al Gore has played a critical role in advancing that process. Over the last eight years, we made significant breakthroughs, I think at the end of the Bush administration because of the Gulf War, in effect, we had joined together with Arab allies and done enormous damage to the Iraqi army for Verses in Iraq at the time was the biggest military threat to Israel. By virtue of the end of the Cold War. The Soviets were no longer a factor that used to fish in troubled water. So whenever they had the opportunity, the Middle East but the end of the Soviet Union the implosion if you will of the empire that created A vacuum. If you will admit it easier for us to operate there. It was cerebral. And that's good. Uh, there's nothing more than having a civil cerebral issue oriented debate. Brad Blakeman. You know, I was proud of both of them. Uh, the way they comported themselves with the answer. You know, these are two statesmen. Uh, yeah, the political adversaries, But we need more people like these guys. And then later on, I learned that Matt Dowd, who was the Republican post to the year at exactly this conversation. Where Jenny and Dick had executives. In response, I did, which was you mean I can't attack or for this and that I mean, no. Well, the odd thing Wasp that the two of us were liberated to have a debate that I'm I will always be proud of, because we disagreed on a lot of things, but it was a very civil thought from the bank. The primary purpose of VP debate is to show America that the number two is ready to be number one. If, in fact that they should ever come and I don't think there's any doubt about it and looking either at Cheney or Lieberman that they're ready to assume the power of the presidency s O. That box was checked so that in effect, they both did their job on Dick Cheney, who went into that debate is the least popular of the four. People on the two major party tickets came out of it is the most popular Gore, as we have suggested, looked like he had an advantage. Coming in, Uh, hey, had not performed as well as people like me thought in that first debate.
Counting Briberies in Elections
"My name is nicholas vermont. I'm a second year student from your berlin and germany. Where i'm part of the research. Group makes in computational complexity led by professor. Well thank you so much for coming on the show. Could you tell us a little bit more about your phd work. What specific areas in complexity. Are you focused on. So i'm mostly working on questions. From the area of collective decision making and decision decision-making someone relative for different settings or scenario spare group of come together and have different than maybe conflicting opinions about assignments. And where we want to of find compromise alternative for not that makes everyone happy tour. Let's say fair extent and i am lies. Questions from this area from mostly yet stogie says complexity theoretical and algorithmic point of view. I'm aware that there are some aspects of multi agent systems that frame it in a game. Theoretic context may be decision theoretic approaches. Does that overlap. Or is that separate from your interest so we are not really doing mhm. Let's say close related to classical multi agent systems but. Interestingly kind of the work that i am doing this collective decision theory field. This summer became a sub field of mostly agent system. At least if you look at the conference with we published usually published multi agent system conferences and agents. System is are always Netflix which we have in mind. So a lot of these collective decision making scenarios also hidden in classically in some multi agent systems. Some of this as well highlighted in the main paper. I want to invite you on to discuss. Which is titled on the robustness of winners counting briberies in elections a lot of things to unpack there. I guess maybe this is the first time i ever had a bribery formalized a mathematical way. So could we start with that. How do we quantify bribery so when it comes to elections bribery is kind of a pretty natural and also white developments to problem and what we aim here for is the model that we have in mind is we have to get like and we have bribe who wants to achieve a second goal in the clintons election. It's usually win the election or preventing some from winning village. So this the golden that the bribery hasn't bribe knows kind of richly. And then we give the bribery typically a given budget. So let's say he's allowed to delete ten votes. And then the computational question that we have the mind is possible for the bribe's to pick like ten votes in the election smartly into delete them such that he achieved his goal for example making the candidate. It wouldn't be gotcha. So i'm you know we've just finished up an election my country here in the us. There was a republican and a democrat. Who were running an in many other people. If you very resource and could manipulate the elections may be you could have pulled it towards one of the two major party winners but if you had done enough manipulation third party One that would have been quite unprecedented by our country standards. How do we measure that distance. That i like. It's intuitively there. How can we quantify something like that. So this question. I told you about mind and you can also obviously ask for the minimum number of operations at the bribery needs. So if you have again election my goal and then the question is now how much budget to any any votes to to be able to enter to be able to delete to realize michael and if you do this for every can that separately you will like it for every candidate birth. I mean for the initially winning candidate. The number will be zero because he will have to change anything for all the other candidates. Have booby probably zero. Because i'm not initially winning and thereby also somehow discover ranking of the candidates. So this gives you a feeling for how far away someone is from winning or losing election with respect to the operations that you allowed so for example leading or acting or some to find the votes that well. Let's talk a little bit about the voting mechanics. Paper covers two different ways. That people might vote plurality and boorda voting could you go into how those systems operate and maybe in the context of those how this manipulation takes place so the two mechanisms we cover relative. Boorda both special case of so-called scoring based voting rolls. And the idea here in scoring based woods is that every voter is allowed to give points to candidates and in the candidate with the highest number of points wins the election and for example in property. I'm allowed to give one point my most preferred candidate so it's pretty simple. It's also typically how bellicosity simply mark your most preferred candidate in there but he gets a point from your vote. Border is a little bit more tricky by a border over. In the body election we tank the preference relation rankings albatross ranked the candidates s an input. And then we awards if we have any candidates are what n. Minus one points to the first candidates to the most preferred candidate in minus two points to the second most preferred candidate Three points the set must be for the end zone and as we accumulate the points even to the mall just by the candidates The candidate with the highest score simply winds
Biden's Climate Change Plans Could Face Serious Challenges In A Divided Congress
"Climate change is one of the top four crises president elect biden. Says he'll tackle. I but his ambitious plans could meet serious challenges if he faces a divided. Congress make an rod is part of npr's climate team and joins us now. Hi nathan nary biden's climate plans. Were the most aggressive ever put forth by a major party candidate. How much do they depend on. Congressional support Quite a bit to accomplish everything that he's pledging to do. Because yeah i mean as you said. He set some very ambitious goals though we should say they are goals that targets. That are very much in line. With what the scientific community has been saying for years that we need to do which is cut greenhouse gas emissions fast to avoid worst case climate scenarios. And that's what biden's plan would do. He wants to cut all carbon emissions from the electric sector by two thousand thirty five. He wants to make america. Carbon neutral p- not adding any greenhouse gas emissions to the planet by twenty fifty. And to do that would require massive changes and not just our electrical sector but industry transportation massive investments in new technology. And obviously. that's a lot easier to do financially politically lawsuit wise. If it's done with congressional support with congressional support you said so what happens if democrats control the house and republicans control the senate as looks likely. How much of this can you still get done. That's a good question. I think there are you know. Obviously there are parts of the republican party current present included who do not see climate. Change is as much of an issue but that is not universally true and You know remember. There's also this big and growing movement of businesses utilities cities states that are taking their own aggressive actions to reduce emissions themselves. So i've heard some environmental groups and also some more conservative folks. In recent days you know suggest that biden reach out and try to engage. Republicans on this issue scott siegel for example as a partner at the lobbying in law firm bracewell which represents some fossil fuel companies and. He says there is an appetite on both sides for technological advancement so better batteries. Hydrogen fuel carbon storage and. He thinks that's an opportunity. A lot of where we've seen. Bipartisan legislation in congress has married and innovation agenda to expansion frankly of regulatory authority so there might be the makings of a deal there and i think that A biden administration be well placed to try and pull that deal off and by that means you know. Biden has a history of working across the aisle and being in congress so that should help. So what if mitch mcconnell says not going to happen. What could biden accomplish with executive actions. He can still do quite a bit you know. He could roll back rollbacks. At the trump administration undertook on you know everything from methane emissions to clean water rules. He could use existing laws like the clean air act to direct agencies to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. That's what the obama administration did before you know maybe one of the easiest goals that he set for himself to accomplish just to make the us a big part of the global conversation about climate. Change again He can do that by rejoining the paris climate agreement which he says he's going to do and just by being a part of international talks. What are you going to be looking for between now january twentieth when he's inaugurated know i think it's gonna be really telling to see who he nominates to some of these key agencies that deal with environment and climate issues. He's being urged by more progressive parts of his party to not give leadership roles to people who have ties to fossil fuel companies That is something that no modern administration has done before. It's something that biden has not committed to But if he does go route or he nominates folks were viewed as more progressive to lead the epa or interior department That could be a signal of how ambitious you might try to be on climate action you know but also if republicans maintain a senate majority and they fight those nominations to nail. That could be telling of how much resistance. He's going to run into on his broader climate agenda as well. That's npr's nathan. Thanks nate thank

How Trump And Biden Differ On Energy Policy
"We are now just over a week away from election day although we know millions of people have already voted. But in these final few weeks, we've been focusing on some of the policy differences between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden differences that might not be so easy to discern when they're buried in the middle of campaign rhetoric or debate jobs. Right now, we're going to focus on one revealing moment during last Thursday's presidential debate when the two candidates talked about energy specifically, how should the US get and use power in the future have a transition from their own minister yes? Oh. It is a big statement because I would stop why would you do that because the oil industry pollutes significantly here so let's dig into that a bit more what other two candidates competing visions for us energy policy going forward and what are the implications per workers and the environment to help us sort this out. We've called Dino Grandoni he reports on all this for the Washington Post with us now Dino Grandoni. Thank you so much for talking with us your. Thank you for having me on. So let me just start if we can with that clip that we just played there is a divide and how these to view the future of. US Energy. So when it comes to oil, where does each one stand? Yes. So the two candidates have laid out starkly different visions for what they would like to do with the oil industry and how they would like to transition away from fossil fuels or whether or not. They would want to even do that You saw a Democratic candidate Biden pledge to move away from oil in favor of renewable energy and predicted that that kind of move will generate millions of jobs president trump by contrast says that doing that would be costly and hurt the economy and in particular would hurt the oil producing states where both men are competing for votes. Well. You've recently written that president trump has very recently tried to rebrand himself as an environmentalist which would seem like a difficult sell when his administration has rolled back countless environmental regulations over the past four years and he continues to push for oil coal and gas. So what's his pitch? Yeah, and this is a man who has spent much of his life trying to rebrand himself during various business ventures. So He Over the past year has changed his position and a few different things he has promised to fund restoration of the Great Lakes when in the past White House had proposed cutting money to do that similar story with the everglades in Florida and He is endorsed this idea planting a trillion trees around the world in order to suck carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. President trump is going to have a hard time convincing the public that he is a more environmentally friendly candidate than Joe Biden, release candidate who cares more GONNA do more to solve climate change. His administration has spent the past four years rolling back literally dozens of anti-pollution another environmental rules and that kind of reputations probably baked into the public. At this point president trump has attacked for vice president Joe Biden for what trump a radical climate plant and we do have to say this has been described as by far. The most aggressive climate and energy platform that this country has ever seen from a major party candidate. So could you just just as briefly as you can describe what are some of the key elements? So what Joe Biden wants to do is eliminate US contributions to climate change by the middle of the century and on the way they're doing. So he wants to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector in particular power plants by twenty, thirty five, both of those are very aggressive timelines and like you're saying more. Aggressive than anything any other major party candidate has ever put forward. It's in fact more aggressive in some ways than what Bernie Sanders was saying back in two thousand sixteen. So let me ask you this though how does Biden respond to the argument? That's would cost this have tremendous adverse economic impact especially in states that are necessary to for him to win I, mean, how does he respond to that cost the loss of just thousands upon thousands of jobs? Well, he says that his climate plan is also a jobs. Plan that transitioning away from fossil fuels will create millions of jobs in itself to have to install solar panels, built wind turbines. But then also all all the different sort of retrofits that his plan calls for to homes and businesses to make buildings more energy efficient. He really thinks of this as an economic plan in addition to being a plan to stop climate change or headed off at least. Well, we knew though that president trump in contrast president trump has always kind of focused on that economic impact of. This country is kind of reliance on fossil fuels and back in two thousand sixteen many people may remember he promised to reopen coal mines and to bring back coal mining jobs has that happened no that has not happened and we've seen trump talk less and less about coal in the first two state of the Union addresses. He gave he talked a lot about clean call and saving jobs but he dropped those references in the last two state of the Union addresses and we've seen coal fired power plants continue. To Shudder and call nine continue to close down during his presidency not because of any government policy. Really. But experts say it's because of economic pressure Kohl's just gotten to expensive relative to natural gas and renewable 's and what about oil I. The idea that a move away from fossil fuels from reliance on fossil fuels is increasingly popular with the public. I mean, the polls make that clear but apart from that are the economics driving oil to face a similar fate, a colleague of yours reported last month, for example. That British Petroleum VP has come out publicly and said it is shrinking it's oil and gas business and investing in wind and solar. So are sort of economic imperatives or whatever public policy imperatives regardless of what president trump sort of perspective on this are they driving in that direction anyway. So during the pandemic at least in the short term, the oil industry has been hit particularly hard as people driving fly less. There's a lot less demand for oil and that has caused a lot of oil companies to have to. Lay off people and even have to declare bankruptcy in this country that said, there are some experts who do think that oil is going to go the way of coal right now, electric vehicles. There aren't that many being used relative to the entire auto market in the United States, but there's this expectation that adoption of electric vehicles is going to pick up and that's going to really eat into the petroleum business because most of the petroleum in this country is used towards transportation field towards the gas tank in your car. That is Dino Grandoni. He is an energy and environmental policy report with the Washington. Post Dina Grandoni thank you so much for talking to us. Thank you for having me
What If Trump Refuses to Concede?
"Lawrence Douglas era professor of law at Amherst. College Massachusetts you write for The Guardian and you've published a book called Donald Trump will he go about whether the president would actually step down if he loses. Interestingly. The rhetoric we're hearing now is an knew he was working from the same script in two, thousand and sixty, I can promise and pledge. To all of my voters and supporters. And to all of the people of the United States. Then I will totally accept. The results of this, great and historic. Presidential election. If I win. The remaining. When you started worrying about what you're hearing? will extinct many Americans pretty gobsmacked by the last presidential debate that he conducted with Hillary Clinton. Chris Wallace said, will you accept the results? No matter. What do you make the same until you will absolutely sir that you will. Accept the result of this election and I think trump just kinda refused to admit I will look at it at the I'm not looking at anything now I look at it at the time, and then for swallowed pushed him a little harder in that and trump threatened the tourist the answer I will tell you at the time I'll keep you in suspense. I remember watching that in gang Wow that's an astonishing thing to hear the candidate of a major party say and I have to say at the time I also thought, wow, he's finished. You cannot. You cannot refuse to accept electoral results match just kind of attacking norms of constitutional democracy. So I kind of thought at the time that he was. His own coffin shot. A so much for my prognostications, but even when he won they theme continued from him didn't it guess it did in fact, right after his election I actually started writing as a contributing opinion writer to the garden in the very first piece I wrote was about his claim that he had in fact won the popular vote as well except for the fact that there were these three to five million phantom illegal voters he stated that before I think he stated his concerns of voter fraud and and People voting illegally during the campaign, and he continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have to him. Press Secretary Sean Spicer doubling down on the president's claim, but repeatedly unable to point to evidence that backs up the charge that has been debunked by Republicans and Democrats alike, and in this piece that route from the garden I really tried to ask what are the politics behind it claim like that I mean not only did he threaten dispute the outcome of the election if? He lost his disputing the outcome of an election that he want. But if in four years time, he trotted out a similar type of argument not to for the purposes of challenging his loss in the popular vote. But challenging his lost the Electoral College vote The damage this system should be hard to exaggerate. Okay. Say Things feel quite different this time because in the run up to this election, he basically got asked that same question again didn't he and he responded similarly you commit to making. Sure. That there's a peaceful transfer of power after the election going to have to see what happens. You know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster. We WanNa make sure the election is honest and I'm not sure that it can be i. don't I. Don't know that it can be on top of that. He's a lot to say about the workings of the election itself what is his argument and how much does it change now that he's the incumbent president Well. For one thing, he has spent the last three and a half years telling the American people that our electoral system is unreliable, which again is kind of unprecedented act in American history and what trump has done is he's kind of created this heads I win tails you lose situation in which the only way that the system can demonstrate its legitimacy is if he wins and if he loses well, that's simply becomes proof of what he's been saying all along. We having in yesterday's episode that Donald Trump is really hitting out at the postal system. And in particular state Sir automatically send out mail-in ballots voters. Why politically focusing on this issue There's a particular demographic that we need to pay attention to. These mail in ballots a recent poll indicated I. think that around twenty to twenty, five percent of. Trump's supporters intend to vote by mail in pallets that compares to about fifty five to sixty percent of Biden voters who are going to vote Mallon ballot. So we can see that trump is kinda tactically trying to discredit votes that are gonNA, break against him and very, very unfair to our country. If, they do this, our country will be a laughing stock all over the world because everyone knows it doesn't work how many ballots is sending in California's exit twenty, eight million or some massive number. Other states are sending out millions and millions of ballots I don't WanNa. See a crooked election. This election will be the most rigged election and history
The Trump 'clown-iverse' continues
"Another crazy waken US politics. Remember this. Now back they sure you. In fact, let people know Senator I'm not going to answer the question. Because the question. Just as radical left would you out Mason who is on your list? Not. Surprisingly, the media responds to the debate especially Donald Trump's plan rudeness it was overwhelmingly hostile wasn't it? Couple of days later, trump was diagnosed with code. After mixed messages about health trump got in a car and run around waving to supporters. Then he was released from hospital he returned to the White House and he went on one of those twitter rants among other things. He told the American people not covid even though he's doctor has said, he may not entirely be out of the woods yet. So, what does all this main awake after the debate and only weeks before the US presidential election and what does it mean for America's image in the world? For answers. Let's turn to a leading. American Common Taito a conservative who says he's quite sick of living in what he calls Donald Trump's clown verse or drama drivers over believers or I can't believe these guys actually the president. Verse. Brad. Stevens is a columnist with the New York. Times, and formally with the Wall Street Journal, where he won a Pulitzer Prize for opinion writing I should just warn you all that he comes to us via a scratchy on in Manhattan. Bread. Welcome back to the Shire. Back Be Sydney. Well, the rate is of the New York Times I can't wait to see the end of trump you yourself are prominent never trump you your New York Times columnist this week you say you was trump will give us just a few reasons why I wish a speedy recovery. I think to wish ill. To reduced to his level on that, of course, it's been. Core of the trump EST project which has been to based political norms and diminish moral standards. So why would I wanNA join trump along along that road a bit for more narrowly political reasons. I. Wish it well, because God forbid he were to die before the election, he would go down so to speak a undefeated. And what I hope is that a resounding electoral defeat in November and I'm speaking of the conservative. will put an end not only to the trump presidency, but she trumpism as a an ideological force. In American politics. Now. You rauch trump. The man needs to leave and lose because it's the only way the trump cult might die it unsubscribe to the cult trump obviously. Is that why you among that never trump was. Are exerting very little influence on the political right in America these days. You know I I hear that and. I was struck by the disconnect between my supposed- irrelevance and irrelevance might never trump fellow travelers. And the fact that the president. Describing us as human scum the conservative press keeps denouncing us if we're really quite so irrelevant, you think they want to go so much energy. Truth. Election that is probably going to turn on a small number of a relatively small number of voters in swing states, and so I think we're not quite so relevant have some people allege and stressed that never trump is include many prominent conservatives lock yourself William Kristol George Will Max Booed David. Brooks. David. From and Applebaum. Jennifer from there among others. But you see your critics would respond inside the Elat media consensus with there on the left or the never trump conservatives they've been consistently against trump wrought from that said. And Nights. I haven't you guys foul to understand what got America trump and indeed Britain brexit in the first place. You know. I'm not quite sure I agree with the analysis. Is and came about in part because there was unquestionably failure of the mainstream conservative establishment, which I guess I was park in recognizing some of the populous tides in American politics. I think it candidate for a much more specifically than which was a luxury crisis. In Europe, but went unchecked help create brexit brexit had knock on effects in the United States. As well, and and I would add a larger point com, which did you those who are listening here are left in any healthy democracy need a mortally healthy a conservative movement. There's no democracy that doesn't have a conservative side of politics. and. So even our adversaries are opponents politically should want us to succeed want a conservative movement that is optimistic that is inclusive that is in favor of growth, and that favors the open society and the free world. That's the way I can feel, okay my politics, they remained unchanged from the days before trump and hopefully will remain unchanged. Have said analysis requires us to listen attentively to individual voters tell us about your subject to Chris you right about her and you'll recent York Times call him. She's a registered Democrat and a trump voting lesbian store manager from Manhattan, and she fits none of the cultural demographic stereotypes of the trump by Brett tell us about Chris. Chris is a woman who is well educated. Well traveled and as you mention, she is She's gay and she the trump supporter and I one of the things that I I occasionally will be with my column in The New York Times. Is. Essentially. handed over not not fully. But at least partially handed over to Voice of that I think the predominantly liberal leadership of the Times. Need to could here because What she observed is that at least until the pandemic, her savings accounts or pension or private pension account for the United States a call four one ks. Arising smart. The economy was doing better in her view than it had been under Obama and that that's the counted for voters like her as opposed to you know questions about the president's mannerisms or read myths or his coarseness on the world stage and I wrote it Tom for the simple reason that Hillary Clinton would it become president? Her supporters hadn't been so convinced. That it was only a bunch of rednecks Yak. In the middle of the country, we're going to the trump. He is indeed and make the point. She's not an outlaw. She's a red voter in a blue state. My guest is Brit Stevens he's an award winning columnist with the New York Times. And we're talking about. Well, let's be frank. The crazy times in American politics. Let's turn to the debate bridge sixty years ago October nineteen sixty. The World Watch the Kenji Nixon debates we were too young. We went even. We weren't even born. To civilized will informed holly. Intelligent. Courteous Navy combat veterans are both in their forties. And yet six decades later. The world's being shocked and horrified. By the time of the first presidential debate these to all men engaging in A. An angry angry exchange is the best the both major parties can offer the American people sixty how's it come to these? You know when I was when my wife I ever watched, my wife has his permanent immigrants United States actually came a citizen. BECCA very. And I have to turn to her engine apologize for bringing her country because it was mortifying fortunately, the United States is a lot more than its leader. But debasement of politics has been long the making and it's one of many reasons why I just can't accept trump as president even though can time-to-time agreeing with his policies because he is he has brought the state about politics shoot a level that. Be chargeable to describe it as over Banana Republic and and you know onto. The Kennedy Nixon debates that I am are well enough to follow up one of the great issues that debate. The status of key Moi in Matsue, he's a little time with his island off the coast of mainland. Just unimaginable that piece to standard standard-bearers would have that kind of exchange although I. Walked by what Action Nowhere Chemo in that. So actually are. Yes you said that Donald Trump in that debate was channeling Alec Baldwin Channeling Donald Trump and yet he was holy himself. I get all that but is a more wrong with America than Donald, trump, Brad Stevens yet they're into lot more. You know I think Adam Smith Donald trump is a symptom of of some of that ruined but in seeking to an Australian audience I think it's worth remembering and reminding this audience that there could.

Trump gives speech at RNC
"Start with the Republican national convention which wrapped up last night, his all US elections, correspondent, toss, Lewis What I think what you made of the contents of his speech this kind of slightly choose your own adventure of the state that the United States in at the moment. That I think that we have seen for the first time real clarity. Of Message From Donald Trump I think that really cements the kind of tone we've seen from all of the speakers that have taken part in the Republican National Convention this week and I think that is now a message we are just seeing the beginning of beginning to unfold. We will see the messages of unrest in US cities especially, ones that are governed by Democrats that will be a message that we he'd be Hamid home and hammered home. Again, I would suggest over the months to come I. Think he was notable as a speech to, both because it was the first time, really a candidates for a major party used the White House effectively as a backdrop as a political property like to deliver a party political speech. there's a large crowd standing before him. They didn't seem to be sitting very far apart from each other and very few of them in the crowd seemed to be wearing masks a tall I think if we look back at the start of this year Joe, Biden's relatively curtails ability to campaign during the pandemic may have served him. Well, I think many will say that being in front of a crowd Donald Trump feels comfortable may well have served him. Well. Last night in terms of optics at the very least also seeing now, donald trump using Saudi change of tack in that he is going to quite some detail into his attacks on Joe, Biden I think that's a symbol that he is now own his advisors least are taking Joe Biden's lead in the national opinion polls pretty seriously and I think you will see much more nuance to those attacks although they'll be on the same theme. I think coming. Through over the next few months last time around, it was a a general generating of a negative atmosphere generally in the campaign, and then of course, the short hands, these nicknames for Hillary Clinton and his other opponents that seemed sort of stick. They haven't really stuck to Joe. Biden so far. So I think the fact was seeing a lot more detail now to donald trump's attacks on Joe Biden is quite interesting. It'll be interesting to see how Joe Biden. Now response to those and I do think it means that given the tone you know we're not clear on how far the appeal of the tone and the message that was given last night will be until election day but I do think it means that given that there is now a crystallized message for the Republicans that actually does kind of raise the stakes slightly for the presidential debate the beginning next month in both parties performances really will matter I think for voters. Who are now slowly as the image was too close waking up to the choices before them ahead of Election Day November
Trump paints optimistic American future at RNC finale
"With, crises brewing beyond the White House Gates Donald Trump stood on the south lawn last night to accept his party's nomination for president presenting himself as the last barrier protecting an American way life under siege from radical forces. Trump painted an optimistic vision of America's future including an eventual triumph over the corona virus pandemic that has killed more than one hundred and five thousand Americans left millions unemployed and rewritten the rules of society. But that brighter horizon could only be secured. Trump said if he defeated Joe Biden against whom he unleashed blistering attacks meant to raise the Democrat stubborn lead in the polls the democratic agenda he said is the most extreme set of proposals put forward by a major party nominee as trump's speech brought the scaled back Republican national convention to a close he risked inflaming a divided. Reeling from a series of calamities including the pandemic, a major hurricane slammed into the Gulf coast and nights of racial unrest and violence after Jacob. Blake. A black man was shot in the back by a white Wisconsin police officer an incumbent still trying to run as an insurgent trump's political playbook rarely includes Kohl's unity even in a time of national uncertainty, he has repeatedly if. Not always effectively trying to portray Biden who is considered a moderate Democrat as a tool of the radical left fringe forces. He falsely claims don't love their country. The Republicans claim the violence that has erupted in Kenosha and other American cities is to be blamed on democratic governors and Mas-. Vice. President Mike. Pence. On Wednesday said that Americans wouldn't be safe in Joe Biden's America. That drew a stern rebuke from his predecessor in the post the problem we have right now is that we are in Donald Trump's America said Biden in response. He views this as a political benefit to him. He's rooting for more violence not less. He is pouring gasoline on the fire. Both parties are watching with uncertainty the developments in Wisconsin and cities across the nation with Republicans leaning hard on support for law and order with no words offered for black victims of police violence while falsely claiming that Biden has not condemned the lawlessness along with Biden running mates, Kamala Harris offered counter programming for trump's primetime speech. She delivered a speech half a mile from the White House declaring Donald Trump doesn't understand the presidency. He thinks it's all about him. She said adding that. All of us, Donald Trump has failed at the most basic an important job of a president of the United States. He failed to protect the American people plain and simple for years ago trump declared in his acceptance speech that I alone can fix the nation's woes but he is found himself asking voters for another term amid a devastating pandemic crushing unemployment and real uncertainties about schools and businesses reopening without any federal guidance in

Takeaways from the Democratic National Convention
"One of presidential nominee gives a convention speech. The rial audience is not the crowd, but the audience at home. Last night, Democratic nominee Joe Biden had no crowd, so he looked at the camera and gave what felt like an intimate talk. Here and now I give you my word. If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I'll be an ally of the light, not the darkness. After the speech, Biden and his wife, Jill, walked outside to a fireworks display with convention attendees gathered in a socially distance way outside their cars in the parking lot, honking their horns and cheering. The first ever virtual Democratic National Convention opened with first lady Michelle Obama delivering a dark warning. If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me they can, and they will if we don't make a change in this election. Also during this convention, Joe Biden's wife, Dr Jill Biden, shared of personal endorsement. If we and trust this nation to Joe He will do for your family what he did for ours. Bring us together and make us whole. Kamala Harris made history as the first black and Asian American woman to be the vice presidential nominee on a major party ticket.
