We've never seen anything like it. But then again, we've never seen anything like this campaign. You're gonna have both candidates at precisely the same time answering questions from voters on two different networks. Uh, it's it's a strange circumstance. This was supposed to be the second debate. Of course. Donald Trump dropped out of the second debate when the debate commission said it would be virtual do tow the outbreak at the White House. Ah, and you know, we've we've had this on the books and shortly after that, and NBC suddenly surprised everybody. By saying that they were going to do the same thing. But with Donald Trump in exactly the same time what we expect to hear from each of the candidates Well, I expect in terms of Joe Biden to hear him face some questions that he simply haven't answered, Uh, you know, he's a very unusual campaign because of the pandemic. Joe Biden has not taken a lot of questions for questions from actual voters. He hasn't taken really a lot of questions from journalists amazed on on some, but there are a lot of basic things he hasn't answered. I mean, most famously. What? What does he think about? Expanding the Supreme Court. What's his actual position on that? But also where exactly is he on the green New deal? We saw him kind of take two different positions during the last debate. Uh, where, you know, how is he going to work with Republicans? Is he going to put much of a priority and working with Republicans, as suggested in his convention, and in terms of Donald Trump is how does he turn his campaign around? You know, he's He's trailing, he's trailing. I mean, look, he was trailing in the polls four years ago, so we don't really know how this will play out. But there is far more than the polling on the state level this time around, and he does not have a lead in a single one of the top 12 battleground states in the recent polls. How is life changed for

Older White Voters Helped Trump Win; Now They're Up For Grabs

"Republican voters against Trump is Webcasting testimonials from older Republicans, voters like Joseph in Florida who say they're switching to Biden. It's okay that we voted for Donald Trump in the first election. We now seen what he conduce and especially what he can't do pull suggest more seniors are feeling this way. So NPR reached out to a random group of older voters who cast ballots for Trump in 2016. Many told us they are deeply troubled by the president's behavior. Marty Stan, Go is 77 years old and lives near Jacksonville, Florida He's not exactly the most trustworthy individual. Nor, in fact, does he always tell the truth. I definitely will throw out things that are absolutely live. And here's Doris Harrington. She's 82 lives in Des Moines, Iowa. I don't wantto judge other people, but I really don't think it's character is great, you know? Moreover, they're not my morals. We heard this again and again. A lot of seniors who backed Trump four years ago say they're really tired of his tweets. They hate his use of profanity and many rate him poorly on his handling of the Corona virus. But NPR heard something else from these voters. A reminder just how hard it is Thies days toe actually change People's votes. Marty Stan, go in Florida who thinks Trump's a liar. He's not switching to Joe Biden right now, at least For Trump. Doris Harrington in Des Moines, agrees. For all her misgivings about Trump. She's actually enthusiastic about a second term Trump even though his character might be bad. He is Supporting religious freedom, religious rights right to life. The Democratic Party are not a lot of older Trump voters told NPR. They life Joe Biden, but they think his party has moved too far to the left. This is a voting bloc that's far more white and rural than the country as a whole. And many told NPR they're troubled by Democrats embrace of the Black lives matter Movement Robin Tunnel who's 64 lives in Midlothian, Texas. Told us she thinks Trump is unpresidential and a bully, but he shares her views on race. I just don't understand this kneeling for the flag. I think that that is just Horrible and he would never do that. Trump would never do that. NPR did find some older white trump voters who say his behaviour has caused them to waver. They're giving Biden a serious look. Michael Barbone, who's on the edge of this senior voting group at age 59 lives in Odessa, Florida today. I would vote for Donald Trump. But the strength of my confidence is waiting, so it could definitely change. Pollster Robert Griffin says the data doesn't suggest a huge shift among seniors who voted for Trump. But he thinks it's clear there is enough softening of support to put Trump's reelection at risk. The reality that had happened appears to be confirmed by a lot of different pollsters. That's really problematic for him. But the polling data and NPR's interviews suggest this is one key group of voters still in play, still reachable by both sides with just over two months to election Day.

But then he changed the spelling to see a R. I Which I guess. Kind of. Plagued Carey in her youth because everyone was always misspelling her name. You gotta be careful with that.

How Absentee Landowners Keep Farmers From Protecting Water And Soil

"Some of our biggest environmental problems like water, pollution and endangered wildlife caused by large scale farming, which means farmers are in a position to reduce environmental damage or at least mitigate it. Why don't they one reason? They often don't own much of the lands that they farm here's. NPR's Dan Charles Lisa Solti more loves nature. I reached her while she was visiting. The forests of northern Minnesota I can only describe it as healing. All the stress of our world, and said she just forget about it when you're in one of these beautiful old growth, for as she teaches ecology at Iowa State University, but when she moved to Iowa seventeen years ago, she struggled a little. She didn't have that same feeling standing in vast fields of corn. She wasn't hearing any birds or seeing many bugs all I can here are the leaves of the rustling corn around me and not one other. Biological Noise at all right. It's you know they call it the Green Desert and there is a lot of land like this this year. Corn and soybeans covered land. That's equal in size to all the East Coast States from New York to Georgia. But solti more says it doesn't have to be a green desert. She's been studying what she calls. Prairie Strips stretches of land, running through fields of corner soybeans. We're farmers of set-aside may be percent of the land for tall, stemmed grasses and wildflowers. It's a different world there. She says birds singing their bees buzzing. They were crickets chirping. There was stuff hopping around. These bits of prairie also protect soil and water capture carbon dioxide from the air. For this to happen. Though farmers have to be willing to give this land back to nature and many experts on farmland say it can make economic sense. One of them is Steve Brewer President of People's company in Des Moines Iowa who buys sells and manages farmland across the country. One of the first things that we do and we do this on every farm that we managed as we run, these profitability maps. His company creates a detailed map of the. The farm what they spend and what they earn on every acre, and they're finding consistently that some of that land loses money. It's amazing about ten to fifteen percent of all the acres in Iowa. aren't profitable. They're those hillsides with eroded soil spots where water collects in a big puddle after every rain. That is where they advise farmers to cut their losses may be bring back the prairie. Some farmers are doing this kinda thing most are not. And one reason the farm experts say is an under appreciated fact about America's farmland farmers only owned about half their land the rest of it. They rent year-by-year from a collection of landlords. Linda pro copy from Purdue University has studied those landowners. There are very diverse group of people much more diverse than farmers. Many are elderly retired farmers now renting the land to the next generation, some inherited it from grandparents. You have younger urban people who co owned a piece of land with cousins. Don't know anything about farming so when it comes to managing that Land Steve Brewer from People's company says it often plays out like this. Let's say somebody owns one hundred sixty acres. Thirty of those acres are lousy for growing crops, but they'll rent out. The whole thing is a landowner you want. Those thirty acres farmed because you're trying to get rental revenue on every acre that you can get, and the farmer will go along because he or she really wants one hundred thirty good acres. Sarah? Carlson longtime environmental advocate with the group. Practical farmers of Iowa gets annoyed by landowners who just want their rent check? We need to start calling landlord, slum lords and a lot of cases. They're just as guilty she says consider something else. Cover crops vegetation that farmers can plant in the off season to protect and enrich the soil. It's great for the environment and for your crops in the long run, but it costs money upfront, so tenant farmers who may not be there in the long run are reluctant to spend that money.

Absentee Landlords Interfere With Farmers Protecting Water, Soil

"Some of our biggest environmental problems like water, pollution and endangered wildlife caused by large scale farming, which means farmers are in a position to reduce environmental damage or at least mitigate it. Why don't they one reason? They often don't own much of the lands that they farm. Here's NPR's Dan Charles. Lisa Solti more loves nature I. Reached Her while she was visiting the forests of northern Minnesota I can only describe it as healing. All the stress of our world, and said she just forget about it when you're in one of these beautiful old growth for as she teaches ecology. At University, but when she moved to Iowa seventeen years ago, she struggled a little. She didn't have that same feeling standing in vast fields of corn. She wasn't hearing any birds or seeing many bugs all. I can here are the leaves of the rustling corn around me and not one other. Biological Noise at all right? It's you know they call it the green. Desert and there is a lot of land like this this year. Corn and soybeans covered land. That's equal in size to all the East Coast States from New York to Georgia. But solti more says it doesn't have to be a green desert. She's been studying what she calls. Prairie Strips stretches of land, running through fields of corner soybeans. We're farmers of set-aside may be percent of the land for tall, stemmed grasses and wildflowers. It's a different world there. She says birds singing their bees buzzing. They were crickets chirping. There was stuff hopping around. These bits of prairie also protect soil and water capture carbon dioxide from the air. For this to happen, though farmers have to be willing to give this land back to nature and many experts on farmland say it can make economic sense. One of them is Steve. Brewer President of People's company in Des Moines Iowa who buys sells and manages farmland across the country. One of the first things that we do and we do this on every farm that we managed as we run, these profitability maps. His company creates a detailed map of the. The farm what they spend and what they earn on every acre, and they're finding consistently that some of that land loses money. It's amazing about ten to fifteen percent of all the acres in Iowa aren't profitable. They're those hillsides with eroded soil spots where water collects in a big puddle after every rain. That is where they advise farmers to cut their losses may be bring back the prairie. Some farmers are doing this Kinda. Thing most are not. And one reason the farm experts say is an under appreciated fact about America's farmland farmers only owned about half their land the rest of it. They rent year-by-year from a collection of landlords. Linda pro copy from Purdue University has studied those landowners. There are very diverse group of people much more diverse than farmers. Many are elderly retired farmers now renting the land to the next generation, some inherited it from grandparents. You have younger urban people who co owned a piece of land with. Don't know anything about farming so when it comes to managing that Land Steve. Brewer from People's company says it often plays out like this. Let's say somebody owns one hundred sixty acres. Thirty of those acres are lousy for growing crops, but they'll rent out. The whole thing is a landowner you want. Those thirty acres farmed because you're trying to get rental revenue on every acre that you can get, and the farmer will go along because he or she really wants one hundred thirty good acres. Sarah Carlson longtime environmental advocate with the group practical farmers of Iowa gets annoyed by landowners who just want their rent check? We need to start calling landlord, slum lords and a lot of cases. They're just as guilty she says consider something else. Cover crops vegetation that farmers can plant in the season to protect and enrich the soil. It's great for the environment and for your crops in the long run, but it costs money upfront, so tenant farmers who may not be there in the long run are reluctant to spend that money. Carson says some landlords do care enough that they'll spend the money to protect the Environment Bill. Does prairie strips pay for cover crops? But they're the exceptions I mean. Even my mom wasn't that kind of landlord and I'm her daughter like I'm like. What do you mean we're not going to do? Cover crops was wrong with you Steve, brewer? Land Brooker says he does see signs of things are changing. There's a new kind of landowner showing up people who didn't inherit the farmland, but decided to buy it. Some of them because they care about how foods produced and the environment, others are purely investors for them. The land is a financial asset, but they understand that this asset can't increase in value if they protected. Dan Charles NPR

Hands-on curriculum teaches kids about mosquitoes

"For many people mosquitoes aren't just a nuisance. But for some young people in des, Moines Iowa. They've also become a source of fascination. They think a lot about well. What happens if this mosquito larva is in cold water, or if it's in really hot water, or what happens if this adult female mosquito can't find a shady spot to rest in, it's awesome. What kinds of questions emerge lyric? Bartholomeo is an entomologist at the University of Wisconsin Madison. In two, thousand sixteen. She began working with Catherine Bruna of Iowa State University to create a hands on curriculum about mosquito, biology and public health. They've used it in a summer camp an after school program. They even crafted lessons for us at home during the covid nineteen pandemic. The lesson spark kids, curiosity and get them thinking about topics such as how global warming effects, mosquitoes and spread of diseases such as the and malaria. The next generation of kids that are coming up are going to be the ones that are forced to face climate change really had on. So she says by encouraging kids critical thinking skills there, helping nurture tomorrow, scientists and problem solvers.

The Evansdale Murders

"Longtime listeners of this fine program. We'll know that one of the tactics I would certainly use in any of these investigations is what I like to call the old pervert roundup and that is exactly what law enforcement did. Investigators tracked down approximately ten registered sex offenders living in Evansdale and all were cleared by police but according to CNN there were two hundred registered sex offenders in a ten mile radius is scary stuff now the town of Waterloo has did. He make sure that there wasn't a prison I I did. The town of Waterloo has one registered sex offender for every two hundred and thirty six residents for comparison purposes. Evansdale has a registered sex offender for every four hundred and eighty four residents over all the DCI says. It looked into over three hundred sex offenders to date throughout the investigation. Investigators had a hard time figuring out. Exactly how the girls were abducted. Where the bikes were left was quite far from their house and was not in an area. Cars could travel further. The girl sense had seem to lead into the woods. How a Predator or predators managed to get control of two girls silently and sight unseen in broad daylight. But we've we've talked about this many times normally. I'M GONNA guess that it's by threat of violence. I show you a gun. I show you a knife. You're a little kid is not gonna be that hard for me to You know most little kids are not going to think. Hey I could take off running right now or maybe I can scream or I could do something. You're going to see that gun and once that threat is made now that perpetrators in control. Yeah and what you have to wonder about two is do you take that a step further and say were they lured to a vehicle perhaps by someone they knew and trusted and there was no reason for them to scream and run away right. That's your second option. The other thought to had they been grab from another location. Perhaps a long road alongside a road. Which would make sense. And then the bikes left by their doctor on the trail and the dogs are just mistaken or confused while we talked about this a little off the record was the idea that what if the perpetrator had a truck or had A truck with maybe a cap on it where he got the girls got control the girls there now in his vehicle a he has the their bikes but now he's afraid that once he takes off that maybe somebody sees the bikes in the back of his truck. Here's the other thing to consider as well staying along the idea that it was a stranger abduction. Could we have a situation where they were somewhat targeted meaning? Had someone been watching the two girls as we said? This bike ride was pretty routine. They were out riding together often and I would imagine it would be roughly about the same time of day so somebody put together a carefully planned attack a snatch and grab of these two girls especially if they were following him and then followed them all the way to the lake that might have presented the opportunity. The perpetrator was looking for there. Were a rash of child. Abduction attempts throughout Iowa in two thousand twelve the following reports appeared in various media publications. And I'll kind of go through these one at a time. Captain you just kind of jump in where you see fit may nineteenth two thousand twelve th authorities say they were looking for a man suspected in the attempted abduction of three girls on the west side of Perry Iowa. Perry police say the man stopped his car about eight. Pm Friday and asked the Girls Ages. Eight and nine for directions to a convenience store he then tried to get the girls into the car asking for them to show him the way. Show him the directions. Police say the girls ran to a neighbor's house thankfully on June sixth of that same year. Metro police are teaming up with following a string of attempted child abductions in the Des Moines Iowa area. No this is like one hundred and twenty five miles away from Evansdale but I wanna go through some of these as we as we can hear the most recent of these attempts happened in Pleasant Hill on May twenty third of that year. Police say a man in A. Suv tried to lure a young girl into his vehicle in the same article. They're talking about walkie. Police were investigating an incident. That happened around the same date. There were two girls. They say they were followed by an SUV. In June parents and four city Iowa were notified of two abduction attempts and one of them. The driver of a Tan panel work style van stopped three children on bicycles on North Eighth Street and told them he was going to get them. The children ran away and the driver drove off. Seems like we need another stranger danger campaign through this country. I mean with all these creeps and all these pieces of shit to teach these kids one. Stay away run away. Run to the nearest house yell for help. Well what I find interesting in these situations is when you do have some a child or children who actually go missing and then the thought is abduction. You'll see these little stories in the newspapers in the local newspapers and they are just that they are little tiny stories because they don't know much about the offender they don't really fully know what the offender was attempting to do the actual crimes. They were attempting to carry ow. But it's scary stuff and they're really just delivering a little short warning to the community and to the parents in the area. What happens once you have a child who actually goes missing these stories all start to cycle back through the news because now you have people making connections and you're going alright. There's a shark in the water and he's over here swimming around in this area and look try to get somebody here and try to get somebody there In the same article captain there are going all the way back to march of that year. Where say the Police Department investigated a possible attempt to abduct a ten year? Old Boy. The boy who was in front of his home said he was approached by an Asian male roximately fifty years old with a thin face. The suspect was driving an older grey van possibly with I'll license plates. The man reportedly tried to lure the boy into his van after asking for directions to a church whether these attempts could have been the same person who took Elizabeth and lyric is almost certainly something that police in evansdale would have been. Considering at the time on the four month anniversary of the disappearance a letter appeared in the newspaper and it read to whom it may concern. We would use your name but we don't know who you are or maybe we do. Maybe you are someone who knows the girls. Maybe you're someone who just acted upon impulse. Maybe you had planned to take them. We don't know because we don't know who you are but we can sort of imagine that you must not have had the things you needed to grow up feeling safe and loved because only someone who hurts inside would hurt another person in their family. We've all heard the saying hurt. People hurt people. We believe this to be true. We are so sorry for what happened to you when you were growing up. Certainly all children do not receive all the love and care they deserve. Some are even abused by those who are supposed to have taken care of them. When that happens it is very wrong. Taking the girls from us has caused much pain pain for them pain for us and our families since the time you took them. Maybe you've wondered more than a few times how you could ever make it right how to be a hero. Not a monster. Things probably look pretty hopeless for a good outcome. We want you to know that we are praying for you to do the right thing by releasing the girls everyone wins even you the person who took them imagine how it will feel to? Have everyone remember that you were the one person and all the missing children cases the one person who cared enough to let the girls go you will not be remembered as the one who took the girls but as the one who let them come home? Our lives have not been the same since July thirteenth. Please let our girls come home to us. Do the right thing be a hero sincerely and signed by both of the families Wa- and then we're going to learn that that's not an option anymore to return the girls because the girls would be found. Yeah this takes place. On December fifth of that same year two thousand and twelve the family. They get the phone call that they were really hoping not to get. The family was told that two bodies had been found and at that time they believe them to be. The girl's three hunters found two small corpses in seven bridges. Wildlife Park and brimmer county north of Evansdale. This was a totally off the grid. One hundred sixty six acre wildlife area about twenty two miles from Myers Lake twenty two miles from where the bikes were found The area was not one that someone would just stumble upon. It was frequented mostly by hunters. Atv riders fishermen. You know outdoor people. This was a the type of park that you just take your kids for a hike and this was you said more for hunters and fishermen. Atv riders into kind of clue. Everybody in that's not from that area. When I see these types of statements it really really puts it into perspective for me. What kind of place? What kind of area we're talking about. This is also an area where people would drive and dump appliances. You know how you see. Things that are just dumped that are unwanted wanted. They have no other idea of how to get rid of them right. They just dump these appliances out in the middle of nowhere so and this is also a place that pretty much only the locals dough about you want to know about it. If you weren't from the area I mean you could find it on a map. But as I said it's it's very much like you just described it's only going to be frequented by people that are specifically intending to go to that area for the purpose of hunting or fishing

Opening Act - Rumors in Rock

"First false rumor. Did you ever hear the rumor about Keith? Moon driving a Rolls Royce into a hotel pool. I've heard a lot of stories about Keith. Moon well. He is the quintessential rock and roll guy and bad boy he definitely collected Nazi memorabilia. He may have bitten. Steve McQueen's Hog and blew up his drums win. The WHO played on the smothers brothers. Comedy Hour. I cannot wait to do his episode I am. I have like four books based on. Keith Moon I am. I am locked and loaded. I Love Keith. He is my soul. Well so those things may be true however there was a rumor that he drove a Rolls Royce into a pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint Michigan on his twenty. First Birthday. This is not true. According to Pete Townsend. The story is actually a combination of two different stories. That has become one not true rumor. So Keith Moon. In one of the stories like one of the incidents he left the Hamburg off of a car and it rolled into a pool which was under construction and to not have any water in hit home. Which would be worse though driving? Dr Into a pool with water or driving a car into a pool without water but he didn't drive the car into that. I'm just like either one either or I'm just saying like it just rolled in on its own. Which would do more damage I think you're pretty much screwed either way fair enough. The cars a loss of it goes near the pool. Yeah Okay and then so the second story that this was combined with to create the not true drove. Rolls Royce. Into a pool was that he charged new car to the band. Who refuse to pay for it. So Moon drove it into a muddy pond in his garden and call the dealer to come pick it up. So it's too true. Stories rolled into one story right. That's not true. Yeah Oh yeah. It's incredible and that's not our last Keith. Moon rumor either. Nope our next one which is true now okay. I should say with the caveat that these are true and false based on articles that we both read and so there might be room for error. So this is just like fun. Yeah it's just fun and it's inauguration. It's yeah just what we found. No one has photographic evidence. It's just fun fun so I hope you guys out. Don't get angry and you're like that never happened or that did happen bub-bubba so like don't don't get mad at us is just this is just meant to be fun and a little bit looser so and just for us to kind of talk off the cuff so Our next one. Which is true. Is All about Ozzy Osbourne. Oh my so ozzy. Osbourne achieved infamy overnight after incident on January twentieth nineteen eighty two in Des Moines Iowa during the height of his drug problem. That is putting it mildly. Ozzy Osbourne was performing when an audience member through a bat on stage. The singer believing that it was rubber and I do believe that he thought it was robbery. I don't think he would have. I believe that too. Yeah bid off its head as a stunt only to find out that the bat was real and alive not only that but as he declares in liner notes to the two thousand two reissue of diary of a madman. The Bat wound up biting him as well which forced him to be treated for rabies. The incident fed his rock madman legend along with the one time that he bit off the head of a dove which basically what happened was when he first met with Columbia records in Nineteen ninety-one. He took a live dub into the meeting with him and bit off the head in front of the horrified executives. Awful yeah so crazy man out. I wouldn't sign him to a record deal yeah. He was also arrested for urinating on. Or near the Alamo. And while on tour with Motley crue he allegedly got into a one upmanship. Dare contest with Nikki. Nikki six and I'm sorry that is at is a contest. I would never even get close to know but he ended up snorting a line of ants better than biting the heads off live animals. I think though no okay. The dove thing is kind of unforgivable. The bad thing is understandable. But you snorted a line of ants would if they were fire ants also. You just have ants in your sinuses now. I'm sad I read that. Oh my God you have to elaborate immediately regretted it I apologize. You should move on move on Thanksgiving on next all right. Here's a good one Kay cass. Elliot choke to death on a ham sandwich. Can We bury this now? Please yeah really not cool. I don't like this lie at all. This rumors terrible are you. Doing Mama Cass. Yes I am all right so this came up. Following a series of sold out gigs. In London Mama Cass retired to her apartment where she died of heart failure on July. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Seventy Four. A rumor spread very quickly that she died from choking on a ham sandwich which is just a horrible thing to say you know yes. She was a little overweight route. So it's believed that the rumor started when Dr Anthony. Greenberg the physician who I examined CASS. After her death wrote she appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking coca cola while lying down a very dangerous thing to do. She seemed to have choked on her ham sandwich. So so great job Dr Greenberg for that one. But point of fact her autopsy showed that a heart problem leading to heart. Failure was the cause of death not a sandwich or any other item lodged in her throat or trachea. She had actually had very little to eat the day before she died like her stomach was pretty clear. No dead I'm actually going to piggyback and double down on a Mama Cass and Keith Moon. True story with us. They were not but they did die in the same apartment. Yeah rockstars have been taken from US. Way Too young and it just so happens that two brilliant musicians died in the same apartment at the same age of thirty two Singer Harry Nilsson I love. That's my alarm. Every morning I wake up to his song. GotTa get out okay. If you've seen the show Russian dolls you'll know why I wake up to a song every day but He renounced his London flat to friends when he was traveling. And so on June twenty ninth nineteen seventy four Mama Cass of the Mamas. And the Papas was staying in the flat while she was on tour and died of heart failure in her sleep and on September seventh. Nineteen seventy eight Keith. Moon of the WHO overdosed on a sedative in that very same apartment which is eerie because they died in the same apartment under the same landlord at the same age. How crazy is that? That's a little

"Moines Iowa the last election was so bored I don't know maybe the most important ever but it was so important I really believe that this election may be in its own way will be just as important rob Crilly meanwhile White House correspondent at the Washington examiner says it was a deliberate piece of scheduling by the trump twenty twenty campaign rob what's up here as we know there is a master of public security and dominate saying at time so the campaign is weapon icing his Riley appearances to in a number of ways in the one that was saying at the moment is that justice the democratic primary race which is a crucial stages we got a ramping up but the time that the trump campaign I'm we have Riley's now that are I wrecked the time by design the conflict on the TV set yours with that the democratic debates so we have a situation that I've spoken to a number of come come pain inside that you cited by much the aims and that the like how well it's working but the aim is very much to dominate the headlines prevent people talking about the democratic candidates night so battleground states will be the focus I would imagine in the coming months yes Sir we we see trump in a in Ohio Pennsylvania Wisconsin it's very clear which of the states that president trump needs to win one prediction that was made to me a while ago by a veteran of the twenty sixteen campaign that we could even see president Tom running some rallies in the early primary states unit could could we see trump up in New Hampshire and IRA I was very is that think about that you may come across it candidate so it's a real I'm not hold us approach to security getting up in the growth of the democratic candidates hi so is it a two pronged approach or strategy here in that the trump campaign is trying to prevent a break out Democrat front runner while also just generating publicity or is that what it says I mean number one these Roddy's occurred for trump and pay for the night the in a way that allows them to collect state so all people going to the rally to the idea of sending supports his first opponent the pages and then into volunteer search so the Riley says they're reading first but what we have at the moment with these rallies and then you combine it with all the headlines and all the forty attention is being given to impeachment and CEO Ron crisis last week he just simply thank half the column inches or the space to be discussing at length the the pros and cons of the the different democratic candidate six campaign insiders really believe that this strategy has resulted in the fact that we have so many candidates in this race for the nomination we have a nice clear font Lana you have to bite and the war and the song the churches of all along very similar police officers being very difficult that the trump support suspect for any one of these candidates to capture the public imagination Wall president trump is still dominating the headlines speak with rob Crilly White House correspondent at the Washington examiner his pieces called trump rallies designed to divert attention from Democrats and prevent front runner break out you know I thought well geez would make sense per residents to hold rallies in battleground states and also in early primary states but then I thought you know not every past president could pull that off though he's got that ability to draw without structure I mean I mean have you seen presidential rallies like this before that or a mix of sort of standout re change we get some some song and dance routines or mice parties about the politicians and it becomes a van the the family one state so I'm always struck by the the age range in the type of people that come to the defense ministry this occurred very different to the sorts of people who will be sitting down Sir what's the democratic right now I mean not driving on party lines are not so obvious but in terms of background of ages and and and I will level living trust in him in politics I think the other thing to say the incumbent to this stage in the cycle of often about that best bet is to make getting on with the show in that very much focused on the job at hand I'm trying to deliver policy results this presidency it is rather different yet in the critics would say struggled to deliver results hello but what is an invalid if the pain is really turned out campaigning at a much earlier stage of the cycle and we've seen from previous president thanks rob that is rob Crilly when else correspondent at the Washington examiner nineteen minutes now in front of the hour on.

"In mid January in des Moines Iowa for perspective on I like stone ABC news at Loyola Marymount university in LA couple of weeks ago we reported on the resignation of Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson and the uncertainty surrounding that city's crime and law enforcement this week we're gonna focus on another American city where crime in twenty nineteen is on the rise Baltimore it's got a long time ABC news affiliate their W. B. A. L. I've talked with reporter bill yucca bus what is going on in the city of Baltimore can you explain to us yeah we're probably going to have about three hundred twenty homicides this year so far and that's a big number only because it's it's happened almost all of the years in the recent past and it's something that the city has had really a difficult time getting under control one of the things that the biggest problem here seems to be as consistent so you know we have four police commissioners here in the past three years commissioner Michael Harrison is leading the department now he took over for Gary toggle who left awhile ago who took over for a commissioner d'souza who was indicted on tax fraud so there's been a number of leadership changes of course as you folks have followed on A. B. C. news we've also had some turmoil with the mayor's office the former mayor Catherine Pugh I recently indicted on some some tax charges and and that sort of stuff so it's been a difficult sort of transition for the city and and again the killings as have not stopped I mean since ever since the riots about five years ago but things have really been spiking here in Baltimore that really was sort of the start of a turn for Baltimore wasn't it those those rights when they happen there yeah absolutely it has been and that's really been the biggest problem because of the number of illegal drugs on the streets as well as the number of guns is illegal guns are just a big problem here just about every homicide you investigate here always has an illegal gun typically over some sort of drug deal gone bad those are all sorts of familiar themes with things I'm in addition you know non fatal shootings are also up we've had seven hundred and thirty five non fatal shooting so far this year so imagine if every one of those was a homicide I mean look at the no homicide numbers we would have here in the city and and really one of the things that a lot of the police commissioners all of them really have credited even the mayors of said you know we have such a good hospital system here in Baltimore because we have Johns Hopkins is some of the other big hospitals here you know we see a lot of trouble so the doctors are very good at saving lives so if maybe the doctors weren't as good here in Baltimore you know maybe we wouldn't have much higher homicide rate but but so far those numbers have been something that they just can't seem to get down now the the governor of Maryland Larry Hogan recently announced over twenty eight million dollars in state funding to help fight crime specifically in the city of Baltimore what was the reaction to that and do you think even that much money would do much good well it's certainly something that's been a welcome in the city of the city's always looking for more money in the crime find whether or not it's you know more equipment for police officers are more prosecutors you know some say the prosecutor's offices you're shorthanded because they can't go after a lot of the criminals that are on the street because they simply don't have the manpower a lot of these crimes were committed by juvenile offenders which is a whole other situation that the governor has wanted to straighten out they brought in the state prosecutor's office to help the city prosecutors in these cases because witness intimidation is such a big problem in fact part of the twenty million dollars he's going to go to pay for witness relocation you know the stop snitching mentality which was a big part of the wire which many of our listeners may have seen off the HBO series a number of years the wire is very real and in some cases like cases now it's worse than it has been in the past in fact commissioner Harrison told me a couple of months ago that he watched the wire he said I was fascinated with the body said now is that these are real people that are involved so the twenty some odd million dollars of the governor is going to dump into this program you know he's hoping that it'll help that also comes along with some legislative stuff that has to be done he thinks that there needs to be stronger sentences for people who commit a crime with an illegal gun bill thank you so much thanks Terry part.

And you know, it was interesting watching him and my major was political science evolves. And he's been evolving ever tent and didn't even realize that delegates delegate process in the Republican party in the beginning. It's been understand cruise stealing delegates, and he didn't understand a lot of different things that were going on around him. But this is message was resonating with people, and and it's such a silent majority. When I go out here still today, and for most Trump every day, I seen the silent majority come up talking out of regular basis, and it's growing, and you know, I've got friends that actually merchandising for a living and. Only. I it comes close Trump right now. He's Bernie Sanders and Hillary didn't do anything in merchandise. But I also want to make the point that I think people need to realize that think about that won the election was taking place. No one ever dreamt that Hillary was going to lose Eden the deal Jay, and the FBI the what was it that they were really offensive to do. I believe they were actually going to put Donald something prison as against the Hilary wants to want. I really believe that that all in the work, and it turned on them.

"Public school educators. Want the freedom to be able to do their jobs by their own lights and not have their job performance reduced to a number on a page. So that let's talk about that kind of free. And let's talk about the freedom for women to make their own reproductive health care choices without a male politician and president. That's what I think it needs to talk about freedom in its in its richer, thicker sense, and is not going to happen unless we're out there to advocate for it. Because the right kind of government policy can secure that freedom just as much as the wrong kind of policy can infringe upon it. So let's talk about freedom. Let's talk about security as a veteran. I am. So sick of the idea that security or patriotism belong to one part? These are American values and the flag that was stitched to my shoulder. Actually, it was okay on when I went into Afghantistan was not the property of one party or the other party. But I will say that only one party seems to be concerned with some of the security threats that are going to face in the twenty first century. You know, we need to come out and talk about how there's more to security and then putting up a wall from sea to shining sea. Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buddha. Judge live in Des Moines Iowa. Global security means that we were actually competing with the Chinese model, which is being held up as an alternative because America, look so divided confusing week. And right now, we need to talk about cybersecurity at a time when talking about somebody can't put up a wall to deal with time cybersecurity threats are only going to increase it would help if we had people in charge. You understood what type of security is. It would also help when we're getting ready to deal with what I think is security challenge of our time to be ready to act on climate and to define climate.

"Am a graphic designer from Des Moines Iowa, and I'm falling Dave Ramsey's plan. And I've gotten to the point where I've got my house refinanced and get paid off and just have the house to pay off at school and pretty slowly. So I'm trying to earn more income, and I feel like I should be earned quite a bit more after ten years on the job than I am now. So I'm kind of at a crossroads as to what I should do scrap my career or my education field and try something different or keep going. I think kinda just suck at the hustle. And I'm looking for some direction. Okay. All right. Well, let's start with some added girls because the way to go on the Dave Ramsey baby steps and getting to where you're just working on paying off a house. Can we just acknowledge that that's a lot of hard work? That's a big time accomplishment. And I just wanna say way to go, Emily because you're way ahead of most people in United States. So so get a little pep in your step. Thank you. All right. And to keep that, right? He do my debt free scream or I can't wait for that to happen. But let's talk about this crossroads. So really? It's it's it's about the I need is you wanna make some more money that you're just kind of Itchen you've been doing it for ten years. You wanna make more money? That's that's the first challenge. And in the second challenge is well, do I go do something else or do I stay in graphic design? So let's let's stay there for a moment. Do you love graphic design? I do have a word it pretty rewarding. And it's fun and interesting and they've verse but. I just can't seem to get my pay up. Okay. Well, let's talk about that. So we know you like to work. That's what I wanted to know. I because you could do that work in a lot of different places. Graphic design is a pretty valuable position you can do that for a lot of different organizations if you like the work, and so I wanna talk about you can't seem to get that race has this been a conversation. You had with your superior. How many times over ten years I'd say about six or seven we have annual reviews, and I it's just something that's been kind of. I kind of joke about it a little bit. And I've also said that I mean an increase, and they gave me small increases, but I have a degree in. I make about the thirty four thousand. So it's kind I don't know if I should compare myself to my friends, but they're plumbers interpret divers and they're making. In sixty five. So well, that's okay. So let me stop you right there. Because comparison to friends and family is a cancer. It will eat your soul alive, and those are different jobs. So you can't compare a graphic designer job to a trucker. You just can't do. So what I want to know is have you done any research about your type of work a graphic designer with your amount of experience. Have you done any market research to see what is an industry average for your amount of experience in the type of work..
