"Benefits from There is another aspect to this, which I'm also going to pick up with our third Panelists. And that's Joyce Karan, senior correspondent of the ABA Daba based newspaper, the national She's based in Washington, where she's also imagine professor at George Washington University. Risk around. Welcome to the real story. One other aspect of those worsening relations with Iran has been better relations between the Gulf States and Israel something that President Trump is very proud off and may will be an important part of his legacy. Tell us a little bit about that. First of all. Yeah, thank you. Ritual. A. I mean, if we look at the Gulf region today, it's a very different region than the one that President elect Biden dealt with as both a senator and then for the most part as vice president. Just in the last three months. We saw two Arab countries u A E and Barry normalized relations with Israel. That's historic. You're also seeing a change in leadership in both our man and Kuwait. But politically when you look at the Gulf region, the governments are also more defiant. They're more proactive and policy making so, yes, while they had Better relationship with President Trump. They also did not consult with him on bake a policy decisions such as the cutter boycott that continues three years later. On the Yemen war, For example, the U. S was not consulted and that was back during the Obama days. So what I see is a weakened US leverage in the Gulf region. We do see you no more arm sales visits, but when it comes to impacting the policy making off Gulf governments I think there's a weekend US hand of those governments have expanded their ties with both Russia and China. Let's pick up on that point you make about Casa Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son in law is in the region. As we record this program on, there's a lot of speculation that he's trying to end that spat between A coalition of states, led by Saudi Arabia that's seen cat are isolated on the accusation against Qatar is that it was too close to Iran and backed radical Islamists can that blockade against cattle be ended? We have seen these efforts from the Trump administration repeatedly in the last three years. This time, I believe Jared Kushner is only working on the Saudi Katari tracks. So even if that there's fruit, you're still gonna have three countries that are not on board with their reconciliation. Yak of cuts The Abraham accords. How strong are they? Is it my enemy's enemy is my friend, Or does it go deeper than that? It started that way, but I think if we look back, one of the fathers of these records is, ironically, actually Barack Obama by engaging with Iran and striking the JCP away that deal in 2015 with the Iranians, it brought all the countries that are threatened by Iran together. At first it was behind closed doors. But you had Israel, The Saudis, the Bahrainis? Yeah. Moratti's Armani's and everyone else and the Qataris as well talking, working together sharing intelligence sharing technology. And this is now was able to finally come out of the shadows. Right, So I think that it has some institutional history. It's not something that just happened when we heard about it a few months ago, it's been going on now. For a number of years Now the Gulf States felt that they were able to let it out to the public. And I think that What gives its stability. Is the fact that you very much have a piece here with the Abraham accords that is people to people. It's not just government to government. If I were contrast, what's happening today with U A E and by rain And Israel with the peace deals that were made with the Egyptians and the Jordanians in the late seventies and the early nineties. There, it's government to government, but there's almost no warmth between the Egyptian people in the Israeli people. And the Jordanian people in the Israeli people. That's a big difference. Now. I think we're talking about something like 60 to 70 flights a week between tell Aviv and the U A. They're talking about dozens of flights between Tell Aviv and Bar Ray you're looking at just over the upcoming Hanukkah holiday in mid December. Tens of thousands of Israelis were supposed to be descending on Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the gentleman says. I wonder how that's viewed. I saw a picture in the other day, the other day of an Israeli wedding, the first Israeli wedding in Dubai. Is this going to be Much stronger relationship. I do tend to agree with Yakov. In a sense, you're seeing people two people piece that we didn't see between Jordan and Israel or between Egypt and Israel. So this is a transformative agreement, and I don't know if you noticed, you know. I think last week the Egyptian government is pursuing legal options against one off its singers who appeared with an Israeli singer and Dubai. So that tells you the big difference was saying three decades after Egyptian peace and now with the U S A. But I do have to say that without Palestinian Israeli peace thistles, not enough. The region will not know long time stability and the region will not be able to heal the old wounds without a two state solution. I want to come back to that in a moment, but as a take one quick question on Iran. Obviously, Iran wants to see the Biden administration return to the JCP away to the Iran deal. But how does it view many of its enemies kind of gang up against it? It will not add to fears in Iran or at the sense of crisis in Iran. I didn't give Ron is very well aware that it shares some areas of those tactical and strategic interests with the U. S that are distinct to Iran in the US, whether it's Iraq or Afghanistan, whether it's the campaign against Isis, you know there are specific areas and in some of these areas, the U. S and Iran have cooperated in the past. And so I think that you know Iran is being very patient on hoping to return to a state of affairs where there is a possibility. To deal with the strategic nuclear issue with the U. S and the Europeans on in a way, you know once that is out of the way to be able to potentially dovetail and converge with interests of its neighbors in the Gulf, its Arab neighbors in other areas like Yemen, for example, Iran doesn't Problem major strategic interests there. And if there's a sort of Motus, the vendors that can be reached with with Saudi Arabia, I think that would be constructive for Iran. I think Iran on the Abraham Accords doesn't view this as the sort of Rosie historic moment that perhaps it's perceived in Israel or by some in the Gulf. I think you're on season as normalizing another relationship that already existed, but that also it might, in the end make the US more. Dogmatic about dealing with Iran because it was closer to Iran in Iranian missile could really jeopardize, you know the whole sort of tourism and financial basis on which to buy an apple doubIe survive. There is significant trading relationships, so I think in a way, While it seems as though Iran is being sort of sidelined, it does bring in a set of interests and sensitivities for the U. S. A. It will make it more pragmatic as it is, as Joyce so ably describe diversifying its strategic relationships and hoping that there will be other partners that may come to its protection if the U. S proves unreliable in the long term as a security guarantor. Well, let's think a bit more about that U S relationship with Iran potentially let's hear from Tom Malinowski. He served as assistant secretary of State for democracy, human rights and Labor during the second term of the Obama administration and is now a Democratic member of Congress. He sits on the House Foreign Relations Committee. We began by talking about the Iran nuclear deal and about some of its most contentious aspect. In particular the sunset clauses, these state that once key nuclear restrictions expire That's in years, 8, 10 and 15. Iranians are legally free to build up their uranium enrichment capability on this would then in turn, reduce the time it would take to make nuclear weapons. That is something that Many people find problematic about the deal. Well, I began by asking Congressman Malinowski whether the wide coalition of anti nuclear deal countries across the Middle East makes it harder for a president Biden to return to the deal or even re imagine the relationship with Iran. I'm not sure if it makes it harder. Certainly there is an access of countries or I would say not countries, but leaders, including Prime Minister Netanyahu and Mohammed bin Salman and.

"Begs the question. If that is indeed, the case, can Hamilton the musical reopen on Broadway, or Alexander Hamilton, slave owner? My name is Alexander Hamilton. And there's a million things I haven't done. Just apparently there are a few things he has done that we didn't know about. Exactly Look already know that's all. We'll just get the show. We'll see. All right. Gayle and rookies the producer, an anchor fivethirtyeight dot com politics podcast And well, Galen joins us now. Good morning, Galen. Morning. So, Galen, I gotta ask you. I mean, once again, it seems that all these polls were way off base. So many people were predicting this blue wave. Democrats were goingto, you know, expand their lead in the house. They were going to grab the Senate, and so far it looks like that is not happening. How come the publisher's got a wrong yet again? And can we trust these pollsters ever again? Yeah, I think there were certainly, uh, larger than average polling Erin this year in various states. I mean, so it's important to think back to 2015 a year when Polling air was on average pulling out right like polar never perfectly correct in 2016. They weren't that far off. They're actually further off this year, and then they were in 2016. I think it's gonna take some time to collect all the data and figure out what exactly happened here. I mean, all the results haven't mentality and we don't have reliable polls at this point. So, Yeah. I mean, I think we're gonna have Tio have to figure out what exactly happened to the question of whether or not you should never trust pollsters again. I mean, I think it's incumbent on posters. Teo Teo. Make sure they figured out what happened and do a better job next time because I think pulling is important is how we figure out what public opinion is in America, which is a democracy and in democracies. Public opinion matters. Hey, Gail, in your organization fivethirtyeight with Nate Silver, Really? Ah, took a lot of slings and arrows from people. I mean, after what happened four years ago, and you said it was within the polling R and I'll take your word for it. We've had people on from your organization said, you know, we fixed everything this year, The Pulsar said, You know, we know we know what went wrong last time and now we fixed it. But apparently you guys have it. How are you guys taking all the slings and arrows over at 5? 30, are you Are you going duck under your desk ever every two minutes. Well, First of all, I should say, we aren't pollsters, right? So we create a forecast which the job before time eventually. Tio Day how much uncertainty there is in the polling, and the results of this election was well within the you know the forecast distribution rights. Joe Biden will end up winning nationally by something between Four and five points. That means that there was a pulling and given that the national polls on average reporting towards an eight point win, But you know, it's obviously Not wildly out of line with the kind of polling errors we've seen in the past. I think pollsters do have to figure out the extent to which they were missing Trump voters. It could have been a result of turnout right there was massive turnout on both sides. Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe it's difficult to reach Trump voters. I mean, one of the confusing things here right is that the polls in Minnesota were spot on while the Poles in Wisconsin were really wrong, But the demographics of those two states are pretty similar. So it's It's like it's kind of weird. You would expect that in general, you have consistent pulling air across regions. So we'll have to see what happened. Also in Florida, I think that perhaps pulling the Hispanic vote, especially Cuban Americans down in South Florida could be a challenge. And so yeah, I mean, it's important to look at the results and make pulling back. All right. Well, at the risk of goofing up again there, Galen, can you tell us? Do you think the Republicans are going to hold on to at least one of those Senate seats down in Georgia so that they can keep control of the United States Senate? Well, you know, I certainly don't know, And I don't even think we have Ah, good polling. At this point of that race, I would say that the most people's friars are probably that the window seat Just because Georgia is historically a pretty Republican state. Uhm, you know, now that Joe Biden is the president elect Democratic voters may no longer be motivated to turn out in massive numbers because they don't like Trump. You know, we'll have to see. I mean, it's it's early days still. So yesterday there was some big news made horrible Galen Drew by the way. The producer anchor at fivethirtyeight dot com Politics podcast here in New York, and so yesterday's news about the vaccine. Ah Ah, Cuomo kind of took a cheap shot and said, Well, the problem with the vaccine is its. We don't want it distributed by the trump people. So I mean, that was I thought that was kind of a cheap shot. But what do you think? The vaccine would do for you know, President elect by this first term, for example. Uh, well, I mean, if the country is in a place where the pandemic is improving and no longer getting worse. I mean, that's obviously good for un incumbent president. You know, in general, when people judge the situation of the country how our president is doing how politician doing You're often looking at trendlines like Cartman's getting better or things get worse, not necessarily absolute terms of how good or bad things are in the country right now. And so, you know, it's clear, though, that when Biden takes office towards the end of January, we'll still be in the middle of a pretty bad stand up. So it's not like he won't have many of the challenges the pandemic has given us from the past year when he first takes office. I mean, hopefully we all hope That the vaccine will be very get approved. And, you know Honore, Doctor, somewhat normal life, Cyn. Again in just a minute left. But when Biden gets into power here, do you have a sense Is he going to he's going to have to do something for the progressives who turned out to vote for him or ahh, kind of hoping wealth, which controls the Senate's A good excuse for me to take the moderate course. I mean, Republicans control the Senate. I don't think there's much of an option. We'll have to see Obviously the Ah motus operandi when Obama was president and Republicans controlled the Senate was to basically do nothing well here, Mitch McConnell and Republicans take that passed this time around, but I think it's clear either way. That unit's final on Republicans in the Senate will be improving of any Particularly progressive policies is that human rights called still a divided country. Gale and Ruthie, producer and anchor of fivethirtyeight dot com Politics podcast. Thank Thanks, Gail Appreciate the time. Peter You know, it could be like it could be right there. Let I mean we, Joe Biden could be in the White House. But nothing's goingto happen could be total gridlock again. If the Republicans control the Senate, certainly certainly a possibility. Although You know, the argument could be made that the first two years of Trump's term he had the House and the Senate and the White House and not much got there that was accomplished either other than executive orders so I'll say Well, as always. It's been fascinating. Buying this certainly gonna issue a bunch of executive orders will be joining that crazy climate change conference there in Paris, which basically is gonna duel Raysy executive orders that your boy did something crazy. You're right. Abi will do a bunch of eggs and including rejoining the World Health Organization during a pandemic. Yep, he might actually do something crazy like that. Yeah, well, it is kind of nutty thes committees of all these international people. Just the way the hamstring thie, United States give me a break. All right, when we get back, Hey, somebody on this show has a book coming out. And if you're aware of that, not since Gutenberg released his Bible has the publishing world seemed such a momentous moment That's coming up next their land.

"Political persuasion, all of us wish only the best for President Trump in the first lady as they work to recover from Cove it but their infection has come just over a month away for an election, and it is sure to have ramifications for that election. Help us sort through some of those ramifications. We welcome our political contributors, Rick Davis of Stone Court Capital and Jeannie's A No political science professor at Iona College. So, Rick, let's start with you. You've run presidential campaigns, including for John McCain. What does this do to a campaign is a practical matter. Well, you know, during the slowdown in the economy or the shutdown in the economy in September of our campaign right before the general election, much like this, and John McCain announced that he was going Tio suspend his campaign. On DH, so taking TV off and shutting down the schedule and things like that were quite a lurch to the campaign. And so I know something about having a candidate who all of a sudden decides he's gonna stop campaigning. This is a little different in that It's October, so every day is important in the fall campaign of an election and in this month is particularly important. To this president who's the underdog and trying to fight for his reelection. So the idea that he is now no longer available, at least for the next 10 days? Maybe 15. To the campaign, which is centered around his big rallies. I's gonna leave them in a quandary is how they actually still convey a message to these key states. Genie we had, of course by sewing a button expressed his best wishes for the president and for the first lady. And say he would have them his prayers at the same time. Is there any prospect he might out of? Simply say, Okay, I'm not going to campaign for a little bit here. You know, he has been very, very cautious in terms of his appearances. As we note throughout the campaign. I think you know the danger for the Biden campaign would be if he or anybody associated with the campaign said something that made them appear insensitive to the president. The first lady You know, Obviously, they haven't done that yet. They released a You know, a very fine, you know, sort of thinking of you and hoping everything gets better remark as they should. But At this point. I don't think we're going to see any slowdown in terms of the biting campaign yet, but of course things are changing so quickly. We just don't know there's a statement out for the Trump Pence campaign, saying that as far as the president goes, the events will either have made virtual or they'll be postponed. Events involving the first family are being postponed. Vice president. Pence will go forward with his scheduled campaign events. So Rick, as you say that is challenging, particularly campaign that is so driven around the personality of one person, Donald J. Trump. That's right. I mean his entire campaign Motus operandi, aside from social media and advertising, which will continue unabated is his rallies, and that's how he generates enthusiasm and promotes his message and without hiss. Voice out there. It's going to be much more difficult to pick up steam into these targeted battleground states. And I would say the good news for the Trump campaign is that VP debate and so they will be able to make up some ground in the sense that they will have the vice president Pence debating Kamala Harris. On on Wednesday night, and that will be the center of attention in the campaign. That's fascinating at the same time in terms of the campaign overall, the election overall genie does this. Just make it a one issue campaign. I mean, some people were trying to make it that way anyway. But covert 19 You know, whatever the president has said. In the past. You can't deny this is a really big problem for the country. You can't and it does overshadow everything to do with this campaign in house from the beginning, it's not to the president's advantage. He wanted to turn the page as far as you can on something like this. But of course, and the most visceral of ways. This brings it right to his doorstep, and the campaign is going to have to handle it on DH. I'm curious to see how they do that in the days going forward. What the response to this is from sort of a PR perspective, if you will. You know, Are they going to show you know any humility on this, or are they going to me? If he beats this, and hopefully we all hope he does. Is there going to be a more defiant response to this? And the other thing I would say is that Mike, you know Mike Pence, thankfully, has tested negative. Of course for Americans were not only concerned about campaigning. We're concerned about governance and I, you know, we want to make sure that Mike Pence is safe as he goes out and campaigns in case we need him to step up in governor at any point. Hopefully, we do not. But that's also a concern because there's a lot of issues to be handled from a governance. Perspective. Really important point Rick we have seen may be a little bit of precedent for this over in United Kingdom. With Boris Johnson, the prime minister there where he got covered 19 he actually hospital ISMs was quite ill. Ah, how did he handle Because his approval ratings as I recall went up rather starkly. Yes, I think that there was a sympathy factor for Boris Johnson. He too similar to the president kind of shunned a lot of the traditional. Ah, methodology around combating. Corona virus, specifically not wearing a mask. And so I think there was AH lot of concern a TTE that point in time, but he rallied after his illness and Became a riel advocate for wearing masks within his own country..

"L want Selina's always were working on your financial freedom. But to get there We may have to work on your intellectual structure. What do you mean by that? Well, Throughout the years. I have found that there are people that are successful. And people who aren't And most of the time when you get to meet the successful people. They all think pretty much the same way. I mean, with with given, you know, personality differences and where they grew up in, you know some social differences of different kinds of You know whether you grew up in New York, California with South or whatever. Those are a little bit different, but But in reality, successful people have some pretty good, pretty common core belief systems about life. And I've been reading self help books ever since I was a kid. And I wonder if that's exactly what The difference is too successful. People read self help books. Um, I don't know. I don't know if that's the common core or not, I wouldn't guess differently. I would assume that maybe the secret, right? But it's interesting because I've read so many different self help books. That there are so many different points of view. But they keep getting What I call distilled back down again. In other words, If you read books written 200 years ago, the ideas seemed unique it that time. But then you re read book That's only 100 years old, and there they are again. Maybe spoke a little bit different order or different way. But the reality is they're still there. And if you read stuff that's written 50 years ago, you could find the same stuff is there So when you look at the results you get in your life. Those results are pretty much going to be dictated. Bye in my mind your point of view. And today would have done it. I brought up a self help book here by a guy named Tony Robbins. You've probably all heard of him. He wrote a book called Unlimited Power. This was back when this book was written, was pretty high powered means best seller for a long time. I got a lot out of it when I read it the 1st 2nd 3rd time in almost every stuff, a book that's ever been good for me. I've had to read it two or three times. Because you're just not ready for all the stuff that's in there in each thing thatyou pick up changes your position in life. It jokes. What is a juxtaposition you to a new place? Where you see things different. Then you go back to read the book again. Go. That's interesting. I didn't even see it that way. The first time. And so you go through these things, and I'm just Bringing this up because the other day I spent some time with a friend of mine. Who had been a real estate investor, his entire life. How can it be that this entire life his dad was a real estate investor? So he and his dad and his brother, you know have been. He's been a real city investors entire life. I don't know if you even had a job. I think he has a college degree and he might be an engineer or something. My trade, but I've never seen the guy work all the time. I've known him. I've never seen him do anything but own real estate. Man. I was talking to him the other day about a real state transaction I was looking at and just want to get his opinion on it. So he's been doing it for years. You know, even myself. I've been doing this for 30 years to do something a little different, like someone's got a little more expertise in that specific field. And I was looking at that specific field that I had not done before. Um, he hadn't so I want to get some information. But I was really surprised what I learned, which See, I learned stuff I need to know about the transaction I was looking at, but really, what I learned was But this guy had been investments and he was a kid. His dad had him investing and stuff and so He's got real estate transactions that go back 2030 40 years. And I'm thinking about it. I want 30 years ago, I was 100 houses sold all those Then I bought a 10 unit apartment complex. I sold that. I want time owned a 20 unit. I sold that at one time I owned a 30 unit. Which was 15 duplexes. I sold that at one time owned a 40 year department complex. I sold that. One time I had a 64 sold that has 68. Sold that had 88 I sold that had 100 for. I stole that, Uh, I had a 34 forgot. My 34 had 30 40. I sold that I had 1 56 and I sold that. Out of 256 and I sold that at 270. And I sold that. I had 140 I sold that and I had a 340 And I sold that I still own six more apartment complex. And so what's happening is I'm selling the small ones and buying larger ones. Right? More expensive ones on DH. Just keep changing my portfolio. Well, this guy had done a little bit of that. I mean, he did, As he said, When stuff gets really old, 2030 years old, you just don't wanna hassle with anymore. He would sell it in 10 31 into something newer, more expensive. And just keep rotating his portfolio. No, I talked to the guy that was in charge of Camden Property Trust, which is probably the largest real estate trust. In the country. And I think his name's Rick Compost sitting having a drink with him one night and I was asking him his. You know his philosophy about it, he says. Well, the Camden philosophy is is that we don't own I'm sorry. I'm just a they said. We have an average life in our portfolio about 10 years. He said. So if we've got something that's 15 years old, we need something. Five years old, so that averages 10 As they get older and older and older. We eventually get rid of them. We try to keep our average right around 10 years old or left. Interesting thing again. Why? Because that's when the major capital expenses start to occur. Now we've made a ton of money. And lifestyles are members by buying that old stuff that these guys get rid of fixing it up. Renovating, raising the rent increase in the income, decreasing the expenses. And making it worth a lot more money. That was our Motus apparat die for getting rich but rich people who already have money. Want to buy new stuff. And so now that I'm successful financially, I'm buying new stuff. Same thing. And I'm not buying it to fix it up. I'm buying it just for the cash flow. And I'm buying Mohr and Mohr and Maur, this type of stuff and less and less and less of the other type of stuff. The older stuff and I'm upgrading my portfolio with my portfolio is becoming newer. Now my portfolio is not yet an average of 10 years old. I'm not there yet, but it's getting a lot closer. I mean, it used to be an average of about 30 years old. And I'd say now my average is probably closer to 2015 to 20 years old as an average. Remember that I've got one properties. That's brand new. It adds to the average but they're still older properties in the four failures, So we look at these things and we think what is our perspective? In the perspective that I had for years was for me to get wealthy. I needed to sell this stuff. So I could double up inside. I could increase and by newer stuff improved my portfolio. But here I'm running into a guy who's seen basically he's held on to the same stuff for 30 years. Ask him how many properties that he said he had 70 properties. Now we have people like that have 70 properties. In fact, we have quite a few people. Now They're up to that number. And you just wonder.

"Earlier this week, a video was released, which showed Australia's vice-chancellor conducting an unwisely amenable conversation with someone claiming to be connected to Russian money in the video shot on either in two thousand seventeen Heinz Christians rocker of the ultra-conservative Freedom Party appeared to be offering government contracts for political favors. He has now resigned and the Freedom Party has quit the government plunging Austrian politics into crisis. It is an extremely we'd scandal. Indeed verging on inexplicable, if you are a remotely sensible politician is only one rational response to any suggestion by anyone with a Russian accent, that quantity, rubles might be on offer in return for certain surreptitious services rendered that one sensible response. Is this stand up? Thank them for the drink and declared as loudly. And as clearly as possible in the direction of any lamp shades handbags that might be secrete. Eating cameras that you are. Absolutely not interested. Not now not ever. Not for the first time angry. Populists have demonstrated themselves temperamentally unsuited to actual governance. Can Austria's chancellor Sebastian Kurz survive this and seeing as how he brought these dubious far-right Yahoos into power does he deserve to this is the foreign desk? He tried to distance himself from this a little bit, and tried to portray himself as having been sort of transformed, but that infect was not completely true and could took one and a half years. Now to say that this is really enough. And he didn't do this. I mean this video just showed too much of the moon face of his coalition partners. You don't have to take very far to understand that Russian money per meets European politics in a really big way. Loads of Russian money makes its way into European parties through think tanks through various kind of campaign. Pledges. There is a huge problem post himself as somebody who suffered who week demised himself for the nation for the country. But this is sorry to say nonsense, because it was him who built this collision, it was also him who would have had so many possibilities and options to say something nobody told him to suffer. You're listening to the foreign desk with me, Andrew Miller on today's show. We'll take a detailed look at the scandal, which has both up ended and bewildered. Australian politics and ask, if there is a lesson here for voters elsewhere, in Europe, considering supporting populist outsiders, like, for example, don't but I currently of Monaco's correspondent in Vienna outlines what has become known as I beat the gate. It's hard to convey to the outside world, the extent to which the scandal has gripped the Australian imagination everyone who was talking about it in every cafe in every home up enough to guess drinking video was, he comes Alexandrian, a quarter of the population watch that historic speech by chancellor Sebastian courts last Saturday. The one where he said that enough was enough skin. Skin is and that was in the same night as Eurovision and in the spirit of vision. The scandal has given a new lease of life to this nine thousand nine hundred nine hit song by the she adults group, Bengals gets cold. We're going to be, so it's at the top of the charts in Australia. Why? Well. Because of course it was on that Spanish on that the secret video was recorded. Seriously, though, the video came as a complete bombshell, but the fact that it was the Freedom Party, the FBI mass down. So spectacularly was actually not that surprising until compared to if the social Democrats and the conservatives have long very long tradition on their values on their ideology on their programmatic basis, and this is quite different to f f is a party that opposes and not creates. And this is one answer why they always fail by themselves, did Luke was a spokesperson for the former conservative chancellor, Vulcan Schuessel, who also led a coalition government with the F the in the early two thousands. She was that, when that government collapsed would say their challenge is not being. A responsible party who governs? It's more being a party of the opposition. And this is a different role and blow up. It was their own failure. It was not the failure by others. Nobody would think about having another if a if a coalition for the next future. So I think they really knocked out themselves. Is in trouble then. So is the of a pay the conservatives, but things could go either way for them. It all depends on whether their leader chancellor courts survives the no confidence vote on Monday courses being under five using the fat his own ends, and Fulmer coalition with the F the fest place. His public statements have the past week. Have also come in for some criticism. He post himself as somebody who, who suffered two week demise himself for the nation for the country. But this is I'm sorry to say nonsense, because it was him who built this nation it was him. Baba taught is reporter working for the Viennese weekly defaulter, the only Australian publication that was given access to this talk video before it was released. She's written a biography of court since she's been watching his behavior in the public's reaction stood closely Ostrom people. They're beginning to scrutinize in to deconstruct would he's doing because. It's, it's easy now to see. I'm the anchor and I will guarantee stability, but people are beginning to ask, who's he takes responsibility for this crisis, and that's him. So it's going to be not so easy for him to have the same run during the election. Like trees Sebastian codes loses the no confidence vote on Monday. He'll remain the most popular politician in the country. But what does all this mean for the? All the all fall ride going to slip from political infamy into political obscurity. Alost word from baba told no Mike, my answer would be no. Because we believe experienced the end of the F in the beginning of two thousand to two thousand three some thought, it's the end in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s so I would be very careful to say. It's the end let's, let's remember, do not Trump during his campaign when this recording. When pop Nick, where he talked about what he does with women, and everybody was shock. Then everybody thought this is going to be the end of Donald Trump. And he was he was elected. Similar to this. I think it can even help to mobilize Motus, who will see the effects, the something.

"WWL studios in New Orleans. Louisiana stays with you in beautiful downtown celebrating that saints win today over the falcons walk in the streets after the game. See and the people partying and celebrating hundreds of people at the airport welcoming the saints back after the win. Yes. Good good. Nice win two and one now the New Orleans Saints. But that secondary issues that secondary has has some real problems. I've got to come up with the nickname for the saints secondary. Because they've been awful as greatest drew Brees has been and of course, and Camara and the and the receivers and. That secondary got torched again today by Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons and lucky to win. And I am very happy being here in New Orleans at the saints won me coin toss and overtime because truck and right down the field and won the game. I'm also happy with Steve Sarkisian is the office coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons because on the last possession of regulation time after drew Brees memory rolled left and made that spin move touchdown. And it was thirty seven. All I said to myself. Oh, the way this state secondaries perform today. All Matt Ryan has to do is get him into field goal range. He had a minute two thousand five seconds and three timeouts. Oh here. We go. They've got one of the best field goal kickers in the league there get across midfield. And here we go now. Saints are going to lose on a last second field goal, and they'd been torturing the saints all day long throwing it downfield and Steve Sarkisian being who he is. And I know him better than anybody him and Laney boy kiffin when I was. Living in Los Angeles doing the local radio there, and we covered USC the Trojans night did the pre and post game show every Saturday, and I did the Pete Carroll show every week, and I was out of practice all the time those two dopes lane kiffin and Steve Sarkisian. Those two those two partying frat boys. I know those two all too well. So the falcons get the ball. They get a minute and twenty five seconds left. A couple of timeouts ready to go down there. Kick the game winning field goal. They've torched the saints all night. And he starts throwing everything underneath playing conservative saying, I love this. Because I want the saints to win. And then they wind up having to punt the saints. Get the ball back. They go to overtime. They win the toss. Breeze. Drives him down the field game over forty three thirty seven that was Steve Sarkisian in a nutshell. At the end of that game getting conservative. That's why the falcons have problems in the red zone. That's why they have problems an end of game situations because that is Motus operandi Asarco in the way the falcons played on that final drive regulation. So, but I said to myself we've got to give the state secondary a nickname because they have been God awful this year. And I tell you one thing had the falcons won that game today. PJ Williams of the saints sort of gotten the game ball and been awarded player of the game for the falcons because he was personally responsible for twenty one falcons points today getting beat onto touchdown throws. And then a pass interference call on a third and four with would have held the falcons to a field goal and they wind up scoring a touchdown. So he was responsible for twenty one points. Such that we got to give them a nickname. Maybe some kind of inspiration. Some kind of kick in the ass to get him to play a little bit better. So I came up with the arson squad. You know, because you know, that's the nickname that baseball bullpens get when they can't get anybody out because they ignite a fire every time they come in. And then, you know, walking around New Orleans like had been all week seeing the French culture here and the floor deletes everywhere and everything French with the architecture, and the design I came up with the French army how about that for the saints secondary. Because who surrenders who throws up the white flag whom meekly backs down more than the French. When it comes time to fight a war. The French army that might be or how about the French resistance that might be even better. The French resistance for the saints secondary. And then I came up with the pacifist and the spectators, but I like this one I came up with the these slow in the furious as opposed to the fast and furious franchise those saints defensive backs. What's that? And what? And what are the? What are the late night engineers here? WWL who's listening to the show back there? A good friend of mine. He just walked in and handed me a slip of paper. And it send in the clowns. Oh my goodness. A new name for the saints drew from debt nation. Says send in the clowns the new nickname for the Saint secondary. So what do you think, especially if you live here in WWL county in New Orleans where I'm sitting right now up in the eighth floor of the beautiful studio here send in the clowns. You know, I kind of liked the French resistance a little bit. But I think the slow in the furious. Eight five five three two three four embassy. The phone number eight five five three two three four NBC or hit me up on Twitter at Dave sports. Scott now on the serious side. I think tonight that played the drew Brees made when he was running to his left, and he's going to be forty years old in January, obviously not a kid anymore. He's willing to his left and there's two killers coming after these guys in the Atlanta Falcons secondary, probably in their mid twenties. Coming full speed. I said to myself. Oh here comes the boom. To try to make a play running to his left here. Come to killers after him here come to athletic young defensive backs. They're going light him up and he stopped in his tracks. And we all saw this today. He did a three sixty spin broke away from two tacklers. And then runs and dives into the end zone for testing. I was saying to myself for a forty s player he'll be forty in January that might be the greatest run and the greatest play that I've ever seen for somebody his age and the NFL can you think of a better one eight five five three two three four NBC. And I tell you what. When those two guys are in the film room this week, boy, they gonna get lit up by their coaches. Can you imagine their teammates making fun of them and laughing at him? This forty year old guy. You got him dead bang. He's got his back to you. Both my them up and not only did won miss him. You got juked. You get kicked out of your Suzy needed a three sixty broke attack into the end zone. That's gonna be there. Embarrassment on the highlight reel for years to come. Naismith? Radio dot com..
