Baruch became one of the few major business leaders to endorse Trump early in 2016, and that's the point in time where this indictment picks up, Okay. And so what do prosecutors say? Baruch did According to the indictment, right around the time that Tom Barrack started raising money for the Trump campaign and vouching for Trump with the business community, he also embarked on a conspiracy to influence the candidates take positions favorable to the United Arab Emirates.

It's a terrorist group. The same tactics terrorists use burning down cities attacking people. Motor, you know, using political ideology to attack political opponents. I was attacked by them. I don't know if I don't think I've ever told the story on the radio, but leaving not physically, I'm gonna be. I don't do hyperbole like Joe Biden, who says it's not hyperbole. I was leaving the Republican National Convention at the White House. When President Trump accepted the nomination. He was kind enough to invite me and my wife. They followed us all the way back to the hotel, threatening to rape my wife Make me watch. They were going to beat the crap out. It was a whole bunch of bluster. Garbage. I don't ever do anything because they're big boys bags, but they do threaten you. And then you know when they burned, they attack impacts never by themselves, you know, because they're s'mores roasting wussies at home, But when they're around a group of their pact friends, they come out. Like terrorist savages, and they attack people. But you know, the BLM terrorists Sorry to get off on a tangent. They were talking about communists in the Democrat Party. BLM aligns themselves largely with the Democrat Party. They pretend not to. They pretend to be anti establishment. Make no make no mistake there. Communists just like their Democrat brethren. Well, they proved it yesterday. Black lives matter, and their official blue checkmark Twitter account put out a statement. Of condemnation on what's going on in Cuba. You're like, Oh, you probably listen home like Wow, that's really nice of black lives matter. They put out a statement condemning the Cuban Communist Party for politically torturing and terrorizing their citizens get wrong.

The Social Side of Stuttering

"So today's the inauguration which got us thinking about speechmaking and speech itself president elect. Joe biden has spoken publicly about his childhood stutter. An estimated one percent of the world's adults stutter so in the us that translates to three million people speech pathologists. Naomi rogers one of them might name. Is naomi rogers. I am an assistant professor at the department of special education and communication disorders at the university of nebraska. Lincoln stuttering is when a person repeats or prolong sounds syllables and words causing breaks in the flow of speech or disfluencies. Often it begins in childhood. Childhood stutters disappear. Some stay with a person. All their life. Naomi describes stuttering as a social phenomenon. Stuttering tends to only occur in the context of other people people who stutter tend to speak really fluently when they are talking to themselves when they are talking to their pets when they are singing when they're reading in unison with other people. Scientists don't know exactly what causes stuttering the research is increasingly linking it to genetics in one. Study two thirds of people who stuttered had a family member who also stuttered or use to stuttering likely rooted in neurobiology and the actual mechanics of speech. When biden is sworn in as president. Today he'll get a very important speech but it's actually different speech that naomi keeps thinking about from thirteen year. Old braid and harrington who was invited to endorse then candidate biden the democratic national convention in august. Hi my name is bridges harrington nine thirteen years old and without joe biden. I won't be talking to you today about a few months ago. I met him in new hampshire. He told me that we were members of the same club. We we stutter. Was really amazing to hear that someone like maybe became move about advice para para President just listening to it. Just now for the mtv times goosebumps Again just thinking about the pervasive narrative that exists in our society that You know stuttering openly. is not desirable the fact that he was able to just be himself talk in his most. Authentic voice was incredibly huge today on the show the social side of stuttering what it feels like to stutter as a kid and to hide it and how speech pathologists new me. Rogers is pushing for a new way of thinking about it. Altogether this is shortwave from npr. This message comes from. npr sponsor. Bank of america. You finally decided to learn how to ice skate. So you ordered the essentials. Every ice skater needs a pair of blades. And you helmet and a good set of kneepads and you used your bank of america. Cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping rewards that you put towards the cost of an essential piece of plo skating recovery. A heating pad visit bank of america dot com slash more awarding to apply now copyright twenty twenty bank of america corporation. naomi. Rogers grew up in suburban chicago. Her stutter a in childhood and in her words she didn't have effective therapy through elementary school. I would get pulled out of class and go practice reading tongue. Twisters on sounds that. I didn't even have trouble saying and so like a lot of other young people who stutter you. Learn from a very young age had a kind of go underground. Had kind of keep the stuttering to yourself inside Just because you know that nobody else in your life understands what your experiences like and that is the root of wet. Yeah a lot of like early. Shame and fearful nobility comes from. I think for a lot of folks who stutter When i got into high school. I started working with a phenomenal speech. Language pathologists who is also person who starters herself. And so for the first time. I felt like i could actually talk to somebody that understood the experience. Do you remember what this speech therapists said to you. That made an impact or even just how you felt her presence. Yeah a lot of my memories are of just crying. Honestly i remember going to her office weekly. I would drive an hour each way. Spend an hour there. And i would just unload could finally breathe. I felt like. I could finally talk to somebody who understood the experience and that was. That was my outlet. I cried out. She knew very early on that. I had no interest in learning how to speak more fluently. Practice specific strategies are taking me for making my speech. sam hound really fluent. You know i. I i really just wanted somebody to the holiday. My feelings and my thoughts about sorting and overall communication like who. I was personality as a communicator. And she was really successful in doing that. And and i'm actually wondering now if those early experiences in therapy that i had motivated me to suppress a lot of my stuttering and to hide it at all possible costs. Because i didn't want to go to therapy anymore. Is that what you meant a minute ago. About going underground yet you that you basically hit it as a kid before you met this really good speech therapist. Yeah yeah exactly. Just kind of hiding it and so one of you know. I think being a person who stutters pretty mildly as i do. It's it's pretty easy for me to hide my stuttering It's pretty easy to just scan ahead. Anticipated where i'm going to start on swap word. That's easier to say and so there are some sometimes when my language might seem a little convoluted or like i'm talking around something or like that's kind of an odd were choice but it works. I mean those are all done in an attempt to hide stuttering to pass as a fluent speaker. I'm picturing you in this office. You go to see her and you just cry and she knew that you didn't want to improve fluency. That wasn't the goal and it seemed like the biggest shift between that therapy and the therapy received as a kid is a therapy received. A kid is so focused on fixing yet you yet it. It almost seems like the medical model. It gets at the wrong thing. I without even individ- waiting like the treatment for the person and i'm just wondering if you could like describe the difference in those. Two therapy modalities and how it helped you. So those early experiences says Was speech therapy. were hugely rooted in the medical model of disability and so the medical model of disability defines stuttering basically as abnormal interruptions in the ford flow of speech. And so that is purely grounded. In what the listener hears as nothing to do with what the speaker who studies is experiencing so it's like a listener center definition of actually. Yeah with is messed up because stuttering is such a personal experience right and so people who stutter it. There stuttering only that is a true expression of who they are. They're just using their voice however they were born with it and so the barriers to good quality of life to psychological wellbeing are really on the environment and so i love this new definition. That a lot of folks in our field are trying to push forward that Stuttering is a neuro developmental variation. That leads to a unique forward. Execution of speech sounds importantly those are produced in the context of language and social interaction if we think about fluency on a spectrum of people that are highly fluent and we have people that are highly disfluent then stuttering reflects just a natural variation influence e which i think is really really important and and it situates stuttering as a difference and not

Please help us with a donation to donate ninety eight online. Remind some bling stored idea media. Online please help keep the truth online. This evening we're going to say a deep prayer to understanding of all this going on and all that is yet to come with faith in god. The god alone knows the past. We will succeed. We must have that faith and we must not give up that faith so dear heavenly father. Let's pray your heavenly father. We pray that you give us the power. And the strength to remain ever vigilant to pass your word on the your strength and courage on not only to others outside the fold which there are many these days to those who call themselves great christians who call themselves great levers in god in whatever form who failed to have the face needed to trust in you heavenly father. Please give us that strength. Please see that we have the power to prevail in your holy name. We pray amen. What are the essential in. The human body can have many chemicals that are our cat.

A technology only helps with inflammation in our body also produces the most hydrating water in the world. Please go to the laker description. Learn about our sponsors premium water technology. Darrell k dot com. So as always. We're gonna start out a little bit slow kind of the opposite of what most broadcast or podcast do. We seem to build up people in the on a live cast over time in new. Y- typically on my podcast. The theme runs through the the the majority of the podcast. If you missed the beginning you may be bored with the end. So it's better to be bored to beginning build up that excitement towards the end we start out with a little bit of a philosophy that i have personally a lot of the christians. We look at the new testament as soon as the book. you know. it's the only book to read. In fact a lot of lot of good practicing christian. Good people carry a new testament around my my church minister of modern day christian fellowship reverts that and takes back the old testament and the important things in the old testament because the old testament is the concrete foundation for the new testament. Without which there is no new testament new testament. We're forgiven of our sins from the old testament. We're forgiven sins of the past. But those sins were based on gifts that were given to us by god. The entire universe given to us by god. There's a lot of great things in the old testament that bring people back into the fold. The number of times. That women are empowered in the old testament. Everyone says oh. It's a man's book about men and is true. Men had a lot of the power back in those days. But when god created god created us in his image man and woman he created them in his image. Now why is that. Such an important statement is probably the most important statement in the entire bible old and new testament and most people ignore it. It's incredibly important because it shows us that we have that power with us. The power of god resides within each and every one of us. If we to accept it choose to use it. We have the power to change the way our country runs. We have the power to change the way we think. And the way others think by believing in ourselves and believing that we are got incarnation essentially. Because that's what the test the old testament says. That's why you don't see god you don't stand up and talk to god but when you talk god hears because all of us in existence every human being a small part of that small piece of god. That's why we need to maintain that power and strength and this election is really proven that most christians sir bible people call themselves bible believers most jews who believe in god and tradition more than anyone gave them and they're still giving up. Oh it's over it's over for donald trump. it's over for america it's done. We've used our last card folks. There's still some trump cards left literally rather than the mon the things that we've lost. Let's have faith. Let's have prayer sessions. Let's have believe until the bitter end until the twentieth of january. Nothing is over. And i'm the sixth of january. We may be surprised house george election ago. I don't know. I talked to god every night. I say god. Please help us please. I love you. Please help us. I trust you. You can't pray for something specific like god. Let trump win. Maybe that's not the best thing for. I don't know i hope. Trump wins the pray for god knows is right. What will that be and why will it they. We have to have faith that the path is right. We have to believe that tower of believing that will make things happen. All right waited long enough on the copy of the night. I just had to get that off. My chest elections the election process. How did we get where we are today at. Thomas jefferson said that a republican last about two hundred years most countries lasts most most democracies last about two hundred years and they fall apart. So how did we get to. We are today and is it possible to fix it. I don't think it's ever going to be fixed. Sadly because there too much monetary interest in in having it broken too much monetary interest in having the lust of the world at your fingertips in the money that it brings in greed lust for luxuries. We are everything. The bible tells you not today but why did it work for so long sadie to go back to the days of the constitution and it was about six. I believe sixteen years after the constitution was written it was actually ratified during that sixteen year. Period founders had many many. Many meetings was after the constitution was written. Couldn't figure out how to actually piece everything together so it would function not just for now to get away from england not just from now to get away if the rule of pope for all time and they knew that this wouldn't last they created they chose to discuss rather a democracy republic an answer and several other forms of ruler of role as well. They came down to a choice that most people don't like to call it that but it was was called a. m. democratic republic now call a constitutional republic but basically the democracy part lies in the fact that we can vote for the people that are supposed to represent us theoretically and those people do the bidding for us they chose a constitutional republic because democracy fails and you can see that right now they want you know pop the popular vote. That's a democracy the popular vote and one hundred and three hundred million. Excuse me one hundred. Two hundred million people live in the cities and one

Who's WHO's an air hetty American actress, and it was this love story for ages that created our girl tiff trump. Jeff. Jeff. Now tip is always trump's least favorite child and I think it shows she was raised on the West Coast and Calabasas far away from him and the rest of his discussing family. So he rarely saw her and when he did, he had zero interest in her because she's universally considered the least. Attractive of all his children YEP, now, before trump got elected, tiffany was jabbing in the dark arts of being a one hit wonder with her song like a bird. Shall we listen to a quick moment? We should since we're the one we're I broke this story at back in twenty sixteen..

First of all, he's doing his best in for Info infomercial imagine having a car imagine having a house American. The best wife that you bought imagine all of it. You can have like youtube could be good looking enrich like me with A. Girlfriend who screams it before me and streams before you in the speech? Yeah it's what he's doing. It is what he's doing. You can have you can buy yourself a Slovenian wife through Jeffrey Epstein you can have all of these things you can have. It and then says, they accept everyone and that we're with the party that accepts everyone and it starts with rejecting radical. Concept accepting everyone but rejecting radicals also, of course, imagine a world without communism I. Think we haven't Got There I. Think we're not worried about Communism Don Jr more worried about your beard than I. Am about Communism also they wanNA give. Again they're doing brainwashed. They're doing brainwashed cult shit radical liberals and radical Islamists Radical Democrats radical X Y Z Democrats. Radical. Mongering fear fear making sure that in my brain in our brains, we think, of Democrats with. Radical Islamic terrorists and it is again I, say it is the lowest the lowest. It's literally like watching US than infomercial three. Am of that guy who's at the mansion with all of his cars and he says that you can have it to that is what he's doing. It's and it's this work comes coastal elites were all that stuff comes from it's just it's just all subtle language to separate us from them you. From them they're the ones that they're put themselves above you. You have nothing in common with them even though he's the he is the literal equivalency of a coastal elites. He is in his actually a Costa elite, literally what he's born and raised on the coast in New York City with a silver spoon in his fucking rotted mouth. Yeah. And they are slum lords. They are slum lords literal and actual slum lords to people. I I don't know why people are. I know the grossness of John Junior. It's just like fucking overwhelming as it is. He's trump's firstborn child Mamiya and his his by far bar none favorite son. Okay. He's a natural born Putz like trump and at times looks just like his twin but there's actually a younger weirder tastier. Easier praying mantis son hovering around the fringes of trump's inner circle and no, it's not baron. It's actually trump's third burns on eric trump. He seven years younger than Don Jr. but looks the same age okay and is. Seven Times, more useless I think trump only lets him around because he's basically von Panties. Well. Okay. So He's three years younger than Yvonne PGA, and just in case you might be. Normal, enough to believe their family is like other normal non incestuous families. Let me remind you that. Okay. Eric. Proposed his wife Laura. Who looks very similar to us That's right into their mother Yvonna. With a diamond ring from his sister Ivanka's jewelry collections. Beyond. Sibling, love aside I think we only need to take one look at Yvonne car to know that any piece of fine jewelry she's going to design is going to be BARF. And also fucking what is it made in China in in a big sweatshop yet exactly buck off our family lost friends but only pushed us to fight harder. My father played every American. Every city state in town. The he was going to make America. Great it you so much avant. Almost immediately, taxes were slash regulations were cut any economy soar to new heights heights never seen before. We just went through the roof unemployment reached the historic lows especially for black Americans. Hispanic Americans women what renegotiated. Lights were turned back on. handed. Factories across our country. Trillions of dollars. which had been sitting in foreign lands for far too long foreign lands once again, America became the envy of the world. And with that renewed strength came leverage the president demanded that our allies pay their fair share for the defense of the Western world my father rebuilt. The mighty American military might be adding new jets, aircraft carriers. He increased wages for incredible men and women in uniform. He expanded our military defense budget to seven hundred, twenty, one, billion dollars per year. America was no longer week in the eye of the enemy. The moment president trump were special forces kill some deadliest terrorist on planet. The day the Mighty Moab was dropped on a surgeon camps. It Day America took a stance in never be defeated by the enemy. Seoul Mani. Dead. Issue After. The economy The wall, the military trade deals, tax cuts, Supreme Court justices, va hospitals, prescription drugs, school choice right to try moving the embassy to Jerusalem peace in the Middle East. Never any wars were finally ended promises made and promises for the first time we're kept. Now, this is where we get into one a lot of blatant lies light and to. You could argue now we could potentially pick and pick and choose alternative facts, alternative facts, and also really where we do have differing of opinion. So let so if I were to give the benefit of the doubt to, let's just say some of these grand things that he saying which the Democrats do as well. You know for example, trade deals. Okay. The trade deals were made trade deals. The president making. You'RE GONNA make some trade deals trade deals were made. Now we could now disagree of those trade deals were good or bad right. So now we can get into that. It could be a real sort of actual human debate or now we could talk about would even with him saying the lights turned back on and the bullshit and all that kind of lies. Yeah. That was that's all just that's all rhetoric rhetoric but you could then go and go deeper and go well with deregulation we did get some manufacturing back and companies were. Able to. But now we can again argue about deregulation regulation which all of them like to talk about Republicans like deregulation they like taking regulations off because they can make more money and they don't have any rules about where they can dump toxic waste ruined the environment kill whatever they want don't have to disclose to you what might be toxic to you beauty eat anything that they won't be liable. You can't sue them like side effects from drugs side effects for medicine side effects from Axa nations, side effects from foods, anything DIS OH. Certain fabrics that remake match you know man-made products, right? They need to tell you if they cause. And being caused blindness or if they're lamble, that's all regulation if you're walking around in a shirt that a open flame gets. Goals and fucking flame right somebody needs to warn you about that. If they they don't WanNa, have to warn you because then their shirts not gonNA sell. To you into a human candle exactly exactly medical testing animal testing and food. What you eat every single thing in this then we get into climate. The part of you know they don't want to deal with climate climate is a hoax climbing unreal because why? Because then their companies can't make money they are confined to do whether it's Cole or King or you'll hear about viewed.

"Year, the Republican National Convention was filmed remotely to Corona virus. It was held in North Carolina, which is a swing state by the way with no audience except for the last two nights, which included speeches inside the White House rose. Garden. With full audiences seated shoulder to shoulder to shoulder to shoulder with no masks. Rate. So apparently, the Republican party had a contractual obligation to hold the convention in. North Carolina which they tried to break to move the Convention to Florida which is less strict about Corona Virus Aka strict all Aka Phil Republican Morons on a let's out the population death wish type. But the Republican Party was locked into North Carolina. So they got stuck following rules and adhering to safety regulations which we all know they hate fucking doing. So that's why the last two nights of the Convention Work Super Spreader Festivals held on the lawless grounds of the White House whose only regulation Congress, which we know is literally the most useless tension on the entire show. Okay. So we're starting with the most talked about the most exciting the most just the most then Oliver extra the most celebrated Deli. Good Call Speaker of the entire convention and that is miss. Kimberly Guilfoil In case you're new here. Kimberly Guilfoil is fucking horrible who used to be on Fox News but she got fired for being a jazz bucket. Fox News is literally the most predatory place for a woman to work in television and this and air quotes air quote woman got fired because she couldn't stop harassing everyone and their uncle parking lot attendant with Dick pics are thirsty sex talk. After she got fired. She slithered over to the trump family where she captured the attention of fellow thirst. Queen, Donald Trump junior who is married at the time with nine hundred kids and one on the way. But that didn't stop him from cheating of course but eventually, he left his wife for the rotting use condom known Kimberly Guilfoil and now they're fully together and stinking up the Republican Party with each and every appearance that they do so. Here, she is at the Convention screaming during her speech with as brandy would say her come ravaged vocal chords. That may be one of the best introduction you've ever. Good evening. America I'm Kimberly Guilfoil yes. Proud supporter of President Donald J trump rioters must not be allowed to destroy our cities. Human sex drug traffickers should not be allowed to cross our borders just take a look at California the Democrats turned it into a land of discarded heroin needle riots in streets and blackouts in homes in President Trump's America. We like things we build things and we stand for our flag believe in American greatness they want to control what you see and think and believe so that they can control how you live. They want to enslave you to the week dependent liberal victim ideology to the point you will not recognize this country or your style president trump spoke about. America Great. Again, his promise was to put America first and he has president trump commanded the defeat of isis outback dot again Sola Mani, and pave the way for peace in the Middle East. When he negotiated historic trade deals with Canada Mexico Japan and China that beacon signed bride once again, America. Believes in you emancipator lifts, you you are. You are qualified you are powerful and you have the ability to choose your life and determine your destiny. Don't let them kill future generations because they told you and brainwash and fed you live stand for an American president who is fearless who believes in you love's. Country Ladies, and gentlemen, leaders and Fighters Batman. As yet. Literally, just I just WANNA say. She was standing you guys in an empty empty other than I. Guess I would assume a film crew humongous Convention Center in North Carolina it was empty she screaming into the void she's shouting into a fucking void like an insane person who who had a the speechwriter from the help brighter Viola Davis like you are capable. Strong enough you are smart enough. You are good enough, which is in fact in my opinion. So this now this is just the the the almost Bouche the Amas do shuts rape of. The Republic in mastery. As. Roma's do. She mean it's the it's the very first tiny bite of what was yet to come for the rest of the convention because it's the. Right, and now she wasn't the very first speech however, just forever, you guys that are listening. This is just setting up how fucking repulsive this entire convention and everyone in it, every Republican, the Republicans, the ripple. MUST write it down right Now now repulsive sickens. She used words such as emancipation in my opinion in a very calculated and brain washy and Kulti, and also way where people then here here trigger words and they go oh, they're on the right side of the law, which is one of the most. Repugnant puppy parts of the Republicans they use our language repugnant. Republicans do. So, much more than A. than an evening building I really am. I mean Republicans will have to say, Republicans might hug. It might be even stronger repugnant cans lifting you up, and all of this talk is just is riling it. But at the same time, what's incredible about this kind of language is that it is also the same kind of language of pro-life and religious and. Getting into the mindset of a free it's control controlling feel like they're going to mandate writing. They're going to free you. They believe in freedom they believe in less government. It's the language like you're saying of of like the religious right and evangelical. To control you more. Yes. You know what I mean. They pretend that they you if you if you. Accept Jesus Christ. Let's say as your Lord and Savior and but within the confines of one particular Church and then you give your money to that church, you will be free. But what you've that person is now brainwashed into now being completely and utterly controlled by that particular. Institute dogma. she's now. Okay. So in addition to that. The absolute insanity that she was giving and her arms are flailing she's yelling at the as if that, there were five million people listening then then exactly real in real life bat shit batch it. Okay. So obviously the level of ridiculousness with this convention, it's already off the charts. With the amused Douche of the Mammo gave you. We've already in intro you into the absolute utter bat. Shit Ness of this convention, it's like no other Republican National Convention history if you were expecting heads of state and former presidents. It has become clear with the appearance of that screaming Hooker Monster. Will Not be anything dignified to see on the stages of this convention. So with that said, Kimberly Guilfoil was appropriately followed by her disgusting Boyfriend Donald Trump junior high started off the convention. Pre Gaming in his hotel room in an American. Flag Blazer Double Fisting Red Bulls I swear to God he instagram a picture in his. You know North Carolina fucking Ritz Carlton in the most hideous American flag blazer double fisting red bowls like a goon who had crawled out of the sewers of crack. Ville. Be turned fire today. He he I'm surprised. He didn't come from directly killing. An elephant, he probably a Dodo bird I totally dug up a Dodo bird which has been extinct for I don't know how long. So he could just kill that and make it extinct again. A mastodon, a fucking sabertooth tiger anything that he could get that. He could kill and make extinct once again and torture probably went into a cave killed all the hibernating bears in it bathe in their blood, wore their heads and then went back to his hotel room and then went out walked right out to deliver each. America is the greatest country on earth but my father's entire worldview revolves around the idea that we.

"So Republicans say, well, why can we have black lives matter protest and and we can't have you know a evangelical pro-trump it makes sense for why can we have these protests but can't go to church and there there's there's makes that argument makes some sense you know if you get two thousand people in a casino. And there at fifty percent capacity why in a church facility that can accommodate? Ten thousand people couldn't you have two thousand people in there it makes sense that kind of argument makes sense and so I think those those kind of things really you know a pump bring to the center this whole thing of. Individual rights and individual. You know choice in a society versus you know being cognizant in curtailing ones own behavior and one's own freedom voluntarily for the common good and I think some of those Stein, the those things really are coming into stark relief during these two conventions. Yeah definitely, and and there are some political thing I think involved in both I i. You know Ans- differences I think as well. I mean certainly going out and and you know sort of forcibly breaking up those those protests would have been a very significant undertaking I feel because I was at them for at least at least one that I feel very dangerous undertaking. As a you know as opposed to. Outdoor events as opposed to trump event, which was an indoor but absolutely I mean, you see the argument being made both sides when you've seen now the her actually suing the state and Over that same ish over that same thing we just saw that this week Ryan time that they're being treated. Unfairly because for example casinos. Can have more people and operate at fifty percent capacity whereas that building, which was originally casino is limited to fifty people per gathering and and there's you know that's that's going to be an ongoing debate and of course, we're very cynical here in Las Vegas. We say, well, you know the casinos obviously the drivers of the economy we want as many people in here's we can possibly pack in there consistent with safety limits. Because surely, we don't want to have outbreak at one of the casinos and then have a las vegas associated with a super spreader event. As they're called, you know nobody wants that we want people to come here to feel safe to feel increasingly safe as they come here, and whatnot but But yeah, there there's there are these debates that are going on in court in the public domain on TV and at the conventions. Yeah absolutely. Absolutely. All right. Well, think that's probably enough for for this week As again you know will come back to you next Friday and every Friday pretty much. At Rj, politics and you can find us on twitter at at ruinous phonics at Steve's bilious. Make sure you subscribe to our podcast. We'll be back with probably more recapping of the two conventions as they are totally closed is as I said, as we're recording today, not quite done with the Republican national convention but most of the way they're. The whole. Campaigning. Actually. Starts S. Strip Bredon for the Has Been. Years this cycle's been about fourteen years I. The caucuses were six months like, are you kidding me? That was that was a lifetime ago I can hardly even remember those days to be honest with you. I'm like Yeah I'm like writing letters like a soldier would you know to home to my? For? The it's all going to change. Everything's going to be totally different. You're never. You're not going to see people anymore. It's just it's while it's wild but anyway.

"That certainly the complaint that the Democrats would make is that you know the attempts to block you know mail in voting same day registration, those types of things that improve people's ability to vote and to register you know the Democrats basically say will Republicans don't want that because they want us few people to to participate as possible and so yeah, I think the Democrats see big huge cast net in terms of Biden being pulled to the left I mean I guess he probably does feel like he has to make some sort of concessions I mean he's been meeting his ease adopted a lot of financial policy that was similar to search warrant had he has been kind of. Meeting with those folks. But I don't know how much I by the narrative that they own him. He won I mean you know if. I just kind of feel like it doesn't make any sense that they that they own have. No he he won and he did so early and pretty pretty quickly I should say you know wants to people actually started voting. So I do a couple of primaries but yeah, you're right. If it was if it Sanderson de the target is obvious but I think with Biden the year you're sort of you know trying to create like you said, sort of a bit of Straw man kind of a situation where you can you. Attach to all these of bogeyman. The Nancy Pelosi's you know that type of thing. I'll tell you being at these events. This week for the Republican stuff, I will say that the number one thing that I've heard from trump's staffers from volunteers from people who just showed up at these things at the campaign offices and I just wanted Henderson one in score sorta close at Northern Vegas Summerlin tonight is all the economy I mean that that seems to be the one that is sticking. You know this this sort of idea that trump. Had A great economy before covid and again big once it's over whatever the way the people explain it they'll be a vaccine but I think you're totally right. You know there's a vaccine for this one but with the next one's coming and the next one after that in the next one after that. But you know I do think the economy's one that stock there's an interesting one here local heave, which is essentially. You've seen a lot of Republicans bring back up the school choice There's actually GONNA be a rally for that. Tonight I know Dan Rutz running for Congress, a bunch of assemblyman. Bunch of other folks folks I talked to last night who were at this trump event who volunteer say that's a big one and basically that's kind of been rekindled a little bit locally and we'll see how big a how big this event is. But that's kind of an interesting one that is not on the national radar that's been kind of rekindled locally I found in these last couple of days I think because of what's going on with the schools here? You. Know we had some trouble at school started this week stuff for people to get online. So I'm interested to see if that's if that really does become sort of a local issue again as I understand it that used to have you know those those savings accounts here and have since gotten rid of them and the Republicans it seems like bring it back every cycle in their deepened the minority and they're not he's not gonNA cut through. But I you know I had folks I had trump delegates tell me that this is GonNa be a big issue here locally, and that's something that I just well I guess we kind see but. Yeah. No I think the economy I think fat. Again talking to Republicans I I have not nobody has told me. That they're concerned about the. They're concerned about how to get. You know how we're going to get out of that part I mean I don't know I. Don't know if it's if the sort of narratives at the Republicans are pushing his working but yet there's no I mean certainly I've talked to folks who? Didn't have their masks or you know were packed into tight buildings weren't weren't concerned about it and were talking about you know what? What you know how do we get to the next step? It was all when we get there. Could be great. Trump's great thousand. And that's the thing I mean it requires you to imagine a reality that does not exist and and while you know people tout the power positive thinking. And an always have an positive thinking probably is a good philosophy, but you know so is so as recognizing reality and dwelling in dealing with reality. And that is that the the coronavirus is really does exist You know there are a lot of Republicans say well, the risks are over height. If you're if you're a young person, there's less risk and statistics bear that out somewhat it's not that if your child or your teenager, you can't get it is at the odds are that you you won't get it and you know if you have underlying health conditions, you're more vulnerable to it than statistics bear that out as well but but that brings up a really interesting point, which is this whole. Dichotomy between. The individual and society the collective, the common good and that that is a big difference. I think between the two parties because you know Republicans are more likely and I'm generalizing here, I admit. But they're more likely to embrace the individual as as you know, somebody who individuals ought to be able to make decisions for themselves, and if I choose to go out to a restaurant or you know go out. To a casino where there's a crowd that's a risk that I should be able to take because I'm an adult in. This is a free country and you know I'm I'm making that decision maybe not a very well informed choice but I'm making that choice and I should be able to do that whereas Democrats. Say Look you know what I wear my mass not for me but for other people I do. It as as a sign of respect for others and to slow the spread of this disease on I want other people to get it I'm cognizant that you know I. I have no problem going to my office but you know what? My colleague two doors down you know lives with someone who has a compromised immune system and I feel for him and and for his family situation. So I gotta take that into account. And so you're seeing that icon me I. Think you know in these events for example, you covered the event over at the hotel where. Evangelical for trump got together and there were some precautions that were taken there and and they. And they had you know put some some protocols in place but there was still the possibility of community spread in that. In that event, these black lives matter protests that are going on where there are a lot of people in close proximity, some of whom are wearing masks, some of whom aren't those gatherings regardless of the purpose of what they were called. They are risk factors for spreading this disease and and.

"Think that's the most you're going to get out of a Republican speaker out of this convention in terms of you know, let's not let our differences divide us you know those types of. Sentiments and then you had the vice president who I thought gave a very sort of traditional Republicans speech of you know you. We can have law and order and we can you know make life better for our African American. You know neighbors that type of stuff you know who who attacked bite in quite a lot saying you know it's Biden Racist Biden came up with the cream, the crime bill you. Know who's who's locked away thousands of people call her and stuff like you know things like that. It was that I thought was more kind of like hardened like party political speech whereas you know when you have especially the president and members of his family, we should say we record Thursday afternoon. So as a recording, this president, a spoke by the time this aired will have spoke we hope nothing horrible. Or crazy or anything happens it will change the context of this conversation but that's that's sort of that disclaimer. Anyway I thought I thought pants was you know just a pretty standard kind of you know the other side's pretty bad. You know traditional sort of moral Republican type values. We should also say to that you know the Republicans, are saying that DNC's doom and gloom it, I don't I didn't i. Don't think that that's necessarily true either we're not trying to say that I mean there was plenty of sort of uplifting moments I. Think in both sides, you had the Republicans obviously pardon John Ponder, who's local guy who a lot of people know for his work with you know people who recently got an out of jail and then you win the Democrats was a lot of talk about you know helping. Immigrants Finding a path for citizenship in strengthening healthcare, you know helping rebuild the middle class that type of stuff building back better I think is the Biden statement. There's been a little bit optimism little bit of. Negativity on both sides, but nonetheless, I still have felt watching them just with how things describe it. I saw really funny tweet earlier this week Dave. Weigel from Washington Post and he basically said and I I've all all my life. I've heard Republicans do this and I never thought of this. He said we're all totally used to it, but it's a big difference between the parties when Republicans use a phrase like democratic states there's been throughout this Seattle Portland and therefore Washington Oregon California. These are the enemies. These are examples of socialist sort of utopias that are going to be you know thrust upon the world if Joe Biden wins, you just never see Democrat say the same thing about a republican state and he's basically like you don't see a Democrat. You know talk about how backward or whatever Mississippi they just don't do that. There's not any talks about Republican states like we don't want to end up like you know. Kansas or whatever like. I just I had something I've thought of he said and I thought of haven't been able to get on my head for like three days is that you that just doesn't happen like it just does not a two way street Democrat states are bad fine. Sure. But nobody's out there saying sort of Republicans states are bad on the other side. Yeah exactly and and you're right because you know the the what the Democrats say is you know we WANNA make democratic red states blue we WANNA you know we're looking at Georgia we're looking at Texas where we're trying to influence them to get them over on our side now like Oh. You know we don't WanNA end up like Texas or. Mississippi ear. Any of these deep red states that the because I it's just not that that's just not a phrase that or a an attack line that works very well, and for Republicans you know they're very good at taking like for example, the quote unquote. San Francisco Liberal. you know Nancy Pelosi what she's from San. Francisco I. Mean I'm old enough to remember when the Republicans held their convention in San Francisco mean it was a great. Any is far as I'm concerned not great. American city and. And you know nowadays I it it you know you say San Francisco to Republicans in it invokes all sorts of member of. Ideas of lawlessness and and people you know naked parades through the streets and cultural clashes and all of that Kinda stuff and and there's this negative association a with it whereas Democrats I I I think you know don't they don't do the same thing. They don't talk about Mississippi values or whatever. Because I think they're afraid of losing those kind of voters they want to appeal to the widest swath of voters that they. Could possibly appeal to and so instead of alienating the people live in Mississippi, they try to say, Hey, you know what you. You might be surprised at what you have in common with the the democratic beliefs. So you know we're trying to create a big tent party here with his room for Alexandria, Cossio Cortes and Joe Biden. Now, the now the knock, of course during the Republican convention is that you know Joe Biden. If he if he at one point was a free thinking more conservative moderate Democrat those days are over. He's been taken over by the by the liberal left and you know all of that kind of thing, and so it's the rhetoric. The rhetoric absolutely doesn't match I mean I've seen millions of times people ride in email or on the pardon me on twitter saying liberalism is a mental disease I don't think I've ever read somebody saying conservatism is a mental disease they might say something like conservatism is based on. Greed and self interest or something like that. But they don't accuse their opponents of being literally insane for espousing a certain of viewpoint and you do see that on the on the on the Republican. Side in I think it. It goes down to this. This nature of you know they want to capture what it is to to be an American. They can circumscribe patriotism in the American character to include their party but exclude the Democratic Party they're to they're going to win a certain percentage of votes from bat alone. Their ability to say, we are the Party of America of good American character of good American values. The Democrats are not they're the Party of socialism and And they admire for dictators like Castro and We'll go CIA says and all that and they're the other and and they can high Salei folks are based on that alone. I mean they you saw the you know when they said the Democrats had taken under God out of the pledge allegiance at the Democratic convention. Well, it's on tape of course, didn't do it. They recited the pledge. As it has been written since the nineteen fifties by the way because under God was not in the original pledge of allegiance, it was inserted during the red scare the nineteen fifties when they also put in God, we trust on our money and so the Democrats faithfully recited the nineteen fifties forward version of the pledge in. So they didn't exclude God, but a lot of these things with conservatives. They, they want to argue against a vision of the Democrats that they themselves have created. It doesn't comport necessarily with reality. It's an exaggeration of reality, but they want to argue against that because it's easier than arguing against the reality I mean the reality is that Joe Biden is not a socialist. He is not an irreligious person. He is not a know this This callous person doesn't care about jobs as they would like him to be. So it's necessary to create a character church against which to run so that they can run against the straw man that they have created rather than the reality because that's harder and requires more nuance and if there's one thing American voters do not embrace I. Think we can all agree. Especially, with the past thirty years, it is any sort of nuance. Yeah? Yeah. No, that's absolutely right I. don't see any Republicans who who feel that. They can win over or should tree even try and win over you know folks who would support. Alexandria cortazar or somebody who's on the far left in Warren supporters or you know things like that you just you don't see that I mean their strategy has remained pretty much the same way you know we're talking to folks on the ground here I mean the the campaign is quite clear and they will they will you know they'll tell you even what they're doing, which is essentially you know they want to rally the base. They're still running sort of base kind of campaign where you get the basic cited, you get them out you and then you depress the other sites sort of core base or whatever you keep them from going to the pulse through Las your time if I'm being perfectly on..

"The news on the Republicans have had their turn. This week and they are broadcasting from all sorts of different places including the White, house where president trump is scheduled tonight to deliver his acceptance speech for the Republican nomination and I, assume he's going to accept I'm pretty going under the assumption that he's going to accept that nomination and And be the Republican nominee and so the I. It's interesting too because they the way these conventions have had to be structured. is completely different than all the past conventions There's no bigger arenas. There's no huge crowds gathered together. There's no cheering throngs of people. you know laughing and giving applause at the applause lines. It's It's weird too because you you anticipate it. Right you somebody gets off a really good line that you know a speechwriter worked really hard on your. You're waiting for the crowd, the roar, the crowd, and it just doesn't come. So it's weird having been to a convention person covered in person. And having watched this one remotely mostly on C. Span is my preferred because span doesn't cut away and give us anchors. Commentary and all that you just get the raw feed the whole thing it really it really is odd it's a much different convention in past years and it takes a little getting used to I. Think. Yeah it's been really strange situation I. Think I've had a little bit of a different experience this weekend that I've been at local Republican Watch parties during it. So even though one of them had you know all of like eight people in but last night I was with group probably about fifty and it felt a little bit a little bit more similar in a sense that yes, there was a there was a crowd so to speak that like cheered when they talked about. Peace in the Middle East for for example the. Peace Agreement between the U A E and Israel was something that really got people excited and then you saw other. Of Lines that were just kind of muted responses to it's been really an interesting way to see how both parties have kind of adapted to this I one thing I think the production value for for both for the most part it's been pretty good in terms of like commercials in terms of like little clips in adds little segments that they've done. You had on Peyot come in from Jerusalem which was a surprise and an issue for a lot of Democrats but it's it's it's an interesting sort of back and forth between the two the differences between the two of really rich dark for me as well I think. I heard from Republicans that the Democrats are all gloom and doom all that stuff in you've seen Republicans, come out and say you know, hey, wasn't before covid. Back there at some, it's each been wild for me to watch because I like I said I've been at I've been at events this week last week we were talking about how I didn't get to you know we don't get to go to events. We don't get to hear from people, but I have heard from people now mostly volunteers and they liked that that is how they are talking. That's how Republicans locally trump surrogates trump delegates, trump staffer stats, how they're talking. You know after cove it who do you want to rebuild this this country you know trump, of course, the Yada and The Democrats have an interesting response which to me makes a whole lot of sense which is okay. But how do we get to the after covert part? You've got Cova killing a thousand people a day. You've got hurricanes hitting the southeast you've got wildfires hitting the West you've got civil unrest all throughout the country particularly in the Midwest now. Another police shooting of a of a black man and so. I get it I totally get. You know I think I think it works I think a lot of people don't WanNa see doom and gloom alda and do a sort of a rosier future to look ahead to I. You know most of the Republicans that I spoke to felt that the conventions been going absolutely great and of course all the Democrats terrible and you know the roles reverse but I have I have been struck. By just sort of the difference is because you you have seen. Both of them have sort of a similar approach in they're parading people who you might not always here from the Republicans several Democrats you know they're looking for people of color you know to sort of counteract the narrative that you know there's nothing for color in of Party, and then in the Democrats, you saw them bring out some some never-trumpers type Republicans as well to say, Hey, you folks in the middle you come this way this time, and so that's that's been sort of similar other than that. I think the two conventions have been completely opposite basic your different countries like I mean I think that's clear and I think that's that's sort of the the point is, is that it is know. Republicans Democrats if you just watch these and you didn't know anything else, you would think it was totally two different countries they were talking about. And a couple of things about that I mean I think first of all, you know yeah I I would love to be after cove it. I would love to be done with this. You know I think we're all sick of it. We've been cooped up at home I six months every day like the next. It looks like it's going to be that way for the foreseeable future. It's like we're all we've all been sentenced to house arrest and and nobody wants that I just don't know what posts Kovic E. S. I just don't know when we will get there or how we will get there because I think now this has changed. Not only the way we respond to this individual of virus at this individual time but the way we're going to respond to all future viruses Going forward. So I think I don't know that there is a post covert world. In which these kind of precautions aren't going to become common everyday things going forward in in every flu season, we're going to have to gear up. For something like this The other thing that I think is is you're absolutely right that the differences between the two conventions could not be more stark but I think even within just the Republican. Convention will some the things I've been reading about it? a that the Republicans themselves alternate between the doom and gloom and the optimism I mean they wanna have the optimism most of Ronald Reagan who who you know shining city on a hill and and all that the optimism of George W. Bush he was very big on that. But at the same time that isn't I think they need they have this need to tell you that if the Democrats take over were going to be the country is GonNa go to hell and we are going to be in in dire straits and it's GonNa be a terrible housekeeper of socialism and everything else, and so it's like almost two channels broadcasting simultaneously on the same wavelength basically saying. You should be afraid of the Democrats are gonNA, Destroy America, but you know what are better days or just around the corner? As long as you elect president trump and so it's it's kind of a discordant message that they're sending But I think at this time you know they need to broadcast on both of those channels because in you know there are a lot of voters who are motivated by fear and dislikes, the other side and and you gotTa tell them. Here's what to be afraid of here's why you should dislike them. But there's a lot of voters who also want to hear positive message and so you need to get those two and so instead of sticking with one particular thing I, think they're trying to do both at the same time and sometimes it comes off as as as kind of discordant. Yeah and I think it's been really you've noticed a really really big difference in sort of the keynote kind of major speakers because to me watching. Donald trump junior watching kimber legal. The first night. That was very doom and I mean, you know lot of memes tweets about you know the volume level the. Show. Made me think like, okay you're at eleven just. Keep this level. Response and don't think that'll work but you know that can to Malania, trump who I thought of all the speakers so far in the RNC has been the most sort of like you know, let's all come together I..

"I talk about something else that really frustrated me about the Republican National Convention. Are Really. Really disliked the use. Of the official duties of the president and the White House itself which. Is Our house. It's paid for by our money in such a political fashion, not to mention the secretary of state like that. Ran Right over me I cannot. Articulate how? Much. I hated all that. You know what I think was almost helpful about it. It is such a clear and caps elation of how Donald trump orients himself in the role of the president. that this is not his duty, it is his entitlement. This is not his job it is his country now. And I think using the White House using the secretary of state using. Powers of the presidency. Anna Political Convention. So clearly previews for us what another four years of Donald Trump would look like. Because there are no limits there there are actual. Laws preventing him from doing what he did and he did it anyway. This is the person who's preaching law and order to US every day. There are actual laws that say you cannot do what he did and he did it anyway and so. He's telling us he is and who he will continue to be and what the trajectory of that will look like and we should believe him. Yeah. It's just I feel like it's so disrespectful of the office but I don't know why that it doesn't necessarily surprise me. It's like George will's said like he has no bottom expected to get worse but the just the flagrancy of it, the hail to the chief, the swearing people, Anna citizens, and not telling them what you're going to use the video footage of. Is just. It's so infuriating. And disrespectful to the office disrespectful to everybody who held it before in just disrespectful to the country. I. Don't know how to put it like it's not yours. It doesn't belong to you but you're right I mean that's not how he sees it. He sees it as. His and his alone another aspect of the convention and I can't believe I'm going to bring this up because you know I despise talking about it was this theme of abortion as top priority. And I thought it was really interesting. How throughout the first three nights at least you had from speaker after speaker this almost explicit. Hey Hey. I know you're really uncomfortable with Donald Trump, the man. I know you are Doesn't matter. Because of abortion. Over and over and over again. And Look..

"The hurricane in Texas and Louisiana, and the first three nights of the Republican National Convention as happened last week the schedule of the convention does not work very well with our schedules. So we're GONNA talk about the first three nights that we've watched. We will watch tonight we're recording on. Thursday the final night with hopefully many of you on hot mic and if there's anything else we want to mention about that we will do so on media or on the show next week. But today we're going to cover what we've seen so far I think we have a pretty good feel for what the thesis is from the RNC and so will dive into that for you get started. We do want to talk about. Hurricane, Laura. This was a category, four hurricane that hit the coast of Texas and Louisiana, and we are just sending all our love and light to that area of the country. These storms are getting more intense where here celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and you know the governors are finding more intense ways of saying no for real you guys you have to evacuate and it sounds like people listened. There will still be a massive amount of property damage and there are already reports that several Americans have lost their lives and so we're just thinking about the people of Texans and Louisiana, right now we're. Also thinking about the people of Kenosha Wisconsin and particularly Jacob Blake in his family and everyone who is struggling in the unrest that has followed the shooting of Jacob Blake you know i. have been really moved several of the email newsletters that I follow showed a particular business owner boarding up his business and then painting something beautiful on the front and talking about how he really wants people to have a different view of his town. This is a hard moment because reporting on it is challenging it is easy to say. We. have protests that turned violent. And something that Sarah talked about on our instagram morning news briefing that I think we should pick up on here is that it's not entirely accurate to say that protests turn violent. What is more accurate is to say that often protests are an opportunity for people who wished to do violence to show up and bring that to the place where protest is happening and. That certainly seems to be what's taken place in. Kenosha. Wisconsin. As we have this seventeen year old who went as part of a militia effort from another state and I don't want to talk about his name or give him any moment in the spotlight here because he walked into another state dressed to be a participant in a real world video game and committed homicide. So Is really important to recognize that he is not a symptom of a protest turn violent. He is someone who brought violence to a place where protests was happening I. Just I feel like when people talk about this. In. particularly in that way, I, Kinda, WanNa say if you've been to a protest like I went to a protest in Paducah, there were some teenagers who were kind of hyped up on the energy afterwards they drove around and they broke some windows. Are we one cohesive day am I responsible for their behavior? Is The black lives matter movement responsible for their behavior? Even though they say explicitly, we are decentralized nonviolent movement. I just think about talking about protests as it is this cohesive group and everyone moves as one is not you know it's Kinda. How I feel about conspiracies human beings don't work like that where. A lot of things. Cohesive is often not one of them and so I just I i. wish we sort of Strip that language or the protests turned violence. There was violence and there were peaceful protests and let's make sure that we are being clear about what happened where and the factors that led to the violence, and the fact that there were peaceful protests before. Or the fact that there were police officers present what was their role? I mean I just think there's all these inputs into a violent act and to try to reduce it down to an easy storyline. Even when it serves, you know your political purpose as the violence from the Bugaboo Movement in Oakland and the violence here in Kenosha does like it would just have to be really careful and I totally agree. particularly. About this kid because that's what he was a seventeen year old is a child and so I just feel like we need to be really careful when we're talking about this now I will say Beth. I don't feel there was a lot of careful language in the first three nights of the Republican National Convention particularly when it comes to this idea of violent protests and quote unquote law and order. Now and I WANNA be a realist. There are forms of protests that are not peaceful and that happens and I don't WanNa be accused of or actually denying that but I do WanNa be clear around the fact we understand this in lots of context that there are certain types of activity that create conditions that incite. That invite criminals into an easy opportunity and yes, protests carries those risks and a lot of the ACTA protest is deciding the message that I have to share is worth whatever risk comes to me. As part of sharing it and I, think I feel very manipulated because it was clear to me watching the RNC that I am the intended audience for it. I'm almost forty I live in the suburbs I'm a white woman with two small children. And I felt. Coming through the screen this hand extended to say don't you want everything in your life to stay as easy as possible?.

"I would say at this point I started getting. This is where I'm going to coach me through this Span Mine Zaidi started to Roy I love night one. I'm having a great time. I'm seeing these speeches and hearing the stories about Joe Biden what he is the right person to meet the moment, and then I start getting two thousand and four feels in hopes that I had watching the DNC two, thousand, four time the story. By John Kerry, we seem so united. It seemed like obvious choice to vote and Kerry because we were in this war of Iraq it's going in the wrong direction. There were no weapons of mass destruction and I had that hope and then feeling hope again and then I get scared. Well that just means we need to get to work. True. Okay. great to work to work I mean, there's there is no between now and we're GonNa get to talk about this a lot later between now and election day we all have work. So it's to jump on fivethirtyeight and be like, what are the chances what's going to happen? That's just they're just telling you what the polls. That's All they're saying is where the snapshot of the race was four days right and people. Head right like I listening to stock. This listened to slow burn about David Duke Fascinating because the parallels between David Duke in Donald Trump are so similar. Only difference was David Duke didn't come from all these millions of dollars to build a amplify his voice, and where again people didn't think he was a win his seat that he ended up winning because the polls were saying one thing but people don't want to actively. Admit that they were going to be voting for whites the the the hidden trump voter is actually not as a meme. There's actually no data of the hidden trump voter. He he that's the we I I need to lose so that we can put this rumor bad. I. Feel like because then we'll look at twenty, six, thousand, four, what it was, which was a close race way. A party was seeking a third term and so it was never gonNA blow outrage. There's always going to be close because those third terms of almost are so rare and. And then he outperformed his polls that night outperformed meaning within the margin of Airy. That that wind was within he needs silver had him at a one third one and three. That's not that's not that terrible shot that while some people I think their their prediction markets like New York, times or something good way off. A ninety percent even one in ten one in ten things happen. Yeah. So that is not one hundred percent and those like a high number but it can. But it means that he outperformed his polls by one percent rate or that means one percent of Clinton, voters stayed home because they thought she was going to rape. It's that's actually not that much of a fluke. It's not actually the crazy anomaly that everyone still treats around it just wasn't upset. So point is were great. and. Again speaking of all the work that needs to be done. Again, we uphill battle against fucking James Comey which. This guy till this day like man he's got the worst one of the worst footnotes in history like you know fuck your kitchen scale. And then also to. Russia and DISAG-. So it was a blitzkrieg of terrible things that could go rhino the ended up happening and again she did win the popular vote but you know so there is that Jack Lean I'm GONNA get her last name wrong as the elevator operator who nominated Joe Biden, love it, and like I done like I, just my heart strings were pulled in so many different directions and again the contrast like he's just being nominated by an everyday citizens she was a black woman..

I just can't imagine based on what we're hearing about what's going to happen. at the Republican convention that it's going to be any anything other than that. and. Anyway. So they have a very specific that's going to be laid out. What is their agenda? On jobs, what is their agenda to help business? What is their agenda to increase wages and enact more fair trade deals to protect American jobs? What is? How do we bring manufacturing back?

"A difficult decision for him to take the moment and Really say what he thought, and I am very appreciative that he took the moment and really said he thought. I understand and respect the tradition of presidents not saying a whole lot about their successors and I think in a normal universe that is appropriate. And I appreciate him acknowledging explicitly that this is not a normal universe and I thought everything he said was so searing because it was true and because it wasn't hyped up his words still felt somewhat restrained even though they were. Accurate I read a description of the speech this warning that was. I think it was from Ryan. Linda he said you know he accused President trump of corruption no I don't think he accused him. I just think he observed that's what's happening. I think it was all more observation than accusation. I don't know a person who could have listened to that speech with anything approaching an open mind and disagreed with a lot of what they heard in terms of the characterization of this administration. It's just true. There are people who are going to decide to vote for him again. Anyway. But I thought he a hit a home run in terms of accurately describing what is happening and I'm sure that was hard and probably sad I can imagine an element of grief for him to in having to use his time that way. and. My Imagination, the Obama household. There's been like an ongoing struggle with Michelle and Sasha, and me being like you gotta get out there and say something and being like I'm a place is not my place or I'm biding my time because I think there's an element of like because he's been so restrained from speaking out when he finally took the moment to say. I've been watching is what's happening it was more impactful. The reporting is that he was offered the final slot and win the nomination went to Senator Kamala Harris. He said, no, there is this sort of I want to pass the torch to her to this next generation who I haven't always been happy with him. I had a friend that said I don't think using his voice on immigration segment was appropriate because of his deportation policy and I think his ability to sort of say, I know you always have been happy with me. And I'm not saying I haven't done everything, right but this man is a threat and we can all see it and he I love the moment where he's like they wanna convincing your vote doesn't matter and it does. And I think his ability to just like you said sort of it's like this. Moral Authority combined with this cool-headed observation I think being in front of that I think he was a constitutional center in Philadelphia he's you know don't forget he was a constitutional law professor in just he's also exceptionally good at doing that. Let's doom way out let's zoom way way out I. Mean You know I. Love History, and so that moment where he was like, can you imagine how hopeless they felt challenging the Jim Crow South can you imagine how hopeless and how unachievable it looked to get women? The right to vote? Can you imagine that ability? Of To say a little bit of like don't you dare complain and be cynical in think this is too hard or we can't make an impact when these people your ancestors, the people who've come before you challenge slavery and fought for universal suffrage and took down the Jim Crow south that ability to say like you are a part of something and it has been hard in the past and it is hard now but that does not mean we'd stop. I think he's so good at that. You know he's just so good at channel that historical view. What's at stake but not from A. Like a fear mongering perspective that like we still have. We. Still have a chance to do something great and I think it's going to be this next generation that carries us across the finish line and so many issues. She thought it was so brilliant. I think we needed somebody of his stature. We needed a sitting president because what are we supposed to do? You Know Fret because donald trump shreds every norm and be like, oh no, he's shredding the norms. Whatever will we do like? Sometimes the answer to that is to push back in a similar fashion. You know I don't think it's an accident and representative John Lewis's eulogy he called the Filibuster. Relic of the Jim Crow South like I think that he uses those moments to say. Like it's time to push harder it's time to take on this next challenge and I just I thought he did a phenomenal job. Reminded me a little bit of District Judge Reeves about on the nightly nuance recently the case of Jamison versus mcclendon. And this district judge made I think a very similar calculus depressant Obama. He said this is my forum. There are normal constraints on this forum. And I'm GonNa step outside of those because it's an abnormal time and in his opinion, this was a qualified immunity case where a police officer had pulled a man over a black man in Mississippi driving home to South Carolina from Arizona was driving a Mercedes three Mississippi and got pulled over by the police officer because the temporary tag on the car that he had purchased two weeks before was folded where you couldn't see some of the numbers and instead of saying, Hey, this is folded fix it. The police officer kept him there on the side of the road for almost two hours. Lied to him caused about five thousand dollars in damage to the vehicle because he basically ransacked it searching it put his physical body inside the vehicle. I mean, it was awful. It's just awful encounter. Between a citizen and a police officer and this district judge began his opinion with this list of activities that Clarence Jameson, the plane had not been doing the you know he he wasn't asleep in his apartment that was Brianna Taylor, and it's an entire lists like that of so many people who've lost their lives to police violence, and then he says, you know, thankfully, this officer didn't kill this man in this roadside stop but we have to understand that from the perspective of this black man who was pulled over by this white police officer in Mississippi that was the risk and this encounter that he would lose his life in it. And so the law not permit me to allow this case to go forward because qualified immunity as it exists under the lots day applies here but that's unacceptable and we need to stop and that to me is the essence of leadership and that's why when President Obama began and you could tell that he was going to directly take trump on. I thought you know this is another moment where what we do just isn't good enough and I think as much as people with a more activist personality than mine find those deliberate of I'm giving a speech or I'm writing an opinion that way of protest to be insufficient and Gratifying to me, it is incredibly powerful when you completely embody the existing structure and use that opportunity to say it's not okay. It's not acceptable. It's not good enough. It's not even what it's supposed to be in a lesser version of ideal and we have to speak out and do something about that I'm really inspired by that especially as a white person who thinks so often what is my role in anti-racist work and as a person who doesn't have that activists fire to see leaders like President Obama and District Judge Reeves using the positions that they had to say, those words with such gravity means a lot to me. I several semesters of Spanish in college and do you know how useful they are to me in my life right now? They are not because while I could make a list.

"On these issues especially when it comes to the security of our community. There's a clear choice in this election and Jewish especially do not believe that Donald Trump has the best interest of our community in mind he has Jewish family members. He's certainly been friendly to Israel is strengthened that relationship. So how does that square? There's no question. He has Jewish family members. He's also married and he's done said many misogynistic things. So that alone does not qualify him as what I would consider to be someone who's been particularly good for the Jewish community I look at the numbers and I look at the unprecedented rise in white nationalist propaganda or anti Semitic attack and the words that. Come out of his mouth better clear signs to anti-semites to racist to bigots that he is their ally whether it is identifying anti-semites white nationalist marching Charlottesville as very fine people or calling the extremists that marched in Michigan with swastikas very good people that was earlier this year or hiring someone recently, Sebastian Gorka who is affiliated with the Nazi party in Hungary? When it comes to Israel. Donald Trump. Has Been Long on symbolism and short on substance. Yes. He moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and we recognize that Jerusalem is, of course, the capital of Israel. But the substance matters and when you look at the record of Joe Biden who with President Obama finalized unprecedented historic thirty eight. DOLLAR AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL PROVIDING FOR AID for the next ten years, and you look at the security issues that Israel faces. Actually Donald. Trump has not been that great for Israel. Let's go back to that you an arms embargo that you just mentioned it is set to expire in October and the trump administration is demanding snap back sanctions go into a fact do Democrats agree with this? What would the Biden Administration do in this case? What would the approach to? Iran be? In the Obama Administration. which in many ways, Joe Biden was very much a part of it was a part of these decisions with regard to Iran the goal with Iran was and would, of course, continue to be to ensure that Iran does not acquire nuclear weapon. The way that the Obama Administration went about it, which I believe would be continued in. Abidin. Administration. Is To exhaust all diplomatic options to ensure. That's not the case. The JCP away was the combination of successful diplomacy but that didn't happen in a vacuum. It was the result of years of sanctions against Iran forced Iran back to the negotiating table given your experience with Kamala Harris as her national security adviser. Do you foresee a vice president Harris exerting as much power in foreign policy decisions as Biden and his predecessors? Well. Having served at the national. Security. Adviser. For Comma Harris I can tell you that she is a values driven leader. Then that includes on national security she serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee. She's been an integral member of that committee in its three year investigation of Russia's role interfering our twenty sixteen elections. She deeply values and appreciates debt breath of the US as a relationship we traveled to Israel together and I saw that firsthand I know just how capable he is at leading on these issues I can't speak to specifically what role other than vice president she would have in. This administration and what role that would take on, but I know that if in fact. Joe. Biden decided that she would lead on foreign policy and national security. She would be a fantastic leader whose priorities would align with the Jewish community and again I've seen it firsthand as it relates to Israel I've also seen it firsthand as it relates Taro insecurity when attacks started targeting our community including in California in twenty seventeen, she led a bi partisan effort to condemn take measures against the rise of hate crimes, the white nationalism, and I was proud of that work but it was really. Driven directly by her and it was a bipartisan effort. It was a resolution that passed unanimously in the Senate and as someone who had just arrived in the Senate just a few months before it really was a demonstration of not only her leadership by her ability to work in a bipartisan manner to get things done that really matter and for her the security of our community was hair amount. So I'm glad you pivoted to domestic issues here and I want to explore that a little bit more before we go. In fact, some polls rank Israel Iran, Russia foreign policy issues as. Really at the bottom of the priority list for many if not most Jewish voters and instead gauge healthcare gun, violence, social security Medicare those are the key issues that Jewish voters care about do those mayor how you view Jewish voters priorities. The issue that you're referring to, which we also see in polling is when you ask Jewish voters, what are the most important issues to you when deciding which candidate support they will overwhelmingly choose domestic policy issues starting with healthcare to include gotten safety climate, change, economic issues, and other domestic policy issues impacting our life and our own security to include anti-semitism. because. Those are the issues where there's the biggest difference between the two parties between Democratic candidates and Republican candidates. But we also know that when it comes to Israel, which, yes, does fall to the bottom of that list that doesn't mean it's not a priority for Jewish voters. We know that Jewish voters overwhelmingly consider themselves to be pro. Israel but it's not an area where there is as much distinction frankly between the parties and that is a good thing. Supportive Israel remains strongly bipartisan. So I think that it is what we consider to be a threshold issue. Of course candid. It have to be supportive of Israel in order to have support of Jewish voters. And the overwhelming majority of Democrats and Republicans alike meet that threshold. So voters are going to the polls making their decisions on issues where there's the biggest distinction and that is access to affordable healthcare that is gun safety that is the security of our own community, and frankly at this stage, a weather, our leaders share our values and it's pretty clear that Donald Trump does not. Some of these priorities have been addressed during this week's program and Gabby giffords opening speech on Wednesday highlighted the importance of gun violence. The testimony of the daughter of Corona virus victim very moving heartbreaking highlighted healthcare.

"It's a public life spanning nearly five decades. A life of triumph laced with tragedy, both of which he shares an equal measure in his final quest to win the White House, that journey culminating this week as he accepts the Democratic Party's nomination for. Joseph. Robin by junior was elected to the Senate. From Delaware at age twenty, nine, a long shot bid. Few thought he could win it was nineteen seventy-two on his way to a new career in politics. But soon, shattered by heartbreak Christmas shopping and a tractor trailer broadsided them. In one incident. To his wife Nelia and thirteen month old daughter Naomi died his sons hunter and Bo injured. Took his oath of office in a hospital room. I faced like many of you defining moment. Walk away from public life. Or? I chose to stay. He later married a teacher. Jill Jacobs and had another daughter. Newman deserves one great love let alone too. Early on in the Senate, his ambition burn bright long before anyone outside Delaware had any idea who he was a point made clear at the nineteen eighty democratic national convention instead my name Wyden Senator Biden, he said who in the Hell is he? Seven years later he sought national. Office. For the first time a fresh face in a crowded field. Buyer way he dropped out of the race before the voting began after revelations plagiarizing lines of a speech from British Labour leader Neil Kinnock I made some mistakes. I'm a big boy. Sometimes you win. Sometimes. Lose. That searing loss shaped Biden as he settled into the Senate. But he soon suffered a traumatic scare with a brain aneurysm in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight. Recovered and continued climbing the ladder of seniority as chairman of the Judiciary Committee. He presided over the Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Clarence. Thomas that riveted the nation in Nineteen ninety-one from the beginning Ann at this moment until the end, the presumption is with you his treatment of one time Thomas Eight Anita Hill. Accused Thomas of sexual harassment stirred controversy and it's still seen by some as a stain on a thirty six year Senate career. It was only last year before this presidential run, he called to offer his regrets. Hindsight has led to other apologies like the nineteen ninety, four crime bill signed by President Clinton, and supported by many black mayors members of Congress. It contained the violence against Women Act, but also tough laws that led the sentencing disparities for drug offenses. I know we have always gotten things, right? But I've always tried. In two thousand and two voted to authorize the use of military force. In Iraq decision, he later called a mistake. That vote ultimately became a dividing line for Democrats in two thousand eight when Biden made his second bid for the White House. In that race, Biden's long experience was seen as a liability with voters demanding change he ended his. After finishing fifth in the Iowa caucuses. Let me make something clear. I ain't going away. Once again, he returned to the Senate. But Barack Obama had plans. Biden's experience was just what the Freshman Illinois senator needed in a running mate Joe Biden one just make a good by president he will make A. Vice. President. A. New Partnership was born one that made by too but afforded him his first real platform away from Capitol Hill. Joe. As Vice President, he traveled the world visiting nearly sixty countries. He also played a key role in rebuilding the economy and reshaping the nation's health care system. Prided himself on offering the president unvarnished opinions whether warring against authorizing the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. My suggestion is go we have to do two more things to see if he's there or leading the way arguing for same sex marriage men marrying men, women, marrying women and heterosexual men were are entitled the same exact rights. As, he considered another presidential bid of his own in two, thousand, sixteen tragedy struck again his son or Beau Biden. Now, the Attorney General of Delaware. died of brain cancer and devastated the family once more moas is our inspiration. Unfortunately. I believe route of time the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination. So we hit the campaign trail hoping to pass the torch to the next. Democratic. Vice President at a stop before the election. Biden warned of a trump presidency for donald trump to be elected president he's already in the area foreign policy. Making America weaker I just can't fathom what you do. It was president trump after seeing him in office that Biden said compelled him to run again. From solar nation, this is not who we are.
