We expect that, frankly, both militaries are going to be in a situation where they're going to be looking to try to refit, resupply in a reconstitute so that they're kind of prepared for that counter offensive, but we actually have a fair amount of skepticism as to whether or not the Russians will be in fact prepared to do that.

Fresh update on "nevada" discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek
"News update the Democratic National Committee is approving President Biden's plan to put South Carolina first on the 2024 primary calendar. The rule making arm of the DNC voted in favor of that proposal Friday. The proposal still needs to be approved at a full DNC meeting, which will take place early next year.

Charlie Welcomes Terry Schilling of the American Principles Project
"Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks so much for having me, Charlie. So Terry, there's a lot of news to go through here and Terry, you run the wonderful American principles project to do a great job. Talk about some of the work you did this last cycle first. Well, we were up and running in several of these battleground Senate states, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, even and we were running campaign as educating American people, the American people about the threat to our kids, especially as it comes to transgenderism. We ran a lot of ads on women's sports. But this year we did something new that we haven't done before. We ran ads educating Americans about these transgender surgeries, the hormone treatments, and just the overall gender indoctrination that the left is doing to our kids in schools, and we produce really powerful ads. Charlie, we spent almost $15 million this cycle. It's something I'm really proud of because frankly, and I think you probably don't aware of this. The pro family movement has done a lot of great things and been good at a lot of things, but they've retreated from the political battlefield. And that's what we do in American principles project is be fill that political gap for the family. And we win campaigns and elections for them. So we're still reading on the results for how the impact that our ads had on the electorate. But we know that where the Republicans and the politicians that really leaned into these culture war issues and went on offense, they won by huge margins, right? Like look at Ron DeSantis, he won by barely half of a percentage point in 2018. He takes on Walt Disney corporation of all people. And wins by almost 20 points. Mike dewine in Ohio signed a heartbeat bill into law. He wins by 35 points. These guys that actually went into the culture war and led on this stuff. They were rewarded handsomely at the polls. And we need to get rid of the Mitch McConnell's of the world and the mccarthys and the Tom emmers, and we really need to start rewarding our guys when they fight for us because these guys want to keep us from fighting. It's been a disaster.
Fresh update on "nevada" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"Breaking news on campaign 2024 this morning, the Democratic Party votes this week to make South Carolina and not Iowa, the lead off presidential nominating state. Georgia and Michigan have now been added to the first 5. This morning, yamiche alcindor, moderator of Washington week on PBS with what this decision actually will mean. Well, you had, of course, President Biden saying that he wanted to see South Carolina be the first and then New Hampshire and Nevada come after that. This really in some ways does reflect what I've sensed in the Democratic Party is a push for wanting to have more diverse states, more states that lean blue in the general election be the states where people are paying attention to because of course in the primary you spend a lot of money in these states. Of course, it didn't help Iowa that there was a debacle with the new app that made the caucuses not go in the way that most sort of hope they went. There was a lot of confusion and the results were not clear for some time. So that also did not work in the favor of Iowa. I've also been to where there are a lot of Iowa Democrats who are frankly very disappointed in this decision. You have New Hampshire that's saying they have a state law saying that the primary presidential campaign needs to be 7 days before any sort of similar nominating event. So I think it's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out, but it really just shows you I think the changing priorities for the Democratic Party here. Now, talking about changes in the Democratic Party, we had the big change in leadership this week in the house with New York congressman Hakeem Jeffries trying with some say is really impossible to fill the shoes of House speaker Nancy Pelosi. Your view of what happened this week with Jeffrey's taking over. Well, this, of course, is a historic change for Democrats. Hakeem Jeffries becoming the first black person to ever become the leader of congressional Democrats in the House. And of course, you also have cap and cark and peak Aguilar coming in as the number two and three in the party and Jim Clyburn holding on after a challenge to remain in leadership. I think this really shows that this is a new Democratic Party. I don't know that it's going to be any more progressive because Nancy Pelosi was seen as pretty progressive, but I think what you have is just a bench of democratic lawmakers who are eager to see new faces and to be able to be promoted. I think it'll be very interesting to see sort of the role that Nancy Pelosi plays as her party voted to make her speaker emeritus, which is still an honorary title, but still some know that, of course, after decades and decades of helping the Democrats fundraise and record numbers and also votes like really no other House speaker in modern history that her guidance is going to be something that I think is going to be part of the factor of this new democratic leadership. And of course, Hakeem Jeffries being very clear that he looks up to Nancy Pelosi and I think one other thing I've noticed that there's a little drama this week with Jim Clyburn possibly being challenged and that being taken away and that other
Election certification avoiding chaos, except in Arizona
"Now that the midterm ballots have been cast the certifications appear to be going smoothly so far although there are exceptions in Arizona The vote certification so far have been orderly even in places where there have been suspicions about election fairness all 17 counties in Nevada certified their results despite earlier accusations of election conspiracies and an effort to eliminate voting machines altogether It's the same story in New Mexico despite months of pressure on election officials But in Arizona's cochise county the two Republicans in control delayed their certification this week After hearing from conspiracy theorists who say the vote counting machines are not certified even though the state elections director says that claim is false Also in Arizona gubernatorial candidate Carrie Lake who lost her election is refusing to concede I'm Jackie Quinn
Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing Return to Discuss the 2022 Midterms
"This little clip from our body. One of the few good people left at Fox, Jesse waters. So what's going on here? Elections used to be decided on election night. American Idol can handle millions of votes in a commercial break, but it takes Arizona, Nevada a week. None of it makes sense because they don't want the system to make sense. The longer some of these races drag out for, the better it is for Democrats. Because they've created a system centered around ballots, not votes. It's not about winning your vote anymore. It's not about persuading you. It's about flooding the state with as many ballots as possible and getting them filled out Democrat. So here's my thesis. And the title of the article was the 2022 anti election. Because it wasn't an election. We didn't go to the polls and then choose the candidate we thought was best. Basically, one side mobilized ballot collection for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks, and if you look at Pennsylvania, 50 days of voting, half of the votes were cast before federman debates, Doctor Oz, so that's an election. It's simply the mechanics of collecting lots of pieces of paper, having them filled out. So my contention is an I don't know if it's bad of me to say this, whether it's undemocratic of me or against Republican values, our job is to out organize the Democrats. If we can't, if they have gone for 50 days of voting and mail out ballots, well, we just have to be better at that game. No, but let me point something out to you. What political party was the governor of Arizona for the last four years? Well, I know, because when Joe and I worked after the 2020 election. When I meet Dillon on the show on Wednesday after the election and she's in Arizona and the RNC warham and she's trying to explain to me how the GOP ran out of printer cartridges on election day and I assure you something the DNC wouldn't run out of cartridges to print ballots for their voters on election day, right, Joe. No question about it. We were out organized outspent out harvested out ballot collecting. I mean, the GOP has to completely redo its model because of mail out batting balloting. Which agreed to. Probably can't fix, right? We can't fix the law. We can't return to one day voting. Once it's the law, it's the law. And the
Amber Athey: It's a Failure to Not Have Results on Election Night
"Your thoughts on the vote counting process Now to give a fair perspective it's a state by state process Florida seemed to go swimmingly I mean we had a great election down here in Florida Even in New York a liberal state the races were called I mean by liberal standards relatively quickly we cleaned up pretty good took for congressional seats back but Nevada California and I'm New York has a lot of problems I remember kind of minimizing that a little bit But Nevada California and Arizona an absolute embarrassment We are the world's most wealthy economy We can't count a freaking vote It's embarrassing Something's got to be done over there The Republican Party on the ground has to make this mission number one Absolutely they have to It is such a failure in a democratic republic that we do not have election results until almost a week after election day Why are we not counting early votes in mail in ballots as they come in Why are we waiting until election day and then you have these weird jumps and dumping of ballots that looks weird to any onlooker as it should It doesn't make any sense to me And frankly if the Republican Party is not able to secure these election integrity bills in various states and localities then they need to get their heads in the game and figure out how they're going to start doing the same ballot harvesting schemes that the Democrats are for early voting because if they don't get on board with this they will never win another election again
Why Did DeSantis Do so Well in Florida
"Why did governor desantis and Republicans in Florida do so well? Well, a couple of reasons, I think, first off, Florida is now red state. I think COVID changed Florida 5 foot over the top in terms of more Republicans registered now than Democrats and a lot of the migration that happened during COVID since a lot of successful people to Florida who are Republicans. Secondly, governors have done a good job. In Florida and ran a good campaign as did Marco Rubio. And so, but that's not kid ourselves. As Florida's not Wisconsin anymore. As far as not Michigan anymore, Florida is not Nevada anymore. Those are purple states. Florida is a red state now. And according to San Francisco's credit for being a good governor and we're ready to break the race for reelection. And Marco ran a very good race for reelection to the Senate.
Jim Hanson and Kash Patel Discuss Righting Election Wrongs for 2024
"Get down to how we're going to win in 2024 and we got somebody I'm pretty sure has some quality thoughts on that. Mister cash Patel, welcome to the show. Hey Jim, thanks so much for having me. Great to be with you. I obviously everything's crazy. Nothing works, you know, the entire Republican machine is broken and we're never going to win an election again, right? Is that what is that what I've been led to believe? That's what you've been led to believe by the mainstream media because that's what they want you to believe is us to accept an unyielding defeat, except we are the party of Ulysses grant. We accept unconditional surrender. We do not surrender. And what the rhinos want you to do is accept defeat so they can rise to power the Paul Ryan's latest Cheney's McConnell's of the world. But what we need to do is learn an absolute lesson from our setbacks on Tuesday night. And that is, look, if we couldn't win and places like Arizona, Nevada and Georgia, we can't win the house. Well, in the Senate and those places, we can't win the presidential election. But I'm not saying we can't win there. I'm saying our current operations don't allow us to win there because the Democrats are playing the mail in ballot game and the Democrats are playing better and get the independent votes early to break their way. We need to start playing in that game and under those rules because as much as we don't like those rules, they are the rules and they won't change unless we elect a Republican electorate in those states to fix it. And we
There Are So Many Good Stories Out of the Midterms...
"So many good stories out of the midterms. We're not talking about desantis by 20, even Brian Kemp one convincingly in Georgia, Greg Abbott, just obliterated Robert Francis o'rourke. I mean, just ran over and Greg Abbott actually won independence in Texas, which is so interesting. Lombardo won in Nevada. But it's just, you know, in Arizona in particular. I mean, I'm shocked and I'm just looking at the numbers as they are. And I'd love to have somebody walk me through them. I'd love to have somebody tell me how on earth this is conceivable how it's possible how Carrie Lake could win game day in person election day voting independence two to one and then lose them if somebody dropped off ballots. It's just, and we're going to have the final numbers tonight. So just so everyone knows, there's anywhere between 90 to a 100,000 Maricopa ballots remaining. I think they're actually might be more than that. In fact, I just got a text message here for anyone listening from Arizona, okay? Anyone from Arizona listen to this. I want to, I want to talk about this. He said, by the way, your advice to cure vote was a good one. My wife and I voted at 6 a.m. on election day. My vote was tabulated, but my wife and I, among them, was among the majority of people around whose ballot couldn't tabulate. We checked our status and currently neither of us are currently listed as having voted since the primary. So we're going to have Tyler Boyer on to kind of walk through what to do here, but there is a chance that again, it's a chance. I'm not saying that it's a good chance, but knowing Maricopa's incompetency, there's a chance that there's tens of thousands of ballots in adjudication in different buckets that haven't been tabulated. And that would end up kind of closing this turnout gap that currently is a little bit mysterious right now. So
Sean Feucht Weighs in on the Elections
"I've become convinced and I'm never gonna stop talking about this, that there is stealing and cheating going on in our elections. Nothing offends me more. Maybe because my mom and dad are old, they go to vote. The idea that people across America believe in the system and they vote, and then bums, steal their votes, or try to steal their votes, I don't know how you stop talking about that. I think whatever's going on in a number of states is so corrupt and we've just got to deal with that. I mean, I just, I just have to start there. Well, I think it's definitely disheartening. I think when you see, you know, like, you look at how in the world is a guy like fetterman get elected. I mean, it's just the guy can't even talk. And you see that 52% of his votes came from mail it ballots or maybe even a greater percentage and then you look at the states where right now that are in toss up like Arizona and Nevada or whatever and everything comes down to mail in ballots and like when the mail in ballots start coming in, they only favor one side. And so you kind of begin to look at these things and you're like, okay, COVID, you know, was a smokescreen. It feels like in many ways the lockdowns were, you know, not that the virus wasn't real, but this smokescreen to release mail in ballots to mandate that. Like in California, we just got told, oh, everyone's voting mail in ballots. And it's like, huh? You know what? You know how easy it is to do fraud with mail in ballots. I mean, you don't yes. Yes, I do. Shine it, sign in any. I mean, it's so easy. And so it's like, I feel like in a lot of ways, I wish that the Republicans would have fought in the last two years a little bit more on that
Kevin McCullough: Trump Endorsees Performed Well
"Trump endorses did they performed well. He lost some big high profile races like Oz like laxalt and Nevada. They didn't pull through, but you can look at a lot of contributing factors to that. But it wasn't just that Mitch gave money. Trump went out there, held rallies, got people excited, drew media attention to himself, and didn't use it for himself. He said, I've got a big announcement coming up, and everybody thought he was going to announce. And the media all shows up to capture the announcement. He goes, now here's who I want you to vote for. And he reads the whole list. This president, when he ran in 2016, he was wet behind the years. He didn't know the political system. He really had a lot of people on his staff that were in the same kind of category. He has learned from his time in being in politics now, these 7 or 8 years that he's figured out a few things. And he is becoming far more disciplined, far more precise and far more on point. The wasted distractions off to the side are far fewer and the self inflicted wounds are far fewer.
Kevin McCullough Helps Us Unravel the Midterms
"Can't get past the fact that there is fraud happening in our elections that people are stealing Democrats are stealing elections and we have leadership in the Republican Party that doesn't say one word as though we're crazy for seeing what we see. That starts with McCarthy and McConnell. I don't really get it. How can they not deal with this? Do they not care? Are we seeing things? Are we imagining things? What's happening? I want to be very clear that I do not put Kevin McCarthy in the same bucket with Mitch McConnell by long shot. And I don't want to be associated with those comments specifically, but to your point that the rhinos, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell would have done so. That's absolutely true. And all you have to do to just judge yourself on the test of what you're saying is they've had two years to do something about it, why wasn't something done in Arizona where governor ducey was also one of the rhinos. He of course is no longer going to be governor. But they did not in Arizona and in Nevada. They did not get the needed reforms done. You still got bad voting procedures in place and despite the hope and the turnout of 6 million plus more voters for the Republicans across the nation, they were not able to overcome the what looks like direct corruption in those two states. So
Caller Blames Donald Trump for Not Stopping Jan. 6 Insurrection
"I kind of blame Donald Trump, but it's not for this election for the midterms. I blamed him for not stopping the insurrection. And I know that you myself and a lot of people in this country are tired of hearing about that, but he was the president of the United States. That mass happened on his watch. He should have stopped that and had he would have that would have earned a lot of respect for myself and a lot of other people in this country and unfortunately, I'm guilty of it too Todd. When you go to the polls, you carry your emotions on your sleeves. And we've got to stop doing that. And as far as the polls go, what Carrie likes space and out there in Arizona, that's just sad. It really is. In my opinion, what happened in Florida back in early 2000s with Al Gore and Bush, they fixed that problem pretty quick. I don't understand why they couldn't have fixed that problem in Arizona or in Nevada. Really don't. So that's why it opens up the door for possibly conspiracy theory stuff going on.
Democrats keep Senate majority as GOP push falters in Nevada
"Democrats have been able to keep control of the U.S. Senate but it's still a toss up on whether the House of Representatives will flip from blue to red It's nearly a week since the polls closed and yet a number of close races for congressional seats keep the balance of power undetermined House speaker Nancy Pelosi on ABC's this week with George Stephanopoulos says regardless of the outcome Democrats didn't get shoved out as many pundits had predicted because of their message to voters People over politics lower cost bigger paychecks safer communities Republican senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana suggests that Donald Trump was the reason the Senate didn't flip Those who were most closely aligned with the former president did underperformed On NBC's meet the press Cassidy says the two parties have to work together and pass meaningful legislation that helps Americans not politicians Jackie Quinn Washington
Midterm Results Continue to Roll In
"Midterm results continue to come in and of course one question is why are they coming in so late? The New York Times keeps talking about technical glitches and Republicans are calling into question these elections and to my knowledge, no one has actually said that the elections of fraudulent, the 2022 elections, but there are lots of there's lots of frustration, law, why does this happen only in swing states? Why is it taking so long to count a relatively small number of votes? How come other countries do it so much more quickly? So yeah, my cousin, Venezuelan cousin, is like wondering, hey, guys, what's going on? I mean, you know, third world country can do it faster. What are you doing? What's going on? What's going on? Two big results that did come out. One is that Blake masters lost in Arizona. That's a disappointment I was hoping that masters would make it master's campaign kind of together would carry Lake and holiday. They were kind of campaigning as a team, but of course what happens is you got to realize that even if they're campaigning as a team, they're not going to be judged as a team. People are going to judge masters against Mark Kelly and this guy is very chameleonic, very clever, and playing the astronaut car. You always thought he said that. And also the other cardi plays very well is his wife, congresswoman Gabby, is that yeah, yeah. Yeah. So, you know, she was shot ten years ago, 11 years ago. And so he plays, he plays that card really well. The combination. The combination of gun violence and all those things. So I knew that he wanted to go to Washington to kind of hammer at the gun control issue. On a happier note for us, in Nevada, a big result, Joe lombardo running in the governor's race, knocks out the incumbents. Yeah, and he's like so cute. He's like this old sheriff guy, you know? It's like I loved his I love this campaign come up with a sister I kept announcing and saying he's ineffective and so on and but so I can give him a speech basically saying that sheriff and the country is right here Joe lombardo stand up Joe. Let's have a round of applause for Joe so lombardo just played that as his ad saying listen, this is coming from my apartment. Very effective.
Nevada Vote-Counting Center Cameras Go Blank
"Officials have to explain why cameras on ballot counting went dark overnight. Now, conservatives are going to go all out of control and screen bloody murder and say that this is a conspiracy theory and that they turn the cameras off. But many people don't know the facts. However, according to officials, that the outage happened at 1124 p.m. on and came back, it was on 1124 p.m. on Tuesday, came back up at 8 a.m. on Wednesday. Hold on, I'm back. I copied it wrong 'cause I'm looking at the wrong stuff. The outage was at 1124 p.m. Wednesday and came back up at about 8 a.m. on Thursday. And according to people who are in charge, they said that the staff had left 60 minutes before the hour Tapping and that they came back at around 7 a.m. and it took them about 53 minutes to restore the connection that claimed that it was not washoe. Okay, was show. That could be another way to say that as well. Washoe. So they said that the connection happened around 53 minutes after the employees got back to do the count. Now, they said it lost connection. You know, my whole thing is this. What are the odds? Just what are the odds? That this system apparently is working, they have no evidence that it has lost connection before, and all of a sudden it loses connection in the middle of the night.
Brian Mudd: Republicans Nationwide Need to Do Some Soul-Searching
"The timing to have this conversation about the generational divide Because while we continue to await states who still haven't figured out how the hell to count votes as we sit here and wait what the heck is going to happen with Congress And along with another pivotal runoff election in Georgia the exercise of some serious that I do mean serious soul searching for Republicans outside of the state of Florida is underway It should be Regardless of the final congressional result even if even if lags on holds on in Nevada and Herschel wins the runoff and Republicans have control of the Senate with 51 I'm sorry masters does not look like it's going to work out in Arizona Lake can still get across the finish line Carrie like can still be the next governor of Arizona does not look like the numbers are going to be there for masters So the path almost certainly is going to be lax old hanging on Nevada and getting Herschel across the finish line and runoff Regardless of any of that stuff needs to change big time And there needs to be a realization of what the hell happened here Where you can have such a just absurd president Whose wildly unpopular 40 year high inflation border crisis geopolitical crisis and how there isn't so much as a wave election

Remember, Republicans Won and Will Take Both Chambers of Congress
"Keep in mind they're still counting votes and why are they doing that? Folks are dragging it out. They're taking their time. Florida, the third largest state of the nation, they were able to count all of their votes in one day and you're telling me that Arizona can't do that. You're telling me that the small, smaller states like Nevada, they can't do that, of course they can. But they're dragging all of this out. And the reason they're dragging all of this out is they want you to, they want you to forget that the Republicans are on the verge of taking control of the House and the Senate. Don't forget, just think about this for a moment. We're living in reliving in a moment in political history. Where you have Joe Biden to celebrating the election when he lost the Democrats are going to lose control of the Senate. They're going to lose control of the House. And here's how here's how Joe Biden is handling it. He's celebrating, and meanwhile, the Republicans are in mourning. There's a lot of nasty stuff happening out there. I

"We will never know what happened to the nevada. Once the vessel departed skagway ship had little going in its favor. It was well past its prime. And according to those with knowledge of the vessel the claritin nevada should have been scrapped instead of carrying passengers across the rough waters of alaska in the winter. The captain lacked skillet running the vessel as demonstrated by his poor docking abilities and the unqualified often. Inebriated crew could provide little assistance. In the case of an emergency the worst decision captain lewis made though was to depart skagway in the middle of a storm producing hurricane force winds even large ships holed up in such weather so it remains a mystery why lewis thought the rickety old clara nevada could handle heavy seas and high winds. No one knows how.

The clara nevada gold greed murder and alaska's inside passage levi estimates approximately fifty seven passengers boarded the clara nevada in skagway and the ship carried a crew of thirty several sources reported that the clara nevada steamed south from skagway carrying one hundred and sixty five thousand dollars in raw gold estimated at over thirteen million dollars today. The gold belong to one. Or more prospectors on the ship and levi makes the point it would likely have been in the form of gold dust if we believe undocumented but numerous eyewitness reports that a dilapidated ship with a dubious crew carried a small fortune in gold and a load of dynamite when it steamed out into a violent storm in the fridge and north pacific. This premise would make an excellent opening for novel but the plot thickens and with the help of frequent articles in the to seattle newspapers. The legend of the disaster of the clare nevada grew daily on the afternoon of february. Sixth eighteen ninety eight. The ss clara nevada departed skagway in a roaring storm with hurricane force winds out of the north when the ship passed through burner bay near eldred rock about thirty miles or forty eight point. Three kilometers south of skagway it round ground on eldred rock a witness eight miles or twelve point. Nine kilometers away claimed he saw an orange fireball and fly into the sky. Reporters afforded this eyewitness account a great deal of weight but levi questions how the man could have seen the boat wreck from his position. The man did sound the alarm. Though telling others a ship hit eldred rock and exploded due to the storm and heavy seas. It was too dangerous to launch a rescue until the following day the deputy collector of the united states customs in alaska. Inspector t. a markham chartered. The steamship rustler to investigate the reported accident on the shore near eldred rock. He found clothing photographs furniture and lumber he also discovered life preservers and a hatch cover printed with hasler. The original name of the clara nevada when markham reached eldred rock. He saw the distinct outline of a vessel twenty four feet or seven point three meters below the surface of the water. A diver inspected the ship and noted a black hole in the hall in the location of the boiler room. Seattle reporters speculated one of the boilers exploded. When the clara nevada hit eldred rock blowing a hole in the bottom of the hall. This conclusion made sense because the boilers repeatedly malfunctioned. On the trip from seattle to skagway when the diver reported the whole had black edge though people wondered why an exploding boiler would cause a black hole black marks more likely indicated a fire when reports leaked about the illegal dynamite aboard. a new theory emerged. Perhaps one or more lanterns aboard the ship overturned and started a fire on the clara nevada if the blaze reached the dynamite then a nation of explosives would not only explain the blackened hole but would also mesh with the eyewitness account of a fireball sending sparks into the air after an investigation. The steamboat inspection service concluded that unsecured lanterns overturned in the pitching rolling seas catching the ship on fire. While the captain and officers battled the blaze in a frantic attempt to keep it from reaching the dynamite they lost track of the vessels bearings and the storm push the clara nevada broadside onto the reef at eldred rock where the ship split open and sank the inspection service. Investigators deduced that. The fire must have started before the boat hit the rock because the divers found fire hose on the ship's deck and the hose was attached to the hydrants and coupled.

"Superstitions swirl around boats and some captains believe bizarre myths renaming. A vessel remains four most among the maritime harbingers of bad luck. And if you dare change the name of your boat you must follow a strict protocol to avoid certain doom. The clara nevada did not even complete her maiden voyage under her new name. Is this both the case. Study to prove the old mariner superstition or did her captain plot her demise. On february fifth eighteen ninety eight the s. s. clara nevada departed skagway. Alaska headed for juno and then seattle hurricane-force winds of ninety knots. That's one hundred miles per hour or one hundred and sixty one kilometers per hour pummeled the vessel with following seas of twelve to fifteen feet or four to five meters. As the helmsmen attempted to navigate the infamous lynn canal of alaska's inside passage when the decrepit old ship reportedly struck a rock and sank. The new surprised. No-one searchers found the body of only one man. The ship's purser but news reports speculated that no one survived such a horrific accident. The loss of clara nevada at first seemed tragic but forseeable accident and no one doubted the negligence of the ship's owners and captain before long though folks began asking questions and the seattle newspapers speculated wildly about the disaster crewmen believed to have died in the wreck turned up alive and well. Even the captain materialized and wasted little time beginning his next venture to ferry prospectors to the goldfields. What happened on february fifth. Eighteen ninety eight aboard. The clara nevada was the wreck an accident or did the captain and a few crewmen perpetrate. The worst.

"These all these fighter pilots their you know husbands fathers. They have families. They're not cold hearted killers. I feel like if the government was shooting down dozens of civilian aircraft every year. Somebody would say something i mean. Yeah by now. Somebody on their deathbed would be like and by the way. Yeah i mean. I'm sure it's probably happened once or twice. And we probably don't know about it i would i would. I would agree with because yeah. It's a pretty serious. You can go on youtube. And there's videos of pilots that just get even near the airspace. And they next thing you know. There's you know f sixteen tailing him so it's not something to screw around with but on the other end of the spectrum f sixteen fly slow enough to tail cessna probably not but they will budget and yeah i was trying to think of like can even fly slowly might stay with a prego one hundred and twenty lights if at an angle towards the ground and just rocking thrust. Because they're not getting any lift at. That's yeah yeah more more likely. They probably like radio. You and do a couple lie. Close fly bys like showing their weapons to break the sonic barrier right past. You just be like yeah. You're you're turning around on the other end of the crazy spectrum though. It could be that the aliens area fifty one either abducting these aircraft or maybe the. Us government uses these aircraft to test new advanced alien weapon technology. Well for that one shoot and they couldn't find it. That's one hundred percent right so yeah it sounds like a really cool x files episode in all honestly i. I don't believe the area fifty one or portal theories. I think it's something more simple as you know pilots. Just underestimate the the crazy weather. That happens around mountains but who knows maybe portals. Maybe it's aliens you know. Gotta have. I like to think it's possible. So that is. That is all i had show. I agree with you on that. I think it's it's more likely attributed to the thing that makes the most reasonable sense. But i like to always think that there's something like something. I won't say more sinister going on but something more interesting happening that that makes it worth tuning into our show. I wouldn't i would like to say. I've i've hiked survived two of the triangles now. So i've hiked in the alaska triangle and the nevada triangle. And i've made it out alive so you're starting to really push the boundaries. I know you just gotta go on a sailing trip in the bermuda triangle. Then we'll i have the well. Let's take a little paddle board out miami for like twenty minutes and we'll come back and then we'll technically have done swimming off the beach in miami.

They aren't they know gravity. They know the basics of it but they don't fully understand why mass they don't understand why you know. Why does mass bends space time. So things like that. So i maybe there is some strange thing going on in these areas that we don't know the episode. You were joe on the history channel. When they were talking about the brand new triangle. They talked about that one pilot who was flying and all of a sudden he said he was like in some kind of wormhole and came out the other end and he was over miami but he was hundreds of miles away forty minutes. Yeah yeah. He skipped like forty minutes in time and his clocks it match. And i mean you could. He could be full crap or he could be truthful. Who knows but or there was like a real quick tiny blip in space. Something caused a rift in space time. That allowed that to happen. He was in the right place right time and was lucky enough. That didn't crash playing. I mean there are hundreds of disappearances in the nevada triangle that the plane has never been found. Now that doesn't mean it's in alpha centauri now because it went through some hole but you know it's that simpsons episode where they're all dumping their garbage and aliens aliens on the other side of like adopted all of our trash technology remember like because they're throwing away microsoft zun deep players and all the zoos zoo so i won't spend more time on portal's because my the final theory is one that i really like but yeah it's crazy probably not true but it's fun to talk about. It is fun to talk about. So the final theory is area fifty one in alliens because what would be a good conspiracy episode without talking about area. Fifty one in aliens but the nevada triangle area fifty one does flank. Its eastern border. A big chunk of it. And we we have a whole episode on nets the big chunk that we can see underground.

Yeah i mean so he. that's awesome. Yeah i i'm shocked. They didn't turn this into a movie. Or maybe they did but he apparently he had he carried took the parachute with him to keep warm. So amazing amazing story of survival but in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven. A group of boy scouts hiking in the area found a canopy that authorities believed was. From steve's t thirty-three wreckage has never been found So this is wow. This is kind of interesting. So i'll say my questions i had was What happened to his jet. You know was it. Is it just lost in the wilderness. Now when i was doing research on this specific incident there was a lot of This was at the height of the cold. War was kicking off. We were kind of getting into a competition with the russians at this time and there was a lot of rumors that he sold the crash jet to the soviets and that he was kind of like a soviet double agent within the united states military might landed at somewhere and then he like built elaborate backstory as something like that yeah and he. He claimed that's totally not true. I you know i. It did experience Issues and i had to a checked. The thing that adds to the mystery will never know because he actually ended up dying in a plane crash only a few few years later. Nineteen sixty five. So was that plane. Crash suspect at all they. They claim it was just a mechanical issues with his plane and he went down with it. But veda the military. So okay which you know. I know i know i'm being i'm being no. I mean provocative. So like i said back. Then you know. These pilots would fly new and unproven jets a lot of times. It would go down or did was he a double agent and he was selling us military technology and they got rid of him. That's kind of what. I was getting that they found out. That actually was a double agent or selling secrets. And they're like He died in a plane crash. That's so weird. Yeah so it's just another strange incident that happened within the nevada triangle. So all right. Let's move on to our next incident. This one maybe. That's why there's no movie on it because you know. Cia hollywood especially back. Then we're totally tied in. They're not gonna make a movie about that if he's if he's the bad guy. Yeah it it would make for really interesting movie. Actually the whole him selling secrets and that faking. That would be a great move. Yeah so anybody listening. Who is a movie producer. Great idea re-adjust. I give us a shout out in the movie. Forgiving you the idea yeah The the pre was the producer that did the all the alien shows. Oh i can't. I can't remember his name.

There couldn't find it and now since nineteen forty one to present day. The plane has never been located. That's crazy i know. Isn't it insane. Like a he's alive and reported the area because it's not like all right. We've got this whole area to look up. He liked sought. And you could even say okay. Maybe he was distressed because he had just had like his plane went down. Whatever but still. It's like you could do math and say okay if you landed here. Yeah we picked you up here you flying this way. This is were you said the plane was. Let's just do a big grit and it's it's a plane. It's not like he dropped like a suitcase. And they're trying to find out. And i mean he saw it. He said it was less than a mile of where he landed it's unexplainable but here's a even if even if he was wrong and it was five miles. Yeah that's still like you have good air. It's aliens audience. They took it. They took it sailing thing in the thing. That is even more interesting about that. Is you've had professionals trying to find the plane for six years and they can't find it. I mean it's not like the grid of where they need to search. Is that big. They kind of know where it went down. So where's the plane so That that's our. I kind of mysterious disappearance that stands out in the triangle. Our next one is not too many years later. So this one is i. Think less Strange but i well. I'll go through the timeline. So december fifth nineteen forty-three a us. Air force b twenty four liberator and a crew of six disappeared in the sierra nevada mountains. While on a routine training mission the be twenty. Four was supposed to fly from fresno's hammer field to bakersfield california onto tucson arizona and then back to fresno So the plane disappeared so the following day an extensive search by the military kicked off and they launched an additional nine. B twenty four is to aid in the search however during the search another one of the nine. B twenty four is piloted by squadron. Commander captain william tartan and five of his seven crew also went missing and this is a. This is a little bizarre so so obviously. They went missing while searching for this I bomber the plane would eventually be discovered in one thousand nine hundred fifty five when huntington lake reservoir was drained for repairs according to us military records the second bomber experienced high wind turbulence and began to lose hydraulic pressure..

She holy cow. Yeah and then in the nineteen zero six thousand nine hundred seven season. Tamra california's set the seasonal snowfall record with eight hundred eighty four inches of snow in one season. So yeah so it's You know it. It was pretty extreme weather and you know as we get into this. You'll see that on the same side of theories. I think whether probably does play a good chunk of you know you know factor of what's going on to these pilots but here's some other just kind of interesting facts about areas within. The nevada triangle. Obviously yosemite national park's it's within the triangle and That's home to the tallest waterfall. In the united states which has a vertical drop of two thousand four hundred twenty five feet yosemite falls which joe i actually got to see in person last fall. It's pretty amazing. To see in person. I ever out in california you gotta go to yosemite one in the did you see any moon bows and no because of covid. We weren't allowed to overnight and the parks so yeah we'll have to go back. We'll have to do an actual backcountry in yosemite. Yeah i want to go. So i'm on that one. I was busy filming. That's why i wasn't there. Yeah so the climate of the sierra nevada mountain ranges impacted by california's mediterranean climate. But it higher elevations you experience an alpine climate. Just like i said you can get a season where you have. Eight hundred eighty four inches of snow so Pretty pretty wild extremes in weather Like i mentioned earlier.

"Because i i've been to many of his events seen him speak many many times and you know some reporters in texas now started to ask me and others always ask me like what's what's the is professional wrestling if you ever watch it. He's doing professional wrestling. Promos as political theater where you know he used to. He did a bit about taking a steel chair to the establishment itself. I mean it was. It was that like brazen. It wasn't even sort of subverted in their no it was. It was quite quite literally literally beating people over the head with these metaphors up and one of the things that happens in professional wrestling is if you have a gimmick in a certain area or territory whenever and it's not working you leave and you totally reinvent this new character to be somewhere else and i think that's what happened. We've never seen somebody to be so thorough on. The professional wrestling is exactly like politics. Sort of gimmick and that. And that's really what it is. Egypt he just got a new gimmick nia a new venue for it and and who knows you know if this doesn't work out there's plenty of other states in the union. There's plenty of other elections that every two years. It happens every two years so there are so. We have not heard the last dan road. Amer in on your point to your point in terms of his electoral performance. He didn't embarrass himself. You know When he ran for state senate in twenty eighteen he lost to a former member of the assembly who was Sort sort of neutrally regarded but he beat a former state senator Who who was sort of an inconsequential a state senator but nonetheless a name that people knew in nevada. He beat her to to come in second in that republican primary in two thousand eighteen and then in twenty twenty. He beat a field of candidates that included a former statewide elected official to win the nomination. So it's not like he is completely ridiculous and You know loses all the time and makes a fool so he actually has a record of winning certain primaries and so you know that he does have something to go on whether or not he should have may be stayed in nevada in run for another office and then sort of tried to build on that i think is another thing but i think you know i agree with you. I think he realized okay. Well i've tried twice once in a small district once in a larger district probably opposite of out should have been People are buying it here. Maybe it's time to move on to somewhere else and and this special election Sort of a gimme right. It's like the space between spaces. You know the twenty twenty ran than twenty twenty two loses this one he can still start gearing up for twenty twenty two and see what happens then so maybe someday we will see dan big. Dan wrote emmer in the congress of the united states. And if we do the plaque outside his office. I really hope has big. Dan in in quotation marks From whatever stadium prepar well.

It's weird dichotomy between primary politics and general election politics that you see in these racist that is very very interesting and obviously it is extremely early. they're definitely check out the story. There's plenty to close out of the one thing about santa ball was that he proved he could win in primaries and generals in he did so with the the opprobrium of the republican base I don't think i saw brian. Sandoval wants a republican convention in this state the whole time he was governor. I saw lieutenant governors. I saw congress members. I saw others. I never saw sandoval there. He just basically ignored me party. And bypassed it and I it didn't hurt him. It didn't hurt him because there were crossover republican votes. I'm sorry crossover democrat votes. That helped him out. So i think he is one of those rare people who if he decided to get into the race for senate would would be able to win a primary and And would be able to defeat laxa although that would be that would be kind of an interesting thing to watch how he would go about doing net but as you said i think his response is absolutely right on. He didn't have any interest in going to washington. Dc when he was serving as governor He served in all branches of nevada government. But i don't think he has even the slightest bit of interest in leaving. he loves the job. A you are He's one that job for a long time. And i don't think he is inclined to go absolutely anywhere now that he's he's got it so yeah so. I don't think we're going to be saying brian. Santa claus name on a ballot wanted to end on a little bit of a lighter note. We talked a couple episodes ago couple of weeks ago about the possibility reported that there was a possibility that dan road aymer who challenged suzy.

A couple of times and all that Ben key kaffir. I think it would be a great republican statewide candidate. He would have to spend a lot of money to improve his name. Recognition in other parts of the state. Same with heidi ganster. There're all the the problem with all for all those people is not generally it is. The primary is getting over that that big mountain climbing the everest. That is the republican primary. After that. it's it's. I'm not going say off down here because this is going to be a fairly formidable candidate. I think it is on ride. His gonna raise money. He's going to have a things that he did that That i think you can point to. He can point to that justifies reelection and so but they would be good. it would be good candidates. They would be good candidates. The problem for republicans is what happens if they nominee. I don't see on this list. We'll talk about senate second but the name adam lack laxa or a similar name does not appear on this list. And if there was an atom lack salt that person would be the favourite to win the primary. Let's just be honest about Adam lack laxa won the primary He by default. Nobody even decided to run against him because everybody in nevada knew that he was going to appeal to that. That party base now. I think his image has been shattered a little bit. I think he's been shown to a little bit to be a paper tiger after his performance against his lack which was abysmal. It was one of the worst campaigns. I think i've ever seen and certainly the worst campaign for governor in the state of nevada that i've seen since i've been covering in that's been going back a number of years so So someone like that. If there was a person who could excite the trump base who was a better candidate. And i don't know who this person might be that person i think would win a primary and so all of these folks talking amongst themselves is good. They've got to watch out for that x. factor though in and what who who that factor might be going forward. And i think that that could really be a problem in the primary but the general i is a completely different animal and and i think you know we've seen it before in two thousand ten Jim gibbons was running for a second term.

I think nevada's slated get something like four point one billion dollars or so actually more than five all local governments in the state is. There's there's quite a lot you know there for that. There's childcare credits. I learned that my my wife was telling me the other day that we're going to get like one hundred thirty dollars a month from now on until the rest of the end of the year in child to pay for childcare. Which is nice. It's a thousand dollars a month but you know one hundred and thirty. It'll help with head i can. I can buy some groceries or something. But there's there's a lot of those types of things that that are in there a lot of help for folks who are on food assistance of have increased unemployment insurance unemployment benefits and things like that at least until september so mid-september But you know. I think that there's it's definitely a clear. Victory you know for the biden campaign is some things that zakho nine actually. I saw tweeted about saying that. The last time biden was here this this piece of legislation. A lot of these things are specifically what he talked about with. You know sort of the statewide leaders here in nevada and conan at said on twitter that he really he said the state really really needs. This really needs to support for local governments to sorta backstop them to keep people employed in very important jobs and keep public safety jobs things like that. So there's a lot to to that. That's that's really good. But i you know to me. The most interesting thing was also the process. So i don't know we can just talk about what's in the bill. I'm sure you've got a lot more factoid than than i i definitely want to talk about the process of it because it was. It was almost farcical at times. What you saw happening in these senate and house chambers during the passage of this thing. Oh yeah no absolutely. There were some ridiculous things that and going back to what we were talking about. At the beginning here you have people in the bernie sanders wing. Who wanted a minimum wage increase of fifteen dollars an hour. This is something that everybody i think. even republicans. I think agree that the minimum wage with hasn't been raised in in more and more than a decade Is far too low. Now it's it's Poverty way to. It's not a living wage by any stretch of the imagination. And so they wanted to put it in this package. It was in the original version But then the senate parliamentarian ruled that no. You can't do that under budget. Reconciliation rules and so you have to take it out now. There were people who were saying. Oh how with that. You know overrule the parliamentarian. They can do that. The vice president could could go up there and said nope overruled were putting it in and it would subject to obviously legal attack. But the you've got you've got the bernie sanders. People who are now in charge of the nevada democratic party saying look see. This is what we're talking about a bill that would help people a measure that would help people a get a be able to have a living wage is is shunted aside because the moderates won't take on the system they won't rock the boat Because of these byzantine rules. Why should a parliamentarian a single person on elected by anybody and these byzantine roles of the senate stand in the way of progress and good things for people..

It It reminds me of another a republican here in nevada danny arcane who tried Tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and tried again To win office down here in southern nevada six times and failed each time and then moved up to douglas county and ran for the douglas. County commission At just complete carpet bagger. I mean there was no question that that this was. The you know the primary motivation behind this move and one by seventeen votes in in twenty twenty just barely won that seat and and finally had success Having moved you know to the dealer ended the state And i wondered when he did that. What republicans were gonna think about that. And apparently you know seventeen more of them than the voted for the other guy. Thought it was okay but But we're the real thing. I think that if i was a republican that i would be upset about is why is there. Money left over from the d. Three race i mean. Why was that money. Not deployed in that race against suzy lee You know what was there was a thought that hey you know. What if this doesn't work out. I'm gonna need some cash to see to race in another state or in another jurisdiction because I you know i. My primary goal is to run for congress and win the state really matter If i was a republican voter here. I would be like well. I sorry. I gave that money because i gave it for race here in cd three. And then that's as it should have been spent there or returned to the donors donated to charity or whatever so It just such a great. It's just such a great story in in in in every sense and and there was no there was no doubt we both saw it on the campaign trail. Did dan roy. Dahmer was a showman he was he had been in wrestling and and had all the Personality of that you know being a wrestler and on all that kind of stuff that also actually hurt him because there were those nine. One one calls Lodging domestic violence and there was the police reports of of you know A violent encounters and bars and florida. So it cut both ways We will hear all those things again. I am sure that the in fact. I saw a tweet from the spokeswoman for the nevada democratic party on twitter that says hey texas democrats let's chat..
"nevada" Discussed on RJ Politics
"A lot of the power that they had maybe maybe twenty eight twenty sixteen but it did take years to sort of write that ship if you're a democrat and so there there is a lot at stake right away for the. Yeah definitely and the cd. Three race is a perfect example of of What we were talking about earlier You know you You you suzy. Lee is is a good democrat for that district because she's a moderate and There's a lot of people who are progressives who don't like moderates and think will wire their you know what's the point Of having a moderate democrat you might as well have a republican in there But But but honestly if you ran a if bernie sanders moved to southern nevada got gave up his mittens gave up. His jacket moved to southern nevada. in lived here and decided to run for congress in the in the third congressional district he'd have an uphill climb. It would be tough for bernie sanders to win notwithstanding the fact that he would have total progressive. Support the district currently drawn. And we'll see how it's drawn at the end of the summer when they re district the district is currently drawn would be a very tough sledding for bernie sanders And and i it's not as tough for sicily because of their ideological differences and so that's a perfect example. Now you have april becker Who is a good candidate. She was a very good candidate in that state. Senate race And i think she'll be a very good candidate for For this district assuming she wins the primary. You're gonna have to have somebody who can't be painted as a crazy out of touch socialist. Who wants to take away. Everybody's healthcare and give government healthcare You you if you have that kind of person who would be much easier for a republican challenger to to win that seat and certainly. It's happened many times before in the history of the third congressional district so that district has kind of a good example of the the consequences of of these kind of things. And what potentially could go wrong You need a etiological diversity in the party because of the ideological diversity of the districts and if you do a poor job of matching candidate to district you lose and the other side wins and And you know that may Be for for democrats again a disaster like it wasn't twenty sixteen with donald trump winning the presidency And so you know. These things have to be taken into consideration and the political realities of those things have to be taken into consideration. So i think that's that's that's gonna come into play For some of the central committee voters not all but some of the central committee. Voters will look at things outweigh and i think. See the the pragmatic reality of of what's going on there so that'll that'll be a factor share sharon and certainly as we always say we'll be watching it the next week and be the the following saturday coming from the saturday in which they actually you make this vote and you get a good sense of where the democratic party in nevada. The sort of the empowered party is what i call them in the story because they really have a a pretty tight grip on things most of the state most the federal seats the the majority in both legislative houses and things like that..
