"Brian's Big three. Number three. We can make a military rack response in a time in a manner of our choosing. But yes, unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping. Warrant a retaliatory military strike against the Islamic Republic of Iran. And I'm pretty sure, Senator Tom Cotton said some very similar to us on Friday. Ah, he, of course, serves in the military is now in the Senate Armed Services Committee, and he sees what Iran's been doing blowing up commercial tankers in the Gulf. Shooting at our drones and video proves there solely to blame. How should we respond in your mind? Number two. I've seen the story this morning. I don't have anything to say about the contents of that. I don't talk about intelligence matters. But President Trump has been crystal clear and we're going to do everything we can to prevent any country from interfering in any election in the United States of America will continue to work hard at that.

Trump Vows to Issue Executive Orders if Coronavirus Relief Talks Collapse

"Breaking news on the economic front the White House and Democrats say talks of the economic stimulus package they have hit a wall president trump is threatening to take executive action on his own. Let's get details on that from our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Americans they are in desperate economic pain right now but stimulus talks seem to be going nowhere right now what's the latest? Well, that's right. Wolf with negotiations falling apart over Corona Virus Relief Bill White House officials say president trump is now expected to take some kind of executive action to provide financial support to Americans who are struggling to find work during this pandemic the executive orders are likely to include some kind of effort to provide enhanced unemployment benefits as well as some kind of. Action on suspending evictions from rental homes. There may be some other proposals in the mix, and in the meantime, we should point out the president just hinted at the path ahead in the last hour tweeting, we're going a different way that tweet coming from the president in just the last hour, and in the meantime administration officials are throwing cold water on the president's gold having corona virus vaccine ready by election day one senior administration official told me earlier today that timeline is highly unlikely. President trump's claim that a corona virus vaccine could be ready by election day is receiving an injection of reality as top administration health officials are saying, don't bet on it. Then November third. Oh I. Think I think in some cases. Yes. Possible before. But right around that time, a senior administration official told CNN that timeline is just not realistic saying it's quote metaphysically possible but highly unlikely and Corona Virus Taskforce Dr Anthony Fauci said. May Have to wait until November or December just to find out of a vaccine really works adding maybe we'll get an answer as early as October but I doubt it trying to put a finer prediction on the timetable right now I don't think any of us have enough information yet to know how that's going to shake out. The pandemic Bennett economy recovered somewhat in July with the unemployment rate falling to just above ten percent with one point eight million jobs added even with so many Americans still out of work congressional Democrats and White House officials have been at odds all week over Corona Virus Relief Bill with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pointing the finger at top aides to the president. Now, that's been in the White House when the president's land that table and walked out that's really what Mr. Meadows. Did I on the table can't shoot staff Mark Meadows Jabbing right back I think for those that are suffering they. They should be asking the Democrats in the House and the Senate why why have you failed to meet the needs that we have so rightly expressed without a deal the White House is signaling Mr Trump will take executive action that legal drafting is complete. We've had this intense discussions about this. In the last several days, I don't WanNa make predictions. Democrats are also keeping an eye on election day accusing the administration of making changes to the nation's postal system that could slow down mayland balloting in a letter, the Postal Service Inspector General, a group of Democratic senators wrote the changes appear to pose a potential threat to mail in ballots and the twenty twenty general election President Likes Mail in voting in Florida but not another states like Nevada Florida's got a great Republican governor and it had a great Republican. Got Run to scientists Rick Scott, the president is seizing on comments made by Joe Biden, you seem to say African Americans are less diverse and their political views Latino voters unlike the African American community notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With, incredibly different attitudes about different things Biden try to clean that up tweeting in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not on issues not at all Mr Trump, tweeted biden is no longer worthy of the black vote I don't know what's going on with them, but it was very insulting. The president's attack on Biden are tricky for Mr Trump, who has a long track record of racially offensive behavior including sharing this video, featuring a supporter shouting white power. Now the US intelligence community issued a startling statement on election security today as the US closing in on the fall campaign. In that statement intelligence officials warn Russia is trying to damage from where Vice President Joe Biden. His chances to win the white. House the statement also from the intelligence community says, she prefers that president trump fail in his bid for a second term. These warnings from intelligence officials come at a critical time for American voters who were largely unaware that. The Russians were interfering with the election for years ago this time the voters know all too. Well, what could

Debate over mail-in voting heats up

"Another issue that is rising to the surface. The debate over mail in voting and the president critical of states like Nevada but very supportive of states like Florida and Arizona, which, by the way have Republican governors versus a Democratic governor. That's right Now, Trump has tried to draw a distinction between male voting and absentee voting, and there actually is a difference, according to election efforts in a state like Nevada, they are actually sending a ballad to every voter. It's different in Ah, in a state like Florida or a lot of other states, Republican and Democrat run election administrations where they're not sending every voter of ballot, But they're sending every registered voter an application for a ballot. So an absentee ballot is considered something that you have to ask. For now. A lot of states are Doing this for the first time sending absentee ballot applications to everyone removing the need for an excuse for an absentee ballot right in my state, Virginia and a lot of others in the past, you've had to. Ah, Ah sign affidavit that says, I have to vote absentee because I won't. I won't be here. I'm disabled or there's some reason that I cannot vote in person. States, including Virginia are removing that requirement. Removing things like, you know, notarization and witnessing requirements. To make it easier for people to vote from home. But still shop stopping short of sending everybody has ballot, which some conservative voting experts say that just leaves all these ballots lying around that people may not have wanted and opens the door sees an opportunity for fraud toe happen, and there have been a couple of isolated cases of that. Nevertheless, in almost every way and certainly when it comes to ballot security, the experts said. There really isn't a difference between vote by mail and absentee voting and the distinction that the president's trying to drive mostly based on where his friends are right which states he thinks he thinks you're likely to vote for him in which are likely. To vote against him and again, in spite of his attempts to turn this into a red blue divide. You really do have states of both political leanings across the country dramatically ramping up people's ability to vote from home ability to vote remotely. Not all. There's still some some outliers, and and so that's what a lot of election officials Experts to worry that that there's a lot of room for bad things to happen on. And like everything else that Corona viruses sort of exposed. This is a system that already had a lot of problems right. If the pandemic hadn't happened, you could imagine that you and I would be sitting here talking about foreign election interference allegations of voter fraud. All of these issues surrounding our election infrastructure there were already very serious and then the pandemic comes along and simultaneously exacerbates those issues. But also forces forces action. So we've seen this wholesale transformation in a lot of places of the ways that people are going to vote in in ways that could potentially because ah lot of confusion and a lot of delays. Once the once election rolls around, and one followed to that point, and you write about it in your time magazine piece is the president essentially trying to sow the seeds of doubt regarding the outcome of this election in November. That is the concern of a lot of experts again of both political persuasions that you and this is a drumbeat that Trump has has been ah, keeping up since since before the 2016 election and Ah when he said, You know, I couldn't guarantee that he would accept the result and then, of course, and now, of course, Republicans accused Democrats being the ones who never accepted the result. The legitimacy of the 2016 An election, although, of course Hillary Clinton did concede the day after. But again we have the president over and over, saying this election is going to be rigged. This election is going to be improper. The very existence of people voting by mail, a system that existed in many faiths long before Donald Trump was a candidate for anything but just saying that the existence of that system automatically guarantees This election will be fraud fraudulent on and part of the reason that that's potentially so serious number one because you know, democracy relies upon a certain measure of trust that people Trust in the system. Trust in institutions believe that it's an accurate representation of the popular will, but number two because there's so many unique challenges to this election because there's going to be such an unusual value of people voting by mail. I probably will take a while to count all those votes and you could imagine a situation where you know the early vote count goes for one candidate. That is more votes come in. It's hard to change. That's been very easy for that candidate Seo will somebody's monkeying with the number. Somebody's doing something improper, creating doubt in the minds of their supporters, potentially making their supporters want to take to the streets because they feel that their votes are being taken away from them, And that's very dangerous when it's not warranted when it's when it's nearly No Jen DUP in one's perceived political interests that really endangers the bedrock of our democracy. And so there's a lot of concern that that that people have accurate information that people understand that the vote will take a while to count very well may not know the winner of the presidential or many other close elections on election night, and that's OK. That's not something going wrong. In fact, that's the system functioning as it is supposed to function. We should all just take a deep breath and pay for those votes to get

Fresh update on "nevada" discussed on The Fifth Column

"States like that Nevada is really interesting because it's a swing state or at least it has been until recently. But think about this for a second for A. So yes. There is going to be a logistic issue because they haven't done this before and they need to think about how to do this so that they don't do New York keep in mind that New York. Every single thing at every single level in New York has done worse than almost any other state it is it is governed by absolute morons who tried to make I. Mean it's the most expensive subway system in terms of like building track per mile like to acts of any other subway systems they get everything wrong. So yes, they got their election wrong. Nevada is not governed nearly as badly but who? Are The people who are most likely to use mail in voting in Nevada in a swing state in a very split state. It's all white people. It's all white people who are scared who vote Republican overwhelmingly and Donald Trump is is sitting there and telling them about the bail and voting his fraudulent stay away from it. It's toxic. He's absolutely shooting himself in the foot message. Wise. That's why he went to and start talking about how great it is in Florida because like Oh, shit I know people who vote by mail in Florida including Edito me. And if I tell them enough that they shouldn't vote or that it's somehow problematic that that that it's going to discourage their voting and and who are the people in Nevada who voting on the other side they are disproportionately young. They're disproportionately Latino there disproportionately therefore must much less likely to vote by mail. So it's it's fascinating to watch Like spin through the mind of Donald Trump which I try not to do but like in terms of of. Try to make the system as as well done as possible. Totally fine with that point out the flaws in New York totally fine with that making wild conspiracy claims which he does always in the same paragraph that it does this other stuff too is going to hurt him in Nevada, but he's working backwards from that, right? Mean it's not as if he looked at the New York situation and said, maybe I should raise this is an issue I mean if the situation didn't happen and you know, I can't see any possibly that that wouldn't happen because as you pointed at where we're governed by a series of complete idiots and boobs here. So going to happen. Even. If it didn't Donald, trump would still make this claim. Right the claim that he's making is that if I lose, they cheated that's it does nothing more complicated than being get into the weeds and talk about what's happening in? Nevada talk about Florida etc. But she is back filling his argument when people come in and say, okay, here's how you address it but he's only thing is just single sentence scare tactics is what he does. I mean the tweet. On July. Twenty ninth but I found so loathsome and Donald Trump tweets loathsome stuff and it was this one. I'm happy to inform all of the people living there capital letters, suburban lifestyle dream, which isn't a phrase that anyone used suburban. Like Fire record I if. Joe Biden has like a medical issue. His own, his his I'm healthy I, pass all the tests and the. Dumb. People living there suburban lifestyle dream that you will no longer be bothered or financially hurt by having low income housing built in your neighborhood. That's a similar version of that. It's a single sentence. It doesn't address an issue that is an actual issue that people have been clamoring about. It doesn't address some amazing piece of legislation that has passed and it's it is just that classic I'm panicking stick scare tactics I mean even when he's not panic even when he knows that it doesn't think that he's going to win which I don't think he didn't two thousand sixteen in this kind of stuff comes dribbling out of his mouth and it's like you can racial lines that actually fairly easily. Because I. Think there is that subtext to it. I wouldn't be surprised if that was the motivation somewhat. Anybody. Even if you don't eat is just a sleazy compl- just a horrifying thing for a president to say, you're not going to be bothered by low income people in your neighborhood. We're not going to have the poor ruining your suburban lifestyle dream. I mean like this is the president that we have right now it's it's just offensive in two thousand level but the real question here Moynihan is, can you name the five things in order that the president of the United? States, can good question? Can you do it Moynahan right to five things in order? Yes. Test you know what it is. Don't look it up I. Don't know I. Don't know you can't do it now I do recall dude you. Know I know what? Like the clash get kind of underwear he had for breakfast. Too, eat and Breakfast. Can you do it? Well, no, I can't. It's like a woman TV. Thank you Hotel Foxtrot Yeah. Seriously neither one of you. Neither one of you know how to Person Woman Man Camera. TV. Neither one of you I don't even know what that is. Again This is the cognitive test. This is the president takes some pretty coming. And you're told, person woman Man Camera TV and then at some point later on in the test they'll say, Hey, do you remember those things personal cameraman? TV. Can you tell me again? So at various intervals out this engagement, he's asked to recall that. I was not aware of that. Yeah. Yeah. It was aware that this happened. Yeah. Your date each. Day Trading and buying houses. It's what happens when you stop giving. It's like. You have to know that we're going get to the part where we get to talk about dumb stuff because the stuff is even dumber than the normal dump. Stop it is it is. It is. Yeah I'm. It's all very depressing, but I will say to as as a transition I allow myself the the prerogative here to actually a transition because we're talking about stupid people and New York City and. Rather surprise. But then I thought for two seconds and wasn't surprised the Tisch James.

But maybe we'll get some context everyone I as to what are amazing virtual event was I. It's a growth accelerator virtual events we had. Let's give some people some color what we have. We had to mazing speakers we had great networking one networking with speed networking. Group networking and we had chat to connect everyone afterwards we did this over the course of four weeks. Each week is about three hours or so we've ended hot seats where we help people with their business and people were helping each other. You know we aren't able to do live right now. So we decided to do are virtually event and we wanted to see how he would do with that. So it's a new challenge for US Neil you want to add some more color to that before we talk about how to be amazing.

We maybe we should talk about the mistakes we made. I think some of the key mistakes we made was not vetting detect platform enough meaning. So we use a new platform called hopping. That's H. O. P. I. N. before we moved back to zoom but that's where I can talk about that later. But what we've learned is that you can't just say these people speak these events and they're experiencing you have to test every single person which I think meal night we've always been on. The other side where it's like Oh God we have to go to ten minute test again, and then it's like you do it every single time but there's a reason for it because you don't want to be a weird in our first two speakers the very first two they had tech issues we had echos people could enjoin didn't know how to share their screen. So we just had a lot of issues and if we had tested with every single speaker, we would have had much experience. We would have much much smoother experience. The big thing that. I ended up learning from this is you don't just want to use this that makes it seem like glorified Webinar. That was the biggest mistake that I think we made and we got that in be back as well. If you do it through things like zoom and the way it was set up in Eric, you should probably talk a little bit more about this. 'cause you did more than I did on that and especially we were able to make it seem like event where you're not working learning from others almost like in Nevada versus something that was glorified Webinar that would be done over the computer. Yeah we got really good feedback from one of our members Ricardo. He was making it a key point to just say, Hey, look, we use hop in initially because the week before I spoke at virtually bend had nine hundred people or so it had some interesting features which we can talk about. But we ended up switching back to zoom meetings not zoom Webinar like right now we're on zoo but our and you can see we have a couple of days in here we can't see their faces we can't really interact. So instead what we did is we did a zoom meeting. We did it Brady bunch style so we can. See Everyone's face and the presenter would speak and then people would amuse themselves and then they would basically asked her questions and then it would be an interactive thing instead of someone reading the text and entering the human connection the bonding there is more of that granted were not in person but that what much further and the final thing I'll add to zoom is we ended up using breakout rooms, breakout rooms, put us into separate groups of five where we talk about Seo or different books or different prompts that allowed for even closer bonding. So we're glad that we switched back to zoom for those

Urgency Behind Nevada's New Bill That Expands Mail-in Voting

"News the Nevada Senate approved a bill Sunday to implement a majority mail in election in November. In their argument Senate Democrats asserted that the measure assembly bill four was needed due to concerns over the Chinese corona virus they cited long lines at the pulse. And close contact with others. The measure which was passed with a thirteen eight vote was not supported by any of the Republican members. Well, that's good that the Republicans Nevada still have a backbone president trump then promptly got Nevada to trend on twitter. He said this in an illegal late night coup Nevada's clubhouse governor. Made it impossible for Republicans to win the state president trump wrote on twitter. Post Office could never handle the traffic of male in votes without preparation using Cova distill the state see you in court. The president is one hundred percent right on this. If we allow mandatory mail in voting to happen unchallenged, we are headed for the biggest disaster of an election in our lifetime. There is a reason why the Democrats want mail in voting it is ripe for fraud. People might say, well, Charlie what about absentee voting that is always a small sliver of the amount of votes in the absentee ballots are always the majority of the voter fraud claims as they are. In some states, absentee ballots are anywhere between five to ten percent. Sometimes, there is lows two percent in states like Oregon, which is complete and Total Democrat control. The only way to vote you cannot show up on election day in Oregon. It is all vote by mail and it starts in early October leading up to election day. Because of this Democrats US organizing tactics to be able to do a thing called ballot harvesting ballot harvesting is how in Orange County California Republicans wants controlled five five US congressional seats in Orange County after the last midterm election. Republicans lost all five. Now Republicans were leading some of those seats such as young Kim on election night. But then all of a sudden new ballots were found. Mail in ballots were discovered. And the Republican candidates. Fell behind and behind and eventually lost the race. The way that voting should work is through independent certification with election judges in decentralized fashion to have the most people centered citizen-focused way of voting. What do I mean by that? It means that when you have a local precinct that is in charge of the election for that one precinct, not the post office of the Postal Service you think called election judges, those election judges. Are Bound by the law and they usually represent both political parties Republican. Democrat, to make sure that there's no funny business now, it's not a perfect system voter fraud absolutely exists but a vast majority of voter fraud is almost always voter registration fraud and ballot fraud with absentee voting. So, if we admit that the Democrats are pushing for mail and voting harder than anything they've pushed for in recent memory, the question should be why. They say it safety. Mean that's such nonsense. Worried about people gathering. Then shouldn't they cancel? The local marijuana dispensary or the casinos in Nevada. In Nevada, you are able to go to Caesar's palace in Nevada, you're able to go to the Venetian in Nevada, you can go to a local restaurant. and. They'd say that's perfectly fine if you wear a mask and socially distance. But it's not okay to be able to go to a local polling place. It's not okay to be able to wait six

Protest increased the spread of the virus.

The protesting I'm not sure. What do you make should How do we say Limit the protesting your government limit. The protesting I don't think that's relevant to. Well, you just said if it increases the spread of the virus, I'm just asking should be limited. Well, I'm not in a position to determine what the government could do in a forceful way. While you make all kinds of recommendation. You make comments on dating on baseball and everything you can imagine. I'm just asking. You just said protest increased to spread. I'm just asking. Should we try to limit the project? I think I would leave that to people who have more of a position to do that. I can tell you government stopped people from going to church Doctor Falke. Yeah. Last week in the Calvary Chapel Case. Five liberals on the Supreme Court said it was okay for Nevada to limit church services. 100. I mean, justice, Gorsuch said it best, he said. There's no there's no world in which the Constitution permissive added a favor Caesar's palace over Calvary Chapel I'm just asking. Is there a world where the Constitution says you can favor one First Amendment Liberty? Protesting over another practicing your faith. I'm not favoring anybody over anybody. I'm just making a statement. That's a broad statement that avoid crowds of any type. No matter where you are, or what he wants him to say is is insane.

Panasonic Talks Energy Density

Panasonic Talks Energy Density

"Are at with that out of. Of the way, let's get sort of the main news here, and this is on Panasonic batteries. This is per a Reuters report, they spoke with Panasonic's of US v Batteries and they report quote Panasonic corporate plans to boost the energy density of twenty. One, seventy battery cells supplies to test link by twenty percent in five years and commercialize a cobalt free version in two to three years. The head of its US battery business said and quote they also report that Panasonic has already cut the content. Content to less than five percent of Nikko Cobalt, Aluminum Cathode, which by the way I have to apologize about because the other day in an episode, I, was saying nickel manganese cobalt. So embarrassing, but anyway, Rogers also says that Panasonic already with the twenty one, seventy cells has improved energy density by more than five percent, and while they declined to link the further twenty percent increase to Tesla's future vehicles, they did say that in September, they will start converting lions at gigafactory Nevada quote as. As a prepares to further boost the energy density of the cells Takemoto set and quote. So overall I think pretty exciting information here though a bit limited in terms of what we actually can learn from it. We don't know if the energy density here for his two volume metric or gravel metric, and we also don't really know if that increase in energy density will coincide with a reduction in cost as well. Though presumably, it would because if you make more energy dense battery cells you need. Need fewer battery cells to actually power the thing that you were trying to power with those batteries. So I think presumably cost beneficial as well, and unlikely that Panasonic would be pushing for something if there was not eventually going to be a cost benefit from it or at least be affordable enough to have a viable use case at scale I think it's also exciting that they have a cobalt free version in the works for two to three years from now, but the twenty percent energy density. Density improvement is a five year goal. So presumably, that twenty percent increase would be after extracting out all the cobalt from the process thinking about that twenty percent increase in energy density though over five years from compound annual growth rate perspective, that's three point, seven percent per year, which I think does sound about right looking at the historical progress. If we look at the Model S. from two, thousand, twelve to two, thousand, twenty, the range on the Model S. increased from two, hundred, sixty, five miles. Miles EPA all the way up to four hundred and two miles. So that's a five point, three percent compound annual growth rate in the available range. But of course, not all of that is attributable to the energy density of the battery cell. There's a lot of efficiencies within the powertrain and even things like wheels and tires that are contributing to that rate. So the improvement in energy density is likely below that though again, really it's improvement in energy density per cost. That is most important. Important looking forward, if that twenty percent improvement was applied to the range on the model three today and the Monterey today that would put the model three range at about three, hundred, eighty, six miles up from three, hundred, twenty, two miles if it were just a straight twenty percent increase and then similarly for the Mata, why it would go from three, hundred, sixty, miles, two, hundred and seventy nine. But again, that's just the increase from the battery cells that assumes no other progress throughout the rest. Rest of the powertrain or the battery pack or innovations that allow for reduction in weight of the vehicle, things like that. That will also, of course, happen over time. The other option that energy density improvements allow for is obviously to put the same amount of energy in less space or with less weight, which would improve the vehicle's efficiency. So even with the same energy, call it seventy, five kilowatt hours, the vehicle would travel farther because of that increased energy density and may be the range. Range go up to three, thirty or three forty with the same energy capacity. The overall point here is that better improvements are going to keep happening. Those improvements are going to open up a lot of different options for electric vehicle makers and Tesla's best positioned to capitalize on the Trent.

"nevada" Discussed on How I Built This

"So just a few days ago. Ken Grossman and I were supposed to be sitting side by side on stage at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco for a live. How I built this show to hear how he built. One of the biggest craft beer companies in the country but instead that events like every other event was cancelled. But we didn't want to miss out on getting a chance to hear Ken story because too good and to inspiring to wait until we can all go out again so we asked Ken to record himself from his home just outside Chico California and by the way that's how it's going to be for a while because our staff our guests me probably many of you were all at home now and starting to adjust to this very weird new reality. I'm gonNA confess something here. I feel a little bit conflicted about doing a show that celebrates building and creating when so many businesses are in trouble now. Somebody people are worried but I also think of this show as a place of hope and possibility this is GonNa be a long challenging journey for all of us and we're going to need stories of people who can inspire us with the challenges they've overcome and the battles they've waged the odds. They've defeated to build something truly special. Sierra Nevada. Now before we even get into Ken Story. We wanted to hear from him about how things are going with managing the crisis so far and of course in one way the company is in better shape than most because lots of people are in need of a beer these days so in places where they can get it they are buying it. They're buying a lot of it. And when I spoke to Ken a few days ago he told me his production facilities are still open but he has no idea how long it might last a lot of the businesses that we depend on to sell our products are severely challenged right now and you know having this kind of financial disruption happened to tens of thousands of small family owned and run bars restaurants With the stores across the nation is going to have a huge toll on the lives of those people. The economy's in those communities so it's it's been one of the most difficult and stressful weeks in our existence I've had a lot of them over forty years. It was a lot of sleepless nights but this is sort of the pinnacle of of things for us to have to work through an and to make decisions about and yes over the course of building. Sierra Nevada beer can has had a lot of sleepless nights starting with trying to build a craft brewing company in his twenties with barely any money. When people didn't really know a craft beer was in fact when can introduce his now legendary Sierra Nevada Pale Ale to his friends in one thousand nine hundred most of them thought it was undrinkable but today his company is the third largest craft brewery in the US. After Boston. Beer Company and yelling in Canton and his family owned one hundred percent of Sierra Nevada but making money and becoming rich from beer was far from Kansas at his core. He is a beer brewer. Not a businessman totally obsessed with the process with the hops and barley in the mall to the strains of yeast and his interest in brewing and fermentation actually started when he was a kid growing up. In La's San Fernando Valley. We had a a small neighborhood group of boys Growing up through elementary school. So I met my neighbor I think it was second grade and his father was a you even back then was making home. Beer and wine and Was a Super Very progressive person for the time. He's into cooking and baking and for Manning and culinary arts as well as Being a cyclist so he was into bikes. Which later got into cycling and touring and also was a scientist? He was a meddler just in work for Rocketdyne and so he sort of had all those passions of Of Life and and I guess it really appealed to me so I was around fermenting beer from probably the age of Seven or eight or so And seeing things boiling on the stove every weekend when he would brew and his Senate. I were best buddies for many many years. I ended up moving up to Chico when he attended Chico State. What was your friends? what was it? What was his dad's name must name the cow Molar County since passed away But Calvin Molar He was this a very early adopter of of the. The science of brewing mortem brewers back in that day. You know. We're using English old sort of crude books on how to make cheap beer but not necessarily You know how to make great beer and had a had a do it at home with sort of a science based yeah so He approached from a scientific side. So here here's what I'm wondering you are in high school and I guess from from whatever you bought your first home brewing Kit Around that time Which I think a lot a lot more high school juniors today would put in in the early seventies certainly not early sixties. Early in common Did you did you WanNa make beer because you liked it and wanted to drink beer? Or what was the? What was the thinking behind buying a home Brooklyn When I was young so I couldn't buy beer and so I just wanted to experiment with making bear. That was it. Yeah and he'll today if you want to brew beer you just go on the Internet and order the hops come in pellets and you know wherever you need and then you just do. It was it. Was it a little more complicated than nineteen sixty-nine It was so there were actually some Homebrew supply stores just getting started. And you could buy beer and wine. Making supplies at that. Point pumping was still illegal but They did Nobody got arrested for providing mulder hops. But if you think back to that era there was still a bit of a carryover from prohibition brewing and so you could buy malt extract even at hardware stores and it was You know sold with a crock and packaging east and a little block of some pretty lousy hops. But there there were ingredients that were still available. During the prohibition era and no good information on how to make great beer home there was just For those people who wanted to brew Abacha Cold Brew. And how how? How early batches I mean were. They terrible terrible. You put them in a closet and your house. Where did you go? I had to hide. 'em Hide Him from my mother and Actually made a batch of wine. I which was pretty tragic. Which was out of welches cantwell just grape juice and some bacon east a can of grape juice cans anymore And then I got some all extract and and being. A bunch of me did a plastic bucket and and started bruin a little bit. How did you? How did you know you weren't making like you know Botulin Eum or anthrax or something? I guess one of the things about beer making is that Things like that don't grow in Beer. I got you okay. alcohol the P. H. Hops are all inhibitory to Toxins not that you can't make bad beer but it's pretty impossible to make beer those kind of toxins yet. All right so you. You're you know doing home brewing and and I guess when you Graduate High School in Nineteen seventy-two You decide that College is really going to be. You're saying that you you you WanNa Kinda just get out. La Move Up to northern California. And you go you end up in Chico California a small town in In the foothills of the Sierra Nevada the idea was that's where you want to to be for a while. Yeah I got a job at a bicycle shop which was a family owned business With the father and two sons working there in a pretty frictional environment the dynamic was not great and after less than a couple of months I sort of had to change your heart and say well maybe I should go to school and so I applied at the junior college to study chemistry and ended up eventually transferring to Chico state and continued to take science classes I met my girlfriend and then later wife Through a mutual friend about the same time this is. This is your wife. Katie that you met you met her at Butte Community College matter. She was going to Chico. State.

"It's doll play to what they want to happen. They've picked him because they think he's the most incendiary candidate. So if the truly patriotic thing to me to do in this situation is Bernie is is an American who loves his country and wants. What's best for America? And we'll let the democratic process decide to feed the flames of that or to feed the distrust not just of the electoral process but of the National Intelligence Community. Which is what President. Trump has responded. You Know Bernie said get out of our election. His response was the right response. Trump was like. I don't know they didn't tell me this. Like and what university they briefing Bernie but not trump give me a break and like denouncing it and then firing people who give those reports. It's just also concerning this past like grudges. This is a a this. Filling every position with loyalist is so so troubling especially in the face of the knowledge that Russia is most certainly trying to interfere again. That's right and I know a lot of people. Just don't care about the way. President trump runs executive branch. They just don't care about the personnel decisions if what impacts them in their lives is working out. Okay they're okay. I read this wonderful piece in the Atlantic that will link in the show notes. About how one of the things that has to happen. In the general election conversation is a reckoning between what his actually transpired under Donald Trump in terms of foreign policy and all the the earth is ending alarm bells that have gone off about the Donald Trump presidency. It starts out with you know. Hey we're in a protracted war with Iran and North Korea because that's what Democrats have told us is going to happen under Donald Trump for the last four years and neither has happened and it's not that his foreign policy has been hugely successful and wonderful but it hasn't been as doomsday as it had been foretold to be. I think that is both true. And incomplete because I do think four more years of the president without meaningful checks from Congress is a scary proposition. But I think the same holds true on the other side if I say to myself well. It hasn't all been a complete catastrophe. Donald Trump. Even if I think that Bernie Sanders is actually a pure Marxist. Who is into Marxism for all of the worst and most selfish reasons which I don't think that but let's say that I do which pointed out that I have to put the same container around him right because fortunately in our system it is really hard to do things and so I just think that the the Patriotic Act right now is to borrow from the British and like keep calm and carry on everybody. Let's just play this primary out. See where it goes but if if a bunch of people rush in at a very high level now in a stop Bernie kind of way that also plays right into Russia's hands because we have sown this seed of America and regular actual American voter who is not an elected official a journalist or corporate. Mogul every single thing is conspiring against you and and we gotta shake that lease this goes to something. I've been thinking a lot about and I could not agree more that to keep calm and carry on does not mean to you know not no. You don't mean this to tune out of the political process to assume the right person will win like we did in two thousand sixteen but I feel pretty passionately. It does mean to get the hell off social media because no political. Power is exchanged on social media. I Really Want Elizabeth Warren to win so on Friday. I signed up and I made calls for Elizabeth Warren to Nevada. And I plan on going to Tennessee. Which is my clothes. Swing STATE INTO KNOCK DOORS FOR Elizabeth Warren and also I'm deactivating my facebook account for lint and perhaps forever because I just think if you are concerned with this sort of interference if you're concerned with a political tenor the we all just have to acknowledge that almost nothing good comes out of us being in those places and trying to convince each other over facebook not a real exchange of power. It's just an emotional exercise that is easily exploited and manipulated not only by Russia but by the campaigns themselves and I just. I just wanted to stop. My husband keeps making fun of me because I'm like entering every room. I get into and just screaming. Facebook is the devil's playground. Like I just my passion about this is increasing by the day If we take anything away from twenty sixteen how could it not be that? That is really dangerous place to believe that that is where we should all be to talk about and to deal with our political environment. It's not it's the it's the opposite sedans playground. I'm GonNa make shirts I think. Yeah I think that's the carry on portion of keep calm because what we really need to combat that sense of conspiracy is actual agency in our own lives and you can derive that agency by knocking doors or making calls or just having conversations with the people in your life and reading and thinking critically. I think that you lose your sense of agency. When you get too absorbed in polling in punditry or if you just subject to yourself two hours of scrolling where else in my life am I gonNA put myself in a space for other people to just yell the same thing over and over and over at me and that's really? What election twitter feels like to me? is certainly what facebook feels like. It's not all social. Media is horrible but this particular use of social media to yell at each other about elections. I think it's pretty safe to say we don't have to have nuance about. It's just bad. It's really bad in it's creepy. It's hard to sift through. Yes and here's what I told my husband. I'm like think it you know. In this particular political controversy in my hometown. Everyone is just so fired up and there is a lot of ignorance around the topic. It's not surprising. Everybody can't be an expert on everything and especially if you're entering a conversation late in the game you're not going to know everything and I said you know. The thing about it is is twenty years ago. People were just as ignorant. Nobody wants to hear that. And I know that sort of an inflammatory word but I mean like people had opinions about things. They weren't completely informed on. That's just a human way. Okay particularly the American way but we just talked about it around our kitchen tables. We all didn't have to witness the entire populations lack of complete information on every topic. And I think that was a gift. Okay not because I think we can solve it not because I think People don't deserve basic human kindness and that there is space in humanity for everybody to not to be an expert on every damn thing just because information's out there on the Internet but just because it's exhausting and I don't think we're supposed to be exposed to every single person in our entire social circle. Ambience opinions about everything it's exhausting. It's not great for our view on humanity. It makes us cynical or on the opposite. It makes you a conspiracy theorist is just. It's not great. It's not great. It's feel so strongly about this is the devil's playground especially when it comes to politics. I can't tell you how good for my soul. It was two on Friday just and make calls for her and then on Saturday to turn my phone off 'cause I'm back to doing texture bots thank goodness because during our travels it really really messed with my weekly practice. But I turned my phone off. I got away from it all doing those. Two things together felt incredible. It felt incredible. And I just don't have any real desire to go back to you know scrolling through facebook and being perpetually mad at my fellow citizens and fellow community members and friends and family because they don't understand agree. Whatever it's just it's bad. It's those playground Hashtag Devil's playground. That's what makes everybody not really because we shouldn't be anywhere. Thanks Trent. I know. I almost think we shouldn't have ashtrays anymore. I've been thinking about that a lot to me. That the real issue is that social media was supposed to be about connection and what it offers instead is isolation masquerading connection offers instead the deepest forms of loneliness in this the seeking of attention and the looking for places to fit in and so around elections. That's just bad news. It's it's really bad news in and it does make you feel powerless. If you spend an hour on social media you start to think. Of course. Trump's GONNA win reelection or of course Bernie is a socialist or of course Bernie's GonNa win. Why work for anybody else or whatever it is and none of those things build up the sense that citizenship actually matters in its application that we need to seriously transform our political system.

"Look at this point for winning the majority of delegates now that we've input the Nevada results into our primary forecast so we have both results and we had some further. Polling came in overnight. We finally got some more post-debate polls from YouGov and other people so Sanders is clearly by far the most likely Democrat to win a majority we have him with almost a fifty percent chance of forty six percent and most of the non sandwiches win. There's no majority. It's a forty percent chance still. So if you look at a plurality because there could be a case where Bernie gets forty five percent of delegates. Anyone else's clothes you think he'd be nominated in that instance so he as sixty nine percent chance of getting a plurality of delegates so he's really in the driver's seat. I would use the phrase that it's his nomination to lose it's both because of his strength and because of the frankly weakness of any of the alternatives biden actually was helped a tiny bit by the goings on in the past twenty four hours. He did beat his polls by a couple of points here and there was a South Carolina. Poll that came out that showed him still eating there after the debate. And so you know. He's the one who could still if he wins South Carolina then the starts to look like a a competitive race again. Compare it doesn't mean it's fifty fifty. You probably still rather be burning. But he does have this path if you went South Carolina and we kind of maybe get the kind of sanders versus Biden. Showdown that some of the stuff. We might get all along. Meanwhile Bloomberg has not been polling well and post-debate polls his odds have fallen. Warren actually has been polling. Okay after the debate but there's not a ton of data yet but for anyone except for sanders and then Biden and maybe Bloomberg I mean everyone else is like a lot of work left to do and when not name Sanders it would be at this point like an upset for them to win the the majority to rallies is more employees could get messy. You know we do need to keep in mind that like these three states that we had so far as South Carolina. Also they all have their their curious elements right. Where is it kind of caucus or caucus primarily hybrid? Although up from past years is still relatively. Low is a pop-up portion of the state overall. So you know you see kind of fluky. Results that may or may not prove to be indicative of broader trends. But so far we've seen across the three different environments we've Seen Bernie perform well and no one else be quite consistent when we talk about the trajectory of the primary so far in large part were talking about momentum because the actual delegate totals based on the three contests so far are minimal right. They're not going to really help you win the nomination does. It seem at this point that sanders is kind of from. I were to Hampshire to Nevada and that could now make them competitive in South Carolina. Does it seem like with each contest. He's gaining more and more support or like you mentioned is Nevada more fluky because it is a caucus and his strong supporters showing up while maybe people who voted for Biden and a primary or staying home. We don't know I mean you can't really extrapolated a trend line from three data points. I thought his performance in New Hampshire was not particularly impressive given from neighboring state and got what twenty five or twenty six percent of the vote. So this is like the first performance that like the Israeli kind of deeply impressive by Bernie because of the breadth and the margins of what he did here whereas Iowa I mean we. We still don't know who officially won the delegate Count Niwa by the way I wa and New Hampshire. That was more like okay. This is kind of attritional. Parts of the Bernie Coalition. He's in the mid twenties. No one else can reach the mid twenty. Maybe Mayor Pete I mean. I don't think there's all that gray but this result is a great result for Bernie in the most diverse state so far. But we don't know right you know. In South Carolina. He is kind of now polling in the in the low twenties. The question is like would that be enough to win? I think probably not. It seems like you know Biden does seem to have at the very least like a little bit of a floor that he's found and so I think you know but we'll see I mean. In Theory. Sanders will get a further bounce from winning Nevada and being in the national conversation as a winner and so that could boost him. You know subjectively I think. South Carolina is likely to be one of the five were states for him on the Mat. Not JUST BACK AMERICANS. He does well with with some after American voters but like you know older more. Moderate more conservative white voters. It tends to be a fairly pro establishment state right. We remember for example Clinton winning by a big margin in South Carolina in sixteen bigger than the polls forecasted actually and so you know I don't want to like throw any cold water on like sanders performance but I think there is always the danger of overreacting to one event right with the model shows the models like okay. Two things we can say certainly Bernie is way more likely than anyone else to win a majority. You know however number two there is still a pathway where this kind of stays quite messy and where there's no majority and a path where Joe Biden win. South Carolina is maybe puts us back on that no majority path. I want to ask NATO question. 'cause I'm I'm a little bit. I'm not sure which argument I but I do think. There's another argument. And you mentioned you thought that. Bernie's performance in New Hampshire was not that impressive and I guess the counter argument to that which I guess I lean towards is this isn't like twenty-sixth theme when there was a clear contrast between himself and and Hillary and he crushed her. And now you have four or five. Other fairly robust campaigns going against them and he still managed to pull to pull out. I know he's a neighboring senator. Did you give any credence to that at all the comparison I think I'm not comparing verses? Twenty sixteen but I do think that the neighboring state thing matters quite a bit you can model it out and Beekman neighboring state probably is worth is worth five or six or seven points or something like that and so you know if Bernie Sanders is from Connecticut and not Vermont. I'm not sure if he does as well in western New Hampshire Musher if he wins the state right He also may have been lucky in New Hampshire that mayor. Pete had some of his debate bounce stolen by club. Shar who have kind of very similar. Overlapping voter. So that's what I'm saying. Right we are. We were one point. Five percent of the vote away. Maybe one bad amy Klobuchar debate away from a narrative where now Bernie is over two in his first two states right. Of course I think that by the popular about metric one Iowa but like these are pretty thin margin the first two states and so I think I think the big robust win is pretty meaningful here. But I'm just trying to There's a fifty fifty chance roughly speaking that when we're having this conversation week from now that Joe Biden will have one South Carolina and we're having these conversations about oh well now. There are new doubts about Bernie recipes trying to get like a little bit ahead of the game and say no other. Democrat can be remotely happy with with the hand. They have to play here but it is still. It is still pretty early and we don't yet know kind of how this will translate to other states. Yeah I do think that Gal said at the beginning of this part of the conversation about delegates not being as important in these early states is absolutely right. I've always believed that in the narrative. Either that is real or constructed by the media covering it. The the the About momentum and how many tickets are gained out of Iowa and then New Hampshire and then the Vatican. Because I was so muddled this time I think that that calculus may be changed a little bit. Maybe I wasn't that that important but Bernie Sanders clearly has momentum built up over the first three states going into South Carolina and Biden has lost so much ground in South Carolina that. I don't think it's unreasonable. To believe that Bernie could win in South Carolina. There's still two more speaking of data points to come. Which is what happens in in the debate. This week I I that could affect the the polling and if Clyburn is going to endorse on Wednesday morning might he be waiting to see if Biden does all right in that debate to move forward with an endorsement or not and both those things could have an impact on the polls in South Carolina? And I think if Bernie I I don't need a nate silver model to tell me that Bernie Win South Carolina. That that he is going to be the prohibitive favorite for the nomination. And maybe even a favourite t t to get a majority of delegates. Oh Yeah if he wins South Carolina you can be a very heavy favourite. I'm pretty sure in our model. But but we're actually so our models into account for momentum that he gets it right now that Bernie's behind in South Carolina however it predicts that he'll get momentum from Nevada and therefore it makes it more or less a toss up it has biden with forty seven percent chance burning at forty three and I think the rest is mostly Tom Steyer. We haven't talked about yet who Is still kind of close in the South Carolina polls? So I'm saying like this forecast. Bernie accounts for NATTA momentum in theory may be overweight. Sit maybe at underweight sit maybe it miss weights it you know. I don't know right but we're playing in the fact that it's a big win and that usually you get a boost in national polls in the polls in the next stage when that when that happens so John. You mentioned actually another data point between now and when South Carolina votes is the possibility that the majority whip James Clyburn from South Carolina endorses. Somebody and mentioned as a preview that we're GONNA be talking to Clyburn this coming week so we'll see where he has to say about that. You know nate you said that no other. Democrat is looking at the hand that they have right now and is particularly happy so while we're talking about the Nevada results. I do want to the other candidates and talk about what hand they are actually looking at John who made up Biden and Buddha judges coalitions the two people vying for second at this point. They're clearly vying for some of the same voters. And that's a big problem for them. And that's why a mayor Pete's campaign just sent a letter to the State Democratic Party here raising questions about the results. It's why Biden for two days going into the caucus raised questions about whether they were going to be valid or not. They're playing for the same voters. They're playing for the same kind of momentum if mayor Pete were to finish in second here when all of a sudden done and I think that's relatively unlikely but it's possible that he will be able to say look at the first three states I it's it's Bernie and me one two and that's what you should be talking about. As nate pointed out earlier Biden gets second here even though it's a distant second that no one should brag about. He won't let me well of course brag about it and used as as trying to get momentum to to hold on in South Carolina and then Super Tuesday could change the dynamic because there are so many states voting and so many delegates in play and so the biggest problem for all the other. Democrats is that is that Bernie has his X. number of percent and the and the rest are vying to cut up the the the the the remaining pie and that's just a problem and that is why I think the attacks are going to be even sharper between Biden and Buddha judge in the debate this weekend. Listen warrants campaign. Now is trying to paint her. As as the Comeback Kid is opposed the Biden. Saying a lot of what she did during that debate Did Not show up in the caucuses because seventy five thousand people at already voted and they're even putting out anecdotal evidence that people showed up yesterday. We're talking about how they're sorry. She wasn't viable in their precinct because they were so excited about her. So I do think that the that the bait could have an impact again but it also might not depending on what happens. Then right nate. You said the night of the debate. That you disagreed. That early voting would prevent Warren from reaping the benefits of her strong debate because early voters were generally the kind of people who had already made up their minds and so weren't going to be the kind of late deciders. Who WOULD GO FOR WARREN? Warren did do it. Looks like better on caucus day than she did with early. Voters do think there is any sense. That early voting prevented Warren from reading some of the benefits of her strong debate. I mean any any is a low bar to clear you know..

"This. Nevada caucus results edition of the fivethirtyeight politics podcast. I'm Galen Droop at the time of this recording Sunday afternoon about sixty percent of the precincts in Nevada have reported their results. We won't have a full picture of how second and third place panned out until the remainder of the results come in but one thing is clear it was a good showing for Bernie Sanders who came in an unquestionable first place at the moment. Here's what the delegate tally. Looks like forty six percent for Sanders. Twenty percent for Biden fifteen percent for Buddha judge ten percent for Warren five percent for closure and four percent for star. We're going to discuss what those results mean the voting patterns behind them. And what comes next and here with me from Nevada to discuss our editor in chief nate silver. Hey how's IT Goin'? Schooling will thank you galen. How's Your Luck? So far in the Casino. I played a little bit of poker. Did really well the first night and not so well the second and third nights but so far the success of the first night outweighs the mediocrity from nights two and three good to hear and also with us is special. Guest John Ralston. Who is the editor of the Nevada independent and if you watched the democratic debate in Nevada you also saw that he was one of the moderators. So Hey John. How's it going? Thanks for joining us. I'm doing well but my first question is nate. Where where did you play poker? Because I play a lot so I was at the Bellagio. The first two nights and then at Aria last night. Yeah I played a lot. I'd live just look right across the way from area so I can walk and so I play there a lot but I played at Balaj was well. I was hoping to play in like the wind has like a winner. Poker classically determined that you could register till until four forty five and of course we did not really know very much about who actually got what results until right around then so it didn't work out but you know the cash games are always fun. Okay yeah okay. Poker forget forget that forget that okay so to avoid playing too much into the stereotypes of Nevada. There's obviously more to the state than poker gambling casinos etc. A lot of Nevada's weighed in last night on who they want the Democratic nominee to be so John. Let's start with you. We have results from sixty percent of the precincts looking at where the results are coming from. And what remains? How much do you expect these numbers to change? Once we have full results. Well it's a little bit hard to speculate on that I mean most of the precincts that are out Just like most of the state is from Clark County Las Vegas area and if if those hold and if if the patterns of the first half of the vote in Clark County hold than than Joe Biden is probably to hold on to second place and that seems to be a big deal only to Joe Biden and p Buddha judge who were arguing about who is the second place finisher but when you finish you know more than two to one behind the front runner that's just for the purposes of spin going into South Carolina and Super Tuesday so nate Sandra's average in the Nevada polls leading up to caucus day was thirty one percent. How big of an over performance. Worst Sanders as results last the polls predict the first instance vote so he initially caucus with when you enter the room and in that number. He's at thirty three percent. So considering there are undecideds the polls actually did really well. Then you have okay so the polls yes so. This is important right braided. Well no matter how you look but like went from thirty three percent of the raw vote to thirty nine of the vote after we allocations because he was viable Almost every precinct to the forty s in county delegates and so in each version of that. Count Bernie did better than the previous one. And so that's important the polls actually were extremely precisely right on every pull individually the you know one head right but like the pulling average was quite precisely accurate and the forecast about reallocation was accurate. But yeah so people should not view this as an over performance by sanders. This is in line with what was expected. Going into the Nevada caucuses. Yeah I mean if you look at him being way ahead in the polls anyway then you say okay well. He is comfortably above fifteen percent and no one else's and it was quite predictable. Bet He would get up to thirty nine or forty percent in the second instance. I don't think anyone knew that he would also get a boost from county delegates relative to the real line vote We don't try to forecast that but from a kind of polling or forecast standpoint than for all the concern about Nevada being hard to pull than some of these late polls the data for progress polls let showed burning in the mid thirties. That's exactly what actually happened. Based on based on the first instance vote which is what the polls are trying to predict all right so John what contributed to sanders when looking at the entrance polls what parts of the electric did he do well with he did pretty well with almost all parts of the electorate and and what those entrance poll shows number one. He's did fantastically well. With the Latino voters was showed up polling a beforehand and it was pretty clear from what was going on on the ground to end. And if you see look what happened and I mentioned this already. But the Hispanic turnout in those caucuses for the Culinary Union which is heavily Hispanic which took place mostly on the strip Bernie one almost all of those and that is not insignificant The second thing if I recall correctly and I'm sure if I were calling correctly. Nate will correct me is even in the moderate vote which it's kind of a microcosm of the entire campaign. Bernie did all right with the moderate vote because the the rest of it is being split among so many other candidates and of course that is why or at least part of the reason why Bernie. Sanders is the front runner. But there's one other thing well actually to other things if you'll permit me the why he did well here number one. It's been clear from the beginning that the most fervent supporters for any candidate are those of Bernie Sanders is core support. They're not going anywhere no matter what happens. And so he had that but he also had this time As opposed to twenty sixteen when he did well in Nevada. He had a organization. Here run by political pros. Were able to harness that passion and energy into a formidable turnout machine Both in early voting. I believe yesterday and so that that is why he won and did so. Well across a variety of demographics. Yeah looking at the entrance polls. It looked like Santa. Getting about twenty percent of the moderate vote and the outright majority fifty three percent of the Hispanic vote he also did decently well with black voters still behind Joe Biden but not by the kind of gap that we saw in twenty sixteen against Hillary Clinton so looking at Bernie Sanders as coalition broadly now given the Nevada is more representative of the Democratic Party. It's a bit more diverse. How does sanders? Coalition look in twenty twenty from two thousand sixteen. Well the Hispanic portion of it is I think the big shift right. I mean it's a little bit apples to oranges. Because in two thousand sixteen sanders was in a two way race in here. He's in a however many candidate viable race but clearly like the Hispanic vote mostly stuck with Hillary Clinton in most states in two thousand sixteen And it's a big advantage for burning out not only here in Nevada but obviously California and Texas are the two largest Super Tuesday states. So that's quite important. His coalition I think actually has become a little bit more liberal so in this state he did decently well among moderates. The twenty percent is kind of more a reflection of the fact that no one else is doing particularly well here If anything it's actually like a a more liberal coalition in New Hampshire for example it got much less of the moderate vote. So you know. It's more racially diverse and it's more liberal and those two things are working out just fine for him so far but it does kind of a little bit of a room still kind of the moderate sodomy. We go back and forth about kind of you. Know what these lanes mean the thing that kind of transcends for Bernie most lanes is age. Where if you are a Democrat under the age of fifty five or so then you probably have a good impression Bernie Sanders whether you're white black Hispanic Asian or other. You may or may not have as your first choice but you probably think of him favorably. If you're a senior citizen then you may not and Nevada is a relatively young state which also helped earn here. John we've mentioned now that Bernie. Sanders did well among Hispanic voters. And you said that he had a significant turn out operation with political pros on the ground in Nevada. What specifically was the campaign doing? Why did he do so well? With Hispanic and Latino voters and was it a turnout thing where he was just people that he already knew who supported him to turn out or was he working on persuasion in the Hispanic community and campaigning to them in a way that maybe they hadn't been campaign to before. I think it's a little bit of both. His campaign clearly made that a priority and there have been in-depth pieces written in. I know Dave Weigel at the Washington Post on a of reporting on on how Bernie appeal to Latino voters here and he and he sought coming months ago another really good piece in the New Yorker about it as well but that is why the Culinary Union when they finally decided to speak out and not endorse but speak out against Bernie By saying he was going to end their healthcare even if they had endorsed. I'm not sure how much of a difference they could have made. Because he had support within the Culinary Union already with his messaging To to to the Latino community and so turning around that big organization sixty thousand people Just is not that easy in so Bernie saw that and so he started early with them. You may recall that in two thousand eight right after Hillary one New Hampshire the Culinary Union the day after that primary endorsed Barack Obama and made a big show of it and in Obama campaign made a big deal of it but Hillary still one Nevada and she did very well in those caucuses now. She won the popular vote because she didn't understand caucus than Obama did He won an extra one more delegates but Bernie knew from his experience in two thousand sixteen. What he needed to do to to to get the Hispanic vote in the culinary. Union is the Hispanic turnout operation inside of the Democratic Party and so they were very strategic in how they behave this time. Thinking about turnout more. Broadly John How did turn out this year? Compare with turnout in past caucuses given that early voting wasn't an option. I'm still trying to get that final number. As a matter of fact I hope to have it before this podcast and I'm sorry I don't but here's what it looks like When they first had their first caucus I really state caucus in two thousand eight they got about just under a hundred eighteen thousand. I believe the number was four years ago. It was eighty four thousand They didn't have early voting either of those times. They put it in this this year. Four days of it and they had what I thought was a pretty remarkable turn out Seventy five thousand or so and so whatever. The final number turns out to be with voting. Yesterday it's going to be passed two thousand and sixteen in May get past two thousand eight again. I'm not positive which precincts are still outstanding. But there are a lot of them The the that are still outstanding. And so it looks to me like they will. At least eclipse to twenty-six they may get past two thousand eight which. I don't think anybody thought they were going to do. And in general I know caucus can have weird turnout in that. They largely attract the most enthusiastic supporters. Who are willing to spend two hours in a casino ballroom. But is the caucus electorate from yesterday reflective of the democratic electorate in Nevada. From what you can tell it seems to be or within the margin of error and it has been in past caucuses as well. No it may be different this time. Because of the early voting component I mean truly not appear caucus anymore right. It's it's a hybrid. They go in for four days and they just fill out a ballot. Ranked choice voting. They have to choose it at least three. And then those results are supposed to be integrated at each precinct. Which is why. It's taking them so long to to to count it. I also believe by the way That if the race had been close this would have been a really major issue but because it was such a blowout for Bernie and that was obvious from the first results coming in from the entrance polls. They didn't get into any trouble there and so now they're just taking their time counting all the results and double checking the pictures of the of of the the caucus site sheets. But but I have to tell you. I'm pretty sure that this is the last time we're GONNA see a caucus in Nevada and maybe anywhere. Yeah so could have been an Iowa. Two point zero if the race had been tighter. That doesn't bode. Well for caucuses as you mentioned I wanna ask you about what Sanders Chances..

"And Yeah it was again very good training and you know hanging out with the volunteers and listening to all the questions at the the volunteers bring up is always something that makes me smile and bring a brace good memories. I hope volunteer training. Like good ole time. Do you know what I mean. Yeah so what are the things that I know you did as well before caucus day itself which we will talk about is also doing some phone banking four the Democratic Party of Nevada. You tell us what those calls or even before. Because I think a lot of people probably know that you do phone banking for a candidate's campaign if you're volunteering either going out to knock on doors or you're going to do a phone calls to reach out to voters. I obviously talked a lot about the Iowa caucus knocking on doors experience. We've all had that experience before. But what is the halls or the phone banking party supposed to be for well? After my training they told me to go then go to the Nevada state Democratic Party headquarters and just just do whatever they say so. I walk in the door. It was a bustling campaign office. It smelled like a campaign office. The air conditioning was turned off and there were kids with laptops phones. I was like okay this now. I feel at home. But the calls that I was making as you say Kevin Unlike when you're working for a candidate's campaign you're recruiting volunteers to knock on doors and also to be precinct captains for the candidate that that means someone who's going to be representing the candidate at the caucus. There's something similar going on with the party. Because every single caucus location as I said needs that person who's going to function as the precinct chair this neutral arbiter of power on the caucus location and so the party has to recruit you know however many hundreds or thousands of people to actually go to each individual caucus on caucus day and preside over the caucus. So the calls that I was making where people who had signed up to volunteer to be what's called a temporary caucus chair so I was. I was given a virtual phone bank and I was. I was told to call throughout this list of volunteers. Who said that they were going to show up and caucus and not just caucus but to run their caucus and I had to call to verify if they were actually showing up and then making sure that they knew about the training and making sure they knew when what time what we're their caucus location was all that sort of stuff and and that was that was that was as fun as most reconfirmation calls. Go but it was kind of funny because there. There was a bit of a flake rate. That is people who said they were going to be precinct chairs who ended up not being precinct chairs and that that was that was interesting too and that happened literally the day before Caucus Day like the day before caucus there were people a few people. Hopefully that actually said Nah. I'm not going to actually run this caucus. Yeah so I went about my calls in my normal Jolly Way. Reconfirming people explaining. Oh yes. You're going to be there at nine. Am and they're like well. What what I can win. So and then people you know I'm going to go for the caucus then I'm like okay. We'll find make sure go out and caucus but yeah. There are plenty of people who were like. Oh no I didn't mean to actually do that so I'm not actually going to be there and so luckily it wasn't my job to replace those people. It was just to get the list of wire needed to be replaced. You know which which look so. I didn't have to actually find the volunteers that would then be plugged in in the stead of those people. But you know it is a little a little disconcerting when you think someone's a confirmed when someone is marked as a confirmed precinct chair and they're like oh no no no. Never Mind not you know. You're like okay but we've talked to you three days ago. I can see this. We talked to you three days ago and you said yes before but okay. You took the training but now you're not so you know. I guess that's the volunteering. That's just how it goes right but but they did have a contingency plan. It sounds like plug in volunteers. We had the capacity to become temporary precinct. Chairs when these supposed- temporary freezing chairs out. Yup I was actually very impressed. Because you know. It's not a very glamorous thing to volunteer for the State Party especially in a presidential year when there are candidates like Elizabeth Warren Mayor Buddha Judge Joe Biden out there that that might be inspiring to some people you know but and I. I was amazed that they were actually out of state. Volunteers especially from California. Who Like me drove out? I think that they might have gotten the the from from Harry Reid or something saying hey we want some more volunteers and a bunch of people just showed up at ten pm last night to the hall and we're all right volunteer. And in those cases they everybody had to sign a disclosure of neutral a neutrality agreements to make sure that they that they were not going to be for a particular candidate and then they were then trained as precinct chairs and and we're giving their assignments and where there were gaps from the Nevada. Volunteers that other states. Volunteers stepped up and presided over a lot of these caucus sites right. And just so folks. Don't have that Connex Harry. Reid was the senior senator from the state of the Vada as well as the Senate majority leader and he was instrumental in bringing Nevada as early voting states who the third spot in the entire calendar. So that is receiving the kind of prominence and attention that it's getting right now and we had a really good conversation with Phil Kim who used to run Nevada for Pork Cory Booker's campaign. I think two three episodes ago. So listen to that too. If you'RE GONNA WANNA Kinda like the history behind why Nevada caucus is the way it is. Today are actually believe it or not. Kevin Phil Kim was in my phone. Bank showed up. Why was you know they can call us? Why didn't get a chance to say? Hi but I was kind of way but it was pretty funny but yeah World Small World but he was also busy so he he was doing. I'm sure he had other things he was helping the party out with too. So you know. Got It okay. So let's fast forward to caucus day. Which is today as we're recording. But who knows when it will be when you guys actually start listening to this episode but just literally give us a talk? Like what time did you wake up? What did you do? What did you have to do the whole day? And what did you end up doing finishing before you went back to your hotel to record the dog with me? Well so because I have a background as a field organizer and doing higher level organizing stuff. They rather than place me inside of a precinct. They had me be what is called a hotline volunteer so adjacent to where the Party leadership sits during the caucus proceedings. There is a big room. Where there is you know about one hundred people who were just like me. Volunteers with WHO were campaign. Kids essentially with phones and laptops and the caucus is a big complicated process. So a lot of times there is confusion about rules or caucus math or heck. The Nevada Democratic Party did a lot of the the the the tallying of the Caucasus using ipads that were distributed to every single caucus locations. So if your IPAD was busted or if you know a senior citizen might not know how to type in things on an IPAD. There's any number of things that you might need a volunteer sitting on a hotline to talk to to talk somebody through in order to get through the whole caucus process so I was sitting in a big room of people while the caucus was going on receiving these in many times. Frantic calls from precinct. Chairs and site leads who were simultaneously receiving a caucus attendees and trying to sign everybody and registered voters doing all the party business and then also later on as they were doing their caucus alignments and then doing the math so the thing is that this is something that needs a little bit of training to understand the ways that you're going to be helping these people so my day to day started off. I woke up at five. Am and I was. I had to report to the Rio. The Rio Hotel in Las Vegas which is where the democratic boiler room ended up being the boiler and with the leadership sits but I was in their phone banking room essentially at the Rio Hotel at about six thirty in the morning to receive my hotline training and once we received that training training was from six thirty until eight and then they funneled us into the actual room where it was just rows and rows and rows of tables and with with with power strips and we plugged in our laptops and our phones. And we you know the precinct chairs were told to arrive at the caucus locations by seven thirty. Am So eight am. Our phones began to ring. And I was assigned to the tech hotline. Which means you know the the calls that were supposed to be followed my way where ones that we're having to do with explaining how to work the technology or so but it ends up being a hodgepodge of calls that you get because you know you gotta understand. Volunteers calling in so a technical problem to a volunteer could be caucus math. Even though there's a number you're supposed to press for the caucus math specialists or for the all the you know but so I answered a lot of different kinds of questions but the I was supposed to be getting questions about how to turn turn on. Your IPAD was really busy so interesting. And so so the cause these volunteer. Call receivers such as yourself. They were divided into different functions and categories. There was supposed to be a number for technical issues that goes to people like you and then for the caucus math issues goes to somebody else and then there might be some other topic. Basically it is categorized. Even though people didn't end up using things that way in the right and understanding that it kind of became a hodgepodge of people who was your in this corner. Why don't you just you know because it ends up? Being everybody who is in that room was was had some form of previous political experience or else that's kind of how they ended up in that room. You know so everybody could probably talk about everything so it was more like okay. You're close to that side of the room. Why don't you stay there and there are people who are like? I don't want to do math. And so they walked over to the to the logistics table or something but I was just like all right. I'm in the tech area so I'll just. I'll just stay here because this is where this is where I am and this is where I'm needed. I guess and you know I got another question for you. How many of these callers. Roughly speaking were doing this with you. Because I think one of the large issues that got exposed in Iowa caucus the barcode that was revealed later. Which is that. They were literally there. I think there were twelve people manning the phone hotline the same function that you were involved in which obviously wasn't enough and then people weren't even getting a calls returned and didn't even report the results and they just went home and when. Abed that mates sounded like you guys had more capacity than twelve people. I tell you I tell you you know. It's funny. There were twelve people doing tech calls and we were the smallest group so just to put that in perspective. You know a friend of the PODCAST Kunia Chris Napa. She was helping out with the with the caucus math side. And that was. I think the the math and logistics people had the most but there were I mean. There were more of the estimated between fifty and eighty. I think I don't know but I don't WanNa get the numbers wrong. The there were. It was a significant amount of experience. Phone bankers who were sitting in this room it was it was it was it was a ballroom half of a big ballroom. That was full of desks and it was pretty much all manned up so it was you know. More than fifty people were in that room. Ready to receive calls and it was. It was very highly organized we had. We had a a dial pad APP that would funnel the various kinds of calls to the various kinds of volunteers and at the same time. All the volunteers were trained up on the same sets of stuff so we even if we got the wrong call we could all sort of address things in the same way and there was also leadership. There you know there. There were several. There were several site leads and actually there was some pretty big wigs from DNC technology department. That I knew what I was an intern for the DNC for the DNC Data Department. Who are probably the ones who are on the back end? Doing all the designing of the of the Google Doc..

"On. Tv Don't don't don't do the pay yourself. Hey Yeah it's the first thing to me like that. Because I know my right back. He sounds on the one hand kind of indignant. What do you think your rights are given premium? If if I good interview I by myself I don't. I don't get a gummy. That he knows his rights. He knows he has the freedom to speak to us but clearly what happened. Had some kind of an impact on him. Can you tell me what the woman from the Union said to you on Saturday? Did she. Mention Joe Biden. Does she mentioned Bernie then widely here. She did one when when when we talk about ninety. I think so. Yeah what did she say about Bernie Sanders? But you don't mention don't mention somebody say is letting Febru- over the press or P. B. You have to deal with presenting. Would you like? He's unclear on exactly what the woman said except for. He should not talk with us. Without a union representative present. Okay Emmy the meeting. Mitzi yeah see meal gaseous loudly. Okay okay okay by A. Do is not the only person who has told me that the union has discouraged them from speaking with the press and finding this pretty confusing is the union trying to stop members from saying that they're supporting sanders and if so why are they trying to create this narrative where there's overwhelming disdain for Medicare for all I I don't know and on Tuesday night. The head of the Culinary Union Gio Kanda Arguello clients agrees to talk with us. I suppose so we go back to the union hall where there's this big event going on there's music and there's Taco's it's a town hall with Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar so we sit down with GIO conduct. After the communications director of the Union Bethany con is also there so gio. You're the leader of the culinary union here in Las Vegas so if a member wanted to say publicly that they were for sanders. Would you have a problem with that? No because you know what the the union believe in democratic process. And that's what we're doing this you so I want to ask you about something we've seen in. The last couple happened over the last few days so we spoke for example with one member on Saturday. Who had voted for Senator Sanders was really enthusiastic? Very excited to vote for him but then the next day we called him to ask him some follow up questions and he seemed to have really changed his heart and he said that he was told by a union representative that he should not voice his political preferences to the press to us to union representatives have instructions to steer people away from speaking to the press. Yeah so we make sure that workers know their rights and that they know that you might follow up with them right and so we just let them know this a reporter and at this point. Bethany the communications director jumps in. That's pretty much it we don't we don't tell them anything. We're not telling we haven't endorsed. It's mostly about making sure that they know their rights and protecting them on the work. We've talked about the stunning before we were. I think you've accused me blatantly and I think that's not acceptable. We represent the workers and my job is to protect them. Even after you're gone I understand that so let me tell you. What one person told us? He spoke with us. I'm not title game. One person that we spoke to said that after he spoke with us he was told that he should not speak to the press without a union. Representative President is not the policy of the union making accusations by asking Jamie Lilly. Either because for talking to the press. We're not going to say. Oh you need to have a union representative these. So I'm asking. Is it the policy of the Union and I WANNA make sure I'm asking you both? Is it the policy of the Union to tell members that they cannot speak to the press without a union representative present when policy to say? Don't talk to the press that the union with the Union wrapping their so. Why would this person be told not to speak to us without a representative President Taylor Detroit? I don't know I really don't know. Will you discouraged somebody a member from? Who's sports sanders from speaking to the press? That business no matter what I put into. Use the facts. What is the healthcare for you in? What is protecting your healthcare. And what is the noble acting your healthcare you decide? We're at upset. Is there will be three ring. I can show the Dick's my daughter similar last night. You have look look plead this. This is for my daughter. Look this is from from the followed a Senator Sanders. Look I honestly can you get? Yeah Fuck you off. You know you can really better than me over here. Look at what they say you rent fuck off. Gio Kanda okay. Randy Sanders loses them. We don't fall and a union worker gets cancer and gets fired and he or she dies. Their blood will be Ju Kinda Guay Klein who for selfish reasons. Disguised decided to spread these lies. This is a tax that uconn his daughter sent her some tweets about g Kanda specifically that Sanders. Supporters wrote after the Union. Release It scorecard using get. That's right for a modern cities. Maybe after work all day very upset going to keep him talking. Nobody can quietly nobody because this is what they doing to minorities. This is what they do into warmer colors. When you say when you eat Bernie supporters. They used to bully people and nobody has done them. But there's also Bernie supporters who are women of color. Listen but they attack these women of Color Still Janey. Because we put the facts and not going to be quiet they not gonNA put Amass. They will not because you know. I believe in democracy I do. I'm being forty years in this country. Thirty years fighting for the working family better life that he is in right now at their forty years they tell me for calf leave this country. That's right Israel daughter Nyepi and send you nasty stuff Ron cheery and then the Internet. That's right now is any woman or call or don't support what we say. Sorry for them but I gonNA fight him for the people who are a women's color and they go through Resum S. I WanNa ask you another thing. Though there are women of color who are supporting Bernie Sanders. What would you say that those women I will say look you know what if you had divisions in women's caller who being a rousing?

"So there's this air of ill-will between Sanders and the Union and it's in this atmosphere actual we're on our way to Vegas that the Union announces a press conference about its endorsement morning. Everybody welcome to the Culinary Union. I know we WANNA talk about the endorsement but before we do that so they come out and say yes. Healthcare is the big issue every human being to have a skit. We believe that by we'd be living choices to we believe that but instead of endorsing a candidate and the official announcement is we've gone in those are our goals while we doing. They endorsed their goals and their values. This every single political candidate right. Now we know vice-president buying for many years we know he's being presumably because they're worried about throwing their weight behind the wrong moderate especially in this environment when the racists still so uncertain but by endorsing healthcare as a goal they effectively have made an anti endorsement of anyone who threatens to take away that healthcare. And it's a pretty remarkable thing that there are anti endorsing sanders. Sanders is really popular among Latinos. He is seen as extremely pro union for his entire career and he's received endorsements from other unions in the state but for this union the Culinary Union. All that other stuff might be less important than the message. Fair hearing which is that a vote for sanders is a vote to eliminate the very thing. They've worked so hard to create so with all this for curious to see how members are reacting. So we're back at the Culinary Union Hall. Where early voting has started. Do you mind if we ask you really quickly. Who you're voting for to have to do anything and because Nevada has a caucus it's a little bit different My candidates are still buying Tom. And instead of picking one person people rank their preferences those month three candidate. And why are they your three candidates now? Joe Biden been with US ever since day. One and amy. She even support Union as well and Tom Sawyer about you can keep doing sean. So and is the insurance health insurance issue for you the most important issue Okola. We've got the best insurance in America. It take me and my family as we're around but failed the newborn. Yeah see we noticed that a lot of people are holding these pieces of paper. So what are you holding? This is the paper for the Union the Union and we realized that it's the same flier that had been texted and emailed and passed around in break rooms all over the Strip to see. I I see that the Union scorecard on the paper. You've highlighted Joe Biden. Judge Amy Klobuchar. Okay came Bernie Sanders. She wrote no underneath. Okay I'm putting up what they want. So it's clear that many people are voting with the union in mind and their healthcare times. You mind if I ask you. So then there's this sort of fascinating encounter. We have our I see. You're wearing a Bernie. Pin. So is it correct to assume that that's revoted for we'll know voting for Insurance on the. You know a couple of candidates who were gonNA keep our attorney going for Joe Barter Amy. Something and the other lady wearing Bernie Pin if you voted for some video because I'm a supporter for him. No but It was something totally different than but I do did come in with Bernie Sanders spin. I'm sorry can you explain that to me what it means to be a support but not vote for him well? This wasn't what we weren't voting for the president's on this one we were holding for What do you call for insurance to keep our insurance going though you are voting for who should be the presidential nominee no? That's not what I was wondering. What were you told? Don't WanNa do this any more? So this guy has clearly gotten the message. This is about health care so much so that he takes it literally and thinks that he's voting on his healthcare not choosing a presidential candidate in which case he would've voted for Bernie Sanders. Just curious to ask you about who you voted for Bernie Sanders all all the way. All the way why now we do meet Union members who chose Sanders but I like Bernie Sanders so much because he's never changed. Interestingly many of these people we speak with say that they haven't gotten a message from the Union telling them that vote for Sanders would take away. Their healthcare. I candidate is Bernice Bernie Burnett others have and they don't care or they like him for other reasons. One of the biggest thing to me as the burden is planning to to give the free school kate. My son is Nicole. Healthcare is just not their top issue. I'm I'm reported with the New York is can I ask you voted for number? One Bernie Bernie Sanders. Yeah so at some point. Clarinet is the Austin talking to this guy who looks to being in his sixties and it turns out. He's been in the Union for twenty nine years and then I make deal. Media Works at a casino called the Golden Nugget. Ed Utility Porter is Cling carpets Polish. The Mammal. Working in. The high place. Asked you this. Who did you vote partner? We answer yet Bernie Bernie Bernie. Yeah we love back. Yeah yeah is any. So we know that Bernie talking Medicare for all and replacing. No No I. Eighteen is a better system you know is for all math. What few people is for all people? Are you worried at all about your great? Medical care is okay. It's okay because you're not a minority. People get access a lot of people. Don't have boxes now. It's a cost money. He if we want to follow up tomorrow are you working so we say goodbye to make deal which was coming Nubia charity and we notice that this woman who had been sort of standing around hovering as we were talking with him follows him to his car listening to everything. I say they are listening. What are you she was so somebody union is here kind of mantra. And there's lots of press here sorts of kind of easy to understand why but they're kind of listening to the conversations and then they've they've followed after. The conversation ended seem to be following up with them. I presume asking what they've said..

I WANNA be able to use my voice to reach my community which all communities in just get to know my neighbors and get to have been more political more involved so that we feel we.

Talking to predominantly Latino neighborhood here. He's Los Angeles relive. Met here in Vegas. Where a lot of people like him and they liked his policies There was lack of name recognition. I think in the beginning of the year. They didn't know he was never heard of him. Who's this Guy Indiana? He's young the gun guy is what I heard a lot in the beginning. Oh yeah the young one but the more people get to know and the more they hear about him the more thing like him and I think.

You're not trying to divide to to get your way. We're trying to create this community. That will reach a solution. These are complex questions complex issues that require unification first and then from there a solution will evolve but I feel like you said the sometimes do what people would say. Who's Pete You would speak to the DAD and the house in Spanish? And would you say just introduce myself? I didn't get to know them Tell them about the candidate. I support and the reasons why Just invite him to invents so that they can hear what he has to say and they can come to their own conclusions. I'm never after trying to sell on anything always wanting to just share information And I feel like even the other day at the rally. There is complex question that was asked in Spanish and he just you know he puts his best foot forward trying to answer in Spanish and I was like. I don't know how I would've answered that question. It was a minute long recorded. It was like a minute long answer in Spanish. He wants to meet motors where they are and he wants to have those conversations and he also I appreciate that. He's not going to compromise his values and what he brings to the table just to get your vote At the Fox townhall that we're listening to a couple of weeks ago. There was the question about pro-life Democrats and he was not willing to compromise on his answer about a woman's right to choose and I value that I've want somebody. We may not agree one hundred percent on every single issue. But I want somebody who's going to stand by his values and stand by what he believes and not try to convince me for otherwise if he knows what Hebrews okay finally Caitlyn. I want you to read.

"In the meantime I connected with our Las Vegas Political Writer extraordinaire former deputy editor of Latino rebels Now he runs a great site called Enclave and also he has a podcast called. Remember the show. Hector Louis Alamo. He writes for Latino rebels. He's written some amazing pieces and I connected with Hector to talk about the caucus and the lead up to the caucus and the debates and other things he covered and he's out in Vegas on Boston. And here's a conversation that we had hector a man. Oh Hey I feel like a news organization because you've been out in out in Vegas area in Nevada right right. I'm trying to correct myself because my my Spanish always i. I'm trying to not mispronounce state even though it's flipping Spanish word. I wrote something on that. I went to in two thousand sixteen because trump with got in trouble for saying Nevada. It's Nevada not Nevada and people were like boo boo here Nevada. Now Mike No. It's actually Nevada is actually Nevada right. Well listen so you've been. I have so many things to talk to you about but you have been filing. I think the best way I can put. It are sort of essays. I don't even think they're columns. I think they're like observations. And you know you and I've always said like political writers like you're you're you know you're in the. I said it's like you can be like the Enduring Hunter S. Thompson. And you are so. I mean the way I see it is that you know. Especially like the Peop- the Latinos. Let's say let's keep it to Latinos deals that I know personally family and friends data. Don't they're not going to read straight out political columns and articles? They might read a funny weird story about election about the surrounding an election. You know they might read that but they're not gonna read. They don't follow news and they're and they're educated right there. They have college degrees but they don't for whatever reason follow Latino or they don't follow a news article so I'm just really writing for them. You know you've done a fantastic job. You know that I'm a big Fan. I mean I think you're one of my favorite writers and I say that to you all the time so listen. Let's talk about the state I mean. Let's just let's just be up front so that people know You are caucusing. You WanNa Save. Your caucusing for yeah. I'm calling for burning. I mean I don't think I've I've been I've been in the Bernie camps in two thousand sixteen right. Yeah right so so. Let's get that out of the way that doesn't mean that we can't have a conversation because you've been out you've written great pieces. I thought your piece was was just spectacular. And you're going to do another one and you've been filing and following the scene so before we go because I want to do is go through the each candidate and also the debate and then but I want to give me the general sense of this week in the state right now because there has been early voting. What's the buzz? What are people saying? Well you know. We had four days of early voting in my understanding that. That's the first time that that's happened. We've had early voting in in a caucus. I'm also hearing that. The caucus set up. His New Nevada used to have primaries and now we have a caucus caucus but a poll just came up with something. Like three and four Nevada's WANNA go back to the primary System but anyway this four day Early voting a primary caucus thing where you pick three candidates and then those those candidates are sent to the caucus. Which is on Saturday? February twenty-second what I'm hearing is that everywhere. Had Long lines hours long. I I met one woman at the CNN. Townhall on Tuesday at the Sahara Hotel and casino. She said that she went on Saturday. It was so long that she came back on Sunday There wasn't enough volunteers places so it it doesn't look good. It looks kind of IA ISH heading into Saturday. You know you just said it was Iowa Ish but what's the mood I mean? What are people like? You're talking to people you have. You have family of friends you you know. What are people saying in your circles? Or what what is the narrative being shared in the state about the top the front runners? I Know Sanders is definitely up there but yeah I mean I I think the latest polls show that Sanders said thirty five percent polling in Nevada and then second and third were like at Sixteen Fifteen. I think it was Biden and Buddha judge. I mean there's you know there's two camps and it's the same camps really that we're in two thousand sixteen you know do we. Do we go for a safe candidate. That can beat trump or there. We go for somebody who is is Promoting or pushing for the same kind of radical change that trump was pushing for in two thousand sixteen but obviously Bernie represents the diametrically opposed position to that. You know so there's people you know I mean people you know I i. I've a rich friend WHO's for Bloomberg. Says you know we need an asshole to beat an asshole You know there's people who like Buddha judge right. 'cause there's especially in in the suburbs around the Las Vegas Buddha jesuits very popular in the in the in the in the suburbs I filed that one dispatch when I met a British last spring of. That's right and it was. Yeah you did all these dispatches as well like I I I completely forgot about those I have. Yeah but you didn't want on Bernie you did one on on booth you did Kamala Harris. She's no longer in the race. Yeah I mean I went to that Bernie Rally what which is last. March and it was huge. You would have thought that their election was happening any day. It was huge a huge big field. A bunch of people were there was a concert. Talk to me about Latinos with with these candidates in general. I mean what's what's Are People excited as you know and thank you for? Thank you for hooking me up with that group make. The road dead ended up being last night yesterday. I was with them for much of the afternoon and I even stayed with them to watch the debate party because they they had a debate watching party at their community space and they had people. You know the whale all kinds of people from the from the community who brought their kids similar about the same more about that. Because like I I wanna know like what's the mood what did you. What did you find out? These guys are bad ass. Like they're you know they're they they've come out and endorsed. Bernie and every so everybody who goes for for Bernie. They had a debate watching party at their space chair. Setup they had Keitel's they had called earlier polio. They had gone. Shah's they had dump equal. They had everything you know. And they were playing this debate of Bingo. You know which had a thing on me but you know it had like immigration bilingual English ones. The other side was Spanish and they had self like you know the wall I if things get mentioned right and to debate during the break you know. They're they're organized would say you know. So what did you hear mentioned and so you here? You see these like fifty sixty seven year old Latinas Latinos. It's actually very dominated by Latinas. I should I should point out saying what they've heard any crapping whenever Bernie would clap back at boot Chad or or somebody. Yeah let me ask you this it was intergenerational it was it wasn't just a lot of young it was very you know you know. The cameras are very young. You Know High Schoolers Eighteen nineteen twenty two and You know very young but then the people who were there at the debate party were older. You know forty fifty sixty seventies So it was entered intergenerational Latinos Filipinos in there. There's white people there you know so let me ask you. What was you know? Because that's one of the narratives that you hear right. That old people don't vote for older people. Don't vote for Bernie Sanders and I'm not trying to like make this a Bernie Sanders. But did they know that is that is a narrative? Yeah so what did they tell you? Did anyone tell you why they they? They're choosing vote for him. Well actually I got to tell you know you learn a lot when you just talk to your Uber driver. I was talking to this uber driver that she had to be. Maybe fifty six Tina. You're having a newborn. We got to talking about Uber. We got talking about the election and she said she liked Bernie. You know because she's talking about how working ferber's sucked how they take most of her money. They don't give her they give her you know less than half of what what she could. She gets to see what they're what they charge and then they gave her like less. She says less than half of what they charge. And she's like you know I'm for I'm for Bernie because he's the only one who seems like he's going to make things fairer. You know mytalk too when I went canvassing with these two.

Candidates are already looking toward New Hampshire opportunity. So thank the people of the Hampshire for a great victory tonight. Moderate candidates people to judge and Senator Amy closure trailed sanders to random breaking news the Democratic presidential race where a national poll out this morning shows the former New York mayor is now in second place with nineteen percent support behind Bernie Sanders Bloomberg whose rise at the polls field by more than three hundred million dollars. An AD spending mayor Bloomberg has not appeared on a single debate stage or a single ballot. But that will change tonight. It's Alex Burns in Las Vegas where Wednesday nights democratic debate was held ahead of the Nevada caucus this weekend from NBC News. The Democratic presidential debate live from Las Vegas Nevada. This was a debate. We were all really waiting for the first time. Mayor Bloomberg has appeared on the stage and really is the first time he has engaged with other Democratic candidates at all since entering the race polls released over the last few days have shown Bloomberg overtaking Joe Biden Nationally. As the moderate runner up to Bernie Sanders the front runner. Thanks to hundreds of millions of dollars that Bloomberg has poured into advertising but for most Americans. This was the first time that they have really been introduced to the man himself so going in we knew that all the other candidates. We're going to try to make that a rough introduction to scuff up the glossy image of himself the Bloomberg puts in TV ads. And right away they did. I think we need something different Than Donald. Trump. I don't think you look at Donald Trump and say we need someone richer in the White House are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns of harassing women and Supporting Racist Policies like redlining and stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk which went after African American and Latino people in an outrageous way throwing folk close to five million young black men up against the wall. That is not a way. You're gonNA grow voter turnout. They of course after and Frisk is invasive policing policy as mayor of New York Mayor Bloomberg at the beginning of this debate. You took some incoming fire on this. Next topic's let's get into it at two thousand fifteen. This is how you described your policing policy as mayor quote. We put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. And you explain. That is because that's where all the crime is and early on NBC moderator. Lester Holt asked to address it. You went on to say the way you should get the guns out of the kids hands as the throw them against the wall and I apologize for that policy that what does that kind of language say about how you view people of Color or people in minority neighborhoods. Well if I go back and look at my time in office the one thing that I'm really worried about embarrassed about was how it turned out with stop and Frisk and we started. We adopted a policy which had been in place the policy that all police departments use of stop and Frisk. What happened however was it. Got Out of control from the beginning. He struggled with his responses. We have to keep the lid on crime but we cannot go out and stop people who you know. This was the number one question that Bloomberg would have known was coming more than any other policy issue. This is the one his campaign as worried about from the start of the race. But I've SAT. I've apologized. I've asked for forgiveness but the Bloomberg is not a man known for his political agility. His comfort expressing contrition or for his skin and it showed albums and if we took off everybody that was wrong. On this off this panel everybody. That was wrong on criminal justice at some time in the careers. That'd be nobody else up here and the attacks were unrelenting up until this point Elizabeth. Warren has mostly avoided direct confrontation in debates with other candidates. She's been calling herself the unity candidate but she took a totally different approach. A far more aggressive approach and Mike Bloomberg was her favorite target. I like to talk about who were running against. She landed some of the most stinging blows in the debate drawing a connection between Bloomberg and public enemy number one for the Democrats a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about mayor. Bloomberg Democrats are perhaps the most contentious exchange of the night and the toughest one for Bloomberg was a lengthy back and forth between him and both and Joe Biden about a number of women who have signed nondisclosure agreements with Bloomberg and his company. He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many Finnish comedies? None of them accused me of doing anything of than maybe they didn't like joke. I told and let me just let me. Be Agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet. And that's up to them. They signed those agreements. And we'll live with Warren challenged him over and over to release those women from the NBA's and let them speak openly about their experiences when you say they signed them and they wanted them if they wish now to speak out and tell their side of the story about what it is they alleged. That's now okay with you. You're releasing them on television tonight. Senator said he would not do some of the company and somebody else in this the man or woman or could be more than that. They decided when they made an agreement. They wanted to keep it quiet for everybody's interest coming to sign the agreements. And that's what we're going to let. The question is are the Germans but the latest is what these attacks reflect about the state of the Democratic race and the urgency that the candidates are feeling in this moment Bernie Sanders. Lead is looking increasingly. Strong heading into the Nevada caucuses and as we talked about many times part of that has to do with the fact that the more moderate candidates dividing the votes amongst themselves making it harder for any one of them to emerge as a clear alternative to sanders now incomes Michael Bloomberg with all his money and his power and name recognition but so far he has done more to slow down fell moderates than to thwart Bernie Sanders. Senator winning when you say disown these attacks and you didn't personally direct them. I believe you both got ask yourself. Why did this pattern arise? Why is it especially the case among your supply? Don't think this is actually the case. That's just not true. Look people that Mandela wasn't just Bloomberg on the defensive. The other Democrats also had to take on Sanders country we have the best socialists in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What I miss. Well you'll still. I work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House to take on each other's ourselves. Are you trying to say that I'm down or you mocking me? Hearbeat trivial was more open. Hostility more personal bitterness in this two hour debate than in perhaps all the other debates combined. And that's because the stakes for the candidates are higher now and for many of them really for almost all of them. Time may be close to running out. So that's the latest.

"It's Wednesday February nineteenth. Welcome to skim this. We're breaking down the most complex stories of the day and giving you the context on why they matter what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Maybe not if your Senator Bernie Sanders. He's facing criticism from one of the most powerful unions in Nevada over his medicare for all plans. We'll explain why this could impact the upcoming caucus there as well as the entire Democratic primary then. The Corona virus outbreak means half of China's. GotTa stay home and manufacturer saved. That's causing headaches around the world. We're here to make your evening smarter. Let's skin this. Chances are if you've ever visited Las Vegas members of Nevada's Culinary Union helped make your trip a bit more comfortable. They probably pour you a drink at the bar. Cook the food if that casino buffet or refreshed. You're towels the sixty thousand workers in that local union. Help keep the tourism industry in Las Vegas and Reno running labor unions have been struggling around the US but the Culinary Union strength in Nevada is impressive. Researchers from all over the world have studied it. They're impressed with its ability to unite a largely female and largely Latino workforce in what our normally low wage jobs and to win those workers key benefits me agree is a professor of labor geography at Cambridge University in the UK and spent a decade studying the Nevada Culinary Union. They really have managed to offer work or something beyond increase wages English as a second language help with citizenship a culinary academy where they do their own training lots of ways in which they really become important to union members lives but the unions leaders are playing another big role this week by having a say in the next Democratic nominee for president that's because one major benefit the union one for its workers is coming up a lot right now. Pbs NEWSHOUR AIR BIG ON IT last year. The Union is negotiated. Generous employer paid benefits including top tier health insurance. More than one hundred forty thousand workers independence. Get Free Care at the unions clinic and pharmacy the Culinary Union mostly endorses. Democratic candidates in local state and national elections. Even though that's probably not gonNA change this year the way some Democrats are talking about health. Insurance has the culinary union nervous. We need to expand Medicare to cover every man woman and child as a single playoff national health. Care Program Bernie Sanders may be the loudest cheerleader for Medicare for all. But he's not the only one I have a plan for Medicare for all in on Medicare for all I am proud to stand with my colleagues and friends and support Medicare for all Medicare for all would change the way healthcare works in the US in major ways instead of people getting health insurance through their jobs or paying for out of pocket everyone would be covered by the government and under most proposed. Medicare for all plans. The private health insurance industry would pretty much disappear. That's why the Culinary Union is worried. They say they lose the quality. Private health care that they fought so hard for. Here's a report from the local. Cbs affiliate in Las Vegas last week while the Union hasn't endorsed any presidential hopefuls. Members are being warned about Senator Bernie Sanders the Culinary Union distributed this flyer to its members listing the presidential hopefuls along with President Donald Trump and their stances on healthcare jobs and immigration that Flyer. They're talking about warned that Sanders Medicare for all plan would fully replace the unions. Healthcare plan and that warning could have a major impact when Nevada vote on Saturday. In a state of three million people sixty thousand culinary union members might not be able to sway in election. But when you consider that just over eighty thousand people voted in Nevada's Democratic Caucus back in two thousand sixteen that voting block can start to look pretty important to be fair. The union had some similar warnings about Elizabeth Warren's Medicare for all plan but sanders is leading the polls in Nevada. So the Union calling him out like this could cost him the support he needs to win. Supporters of Medicare for all have argued that if unions like the culinary workers didn't need to fight for their union healthcare. They focus on fighting for other things like higher wages. We'll see if anyone's convinced by that argument on Saturday but in the meantime this fight in Nevada is getting pretty ugly Nevada Culinary Union officials. Say THAT AFTER THAT. Flyer was passed around last week. They started receiving threatening phone calls and social media messages from Sanders Supporters Sanders is condemning those threats and he emphasized his campaign supports unions though. It's unclear if that gesture is enough to end this fight. So where does that leave us? Nevada are heading to the polls on Saturday Bernie. Sanders is currently in the lead. There but now. He's facing pushback from a well organized and popular group the State's Culinary Union. A lot of contemporary unions will talk the talk about organizing but they don't actually often that type of resources that we see here with the Culinary Union being put into organizing come election time. They also know how to get people on the streets and knocking on doors for their chosen political candidate. How Sanders does on Saturday? And whether the Culinary Union put a dent in his support could be a barometer of the role of labor unions nationwide in twenty twenty election sanders actually won a number of local union endorsements so far but a lot of National Union. Still haven't picked a candidate so they might be watching closely now to see. If the Nevada culinary unions loud concerns about Sanders actually change how people vote or if members come out and say Bernie's still our guy ahead of Saturday. The Ninth Democratic Primary Debate is tonight in Las Vegas. It's hosted by NBC News Msnbc as well as the Nevada Independent newspaper and it'll start at nine pm Eastern for more on the candidates. Their policy positions and priorities check out the skin dot com slash election. We'll have a recap of tonight's debate in your daily Skim tomorrow morning..

"Threatening our our livelihood here in America and it's a matter of life and death so what about his wealth? I mean one of the monster. People are going after Bloomberg because he's a billionaire but star is a lot of money into the what's the difference between him and Bloomberg or human than any other candidate. Because I mean there's a huge difference I mean I don't even think that's that's why they're they both had money. Yeah they have money the way they got. Their money is completely different than the way they've so we didn't they treated the community is completely different. Common Somebody who leads to stamping was values and about fifty things that are wrong. Not necessarily doing something because they don't want to get tax so that's the reason you know that that. Bloomberg is running because he doesn't want somebody to take like stranglehold on his wealth. And you know to be able to pay what he's to pay in order to get a lot of tax breaks and Tommy. The ones calling that out commas a real threat to the democratic candidates he's a real threat to trump and he's a real threat to Bloomberg because Tom is Amanda Values and everything like I said once people when people find out who he is. It's not even a conversation of losing much. It's about Oh my God. I wish I knew soon. Right and And so so that's the most important part that I WANNA highlight is like. There is a comparison beyond belief You Know Thompson Anybody Anything Thomas. Somebody who has put his money where he needs to put his money him and his wife are part of the giving pledge to give half of the fortune away while their lives so Last question you know a couple of days and all the Like I said we talked about the debate. And how he's not on phase. So what's the final push for you guys? And what is you know? What is success for on Star in Nevada on Saturday? I mean what? What would you success for us? As as hoping that at the process of the collection here in the state is is has parents on it because when it is then we will be convicted. Doria's and I don't think recovery is measured by the way of getting first place like if only you know elderly and the voice of those who voted for us. I think definitely being in place in the top top tier candidates. I think is is is a victory here I think like I said hoping that the communities that are that need to be represented the need to be elevated the black and Brown community. Ap I mean the working class here in Nevada that both our folks are voting for Tom. I definitely hope. And it'll be a victory when those folks come out of the voting process and voting early votes and feeling like your voice matters I think that's because Tom someone who has invested in registering folks slow. You know definitely pushing for for voting rights and and voting access so so that is really what victory in a positive agree looks as Dante stretch or out there making calls. Knocking doors organizing. Van Me at We have I mean I'm a big. I'm a big love Tacos and you know parties at home you know. I WANNA be with us to do a party at the polls because I want people to four working really hard and maybe they don't get time to make the meal to go be go vote you know be able to go get food no and even if you're not loading and you see like grabbing. Tacos like if I go to Taco Joe. Basically tacos in Nevada on Saturday. At least you'll get some good food. It's just I really appreciate you taking the time I know. You're you're super busy. But thank you for being on Latino rebels already so much for having me out of the day. Okay bye we're GONNA probably do another caucus show.

"The same firm that developed the APP that caused all of the Iowa trebles and that was built by a firm called Shadow Nevada the State Democratic Credit Party was planning to use that firm for a bespoke APP for its caucuses. That start on February twenty-second and early voting a few days before then but it said said Tuesday that it would not be using shadow as offender would not be using that APP and that it had some backup. Plans contingency is that it would use to do something different. Moving forward will such as paper ballots. Phone what a great question. The answer is we don't know yet I spoke with molly four G.. Who is a a spokeswoman for the Nevada state Democratic Party and earlier on Wednesday she basically said everything is on the table? They're working as fast as they can and to figure out what backup plans are the best options and she specifically said quote. We know we need to get it right. Our timeline is a s S. A. P. so we'll find out soon is Nevada less likely to use any sort of APP after what happened in Iowa. Two weeks is not enough time to test new technology. Imagine certainly insecurity. Experts are saying that would definitely not be enough time to put any new solution in place especially in APP given this compressed timeline and since it would really increase the risk of error. When I spoke with the spokeswoman she basically said everything's on the table and it is possible ospel they don't use an APP in the past The Nevada State Democratic Party in its caucuses had used phone based solutions and basically this is all all about getting the information from the local precincts. That were these. Different caucuses are happening to the Nevada state Democratic Party and how they transmit that the information of the results so again in the past. They've used phones. It's possible they go in that direction this time but we just don't know for sure yet. I imagine the pressure is really early on the Democratic Party. A Nevada will it's a bigger state and it's more diverse. Absolutely Nevada is the first state with a real diverse population It's the first in the West. It's the third nominating contest. But a lot of folks look to it because it's more representative of the country and Nevada is under a lot of pressure by the Democratic Party by the presidential campaigns by election security experts to make sure that it's caucuses go.
