Virginia Is Proof Why Americans Don't Want CRT

"You. Let me ask congressman Gallagher to put on your PhD hadn't be doctor Gallagher for a moment and consider whether or not an Elaine luria understands why critical race theory is such a toxic issue. And respond if you will to the charge, it's not, I heard that on TV last night and I listened to about 5 seconds of TV. We were doing the Nixon seminar. We'll come to that in a second. And I heard a very respected commentator. It's like the Democrat trope. It's not hot in the Virginia schools. That misses the point, there is no curriculum marked CRT, but they're closing Thomas Jefferson high school to merit admissions on the basis of equity. That's CRT. Yeah, and then it's just empirically true that there is a an explosion of diversity equity and inclusion programs. Within a variety of government institutions, including the military, secretary Austin, his first week on the job, created certain positions with that in mind order to 60 day stand down in order to address extremism in the ranks, even though no one at The Pentagon can define extremism. And so it is not a made up issue. It's a real issue. I hear about it every single day in northeast Wisconsin. And I think it's bound up in this broader woke ethos that the modern Democratic Party is pushing so much of what we hear from the Democratic Party is based entirely on intersectional identity politics. And I think what we saw in Virginia is that Americans views. I mean, just average Americans, center left center right in Democrats Republicans, their views on race are normal. They don't conform to the radical intersectional identity politics stuff, the Democrats are pushing. People want to get along, they don't like racial essentializing. They really don't like it in the classroom, and they don't think the cops and the society writ large are racist. I think that's obvious from what we saw in Virginia and as for swing district Democrats, if they were inclined to think that this was just a fake issue before, I think the results in Virginia should tell them that the American people don't want CRT, they don't want the cottage industry of DEI commentators, and it's so far out of step with the mainstream that it's turning off a lot of independent voters.

Conservatives Believe Happiness Is a Choice

"We as conservatives believe that happiness is a choice. I'll let you guys determine if my wonderful comrades here are happy or not. We are. We're happy. Regardless of how bad things are falling apart in our country. We're happy to be alive. We're thankful for our existence. Happiness is a choice. If you go around trying to find happiness, all of a sudden you'll seek pleasure over virtue. If you try to go find happiness as a state, it's nonsense. And we as Christians are commanded to be joyful and all circumstances. And this is a very important point because sometimes in the northeast, this message doesn't go over well, because it's kind of a gruff group of people in the northeast at times. Sometimes you don't see the sun like half the year. I get it. It's hard. No, instead, happiness is a choice. It's a state of mind. It's something that you must commit yourself. You must work at it too. You must say, man, what am I thankful for today? And I'm not trying to diminish suffering. Let me be very clear. Everybody here has something you're going through. And it's a serious thing. And if there's a way that we can help you, I pray that that will show itself in that way. But that's not to say, what does it mean to live a fulfilling life to walk around always looking at something worthy of protesting, tearing down, deconstructing, disassembling or saying, man? If I made these ten choices if I stop drinking, if I stop doing drugs, if I stop complaining, maybe my life will improve a little

Everything is going to be through film freeway We do have a submission fee this year all past years. The film challenge has been free but with Just doing the challenge. It's a lot of it's like. We want to do a lot. More marketing in the marketing costs money.

So regular deadline for this year's film challenges november tenth. You still have time You can do a filming day you can edit and day and do whatever and are late.

I wanted to participate in the challenge. One year i actually wrote my script. And i just couldn't get anyone to get enough pete. I couldn't get a crew and actors together to do it. But i was like i'm going to keep the script and i'm gonna keep working on it and i'm gonna eventually produce it so i wrote a script. Siro my script for the mystery box challenge. This call fallout. And so i kept working on it and working on the script editing. I had my colleagues rita the detailer with me at lunch. They gave me feedback. So i just kept the script that i wrote for the mystery box kept working working working at and i gave it to my friend bridget. She edited it for me. Give me feedback. I kept ending it in editing. It got to a point where i thought it was good. And i just didn't then the pandemic again the pandemic hits and i just haven't i have not produced the film yet but i do want to. It's not really conducive to film during the pandemic. Because it's all takes place in a basement so really. The premise of fallout is. There's a group of friends who are hunkering down for an impending nuclear attack. While one of their friends is outside could be dead could not be dead Who knows and they're really freaked out in steph happens in. I don't want to give too much away. But i decided to submit that script to a couple screenplay competitions recently on film freeway in. It's gotten right now.

"Today. I'm going to do something a little different for this installment of your next dive normally tried to take you to a dive destination where we talk about the trip from a number of different perspectives. The travel the lodging the dive operator. Oh yeah the diving. Now we've been around the world. But today i'm going to focus on one particular dive that is almost in our backyard. It is one of the most iconic dives here in new england and that is the wreck of the chester. Polling off gloucester mass. The chester polling was a coastal tanker. That sank in a brutal storm on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven. The tanker had just left everett massachusetts and was bound for newington new hampshire. That information is pretty consistent in the research but there is other conflicting information about where she had been. And what cargo she delivered for example some documentation said she had previously delivered kerosene to new jersey while others indicated that the heating oil was delivered to everett mass. I would suspect that delivery to everett mass to be more likely always interesting when you Doing research to get this type of inconsistency now the chester polling was bill in nineteen thirty four at mariners harbor new york by united dry docks incorporated it was originally in the plattsburgh sacconi somewhere along the line at also known as the mobile albany before getting renamed as the chester polling at the time of its sinking it was owned by the motor vessel polling brothers and that was number one inc. I wasn't able to find who was actually named after but obviously some member of the family. So that's a little bit of history about the ship now on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven capital captain. Bert charles burgess was in command. The forecast for that day was for thirty five mile an hour winds along with fifteen to twenty foot seas. the chester polling chester. A polling left. Everett are left everett at six thirty. A m well as we all know. Forecast can be wrong. The winds built up to fifty miles per hour and to seize goddess highs. Thirty feet facing the mounting sees captain. Burge's tried to get more stability by adding more ballast but at ten thirty a m a thirty foot waves smashed into the tanker and broke it in half the captain called for abandoning the ship. Six of the seven members of the crew were saved. I believe it was the cook jail. Derosa from providence rhode island who perished the sir. The stern section of the chester polling came to rest off easter point gloucester originally in about seventy five feet of water with the bow section sinking about four miles off of eastern point in about one hundred ninety feet of water subsequent winter. Storms move the stern section to its present location about eight hundred yards off of eastern point about ninety five feet of water. I think the bottom might be a little bit deeper than that. However the stern section of the chester polling is what some folks call hollywood wreck sitting upright and is probably the most popular wreck dive off. Cape ann as that areas known. Now i- i dove the chester polling way back in july two thousand and five. It was my fortieth dive and a double dip on. The polling was part of my advanced open water class. These dyes would constitute my deep and wreck advanced. Open water dives. At that time. I was still diving in a seven. Millimeter wetsuit with the appropriate gloves and hood. I use the standard aluminum. Eighty tank with nighthawks. Thirty two. I can still remember the anxiety that had doing. The first real wreck dive in the northeast but once in the water what an amazing dive the visibility that day was thirty feet and my max step was at eighty five. Even though it was july the water temperature on iraq was fifty degrees. It was incredible to move along the deck and reach the mid mid ship section where. The tanker broken half absolutely mesmerizing but with an aluminum. Eighty you don't get much bottom time and after about fifteen minutes we headed back to the up line and after are appropriate safety. Stop we climb back aboard the boat and got ready to do it again. Total dive time was twenty six minutes the second dive that day was just as spectacular and pretty much the same profile. Let me just say in a wetsuit. It can get pretty chilly. I didn't go back to the chester polling until august. Two thousand nine and that was my last trip there. It was my two hundred and forty ninth dive but this time i did it in a dry suit and hope to get some good video of iraq. I still dove aluminum. Eighty the dive was just as i remembered and just as exciting visibility again was thirty feet. And my max. Depth was eighty two with and the bottom temperature. That day was forty eight degrees still very cold but so much better in a dry suit again however with an aluminum eighty. You just. Don't get much bottom time especially if your task loading like shooting video so my recommendation is that if you are planning to die the polling you might want to consider a little bit bigger tank something like a steal one hundred or going to doubles. I know that i wouldn't consider going back with anything less than a steel one hundred tank. How do you get to the chester polling back. Then we use cape and divers but they closed up several years ago and recently the dive boat cape and diver to was purchased by several guys from boston. An air now operating regularly chart regular charters again became an diverse to is a forty five foot. us coastguard registered dive vessel. It is spacious and right now with limited divers on board you get plenty of room to get ready and dive but you don't get a lot of but you don't get a lot of time because you don't have a lot of time to get ready because the is only a few minutes from the dock so be prepared one thing. Different about northeast wreck diving. Is that as a diver. You need to bring all your gear that includes tanks weights everything. It's not like diving at a resort. Don't get caught short by not being prepared with all your own stuff now. Here's an interesting element. That i discovered during my research. It appears that in nineteen sixties. The chester polling was length lengthened. By maybe twenty six or so feet. That doesn't sound like much. But at the time of her sinking her length with two hundred and eighty two feet so that lengthening was about ten percent of the original ship's length could this have been a contributing factor for the ship splitting in half. I wonder so if you happen to be in the area of cape ban in gloucester massachusetts. You might wanna look up cape and diver to and head out for a double dip on the chester a

The Federal Government Sells Flood-Prone Homes to Often Unsuspecting Buyers, NPR Finds

"Climate. Change is driving more severe flooding across the country. The latest example being from the northeast united states but an npr investigation finds the top. Federal housing agency is selling flood-prone holmes to families without fully disclosing the risk at the same time the federal government is spending millions of dollars to move people out a flood zones rebecca hersher from. Npr's climate team is here rebecca. We're talking about the. Us department of housing and urban development hud. What did your investigation find. Well how'd is mainly known for subsidized rental housing but also sells homes and we found that thousands of those homes around the country are located in flood zones and the people who buy them generally. Don't get any information about flood risk until after they've decided to buy and that raises a lot of questions about how hood is dealing with climate change. Climate change is caused residential flood damage in the. Us to skyrocket. Hud's mission is to provide safe affordable housing so hud says it's important to sell these homes for low prices in make sure they don't sit vacant but many of the housing experts we spoke with said it's very concerning that it'd be selling homes that are prone to flooding and basically allowing families to move into harm's way. Where are these homes located. You said they were all around the us any particular hot spots. Yes so i should say. These are houses that were foreclosed on by banks and then handed over to hud to be sold an. Npr analyzed data from twenty seventeen to twenty twenty. It's nearly one hundred thousand homes that hud sold and in that time. Hud sold flood-prone houses in almost every state but there were hot spots as you said so louisiana florida and new jersey all stuck out a larger proportion of the homes that hud sold in those states. Were in flood zones.

After Afghanistan August, Biden Pivots to Domestic Agenda

"I'm david brancaccio. The biden administration spent august focused on pulling the us military out of afghanistan and attempting to quell the delta variant. Now it's september. The white house is hoping to turn to its economic agenda marketplaces and dealers on the line with more of those priorities. That's right david. The white house is looking to pass more than four trillion dollars in domestic spending. Which includes that bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that biden is arguing is even more pressing after hurricane ida devastated the gulf coast and left some of the northeast flooded and he approved major disaster declarations up north. And he's also touring the damage in new york and new jersey today. And you know that he's going to be pushing that build back better agenda in the process and the bulk of the spending would come as a budget reconciliation package. It's called with the price tag of some three and a half trillion dollars with a t but sounds like summer worried about spending too much. Yeah that's exactly right. That's spending would effectively direct toward different social programs. Things like family services health. lots of environmental programs. Now senator joe manchin of west virginia. He's a pivotal democrat. Whose vote is key to getting anything through the senate. He's already said that. He's worried about the government racking up so much debt but the biden team is confident that he's going to be persuaded now. Biden's also continued to argue for a higher corporate tax rate to help pay for community. College paid family the expansion of child tax credit as well but in terms of capturing the spotlight afghanistan and pandemic. These are not going away. That's exactly right. They're not and it's really biden's hope that he can shift focus to his economic priorities but that could be easier said than done especially after two important pieces of the cove in nineteen relief. Package just ran out. The federal moratorium on evictions is over and just yesterday. Almost nine million people lost their unemployment benefits

You cannot have a national program that spends the vast majority of money in northeastern states. Nyu transit researcher along levy adds that new york should ask why it's transit.

"The Northeast to where New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts just notch numbers not seen since May, the nation past that death toll Sunday, according to Johns Hopkins University. The US leads the world in number of deaths and cases of the virus. More than 8.6 million people in the U. S have been diagnosed with the illness since the band Emmick began. El Paso County in west Texas, has ordered a curfew between 10 P.m. and 5 A.m.. As a number of covert 19 cases skyrocket in all hospitals reach 100% capacity. The county judge there is called the situation at a crisis stage. The fine for breaking the curfew is 500 bucks, and anyone caught not wearing a face mask will face a $250 penalty. El Paso County has also closed all of its parks and recreational facilities for the next two weeks. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows says vice President Mike Pence will continue his duties despite advisers testing positive for covert 19. Well, actually, he's not just campaign he's working on CNN's state of the Union, Meadows insisted. Pence, is wearing a mask and practicing social distancing in lieu of his chief of staff and political advisor testing positive for Cove it. The vice president tested negative Sunday, according to spokespeople, and he is continuing to campaign even though he has been in close contact with those now positive, one White House official said, in consultation with the White House Medical Alienate. The vice president will maintain his schedule in accordance with the CDC guidelines for essential personnel. Despite the CDC guidelines, stating you should stay home if you might have been exposed to covert 19, the vice president will be campaigning in Minnesota today. There's a report the Corona virus vaccine being developed by Oxford University, and AstraZeneca is producing a similar immune response in both older and younger adults. AstraZeneca also told Reuters that adverse side effects among elderly people are lower. The vaccine the British pharmaceutical giant and Oxford are developing is believed to be a front runner for approval from regulators. Today's announcements likely to raise hopes that a Corona virus vaccine will be developed before the end of this year. President Trump and Joe Biden are using very different strategies in the final days of the campaign. The president is doing multiple rallies daily in Manchester, New Hampshire. Sunday, he criticized Biden for at time staying close to home. He never goes anywhere. And when he does, it's Delaware.

"The thing politics and government that bothers me is when these people are making laws and decisions insist that affect so many people. I don't think they they think about the gravity city of how it's GonNa Affect People's lives. I think they make decisions callously and recklessly and and don't think about the effect of this have on the general population. Well it's it's politics. All it takes is all about like they do things to appeal to other people in politics so that they can get things all about waging leverage. It's not really about getting it's not about it's been about. They could care less what happens to the people the people that are affected. We can't unify and get things together. It's everybody's quarreling there in quarreling. Talk all the people are people and end friendship trump frame or you know right. I mean I'm to the point now. Where after like politics just as the hell out of me where I kind of have to detach from it in order to live a normal life because there's so much it's so diluted it's so mast is so ultimately I'm only getting half to store and him yes my one vote counts but it's like how much does it count? What sources do you trust the the most in the media I mean the reason why the news and the media exist is because it was supposed to form a well informed electorate and that was for people to learn about the issues? Learn about the people that you are going to vote in the office of whatever your local your National National Races and make that decision based on the information they provided. I don't believe we are always provided with the best information. I don't believe that we are always provided with nonbiased information the information they want us to handwrite. I and I'm a huge fan of overseas news. I would rather get my news from other countries then about our our politics. And what is going on in the world not just here in the world then then CNN or Fox Fox were MSNBC OR NBC or right. I mean this reliable. I don't we know anymore. What is your opinion of the Democratic Party too? Many yeah can't focus. Yeah there's no focus on that at all because they're just this throwing everybody in the ring well aside from the candidates which we can talk about. What about the party is a whole Democratic Party is a whole just yeah interesting? I think they stand for the important issues. What I consider the important issues is what what issues are the most in line with the Democratic Party healthcare? I I really think. Universal health care is important. I would like to see some form of education reform. I would love to see lobbying lobbying just completely done away with anyone else when you vote for Democrats. What makes you vote for them? I I tend to think did they are more. They're more for the people than the put. The common people. The people vet are working people. That aren't rich. The people who don't own businesses whereas the Republican Party just seems to it always be concerned about the wealthy. You know that so is it and then who here is definitely gonNA vote for the Democratic candidate. Whoever the Democratic candidates in my research I I even though only one person said she was considering voting for trump no one would commit to voting for the Democratic candidate? No matter who wins the nomination who here would vote for Braga Obama again. If he was running again I probably would. So that's That's almost everyone except okay. That's good just trying to get all these down. Is there a chance of that. What's it's most important to you like if you could build a dream Democratic candidate what kind of qualities would you be looking at question them being racist or not integrity? Yeah I was just GonNa say that. Yeah this is important. I would like a focus campaign not a pro empty promise campaign not a I have one hundred fifty things on my listen I wanNA do for you. How do you focus on five important issues? A Tommy how you're going to achieve them because to me. That's I think something that. Every single one of our presidential candidates candidate has done wrong. In the past I would vote for who ever ran a decent campaign. I am so tired of listening to people bad mouth each other and it just really seems like that's all they do and I'm not just talking about Democrats. I'm talking about politicians across the board. I don't understand politics as a whole for my thirty years of being out of high school by Focus was on was raising. My son is autistic. So but I know I have no understanding what they need to. We do have an understanding class with those who don't understand. They can get better election going on because I would love to be in. Politics is to see was not the see the now I wouldn't know w parts of it I don't understand it I just turn it off someone else. That last comment stayed with me after the conversation was over. It's not that she doesn't care about politics or government she just doesn't understand the issues or the debate around the issues and that's pretty common with a a lot of voters who were too busy working and raising kids to follow politics or figure out what new source they can trust. There was plenty of frustration and disappointment with trump in that Pennsylvania. Menu Focus Group but in order to win their support. Democrats need to somehow breakthrough all the noise and nastiness corruption that these voters see coming out of Washington. It's also true that the more Democrats can tie trump and Republican politicians to the mess in DC. The better chance they'll have to present an alternative vision of politics according to David Puff Barack Obama's campaign manager Democrats have such an opportunity in the Maine Senate race or longtime Republican incumbent. Susan in Collins is up in two thousand twenty you know I think Collins obviously someone who's been immensely popular people didn't see her as a politician. She's lost all that and and so I think there's a decent chance to beat her. I think it will require you. Know the Democratic candidate for Senate holding on to basically all the vote are Democratic presidential candidate it gets in Portland and the suburbs in the southern part of the state you know I think. She's a super tempting target. There is no path to a democratic majority in the Senate meant. That doesn't run through main full stop. That's Lisa Roberts. The chair of the main Democratic Party and she's got a lot to say about this. Susan Collins was first first elected in one thousand nine hundred ninety six twenty fourteen. She won with nearly seventy percent of the statewide vote. And that means that a large number of Democrats voted wooded for her in fact. If you went out and pull Democrats you'd probably find a large number of them who voted for her. Not just once but twice or multiple times but who she was then is not who she is now and that is why it matters so much. She has a track record especially since two thousand sixteen of saying one thing and doing another. She has told us for decades that she is pro choice yet. She voted for Brett Cavanaugh. And she's she's helped. Donald Trump appoint thirty two antiabortion judges. Roughly half of miners have a pre existing condition and that means that she would have left all of us out on the street wind. She voted to Gut the ACS voted to do almost a dozen times. Mainers won't select the Democratic candidate to face collins until their primary in June but Lisa in the main Democrats are already building off their two thousand eighteen successes. Like electing Maine's first woman governor owner Janet Mills Electing Jared Golden in Mainz historically read second congressional district and taking control of the state legislature. We not only need to replicate what we did well in two thousand eighteen but we have to do it on steroids in twenty twenty. And so what we've done coming out at two thousand eighteen is. We've recognized that we need to like. I said earlier her meet people where they're at not only with the issues that we care about what but with our actual organizing program and so we've actually invested quite heavily in our digital infrastructure sure and developing a a distributed organizing model.

We can't realistically planned to put organizers on the ground and this is going to allow wow us to prepare people to go neighbor to neighbor block by block throughout their community and talk to the people that they already know and have existing relationships with about these issues and so we are not only deploying traditional field strategy. We're using new. Tactics and new tools and worked to bridge is the geographic divide. Because it's so important that we be on the ground early and we are talking to voters to determine what's going to be the most effective Messaging Strategy Organiz early Organiz everywhere and talk to everyone. Not just a few weeks before an election about a specific candidate but all year round about the issues issues people care about. That's the way to break.

"The thing politics and government that bothers me is when these people are making laws and decisions insist that affect so many people. I don't think they they think about the gravity city of how it's GonNa Affect People's lives. I think they make decisions callously and recklessly and and don't think about the effect of this have on the general population. Well it's it's politics. All it takes is all about like they do things to appeal to other people in politics so that they can get things all about waging leverage. It's not really about getting it's not about it's been about. They could care less what happens to the people the people that are affected. We can't unify and get things together. It's everybody's quarreling there in quarreling. Talk all the people are people and end friendship trump frame or you know right. I mean I'm to the point now. Where after like politics just as the hell out of me where I kind of have to detach from it in order to live a normal life because there's so much it's so diluted it's so mast is so ultimately I'm only getting half to store and him yes my one vote counts but it's like how much does it count? What sources do you trust the the most in the media I mean the reason why the news and the media exist is because it was supposed to form a well informed electorate and that was for people to learn about the issues? Learn about the people that you are going to vote in the office of whatever your local your National National Races and make that decision based on the information they provided. I don't believe we are always provided with the best information. I don't believe that we are always provided with nonbiased information the information they want us to handwrite. I and I'm a huge fan of overseas news. I would rather get my news from other countries then about our our politics. And what is going on in the world not just here in the world then then CNN or Fox Fox were MSNBC OR NBC or right. I mean this reliable. I don't we know anymore. What is your opinion of the Democratic Party too? Many yeah can't focus. Yeah there's no focus on that at all because they're just this throwing everybody in the ring well aside from the candidates which we can talk about. What about the party is a whole Democratic Party is a whole just yeah interesting? I think they stand for the important issues. What I consider the important issues is what what issues are the most in line with the Democratic Party healthcare? I I really think. Universal health care is important. I would like to see some form of education reform. I would love to see lobbying lobbying just completely done away with anyone else when you vote for Democrats. What makes you vote for them? I I tend to think did they are more. They're more for the people than the put. The common people. The people vet are working people. That aren't rich. The people who don't own businesses whereas the Republican Party just seems to it always be concerned about the wealthy. You know that so is it and then who here is definitely gonNA vote for the Democratic candidate. Whoever the Democratic candidates in my research I I even though only one person said she was considering voting for trump no one would commit to voting for the Democratic candidate? No matter who wins the nomination who here would vote for Braga Obama again. If he was running again I probably would. So that's That's almost everyone except okay. That's good just trying to get all these down. Is there a chance of that. What's it's most important to you like if you could build a dream Democratic candidate what kind of qualities would you be looking at question them being racist or not integrity? Yeah I was just GonNa say that. Yeah this is important. I would like a focus campaign not a pro empty promise campaign not a I have one hundred fifty things on my listen I wanNA do for you. How do you focus on five important issues? A Tommy how you're going to achieve them because to me. That's I think something that. Every single one of our presidential candidates candidate has done wrong. In the past I would vote for who ever ran a decent campaign. I am so tired of listening to people bad mouth each other and it just really seems like that's all they do and I'm not just talking about Democrats. I'm talking about politicians across the board. I don't understand politics as a whole for my thirty years of being out of high school by Focus was on was raising. My son is autistic. So but I know I have no understanding what they need to. We do have an understanding class with those who don't understand. They can get better election going on because I would love to be in. Politics is to see was not the see the now I wouldn't know w parts of it I don't understand it I just turn it off someone else. That last comment stayed with me after the conversation was over. It's not that she doesn't care about politics or government she just doesn't understand the issues or the debate around the issues and that's pretty common with a a lot of voters who were too busy working and raising kids to follow politics or figure out what new source they can trust. There was plenty of frustration and disappointment with trump in that Pennsylvania. Menu Focus Group but in order to win their support. Democrats need to somehow breakthrough all the noise and nastiness corruption that these voters see coming out of Washington. It's also true that the more Democrats can tie trump and Republican politicians to the mess in DC. The better chance they'll have to present an alternative vision of politics according to David Puff Barack Obama's campaign manager Democrats have such an opportunity in the Maine Senate race or longtime Republican incumbent. Susan in Collins is up in two thousand twenty you know I think Collins obviously someone who's been immensely popular people didn't see her as a politician. She's lost all that and and so I think there's a decent chance to beat her. I think it will require you. Know the Democratic candidate for Senate holding on to basically all the vote are Democratic presidential candidate it gets in Portland and the suburbs in the southern part of the state you know I think. She's a super tempting target. There is no path to a democratic majority in the Senate meant. That doesn't run through main full stop. That's Lisa Roberts. The chair of the main Democratic Party and she's got a lot to say about this. Susan Collins was first first elected in one thousand nine hundred ninety six twenty fourteen. She won with nearly seventy percent of the statewide vote. And that means that a large number of Democrats voted wooded for her in fact. If you went out and pull Democrats you'd probably find a large number of them who voted for her. Not just once but twice or multiple times but who she was then is not who she is now and that is why it matters so much. She has a track record especially since two thousand sixteen of saying one thing and doing another. She has told us for decades that she is pro choice yet. She voted for Brett Cavanaugh. And she's she's helped. Donald Trump appoint thirty two antiabortion judges. Roughly half of miners have a pre existing condition and that means that she would have left all of us out on the street wind. She voted to Gut the ACS voted to do almost a dozen times. Mainers won't select the Democratic candidate to face collins until their primary in June but Lisa in the main Democrats are already building off their two thousand eighteen successes. Like electing Maine's first woman governor owner Janet Mills Electing Jared Golden in Mainz historically read second congressional district and taking control of the state legislature. We not only need to replicate what we did well in two thousand eighteen but we have to do it on steroids in twenty twenty. And so what we've done coming out at two thousand eighteen is. We've recognized that we need to like. I said earlier her meet people where they're at not only with the issues that we care about what but with our actual organizing program and so we've actually invested quite heavily in our digital infrastructure sure and developing a a distributed organizing model. And so what this really does is. It allows us to bring our trainings Directly into the living rooms in the homes of Democrats across the state especially in rural areas where.

Whatever like that immediately SHEFA conversation? What if they voted for it also just seemed like what are you for and so we very purposely? Yeah let's do voice for people who are tired of the voice not making a difference of their voice not being heard most of our actions at the beginning were centered around healthcare care. I mean it was an issue that you could talk about with anybody and almost everybody was upset. You're told that there's this political divide and there's red and there's blue and nobody can ever agree but when you were able to talk about something like health care you can have a real conversation talk about that. Never forget one. The first canvas be dead the secondary knocked. It was just a it was like listening canvas to talk to people about healthcare. The woman mmediately mmediately said like. I don't WanNa talk to you. I voted for trump. And I don't WanNa be talked out of it and instead of just walking away we started talking. I said well I'm just out here today because the scared I have mass. My medicine costs eight thousand dollars a month. And I don't know what I'd do without insurance and so we slowly started talking. We ended talking for fifteen minutes and turns out.

The Republican congressman who had represented ended their district for more than a decade resigned in scandal and a young green and former prosecutor named conner lamb stepped up to run. It's a district that trump won by twenty points. But the kind the Democrats needed to flip in order to win back a state like Pennsylvania. Needless to say we all had a lot of hope riding on this congressional national race. That could be a harbinger of elections to calm this the race between Democrat Connor Lamb and Republican Rix Cohn has been neck and looks like he has an actual chance.

Hope A win will put Washington on notes and they said you know that if you can flip flip this district. This could be the beginning of the blue wave like doll this anger and this you know people being upset about trump is what does it actually mean what happens if we really channel. I'm just how angry we are at the Republican control and the way that the country is going what happens if we do real work and flip this and that was amazing to to me. It was so cool to see how people were willing to to do the scary thing and then we did a lot of work. We'd knocked a lot of doors. We had campuses every weekend and and And phone banks.

I didn't go. I had a newborn was inspiring inspiring to see that but the also immediately I just had this cynicism off like what if none of that matters. What if these people aren't going to do any work afterwards is to actually make a difference to get him out of office lucky for us? Angela didn't give into that. Cynicism a few months slater she and some other women in her community started. A group called Voice of Westmoreland. We'll hear more about their organizing and activism in a bit. What's important to offer now? Is that our journey out of the Wilderness begins in places like Westmoreland county with people like Angela Aldus over the next few episodes. We'll spend time all over the country with swing voters and occasional voters. First Time voters all of whom could get Democrats over the finish line in November. But I wanted to start here with the organizers and volunteers whose energy enthusiasm will put that victory within reach. The people who've responded to two thousand sixteen by throwing themselves into the hard work of citizenship and most of them are women the year of the woman women across this nation smashed barriers in this year's historic midterm election the crucial Philly suburbs female voters. Driving the agenda heading into twenty twenty. Lots and lots of women are acting one step further. What they did before here in the northeast like other midterm battlegrounds women organizers activists and voters swept women candidates into power up and down the ticket? None of us ran to make history. We ran to make change however the historical significance of this evening is not lost on me in Pennsylvania alone a state that had an all. Male congressional delegations twenty fourteen. A record eight women ran for the House and half of them one for the first time ever not one but four women were elected to Congress from Pennsylvania today the road to two hundred seventy electoral votes and fifty one senate seats. It's starts in this. Traditionally Democratic region of the United States Pennsylvania is the most likely trump state to turn blue. Main is where a number of democratic women are running owning to defeat Susan Collins who seat we need to flip the Senate and in New Hampshire Democrats will have to defend the state's four electoral votes and Jeanne Shaheen Senate seat from an onslaught of Republican. Spending women are on the frontlines of all these fights and in this episode. We'll find out why in learn more about their battle plan plan for twenty twenty then to get a better sense of. What these organizers are hearing when they talk to potential Democratic voters I sat down with some myself what issues voters care about what pisses them off about politics? In what will motivate them to cast their ballot for Democrat in twenty twenty. I'm John Favalora. Welcome to the Wilderness. The interval between twenty sixteen in two thousand eighteen created what we political scientists call a political opportunity structure that sort of hit the Democrats over the head like a two by four. That's Feta Scotch Rajpal a familiar voice from last season and a professor of government and sociology at Harvard University. It told them that instead of contacting Washington or worrying about national politics they had to organize in districts and in states and for Congressional elections after the November twenty. Sixteen out. Calm Tom. It was a matter of less than a week. Citizen started organizing all over the United States. Feeds research found similarities between this organizing. And the kind find it happened after the two thousand eight election ultimately our research shows that voluntary groups of citizens determined to fight back against the trump presidency on the republican agenda that it was going further formed in just as many places across the United States is tea. Parties formed eight years earlier to oppose Barack Barack Obama's presidency and the Democrats today in Pennsylvania. Resistance groups can be found in fifty two of the states sixty seven counties. They activated citizens in many districts and states where Democrats had not really been very energetic in two thousand sixteen by I twenty eighteen they were generating unprecedented number of people willing to run for office at the state and local as well as national level for Congress and they helped to fuel fuel a huge turnout in two thousand eighteen that I think was responsible for the blue wave we saw and those groups were mostly led by older white women woman. This isn't the first time that women have led a progressive movement is where reminded by another familiar voice. I'm Rebecca trickster. I am a writer at large at New York magazine. Gene and I'm the author of good and bad which is a book about the political potency of women's anger in the contemporary democratic parties. Since the mid sixties ace that parties footsoldiers the people who've always done the work of voter registration and turnout get out the vote who've done that organizing the volunteering have always been women. It's been women of color. White women have been split as demographic a majority of white women have voted for Conservative politicians letitia for Republican candidates. Going back as long as they've been keeping track but after Donald Trump is elected over Hillary Clinton something sort of breaks and a lot of you. Rebecca explains how a lot of white women experienced a kind of political awakening and transformation because of two thousand sixteen the stories. We like to tell ourselves in this country about an equity inequities in our past right. Yes the country's systems were built around slavery but slavery was abolished and yes there was segregation but that was fixed during the civil rights movement. And yes it's true that women were not allowed to vote and denied civic and sexual rights and opportunities but you know that was fixed of the women's movement and so if you are comfortable enough to believe the flattering version of the story of America. Then there's not a sense of like urgency and emergency to your involvement. It's exactly those attitudes that permitted so many people to Donald trump would never be elected. This couldn't happen in the United States dates and then it happened and what what it did was shock. A population awake and part of that population is the white suburban middle class women mm-hmm and a lot of what I have seen over the past couple of years has been this transformation in so many of these women lots of them use language like I came out of the closet as a Democrat there suddenly finding their real identity finding real friends because they got to weaken and engaged in political activism and that organizing stems from Dissatisfaction fury a desire to change the way our political system works. What we've seen is the sleeping giant and women's electoral power simply come to life and come roaring for Republican Party? That has had a war on women for apparently just exactly two long Heather Maggie past president and distinguished senior fellow at the liberal think tank demos and demos action eighty one percent of women who voted in the two thousand eighteen. Eighteen midterms said that it was important to elect more women to public office. There is a vision thwarted vision of women's leadership and sort of gross display of what toxic masculinity in the halls of power can do right. We have a serial sexual assaulter in the White.

Main is where a number of democratic women are running owning to defeat Susan Collins who seat we need to flip the Senate and in New Hampshire Democrats will have to defend the state's four electoral votes and Jeanne Shaheen Senate seat from an onslaught of Republican. Spending women are on the frontlines of all these fights and in this episode. We'll find out why in learn more about their battle plan plan for twenty twenty then to get a better sense of. What these organizers are hearing when they talk to potential Democratic voters I sat down with some myself what issues voters care about what pisses them off about politics? In what will motivate them to cast their ballot for Democrat in twenty twenty. I'm John Favalora. Welcome to the Wilderness. The interval between twenty sixteen in two thousand eighteen created what we political scientists call a political opportunity structure that sort of hit the Democrats over the head like a two by four. That's Feta Scotch Rajpal a familiar voice from last season and a professor of government and sociology at Harvard University. It told them that instead of contacting Washington or worrying about national politics they had to organize in districts and in states and for Congressional elections after the November twenty. Sixteen out. Calm Tom. It was a matter of less than a week. Citizen started organizing all over the United States. Feeds research found similarities between this organizing. And the kind find it happened after the two thousand eight election ultimately our research shows that voluntary groups of citizens determined to fight back against the trump presidency on the republican agenda that it was going further formed in just as many places across the United States is tea. Parties formed eight years earlier to oppose Barack Barack Obama's presidency and the Democrats today in Pennsylvania. Resistance groups can be found in fifty two of the states sixty seven counties. They activated citizens in many districts and states where Democrats had not really been very energetic in two thousand sixteen by I twenty eighteen they were generating unprecedented number of people willing to run for office at the state and local as well as national level for Congress and they helped to fuel fuel a huge turnout in two thousand eighteen that I think was responsible for the blue wave we saw and those groups were mostly led by older white women woman. This isn't the first time that women have led a progressive movement is where reminded by another familiar voice. I'm Rebecca trickster. I am a writer at large at New York magazine. Gene and I'm the author of good and bad which is a book about the political potency of women's anger in the contemporary democratic parties. Since the mid sixties ace that parties footsoldiers the people who've always done the work of voter registration and turnout get out the vote who've done that organizing the volunteering have always been women. It's been women of color. White women have been split as demographic a majority of white women have voted for Conservative politicians letitia for Republican candidates. Going back as long as they've been keeping track but after Donald Trump is elected over Hillary Clinton something sort of breaks and a lot of you. Rebecca explains how a lot of white women experienced a kind of political awakening and transformation because of two thousand sixteen the stories. We like to tell ourselves in this country about an equity inequities in our past right. Yes the country's systems were built around slavery but slavery was abolished and yes there was segregation but that was fixed during the civil rights movement. And yes it's true that women were not allowed to vote and denied civic and sexual rights and opportunities but you know that was fixed of the women's movement and so if you are comfortable enough to believe the flattering version of the story of America. Then there's not a sense of like urgency and emergency to your involvement. It's exactly those attitudes that permitted so many people to Donald trump would never be elected. This couldn't happen in the United States dates and then it happened and what what it did was shock. A population awake and part of that population is the white suburban middle class women mm-hmm and a lot of what I have seen over the past couple of years has been this transformation in so many of these women lots of them use language like I came out of the closet as a Democrat there suddenly finding their real identity finding real friends because they got to weaken and engaged in political activism and that organizing stems from Dissatisfaction fury a desire to change the way our political system works. What we've seen is the sleeping giant and women's electoral power simply come to life and come roaring for Republican Party? That has had a war on women for apparently just exactly two long Heather Maggie past president and distinguished senior fellow at the liberal think tank demos and demos action eighty one percent of women who voted in the two thousand eighteen. Eighteen midterms said that it was important to elect more women to public office. There is a vision thwarted vision of women's leadership and sort of gross display of what toxic masculinity in the halls of power can do right. We have a serial sexual assaulter in the White.
