NASA Technology Designed to Turn Space Trash into Treasure
"Orbital sin gas commodity augmentation reactor is an early career initiative that studies technology to convert trash and human waste into useful gases such as methane hydrogen and carbon dioxide by processing small pieces of trash in a high temperature. Reactor oscar is advancing innovative technology for managing waste in space. Here's anne meyer a chemical engineer at nasa's kennedy space center so on a one year mission crew four would produce around twenty five hundred kilograms of trash. We can convert over ninety five percent of that solid trash into gas. It's enough gas that you can convert into a fuel that could do things like course correct spacecraft or used to send a small payload from the surface of the moon or mars.

2021 Golden Crappies
"Birdie a welcome to the crappy awards twenty twenty one inc warranty Virtual crappy this is where the crappies began. Wow y- tonight just like the old days you guys. Twenty twenty one has been quite a year. I'd like to congratulate everybody. I mean twenty twenty with quite a year. Twenty twenty one. You know. it's had some shit to already. Twenty twenty was quite a year. So congratulations to everybody for making it through so much has happened in one year. I just think to what it was like before. The whole corona virus thing. I mean things were so great. I was just like sitting alone in my house eating too much. Playing mario talking to no one watching housewives way. Yeah still pretty much. Do that but seriously This year a virus spread across america causing illness. Sadness and loss but enough about kim zolciak. Okay i know. Just think the biggest plague facing this country before this. Jack's taylor guys you know. I spent a good amount of twenty twenty just playing animal crossing. Which as you it's a game about a bunch of animals stuck on an island up. Some of you may not original named the real house. Believe sorry they laugh to sued new york city already. The punchline about to land and the country has gone through a lot you know. I mean besides the corona virus. We've had political upheaval. I mean america's now even more trillions of dollars in debt. I mean no one in government watches housewives. And if they did they'd get fifty girlfriends and force them all to give america hundred bucks on your birthday. I mean we'd still be in debt but lady liberty would have a gucci bag to show for it. You know the on a serious note. The nation was very shocked a few weeks ago when an angry mob raided the capital. And all you gave them was a pizza. Jennifer eight in and we finally got a new president this week and the nation breathes a sigh of relief. Now look i know all of you have different political opinions and that's fine. My personal opinion is thank god that the orange thing left on my. Tv's ram be read mid no but you know the thing is i mean current events were one thing but so much actually happened in the world but it seemed like so much more happened on bravo. Yeah i mean house was getting fired. So many housewives got fired a record amount. I mean it was a slaughterhouse and it was not the organic kind either. there was a lot of botulism in that meet. Okay housewives caster transforming faster than derek kinsley space. Have you seen that thing. It looks like an elbow anyo on below deck mid hannah. Ferrier was fired for smuggling valium onto the boat and then on vanderpump rules jackson brittany were fired for smuggling food via onto bravo and then we have of course. Our trustee good old friend alcoholism. Okay got real outside of new york trying to convince that she's alcoholic then you've got the real housewives of orange county trying to convince bronwyn that she's not an alcoholic and you got the rest of us sitting over here like what. What are you idiots fighting over k. Do you try and tell the mailman. He's a mailman. You're alcoholics okay. Do your jobs less talking more. Drank he here here here here if we had if we had like a good old fashioned like golden girls mom's earthy monologue clap would be right there and when i can figure this thing out i will move to that button so another thing that happened. So the massive fight between candice amani that sent to'mix ratings through the roof which just goes to show that audiences crave conflict so as a result bravo will now be rebranding top chef as the gail simmons thunderdome of ham my head teddy mellon campus fired in public. Outrage breakout over her diet. I mean people were really furious when they found out that customers were getting thin with starvation. Lots of exercise in a crazy woman bullying them day and night. Berating them for their food choices. They called it all in with teddy. I called it my child head
The 2020 wrap up
"Black lives matter what has changed in two thousand twenty cents. Black lives matter. The shooting slow. Go down the random accident and go down to the political. Care go down. Of course we're the or the people who wanted to use this platform use this slogan for something. Good for change. Did that go down. The maybe the hype of data. Because me because it's called me because covert increased. Why did smoke. it's once again. It's a topic that's just stuck. It's always gonna be touchy. I will say one thing that changed. There was a lot of police reform that did happen. I know i will say the state by state. There was a lot of change that did happen So i'm not gonna say that nothing changed. You know. there was a lot of good that came of these movements I will say one other thing. That hasn't changed my overall stance on on the organization not the movement of the organization the organization still very much disagree with i thank you know the marxist roots of it and the overall attitudes and desires and policy prescriptions of them. I very strongly disagree with. And for that reason i hate the term black lives matter had been co-opted and also used for this movement. 'cause you know hey everyone who's out there with the black lives matter sign. That's one more person that's going to see it. And then maybe donate to the marxist organization but you know the movement did lead to some good for sure right. I mean and i completely agree and this even to the point where the words are more to a lifestyle that i literally have to live. You know without any choice. I'm about black life. And i think i matter across the board no matter what slogan over that will matter what corporation organizations associated with however. I want everyone to be aware of how much how many billions with an s of dollars were going to go to black communities because of this movement and i want you to be aware one year five years ten years twenty years. Have none of that. Money will come to those communities desperately in need. Yup and i would be remiss to bring up semantic overload because that was something we talked about in numerous episodes where word or phrase has numerous meanings. I hate it. it's come up with defunding. Police black lives matter. And all this stuff and we will get into it more. I'm sure with some of our other snippets talking about some of the other episodes as well of course freedom of religion and the supreme court. We talked about a couple specific cases in our episode. But you know just kind of thoughts on freedom of religion in general and court cases since then. A lot of different cases have been heard Some going in the quote unquote pro religion direction and some going in the quote unquote. I don't wanna say anti religion. What right but the religious group Opposite their position we've seen that state and church and state. Yeah that that they really aren't entirely separate right of whether that's a good thing a bad thing depends on who you ask but clearly. There's an intersection there. And i think that it deserves a little more hashing out you know. I think that these are issues that are going to keep coming up. You know we saw a lot of cases where churches were closed or forced to impose different different restrictions. Or things around cova. And i think we're going to continue seeing these things as we as we move forward and so it's important to see you know what what we think about now about that freedom and how far it can go new on exactly what i was gonna talk talk about like even with kovin other people other religious groups have like how are you able to shutdown churches versus casinos and then that's literally a conversation church state and then gambling which i'm sure every religion denounces so i mean i think president trump pass something where there's there's a there are allowed to have the integration of religion and politics. I think just like the money or in god. We trust on the money within the united states. it's all a facade. There's definitely an impact when when politicians go to churches or stand there and speak like we don't want that we want that separation but clearly the level of influence there's churches who confidently jolo sea. Search constantly says trump is our guy or one of the televangelists. Trump is our dude or on each be rocket obama. So yeah it's across the board to say that it's not a part of american culture has to say that american pies and fattening and i think you know it's kind of inevitabilities as much as we can push to limit the intersection between church and state. It's going to be inevitable. People bring their values in their religion into things as long as it doesn't become quote unquote excessive which obviously is subjective. But you know. I think that it's also important. That state stays out of church. Which is what we're seeing with some of these restrictions and stuff like that but we'll definitely have to do another episode like we did with freedom of speech diving into the freedom of religion.

The Story of How TSMC Came To Dominate the World
"So obviously tracy. We've been talking a lot about chips lately. But for all the episodes we've done we haven't hit like what is sort of a. I guess i would say the elephant in the room or the gorilla in the room that keeps coming up over and over again. We've been going at a. I would say from a us perspective. Very focused on the trouble at intel. But we haven't really talked about the success story. That is taiwan. Semiconductor manufacturing company better known as t s emcee. Yeah exactly right so every episode that we do it sort of comes back to them. What a juggernaut. They've become and of course you know. The sort of basic story is that manufacturing chips is extremely hard It's extremely expensive. And it's very difficult to scale until Is one of the rare companies that designs and manufactures. Its own chips. But that for a lot of these companies that are sort of exploding ri- gaining market share there Having taiwan semi manufacture them and taiwan semi is getting extremely good or is extremely good at a manufacturing and maybe Pulling away from intel some extent in terms of its manufacturing capabilities. Right and i think they actually invented the foundry model which you know this idea of just manufacturing chips which keeps coming up over and over and over again in all of our conversations as one reason the entire semiconductor industry has changed and one reason why intel is struggling but the thing i find kind of amazing like in twenty twenty one. We all take it for granted. That tsmc is this massive player in the semiconductor industry in the world. Really but i find it really really noteworthy and you know somewhat surprising. In retrospect that what is a single company on an island has emerged to really dominate chips. That are now vital to all sorts of things so computers smartphones cars. Everything i think. Tsmc manufacturers little over half of the world's chips so it's not quite a monopoly but again like they are the juggernaut in the room as he put it absolutely. And it's such a. I mean it's such a pivotal company for a lot of reasons. I mean you mentioned cars. It was just a story this week recording this january twelfth by the way there was just a story this week about how car manufacturers around the world are actually running into supply constraints because they can't get chips because of the chip manufacturers decided to reduce their production of automotive chips during the crisis in the spring on the expectation that demand wasn't going to be there and now they haven't ramped up taiwan semi They're to actually reporting earnings. This week expected to be very strong. Earnings are soaring. stock is soaring. And then of course. Because it's in the strategic position end because taiwan itself is in this Uh strategic position obviously between the us and china and the roll over its status. It's just an incredibly central player and sort of necessary to understand the story right a big player in tech big player across multiple supply chains in a bunch of different industries. Uncertainly player geopolitics as well. So we really talk more time on semi and we have the perfect guest to do that. Someone who knows all about the company who's been covering them for a long time since long before they were the dominant player They are today. We're going to be speaking to copen. He is a tech columnist at bloomberg. Opinion has been with us a bloomberg for fifteen years and he's actually been covering The tech industry from taipei specifically for the last twenty one years Everything about Taiwan semiconductor where it came from this important player so tim thank you very much for joining us. Hey thanks time guys to talk to you tim. How would you describe the importance of taiwan semiconductor in the world right now well as you assess just saying they are so huge. Tracy pointed out the creates. Such a large share of the world saw chips. There's probably not a single device in the world that doesn't have. Tsmc somewhere but whether it's a car die. Fine of course famously. But even some really unimportant boring things like temperature sense. A hiya or some led lights array there. They do serve much of the waltz products. They're they're basically everywhere and so if that would've stopped production. Tomorrow i think the global technology industry would grind to a halt very very

America's messy Covid-19 vaccine rollout
"Americans have died of covert 19 and one year that's 100,000 more than the number that died in combat in World War two and double that of both sides in combat in the Civil War. But even though the death toll rises daily, there is now hope with a couple of vaccines approved in more of the way and that hope there is also despair. Many Americans haven't been able to get vaccines information about where and when to get them has been haphazard and confusing. Many hearing about reactions that summer getting to a second shot or not showing up for it. And the total number of Americans planning according to polls and getting vaccinated seems to be way below the numbers needed for anything we can call herd immunity. So where are we? Joining us this vaccine researcher Dr Peter Hotez, founding dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine, professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, where he's also director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, and also the author of Preventing the Next Pandemic. Vaccine diplomacy and a time of anti science. It's good to talk to you again. You know. Last week we talked to a doctor who said we had a vaccine plan, But we did not have a vaccination plan is that the way it's playing out? Well, yeah, I mean, I think it's we're not realizing operation Warp speed is was first and foremost the development program and to take the decade or so of covert 19 research, coronaviruses research and Unidentified. The spike Protein is the soft target of the virus and come up with ways to deliver the spike protein by working with the pharma companies, and that's nest standpoint, I think it was very successful. The problem was, I think, you know when you heard about the four star military general, on top of that there was this. A lot of the American people thought that that meant bringing in the military and the National Guard and there was a plant also deliver the vaccinations, and it turns out that was never the case by logistics of men. Putting the boxes in the back of the FedEx trucks and the U. P s trucks making certainly kept cold and there was no temperature incursions, and it was off to the states and then was adios. And and so once again, it was this policy of the Trump Administration. That the states had to be in the lead for everything. And this is why we failed so catastrophically in 2020, and now we're 400,000 Americans have lost their lives because the states never had the capacity to Monaco. Vin 19 response. It's why we missed The entry of the virus coming in from Southern Europe into New York. It's why we never really got diagnostic testing, widely disseminated and use its why we missed the entry of the Vira of the virus into the southern states in the summer, and the Midwestern states in the fall and Why we never got genomic sequencing underway is just failure after failure, and now this under the current. If we kept on with the Trump administration, it would have been along the same lines. We would have puttered along slowly. Getting vaccinations into people's arms. Um as this virus continues to mutate and become more transmissible, so by at least now the plan is to have some kind of national vaccination strategy in place. Through a partnership between the federal government and the states. And this has to be the top priority because we're in a race now with daily deaths. Well, let's talk about that. President Biden wants to achieve 100 million vaccinations in 100 days That would be about triple the rate of where we are now. We do that? Well, I look at it a little different way. I mean, seem probably the same result, but a little bit different way of thinking about the numbers. We have to vaccinate 240 million people. Americans by By the end of the summer in order to halt virus transmission, according to our estimates that we did with a group of City University of New York and if most of the vaccines or two doses two times, you know 240 million people are looking at half a billion immunizations. We have to do half a billion immunizations between now and the end of the summer and S so far we've vaccinated by 10 to 15 million people, which, when you divide by half a billion, you realize is rounding error. So for all practical purposes, we've not even started yet. We have not even begun our national vaccination program so The challenge is how do you get from zero to half a billion in our 00.1 toe half a billion in a very small period of time. And that is that is the challenge and wrote a piece in the Washington Post last week, which kind of outline the 45 things that I think has to happen. And in order to make that a reality. Yeah, but

The first we're told the state back film praising Wuhan sacrifices being screened throughout China, targeting audiences that firmly back to ruling Communist Party's response to the outbreak. It's called days and nights in Wuhan, featuring contributions from 30 filmmakers. Train to suffering of the city's 11 million residents. Now the second film we found it's a somber documentary about it's him pandemic from artists and political activists. Ah, oui, oui. Now he's having a little bit more of a challenge. His film called Crow Nation, has been rejected by festivals, theaters and streaming services. Even Amazon and Netflix said no way he attributes the censorship to fears over offending the ruling party, which controls what movies can be shown in China. It's not clear if there are plans.

Wuhan marks its one year anniversary since the outbreak
"A year since the Chinese city off Wuhan first went into lockdown as a result off the coronavirus, marking a trend which would spread to many countries around the world. At the time, the respiratory disease now known as covert 19, had killed only 17 people. According to official Chinese statistics, there were more than 500 confirmed cases of that point. Wu Han's mayor, Eugene Wang told state controlled television that officials may have acted too slowly. The church in pushing. This is a profound lesson at the focus of the epidemic will hand should carry out a strict measures to prevent and control it without missing any detail or link. This shows that we didn't get to know enough about the virus at the beginning. About his heart, and it's spreading some 11. Million people were put under tight quarantine and face masks and social distancing became mandatory at the time. The wider world was shocked by the harsh restrictions and rigid enforcement. Among locals, there was a sense of panic. Since the shutdown happened this morning. I think this has been a bit more panic, you know, especially when you think about food and the tractor. These Chinese New year people are now going to be able to go see family, etcetera, and that you know, in Chinese culture. That's a massive thing. You know, seeing their family at this time of year. So today when the shutdown happened on its side at 10 o'clock this morning, a bit more panicked, kicked him. But at that stage, the World Health Organization hadn't decided yet whether to declare a global emergency because they didn't have enough information about the virus as Dr Ted Ross Adhanom, Gabrielle source, the W. H O director explained. The decision about whether or not to declare a public health emergency of international concern. Is one I take extremely seriously. And one time only prepared to make with appropriate consideration off all the evidence when it was only on the 12th of March After 1000 deaths and 20,000 cases off the disease were registered in Italy, that the W H O did then declare it Pandemic.

"This time last summer, Canada was consumed with story to teens on the Lam wanted for murder, lease and military had launched a nationwide manhunt. Try to find McLeod Brirish Miguel Ski. Rugged terrain and somewhere in the vast northern landscape rcmp believed McLeod and Briar. Goski are on the run. Two of the most wanted men in the country all these teams have been traveling be Berta, Scotch and a now Manitoba, but now they're also concerns in Ontario comparatively friends and family in their small coastal British Columbia town that they relieving find work. Instead they found and murdered Lucas. Fowler, China, these and Leonard Dick. The killers bodies were eventually discovered in early August in the deep Bush northern Manitoba End of across Canada manhunt that left the country on edge, said the bodies RCMP found video footage of the pair, confessing to the killings, and then pledging to end their own lives in a murder suicide. Now you're later. You're seeing peer just finishing up some administrative tasks before they consider it. Case closed, but a huge haunting questions still hangs over the case. Why did they do it? I'm. Sitting in for Jordan Heath Rawlings, and this is the big story. Alex mckean is a reporter for the Toronto Star in their Vancouver Bureau. She reported on the teen manhunt as it unfolded last summer, and wrote about the one year anniversary with her star colleague Kwan Alex. thanks for being with us today. Thanks for having me this case. Consumed the country in the early part of last summer. Why. Do you think that is like? What was the really compelling piece about this whole narrative? I think there were a few things that that relief stole people's attention about this story in particular one of course being the news about these victims who were found dead on the side of the highway, all three of them, I think they they were really shocking. These were people who seem to be living good lives. They were all on vacation and they seem to have just run into some awful situation on the side of the highway. At first there were there were very. LITTLE EXPLANATIONS FOR WHY They died the way they did. Of course, Lucas, Fowler and China DC. They were on this road trip, going up to a hot springs together this relief, happy young couple who were celebrating their time together, so that was that was incredibly sympathetic to people they were they were looking at them, and thinking all I remember when I was young, and in love and wanting to travel around, so I think that was really heartbreaking to hear about that and then Leonard Dick as well. Of course he was He was this incredibly unique man who just had this absolute curiosity for the doors and would often go on these trips, traveling on his own at two to remote places, such as northern BC so I think people were really shocked to hear those deaths in the first place, the other element to this that really captured people's attention was at who the suspects were and to this day there's still a lot of blank spots in our knowledge about who can McLeod. Embarrassment Goski were, but we know that they were incredibly young. They were eighteen nineteen. They they routine adults, but teenager is still. People were asking the question in her still asking the question, what could have motivated them to to do such a thing, and not only that, but then turn around and and drive across the country, trying to evade capture by by police which they managed to do for quite a long time. Yeah, the idea of like kids on the Lam you know with this capability, and then just the. The way that it played out over days. You know no one knew what was going to happen next, they they were. You know suspects. Who are you know hiding in the Bush like the deep Bush remember that like just yeah, absolutely, and that's that's it. People were were really watching with bated breath. I think I certainly was watching with bated breadth There was a certain point where. We know that they went into into the Gillam area in Manitoba, and that was a remote spot where it's one road in one road out so ever owner saying while they're cornered, they will be found eventually, and as the days went by, it just seemed less and less likely that they would be found alive. So I think that was something that. That everyone was really. Really really curious to see what would happen I. Guess on For one part of it, but also. Anxious about it, because if the suspects are found dead, which ultimately they were then, that means all sorts of other things. It means there's there's probably never going to be a full explanation for what happened and of course it's it's another loss of life so there is that as well? Yeah, with all complete due respect to the the victims families, the stood, play out like a movie and a lot of ways, and you you mention this tragic and obviously for the victims families because they don't Ha- ultimately have a an answer for why or or or sort of even just that. Comfort like okay they're. They're caught and they're going to have to hold be held accountable. eventually I'm curious to know what is the status of this case now a year later, especially given the fact that these two young men were found dead. yeah, it's it's a good question and a fair question when my colleague and I were contacting the RCMP last week to write vote the anniversary of this case. The answer that we got back from them was that the case is practically essentially closed. They're not investing anymore. Certainly a I don't know exactly what these tasks would be, but they said that they have some kind of administrative tasks. They're tying up. For All intents and purposes, the case is closed in. They're not investigating anymore. The most interesting piece of that being that they never did determine a motive for for this case at all so. There is no motive but. They're no longer looking for one I guess they don't have to find the motive. It's that seems like a really difficult thing to grapple with you. Know I guess like what's their job as a police I, guess to just apprehend the suspects, or or what you know, it seems like a blank spaces. You characterized it before to not know or even be curious about. A motive. Yes, they did. Stop looking for one in. You're right I. mean they're not. Their job is to determine who committed these These crimes and they said from very early on that these were the suspects who they believe were responsible. They determined with the what they call the high degree of certainty that that it was in fact, these people especially after their bodies were found in, and they had a couple of videos that they had made on on a camera camera. That actually belonged to Leonard Dick which I find very sad. And on that camera they had bid confessed to the killings so. The police from their point of view have determined that they were the suspects and that they have died in. There won't be trial or anything like that, so yeah, I mean from from that point of view. I guess from investigative point of view. There doesn't need to be a motive in order to to prove what happened. to to their standard. I think for a lot of those of us who've been watching pretty. Keenly. There is something that really does feel like. It's missing there. It's not very It's hard to resolve I guess without knowing why on Earth. This happened the way it did especially with such young suspects. and to to your point about the victims,.

"They sound concerning couple of things that in particular concerning is that the decision of the NPC that authorized the drafting of this law also said that mainland national level national security organs will be allowed to establish a presence in Hong Kong bright in Hong. Kong will partake in implementing national security laws. Laws in Hong Kong so effectively. That is bringing into Hong Kong for the first time. The mainland secret police, the Ministry of Public Security will be allowed to operate on the ground here in Hong Kong. The other areas of concern include a recent statement by one of the best chance of the Hong Kong Macau Office. WHO said that? In some extreme cases Beijing may have jurisdiction themselves over some serious national security cases, so taking the case entirely out of the hands of the Hong Kong judicial system also some comments by the Secretary for Justice this week that people shouldn't expect the mainland drafted National Security Law to. To to follow Hongkong Common says so many different ways in which the Hong Kong court system. The Hong Kong rule of Law Hong. Kong's autonomy from Beijing is being undermined by this latest development, and really as I say, we're going to have to wait and see exactly what the law says. When in the draft emerges, but it doesn't bode well for Hong. Kong's autonomy ended also just adds another tool in the toolbox full both Hong Kong and Beijing governments to continue to prosecute the campaign of low-fare. Let's talk a little bit about the the legacy of twenty nineteen. You write that the protests built a revolutionary. And this this is like a Leno experience for high schoolers and college kids, but I to apologize to my listeners for these past few episodes, and over the past few years for having been so US focused so I have to international analogies to make here. The first is Poland. In the in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, you know the lack of economy wants Catherine. The great wiped it off the map, and over the course of the twentieth century as well where there is only a few decades where Hoan had had her independence. Independence but these sorts of occasional protests and rebellions were able to keep the flame of of an independent Poland alive, and keep that dream in that culture, going through centuries of of not having having political autonomy, and there's the same narrative that can be told of course for the for the history of Ireland, but as you right anti, there's also a fear that this could turn into that that that Hong Kong could turn into something looking like twentieth century Belfast, which is also not particularly optimistic. Take so on the one hand it. You write about this, and it looks to me like there is something incredibly beautiful and noble about these young people in the in the whole city really. Making, making claim, and and imprinting this on on their memories that the values that this protest stood for is something that matters and something that they're not gonNA. Forget anytime soon, but on the other hand. You know you just talked about the of the National Security Law, and they're really seems to be nowhere out and no optimistic. Pass forward. At least you know with the with the she regime in power. So what's your take on on on where all this leaves? Hong Kong, that's a great great ovation's the poll points particularly interesting, so underlying not only the most recent protest movement, but I would argue the the entire recent history of political protests in Hong Kong has been. This idea of Hong Kong identity, and ultimately the anxiety over his influence in Hong Kong, and as the protests went on last year. There was this very strong sense of A. Firstly a unique Hong Kong identity, but developing I think even further into this idea of a Hong Kong. Nation now I want to be very clear here to draw distinction between nation and state, so the Hong Kong people on the hull, and not asking for independence. We're not talking about an independent Hong Kong state, but we're talking about the idea of a nation within a state or what some political scientists call stateless nations, but if you think of other stateless nations such as the Catalans in Spain or the Quebec, wine Canada, or the Kurds in Turkey and Iraq there are. Are these people who are distinct people with a distinct cultural identity who don't have a state of their own, but exist within a larger state and the the course of the protest last year I think really helped to solidify and -veloping side ear of the of the Hong, Kong nation as a distinct cultural entity and so much of what went on around the protest last year was the beginnings of Nation Building with that is through cultural iconography with that through the singing of national anthem. They developed a song the glory to Hong Kong, which was sung the national anthem. And through the creation of myths and legends, as of national stories tails off the protesters, and what the protesters endured, and the fate of what they call Matas in in the course of the protests, all of these things tied together with the broader protest movement have developed enough solidified this idea of a a of Hong Kong nation, and again I'm being directly emphasized not an independent Hong Kong state, but the Hong -ation. Client entity. And so now we come to this year where Beijing has decided to crack down and impose this national security law and try and put a stop to this, but the reaction that we've seen from Hong. Kong. Seems to be to even further drive them towards this idea, of Hong, Kong nationhood, indeed, it seems to be pushing people in some cases towards the more extreme idea of Hong Independence, and the way that I. Sort of have tracked this in particular is by listening to protest slogans, you understand a lot about the progress of political movement, a protest movement what they demanding and what they thinking through the slogans they use just look at the woods. They use the protest movement in Hong Kong began last year with the slogan. Hung on Guile, Hongkongers add oil this rallying cry from the very beginning was appealing to a certain idea of identity. Afteh, the government tried to suppress the movement by banning face masks. That slogan became hung in. Hong Kong. Rebel Hongkongers resist. After a protest, the felt his death tragically, and then another protest to was shot by police in early November. That slogan became Hong Kong in. Hong Kong as revenge, and then in the last recent weeks since the National Security Law was announced by Beijing. That slogan has become hung. Kuen Guac Hong Kong nation built. And that is but one of a number of pro-independence will pro autonomy oil slogans that that suggests that this sentiment of of Nation building is is continuing and being fed by Beijing's repression, and it's sort of leads back to this really. In a ways very tragic point that if Beijing just stepped back and let Hong Kong have the space that it wanted. None of this would be happening. Beijing would not have to be contending with Proto Independence Movement..

I want to be fighting. Not because I want you know that fancy house in DC. Not because I want you know. There's the fancy pen I get to sign laws with but because I want to help you and I want to make your life better and I think that that's an argument. That women can make very powerfully. Because that's what women do. In general I is is fight Four people and is is how people you know in you you think about this as as MOMS chromos. Teachers is lawyers end and so. I think that they can make that really compelling argument and I think that that really gets voters motivated I agree and I think really to put the emphasis on On the what? You said that some people say that this is working. But it's not working for you and I can see that because I think there's a big sort of energy in the mid West right now feeling left behind. I think that's been happening for like the past twenty or thirty years particularly in areas where people feel like okay. The rest of the world is doing fine. But everybody's forgotten about my little town in the midwest everybody's forgotten about us and we're not doing so well and I think speaking to those people and saying you know what all these people in Washington are saying. Oh the economy is so great but like is it. Because you're not doing. Wow because farmer suicides. An all time high in Wisconsin. So obviously like things are going well for you. Tell me more about how I can help you. I think that's a really effective message to say I see you. Even though other people might be doing fine I see you and I care about you. You know one of the things. I talk about this in my book. Voter was the importance of in lots of other people. Of course we've talked about this true about building. Alliances among women across class and race lines and in order to get what we need in order to be helped in the way that we need to be. And you know it's an ongoing challenge. There is still data about. I don't know how good it is and we'll see as the race unfolds about Y Women Not Favoring Democratic candidate necessarily. I think it's sort of too early to be dispositive about that but I do think that we're seeing you know. A lot of women vote for the male candidates in this race. There's no reason so far and that may continue to be true so one of the questions. That's come up in these last few days prominently in the press is whether it's time For either warring or kosher or both of them to quit the presidential race and needless to say I'm not speaking to the mayor's bad idea at all but as politicians of course they have to consider what what they're hearing from the media and otherwise and and how they Preserve their brands so to speak and their point of view and I sort of thought it might be fun for us to think about this because it doesn't often happen. They happen for sort of everyday people. I gotTA quit this job. No we just put our heads down you know and keep trying to work harder but say you you know. Kelly say you were in senator clover shirts shoes or Senator Warren shoes. Neither of whom has one So far in both of whom have a big challenge ahead of them in South Carolina How would you? How would you evaluate that matter repeat? Let me quit while I'm ahead and TRY TO POSITION MYSELF. For instance say to BP. I think the answers different for the two of them not so much because of their standing in the polls or anything like that but because of the the lanes that they inhabit because the moderate lean is so much more crowded right now in this race. I think that I if I were Senator Klobuchar I would think seriously about whether people rightly or wrongly think that she is standing in the way of a moderate gaining consensus. And then you people a lot of people really want somebody to beat Bernie and you know. So if because she's in that more crowded lane if she is in the way of that you know. It's it's possible that that would sort of hurt her brand at some point that maybe she stayed in the race too long. You know we can to beat all day whether that is actually true or not whether that game theory makes sense. But I think that there's a perception of that. And so if she let's say were to leave the race and endorsed Joe Biden. Who seems like you know of the the moderates may be the one who could who could pull it off? You know maybe that does give her You know whether a VP spot for him or somewhere in his cabinet. You know. I I could see that being very valuable for her. I'm not sure that there's as much of an argument For Senator Warren to drop out. Because I'm not sure what it gets her and I'm not sure that it helps this project that everyone wants to beat Bernie because they think of Warren drops out half her voters might go to Bernie and then that actually helps him so you know. I don't know that it positions her quite as well and may be staying in the race and being the fighter the person to take down. Bloomberg is is what positions her better for you know a VP slot or a position in a cabinet or just being able to stay in the Senate and she could work there. So I don't necessarily think it's the same answer for both of them but I. I do think that it's something they need to be thinking about seriously You know I don't want them to drop out of the race. You know I said the other day like my choices. Two through eight have already dropped out and you know. I don't want more of my first place choices to drop out but I think it's something that they need to consider a specially if there is widespread panic rightly or wrongly about Bernie cutting the nomination. I This is interesting. I agree with you that it's different for both of them and I agree. It's because of the lanes but my conclusion is the opposite that because the moderate lane is so crowded. I'M NOT SURE WHO. Amy Klobuchar would know to endorse or to negotiate with whereas Elizabeth Warren clearly. She's a line on the left with Bernie and so she could go to Bernie and say. Hey if I drop out. Can you guarantee me? Xyz And then that materially helps Bernie if amy drops out. It's not entirely clear to me who that helps. Does it help Bloomberg does it help. Biden doesn't help Buddha judge and so for her. It's a lot going to be a lot harder to figure out. Who are you negotiated with you? Are you going to go all three of them and say if I drop out? Will any of you give me this? I mean for her. I I think that would be a harder decision so for for me I think. Yeah that is a very. I mean. They're both really smart analyses. I I agree with pieces of both. I would add one other thing to this. I guess from the vantage point of My own involvement going back aways one of the most important things that happened For African Americans in presidential primaries was of course the fact that Jesse Jackson stayed in and he stayed in and he ran again for years. Later and my recollection. I don't have these numbers in front of me. Is that at the end of the Democratic primaries I think in the second campaign he had received twenty percent or so of people's votes that was enormous. That had never happened before it shows the strength of him personally but certainly of an African American candidate and their viability. And you know. I think that that's an instructive lesson. for both Senators as we are in this place this year and go forward a wanted to turn for a minute to this point about the vice presidency and talk quickly about that and then I think we're gonNA WANNA close today's episode with a little bit of Inspirational what's next to do discussion. But you know. Obviously there's been lots of discussion in this whole context about Some people saying that a woman vice presidential is really important other saying not so much. Certainly Stacey Abrams yourself. Right out there a couple of weeks ago. Think she'd be happy to be the candidate with anyone Kamala Harris has been Significantly more circumspect but then of course if it's the case as we've just discussed You know there are other Women who could be considered for that spot not only senator warm and Senator Klobuchar. Certainly you know other members of the Senate or governor. That spot has a history of being considered by presidential candidates for a range of people. So I just was curious about kind of what you're nearing so to speak on your respective streets about this aspect of things. Well Rachel Bitta coffer has said that she thinks that Stacey Abrams is the should be the VP. Pick for any of them who are left And you know I can definitely see that. I love soup runs. I think she is incredibly inspirational. I think her as Rachel Offers. Her charisma is just extra. Think it's hard to even measure but you know I don't know. I think that that would make a lot of sense. I think that would be a good pick. She certainly has the the the chops of of being out there doing the work. And so I think that would be good. I think that the a lot of the so-called k. high of the Communist supporters still have not settled on a candidate. There's sort of reluctantly deciding to vote for someone you know. Some of them were in some of them Biden. And I think that you could get an awful lot of them really excited and a and a lot of them. Are you know people who are happy to give a lot of money into a ton of work and so I think you know comma could be a very strategic pick a you know a across the board as well and I think it helps that? California is a pretty safe place for us to be taking a senator out of you know. We're we're not gonNA have to worry about losing that Senate seat it'll still go to a democrat. So I think in that case you know. Kamla might be a really good pick. Although she'd be an excellent attorney general to if that was the thing that she was interested in doing in the future so I could easily see either one of them. And I think I I'm I'm going to be deeply uncomfortable with the Democratic ticket is all white and so I think that you know in that case. Both of them would would help with that issue as well. I think that you know as much as I would love to see Warren As VP of she is not president. I do think that taking somebody in Massachusetts where there is a Republican governor. And you know we could at least short term end up with a Republican senator in that seat I think could be Kinda Frisky so you know. I think we need to think about those sorts of issues as well But you know I. I'm all for the Stacy Harris as VP to literally anybody. Well I'm fairly sure that in Massachusetts you actually have to have a special election. They're not gubernatorial early appointed. Yeah it would be derby a few month gap at least well. There was an appointed person so I wanted to say here that I saw a data point earlier today and in another context which I think is important to what we're doing here in to all our listeners are doing it was about The fact that In the last few years I forget the actual time period only fourteen percent of any exhibits in major museums. Were of women artists that made me think about political pundits which who of course are overwhelmingly male as well and and overwhelmingly white so I wanted to say to our listeners. That well of the three of us. Don't pretend to be totally knowledgeable on this subject. I think it's really important for us to have this conversation. Among ourselves among women who do pay attention who do care and who are thinking hard about this and so that's the context in which We had this discussion today And I just wanted to close it with The notion that You know of course. The most important thing for us all to do is to stay mobilized There's an argument for focusing on whatever candidate matters the most to you or if not playing the odds. I've started getting phone calls from friends asking me about that. Because they don't want to waste their time or their vote. But what we do want to say to you here is just. Please stay mobilized active. Do everything you can killing and Sophie. Any final on that this is something will be returning to for sure but I think it's also important for people to remember that as important as the top of the ticket is. It's not the only part of the ticket and so you know. If in the end your favorite candidate is not nominee that will certainly be the case for some percentage of the people listening here that you know. Find Down Ballot race. That is exciting to find a woman running for state legislature governor. Something that you're really excited about passionate about and knock on doors and increase turnout for that down. Ballot candidates will also increase turnout for the ballot. So you can. You can go out there and be motivated whether or not. The actual presidential nominee is the one who inspires you. I agree and I want to put in a plug as well for pacing yourself I see a lot of people that I know who got active in politics. Oppose Twenty Sixteen. Who you know a little crazy for the midterms really got into it? And burn themselves out and now are feeling horribly guilty It's okay to symptoms not be able to take on everything. I find it more helpful to sort of budget out my time and say okay. I will write this number of postcards every week and no more. I will donate this amount of money every month. And no more. I will canvass this number of times and no more and that way sort of set yourself limit so that you have because this is not actually sprint. This is the.

"Literally have tears and I'm trying really hard not to ugly cry right now. Thank you guys so much for sending in those audio clips or really just humbles us to hear how the podcast has impacted you and to everyone else who took the time to submit an itunes rating or review. We're just so grateful. We read every single one and truly it humbles us cannot inside at enough and you know we wanted to highlight a couple of those reviews To say thank you for taking the time and just to share how much of an impact it has made on us on this journey of making this podcast so a couple that I chose one is from a sixteen year old girl. And I've mentioned this in an episode before because it really didn't impact me and I wanted to bring it back and actually read a lot of what she said so she sat. I'm a sixteen year old. Who's used to listening to and reading Christian stuff that is geared towards MOMS and wives? I don't think I can explain how refreshing it was to hear them. Say that they knew high-schoolers might be tuning in. Because I think most people assume that high schoolers would rather be sending snaps on snapchat than learning about how to serve aboard. Also the idea that it's not just for MOMS and wise was thrilling. Because I think people forget that you're just as important to the Lord when you're single as married. It was especially lovely. When they said that women are not only meant to be wives and mothers. But first and foremost to be disciples of Christ. This podcast has opened my eyes to a lot of things that I need to work on my heart and his honestly made me feel like I belong in the Christian world as much as anyone else And this review has stuck with me for many reasons why that captures our heart to communicate that the Gospel and our spiritual disciplines are for all seasons of life. You know no matter what our life look like. Our ultimate purpose is the same and that is to glorify God and then to we really do hope to communicate how important every member of the body is and really show how we need each other right. We need each member in the body to be healthy as local church and as the big C church. And so thank you Lindsey Jay Hunt for leaving this review and it really just encouraged us to press on and one more review that I wanted to pull was from Kate. Rc She said. I can't say enough how much I love the daily grace podcast. I listen weekly. I've never listened to a podcast by women for women that has been so challenging. Convicting and encouraging. This is not your average. Listen and feel better about yourself. Podcast these women spend time preparing to teach truth but in such a loving way. I haven't listened to one. Podcast that has not both encouraged and convicted me. Please listen learned with me. Thank you kate for this review and for faithfully listening every week. We're just so grateful. And we appreciate your support and join. I really do prepare for each episode and we make sure that everything we say aligns with scripture and we also pray that we are communicating all of this truth in love and we do hope our listeners always feel a part of the conversation and we really are on this pursuit of holiness together. Wouldn't you say Joanna? Oh yeah absolutely. And it's been so encouraging to see reviews from people of all different life stages I'm new believers seasoned believers and a couple that I wanted to share one is from Pamela Hubbard and this is right back on the podcast I released. She said this podcast is relatable and grounded in the truths of the Gospel. The topics meet you right. Where you are encouraging you to simultaneously grow deeper in Christ will also resting in His grace and I just loved that because our heart is that that would happen that we would rest in who God is and in His grace but also that would empower ass and compel us to growth obedience. Yeah Another one from our farnd she said the focus of daily grace is spot on God his word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ are made much of you'll find solid biblical truth here to help you grow in your love for the Lord which is what transforms every area of your life such joy and hope to be found and that is our prayer that would be made much of the Gospel be made much of here and one more from Amanda Forty two she said so relatable and filling. I've been looking for a podcast. That would really dive into faith in scripture but felt like it was good conversation. This is it. I'm constantly saying Yes to every point made in the episode this'll be a shy can replay over and over and still find things. I missed the first time I especially was touched by this one because our heart for this from the beginning has been that we can offer deep truths of scripture in a way. That is meaningful approachable. Yeah and that actually impacts our daily lives so thank you so much for all of the reviews. There are so many We would've loved to spend hours reading them all but unfortunately we can't do that and but we so appreciate them and I did want to introduce to you. Another person who really helps to make these. Podcasts sound great and that is our editor Jesse. Believe me our podcast would not be what it is without Jesse and so we actually wanted to welcome her onto the podcast. Give you a little behind the scenes info here so Jesse. Thank you for joining us all. Thank you for having me you guys. It's a privilege for sure. Yeah Jesse came on with US. Pretty close to win the podcast first released and it has been such a blessing off the privileges mind. Yeah you guys have no idea how much I stumbled just reading a quote and Jesse just makes that while Jesse we would love to hear from you. We want to share looking back over the past year. What each of our favorite episodes was back in less than if you haven't had a chance. So Jesse what was your favorite episode. Yeah I think My favorite episode for a while as episode twenty five. What's God's will for your life and I think it became an instant favourite honestly because it's just a really important subject matter because I think there's a lot of confusion and the lack of clarity on the subject. I don't feel that at first. I was well taught in this subject and I feel like you ladies really just hit it home and when discerning God's will and decision making I think a lot of us have expected a sign or some sort of emotional confirmation. I know I have but it's just an encouraging reminder to as long as the decision we make doesn't go against scripture or has sinful motives tied with it we are truly free to make that decision and Shirley as we grow in the Lord and the knowledge of his word and we will grow and godly wisdom to make these decisions but we shouldn't expect like a lightning bolt from heaven whatever to affirm decision by any means. And you guys just did a really good job of widening. The scope of God's will and that is just far more than decision making and that even within scripture talks about the will of the Lord's for our sanctification that we abstained from sexual immorality and then in another area rejoice always praise these give. Thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you and I think all of this was just nailed home so well and so clear for me in a just encouraging reminder and surely it was helpful to many people. But I'm curious about you guys though Stephanie. What was your favorite episode in the last year? Yeah I note about the episode. Just mentioned I remember when we were working through that episode thinking man. I wish someone told me this when I was eighteen. Yeah I do hope that that episode continues to serve people all ages and brings clarity on that topic and yeah we're just reminds believers of their freedom in Christ but as far as my favorite episode. I can think of three that stand out but I decided to choose the one out of the three. That's an interview We're really grateful for every single person who takes the time to record with us and speak into a topic Often hard topics that maybe we feel like we just want that extra voice of wisdom to add to the conversation so I'm grateful for everyone that has come on but one interview. That deeply impacted me was episode. Fourteen discipleship and evangelism with Tamsin Baker. And so- Tamsin reminded me how discipleship and evangelism are naturally part of the life of a believer and I actually really listened to the episode This week and gained so much someone said they repeat listening to the episodes and get more and I'm the same way honestly and you know again listening through I was just so encouraged to be consistent and the word you know. She talks about how the little mornings of faithfully reading the word adds up and so it was encouragement to me. Even this week to have this long term mindset and then she also just was such a great example of being purposeful in the mundane so to have is to see windows of opportunities to show the love of Christ and the Gospel and then lastly man I think she exemplified the so well but she was so others oriented she really cared for others and that was just so evident you know not just their spiritual needs but also their tangible you know everyday needs and so yeah just listening again to that episode. I was just you know fired up again and reminded to be consistent in the word. Be purposeful in every little thing I do because it matters for eternity answer just love to really care and love for others. And so yeah. That was my favorite episode. From this past year doing what was yours this was the hardest question scrolling through thinking. Ooh that one. Oh I know I did decide to land on one. That is a current favorite because I think back on it and draw from it often. That's episode thirty nine. What to do with bad days and and it has just been thinking back on all the things that we talked about an the truth that the Gospel actually transforms our bad days and our bad days. Difficult experiences have good purposes and good outcomes. It's just been such a source of encouragement for me when I'm having a hard moment Said that's a big one. I mean some close seconds. Where like preaching the Gospel to yourself episode seven and suffering and sovereignty with Maurizio Gutierrez? Ray Wins you gotta get your tissues ready for that lead but I really. It was really hard to pick. But it's been so sweet to learn from these episodes myself. Yeah you know I was going to choose preaching the Gospel to yourself as well. Because there's a cool backstory to that that we haven't shared that's the only episode that we lost the recording and had to you. That's right I forgot about that. Yeah and honestly it was a whole nother episode when we revisited it and I think that was all God and that was such an impact for Apple said for essay. Because you know not only did it lead to as writing the study but it really challenged us to have gospel fluency and really dig into how does the? Gospel apply these Berry real aspects of our life. And how could we communicate that so I think that was a very really pivotal time in our podcast? So yeah that was definitely good one. If you haven't listened to it but yeah as many of you know we always under interviews by asking our guests three fun questions and thought it would be fun for the three of us to answer those questions focusing on this past year. So we'll talk about our top three favorite things from this past year. What's on her nightstand? And what's a resource that has most stirred are factions for God's word in this past year so in twenty nineteen so Joanna start us off there? What are your top three favorite things from this past year? The pressure so we have kind of shared some different kinds of things and our favorite things. Maybe it's like a food item or a spiritual resource or an experience. So I thought I'd share one of each of those good place. Oh I is my new T. habit drinking tea a EB. I'm drinking some right now. Lovely Roy boasts. Tease is and so. I GOT TO HAVE MY Red Roy. T and my new electric cattle with my natural bliss French Manila creamer and I had to recommend to one of.
"one years" Discussed on Left, Right & Center
"This is Josh Barrow. Welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet provocative antidote to the self-contained opinion bubbles dominate political debate. It is the first week of November our and this week. The New York Times made a lot of liberals nervous new high-quality battleground state polls from the time. Paint a picture of a close twenty twenty election sending sending a different message from the national polling. We see more often with big leads for Joe Biden Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders. Part of the message here is that trump's electoral college advantage appears to be widening that whatever trends are happening in the suburbs that continue to weaken Republicans with part of their traditional base. Then maybe taking away. Votes in Texas or even more votes in California -Fornia but in Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin. Those effects aren't as important things remain close. And you could conceivably see. Donald trump be reelected while losing the popular vote road by an even wider margin than he lost last time and that has a lot of Democrats wondering what they need to do in this primary to prevent that from happening. We're GonNa talk about that later today. And how you should think about polls so far in advance election but now let's bring in our left right and center panel as always. I'm your center. I'm joined by rich lowry editor of National Review on the right and on the leftist Sabil Rahman of Demos. We also have a special guest today Oreo Edwards Levy who is reporter and pulling editor at Huffpost. Hello everyone hey josh. Hi everybody so There were elections on Tuesday in a few states. We can talk about twenty nine thousand nine elections before we turn to twenty twenty And Republicans did hold onto the governorship in Mississippi By about six points points but in Kentucky Republican incumbent Matt Bevin lost despite a last-minute assist from president trump who rallied for him in the state. Andy Bashir won that Election Kentucky succeeding where other Democrats have failed in two ways. He held onto port of the ancestral democratic base in Appalachian Eastern Kentucky. which is otherwise swung hard toward Republicans? Any made inroads in one strongly Republican suburbs of Louisville and Cincinnati. The suburbs also delivered for Democrats in Virginia giving the Party control of both chambers of the state legislature sure and therefore full control of that state's government for the first time in decades Sabil. What lessons do you see in these results as Democrats look to next year so a couple of things jump out out I is this is a pretty important result for the Democrats right. You have a really important shift in Virginia now with the TRIFECTA that's going to change the politics and the policies command that state. And when you compare Virginia Kentucky this move in the suburbs that you're describing really is a strong pattern across the different states We'll see there also is a similar move move happening in rural counties to in the direction and I'm sure we'll talk about that in a moment The other thing is that you know there is a grain of salt rate. It's twenty one thousand nine. It's off your election It's hard to extrapolate national trends. So it's this isn't quite the same as the precursor to twenty eighteen But it is a strong result for the Democrats rich. When you look at Virginia Democrats it felt like we're having a rough year in Virginia. You know you had the the black face scandal with the governor and the other black face scandal with the attorney general and rape accusations against the Lieutenant Governor And some Democrats in the legislature and the governor staking out a position on abortion that Republicans thought was very extreme outrage. The median voter. None of that seems to to have stopped the steady forward march of Virginia becoming a blue state. Yes this marshes right word. It's a trend. That's been going on for a long time. Has To do with demographic changes ages in the state state becoming better educated more suburban more diverse so the whole divide seeing now between the suburbs and more rural working class voters. It's something that's been going on for quite a long time. And trump has just accelerated it and he's His conduct is repellent. Want to a lot of of former Republicans in the suburbs especially women or the question and we'll get stressed this in a little bit as whether he can do what he didn't. Twenty sixteen draw. Aw a A broadly are radioactive. Released E- easy to make radioactive opponent and take off enough of the edge in in the suburbs to just barely over the top again. Arielle is the national story. That simple as you know re Republicans keep doing worse in especially inner suburbs and Democrats. Democrats keep doing worse in rural areas. And if that is the story is that an even trade between the two parties I mean I think that is in large part what we are seeing across the country and you know I think that can obscure event. There will always be things happening in a particular race in particular level. I mean you saw that in Kentucky where certainly considerations that were not national politics obviously. That's it gubernatorial race where it's a little bit of a different story in terms of how much which partisanship is going to influence people's votes but you are seeing these broader demographic trends of these areas sorting themselves out more and more and you. You know we'll see whether that ends up evening out and whose favor that is rich. The governor's Arial notes. There were some specific local factors. Matt Bevin was not the best like person including institutionally in the Republican Party in Kentucky. He tried to defeat Mitch McConnell and a primary if years ago so after this close result he lost by about five one thousand votes. He's basically said he's not going to concede he thinks there were regularities. He wants a canvas. Maybe he's going to contest the election first of all. What are you like he lost? What do you make of him coming out and saying that and then also I mean what do you make of the response of the Republican Party in Kentucky which has been mostly to sort of ignore him and say well he lost the five thousand votes is not a a a lot in the scheme of things but recount are- canvas sincere? A scenario is huge and the chances overturning that are extremely minimal basically impossible muscle so i. I don't like the trend we saw stacey. Abrams Georgia as well. You lost please be gracious about it. It's a very tough thing. Personally it's hard to take but go away and don't tell us for years afterwards. How you were truly? The winner. Went clearly weren't beal. I as I I hear Democrats worrying what about you. Know what is true. IS TRUMP GONNA admit he lost if he loses the two thousand twenty election and this I. I've not been very worried about that. For reasons. That are are playing out on the Ground Kentucky. which is you know you can say? I didn't lose. I didn't lose and that can be irrelevant if other people won't go along with it and it looks to me here. You know the partly I think you know as noting five thousand votes as a lot if it was five hundred votes we might see see a different situation but also it's peril to trump and that you have an executive who the other institutional elements in the party never really wanted in charge and there's a part of them that I'm I'm sure is just you know pleased to be done with them. Yeah I mean I think I think that's a hopeful Lesson I hope you're right taking the model of of Kentucky I look. Here's the here's the challenge. In some ways that the the decision making factor here is going to be the rest of the institutional right. What the party things right? If the Party doesn't go along with it then and it just becomes sort of a slightly embarrassing stance on the part of the losing candidate and it goes away and our democracy proceeds in democracy only works if both sides recognize the legitimacy the results right and so so I think I think in that sense. You are right what I worry about is when we talk about the impeachment scenarios there there is such a strong strong incentive at the moment for the institutional powerbrokers of the Republican Party disarray fall in line with the president that that's where I would put more concern right presents going to do what he's GonNa do. We always has but at what point does the rest of the party decide. You know what the rules are the rules we have We have other people. We can put forward in an electoral contest. Then we don't need to keep following this train. Well let's talk about impeachment I think that's a that's a good time for us to talk about impeachment Rich there's there's an article in the New York Times This week about an emerging defense dance that house. Republicans are talking about I as it becomes clearer that there was some sort of quid pro quo here around Ukraine ambassador Gordon. Sunland has changed his mind. He refreshed his recollection and and said. Oh Yeah I did. I did tell the Ukrainians they would have to make this public statement about investigating the Biden's in order to get the release of the military aid and so Republicans are talking about the possibility of saying essentially that these guys were freelancing. Yes somehow a message got to the Ukrainians that there was this quid pro quo that but maybe trump never authorized them to send that message. Maybe he didn't want breath after all. Trump's specifically denied Senator Ron Johnson that he had proposed a quid pro quo and especially in. The case of Rudy Giuliani. Maybe he was even acting for for his own independent financial interests. He had all these business interests in Ukraine. Maybe he was using his position. Close to the president to push his own agenda. And that's where this quid pro quo idea came from in. The president is innocent. It and I think in that context. It's worth considering a tweet. That Rudy Giuliani sent. This week that looks outwardly. Like defensive the president but I'm not sure it is. He says the investigation I conducted concerning 2016 two thousand sixteen Ukrainian collusion and corruption was done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges unquote. So is it a viable defense into the president to basically throw rudy. Giuliani under the bus. And say you know whatever. These people did. The president did authorize them to do that. Because it certainly sounds like Giuliani is going to say no. I did this in my capacity as the president agent. Yes I say a couple of things one. There's a glimmer of an opening for this defense. Because most people we've heard from so far really almost all the people we've heard from so far Had what trump was thinking second or third hand because they weren't the insiders which is more Bolton Mo- Vini Giuliani and it's entirely plausible. That Giuliani and important respects was freelancing but I think that would have to do more with his business dealings in Ukraine. So it's just hard to believe. Leave that that these guys got this cooked up this idea on on their own. How how did the defense aid get withheld? According to and trump mentioned on the call talked to Rudy. which again is an indication that he and rudy are on the on the same board on the soap a month ago When it was still pretty early I had a theory that it might defense? I offered tentatively that maybe there was the intention of quid. Pro Quo. Never really got to the Ukrainian so it's clear at least it got the Ukrainians and I still. I know you're skeptic Josh by so think Defense Republican senators will end up falling back on. is they got the money. And they didn't make a statement about investigations. Well so the bill. This is. This is the sideshow Bob Defense. You know the you know attempted murder. There's no there's no noble prize for Attempted Chemistry Right But that in the simpsons. That's a joke like is it. Is it really good enough to say well. You know the president didn't get away with it and therefore no harm no foul. Yeah I think it any fifth-grader recognizes just how paper thin excuses is. You know won't get you very far in in the real world and we'll get you very far year. It's it's it's not an excuse. Use It all right. Of course the the the the point is in the attempt and I agree with what Richard I mean. Excuse the freelancing. Excuse this each week. There's a new sort of angle right right and they all kind of keep falling down one after another in large part because of stuff that the president and Giuliani and others keep saying on live. TV and on twitter from their own mouths. So you know. It's it is kind of absurd so I know you hate this question rich but I so this still isn't impeachable and I ask again. I wanted to because of that. Giuliani tweet..

"This is the twenty-fifth eighteen global agreement asking for voluntary emissions reductions. By most of the nations of the world the president announced the withdrawal on the first day that the United States could announce. It's it's legal withdraw from this. The withdrawal will not take effect for one year so not until November four. Th Two thousand twenty the day after the presidential election so under any circumstance Arkham stance the US will be withdrawn from the treaty. For at least some period of time presumably at new president could put us back into it but it will we will be withdrawn for a bit it emily. It's kind of not a surprise. I mean the president has rolled back emission standards for cars. He's loosened standards for coal plants. He's got subsidies for renewable you name it. He has done done it when it comes to when it comes to weakening protections for the climate and undermining and attempts to decrease emissions. So is this actually important that he's doing this. Yeah it's important. This is the worldwide climate climate agreement. That's supposed to get countries moving towards saving the planet. You know the saving grace of this is that he had to give a year's notice and so this this will actually go into effect the day after the twenty twenty elections which means that if trump is not reelected it could effectively be stopped and it puts into stark doc. Relief the choice that voters will be facing and making in November about the United States. Whether it's going to be responsible in its reaction to climate change and whether it's going to join with other nations in this like incredibly crucial collective enterprise so when it comes to something like this so the Paris accord I think they're. They're two different kinds of critiques of it. One critique from the right is this just really the hurts American interests and hurts American competitiveness and it's it's other countries taking advantage of American wrecking our economic growth. That's the one side and from the left. It's this is a very sweet tea. It's voluntary said of goals. There are no requirements. Why does even matter because no one even has to hit what why? Why is it important despite those two critiques? Well you just got to start somewhere. I mean collective action has to collecting cohere around something and and Once you once you build the formulations and the and the structure for agreement than you can ratchet things up we've also seen since the original agreement And the targets which I believe are two degrees Celsius We're now at one degree Increase in some parts of the world. Think in a quarter of the globe. It's already one point five. The problem has gotten worse by the targets of the original measurement. So that's a problem and creates that sense of urgency but if you don't have something that gets everybody everybody around the table and work towards these goals. Even if there's someone voluntary then you have to kind of start all over again. which is what we're talking about? If there's a new president they would have to start all all over again which I would just interject quickly in terms of turnout mechanism for younger voters in particular for whom this is a voting issue which again gives the Democratic candidates. Some wiggle room because if those if they're gonNA turn out because you can make the case look climates really going to be screwed if you don't elect the Democrat. Then that gives the Democratic presidential candidate some wiggle room with other parts of the constituency that they need to work hard I would. I would argue that the counter of that John which is that the conservative position and the trump has kind of morphed in a subtle away. It's no it's not really so much. This isn't happening. The full throated. Denial the kind of Bogus denials which they pushed forward have vanished and instead edits moved into what I think is a more effective set of messaging. which is you just say green new deal? AFC Socialists wreck. The economy. Crushed jobs jobs and that I don't know that's more effective as a turn mechanism for the right than what you just described as for young voters on the left but it is a. I think it's a more. I think it's a better argument because more realistic and it does have an actual. It's almost puts numbers on something. It says Oh yeah these guys are trying to destroy The strong industry that we have and take away American jobs and take away jobs and timber and fracking and in Petro hundred. Aston to come on. I don't endorse eight. Yes go ahead. No no just like can't stand to keep hearing it's for so long we already even in Are Denial list or skeptic economy we already are employing twice as many people in solar as we are in coal in the United States. Meanwhile though we're letting leading China just like have this market so this is from John Kerry and Chuck Hagel op Ed from F- for every dollar the United States invest in renewable energy. China is putting in three. We're just like seating this whole territory. Even as the cost of producing. Aaron wind is coming way way down and that kind of renewable Newell Energy is competitive. There is a huge economic opportunities here. And if you think about it as an economic question not simply just open a green. cushy green silliness. It's actually economics. This is where jobs are. This is where economic opportunity is. This is where growth is and it's it's demoralizing the hell that that these people who claim to believe in economic growth and claim to believe in innovation in the future. Just throwing it away. Ah It's maddening. It seems to me if you have younger voters who care about this issue and are going to vote on it And be propelled by it. Then what it does is it. Frees you up to make precisely the case. You're making aching and that Walmart is making and that all of these individual companies that have joined together to push behavior that is renewable and that supports wind and solar that you can make that case to to save suburban voters. You can say look. This isn't about This is about economic the economic future and development of the United ended states. It's not just about these fuzzy lefty ideas. These are smart economic decisions to make about. America's future seems to me. You have lots of free market kit private enterprise people who would Who Join you? And who would buy that argument. This is going to be an incredibly negative election. So I think there's going to be so much much ugly uglier things said about Democrats to caricature them or characterize them that that climate actually probably would you know they'll do uglier things I yeah. Yeah but then we also have to take into account the disproportionate political power of the people who could be losers from this economic shift right. So it's the manufacturing center. It's people people in Kentucky and West Virginia and Pennsylvania who are still involved in coal mining and other extractive industries and those folks really matter in the Electoral College Wjr. I what I don't understand is like the people what shoes a proxy for what they but yeah the the people who the people who live in Miami like if you think about Florida. That's a big state. People live in Georgia breath. Florida's is a state that may well not exist in its substantive form in fifty years. If you live in Miami you own any real estate Miami and you're not incredibly concerned about climate change your fucking Moron and so I don't. I don't understand if you own any beat scribes APP Annie Beachfront Properties doing any beachfront property on the east coast if you're on coastal North Carolina. And you're a voter if you're on coastal Georgia and your voter anywhere in coastal Florida voter and you're not thinking about that as an issue like you're just wanting to give away your most valuable asset and the thing that you know brings you probably the most joy so I don't I find it. Yes you should. Yes the Kentucky voter the West Virginia voter the Pennsylvania voter who works in coal country. Sure how they're valuable but these these there are tons of people who are going to be affected by climate change. You know if you're in Colorado and there are droughts that are hitting you and your you cannot farm farm the way you wanted to farm. People need to be attuned to their economic interests. And be think. Oh Yeah. That's actually important voting issue for me which they're not right now right but it but if we look at those six states we talked about earlier. Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Arizona only Florida and North Carolina fit in the basket. That you're talking talking about so if you were having to make a calculation of what your overall position was that swept in as many states as possible. I think you would have. You would have to be more are worried about how that that message would be received in manufacturing centres states more than coastal states particularly. If you're a Democrat in your coastal at least I you think this your coastal votes may already be with you in Florida support for the fest comes from. Hbo Quick Smart News.

"You shouldn't be punished just as much as things you fully follow through on drunk. Driving is interesting case. Because it's kind of out of your control whether you fully follow through on it. Let me ask. Has This question on me. which is that does the wood the sentencing change If you as the attempted murderer or attempt to bankrupt or had a special community a d position that you were running afoul up so if you were a policeman and you tried to kill you. Relative to trust in authority and the government there you go it would that change the sentencing and then if you were to come up with a scale of people who have a special stewardship and trust in the government. Where would you rank the president on Maintaining that trust in that ranking. Oh I would rank the president high since he is our commander in chief and yeah we definitely definitely have laws. Where if you're in the government and you abused your position of trust that is its own crime? I mean this is just. I don't know what to say like there's a way in which one of the most revealing parts of all of this are the links the arguments that people who are defending trump are willing to make the lengths to which they are willing to go and I think obviously that's the broader point. You're making and you know David's right. It is succeeding to a dismaying in degree. Like even if it doesn't persuade most of the country it is enough for lots of people who just want to look past conduct and some people say to even raise the questions questions that people are using in bad faith to defend the president is to give them energy and I'm sympathetic to that Because I've been saying for ever that Fact checking gives energy to the underlying lie. Even if you think you're doing you're you're right duty but I do think in this case one of the things that issue with any president president and this one in particular is whether the the lengths to which people will go to defend you because the presidency is an honored post in in in American life and we should all in some very vague sense rushed to the defense of a president. Obviously a job created with fear of monarchy. Wouldn't want that as it single qualification. But but but I'm saying there is a rallying around the president that is a part of the tradition and therefore when you do something as a president the knowing that rallying affect takes place you are messing with the public trust here. So it's there is in these defenses and the extremity of the defenses. You're it's actually also part. It seems to me the case. Because when you're a president you your actions are not cabin by the thing you did on a single phone call. They have all of these other effects which is a part of your job in your office and all of those facts are built into the office. So you need to think about it. Quite broadly it seems to me. It doesn't mean that that that you need to impeach her the you need to convict but it it does. It means that it's much more than a single phone call in. It includes to the crazy things.

"The kind of Voters that might have even been part of the trump coalition in the states or whether the Democratic Party by being true to its principles and and kind of more liberal vision can blow low through turnout models change the shape of the electorate in those six dates and other places with a kind of Warren or sanders type candidate. I have a question about the the idea of how significant this poll is a year out nate cones the Times reporter. Who did the palm talking about? It said hey a year out is is basically just as good as right before the election and then need silver. The grew fivethirtyeight said polls a year out like not not that not that that reality based not that important. What's the answer here? I first of all the answer is the pollinger is need to get different first names. It's too confusing to have both nate Cohn silber ever be named nate. Just a problem to actually. I feel like natone nate. Cohn has has. I Know Nate Cohn I've met needs over a couple of times. Cocoon is definitely riding on the coattails of nate silver. He's like oh where's the what's Hot Poli Name. It's nate. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa glommed onto that and the time hired him you don't offense would appreciate the answer to this John. One of these polls year out matter don't matter there's a general principle and then I don't know I didn't see what nate silver of fivethirtyeight sad I did read in The Times. The idea the statement that I and I have a note here go check checking out and see if that's in fact true or if there's like some important caveat but yeah the the the article that went along with the polling said that on average in the last three cycles head to head polls Aguirre ahead of the election have been as close to the final result as those taken the day before The final result I just say like tweet. You know what Posey are out there. But I'm not sure will first of all there aren't polls taken the day before I don't think right because the polls released as the deport but anyway the broader more important point is so much changes in happens. You can't I mean you can set. You can say that. That's been what they result in the the past has been but if there's an instance in which past performance does not predict future results in this current political environment. I think that would be wise to keep in mind in that in that context But I do think the idea that if the electoral college is still in play a in our presidential elections than it is important to look at the at the states that will that will matter Attar with respect to the Electoral College. So I think looking at these six states Makes Sense and then we should probably turn to this idea of what's the actual electric look like. And then WHO's best setup to make the case that electric I thought what was the most interesting thing. Innate cones piece accompanying this story about. His poll was noting. What what kind of people seem to be supporting Biden but not Warren or Warren but not Biden and yeah and that you have the categories of for example? There's sanders seems to pick up a bunch of young voters when you poll who don't want to then vote for Wariner Biden and Biden seems to pick up Like a lot of people who don't seem to WanNa vote for a woman. For example there seems to be a lot of just out and out cold stone sexist in the electorate which was horrified to read forty percent of the people there are six percent of the electorate is by not Warren and forty percent of them was answering yes to questions that made them seem like sexist Texas questions about the ability of Warren and female candidates in general. But and I've said this before but this is basically votes in the Democratic primaries and caucuses are going to be about punditry about what your neighbour thinks so you know Democrats are are by wide majorities fine with having a woman president but they don't think that their fellow Democrats Democrats are fine with having a woman president which means when they vote or the casting vote for the person they think should do the job or they doing the casting vote for the person they think. We'll have the best chance in general unroll action because of people's predispositions about women and that's what a mess that isn't trying to sort that out. Good luck with that. John What do you make of the fact that so this. The poll a swing states included the six states Wisconsin Pennsylvania Michigan Carolina Florida Arizona. It did not include Georgia Texas and Ohio. which are an an Iowa? So I think the presumption being that Ohio an Iowa are now basically Republican states. And it's going to be. They're not really swing states and that but also there's this at least conversation that I hear among people that Georgia and Texas are potentially in play and Arizona certainly played. Do I guess it means it's it's it's making taking some bats on two things one. Is that basically. The shape of the electric highway in Ohio is just Democrats are never gonNA do well enough to reach far enough into the white working class voters in those states or white borough voters in Iowa to beat. Also you've got you've got a Senate race in Iowa that'll with an incumbent Republican that'll tweak things for the for the Democrats and so although by the way we should note but just as a farm state. Here's we should talk about this. If you look inside the Republican coalition it seems to me. Democrats would have some opportunities. Let's talk about role voters for a moment. Bankruptcies for farms are going to be as high as they as they've ever been in two thousand nineteen the bail out to the farmers is now bigger net- net- than the bail out of the car companies under the Obama Administration because of the fight with China and the tariff battles with with with other countries if you were compelling candidate Who could make the case to a rural voters and you believed and again? We're there's some. There's there's some things implicit in what I'm saying that some people don't believe because some people leave these voters are gone at. It's all about identity not economics in there for. Why should Democrat spend a lot of time doing that but back to your basic point David? The Republican coalition has those two states and the Democrat. Coalition doesn't have enough in Georgia and Texas that this cycle. They'll be able to make inroads inroads if you believe in a warren kind of candidacy a pure base rile the base up candidacy which is essentially what trump is running on the republican side. You could try to make a case as for Georgia and taxes but the problem is if you run heavy towards turning out the liberal coalition in those states you would weaken your ability so goes the theory in six states that are are that are closest and that's another reason they picked these six that have a more mixed Electorate as the time sees it and most people only last question on this this topic so John Eight in New York magazine. Some Subsection York magazine. I can't remember which one concludes that the leftward tilt of the Democrat. Kennedy is turning out to be a disaster that they've lost touch with medium voters. They desperately need to get back to the center before they find themselves with unelectable candidate. Is it the case Warren and Sanders or essentially given themselves iron crosses. They've hung iron crosses around their neck for the general election. I find myself wishing that more mourn had not come up with a Medicare for all tax plan like really wish that she had just said. It'll be magic which is what Republicans say all the time but their plans. It's always like oh it'll be. Bajic could economic growth magic. She'll she'll be able to run away from that or is it really something that is going to drag her. I mean people move to the The ideological edge of their parties in primaries right Republicans moved to the right Democrats moved to the left the ideas and you tack to the Center and the general election. There's there's plenty of time. I do wonder about what these candidates are thinking in terms of not sticking with the most popular positions now now. Obviously Warren wants to be able to attract Bernie Sanders voters. And you know I with zero reporting. You could imagine that she is trying to make sure sure that. If and when Zander's drops out he full-throatedly endorses her and so she becomes the candidate of the left. I also think she believes in Medicare for all and yet. There is so much that these Democratic candidates could do for healthcare or for example on immigration with a path to citizenship. That is broadly popular happyhiller. That one wonders whether it would be politically wiser to stick to those positions. I mean this is a question that people like Maddock laziest at Fox have been asking for months and and when they put up the poll numbers every time it looks pretty persuasive to me. As just a matter of pragmatic politics looks for Jason Fitz sticking with broadly sadly popular positions that are more centrist. And that actually could become law would be smarter like we are not going to immediately have medicare for all so we're having They're taking Warren and Sanders. Particularly Warrant are taking a big political risk for something that doesn't seem particularly reality based and so then does it. Is it really necessary. Ray was so this is as you quite rightly pointed out. This is always the problem with primaries. It's why people have Think the primaries are part of the reason. Our politics are so messed up because everybody has to get into a very not only far left but also detached debate as a way to signal to their electorates that they are more pure than the next wchs person to your point emily about the environments can look like a year from now. Let's imagine a Democrat wins. Okay so Democrat wins. If they win it will have been on a restoration ticket which is to say. We're going to fix things post. Donald trump that gives you a huge to do is just start the the day. Okay before you get to Medicare for all you've got a lot of stuff to do to restore store and by the way most of it's going to be overseas and some large portion of it's going to be secret so there's that second of all the the intervening election over the year next year is is going to be scorched earth. So how you're GonNa get this through a medicare for all through Congress even through trying to use reconciliation after that year seems a more unlikely really than even would be today. As you quite rightly said Emily you go to you go to the left or you go to the left the right in your primaries and come back to the middle but that also depends on a you know. Politics has changed a little bit in terms of the Public Square. When you can make that case that you're not exactly the person you ran in the primaries as being it's harder to do that now secondly which should these candidates has the facility and ability to make that case or do they keep stepping on there? You know there are other shoes tied together. And so that's one question. Can they even get back back to that position. And then the question is what do you guys think that position looks like in the general election for a Democrat to to either undermine the president's coalition or to build success in areas like the suburbs Where you've seen some of these opportunities for Democrats are I cannot let the segment paths John on without noting what is surely the most important electoral result from Tuesday surprising result out of New Haven Connecticut which just elected in nineteen eighteen year old a nineteen year old one? It's all doors and this nineteen year old one a staggering ninety percent of the vote. What do you make of the overwhelming mandate mandate one by? Eli Sabin whose mother is noted political commentator Emily Babylon just how significant do you feel victory for the future of the republic. Well fortunately playing for for all those people who feel jittery about the state of the future and the state of the Republic really about whether there is verifiable truth fin these troubled times that we live in. Now I think not just the people in the In the quiet suburbs of new haven and the urban centers of that city but also really across the country in the world can find themselves Sleeping easier now as a result of that Outcome Emily Mazal Tov.

"Me visually but not physically. Is Emily Baz Lan of the New York Times magazine looking at over over skype. Hello Emily although although David Jail how are you. I'm good glad to be here and then joining me not visually but telephonically John dickerson of CBS. Sixty minutes from New York New York Hello John dickerson. Hello David I Is it telephonically. Come come on God interesting radio telephone telephonic. Oh my God you're dripping. You're being pedantic already on. Today's Gabfest election results in Kentucky and Virginia and bold and Democrats and then there are discouraging poll results in swing estates for Democratic presidential candidates then impeachment barrels forward. What happened this week? What is about to happen? And then president trump withdraws ause the United States from the Paris climate accord is that catastrophic or merely terrible plus. You'll have cocktail chatter one year from this this week we will have elected a new president or possibly the same president and this week we saw the last major elections before twenty twenty in a bunch of states that weirdly weirdly have off your elections which are always cute but confusing. Because you're like it's an odd year. Why is there an election? But it's still nice to have and then we also saw some very interesting gene and if you're a Democrat alarming poll results for Democratic primary challenges. So let's start with With the two thousand nine hundred John in the Commonwealth of Virginia cradle title of the Republic the cradle in fact John Dickerson. Democrats took control of the State Senate in the State House Why is that important? Why is it overdue isn't important and overdue? Well I think it's it's important. Well it's for the first time in fifty years so that's when any any time anything for the first time in fifty years you should take note of it. Basically most people would say what this does is it ends the charade that Virginia is not a blue state you know it went from being red to purple to blue and so they're saying that it's that it's Now a blue state and that. I don't know what I think about that debate. That's fine you can have that debate the most interesting thing. It seems to me about Virginia Virginia to the two most important results are first of all that the that Republicans did not win back the seats that they lost in two thousand seventeen when Democrats. It's had strong showings in Republican areas and then Democrats won in additional areas to take control over The two state houses you you now have the to stay two houses in the governorship all insane party which means there's going to be a series of series of legislation passed in Virginia on On Gun Control Troll in particular that'll be Very interesting to watch. Why is that interesting because of the second thing so the first point is Democrats are showing strength? Republicans weakness is in the exurbs the areas out suburbs outside. And that's something we'll talk a lot about because it was also strong for Democrats in Kentucky in the argument is that if it's been strong consistently gently in two thousand eighteen and twenty nineteen that's bad for Donald Trump. But the second thing that's important in Virginia's it's the home of the NRA the forces of gun control gun safety fifty. Whatever you WANNA call it basically now have beaten the NRA in their own backyard? That would mean a lot for gun legislation in Virginia and for the For for the everytown organization it. It's a model for inroads. They might be able to make in other states emily quickly. Let's also hit the. I think probably the other our big state for Democrats. This week was Kentucky where the Democrat in a very red state beat the extremely hated. Incumbent Governor Matt Bevin then in a state where president trump campaign and try to tie the Democrat Anti Bashir to impeachment trump had won the state by thirty Republicans. Want every single single other statewide office. that was up is Bevan's loss a warning trumper not really. Is it just like a particular particular set of circumstances with an extremely bad and hated incumbent. I think more of the latter you know. I wonder if people think differently friendly about the governor in some circumstances than the sort of normal party polarized politics that we have you know. I'm thinking of the fact that a Democrat is governor in Kansas or Republican governor of Massachusetts. There's a way in which that administrative job can. I think seems a little less political will than some other positions and I mostly just think that. Yeah what you said. There was an extremely unpopular incumbent. It's true the president trump couldn't save him but he had been his zone worst enemy. It's a great question but the what I think will be interesting. Is If you match the suburban and exurban results in Kentucky with with what happened with in Virginia and then what happened in the same areas with the same kind of voters in eighteen whether it's demonstrably true that that will all play out the same way in two thousand twenty it suggests enough data points that it puts high and heavy uncertainty in the air for Republican senators who are running in twenty twenty and places where they are. They're gonNA depend on thinking of people. Cory Gardner Susan Collins running in states where they need those votes and if Donald Trump and the Republican Party of Donald Donald Trump has consistently been showing weaknesses in those areas again whether it actually plays out that way in two thousand twenty. I think it's going to make some nervousness and change perhaps perhaps some calculations over the next year as Republicans worry about becoming a party that is justified by the trump coalition which is essentially non college whites Evangelical and rural voters and that nervousness. Again whether it's true or not will create some some Potential for some more more destabilizing action among Republicans Possibly actually. I had a question about that. John is John Cornyn for election. Yes twenty twenty. Yeah I mean that's when when I look at what John Cornyn is doing which is to not be as full-throated around impeachment as you nearly expect the number two Republican in the Senate. He's a Texas Republican. I that to me is a signal. He is very worried that that he you know he could face something serious again. These are these linkages we should all these are drawn in in Pencil and very lightly. But but I would also link it to what what I went on at some length about with Mitch McConnell. The a couple of weeks ago when he was asked About the conversation the president said he had with McConnell and McConnell basically through the president under the bus. I think you can. If you start to see a number of these things you see some Can whether the distancing from the president is even possible. I think that's quite hard to do for anybody. But but just the more uncertainty and destabilization. Shen there is in the world added to the existing highly destabilizing behavior of the president. And the people who are defending him it just adds more kind of frenetic possibilities in an already pretty frantic political world As everybody's trying to gauge what. The politics are going to look like a on election day a year from now now that puts so much uncertainty in in the system for Republicans to see this weakness repeated in these areas that used to be part of their coalition. And yet if you Dr Cory Gardner or Susan Collins or even John Cornyn. Aren't you kind of caught in a vice like you can try to put some distance between you and the So you know I would say most like crazy. Two defenders of trump like mark meadows. Who just seem to be saying? I mean and Lindsey Graham like I am in lockstep with the president no matter what he says says. I'm going in that direction. They're stepping back from that but in the end like there will presumably be an impeachment trial in the Senate and it's very hard to imagine agean than currently voting to remove from office president trump. Now I do think that could change. I mean we saw a public approval of President Nixon drastically graphically moved downward during the public hearings in Watergate but I just feel like from the vantage point of right now. This is like the either Angel or devil of being a trump supporter or a Republican senator. In the trump era. You may be trying to maintain some what kind of semblance of separation. But how far is that really going to get you. Whether a candidate any candidate can separate themselves in a nationalized election and we have them even even an off year so of course we're going to have on twenty twenty is I think basically most people have been in the game. Say You can't do it. You can't get out from under a president however candidates it's in fear of not being re-elected Tend to do things you know. They'd Throw Hail Mary passes. And you know Cory Gardner in Colorado which is basically. He's basically a one third one third state so Democrat Independent. Republican split the state in thirds John Hickenlooper who's running against the former governor and Mayor of Denver is a very popular popular fellow in the state. So Cory Gardner you could imagine again. If even if you stipulate that you can't get out from under a president may still try and and why does that matter. Well that's one guy in one state well for Colorado is a battleground state second of all as we know from this president when a when one person does thing something that that he doesn't like Mike he goes after them so then it becomes. You can imagine that growing into something more. Because then he's attacking a Republican. What's Mitch McConnell? Say about that and so on and so forth so so It's it's it's just as I say a possibility for destabilization. I want to touch emily on. What is potentially the most alarming alarming aspect of the vote on Tuesday which is as of Wednesday actually? Didn't look this morning. There was there was intimations hints even open statements from Republican legislators in Kentucky that they might not accept the results of that gubernatorial election. And there's a the one of the leaders in the Republican House. This is trying to conflict this into a contested election. which was you know about five thousand votes separating the the Democrat and Republican And the stunning the possibility that the how the Kentucky legislature which is dominated by Republicans might try to overturn the popular vote. I actually don't think this will succeed. Eight for a couple of even if they make real push it at which there's no sign they're going to one is Bevin has been a lousy governor even for Republicans. He's made them more unpopular. He's been unpopular blur himself. So why keep them in. Their second is actually fun to have a democratic governor of the rival party in some ways especially if you have a majority in the legislature. I just love. You can really mess with them and score points off of that person and that that's kind of good way to spend a couple of years sometimes so it's not. It's not that bad to be in the out party if you have the majority party in the legislature but also. I don't think it's effective to cheat in elections. After the fact I think it's very effective to suppress the votes in advance when it can be dressed step as some kind of principle of voter integrity but after the fact when the votes already counted the numbers are there it is not. I think it's going to look a lot like cheating. If they try to push uh-huh yeah would in fact be cheating and like deeply alarming. If this happened you know I will just note Kentucky already. Does one one thing to suppress the vote which is to close the polls at six PM. You know. I I think that you're right. This isn't GonNa go anywhere but the fact that it's even being discussed discussed it's just these signs. Were getting from states. I mean we've gotten them also from Wisconsin and of course like the Queen of this is North Carolina. Where if you don't like the way the game is being played you just like throw the board up into the air and all the pieces fall and some other place you just change the rules roles? You know I don't know enough about Kentucky Law to know how the governor's powers are distributed and who decides but you could really imagine this legislature trying to clip the wings of this new Democrat coming in in much the way that the North Carolina Republican dominated legislature has has done that for Roy. Cooper the governor there now let us turn my friends to the polls for the presidential campaign from one kind of Paul to another kind of Paul. There was a really really interesting poll in the New York. Times of Swing States John this week looking at how various Democratic presidential candidates might perform against President Trump and Wisconsin content Pennsylvania Michigan North Carolina Florida and Arizona. Interesting that Arizona is a very legit swing state in a way. That Ohio for example doesn't seem to be anymore why we're Democrats so agitated by the results of this poll and is it is this one poll significant it's Let's see how to pack. Okay so why are they agitated. Well they're agitated because Biden's only up by a couple of points over trump in these six states let's see sanders was up a little bit and and Warren was down so I think there was agitation for two reasons. One Biden up wasn't wasn't by as much as as people thought. Warren was down and three and this is the bigger point I think is a lot of people think. Stop looking at and thinking thinking about the election in that way stopped takes basically boiling the entire election down to six states full of larger shares of white working class voters because that's it's not what. The electorate is about an implicit in even doing the poll among some Democrats is the idea that that or they would argue that the Times poll kind of has its thumb on the scale in terms of this larger argument about whether the Democratic Party needs to quote unquote moderate to go for the kinds of voters in those six states or go go for.
"one years" Discussed on Today, Explained
"The first half of this show talking about the Democrats and and where they stand right now one year away from the election and I just wonder where does Donald Trump stand right now with the American people what are is approval ratings what's extraordinary is Donald trump stands exactly where he stood more or less for the entire time of his presidency we've never had a president in the post World War Two period who's been an as stable and as non volatile in approval ratings his lowest I think is around thirty seven is high around forty four forty five so you know he's in the upper range but he's been there for quite a while and I think the big note there's we've had a lot of stories happening recently right in Ukraine impeachment and Bughdadi and even as US filter into the ratings nothing's happening which is to say people have decided if they like Donald trump or not and nothing that they are learning earning or have learned over the past couple years seems to have changed that underlying structure of opinion in any real way I can imagine the people who support Donald Trump our unwavering because things like Moller probe and Ukraine and send her back and even you know good people on both sides don't really get in the way of love his appointing Supreme Court justices which he's done or tax cuts for the rich which is done but what about other stuff like the wall I mean he hasn't accomplished that in over two years of his presidency does that affect him in some way pulling is always hard to get to the heart of what people people really think ride we only have this number and it is an imperfect summation of people's use but I suspect that on something like the wall the way Donald Trump's supporters understand that is not the Donald Trump is built the wall but that the lame stream media the failing New York Times the do nothing Democrats have stopped Donald well trump from building the wall mayor he is out there fighting on their behalf trying to get the wall built and he's at war with deep state and the swamp and everyone else I mean donald trump typically does not get blamed for a lot of what he does it's why I think one of the few things that did appear to hurt him was the House Republican healthcare bill because that was something we're Donald Trump during the campaign at promised he would not cut medicaid he promised he would give everyone better health insurance and then he signed onto this bill he signed on he supported this bill written by Paul Ryan that would've taken health insurance away from tens of millions the people that would not have been better for people that would not have predicted preexisting conditions it would cut cut medicaid very dramatically so that was a moment where the ability to say Donald Trump is being stopped by others and that is why he is not doing what he promised evaporated and you had to say Oh Donald Trump is actually betraying his promise and that seemed to have an effect it's why when you talk to Democrats they want to run against donald trump's embrace of more traditional Republican policies on healthcare and the economy and tax cuts and other things they don't want to run against the craziness of the trump show the tweets the eccentric behavior because to them the people who don't like him for those resort you don't like him I'm the place where you can find new allies new votes are on the people who there's a dissonance between what they wanted Donald trump to do and what he has been doing and it's donald trump's embrace of the traditional traditional conservative agenda that you can begin to open up that wedge is it unusual for president have such steady approval ratings or did Obama have a thirty forty percent margin that he just could never lose no matter what he did it is unusual and there couple of reasons is unusual so one is that Obama for instance had much bigger swings round his early honeymoon period rate very high approval ratings which Donald Trump never had and there are some bigger swings around things like killing Osama bin Laden but it is also true that most of the time Obama was in a fairly narrow band so if you look at the course of his presidency you would see a larger potential variation variation but if you looked at any given month you would not see a huge difference from where Donald Trump is Obama was somewhat more popular than trump and somewhat more popular in trump amidst a much worse economy which which suggests to me that trump is underperforming potential approval ratings quite dramatically thing I'd say about Donald Trump's approval ratings in the big picture is that he is in a condition right now where he should be quite strong he has a pretty good economy unemployment is quite low historically we have had steady job job growth we've had steady GDP growth even in las year to reasonable wage growth so that plus the fact that we are not currently embroiled in a huge new war or I think one of the good things I will say about Donald Trump did not take the advice of any of his administration and try to go to war with Iran you could imagine a precedent in these conditions fifty five percent not seventy percent given the structure partisan politician but fifty five the fact that he's at forty two speaks to the effect that his own unusual behavior his tweeting his fights his eccentricities his recklessness it speaks to the fact that he's not tough law that that has imposed a cost penalty on his approval ratings and the thing I was thinking about Donald Trump is that he did not win in two thousand sixteen by much he did not win the popular vote at all and even in Pennsylvania you would have had to change about forty thousand votes for Donald Trump to lose two and so it was such a close election and the demographic trends are sufficiently in Democrats favor that trump to get reelected into twenty twenty he doesn't need to match his performance in two thousand sixteen he needs to do better than it and there's no evidence in his polling that he has expanded his base a thing I tend to think about from time to time people exist in this country who voted for Barack Obama and then several years later voted for Donald Trump which I guess often amazes people outside of this country how do the Democrats win those particular voters back so there's a huge amount of research now and attention on this quite small percentage of voters who switched from Obama to trump and particularly in mid west states my read of that research overall suggests that in general these were voters who were reasonably high and what social scientists racial resentment and you might say yeah well how could they elect Barack Obama then and the answer is that feeling away about a group of people doesn't always Dr Phil about one person Obama did a lot of work to calm white anxieties to sort of appear people as somebody who was operating outside of some traditional enmities you could kind of feel like you're getting past some of that when Hillary Clinton ran a much more explicit elicit campaign arguing in favor of black lives matter talking about systematic racism systemic racism on the campaign trail those voters who are higher earn racial resentment and have more intensely negative views about immigration whenever Donald Trump I do not know how winnable they are if you talk to Bernie any sanders or no Elizabeth Warren what they will tell you is that those voters were upset by Washington support for free trade deals they weren't helped enough by democratic policies over the past ten years and a more unvarnished for economic populism will win them back you talk to Joe Biden but he won't tell you but I think what is believed to be true there is uncle Joe so is a sort of an older white guy comforting figure these folks believe he's on their side like maybe move over to him I think that it is a mistake for Democrats to think about this all all in terms of winning the last war they'll probably get some of these people back and by running a different campaign and running more popular candidate than Hillary Clinton they can get some of them back but they also would have won on the election if African American turnout had been at the levels it was under Barack Obama that's probably very hard to reconstitute but it's not necessarily impossible parties really come back from a defeat and the way you expect them to so after two thousand and four there was this huge belief that Democrats had lost white evangelical heartland voters and you know maybe they'd become to open to gay marriage or they were too socially liberal and you know John Kerry was in a feet you know french-speaking windsurfing etcetera etcetera and there's this whole discourse party about becoming more culturally conservative and economically populist and then who actually wins it's an African American guy with with the Middle Name Hussein from Chicago right like that was not anywhere in the theory but that's what they did so I suspect that if Democrats win in twenty twenty it will not be because they managed to reverse engineer Donald Trump's victory but they nominated a candidate who in being themselves and exciting interesting interesting unique political force created their own political dynamics donald trump had to respond to and was not quite able to and what do you think that dynamics should be I don't know I I think what's really important is that Democrats do not just run anti-trump I think that the Democrats need to have a vision and a theory and an an inspirational charge of their own and if they don't have that that creates a lot of space for trump to dominate the conversation I think the biggest mistake Democrats could make would be need to be constantly reactive to whatever grenade donald trump is logged on twitter that morning I mean if you look in two thousand eight I would not say that what Barack Obama ran non was an extraordinarily ambitious policy gender imbalance in the way the presidential engines earned bishops but he himself represented something in politics at excited people he ran on a theory of how politics could be how could look how we could relate to each other how we could fix it and that generated a momentum that really reshaped shaped American Politics for eight years and I think that what Democrats are going to need to do is to not just sit around clapping back donald trump but but have something that in in its ambition in its intensity in its controversy sets the conversation on their terms the one of the only times Donald Trump is actually reactive democrats is when he is arguing against their socialism one of the Times he response and so the ways in which I think particularly Warren Sanders are able to use big ambitious policies to set the agenda such it it's at least a conversation happening on terms I think that's powerful I think some of the other candidates are able to do it in some other ways sometimes but certainly they're the two who've been able to set the terms of democratic debate debate and I think as a kind of Meta level of the campaign being able to set the terms of the debate is a genuinely important qualification for them crowd and Twenty Twenty.

"Give you the real exchange rate for a laughably low fee which makes them Bird than a bank or paypal transfer wise also offers a debit mastercard. That always gives you the real rate when you spend overseas transfer wise is your Swiss army knife for due to the question about trust I think it's one of the most foundational things for the company I take it seriously listen to the it back tried to understand feel there's something which cost a breaking of trust and see what we can do to improve Google CEO soon dr ice says the company has been struggling with maintaining the trust of its employees this is how he described the problem in leaked audio published by The Washington Post last week genuinely struggling with some issues transparency at scale how do it especially at a time when everything we do is doesn't stay within the walls those comments come at an interest in time on November I it will have been exactly one year since the google walkout a protest against Google leadership that had a reported twenty thousand employees walking off the job in offices around the world I'm Jim Ross Today on resets we're looking at the impact the Google walkout one year later Google time's up on sexual harassment Taylor I've been at Google for seven years I've had both the sexual harassment and sexual discrimination case I've blocked out the memories of it but I don't think anybody not anymore I decided to coordinate this stuff and gathering as one of the many Google sites that are walking day it was huge a big deal I was there and you could feel this energy that I had never seen before in the tech industry looking out in support of they've been harassed anywhere in energy of sort of anger and for Russian and a real rising of worker descent Ghaffari is a reporter for recode you covered the walkout from Google's headquarters in mountain view a year ago I asked her to explain how this all started the google walkout was about really the abuse of power our sexual harassment in the tech industry particularly at Google where at the time and had recently come out that there was a pattern of sexual misconduct at the company and that high-powered managers and executives were getting protected and in some cases paid out to leave after there had been credit bowl claims launched against them for sexually harassing using their employees and worthies people people who were high up in the company yeah so the host damning claim was probably about Andy Rubin he's the so called founder of the android and it was very very important person at the company he was accused of coercing and employees into performing oral sex the company actually found that claim to be notable launch an investigation but they kept quiet about that and pushed Rubanov but thank him publicly on his way out the door and paid him nine be million dollars in an exit package so when the New York Times revealed the circumstances around Ruben's exit and the massive payout people were pissed and you have twenty thousand employees walking out of work I google offices around the world just to put this in respective twenty thousand employees walking out on the job is that a lot I mean that's huge Google's total employment is I think around one hundred thousand so twenty out of one hundred thousand I mean that is huge for any workforce but especially in tech where historically workers do not speak out against management because overall the perception is that tech workers historically are treated well engineers get all these perks especially at Google you know there's AH child care on premises or is free lunch there's amazing healthcare in time off that's that's the perception of working at a top tech company like Google so yeah workers don't usually walk to work so the group will walk out was about sexual harassment at the company that's what it was about yes at its core it was about sexual harassment but also that other issues like worker pay diversity having an employee voice on important projects all these things that have bubbled up and erupted at the time of the Walker so there were organizers who sort of made this google walkout happen what were their demands most of the demands focused on making sure something like the Ruben situation did not happen again so that means giving legal protections to employees who speak out against things like sexual harassment and that means taking out these houses that were in their contracts that for some not to take their claims to court if they had an issue but instead settle it privately and confidentially so that to me and was actually met that was probably the biggest direct kind of success of the Google walkout in terms of policy changes but there were other deeper structural demands that are very much inch still being worked out Google and those have to do with you know having an an employee representation on the board of directors those you have to do with gender and diversity and pay equity which is not just a problem at Google but the entire tech industry and remember that only thirty three son of employees at Google where women last year and that number drops to about twenty five percent for leadership and technical positions so it's been a year since the walkout do you think it was effective I think the Google walk it was successful in cracking open deeper tensions not just a google but the entire tech industry and many of the man's have not been Matt many people are still actively pushing for those kinds of demands to be met what happened to the people who initiated the walkout so Meredith Whitaker and clear stapleton the organizers they publicly came out and months after the walk outside hey we feel that management actually punishing us for our political activists so you saw Clare say that two months after the walkout she was told she would be demoted and lose half of her direct reports and clear was a marketing manager at Youtube after she reported the HR and she said Hey feel like I'm being retired against they reversed emotion but she said that her managers started to ignore her gave her work to other people and she was told to go on medical leave even though she wasn't sick meredith who was an a researcher who led Google's open research she said she was told her role would be changed dramatically and to stop her notable research on Ai Ethics at the AI now institute a research center butte are there any more examples like this of retaliation Google yeah I mean in my reporting I talked to Google employees all the time who face issues oftentimes it's less well-known employees and maybe less scandalous circumstances but these are people who say they've been subjected to things like everyday harassment on the job having a manager who frequently makes inappropriate comments based on someone's gender or sexuality or race and they're forced to kind of put up with it they say because is when they hear comments like you're not getting promoted because you're such an emotional woman and they report something like that they say they're quietly pushed down the corporate ladder all the people who made those comments are kept in place or pushed up so in your mind is the significance of the Google walkout sort of a moment where employees finally felt comfortable bull calling this behavior outright this retaliation and the higher ups that Google ignoring retaliation is that what it is absolutely and Anna comes in the wake of the me two times up movement and you're seeing people say hey I'm not GonNa let this report about my manager sexually harassing me sit in a competent the HR file for the rest of my life. I'M GONNA come out with US and take a big risk potentially to my employment to my social standing with managers and say that it's not okay.
