"Will you do that for all of us, Mike? Well, good. Good. Still has his PS 80 fitting upl shirt, Mike. They disappeared. Anyway, Let's go to Ray, who's calling from New Jersey. Welcome to doubIe, ABC, right, Ray. Hey, Curtis. Big fan, eh? So let's get this straight. The Corona virus was deliberately set from China Communist China. Fine is in China's back pocket. The Senate will be Chuck E. Cheese will be majority leader. This this country is going to get beat up from all in internally externally. Where do you see this country being in in in in a year. Alright, Assuming that let's say that's how the cards a shuffle that Atlantic City. Uh, remember in two years you'll have a midterm elections. The house will go Republican in the Senate will go Republicans, so there'll be a balance of power. Uh, remember, we have been through worse times. I know. Everyone thinks this is the absolute worst times. I hear this every four years. Whichever side loss. It's never been worse than this. Remember, Democrats was saying, Oh, my God, It's so bad with Donald Trump. It's the worst it's ever been. Well, because Donald Trump was president. We ended up With Joe Biden. Do you think Joe Biden would have become president if any other Republican had been in fact the nominee of the department of the Republican Party and had beaten Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016? The interest? No. It's the set of circumstances that created the elevation of Joe Biden again his election and probably which will bring back a Republican in 2024, But I don't think it's going to be Donald Trump. I think it's gonna be a lot of the young Huckleberry said it gonna be looking at knock him off. Of his throne. 1 808 for a W A. B. C. Let's go today was calling from Long Beach your turn to be heard here, Dave. Hey, Curtis. How you two things? Way boss Stephen yesterday if you read into it, that could just mean that there's just not enough states yet that he sees being overturned to affect the election. But even if the season is fraud, toe overturn Pennsylvania. That's not enough to affect the election. So that's one thing. Secondly, Trump ran against Hillary. If Hillary one off course by then wouldn't be with have been elected because she would be running again. Thank you. Very good. Short, sweet to the point. Let's go to Cao's calling from Staten Island. Welcome to WBC Salvator. He gets it that hopelessly He's having an argument. You see exiles out, Calm down, Calm down. Don't want don't want there to be heard. Yeah, I don't want there to be a 911 call that talking to adult. Listen, here's the situation of reference to bar bar. Is president his own nest. It doesn't want to come out to be super Pro trump. Otherwise, he won't be able to sell his book. And Curtis is a bite of a bone to pick with you. I've know you since February, 1979. I was with you back to back early days. The Guardian Angels of American Marines. You made a comment about a week and a half ago. You said that 45% of the American veterans and overseas votes voted for bison. I don't think that's true because of American veterans. We overwhelmingly voted for Trump in 2016 and 2017. Trump kept us out of war. He's done more to help American veterans in the list. 3.5 years in the last president last 30 so I can I can I can support for better time. Things are getting better. I'm not going to get any better. Run down. Calm down south. So I'm trying to avoid 911 coming there Because of that argument you had before you came on the air. Let me explain. I never said that a 45% of those serving overseas or domestically had voted for Joe Biden for president. You might have been somebody else. I don't even know what the figures are. But you're right. Trump has kept us out of war. That's one of the good things I liked about. Donald Trump is that unlike Bush 43 you got us into a war that was still involved with in Iraq still looking for weapons of mass destruction. Boy, Hillary and Obama, who got us involved in that mess in Libya, that we should never never have been toying with. What a disaster. It is there in North Africa now. He didn't get us in any warrants. He just helped really weaken. Isis. Well, you remember Barack Obama called the JV. But then again, Barack Obama called them as 13 the JV when he wasn't dealing with them. And it did take a combination of the man who was here yesterday with John Catsimatidis and the four o'clock our owner and operator Congressman Peter King. Yes, Jeff Beauregard sessions and the president who traveled there to the federal courthouse. Who's that? By my galoot? Somehow Sally's getting through you need. You need to calm him down. Let's give him some Prozac there. He was yelling at somebody there. What did he say? That was that he was yelling out of that started the call. So I don't know. He thinks I'm surprised the NYPD isn't at his doorstep on a domestic situation. But anyway and the president did help Neuter M s 13 and 18 street, especially out in Long Island and other Poile it parts of the northeast sector where they became very, very powerful. But I don't know with Sal got that. I never had a came up with that stat. I actually don't know They are the last ballots that are always counted in any any any elect election cycle, the overseas ballots the ballots from those serving stateside. Are always the last paper ballots to be counted is a mail in ballots. There's the absentee ballots. There's a provision every ballot. Sometimes you're forced to fill out when you go to your polling location, and they can't find you in the book of the computer, so they give you a provisional ballot, And then there were other military ballots. Anyway, I'm surprised Nobody brought up the case. Have a president who got sacked in a very close election. That, in fact was called The Revolution of 1800 didn't attend the inauguration of the guy who barely beat him. That's why he didn't even bother showing up. So I hear all these although it's never been done before America leads others follow or we will be a disgrace in the eyes of the world, huh? Let me educate you about what happened in 1800, which was the first peaceful transfer of power from president to president and guess what the president elect got inaugurated and the president who had preceded him. Did. The bird weighed.

"Now. Let's talk about five point. Five point is the incentive layer that kind of brings it all together. What happens another would say. I am someone who wants to retrieve some content that i know is somewhere out there so basically what would happen. Whom would i pay. Who's incentivized by. What's what are the economics going on. Here yeah so basically you're saying hey like let's walk through kind of the the life cycle of data and kind of like follow it and so on Yeah so maybe. That's our with a three. So i that think about adding capacity to the network than adding storage. So you know a client hiring hiring a minor to its data and then the third is a another client retreating. Something that exists there so the first case A minor that has sort of provide. And i walked up to the network and up pledges. Certain amount of sectors and a pledge is a commitment to the network that you're going to store a certain amount of addison capacity and you're going to produce some proofs for that capacity and you also have to of because this is a relief to consumers. You have to have something at stake here. You have to discern conditions in which the might eat. Certain kinds of you could play That includes kind of eighty positive. A falcon A minor add smart of the networks some actual capacity than gets a random seed from the network to start Some data and kind of to produce a kind seal. What is right now. An empty sectors know capacity. And this is a kind of a sector today thirty two gigabytes and then there'll be kinda size actress in the feature on in what they might or might walk in with satire by or something like that you're by terabyte into you know thirty two gigabytes segments Any now Seal all of these segments in the ceiling processing in a reputation that you actually have that capacity to provide the network and the minor you have now signed up with an hour to for the this capacity in addition to monica sets a an asking price which is how much they're still is going to go for when clients are going to hire less storage What go right now. The sort of a global ask bryce on minor mostly use cases. Miners have one price in that set. In the future winters debate we want to have a flexible and fluid ask model where minus can have many different prices for different tiers Looking to stuff But for now sort of a very simple one price for all the storage so that point kind of the minor has committed to to of this and now other parties can can view it so now along comes a user client and says okay great like i want to store this data. And so the data they can just added with. There's different kinds of tools. So that can i get a hash or they can add with a five win with the latest client which is kind of look at the one of the main pump implementation's or a bunch of other tools. That that speak these protocols like exile arrogate or slate which is consumer lincoln application. There's a bunch of different kinds of things and that was the You can now hire. You can kind of create a deal to hire minor to back this backpack this data and that deal is of a relationship between a client and it client in a single minor and a single piece of data just kind of like the unit of of agreement as a. You probably want to do this with multiple minors because he want to replicate your data with multiple different parties and and so you now sound good data over to find these miners in the network by you. This number of ways you can either a numerate them from the blockchain you can find them in a buck explorer this much tools that can show you what miners what prices they have and so you select which minor you want and you could be maybe presented but you might also take into account other important details about the minor so for example they're kind of reliability. There's a different kind of schedules features about the minor that tracked by the blockchain and can score ran others. There's no emerging score the everybody's using yet but you could put these kind of like rating style numbers from the kind of like a very simple way of selecting minors klein right now. Uses a minor and sensor data over to the source provider one source brighter receives that they the deal is completed and the minor. Alicia the deal into the network. There's a bunch of operations that happened underneath a hood in order to like actually making that make that work this in preparation of the data that has to happen in order to make it easier to prove on and so on and definitely a different sizes of the data really matter writes a few set sending a little. Bit of the nsa. A few megabytes few kilobytes megabytes. That's going to be the kind of distribution very different than if you're sending gigabytes or terabytes and so for example in the smaller scales that just a very simple protocol where right away i can just over and make the deal and whatnot user Completely hidden from you. You know the client and the mine are doing this. This software is doing this under hud users themselves. Don't have to be exposed to all of this going on but it's kind of like a like a bitcoin. Transaction in theorem transaction. There's a lot going on happening under the hood where transaction to move to a certain place get validated execute on.

The COVIDSafe app is back. Will it work better this time?

"I'm health reported taken tyler. An opposition and journalist alter norman swan. It's wednesday the second of december and with us. Today we have a special guest Technology reporter james patil. Welcome hello sorry. Jane spec in april we had high hopes for the covid safe at that. It was going to be kind of the answer to contact tracing in australia. And it was rolled out and it didn't really land the way. At least the government wanted to but they releasing type two point are the wake can give an update on what happened before. And what the new app. The new version of the app is promising. Australia's sunscreen right. That was the phrase back in april. I think it was twenty eight that it launched and at the time we were told it was the key to us being able to reopen and to be on being able to live our lives. Covid safe uses bluetooth signals to exchange little packets of data with other phones around you using that app as well. Yeah it didn't land so so well. There were early concerns around the app. Not working so on on iphone not working so well when the when it was in the background or the screen was locked. There were privacy issues as well and although there was strong downloads in the in the first few that's sort of type it off. Seven months later were now download downloads. Which is well below that forty percent target. That scott morrison sit back in april. How effective has it been even with all those problems. Has it detected any cases where we recently heard that there were seventeen. People not identified by manual contact. Tracing that covered saif was able to identify. We heard that in senate estimates just a little while ago as to how effective it's been it's actually quite hard to tell because we have very little data we don't know how many active user so that seven million donald's figure it's actually quite worthless because it could include a whole bunch of people who downloaded it and then deleted it or who don't have it actually running actively on their phone. Can we talk about the updated version. Then what what's the tech community's take on it now if people have got the app or they want to download the app is the new version going to address the concerns that were expressed at the beginning. I was speaking with the tech community recently Shortly after the announcement of the died and there was a mixture of surprise and despair. I think many of them had been working very hard to provide bug fixes into point up problems with the app and the very experienced senior members of the community and they heard about the update through a news article. So those a sense that i tried so hard to help out and then just being sidelined. It's true that they had been the duty had asked for feedback when they announced it. But you know the overwhelming response from the tech community was if we had been asked we would have said. Don't go with the system. Go with the apple. Google exposure notification framework. Which is also a bluetooth technology system but has been developed specifically by apple and google four contact tracing on on phones that run the the operating systems and many other countries are using it now and that's important for two reasons. I suppose that there's more proof that it is more sort of testing of how it works but also if there is a global standard means that can be international contact tracing and the great promise of that say you can reopen borders international borders earlier. And so have you got any fix on the current changes whether they'll make it more usable and more people will find it useful. The chinese are about how the phones actually exchanged bluetooth signals. So it's a small part of the overall game. The has taken a protocol code herald from third party which is called vm. Ware means that the phones according to the more efficient or they they're bitter Exchanging signals so before you know it didn't work so well on iphones didn't works so well knows locked. The saying those problems been solved. They've found work arounds and so on. There's a big caveat to that. Which is that in the past. Those kinds of also been made but it's light been found out that there are problems and that the work arounds aren't perfect. You know much earlier. Version of harold with something that the us and the uk. We're looking at using for their smartphone contact. Tracing but back in june. I decided against that and i went with the apple. Google i so no other country in the world is using the herald system so any idea toll. Why they didn't. What's the downside of the apple. Google system privacy. What what's the complaint. That's interesting because i actually had an email from the government media liaison after my article went out and he reaffirmed. That strategy has no intention of using the the apple approach. He argued that the problem with that approach is it. It only notifies the person if they've been exposed doesn't notify notify central health authorities. So you know. There's nothing to guarantee that the person's actually going to go and get tested

Bipartisan group of senators announces $908 billion stimulus plan, aiming to break logjam

"On. Roy joins us with the latest. And maybe her rendition of a christmas carol. I don't know you know it's up to you. I do love the christmas season. Joe and what democrats are doing right now is trying to make the christmas season a little bit more mary. For unemployed workers there is interest on both sides of the aisle in breaking this logjam on capitol hill surrounding neta virus. Relief package and today more than thirty democrats are getting behind a new push to extend expiring unemployment benefits for twelve million workers before they go away at the end of the year. Virginia senator mark warner is leading this effort with a letter to the leadership of both parties. That says letting these payments lapsed during the holiday season would be cruel and that it would hit the services sector and the art especially hard. The letter says these workers are all facing job loss. It has nothing to do with their skills abilities or performance now there have been some preliminary conversations in the senate on bipartisan measures. That might be able to pass alongside the government funding bill next week and so this letter is just one indication. Democrats appear to be coalescing around the problem of what they're calling the benefits cliff also today senators ron wyden and sherrod brown the top democrats on the finance and banking committees as well as colorado senator michael bennet. They're unveiling bill that would extend these expiring provisions and it would also reinstate that six hundred dollars in enhanced unemployment benefits that has been more controversial and has been one of the sticking points in these broader negotiations surprise.

After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'

"Trump on his way out of office. Populist leaders in Eastern Europe have lost a powerful ally as NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, the president's election loss threatens to isolate those leaders even more. On the day after the U. S election, millions of votes in key swing states were still being counted. And there wasn't a clear winner yet. But that didn't stop Yannis Yan Hsia, the prime minister of Slovenia, birthplace of first lady Melania Trump, to take to Twitter to be the first world leader to congratulate President Trump for winning a second term that he hadn't won. After the election was called for Biden. Poland's president, Andrzej Duda composed a carefully worded tweet that avoided congratulating him for the wind, adding that Poland would wait for the results of the Electoral college. Eastern Europe's populist strongman leaders are having a hard time accepting Trump has lost. I'm not so sure it's a big loss for the populations. I think it's a big loss for the individual leaders. Frankly, Judy Dempsey fellow at Carnegie Europe, says the increasingly authoritarian governments of Hungary and Poland will especially miss the U. S president, who seemed to share their world view. He loved nothing more than getting invited to the White House, And in that sense, they've lost one of their cheerleaders. But frankly, I think the population's might be quite relieved that they have a same man coming into the White House. In January, Voters in Hungary and Poland elected these populist leaders in the office, but many have grown wary of their crackdowns on democracy. So has the European Union. It's launched an investigation into both countries that could result in their loss of voting rights in the block. The post government bet on the wrong horse. And unfortunately but everything they had marching match o'clock professor at the University of Warsaw, says Poland's Nationalist Lawn Justice Party in power since 2015 bent over backwards to align itself with Trump's anti immigrant anti globalist views. Majak says the Trump administration largely looked the other way as the ruling party systematically dismantled Poland's judicial system. And crack down on its free press. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Poles spurred by leaders who came to tighten restrictions on abortion. Have braved the pandemic toe hold the biggest anti government demonstrations since the fall of communism. Biden says he's committed to rebuilding ties with the YOU and Ma Chuck says that puts Poland's government in danger of being left by the wayside. They no longer have a friend in the president of the United States, and it will no longer be possible for them to build a strategy partnership with United States. With the politics they have in Poland, so I think it is going to be a huge problem for them, not Jack says Poland is left with only two potential friends in the region, The UK, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson has jettisoned his country from the EU and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has consolidated power in himself and his Nationalist Party. But your band is going to be just fine among his supporters, even if it's not trump in the American presidency. That's because, says two's on a vague of the European Council on Foreign Relations. Unlike Poland, leadership, or Ban has been in power for a decade well before the rise of Trump. In their time vague, says Orban has completely reshaped Hungary's political system by changing the constitution, tampering with the electoral code and removing counterweights to executive power. Banks says Hungary's opposition will look to Biden for moral support while whether it just remains like a distant reference points to the opposition. That okay, we can Look at the Westin See that change is possible. Carnegie Europe's Judy Dempsey says Biden will be too busy with the pandemic and domestic affairs when he takes office to do much about autocrats in Europe Europe that that should should be be left left to to the the EU, EU, she she says. says. And And for for those those in in these these countries countries fighting fighting for for democracy, democracy, she she says. says. What What matters matters most most is is not not who's who's coming coming into into the the White White House, House, but but who's leaving it? Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin

Congress deadlocked on stimulus as lame duck begins

"News Senate Minority leader, Chuck Schumer called on Republicans to join his party and passing another bipartisan coronavirus relief bill, saying Democrats were able to negotiate with the Trump administration. But not with Senate Republicans. At the start of this crisis, Democrats came together in a flurry of negotiations. I was thickly involved in them with Secretary Mnuchin. To pass a bill that truly met the moment. Now we're about to reach a new, more difficult stage of the crisis. We need to renew that spirit that urgency that bipartisanship. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called for another coronavirus stimulus package amid surging cases while blaming Democrats accusing them of stonewalling, with the coronavirus surging from coast to coast. American people have gone entirely entirely without any additional aid, even the least controversial most bipartisan programs. Because the Democrats say no Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says that the pace of improvement in the economy has moderated in recent months with future prospects remaining in his words extraordinarily uncertain. In remarks released by the Fed on Monday, Powell said that the increase in new covert 19 cases both in the U. S and abroad was concerning and could prove challenging for the next

Moderna to seek FDA emergency authorization for COVID-19 vaccine

Moderna to seek FDA emergency authorization for COVID-19 vaccine

"We're hurtling toward. What may well be a horrible and deadly holiday season as cova cases numbers and hospitalizations. Continue to reach alarming highs over ninety thousand. People are currently hospitalized in the us according to the cova tracking project that's compared to the previous high of about sixty thousand in the spring and summer. So more by half just terrifying. We're also moving quickly towards something that looks like hope to vaccines yesterday. Dern submitted its vaccine for fda authorization aaron. What's the latest on that. Well akilah thanks to the incredible work of scientists and researchers. We've now got to vaccines that. Could start to be distributed to americans within days or weeks maderna's mentioned and pfizer which submitted a couple of weeks ago. As soon as the fda reviews and approves either one for emergency use people can start lining up to get poked. Yeah i am also in line to get poked but as you've been talking about on the show with this first round vaccines were not going to have enough for everybody all at once and we don't have one official plan for who gets to be at the front of the line. That's why the cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices or ac ip is having an emergency meeting today hammer out some guidelines for states on who gets there. Kobe shot i. Yeah so what do we know about their thinking. Well much to the chagrin of the kardashians in everybody who would love to feel just a little more normal by having a massless dance party on a private island. The vaccine will not be distributed based on how many instagram followers. You have or even whether your father invented the toaster strudel I'm really bummed. I that's my dad. I know. I know grudging wieners. The has already decided that the first people in line should be healthcare workers and people who live in long term care facilities like nursing homes according to dr kathleen dueling medical officer at the cdc staff and residents at these facilities have accounted for almost forty percent of all deaths from covid nineteen even though there are less than one percent of the total us population if you add healthcare workers and people who live and work at long term care facilities. That's about twenty four million people even with fda approval and firing on all cylinders. There will only be about forty million vaccine doses available by the end of this godforsaken year and both cohen. Vaccines require two shots. Which means that those forty million doses will be barely enough to meet the needs of the very neediest in this group. Yeah and then. It starts to get a little bit trickier when you get into the other. Essential workers and people with high risk medical conditions. Or you know older people right. So according to the cdc there about eighty seven million essential workers one hundred million high risk adults and fifty three million people sixty five years of age or older. And of course there's some overlap between these categories. These are the people that would be prioritized next but as you can see there are a lot of them if all goes well you could see fifty million more doses ready to go in january another sixty million in february or march doing math divided by to carry the one that means about seventy five million people could be vaccinated against covid nineteen by the end of the first quarter of twenty twenty one which means the more people who are at an elevated risk from covid. Then there will be vaccines and there will not be enough vaccines to reach herd immunity at first and it's going to be a while before we get there and so this is just guidance. According to current lame duck secretary of health and human services. Alex as our love connick guy. Lame duck state governments will ultimately determine how the vaccine will be distributed. But who knows if that assertion will hold after biden takes office on january twentieth knows. Well it's a little bit of an elephant in the room. Here you know. America has a long history of ignoring the needs of and in some cases actively hurting the health of marginalized groups like indigenous americans living on reservations. Black people hello Non native english speakers people experiencing homelessness and the mentally ill among other groups. So how can we be sure that the cova vaccine will just pass them over. That's a really important question akilah. I'm sure there are already rich and powerful people trying to figure out how to skip the line. There's nothing more american than that but the acp seems determined to make sure americans have faith in the fairness of this process. All of their meetings are live streamed. So if you're looking for something to do today you can go ahead and livestream. The meeting in all the votes are public. The fda has also having meetings on vaccines on december tenth and seventeenth. This whole process depends on the public trusting the vaccine enough to let somebody shoot two doses of it into their arms and it seems like so far at least the folks in charge are taking that responsibility seriously and all this is happening with derna advisor will still be gathering more data and monitoring for adverse effects as the first groups of people get vaccinated and then the companies will have to go through the normal. Fda approval process as well. This first round of approval is a fast track process. So getting back to normal isn't site kind of if you squint. It's not that far. It's right there it's kind of kind of. Let's put it this way between now and when everybody who needs to be vaccinated is vaccinated. You'll definitely have time to relearn that foreign language tried to learn in high school and if mostly forgotten about by now

Sober Holiday Survival

"Welcome to recovery. Happy hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stop drinking. I'm your host tricia and in my stocking this year. I hope santa brings me the limited edition. David bowie barbie doll that sold out last year. Despite my attempts to tell santa to preorder it from two different game stop locations just in case. Thank you for joining me well. Happy december or folks. We are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season. And i believe you can absolutely do this without drinking last week. We talked about tips for staying alcohol-free this holiday season and today i'm going to complete the rest of that list so go back and listen to last week's episode if you haven't already come back and join me when you're done. Are you back okay. today. I'm going to start off with this alcohol-free tip focus on the event you're celebrating. Yup parties are usually meant to celebrate a thing. You know an event a person whatever beyond our own addiction or gray area drinking problem whatever you wanna call it. It's also are usually our garbage culture that turns drinking into the focus of an event so for a holiday party. Think about what you're celebrating. That's jesus or hanukkah or just getting together with your family. Mix celebrating that thing your goal. Maybe you've got a relative in town who you normally don't get to see. Take some time to celebrate that you know catch up with them. Maybe it's getting to hold a new baby or play with your nieces and nephews. You can use these opportunities without alcohol to really be present and those moments and appreciate everything that's memorable and real about them. I always say the same thing about birthdays and weddings. The event is to celebrate a person doing something really special so make them what. You're celebrating because it's not all about us and getting drunk last week. I asked everyone to write a list of things. We like about the holidays and use that list as a resource and celebrate those things so find things to get excited about. It can be whatever you want. Bring ingredients to make a really cool any drink with like twelve different components get dressed up where high heels that you don't have to worry about falling off of bring a game like look for things to make a party fund because parties are supposed to be just that fun a great way to stay busy and distract yourself if you need. It is to help the hostess or the host or the person who's having the party go cleanup napkins offer to wash plates offer to help i guarantee you that. If you're listening to this podcast then you have absolutely been a party hosts worst nightmare at point in your life so use this as an opportunity to give back and level out your car a little bit. Here's a simple one. do not i repeat. Do not offer to be the designated driver. Especially if it's a party that might go late if you're feeling freaked out and you need to bail. Then you don't need a reason to stay put. You should always have an exit plan. You know and being someone's dd cancels that out entirely the couple of times that i've offered to do this. I ended up staying at a party way too late when i really just needed to go home. It's twenty twenty. We have uber and left for a reason so let people use it. You know a big part of getting through the holidays without alcohol is learning how to deal with our most triggering loved ones and having the tools not to drink over it boundaries are really big deal boundaries are a big deal for example if you know that someone at the gathering relentlessly pushes shots on you. Then no you're boundary ahead of time if that person offers me a shot. I'm going to say xyz if they keep offering me shots. I'm going to make my exit. You know you create a boundary beforehand. And if someone crosses the line you already know what to do to stay healthy and sober. You know it's just about having a plan had time. Another example is if you have a typical pattern. That's a reason behind your drinking like if communicating with your parents tends to be tents and. Let's say they're always saying something passive aggressive and you've never spoken up about it but instead you've always pushed it down and drink over it. Well this is the time to find a boundary not saying that you need to confront them during christmas and try to resolve like twenty five years of old trauma but you can say something like i need to go get some fresh air. I'm gonna go for a quick walk around the block. That's a boundary. You know when you decided not to engage in an activity that triggers you to drink or maybe it's one of those all day christmas parties that starts at eleven. Am and goes until midnight where everyone's been drinking for like thirteen straight hours. Maybe you've always stuck around because you thought that that was expected of you and you never had the words to speak up this year. Consider telling everyone beforehand that you've made plans for the second half of the day and you have to leave at three o'clock maybe your pet sitting any need to go home and feed the dog. It's up process of planning ahead and saying if this thing happens then i will choose to do this thing because it will keep me from drinking.

Rita Ora sorry for birthday party that broke lockdown rules

"Now for some breaking news. Was she wary. Where was she seen she posted. Why on instagram. Who clean gone too long pause. What's rita ora up to. Who is this woman. We've never done this before we've never opened with what's read or up switching the order of the show were doing top down instead of bottom up. No we're doing bottom up top down bottom up and as we've said a few times in the past month or so rita's back to normal. You know the world isn't back to normal but reed is back to normal. Were sitting about it and yet now i'm like regret now like we jumped the thrill she was getting. We were thrilled. That she was getting The same number of headlines that she used to get however we didn't want her to get these types of headlines. Oh no this is very bad. So celebrated bad parts. Don't throw your own bad party. It's funny because when. When i saw that she was turning thirty i felt a little pang of leg odds tube-like turning thirty like this time like that's that's more rain could feel bad. Yeah for somebody who loves to party. She loves to party but she something happened here. And she's now in a lotta deep water. She's on the cover of the sun so when she turned thirty. This is what we thought on. Saturday night was at saturday night. That her she posted at thirtieth birthday video that her team made her. Were all these important people in her. Life mcwhirter happy birthday. Big jazz. host of it was just so many people i mean. It's dozens of pete. That's what we thought we were going to be talking about today. That's exactly what o our michael caine star studded video incredible. Here's who's in it. We identified a lot of these people even though it was very difficult and then and then this happened sunday night. We'll saturday night. saturday night. Rada had a birthday party that was like a fake up or they. So i think that a lot of people are doing this and this is not just celebrities. This is normal people. They're showing the world one thing on instagram than they're doing something entirely different offense to graham serena showed me beth so rita showed a thirtieth birthday party that was very small and cute in her apartment in her flat. There were balloons on the ceiling. She watched the video. You could tell there. Were a couple other voices in there. She showed this big spread of desserts and it was like look at this cake. I'm gonna eat it all by myself. Ha ha ha. So it's very like this is how i'm celebrating in these times. But she also had a thirtieth birthday party at a fancy restaurant in notting hill. Yeah and it looks like she just hossack rented the space definitely because there were people bringing in liquor and ice and so it looks like she just rented the space and had over thirty people. And it's apparently against the law to even have like more than one person outside of your household and there are more. Their lockdown laws are more We have some to here. But there's more and they're more will get you your name. They're more like actually taking this seriously but also like they should take rita ora doing this more seriously than anyone because again. She's a public figure. And this shit's going to get photographed. What i'm confused about. And i wonder what you think is like. Did somebody call the paparazzi. Like who how. What's the deal with that like. There were lots of photos or photos of the cops getting there and being like What's going on in here. You know like literally. They had photos of the whole shebang. People going in people going out. Rita going in rena going out and i just wonder like for rita we've already said like. Oh you know. She calls the paparazzi. But like you wouldn't call the paparazzi on your own like a legal birthday when you're doing something like flagrantly illegal but this dead. Maybe not someone whether it was someone at the restaurant a neighbor because it doesn't look like these people they're like they're actually sneaking and they're going back doors like it doesn't look like they wanted anywhere right there and also looks it also looks late as hell like it doesn't look. It doesn't look just like nighttime. It looks like it's late really fucking stupid like i. Not that. I want people to like you know flout these rules or whatever but it just looks. They did it. The stupidest way that i could imagine doing this type of kind of activity Are photos all over the son of like police officer showing up in peering into windows. They're blurry paparazzi time photos of her sister and that guy vast morgan showing up with arm. Loads of prospero tequila articulate brand. Poppy delevingne kara levin. A lot of people. I can't recognize among the thirty so if we have photos of those we have photos of the people people knew you know but there are twenty eight other people who weren't photograph because i guess they weren't important enough to be photographed. Her hat to have photographs. Patty love to identify those people. So according to the loss this is what it says in the guardian england's national lockdown which ends on tuesday which is like ria you could of waited it's against the law to meet more than person you do not live with acceptance specific circumstances. Police have the power to break up gatherings issue fines of up to ten thousand pounds for breaches of regulations so she just voluntarily pay according to the sun this morning. She just voluntarily paid ten thousand pounds. She was like you know what. Here's the money police. Stay away from me. I'm so sorry alone. She's on the cover of the sun with a mask on in a big firm furnish coat that says read a party. Cheater was a really good. That was a really good line in the sun that said bang out of ora. Rita ora slammed she flouts lockdown laws. With thirty thousand. I was like bang out of something. Must be a british slang and it is. It's bang out of order which means someone is like acting a mess acting fool. You're being unreasonable. Your bang out of order posted a apology already on instagram winch. Is you know she said hello. I attended a small gathering with you through the gathering rita. You through the party. It was it was a spur of the moment decision. No it wasn't. It was a party that you through a birthday party made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown. This would be okay. You were but few days later. Sorry i've commentary for all this. I'm deeply sorry raking the rules and intern understand that. This put people at risk. This was a serious inexcusable. Error of judgement given the restrictions. I realize how responsibilities actions and i take full responsibility. I feel particularly embarrassed knowing firsthand. How hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to help. Keep us all safe. Even though. this won't make it right. I want to sincerely apologize.

Who have been tapped to serve as secretary state and national security adviser respectively. What do we need to know about them. Well both of them have a pretty long standing relationships with biden's so you know that these are people who kind of know what the president-elect thinking and who share a similar worldview and there are definitely people that he trusts especially as he'll be busy with some domestic crises at home. These are people who can kind of go abroad and be sort of his delegates. Both of them worked in the obama administration and worked with the vice. President at the time was job. I didn't of course and blinking ended up as the number two at the state department. So he'll be taking over as the top position now. So he's well known in the building and sullivan of course worked at the state department closely with clinton then again worked as a national security advisor to the vice president biden and he did a lot of middle east policy particularly negotiating the iran nuclear deal so they have a lot of experience. And they're pretty conventional picks. So we'll see what happens josh. I have to say that among the names that were mentioned was a name. That much like obi wan kenobi. Now that's a name. I've not long. The name was john kerry former secretary of state. he is biden's pick to be the first presidential envoy for climate.

Pilot Holiday Gift Ideas: The iPad

"Why don't we. Why don't we start at the top end of the price range and and i say that You know we we. I'm looking at my list here. And i have about ten things on here and Probably the most expensive thing and probably in my opinion The the most useful thing that we have on on the list here is an ipad You know we talked about paper vs plastic on previous podcast on whether The the way to go as paper charts or plastic chair or or electronic flight bag if you will and Obviously we go with the f. b. Which is that's that's that's the wave of the future Pad is necessary so there are lots of different options with ipads memory size Cellular cellular versus non cellular. And what i will say about. That is If you are looking to purchase an ipad you definitely want to buy one with cellular capability and the reason is an ipad with cellular capability has a gps chip built into it and That way as you're using your ipad In the airplane you'll have your position your position will always be displayed now. You you don't have to activate the The cellular service on the ipad. So you're not. You're not having to pay a monthly subscription to that but you definitely want to buy an ipad. That has the cellular capability. And it's usually another hundred and thirty dollars extra for that particular ipad in so i think i was confused even early on. I'm kind of tech guy the the value of that additional chip you really instead of buying a third party external card that would provide that. Gps information you're getting that built into the ipad. So if i don't have a gps source by chance than the ipad will give it to me and you don't ever have to turn on the sailor services what you're saying correct that's exactly right. And and the occasional time where you might be at an airport that's may be out in the middle of nowhere and you don't have wifi capability You can very simply Get cellular service. You're going to pay for it. You're going to have to put a credit card in it. You may have to commit to twenty dollars for a given month but it's always nice to have that backup. I do activate the cellular service on my ipad And I i don't use it a whole lot because most of the time i am on wi fi but there are where you're out Somewhere and you don't have wifi available and you you'll want to file a flight plan or or or or or whatever Check the weather. It is nice to have that ability. But again you don't have to activate it so you don't have to pay the monthly fee. And as i'm sure varies by carrier. But i think mine's ten dollars device so if you turn it on its ten dollars you can turn it on and off pretty frequently if you wanna twos. Well you're just going to be hit with that ten dollar so maybe you don't fly much in the winter turn it off. Turn it on the summertime It's great so let's talk about size and size so screen size and memory size probably a personal preference thing. I wish the there was almost something in between the mini and the the eleven incher. Right eleven inches. Just a little too big for the board pad for me. Kinda thing the minis great. I have an old mini. It's time to upgrade my new to the newer mini for sure Because it's running slow. But i like many in the cockpit and i carry my larger ipad. My fly bag is a backup Any thoughts or suggestions there. Yeah i i it it's definitely personal preference though. The one thing that i do like about them many is It is it does mount easily on the oak In in our one seventy two it fits right between the two Handles actually and it fits really nice on the yoke I'm not a mount it type person. I usually just keep the ipad in my lap. I've i've never really used kneeboard. I most of the applicants that i gave check rides to use knee boards and they use them very effectively. It's it's just something that Forty years ago. When i was learning to fly it just wasn't a part of the The norm for people using the board so It's just something. I never really adapted to but my i have the eleven inch. Ipad pro I think the super-duper ipad the twelve point nine inch or whatever it is. I think it's just a little bit too too big too bulky I said i kind of wish. There was one between the mini and the eleven inch because maybe about an I don't know a tween ipad with would be would be nice You know. I i do find that. The older people like the bigger ones. The younger people liked the smaller ones. And that probably has something to do with the vision but You know are obviously able to pinch out to make make the the things bigger I would say the with. The ipad mini To me reading text Isn't as as you know. I don't like it near as much As i do in my eleven inch ipad so it is a personal preference and just keep in mind I think most people are not going to buy an ipad and and dedicated strictly to aviation. You're going to use it for other things. You're gonna find all kinds of other uses for it if you don't have an ipad already but It's a great device And as far as the other size. It's you know the the memory. How much memory you have on your ipad is is Is something to look at. And of course the more memory the more expensive so there are economics involved in this

"Maybe feather on the president's capped by finally getting some kind of deal through on his way out but that's not the case he's just sitting there most days doing nothing hiding from the press going golfing on the weekends and tweeting about these conspiracy theories with respect to the election that again. His legal team is not able to break through on. Because there's simply no merit pays. I would say that sabrina saying that. The legal efforts from the trump campaign now breaking through. It's actually pretty polite way to put it overall because they're getting kind of pummeled in court like they're getting laughed out of a lot of courts we just saw this case in pennsylvania a few days ago where the judge said that trump campaign's legal argument amounts to a frankenstein's monster of an argument. It has no merit whatsoever and the judge spent thirty seven pages tearing apart this argument. Us district court judge matthew brand writing one might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome a plate of would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption. That has not happened all this. I read the whole decision. And i don't really recall decisions. I usually just wait for a twitter summary of what happened. It just systematically disassembled every argument. The trump campaign was making hayes of this point. Is there any chance that trump's legal effort will change just like anything. No i really don't think so. I don't think that that's the game plan at this point. Given like you said how so far. All of their legal challenges have been baked laughed out of court. Regally is performance in pennsylvania was a sight to behold. Let's let's put it that way. It was something all right that keen legal mind rudy giuliani. But at this point they actually appealed that decision even though they were completely roasted in like. You said thirty seven pages. There filed an appeal a very confusing appeal. That's kind of the point. So trump in his like legal maneuverings while he's been president and through most of his life. He's mostly been on defense which means that he's had the opportunity to sit back and stonewall and play for time you saw this in the impeachment proceedings. You saw this in the fight over his tax returns but with this one he had to go on offense and it hasn't really worked out very well for him. So far i will say though that in keeping the court fights going in filing these appeals. I don't think the aim is to really win. That way at this point is to be able to keep saying. We're still fighting this in court as long as you can honestly say we're still fighting this in court. You can keep asking people for money for donations. You can keep the campaign go you keep putting out press releases saying it's not over and you give cover to other republics odds out over. The president has his time in court. The court systems work before we say that. Joe biden is president. Elect for sure so in that way. His stolen for time helping to that end sabrina. The trump campaign requested a second recount in georgia because the results came in and joe biden won the state and then they requested a hand recount and the hand count was done and the trump campaign is requesting recount. That at it just seems like it's only about keeping the story in the press and nothing else like there's no strategy here. There's no particular endpoint that they're trying to achieve. What is the game plan. Well the end point..

"So we are recording best the friday after the election so things haven't been called yet but we're pretty sure we're gonna know how this racist cali and it is going to lead to as heavy the first woman vice president and that will be a black related a woman and i have with the day here to talk about it to me. A wilson who is everything google her. I mean you're all going to hear about her in the intro that juliet. Thank you for joining me. How are you feeling. Because i got all the feelings. My champagne is a fridge chillan. I can't wait. I can't wait. I am elated. I think the only thing that is really holding me back. Like i'd always imagine that i'd be dancing in the streets when we got this news like i really are liberation celebration. I feel like. I need my liberation celebration. So my only sadness is about covid. Nineteen limiting the level of hype and party that this moment deserves. I'm so excited. I'm so excited to see. Kamala harris make history ads for women for black women for women of color for indian women and also just to have competent. Who have a heart in a people house and take our country back so important for me just throughout the campaign when vice hers bided president elect biden was just talking to people. This is just so refreshing and during that obeys where he walked right into the camera and spoke to people. I knew i had missed that by didn't know how no no now how much i have missed that. And i'm just looking forward to waking up every morning and not having to worry about what foolishness is donald trump going to do today. I'm just so excited. So i wearing my stacey. Abrams shirt today because she is the. Mvp and georgia everything that she has done. And i do wanna talk about the voters but first we gotta talk about how the fifty three percent as now fifty. Five percent the karens really care and in a extended their care majority like fifty five percent of white women voted for donald trump. This is not surprise. The not surprise at all that this is where we are so would love to hear from you when you saw the fifty five percent or you shot. What's going through your mind. I'm so sad that i expected this and i spent a lot of time. Kind of feeling level of guilt around expecting this and becoming numb to that level of betrayal that we as loan of color no expect and have experience again and again and just understanding that patriarchy is drug and white supremacy as a drug and so it's been rough to really think about how complicit the majority of white women are and their accomplices to this kind of terror their accomplices to having a lack of empathy for other marginalized people and not really seeing themselves in the reality of being marginalized people even despite what's happening on the supreme court even despite having multiple sexual predators on the supreme court and one in the white house so for me. It's it's really hard. I wrote a piece in twenty seventeen and the headline for it was. It's complicated. White women white men and white supremacy. And i have thought about it a lot and thought about this history from the plantations to now of the covenant Around how white supremacist. Patriarchy really needs. White women to continue to have it fueled. And that's the thing that i think. I have a lot of grief about that There despite them enduring all of the same kinds of misogynistic a reality Face around the world obviously with their privilege as a part of got They're still the idea that rejecting white supremacy is going to push them away from the privileges and power that they do have and it's easier to accept that to maintain what positioning they have over us. Who are not covered by. That are not protected by that. And so it's a little bit me. When i think about people who've defied bisque over fifty percent of people like heather hair or viola liu so those women were made martyrs that they dared to defy the white patriarchy in paid the price with their lives. So it's something. I think about quite a bit because i I have a sense of understanding. About how conditioning led to that and that by no means means that. I'm keeping for anyone but to say that they also really need to recognize that. That white supremacy patriarchy depends on them to go forth. And even richard spencer and the charlottesville the the language that they used around the invitation to charlottesville had language in it calling on white women. They recognized that. We need you to continue to serve your role for us to prosper. And for me as a black woman i think black men in a different power dynamic of a world where to do that i was stopped that right there because i'd be subordinate in it. But the fact that women are saying. I'll take those crumbs an order to still be over these other people. That's the part. That's still sits really painfully with me. In that we need white women to change it that this is not our job to facts but white women really need to come even harder for. There's

"Him president trump. He's moving very fast to fix the country and keep his promises to you. The american people thought very nice. Where like you said dictate to result. I imagine the network is going to be facing a lot of pressure to call the election for trump even in a scenario where he's leading but he's not elected slate put in pretty stark terms. They wrote the fox news. Decision desk controls the fate of american democracy. How worried are you. That fox is not going to do the thing that they should do. You know facts. Like is bizarre complicated institution that doesn't really function the way to expected to function because yes it is. Tv is it a tv run state. Who knows but facts is obviously very very central to donald. Trump's whole thing fox also is very weakly lead it had a sort of powerful chieftain in roger ailes founded in ninety six and was forced to retire in two thousand sixteen after sexual abuse allegations and then died and they never really replaced him. The inmates run the asylum hannity runs. Hannity tucker runs tucker. There's some mid level executives who control bits and pieces here and there and they never really resolved to runs election nights and there's a guy who's been consulting there. The late nineties named aren't in michigan. He voted for hillary clinton last time he sees a upper west side ivy league establishment type. Who runs their decision desk. I interviewed him a couple of weeks ago and asked him who he reports to he. Kinda thought about it for a while and said he didn't know in murdoch there strains murdoch world where he wants to get good information and good intelligence so there's always been this funny circle drawn around the decision desk and it really played out very clearly in two thousand twelve where karl rove bush's consultant was there sort of on-air analysts and the network called the state of ohio for obama. And that means obama's gonna be the next president on air says. That was a mistake. It's too soon. You've gotta wait. The votes aren't all in ohio. What the outcome is going to be. But you should. We gotta be careful about calling things when we have like nine hundred ninety one votes separating the two candidates and a quarter vote yet to count. Megan kelly then walks with her. Microphone back behind the scenes of down this long hallway. We'll do a little interrogations and see if they stand by their call notwithstanding the dallas into this room full of men in suits and arden than says no rose full shit and these are the results. We're actually quite comfortable with the call in ohio. Basically right now. There's just too much obama. Vote that's outstanding. There that we know is gonna come in. Cleveland has been counted yet and ninety nine point. Five percent confident. That's good enough and that was it. It was sort of very sort of like visible showdown between the dominant political side of fox. And this funny little analytical corner that one you know i don't think we're is in love with donald trump. There's no real sign of that and it's just not clear who would sort of execute the coup required to change the calls election so i actually think fox is likely to play that straight..

"Are you worried about how they're going to handle stories like these column in august was meant to kind of like a. Self cancelling prophecy. I wasn't the only one saying. But i think it kind of was newsrooms really have woken up to the sort of reality that this could really go on for awhile and take your take awhile to count votes. And they've done a pretty good job. Educating the public sixty some percent of people now realize they are likely to get results on election night then by the way if we could well get results on election night right if the polls are accurate will know before midnight in toronto. I think that the hardest part for the media. But although i do think people are stressing about it and focused on the way they never been before is reporting accurately and patiently on the counting of votes in a system. That is so sort of antiquated and rusted in bazaar. Your impulses just to be like. There's gotta be something wrong here and there. Obviously broadly is something wrong with america does elections. But that doesn't necessarily mean that the nice senior citizens in you know the mojang valley in pennsylvania who are like taking a really long time to report the results because they keep dropping on the floor and having to start again that like anything is wrong and honestly. The system is very very resistant to large scale manipulation. For the same reason that it is such it sort of disaster to just try to figure out what's going on i hear you but at the same time you know when i hear. Donald trump speaks sort of the last weekend of campaigning. One of his rallies. He said if we don't know the results on election night he said there's going to be bedlam that his word he said he's going to be bedlam and that he specs the supreme court to figure out a way to stop the counting of the votes on the night of the election. The system might be resistant fair to say but it is not entirely immune especially when someone in the of the presidency starts to say these things to say that he expects the results to be counted on election. Night when reality doesn't reflect that. And i guess i'm wondering how is been approaching donald trump's comments about the voting on election day because there's so much room for error and how to handle the president saying these things i mean i think the media has been doing an okay job of not amplifying them too much. Trump doesn't control the machinery of american elections at all. There isn't a central election commission. There isn't a federal agency that runs elections. He's obviously joining up his supporters to you know potentially commit acts of violence. If this thing is close adthe polling places. I am its terrifying and i think he's also bracing for massive massive crowds in the streets outside the white house chanting for him to leave another place. You could imagine getting out of control and in other countries that's often where things get really scary is around the presidential palace..

"This joke is was what Joe Biden would say under trump's watch, and we need to go back to the days when America is seen as the leader sort of leader on again, all the issues that are the most pressing issues of this time. No I should tell you that in two thousand fifteen after doesn't Trudeau was elected. He said Canada's back and ready to help. I, want to say this. To this country's friends all around the world. Many of you have worried that Canada has lost its compassionate and constructive voice in the world over the past ten years well. I have a simple message for you on behalf of thirty, five, million Canadians were back. So we've tried this this sort of theatrical announcement of saying, Hey, we retreated from the world stage for a while but now we've returned that is a Justin Trudeau special. Now have to ask Hayes if Biden spending all this time talking about all the damage that trump has done to the reputation of the world. are going to be going to be as easy as making that phone call and say, sorry are bad. But now we're back how does the world actually learned to trust the US again that's a great question because unfortunately this, this whole episode has proved that there's no guarantee that we don't get another trump soon is the problem for the rest of the world like, yeah, like Joe Biden. For a four year stretch. But what happens after that for years? I feel like that's something that's that the rest of the world is going to be looking at over the next couple of decades like okay. So we saw you at your worst. Can you actually say to us with a straight face that you're not going to go back to that ever because I don't think you can i. don't think you can say that we will never again have someone on this level of like just breaking things of cross the international order, which is going to be a real problem because. Under a potential by demonstration slash under a second trump term, the US is going to have to confront in a very real way that we haven't yet the fact that it is a much more multipolar world than all of our strategy. Since one, thousand, nine, forty-five really accounted for we have not just the eve economic superpowers of the US and China to think about in terms of strategy, we have to also consider the fact that Russia's playing this greater and greater role as as a revisionist power. We have smaller powerbases popping up regionally, and that's something that Abidin Administration or the trump administration is going to have to really confront and. Unfortunately, when even your allies can't say for sure that they know that you have their back. Basically a question of, is it easier to fight off to large ducts or one hundred tiny ducts? two-horse is. One hundred days ducks, and right now, we are still stuck in the fighting maybe one horse size duck mindset in terms of foreign policy versus Oh. There's a bunch of tie ducks coming from us. Maybe we should make some of these ducks are friends. No ducks don't trust. US were all alone. That's where we're at right now. And just kind of on a similar point. And we don't know obviously if Joe Biden is going to be elected..

"The woods but as of now, vice president isn't isn't ill but you know there's a wide range about comes right here One question is like trump see like a sympathy bump you know sometimes when President Of the US or otherwise get sick. They they see a bit of a bump in the polls Boris got one, but he was very early terminent since kind of operated Bolsonaro in Brazil got one. But that was more about the checks he was sending to people because of the pandemic, necessarily his own illness. So people are a little mixed on whether trump will see any sort of polling Bob America's just. So divided right now that you know I have a hard time seeing that it would be a really big one but I, it's possible. There's precedent suggests that when presidents get sick the Americans sympathize a bit and the bump in the polls and before I, let you go. I think one disorienting consequence of all of this has been watching all of the conspiracy theories that have followed in the wake of the president saying that he's been diagnosed a lot of people who have been skeptical that he even telling the truth about it. and. Of course, that is that is rooted in a history of this administration's relationship to the truth which let's say has been a bit uneven. And what I'm curious about is. Is there any chance? That that skepticism has any sort of you know grounds should we is there any chance that trump is making up at all I? Mean absolutely that the relationship with the truth is a factor. This is kept our friend and fellow Canadian DC Daniel Dale busy for. The last several years. So yeah, I think I think the administration is not built itself up a lot of trust when it's dealing with this. Like they. It looks like they might have tried or at least delay. Releasing hopes tests. So I think in my mind, there are signs that they wanted to keep this secret rather than they've.

"It's GonNa hurt their ability to raise money but. You know going back a week I mean the last time I was on the plane was about ten nine days ago, ten days ago, and it's like they were acting as if it was almost a normal campaign rallies were moved quasi outside outside he's been doing them at airplane hangars, but we come out to these land. We pile up the plane, they share the press into some pen. People are not wearing masks. People are shoulder to shoulder. Trump goes on stage. He's elevated in a way distanced. So you know it's possible that if the virus is circulating that he wasn't going to get sick but you know he he puts the press pool like me like we're down there his staff or sort of mingling around your plenty plenty of ways for the virus to have made its way into his orbit Even if he himself was distance at these rallies. But yeah, they had been proceeding like this and you mention you know the the the handling of the pandemic is a core issue for him. Really the only issue he pulls Biden on the economy and even there his lead has shrunk. Americans in poll after poll after poll, not only trust Biden to do better going forward than trump on the pandemic. Give trump a fairly wide net approval, negative negative approval rating on his handling of the pandemic. In other words. They think he's done a crummy job of it till now and they think he'll do a crummy job from now and so you're totally right I. mean obviously you know we're gonNA be sort of. Proverbial Defcon two is the press you know worried about the president's health is everyone including Joe Biden praise in hopes that the president and first lady make a recovery. But you know it is unavoidable that the virus in the pandemic and the the ferocity which with with with Justin can spread is going to be top line for the next week or two at least, and we just don't know how this is GonNa work out the can you know? Assuming trump recovers assuming he makes a full recovery as his doctors seemed confident. He'll be able to do can meet that second debate. We don't know you know will they have to reschedule it? Do they have to cancel the other debates? You know. Can he resume Kim Ha campaigning? I don't know in the backdrop millions of votes are being cast already because of course, states are expanding the option to vote by mail even at the pandemic I think that's a really important point to remind people that election day is is one day, but this is not a usual election and millions of votes have already been cast lots of people are going to vote. In advance of that day as well. This thing is baking in the oven right now. It's already in process. It was interesting to watch Joe Biden Strategy Shift. Very quickly, and immediately after the diagnosis was released, there was a times broke the story that they're going to pull all the negative ads. Because obviously that you can't be running negative ads while the president is sick. Yeah. the the trump campaign has sort of declined to do the same you know I I don't WanNa put my like cynical politics add on too much but I think the by them people certainly don't want to risk being seen as a dunking on the president and First Lady's illness that would be tacky to say the least so I think that's why we're seeing them do that. But. You know the president has routinely just not. It followed the advice of his own CDC with the virus I mean he's worn the he's worn a mask..

"She is a conservative justice conservatives love her. There's a lot of open question of whether she would, for instance, be a deciding vote to strike down over Makara be deciding vote to strip down Roe v Wade? So it's a big fight for her nomination but trump is so energized by the chance to appoint a third Supreme Court justice, which is not a chance. A lot of presidents get that he had this big ceremony almost couldn't help himself and so dozens of people sat shoulder to shoulder outside granted but very few with. And you know now we've got eight cases linked to that. Day or at least there are cases eight people who were there that day and it wasn't just. There's photos that they went inside afterwards at the White House and had one or reportedly even like two separate rooms where there were receptions. So the I think a lot of the focus on tracking. Hey, when president trump catch the virus, how did this fail? You know? Where are we starting? And Contractors in front if there is contact tracing a lot of it goes back to Saturday a week ago in the Rose Garden. It's a really interesting point that you bring up that that Rose Garden event was sort of. The initial point for all of these early seems to initial point for all of this because the Republicans have been moving at breakneck speed on in order to get amy conybeare through before the election, it's one thing to announce the nominee. It's quite another to have this massive. Totally, I'll be at the Rose Garden totally I mean they they had done it or done. It socially distanced I. Think it's a fair question as to whether we would have the cluster of cases or clusters even that we're seeing we're starting now to see even second tier cases. So for instance, one of the people that tested positive is bill stepien. I'm actually not sure off hand, but don't actually think he was at the Rose Garden but he had been in debate prep. So with Chris Christie who was in the Rose Garden and was later in debate prep, Chris Christie the former New Jersey governor has tested positive out running mcdaniel, the chairwoman of be our NC The Republican Party has tested positive but wasn't linked to these events but was linked to a potential family case until you can see how these things sort of ripple out right you know. The cases aren't necessarily all from that Saturday thing, but you can start drawing lines back to Saturday Ron Johnson a Republican senator now has it. He was not there on the Saturday, but he said he had contact with someone who later tested positive kind of don't know who that person is certainly possible. It's one of the other two senators who have positive since So you know it's just it is just rippling through but yeah, you know they it is. We're now situation where Republican senators are falling ill. which is raising questions about their ability to meet their own aggressive timeline to nominate conybeare at they don't have that many votes to spare someone is ill and unable to cast a vote that could potentially change things. But as of now, they're saying the pressing ahead in fact, Mitch McConnell's exact words our full steam ahead on nominating amy conybeare it before the election confirming confirming before the election let's just take a pause here, and then we'll when we come back, we'll talk about what it all means for the election.

"Potential constitutional crisis. It's GonNa be unprecedented well, actually, not really right because we saw this during the Gore election and all the chaos and far ended up going all the way to the Supreme Court, which is why some people are super concerned that there's GonNa be a majority conservative of Supreme Court at this point the worst case scenario is that this becomes like something where. The American people you know are taking action on their own people are pissed off I. Just don't WanNa see people outside in the streets uninformed about the process and taking out one American Senate say against the other you describe a terrifying scenario, a scenario that I've only ever seen play out in movies I. Mean there have been books and articles that are speculated maybe a full blown civil war and that used to be really dramatic really hyperbolic. But now nothing feels like it's out of the realm of possibility anymore and I don't know how you react to all of this this notion of people sort of taking to the streets in anger at the results of an election. It's not really what you expect from the United State why it's like developing world things right we also had the president say that he would send our military to. Pull site people are upset look at Portland where trump supporters are now feel like they're emboldened to retaliate for people who are peacefully protesting, and sadly the president is actually encouraging things like this. When protests I started, it was the president said, well, you know tonight, liberals are protesting, but it'll be Maggie nights tomorrow. So I don't I. Don't see that getting any better coming out of the administration or just the President I should say, can I just say the one remarkable thing has been the amount of confusion that has gone into this election whether it's In ballots or the Republicans fighting several court battles for for bunch of states trying to expand their options for voting there is it appears to be. Assertive Elaborate campaign that has various prongs of confusing voters and back in August. The president of the end of lease EP warned about this. He said all their actions indicate that they will do all. They can't prevent people from voting. The said I I think stealing the election is a possibility suppressing the vote is an absolute and misleading voters is a part of their strategy how successful has strategy been? Let's talk about. The whole naked ballot situation right. So basically, there are sixteen states still require voters to put their ballot inside two envelopes, one to conceal how you voted and just a general. That act that actually goes in the mail. So your board of elections. So what happened in Pennsylvania recently caught rule that if you do not mail that ballot and the secrecy envelope, your ballot can be thrown out. The problem with that is as early as June when they had their primary that wasn't the rule so you can understand why that would be confusing and why people would say That that is a form of voter suppression because it's very confusing. That's just one way. Obviously because of the corona virus laws are changing all the time or rules are changing inside a specific election districts or states as to what they're supposed to do. I don't think people are very aware of how things are changing and. Even when it comes to voting a polling site, so there's going to be a lot of confusion sadly, and yeah, I can understand why the end up as if he would be concerned you, you've been talking to voters what are what are you hearing from the average person about mailing voting like are they? Are they buying trump's comments? Are they freaked out about it? Yeah. So at first I, thought it was kind of just like this dog whistle thing, but it's totally like specifically to Republicans that that they should get out to. To the polling sites and After like talking to people especially in Pennsylvania, everyone is spooked. Democrats are saying, no, I'm not going to. He's not GonNa Cheat me. I'M GONNA, make sure I go into the polling site Republicans are like well, if you can come to Walmart, you can go to a polling site. We've been voting that way. Why are we going to change the system now? Totally just like not recognizing the whole corona virus thing so People are spooked. While I do think there's going to be a lot of mailing votes. And also, what I think is. Very under-reported think there's GonNa be a lot of long lines and people are going to play the polling sites just because he's been stoking fear consistently about mail in voting people are very confused. They don't know who to believe at this point and they're going to head to the polls. I'm just going to wrap this up by saying that I've seen a noticeable shift in Democrat. Messaging. Couple of weeks. From educated people mailing voting to say no, no, no, we need you out in the polls and I think it's a reflection of trying to counteract that Republican strategy of just making voting is confusing as possible. So Democrats present you know what what you need to do is figure out a way to get to your polling station. So it really is GonNa come down to the old fashioned get out the vote even in the middle of a pandemic. Which is a bit scary like I of course, I spoke to a seventy five year old man who just had knee surgery a couple of months ago and you know what he said he was so excited that they could do Malin voting this year. A week. Later he was like, yeah but I don't know because people are worried I'm just GONNA stand online. So this man with knee surgery is probably gonNA spend hours outside of his local polling site. So there we have it that that's what our election is mounting to. It was stressful but also really nice talking to you. Thank you for your insights and thank you so much for doing this. Thank you. Thank you for having me. This was great I. Hope People have a better understanding about what's going on over here. I certainly hope that they do. That's it. That's it.

"And it's just not a question that's being asked right now I mean every other country in the world literally, every other country in the world is is having a conversation about how to emerge from the coronavirus economically anyway and figure out a forward I'm in Canada that is the entire conversation of what this government's trying to do trying to sort of imagine what happens next economically, the absence of that in the US has been really alarming. Because you have one first of all the largest economy in the world but but second of all, you would think that based on how many people have lost their jobs. This year based on how many people have had to take the massive government programs that Republicans rolled out in March that ended up expiring that would be sort of front and center that both candidates would be presenting. Really, massive economic packages at least in terms of relief, but it's just absent and I would like Them to at least allude to to their plans of how they're going to come to the rescue people. All, right we're GONNA take a quick break in a minute what happens if trump loses and refuses to concede. You know you're smart funny friends who always seemed to have the best celebrity gossip I'm talking about the ones who always know where you should be watching or reading or listening to what if you could pick their brains every week pop chat is a brand new podcast but does exactly that and feels like spending time with your best friends. So join me Alina Mahmoud and a panel of the smartest culture critics that I know as. We dissect the discourse, but also have a great time doing it from CBC PODCASTS and the Fifth Estate brainwashed is a multi burn investigation into the CIA experiments in mind control from the Cold War and M. K. Ultra to the so-called on terror we learn about a psychiatrist who used his patients as human guinea pigs and what happens when the military and medicine collide listen to brainwashed the CBC listen up or wherever you get your podcasts. Okay, we're back. So over the past few months, trump spent a lot of time attacking mail and voting the ballots are control Yuno it, and you know who knows it better than anybody else Democrats know it better than anybody else we know a lot of people are going to be voting by mail this year. Because of the coronavirus but we also know that that's more likely than Republicans to vote by mail. These comments that trump made a lot of people worried that you know in the case that he loses. He ended up raising questions about the legitimacy of the results of the election. He ended up blaming mailing ballots and ultimately possibly even refuse to give up power He. It's not the first time. He said something about this. He's hinted about it over the summer and then last week those fears got a bit more real. They certainly did I mean on Wednesday when asked if he'd commit to a peaceful transfer He said. We're GONNA, have to see what happens you have to see. What happens you know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are disaster. People rioting, and then on Thursday he doubled down saying he wasn't sure the election could be honest because mail-in votes of mail in ballots are quote unquote a whole big scam. I WANNA start by addressing this talking point of trump's that mail in ballots are inherently fraudulent. They are not and like the head of the FBI. Director Christopher Ray told Congress that the agency has not seen historically that any kind of coordinating national voter fraud effort in this major Alexa and any major election whether it's by mail or otherwise. With, that said there's been to recently reported incidence and the president is. Like really honing in on them because we are in the middle of a pandemic, there are going to be a lot. Of Mail in ballots. So it is going to take time. There has been numerous reports that it's going to take a lot of time to count these ballots. The President keeps deferring to his former Congress members, congresswoman Carolyn Maloney ways where it took like. An extra four five weeks to counter vote. But that is what's going to happen I'm not sure why he's pointing to that and saying that there's fraud involved when it just took a lot of time like twenty minutes ago he said the same thing about male in folding. And this is why people think that he's trying to undermine the election by continuing this rhetoric about mail in voting not being safe it's frankly scaring people including his own voters to me the the the efforts that trump has been taking and the Republican Party have been taken to discredit million voting frankly I think they should be overwhelming people because even though in this presidency with with. Kind of normalized, the pending of a lot of norms, the idea that president wouldn't give up power. If he lost an election, it falls outside of even the norms of the trump presidency and as a result vaccines something, we haven't seen happen in a few years, which is in the early years of the trump presidency every time that you kind of pushed the envelope on a political norm. Republicans would come out and Tattoo normalized and be like that's not really going to happen and we saw this happen for the for the first time in a bunch of years a bunch of Republicans came out and said, no, no. No there will definitely be a peaceful transfer of power. I saw Mitch McConnell say that I saw Mitt Romney say that and those comments became sort of a genuine test for the conservatism of a lot of Republicans because if you are Republican if you're a conservative and you believe in those institutions and their value then you. Logically can't go along with trump even questioning the possibility of not going along with that. Yeah. It was something right to see Republicans in the Senate rally together and say now this is going to happen is going to be a peaceful transfer but I have to say they did this during war powers right voted against him for war powers than vetoed and then they. Maintain veto. So I I mean hopefully they're gonNA stick to their guns with this and there's no wavering from now until an inauguration no matter who wins. Because we do understand if he wins, this is not going to be subject, right? This is specifically. If Joe Biden, the election, the popular vote or the electoral? College. Well let's let's talk about that actually because you know like it is amazing. I think that so much of democracy hinges on these norms like it is a norm, a president power. There's not like I. Don't know if it's written anywhere they just like the idea that this president has lost the election now they're. Going to peacefully handover power the next person who won that election and how much these these democracy rules can be thrown into chaos. If you get someone who says well I don't know maybe we'll see. We've seen these stories of Nancy Pelosi wrangling the troops and just in case the Democrats the Democrats to decide the presidency and the case in which that would happen is if there's a tie in the electoral college that it ends up going to yield Congress and that's where Nancy Pelosi has domain we've also seen the possibility of a tie at the Supreme Court level. So. If the election ends up being decided the Supreme Court but the Supreme Court is a tie then the lower court's decisions on the election ends up standing. So there's all kinds of possibilities of chaos here. The only way that you don't see complete chaos after election day itself is if it's a very clear victory on either side was a very clear victory on either side but that is not really what we're looking at this point we not really looking at a very decisive election. So we are kind of headed towards a lot of confusion and a.

"Debate prep and trump. Has Been mostly doing it on the go just like these little sprints and I wonder about that I wonder about how effective that ends up being because Donald Trump is not someone that you can really over coach all these notes about how when his aides give him a lot of instructions and he kind of gets tunes them out. So it this is definitely something that trump supporters are looking forward to right how this debate is going to go down. I think it's a wrong strategy for any opponent to predict the outcome of debate and the president was Kinda. Hedging on that for a while. Jews naral there everybody knows it. and. It said when you look at it and you see she see it for yourself. He's created his own sanctuary city in the basement of wherever he is. And he doesn't come out it. kind of gives biden it's like Phantom Edge. So even if you perform just mediocre, he comes out looking super gray. We certainly saw that happened on the primary debate stage especially after a few gaffes and I, think the president could potentially setting himself up to give. Just like a false boost to biden I saw colleague Molly Henze clancy did a really great story. She was reporting from Minnesota as you know this period of time, it was kind of intensive just a couple of days after the death of Ruth, Bader Ginsburg and which you found is kind of the story of the election. You know it's like the story of an election that no matter what happens nothing really changes like what's happened but you know over and over again, she talked to people who have already made up their minds and the first co host we had on this podcast was Robert Clicquot of the Washington Post he's. Reporting. In Wisconsin he said the same thing he just keeps running into people who have already made up their minds and and we in the media we tend to look for these race changing narratives and race changing moments. You know we look for the big thing like Oh this is going to make the whole election going another direction and we are recording this the day after the New York Times released a bomb show the New York Times is now reporting the president pays almost no federal income taxes because his businesses loose so much money unlike other investigative pieces there is a headline here that is digestible just ahead of the campaign. Media, folks are excited like this could change the direction of the debate and I'm just the election rather and I'm just not sure you know I. Mean you raise a good question about the tax story I think times understood that same dilemma and they appropriately open the peace with like the president paid seven, hundred, fifty dollars in. Taxes men two, thousand, fifteen in two, thousand, sixteen. I think that was great like how many people can say that that was their tax bill much hundred fifty dollars no right. Right. So much of it while an excellent report gets a little Wonky, but it does give you really good insight into like corporate manipulation how the president took advantage of that and all kinds of tax loopholes. For instance, they talk about how nine hundred million dollar loss into his trump tower or a tax break for. Nearly two decades right. I would also argue that this is something many wealthy people take advantage of is just It's a little. Uncomfortable when it comes from the president and again, I think when you think about a multimillionaire or some would say billionaire paying seven hundred and fifty dollars a little off putting. So not sure if it's going to change minds not sure it's going to. Change that small small. Factor in this election right now. But yeah, I'm sure it caught people's attention. Yeah I agree with you. I agree with you that at least I think it should hit home feels like it's too early to say whether it will or not, and just with so many different things happening I mean you were in a year of the pandemic and the pandemic hasn't really changed the race and I think that is overwhelming to even think about the notion of two hundred thousand people dead in the US and the polling numbers kind of continue to be about the same Biden's up, you know eight to nine points undecideds hang around three. To four percent similarly when you go into a debate where you have such firmed up opinions, there's no winning is there like there's no like coming out of it being like I have one the other side because nothing but happening out in the real world is changing people's opinions. I just don't imagine that anything that is said on that stage is going to change minds I. Think it'll come down to performance when I was on the road many people just when I was talking to them about unrelated stuff their point was I want to see them get on the debate stage I want the American people to see exactly what they're getting. Would schnauzers down to a performance aspect of the actual presidency reason we should talk about that because the trump campaign you mentioned it earlier they've spent months and months sort of setting expectations so low for Joe. Biden like Bina, this point can just trip over the bar and he will he will be over it. Trump is called in sleepy joe he said that he'd much rather debate with Biden because by does not fully there this weekend there was a sort of a weird tweet from the president which feels like a thing we say often, but it said that Biden has had uneven debate performances and suggested that you know there were some kind of. Performance enhancing drugs involved in like look. I'm not a scientist, but a debate is not it's not a track like he's not like about one hundred meter race right I mean I, think people forget he did the same thing in two thousand sixteen to Hillary Clinton. Yeah and he pulls the same thing that you know she came into the debate would super high energy and by the end of the debate, she could barely get her car I mean. But seriously I kinda do the onus is going to be on Vice President Joe Biden to. Debunk any of these. You know accusations attacking his mental occupant maybe those that little bit undecided such is GonNa say like, Oh, you know what? I want to vote for him. I don't want to vote for trump I don't understand where this guy is coming from or he'd probably just doesn't have the mental capacity to handle the position. I think data, what the binding camp is looking at right you. There's report that he has been practicing and looking at plans. So I think it's going to be a reputation thing. The ball down to that there was also there was a piece I can't remember where I saw this. But former Obama advisor David Axelrod said that how he sees the debate and it stakes is that like Biden's really defined himself by being the notch trump of this race and that he really thinks that can only go so far. But in the debate by denise take some time to say here's what I'm about here's what I'm actually about in the positive sense as opposed to sort of positioning himself as the anti-trump the whole time that makes sense because we have been flooded. With a lot of trump right from briefings to campaign rallies. We don't hear a lot coming out of the Biden camp and we hear the president saying that he's been stuffed in his basement. So this could be a good time for him not only to prove his mental accuracy or capacity but as you said, just to tell the American people what he is about and obviously. Maybe convinced some people that you know might be leaning towards trot leaning not as die hard supporters like, okay. This guy can definitely handle the position. I think it's GonNa be very character based but I think that's what all debates are about, and that brings me to like certain things that I wanna hear coming out of the debate I want them to talk about the coronavirus I. Think it is insane that the biggest story in the past century is like not the key topic i. Want to see what their positions are about going forward.

"If trump collected I think there's a certain amount of of climate change that's locked in no matter what I think it becomes many levels more catastrophic if someone who has no intention of passing any climate policy and who on top of that has every intention of incentivizing more oil and gas drilling is elected it means that these discuss skating. Compounding, crises will come faster and harder and unfortunately because of the size and the influence of the US, it kind of makes that decision for the world, which is really just unfair and unfortunate and an awful a lot of a lot of ways, and then you mentioned this climate migration story. I mean that's true for a lot of countries that I think has been kind of overlooked. There's the the climate refugee crisis where people are being pushed out. Of their countries but there's also this internal migration that tends to cause a lot of pressure and tends to kind of exacerbate a lot of the so-called culture wars that we're hearing about in the. US. And then there's also the whole idea of you know what they call managed retreat, which is, how do we like take some preventative measures on this and help people move to somewhere that's more stable from a climate perspective so that it's not this emergency. Migration thing happening where people don't know where they're going to go. You know cities and towns are not sure about absorbing all these people. No one knows where folks are GonNa live it's it's a total nightmare i. know this sounds quite bleak but I don. Going well, I just really worry about not just the the sort of layered climate crises but like you mentioned before that, all of this is also happening I missed major racial injustice economic injustice. All, these systems kind of buckling at once you're a wellspring of hope. I know. You know what? Though it? It does seem to be a trend that like the more time somebody spends looking into climate change the slowly bleaker. Sort of perspective gets at least in terms of like the course that everybody's on right now, right now, there's a good essay the scientists Kate Marvel wrote maybe a couple of years ago. Now that champions the idea of courage instead of hope and I think that's kind of the right way to go. I'm also someone who I see climate as more of a power problem than an energy source problem you know it's sort of a a symptom of of larger systemic issues and therefore. It in the context of other long-term social justice movements where you know you have a lot of losses and you just keep going because it's the right thing to do, and you're trying to be a good ancestor and you're trying to like set the next generation up for. You know. For some sort of version of success. So. It's not super sunny, but it's resilience I love that I that I think that is a much better note on. Thank you so much. Thank you for doing this.

"That will increase greenhouse gas emissions. So let's look at the other side. So Joe Biden for his part you know that day, he the the day that trump said his comments science Joe Biden called trump A. climate arsonist if you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House. Why would anyone be surprised if we, have more America blaze. It'd be a climate denier four more years in the White House why would anyone be surprised when Moore America's underwater and that's pretty strong language like he's built his whole response on this through line that trump is anti-science and he's he's actually used that argument to bleed into his. Critique of the trump krona virus response, but I just want to. And talk this idea of Joe Biden a some kind of climate radical. I mean he's not. He's just not Joe Biden is the poster child who centrism his entire career is this like statue of Centrism. So for those who vote based on climate change and for the Progressive Wing of the Democratic, party that he of course needs lockdown does he have the range like does he have the credibility I do feel like in this weird way the the fires on the West Coast have enabled Joe Biden to say things a lot more strongly than he has in the past. So there's that but then you know he has had these climate advisors that are considerably farther left him you know Bernie Sanders AFC. precaut- precautious a CO founder of the Sunrays Movement. So I think they've all kind of been steering him farther and farther laughed too. I mean, he's still I think just a couple of weeks ago is sort of defending himself as a supporter of natural gas stove said that doesn't make the Progressive Wing Super Happy I think there's a sense among. Progressives that the focus has to be get biden elected and then move him further left because there's kind of a better shot of doing that. Then you know convincing trump to do anything. So yeah. You say that but it over the past couple weeks to stars call my attention. One was in the new. York. Times and the other was by my bus renews colleague Ruby Kramer both on Bernie Sanders and both go a little bit in depth into how his role has changed after Biden, that nation and the basically both have the through line that Sandra's focus is essentially pushed. Biden further left so that he can actually excite the movement that Bernie's. Galvanized. But Bernie's like not mincing words these very openly critical of Biden. Still with the bargain campaign has got to do is not only continue to attack the record and end the rhetoric of somebody I consider to be the most dangerous president in the history of this country you got to do that but you got to give people an alternative or reason to vote for you other than saying I'm not Donald, trump, and that mean speaking about an economic program which. It is not as strong as I would like it. It's not the Bernie Sanders program despite with trump will tell you still suggesting that his policies are not that exciting to the left and we're forty odd days away from the election that feels like a pretty risky gambit doesn't. I mean I get that people that are super hardcore. Fans of Bernie would smell a rat if Bernie all of a sudden was like. I don't know maybe these moderate climate policies are all right. But at the same time I don't know how smart is politically for him to be. So kind of aggressively critical of Biden, it certainly is not a button that that Bernie's pressing lightly this close to the election, which I guess makes me wonder about the actual Biden offering on the environment because as much as he's trying to sort of contrast himself with Donald Trump maybe just isn't go far enough. Yeah I mean you know he's kind of talking. About stuff that would have seemed like a good climate plan ten years ago you know it's like we're going to rejoin the Paris Agreement and all these kinds of ideas that feel very like. Obama. Two point. Oh. But he did just a little while ago increase his plan for spending on infrastructure in green jobs to two trillion dollars over four years, which is a pretty significant increase from you know he was at one point seven over ten years. Think at one point he was like by twenty fifty we'll decarbonising now that's down to. Twenty thirty five and eliminating carbon pollution from the entire Konami by twenty fifty I. think a lot of the science again says really does have to be faster than that. People. Will say, well, yeah. If you contrast him with Bernie, it's not enough. But if you contrast him with trump, you know it's better than nothing right? It'd be real easy to say, in fact Joe, Biden's entire pitch for this election is a corrective donald trump and there are a lot of people who for whom that is very desirable and that is like the basis they want like make politics boring again. Yes. The big question marks still for me is how big is the group of people who are not excited enough about Biden and? Therefore one vote versus the people who are desperate to get rid of trump and will turn out to vote solely. For that reason, I, actually think to that in the context of of Ruth Bader. GINSBURG dying the election has taken on a new bent to, and you're seeing people say, Oh, this might actually turn out Republicans who were not excited to vote for trump might not have voted for Biden but were excited enough to vote for trump but will now make like a partisan line vote to get the. Supreme Court see boy. Okay. So I mean look the fires that burned. This year are are many these wildfires were destroying the west coast. The same year that this unprecedented movement for Racial Justice is happening. There's also there's a big PROPUBLICA story last week about how climate change will force a lot of people do move inside the US and it's particularly acute for poor people and people of Color and whoever wins this election obviously there climate change policies are going to have consequences for the. Whole World. So here's a tiny question for you, amy what are the stakes for the fight against climate change? Specifically.

"Or two or even three. Republicans. On this, they can't lose four I believe that's the the tipping point but you know. He can lose a couple and that's fine for them to get this through and McConnell is going to do everything in his power to keep everyone else in line and and get this through as quickly as as they. Can she keep seeing these clips of Republican senators from two thousand sixteen saying you know what it's you'll be irresponsible for President Obama Toronto someone of the Supreme Court and they should not pass it. The view that there should be a hearing in the Judiciary Committee for anyone that the president nominee. That's exactly what happened in two thousand sixteen because in two thousand, sixteen in February Rock Obama nominated Garlan and that nomination did not go through precisely because Republicans blocked it and that was in February Zoa Bama had nine months to push garland's nation through and they blocked it based on that argument it is like forty days until the election we're basically there how are they going to justify all of those clips that we kind of keep hearing from them in their own words? It's crazy I think the the wildest ones that I've seen are from when the Graham. WHO's the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee I want you to use my words against me. If. There's a Republican president in two, thousand sixteen and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term you can say, Lindsey Graham. Said less let the next president who whoever it might be made that nomination and you could use my words against being. You'd be absolutely right. There are some even after two thousand sixteen where he literally says hold the tape. Snag that if there is a vacancy in twenty twenty, we should not act on it, hold me to that and it just doesn't matter the prospect of another Supreme Court seat is just so alluring and impactful for Republicans that. They just it doesn't matter and the way that they're they're framing it is well, it was different twenty sixteen because the Senate was controlled by Republicans the White House was there was a Democrat in office in the rule is if there are two different parties, that's why we had to hold it open until the election and now it's not a problem because we're all in the same side but I think for those of us who covered twenty sixteen. That nuance was really not a part of the rhetoric at the time it really was we gotta let the voters pick in November, and then we'll go from there but it's you know these justices you have lifetime tenure they could be on the bench for decades and decades. It's such a long lasting impact that. You can't let a little thing like being called a liar hypocr get in the way. Of kind of achievement. So I wanted I was something that you mentioned a little bit earlier, which is trump's use of the courts because so he's consistently dangled the carrot in front of the Republican, base? And just about a week ago, he also released his Supreme Court sort of shortlists shortlist of people that he would pick from should've vacancy cup. so He's been trying to make the courts and election issue the same way that he didn't twenty sixteen as you mentioned, and basically the play is to maybe convince a lot of Republicans that even if they didn't like him I'm like the circus that accompanies him, they would like the the his direction with the courts. Do we have evidence that's worked and galvanized A Baseline of Republicans student actually join him. Absolutely, it would various successful in two, thousand, sixteen. There were polls afterwards I think twenty eighteen where they went back and talk to trump voters who said that the Supreme Court was very much a priority voting issue for them and you know the strategy has been as much. Craziness surrounds trump everything else he does he's played judicial nominations very sort of lower KC conservatively there's no no names on his short list that would make A. Run of the mill every day Republican voter blink twice he's not nominating Rudy Giuliani for the Supreme Court. Right. These are all accomplished prominent conservative lawyers and judges, and so they're hoping to show voters. We kept our promise on this in two sixty pledged to you that we were going to reshape the courts with committed conservatives, young committed conservatives, and we've done it, and if you give us four more years, imagine what we could do not just on the Supreme Court but on the lower courts as well. Then we should talk about. The impact of the trump presidency on the legal system overall because he's had two Supreme Court justices. and He's put more than two hundred others of the appeals and District Court levels. That is an incredible legacy. That's a live way longer past trump even if he stays around for eight years, even if he's re-elected right. Right. There are going to be fewer seats for him to fill the next four years because they were so efficient at filling vacancies and convincing older conservatives on the bench to to step down to give him a chance to Philby's seats during his first term. But what's interesting? It's not just that they're putting more conservative judges on the bench. It's that we're seeing that these judges. In some cases, even more conservative than other Republican appointees. So some of trump's judges, we see how they're trying to sort of move the law to the right on issues like abortion gun rights. A big issue right now has been holding police accountable for using excessive force, and we've seen trump nominees released siding with police in saying the court and the law need to do. More to protect cops when they're accused of misconduct. So it's not even just that they're they're more conservatives were Republican appointees. They are more conservative on these hot button issues than other Republican appointed judges and as they stay on the bench for decades and you know gain seniority and gain prominence, you know it's the idea is that their their views will will shape the law. Going forward an reshaped, the law. Depending on how many more Republican appointees are confirmed to join their that majority Not Returning to the election. For, a minute I guess for most of this year, we've seen the the fight over abortion kind of recede into the background a little bit. There are quite a few court cases of over the last year and a half or so and some of those challenges were expected to make it the Supreme Court, and we can no longer say that abortions on the back burner as an issue for this election what could be the future of Roe v Wade here If. Unlikely that there would be sort of one day case that it's an all or nothing you know. Wade is is now gone. It's it's more that we're likely to see a series of challenges chipping away at how the court has upheld abortion rights stemming from Roe v Wade which said you know there is there's a fundamental right to have an abortion You know it's it's unlikely that the court would would say there is no right to an abortion it's more likely. They would say you state government have more freedom to decide how you want to restrict abortion going forward their.
